    That is one cool-looking pigeon! It’s not only official, it even has its papers.

    When you’ve been at the laudanum a pigeon can look like a seagull. Are there any landgulls?

    The new UPS Air Delivery.
    Our gulls powered by clean bio fuels. Move up from Snail mail to a more direct form. When it absolutely positively has to be there overnight.
    Love his helmet however.
    Tic’s brother perhaps? News that his bro was killed by a mean old nasty Confederate Naval Commander. The message says “Need Revenge? I got a job for you. RSVP XOXOX.”

    I guess in the army it would be The Seagull Corps?

    Bird is a word…
    Feared yet admired the UH-1 slicks (if it can’t be fixed with a hammer, it must be an electrical problem; bend to fit, dent to match, always bring lottsa 100mph tape), but I was satisfied being an airman rather than one of the few, the proud, the dead, the marines…

    Ahhh. Be nice.
    It takes a brave man to be a Marine.
    Smarts are not a requirement.
    I have a copy of a make believe Army manual a Marine buddy of mine sent me.
    It says:
    US Army Survival Guide
    Page 1 Call the Marines.
    He is right. That is what I would do is send them in first to see if it is dangerous. I will cover their backs.
    Then when they have the enemy fixed in a fight with them I will flank the enemy and call in an air strike while lasering the target from a safe distance.
    Works every time.

    I think the bird is not a gull; they have webbed feet and so could not grip the railing, as in panel #2.

    Oh negative on the gull… flat webbed feet! However one good Tern deserves another, nyuk, nyuk, nyuk! and he’s outta here!

    pcolli: There are prairie gulls: Franklin, Ring-Billed. The Franklin was probably the one that attacked the Mormon crickets in the Salt Lake Valley. Franklins come around north Texas in huge flocks in December, followed by Ring-Bills around January.
