Today was kinda fun... the family had visitors and they all played different instruments: the ukulele, banjo, harmonica and they sang oldies together. Later, when one of the visitors got his accordion, I panicked for a second. It was so huge, shiny and especially loud that I didn't like it at first. However, when I saw (from under Sophia's sweater) that nobody seemed to get hurt by it, I started to like it. Although I have to admit that this particular evening I was one shy, quiet and silent bird, despite all the music that I normally sing along with so loudly.
They say that you get used to everything. This is true, but still we miss our Dandy. We phone to the refugee center regularly to ask about our Dandy, and the answers are always the same: Dandy is still in quarantine but fine, he has adjusted well, he has stopped picking his feathers, he is between other Greys, although still in the same cage on his own. We are not allowed to visit him yet, but we will, as soon as his quarantine period is over!
