The stray who came to stay in this tale is not the usual kind; it wasn’t a four-legged waif who sized up my Seminole Springs neighbor Jim Adley as a soft touch and decided to tag after him.
Nope, this stray is neither feline nor canine but a plump white pigeon, its precise pedigree open to conjecture. Since the pigeon happened to single out a devotee of classic rock ’n’ roll, it’s not surprising he came to be known as Free Bird, the title of a Lynyrd Skynyrd hit.
