He's always been generous. Of course with daddy being
so wealthy money's never been a problem - although
I know that he's down to his last few billion. But, as he
said, there's really nothing to worry about. Just recently
he announced that he wanted to give me yet another
"What would you like?" he asked.
"I'd like a fan." I replied.
So daddy got me one, saying, "Sweetheart, this is the
best I can do."
I was delighted. I just love this absolutely fabulous fan
he gave me. It's by Clarke. He's such a marvellous designer.
