No. 0     Original Topic:  A Newly Married couple...   
By:  BorrowedAngel52   Gender: F   Age: 64   on  Feb 7, 2017 at 12:43 AM   Viewed 3373 times     
The wife said to her husband, "honey", I have always wanting a "singing bird." Do you think we can afford one? He said sure, lets go see what they have at the pet shop. Off they went.... So, as they walked in the pet shop there to greet them was the owner. May I help you? Yes, the wife says. I am looking for a bird that can "sing". The owner said... I have "one left!" And took the couple over to the cage to see the bird. It was singing so beautifully. The wife fell in love. Right away the wife said yes honey lets get it! Happily! Okay Sir, we will take it, and all that we will need to care for this bird. No problem. The owner gathered all that they would need, to take the bird home, and give it a good life. They got the bird home as night time began to fall. They set the cage in a cozy spot in the living room. Covered up the bird cage, and off to bed they had gone as morning would come early. Early morning the wife gets up so excited, and goes straight to the cage to uncover their new bird. It then began to sing so beautiful. So, the wife just stood there listening, as she noticed it was only standing on one leg. She reached in the cage to hold the bird, and was shocked to find it only had ONE LEG. She ran to the bedroom. Honey, Honey, wake up this bird we bought only has "one leg!" We need to take it back! I want a bird that has two legs. Okay, he quickly got dressed and off to the pet shop they went. As they walked in with the bird in the cage the owner greeted them. Can I help you? Yes, Sir the woman said very upset. Listen, you sold us a bird with only "ONE LEG." Well Mrs. did you ask for a bird that can SING, OR did you ask for a bird that can DANCE???:laugh:--------------I thought for all of you folks who love music, as I do could appreciate this cute story! God Bless ya!:smile:

Very funny. Loved that one!

It also demonstrates that we often expect too much. Don't you think so?

So glad that someone did appreciate that! Yes, we tend to be so spoiled today in time. I sure have learned a lot in my years. I appreciate everything. I know what it is too have nothing, and I know what it is to have so many Blessings you cannot count!:smile: Things in this life do not always happen as we expect for sure and some times we must take the good with the bad. That's what I call "life"! Awe, I look at things as this... enjoy what you been blessed with, and expect nothing yet enjoy everything!:smile: Thanks for asking. God bless you.

She should've kept the bird.

It could still sing. It still needed a home, and had she and her hubby kept it would have rewarded them with many more days and nights of crooning them.

Jade, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY"! I just came on after a busy day, so sorry I missed saying this much earlier in the day! Hope you had a good one! Yes, I do agree about the bird! The couple should have keep it, and also got another one when ever they could...I would have, for sure! Its possible the other bird then could have taught it to dance with just one leg!:party::hug::smile: God Love and Bless you!

Thanks !!!!

If I had to choose between a singing bird or a dancing bird, hmm, would go with the singing one lolol.

My dad had a pet canary when we were kids that he loved for its singing.

Until one day we came home to find the cat loved the bird more for its meat. With the cage on the floor from the ceiling where it had been, and only a couple feathers left where the bird used to be, that was the end of my cat where dad was concerned.

Out of anger he loaded her up with her 3-4 kittens, and I had to carry the box riding alongside him to the mountains near our home. As punishment, he turned her and her kittens loose in the mountains, never to be seen again.

I honestly believe dad was punishing me too for Muffy eating his pet canary. It wasn't like I had anything to do with it. I'd had Muffy from a kitten herself. She was just being a cat, doing what cats do naturally. The bird was easy prey for her wanton eyes lol.

Years later dad asked me to forgive him for anything he'd done in the past, in the months leading up to his death.

I figured he may have included the corporal punishment for Muffy and her kittens in that blanket apology.

I've forgiven dad, but never got over losing Muffy that way.

Hi B.A. That was a funny story. Thank you. I have had several talking Parakeets, And I am thinking about getting another baby bird and teach it to talk, A dancing bird would be fun, but I would prefer one that

could sing old time country Gospel, Songs like "The old Rugged Cross" and "Amazing Grace" I did see one Parrot on a Tv. program that sang, "I left my heart in San Francisco, and did a pretty good job of it too.

That was an interesting but sad story Jade, It reminded me of a story my first wife told me, Her mother had a talking Parakeet, That kept

saying, "The cat's gonna get me" Then one day her mother came home from shopping, The cat had turned over the cage and all that was left of the bird was feathers.


Well, I see I sent the same message twice, You don't suppose I am getting old do you?

Ohhhh Jade, so sorry that your dad got upset with you, and took it out on you, and Muffy! I suppose this happens in many of homes, no matter what the circumstance is. It happened in my original home too! You are a much wiser lady to forgive your dad his wrong doings. Our parents were at times cruel, when we were not old enough to understand! Very Sad. May the Lord forgive them, for they knew not what they were doing! Amen? There is a animal Heaven, in which I do believe! So, Muffy is there, I would think. There to greet you one day, and tell you what a fabulous meal she had, before she left the earth!:smile::hug:

I will agree with you on this...I too would like a bird that could sing the old classic hymns that you mentioned. That would be so awesome! Thanks for sharing. :hug:

I never thought of it that way before. "Muffy's Last Supper."

Btw, it could have been our old Tom cat, as both lived outside on the farm. The door was open the day the canary went missing. We don't even know definitively it was Muffy. Dad just flew off the handle having a meltdown over his pet bird.

Albeit if I was a mama cat, and saw a cute little Tweety bird swinging happily in his cage on a clear sunshiney day, I'd probably be plotting his demise as well. She had her babies to feed!

Jade had you ever thought to get a bird for yourself today and time? Maybe you can name it "Tuffy"...for surely you will read the word of God to it, and it will become one STRONG and Smart bird! JUST SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT! :smile::hug:

I'm very sad and sorry to hear your tale about Muffy, your pet cat, Jadefox.
It was heartbreaking to hear.

May God bless you, Jadefox.
