  Hello Earl the Grey
It's Sheba, come by to leave a greeting so that you'll know you've been thought of this day. I'm hoping all is well with you and your flock and family. Haven't got any complaints on this end, for the most part. There could always be more sunflower seeds in the dish and fewer stupid foraging toys to have to wrangle for a measly treat but hey, if those are the extent of my troubles, I have to admit Life is Good.

It's been a nice summer thus far with lots of opportunities for outdoor time in my remodeled parrot pen. (I don't think I even have a photo of the thing on my page. There are a couple of pictures of me while in it but that's about it.) Wonder what's new with you. I'm sure you're brimming to overflowing with stories about your latest antics and perfect-timing lines of intelligence. Believe it or not, little by little, I am finally adding new words to my vocabulary. I have been resistant to that temptation now for some six years but in recent weeks I've been caught saying things that are definitely trademark family lines. I'm getting soft in my advancing years!

Sending you love from the McFlock~

  Earl, Hello!
Your King flying by today to see that all is well with you and your family. I want to know that those in my Kingdom can truly say, "Life is Good".

If I might, I'd like to remind my fellow feathered friends of the potential joy that lies in visiting both Dewey-BOTM hopeful (110401) and Peanut (25589) our current Princess of the BC. Wouldn't want you to miss out on such a wonderful opportunity!

May all that brings you happiness be yours this coming weekend. T '> BOTW for a few more glorious days.

  Hi Earl The Squirrel
I see you visited my new friend Rosco, Mom met his Mom via a bird site as she was looking for cage for her new soon to be baby Caique. We had a spare just sitting here and turned out it was perfect for her new baby so we gave it to them. They live fairly close and we were very excited to meet bird lovers that close to us. His mom also works in our Vet's office so I got the inside scoop on all the goings on there so next time I go I'll see Roscoe's Mom and can get a hug..Have a good day my dear friend and get that beautiful red hiney outside and enjoy this beautiful day God had granted us..See you soon, give everyone at your house a big hug and high five from Romey

How is my handsome friend? Guess what? I went to visit the lady that mom got me from yesterday. I was her favorite grey and she cried when she held me. She missed me. She was going to keep me if no one bought me. But she said she knows I have a greyt home. So what have you been into handsome? Mom quit her job, so she has had more time to let us blog. I think of you often and hope to talk to ya soon! Big wingy hugzzzz! Gabby (v4u)

  Hello handsome!
Just stopping by to let you know I have been thinking about you. Mom took some new pics of me that are on here, and even more she hasn't downloaded yet. I can't wait for you to see them! I'm so happy in my new home. And giddy that I may have captured your heart. Gabby is Giddy in love.(heehee) Mom has still been working a lot of long hours and we haven’t been able to get on the computer to talk to our friends. Plus, it’s downstairs now, so I can’t escape and log on myself. Ball practice will be coming soon! And I’m getting ready exercising in my cage while mom works. Speaking of which, she said I need to go. She is looking for another job on the internet. Although she is grateful she has a job, she doesn’t like it much at all. Catch ya later my sweet! Birdy hugz & smooches! ~Gabriella~

My name is Gabriella. Max knows my big brother Cuddles. It had been brought to my attention that you are one handsome grey, we are close in age, and live kinda close too. Maybe you would like to be friends with me and see where it leads. Maybe we could have a future together? No pressure. I don't mean to come on too strong either, but your pictures just melted my heart. I will be thinking of you and hope to hear from you soon. ~Gabriella!

  Hi Earl its RubySue and the rest of the flock
Mommy & Daddy would like thank all our BC friends & family for the wonderful donations for us. Daddy is out of work because he hurt his leg and now needs knee surgery, and Mom & Dad have been worried about how they are going to feed us all birds without any income until EDD/SDI starts paying Daddy for lost of pay which is taking a long long time. Thank you again for all your prayers, supports and donations. Here's a big vote with birdie hugs and kisses Every birdie and their family are very special to us Boyds!!!!!!!!

Gizmo here... apologizing since Mom was not at the computer much these days. In fact she missed Pepper's hatchday and we are going do do something special on Sunday for him. I am writing for other reasons too... to invite you to join the CAG baseball teams. As of now there should be two teams. I see you already know Sheba, and you would be on the same team as her. I was going to ask Sam too but I believe he is a Timneh. Correct me if I am wrong and if I am, he is also invited. Let me know!

  Earl!
Is Mom back yet? Did she come in carrying LOTS of bags from her NY shopping trip? I'll bet you're going to get to hear all kinds of amusing stories come tomorrow morning. Be sure and ask her how the ice skating went. I've seen my mom on the ice; graceful ain't her middle name, that's for sure! Oooo, I wonder if any of the shopping bags had that famous toy store's name on them. Maybe she got you one of them 12' stuffed giraffes. Wouldnt' that make the most awesome playstand?! Wow... the height at which you could drop toys from. The noise they would make when they hit the ground from that far up. Earl, I've got a favor to ask of you. I know this is a busy time of the year but if by chance you happen to notice mom near or at the computer, would you mind begging her to take you to Jennifer Lynn's page so you can pound on the vote button at the top? I'd so like to help return the kindness she showed me by gathering her friends at my page to honor me with that fancy little award. It's her turn now and with your help, she can be The Winner. Thanks Earl. You're a pal. Looking forward to hearing about what you heard about mom's trip to the Big Apple. Keep those ear holes open for the juicy details. Until then... K *v*

  Hoping Your Day of Thanks was Wonderful
Sweetest Earl! At this late hour I'm sure your first Thanksgiving experience has come to an end unless of course you've snuck back into the kitchen for just one more piece of pie! I saw mom do that once already tonight. I wonder, what do you think of this grand feasting event these humans have? I have to say that past experiences, combined with events from today, make this a holiday worth looking forward to. In an effort to sum up my thoughts for this day of appreciation and gratefulness, I have a little poem to leave with you; As Thanksgiving Day, it closes, our blessings we recall; the things we are most thankful for, we recollect them all. You are really special, in all you say and do. You've made a difference in my life, I'm thankful now for YOU. Kisses from K *v*

  Okay Squirrel What's Happening?
in your corner of the world. Have you taken over the roost yet? I knew you would, Greys tend to do that, but I bet Max is giving you a run for your money, Am I correct in that assumption. Things around here are not so hot, Mom had her right leg put in a cast today due to a broken bone in her foot, which also means she's on crutches for a while, and I won't go near her if I see them, they scare me. She's more upset about that than anything. She calls me to come snuggle with her but I"m not going near her if I see those long sticks by her side, she can forget it. She has this sad look on her face tho and I feel sorry for her but not enough to get near those crutches. Six weeks is a long time to hold out with my fear but I don't know what else to do. Hope life's treating you well and your enjoying being the new guy. Take care and We shall see you soon, Your Pal Romeo

  Earl!
Kelly here! How are you, Handsome young man? From the look of your newest pictures, you're settling right in, making yourself comfortable, callin' the place your own. Believe I read somewhere (possibly my own page in a note from Max) that you've eat to eat a fruit or veggie with much relish (that's 'desire', not pickle relish!!). Tell mom not to worry. You will eventually. Yes, you will! I say this with confidence because I've been there, done that—ignored all the 'Good Stuff' but have, in recent months, started eating a bit of everything offered me. I get tired of seeing it show up in my food dish day after day! So, tell me, what words are being uttered by that dashingly handsome beak of yours? I'll bet you're just full of all kinds of thoughts and idea waiting to be expressed. Let's see, have I said anything of profoundness lately? Mmmmm. Nope. I started repeating the lines from the parakeets' talking toy... "Hello Bird" & "Oh, You're a Pretty Bird" but mom's not all that impressed with those I guess. She wants lines like, 'You've got to be kidding' Dad's trying to get me to say a favorite line of my Marine brother, 'That's just retarded!' Hope this finds you enjoying life to the fullest, Earl. I like the photo of you with your Brand Name Tea... You're a classy fellow. With luv... K*v*

  Hi Earl the Squirrel A Veteians Day Vote
Earl are you keeping Max and Sam in line, and do you guys get to hang out together. CoCo and I are to a point now whereas we can hang out in the same space as long as Mom is close by, sometimes she will get close enough to give me a kiss on the beak.
The three tiels are down on the floor right now as Smokey is giving then a guided tour of the floor space. Mom will be getting them a bigger cage so they can be together now that they are getting along so well. Smokey had to stake his territory but now that's settled everything is going just fine. It's so cute to watch them running around on the floor. I'm not allowed out tho, as Mom knows me well and I'd be having tiel for breakfast,lol. They get me all excited with their chirps and wing flutters, drives me crazy and I want to get them. Have a great day my friend and I'll be back, that's for sure. Romeo

  Hey Squirrel
Happy Sunday morning to ya. Great to hear from you. Missed you at the shindig last night. Guess Mom's not letting you out yet. Maybe you can make the next one. That Jack showed me some dance moves last night that were such fun. I'm not a big dancer by any means but do love to jam it up with my friends. The tiels are running around in the floor this morning exploring everything. That Buttercup is getting to where she doesn't want to stay on her cage top. So if she doesn't tone it down, we may have to start locking her up part of the time. Don't want her getting into trouble. She sure has a mind of her own. We're still enjoying beautiful fall weather, but the leaves are falling and making a mess on my patio, guess it's time to get the broom out and sweep them away. Gotta run but you have a wonderful hanging out with Max and Sam, tell them hello for me and I'll be by soon to check on them to. Your Pal Romeo

  Hey Pretty Boy Romeo gracing your pg again
You know we can call you that until your about 2, then we have to change it to something els. When I first came to Mom at 7mo old, she called me pretty boy. I even called my self pretty boy, but our IL friends Jen and Christy started making fun of me and said it was a sissy name, they were just kidding but I took it to heart and decided to change my nickname to Burrd. Mom's best friend says to me Hey Burrd, so I picked it up and ran with it. Now I have CoCoPuff saying Hey Burrd. And it sounds like Mom spells it, emphasis on the R's. The crap we have to deal with as burrds. I can also tell CoCo she's a pretty girl, and she calls me burrd,,teehee. Earl, Mom's not a familiar with Grey's as she would like to be but your profile doesn't say whether your Congo or otherwise. The red tail indicates your Congo,right? You can correct me if I'm wrong. Mom knows more about Cockatoo's, Sennies and Tiels. But we've met so many Grey's that we just love on the BC. Kelly and Sheba to name a few, I think those girls are drop dead gorgeous, wouldn't you say, or, are you still to young to appreciate a pretty girl, lol.Gotta run handsome, but I'll see you again now that we're aquainted. Have a great evening, I might stop off at the dance, just have to wait and see how I'm feeling...Romeo
