    Today is Benny Francis' First Birdthday

    Hi all,

    Benny Francis is 1 year old today!
    He's talking a heck of a lot. He's doing real well and I wanted everyone to know how happy he is.

    I haven't posted in a while. The owners of the property I manage sold the place and I was told I'd be able to stay on.
    Lo and behold! The new owners gave me 30 days to leave. They already have a relative who's going to manage the place.

    I've been in deep despair, trying to figure out what would happen to me. I lost my home, my job and my income all at once after 14 years here. And, I'm 72 years old. Too old for most jobs.

    But, happy, happy news! One of the potential buyers I showed the property to hired me! I have a new home, a great job and lotst of benefits I never had at this old job. And, in the apartment I'm going to, there's a 'bonus' room. All the people who work at the new place keep saying that's going to be Benny Francis' own room!

    Sorry I haven't been in touch, but I've been going through a lot of stuff, as you can imagine. Anyway, all is going to be great!!
    I'll get back in touch as soon as I settle in to the new job and new home.

    Thank you Ellen! Benny Francis sends you a BIIIGGG KISS for the scritches!

    It was a terrible life challenge, but I kept my focus on the one who matters most and helps us all - Holy Father God. That kept me happy through it all.

    It's so amazing how many people care about me. Times like these you surely find out who is there for you. Not only was it like a miracle the way I got my new home and job, it also was a time of beautiful awareness of who around me is truly my friend. So many people! I never knew how many people love me. WOW! I am truly blessed in these days. So, I gotta think that it's part of God's Plan to help me by giving me this experience. It's time for a change, and it turned out so fabulous!!

    And Benny Francis may have his own room!!

    Happy Birthday, Benny Francis. You got lucky. The relative was ready to move into your place when you caught another break, a job and you have a place to keep Benny Francis with you. You are right, 72 years old is not easy to find a job at that age. Hope you last for years on your new job.

    Thanks, Bill.
    I got so fortunate with this. It's so nice that the staff at the new place is so welcoming to Benny Francis. I was near panic when I first heard that I had to move. Now, I'm on cloud 9. And, as small as the new apartment is, I love it. It has an odd layout, but it's perfect for me and my fids. And if Benny Francis starts getting loud, I'm in the farthest corner of the property where he can get as loud as he wants and not disturb anyone. What would be the absolute best situation in the whole world is if they'd let me take Benny Francis to the office while I work. But, I'm not going to even count on that.

    While I move, Benny Francis and the cockatiels are going to be boarded at the bird store. He can visit his best friend, a cockatoo named Scooter! That's going to be fun for him.

    I totally agree with your reply, Pat! I too have experienced miracles in my life that I know could come from no one but Father God and the Universe. At our age, it is great to know we are special to many who reach out to us in time of life challenges, of which every one of us have on our journey toward God and the heaven where we all will arrive, in His way and time!

    Happy, Happy Spring, Pat! How is your family doing after the terrible experience they had in the fire!


    Yaaay Benny!! I hope you can post pics of his new room!!!

    Thanks for the great well-wishes!
    Regarding my granddaughter and her family, she's doing real well considering. They're waiting for a house to close in another city near Chino. From what she said, a lot of Paradise residents are going there, too.
