  Hi Sugar
The boys say hi back! I think mom should tell Merlin to leave her alone while she is sleeping, don't you?
Today mom went to the eye doc, who says all is well. She's going back in 3 weeks for the final follow up and the refraction exam for glasses, YAY! After the eye doc, she went to the center to do her shift at reception again. Maybe next week she'll start with the animals, but she felt it best to do another day at the desk today.
After the center, she went to the bank, then to the Giant Eagle pharmacy to pick up her meds, and finally to the pool for a couple of hours. Now we will have her for the rest of the day, hooray! She will be on the phone looking for a groomer for Polly for part of the time, but the rest of the time, she's ours.
I hope you are having a great day, good weather, and lots of cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Day 22- Crossing the rushing Red River
Howdy pardners, Chuey here with a brief update on our progress on the Cattle Trail.
With Jenny-Lynn's safe return from checkin' out the rustlers I was able to have some peace of mind. We have other pressing matters at hand. We'd no doubt deal with them rustlers mighty soon. Sky, Jenny-Lynn, Jedi, Ms BB and Pearl at point we began to haze the herd towards the river. The roar of the water fillin' our ears long before we arrived outside Doan. Sugar, Boo Boo, Snowflake, Chipper, and Cori helped to round up the cows with young calves at their feet. Ropin' the calves and tying 'em over their saddles for safety. The others took to yowlin' and Yippin' to stir the herd to movin'. Cattle by nature are leery of fast moving water, and this River was no different. They hesitated as they were pushed by those behind them down the red rocky banks into the cold water.
Jenny usin' her horse, Get Away, bumped the lead steer to get him committed to the swim, the others bulked as they entered the river, bawling and tryin' their darnedest to turn back. With a swat on the butt the lead cow plundered into the water, eyes wide with fear, but she continued to move, swimming as she reached the middle of the nearly mile wide crossing.
"Move' em long, gitt-along, cow-bosssssss, Git-ip, move 'em up." Sky yellsa t the frightened cattle, forcing them to swim to reach the other side safely. " JL, Rope that red before she falls" Jenny-Lynn ropes her in one try, pulling the tired heifer to safety closer to the bank.
"Calf down" Snowflake yells to Jedi who plunges his horse along side the calf being tugged away with the current. " Got 'er" he yells out, pulling the calf beside his horse and out of the river's rushing waters.
"Bring 'um up" Sky yells as the herd continues to file into the river on the Doan banks. " BB, black steer" he yells over the river's roar. BB swings Sun Dancer to the right and ropes a steer who has fallen before he got trampled by those behind him. The horses whinny loudly out of fear and tension as their riders push the herd forward. "Susan, white heifer to your left" A yearling heifer flails terrified in the strong current, pulled down stream. Susan races Thorin down the banks to cut off the drownin' heifer, roping her over the horns she backs her horse up pulling the bawling heifer to the opposite bank.
" YAAAAW!!! Get-a-long" Spot yells to the now hesitant cattle. He uses his horse to push them to the bank and Silver drives them on into the water.
Dixie, Cookie, Hulk and Cydney swim their mounts across the river just south of the herd, to help pull out stranded cattle to safety.
Suddenly a bawl cuts the air as a red checked bull enters the river, tryin' to turn back he bumps those behind him causing them to split and run away from the river. Celine and Polly race after him, with Zippy Rio and Pookie cutting in front of the herd following at his heels. We had a stampede headin' our way if they can't turn'em back to the water.

  Hi Cousin Sugar
V4U today. That's neat how your mom has a holly that is a few years old already, and that it's also a rescue from the clearance pile. We have holly bushes in our yard. They do well in the freezing cold and in the intense heat. They don't like too much water though, so tell your mom to cut back on the water and keep the soil dry between watering, and that might help her holly. Thanks again to your mom for making those awesome pictures for me. They are so cute. :) Wishing you a nice weekend. From, Mayo

  Hi Sugar,
Yes, you did a good job finding award pictures. But I'm sure Maxie would have told you what he uses and you wouldn't have had to search to find new ones. But these are nice too! Soon you will have more making the 10K. I was trying myself but don't know if I will make it before BC closes. If not, that's okay. I enjoyed BC while they were on.

Have a great weekend. Leaving a vote for you.

  Heya, Miss Sugar!
Well, we had some decent rain here today. Mom wasn't able to get out to walk much, either. She did have a couple meetings in different buildings but she did not make it to the lake. Maybe tomorrow. Supposed to be hot and humid--and I am sending some of it to Miss Chyna, cuz she really would like some nice hot weather. We are supposed to be pretty toasty thru the weekend. I am not complaining!

This morning when got me up, we went to the window like we always do, to look out at the cars and trucks on the expressway. Well, they are doing all kinds of work on the electrical towers. There was this cherry picker out there, and it was raised up sky high! Scared the heck out of me. Mom said that they must have to do that to get any moisture off the whole thing. I sure was having none of it!! Had to go on my playgym, cuz Mom knew I hated seeing that thing!

Hope you had a great day, and thanks for stopping by! Wing hugs!

  Hi Woogs, bunches of hugs & kisses from Jen for taking a few days off the BC, my slow old dad needs some time to get caught up on certain things, please be patient with us, it is only temporary! Please do not forget us, or forsake us, we'll be back with bells on, count on that! We have got like 5 days in a row of low 90's, and all the while scattered thunder showers are predicted ( scattered means that every home will receive 3 or 4 drops of rain), while our grass is brown and brittle! Aunt Denise is getting our share, and probably dancing in her yard naked, the witch, witches can do that ya know, LOL! Have a great day my dear friend, and give my love to our very dear aunt Auda Eileen Maroe Carey, and all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

  Hi Cousin Sugar
V4U today. What a neat surprise! :) Thank you so much for making the 3 pictures of me for the 10 Grand Hall of Fame Club. They are just awesome! :) There's nothing new here. Mom's just been so busy as always. There are now 4 tropical hibiscus on our deck and 1 hardy hibiscus planted in the yard. LOL :) They were all on clearance and needed a good home so home they came! LOL :) One of the hibiscus is in especially poor condition so hopefully it will bounce back after some TLC. It's been so hot and humid here, the mosquitoes are as big as birds. Not really, but you know what I mean. LOL :) Thanks again for the pictures. It was so nice of you to take the time to do that, they made my day. Have a good day, Sugar. From, Mayo

I hope mom can get her needed rest! I hope Mandy and Merlin let her get some sleep, I know you will be a quiet, good bird, heehee.
Not much new here, mom did get to the pool yesterday and it turned into a gorgeous day by noon. Today looks good, too. Later she will go to dinner with her sister, then come home and clean cages for us. Tomorrow morning is her second follow up appointment with the eye doc, then back to the center for her shift.
Mom got an email from SamIAm's mom, Aunt Robin. Her lupus and rheumatoid arthritis have both flared up at once, not long after she underwent oral surgery. She had to quit taking one of her drugs for the surgery, and is now able to take it again, but it has to build up in her system to work. Anyway she's at home with a fever, thinking about BC and how much she misses everyone. Sam misses his birdie friends, too. We hope to see them back soon, but in the meantime, please keep Aunt Robin in your prayers.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of sunshine and scritchies. Hugs, Falco

So nice to hear you will be doing the 10K rewards. I just know you will give it 110%.

Well, after almost TWO YEARS of hearing Pops say, "Good morning, Jetta", I finally got around to saying good morning back to him. I know a lot of words, and talk my head off, but for some reason, I just didn't like the sound of that, so it took me awhile to say it. Now he's happy.

1. A type of "immortal" jellyfish is capable of cheating death indefinitely.

  Hi Cuz!
It's me! A voice from the past! Hehehe! Gosh, we've had no internet most of the summer and no phone service either. I have been sooooo sad cos i couldn't write you! I have missed you so much. I've been wanting to tell you for three whole weeks that the Christmas stuff is in the stores here already!
So, did you get corn bread to eat with your mash? That all sounds so good to me. I had some strawberry slices tonite for dinner with the usual stuff. Yummy!
Well, we have had a quiet summer with lots of mom time with no internet, etc. it has been a hot August with some storms late in the day. It thunders and all and i get eggscited and shake my tail but it doesn't rain! Aw shucks! I have been enjoying my outside time and of course my comforter time too. I've had a few bad seizures but fortunately mom was here to hold me and give me scritches. Since i fall in my cage to the bottom, mom had dad build a false bottom and put it right below my perches and food bowls so when i fall, i only fall about two inches and land on the platform which is padded with towels and paper! I don't know what took mom so long to think this up. I was surprised the first time i fell and it took me a few minutes to figure out how to get up on my rope perches again but i did it all by myself!
Well, that is my news. This is the last week that the tourists are at the beach. The schools start here next Monday so it will be quieter and no people here except on weekends. The rest of Mexico went back to school this past Monday but becos of the tourists and all, the governor here gets an extra week of vacation for the economy!
What have you been up to? Any good rubber ducks to chew up? We are all good but sure have missed BC.

Sorry I have been off the blogs for a while...we have been trying to take care of dad and some of his problems and you know how mom gets...between us fids and him, like 2 full time jobs! WHat a beautiful tribute to Tooth! Such a sweet little soul! I got into trouble the other day. I jumped on mom's head twice while she was vacuumiing around Graceland and she got frustrated with me and put me in the crate she normally puts Doo in when she does his condo. You know, Charlie and Baldrick were outside and they both came over to the crate looking for a fight! Mom had to take me out of the crate and put me back in my cage. What is up with those 2 conures anyway? Yum, Snickers minis--love em. Mom only lets me eat the center. Doo tries to nick a whole one out of the candy dish and run down the couch with it. Mom always catches him. hahahahh! Love and winghugs, Elvis

Howdy Pardners; It's a fine day to be settin' back relaxin' in Doan. Now, I must be tellin' ya, that some of these cow wranglin' birdies are inside Doan's Store at the Saloon but all in all it's a mighty good day. The chuckwagon is being restocked as I enjoy restin my vent right here in front of the Doan General Store. Henceforth it's a mighty long trail to the next town along the line. I wanta take today to tell you all a bit about the duties and requirements for each position on this cattle drive.
Trail Boss--must be very experienced, a quick thinker, cool-headed, co-operative and have leadership skills. Carries full responsibility for the entire group-cowbirds, cows, horses. Locates water, grass with the help of scouts, knows how to track different animals, keeps the peace between cowbirdies, and handles all money. Wages in 1880--$90.00 month
Point Bird--High level of experienced, most honored position on the drive, determines direction of the cattle-must be reliable, work in groups, and works in twos keeping lead steer/cow going the correct direction. Wages in 1880--$30-40 month
Swing or Out riders--must have some experience, must be knowledgeable about cattle and using horses to keep them in line on the trail. Position third ways back from the head of herd Wages in 1880 $30-40 month
Flank Riders--must have some experience on trail drives, must know how to ride a horse, Cuts in cattle that stray,rides two-thirds way back from the front of the herd. Wages in 1880 $30-40 month
Drag Riders--Usually an entry-level position--willing to work hard, endure dust & dirt kicked up by the herd, rides at the back of the herd to keep older, calves and cows etc up to herd. Wages in 1880 $30-40 month
Horse Wrangler--Entry-level job, work hard and learn, drives the remuda of horses before the chuckwagon and ahead of the cattle, rounds up extra horses, herds them into a rope corral several times daily, keeps the horses together, eating grass until change over time for cowbirds, makes sure ridden horses get extra feed-corn and grass, keeps saddle horses grouped together, helps the cook gather wood, harness the chuck wagon team. Wages in 1880 $20-30 month
No matter what position a cow bird has, it entails hard work, sweat, and determination and a drive to get the job done. Tomorrow we start our crossin' of the Red River, a dangerous and difficult task for both herd and riders. I think I'll be moseyin' along to the Saloon myself to wet-my-beak.

  Hi Sugar
We saw Halloween candy out already, too, but mom refuses to buy it so fast, because she knows she'll eat it. She also likes the Reese's cups.
Today is dark and gloomy, and it was pouring rain when mom walked the girls this morning. Now it seems to be rain free, but who knows how long that will last? So, it must mean it's a laundry catch up day for us here. So many things to wash, and all those trips up and down the stairs will provide good exercise for mom today. We are keeping Kiddo's mom and dad in our prayers, as well as Sweetpepper's Grandpa. We hope all goes well for each of them and they all heal successfully.
I hope you are having a good day today and getting lots of sunshine and scritchies. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Sugar
It's Popeye.
Mom didn't work at the police station yesterday. Instead, mom and dad went to free movie day. They saw Maleficent. It's the story of Sleeping Beauty for grownups. They said it was good. Then they stopped at Sam's Club for gas in the car and then went to the police station for the open house meeting. After the meeting dad went into Albertson's for stuff to fix dinner. They had tostadas with chips and salsa.
Today hasn't been planned out yet but it will be partly cloudy with a high of 85 and a low of 63.
Hope your day is fun.

  HeyOOH Sugar!!
I'm flying by to have a look at your pretty beak and maybe give you a big ol' hug if you'll take one from a stranger. (((HUG)))

Soooo, how are you? I'm looking at your pictures and seeing Miss Maddie and going "Oh my STARS! — that baby's all grown up!! Look at her showing you the pictures in a storybook. How sweet. Ah man, that just makes my heart feel all bubbly with happiness. Lucky her, getting to hang out with you. She'll know all about how awesome parrots are because she's growing up in the company of a really cool one.

Funny you should mention my enjoying the last days of summer because guess what? In the next five days, we're actually going to have some summer-like weather!! Yup, stuff in the 90s. Haven't had that since early April when some freak summer temps showed up. Mom was thinking it was going to be the most miserable summer ever but it's turned out to be the absolute nicest one she can ever remember since living in IL. Last year about baked us to death but this one's been so nice, there were actually days I had to wait to go outside because it was almost too cool still at 1:00! Unheard of for a Prairie state. It hasn't rained a lot in the last month or so which is typical but yesterday and again today, right now in fact, it's rained bucketfuls so we're good to go for the rest of the season. Well, at least through the heat wave that's coming.

I wonder how things are with you and your family. What's your favorite story book right now? And are you still as crazy about apples as you've always been? I remain stubborn about eating fruit, even if that's what my relatives in the jungle are munchin' on. I like veggie loaf better!

I'm going to hush up now and let you get back to business. Thanks so much for thinking about me and stopping by my page. You're the bestest, Sugar.

Love and hugs from this guy– 

Come visit me, Alfie.

  Hi Sugar
That's interesting about sunglasses. Mom says they never wore them as kids, but today a lot of kids have them on at the pool and such. Her grand nieces and nephews sometimes wear them, too.
Mom likes those history things, too. English monarchy is a fun subject, but you're right, they didn't learn from each other. See you tonight for a story. Hugs and angel kisses, Divo and Gizmo

  Hi my YNA friend, some Wednesday love for you-Jen
We appear to be in for more hot humid weather, but we can't complain, so far the Summer has been very mild and good to us! I can assure you that in a month or two, it will become very cold again, not looking forward to that! This is visiting VA Nurse day, but the exam don't take very long, and dad has been doing well lately, we'll see! Have a great day dear friend, and give my love to our dear price fixer Ms Auda, and all in your happy hump day home, see ya tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny, Angel Christy, & our family

  Hi, Sugar
How awesome for you to take over the 10K HOF for Maxie. Think a while back she wondered if someone else would be able to take over. We'll go check it out.

Since mom isn't part of the stock crew not sure if Halloween stuff has come in yet or not. It'll be soon though as more summer stuff has gone to clearance prices. Hmmm, Snickers is most popular at your mom's store? Our mom read that despite it having peanuts it is one of the worse to eat. The family also loves the Reece's PB cups but none like Tootie rolls.

Are those golf carts electric? Maybe it can be fixed.

Good weather here as temps dropped to a lil under 80. Still sunny and breezy.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  That's pretty silly about the golf cart !
Mom and dad had a great time at the fair yesterday ! Besides seeing all the crafts and animals and walking around the midway, they saw PIG RACES !! Guess who won ? Brittany Spareribs ! har har har ! And they ate enough to last the rest of the week ! I told you daddy loves his junkfood !

Now today, mom is unpacking boxes in her classroom - she got the furniture set on Monday. Then all that's left is the bulletin boards which she can work on at home - they're easy enough to hang - it's the ideas that are tough to come up with . . .

Happy humpday ! love Cookie

Come visit me, Cookie and Petunia - ready to win !, BC Library Now Open & Fly with the angels my Sally.

  Hi Sugar Sweetie
So the 10K club you are handling for now. I know that will keep your sweet mom Aunt Eileen busy. My toe is getting better each day and I am back to my usual behavior and following Miss Puffin all around. My mom loves those mini snickers bars and the peanut butter cups to but she won't give me any. I got some Lima beans in my dish this morning but so far I have not tried them but I did eat a grape. So there is a golf cart that broke down. Hopefully they will get it fixed. It is very hot and humid here today with lot of sunshine. Hope you and mom have a great day.
