Oh please, none of that apology stuff. It's just not necessary. Write when you get the chance. I love it when you do. I've got to tell you, Dorian, you always make me laugh. In fact, the laughter often bubbles over into raucous guffawing! You're such a funny guy!

So another wedding is the making at your house. Congratulations! But your Dad's poor wallet, it's taken a real beating in recent times. I wonder if when he walks his pretty daughter to the front of the church and the question is asked, "Who gives this bride to be married?" is he tempted to say "I didn't give her away, I had to PAY to part with her." I'm sure it will be another lovely ceremony with much rejoicing and celebrating with the young couple. Do you have a gift idea for A.? You could wrap Riley up... he hee heee. Your mom might appreciate that seeing as she stands to be the "Orange Plague's" next target. What, does Riley not appreciate girls?

All is well here with me. I spent most of the winter months fully flighted but then after sneaking to the kitchen counter when mom had her back turned and pulling off a bit of the wallpaper, it was snip-snip for the flight feathers. That turned out to be a life saver because just a couple of days ago mom came into the aviary to retrieve me and discovered I was not IN the aviary. When she called me, my answer could be heard on the outside of the parrot pen! Thinking it came from the clump birch that now drapes over a portion of the enclosure, mom scanned the branches for a gray bird but when my next whistle came from right above her head, it was discovered I was standing on TOP of the aviary! Turns out a rope curtain that had recently be hung up inside (to keep the flighted Amazon from accidentally exiting) made the perfect ladder for me to reach the ceiling of the aviary. That didn't seem to be a problem as the spaces between the boards are all quite narrow... except for one, the one that happened to be near the portion of rope I shimmied up, and as I'm a rather petite CAG, it was no problem for me to squeeze through the space. Mom climbed up on top of the aviary and found little triangular marks (beak point indentions) and scratch marks (nails) which confirmed for her the likelihood of that being how I managed to be found on the roof. Needless to say, the rope curtain is down and now there's no way for me to reach the roof top again. Had I been a flighted bird at the time of my escape, there's no saying how this story might've ended. As it was, it was a close call. The very next day a huge hawk spent some 15 minutes circling our yard, down so low that mom could see his beady eyes studying the empty aviary. Shame on that hawk, looking for me to be his afternoon snack! All's well that ends well, which is a rather nice thing.

I'm happy and healthy and intend to stay that way. You do the same, okay?

Your pal,
