I'm sad to report to friends of Homer the Homeless Goose that his sole surviving daughter, Hazel II, died peacefully in her pen on Monday, February 6th after a very short illness. She was 14 years old and like Homeless people, she did not have health or burial insurance so I buried her in my front yard. A memorial gathering for Hazel II will be held at the Homeless Memorial on Town Lake on Saturday, April 1st at 2 pm. We will also celebrate Homer's 18th Birthday and kick-off a campaign to recruit and select an appropriate retirement home for the famous Goose. For those of you who don't know the story of Homer the Homeless Goose, a little history lesson is in order.
