Now we’ve done it. We live near the Asheville airport. They’ve reported strange sightings on their radar indicating some sort of flying object around Chez Herd. We’ve denied all knowledge, but a formal air traffic control complaint has been filed. Boom Boom may need to secure his pilot’s license and register his flight plan.
