I've had a draft for a post about this 1940s randonneur in the style and meter of Coleridge's "The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner" half-written for so long, the unsold item listing has disappeared from French eBay. Which is frustrating.

But the truth is, all I really want to do is celebrate the beautiful lines on that kid seat. [thanks dt reader gf-r]
