This is a picture of me, uncharacteristicly scruffy and unshaven (yeah right) and my insane Budgerigar "Crusher". He was hand reared and sadly very badly wing clipped so he cant fly at all (I know the feeling). I have never owned a pet bird before and hd no idea how goofy and clever they can be. When put near a pile of Brussels Sprout he will roll and cavort with them in such a way as you have to dissolve in laughter.
I just got hired by a company that does mining surveys as a technician. The money is good and its 1 week off 2 weeks on which will give me good workshop time. Might see some progress
