It's a landmark spooky birthday today!

Recommended Posts

I can't believe my little baby grey is 10 years old today.  We always joke that GreycieMae replaced my daughter, because I got Greycie when I was having a real hard time with empty-nest syndrome before my daughter was about to fledge.  I've become so attached to my Grey that I can't imagine life without her.  It used to drive my wife nuts the bond I have with my Grey but then Huey came into our lives and now he's head-over-talons for her and they have as strong a bond or more.  Huey gets a little obsessive-compulsive over my wife 😁.   

Some pics of the birthday girl:

Greycie the baby.  Pics from the care sheet that was delivered with the bundle of feathers.  She was originally named 'Mystery':



The day she came home, look at those adorable grey baby eyes



A copy of the flyer I wall-papered the town with when my idiot sister-in-law left three doors open in our house and let Greycie fly out.  I think Greycie was only a year or two old at this point.   One of the worst days of my life.  I had the strangest dream the night after her first day missing.  I dreamed very lucid that she was sitting on a pipe fence somewhere calling to me from the light at the end of a dark tunnel, very similar to what people who return from near-death describe.  It disturbed me to no end and I don't know if I could have lived it down if we didn't finally locate her at the end of day 2.  We finally found her in the dark sitting in a tree alongside a bicycle path that I regularly took her on.   She heard our voices and started calling to us just like I had dreamt.  It was at the end of a very long second-day of searching for her.  I get goose-bumps just re-living the ordeal in my head writing about it.



And some pics from this morning.   Not sure she was ready for the smothering she got.  She's like my wife, hard to roost out of bed.  P.S.   she sleeps on a ladder right next to my side of the bed.  Every single night she coo's to me in the dark.  She is the absolute sweetest thing ever.






She regularly sits with me in my office as I work.  She wouldn't have it any other way. Huey in the background on his 'office' perch.



Greycie just getting up.  Sometimes I swear you can see the bags under her eyes 😆



Before her got her makeup on and her hair did.  🤣

Happy gotcha day, GreycieMae! She certainly hit the jackpot when she found her way into your heart and home.

I never knew that you had briefly lost her. Having had a similar experience with my Pineapple GCC I, too, know what it's like to have a bird fly out. Fortunately for us both our littles were found.

You have a very funny, but sweet relationship with your baby. I've thoroughly enjoyed reading about Greycie and your other fids over the years.
