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.

  Howdy my friend!
Mom will try to get a good picture of ginormous-cat for my page. For some reason mega-kitten loathes cameras and instantly senses when the phone has gone to photo mode, so it's a bit of a challenge. As for my vest, it turns out I have a special talent. I can tell when my niece is about to have an episode of FMD, and a quick interaction from me can help stop the episode. I'm trying to help train my Conure cousin to do the same thing, since I really don't want to leave my flock to help with hers full time. (FMD is Functional Movement Disorder.) All I need to do is hang out on a shoulder and take action when needed. It's cool to have a special talent. I have no doubt that we all do, I just had an opportunity to show it off. I'll keep you posted on mom's success or failure with the whole monster-kitty photo session business. Ciao for now! ~Sarabi

  Hi RaneBeau
I would think your mom would put up a snow pic with you if not a Christmas one. I think she needs to come here and take some snow home with her. I hope she got my email with snow pics taken today.
Well, we are back to cold and snow. Looks like a good peppermint hot chocolate day around here. I can drink it while watching dad plow the snow. He must like to do that cause he does it a lot ... must be fun. I just don't see it.

Hey you handsome ref ... where's your Christmas pic? It's less than 2 weeks away.

Mom just put up a pic of me by my tree. I think your mom should keep it in her Chyna folder as it's recent and clear (for once).

Today was a no snow no sun just cold day. They say the snow will be back on Tuesday night. I understand that many birds will not have a white Christmas. Therefore I'm offering our snow to any bird who wants it. Have a warm and cozy night.

You look so very handsome in your ref uniform!
Well, here we are in December already. I was kind of thinking that I'd see your mom sledding on our hills ... hehehehe.
I have one more vet visit before FL ... to get my Interstate Travel paper. Fly down and enjoy the pool with me.
It was a dark and dreary day but in the mid 20's. I had my vet grooming appointment today. I think I should get a special prize for not screaming. I just clenched my toes really tight. I was giggling at that ... hehehe. He didn't even put OPI on my nails, how rude!

  `Ü´ Are you ready for some FOOT~BALL???
A 3rd Annual Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl Game of … FOOT~BALL???

This evening … to be played on the Milonga Page (#165848)

8:00 pm Eastern
7:00 pm Central
6:00 pm Mountain
5:00 pm Pacific
4:00 pm Aleutian

Jake <Ö) may have been a “BAD Parrot”, but he says it well: “Be there or BE SQUARE!!!”

Well, the Defense still needs to know their jobs, so without any further delay, let’s get started with the Job Descriptions, Mr RaneBeau!

Strong Safety – Generally lines up in the secondary*, but often aligns close to the line of scrimmage In most Defenses this Player lines up over the Tight End and is responsible for both playing the pass and supporting the run.

Free Safety – Lines up deepest in the secondary. He defends the deep middle of the field and seldom has man-to-man** responsibilities. A coach wants this Player free to read the QuarterBack and take the proper angle to break up or intercept any forward pass thrown over the middle or deep to the sidelines.

Defensive Back – A member of the Defensive secondary. Defensive Backs form the line of Defense whose job is to prevent Receivers from making catches and then gaining lots of yards after the catch.

CornerBack – Lines up on one of the wide sides of the field, usually opposite an offensive Receiver. Called a CornerBack because he is isolated on the “corner” edge of the Defensive alignment.

Defensive End – Lines up at the end of the Defensive line. The job of the Defensive End is to contain the Running Back on running plays to the outside, and rush the QuarterBack*** on passing plays.

Defensive Tackle – Lines up on the interior of the Defensive line. The duties of a Defensive Tackle include stopping the Running Back on running plays, getting pressure up the middle on passing plays, and occupying Blockers so the LineBackers can roam free.

LineBacker – Lines up behind the Defensive linemen and in front of the Defensive backfield. The LineBackers are a Team's second line of Defense. Each Team has two outside LineBackers.

Nose Tackle – a Defensive Tackle who lines up directly across from the Center. Also known as the Nose Guard, the primary responsibilities of the Nose Tackle are to stop the run and occupy the Offensive lineman to keep them from blocking the LineBackers.

  It seems to me that it is MUCH more complicated to try to understand Defense than it is Offense! (But then again, I am a simple GRITS GirlBird, and unaccustomed to such strategizing. We are more frequently seen serving snacks and refreshments during FootBall Games. **TeeHee**) The drawings I have to support today’s information on the Defense eggsplain more of where Defensive Players can line up. The eggsecution of Defensive plays is much more involved than I could ever hope to delve into in this format. I suppose that means that the Defensive Players on the Teams in the Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl have a lot of improvising to look forward to during the Game!

It is my sincere desire that the information on both the Offensive and Defensive Squads has served to make your spectator participation in the Game of FootBall more enjoyable, and that it has been a help in preparing the Players for the Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl. It has been an honor and a privilege to research and present what I could find to give you more pleasure in The Game.

*secondary—the Defensive players who line up behind the LineBackers and wide on the corners of the field opposite the receivers and defend the pass. These defensive players, who are called Defensive Backs, are separated into Safeties, CornerBacks, and, occasionally, Nickel Backs (an eggstra Defensive Back who is used in some Defensive Formations).

**man-to-man [coverage]—pass coverage in which every potential Offensive Receiver is assigned to a particular Defender Each Defensive Player must stick to his Receiver like glue and make sure he doesn’t catch a pass thrown in his direction.

***rush the QuarterBack—use whatever moves the Player has to get a sack, or disrupt the throw.

  `Ü´ Greetings & A Happy Day After
Thanksgiving to you Mr RaneBeau! I do hope your Thanksgiving was one of contemplation and appreciation for all the blessings you share with your flockily, as well as loving time together to celebrate all of those blessings.

As I mentioned several days ago, my momma and daddy were blessed with not only the very first Holiday Celebration (or celebration of any event or holiday) with EVERYone in daddy’s family being present, but also a several day long visit with my Grandma beforehand, and a couple of days to come still with my Uncle.

As a result, I have not been able to visit as regularly as I otherwise would have. But parrotsonally, I did use the contemplations of the Holiday to count the many featheriendship blessings that I’ve had in the process of this Quest for the Bird of the Month Crown that I’ve been on this month, AND the love and support you’ve all shown me in that effort. And I eggstend my most heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you.

For today I thought I would lighten the spirit of the Campaign and share a funny story. We will, however, finish up with our FootBall information before the month is out.

This is a story that I “made up” about my frother Jake. The originally disguised parrot’s identity was changed to reveal Jake’s NON-innocence. **GiGGle**

BAD Jake <Ö)

Jake joined The K Kritter Korral as the first Blue-and-Gold Macaw after fister Rosalie made her Journey to The Rainbow Bridge. He had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary.

Every word out of his beak was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity. Momma tried and tried to change his attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything else she could think of to clean up his vocabulary.

Finally, Momma was fed up and she yelled at Jake <Ö). Jake <Ö), of course, yelled back. Momma shook him and he got angrier and even more rude. In desperation, Momma threw up her hands, grabbed Jake <Ö) and put him in the freezer.

For a few minutes Jake <Ö) squawked and kicked and screamed. (And Jake <Ö) screams LIKE A GIRL! **TeeHee**.) Then suddenly there was total quiet. Not a sound was heard for over a minute.

Fearing that she had hurt him, Momma quickly opened the door to the freezer. Jake <Ö) calmly stepped out onto Momma’s outstretched hand and said "I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I am sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior."

Momma was absolutely stunned at the change in Jake’s <Ö) attitude.

As she was about to ask Jake <Ö) what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, he spoke up, very softly, and asked … "May I ask what the turkey did?"

  Hello My Handsome Friend~~
I hope your day was just perfect!! Pretty quiet around here. Mom is going to cook the turkey tomorrow morning. She did not remember that since she was cooking it 3 days early she should have bought it 3 days earlier since the thing was still frozen on Monday!

Mom starts 8 days straight tomorrow night. It's a crazy time but it's like this every year. She doesn't usually get stuck with so many days in a row but the lady she works with wants next Monday off and doesn't have any vacation time left. She got scheduled for Friday so she will be doing the extra weekend ad. They are suppose to have a back up to handle the extra ads but the manager won't hire one. To them it is all about money. To mom it is all about the customers. Since mom's store sells groceries too they will be open until 4pm on Thanksgiving. They open up again at 5am on Friday. Ian is still working at Toys R Us and they are opening at 5pm on Thanksgiving. If people didn't go shopping the stores wouldn't open. Last year Toys R Us was really crowded so the Thanksgiving shopping will continue.

I hope you all enjoy your Thanksgiving!! Are all the boys going to be home? Dad is off somewhere and decided not to come home right now since mom and Ian have to work. He didn't make it for their 32nd anniversary too! I guess they will be going out to dinner whenever he gets home!!

Please give mom and the flock our love!!

Well, the pics I have seen are wonderful as always. I can't wait to see my cheer pic. You can toss it on my page if that's ok. I can't wait to see you in your ref uniform. I know you will look so handsome!
As for the snow, we got a break after morning today. But, the roads are ice including the main roads. Buffalo is also a lake-effect area. We should have a L-E club ... hehehehe! Yes, my mom loves Christmas music. She will play it until midnight on Christmas day. After that, dad will kill her.
I love your tossing of the sweatshirt! LOL! I love to toss things too ... is that a macaw thing?
This morning I woke to see the winter wonderland. Everything was white with lots of snow for dad to plow again ... hehehe. We got another 9 inches over night. Along with the cold, we will have daily snow starting on Thanksgiving morning. I have 2 new snow pics up for those who like it. I think I'll just go back to my perch for the day under the extra blankets.
YCM Huggies ... mom tried to catch your hugs!!!

In case you aren't on tomorrow ... wishing you, your family and flock a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

  Hi RaneBeau
We got a lot of new pics when Aunt Jane was here. She took a bunch of all of us, and sent mom the disc. She also included all the pics she took at Parrot Palooza! Mom was excited to get all of them. I will be happy to send them to you, would you also like pics of Peppino and Willie?
Mom had fun at the wildlife center yesterday, she did the RVS animals again, which means she fed the bats. She loves doing that, they think they are so fierce, baring their teeth at her! She also did the raccoons outside, as well as the raccoon and ground hog inside.
Today we are going to make cornbread for the stuffing. I hope we all get a sample. If mom has the ambition, she will bake the pies, but she would prefer to wait until tomorrow so they will be fresher. Mom's daughter ordered a fresh local turkey which she will pick up after work and drop here on her way home.
Mom does have an errand today: she needs a 6 foot lead for Daisy's class tonight. She got the mat, the treats are ready, the clicker is in her pocket, but she doesn't have a small 6' leash. The one she has is really thick, too big for that little dog. I only hope she is able to teach that dog some manners! Mom has done her homework all week, so maybe there's a chance this dog will be better by the end of class.
I hope you are all having a good day. Don't forget to come by the Lakers page today to celebrate Thanksgiving with our team! Happy Thanksgiving to you and the family, Rane! Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Season's Greetings, Everybirdie!, PEPPINO, please vote me BOTM for the new year, Divo & Falco, Merry Christmas!.

WOW! Three visits from my RB! This is so amazing :)
Are you making the football pics? I'm a cheerleader for the braves. What team are you on?
Oh yes, we wish we were in FL now!!! They said that we are getting 6 to 9 inches of snow on Tuesday. But, it's already started ... didn't mother nature watch the weather report?????? She got it wrong again!
We also have the no Christmas music, lights etc before December 1st. But, I think your song ... Let It Snow must be the theme for N. MI!!!!!
Sorry every birdie ... couldn't get on the BC yesterday. We had 42 degrees with rain again today. It was nice to watch snow melt. We lost almost 1/3 of our snow. But, on Tuesday we will be back to 32 degrees with snow. I guess I have to put that extra blanket back on the perch tonight. How about sharing some hot chocolate with me? OOPS ... it's snowing already tonight!

  `Ü´ Greetings & A Lovely Monday to You
Mr RaneBeau!

I do hope that your Saturday and Sunday were full of fun and productivity. I know in my case I had to relinquish Momma’s eggsclusive attention and assistance on my Campaign to be your December Bird of the Month to more pressing parrontal matters around our K Kritter Korral. (The portion of Sunday during which Momma was available to bring me to your page for a visit, the BirdChannel was not cooperating. You might say that their GPS was out of order! **TeeHee**)

You see, Momma and Daddy were informed that they could eggspect a visit from my Grandma from Idaho from later today, to last thru Thursday morning when they all gather at Daddy’s youngest brother’s home about an hour away from us for the first Family Celebration with everyone present since Momma and Daddy have known each other. Grandma was eager to be able to spend time here with Momma and Daddy, and all of us fids of course, before joining the rest of the family for a concurrent Celebration of Thanksgiving and her BirthDay on Thursday! Then she will remain with my Uncle and his family until she returns to her home in Idaho later in the week, while my other Uncle comes to pay us a visit over the long weekend.

So, all of this is to say that my visits may be a bit sporadic from now thru the end of the month, due to Grandma’s visit, the Holiday weekend with my Uncle visiting, and the upcoming Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl Game. I do apologize in advance for any visits I shall have to forego. But rest assured that I shall continue to do my utmost to bring you the maximum amount of FootBall information in the time we have left together.

And on that note, let us get straight to the information I’ve promised you next about the Offensive Squad on a FootBall team …

Let’s begin our eggsamination of the individual Positions on the Offensive Squad.

QuarterBack – The Player who usually receives the ball from the Center at the start of each play. He informs his TeamMates in the huddle of the play that will be run and then, after the Center snaps* the ball to him, either hands the ball to a Running Back or throws to a Receiver.

Center – The Player who hikes (or snaps) the ball to the QuarterBack at the start of each play. The term comes from the fact that this Player is flanked on either side by a Guard and a Tackle; he’s the “MiddleMan” (or Center) in a contingent of five Offensive LineMen or Blockers. He handles the ball on every play and also snaps the ball to the Punter and Holder.

Guard – There are two Guards on every play, and they line up on either side of the Offensive Center. The Guards protect the QuarterBack from an Inside Rusher; they block Defenders immediately across from them and also swing out, or pull**, and run toward either end [of the line] to block any Defender when the ball carrier runs wide°.

Come visit me, `Ü´ Queen Ruby Francesca Begonia~Merci Mes Amies.

11/24/2014 01:53.58 PM Report This Comment  
  Tackle – Both Offensive and Defensive, on Offense they are Outside Blockers on the line of scrimmage°°.

Tight End – Serves as a BIG Receiver [Oh MY!] and also a Blocker. Unlike a Wide Receiver, this Player generally lines up beside the Offensive Tackle either to the right or to the left of the QuarterBack. (Also “Strong Side+”)

Wide Receiver – The Player who uses his speed and quickness to elude Defenders and catch the FootBall, but who isn’t primarily a Blocker. Wide Receivers are also known as “pass catchers” [but I-I-I would parrotsonally NOT disparage one so!]. Also called a WideOut.

Running Back – A Player who runs with the FootBall. Running Backs are also referred to as TailBacks and HalfBacks, depending on their exact responsibilities and alignment.

FullBack – A Player who lines up in the Offensive backfield++ and generally is responsible for blocking for the Running Back and pass-blocking to protect the QuarterBack. FullBacks also serve as short-yardage runners.

I would also like to call your attention to a display of several of the basic Offensive Formations which appear in the Gallery at the bottom of my page. (They also appear in my Profile Picture at the top of my page; but they are much clearer and contain eggsplanatory text in the photos in the Gallery.) I hope these are of use to you in recognizing some of what happens on the actual field of play the next time you watch a FootBall Game.

I am also including several definitions of terms used in the above Position Descriptions at the end of this note.

Have a Greyt Day! Perhaps enjoy watching The Jets play The Bills at 7:00 pm on CBS, or The Ravens play at The Saints at 8:30 pm on ESPN. Both times are EST. Remember, it is virtually illegal to watch a FootBall Game quietly. So do what we Avians are most well-known for doing … **S*Q*U*A*W*K** . **I*T** . **U*P** ! ! !

*snap—the action in which the ball in handed or hiked by the Center to the QuarterBack, to the Holder on a kick attempt, or to the Punter.
**pull—when a player leaves one area of the field, generally moving back and then over, to block in an area other than his normal position.
°run wide
°°line of scrimmage—the imaginary boundary between the two teams prior to the snap of the ball. The Offense’s and Defense’s scrimmage lines are defined by the tip of the ball closest to them and stretch from sideline to sideline. The Defensive Team usually lines up less than a yard away from where the ball is placed.
+strong side—the side of the Offensive formation where the Tight End aligns. With a right-handed QuarterBack, the strong side is usually to his right side.
++backfield—the group of Offensive Players (the Running Backs and QuarterBack) who line up behind the line of scrimmage (vs the Offensive LineMen and/or Receivers who line up at the line of scrimmage).

You handsome boy! It's great to see you! I stopped by Ruby's page briefly to vote, but mom was exhausted, so we didn't blog or anything.
Sorry we weren't able to blog yesterday. Mom was at the Galleria, a shopping area about 20 miles (through city traffic) away. The event started at 12 and ran to 4, but the folks from the wildlife center wanted all the volunteers there at 11 to help set things up, and of course, they stayed at the end to put it all back in the vans. Mom and her partner had Quincy and Dan Quail; Jake the snake was at another table, and Ray the crow was in still another location on the second level. On the third level there were programs every hour featuring Murphy the skunk and Martha the Great Horned Owl. There were also refreshments and kid crafts, as well as face painting on that level. It was a fairly large event to organize and pull off so far from the center, but a local auto company outfitted a van and donated it for a year. It has cages in it, and is comfortable for a lot of animals, and has cats, dogs, and wild animals painted on the sides so we can now transport critters to events and hopefully make more cash.
Anyway, mom was pretty tired when she got home so she spent the evening cuddling with us and crocheting things for Christmas.
Today mom has 2 public tours in Dinosaur hall, but she'll be home making out the shopping list for Thanksgiving and being with us afterwards. We were going to try a Hubbard squash pie this year, but mom left the squash on the back deck, and it froze, so it's not good for anything except squirrels and deer now. Mom tossed it and the pumpkins over the hill for the animals this morning.
Our weather, after freezing rain yesterday morning (during the drive, of course), has turned warmer. It was in the high 40s when we got up today, and it's supposed to carry through until tomorrow, and be nice once again. It's probably our last hurrah, though. We can expect wintery conditions to get here again on Wednesday. Oh, and the furnace is finally up and running reliably after the guy replaced some pressure switches on Friday. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of attention and love. Hugs, Falco
PS: Happy Thanksgiving, if we don't see you!

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Season's Greetings, Everybirdie!, PEPPINO, please vote me BOTM for the new year, Divo & Falco, Merry Christmas!.

  Hi RaneBeau
Awww thanks ... it's working!
I can't believe I'm hearing from you ... I'm so thrilled!
We enjoyed 38 degrees and lots of melting snow today. It was nice to have rain and fog for a change. Maybe it will get as high as 41 with rain on Sunday! I think I can take one blanket off the perch tonight!

Come visit me, Chyna ~ It's winter! & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  Hi ya RaneBeau~
How is my handsome Macaw friend doing? I hear that you guys got snow! I think maybe everyone says it's early but I bet it has happened before. We tend to forget what the previous winters looked like.
We are going to have a mild one but that will mean lots of wind! The last time we had this El Nino thing there was a huge wind storm in February and we were without power for nearly a week. Guess it's something to look forward to!hehehehehe We are always prepared so nothing to worry about.
Mom and Ian are both working on Thanksgiving day so Thanksgiving will be Monday or Tuesday here. Dad is not coming home since they both have to work. Mom tells him that they can celebrate on any day but I guess he wants to save time off for Christmas. You know mom and Ian will be working then too!
I hope everything is just perfect with the McFlock and family! Please give mom and the flock our love!!
Super Zon Size hug from me to you!

  Hi RaneBeau
Who is this???????
LOL!!! I'm used to hearing from you once a month now! This is so good to talk with you again so soon!!!
Ah yes, I have a ruby necklace ready for the lucky hat winner lady. It's red for the run for the roses. I think she will like it.
Well, half of the derby glasses have arrived. Mom thinks they are pretty colors. She got a discount on them so why not get them early? I would love to have you go shopping with me ... we can do lunch after.
If your mom takes a pic of our house and makes it look like summer .... will it change ... PLEASE?
Yes, we will get a good melt this weekend but first, the freezing rain. Like we don't have enough ice on the roads and driveways!!!
The snow stopped falling around noon! But now, we have freezing rain all night thru late morning. Summer, where are you????? Chyna gets some more hot chocolate and puts on her footie pj's.

  Hi RaneBeau
Oh you just don't know how good it is to see you again!Mom has been so frantic over Mario these past two weeks or so and both he and I went to Nana's with Mom today,Mom made sure the car was warmed nicely and then she put me in a carrier and Mario in his and then she wrapped both carriers in a warm blanket and we rode that way in the car to Nana's house,I stayed in the sunroom with Trixie II and Mario went into Bella's room with her!He complained all the way,he's been so demanding and wanting Mom to stay with him non stop,Mom can't leave the room without him screaming at the top of his tiel lungs for her to come back for him!Whenever she went into his cage at Nana's to check on him and to change his paper he'd crawl out onto her arm and refused to go back into the cage!He loves to hang out with me and Mom gave Mario one of my soft flat perches to sit on and he just loves it!Mom has been up all night for the last two weeks or so running downstairs to check on him just to make sure that he doesn't need her,me she takes to bed with her but Mario has never done that before and Mom didn't want to take any chances with him!
Please give Kirby a big warm GCC hug from me too,it sure sounds like he's having so much fun with Paige and Felix!Are they sunnies or are they GCC's?They sound just like Kallie,he's got to have his boxes and Mom is constantly begging off boxes from everyone for him!I agree with you on the mess,you should see that big playgym with all the shredded boxes,you would never know that it was a box he had in there!When Mario and Peepers moved out to be with skin sis Mom cleaned our room really good and we didn't have anymore of that thick dust in back of our triple decker cage or inside it,now that Mario is back home with us,the dust is back and I sure can hear you on all that grey dust you are having to deal with and its not fun,it can really get into your nares and make you sneeze and cough!Mom and I loved how Kelly would keep calling Kelly Kell Kell Kelly!Does she still talk like that?Bella does the same thing,she always is saying something new!Hows Riza doing these days?Give her my love and a warm hug and GCC kisses too!I just miss all of you something big time!
I had two big bowls of bean mix at Nana's today and then she made me a fruit salad with pineapple,apples,oranges and pomegranates!Nana cut it all up small for me too so I could eat it!Was I ever full by the time Mom brought us all home!
Mario just loves hanging out with me and he loves to preen me and wants me to preen him back,he also loves to serenade me in song!Silly tiel that he is!My Mom wants to tell you she is so happy to be looking out for me and she wants to thank you for always being there for me like you always have been all these years!You always bring me the sunshine whenever I get to see you visiting me!I have sooo missed you more than you can know!But we all know how busy our Mom's can be and how things can change in an instant!

  `Ü´ Greetings & OH! MY!! GOODness!!!
Mr RaneBeau!

Does anybirdy ELSE realize how much there is to KNOW about FootBall??? Why … I had no idea how much I DIDN’T KNOW until Momma consented to help me learn for the sake of my Quest for the Bird of the Month Crown, and sharing her passion for The Game so that I might understand all of the HoopLa that I hear coming from the area of the television every time she watches a Game!!


Well! As promised, we shall begin our investigation into the individual responsibilities of the Players in each Position today. But I fear it will never fit into one day’s note. So we shall simply spread it out over several days so that you, My Featheriend, can take it all in and not fall asleep before you learn what you need to know!

You may recall from our earlier information that the NFL limits active, uniformed Players to 45 per Team on Game Day.

Each FootBall Team has 11 Players per side: 11 on Offense and 11 on Defense. Teams are allowed to play with fewer than 11 Players (and for the LIFE of me I can’t IMAGINE WHY they would WANT to???), but they are penalized for having more than 11 Players on the Field during play. Rarely, a few eggsceptionally talented Players may play both Offense and Defense in the NFL. (And I do believe that we have a few of those eggsceptionally talented Birdie FootBall Players on the Indians and Pilgrims Team Rosters!)

A typical NFL Game Day roster includes three QuarterBacks, a Punter, a PlaceKicker, a Kick Return Specialist, eight Offensive LineMen, four Running Backs, five Receivers, two Tight Ends, seven Defensive LineMen, seven LineBackers, and six Defensive Backs. (The NONSTARTING Players – that is, those who are not among the 22 or so Players who are listed in the Starting LineUp – are considered Reserves, and many of them are Specialists.)

In the NFL, an additional Player can be in uniform, but he must be a QuarterBack and enter the Game only after the other QuarterBacks have been removed from the Game because of injury. When this eggstra QuarterBack, or 46th Player, enters the Game, the other QuarterBacks are deemed ineligible and cannot return to that Game even if they are healthy.

With our very own 3rd Annual Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl Game approaching in a little over a week, and Players needing and wanting to know how to practice to yield the most effective results, when we next meet I shall delve into the individual Positions on the Offensive Squad.

Before I depart this evening, though, I do wish to thank you, once again, for your wonderful continuing support of my efforts to be your Christmas Queen on BirdChannel. I am truly beginning to feel the eggscitement of the prospect of having my dream realized. You and your featheriendship are appreciated more than you know.

A bientot, mon ami,
[See you soon, My Featheriend]

  `Ü´ Greetings & Good Evening
Mr RaneBeau!

I am flitting by this evening for a very short visit to share with you a little bit of the great fun I had this Tuesday past presenting a program with Momma for The Sylvan Seniors at Mt Sylvan United Methodist Church in Durham, where Momma and Daddy attend. (They do not attend the s-e-n-i-o-r-s functions. **TeeHee** They attend CHURCH there.)

Momma and I were given half an hour to address the group, to share what Life with a Parrot is like, for most of them had never had an eggsperience with a companion parrot; particularly not one of my size! When we have a program like that, Momma usually starts out by eggsplaining how she and Daddy came to start a flock like the K Kritter Korral, and how it grew; and then, through sheer human curiosity, we have a wonderful conversation about what all is entailed in living with a parrot (or parrotS). Of course, I-I-I contribute greatly to program content; this time including a stroll back and forth in front of the front row at one point, for emphasis of the subject matter at hand. (At just the right point in time I climbed down off my play stand and let Momma know I had something to add. **GRiN**)

When our time for the presentation was over, the group had some lunch together. I was given my fill of some lovely white grapes by a number of brave ladies and gentlemen, and then several of them wanted to have their picture taken with me. In my Gallery at the bottom of my page you can see just a couple of the lovely folks I visited with parrotsonally.

I shall return with those promised eggsplanations of the positions of the players on a FootBall team when next I visit.

Toutes alors, mon ami,
[Until then, My Featheriend]

  Hi RaneBeau
If you take off the snowshoes you will sink down in the snow. It would be better to wait until you are in the driveway. Oh yes, dad will give you a ride up the driveway on the Kubota. He might even let you aim that snow blower ... hehehehe. I like that part.
Oh yes please, keep those stray snowflakes. We are getting more on Thursday and don't need any more. Besides, your mom loves the stuff!
Well, the first box of KY Derby stuff arrived today. Mom is already ordering party things. As for the Milonga Derby, we are giving a necklace for the lady who wins, the man will still win a watch.
Today was a light snow day for us, dad only plowed once. Thursday, we will get another foot of snow with ice, then maybe a break for a while. They say the rain will be here on the weekend.
Hope every bird is staying warm. Chyna lifts her hot chocolate mug ... CHEERS.

  Hi RaneBeau
Just to keep you updated .......

We made it thru the worst and didn't lose power. Looks like two more days of heavy snow. It was so windy last night that it howled all night long. Today was full of whiteouts and strong winds again. The roads are very icy. I watched my dad plow snow most of the day. Then he was using the roof rake, I didn't like that part when the snow came down and made a big thud! Boy, is it ever COLD up here! I have my footie pj's on and a big fluffy robe. Mom & I have been hitting the hot chocolate. Come over if you want to go sledding or use the snow shoes.

Come visit me, Chyna ~ It's winter! & Bailey ♥ RIP.
