Not A City Girl Any More !

My small space in a big world

Sasha Returns !

Sasha is a African Grey Parrot who resided in my son’s Verizon store in Philadelphia. When my son moved to Florida and me back to New York Sasha went to Florida with my son. Sasha Stay in Florida with my son’s friend and roommate in Florida when my son moved back to New York. I missed her a lot but the friend always kept us updated on how she was doing. Five years passed and my son’s friend called him to let him know that she could not care for Sasha anymore. My son Brian took a week vacation time, rented a car and headed to Florida to get Sasha. Before leaving he let me know what was going on and ask if I could care for Sasha. Of Course I will!

It has been a little over a week now and Sasha is doing great! Already copying what I say and has the dog commands perfect to where the dogs listen to her. BabyGirl remembers her from Philadelphia and Sasha remembers BabyGirl.

 Midnight however never met Sasha or a talking bird. Midnight was totally confused as to why the bird was telling her to sit and lay down. She was confused but she would sit or lay down it is so funny. (When Midnight cries because she is not getting her way Sasha cries just like her and she will stop.) Poor Midnight so confused. LOL

When I first let her out her cage because African Greys like to be out and about she went for my books, picture frames and curtains to rein her terror on them by tearing them up . I managed to stop her before any real damage happened and put a box out to put her focus elsewhere . It worked! I got pictures of Bird in a box !

I also have been working outside getting all those jobs done before winter hits. I was cleaning out my shed when my neighbor Korie came over to mow my lawn . He had seen I was working on the shed and knew I would not be getting to the lawn because I have to pick and choose due to my limitations. He is a good kid. He is 21 but that is a kid to me. LOL  Now Midnight does not like laying on the grass so I take a chair cushion and put it in the shade for her. Normally when Korie goes by with the lawn mower the dogs will move. Korie was not close enough I guess and the grass flies out the mower and Midnight just laying there . She didn’t even get up afterword. She was not giving up that cushion! In defense of Korie he probably thought Midnight would move like usual. Midnight will not lay in the grass but will lay with grass on her go figure!

My friend in Georgia sent me a picture of a plant she planted but she can’t remember the name of it  so I am posting the picture in hopes someone can tell me what it is.

Well this was relaxing to do but now I must get up and go outdoors because the work won’t get done otherwise!

  1. Lovely parrot and LOL-funny about the dog commands! They are smart birds. The plant is Shiso, also known as Perilla, an edible green used in Asian cuisine. An annual, it self-sows in my MA garden every year.
