silly ignorant pigeons...can't say thick skinned won for them..probably the size of their little brain and how simple they view their life--must be nice.

Stay cool..I've got some rain here and by tonight temps will be about 40something..would you like me to send you some?

Oct in UK is cold and wet. Very cold actually and so windy that you could almost fly away
