  Hi Hulk
Actually I'm looking forward to winter, then our temps will only be around 70, instead of the 90 plus we've been having the last 6-8 weeks.

Pops says that Mom spends more time with me, than she does with him. And I don't have a problem with that since we have such a great time playing. If pops got n the floor with me to play, he'd probably never be able to get up, hee hee.

  Hi Hulk
As you know I love to chew up wood. I was working on several big blocks. I made toothpicks and then threw them as far as possible all over the place. Mom said this was probably the worst mess I have made so far. I'm so proud!
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!

  Hi Hulk
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!
It seems in the last couple of days we went from getting temperatures as low as the mid 40's at night to only barely 60's during the day!Then today it was really hot and humid in the 80's!Mom has a pile of clothes to wear as she can't figure out whether its going to be winter or summer when she gets outside!I'm wishing you a greyt holiday with your sweet Momma and you get lots of time with her today!
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 friend,Love,Kallie

  Heya, Hulk!
Yup, the Brew Crew needs to win as many games as they can--and today the Cubs were out to make sure they did not win. Sheesh. Mom has faith that they will snap out of this slump. They are now in second place, and that is awful.

Today started out as a grey and rainy day, but the clouds parted, the sunshine came through, and even though it was humid the wind that kicked up helped. Mom picked up some things from the store, and then we both took a nice nap. I had a great time tunneling under Mom's shirt while she tried to sleep. Hey, gotta take advantage of Mom being home today. Then we dusted, and she made her turkey burgers (yum) and sauteed onions (oh yeah!), and she ironed clothes. Now it is blog time and I am happily dictating to her while sitting on her shoulder.

Hope you had a wonderful day, too! Mine was superb!!

Yep mom still hasnt made a new tape...said she has to write herself a note LOL
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)

  Hi Hulk
Last night mom went to Lena's art show and sale, and she bought some paintings and some prints for Christmas gifts.
It rained pretty much all day until late afternoon yesterday, so there was no pool time at all. Today was a different story, though! After doing the main aviary and the small flight aviary this morning, mom got to go to the pool for the last time this summer. It was a gorgeous afternoon, even if it was a bit cloudy here and there.
As for the squirrels, the little girl grey has started eating mash, and today she preferred to eat rather than take formula from the syringe. This morning she drank about half of the formula, then turned her head, so mom squirted the rest into her mash, which she promptly ate. Mom checked at noon, and refilled it, and again at 4, it was empty, so mom refilled it again. She will still get hand fed a few more nights, but she should be back at the center by the end of the week. The little boy fox squirrel opened his eyes today! That means mom can quit stimulating him to go to the bathroom, and in a few days, she can introduce mash to him as well. When she reported their weights this morning, the staff was pleased with their development.
I hope you are having a good Labor day, getting the best picnic of the year in, or whatever else you are doing, and getting lots of sunshine and love. Hugs, Willie

  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

  Hi, Hulk
We waited until after the pie eating to sample the fair food. Paid off since we did so well. Thanks for the congrats. We will cherish the pics of all the events.

Guess mom was lucky getting the pic that's in our gallery. Not the best either but at least she isn't making the about the cry face. Skinsis wondered where she'd caught the cold since she hasn't returned to work yet and the fiance didn't get it and he's the one that works with kids.

Wonder if having kids there start later works out better with the winter often being harsh? Not sure what the reasoning but maybe don't want to start and then have the holiday right away.

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

But, the BC problems started around 9pm for me I left at 10 and came back 45 minutes later. It's bad tonight too ...grrrr!

one of my crickets got loose in the house last night. 3am in the morning and dad is yelling he can't sleep because the cricket somehow managed to find its way into the living room and with the high cathedral ceilings it was having a good old time rubbing its legs together and it was making a super loud chirping because of the echo. mom had to get the duster out and the step ladder and run the duster along the beams to knock it down. once it fell down it shut up so dad shut up.

well Boo Boo and i had the best time ever at the milonga last night. it was so cute to see Pearl win the pie eating contest. who knew such a little bird could eat so much so quickly while standing in the middle of a pie! and of course it was great to see our friend Cookie and Petunia win the pig race .
not much going on around here. mom hasn't been feeling very well but today it rained all day so she decided to clean the filthy house and now she can't stop sneezing.

I am sure you will like that mimic me toy too. Mom keeps wanting to change the saying on it and always forgets till she is about ready to leave out the door and has it on for me.
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.

Oh ya, it was a semi-nice day here--cloudy at times, sunny at others. Humid for sure, all day.

OMGoodness. Mom was watching the Badgers and she went over to the Brewers game when they were ahead by 17 points. Well, from what she saw on Twitter, that lead went poof! They had about as good a night as the Brewers did. Though the Brewers were almost shut out, and victims of a no-hitter. Luckily they got a run and a hit or two. Whew.

Mom says she doesn't care what it does tomorrow. She is going to do some stuff around here and then she is gonna run out to pick up some groceries she could not get at a Wally World yesterday. And then we are just gonna have a nice Mom and Kaji day.

  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

Mom thinks she will get the okay on Sept. 11 when she goes back for the final post op followup.
Once again, the county fair milonga was fantastic! We all had a great time. Falco's booth made a ton of cash, we gave out lots of prizes, too. Cash goes to birdie rescues, as we all know, and the leftover prizes will go there too.
Piglet and I had a lot of fun in the races, and I assured her she is a winner and a wonderful piggie. Peppino had peach pie all over himself and had fun in the pie contest, too. Congrats to Pearl for winning that one!
A huge thank you to Kiddo, Ranebeau, Taz, and SamIAm for making the night one to be remembered forever! The pictures helped to make the night complete.
Hope you are having better weather than we are today. It's cool and raining really hard here. We're hoping tomorrow brings some sunshine for the last day at the pool. They changed their late night swim and annual bonfire to last night, because of the predicted weather today, it was a fine idea. Anyway, I hope it's sunny and warm and a lovely day full of cuddles where you are! Hugs, Willie

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Kaji, TiPaul, and Sky for 10k!, Peppino, Divo, welcoming his old buddy Tooth home & Falco, fly free, Tooth.

  Hi, Hulk
Great seeing you at the Milonga last night. Guess it had a bit of slowness and repeat blogs and we had to open and close the page just when it was pie contest time! We are thrilled to do so well at the pie eating. Great pig racing, music, food, pics - Kiddo and co outdid themselves.

Skinsis and the grand came by yesterday to watch the first new episode of Dr. Who. Mom tried to take a new pic. Baby was making a face and then mom's camera battery ran out. Dad tried with his but all he got was fuss, fuss, fuss. Skinsis says she had a cold a few days ago and baby wasn't feeling well either. Both are fine though.

Kids haven't returned to school yet? Think kids here started on the 18th.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  what a night !
Hulk and Cookie can't stop talking about it ! There was so much food, so much fun and so many friends ! Couldn't have been better - Kiddo, Taz and SamIAm truly outdid themselves :) Congratulations to all !

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 ! After a nap Hulk and Cookie decide it's the perfect movie day - time to recover from the late night !

  Hi Hulk
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!It sure felt good to have Mom home with us all day long!I sure hope your sweet Mom can get home from work in time to get you to the Milonga!I will love seeing you there!Thanks for liking my face painting!Everyone is telling me I look like a tiger bird!LOL!It always is that way when the kids start school its like the hottest day of the year here too,the kids start back here on Tuesday also and then the fun with the school buses start up again when Mom is trying to get home from being out all day!
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 buddy,Love,Kallie

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

  Hi Hulk
I hope Squeaks can make it too. It's been running a little slow for me so far. I'm trying to do blogs early tonight. Another storm just hit us!!!

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

Come visit me, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  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 We sit to watch the show.

  Hi Hulk
Mom figures when she leaves me alone then at least I hear her voice on that mimic me toy. I am sure you would like it to and its not hard to program either.
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)

Come visit me, Gus --Chi chi ♥ RIP & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  Heya, Hulk!
Oh yeah! Go Badgers! That is great that it is on at night, too. Mom hopes that the Brewers do better than last night--it was a game that hurt to watch.

First, I want to apologize for not blogging last night, but Mom kept trying to login and she got the "This page is not available" error message every time she tried. She finally gave up around 10:30 PM. She emailed tech support and Crystal, who said that she would let the team know, but everyone is pretty much out for the holiday. Today I was able to login, and hope you like my face painting picture! Auntie Denise really did a smashing job, don't you think?

And yes indeed, I did get to the farmers market today! Got my usual compliments from folks who thought I was just the best ever!! And I flirted with Paula super big time, so that was pretty neat.

We had heavy rain before we left, but the sun came out and the skies were blue, so Mom and I hurried over to the market while it was not raining. Started when we pulled into the driveway of the apt. Great timing!!

Cya at the Milonga!
Your buddy,
Kaji
