I stepped out the back door to put something in the recycle bin. There was a fresh gopher hole and the gopher was hard at work kicking dirt out and Daisy was watching it with intense eyes ready to pounce. She missed and then noticed me and came over to see if I had anything for her to eat. Animals can put on quite a show at times. The insurance agent I wrote about has a bird that talks. She takes it back and forth to work and back home. Mynew (not sure of the spelling) is well behaved with the bird cage open it hangs on the door or stays in his cage. He mostly mocks the agents husband but sometime will mock the agent. She told us one night their electricity went off and the lights went out. Mynew said "hello" "hello" and when no one responded he said in her voice "what in the world?" They laughed so Mynew thought that was fun and wore that phrase out for a long time. When I was young and first married I bought a male parakeet. We lived in an upstairs duplex apartment. The walls were thin so my neighbors (two young Polish girls) must have tired of my constant "hello baby wanna kiss" as I was teaching my Pretty Boy to talk because they started mocking me on the other side of the wall. It got quite funny with the bantering back and forth.
