Sad times in our household this morning: daughter's gerbil passed away during the night. He was a rescue gerbil. Gerbils are meant to be social creatures but he'd had been bullied a lot by his siblings so had to live alone. He was very sweet. RIP Little Fat Rick.
@Luke This post brought bad sad memories of Gromit. I wonder if my street could do a minutes clapping at 8pm in his memory
@Luke See also our adventures with Chewie, the gerbil. Also, now sadly departed.
@Luke I hope you appreciated the perfect symmetry of ''HE'S DEAD, DAD, HE'S DEAD. LOOK DAD. HE'S DEAD !' when the following 'ALIVE' bit.
That took me flipping ages.
Struck me there were so many more fun things to blog about when the kids lived at home.
@andyc I enjoyed both those posts!
@Luke 'Little Fat Rick' - RIP. Weird and quite sad to hear that small rodents indulge in bullying.
