Aye, matey.

I’ve posted this one before, but it still makes it into the favorites for 2010.  The eye patch isn’t original, I added that, but the pigeon sitting on my shoulder is real.  It was hanging out in front of the Chevron when I went out to clean something up, and ended up following me around for a while.  Click on the picture if you want the whole story.

Well he certainly found a true pigeon lover! You aren't as great a pirate as Mem Fox writes about Tough Boris in her fabulous picture book, (although his parrot dies) but see what an exciting life you can lead just by going to work! I hope animal control put that cutie somewhere safe! Great story to wake up to! Thanks!

Animal Control let it go free down at the park. But that was after I finally convinced them that I wasn't pulling a prank and that there really was a pigeon following me around.
