A Quick Update

by Tammy on January 17, 2019

After a very long day for Bubo, he finally made it home safely. He was checked into the airport at 7:15 this morning and we didn’t get home until nearly 6:30 tonight, so he was in his carrier for about twelve hours. When I opened the door, he was not eager to come out, but Avery was very eager to meet him, so I pried him out of the carrier and he and Avery, after a slight skirmish at first, started bonding immediately after that. Avery kissed and preened him and Bubo started reciprocating after a few minutes. After awhile, I gave Avery a Nutriberry and he flew off to eat it, and Bubo followed him. Bu is not a great flier yet, but he did make it to where Avery was and sat next to him. I held a Nutriberry for him to eat, and he took a few bites. By that time it was getting pretty late, so I put them to bed. I heard them talking to each for about twenty minutes, but now all is quiet.

I am going to call it a night myself in just a few minutes, but I will leave you with a picture and update again after Bu has had a few days to settle in.

What a Year!

December 31, 2018

I have spent the past hour or so reading through old posts from right before and after our move. I am thankful that I have documented everything here, although there is so much that did not get recorded. Still, I can transport myself back to that time and remember what I was thinking and feeling, […]

Merry Belated Christmas and Happy New Year

December 26, 2018

I hope y’all had a very merry Christmas! It’s hard to believe that the New Year is just one week away. I was thinking back on this year this morning and I realized that this is the first year in many that I have not said I will be glad when it is over. Between […]
