email from Don Staats, 11/19/08 - Don, N149892 is now owned and flown by Allen T. Johnson who lives in The Woodlands, TX, a community near Houston. Allen has been a friend of mine for several years and has long been a Parrakeet enthusiast. He was very pleased and excited to see my bird when I flew in to San Geronimo Airpark near San Antonio and vowed to get one for himself. Well he did! I have Allen as a Cc addressee to this email and hope the two of you can get together to include his story and maybe some new pictures on your wonderful web site.
