  Hi miss Falco
Sure hope you enjoyed your Labor Day - we did. Mom did nothing but play with and hang out with me ! Never left the house ! It was wonderful :) But now here it is - back to work, everything is done except getting her brain in gear ! At least there's another couple days to do that - the kids don't start till Thursday.

We do love fall though - it's mom's and dad's favorite season - the smells, the colors and the temperatures are perfect ! Although today is still summer - supposed to be 90 and humid - Mother Nature saved the hottest day of the year for back to school ! Jeepers !

Have a great day ! love Cookie

Oh good, I'm glad your mom will pack one. You never know, they might get a little pool time.
The squirrels sounds like they are growing up fast. Are they in a cage or can they roam about? What do Polly & Daisy think of them?
Sounds like Lena's art show went very well. She is a good artist.
Hope you had a nice Labor Day. We didn't have a BBQ today. Instead, northern Michigan had a nasty t-storm and a tornado. Three areas were hit but, no one was hurt just houses, cars, trees. The tornado was 20 miles south of us. We lost several trees on our property. Our power was out because a tree fell on the wires and took them down on the road. This was next door to us. My parronts went to town and came home with chicken. We ate our dinner in the dark with a flash light. I don't like eating in the dark! We are finally with power again ...YAY!
Hugs
Chyna

PS Remember where your mom met up with my mom at Arbys? That was the first touch down and the second was north of the 45th closer to 32 that goes over to the expressway (going home route) and then it turned and touched down near Gaylord (where you get on the expressway. Good thing it turned!)

  Hi Falco
mom was outside working and it started pouring at our house and the sun never stopped shining

thought you might find this interesting about ANIMAL SABOTEURS
See that bushy-tailed rodent chattering in the tree outside your house? It could be preparing to take down the electric grid.

Last year around Nashville, Tennessee, more power outages--2,257--were caused by squirrels and other creatures sharpening their teeth than by bad weather. This spring, a squirrel knocked out power for 23,000 people in California's Marin County, and last year one took out the water system in Tampa, Florida. Saboteur squirrels have turned out the lights at a sewage treatment plant, an airport, a hospital, a university, even a baseball game.

Animals monkey-wrench by chewing, touching wires together, or tripping switches. They almost always die in the process. But there are plenty of replacements. This spring, a raccoon snuffed out the lights for 5,700 households in Opelousas, Louisiana. In Holton, Kansas, snakes in a substation knocked out power citywide twice in five days.

"Wild animals are anywhere and everywhere and you can't predict what they will do In March, a rogue rat shorted out the cooling system at Japan's crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

The greatest havoc, is wrought by crazy ants, who have colonized electrical appliances across the Southeast, shorting out burglar alarms, computers, and televisions. When their wriggling bodies bridge the circuit and they electrocute themselves, they send out a pheromone, calling in reinforcements. In a Waco, Texas, apartment complex, crazy ants took out 90 of the building's 150 air-conditioning units.

They're not doing it on purpose, of course. But if animals were trying to destroy civilization, this is how they'd go about it.

After the rain and lightening and thunder last night we woke up to a nice warm sunny day here and Mom was ready to spend the day at home,cleaning our cages and getting some of the housework done and then taking us out on the deck for some sunshine and a soaking shower,but skin bro called her right after she had got done with cleaning our cages and feeding us and getting dad his breakfast.He wanted to take Mom and Nana out to Longhorn restaurant for lunch today and so all of Mom's plans got changed.Skin bro was down here within an hour and Mom rushed to get us all set for the day and dad some lunch and off they went!When they got to Nana's skin sis was already there and so it was the four of them going out for the day,they stopped at some of the stores after they had lunch.Skin sis had a coupon for a free Birthday dessert and she ordered the chocolate stampede cake and that was sooo good,it comes with whipped cream and Ice cream and was it huge~the four of them could barely finish it!The all had to waddle over to LL Bean and Skin sis got some new sun glasses there and then they went to Target and Mom and Nana picked up some things along with skin sis,the traffic going up was really bad as it was mass exodus to get over the Bridge for all the tourists to go home,skin bro had to drive over the Bridge to get to Wareham which was where the restaurant was and the shopping center.There were people with kayak's and bicycles on their cars and inside their cars along with all their luggage going home!Mom didn't get home til after 5:30pm and then she had to get dad some dinner and us all cleaned up again for the night!It was really hot over the Bridge,94 and it was good to get back over here again,we were in the 80's here.Mom took us all out on the deck to join my dad for dinner and they sat there til well after 7:00pm and we all went inside as it was starting to get dark.Now Mom is trying to catch us up with our visits and hopefully she won't nod off on us!
Maybe tomorrow Mom will decide to stay home with us and get us out on the deck when the sun is out there,we sure missed our showers today!
I'm wishing you all the best Labor day with lots of time to spend with your wonderful Mom to soak up some sunshine and enjoy the last warm rays of the summer sun!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Loving you always and forever,my sweet Falco!Love,Kallie

Everyone that knows me knows that mom is my favorite person in our house. I tolerate dad and he is ok when mom isn’t here but that is about the extent of it. Well every evening dad has his second dinner as mom calls it and always warms something up that is in the frig. Dad is one of those people that eats a lot but stays slim..mom says it drives her nuts he can do that LOL. He usually does this after I go to bed which is fine but if he makes something before that I become his busom buddy but mom says its not usually food I can eat but dad does share the things that are ok for me. Guess he isn’t too bad after all. “A real friend tells you when you have bird food on your beak? Leaving a vote for you…Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hello Falco~
I hope you are having a great day! Dad got home a while ago and he's taking a nap right now. He wanted to try out the new pillows!hahahahahaha He said he was just going to take a shower but he was playing with Merlin and then fell asleep. Merlin is out here with me now!
Mom went over to Petco after she dropped Ian off to get Mandy some cookies! Mandy was really happy!
Ian's store got robbed again last night and he is very upset. Some ladies took a key out of a drawer and opened it up and took 33 IPods. No one knows how they knew where to get the keys. The police were there when mom went to pick Ian up last night. They were waiting for the night crew to come in so they could watch the security camera tapes. They don't seem to have very good security there.
We are glad your mom got some swim time in today. Hard to believe that it's already September! The Halloween stuff and the Christmas lights are all out at mom's work. We haven't bought any candy yet. Mom will buy some but it's doubtful that anyone will come trick or treating here. It hasn't happened in the entire 5 years we have lived here. I suppose it's just because it's a big complex and I think maybe the kids go to neighborhoods with lots of houses!
Enjoy the day! Please give the boys my love!

  HI FALCO!!!
Today here at our house it is another day of sun,cloudy and humid day.But it has not stopped us from having some hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill and enjoying our screened porch also watching the deer and wild turkeys in the yard....Bad news though the deer are already getting their winter coats and they say that is a sure sign of an early winter..They love when Mom feeds them unsalted crackers.Even take them from her hand.From what you are telling me your Mom is sure a great foster Mom and knows how to handle those babies perfectly so they will survive..Glad to hear your Mom was able to go the pool and have her swim...Hope you are also having a very nice Labor Day....Just pecked a V4U...With many birdie wing hugs....Love, Cydney :o)

We did enjoy the fair! Dixie and his flock was kind enough to transport us and of course Miranda went with Sam I am. Hmmm, Jesse is a DYH zon? OUr conures love to pick on Elvis our zon frother. Don't know why, they even bit one of his toenails that it never grows. Mom wishes they would do everybirdy's nail like that so she wouldn't have to towel and clip us. I am the worse one when it come to that. I just scream. Miranda just laughs at me and that darn dog just gloats (I can hardly wait until mom brushes his teeth and see how much he enjoys that!)

  Day 1--Welcome to Cape Breton Island part 1
Hello everybirdie, my name is Angel Girl. I am a member of the SKY Flock, and this month's BOTM candidate. I would like to take this first day to introduce myself a little bit, and outline our month long trip to beautiful Cape Breton Island, Nova, Scotia, Canada.
I arrived at the Sky flock several years ago when my new owner became too afraid of me to keep me. I had lived with my first owner for the first five years of my life. I was born to his father's flock in the Barrie, Ontario area. I was a much loved, and pampered pet, who enjoyed the best of food, and attention. I even have a custom made large cage. When the relationship between my daddy and mommy fell apart I was posted for sale on the internet and ended up in Peterborough, Ontario,.
Why my new owner ever got me will forever be a mystery, but was, in part motivated by my Momma Deb telling her that she had wanted an African Grey for many years and was considering a clutch of Cameroons. My new owner had the very best of intentions, but lacked Parrot handling skills and experience. She was afraid of me, and when I made an escape from my cage, was unable to get me home again, and resorted to using a broom to "herd" me along. I came to hate the broom, as I was daily allowed out, but broomed back to my cage. Eventually I began to attack the broom, and the one holding it aggressively, biting and screaming my displeasure. After several months of war, my owner contacted my Momma Deb and asked her if she would take me in. My Momma Deb was very happy to go get me. She found me cowering in the back of the cage, locked in the back bedroom. I was quickly "caught up" with a towel and placed into a carrier. My cage and I were loaded up, and I was off to my new forever home.
It took a lot of work to get to the place were I trusted Momma Deb. She endured many hard bites, and one attack on that broom she was using to clean the floor. Since Momma Deb didn't give-up, I decided that I would trust her, and have since become Momma's special Girl. I have an extensive vocabulary of words, and sound effects, and I love singing my many songs. Enough about me.
This month we will be exploring Cape Breton Island, along the Cabot Trail by horse-back. IF any-birdie does not have a horse from CHUEY's BOTM Cattle Drive please let me know and we will round up one for you. We will be camping outdoors, enjoying many fun adventures, taking part in some Celtic festivals and games, and maybe even end up sparkled as my Fister Little Angel and Dixie Adler joy us for the trip. Pack up your camping gear, and ready to ride.
See everyone tomorrow as we take flight to Cape Breton. (SKY has transported our horses there by trailer).
Hugs and love
ANGEL GIRL 224627

  Message from QUEEN CHUEY
Howdy everybirdy, Queen Chuey here. I want to thank you all once more for riding the Trail with me. I had lots of fun and adventure this past month. I have a few plans for this upcoming month of September in the Castle. Seeing how well you all have mastered the art of horse riding,roping and the like, I think it only right to hold a RODEO at the Castle. The day and time will be posted both on the Calendar page and my own, also on my cousin ANGEL GIRLS PAGE.


Angel Girl is our September BOTM candidate and I know that you all will enjoy the month with her on Cape Breton Island. This adventuresome month will be narrated in true SKY FLOCK style and humor. It promises to be a fun, informative adventure. I must warn you though,that LITTLE ANGEL and her Hus-bird DIXIE will be joining you , so be prepared for some "SPARKLY" times head. ANGEL GIRL'S page #--224627.
Remember to give those horses some extra oats and molasses, they sure deserve it. Now, if I can only get these cowbird boots off, I'm gonna relax by the pool for a spell. Then enjoy some fine vittles in the Banquet Hall.
Hugs and kisses
Queen Trail Boss Chuey

  Hi, Falco
We both had such fun in the pie eating and had no idea we'd do so well. Had to look at the trophy a couple of times to realize it is a slice of pie!

Your booth was very popular and glad it racked in the $$ to help others. Loved all the pics. RaneBeau and Taz moms do such outstanding work creating 'em. SamIam always finds great music.

Warmer here, but what summer should be. We're spoiled that it has been a fairly mild summer with not too many hot or humid days.

Happy September ! Where did the summer go ? It seems as if it just started and now look ! At least the weather still says summer - we have muggy and stormy weather for today and tomorrow, luckily it moderates by Thursday which is when the kids start school. (Naturally ! Thursday is the day mom has recess duty !) At least she eases in with a short week !

I hope everyone enjoys this Labor Day ! Love Cookie

That was a fun Milonga Fair and your ring toss was greyt. I had problems loading blogs starting at 9pm ...GRRR.
It was a lazy, cool and cloudy day (71 degrees) with some rain. I took advantage and had a very long nap. Then, I was ready to go crazy and drive mom nuts ... hehehehe. That was my plan and it worked!

Oh my gosh! long time no squawk! Thank you so much for coming to Joey's page and remembering him. It is so hard to believe that a year has passed now. Mom had made some toys with his name on them and was going to give them to us on Jan. 30th, which is the anniversary of the day she got him, but since she was in Kelowna with Chicklet on that day, she kept them for Aug. 30. We each got a toy with his name on it yesterday as a special tribute to his life and have been enjoying the big demolish:) We all miss Joey dearly and his love and spirit will always echo here.

How have you been doing? We had a hot and humid Summer and are enjoying the relaxed Fall weather.

Take care!

hugs,

Jazz

Mom doesnt keep much on our frig but she does have things hanging on the side and its funny but I bother them more. I dont usually chew paper so this is unusual me chewing the grocery list.
Last night was another grand night at the milonga and so thankful for all that make this event happen for all of us. All the events were so much fun. Towards the end we had a few problems with the BC loading so that is when Suzi and I left to play some games, ride some rides and eat at the fair LOL Glad it worked well for all the events before that though for us. “If your alone, I’ll be your shadow.

Now see,I didn't even think of whether it was a girl thing or not to have one's face done up!I'm so glad I did because you were my inspiration to having it done!You look so beautiful and now that I have mine done and everyone is telling me I look like a tiger bird,I think that's so funny!I too want to keep my face painting picture up for awhile longer too!I guess Kaji and me are the daring boys this year!LOL!Today was warmish,75 and humid,with the wind blowing all over the place,first we freeze here and then just as my dad was going to take the a/c's out,it gets humid and we're supposed to be hot in the 80's this week!You are right the tourists with the kids have all departed or will finish departing tomorrow to get ready for school and then we'll get the bus loads coming for the fall leaves shows here and to enjoy the rustic quietness of the Cape in the Fall season.Let's face it this place is never quiet anymore!My dad finally got to come home around 11pm last night and we got some snuggle time with him on the couch with Mom and he'll be home all day tomorrow with Mom too,so its going to be a really nice day here with no one rushing to get out!Its supposed to rain here but its been looking like that all day,but it will probably be a rainy day all day tomorrow.I'm glad we got to join the BBQ today when we did because it looks like a rainy day tomorrow!Oh those pumpkin squares were sooo good and you should've seen Dixie at them,what a pig he is over them!Mom made my dad take the rice krispie treats into his room so we wouldn't get at them,I'm always out free,I am always flying from play gym to play gym in each of the rooms I'm allowed to go into but sometimes if something catches my eye on the counter I'll try landing there,the kitchen is a no no for us and if I want to go there I'll fly onto Mom's head so I can check things out without getting yelled at!Mom is still working on plans to get to the Parrot Palooza and if only we could come too would be the best ever!Oh Falco your ring toss was soo fantastic!We lost out on a lot of time there because of the slow constant cycling over and over again,it was so frustrating and even tonight we've been getting the 404 page not found and having to do our blogs over and over again!That Milonga was soo much fun and we really enjoyed your ring toss booth sooo much!

Hi Pretty Falco,
I'm glad it's been a good pool year for you in PA. That always makes summer so enjoyable. Momma's been busy driving Daddy back and forth. He came home yesterday and today, and wants to come home again tomorrow. It makes him happy, so Mommy makes the trips. She wants so much for Daddy to stop being depressed. She tried to get him into a place that's just down the road from us, but they said they couldn't take him....some nonsense about them not being able to get his IV antibiotics. It would have made her life a lot easier to not have to drive so much.

  Hi Falco
Well, I do believe everybirdy had fun at the Milonga County Fair last night. The pig races were very eggciting congrats Cookie and Petunia), the pie eating contest was pretty darned funny (congrats Pearl and Sky...really?) and the music was Sam and the Scruffy Bird's Band usual best. And the food!! 'Nuff said. And a new feature this year was Falco's ring toss which was very popular.

And today is the final day of Chuey's trail ride. I sure have had a wonderful time on this greyt birdy adventure, but don't forget to get on over to her page one last time for that final vote of the month.

As for myself, I am being good and bad. I have refused to get into that tiny carrier for my sunbath two days in a row now, but that thing is just too darned small. Mom will be allowed to pick up the larger carrier on Wednesday, and it's starting to look like that will be my next sun bath. However I'm still being good while she is blogging, and I am sitting on her leg right now as she types for me. That's a whole week! And I was able to attend the milonga in person last night, when I usually get consigned to my room after just a few minutes. Mom is really hoping this behavior keeps up for a while or maybe even forever! (She's dreaming, of course.)

  Hello Falco~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!
Pippo and I had a wonderful time at the fair and we don't mind losing at all. We gave it our best and I am always so very proud of my little pig!
Everything was just beautiful and I know it's the most popular Milonga we have. It's a little sad to know that summer is almost over but we have Autumn and lots of squash to look forward too!
Quite Sunday around here. Mom has the kitchen to clean up and then she'll drop Ian off at work. Most of the employees at the store have gone to PAX this weekend so he's working the whole weekend. PAX is a gaming expo they have every year up in Seattle. Ian has gone a few times but didn't go this year. He is suppose to have next Saturday off but that doesn't always happen. The good news is that he is getting lots of hours now and he really enjoys working there.
I hope you all enjoy your Sunday! Please give the boys my love!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar

  Day 31--The final Trail to Wyoming
Well, you can bet we sure had a merry time watchin' Bart, and his rustlers tryin' to get that mess off their feathers and cowboy outfits. The harder they tried, the worse mess they got themselves into. Jenny-Lynn just stood there, wings on her hips, laughin' so hard I wondered she didn't fall over. We came outta the brush and from behind them rocks to enjoy the show. Bart was cawin' and cussin' like a crow, but the more he tried, the worse it got. His wings got to stickin to his cowboy hat, then he fell again onto them ants and he was rollin like a dog with fleas.
"Ain't ya gonna help me Jenny-Lynn?" Bart pleaded as he tried in vain to get his wings off his head.
"Nah, I'm kinda enjoyin the show myself." JL sat down on a boulder and watched. The others gave up their fightin' and tryin and just stood their, sticky glop droppin' off in puddles onto their boots.
"Bart, we give up! You can try to take them cows ya gotta mind to, but we quit!" Twitch turned and looked at us, "you can shoot us if ya wanta, but we don't want your herd no more."
"You get, don't let us be seein' any sign of ya ever agin, or we'll be hangin from a rope" I finish and looked at them, grinning widely. "Now vamoose" It took but a few seconds before they began to wobble, and stumble off down the Trail, I had no doubt we'd seen the last of them. "Now Bart, what ya gotta say for yourself. You know the law of the West is hangin' but I don't have no heart for the likes of that. Instead you'll work for Lizzie, do all the dish washin, and ever she has a problem with ya, she's free to toast ya." Bart looked sadly at the mess he was in, and silently nodded his agreement. After much scrubbin in the river he came up as clean as a scoundrel like him could be. He worked quietly and nervously for Lizzie all the way to Wyoming where we cut him loose hopin' he'd learned his lesson. I'm a proud Trail Boss at how well you all learned to rope and ride, herd, and protect the herd of Long-horned Cattle all the way from Texas to Wyoming. You shot, and fought like the very best of them seasoned cow-punchers, ya ought be real proud of yourselves.
At this time I wish to thank each and everyone of you for your awesome support, both by voting daily and your encouraging words. I truly hope you all enjoyed your month long adventure on the Western Trail, and perhaps came away with a little bit of historical information too.
A very special thank you goes out to Momma Deb of the SKY FLOCK for all her photo editing, and assistance, without which I would never have been able to write such an eggciting, and fun adventure. Momma Deb is a real story-teller, and I appreciate her hard work, input and help.
Now, with my last blog posted I am heading back home for a short visit with my own Momma. I know she missed me while we rode the Trail, forged the River and fought the bad-birds. I have missed my hus-bird Mikey D too.
with love and hugs
Trail Boss Chuey

  Hi Falco
It's Popeye.
We spent the entire Saturday in lockdown. YUCK! Mom and dad went to mom's brother's house for BBQ turkey and Tri-tip. They brought home lots of leftover turkey, BBQ beans and corn on the cob. We're going to get a taste of it today. It was about ten degrees cooler in Huntington Beach so everybody sat outside and enjoyed the afternoon and evening. We were already asleep when mom and dad got home but dad came into our room and said goodnight to all of us.
Today is going to be partly cloudy, with a high of 91 and a low of 66. Mom is going to pick all the meat off the turkey bones and boil the bones for soup stock. The house is going to smell real good today.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Hi, Falco
Finally saw all the fabulous face paint pics at the Milonga. Aunt Denise outdid herself again. Pearl was thrilled to win the pie eating and Silver was happy getting that honorable mention. All the riders and their pigs rode so well too. Your ring toss booth was awesome.

Hopefully your mom gets the okay to swim laps again since summer is drawing to a close. Around here we'll still be warm for ahwile yet but know back east fall usually sets in and is too cool for swimming outside.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  What a great night !
There was so much food, so much fun and so many friends ! Couldn't have been better - Kiddo, Taz and SamIAm truly outdid themselves :)

Two days of stormy weather coming up (what a way to end vacation) - but it'll force mom to relax and mentally prepare for back to school. It looks like they'll be a/c days too - 90+ temps for the first time ALL summer !

Is it the same there ? I'd hate for aunt Arlene to miss out on the last few days of pool time ! How are the baby squirrels ? Have a peaceful Sunday :) love Cookie

  Hi Falco
Thanks for liking my face painting!Everyone thinks I look like a Tiger!LOL!
It was a freezing cold night here last night and this morning was no different!Our temperatures never got beyond 70 even though the sun was out but the wind was really blowing hard so we never got to get outside.Also the neighbor down the street was burning something in his back yard and the smoke was so thick that you couldn't see the house next door and even though our windows were shut from the cold you could still smell the smoke in our house.Burning season is over and how is it that they can burn stuff like that?Its pretty dangerous as we haven't had rain here in a while now!Mom was so cold that she wore her winter coat and slipper socks to bed last night!She needed and eggscuse to warm the house up,as she refuses to put the heat on this early,so she made a pumpkin square recipe and that's in the oven heating up the kitchen hopefully!Then she made chocolate rice krispie squares.My dad is gone to work for the Town of Barnstable's 375th birthday and fireworks which were cancelled from the 4th,we won't see him til much later tonight!
We can't wait to get to the Milonga County Fair tonight,its going to be so much fun like it always is!We are all doing something in it!Ring toss is one of our favorites and both me and my frother are good at it as we did that in our performance act when we were working birdies!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses,Loving you always and forever,my sweet Falco,Love,Kallie

  Hi Falco
Another new pic ... how cool is that? Sure, I will stop at your booth. I love both your pics. I'm very happy with my face paint. Yours and mine are my favorite colors. I hope the BC is up and running. We just started another storm 3 minutes ago.
Yes, it looks like we have a good 15 for the Parrot Palooza. There will be an e-mail going out within a week from me.
What no swimming? I hope your mom can swim in the pool at the hotel.
It's Saturday and we have some sun! In between the rain, our temps have been between 75 and 78 with humidity. That's right, you heard 78!!!! Ahhhh, it was nice to bask in the sun for a while before the next rain came. The only downside of the weekend is the bike people are back! Yes, it's the DALMAC weekend. They start in Lansing and end up on the Mackinac Bridge (3rd longest suspension bridge of 5 miles) walk on Sunday. There are three routes with 1500 bicycles on each route. Our scenic road is one of them, lucky us. Just try to get down our curvy wooded road with them riding 2,3,and sometimes 4 across! They will all be gone on Monday and back to normal around here. Meanwhile I'm enjoying what sun and warm temps we have. Then tonight is the fun Milonga Fair. See you there.
Hugs
Chyna

  Day 30--As the smoke settles
What a gun-fight it was. Bullets sailin' arrows whizzin' past ya, and of course our herd stampeeding like mad-dogs towards the River. TiPaul races Lightning past the lead and cuts sharp hopin' to turn the varmits some, Pookie let's out a YIP, and dashes round the herd to the south, turnin' the lead steers back towards our camp. Mind ya it was a better idea then havin' them chargin' long-horns divin' into the water have crazy-like. Dixie cut into the dust and thunderin' hooves, and roped a cow pullin' the rope taunt he backed her up and a number of steers took her lead and swung wide to the north, and retraced their poundin' hoof prints.. Strawberry and Sugar where slappin' their hats on the horses flanks to pick up even more speed, as the herd continued to run wild. " YEEEEHAWWW! Chyna's voice could be heard over the herd, They're turnin' back"
Well on any other day, them cows changin' their ornery minds mighta been a good idea, but right now it wasn't. A bullet whipped by, knockin' my hat clear off my head. "WOW, that was close"
"Sorry Boss," Baxter yelled, " I missed my target"
"I wanta hope so, especially if'n I'm that target" I couldn't help but laugh at all the fun we was havin'. Then I heard them cows bearing down towards us. I sprung for my horse Cutter and barrelled out to meet them Steers face-on, Sky and Jenny-Lynn kept me covered, as Sweetpepper, Little Peep, and Cydney rode out to join me. " We have to make them turn back into themselves. We'll have to hold tight and make'em veer to the right. That oughta slow them down enough to get' em back under control. With thousand pound of cows, headin straight at us, I was sure prayin' my plan would work. The lead cow came right towards us, the herd on her heals. I let off a couple shots into the air and she turned, her side brushin Cutter as she headed in the direction I had wanted.
"Yippe! It worked, I never doubted ya Boss" Little Peep yelled riding after the slowin' herd.
I whipped my forehead, counted my blessin's then rode back into the gun-fight. Jumpin clear of Cutter as I dove for the side of the chuckwagon.
"Ready Boss" BonBon whispered," Let's go gettum." I let out a whistle that brought JL, Sky, Kiddo, Jolie, Finnegan crawlin and weavin' their way to join me back of the dragon-Wagon. Each picked up a big metal bucket, and snuck off into the thick brush .I followed, my bucket in hand. Movin' silent like,we made our way to where we had Bart and his ratty bunch of rustlers pinned-down. Gettin as close as we could, we stopped, watchin a spell. Then Jenny-Lynn headed into the camp. Bart drew on her but seein' JL. he lowered his riffle. Jenny lifted her wing as if to stretch and we set sail with the special-surprise BonBon and Snowflake concocted. Honey, molasses, and red hot chili peppers land with a splat coatin' all them rustlers from head to toe. Bart stumbled, and landed square onto an ant hill. What fun!

  Hi Falco
Hoping along with your mom for the ok to wear the googles soon too!!
Today I found a neat place to perch. Its on top of the refrigerator and I can see everything from there. I tossed a few things off the refrigerator and then I chewed on moms grocery list she has hanging on the side. Mom had to rewrite a few things down again since it was chewed on. Mom checked the coupons in side and said it was good they were ok yet and gave me the “eye“. I am thinking this refrigerator perch isn’t going to last long though with mom. “If your alone, I’ll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I’ll be your shoulder. If you want a hug I’ll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I’ll be your smile. But anytime you need a friend, I’ll just be me. Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)
