I’ve been preparing my list for Christmas for mom’s review, ordering and delivery next Tuesday morning. I realize it’s hard to believe, but I HAVE been a good birdie all year (well, there was that one incident in Penne’s Tree a while back when my buddy Oscar (a cockatoo) and I got into the moonshine, caused a wee bit of a chaos, fell out of the tree and into the bushes beneath, emerging the next morning with twigs and pine needles stuck to our birdie butts. Thankfully, what happens in Penne’s Tree, stays in Penne’s Tree, phew).
But I digress. I repeat, I have been a GOOD BIRDIE this year and I deserve everything on my list (and much, much more, but I won’t push it):
Almonds – the biggest bag possible of course
New foot toys – so I can listen to mom moan and groan as she picks them up when I deliberately toss them
My own smartphone – because mom is becoming tiresome, with her bad typing and rather boring posts of trees, snow and stupid turkeys… yawn..
A new sister – Abby is beautiful, but good grief she’s boring and has absolutely no sense of humour
Bells and whistles – because I’ve heard that other birdies have cages decked out with all the bells and whistles. I don’t know what they are, but I know I want them!
Uh oh, mom’s coming, I’ll be adding to the blog about my (bottomless) Christmas list and the weird build-up to Christmas in our house (i.e., decorations, food, visitors and silly songs…).
Until next time everybirdie, be careful to whom you divulge your Christmas list – Santa’s’ watching!
P.S. I’m looking for further suggestions for my Christmas list, please pass along your comment to this post!
In the October edition, Morty has been called upon to provide advice to a distraught apartment dweller whose birdie companions are becoming too noisy for the neighbors. This parront is desperate for a soundproofing solution to her problem. Morty may have just the answer – but, there are a few bugs to be worked out […]
Greetings to all my favorite parrot friends! Alexa is in a mood after she rolled under the couch. She blames me for her clumsiness! Good help is hard to find these days! Recently, I received an interesting letter from a parrot owner. Dear Morty, I live in a three bedroom home and have ten parrots. […]
by Sherri Moorer The welcome home screams invited me into the offices of Doctors Zack and Bubbles, ready to begin their official duties as listeners and comforters of human sorrows after a hard day at work. “What am I going to do?” I asked, as I plopped in my recliner. “The phones won’t stop ringing. […]
I do not usually publish ‘stay tuned’ alerts on this blog, but this time I must. I am working on a post that has me truly excited, because it features an individual whose work has been a primary source of inspiration for me for many years. While I was studying mental health counseling at Cleveland […]
The time has come. For a while I have felt like I had outgrown my blog, and I have decided to do something about it. New Theme First of all, you probably noticed that I have changed The Jaguar and Allies’ theme. For those who do not know, the way WordPress works is that authors can […]
Wasn’t quite sure what I’d find underneath the tarp placed over the Muskoka chairs last fall, but all is good – no spiders, just a little bit of ice and snow. Can’t wait to enjoy some warm spring and hot summer daydreaming from the deck.
Dozens of gold and purple finch ascended on the bird feeders over the last two weeks, probably wondering where and when spring will come to their territory. Despite having to shoot through the bay window, I managed to take a few nice photos of the finch on both the clothes line and feeders.
Despite winter’s extended strangle hold on early spring, these beauties were a most welcomed sight.
