Bob Says Hello To Belize Parrots

May 26, 2010

I caught Bob The Parrot on the www.tacogirl.com blog from Belize. They had a great article on protecting the parrots of Belize which I strongly support. Bob was flirting however with the parrot pictured in the article, I just can’t take my eyes off him for a minute…..I think he was trying to arrange a date with the parrot for when we go to San Pedro, Ambergris Key for Lobsterfest June 14-19th. Anyway, we are getting ready and looking forward to seeing all our friends and viewers In belize.

Getting Really Excited

May 21, 2010

Hi everyone, this is Joey Stevens. Bob The Parrot and I are getting excited about traveling in June and July. We will be headed to Barbados and Granada the first week in June to see old friends and take care of business. Look for us at our favorite hangout, “Bert’s Bar” on the island of Barbados and on the beautiful beach in front of The Flamboyant hotel on the island of Granada. We won’t get a whole lot of time to relax because we are off to Belize to San Pedro and Ambergris Key for the Lobsterfest June 14-19th. Apparently one of the things we will be doing is guest judge In a lobster contest (Bob asked me if the contestants would be wearing bathing suits) I told him I think they will be cooked….he didn’t speak to me for two days!!!! Finally we will be off to the country of Guyana in July to do two half hour shows on that beautiful country, I’ll give you more details when we get closer to that trip. I think we better start to do some packing, Bob always makes a big deal out of packing which really ticks me off since he only owns one shirt!!! Have a great weekend, more next week.
