Message:IT ALL STARTED IN SEPTEMBER 2002,I WAS WALKING PAST MY LOCAL PETSHOP,WHEN SUDDENLY I THOUGHT,WHY NOT TAKE A LOOK TOO SEE WHAT PARROTS THEY HAD.BIG MISTAKE!!!! THERE WERE SO MANY TO CHOOSE FROM.I WAS LEANING AGAINEST A CAGE LOOKING AT A JARDINE PARROT WHEN I FELT A TUGGING AT THE ELBOW OF MY JUMPER.I LOOKED TO MY SIDE TO SEE NOBBY A CHEEKY LOOKING NANDAY.I SAID HELLO AND HE REPLYED WITH A SQUEEK AND NODDING CONSTANTLY.THEN PROMPTLY WENT TO THE FLOOR OF HIS CAGE AND ROLLED ONTO HIS BACK WRESTLING A PEACE OF MILLET TO DEAF.I JUST STOOD THERE FOR AGES,AFTER ABOUT 10 MINUTES OF THIS I WAS HOOKED LINE AND SINKER.BUT THE PROBLEM WAS I DIDN'T HAVE THE MONEY TO BUY HIM SO SHORTLY AFTER I LEFT VERY DEPRESSED.THAT NIGHT I ASKED MY WIFE WHAT SHE THOUGHT ABOUT HAVING A PARROT,HER REPLY WAS DON'T BE SO STUPID THEY MAKE TO MUCH NOISE AND MESS.NO MORE WAS SAID.NEXT DAY AT WORK I KEPT THINKING ABOUT NOBBY,PICKED UP THE PHONEBOOK AND RANG THE NUMBER.I SAID I WANT NOBBY AND I WOULD PICK HIM UP SATURDAY.WHAT HAD I DONE?MY WIFE WILL LEAVE ME FOR THIS.THE DAY CAME AND WE DROVE INTO TOWN, SHE DIDN'T KNOW A THING ABOUT IT.UNTIL I STOPPED OUTSIDE THE PETSHOP.SHE SAID WHAT HAVE YOU STOPPED HERE FOR?I THEN TOLD HER I HAVE BOUGHT A PARROT.NOT BEING A PET LOVER SHE WENT MAD.BUT TAKING NO NOTICE I WENT IN AND PROMPTLY CAME OUT WITH NOBBY THE NANDAY.THE AIR WAS BLUE IF YOU UNDERSTAND!!!WE GOT HOME AND I TOOK NOBBY INTO THE SPARE BEDROOM WHERE I DO ALOT OF WORK PRINT OUT PHOTOS FOR PEOPLE KNOWING HE WOULD HAVE PLENTY OF COMPANY.MY WIFE HARDLY SPOKE TO ME FOR 3DAYS BESIDES SHOUTING ABOUT THE NOISE.THEN ONE DAY I HEARD HER IN THE BEDROOM TALKING TO HIM,SHE WOULDN'T ADMIT IT BUT SHE WAS BEGINNING TO LIKE HIM.THEN AFTER A FEW WEEKS SHE WAS IN THE BEDROOM EVERY TIME SHE WENT UP STAIRS SOMETIMES IN THERE FOR 20MINS OR MORE,I WOULD ASK WHAT SHE WAS DOING AND SHE WOULD REPLY NOTHING!!! SHE WAS HOOKED JUST LIKE ME.MONTHS WENT BY AND WE GOT REALLY CLOSE TO NOBBY BUT MY WIFE WOULD NOT HAVE HIM OUT OF THE CAGE BECAUSE SHE WAS SCARED OF HIM,BUT SHE STILL REALLY LIKED HIM PLAYING WITH HIM TALKING TO HIM AND TEACHING HIM LOTS OF TRICKS.I WAS GLAD THEY WERE GETTING ON SO WELL BUT WISHED SHE WOULD TAKE HIM OUT OF THE CAGE AND PLAY WITH HIM LIKE I DO.NOBBY WOULD COME OUT OF HIS CAGE WHICH I WOULD OPEN AS SOON AS I WENT IN THE ROOM HE WOULD FLY STRAIGHT TO MY SHOULDER AND CUDDLE AGAINEST MY NECK NIBBLING MY EAR AND WHISPERING WORDS AL THE TIME.WE WOULD PLAY FOR HOURS AT A TIME.WHEN WE HAD SOME WARM WEATHER I DECIDED IT WAS TIME TO TAKE HIM OUTSIDE FOR SOME FRESH AIR.OUT WE WENT NOBBY ON MY SHOULDER.HE WOULD FLY AROUND THE GARDEN AND ALWAYS COME BACK WHEN I CALLED HIM.THIS HAPPENED WHENEVER THE WEATHER WAS WARM.MY WIFE HAD NEVER SEEN HIM OUT OF HIS CAGE SO I TOLD HER TO LOOK OUT OF THE WINDOW.SHE WATCHED FOR ABOUT 5MINUTES THEN I GOT NOBBY TO FLY AS NORMAL, HE FLEW OFF UP HIGH AND STARTED TO CIRCLE LIKE NORMAL,THEN JUST AS HE WAS ABOUT TO RETURN TO ME,SOMEONE PUT THEIR LAWNMOWER ON.NOBBY GOT SPOOKED AND DARTED OFF IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION.I THOUGHT HE WILL BE BACK IN A MINUTE SO I KEPT CALLING FOR HIM BUT THERE WAS NOTHING,I PUT HIS CAGE OUT ON THE LAWN HOPING HE WOULD COME BACK AND GET IN HIS CAGE THAT HE LOVED SO MUCH.HOURS WENT BY, NOBBY HADN'T RETURNED I KEPT ON CALLING FOR HIM UNTIL IT WAS PITCH BLACK OUTSIDE.I LEFT HIS CAGE OPEN OUTSIDE ON LAWN OVERNIGHT INCASE HE CAME BACK EARLY IN THE MORNING,BUT HE DID'NT RETURN.IT HAS BEEN 5 DAYS NOW AND I FEAR HE IS LOST FOREVER!!!! I LOVE NOBBY TO BITS AND JUST WANT HIM BACK, THE HOUSE IS NOT THE SAME ANYMORE I MISS HIM BADLY AND HOPE HE RETURNS SOON. IF ANYONE FINDS NOBBY I WOULD GLADLY PAY A REWARD FOR HIS RETURN YOU CAN CONTACT ME AT MY EMAIL ADDRESS ANDYTURN@BTINTERNET.COM THANKYOU FOR READING ABOUT THE BEST 6 MONTHS OF MY LIFE, GOD I MISS HIM.YOURS HOPEFULLY ANDY.
