I thought that 'doon the trooser leg' was one o' mine. Bah.  Sad

I like the sound of thon parrot. How long did it live? - whit happened to it? I understand they can live an improbable amount of years. Ye have to make provision for it in yir will, and that.

Bud Neill had a parrot. They were firm pals. Allegedly it was saying 'cheerio, cheerio' as Bud's coffin was leavin the hoose. Disconsolate.

Ooops! Grovelling apologies. It must hae bin brain freeze, ah'd jist finished a ice cream, ah jist kent ah shuid hae checked.

A cousin was at my aunt's 80th recently and said the bird was there too, still swerrin. Addin it up, we think he must be around 100. The old Duchess got him before the war in the thirties from a pet shop near the Liverpool docks, or so she said. She was told he was in his 20s then and had belonged to a sailor*. The old girl died in 1976 and my aunt had him till around 2002 when she got ill and had to go to a nursing home. Now he lives with the duchess' grandson.

* I believe it.
