    Re: Tinkerbell - Love of a flying grey parrot in Taiwan

    Deanna,

    Always remember that birdwhisperer of Tsaoling is the person I aspire to. I had not even realised he was teaching me from day one when he broke up a conversation on feelings of birds. Luckily I wrote and recorded even when I had no clue what he was saying then just think it was cute and quirky.

    Gwaigwai is a Chinese kind of ghost, a mischeivious ghost. Accept culturally we came from different backgrounds. Not all ghosts are evil in Chinese. Like dragons in the West are evil and guarding good and dragons in the East are mighty and generally no intentions to harm you, except from collateral damages

    Kai,

    It is better to think of your birdie as wild, and despite being wild, can enter into a friendly relationship with you.

    I think folks will be happy to read both reports. Do check the links to the Yunnan Bai Yao for yourself, your cat, your dog, your birdie.

    Cross your fingers that I get through 3rd week and 3rd month and beyond.

    Re: Tinkerbell - Love of a flying grey parrot in Taiwan

    You would not want me around when you made your mash because I would have to eat too much of the fruits before you mashed them. Are the Chairman Kaga bell peppers sweet? I never heard of them over here in the US.

    I am happy Jackie flew away from Seiben and you do really need to be careful and make sure Seiben is locked up when Jackie is out because cats will be cats and they do like to hunt birds. I am happy Seiben isn't afraid of you and in his cat head he knows exactly why you were mad and why you chased him. In my American way I have to say he came to you that night to "kiss butt" and say he was sorry for chasing Jackie. I am happy you understood why and decided to be nice to him that night.

    Congratulations on giving up smoking!!! It has to be one of the hardest things in life to give up but it is so worth it. I bet food tastes better now and I hope you dont let that Nic back into your life again.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    boomergirl,

    I called the sweet bell peppers Chairman Kaga as he always took an iconic bite from one when he started his Iron Chef show.

    I am still holding out past week 3.

    As for Sieben and Jackie, read this and cross your fingers for all of us.

    Re: Tinkerbell - Love of a flying grey parrot in Taiwan

    Wow, seeing the pictures with Jackie and Sieben so close to each other is both scary but yet so exciting because that is a huge step for all of you so that everybody in your house can live in peace with each other. I dont think I would ever be brave enough to let a bird get that close to a cat but I know your smart enough to know it was OK to do it.

    The words that Karen Pryor wrote about you are so nice and I think your a wonderful bird man with a huge heart for all beasties.

    Good job on not smoking, it looks like you are on your way to a better life without that nasty Nic in your life.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    Deanna,

    If I reported fully on Sieben in last report, you be even more paranoid.

    But it got better.

    Re: Tinkerbell - Love of a flying grey parrot in Taiwan

    Your pictures of Jackie and Sieben still make me nervous Shanlung but I know you are a animal whisperer and you know exactly how to handle Sieben and keep Jackie safe. It has to hurt your heart to leave your pets and go away but it least your wife is home to take care of them. I hope if someone does come and take Jackie she will be safe and please tell them if they release her to take pictures of it for us who follow your blogs. Jackie is so pretty and has come such a long way since you first got her.

    I hope you dont give in to your cravings and it is going to be hard when others are around you smoking. Try to think about how good you feel now, how wonderful food tastes now and just how hard it was for you to go cold turkey and especially how good life is and how much you want to live to be a very old man. With Nic in your life it is cutting life shorter. My husband tries hard to give it up and he has cut down to only smoking at work and never at home. It works for him and keeps him sane when he is at work where others smoke. If he drinks he smokes but still never by me so I cant complain. He is weaker then you so try hard not to start up again while your away. I smoked but I got something called TMJ which made my head hurt and feel like it was splitting in two each time I took a puff so it was easy for me to quit because of how bad it made my head hurt. I am very thankful to have Jaw problems because I am now free of old Nic and he will never be back even now that my jaw is all better. I was a lucky one because watching my husband try to quit makes me know it is a very hard thing to do. I wish you lots of luck and hope to hear from you still while your working.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    You either be more nervous after this, or a lot less nervous, even if I remain somewhat nervous.

    Re: Tinkerbell - Love of a flying grey parrot in Taiwan

    I am so happy that you still did not give up and start smoking again, this is great news. I also am happy to see you back here so we could get a update on Jackie. I wont worry about her because I know you have done everything you could for her and she hopefully will stay in your friends garden and live out her life with him but at the same time outdoors as the free bird she should be. I just love reading your stories and can tell through your words that your a good man Shanlung. Only good people with big hearts can love beasties as much as you do.

    Hope to hear from you when you get back from your next job and take care of yourself.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    Deanna,

    Thank you.

    Perhaps folks here might like this update.

    Which kind of explain why the parting and handover was without ceremony.

    And future reports of Jackie might be made from time to time, even if neither I or my wife shoot the photos.

    Re: Tinkerbell - Love of a flying grey parrot in Taiwan

    Happy Birthday even if its now super late. I missed your last post about Jackie and I am happy she is safe in her new aviary at your friends house. It does sound like perhaps his garden might not be as safe as you thought and since Jackie is use to being around cats she would be easy for a wild cat to catch and eat! If she is in the cage she is safe and I think it best to keep her safe and loved.

    Wow the climb you did on the old road at the Taroka is something I bet you never will forget. Your words and the way your write is something you should be very proud of and that story is one I read with excitement. What a climb but what a memory and I think it is great that they invited you to do the hike with them. I would love to do a hike like that up until the place where the trail wasnt there anymore and you needed to walk on the wood held by tiny wires, no way would I even dare to walk on something like that. You are a brave man and I also learned you are quite fit to be able to climb up such a hard trail and survive.

    Yeah on no cigs! I hope they never come back into your life because you have many more journeys to take in your life.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    Re: Tinkerbell - Love of a flying grey parrot in Taiwan

    It is great to see you here again Shanlung, I have missed your stories while you are away working. I am so happy you havent smoked in almost nine months and hopefully the torture of not being able to smoke has eased up and it is easier for you not to smoke now. GREAT job and just think how much healthier you are without smoking now... if only I could convince my husband to not smoke because it worries me that he does.

    It sounds like Phillip Little is one heck of a strong man to be hurt so badly and still able to be so active that they had to tie him to his bed. I truly am sorry he passed over and it least you and your friend were able to go visit him and he was strong enough to have a good visit with you. Sending you hugs for your loss Shanlung.

    Only you could get a cat to walk around in the water and I loved the pictures of Dommie in the water, silly kitty! I am happy you and your wife were able to spend some time with Riamfada who sounds like he is really happy with his new family. I do have to say I was a little dissappointed you didnt post a picture of Riamfada on your blog though...

    My later reports might be so different that I might well stop posting here.
    You can see that in above last report that I likely not be having birdie or beastie as I go about checkiing different places and countries if they are suitable for me and my wife.

    Without a more permanent place, I cannot have a new birdie, or beastie for that matter.

    I am so happy that you got to go visit and spend lots of quality time with Tinkerbell. She looks great and I bet she was thrilled to see you as well. The pictures of the country and places you visited on this vacation are beautiful and lucky you to be able to have these places to travel too.

    Congratulations of still not smoking and hopefully old Nick lost the battle and you will forever be smoke free.

    I liked all the pictures you shared. Dusty my CAG is fully flighted i am working on recall training with him inside though i can not do it outside because we have so many hawks here. i do take him some places with me in his harness when i think it is safe we also sit on the porch sometimes to since it has a roof on it hawks can not see him. i would like to one day be able to take him with his harness to safe places for him to fly right now he is a very nervous flyer. you have some really nice pics of tinkerbell outside really pretty i hope you continue to share
