Welcome evfurry to Bacon’s show and Tell..
This time Bacon asked us to show a picture from our childhood and explain a bit about what it means…
Well we decided to show this picture of Mum..
Now this picture was most likely taken by an ancient scribe of the village..see Mum was about 4 so this makes it wayyyyyy back in time..you know..
We guess at about 8700BC..notice the cute little lace up shoes most likely she could not even do them up..she was a slow learner MOL…
Anywho Mum is holding her pet bird Cliffy..now Cliffy was a Pteradactyl
Or maybe a Galah…MOL..Mum loved him so much…see Mum had a little sister but she was not really fun to play with..
When she was bought home from hospital and Mum was asked what she thought about her new sister she said and i quote
‘Baby sissa dirt’ and so waged the battle that was Mum V sister.
So to Mum her pets were her world..Cliffy was great company…he went along with all Mum’s
bossy innovative and exciting games, he sat in her head which meant she did not have to carry him anywhere and he always listened to her monotonous made up stories fun chit chat.
Mum had several galahs and cockatoos over the years but Cliffy was her first ever pet and she learnt trust and friendship and love from this little guy.
Cliffy was the beginning of a love of all animals.
And even though Mum is an ancient relic of the past..she still remembers how it felt to have such a good friend..even one who could fly away but chose not too.
So thanks for all sharing your fun Show and Tells..paw pats and loves Dinnermintz xxx
