Well, thank you for the heartfelt past-blast, dear Rival. Excuse me, though... he is in fact quiet when he is asleep.

And Lea has captured the magic moment of arrival! Just look at that dear little darling, facing the world with such innocence and neediness... so humble and so ready to love everybody.
Be still, my sentimental heart.
Thank you, Lea.

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Today is October 13!
The Rickeybird and I are excited to observe National Veterinary Technicians Week!
A special shout-out to our beloved vet tech "Nurse Connie" (as we call her)!

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Salutations, Nurse Connie. She keeps a low professional profile so isn't registered here (yet!?) but she appreciates the shout-out and wishes all the vet techs (especially the bird-centric ones) a happy VT Week.
PS, she is the only person that the Bird steps-up for besides the Missus, so that tells you a lot.

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Tomorrow is National Reptile Awareness Day!

I can thank this Community for acquainting me with reptiles. Before I met reptile-lovers here, I was firmly in the "Ewwwwwww... SCALY!" camp, but I have really learned a lot. I am definitely a reptile fan now, and I consider myself very fortunate. Thanks, folks!

https://nationaldaycalendar.com/nati...ay-october-21/

I also discovered that the Rickeybird is part eel, which, while not a reptile, looks like one to me. AND has scales!!!!!

Similar ambush tactics, at any rate! Lol!

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

My two favorite Steph/vens!

Yes, Stephen, VERY similar ambush tactics, except the eel doesn't scream "NO!" when he lunges!

Steven... if you're at a loss for words, it's only because no EELucidation is necessary!

I hear ya Major TOM - when we lived out bush my aunty used to keep a shotgun behind the door specifically to deal with errant snakes/goannas/feral pigs etc etc. Formidable lady my aunty!

Meanwhile in Thailand recently these boyz happened across this 4 metre long king cobra lurking in a drain. And that one guy tackled it with his bare hands! Good thing for the snake that my aunty wasn't there or he may have found himself being transferred to that great big wildlife sanctuary in the sky!
