(I saw my reflection in the microwave once before, but I thought it was a good idea to investigate and make sure it wasn't a bad guy hanging around. Once the coast is clear, I'm outta here!)

Celebrating Robert

Hi everyone!

I'll admit that it has been a very long and lonely month without Robert. It has been a difficult time.

Our family is slowly putting back the pieces and learning to live life once more. As we are doing so, it has come to me multiple times to revive this blog. It was something I debated tremendously.

After much thought and consideration, I have decided that this blog, indeed, needs to exist again. Robert didn't let a near fatal attack keep him down, so the best way to honor him is to bring this back to life.

I have 2 more blogs that I had previously set up that will post next Tuesday, and the Tuesday thereafter. From there, I will post weekly blog entries on Tuesdays. They may be reminiscent of him, they may be stories from other people whose lives he touched, or I might discuss my current WIP (work in progress), which is a story about him.

So, thank you all for coming along for this journey for us then and now. Robert will always be in our hearts.

One of two custom made glass pendants with his ashes in them. The other one has his name etched in the glass at the top of the heart.

A coloring that I did of Robert.

A tattoo I got of my Cockatiel, Rameses, and Robert, along with Robert's foot print, and some "abstract" birds.

Good night, sweet Robert. We all love an miss you so very much!

Hi, I'm Robert!

Hi! My name is Dread Pirate Roberts, but you can call me Robert for short.

I'm a baby Lovebird. I hatched on June 28, 2015.

On August 13, one of my human mommies (Mamma Vicki) had just finished feeding my siblings and I when one of the dogs jumped on her, and got me. She saved me, but I went into shock. My other human mommy, Mamma Lauren, brought me to the family vet (Doctor Z). She said my heart was beating nice and strong, and I was breathing well. So Mamma Lauren took me home, and watched me carefully. Even just a few hours later, I was feeling much better.

As a result of the "encounter," I kept my right eye shut most of the time, so Mamma Lauren said I looked like a Pirate. She named me Dread Pirate Roberts after a pirate in one of her favorite movies (Princess Bride). I can open my eye, but it's still fun to play Pirate every once in a while.

I do have some brain damage from it, but it doesn't bother me. I'm smaller than my siblings, and I'm slower in developing (feathers, coordination, etc.). It's okay, though. My human mommies give me that much more love and attention.

So that's a little about me. Be prepared for lots of pictures, videos and stories as I grow up. So come along, matey. Let's sail the seven seas! ;)
