What do you mean – that these things “bring Rufus back to the limelight” ?
Well, take a look. More people know about him again, and anybody who wants to know more can now find out easily.
Hey, that’s pretty cool. Did you write the article?
No, I’m afraid not – but I’m delighted that a mystery somebody made the effort to do so.
You really don’t know? The writer seems to be as up to date as can be – it must be somebody you know, surely.
That’s quite likely. But whoever it is has made some annoying small errors that we need to edit out.
Oh yes! Look, he says Rufus died on 18 November – it was the 17th, wasn’t it ? And wasn’t his mum, Nellie, General Harry Lukin’s sister, not his niece?
She was indeed – and you can see the resemblance in these pictures. But why did you say the writer was up to date – how can you tell?
By the list of references – it even includes a Calgary Sun article from 21 October, only five days ago.
Hey, let me see that! I never saw that article before! Good for Michael Platt – let’s give readers the link
I’m having another look at that list of references. Do you know something really funny – the Wiki article included references to everything under the sun – but guess what it left out.
You tell me
It left out your book!! It’s mentioned in the text, but only because Dave Obee referred to it in the Times-Colonist. All that work, and you don’t even get a reference! What a hoot!
Look, even Rufus is having a chuckle. As you say – what a hoot! He can’t wait to tell Bee “ALL about it,” as she would have said.
This was Bee in 1969 – 36 years after Rufus died.
