  Hi Sugar
That store sounds wonderful! Union wages are fair for everyone. The ability to donate vacation days is a great boon for those who need it. Where mom worked as a teacher, they worked for years to establish a sick leave bank. It worked the same, but teachers don't get vacation pay, so they could donate sick leave days to those who needed it. Mom did that regularly, too. They got 10 a year, and she hardly ever used them all, so she'd donate at the beginning of the year.
Today mom got some bad news. Quincy and Danny, the bob white quail who lived at the center, got put down yesterday. It's a shame, but both boys were close to 9 years old! In the wild, they live for a year or 2, and in captivity they can survive to 5, so we were lucky to have the boys for nearly 9 years. Mom cried, of course, but she realized a few months ago that their time was short.
In other news, mom attended a mammal handling class today, and at the end, they said to take mammals off site the volunteer first had to go with staff a time or 2. Mom asked if that was necessary for her, since she's been doing that for 13 years! They told her no, they would grandfather her in, haha.
Then she worked at the museum for the Preservation Fair today. She worked at a table that showed the effects of things like water, abrasion, light, and even using the wrong kind of pen could damage artifacts, prints, photos, etc. Did you know that Sharpies are not permanent, and can cause damage to your CDs? Mom found that out today. She writes on all the CDs she burns, and uses a sharpie. Guess that stops today.
I hope you are having a great evening. We'll talk more tomorrow. Hugs to you, Falco

  Hiya Shugs
It's awesome when somebirdie wishes me a perfect day. That makes the chances of it actually happening a whole lot better. Since there aren't any complaints about today, yesterday, or the whole past week for that matter, I guess your wish has come true! Today's bright and sunny but I hear it's downright brisk outside. And with the wind blowin' quite a bit, I'm bettin' it's way better to be hangin' inside for another day. Reba's widening the hole at the bottom of my box so I've now got a bay window to look out of instead of just a port hole. If the water starts risen, this ship's gonna sink real fast.

Good t'know that Mandy's still enjoying meal time and stayin' close to the family. I bet you keep an extra close eye on her these days, although somethin' tells me you've always kept a parrot's eye on her. Ya gotta do that with dogs. Just a minute ago Kelly flew over to the chair where Heather was sleepin'. (It's an easy chair reserves just for dogs. Humans are welcomed t'sit in it but they're warned they'll come away really hairy after loungin' there.) Anyway, Kelly creeps up to Heather's nose and is just about to give it a poke (we'll hope it wasn't going to be a pinch) when Heather opened an eye and realized the danger her nose was in. Mom swooped in and snatched up the invading Grey bird before somebody needed a bandaid. Heather's so patient with us parrots it's likely her that would've needed a patch on her nose.

Thanks too for the very big Zon hug. I'll pay ya back with a mighty-sized macaw squeeeeeeze.

  Hi Sugar Pippo
Birds That Play
All birds engage in playful behaviors, and more intelligent bird species need greater amounts of the mental stimulation that comes from play as they develop. Bird species that can seem especially playful include…Jays, crows, rooks, ravens, magpies and other corvids,Parrots, parakeets, macaws and Keas,Tits, chickadees, nuthatches and small finches,Gulls, terns and related species.
Many social and adaptable birds also play, as do young birds of nearly all species as they socialize with their siblings in the nest. The extent of play and how much play each bird species carries into maturity varies, and different birds engage in different types of play to help them develop a range of skills.
Types of Bird Play
There are many different behaviors birds engage in that could appear to be play. The most common playful actions include…
Manipulation: Using the bill or talons to drop, toss, bend, tear, rip or otherwise manipulate objects, even objects without any food value.
Investigation: Seeking out unique objects or trying a wide range of different foods, continually noting new objects and poking or prodding them.
Chasing: Following one another in short or acrobatic flights, or chasing other objects such as insects or fluttering leaves.
Taunting: Teasing or deliberately harassing one another or other creatures, such as teasing a domestic cat or instigating fights.
Balancing: Swinging, swaying or dangling on wires or weak branches, possibly releasing and reattempting different acrobatic actions.
Curiosity: Responding to pishing or other unique noises, such as being attracted by ringtones, mechanical noises or music.
Mimicry: Imitating an adult's behavior, including physical actions such as foraging or preening as well as songs and sounds.
Not all playful birds will engage in the same behaviors, but they often try different actions and activities as they are learning new skills and refining their abilities. Play may be only between birds of the same species, while some types of play, particularly chasing or taunting, may be between birds of different species.

watches as Sugar quietly waddles down the hall.As she peeks around the corner she notices Dixie waiting for her by the bird room door!She waddles into the bird room and throws her wings around him and holds him tightly telling him just how very happy she is to be here with him tonight!Dixie holds Sugar tight and hugs her and tells her how happy he is that she is here with him!He just couldn't wait to be with Sugar tonight!Sugar always brings him the warm sunshine when he's feeling so down and out!
Mom tried to get me to eat my breakfast this morning and I refused again,she took me from room to room and I still didn't want to eat.I think you're right about theres just too much going on around here and my Mom is never home anymore to spend time with us.
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 finds two cranberry orange scones inside!Sugar pours them each of them mugs filled with hot cocoa with cream as he places the scones on napkins for them!They begin nibbling on the scones and taking sips from their cocoa as Sugar begins reading the story she brought to read tonight!
This story is called "Love You Forever".There is a Mom with her new baby in the story and she is rocking him back and forth and singing a song to him."I love you forever,I like you always.As long as I'm living,my baby you will be".
The grows and is soon two years old and he gets into all sorts of trouble and even flushes his Mom's watch down the toilet!He drives her crazy but every night when he is fast asleep,she goes into his room and sings her song.Before long the boy is nine.He doesn't like baths anymore and never wants to come into the house.He still drives his mom crazy at times but she still goes into his room every night ands sings the song to him.Soon the boy is a teenager with strange friends and even stranger music.He still drives his mom crazy but she still sings him the song every night.The boy grows into a man and moves away from home.His mother can't sing him the song every night now but she still goes to visit him and when he is fast asleep,she goes into his room and sings him the song!The mother is growing older and the son comes to visit her.He holds her in his arms and says,"I love you forever,I like you always,as long as I'm alive,my mother you will be".
When the son goes home he picks up his baby daughter and rocks her back and forth,singing her the song his mother would sing to him.He will always remember his mother rocking him back and forth and singing her song to him.
Dixie and Sugar love the scones and the cocoa.They both smile at the wonderful story,and its so awesome that the song the mom made up for him will now be the song he sings for his daughter.Dixie so agrees with Sugar that it was a very sweet and loving story.He too really enjoyed it!
Sugar cleans up from their snack and gets Dixie's legs up on the Hello Kitty Pillow and massages hi

It's so nice of your mom to take Jennifer to see her dad. Hope he has a good trip to FL, too, to see the youngest daughter. He must be feeling okay if he's able to travel.
We know you will all be glad to see dad tomorrow, too. His appointment on Monday will go well, and he'll be able to visit for a little while. Does Merlin still love him best?

  Hi, Sugar
Oh, forgot about wall sockets. Think most of 'em are hidden behind furniture but mom'll mention it when she talks to skinsis as that is an easy thing to do. Good idea to have 'em covered so no water gets in while you are enjoying your shower.

Have a lot of summer stuff at mom's store. The kites are on their own small fixture. We have those Zombie soakers too. Also the regular Nerf has the Zombie version and have a marshmallow shooter that is Zombie. Think Zombie is just the latest fad.

Dixie loves that its another Pete book tonight and this book is called "Pete the Cat and the Bad Banana"!Pete just loves banana's and he has a banana on his cereal every morning and he loves banana's on his peanut butter sandwiches also.Then one day Pete gets a bad banana which is all brown and mushy and makes Pete's tummy hurt!Pete's Mom gives him some medicine for his tummy while Pete tells her he won't ever eat another banana again!But Pete's Mom makes him some banana bread but he won't eat it.She then makes him a banana cream pie but he won't touch it!She tries to give him a banana split but Pete just won't eat anything with banana's.Pete then tries a lemon,its yellow like a banana but its too sour.Then he tries a pickle as its shaped like a banana,he likes it but its still not a banana.Then he tries an orange since you peel it like a banana.Its so sweet and it makes his paws all sticky.So he eats some plums,some rice,some watermelon and a hot dog.He doesn't miss bananas that much now!
The day of the big race draws near and Pete can't decide what to eat for breakfast.He really does miss banana's and at the race his friend Greg is eating a banana so Pete asks him if he has any more and Greg says yes!Pete slowly peels it and checks it out to see if its mushy or brown.It isn't so Pete takes a tiny bite and the banana is just perfect!Its the best banana ever!Pete is so happy because he won the race.He has his favorite food back and that's so very groovy!
Dixie and Sugar love the strudel and the cocoa.They both can't help but to smile when Pete eats the banana and one bad banana shouldn't keep you from eating them!
Sugar cleans up from their snack and gets Dixie's legs up on the Hello Kitty Pillow and massages his legs and he feels so bad that Aunt Eileen has to work the whole weekend,he doesn't blame Sugar for not liking that at all,he knows how she feels being left alone all day and night.He knows the feeling as his Mom is go

Mom tried to return a router to Verizon here a few months ago, when she got a new one. She didn't want it in the house, since it was basically useless. They didn't want it, either, but she made them take it back. They said it was too old to use for anyone else, so mom told them to keep it and recycle the parts. They gave her a receipt for it, too.

  Hi Sugar & Pippo
Birds do a lot of activities that may seem smart, but how much of their behavior is instinct instead of intelligence? Ornithologists are continually studying birds and learning new information about their brains, how they think and why they behave why they do.

Deciding just how smart birds are depends on how intelligence is defined. Birds exhibit a wide range of intelligent behaviors, including good memories, extensive communication, planning for the future and remembering the past. Some birds can solve problems, and others have been observed playing – both activities that indicate more than just basic instinct. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines intelligence as:The ability to learn or understand or to deal with new or trying situations or the ability to apply knowledge to manipulate one's environment.
Do birds do this? Scientific studies indicate that yes, birds do learn, and every backyard birder knows birds are capable of adapting to new environments and conditions. Quantitative measurement of bird intelligence is difficult because birds cannot take intelligence tests or attend classes to be measured with their peers. Observations and studies of birds are revealing that birds may be far more intelligent than initially believed.
Bird Brain Structure
Brain size and structure is not an automatic gauge of intelligence, but it can be a clue. Birds may be small, but they have a proportionally large brain compared to their overall body and head sizes – in fact, bird's brains are similarly proportioned to primates. Studies of birds' brain anatomy also suggests that while the structure is different than that of mammals' brains, birds may have a higher degree of connectivity between the sections of their brains, which could indicate more intelligence and faster reasoning than previously believed.
Evidence of Bird Intelligence
The best indication of how smart birds are is direct observations of birds acting intelligently. While some observations have been made under scientifically controlled circumstances and through laboratory experiments, other observations have come from casual birders who notice their favorite birds behaving in peculiar ways, ways that seem planned and premeditated.

Mom thinks they did lose the books. She stopped at the local post office today when she left the center and showed the guy the label they sent back. He said it must have gotten eaten by the machine, and he was sorry. Mom doesn't know yet if it was the 2 Stephen King hardcovers or the 5 or so paperbacks that got torn up like that. I guess she'll have to wait until Aunt Rose gets a package, and see which one she got.
Your mom's store does all kinds of nice things. That's good. It sounds like they might not pay employees much, though, if they take collections to help with rent and such. Hope they pay over the minimum wage, nobody can live on that.
It was snowing when mom left the center today! Where is spring??? She had the bunny room, but there was only one bunny in there, so it was quick. She also cleaned the main aviary and the rolling aviary with the doves in. There were 5 doves and 13 pigeons today! She got the areas cleaned, got all the birds and the bunny fed, then went in the kitchen and did dishes for about 45 minutes, until her hands got too cold and she had to take a break. The gas guys are still up there digging, so maybe some time soon there will be gas again. The dryer turned out to be gas, so the interns are taking laundry to the shelter or to a local laundromat to clean. It's pretty much a full carload when they go, too.
Tonight is the last night of the fish fry at a local church where mom goes every Friday in Lent for dinner for her and Jeff, our neighbor. Mom told him to savor it tonight, as it will be a year before he tastes anything this good again.
I hope you are having a good day, getting spring like weather, and of course, enjoying cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

You, Pippo, and (I forgot the chick's name again) look ready for Easter.
Mom is taking dictation instead of getting housework done again. Dad returns tomorrow, so her puter will be off again. *sigh*
Mom is cleaning up the crafts she dumped in the living room. She promises to take them back to church next week.
I didn't get a chance to play with them!
Zippy
I'm in hiding. Mom took my collar off to let me preen as she was finding LOTS of feather shafts needed preening. I do not want a collar back. Mom says it WILL be back on before evening. It feels so good to preen.
I had a vet visit this week cause mom thought I was wheezing. Of course once I saw the vet, I wouldn't do it. I got examined, but no needles. YAY.

I also brought some movies and snacks for us. I'm spending the day here with you cause it's way to hot where I live.

  Hi Sugar!
I am sorry to hear about Mandy's leg. I hope it doesn't cause her too much pain. At least she is still eating well, that certainly is a good sign.

We had some spring weather hear last week, but then it went away and it is now cold again. I think it is about time for the cold weather to stop, don't you? Maybe April will bring in better weather.

Next week, "That Boy" will hear back from all the colleges he has applied to, so that will be exciting for him. When he goes to college, the house might seem a bit strange, but of course I won't mind that, I'll have to share Mama only with Dad!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I'll be sure to visit you next week to wish you a happy Easter!

Hugs and vote,

Martini (:>

  Hi Cousin Sugar
V4U today. Well, we had a few warm and sunny days. Yesterday the rain returned along with the cold weather. There are freeze warnings for the weekend. This always happens right before Easter, glad we didn't put our deck plants out yet or we would be bringing them right back in. LOL :) The wild birds have returned to our yard, hopefully we'll be seeing some nests soon. The wasps are back, too. LOL :) Have a good day. From, Mayo

Come visit me, Mayo, Dandy & Marigold.

  Hi Sugar
Yep we weathered our first big storm of the season. Moore, which is about 20 miles south got hit again ... seems like those folks would want to move cause that town always seems to get hit, even with the weak tornados. We actually watched a tornado form over our house and move north and east. It dropped baseball sized hail about 3 miles from us but that tornado we don't think ever touched the ground. Moms all ready for the tornado season to end (even though its just started). Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.
Love Rudy

Come visit me, Captain (Cappy), Rudy, Dory & Dixie.

  Hi, Sugar
Yup, the crawling is down pat. Can move across the room rather quickly. Still figuring out the standing and balancing but doubt the walking will be far off. Skinsis and hubby have rearranged their apartment but haven't installed any safety latches. Think they will just keep the grand out of the kitchen.

Lots of Easter being bought at mom's work. Lots of water and bubble stuff too since weather reached the mid 80s for us yesterday. Too warm for spring as far as we're concerned. Mom hasn't bought any candy. She usually waits until closer to the day and only a lil bit then.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Sugar !
TGIF ! Except for it's still raining . . . but hey, it's better than snow !

Mom is running out of soft food ideas for daddy - all he keeps saying is once his tooth is done he wants to go out for a big fat juicy steak ! Where does that leave me ? I prefer for the parronts to eat here at home so I can mooch off them !

Since mom's vacation starts next Thursday, so will the spring cleaning - I am preparing my list of supervisory duties . . . she can't wait ! Can't wait to clean ? I just don't get her sometimes - jeeesh ! All I'm waiting for is the extra fun !

Have a lovely Friday :) Hugs from Cookie

  Hi Sugar,
Thanks for playing Bingo with me says Pookie. Laka says yeah that was fun! :)

Thanks for offering to help with the Celebration of Angel Mario's life.

I'm waiting to get some information from King Flitzer like which Ballroom and the page number.

But I'm afraid it might have to be next week Sunday as there's not enough time this week to spread the word and set up the decorations and stuff. Well need more time, plus the Milonga is Saturday so a lot of the birdies might be hung over or too tired.

I think it would be best next Sunday that would give us more time to prepare.

What do you think?

Let me know as I'm still waiting to hear from King Flitzer too.

I thank you in advance for helping and participating with the preparations for Angel Mario's Celebration of Life party.

I think he and his flock will be happy with our celebration plans.

Here's a vote for you.

Love & hugs,

Pookie and the gang

  Heya, Miss Sugar!
Well, we are back to winter here. Tonight it is supposed to get down to 19 degrees. Can you believe that?

Mom found out this morning that her contract will end as of April 10th. So she will either look for a new job, or she will look into early retirement. Now you know what I want? Her to retire, of course. So sorry for the short c/p note, but Mom had to update her resume and send it to the company she works for tonight.

Happy Thursday!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  to Sugar for staying with them all those months and giving them the chance to share in some happy times with Mario,he just loved being with all of us and sharing in the fun!They both will always miss him so much.And they can't wait for the pain to stop hurting so much.It feels like there's a big hole in our hearts right now!
Dixie tells Sugar that his Mom and Anthony took Nana back to the surgeons for a check up and he took another x-ray and her hip is healing nicely,she has another visit with him in May.
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.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!He loves her soo sooo very much!Sleep tight and sweet dreams Bird Of My Heart!

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

watches as Sugar quietly waddles down the hall.As she peeks around the corner she notices Dixie waiting for her by the bird room door!She waddles into the bird room and throws her wings around him and holds him tightly telling him just how very happy she is to be here with him tonight!Dixie holds Sugar tight and hugs her and tells her how happy he is that she is here with him!He just couldn't wait to be with Sugar tonight,he just couldn't stand the thought of Mario's cage gone from their room!Sugar hugs Kallie,Candida,Peepers and Celine and they all feel so much better now that she's there with them.Sugar tells them that she knows Mario is safe with Gabbie and is watching over them.Their hearts are still so heavy with sadness and disbelief that Mario is truly gone.
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 finds oatmeal raisin cookies!Sugar pours them each of them mugs filled with hot cocoa with cream as he places the cookies on napkins for every birdie!They begin enjoying the cookies and taking sips from their cocoa as Sugar begins reading the story she brought for them tonight!
This story is called "Pete the Cat and the Groovy Buttons". Pete gets up in the morning and puts on his favorite shirt,its bright yellow and had four big,round,colorful,groovy buttons!As he steps out the door,one of the buttons pops off and rolls away.He doesn't cry,he says buttons come and buttons go and he still has three groovy buttons left!As Pete is riding his skateboard,another button pops off!Buttons come and buttons go but he still has two groovy buttons left!While Pete stops at the park and gets an ice cream cone and eating it another button pops off!Pete doesn't cry he just says that buttons come and buttons go and he still has one groovy button left!Pete takes off to the beach to get some surfing in when the last button pops off and rolls away!Now all of Pete's groovy buttons are gone!He looks at his shirt and realizes that he still has his belly button!He says that stuff come and stuff goes but you will always have your belly button!
The friends enjoy the snack and the silly story,it makes them smile and giggle when Pete is so happy about having a belly button!
Dixie and Sugar say goodnight to the flock and Sugar cleans up from their snack and gets Dixie's legs up on the Hello Kitty Pillow and massages his legs and Dixie tells Sugar that its so hard to be in our room without his cage there and his sweet little voice calling out.Dixie so agrees with Sugar that they all got to spend time together playing all those games and watching all the movies and enjoying all those snacks she brought for them.Those will be the memories that they will have to share of Mario and he is so happy that Sugar was there to make those cherished memories happen for them,that she was there with them to share in all the fun and laughter they had together,they are all so grateful

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

  Hey Sugar,
I need your help buddy. I've asked King Flitzer if we could use the Castle grounds to hold a Celebration of Life in Little Mario Adlers name.

He says okay so I will need some help with the decorating.

Can you and your flock give us a wing?

I'm gonna be asking more friends for help in making this a nice memorial for Mario Adler, Dixie's lil frother.

Pookie bows and says the Castle Ballroom it is!

Can you help spread the word for us?

Mom only has her phone thingy and its a little slow at times.

I'd really appreciate all the help we can get.

Mario was a sweet sweet little guy and he will be sorely missed, especially by me and my flock.

I'll gather some friends and well decorate the ballroom.

Thank you so much again for all your help and for letting us use the Castle Ballroom.

We just hafta spread the word so that no one gets left out.

Sending big birdie hugs and a vote.

We want to hold it this coming Sunday.

Love,

Pookie, Laka Aolani and Angel Sallykins

  Hey sugar
Panera is one of Pops favorite places for coffee. The bakery stuff is great, and he can gobble 2 of the bear claws in a single sitting. What a piggy.
