We posted "Lost Bird" signs and asked around the neighborhood, but no one came forward to claim him. I have to admit I was relieved because it didn't take very long for us to get attached to him, especially me. We bonded instantaneously.
Crispy had a funny way of chirping every time I sneezed. It was almost as if he was telling me "God Bless You", and that always brought a smile to my face, especially when there was no one else home to acknowledge my sneeze.
He was also a very cheerful bird, regardless of the weather. There were many cloudy days where his singing brought sunshine into our home.
Crispy loved to be scratched right below the neckline, and he especially liked my hair. That's where he usually resided when I would clean out his cage.
We buried Crispy today in a special place in our garden. I will miss him very much, but he left many fond memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life. For that I will be forever grateful.
Thank you for stopping by.
