What Confucius Didn't Say

When you get to a certain age, you do a lot of thinking, maybe too much, but definitely a lot. The other thing you do a lot of is forgetting… so at the end of the day you are not sure whether your last thought is a new thought or reincarnation of the one you had earlier that day. A few years ago, after an active life, the author started to slow down a bit physically but the mind was still sharp and active, so as well as the daily newspaper puzzles that he completed every morning, he started picking up a pen and notebook and writing his thoughts down. This book is a compilation of these thoughts and opinions that have gradually accumulated over the years, seeing him out of his eighties and into his nineties. They represent his take on situations, events and happenings and he hopes the reader will find them thought-provoking, insightful and all being well humorous.
