    Honestly God's truth, this happened to me two years ago while I was out shopping in High Wycombe which is the next town to me. I was standing minding my own business looking in a shop window, it was coming up to Christmas and I was admiring the display when all of a sudden I felt something hit me on the head, slide down my arm and end up on the pavement, when I looked it was a pheasant! I had never seen one this close before. it was lying on it's back and his legs were going like paddles trying to get up. Astonished? I was gobb smacked. It had to be me! where it came from I have'nt got a clue, but the people crowded around and just stared. eventually a man came over and did the chivalrous thing, picked it up and put it in a box,saying he would take it out to the countryside, yeah right, dinner plate more likely. My point is, what is the most bizarre thing that has happened to you? cheers Nell

    I'm not the pheasant plucker, I'm the pheasant plucker's son
    I'm only plucking pheasants 'till the pheasant plucker comes.

    repeat that 10 times without swearing! big_smile

    Lovely story though. Pigeons hit a large picture window in my house with alarming regularity. Don't know whether to put some masking tape on it to warn them, or prepare some pastry in case one breaks its neck. smile

    I would say the weirdest thing that ever happened to me was almost getting run over by a whitetail deer.  I was in my grandparents' back yard and it came running out of the woods and stopped just inches from me.  She then turned and ran back to the woods.  It was really freaky.

    Lol Nell I really don't think I can top that one. But here goes. Was a funny and weird thing that happened to me and my husband. We were out fishing which we do quite often and we decided to fish with leeches as our bait. Having never fished with leeches before my hubby got one out of the container with a stick. He put the leech on a rock and prepared to get it on the hook. I was looking over his shoulder and he poked the leech with the hook, the leech jumped, he jumped then I jumped. It was like a chain reaction. This happened over 20 years ago and we still laugh about it.
