    Smile it's been well over a year... maybe a year and a half??

    Hmmmm... where do I start? I wonder if everyone from when I used to come on is still here??

    It's Maya from Hawaii and I fell off the face of all the bird forums I was on. Long story short, the bf I had at the time and I broke up (we were better off as friends), I had gotten a different job (but still in preschool), and got some "me" time (and started spending a lot of time with the guy who is now my bf). In October 2009, Kano had gotten a preening gland infection. He was on antibiotics but the stress was too much for him and he passed in my hands. Eventually I got a new bf, we bought a townhouse, and we've been living together since February. In March, he adopted a Meyer's parrot he named Raptor. We've also been running a fostering/adoption program since we moved into our home - having found great homes for about 15 birds, including an African Grey, conure, lovebirds, and budgies.

    Fast forward to now... Mika is still here and he had just turned nine on September 8. Raptor turns two on September 25. Last month we got Ryu, a baby Turquoise GCC that I finished handfeeding. Our flock is complete with three birds for the time being since we don't want to be overrun in a two-bedroom place - we like to be neat, clean, and organized. Hehe.

    I came back today because I went to my monthly Parrot Club meeting and encountered a Hyacinth for the first time in my life. I took so many pics and the first thought I had was that it'd be so nice to put them up on the forum. I definitely miss posting my monthly photos on here!!

    Anyway, I hope everyone I know is still here... and I look forward to getting to know the new people.

    Really, it has been a year and a half since you were here last?!! Holy crap, time flies...

    Welcome back, it sounds like you have had quite an experience during your time away. I want to see pics of the new birdies too!

    Hi Barb! Yes, time has flown!! As soon as I finish making a new siggy (which I'm working on right now) I'll be sure to post new pictures! I have a lot of catching up to do!

    Hi Maya, It is good to see you here again. I am sorry about Kano I have wondered what happened to you and cant wait to see all your pictures that you posted for us. I bet you have some really nice ones of your fosters and also the big Hyacinth you just got to see.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    Hi Deanna!

    Thank you about Kano. He is definitely missed! I have a framed pic of him on our play gym.

    I'll definitely get to posting pics!! I'm kind of worn out from the day but was able to put together a quick new siggy photo at the very least. I will definitely post pics asap!!

    Thanks! It was something I just slapped together quickly. I'll eventually try to take uniform pics to put together.

    How are you doing? How is everything? How's the forum been doing?

    Ha! I remember you!

    I've been gone for quite a while as well, it's nice to see so many people coming back to TF. I can't wait to see your pics (especially the Hyacinth) and hear all about your new birds.

    Sad about Kano It's so hard when animals pass, but especially in your very hands...

    BarkingPup: Boy, I must have been away for longer than I thought - either that or my memory is terrible (which it is ) - but I'm having a hard time remembering your handle! I've put the pics of the Hyacinth up in the General Talk section. And thank you about Kano. He's definitely missed!

    @Maya Naaaw, I'm more of a lurker anyways. Half the time I rarely posted, just read. I didn't have any memorable animals, either. XD

    Oh, yeah, my Avatar was Z? by the one and only Jhonen Vasquez... don't know if that helps
