A terrific Jelly who has been here longer than most, with a wonderful sense of humor and considered, intelligent responses has reached 20K and deserves a party!

Thank you all who know this. How is it that you do know this? Is it an English thing?

In Holland, this     are three _Spaties.
That is the best I can come up with.

Enjoy your well-deserved party, @Spatzie, and many congratulations.

Isn’t “Spatzie” a German term of endearment?

Don’t worry, @Earthgirl. I always think of Spätzle, too. Now I have to get this image of a sparrow covered with noodles and sour cream sauce out of my head somehow! Think I’ll go hunt me a moose!

ConGRatS on the 20k, KEEP IT UP :D

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

When I hit 20k, there had better be strippers, a chocolate wrestling pit, giant rum fountains and an elite hit squad whose sole purpose is to protect me from spiders. Just sayin’...

MilkyWay's avatar

You forgot the chocolate ball pit.

Stinley's avatar

Birds and words. That’s all it takes to make us happy.

Good for you

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Congrats. Anyone that likes birds has got to be a good addition to the digs.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Bellatrix's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate, what are those feathers sticking out of your mouth….?

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

I have no <mmph> idea what you’re talking <mmph> about.

Mariah's avatar

Hey @SpatzieLover, I’m becoming a spatzie lover myself. They hang out in big groups all over campus, noisily foraging. Provide great entertainment while I walk to class. I love watching them as we don’t get much wildlife here.

SpatzieLover's avatar

^Thank you for sharing @Mariah. We have a “purple martin house” in our front yard. I installed it for the spatzies. The clan has grown so large, I think I’ll be installing another home as soon as the ground thaws. They do provide such wonderment. Such social little beings!
