Things are getting more and more interesting around da hood. I have to call it "da hood" now because of all the crimes that seem to be happening around here. First, it was the theft. Now, it is murder.

There was a dead body in our backyard. There was a gunshot wound.

It seems someone thought it would be a good idea to do target practice on pigeons, and this poor guy fell out of the sky and right into our nice, clean, normally blood-less backyard. My children found the body. Great. Now I am going to have to put them into years of therapy to heal their trauma.

Interestingly, the pigeon had a leg cuff on with an ID. Turns out it is a racing pigeon. Which brings up some other questions like, "How do you race a pigeon?" and "Who would ever want to race pigeons?"

I don't really have an answer for those questions, but apparently enough people want to race pigeons to warrant an organization called the American Racing Pigeon Union. Since this seemed to be a racing pigeon that someone wanted to race and who never made it to the finish line, I decided to notify the next of kin. Here is my message:

So to recap, first we have thievery going on. Then we have cold-blooded killings. When you factor in the occasional unexplainable bump in the night, it makes me start to think it might be a good idea to move away!


  1. Hilarious! You'd love my neighborhood and my neighbors. #1- Houses and feeds pigeons. #2- President of Humane Society and is outraged if anyone hurts pigeons. #3- Shoots pigeons from his back porch. #4 Sneaks over and feeds pigeons poison. and many more!

  2. side note, I dont' think you can toss animal corpse in the might have to stop by an animal shelter so they can dispose of it

  3. Hahaha...this is actually one of my husband's favorite past times! :0)

  4. "Trash day is Tuesday, please let us know."

    Too, too funny! Excellent again. Kent
