What the hunters don't successfully harvest we see roaming around until the red tailed hawks get them. We can always tell when he has a big hunt. There will be 5 hawks in a single large oak tree.

Yes, an Indian Ringneck parakeet. The wild ones come mostly in green, but mine's supposedly a blue pallid (colour). Looks like this one:(Well, when he HAD feathers!) http://www.indianringneck.net/sitebuilder/ima...

Phoning the vet again today to enquire about the blood test. It's been much too long now. They said they'd phone me back yesterday, but never did. I don't know if they just forgot or what but I hope they get their shit sorted now and tell me what the results are!!! I paid a lot of money for those damn tests!

7878 - Bet they'll have a million excuses and stories again!

Well, I phoned the vet again about 3 hours ago, and as suspected, they had a million-and-one excuses again, and I'm STILL waiting for them to "phone me back". Yet again! This is getting absolutely ridiculous and when I phone them now, I'm not going to be friendly. I demand an answer from them NOW! My patience is wearing very thin

I've decided, if they say they'd phone me back, I'm going to say no, I'll hold. Doesn't matter how long I have to wait, I'm not hanging up before I get my answer! So they had better be prepared. I am NOT a very happy camper at the moment

8885 - Bet they'd get me my f**king results next time I phone

*#%^@!

I phoned them again now, and apparently they're waiting for the fax to come through. Couldn't they tell me that on Thursday already???

They said they'd phone me back. Yet again. But I'm not counting on it. This is really getting ridiculous now, and the longer the wait, the more I stress about the outcome...

So here we go again, round 3 of this waiting game. Great.

6754 - Cool. Let's hope that's a good sign

The vet just phoned me. My ringneck tested positive :'(

We're going to have him euthanized :'(

Now we're worried about our African Grey. The disease is highly contagious, and if he tests positive too, I'm going to blame myself because I brought my ringneck into our home

Bubblegum, you will be missed, but will live on in our hearts and memories

So sorry to hear about your bird Ruby. Get rid of everything he may have touched, and here's hoping that will lessen the chance of your Parrot contracting the same disease. A sad day indeed.

Hugs.

It can be. But trust me, it gets a little better in time.
I get more feeling when I think about some of my dogs than I do about relatives.
Pity man and beast cannot go to the happy hunting ground together, eh?

Morning friendlies

Nearly Friday, lol. Been a rough week so far. Work load is picking up, and it's driving me insane. I hate when we're this busy, and members of the public keep pressuring us for answers on complaints they have. And the phone has been ringing a lot more than usual, and it just ruins my day everytime it rings, because I know it means more work for us! Or rather, more work for ME. My boss doesn't hold up his part of the deal, and I'm left having to deal with people who want to follow up on complaints they gave through a month or two ago, that hasn't been attended to yet.

Some days I just feel like running away

Today is a scorcher. 38 (100) degrees! And my aircon isn't working.
But I won't complain about the heat (much). It rained A LOT yesterday, with a little bit of hail too

While huddled around the barrico of rum to keep warm my mates and I came up with how to tell friends.

1) a friend would visit you in jail.

2) A good friend would bail you out.

3) A great friend, would probably be in the next cell.

4440, bet we freeze again tonight.

Early last week our HIGH was -3 below zero,celcius. Wind chill pushed -25/30..... 100 degrees.... Must be nice. Storms with rain/hail here are signs of tornadic activity.... Do y'all have tornadoes there?
