A little bit of Magic in my life!


A little bit of Magic in my life!

by Jane Clark

I have only ever had dogs, cats, rats and even a ferret, as life companions – all wonderful, but when my last dog died I felt I could not replace him at all with another dog.  As I was coming up to retirement and living on my own I did feel a strong need to acquire another presence in the house, a companion to have fun with, for my twilight years.

Years ago we inherited a family budgie, a sweet little chap who used to watch me brush my teeth in the morning, when I was very young.  I must admit I did enjoy letting him out to frolic about in the living room, however, I didn't want another budgie, nor a cockatiel.  Si, I was beginning to think parrots!

It was the wild birds outside that tuned me into birds really.  They helped me through a rough patch in life by their constant communication and they didn't seem a bit perturbed by my presence in the garden.  When the food ran out, they would let me know by fluttering about at the window or perch on a garden chair and ask for attention.  They would also certainly let me know when a predator had arrived in my tranquil garden.
