I just read in the Scotland on Sunday from a couple of weeks ago that
Norman MacCaig had lived to the ripe old age of 86 despite a penchant for
the drink and for cigarettes. A friend enquired as to where the
funeral was to be. When he was told the service would be a the
crematorium, he replied, "Aye, that's Norman. Smoking til the very end."
