As we here in the Southern Hemisphere actually get to celebrate Christmas before our Northern cousins It will be Christmas Eve tomorrow.
As I reflect upon the year that was I can't help wonder just where did the year go?
We have welcomed many new members, lost a couple of our TB family for various reasons, and have enjoyed many a picture of some fine feathered friends.
I would like to thank my fellow staff members and Deborah as admin for doing a great job throughout the year, But mostly I wish to thank each and everyone of our amazing members who make TB what it is . The best Budgie Forum around.
I truly hope everybudgie feels safe, happy and loved over the holiday break, for some it will be a time of reflection, others a new beginning, blessings to each and every member and their flock during this special magical time of the year. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE :cl ap:
Happy holidays from Chicago and from Kimchi! Here's some photos of Kimchi's holiday season-- there's our holiday card this year, plus Kimchi looking festive, and "helping" to wrap a present (which is actually a bird toy for my mother's budgie from Santa Bird!)
P.s. please know we didn't leave Kimchi unattended with the Christmas lights, as we know it could be dangerous for him to chew on them-- we took a few pictures and put them away
Noah and I would like to wish all our TB family a wonderful Christmas/Holiday Season. Thank you all for welcoming us here and offering me guidance and support through what has truly been an emotional roller coaster of a year. Best wishes for the year ahead.
Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year to you all.
I'd like to thank the wonderful staff and members of this forum for being so welcoming, friendly and informative with me and helping to make my little Jimmy the healthy, sweet little boy he is today.
You're all wonderful and I look forward to remaining part of this community for years to come. xx
I wish everyone on TB a very very Happy Christmas and a Wonderful New Year. Hoping every person and birdie gets their wishes granted.
2016 is shaping up to be a very exciting year for me. After more than 30 years of living where I do, I am selling up and moving. I am leaving a town of about 10,000 people to go to a lovely little historic town in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales with a population of around 500, not too far from our Nations Capital. Yes all my birds are coming with me and I will build new aviaries for them to live in. I have a short list of about 6 houses but it will depend on how long it takes to sell here. My home here will be going to a developer. There is massive expansion going on in my area and it is getting too built up for my liking. We are losing our country town feel and I want that back. The population in the area has nearly doubled in the last 5 years and that is going to increase rapidly in the next couple of years.
Hope to be celebrating Christmas next year in my new town.
The flock of 14 and I are wishing the Talk Budgies community (forum members and staff included) a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
May this Christmas be bright and cheerful and 2016 be a prosperous and memorable year.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
Niamh, you Luke AND Noah are welcome to visit, only 2 1/2 hours from Sydney. I will have a spare bedroom. And I will be getting Skype when I move. And very occasionally it does snow. Had a meeting yesterday with my Agent so it will be all ahead full in the New Year.
