Happy Birthday Grandpa.

Manitoba
the Farm
Then came the war
A navigator by trade
Ansons over the prairie and Pacific
Alliford Bay
Left the city for the island
Vancouver
Met Kay
Farm and fruit trees
and 4 kids
One gone and now you are, too
But I will remember you
Whistling a tune
or jangling your change
in your pockets
Shaving
Pancakes
old tools and screws and nails in jars
tobacco tins
fishing rod
Bicycles
The smell of dried fruit
Canning jars
firewood
Arbutus tree
Gardening gloves
shiny shoes
Reader's Digest
the Summer
Christmas
