Boomer, on the left, passed away Saturday morning. He was a good little guy.
We were going to get one budgie, but right after I picked him out, he snuggled up to Tex, on the right. So we brought both of them home.
Tex, the survivor, has always been the more people-oriented of the two, but he is still looking for his brother. He checks the foot of the sheer curtains that are behind them in this shot, because in his last days Boomer sometimes overshot this perch and slid down them, where we’d rescue him.
Six years is not long enough. Hoping little Tex stays with us a long time.
