Saving Gilbert – A Seagull Rescue

Some mornings just don’t go the way you’re expecting. For once this isn’t a victim of the Trio; even they draw the line at massive hulking seagulls who could pluck their eyes from their skulls. Meet Gilbert. On my way to work this morning, a very unpleasant individual drove into a flock of seagulls and …
