Sammy's first family was very nice. They had a baby and had to find Sammy a new home. Home #2 was not a happy place and soon Sammy was up for grabs once again. Lucky mommy she said she was in the right place at the right time!

BOTD Honor on 8/23/13 ~ Thank you to all that made this possible! God Bless You!

Hi! My name is INDIANA SAM

I am a Senegal Parrot from Portage, IN.

Sam looks in his mirror and says, "HI PEETIE!"

21 years old   M

Senegal Parrot

Fruit especially grapes, vanilla wafer cookies, peanuts and red pepper Nutri Berries

Dusty's cage, Mommy's shoulder, the kitchen cabinet, the window sill, the condo in Florida, and only in private: my swing - a gift from Daddy!!! I guess he's not so bad!!

Pesky Daddy getting the stick to put me back in my cage. Well, how about Daddy in general - especially when he gets between me and my gal. I get huffy and puffy then!!!

When Mommy sings to me and lets me ride around on her shoulder. She lights up when she talks about me!!! She is fun and likes to play with me and cuddle on the couch at night before night-night time.

I love to sing songs to Mommy and sit in the kitchen cabinet next to the Elvis Cup. It is also fun to freak daddy out when he is trying to relax on the couch with sneak fly-by attacks. I like to tell daddy he is a "Good Boy" and to tell mommy, "I love you" when I am in trouble!!!.

"I'm a pistol, Grandma Stella said!" And, "What the World Needs Now is Love Sweet Love" ... that's my favorite song! I try to sing, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" but mommy starts tearing up everytime I try to sing it. What's up with that?.

  Hi Indi-Sam and Rio,
We will miss you all too. We've made so many friends and have gone through many good times, bad times and even sad times. But we went through it as one big flock and bird family, we got through the hard times by leaning on one another and a comforting word, or a smile would just make our day.

Lord knows my mom would not be where she is right now without all the mom birds and dads support when Sallykins flew to the Rainbow Bridge, and Pookie too.

For all the love and support my mom loves each and everyone of you as we all do.

The love and friendships we have made here could never be found anywhere else in the world and for the BC my mom will be forever grateful.

We will eventually get on board to the new site but it may take awhile as mom only has her tele.

Angel Sallykins and Angel Pookie plays the ukulele to the song "Aloha Oe" which means farewell in Hawaiian. Laka gets up and gingerly does the graceful hula dance to the song.

They all sing along and watch Laka dance ever so gracefully it's a tearful moment for all.

We love you all and will chat again.

Big birdie hugs and kisses from the Hawaiianese gang.

Laka, Polu, Angel Sallykins and Angel Pookie

Come visit me, Angel Sallykins says I Luv-U-Always-N-4 ever! :), Polu Kai says Aloha Oe, till we meet again. :), Angel Pookie says I've had the time of my lifehere & Laka says, Luv-U-All till the end of BC Aloha oe!.

  Hi Indi-Sam,
Hi all!

Our feast for Saturday night at the Castle Luau Party will include: Kalua Pork, Bar-B-Q beef on a stick for those of you who like to pick at your foods. Also baked sketti with lots of cheese, and string cheese.
For those of you who like to get all tangled up in your food. A separate shower just for un-sketti-ing any birdies will be on the Castle grounds close to the buffet table.
We will also have the favorite desserts like pumpkin pie, dutch apple pie, pineapple cake, tapioca pudding and soft swirl ice cream. Make your own concoction at the ice cream table.
Saturday will be a fun day for all and for all who come.

Eat and play till your hearts content and no one will be the wiser. Hammocks and swings will be readily available on the beach side and playground for those of you who need a birdie nap.
Playing and eating is such hard work for us birdies. If you think I’ve missed anything please let me know and I will make it so.

Sunday we will have a semi-disco-prom night for those who wish to brush up on their dancing and boogie oogie oogieing before the actual prom. Only thing is this prom is open to all birdies, past present and future and by all means ALL ANGEL BIRDS are welcome.

So get on your dancing shoes and get down with your bad self! Heeeheeeheeeheee

Love & Disco Hugs,

Your Humble Queen Laka Aolani

  Hi Indi-Sam and Rio!
Laka stands at the mic and addresses every birdie.

Hi everyone and welcome to the Castle Luau Party!!

I would like to thank everyone for their love and support and most of all patients.
It’s been a long time waiting for a month and then another month but you all got
Me here and I thank you from the bottom of my little birdie heart.

I would like to introduce to you all, our new member of the Yamada/Hawaii flock.
This is my young frother Polu Kai, or PK for short. Polu mean blue and Kai means
Ocean in Hawaiian so we have a Blue Ocean bird! Majority of the bird moms says
That he is a boy bird and so we’ll go with that for now till he tells us different.

He is shy and quiet at the beginning but once you get to know him, he’s a chatter
Box.

So, without further adiu, Cookie will you say Grace before we all partake in this huge
Buffet luau?

Cookie steps up to the mic and Laka lowers it down for him as he is slightly shorter
Than her.

Ahem…. Testing testing…..

Dear Lord, we thank you for this day and we appreciate all that you have done for
Us and please let the BC keep running till the wheels fall off, or the sky falls or when
Pigs fly. No offense Pippo and other piggies.

Let us bow our heads and pray…… Lord we thank you for this grub and may we all
Have a great time enjoying ourselves till we can’t eat no more. Queen Laka has also
Invited the shelter birds to partake in the festivities so let’s let them go first, shall we?

The shelter birds line up and make their plates. There is more food than they have seen
In their entire lives.

Queen Laka watches everyone enjoy themselves eating, laughing, talking and jabbering
About everything under the sun. She smiles and says this is my kinda party.

Everyone is welcome to stay and camp over as we will have the bonfire and fireworks later
On tonight. Make some s’mores and roast hot dogs and marshmallows too. Also roast
Some fresh pineapple on a stick has been the new favorite thing.

During the day there will be festive things to do at the beach and on the playground of the
Castle, so stay as long as you like. I’m not going anywhere, so be my guest.

Enjoy the Castle Luau everyone!

Here’s a vote for you.

Love,

Your humble Queen Laka Aolani

  Hey Indi Sam!
Long time no squawk, how have ya been??

Laka gives him, Rio and Momma Debi a big birdie hug.

Mom is still coughing up a storm and now dad can't walk!

Mom is bringing him to the Urgent Care Clinic this morning.

I want to thank you for your votes for me in the quest to get my BOTM Badge.

It's just not fair as I had worked so hard through out the whole month campaigning. Only to find out that the BC was not fixing the site.

Perhaps with every birdies help me and the others like Kacey and Mikey will get our recognition like we should have.

A big Mahalo to everyone for their love and support. The things we birdies hafta do to get things done.

Here's a vote for you as well my sweet friend.

Love,

Laka

  Congrats for BOTD Indy Sam & aunt Debi-Jen Lynn
...there can not be a more deserving and dear sweet friend than you Sam dear! Love is in the eye of the beholder, as they say, and my family holds you very high on our love list! Very few, except maybe Sugar and Eileen and Cookie and aunt Mary even get close! We used to like uncle Art, but he turned out to be a butt hole, he does not seem to have anything nice to say about anybody, and that hurts! We love pretty ladies also, of which aunt Debi is one, but we do not let that dominate our lives, we choose to remain realistic! We woke up to about 5 inches of the white stuff, but the temps are going to be moderate all week long, yippee! It looks to be another stay at home day for dad, he is afraid of falling in the snow and maybe not be able to get back up! I think he is getting a touch of cabin fever, but it will pass soon enough! Happy Presidents Day, we use to have good ones in the past that were worth celebrating! We had a peaceful Valentine Day, lots of phone calls from friends and family, we love phone calls, they make us feel connected with our friends from around the world! Give our Monday love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Love eternally yours from Jenny, Christy, Ms LaLo, Ziggy, and our daddy
