Another skeleton
When my grandmother was about 70, there was a knock at her door. A woman was standing there, in her 50's, with long, dyed red hair.

"Is your name Grandma Swipe?" she asked. "Because I'm your half sister from wrong side of t'blanket!"

Turned out my great grandfather had two families, one from mon-thu and a much younger one from fri-sun. He got away with it because his job on the railways meant he worked away from home. Even though they were only FIVE MILES apart.

Guess it answered the question for my grandmother as to what happened to her dad when he walked out for the last time when she was about 16.

The dirty old bastard!
