Last night on my commute home I saw something disturbing on the road.
It was a small, furry, headless creature.
I was shocked and stunned. It was Garfield - my Garfield. He must have slipped off my bike on the commute the night before.
I've had a small Garfield clipped to the back of my bike since 1987. He has travelled thousands and thousands of kilometres with me. He has crossed Australia 4 times and was going to come with me again on my Perth to Hobart ride next year.
To find him there was pretty sad but to have to search further along the road to find his head was very traumatising. (I still haven't found his eyes.)
