Tesla's gone  
Tesla died today while we were out. I'm not too sad about it. I went through the worst of it a few days ago. I'm glad he's not suffering anymore. He was getting so skinny. We buried him in the backyard. My biggest regret is I didn't get to breed him. It's too bad he was at the end of his life when Bullet came around because she liked him. She does not like Optic. Those two do not get along. And Peep is doing good for an old bird.

Chris was a bit sick today with a sore throat. But was well enough later to go have dinner with me. We didn't get any calls and his boss gave him the rest of the day off. We watched Shrek. We'll watch part 2 and 3 the next few days. I've been thinking about Shrek a lot because he was on the ship.

I've started a new drawing with Gallemotch. It's coming along well so far. No word back from Alex on the new graphics card yet. I hope he writes me because I'm getting sick of my laptop and need to get back to photoshop. So that means I need to concentrate on the pencil art. It's funny because I know Gallemotch looks really complex but I find him extremely easy to draw.

That's all for now. I'm too lazy to add tags and moods at the moment.

It's good Tesla is at peace. I need to do a Shrek marathon, we have all four movies I think. I keep wanting to watch the Hey Arnold! movie because I had a dream the other night they did a terrible live action version of it. I haven't seen it for years.
Good luck with the art! I have a pic I'm working on to finish and a sketch commission.

Yeah it was going too long with him suffering. I didn't know there was a 4th one. I think I only have 3 of them. I had a nightmare last night about budgies that really sucked.
Thanks. I've got so much half started art. It's pretty bad.

I'm sorry about Tesla.

Sorry Chis is a bit sick. I hope he gets better soon. That was good of work to give him the day off.

Shrek is a good movie. I wouldn't object to a re-watch.

Hope you can get a new graphics card soon!

He seems better this morning. Hope that's over now. Yeah his boss is cool.

I like that too. I'll watch part 2 tonight.

Me too.

I'm glad Tesla is at peace now. I know it would have been inbreeding because Tesla was Bullet's uncle, but if you had paired them, you could have gotten the treasured male lacewings because Tesla was split to it so any kids of his would have a 50% chance of carrying lacewing, and Bullet would pass lacewing to all her sons if you breed her.

I hope Chris gets better.

I will have to do some inbreeding because I'd love to have a male lacewing again. I have been thinking about who will be her future mate of if I'll introduce new genes.

Thanks. I think he's getting better.

Tesla had one other brother besides Bullet's dad, didn't he? I know he's dilute, but Bullet's parents weren't, so she would pass on her good lacewing markings. All of Tesla's brothers carry lacewing. If you bred Bullet to the other Tesla brother, you would get 25% chance of male lacewings, 25% female lacewings, 25% males split to lacewing, and 25% non-lacewing females.

Yes, I was looking at him today thinking about this. Or go to a bird show a buy a new budgie. Maybe another lacewing or a recessive pied.

I know you would get all lacewings if you bred her to a lacewing, but breeders tend not to part with male lacewings if they have them. You were lucky to get Gaus.

I'll just have to see what's out there. Actually I got Gaus before I had figured out how to sex budgies. The breeder told me he was a girl so I bought him. I needed a female for some reason. Then it turned out he was a male. I don't know if she'd have sold him if she had known that but I seem to remember there being males. It was ages ago.

I'm awfully sorry to hear that Tesla passed. He had a good life. I think the hardest part of the end is the suffering.

Hope Chris is feeling better, too.
