Hello Pretty Girl
If it's any comfort, I got told just a few minutes ago that my tail looked 'ratty'. Now what exactly does that mean, I wonder. That it looks like a rat's tail? Oh lordy, I hope not. Those scaly things are the most unattractive part of a rat! I'm hopin' all that insult meant was that I've sufficiently beat the poor thing up this week. See, like you, I do a few things in reverse which is sort of hard on feather barbs that would prefer we do everything in forward motion. I back out of boxes, the hidey-hole in the closet, from underneath the easy chair in the living room. All this backwards stuff really roughs up the smoothness of the ol' tail. Mom was trying to "iron" the thing smooth again but there was no re-sealing some of the grooves. I guess it won't matter if I end up on the bottom of the pile at the 3 yard line - my tail looks like I've already been there. You, on the other wing, shouldn't get end up with a feather out of place unless of course Scoobers grabs ya in a great big celebration hug 'cause he's so excited about some triumphant moment in the game. I'll look for the tail extensions but I won't tell nobirdie about'm.

How darling of you to get right up there next to Mom's ear and welcome her home after that long day at the doc's. That had t'be about the best part of her day! I hope the "C" stuff is a thing of the past, never more t'make an appearance at your house. How scary to go through that not just once but twice. Let's keep our toes crossed your sweet Mom stays safe for the rest of her life.

Kiddo and I have an appointment late this afternoon t'get t'gether and divvy up the players. We'll post the teams somewhere I'm sure. Whoever ends up on THE PILGRIM'S PRIDE team will be gettin' a birdsonal note from yours truly. I've got my work cut out for me, yea?

Good luck stayin' warm, Chyna~Girl.
