||Three years old|

is hand tamed bird and loves to give me kisses all day. She will
actually stick her beak into my mouth if I allow her to. She loves to go to
the grocery store with me and will ride on the cart handle, while saying
"Hello!" to every person she comes across. She enjoys meeting new people.
Ruby has this little plastic beer mug that she will retrieve from her cage
bottom, carry it up to her water bowl, dip it into the water and drink from
it. She will also use this mug to have tea parties with two little girls that I
babysit. She will lay upside down in my arms like a baby and hum Rock-a-bye
Baby. She is a very special member of my family, and I'm not sure she knows
she is not a person. She has a very large vocabulary, and if you try to nap
on our sofa, you will hear every word she knows.
