A sad event

We had a loss in our family this week….

Night, the One-Eyed Wonder Gerbil, was laid to rest this morning underneath a grove of pine trees. Everyone said a few nice words, and Maggie played her guitar.

His epitaph, written by the kids, reads:
RIP
Here lies Night The Girble
He was a nice Gerble
Died March 30, 2010

He was buried with his favorite coconut shell and, although Max says he is looking forward to having more space on his bookshelf, we will miss him.

  1. Woza, Night.
    I had 2 gerbils when I was a kid, Greg and George. George died young because he broke his front teeth somehow but Greg lived a long, grumpy gerbil life.
