Can't Turn My Back For A Second!

Meet Mr and Mrs Bird. Original names, I know.
Taylor named them when he was much younger. :) They are just part of my zoo here.
But this story is really about Spencer.
I give my parakeets a probiotic supplement. It's good for
them, just like it's good for us! Anyway, I was mixing some into
some water to put into their cage and turned to the sink
to wash my hands. When I turned back the glass was empty!
It took me a second, but I subconsciously remembered Spencer
walking through the kitchen while I washed up.
Yes, he glugged down that water and went on his merry way
before I could even take notice!
Good grief!
Thankfully, it's only healthy things like acidophilus
and lactobacillus. Still, some days I just shake my head!

  3. Geez leaving such drugs out for him to find
    Maybe some feathers will sprout from his behind...lol
    Oh that just worked so well
    Maybe to the glass you should attach a bell
    Then at least you'd know when it was picked up
    And be able to grab the cup

    Have you thought of writing childcare books that entice? ha.

  8. Julie ~ I think you have just as much of a zoo as I do...maybe more! The albino is Mrs Bird. She's Mr Bird's third wife. haha. We've had blue and green wives before.

  9. Can I laugh? *'cause I am* Thank goodness you don't have to feed them arsenic. That would've been tragic. :)

  10. Oh my goodness! Here comes the feathers. I once drank one of my husband's contacts. The airline lost our luggage, so apparently he put his right and left contact in the hotel water glasses. It was hot and dry and guess who needed a drink of water during the night?

    I'm so sorry to read about your gift baskets...they were always so beautiful on your blog...I think there are cutbacks being made everywhere. I hope things pick up soon, for all of us.

  11. happygirl ...Yes PLEASE laugh! Because I did! And shook my head, saying, Oh my gosh! I have to admit now that I've got one of the 12 weeks of summer break under my belt, that the days go by incredibly slowly. lol. Kind of ironic, since there is never a dull moment...maybe that's kind of like a bad dream you can't wake up from? ha. No, not really that bad, but crazy nonetheless. :)

  12. True never to mild
    Although my spelling there was kind of wild
    I think Orlin has chewed some of these buttons so bad
    That I have to slam some down and not hit them just a tad
    Yep blame the cat
    For spelling like that..lol

  13. Anita!!!! Drank a contact...oh that is SO funny. I'm sure it wasn't at the moment...but maybe it was! ha.

  14. Pat ~ Oh, you just left of the E. At least you aren't like me.
    I run the vaccuum over the keyboard
    and suck up a letter or two! Good lord!

  15. I laughed too. I can just picture the whole thing too well.

  20. "Pat ~ Oh, you just left of the E. At least you aren't like me." No, he's not. You left off an "f," haha!

    Love it! Oh, Spencer.
    Also, I think my birds are a bit jealous...they don't get any probiotics :)

    Hi! Betsy...
    Omg!
    Question: What do birds do in the winter?
    Answer:
    They fly south...Therefore, Pat Hatt, took each word right out Of my mouth!

    [Postscript:
    Betsy, please be careful and alert!
    I'm quite the alarmist myself.]

    deedee :-/

  27. You need eyes in the back of your head! That's funny though, glad nothing serious occurred as a result. I love your budgies - as a child I had a blue one, called Beauty. But you don't seem to see them very much in this country these days.

  28. jenny ~ Beauty is the perfect name for a pretty budgie girl! I love that!
