Yesterday was a day of mourning for Dan.
The garbage truck showed up and emptied all the dumpsters so there went his old faithful friend, the cap he finally tossed out.
After posting the story about Dan giving up his hat, I had emails and posts from guys who knew exactly what Dan was going through….like parting with a comfortable old friend.
So, to all of you who understand the loss, offer a moment of silence for all those tattered old caps, all those old torn flannel shirts (especially the insulated ones that are torn and the insulation material is coming out…they can burst into flames easily when working with a small, handheld propane torch..don’t ask, just use your imagination), all the old comfortable briefs with the elastic waist shot; all of those favorite things that have gone before
Donations can be made in Memory of RIP-OFF (which stands for Rest In Pieces Old Faithful Friend).
