“Polly, what is that instrument?”
“Well, I asked for an English HORN, and this is what showed up!”
“Looks more like an overgrown oboe.”
“I think it plays like one too.”

Some of the 'other' themed milongas have included Disco, Ice Dancing, Baseball, Luau, Memorials, Country Fair—Polly raced on a pig, Water sports—Polly & I tipped in the canoe race, Pirate, Wild West—that's when Pirate King SamIam was chased for the crime he did NOT commit, a Bachelor Auction, and Beach. Recently we had the Bird Olympics. In May 2011 Bailey started the Annual Derby Milonga. The lady birds wear hats and the gentlemen place bets. Birds get to ride horses with names from former Derby winners. Polly got to race in the 2nd annual derby, he had fun. Chyna called the race this year. It was very eggciting.
There is a LOT of work and planning that goes into the milongas. Mostly this is done by Kiddo, RaneBeau, and Pringle. Sometimes there are games that we play before the party, like for the western milonga. Birds were joining with the sheriff or with Jenny Lynn Ringo's band of 'outlaws'. Pringle will sometimes collect avatars and there will be voting for which one is best, or follows a theme. Sometimes there is voting on the Artistic Avatar page. Thanksgiving had many awards for profile pictures and avatars.
These parties are usually in and around the castle. Lizzie, the chef, provides MANY wonderful foods.
Also pieces have been added to the castle to accommodate what we use for the parties. There is the barn with stalls for the race horses, and the pig barn for all the racing pigs. Yes Polly, I know you want to go visit Itsy.
There is a river besides the lake by the castle, that is where the Water sports Milonga was.
I know some birds are frustrated during Milongas because of the high 'traffic' on the page. The rule WE follow is to type our comments, (sometimes its best to copy them to the clipboard too!) and then try to post. We do get SQUAWKED, but that is where clipboard is handy. We just try again. Then there may be several threads, but it is all fun. Remember you can 'refresh' by clicking on the picture in the “Family Photos”. This will also be true for the game this Saturday. Check the calendar page for details.
Thank you for your votes,

PS Mr. RaneBeau remembers those Tango Milongas. He had a note about Turk the Chef. Turk got his start at Kelly's Masquerade Ball, remember that first party at the castle? Queen Kelly asked him to tend the mead and all. Seeing how greyt a job he did, other birds started requesting his services, this led to “Turk's Catering”. You can view him on page #26646. His mom MAY get up some of his food pics.
