    Gwinnett parks: picnics,
    peace and pistols, please
    A couple of weeks ago, the county made it illegal to shoot guns in public parks.
    County officials insist gunplay has never been a sanctioned recreational activity. And firearm friendlies can relax - packing heat in the park isn't banned. You just can't go near a crowd with one, and, of course, you can't pull the trigger.
    We didn't know what problem this was aimed at, other than it's just not fun to take a relaxing stroll in a county park when there's gunfire around.
    County officials said the
    change merely brings an
    existing local ordinance in line with state
    law. The old ordinance banned guns outright
    in county parks, but state law does not. So
    the county dropped the gun possession ban
    in favor of a prohibition on shooting guns.
    Will the squirrels feel safer?

    I Saw this and scanned the article from todays AJC. Thought it was interesting

    +1 I get offended when they put free copies in my drive way. I just throw them out before I come in the house.

    If it was worth the drive, I'd take the free copy they litter my driveway with and do the same to them.

    He is a sweet guy, and he is the last survivor of the three I had. The other 2 (Slinky and Binky) died of insolanoma (sp?)last year and 2 years before. Minky is an old man now he is about 9 now.

    Hmm, parrot vs Ferret, in a cage match no rules just fightin'... :lol:

    When I was a very young lad, I remember some of my relatives had a monkey and a parrot. They got into a fight and the monkey bit off the parrot's beak. It did grow back eventually, but he was on soft food for quite a while.

    Being a good catholic family, all the young boy cousins were altar boys. This was back in the days of the Latin mass, so they would practice their responses, which the parrot picked up.

    Dad liked his beer. So did the parrot. I remember on numerous occasions watching the old bird stagger up and down along the top of the fence screaming out responses to the mass at the top of his lungs.

    His (?) wings weren't clipped and the bird lived outdoors during the summer. He'd fly off for days at a time, but always came home. Sorta like the dad...

    Actually, those were some of my less :screwy: relatives...
