Your nice ball with nuts sounds fun - for you. I do not really like to DO anything. I sit and watch TV and Mum in the garden and Dog Angela and.. sing and whistle and climb about my cage. I have a swing and it terrifies me. I will not go near it! I sit on the door of my little cage - I like to sleep there - but soetimes it rocks a bit and I get scared evenof that. If I lose my balance I am in big trouble.. can't flap feathers to sort things out though the wings still flap. They just don't seem to DO anything! I have a sort of kebab thing,and some balls appeared and I ws scared to move till they vanished again. I have cuddly things too, but I did not come out of my little house for several weeks, well, not willingly, till it went away again. I hated it touching me! Soft and cuddly and warm they said - no way! I like to sit and snooze, contemplating my life and how it has changed since I was dangling upside down in that garage carport place with cold winds whistling about.
Maybe SoS can update the blog for me - she can, but she does not communicate with me often from England so she may not know what I want to say.. Last time she rang I called out "Hello Cocky"and she called back over the phone "Hello Bibbie!" It was good to hear from her. I will have to practice screeching loudly so she can get my messages on the other side of the world. And then she can update my blog..
Well, the fire has started putting out more heat now Mum has put more wood on it. She went out to friends for dinner and I was not invited. The only consolation, the only thing that makes me not feel ignored, unwanted and so on is - Dog Angela was not invited either. At least she came straight in and stoked up the fire for me.
It is cold and windy outside so the fire is a nice thing to have going.
Back to sleep for me

Oh dear I am sad too. My bird friends departing to bird heaven and us all left here missing them. Vale Alex.
Sammy might become quite a friend now once you get properly used to each other.
It is sunny again and no rain – looks like we are fronting up to another season of no rain following years and years of little or no rain – it is getting worrying. Mum is using buckets to move tank water from outside to bathe in, and then using it again into the (front loading so she uses a small jug to ladle with) washing machine and catching it outside (it now goes onto the garden instead of into the drain) and bringing it in to flush the loo. She says three uses for water is not bad. The rinse water from the washing machine goes onto the garden. But sometime not too far away the tanks will be empty and she will have to start using mains water when allowed. Not that she will be allowed to use it for too much longer. We hope for some showers Sunday night or Monday which MAY top up the tanks and then – it will be really work to save it for the garden I think. I do my bit – I don’t drink a lot!
I think – don’t tell anyone yet – I am getting fluffy ankles. If my legs get feathers all over and the rest of me doesn’t it will look like I am wearing leg warmers or pantaloons! What fun!

Oh Joonie you make me laugh with the story of how Sammy talks! Have you told him the story of the rude bird that so disgusted his human, that in the end the human put him in the freezer for a few minutes? It taught the rude bird such a lesson – he came out, very polite, apologising for his rude behaviour. THEN he asked what the poor chicken had done to deserve its fate. I don’t think you need worry Joonie – your Mum sounds as if she knows how things are. As for getting Sammy here – why not turn him loose and let him FLY here? It’s the only way he could get here to be honest, I think – there are strict laws about quarantine and things and I suspect Sammy might not pass. Shall we agree to keep that bit secret – he might get an inferiority complex if he knew? On the other hand…
I would like to meet you face to face too Joonie but would not like to give you my virus and have you loose all your feathers too. Perhaps we had better leave our locations as they are!
Yes it is spring here now in
I have sat on Mum’s had again a couple of times, and investigated up her sleeve and so on. I do enjoy a nice cuddle! And right now, I will enjoy watching Mum pegging the sheets on the line to dry. Such fun watching them flap in the sun and breeze, too!

Re <<<<I am envious, Bibbie. Your life is an adventure filled with surprises and, as
Oh Joonie here are you envying me and I envy you! A bird to talk to and nothing terrifying happening. I think I could do with some boredom! And - the closest I get to a bird to talk to is either through the window at the back of the yard, OR a frozen chicken on the way between freezer and oven, poor thing. They have no feathers either!
Yesterday I watched Mum putting tomato seedlings into the ground. She has put bottles in so she can pour water into them and it gets down into the soil instead of evaporating from the surface. She said she will give it a good watering today on the garden bed (it was supposed to rain over night but it was just a light shower) and then put mulch all over it, thickly. She said I can watch her plant little seeds in the umbrella sort of plastic greenhouse, too, That’s the sort of excitement I like, Joonie, not falling off my perch!
Say hello to Sammy for me – he will settle in soon I hope? He is not sort of decrepit, is he? Bet he has feathers..
