Decision Made...Finally!

I have finally decided to go meet Freddie. Hopefully on Saturday(if it's convenient with the owner) I will drive four hours, meet Freddie, and if everything looks good, I will return with him on Sunday. The way I see it is this....

I have some security with a one month trial if I find that we're not a good match.

I'll worry about Hormones later, if and when needed. Hormonal behavior won't last forever.

It's impossible to see "down the road" with any accuracy. I refuse to let anxiety about all possibilities stop me from trying this. I'm 55....I'll find Freddie a good home, when and if I can't do it anymore. I may live and be healthy for 25 more years. I may develop some weird illness next year...Who knows?

It's a relief to have finally decided. This bird has been "talking" to me for months !!! My husband says that if I had put as much thought into getting pregnant, we'd be now childless...He's actually intrigued by Freddie as well, so that is a plus.

I am REALLY excited for you, Sharon!

Please let us know how your meeting goes with Freddie... which basically means that I expect a lot of pictures once he's settled into your home

Best wishes to you both!

Ashley - this is an older thread. Sharon did bring Fred home and he is doing fantastic for her; he talks, sings, begs for scritches, and has bonded very strongly with her I can't believe it's been over a year since she got Freddy! It seems like she's had him for so long She posts more regular updates on Fred on the linnie forum
