"Pigeon Shoot" says a sign on a tree; a flock of pigeons is indeed up in the sky. Watching them are two men, one a fop with big bows on his shoes, the other more simply dressed. They have a basket for containing pigeons. The fop says, " There goes 80 francs, and I haven't caught a single one! It's an expensive dish and hardly nourishing." (Virginia K. Anderson 12/10/93)
