The Last of Benny's 18 Entries in our Gorgeous Tome - September 22nd
B's Last Ds
Benny's final farewell to Hajji. A flurried scribble while RyanAir waited. By this guy....
Yeah, this guy...
"At Pescara Aerodome! Last day, last minute, last second to none. The Hajji journey was everything a man could want, thanks for letting me steer the ship once in a while. Zoroastrian blessings for the remaining 10,000km, may the Hajji never know pain again. I love you Hajji. I love you Marcus. I love you Lauren. You make loving fun. Watch the grind in 3rd, and make sure to rotate the tires. See you in Canada at Christmas, love for Mama, careful with sauce, the HAJJI WAS THE BEST!
There ain't much more that can be said about this duster, that hasn't already been whispered or screamed aloud by those who know him, or by those who wish they did. Benjamin Arthur Paylor is 33.333333% responsible for Hajji, for this trip, for the magic that has come of it, but if I were a math-man I might attribute more to him. He was a magnificent sherpa all along the way, lugging and tugging the load, boosting the morale, fueling happiness, making wet what is all-too-often dry and disgusting. Bob - the Hajji and her Captains miss you. You are welcome back anytime.
Love and spit, and egg shells and aspirin,
