The Postman cometh

I was all set to post on something unimportant but Kaci and Kali came up and they were very excited. It was all about a package that came for ME!


It’s for me all right. Let’s see what’s it’s about.  Lookee here! A Kismet garden flag!


plus a personalized seed cup!


It makes my perch MINE!

SAM_1863I see that it’s from Acme Mfg. Co. whose motto is “where the roadrunners shop”. I think they’re confused-it’s where the coyotes shop. Anyway I love it-thank you. “What’s that”? “OK, I’ll stop  SQUAAAAAWKing about not having a personalized flag and bowl”.

“That only eliminates my second worst problem. Can you do anything about getting me a boy friend-and don’t use Acme?”

Boy friend, boy friend, SQUAAAAWK. Boy friend,SQUAAAAAAAAAWK. Kismet wants a boy friend. Boy friend , boy friend, SQUAAAAAAAAAWK SQUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWK.

About Kismet

I'm a 16 year old Indian Ringneck parrot curmudgeon in New River, Arizona in the wild west country. If you're a sunflower seed, you're dinner.

  1. I think they could have done better. I’m just saying. If you’re going to settle then okay. Now for the boyfriend, Good luck with that.

    Have a birdtastic day. ☺

  2. Aren’t you the lucky one to get a personalized cup and flag/ Be careful what you wish for. I went to visit a married couple that I know and after spending 20 minutes with them, I decided that considering to be in a relationship again was stupid. All they did was fight and argue. I’ve been widowed for almost 23 years and I don’t need drama in my life. Think again about the boy friend dear Kismet.

  3. Well they did their best and if you’re happy then so am I. As for the boyfriend, I sometimes hear a screech owl out back. What do you think?

    Aroo to you,

  4. Good job on getting your “stuff.” I guess they are keeping you. As for a boyfriend, I never had one before Noodle, and I think the wait was worth it. Be sure he will preen your feathers and share his treats. By the way, Noodle has two new birds he wants to give away, so you might check on if either one is a boy bird.

  5. We got lotsa male burdbrains round here – momma says dey is pretty common, so maybe we can send ya some of ours.

  6. Wait one darn nanosecond that flag pole has an eraser on the end and they can delete you anytime they want!
    My neighbors vacated there house stuck the mortgage company and stuck it to their birds. Yep they freed them ~ I got their cage off of the curb and cleaned it and I have it sitting on a chair in my backyard. They fly in to feed because we are feeding them but we cannot figure out how to capture them. The wild birds are picking on them.
    If I get them one can be your boyfriend because they are handsome birds. You can date me.

    • OK, I can understand having life problems. I can’t understand completely abandoning those whom you took on voluntarily. There is a colony of my kind in New York City, and I imagine they or their ancestors have been abandoned. They’ve survived the winters despite being tropical birds. A lot of abandoned pets aren’t so lucky. The peeps took on Kali, she had been turned in after 2 days for being “wild”. That’s what they wanted-a terrier. She was wild, but soon figured out that she was “home”. Did I mention that she’s smart? She’s great and it’s our gain.

  7. It’s about time, and it’s about time you got that boyfriend!!

  8. Okays, I GUESS they did an okay job there Kismet, butts I thinks you need to steal the peeps plastic and go online and gets yourself some new gear! Something fancy with sparkles…maybe some neon for your flag!
    Anyhu, I hopes you have some luck with your boyfuriend. I would set you up with Ma’s Burdies Klay and Curry, butts I thinks they might be gay. or they’re just really good furiends. I’m still tryin’ to figure them out.

  9. Ha, ha. Way to ‘score’ Kismet. Seriously, beats a sharp stick in the eye, barely. 😉

  10. That’s a #2 pencil, er flag staff. That’s the best money can buy.

  11. BOL! or should that be S(quawk)OL! They did a good job.

    We know all about the equinox and stuff….Aussies just say ‘forget that’…September is a Spring month, so it’s Spring.

  12. Hmm…….a boyfriend huh? Have you tried Squawkmatch.com?????

    Hugs, Sammy

  13. Kismet I’m your matchmaker… how about Captain Hook, my Rooster? He is a widower and he loves grapes and iceberg salad… he is very verbal and blacklisted in the whole neighborhood for being the alarmclock in the earliest morning :o)

  14. No full sized flag like the pups? Maybe for Christmas?

  15. Oh my gosh!! Love the flag and bowl! Yer peeps are too much, huh? We have TONS of Eagles, Ospreys, and herons here. Think ya want one a them? Let me know, and I’ll see if the peep can ship ya one. BOL🎁😉

  16. Kismet….what a fabulous surprise! The flag and seed cup are perfect. Now, as to the boyfriend, that’s pretty subjective, unless you want one of those mail order creatures….

  17. yippee and guess what else is going to come your way?that’s right Kismet you won my ASPCA giveaway too Congratulations ,Can you get your staff to email my mum with you address to rachel.dejong28@googlemail.com ,xx Speedy

    This is a group not an individual.
    We in the Midwest are seeing this repeatedly! And it sucks for all the pitties that need that money going to them.

  19. A group is a collection of individuals of like minds. This group stuck by the three day limit even though they couldn’t get a vet to read the microchip on Easter weekend (they didn’t try very hard). Why wouldn’t they be overjoyed to return a dog to the place of happiness? Isn’t putting a dog in a great situation their mission and nothing would be greater than a reunion with loved ones. I guess there is no barrier to any group of people call themselves rescuers. I salute the volunteers that give time, money and a lot of effort into genuine rescue. As with anything human, there are fraudsters around.

    • Greatly said BRAVO!
      Unfortunately we have a number of cases just like this one around me happening now. The rescues want to keep the great looking ones. Even a breeder in Indiana who does rescue kept one beautiful one for herself with a fight.
      The little wheaten pittie that I wanted had three foster homes and did not get his forever home till he was five years old. He could have had a forever home with us now for seven years. This all happened to Lee one year before I was born.

  20. The kismet flag is cute. I’ll give you a star for that. 😛
