  Hi My Loving Sweet Sugar
Oh don't you just love pancakes!Mom bought some blueberry ones and Dixie and Candida get to share them with my dad!They're soo good!I can only imagine how the aroma filled the kitchen and brought everyone out to dine together with you and Aunt Eileen!Mom and I think its awesome that Ian cooks and those potatoes sound so good with salad.And oh does my Mom just love chili and I bet Aunt Eileen makes the best chili ever!Its good that Jennifer didn't have to be in work til noon so Aunt Eileen could sleep in for a change!My Mom agrees with what Aunt Eileen says about people driving as if everyone else out there doesn't know how to drive!She's so right because they don't know!McKenzie sounds like an all around sweet dog who just loves everyone and everything.Leash training is so hard when you've got so many distractions coming and going!You would think McKenzie would be afraid of those horses as they are so big!Mom sent you and Aunt Eileen a copy of our Pet Gazzette and it has a video of an amazon singing with her Spanish master sitting on the edge of his guitar,she reminded us of you and we just love her voice and can only imagine how sweet your voice is too and what a greyt singer you are too!
Mom had a quiet day here as it rained since early morning and will be raining here all week long.Mom got the vacuuming done and some other chores and then late tonight Anthony called and needed a ride from the car repair shop which is at the end of Nana's street in Mashpee to his shop in Sagamore to get his work truck so he could get to work tomorrow.He dropped his car off tonight after work so they could work on it first thing tomorrow,he has no brake lights and that makes Mom nervous.
I love you more than you will ever know and you bring me the sunshine and make my world a happy place to be!Angel wing hugs and soft Angel kisses on the wings of a summer breeze!I love you always and forever,more than words can be written on paper!Here I come for our story and our snuggle time together!It will never be my last Angel wing hugs for you,they will be there always!Loving you always and forever,Gabbie

  Hi Sugar!!
Mom hasn't saw any hummingbirds for a few days, and she is wondering if they have left. Two other birds showed up, and we think that they were migrating through and just stopped for rest and a meal. They were gone the next day, and so was our juvenile female. Mom thinks that she left and headed South with her new friends. :-) We are still filling the hummingbird feeders, just in case there are still a few stragglers lurking about. Mom watched the end of the presidential debate last night, and she doesn't know who the "winner" was, but she knows who the losers are....and that's the American people!! Mom doesn't think that either candidate is a good choice for president, and our Nation's future is in for more trouble. We have lots of rain in our forecast, but dad managed to get the pool closed today. He has a few more things to do tomorrow before the job is completed. Mom has work tomorrow, and it looks like it is going to be a slow day. Mom and dad did some birding this weekend and Mom saw a bird that she never saw before, and it's called a Nashville Warbler. She even got some great pictures of it!! I hope that all is well with you my friend. Thanks for flying in to visit with me.

I hope your day is going well!! Mckenzie is still young yet so she will slowly slow down and that will help too.
Another day with BC..think we are going to make it all week?
The other day mom turned my heater on in my condo cause my toes have been cold in the morning. I keep feeding the heater and mom says its not hungry and she cleans it off all the time. Mom went to the fruit stand and got some goodies there and also the grocery store so mom will be cooking all week and I will be eating LOL. I did get a sunbath this afternoon when the sun was out nice and bright!! I can caw like the crows do now and was making noise for them today.

  Hey Sugar,
Beach Day 1

A long awaited rest and relaxation is about to begin. . . . . . . . .
Well it’s a Tooseday and everyone is off to a good start. Kaji and Chipper found a beach ball and are playing air volley ball. Chipper bounces it to Kaji and he tries to bump it with his beak but instead punctures it. Now it is stuck on his beak, all deflated. He had forgotten that he sharpened his beak on the lava rock cave when they were all stuck. Chipper tries to pull it off his beak but its stuck in there good. Sugar sees what happened and comes running to help Chipper. Okay on three. One, two three pull!!! Boing!! Chipper and Sugar have fallen back from the weight of their pull. Finally Kaji says! Okay no more air volleyball for me!! He stomps away and gets his boogie board, I’m gonna join Pookie, Dixie, and Cookie in the water. Sugar and Chipper look at each other and start laughing… hehehehehehhe heheheheh hehehehehehe

The sleepy huts, birdie hammocks and tree perches in front of the bonfire pit are all ready for the birdies to be comfy and cozy for the first nights R & R stay.
No spooky stories tonight as I want every birdie to have a nice and restful nights sleep.

It’s lunch time and everyone catches the whiff of the bread baking on the Bar-B-Q fire pit and it smells heavenly. Everyone’s nares lifts their head up to see the direction the smell is coming from. Now everyone’s tummy is letting them know it’s time to eat something. Mom has made samiches with the freshly baked bread. Pookie and Dixie paddle back in as soon as they smell the bread baking. It’s not ready yet, wait for everyone okay? Okay then Pookie and Dixie wave to everyone to come in so that they all can start eating. There is pickles, and olives on the side. Fresh lettuce, tomato, cucumbers, sprouts and cheese for the samiches. Pookie and Dixie make a double decker submarine samich that looks bigger than them. Their eyeballs is bigger than their tummy! Pearl, Cori, Gus, Hulk, BooBoo and the rest of the gang come running up the beach when they smell the food. Our tummies were right! It’s time to eat! There’s chips and dip and veggies to choose from so help yourself. Tweetie-kins is still hanging on to Silver like an Opihi suction cup. I guess I’ll feed you when I get my plate, huh okay?

The bad budgies are still playing on the beach making a moat pool in the sand. They are laughing as they want to catch some birdie not paying attention. So they cover the pool with light leaves and leave a piece of donut on top. Waiting like a lion hunting its prey.

Stay tuned for the next episode of As The BC Turns, the Saga continues.

Here’s a vote for you my sweet friends.

Love & Hugs,

Pookie and friends

  pm last night and got Nana's lights back,he found some switch on the circuit breaker box that got the lights to work again.Mom and Nana don't understand which switch it was,Mom even went on line to see if they would tell her there but they never said anything about a reset button.Mom even has the Home Depot Home Improvement 1-2-3 book for how too's on how to fix things or do things in your house and it said nothing about how to reset the circuit breaker box.Nana was glad that Brother In Law came over and got it working again.It saved Nana quite a bit of money if she had to call the electrician.Dixie tells Sugar that he wishes it would be warmer here and he thinks that's so awesome that Aunt Eileen got to open the patio doors and window to let the nice breeze come through.And how wonderful that the ceiling fan works great and helps make things cooler!Dixie tells Sugar that he misses the open windows with the fresh air coming through.And the warm sunshine so he can be outside and sit in the sun on the deck!Dixie tells Sugar that its raining at his house now and its supposed to rain for the rest of the week.Its so dark and gloomy.Dixie tells Sugar that his Mom still hasn't done any laundry now in three weeks.She's hoping to get it done on Sunday if the weather is good so she can hang it out on the line to dry.Mom just hates having to use the dryer,she loves the way the clothes come out and smell when they're line dried.But she'll have to use the dryer soon if we keep getting this cold weather.Dixie just loves pancakes too and he wonders if Sugar had the blueberry ones!Mom and Nana have gotten the Dawn dish soap for 99 cents at Walgreen's too!Dixie tells Sugar that his Mom does the same thing,runs out of dish soap and then has to wait to get some.His Mom has a soap dispenser built into the sink where she can empty the whole bottle of dish soap and then just pump it out when she needs it so she doesn't have the bottle on the counter,so its easy to forget if she runs out!Dixie thinks that his Mom will be going out to run errands tomorrow with Nana but he's not sure where they'll be going yet.Nana still has to try calling the dr. again,she tried yesterday but couldn't understand them and they hung up on her or something.Dixie is so hoping that he gets to go for a car ride to visit Bella and Trixie too!
Before long the friends are yawning and stretching their wings and know its time for bed!Dixie gives Sugar a kiss good night and cuddles under her wing.They say their prayers and add a special prayer just for Nana.They add prayers for the whole family!They add special prayers for Aunt Eileen and Sugar's whole family also,they all mean the world to him and his family!If only Aunt Eileen and Sugar knew just how special they are and how much we all love them here!Dixie has his own special prayers for Sugar!He thanks the Lord each and everyday for having Sugar as his warm wonderful loving friend and he can't ever imagine his life without her in it!He knows

This story is called"Berenstain Bears Back to School".The bear family is sitting around talking about all their favorite things.They talk about their favorite colors,favorite foods,favorite movies and TV shows.They start to talk about their favorite seasons and Papa says his favorite season is winter and he loves to walk on the crunchy snow and loves the way the snow looks when it covers the forest.The cubs say that summer is their favorite season,they love to go swimming and camping and laying out at night and look at the stars twinkling in the sky.The cubs ask Mama what her favorite season is and they think it would be spring.Mama tells them that spring is lovely with all the sunshine and flowers but her favorite season is autumn.The cubs tell her that it's because all the leaves change color and are so beautiful!Mama shakes her head and tells them that its her favorite season because its back to school time!The cubs begin to think about school and they realize that back to school is very soon.Mama thinks about being able to have a second cup of coffee and read the paper and she thinks about being able to go shopping at the Mall!The cubs start to worry about school!What if they have a mean teacher?What if brother doesn't make the soccer team?What if the work is too hard?What if brother gets sent to the principals office?Mama and Papa tell them both not to worry because everything is going to be wonderful!The first day of school comes and the cubs are still worried when they get on the school bus!Mama sits down to have her second cup of coffee but the paper is all about back to school so she sits down to watch her soap opera but thinks its pretty dumb and she thinks about going to the Mall but she doesn't feel like it!The kids have a greyt day and Sister has a wonderful teacher and brother makes the soccer team and they both love all their subjects and brother gets sent to the principals office because he's delivering messages for the principal!When they get home Mama gives them both a big hug and a kiss!She's made some chocolate chip cookies for them!She wants to hear all about their day and she tells them that she missed them so very much!The kids tell her that they really appreciate the cookies and maybe Autumn is a pretty good season!
The friends really love the cookies and the juice.They all start to giggle when Mama decides that being home alone isn't so great!It was sweet that she missed the cubs so much!

  Ahoy, Sugar,
Captain Barnacles on deck throwing feathers.
I was kind enough to wait till Mom's birthday passed to start throwing feathers on the window sill. This molting is annoying to me and Mom. I guess the season change means new fancy feathers.
Mom had a good birthday...she spent the day working, subbing as the gym teacher. All the kids sang to her and she played all day. The day ended with one of her favorite meals, chili in the crock pot, and cupcakes. There were red velvet and cannoli cream cupcakes from our neighbor. Thank you for the good wishes for her. Dad will have ravioli and meatballs for his birthday dinner. If Mom doesn't work she will make him a lemon meringue pie. Bo and I get an extra treat on someone's birdday.
I hope your Mom enjoys her time off. Get some good play time with her.

  Hi Sugar !
Tooosday already ! We've got rain ALL week long ! Not all day, but part of every single day ! YUCK ! It's already wrecking havoc on mom's sinuses . . . she ended up taking something and heading to bed early - she's still hoping it's not that early fall cold she gets every year.

Mom's long day today so I'll be working on my new toys - and maybe catching a nap till she and daddy get home. If she still feels yucky, she'll send daddy out for take-out tonight. No cooking (or cleaning up !).

Slow news day today - but you know what they say - no news is good news ! ! love you and mom sends thank you's for the good wishes ! Enjoy mom's vacation ! love Cookie

  Hey Sugar,
Well, it’s a Monday and happy day!! We are all safe and sound and I think it’s time we all had some fun in our life since we came close to a very uneggspected turn of events.
In our birdie lifetime it’s too short to be stuck in a cave, even with an earthquake going on, it was sure scary and so so nerve racking, feather shaking, pin feathery irritating!
But this week, we are all going to celebrate life. This is how good and better it’s gonna get. We are staying at the beach for a whole week long. The parronts are setting up the tents, sleepy huts, birdie hammocks, wood perches by the bonfire pit, and all around the best time for all us. Being that we all went through some hard times being stuck, we are gonna be free to do what we want to. So, who’s with me??? Everyone shouts, me!!! Yay!! Yay!!! Yay!!!!

Okay let’s do this!!! Everyone chips in and helps pack the truck and trailer as we have a lot to move. Camping out at the beach for a week, that’s a lot of stuff and food too.
Mom is gonna be baking fresh break on the Bar-B-Q pit, that should be interesting. Dixie says I can just imagine how warm and soft the bread will be. I bet we can all smell it too from way on the beach to down to the water. The smell of food will be bringing us in to eat, that’s for sure! Pookie says yeah I hear ya buddy!

The truck and trailer is loaded and every birdie hops in with their sand tools, floaties, boogie boards, surfboards and tire tubes. Don’t forget the sun screen yells mom. You know how you all get!! We don’t want any red birds, unless they are already red. Ehehhehehehehehhe The cooler is full of ice with every kind of juice and water bottles galore. Mom also packed the fresh fruit which she will cut up before serving so that it doesn’t turn color. Fresh is the motif this weekend and what a ball we will all have. Dad has kabobs galore too and I’m sure he has something special for BooBoo and Officer Sequoia too. Bug kabobs. BooBoo is licking her beaky just the thought of teriyaki bugs on a stick. Hmmmmm

Stay tuned for the next episode of As The BC Turns, the Saga continues.

Here’s a vote for you my sweet friends.

Love & Hugs,

Pookie and friends

Yes imagine your mom is tired and sure needs those 4 days off so she can get caught up on her sleep and chores too!! The pain is less but still there and mom cant wait till its all gone too!!
Another Monday with BC..think we are going to make it all week?
Today started out a little cloudy but got sunny as the day wore on. Mom washed clothes and hung some out. She washed my condo cover and also the wrap around cloth so my flung foods cant go too far. They sure smell good being hung outside in the sunshine.
I took my own bath in my water bowl while mom ran the sweeper and then later I went out for a nice sunbath too. Mom said it might be the last one for a while cause a cold front is coming through. It did rain here late this afternoon and it poured hard too. Now its suppose to get cooler.

  Heya, Miss Sugar!
Oh my! Someone turned off the heat outside! We got to 65 today, with a very strong wind and no humidity or dew points. Needless to say, Mom is nice and warm, so I have been hanging out on her shoulder as often as I can. Tomorrow will be cooler yet, so that ought to be interesting. Mom has her haircut in the morning, and then has to pick up prescriptions--and come home and drop that off. She will go see Kim in the hospital tomorrow too, as Kim said she was exhausted from all the activity going on today. Typical Monday where all the staff is on and seeing people admitted over the weekend.

Mom had to fiddle with the puter today, and then balance her checkbook...another task she hates to do, but one of those necessary evils. Good thing too, cuz she forgot to write down one expense--and now that she found it, she balances. She hates it when she can't figure out what was missing. I did not help her out, either, but went after her notebook trying to bite it. She was not thrilled, so I got to look outside while she finished up.

Hope you had a lovely day! Wing hugs coming atcha!

Your buddy,
Kaji

  hi Sugar and aunt Eileen
Happy Monday :) Even though it won't be very happy for me . . . back to school for the folks :( At least I have new toys to play with while they're gone - and maybe a nice nap. I had a really fun day yesterday - presents, popcorn and a movie in the afternoon, corn on the cob with my supper, and then a strawberry ! Best of all though, was everyone staying home and playing with me ! Mom did run to Wallyworld for batteries since the tv remote died, but that was it -

Now it's cold ! It was our first extra blanket night this fall - down into the high 30's - and only reaching 70 any day this week. Some areas not too far north of us had frost advisories ! No wonder mom is waking up with a scratchy throat !

You and mom enjoy your mini-vacation together ! love Cookie

  Hi My Loving Sweet Sugar
We are praying that poor Aunt Eileen will be able to get a good nights sleep and we are all so relieved that she doesn't have to go to work and maybe can sleep late in the morning,hopefully she won't have to take anyone to work and its so good that Ian is off and can help with McKenzie,how tiring it must be to have to keep doing the bedding all the time,McKenzie and Merlin need to give her a break from all that laundry and making up the bed.
This morning was a bright sunny but freezing morning here with the highs for the day of 62 the lows of 46.Right now its a freezing 54 degrees with the winds blowing.Last night it got down to the low 40's.After Mom got dad off to work,she felt the house was so cold she caved and put the heat box on for us and that felt so good warming up our room nicely.Mom is waiting to put the other heat box on in the TV room until she can't stand it anymore.It feels like we have a/c on here full blast its so cold!Mom got us up when our room was warm enough and cleaned our cages and brought us our bean mix,and then swept the room.Then she went out and made dad his sandwiches for the week.She has to do laundry but she will wait for a day that's not so cold and windy,she's hoping to get at least one more time to hang the clothes out on the line before she has to use the dryer.Mom is going to get the hamburgers ready for the grill this afternoon as both sibs want a BBQ and this may be the last one we will have for the season,Mom will be out there in the cold and wind grilling,but she can keep warm by standing close to the grill with her hoodie on!Unfortunately we won't be going outside to join them this time again,we never got outside yesterday because it was so cold,it looks like our decking days are over and dining out days are gone now.Mom will try and vacuum before Shiloh and Anthony get here and then she'll be busy grilling and cleaning up until tonight when she will be able to snuggle with us.
UPDATE: Mom had the BBQ and both Shiloh and Anthony came over,Anthony came first and stayed an hour then he had to go back to work but he was back promptly about an hour later to join everyone for the bbq.Mom was grilling when he pulled into the driveway and Shiloh came before that with Peepers and Celine.It was way too cold and windy for any of us to be out there so we had to stay inside.While they were outside enjoying their burgers and hot dogs,(Mom made thin sliced turkey cutlets on the grill and she had that)a hummingbird came by and landed on the wires above their head.And a new kind of bird showed up at our feeder,Mom looked in the bird book and it looks like some kind of towee. It never came up to the feeder only ate from the ground with all the other starlings and grackles.Mom kept warm by the grill and then they decided to go inside and we got to come out and play on the dining room table and get our snacks there.It took Dixie all day to eat most of his bean mix and butternut squash.We all got an animal cracker for a sn

Thank Aunt Rose for the fabulous supper and they appreciate the way she pampers them everyday!They grab the cupcakes for dessert and juice boxes to drink and then waddle off to the play tent and get comfortable.As they nibble on their cupcakes and sip their juice Sugar begins reading the story she brought tonight!
This story is called "Down on The Farm".It's a poem with great pictures!
Sun comes up,Kids wake up,down on the farm.
Roosters crow cock-a-doodle-doo,down on the farm.
Crows peck at straw,Caw,Caw,Caw,down on the farm.
Horses say,Nay Nay Nay,down on the farm.
Cows will chew,Moo,Moo,Moo,down on the farm.
Time for lunch,crunch,crunch,crunch,down on the farm.
Ducks come back,Quack,Quack,Quack,down on the farm.
Geese kerplonk,Honk,Honk,Honk,down on the farm.
Turkeys squabbel,gobble,gobble,gobble,down on the farm.
Dogs on a roof,Woof,Woof,Woof,down on the farm.
Pigs snout point,oink,oink,oink,down on the farm.
Goats repeat,bleat,bleat,bleat,down on the farm.
Sheeps graze far,baa,baa,baa,down on the farm.
Chicks won't sleep,peep,peep,peep,down on the farm.
Cats pow wow,meow,meow,meow,down on the farm.
Sun goes down,SHH!quiet town,down on the farm.
Dixie,Candida and Sugar love the cupcakes and the juice and they all agree the poem is awesome and just love the pictures.Dixie tells Sugar that they have the dogs on the roof because it rhymes with woof and that makes Sugar giggle!Candida gives Sugar and Dixie a hug goodnight and head off to her night cage.Sugar and Dixie waddle over to the platform.Sugar props Dixie's legs up on the Hello Kitty Pillow and begins massaging his legs.Dixie feels so bad for Aunt Eileen not being able to get any sleep,it so does drain on your energy when you try and get things done.No wonder poor Aunt Eileen is so tired,she finished up all those ads and got them done,Mom is so hoping that she doesn't have to go back and face more work when she gets back!Dixie thinks its so awesome that Sugar got to talk to her dad today and it has to be so hard to not be able to talk to him for a week.I'll bet he just can't wait to come home to be with you,that sounds like a long drive from Texas!Dixie is so praying that he gets here by Wednesday.Dixie thinks its wonderful that Ian has the week off also and he wishes that Aunt Eileen could take a much longer vacation as she sure can use it and deserves it for sure!Dixie thinks its just wonderful that Sugar will be able to spend more time with Aunt Eileen now,that really means so much!
Before long the friends are yawning and stretching their wings and know its time for bed!Dixie gives Sugar a kiss good night and cuddles under her wing.They say their prayers and add a special prayer just for Nana.They add prayers for the whole family!They add special prayers for Aunt Eileen and Sugar's whole family also,they all mean the world to him and his family!If only Aunt Eileen and Sugar knew just how special they are and how much we all love them here!Dixie has his own specia

Mom says the good thing about just putting off the chores until later is that they are still there the next day.
We heard that Russell hurt his knee hope not to bad and he will be able to play next week. Mom was glad the Packers were able to win today now they already have their bye werk coming up seems way to early. Have a good night my friend.

Gotta say that it was a very overcast day here, and then the rain came--boy, did it ever! Mom was going to Grandpa's, and she just was able to run out the garbage and hop back in the car before a big old bolt of lightening streaked across the sky, and the thunderboomer rolled, and the rain came down in sheets! She said it was so hard to see where you were going, and the street sewers could not handle the water that came down, and big puddles were forming. She made it to Grandpa's okay. I like watching the rain come down, so I did that. But I sure was happy to have her back home with me!

Kim's house got broken into again. Her hubby left for about 90 minutes yesterday, and sure enough, when he came back the door was open. The TV was gone, and that is really all that they took. Guess they could not figure out how to get the monitor unattached. Kim has her tablet with her, so that is good. Her hubby's buddy has his to load some pictures and stuff on it. They need to get out of there!!!

Hope all is good with Russell Wilson's knee. Glad the Seahawks won, as did our Packers. Bears are getting mauled tonight.

Have a super rest of the night, and enjoy having your Mom home for the next 4 days! I know you will find some way to keep her busy and at home, right?

Wing hugs coming atcha!
Your buddy, Kaji

Come visit me, Kaji ~ So glad we had this time together.

  Hi Sugar!
That is nice your mom has four days off and can get caught up on sleep! My mom could never do three hours a night! She needs eight or nine! Your mom must have a lot of energy!
Today dad watched golf on tv and also the Eagles won so he was happy about that! Mom even watched the end of golf since it went into sudden death and the winner won around 12 million dollars! Boy, that would be a lot of toys and treats! I could even get a fleet of speed boats! Hehehe! Mom worked on the mural in our bird room. Today she did a huge hibiscus, sort of purple, and a bunch of Birds of Paradise. It is almost done and then she plans flying flamingos over the door!
Tomorrow they are going to Ford to do the paperwork for our new Ford Figo! Maybe they get to pick it up tomorrow too. It is supposed to be white and a stick shift. It is a little smaller than a Fiesta. Mom made brownies today for dad and will take some to the nice sales people at Ford. We haven't had a new car in 13 years so it is a treat!
Have fun having your mom home! Are you still destroying rubber duckies?
Big hugs and kisses! Picabo

  Hey Sugar,
Spelunking Part 6

As the aftershocks stop shaking the cave, every birdie is unsettled and scared. They all made it through the night with the help of everyone cooperating together they see sunlight. Then the hear someone calling Pookie, Laka, Polu, Tweetie! Pookie thinks he is dreaming and turns over to Dixie and says stop it, you sound like my mom...... Then Dixie says hey I must be in your dream cause I hear your mom too!

They both get up and get all the birdies up too. Now they are all screaming help!! They see mom looking in the hole above them. Mom!!! Pookie and the gang scream were down here!! Mom says okay I see ya! Everyone stand back! Papa Peter is going to break the opening and make it bigger. Everyone stands back and some of the rocks come tumbling down. Dad gets a step ladder and climbs down to get everyone. Okay everyone climb on and hang on to me! Every birdie climbs on to dad and he climbs up the ladder with all the birds.
Yay!!! We're saved!!! When they get up top momma Ruthie checks out all the birdies and makes sure they are okay. Okay let's get into the truck and go home. Everyone is so happy they sing the wheels on the truck as they head home. Everyone is so relieved that no one got hurt that their tummies start to rumble. Ooh and help yourselves to the food. We made it after the earthquake stopped. Oooh boy!! Everyone runs to the food table containing terriyaki meat on a stick, kalua pork, corn beef patties, potato Mac salad, sticky rice, tater tots, pineapple chunks, watermelon chunks, apples, grapes, kiwi and strawberries. Everything is birdie bite size which is just right for all the birdies. They all grab a plate and start piling up the food. Dixie and Pookies got a mountain on their plate. Cookie asks is there any pineapple cake? Ooh yes Cookie, it's at the end of the table. I just to make sure everyone eats nutritious foods first then the sweets last. But if you have room you can put it on your plate.
All you can hear is everyone eating as if they were starving for days. They were only out of food and water for 5 minutes till mom and dad found them all. Pookie and Dixie says it seemed like a long long long time tho!
After a good filing meal every birdie relaxes at Pookies house. There's enough room for everyone. Some birdies are hanging out at the pool, some are out back playing on the swings, and some are just snoozing in the tree. It's so good to be back in civilization! Sugar agrees with Kaji. Laka says hey, does everyone want to go hang out at the beach to have some fun?

Let me know so I can tell mom and dad. They need to get the beach gear to set up as we may want to stay a spell.

So everyone let me know!
Stay tuned for more of As The BC Turns, the saga continues.

Here's a vote for you.

Love & hugs,

Pookie and friends

It got really cold here ! ALL the windows are closed and it's only 49 degrees out ! High of 70 today . . . but that's OK, cause we're celebrating ME ! Yeppers, it's my hatchday so come on over ! Mom got corn on the cob and strawberries ! Plus the sugar snap peas were looking really good yesterday when she went to the market :) And I think I may finally get to see what was in that bag the folks brought home from BirdJungle last weekend when they went to get the new bulb for my lamp ! My Laura even called last night saying she was going to stop over - is life great, or what ?

  Hey Sugar,
Spelunking Part 5

Well we left off our BC friends last they were stuck in the underground caves. As the scouts come back they all decide to walk to where the opening up top is. After awhile of walking Laka tells everyone to turn off their headlamps to save the battery. First let's all gather some firewood since it'll be dark soon. I guess we'll all hafta spend the night here. I have no idea how cold caves get at night so let's all stick closely okay? Yeah everyone agrees with that. Hulk and Gus find a big log that will be good firewood for the night. It takes both of them to carry this big log. Meanwhile the other birds find little twigs and some grass to get the fire started. Chipper says maybe the smoke from the fire will alert anyone in the area and we will be saved! :) bThat's good thinking says Kaji but we need several plans just in case no one sees the smoke. Pearl and Jenny says yeah we need more plans. Once the fire gets going Cori and Sugar find more big logs to keep the fire going all night. This will keep us all warm! :). Very good girls says Silver, who's still carrying baby Tweetie who has clung herself to him. Ain't that cute says Cookie! Here let me carry her for awhile and Cookie reaches for the baby but she turns away. She doesn't want to go to him. Awwww okay, must be an earthquake after shock thing. Laka asks Pookie and Dixie what does the rest of the provisions look like? Pookie says well we have enough food and water to last us till tomorrow providing we don't eat it all tonight. Dixie says the snack ratio is only 2 per birds right now, minus the food that was lost in the quake. Laka says well right now the brownie level is down to one per birdie. That should last us through the night right gang? There's a low yeah from everyone as they are all worried about getting out. I miss my mommy says Piddy and Paddy! Ooh it's okay you guys says Pearl, we'll get out tomorrow when it's daylight and we can see. No worries! Sugar gives them a hug, let's not get down. Let's think positive okay? Pookie and Dixie pass out the food and water as everyone is hungry.
Hey how about a story? Yeah!! Come on Pookie! Let's hear a story, that'll take everyone's mind off of things.
Pookie says okay, everyone gather around the fire. Stay close and let's do the buddy system okay? Okay says everyone. Ahem.... Here's the story of Moki the mongoose. I think some of you may have heard this before.

Pookie starts once upon a time . . . . Then all of a sudden the cave starts rumbling again. Everyone starts screaming!!! Ooh no another earthquake!!! No, calm down its just an after shock! Yells Pookie.

Stay tuned for As The BC Turns, the saga continues.

Here's a vote for you.

Love & hugs,

Pookie and friends

  Heya, Miss Sugar!
Yeah, we agree! Who knew that the BC would still be here? Glad we are on YP, just in case!!

Well, I did not get to the farmer's market today--it never got past 65, and there was a light breeze and humidity, too. Mom said that it was not warm enough. I was not happy about it, either. She was not gone too long, though, and brought back some lovely yellow and red tomatoes for me. She said it was packed there, too, as they were having their Oktoberfest celebration--and that brings out a pile of folks who come for the beer and food, and never come otherwise. Mom was glad to get out of there, too, as people were driving crazy!!!

Other than that, it was a nice day. A bit chilly out there now cuz it is damp. And tomorrow they promise us rain and more rain. We did watch the Badgers win over Michigan State. That was fun. Brewers lost, though. Tomorrow is the Packers game.

Kim is in the hospital. She said that they were debating about sending her home, but they kept her. Thank God, too. She spiked a high fever once she was in her room, and they were trying to get it down, including putting ice around her. That helped a lot. She said it was pretty bad for a couple hours, and she finally was able to get a little sleep around 4 AM. Mom will stop to see her on Monday, depending on what they have planned for her. Guess the wound care clinic folks will come to see her then too.

Wing hugs coming atcha!

  Hi My Loving Sweet Sugar
Poor Aunt Eileen having all that work to do all alone with no help!I sure do hope that she will get some help when she goes back to it on next Thursday night.It sure sounds like that those ads are lots of work especially with all the coupons,it really sounds so time consuming!Mom has those kinds of days where she can only get one thing done in a day.Its so frustrating thinking that you've got so much work to do and then only get the one thing done,but the one thing you're getting done takes the whole day and especially for Aunt Eileen who needs someone to watch over McKenzie so she can get a full chore done without any interruptions!Oh don't you just love veggie chow mien?I love how they make the broccoli in it also.How sweet of Ian to get it for you all for lunch!Nana does have a big yard front and back,more land than we do here with lots of vegetation that is so overgrown in the trees and the bushes on her land.Nana used to be able to keep up with it but now with her bad aching painful hip she can't do much anymore out there without tripping or falling down.Mom is so happy that Nana is in her own home too,she's so much happier there taking care of Bella and Trixie which keeps her busy.Plus trying to get all her house chores done.She's so stubborn and won't let Mom help her vacuum or do things while she's there for her.Nana has asked Anthony to help with the yard work and she'll even pay him but he's never had a day off in nearly a month now.How awesome that Aunt Eileen's brother and family lived with her Mom to keep her company,its so sad that she's no longer there and I bet Aunt Eileen misses her too.
It was a quiet day here and the only visitor we had was Anthony coming by to pick up his mail and to give Mom his paycheck money so she could finish getting his bills ready to go out when they are ready to be paid.He picked up the 2 and a half weeks worth of sandwiches that Mom made for him this morning.Mom threw in a bag of Gold Fish honey bun graham snacks too!Tomorrow she has to make dads sandwiches for his work week.And depending on the weather they might have a BBQ when dad gets home from work if its not too late.Both Shiloh and Anthony want to come for that as usual.
I love you more than you will ever know and you bring me the sunshine and make my world a happy place to be!Angel wing hugs and soft Angel kisses on the wings of a summer breeze!I love you always and forever,more than words can be written on paper!Here I come for our story and our snuggle time together!It will never be my last Angel wing hugs for you,they will be there always!Loving you always and forever,Gabbie

Aunt Rose calls them from the kitchen and the friends all waddle out to the dining room.Aunt Rose tells Sugar that they are the ones thanking Sugar for being here!They all look forward to having her share in their Saturday night pizza dinners!Both Dixie and Candida would love to have a pizza night at Sugar's house!They agree that would be so much fun!But until then they so love having her here with them every Saturday night joining them and being able to cuddle close to her after dinner is done.Aunt Rose tells Sugar that she never has to thank them ever,she belongs here with them and is considered a part of their family here.They all love her and she's the one that puts smiles on all their faces and brightens their days!They love her for all she does for them!We love you so much Sugar and thank you for all you do for us!You mean the world to us and always will!

are so excited to see Sugar waddling into the Bird Room and they all run to her and hug her tight never wanting to let her go!Dixie giggles and tells Sugar that they hadn't even had lunch yet and that when Sugar tells them that she's got some fair scones for them to share in celebration of the fair's finally leaving they all agree with her they might as well enjoy them now and then they will have some pizza to enjoy for dinner!Sugar just made their Pizza Saturday so special!They all settle into the play tent and enjoy the scones and some juice boxes as Sugar begins reading them the book she brought for them today!
This story is called "Scaredy Squirrel".Squirrel is really afraid of everything and he never leaves his tree because he's afraid of what is out there.Some of the things he's afraid of are Tarantulas,poison ivy,green martians,killer bees,germs and sharks!He knows that if he stays put he'll never have to deal with any of those things,and the advantages to staying in his tree is that he has a great view,plenty of nuts and no scary things!The disadvantages are that its the same old view,the same old nuts and the same old place.Everyday squirrel gets up at 6:45 am,he has a nut and looks out the window for a while.Then he has a nut again and looks out the window again!After a dinner of nuts he goes to bed.One day he decides to make and emergency kit just in case he has to leave his tree.He puts first aid items in there and some food too.He decides to practice his emergency exit.First thing to do is panic!Then he has to run around like a crazy squirrel,then he has to grab the emergency pack and run out on a branch!But when he runs out on the branch a killer bee lands on his emergency back pack and now there's a real emergency.Squirrel panics and starts to run.He doesn't look where he's going and runs right off the tree branch.Squirrel is surprised to see he doesn't fall to the ground!He's gliding.He drops his emergency pack and floats to the ground!The emergency is now over and he doesn't bother to grab the emergency pack since he dropped it into a poison ivy plant!This had changed Squirrels life and now every day he gets up at 6:45 am,eats a nut,looks out the window and then jumps out the window.He still has nuts for dinner and still goes to bed at the same time but something new to do has made him a much happier squirrel.He's still a scaredy squirrel but a very happy one!
The friends enjoy the scones and the juice boxes and they are all rolling around giggling at how silly that squirrel is and Dixie and Candida both agree with Sugar,where did he ever see a tarantula!
They kick back and relax while they wait for lunch.Dixie and Candida tell Sugar that they love those quiet days and they are so happy that Aunt Eileen won't have to be getting up so early to leave the house to get to work after this last one more night!They are so happy to hear that she will be able to get some sleep tonight too!How awesome that Ian bought pizza for them

  Hi Sugar
Moms mom was all from the same area where mom lives now. Moms maternal grandfather was from this area but her maternal grandma lived in Johnstown till she married and moved in this area then. Mom grew up about 20 minutes from this area and that is where her paternal grandparents and an uncle and a couple of aunts lived. The paternal grandparents had passed before mom was born. The paternal grandfather came from Moneymore,Ireland and settled in Pittsburgh, Pa. Later when he married they moved to Lower Burrell, Pa on a farm and that is where mom grew up.
Moms dad worked 2 week shifts on 3 different shifts in a steel mill and he always hated the midnight to 8 am shift the worse. Imagine its hard to get used to and hard on the body too.
The pain is slowly (very slowly for mom) going away but knows its still there LOL.Having fibromyalgia makes it hurt and last longer too.
Here we are heading into another weekend and its rumored BC doesn’t work on weekends so guess we will be around yet on Monday!
Today was a cloudy drab day other then the two or so hours this afternoon when the sun shined nice. It was cold so I never did gat my sunbath today. We hope there are a few more nice days left for that yet!
Mom worked on her computer organizing pictures and she was right in my eagle eyes view so if I wanted to sit with her I could or just know she was right there…sure worked for me! Mom will be adding to the grands albums once the weather cools down again. She does that every year when its not nice out any more.

Mom gave up on the cleaning but she says that's okay because its not going anywhere that's the beauty of it.
My mom says she hears that from a few people that they have a hard time finding when they can use all their vacation time up.
Started off really gloomy here again but by late afternoon the sun finally came out sure has been awhile since we have seen it. Have a good evening my friend.

  Ahoy, Sugar,
Captain Barnacles on deck just chilling!
And I mean chilling. It was in the low 50's when Mom got up with Bo this morning. Fall fell in last night big time.
Mom worked 4 days this week and now gets up on school schedule. Bo didn't get up Friday until after Mom left for work! Today she heard Mom get up and did her "I want breakfast" dance.
This weather starts the countdown until the boat comes out of the water at the very end of October. Dad will miss the boat. Mom will still go to the marina to see the ducks and the gulls. Her gull, Spirit, stays all winter looking for Mom and some crackers.
Tomorrow I will have a special treat in celebration of Cookie's hatch day. We will have plenty of snacks with Mom and Dad's birthday coming up. Bo doesn't need a snack. Mom's cousin came for dinner Thursday. Aunt Paula gave each of us a small snack but Uncle Ray gave Bo a whole handful. That bunny needs to use the treadmill.
Traffic here has been crazy. Mom got behind a school bus on her way to work. It seemed to stop every couple of houses and the Mom's all had to talk to the bus driver. It took forever to get to the parkway.
Glad Mackenzie has quieted down a bit. Your Mom deserves the peace. Of course your sounds are musical, not just noise. We have a responsibility to keep the world filled with music.
I hope work is kind to your Mom. Enjoy your day. Happy half birthday to Ian--he gets half a treat!
Captain Barnacles on deck just chilling on a fall day!

  Hi Sugar!
Thanks for your blog! Mom has been lazy to do our blogging! Today we are hanging out in the bird room. Mom is painting tropical plants and birds on the walls in there so we have been going outside while she does that. Not sure if she will paint today or be lazy! It is in the 80s today but has mostly been in the 90s around here. So a little warmer than most summers! It should be mostly 80s in October!
The carpenter finished and installed our bird room barn doors. They are really pretty with panels of different glass. Some oanels are clear so mom can keep an eye on us and we can see her. It wasn't planned that way but worked out. Mom doesn't think the doors will be closed much anyway.
Yesterday mom made a lot of bird toys, mostly for the lovebirds. The outside aviary birds started laying eggs in the beginning of Sept.! That is a month early! So dad wasn't checking and then they were afraid to throw out the eggs in case babies were about to hatch. Mom looked yesterday and there is one big ole baby in one of the nests but the other eggs haven't hatched yet. There are ten eggs! We sure don't need more lovebirds!
More cats keep showing up! I think i told you about CT (Crooked Tail) who arrived in June. Mom got him fixed and he follows her all over the yard and guards the house. He has been inside a few times now but seems to prefer outside. When mom is inside, he lays across the front door. About a month ago, Trix showed up. He is already fixed and clearly someone's cat, probably dumped here at the beach. Mom fed him a few times and then he was gone. Now he is back and starving to death. So he is getting a lot of food here and when mom went into the casita, he followed and jumped up on the sofa, curled up and went to sleep. So guess he has a new home too. Our other cats don't like him so he will have to hang out in the casita! He is a sweet guy!
Hope you have a nice weekend! It is a novelty to have internet on the weekends again! Hehehe! Oh, almost forgot! Candy wrote mom and the doctors said Ron could come down to Mexico to their house for two weeks. So my parronts are picking them up at the airport on Oct. 25th to take them to their house. Mom has the workers getting the house ready so it will look nice and have all the repairs done before they arrive so they won't have to worry about anything. It will be so nice for Ron to get to his House!
Big hugs and kisses! Love, Picabo

  hi Sugar !
It's the weekend and the weather is screaming FALL ! The heat disappeared overnight and the whole week we'll be in the high 60's and low 70's . . . Today is visiting the g'parronts day - but we all know that also means sugar snap pea and fresh veggies day too, so I'll keep myself busy with my heap till the folks get home.

Did you see ? The few of us left here on BC have celebrating to do today ! Miss Chipper made 15K last night and the Quaker Little Dragons are in the BOTD box ! PARTY in the dragon cave ! And you're right - it's a busy week with hatchdays and birthdays ! More party !

Have a wonderful day - love you bunches ! Cookie
