A very Sandy morning…

And it came to pass at the end of the 1st day of Hurricane Sandy, that Garnet opened the window of his apartment and he sent forth one of his parakeets to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground; but the bird found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him, for the waters were on the face of the whole of New York City: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into his apartment and proceeded to go back to sleep!

Bittersweet…Farewell My Birds

DSC_1272.jpg

I started training them to fly long distance a few months ago (in an apartment, while playing with them, you prevent them from landing for about 8-15mins at a time with 1min breaks) they eventually gain endurance and can fly quicker and for much longer. Although I wanted to be the one to at-lease  give them a last meal…..since they have been with me for 5yrs, but I found out that they were set free ..by accident while I am away in Montreal; I was furious for while of course but given the current heat wave that was approaching before I left…I guess I would have release them around this time too. Highly doubt it but I hope I spot them in prospect park sometime.

What’s for Breakfast?

Somehow, my parakeets are always up before me; hovering over my head 10mins before my alarm goes off. Ahh, my #1, from 7am to 12pm I can’t function properly without it, but according to Google instant search Breakfast is the 10th in the “Importance of” list…..

At Petco to get a companion for my bird, his last one flew out the window late last summer. While walking out I spotted this sign. This is beyond hilarious to me. I mean what is the wedding attire going to be; tuxedo & wedding dress?  I should  attend out of curiosity and to photograph this.

Turns out there’s a eHow article on How to Throw a Dog Wedding.
