Well guys......we leave on Greyhound bus tomorrow to spend the weekend with a bunch of bybull thumping fanatics!

Our granddaughter is getting married Saturday, so we're going to have to do a lot of tongue biting & walking away if ''certain'' subjects get brought up. We don't ever want to be accused of ruining her wedding!

I'm just glad we have a hotel to run to instead of staying with our daughter.....she has the whole wedding party there, & is catering the reception herself......with help from other ''church ladies'', I'm sure.

Rick just said last night that we may leave early & go have dinner alone somewhere. We'll just have to play it by ear.

I loved Alex, Dr. Irene Pepperberg's African grey parrot. He knew what he was talking about! I was so sad when he died.  I haven't checked her web site lately to see what she's doing now.

I've seen several documentaries & am continually amazed at the very large ''smarts'' the birds show.

I like the river dance bird.  I think it's dancing to the music because it's obvious that a lot of that type of bird dances to music.

Coincidently, I just read a book about exotic birds: The Birds of Pandemonium (Life Among the Exotic and the Endangered). The author (Michele Raffin) started with one injured bird, and before long, she was housing a sanctuary (N. Calif). Birds aren't as dumb as we think.

Riverdance bird style!

Comment by Plinius on Thursday

That's a beautiful tap dance! I wonder if the bird does this spontaneously or because of the music?

I think that's an African lovebird.  We had one for a few years when I was in jr. high....Dad adopted her from a neighbor who had to get rid of her because she was nutso.  Kept shredding paper and building nests, and would occasionally lay an egg, but had no mate. Dad wanted to see if he could get a mate for her and breed her.  (He did, and she pitched a fit, and killed the boy.)

Dad was a parrot fan...he grew up with a South American green parrot who could mimic my grandmother's voice perfectly.  When he was in college he lived with his aunt, and she had a mynah who was a VERY silly talker.  Both those birds were long gone by the time I was born.

Anyway, I don't remember what happened to Doc, the African bird, but we also had budgies from time to time, and one of them learned to say quite a few things.

Loren's correct, both in the ethanol and the athleticism. And remember, Helio Castroneves won the "Dancing With Stars" several years ago. Heavy on the pedal, light afoot.
Indiana has a very large population of Amish/German Baptists, etc. We call them "Old Orders" around my area. Really, they're quite friendly, so I won't put them down.
