Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Piasa... yeah, The Rickeybird and I are historians of the early days of the pet-bird-boom... the days of no harnesses, seed diets, home-made cages, and no avian vets within 1,000 miles!

Birdigirl... thanks! It's a journey. When I got the Rickeybird, Ronald Reagan was President; "Footloose" was a hit movie/song; I had BIG HAIR!!!!

Gahhhhhh...

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Woopsie... I've had two messages that people missed some of my previous posts here after seeing my or others' remarks about them. When I first started this thread, I was only doing one post every day or so, and then yesterday I posted a bunch. So... you may want to scroll back a bit.

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

I love this thread and the scrapbook. It's a very creative and fun way to express all journeys, adventures and moments with your Rickeybird and highlights. Priceless. What better way than to make a scrapbook. The timelines in the 90s are memorable, good times, and seeing changes. The chile part is funny. And I was thinking of having salsa. I very much miss Bird Talk too. I loved just going to the mail knowing that it arrived, opening pages and seeing the posters.

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

I love the page with the other birds he has met! That is such a neat idea. None of them are as pretty as Rickey though of course.

I agree with whoever said your house is lovely! Rickey has a very nice view.

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Terry, thanks for the compliments! I'm blushing.

SMB... the funny thing is... I look at the photos and magazine cut-outs, and think to myself... "it seems like yesterday!"

Minerva, you are clearly a woman who knows a good-looking senior psittacine when you see one. He's the only one who would disagree... no interest in his own reflection at all. We're actually in a different house now, and yes, of course it's all in the scrapbook!!!

GraciesMom, thank YOU for looking!!!

To everybody... can you even IMAGINE how happy I am to share after all this time? I'm telling everybody who will listen that the Rickeybird's Scrapbook is going online and being appreciated. I tell them - "See? I TOLD you it was interesting all along." I told 'em so!

Thanks to those who message me with thoughts, too.

And thanks to all, just for looking.

Onwards!

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Gail, I just finished reading all of your Rickeybird Scrapbook so I am now up to date and anxiously awaiting the next installment. This thread is a happy feel good, I don't want it to end kinda thread, just like the "back in the day" western tv shows that left you with a cliff hanger (girl tied to train track with train coming).

You have the makings of a wonderful book and perhaps a full length motion picture. Get on it, Girl!

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Tsali, the kindest souls in the bird-world must be here. Y'all are making my heart so warm and fuzzy that it may turn into a chipmunk or something!

I'm so glad I did the scrapbook. Every page makes it all come alive again for me.

Okay, next installment on the way... I'm downloading the photos as we speak. Chat. Write? lol

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Annnnnnd...

More from the scrapbook.

#1, #2. Some of my musings (very tongue-in-cheek) about the bird, his "accomplishments", shortcomings of the scrapbook, and a little picture of the two of us. These two pages were last added to in 2000. He's learned a lot more stuff since then... like J-Lo's song. MAN! I gave him the best years of my life, and he's gonna sing about another woman's booty!?
#3. Some general clippings about Patagonians from the now-defunct magazines that a few of us have been lamenting.
#4. A sample of the Rickeybird's moult in 2000. I love his colors. Red-orange, yellow, green, bronze, turquoise, slate gray...

And that's it for now.
