  Hi Sugar
Yes, Mom and I both love that blanket. So glad Chief Panther had enough extras to go around.

I had my sunbath early today. Mom got me outside at 9:30 by a very dirty trick. She stood over the carrier eating (and sharing) that pb cookie, and then made sure I saw her put a piece on the perch. I was standing on the edge of the carrier, and when I leaned over to check it out she bumped my bottom and in I went and closed went the lid! How rude. Of course, once we got outside I was good with it. And just in time too. Dad was watching the weather on TV at 10:30, and although they still showed a forecast high of 94, it was already 96 degrees! It only made it to 100 today, but any time it hits triple digits that is just too hot.

Good response already on the pig races, and that is very much appreciated. We already have a list begun of new potential riders, so there are plenty of alternates if some of our previous racers are unable to attend or ride.

Mom went to zumba today, and I have to say I just don't understand how she can come home, listen to me calling her, and still insist on a shower first. I admit it was a very quick shower and she did come into my room as soon as she was dressed, but still... Oh, and we had pizza for lunch. Our local store, Albertson's, has a store brand of pizza that is as good as most pizzerias. I liked it, although I have to say spinach has no place on a pizza. I finally have the proof; my mom is nuts!

I have not been getten on BC till the afternoons.
Dad has been trying to fix the speedometer in his 89 truck.
Its elactronic!!! He has replaced the dash board 3 times now with ones from salvage yards. It only works for a little while. Then the overdrive & speed control kick out. They want $375 to repair his with a 2 week down time. The truck will not run without one instaled!! He cant be without his turck for two weeks!!!!

He found a app for his smarter than he is phone that is a speedometer. It works just fine so Dad made a holder for the ph in front of the speedometer. Has a odomater & a trip meter in it too!!

That is what has been going on at my house. It did cool down to the 80s & no rain.

  Hi Sugar,

How are you, Girlfriend? It's Oz. Mom was out from around 12:30 yesterday til about 10:30 last night & I was covered before she came home so I didn't even get to see her! She went to her Brother & Sister In Law's (she's one of her Best Friends) and she did some shopping & then they had dinner out & they play games! Today she ran to Walmart (not Mom's favorite but you can't beat their prices), Dollar General & then the Cleaners. She came home, put everything away and did our cages & fed us! She's gonna empty the Dishwasher & she said that's it cause her neck & back are killing her. She just got on the computer about 1/2 hr. ago but she has to get off soon. Okay, have a great rest of the weekend. Here's a vote for you, Sugar. Bye for now.

Love & Winghugs,
Oz (Your Pink Friend)

  Hi Sugar, Pippo & Mei Mei
I would love to race again, but I think mom can't be certain that she will have puter time. Dad is still funny about the WiFi running.
We have cool right now cause there was rain, but we are suppose to warm up again. It will be the last week of summer vacation. I'm not ready for mom to go back to helping at school.
Did YOU get to try some of the tamale pie? I would beg for that. Mom sometimes makes a creation of her own. Layers plain tomato sauce, or with meat, corn tortilla, refried beans, tofu, shredded cheese(usually cheddar), repeat to fill caserole or crock pot. It too is bland, but the skins seem to like it. Now tho, skinsis can't handle to tofu(beans) or tomato sauce so mom doesn't often make it. I like nibbling/shredding soft corn tortillas.
Skinsis took care of me this morning, that means I got to play in her room.

Hi Sugar,
Mommy's busy making German potato salad for the annual bird club picnic tomorrow, and skin sis is making an amazing dessert. Wish I could go and have some of that wonderful food. There probably won't be any left to bring home either. Mommy did let me help lick the beaters though this morning. Boy, were they ever good! Skin sis is leaving Tues. and Mommy is leaving either Tues. or Wed. for CO to visit another skin sis. So my blogs will be very erratic if at all for a while.
Sending lots of love your way from Little Miss Lucy♥

  Hi Woogery Bear & aunt Auda-Jen, Christy, & Mandy
...we can clearly see that you folks are getting ready for the County Fair Milonga, and the pig races! We are not certain at this point if we will participate this year, it is very tough for our daddy, but he will be available, if we can get our old piggy again! We'll see, it is something we always loved, and we appreciate all the presenters of the Milongas do for all of us, especially Kiddo, SP, Taz, Kaji, Lizzie, & Sam I Am! We are hoping for a slow Saturday, filled with life's little pleasures, and wish the same for you all! The geeky weather guessers are now saying that TS Erika will NOT develop into a hurricane, thank goodness, but a lot of heavy rain will take place! We have a full agenda on our schedule today, so we better get at it! Have a great Saturday and give our love to our sweet voiced aunt Eileen, and all in your happy hut, see ya tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny, Christy, & our Dallas family

PS~Thanks for the phone call last night uncle Art, you are always a pleasure to speak with!

It's Popeye.
We protest! Our mom and dad NEVER stay home. NOT NICE! Yesterday they were gone all afternoon! UNFAIR!
Does anybirdy have any ideas on how to make them stay at home? We're listening.
Today will be hot hot hot, with a high of 98 and a low of 69. Mom and dad will probably leave and find a cool spot somewhere. We Protest!
Hope your day was fun.

It will be nice to see dad again, and if they don't go out, you will get some time, too. Hope Jennifer enjoys the weekend with her dad. Spilling coke on the floor makes quite a mess, it usually seems like a gallon of sugar has been spilled.
This morning mom had a terrible time signing on to BC. It took at least a dozen tries from everywhere on the computer but we're here now!
We got a big surprise yesterday, thanks Uncle Chuck! Mom says they match the kitchen perfectly! And we love our new toys, too.
Well, Aunt Rose is on her way to meet us soon, and we know she's meeting lots of BC folks on the way here, too. It sounds like the ideal vacation to us.
It looks like a perfect summer day here, so we know where mom will be. At least for the afternoon, that is. Later on, she's ours. Tomorrow morning John comes to fix the wall for the backsplash and install the new floor. Mom told him to be here well before noon, so she can go to the pool, hahaha!
I hope you are having a great summer day with lots of good weather and cuddles, too. Hugs, Falco

  Hi, Sugar
Got hot here yesterday. It was an oven when mom left work so know it was in the 90s. Not humid but staying indoors with the a/c. Hopefully you get the needed rain there. None in sight here.

It would be funny to see a corporate type trying to run a register, answer the phones, check the puter, keep the breaks/lunches organized, answer random question, etc, etc at the same time and still have a smile, be friendly et al. Assume your mom's store has the surveys shoppers can do? Mom's done 'em for other stores and it won't let you skip any questions. Apparently the one at mom's store lets you get away with not answering so often the score is low due to that. Just not fair if a shopper doesn't fill it out correctly and has positive comments.

The planograms are printed from the puter and need a magnifying glass, microscope and powerful glasses to read 'em. Mom's glad she rarely has to deal with 'em as that is part of the stock crews job. Mom gets irked when they rearrange and then don't move the sale signs! Looks bad when a high priced item has a lower price (incorrect) tag or a sale sign that actually pertains to another item. The shoppers focus on the price and not so much the words.

How fun to have the old semi boss be promoted to be the new boss. Did he remember your mom?

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Sugar
vulture populations are plummeting in Africa
Africa's eight vulture species have declined in number by an average of 62 percent during the last 30 years. vultures are one of nature's most important scavengers—a flock can strip a carcass in a matter of minutes.these natural recyclers, which breed slowly and need years to mature, could be extinct in Africa in the next 50 to 100 years.

poisoning from eating pesticide-laced carcasses caused as many as 60 percent of the vulture deaths recorded since the 1970s.When a large predator such as a lion kills livestock, a farmer will sometimes sprinkle poison on the carcass to kill the predator in retaliation, Vultures usually get to the corpse first. They die after eating the pesticide-laced carcasses intended for lions and other predators. Pesticides are poorly regulated in Africa, and sold as "lion killer" . many farmers don't know what the chemicals are really used for.vultures have largely disappeared from commercial farming areas where pesticide are used

Vultures often collide with the wind turbines and are crushed or are electrocuted by power lines

Vultures are also also targets for poachers, who sell their parts to people who use witchcraft. The birds are known for their tremendous eyesight, and many believe their body parts can be used to see into the future.Their brains are ground to snuff by witch doctors who believe the substance has magical powers.

The scavengers also die after feeding on carcasses left behind by poachers. Illegal hunters poison the corpses to throw off law enforcement, which use circling vultures as a beacon for illegal activity.500 dead vultures were found surrounding a pesticide-laden elephant carcass poachers had poisoned leaving the bodies to rot. terrorists groups are profiting the most from poaching affording them lucrative profits to buy guns and bombs

I hope that your mom found some good movies to watch over the weekend. I love popcorn, too!! Does your mom give you rice cakes? They are another favorite snack that I enjoy. Mom cleaned all of our cages today and I am acting like a toad again. Lol Sometimes I get hormonal and I defend my cage, when mom gets near it. When I am being a "toad", mom has to be careful because I can bite very hard. Last month I tore the nail off of her index finger.(Ouch) I don't know why I get so nasty sometimes. Mom says I am just an old grouchy bird and I am just being a "zon". The weather has been nice here. I am hoping for more of the same over the weekend. I hope that you and your family have a wonderful weekend.

  HI SUGAR!!!!
Pecked a V4U...Today for my campaign blog I will be talking about the Casino Theatre and Village Malt Shoppe Mt.Pocono,Pa..It was originally a one story 1922 Casino building used as a dance hall & night club which was converted to a movie theatre after being purchased by a woman from Stroudsburg...Then it was sold in 1974 to three couples one by the name of Mr.& Mrs. George Litz..The families renovated & modernized the vintage structure opening the business 4/4/1975..Less than a year after the grand opening the structure burned to the ground..The new building opened 4 months later 7/1976.A new single screen movie theatre & new ice cream parlor.The new building was built with a slanted floor allowing a modern movie-going experience instead of the neck-craning involved when watching a film from a flat floor..Within a few years the Litzes bought out their partners and began expanding the operation.Today after more than 30 yrs.the Litz Family still own and operate the Casino which is in its second generation. The Casino is now a 2 screen movie house & ice cream shop. It shows first run movies plus still features an old fashioned soda fountain with many flavors of ice cream as well. Plus the Movie Theatre & Malt Shop they added a Sandwich Restaurant, Children's Arcade, Miniature Golf Operation and a Gift Shop with the 1950's theme of decor featuring nostalgia & retro items were added with items featuring Betty Boop, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, I Love Lucy & other Icons of the 1950's...Well my friends I do hope this might also be something you would like to see while visiting in the Poconos...Have a nice Friday...Thank you all again for voting for me everyday...I certainly do appreciate it...Many wing hugs....CYDNEY :o)

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

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

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

Wow, that's a lot of races! Mom made pesto last night, so we got some basil flowers to eat. YUMMY! And they smell so good, too! Mom froze 5 containers of it, so it will be great to have in the winter.
Mom's haircut looks funny to us, but she says it will grow back before you know it. It's really short, though! We hope you are having a fine day today and getting lots of mom time. Hugs, Willie and Peppino

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.

  Hi Sugar
We could use some rain here, too, the grass is crispy!
Today mom cleaned the avian nursery at the center. There were the usual suspects in there, pigeons, mourning doves, robins, sparrows, etc., but there were also some cool different birds; a couple of mockingbirds, a killdeer, a catbird, and a crow. It was a busy morning, and when she got home, it was warm enough to go to the pool, so that's where she spent the afternoon. Now she's ours for the rest of the day, YAY!
Still no word about the counter tops, and mom is really getting frustrated. She so hoped it would be done by now. John is coming to put the floor in and get the wall ready for the backsplash on Sunday, so that's some progress at least.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of good weather and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hey Sugar
Today is another hot day 105 degrees+...I'm making sidewalk fried eggs. Would you like some? Over easy or scrambled any way you like them heehee!!!

Happy TGIF!!!
Nobody but Raffi got the answer right... Due to the confusion I have caused or the lack of memory heehee ! Sorry about that.

As I have told you long ago that all tribes including my tribe has different clans and society.I am in the Elk horn scraper the mans clan.Congrats Raffi on your first place win you aced this one!
Raffi gets first pick on his favorite jewlery.I am giving you all a chance to win the other pieces of jewlery.

Heres the Question ...

In the story of courtship what did the Thunder Bird spirit do to rescue Raffi from the jaws of the Lake monster?

Get your memory going like I always say to my mommy.The first seven birds who get the right answer will win some jewlery...
I will announce the winners tomorrow...

Much love to you all
Your King War Chief

  Hi Sugar
Mom had to pick up a few things earlier this week before jam. As a treat for herself she got a bake and serve pizza. She cut it up and froze slices, I see her eating some for lunch. Today's treat: pizza crust, happy bird.
Mom says I can supervise her watching the rest of a movie and sorting newspapers to recycle—the sorted ones are recycled to the bottom of our cages, and UNDER our cages on the end tables where our cages sit. She may offer the Polly Perch, but I WILL refuse.
Last night's meeting got a list of phone calls for mom to do. I HATE the phone. We will see IF I can get her to ignore that thing.
Skinbro just got us LUNCH. I am a happy bird now. Mom is needing to get busy and get the rest of the paper stack sorted. It is warming up. Getting into the mid 80s next week. Tomorrow is to bring rain. Are you keeping the turtles safe???

  Hi Sugar
It's Popeye.
Phooy! We're having another hot, humid day. Yesterday and the day before were both "Save Power" days so mom and dad left the house for the afternoon. Yesterday they went to visit Ron. He's doing great and will be in the rehab center for about another month.
We got some fresh, sweet, juicy watermelon. Wow, is it ever yummy. Dad bought a small, seedless, mini-watermelon and boy, it's just right. We can hardly wait for treat time today.
Today will be clear and hot, with a high of 100 and a low of 70.
Hope your day was fun.
