He met and married Esther Campbell in Scotland. They live in Ottawa, Ontario. As an adult student at Atkinson College, York University, Toronto, he earned his B.A.

(English). When he retired he and Esther planned on living in Europe. This they did for twelve years after which they returned to Canada. A second twelve years passed before he decided to write a book about their experiences in Spain, France and Portugal. The book is called The Little Poppy, sub-titled, The Diary of a Retiree. The author has combined well developed powers of observation with practical analytical skills to produce a thoughtful diary style narrative which will keep you reading well past your bedtime. From the vague thoughts of retiral, we are taken to the point, when after twelve years of retirement, he has decided that the time has come to retire.

On the way his descriptions of people they met are illuminated by appropriate anecdotes, his descriptions of places visited will whet the appetite of anyone considering a visit, lists of flowers photographed (555 specimens) will be of interest to amateur field naturalists and to the ever growing group of conservationists. All in all, a very useful, entertaining and at times light-hearted approach to retirement. It could be a guide for many a one of the oncoming Boomers.
