Hi everyone. I had intended to be posting once a week from the beginning of the year, but the passing of a beloved family member has halted that effort. Our lovely budgie passed away after being sick for only a weekend. He was only three, and so it was a big shock to us. The house is so quiet that it's been hard to do anything while home alone except mope. We miss him very much.
But today I am playing Disney tunes and singing, so the place is feeling a little less empty for now. I'm going to write some posts over the next few days that will be much cherrier, but for now, let me show you my pretty little fella.
This is Budgery-Boy as a baby, would have been not long after we brought him home. Yes, his wing is trimmed, but only for his own safety - getting used to a new home can be scary, so this means he couldn't fly too high or too far. Notice how blue his feathers are, and how few spots he has on his face!
I was never sure if he thought he was a person, or if he thought we were birds. I know he wanted to eat and drink anything we were eating or drinking, so I ended up pouring two glasses of water if he were out of his house - one for me, and one for him.
And he loved his bell! He never quite got the hang of soccer, but he did love to talk to it! He also loved sitting on people's feet and talking to their toes. But I wont put in a photo of that, hehe. And he loved his mirror. So much so that he would say "where's your mirror?", and I would have to go get it for him to sit and talk to. And feed. Seed everywhere. Ick. Hahaha, he was a character.
Thank you for looking through these photos of my best little friend. I hope they made you smile.
