just out of reach
Awwwwwwwwww........thankyou for this Raph.
Kinda reminds me of when I was little and we had a budgie named Robbie. He was certainly an odd bird. Words came easily to him and he had a childlike personality.
Before any of us realized just how cruel it was to own an alligator, our family bought a tiny one. We named him Ollie and he was oh, maybe ten inches long if that. Ollie was lonely though. Me being at school all day, Mom and Dad gone to their business, my sister Enchantress at work also. He needed companionship.... of the animal/bird kind.
One night when we had Robbie out for his usual evening flight of the livingroom and roll the ball on the rug game, we decided to bring Ollie out as well.
The two bonded instantly!! Robbie would jump up onto Ollie's back and ride around the livingroom floor, and Ollie seemed quite interested in the budgies toys. But, naturally Ollie didn't live long. I mean...what do you feed a baby alligator? We tried everything. But, he just was not meant to be a pet. We were so sad and it took us a long time to forgive ourselves for purchasing one of natures wild creatures.
Nature is a wonder isn't it?
lol.... so was my family.
