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!.

Hi! My name is Peepers

I am a Cinnamon Mutation Cockatiel from Marstons Mills, MA.

Peeps,Big Boy,

23 years old   M

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!.

"where there is floor tiel will travel, watch your step cuz im goin for a run!".

  Hi Peepers
You don't have to worry about your brother any more, he is safe and well here with us, and we'll always be friends with him, like we are with Gabbie. Angel hugs, Divo and Gizmo

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

  Hi, Peepers
More snow? No sunshine? Yikes! Sure wish we could share ours with you. Temps here dropped back to the 70s so it was ideal out. Think next few days will hover in the 70s to 80s range but hopefully we'll stay in the lower end.

So happy to hear that Dixie ate with gusto at Nana's joining the family at the table. He must have missed visiting Nana and now knows she's all right. Hopefully he will once again eat when returns home.

Hopefully your mom savored every bite of that donut. The parronts rarely have 'em either but occasionally will go have one. Always smells so wonderful in the shop.

The three 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug and hold on tight. As they warm up they begin to sway and hum and Peepers begins to sing like Angel Mario as they remember him.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Don't worry about Mario, he's here, he's flying around making friends, and he and Gabbie haven't stopped chattering to each other since he got here. His toes are perfect here, and he is like a young bird again. We will take care of him always, we love him. Angel Hugs, Divo and Gizmo

  Hi, Peepers
Once again our weather is the total opposite of yours. Lots of sunshine and temps in the mid 80s yesterday. Just too warm for spring. Sure could use that rain you got.

Glad that the doc appointment went well and that Nana's healing is progressing. Good that skinbro ensured no slipping and falling helping Nana everytime since it was wet outside.

That is so awesome the donut place made the Bavarian cream flavor fresh for your mom. The ones near us are open 24 hours so they make batches more than once a day. (Okay, now mom wants a donut, heehee.)

Sounds like Dixie misses going out with your mom to Nana's to visit the cousins. Hopefully isn't pouring rain when he goes but just haveta keep him covered if it is.

The three 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug and hold on tight. Even though they know Angel Mario's at the Rainbow Bridge it feels like he's still there as part of the embrace and know they will keep loving him no matter what.

  Hi, Peepers
Just left Kacey's page and read about your mom having to clean out Angel Mario's birdhouse and store it out of sight. We know it gonna take time for the flock and family to adjust to not seeing him or hearing him singing anymore but that he's now watching over them all with Angel Gabbie and that he's healthy and flying free.

We're gonna keep our wings crossed that Nana's appointment goes smoothly. Sure sounds like she's doing well with the PT and the visiting nurse check ups. That really is awesome they are coming so often to ensure healing is progressing properly.

Temps here went up to the low 70s yesterday. Supposed to warm to 80 soon. That is just too high for spring. Be great to mix with yours as we hear that east coast is still cold. Hopefully you are still getting sunshine as that does always help the day look brighter.

  Hi Peepers
We came to offer our deepest sympathy on the loss of your Mario. We want you to know that we were there with Gabbie to welcome him to the Rainbow Bridge. He is well again, no more pain ever now! He misses all of you, but he will settle in nicely here, and get to know all of us. Hugs and angel kisses, Divo, Gizmo, and Gabbie

  Pearl & Silver come flying in with
wings wide open for a big group 'tiel wing hug with Peepers. Tears are streaming down all their faces as they share their grief at Angel Mario's flight to the Rainbow Bridge. Soon the rest of the flock joins in the embrace as they also feel the loss. They all know Angel Mario had a wonderful life and lived it to the fullest right to the end.

The 'tiel frothers begin to strum their guitars to sing the Blackhawk song 'Spirit Dancer' in Mario's honor.

Dear Lord help us understand why
You came and took him by the hand
And led him to his new home in the sky.

Our hearts weren't ready to let him go,
So this is our way to let him know that we miss him
And our love for him will never die.

Spirit dancer he dances his way into our hearts
Spirit dancer right beside us from the very start
Spirit dancer spirit dancer dance for me

You can hear him singing every once in a while,
He's right beside us every mile we go,
Every town, every show.

Spirit dancer he dances on the stars above
Spirit dancer flying on the wings of love
Spirit dancer spirit dancer dance for me

Way up high,
Where eagles fly to hear your harmony
Someday soon we'll all be there
So save a dance for me

Spirit dancer he dances his way into our hearts
Spirit dancer right beside us from the very start
Spirit dancer spirit dancer dance for me

  Hi, Peepers, Hi, Mario
Still cold and no snow melt? Good you at least have some sunshine so it isn't so gloomy outside.

Hopefully your mom can catch up a tad with chores around the house with Nana having so many VNA visits. They really should've let her know if gonna be more than half hour late as gets worrisome and no one needs that.

Gosh, we were just gonna ask how Mario was doing. Thanks for the update. Sounds like he's doing well if eventually eating his entire meal and getting enough naps in.

That is good your dad is able to prepare the tax returns for the family. The parronts have an accountant they use every year but not sure what they'll do when he retires.

The weather was mild for the zoo trip. The grand seemed more interested in the plants and other kids than the critters but she wasn't scared either.

  Hi, Peepers, Hi, Mario
Still no warmup? At least you had the sunshine as that does make a lot of difference. Still mild here and was quite pleasant for walking the lil zoo/park on Sat for mom, skinsis and the grand.

That is good that your mom didn't have to rush off to Nana's since skinbro was there and she was eggspecting the VNA anyway. Gives your mom time to do things at her house and hopefully rest and relax a tiny bit.

The parronts always do their taxes in Feb. In case they get a refund they want it sooner. Hopefully all your family gets refunds.

Sounds like Candida and Trixie II should be good to start learning the tricks. We know that Dixie must be mostly retired from doing 'em due to his gout but imagine he still enjoys performing for your mom on occasion when he isn't in too much discomfort.

The doc offices were all within a half mile of each other. It was just frustrating walking around the complex of the old location and being bewildered at not being able to see where it was (not at that location obviously!) and knowing was gonna be late - which is always irksome when leave in plenty of time.

The four 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug and hold on tightly for a long, long time. So happy that everything is going well they begin humming and swaying in happiness and joy.

  Hi Peepers, Hi, Mario
Good to have found the doc office. One time mom took dad for an appointment. They sent him to another office to get a test done. Well, they couldn't find the place! They had to call the first place and get directions and turns out they were given the wrong address! (They were at the location given but the place had moved!) Good thing it new address was just one block over, whew!

Hopefully all Nana's houseplants will bounce back from the lack of watering.

The visit to the zoo/park was nice. Weather was perfect. The grand was more interested in checking out the foliage and other kids than seeing the critters. Many were snoozing or out of sight though mom and skinsis enjoyed seeing 'em. There were some parrots there as well. Three macaws, a 'Too and a pair of Ekkies. When the grand is a lil older she'll enjoy the kid sized rides and the huge playground.

Brrrrrr, again, so, so cold there! Good that skinbro is helping your mom with all the errand runs and that the worker at the dump knows your mom despite not having the sticker.

It is always good to check a receipt after buying a large number of items. Mom's been overcharged before too and best to return right away rather than having gone home and then figured out the problem. It really is strange that she got all those cans of soup and one rang at the wrong price.

That is wonderful that Nana is healing so quickly and know she is quite motivated to being able to do things for herself. Guess other patients just aren't that active? Gotta strengthen the muscles and that means moving 'em.

Hopefully this snow will be going away soon so your dad isn't having to be out all night. It is spring but know many areas it takes awhile for it to arrive.

Mom is taking skinsis and the grand to a lil zoo/park today. It has been around since mom was a kid. Naturally the parronts took skinsis when she was young. Should be a nice day out for walking around.

Think mom's store is gonna need to hire a couple new people. They've lost a few workers and makes it hard to find replacements when someone calls out and everyone else is already working or already is scheduled to work five days that week.

Continues springlike here but forecast for rain on Mon. Sure hope it arrives but we aren't holding our breath. Hopefully you'll get warmer. At least you got the sunshine.

That is good Nana is getting the good work out by the VNA. Maybe other patients aren't as active and that's why they complain about it hurting. If don't move the muscles then will never get the range of motion and strength back.

The best employees are the ones who continually ask questions and ask for assistance if don't know how to do something so they learn. Also don't complain if asked to help out at the register or possibly cleaning up spills (or worse, lots of kids visit) or taking out trash, etc. Mom's seen the managers do all the above when necessary.

  Hi Peepers and Mario,
So glad that you are able to blog again but don't worry about coming everyday if you have things to do. I know it's a lot to take care of Nana, your sister and all the housework too. I didn't know that Nana had her own home, I thought she lived with all of you. That is even harder on you but I know you are happy that she is home.

I enjoy coming to the NTT each week and look forward to it. Even when we were campaigning on the other channel and I couldn't blog much, we always went over to the NTT every week. We never missed. It is soo nice to have Dixie and Kallie back with us. I also enjoy doing some research to find out the theme.

Hope you're having a good day!!Leaving you a vote! Tell Nana we said hello!

Brrrrr, so cold there with the wind chill. Good the sun was out even if it doesn't help warm at least it looks nicer. We were a couple degrees warmer so mom was silly and had a long sleeved shirt on and was wishing she'd changed before she went over to see skinsis and the grand. The baby is crawling very quickly now. Still learning to balance when standing.

Good that the grab bars are installed so Nana will be more steady and that all the bills are paid. The housework can wait.

At mom's work learning the job of others is called cross training. Even if one isn't usually a cashier or do returns the goal is to get everyone trained so all can help out. When the regular worker is out sick or on vacation someone has to fill in.

Oh, yeah, those Irish songs were tough! We only knew one but sang one of our own. A few years back mom had bought a CD by the Irish group The Corrs that featured traditional music of their homeland. Mom wasn't familiar with any of the songs but she enjoys their singing so bought it and loves it.

Thanks for stopping by! I know you are not able to give a vote by that's alright, I'm just glad you came and left me a blog. It is good to hear from you. I am happy to have you back and I'm glad Nana is doing well. I didn't expect you back so soon. It is good to see you again at the NTT.

Thanks too for the compliment on my pictures. I'm glad you like them. Mom does a good job too on our NTT prize pictures! We just love all the ones she makes for us.

Hope you had a good St. Patrick's Day! We had a nice one and good food. Enjoy the rest of your day. Tell Nana we said hello. Leaving a vote for you too!

Temps dropped to around 70 here so it was quite pleasant out. Still need so much rain though. Hopefully you'll get more sun and warmer temps since spring is very close.

That's good to get everything moved in Nana's home so she's able to get around and won't get stuck. Sounds like things are going well there and hope that Bella gets used to the walker. Maybe if she sees that Trixie II is okay with it that will help,

Think all the supervisors/managers should know how to do all the jobs. Mom's store trains a lot of workers that are either being promoted in other stores or are newly hired for other stores. Everyone gets to help train newbies.

Happy St. Patrick's day to the flock and family.

Sounds like things are slowly getting back to normal with your family and Nana too. Good that skinbro is staying with her for a lil while to help do the chores and such. Hopefully the nurse visits continue to do well and that the PT gives more strength and the discomfort will subside.

We got our cooldown yesterday after the too warm w/e. It was more like end of winter should be eggcept we didn't get any rain. Still have hopes of getting more this month but doubt we'll get out of the drought.

Not so busy shopperwise at mom's work yesterday as is normal for a Mon. However, mom was super busy with her tasks and the stock crew was busy moving things around. Today she'll continue with Mon work and help train a worker from another store who is being promoted. All the supervisors must learn all the various jobs so they can fill in and help.

So wonderful that Nana is back home with her fids where she belongs. That is good that skinbro will stay with her for a lil while in case he needs to move anything around so Nana is able to get everywhere and get everything. Too bad the weather is still cold and snowy/rainy. Hopefully your sun will return.

We had another warm day yesterday (80s) but hopefully temps will drop down today. Another busy, busy day at mom's work Sun but at least everyone scheduled showed up so it wasn't too bad. Still kept having to run back and up to the front to help out at the registers or the return counter. The phones continue to ring a lot too.

Hopefully all the vitals are within acceptable range when the nurse visits and that healing is going well.

Gosh sure wish we could blend our temps together. Yours is too cold and ours was very warm yesterday as we got well into the 80s. Today should be back to the 70s and later in the week down to the 60s. The warmth wasn't too bad just too early for it all.

Think the family needs to assist Nana into her house if the ground is at all wet with ice or snow. Can't take a chance of any type of slipping. Once she's safely inside she'll be fine since she's doing so well walking the longer distances.

Good your mom is all stocked up on food and supplies. We know she didn't have time to do any shopping and bare minimum of chores after taking care of your dad and the flock. Hopefully things will get back to normal quickly.

Yesterday was quite busy at mom's work. No dedicated cashier so everyone had to run up there to help out when they got backed up. Lots of beach things being sold since it was warm out. Eggspect today to be busy as well.

Sounds like everything is falling into place there for Nana's return home with the clean laundry, food and all the safety measures to be installed. Good to have the nurse visit scheduled too.

Gosh, 20 missed staples? Hopefully all of 'em were taken out this time as certainly wouldn't want any left behind to cause trouble later.

Another slow day for mom at work yesterday. Perhaps it was due to it being a Fri the 13th? The parronts never have a problem with that day. Eggspect the entire w/e to be busy, busy and today is forecast to reach 80, yuck! Too soon for summer temps but at least it only supposed to last one day then return to the 70s and then drop into the 60s, whew!

We are keeping our wings crossed for Nana and for skinbro too in his ongoing hunt for a better job.

It is so good to hear from you. Awesome to hear that Nana can return home on Sun to her fids and decent food. Good to get those safety measures installed and the alert button too. It is just fortunate that when Nana fell that skinsis was with her as who knows when someone might've found her outside in the cold.

Hopefully your family will be able to get somewhat more back to normal once Nana is home but we know that your mom will be helping out. Is the weather warming up to melt the snow and make driving less treacherous? At least the distance to Nana's is a familiar route for your mom.

Again, we thank Kacey for the continuing updates on Nana. So glad your family was able to get Nana to the hospital for her x rays and hopefully all shows well. We wonder if they will be able to give feedback on the rehab place? Doubt they'd want to give a recommendation for anyone to go there with the bad food and other issues.

We had a tad bit of rain yesterday. Now we're looking at a warm up back to the 70s and supposed to reach 80 on Sat! Just too high for it still being technically winter but it should only be the one day.

Tried to post the newest pic of the grand but mom couldn't find it. All her pics are in various folders and know it is there somewhere. At least she finally got the NTT pic of us with Chipper put there.

Such wonderful news about Nana possibly being able to return home on Fri. Also awesome her fids were able to visit so they know she is all right. They must've been so worried and confused. We continue to keep our wings crossed for her.

Sprinkling a bit today but doubt it'll turn into real rain in our area. Still, it'll be good for the plants.

Mom's day off so waiting for stores to open to run some errands. In the meantime we'll have some French toast and supervise laundry until then.

Such good news in Kacey's update about Nana. Since she can get to the bathroom and dress herself hopefully means can go home soon and away from the yucky food.

Well, thought the w/e at mom's work was hectic but Mon saw no dedicated cashier (normal since Mon isn't that busy) but then find out no return person scheduled either! So mom had to do it! She doesn't mind it but she has so many price changes to deal with they were not finished so has to play catch up today assuming there is someone other than her to man the front.

Supposedly some rain might fall tomorrow or Thu. We'll see but doubt too much will arrive in our area. However, if the mountains get any snow that'll be good.

Sounds like Nana is doing so well being able to negotiate stairs. Good she doesn't have many steps at her house. Know at your parronts home there are the ones to the laundry and that would be too scary for someone recovering with a hip repair to deal with.

Busy, busy all w/e at mom's work. Not sure why management didn't schedule a dedicated cashier so mom and coworkers kept having to run back to the registers to help out the one manning the return counter and the one in electronics area. Today should be slower since it is Mon and that is typically the way it is.

Springlike weather continues for us. Low 70s and sunny. Need more rain though else we're looking at year four of drought. Yikes!

Sounds like Nana is progressing very well despite the terrible food. Hopefully the pneumonia is getting better too since it was caught so early. Also hope the weather and roads haven't been too bad for traveling everyday to visit but good if skinbro is able to drive your mom.

We continue to have our wings crossed for Nana. We also hope her fids are doing well without her and can all be reunited soon.

Mom babysat the grand yesterday after work. Such a joy she is.

  Hi Peepers, Hi Mario
So glad Nana was able to navigate her way to the bathroom on her own. That should be a good sign that she'll be able to go home really soon. We thank Kacey again for posting all the updates.

The family celebrated gpa's 85th yesterday. The grand was very well behaved at the table since her parronts brought her snacks and her food. Later she was held by most of the relatives (mom's parronts and sibs).

Pearl & Silver grab guitars and begin to strum and sing a song. It is called 'Right Here' by Ashes Remain from their 2011 CD What I've Become:

I can see every tear you've cried
like an ocean in your eyes
All the pain and the scars have left you cold
I can see all the fears you face
through a storm that never goes away
Don’t believe all the lies that you’ve been told

[Chorus]
I’ll be right here now
to hold you when the sky falls down
I will always
be the One who took your place
When the rain falls
I won’t let go
I’ll be right here

I will show you the way back home
never leave you all alone
I will stay until the morning comes
I’ll show you how to live again
and heal the brokenness within
Let me love you when you come undone

(repeat chorus)

When daybreak seems so far away
reach for my hand
When hope and peace begin to fray
still I will stand

(repeat chorus)

When the rain falls I won’t let go
I’ll be right here.

  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.

  Hi, Peepers, Hi, Mario
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.

  Hi, Peepers, Hi, Mario
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.

  Hi, Peepers, Hi, Mario
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
And it isn't getting any better. Seems the big news every morning in the paper is that there was another shooting. Tampa is really getting bad. R T

  Hi Peepers,
Thank you for keeping me posted on Nana's condition. We will definitely keep her in our prayers! If you cannot blog me too much, don't worry about it. I know you are exhausted from all that has happened. Hope you are getting better weather there!

Talk to you soon. Have a good night!! Leaving a vote for you.

Your friend,
Chipper

  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
