  Hi Hulk... Tipaul here
Everything is perfect today! We got Mom all to ourselves. We got our internet working faster than it did before, and we are going to party while Mom spends the day with us! She got a special request from her former dance teacher, who has incurable cancer... she wants pictures of Mom with some of us. Mom is going to make her a video of us in the bird room and hopes to get some of us in action. Marley will usually dance, and I will join in, so it should be a fun filled day. The only thing that is against us is the weather, and it is freezing rain outside. Not good, but Mom only has to go to the village later on, and that is an easy enough drive. you have a greyt day. Sending hugs from Quebec.

  Hi Hulk
Hope mom's cookies are things you get to sample, too.
Happy Hanukkah to those who celebrate.
Last night at dog class, Daisy was a bit vocal, but not too bad. The trainer gave mom more tips to work with her and not let Polly feel left out.
Today mom has to go to her friend's house when the furnace guys come to fix it. Her friend is involved with getting her mom into hospice care, and has to sign papers and talk to the hospice people today.
We haven't heard from the guy who looked at the porch roof yet, so we still don't know how much it will cost to fix it. Mom is hoping it won't be too much, so she can still get the kitchen cabinets refaced or replaced. They are the original ones from the 50s, we think, and the hardware on them is shot. Some don't close well at all, and one of them lost the latch, which can't be found any more, since it's not sold anywhere.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Willie

Thanks for your votes and visits daily! I love hearing from everybirdie.
Yesterday we did everything Heinz, today we are moving to Frick. He was one of those robber baron guys, but he gave back some to the city. Not like Andrew Carnegie, who gave back a ton, but still...
Henry Clay Frick gave Pittsburgh Frick Park, a beautiful space in the eastern part of the city with tennis courts, many playgrounds, walking trails, a nature center, a running track, an exercise track, a bowling green, as well as many picnic pavilions. In my pics today, the fifth and sixth ones are of Frick Art museum, right across from the bowling greens of the park. The Museum isn't part of the park, though. It's a small museum with many beautiful paintings. In a neighboring block is Clayton, a Frick city mansion. One of the pics is the garage. A friend of mom's is curator of the cars. The mansion itself is huge, the rooms are incredible, there is great woodwork inside. Right now it's decked out for the holidays. I don't know if you can see it, but one of the pics shows the staircase draped in greens. There are tours conducted there when people request them.
I hope you are still enjoying your tour of Pittsburgh. I'm having fun bringing to you all the great areas of the city. Hope also that you are having a great day! Hugs, Peppino

  Hi, Hulk
Did your mom find the list of free Kindle books? Forgot to mention that ours always searches while on the puter so it might be different when using the Kindle itself. Via puter it saves it and then downloads next time the Kindle is on.

Maybe someone at your mom's work adjusted the temp of the heat. No comfy if too warm when working and know not good for puters either.

More rain here yesterday and fortunately it began after mom, skinsis and the grand were done shopping even though they braved the mall and then another shopping center of several stores. Mom will be out shopping with dad today and then hope that's that.

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

  This time BooBoo us paying attention in the outfield and manages to get the ball and throw it in.
But it was too late. Sugar steps on the home plate doing her wiggle dance followed by Kiddo and Gus lands on third base as Laka has the ball.
So far no out and 2 runs!
Raffi is up next and he saunters to the plate wiggling his hips getting them loose for the big kick.
Laka pitches the ball and its a pop fly and Falco jumps up and catches the ball in her wing tips. Yay yells her team !!
Aww shucks as Raffi kicks the sand and goes back to home plate.
Now it's Dixie's turn. He does a little jiggle and Laka pitches the ball and he kicks it way out to centerfield where no birdie is.
Dixie runs like the wind and so does Gus. Yeah !! Gus jumps on the home plate and everybody yells go Dixie go Dixie!!! BooBoo and Kacey are trynna get the ball as it was between them both do lots of sand in between them both.
Dixie makes it around the world !!!
Yay!!! His team cheers then they hear moms whistle. Break time !!!
Every birdie yells about time !! It was getting hot. They all rush the coolers for the ice cold juice boxes and juice cans.
Angel Sallykins smiles down as she sits with Cookie telling him he did a good job. :)

  Hey Hulk,
Well it's a nice sun shiney day for part 2 of kickball.
Kacey was on second base and she walks to second base as every birdie gets in place.
Sugar is joining the outfield team as she wants to be first at bat soon.
Chipper pitches the ball and Cookie Haines kicks it out to left field where Sugar is and the ball happens to land in her wings as she watches the game. Cookie runs to first base but realizes that Sugar caught his ball then shrugs his shoulders and walks back to his team mates.
Yeah Sugar her team yells, 2 outs, one more!!
So now it's BooBoos turn and because she is little Pookie tells everyone to come in closer.
BooBoo just smiles as Chipper pitches the ball and she kicks it over the guys that came in closer. BooBoo is running to first base as fast as her little legs would go!!
The ball is still in the air and lands in Sugars wings again! She is as much surprised as any birdie else as she didnt hear Pookie tell everyone to move in closer.
That's 3 outs!!! Our turn!! Pookie says you can kick first since you caught 2 balls. :)
Pookie eggsplains where she wants to aim the ball and run to first base over there by Chyna and run like the wind girl! Okay says Sugar, I can do this, I can do this. She tells herself.

Laka pitches the ball and Sugar gets tangled legs and falls down. Pookie rushed over to see if she was okay but she was more embarrassed than anything else.
Pookie says no, it's okay your doing good, that's how we all learned too and he smiles at her and hands her a wing. Shall we try this again ? She grabs his wing and says ooh yes!!
Laka gets the nod and pitches the ball and Sugar kicks it way out to right field and she astonished that she could even kick it that far. She stands there watching the ball fly high in the air as everyone else.
Pookie yells Sugar!!! Run to first base !! She snaps out of her daze and says ooh yes and she runs like the wind. She's safe on first!! Yes everyone yells, good going Sugar!!!
Next up is Kiddo and he stretches a little warm up before getting up to the plate.
Laka pitches the ball and he kicks it and its a pop fly into left field where BooBoo is picking flowers as she wasnt paying attention. Everyone yells BooBoo get the ball!!!
BooBoo jumps up as she realizes the game is on!!
Sugar runs to second and Kiddo lands on first base before the ball gets to home plate. Yay !!!! Kiddos team yells. :)
Next up is Gus, a heavy hitter and he too warms up before getting to home plate.
Laka pitches the ball and its a slider!! Gus taps the ball and runs like it was a bunt! Is that even allowed ?? Oh we'll its beach kick ball!
Sugar makes it on third and Kiddo is on second and Gus makes it to first and the bases are full.
Pookie is up next and he too stretches and shows his kicks telling the other team it's going over there.
Laka pitches the ball and its a pop fly!! He lied with his feet says Cori!!
This time BooBoo us paying attention in the outfield and manages

  Hi Hulk
This morning was a dull gray dismal day here no sun at all,the temperatures got up to 43 and it was not that warm but not that cold either.Mom got us up fairly early and cleaned our cages and then got ready to go take Nana out for her birthday lunch as Mom's sister was supposed to go with them but at the last minute she said she couldn't make it and she'd be down later on so Mom and Nana ran some errands before they went to lunch,they went to Christmas Tree Shop and checked out PetCo and then went to eat at the 99 Club where they both got a classic hamburger with butternut squash instead of the fries and coleslaw.They checked out the Gap and went to the post office and then came back to Nana's as it was getting dark and Mom didn't want to get stuck driving in the darkness,which it was nearly dark by the time she got into our driveway.Dad had come home first and he put our light on and gave us our snacks which made us happy while Mom made fresh sandwiches for dad's lunch for tomorrow and cleaned our cages for the night!Mom and dad finally got our tree up last night and its really beautiful and now we have something pretty to look at when we go in the tv room!Mom is going to be gone all day tomorrow as she has to go on her errands so it'll be another day that we're in lockdown.
Mom just had another hectic night here,she was on the phone and our fid sitters daughter called her and wanted Mom to go across the street to check on her,so she did and then she found out that the fid sitters phones were not working and she's got Life Alert and that wouldn't be working as both her phones were down,so then Mom had to go and get my dad's cell phone to bring it over to her so she could talk to her daughter and see for herself that she was all right,the fid sitter and then the fid sitter had Mom over there til way past nine so Mom is just getting to our visits now,she had thought that we could get our visits in and be done early but that's not going to happen,Mom is so tired but she will get as much of our visits in as possible as she's off and running again tomorrow and won't be home til late again!Mom wants to know whats it like to be bored?
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 buddy!Love Kallie

You better hurry with your tree. It's a little over a week to go! I want to see a new pic of you. Maybe you should sing some carols and that will set the mood for decorating the tree.
The two day rain got rid of most of the snow but, we still have some and more coming on Wednesday. Glad to be rid of the icy roads. I don't know about you but, I'm so stressed with this Santa Bird watching me all the time. I had a non-stop two hour scream session this morning. Mom couldn't take it and threaten to give me away! I finally calmed down with my peppermint hot chocolate. WHEW, that was a close call. How many more days do I have to be good???

Yup, we are fine with no snow...maybe on Christmas Eve, they say. That is fine. Mom saw a couple flakes tonight driving home, but nothing much. Had more rain than anything--for December, that is weird. But it sure did get cold outside. I was nice and snug here in the apt, but Mom says it was really getting wicked when she was out.

  Hi Hulk!
Are you getting ready for Santa Bird? Picabo is trying to be a good boy and Scion and I are always very good. We are hoping for a new toy. Mom got something from the vet today but won't tell us or show us!

Mom got the tree up but the lovebirds are chewing up the topper and the kittens are taking off the ornaments and branches from the bottom. She was fixing the ribbon topper yesterday and heard a noise and there was a kitten sleeping in the branches about halfway up the tree! She says it isn't a shabby chic tree- just a shabby tree! Tomorrow it is moving to the casita where there are no live animals or birds!

There was an interesting ad in our mexican newspaper in the classified section. They are selling the following: a baby bengal tiger, a baby lion, a ring tailed lemur, spider monkeys, pot bellied pigs, macaws and cockatoos! It is the same place our neighbor got his macaws! But so funny to see in the newspaper ads. They all come with proper permits and papers!

Today the junior kitties went to the vet for shots. They were very unhappy to go in the crate in the car and hid under the towel in there. They didn't come out until they were back home. They still have to go again in two weeks for their rabies shots!

It has been only 65F every morning when we wake up! It does warm up into the 70s during the day so we go outside but that is really chilly for us in the mornings. Tomorrow mom will be home with us all day so she will sit outside with us and work on arts and crafts.

The KB is decorated so lovely for Christmas and Hanukah! Let's fly over and sit by the fire and share some coca with whipped cream. I will bring a slice of lemon lime pound cake that mom made yesterday!
Beaky kisses and sweet dreams of sugarplums!

Ginger snaps? They sound good!
This morning mom had a docent meeting at the museum, and after the meeting was their holiday luncheon. Mom's fudge went over well, but there was a lot of food there, so there was leftover fudge to bring home. Mom gave some away to the guard at the gate and the guy collecting parking fees, but there was still more. Maybe Jeff, our neighbor with the Irish setters, will want some. Mom hopes so!
Tonight is dog class, and they will have a class next week, but be off the following week. Mom hasn't had a lot of time to work with Daisy this week, so she's not up to where mom would like.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Hulk
Thanks for stopping by again! I appreciate each blog and vote, and of course, all the hugs, too.
Today we're going to do everything Heinz! You may have noticed that Pittsburgh has some recurring names to things, Carnegie, Frick, Mellon, Heinz...
So the Heinz family built the Heinz plant on the North Side of the city, and they made 57 varieties of things, including Heinz Ketchup. (They also gave PA a great senator, John Heinz, who passed away at a young age.) Anyway, they have given a lot back to the city, so going from the last new pics (5&6) to the first they are 2 shots of Heinz Chapel. This is a nondenominational church located on the University of Pittsburgh campus, very close to the Cathedral of Learning (and the museum). One of mom's nieces got married there, it's a very popular place for weddings.
There are both exterior and interior views. The next 2 pics(3&4) are at Heinz field, the Great Hall. This is where the several Vince Lombardi trophies and super bowl rings, as well as lots of other Steeler memorabilia, are shown. It's like its own museum. The first 2 pics are the Heinz plant and the pickle pin!
When mom was young, Heinz plant tours were popular for kids. Her class toured the plant, and each kid was given a pickle pin at the end of the tour. They must have given out millions of pickle pins in their time here. Today the plant is owned by DelMonte, and lots of the stuff isn't made here any more, but the building still stands.
And we've seen Heinz Field and the Heinz History Museum already. So that's all things Heinz in our area! Thanks for reading, and hope you have a lovely day, and get lots of attention.
BTW, did you see the parrots singing carols on the new newsletter? They are really fun to watch. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi, Hulk
Think many of the Kindle ebooks are able to preview and only can see the first few pages. Hope you can find the free books as the selection changes.

That doesn't sound good to have the heat up so high at your mom's work and can lower it. Think best to have it a tad cooler as easier to wear an eggstra shirt than if too warm.

The tree is up. Dad put lil lights on it so just need to add the ornaments. Mom'll tackle that later as she's off to do some shopping with skinsis and the grand.

I hope your day was just perfect! We had some very dark clouds to the west but sunshine to the east! It looked very pretty. We didn't do a whole lot today. Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night and we have lots to get done around the house. Dad will be home Wednesday and he gets to stay home until Christmas is over!!
Mom went to the mall today to the Hallmark store to get Ian an ornament. She got him the Spiderman one this year. Mom has been buying him a Christmas ornament every year since he was born. This will be ornament #32! He has a strange collection of book characters, Godzilla, spaceships and action figures! The very first one was the Poky Little Puppy! That was his favorite book at the time!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

The BC is giving Raffi a hard time too. It's not too bad for me ... just slow and a squawk page a night.
Sunday night news:
It was a "hot" day of 42 with lots of fog. The good part is the ice on the roads has melted. Now tonight, we have rain thru Tuesday night and then back to cold and snow. Don't put away the winter gear or hot chocolate, it's not even officially winter yet. It's like a sauna here ... LOL!

Mom was up early cleaning our cages and feeding us our breakfast so she could vacuum the house and see if she could get the tree out and ready with the lights to put in the windows and skin bro was at the door,he had walked the 3 or 4 miles down from the repair shop where he left his car to be serviced,he needed a new flange and his exhaust system had a leak in it so he waited with Mom and played with some of us until they called to let him know his car was ready.He's trying to get an inspection sticker for over a year now and keeps getting the Rejection sticker.Hopefully his car will pass it this time and there won't be anymore problems.Mom gave him some money to cover the cost of the bill as he didn't have enough.Then Mom drove him back to the repair shop,he was going to walk back again,but why do that when its so cold out?Mom gave him some breakfast and then drove the three minutes to where his car was and when she came home she quickly vacuumed the house and pulled the lights out and the tree,she still has to find room for the plants in the window where the tree is going!
Its a bright sunny day here but cold with 41 degrees and the highs are to be 44 with the lows of 35.Mom is happy as long as its not snowing out she'll deal with the cold!
Mom took us out to the acrylic cage to be in the sunshine and to have a view of the outside world and to give us a change of scenery!
Mom finally got our tree up tonight and the lights all strung in the window in the tv room,Dad came home and helped her and maybe on the weekend they'll get the lights in the dining room window up!Oh Hulk,I wouldn't think of having a celebration without you by my side,what good is a special time or day without your good sweet friends to share it with you!

We had bad fog here, and it did clear up this afternoon when the rain came. Sure hope that we don't get freezing drizzly stuff, either. Guess we are back to the normal temps, but they are saying there might be some sun in the next day or so. Now that would be super nice--way too hard to wake up in the mornings!

  Hi Hulk pal, sorry about the Pack losing-Jen Lynn
...and equally sorry the worthless Lions won, we are Bears fans who are going nowhere this year, but the Lions are our least favorite team for many reasons! The pack will be there when it really counts! Our sun seems to have forsaken us, it is gloomy and overcast once again, with a good chance of rain, but it is warming up nicely! After cage duty comes more Christmas Card prep, a true labor of love! Last year we sent out over 50 cards, but may not finish that many this year, it is a time constraint thing, and dad can't sit up straight for very long, his back starts to hurt really bad! Have a Greyt Monday, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow, dear one...

She knows she's too warm to be attractive to a vulture. Even the red tailed hawk didn't hiss at her. There was a new trainee too, who was afraid of the box turtles. Mom helped her take them out and put them back once their cage was clean. Mom had just finished with the snapping turtle when the woman came and asked about the turtles. There is also a Pekin duck there. These ducks are domestic cousins of Mallards, and people usually raise them for food (you know, Peking duck at the Chinese restaurant?). If you've seen magicians with ducks, this is the duck he most likely has. This guy's leg was really bad when he got there, but it's great now, he's putting weight on it and even swimming in his pond.
Mom will make more fudge tonight for the docent luncheon tomorrow after their meeting. We won't be online until late tomorrow, probably.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and love. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Hulk
This is how mom finds the free Kindle books. Go to Amazon and select Kindle books. On the right hand side should see a list of best sellers. Click on that and will show the top 100 paid books and top 100 free books. On the left can select the category of books interested in then select to see the top 100 free. That's it. Can add as many as you want. If previously downloaded it will tell you already have that book. Mom's even found a few free knitting books and cooking ones. Lots of subcategories to narrow the focus.

Be scary to have to possibly be rescued from a vehicle that was swept away. Seen people climb out on the roofs or clinging to trees and such. Would imagine if not rescued quickly being in the cold water wouldn't be good.

No fun to drive in fog. We had more rain today. Not as much as last week but every bit helps.

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

  Hi Hulk
Thanks for the votes every day! I really love hearing from you, too.
Before we leave the Strip, we have to visit St. Stanislaus Church, it's right in the center of things, there on Smallman Street! The first 2 pics in my gallery show one of the oldest churches in Pittsburgh, St. Stanislaus in the Strip. I thought while we were seeing churches, we could go back to Oakland and see St. Paul's Cathedral, the next 2 pics in my gallery. This is the biggest Catholic church in the area. The last 2 new pics are of East Liberty Presbyterian Church, built by the Mellons in the 1800s. The people in Pittsburgh at the time called it Mellon's Fire Escape! Maybe it was, who knows? Today at that church, there are organ recitals every week, and Taize music some evenings. If you don't know the Taize stuff, you should google it and listen to a piece or 2, it's beautiful singing.
So, tomorrow we will go back to Oakland to see other things, including Heinz Chapel.
You may have noted Heinz field, Heinz History museum, and now Heinz chapel; what's that all about? We'll talk more tomorrow! Hope you have a spectacular day. Hugs, Peppino

  The boys run and get themselves perched
at the table - they're wearing their Santa hats, but put their beards aside so they'd stay clean ! Finally, mama Sandy sprinkles the almonds on their pizza and brings it to the table with two big glasses of root beer :)

Happy food sounds fill the kitchen !

  Hi hulk
Last night I had a terrible dream. I woke up cold and freezing, looked at the weather gauge, and it looked like I was up North. Only 40 degrees this morning. This is NOT my Florida. RT

  Hi Hulk
no meteor showers to see at our house its been raining and foggy for 2 days now. tonight the sky has a reddish cast to it and they are predicting snow in the next few days. right now its about 40 outside. we have missed every meteor shower this year because of rain clouds in the night sky.

mom was driving on the road and saw a baby deer drinking from a pond in a neighbors yard. she didn't think there would be baby deer this late. in the year. at first she thought it was a dog but then she saw the mom standing behind it watching her baby drink. it didn't have any spots but was very tiny

love Boo Boo

  Hi Hulk
Skin sis came over early and whisked Mom away but first she wanted Mom to go up to the attic and get her Christmas Tree and she did that and then they took off to Nana's to make homemade ravioli's and they also made homemade linguine!Skin bro was there also and Nana had made a key lime cake and then they stopped for a break and had some of that with coffee before they continued on,then Nana sent out for take out Chinese and the skin sibs went out and picked it up for them while Mom and Nana continued making the ravioli's.In the end Mom and Nana made two dozen ravioli's and they made quite a bit of linguine so they should be all set for Christmas dinner now.When skin sis brought Mom home she had to get dad his dinner and us all fed and cleaned for the night.We were all yelling at her for being late again even though our dad was home,he fed us our pellets and gave us our snacks and put the light on for us but he didn't close our curtains,we don't like looking at the darkness outside the window and the spooky lights passing by from the cars going up and down the street!
Mom came home to find that I was BOTD and now she really has her hands full with taking all three of us to write out our thank you's!I think by the time she catches me up with mine her fingers will start to fall off one at a time with all this frantic typing she's been doing for us three!That should teach her not to go out on a Sunday when she should be home with us and taking us to our visits,she wouldn't be so far behind if she just stayed home once in a while!Our tree isn't up yet either and my Mom says the same thing about getting our tree up,maybe tomorrow and my dad says that he will help her tomorrow!Please give your awesome Mom a big hug from my Mom and we give her all warm wing hugs to help make her feel better,I too got those squawkatiels last night and the error pages and timed out pages too and the constant cycling!It took an hour to do one blog and mom was so frustrated with it!Both Mom and I just can't wait for your sweet Momma to start her two week vacation,she sure can use some time off to relax and sleep in and snuggle with you!It was fairly cold here today with temperatures of 37 but at least we had a sunny day so we couldn't complain about that too much!
You have to come to the castle for a day of fun,food,friends and downright partying with me!Can you believe this is my third time here with you this week?Come share in my special day,there are so many things to do at the castle and we can have such a fun time together!It just wouldn't be the same with out you here by my side joining in the celebrations!Sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses my sweet buddy! Love Kallie

  Heya, Hulk!
What a disaster! It was almost as bad as that painful Badgers game. They played like they were third stringers. I have never seen a team so off. And they are now tied with the Lions for first place in the division, but are sixth seed for the playoffs.

Nice today, but wow, outside the window is super dense fog! Like being in London, that is for sure. Those creepy Dracula movies...or the Hound of the Baskervilles London, that is.

Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi, Hulk
Has your mom ever checked out the free books on the Kindle? Mom has lots of books she found for free so never lacking in something to read. The list changes often so mom tries to check everyday. Many good titles have shown up there.

Guess some people think they are able to drive thru that standing water or don't realize how deep it is. Would never want to be in a car that has been grabbed by a river of water and get washed away.

Sunny yesterday and should be same today but cool. We'll see if more rain for Mon/Tue.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.
