From Powells Point, N.C. ....

He sits near the cars and watches the guys work, gets grease on his feathers and gets in the way at times. He sleeps with his head tucked under his wing in the shade of the shop. Occasionally he poops in the walking area, and they have to watch their step before cleaning it up. "It's like having a dog," Kenan said. "We haven't figured out how to house-break him."

He's had a few close calls since moving in. Once he parked under a Mustang, observing the work while it was up on the rack. He did not move when it was time to bring it down, until at the last minute he bolted just as it was about the touch the floor. He nearly got squashed, Gallo said.

Earl takes his salary in chickenfeed and gets bonuses of left-over French fries and caramel popcorn!

Thanks, Catbyte. Takes me back to the country......
