I believe the spangle won best spangle, but the blue was best blue and champion bird.

Thank you very much every one, I am just over the moon. I am on a high.

 

I took 2 birds a blue (sky blue) and a spangle (light green).

I got 1st with both birds.

The sky blue went onto win best bird in show.

 

Yes Macka I am not happy because after my wins I relised I have the points

to go up to Open and I wanted to stay in Intermediate for another 2 years.

I only got to spend one year in Intermediate . sad.

 

Lucky I only took 2 birds.

 

What so funny Sheppard and Flanigan told me at the end of the show that they were

coming to my place to buy birds, lol. I said yeah sure, I think they were joking. lol

But I did beat them today in the blue class.

 

Kaz Can i buy my white boy back my boy is very sick. sad. just joking though

Huge effort, well done.

 

Blows the whole idea that you need to have fistfuls of cash to be successful. You are a great advertisement for our hobby (not fancy). I am sure that with the birds you are producing yoiu will keep doing well.

 

Congratulations Julie.

Yes Kaz he was wrapped, he said he couldn't believe I rang back and said I won best bird in Show.

Oh and we were sitting out side tonight talking and he said He has been taking a bit of notice of the birds in teh last week and he he knows what I mean about it's hard to cull because there are a lot of good birds in the aviary and some really top cocks.

So he now understand I need to keep a few more than normal, sort of anyway. lol

Oh No Matty Welchman is calling me Splatty now. That makes Chookie and Mattie, lol I guess I'm their Splatty now.lol

 

Thank you every one that has congratulated me , I have had everyone at the shield congratulate me today except for one couple, there is a reason for that though.

But really every one has being so nice.

Thank you Kevin for taking me to the shield and being very kind to me because I didn't want to go and I asked him to take my birds and I was staying home. But he insisted on me going because he said today he new I would do well with blue and to think I was going to scratch the blue yesterday too.

 

I have to admit he got lost coming home and we headed for Bendigo, so it took a lot longer to get home than it should of.

 

The best thing is that Kevin has offered to take me to more show in Melbourne next year if I wish to go, so I thought that was lovely of him.

 

And thank you Gb for a great day and lunch.I did wave good bye and yell out as we drove out the gate but you were to busy yakking to notice. lol

 

:D about time Julie ...eh ? :D

 

 

Ha ha it won't last long, I have to admit they are noisy little things and that is what annoys him the most, you can't here yourself think through the day they are so loud. lol.
