Shank's Pony

No. 1254 - 18 Feb 2008 - 14:25:57

Gastown, Vancouver

Shank's pony is is an old-fashioned expression that refers to using one's own legs as a means of conveyance and was apparently a favourite expression of my Swedish American grandfather Arthur Luther Hammerquist.

In spite of once being an enthusiastic walker I am currently a shadow of my former self.
