Boy oh boy, what a crummy week for folks who use Blogger. There were problems with posting and with leaving comments (on my fifth anniversary too, boooo!). And now I discover that 10 completed drafts are gone. It's going to be a busy weekend.
Anyway, today we will visit Parrot Jungle, just south of Miami Florida! PJ was founded way back in 1936 by Franz and Louise Scherr, making it one of the very first tourist attractions in the Miami area. Here's a description: Parrot Jungle was built as a winding nature trail dug through the coral rock and hammock land, indigenous to the area. All the natural plants were left undisturbed. .... visitors each paid 25 cents admission to see and hear Franz Scherr talk about his birds, trees and flowers.
Parrots live for a long time (or so I'm told), maybe this cockatoo went on to star as "Fred" in the TV show "Baretta". It could happen.
