Another Hatch Day

It's my hatch day today!

I look pretty good for an 18-year-old, don't you think?

Another Predator

Look at this thing I have to live with:

My person calls it "carpet sweeper." She can call it anything she likes but that doesn't disguise its true identity -- monster. Fortunately, it spends most of its time lurking in its den (the closet), but every once in a while it makes an appearance, then I have to take off and get out of there as fast as I can. This morning it had me squawking and flapping all over the house. But when I finally made it back to the safety of my cage, it followed me right into the room! And, my person was following along right behind it. On top of that, she was touching it. She had her hand right on the monster's handle. What is the matter with her?

There's nothing like a warm bowl of oatmeal on a cold winter morning.


Now where can I wipe this cereal off my beak?

My Workspace

Some of my fans have expressed interest in seeing what my workspace looks like. Here's a photo of me at the computer:

Somehow that darned cow keeps showing up on top of the delete key, and then I have to push it out of the way. You'd think someone didn't want me stepping on that key, or something. I can't imagine why. Anyhow, as you know, I spend a lot of time at the computer, helping my person and my step-person. By the end of the day, I get very tired and have to take a little snooze:

Sigh. It's a bird's life.

Work, Work, Work

You may be wondering how I've been spending my days lately since I haven't been blogging. Well, let me tell you, my step-person has been keeping me very busy helping him with his work.

I have to spend the entire day sitting on his shoulder while he does things on the computer. You can see in the photo what a tough job it is. But I'm glad to do it. I'm happy to do my part to keep things going around here, especially if it involves getting a treat when I'm done. I don't know what my step-person would do without me to help him. But I can only do it on the days he works at home. I can't imagine how he gets anything done when he goes to the office and has to work without my help.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I hope you have a very thankful day. This year, as always, I am thankful that I am a parrot and not a turkey. I am also thankful that I am not a dumb robin or some other outside bird hungrily poking around in the cold snow in case I might happen to find a piece of rotten fruit or a stray seed or some other tiny tidbit to eat but instead live inside in a nice warm cage with a full food dish even though my people don't let me out of the cage all the time but sometimes make me stay in there even when I want to get out and sit on their shoulders and bite their ears even though they are busy doing something else and then when I start squawking in protest, they shut the door to my room. But it's still a lot nicer than having to live outside in the cold snow and not have any people to love and feed you.
