Mama came to Omars to visit me, and I had to go home with her. I wouldn't let her leave without me! Nobody else could pick me up and I would bite them, but I saw my future mama come in the door and that was it. I had to own her!. Awards

Hi! My name is Gandalf

I am a Timneh African Grey from La Mirada, CA.

Bashja boy, baby boy, Gandalforino

11 years old   M

Timneh African Grey

Seseame seed covered anything! And Peanut butter!!! Dried pasta, grapes...I love grapes! Grapes grapes grapes!!! Corn corn corn corn too! Food - I just really love food.

I love to be in the living room on my special perch when my mom is watching TV. Right now we are watching some gross program called The Walking Dead - Zombies. YUCK! But it's entertainment!

Everything! But especially Raven, my nosey neighbor the Nanday! Oh, and Christmas trees - they really freak me out! And don't even think about moving my cage to a different spot - I do not like change very much!

She talks to me all the time, and I talk back as well. Right now she is teaching my numbers which is really fun! I am on number two! I've also got about 65 words in my vocabulary. A sentence is good, but rambling off a paragraph? Even better!

I like to overpreen myself, but when I am not doing that, I love to talk to the cat and drive him crazy. I like telling my conure friend to pipe down as well..

If you can't say anything nice, say it anyway!.

  Hello Gandy! How Ya Doin'? Hope All Are Well &..
...having a good time at your home! You aren't gonna believe what happened to Mom by one of those terrible kitties that live here. I keep warning her about them but she just doesn't listen! What A Strange Day. And It Started With A Cat! Mom was all snuggled into her nice bed, one of those Temperpedic Beds that has a remote control to make the head part go up & down & also the feet/legs go up & down. She was peacefully sleeping & minding her own business when CooCoo Kitty CocoPuff steps on the remote…BOTH buttons at the same time & the bed starts to fold Mom up like a sandwich! Her sleeping on her side & having a bad back, well, she woke up wondering, “WHAT THE HEY?!!” She looked over to see CocoPuff, with an evil grin I imagine, standing there all innocent looking. She was lookin’ at Mom like, “Wha? I haven’t done anything!” Well, the bed moves fast & even though Mom pushed her off the remote that was setting on her nightstand, her back was hurt. Today, Mom would like to present the letter “V”. Yep. That’s her cracked back there at the pointy part! The rest of the day Mom sat with me & nursed her back with ice packs & heating pads. She’d growl at CooCooPuff when she’d stroll by with that smirk on her face. BOY, would I have LOVED to fly after her & give her fluffy tail a real good BITE!! No, I didn’t do it. Mom was already stressed out with the pain so I didn’t make her feel worse. No, I loved on her & sang her the new song she introduced to me a couple of weeks ago. Heehee! It’s about Satellites! Hope you have a nice evening. Hugs for all, SamIAm

  Hi Gandy! Good Day Greetings To You!
What a nice day today is turning out to be! I was able to have breakfast with Mom, getting to have some of her cereal & 2 teaspoons of almond milk! Wow! It was good!

Mom has already baked some banana/blueberry bread that uses whole wheat flour! It has smelled up the house with a wonderful aroma! It is making my tummy make a funny noise! I go to have some of my pellets and well….they don't smell like that bread does! Mom said there are nuts in it too, and maybe I will get to have a taste! I'm excited!

I'll squawk with you later. Hugs to all, SamIAm

  OH MY Goodness! My Long Lost Pal!!!
I've missed you so MUCH!! So much is happenin' on the BC! Where & WHAT to tell you first??? I'm still here with my Momma. She is a 'fair' typist but then there was that time she was under the computer desk fixing something & I saw her toes! Not ever seeing her toes before, I had to check them out & bit her big ole toe to see what it would do!! Well, what it does is makes a human sit up extra fast and SMACK their head into the keyboard drawer. Yep! Knocked her out cold! So, I learned NOT to do that when one is waiting on their blogs to be done! I had to get up there & type them myself! OH YEAH, another lesson I learned from that, is that humans DO LAY EGGS!! I know because after a while when Mom came out from under that desk, she had a great big purple egg growing on her head!! That was the oddest thing I've ever seen! Mom never did fix a nest for it nor did I see her actually lay it. But it did end up coming out, she just never talked about it anymore. It finally disappeared after a month if not more. I guess the gestation period is longer than a bird's because of human's large gigantic sizes. I don't even WANT to know how it shot out of her head!! Only birds are the logical animals. Passing a big egg like that out their nostrils or ears has GOT to hurt! No wonder she is always sayin' she's got a headache! Human's are so odd!

Well, buddy, we'll catch up some more later! Greyt seeing you & your good flock! Hugs to all & especially to your good Momma! SamIAm
