I guess I have taken a break. I didn't know I had taken a break but I haven't posted for a long time. I have no idea why. I have no reason, no excuse.

I have done a few cards lately. I finished my trade cards for the Zentangle II trade on Wetcanvas. I mailed all the cards either Saturday or Friday. So far I haven't heard if any have been received.

My nephew and his fiance (now wife) had their wedding yesterday at the beach. It was a very wet wedding. Rained all day. They did the ceremony in the rain as there were no other alternatives. No place inside where they booked it large enough. They did buy awnings to put up over the tables but everyone still got very wet. But at least it is over and they can get on with their lives.

When I went into my bedroom tonight where my birds are, I found my parakeet dead in the bottom of the cage. Poor Freebie. It appeared that her neck was broken. I have had her for a couple years. I know she had a good home her last couple years and enjoyed listening and talking to the birds outside when I would open the window. That's just about the only time you heard her get loud. I will miss that happy sound. But just one more loss among so many this year.

Goodbye my sweet little bird.

sorry to hear about your parrot. I had birds in my youth too, and unlike other pets, they all died without a warning. Hope to see you drawing again soon.

So sad about Freebie. Losing them is the tough part of pet ownership isn't it
