Hi, my faithful followers and friends.

Patty’s Worlds had a bit too much junk lying about and it was causing quite a debacle.

We’re all cleared up for the moment and to kick things back off, here’s Sally and what she chose while digging round in my archives.

Enjoy.

Posted on February 20, 2024

Welcome to the series of Posts from Your Archives and I will be sharing posts from the SECOND six months of 2023 from your archives.

If you wish to be included the information is at the the end of the following post which is from the previous series, and shows you what it will look like.

This is the first post from the blog of Patty Fletcher who supports fellow authors and bloggers by featuring their guest posts. I love African Grey parrots and would definitely loved to have had one… since they are so long-lived I wouldn’t want to take one on now but this heartwarming post is the next best thing.

  1. Thanks for letting me share Patty.. Glad your blog is back up and running.. hugsx

    1. Also, you’re a great lady and people can learn so much from you.
      I keep saying, when I grow up I wanta be Sally.

      1. Hi, Jo. I thought of you when I read this post. I remembered about your having worked with and having parrots.
        That’s gonna come in handy for me during the work up of this second book of mine, as the retriever parrots come into play.
        My dad used to have a cockatoo and she ruled the house. She would actually sit on my dad’s shoulder at the table and my mother made her special vegies for suppor. I never dreamed my mother would let a bird eat at her table but by gum she did.
        When Babe passed my dad cried like a little boy. I never saw my dad cry like that about anything.

  2. I love the post. I had a rescued African grey parrot for a while. Her name was Mort. She didn’t care for me much, since she had been mistreated in her last home. She would let me fill her food and water bowls and give her peanuts in the shell, if I was careful to avoid her sharp beak. But I couldn’t pet her. I found her a family with a man–there were no men in the household where she had been abused–and he could do anything with her–cuddle her under his chin, give her a bath, anything at all. What I loved about her was her incredible variety of sounds and calls. She could copy voices from children to elderly people, the noises of different telephones, the beeping of construction trucks backing up, all sorts of things. Mort was a great bird, even with a sad story!

  3. Hi, you’re most welcome for the permission to share. Who wouldn’t say yes to such a great offer? I mean you got people following your blog like crazy. Who wouldn’t want to get in on that?
