Green-Cheeked Conure

Fresh Papaya, Mango, grapes, Raw Peanuts, pumpkin and papaya chews, and all SUNFLOWER SEEDS!!!! Or sticky rice and whatever mom is eating I want to try too. :)

Nowadays since its cold, i've been hanging out in mom's shirt cause its nice and warm and cozy in there. :) or on top of my tree screeching when I see an intruder like a cat or dog that goes by.

I think i'm a teenager now. I don't like loud noises or stink and strange people and my vet said that I can't have seeds everyday cause its not good for me. :( And when i'm on mom and don't want to come down till i'm ready to go down! :( Cause i'm a spoiled birdy!

she gives me love and lots of fruits and treats and stuff to play with and spoils me rotten :)

I also took a DNA test on Friday to see if i'm a boy birdy or a girl birdy. We'll know in 10 days. :) I think we'll get the results by February 14th, 2010 Valentine's Day.
GUESS WHAT EVERYONE, I'M A BOYEEEE!!!!! MY DNA TEST CAME BACK TODAY FEBRUARY 17, 2010!!! HEHEHEHHEHE :) HAPPY HAPPY, JOY JOY!!!!

Also, my mom reminds me to say my birdy prayers every night before I go to sleep. And it goes something like this: Dear God, I thank you for my mommy and daddy and all of my birdy friends here on the BCC and every where else. Please bless all my birdy friends and especially to those who just came out of surgery and are recooperating. Please bless those young and old birdies who are ill or are not feeling well, as you are the great physician in the sky and can heal all. I pray that you cover all us birdies with your shield of armor to protect us from any disease or illness or harm that may come our way. I thank you from the bottom of my little birdy heart, Amen. :)


I think i'm in puberty my hormonies are running a muck! I don't like daddy when i'm on mommy and I try to bite him and I lunge!! I dunno why? PUBERTY !!!!.

Pook Pook Pookie! Ma! Ma! Ma! What U doing??? Pookie go botcha! What U doing?? Pookpook Pookie Pookie Pookie, where's Daddy? Where did you go?.

  Hi Pookie
last night mom put the flea drops on the cats and it takes a long time for the medicine to dry. since the cats like to roll around and sleep on the bedspread mom took the red bedspread off today to wash it to make sure no medicine was on it. she has another bed spread that is dark blue that she put on the bed. when i saw the blue bed spread i screamed and screamed because i didn't like it at all. mom said i was acting like a big baby about it.

love Cori

  Hi Pookie & Laka
Howdy friends, Mikey D here. Seems we have ourselves a situation goin` on here in the Ghost Town. With Miss Falco taken hostage by Hawk-eye, and Jesse still missin' there didn't look like much more could go wrong. Well, that was until we were set to bust down that General Store door. Jesse clicks to Sundancer, urging her to move even faster as the Ole Town comes into view, " come on girl, we gotta save Falco!" As they round the bend in the trail Jesse glimpses the scene taking place out in the street. Those mangy birds who'd kept him hog-tied at the mine had beaten him here, and were now holding the BC team at gun point. He reins Sundancer in, and leaps to the ground boltin' to the shadows of the empty black-smiths shop. He peers around the corner to get a better view.
"Jesse" a whisper startles Jesse to his feet like lighten' " it's me THE BIRD" the familiar face steps into the light. "I been hiding' out here, tryin' to figure out what to do to save everybirdie."
"I gotta plan. We're gonna make a distraction. There's only two of them, and when they look to see what's happenin' the Team can take them easily." Jesse explains his plan to THE BIRD. They set off to put the idea into action.
"Bird was I a dumb bird!! I scared off all the guards horses then I gave Jesse Sundancer to get to town fast & help save Ms Falco." BB says as she walks down the hot, dusty trail. "Good thing I have my canteen full of water with me. Its going to be a long dusty walk back to town."
Kaji, Lizzie and Gus stand among the Team, when out of the corner of their eye,they see Jesse and THE BIRD on top of a nearby building, "Ugh you gulls are scruffy, icky characters, aren't ya? I guess you can't help being gulls, but couldn't ya be good gulls?" Kaji says loudly. This gives Jesse the opportunity he needs. Suddenly the street is alive with noise as gun powder filled walnut shells explode everywhere. The two villainous scoundrels wipe round to see what was goin' on. That is all it takes for the Team to move in on them.
Pearl leaps onto the wiry small one's back knockin' him to the dirt. Willie and Peppino grab the tall, rangy Gull. The crowd cheers happily as their would-be captors stand pinned in place. " OFF TO JAIL for you" Mikey D says, pointing his six-shooter in their direction. Kiddo and Hulk escort their "friends" to the jail house to deposit them safely into a cell with Black Bart and his other cronies.
Jesse thunders down the back stairs of the hotel building, his gun drawn, as he bolts across the street towards the door to the General Store. Leaping into the air, talons ready he busts through the door sendin' Hawk-eye flyin' across the room, caught unprepared by Jesse's sudden arrival. "FALCO!" he yells as he sees her smiling at him. " You, rag-mop-bird get up, move it!" He points his gun at him. Don't try anything."

  Hi Pookie
There's hardly anything worse than tooth pain! We all hope mom is feeling better and that the infection is gone.
It sure is fun here on the beach, though, so having some extra time is a wonderful idea. We all love the breakfast spread, too! How nice for your mom to make such a good breakfast.
Today is beautiful, sunny but still kind of cool. Mom has 2 public tours at the museum today in Dinosaur hall. She was hoping to get some outdoor work done, but now that she's showered, she will dress for work instead. Later she is going to see Woman in Gold, the movie with Helen Mirren. It hasn't had great reviews, but she likes the cast.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of love and scritches. Hugs, Falco

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

I wake up to discover that Dad bought the wrong bird pellets. All my life I have eaten Roudybush "Minis" ...these fresh pellets are Roudybush "Small". They're huge.

Haven't decided yet weather to turn my beak up at these huge ugly things. Dad is not near any place that carries my pellets so he is going to have to journey for them or order them -so it may be a few days until I get the right ones.
Silly human.

  Hi Pookie and Laka
The breakfast smells heavenly and tastes even better! Sure hope your moms tooth problem gets ok. Mom just got prepped for another crown yesterday so sure no fun either.
Today was another too cold day out for me to go out for a sunbath so I helped mom in the house today. We cleaned out the cupboard under the sink. I sat on the chair and watched but didn’t see anything at all interesting under there. Mom has some tomatoes on the kitchen sink window sill and every once in a while I fly over and take a bite of the one. Yet mom puts any my bean/rice meal I wont eat it. “If there ever comes a time when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.” V4U. Hugs~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Heya, Pookie!
Kaji wakes up to the smell of wonderful things. Bacon? Is that bacon?

He opens his tent flap and gives a big wing stretch.

Chyna is already up and eating.

Wow, he says, grabbing some bacon and cramming it in his beak, you are up already, Miss Chyna?

Heya, Pookie! Dixie! Good morning!

Kaji settles down next to his buddies and happily munches his bacon.

Wing hugs!

Dixie,Kallie,Peepers and Candida and Celine all inhale as they sleep in the early morning hours and their nares are filling up with the enticing aroma of blueberry pancakes,bacon and eggs!As they slowly awake with the delicious smells assaulting their nares they slowly open their eyes and roll over and see in the distance the large buffet table that holds every imaginable food that they love!They jump up and race to the table and each grab a plate and they load their plates with lots of blueberry pancakes,pineapple,apple and guava and orange too!There is just so many things to choose from.Their beaks are just watering madly as they can smell and see the food laid out before them.As Dixie is piling food on his plate,he starts eating whatever he puts down before he grabs another thing to put on his plate,he looks behind him and watches Kallie doing the same thing!They are so enjoying their time on the beach and they are so happy to be staying longer also!
Poor Momma Ruthie having to have a tooth pulled!She must've been in so much pain to have the novocaine wear off and to have been shot twice before it worked that's just painful!Please tell Momma Ruthie that she is in our thoughts and prayers that her boo boo is feeling better,that must be so horrible to taste the medicine in everything she eats and drinks.YUCK!Please let us know how she's doing as we all worry about her here,Mom has been putting her name in the special intentions book at church every week.Please give her a big birdie hug from Mom and we all send her warm wing hugs! We just hate to see her in such pain!

  Hi Pookie & Laka
Mikey D here, sorry I'm rather in a hurry. We're closin' in on the bird-napper who has taken Miss Falco. Havin' scanned the Ghost town building by buildin' we knew where our friend was being held. Standing together in the middle of the empty, dirt street we glimpsed a ratty hat peerin' out the window of the General Store. The 'tiel frothers, Pearl and Silver are worried about Falco. However, they know how feisty, clever and brave she is even if faced with a hawk-foe." He's the one that better be careful and not underestimate Falco just 'cause she's a hen!" they exclaim angrily.
"We need a plan, we're gonna bust in and save our friend." Mikey D says a frown on his brow.
"I Guess I showed you what for!" Falco grins and awaits her rescue. She knows her friends will be there soon to free her. The look on Hawk-eye's face tells her that he also knows they're comin' for him. He begins to pace nervously, making sure he stays well away from Falco. He won't that happen again.
Kiddo looks across the street at the store, and says "Falco is not a birdy to submit peacefully, and by the time we catch up with them I am thinkin' she will have that nasty ol' hawk tied up in knots!" This causes an loud laughter to erupt from the team as they study the situation.
Jesse smiles as he sees BB slip into the entrance of the mine. She crouches low and makes her way in the shadows to where Jesse is sittin' tied up like a Christmas gift. Pulling her knife, she quickly cuts the rope and the pair make their way out the door of the mine, and wind their way up the hillside to the boulder.
"My horse is tied yonder," BB points in the direction, " you go, I wanta wait here for our friends to return. They've bird-napped Miss Falco!"
Jesse's eyes become pinned with anger. He doesn't waste a moment to say good-bye, as he bolts towards the horse. "I must save Falco!"
Riding like the wind, Jesse urges Sundancer into a fast gallop towards the ghost Town. His mind is filled with thoughts of saving Falco from the clutches of that dirty, rotten Black Bart and his gang of misfits. Someone was gonna pay for this.
Mikey D and Sky take a dozen friends as they begin to move to burst in the front door, others go to take the back door. Inches from the door they freeze. The sound of gun fire ricochets through the town. "'DON"T YA MOVE A WING MUSCLE PARTNERS!" the growling voice of the tall gangly Gull stops everybirdie cold. " Now move away from that ther' door pronto"
"We got 'um boss, we got good" the wiry small bird says, clapping his wings happily in excitement.
Falco hears the commotion outside the door, and grins, "told ya they were goin' for me!"
"Hush now" Hawk-eye says, wavin' his wing in her direction as he presses his ear to the wall to hear better.

  Heya, Pookie!
Tell your Mom to be careful with that craigslist. We have had a couple folks end up dead here when they used it to check out a car they saw advertised. Very scary. So jobs might not be the best on there. Be very careful, Mom says. And having some longevity at the job is hard to let go.

Mom has not heard back from her interview on Wed. And they posted the job on Monday on a couple sites. Mom doesn't have good feelings about it, and it is okay.

So....where is that pineapple cake? I sure could use some right about now!

  Hi Pookie & Laka
HOWDY BC partners, Mikey D here as we ponder just how we're gonna save both Miss Falco and Jesse from the talons of some nasty outlaw member of Black Bart's gang. As we spread out to search every nook and cranny of this Old Ghost Town, Miss Falco is busy dealin' a nasty blow to her bird-napper.
"Oh, I am so angry about my friend Falco being birdnapped by that nasty ol' hawk. I can't wait to get my six-shooter pointed in his direction. We'll show him we don't take kindly to our friends being bushwhacked!" Kiddo shouts as he shoulders open the door to the blacksmith's shop beside the Livery stable. He and Angel-tiel bolt inside, guns at the ready. A group of birdies follow them inside as they check every inch of the ole' buildin' " nuthin' here, let's keep goin'"
Jesse can hear his bird-napper outside as they talk softly about what was takin' place back in town. He hears Falco's name mentioned and his anger grows. He tries to call out, but the cloth tied around his beak prevents him making a sound. He sits thinking for a moment then worried for Falco,
"I MUST get free and save Falco. That nasty, foul-smellin' Hawk's gonna find out who I am" with that Jesse begins to swarm and wiggle, working to loosen his bindings. He pulls and tugs and finally feels the ropes begin to give a little slack.
" Did that hurt?" Falco asks coyly, trying hard to find a grin, " a little ol' girl couldn't hurt someone as strong as you?" she giggles out loud, then seeing Hawk-eyes look, she stops with difficulty .
"You just be settin' there and behavin' Black Bart will be along right shortly to deal with ya and your band of goodie-two-shoes"
BB sneaks out the back door of the jail to do some lookin' around for Jesse on her own. "Maybe he is not even being held in this ghost town any more! There is a old mine shaft in the hills close by" so BB mounts Sundancer & heads out to do more scouting. Riding north, she works her way up towards the mine from the back end. Tying Sundancer to a bush she grabs her riffle from the scabbard and checks her six-shooter, then carefully makes her way to a large boulder just above the mine's entrance. There, she hankers down to listen carefully as she watches two of Black Bart's gang pacin' nervously back 'n' forth.
"We better leave Jesse here and go see to gettin' Bart outta jail." a small, wiry bird tells his partner, a gangly sea gull in ragged clothes. She sees his dirty hat nod, then both head towards the north east where their horses had been hitched. BB grins, "the horses are long gone towards the south west.' She chuckles softly to herself as she inches closer to the mine's entrance.
"If I were you I'd be lettin' me go mighty fast, my friends are headin' this way right now and it ain't gonna go well for you!" Falco tells her bird-napper. He peers out the dusty window, what he sees makes him cringe.

  Aloha, Pookie and Laka!
Great time there at the fire! Always good on the trail!!

Ah, you do the same thing I do--have been having a great time diving into Mom's shirt, and then scootch myself up on her chest and look out. Mom says I am enjoying the time with her now that she is looking for work again. Yup, the contract was ended, and Mom has to find a job. She is about a month away from 62, so she could go on early retirement. She will look for a job and see what happens. If she doesn't find one, she would qualify for Obamacare, she thinks. At least she is not working when the weather gets nicer, instead of in winter. So she is doing stuff that she needs to do (clean) and get rid of more stuff that she want's to get rid of.

How is your Mom doing with her job search? Hope you are all doing good, and send our good thoughts and prayers and wing hugs and beaky kisses your way!

  Hi Pookie and Laka
Mom has a projection clock in the bedroom that shows the time and temperature on the ceiling. Now mom watches that thing a lot during the night and the temperature just has lines there the last two nights. Today she was on a mission to fix it. She changed the batteries in the clock though it is electric guess it still needs them too and changed the batteries in the transmitter outside. After putting the 5 new batteries in it still wasn’t working right so dad messed with it a bit and said he had it fixed. Well the time is wrong and now the alarm keeps going off this evening but I think mom got that fixed. Dad says maybe the time will change on its own after a few days so we shall see if that happens or not LOL. “If there ever comes a time when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart.

  Hi Pookie
That was just about the best fireworks display ever, and it definitely was the perfect ending to a terrific day!

No sunbath today for the simple reason that there is no sun to speak of. Now if it was warm enough, Mom would get me out there anyway since we all know the UV comes thru the clouds. However it is just a couple degrees too cool for Mom to feel good about taking me outside. I have her all day though, so I don't care.

We had another serving of leftover gumbo and fresh spinach for lunch. Mom was amazed when once again I ate a tiny piece of spinach. I am just patronizing her, of course, but it did result in lots of skritches and kisses so I guess it was worth it. And I ate a bit of everything in the gumbo, not just the rice...with the exception of that nasty okra, of course.

Today is the last day for entries in the Derby Hat Contest, and tomorrow voting begins. May I suggest that you all go over to the Milonga page and check out the 27 (so far) entries and don't forget there is a second page to the gallery. That way you can admire the many imaginative and attractive pics you will be voting for tomorrow. That will be one vote per flock for a gent and one for a lady (Piddy and Paddy are in the lady's division), and you will want to come back and vote again every single day thru May 7th.

  Hi Pookie & Laka
Howdy partners, no time to be talkin' not with Black Bart heading with his gang to the ole' jail. Pearl and Silver smile " What a greyt feeling to be taking Black Bart and his cronies to lockdown (where they deserve to be) but we cowbirdies still don't have Jesse back." BB is riding out of the mountains towards the ghost town when she sees Falco being jerked into the general store. by a scruffy-lookin' Hawk. She slaps Sundancer on the shoulder and encourage her into a gallop as she winds her way towards the Ghost Town. "What foul deeds are going on now" she thinks. BB rides around town to scout things out & sees a strange horse out back of the general store. On the other side of town BB sees Boss D & the wagon crews putten Black Bart's gang in the jail house. BB enters the jails back door and tells every birdie what see saw at the general store. "It seems we have 2 birds being held hostage now"
Everybirdie turns around alarmed at the sudden sound of BB's voice. The news that Miss Falco has been bird-napped shocks everybird silent. "Oh no, not Falco! We have to rescue her from that awful hawk. I don't like hawks at all, ' Kiddo exclaims
Mikey D looks from Kiddo to Sky, then to the others searching for an answer. " We must move fast. Jesse and Falco are somewhere in town. "BART!," he growls angrily, " where ya got Jesse stashed? and NO! funny talk or you and your cronies are gotten be sorry!"
Black Bart begins to laugh, " now ain't ya all in a real bind? If' 'n ya don't set us free, you ain't findin' either Jesse or this Miss Falco either!" his eerie laughter echos in the old jail house.
"We have your gang hog-tied outside in the wagons. You make us a trade, we'll let ya have your lice-bitten hooligans back!" Sky says, an anger fillin' his eyes like a wildfire. Cappy marches Bart and his hooligans into the jail cell and locks them up, sittin' down to keep watch so there is NO jail breaks! " Ya' ll set outta here to search, find Jesse and Falco. I'll make sure our guests are all comfy-cozy."
The team bolts from the jail, spreadin' out to search for their friends, now held captive. Raffikki turns to Cookie and Pookie, " I bet Falco can hold her own!" they laugh a small worried laugh, then fly down the street to search in the livery stable.
Falco sits quietly, eying her captor. " Ya know they're gonna find me, and you'll end up gettin' your tail-feathers trimmed?" she grins straighten up under his angry glare.
" Now, no sassin' from ya missie" he yells walkin' over to within inches of her beak.
"Bad move buster" she yells, as she stomps down on his toes with her cow-girl boots, bitin' him on the wing at the same time.
"OWWWW" Hawk-eye screams, hoppin' on one foot, holdin' his wing with the other."Now, you're gonna get it, no more carryin' on!"

  Hi Pookie
HAPPY EARTHDAY
yesterday we had a phenomena occur where we live called grauple which are small pellets of ice created when supercool water droplets coat a snowflake which are cloudy or white in color and plop when they hit the ground. this usually occurs once or twice a year usually in the spring but it can occur in the fall. today it was more sleet since it was clear ice balls falling that bounced around when they hit the ground. this has now turned into a cold rain at 43 degrees

Make It Green
Lives are crying because it's not clean,
Earth is dying because it's not green...
Earth is our dear Mother, don't pollute it,
She gives us food and shelter, just salute it...
With Global Warming, it's in danger,
Let's save it by becoming a strong ranger...
With dying trees and animals, it's in sorrow,
Make green today and green tomorrow...
With melting snow, one day it will sink,
How can we save it, just think...
Trees are precious, preserve them,
Water is a treasure, reserve it...
Grow more trees, make Mother Earth green,
Reduce pollution and make her a Queen…


love Cori

  Hi Pookie & Laka
Hello everybirdie, Mikey D , driving like the wind towards that ole' Ghost Town and a confrontation with Black Bart the notorious robbing, murderin', cantankerous villain of the Old West. With his gang members stowed away in our wagon beds, we drive into the deserted town ready to come beak to beak with our cunning enemy.
Pearl & Silver are wondering eggactly how the tunnel birds are gonna get outta their predicament when they see Cappy wink. Looking around for some way to get out of the predicament they found themselves, the Tunnel Birds realize their time might be up, when Cappy, their leader comes up with a thought to save them all and capture Black Bart. "Well has Black Bart ever encountered a mad Cockatoo Scream?" Cappy thinks and then lets out the loudest highest pitch scream he can manage. He rushes Black Bart with Drawing Blood on his mind. Everybirdy around that Cockatoo screaming drops everything to cover their ears and wince in pain, giving the Tunnel Birds time to react as they were all wearing earplugs.
The Tunnel Birds rush Bart and his birds, grabbing their dropped firearms. Cappy glares at Black Bart, his gun pointed at the leader of the robbin' gangsters." Move i, there's an old cell over in the Sheriff's Office that has your name on it. You can stay there until Mikey D and the others decide what to do with you." Cappy points to the door with his gun barrel. Bart turns signaling his birds to follow him to the jail house. Moving as one for the door, Falco stands aside to let the group pass, then joining the others she follows along towards the jailhouse.
No one has seen Jesse yet, but once Bart and his gang were under lock they'd search for him and set him free. Falco stops as she sees Mikey D and the wagons rushing along the dusty, bumpy road, then out of no where a wing covers her eyes and beak, stopping her from screaming for help. The dark shadow drags her into the old General Store before letting her go. With gun pointing towards her, she turns to see her captor. A scruffy Hawk squints beady blacken eyes at her. His torn jacket covering dusty clothes, and the smell of him makes Falco's nose sting.
"WELL now Missie, whata we here?" the birdknapper says, " bet Mikey D and the others gonna give us what we want to save ya!"
Falco glares angrily, and straightens her clothes out, " How dare you grab me, you rotten dirt-bag"
"Now, now that ain't no way to be behavin' missie" the birdnapper taunts. " you just set right yonder, and keep quiet like, hear me?"
Mikey D pulls to a stop at the saloon, as the others stop and rush for the doors of the stores and hotel to search for hide-a ways. No one realized with all the action that Falco was missing.
"Where's Jesse?"

  Hi Pookie
Thanks, mom is fine today. It came and went quickly, whatever it was.
Happy Earth Day, do something nice for your mother (earth) today.
Mom had a tour with second graders today. As you might know, that's one of her least favorite ages, but this group was fantastic! They knew a little already and were eager to learn all they could about dinosaurs. Mom tells all her groups about some characteristics at the beginning of the tour, then as the tour goes on, she asks questions in front of certain dinos. Examples are big body, little head = herbivore, or teeth can regrow. This group nailed all of them! That's unusual for kids that young. Anyway mom had fun and at the end, one of the teachers told her that she's the best docent they ever had. This teacher has been doing this tour for several years now, so she really liked what she heard today.
Tomorrow is another tour day, so we'll be later getting online again. It was raining cats and dogs this morning. At least that's what mom said, but all I saw were raindrops. Polly didn't want to walk, and Daisy didn't want to stay out long, so maybe they will get a good walk later today. I hope you are having a good spring day, it feels like fall here, with temps in the mid 40s. Get lots of cuddles and scritches while you can! Hugs, Falco

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

  Flitzer - Daddy has a bad start for his day
Locked Out!

Due to poor policy regarding keys [they never give keys to ANY of their staff] , nobody could enter the gym today.
This used to happen a lot - and we have begged Management to give a key to the Trustworthy morning staff. They refuse to do so.
Sadly, Dad has a very busy day with no opportunity to return later today.
---
I think I will fly around and have Dad chase me to give him his needed exercise.

  Hi Pookie
Sunday we lost power because a transformer blew outside. it sounded like a bomb going off. by the time the power came back on it was way too late to blog. then last night couldn't blog on bird channel because we couldn't log on. we could read all the blogs but that was all. by the time that was corrected, once again it was too late for any blogging.

not much going on. mom had to pick up my bird food at the vet and asked how much it would cost to trim my lower beak which is getting way too long and i won't cooperate and let mom dremmel it. they said $115. mom thinks thats a little steep. do you?

  Hi Pookie & Laka
Howdy friends, Mikey d here, at Widow's Creek. It seems we've found us a peck of troubles with Black Bart and his gang of hooligans. All the cowbirds are on claw-tips waiting for the signal. When it happens they are all poised for action. Kiddo's fierceness and bravery gives them all a needed boost of courage as Badact ducks a bullet inches above his head. It was all the incentive the BC team needed, as they draw down on Black Bart's gang right there in the openin' at Widow's Creek.
With the echoing boom of Sky's double barrel shot gun, all chaos breaks loss under the saloon in that ole' Ghost Town. Cappy signals his Tunnel Birds who grab the remaining floor boards in their beaks and talons and with one mighty pull splinter them into kindling. Cookie, thinkin' like Kiddo
quotes a Dirty Harry line; " OK punk,Go ahead-Make my day!" The birds bust through the opening guns on the ready to come beak to beak with Black Bart himself, and a group of his dirty-birdie bandits.
"FREEZE!" Cappy yells as he points his gun at Bart, the others cover the remaining gang-members.
At Widow's Creek things are pretty busy. The bullets begin to fly from all directions as good birds, and gang-birds dive for cover. "The action is heatin' up!!!!!" BB is sitten tall on Sundancer's back over seein' the action at Widows Creek & the ghost town saloon. She is ready to ride to either spot to cover there if need be."This is better then cable TV." she yells as the action continues. Sky stands up and takes a fast shot at Badact and two of his cronies.
"Drop 'em, and wings up, or next shot won't miss," Sky fires so close it ruffles Badacts feathers.
"Ok, Ok, enough, it ain't worth it if Black Bart is gonna rob us of our share boyz" Badact drops his gun and throws his wings over his head.
Polly runs in and grabs his gun, as SweetPepper scoops up the other two guns from his friends standin' wings above their ratty heads. Kiddo takes careful aim at one of the other robbers, nicking his wing feathers, makin' him drop his weapon as he grabs his sore wing and begins to hoot and holler jumpin around like a rabbit. The other villains yell out " HOLD YA FIRE!" they come out from hiding places, wings up.
Mikey D calls out to his friends," grab some rope, lets tie these varmints up, we're headin' to town to make a delivery to Bart! " The team quickly secure the ropes and have the bandits hog-tied and loaded on the wagon beds, under the watchful eye of the gun-birds. They move to their teams like lightening and at a fast trot make dust as they move to the aid of their friends in the Ghost Town. BB clicks to Sundancer and moves off at a gallop, making a direct run for the action in town.
The Tunnel Birds have gotten themselves into a fix. They'd forgotten about the back door to the saloon. As they burst in and thought they had Bart covered they too were under cover; the cover of six gun barrels. " I think we got us a BIG PROBLEM!" Pearl whispers to Cappy.
see ya tomorrow,

  Hi Pookie
Wow, a ribbon and a buffet! Thanks to you and mom for all the fun for the past few days! WE all had fun, and I think all the sandcastles were quite lovely, too.
Thanks for your help with the dragon sandcastle.
Mom has been a bit dizzy and nauseous since last night, so when she left the center today she went to the store and got some ginger ale to help her settle the stomach. Hope that takes care of the dizziness too. Of course, she also bought a new cucumber, pepper, yam, and berries for us while she was there.
When she got to the center today she found out she was doing (what else?) the RVS room. But when Bree saw her, she suggested that mom just sit in there and feed bats. Mom fed all 7 of them and cleaned their cages, but it took over 2 hours. While she was working, one of the staff came in and told her not to clean the big cages, just to finish the bats and leave. Mom was happy to oblige. She thought she'd get some yard things done today, but it was raining when she left the supermarket, so yard work is probably out of the question.
I hope you are having a beautiful spring day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Pookie & Laka
SHHHHHHHH!, Mikey D here at Widow's Creek. The place looks abandoned, not a bird in sight. Suddenly, outta the brush Black Bart's mite-infected side-kicks appear, guns poised at the ready. Mikey D takes a deep breath, and steps down from the lazy-board, and nods to the other drivers to follow suit. Cautiously, every nerve on the ready, the BC team moves to join the trail Boss.
"Far enough, now back off from them there wagons" a surly lookin' Raven orders, his six-shooter aimed at Mikey D. " fella's you take a gander and make sure them wagons have the treasure Bart wants."
Cappy and the tunnel birds have broken through the dirt and have slowly pried on the saloon floor until the boards are loose. Cappy is on high alert waiting for the signal. The tunnel birds are all ready to make their move and just wait in silence until Cappy hears the signal to burst through the floor and save Jesse.
"Wow, we tunnel birds did quick work." Pearl whispers to Silver waiting in the darkness," All the cowbirdies are eggcited and scared but more than prepared to do their assigned duties to carry out the rescue of Jesse as soon as the Trail Boss gives the order. They listen for the sound of Sky's double-barrel shot gun. Cookie shakes dust and dirt from his feathers after digging and stands waiting in silence. Dixie and Kallie along with Peepers and Celine all worked hard to move that dirt out from the tunnel they were building to connect to the saloon.They can't wait to save Jesse from Black Bart's clutches.
Mikey D, looks at the gang of thieves, then at the wagons. " Ok, you got everything ya wanted, now let my friends walk outta here peaceful-like"
"NO, Bart ordered us to take ya all hostage and bring you all back to town. You, come with me" he points at Pookie, one of the drivers, we're gonna go check out the loot. If there's any funny-business he's gonna get it. Hear me?" he growls angrily. Mikey D shakes his head, and waits not sayin' a word. He over-hears one of the bandits call the surly Raven, "Badact".
"WAIT! Badact ya sure you really wanta hand over all this treasure to Black Bart? You all kno' he ain't gonna share it with ya!" this gets the bandit-birds grumblin' among themselves. The plan is working. If they can convince these scoundrels that Black Bart is goin' to take everything they just might get them to turn against their leader.
Badact grabs Pookie by the shirt-collar and marches him to the sixth wagon, stoppin' to think for a moment, he then reaches his wing out to pull open the back of the canopy. He stops dead in his tracks as Kiddo jumps up, his gun leveled at Badact's head. The action gives everyone of the BC team time to dive for cover. Kiddo shoots over Badacts head, startling him, " feelin' lucky?" Kiddo yells angrily. Sky jumps out of his wagon bed, shooting his gun into the air, the double barrel echoing clear to the Ghost Town, signaling the Tunnel Birds into action. All chaos breaks loss

We had a gorgeos Sunday. Dad invited his friend Geno to lunch and we shared lemon cookies.
I don't normally like people other than Dad, but Geno is really great. He's my new buddy.
--
Later Geno and Dad went to see "THE SOUND OF MUSIC" at the Theater. Sadly the place is not 'bird-safe' so I had to stay home. I do love when we see "The Sound of Music" at home, so I can sing along.

Despite time at the movies, we did enjoy the sunshine and the beautiful day.

is so surprised that he and Sugar's sand castle has won second place!He observes the blue ribbon on a stick that is in their castle!Both he and Sugar agree that it must've been the moat that won them the prize!
Let's go and eat!Pookie passes out the plates to every birdie and tells them to chow down,you all deserve it for the hard work you put in!
Momma Ruthie smiles and takes pictures of all the sand castle builders and their Masterpieces before the tide has a chance to wash them all away and they become just a memory only!
Everyone will now have a copy of the picture and she'll frame it for them and give it to them later.
Everyone right now will have a good time,enjoying this wonderful buffet that Momma Ruthie worked so hard on for them! You are all winners!
Peepers and Sugar just can't wait to go to the Bon Fire tonight and they both run to get their sunscreen to enjoy the nice hot day!Sugar and Peepers can't be more thrilled with their sand castle creation!
Peepers steps happily on Pookie's vote button!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Loving you always and forever,Love Peepers
