RIP Frankie

We had a death in the office family this morning. Trusty Frankie, named after the great architect Frank Lloyd Wright, passed away this morning early. The funeral was a solemn but brief affair in the ladies bathroom. He leaves his trusty friend Corbi (named after another architectural great Le Corbusier) behind and a office full of friends. (yes, go Wiki those names and learn something)

Corbi in orange, Frankie in black.

Did I mention before that we have a relatively pet friendly office policy? Baby puppy M spent about her first week in the office, so has several other varied types of puppies and kittens. Also 2 corn snakes (only one day - I almost died and refused outright to come to work if they came again), 3 parrots (as babies) and now, a budgie - which is driving me bonkers! It is my secretary's baby bird that she is hand rearing but the freaking thing sounds like a slipping fan-belt as it screams my ears off at feeding time.

Gosh, I hope it grows big enough soon to retire to it's own home. Have to go now - to buy a new fish and find some peace and quiet.

Oh yes, and I will schedule this to post tomorrow - Blogger lost my long answer post I wrote last night which was meant for Saturday. Bugger!


  1. Day 2 of the Where’s Wenda? Contest is here. Today, I am visiting all of the SITStas that commented on Hot Chocolate Caramel Mocha. That means you! Thanks so much for stopping by and for being a great SISta! -Wenda

    BTW-sorry to hear about your cat.

  2. Stesha, you are reading too many blogs - it was only a goldfish.

  3. And you work in a zoo.

    Ba - dum - dum.

    Happy Fx4


  4. Following Wenda around all over the place! She stopped by my blog, too: come see! =o I like that you named your fish after architects. =)

  5. Visiting from SITS and following Wenda.

    Poor fishy fish fish. Hope you got some peace and quiet. ;)

  6. Oh, Poor Frankie! How totally awesome that your office allows pets and things (except for that snake thing...yikes!!)

    I had a budgie for years (and then 2 more for a shorter time) - and you're not kidding...MAN they're loud!

  7. Poor little fella! I pray he is happy in fishy Heaven.


So what's on your mind?
