  Hi Mrs BB!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we will be making a shredder toy that looks like a cupcake. You will need,

- A treat cup
- Cupcake papers
- Beads
- Safe stringing material

Start by taking your string and knotting the bottom. Take your treat cup, poke a hole in the bottom, and string that on facing up. Now take beads, and string them on until you have beads almost to the top of the cup. Take your cupcake papers, and cut the sides into strips and poke holes in the middle. Now we are going to be making a puff on top. String on a paper facing down, then one facing up, then one facing down, and so on until you have a puff that looks like frosting. Now take some beads, string them on, and top it off with a bigger red bead. Tie a loop, and you're done!

When mom starting making this toy tonight, it was supposed to turn out like a bowl of ice cream. But she thought it looked a lot more like a cupcake and left it that way. There is a picture in my gallery!

Thanks for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

  Hey BB,
Yeah it only sounded like a Froggy. Glad no Froggy is missing.


Mom came home sick this morning. After 1 hour of work she went to the Urgent Clinic about 10 miles away on Kapahulu Avenue and they told her she was contagious! Ooh no!! So she got the antibiotics and they are the size of horse pills! Yuck!!

So mom won't go back to work till Monday as it will take awhile for the meds to kick in.

So she's mine for 4 days, but all she wants to do is sleep. She's getting old I tell ya.

Mom has a bacteria thingy along with a touch of bronchitis. Sounds like a bad mixture if you ask me.

Here's a vote for you, hope your day is going great.

Love,

Laka

Come visit me, Angel Sallykins with her pretty red hat on, Angel Pookie says on guard you scoundrel !!! & Laka with her pink Lehua flower hat on.

  Hello BB~
Sugar checks the fridge to see if there is any butter there! Nope! She likes corn bread just fine without it! She thanks BB for the lovely corn bread and finds them some juice to wash it down!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! I can't believe I'm BOTD! I am so excited and so grateful to all my friends here. It is still such an honor to be picked from all the awesome birds here to have a day in the spotlight!
We have had a crazy morning already! It was pretty loud last night since they were paving the road across the street. Who knew that paving included pounding? I didn't! It was the stream roller I guess! Mom cranked the radio up but you could still feel a bit of shaking. I squawked a few times and Merlin spent most of the night in the window watching it all! McKenzie slept through it all!! They were done by 4 am but I think I'll be grabbing a nap later!
We have a wetland that runs the length of the complex. It is fenced in but it's just a plank fence and not totally to the ground. When mom was walking McKenzie this morning, McKenzie stuck her head under the fence that encloses the wetland and pulled out a Mole! Thank goodness mom has been working on "drop" with her because when mom screamed, she dropped it! The poor thing was flailing around and so scared! McKenzie knew she had done something bad cause she flattened out on the walkway and looked guiltily at mom!
Mom locked McKenzie in the car and grabbed the car towel. She picked up the little Mole and checked him out. Thankfully he wasn't hurt! He kept flailing and growled at mom! Mom crawled against the fence and found his hole and set him down there. He dug a little and then popped back down in the hole. Mom told McKenzie that there will be no hunting allowed! We read later on that coyotes dig up moles for food. Dad thinks any kind of dog would do it and that is probably true. Obviously there will be no more walking anywhere near the fence! I don't think moms heart could take another incident like that!hahahahaha She was so scared that McKenzie had killed it.
Come on over to the castle today! Mikey and Kacey have had Lizzy and Chipper prepare a wonderful luncheon for us! I can't wait to see you!!!
Enjoy your day!

  Off to BC Mountains
Sky and BB mount up and lead the pack horses down the winding trail out of the KB towards the heavily forested trail to the Mountains. The horse whinny happily, glad to be moving at last after along winter of grazing. Sky rides first with BB close beside him. He checks out the trail ahead for danger from fallen rocks, trees or wild beasts that lurk in the forest.
The sun is bright, the breeze soft and warm, hinting of hotter days to come. The horses stop at a river crossing for a drink, as SKY & BB get off to stretch their legs. They ground hitch the horses and check out the area.
"Why don't we stop here and set up camp today?" BB suggests. Sky loves the idea and agrees.

Soon the horses are unloaded, Sky is busily setting up the tent as BB gathers some wood to start the fire to cook a late lunch. Sky can't wait for the fire to be ready, he's hungry already for some of BB's awesome grub. He hurries to get done and ties their food into a net and pulls it on a rope up into a tall oak tree for safety from bears.

Sky helps bring some wood in, and watches as BB starts the steaks over the fire. His mouth waters as the smell floats into his nares. He is so glad they are taking this trip.

Come visit me, SKY, thank you for Jan 17th, 2016 BOTD, Little Angel, JESSE, thank-you for BOTD friends! & SWEETIE.

  Thursday Flitzer
Hello. cool morning in Buffalo.

--
Dad busy cleaning, moving things, and getting things changed so men can measure front windows for much-needed replacement. The windows don't open and it gets oppressively hot here in the Summertime.
--
Those Quadruple-Berry Muffins were wonderful the other day. Dad knows how to make me happy from beak to tail.

I was very good for Aunt Maria on grooming day. I did flit across the room for a moment and landed in a plant [yeah - they laughed at me], but after that, I was still and patient for the grooming.

Make it a wonderful day

  Hi Mrs BB!
Hi Everybirdie! I am so sorry for not blogging yesterday. Mom had a very bad headache and couldn't keep her eyes open. But, I am happy to report that when she woke up this morning she felt just fine! To make up for not blogging last night, we will be making two toys tonight. For the first toy you will need,

- Cupcake papers (for small/medium birds) or mini cupcake papers (for extra small birds) or coffee filters (for large birds)
- Beads
- Safe stringing material

Take your string and tie a knot at the bottom. String on a bead, and take 3-4 cupcake papers or coffee filters, poke holes in the center, and string them on. String on another bead, and then more papers. Keep stringing on the beads and papers until it reaches your desired size. Then finish off by stringing a bead on top, and tying a loop.

For the next toy you will need,

- Wood (what ever size and type is right for your bird)
- Beads
- Safe stringing material
- OPTIONAL: a bell

Take your string and tie a knot at the bottom. If you are using a bell, tie the knot on the bell. String on a piece of wood, then a bead, then another piece of wood, then another bead, and so on until it reaches the desired size. Finished it off by adding a bead to the top and tying a loop.

Both of these are very simple, but fun to play with! The wooden toy was made for Paris using balsa, and the cupcake paper toy will be for one of the conures. There are pictures of both toys in my gallery. (Mom apologizes for the hideous colors of the cupcake paper toy. She had no pretty colors!)

Thank you so much for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

  Hello BB~
I hope you had a wonderful day! We did the chores we never got done yesterday. Kind of boring but mom put Minions on for me while she was cleaning the kitchen! I love those squeaky yellow guys!
McKenzie was a bit rowdy this afternoon. She thinks that the cat is going to play with her like another puppy would but we all know that is not going to happen. He sits and whacks at her and whines for mom to come pick him up. I think he is doing that on purpose to that mom will pick him up. He certainly could get up on something, like he usually does, but I think he just wants mom to rescue him!
The road construction is continuing at night. The trucks just stared showing up. Mom put the radio on a bit louder last night so we wouldn't have to listen to the beeping when the trucks back up. Mom was hoping they would be farther along at this point. They still have not paved across the street from us so maybe tonight. Then they will start tearing up our side of the street! The parts they have finished do look very nice and are really smooth to drive on!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! }

  Breakfast on the Sleeping Perch
BB grins happily as she spies SKY with their breakfast. She stretches once more and hops off the sleeping perch. SKY places the tray on the small table near their perch and kisses BB good morning.
"I was thinking more about your suggestion of a trip into the BC mountains for a camping trip"
"YES, and.." BB looks at SKY with a whimsical expression on her face
"Let's do it. We can take the horses,and a couple pack horses. Pack the tent and supplies and spend some well needed time alone together. The KB will do fine with us gone for a little while.I have been away a very long time. We need time to talk, and enjoy ourselves once more!"
"OK, let's do it" BB says sipping the hot, black coffee a wide smile crossing her face. She looks at SKY for a moment,
"I think this trip will be great. Perfect time of year with all the wild flowers blossoming,"
"Yes, it will be breath-taking up in the mountains. We can fish, hike, and explore to our hearts content." SKY adds with a grin
The two enjoy their breakfast together, sipping hot coffee and chatting as they make their plans for the trip. BB will pack the food, SKY get the horses and camp equipment ready. Working together they should be able to get an early start on their trail today! Sky takes out a note pad and write a list of what he needs and finishes breakfast with one last donut.
BB takes the tray back to the kitchen and begins to pack supplies,a s SKY wanders off to the barn to round up the horses and get the tack ready and camp supplies loaded onto the pack horses.
"This trip is going to be so much fun" Sky whistles as he works happy to be hitting the trail with his sweetheart at his side once more

  Hello BB~
I hope you had a wonderful day! We had lots of plans for today but nothing got done. Mom was on the phone with various family members until 3 pm. Then she had to go pick Ian up, then Jennifer up, get dinner and clean up the kitchen! Not a very exciting day but I did get to yell hello to the family!
Mom has 2 younger brothers. One lives in Arizona and the other lives in California. They and their families are going to drive up to Portland Oregon this summer and want mom and her sister to meet them there. Portland is only 2 hours south of us. As usual with families, no one can decide on a date. The boys want to stay down there for a few days but mom and her sister have us pets to take care of so they only want to go for the day. Moms sister and her youngest brothers wife can only be together for a few hours before they are at each others throats!hahahahahaha Gotta love family!
I hope you enjoy your evening!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love ya ~ Sugar ♥

  Good morning my darling BB
Sky smiles happily as he stretches his wings and watches BB sleeping quietly on their sleeping perch. She looks so beautiful and peaceful, a small smile on her pretty face. He climbs off the perch care not to wake her.
The sun is warmly shining in the distant east as he peeks out of the movie tent door. He heads for the food tent to prepare BB's coffee and a wonderful surprise breakfast. He makes certain not to make too much noise as he works. He hears the others stirring as he hums quietly to himself.
The coffee is brewing and the tray is almost perfect when he suddenly decides he needs a flower for the tray. He rushes out the door and off towards the BC gardens to pick a rose for the vase.

Finding the perfect flower he waddles quickly back to the kitchen. Placing the flower into the small crystal vase he checks his handy work and pours the 2 coffee mugs. Placing everything safely on the tray as as not to spill a drop, he carries it towards the movie tent. HE passes Cookie on his way there. He smiles a warm good morning and goes on.
BB is just waking when SKY arrives next to the sleeping perch. She grins happily when she sees SKY, then the tray of food--breakfast on the perch. She kisses SKY on the top of his red head and giggles, "For me?"
Sky grins in return, "for MY Queen of hearts"

  Hello BB~
We should definately start with 4's. Mom played all the time when she was a kid!
I did not get many notes out yesterday just because we ran out of time! Actually, it's all moms fault since she fell asleep when she got home from work! Guess she was tired but it sure did put us behind! We managed to get the stuff done that needed to get done but it was time for her to go to bed after that! She only has one more night to work and then we get our weekend!
Really nothing exciting going on. Jennifer is not feeling well so McKenzie and I are trying to be quite so she can sleep! Merlin sleeps all day anyway so it's no big deal for him! I'm doing pretty good but McKenzie doesn't understand quiet yet.
I hope your day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello BB~
I hope you are having a great day. Cool, wet and windy here. Mom had to put the heat back up a bit in the bedroom to make it nice and cozy for me! Perhaps she should not have put away all that winter stuff!Hehehehehehe It was like daring Mother Nature to bring back the cold!
They have been repaving in my neighborhood. They got onto my street last night. They took a big backhoe and smashed the cement divider that goes down the center of the street! It was noisy but over quickly! They just smashed it and swept it up. Now there is just a yellow line there. Guess they'll be back after the weekend to pave it. Mom left for work right after they did it and she said it runs all the way up to the freeway~about a mile up the street! They seem to be moving pretty quickly!!
I hope the day is just fabulous!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Good morning my sweet Mrs BB
Sky and BB sit quietly a long while, holding wings as they watch the water and toss popcorn to the ducks.
"BB, let's go back and take the horses for a ride" Sky says smiling happily at BB
"OK, sounds like fun. I miss riding with you" BB replies giving SKY little kiss on the beak
The two walk slowly back up the path towards the KB. SKY fills BB in on all that is happening at home in the Rescue. Momma Deb is doing a lot of public education through FB right now besides helping Parronts one on one deal with problem behavior in their fids. It is a lot of work, but she love sit
BB tells SKY about the KB activities he'd missed while he was away. The Milongas and parties he had missed makes him so sad. He always loved these events, and taking his darling BB there with him. He hopes BC is improving so he will be able to be with her again. Their anniversary is coming soon, and he'd hate to be forced off for that.
SKY stops to pick BB a few more flowers for her bouquet and bowing, hands them to her with a wave of his wing, like a Knight bowing to the Queen. To SKY BB is the Queen of his heart forever. Hi One True Love!
Arriving at the KB SKY happily views all the many changes and improvements made since his last visit there. He excitedly glimpses his mount, Chief. Chief sees SKY and lets out a happy whiny, before racing for the fence to meet them as they arrive at the barn.
BB laughs as the two get re-united. The mini horse whining happily, and SKY excitedly petting and hugging his powerful neck. He sure has missed BC and all his many friends. SKY opens the paddock gate and BB goes in, and they lock the gate tightly behind them. Sky whistles for Dancer and she appears around the side of the barn, tossing her mane eagerly. The horses all look great and well groomed. Somebirdie has done an awesome job caring for them in his absence.
Sky and BB head into the tack-room, picking up their gear, they quickly saddle-up and mount their fiesty steeds. BB leads off, followed closely by SKY who doesn't want to let BB out of sight now he's finally able to be back on BC.

Hello.
A nice week here in Buffalo - warmer, with a little rain. Now it's going to be cooler, but not too bad.
--
Dad is making preparations for his May trip to see Grandma in Kentucky. He will be there for Mother's Day and on Derby Day as well. [I'm suggesting a flowered hat, but he doesn't like the idea].
When Grandma calls on Sunday I call to her, sometimes making their conversation hard to hear.
"I'm here, Grandma, it's me, Flitzer". She often wonders how Dad can live with me. Ha-Ha.
--
Aunt Kathy, the bird-sitter will be checking in on me, while Dad is away.
Last time, we were both miserable to each other. Dad is asking me to PLEASE TRY and be good. We shall see...

  Hi Mrs BB!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we are going to make little balls made out of toilet paper or paper towel rolls. You will need,

- A toilet paper or paper towel roll
- A treat

Take your roll, and cut four rings off of it. The rings can be what ever thickness you'd like, but we tend to cut ours a bit on the thick side. Start by taking two of the rings and sticking one inside of the other, so that it forms an X. Take a third ring, and slip it over the other two. Now you should add a treat. Finally, take the fourth ring and slip that over the others, and you're done!

These are super fun the play with. I love them! There is a picture in my gallery.

  Good morning my sweet Mrs BB
Sky takes BB's wing in his as they head down the board walk towards the lake together. The warm spring sun feels so good, as they walk along in silencer a while. Sky smiles happily as he walks next to BB. He has missed being with her so very much. Suddenly BB turns to look up at SKY. She kisses him softly on his beak, wrapping her wings around his red shoulders. Sky grins nd hugs her close.
They stand there for along while just holding one another close. Enjoying being together again. Without a word, they begin to walk along the path again, wings wrapped around one another. They stop to admire the flowers hat are beginning to blossom along the boardwalk. Sky picks a small bouquet and hands it to BB with a kiss.
They reach the lake and find a sheltered spot to sit and begin tossing popcorn to the hungry mallard ducks swimming near by. The sun bounces off the water like diamonds and sapphires.
"THIS is what I missed. The simple moments together." SKY hugs BB close as they watch the ducks. Neither speaks, afraid the moment will suddenly end.

  Hello Mrs BB
Now, before you bite me, I got to explain my rather long absence my dear wife-bird. BC kept giving Momma Deb viruses on her computer. Only place she'd get malware notices, virus block notices etc. Well, she refused to wreck another computer to BC. We figure it was BC that damaged her other one. We have a new computer and have decided to try BC and see what happens. Little Angel has visited Dixie a few days without issues so I hope to be back again, as I wanted always to be--with you my love.
I have missed you terribly and although I am always on FB I have not been able to see my true love at all these past long, lonely months.
I read somewhere that maybe i5 no longer owns BC so maybe it will improve. I hope so. I have missed so much and it is time I get back involved with my friends.
I love you and think of you always but thought is not good. I want to be able to share life and adventures with you as we once did.
How about we take a walk and talk, it's been a very long, long time

Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we are making a cup holder shredder toy. You will need,

- A paper cup holder
- Paper treat cups
- Coffee filters
- A small paper plate
- Cupcake papers
- Finger traps
- A bead
- Safe string material

Take your cup holder, and start by putting a coffee filter in each one of the cup compartments. Next take you treat cups, and push one of those into each compartment (you may have to force them in to fit). Then stick a coffee filter in each one of the treat cups. Next, poke a hole in the middle of the cup holder, take a piece of string and knot it at the end, and stick it through the hole you made (so that the knot is on the bottom, and the string is sticking out the top part). On that string, string on your paper plate, a few coffee filters, a few cupcake papers, three finger traps, and a bead, then knot it. Near the top of the cup holder, poke a hole, then make a loop with your string, and thread the loop through that hole.

Mom makes these for me all the time. I LOVE them! There is a picture in my gallery! (:

  Hello BB~
I hope you are having a great day! It's only 80 here today so that is tolerable! There is a nice breeze and mom has the window open so I'm enjoying that. My cage was all cleaned out again this morning so I've been working on redecorating.
McKenzie had an upset tummy this morning. Ian bought her a rawhide bone at Petco yesterday and it did not agree with her. Mom will stick with the Dingo bones since they have never upset her tummy. Petco only had the tiny Dingo bones so mom will pick up the more appropriate sized ones at her work. She is feeling fine now and wants to eat everything in sight! Just like normal!hehehehehe
We have been doing chores most of the day. Mom washed the winter jackets and is going to hang them in the hall closet. She got the stove scrubbed and wants to get some things done in her bedroom later. She will have to wait for Jennifer to get home so that she can occupy McKenzie while mom and I go in the bedroom. If McKenzie is in the bedroom you have to watch her all the time because she likes to grab books and try to chew them up! That is a huge NO NO in this house! I don't get to do it so she can't either!
I hope the day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we are making a cute little foot toy. You will need,

- A piece of wood
- 2 finger traps
- Mini cupcake papers
- 2 beads
- Safe stringing material

Take your string and tie a knot at the end, then string on a bead. Take a finger trap, cut it in half, poke a hole in the middle of each half, and then string them on, crossing them so that they form an X. Flatten out a cupcake paper, poke a hole in the center, and string that on. Now string on your piece of wood, then another flattened out cupcake paper. Take another finger trap, cut it in half, and string it on the same way as the first. Now string on another bead, knot it, and you're done!

I hope your day was wonderful! Still warm up here. We are not use to being in the upper 80's this time of the year. It's not so bad in the apartment. Mom has the windows open and the fan going so we are all comfortable. Suppose to go back to our normal 60's tomorrow. Lots of mosquito's out tonight. I wonder if it gets cooler again if it will kill them off??
I would love to start in the booth on May 16th!!! I'll come up with something fun for us to do! Thanks!
Dad is in Yuma. He was in Indio CA yesterday and saw a stray dog. She was afraid of everyone so dad bought her a roast beef sandwich and threw it over to where she was. He asked the guy in the store to call the ASPCA and let them know she was there. She had a collar on so maybe she just got lost. I hope it's not another "dump the dog" like with our McKenzie.
I hope your evening is just perfect!

  Hello BB~
I hope you are having a wonderful day.
Mom is having one of those days where she can not get anything done! I blame it all on the dog!hehehehehe Mom says there is blame to share!
I have been throwing pieces of wood out to McKenzie and the dork tries to eat them!! Mom asked me to stop it but I don't think it's my fault if the dog is a dope!
When I got bored with that game I decided it was time to rip the paper up on the bottom of the cage. That always gets the puppy running!! I think she wants to rip paper up also. Mom finally had to put her on the leash to keep her away from my cage. Merlin started howling for food so mom filled up his dry food bowl. He took a few bites and then walked over and started whacking the dog. Guess he was jealous because McKenzie was paying attention to me! The turtles even got into it by pushing their filter over!! Mom said something about needing a vacation!hehehehehehe
Another beautiful day here. Suppose to be nice again tomorrow. I like having the window open and all the sunshine! I hope you have an awesome day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

Hi Ms BB. Love your Derby Hat

-
A perfectly wonderful weekend here in Buffalo.
Dad took me outside in the Travel Cage both Saturday and Sunday.
It was great seeing the outdoors and feeling the sun. We took a walk and visited friends in the neighborhood.
- - -
The Spring Milonga was fun, but Dad had to step away before the end, that's why I seemed silent for a while.

  Hi Mrs BB!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we are making paper plate tacos. You will need,

- A paper plate (a full sized one for a bigger bird or a mini one for a small bird)
- Safe stringing material
- Cupcake papers
- Wood slats
- Finger Traps
- Crinkle paper
- A bead

Fold your paper plate in half, and poke a hole through the middle. String a piece of rope through the hole, and knot it on one side. Take a few cupcake papers, flatten them, poke a hole in the center, and then string them on the side of string that is not knotted. Then string on a wooden slat, and poke a hole in the center of two finger traps, and string them on. Then string on a smaller wood piece, a bead, and then knot that side of the rope. Then poke a hole near the top of the plate, make a loop with rope, and string the loop through that hole. Now take crinkle paper and fill the middle of the plate, make sure that it is sticking out of the sides too!

These are really fun to destroy! There is a picture in my gallery!

Thanks for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

  Hi Mrs BB!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we will be making seagrass mat swings. You will need,

- A seagrass mat
- Plastic chain (either new, or from an old swing)
- Plastic links
- Straw beads
- An SS ring (or you could use a plastic link instead)

Take your seagrass mat, and cut it to what ever size you need for your bird. Take four stands of plastic chain, and put a link at the bottom of each one. Using the links on the bottom of each chain, hook a chain on each corner of the mat. Once they are hooked on, take a straw bead and use it to cover the opening on each link. Now take your SS ring (or plastic link if you prefer), and connect all of the pieces of chain at the top onto it. If you are using a ring, make sure you close it really well so there is no gap, and if you are using a link, cover the opening with a straw bead. After that you're done! You can hang beads off the chain or a toy in the middle if you'd like.

Paris loves his little swing! We also have a full sized seagrass mat one for the conures, but mom has to make a repair on it as one of the chains went missing. LOL. There is a picture of Perry's little one in my gallery!

Thanks for voting for me!

  Happy Saturday from Flitzer's Dad
Flitzer's Dad here with the tale [tale] of an (almost) lost bird
- - - - - - - - - - -
The house got quiet - and I couldn't locate Flitzer. I looked everywhere, calling his name.
No sound. No response
--
I know he had been in the video cabinet - as my DVD Sleeve for "THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA" was shredded all over the place.

He did not make any sounds when I called, nor when I rattled the DVDS.

After searching the rest of the house - I started taking out DVDs from the cabinet. For sure he was hiding back there. Keeping perfectly still.

Thank Goodness he's OK - Sometimes it's tough being a Dad!

  Hi Mrs BB!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we are making cupcake foot toys. Mom saw these made for hamsters and guinea pigs on etsy, so she had to make one for us birds! You will need,

- Mini cupcake papers
- 1 bagel
- 1 vine ball
- 1 red or pink bead
- Safe stringing material

Take a short piece of your string, and tie a knot at the bottom. Take a few mini cupcake papers, and poke a small hole in the middle of them, and string them on your rope. Then take a bagel, and string that on so that it sits in the bottom of the cupcake papers. Take a vine ball, a string it on so that it sits on the bagel. Now string your bead on top of the ball, and tie a knot.

(A word of caution: please only give vine balls to your bird with supervision! They are a great toy, but mom worries that a smaller bird could get vine pieces wrapped around their neck if they chew it so that it comes apart. Mom loves to let us play with them, but only with supervision!)

There is a picture of the toy in my gallery!

I hope that mom is home tomorrow night so that I can make it to the Milonga! So I hope to see you guys there. (:

Thanks for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

  Hello BB~
I hope the day is going great! Mom was gone for nearly 2 hours getting dad to the airport. Not a ton of traffic this morning but there is more up near Seattle then there is down here. McKenzie really enjoyed it. She watches planes. Don't know if that is unusual or not but every time one of the big transports come over to land at JBLM, she stops to watch!
She managed to get out of her seatbelt when mom was leaving the airport and came to sit in the front! I don't think she understands that dad is not coming back later!
When mom got home they were starting the pressure washing outside. It was very loud and McKenzie and Merlin got scared. I was just fine! Mom moved us all and we spent an hour waiting for it to be done! Now we have wait for the stairs to be dry so we can put our doormat back out!
You know I would be happy to have another turn in the Kissing Booth. I had such fun there the first time!!
I hope your day is spectacular!! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Ms BB!
Hi Everybirdie! Today we will be making paper cup garland. You will need,

- Paper sauce cups
- Crinkle Paper
- Safe stringing material

Take however many paper sauce cups you'd like to use (we used 7), and poke holes through both sides near the bottom. Take your rope, and tie a loop. Start stringing on the cups, all facing the same way, and when you have them all on finish it off by tying another loop. Now fill all the cups up with crinkle paper. To hang it, put a quick link in each loop and hang it like garland.

This is a favorite of the conures. (: As always, there is a picture of it in my gallery!

Thanks for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

  Hello BB~
I hope you are having a great day! Cool and rainy here. We had to put the heat on for a while so the living room was warm enough for me to come into!
My play cage was a clean when I got up this morning! This always seems to happen on Thursdays! Mom gets up early to take Ian to work and then comes home and cleans my cage! I got some new toys in it and am working to get some decorating done. I have already got a lovely pile of chewed up wood on the bottom of the cage!
I supervised the kitchen clean up this morning and then got some apples and pears. Mom bought the pears at Costco last week and they are just now getting ripe enough to eat! It was pretty good but I still like the apple better.
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's just spectacular!

  Hi Ms BB
Sure, I can do it. If mom can find a KB pic, she'll make one for me and put it in my gallery so your dad can load it onto the page.
Falco went to the vet yesterday at 5:30. They had a cancellation, so mom was able to get her in right away. The Doctor gave her a shot of Baytril, did a gram stain, which was good, weighed her, and said she hasn't lost any weight and has a good blood supply to the injury site. These are all good signs. She sent mom home with an antibiotic and a pain killer. Falco has to take the meds twice a day for 2 weeks. She has an appointment again next Tuesday to see if she's getting better. She put a foam collar on her neck so she can't reach the spot on her leg. The doctor thought it was already beginning to heal, though. Falco acted like she was dying! When doctor put her back in the carrier, she laid on the floor and closed her eyes. Mom got scared, but the doctor said a lot of birds act like that with the collar. It would take a few minutes for her to get used to it, then she'd perch. Well, she was right. By the time they got home, Falco was hanging onto the door of her wingabago, ready to get out of there. Today mom gave her the morning meds without incident. She's hoping it'll be that easy the rest of the time, hahaha! Riiiight!
Mom had a preschool group in dinosaur hall today. One of the kids didn't speak English, and kept wandering away. The rest didn't have that excuse, they just wandered away, haha. Most of them had a parent or grandparent with them, so they got to chase the little dears. Mom gave them the 45 minute tour, which was still too long.
I hope you are having a great day today, getting lots of cuddles and scritches, and enjoying some spring weather. It's in the mid 60s here, according to mom's car thermometer, and nice and sunny. Hugs, Willie

  Hello BB~
I hope you had a great day. It was nice here. Mom and I did chores and laundry. We cleaned out a bunch of drawers in the bathroom. There was some old stuff there that we threw out and then checked our first aid kit to make sure it was filled up. Mom hates it when she needs a band aid and there are none left! Mom went to the market across the street to pick up some food for Merlin and return the movies from yesterday. After that she was home the rest of the day.
Enjoy the evening!!

  Hi Ms BB!
Hi Everybirdie! Today we are going to make a popcorn box toy. You will need,

- A chain or some other stringing material
- A paper popcorn box
- Coffee filters
- A treat
- Safe stringing material
- Wiffle ball
- Paper sauce cups

Take your popcorn box and string it on your chain or rope. Take some coffee filter and start stringing them on the chain into the box, keep adding them on until you get to the top of the box (at some point while adding the filters, throw a treat in there). Take your wiffle ball and string it on the chain, and push it down so that just the top is sticking out of the box. Take some rope, and string it through one of the wiffle ball holes and out through another one (so that the string is coming out of two holes, just like the cupcake paper ball). Take a paper sauce cup, poke a hole in the bottom, and add one on each side of the rope. Tie a knot on each side, but give the string some slack on each side so that the cups can hang down. Do this again on a few more holes on the top, until it looks like enough to you. Then take one more cup, poke a hole on the bottom, and string it facing upwards on the chain. Then add a quick link to the chain, and you're done.

Mom created this earlier, and thought the little cups looked like popcorn. Isn't it cute? She said I get to shred it up tomorrow! There is a picture in my gallery. :)

Thanks for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird
