Jo. Lessons

Dear Bird.  Stop picking at that one spot behind the shower. It's fibreglass and studies show that its Bad for you. Yes, that piece with the red tap on the hole that you made, and yes the covered hole by the red tape that I put in you way. What's that? What colour of red tape? That same colour of red tape STUCK TO YOUR BEAK. That red tape.

Bad Dream Bird

All of Jo's feathers fell out, his tail came off in one piece,  I ran around to find him and he had turned into two birds. Two Baby Jos.  TWO ! Then I woke up in a cold sweat.

Distilling Bird

I was running a batch of water through the distiller and had to keep monitoring the temperature. So I borrowed the bird's smaller perch and taped my tablet to it so that it would broadcast the temperature throughout the WiFi.  The set up is in the bathroom, and gets pretty warm and humid. I close the door but leave it open a crack for air flow. I leave the three dogs and two cats crashed in the living room with Jo sitting high on his large perch. All is good for an hour or so as I work upstairs in the office. I check the broadcast, temp looks good, levels are fine. But I am thinking that it is kinda quiet down there. I check the broadcast again and all I can see is the ceiling. The tape must have let go in the humidity. I go downstairs and find three dogs, two cats, and no bird. I peek in the door to the bathroom, much wider now, and this is what I find.
