Ispidbol passed away at 3:00 pm yesterday, just two hours after I came home from an internet café.
His departure is inevitable, but I didn’t expect it that soon. It’s like he just waited for me to pay him his last tribute while he was still alive. Now my two questions are answered: Yes, that that second second chance is his last, and it lasted for a about four weeks before, and three hours after, I published the previous post entry.
Who will undertake the undertaker ?
Etymology of name: fast and swift; snappy
English equivalent: Speedball
Color: banded brown
Parentage: Blakdyak + Snow White
Litter group: Chiaroscurogang
Spouse: Teepee Pompom
Lifespan: 26 months 6 days
Cause of death: old age
Ispidbol at 6 months 5 days (Tower scene), 15 months 16 days (sunset scene) and 19 months 6 days (Wheel scene).
Traits and characteristics: Small and acrobatic. Give him a treat: he eats it right-away if a small piece, but takes and carries a bigger piece back to his resting spot. Unusual sleep-and-wake regimen, treads his wheel in the morning until up to 11 am – that is why he is a late-riser (6 pm). A persistent cage-deserter (“lakwatsero” – Ispidbol-bulakbol) when he was younger, refuses to be handled when outside his cage. Nosy – thrusts his head forward to smell the nose of his handler when the handler brings him close to his face. In later life, Ispidbol became a contented occupant and responsible steward of The Hall; he left not a single chew mark in any of its woodwork.

Great grand niece/nephew:
Ispidbol and his master have one thing in common. 😆 CLICK THIS for a short account his life.
Payo ng ilang kakilala (nung bata-bata pa ako) – yung mga wala nang masabi para lang basagin ang nakaiilang na katahimikan (some experts’ advice):
“Robert, mag-ampon kayo… paano na pag tanda nyo?” (Adopt a child… think of what will happen when you and your wife grew old.)
Ispidbol has no successor to ‘take care’ of him, but he has homebodyhubby as his master; I have no son or a daughter – but I have a Father. (Saka ko na problemahin yan, ‘tsong…) 😎
Eto ang mas “henyong” tanong:
“Pag namatay ka, sinong magpapalibing sa’yo?” (If you died, who will bury you?)
(Siya kaya ang ilibing ko nang buhay?) 😕 E di yung punerarya! 😆
Why should I worry about this body, if God can take care of my soul? 😉
