chilly, but sunny.
have a surprise b'day party to go to tonight for
a very nice guy.
he was in WWII, was in the group that liberated/rescued
the men that had been on the batann death march.
i had dinner at his home once. he showed me pictures that they took
when they rescued the men.
war, any war, no matter the reasons, well
it just feels like a lead weight, knowing
the things that human beings are capable of.
isn't it odd, that we can be as a species, so noble at times and yet
so deliberately cruel?
anyway, this man came back, worked the mines, raised a family
cared for a dying wife and now, he still swims every morning at the Y
and comes out every night to have 1 or 2 drinks(no more)
says hello to his friends and drives home!
i'm looking forward to stopping down to wish him a happy birthday later! s
