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 Pook, and Laka, from Jenny & flock
If we did not make it to your page yesterday, we apologize, some personal family business got in the way, and today won't be much better, dad is prepping 4 or 5 more toy boxes to ship from our Sexton Ford Sales Shipping station, and making out the address labels is the one thing dad does not like to do! We will be in the low 90's for the next 5 days, bummer! Have a great Monday start to your new week, we plan to! Please give our love to all in your sweet home, we love you all so much, see ya tomorrow... LIFE IS GOOD

  Hello Pookie~
I hope you are having a great day!! Still rainy and windy up here but the wind is not as bad today! Good thing cause lots of people lost power. There are tons of trees up here and a lot of them came down. Branches too. Mom's store was the only one with power so there were lots of people shopping there yesterday. They told mom that the line for the gas station was out on the street! They were the only ones in the whole town who had working gas pumps!
I'm busy munching on an apple while mom gets my notes done. Mom doesn't have to take anyone anywhere today so we spent the morning playing!
Don't you just hate it when your cage looks perfectly lovely and mom says it's too messy and needs to be cleaned?? I do! I get a lovely pile of wood in the corner and lots of pieces I have managed to throw out the back and she wants to clean it! I tell you the have no appreciation for art!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a hug and lots of prayers too! We think your mom is going to do great!
With love ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Pookie
HAPPY TGIF DAY
vulture populations are plummeting in Africa
Africa's eight vulture species have declined in number by an average of 62 percent during the last 30 years. vultures are one of nature's most important scavengers—a flock can strip a carcass in a matter of minutes.these natural recyclers, which breed slowly and need years to mature, could be extinct in Africa in the next 50 to 100 years.

poisoning from eating pesticide-laced carcasses caused as many as 60 percent of the vulture deaths recorded since the 1970s.When a large predator such as a lion kills livestock, a farmer will sometimes sprinkle poison on the carcass to kill the predator in retaliation, Vultures usually get to the corpse first. They die after eating the pesticide-laced carcasses intended for lions and other predators. Pesticides are poorly regulated in Africa, and sold as "lion killer" . many farmers don't know what the chemicals are really used for.vultures have largely disappeared from commercial farming areas where pesticide are used

Vultures often collide with the wind turbines and are crushed or are electrocuted by power lines

Vultures are also also targets for poachers, who sell their parts to people who use witchcraft. The birds are known for their tremendous eyesight, and many believe their body parts can be used to see into the future.Their brains are ground to snuff by witch doctors who believe the substance has magical powers.

The scavengers also die after feeding on carcasses left behind by poachers. Illegal hunters poison the corpses to throw off law enforcement, which use circling vultures as a beacon for illegal activity.500 dead vultures were found surrounding a pesticide-laden elephant carcass poachers had poisoned leaving the bodies to rot. terrorists groups are profiting the most from poaching affording them lucrative profits to buy guns and bombs

  Hello Pookie~
I hope you had a wonderful day! We are very late getting notes out today. Mom took everyone to work this morning and then went to sleep for a while. We have been doing some chores and still have the kitchen to clean up. The dining room has to be mopped also since Jennifer dropped a coke on the floor!
Stayed cloudy here all day but only a bit of rain. It is suppose to really storm tomorrow. mom is driving Jennifer down to visit her dad. He just got back from Florida so she is going to spend some time with him this weekend.
Dad will be home in the morning for another 34 hour break. He was delivering in Spokane and did some local work for them so he gets to spend the weekend with us.
Mom is working all weekend so they won't be going anywhere.
We sure are saying lots of prayers for your mom. We hope the interview goes great and we hope she gets offered both jobs! Then she can pick what will work out better for her!!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

Thanks, everyone, for helping me make my Bird-of-the-Day Celebration a wonderful day.

Dad, Uncle Geno and I had a fun day full of laughter and feisty fun.
--
Dad n Uncle Geno went to a special showing of Jean-Luc Goddard's "CONTEMPT" from 1963.
Dad enjoyed the visual style, but neither of them liked the film very much.
Guess you can't like 'em all.

  Hi Pookie
Mom and all of us were praying so hard for Momma Ruthie that her first day back to the nasty place would go smoothly for her!We so pray that she will be the one who gets picked for the interview,our prayers will never stop coming for her to get this job.These next couple of weeks are going to be so long just waiting for the results to come through!How exciting for Momma Ruthie to get that call for the secretary interview next week.You can bet that we'll have her in our thoughts and prayers constantly,24/7 for that one!
That is so hard to decide what to do without getting Momma Ruthie into any more trouble with all the questions and the nasty coworkers and bosses.Mom would suggest that she call in or tell them that she needs to take a few hours off or so for a family emergency.Its none of their business to what the emergency is for,if she has sick leave coming to her it might be a good idea to use that.Its so hard to figure out what to do as we don't want to add anymore grief on Momma Ruthie than she already has with these people.But whatever decision she makes should be worth it either way to be able to land the job.Mom will think more on this situation and get back to you.This is something that needs to be planned out carefully so Momma Ruthie won't be on the carpet for taking more time off.
Wishing you an awesome day and I'm sending you all our love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses for my sweet wonderful GCC buffet buddy,Love always Dixie

  Hello Pookie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still very pretty here and only in the 80's. Rain is suppose to come back for the weekend and we sure could use it! We are not use to being so dry for so long. Everything is yellow and I want it to be green again!
We are getting laundry done today. Mom has to work tonight but she'll have Friday night off. She is going to the library later to get me more story books and she will see what movies they have in. Friday movie night is my favorite! Even if the movie isn't good I'll still have popcorn!
Did it stop raining over there? We heard about the sewers and having to close the beach! That's icky!!
We were thinking about your mom yesterday and hoping everything went okay. So sorry she had to go back to the evil place! We sure are praying hard for her to find something new!
Enjoy the day and I hope you get to do lots of fun things!

Happy Wednesday from Buffalo, NY.
We are so happy that it's much cooler and very comfortable here this week.

I'm still having trouble landing due to my recent wing-clip. I fly ok

Yesterday Dad helped Uncle Geno get his dog, Lucy, back to the vet to get her stitches removed.

  Hi Pookie
Michael Vick has just been signed with the steelers football team.

Vick served 21 months in federal prison after he admitted in 2007 that he had operated a dog fighting ring at a farm he owned in Virginia.
Vick admitted in 2007 to keeping dozens of dogs for a dog fighting ring. Federal authorities say many were badly abused and some brutally executed
Federal authorities seized 70 dogs, mostly pit bulls. Many of them showed signs of severe neglect and abuse. Authorities allege he and his friends had brutally executed several other dogs

the disgraced NFL quarterback also neglected his pet birds, allowing one to starve to death and another to go without food and water.
Vick left one exotic bird in its cage to die of starvation and nearly allowed a second to succumb to the same fate. Vick, he had a beautiful pet bird named Junior that he allowed the roam around his mansion.'Mike decided that the home he lived in at the time was too small for someone of his stature purchased a home in the same neighborhood that was more suitable to the growing size of his bank account,'
Weeks later, after he moved into the new house the star football player at his new Atlanta mansion, but Junior the bird was nowhere to be found.
he hadn’t moved everything out of the old house and when he went back over there to check on things, Junior was still there and in his bird cage, dead'
'They had treated Junior like he was just another piece of furniture that they could just set aside and move at a later date.Vick said because he was an Atlanta Falcon player, fans were always trying to give him birds, and so Junior was no big loss.'
a second bird, a Cockatoo called Crystal,was in its cage without food or water at his home. the bird was later adopted even though Vick told her he wanted it back when he got out of prison.

  Hi Pookie
The bee-harming pesticides we've been fighting for years are worse than we imagined. Research suggests that neonicotinoids aren't just decimating bee colonies -- they're hurting birds too. Researchers found that in areas with high concentrations of neonicotinoids, bird populations declined every year. This means our worst fears are coming true -- neonicotinoids may be moving up the food chain and killing our birds and our bees.
For the sake of the birds, the bees, and the whole food chain, we are challenging one of the biggest neonicotinoids producers of them all: Bayer.It's not just the bees anymore. Neonicotinoids are killing our birds too. It's time to get Bayer to stop producing these chemicals.We already knew that bees, insects, and small creatures that consume neonics are facing a decline in population. Bayer's neonicotinoids are even more harmful: Birds that eat food that consumed neonics are dying too. researchers searched extensively for any other outside cause that could account for the declines: urbanization, other environmental factors, land use changes. They couldn't find one. The only plausible explanation? Bee-harming neonicotinoids. Bayer is trying to write off this scientific study. Because for companies like Bayer, profits trump saving our food chain. By speaking up, we're changing the equation for these companies and making sure they protect the bees.Here's the scary part about all this: until more research is done, there's no way to tell how far up the food chain neonics can reach.major American retailers Home Depot and Lowe's have stop selling neonics. Bayer's lawsuit against the EU for banning this chemical is being challanged-- over a million of us have spoken out against the lawsuit. We've made a lot of progress together, but we're far from done.

and Pookie are so egghausted from fighting that really big fish and between the two of them they managed to get him in.Dixie agrees with Pookie that it is the biggest fist yet that they have caught,even much bigger than the last one they caught!And the whole half hour that they were fighting and pulling took all the energy from both boys!This calls for some more of Mama Ruthie's pineapple cake and some guava juice!Dixie tells Pookie!
We are the Elmer Glue Gang and we'll always be there for one another and our families!We are all big birdie strong with our wings wrapped around each other tight for super strong support always and forever!
Mom and all of us here have already been starting special prayers to get Mama Ruthie out of that hell hole she's in now.We all want her outta there so bad and my Mom wants her out more than anything,so bad she can taste it!We will always be there to love you and support you and sweet Mama Ruthie.She doesn't deserve to be treated like that and needs to get into a place where they will love and appreciate her many talents and good workmanship and team play!
My Mom loves the big ole Hawaiian hugs she gets from Mama Ruthie and she sends back a big huge Cape Cod hug from all of us here and we all hold her so tight and squeeze her close so she can feel all our positive energy that we infuse with our hugs!Keep your head high Mama Ruthie,you are very special to us all here!We just know you'll ace this interview!

  Hello Pookie~~
I hope your day is going great! No more red around the sun today. The wind is blowing in from the coast and it cleared the air out! Wish they could figure out a way to help the people on the East side of the state! If they get wind to clear out the air, it's going to fan the fires and make it worse. They are talking about just letting the fires burn out and that could take a few months! They lost 2 fruit processing plants over there and are trying to figure out how to get the apples to market. I suppose it means my apples will cost more but there is no way around that. Maybe they can find some plants in Idaho since it's not very far away from there. Guess all the people at the plants in Eastern Washington won't have jobs now. It's going to take a very long time to rebuild them. This whole situation is just so sad and losing 3 firefighters makes even sadder.
I took 2 showers yesterday and am very fluffy today! Mom is praying the moulting is done! She is starting to get nervous that I will turn into a naked bird!hahahahahaha I don't have a bare spot on me but mom has to worry anyway. She just a mom and that's what they do!!
Is tomorrow the day your mom has to go back?? We have been thinking about her! We don't want her to have to go back!! Keeping our fingers and toes crossed that she can get a position in the other department!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect!

  Hey Pookie and Laka
CHECK OUT MY GALLERY...

Today I'm posting a picture of the war pony I'm putting up for adoption. There's one catch...There is only one war pony left in the castle grounds corral. If you can tell me what AIM stands for and why they were so important to alot of our tribes you can pick up the war pony and bring him home.He is beautiful and strong.And he runs like the wind !!! So get your research on and and the first bird who sends me the correct answer will win.

No luck in house hunting yet.Beach property taxes are really high here. We went to Palos Verdes where my mommy loves to go and that was sky high. If we don't find a house soon we will be looking for a house in the mountains where its cool all year long...

Much love to you

Poor Mama Ruthie getting locked out of her phone like that,how awful not to be able to even call out on it,what a pain that her Verizon phone kept dying and the charge wouldn't keep.What a pain in the tail feathers to have to go down in person to the phone place to get some help.Mom and all of us here will never stop praying for Mama Ruthie to get out of the hell hole and get one of those jobs she is applying for!We need to pray as hard as we can to get her outta there!We gotta get her outta Dodge for sure and I do know what you mean.We sure appreciate all the prayers you send for the flock and family here!They mean so much to all of us here as do you all mean the world to us and always will!We are the Elmer Glue Gang and we'll never be parted or separated!We will be waiting anxiously for you to tell us when the interview is and what time so we can put in a extra special request for more prayers for Mama Ruthie.
As Pookie and Dixie snooze away under the tree they are snoring so loudly that they can't even hear the bells on the fish-kin poles beginning to jingle gently but they're not enough to get them up and pay attention to open their eyes and see what's happening!Pookie has a big smile on his beak,dreaming dreams of the big buffet table,of the wonderful lunch that Mama Ruthie made for them,tasting the incredible pineapple cake,making his tongue roll around in his beak,Dixie rolls over and gets a whiff of something tasty in his nares his talons trying to grab an invisible treat that seems to be hanging just above him in the air.Both Dixie and Pookie can hear some kind of music in their heads and both boys roll this way and that trying to get a hold of that tasty dream they are dreaming of and as they crash into each other by Dixie rolling in from the left and Pookie rolling in from the right,the bells get louder and more demanding and Pookie's eyes suddenly open wide to the water rising in one big surf wave straight at them as they lie in the shade!Dixie!Dixie!Pookie frantically tries nudging his buffet buddy as the high rolling waves come crashing closer and closer to the shore.......
My Mom holds that big Ole Hawaiian hug close to her heart and we hold those big birdie hugs and cool beakie kisses close to our hearts as well!We love you all so very much!
We all send you all our love along with cool birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!My Mom sends your precious Mom the biggest birdie hug ever and squeezes her ever so tight so she can feel the energy of her love go through to her!
Loving you always and forever,my awesome buffet buddy!Love your buffet buddy,Dixie

  Hello Pookie~
I hope you guys are enjoying the day! We had a red ring around the sun this morning. Everyone was talking about it and trying to figure out what caused it when mom reminded them that there are huge fires over the mountain. It was pretty but it is so sad to think about what those people are going through!
Lots of Christmas lights and outdoor Christmas decor showed up last night! Yep! We are all ready for Christmas, right? I am thinking of making my own holiday to celebrate Parrots! I haven't figured out all the details yet but I know I'm going to have lots of food involved with it! I think the parronts should give the parrots presents too!! I'll work it all out!!
Enjoy the day!!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

the flock and his Mom and the whole family are jumping for joy!Mama Ruthie is qualified for the secretary 1 position and she'll be getting a phone call or an email!!!They all do the happy dance and just can't wait to hear when that interview date will be!It just can't be soon enough for them to see Mama Ruthie be rid of the dark hole where she's working now!That is such greyt news!Everyone sends Mama Ruthie the biggest coolest hugs ever and lots of kisses too!We are so proud of you Mama Ruthie,we just knew you could do it and that you will be chosen for this job!Our prayers for Mama Ruthie will never stop coming,Mom will make sure she puts her name back in the special intentions book tonight when she goes to church with another request that she get chosen for this secretary 1 job!Both Mom and Nana hug Mama Ruthie tight and tell her she can soon start smiling again and not have to worry about being kicked around anymore or treated so badly!Mom had only wanted her out of there from the start.That's no place to be ever!
Dixie and Pookie relax munching on those beakwatering crackers and tasty cheese that Mama Ruthie packed in the cooler for them and as Dixie takes a sip from his juice box he tells Pookie that he's so happy to be here again with him fish-kin!He really enjoys their time together doing the one thing that makes them happy!They both keep their eyes on the poles as they dance softly in the water waiting to trap the big one when he comes around for them!Dixie thinks that Pookie had a greyt idea to attach the poles to metal stakes so they wouldn't fall in the water,it makes for a stronger hold for the poles so the big one won't drag their poles away from them when he comes in!Dixie and Pookie close their eyes and lift their faces to the sky and feel the warm sunshine on them and a big smile breaks over their beaks!Yes!Yeeeeesssss!This is the life!
We're all sending you all our love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses for a day filled with sunshine and love from all of us here.We give Mama Ruthie another tight squeeze to feel us surrounding her with love and support holding her close with the biggest Birdie hugs and energy she can ever feel.My Mom loves the big Ole Hawaiian hug from your sweet precious Mom more than you can know!It brings her the sunshine and fills her heart with warmth and love to go on!We love you all so very very much!We all so appreciate the prayers you send our way more than you can know!You are our world and without you in it the world would be a sad and dark place!We love you lots!

  Saturday Flitzer the Birthday Bird
Hello dear friends.
Thank you So Much for all the HatchDay Wishes....it's great to be 7.
It was such a great day that I started doing my 'happy squawk' in the evening and wouldn't stop for a long time. Daddy laughed and laughed.
- - -
Dad gave me a happy day filled with treats and surprises. I even got Lemon Sherbet for a yummy birthday dessert.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Uncle Geno hosted another Marilyn Monroe Move Night on Thursday. They watched:
"The River of No Return" (1954) which was fun.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Dad and Uncle Geno went to the theater to see a German Film called "PHOENIX".
Dad called it his favorite film of the year so far. Sadly some of our friends have fear of subtitles - isn't that silly. Many miss out on such good films this way.

Thanks again for your gifts and wishes. ~Wings Up~

  Hi Pookie
HAPPY TGIF DAY
every spring and early summer we hear birds singing at about 3am. mom never knew why they were singing until she found out they were whip-poor-wills

the Eastern Whip-poor-will is rarely seen due to its excellent camouflage. This member of the nightjar family is named for its haunting, onomatopoeic song, which has inspired folk legends and artists from Robert Frost to Elton John. the nightly chorus of “whips” is heard less and less often each spring as forests are lost to agriculture and development. Since Whip-poor-wills often forage close to roads, they are also vulnerable to collisions with cars. Declines in their prey from pollution and pesticide use have also affected this insect-eating bird.

One New England legend says the Whip-poor-will can sense a person's soul departing, and capture it as it leaves. Native American lore considered the singing of these birds a death omen. The only things whips actually capture are insects. They are consummate aerial foragers, consuming large quantities of beetles, moths, and other insects each night — a process that is aided by a large, wide mouth, or “gape.” Strictly nocturnal, the birds are most active at dawn and dusk and on bright, moonlit nights.

Eastern Whip-poor-wills nest on the ground in a scrape of dead leaves, usually laying two eggs at a time. They sit tight on the nest and will rarely flush unless almost stepped upon.the hatching of Whip-poor-will chicks appears to be closely tied to the lunar cycle: Most hatch a few days before a full moon. This strategy may have evolved to allow the adult birds to forage all night during the full moon, enabling them to catch enough insects to support their chicks.

Eastern Whip-poor-will populations have experienced steep declines, and the species was one of several added to the 2014 State of the Birds Watch List.

  Hello Pookie~
I hope you are having a perfect kind of day! I just finished some apple, cinnamon, pecan oatmeal! I must say I think this is my favorite so far! I like all the oatmeal that mom makes but the pecans were a surprise!
The rain storm we had yesterday did not help with the fire on the other side of the mountain. I guess it made it worse since it caused more wind. I feel so bad for all those people.
Mom went back to work last night and of course there was tons of work waiting for her. There is a back up person but she is in the garden and they don't want her to do anything but the garden. Kind of makes it useless to have a back up if they are not going to be able to do the work! Mom will catch up eventually.
Believe it or not, they already have the Christmas jammies out for the little ones. Mom says the baby that can wear it has not even been born yet! Talk about planning ahead! The Halloween ones are out too and all the Autumn decor. That stuff is nice to look at but I don't think anyone is ready to think about Christmas yet.
How about hanging out at the beach today?? It will keep you from being tempted to bit anyone???
Enjoy the day!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hey Pookie and Laka
Thank you for liking my skin brother Circling Eagles poem...Theres a picture of him in my gallery. The young boy dancing in a powwow.
During this time period he wrote the poem.
Without even thinking of what he would write about. His heart opened up and all his feelings came out...
When the powwows starting turning commercial a lot of our friends from different tribes and reservations from different states slowly went away.
The saddness ripped through everyones hearts and it felt like our hearts where being ripped out of all of us...
Alot of these youngsters grew up together meeting at Powwows and sitting on the bleachers on cold nights sharing blankets and drinking hot chocolate and eating frybread together...

Elders from different tribes would sit together and talk about thier traditions and share coffee and frybread and tell stories.

When everyone got up to dance in the sacred circle there was a presence of love and pride so strong it was overwhelming in a good way.
Now the only real traditional powwows are held on our reservations.
We all miss those days so much.We know it will never be the same.

This weekend I will be in lockdown while my mommy and daddy go house hunting.
I probably won't be back until Monday...

Happy TGIF
Love your King War Chief

Have a great Friday dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your sweet cabin, see ya all tomorrow...

  Hi Pookie
Dixie is so eggcited to be able to go on another fish-kin trip with Pookie as soon as they awaken from their birdie napping!Those are always the best times ever riding in Pookie's big red jeep and going on another adventure with the big fishes! Dixie looks sleepily at the rest of his flock having a greyt time finishing off the buffet and then building a big birdie sand castle by the shore!Dixie and Pookie give off big birdie yawns and plop down on the tree branch enjoying the warm Hawaiian breezes coming through to cool them as they snore away loudly disrupting Chyna and Laka below them.Dixie giggles in his sleep while he hears them talking about getting away from the snoring birdies and finding a quieter place to hang out and enjoy their meal!
Dixie tells Pookie that Momma Ruthie is in their prayers daily including Nana's and the skin sibs for peace of mind and for release of her captivity in that awful place called work.Mom will light a candle in church on Saturday for more prayers and put Momma Ruthie's name in the special intentions book once more for another full week of special request prayers.We love you all so very much and we'll never ever stop having your backs and loving you the way we do!You all mean the world to us and always will!We so appreciate all the prayers you send our way for my flock and family,you don't know how much those prayers mean to us here!My Mom and Nana and skin sibs and the whole flock and family send Momma Ruthie the biggest hug ever and a big cool squeeze so she can feel our arms and wings surrounding her and holding her tightly!That big Ole Hawaiian hug makes my Mom's day more than you can imagine!
Sending you all our love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses and a vote for you too my bestest ever buddy in the whole wide world!Loving you always and forever and ever, my sweet buffet buddy,Love from your buffet buddy,Dixie

  Hello Pookie~
I hope your day is going great! You know biting is not a good thing! Mom always reminds me that I am not suppose to bite the hand that feeds me! Well who else am I going to bite???
I've been out sitting with mom all morning and I'm having a wonderful time. I chewed on her shoelace, preened a bit. Chewed on her jeans, preened a bit. I am in a chewing, preening kind of mood today! This molt I am going through is horrendous! Mom is wondering how wild Amazons fly when they lose 4 tail feathers while molting! I can't fly so how should I know??
My play cage was all nice and clean when I came out this morning. Mom said there were so many fuzzy feathers everywhere that it took forever! When she finally finished up the cage, Merlin went over and threw up right in front of it! Hairballs!! Guess he didn't want to feel left out with all the cleaning going on!
There was suppose to be no rain this week but mom went to the car wash so of course it rained this morning! I just hope it continues on over the mountains and rains over there. There are so many fires there and they could really use some rain!
I hope you have a very fun day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hey Pookie and Laka
Happy Thursday !!!
As I promised I am going to share my big skin brother's Poem...
His name is Circling Eagle Bigfoot from my Grandfathers clan.
The Elk Horn Scraper Clan...This clan in my tribe are heavy duty medicine men and they are also match makers.

Circling Eagle was 8 years old when he wrote this poem. This poem brought him to be SO-Cals Indian student of the year...

This poem is over 20 years old and has won the SO-CAL state finals in the short poems division. It is very heart felt and it is what a young Native American boy can see from behind his eyes. At the time he wrote the poem there was great saddness because of the change in our Traditional Pow Wow circuit because it starting catering to the by standers who made it commercial more than traditional. My family was raised on the PowWow trail and they all saw our traditional ways being put a side.Leaving a mere memory of the good times.Todays Pow wows will never be the same.

Here's the poem
I'm just an Indian boy Written by Circling Eagle Bigfoot

I'm just an Indian Boy
I struggle to stay alive
So my traditional ways can survive

I'm just an Indian boy
I walk the narrow read mans road
I try to stay strong and bold

I'm just an Indian boy
The Elders say I must fight to live another day
That is the only way

I'm just an Indian boy
I hold my head up proud
And walk like Thunder thats loud

I'm just an Indian boy
I must fight for my people and defend
So our traditional ways will not end
I will always defend

I'm just an Indian boy
My eyes are filled with tears
I'm still a young boy with fears

I'm just an Indian boy
Just like the elders say
Sometimes are enemies have to kill us
Because they can't kill our spirit

I'm just an Indian boy
I will fight on for my people forever

By Circling Eagle Bigfoot.

Have an awesome day to all my friends and relations
Love King Chief Warrior
Panther

  Happy Thursday from Flitzer
Hello from Buffalo.
hot muggy days and nights. Last night was 79 - at night - ugh.
~
Today will be torrential rains all day - then it should cool down. Dad says if he needs to build an Ark, at least it will be small - just a Daddy-n-Bird Ark.
= = =
Dad and Uncle Geno went to see the movie "THE GIFT" yesterday. Dad liked it a lot -said it was very creepy and glad it was different than expected. Dad says they went to the movies to get away from the heat and humidity, but happy he enjoyed the film as well.

Have a happy day. ~Wings Up~
