A friend asked me today if my birds talked. “Not English,” I replied. “Pepper is a female, and female cockatiels tend not to talk.”

But that reminded me of an incident several years ago. I had just pulled into our driveway, and was getting out of the car, when I heard a voice --


I looked around, but didn’t see anyone.


I still didn’t see anyone, so I walked out to the street, and looked right and left. Not a soul in sight.


It finally dawned on me. It was my next door neighbor’s parrot. So goodbye, already.

Well, speaking of birds, here’s a cartoon I just received:

When I count to three, you will wake up and never want to chase birdies again.


  1. Did you make up that caption? As I type I hear my cat chirping to the birds outside the window ("Go, Fly, Save yourself birds!")

  2. Looks like the cat's saying, Yes, your Honor!
