  Hello BB~
I hope you had a wonderful day! I still have rain but it makes it seem much more normal than all that sunshine and hot temps! Crazy that we would miss the rain!
We didn't do much today. Mom grabbed a nap when she got home and then took the kids to work. She stopped by the market on the way back and got me some grapes! They were yummy.
Tomorrow we have lots of chores to get done so I'll be supervising it all! We are going to be home together so that is all that matters to me!
There are still lots of people up here who do not have power. It may take a few more days to fix it all since there were a lot of trees that fell down and some of the roads in the rural areas are still blocked. At least the wind has been calmer for the last few days so no more trees coming down!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

Today is my last day in the castle.The last two months have been awesome and I'm honored to be able to share my heritage and traditions and the real truth with you.
I have come to all of you with a pure heart filled with love.Carry that love with you in everything you do and every journey you may go on. Love is very powerful in my tribe.
Today I'm offering you something very powerful.

The gift of life from our creator and all our service men who have turned from warriors to soldiers to fight for all of us now and before and fight for our lives and our freedom.

I have two or three pages in my gallery with pictures.Please honor our service men and women by picking up a few pictures and putting them in your gallery...

Let these these pictures be reminders of why we are all here and safe with our freedom.As you look at the pictures always say a prayer in honor for all our US Soldiers.You can pick out as many and any picture with the warriors heart who calls out to you.

I also have a picture of my uncles war pony. Her name is Winter moon. The first bird who claims her can pick up her picture and take her home with with you.
There are also pictures from the artists from my tribe. You can pick those up too.

Well it's the end of my trail as your King War Chief.
May the Great Spirit Watch over you...

Love
Panther

I hope you are having a great day!! Still rainy and windy up here but the wind is not as bad today! Good thing cause lots of people lost power. There are tons of trees up here and a lot of them came down. Branches too. Mom's store was the only one with power so there were lots of people shopping there yesterday. They told mom that the line for the gas station was out on the street! They were the only ones in the whole town who had working gas pumps!
I'm busy munching on an apple while mom gets my notes done. Mom doesn't have to take anyone anywhere today so we spent the morning playing!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a hug!

  Hi Darlin'
How's my wife-bird today? It is a hot, cloudy day today, with a little chance we might finally have a little rain. It's very dry here, and fire bans are in place in most areas.
We are busy preparing for a fund raiser to help Sweetie get a large cage. She has spent 15 months rehabilitating from the amputation of her leg. Finally, she has learned not to fall from the roof of her current cage, which is too small for her now, and balance well on her perches.
I thought you and I might go camping in the mountains for a few days? We have been very busy with work and family so haven't had much alone time to enjoy ourselves.
We could pack our food and tent and supplies on a pack mule and ride our horses into the BC mountains. The view is awesome and so quiet. Lots to do, hiking, fishing and swimming in clear, clean lakes and rivers. The perfect get away trip.
I better go get us some coffee, we have lots of planning to do!

love you forever

I hope you had a wonderful day! We are very late getting notes out today. Mom took everyone to work this morning and then went to sleep for a while. We have been doing some chores and still have the kitchen to clean up. The dining room has to be mopped also since Jennifer dropped a coke on the floor!
Stayed cloudy here all day but only a bit of rain. It is suppose to really storm tomorrow. mom is driving Jennifer down to visit her dad. He just got back from Florida so she is going to spend some time with him this weekend.
Dad will be home in the morning for another 34 hour break. He was delivering in Spokane and did some local work for them so he gets to spend the weekend with us.
Mom is working all weekend so they won't be going anywhere.

  Hi Ms. BB
Thanks for cracking the nuts for me and glad your joining me!
Beautiful day here and I got a bath and a sunbath both. I saw a big bird in the sky but mom said it was a helicopter. LOL. There is a window above my play gym that sits right beside my condo. Mom has the window sill all cleaned off just for me …well it might be because of me LOL. I like to get up there in the morning when the sun is shining in after I eat my breakfast. I leave out little noises as I watch the wild birds and just to see the pretty day. Once the sun isn’t as bright I usually get on my play gym and begin the day with mom then helping her. “Our paths may change as life goes on but the bond between friends remain ever strong.” Left a vote for you my friend~ hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  HI Ms BB!!!
Here is another good place to go if you like ice cream...Pecked a V4U...Today for my campaign blog I will be talking about the Casino Theatre and Village Malt Shoppe Mt.Pocono,Pa..It was originally a one story 1922 Casino building used as a dance hall & night club which was converted to a movie theatre after being purchased by a woman from Stroudsburg...Then it was sold in 1974 to three couples one by the name of Mr.& Mrs. George Litz..The families renovated & modernized the vintage structure opening the business 4/4/1975..Less than a year after the grand opening the structure burned to the ground..The new building opened 4 months later 7/1976.A new single screen movie theatre & new ice cream parlor.The new building was built with a slanted floor allowing a modern movie-going experience instead of the neck-craning involved when watching a film from a flat floor..Within a few years the Litzes bought out their partners and began expanding the operation.Today after more than 30 yrs.the Litz Family still own and operate the Casino which is in its second generation. The Casino is now a 2 screen movie house & ice cream shop. It shows first run movies plus still features an old fashioned soda fountain with many flavors of ice cream as well. Plus the Movie Theatre & Malt Shop they added a Sandwich Restaurant, Children's Arcade, Miniature Golf Operation and a Gift Shop with the 1950's theme of decor featuring nostalgia & retro items were added with items featuring Betty Boop, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, I Love Lucy & other Icons of the 1950's...Well my friends I do hope this might also be something you would like to see while visiting in the Poconos...Have a nice Friday...Thank you all again for voting for me everyday...I certainly do appreciate it...Many wing hugs....CYDNEY :o)

Dad, Uncle Geno and I had a fun day full of laughter and feisty fun.

Dad n Uncle Geno went to a special showing of Jean-Luc Goddard's "CONTEMPT" from 1963.
Dad enjoyed the visual style, but neither of them liked the film very much.

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still very pretty here and only in the 80's. Rain is suppose to come back for the weekend and we sure could use it! We are not use to being so dry for so long. Everything is yellow and I want it to be green again!
We are getting laundry done today. Mom has to work tonight but she'll have Friday night off. She is going to the library later to get me more story books and she will see what movies they have in. Friday movie night is my favorite! Even if the movie isn't good I'll still have popcorn!
Enjoy the day and I hope you get to do lots of fun things!

  Hi Ms BB
There is plenty of cake and ice cream so just help your self. Thanks for all the hatchday wishes!! Today was another cool (69) day and cloudy so I didn’t get a sunbath today or yesterday either. Hoping maybe tomorrow will be nicer. Our company left today and now the household is back to normal. I was a bit wound and pestered and spent more time in my condo then normal at first. Finally I was more my normal self and would sit with our company but also spent time on my play gym and ate too so I was left out to play lots more. I had the company convinced by the time they left that I was just the perfect fid and a real sweetie. “Our paths may change as life goes on but the bond between friends remain ever strong.” Left a vote for you my friend~ hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Pecked a V4U...Today my campaign blog will about the Houdini Museum..The Houdini Museum was established in 1988 at Scranton, Pa. It is in a turn-of-the-20thcentury building that has been entirely renovated.Houdini performed in Scranton and did several special challenges there. His brother, Hardeen, also appeared in Scranton and in its sister city, Wilkes Barre. Documents & letters attesting to this are on display at the museum & on its website. Houdini, performed at the Poll Theater for S.Z.Poll in Scranton, that was part of the Keith-Albee-Orpheum Circut at the time. This would become the RKO Movies Circut. The Houdini Tour, Show & Museum attraction is one of Scranton's most popular things to do and is highly rated. Stories about the Museum and its performers have been featured in recent years on television shows throughout the world. The live show at the Museum includes two of the best, nationally known magicians, Dorothy Dietrich & John Bravo(aka Ray Carter & Dick Brooks). The Houdini Museum covers Houdini's career and facts about Houdini. The Houdini Museum has national & international significance, especially since the tragic fire of an exhibit in Niagara Falls in May 1995. A part of the exhibit was on display for 13 years at the Magic Towne House in New York City. The Houdini Museum features memorabilia, artifacts, mannequins and films of the master magician. The Houdini Tour also includes a magic show as part of the tour...This is another point of interest to see while visiting the Pocono Region..Thank you every birdie who continue to vote for me everyday..I appreciate it very much...Have a great Tuesday....Many wing hugs to you...CYDNEY :o)

  HI Ms BB!!!
Pecked a V4U..I bet that tank will get that critter..Today I will be talking about the Pocono Snake & Animal Farm, Marshalls Creek....Jack Lowris founder of the long-time Pocono attraction, was a police officer in New Jersey who was fascinated with snakes..He decided to open a rattlesnake building & Lowris made his dream come true in 1969 when he built a world of snakes, monkeys, birds and other exotic animals in Marshalls Creek..With more than 100 reptiles & animals to care for the workers at Pocono Snakes & Animal farm keep a tight schedule.. The workers have a strict routine every morning they cut up fresh fruits to feed the animals and fill bottles to feed the pigs & goats..They also make sure that each animal is clean & place ready to go for lots of tourists...Walking into the farm is like walking into a jungle with animals that many have seen on television..The farm houses guinea pigs, rabbits, snakes, alligators, monkeys, a bear, wolf, turtles, a leopard, deer, goats, a mountain lion, a bobcat & more..All of the animals here at the farm are donations from the state, individuals and rescues..None of the animals are wild...At the front door desk patrons can purchase food to feed the alligators, monkeys & other animals..The goats can also be fed with a baby bottle filled with milk..Many of the animals are celebrities or known for their unique personalities & amazing stories...Shelly the 150 lb. turtle is a century old..She once appeared on the "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson"...Another amazing story Hemingway a male alligator was found in a New York City apartment & rescued by Animal Planet's own "Animal Cops" before being donated to Pocono Snake & Animal Farm...This is not a big building where they are housed but whenever passing it the parking lot is always crowded..Some people do find this a place of interest while visiting in the Poconos....Hope you all are having a nice Monday...Thank every birdie who does vote for me during my campaign to be BOTM...Many wing hugs....CYDNEY :o)

  Hello BB~
I hope your day is going great! No more red around the sun today. The wind is blowing in from the coast and it cleared the air out! Wish they could figure out a way to help the people on the East side of the state! If they get wind to clear out the air, it's going to fan the fires and make it worse. They are talking about just letting the fires burn out and that could take a few months! They lost 2 fruit processing plants over there and are trying to figure out how to get the apples to market. I suppose it means my apples will cost more but there is no way around that. Maybe they can find some plants in Idaho since it's not very far away from there. Guess all the people at the plants in Eastern Washington won't have jobs now. It's going to take a very long time to rebuild them. This whole situation is just so sad and losing 3 firefighters makes even sadder.
I took 2 showers yesterday and am very fluffy today! Mom is praying the moulting is done! She is starting to get nervous that I will turn into a naked bird!hahahahahaha I don't have a bare spot on me but mom has to worry anyway. She just a mom and that's what they do!!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect!

It's Popeye.
Ooooo, rib bones. I'll be right over. Got any of Little Bit's Best Root Beer left?
There's another critter that dad is trying to catch. He's got to be big and hides behind the entertainment center. Dad can't get back there without taking everything off of the entertainment center. He's going to get some really big traps and then toss some "Mouse Magic" behind the center. Hopefully that will flush him out so dad can catch him.
Yesterday afternoon dad worked on the two way radio speakers in his car.
Today will be clear, with a high of 92 and a low of 67.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Hi Mrs. BB
It's Popeye.
I've already contacted Seal Team 6. They're on their way with flame throwers.
We thought that our Saturday was going to be peaceful, but NOOOOOO! Dad moved us all out into the kitchen while he cleaned up our room. He used that horrid sucking machine a lot. He cranked up the music but we could still hear that vile monster. And, to make matters worse, mom cleaned our cages while we were in the kitchen. Yesterday was a double whammy! But ya know, our room does look kinda nice.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 90 and a low of 68. At least the nights are cool.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Morning Ms BB and Mr Sky-love from Jenny
...you two are naturals, ya both come from good families, we love daddy Frank and momma Deb! Also you are both good looking birds! I have loved you since we first met Big Baby, and not just because you are my favorite mixologist, it is just because you are such a nice lady, and you have always treated me nicely! What a great Beach Milonga last night, I wish we could have stayed longer, and I'm afraid I did not make it to everybody to say hello! Dad is not like all of your parents, because of Congestive Heart Failure and COPD, his body does not process enough air and oxygen to sustain muscle strength, therefore he gets so tired so easily! We only had minimal problems with the BC last night, and we just loved seeing all our dear friends at the Beach, thanks again Kiddo, SP, Taz, Dj and Lizzie, and sweet Sam and the Scruffy Birds Band, job well done! Have a great Sunday dear BC friends, our Bears and Cubs won yesterday, and the Cheeseheads play today! Our love to all in your happy hut, see ya tomorrow...

Love and hugs forever, Jenny the Jack lover, & our Dallas family

PS~I did not rob all the banks I have been accused of, just most of them, LOL...

You walk through and you remember your childhood or something your Grandparents may have had...There is a wonderful gift shop downstairs...Something for everyone...What is sold are duplicates of what is in the museum, antiques, NASCAR items..Ed Stanat is the owner..He is such a wonderful man and a great storyteller...He takes you through his museum and tells you about each item, how he acquired something or how he fell in love with this particular item....Ed is now focused exclusively on his toys over 20,000 collected over 40 years....Although his museum does still feature an elaborate toy and collectible tribute to Dale Earnhardt Sr....For tomorrow I will check and see what else that you might like would be in that same area also..Hope you all are having a nice Saturday...Thank you every birdie for stopping by with your vote for me to be BOTM..I certainly appreciate everyone..Many hugs to you...CYDNEY :o)

  Hello BB~
I hope you guys are enjoying the day! We had a red ring around the sun this morning. Everyone was talking about it and trying to figure out what caused it when mom reminded them that there are huge fires over the mountain. It was pretty but it is so sad to think about what those people are going through!
Lots of Christmas lights and outdoor Christmas decor showed up last night! Yep! We are all ready for Christmas, right? I am thinking of making my own holiday to celebrate Parrots! I haven't figured out all the details yet but I know I'm going to have lots of food involved with it! I think the parronts should give the parrots presents too!! I'll work it all out!!
Enjoy the day!!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Saturday Flitzer the Birthday Bird
Hello dear friends.
Thank you So Much for all the HatchDay Wishes....it's great to be 7.
It was such a great day that I started doing my 'happy squawk' in the evening and wouldn't stop for a long time. Daddy laughed and laughed.
- - -
Dad gave me a happy day filled with treats and surprises. I even got Lemon Sherbet for a yummy birthday dessert.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Uncle Geno hosted another Marilyn Monroe Move Night on Thursday. They watched:
"The River of No Return" (1954) which was fun.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Dad and Uncle Geno went to the theater to see a German Film called "PHOENIX".
Dad called it his favorite film of the year so far. Sadly some of our friends have fear of subtitles - isn't that silly. Many miss out on such good films this way.

Thanks again for your gifts and wishes. ~Wings Up~

Come visit me, Mario Adler & Flitzer.

  Hello BB~
I hope you are having a perfect kind of day! I just finished some apple, cinnamon, pecan oatmeal! I must say I think this is my favorite so far! I like all the oatmeal that mom makes but the pecans were a surprise!
The rain storm we had yesterday did not help with the fire on the other side of the mountain. I guess it made it worse since it caused more wind. I feel so bad for all those people.
Mom went back to work last night and of course there was tons of work waiting for her. There is a back up person but she is in the garden and they don't want her to do anything but the garden. Kind of makes it useless to have a back up if they are not going to be able to do the work! Mom will catch up eventually.
Believe it or not, they already have the Christmas jammies out for the little ones. Mom says the baby that can wear it has not even been born yet! Talk about planning ahead! The Halloween ones are out too and all the Autumn decor. That stuff is nice to look at but I don't think anyone is ready to think about Christmas yet.
Enjoy the day!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hey BB
Thank you for liking my skin brother Circling Eagles poem...Theres a picture of him in my gallery. The young boy dancing in a powwow.
During this time period he wrote the poem.
Without even thinking of what he would write about. His heart opened up and all his feelings came out...
When the powwows starting turning commercial a lot of our friends from different tribes and reservations from different states slowly went away.
The saddness ripped through everyones hearts and it felt like our hearts where being ripped out of all of us...
Alot of these youngsters grew up together meeting at Powwows and sitting on the bleachers on cold nights sharing blankets and drinking hot chocolate and eating frybread together...

Elders from different tribes would sit together and talk about thier traditions and share coffee and frybread and tell stories.

When everyone got up to dance in the sacred circle there was a presence of love and pride so strong it was overwhelming in a good way.
Now the only real traditional powwows are held on our reservations.
We all miss those days so much.We know it will never be the same.

This weekend I will be in lockdown while my mommy and daddy go house hunting.
I probably won't be back until Monday...

Happy TGIF
Love your King War Chief
Panther

  Pimer looks up at the shuttle taking off
Hi, Ms BB, Sky. Can ya quit laughing long enough to let me tell ya that Nov. would be great at the KB? *He watches as the two big birds laugh even harder. He shakes his head and mutters, "Wish Ipo woulda waited for me."
After he takes off to home, the two big birds start laughing hard again. They may think about how sorry they are for Pimer, but they can't stop laughing at the whole situation.
