Don’s back home again, and I stopped by this afternoon and visited. I hadn’t seen Chipper and Pepper, his birds, since the day 16 or 17 years ago when we were going to remodel and Don’s wife Amalie invited me over to see some of the things they’d had done at their place.

Pepper did not deign to let me too near her, and scooted over to Don if I got too close.  She was so funny–her behaviors reminded me of a cat.  Look at me, adore me, but only do what I demand.

I asked lots of bird questions, and shared back as much of the Scharffenberger as he would allow me to.  It was good to see him back home again, and he allowed as how that was a better place to visit him–he could show off, there.

Thank you, everybody, for looking out for him with me. Much appreciated.

Happy Birthday from me too! I NEVER ever would have guessed the age ever. I thought he was around Alison and Richard’s age! He sounds so young…

All the best to BOTH of you! Get better!

You shared your Scharffenberger?! I could understand if Don were still in the hospital but he was back home by then. You could have gotten away with a KitKat or Mars bar at that point ; ) Maybe Pepper was mad because you didn’t bring her anything!

So sweet of you to go visit him. I’m sure it uplifted his day. And to share chocolate….wow!

Sounds like a lovely visit! I’ve never been able to do more than admire birds from a distance. We just don’t seem to connect…
