It’s like that nice old guy down the street passed away…

…and you always wanted to get to know him better, maybe invite him over for a beer. But you never got around to it…

George Austin, proprietor of the Guffaw in AZ blog, passed away a week or two ago after quite a long bout of cancer. I just found out about it this evening. He’d been in the hospital most of this year, so it didn’t come as a surprise.

I can’t claim we were friends. He commented on TUAK once in a while, I commented on Guffaw once in a while. Never even bothered to learn his name before this evening. Just needs saying – a nice old guy in our virtual neighborhood passed away, and we’re a little poorer for it.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    Never got a chance to meet him, but we talked virtually a couple of times. Seemed quite a pleasant fellow.

    Could have sworn I tested that. Fixed, thanks for the heads-up.

To the stake with the heretic!
