Today I was even more wild and wanton than usual. I pretended to be a torpedo, ready to attack. I flew around the living room and dived on Jan's shoulder, screaming with joy and pecking in his ear. If you wouldn't have known better you'd think I was a nasty, naughty bird. Fortunately Jan realized it is just my way to get rid of my surplus of energy and show my love at the same time. It didn't hurt anyway, because I know I have to be gentle with ears.
A lot has changed in my life... I got married and moved to Canada. Of course I am very happy with my new life, but I will miss visiting Dandy! However, I am glad to know that he is VERY happy... he has a large aviary to play in and certainly doesn't miss his old life. We got a lot of flack from some people, who thought we abandoned Dandy, didn't love him, didn't even try... all I can say is that we always did the best we could, and that we always had Dandy's very best interest at heart. We thought it would be very selfish of us to keep Dandy in an environment where he was very unhappy, just to satisfy our needs. Perhaps we could have done some things differently, we did not have the knowledge I acquired later. Dandy, my sweets, I still miss you!
