Hi Athena!
Glad I could make your mom's day! Let's try for another day--while the parronts were in FL just before Christmas for the dad's family reunion, they met up with his brother for lunch. Mom dressed extra nice in heels and a dress so the in laws wouldn't suspect she is a hillbilly redneck. They drove to a marina to schedule a fishing trip for the brothers in the family. At the dock, the fisherman were filleting fish, so you know what a crowd of pelicans and gulls they attract. Mom saw a pelican having trouble swallowing the chunks of fish. He had monofilament fishing line wrapped around his neck. Mom started pacing back and forth, asking if someone had a blanket, that he had to be caught and the line cut or he would eventually starve to death. Mom said she does "parrot rescue" so she can do this.The young man at the
marina leaned off the dock, caught the peli by his neck, mom leaped forward and pinned his wings keeping him still. Then Uncle Bill took out his pen knife and cut the fishing line. It didn't end there because peli had a fishing lure in the side of his neck. Mom asked if someone had a hook remover. Someone else from the marina went into the office brought it out and while mom held his wings down on the dock and that nice young man pulled the hook out of his neck. It was a superficial wound, so they let him go. Everyone sitting at the dockside bar applauded. Mom was mad that Uncle David didn;t get more pics, just a close up of her hands holding down the peli's wings. That was the highlight of the trip! Anytime we can help our fellow animals, it is such a good day. Love and winghugs (and can't wait until the Milonga!) Josh
