  Hi Sugar
Thanks for the votes. I hope to make it before the weekend ... a busy one for my parronts.
It was a beautiful sunny day. It got up to 59 degrees at one point but it was chilly because of the wind. The sad part is the huge gathering of Canada geese in Walloon Lake. They were resting on the way down south. Mom was asking them not to go unless they take her with them. I hope I get to go too! Fly Away Home music begins ...........
Hugs
Chyna

  Heya, Miss Sugar!
You can hide the cursor in the settings, so wonder if somehow that is getting updated or changed by something else. Darn cursors. Maybe checking the troubleshooter for hardware will identify what is wrong.

Well, today was sunny, but still only got to 63 degrees. Mom was glad it wasn't raining today, cuz she went down to the lakefront and watched some sailboats on the water (boy, they sure must have had to be wearing some heavier clothes, cuz it sure was chilly there!). There were geese out on the lake, and of course a seagull or three flying overhead. And the neatest thing--a monarch butterfly was dancing in the wind in front of Mom, and it followed her as she walked back to the building. Made Mom smile, too! So pretty in the sunlight, and Mom has not seen many of them this year, so this was very special.

Not much else going on. Mom got a later start in to work this morning (and it was not my fault! Even if she did give me head scritches a bit longer than she should have...) and she had to park on the 5th level of the structure. UGH! That was only partially covered, so it got to Mom. She hates heights, and that was enough to make her get her butt out of the house lots earlier. Kinda freaked her out to be up that high and seeing only the sky. Nope. No way! She definitely did not like it one bit.

  Hi Sugar,

How are you? It's your Friend, Oz. I need your help, I think. I was told to post about the Double Wedding of my Sister, Cheyenne to Jedi & my Brother, Apache to Snowflake this Sat., Sept. 20th @ 4:00PM (Eastern Time) on the Calendar and I did but could you check to see if I did it right or not? This is the first Wedding that I've ever been in and I'm the Maid of Honor & Cookie (The Quaker) is the Best Man. The Reception is immediately following the Ceremony and Spot is doing it. I have to get in touch with him also. I also left a message for Ms. BB reminding her about using the Castle (not sure how to get there either). Hey, Mom says that she's not the sharpest pencil in the box LOL. HELP!!! Okay, here's a vote for you, cutie. Bye and I hope to hear from you soon. Hope to see You there and whoever you want to bring to the Wedding! Make sure you have your dancing shoes on, Girlfriend!

Love & Winghugs,
Oz (Your Pink Friend)

Come visit me, Parker, Silver, APACHE IS SO HAPPY SNOWFLAKE SAID YES ON 04/27/14, Oz & Cheyenne said YES to her Jedi 5/3/14.

  Hi Sugar--
Mom did not know that your Mom made that special picture for BOTD....Thanks so much!

The weather has been gorgeous, and since I am not there to keep Mom indoors, she has been going great guns in the garden. Except today she had to take the old guy to get the rest of his bottom teeth removed and his fake ones put in for the first time. This should be an experience!! He is already talking about getting uppers!!! We'll see how long THAT lasts...hee hee!

Hope you're having a splendid day...hi to your flock...even that dratted kitty! Hugs from another one of your angels...

  Day 16--Kayaking Adventures
Good morning everyone, Angel Girl here with today's post. The afternoon turned out perfect for kayaking along the coast line. We stop for lunch in a sheltered cove, where within minutes we are able to visit a nationally known Seabird nesting site. Here Terns, Gulls and other species nest noisily in the rocky cliffs and along the shoreline. As we enjoyed our lunch the sounds from the nesting birds was difficult to hear over.
"WOW, I can't believe how loud they are" Popeye yells to Chyna only inches away. The two girls laugh as neither can hear one another.
"Look" Cydney says pointing to a family of whales surfacing not far off shore. She snaps several pictures before joining Willie, Kaji, Lizzie and Cookie as they hike to the nesting grounds with the others. " Yuck!" she looks down, and sees she'd stepped in Sea Gull poop, " OH no, my new shoes!" she looks sadly at the mess. The others giggle
"Snowy!" Sky calls, come here buddy wanta show you something " a lobster" they look at the large clawed creature staring angrily back from a shallow pool of water among rocks. Let's help him back into the ocean." Sky says trying to pick the snapping Lobster." Snowy grabs a stick and lifts him up as he clamps down. " not such a nice fella are ya?" he laughs as Sky and him gently lower him into the surf.
"AHHHHHH, babies" Little Angel tells Dixie, " aren't they cute." they watch the fledglings trying to rise into the sky as clouds of white take off from the shore. " doesn't it make you just wanta have a baby to love too?" LA gets all dreamy eyed. "Maybe we can adopt a baby bird?" she smiles sweetly watching the youngsters.
Boo Boo and Cori take photos of the birds in flight, as Chipper and BonBon draw pictures in their sketchbooks. Spot and a few of the boys take off into the sky flying with the Seabirds, screaming happily with them.
"Ok, sorry everybirdie but we must move on. We have lots more to see" Angel Girl calls loudly, trying to be hear over the roar of bird voices. Reluctantly everyone says farewell to their new friends, as they head to the shore and get their kayak ready to move on. The whales continue to swim close to the shore as the group paddles off. Angel Girl shares a little history of Cape Breton as they quietly paddle along.

In 1784, Britain split the colony of Nova Scotia into three separate colonies: New Brunswick, Cape Breton Island, and present-day peninsular Nova Scotia, in addition to the adjacent colonies of St. John's Island (renamed Prince Edward Island in 1798) and Newfoundland. The colony of Cape Breton Island had its capital at Sydney on its namesake harbor fronting on Spanish Bay and the Cabot Strait. Its first Lieutenant-Governor was Joseph Frederick Wallet DesBarres (1784–1787) and his successor was William Macarmick (1787).

Large-scale shipbuilding began in the 1790s. Shipbuilding peaked in the 1850s, marked in 1851 by the full rigged ship Lord Clarendon, the largest ever built in Cape Breton.

  Hi Sugar
It's a great picture, and both girls look so cute.
As for the deer? That's a tough call. In most states deer are overpopulated, so having an extended season makes some sense. There are other options, though. Deer eat mostly browse, which means they eat softer buds and twigs, berries, fruits, nuts, bushes, etc. There is no way to replace that food quickly, however, it kind of needs to grow back. The game wardens there might be able to provide some foodstuffs for them, but it would be worse for the deer if they were to starve to death. That's a painful way to go. So maybe an expanded hunting season is the right thing to do to prevent suffering in the herd. Mom knows that's not what you'd like to hear, but the meat could feed the homeless and do some good.
Mom had a meeting today at the museum, so we are just getting online now. It was mostly about teaching new docents the rest of the halls. Mom had 2 years of training, but the docents who were hired in the spring only had training either in Dinosaur hall or in 3 cultures. Now they are worried that the new folks can't do tours in the rest of the museum. Anyway mom signed on to teach ecosystems, biomes, and animal adaptations, as well as possibly PA natural history. Hope they can use her expertise in some way or other.
Bree came by to do our birdicures yesterday and while she and mom were talking, mom mentioned that I am not as active with her as I used to be, and that I haven't really wanted a bath for awhile either. Bree looked at my injured leg and she thinks I might still have a fractured fibula, the little bone in the leg. So mom called Jill today to see if she can look at me and give her opinion, and maybe some vet wrap too.
I hope you are having a good day today, getting a lot of love and sunshine. Hugs, Falco

We are so glad to hear that Mandy is doing well now. She sure is one special girl. As for cat food, mom needs to be specific and tell dad to buy a case or at least a dozen cans! That's awful.
We are very proud of our brother Peppino for getting BOTD today, too.
We will see you tonight for story time, till then here are some hugs and angel kisses from Divo and Gizmo

  and the juice!They both can't help giggling at the fancy words Nancy uses and they are both so happy that the dance came out so well!
Sugar cleans up from their snack and gets Dixie's legs up on the Hello Kitty Pillow and massages his legs.Dixie tells Sugar that his Mom spent the day cleaning the floors downstairs,she scrubbed them all the kitchen tile floor and the dining room hardwood floor and the hall to his room,then she washed them all and then put some polish stuff on them,she had lots of work moving the dining table and benches to the other side of the room so each section could dry before she did the next,his dad noticed how shiny the floor was when he came home from work,Mom was glad that they all dried in time because his dad usually walks all over the wet floor and leaves big footprints in them!Dixie tells Sugar that he wishes he could have another shower or bath,since the weather got cold his Mom won't let him go outside anymore,she told him he might get to have a bath in the sink later on!Dixie loves how Sugar has fun splashing in her water bowl!He tells her she always looks so fluffy whenever she has a bath!And how her feathers are so shiny and glowing!
Before long the friends are yawning and stretching their wings and know its bed time!Dixie gives Sugar a kiss goodnight and cuddles under her wing.They say their prayers and add a special one just for Nana.Dixie says his own prayers just for Sugar!He is so blessed and grateful to have been given the most loving and caring friend ever!He thanks the Lord each and everyday for having Sugar to share his days with and his life with!He loves her soo sooo very much!

waiting on tenterhooks to hear Sugar come waddling around the corner from the hallway,sticks his beak out and sees her waddling her way down and he lets out a happy GCC squeal as he waits by the door for her!Waddling into the room she throws her wings around him and holding him tightly tells him just how happy she is to be here with him and Dixie holding Sugar so tightly tells her he was getting ready to move the hands of the clock so it would bring her here faster to him!hehehehe!This is his favorite time of the day and he wasn't going to miss it for anything!
Dixie laughs when Sugar tells him that her dad only got three cans of cat food for Aunt Eileeen,when she always buys two weeks worth!Dixie tells her that's something his dad would do,if he could find the pet section in the store,his dad hasn't been in a grocery store in years!Those fires in Northern California are scary and Dixie prays that all those involved in it stay safe!He is so glad that Sugar's dad didn't stick around there for long!
The friends waddle on to the platform and snuggle close together.Dixie takes the Hello Kitty Lunch Box from Sugar and upon opening it discovers apple pies!Dixie agrees with Sugar and he just loves it when his Mom makes apple crisp and hot apple pie is awesome any time of the year!As he sets the pies on napkins,Sugar fills two big glasses of cold apple juice for them both!They begin to nibble on the pies and take sips from the juice as Sugar starts reading from the book she brought for them tonight!The story is called Fancy Nancy and the Mermaid Dance.Fancy Nancy is a funny little girl who loves using fancy words and they explains to everyone their meaning! She along with her best friend Bree take ballet lessons.They are both hoping to be picked to perform in the Mermaid Dance show and wish to be Mermaids!They keep practicing their dancing routines and borrow Nancy's little sisters wading pool to practice being a Mermaid.They design Mermaid costumes with tiara's made from seashells!
The parts are given out and Bree and Nancy are not Mermaids!Bree is an oyster and Nancy is a tree!Both girls are unhappy but they decide that they are going to do their best!Nancy is told by the teacher that she is to be a weeping willow tree and she is happy that its not going to be a plain tree!
Then one of the girls who is a Mermaid sprains her ankle and can't dance!The teacher then tells Bree that she will be taking over the part!Nancy tells Bree that she is happy for her but doesn't really mean it!Nancy confides to her Mom that she feels bad because Bree is her best friend and she wants to be happy for her,but then her Mom tells her that Nancy feels that way because Bree has something she wants,and that Nancy has to keep in mind that Bree is her best friend!Nancy agrees to be honestly happy for Bree!Nancy's costume is very fancy and just what Nancy loves!Both she and Bree do fantastic in the show and they get a standing ovation!
Dixie and Sugar enjoy the pie a

Another chilly start to the day - but after a few morning sprinkles, it's supposed to warm up to about 70. Of course - mom came home yesterday and cleaned out her bedroom - she filled two whole garbage bags of things for charity ! Also she got out a few lightweight sweaters for these mornings. I hope these cold mornings are not a coming attraction !

Today is a long one for her even though she doesn't start her drama club till November . . . no prep periods on Tuesday :( Have a great day my friends :) love Cookie

Thanks for the votes. I think I'm doing greyt as I was just in the 10K club on April 2013!
The BC has been ok for me tonight. But, FB has been a pain in the tail feathers lately.
We had a nice day of 55 with a little sun for a few hours. I was very busy playing all day. I did take time out to watch the blue jays and chippies eating peanuts on the patio. It might get a bit warmer with more sun tomorrow, I hope so. Hope you had a nice day.

Ipo hugs Sugar hard. I'm sorry, but tomorrow marks one year since Punkin left us. I'm kinda down, she was the one who taught me to sword fight and all the sneaky pirate things. I'm to big to be in Sam's hat though. I wonder if mom will ever get another finch? I could teach it to be a pirate and tell it all the wonderful things about Punkin and how special she was. Then maybe it would even be able to hide in Sam's hat. It'd be so special wouldn't it?
And then you could read to it and .....well, you know. *she buries her face in Sugars feathers. Leaning back she smooths her friends feathers from her tears.* Sorry, didn't mean to get you all wet.
On a happier thought, it'll be a full year Pimer's been with us. He came the afternoon she died. He's fit in pretty good and even though Oatie still wishes he'd go and flush himself, he still thinks she's the best thing since millet. hehe He's waitin out there for me in the shuttle. I wanted to come see you alone.
I brought this book "Green Eggs and Ham" and thought we could look through it together. *they sit quietly and go through the book and giggle at the story. After a while they go out to the shuttle and after hugs Ipo takes her seat and they take off.

Send that weather our way, please!! It was only about 58 here today, with rain. And tonight? 38 degrees. THIRTY EIGHT DEGREES! Some places are supposed to get frost to the north of us. Mom turned on the heater for me, and she is envying me a whole lot, cuz I get the heat. We don't have any yet, as the heat comes on first around October 15th. Then again, we have not had a cold spell like this in ages. But brrr!

I sure hope you get that computer fixed soon, it sounds like a real exercise in coping with frustration. Who are the little ones in your gallery, first pic? I wanted to ask before, but kept forgetting. They are cuties, though.
Is the fair over yet? Or does it run another week?
Today Bree is coming for our birdicures. This morning mom cleaned the outdoor RVS pens for the first time in awhile. There are 2 adult coyotes out there in separate pens as well as 22 raccoons! Good thing the raccoons are social and don't mind sharing quarters, because the center doesn't have 22 cages out there! They can be housed in a few large cages, but those are real bears to clean, so it took mom over 2 hours for all the outdoor areas today. Still, it was nice to be out in the sun, even if it was cooler than we like.
I don't think we'll get out today, because it's not very warm again. In fact, it looks like it's gonna be cool all week long. I hope you are having better weather, getting some warm sunshine and especially getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Falco

is getting excited knowing that any minute Sugar will be peering around that corner to see if he is waiting there for her and as he hears her waddling down the hall,he makes a noise of such happy delight and runs into her warm wings as she throws them around him and hugs him tightly!Dixie just couldn't be happier to be here with Sugar,knowing just how much he misses her when she's gone!
Dixie tells Sugar that his dad vacuumed the whole pantry,Shiloh's old room they have been working on all weekend,and the whole garage,walls,ceiling and floor from all the cobwebs and bugs that were stuck on them!
Dixie feels bad that Jennifer never said good night to Sugar before she went to bed,but he's so glad that Ian did!
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 can smell the beak watering aroma of soft peanut butter cookies waft past his nares!As Sugar serves them each a glass of banana smoothie,he sets the cookies on napkins for them!Sugar starts reading the story she brought with her tonight while they begin nibbling on the cookies and sipping their smoothies!
The book is called Jeremy Draws A Monster!Jeremy is a shy little boy who lives on the third floor of an apartment building,who never ventures outside to play with the other kids.He watches them play looking out his window,he's not sure that they would play with him.Jeremy begins to draw one day and draws a monster!The monster comes to life and tells Jeremy to make him a picture of a sandwich because he is hungry.Then he wants Jeremy to make him a drawing of a TV so he can watch it,then he wants a toaster as he likes toast.The monster wants a hot dog to eat while he watches TV and a phone also in case someone may call him!The whole day is spent by the monster,telling Jeremy what to do and what he wants him to do for him!He tells Jeremy not to just sit there to draw him a hat because he is going out!Jeremy is sleeping peacefully when he hears a banging at his door!The Monster came back and has taken Jeremy's bed and throws him out on the floor!Jeremy can't take it anymore and in the morning he draws a one way ticket for the bus and a suitcase.Taking the monster outside he gets him on a bus!Waving good bye to the monster the other kids in the neighborhood come up to him and want to know if Jeremy would like to play with them!Jeremy says yes and he finally has some friends to hang out with!
Dixie and Sugar enjoy the cookies and the smoothies!They both giggle at how bossy the monster is and are so happy that Jeremy decided to go outside and make some friends!
Sugar cleans up from their snack and gets Dixie's legs up on the Hello Kitty Pillow and massages his legs and he tells her that his parronts had a bbq but it was too cold for them to be outside so he got to watch them from the acrylic cage that was in the big tv room window,his Mom saved them all some corn on the cob for later.Shiloh went home

...hi aunt Auda and Sugar bear, hey ladies, my Bears won last night in San Fran in their new stadium, thank you 49's! We are having a mundane Monday, but with no complaints to speak of, and who would listen anyway! My dad is having a really hard time recognizing this Isis/Isol group as human beings, but can't say anything about them because it would surely offend some poor sensitive terrorist somewhere! We are praying for our West Central California friends caught up in that horrific forrest fire, and sending our special prayers to sick and injured parrots everywhere! Have a great Monday, and give my love to my dear aunt Eileen, and all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

Monday love from Jenny & my family

  Hi Sugar
Ipo smacks her beak. Those scones were delicious. I wish I wouldn't have had to share em, but only fair I know. Oatie's doin ok. She's still pluckin but that's normal for her. Besides we all are in a molt. Oh it is so much nicer here. Sophie hardly squawks too. She used to always squawk but now it's not as bad. We all do voice things when mom heads to the kitchen. That's where the good stuff comes from you know.
The longest we ever were travelin is 5 days when we moved TO NC from Reno. That was awful. The only reason it took that long is dad got us lost a couple of times. It only took 3 days to get to here from NC. If we woulda had to go back to Reno it woulda been 4 days. It's about 9 1/2-10 hr drive from here so it isn't to bad and when we get close to Reno, we'll be stoppin off at Lisa's, she's the Adopt a Bird friend of ours. So we got it worked out that we stay there for a whole day then onto Reno and see friends and load things in whatever we end up takin. Mom's tempted to rent from enterprise like they did when they went to Reno the time it snowed so much. That was right after we moved back here. We're all for a newish car/truck/van whatever.
Mom was laughin at me today. Well, me and Pimer. First time was after the meany (she wants to be best friends now) anyhow she stopped by right after mom got to sleep. Wasn't even a full 5 mmins. Well mom has trouble gettin to sleep anyhow so I started my shrill whistle. She hollered at me to be quiet but you know that just eggs us on, so I did louder. Pretty soon mom peeks over the couch and we play peek a boo for a while then she came and got me. I was snugglin down for a nap when Pimer starts flyin around. He landed on the chair across the room and does a little dance. Changes his perch a couple of times and listens and dances to the music then starts divin around me. He landed on the couch and I gave mom a kiss then climbed up to chase him off the couch. He was flyin around so funny, really showin off and all. Mom was laughin right out loud about it. Guess the move was good for her too cause we haven't got mom laughin like that for a while.
We know that it's fall out cause the pea plants are startin to produce again. hahaha Yeah a few of em came up from the roots and now we're gettin some peas again. The beans are doin good too. Not much has done anythin this year though. It's been wet enough but not hot enough for long enough. We been in the 50s nights for nearly a month now. so it's just not warm enough for a garden.
I better get goin for now. *she gives a big hug before flying off*

  legs!Dixie tells
Sugar that his Mom and dad went upstairs and cleaned out skin sis's old room and took her desk downstairs and her game table and put them in the sun room and then all her books and magazines Mom put in the cellar and then Mom vacuumed the whole room while dad took out both a/c's and put the one in their bedroom in the closet of the spare bedroom and the other one(portable)a/c went into the sunroom.Dixie looks at Sugar and tells her how beautiful her feathers look all nice and fluffy!He tells Sugar that it was too cold here for him to have a shower outside so Mom is going to have to let them have their showers in the kitchen sink and make sure the heat box is on so they can dry off now!Dixie just loves how Sugar helps Aunt Eileen with the laundry and getting the kitchen cleaned up!He too just loves it when everyone is home and not going anywhere so they can just hang out together and watch movies!Dixie so agrees with Sugar that she has got to take advantage of each warm day there is to take a shower now,it doesn't look like he'll be going outside anymore!
Before long the friends are yawning and stretching their wings and know its time for bed!Dixie gives Sugar a goodnight kiss and cuddles under her wing!They say their prayers and add a special one just for Nana!Dixie has his own prayers for Sugar and knows just how blessed he is to have her for his loving and caring friend!He thanks the Lord everyday for giving him Sugar in his life and to share his days with!He loves her soo sooo very much!Sleep tight and sweet dreams,Bird Of My Heart!I love you more than there are stars in the sky and wider than the ocean is deep!

listens intently as he waits for Sugars talons to click across the floor towards his room and as he stretches his neck out too get a closer look,he sees her peeking around the corner,giggling as she comes waddling over to him!As they waddle inside his room,Sugar throws her wings around Dixie and holding him tightly tells him how happy she is to be there with him!Dixie holding Sugar just as tightly,closes his eyes and takes in all the love he feels from Sugar's warm hugs!He tells her just how excited he is to be there with her!He just couldn't wait another second,this is the time of day that he is most looking forward too,and he is just soo thrilled to have Sugar here with him early tonight!She will always be able to count on him staying right there waiting for her to come and be with him!
Dixie feels so sad that Sugar's Dad has toe leave them again but he's happy that her daddy is feeling better now and he only prays that he won't have to stay away too much longer til the next time he can come home and be with them again!
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 discovers two cherry tarts within!As he places the tarts on napkins for them Sugar fills two large glasses with cherry smoothie for them.They begin to nibble on the tarts and take refreshing sips from the smoothies as Sugar takes out the book she brought for them to read tonight and shows it to Dixie!
The book is called The Apple Orchard Riddle!Mr.Tiffin is taking his class on a field trip to the Apple Orchard,the class is so excited to be going!Farmer Hill shows them where they store the apples in the barn.They are going to solve a riddle during their visit to the orchard,Mr.Tiffin tells the class.What looks like a red house with a star inside it?he asks them.None of the class can take a guess at it!They learn about the many kinds of apples while they tour the orchard.Most of the apples are harvested from spring until late fall!The kids all get to go pick apples and get a bag to put them in!A little girl picks and apple off the tree and finds a worm sticking out of it!All the kids yell YUCK!Then the little girl tells everyone that that is the worms house and then puts the apple under the tree.They get to watch Farmer Hill running the cider press and when he is done they all get to have a cup of cold cider!
Before they have to go,Mr.Tiffin wants to know if anyone knows the answer to the riddle.The little girl with the worm in the apple tells Mr.Tiffin the answer is an apple!Mr.Tiffin slices an apple in half and all the class can see that the seeds make a star!That little girl sure is so smart!
Sugar and Dixie love the tarts and the smoothies.They are both excited to see a star inside the apple.Everyone always seems to cut the apple the opposite way so you can never see the star!
Sugar cleans up from their snack and gets Dixie's legs up on the Hello Kitty Pillow and massages his le

  Hi Sugar-
Thanks for thinking of me on my special day....can't think of what I did to deserve BOTD, but it's nice that so many birdies stopped by to say hi.

The Moms went to Bird Paradise yesterday for the first time since I left them. It was kinda hard. Mom D spent some time watching two very young female parrotlets. One was yellow like me, and the bossy one was green. The yellow one was a hoot...playing like I never did...even lying on her back under a toy. The Moms sure wish they had gotten me sooner, cuz I was all alone in my cage at the store for about 3 months! They figured that out after they talked with the breeder who sold me to the store.

Anyhow, you take good care of your Mom and that cute little Maddie. Hugs to ya all.

  Hi Sugar
There were a lot of animals there, 3 education turtles, Twitch, of course, Chelsea the possum, Irwin the porcupine, Murphy the skunk, and Martha the Great Horned owl. They were all positioned at various spots along the obstacle course.
Hope dad and mom got to work on time with the fair traffic.
Today mom was up super early to feed us and the dogs, then get to an event on time. She thought she would have time to walk the furballs, but she didn't, so she's going to walk them when we are done with our blogs. The event was called Wild Rumpus, and there were 2 obstacle courses, one for adults that was 5km, and one for kids that was considerably shorter, as it was all in a field with a hill on it. There weren't as many people as mom thought there would be, but it was not well advertised and was competing with at least 2 other local events. It was damp and cool out, but mom was mostly dressed for the weather. She refused to wear real shoes, though, so her feet got cold in her sandals. Twitch the squirrel was pretty cute, though. He ate a couple of Brazil nuts which mom gave him as a challenge. She thought it would take him awhile to get through the shell into the nut, but he surprised her with his quickness.
I hope you are having a good day today, staying warm and getting cuddles. Hugs, Falco

Mom always says technology is GREYT WHEN it works, AND there is power.
A problem puter sure does cut into our social time, tho.
Mom says her soapbox is good for something, and she took her own advice.
Dad is out of the house so we have internet for a bit, AND sunlight streaming in. It is 59 degrees outside, so not too bad. BUT not like the mid 80s of last week. I think our summer is over. We are hoping mom takes quick dictation so she can get us our lunch.

  Day 14--Inverness-Eagle Eye Kayak tour-part 1
Good morning everybirdie, Angel Girl with today's first Inverness adventure. As the red sun rises over the ocean we finish our hearty breakfast of toast, scrambled eggs, bacon and fruit served up by some of our handsome boy-birds. By the time the sun is above the waters edge we are riding off to begin today's fun tour. Our destination is Eagle Eye Kayak tours. We will kayak from Inverness Harbour along the warm calm waters of the Northumberland Strait. See the rugged cliffs, waterfalls and rocky coastlines. Watch the many Bald Eagles that frequent the area. Take a break for a snack on a secluded beach and look for beach glass or fossils. We will learn to and experience the peacefulness of paddling the spectacular coast and enjoying the natural beauty of the coastline.
"Everybirdie ready?" Angel Girls calls as we turn our horses out into the paddock, with plenty of hay and water. " we are off for a five hour adventure. Make sure to bring your cameras, water bottles and let's have some serious fun" Angel Girl waves her wing and leads off towards the shoreline where the instructors are waiting.
After an in-depth discussion on paddling, safety and making certain our life-jackets are on correctly, we are assigned a Kayak, and push out to sea. "Hey that sounds so cool. Out to sea!" Angel Girl giggles happily as she tries to balance in the kayak.
"Wee, this is fun" Rio yells to Kaji and Lizzie in the Kayak. " wow, don't move too much!" he tells Miranda in another Kayak.
"Look!" Jenny-Lynn points to a distant dark shape, " a whale" she shows Lalo and Sweetie, who stares in awe as the giant mammal surfaces int he far distance.
"Eagles!" Finnegan says, watching the majestic form above, " he's beautiful"
" Tango and Susan look down into the dark water seeing small schools of fish swimming by their Kayak"
"Oh Dixie, this is soooo much fun" Little Angel smiles eggcitedly, " I love kayaking" she paddles like a pro. Sky gives her a frown, as he and BB gain their sea-legs and stop their Kayak tipping side to side.
"Touchy things aren't they" Pearl cries as Silver and Peppino try to steady their wobbling kayak.
Finally we are all ready, and begin to dip our paddles into the calm ocean water. The kayaks move silently, some steadier then others as first-time paddlers learn how to do it. Before all have mastered paddling and off we head along the coast-line.
"A moose" Pookie calls out. A huge bull raises his head from drinking, and watches the birds paddle past. Ducks and Canada Geese flock along the waters edge, swimming along beside us as we go. " WOW, Swans." a group of thirty or more white Swans honk their annoyance of our intrusion. Polly and Falco snap pictures with their cameras.
" Everybirdie" Angel Girl yells out, " Seals" the coastline area is grey with seals. Their calls filling the air loudly. Many hurriedly dive into the water, coming closes for us to take pictures. " this is amazing!" Angel Girl takes lots of photos

  Hi Sugar,
That's okay! If you would like to play for the team, mom can drop you off anytime during the day. You would just go to the page where the game is being held and blog that you are there for today's game. The coach's blog for the game and will include you in the plays. If you are interested, please let me know in your next blog. If not, please tell me who you think that would like to participate, if you know of anyone. Thanks!!

It's so nice to see you each day at the KB! Thanks for stopping by. Hope you're having a good day! Left a vote.
