Well, I am very, very happy to read the "happy ending" to this story. Man, there were some great people involved in saving this lovely little pigeon - Pixie, who initially rescued Nugget/Opus, TerriB who picked him up from Pixie and continued his care, and now Landy who is giving him a forever home. Life just can't get much better for a pigeon.
Pixie, it is great hearing from you. Sounds like a lot of traveling across the country for you. Maybe you can get some well deserved rest after all the primaries - at least for a while.
Landy, many, many thanks for giving Nugget his new home. His girlfriend is a beauty.
And, TerriB - you are the greatest!
