halfway

Today marks the halfway point in my planned chemo schedule. It's a pretty big milestone for me as I feel like the long tab up hill is now a gentle jog down the other side, still I wish my Bergen were lighter and I wasn't carrying the LAW, if you know what I mean?

Observed my minutes silence at 11, not quite the same, not being at the Cenotaph and all, but nonetheless 'We will remember them'.

Hope the Dukies had a smashing weekend and sank a pint or two for absent friends. As with every year, I am planning on attending next year.

FYI the Duke of Yorks Royal Military School is the high school I attended from 11-18 yrs of age. It's a boarding school so the friends I made there are firm friends that I will never forget. Once a year, around Remembrance Sunday, the old boys of the school return to participate in the remembrance parade and regret the amount of alcohol consumed the night before. It's a fantastic weekend that always leave me longing for simpler times.

Signing off now before I start rambling about how the Army was just an extension of boarding school .......

Don't worry about the LAW, if you get tired of carrying it, you can always bury it. =) Hopefully it's all downhill from here anyway.

Let us know if you are in the mood for company; it'd be a nice break.

Take care,
Dave

Hey man:

Congratulations on reaching the halfway point. I hope the treatments are getting easier to deal with.

All our best.

Hey Justin,

It was great to see you at Apple today. I (and it seems everyone) misses you and your unique brand of humour. Get better so we can laugh more.
