Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Happy New Yyyyyy... uh...

Okay, the ol' Rickeybird Srapbook fell off the grid there, didn't it?
Forgive me? Forgive me!
There befell upon me and the Scrapbook a great spate of interwoven events involving medical and logistical challenges. To recount these events in such a way as to do them justice would toss a mighty scourge of detail and distraction where too much time has already been lost to them.
Suffice to say that the Scrapbook's better angels
(who?)
abided and prevailed.
The Scrapbook is back... or... is still here...
Thanks for the communications and messages and loves.
Looks like 2020 prepared us pretty well for 2021.

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

My loves, my loves, my loves! How do I ever do without you? I don't! You are always held and cherished right here.

Does the Rickeybird share my sentiments? Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure!
At one point, I was away from him for many days (the most ever in our 30+ years together). I was of course beyond desolation in my certainty that he was grieving himself into a shivering little feathery skeleton. My ol' man assured me that the bird was eating, playing, preening, screaming and carrying on amazingly as usual. Oh, I didn't believe it, no way! Well, when I returned home, my first stop was of course the cage. Without hesitation or variation, the Rickeybird perked right up, showing off his usual healthy featheration, bright eyes and rosy pink feet, and hopped to his regular perch whereupon he always awaits his first green chile of the day, and barked "HELLO!", signalling his usual impatience with the room service. It was as if he were saying "Oh, yeah, hi, where's my pepper?" Since then? Business as usual.
Life is good.




That's my boy.
