I was interested in getting a bird for a little while. I did some research and bought him from a breeder a couple of hours away.. Awards

  Okay, well
Owner is frustrated today because she's trying to switch my photos around. She really likes the one of me hovering by my old cage. I do look pretty cute there, I have to say.

It's been an okay summer around here. I've had to go and stay with the vet twice when owner was gone. That was okay. It's alright to have a little break and I always kept my snuggly bed with me so I could curl up every night like I usually do.

I was grouchy part of the summer due to molting, but that's over with now and I also got my toenails and beak trimmed. The other night I was feeling particularly affectionate and curling up with owner when she was lying on the couch. Her hair was making a nice little shelter for me. Guess I was happy that night.

I'm looking forward to getting a few more fruits and veggies soon. Owner is turning over a new leaf (ha!). Once she started feeding me extruded food the fruit and veggies haven't been forthcoming. I didn't have any fatty seeds either for ages. I'm back with seeds now plus the extruded food, but she's planning on getting back into the swing of things with veggies/fruits. Part of it is because she hasn't eaten very well this summer herself! She wants to lose 10 more pounds. I have no opinion on whether she needs to do this or not.

Come visit me, Uncle Kracker.

  Hmmmm, my owner and I haven't logged in for a while. We need to come and make some more friends on here. She's been all over the place recently and has forgotten how much she loves birds. We cuddled for a while yesterday when there was a big thunderstorm. I didn't like it very much. I don't think she did either - everything was gray and gloomy and soooo dark.

Apparently my owner has to go because she has to write a paper. I guess she's debating about whether to go to bed and write it in the morning or stay up. At least she knows that no matter what she does, I'll be awake with her!

Come visit me, Uncle Kracker.

  News from Uncle K
I feel the need to make my presence known here a little more

I really wish my owner would get with the program and upload some other pictures of me to my profile. Honestly, she is so slow. If she let me sit on her computer more often like I want to, maybe it would be done by now. I could give her a few friendly nibbles to remind her to get her priorities straight. She’s working all day long and she goes to school a few nights a week, but she still pays pretty good attention to me, so I can’t complain too much. She put together my new birdcage, and I love it. It’s so big! (Just a side note though, owner of mine: my cage needs to be cleaned, you need to fix my Happy Hut, and I’m craving fruit)!!!!

There’s been some craziness around here. There have been quite a few visitors the past month or so. I usually like the new people okay, but I’m still working on my biting. You should hear her sometimes when I give a few little nips. She should learn that usually I do it when she’s talking on the telephone (when I want attention), or if she’s eating (I want to share). One night she was chattering away and I thought she’d talked quite long enough, so I reached up and gave her a little nibble on the neck. She jerked violently and screamed like a banshee. These humans are so wimpy sometimes.

She had this dude over here the other day. I knew him. One time when she went out of town I went to stay at his grandparents’. They were pretty cool. They put me in a big room with all these plants, and they LOVED me. Anyhow, my owner and this guy were sitting on the couch kissing (I was busy trying to ignore them). They seemed to be enjoying themselves, talking softly with various croons of endearment. All of a sudden they had a fight and he left. I never will understand humans. My owner and I have similar personalities in some ways, except that I am much more normal. That chick is wacko.

This was fun. I have many more topics to discuss ahead!

Come visit me, Uncle Kracker.

  Thanks! I told my mom that I didn't like the original avatar she made for me! I had to supervise the new one. I approve of it this time!

Come visit me, Gilbert & Tilly.

Hey there Uncle K! I'm Tilly. You and I look like we could be nestmates! I have that same pet peeve too. My mom thinks she's allowed to eat without me. I sure show her when I buzz her head and eventually land there and dangle in front of her face!! Come visit me sometime!

Come visit me, Gilbert & Tilly.
