YIKES!

"Almost" had an accident last weekend. This was very scary! Emma was out of the cage and a little frightened from something. I had a friend staying the weekend and he was in the foyer walking towards the front door. Well Emma flew into the foyer and landed on the ground on top of my Persian-ish style runner in the foyer. Well she blended in perfectly and my friend almost stepped on her EEEEEEK! Just thinking about it again makes me kinda panic. :cry3:

I have learned to check my feet when they go missing, but I need to remember to remind other people when they visit... Very scary...

I find that the weirdest things happen when guests are about. I usually put everyone up. I'm getting to where I don't even want people to go see the bird room -- they always are so curious. Even if they don't know I have it, my house sounds like a jungle (in a good way) so they start asking questions.

The worker bees for the renovation have been really great. The main guys have birds themselves, and I hear them double checking that everything's safe, making sure the crew knows there are birds, etc.

I’m glad Emma is ok!

I’m used to watching the floor but have to remind others to watch out for Tiki who’s always roaming the floor.

Nerd didn't fly well so he walked everywhere. He trusted us so much he wouldn't move or make noise when we got close to him. One day sister was by his favorite recliner and stepped back to hear a blood curdling screach and Nerd made a emergency escape flight low and right into the couch. We both thought he was mortally wounded and we'd be saying our good byes. Picked him up, felt all over for horrible damages and he looked at me and went erk, his way of saying everything is fine.
After that we learned to shuffle our feet and look for him and he learned to make traveling music and not allow us to get super close if we didn't see him.
