  Hi Falco!
What color quartz is your mom getting? That is way cool! And better late than never! We wanted quartz too but it cost so much down here and granite is very cheap, go figure!
Today we watched the workers finish the rabitat and then they worked with dad inside chipping concrete to rearrange electric conduits. They got those done and filled in with concrete so then dad sent them out to the street to seal the outer walls. Tomorrow they will paint the outer walls cherry cola! The house was covered in concrete dust so mom had to sweep and mop twice before she let us in for our dinner. What a mess! Concrete dust is the worst!
Well, a littke nap after dinner and time for evening flying for the littke birds and another day is over! Pavarotti's parronts should be back tonite so he is still with us! Can't wait to see pics of the new kitchen! Hooe your mom puts some on your page!

That stinks that the counter people are running so far behind the install date they originally gave your mom. Sure dont blame your mom for being upset!
This morning mom was getting clothes and sheets washed. Pretty soon dad came home and had rented some machine to do some yard work out front. Mom had the door open so I could see out the other door. I kept yelling and doing the fly around till mom shut the storm door and I couldn’t see that bad machine. I could hear dad running it though! I sure was glad when dad took that thing back where ever he got it!! Mom stuck with me in the house though so that was good. “A friend like you is like a four leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Falco
That is why my mom is so reluctant to do her much needed kitchen remodel....it always takes longer than they say. A friend of hers was without her kitchen for nearly 6 months!! They ended up suing to get it finished!

Just came from Hulk's page and pecked his vote button. He will make a greyt candidate for BOTM, whether he wants to or not!! LOL. I suspect he wants to though judging by his profile pic. So I am going to track his votes the best I can starting late like this; just one of the services of the BOTM Calendar Curator.

I did end up getting my sunbath yesterday afternoon after all. Mom and I got out there about 1:30, and it was actually pleasant. I do have to complain that she was sneaky again though. I was playing in the carrier and when she saw me in there the lid came down and out we went. I had eaten the cookie bait hours before, so she did bring a nutriberry out for me. Then this morning we went out at 10:45, and it was cool enough Mom could actually sat in the sun the whole time. So we both sunbathed.

Then she came in and read to me for a bit, but much to my distress she then took off for the library and to get Gloria a bath. Why does the car need to go somewhere to get washed? Oh yeah, she doesn't have a water bowl to dip into. Poor Gloria.

  Hello Falco~
I hope you are having a great day! Dinner out with her sister sounds like a great way to spend the evening!
We are so sorry about having to wait for the counters! I think most kitchen and bath remodels never get done on time! I know your mom is so upset! We are keeping good thoughts that it all goes smoothly from here on out!
Dixie's page has been active today so they must be home. I hope we hear from them soon.
I have started a grass roots campaign for Hulk. I really hope we can get him to the castle next month. It will be fun to try it anyway. Mom posted a note on Facebook on the community page so I hope it doesn't upset anyone. I am hoping that people who don't get on BC much will take the time to vote.
I appreciate you and the boys helping out! I hope more birds will get Hulk's name out on their profile pics!
Enjoy the day sweetie and I hope it cools off for you all. We are heading into Autumn already so it's time to burn all the dust off the heaters! That always stinks!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Falco
It's Popeye.
Yesterday was a busy one for dad. After feeding us he took mom to the police station and then came home to a critter hunt. There has been no sigh of critters for over two weeks so dad decided to look in the last place he noticed them, the rear of the big entertainment center. Dad moved one section and sure enough, there were telltale signs that they had been there. They weren't there now but they sure had been there. Dad spent the rest of the afternoon cleaning up after them. He finished just in time to pick up mom.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 81 and a low of 62. The forecast for yesterday was 80 but the high was 87. Just a little off there aren't we. Not sure what's going on today.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

Mom will try to call your MOm tonight....she's going to bed early, tho, cuz they hope to leave the house by 5:30 AM...of course, given Mom T's proclivities, it'll probably be more like 6ish! They're excited, of course, and the bush is already sitting beside the driveway!

Sorry that Dixie's flock couldn't make the visit...I hope you hear from them soon...always something with families, tho...that's why we prefer the flock!

The counter thing really was annoying...sorry it won't be in place for the Moms to see, but there's always next time...Mom is looking forward to eyeballing Maxine, as she has absolutely no memory of the poor dear.

Lots to chat about, but Mom says she'll save it for the visit! Hugs to you and the whole flock!!

  Good morning Falco Sweetheart
Jesse and Falco wander through Rio, stopping to shop in the many stores along the boardwalk. Here they find designer clothes, and items from all over the World on display. Rio, ancient in historical sites keeps the two busy for two days.
The ocean is so blue that it looks painted as they watch the waves rolling in from the hillside.
"I think we should visit Armando's flock today and explore the Rain Forest for a while." Jesse says as he smiles softly at Falco.
"Great idea, but let's go for breakfast first at the patio then we can prepare to head off on the day's exploration." Falco stands up, and stretches," com' on let's go, I'm starved."
Jesse hurries to gather their blanket and taking Falco's wing-tip in his, they stroll back down the hillside to their Hotel.
"I'll go put the blanket in my room, and be right back. Why don't you find us a table with a great view and I will meet you there.?" Jesse says with a wink
Falco wanders towards the patio, as Jesse rushes to his room and tosses the blanket onto his bed. Within minutes Jesse returns to find Falco looking at jewelry in the window of a shop.
Falco turns to smile up at Jesse. "Isn't that beautiful?" she asks, pointing to a pretty necklace of gold with a pearl heart.
"Beautiful, just like you," Jesse says, taking Falco by the wing, he leads here inside the store. "Let's go take a look"
Jesse speaks tot he young sales-bird, and she quickly takes out the necklace from the window and hands it to Falco.
"For you!" Jesse says grinning happily as he watches Falco hold the necklace up in front of the mirror. " Here!" he says, taking it from her and putting it gently around her neck, doing it up carefully in the back. "PERFECT! You look wonderful"
Falco's eyes light up as she looks at her reflection. The heart sparkles with several diamonds.
"Ok, let's eat!" Jesse says laughing, as Falco leans up and kisses him on the beak. "thank-you!"
The two head off to have a quick breakfast before beginning their trip to the Rain Forest.

I'm feeling much better. Mom gave put some lettuce in a bowl last night. As soon as she put the bowl in my cage I went right to it, looked inside and hopped right back up on my perch. Then mom looked at me and said "And I thought Peppy was picky." I did not eat the lettuce. The dried greens sound good! I tried a little bit once. They were pretty yummy.

  Hi, Falco
Still hot? Yuck! How good of the sewer guys to smooth the dirt and add the grass seeds. Think watering it everyday in the early morning is the best time or is it in the evening after the sun is down? Been so long since the parronts started a lawn with seeds or added seeds to a thin lawn.

Sounds like all the kitchen stuff is getting completed. Won't be long now.

Leisurely days are the best. The parronts did a tad of shopping then came home with books from the library to read. Dad eggspecially doesn't really read much (not like mom who reads all the time) so mom was surprised when he said he found a novel to read.

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

coming together in the kitchen ! Hooray !

One more day of meetings for mom - then I have her for four days before the kids start on Tuesday . . . from what she's heard from the 3rd grade teachers, it should be a good year - they liked this group of kids last year :) I hope so, then maybe mom won't be wiped out coming home every day !

I did squawk for my tub last night. It was a hot sticky day yesterday and we have one more today before it cools down some. Hopefully it'll start to moderate . . . daddy will be home with me today - his car goes in for servicing. One of the warning lights is on :(

My mom uses a 2 step stool to get to the higher shelves, as that is a safe step stool. Dad can reach all of them ... ha ha. Oh yes, your mom needs to tell them to lower the microwave. That is too dangerous to be grabbing hot things while on a little step stool!!!
You should be able to reach while standing on the floor.
What a day it was up here, nice and sunny and then high winds and rain. It's getting really close to our moving day! I'm so eggcited.
Mom finally got in to the doctor today and is feeling a little better. It was a nasty virus. I'm taking good care of her. My last vet visit is Thursday to get my Interstate Health Certificate. Then I will be all set to go.

  Hello Falco~
I hope you had a wonderful day! Still cooler here and still rainy. There were suppose to be thunderbooms this afternoon but it never happened.
We did lots of chores today including cleaning out the pantry again. Mom has no idea why it gets so messed up. Probably from dad since he is always looking for something he can't seem to find. It is usually right in front of him!hehehehehehe
I got bored during the pantry cleaning so I did a lot of yelling. Mom kept stopping and coming over to sit with me. I finally decided to take a nap and let her finish up.
I'm very excited to hear that the counter tops will soon be installed! It's going to all be done before you know it! We didn't ask how the paint looks? Hope that went well!
Sorry Gene won't get to see your mom before he leaves. Will he be back in the Autumn? It must be cool to be able to travel like that.
Have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and sending big hugs your way!

Soon the new kitchen will be a reality!
Boy this is getting old with the too hot and humid weather and not getting out for a sunbath! I did get a bath though. Then to top it off dad was going down the trail for just a little bit so mom went with him. Yep that left me in the condo all alone but the good thing was they weren’t gone long.

Much cooler here today, so even though I refused to cooperate on this morning's attempts by Mom to get me into my outside carrier, I might just get an afternoon sunbath. It is only 75 out there right now, which after the triple digits we had last week feels downright cool!

Mom and I are sharing Lemongrass Chicken for lunch, which is one of our favorites. Mom loves the sauce and I really like the brown rice. Works for both of us.

Panther's mom, Staci, is still very sick. Mom talked to her on the phone this morning, and she sounded awful. Although at least his dad is better now, he is not a very good nurse. My dad is much better at that, but maybe that is because he has been there and is more sympathetic. Let's all send lots of healing thoughts to Aunt Staci so she can get better quick. Mom told her to go back to bed and rest before she fell down. She sounded that bad!!

  Hi Falco!!
Alright! Tourists gone, kids back in school and internet back to working! Yay! So I see you are having some hot weather up there? It has been pretty hot here too and not much rain. The city gets the rain but we don't! We had a nice rainy day last Friday which cooled things down for that day anyway but it was the first rain since June. Our pool is 94F! Not very refreshing!

How is the kitchen reno going? What kind of counters did your mom pick? We are getting ready to tear out all the floors in the main house (concrete) and pour new concrete and put on ceramic tile floors that look like wood. It is a big project and my parronts have been getting ready all summer, packing boxes and moving them to the casita and bodega. We will be moving over ourselves by the end of the month or whenever they start knocking out the floors and baseboards. What a mess it will be. Mom is getting both bathrooms redone and a new kitchen island to update the place. She wanted quartz countertops in the kitchen but turns out that they are 4 times the cost of granite here so now it will be granite. When they went to the granite warehouse to look at slabs, they found a slab from Brazil that had veins in it like a big tree and a face and body like a fairy flying so mom bought that slab (6 ft by 9 ft) and they are hanging it on the living/dining room wall for art. Should be interesting. Mom was hoping it would be done before her trip to VA but doesn't look like it. Mom goes next Wed. for two weeks for doctors and to visit her grand baby. She won't have internet up there so just when we get back on here, we will be off again! hehehe!

Hope all is well up there! I have missed you so much!

Oh, we kinda scalloped the edge of the woodwork over the closet, so Mom had to sand it down and paint it...it was ok, tho...it was getting kinda yellowish, so it was due...The wall is now a light greenish blue, and looks really cool, cuz we see it from the living room, which is blue, and it looks like it is lit up!

It's only a few days til the Moms head for Pittsbird and the new baby. They're pretty excited...the cage is set up and today Mom put a light on top of it, so it's really ready now. Hope the baby is ready for us! The Moms are excited that they're going to see you, too....lots to talk about, a bush to bring, and stuff....

It's hot and humid here now that Mom is done the painting.
..of course. So the outside work will have to wait until it is cooler. Darn those weeds anyway! We never had this much of a problem until we got new neighbors upstream...they don't do anything to control their weeds, and it all washes down our way whenever it rains. Phooey!

Well at least the kitchen will be beautiful when it is done, even if it is taking forever....must be awkward when your Mom wants to cook. Bet she is eating out a lot these days!!

Hope all is well at your nest. The Moms will be bringing our love your way in just a few days!! Whee!

Mom looked at a pic of a possum. It looked like the base of the tail was a bit bushy before going naked.
YAY for progress on the counter tops. This has got to be getting old.
Dad came home early to take apart the upstairs toilet to see if it is the cause of the dripping in the basement. Mom is quite tired of water damage.
Skinbro finished all the brush piles. The poor outdoor birds have lost the last of their hiding places. We only have power company 'skinned' evergreen trees left.

It's Popeye.
Yesterday was a lot cooler. Dad spent the morning fighting ants. He sprayed all around the outside of the house, windows, doors and anywhere he thought that ants could get in. Then he moved stuff out of the bedroom and swept the carpet and sprayed a bird safe bug killer around the bedroom. By that time Bob showed up to take mom and dad to lunch at a new fish grill. It was real good. Then they dropped Bob off at his van and went to Target to buy a new bed sheet set. Mom also bought herself a new skirt. They spent the rest of the day at the movies. They saw a really good movie called "Paper Towns". After the movie they came home and ate leftovers. Oh, yes. They played with us for a while, too.
Today will be partly cloudy and cooler, with a high of 80 and a low of 60.
Hope your day is fun.

Sounds like more areas are getting hot again. We are still in the 80s and so glad not humid else it would feel hotter. At least with warm temps plenty of pool weather for your mom.

First of all, how tall are your cabinets???? The bottom of the microwave should be pretty close to the bottom of your cabinets (maybe an inch or two higher). Sounds like they placed it up too high .... I would question them on that! At least before the tile is up and it's too late to adjust!
I sure hope Aunt Rose and Dixie can come back soon. we have two more days of appointments and then nothing but packing left to do.
We still haven't hit 80 degrees yet, maybe this weekend. I have one more vet visit on Thursday for my interstate veterinary health certificate and then all we have left to do is finish packing. It won't be long and I'll be a beach bird!

  Hi Falco
As many as 35,000 African elephants are killed by poachers every year. In the last five years, the elephant population in Tanzania—historically one of the great elephant range states—has declined by more than 60 percent. To the south, nearly half of Mozambique’s elephants have disappeared, again as a result of poaching. And in Central Africa, 65 percent of forest elephants have been killed in the span of a decade.

The elephant carnage in Africa is being driven by demand for ivory carvings and trinkets abroad, namely in China, Hong Kong, Thailand and the Philippines, but also in countries such as the United States. Truth is, the U.S. is among the largest markets for ivory. A trade that kills 96 elephants every day International trade in ivory has been banned since 1989, yet a black market enables the industry to persist, as ivory is smuggled under the table—or rather under tea leaves and other legal products stowed in shipping containers. As demand grows, it fuels the poaching on the ground.

The multi-billion dollar illegal wildlife trade draws in organized criminal syndicates that often traffic other "products," including people, drugs and arms. It draws in reasonably-armed non-state actors such as the Lord’s Resistance Army and Sudanese Janjaweed. It tempts the father of six living in a rural community with few job opportunities to turn to a life of poaching. It enriches the citified fat cat sitting in Dar es Salaam or Maputo who facilitates the deal with regional traffickers or contacts overseas. It corrupts some rangers and law enforcement officers, and endangers the rest. Its sole contribution is the decimation of species, the theft of a nation’s natural heritage and the erosion of the rule of law.

  Hi Falco
Well today mom went to the fruit stand and will be the last time till next spring now. Yep they are closing for the season so there goes all our great fruits and veggies and mom will be buying then at the grocery store now and all winter. They sure are nothing like the fruit stands produce though. Once mom made the trip to the grocery store she came home and was happy to do so. It sure is a hot and humid day here once more.By the time mom got home it was too hot to get out for a sunbath too. “A friend like you is like a four leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hello Falco~
I hope you guys are having a great day! Still raining here and it feels great!hehehehehe It's crazy that we missed it so much but it makes it feel normal!
I hope Dixie and the family are all okay. I'm so sorry they couldn't stop by. I was really looking forward to them being able to meet you!
Mom found a good deal at AT&T but dad will never leave Verizon. He says when he is out on the road he can always get service with Verizon when he couldn't with AT&T or Sprint. Mom and Jennifer might go with another carrier and just leave dad and Ian on Verizon. Right now our bill is $300 a month! I know! Dad can be ridiculous when it comes to his beloved cell Phone!hehehehehe
So you and Jesse are off to Brazil! Very cool! You could have a Rio kind of adventure! That would be so much fun!
I hope you have a lovely evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Falco
Now we are worried about Aunt Rose. I hope she and the flock are OK. We will email her.

Well, I got out for my sunbath by 9:30, but it was probably not necessary to go that early. The cool down continues with a high of only 80 today! It was quite pleasant outside, and Mom even sat in the sun for a little while. And the nice lady with the two little white dogs came by and said hi. Ms Gardenia Tree is covered in blooms, so Mom did move over and sit right under two freshly opened blossoms and enjoyed them while reading her kindle.

Then she decided not to go to the gym for zumba, and I am sure it was because she wanted to be with me and had nothing to do with the new book she downloaded on that kindle today. Hmmm, should I be jealous of her kindle? I do know when I try to chew on it, she won't let me. I find that very selfish on her part, don't you?

And we are having roast beef wraps for lunch, but that darned Dad did in fact pick up spinach for my mom yesterday. So you just know there will be green stuff in there. Oh well, I just spit it out on her shoulder anyway.

  Hi Falco
It's Popeye.
We're not completely sure what went on yesterday. For some reason mom was in a really bad mood. Poor dad. No matter what he did, it wasn't right. Dad finally took mom to the police station, where she had an even worse day but dad got floors mopped and even installed some new radio antennas on his car. By the time dad picked up mom the weather had cooled off so things were better. Dad grilled lamb chops and cooked some lima beans for dinner and had home made brownies for dissert.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 83 and a low of 62. Bob is dropping by later this morning and they all are going to lunch.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

Come visit me, ALEX, POPEYE, SAWYER, BLUE & JEWEL, GINGER & CALICO.

  Hi Falco
Is mom able to enjoy the kitchen at all yet?
My mom wants to know what color the groundhog is. She misses the 'tribe' of tawny colored ones that lived under the powerlines at a secondary intersection. There has been a lot of construction there the last few years, so she thinks they've moved.
Did mom ask you about a critter she saw in the dark one morning? She could only see a silhouette. Rodent looking, sharp nose, high rump, the tail looked to be short and somewhat bushy. Scooted across the street to a tree, then thru the neighbor's yard. My mom thinks it was a possum and she only saw the base of the tail.
Into heat today, 87 and humid so high 80s to 90 heat index.

  Dearest Ms Falco & aunt Arlene, from Jenny & us...
We have Summer returning to our area for about a week, not a big deal, but the A/C came on about 7:00 AM for the first time in nearly three weeks! With us it is the same old story, dad is running hopelessly behind his normal duties (but he is caring for us), he will do anything to make sure we are fed, watered, and properly loved, he is all we have, and we are all he has, our own private entertainment committee! Dad would love to hold one of the owlets aunt Arlene speaks of, but he is aware they do not just bite like Jenny would, they rip and tear flesh, but oh so beautiful! Have a great day dear BC friends, and as usual, give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Love always from Jenny & our Dallas family

PS~Daddy loves the owl lets, so darn cute....

Come visit me, King Ziggy~Thanks for your votes & this high honor, Jen Lynn-I want to always look pretty, loving life, Limon Dallas~Love my home & still see my old mom, The Raiders~Happy New Year from the team in 2014!!, Angel Christy-I'm at my Vet's office, very curious...., LaLo Lee~Just hanging with my daddy in the kitchen & Mr Flash~Summer at the McAviay.

  Good morning from Brazil
Yes, if you want the picture, you can pick it up.

Jesse yawns and smiles as he realizes it is the first day in Brazil. HE climbs down from his perch and heads outside into the warm Tropical sunshine. HE can hear the roar of the ocean waves hitting the beach in the distance and the laughter of birdies already playing in the surf early int he morning. He picks up his towel to head to the beach, then decides to stop and knock on Falco's door to see if she is up yet. To his surprise he finds a note tacked to her door.
"Gone to the Beach with Armando and his family"
Everybirdie gets up early in South America" Jesse laughs as he heads to the water to find his friends. As he rounds the last bend in the lush pathway he sees Falco and some of the others involved in a fast game of beach volleyball. HE stops to watch for a moment to get Falco's attention.
As she hits the ball smoothly over the net, she sees Jesse watching and waves, then heads to join in.
"I thought you were gonna sleep all day?" she teases him.
"I was up for hours, but wanted to let you sleep in" he says blushing for being last to make it to the beach.
" Come on, let's go for a swim, then we can go have breakfast" Falco says, taking Jesse's wing tip in hers as they walk in the soft, warm sand to the towards the beautiful blue water's edge.
"Sounds like a great plan." Jesse says as he watches the waves rolling softly into the shore. HE smiles widely, so happy to be here, sharing this trip with Falco.
"Race ya!" she calls, taking off to dive into he water.
"Wait for me!" Jesse laughs, racing after her. Falco uses her wings to splash Jesse with water as he wades in carefully.
Both birds laugh happily as they play, and swim in the warm ocean. After a long swim, they wade back into the shore, picking up their towels from the sand.
"Ok, let's eat and then we can explore Rio." Falco smiles at Jesse.

Come visit me, Mr and Mrs Sky and BB Thrift, Little Angel, jesse & Queen Sweetie, Thank-you friends for BOTM.
