To honor a comment on the last post, I bring you a beard font. Just for fun until we are moved in and can post pics of the new place and let you in on what’s going on with the Hobosoul.

Goodbye Dick

Dick,
I hope you enjoy your new home. It might not be as cool in West Covina as it was on the Westside. You might not have as many visitors as you once did. It might be a bit lonely. Please, enjoy your view of the golf course, of the open fields that surround you. The Hetzels will look after you, I’ll be by to visit every now and again, and you’ll be thought of often. Even in our new home, buddy, we mistakenly refer to our Airsteam as, “the Winnebago”. Perhaps you can come and join us sometime, but for now, sleep well. You’ve worked hard the last four and a half years.

We’ll see you soon.
Jeff

Home Sweet Home
