Hi
Long 2 day journey.

Got home yesterday & slept 15 hours.

How are you all n feathered angels

It feels so traumatic n overwhelming. I have no wifi so lucky the mobile is still ok n I have my phone.

@Just-passn-thru has been watching over my Angel's Penny n Rio.

I thank her with all my heart for all her love n compassion.

I think I am in quarantine but Australia is pretty virus safe compared to US n I wore a mask. Airports were empty n plane gsd 22 people. I had a row to myself n one person in front n none behind.

Required masks on plane except when eating. I took a cab home.

I should be safe


Hi Susan, Penny N Rio

Can't wait to see you all & I appreciate all you,very done.
You're my angels in this crazy world.

Sorry, I could not come online but data in Australia was very limited & honestly I could not bear to be reminded of my situation as it caused me much distress.

I can't believe what has happened to the world. I only hope a cure is found soon.

Who knew a trip to be with mom for her 91st birthday would turn into a world like this. Worse places to be in exile but being away was always full of stress n the shock of being g home is more overwhelming than I anticipated. Everything feels so traumatic n strange. The refrigerator is bare. No fruit or veggies. I ate tuna n crackers. Have ramen noodles.

Glad to finally be home safe.

Hoping everyone is doing well n is safe in this crazy world.

I have no wifi but lucky my phone is still working. Its limited data but hopefully enough to connect me to the things that need to be resolved. Can't even access my voicemail. My life is mess but thankfully I am safe.

Welcome back!
I was wondering about you the other day. So, you were stuck there the whole time!
You are so lucky you had a reliable, amazing and big-hearted bird sitter!
I bet Rio and Penny gave up on seeing you again, they will be surprised!

Welcome back, Nice to hear you are home! I´m sure Penny and Rio will be so excited to see you :)

You are very lucky that @Just-passn-thru was kind enough to care for your birds for such a long time.

Glad you are back! Lots of grocery stores have delivery or pickup now which helps reduce the risks. I have been in a grocery store maybe 5 times since March!

I have family in the states with me who can’t go back to Venezuela, and a childhood friend who lost his wife a few years ago...went to the Philippines and fell in love and married and moved there...

And came back to the states right before Covid to finish up some financial business, and has been stuck here ever since.

And with a population of 330,000,000 people, definitely much more, there is no higher death rate in the U.S. than anywhere else.

Just reading this now.
Glad you made it back safely.

When you're able to get back on track and settled in. We can arrange for Penny and Rio to get home to you.

I never got an email about you're travel plan.
Finish you're quarantine...

Let's plan for next Sunday or Monday after Thanksgiving.

My Husband will be home to help me bring Penny and Rio back home.

Call me when you can to make arrangements.

Everyone here on the Fourm has been very concerned about you , we are relieved you're back safe and ok.

May God bless you abundantly and overwhelmingly @Just-passn-thru

@camelotshadow I'm glad you made it back home and I'm seriously glad that God led you to such a fantastic person to hold your babies for you. There's not many people in this world that would understand what our birds mean to us and how precious their lives are. They were nurtured and cared for while you were gone.

Thank goodness, all turned out well ...
We can take a deep breath and sigh of relief now that you're back safe.
Take your time getting things in order.

A couple more weeks is not a problem .

My sentiments exactly. Thanks as right now being back though a relief has much to put my life back together. My mind still is overwhelmed.

Thank heavens my angels have angels n God was shining down & @justpassinthru was there to see the light n answer the call.
Forever will she be their saviour
