The End.

Problems


How hard can it possibly be to find a stuffed parrot???

I went to FOUR stores (one Craft, two Pet, and a Halloween store) and came up parrotless.

I found Pink flamingos, Purple hippos, and an entire stack of Pink Platypus (Platypuses? Platypodes? Platypi?)

No Parrots.

I found a Cardinal, a flock of Ducks, a clutch of chickens, and some very Angry Birds.

No Parrots.

Argh!


Prop Pointers


Did you know there is a YouTube video, by a guy who sounds rather like Captain Jack Sparrow, showing how to tie a pirate bandana?

Did you know it's incredibly hard to tie a pirate bandana on a dog's head?

After going to the effort to fold the thing, I ended up punting on the rear tieback and instead made pigtails using rubber bands and then looping string around them and around the back of Henry's head.

Can't decide if he looks more like a pirate or Raggedy Andy.

Argh!

Argh!


Zzzzzz
Oh dear

Shiver me timbers! That is fantastic! I'm going to be giggling about Kitty in the sauce all day. I had that stuffed parrot of mine in with a basket of Beanie Babies from eons ago! I'm sorry you couldn't find one, but I think your shot is fantastic, even without one!

And yes, I know exactly how hard it is to tie a bandanna on a dog's head! Argh!
