I didn’t know Ostriches could fly! :stuck_out_tongue:
Freakin’ big “dent.”


By bird, do they mean Piper?


I was hoping to see some bird parts mangled up in there.




If I said that I’d never hear the end of it. . . :confused:


Sad but true Will.

Good thing it wasn’t a cat!



What if I go all out on the bird thing, like dami did about the cat?

I’m a bird owner. . . I might be offended?


Go for it my boy.

We could all use a laugh.


I don’t wanna lock this thang. . .

And the last thing I would do is be offended! :laughing:
I don’t give a crap if some buzzard or crow gets hit. . . I have a turkey. :stuck_out_tongue:


Fattening it up for Thanksgiving???


I use a Cessna 210 to hunt geese.

No. . . He thinks he’s a dog, along with the pig. :stuck_out_tongue:

Never ride in an A320. Geese hunt them. . .
