  October BOTM POST number seventeen
Good morning everybirdie, Jesse here once more with your BOTM Adventure Post.
After hiking along the path for a long while, I decide to stop for a moment to rest, and seeing a large rock, I sit down. Well, I look up and see that the grass and trees are up-side-down.
I shake my head, and rub my tired eyes, "I must be seeing things" so peaking another look up, I see that the grass, trees and everything from the downside is now on the up-side. " EEEEEEEE!"
"What's wrong Jesse?" Chyna asks then suddenly realizes she is standing on a cloud in the sky. She looks above and sees what had scared Jesse so much. The trees are above her head. As Jesse and Chyna makes this discovery, it becomes apparent that every other birdie has also realized that they are floating in the air, or is the ground floating?
"Don't panic" Angel says, " trying to reach the rock? Cloud? that Jesse is sitting on. He ducks quickly as a Duck flies by upside down. " Now this is too weird"
" Where are we BB?" Sky asks her, hoping there is a logical answer to why they are now below the ground or above it? Sky shakes his red head, this is getting confusing. " I sure could use a pickle right now?" he says to himself
" It must be " Uppie-Downsie Land" BB answers, not eggactly certain where they were. She looks around at the ground above her. " look, in the distance, I can see the tower of the BC Castle" she points to the very far distance, and the small flag that sits on the top of the main tower. A wave of relief washes through the group of Corn Maze Adventurers. But how to get there from here?
"Look the path is up there" BonBon says to Spot. She tilts her head to see it better.
"How are we going to follow the path, when we are up here, or down here, in the air?" Cappy questions
"If we are upside down then we have to figure out how to get back down? Up, there?" Jenny-Lynn explains, concern in her voice. " I knew I should have brought my cell phone"
Jesse, sighs, scratching his head. If they were now upside down, or down-side up, how could they get there from here? He looked at the blue sky and clouds that carried on as far as the eye could see, then at the ground, the path, the trees above. " I wonder if we can fly down there, or up there? SPOT?" Jesse explains his idea, and Spot agrees to try to fly down or up to the ground to see if he could find a way back to where they belonged. Taking off into the air Spot circles twice then heads for the ground above, but begins to fall towards the sky where the others are watching hopefully from below. Spot hits the sky, ground with a bump, then stands up.
"Where am I?" he asks out loud, brushing the dust off his feathers. HE looks and sees that he is alone, beside a large field of daisies. All the others have disappeared from sight.
"HELPPPPPPPPP!" he calls and his voice echos in the empty field. HE is all alone in some strange place, " JESSE? Poppa SKY?" he calls, but realizes he has disappeared from their sight.

  Hi my Angelbird
XOXOXOXO

HAPPY HUMPDAY
Cori and Angel sip the warm apple cider and snuggle close to each other. its too cold and rainy to go outside so they sit in front of the fireplace and watch the flames flicker. Cori notices some of the apple cider is on her Angels face so she kisses it off.

this is what mom does when my nares look a little red. she taks a cotton ball and dabs it in vinegar and wipes my nares. then she cuts of a piece of the aloe vera plant and squeezes the juice on my nares and rubs it in. that usually takes the redness away. your mom might also want to wipe down the inside of your cage with vinegar in case there is something in there that is making you itchy


mom finally brought in her all her house plants today except one. thats her20 year old hibiscus tree and the pot weighs about 50 pounds. it never bloomed this summer because the deer were so diligent pruning it. as a matter of fact they ate every leaf off of it except for the one branch on the top which was too high for them to reach.

love your Cori XOXOXO

Hello. Hello. Quit that. Quit that. Geesh. Geesh. It's me Jesse, the real Jesse with today's BOTM Adventure Post.
Snowflake looks at her double, " Two Snowflakes are better than one heehee" Her double laughs too.
"You know this could be fun, especially when time for grooming." Cookie says, " then again how can I tell which me, is me?" he frowns and his double copies his every move.
Jesse stands tall, trying to see if he can find a logical answer to this double-trouble. He finds BonBon sitting on the path in front of her double. She is carefully grooming out the spider webs from her feathers.
"What are you doing?" says Jesse.
"Preening! After all, I am a pretty bird! I can't be seen with this junk on my feathers. So when I found this mirror, I decided it was a good idea to clean up some!"
"MIRROR!" shouts Jesse. "Hey Spot, these are mirrors!" Jesse yells eggcitedly.
Spot looks critically at his double and says," I hope I don't really look this bad! He starts to preen as well."
"Aaaaaagh" says Jesse. "We are still missing birds! Clean up later!" Jesse is thrilled to learn that the doubles are in fact mirror-images. " we can keep going. Our doubles are just reflections in mirrors. That's why they do everything we do exactly, they are us, only doubles." Jesse scratches his head,, "Ok, that was even confusing to me, but the point is, we can leave the doubles behind."
Snowflake frowns, "I kinda like my double. She's beautiful, and loves to giggle just like me."
Kiddo comes to where Jesse is standing, a sad, worried look on his face. "OH NO! Where is my SweetPepper??!! I have no idea, and it is really scaring me that my wifebird in now one of the missing. We need to find the Macaw Guard right away for some help. Maybe George the Tiger could help with his superior smelling abilities."
Jesse agrees, and helping Kiddo up onto a large boulder, he waits as Kiddo calls "GEORGE! GEORGE! We need your help!"
"I sure hope he hear me." Kiddo says climbing back down. " we have to locate the missing birds."
"We will, don't worry. We can't be too far from the Castle now." Jesse replies encouragingly. " let's get everybirdie ready and keep going. We'll be safe at the castle soon."
Kiddo and Jesse wander around the group of double-birdies, telling everyone the news that they will soon be at the Castle. Bidding farewell to themselves they leave their double behind, as they start off once more along the worn path. The ground slants upwards as they continue to walk quickly along. The late day sun feels warm on their backs. After a while Jesse stops for a break and sits down on a large rock,looks up, and seeeeeeeeeeeeeees

Hi everybird, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. It is such a relief to be free from those creepy, crawly, ucky black Monster sized Spiders. I didn't wanta say anything but I think that some of them are the Giant Birdeater Spiders. "YUCK, is all I can say."
"Where are Sweetpepper, Apache and Pearl gone?" Kiddo asks in fear for his wife-bird and friends.
"Not again" Jesse says his yellow face turning a ghostly white. "they have to be here, I just saw them a moment ago!" Jesse brings to run back and forth searching under every bush, behind every tree and asks everybirdie, but he is unable to find his missing friends. Sadly he returns to where Sky is in deep conversation with Jake and Spot.
" We have to get to the Castle. We can't delay. Our friends are gone, and we have to save them." Sky's voice hesitates for a moment, before finishing his sentence, " before it's too late"
"Everybirdie" Jesse calls out loudly, " we are going to follow a path I found searching for Sweetpepper and the others. It looks well traveled, it must lead to the Castle. We have to hurry, it's getting late, the sun will be setting soon."
Jesse leads out, following the path, watching carefully for anything "odd" he might find along it. Everything is fine, and he begins to relax, the birdies are making greyt time, they will be safely at the Castle soon. Then he can return with help to find their missing friends.
"JESSE?" Spot flies up to walk with him, have you noticed anything weird?
"Nope, everything looks fine. WHY?" Jesse asks an edge of concern to his voice.
"No reason, well, maybe it might be odd, maybe not but have you noticed that every tree is planted beside another one that is the same?"
Jesse looks at the trees beside the path, and certainly it is true, every tree has a perfect match to it. He continues to watch as he walks quickly along. Every rock and every bush also has a double.
"Yeah, it sure is odd Spot." Jesse turns his head to speak to Spot and let's out a terrified scream, " SPOT? SPOT?" he yells in terror, as his eyes fall upon not one but two Spots. Jesse screams again, and a perfect echo follows, causing him to snap his head to the right to come beak to beak with "HIMSELF! AHHHHHHHHHHH!"
"SKY, JAKE, come quickly!" the two Jesse's scream in echo of one another. Jesse tries to get away from himself, but his double follows every move he makes. he sees Sky and Jake coming his direction, and stops. There are two of each of them, in fact everywhere Jesse looks there are two of everybirdie. The others realize that they too have a perfect double and fear spreads like fire among the group.
"Falco? BooBoo?" Hulk asks then backs away unsure of which one is the real Falco and the real BooBoo.

  Oh my Sweet Angelbird
i so enjoyed sharing the candy apple with you and it made your kisses even more sweeter if that is even possible.

how is Twixies eye doing? i hope you and Pepper are over your cold and feeling all better by now. is mom going over to take care of baby Charlie as much as before?

the only good thing that mom can see about this fall weather is at least their are plenty of acorns falling from the oak trees. for a few years we didn't have any and mom felt very bad for ll the creatures outside that depend on them for winter food. at least they will be happy this winter.

love your Cori

Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. What a sticky, icky mess we have found ourselves in. Giant Spiders everywhere, and no where to run. Then all of a sudden I found a clearing. I was eggcited to see our way of escape, that is until the air is shattered by the terrified scream of Dixie.
Dixie is very upset and frightened about what the spiders would do to Little Ange. He runs in circles around the tree where she is hanging from their thick webs! Dixie screams for someone to come to his aid," Please help me reach my wife bird and cut her loose" He tries but is too small to reach her at this point! He asks permission to get on top of Poppa Sky's head so he can have a better reach of her and then pulling off a thick branch from the Mulberry tree to reach LA with, he stands carefully on Poppa Sky's head trying to balance with his twisted toes,all the while reaching up with the long branch to his Little Angel! Little Angel reaches down breaking through the webbing she is caught in and grabs the branch that Dixie is holding out to her, suddenly losing her balance she falls from the webbing and tumbles down onto Dixie, as both birds fall sliding down Poppa Sky's red feathered back!
Dixie kisses his Little Angel. "Oh Dixie you saved my life. I'm sure those black Monster Spiders were going to eat me for dinner." Little Angel sniffs, wiping a tear from her eye. Sky checks his little fister over and seeing she and Dixie are ok, he stands tall as he can, and looks intently around to find a way to escape from this mess. It is while he is busy searching that Jenny-Lynn arrives ta his side. "SKY, I have a plan." she whispers into Sky's ear. HE nods his red head several times as he listens to her plan. After she finishes he clears his voice to get everybirds attention.
"Jenny-Lynn has a plan. She thinks if we were to form a long line and use sticks to break the webs, we can easily bust free of the spider's trap and get away from here. BonBon has a lighter." He frowns, thinking to himself, she ought not to have it in the first place, taking note to lecture his daughter later. " We can use it to burn the webs off the trees and bushes, our sticks can tear them down from the path ahead of us." Seeing no other plan, everybirdie lines up, wing to wing forming a greyt line of feathers, and slowly they work their way forward, removing webs as they go. It seems a very long time before they reach the end of the spiders home, and bid them a quick good-bye. The Spiders glare angry eyes at the retreating birds. "Just wait, they think they are free from troubles...." The Spiders hiss and laugh as they return to their damaged webs. " they'll wish they were here again!"
Jesse stops for a moment to get his bearings. He sits on a tree that had fallen to the ground. HE asks SKY to find Apache so he can use the binoculars. Sky searches but returns with Kiddo in a panic, " Apache, Sweetpepper and Pearl are gone!"

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!!!!!

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........

  Hello Angel~
I hope you are having a great day! It's still wet and windy up here but that is the way it is suppose to be this time of the year.
I'm helping mom get some cooking done since she goes back to work tonight and has to work 8 days straight. Having some meals done ahead of time really helps out.
Mom got the computer working this morning and so far so good! She deleted some programs and that may have been the problem. I know! It's a miracle that she figured any of this out!! Ian put Avast security on it and mom started to notice every time it would freeze and have to restart that it would say Avast had updated. It must have been blocking just about every site mom went to. Jennifer's desktop was not doing it so mom deleted it and another program dad put on and it's working this morning.
Dad already ordered the new parts to upgrade and they will be here sometime next week. Hopefully dad will be home sometime next week too so he can put it together. It's really not that hard but mom would rather dad do it so she doesn't mess anything up!
I do hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

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..

  October BOTM POST number eight
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.

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.

  Hi Angelbird
BOO! I bet i scared you. dot be scared its me Cori. I'm dressed as a scary ghost. i brought you a candy apple which we can share. be careful its sticky. as Angel and Cori eat their beaks touch and stick together as they give each other a long lingering kiss.

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 your Cori

  October BOTM POST number five
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!!!!!!

  October BOTM POST number TWO
Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with today's BOTM blog. Well, I have changed my mind. NO ladies, I'm not a girl birdie, but I was thinkin' long and hard and spoke with my friend Jake from the K Kritter Koral and have decided rather then doing a month of educational blogs " We're Birds and we gotta have FUN!!!" Halloween is just around the corner, ok, well many corners so this month with the help of my lovely fisters Queen Angel Girl and of course Little Angel Adler we're going to try our wing at the BC Castle Corn Maze.
What I really want from each of you is your HALLOWEEN Photo for my Gallery. Give it a try, edit yourself with a scary, funny or cute costume on, and I'll pick it up and post it for everybirdie to enjoy. For any of you birdies who have a little trouble with editing Momma Deb has agreed to HELP ME edit a photo for you. What I require is !) a clear photo of you in all your beautifulness, and 2) a costume idea or theme. Now, if you like surprises just the photo will do, and we;ll see what we can come up with for you. It does take time to complete all the photos so be patient please. My Momma Deb had a horrible month with our fister Sassy so critically ill, and her flight to Rainbow Bridge..
My handsome frother Mr SKY has said he will pick up the Spotlight blogs after the month and share all the information with you that I have researched. We think my Momma needs to laugh and have fun too now. She cries a lot right now. So, everybirdie get ready for some eggciting, spooky and terrifying adventures in October. You too. I watched the Macaw Guards busily working on it this morning and might I say it sure looks difficult. I hope we make it out ok.
Jesse, stands staring into the corn maze opening. A sense of fear and dread runs up and down his spine. The birdies gather close around him, peering into the high stalks of dried corn. Wide, frightened eyes look from one to another. No birdie is ready to take that first step into the maze. SKY comes strolling forward, intent on being the leader into the Adventure. He walks boldly up to the entrance then suddenly comes to a stop, feathers ruffles, head feathers standing on end. He looks into the blackness, then turns and looks at the others standing bathed in bright fall sunshine. Turning slowly back, he looks once more into the Corn Maze. It is totally black inside. No light. Yet nothing to block out the light. " Ok, Jesse, you lead on" Sky states, stepping carefully away from the scary darkness.
Jesse takes a deep, nervous breath, and moves slowly forwards. The others hold back for a moment before moving behind him as one large bird. Each birdie staring in the abyss ahead. Little Angel pushes past Sky and BB, and comes up beside Jesse. She looks at the Corn Maze. " Oh, come on everyone" she heads boldly into the entrance and walks carefully along the edge near to the wall.

  Hello Angel~
I hope you are having a great day! We got the car back this morning! YAY! New transmission and an oil change and he is in great shape. Mom is going to have to remember she doesn't have to go really, really slow until he grabs 1st gear now! Felt a bit strange but we are so happy to have it done!
We got the linen closet all cleaned out and made room to store the huge package of paper towels and toilet paper. Mom also got a few cases of bottled water she is keeping in there too. There was an e-coli contamination out on Mercer Island and it closed down all the restaurants for days and everyone had to boil their water. We use a Brita filter but mom doesn't think that it will filter e-coli. She has decided to give me, Mandy and Merlin bottle water to drink just to be safe. They have no idea where the contamination came from and mom doesn't want to take the chance it might happen here. Maybe she is just being too paranoid but she would rather be safe than sorry!
Kaji is only 11 away from his 10K so he will be there very soon. The 10k page is ready for a party so please stop on by tomorrow and congratulate him and grab some food!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  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

  Hi Angel
mom had to laugh today at the news when one of the local tv stations was advertising its news stations it stated that they even were correct in their weather forecast for a few days last week. last night all they did was predict that bad storms and weather coming our way and the severe rains we were going to get. well it got very windy and dark and blew a lot of leaves on the ground and then it rained for a total of 5 minutes. tonight lots of thunder and lightening and maybe a sprinkle of rain. temperatures still haven't plummeted as predicted. i have a slight sniffle so mom put me to bed a little early tonight.

love Cori

  Hi My Angelbird
i am so happy to hear from you. Cori dabs at her Angelbirds nares with aloe vera kleenex and makes him a hot toddy with a little rum in it. thy snuggle against each other and watch the leaves softly falling from the trees.

Boo Boo and I were outside today on the porch while dad tried to water the lawn. watching the water sprinkler was amazing as the water arched overhead. every time dad walked by Boo Boos cage she gave him a kiss. she never kiss mom because she is always fussing over her and her cage and Boo Boo doesn't like that.. mom could never fuss enough for me. i want to stick to her like glue

love Cori

  Heya, Angel and Pepper!
Oh, no fooling! It was 79 degrees and that wind blew in around 2 ...and now we are at 54?! Hope you are staying warm! Mom says it will be chilly tonight, so she will probably put on the heater. Guess this is what they call the 'pneumonia front'?

Your buddy,

  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
