Disaster into triumph!

Klutzy me. At some point I must have dropped a sunflower seed. Believe me, it isn’t on purpose-I don’t wast sunflower seeds. It was a disaster that I knew nothing about. Now, the seed has sprouted and I have many seeds instead of just one. I think I’ll become a farmer.

Welcome to Parrot Day

We are a little under siege. With temp in the 110’s F and a fire 25 miles away with some of our friends evacuated, we’re doing this on the SQUAAAAWK (not the cheap,

Update: We lucked out. The wind blew the fire away from us. We could smell the smoke, however.

 

I’ll celebrate with parrot jokes (I’m an expert-I am a parrot joke). Here goes

lady goes to her parish priest one day and tells him, “Father, I have a problem. I have two female parrots but they only know how to say one thing.” “What do they say?” the priest inquired. “They say, ‘Hi, we’re prostitutes. Do you want to have some fun?'” the woman said embarrassingly. “That’s obscene!” the priest exclaimed, “I can see why you are embarrassed.” He thought a minute and then said, “You know, I may have a solution to this problem. I have two male parrots whom I have taught to pray and read the Bible. Bring your two parrots over to my house and we will put them in the cage with Francis and Job. My parrots can teach your parrots to praise and worship. I’m sure your parrots will stop saying that…that phrase in no time.” “Thank you,” the lady responded, “this may very well be the solution.” The next day, she brought her female parrots to the priest’s house. As he ushered her in, she saw his two male parrots were inside their cage, holding their rosary beads and praying. Impressed, she walked over and placed her parrots in with them. After just a couple of seconds, the female parrots exclaimed out in unison, “Hi, we’re prostitutes. Do you want to have some fun?” There was a stunned silence. Finally, one male parrot looked over at the other male parrot and said, “Put the beads away, Francis, our prayers have been answered!”

 

Late one night, a burglar broke into a house that he thought was empty. He tiptoed through the living room but suddenly he froze in his tracks when he heard a loud voice say: “Jesus is watching you!” Silence returned to the house, so the burglar crept forward again. “Jesus is watching you,” the voice boomed again. The burglar stopped again. He was frightened. Frantically, he looked all around. In a dark corner, he spotted a bird cage and in the cage was a parrot. The burglar breathed a sigh of relief, then he asked the parrot: “What’s your name?” “Clarence,” said the bird. “That’s a dumb name for a parrot,” sneered the burglar. “What idiot named you Clarence?” The parrot said, “The same idiot who named the Rottweiller, Jesus.”

 

 

The point is that some of our friends in Cave Creek have been evacuated. We don’t think that will happen to us but we’re getting prepared and including our dogs and bird. in our preps,

Thanks to Ann of Zoolatry for the artwork. My efforts come out looking like chicken scratching, however I do Jackson Pollock on the cage floor in the true parrot method..

Flower friday

Here in the desert, we don’t get many flowers except at the middle of April to the middle of May.

We’ll start off with the KPB (Kenzie Pi$$ing bush) which Kenzie used to fertilize with his wet fertilizer.

Then we have the golden torch cactus which flowers a few times a year

and the huge Argentine Giant (at least the flowers are giant)

Help, I’m going nuts.

 

Kaci, I’m going nuts. We’re stuck in this house and the parrot won’t shut up. She keeps repeating everything. Can’t she say something new? Doesn’t she ever have something original to say?
