Quail and potatoes?

I certainly hope he was planning to have lots of people over for dinner and didn't just kill all those beautiful birds for the fun of it!

Soles

First I have ever seen thick soled dress shoes back from the 1920s. Must have been a backwoods New Zealand thing I suppose?

Sideshow

If I can't hit the Bullseye while blindfolded you can pick any prize from the top row.

A question of standpoint.

I know people who would want to quail looking at those poor little tweety-birds having been nailed to a barn wall.

Me, I am wondering what they tasted like. Haven't had the chance to try that particular type of bird yet.

And I have an inkling that those poor little tweety-birds might be an invasive pest under the long white cloud anyway.

Who, indeed?

The dogs, most likely!

Are you sure

this isn't Indiana Jones on a hunting spree?
