Way to go maggieboomer - Sure wouldn't want any scratch or dents on that Texas Holdem Pink Chicken.

I see you've even provided him company so he won't get lonely fhe next year. Don't know what you're gonna do if you have a passenger on down the road.

What a hoot, MaggieBoomer! He does make a good traveling companion...although he doesn't talk very much, does he?

Make sure the critter is secure when driving
because if you hit the brakes too hard...
You could flip the bird

Doggy Daddy...I've already dropped that bird, broke his legs off and left him face up with little nubs sticking out...all the Texas Boomers who were at our Memorial Day rally will chuckle ....again!

He is pretty indestructible......however you do make a good point for MaggieBoomer's consideration! After looking at the pic again, Carolyn, I can see where one quick brake jab COULD send him straight out of that seat belt and through the windshield!!! He weighs about 30 lbs...He could do some damage to your MH!!!

And as I envision this "pretend" scenerio.....what would happen if he flew through the windshield, skidded on the hood of the MH, flapped across the concrete expanse and crashed into something else on the road!!!

Here's the scoop

Jim I don't think they are "love" birds, but only time will tell.
Now the rest of you must hear the story of how they bravely rode out the washboard that I took Mike, Harry and Norma down. After we finally arrived in camp the poor pink bird had fallen down in the floor but the big strong metal bird was ridin' steady.
I think he is a male, I like my men strong and silent
Now I don't want to hear anymore about my directions or the lack of them

Uhhhh Sandy I THINK he was makin a tongue-in-cheek comment about "Flipping the Bird". (And not the metal bird getting turned over either )
