A Voice In The Night But Not Richie or me

 Not last night, but the night before ...I was woken by a soft but articulate voice saying, "Take care; Grim Reaper Grim Reaper."  It was our cockatiel Lady Bird with her dulcet little voice!

I was hoping she'd do it again with another of her sayings last night but apparently she wasn't in the mood for a concert. Grim Reaper in the middle of the night is disturbing on some level...

When in the mood to use her soft voice she also says:

Drink your beer!

Be a bird!

Take care!

Grim Reaper !

Which use of her linguistic skills is rather disconcerting! 

But her "voice" is soft and lulling and I drifted back to sleep.  Richie was sorry he'd missed it but not enough to berate me for not waking him up.  Himself likes a good rest.

To avoid confusion - an explanation - her name Lady Bird has nothing to do with the late Mrs. Johnson and her equally dead husband Lyndon.

Rest up today Lady Bird - your fans await you.
