The Real Henry Miller

People are always asking me about who works here at the Mimi Green studio so I am going to give everyone a peek in.

First, I think we should start with the backbone of Mimi Green, the hardest worker around, the real boss, Henry Miller.

Sometimes he gets really mad at us if we are talking and messing around.

And he's been known to take out his anger on our thread, machines, and fabric. But we know he always means well.

He's pretty convinced that he is a human, even tries to drink water out of cups ;)  At least he told me that was water in the cup…

I was kind of put off last week when Dan bought himself a desk that practically takes up half of our space, but turns out that it was a great purchase. Henry now spends his days pacing the long desk hollering out commands such as  "Give me a Kiss" or "Come here girls".

Dan got Henry as a birthday present when he was just a little hatchling. (is that what you call a baby parrot? I don't know, but it sounds right!)

He now has a pretty big vocabulary and learns new sounds and words everyday. 

Now, if I could just teach him to say, "Amanda You're Good Enough, You're Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like You!" 

"Baby got back" will also do.
