It's been said that it's never a tragedy when and old man dies.
But it sure feels sad.
Hakuna, the monster beast pictured above, in his New England dead-of-the-winter youth, passed on this morning just a month shy of his 15th birthday. He pretty much milked everything he could out of his body. It was was fully used up and worn out.
If you ever had the chance to meet him you know what a character he was.
I understand grief comes in waves. I will miss this creature immensely.
