Re: Kevin in Greytown 2.0

Thank you LeaKP for the backstory on Nigel - you had all the right paperwork and authorisation etc to move him (or her!) with you but he was stopped at the border?! OMG I would’ve lost my mind if it was me... as indeed you probably did!! At the very least he is still Lord Mayor (or Lady Mayoress) of Greytown 1.0 and is ably assisted by Wilson, do you get to skype him every now and then? Thanx for sharing Nigel’s story, as heartbreaking as it is ...

Re: Kevin in Greytown 2.0

Indeed all paperwork was done but the world doesnít work here as it does there. If someone feels like being difficult they can be and they were and we were heartbroken, still are.

However Nigel is safe and sassy and happy and thatís a comfort somehow.

Re: Kevin in Greytown 2.0

It’d be interesting if he did turn out to be a Nigella, my mother’s name was Nigelle - before she changed it to Sita Devi by deed poll, but that’s another story altogether. I’m glad Nigel is doing well

Re: Kevin in Greytown 2.0

Kevin-ism for the week:

RK is known for the pride he takes in HIS cage. You only may enter to clean if he is out. He will sit on top while I clean and he pleasantly whistles orders at me. He doesnít like to chew plastic so I put this bottle in his cage just to see what he would do. Well, he ATTACKED the intruder and summarily dumped it out the front door. SUCH A GREAT BIRD! I love his quirks. Sorry for poor pic quality, I sneakily took this pic as it captured his attitude against the bottle intruder.

Re: Kevin in Greytown 2.0

For sale: eco friendly wood chips. These wood chips were made using green technology without the use of any fossil fuels, unless an African grey parrot-osaur counts. Any time you need eco friendly wood chips contact Red Kevin.

Re: Kevin in Greytown 2.0

Kevin is offering a special on wood chippings if you bring your own furniture. Supplies at home are limited and dwindling.

Re: Kevin in Greytown 2.0

Hmmm, a commonly shared occurrence has found a certain Amazon's home in need of new furniture as well.

He refers to his work as force remodeling.
He was totally upset when one of the staff placed bubble rap around one of his recent test subjects.

RK: Die Evil Bottle, Die!!!

Re: Kevin in Greytown 2.0

Thank you for the update on Nigel/Nigella! He'll always be a part of this community, and it warms my heart to know that he is doing so well.

And Kevin really seems to be laying down the law in his palatial digs! No plastics up in his home! He keeps it green!

Re: Kevin in Greytown 2.0

Destructor in Chief has been at it again attacking the nefarious orange flip flop. Who knows what radioactiveness it could bring to Greytown????
