Cockatiels and Cocktails!

Bird and Birdette have become fast friends. At first, Bird nearly lost his mind over her. I kept them separated, in different cages, only because I wasn't sure if Bird would know how to be social. Bird had spent over 10 years basically by himself. I was afraid that he might try to harm Birdette. When he first met her, he was very excited, paced back and forth on his perch, constantly emitting a soft squawk every minute to two minutes. ( He still does it, even now!) I eventually introduced them while they were outside their cages. Bird is very smitten with her, has eyes only for her and is totally devoted to being her friend. She, on the other hand, could care less if he fell off the face of the planet. Whenever he gets a bit too much for her, she lets him know it with a slight nip (never really touches him, just makes the motion). Today I ingeniously put the two cages together so now they can visit each other, or retreat to their own cage. They seem quite happy with the arrangement and I am quite happy to sit and watch their interactions and antics.

Birdette is in the foreground (the larger of the two) and of course Bird is in the background...

Hope all is well with everyone today.... I'm headed out for an adult beverage to cap off a very beautiful, sunny, summer day off!

One of my favorite fishing spots... Scudder's Lane. What a beautiful day we had yesterday! On a whim I stopped by to see if anyone was around. As you can see it was deserted. Those who have boats had already gone out. I dipped my toes in the cool water and sat for a few minutes in the warm sunshine. Not for long though... had to head back to reality and an evening shift at work. It rained today but I'm hoping for better weather by Thursday.

My home computer is still disabled!

It may be a couple of days before I'm able to post from home....
Interior house painting is very, very disruptive!
My house is in complete disarray; boxes and furniture piled into the middle of the rooms w/tarps covering everything. I can't find the book I was reading and my cat thinks we are moving. My computer has been disconnected and is in parts... monitor here, printer there; it's just plain painful! I'll be sending a post here and there via cellphone but the quality and quantity may vary! I'm still able to visit your blogs while times are slow at work,(something of a rarity, now that it's summertime!) I'm at the library now, and the call of all these books around me is too great.... I have to go explore! Later gaters!

Bad storms In New England! From the deck of Hemispheres Restaurant in Sandwich by the canal, We missed the hail here but other parts of the Cape got hit with quarter sized hail! There's a lull in the storm now, getting ready for round two!
