On this, the 25th of April, ANZAC day, I thought I'd repost John O'Brien's story.
It has been almost four years since we lost my extremely impoliticly correct father in law, and grand pop to my kids.
He was known to blurt out such statements as the bombs that were dropped on Japan were not atomic, they were fertiliser bombs!! Because they did not stop them, they multiplied!
Not sure he would turn in his military grave at Pasadena or not, to be featured here. He wouldn't want the bloody fuss. I am sure he is proud as punch of his grandkids, in fact I know he would be. Not that when he was alive, he was the best at showing it to his offspring, but he would tell all removed who would listen, of their achievements.
Please take the time to read the legacy he left behind, according to Annette, his most beloved daughter in law, and read by his grand daughter Zoe, at his funeral.
