Travels with Pablo: The End of No-Nos

Things I can do now that Pablo is gone:

   I can wear what I want, when I want, without a certain parrot pitching a fit because it thinks I’m leaving the house.

Temper, temper!

    I can talk on the phone and not have to go to another room or outside to avoid a certain parrot screaming in jealousy because I’m talking with someone else.

    I can have visitors and talk with them without a certain jealous parrot screaming at us to shut up.

    I can eat chocolate and not have to hide it from a certain parrot.

    I can watch TV in peace and not have to scratch a certain parrot’s head constantly.

    I can go days and not have to clean the house of feathers, feathers, feathers everywhere.

Things I can’t do now that Pablo is gone:

            Get a goodnight kiss from a sweet little green parrot named Pablo.


  1. I'm sure you are going to miss him. Losing a pet for so many years is devastating. Even though you have so many newfound freedoms you still miss him. You will always have him in your thoughts.

  2. Yes, there are freedoms ... but Oh, how you must miss those good night kisses! Sigh. Hugs, if those help! Patti

  3. I cannot imagine Pablo being gone. To the best of my memory, Pablo has ALWAYS been in your life. I thought he had many more years in his probable life span. I am stunned at him being gone. STUNNED. I cannot believe it. Words fail me. I lost a puppy in year 1942 named Beaver and I still remember his loss. His burial in our back yard. So sorry to learn of his passing. With Compassion ..
