I met my mom when she came to meet my African Grey flockmate who, like me, was in need of a new home, our first family having grown too old to care for us. It is with pride that I tell you that I think I made more of an impression than the sulky grey did 'cause I waved and said "HELLO!". Saber said nothing and did nothing but glare. I owe that bird though because after he was adopted, he put in a good word for me, mentioning my name often in the days after he moved in. That had mom thinkin' the grey bird missed me after eight years of bein' together. Truth be told, Saber didn't miss me but I sure love being a part of this family.

Hi! My name is RaneBeau ('>

I am a Macaw from Monmouth, IL.

Nope, not really. It's just RaneBeau.

I joined the BC 1.2007. **** ******* ***** My Hatchday is Feb. 10!


19 years old   M

Macaw

Pistachios and hazelnuts in the shell. I love cheese but so rarely get any, it's like the ultimate treat.

It used to be a laundry basket with a collection of mismatched socks or the top of Saber's cage but that's all changed now. I love to have a big cardboard box on the floor behind the door of my room where I can hide and no one can see me. Except for my tail that is. I also hang out on my grapevine perch on the side of my cage or in the closet if I happen to catch the door left ajar.

When Reba is invited out of the bird room and I'm not, it gives me cause to holler at the rude human that didn't take ME too. Other than that, I'm rather unruffled about most everything else in life.

My mom sticks up for me when I'm noisy, reminding the family that I'm just excited and want to be in on the action! She tries to keep life interesting for me by including me in most everything she does, whether inside the house or outdoors. I appreciate that I'm allowed out of my cage most of the day...until those guys come home...

I have to float almost everything I eat in water first; Birdie Bread, granola bars, Walnut loaf, fruit, you name it, it's goes in there. (Update; I don't do this much anymore. It's just dried apricots I put in my water bowl now. Can you believe that flat things becomes a plump apricot after a long soak? Me neither!) I prefer to play on the floor, unless that's the norm for all macaws. I don't know.

Wherever my Mom is,that's where I wanna be. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~- ~~~~~~If you'd like to see me 'In Action'... YouTube. com/kelybrd.

  Hello RaneBeau~
I hope all is well and that you are having a spectacular end of August. Feels like Autumn up here already since we have been having rain and lots of wind! Lots and lots of wind! When mom drove Jennifer down to her dads house yesterday, all the traffic lights were out from the freeway to the dads house! It took a very long time. Mom found "Car Talk" on the PBS station and listened to that. Those 2 brothers are hysterical! At least she could sit in traffic with a smile on her face!!

Enjoy your day and I hope you have had some opportunities to go out into the aviary!

Enormous Amazon Hug from me to You!

  Hi RaneBeau
I am just cooking away out here in So Cal! It is too darned hot. Had to stop by and let you see the news I am sharing with everybirdy today.

No sunbath today, and you will hear no complaints from either me or my mom. It is 104 out there right now, and since that is what it ended up being yesterday as well I guess we were darned lucky I got outside at all on Thursday. Mom leaves for the gym at 9:30 on Fridays, so if it is a hot one we stay inside. I still got a nutriberry in my Barrel o' Fun though.

If you stop by the Calendar Page or the Milonga Page today, you will see the announcement about next month's milonga. The County Fair is coming back!! The highlight of the fair is the pig races, of course. If you have ridden before and want to ride your pig again, get on over to the Milonga page #165848 and sign up. If you miss the 9/3 deadline to re-sign, your pig will be up for grabs on 9/4 when we start accepting new riders for any pigs that become available. And PLEASE only sign up if you really want to participate and plan to be at the Fair.

You may have noticed that we have nobirdy signed up to run for BOTM in September for the October crown. This means it is wide open, even to previous winners if it has been a year or more since they wore the crown. So if you have always had a hankering to be BOTM and were just to shy to get yourself nominated, this is your big chance! Can't wait to see who comes out on top!

  Hello RaneBeau~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still very pretty here and only in the 80's. Rain is suppose to come back for the weekend and we sure could use it! We are not use to being so dry for so long. Everything is yellow and I want it to be green again!
We are getting laundry done today. Mom has to work tonight but she'll have Friday night off. She is going to the library later to get me more story books and she will see what movies they have in. Friday movie night is my favorite! Even if the movie isn't good I'll still have popcorn!
We hope the family and the flock are all doing great! Are we enjoying having Michael home? DUH! Dumb question! I know you are!
Please give mom and the flock our love! Have a fabulous day my friend!
Amazing Amazon Hugs from me to you!

  Hi RaneBeau, (Please read & blog back)
I have a question about the pig races. I have a pig for you to use for my race. It is the first pic in my gallery. His name is Porkchop. I would like to know if you will replace him with Pearl, the one I had last year. When I first joined, I could not get a pig or adopt one. Then last year when I signed up, they gave me Pearl which was okay because I was just glad to be in the race. I never had the opportunity to pick a pig or adopt one like most of the other birdies did. I would like to adopt this one and he would be the one I would have for the pig races each year. I will even pizap the pic to make it more convenient for you if you want me to or you can do it if that's better for you. You would just need to give me the background for it if I make the pic. Please get back to me letting me know. Kiddo said he would mention it to you as well but I wanted to ask you myself since I'm the one that picked out the new pig. I would really appreciate you working with me. I will help you with the pig races in any way I can. Thank you so much!!

Hope you are having a good week!! Left a vote for you.

Your friend,
Chipper

Hello dear friends.
Thank you So Much for all the HatchDay Wishes....it's great to be 7.
It was such a great day that I started doing my 'happy squawk' in the evening and wouldn't stop for a long time. Daddy laughed and laughed.
- - -
Dad gave me a happy day filled with treats and surprises. I even got Lemon Sherbet for a yummy birthday dessert.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Uncle Geno hosted another Marilyn Monroe Move Night on Thursday. They watched:
"The River of No Return" (1954) which was fun.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Dad and Uncle Geno went to the theater to see a German Film called "PHOENIX".
Dad called it his favorite film of the year so far. Sadly some of our friends have fear of subtitles - isn't that silly. Many miss out on such good films this way.

Thanks again for your gifts and wishes. ~Wings Up~

  Hi ya RaneBeau~
I hope you are having a perfect kind of day! I just finished some apple, cinnamon, pecan oatmeal! I must say I think this is my favorite so far! I like all the oatmeal that mom makes but the pecans were a surprise!
The rain storm we had yesterday did not help with the fire on the other side of the mountain. I guess it made it worse since it caused more wind. I feel so bad for all those people.
Mom went back to work last night and of course there was tons of work waiting for her. There is a back up person but she is in the garden and they don't want her to do anything but the garden. Kind of makes it useless to have a back up if they are not going to be able to do the work! Mom will catch up eventually.
Believe it or not, they already have the Christmas jammies out for the little ones. Mom says the baby that can wear it has not even been born yet! Talk about planning ahead! The Halloween ones are out too and all the Autumn decor. That stuff is nice to look at but I don't think anyone is ready to think about Christmas yet.
We heard that Michael is home! We hope you all have a great time together! I know you miss him so much! Enjoy it!
An Amazing Amazon Hug from me to you!!

  Hello RaneBeau~
I hope your day is going great! I've been out sitting with mom all morning and I'm having a wonderful time. I chewed on her shoelace, preened a bit. Chewed on her jeans, preened a bit. I am in a chewing, preening kind of mood today! This molt I am going through is horrendous! Mom is wondering how wild Amazons fly when they lose 4 tail feathers while molting! I can't fly so how should I know??
My play cage was all nice and clean when I came out this morning. Mom said there were so many fuzzy feathers everywhere that it took forever! When she finally finished up the cage, Merlin went over and threw up right in front of it! Hairballs!! Guess he didn't want to feel left out with all the cleaning going on!
There was suppose to be no rain this week but mom went to the car wash so of course it rained this morning! I just hope it continues on over the mountains and rains over there. There are so many fires there and they could really use some rain!
Enjoy your day my friend! Please give mom and the flock our love and keep some for yourself too!!

  Hello RaneBeau~
I hope you are having a lovely day! It's been nice here so far. It's moms last day of vacation. Bummer! She has to go back tomorrow night and I am not happy about that. She tells me we will have plenty of time to spend together so not to worry.
We are still working on the Linen closet. There is lots of stuff in there! We have been able to get rid of a bunch of stuff so far and it's looking good!
We read that we are suppose to have 3 big snow storms between December and February this winter. It was in the Farmer's almanac. They were pretty right on with the summer prediction so we tend to believe them. Not looking forward to that. At least when you know ahead of time you can prepare.
Enjoy the day buddy! Please give mom and the flock our love!

  Hello there RaneBeau~~
How is your day going? I hope you are getting lots of attention today. I know we Amazon are pretty spectacular, but i can't think of another bird who is as awesome as you!! Those eyes of yours could melt any heart! You know my dad still has you as his screen saver on his phone. You have been admired by truck drivers near and far! They all know what a special guy you are! I know you are a pretty special guy too!!

We did the linen closet today. It's fun to see all the stuff that gets shoved in there. I'm sure mom doesn't think it's much fun but I loved seeing all the stuff. Mom cleaned the stove too but that took a very long time since I wanted some attention so she kept having to stop. I sat with her for a while but then I started to doze off so she put me back on a perch so I wouldn't fall off her knee! I get a little unsteady there if I start to fall asleep so I need my perch!!

Glad your mom and dad had a nice weekend. It is very cool that they have that camper to use. I'm sure it is very peaceful.

Mom has to get dinner done so I'll say bye bye for now! Enjoy your evening and I hope it's just spectacular!

Amazing Amazons Hugs from me to you buddy!

  Hello RaneBeau~
I hope you had the most wonderful day ever! It was nice here. We are still having sunshine but it's not really hot.
We spent the day cleaning. It took forever to clean the mini blinds but at least that does not have to be done too many times a year! We washed the drapes and cleaned the fireplace too. The living room looks good now and tomorrow we will pick another room to do.
Dad come home this afternoon. He has to take that 34 hour break so he'll be here until Wednesday. He's already gone to sleep since he was up all night. He did make sure to give me a goldfish before he went to sleep! Do I have him well trained or what? hehehehehehe
Tonight mom and I are going to watch Star Trek Into Darkness. I like that movie and we think Zachary Quinto is fabulous! He has done Leonard Nimoy proud!

  Hi ya RaneBeau~
I hope you all enjoyed your Sunday. It was quiet around here. Mom had some stuff to get done and I just hung out and played for a while. Then I wanted to sit with mom so we did that for a few hours. It was fun!
We are having a short vacation for the next 4 days so I suppose I will be doing lots of supervising. Dad will be home tomorrow. He has to deliver in Seattle and then take a 34 hour break. There are very strict rules about how many hours he can drive and how much of a break he has to take. There is a computer in the truck that tells him exactly how many hours he has left to drive in a day! The truck will actually shut off if he goes over! Such amazing technology!!!
Have a great night! Give mom and the flock our love

  RaneBeau, my friend!
Long time no squawk! All is well here in the Mountain state, although the monsoons are turning part of our city into a mud bowl. Rain is better than fire, though! I know you've had your share of big weather this year, too, so I feel your pain. I had a great hatchday yesterday, and was so tickled to see that so many friends remembered. Mom always giggles and gets excited when she gets a BOTD email from the BirdChannel. (I got blueberries with my carrots this morning, so she must be happy.) I was watching the news this morning and heard that the El Nino event this year will rival that from 1997. That means More Weather. It will be an interesting year, I think. Anyway, I was thinking of you and wanted to fly by with a vote and a winged hug. I hope you are well and enjoying your summer! Ciao for now~ Sarabito

  Hi ya RaneBeau~
I am really liking that picture of you in your gallery! Looking over your shoulder at what?

Yep! I'm sitting on mom's knee. I won't sit on anyone else around here. Right now I'm on the back of the computer chair yelling hello! I know it's late but since mom is off tonight we are up a bit late getting some things done.

I got locked in solitary today because the guy from the office came over to fix the dryer. He needed to go get a part so I was in there a long time! Mom came in to keep me and Merlin company. Jennifer was in the living room watching this silly show called the Amazing Race so if the guy needed anything she was right there. No more squeak in the dryer and it's drying well, but when mom took the towels out she saw that the insulation is hanging out. Mom watched a youtube video on how to open the dryer up so she'll try to get it put back in. If not she will have to call the office and have the guy come back.

Hope the parronts had lots of fun camping. Mom is taking a few days off next week but it will be for painting the bathroom. We'll be camping in the living room and I think that is about as close to real camping as I will get!

Enjoy your evening buddy and I hope you still have your
t-shirt. They are so nice to snuggle with!!

  Hi RaneBeau
That is so cool ... you probably talk in your sleep. I don't know if I do or not but, I'm next to mom now for a few days (until Saturday night).
As for the girl's weekend, mom says I wouldn't have enjoyed it and would have been in a small condo most of the time. So, I guess it was good to stay home and play with my toys.
I too love walking around on the floor. Mom says I need to be vocal when I'm doing that as I almost get stepped on.
Well, your up north is cold and damp. we hope it gets up to low 80's soon!
Looks like we won't leave here until the 12th of Sept. It got pushed back cause of skinsis.
Monday:
I'm back on the BC. Mom had a greyt time with her friends. She came home with going away gifts ... so, where's mine? It was a girl's weekend and I wasn't invited. I'm so upset! Maybe I'll get a special treat.
Tuesday:
My internet crashed after just a few blogs last night. Then today at 2pm, a tree fell on the road and took out the power and cable. Now I have been moved to my parronts room until Saturday night. The strangers will be coming to buy our stuff. I checked, nothing of mine is for sale.

  HI RANEBEAU ('> !!!!
Thanks for stopping by..Pecked a V4U....Today my campaign blog will take you to another place of family fun here in the Poconos..Hoping it will be of interest to some.....The name of the place is Costa's Family Fun Park...Located just 3 miles from Lake Wallenpaupack in Hawley, Pa...Costa's family fun park offers activities and food for the family...Your family can enjoy a round of miniature golf on their challenging and fun 18-hole course or practice your golf games by hitting a basket of balls at their driving range. Take a swing at their stadium batting cages. They have slow and fast pitch softball and baseball pitches for little and major leaguers..Create your own field of dreams as you watch that ball soar over the home run fence under the lights..Bring out the NASCAR fan in everyone by racing at the go-kart track..We even have two-seaters so the very young can feel the thrill of victory....Right next to the go-kart track children can enjoy the slides and ball pit or race around the track on their own pedal kart...Moms and Dad like this area too. Its a great place to relax while the kids are having a blast...Their arcade offers classic pinball and skee ball as well as games for small children...Everyone that plays these games can earn tickets redeemable for fun prizes...The snack bar at the park offers family favorites such as burgers, salads, kids meals(with a toy), teen favorites, nachos, mozarella sticks & chicken tenders...Some of the menu also for dessert soft ice cream, hand dipped Hershey's ice cream or create yourself a custom sundae with all of the favorite toppings or enjoy a homemade milkshake..Plus if you enjoy funnel cake try some of theirs...The best way to enjoy the park is with their wristband package but activities can be purchased individually...Open weekend in Spring and Fall and daily in the height of the Summer....This is a fairly small activity park but is enjoyed by many when visiting the Poconos especially if you are spending some time at Lake Wallenpaupack...I would like to thank everyone who votes for me daily....Have a nice Saturday ...Tomorrow I will take you to another place of interest that many people visit while being in the area...Many birdie wing hugs....CYDNEY :o)

YAY ... you are here again!!!!!
Well, the cherries were almost done anyway. No one knows where they went in that 100 mph wind ... I still think they went to Canada! I thought I saw them fly by ... hehehe. The wine grapes are the big worry right now. Can you believe that some tourists are coming up here to see the damage in the really bad parts? They are in the way of the workers ... weird people! Did you see the stuff mom posted on FB?
Oh yes, mom & I were jumping for joy when we heard that we were going to FL! I was squawking loudly!
But with all this mess here ... hard to live around boxes and stuff tagged for sale ... I'm a bit depressed and want to sleep a lot and mom has headaches a lot now. But, she is trying to make me a happy bird. I'm ready to play some ball at bedtime and mom says it's too late.
I sure hope every bird has a greyt weekend. I will be offline until Monday night. Dad and I will be home and mom is going to have fun with the "girls". As I'm a girl I don't understand why I wasn't invited! Unfair!

So glad you stopped by..Some picture of a giraffe's tongue...I thought it was awesome to show everyone..Pecked a V4U...Well today I will be doing the 2nd part of talking about Lake Wallenpaupack....Hope it will be of interest to all...Recreation...An integral part of the lake region of the Pocono Mountains. Lake Wallenpaupack is both regional as well as local, recreation attraction in the tri-state area(Pa.,NJ & NY)and is popular with season visitors from NY city & Philadelphia areas particularly in the summertime.The lake provides, boating, swimming & fishing access in the summer as well as ice skating & ice fishing in the winter. A notable activity during the winter months on Lake Wallenpaupack is its annual "Ice Tee Golf Tournament". Which takes place on the frozen lake. The tournament is a 9 hole competition hosted by the Chamber of Northern Poconos. Its wooded shoreline also provides opportunities for hiking & viewing wildlife. Lake fish include, Small Mouth Bass, Large Mouth Bass, Rock Bass, Bluegill, Walleye, Muskellunge, Northern Pike, Pickerel, Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Lake Trout, Catfish, Yellow Perch. Striped Bass & Hybrid Striped Bass have been stocked in the lake also. The lake has six public recreation areas featuring hundreds of acres of forestland, wildlife, walking trails, campsites & about 10 boat marinas. Outfitters also offer Kayaks, Water Skiing, Parasailing, wake boarding, jet skies or boats to help you make the the most of your experience. Also many beautiful restaurants around the lake to dine at...Again some places offer a 50 minute scenic boat tour of the lake with a tour guide to give you the history of the lake...Hopefully this will give you some idea about this beautiful lake here in the Poconos...All of you have a great Friday...Tomorrow will be about another place of interest to visit here...I want to thank everyone who votes for me daily.. It is very much appreciated..Lots of birdie wing hugs....CYDNEY :o)

  My dear flamboyant RaneBuddy, from a defensive Jen
...you be very careful of any and all names you pin on my Al Man, they could come back to bite you on the butt, LOL! I can see why any bird would be jealous of the magnificent green God, he is the real epitome of being a parrot! He is not 'flamboyant' rather he is a flame proof boy, I AM HIS FIREMAN! I do hope my lovely aunt has a great time at her designated camp grounds, that can be so much fun, my daddy remembers nights spent in a sleeping bag with great fondness, do it while ya can! After a few minutes of the same old lying rhetoric, dad turned the TV over to the Cubs game, we have another year to be punished by these candidates, dad agrees with aunt Arlene, why can't they pick the party's choice like they used to, and let the best man or woman win, instead of the best lier! Our yard looks really nice, and dad is pleased! He must get us our fresh veggies today, but our super market is only 4 minutes away, then he is ours for the rest of the day! TGIF as they say, enjoy your day, we plan to, give our love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny, Christy & our Dallas family

Oh yes, that is a pic of me from FL last January. And, I'm driving my mom's new car.
We had a really bad day on Sunday. Four systems came thru ... one was REALLY BAD! It took out the whole northern MI straight across. It was a 100 mph wind shear that crossed our tip of the mitt! One town, Glen Arbor (pretty town love it) was taken out. So many trees down for miles that no one in the town could get in or out. The lineman and tree trimmers worked to get a tunnel cleared to get the people out ... took 2 days. So many are still without power. Lots of damage, but we were lucky. We only lost a couple of trees. All the branches and limbs on our driveway were cleared by us.
The fruit farmers up here (we have lots of them) had crops destroyed. The cherries flew off the trees and the grapes were pushed down to the ground. So, cherries and wine prices will go up! The good part is only two people were hurt. They were struck by lightning but are doing ok now. We will send you one of the videos. It's pretty to see but not so good huddled in a corner waiting for it to end.
Oh yes, your feathers are packed and will have a place of honor in FL.
We are closing on the 17th, then the estate sale is the 13, 14, 15. After that, my parronts will fly down for 4 days to house hunt. I will stay home with skinsis.
We have found 3 homes that we really loved. Just yesterday we wanted to put a bid on one as we missed the others by a few days. Well, this was sold in 2 days. It's a very fast market down there!!!
I'll be glad when this is over (and so will mom). I don't like all this packing and boxes around. I have been stressed and so are my parronts and skinsis. She just gave a months notice at work.
That is such wonderful news that your friend has his dogs and cats back! That really is amazing!
What a dreary day ... no sun until 4pm and then it was finally 73 degrees. How is a bird going to get a feather tan??? Friday will be no better with a touch warmer but NO sun! I had to keep myself busy destroying wood toys at day. Well, that will give mom something to do ... LOL!
Please don't stay away too long! We miss you and mom a lot.
YCM Huggies for you ...
Chyna

  HI RANEBEAU!!!
Pecked a V4U..I am running for BOTM...Here is one of my campaign blogs...Well today I am able to get on and do my campaign blog a bit earlier...Yipee!!! they are done working on the lines so it can be much earlier tomorrow...It will be a part 1 and finish part 2 tomorrow...Hope you all enjoy...The subject will be Lake Wallenpaupack located near Hawley, Pa.......Lake Wallenpaupack is a fresh water lake in Pennsylvania..It is the third largest lake in Pennsylvania measuring 52 miles of shore line, 13 miles in length, 60 feet deep at points and has in excess of 5,700 acres of surface water.It was created in 1926 by PPL the Pennsylvania Power & Light Company for hydroelectric purposes as well as flood control; however, it is best known as one of several major recreational destinations in the Pocono Mountains.Is is located near the city of Hawley and includes the counties of Pike and Wayne located in Northeastern Pa.The Lenape Indians named the area "Wallenpaupack"which means"The stream of swift and slow water."William Penn later owned the land and then deeded it to his son.Who then gave it to James Wilson One of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.
In order to create the lake, PPL constructed a dam on Wallenpaupack Creek at Wilsonville and a levee.(Tapton Dike)The project 2,700 men almost 2 years to complete and 7 months for the reservoir to fill after the dam was closed off. The land of Wilsonville and the surrounding area in the valley was purchased by PPL from about 100 owners at about $20 and acre and most of the property was razed or moved.Some houses remained, and as the valley was flooded the water was so clear that one could see the houses under the water. In all 17 miles of roads and utility poles were rerouted and Purdytown Cemetery had to be relocated. The former town of Wilsonville now lies under the water near the dam. PPL manages 3,300 acres of land around the lake as well. While homeowners have access rights they must apply for permits things such as landscaping to installing exterior lights and cannot cut down vegetation to improve their view of the lake. A provision to keep the man-made lake natural...Tomorrow I will continue part 2 with the recreations that the lake has...Hope you will find this article of interest..I want to thank everybody who votes for me daily to be BOTM..Have a wonderful day..Lots of birdie wing hugs..Love, CYDNEY :o)

  Hello RaneBeau~
It's always such a joy to hear from you! I certainly am very happy that the neighbor found all his pets! It must have been so awful for him to think they were gone for good. Those tornado thingys are horrible.

Glad to hear you got out in the aviary even for a bit. It was nice of the neighbors to visit but the cat should have stayed home. I live with one and I have to tell you that you can't trust them. They have devious little minds and you have to watch them all the time.

Dad's been in the kitchen chopping things up to make salsa. He got some recipe from his friend Eric to make steak tacos. Since mom is going back to work tonight, it's the perfect night to make them since she doesn't eat steak. Mom eats more like I eat. Works out great for me since she shares! Got some lovely zucchini I'm waiting for her to cook! She doesn't like kale much but we get a nice mix of organic spring lettuce and that is pretty good. Even George and Grace like that stuff.

Not much else going on around here either. Mom is taking 4 days off in a few weeks and wants to get the bathrooms painted. I guess we will be camping out in the living room one night so the smell will go away. It will be fun! I don't think mom will be too comfy on the sofa because Merlin will want to be there!

Enjoy the day and tell Reba to knock it off! It is sad to think of your hut being destroyed!

Leaving the biggest, most Amazing Amazon Hug Ever!!!

  Hi RaneButtBeau, from Jen & Angel Christy
...we seen ya on Chyna's page and thought we'd say hello again! We will only have the time for a few notes today, our lawn care friend is coming over to do the grass, bushes, and nearly out of control weeds, he always needs guidance, LOL! For those who cared enough ask about LaLo's injury, it came from falling between her cage and a natural brick wall in our family room! She damage a few feather follicles, and dad was not pleased with her slow recovery! She was never sick, and her appetite is out of bounds, that little girl can pack it away! Our Vet assured dad that she is just fine and all her blood work numbers are all that could ever be wanted! We are having fantastic weather, with a possibility of rain late tomorrow! Have a great day and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love as always, Jenny, Angel Christy, & our Dallas family

  Hello RaneBeau~
I hope you are having a great day! It's been nice around here. Mom went off for a while to the market. She got me some lovely papaya, mango and almonds! I had the papaya right away! I do love papaya!
Dad is home and has been watching a movie this afternoon so I don't know if I will get to watch a movie later or not. It's okay since he's not around much and I can be nice and let him have the TV for a while. I'll still have my story later!
I hope you have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello RaneBeau~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I think it's hot just about everywhere now. I think we are going to break the record for the most days over 90 today. I guess they have been keeping the record for about 120 years.
Seahawks training camp starts tomorrow and Taima the hawk is coming over for a meet and greet! Wish we could get up there to see him but mom has to work the whole weekend. Everyone is very excited for football to start again. It seems rather dull around here without it!
We are finishing up laundry and getting things ready for mom to go back to work tonight. It's not much fun but I do have some new toys to keep me occupied!
Please give mom and the flock our love! We hope dad and the boys are doing great too!
I hope your day is just fabulous!! Stay cool and enjoy it!

  Hi RaneBeau
It's so good to hear from you. I miss you a lot. Just have to tell you that mom packed your feathers to make sure they go to FL with us.
I'm so happy that all of you are ok after the nasty storm/tornado. I'm sorry to hear about your friend loosing his pets and house, so sad. Did you see it too? Did all of you have to go somewhere during it?
yes, I think it would be a good idea to build a MCArk. You can always use it later.
I'm back! We had a greyt time with our company. The weather was greyt! Even had a bonfire with s'mores. My aunt Gail played ball with me and that was a fun time. I also enjoyed some BeeBeeQ chicken, yummy.
Today, mom got her NEW new car and we all love it. Hope everybird had a greyt weekend, I missed all of you. I hear that the weather will be 70 for a few days now.
Have a greyt night.

  Hi RaneBuddy, from Jenny & my flock
...what a wonderful surprise to see ya on my bank robbers page! It is true, my daddy is struggling just to stay upright! Sometimes his medical conditions prohibit him from always doing the things wants, and needs to do! I know he is ashamed of his yard, and now the inside of our home, he used to be so tidy with all of us and our areas! I am so glad to hear that you and your whole McFamily are all okay, we concern ourselves greatly with you guys and the McClellands in Washington! You came very close to total devastation, and we are so sorry to hear about your neighbors who lost their home, and 3 precious pets, our hearts hurt for them! My dad is getting tired just sitting here, so we are going to skate for now, please give my love to Art, Al, Kel, Kirbs, and your unbelievable sweet momma, so many times she brightens our day, without even knowing it! I love her, but I still suspect she is a witch, I think there was times when she wanted to boil me in oil, LOL! Have a great Sunday dear friend...

Eternal love from Jen, Ms LaLo, & Angel Christy, may peace be with you bro....

  Hey RB
Happy Sunday !!! Our power finally came back on but I don't know for how long...We are expecting more rain today and Monday. Hopefully with no power outages. We love the rain and we need it...PLEASE SUPPORT ME !!!

Trick marriage continued...

As Kiddo walks in the crow camp it's quite and all his enemies are sleeping. Kiddo looks around and starts planning on a rescue plan for the white mustang family...
Kiddo prays and asks Mah -Hey-Yoh to guide him and help him. There are hundresds of Crows there and only one of him. Being the strong Brave Warrior he is he walks around the crow camp with pride.

Kiddo say's to himself I can't figure this out. There's so many of them and only one of me !!!
Suddenly Kiddo hears three small voices whispering Kiddo help !!!

Kiddo looks around and he finds his brothers Cappy, Pearl and Silver tied up to a wooden stake. Kiddo quickly runs over to them to let them go. Kiddo say's why are you three here taken prisoners by the Crow ??? Cappy tells Kiddo we followed you to help you... In our dreams we saw you getting eaten by the Crows!
We also saw you in your sleep holding on to your medicine pouch asking that you get home safely so you can marry Sweet Pepper. Kiddo asks did you say anything to Sweet Pepper ??? This is a trick wedding.All three brothers say no.

Kiddo say's I want you to distract the crows and take three of their fastest War Pony's. I will meet you on top of the mountain under the hidden tree.Stay there and wait for me and stay out of trouble !!!

Kiddo sits behind the corral where the white mustang family is trapped.Cappy,Pearl and Silver jump on three of the crows fastest war ponies and call the Crows out !!! The Crows start to chase the three brothers into the hills. Kiddo quickly jumps on the white mustangs son and he leads the mother and daughter out of the corrals.

After they are out of the crow camp Kiddo opens his medicine pouch and throws clear shining stones in his brothers direction. The stones turns into a big shield and puts protection around his brothers so they can make it home safely.

Trick marriage continued tomorrow and following Trick marriage will be Sky and BB's wedding tomarrow...

Thank you for your votes Love Panther

  Hi RaneBeau
We saw that terrible weather/tornadoes right near your McFarm! I hope nothing was damaged. Be safe and be well my friend.
Sending lots of hugs to you and mom.

It was a busy day with all the paperwork for the replacement new car. Looks like mid 80's for us this weekend. I have company and will be off the net until Monday night. See you then.

  Hi ya RaneBeau~~
I hope all is well! I heard that you had Mr. Toad's wild ride kind of weather last night! What's up with that??? Perhaps you should all head west and perch with me for a while! Got boring weather out here. A bit warmer than usual but we have plenty of fans around the house.
Thinking about you guys and I hope that was a once in a lifetime kind of event!
