Persembe Peeves

The local Solid Waste District bought and closed the Burlington, Vermont, “Intervale” compost facility because that operation was unable to meet the costs of state compliance.

Flocks of gulls have moved to the St. Michael’s College compost area since the Intervale closed. That puts planes flying into and out of Burlington International Airport at risk. I fly into and out of BTV. The Green Mountain Boys fly into and out of BTV. Hitting a goose is one thing but to be brought down by a frigging sea gull?

  1. Back in the early 1940’s my Uncle Max was brought down by a canary. She sang at a Dallas place called The Blue Moon Saloon, and she claimed that the baby was his. He was in the Merchant Marines, and I don’t recall seeing him after the war.

    I asked, and my mother always just shrugged and said, “Well, you know how it is.”
