Never fear, Aunty G!! We'll hold on tight and won't ever let you go - in fact I think we'll all need to do it for a while to cope with all the change! o_O

I admire you ;) I'd be too lazy for something like this ;)
It is a huge undertaking, but well worth it to preserve the integrity of The Scrapbook ❤️

None. My wife has one too many. Kidding!
Well, it's time for a calmer head to take over.
I'm going to start a.........................................

Okay. Here we go!

And nexxxxt, in the Rickeybird's Scrapbook...

Not all of you will remember these two magazines... "Bird Talk" and "American Cage Bird", but back in the day, they were staples of bird-lovers' reading material. I think the internet dragged them under. ANYWAY, I loved replying to their surveys and such.

Here are contributions from 1985, 1990, 1992, and 1997. If you have trouble reading parts, worry not. I was just pretty much droning on about his loudness, his antics, his rivalry with my husband, how he reacted when I got a job after completing school, etc. The picture of him was taken in early 1985.

Here's something funny: I spell the Rickeybird's name with an "e"... not sure how it got started, but that's how I do it. The well-meaning editors changed it to "Ricky", figuring I didn't know how to spell my own parrot's name!?

A great retrospective! The fact that I know a real live celebrity is my claim to fame since I first saw this:)
I have a huge stack of old Bird Talks somewhere, I wonder if by chance I have the one that started the Rb's fame? If I do, I need an autograph....or maybe not, I bet his autograph includes ripping and destruction.
