Back to Normal… almost

Bubbles 2019It’s officially the 2020’s and Sherri and the birdies are trying to tie a neat little bow on the Christmas just past and return to some degree of normalcy to begin the new decade.

But alas, normalcy is hard to achieve, especially after a couple of weeks of rushing around, decorating, wrapping and then opening presents, and the prep and clean ups from big dinners and visitors.

How do you and your flock return to your ‘normal’ after the holiday season?  Catch up with Zack and Bubbles here to find out how they’re trying to resume their routines after a festive but hectic Christmas.

Unconventional Traditions

Whether it be decorations, lights, food, television shows or music, we all have Christmas traditions that are near and dear to us.  Some of these traditions change, fade with time, or get updated as years go by.  Our feathered companions are an important part of Christmas festivities and time-honored traditions and are often keen to participate in traditions.

Sherri’s December Feathered Frenzy article will surely make every reader reminisce about Christmas’ past, and how their birdies respond to those treasured traditions.

A little early, but please join Sherri and family in wishing Zack a very Happy 20th birthday on December 31st!
