  Hi Jose
I sat on the perch in the kitchen window for a long time today and enjoyed the sun on me and watching the wild birds outside. There was a swarm of black birds and they fly together then leave and come back. I duck cause I think they are going to come in the window when they fly up on the roof of the house and mom laughs when I do that too hihihi. The kids didn’t have school around here and I watched the boy and his friend next door build a huge snow ramp and snowboarded off the shed roof onto the snow ramp. It looked like fun!! “What the heart has once owned and had it shall never lose”. I have an extra perch just for you my friend so stop in anytime you can and sit a spell. V4U… Beaky kisses and wing hugs, Gus

Those pet bunnies are neat. Moms gr kids have one too. We got 21” of snow here last night. Dad was out shoveling the driveway and found a little bird and bought him in the house to get him all better though he didn’t know what was the matter with him if anything. Pretty soon he started flying around so dad let him fly out of the garage again. We were happy he was ok. “Good friends are like angels, you don’t have to see them to know they are there.” Don’t be a stranger and stop in anytime you can…you’re always welcome here!!

Then she came home and had lots of pictures she had taken so had to put them on the computer and mess with them awhile. “The season of friendship lasts forever”. Stop in and visit with me anytime and I have an extra perch for a friend like you. V4U…your feathered friend forever, Gus

BOO- it's Jack and I'm FINALLY back! Man, it's been a long couple of weeks without our IP service and I've missed my mates terribly! So what's been happening with you? Staying out of trouble? I would love to tell you that I've been good....but, well...you know me- TROUBLE and MISCHIEF follow me everywhere ALL the time! heeheehee. My list of naughtiness has grown to epic proportions, so I'll just pick out some of the best to tell you about. Here goes....I ate the stinky mutt and tossed his whole bowl of good-o's across the kitchen floor and up the hallway, I tossed a full cup of coffee over mum's pile of clean laundry, I dropped yukkie broccoli on the unsuspecting kitty and then she groomed herself and threw up all over mum's carpet, I bit a big hole in the fly wire on the window, I got to the peanut container and helped myself to most of the macadamia and almonds so now there are just crumbs (heeheehee), I did an autopsy on mum's good sofa and found it doesnt breathe cos it's only full of foam and I discovered how to make confetti out of mum's new book - I dont know why she was cross about that one cos it was only borrowed from the library- it's not like I DESTROYED her property or anything!!! Well, I gotta keep flying cos I've got a lot of squawking to do- please excuse the generic message, but I've got to catch up on the last two weeks. Hope all is well with you mate and AAAAARK, it's good to be home!....Love Jack av4u2. PS- Yep, the weather has cooled down here a lot and FINALLY we have been getting some much needed rain!!

Come visit me, Tico, SECURITY ...GRRRR, Jack....squack, Apollo & Mr BB and Honey.

I just had my feathers trimmed about 6 weeks ago but took off for a big fly outside yesterday so mom says no more being out with out a carrier or cage. It looks like mom’s feathers are a different color then yesterday. Golly gee I hope my little flight didn’t do that to her hihihi. She says she is pretty sore today and is moaning and groaning about it plus her wrist hurting. “Friends are the umbrellas in the storms of life”. Leaving a vote as I say stop in and visit me anytime…I will be waiting for you. Leaving you green kisses and hugs..Gus

Dont look now, but I think she has a big old SCREECH brewing..heeheeheee. Oh yeah, she is singing my kinda tune!

Yea the tail feathers help you glide too. Happy Spring!! Some man came to the house to day and was talking with mom and dad. I hid behind my cage and watched him the whole time. I didn’t say a thing or move and sure was glad when he left hihihihi.Some fids (friends) come into our lives and quietly stay.

I really love your new pics- you look as if you've got an awesome scenic view and probably it's the best spot in the whole house...as it should be!! Not much happening here today, so I'm gonna squack off and find something I'm not allowed to do! heehee....Love Jack av4u2

Well my wings are clipped so I cant fly but Chi chi can so mom never takes her outside. Even when her wings are clipped the little devil can still take off so mom doesnt take any chances with her at all. Mom just had my wings clipped when I was at the vet which was a bout a month ago. Today was such a pretty day that mom and dad went for a walk along the river. Guess it was a pretty good hike cause when they got home they both looked pretty tired. Dad rested but poor mom had to get supper and all her other chores done too. Yep mom says if she comes back again she wants to have a life of the man hihihi. “Some fids (friends) come into our lives and quietly stay.

Dont worry mate- I havent been around much lately either. Yesterday,I got my foot stuck in the tassles of mum's wall hanging and I did the splits. Mum was a bit cross with me cos she said I could've got hurt- but I didn't. I just got really cross with it and gave it a bit of a beak slap!! heeheehee. Mum is feeling much better now, so I will back for a squack each day again! WOOOHOOOO.....Love Jack av4u2

Ahhh sounds like your mom has been doing some spring cleaning and decorating on your house hihihi. Mom took me outside again today for a while since it was such a beautiful day out. We admired the sun, the flowers, the trees and any thing else we saw hihihi. “Some fids (friends) come into our lives and quietly say.

Mum says it is very windy in Melbourne today- she nearly did a Mary Poppins impersonation while trying to ride her bicycle hom from the shops! This is great weather for drying washing, but there was a big fire alert yesterday- the Vic Police sent out mass warning messages on mobile phones! There are still four big fires burning, so we are hoping this wind doesnt make them worse- it is a relentless situation for our wildlife. As King for the week- my first duty is to inform you that there will be a celebration of sorts (Castle Games) later in the week. This will only require an hour of your time and if you are interested in participating, then please let me know. Some of the events will include the Regatta around the Moat (boats supplied by Poirot), Crown Rolling competition and How Far can the Butler Fly comp. Thanks for all your support this last week - you are all wonderful!!....Love Jack av4u2

Mom always tried to make sure my perches arent above any of my bowls so I dont get any bacteria from them cause you know a bird does what a bird does naturally hihihi.Mom went to the store shopping with her friends and cousin today. I worked some more on my bolt and nut toy and got another one loose. Am I getting good at this or what? Hihihi.

Well, an hour a day with your mum must be an hour of feeling fantastic. I am lucky enough that because mum's heart isnt well, she doesnt go to work that much and I get to come out for up to 8 hours. Of course, some of that time is inevitably spent back behind bars because apparently I can be very naughty. My little Tiel bros get to stay out aslong as they want cos they are well behaved and dont get into any trouble. Mum would like to have an open cage door policy with all of us, but that honour is only Mr BB's and Honeys. maybe in another 50 years or so, when I have grown up- she will be able to trust me and not have to constantly supervise me! I wont hold my breath on that one! It's going to be an exciting couple of days waiting to see if I get a holiday at the castle, but regardless of the outcome, I want to thankyou so much for all your continued support and friendship, it makes me feel so very loved. I am asking all my friends to be thinking of Bobbi right now- she had a terrible accident with a car door and now has concussion and is quite crook. Please keep both her and Kathy in your prayers today- hpe you are having a great weekend....Love Jack av4u2

Ahh the wolf whistle is the best one to know for sure!! Mom was running the sweeper today and I begged to be squirted so she squirted me and thought I was content with that then. Nope I went feet first into my water dish and got pretty wet too. Mom had to change my water bowl then too. I kept her pretty busy today hihhihi.

Howz my new little mate going? Cant stay long today cos the skin sis is at the hospital and mum is minding the cootie carrier. I did get a shower (of sorts) yesterday, but mum copped a few bites also and I ended up in the slammer. My beak and feet are still a little green around the edges, but nowhere near as bad as yesterday. This morning, all of us featheries were making a big racket- mum said it was the early morning chorus gone terrible BAD! That's NOT a nice thing to say abput our singing now is it? She remebered that she got some awesome bread the other day- it's full of whole grains and even has millet around the edges- so she toasted some up and we each got a little square to chomp on- now everything is quiet cos we are all busy investigating and chewing our treat. Thanks for stopping by ....love Jack av4u2

Aaaaaaw- you are so cute! Mum says you remind her of my little Tiel bro, Mr BB. Thankyou for stopping by my cage to say hi and also for the vote, it's so cool to meet new friends. Yesterday, mum bought me a new calcium perch- the problem is that the only colour they had, was green. Mum got the fright of her life when she uncovered me today- she thought I had some terrible insidious disease cos all my beak and chest and feet were...GREEN!!! She says that I look like the walking dead and is plotting a visit for me under the dreaded shower. I of course, am already plotting my escape route! May the best mind win! heeheehee....Love Jack av4u2

Mom thought everyone could whistle and found out then not everyone can. Mom used to whistle real loud when her kids were young and then they would know to come home hihihi. She still can whistle like that yet!!Mom got her book from her class reunion last fall and was surprised at how many have passed away already. Some couldn’t be found too which is normal in todays world. She wont say how long ago she graduated but think its been a really really long time hihihi.
