Thought this an appropriate day to bump this thread.

Papa and his wife are spending the day attending and speaking at various Veteran's Day remembrances.

If you've never taken the time to watch the videos or listen to the podcasts in the OP, I highly recommend.

Powerful stuff.
All of the Vets at the Cigar store hanging with Papa this morning.

Say a little prayer if your inclined. Scary quiet at the cigar store as Papa's son just tore out of here -

He got a call from home that Papa is "unresponsive".

Damn

<UPDATE>

False alarm. He was having some sleep issues and took a sleeping pill. It really knocked him out, to the point his wife could not wake him. Son found the bottle on his night stand and he woke shortly after...out and about at the smoke-shop the next day playing cards and smoking his cigar!

I have to wonder what sleeping pill was? In the elderly, even Melatonin can too much.

Good to hear he is back.
