Labor Day Parakeets

  1. This is a very insightful, well written piece.
    I had Pretty Petey the Parakeet.
    I saved lots of months of allowance money in the fourth grade to buy him and his cage.
    He escaped the cage.
    Drowned in the toilet.
    But, I didn’t stop, I bought Pretty Petey II. And a mate, Beauty. I bred them. Watched the eggs grow into chicks, and Beauty kill them all, but one, before I stopped her, and couldn’t save the survivor.
    I know, “Why the caged bird sings.”
    And why you shouldn’t cage birds.
