We've welcomed a new member into the family!

Can you see him?
He's right here!
And here!

We got Greentea, a lovebird, from the local pet shop last week as an early Christmas gift to ourselves. He/she is not a day over eight weeks (too young yet to determine sex). He practically leaped out of the bird pen at us when we were shopping, and he's already developed a very close bond with us.

Greentea's a quick study.
We see beak to nose.
It's a face-off!
Greentea pins me to the floor!
And I'm down for the count.

"Scrabble me this, Tileman!"

Dad and I took this one from Mom and Yume, 236-147. This was a full regulation team match; no special tiles used. From top to bottom, mine and Dad's remaining tiles are on the right; Mom's and Yume's are on the left.
