I got an email yesterday from the fabulous Kate, pointing out that in spite of Birdie's adoptive status and mystery background, it is still possible to discover something of her genealogy.
"Dear Cheasty," wrote Kate. "Now you know I love Birdie, but... I do think that second picture of her [on yesterday's post] looks a bit like Jaba the Hutt's pet, Salacious Crumb."
I didn't want to believe it. My adorable Bird, related to such a repugnant creature?
But then I looked at the picture Kate was talking about.
Oh, dear. I guess from now on it'll be Uncle Salacious Crumb.
