I just entered my portrait of Rufus in the photo contest!

Here is my favorite portrait of Rufus:

Rufus the Wonder Bird says "Ain't I Something?"

I took this in our back yard. I caught him in the act of being his usual silly self.

If you like this portrait of Rufus the Wonder Bird, please vote for it on the Voting Page.

Thank you!

Today, my parakeet nibbled the jelly beans she’s been sitting on!

This is an update to two other recent blog posts:

My parakeet is trying to hatch a jellybean!

My parakeet is trying to hatch three jellybeans, now!

I posted recently about replacing my parakeets eggs with white jellybeans to get them to stop laying eggs.

Well, the jig is up. Today, I caught my parakeets nibbling on their "eggs". So, I guess they aren’t fooled any more. Not bad, though. We switched out the first egg for a jelly bean on May third, so the plan lasted about four weeks! She had been sitting on them every day until today.

I hope she stops laying eggs. As I said before, her mate is her brother, so we don’t want any babies.

Rufus wants to say “Hi”!

My parrot Rufus dictated this blog entry. Here’s proof:

Rufus the Wonder Bird!

Just kidding! Some time back, my friend Iwo made an animated gif from a picture of Rufus. She sure did a good job!

It’s stormy again. I miss the sun!

It is raining, make that pouring, again. This is thunderstorm and tornado season here in Oklahoma City. I just looked at weather.com. The sun is not going to be out again until June first.

Bummer!

I set up my new Guestbook!

I’ve been reluctant to set up the new Guestbook that we have with our spaces, now. Until now, my Guestbook had been elsewhere, and it was working just fine. But, now I have a new one.

Thanks Kimmy!

Finally! Pictures of me and my hubby!

I’ve finally decided to post pictures of me and my hubby. Here we are:

OK, just kidding. I went to the Become an M&M website and created the beautiful works of art on the Character Creator page. It’s fun and easy to do. 

My hair is more wavy than that, though. They don’t have a lot of hair styles to pick from.

At least they have my favorite shoes! I can’t believe they had my favorite shoes as an option! I wear my pink Birki sandals all day, every day. And, my hubby wears black athletic shoes every day, too. So, all and all, these pictures are pretty accurate!

Wanna play? Go here: Become an M&M

My parakeet is trying to hatch three jellybeans, now!

I wrote last time about my parakeet who we wanted to stop laying eggs. For the last several days, she’s been happily sitting on three white jellybeans! My little birdies give me so much joy!
