It is getting close to the end of the year and it seems that the children in our neighborhood can't wait to try out all their firework already. Jan and Sophia worry a lot about the coming days, but so far I have been very quiet during the loudest bangs. We'll wait and see.
They say that you get used to everything. This is true, but still we miss our Dandy. We phone to the refugee center regularly to ask about our Dandy, and the answers are always the same: Dandy is still in quarantine but fine, he has adjusted well, he has stopped picking his feathers, he is between other Greys, although still in the same cage on his own. We are not allowed to visit him yet, but we will, as soon as his quarantine period is over!
