The end of an era
At 5.05pm today, Chompie passed away peacefully in mom's hand, aged 35½.
It will be extremely bizarre, for he is the same age as me and... in my life I have been away from home and such, but there's never not been Chomp. Until now.

Sorry to hear the sad news. Chomp was a delight to know. Probably the only bird since my budgie died when I was about eight that I have felt I had any relationship with!
Mark you, he wasn't too happy in France outdoors when there were birds of prey about!
But happily his carers were aware of this.
Is he a record for longevity or not?
He was certainly a game bird!
(Felicity? Marte? Find out!)

It's a simple substring match.
