Wow. Here Is A Giggle For You

I am so very sorry that I have not had a lot of time lately, and have been neglecting my blog. I have really missed all of you and your blogs as well. Work and parenting a nine year old have been insane tasks of late.

I am work now in fact, and I was reading a story that I just had to share with all of you. Before you say it, I am at lunch! The story involves a parrot. I laughed so hard I almost cried on this one.

TOKYO - When Yosuke the parrot flew out of his cage and got lost, he did exactly what he had been taught — recite his name and address to a stranger willing to help.

Police rescued the African grey parrot two weeks ago from a neighbor's roof in the city of Nagareyama, near Tokyo. After spending a night at the station, he was transferred to a nearby veterinary hospital while police searched for clues, local policeman Shinjiro Uemura said.

He kept mum with the cops, but began chatting after a few days with the vet.

"I'm Mr. Yosuke Nakamura," the bird told the veterinarian, according to Uemura. The parrot also provided his full home address, down to the street number, and even entertained the hospital staff by singing songs.

"We checked the address, and what do you know, a Nakamura family really lived there. So we told them we've found Yosuke," Uemura said.

The Nakamura family told police they had been teaching the bird its name and address for about two years.

But Yosuke apparently wasn't keen on opening up to police officials.

"I tried to be friendly and talked to him, but he completely ignored me," Uemura said.

Is that not great? I hope it at least brought you a giggle.
