Kiss his ass, he said

“It’s a grand old 50-meter pool,” says Jack Crowe today in Wed Jnl, referring to Ridgeland. Yes, but not as old as we who played touchball and hit fungoes to each other in the late ’40s on the grassy flatland that was there pre-pool.

Where a guy named Duffy once told the lot of us to kiss his Irish ass. First time I’d heard it. Was a nice touch, I thought then. He said it confidently, facing us, got away with it easily.
