I'm fine .. and it hardly even scratched her bumper but crushed in the front of my bumper ... DH is going to be livid. And we're supposed to drive the toyota to florida day after tomorrow.

I'm afraid he'll make a big deal and want it all checked out .. bla bla bla ... there is nothing leaking or anything .. it appears to just be the bumper..

Glad it was nothing serious - you weren't texting while driving were you? JUST Kidding - hubby gives me a hard time about flipping songs on my ipod at red lights - he says it is the same as texting as driving - I argue that I'm still at a red light but that I will make an honest effort at flipping songs while I drive if it is so important to him because I want to live up to his expectations - I'll do anything for him I love him so much - I usually get smacked on the back of the head or pinched at this point....

Off topic for our Texan bird people here - question -

Does anyone have experience with conures? I've been looking for a companion - or otherwise 'additional bird' to have around to be friends with my cockatoo (separate cages) for a couple of years (parakeets don't work - tried that). I care more about personality than anything, so I've passed up a bunch of birds. I'm not outright searching, but I do take the time to look at birds when I pass them by at stores, or wherever. Fell in LOVE last night with an adorable in-your-face 9 month old sun conure last night....been thinking seriously about him, but I hear they are SUPER loud - well, what is loud? Parakeets are loud - are they louder than parakeets? Parakeets won't shut up EVER and they will carry on all day. My cockatoo is vocal at certain times of the day, but that's it, and no big deal.

Anybody know about conures? I played with him for 30 minutes last night...super great with my older daughter - he likes to lay on his back and roll and go get toys and bring them to you. Would work great for the family and is a very hands on bird, down your shirt and going to sleep upside down. But constant on the hour every hour noise (like parakeets) is a deal breaker and youtube doesn't show me anything obnoxiously loud but the fact sheets on them warn of there volume. Any thoughts-opinions-experiences to share?

Sun Conures are loud ... they might not be as FREQUENT as parakeets, but they are much MORE FREQUENT noise makers than a cockatoo ... and they are loud.

I mean like, shut your eyes and cringe kinda loud. Like, if there is another conure within 6 blocks, they are going to answer back and communicate all day ... loud.

The only conure louder is the Nanday .. omg.

And quakers are just obnoxious..

Greencheeks are probably the quietest .. but they aren't much bigger than a parakeet..

(I've had and loved them all ... lol ... not anymore.)

No, no geocaching for me... haven't figured out what GPS/HR monitor I want to buy. Nor do I have the funds for that 'extra' right now since I'm just getting past the sting of buying my brand new horse trailer!

Sun conures are MUCH louder than budgies, but quieter than cockatoos. They are absurdly, painfully high pitched though. Some are not very noisy and only make their ear-shattering screams a couple of times a day, others learn to scream constantly for attention. That said, if you can handle a 'too, a sunnie shouldn't bee too tough for you.

Early cool morning Texans!! I'm going to the barn and in a great mood!! I think I'll ride my mare again today bareback. FINALLY got a saddle and it will be here next week!! Yaaay for getting enough business to buy a saddle!

Btw, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and I have several breast cancer awareness tack items I am making for sale! Check it out in my tack thread! =)
