Ode to Old Green


We gather together today to bid farewell to beloved family member, Old Green.

He was meant to reside in the basement, but preferred the living room.

All attempts to mask his distinctive odor failed.

His appearance lacked a certain sophistication, but exuded comfort.

Although completely void of nutrition, he became a nearly daily snack.

He was a game participant and a napping partner.



With heavy hearts we commend him - holey, stained, torn and slightly smelly - to the giant blue trashcan beside the back porch.

Good bye Old Green. We'll miss you.
