About Me

My photo
I love a lot. I wait a lot. I try to find a lot to laugh at. I don't usually have trouble with that. I pray a lot. I'm not always sure who or what I pray to, but I firmly believe that prayer makes a difference. I try not to panic very often. I try to learn something new every day. I spend a lot of time poking my nose into other peoples' bidness via their blogs. I clean up an awful lot of feathers. You can dress me up, but you can't really take me out. I travel a lot when I can find bird sitters and we take them with us when I can't. I drink, prolly to excess, but I rarely get sick because my body is a hostile environment to germs (or maybe no SELF RESPECTING germ would LIVE in my body?) I collect: gnomes, passport stamps, MONEY-preferably US dollars or Euros, red headed womyn and chicks named Stephanie. My Momma taught me many many years ago that girls don't fart, they foosie. She taught me lots of other chit too. Thanks for stopping by-leave me a comment and let me know you were here, feel free to link to me, or email me at jacquelynn.fortner@gmail.com

Cabin Fever

You know what THAT is?-------->>>

THAT is a picture of what we fondly call "kitchen time out."  It is a regular part of our day.

Every morning, after I've cleaned the birds' cages and we've sung the Good Morning Jesus song, I go into the kitchen to chop their fruits and veggies and make coffee.  Invariably, I hear the 'tick tick tick' (talons don't 'do' pitter patter) of little feet trying to sneak up on me, sometimes to ninja gak my toes, sometimes to eat my baseboards, and sometimes just to visit.  For some reason, if I put him on one of the kitchen stools he is content to sit there for HOURS.  I could understand it if he was getting lonely or something, but the kitchen and the living room are really just one room, and not a very big one, at that.  I guess sometimes he just likes a change of scenery.

I think I could use a little of that myself.  It is a gorgeous day, full of promise, and I have been staring out of my picture window long enough.  I am going to go run the motor on my little boat for a few minutes, then I'm going to take the big boat up the river and see if I can catch a few honks from truckers on the interstate.  Don't you just love my ambition?

And yes.  I know.  I said STOOLS.

My pets follow me all around the house, too. It's not like they don't know that part of the house, they just want to be part OF, yanno?

My cat wants to meet your bird. I told him, "You'd get yer ass handed to ya!" He just gave me that cat look . . .
