R.I.P "Old Horsetailed Snake."

The Bl***ing world lost one of its best on March 7 "Ol' Hoss"

I am posting this tribute to a b**g buddy of a bit over three years
Hoss was a senior bl**ger with a truly great sense of humor,
he will be sadly missed by all of us who's lives he touched.

For a touching memorial post go here.

BTW Lois he must have loved that sweatshirt, he sent me a copy of the photo.

Hi Peter ~~ Sorry to hear about Hoss,
he will be missed bu many. I hope all is well at Wudinna, Safe trip back to Adelaide tomorrow.
I had Anthony and Debbie Gallagher for the day, but they didn't stay as I expected. Went back to Wodonga where their eldest son lives.Anthony is a firefighter, so has been busy, he is nearly 58 and is Frank's eldest. My walking is stillpretty darn painful, so I hope it soon gets better. Take care, Love to all, Merle.

Fine tribute Peter. I ran in to him a few times. Seemed like a truly clever one.

Well put. Since 2005, I have not missed a single post Gene made. From now on ... I will miss the posts he will not have made.

I found out about Hoss passing away when I read your blog yesterday. He was such a great guy. I'm going to miss him.

Hey Peter- just dropping by to commiserate. I'm missing the old curmudgeon like crazy today.

I'm still in denial. I believe he's still around and having us all on. Then again, maybe I'm just feeling his spirit present here in the blogosphere.
