RIP Merlyn

[ #28914 ]

[To all you perl geeks reading - I don't mean randal]

        Well, I was all due to post another photo from my San Francisco series,
        when very suddenly today a pet we have had for 14 years, our Cockatiel
        called Merlyn, passed away at the vets while trying to figure out why
        he was breathing strangely.


        He was a wonderful pet. He could not sing in tune but bless him he
        tried. He wanked while visitors were around. He loved people. He would
        screach at me in the mornings if I did not visit with him. He brought
        us great joy.

        The above is the last photograph taken of him, just a couple of weeks
        ago while he was enjoying a cracker.

        Rest in peace, Merlyn. We loved you.

            Merlyn Sergeant, 23 May 1992 - 7 March 2006

      Luckily for me, I had already seen Merlyn logged in this morning ... since by the time I read this title, he was not still logged in.
