Yes, all that chocolate can't be good for him.

It's Remembrance Day here in Canada.
Although I don't go to any of the ceremonies, I try to observe 10-15 minutes silence around 11:11am. I think it's an important little thing to do.

My dear dead dad was born in 1925. His father died when dad was 10 so he dropped out of grade 4 and started working in a quarry to help out the family.
When he was 16, after lying about his age to get into the Forces, he found himself in London during the Blitz.
He retired from the Air Force in the mid-70s.
He never talked about his experiences except near the end of his life, when exceptionally drunk. It seems a bomb landed near where he just happened to be standing and he went into shock. Luckily a local saw him standing there and pulled him out of the street and helped him get his act together.

He was quite a guy. Very quiet, very humble, loved to laugh, loved nature, wore plaid pants. I wish we could have talked about what he went through and his thoughts, but in a way the drinking and drunken stories kinda sum it all up, at least for me.

God love ya, dad; and thanks for your service. I do try to remember all this shit more than one day a year.

I think he has the constitution for it, definitely. I'm like that with chocolate milk too.
