So we got this figured out. Zip is the blue one, Charlie's the English budgie, and Wilb's the other one. That leaves us nothing to scream at Mom about, so we're gonna tell you about Dominco Scarlatti!

TEN FAST FACTS ABOUT....DOMINICO SCARLATTI

MARK YOUR CALENDARS:
SURPRISE birthday party for my MOM! SHHHHH! It'll be the day after her thirteenth birthday, March 7th at 8:30 PM Central, 9:30 Eastern, 7:30 Mountain, and 6:30 Pacific time! Be there or you'll be sorry! It'll be held at our page, 213890. We'll be playing all Mom's fav music, but most of it doesn't have lyrics (And was written about the guys we're going to talk about soon :P), so we'll be giving links to listen to it on YouTube. Thank you!
PS Charlie sends his love!
