How my tiel and I got together was just a miracle. I had lost my first tiel in 98 and was hoping one would drop on my doorstep and in 2002 we were supposed to babysit him for his previous mommy and she passed away and her friend asked if we would keep him for our own. I was so happy! cause I needed a tiel to fill the hole my first tiel left. Of course my peach fronted conure arrived the day after he died but it was only a tiel that could fill up that hole. I love my conure because she makes me laugh and keeps me happy. I was even happier when Peepers came to fill that void, the void needed by another tiel. I became the owner when my mom asked me if I wanted to keep him and I was like heck ya, I love this tiel so much! I heard his previous mommy wanted to make sure he was in a loving home before she died and he sure is!.

Cinnamon Mutation Cockatiel

nutraberries,pa- sta,animal crackers,apple peels,

i like to hang out on the playpen with my 4 conure brothers/sister- s and my pesky lutino brother and on my mommys shoulder.

I dont like showers but mommy makes me go with her but hey at least im a clean boy!, when my brother Mario steals MY perch(Lutino Cockatiel),when i gotta be stuck in the cage when mommy goes to work cuz i like to hop onto the floor because she doesnt want me getting hurt,

I love my mommy cuz she takes real good care of me and gives me lots of loves, she says im a special boy cuz i eat with my foot like a parrot she takes me on car rides, walks on my neat neon yellow harness and leash which i hate but wearing that leash means going out so i gotta be a good boy for mommy and wear it,she likes to snuggle with me and i with her. for my birthday she makes me a special birdie cake topped with seeds cuz i only get pellets for my meals cuz she thinks pellets are alot more healthier for me than seeds and they taste good too! the fruity ones are my fave! im just soo happy she adopted me cuz im happy that i found her and made her soo happy again! me being left at her house was a miracle to her and to me too cuz i have 5 brothers/sister- s for company when mommy goes to work.

i like to eat with my foot like a parrot mommy thinks its soo COOL when i do that,I like to hold my foot up when i sing and she thinks thats soo CUTE!, mommy taught me to play dead, i just lay on my back in the palm of her hand real still she thinks thats soo Cute as well and hopping on the floor and going for a run catch me if u can cuz my little pink tiel legs can move!.

  Hi, Peepers, Hi Mario
We are so thankful that Kacey and SweetPepper are able to give us nightly updates on Nana. It is wonderful that the PT is going well but continues to be distressing to hear about the awful food. Can't recover as well if unable to keep strength up if food isn't fresh. Our wings continue to be crossed for her.

Just read the newest update from Kacey about Nana. We are dismayed to hear that she has developed pneumonia. Good it was caught early to get the correct meds but not having good food isn't gonna help the healing process. Hopefully your mom will be able to bring some decent food as having spoiled milk and old fruit isn't appetizing and no point in eating as could cause more trouble.

We are keeping our wings crossed for quick healing so Nana can be discharged and return home to her birds.

Just saw the update from Kacey about Nana being moved to the rehab place. Too bad it is the one farther away from your flock but good that skinbro is able to drive your mom there. We know she is stressed enough without having to worry about driving in the iffy roads. Hopefully she is getting some rest and eating too. We continue to keep our wings crossed for quick healing.

Kacey posted an update on the Calendar page about how Nana is doing. We thank her for that and are so glad to hear that Nana is alert and starting on the PT and walking a bit. Gotta keep moving and will heal so much faster. We continue to have our wings crossed for her.

Didn't get much rain yesterday. Can't even call what we got rain since it didn't get the gutters or the drain running. Just hope the mountains got some snow.

  Hi Peepers
Mom had a class this morning on handling raptors for medical reasons. She knew most of the stuff already, but they have discontinued grabbing one leg in each hand to move a large bird, as it's dangerous for the bird, who could easily break a bone. Instead, they were taught some upright restraint techniques. Mom thinks they will be better for the birds. When there wasn't a large staff there, mom used to help with some of the medical procedures, but now that they have 4 full time and one part time staff, she thinks those days are gone.
While they were in the middle of class the gas guys came because of the call Jill had placed earlier. People have been smelling gas around the front of the clinic for a couple of days, so they were asked to come check it out. Apparently, due to the age of the pipes and building, there is a huge leak somewhere underground between the building and the road below! It means major repairs, no hot water, no heat, etc. for the next few weeks, until the repairs are done. It's going to be pretty uncomfortable up there. Mom hopes it's an electric dryer that they've been using. If it's a gas dryer, that adds another layer to the problem, because of the large amount of laundry to do every day.
Seems like it's always something. The good news is that it's supposed to be in the 40s by mid week, instead of the extremely low temps we've been having.
I hope you are having a great day, staying warm, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers, Hi, Mario
Sounds like Nana has been affected by the anesthesia. Think it takes awhile to leave the system. Mom always thinks that with smaller people harder for them to fully recover. Hopefully more sleep will help and getting some nutrition will get the old Nana back. Hopefully your mom will be able to get more sleep herself to better deal with the days to come.

We are waiting for some rain today. Haven't heard any yet and don't eggspect much for our area. Just hope the mountains get some snow since much of our water comes from there when it melts.

Glad you got some sun there despite the continued cold. At least you aren't in the single digits or lower so must be a tad easier when going out to the hospital.

  Hi Peepers
We all know dad understands about his meals. With Nana in the hospital, there's a good reason.
We were surprised to see Divo as Angel of the Day today. Thanks for remembering him.
Mom was at the center this morning as usual, and had the RVS room to clean. There was only one groundhog in there today, as well as that mean raccoon, and 5 bats. The good news about the bats is they are all in one terrarium. That's also the bad news! It's hard to keep track of who's been fed, and the white out was nowhere to be found. They all ate, mom thinks. They are so cute when they drink, too. Mom gives them water in a 1cc oral syringe, and their little tongues just lap it up from the tip of the syringe.
After the center she went to the supermarket to get us fresh veggies and to get herself some juice. Tomorrow she has raptor class at the center, it will be on medical handling for raptors, we think. They might redo the mammal handling class, which is great, since mom missed it. She also told them already that she would miss next week's raptor class because that's the day she helps out at Biscuits Bingo. Hopefully they will do something to make sure mom qualifies for raptor handling, since she's been doing it for 13 years.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of warm cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

Hopefully she'll be able to eat soon and get her strength up knowing that skinbro will ensure her fids are taken care of.

Operations never tend to start on time and often take longer than they say. At least the family was together to wait and now everyone can get a bit of rest for the days ahead. We'll keep our wings crossed that everything goes smoothly.

The 'tiel frothers grab guitars and wanna play a song. It is called 'True Heart' by the Oak Ridge Boys.

Some people spend night and day
Making money they can hide away
They never know what they're working for
All they think about is making more

And every time the world spins round
There's a few more hearts that can't be found
'Cause they never had nothing to hold on to
The way that I'm holding you

All I ever need is your true heart
Next to me when it's cold and dark
All I need to keep from falling apart
Is the beat of your true heart

Some people spend day and night
Trying to love everybody in sight
They never know what love is for
All they think about is keeping the score

And every time the world spins round
There's a few more hearts that can't be found
'Cause they never had nothing to hold on to
The way that I'm holding you

All I ever need is your true heart
Next to me when it's cold and dark
All I need to keep from falling apart
Is the beat of your true heart
Your true heart

No, they never had nothing to hold on to
The way that I'm holding you

(Repeat Chorus)

Last night, pops took Mom to 5 Guys burgers and fries, for a quick dinner. they were just pulling in the driveway at home, and heard all kinds of fireworks going off. Pops wanted to know what idiot was doing that at this time of year. Well, he turned on the 10 o'clock news and the lead story, was there was a police involved shooting just minutes after they left. That place is just 1/2 mile from the house. If they would have been there another few minutes they would have been in the middle of it. R T

We think you deserve every happiness with your new honey. She is quite the looker too!
Wow, it must have been quite a storm for dad to be called in early like that.
We know that Cy is in a better place, and can now see with both eyes and doesn't have to worry about seizures any more. Poor guy, it's been hard on him for the past week or so.
We are praying so hard for Nana, see my c/p below:
Please keep Carmela Cannata, Rose's mom(Dixie, Kallie, Peepers), in your thoughts and prayers. She fell and broke her hip, you can see details on the calendar page.
We are doing a very short c/p today because mom just got back from the eye doctor. She didn't need a shot today, which is great news. She does have dilated eyeballs, though, which is not fun. It always takes a long time for her eyes to get back to normal after the visits to the specialist. She thinks they use something stronger than what her normal eye doc uses.
I hope you are having a warm day, full of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

The parronts were very glad to learn about the homeschooling type program that allowed skinsis to finish HS and get her diploma. It was a tad pricey but worth it as she worked at her own pace and all materials were sent.

Sunny here and nice out yesterday. Skinsis called for mom to watch the grand while she did some chores. There was also a short shopping trip for baby supplies. Furball was so, so eggcited to see mom.

Sounds like your temps were more normal winter stuff. Would be it easier when she and the family are out doing their errands and bill paying.

Congrats on your new lady bird friend. Baby Girl is a real beauty!
We got our Bird Talk with points, and it came the other day. Mom is so far just looking at it, but I think she'll love the conure article, hahaha.
At the wildlife center there was some bad news today. The center lost Cy, one of the education owls. The little grey phase screech owl was brought to us a few years ago after having fallen (or been pushed) from his nest. He had some neurological problems and was missing an eye, so he couldn't be released. He became one of our dear education animals. Lately though, he's been having more seizures and they've been getting worse, so the decision was made to put him down to save him further suffering. It's always sad when they decide to euthanize an animal there, but one with a name whom everyone has worked with is almost unbearably sad. Mom cried this morning when she read the email, and is still kind of dripping. Cy is okay now, we know, and is whole and healthy once again. Fly free, little Cyclops, we'll all miss you.
I hope you are having a wonderful day, full of cuddles and scritches (and warmth). Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers, Hi, Mario
Have to agree that for many school is stressful and being compared to a sib makes it more so. At least when they reach middle and high school more teachers so less likely to have the same ones eggspecially if take different classes. Part of the problem skinsis had was some teachers tended to 'dumb' down the classes for students that didn't know English as well so she was bored having learned stuff already. That's why they finally took her out and she finished HS thru a homeschool type program.

Sounds like the cold temps continue there. We'll see in a couple of days about the rain. Been getting more windy and yesterday had a thin layer of ice on the windshield so overnight was colder (haven't checked today yet) so hope that means rain is moving closer.

We are gonna keep our wings crossed for skinbro. Good sign that he went for the follow up and going to get the drug test too.

You and Mario look too cute! We like both the pics in your gallery. That second one doesn't look like Mario, though.
Thanks for the great St. Pat's pics go to Aunt Rose once again. She always comes through for us.
We are in the deep freeze again, not that we ever got out of it. Most of the schools around here had a delay today from the cold temps. They were warning people to cover themselves well if they had to go out this morning. When mom walked the dogs, though, it didn't feel that cold. Of course she waited until 9:30, so that probably helped. The dogs' outdoor tie outs have cracked in several places because of the weather, so I guess mom will be buying new ones already.
Nothing much going on today, mom will run some errands and tend to laundry before washing all the cages later on. We've been using Poop Off for years, which works just fine. It's a bit pricey, though, so if anyone has a better alternative, we're open to suggestions.
I hope you have a great day today. Stay warm, and get lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers, Hi, Mario
Love the St. Pat's pics!

There were a couple older teachers at the parronts elementary school that didn't do the comparison. Think new teachers should be taught to acknowledge the student has the older sib but leave it at that. Will always be frustrating for the younger if following an overachiever sib. At least our skinsis didn't have that worry since she is an only child.

Sounds like your dad needs his own tablet to play games, heehee. If your mom ever gets time to use it she can check to see if the avatars/aviaries are viewable. Not super important but mom misses not seeing 'em and does use it occasionally to get to a page.

Certainly hope the rain melted some of the snow/ice. No one needs to deal with a roof collapse and sad to hear of those loss of life trying to help prevent a roof issue. However, would think one would inspect a roof from a ladder and not walk on the roof itself adding yet more weight to it.

Mom finally got a new bag of cornmeal. The last one was a coarse grind and the parronts didn't like it (too hard) but we thought it was yummy. So she got the medium one but hasn't made any more cornbread yet. We eagerly await it as we, like your flock, devour it quickly.

Did you know, that we live in a junk world?

Can opener, 20 Bucks, and if your lucky it last's about a year. Toss it.

Toaster, 50 bucks, maybe two years, Toss it.

Microwave, couple hundred bucks, 3 to 4 year life span. Toss it

TV's. Prices to a few thousand, and 4 years, give or take. Toss it.

Cell phones, usually last 18 months. But you have a 2 years contract. So the last six months you can use two tin cans with a string.

That's always the problem with the milonga, you just can't talk to everybirdie! We wanted to socialize more, but after getting kicked off, and waiting for 15 minutes until we could get back, it got late, so we had to leave.
Our weather is clear but cold today. It's great to see the sun, even if the air is cold.
This morning mom cleaned the recovery room. It was interesting, because of the variety of animals in there. There were 3 snapping turtles, 2 box turtles, a canvasback duck, a Canada goose, a barred owl, a Cooper's hawk, and a broad winged hawk. It was one of those days where the room was short of supplies, so mom had to gather newspaper, paper towels, daily care sheets for some of the charts, and make fresh disinfectant spray for the cages. The Coopers hawk got loose, and mom had to move a bank of cages to get it to fly to where she could net it. Always an adventure there! After the center mom picked up Lena and they went to the Smiling Banana Leaf for lunch. It's a Thai restaurant near where Lena lives. It was quite tasty, too. Then mom picked up a few things at the Giant Eagle, including her prescriptions, and went to the bookstore to order some new reading material.
Now she's back and ours for the day! Once she finishes our blogs and showers, that is. I hope you are having a great day, staying warm and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers, Hi, Mario
That's our old St. Pat's day pic but too good to make a new one. We saw Sugar with one so knew it was time to post since the Milonga was over.

Mom was frequently compared to her older brother but think her younger sis got it worse since the younger one ended up having mostly the same teachers. Luckily mom being closer in age tended to get different ones. Teachers really should know that all kids progress at their own pace and siblings do not want to be compared.

Can't see the avatars/aviary on the Kindle either but eggspected that. Not sure what kinda plug in is required to make it work on the laptop but it doesn't give any idea how to fix or make it work or where to address the situation.

Hopefully the rain melted the roof snow so less weight on there and that the new snow isn't too much to add to it or make it icy to add weight either, yikes! So much to worry about with a cold winter.

Well, having the skinsibs and all the fids together for grooming, baking and visiting is a happy event day. We're sure they were happy to have the fresh baked goodies to take home and sure your dad (when he eventually gets home) will enjoy 'em as well. We know that cornbread was savored by the flock.

Not much going on with us. Mom finally downloaded the couple new pics of the grand. She has to edit a tad and hopefully gets one in our gallery soon.

It was a harrowing drive to and from mom's daughter's house last night. There had been snow until about 4, then it changed to rain, and of course, ice on the roads. Dinner was great, mom only contributed saffron rice, and her daughter made lemon chicken, asparagus, and a lovely salad. The birthday cake was spectacular, it came from a French bakery, it was light and had fresh red raspberries between each layer.
The milonga was a lot of fun last night, and we congratulate all the winners. We got kicked off for about 15 minutes, but other than that, we had a blast. Thanks once again to Kiddo, Taz, and Chyna for her beautiful voice. Thanks also to Spot, Pearl and Silver for playing some good dance music as well.
Today mom is working at the museum, so we are hoping the roads are less icy than they were when she walked the dogs this morning. I hope you are having a good day, staying warm, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

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

  Hi, Peepers, Hi, Mario
It is best when babies are allowed to learn those milestones at their own pace. Such a difference between baby skinbro and baby skinsis as never think of such opposites in one family. Guess the age difference was too far for skinbro to try to catch up to her. When dad's nephews were lil think the younger one learned things quicker since the older one was less than two years older. He didn't talk much at first either.

Haven't eggplored firefox too much yet. Don't like that can't see the avatars or the aviary with it. Says it needs a plug in but not sure what that means or how to remedy it?

We certainly hope no home roof collapse but good to have a plan. Would be just so awful but have heard of some businesses having it happen.

Such a fun Milonga. Loved all the rainforest pics and we congratulate all the winners. So awesome that Dixie and Lil Angel won two awards.

Guess people would know approximately when each bill should arrive and could always call and ask the amount if don't receive it due to the weather. No one wants to get behind on their bills.

The four 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug. All of them hold on very tight and nobirdie wants to let go as they all bask in the warmth and joy of their friendship.

Keep warm, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

Someone must have done something very bad in Mother Nature's bowl of oatmeal, cause she sure is being mean to the folks up North. R T

  Hi Peepers
Your mom did stations? It must have been an afternoon service, so she could get home in time to feed you and get all those groceries put away. Mom thinks they only do stations here after 7 or so at night.
Mario is a dear little love, isn't he? It's good that he's still eating well.
Today it's snowing like crazy, must be 4 inches out there already, and it hasn't slowed down yet. Mom walked the dogs, and they all came back with a layer of snow on top of fur and mom's coat, hahaha. We are glad we don't have to go out in this. The wildlife center cancelled Raptor Handling training. Mom will stay in until it's time for dinner.
Tonight mom and the family are celebrating Lena's birthday with a dinner. Everyone was going to come here, but mom's daughter does not like driving her monster of a car in the snow, so now they're all going to her house. Lena will pick mom up, though, so it's less cars to try to park. Hopefully we will be back in time for the milonga, but if not, we will be there as soon as mom returns. I hope to see you tonight. Till then, stay warm, get lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers, Hi, Mario
Sounds like baby skinbro was in no hurry to walk. Babies learn at their own pace. Skinsis didn't talk much but her 6 months younger girl cousin talked up a storm at less than 2 years. Could be cause she had an older half sis who was teen at the time.

We shall keep our wings crossed for skinbro to find a job soon. Can understand the frustration but he's just gotta keep at it and something will turn up soon.

Not sure what is up with the internet today. Mom was using internet eggsplorer and it just would not load. She considered getting the kindle out and seeing if it worked there but decided to just download another brower. Neither dad or skinsis use internet eggplorer so she's been thinking about switching anyway. However, it doesn't support our avatars or aviaries!

Mom thinks she won't let the grand touch us. She's got furball to pet anyway. Yes, furball is very kid oriented and so long as you leave her tail alone is fine with anything else.

That is good your mom was able to get her mail and get those bills paid. Would be terrible to fall behind but know that not everyone wants to go online for that (the parronts don't) and doubt companies care that they didn't receive their mail in a timely fashion.

The four 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug. All of them hold on very tight to feel the warmth surround their bodies in the cold temps there and soon they are swaying and humming in happiness.

Keep warm, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.
