Jimmy the Butcher = Hero

This morning, Friday 5/25, at around 7:30 a.m., a robin sauntered into our basement office near the 17th & Clarkson store. It ambled along, turned a corner and walked into the office of Elizabeth and Tyler. Elizabeth was there and, mild-mannered though she is, freaked a bit at the site of a bird suddenly hanging out in her office. Attempts to relocate the robin were fruitless. Enter stage left: Jimmy the Butcher. Elizabeth summoned Jimmy to the basement, and he very kindly got the little chappy to fly out a window. (One bystander swears that Jimmy gently grabbed it, ran outside and threw it into the air shouting, “You’re free, little birdie! You’re free!” but this hasn't been verified.) The robin will probably tell his or her family that a big, weird bearded dude tried to eradicate him/her, but we'll always appreciate the heroic efforts of Jimmy the Butcher on this day.
