The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Sponsored Links
One photo is of the Rbird and yours truly, @1985... the other is 2016. Can you tell which is which? Hint: Don't bother looking at the bird... he hasn't changed! The same glasses are back in style... hmmm...

re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984-present

Thanks, y'all, Kiwi, Circus and Scott !

Well, I keep HIM young, anyway!!!! We've been through college, marriage, divorce, marriage, jobsjobsjobs, apartmentshouses...

My mission is to outlive him. I HAVE to. Patagonians' life expectancy is 30-35... but... he is totally the same as ever. I may have to make it to 90!

re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984-present

AMAZING. Hardly any difference at all. And Ricky looks good too.

Actually Ricky is huge compared to the patty I met a few months ago. In both pics. Are they like sharks, growing bigger every year?

re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984-present

Sweet photos of you and Ricky! It's nice to see such a long lasting relationship! Both of you look wonderful! The two photos appear to have been taken weeks apart rather than years. I hope you and Ricky have lots more happy years together, you're obviously good for each other!

Terry, Wrench, Allee...
Flattery will get you anywhere!

Wrench, he DOES look bigger... that's weird. His weight has remained at around 250 grams. His head is about the diameter of my chin. Maybe his head got bigger from all the nice things you guys said! He's on my shoulder, ya know!
