  Hi Dairy
Yes the toys dont last too long with us fids but mom does take some out and puts them in a gain later so seems we got new ones but actually they are old ones hihihi. Mom went to get her feathers cut again. I know she wasn’t flying but she sure was moving around fast today. I thought we only got our feathers cut when we could fly. I just don’t understand a lot of things about humans yet! hihihi “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all”. Got a perch with your name on it so stop in anytime…your always welcome here!! V4U…brawk to you later..Gus.

  Hi Dairy
Dad got the forms in for the cement for the bridge today so that made him happy. When mom went to the birdie flea mkt the other day she got me a swing. Mine is that rope cloth and mom keeps cutting the strings off it so will need a new one soon I suppose. Well mom put in on my playgym for me to get used to it first. I hopped on it today and sure was a swinging away. The more I tried to get off the faster it went and mom just stood and laughed at me hihihi. I finally got it figured out and slowed down and got off then. Mom said it was funny to watch me though. “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all”. Got a perch with your name on it so stop in anytime…your always welcome here!! V4U…brawk to you later..Gus.

  Hi Dairy
What kind of baby bird did your mom raise? That is neat that Peep told him not to be afraid and all. Dad is building an arch bridge down on the trail across a creek. He built a suspension bridge down there about 2 years ago but this one will be shorter. The rain came today and he sure was wet when he came home. Mom didn’t look much better cause she had clothes on the line and went out to rescue them …a little too late though!! I am glad I am in the house and none of that rain on me hihihi. “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all”.

  Hi Dairy
That is a baby blue jay that fell out of its nest and mom and dad raised it then and when it was all weaned and stuff they left it go and now it flies with the wild birds as the wild ones should be free. We named him Jay and he lived here about 2 months. I was 2 weeks old when mom bought me but had to be weaned and came home then 3 months later. Mom visited me every week at least if not more. Chi chi was all weaned and was 3 months old when mom got her. She was 5 years old when I came here to live though. Tomorrow is a bird flea market and mom is going to it. They also have other things but I am only interested in the bird stuff hihihi. Mom is hoping to find a small cage for gr. daughters guinea pig. Mom isn’t sure if skin brother and family are going or not to get anything for their little cockatiel, Cookie. “Please say a prayer for Clyde, Bobbi and Tiki’s family cause their skin sis is having health problems right now. 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 friends. V4U….your feathered friend, Gus

  Hi Dairy
Yes them are my baby pictures cause mom bought me when I was 2 weeks old and took pictures and visited me every week till I came home three months later so sure did change alot. She was happy to be able to have baby pictures of me since she didnt have that chance with Chi chi for Chi chi was 3 months old when mom bought her. Glad you liked them. Mary went over the mountain today and it didn’t rain so mom said it wont rain for 6 weeks now and dad just laughs at the story. Moms dad always told her if it rains on July 14 then rain for 6 weeks and if not then no rain for 6 weeks and called it mary over the mountain day.“ Please say a prayer for Clyde and Bobbi family cause their skin sis is having health problems right now.

  Hi Dairy
Yes its been busy here with summer and always somewhere to go or do or some one here so know what you mean! Glad your mom is getting some RR on the vacation time there. Ummm good baked potatoes for supper tonight. I had to wait till mine cooled down but sure do love them. It was a nice day here and when mom cleaned our cages we sat out and enjoyed the sun and nice breeze flying past us. “I always feel so much better, after a visit with my friends of feather”.

  Hi Dairy
Wanted to tell you mom and dad were in Tucson a couple of years ago and mom still has her cactus she bought there. Moms sister goes to Parker to stay for the winter every year then they come here for the summer. Mom went to the fruit stand and came home with corn on the cob and I got some of it too…its so good!! I flew across the room today when mom was cleaning my perches off and it scared me. She couldn’t find me for a while but I was sitting with Andy and Ann on the bench hihihi. I told mom “I know” and also “no” today so I learned two new words. I wore my jungle talk toy out and it wouldn’t work but mom put new batteries in it and now its as good as new!! “The season of friendship lasts forever”. Stop in and see me anytime you can..your always welcome here. V4U….Love ya!! Gus

  Ohhh Dairy
I am sooo sorry about calling Peep a she so please tell her ok for me. That typist messed up and I am going to fire her ...but shes all I got to help me here. Kiss and hug Peep and I am so sorry but didnt mean it so glad you understand. Can you believe I took the plunge 2xs today? The first time I showed Chi chi how to jump in her bath bowl when she wouldn’t do it but jumped in my water bowl instead hihihi. Then the second time mom had that pesky sweeper running and I did it again. Finally mom said that was enough and gave me a real bath. Hihihi. I even got blow dried too wooo hooo!! “The season of friendship lasts forever”. Stop in and see me anytime you can..your always welcome here. V4U….Love ya!! Gus

  Hi Dairy
Yes when you push a button they each say something. They are called a jungle talk toy and foster and smith sells them or just google jungle talk toy and see where else you can get them but foster has them for sure. I heard a big noise today and mom showed me out the window. This big bird had wings on the top going around. Mom said it was a life flight helicopter and they land in the park below us sometimes. “Some fids (friends) come into our lives and quietly say. Others stay for a while leaving footprints in our hearts and we are never the same”. Stop in anytime and just like motel 8 I will leave a light on for you!! V4U….beaky kisses, Gus

  Hey Dairy
Punkin here. Thanks for flying by and leaving the vote. We little ones sure appreciate that.
We don't care for crackers, but give us some pasta or scrambled egg and we really go to town. Mom really gives us great extra special foods this time of year. I think she hopes we'll nest. HA.
Fly by again when you can. v4u

Oh boy bet that surprised Peep. Good thing he can tell you about Dory too. Dad bought in the mail and there was a toy just like Charlie’s in a box, one for me and one for Chi chi. Thanks Charlie for telling mom about this jungle talk toy!!. I have mine going full tilt and sure do make it talk a lot. Mom says she don’t think its going to last long if I keep beating it up like that hihihi. Mom thought I would be scared of it but no problems with that!! “Don’t let life ruffle your feathers.” Please visit me anytime…the door is always open for you my friend.

Oh boy is that mom a noisy woman!! She was sewing some on the curtains she washed and had to wash today. That sewing machine sure does make a lot of noise. I am glad the curtains are all up again and those pesky wild doves cant see me in the house here no more hihihi. I get excited cause I don’t understand about glass in the windows and think the wild birds can come right in our house.“Don’t let life ruffle your feathers.” Please visit me anytime…the door is always open for you my friend.

  Hi Dairy
I love fruit but strawberries arent my favorite thing I guess. The cracker story was funny!! Mom was taking curtains down and washing them today and cleaning windows too. There is a huge picture window by my cage and I saw the wild doves outside and started yelling cause I thought they might come in. Mom had to put a cloth over the window so I would keep quiet hihihi. “Don’t let life ruffle your feathers.” Please visit me anytime…the door is always open for you my friend.

Well Chi chi wrote to Peep so I am voting and writing to you hihihi. We were suppose to get rain today and turn cooler but it never happened yet and now here it is night time so guess the weather man is wrong again. Mom said he is wrong more then he is right lately.hihihi. Mom got some strawberries when she went shopping and some cantaloupe too. I had some but they aren’t real good yet for the season so I didn’t like them like them like I did last summer so will just wait till the fruit stand opens before I try them again.“Don’t let life ruffle your feathers.” Please visit me anytime…the door is always open for you my friend.
