St Patrick’s Day Eve in Kingston, Ontario

All Hail

I sit in my new recliner – a recliner that I am unable to footplate -return because I have no strength left in my stunted Irish legs. I am too old. But not too old to institute a strengthening programme so I can achieve footplate closure with ease.


My wife, Hermien, sits beside me in her recliner – like a scene out of Retirement in Ontario for Emigrants.




About stilesroad

Retired corporate monkey and speakeasy doorman. I done taught some and whittled some; I sought the divine with a divining rod and got my foot caught in a groundhog entrance - to prostrate self before the mammal gods and, finally, wept for my hawthorn tree and the escape lane opposite.
