Yes, a queen needs a bird for sure. You know, my husband is Jewish so that should make me a JAP (Jewish American Princess) but I'm a Gentile so I'm a GAP (Gentile American Princess). Whatever works is what I'm gonna be!
Chatty, I'll have to tell Sammie how famous she's becoming. If you're in the area, please do stop by and visit (or stay with me, I have a great guest room!). I've learned that going into another room and being quiet is the best way to hear Sammie talk. This is when she practices her vocabulary (they are very proud birds and don't like to embarrass themselves so practice while alone.) She's saying, "Up-Up" which is what I tell her when I want her on my finger. But today, I heard her singing that old Yahoo commerical. Are they still running that? I don't know where she gets some of these words and phrases.
She's doing something strange. When I clean her cage, the two bottom drawers pull out for easy access, and she jumps off her perch and walks over, gets on the open drawer, and watches me clean. It's almost like she's making sure I'm doing a good job. Even the vacuum cleaner doesn't scare her, it actually makes her sing. I think she's showing me ownership or something.
She was trying to imitate the blowers that the lawn people use to blow off the patio. I need to put a stop to that! How annoying would that get?
