What appears at the Google Doodle archive … replete with Google provided write-up on Douglas Adams.


To say I am still a HUGE fan of Douglas would not capture my deep-seated, profound relationship with this AMAZING man.

He was beyond genius. A rare, alas fleeting, talent.

When the Doodle said ’61st birthday’ by heart skipped a beat.
He tragically died so young. Aged 49, in 2001. I was distressed.

We were contemporaneous and compatriots, though alas I never met him.
I became a ‘Hitchhiker’ with the 1981 BBC TV show. I have it on DVD.
Both my older kids got to love it and I think Devanee has seen it once.

I have read all his books and I am sure I have nearly all of them

I often use Hitchhiker phrases and most don’t have any idea what I am talking about.

Just recently I signed off an e-mail to my papal blog regulars with what I told them was a biblical reference:
Goodbye and Thanks for all the fish‘.

Thank YOU, Douglas. You were the Man.

Thank YOU, Google. You made my day.

    Douglas is terribly missed. His brand of humour was unique. But it does live on in others like Neil Gaiman, and in comic novels like THE MYOSHI EFFECT. Happy Bday DNA.
