Thanks for all the well wishes, my wife was amazed at the friendship this board has. The distinguished fellow is my father (WW2 service). He was on his way to Japan with the Navy when the war ended with atomic bombs. The little one is Thomas, and David is my other child (almost 3 years old). He has two toy guns (very politically incorrect I'm sure) and loves them both.
