The family had visitors again, nice! Naturally I did my shy act again, so although everybody begged me to sing or whistle, I was as quiet as a mouse. However, I clearly enjoyed myself and loved to be passed from hand to hand. One of the ladies wanted to kiss me, and she kept asking if I would bite her lip. My family explained that although they kiss me the whole day through, I am an undomesticated animal by nature and thus somewhat unpredictable. She kissed me anyway and of course I let her. I am not all that bad!
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!
