In this final part of his life and times, the focus is on Geoffrey's father - a taciturn, diffident Northerner with distinct and sometimes quirkily "interesting" views, likes, and dislikes.

We learn about life on match day at Bolton Wanderers football club in the 1940s and 50s - brass bands, cough lozenge sellers, and the different stance of some players who had been miners during the Second World War.

As his life and the death of his wife proceed, Geoff's dad moves from domestic dependence towards comparative self-sufficiency, coping with car accidents, visits to hospital, and the other perils of old age. All met with bracing degrees of stubbornness, idiosyncracy and eccentricity, until his sad, elegiac end.
