Three weeks ago I sustained an injury to my back from another bird in the flock and because of the injury I can not longer use my feet. The vet wanted to euthanize me but mom just could not do it. She loves me so much. The Vet said I would have no quality of life without being able to perch,stand,or walk. Thank you so much every birdie for coming by today to congratulate me on being your Queen today. Your visits mean so much to me and my mom and I appreciate all your prayers for me. It is a great pleasure to see you all on my page with your well wishes and congratulations- . There are so many generous birds and parronts here on BC from Miss Lucy's mom Susan who stopped by to congratulate me before going to the hospital to check on Lucy's dad. That brought tears to mom's eyes and then there are Romeo,Sugar,Max- ie, Christy,Jenny Lynn, Trilly, Star, Hulk, and BJ along with so many numerous other birds like Falco,Mayo,Chic- klet,Joey, Snowball, Oatie, Miss Lucy, Merlin, and Chico. Then there is Sam who is a friend of my flock and a most handsome and distinguished Grey. He is going to dance with me tonight and being that I can not use my feet to dance with him he is going to hold me in his wings and we will just do are dancing in the air. Then when Sam is done dancing with me I know he will gently place me back in my wheelchair. Oatie came by today with his flock and gave me flowers. Gabe who is a most gentle and kind M2 and who is now in the kissing booth came by yesterday to rock me gently to sleep so I would get plenty of rest for my big day today. All the kind and caring birds here on BC have shown me such kindness and gentleness after my injury and have brought tears to my mom's eyes. She and I are so very grateful for them along with the wonderful prayers for me. We thank Pico, Alex and the girls and Big Baby for offering me some corn bread because I need to eat more,both Ranebeau and Sugar for there compassion, and all the other numerous birds. Mom and I wish we could list them all but we can't. All we can do is thank them from the bottom of mom's heart and my little quaker heart. Thanks again for your heartwarming visits,congratu- lations, prayers, and for the well wishes. Last but not least I went to thank my good friend Snowball(Snowy) for nominating me for BOTD and letting me have this wonderful honor.

Hugs Queen Charlie

  Aunt Theresa hears a banging on the door
when she goes to see who it could be so early in the morning, she's not surprised to see Cookie dragging his wagon.

He runs in to see Charlie and tells her how when they woke up this morning there was SNOW on the ground - so he just HAD to get outa town !

But, look, I brought all the stuff so we can color our Easter eggs today :) I have pink, yellow, green, blue, purple, orange, and red dye and even a white crayon so we can make designs before we dip them !

  Lots of rain this weekend Charlie
Let's have a movie weekend - I'll go out and make us some popcorn and get the root beer. You go through the stacks of dvd's and see what you want to watch.

Maybe later aunt Theresa will let us help her make another pirate house. Then you'll have one too ! Cause as soon as Cap'n Sam inventories the treasure I'm going to get some for you :)

  Oh yes, Charlie
it was an exciting voyage ! We went through a worm hole, made friends with the ospreys and fought the dreaded BC Squawk-a-tiels ! Then we found treasure !

But still, it's good to be home where I'm able to come and visit you ! That is before the winter comes back - can you believe the weather guessers are saying snow for Tuesday at my house ? YIKES ! I think I'll stay here for a few days - aunt Theresa won't notice one more beak . . .

I miss you Charlie ! Mom sent me the cutest little pirate house (thank you !) to keep next to my bunk while on the voyage !

Today we're doing battle ~ scary ~ but don't worry, I'm brave and will bring you back some of the treasure !

  From behind his back Cookie pulls out a card
If you won't be my Valentine
I'll scream, I'll yell, I'll bite.
I'll cry aloud, I'll start to whine
If you won't be my Valentine.
I'll frown and fret, I'll mope and pine, and
It will serve you right ---
If you won't be my Valentine
I'll scream, I'll Yell, I'll Bite!

He stops and grins at Charlie :)

ps. we got the cutest card and bird house in the mail ! Mom hung the card by my cage so I can see it and put the little birdhouse next to the tv so we can watch the glittery little bird

get out some paper and crayons to start making a list of all the things they want to do come spring . . .

1. pick a daisy
2. ride their bike
3. picnic
4. catch a pollywog
. . .

Then they get distracted by the crayons and start to draw pretty pictures around the list . . .

  Cookie and Charlie snuggle with mama Theresa
for a Christmas story . . .

BRIGHT CHRISTMAS by Andrew Clements (abridged)

I have always been an angel, Always.
I've never needed a clock or a calendar,
because here where I live
there's really no time at all.

People sometimes think that Christmas came suddenly,
one holy night. I know better.
Other things came first - amazing things, beautiful things, important things.
And I saw them all
Because when a message goes from heaven to earth, it's not a letter
It's an angel
And the angel doesn't just carry the message
The angel IS the message.

I remember the star in the sky above Bethlehem.
All the songs and messages
we had ever brought to earth
they all led up to that one night,
and they lit up the sky.

We were watching over Joseph and his wife
when the innkeeper sent them away
We knew where they were going
We knew they would be safe and warm
in the quiet of the stable.

And Mary, I will always remember her face when she heard us sing.
Mary knew that this child was bringing the
great truth.

In the hills above Bethlehem, I remember the faces of the shepherds, looking up.
It was time for the great truth to shine on the Earth.

Earth now had a heavenly light of its own, and it made me sing louder and sweeter.
Our song was like the smile of God.

Once I sing a song, the song never stops.
It's like a star that burns forever.
Christmas is the brightest and the happiest song I ever sang.
The star is still shining,
and I am still singing,
and the earth is still singing back.

Christmas Blessings my friends - with love from Cookie and mom Mary

  Cookie comes knocking on Charlie's door
he has a surprise for her ! A sleigh ride ! Since there's plenty of snow with more on the way, he's brought a pony friend with his sleigh. Aunt Theresa gets Charlie all bundled up and then tucks a warm blanket around her and Cookie as the pony takes off down the driveway - the two wave bye-bye and promise to be back soon !

Charlie and Cookie are hungry and tired. They've brought a collection of pretty leaves back with them and they are going to make some kind of project with them ! They are so creative after all ! But first they need a snack ! They see mama Theresa has some yummy apples all cut up and waiting for them :) They each give her a snuggle and start munching away . . .

  Hi my dear friend
Are you going to be lonely while Happy is gone ? I'll come and spend lots of time with you ! I'm not afraid of cats !

What's it like at your house, so I know what to pack ? I was so right ! Mom packed summer away last weekend and yesterday hit 73 - har har ! We even slept last night with the windows open again . . .

Last night I played with one of my ladders - I was carrying it around trying to find just the right place for it. I decided that it belonged in my cage. So I dragged it over, but couldn't get it up there. I gave a good squawk and dad helped by giving me a lift. It always makes mom laugh when I start on a decorating project ! Maybe we can find some projects to do here too !

you were all sticky from our baking so aunt Theresa HAD to give you a bath ! How about now that we've cleaned the kitchen and you, we snuggle up and read a book ? I have a great one called CHICKADEES AT NIGHT ! They play lots of the same games we do and do lots of the same things we do !

The apples look so good they each have a few nibbles as they peel and chop. . . and a few more nibbles. Charlie looks at Cookie after a while and asks "can we make just "crisp" ?

head to the orchard and Cookie helps Charlie onto the hayride out to the orchard. The farmer helps him attach the wagon to the back so when they get there he can take Charlie around. Besides, the wagon is a good place to put the apples as they pick them !

He tells Charlie on the way out that his mom sure does get up early ! She likes the quiet before daddy wakes up ! Then he giggles . . . daddy hits each new day running - mom needs time :)

  Hi Charlie
Hello everyone, Casey here with today's blog. Once more I wish to thank you all for your continuing support of my BOTM guest. I apologize for lack of blogs on Thursday and Friday. Momma Deb had made prior plans that could not be changed once she found out I was running this month. I hope to have no other technical problems from here onwards.
Queen Muffin stands very still listening at the opened door. Suddenly she hears a terrifying scream from Casey. Slamming the door tightly she leans against it, trying to catch her breath.
"HELLO. IS anyone home?" comes the familiar voice of Little Angel. " Come on Ranebeau, let's go find where everybirdie is"
Little Angel and Ranebeau head towards the long corridor of doors. Turning the first corner they run into a frightened Queen Muffin.
"Oh my, what is wrong Queen Muffin, your Highness?" Ranebeau asks through a mouthful of juicy red pear.
"Listen!" Little Angel says her wing to her hears. " I hear Casey. Isn't that Kiddo's voice too?"
"YES, it is. They went into this room. We need to figure out a plan to rescue them"
The three friends put their heads together to discuss just how to do it. In hushed tones they plot and figure their safest course of action.
"Kiddo, what was that?" Casey asks turning a very pale shade of colour.
"Let's move over there, under that large leafy bush and hide" Kiddo quickly leads the way. " IF we stay very still and don't make a sound we should be safe!"
Listening intently, Casey and Kiddo hear the soft trodding of a large animal on the pathway, moving towards them. The sound suddenly stops and the jungle becomes very still and calm once more.
"I think we're safe to continue now" Kiddo tells Casey. The two explorers move off towards the east, keeping quiet as they stick close together on the winding path.
"WOW. Look at that Kiddo" Casey exclaims pointing to a family of antelope. They stopped to look at the visitors before continuing their trip to the water for a drink.
"Follow me" Kiddo says to Casey as he ducks under a fern.
Casey is startled by the amazing beautiful before him as he
takes in the waterfalls, vines and lovely pond covered by water Lilies. Grabbing a close by vine Casey climbs up to get a better look at the view...........
see ya all tomorrow
with love and votes
