Moderators' Choice Sunshine Award!!

I was just informed that the Moderators have posted a thread entitled this...
"Moderators' Choice Sunshine Award!!"... in which they gave me a happy nod!

I can't post in the Moderators' territory, but...
I modestly and humbly and gratefully reply here.

Thank you, Mods and all, for all the joy I've encountered here. This place has energized and enhanced my relationship with my bird... ANNNND... his rival (my ol' man). Instead of bickering about the bird, the Mr. and I come here and joke about it.

I had a good, quick cry about this honor, and then got right back to posting.

There is magic in community. And this place is living witness.

Re: Moderators' Choice Sunshine Award!!

Agreed. You have a gift for saying things in a nice way, a talent not often employed by people that passionately love parrots and want to save them from ignorance at ANY cost, including good manners, tolerance, and empathy. Thank you for your kindness and being NICE.

Re: Moderators' Choice Sunshine Award!!

Very much deserved, it's always enjoyable to read what you have to say, and I love the stories of the RB's antics. Congrats, and more importantly, thank you just for being you.
