  Hello Everyone! First, we must apologize for not being on here in almost a month! SO much is going on with us here and it has been hard for all of us to find time to blog to our friends who we miss so much! The big news is that we will be moving in a month or so. We will now be stationed at Ft. Hood, Texas. We are looking forward to the move, just not the hassle! We are sorry if we worried any of you! There is just so much to do (including vet check ups for us...yuck!) We will try to be on here as much as we can until we move. If we aren't able to leave individual blogs to all of our friends, we will try to leave a blog on our page! We miss all of you and thank you for supporting us!

Sorry Mom got busy at work again..Grrr. She has yet to convince that Boss of hers to let me come to work with her. We also got another Lovie Citrus. He's not too bad still a baby though he eats solid food but begs me to regurtitate to him. I don't think so! Not my type.

  Hiya Sammy!
Isn't it funny how the simplest little things are fun to play with? Here's my deal- I don't play with my toys. Any bird toy Mom buys me, I almost ignore. I'd rather chew up something of Mom's- preferably something she really likes, so I'm sure to get her attention, heehee. The dining room hutch is good for that. But, come on- put a piece of furniture made of soft, untreated pine in the house and think I won't go for it? Chewing is a part of me! Heeheehee. I do love the treats mom buys me though, some of those are great for a chewing fix. Have a great day, buddy. Here's a vote, and an S.B.H. (Sweet birdie hug).

  `Ü´ SO-oo-oo … It would seem …
… that most everybirdy would like to SEE the sketch that Rio Feather Duster drew of Ruby Francesca Begonia in the sitting room of Suite B-52/56 aboard Titanic. ~~ Well, after a great deal of urging, plying, pressuring, promoting, cajoling, coaxing, beseeching, and finally begging, **Ruby draws in a fresh supply of air** Momma has consented to allowing Mr Rio’s work of art to be posted on my page. H-o-w-e-v-e-r … you will need to take the journey to the very bottom of the page to view his masterpiece, in my Photo Gallery there. (Momma seems to think that it may take some time, if indeed ever, before Daddy will find it there!) ~~ I have been having the time of my life aboard Titanic, meeting Mr Rio Feather Duster, finding true love and romance, and simply being together with him for oodles of time! ~~ I can now promise you though that the end of this adventure will be only a beginning for My Mr Rio ® and I. You may need to forgive us however, if we do not include y’all as intimately as we have thus far in our continuing adventures! I will take my leave for today then, Mr sammy, depositing a Vote of Gratitude for your company on this adventure. And I shall be ‘round again soon with the concluding chapters. Toutes alors, mon ami [Until then, My Featheriend] ...`Ü´ ♥’s ®

  Hiya Sammy!
Mom read a tip for budgies in Bird Talk- give them wet lettuce leaves to encourage playing in the water. So Mom and I both thought- why not a tiel? Now Mom wants to go buy a head of lettuce just for me. It sounds like a lot of fun! You have a great day, Sammy. Here's a vote and a big hug!

  `Ü´Ruby & Her Mr Rio ® on a Titanic Adventure~Pt 5
As the sun sets Rio, Ruby, and Titanic seem to merge into a single force of power and optimism, being lifted…buoyed forward on a magical journey, soaring onward into a night without fear. It is the last time Titanic will ever see the light of day. ~~~~ Ruby admits Rio into the sitting room of Suite B-52/56, “I assure you it is totally proper.” Rio is totally overwhelmed by the opulence of the room. He sets his sketchbook and drawing materials on the marble table. ~~ “Will the light do? Aren’t artists used to working in good light?” Ruby asks in answer to the question on Rio’s face. Quick to recover his sensibilities, Rio responds (in a VERY bad French accent) “Zat ees true, but I yam not used to working een such ‘ooreeble conditions.” ~~ Ruby crosses the room and approaches him saying, “Rio, I want you to draw me like one of your French GirlBirds, wearing this (as she lightly touches the “Heart of the BirdChannel” necklace around her neck)…and ONLY this.” The feathers on her head fluff, stand out momentarily, and smooth again. Rio moves to arrange the sofa to capture the best light in the room. He lays out his pencils like surgical tools, his sketchbook open and ready. ~~ Ruby approaches holding out a portion of seed to him. “The last thing I need is another picture of myself looking like a pet bird. As a paying customer (dropping the seed in front of him), I expect to get what I want.” Rio looks so stricken, it is almost comical. “Go perch on the divan. There,” he directs her, pointing with his slender, elegant wingtip. “Set your wings comfortably. Snap them a couple of times to help you…er, THEM relax. Stretch your toes and relax your grip on the sofa cushions. Head down. Eyes to me. And try to stay still!: Rio goes to work on Ruby’s sketch, but not before taking in a huge breath and releasing a deep sigh. ~~ “So serious!” Ruby says, teasing, as Rio shakes his head to clear a loose feather from in front of his eye. She sits quietly, smiling contemplatively. “I believe you are blushing, Mr Big Artiste. I can’t imagine Monsieur Monet blushing.” Rio (who would be sweating if birds did that sort of thing) replies, “He does landscapes.” Ruby continues to observe Rio thoughtfully, intently, as he completes his work. ~~ When he has finished, Rio signs the drawing as Ruby leans over his shoulder. He has X-rayed her soul! “Date it, Rio. I want to always remember this night.” Rio complies and hands the completed work over to Ruby. “Thank you” she says. Then she kisses him…and giggles.

  Hey Sammy
Guess what? I had a really fun bath last night, and I rolled around on top of my cage afterwards. It was so much fun! Mom was laughing so much. Dad took a little video of me, and it is really cute, just like Mom said (heeheehee). Maybe next time Mom tries to get me to play in the sink, I will! Here's a big birdie hug for you, buddy, and a vote, of course! <3

  (~.~) A Note From `Ü´ Ruby’s Momma (~.~)
When I opened my parrontal email this morning, I found this note from Ruby’s Mr Rio’s good featheriend, Max (BirdChannel Profile Page 73887) : “Dearest Ruby's mommy, as you know Rio is and has been a great friend of mine for quite some time now and it has been with great pleasure that I have been following this adventure upon the high seas aboard the Titanic [where as you know that in spite of his devil may care vagabond lifestyle, he cleaned up quite nicely and none of the upper echelon was any the wiser that Rio does not spend most of his time hobnobbing with that elite group. He was born to be an artiste, it is engrained in his heart the same way that Ruby is, and that is what has him so concerned now. He knows what a doting mother you are re: your little girl, yet he wants to be completely honest with you and did not know how to go about it, so he approached me for help. ~~ He had me photograph him in the raw, in this case meaning "what you see is what you get". Even though he hails from quite an aristocratic family in Pa, he has chosen not to follow in their footsteps and wants to pursue that which makes him happy. So in this photograph are all the things he needs to be happy. He unloaded his rather worn and shabby suitcase [it had stickers from all parts of the world on it] so he is well traveled and proficient in some foreign languages. It is not education that he lacks, it is just that he has chosen a simple lifestyle. All items featured are what would be called his tools of the trade and he refuses to be weighed down by more than that [with the exception of an occasional change of feathers] This picture was taken before he gave Ruby that necklace "l'amour de la mer". Notice that he still is carrying it in his beak. ~~ anyway, he wanted me to approach you on his behalf so he could be reassured that in spite of what this picture shows, you would still be willing to set aside all doubts re: him and his true intentions........he asked "please-----in the name of love". He is not aware that I actually did as was asked of me and send you that picture. But as a friend I just had to do it, and I would love to be able to tell him that he has nothing to fear [that his heart will not be broken] Believe me, he has it bad. A Macaw heart is a true heart. So if you could let me or him know that all is just fine......he would be the happiest bird on Earth. He wants to share his heart as well as the world with HIS Ruby, in the name of friendship, I beg of you.............sincerely, MAX.” ~~~~

  ~~~~ In response to your intervention, Max…Dear Featheriend Max…You might be interested to know that, even aside from my doting on my Baby Girl Ruby, there is no apprehension in my soul regarding Mr Rio or his intentions toward her. These two lovely young Macaws have had my support and my blessing since meeting at the party you hosted for your own Sweet Alex last summer. Ruby’s DADDY (°.°) however…is a different matter! HE is the parront who will need to be convinced of the innocence and integrity of Rio’s intentions. I shall do my utmost to support your efforts on behalf of your featheriend. And I do thank you for caring so deeply for our two Adventurers. ~~ Sincerely, Ruby’s Momma (~.~) PS: I have posted the photo you included with your email at the bottom of Ruby’s page, amended to show the lovely poem which was a part of your message.
**** PSS: Please be reminded, Mr sammy, that Momma has created a Topic Blog in the BirdChannel Forums… “For all our Dearest Featheriends, if you are just joining our Titanic Adventure and would like to see how it all came about and all that has transpired since our embarking on it, or if you would like to see The Story in its entirety to the present, you may visit the BirdChannel’s ‘Bird Community’. [Link on the left of any BirdChannel page.] Once there, click on ‘Log In to the Forums’. [Next to the picture of those two lovely canaries, in the box tabbed ‘Bird Message Board’, located in the middle of the page as it comes up.] In the second box with bright green and yellow stripes at the top on that page, look for the fifth topic, ‘Pictures of Your Birds” and click on that. Look for ‘Ruby and Rio’s Titanic Adventure’. And once you click on that title…VOILA! You will find every little detail of our adventure and how it came about.”

  `Ü´ Greetings, Mr. Sammy!
I would very much like to welcome you to the BirdChannel. I am `Ü´ Ruby Francesca Begonia, a GRITS GirlBird [GirlBird Raised In The South]. So if there are times you have difficulty understanding my way of speaking, you may blame it on my momma! ~~ I was adopted into my flockily from a store in Charleston, South Carolina where my parronts were living at the time. Momma herself is a Midwesterner and therefore not really qualified to bring me up in the true Southern Belle tradition…but she tries! ~~ My ManBird, My Mr Rio ® (who also has a page here on the BirdChannel), and I have been on a Titanic Adventure for the past couple of weeks, “A Voyage of Love and Romance”. Might I invite you to join our Adventure in progress… ~~ Please feel free to join in the fun by visiting my page and viewing the photographs in the gallery at the bottom. I promise that, once Momma sees your name on my page, she will begin sending you each chapter of the story as it occurs. For you to find out how all of this frenzy began, Momma has typed instructions in the area of my page where “My motto:” is, to direct you to the BirdChannel Forums, where she has also posted each chapter of the story we have already lived through. ~~ To be truthful, Mr. Sammy, I can barely wait until our adventure is concluded and I may return home, to my very own page, and notes from my very own featheriends, so that I can get back to visiting with each and every one parrotsonally. But that will have to wait, for a short time yet anyway. Even I do not know where this adventure will lead. Only The Momma knows for sure! ~~ We shall be weighing anchor again very soon. Please hurry and join us aboard Titanic! Leaving you with a Vote of Anticipation. Toutes alors, mon amie…`Ü´ ♥’s ® [Until then, My Featheriend]

Come visit me, `Ü´ Ruby Francesca Begonia.

  Hey Sammy!
Yep, toes are fascinating! I like to scream at feet, and "attack" them with my beak. I jump around a lot and dance a little too when I play with feet. Humans have such weird feet. . . funny looking nails and an extra toe! Heeheehee! And what's with the shoes? It's so much more comfortable to go around barefoot. Hunh. Skin creatures. . . I love 'em, but they're very strange. Does your Mom ever hold that weird thing to her ear and talk to it? It rings and Mom picks it up and blah, blah, blah. I really wish I knew what the deal is with that. Anyway, have a great day. V4U, and a big birdie hug!

I was glad to hear back from you. Don't worry about feeling a little lost- we all probably felt that way at first. Guess what I got to do today- I played with dad's feet! Mom and Dad used to think I didn't like feet, but now they realize I'm just playing. Heehee! Humans! Have a great day! Here's a vote for you and sweet birdie hugs.
