  Hi Falco
You don't have to apologize for being so short,Mom and all of us here can sure understand all of the work that goes into the holidays and getting ready for it and Mom sure knows just how egghausting it is to be baking all day long and then have to deal with the clean up of everything afterwards!Oh I so can imagine how beak watering good your house smells with all those Italian goodies being baked there and those peanut butter blossoms really sound awesome too!
Can you believe that we woke up this morning to snow? It was even covering our deck but it soon went away and is kind of drizzly out there and cold at 36 degrees.Mom was too tired last night to make our bean mix up so we had to wait for her to cook another batch up for us this morning and instead of bean mix(she ran out of it)she made us pastene pasta with eggs in it and oh was that sooo good! I chowed my bowl down in a heart beat and Mario,who hasn't had any interest in food for a week now or more came right down even before Mom could put the bowl down for him and he chowed right down!Mom got up at 4:50am this morning to give skin bro a wake up call and then went right back to bed and never got up til near nine and we were all waiting on her!But it was worth the wait as she gave us such a nice warm breakfast!Mom is going to spend the day catching up with the house chores and cleaning our cages good as she was out all day yesterday and then she's going to start wrapping presents for her sisters family and get that all done so she can just relax and get ready to start baking some things to bring to Nana's for Christmas.So far the forecasts here are for heavy rains and lots of it as much as 2 inches in some places or a little more.We don't mind the rain as long as its not freezing rain to take our daddy away from us on Christmas day.
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,sweet Falco,Love Kallie

  Hi Falco
yes we are getting small toys each day. mom is very happy that every present she gives me i am destroying almost immediately because for about 1-1/2 years i didn't touch any of my toys. Boo Boo is very busy hiding every sparkly bead mom gives her a few of which have been hidden in moms tennis shoes.

mom was reading something very interesting today. a group of scientists from the netherlands have developed a mushroom that eats only plastic. they developed this to try and take care of the huge amounts of discarded plastics floating around in giant floating piles in our oceans today. most of the discarded plastics are from the united states.. the scientists say it will be many years of testing before they can determine if the plastic eating mushroom would be edible by humans. since many plastics are now used in shampoos and makeup mom had a disturbing thought. as a young girl in the 50s she saw a movie called attack of the mushroom people. it was about a group of travelers who had been stranded on this island with no food. they found these delicious mushrooms that staved off their hunger but the more they ate the faster they actually turned into mushrooms themselves. mom was terrified to eat any mushrooms for fear she would turn into one. now she has to worry if the mushrooms will attack her face because of the plastic in the makeup or attach themselves to moms hair because of the plastic in the shampoo. what if the plastic eating mushrooms form a gang and liberate the poor mushrooms grown on mushroom farms because they aren't being treated humanely. at least mom feels some sense of hope that some are trying to get rid of the huge piles of plastic trash and maybe being a mushroom might not be such a bad deal.

Mom and I don't know what peanut butter blossom cookies are, but since we both love anything peanut they sound very yummy! Maybe your mom would like to share the recipe?

Well, I am in with my mom dictating my blogs, but I suspect I will be banished back to my room shortly. No! I have not bitten her again, but I am climbing all over the desk and chewing on medical paperwork, which is a no no. She doesn't mind when I tunnel under it, but I can't seem to control my beak!

We did not have Chicken Bowl for dinner last night. Dad's company had their Christmas luncheon yesterday, and he brought home a bunch of scalloped potatoes that were left over and very good. Mom loves those, and it is one of the few things she has never successfully made. So she and Dad scarfed taters for dinner (I got some too!), and then they went to Chicken Bowl for lunch after grocery shopping this morning. I do love me some Chicken Bowl for lunch. Mmmmmm!

Still not warm enough for a sunbath today, but the weather geeks are calling for 73 tomorrow, and upper 70s on Monday and Tuesday. I call that sunbathing weather, and I bet I get outside. Unfortunately I will probably also get a nail trim some time in the next few days. Darn it! There always seems to be a down side to the up side!

  Hello Falco~
I hope you are having a great day! I spent time in the bedroom this morning when mom was out. I was really happy to see her and to get out to my play cage for a while.
It's really stormy here today and the flag out front are blowing like crazy! It looks really pretty and I am very glad to be inside instead of outside!
Mom did not see the blackbird this morning. The cage is still up on the rack in the garden so they think he just went out on his own. Mom hopes that is what happened!
Mom is off to bed so I will say goodbye for now!

It's Popeye.
Yesterday dad put the nest boxes back on Blue and Jewel's and Skye and Rio's cages. Guess we're going to hear the pitter patter of little claws again soon. After that mom and dad went to WalMart. They picked up another McSandwitch maker and found some "Good and Plenty" candy. Dad hasn't had it in a million years. They also went to Costco and got some fresh fish for dinner. Mom took two big fillets and baked them. Then made a lemon Caper Butter sauce to spoon over them. Dad cooked some rice and steamed some squash. Guess they liked it cuz it's all gone now.
Today mom and dad have a play to see in Los Angeles so they'll be gone all afternoon.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 66 and the low will be 50.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,

ahhhh . . . I am so excited about mom's vacation that I woke up extra early today ! From under my cover I started calling "hii" :) Since mom and dad are heading to the g'parronts today, I'll nap and catch up on my sleep then - After my nap I'll watch the wild birds outside or look at all my cards from my friends that mom hung on the hallway door where I can see :)

Mom met a couple friends for dinner last night and had to re-tuck me in when she came home - with kisses of course !

Have a wonderful day :) love Cookie

Our presents (not Santa Birds) have been under the tree for days now. I have been keeping track and I have more than mom does ... LOL!
I bet those squirrels thought .... look at that tree cleaning up our area, this is a strange place for sure ... hehehehe!
What are you having for Christmas Eve? We are having spiral ham for the dinner with Jess & Matt.
It was clean Chyna's condo day. I don't like that! I worked hard to get it that way.
At least we saw the sun again today! Looks like 3 more days of partial sun and then 3 days of snow. It will even snow on Christmas.
Better get the peppermint hot chocolate ready.

It was a bright sunny morning here and the temperatures were 35 and it was freezing.Mom got us up early again and cleaned our cages,fed us and then dad helped Mom put the trash she collected in her car along with some other things and then she collected Dixie and got him in his carrier and wrapped him up In a warm blanket and put him in the car that dad had already warmed up for Mom,and off to Nana's they went.Dixie got to stay with our cousin Trixie II while Mom and Nana went to the dump,Post Office,then to Walmart,Michaels,and Shaws,then they went to Stop&Shop and got a few things there and then by the time they got back to Nana's house it was 4 O'clock and getting dark.Mom got all the groceries loaded in her car and then came back and got Dixie and they came home where Mom had to get Dad some dinner,clean out our cages,feed us our snack and put all the groceries away.While Mom was gone all day my dad put the purple lights in the dining room window and do they look just awesome!

Yes it does get done eventually though it doesnt feel like it at the time.
Today mom was messing with making a card she has been working on for a while after she got her house work all done. Then this evening she decided to print out on this thinner paper with a saying on it. The first one came out fine but the second one got stuck in the printer! Mom worked for a good while and then dad came with all his tools to see what he could do with it. After about 3 hours dad got the paper out of the rollers and plugged back in. He ran one paper thru and it was a bit dirty and at this point mom isn’t about to even try it again!!

  Hi, Falco
We didn't get any scraps from the wrapping as mom used 'em all. There's still more to wrap so maybe then she'll have bits too small for anything. Love to chew on paper.

Good to use that ghillie suit to keep warmish and not dirty the new coat. Hopefully the 19 squirrels staying for the winter will thrive and assume they'll get released in spring.

Busy, busy at mom's work and eggspect this w/e will be hectic and hope enough workers are scheduled.

Well, I am happy to report that I have been a good boy so far today, and no biting since yesterday's disaster. Now I am in my room for another reason altogether. I took a bath in my water bowl, and Mom wants me in the warmest room in the house till I dry off. I keep calling her, but I want her to come in here not for me to leave. Not working out too well so far.

Mom went to the gym this morning, and since she was verrry sweaty when she got home after training and zumba she needed a shower. However she came in to sit with me first, since I was calling her. She had to wear her summer bathrobe too, since her warm winter one is bright red and I would freak out immediately. I wonder why so many of us hate the color red? It must be something dangerous in the wild that is bred into our feathers. Anyway I got Mom time, then she got her shower and then I got more Mom time. Now I just need to dry off!

  Hello Falco~
I hope you are having a great day! I'm watching mom do notes while the laundry is going. Mandy had a few accidents this morning. One was mom's own fault because when she turned the rug cleaner on Mandy got scared and peed in the hallway! Mom forgot to put her in the bedroom! She doesn't like those machines any better than I do!!hehehehe
That black bird is still in the store. They hired a guy to bring a cage in to try to trap him but he doesn't seem to be interested in what is in it! Mom told them they should try millet or peanuts(like your mom suggested)! They put it up on a rack where the indoor hanging plants are since that is where he is hanging out. There is an indoor fountain so he is staying close to that. Mom was looking at him and he was clicking at her. She clicked back to him but I guess her black bird speak is not good cause he just ignored her! She had the freight guys leave the garden doors open for a while but he doesn't seem interested in going out. He knows where the bird seed is in the garden and in the pet center so I guess he has figured out a way to eat. Hopefully when the store is full of people today he will go into the cage so they can take him outside. Mom will look for him again tonight.
I hope you enjoy the day!!

Not sure where Tyler is myself. Mama and Dad are both from NJ, and live here in WV for their jobs.

It's here ! TGIF has a whole new meaning today ! Mom has just hours to go till vacation ! Now, I've got plans for this vacation and they include lots of treats and head rubs, maybe a splash and of course lots of games and songs :)

Mom did run out last night leaving me and dad for a few minutes - she was out of milk. She came back with not only milk though, she came back with a strawberry ! ! ! Told you I was being a good boy !

Sounds like an interestingly fun day for aunt Arlene at the museum - I know over the holidays the school groups won't be through, but do lots of families take advantage ?

Have a wonderful and peaceful day ! love Cookie

That was a busy day at the museum. Sounds interesting too.
Glad all is ready for Christmas at your house. We got to relax today as nothing had to be done ... felt good.
I think tomorrow will just be laundry day and cleaning my condo day.
I'm so ready to sink my beak on those family gifts under the tree. but, I'm trying to be good ... less than a week to go.
I saw the sun for an hour today. It made all the snow on the trees and ground look like crystals, very pretty. I don't know why it won't stay. The snow will be back for sure on Tuesday. I hope the sun comes back too. It stays away much too long!

  Hi Falco
well we got a light dusting of snow last night. it has melted everywhere else but our yard.

When the forest suddenly gets quiet and birds take flight, it might be time to worry about a brewing storm.

scientists stumbled on the finding when they were studying golden-winged warblers—small birds that weigh less than a third of an ounce. the team was testing if the birds could carry tiny backpack transmitters.The warblers are the smallest species ever tracked, and when the researchers retrieved the transmitters from five birds, they discovered something strange: The birds had all moved away from their breeding grounds a day before the storm, flying nearly 1,000 miles—even though the tornado was still hundreds of miles away.

The researchers think that the birds were sensing infrasound—acoustic waves that occur at frequencies below 20 hertz. While humans can’t hear such a low level of sound, it’s known that birds and other animals can.

is it time to fire the meteorologists and start looking to the sky for storm predictions? Not quite yet.“Birds are really good at predicting storms, but they’re not a good replacement for satellites and radar, There is one situation that birds could beat humans: “If you were all alone in the forest and all the birds left, you should be worried about it.”

When storms force birds to flee, it can put pressure on their ability to breed. As storms become more powerful and frequent with climate change, those disruptions will grow.“They wouldn’t do this with a normal thunderstorm, but if it comes to big storms arriving every year and birds losing four to five days of breeding season, it would be a big problem for their conservation,”
Golden-winged warblers have suffered one of the steepest population drops of any songbird species in the past 45 years, according to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Conservationists are working on a plan to stop the decline and grow the population 50 percent by 2050.

That is cute about the guys chasing your mom. My mom says about the same thing too LOL
Mom thought she was going to get some things done here today but just when she got her cleaning done and started the next project skin sis called. She had went out to start her car to go to the store and it wouldn’t start so mom and dad went over with the battery charger. It started pretty quick and she left it run a while and went to the store and it seems ok. Think the problem was not running it for a while cause they were using BIL car. Mom did come home and did a few more things but the rest are on the list for tomorrow now.

How interesting those tours must be when there are so many people and kids there all at once taking tours and trying to compare things!That must've been fun for your sweet Momma too to have those two male docents trailing her to learn how its all done!
How maddening it must be to have to reschedule the furnace appointment for Aunt Gin's house!Especially when you are all set for it on the day it was scheduled to be done!
This morning was a bright sunny morning and it lasted throughout most of the day here the temperatures were as high as 44 but it was still pretty chilly out there.They are talking a storm here for us on Christmas Eve and Mom is so hoping that it won't be snow or freezing rain.We are so looking forward to having Christmas at Nana's and chowing down some of that awesome food they will be making and baking!Mom spent the day cleaning the corner of her bedroom where she just dumps all the stuff she buys thinking that the next day she'll put everything back where it belongs but it never happens,so she finally got it done today and got some things to throw out,she cleaned out the closet also but it sure doesn't even look like she touched it!Mom collected the trash and got that ready to go in the car for tomorrow for the dump and then she's going to take Nana on some last minute errands for Christmas and a few other things and hopefully she'll be home before dark to be with us!
Mom has to stay awake til 11:00pm tonight as she told skin bro she would give him a wake up call so he could get at least 4 hours sleep before heading back out to work,he's so afraid of going to sleep and missing going to work and losing the job,instead of coming home this morning and going to bed he went to work for a landscaper and didn't get back from there til well after 8 tonight.He's been staying awake 24/7 for the last several weeks and Mom is so afraid he'll crash up and fall asleep at the wheel,that is her one big worry about him right now.
We are wishing your sweet Momma a greyt time out to dinner with her sister!

Yup, the latches will help keep the cabinet doors from opening if an earthquake and keep stuff from falling out or possibly on anyone if nearby. It is kinda annoying at first but one gets used to having to open the latches every time.

Must be awesome to have so many tours and spreading the knowledge to the young. Good to have the trainees as well and hopefully soon they'll be heading up tours of their own.

Mom got some wrapping done today and a few cards too. So looking more festive under the tree and won't be having cards show up late, heehee.

  Hello Falco~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I supervised while mom climbed behind the dryer to clean out all that icky stuff that gets back there. She meant to do it a while ago but didn't get to it. She does the fridge and the dryer every few months just to keep those dust bunnies at bay! The dryer and the washer are in a closet so the dust tends to build up back there. Mom takes the hoses off and vacuums them out and mops the floor. She sure did look goofy climbing back over the washer!
It nice that Aunt Marge has had such a long life. Mom has a friend who just retired and her mother is in her 90's. It's wonderful that she will not have to move anywhere and it's awesome that people will be there to help her out. We are glad that she gets visitors too. When mom's grandma had to go into a facility there was someone there everyday. They even took her laundry home instead of letting the place do it. Grandma didn't really know who anyone was for the longest time but the last night mom stopped by to see her on her way to work, she knew who mom was! She passed away that evening. Did I ever tell you that grandma was a teacher too? She taught grade school and taught braille student also. She had lost her sight due to some fever and learned braille. She recovered most of her sight but still liked to read in braille.
Well I didn't mean to yammer on and on!! We sure hope your mom has a wonderful time at dinner!!

Short blog today, because I am afraid Mom is pretty upset with me. I bit her again today, and needless to say I am in time out now. It bled which is never good, and since I nailed her hand (and no warning again!) she doesn't like typing much. Hopefully by this afternoon I will be forgiven.

  Hi Falco
It's Popeye.
Sorry we weren't on the BC yesterday. Mom and dad got up early and left the house. They went to a funeral for a friend. One of the people in dad's police volunteer group passed away. She had been a volunteer for 25 years. The ceremony was packed. Everyone, including the Chief of Police and the entire command staff was there. There were so many people that more chairs had to be set up outside the chapel. After the ceremony there was a reception held at a nearby banquet hall. The room was filled. There was not an empty table to be found. There was a full buffet of food and two tables of disserts. Dad says that he thinks the police dept. helped pay for the reception. Dad said that you never really know how many friends you have until your funeral.
After the reception mom and dad went to the Magnolia Bird Farm for our food and by the time they got home it was way past our bedtime. Mom and dad were both so full from the buffet that they didn't fix any dinner for themselves.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 65 and a low of 47. Dad has to fill up the car with gas cuz they have a play to go to on Saturday.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye.

  Dearest Popeye pal, from Jenny
Before our visiting nurse got here yesterday, dad addressed and prepped 30 Christmas Cards, something we have always loved to do, but we have forgotten how time consuming this labor of love can be! Not to worry, we will send all 50 cards sooner or later, bear with us! We are having a very normal Winter day in the December MidWest, a little overcast, slightly below freezing, but pretty nice overall! LaLo is slowing daddy down a little, that little heifer can't speak a word, but she is so sweet, she don't have to, she can make a certain noise and dad comes a running, she really is the sweetest bird that has ever lived here, much like Angel Christy! Have a greyt day, and give my love to all in your happy Christmas home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love on throwback Thursday, from Jenny & our Dallas family

I hope it does not cost much to get your roof fixed so you can get the cabinets done. Mom wants to get new cabinets in the kitchen to but first she needs to also get the roof repaired over the bird room. Mom say when you own a house there is always something to fix or repair especially if it is not new which ours in not. Mom and I are really enjoying Peppino's tour of Pittsburgh since mom is originally from PA. Aunt Robin did a fantastic job on making your picture. Have a good day!

Hugs

  Hey Falco,
The brownie goodie bags in Laka's gallery are for all the players to take home but right now we got the real deal in front of us on the buffet table.

Pookie says I'm so full and when the warm ocean breeze hits him his eyelids gets very very heavy that soon he's asleep on his perch snoring.

Thanks for the page number but its easier for mom to type in the birds name.

Hugs and a vote for you.

Love,

Pookie

HAPPY HUMPDAY
tonight mom had her hair in a pony tail while she cooked dinner and then left her hair like that when she got me out for play time. i really like that short stubby pony tail and got a hold of it and was yanking it back and forth. that also prevented mom from falling asleep

love Cori

  Hi Falco
Sad news on TV tonight. It was a beautiful eagle, who was found on the ground. The animal rehab people got him but couldn't save him. He had eaten something that was poisoned. He died that night. He or she was a beauty.
Yay, you have your tree now! Got a package today and mom put it under the tree. You should get one on Saturday.
Glad to hear that Daisy is doing good at class. Will we be invited to her graduation?
Oh wow, a kitchen re-do will be so nice. That makes my mom crazy ... she loves remodeling. She wants to tackle the upstairs bathroom next but, still waiting on that.
Well, we are back to cold and snow. Looks like a good peppermint hot chocolate day around here. I can drink it while watching dad plow the snow. He must like to do that cause he does it a lot ... must be fun. I just don't see it.
Hugs
Chyna

Come visit me, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  Hi Falco
This morning was a drab dismal day with pouring rain early in the morning and then the sun came out nicely for a short period of time,then it went back to being miserable and very foggy with the temperatures at 45, the highs were to be 50 and the lows are to be 35.Mom got us up early and cleaned our cages and gave us some Madagascar mix and pellets as she ran out of our bean mix,then skin sis came by and they took off for zumba class and then after they got out from there they went to Nana's and skin bro met them there and they went over the Bridge to Wareham to celebrate Nana's birthday at LongHorn restaurant as the skin sibs wanted to take her out.Mom had shrimp and lobster soup as did Nana and a mixed green salad,then after they were done skin sis ordered the chocolate stampede cake for Nana's birthday and was that ever good.Then they went to Target and did some shopping there,then went back to The Dollar Tree in Wareham as ours was set fire to in Falmouth,then they went back to Nana's and dropped skin bro off as he had to be somewhere for a job and they went to Marshall's and got more shopping done there.By the time they got back to Nana's it was well past 5:00pm,so skin sis drove Mom back home and she got dad a tv dinner as she was too tired to cook and it was too late to take something out,then she cleaned our cages,dad had already gave us our snacks and filled our pellet dishes and put the light on for for us and we were screaming for Mom to close our curtains.We hate seeing the darkness outside,its so scary to us!After Mom put the things she got away and served dad his dinner,she sat down and made out more cards to get in the mail in the morning.
Its good to hear that Daisy is doing so well and that the trainer is giving your sweet Mom some tips to keep Polly from feeling left out!We too are hoping that the porch isn't going to cost too much to fix so your sweet Momma can get her cabinets resurfaced!I guess your cabinets are really old if they date back to the 50's!Mom had her whole kitchen redone cabinets,sink and all!And she got all granite countertops and got rid of all the formica ones that were warped and coming up.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses my sweet Falco!Loving you always and forever,Kallie

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

  Hi Falco
That would be nice if mom could get her cabinets done too and maybe if she sits on Santas lap he will bring them if she asks ...that sure would be nice!
Mom kept telling dad the commode upstairs was running sometimes but he didn’t listen to mom but today he heard it and was in a hurry then to fix it. Yep the water and sewage bill has been higher so that would be a sign alright but its hard for mom to convince dad of these things. Of course I was in lock down while mom had to clean the overhead commode vanity out and then put everything back once dad was done. She said it needed a good cleaning any way so guess that is one way to look at it LOL.

  Hi, Falco
We wondered who the other fids were caroling since it didn't appear to be your flock (none looked like Willie) so one must be SamIam since the pic was from Aunt Robin and so cute.

That is good to get all the tips to help Daisy and not eggclude well behaved Polly. Hopefully more time with her will bring her along.

Recently our dad put new baby safety latches in our upper cabinets. For earthquake prevention. Hopefully your mom will have the $$ to update those old 50s cabinet doors.

A tad more rain today. Was heavy for a lil while then was over within a couple of hours.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.
