I was supposed to be a gift for my Mom's Father, but his health called for me to remain with my Mom & Dad where I've been since I was just six months old. Now I'm so attached to my family that I couldn't think of being anywhere else!.

  PP you beautiful thing!
Well hello..it's us again...finally! Mom has just been so busy lately. Nothing much has changed...we are all still very naughty....I attacked my skin sister though...and as much as mommy loves me...she wanted dad to find me another home...but instead they compromised and when skin sis is home ...I has to stay in my cage...but after that I'm allowed to hang out and have fun....but mom gave strict warning that if I ever attack her again or my other skin sister for that matter....dad will have to find me a good home to go to immediately...cuz she won't allow that to happen...breaks her heart to cuz she's crazy about me and I'm crazy about her too...Oh..and Dad finally finished the outside aviary...it's wonderful...we all go inside it on the weekends and in the evenings and play around...dad even put in a thing that if you hook the hose to it...it gives us a misty sort of bath and let me tell you my friend...that is the best fun EVER! Other than that everything is the same....but mom said she promises to try to be better about getting us on here to say hello to our friends. Mom is going to copy and paste this message...so we will vote for anyone's fiblings...but only blogging to one...no offense because we love each and every one of you...but mom is at work..hee hee! Talk soon...Love Graham and flock

P.S. if your mom has any other ideas about how to tame my jealous behavior and the attacking...she is very open to any information she can obtain. you can either blog back....or you can email her at dannigirl1972@yahoo.com and in the subject have her put Penelope's mom or something to that effect so she won't delete it.
Thanks and miss you tons!

Glad you stopped in a while and yes our summer has been so busy too so we sure do understand when you say that!! Today mom gave me my bath bowl again with water. I sat on the edge of it looking at the water and finally got in it but not for long. Mom was happy I at least finally took a bath. I didn’t want to wash all my beauty away hihihi. “The best things in life aren’t things…..they are friends”. Stop in and visit me any time and just like motel 6 I will leave the light on for you.

Hello my friend!!!! I'm so sorry I haven't been on in awhile but there has been an absolute ton of stuff going on with mom and such. We are happy to report that mom finally found a job!!!! She is working at ECOLAB here in Greensboro...unfortunately it is only a contract job but mom had to take it since her unemployment was about to run out. It is through the end of the year but the odds of getting hired on full time after are pretty good if they have openings. It's a great company to work for so far. We really apologize for not being on more often but mom has not had much time at all...when she wasn't working after the girls got out of school, she was trying to keep them busy so that meant a whole lot of time out of the house...and now with her working again she really has not much time either. We have NOT forgot you my friends and we promise that we will pop in from time to time but unfortunately mom just has been so busy that she hasn't had the time. Please don't forget about us because we have not forgot about you. I am leaving votes for all my friends that have siblings but just leaving the message to the first one so as not to repeat myself. Have a great day and we will be back on eventually....but we aren't sure when. Talk soon I hope! Love all of us!!!

Yes our summer sure is flying too and mom is busier then...well she is pretty busy hihihi. Mom and skin sis and granddaughter went to a birdie flea mkt today. I didn’t see any fleas (hihihi) but she got me a really nice happy hut that I can sit in on a perch and some bird food too. Skin sis got the guinea pig some things there as well. Please say a prayer for Clyde, Bobbi and Tiki’s family cause their skin sis is having health problems right now.This is the latest update from Kathy.. Kelly had a good day yesterday. She seemed to be in good spirits. She is coughing up blood again but the doctor feels it is from the biopsies the other day. Her blood tests are showing that it is still not thin enough. They are trying to get her on a good dose of coumadin so she can come home soon. As soon as that happens I think they will release her. She'll need to go to a cardiologist 2-3 times per week to have the levels checked. After a period of that, she can resort to once a week and then once a month. She is starting to get out of bed and walk a bit, so I think that's a good sign. Maybe we are now on a good track. I'm sure hoping so. Keep up the prayers, I know they are surely helping!
Our love to all of you,
Kathy She asked me to tell people on BC . “ I always feel so much better, after a visit with my friends of feather”. Like motel 6, I will leave the light on for you so come visit me any time my friend. V4U …your feathered friend, Chi chi

hello beautiful girl! looks like we are in the same boat...mom has been sending out a generic blog to everyone because she's been so busy...summertime doesn't look to promising for us being around a whole lot but mom said she promises to come in and say hello to everyone every so often. Hope you have a wonderful day and talk again soon....Graham. Oh p.s. congrats on the eggs...sorry your mom took them away!

Well I finally made mom happy!! When she gave me my bath bowl today I got in it and did the rub a dub dub. Hihihi. Guess it’s a good day for a bath for everyone cause mom gave Jay a drinking bowl of water and he took the plunge too. I sat outside to day while mom cleaned our cages and enjoyed the nice day. It was in the 80’s and sunny so quite warm too .”Chi chi is a fid and Lordy how she can fly, now she is stopping by to say hi” Just like motel 6, I will leave the light on for you so stop in anytime.

Well tis the time of year where them parronts get really busy but hey you sure werent just sitting around either...laying 2 eggs ...that is great!! guess its the time of year when them things happen with the extra daylight and all. Mom is hoping I dont lay any but sure have been busy with the paper again. It rained hard this morning and all day till this afternoon. Finally the sun came out and though its cool it is sunny at least. We even had tornadoe warnings last night but some places got heavier rains then we did so we were very lucky. I was offered my water bath bowl today again but didn’t take the plunge. Mom says I am getting stinky hmmmpttt hihihi. “Come visit with me, but if you can’t you see, we can still visit on BC!” V4U Love ya!! Your cheeching friend, Chi chi

You gorgeous thing you! That's so funny....poor OJ...I bet he wasn't happy about you all laughing at him! Well I had a really naughty boy day yesterday and when I'm bad like that mom won't tolerate it...so back to my cage I go...she kept trying to see if I'd be good but since I wouldn't I kept getting sent back to my cage...mom is seriously hoping today is a good Graham day because she said she missed our snug time...but when I'm bad...there is no snugging allowed. Dad said in the next couple of weeks he's going to take me back to PETCO for a visit...the guy that works over the birds...he was so attached to me that he cried when I left...so dad brings me back to say hello every so often...but as soon as I go back through those doors I start my squawking like nobody's business! That is until I find all my girlie friends there...I sure do like the girls! Mom says I'm a typical boy...ha ha ha...but it makes her love me even more...Well my beautiful girl...I have to go for now...mom said she may not be on over the weekend as usual...but we will definately be saying hello to you as soon as we get back on. Have a great day...Graham

Your mom probably knows best what you like so she wouldnt want you getting all upset in a paper bag too. Gus doesnt like them either but I sure do!! I went to the beach today. Well, it felt like the beach cause mom put me outside in my little cage and put my bath bowl in the cage.hihihihi. I dunked in it and since it was in the high 80’s it sure did feel good too. I guess that is what the beach would feel like eh? There were no waves though…darn!! “Friends like you, are precious & few” Just like motel 6, I will leave the light on for you so stop in anytime to visit me. V4U…your friend, Chi chi

My mom isn't normally bothered by my screeching either...but the girls sure are....they don't like it...Yesterday though...mom went to the kitchen and took out the egg pan...and we all know that means we are getting eggies for breakfast...and we all get excited so Nibs and I were playing off each other making a total racket...and mom was trying to hear something on the television...so she sort of got upset with us then...but not really....we are louder than her anyway so what can she do? ha ha ha...well sweet girl...I have to go for now...talk soon...Graham

Yes the frost happened here too but mom only had her plants out and had them covered so we were safe. Glad your dads garden was too. Mom went for some groceries to day and at the fruit stand so I got a brand new paper bag again today. Mom usually takes them out before I go to bed for the night though so I might hide this one some where in my cage so she cant do that hihihi.“Friends like you, are precious & few” Just like motel 6, I will leave the light on for you so stop in anytime to visit me.

That was funny wasn't it? Mom is still laughing.....it made my skin sister so mad when mom picked me up and started babying me asking me if big bad girl wouldn't give me love and attention when that's all I wanted...Last night I got in trouble with dad...mom and I can't remember what I did but I got in trouble with dad anyway and mom said "give me my baby" so she took me (which was what I wanted all along)...and I came over and immediately tattled on dad...mom couldn't understand me but she said between the tone of my voice and my stance...she could just tell I was tattling...so she told Dad that if he couldn't spoil me the way she does then he will have to go stand in a corner. That would be so funny to see...then I could get down and guard him and make sure he didn't move! Well sweet girl....I have to go for now...I think mom wants me...she didn't say so...but she's there...so I'm thinking she wants me anyway....so I will talk soon...Graham

Yep we had frost and cold here this morning and same tomorrow morning so they say. Mom and skin sis are hoping to have a yard sale too ..maybe this weekend depending on the weather. When mom cleans our cages she puts us outside in our small cages and we get our 20 minutes or more of sunshine then. Dad usually watches us then but mom keeps an eagle eye on things too. It was in the low 60’s but the sun is bright so we enjoyed it a lot today too. “Friends like you, are precious & few” Just like motel 6 I will leave the light on for you so stop in anytime to visit me.

  Good morning beautiful girl!
Yes...my new trick is great isn't it? Well let me tell you a funny story about this trick...first let me start by telling you that my 13 year old skin sis is terrified of me...because of my size I guess...and because she's fearful of birds because she's been bitten too many times...so anyway....she stayed home Saturday morming while mom went to the youngest skin sister's soccer game...and mom was coming home and her phone rang...it was the oldest one at the house asking what time mom would be home...mom said she was on her way and would be there in a minute so Morgan (my oldest skin sis) said hurry please...so mom got home and she walked into the funniest sight. Here is Morgan...on the kitchen counter with her feet up ...and mom looks down on the ground and there is me...pacing back and forth keeping her up there on the counter...mom laughed till she cried...she tried to explain that I only wanted love and someone to hold me because i'm just a sweetie...but Morgan wasn't buying it...she was scared...mom said she will laugh at that for years....well my friend...I have to go for now...talk soon...Graham

  Hello P.P.
You pretty thing! How are you today? Did you have fun chirping with your fids? I like that too. I learned pretty nifty trick yesterday...I found out that if I climb to the bottom of my cage on the outside and slide down the legs like a fireman, I can get on the floor and go see my mom anytime I want. She laughed and said it wasn't exactly a thrill to have me up her butt all day long but I was happy! Mom is no longer safe now that I know what to do...she will be mine all day long! Well girl...I have to go for now but I will be back to talk soon...have a great day...Graham

  Hello back gorgeous girl
We have alot in common...we are both beautiful and we both love baths in the sink! That's great stuff isn't it? I make such a mess...but mom just laughs and laughs...cuz I get all fluffy and then just jump under the water....then splish splash all over! Yesterday you couldn't keep me on my cage...I climbed down and waddled over to dad and he would put me back on my cage because he was eating...then back down I'd go....until I spotted mom! That was it...then it was waddling over to mom everytime I got sent back to my cage...I wasn't taking no for an answer! I wants snugs and love and I don't really care what my parronts are doing...they need to stop and love on me right then and there! Happy belated mothers day to your mom too! Have a great day and talk soon....Graham

Happy moms day to your mom too a little late though. That is nice your mom had such a great day and spent some of it with her mom too. Its hard to be everywhere but sounds like she has it all worked out well hihihi. Gus goes to bed as soon as it gets dark around here and I stay up till mom and dad go to bed. I like to spend time then just with mom and dad alone hihihi. I sit on their shoulders or knees and sometimes go where they are going too. Mom says its our time then. “A fid to share your smiles and tears, a friend to wipe away life’s fears” Come cheech with me anytime…I have a perch here just waiting for you, my friend. V4U…Chi chi

It is great fun to be a conure...I have to agree. Yesterday mom was sitting with me on her and then the dumb kitty came over and hopped on mom's lap and before she knew it I was on the cat! They should know that that is MY mom! I don't care who was here first...she is MY MOMMY and that's it! Mom is trying so hard to get me to talk and I won't do anything...she says she can see how smart I am right in my eyes when she's talking to me but I just mumble and don't say anything. I guess it will come in time. Mom picked up those bird phonics cds that when she finally gets a job and back to work, she will put in for us to listen to during the day...hopefully that will help my speech. Who knows...I could just be stubborn like Nibs..he's a conure too and incredibly stubborn. Well I will talk soon...have a great day...Graham

Hello gorgeous girl! Wanted to stop by and say hello to you....Not much going on today with us...and it was pretty mellow yesterday as well. I almost bit the stinky cat though...I was on mom and playing around and the cat came up and jumped on her leg...and before mom could register, I had jumped from her one side to the cat...I'm a pretty big bully when I want to be! Well I hope you have a great day..talk soon...Graham

Yea I know I am the favorite here too but I would never tell Gus hihihi. It was in the low 60’s today and cloudy but at least we didn’t get any rain for once. The rain is suppose to come back tonight though. Drat, I haven’t been able to go out and cheech with the wild birds for a few days now!! Mom had some watermelon and I kept looking at her eating it. She offered me some but I sure don’t want any of it hihihi. “The season of friendship lasts forever” Stop in and see me anytime you can…your always welcome here. V4U ….Love ya!! Chi chi

Not much to report today...mom was gone most of the weekend running errands and soccer games for the girls....but I was sure lonely for her. I missed her a ton...I want to get on her right now but I'm so wide open all the time that whenever she puts me on her shoulder to come blog I end up sitting on her hand and biting her fingers so I have to stay on my cage and dictate to her...but then after she's done blogging she will come get me to snug on! I love my snug time with mom...even if I can't sit still...she says she knows I love it anyway! Have a great day...talk soon...Graham
