I haven't posted for a while, but all is well. I love my little "Bennie" and he is my good bird buddy. Was going through an annoying hormonal spell, but that seems to be dying down, thankfully! He loves to sit and "talk" with me. He's not really into scritches so much, but will let me scratch hie head when HE decides it's okay. I've alos added an albino leopard gecko to my "family". She is a pretty female named "Sheba." They are not near each other; I doubt if either knows the other exists! I recently had to have surgery and was out of work for almost 2 weeks. Of course, Bennie was thrilled that I was home with him! And I was glad for his company! I am single and live alone and it would be pretty lonely without my cheerful little feathered friend!
