This is a pretty solid idea: Works For Me Wednesday
Ya'll know I've got nothing like the dedication to do anything every Wednesday, even post a question, but I'm impressed nonetheless.
It just so happens, though, that I actually do have a question for everyone. I've always wanted a bird. I think I'd love a bird. They seem to be like dogs, in that they need and love companionship, but without all the dogness that being a dog seems to require.
Anyone have any experience with birds?
I don't think I'm home enough to have a loving, handfed, solitary bird - it would be alone too much and go nuts. But maybe a little corner piece with 4 songbirds would give me a nice feel and pleasant noises. I don't often turn on the TV, radio or music, so breaking the silence pleasantly would be nice. Especially if they were hand fed enough to accept the occasional shoulder-ride.
... Once I put all the cats out, that is. Grrr. I love the one cat, but the other two have just about driven me past my tolerance. I'm too civilized to dispose of a living being for convenience sake, but just hillbilly enough to give it hard thought from time to time.
