    Having a lazy 34mm of rain fall. Time to park the 'irritator' up for a while. Will finish the 2 pdks I've got locked up to be cut nicely. Now with my truck driving hat on.. Please big guy, turn it off for 12 hrs. Start again 6 in the morning.
    Then on Sunday, bring out the big yellow for a couple of weeks so I can get it cut and wrapped,the crops harvested and in the silo. Cheers

    So today on my adventures around the internet I somehow started reading about hero animals And one story stood out in particular, the story of "Siwash" the US Marine Corp duck.
    Siwash was actually taken aboard whilst the marines had stopped in NZ on their way to fight in the Pacific theater and became somewhat of a mascot. One story made me smile, Siwash and her battalion had to land on an island and encountered heavy resistance from the Japs throughout the landing, it just so happened that the Japs had their own mascot, a rooster, Siwash fought alongside her brigade and engaged in wing to wing combat with the rooster on the beach whilst the landing was taking place, all the while under heavy enemy fire. Siwash eventually defeated her feathery foe despite taking several nasty pecks and loosing a few feathers and after the war she was awarded the purple heart for bravery under fire.

    True story, i thought it was brilliant!

    Just Google it bro. "Sergeant Stubby" the dog was a fucking badass too, and a few stories of carrier pigeons etc that did some pretty amazing missions even whilst injured throughout the different wars

    It was probably the offspring of some of the WWI carrier pigeons.
