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,
So glad that you like the pic with the soda cans. We were going to make you one at the same time we made ours because I knew you would like them. But then when you commented on how unique they were and how much you liked them, we made it for you. I tried to email it but it didn't come out. I sent it anyway hoping that when you viewed the picture, it would come out but I look at my "sent" emails and it looked like it didn't take. I don't know why the picture didn't come out. Any of the pics that I make and put in my gallery that you like, we can make them for you, as long as we can find the picture again! Just let me know if there is a specific one that you would like and what bird from your flock you would like in that picture!

If you are visiting just Kookie and myself in NJ, it may be better for you to come here first and then go to Kookie and from there go up to NY and then into PA. It also depends where you are going in PA. Are you going to Philadelphia or further into PA? Let mom know when you make your plans. I guess you would have to know where you are going first before making them. We can also do it my email.

We are having a good weekend with nice weather. Hope you're having good weather too! Stay cool. Left a vote.

  Hi Peepers
Don't you just love this time of year when you can reach out into the yard/garden for fresh tomatoes, peppers, and herbs? Mom loves cooking with fresh herbs.
Yesterday mom went to a fruit stand across the river for some seasonal goodies. She was hoping for blueberries, because she saw what a good price they were, but they were already sold out when she got there. So instead, we have a fresh canary melon, some Chambersburg peaches (more or less local), pluots, plums, and for us especially, an orange pepper and a fresh zucchini. The pluots look especially juicy, but mom cut up melon and peaches for us this morning. (Falco won't touch any of that, she doesn't know what she's missing.) Mom didn't know what canary melons were, but they look like honeydew on the inside and are sweet. Pluots are plum/apricot hybrids, and are usually great.
It looks like another pool day and another day of toting that watering can all over the place. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of fresh summer produce and cuddles. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Temps here are staying in the low 80s so that is reasonable for summer. Still, we hope it drops back to the 70s soon. Glad you are staying warm there though having to sit in traffic twice as long to get anywhere isn't enjoyable. Guess gotta eggspect it for the w/e as more are out and about with the tourists.

Wow, what a good supply of wild bird seed the parronts bought. Should last a good while and know they appreciate it so much. At least there were a few boxes of popcorn to tide your dad over until find more.

Well, mom could've said no to going into work on Fri but she knew if she didn't she'd probably have a mess to deal with on Sun (her next scheduled day)and just made it easy for herself. It is always fun to see skinsis and the grand. The grand and furball are always happy to see mom.

The parronts didn't go to the flea market. Shopped for some household staples instead. There'll be another flea market next month.

Your mom and Nana were right, Bella could get herself caught in that netting.

  Hi, Peepers
Temps here went down further yesterday so low 80s. We did get a tad bit of humidity as forecast but with the temp drop it didn't feel that bad. Mom never got to the farmer's market. She got called to work for a couple hours. Then skinsis called so mom took her and the grand shopping. Today is the flea market but hasn't decided if going yet or not.

Sounds like your mom needed that cool water since temps got so warm there. Even if not hot it is good to have the water bottle just in case as never know if get stuck in traffic. Hopefully overnight temps went down as 81 at 7pm is terrible.

That is good to use the lil toaster oven to dry out the pellets from dampness due to humidity. Can't waste food.

We knew your mom would know that theme song we sang at NTT. Not sure we've heard the Perry Como version unless he sang it for the show? She has the one that Bobby Sherman did on an old album.

  Hi Peepers,
Thanks for the compliment on my new profile pic and the piano one in my gallery! When I saw the profile one, I just had to make it. It is so bright and colorful! That was so sweet of mom to let me pick another prize picture. We really love the pictures that she makes. She does a beautiful job on them! We have this pic of me that we are using now for the profile one, as you have seen. We would like to get some ones we already have with this picture. We really appreciate mom doing this and it is so sweet of her to make these prize pics for all of us.

I know you are planning on visiting Kookie's mom when you come to NJ. They actually live closer to NY then we do. They are quite far from where we live. But maybe we can plan something.

Have a good weekend!!! Leaving a vote for you.

  Hi Peepers
Oh we know it's Nana that needs the cage for Trixie, but we were thinking it's a good place to find one. Maybe your mom can help her find one online, too.
Peppino thanks you for the votes!
Mom is just watering with the watering can, she decided not to take any chances.
Today mom was assigned the Avian Nursery with 3 other people. It was great, because they had all the cages cleaned before mom left! That rarely happens in summer, when everything is full. Mom cleaned and fed robins (lots), an oriole, a couple of mockingbirds, a few crows, some ducklings, a killdeer, and some jays. She loves that place, there are always birds in there she hasn't seen up close before. Today it was the oriole.
When she went to the pool, they weren't letting anyone in the water because there was no chlorine in there. It took a couple of hours to get the pump fixed and the level where it should be, so mom only got in the water for a few minutes before it was time to come home and blog.
I hope you are having a wonderful day, getting some sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Peepers
Temps went down more yesterday. In the upper 80s so still too warm as far as mom is concerned but not blazing hot like the 90s. We'll see if get any humidity later today but just in case it'll be out early for errands and stay in for the afternoon.

Never had pellets that got soggy from the humid air. Sounds yucky. Good to only have a lil bit that eat right away and have more later if don't like 'me damp. Know some fids 'dunk' their food but know also that pellets wouldn't hold up well to that!

Yes, drying on the line is great if able to do it. Avoids the house getting heated from the dryer, saves energy and $$ too. Win-win all around.

Both parronts have a cooler in the trunk too. Usually have some water bottles and energy bars. Never know if might get stuck somewhere. Always have a bottle of water to drink while out shopping to sip on here and there. If don't drink it all just take inside and finish later. Could even fill a reusable water bottle if don't want to buy prefilled ones to save on cost.

Have to agree cleaning up the mess of the pizza box is nothing compared to the stress of seeing Candida with her lil head stuck in that grate! Know never, ever wanna see that sight again.

Farmer's market day so mom is thinking of going over to get some fruit/veggies. Not sure what they might have.

  Hi Peepers,
Are there any others that live in NJ? It may be hard to find a place where everyone can meet because they may live in different areas. Let me know when you have all your plans made.
Thank you for the compliment. I know mom can make those pictures just as good. I know I won the NTT last time (for Eyes) but the time before I didn't know it (for Days or Colors.) Are you saying I won both times because I've been coming faithfully? Let me know and I will pick out my pics, how ever many I won. If it's just one, that's fine too. I am going to try to get you a pic soon.

Hope you're having a good day!! Leaving a vote for you.

  Hi Peepers
If mom can wait for Parrot Palooza, they had some great prices on cages last year, and should again this year.
Today is a beautiful summer day, but it didn't rain like it was supposed to this morning. Mom will be at the pool today again, then out to dinner with her sis. Sometime today is cage cleaning, too, as garbage pickup is tomorrow and mom noticed some raggedy looking toys here and there. I hope you are having a great day today, getting lots of love and good weather. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Yesterday was slightly cooler even though the forecast was to be the hottest day of the week. Today should be a bit lower too but humidity will return later or Fri so know that'll just make if feel hot again. The parronts made sure to get out early before too hot to do the errands. Mom did all the laundry in between.

Hmmmm, gas prices here are always higher. Don't think mom's filled up for around $20 for years. Can't quite recall but in the $3.50 range give or take. Good thing for gas points to make it a tad cheaper.

When hot out mom always takes a bottle of water in the car to sip on. Even if not thirsty sips on it anyway to keep hydrated. Apparently if feel thirsty then already getting low. Does take a while for the car a/c to help if the car has gotten to the oven stage by being parked in the sun.

That is good for Candida to chomp the pizza box rather than trying to get to the papers under the grate. Anything is better than risking her getting her head stuck. Know the clean up is more but that is always doable.

  Hi Peepers
Boring days mean more mom time, what could be better?
Yesterday mom was at the pool, finished one novel and started another. Today will be another pool day, because it's already sunny and bright outside.
Remember how we were sad to see all that rain earlier this year? Well, now mom is hoping for some rain for her flowers. The hose hookup is in the garage where the cabinets are being stored, and she doesn't want to hook it up because it leaks. It might warp some of the cabinets, and that's just not acceptable. She's kind of thinking of hooking up the hose to a stationary tub by the washer, and running it out from the basement, but we'll have to see how that looks with the water running.
Anyway, cold meals are the thing. Last night mom made chicken salad with a piece of meat she had cooked the night before. Tonight it may be tuna salad, we have some tuna steaks in the freezer and one of them should cook up in no time.
I hope you are staying cool and still getting some sun and cuddles. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
What a good idea to add the baby food veggies to the bean mix to ensure a healthy variety. Know that the special diet does help keep the gout symptoms at bay as know with mom's parronts certain foods are to be avoided at all costs. Know not having to use the syringe is less stressful on fids.

Sometimes see signs on buildings that stores are open despite any construction around 'em. The last couple of days in front of mom's work (and farther) all lanes but one were open. Makes traffic slow and harder to get in/out of the parking lot. Not sure how long this road work (think working on something underground as they are digging) will last. Haven't heard of mom's store is doing okay with the sales but the majority is done on the w/e when there isn't any work being done.

Okay, not having sidewalks with bad drivers around isn't safe for kids. In that instance can see where driving would be preferable but just want all parronts driving to go slower and not rush. They should think of all the kids out there as if it was there own!

That's great skinsis will get the check to cover her car repair and that it is already being worked on. What a relief for her.

Yesterday's 90s weren't bad since not humid but mom didn't linger anyway and just came straight home from work. Today is supposed to be even hotter! Then tomorrow is forecast to be humid and even if temps drop it'll seem hotter, yikes!

We never had any cats looking in on us, whew! What a awful thing to have a cat staring in at the flock wanting to get at you!

  Hi Peepers,
We will definitely make arrangements to meet somewhere. It would be nice to also see Dixie, Kallie, and Candida, if it's possible. I don't know about me but I'll see what we can do. I guess it depends on where we meet or how long you will be here. Thanks for all the nice compliments you said about me in your last blog. I appreciate it and I think mom is so sweet. Just can't wait to meet her. About the prize pic, I only won last week. The other time I didn't know the theme or even any songs for that matter. I usually know at least one. I will pick out a picture soon. Have a good evening!! Leaving a vote for you.

  Hi Peepers
Mom knows not to interact with the patients. The baby jays were begging for food the same as they would beg from their parents, but mom knew to ignore that behavior, as nobody wants to have birds that can't be released.
We are in a streak of good weather here. It's gonna be another bright sunshiny day, so mom will be heading out at noon for a few hours at the pool. Everything will need watered soon if it doesn't rain, though. This is going to present a problem, since the hookup for the hose is in the garage with the new cabinets. Mom doesn't want to have any water in the garage until the cabinets are out of there. She can't do laundry until they are moved, either, since the dryer vents into the garage.
The other day mom won a little basket at the pool fundraiser. She thought at first glance that it was tea, but when she opened it yesterday, there was pasta, sauce, some candies, a gift card, and one box of tea. The good thing is that it's English Breakfast tea, which mom likes. She is starting to pick tomatoes from the planters, too! We got some Siberian ones and a couple of indigo blues yesterday. Mom put pesto on them for a little salad, and they were delicious.
I hope you are having a great day today and getting lots of love. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Happy to hear that you have been very healthy as well. We aspire to reach your age one day. Never know about stuff like gout. Both mom's parronts have it to some degree. Still, so long as your mom knows how to handle it with the diet and the meds, the massages, etc then know Dixie is having the best quality of life he can. Syringe sounds yucky but sure your mom is eggspert now on using it!

Think most stores will stay open no matter what. If the construction is just around them and not the actual store no reason not to be open but just difficult for shoppers to get there.

Parronts dropping off kids just need to slow down and be aware of other kids walking, riding bikes and such. When mom was a kid no one drove their kids to school. Everyone walked or biked. Not sure when the change happened.

Pet peeve of the parronts is people who allow their cats to roam. They do not appreciate finding any cat messes and certainly don't need any pestering birds.

Hopefully skinsis is getting all the info she needs about the car accident. She should not have to pay anything for her care or the car repair/replacement.

Warmed up started yesterday. Not too bad but not looking forward to 90s+ temps eggspecially if it might be humid as the most recent forecast is predicting.

The rash continues to clear up but not all the way gone yet. Less itchy, whew!

  Hi Peepers,
Thanks so much for the compliment on my pow wow picture! To be honest with you, it was a imikimi pic. I did though, pizap in the head and I also edited it a little. I only found out about making the pics for the milonga the following morning. It was put on the calendar so late that I didn't know about it until the next day. So I made a real quick one, just for my gallery. I'm glad you like the basketball pics we have for the team. I hope to make a team one sometime in the future when we have all the profile pics done of all the players. Then I could switch the profile pic and use the team pic as well as just mine. Everyone must get tired of seeing my pic on there all the time. LOL

I was sooo honored to have you as one of my elders. I am glad that you liked the gift basket too.

Would love to see your mom when she comes here. We can make arrangements to meet her somewhere. I don't know about me, I usually don't go out unless it is to the vet. And if we meet at a place, they may not allow pets. But we will make a plan to meet with mom. Mom can't wait! It sounds like the two of you are going have an awesome time. We can make arrangements by email.

I also need to get you a pic of me because I won the theme for last week. So glad to win. Last time I didn't even know the theme. I'm not sure which one I want just yet but I will try to get you something by this week or the beginning of next week so I don't get behind.

Hope your week is off to a good start. Leaving you a vote.

I hope Anthony loves his new place and has a lot of happy times there. Also, we all hope Nana is doing better, not in so much pain.
It was an interesting morning at the center today. Mom was assigned to clean and feed in the raptor aviaries, the main aviary, and the small flight aviary. She was well on her way, had done the raptors (4 great horned owls and a red tailed hawk), and was cleaning the main aviary, which is currently divided into 2 separate areas, keeping the fledglings indoors and the more adult birds outside. One of the other RVS certified volunteers called off, so Bree came to see mom. She said, "I need a big favor." So mom thought she was going to assign her the RVS animals again. Instead, she said we have an RVS certified intern! Could you teach Haneen how to do the outdoor pens, and someone else will teach her on the indoor cages? Mom was so happy to do that. She still got to do the main aviary, and was able to coach the intern on how to do the outdoor pens. That meant cleaning both areas of the aviary and trying her best not to interact with the fledgling jays. They landed on her, fluttered their wings, begging for food, and she had to ignore that, clean, then feed them from bowls instead of by hand. They are growing up so fast.
It was hot this morning, and only got hotter as the day went on, so we all know where mom spent the afternoon! Yes! Lounging at the pool on her noodle, coming out to read and get a sip of iced tea. Now she's home, blogging for us, and will spend the rest of the day with us. I hope you are having a great summer day, getting some sunshine and lots of cuddles. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Mom's glad that she's never had to give us meds. Knows it would be a challenge to get it inside of us and hopefully we never get gout or anything else as we get older.

Never thought about there being a sign saying stores are open during construction but have seen 'em at shopping centers where there are multiple stores. The location mom is at the store is a stand alone with their parking lot just for them.

Don't think our mom could back into a garage! That's when you need the Batman garage that has the turntable so the car can get turned to face out! Kids are same everywhere in that they don't always check as they walk by driveways for cars trying to back out. The parronts make a point of always leaving before school time or after school starts to avoid it all and also to avoid the bad parront drivers dropping kids off at the schools.

Aunt Teri did a fantastic job on your PowWow milonga pics. We'll have to compliment her on 'em.

Weather here has been nice the last few days but forecast to return to hot tomorrow. Hopefully it won't last long or get as high as predicted. Mom'll be ready for the ovenlike feel when she leaves work.

  Hi Peepers,
So glad to hear that mom and her sister are both feeling better!!

Your profile picture came out so good! Glad to see you at the milonga last night. You were one of the elders I adopted so I was glad to see you there so I could give you the gift basket that I brought for you. Hope you had a good time!

Thanks for the compliment on my pictures! Mom is soo sweet. Maybe I could meet her one day. I know she could do just as good on the pictures she makes. She uses one of the programs that I use and you just add the picture. It just needs to be centered or made the right size and it will come out good. We just love the pictures mom makes for our prize pics. She does such a beautiful job on them. We look forward to them because they always come out sooo nice. The programs are nice to use because you get your original picture. We made another one for the basketball page too. Eventually, we would like to make another team pic!

Hope you are having a good day!! Leaving a vote for you.

Don't you just love the elder pics? I sure do.
Maybe Nana will be able to travel to Parrot Palooza in October. Hope sis gets that car back pretty soon, too.
Last night was a fantastic time for all of us, I think. Thanks to Kiddo, Taz, Kaji and Lizzie, and especially Panther for another great milonga! We all had a terrific time.
Mom went to Madonna del Castello last night for their festa, and got a hot sausage sandwich, melanzane rolatini, and pizza fritta to bring home. That's eggplant stuffed with ricotta and fried pizza dough for those not acquainted with such delicacies. Mom doesn't make eggplant all that often any more, and never fries dough! It was sure tasty.
Today is a bright sunny pool day, and later, a birdie kind of evening. I hope you are having a wonderful summer day and that your feet aren't too tired from all that dancing. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
We consider ourselves fortunate to both have been so healthy over the years and no injuries either. Hope all our vet visits are as boring with nothing to say.

The thing with skinsis hubby car is he knew it needed some work but his main car is the one that is in the shop. It was purchased new end of last year and has died on him in the heat three times now. Been in the shop off/on for almost a month so it'll qualify for the lemon law soon.

When mom gets to work the road construction isn't started yet but all their equipment is there so know they aren't finished yet. The blocking of one entrance is an inconvenience to shoppers and have to wonder if some just change their minds about stopping if don't see the second entrance in time. Guess the construction goes on when they can do it but does tie up traffic and makes it so slow. At least they don't usually work on the w/e.

Having the light pole obstructing view is a trade off since mom does appreciate having it light up the area in the morning when she leave for work in the dark. Mom likes to back into the driveway so easier when leaving to check for cars, bikes, pedestrians. Just have to check and double check before leaving/entering the driveway and if another person can also help look.

It is good to have the road service. The parronts have had membership for years and comes in handy and gives peace of mind.

Hmmmm, would think that bar spacing on the grate would prohibit Candida from getting her head stuck. She just must've twisted in just the correct angle to get stuck. Hopefully it never happens again.

Wonderful Milonga. Loved seeing your flock and all the elders honored. Your flock's elder pics are all awesome.

The three 'tiels all open their wings wide open for a big group 'tiel wing hug and hold on tight savoring their friendship and love. Soon they are all swaying and humming in happiness.

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

  Hi Peepers
Hope Candida is okay, that's tough getting a head stuck! Mom puts paper on top of and under the grate for Maxine, who chews it all up. Her head is too big to get stuck in the grate, though. Mom can't wait to hear details of the trip to PA!
Hope Shiloh is okay today and not suffering any after effects of the accident.
The guys finally came this morning to cut down that tree that's leaning on the house. Mom called them last night to ask for a definite date, as she doesn't want them working here while the cabinets are being installed. Anyway, the one guy apparently forgot about it, so last night he got called by his partner, came by, and said they'd be here today bright and early. Mom got up early, ready to move the car, but they just got here at 10:15 and said it was okay to leave the car in the driveway. A few minutes ago, they asked mom to move the car, and asked for a stepladder, too. Mom hopes they are working safely, she's afraid to look!
Today is a glorious looking day, nice and warm already, so guess where mom will be this afternoon? That's right! It's a pool day. We are anticipating the gathering of the elders tonight at the milonga, hope to see you there. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Our vet visit went well. We are both very healthy. Mom already knew that since she's seen nothing wrong in our eating and such.

The grand has been to the farmer's market before. It isn't very big so doesn't take long and since they got there later less crowded. Mom then took skinsis and the grand shopping since skinsis needed a few things. Then her hubby called for rescue since his car broke down. While skinsis was dealing with that the parronts babysat.

Lots of road construction around here so many lanes are blocked. At mom's work the other day one of the entrances was totally blocked by machinery while the road was being dug up.

That is awesome to get the fish for free since the price came out wrong. The grocery stores here do similar if anything rings up wrong from what the sign says. Mom's store does the same but they do also check so they can yank a sign if wrong so doesn't impact others.

Good to keep bushes and such trimmed to be able to see when backing out. The parronts don't have anything large by their driveway but they always have to be cautious since they have a light pole at one side that obviously can't be moved.

So glad Candida is okay. Imagine she was after the paper when her head got stuck. Good thing it happened when your mom was home to rescue her.

The three 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug and hold on tight for a long time basking in the warmth of shared friendship and love.

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

  Hi Peepers,
Sorry I didn't get back to you last night. I wanted to write you a blog, instead of just a C/P and never got to write to you.

I'm so sorry about the accident! How is mom's sister doing? Hope she will be okay. How is mom? I know it must be very upsetting for both of them. If she cannot write back, I understand. Please tell mom, when she is feeling better, to keep me posted and let me know how everyone is. Thanks so much.

Left a vote for you. Hope to hear from you soon!

  Hi Peepers
How's that sparrow today? Did mom find anything out about the diet mom was telling her about? Hope that the baby survives and thrives.
We are celebrating Falco's hatchday today, so come on over for the party!
The cabinets are here in the garage, they got delivered this morning. Mom is supposed to look at them within 7 days and see that they're all here with all their parts. She doesn't know how she's going to manage that! How would she know if a part was missing?
She was right in and out for her mammogram this morning, too. She got there a little early, so she was seen early. She left the building at 9:38, and her appointment was at 9:40, isn't that great?
Today looks like another great sunny warm day, so mom will be able to go to the pool, now that the cabinets are here. I hope you are having a lovely summer day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Glad you had the nice weather day. Ours was good too staying in the 70s with lots of sunshine and breezy. The warm up to the 80s is coming but we're ready.

That is good the combo of the baby cereal and the syringe helped to get the baby sparrow to eat. Will the neighbor continue?

Skinsis should not have to pay anything related to that car accident. All of it should be covered by the other party at fault. It might be just as well the car is considered totaled as never know how safe that badly damaged a car is after it is repaired. Good she has the loaner to get to work. We will be keeping our wings crossed for her, your mom and Dixie to recover completely and not have any lingering effects from the accident. Know that soreness often sets in the day afterwards. Hopefully that headache is all gone by now.

We're going to our annual check up today. Afterwards mom will take skinsis and the grand with her to the farmer's market.

  Hi Peepers
We are so sorry to hear about the accident, and hope Shiloh is okay today, as well as your mom.
Mom is happy that the next few days are supposed to be like yesterday, only warmer. Yesterday it was in the mid 70s, and today it's heading into the 80s, but it's dry for a change. We are supposed to see some dry weather for the next few days. One of Mom's hibiscus bushes bloomed yesterday, she posted the blossom on FB. 2 more bushes have buds, but no blooms yet.
Today is another good day for the pool, tomorrow mom has a mammogram scheduled, and they are delivering the cabinets, so maybe not a pool day, then Saturday if the weather holds, it's another great day for pool!
Please keep Dixie's family in your thoughts and prayers today. Hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
How awful to be in a car accident due to no fault on skinsis part. Having to go to the hospital, having a damaged vehicle, having to deal with ins, etc, etc just ins't anything anyone needs. Hopefully the car ins claim goes without a hitch since police and other services got involved. Just know it'll be an inconvenience in the short term with skinsis just going back to work.

Hopefully your mom and Dixie won't be too sore today. Often after being jarred like that the ache sets in the next day. We will be keeping our wings crossed for the entire family.

Temps here went back down to the mid 70s. So much nicer out to do any errands. The parronts did some shopping but of course mom forgot a couple things and will get 'em on her way home from work.

Don't worry about a short blog. We will catch up on all activities as time allows.

  Hi Peepers
I'm so glad Dixie is okay! I know he eats better at Nana's, wonder why? Poor dad having to stay out longer than he expected to, hope he isn't too exhausted when he gets home.
Did you get a stroller ride or window time last night? or both???
The cabinets will be delivered on Friday, but they aren't going to be installed until Aug. 10. Guess they'll live in the garage until then, there's no room upstairs for them.
Mom had a rough night again, but this time we think it was in anticipation of her eye appointment this morning. She always worries about seeing this doctor, but this month she didn't need that shot! YAY, that's great news. Of course her pupils remained dilated for hours, until about 2 today. She made it to the pool wearing some super dark wrap around glasses. She didn't get much reading done there, but did get in the water and walk around with her dark glasses on.
Hope you are having a great day and getting lots of good weather, cuddles, and love. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Temps went down here too. Still slightly humid but more like summer should be though we hope it goes away more. We had a lil earthquake Tue morning. The parronts didn't feel it but it knocked us off our perches. We're fine and went right back to sleep after mom checked on us.

When temps are hot mom never wants to use the stove let alone the oven. If there are leftovers then it gets microwaved and if not then she'll make sandwiches and salads to eat.

That is too bad for Kallie that he won't allow your mom to help with the pin feathers. We groom each other a tad and sometimes mom can get a bit of it too.

Even though the bigwigs are in the area mom figures they'd be too busy to visit any stores. She'll ask on her next day at work if they showed up anywhere.

Panther is asking all fids to select four elders. We are picking you as one of ours. Hope that is okay.

  Hi Peepers
I hope Dixie is okay today, and got over the heat stroke. It's tough to suffer from that, and scary for our folks.
Hope also that dad isn't too tired from all that line painting, he sure works hard. We'll try NTT this week, as soon as we're done blogging.
Last night mom actually got some sleep, unlike the night before when she just couldn't get comfortable. After a glorious day at the pool, we got her for the whole rest of the afternoon and evening, YAY! And we'll have her tomorrow since she has an eye appointment, and again on Thursday or Friday when the cabinets arrive. All in all, it will be a good week for us, if not for mom. Today it is sunny and bright, although the weather guessers say it's going to rain. The rest of the week is going to be beautiful as well. It figures, since mom won't be able to be at the pool for at least 2 of those days. Anyway, I hope you are having a nice summer day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
No more rain for us not that what we had could be called rain. Still hot/humid but not too high. Our breeze continues so keeps the air moving. Still, we hope it skedaddles and get back to less.

Okay, sounds like the clothes needed a lot more time to dry since didn't get it outside earlier. Even though it was apparently wayyyy too warm for poor Dixie. How scary to see him panting and think just wait for cooler or later in the day once the hottest part has past to go out.

Not much going on with us. Molting a tad but not overly beak battling, whew!

No bigwigs have turned up at mom's work as of yet.

  Hi Peepers
Your poor mom, having to help with sis's laundry as well as doing all that cooking. That was one busy day!
The Minions movie was hysterical; mom laughed nearly all the way through it. Kevin, Stuart, and Bob were cute as could be. After the movie, they all went to China Palace for dinner. When mom got home the power was out and stayed out until nearly 11 last night. Apparently the short rainstorm did some major damage to a local transformer. It did give mom a chance to use her LED lanterns, and they work just fine.
This morning at the center mom had the recovery room, which is housing mostly turtles and pigeons right now. That was fine, because she is still sore from that tumble yesterday morning.
This afternoon was a gorgeous one so mom just came back from the pool where she spent a couple of hours. She's all ours tonight after she cleans the cages. She didn't get to do that last night because of the power being out. It's tough to clean cages in the dark, she says. Anyway, we're all looking forward to a great evening with mom, and hope you are getting lots of cuddles and scritches today too. Hugs, Willie
