Rupert, the last word


To the Editor:

On behalf of the neighbors residing on and around Leonard Circle in Vineyard Haven, we thank William Waterway for his assistance in finding a new home for Rupert the rooster. This is something that most of us have been trying to achieve for the last three years, with no success until now.

We also appreciated his clarifying, in the October 14 issue of the Vineyard Gazette, that indeed Rupert was very much a pet (albeit one without papers), because I don’t know too many “wild” animals willing to come inside a house to be fed and watch TV.

That said, viva le Rupert. May he have a long and happy life, just not on Leonard Circle.
