Some of us are fortunate to have lived lives that could fill the pages of a moving tale of triumph over adversity etc etc indeed some of us are fortunate enough to look like the Hunchback of Note Dame …Well it was not so for my brothers  with a pater obdurate to the point of psychosis..I have clear memories of my elder fraternal siblings first day at school …father placed  him on the leather saddle of the family bicycle .. then shouting directions to the dog .. and returning to his treatise on” Internment of farmers during the Boer wars .” two o’clock father  tripped down the stoop to our Chicago residency to find my poor brother  still stationery …brothers legs finally reached the pedals on his eighth birthday  …he managed to arrive with his 5 yr absence taken into consideration  when the headmaster….thumbed through his rather remiss attendance record…..of course our dog was never considered to blame in the first instance…….
