    They are fun but very demanding pets. You have to socialize with them or they misbehave and can even get sick. They will imitate soulds they hear often like that grown middle age people make when they bend over, one of my favorites. Yes he does it when I bend over. Ours starts saying "one...one...one" when the kids start fighting. We discipline our parrot by putting him in timeout for 10 minutes. As soon as we start walking him to his cage he starts saying, "naughty, naughty, bad,..." and as soon as he's in his cage he starts making the alarm sound. He'll fly to my wife and daughters and say, "Do you want a kiss?" And when they pucker their lips he says, "mmmmaaaa". Anyway like I said, they're fun pets but a lot of work. We've had pet sitters quit on us. They sleep 12 hours a day but make almost continuous noise the other 12.

    Very intelligent indeed. Next time hire a pet sitter who works night shifts at a prison.
    I love crows and ravens and feed them everyday. Loud noisy birds but they recognize me and know I'm going to feed them . At one place I lived at they would show up when I arrived home and sometimes even sit on the deck and look in the window .
    Theres one at my present house that makes the strangest sound after I give him food . When he arrives he sits in the same place , same tree and waits for me . Wonderful how humans and wild animals can interact seamlessly sometimes .

    Razor - Gillette 1918 Old Type
    Blade - [​IMG] (3)
    Soap - Stirling Iced Pineapple
    Brush - @Jayaruh #54
    Post - Alum

    What a beautiful Monday! Got all the way up to 20 F today so it was tempting to head to the beach! When shaving time rolled around I realized it was also Menthol Monday - so out came the Iced Pineapple. Temperature at the time of the shave? 18 F. Even better to get a nice heavy menthol soap going. The scent of this one, though, more than makes up for any extra chill. Mmmmm, mmmmmm good!

    The 1918 with Rapira did an easy three pass BBS with only one tiny nick. Not sure what happened but I suspect a momentary lapse of angle got me on the jawline, right side by my chin. Didn't really show blood. Just a tiny red dot that burned like fire with the otherwise quiet alum. That certainly doesn't take away from this shave. It just proves that the 1918 can bite when you least expect it. Hope you had a great start to your week. Happy Tuesday!
