RIP: Tim’s Wallet (1987-2007)

Friday was a sad day in the Nicola house. Tim’s wallet, who valiantly held itself and it’s overflowing contents together for twenty years, passed away after a brief illness. For a while, we thought it would pull through and maybe could continue to lead a normal life with just 1/8 inch of leather connecting it’s folds. Once it reached this point, however, it deteriorated rapidly to 1/16 of an inch, than 1/24 of an inch, than 1/“measurement not available on our ruler” of an inch.




Tim’s wallet. You were a friend to many. You will be missed.



A wake and ceremonial burning will be held in approximately two weeks. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Wallet Deterioration Awareness Foundation.

Oh, dear Tim's Wallet...While you are irreplaceable, you have been replaced. The new wallet reported for duty on October 12th, 2007 at 7:00 pm.

You guys realize you could have repaired the wallet with ductape you would have gotten a few more years of service.

We thought about that, but laziness prevailed over ingenuity.

"than 1/24 of an inch, than 1/“measurement to available on our ruler” of an inch."

Does this mean it was infinity little?

Let me know on that.

Thanks-Bear

Bear-
You type pretty well for a cat without thumbs...er, any cat for that matter. I’m so proud of you!! I always knew you were outstanding in the field of excellence. Anyway, as for your question – I am not sure what you are suggesting.. The ruler wasn’t infinity little, the little bit holding the wallet together was infinity little. And if you can read a measurement that small than you either have a digital ruler or better eyes than we are led to believe (what with all of your miscalculated pounces).

Love and kisses,
Steph
