Away for the Weekend

My person and I went away last weekend. My person went to Boston and I went to Trouble's house. I don't know what Boston's like but I'm wondering if it's one of those places where you sit in your cage all day in a place that's not your own house and just look out the window and wonder when your person is going to come back and get you. Because that's what it's like at Trouble's house. At least I get grapes when I'm there, so that's something. I wonder if there are grapes in Boston. Hmmm. Maybe next time, I'll go to Boston and my person will go to Trouble's house. That seems fair, doesn't it?

Snow Falling Off Roofs

We haven't had much snow so far this winter, but the snow that has been here has been very impolite. First, there was that snow that showed up in October uninvited. Then this week's snow spent all day yesterday sliding off the roof. And it's not enough for it just to slide, but it has to land on the ground with a loud "Whump!" It's so unnerving for a little green parrot like me, who always has to keep an eye out for potential predators. I had to spend much of the afternoon hiding in my person's shirt. Sometimes it's so hard being a prey animal!

The Parrot Contemplates Winter

Wintry snow, sleet, and ice
Are not very nice

But I'm safe and warm
And protected from harm

Whatever the weather's
'Cause I'm covered with feathers.
