The pigeons flew back and have staged a strike. NO MORE FLYING TO RUSTON-they do not care what wildlife has been spotted there! They noted there was plenty of wildlife in the water right in front of them. If you want the wildlife report from Ruston-to there yourself!

The Thompson/Conville's are deep in thought. What is to be done with "The Yankees and Aliens"? There seems to be no way to discourage them! They are always around and sticking to us like bees on honey.
Here are the Yankees reading Potterisms and light Anatomy Facts.

They are always together and seem to think holding hands will present a united front. United we stand-yada yada yada.

We put the Alien Father in the water and attached the Young Aliens to his back and pointed the way to Mexico. All without avail!

We sent Yankee Boy & Alien Boy out in kayaks-thinking surely the tide would take them at least to Havana. We look up and here they came floating back up to shore. Just like the jelly fish-they keep sticking around.
We tried to hitch a ride for the entire group of Yankees and Aliens on this plane when it went sailing by with no luck.

The sun is setting after another beautiful day in Florida. We sat on the beach until the last rays disappeared. Another great day. We may let these Yankees and Aliens stay around after all it is only a couple of more days. OH NO-ONLY A COUPLE OF MORE DAYS!
