Cosmo, The Talkative Grey Parrot
by Betty Jean Craige
When I started writing my Witherston Murder Mystery series—Downstream, Fairfield’s Auction, and Dam Witherston—I could use two hands to type. Now I am proceeding more slowly, at least during daylight hours, because Cosmo, my very talkative African Grey Parrot, wants to cuddle on my lap. If I don’t keep caressing her with my left hand she reminds me: “Cosmo wanna cuddle.” So I have learned to type with my right hand.
