I am sorry I haven't been visiting lately. Our internet is being terrible, far more off than on. We change providers on July 15th so hopefully things will get back to normal or better than normal. Our flashbacks are scheduled about 6 weeks at a time so will still be here. I will visit as and when I can in the meantime.
Warning to the Trout Town Tabbies! Don't read any further!!!
This week the flashback comes from July 2010 and is called:
Flynn: Hey what are you doing here? This is my sunbathing spot.
You're supposed to be afraid of me, why aren't you flying away?
You do realise I could have you for my supper don't you.
Hmphh, if you are going to ignore me, I will turn my back on you too.
Oh good, mum's fattening him up for us.
Eric: If I watch him from behind this wire mesh he won't be able to see me.
He has come closer, do I dare pounce with mum watching me?
Huh! The cheek of it. He is drinking our rain water now.
Note from mum:
We had heavy rain and very strong wind the night before these photos were taken. The pigeon is a ringed homing pigeon and was probably exhausted from the bad weather. He was looking very sorry for himself and let me catch him. His ring had this year's date on it so this is probably his first year of racing. The boys were very interested but couldn't understand why he wouldn't fly. wThat is most likely what saved him as there is no point in catching something that just sits and looks at you. He is now looking much better and flying as soon as I or Eric and Flynn approach and should very soon fly back to his own loft.
