Don’t miss the Budgie Olympics

Apparently there is going to be a little bit of sport in 2012 going on in a park somewhere in East London, that’s what I overheard on a train once anyway so it might not be true.

Forget all that though, this is infinitely better – the budgie Olympics!

Today Jerry has been competing rather fiercely (with himself) at the wonderful event of Key Throwing. This sport entails grabbing a key with his beak and seeing how far he can fling or fly and drop it across the room. Jerry has managed 2.70 Metres as a Personal Best (yes we actually got the tape measure out) and the way he is training I am expecting him to break the sacred 3 Metre mark tomorrow and I also hope to catch him in action – immortalised in film – or at least Pixels.

    LOL@ stare at the wheely bird!
    How long can Roswell stay upside down for? Does he have a personal best he wants to beat?

      I am not sure what his personal best is, just till the blood rushes to his head..
