We must be doing something right

Every year, Karma returns to spend her summer vacation at our spa. She takes advantage of the amenities, especially the pool.


The cheapskate never, ever leaves a tip.

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.

  2. Maybe he needs a kiss and will turn into a handsome prince and you’ll all live happily ever after.

  3. We only get Bufos and tree frogs. The Bufos are deadly. Mom becomes a lunatic when she sees them.

  4. We used to call that a dine n dash. Maybe she thinks she’s family and doesn’t have to pay.

  5. Amazing post ❤ Have a great Sunday, & Happy Friendship Day to you & your Loved Ones. http://www.misskymmiee.com

  6. Rude to visit and not even thank you for the hospitality. Time to put frog legs on the menu I think.

    Hugs, Sammy

  7. You sure are doing something right for this little guy to return each year.

    Have a fabulous day,. ☺

  8. Probably because she has no pockets for spare change. 🙂

  9. You’ll have to start making Kismet pay upfront.

    Aroo to you,

  10. Good to see Karma again….even if a cheapskate! (Much better than the rattlers)

  11. Great to see her again!

    • SQUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWK. Naming a parrot “Chicken” is NOT conducive to a bird’s longevity. However, I do wish I had my own room. African greys are the King of talkers. Me, I’m a female Indian Ringneck. Good luck to Chicken, I hope he transcends that terrible name. 🙂

  12. I’ve heard toads are like that!

  13. Well she’s kinda cute in the froggy stakes,xx Speedy

  14. Maybe if you leave a sign out saying she needs to tip… 😛

  15. Late comment but here goes:
    A bit of trivia. Many folks from Hawaii – those of Japanese descent – always take a small frog ornament with then when they travel to Las Vegas. The reason is because the word for frog in Japanese is “kaeru” which happens to sound like the word that means “return home.” The idea is that the money you take to Vegas will ultimately come home with you and bring more, too. So, if you meet another frog, name it Kaeru which works on several levels for you!
