Sharon's favorite hotel on the Florida trip was the Biltmore in Coral Gables. In the lobby of the hotel, there were a number of cages with finches. Both Sharon and Jack were very excited about the finches; they talked about them on a number of ocassions after we left Miami.

A couple of days after we got back from the trip, I noticed Sharon reading a book about finches while we were getting ready for bed. As it got closer to Jack's birthday, Sharon started talking about getting him a cage and some finches.

I went down last Monday and ordered a flight cage. Today, we went and picked up the cage and two pairs of finches. We got a pair a pair of Lady Gouldians and Society finches.

The whole process took forever. The store (The Bird Stop) was packed with people and it took a while to get waited on. Once we got everything, I realized that we could not fit the cage and Jack into the Explorer at the same time. I ended up having to take Sharon and Jack home and coming back for the cage and the birds; a sixty mile round trip.

Eventually, we got everything home, got the cage set-up and the birds in the cage. I will post some pictures of the cage and the birds over the next week. I am still not sure that I understand how the cat is going to coexist with the birds...
