Welcome all. It has been a tremendous year here at Talk Budgies. We have had lots of new members and lots of regulars sharing stories about our budgies and budgie care and sharing lots of pictures and sharing memories.
Each month we have chosen a "Member of the month" for someone special who stood out among all the wonderful people here with their assistance, sharing and kindness.
As we have done with the "Budgie of the Month", and chosen a "Budgie of the year", we have decided to do the same for the "Member of the month", and choose a "Member of the Year".
This past year we had 12 wonderful and deserving Members of the Month.
With a lot of hard work and perserverance we have whittled it down to one lucky and VERY deserving member.
This member has been very active with the forum each and every month. assisting others with their budgie questions. Her sharing of knowledge and genuine care of our budgies, as well as her genuine caring of all of us members can be seen in all the posts she makes.
Whether she is sharing a story about home or a story about her budgies she captivates us all. Her sharing of her budgie experiences helps a lot of us when we need assistance or reassurance.
She is always here to comfort us when we have losses and lend a kind word
Her sharing of recipes always gets a huge following.
OPPS! Did that just give it away?
