Farewell to Mister Glenn Popo

Ladies and gentlemen, the world has lost a legendary ‘fro. I heard today that Po, the cockerel I managed to pawn off on a friend, has gone to the great henhouse in the sky. Died in his sleep.

He’s the one, you may recall, who inherited an entire harem when he moved, including a lady turkey. Though, I must say, the turkey didn’t care for him so I don’t think he got very far with her.

He was one of six internet eggs I hatched nearly four years ago. I called him Po – or Popo – because that’s what was written on his egg shell, presumably short for Poland. The little girls at his new home called him Mister Glenn Popo. Little girls, eh?

No, he couldn’t see very well and, when startled – and he was startled a lot – he would zoom around the garden and bump into things with much loud clonking.

I don’t like posting when I lose animals, but I have bugger-all else to say for myself. I sat around in the comfy chair all day.

Poor PoPo, he’s in a better place. R.I.P. 🌹

Died suddenly in his sleep, eh? Was he on Pfizer chickenfeed?

No doubt he failed to skim the foam off his latte before he drank it (tries to nudge the conversation back to coffee as it is a happier subject in a world beset with sads)

Or maybe he finally caught up with that turkey chick.

Or maybe …. He’s one of those birds that flew that I keep hearing them panic about in the news and he jumped across to the a human…and….eh? Bird FLU? oh! Never mind!

Oh! Oh! a subject that will make you straighten up and take notice (but before hurlable objects start flying and I beat a hasty…retreat)

@durnedyankee – The quote “What I love about metal-detecting is that absolute surprise of what you find, and this certainly came out of the blue!” caused me to actually laugh out loud.

That think looks like some kind of hinge or latch.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
