  Hi Sugar
The boys say hi and thanks! Thanks also for the info about the lilac breasted roller, it's a gorgeous bird!
Mom talked to about 50 people yesterday about the pterosaurs hanging from the overlook. She spelled it wrong yesterday, for anyone looking them up: It's cycnoramphus, with a y not an i. They have weird mouths, tiny teeth only in the front. There were lots of people using the elevator and the stairs on the overlook, just not that many stopping to look at what mom had to show. She even had a cast of a pterodactyl for folks to touch.
After the museum, mom went to Barnes and Noble to use the coupons she had. As usual, it didn't take her long to find things to read.
Today at the center mom had the avian nursery to do. There are some nestlings there who had to eat every 30 minutes, and she had the timer for them, too. The nestlings were a little fuzzy finch, a Carolina wren, and a baby robin. There were also several mallards in there, 10, at least, in 2 cages with decoy moms and mirrors. There was a baby goose with a decoy mom in its cage, too. There were the usual mourning doves and pigeons, as well as an eastern screech owl, a cardinal, and a pileated woodpecker. Mom also set up a cage for a grey catbird, but didn't see it, as it was still in the treatment room.
She was a few minutes late getting out today; that was a lot of birds, with the baby feedings thrown in.
Now, mom is home with us, hoping to finish a book today, and maybe get some laundry going. Tomorrow I have a follow up appointment with my vet, and she is seeing me before rush hour starts, YAY! She's going to see more than 2 feathers growing in, too. I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Flitzer, readying for Dad's trip
Happy Monday. Dad is packing and running around the house setting up "bird-care"stations.
He's nervous about leaving me w Aunt Kathy - they were both miserable to each other last time.
Dad will be gone 5 days, and is praying we all survive the duration.
--
Dad is visiting his Mom in Kentucky - and he'll be flying. He hates travel, hates flying, and hates being away from home.

Hoping all goes well.

  Hi sweet derby hat Zon lady-from Jen & Christy
...yesterday was very uneventful until aunt Tanya Stark called, she is always so interesting to chat with! She discussed Elvis, Doo, and things regarding her other parrots! What a great flock! We hope things are going well with McKenzie's on going training! Is our dear aunt Auda getting enough rest, we worry about her! Once again dad has a doctor appointment at our VA medical clinic, that just cuts the heart out of our day! He will be waiting around a lot to be called into the various specialty rooms, certainly not much fun, but a necessary evil, none the less! We are having another gloomy overcast day with more rain coming, when will it ever end! Our day will be filled with boring stuff, but aunt Denise always entertains us, she is so sweet! Have a great Monday dear BC friends, and give our love to sweet aunt Eileen and all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Monday love from Jenny, Ms LaLo, Angel Christy, & our crippled daddy

  Hi, Sugar
There's another regular ad that started yesterday but majority of things are not available at the baby store so didn't take long for mom to get the ad up. She was able to get more of the apparel clearance labeled and time to check for non clearance things mixed on the clearance rack so moved those so no confusion on prices.

Another warm day here yesterday so dad had the a/c on. Hopefully today temps will go down a tad but at least the breeze is cool.

Think voting for Laka this month is wonderful idea so she can get that badge. No need for her to campaign again but good to remind birds to leave her votes. We shall do so silently so her mom won't have to answer eggstra blogs when she isn't feeling well.

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

  Hi My Loving Sweet Sugar
My parronts used to shut the alarm off before they got the second one and go back to sleep and you should've seem my Mom scramble to pack my dad's lunch box and get the coffee maker going and his instant breakfast on the table ready to drink.After several more times of sleeping through the alarm or shutting it off,that's when they decided to get the second alarm,the second one set on that awful buzzer noise and set to go off fifteen minutes after the first one that wakes them up with music.Poor Aunt Eileen being so tired,she really needs to get some good uninterrupted sleep and my Mom sure can understand how hard it is to concentrate on anything when you feel like that!McKenzie is so funny trying to chew on the computer chair like that,and then to go and bug Merlin she's really asking for trouble!hahahaha!It looks like Merlin didn't appreciate being locked in the bedroom by banging on the door and howling!I guess he didn't want to be put back in the bedroom so he was being good sleeping by the window!
Anthony backed out of getting the apartment next door to Shiloh.He went to meet the landlord this morning and somehow changed his mind.He found two other apartments in Mashpee both studio apts that include everything,one for $250.00 a month and the other for $600.00 a month and that one takes pets,and even has a nice large yard for them.Anthony has an appointment to see the $250.00 apt after work tomorrow.Mom is hoping that he gets it.He's running out of time at the house he's in now,less than two weeks to get out of there.
That really sounds so awesome that Jennifer is listening to a book being read to her.I don't think my Mom could do that either!
My Mom and Shiloh did laundry together and Mom had hoped to hang her sheets out on the line but it was raining here by the time the wash was done so everything had to go in the dryer.Then Mom made tuna noodle casserole for dinner and Mom made a broccoli,onion and diced tomato casserole with Parmesan cheese for lunch.Dad had some soup and because they all ate so late no one was interested in eating dinner,but later my dad had some.Mom clipped Peepers flight feathers for Shiloh and then Shiloh went home around 6pm and Mom went and made the bed with my dad and Mom got things ready for dad to go to work tomorrow.Mom is hoping that Anthony will like this apt tomorrow and he gets to move in the price is right for him!
Here I come my sweet precious Sugar to read our story together!I've been waiting all day for this moment in time so I can perch close to you and have our story,and spend time with you!You are the reason for me to be and I love you more than you can imagine!Angel wing hugs and soft angel kisses sent on the wings of a summer breeze!Loving you always and forever and ever,Gabbie

Dixie and Sugar can't stop laughing over the spider and the snake.How could Butterfly think they were Monkey's mom!Candida says the Macaw was bright red with a beak so she really should have know that wasn't his mom!The friends figure that since Butterfly's babies didn't like like her she didn't realize that Little Monkey would look just like his mom!

  Hi Sugar!!
I am wondering if you are having the same bad weather that we are? We have been having lots of rain and cold weather, and it looks like more of the same for the week. Mom and Dad went birding yesterday and they saw some warblers that they never saw before. One of them is called a Prairie, warbler and mom got a nice picture of a black and white warble. Spring has arrived and all of the migratory birds will soon follow!! We already have 2 hummingbirds using our feeders. :-) Have a Happy Monday!Your friend,

  Hey Sugar,
Yes I agree that BooBoos idea is great but I don't think mom is up to that much campaigning again. :(

She's still on the horse pills of antibiotics twice a day. Now her organs are hurting from all that coughing. :(. She has ta hold her tummy when coughing as she might break a gut. So to speak.

Today mom is doing more resting and sleeping as she has ta go back to work in Monday.

Hope you have a nice sunny day!

Here's a vote for you.

Laka

Dad finally worked on the front lawn and at least part of it looks better. He's going to try to get more done today. Not sure how much because their friends from Colorado will be here today. Not sure how much we'll be on the BC this next week. It depends on how busy mom and dad are with their friends.
Mom made homemade gumbo last night. Sure did smell good but dad said we couldn't have any because it was too spicy for us. Hey, we like spicy!

That was a great idea on your mom's part. Follow the truck that you know will get you to the freeway. Mom was lost once coming home from her friend's cabin in upstate NY. She got into PA, and somehow was on the wrong road. Her solution was to follow any roads that said south or west, since she was heading southwest to get back. She eventually found the turnpike and got back safely. Of course, this happened long before the garmin was invented.
Hope you are having a great day. Hugs, Willie and Peppino

  Hi Sugar
I love the bird on the calendar page, even though I can't identify it. It's gorgeous!
Did your mom see any of the characters in the opera? Mom loved the costumes for Nick Shadow and Baba the bearded lady. Mother Goose was a hoot, too!
Mom went with her niece to see the opera last night. The scenery was really cute, it looked very 2 dimensional, and was mostly drawn onto a white background, so looked very childlike and unsophisticated. The music was typical Stravinsky, mom liked it a lot. In fact, she enjoyed the music more than the singing, because the music was playful in spots. The cast was very well matched vocally, and the chorus did a bang up job! For an opera written in 1951, it was pretty good. Mom doesn't usually like contemporary works like that. They had dinner at Nicky's Thai Kitchen before the performance, too.
Today mom has to do a 3 hour spotlight at the new pterosaurs in Dinosaur hall. They are cicnorhamphus, and they are hanging above the hall. Mom thinks she'll be on the second floor balcony, so people can see them better. They are pretty cool pterosaurs, have beaks that indicate they were filter feeders, something like flamingos.
I think after the museum, mom will head to Barnes and Noble, then come home. I hope you are having a good day there. It's gloomy here, and raining off and on. Get lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

  Hi, Sugar
Let's hope your mom doesn't catch that cold. Good to have the cold meds so the skinsibs can be feel better.

Mom got all missing apparel signs up. Later found a sign that wasn't taken down but adjust the price at the register for the customer. Today's ad is mainly for toys but there will be a few for the baby store too so won't take mom long.

That is good your mom will be able to give the new workers some assistance and training so they know how to do stuff. There's a new guy at mom's work who is learning the BOH things. Sure need another for the stock crew.

Hello dear friends-

Dad's making preparations to leave on his short vacation. Of course it will not seem short for either of us.
-
Aunt Kathy, the Bird-Sitter, will be lookin in on me, and my dear Uncle Geno promises to visit as well, so they will help pass the time....but nothing's the same without Dad. It's gonna be tough.
I have Dad trained for when it's time for fruit, when it's time for seeds. . .
Dad keeps telling me to be nice - last time I was so sad and angry and everything else that I was miserable to the bird-sitter . . . .
= = =
Saturday was a nice day. Dad and Uncle Geno took a short drive into the country.
Today is rainy and Dad will be at the movies in the afternoon.

  Hi Sugar!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight is the last night! I am so excited! Mom was finally able to pick up all of the bird toy parts that have been scattered around her room for the past month. She was happy about that! Haha! Tonight we are making a toy that looks like bird. You will need,

- Cardboard
- Coffee filters
- Finger traps
- Beads
- Little bird toy trinket pieces
- Safe stringing material
- OPTIONAL white paper

Take a large piece of cardboard and cut out a nice sized bird head and body. Once you have the body cut out, take a piece of string and knot the bottom, then poke a hole in sorta in the middle of your cutouts body, but a little lower. String your string through the hole, with the knot being on the back side. Take some coffee filters, and cut the sides into strips and poke holes in the middles. String those on like you would for a puff, one facing down, one facing up, and so on, until it is a nice sized puff on the body. String on a bead and knot it. Now poke a hole in the middle of the cutout near the bottom. Take a piece of string and knot them bottom, then string it through the hole with the knot on the front side (you won't see it, it will be under the puff). Take three finger traps, and string those on. Then string on a bead and knot it tight. Once they are tied, you can stick them out in different directions like a tail. For the head, it will be different for everyone depending on what kind of bird you want it to look like. We did a Green Cheek Conure. If you want an eye ring, cut out a small oval and poke a hole in the middle. Then to attach the eye, poke a hole on the cutout where you want it to be, take a piece of string and tie a knot at the bottom, string it through, and then string on the paper, and then a dark bead. Then knot it. To put on markings, you will do the same thing with the holes and string. Just add them (beads and random toy pieces) however you'd like in what ever colors you want. To make it so that you can hang it, you can make a loop, make a small hole in the cutouts head, and then string the loop through. Or, you can tie a bagel to a piece of string, then make a small hole in the cutout under the puff and string it through the hole with the bagel on the back side. Then knot it. You can then attach it by sticking the bagel through the cage bars and turning it the opposite way so that it stays.

I will post a picture of both the front and back sides of this toy in my gallery.

Thank you SO much for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

I don't think my Mom would know how to even read a book on a Kindle!My Mom is lucky she knows how to do email and blog!LOL!My Mom has been finding it hard to believe that the time lately just seems to fly right by her!It was good that Jennifer made it to work on time,that's just so stressful to have to get up and rush around and get out on time when you start out late like that.It's good that Aunt Eileen will have the girl there they trained last December to help do an ad that will help Aunt Eileen for having to do so much all at once!
Poor Aunt Eileen has to do so much even though she herself is tired!It's good though that Ian will take care of the clothes in the dryer after Aunt Eileen puts them in for him.Those burritos and chili really do sound so good and I'll bet they are so tasty and beak watering good!Ian and Jennifer are so lucky that they have Aunt Eileen there with them!Oh how awesome to be able to sleep without those beeps continually going on!I really don't blame you at all for growling at the gardeners truck,its a wonder you're not beginning to start beeping yourself!My Mom got to stay home with us all day and my dad too.But they were rudely awakened by the neighbor across the street.She was having her paved driveway all busted up right down to the dirt and does my Mom and dad and my frother and fister know what you mean about all the beeping and banging and scraping so early in the morning.Just the other day she had her scrub pine tree taken down which was as tall as the clouds in the sky.
Mom will be home tomorrow and I think Shiloh will be coming over after she meets with Anthony about the apartment next door to her.He never made it there today as he had gone to Nana's and then went back to his place to help them clean it out for the new owners.They had another yard sale there again today.We are all so praying that this coming week will be a nice quiet one for Aunt Eileen and not so busy at all.Its nice to have a breather after such a busy week!
Here I come my sweet precious Sugar to read our story together!I've been waiting all day for this moment in time so I can perch close to you and have our story,and spend time with you!You are the reason for me to be and I love you more than you can imagine!Angel wing hugs and soft angel kisses sent on the wings of a summer breeze!Loving you always and forever and ever,Gabbie

That sounds like a nightmare with all that construction going on all around you and it sure does drive you crazy to have to keep hearing the beeping of the backing up of the work trucks constantly.My Mom always has our radio on in our room constantly so we don't get freaked out with anything that we can see from our windows that scare us.Our windows are way up high so in order for us to be able to see out them we have to sit on the big playgym or sit in the window triangle rocker swing that's hanging from the window by the driveway side.That really is awesome that all those trucks bring the Boeing wings.That is so funny that you have a place called Everett there as we have an Everett here in MA.That's a greyt location not to be far from the freeway on ramp.But it also must be very busy with all those trucks and vehicles using it also.That is so funny that McKenzie at first was wagging her tail at the baby and then when the baby started crying she hid behind Aunt Eileen!I guess I can agree with you on that those little humans are good for pulling tails and ears.
That must look so pretty with all those yellow mums that the gardeners planted out front.Mom had planted a whole row of them years ago in front of our flower garden but they never came back the next year when they were supposed to.Ours were yellow too!Oh my Mom agrees with Aunt Eileen that they put lots of that bark mulch down by the stores and islands here and it does smell something bad.Mom used to use cedar bark mulch and it smelled good when she used it in her garden.Its good you can't smell that awful stuff inside the house!Mom says she doesn't know what it is about bark mulch but it really does smell horrid!
We were all so excited to see your pretty face in the spotlight yesterday,and you really deserve to be Queen of the Castle!You are our favorite Queen ever!
Mom loves chili and she's never made it with pinto beans or refried beans.It really sounds so good anyway!
Here I come my sweet precious Sugar to read our story together!I've been waiting all day for this moment in time so I can perch close to you and have our story,and spend time with you!You are the reason for me to be and I love you more than you can imagine!Angel wing hugs and soft angel kisses sent on the wings of a summer breeze!Loving you always and forever and ever,Gabbie

  t's funny that something so big would be afraid of something so small!
The friends kick back and pull out some cards.They decide to play Crazy 8's until lunch is ready.Aunt Rose will be making them some twice baked sweet potatoes for lunch with some jalapeno corn bread.
Dixie tells Sugar that so far his eye is looking a little better,his Mom is going to keep him on the antibiotics and eye drops for another week to see if the swelling goes down.She's going to give him another nare flush tomorrow to open his blocked nare up again.Dixie tells Sugar that he just loves those wafer cookies from the Dollar Tree!And his Mom used to buy his dad the pretzels all the time,she'd buy 10 bags at once for him and the boxes of popcorn.I guess he got sick of eating pretzels because Mom still has the one bag left,he hasn't eaten any for a few months now!Dixie tells Sugar that's a greyt price for the Mission tortillas,his Mom usually gets some of those when they're on sale here.Those burrito's really sound good!And both he and his Mom love the chili!Dixie thinks that Aunt Eileen will make excellent refried beans!Oh nooo!Not both Jennifer and Ian with colds now.Poor Aunt Eileen,Dixie and Candida pray that she doesn't catch their colds,she sure doesn't need anything else that would make her anymore tired than she already is!Dixie tells Sugar that his Mom gets the dayquil and nightquil pills for his dad.His Mom doesn't take any of the nightquil or dayquil either,it just makes her tired and work in slow motion!Mom tried that also with the magnetic board you can erase on and no one uses it.Dixie tells Sugar that Candida let his Mom know she needed something at the store,she pooped on it for her!
The friends continue to play cards and talk until Aunt Rose calls them for lunch!Both Dixie and Candida and their Mom tell Sugar they are the ones who are so blessed to have her here with them.Aunt Rose bends down and hugs Sugar and kisses her on her sweet head!Sugar you are always welcomed here,you don't even have to ask,you're a big part of our family and always will be!We love you so much sweetie.You always bring us the sunshine and we love you for it!

can hear Sugar come waddling down the hallway calling our their names!As she runs into the bird room they run to her and wrap their wings around her as she throws her wings around them!Both Dixie and Candida hug Sugar so tight and they savor her warm welcoming hugs,they are soooo happy to see her here!They really missed her so much!
Dixie tells Sugar not to worry,Candida gives Sugar and extra hug!Dixie tells Sugar that he can't even count on how many times that's happened to his Mom and dad with the alarm clocks!They now have two alarm clocks in their room,one goes off 15 minutes before the other.The first one has music playing when it goes off and the second one is that horrid buzzer alarm sound.Dixie agrees with Sugar that might just be the problem that the alarm is so old,older than Ian and must be super tired and ready to retire!hahahahaha!Poor Aunt Eileen having to be rushed right out of bed and get to work so tired!They feel bad for Sugar not even being able to get out to the play cage and have her bedtime snack!Dixie just hates those rushed days when their usual routine gets messed up!
The friends snuggle together in the play tent and Sugar opens up her Hello Kitty lunch box and pulls out 3 cranberry orange scones and Dixie places them on napkins for them while Sugar gives everyone a juice box and they settle back to have a snack and hear the story!
This book is called "I Am Shark".Shark thinks he's the most awesome animal ever!He's not afraid of anything and when Shark gets a shot he doesn't even cry and he can watch scary movies without getting scared!Some little fish asks him if he's afraid of anything and Shark says nope!What about a dinosaur?If a dinosaur saw me you you what he'd be?Scared!The little fish says not even squid or a creepy spider?Spiders?Spiders? yells Shark.Are there spiders around here?Is there a spider on me??No say the little fish,I was just asking if you were afraid of them!Shark tells him of course not!He's not afraid of squid either!A squid came by one day looking very tough but when he got a look at Sharks teeth,the squid inked all over himself,it was embarrassing!The little fish asks Shark if he's afraid of the dark.Everyone is afraid of the dark!Are there creepy spiders?No says the little fish,just dark!Nope!Just close your eyes!The dark is afraid of me!What about a big bear asks little fish.Is the bear holding a spider?asks Shark.No says little fish,just a big bear!Well I would show him my teeth and he would run away!Everyone is afraid of something says little fish.Not me says Shark.What about spiders?Who said I was afraid of spiders asks Shark.If I saw a big creepy spider I would just swim the other way as fast as I could!That's not being afraid.That's being smart!What are you guys afraid of asked Shark!Well sharks of course!Sharks?That's just silly.
Dixie,Sugar and Candida love the scones and the juice.They all giggle at the story of Shark.He really seems to be pretty scared of spiders.Sugar thinks i

  Hi Sugar
It was so fun seeing you in the spotlight.
I'm doing better. Yelling for my lunch when I KNOW it is time. Still 'melting', mom thinks LOTS of feathers on my cage floor. I am not acting ill any more.
Not much to report.
Zippy
Still no collar. I'm enjoying my freedom, but skinbro and mom are whispering. I may be pouting soon.
Yesterday I was chilly so I asked mom for 'step up' so I could use her body heat. Wasn't that smart of me? Skritches and warmth.

  Hi Sugar.
It's Popeye.
It rained here as well. Just enough to give dad an excuse not to mow the lawn today. I know what you mean about little humans. They sure are messy. They should learn to be neat and tidy like us birds.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Hi Sugar
It's Calico.
Yes, mom and dad still have one play to go. Then no more drives to LA.
Guess what? It rained last night. Dad never saw it coming. We got a "soaking" 0.03 inches. Dad never made it out to mow the front yard yesterday and today it's too wet to mow. Their friends will be in tomorrow so dad may try to get it all done in one day. Yeah, RIGHT!
Mom sent dad back to Costco yesterday. The coupons expire today and mom wanted things. Well, so did everybody else in La Habra and dad swears they were all at Costco. It took dad almost 2 hours to get the stuff and get home and he was not a happy shopper. But mom was starting to fix a pork butt roast with roasted veggies so dad mellowed out real fast. It's one of his favorites.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 71 and a low of 50. Maybe it will rain some more.
QUESTION:
If mom was cooking a pork butt roast, does that mean that there is a hog running around somewhere that can't sit down?
Hope your day is fun.

Calico

  Hi Sugar
Our weird mom has an old Garmin, but those maps need updated, too, and she can't find the connector for the computer. We think she should use a cell phone app, like Waze, to find her way. Hope you are having a spectacular day and can see the mountains today. Once mom was in Fontana visiting her aunt and uncle, and didn't see the San Bernardino mountains until her last day! She didn't even know there were mountains there.
Hugs, Willie and Peppino

  Hi Sugar
Kacey and Mikey opened a trampoline park, and those pics are on Kacey's page; go get one for yourself!
They are up to about 600 intakes so far this year, or will be by Monday. When mom did the intakes last Monday, her case numbers were in the early 500s. Babies are coming in right and left.
So sorry for all the construction noise there! I can't imagine the noise with the lawn guys, the blowers and the trucks, so it's a good thing they aren't all there at the same time. Those mums sound delightful.
Mom wasn't going to, but she posted 2 pics of me in my collar, because some birdies asked to see. As you can see, it's like a turtleneck. I hope it comes off soon, because it's keeping me from getting spritzed or getting a bath. Mom is afraid to wet it, thinking that might damage my skin under it.
Today there's not much going on. It's a beautiful day outside, though. Mom walked the dogs in sunshine! She'll spend part of today getting ready for the opera tonight. Aunt Ginny can't go with her, so her niece Jessica is going to pick mom up for dinner and the opera. The opera is The Rake's Progress, which mom has never heard. It's by Igor Stravinsky, who wrote some controversial music in his day, like the Firebird and the Rite of Spring. Those are both ballets that mom likes, so hopefully the opera will be at least interesting.
I hope you are having a great day today, getting some sun and lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Your mom is so sweet to help the auditor when she needs to leave. That's so awful about her husband, hope his foot will be alright.
We'll see you later for story time. Another good chapter story about birds is the Trumpet of the Swan, by EB White, the same person who wrote Charlotte's Web. Mom used to read either that one, Charlotte's Web, or Stuart Little to her class, too.
We'll see you later for a story. Hugs and angel kisses, Divo and Gizmo

  Hi, Sugar
Did the refried beans get made? Never made those here either but always wondered about it.

Would assume less cars at night so good time to do the construction though could be a tad noisy. However, shouldn't take too long to finish and then it'll all be good.

Don't think many critters ever get used to babies. They are rather unpredictable. Must've been rather funny to have McKenzie hide behind your mom!

Big ad for mom yesterday. She got it done but then found a few more she'll have to add today. Also has to make a few more apparel signs as some need more. At least think got all the the old ones down. Most were taken down but a few were missed.

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

  hi Sugar !
What a lovely afternoon yesterday ! Mom came straight home from school plopped down on the sofa and skritched my head :) When I started squawking, she brought me my bath tub and we both got soaked before settling down for a nice long talk and the singing of some songs :) Daddy made burritos for dinner so mom didn't even have to leave me to fix dinner ! ! Then I got apple for dessert ! ! Life is good !

It'll be even better after the weekend of drama club ! This morning she and dad will do some grocery shopping before she heads back to school to start getting everything ready. I'll bet she'll even try to take a nap - cause it'll be a mighty late night ! Cast party till midnight ! Two adults with 47 young teens (6-8 grade) ! Pretty scary !

I totally get McKenzie's reaction - those squirmy little humans aren't good for much till they get big enough to play with !

Well, you have a great Saturday ! See you tomorrow :) love Cookie

  Hi Sugar
We don't hear the construction at night here. But, we hear I-75 expressway as we live very close to it. They is hard as we are only used to hearing animals out in the woods (up north house). Sometimes, mom leaves the bathroom fan on so she can get to sleep!
That is so funny with Ms McK and the baby. I just stare at them. I think kids are strange.
Not much going on here. It was another sunny day of 91 and still no rain. I was busy chewing up some wood toys and I'm proud of the artistic design on the floor. It looks greyt to me.
Mom was outside watering the plants and someone came up to her ... it was Bunni. He just watched her and walked along with her for a while. I guess I should tell him that I do the supervising around here, it's my job.

  Hi Sugar
babies take some getting used to thats for sure. good the road work is almost done.

moms eye is feeling better and just a little itchy . her side really hurts but that should go away. mom waited at the eye doctors for 3 hours. she finished a book and tun dad came out and said the doctor said his eye was much better and dad was very relieved. it was good mom was forced to sit there since she couldn't get into anymore accidents whir reading. mom came home and then slept and slept and is feeling more rested. today she bought 3 yellow twig dogwoods to plant. they re good for -40F and don't require much sun.

Bad Paddy Cake was at it again and landed on top of the curtains in the bedroom and took off with the silk poop protector mom made to cover the curtains. its about 12 feet long and when i saw that thing dropping down to the carpet I panicked and ran into my cat carrier for safety and wouldn't come out until mom had it draped over the top of the curtains again.

Boo Boo saw it falling first and had already hoped to the other end of the bedroom before i even knew what was happening.

HAPPY TGIF DAY

Love Cori and Boo Boo

  Hi Sugar!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we will be making a shreddable toy that looks like a person. You will need,

- A wiffle ball
- Cupcake papers
- Beads
- 2 bigger wood beads
- Mini wood blocks
- Paper straws
- A treat cup
- 3 paper loaf cups
- Safe stringing material

Start by taking a pretty long piece of string, and tying a loop at the top. String on a bead, and then take 5-6 cupcake papers and cut the sides into strips, and then string those on like you would for a puff, one facing down, one facing up, and so on. Now string on the wiffle ball, and then a longer or bigger bead. Now you are going to take a new piece of string, and tie it onto your first piece under the big bead you just added. Once you tie that on, you should have two pieces hanging down on either side of the original piece. On both strands, you are going to string on a mini block, and then half of a paper straw. Then knot the ends on both sides. Now going back to the original string, take a treat cup and poke a hole in the bottom, then string it on facing down. Now take your 3 loaf cups, and poke holes in the bottom of them. String one on facing down, then string on a bead, then another loaf cup, then another bead, then the last loaf cup. Now string on 2-3 beads, and then take another new piece of string and tie it on the original, just like last time. You will want the two pieces hanging down so that they are longer. On each strand, string on a single big bead, and then knot the bottoms. Now string one more bead on the original strand, and knot the bottom. You're done!

Mom just adores this toy, she says it is one of her favorites that she has made. There is a picture in my gallery!

Thank you so much for voting for me! Just one more night until I will hopefully be in the castle! I'll see you tomorrow night. (:

Hugs,
Grey Bird
