I diverted myself with talking to my parrot…

While browing through the New York Public Library’s excellent digital collection, I found the above image, with the descriptor already noted in this blog post: “I diverted myself with talking to my parrot.” The title reminds me of someone I used to know… [Originally an illustration for Robinson Crusoe. Illustrator Rhead, Louis (1857-1926)]

    Steve’s danged parrot managed to perfectly mimic the sound of a flashbulb falling to the floor and shattering. Chingus, my parrot just loved to mimic the sound of urine spilling into a toilet. Jeez what memories.
