Almost everyone has heard of the proverbial Polly Parrot, right?
Well, guess what?
A Polly parrot has joined our household and is causing lots of fun.
She's "almost" real, but not quite.
She sure LOOKS real!
At times, she closes her greenish eyes half-way, like a living, breathing parrot.
The rest of the time, she's a wide-eyed wonder.
She has a long, soft turquoise tail and wings.
And she talks!
Yep, she says all kinds of things that will surprise the "bazookers" out of any onlooker.
She'll make a great burglar deterrent if set up in a corner of a dark room.
This Polly Parrot used to call an elementary school classroom home. The kids loved her.
When my youngest sister retired as a teacher, however, Polly came to her home and then ours, thanks to the pleading of a grandchild.
We all get a kick out of Polly.
As much as I'd love to have one of her living cousins, our Polly comes without poop, so that's a good thing.
