    I have not been on often as I would like to be seemed life really got in the way. I have sold all my birds I still have a few straglers that avoided the roundup but they will be captured soon as well. So for now I have only 5 guineas 1 duck 1 goose 2 hens and the 2 emu which are slated for a zoo hopefully soon. I sold them all to a neighbor down the road. So it will be no more outdoor birds for me I am concentrating on my inhome parrot santuary and rescue.

    I made this decission because my world came crashing down on me.

    On December11,2008 I lost my husband of 10 years to a ruptured aortic dissection, he was only 45. And he went through this alone and at the end with a stranger trying to save his life a nameless and faceless person who I will never be able to thank. We started our rescue together and it only seems fair to concetrate on them and I know the outdoor babies will do well I am very good friends with the person who bought them.

    I still enjoy reading your stories so I will try to stick around will have to see how things go around here.

    I'm sorry to hear about your husband, nothing I say can make it better. I'm glad you have your rescue you started together, it will always give you something of him and it's a wonderful tribute. We'll be glad you have you around, make you laugh, make you cry, make you realize you are still alive and that is a good thing.
