  Dearest Murphy~
It is so nice to hear from you and know that even though there's sadness in yours and your mom's hearts yet, you're both hanging in there and finding the joy that's still around you. The past several months really have been the worst for you what with all the goodbyes that have had to be said, and the one year anniversary of your Grandpa. One good-bye in a decade is more than enough, but so many all together is just about more than the heart could seem to bear. I'm SO glad you and your mom have each other still to love and rely on. You're doing a swell job of keeping your mom smiling, Mr. Murph. A guy as cute and sweet as you shouldn't have too hard a time doing that! I just loved hearing about how your Mom's Dad loved Mr. Birdie and how he interacted with him from time to time. Those little birdies have a way of working their way into even the most likely hearts. It's certainly true here too.

With less than a month to go until winter is officially over, on the calendar anyway, it's almost allowable to start dreaming about springtime weather, green grass and warm breezes. It sure been a chilly winter this year and continues to be still. The extra heater had to be brought into my room again tonight since it's set to reach -2° sometime in the night. Brrr! That's cold for a tropical parrot, even if I AM indoors!

Sweet dreams are wished for you tonight Murphy. And for your mom too.

With love,
K *v*

  A Hug for Murphy
((hug))

I keep thinking about you and your mom, and hoping your hearts are not feeling as overwhelming sad these days. Missing Mr. Birdie will be something that's always in your life from here on out, but that's because you love him so much! I just hope it hurts a little less to think about him with each passing day.

That's the sweetest thing that the Vet's office sent a card and that Mr. Birdie's picture was on it. You have a wonderful doc, just like you have a wonderful mom.

Yes, we've had snow this year although not as much as you likely have. What we've had is WIND and bitter cold, and way too much of those. This winter's going down in the history books as a bitter cold one, that's for sure. Good luck staying warm and toasty, my friend.

Love and hugs from your friend, Kelly *v*

  Oh Murphy ....
I am so sorry about Mr. Birdie. How you and your mom must miss the beautiful green and yellow fellow. Reading about how you reacted in the days after his passing, my heart hurt so much for you and the sadness you were feeling. That little 'keet has been your pal for so many years, a fellow birdie to chirp with, a fellow feathered friend to hang out with. I always envied that lucky parakeet, getting to hang out with you all the time!

Please share a tender hug with your Mom from me and tell her I and my mom are feeling such a sadness knowing you're both missing Mr. Birdie. Thank you for your email addy — we will always stay in touch, no matter what the future holds for the BC.

((hug)) to you, my sweet friend.

May I share a hug with you? ((hug))

I'm so sorry about the concerns over Mr. Birdie. I can well imagine you've picked up on your Mom's worry and the changes in Mr. Birdie's behavior. He's been your buddy ever since you joined the family. It's got to be hard to witness his many years creating such trying challenges for him. Please know that you and him and your wonderful mom are all in my thoughts and prayers today... and tomorrow and the day after, come what may.

There's some unfortunate news about the BirdChannel I must tell you; our birdsonal pages are soon to be erased from the BirdChannel. The new company that owns this site is changing the format so it's more friendly for mobile devices (phones, pads). The new format will not include our BC pages. I so don't want to lose touch with you, Murphy, so here's my mom's e-mail address lyndemc2@mac.com It seems we exchanged addresses once but just in case, please keep mine so we can always write to each other. Lots of BC birds are planning on being active on facebook. Mom's not crazy about that site but is sure she'll be there in order to keep in touch with our many BC friends.

Changes in life can sometimes be good things, but so many other changes aren't good at all. I don't like some of these upcoming changes... It just breaks my heart to think of your family without Mr. Birdie there. Tears are welling up even now as I think about it. Please tell your Mama thank you for letting me and my mom know about him. We all adore him so much...

Sharing a long and tender hug with you again ~

Your friend,

  Oh Murphy!
You've no idea the joy I felt when I saw your name on my page!! Talk about elation! It's so good to hear from you and know everything is good there. I take it that means that Mr. Birdie is doing okay? I think about him often, especially since we too have a Ms Keet here who's nearly 12 years old. I'm sure I've told you about her before but just in case not; she was a breeder for 10 years and then her mate died so the lady retired her from the breeding business, giving her to the bird club's rescue coordinator. Mom felt so bad for her being given away after all those years in one place. She fit right in with the big group of 'keets here but then, I suppose because of age, she stopped being able to fly so has been set up in an easily accessible cage where she seems quite happy. In the winter time when all the keets are in the bird room, her door is left open and a buddy or two comes in a sits with her. Now that it's summer, she's out in the bird barn with the rest but still in her cage. Right now she's mothering a couple of button quail that just hatched. She loves to be a mommy! It's amazing to us that she's so active at the ripe old age of 12. I wonder what her and Mr. Birdie would have to talk about were they able to perch side by side.

Murph-Bird, it's so wonderful to know you're okay. Thanks for stopping by. Sending you a greyt big hug.

  Murphy!
What a sweet surprise to find a note from you on my page this morning. It always makes my day to know you're doing okay. That Mr. Birdie is still his darling little self, even as a senior psittacine, is a great relief.

About Knuckles, yes, I knew about her death. Someone who lives not far from her and talks with her momma on occasion got a call from Catherine with the sad news. The news was then e-mailed to my mom who later got an e-mail message from Knuckles' mom as well. It breaks my heart that the darling little live-wire of a-bird is gone. She was such a smart Grey, a funny Grey. And oh yes, I remember a special ceremony where you and the lovely Miss Knuckles became a married couple! You two were always so cute together. I'm sorry we've lost a friend. It's sad to think of a Grey bird gone from this world.

As for how I'm doing, I've no complaints. Well, there is this one. Two flights feathers on each side had grown in enough to make it possible to fly across the kitchen to the counter top. I was so happy! having been grounded all summer for safety purposes. With it too cool to go out to the aviary, it was good time to be growing in some flight feathers but then something happened one night- I got scared and thrashed about enough to knock out a whole pile of feathers. There's a picture on my page of some of them. The flight feathers were part of the pile which meant I was back to be a grounded bird. Poor Kelly. Poor, poor Kelly! It's been several weeks but there's no sign of any new ones yet and so I sit and wait for them to grow... Can't wait to be flying again!

Please give a HELLO to Mr. Birdie for me and a kissey~kiss to your darling Mom. It's so good to chat with you, Murphy.

Murphy!! Here's hoping you get to hang out in all your favorite haunts on this spooky holiday. I wonder, just what are those favorite hang out spots these days? For me, it's my play gym at the end of mom's desk or the perches I have either in the kitchen or the family room. No matter where I'm hanging out, I think of you every now and then and wonder how you are. I so hope all is well with you and Mr. Birdie and your sweet Mom too.
