I can't believe that Janet was able to keep from announcing this to everyone in the world...but tomorrow she is flying to Las Vegas where Charlie and I will meet her. Then I'll say goodbye to a wonderful bird and Janet will take home her new family member. I am so happy that this very special soul has an opportunity to have a home with someone who acccepts her multilation issues and is willing to work with her. There is no one else in the world that I would rather she went home with. Thank you Janet!

I have many tears of joy for Janet and Charlie.I am sure that once Charlie finds her place in the flock it will be just what she needed.Congratulations to Janet and her Flock.

Sorry that you are having to part with such a sweet spirit at Best Friends.I am glad she has found a home and there will be room for another for saving in the future.

Yeah for Charlie, so happy for her and Janet. I am sure everyone will miss her at best friends, her and King O looked so sweet together. My favorite picture is of them with their heads touching.

I am excited beyond belief! Discussions of the possibility of my adopting Charlie has been ongoing for 6 months now. Thanks for all the kind/supportive replies and a huge thank you to Best Friends, with a very special thanks to Jacque and Rick.

Jacque, I will see you bright and early tomorrow morning!!

This is one of the highlights of 2011!! Both of you are very, very fortunate. A new saga in the Howell's flock I won't want to miss a chapter!! (Hope to see footage of the introductions.)

Wow, I skip a day checking the boards and look what AMAZING news I have missed!! I am so very happy for sweet Charlie and for Janet!! No one is better suited to Charlie's needs than Janet - a true match made in heaven! Safe travels and please post pics, Jacque, of their meeting if you can. I can't wait to hear how Miss Noelle and the rest of Janet's flock react to Charlie.

That is wonderful news, I bet King O will miss her, the pics of them together are just TOO precious. How great for Charlie to get to join your flock. This is a match made in heaven, you have done so wonderful with Noelle. Congrats Janet, looking forward to an update.

Charlie traveled extremely well to Las Vegas and has been turned over to Janet, safe and sound. We spent some time together in a shady grassy area outside of the airport, letting Janet get to know charlie. Charlie was more interested in trying to catch flies than socializing, but it all went very well. I did get pictures on my i-phone, and will post them later this evening.

Janet and Charlie are still traveling home, but I have no doubt this will be a wonderful thing for both of them.

And it was absolutely wonderful spending a hour with someone I've come to know so well through this board, email and phone calls.
