Thanks for the History lesson. Long ago as a young child my parents gave me a little book Called Little Black Sambo. I loved the book and was so very glad that in the end Little Black Sambo was saved from the Tigers by their overwhelming greed that turned them into Tiger butter. History tells us that Black people were angered by the book and also Uncle Remus Tales, that I also love, I can see tar baby in my mind still.On the net now are Comments about the terrible memory of little Black Sambo. For me as a child ,all I knew was a wonderful story. My parents never taught me that black people were bad in any way and I grew up through the race riots still remembeirng that tigers making tiger butter was a comment, that when we go too fast at anything the result will be tiger butter or self destruction and that little Black Sambo was a hero to have outsmarted the tigers.

This brings me to a recent realization that the history of the life and times of an author is integral to the full understanding of the Author's purpose in producing a literary or pictorial work for his/her fellow man to
contemplate. I am now compiling a list of works for gifts to give my young niece. including Little Black Sambo. It will be interesting to know what she
will take away from the experience of reading this little book. I researched the net and found that many of the little books I so loved as a child are still available and some are even available in the same little books I read, having been lovingly cared for. I , however, confess that I loved my little books so much that they became, most of them, "Velvateen Rabbits." Though some still exist, as they were found in my mothers attic when she passed on.

This is a wonderful post that should encourage /send us older folks on a mission into our childhood for BUBBLES. Many Blessings, Jo Ann

Thanks Jo Ann! I know the idea of "History" sends some straight into a coma () but this is interesting, isn't it? And not so long ago either. I can remember the bubbles ad for Pears soap appearing all over the place.

Hollen! I implore you and all family members to read and digest the Bubbles story before making any vital (I repeat, Vital, Therm! ) decision about your budgie's name... Much too important not to!

You guys are awesome! JoAnn, thank you for that detailed post about the products you use- you saved me a lot of research and probably another thread asking about supplements! At the bird show, I saw the Herb Salad and picked it up....and put it down....and picked it back up....but ended up not getting it until I could see if you or another wise budgie mentor had mentioned it.

Ann, I loved your link! As Juliet said, "What's in a name?" Well, quite a bit if you are Bubbles! I agree, it is vital to make the right choice here. Alex feels confident that he is a Bubbles, and if so we must responsibly educate Bubbles of the noble heritage his name carries! And if any other birdie casts aspersions at Bubbles the- to be determined-, they will have to deal with his pink featherless flock as well!
I'm with you JoAnn- can't get enough history over here. The older I get, the more fascinated I become! I read those books you mentioned as a child as well, and I have tapes of my father reading me Brer Rabbit when I was very little, so I could follow along with my little finger when he was out of town and couldn't read to me. My mother preferred The Velveteen Rabbit, but I confess that one actually horrified me. Poor unloved toys that were burned!
Therm, I got so tickled at my husband. It was very hard to tell whose masculinity was threatened there- I'm pretty sure the bird would love to be called Bubbles! It's not like I will make him a t-shirt with a picture of a budgie and the phrase "My Budgie's name is Bubbles" on it. Although I would happily wear that shirt. Luckily we've all been laughing so hard, I think the naming tension has been defused!

Glad we are keeping you amused . Until the big arrival day, budgie will be known as Bubbles-the-TBA (to be announced...)

I was suddenly stung into silence by your memory, Jo Ann, of Little Black Sambo! My own best favourite book too when I was small. I can see the pictures now in my head, clear as day, including that ring of melted butter. And then to read that it was still available !! I've been straight onto Amazon, found the exact same copy I had, & it'll arrive tomorrow. Can't believe I will see and handle it again.

So sad that it had to become a victim of correctness at that time, rather than just the charming simple story it still is. The reviews of the book show just how much it was loved.

It is amazing to see those wonderful little books from long ago. It really does
transport one back in time. How interesting that these titles reflect the thought patterns-belief systems of our world at that time.
Blessings, Jo Ann
