A Pigeon Post.


Phone calls you hoped you'd never have to make #1.



Me: Hello, is that the Scottish Homing Pigeon Society?

Nice Lady: Yes.

Me: I'd like to report a dead pigeon. I have the reference from the ring on it's little leg.

Nice Lady: Thank you for taking the time to phone us. Do you have any idea how it died?

Me: Um, well, you see, there was this cat...........

Oh no! That makes me chuckle, sigh and shake my head all at the same time.

Oh! Poor pigeon. Poor you. Thank goodness the lady was nice.

Oh Dear! Kudos to you for having the uprightness to make the call.

(Shaking head slowly) "Magnus, Magnus, Magnus..."

Of course, if he were taking down pigeons in NYC, he'd be a local hero.

Oh, I'm just dying with the butterfly effect of it all! :) Magnus was just doing his job, that was good of you to call. I wish I had a number to reach someone for all the chipmunks Solly brings home...
