Another Spiel from the ‘Tiel
Hey there, guys! It's me again. You know ..... Spotty, the cutest ever cockatiel. My dad says that I'm a messy little 'Fawker,' when he cleans up my cage every morning, and calls me 'Poops', 'cause he says that's what I do best. I'm so proud that he thinks I'm like a German flying machine, although sometimes his German pronunciation is a little bit off. I prefer it when he just calls me Poops.
Anyway, my dad says that I'm the only two-buzz birdie on line, as you may remember from the last couple of times I reached out to you kind buzzy bee folks on beBee.com:
So my dad says that, since I was well behaved the last couple of times I spoke to all you nice buzzy bee people, and since I didn't 'offend' anyone, that I can have another chirpy chat with you all on his blog. I don't really know what 'offend' means, and my dad says I didn't do this to any of you buzzy bees, but if I didn't 'off-end' anyone does that mean that I must have 'on-ended' some of you?
My mum still says that my dad spends too much time blogging and calls him a "busy little blogger", or at least that's what it sounds like to me. But I know that my dad's happy when he's blogging and I often get to sit on his shoulder when he's hard at work on his MacBook. My dad says that he spends most of his beBee Mac time composing comments, so that the buzzy bees who really love to tell stories about themselves and ''open their minds and hearts" to the other bees, will know that their stories have been 'a pre she ate head'. I'm not sure who this 'she' is, but she must be hungry and must like that delicious 'potted head' from the butcher, as much as my dad does.
My dad sometimes gets nice comments back from other buzzy bees. One of these is a doctor (Ian Weinberg) who lives a long way away from us in a country called 'South of Free Car'. I often wonder if Dr Ian helps the other buzzy bees to "open their minds and hearts". Gosh, if he does, then I hope that he sews then back together again.
My dad uses big words all the time and I don't always know what they mean, but he chuckles a lot when he's on his Mac. He says that he is happy when the paper that he sometimes prints on gets a scare. Well I think that's what he means by things being 'tickety boo'.
Another nice buzzy bee man from 'South of Free Car' is Mr Gert Scholtz. My dad says that Mr Gert is a 'clever righter' and often 'show-cases' the work of the other bees and 'high-lights' how good they are. I'm guessing that Mr Gert must have a lot of luggage and that his house has tall ceilings. He must also be 'all right' since my dad never says he's a 'clever lefter'.
Many of the other bees, that my dad talks with on beBee, are from a country where they use some alphabet letters too much, called 'Use less of A'. They have a boss man there with yellow hair stuck on top of his head and who talks funny. He looks just like my friend, Clive Cocky, particularly when he struts around on that big moving picture box on the wall which my mum calls 'why don't you switch that off'. Clive Cocky is a sulfur-crested cockatoo, who comes from 'Outer Wop Wop' on the other side of the black stump. I wonder if they have a black stump in the 'Use less of A' and if that sulfur-crested boss man comes from the other side of it? I hope boss man likes where he comes from, 'cause my dad says there's lots of people in the 'Use less of A' who would like him to go back to where he comes from.
There are too many buzzy bees in the 'Use less of A' for me to mention, but my dad often talks to Ms Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee, who has a very sad picture on beBee.com. I bet you wouldn't be so sad, Ms Joyce, if I came to visit. I'd let you scratch my head, Ms Joyce. I love getting my head scratched by my dad. Do you like your head being scratched, Ms Joyce? Then there's Ms Susan 🐝 Rooks, the Grammar Goddess, who's always funny on Fridays. To cheer you up, I'd let you scratch my head on non-Fridays, Ms Susan, if I came to visit.
My dad says I should also mention Ms Cyndi wilkins who's a 'Sole Proprietor". I don't wear shoes, Ms Cyndi, but if I did I'd let you fix them when their bottoms are broken. And not to forget the lady my dad calls the Queen Bee, Ms Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador. Ms Franci also writes a lot about other bees and writes poetry. Does that make you a good head scratcher, Ms Franci?
And then there's all those clever people working in that factory next door to all these 'Use less of A' buzzy bees, where they wrap their relatives in metal. This country's called 'Can a Dad'. My dad talks to lots of those 'Can a Dad Ians' on beBee.com, and says they share a queen with us and that they also take part in the Commonwealth Games. I was going to enter the Games this year when they were held in our Gold Coast, just down the road. I was practicing my sprinting across the kitchen floor, and training hard to keep ahead of my mum's vacuum cleaner, but my dad said it wouldn't help me in the long run.
Some buzzy bee people, who my dad talks to from 'Can a Dad' , are Ms Renée 🐝 Cormier who's a 'sucks-eggs coach', Mr Randall Burns who's a good cooker, Mr Graham🐝 Edwards who's a 'Gone Sulking Principal', and then there's Ms Jennifer Leach-Trask who my dad says is a 'President'. I wonder if she knows Mr Boss Man from the 'Use less of A' next door?
Of course my dad says that we mustn't forget the buzzy bees who started beBee.com, and especially Mr Javier 🐝 beBee. Mr Javier lives in a country called Spain, which my dad says is very wet but which has really good drain pipes. My dad often tells me that, "The rain in Spain falls mainly down the drain".
One other nice man, whose blogs my dad likes to read, lives way up in the mountains, in a place called 'Higher Land'. If you're reading this, Mr Pascal Derrien, my dad says that you were born in France and that you later hopped over to 'Higher Land'. You must have frogs legs, Mr Pascal, if you hopped all that way. Were there too many big waves like Sue's nan Lees in France, so that you had to move to 'Higher Land'?
Oh, and I almost forgot, just a couple of wing flaps across from our Northern Territory, is a fun place called Bali, where my dad says a travel man, Mr Paul Walters, hangs around in his hammock all day (that's when he's not repairing his bicycle or visiting exciting places far away). My dad says that Mr Paul calls himself a 'pro cast in later'. I'm not sure what a 'pro cast in later' actually does, Mr Paul, but I'm sure good things will happen if you just wait.
Oh, and wait some more, because I almost forgot a couple of ladies who my dad says are the bees knees. First there's Ms Lada 🏡 Prkic, who, like my dad, is an 'engine-ear' and comes from a place called 'Crow Ace', ya. I don't really know what my dad does when he's away at work, Ms Lada, but if you 'engine-ears' are so clever, why don't you invent something so that those engines can listen for themselves? The other lady, Ms Claire L Cardwell is also from 'South of Free Car', loves curves and is an 'arch tech'. My dad says that lots of 'arch techs' make things difficult for 'engine-ears' , Ms Claire, because curves are so difficult to construct. My dad, however, loves straight edges, but because he doesn't do design work any more, he doesn't use them as a rule.
Well that's it for now. I'm sorry if I forgot to mention any of my dad's buzzy bee people, but if I have, perhaps you can write to me in the comments section below and say g'day. It would be better if you came to visit and scratched my head, but my dad says that many of you would need a long flight to get here and I know how tired your arms can get on a long flight. It would also be nice if you would tick the little two rude fingers box with the 'relephant' next to it, although I always thought that 'relephants' had trunks not fingers.

Oh, yes, and my dad says that I should add something at the bottom about him. So here is something I found on a post that he wrote from his own bottom.
Besides being a sometime poet and occasional writer, Ken Boddie is an enthusiastic photographer, rarely leisure-travelling without his Canon, and loves to interact with other like-minded people with diverse interests.
Ken's three day work week (part time commitment) as a consulting engineer allows him to follow his photography interests, and to plan trips to an ever increasing list of countries and places of scenic beauty and cultural diversity.
