I again want to thank everyone for their warm welcome. And BB, I love that bird. Bruno and I are buddies already. Hyacinths are sweet, sweet birds. Expensive too. That I can remember for sure, I had an article in the December of 1995 issue, and two more over the next couple of years, been a long time. That little dog pictured with me in the avatar, he is a little rescue job I brought home from Europe. True story, he was named Quillo (an Andalusian word for boy) by a Spanish girl named Macarena. LOL... thanks and good luck everybody.
