Tiberious Defaced!

My poor Tiberius was struck early this am by a drop-n-fly (as opposed to a hit-n-run). It is reported the offending product was deposited by one or more "feathered" culprits who live just north of where Tiberius berths for the night. I am more outraged than Tiberius who seemed to take it in stride ( though Tibe was a bit peeved that I refused to wash the said offended product off until I could take a picture of him). Here is a vid of the culprits, they live in the north parking lot to the marina. I would guess there are at least 400 birds of about 6 different species. BTW the punks nearly got me too! Thankfully, they missed so no need to bathe with bleach and seek mental counselling :)

Here is a vid of poor Tiberius who just got a bath last Thursday.... having issues with vid upload so here is a picture instead. Viewer be warned its yukky, so girdle your loin.

though it looks like a weeks worth of poop, this happened overnight, he was spankin clean when I parked him.

Wow! What a way to start the day. Those birds have some serious problems. =)

The local car wash is happy for all the business :-) maybe they are slipping the birds something.

BTW- Harvey says, and I quote "I knows nothin about no poop on Tiberius!" was quite indignant about it all, I am inclined to believe him (Harvey likes OG bowsprit).

That's what happens when you park at sketchy marinas all the time. Now, nice Katy driveways don't have that problem. :) Sea birds=poop, land birds=no poop.
I did not know about your blog. Well, I knew, but I did not *know*. You know?
Call me or write me sometime, being your sister and all. I miss you and look forward to seeing you on the 4th. We will swim and eat and swim some more. The kids are excited to see you also. I think Noel misses you most tho. He just asked the other day how you were and where the heck are you anyway?!
Luv ya! Alecia

Uh mom is that you? hehe. You make it sound as if we haven’t spoken for weeks! wasn't it Monday?
Glad Erika Lily is better, yes I will be there for the 4th with bells on! I will bring the potato salad.
Sorry I haven't come to see you all, work is just the pits right now. I know I have said this before but I swear my work thinks us nurses are robots, we need neither rest or food and can go from one stressful case to another like changing channels on a TV (violin please). So, I've been a bit isolated lately just resting, dealing with some tough situations, and staying close to home.
I am about to take a nap then I will try to call you.

BTW- Katy birds don't have the guts to poop on Tibe (tell em I said so). Harvey is chirping at me right now! I think he takes offence to your "sea bird" comment. If I was you, I wouldn't come around here for a while, unless you want a dollop sea bird "sun screen" ( it kinda looks like sunscreen):-).
Love ya guys,

Will I ever learn how to send a comment? I personally, would not mess with Harvey. Love ya, mom
