Yep, I’m a Bird Lady. I love animals and I like to surround myself with pets. In addition to my three mutt dogs, two free-range box turtles, and my goldfish in the pond, I have a lot of pet birds. They are all parrot type birds including two cockatiels, two African grey parrots, a lovebird and a lot of parakeets. Here’s a few of my birds:
My cockatiels, Penny and Jonah, just came to see me. They must have heard me thinking of them, tee hee. I open their house first thing in the morning, and they get to choose if they want to play on top of their house, or jump off and waddle over to see Mom.
Oh, in addition to being a Bird Lady, I am also a wife with a very understanding hubby. Thank you, sweetie!
My birds have their own website! Their website has their biographies. Some of my birds are adopted and I talk about how they came to live with me. I am very much in favor of adopting homeless animals! All three of our doggies are adopted mutts.
Here’s the first video I ever took with our digital camera:
This video is a peak inside the secret world of X. You can hear me and my hubby talking!
Here’s a Link to my other videos.
I promised that I wasn’t going to talk about my new glasses any more, but ….
… I’m doing pretty good everywhere except with the computer monitors. Since the lenses are graduated, only the middle is in focus, the edges of my monitors are still fuzzy. It feels like I’m looking through a fishbowl. It’s very distracting!
But, without my glasses, I catch myself leaning forward to see the screen better. I’m going to see if I can keep the glasses on all day while I’m working at the computer today. Wish me luck!
Well, I’ve got my new glasses on. I wrote about it the last two blog entries, after this I’ll try not to bore you with it any more.
Anyway, my hubby took time off work to drive me to get my glasses. I didn’t want to drive with them on since the prescription is so different, and also, I wanted to look at he scenery on the way home to see the difference……
Wow! I can see birds a lot better now! I’ve been a bird watcher for twenty or so years, and I hadn’t noticed my vision had gotten so bad! The birds look great with my new glasses.
They will take some time to get used to. I already have had to take them off to finish this post. I have to hold my head back too far to see the screen with the glasses on. I got the graduated deal, where there are unlimited focal lengths. It’s the same as trifocals, but without the two lines. Any way, I like the glasses for outside, but not for the computer just quite yet. I’m looking forward to seeing what TV and movies look like, now. Well, it IS my day off. I think I’ll go watch a movie that I taped.
