Hi! My name is Baldrick Thank you for BOTD 3/20/14

I am a Nanday Conure from Newton, NJ.

Balders, Mr Baldrick, The Boys(because he co-habits with Charlie), Goodfeathers(be- cause he acts like a Nanday Mafiosi)
Baldrick's Hatchday is 8/15(for actor Tony Robinson who played my namesake in the Blackadder Series)


17 years old   M

Nanday Conure

Pasta, fresh oranges, orange juice, Saltines and Cheese-Its

I love to hang out in the townhouse on top of our cage, inside cardboard boxes wtih Charlie.

Foods that I find offensive I run away from. I also am very protective of my preen buddy Charlie Daniels

Mom just overindulges me. Food, toys, attention, can't be beat.

This little guy will disassemble any structure you give them--he is a conure "chop shop"-Baldrick has smuggled a phillips head screwdriver in somewhere, because he is very adept at removing screws
I like companionship. I came to this flock with a cagemate Captain Kevin Darling who left me after 10 years for Samantha Carter. Teal'c and I became cagemates however after 7 years I could no longer tolerate his bossiness, chewing off my flight feathers, so I left him for Charlie Daniels, the Cherry Head Conure

Thursday evening, Dad, Uncle Geno and Uncle J.J. went to see a live theater production of Arthur Miller's "ALL MY SONS", which was excellent. It's one of Dad's favorite plays, and a difficult work to do well. A good night of theater.

Well, we had a day or so reprieve from snow and cold - but it's coming back for all next week including a storm with a foot-or-two of snow.

Dad and Uncle Geno saw "THE REVENANT" - said it was well-made but they didn't really like it.

The other night they watched Dad's favorite acting performance. Dame Maggie Smith's Oscar-Winning role in "THE PRIME OF MISS JEAN BRODIE" (1969). Dad watches that maybe once a year.

We had a fun New Year's Eve with Uncle Geno and Uncle JJ.

They came over around 6:30 for snacks and a movie.

My job, of course, was to go around taste-testing the snacks [potato chips, pretzels, corn chips, crackers] for my approval. I paid extra attention to the peanuts, which needed extra trials.

We watched "WHEN HARRY MET SALLY" (1989) while I preened Uncle Geno on the comfy chair.

Dad made me "Flitzer Coffee" [a few drops of coffee with whipped cream] in my Special Bowl.

New Year's Day was DVD-Movie Day at Uncle Geno's, where they watched:
"The Mysterious Yearning Secretive Sad Lonely Troubled Confused Loving Musical Gifted Intelligent Beautiful Tender Sensitive Haunted Passionate TALENTED MR. RIPLEY" (1999, Dir: Anthony Minghella).
A favorite and underrated film which gets better on every viewing.

Hi.
Dad and I love to play "get the Tail". He chases me and tries to go after my tail or my belly,
and I block him with my beak. I do win most of the time. It makes us laugh. Dad is always making up silly rhymes and songs to go along with the game:

Now, I don't go into his back bedroom - not because it's forbidden, but I respect his space.
On the day he was so sick, I really missed him so I journeyed out to seek out where he was and if everything was ok. He was pleased to see my green head poking around the door to come visit him. We spent maybe an hour together cuddling and talking. Great Daddy-n-Bird Time.

  Hi Baldrick
Long time no Squawk!
Life has been hectic here. Mom volunteered to help with a church course. Then the drain pipes in the house were leaking badly enough for dad to finally take note, as soon as that was on its way to returning to normal, the washer broke. Mom wants to get the baths remodeled (sinks and tub are losing their finish), but had to spend time looking for a washer. WHERE is POLLY time? Is it any wonder I play velcro bird?
In the meantime, the cold was not as bad as eggspected, but it is colder and the trees are pretty--our front maple even has less the 1/2 its leaves left.

We have had a sad week -our dear friend, Grace (94) struggled with life and finally passed peacefully in her sleep on Friday evening.
[Uncle JJ's Mom]
She now joins her husband who went before her just two months ago. We are all thankful they both lead such long and wonderful lives -but it has been a rough year with falls, illnesses and now the loss of both of them.

Dad began October by sharing a favorite scary ghost story film with Uncle Geno: "THE INNOCENTS" (1961) with Deborah Kerr. So good to have intelligent horror films, that don't have to rely on blood and gore. We highly recommend it if you've never checked it out.
It's based on Henry James' "The Turn of the Screw".
