(ð> Aw Shucks, Bella ... 'Tweren't nothin' ...
Our featheriend The RaneBeau just made me realize how much I'd been neglectin' ya and the Roses are just my way o' tryin' to redeem myself, and maybe make up for a little lost time. I'm glad ya like 'em. I just don't seem to havin' any luck findin' any that are Red and Green and Blue so I figured Blue-And-Gold, like ME, 'd be the next best thing.

Say, it sounds like you and me have about the same apprehensions with that bein' picked up thing. Though I came from a really good home where I'd been loved for most of my life (I only spent the first year and a half in any other home, 'til The Mom and The Dad o' the K Kritter Korral adopted me, The Mom doesn't think I was handled very much from the way I act. I get really cage territorial too. So The Mom solved that by using one o' those small, rolling playstands to get me away from my cage to the bigger, manzanita playstand where I spend the day. Sometimes I still try to nip The Mom when she wants me to step up from there. As a matter of fact, a while back, I got so big for my feathers that I chomped on her thumb nail, right at the base of it, and cracked it right through!!! (She tells everybirdy she could hear it crack when my beak clamped down!) But, just like your Mom, she don't know the meanin' o' backin' down to a birdy. Fister Ruby may ACT as flock leader for us K Kritter Korrallers, but we all know who the real flock leader IS!)

Anyways, that's a real good thing that ya did there when ya put your foot out for your mom. I'll bet it made her feel real good to know that you were wantin' to come to here all on your own! I bet my mom'll do a little jig the first time I put my foot up for her to pick me up without her askin'. For now, she's pleased as punch if I just respond to her request without lungin'. (Once she has me in her arms, I'm all mush for sure. But it's gettin' me there that's the pain in the tail feathers right now. But like your mom, mine ain't about to give up. The Dad says she's got "the big bird gene". HA! Funny, ain't it? The Dad'll take the smaller birds any day. But The Mom? She goes for us big'uns.)

Well, I didn't mean to keep ya on the phone here forever. I'll let ya go so ya can do whatever it is that girl birds do to get ready for an evenin' out. To me, My Belle O' Th' Ball, you're already beautiful enough to make everybirdy swoon when ya walk into the room. But you go do whatever it is will make ya feel your best and I'll be there, waitin' to see ya at the party tonight!

Later, Sweet Lady ....
