It’s not just me

Alan says he is surprised at how much he misses Archimedes. Just got through putting groceries away, and we used to have Archimedes as a cheering section. Squawking and bouncing on his perch as we worked.  It’s just so quiet.

Odd thing happened this morning, though. A wild Lorikeet landed in the yard… it started calling, then waiting. and called again. Flew off after a few minutes. I’m wondering if it was Archimedes ‘chat buddy’.

People who don’t have pets, or don’t like them, don’t understand that it’s not “just an animal”. They become part of your life, and you do love and care for them.  And when they are gone, especially because of a stupid accident, it hurts a lot.  As childish as this reads, I want him back.  Logically, I know that isn’t possible.
