This month’s book is Andy Gets the Blame by Freda M. Hurt.Ten year old Andy wants to buy her Aunty Loo a blue budgerigar for Christmas. But she hasn’t enough money. Each of Andy’s schemes to earn the 21 shillings for a budgie end in disaster. The worst happens when she is accused of stealing a budgie from an aviary. Will Andy be able to clear her name and give her aunt the most wonderful Christmas gift ever?Cooper loved this book. She thought the story was charming and was pleased that it had a happy ending. Someone who would worry and plan as much as Andy did for a budgie would probably make a great budgie slave – er, owner. Cooper particularly liked that the coveted budgie was blue.

Emmy and Felix finally moved into the big cage. Felix pals around with Gordie, but is a little standoffish with the others. I think Emmy wanted to be alpha female, but Lera shut that down pretty quickly. Both are doing well and seem to enjoy being with the flock. And I enjoy having only one cage to clean : ).
Meet Bert and Ernie!Bert and Ernie live in Minnesota with Karon.At the window, their favorite spot to sit and these cute little faces greet me everyday when I get home from work. Ernie sitting by the door in the morning, he is always the first one out of the cage.Bert by the bells-his favorite napping spot. Preening on the top of the cage after our Sunday bath, just to make sure the feathers go everywhere! Ernie chewing the shoelace on the cage, for a boy he loves to chew on things! These two would be lost without each other! They make me laugh everyday and for as messy as they are, they give us 10 times the joy.
