  Hi Sugar!
I hope that you are enjoying the weekend. I hope that they can repair Jennifer's Dad's heart valve. At least they are aware of them problem, and it can be fixed. We will keep him in our prayers. Mom helped out with banding the shorebirds again yesterday. They mostly captured and banded Ruddy Turn Stones. Soon all of the shorebirds will be heading north to their breeding grounds. Have a happy Sunday!

  Hi, Sugar
Really nothing one can do when there's an accident on the freeway. However, one would think the back up on the side without the actual cars wouldn't get that backed up! Still, good that no one appeared to be hurt but know takes awhile to clear things up and get car ins claims dealt with.

Not much going on with us. We got some yummy green beans yesterday. Weather was nicely spring again. Still need rain.

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

Hope your having a fine day today too. Sure hope that Jennifers dad has the leaky heart valve surgery and all goes well for him too. Life gets busy and can see that your mom and her sis couldnt get together much but sounds like they might this summer so that would be nice too.
Today mom was doing some cleaning down in the game room and utility room and bathroom…just the usual weekly cleaning though. Once she got that done then she went down to see skin brothers family and to give the grand her birthday card and $$. Next week is her birthday but since school will be in session yet mom wont get to see her that day so this way she had her $$ and get what she wants then. At least mom wasn’t gone most of the day like she was yesterday so that was good. When mom came home I got outside for my sunbath too!! “Goodbyes are not forever, goodbyes are not the end, They simply mean I’ll miss you until we meet again.“ Goodbye from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Well, it is definitely not sunbath weather here today. It was t-shirt weather when Mom and Dad did the Saturday grocery run at 11, and Mom thought maybe it would warm up enough. It got cooler! However I am happy to say that the sugar snap peas were the best Mom has seen in a while, and after they got back there was a Chicken Bowl run and I of course got to share my mom's. Dad watched me gobbling away, and he said I was an example of "when pigs fly!" Now what do you suppose he meant by that?

Anyway it is supposed to start warming up tomorrow, so I am eggspecting a nice sunbath after Mom gets home from the gym. Wonder if she will shower first and make me wait. I don't care if she is sweaty, but she seems to have a problem with it.

I sure hope mom can find the time when 'the right item at the right sale' shows up for that gift card!
Mom's plants should be able to stay outside for a while. Now she has to get skinbro to be willing to water them. when she carried a little over 5# potato sack to the basement, she said OW on every step--guess she can't do that yet.
Today mom and skinsis did the 3 stop grocery shopping. I did see some more apples come in--that is what I'm having for lunch these days. Zippy had eggstra out of cage time--I watched her carefully, she is NOT to get on my cage and into MY pellets.
Unfortunately skinsis helped mom find the sewing machine oil, so she will be returning to her machine to make that patriotic collar.

It's Popeye.
Yesterday mom and dad spent the entire day in the kitchen, fixing 85 deviled eggs for today's BBQ at mom's brother's house, and fixing a new chicken recipe for dinner. Mom also cleaned a few cages.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 70 and a low of 57. As we mentioned, mom and dad are going to mom's brother's house for a Memorial Day BBQ. It sounds like half the free world will be there, and dad hates crowds. This should be interesting.
Hope your day is fun.

We'll have to look for that seasoning packet. Mom likes the bottle from Trader Joe's though.
The pool opens today, and it will be 66 at noon when the doors open, so mom is thinking of going up there a little later on, maybe 1 or 2. She slept in this morning, so got a late start with feeding us and walking the dogs, so that's her excuse. The sun is beautiful today, we think it will warm up quickly. We had a frost warning last night, but mom didn't cover anything and it was okay, there was no frost here.
I hope you are enjoying the start of the long weekend, and planning some fun in the sun. Get lots of cuddles and scritches, too. Hugs, Falco

Yep, he's a smart cookie for choosing a place where he can get a quality education and not be in debt when he graduates. Mom agrees with the president, higher education should be free to those who want it. Hope Jennifer enjoys her time with dad, and doesn't stress too much about the surgery.

  Hi Sugar,
We had a very loud booming thunder last night. One was so loud that it scared dad a little, he got up and looked outside thinking something must have happened but mom told him that it was just thunder. We did get some rain but not much. Mom didn't want rain to mess up our clean windows.

Yesterday, the AC guy had to come out as it was not working. AC is so needed here in the summertime when it hits 100 outside. The coils had iced up and all he had to do was turn on the heat for a while to melt it and then it started working like a charm. It seems that the air filter that dad changed was too dirty even though it didn't look like it was so now the parronts are going to make sure to change it every 6 months from now on. Don't want that to keep happening...

The trailer is almost put together, all that remains is to do the wiring. After that is done then the parronts will go down to the lumber store and get two 4x8 pieces of plywood to make the floor for mom to drive up on. Very close now!

Sorry to hear about Jennifer's dad and will keep him in our thoughts and prayers.

Blueberry muffins are yummy or at least that is what the other birdies say...I won't eat anything like that...guess I don't know what I am missing.

  Hi, Sugar
Sounds like it was a good time to redo the pool before the summer sets in. Good to have it all sealed and everything in working order so it is safe.

There is always a worry when someone has surgery no matter how often the procedure has been done or the success rate of the hospital/docs that are doing it. The health of the patient is a factor but we certainly hope it is all routine and goes well.

That is good when a place is busy to have a lot of cashiers. It is always irksome to be at the grocery when the line is down the aisles and only two cashiers are there. Mom's store strives to not have anyone waiting and calls for help quickly.

The grand was over yesterday. Still not quite walking but standing well and eating a lot!

Wow...you would think that they would have started doing that pool a big earlier. Most pools open up on Memorial Day.
We will keep Jennifer's dad in our prayers that he will be ok.
My parronts love Costo! When we lived in CT Costco was 5 minutes down the road. Here in NC Costco is about 45 minutes from us.

Maybe you'll get to see the pool filling up today ? Tell Jennifer we're thinking of her and her dad - that's exactly the operation my g'pa had 2 summers ago. It is pretty common and g'pa was only in the hospital for 4 days (and he was 82 at the time !)

Well, my awesome talons are gone ! Be proud though - I gave the groomer a really hard time trying to escape the whole ordeal - she was so impressed by my efforts, she gave me a nutriberrie ! ! Then when we got home I pouted and that got me cuddles, skritches and another nutriberrie ! ! !

It's finally supposed to warm up today some. Mom and dad are heading out to the flea market this morning - mom loves to poke around and dad loves junk food ! Hope you have a good day :) love to all - Cookie

  Hi Sugar & Pippo & Mei Mei
there is always risk involved with any surgery but like you said this surgery has become very common so everything should be fine. our g-ma had a new valve put in at 88 years old. because of extensive use of prednisone her bones were very thin and fragile and when they opened her up the bones splintered andthey couldn't stop the bleeding so g-ma layed in the intensive care for 4 days with her chest cracked open while they drained her chest cavity of blood. mom didn't even recognize her because her face was so swollen g-ma looked just like a frog and mom told the nurses that wasn't her mother. anyway g-ma pulled through and after 2 weeks in the intensive care they shipper her to a rehab where she got all better before going home. g-ma is 93 now.

  Heya, Miss Sugar!
Open heart surgery is a challenge for both the patient and the family members. Prayers are coming their way. Grandpa had aortic stenosis, and had to have his aortic valve replaced. He had a couple bypasses, too. He got a cow valve--nice and big, and no drugs like Coumadin to take. Grandpa did good after ward, but then his one lung filled with fluid and he had to have surgery for that. The biggest thing is to make sure that he exercises and using his breathing apparatus. It will make him weak afterward, and it will take time get back the strength. The surgery is common, but to the person and the family who is going thru it, it can be scary. Even for Mom and she knew what to expect. So just be there for Jennifer.

We had that lake effect wind so we only got to 60, and it was a chilly one. Mom did her bedroom today--moved all the furniture, vacuumed and dusted. She did the mattress spin thing and got the summer quilt out. I hollered like crazy cuz she was using that sucking machine. She still has to do the patio door windows in there, and the ones in the kitchen and dining room and the patio door in the living room, but that will come when rain is not in the forecast so much.

Enjoy the time with Mom! I sure am! And tomorrow is my 25th Birdthday with Mom. She says it is our Silver Anniversary, too! I sure am glad she came in the store that day so I could chose her for my Mom!

My mom had the day off and spent the whole day at home we worked on laundry and a few dishes then she cleaned my cage.Came close to taking a nap but she got up before she fell asleep.
Think the pool is getting ready to open here not sure if it's this weekend or another week or so. Have a good night.

I hope your having a great day today. Yes am sure once the weather warms up every one will be wanting to go in the pool so hope they soon get it done and filled with water too!
The good thing is mom got to meet up with her sister finally today. Yep this is the first time they were able to get together since moms sister got back about 2 weeks ago for the summer from Arizona. Looks like this might be the last summer they will be here for the whole summer so that is the sad part if they don’t get to see each other every summer like they have the last 15 years. The sad part was mom was gone for the day and dad was in and out but you know how dads are…sure not like moms so I was very happy when mom got back home.

  Hi Sugar
I lost Mom to the gym as usual this morning, but she did come home promptly and sit with me even before her shower. Of course, that was because the heater in my room is on the same circuit as the bathroom....she needed to make sure I was warm enough that she could turn mine off first. (Can't run both heaters at the same time without blowing the circuit.) She claims it was because she couldn't wait to see me, but I am not buying it.

I did not get a sunbath today, since once again the temps are in the mid 60s. However this is a three day weekend, which although it means I have to put up with Dad being here for an extra day I do have to admit he is handy for opening the screen door when we come in from a sunbath, and it is supposed to warm up tomorrow or Sunday at the latest. So I guess I will let him stick around.

  Hi Sugar
Mom loves General Tso's chicken. Does your mom make her own sauce? If so, maybe she can email mom the recipe. Mom buys it at Trader Joe's in small bottles.
Mom has a booboo on her leg that she didn't even know happened. Yesterday when she left the museum, the car door slammed into her shin (because she's clumsy sometimes) and it hurt, but mom didn't think anything of it. Last night when she was getting ready for bed, she saw that she had bled on her khaki pants! There was a huge wound on her leg as well. It doesn't hurt, but it will take awhile to heal.
Today mom worked in the avian nursery, and she had the 20 minute timer as well. Every 20 minutes she had to feed the smallest babies in the incubator, and of course, clean their nests and paper underneath, too, because what's going in one end seems to push out what's at the other end. She managed, between 20 and 45 minute feedings, to clean only 6 other cages. The avian nursery is pretty full right now, with robins, sparrows, starlings, mourning doves, pigeons, a cedar waxwing, a woodpecker, a little screech owl, crows, etc. The 6b ducklings in one of the cages got a fake mom today. Mom found the decoys they use for moms, and popped one in there on the heating pad. The babies will gather round it for comfort once it heats up a little.
After the center, she went shopping for fruits and veggies for us. Now she's home, and after doing our blogs, will plant the strawberry, gooseberry, and peppers that our neighbor left for us. We are under a frost advisory for tonight, so mom will have to look for some sheets for the tender stuff she is planting today. Everything else should be okay.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Sugar, Mei Mei and Pippo
Happy, healthy Friday to everybirdie. It's looking to be a great long-weekend for all my BC friends in the US. I am very delighted by the responses you are sharing with us. I hope everybirdie takes the time to read them too. There is a lot to consider when it comes to sharing your home with a Companion Parrot. When my Momma Deb started with birds, there was so little written about them it was a hit or miss situation when it came to care, housing and health. Today, with the internet at our finger tips, and countless books on various species, self-educating is a joyous and necessary component to be availed by all. We never know it all, and learning is a life time effort. Everyday with a Companion Parrot offers opportunities to observe or learn something new and valuable.
Many of us wish to adopt a new fid into our homes, hearts and flocks but there are so many considerations beyond species to work through. I must say this topic was brought to me by our dear friend Eva Kline of the famed K K Koral. It is something we need to look at when thinking of the addition of a brand new flock member in an established flock. That is the dreaded "quarantine" .
It would be the very rare home that can provide us with "IDEAL" conditions to quarantine an incoming bird. So with this knowledge what can we do? and what is not ok to do? To correctly quarantine a new Parrot you need a room, that is supplied with it's own source of air, preferably filtered intake and exhaust. Many Avian diseases are air-borne. Simply separating a new Parrot from the flock within the same household does not prevent contamination and disease spread through the air, air vents and whenever the door is opened to care for the new comer. The false belief that changing your clothing, shoes etc after caring for the new comer WILL NOT prevent the spread of disease.
By definition all quarantine of Avians is to be done in a building separate from ALL other birds in a flock. It must have it's own air filtration system to prevent spread of airborne disease particles and be tended by someone who does not come into contact with other Parrots during the quarantine period. Separation of the flock and new comer by floors within the same home is not considered fully quarantined. Although changing clothes, shoes and showering before entering and after being in contact with the new fid will work greatly to help stop cross infection.
The recommended method of quarantine suggests that all incoming new flock members have TWO sets of blood testing done at intervals advised by your Veterinarian to screen for Avian diseases. However, unless the Parrot is shedding a virus, a false negative can occur.
NOW FOR TODAY'S QUESTION: what other suggestion do you have for bringing home that new flock member?

Come visit me, SKY, Little Angel, jesse & SWEETIE, Let's talk Parrot for May's BOTM.
