After we lost our precious, little Daisy, I was at the Bird store and saw him in one of the cages. I had wanted an ekkie for quite awhile. So I asked about him and learned that he needed to be rehomed. His previous owner had two seriously ill children and had to give him and his flockmates up. He was only two years old and just starting to talk. He was very scared the first time he was taken out of his cage. However, I visited him almost everyday for a month. He soon began to look forward to our visits. He also began to recognize me when I came into the store, and wanted to come out and visit me. One day my husband was with me and asked me when I was going to bring him home. So I wrote out a check, ordered his cage and made arrangements as to when I'd pick him up. It was an excellent decision. He's a delightful, wonderful bird and is very happy in his forever home. He said about three phrases at first. Now, 5 years later, he says about 3 dozen different things, including telling our ringneck, Princess, to "Stop it!" when she's shrieking. He loves to talk and has the cutest little voice! My favorite is, "I go poopy, Mama. I'm a GOOD BOY!" He does, too, and he is!! He's potty-trained..

Hi! My name is Finnegan

I am a Solomon Islands Eclectus from White Lake, MI.

Finny, Finny-Guinny Mr. Finnegan, Buddy, Mama's Boy

8 years old   M

Solomon Islands Eclectus

CHEESE, pecans, CHEESE, grape juice, CHEESE, apples, eggs and just about ANY FOOD Mama and Daddy are eating! Did I mention CHEESE? Oh, and I almost forgot, blueberry yogurt, yummm!

My boing, the baker's rack out on the sun porch (when the weather's warm) and my playstand. I also like to hang out on the fold-down door of my cage, and of course, my fav...on Mama and Daddy.

Touching my head or my back with your hands.

Mommy and Daddy love me SO much that they share their food with me. I get to try so many new and delicious things. What bird wouldn't love that? I LOVE to eat, so that's really high on my priority list. I love to take showers with Mommy, and she and I constantly talk to each other. She's taught me many new words and phrases. I love to talk to Mommy, but not Daddy, although I'm getting better about that. Mommy gives me lots of kissies, too, and I say "Kissy" and make the kissy sound. In all, I say about 30 different things now.

I LOVE being blown dry with the hair dryer after my shower with Mama. I talk a lot, but stop talking when my Daddy enters the room. Best of all, I am potty trained and tell Mama when I have to poopy. I don't happen to think that's quirky, do you?.

What's for dinner??.

Today was a good summer day. I got to visit with my uncle and cousin. They came to help my parronts move heavy things. But, I got lots of attention! Looks like the next 3 days will be sunny with 83 to 86 degrees. I hear we are having BeeBeeQ kabobs on Sunday. Treats for my feets and on a stick ... what could be better?

  Hi Finnegan
Hope the vet visit went well for Lucy and Dolly. All that fresh fish, cole slaw, and pie sound delicious.
Last night mom actually got some sleep, unlike the night before when she just couldn't get comfortable. After a glorious day at the pool, we got her for the whole rest of the afternoon and evening, YAY! And we'll have her tomorrow since she has an eye appointment, and again on Thursday or Friday when the cabinets arrive. All in all, it will be a good week for us, if not for mom. Today it is sunny and bright, although the weather guessers say it's going to rain. The rest of the week is going to be beautiful as well. It figures, since mom won't be able to be at the pool for at least 2 of those days. Anyway, I hope you are having a nice summer day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

This summer weather has just been crazy, severe rains, storms, heavy flooding all over, out of control wild fires, and oppressive heat! About all we can do is try to adjust and live with it as best we can! This will be a very busy day for us, with all the doctor appointments and errands to run, but we shall get to as many of our friend's pages as possible! Be well our dear friends, try to stay cool and dry, even though that might be a real challenge, please give our love to all in your sweet home, see ya all tomorrow...

Oh wow, your mom is really busy. Don't worry about blogging to me. I will always vote if I'm home and online. My parronts will be in FL to house hunt in August so, I'll be off the BC. Then when we move in September, not sure what will happen then.
Enjoy your company. Lunch at your house is yummy!
I'm back! We had a greyt time with our company. The weather was greyt! Even had a bonfire with s'mores. My aunt Gail played ball with me and that was a fun time. I also enjoyed some BeeBeeQ chicken, yummy.
Today, mom got her NEW new car and we all love it. Hope everybird had a greyt weekend, I missed all of you. I hear that the weather will be 70 for a few days now.
Have a greyt night.

  Heya, Finney (and Miss Lucy)!
Mom is actually getting to see that this is actually the answer to a prayer last year--she wanted to have a job that would take her to 62, and that is pretty much what happened. And after dealing with so many places that tell her she doesn't have this, or that, or the other thing, she is just tired of it. If they want Superwoman, well, Mom doesn't have the energy to go get all the things that these places want. She has good skills, but if they are not enough for them, well, so be it. She thinks she is supposed to retire early. Luckily, she has enough saved up that she can.

You tell your Mom to drive safe! And that bass and coleslaw sound yummy! Peach pie? I am in!

Wing hugs coming your way!

Kaji

  Hi Finnegan
Sure, we understand! I bet Lucy would love going with you to the shows, she would love the attention.
The birthday party was fun yesterday, and they didn't cook out! It was one of the hottest days so far, so they had ham BBQ in the slow cooker, tiny sandwiches, and lots of cold salads in the air conditioned kitchen. The kids stayed in the pool nearly the whole time mom was there, only coming out to eat.
Mom's nephew gave her some paint samples to look at, and he thought it might be better to wait and paint when the installers are done with the cabinets, in case they scuff the walls putting them in.
Mom fell this morning walking the dogs, and you know what she did? She looked around to see if anyone saw! It was more embarrassing than anything, since she tripped on something on the street. She's a little bruised on the hip, the elbow, and her knee, but she'll live.
Today is going to be another hot one. It's already sunny and gorgeous outside, so mom will be at the pool for awhile. This evening is the Minions movie in 3D! Last night mom was home by 6:30, so we had a good long time with her. Tonight, it might be later, so we may be in lockdown for a longer time today.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of sunshine and love. Hugs, Falco

day 2 without rain. the heat has descended with the humidity. it was 98 at our house today. mom still took us outside. there was a slight breeze which made it a little better.plus we are sitting in the shade on the porch. mom did take Cori over to the lilac bush where she pruned off a few dead branches and then ate them. mom isn't complaining because its still better than all that snow. sadly the neighbor was once again spraying his poison. it seems he does it every weekend now because he doesn't know what to do with his life. luckily the breeze was blowing against him so he must be covered in pesticides now. .

. i don't eat that many veggies so mom bought me alfalfa sprouts hoping i might try that. i do like to play with the fresh alfalfa but mom isn't sure if i eat it or not. i just like to throw it all over the place. the sprouts don't keep that long so mom is going to try and freeze them and just sprinkle a few on my food everyday when she has everything chopped and frozen she then mixes it together and stores it it in large freezer bags in the freezer. it should last about 6 months

love Boo Boo

  Heya, Finney (and Miss Lucy)!
Mom's interviews did not go well. The jobs give one description, and when you get in the interview, they bring up all these skills that are not mentioned in the job description. Mom said she has never felt stupid in an interview, but the ones she had this week...it was very depressing. Mom says that she was told to get a certification that would cost $6K, minus transportation, food and lodging. If it is not the degree, then it is something else. Mom is too old to be stressed like this. She is moving forward with her application for early retirement.

Definitely will let you know if anything else changes. And hope Miss Lucy is okay with having her wings clipped. Maybe if folks are around she can spend some time in her cage until she gets used to not flying. We sure hope she will be okay with all the people around, too. Give her some good wing hugs from me, okay?

Wing hugs coming your way!

Kaji

I am potty trained so sitting on the lampshade I dont leave any present for mom LOL. Know Chi chi wasnt potty trained so mom did lots of cleaning up after her.
Oh it get buy here with thing mom has going on so can relate to the thing your mom has going on too.
Today was very hot and humid. Mom washed clothes and hung some out and they dried really fast too. I got a bath this morning and then we sat outside and I got a sunbath too. This afternoon mom and I went to spend a little time with the scrap booking gals at the church. We just visited with them. I was a bit loud a few times and mom said I had to be quiet in the church LOL. Skin sis and her family are back from vacation and I bet the dog was very happy they are home again. The neighbor stays there while they are gone but a few times mom went over and checked on things because skin sis asked her to. “Feather butt wiggles is just a little way of saying goodbye” Left a vote for you~~ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)
