WHEN I’M TRYING TO KEEP THE BIRDS FROM BEING SCARED AWAY BY OLIVER, I’LL PUT A PIECE OF CAMO FABRIC OVER THE BOTTOM THIRD OF A SLIDING DOOR. THAT WAY I CAN KEEP AN EYE ON THE BIRDS TO SEE IF THERE’S ANY ACTION GOING ON OUTSIDE AND THE BIRDS WON’T SEE OLIVER SLINKING ALONG ON HIS BELLY…TRYING TO SNEAK UP ON THEM.
YOU CAN SEE HOW WELL THIS SYSTEM (DOESN’T) WORK JUST BY LOOKING AT THESE TWO IMAGES….(SIGH)….OLIVER…MY LITTLE HELPER.
LIKE I SAID…I MIGHT JUST HAVE A SNACK…I THOUGHT I’D START WITH PEANUTS…AND THEN MAYBE I’LL HAVE A LITTLE ICE CREAM AND MAYBE A FEW MINUTES AFTER THAT I’LL HAVE A LITTLE CHOCOLATE…AND THEN MAYBE AFTER THAT I MIGHT RUN DOWN ZANNYRO’S FIREPLACE AND SEE IF SHE HAS ANY OF THOSE YUMMY LITTLE DRIED, SLIGHTLY SALTED PEAS…THEY ARE SO YUMMY!!
When flying as a pilot, one must always respect the landing and take-off style of others. Let’s face it, some pilots are just better than others. Sometimes you experience that wonderful, gentle landing…other times your glasses fall off and your dentures fall out from the impact of the landing. Some pilots make graceful turns, others have you laying on your side and getting to know the person in the next seat much more personally than you’d like to.
