Thread: Swell news

    Swell news

    After the wanton and dark-of-night slaughter of a dozen pigeons by a raccoon last summer and then questions raised on the viability of the three replacement birds, this is swell news.
    Hopefully, the young pigeon will survive this cold snap.
    While I have my doubts, one will see...if nothing else, the loft has been reenforced to a level worthwhile of the title, Loft Knox.

    If the young pigeon lives, I will name it Comma.
    Do not forget pumpkin!

    Because commas are like mommas? They make you pause.

    And, if it doesn't make it you can call it comma tose.

    But a good name if you had two.

    What's the difference between a cat and a comma?

    A cat has claws at the end of its paws; a comma is a pause at the end of a clause.

    Or, in a series, including the Oxford type.

    The name "Semi Colon would have given the bird a first and last name. Very formal.
    TOLERANCE is the virtue of a man without convictions.

    Well, at least semi-formal.
