I just wanna apologise for my remarks. Yes I have shortcomings.
I was drinking and my family was giving me a hard time. I know
you wanna do good for your bird. I only wish I had the money to
take him so you'd feel better. Sometimes I say things before
thinking. I'll ask my friends if they're interested. I wish you
the best of luck with your bird.
