A Sweet and Juicy Affair

Oh, my darling, I love you more than any parrot has ever loved a watermelon. Alas, my sweetness, our time together is short, but I promise to nibble you oh, so gently.

    But, isn’t this a repost?

  2. Yeah, this is a repost… I’ve seen it before.

  3. I have seen that expression on the face of my parrot when confronted by a watermelon …. or a bowl of apples …… or a stick of celery …… or a slice of pizza.

  8. I think it’s really hilarious that the ad at the top of the page when I opened it was “Keep your family safe from food-poisoning,” as the bird leans on the watermelon.

  9. Love the look of pure ecstasy on hees leetle face!

    I am in agreeance (?) with you. Parrot tongues are, indeed, neat – O !! 🙂
    (To me, it’s a sidebar of parrots being neat – O, overall!!)

  15. [waving pompons, but not stomping feet on bleachers this time]

  16. HAW

  17. I always found them rather alarming, like something so big shouldn’t live in there. 😯

  18. What I do like, however, is parrot eyes, especially how they look when closed. For some reason, they look especially sweet with closed eyes.

  19. Careful how you wave my pompoms there, ceejoe, you’re gonna put an eye out. 😛

  20. I just read all those comments too. lol. Whatever happened to Hon Glad?

  21. “ohh almost parrot-eyes, we’re knockin on heaven’s door!”

  22. Oh, and there’s a beak-hance there!!!

  23. You sound just like my dad used to… “It’s funny till someone loses an eye!”

  24. This pic made my day. The look on her face is priceless 🙂

  25. “Two Tickets to Parrot-Eyes”

    If you hold a watermelon to your ear, the sounds of the see-d will hypnotize you, making you sleeepy…..

  30. Me, too! Methinks Mr. Melon is actually the egg that hatched wee Polly there.

  34. I would like a new tag: ‘Bliss’ [or ‘Buhleeezzz’ if you must]

    But ‘butted cup? I don’t want to know!
