We lost a Wonderful Soul in Blogland this week,Grumpy Old Man.....


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For more than five years this wonderful wise old soul was a part of the action here in Blogland, cursing Bush and his Regime, telling us stories of his life abroad with his lively wife.He turned 75 just a little over 3 weeks ago. He taught us how to be angry,how to cuss,how to laugh,how to fight back...he was truly a good soul. I was lucky because I got to be friends with him writing him offline,sharing our love of the Northwest. He died last Thursday, he did not feel well, and died of a heart attack on the way to the Hospital, he died in the ambulance.If you wish to write to his lovely wife please email me- I have contact information.His wonderful blog is still up, his last post on Veterans Day was one of his best.

Always sad to hear about a blogger passing. Sometimes it's tougher when one just stops blogging or their blog disappears and you never hear what happened or why. At least when we know they have passed on, there is some closure.
