"Bugger of a day, had a fall and now I am in hospital."

Harry Leslie Smith, 95, WW2 RAF pilot and fierce anti-fascist (previously), had a fall while traveling in Canada and is in the emergency room. Things don't look good. His son John has taken over the account and is keeping everyone apprised: "Thank you all for keeping vigil over Harry with me. It truly is less lonely this way for me."
He sleeps deep, his legs jerking like he's riding a bike
And, I wonder if in his dreams, he's 7 again and riding on his uncle's bike from his grandparents' house to the moors, where he felt free from the sting of his poverty.
