---- — A hairy situation

Pinkerton Academy’s “Astro Birds” showed their Red Sox spirit last week.

The collection of plastic pink flamingos have taken up space in an Academy Building third-floor display case for a while, but were all decked out with their Red Sox scarves and attire to show their World Series spirit.

The birds also grew their own version of the Sox beards to cheer their team on Sunday.

Jonathan Livingston, we presume

Londonderry police really respond to a wide range of animal complaints, but this one may have been new even to them.

On Sunday afternoon, police were called to Winding Pond Road for an injured seagull in the middle of the road.

The police log wasn’t very specific, but it doesn’t sound good for the bird that was miles from the coast.

“Seagull was moved to the side of the road,” the log reported.

Calling Elton John

Maybe the owner of a red Mini Cooper spotted on Interstate 495 in Massachusetts this week is a big fan of the 1971 hit “Tiny Dancer.”

More likely, the individual is a fan of ballet, tap or jazz, but the song title suits the car’s size well.

It sported the N.H. vanity plate “DANCER.”

Apple Dumpling Gang?

Londonderry police officers were called to the U-Pick lot on Pillsbury Road Sunday afternoon.

“The manager of U-Pick #3 is reporting a blue Nissan SUV has boxes filled with apples and her purse has apples,” the log states.

No arrest was listed, merely a notation the complaint had been investigated.

Having boxes of apples in a vehicle in New hampshire in the fall doesn’t sound very suspicious, but apples in the purse might have been a clue the fruit had been purloined.
