    Well little my Polish lady Helena passed away this morning after I came to work. I don't know why or what happened, she seemed fine when I left for work but my mom called me at 11 to say she was dead. She and her sister Spikette were my first little Polish, then came Dapper Dan. They are all gone now and together again I hope.

    I was actually going to let go some of my mutts and have more Polish and Frizzles but she was my last Polish. A real lady to the end.

    The worst part was telling Steven; his other hen Charlotte died while he was in basic training, now he goes to school and Helena dies. Thank you all, it's nice to have those who understand!
