Hi Morgan,
today mum's gonna tell you the 2. part & that ain't so cute!!!! It goes like this:
On her 2. last Sunday there, she paid all the birds a long visit & made the rounds, so nobirdy was feeling left out!
When she came to the one aviary, where one big amazon & several African Greys were living, one of the workers there, had the amazon on his shoulder! Mum couldn't believe her eyes & went right up to him with her hand stretched out towards the bird ( he usually was very tame & let mum scratch him & never attempted to bite her, when he was behind bars!!!)It was a big mistake, b/c he lunged forward & got mum pretty good on her right index finger! The man warned her just a split second too late not to hold out her hand to him!
Anyway, the blood was flowing, so the man offered mum to give her a band aid.
They walked together to his office, with the bird still on his shoulder. The man went inside & came out with the band aid, holding it out to mum ( big mistake on his part, b/c mum had to reach out for it to get it & the bird was still there!) As mum reached for the band aid, the amazon flew towards her like a maniac, landing on her left upper arm (with only a short sleeve t-shirt on)& bit her there, but luckily not all that hard, otherwise she'd have a piece of flesh missing! She yelled & screamed & shook him off with all her might, till he flew to the ground! Once there, he started to laugh his head off, the cheek!!!
Mum was pretty shaken & just walked away & cried a little bit, mostly out of shock! She went back a bit later to check on him & he was his old sweet self, back behind bars!
Mum's got a big bruise on her arm up to today & showed it to her family & friends like a trophy.
As for that 'Pico' she'd have loved to take him home with her....don't think i'd been impressed!!!!
Things are looking good, she saw just the laptop she wants today in an ad & plans on buying it tomorrow, so the pics are just a stone throw away!!! Mum can't wait herself to see them on a big screen!
Fancy that hurricane is called 'Irene,' just like mum!!!!
Hope it won't be a real bad one & people will be spared the worst!
Here comes a vote for you & a big hug,
Jivu ♥
