012 takes to the skies


Do you remember Mr. Pigeon 012? I first mentioned him in this post.


Since then Mr. P 012 has been to the rugby club bar for many a pint with his owner, has caused (too) many other rugby-shirted birds to be ordered and this week he finally got the chance to spread his little crocheted wings and fly.


Can you tell where he is?




Maybe this would help...





Mr.Pigeon's owner is taking flying lessons and after much badgering I persuaded him to take "Percy" along and take some photos to prove that crocheted pigeons really can fly.


Here Mr. P prepares for take-off...






...and sits on the throttle keeping a beady eye on all the instruments...







Mr. Pigeon 007 was understandably jealous as he has only ever flown with easyjet where you have to pay £2 for a cup of tea in a paper cup. So when we went to Cumbria for the day, 007 was taken here for some real afternoon tea with pigeon-sized apple turnovers, fruit cake and the biggest scones his little acrylic eyes had ever seen...






Not a bad life for two woolly pigeons :)

Not too sure I'd like to be where 012 is but I'd really like to be at the tea shop with 007, those scones look delicious. Lucky pigeon.

007 will never be able to fly if he eats all those goodies! Looks like you had a good teatime. Lucy x

I hope that poor pidge is ok living with a rugger bugger. They are a terrible lot, they play all sorts of horrible drinking games, and have been known to drink their own....I can't repeat it, it's too much for me to bear, I htink I need to track him down and rescue him!

Wow Mr P012 is living it up!! Shame they didn't photograph him a few thousand feet up....then again that may have caused a nasty mid-air accident. Can you imagine the reporting on that one?

'Plane crashes as pilot photographs acrylic crocheted pigeon at 10,000 feet'.

Not wishing to cause offence but has Mr P007 swallowed one of those humungous scones whole?

Just asking!

Oh flying lessons, so much fun and Mr P gets some wind beneath his wings too! The tea looks amazing too.

I never knew that pigeons got out and about just like we do! Good to see!! At least if we need a great morning tea.... just drop into a pigeons house... great taste... those scones look beautiful!!

i'm starting to feel relieved that i did not manage to bag one of your birds - life up here in the very North of Scotland may be a little dull for these high flyers......
however
if you do by chance make a pigeon that seems a little shy and reserved or fancies himself as a bit of a farmers helper - then give me a shout
(please, please, please!!!!)

loving the cake shots....
