I saw her at a local pet food store and fell in love. She had so much personality and seemed to be asking to go home with me. I told my husband about her and talked him into going to see her. She was expensive and I did not think that buying her would be possibly. My husband agreed to go see her on Feb 14 and bought her as my Valentine present. He was saving for a new tractor so I guess we should have named her John Deere..

I havent heard from you in a while, so I hope everything is ok. Well, it's been a very sad week over here- mum had to go away for a few days because a friend of hers passed away. I wasn't very happy cos we have never been apart and I never want to be again either..no-one loves me like my mum! She said that every morning she was especially thinking of me cos big, huge flocks of wild Rosies would come and settle in the gum trees and remind her of how much she was missing me! Aaaw!! Now that she is back, I have surgically attched myself to her hand and I wont get off. Nope, no way...I gotta make sure she doesn't do the bolt again EVER. Gotta keep flying cos I have to play catch up, sorry for the generic note but mum is running about a week behind.....Love Jack av4u2. PS- I have just heard that my beautiful little Amazon friend Cuca (no. 122900) has suddenly flown to the Rainbow bridge. Maybe you could stop by her page and help to say goodbye- her parronts are devastated and very very sad. Her passing has left a very big hole n their hearts.

Well darling, I dont blame you one little bit for not co-operating with getting your nails clipped. I mean. us birdies dont make our humans suffer that particular indignity do we? Nope- we just let them be and do whatever they want...so the same should be for us. Let us get into whatever mischief we want to....heeheeehehe. Oooo- it sounds really good to me. Are you going to come to Kiddo and SweetPeppers wedding tomorrow? I hope so, it will be lots of fun- and it's also about time that there is a strong contingent of us Rosies present! I think it starts at 5.00 or 6.00 your time...but dont quote me on it! Squawk to you later gorgeous....Love Jack av4u2

Aaaaw- I'm sorry those stupid papers gave you a fright...if you rip them into confetti, then they dont make any noise and aren't scary at all. If you then flap your wings, they look excellent futtering all around the room too! Well, I havent fallen off my play unit again, I've been really careful. A few other things have taken a tumble off it though- you should have seen Mum's Egyptian snow cone go flying...it was really impressive. All the little coloured things inside went around and around and then so did the water when it hit the floor! I thought it was a fabulous floor show, but mum looked distinctly unhappy and was mumbling things that I am NOT allowed to repeat.heeheehee. Hope you are enjoying what is left of your weekend.....Love Jack av4u2

Wotcha doing cuteness? I havent heard from you in while, so I hope everythings good in your bit of the universe! I had a big fall off my cane play unit yesterday- the silly fleabag cat tried to eat the dog food, so the stupid mutt tried to chomp her and then she tried to eat him back. Then they both raced up the hallway and had a big spat in mums room and I got scared and fell a long way down onto one of mums dragon ornaments. Mum was in a panic cos she saw blood and knew I had hurt myself, but I keept hissing at her and wouldn't let her touch me for ages. When I finally decided I needed some smooches, she saw I had scratched under my wing and that it wasn't too bad. Well, now she has tossed those silly dragons and re-arranged the room so that if it happens again, I will fall onto cushions and carpet. She feels bad now cos she picked them ornaments back up after the LAST time I tried to kill them- guess she should have listened to me right? I wasn't being naughty, just safety consious!! heeheehee. I got a feeling I'm going to be really spoilt today...WOOOOHOOOO!!...Love Jack av4u2

Well, I'm glad that you're a girl cos otherwise I would feel a bit embarrassed about calling you beautiful- it's not really something blokes say about each other. Maybe there are differences between us Aussie Rosies and you USA Rosies. I do know that you guys are a bit smaller compared to us, so maybe there are differences with the eyes as well. Yep- I agree that you can never trust those silly fleabag kitties. Even though I annoy the one here, mum NEVER leaves us alone together cos they are sooo unpredictable. Yesterday, it wasn't ME that was bad...it was MUM!! Yep, she went out and left me all alone and then when she got home, she turned around and went out AGAIN!! Man- did I BUST her good when she finally got back! I dont why she bothered tiptoing about cos I heard her and yelled "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?"...heeheeheee.I think I might have scared her cos she walking a bit wobbly...wonder what was up with that? Squawk to you later my friend, the secretary is playing catch up!!....Love Jack av4u2

  Hi Ruby Jewel!
It was good to hear from you. Did you have fun at your grandmother's? My Gramma and Grampa take care of me when Mom and Dad have to go out of town. They're really nice . . . but they're not Mom! I hope your horse is okay. By the way, Mom used to have a dog named Ruby when she was a kid- it was really her first dog. So the name Ruby is very special to her. Have a fun day! Here's a V4U.<3 <3

  Hi Ruby Jewel
Sly here. We're sorry to hear about Dakota. It is hard losing one you've had forever. They're part of the family!! Give your mom snuggles.
I seem to be the oldest one here. And that isn't saying much. hehehe Then comes Dandy, Punkin, Kiwi, Mina then the rest of the finches. But that's okay, young is good. Keeps mom jumping. We sure like to do that let me tell you. On Sat. mom laid down for a rest and she heard this ruckas and came shooting out of her room to see dad and me going after each other. Trouble is that she locked me up for a long time and told me that I am NOT to give dad a hard time. RATS!!!! And what's worse is dad was holding Kiwi and he laughed at me the rest of the day. Ah well, it was worth it. Gotta fly. v4u

It was sooo nice to hear a squawk from you! Well, Mum threw me in the slammer today....so I am having to squawk my messages from behind the cold black prison cell bars. How the heck was I supposed to know that the eggs on the benchtop weren't cooked? How could I help that three eggs rolled all at once and fell delightfully to the floor? I mean, I was just leaning over the edge and looking at them.....I didn't PUSH them off or anything. It's just not fair and to add injury to insult- I DIDN'T GET ANY SCARMBLED EGGS FOR BREAKFAST!!.....neither did anybody else. How was I to know they were the last ones that were left? Aaaaaw!! heeheeheee. Hope you're having a great Sunday mate- mine is over and the new week has begun.....Love Jack av4u2. PS- Mum was just wondering if you really are a girl? She thinks you are obviously beautiful, but look like a boy!! She has a pic of some wild Rosies that visit - both males and females. If your mum would like to look, then just send her an email at wardog@live.com.au . That's cool you have family here in Oz- maybe one day you will come and visit us!!

  Hi Ruby
Wow I had a good day. I spent the day running around on Mom, the floor, the playpen, the tree, the couch, the forage basket, Mom .... whew I am tired. Mom made me some new toys today and cleaned up the cage and playpen. I have been mumbling lots of things but Mom doesn't understand it all yet hehehe. I got a little scared tonight with some really loud thunder and lightening ... I just about jumped off the perch ... whew ... Mom asked if I was OK and I laughed. Hope you had a great day. v4u.

Love Sasha

  Hi Ruby
Hehehehe ... Mom calls me her pink pigeon all the time. My mom agrees with your mom about us being rare and special. Have you met Jack yet??? He has been offline awhile with internet problems, but he should be back soon, ... he's sooo cute. I think he has a girlfriend, Taffy, but I enjoy talking with him ... he can be sooo funny.

I have met many ther birdies through BC and it's fun getting to know other species and the similarities and differences.

If you haven't heard ... you can go to "The Hatchday Calendar" and see who is celebrating. You can also request your own hatchday added to the calendar so others can see your hatchday. I also added my hatchday in the name.

Gotta fly Ruby, Hope you have a great day. Nice to meet you ... come visit anytime. v4u.

Love Sasha

  Hi Ruby
Sly here.What happened to Dakota? How old was he/she? That is so sad. Sure glad you are there her. Yeah, ring necks are like that no matter what color they are. hahaha. Mina is a bossy thing. I still won't hurt her. I like little birds and hate to hurt them. You should have seen me today! I was chasing dad all afternoon. Yeah, he had to spray me and everything, but it was worth it! I just HAD to do it. Mom hopes I calm down with that soon. But I like to do it. It's fun. Ah well, gotta fly. talk later. v4u
