Last night, Sophia couldn't sleep a wink... she was jumpy all afternoon... Jan and Hilke were high in the sky... she got a phone call that she was selected for the job!!!!! Congratulations, dear Sophia. As for me, I showed my gratitude during her telephone conversation by whistling and shouting. Her colleague-to-be asked if this was the famous parrot that he heard over the phone line? It was, and proud Sophia was of it too.
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!
