A Sunday Feel-Good Story

I am willing to live to 89 if I can be this kind of 89: 

Late last night, a younger veteran called the nursing home to let administrators know that he'd met up with the old man on a France-bound bus, and they'd split a hotel room not far from the battlefields of Normandy.

The younger veteran reportedly promised to make sure the codger got safely home, just as soon as they were done celebrating their conquest of the Nazis and the fact that an almost-nonagenarian British pensioner is still such a complete badass.
