This is a disturbing turn of events. I just loaned him a large sum of money to purchase a tote of bananas.
I guess I can kiss that goodbye.

I've organized a send off for him, and combined it with a friend's birthday party to defray costs.

He had an interesting way of showing affection.

Silver with his dear old Dad, Silver senior.
His Dad predeceased him twelveteen years ago after a tote of bananas fell on him, crushing his skull.

Darn Dallas,

When I saw that title I didn't know what to expect. I was sure in my mind that you never meant our silver Back as they live to be very old and he is just a young pup. I am sure that Nomad can say goodbye to his money after those pictures. :)

Sorry everyone, I'm still alive and kicking. Not very high mind you, but still kicking.

And yes Nomad, thanks for the excuse to not pay you back for all of those bananas. They always taste better when you cheat someone out of them.
