    I never had a canary but I was so in love with my parakeet, Pepi, who I got when I was 10.

    I always pick up artifacts if they’re cute and music oriented and really love this little can. The little songbird sits on top of one of my speakers in the recording studio. Although I must say that pizza is the first choice of most song birds in the room.

      Oh yeah! Blue and white. He had 2 spectacular skills. First, I used to stack little plastic loving cup trophies on top of each other until they were about 4 feet high. He would climb up one by one until he reached the top. Amazing as he never knocked any over. Also, and this was the greatest, I had a pet goldfish named Grace who was all gray. Pepi would stand on the edge of the bowl and dip his head in all day to say hello. In the afternoon he would actually jump in with only his head above water and Grace would swim around him all day. They died within one week of each other, unfortunately the same week my mom passed away, in 1964. ( I know you weren’t expecting that end to the story…)
