Talking

Tommy Girl


Hi, All,

It's been such a long time since I have posted here! I miss this place! I don't really remember the last time I posted an update, but I do believe it's been at least a year.

I'm now living in Nashville, TN. I have two pigeons with me here, Tommy Girl (who I got from Pidgey when I met him in OK last December) and Puffy, who I rescued while walking to my car after playing a gig. My turtle, Benji, also lives with me here.

I play music here and also do a lot of flying. I love to fly with my birds. No, really. I'm working on my tail-dragger endorsement and recently received my first aerobatic flight instruction. I can't wait to fly airshows! Tommy Girl loves to go up in the air with me and do a couple of rolls and loops. She sits on the dash and preens herself.

Here are a couple of recent pictures.

Lots of Love,
Licha

Well, actually, she's wearing a pigeon diaper. The towel is so that she can keep her footing on the slippery dash.

Yeah, T-Bird has me trained well: I even do her flying for her!

That's one lazy bird.... travelling by plane.

Seriously, I love those shots of her up there with you, they're priceless.

Good luck with the flying, sounds like great fun.

It's really great to be back. I really miss Shi... it was hard to even post this thread while trying to believe she wouldn't see it...

Here is a picture of my other bird, Puffy. Puff-Puff looks very similar to Tom-Tom.

These are all great pics. I can almost here Tommy Girl thinking... "Ah now this is flying first class" She looks like she loves flying with you. How did she react the first time she went up in the plane?

Congrats and good luck with your flying, sounds like fun!

She's always loved to go for car rides--just about as much as a dog--and, to her, planes were just another means of transportation. She loves to go new places. She's actually a good co-pilot: a lot of times she sees other planes out flying before we do!

Suppose if you were ever to get lost, you could just let her out & follow her
