God damn left shoulder muscle hurting like hell, it's always been a problem, but last couple of weeks it's been especially bad. Had an unscheduled appointment with my osteopath yesterday, but today it's just as bad.

My Dad has just passed away, he was 93. A gentle man and a gentleman - he could never understand why people were so horrible to each other, I wish we all could have lived in his world, it sounded like a wonderful place. I'm going to miss you Dad.

Thanks, guys.

He flew P47 Thunderbolts in Burma in WW2. After basic flying training everyone wanted to fly Spitfires, so he volunteered for the P47 aka Jug which was short for Juggernaut; the heaviest fighter in the war. It was one of the few propeller aircraft that could reach the speed of sound in a dive and catch the Japanese Zero (when diving). Dad said it was a fantastic aircraft to fly.
