Budgie Owners - Who Are You?

Recommended Posts

We have so many new members that have joined and we would love for you to get to know us and us know you a little better. I wrote up a standard "Who are You" questionaire feel free to copy and paste, add to it and you only have to answer what you feel comfortable answering.

 

First me:

 

Name: Elly

 

Pets: Merlin the budgie, 3 cats, 2 dogs (1 is a rescued puppymill parent), fish, hermit crabs and of course my kids (are they pets or not :hap:)

 

Favorite Color: depends on what we are talking about...in a car I love black but paint on my walls I love earth tones.

 

Astrological Sign: Virgo

 

Age: over 30 plus group :D

 

Weakness: Tend to be too critical of others at times (part of being a Virgo)

 

Strength: I hope --- helping others

 

Favorite Animal: well I love them all but I just LOVE dogs

 

Favorite T.V. Show: well since I love dogs I love the Dog Whisper I enjoy watching him the most severe issues and I love his dog Daddy the pit bull.

 

Live: in the USA

 

How long have been a BBC member:...:): I think almost 3 years when I got my first budgie Pretty in Sept of 2005. He helped me heal after my dad passed away in August, I think I had a need to love something new and now I am stuck on budgies. Who would think such a little creature could give so much love.

 

Anything else?....I am typically a very quiet, shy person, but with my friends I am very out going, I love honestly even if it hurts :(, I have enjoyed the many friendships that I have made on the forum.
