The Gods are mad at all of us... that last video is lost in the sands of time. Oh, well...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Meeeeeeeeeeeeeanwhile... skipping right up to present-day Rickeybird foolishness...

He went in to see his fabulous avian veterinarian today, for a blood check and Enalapril refill. All was well! But before we departed...
He always enjoys playing and screaming in his crate. I often encourage him to play in it, so that he is comfortable in his travels. Today, he was having a blast, until I spilled the beans about our agenda, and...
SILENCE. Oh, I know he didn't really understand my words, but...
I still had a good chuckle.

I call this video... "Wanna Go to the Vet?"

What? You have discovered the secret to silence?!?! You deserve a Birdbel Prize for that feat.

They know. They always know when it's time for the vet, they ALWAYS recognize that word!!

Btw, what's Enalapril for?

The Rb won the September POTM.
Thank you, one and all... I really needed a lift.

I posted this in my thank-you in that thread.

*********************************************

Dear Friends,
If you have absolutely nothing better to do, here are some grateful displays of how much chiles mean to the ol' Rb. He loves them as much as I love you!

Holy crap that BIRD loves his chilli's doesn't he?? Like 'Boats said Ms Gail,congrats to you and Rickey!
Oh BTW..I took a page from the RB Scrapbook and have been giving Amy chilli's. You know what he does??? Takes one bite,looks at me with fire in his eyes,then throws the damn thing on his basement floor or in his front yard. Must be an "acquired" taste :unsure:

None. My wife has one too many. Kidding!

Well, I just put this in the October POTM, but I'm so proud of myself that I think I'll put it here, too. Oh boy, the Missus is gonna be so happy to see her little creep in all these cute pictures. She'll be bringing me cold ones and rubbing my feet and letting me watch football ALL DAY LONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!








**************************************

OCTOBER POTM JUST FOR FUN ENTRIES

Well, ya work with what ya got, right? There are no genius tricksters at our house, no cutie-patooties, no darlings, none of that. We have............................................................ the Rickeybird. The new photo thing will be great for future uploads, but I already have these on Imgur, so here we go.
The many faces of the Rickeybird.

I bet y'all are right!

Enalapril? It's for high blood pressure and related problems. After all, he turned 37 this year!!!

Oh, and... he not only HAS high blood pressure, he causes it, ya know.
Oh poor old boy, didn't know that he has blood pressure problems! ...but I can sure imagine him causing high blood pressure. Don't they all? (Perhaps that is why I love birds, to fight my low blood pressure. Goes nicely with coffee xD)

Also congrats once more for winning the photo contest! I bet Rickeybird is VERY proud of himself :D

It's not that Gail is a bad videografferater, there is just too much awesomeness that is the Rb for a camera to capture:)

All defenderators for you here, Aunty G, and no defenestrators. Unless you need something done about that turbulent, interminable hater, Rival. Happy to defenestrate him for ya any time you like :D ;)
