It's been nerve-wracking waiting to get everything settled, but tomorrow I will begin my new position as interim Parrot Garden manager. If everything works out, the position will become permanent in 45 days. I am feeling very humble and thankful that Best Friends believes in me enough to give me this chance.

Now.....you all need to come visit me! You should all get a chance to see one of the premier (if not the premier) parrot sanctuaries in the country! And...I do have an extra room.

Jacque do you mind the sound of motorcycles? LOL I love riding in that area and would love to visit you and Best Friends!
Best Biker roads in the country through out that area!
Best of luck tomorrow, even though you don't need it! You'll be a star employee there by the end of the week!!

Well hopefully we will be able to do another trip out that way and come to visit! We've been to southern Utah four times now and just can't get enough of it!! Especially Zion and Bryce!

I hope we can make it out there some day!
It's about a 10 hour drive for us, maybe I can convince DH that a road trip would be fun? =)

Congratulations on your new assignment!

So much to learn...so little time! I have 45 days to prove I have what it takes. Saving grace: really knowledgable and incredible staff! I had a wonderful first day getting reaquainted with some of the birds, learning what the long-term vision of the department is, and just trying to get back in the flow of things. So many things have changed since last November. The Amazons and Cockatoos have gotten their own flights since I've been gone (complete with misters...that makes for some very happy birds!) Met some great new birds. Was very happy with the progress some of the birds have made, and saddened by some that haven't had as easy a time. And I got to say goodbye to a little girl who left for her forever home in the morning. This is the best decision I ever made!

You know I really don't like travelling but I really want to visit Best Friends. One of these days, I'm going to do it. It would be a perfect vacation as far as I'm concerned.

And I have no doubt that you shall do an excellent job!!!

In the meantime, I shall live vicariously through you, Jacque!!! LOL

Is my room ready? LOL

And because of my hot flashes, could you put ice cubes in the hot tub for me? LOL

Jacque, can you find out more information about those misters? That would make a nice gift for a friend.

Best Friends just sounds like a wonderful place! You are indeed very fortunate to be able to spend your time helping all those wonderful angels.

And they are so very lucky to have someone like you Jacque!

Bev - I'll ask about the misters this morning. They are pretty large and seem to involve a lot of pvc piping, so it may have been something they built themselves. But I'll see if I can talk Al out of the plans for you!

And we enjoy having her here! (Yes, I still log in from time to time smile )

We'll try not to make life Too (pun intended) difficult!
