Slightly different to the chat thread, if you have a good story, feel free to share!
When he's pissed after a few and looking at you all bleary-eyed, I can well imagine!I would spend my time generally sharing stories at the pub but after working at an CAMRA bar for a time I'm not sure I would, because usually the person I share it with lacks the nuance to understand subtext in 90% of it.
Don't worry, we can fix that.In a round about way, being on here has reignited my interest in creative pursuits eg animation and 'What Would You Do' style writing.
tsk, another sentimental animal lover. @Tiffany sort him out!I typically befriend the local wildlife. I have a few fox friends and birds that slink around the neighbourhood.
I'm watching it on CNN, love their coverage. Are you watching it? Shame it looks like the GOP is gonna win the senate. It's gonna go on throughout the night, so I'll watch it until I get too tired and then stop.Today is political drama day in the US. This is the voting day for the mid-term elections. Hopefully, people will behave at whatever the outcome is, but we are bracing for rioting again. It's all so stupid! Maybe the US needs to take a few lessons from the polite British.
Lovely stories Retro, and both took guts!I have a couple of short real life animal saving stories to tell.
In the 1990s, I was driving to work in the morning and coming up to a T-junction, when I saw a pigeon just sitting there in the middle of the road, perfectly calm, waiting to be run over. I wasn't gonna let that happen, so I stopped the car in front of it, turned on the hazard lights and unceremoniously popped it into the car. Note, that it was kinda risky stopping at that particular location from rear end collisions. I then drove to the vet round the corner and deposited it there. I'm glad to say the pigeon made it when I checked up on it later. Can't remember what was wrong with it now.
Another pigeon incident not too distant in time from that last one. I was walking back to my car after work, when I saw three thugs with an injured pigeon discussing how they were going to kill it for fun and laughing. I really didn't like the sound of that, so I walked up to them and offered to take it off them and despatch it, pretending that it was an unworthy POS, in the same way that they were talking. I thought they might turn on me, but surprisingly, they said yes!
I then unceremoniously put this one in my car and drove it home to my mum who's really good with animals. I can't remember the outcome for this one now, but it received the best care possible from her.
