    It’s nice that Rowland Robinson’s handiwork lives on. I can remember Dad reading from one of his collections a story (somewhat confused in my mind but very funny at the time) a tale Antoine presumably told the gang in Uncle Lisha’s workshop. I recall it being a French-Canadian fable of a man with a vanity problem who somehow was changed into a kingfisher. The bird flew up and down the stream until it froze. Then thinking his reflection on the ice to be a rival, dove straight down to his demise. I don’t have this story straight, but I bet you probably do.

    Though I’m a Chittenden county native, and well-acquainted with Rokeby in days of yore, I don’t know where Robinson construed Danvis to be, or if there is no such place in Ferrisburgh or Charlotte, why he didn’t simply use either name. Any thoughts?

Please comment with your real name using good manners.
