"It's quarter to 3, there's no one in the place except you and me. So, set 'em up, Joe-----"  Ah, Sinatra!! I love Old Blue Eyes!  Also, Swing.  But really I am a Salsa girl to the bone. Just put on some Latin Tunes and watch my tail!!  Tomorrow I plan to start my memoirs.   You have not lived until you've walked a foot in my talons!

Roxy and Whizzbee Go Beak to Nose!! -- place ur betz

Good day, all you intellectuals out there. I hope you enjoy the photo collection my Executive Assistant put together of me besting my nemesis Whizzbee. He's' one of the catz around here (admittedly, not the smartest). I enjoy interacting with lower forms of life. It amuses me. Nothing like a camera-ready moment. I try my best to provide them as often as possible. I hope to have my own recorder soon, so I can do my own commentary and skip the middle person. Time for a snack and a movie. Squawk you later.

For all you Parrot-Loving Intellectuals Out There---

I am currently working on my personal rendition of the Clint Eastwood movie theme song: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly with an eye toward performance art.  I'm determined to take it to the next level.  My Executive Assistant, Freada must agree.  She has often described my efforts in what she refers to as decibels while saying I've now gone 'over the top'.

I'm also dictating my memoirs.  As soon as Freada evolves past this inconvenient 'opposable thumbs' stage we can really peck it out!  Mean time, Rock On!  and as we say in Psittacus erithacus  circles, Break a Beak!!

If you have not noticed the picture of ME and one of my catz, take a close look: the cat is Whizzbee.  I'm not saying he's of a lesser species however, you can determine that for yourself when you notice exactly where he chooses to sit on MY play-tree, and where the poop is pilling up.  (Yes, this is right before cleaning day, but we take great photo-ops where we can get them.)  btw -- to see a sequence of photos of my interaction with Whizzbee, scroll down to the bottom of the front page of my plog.

Welcome to my PLOG (Parrot Log)

Hey, all you fans out there.  I've decided to keep you informed of my lively intrigues from a Parrot's-Eye View. (Which is, let me tell you, more interesting than my owner's.)  I'll keep you up-to-date on all the latest happenings in my little corner of paradise.  Be watching.  You won't want to miss a thing.  I am articulate, verbose, and (to be perfectly honest) sometimes, racy.  But hey, I can't help it, I was born to fly!!
