“Gloom, despair, and agony on me
Deep, dark depression, excessive misery
If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all
Gloom, despair, and agony on me”

RIP Mr Yamaguchi.

That’s pretty parallel to what I was thinking.

Did he stop traveling after that? ;-)

Its seems that God already has blessed him despite throwing a couple of rough days his way in the past.

It’s from Hee-Haw, a show from the 70s. It was sort of a funny song written by Buck Owens. I’m dating myself! lol.

LOL, that is about the last guess I would have made. I thought it was from this song, which include the lyrics "if it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all."

Fuchida, the swashbuckling aviator who led the attack on Pearl Harbor, personally saw the detonation of the atomic bomb at either Hiroshima or Nagasaki, from a transport plane he was flying in at the time.

He survived the war and became a Christian missionary.

Has a bit of the “Appointment in Samarra” angle to it.

May God bless this man.

He blessed him with a long life. Or maybe not, but definitely in the wrong places at the wrong times. May God be blessing him now.

Met a retired German art professor who had fought at “Fortress
Breslau” a city Hitler ordered defended until the last man. He got out only because he was wounded two days before the siege of the city began. He was sent to a hospital in the rear—a hospital in Dresden. The firebombing started the day he got there.
