My internet went out earlier this week, due to the wind knocking branches off of my pear tree that took down my phone line. It took a couple of days for the service to be restored.
When the technician got here, as soon as he stepped inside my house, Max yelled, "Hello!!!" The technician replied, "Hello!" -- it turns out he has a grey and a cockatiel.
Max has just started enthusiastically greeting everyone who enters our home. She's also decided that she wants to do her tricks for everyone; luckily this guy was interested (and it only takes a minute to run through them) -- she was so happy for an audience!
