It’s been 10 weeks since the passing of our parakeet, Skippy. The kids still visit his grave, adorning it with flowers and notes. I’m not sure if they miss Skippy so much as they enjoy the rituals of saying good bye. When I see a shadow in the trees, I’m reminded of our Skippy when he escaped the house in freezing January, flittering around among the wild birds, looking for friends. We thought for sure he’d be eaten, or freeze to death, or never return home. Skippy did come home from that outdoor excursion. Now he’s home for good I suppose. In his own words, he was a pretty bird, a pretty bird, a pretty bird.
