Pigeon Pie in the Sky
Hopes raised again-no sign of Stool early this morning-but by 9-30 back he was on the bathroom ledge once more. He seems to be trying out longer and longer reconnaissance flights but his new homing mechanism brings him back here rather than Hartlepool or where ever.
The consensus of opinion at the Village Hall Coffee evening was that the pigeon would eventually home off. And it is apparently quite possible-as a bloggee has commented in the Bigg Bird Forum < http://forum.biggonline.co.uk/viewtopic.php?p=34541#34541 > - that its owner will welcome him home by wringing its neck as being a useless and unreliable racing pigeon.
Moral dilemma? Keep him here by force if necessary or let him go back to his cote and face capital punishment. Life imprisonment or the angry choke?
One villager mentioned how delicious Pigeon Pie can be.
So a tender and caring wring of a slender neck and a ping-of the microwave.
There's a thought.
