Last month a sick swan was found around the Fitz Henry Lane House where local Wildlife Rehabilitator Jodi Swenson came to the rescue. Jodi brought "Fitz" to the New England Wildlife Center in South Weymouth, Ma where it was determined that "Fitz" was suffering from lead poisoning. After responding well to medication "Fitz" the Swan made an incredible comeback. Saturday Jodi made the trip to South Weymouth to pick up "Fitz" for his trip back home. I was expecting "Fitz" to show up in a cage but Jodi didn't have one be enough for a swan so "Fitz" rode in style in the back of Jodi's car! She said you ought have seen the looks from others on the highway, "You would have thought a rock star was riding in back"! I'm sure in the eyes of "Fitz" the Swan, Jodi is the rock star!

It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
