R.I.P. Big JoePosted: October 8, 2011
My relationship with my Big Joe was brief.
We weren’t really acquainted with each other that well yet…
and already, with my clumsy nature, I failed it big time!
I remember when I got my Big Joe.
Tatia sent me a message that KC had given her something to give me.
At first I was puzzled, “What could it be?”.
And as I was opening a rather large gift-wrapped box and saw the first light the glass reflected,
I realized what it was…
My very own Big Joe!
I was so excited and at the same time very grateful to KC that she remembered how much I envied Jules to have a Big Joe!
But just like Jules, I broke mine, too!

I m happy that no crisis has ever arouse to permit me to do that.
But still… it’s a sad loss.
