How is it that a parrot can get an Artist-in-Residence and I can’t?  

WANTED: Paper doilies, coloured card, etc. for artistic parrot-
Bizarre one this, but our parrot Doris has been invited to attend as Artist-in-Residence at the Flatlake arts festival in Ireland in two weeks’ time. I’m looking for plain-coloured craft-type card or paper – and especially white or coloured paper doilies – anything without printing ink that she can use to create pecktures or other mixed-media artworks. Doilies are proving hardest to track down. (Seehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8Xtjj09HM0for short film,’Doris the Painting Parrot’, featuring her with actor-director Ken Campbell, her previous owner.)

I know your first instinct once you read this post is to laugh.  I must admit we had hearty giggle or two.  But let’s see this for what it really is.  It’s a cry for help. Freakcycle to the rescue.

WANTED: Any Parrot -PLEASE READ

I would like to have a parrot. Any size or color will do. I will love

it no matter what. Willing to exchange husband if necessary. He is

good at Playstation and couch warming. Squawks but is learning

commands.

Freakcycle’s gonna play matchmaker for a sec.  No, we aren’t going to find a parrot for this lady.  Parrots are a dime-a-dozen on Freecycle, probably because they live forever. Husbands are rarely offered, probably because they are rare and often delightful, right ladies?  She needs one of our “At Your Service” connections to remind her of that so we found a little bit of inspiration in the form of a plaque.

Dear lady, if you are reading this blog, take a moment and heed our advice.  These few and precious words will bring back all the reasons you married your sweet, little Playstation-playing couch potato.

OFFER: plaque-4 x 6″ gold-tone frame.  Calligraphy quote:

“How blessed I am … how blessed I’ve been … you’re not only my husband … you’re my best friend.”

Has some dried flowers inside the frame too. I still love my husband, it’s just the frame that doesn’t go anymore!

Please let me know when you’d like to pick up in your response.
