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.

'Bo', BoMan, RaneBeau, BIRDBRAIN (according to CocoPuff)******- *
I joined the BC 1.2007. **** ******* ***** My Hatchday is Feb. 10!

18 years old   M


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.

  Hi Rane Beau
Did your mom make you perch in a strange place again? That is the scary part of that pic.
Our mom hasn't been able to spend much time on BC due to dad's electromagnetic sensitivity. Fortunately he is getting less sensitive, so we are able to spend a BIT more time. Dad is at work so the WiFi is on, mom is taking dictation instead of doing her 'jobs'.
Otherwise, life is as usual.

  Hi RaneBeau,
Thanks for stopping by. Yes, I realized after I gave you the list that I didn't put positions down and you will need them when making the pictures. I will get back to you by the end of the week after I figure out everyone's position and number.

Are you able to get a picture of all the players? You may have some of them already but if not let me know so I can tell them to leave you a picture of themselves in their gallery, or however you do that.

Once again, I appreciate you doing these pictures for our team. Thanks so much for everything.

Talk to you soon! Hope you're having a good week. Leaving a vote for you. Enjoy your evening!!

Your friend,

  Afternoon my dear RaneBeau man-from Jenny & Ziggy the heck are ya big guy We are praying for all our East Coast friends, that they will all be safe from the nasty storms blowing up the coast! Our weather is very typical Fall like, with no sun yet, maybe later! We all had a great time with dad yesterday, he was showering us all with more attention than usual and we were all eating it up! Dad insists that his love for us has no boundaries, and he wants to spend more time showing us! He made at last a half a dozen new toys, and has decided to make them smaller! Happy hump day buddy birds, and give my love to all in your fabulous home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny, & the Dallas family

  Hi RaneBeau
Oh yes, that's my pile on the bottom of my page ... except for mom's t-shirt! I think I did pretty good! The only problem is, one huge toy is for Christmas. That's ok, I have lots to destroy and treats to eat.
Hmmm, I think we need to call it the RebaWall ... it's really her fault anyway. How could anyone blame you??????
I also think we birds need to go with the moms on the next adventure! It is called Parrot Palooza and not Parrot Mom Palooza!!!!
Well, I finally have some pics up from the Parrot Palooza. Mom had a greyt time. But, how could she without me?
The weather here is just cold with some rain. But, I don't notice as I'm busy making a greyt pile of chewed up wood all around. I think it looks nice.

  ng place with you RaneBeau where the two of us could just snuggle up close together in one of Mom's empty cabinets she's trying to clean out right now!We could have fun with all the wood in there and the boxes she's hiding from Kallie!I can't thank you for letting me know how Kirby,Kelly,Reba and the rest of your awesome flock is doing!I'll bet you must all miss being out in the bird barn right now!I know I sure would,I already miss not being able to get out on the deck anymore and joining in on the BBQ's.Mom is going to try for one more BBQ on Sunday and hopefully the weather will cooperate with Mom,silly Mom was out in the pouring rain a few weeks back grilling while everyone was staying dry on the deck under the big umbrella!Mom wants to get all the deck furniture inside the sunroom before Halloween,I sure will miss my times on the deck and the sunshine on my sore feet and toes!
I love you soo soo much RaneBeau and you always brighten my day whenever I get to be with you!Dixie closes his eyes while RaneBeau wraps him in his comforting Harlequin Macaw wings and feels all the love RaneBeau has to give him and he feels so blessed to have RaneBeau in his life!

is sooo excited to see RaneBeau again and can't believe it!He runs up and gives RaneBeau the biggest little GCC hug he can squeeze out to him!My Mom is so worried about me all the time and hates leaving me home whenever she has to go out!She's been taking me to zumba class with her too and this is the second time I've been to zumba class and can you believe it that no one knows I'm even there?Mom has me in the small carrier and I guess they all think its Mom's purse or something!She leaves me on the floor in the very back of the room by the wall and throws my blanket over my carrier and I can look out the screen on my carrier at all the silly ladies and guys dancing and jumping around and is the music really loud too!
We started out with a bright warm sunny 72 degree day here and then by mid morning the clouds came in and it got dark as night!It really started downpouring torrential rain showers so hard you couldn't see out the windows!And we had lots of loud thunder also!Its gonna be pouring here and raining til ten tonight!Oh how I wish I could be with you there watching those farmers and those noisy tractors and big trailers going by!How awesome is that?It must be so much fun living in a farming country like that!I'll bet it must be so awful to have to wait for all the fields to dry up so they can continue their harvesting!The only excitement we get around here is maybe watching the big yellow school buses coming up and down our street,or watch those people that walk their dogs carrying their doggie bags,the ones that do,some you can see the dirty doggie bags swinging between their leashes!EWWWWW!!!
I just loved the kiss my Mom gave me from you and it sure made me feel soo sooo much better,I just hate having to take all that medicine all day long and can't wait til I'm done with it all!
Mom and I are laughing as you told us about Kirby taking off on your sweet Momma like that!Sometimes when my Mom leaves my door open I'll jump all the way down to the floor and she can't find me either!Mom is so afraid of me jumping onto the hardwoods from such a great distance for fear I'll hurt something else!I stopped flying two years ago and my wings don't work so Mom has to massage my wings to keep them from atrophying on me,I just love those full body rubs,but I also miss flying throughout the house following Kallie around.Mom has an acrylic cage for me which is in the tv room big window so she'll take me out there when the sunshine is out so I can see what's going on in the world outside as I can't sit on her shoulder without falling off because of my twisted toes,I can't hang on very good.
My baby fister Candida does that to Mom also,she takes off because she freaks out for one reason or another with something she saw and Mom is so silly crawling around the floor and looking under everything while she sits up high on the big playgym in the dining room wondering what that crazy Mom is doing on the floor like that!I would love to find a great hidi

  Hello Handsome Guy~~
I hope you are enjoying the day. I do have sunshine right now but it's suppose to pour tomorrow. I can not complain because we had a sunnier than usual kind of summer. We are suppose to have one of those El Nino winters but that usually means lots of wind to go with the rain! My Coleman kid's lantern has new batteries and is ready to go! I've got plenty of food stashed away and lots of bottled water. We are all on bottled water now since they had 2 cases of E-coli in the water up north. They could never figure out how it got there so mom decided it was better to be safe than sorry. She doesn't think the Brita filter will be any help when it comes to bacteria.

I have always loved pancakes! It is the one food that I always like to have seconds! Pizza crust is a close second but those pancakes are just too yummy to resist! I have a feeling that mom puts healthy stuff in them but they all taste good to me! I suppose I'm like Kelly when it comes to the regular things like sunflower seeds. I can take them or leave them. My mix is Higgins Safflower and there are no sunflower seeds in it and I don't miss them at all. I still get my mash and of course corn bread! I do love corn bread but I would pick pancakes over that any day.

Mandy has her good days and her bad days. Mom got wee wee pads and has been trying to get her to use them out on the balcony in the mornings. When she first gets up she can not walk very well. The first time Mandy went out there, Merlin was sitting on the balcony table watching her!! I think that is pretty rude! The dog really should have some privacy while she is trying to pee! On occasion mom will have to carry the back end of her up the stairs but as long as Mandy goes slowly, going down is still okay. Mom puts the heating pad on her if she is stiff and that helps. She still eats like there is no tomorrow so that is good! She usually lays down while she is eating now but she finishes every bit!

I'm pretty sure dad is anxious to get home because his new laptop is here and he hasn't even seen it yet! He has been staying out for about 2 months at a time. For some crazy reason he makes more money east of the Mississippi! I don't understand why shipping something in the east would be more expensive than in the west. It's still the same truck but they pay him more out east!

You enjoy your sunshine and please give mom and the flock our love! I just love those Harley Hugs so keep um coming!!!

Here's a Zon Hug just for you!!
Love ya ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi RaneBeau
I was thinking you were MIA!
It's so nice to see you on the BC again! Missed you lots. At least come over once a week .... PLEASE!
It's a week of rain here :( But at least that white stuff hasn't come yet!!!!!
So, what's with this wall you are talking about? Do you have a pic? Can you walk around a little??? This doesn't sound fair to you!!!
Well, mom is back and still isn't caught up with everything. It took her 10 hours to drive home on Tuesday in the rain. Mom was gone for seven days and dad took good care of me. She was tired but, I had to see what see what she bought for me! That is after I gave her my greeting. I've been in toy heaven chewing everything in sight! I heard her say that the big toy is for Christmas. Do I have to be good that long??? I also have new perches and some tasty treats. Oh yes, I'm a velcro bird again. She had a greyt time with all the BC moms and hopes to do it again some day. It was cold and everyone had to have lots of layers to keep warm but, still was fun. Maybe we birds can go next time????

Hope Fall is finding you well. Getting ready for Halloween? I've been enjoying watching my people dealing with that massive feline. It is really humorous. She is now big enough that jumping to the top of my castle is just not in the cards, so she finds other havoc to wreak. I have been enjoying my time and playing with new toys. I have been destroying them with vigor. It seems to make the humans happy when I do. Every time I destroy one, a new one appears the next day. It is really amazing. These humans are so easily trained. Cheers to you, my handsome friend! I'll fly by again before too long. :) Sarabi

  Hi ya Handsome~~
I hope you are all having a great day! It was a thrill to see your name on my page!! I keep you guys in my thoughts everyday!!
Mom deleted some stuff off the computer today and it seems to be working well! I've got my toesies crossed!!
Dad's new laptop has Windows 8 on it and it's not what mom is use to. Dad keeps saying that mom is going to love it and want one but that's not going to happen! His old one is just fine.
He ordered the new parts for the desktop and they should be here sometime next week. We hope he will be here sometime next week to put it all together. As usual he went overboard and bought everything! That is just dad.
He requested time off last Saturday and they are suppose to send him west when he does that. He was in South Dakota and they are sending him to Macon Georgia. I think that is east, isn't it??? Perhaps I should send the dispatchers a map to help them out!hahahahahaha
I'm helping with cooking today since mom goes back to work tonight and has to work 8 days straight. They are doing this clearance thing where mom has to scan all the clearance items in the store and they pull the old stuff and donate it. They use to do it twice a year but now it's only once a year. It will take a day or 2 to get it all done but mom's pretty fast with scanning so that is why she always gets this job!
Your new box sound interesting!! I bet it would be fun to spend some time nibbling on that!! Pistachios would not work with me! I love them but mom has figured out that the only treat I will go for every time is pancakes!! It presents some challenges as far as training goes! Hey! I just love pancakes!
Please give mom and the flock our love and you all enjoy your day!!

A really HUGE ZON HUG from me to you!!

I just became more popular, if only for a brief moment! Please tell aunt Denise thanks for the phone call last night, she is a wealth of knowledge, concerning parrots, and my daddy trusts her implicitly! Happy hump day everybody, we are still locked into this spotty rain and overcast thing, we need some sunlight to brighten our days! Today is Visiting Nurse day, but it should be strictly routine, dad has his problems under control thanks to his VA doctors, and a lot of effort! I hope you are all having a great day, all of us are doing well! Give my love to Alfie and all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

Much love from Jenny & my family, thanks for stopping by, you made me feel special

PS~BTW, the VA Nurse left awhile ago, & all of dad's vitals are at or above the excepted normals! His nurse was impressed, especially for his BP & BS levels! She also showed him how to put on his panty hose, I never thought I would live to see my tough old daddy in hosiery, but I would not laugh at him for anything, he still has an attitude, LOL...

  and to the dump every Friday!My dad has this week off for vacation and he's been busy changing the oil in his car and shop vac-ing the cellar,sun room and garage from all the cob webs that are there.Skin sis is still in her apartment and slowly taking her stuff out of our house so Mom can get three rooms back and free from clutter.Everyone and every birdie else here is doing really good so far and we have been enjoying the warm 70 degree weather we've been having lately and its going to be 74 here tomorrow,and warm on Thursday too but we're going to have torrential rain again then!
Thank you for liking my profile picture!Now my Mom and I have to give your wonderful amazing Mom credit for that one because if it wasn't for her my Mom wouldn't have a clue and she wouldn't be able to do all the things she can do now on her computer!Mom loves to practice things that your awesome Mom had taught her.She's hoping one day to try the ipod thing again and make another movie,now if she can only stay home long enough to do so!LOL!

is so eggcited to see RaneBeau on his page!He runs to give him the biggest little GCC hug he can muster!Oh RaneBeau!I have missed you sooo sooo much and I was just thinking of you too?And here you are there on my page,how awesome is that? I too can't believe that October is nearly done already and soon we'll be heading into Thanksgiving again!
These past two weeks have been busy and Mom had to take me to the vet two weeks ago because I had a big red bump on my eye ring.She had tried to give me hot compresses for two weeks but it wouldn't go away so she finally had to call the vet and the vet cut the bump off my eye ring and for the last two weeks I've been on antibiotics and eye drops,antibiotics every 12 hours and the eye drops in my incision 3 times a day!And those eye drops sure did sting the incision.But now my incision is closing up and my eye is looking much better,and Mom is hoping it was all because of my sinuses and nothing else.So I'm on three different meds at all different times of the day and night!My toes are all twisted now and one toe just won't bend at all and is stuck straight out all the time.Mom is constantly giving me warm foot soaks and lots of massages on my toes and legs especially my toes just to untangle them so I can stand up.Its pure pain whenever Mom has to clip my nails as she has to twist my toes facing front so she can see what she's doing and sometimes I have three toes facing forward which makes it hard for me to even perch on a flat surface and Mom spends hours trying to get that back toe facing the back where it belongs!That is a very painful process for me.But Mom makes sure that after the dinner dishes are done she comes for me and snuggles with me under my blanket which is wrapped around her neck so I can go with her wherever she has to go.
Oh RaneBeau you are so awesome asking for a kiss like that to keep you safe from getting put back in the cage!That great big wooden box that your sweet Momma and Dad made for you really sounds quite interesting!If only I could come and play with you in it!Can you imagine all the fun we'd have? Now how come no one wants to squeeze themselves into your room so you can have your new box behind the door the way you want it?I think that box sounds so awesome as big almost as your own kitchen cabinet,how awesome is that?I say to build you a door so you can have it just the way you want it!I so agree with you that being indoors all the time now is just too boring to take and to not feel the warm sunshine on my sore toes and feet is hard to take,the last two BBQ's my family had we all had to stay inside while they were outside,freezing,silly parronts,but they still got to enjoy the late afternoon sunshine and all the pretty colors on the trees and all the birds on the feeders and bird bath!The week before Mom was grilling outside in the rain!
Nana can no longer drive because she is still seeing double vision and Mom is doing all the driving around to take her on her errands

  Hi RaneBeau,
Thanks so much for stopping by. Sorry you can't play for the team this year. I'm glad you told me so I know that you won't be at the games. I will be taking over the team this season. I do need some pictures. I kept the same team name so you won't have to do them all over again. But I have some new players and I will need a new coach picture. I will blog you the new names this week. I would appreciate it if you can do them. Thanks so much for your help.

  Hey RaneBone bubba, from your Jen Lynn
...I am probably the last parrot you wanted to see on your page, but none the less, here I am ol' buddy, deal with it, LOL! I promise not to kick you in the knee caps this time! I hope all the CBL's are having a great time at Parrot Palooza, we sure do miss them and their friendly notes that always cheered us up! We are having a typical early Fall day chilly, overcast, and with rain expected! Dad has a lot to do today, or I should say finish, but we will be mixing in a little football as well, to keep dad's blood pressure up! Oz's mom Deb sent us the book "The Parrot Who Owns Me", dad said he can relate and is looking forward to reading it! Have a peaceful Sunday my dear friends, and give my love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

Hi Pretty Rainbow,
Did you miss my blog from 9/5? Maybe your Mom is in Colorado or somewhere else. I hope everything is all right at your place. Well, my Daddy FINALLY came home from the nursing/rehab facility two weeks ago. Then Wed. afternoon Mommy had to take him into the hosptial again as his ostomy was blocked. They didn't get it unblocked until later the following night. He was in a lot of pain. Mommy brought him home again last night. He's doing ok now. I wish he'd stay out of that place. He's been in there and the nursing facility since Jan. 17th with a few weeks break in May and July. It's been a long year for him. Anyway, I thought I'd just drop in and say"Hi". I miss you big fella!
Lots of Love and Big Hugs from Little Miss Lucy♥

It's that time again for our basketball season!

I will be taking over the Warriors team this year. Each player will keep the positions they had last year. We will be having practices and games each week starting in October. The times and days will be announced at a later date. Feel free to use the stadium starting now or anytime during the season to practice on your own. We now have an avatar to make it easier to get to the Warriors team page.

Please blog me back to let me know if you are still interested in participating on the team this season.

Thank you! Have a good day!! Leaving you a vote.

It was a nice day but not as warm as it should have been. Maybe tomorrow will be better.

Come visit me, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  Hi RaneBeau,
I will be taking over the BB team for the Warriors this season! We have our players from last year but plan on
getting new members as well. Would you be so kind to make pictures for the new players and coach?

Please blog me back to let me know! If you can do it, I will send you the names of the players. You do not have to make any from last year. We will keep the same ones. Thank you so much. Please let me know either way.

Leaving a vote for you. Have a good evening!

Your friend,

Come visit me, Chipper.

  Hi RaneBeau
It's hard to believe that Bailey left us 3 years ago on Sunday (21st). Mom still misses him a lot.
I'm back! I was happy to see mom back home again. She had a wonderful time at the Hall & Oates concert. It was only 53 degrees (outdoor concert downstate) and Daryl and John never took off their jackets. The audience was so bundled up! I hear that it should be a bit warmer for a few days ... hope so!
Sad to say but fall is here :(

  Hi RaneBeau
Hope you are having a better weekend than here!
Today is a dark, dreary, cold and very wet day ... go away rain!
This will be my last blog until Monday. Mom is going downstate to see a concert. Dad won't blog for me.
Have a greyt weekend.

Come visit me, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  Hi Ranebeau
Let Reba do all the work and just step through the hole she makes! That sounds like a winning idea!
Thanks for the well wishes. My side doesn't feel as hard to mom, so maybe that's a good sign. I am still giving her a hard time with the meds, though.
I feel good enough to be dancing at the wedding today. It's at 4 eastern, hope to see you there.
Mom had a training type tour this morning to help the people who work in the halls. She took them through cenozoic and mesozoic halls and gave them some background on the exhibits. It was fun, different from any tour she's ever done. Then she had a tour in mammal hall for the general public. It was one of those mini tours, and she finished in 35 minutes, YAY. That's supposed to be the time frame for those.
I hope you are getting lots of good weather today, we sure are! May your day be filled with sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Congrats to Kaji!, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hello RaneBeau~
How wonderful to hear from you!!! You know you are all in our thoughts and prayers everyday!!

Can you believe that this is the last day of summer??? I do love Autumn though! All that lovely squash and the beautiful colors! Just make my heart go pitter patter!

Dad is doing fine. The truck is in the shop being repaired and it should be ready anytime now. Dad is off at Costco right now looking at computers. Mom is praying that he is just looking and not buying but it's dad and I have told you he is very dangerous in a Costco!

Everything else around here is pretty boring actually. Mom has the last week of September off and she is going to paint the bathrooms. I might be camping out in the play cage one night until the smell is all gone. She is using the less smelly kind of paint so hopefully it will only be one night. She wants to get the car into the shop too. Lots of stuff needs to be done and mom wants them to check out dad's installation of the new water pump. It's been fine but this was the first time he had ever done one!!

You all enjoy the day and I know that you will figure out a way through the new fence very shortly! You are the most brilliant bird I know so I have faith that this will be easy for you! Don't think your mom is going to like it much though!

You still are the main attraction on dad's phone and people all over think you are just perfection! They are correct!

Big Zon Hugs from me to you!
Love you buddy ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi RaneBeau
Thanks for the congrats. That was pretty good to do in 3 years, right?
So, hope all is well there in the warm weather. I envy you able to get outside and sun. Hmmm, what is with that fence in YOUR room? Sounds like you get blamed for everything. Unfair I say!!!!! I think Arthur need to ask for your forgiveness.
Yes, that was nice of the BC to put up a few pics ... they should have more by now. I don't even see it any more.
Falco is doing fine and taking meds.
The weather here is so cold that dad's fishing trip didn't go well. They all left early for home. Mom will be gone on Sunday and most of Monday. She's going to a concert to see her Daryl Hall & John Oates.
It's just so cold ... we didn't get our summer or beach weather :(
Happy to hear from you. Mom was afraid that she wore out her welcome asking for pics.
What a greyt day! I hit the 20K at 1AM, thanks to my sweetie Scoober. Then, it was Talk Like A Pirate Day! I did my best. Today was a high of 65, partly sunny and rain tonight. The T-storms are back and will hit us from 2AM thru 8PM on Saturday.
I want to thank all of you who have voted for me. I wouldn't have this honor without you.

Come visit me, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  I've been thinking of you...
And just had to fly by to see that all is well. You look wonderful! It's so very neat that you have had yet another Bird of the Day, and in August! I had one in August, too and was so surprised. Birds of a feather, as they say. This year has brought lots of challenges and excitement. I've traveled quite a bit but still call the Rocky Mountains home. The humans adopted a cat that the vet thinks is crossed with a bobcat. She is a neat critter, but has big ideas, and feet and muscles to match. We really have to keep an eye on her and refer to her as assassin cat. I think that she probably ate quite a few of our feathered brethren when she was a wild stray. I also had a bout with illness. I felt lousy, but I really enjoyed all of the special cuddle time and syringe feedings. They were great and I'm trying to talk mom into more towel-cuddle time. Other than that, time just keeps ticking along.

Wishing you all good things and hoping you had a wonderful summer. Fall will be here in a week and it is time to enjoy the cooler temps and lovely leaves. Cheers, my friend, and ciao for now. ~Sarabi

  Hi RaneBeau
Grab your snowshoes and come on up here!!!!

What a cold and dreary day we had. The high temps were 48 to 52 degrees ... BRRR! I had to wear my hoodie to keep warm.
Today we remember all the people lost in the WTC, Pentagon and Shanksville PA ... keeping them and the survivors in our thoughts and prayers.

  Hi Dorky Dude, from your favorite ZonGal, Jen Lynn
This is 9/11, 13 years later, it has become a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance! It was such a terrible tragedy, 3000 innocent lives taken in a heartbeat! I read somewhere that the Muslim Jihadist celebrate this day, for the "Martyrs" that did this dastardly thing, can you believe it! On a much brighter side, today is our dear Debi Willis' special day, Happy Birthday dear lady friend! Give my love to our dear aunt Denny, and all in your Thursday home, see ya tomorrow...

Love from Jenny & my Patriotic Dallas family

  Hi RaneBeau
Fall will be only a few weeks this year!!!

I thought I'd come over and let you know.
Well, we are back to rain and mid 50's. Looks like "summer" is over. I really don't remember it at all this year! Time to get the coats and snow shoes ready ... GRRR!
I did get some new toys to destroy and that's a good thing.

  Hi Ranebeau sweetie!
I want to thank everybirdy for their prayers! Mila's family is truly grateful! We all know the power of prayer is a powerful thing...but we are all in shock over little Mila's progress. She had brain surgery 7:30am on Friday. When the surgeons went in, they discovered that some of what was tumor, was actually scar tissue from her surgery lastyyear, & sort of made a pocket that the larger tumor was sitting in. They were able to ENTIRELY remove BOTH tumors! On Saturday, she was moved to a regular room & they had her up walking! On Sunday, less than 48hrs upon completion of her surgery, MILA WAS SENT HOME...TRULY A MIRACLE!!!
Mila's family would still appreciate ur prayers. Since this cancer came back so quickly & aggressively, doctors are going to treat it very aggressively with chemo & radiation. Mila is doing wonderfullly! She has to take it easy, but she's up & playing with all of her princess toys! She'll walk up to u, give u a hug & tell u that she has a boo-boo & that herhhead hurts. It's truly amazing & miraculous! All things are possible with God!
Love from
TiaMaria & Mom Sandy

  Day 8--Chestico Festival dance lessons
Hello everybirdie; What a greyt time we had on the beach. The bikini competition was amazing, and we only had to pull three of the boys off the stage. LOL! It was so much fun getting a chance to see all the latest European styles and designs. Between the warm surf and the savory foods it has been an eggciting visit in Port Hood. Today we get our chance to watch, and try our talented talons in some Celtic dancing, and maybe even put our beaks to the bagpipes and play some Gaelic tunes. The Interpretative Celtic Music Center is open to visitors, who can try not only the bagpipes, but also their wings at being a drummer as well.
"Hey L'il Angel, what are you dressed like that for?" Angel Girl asks her fister, eying up Little Angel's new Celtic tartan kilt.
"I'm going to take Highland dancin' lessons today" L'il Angel says putting her tam on her head and looking at herself in her mirror.
"Dixie? Are you ready sweetheart?" L'il Angel yells into the tent door.
Slowly Dixie exits the tent, his face blushed red. He looks around quickly making sure the coast is clear. HE is wearing a kilt too, complete with a sash over hi shoulders. " We're taking Scottish dance lessons" It was then that Dixie saw that many of the other birds were sporting kilts in various Tartans ( Clan colors).
"See, we all are had the same idea" Sky says walking past in his kilt (Feileadh-beag - pr: feela beg). Sky stands tall, and smiles. "It's birdly. It's not a dress Dixie!"
"Hi SamIAm, you off to the bagpipe lessons?" Kaji asks, reining in his horse, " That's were Lizzie Pookie and I are riding too. Com' on with us"
The birds mount up and head off to the Music center and the MacInnis Sportsplex. There is Celtic music, dancing demonstrations and more Scottish foods to try today. Tomorrow is the Triathlon. Many famous fiddle-players, Celtic musicians from as far away as Scotland, British Columbia, Canada and the USA have arrived for the days concerts, lessons and fun.
At the Celtic Music Center, Snowflake, Little Angel, Cookie and Cydney stand as the instructor Patricia Chafe shows them the first dance steps. 'Ok, one, two, three..." Little Angel takes the first two steps then suddenly making a quick turn on one foot, she trips sending Cydney falling into Snowflake. The three girls giggle as they lay on the floor in a jumbled heap at Cookie's feet. "Ok, let's try this again. Maybe you should stand over here, Little Angel" Pat says, walking her to the other side of the line. The three girls do the steps again, perfectly. Then the others join them, as the fiddles play a quick tune. The laughing birdies have lots of fun, learning to dance. After a few lessons, they sit down to watch some experienced dancers for a while. " We did greyt" Dixie says happily as he hugs LA close.
"Ok Sky and BB. You're turn" Sky leads BB in a graceful Highland Waltz. Everybirdie applauds their performance. "WE practiced!" BB says

  Hi RaneBeau
Just another update for you. I miss you my friend.
Northern Michigan still has 1500 people without power, we are lucky to get ours back. They said that we had four consecutive severe t-storms and that's why it lasted so long. My dad says that was the most impressive lighting he has ever seen, I don't like that and neither does mom. We also didn't like those loud thunder booms that lasted for hours shaking our house. It's nice to be peaceful again ... ahhhh a good night's sleep.

Come visit me, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  Hi RaneBeau
I miss you! I hope you can come back to the BC soon.
Here's what you missed by not flying up here....
I'm back! What a week we had ... tornado, severe t-storms, flooding ... so many power lines and trees down on roads! Last night was an all night LOUD t-storm with no power. We finally got our power and internet (and phones) back tonight. I was scared and whimpering a lot. I didn't like that very LOUD noise that shook the house for hours. Mom made me take a long nap today and early to bed tonight. We were lucky, only a few trees down with power lines on two different nights. We lost trees on our property too. Hope every bird is fine, missed you.

Hi Pretty Rainbow,
How did I ever miss your big day? A very belated congratualtions on being our BOTD Aug. 23rd! I have been so remiss in my blogs to you. Please forgive me. Not much is new in my house except that my Mommy has been bringing my Daddy home almost everyday for the past week. That has really helped his outlook and attitude. He was SO depressed before. After he has his morning IV antibiotics, Mommy picks him up and then returns him before his evening IV is due. He has just under three weeks left at the rehab facility, and he's counting the days. It's so nice having him around again since he's been gone most of the time since Jan. 17th of this year. I hope all is happy at your home and your Mom and family are all well. You are forever my pretty Rainbow, and I send you great bunches of love and hugs.
XOXO, Little Miss Lucy♥♥

  Hi Ranebeau sweetie!
Hi everybirdy!
Tia here, sorry I haven't been around in quite awhile, sooooo much has been going on, I'll let u know all about it. Mom FINALLY unpacked the box that contained her notebook that has everybirdy's page #s! Today, mom & I ask for ur prayers.

A good friend of mom's has an adorable 4 yr old daughter, Mila. The past 14 months have been a horrific nightmare for Dawn, Mila's mother. Mila was born with Li Fraumeni Syndrome, which is an EXTREMELY RARE genetic condition. Certain receptors shut off & leaves that person very prone to cancer. Last summer, Mila began acting strangely...bobbing her head around, running into things, suddenly falling down & grabbing her head & screaming. Her pediatrician immediately ordered a brain MRI. Dawnh& Neil were devastated to learn that their precious 3 yr old daughter had Choroid Plexus Carcinoma, an EXTREMELY RARE & very aggressive brain cancer. Mila had brain surgery 3 days later. It was touch & go for the 1st week, they had to restart her heart 4 times. Miraculously, she made it thru, although she spent 3 months in intensive care. She was released fromthe hospital 2 days before Christmas...a true Christmas miracle...Mila had ABSOLUTELY NO mental deficit! Since then, she must have an MRI every 3 months. All of them had been perfectly spotless - until her MRI last week.

Mila now has 2 aggressive tumors - the larger one, the size of a small navel orange, & the other is a bit larger than a golfball. The larger one is in the same spot as the one removed last year, but it is tangled in her nerves & has been deemed inoperable. She will once again have to endure chemotherapy & this time start radiation. The smaller tumor will be removed. I just spoke to her mom Dawn, they will be leaving for Children's Hosp in Pittsburgh in a couple hrs. Mila will be having brain surgery tomorrow morning at 7:30am. to remove the smaller tumor & hopefully be able to remove part at least part of the larger one. We are all heartbroken that this precious little girl hasto go thru tthis again. I hope all our dear friends will say a special prayer for Mila, that God in Heaven will once again restore her health! Thank you my dear friends & God Bless u all.
TiaMaria & mom Sandy

Come visit me, TiaMaria.
