Entropy looked for him for weeks. Varmint will be missed.
How did Vermint get his name? Sometime before Varmint was born, the moorage manager called my little Black Bizzel "varmint". That was incongruous, but the name certainly fit young Varmint. I still have a few water pistols left over from Varmint's misspent youth.

Varmint helping with flight planning
'Tis the gift to be simple,
'tis the gift to be free,
'tis the gift to come down where you ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
'twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gained,
To bow and to bend we shan't be ashamed.
To turn, turn will be our delight,
'Til by turning, turning we come round right.
-- Shaker hymn immortalized in Aaron Copeland's Appalachin Spring
