Just when you think miracles don't happen... they start right away! Somehow, the family thinks that regular showers are necessary for me, but up to now I hated them; I did everything to get away from them. But today, as an exception, I couldn't get enough of it. I spread my wings (which I usually don't do during a shower) and even jumped in the sink. Jan put on the tap to let the water drip and I took a long, long shower. Honestly, I don't really know what was wettest: me, Jan, Sophia or the rest of the kitchen.
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!
