This is the parakeet I mentioned in my bio. This photo is me attempting to bond with that stupid bird, but honestly it never happened. It could never seem to get far enough away from me, probably because it knew I really didn't like it. Once mom and dad got drunk and took it out of it's cage, thinking they were going to give it a bath in the kitchen sink... to this day they don't believe me when I tell them the story.
I don't know why, but somehow scanned photos come out crappy on this blogsite. I believe this photo was taken in 1971 (if you can make it out).
