This took place between my boys today, while I was on my way down the stairs.
Callum was looking in the down stairs hall mirror.
Ashley-"You checking out how ugly you are boy" laughing as he said it and checking out his self.
Callum-" No! Just how lucky I am"
Ashley- "How so?"
Callum - "I'm the same age as Harry Patch was when he joined up"
Ashley- "Yer, but he didn't go to the front till he was 18"
Callum - "7 months from now I'll be 18"
Ashley - "Horrible thought that, being on a front line at 18 and people trying to kill you"
Callum - " Brave men"
Ashley -" Brave men, indeed and men still doing it"
Callum -"I'm not that brave"
Ashley - " Me neither little man, but thank God for those who are"
Callum- "Yeah, bless them, every bloody one of them"
Ashley - "Past and present"
Callum - "Past and present"
I just thought I would share it with you.
