If you don't already do stuff with your birds' feathers, I recommend it!
It was fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Remember, a misplaced grill over a fan will greatly add to the collection!

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

David... a fan? You have just added your name to my ol' man's favorite OUTSIDE AGITATORS list! No good will come of it, I am sure.

Mr. Boats... FAN-aside? FANNASIDE???? Really? Your name is on the list, too. I can't play favorites here. I have Homeland Security to consider. Cageland Security. You know what I mean.

Major Tom... you're right. Funny is funny. BUT YOU'RE ON THE LIST, too, now! You roosters insist on sticking together. Honestly, it's cute, though.

LeaKP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SILENCE OF THE PATAGONIANS?? You have just sent Kirby (aka "my ol' man", aka "The Rival", aka "Oh, Shut Up!") into one of his belly-laugh-a-thons. He barely managed to spout forth "How about INVASION OF THE FEATHER SNATCHERS???"

Take care my good friend...
The problem with a huge Thread and a long history of Posting increases the likelihood of finding oneself on the nay-sayers list! Your kind heart may have served you well, but time and a wit will combine to find a crossed line at some point!

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Jim, you know I love you, but I'm keeping an EYE on YOU. You're still a rooster, after all!

Mr. Boats knows!!!! I love him too but he is also... yes, a rooster.

I have a weak spot for you all, it appears, including the Rickeybird, who at least goes into a cage for a green chile.

Hugs and kisses from the henhouse... xoxoxo

P.S. More episodes from The Silence of the Patagonians, Invasion of the Feather Snatchers, and The Patagonian Feather Massacre are in the works. I have a wall to fill.

In other recent events, locals have taken to buttfeathering on a higher level in protest as the population in parrotforums and the RB thread in particular awaits new releases of art and theater.
