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!


20 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.

  Hi RaneBeau
It was quite the ordeal here Thursday night! It's funny now but mom wasn't laughing then! Her biggest concern was keeping me warm, & I was nice and toasty warm! Mom dressed warm & put the coats on the wiener dogs. Mom & the dogs slept on the couch under a stack of blankets and the kitty cats slept on top of mom. It wasn't mom's most comfortable night but all stayed warm! As for me, all 3 heaters were around my house and I was nice and toasty warm!

We are very glad that the furnace didn't quit today, we never made it out of the single digits today! Right now, 3:30 pm it's 8° with a wind chill of 9° BELOW ZERO! We are under wind chill advisory until 9am tomorrow. Tonight it's going down to -9° and wind chill values as low as -20°! We are not used to this kind of cold! It is going to warm up tho, Mon-Wed it will be in the mid 30's and Fri thru next Tues it will be in the mid 40's...that's going to feel like a heat wave! Hopefully mom's car window will thaw out! She doubts it's the motor, had a new one installed a little over a year ago.

I hope your day was a good one!

  Hi RaneBeau
I'm so happy you enjoyed your special 20th hatchday! You don't look your age at all.
Glad to hear that you are all fired up for the derby. It will be here sooner than you know it. I will be shopping for hats soon. We also plan on the jockey/horse draw on March 1st. I will keep you posted of course.
Sorry about your winter weather. I'm enjoying it down here. We don't miss the winter at all. I'm a Floridian bird for sure.

We had a nice sunny day of 73. My parronts went to the beach for a while. Mom said the ocean was cold. Later, I went outside to listen to the birds and get some sun on my feathers. It felt good. Looks like we'll have the same for the weekend.

  Hi RaneBeau
Oh I would never ever think of missing your very special day and I too just can't believe that you're 20 either!And Mom keeps thinking back to that sweet baby Harlequin that she and Nana saved for her breeder friend that was only three weeks old and so sick.All Mom could think about was you driving all that way to pick him up and she called him RaneBeau.You have really made my day so bright and sunny and warm by coming by to see me again,you just don't know how much I've missed you so much!Oh RaneBeau,my Mom knows that you are so special to me and I have to be there for you!Mom is treating my eye on her own right now as the vet said my eye was going to be fine and I'll be looking through my cornea with a shadow forever there in my view.And its getting stuck closed mostly at night so Mom is putting saline drops in my eye to lubricate it and to make it feel better.Mom gives me wing massages every night for an hour so my wings don't atrophy as I can't use them anymore and they've become so painful when Mom tries to pick me up.I can't perch anymore as my toes are so twisted and my nails are deformed sideways and my one foot I walk on it like a stump now.My other foot one toe sticks out straight and doesn't bend,its frozen pointed out.Sometimes I'll fall off my platform perch and fall on my back and I can't get myself righted and have to lay there til Mom comes in for me.Mom is so nervous that I'll fall and hurt myself or not be able to get up when she's out all day.When Mom and Dad went to visit Aunt Tanya in New Jersey at the end of the Summer Kallie,Candida and I went with them and it was so much fun!All our travel cages took up the whole back seat and Candida got carsick all the way up and back!Then in October we got to go to Pennsylvania and stayed with Aunt Janet.Mom was so happy that Kallie got to enjoy going on vacation with us before he left for Rainbow Bridge.We still miss him and Mom still can't go back to his page.My appetite is still good and my Mom makes me some special things and lets me eat on the dining table with her and my dad but I have to stay in my travel cage because Candida owns my daddy and I'm not allowed to get near him or she beats me up.
Oh how awful this arctic vortex is,its so cold out now and getting worse for tomorrow!Because of this cold,Mom refuses to take me for a car ride with her to Nana's house and I hate that because I love riding on my car seat!
RaneBeau,I'm constantly thinking of you,you are always in my heart and if you only knew just how much I really and truly miss you!But I know just how busy our Mom's are and its getting to be so hard for my Mom to be on BC every day as things seem to have gotten into fast forward with everyone here needing her,between Nana being in such pain after a year with her hip surgery and now skin sis with her second hip dysplaysia surgery and my dad constantly working the snow and blizzards,we got that foot of snow last weekend and more snow for tomorrow,having to be ready wi

  Hi RaneBeau
Mom had a really bad day yesterday. On the way home from her Dr appt, mom put the window down to pay the Turnpike toll & the window would not go back up. It was 20° and she almost froze driving home. She couldn't wait to get home & get warm. She no sooner walked in the door & the furnace quit working. Mom got out the electric heaters & put 2 of them by my house and kept me nice and toasty warm. The furnace didn't get fixed until this afternoon, but it's working fine now!

I hope your day was a good one!

We finally now have electricity, phone, internet, and TV, and all at the same time, what a long two days, I would not wish this pain and anxiety on my worst enemy, and I do not ever want to live trough this ever again! Please forgive our temporary absence, we really hate it when we can't even say a simple hello to our dearest friends! Dad is so dedicated our friends, that on occasion he wakes up in the middle of the night, thinking he might have forgotten somebody! We will be back in the morning, that's a promise, TGIF everybody, give our love all in your happy home see ya tomorrow...

  Hi Ranebeau
Well, to each his own: my favorite present lately was the local (thin) phone book. Mom gave it to me yesterday and I've been busy with it ever since. So a tee doesn't sound weird to me at all! If that's what you love, that's what you should have. If mom needs encouragement to crochet, tell her to call my mom. We're on the BC directory. Mom doesn't do much hand work any more because her hands ache after a few minutes, but she still has tons of yarn and lots of cross stitch projects to do. Did you notice the new chair with the wolf pillow in my gallery? Mom cross stitched that wolf pillow and another one several years ago, then used extra fabric from a flannel shirt she had made for the backing.
We had more nuisance snow overnight. It's just a little, but enough to make walking the dogs a bit slippery this morning. Mom got through it, though, and swept and salted walk and driveway again. It's supposed to get REALLY cold this weekend, but no more snow is predicted. We'll see how that goes, haha.
At the end of the summer, mom told all her pool buddies that she would organize a lunch sometime over the winter. Yesterday she finally did just that. She texted, called, and emailed everyone with the details, and they are all meeting at a local restaurant for lunch on Feb. 23. She even arranged a snow date: if it's miserable on the 23rd, they will meet the following week, same time, same place.
Mom is going out to dinner tonight with her sis and brother in law. She is going to take a quick peek at their lunch menu because this is the restaurant she has chosen for the get together.
That's all the news that's fit to print. I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Stay warm (or cool, if you're in CA). Hugs, Falco

  Morning RaneBro-from Jenny & Angel Christy
...well look at you, you can still draw a crowd, thanks for responding on our page, that made us feel important! This morning the Electric Company will be coming to install our new service box thingy! That means no electricity all day long, no computer, no TV, and no heat, and on one of our coldest days of the year! We do not want a miracle, we simply want to get back to normal, and have things the way they always used be! Hopefully by tomorrow the electric grid in our home will be restored to a safe working order! Dad's nurse gave him a good numbers report yesterday, but his BP was slightly elevated, probably because of concern for the power problem in our home! We may not make it to all your pages today, but we'll be back, we promise! Have a great day, and give our love to all in your happy home, Cya tomorrow...

  Hi, RaneBeau
Always fun to help our friends celebrate their hatchdays. We think your mom feels like you've been part of the family so long doesn't remember how it felt before you were there (or something like that). We know you will always be grateful to Saber for mentioning your name even though he wasn't necessarily doing it out of fondness.

We are doing well. No complaints and things are much the same with us. Been raining a tad bit each week all winter eggcept this week it has been overly warm. Think the recent SuperBowl activities persuaded mother nature to make the temps nice with lots of sunshine but it is over now so can get back to being cool and rainy. Good to keep your mom busy with the sweeping!

Have a wonderful day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Well, rest up after cause it's almost derby time. This is the jockey sign up month and the names and horses will be drawn on March 1st. I have this year's horses posted on the Derby Farms page. Is your mom ready for Milonga Derby 6??? I hope so.
This morning the new sofa arrived. I had to check it out and give my approval (see pics).
Tonight it's going down to the 30's brrrr. Then, if the weather people are right ... the warm up begins. I can hardley wait! I need to get some warm sun asap!

Wishing you the bestest day every RaneBeau!I have so missed you,things here have been hectic with all this snow and my dad working non stop and working overnights,when he does come home he's constantly sleeping like he is right now!
This morning had a bright sunny start to it but soon faded into a dark snowy/drizzly type of day and it got colder as the day wore on.The highs for the day were 34 the lows of 25 and its 30 right now at 9:00pm.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages,fed us our bean mix and swept our room.Dad never came home last night because by the time they were finished with snow removal it was time for him to begin his regular hours.So he stayed at work.He called Mom around 4:30am so she would have a fresh thermos of coffee ready for him and some coffee creamer when he came by in a half hour or so.Mom got it ready and he grabbed it and took off again back to work.Mom then left us both home here while she took off to Nana's to pay their Comcast bill and to run some errands.When Mom got to Nana's house she tried to fix her heat box and cleaned out the filter and then unplugged it until they got back from their errands.Mom and Nana got in Mom's car and they went to Falmouth to pay Comcast first and from there they went to The Dollar Tree where Nana got some things she needed,from there they went to Stop&Shop in Falmouth,then they went back to Mashpee where they went to Asia (Chinese)for lunch,Nana got shrimp and mixed veggies and Mom got hunan shrimp with veggies and they both got brown rice to go with it.From there they went back to Nana's house and Mom finished fixing the heat box and got it going again and checked out the heat box that Nana had in the Bird Room,she got that going and then unpacked Nana's groceries and helped put them away.Nana made them some tea and they had some cookies that Nana made and then Mom left to go home as it was after 4:00pm and skin sis was coming over with Peepers and Celine so Mom could keep them here with us until after her surgery was over.She's having her other hip operated on for hip display sure and has to be outside the Boston area at 5:30am tomorrow morning and its a 2 and a half hour drive from here and could be longer because of all the snow.Mom came home and unpacked the car,put all the groceries away,cleaned our cages and fed us our snacks as our dad came home and made himself some popcorn and went right up to bed.After being home for several hours he came down looking for dinner and Mom made him a cheese omelet with pan fried cinnamon and sugar toast.Then in the middle of it all skin sis came

Happy Hatchday sweetie! I hope you enjoyed your special day!

Poor Liv, she still has pink eye & she also has a stomach virus! It hasn't been a good week for her! Mom hasn't been on BC the past 2 days because we were taking care of Livi and she spent the night last night. I love the grandkiddos sooooo much, but they don't like me chasing them around, but they do like giving me kisses!

We are in for some really cold weather. Between now and Sunday the high temps will be in the teens and low 20's and the low temps will be in the single digits! On Saturday the temp will be around 11°/-2° and very windy & with the wind chill it could feel like -20°! That's way too cold!

  Hi Again!
Well, after much scheming on the part of Mom and Dad, I got another sunbath today. The temp is 85, so we got out there at 11:30 (Mom was aiming for 11:15). I had parked myself on the top of the bookcase in my room so Mom got Dad to open the door, but that just got me to Mom's shoulder which won't work. So he came into the room a bit, and I headed for her lap...and got scooped up and into the carrier. It was very nice outside, so I really can't complain.

We shared the last of the gumbo for lunch, and Mom made Dad sniff it (he has super sniffer nose) to make sure it was still good. He said OK, but Mom figures one more day and it was history. We were both tired of it.

This is Wednesday, so Mom will be at the gym from 4-6, much to my disgust. Why can't she stay home like she ought to? **sigh**

To answer about Dad, he is doing much better but is still out on medical leave until the 22nd. Mom is waiting to hear from the doc's office about a procedure to deal with her acid reflux which has come back. Pretty sure insurance is saying no to what he wants to do. Oh well.... I am dandy!!

  Happy belated Hatchday RB, from JL & Christy
...you and your sweet momma have been dear friends of ours since we first signed on to the BC, we love you guys, always have, and always will! Things are starting to look a little bit better at our home, the furnace is temporarily repaired, and the TV digital converter box is working again! My goodness, here it is hump day again, and dad's nurse is coming today to recheck a few things about him and reinstate his VA Home Health Care approval! It is bitter cold here with temps of well below zero, and it will be that way all week, come on Spring time! We all feel sorry for the outside birdies, they are still looking around for food, so we feed them, they need to maintain their body heat! Have a great Wednesday, and give our love to all in your warm and happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Hump day love from Jenny, Angel Christy, Ms LaLo, Ziggy, & daddy Dallas

  Morning sweet RB-love from Jennifer & Christy
Yesterday our morning started out really bad and got worse as the day wore on! I am not going to go into all the boring details, but our furnace stopped cycling, and we need a new very expensive service box, and the kitchen TV stopped working! The TV repair man is coming out this afternoon, and the furnace repair person made it work temporarily, we'll know more about that today! We hope your week started better than ours, have a great ToosDay, and give our sincere love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow! We will be writing fewer notes today and tomorrow, but we thought you should know why...

Forever love, from Jenny, Christy, LaLo, Ziggy. and our quickly going broke daddy...
We absolutely need heat for us tropical parrots

  Hello RaneBeau~
I hope you are having a great day! We are having a little Puppy Bowl party. Don't really care about the Super Bowl. We just hope it's a fun game and that everyone has a great time.
Mom has been filing the papers we sorted out this week. That is one big job done. Now she just has to make sure everyone keeps up with filing! There is a big box of papers for dad to go through when he gets home. I'm sure he will just love doing it!
Mom has 2 more nights so we are going to enjoy them! Jennifer is home and she is watching Agents of Shield. We have seen them but she hasn't. I don't mind seeing them again.
I hope you have a great day! Please give mom and the flock our love!
Amazing Amazon hugs from me to you!

  Super Sunday morning Mr RanBeau-from JL & Christy
Today is Superbowl Sunday, traditionally a very fun day, but not so much this year! Dad went to the store to pick up our supplies so as to have it out of the way, he even bought a bucket of hot wings/honey wings and potato salad, yummo, we'll be getting some of that stuff! Dad has been invited to many of his friend's SB parties, but told them all he would rather just stay home with all of us! We will cheer for the Broncos and Peyton Manning, for whatever good that will do! Don't forget the puppy bowl on Animal Planet! Thank you Mary Haines for the lovely Valentine card, you have to stop being so sweet to us! Have a great day dear BC bowl friends, and give our love to all in your party home, see ya all tomorrow...

Super love from Jenny, LaLo, Ziggy, Christy, & daddy Dallas

  Hi ya RaneBeau~
I hope the day was great! I took a shower today and it felt good. I had been feeding McKenzie some of my treats and then decided that we both needed to get cleaned up! She started barking at me when I dumped the water on her so I know she really enjoyed it! She got toweled off and I just air dried!
Mom took Jennifer down to visit her dad this morning so I got some quiet time! I got another piece of my hatchday cake after lunch. It was lovely.
The rest of the day was spent chasing puppy and trying to get chores done. We are now going to relax and get my notes done and perhaps watch a movie. It is very rare for mom to have a Saturday night off so we are going to make the most of it!
Please give mom and the flock our love!
Amazing Amazon Hugs from me to you!

  Hi sweet buddy boy-from Jen & Christy
Our dad rested a lot yesterday and is feeling much better today, at any rate we are back at our normal routine! It is slightly warmer today, but the weather is an ever-changing and volatile thing, so we try not to let it bother us to badly! I think most of our humans have little medical issues they deal with on a regular basis, and we do not want to bore anybody with ours! Life is good, but you must never give up, keep on keeping on! Have a great Saturday and give our love to all in your fabulous family, see ya all tomorrow dear hearts...

Love forever from Jen, Christy. LaLo, Ziggy, & daddy Dallas

PS~We do not want to be special, we just want to get back to ordinary, like the old times, just love us and be our friends, it will pay off in the end....
