When Jan, Hilke and Sophia switched on the TV, instantly they were glued to the screen. This morning (afternoon for us here), four planes were hijacked and crashed into two buildings in the USA. Being an animal, I am not able to grasp such beastly and inhuman acts, but I sense the emotions in my family. What happened there today has shaken the whole world. My family's deepest thoughts are with the victims, in whatever form they may suffer.
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!
