During the sixteen years I did not attend that ceremony I would go to the outdoor service in the nearby town.
In recent years I have noticed more and more people drinking Tim Horton’s coffee during the event. I suppose there’s nothing as comforting as sipping on a hot double-double during the reading of, In Flanders Fields. Hey Buddy, would you like a Boston cream or a walnut crunch do-nut to go with that coffee?
On my way to the ceremony last year I passed a fellow who smiled and said, “Happy Remembrance Day.”
Noooo … You’re missing the point!
I wonder what he takes in his coffee.
