This is a question Black Sheep

Every family has their black sheep, deserved or not. We're still not talking to an uncle who "borrowed" the capital from the family firm, causing it to collapse and leaving my dad out of work for 4 years in his mid 40s. Who aren't you talking to?

My uncle Geoff, the ultimate Eighties business man.
I was well impressed with my uncle Geoff as a kid. He was well spoken, confident, obviously well-heeled, and drove a 7.7-litre Jensen Interceptor. They don't build 'em like that no more.

Anyway, having divorced my aunt and left their two kids to grow up as delinquents (older of the two kids was expelled from school at fifteen for stabbing another pupil) I learnt that he made his fortune as a timeshare dealer back in the Eighties. For the very young b3ta readers, being an timeshare dealer, especially in the Eighties, was not entirely disimilar to being a cocaine baron.

What am I talking aobut? I love the guy.
