    Thanks Ellen for the nice words. Tonight was Trick or Treat. Benny Francis went as a parrot, LOL.
    Seriously, though, there was a group of kids all dressed in costumes and masks. Their mom was taking them to the civic park for a Halloween special event. As they were walking through the parking lot, they all wanted to hold Benny Francis. He absolutely loved it! He loved their masks. When they walked out of the parking lot to the sidewalk, we watched them walk away. Benny Francis called loudly to them and gave them big kisses. But they didn't come back to him. He wanted to go with all the kids. It's nice that he's socializing so well.

    I would love to have brought little Smokey Bear outside, but I think he wouldn't have done as well as Benny Francis. So, the poor little tyke had to stay indoors and sing Twinkle Twinkle to Wolfie.

    Awww!!!! That is amazing! I do know that most every parrot I have had over the years...I.e. budgies and cockatiels, love kids and kids voices. That is sooooo neat, and I identify them as kids too! They sure act like them on occasion!!

    When are we going to be able to purchase tickets for Smokey Bear's concert? Is it going to be an indoor / outdoor event? Is Gomer, Barney Fife, Aunt Bee and Opie going to be Smokey's back up singers?

    No, I haven't gotten into any Halloween candy and yes, I guess I am being silly. I just love it when I hear about a fids personality coming to fruition.

    Gee! I wonder if I can contact them. Great idea! If not, there's a lot of kids here that love to sing Twinkle Twinkle with Benny Francis. I'll ask them about being Smokey Bear's backup singers.

    Well, for sure, my Muffin, the budgie, can be a rhythm maker! He tic tocs, just like a clock!!! And my tiel, Penny, can whistle the Mickey Mouse song, and whistle like a cardinal, and also dog whistle and wolf whistle! And he also beats his beak, in perfect rhythm, on his food cup! Perhaps they could be members of the...."Rockin' Tailfeathers Band"!
