My mom's good friend had several cockatoos and when they laid an egg and I hatched, they gave me to my mom and dad. Even the vet said I was the ugliest bird she'd ever seen since my bird mom plucked me when I was 3 months old! But see, the Ugly Duckling story is really true!!! hehehe

Hi everybirdie Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. I want to take a moment to thank you all for your continuous daily votes, and awesome blogs. I am trying to use them in my story line so keep them comin.' IF anybirdie still needs a Halloween picture please let me know your choice of costume and I will see what I can do to help you out.
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" Sky screams shrilly and he a Jake back up quickly from the mound of parted grass. "What was that thing???"
"I have no idea but I'm outta here" Jake heads back to rejoin BB and the others, with Sky following on his heels.
Sky shivers, and ducks behind BB. Peaking out to stare towards the grass with dilated eyes. "EEEEEKuck." Sky did not get the words out before birdies began to scream and jump as fast as they could to join Jake and Sky behind BB and BonBon who had come to see what was wrong with her Poppa Sky.
"S-P-I-D-E-R-S!" from every direction big, ucky, black, beady eyed spiders crawl, hang and appear out of every tree, bush and from behind every blade of grass. The girl birds huddle close together as the spiders spin their webs angrily from every solid object. Sky nervously sneaks a peak again from behind BB, closing his eyes. He hates spiders, well no, Sky is afraid of them, and these are BIG, black ucky ones with a quadrillion legs. He shutters, then takes a brave breath of air.
"BOYS, we must protect the ladies" Sky announces not too confidently.
"Yeah, that's right" Cookie says, hanging tightly onto BB's leg once more. " we'll protect you girls"
"Oh really, they're just Spiders" BooBoo says snatching one in her beak and swallowing it whole, "YUMMMMMIE"
The others look at BooBoo and make faces, "how disgusting BooBoo, eating it without BBQing it first" BonBon chirps up. " AHHHHHHH, ones chasing me" she says taking flight. She lands on her Poppa Sky's head. "I'll sit up here and keep watch on them for you" she grins down at her red feathered Poppa.
The spiders continue to emerge, spinning thick webs everywhere. Their black eyes glaring like fiery flames of anger. The birds huddle closely as the Spiders move closer and closer. Suddenly Jesse sees what looks like an opening, and yells, " Follow me" he runs as fast as his talons will carry him between two Mulberry bushes with the others closely upon his heels. The duck low to avoid the heavy webs hanging from the old dark trees, and weave to the left and right around the huge black spiders who appear to block their path of escape. Jesse rushes forward, jumping over an old fallen log, and lands inches from a monstrous Spider, who growls and snaps his feet at the pasting birdies.
"EEEEEEEEEEEE" the scream brings the fleeing birds to a halt, "LITTLE ANGEL, the Spiders grabbed her into their web, HELP HER!!!!!

  Heya, Picabo!
Sounds like your folks are really enjoying themselves, and sure sounds like an interesting place to live! Weather can't be beat. Thanks for filling me and Mom in on where you live--between the weather and the markets where you can buy fresh fruit and veggies, Mom would be in heaven! Me too!

Mom did her 'put my head on the back of the chair' trick last night, so that is why we did not get over to say hi. She woke up around 1 a.m. and I hafta say that I was not a happy camper. I was sleeping under my toy ikea dish drainer, and I was glad she finally woke up so I could hit the perch. She really wanted to do stuff, but once the clock turned 10, she just could not keep her eyes open!

No market for me today. It only got up to 45 degrees. Mom said it was yucky when she was out and about. She went for a free facial--but they said that she could get that or get a peel. So she opted for the apple-wine peel. She came home and was kinda pink in the face. She says it she is curious as to how it will come out--she has not had one before. But it was nice to get a treat like that!

Not much else going on here. I am perched on Mom's shoulder and gosh, it sure is nice!!

Your buddy,
Kaji

Hello friends, Jesse here with our Saturday BOTM Adventure Post. As we turned for a final look at BC Lake, the water is once more calm, glass-like and no sign of the past violent storm remains. Even the row-boats have disappeared. "WHAT! The row-boats, their gone!" Kacey exclaims loudly as she stares in disbelief. For indeed the boats had vanished into thin air.
BB looks at Sky and Jesse, then back at the Lake, "I hope we can find the BC Castle. It is funny that it has disappeared on us. I know it is a magical place but why would it vanish on the birds who love it sooooo much???" Then looking down towards the ground she says with a sigh, "Can somebirde please remove Cookie from around my legs? Its hard to waddle this way."
" SURE HOPE WE FIND OUR WAY BACK TO THE CASTLE THEN FIND OUR FRIENDS. THIS IS ONE SCAREY TRIP.' Sweetpepper tells Kiddo with worry in her voice. Kiddo takes her wing in his, and holds her tightly. "We'll get out of here, don't you worry Sweetpepper."
Spot comes to where Sky, BB and Jesse are standing, trying to decide what to do next. Jake walks towards the group, but suddenly stops dead in his tracks. "What was that?" he asks pointing to where he had thought he saw something peaking out of the grass at him. Seeing nothing he joins the others.
Bonbon looks and sees that her picture with Parker is in the photo album Hesse has on his gallery. turning to spot and Parker she says, "Jesse put me and Parker in the profile!Hehee!!! I can't wait to show Snowflake........ Oh no! I forgot that she disappeared!" BonBon starts to cry loudly because she misses her friend!
Spot hugs her and says, "don't worry BonBon. We'll find her and all the others too!"(He sounds more confidant than he feels, but he won't let BonBon see that!)
"Hey, Panther! I have an idea! We're tiels, and fly well! let's go up as high as we can and look for them!"
"Good idea, Spot," says Panther.
Jesse says, "you guys be careful! And keep up in sight range, OK?"
"OK, let's go Panther!" Spot lifts into the air
They fly straight up and fly in a big circle looking for their friends. Finally, they land and report to Jesse. "We didn't see them, we also didn't see the castle in any direction! I think we're lost!"
Worry lines form on Jesse's handsome face again, and he says, "it must be a trick of some kind by the BC ghosts! The Castle has to be there. It's always easy to find from the Lake."
Jake and Sky stand close, talking. "I am certain I saw tiny black eyes staring at me from over there, then they disappeared." Sky looks in the direction Jake indicated. Seeing nothing he frowns. " We better go check it out, just to be sure." The two boys inch closer to where the eyes had been. Parting the grass carefully using a stick Sky found on the ground they lean over for a better looks and suddenly the air is split in two by their terrified screams........

Helloooooo, Jesse screams in fright as the row boat bounces wildly on the storm tossed lake. The waves reach high over the sides of the row-boats filling them with cold, icy water. The frightened birds yell for help, their voices lost in the crashes of thunder from above.
After what feels like an eternity, the small wooden row-boats bump roughly into the rocky shores of the BC Lake. With a deep sigh of relief everybirdie scrambles to escape from the angry waters, and wind, jumping over the edge quickly, and running for cover in the nearby brush that watches over the normally quiet Lake. Jesse crawls along the beach, counting heads, making certain everybirdie is safely ashore. With so many disappearing he doesn't plan to take any chances at all from here on. Sitting down beside SKY, BB and Jake Jesse rubs his chin as he thinks of the next thing he ought to do. HE frowns sadly, uncertainly etching his handsome face with worry lines.
"I'm not certain where we are?" Jesse says, sneaking a peak out from around the brush he and the others are hankered down behind.
"We aren't far from the Castle. In fact from every point of BC Lake we can see the Castle. We need to get our bearings." BB says with confidence.
"Ok, Jake and I will head up that small hill and get a better idea where we are." Sky says climbing to his feet, with Jake beside him. ' Be right back" he tells BB and Jesse as they head off up the hill.
"You any idea where we are?" Sky asks Jake as they climb the hillside.
"NOPE!" Jake says looking around slowly. " NEVER saw this place before"
Sky takes Apache's binoculars from his jacket pocket and scans the area. " I can't find the Castle. Actually I can't see anything I recognize."
Sky hands Jake the binoculars. HE looks along time, then " whistles softly. Nope, me either. I think if we head towards the west we will find the Castle, or at least something we will remember."
Sky and Jake climb back down to where they'd left Jesse and BB. After a moment of explanation, they decide that they better keep moving. BB agrees that the Castle should lay tot he West. Jesse once more moves down the brushes, stopping to explain the plan to each group of nervous adventurers. He stops where Falco and Boo Boo sit quietly looking rather scared. " I'll get you outta here, and we will find the others. I promise." Falco smiles softly.
"OKAY, everybirdie, let's keep moving. I am sure that if we keep heading WEST we will locate the Castle, or somewhere we will all recognize. We need to hurry, we have to find Sugar, Cori, Pepper, Gus, Snowflake and Cydney."
With much murmuring the tired, wet, scared birdies follow Jesse as he begins to walk towards the West. The group climbs a small hill, coming to rest at the top for a moment. As they reach the summit, the wind fades, the clouds part, and once more the sky shines blue, and golden with the warm sunshine.

  Heya, Picabo!
This is the 6th time I am trying to get the blog posted. SQUAWK-a-tiels are back again.

So your parronts moved down there to stay? Mom heard that things were lots cheaper to live than here, and that a number of folks decided to move there. I bet the weather is pretty decent, too!

Wow. Mom had an interesting Thursday, and she hopes it is not repeated any time in the near future! First, she left this morning for work, and was wondering why there was all this traffic on the road. Then the folks on the radio said there was a car fire on the expressway that blocked two lanes of traffic. And the police blocked off the ramp Mom gets on the expressway to go to work. So she had to take another route, and that added 10 minutes on the drive. By the time she got to her parking structure, she was about 5 minutes later than she normally gets in. So she started up the structure, and saw one car coming back down. The second car she met coming down the ramp stopped, and the lady in it rolled down her window and told Mom there were no parking spots. Sure enough, they blocked off the upper 3 stories for the repair work. So she went back down and had to figure out where she could park. It was now 10 minutes later. She found a little surface lot, and had to cough up $12!! And she got in to work 5 minutes after she should have, and went to the meeting that was supposed to start at 8:45, and discovered it was cancelled. She figures tomorrow she will start out earlier, just in case. Then they had her favorite place by the lake blocked off for repairs. UGH!

The good part was that the rain stayed away. Still foggy, but not as bad. Mom saw a couple of breaks in the clouds and blue sky.

So there is a silver lining, isn't there?

Oh, you know I think Lizzie and Scion are so funny--they spent a whole night discussion the health benefits of pomegranate! I could not keep my eyes open, and perched for the night. Well, in the morning those two were still there, and they were talking recipes. I know she loves setting up those lunch boxes for the shuttle trips.

Grey. Rainy. Foggy. Chilly. Sums up my day. Sure hope yours was lots better!

Hi everybirdie, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. " SHHHHHH, we don't wanta wake up those crazy trees again."
"Turn three times and head to the East" Jenny-Lynn reads the sign, " what do you suppose this is all about Jesse?"
"HHHHMMM" Jesse rubs his chin, thinking deeply, as he looks around at the land before them, " not too sure but if the sign says head East we better do it." Jesse pulls his compose from his backpack and gets his bearings. " Ok, this way!"
"WAIT!" Chyna yells, "the signs says we have to turn three times first."
Jesse shrugs, shaking his head, "Girls" he thinks to himself. "East is East, but ok" he motions for everybirdie to stand still.
"The sign says we have to turn three times then head to the East" Jesse begins to turn in a 360 degree circle, " One, Two, Three" he stops and waits as the last of the group completes their third turn. "WOW, that makes me dizzy" Jesse giggles as he tries to get his balance.
"Alright, let's go this way. The road is narrow so be careful not to get too close to the trees and bushes as we get down this hill." Jesse strides off, happy to be moving as far away from the Enchanted Forest as he can get. The sun brilliantly shines down upon the birds as they enjoy the walk along the old dirt road heading towards the Castle in the East.
"Look, ahead" Rio says to Jesse, " what's that?" he points to a shiny area off to the side of the road about a quart mile away.
"Apache? Did you bring your binoculars?" Jesse asks
"Yes, of course, can't be a good scout without them" Apache pulls them over his head, and hands them to Jesse. " It's a lake. It must be the BC Lake" he hands the binoculars back to Apache. "we're nearly back tot he Castle" Jesse breathes a sigh of relief. Soon he could get the Macaw Guards and go back to find his two missing friends. His happy thoughts are shattered by a frantic cry.
" Cydney and Snowflake. They're gone" Raffi cries, as he rushes around, searching for them. " Where's Pepper? and Gus?" the others begin a frantic search for their friends. I saw Snowflake and Cydney, over there by that red rock. The boys spread out to search, but not a feather can be found from their missing friends. Tears fill their eyes as they return to the milling group, and tell them their friends have disappeared into thin air.
"We have to get out of here, and back to the Castle. Come on, let's hurry" Jesse leads out in a quick waddle as fast as his legs will carry him. The others scramble to keep up as they continue down the road drawing closer to the Lake. As the walk, the breeze begins to pick up, and clouds begin to blow blocking out the warm sun. Jesse feels a shiver of dread as he rushes towards the East..

  Heya, Picabo!
One ark coming up! Oh, it rained like crazy again tonight as Mom was leaving work, and the wind was so icky it blew Mom's umbrella so it curled up and did not stop the rain at all. She says that she sees people walking with these umbrella's so big that it looks like they could be used as weapons. Guess they know how bad the wind can be and they get a heavy duty one.

Now that place where the birdies come sounds so neat! And the flamingos...wow. They sure must be pretty!!

More rain tomorrow. UGH. These icky grey days are not supposed to be in October...more like November. We would love warm right about now.

Hello, Jesse here today with you next BOTM Adventure POST. " I always liked trees, but now I don't know" "HHHMMM?"
Spot reaches his Poppa Sky's side, " here, you'll need this" Spot hands his Poppa a hatchet.
"Where'd you find that?" Spot points to a rock by a tall Pine tree. It was just sitting there."
Sky grabs the hatchet and chops the limb off the tree. " AAAAHHHHH!" the Tree yells in pain.
"What?" Sky says to Spot who is helping fight off the vine with Poppa Sky;s pocket knife.
"That hurt" the Tree growls angrily. " now I'll show you" the Tree reaches out so quickly that Sky is not ready for the attack. It grabs his leg and pulls him up into the top-most branches, hanging him upside down. BB hears the scream, and rushes out of the safety of the Boulder where her Sky had left her. Others had found the safety also, and hurried to join her. " NO WAIT HERE" she says picking up a large branch lying on the ground. " that's my Mr Sky" she dashes and runs over the snaky vines, and ducks under the limbs reaching out to grab hold of her. She stands below the tree holding her SKY captive, and pulling back she let's the limb swing, slamming a home-run hit on it's trunk. The terrified tree screams in shock. " Let my MR SKY go, NOW!" she orders angrily. The terrified tree watches as she readies for a second hit. With aloud gasp, and thump, Mr Sky is dropped onto the ground at her feet, in a pile of red and green feathers. Seeing Sky is ok, if not embarrassed she orders the tree, " and Cookie too, and any other birdie you have up there to"
One by one they drop onto the soft leaves and grass below. Six birdies jump free and scramble for safety behind the boulder.
"Ok, let's go rescue the others." Sky tells Spot and BB. They work their way from bush and tree to tree. Leaves shaking furiously at them, as they release their bounty. "Where's Jesse?" Spot asks once the others were in safety. I haven't seen him yet. JESSE?" Spot listens carefully. "Hear that?" he asks BB
"This way" Spot leads the rescuers towards the source of the muffled sound. There, lying rolled in Ivy and wild grape vines with only his bright yellow head feathers showing was his Uncle Jesse. " et eeee utta ere." Spot begins to carefully cut the twined vines and Ivy free, making sure not to cut Uncle Jesse in the process. " Ah, thanks Spot, I was starting to loose consciousness."
Jesse scrambles free of the vines, panting. HE looks around at the trees, now standing quietly, leaves stirring gently in the soft, autumn breeze, like a man sleeping in the sun. " What just happened?" he says out loud.
" We best be gettin' outta here quick, before these crazy trees wake up." Jesse waves the others onwards, as he stand watch until the last one is clear of the " Enchanted Forest". He hurriedly takes the lead once more, as the group climbs a hill. At the peak, a sign reads; turn three times and head to the East.

  Heya, Picabo!
Hi! My name is Noah, and Mom and I are building an ark. Gotcha!

It has been raining here, and boy was it foggy down where Mom works. And boy did it get bad--that big old US Bank 32 story high building was more than half covered in thick white fog. And then the rain started coming down really heavy, too. Me? I napped on and off all day, and Mom came home and saw I barely ate my food. Guess who was starving? She gave me some noodles and stuffing...and I was beak first in my dish for a good 10 minutes. Yup. Good stuff, really good stuff!

Wow! You have a neem tree?! Mom loves that stuff! She has neem shampoo, neem salve, neem/emu oil/lavender oil salve...Some of the best stuff out there, she says. Send a tree this way, okay? Mom would be very happy. Better than tea tree oil any day!

Now I am velcroed to Mom. She says that it is supposed to be more of the same tomorrow...gosh, these days are good for naps and that is about it!

Hope yours was sunny and warm and not a lick of fog anyplace!!

Hello everybirdie. Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure Post. I know right now, I sure wish I'd brought my cell phone with me.
Jesse and Jake head across the room, following the sound of the voice, with Kiddo and Sweetpepper joining them.
"Let's grab hold and pull." The birds grip the handle with all their strength, " One, TWO, THREE!" Jesse yells and they tug as hard as they can. They pull, and pull, with all their might. Suddenly, the handle gives, and a small door springs open in the wall. " We did it, we got it open" Picabo calls out happily, as sunlight beams in through the opening. "We're free"
Jesse smiles, happy to think that they would be out in the sunlight in a minute, and soon the Castle macaw Guards would be there to help find his friends Cori and Sugar."I bet their already outside ready to jump out and frighten us as we step into the sunlight." he thinks to himself as he starts to climb through the small door.
"Come on,it's beautiful outside. I'm glad to be free to that corn maze for good." Jesse calls over his shoulder as he steps into the open again. The trees look pretty with all their colorful leaves stirring in the gentle breeze.
Quickly the others rush out through the small door and shake their feathers to calm themselves, after being in the pitch dark, dusty room. They smile as the sunlight beams onto them, and the soft breeze stirs the leaves on the ground around their feet. They start off in the direction of the Castle, looking for help in locating their missing friends. They hadn't gone very far at all when suddenly a terrified scream rose from amongst them. Every head snaps round just in time to see Cookie disappearing into the leaves of a nearby tree. The birdies yell in fright, as the trees and bushes around them spring to life, branches and limbs reaching out to catch hold of them, as they dart and twist to get free. Screams shake the air as birdies are gripped by the leaves and twigs, pulled high up into the air.
"Jesse" Elvis yells, as he dashes to stay free of a vine, trying to wrap around his foot. " help, we gotta save the others"
Elvis, leaps just in time and the vine snakes back into the darkness below the tall Oak tree nearby.
Sky dodges a limb, grabbing BB by the waist and hurrying behind a large boulder away from the trees. " You stay here, I'm going to save our friend Cookie. Sky hops,and jumps vines and limbs that fly forwards to capture him, as he works towards the tree where Cookie is yelling for help. " I'm here buddy." Sky ducks as a branch reaches for his head. " That's it. Enough" he takes out his pocket knife and cuts the vine around his foot, and snips the end of the branch as it reaches forward once more.

  Heya, Picabo!
Nope, no farmer's market for me. It was around 60, which is pretty chilly to be out. But people asked about me, and said that they sure wished I would be able to get one more trip there. Mom says only if it gets above 70. Haha. Probably means I have to wait until next year. Mom says it is not fun without me to talk to, and I know she would take me if she could.

Wow. 3 kittens? Bet they are cute, too. Mom likes the kittens, but not so much the cats. Though she likes her friend Kim's cat AenaHey. Guess she is a bird lover, and she loves her dogs, too. But if someone drops them off at your doorstep, they are hard to turn away or ignore.

Well, it was a nice Sunday, though I have to say hearing Mom shouting at the TV meant that the Packers were playing. And what a game! I haven't heard her talk to the TV, or yell at it, probably since last football season. Glad the Packers won in the final seconds of the game or I would never have heard the end of her muttering!

Got to 58 degrees today, and it was nice when the sun was out earlier. Got cloudy and started to rain about the time Mom went over to Grandpa's. She brought me back chicken and stuffing, so I was very happy.

Mom said that there were a robins at Grandpa's this afternoon! She saw at least two dozen in the back yard. Some looked really young, too--that dull orange/grey/white colored chest is the giveaway--must be late in the season babies. Since it started to rain around that time, Mom figured they were out there looking for bugs and worms. It was pretty cool. Two mourning doves flew over, but one of the bigger robins chased them away. We hope they get down south pretty soon, cuz it is getting to be that time of year again.

Hope you enjoyed your Sunday!
Your buddy,
Kaji

Happy Sunday to all my BC friends. I hope you all are having an enjoyable weekend. Thank you to each of my friends for their votes, messages and encouragement. I hope your ready for today's adventure in the Corn Maze.
"AUHHHHHH!" Sky coughs, as dusty air fills the room. "What is that awful smell? "
"I don't know buddy, but it wasn't me who did it." Jake laughs loudly, sneezing as the dust swirls and turns in clouds around them. How can that dust blow everywhere when we haven't moved?"
Looking from one to the other, their eyes big. One by one the group files into the stinky, dusty room and crowds together in the damp, blackness. "Everyone here?" Jesse asks
The room is alive with answers. " CORI? SUGAR?" No answer comes.
" Has anybird seen Cori or Sugar?" Jesse questions fearful of what might have become of them in the darkness
" After a moment of puzzled questions and answers, " NO, last time I saw Sugar or Cori was when we were by that hole in the wall, where the maggots where." Pookie and Laka reply. Laka's pretty face pales at the thought of what might have happened to her friends.
"I'll go back and look for them" Raffi says, Cinn-A-Bunn joining him, as they lave the room and feel their way back down the wall. Sky and Jesse rush to catch up, as the four boys search for their missing friends. In the gloomy room, the others stand restlessly waiting. Fearing what fate might have befallen their missing companions.
"We should have gotten to the hole by now. It wasn't this far Jesse" Cinny says
"Yeah, where did the hole go?" Raffi asks concern in his voice, it should have been back a ways in the other direction. " Let's go back, we must have missed it somehow." The four boys turn and retrace their steps. Arriving at the door frame once more they step inside. " DID they show back up?" Jesse asks hopefully. When he hears that negative responses he swallows the lump in his throat.
" I say we go onwards, get outside and go get the Castle Guards to help search. They likely found a way out and are waiting to scare us when we step out the door." BB says, looking at Sky her eyes filled with tears. " I know they're ok, you'll see" Sky pulls her close and hugs her tightly, " we'll find them sweetheart."
"Let's all check out this room carefully for the way out. Stay close so you can feel each others wings and us your feet and wings to feel for the door out of here." Jesse instructs the group. They make their way to the walls, and start to run their wing tips over the icy surface.
"I found something right here" Picabo says, touching a handle made of wood, attached to the wall in front of him. " It must be a trap door outside."

  Hi Picabo
of course we wouldn't miss the chance to go to alaska. our mom never goes anywhere and when she does venture out strange things happen which seem to tell mom to just stay home. mom went to get gas and scanned her credit card too fast so she cancelled to start over and then the machine blocked the credit card so mom just kept scanning over and over and over and finally she was allowed to get gas and she filled up the tank and went inside and said something was wrong with their machine and she wanted the gas charge on her credit card since she doesn't have a debit card and the gas attendant said the machine rejected moms card completely and gave her free gas so they made her pay again inside with the same credit card which she then scanned over and over and over again until the machine accepted it and mom said to the attendant i had better only get one charge on my credit card for gas and not 50 and the attendant assured mom everything was ok. mom knows when she gets the charge on her credit card for the gas it will be for about $500 and not $30. the reason mom knows this is because of Murphys law which rules everything mom does.

mom went to visit with g-ma today at the hospital. she found it with no problems. g-ma is doing ok and is being held for observation since no one seems to have a clue as to how or why g-ma fell.g-mas face looks like she did 10 rounds in a boxing ring and lost and gets quite upset if you tell her how bad it looks. actually it wasn't even swollen and looked pretty good except for the big black stitches and her whole right side of her face is black and blue. g-m is angry she is in the hospital and doesn't know why she is in there and want to go home. mom then left and got lost inside the hospital trying to find her way out. it seems all hospitals are designed like a maze and mom found about 10 other people who were lost and trying to find their way out. finally a nurse saw them and led the confused group outside to daylight.

love Cori and Boo Boo

Hi friends, JESSE here once more with your BOTM POST. "WOW, it sure is dark in here" Being a boy Amazon, I have to be brave, bold and courageous? "Jenny-Lynn? You here?"
Little Angel clings tightly to Dixie's wing-tip, as she tries to think how to get out of this scary, dark corn maze. How hard can it be to chew through the corn stalks anyways?
"I have an idea" LA calls out in the blackness. We can chew through the corn stalks and climb out."
"Greyt idea LA" Jenny-Lynn says heading tot he wall and grabbing a beakful of corn-stalk. " HEY, hello? I could use of help here" she says as she pulls a piece free and throws it onto the floor. Soon, everybirdie is busily working their way through the wall of dried corn stalks. " I'm through. Come on, let's pull these piece out and get outta-here."
Sky, Jake, Jesse and Finnegan work quickly to remove the remaining wall, as the others push them out of the way. Jesse carefully climbs through and steps down onto the ground. "AHHHHHHH!" he screams in terror. "Pull me back in, pull me back in, hurry" The group of adventurous birdies grab their friend and guide and yank him through the hole into their midst. " Maaaaaagoootts" he says trembling.
"Let me at them" Boo Boo chirps up, " their greyt on bread with peanut butter"
"YUCK!!!!, OWWWWWW!! GROSS!" everyone gags at the thought of maggots on peanut butter.
"HEY, don't refuse it till ya try it" Boo Boo says grinning, a twinkle in her eye.
"Let me look" Jenny offers, sticking her head through the large hole in the wall. " YEP, maggots all right." she backs into the room, " millions of them everywhere"
Jesse calms down and shakes to make sure none got onto his feathers. " We can't go that way to get out. We'll have to feel our way and go on" He places a wing tip onto the wall, " OH, watch your step" he trips over what feels like a fallen tree limb?' He wonders to himself how a tree limb got into this hallway.
Everybirdie places their wings onto the rough wall, and inching carefully forward follow Jesse down the twisty hallway. Jesse feels his way until he reaches what feels like a wooden door frame. He stops and runs his wings over the frame, then the cold, hard door. "I found a door. It must be the door that leads us outside again."
Jesse pushes on the door, but it is stuck tight. Then in the pitch blackness, his wing touches a metal doorknob. Using both wings he turns it. Slowly it moves, grinding and clicking, as it opens the door. Jesse pushes the door and it opens noisily on rusty sounding hinges. A puff of stale, dusty air escapes into the hallway, making everybirdie sneeze. " ok, come on, we're going to get out of here. When you go through the door stop and wait until we are all together. We don't want to leave anybirdie behind."
Jesse walks into the room, followed by Jake and Sky, BB and Kiddo. They cough as foul-smelling dust rises into the air.

HELLO, everybirdie, Jesse with today's BOTM POST. I want to thank you all for your daily votes, and I really love the photos of you in your Halloween costumes. I am picking them up and will soon post them on my gallery for everybirdy to enjoy them.
Dixie looks upset and confused, scared that something had happened to his wife-bird. " They'll be there when we get back Little Angel" he kisses her beak softly to comfort her.
"it'll only take me a moment to run back, get them and be back here." LA turns to run but stops dead in her tracks. The entrance hall has vanished. A solid wall lays in its place. She spins in a circle trying to figure out where the hallway into the maze is. Finally she gives up and stands very still staring at the blackness. Dixie grabs her by the wing and pulls her to him protectively.
" Don't panic. There must be an explanation. RIGHT? SKY? JAKE?" Jesse says anxiously. He looks around to find where the hallway was before he had stopped. Confused he shakes his yellow-head and says, " OK, it's obvious we can't go back out the way we came in. We have only got two choices. Either we stay here until the Castle Macaw Guards come rescue us, or we continue to move on." HE looks at the two tunnels ahead of them. Right now, he wishes he were anywhere but here in the darkness, as a cold chill begins to fill the place where the group stands waiting.
" I say we toss a coin" Hulk says pulling one from his backpack
"Heads we go to the right, tails we go to the left?" Oki calls out
"Ok, we need to do something." Gus replies as he watches the coin sail into the air and land on the floor. " heads. We head into the narrow tunnel on the right."
"Ok, keep close together. I'll go a head a little ways to check it out. SKY!!!!! Come on, you can help me." Jesse states with concern in his voice. Sky inches closer to the entrance to the narrow tunnel. He flashes his flashlight along the narrow floor, then over the walls as far as he can see.
"It looks ok to me." He moves forward, Jesse at his side. The others wait a few minutes then begin to venture slowly into the dark hallway.
Jesse calls out to the group, " Come on, it's ok." He takes a deep breath then moves forward along the wall. HE hasn't gone more then ten feet when his flashlight begins to flicker, then suddenly goes out. "It's ok, does anybirdie have a spare light?" He asks, and listens as gasps of fright fill the tunnel. " My flashlight won't work." Chyna cries out, "Mine either" Falco says. Soon all down the line of birds the replies come back the same. THEY ARE NOW STRANDED IN TOTAL BLACKNESS.
"Dixie, I'm getting scared. Somebirdie might steal my sparkles." Little Angel says in a whisper.
"How can you think of them when we're trapped in the dark, and can't find the way back to the entrance?" Dixie asks
" Ok, I'm scared of the dark," LA holds Dixie's wing-tip tightly as she shivers in the dark. " Dixie,what if we can't get out of here?"

Hello friends, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure Post. I am busily picking up your costume photos, so if yours is ready let me know and I'll fly over for it. IF you need some help with one, just let me know and we'll see what we can create for you. Are you ready???
The others follow, trusting that Little Angel must know what lay before them. Birdies flick on their flashlights,as they are enveloped in blackened gloom. Staying close together they step cautiously along the wall, keeping as close to LA as possible. Jesse hurries to the front of the line. Not wanting to be left behind.
"Little Angel, do you know where you're going?" he asks anxiously
"NOPE" LA answers with a flash of annoyed eyes, as she continues to slowly lead down the straight entrance wall. After what seems like a long walk but in fact was only a rather short one,they come to a sudden stop in the darkness. Two tunnels lay open before them. One leading to the right, is narrow, and appears to be clear of rocks and other hidden obstacles. The second tunnel is huge looking with many large boulders scattered around the entrance.
Jesse takes a deep, slow breath, and gazes at the two tunnels before them. He looks as closely as he dare in first the one, then the other.
"AH SKY? JAKE?, birdly-conference" Jesse yells out louder then necessary, then catches himself and continues, " can you please join me for a momenttttt?"
Sky and Jake hurry in the direct that Jesse's voice had come from. They find Jesse pacing up and down in front of the two tunnel entrances. Seeing his frother SKY and Jake, he stops in mid-stride and joins them as they huddle in foot-ball style heads close and whispering in soft voices.
"What way do we go?" Jesse questions
"Don't ask me, I'm only here for the trip" Sky says, trying not to sound too nervous himself
"Let me see" Jake says looking closely at both, " well, how's bout we toss a coin? Heads we go to the right, and tails we leave all together.?"
"Why don't we just leave the same way we came in?" Jesse says, " we can always say the pathway is blocked for repairs. Permanently"
Suddenly the air is split by a high-pitched terror filled scream. Everyone freezes in fear as Little Angel screams a second time, sending chills up and down everybirdies spine.
"What? What was it? Did you see something?" Sky inquires urgently of his fister
"NO!!!! Little Angel looks white as a ghost, " AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" she screams again, " I FORGOT my red and orange SPARKLES in the Castle!" she looks so upset and tears are streaming down her green cheeks. " I left them on the table in the Banquet room. I can't go on an adventure without my sparkles. Cookie gave them to me for my hatchday!" She turns to run, but stops dead in her tracks, the entrance hall is gone!!!!!!

  Heya, Picabo!
Cool pic of you in the KB! Did you see that food Lizzie put together for the party?!

I want to birdsonally thank you so much for voting for me, so that I have this great honor! I never ever thought I would get to this great place, and I am so happy to say that without everyone's love and support, I would not have. You have no idea how much this means to me and Mom (she is all misty-eyed right now). Wow. I am so honored to have you as my friend.

Tonight we have rain, and it is warmer out. Did I mention humid?? Oh you know it! Mom has the Packers game on, and it is wet out there, too. And the place is packed (hehe) with Packers fans, in rain gear. They are leading the Vi-queens right now, and that is great! Guess we get the big chill coming our way, so that means no farmer's market on Saturday. Sigh. Maybe it will get warmer for one more trip this year.

Back to the party!

Wing hugs and beaky kisses to ya!

Kaji

  October's BOTM POST number ONE
Hello every birdie, my name is Jesse, a double-yellow headed Amazon, from the Sky Flock. I am your October BOTM candidate. This month I will be exploring many new and important developments in the avian world, as well as eggploring some controversial techniques and methods used presently and in our past all in the name of profit. I know that you will be both encouraged, and shocked at what we will discuss this month. Some of your parronts might need some Kleenex too as we look at my most important subject--" at what cost?"
Before we get started I want to take a few minutes to thank everyone for all their support, and daily votes for my fister Queen ANGEL GIRL.The words of condolence sent for the loss of our beautiful Umbrella Cockatoo Fister Sassy have touched my Momma's heart and have helped her through the last days. Because of Sassy's critical illness last month, Momma Deb's attention and energy was given to what mattered the most, loving and caring for Sassy. Thank you all for supporting my Fister even when blogging was last thing on our minds. She promises to make up for it this month by holding a fun SCOTTISH FESTIVAL to be announced.
I will work diligently to both entertain and inform you as the month progresses. October looks to be a very busy month, with our Canadian Thanksgiving and of course Halloween. Our BOTM campaign month will include a fun Halloween SPOOK-TACTUAL PARTY. I trust you shall enjoy our month spent together and I look forward to meeting many new friends, and blogging daily with lots of my long time friends too.
My history is rather ordinary compared to others int he Sky Flock. I lived with my first daddy and mommy most of my life. My daddy became ill, and went away and never returned. I missed my Daddy whom I loved early and became very angry. My Mommy did not understand me, and became afraid of me, and put me into a small cage in a far off corner to "protect" the Grandchikldren. I hated it and became even more aggressive and angry. Finally I was sold to a lady who loved me, but did not understand me, and when I bit her aggressively posted me for sale once more. Momma Debhad always wanted a DYH Zon and saw the ad. I was the second larger parrot to move into what became the Sky Flock. Momma has had to work hard with me about my biting, and I still do if given the chance. However, I have my very own room to fly in, a best buddy Ollie, a Quaker, a TV and lots of love. Momma says I am 200% better then the day I arrived. It just proves that hands-off parrots can be greyt companions too. I have my forever home.
Tomorrow we will begin by looking at some very controversial methods used to stop biting in companion Parrots.
with love and hugs
Jesse 227428

  Day 29--Igonish Surfin' Lessons with Pookie
Good morning everybirdie, Angel Girl here from the warm, sunny Ingonish beach with today's BOTM blog. It is awesome tanning by the ocean, as the waves roll in softly. We have been having a blast swimming in the ocean, and getting ready for a few quick surfing lessons. I'm not so sure on the bird on a board thing, but it sounds like fun, and I know Little Angel, Dixie and Laka are really good at it. Pookie is gonna give us some tips and pointers on how to surf. Should be lots of fun, and he's a real pro.
" Angel Girl, come on, time to take surfin' lessons" Kaji and Lizzie call as they head to the other end of the beach, were a large number of birds are eagerly waiting for Pookie to instruct them on the hows and why's of safe surfin'. Pookie, climbs up on a piece of drift-wood and begins,
"Let's start with the obvious: Surfboards are made to float on the water. They have a natural center of gravity. If you were to lay any surfboard in a swimming pool, it would come to rest the same way every time. This is what we want to do when you lay on a surf board. That is to have the board remain in the same relation to the water as it was without your weight on it, just a bit lower in the water. A good tip is to find this balance point and lay on your board then make a mark right at your beak-tip. This is a spot best made with a bit of wax or a magic marker. It is a reference point that enables you to put your beak on the same spot every time so the board will react to your weight the same way every time."
Everybirdie lays their board flat on the sand, and Pookie and Sky help them make the mark with a red marker.
"Ok, now do not paddle with both wings simultaneously because this will cause the board to speed up and slow down in the water and you will not be able to maintain constant hull speed through the water. Always paddle with the same wing-stroke, one wing, then the other." The birdies head to the edge, place their boards on the water, climb on, and start to paddle. " Now sit up carefully on your board, try not to t..." Too late Hulk, Gus and BB tip their surf boards over.
"Now it's time to learn how to stand up. Lie on your chest, your head up, looking ahead. Put your wings on the board beside your shoulders tips down like you were going to do a push up. Push your upper body up while at the same time you sweep your feet under you, laying them on the stringer, the line down the middle of the board, so your weight is centered along the stringer" Everybirdie keeps trying until they all stand up nervously. "Ok, here comes a wave, let the wave pick up the board, keep your wings out to balance, and have fun" Pookie watches as the others wobble, some fallin' others keeping their balance,and a few cheat and fly off their boards into the air.
"WOW, this is greyt" LA yells to Dixie
"WEEEEE almost as good as in Hawaii" Dixie grins, keeping his board smoothly moving on the surface.
"AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" SPLASH" Sky wipes out into the water sputtering

  Day 28--Ingonish day 1
Hello everybirdie, Angel Girl here with today's BOTM post. I apologize for the lack of blogs the last few days. My typist, Momma Deb was devastated by the loss of our beautiful Cockatoo fister Angel Sassy. It left her lost for words, and I hope that you all have understood. Today we continue on our Cape Breton Tour. Thanks to Ms BB who lead the trail ride to Ingonish, Cape Breton Island, we can now begin to explore, this majestic gem of nature together.
On the east side of Cape Breton Highlands park is located Ingonish. Know for it's fabulous Keltic Lodge resort a world-class 18-hole golf course designed by Stanley Thompson. Golf Magazine ranked it as one of the top 100 courses in the world and the best public course in Canada. George Knudson suggested leaving your clubs behind and just walking the course. The course has been certified by the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program, a program aimed at conserving wildlife habitat in spaces used for other purposes.
The Park area is made up of a mix of Acadian forest of deciduous trees such a Maple, Ash and conifers, mainly at lower elevations. Boreal Froest is found on the plateau and upland areas. Moose, black bears, coyotes and Bald Eagles are the main wildlife inhabitants to this area. Northern Gannets can often be seen from the park's coastal hiking trails, e.g. the Skyline Trail. The park's forests provide habitat for the uncommon Bicknell's Thrush. The Gaspé Shrew, the local name for a smallish variety of the Long-tailed Shrew, Sorex dispar, can be found on rocky slopes in the park. The first nest records of Boreal Owl for Nova Scotia were found in the south west corner of this park
There are many activities to do when visiting this Cape Breton Highlands location. Some of these activities include camping, hiking, sightseeing, swimming, fishing, geocaching, cycling, golfing, picnicking, weddings, kayaking and surfing There are endless swimming options available for all ages in the park. There are five main salt water ocean beaches . The ocean beaches include Ingonish Beach, North Bay Beach, Black Brook Beach and La Block Beach. The two freshwater beaches include Freshwater Lake and Warren Lake. Freshwater Lake and Ingonish Beach are both supervised with a lifeguard during the summer months.
" Come on Angel Girl, let's go swimming" Little Angel calls through the tent door, " it's gorgeous outside today, and maybe we can try some surfing later"
"Oh, ok, give me a few minutes to find my bikini" Angel Girl giggles at her fister's eggcitement about life and having fun.
"Dixie" LA calls, " We're goin' swimming." Little Angel hurries to find Dixie and her beach towel
"You think Pookie will help us learn to surf?" Hulk asks as Little Angel rushes past,
"He is already on the beach getting ready for lessons after lunch" Chyna adds checking her feathers in a long mirror the girls bought in Cheticamp.

  Hi Picabo
Thanks for the BioFreeze, that really helps.
What a milonga that was last night! The barrel racing and the mutton busting were both really exciting events, and 'tiels ruled the night! From Queen Snowflake to many of the winners in the events, including Spot, the mutton busting champ, 'tiels were on top! Thanks to Kiddo and his team of great planners, picture takers, and trophy makers! Thanks also to Sam for the great music! It was a night to be remembered for all. We all had a great time, Lizzie's food was extraordinary, as usual, and it was just fun to see everybirdie.
Falco was flattered to be one of the princesses, that was some tough competition. I didn't do well on my sheep, but it was sure fun to try! The one big problem, besides our computer acting up, is that it's just impossible to talk to everybirdie at the events, it's too crowded. Still, we wouldn't trade those nights for anything.
Hope today is bringing you sunshine and more warm weather. Mom is going out to dinner tonight at Khalil's, meeting some friends, but we'll have her all day long! We can even tolerate her watching football, as long as she's with us. Have a wonderful day, get lots of cuddles if you can. Hugs, Willie

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Congrats to Kaji!, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Morning Picky Pal from a very sad Angel Christy
On this sad day, it is with a very heavy heart that I pass along the tragically sad news of the passing of our precious Sassy, she was the baby bird we have all been praying for! We do not have any magic words of condolence, we already know there is none! God Bless you momma Deb, you have done nothing wrong, but everything right, nobody could have done more! Our Angel of Mercy, our dear aunt Eva, called me this morning for this update, and as we sat crying on the phone, both of our hearts were taken back to similar losses in our own lives! The Lord listened to all your prayers, but even the Master Carpenter can only do so much, it was Sassy's time to go home! We pray for Sassy's acceptance in the house of or Lord, she will be in the good company of so many our precious Angels that have went before her! Do the best you can to have a good Friday, TGIF, give my love to all in your home, se ya tomorrow...

Love through eternity Angel Christy, Jenny, & our sad flock

  Mr Picky-Boo, much love from Angel Christy
...thank you for coming to my page, you make this Angel feel so proud to have earthly friends like you! I have welcomed coach Snowy into the house of our Lord Jesus Christ! He is a little bit lost right now, but I will show him the short cuts to Heavenly happiness, and where to be on pizza crust nights! Your bro Alfie is so handsome and quite the flirt, but I love him also! It seems to me as a casual observer, that there is always a health issue with many of our parrots and parronts, my daddy included! He wants to reconnect with me, but I have told him to be patient, his time will come soon enough! He is doing all he can to prolong his passing, and thank God for the Veteran's Administration, for their caring love and medical support, contrary to what you may have heard about them, THEY ARE THE VERY BEST! Don't be a stranger my dear friend, and BTW, it there is a baseball season next year, would you consider being our White Hawks Coach, please think about it! My best love to aunt Sunny and your fabulous flock, you Yucatanerrs are very loved...

Eternal love from your Angel team mate & now spiritual leader, Angel Christine Dijon

PS~How about my little sister Ms Lady Love, she is our BOTD...

  My dear Picabo, from Angel Christy
...I am still trying to deal with the fact that our dear coach Snowy slipped away to the Rainbow Bridge on Sunday, such a sad day for us Cockatoos! My heart is broken, but I get to see his handsome face more often now! God is good, but life can be cruel, sad but true! Today dad won't have time for a lot of notes, he is complying with doctors orders and keeping his legs elevated as much as possible! That is very uncomfortable for him, he is so active! He is however improving, thanks to all who showed genuine concern! BC folks are the best ever!! Dad just spent 2 hours cleaning around LaLo's cage, she is such a slob! Happy hump day dear friends, life is good, love each other, and give my love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

Love for all time, Angel Christy & my loving family
