Larry Bird (budgie)

Larry Bird was our budgie. He was named after the now-retired Boston Celtics basketball player because he was ... well ... green ... and because he was ... well ... a bird, and because my DS (aka GT's very own GreyFoxMini), whose bird he was, and my DH are bigtime basketball fans.


My DH took a lovely picture of him, but I can't find it otherwise I would post it here. Larry was a beautiful green budgie who adored his mirror (heaven help the person who took it down to clean it ... they became the target of major budgie cussing!!) and chirped and twittered so enthusiastically that visitors thought we had a flock of budgies!


Larry ... the silence in the house today is deafening! Everytime we hear a little click or rattle we think it's you cuddling up to your mirror friend! We miss your chirping and twittering, and yes, even your squawking! Thank you for being such an entertaining and musical presence in our lives these past 5+ years. We hope that there are lots of pretty mirrors and only the yummiest seed at the rainbow bridge to welcome you. Watch out for the greyhounds ... there are some that would like to chase fast-moving little birdies like you!


Godspeed Larry! We miss you.
