Here’s the latest from the ever-eccentric local message boards:
Are you, or someone you know, comfortable around parrots with an attitude? We are looking for someone to care for Lucy, our Blue Front Amazon, while we travel. We’ll be gone weeks at a time, too long for her to be confined to her cage. Her wings are clipped so she doesn’t fly but she has been known to jump off her cage when startled. Because of the cage’s seed guards she can’t climb back up and needs to be rescued from the floor.
If she senses your fear she will bite, but if you know birds and are confident she’ll let you handle her. If this sounds like a job for you let me know and we’ll set up a meet and greet to see how it goes. We’ll be traveling a lot in the future so we’d like to find her a real birdy buddy if possible.
Is there an avian Tinder?
My friend has lots of blooms on her kiwi plants, but she says the male seems to be impotent. Does anyone have a male plant that she could get a branch from to use for pollinating, so she can fool her females?
Or maybe kiwi Viagra?
Any Goat Sitters Out There? We’re looking for someone to take care of our two goats, one cat and several chickens for times when we’ll be gone. We would appreciate recommendations from anyone out there.
Goat Butcher: Looking for one – thanks for replying directly to my email.
Maybe they gave up on finding a goat sitter.
Is anyone missing their horses? some arrived in my yard today
Apparently good horse sitters are also hard to find.
In search of worms. Yes, worms. Looking for red wiggler (Eisenia fetida) for a worm composter.
This post immediately reminded me of the immortal jingle from WKRP in Cincinnati.
A YEAR AGO: Rio bought her compound. You will be glad to hear that A and her husband finally moved into the apartment they were attempting to buy – about 7 months after this post. Whew!
FIVE YEARS AGO: Our beloved friend Paul was visiting and our beloved Schatzi was still with us.
