I know it's been kinda somber around the blog lately, and today's not going to change that at all. These things seem to run in strings, don't they? I've got two more sad tales for y'all, and that will be it for tonight.

Little Eddie, that adorable Jack Russell terrier from Frasier, passed away at the ripe old age of 16. He was so cute. Moose, the dog who played Eddie, was replaced by his son in the latter years of the show.

A sadder note than that to be told, however. Rob Smith, AKA Acidman, from Gut Rumbles, was found dead in his home over the weekend. He'd been having some serious health problems since completing rehab, but it was thought he was improving. He leaves a grown daughter, Sam, and a young son Quentin, who lives with his mother. Rob was also survived by his grandmother. Rob was one of the first bloggers I read with regularity. It was his blog which made me realize I could write anything on my mind, and not be worried about hurting feelings. He always said what was on his mind, and frequently it was on the controversial side. But he never, ever, was malicious toward anyone other than his ex-wife, for reasons he spelled out frequently. Rob will be missed in the blogosphere.
