She was not quite what you would call refined. She was not quite what you would call unrefined. She was the kind of person that keeps a parrot.....Mark Twain

"Just A Bird"

From time to time, people tell me, "Lighten up, it's just a bird" or, "That's a lot of money for just a bird." They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a bird."

Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a bird." Many hours have passed when my only company was "just a bird", but I did not once feel slighted.

Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a bird", and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a bird" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.

If you too think it's "just a bird", then you will probably understand phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise." "Just a bird", brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy.

"Just a bird", brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person. Because of "just a bird", I will rise early, and look longingly to the future. So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a bird" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future; the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.

"Just a bird" brings out what's good in me, and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day. I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a bird" but the thing that keeps me from being "just a human."

"So the next time you hear the phrase "just a bird." Just smile, because they......"just don't understand!"

I was so nervous!! ha ha ha I am sure you will be able to tell!! LOL It airs on Saturdays at 11 a.m. Here is the link to her site.

Bonjour everybody, Paris here. I thought we would do some Saluki Yoga to start the day!! :)

The first thing we need to do before we start is have a good stretch!

This move is called the tail bend. First you grab the end of your tail...

....and you pull the tail up and over the back and hold!

Now for the leg breaker. You have to put your leg behind your head like this and....

...then you see how far you can bend your leg up over your back!!!

So that is how I keep looking so cute!!!
Au revoir

Here at the Zoo we feed a diet of raw meat, bones and veggies. Here is Paris eating a bunny for lunch!!

Even our birds eat fresh fruits and veggies, grains, beans and legumes. We do also feed a seed and pellet mix .

Variety is the key!!

This is so yummy!!!
