Thank you, everyone. It is really good to *see* all of you again.
Lord Snot, that's a close up of Ziggy, one of my blue and gold macaws. He was preening under his wing when I took the picture. We adopted him from rescue because my ex was set on having a macaw. Then he turned out to be scared of him - Ziggy was a bit of a handful for the first year or so - he had had a rough life. So Ziggy ended up bonding to me instead of my ex. And it turns out that he is the love of my life.
