  October BOTM POST number sixteen
Hello. Hello. Quit that. Quit that. Geesh. Geesh. It's me Jesse, the real Jesse with today's BOTM Adventure Post.
Snowflake looks at her double, " Two Snowflakes are better than one heehee" Her double laughs too.
"You know this could be fun, especially when time for grooming." Cookie says, " then again how can I tell which me, is me?" he frowns and his double copies his every move.
Jesse stands tall, trying to see if he can find a logical answer to this double-trouble. He finds BonBon sitting on the path in front of her double. She is carefully grooming out the spider webs from her feathers.
"What are you doing?" says Jesse.
"Preening! After all, I am a pretty bird! I can't be seen with this junk on my feathers. So when I found this mirror, I decided it was a good idea to clean up some!"
"MIRROR!" shouts Jesse. "Hey Spot, these are mirrors!" Jesse yells eggcitedly.
Spot looks critically at his double and says," I hope I don't really look this bad! He starts to preen as well."
"Aaaaaagh" says Jesse. "We are still missing birds! Clean up later!" Jesse is thrilled to learn that the doubles are in fact mirror-images. " we can keep going. Our doubles are just reflections in mirrors. That's why they do everything we do exactly, they are us, only doubles." Jesse scratches his head,, "Ok, that was even confusing to me, but the point is, we can leave the doubles behind."
Snowflake frowns, "I kinda like my double. She's beautiful, and loves to giggle just like me."
Kiddo comes to where Jesse is standing, a sad, worried look on his face. "OH NO! Where is my SweetPepper??!! I have no idea, and it is really scaring me that my wifebird in now one of the missing. We need to find the Macaw Guard right away for some help. Maybe George the Tiger could help with his superior smelling abilities."
Jesse agrees, and helping Kiddo up onto a large boulder, he waits as Kiddo calls "GEORGE! GEORGE! We need your help!"
"I sure hope he hear me." Kiddo says climbing back down. " we have to locate the missing birds."
"We will, don't worry. We can't be too far from the Castle now." Jesse replies encouragingly. " let's get everybirdie ready and keep going. We'll be safe at the castle soon."
Kiddo and Jesse wander around the group of double-birdies, telling everyone the news that they will soon be at the Castle. Bidding farewell to themselves they leave their double behind, as they start off once more along the worn path. The ground slants upwards as they continue to walk quickly along. The late day sun feels warm on their backs. After a while Jesse stops for a break and sits down on a large rock,looks up, and seeeeeeeeeeeeeees

  Hi Sugar
Cats sure are weird, eating green plants is a good example of that! They are carnivores!
I hope you were able to taste test the rigatoni, I bet it was good.
Yesterday Willie's lamp went out in the middle of the day. Mom looked at it, changed the bulb, which didn't fix the problem, then unplugged it. She looked more carefully and it looked like Mr. Willie chewed a piece of the cord, so she took it to be repaired today. The guy at the store thinks the tiny hole in the cord wouldn't have caused a problem so they will keep it and see what's wrong. While she was out, mom got new branch loppers today, because she can't find the ones she thought were here. Of course, we all know what will happen, right? As soon as she starts using the new ones, the old ones will show up. Well, so far, that hasn't happened. She used the new ones to chop down some rose branches that were too close to the mailbox, as well as a weed bush growing on the end of the yard. Then she got the hedge choppers and cut down some of the peony bushes. She took down the fountain, cleaned it and put it away for the winter. Then she put out the scarecrows and pumpkins. So far, no old branch loppers have made an appearance. She came inside because it got too damp and chilly to keep working out there. Now mom is ours for the rest of the day.
I hope you are having a good day today, getting lots of love and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Sugar
Mom saw that story about the gray on FB. She was pretty impressed with the bird. You're right, though, he should be named Houdini. Mom just read the first 2 volumes of the Pearl diaries. The story was interesting, but the writing, grammar, syntax, and spelling were horrid. She said it was making her eyes bleed! The books must have been self published, because no respectable editor would have ever let that past his/her desk. It sounds like your mom is like mine, an avid reader. Libraries and book stores are so much fun for her. We will be by tonight to sample another of the terrific books mom got for you and all of us. Hugs and angel kisses, Divo and Gizmo

...well sweetie, you sure got our Angel wound up, all she can talk about is story night at the McClelland home, bless her sweet heart! We are praying for all our East Coast friends, that they will all be safe from the nasty storms blowing up the coast! Our weather is very typical Fall like, with no sun yet, maybe later! We all had a great time with dad yesterday, he was showering us all with more attention than usual and we were all eating it up! Dad insists that his love for us has no boundaries, and he wants to spend more time showing us! He made at last a half a dozen new toys, and has decided to make them smaller! Happy hump day buddy birds, and give my love to the primary book reader and story tell, Ms Auda, and all in your fabulous home, see ya all tomorrow...

watches as Sugar waddles quietly down the hall and as she peers around the corner she notices Dixie waiting by the bird room door!A warm smile on her beak she waddles down the hall and into the room throwing her wings around him and holding him tightly she tells him just how very happy she is to be here with him tonight!Dixie holds Sugar as tight as he can and hugs her close to him and tells her how happy he is that they are finally here together after a long time waiting for this moment to come!
Dixie tells Sugar that the vet finally called back at 5:30pm right as Mom was cleaning up the dinner dishes.She told Mom that I had an infection in my eye that caused the growth on the white eye ring of my eye.She said it was caused by my beak and or sinuses and I have to finish the whole bottle of antibiotics and the eye drops also.I really didn't want to hear that part of it!Dixie just loves it when Sugar gets to have some time with her sweet Mom!Its always so much fun to play with toys and have Mom right there with you joining in!
Dixie and Sugar waddle on over to the platform and snuggle close together!Dixie takes the Hello Kitty Lunch Box from Sugar and upon opening it he sees Cherry turnovers inside! Dixie inhales the aroma that makes his beak water!As Sugar fills two glasses with Cherry smoothie for them,he places the turnovers on napkins for them!They begin nibbling on the turnovers and taking sips from their smoothies as Sugar begins reading the story she brought for them tonight!
The story is called Those Darn Squirrels and the Cat Next Door.The squirrels keep sneaking into old man Fookwink's house to keep warm and eat whatever he has that they can find and they are driving him crazy the whole winter!At last Spring is back and old Man Fookwink is so thrilled to see the birds returning!He spends all day outside just painting pictures of the birds!He leaves to go home and have some dinner and discovers the squirrels playing chess inside his house!He chases them out and then has his dinner.He hears some loud noises and checks out what those squirrels are up to now!Looking out his window he sees that Old Lady Hu is moving in next door!Old man Fookwink doesn't like company and he is a grumpy guy and likes to be alone and quiet.Old lady Hu runs the bakery in town and brings a pie over for him!He refuses to answer the door so she just leaves the pie!He begins to smell the pie as the squirrels come by and eat the whole pie up!Old lady Hu has a big orange cat named Muffin.She had moved out to the forest so that Muffin can have some new friends,as he was not a very popular cat in town.Old lady Hu thinks Muffin is the best cat ever,but he is really a very mean cat!He chases the birds but they fly to the tops of the trees to keep away from him!He grabs the squirrels and tries bullying them!So the squirrels agree that the cat has to be taught a lesson!They plot out a plan and the next day when Muffin comes to catch the birds,the birds fly way up high

Happy Humpday ! It's pouring rain on us all day today and tomorrow - how very dreary ! Thank goodness my new lamp came yesterday - I love when the UPS guy comes to the door, I always yell HEY to him and he calls back !
I especially love when he brings something for me !

So I'll do some napping today while everyone is gone. Mom came home right after putting kids on the school buses yesterday with a headache and sore throat, thinking she was getting her first cold of the season. So daddy stopped for Chinese food on the way home so she wouldn't have to cook - and it worked ! Some wonton soup, a good night's sleep and she feels better this morning !

Hope all is well on your perch ! Have a great day - love to you, Cookie

The rain has finally stopped here. But, still cold! At least we don't have snow yet.
Do you get to go with mom to the Halloween party? She could dress as a pirate and you could ride on her shoulder. Your dad sure has to drive far ... not fun.
We saw the sun today for a little while. But, it was still cold. Half of the trees are bare now. Looks like it's almost time to start the long, long winter. Join me for some hot chocolate.

Aw, that is so cool that your Mom will help out with the party at her work. Bet it is fun, too!! And bet it will be nice to see your Dad again, too!

Cold day here. Mom says she wishes she could have perched like me all day. But she had her dentist appt.--and she got there early by 30 minutes. Unknown to her, they called and asked her if she could come in early! So she got home earlier, and I was happy! On her shoulder now, ready to take a fast nap before we call it a day.

Well we will be getting rain starting tonight and going into Thursday with temps around middle 50's..So that is not to bad to handle...But, of course it is almost the end of October so we can expect much colder weather anytime here...We live here in a gated community and for Halloween we get very few Trick or Treater's because the houses are not close together and the parents must drive them house to house..Also there are no street lights except if you have one put up yourself at the end of your driveway....Hope you are having a nice day...Just pecked a V4U...With many birdie wing hugs to you my friend...Love, Cydney :o)

  October BOTM POST number fifteen
Hi everybird, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. It is such a relief to be free from those creepy, crawly, ucky black Monster sized Spiders. I didn't wanta say anything but I think that some of them are the Giant Birdeater Spiders. "YUCK, is all I can say."
"Where are Sweetpepper, Apache and Pearl gone?" Kiddo asks in fear for his wife-bird and friends.
"Not again" Jesse says his yellow face turning a ghostly white. "they have to be here, I just saw them a moment ago!" Jesse brings to run back and forth searching under every bush, behind every tree and asks everybirdie, but he is unable to find his missing friends. Sadly he returns to where Sky is in deep conversation with Jake and Spot.
" We have to get to the Castle. We can't delay. Our friends are gone, and we have to save them." Sky's voice hesitates for a moment, before finishing his sentence, " before it's too late"
"Everybirdie" Jesse calls out loudly, " we are going to follow a path I found searching for Sweetpepper and the others. It looks well traveled, it must lead to the Castle. We have to hurry, it's getting late, the sun will be setting soon."
Jesse leads out, following the path, watching carefully for anything "odd" he might find along it. Everything is fine, and he begins to relax, the birdies are making greyt time, they will be safely at the Castle soon. Then he can return with help to find their missing friends.
"JESSE?" Spot flies up to walk with him, have you noticed anything weird?
"Nope, everything looks fine. WHY?" Jesse asks an edge of concern to his voice.
"No reason, well, maybe it might be odd, maybe not but have you noticed that every tree is planted beside another one that is the same?"
Jesse looks at the trees beside the path, and certainly it is true, every tree has a perfect match to it. He continues to watch as he walks quickly along. Every rock and every bush also has a double.
"Yeah, it sure is odd Spot." Jesse turns his head to speak to Spot and let's out a terrified scream, " SPOT? SPOT?" he yells in terror, as his eyes fall upon not one but two Spots. Jesse screams again, and a perfect echo follows, causing him to snap his head to the right to come beak to beak with "HIMSELF! AHHHHHHHHHHH!"
"SKY, JAKE, come quickly!" the two Jesse's scream in echo of one another. Jesse tries to get away from himself, but his double follows every move he makes. he sees Sky and Jake coming his direction, and stops. There are two of each of them, in fact everywhere Jesse looks there are two of everybirdie. The others realize that they too have a perfect double and fear spreads like fire among the group.
"Falco? BooBoo?" Hulk asks then backs away unsure of which one is the real Falco and the real BooBoo.

  Hi Sugar
10 is the hottest, and mom has never tried it. She wants to taste the food, not just the heat. There has always been a rivalry between Pitt and WVU, probably because they are close geographically, and have comparable athletic programs. There are many universities in Pittsburgh, as well as Pitt. There are Duquesne, Carnegie Mellon, Chatham, Carlow, Point Park, Robert Morris, and of course, the community college branches. There is even a Penn State extension close by, but not in the city.
Today is a pretty lazy day for all of us. Mom got her nails done, then came home to be with us. She carried in the African violets a while back because of the weather, so today she's closing the fountain, bringing in the rest of the house plants, and maybe planting the amaryllis and paper whites her friend left for her. There is still a Boston fern outside, as well as a succulent dish garden. We hope they have both survived the chilly nights lately. If not, well, there's always the nursery next year.
I hope you are having a good day today, and getting lots of sun, cuddles, and kisses. Hugs, Falco

It sounds like mom goes to the library at the right time. No sense going when it is full of kids. We both hope she gets caught up on her sleep as soon as the 8 days are over. That's a long time to work without a break.
Mom told Dania to make sure she knows the laws both in Lebanon and Canada before getting a new bird.

We are rainy again today. When mom was out at 5 am it was dry, at 6 am it was misty, by 7 everything was wet. The rest of the weak is in the 50s and dry. Mom is thinking she may get to rake leaves. Skinbro has 4 bags so far.(He did them Sunday before it rained)

  Hi Sugar
TiPaul here with a cold and blustery vote. We had snow yesterday - yes, that white stuff was blowing everywhere and mom could not believe it! It did not stay on the ground but she took it as a warning to make an appointment to get her winter tires on the car. It has been below zero at night and freezing cold, and you can see the frost on the ground. That means winter is too close and we cannot go outside anymore. hope you are having a greyt day!

  October BOTM POST number fourteen
Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. What a sticky, icky mess we have found ourselves in. Giant Spiders everywhere, and no where to run. Then all of a sudden I found a clearing. I was eggcited to see our way of escape, that is until the air is shattered by the terrified scream of Dixie.
Dixie is very upset and frightened about what the spiders would do to Little Ange. He runs in circles around the tree where she is hanging from their thick webs! Dixie screams for someone to come to his aid," Please help me reach my wife bird and cut her loose" He tries but is too small to reach her at this point! He asks permission to get on top of Poppa Sky's head so he can have a better reach of her and then pulling off a thick branch from the Mulberry tree to reach LA with, he stands carefully on Poppa Sky's head trying to balance with his twisted toes,all the while reaching up with the long branch to his Little Angel! Little Angel reaches down breaking through the webbing she is caught in and grabs the branch that Dixie is holding out to her, suddenly losing her balance she falls from the webbing and tumbles down onto Dixie, as both birds fall sliding down Poppa Sky's red feathered back!
Dixie kisses his Little Angel. "Oh Dixie you saved my life. I'm sure those black Monster Spiders were going to eat me for dinner." Little Angel sniffs, wiping a tear from her eye. Sky checks his little fister over and seeing she and Dixie are ok, he stands tall as he can, and looks intently around to find a way to escape from this mess. It is while he is busy searching that Jenny-Lynn arrives ta his side. "SKY, I have a plan." she whispers into Sky's ear. HE nods his red head several times as he listens to her plan. After she finishes he clears his voice to get everybirds attention.
"Jenny-Lynn has a plan. She thinks if we were to form a long line and use sticks to break the webs, we can easily bust free of the spider's trap and get away from here. BonBon has a lighter." He frowns, thinking to himself, she ought not to have it in the first place, taking note to lecture his daughter later. " We can use it to burn the webs off the trees and bushes, our sticks can tear them down from the path ahead of us." Seeing no other plan, everybirdie lines up, wing to wing forming a greyt line of feathers, and slowly they work their way forward, removing webs as they go. It seems a very long time before they reach the end of the spiders home, and bid them a quick good-bye. The Spiders glare angry eyes at the retreating birds. "Just wait, they think they are free from troubles...." The Spiders hiss and laugh as they return to their damaged webs. " they'll wish they were here again!"
Jesse stops for a moment to get his bearings. He sits on a tree that had fallen to the ground. HE asks SKY to find Apache so he can use the binoculars. Sky searches but returns with Kiddo in a panic, " Apache, Sweetpepper and Pearl are gone!"

  the dryer as its too cold and damp to hang the laundry outside so he gets to roll around in the warm laundry when Mom brings it up from the cellar!Dixie thinks that helping with those quilts is going to be so much fun!Aunt Eileen is so lucky to have Sugar to help her around the house!Dixie tells Sugar that his Mom stayed home with him today and got some vacuuming done and cleaned out the hummingbird feeder she forgot to do yesterday and put that away for the winter and his dad came home from work and cleaned out the grill and put that in the sunroom for the winter,its so sad to see an empty deck and yard!But he is so happy that he can snuggle with Sugar all winter!
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 one just for Nana.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 just how blessed he is for being able to be with Sugar every day!Sugar means the world to him,and she can put a smile on his beak every time!He loves her soo sooo very much!Sleep tight and sweet dreams,Bird Of My Heart!

watches as Sugar waddles quietly down the hall and as she peers around the corner she notices Dixie waiting by the bird room door!As she waddles down the hall and into the room she throws her wings around him and holding him tightly she tells him just how very happy she is to be here with him tonight!Dixie holds Sugar ever so closely and closes his eyes with joy to have Sugar here spending time with him!The hours and the minutes seemed to drag by too slowly for him!He is so excited to have Sugar here with him now!Spending time with her and having storytime is the most important time of the day for him!
Dixie loves how Sugar got to spend some quiet time with Aunt Eileen and what could be better than chewing up lots of toys and hanging out with your Mom!And who could refuse eating rice!Yummmm!
The friends waddle on over to the platform and snuggle close together!Dixie takes the Hello Kitty Lunch Box from Sugar and upon opening it he discovers mini blueberry muffins inside!As Sugar fills two glasses with blueberry smoothie for them,he places the muffins on napkins for them!They begin nibbling on the muffins and taking sips from their smoothies as Sugar starts reading the story she brought for them tonight!
The story is called Junk Collectors School!Andy is a boy who goes to visit and old man named Jake.Jake has a great collection of junk.Andy wants to start a collection but he tells Jake he doesn't know what to start collecting!Jake shows him some of his things that he's collected,he has alarm clocks,empty toilet paper rolls,labels from bottles and lots and lots of sticks!The sticks are Jake's dogs Trash's!
Jake explains the rules of junk collecting as he takes Andy out looking for junk!They must be the same type of things he tells Andy.They see some plastic bottles and Andy doesn't think they're very interesting.Finding a lot of trash,Andy begins making a pile of it!Jake has such an awesome collection that Andy thinks of doing something different.He finds a bunch of old popsicle sticks,but Trash takes off with those for his stick collection!
Finally Andy thinks of an idea!He goes back to Jake's boathouse with a huge pile of trash and he's in there a very long time working.After a while he comes out with a raft made entirely of trash!Jake and Andy float on the raft while Jake tells Andy that he has to go to raft school to learn the rules of rafting!Jake says the first rule is to lie still and just enjoy the day!Andy never gets a junk collection of his own but he learns all about rafting!
Dixie and Sugar enjoy the muffins and the smoothies!They both can't help but to giggle at all eh junk that Jake collects!Jake tells Andy the fee for learning about junk is three empty toilet paper rolls!Jake thinks that they will be worth something in the future!
Sugar cleans up from their snack and gets Dixie's legs up on the Hello Kitty Pillow and massages his legs and he tells Sugar that laundry day is so much fun!Now his Mom has to put the wash in

  Hi Sugar
First things first! Mom had a spicy pumpkin curry with chicken, and Aunt Gin had pad Thai with chicken. Aunt Gin always asks for 0 spice level, though, while mom gets 7 or 8. I hope your mom is not too exhausted after this 8 day stretch. That's a long time without a break.
Yesterday, mom led 2 anthropology tours at the museum. Both were with college students from West Virginia University. Mom's first question to both groups was how many were hung over? WVU won their football game on Saturday, so there was some celebrating going on. She had fun with the college students, and both groups covered 3 desert cultures, Ancient Egypt, Inuits in Northern Canada from about 100 years ago, and modern Hopi Native Americans. The second group was more engaged, and seemed to have a better time with it. At the end of the second tour, they asked if mom had been a teacher, so she said yes. They hoped it wasn't at Pitt, to which mom replied that's where she got her Masters. One of the girls said she'd forgive mom for that, because everyone is entitled to a mistake now and again. Mom just laughed and laughed over that.
Today at the center, mom cleaned the RVS room and the squirrel porch. It was funny on the squirrel porch, there were 3 fox squirrels, including the one she fostered, 6 red squirrels, and about a dozen gray ones. The gray ones were in and out of each other's cages, having a ball. Mom couldn't get an accurate count! Hopefully they were all there.
I hope you are having a wonderful day, full of sunshine, love, and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

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

  Hi Sugar
It sounds like she might get another bird and leave it with her family still in Lebanon, according to what she wrote to Falco. (We read over mom's shoulder sometimes, and she doesn't know we're there.) If she does, we hope the bird will be safe there. We'll see you tonight for story time, hugs and angel kisses, Divo and Gizmo

  Hi, Sugar
When one's team loses always have the next game to look forward to. (No comment on last night's Niners game, yikes!)

Really tough to have to work so many days in a row. Think the most mom did was 9 days and didn't really like it. Not sure why but she got scheduled for 6 days this week though a couple of 'em are only half days, whew!

More e coli in the water? Yikes! Good thing you have the bottled water. Can they shower with it? What a nightmare and hopefully the source/cause of it all is discovered and rectified.

Yes, Jade attended the wedding and was perfectly behaved. Everyone wanted to hold her and skinsis was having a hard time keeping track of where her baby was. Was wearing a pretty pink dress and was the only baby there.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

It was a great show. Pops almost bought another Quaker. There was a all yellow and an all white there. But, the grouch, mom, said no. Sometimes she's no fun at all

  Hi Sugar & Pippo
that is so awful about your water contamination. you know we have all the tracking and shale drilling oil and gas companies here. they make this toxic cocktail full of radiation and poisons like cyanide and everything poisonous and inject it into the ground to fracture the earth and send their precious gas and oil to the surface. they have been turned away from water disposal areas because their poisonous water is so radioactive that they are not allowed to dump it and are suppose to dump it somewhere else. well some o them are getting around that by dumping this high toxic water directly into the drinking and sewage water and the water treatment facilities are catching it and telling everyone not to use the water. who would anyone want to when it smells and is black in color and catches on fire if you light it with a match. thats what we are living with. all so the fracking company ceos can stash all their money from the profits in off shore bank accounts so they don't even pay any taxes.

its become fairly cool here . average temps around 47 but f the sun is shining it doesn't feel so bad. in about a month this will be considered warm weather. lol

love Cori and Boo Boo

  Hi Sugar
Well, I'm glad that all of you are safe. Bottled water is the best way to go. I get that when I go on vacation. We have well water up here and I'm used to that. Mom does take a big bottle of that to use too.
Today was spent just hanging out with my parronts and chewing up new toys. It's still dark, gloomy and cold here. Dad put the patio furniture away when mom was at Parrot Palooza. That's a sign of winter for us!
Hugs
Chyna
