Time to farewell this faithful friend as she heads out to pasture. She has been a big part of our lives for the last 13 years. Big Red arrived when we were 'camping' in the barn. She sat perched up on an old table found in the shed, always reminding us of her presence with a purr or a hiss. She was first into the house when we moved in and has been there every morning to greet us, she knew just what we needed.
But alas, she has officially popped her clogs, so out she goes. We can't live without her, so we have adopted another.
Farewell Big Red, you have caffeinated our lives for 13 years, you brought out the best in us and we will miss you... (until the courier arrives with your younger brother, already nicknamed - The Phantom).
