A Sad Day in the Forty-Hectare Wood

(That's still "the Hundred-Aker Wood" for us Americans.)

Paul Winchell, inventor, actor, ventriloquist, and voice of Tigger in many of the Winnie the Pooh cartoons, died early Friday in his sleep. He was 82.

The most wonderful thing about Tiggers is, they're bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun!

(Actually, 100 acres is slightly larger than 40 hectares, so I claim the extra 47 square metres [506 square feet] in the name of the Free State of Christiania.)
