i happened to go into a pet store and saw this beautiful severe macaw. it wouldn't have anything to do with me and when i went near her she tried to bite me. a few days later my hubby and i were eating at a restaurant near the pet store and i persuaded my hubby to go in and see this beautiful macaw. it was love at first sight between the two and my hubby bought her on the spot. the next day after bringing her home and getting her settled into our home, Cori decided i was her mate and no one else. she allows my hubby to hold her but it is me she wants 24/7.

  Hi Cori
This morning was another bright sunny and warm day here,the highs for the day will be 81 the lows will be 64. Its 82 right now in The Mills.Mom got us all up,fed and cleaned our cages,swept the floor and then sterilized our water bottles,vacuumed the house,scrubbed two bathrooms and beat out all the area rugs and put them on the deck rails to get the air.Then Mom worked on getting some tomato and zucchini seeds in a planter to finally start her tomatoes and zucchini as it looks like she won't be having a garden this year.Not enough time,the weather hasn't been cooperative,so she's hoping these plants come up and she'll have some deck veggies.Mom is hoping to get us all outside but at almost 3:00pm its a bit hot out there,not that we're complaining about it,which we won't from the long winter we just came out of.Mom took the rest of the big flag cake skin bro brought for her birthday and put that in a smaller container as she really needs the room in her fridge.She'll take some of that to Nana on Wednesday so she can have some as she missed coming to the BBQ yesterday.There's nothing exciting going on today,its a good old boring day here and we love those days as long as Mom's home with us its a perfect day!
Mom finally took us all out on the deck for some sun and showers.We got to stay out there and join Mom and dad for dinner tonight also.Candida was being bad tonight and beating on poor Dixie and my dad was getting mad at her for doing that.He wanted Mom to bring her in the house so she could cry all by herself but Mom took Dixie out of the cage and let him sit on her lap and he got rubs and massages for quite a long time.Dixie really loved that. Dad moved the bird bath to the other side of the yard because the rhododendron bushes were growing all into it.The birds didn't take long to find it.
Oh I would be so mad also for being left in the house by myself!My Mom agrees with your sweet Momma after what happened to me last summer.Now if I want to come outside and Mom's too busy to watch me I have to stay in the deck cage.Mom's not taking anymore chances with me!Even though I never took off on her!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Loving you always and forever,sweet Cori,Love Kallie

  Hi Cori!
You and BooBoo look so hip in your shades! The rabbit picture you have below looks just like the bunny that lives outside with us. Her name is Tierra. She started out indoors but now she lives outside all the time. My parronts are always tracking her down to give her meals to her. She does know her name and sometimes comes when called or when she wants scritches!
How are you all doing about missing your doggie? We are all still missing our dear Scion. Mom still gets teary thinking about him or blogging about him. There will never be another one like your doggie or our Scion! Maybe they will meet at the RB!
We had two day of hot and sun. This afternoon it got dark and rumbled a lot but never did anything. We have had a lot of rain prior to a couple of days ago. Our dad comes home late tomorrow nite. We are all eggs cited about that! He makes our breakfast eggs better than mom! hehehe!
Big hugs to you and the rest of your family. I know you are all sad but doggie had the best life ever with you all.
Love, Squeaky

  Hi Cori and Boo boo
I know you got upset when you couldnt go out with your mom Cori but your mom just dont want you getting hurt. My mom does that to me when she is cooking or in the other rooms but that is cause they love us so much.
Today was suppose to rain but it missed us here so I got a bath and then out for a sun bath . It was very humid and warm but a bit cloudy. When I go outside for my sun bath Miss Robin comes to visit with me. She gets worms and sometimes puts them on the sidewalk. That is very nice of her but I sure don’t want to eat worms with her. Mom teases and says she thinks Miss Robin is smitten on me. I have Suzi for my girl and that is all I need cause she is one great gal. I guess Miss Robin has babies in the big tree in the yard and maybe she feels a bit scared of me out there so close. “A friend is like a four leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have.” Left a vote for you.

  Hi Cori
Poor you, stuck in the house while Booboo got out.
Mom has most of the cabinets done now, just 3 more to go. She's waiting until Wed. when her cleaning woman comes with some sturdy boxes for the dishes, pots and pans, and some canned goods. They can finish the job together.
Today mom was in the RVS room, which is much more sparsely populated than it was last week! They have moved a bunch of raccoons and skunks outside to finish growing up. That meant a huge disinfection procedure today, though, cages, floors, walls, carriers, and anything else in there. There are still about 10 raccoons and 10 skunks in there, too, so mom disinfected their cages as well. It was raining when she got home, so she decided to shower and get online. Of course, now the sun is out! She won't go to the pool, though, as she has showered and washed her hair, and doesn't want to repeat the shampoo today.
I hope you are getting some great weather, cuddles, and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

  Hey Cori and BooBoo
Sugar tells the second part of her story...Quill work woman...

The leader of the Buffalo Nation calls Quill work Woman and her Four brothers out !!!
The four brothers step out of their lodge with Quill Work Woman standing behind them...

The leader of the buffalo Nation says I have been watching your sister and I love her. I want to marry her and make her part of my buffalo Nation... May I please marry her my two legged brothers ???

Hulk says no you cant marry our sister, Cookie say's she belongs to the Northern Cheyenne Nation,Tweety say's she doesn't want to marry you and Peppi says please go away now.

The Leader of the buffalo nation is mad !!! He says how dare you speak to me that way !!!
I will be back in the Spring time and ask her again...
The buffalo runs off angry...

After the winter has passed and Spring comes in Quill Work Woman and her four brothers pack their belongings and plan to head back home to the Northern Cheyenne Nation...

As they are packing they hear the loud rumbling of buffalo hooves coming towards them.
The leader of the buffalo Nation calls out to Quill Woman and her four brothers...
He say's I'm hear once again to ask for your sisters hand in marriage my two legged brothers...
Cookie says no you can't marry our sister !!!

The Buffalo nation leader say's I'll be back to stomp you down into the earth and kill all of you.

Quill Work woman goes into the lodge and cuts a hole in the back of their lodge...
Suddenly they can hear thousands of Buffalo running towards them.
They all climb out of the hole in their lodge and Peppi grabs his sacred bow and arrow as he climbs out.
Soon as they get out of their lodge the buffalo stampede through their lodge and crush it...

With no where to go they run towards a big tree and start climbing up...
The Leader of the buffalo nation starts to charge the tree trunk to knock it down !!!

Part three of the story will continue tomorrow.
Can anyone guess what happens next ???

Thank you for your votes !!!
Love Panther.

  Oh Cori,
I'm sorry you didn't get a chance to go outside today.

Maybe tomorrow ?

After the fireworks and spooky stories have been told every birdie sleeps with one eye open just in case. :)

The next morning everyone wakes up to the smell of blueberry pancakes and raspberry waffles as dad has been cooking early and the aroma is just tasty. :)

As they wake up one by one makes their way to the food tent where they see the pancakes and waffles and fresh fruit medley mom has prepared.

Fresh papaya, pineapple, apples, and grapes just to mention a few.

There's also orange juice, guava, lilikoi and fruit punch and bottled water too.

Everyone digs in and makes their plates of a great breakfast.

After breakfast it's another sunny day at the beach till its time for everyone to head home.

Mom packs everyone a goodie bag of Mac nuts and pineapple cake.

What a treat! :)

Thank you all for joining us on this great holiday weekend. :)

That just doesn't seem fair that you didn't get to go outside too. Was it because you tried to fly off the railing yesterday?
We had sun and hot today ... in the 80's! It felt like summer. The parronts were busy on the golf course so, I had a good nap. Looks like we might get to 80 on Monday. Is summer really here or is it a tease?

Oh I sure am glad your not hurt. I can just imagine how upset y our mom was cause my mom panics when she thinks I might be hurt too!
I can’t tell time but I sure know when my light is soon going off and its bed time. If mom doesn’t move fast enough I start to complain so she notices its my bed time and I am ready for bed. Last night I was all covered up for the night and then heard lots of boomers but didn’t say anything and kept quiet but it was interfering with my beauty sleep. Then silly mom got the idea of uncovering me to show me the pretty fireworks out the window. I wasn’t about to step up or come out so I didn’t get to see them but I heard the noise and think that was enough.

  HELLO FROM LITTLE MISS LUCY
Hi Cori,
I'm so glad that you didn't get hurt when you fell off the porch. That must have scared you though. This was a pretty relaxing day. We had lots of lovely sunshine, but not hot weather, just nice and warm. Mommy and Daddy went to church and then later after they got home Daddy took a nap while Mommy went to visit a friend who was in a nursing facility. We birdies just hung out on the porch all day watching the geese and swans on the lake and playing with our toys. I’m always extremely happy to see Mommy when she comes home. I give her a warm and wonderful greeting and don’t leave her shoulder after that until she makes my veggies and tucks me into my little bed. I hope you had a lovely day, too.
Lots of Love and Hugs from Little Miss Lucy♥

Oh Cori that would've scared my Mom too,its good that you were still attached to the leash though,not like I did,I got out of my leash and just took off from across the deck to the yard to my Mom.That gave her a heart attack for sure. Its a good thing that I came to her and never flew off down the street!I'm so glad that you didn't get hurt though,that would've been awful.Mom makes sure that I'm in my deck cage now so I can't pull anything like that on her again!
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day being 79,the lows will be 63. Its 73 right now at 6:34pm.Mom and dad got up early and left for church and then when they came back we were all screaming for them as they left us with our curtains closed and not fed.Mom fed us opened our curtains and cleaned out our cages,while we were eating she stripped the bed and did all the laundry and got everything hung out on the line.As she was walking out back to hang the clothes out,skin sis came over.After Mom got the laundry out,she went to the freezers and pulled out some hamburgers,hot dogs,pork steaks,steak and Italian sausages for the grill.She made a salad with blueberries,grapes,tomatoes and lettuce.Dad worked on getting the grill out and ready and then skin bro called Mom and wanted to know when the BBQ would be,so she told him around 2:00pm.She got the meat in a marinade and all the rolls and relishes,ketchup,mustard etc on the tray and then went and made dad sandwiches for the week for work,got his coffee maker ready to go and Instant breakfast set up.Then she put us all in our deck cages and got us all out on the deck to get some sunshine and showers,it was a really nice hot day here for a change.Got up to 81.While Mom was waiting for the grill to get ready to put the food on skin sis painted Mom's nails for her,she hasn't had painted nails in years.Nana was supposed to come but she wasn't feeling well so she called to tell Mom she was staying home.Skin bro came shortly after as Mom was starting to grill everything and he brought a key lime pie with him for dessert.After everyone was done eating,Mom cleared everything up,skin sis helped with the dishes and then Mom served the key lime pie and some of that flag cake skin bro had brought for her birthday.Mom cleaned up the dishes and put all the left overs away that skin sis didn't take home with her and skin sis helped bring in the condiments and put them away while Mom was washing dishes etc.Then the skin sibs and Mom sat for a while on the deck with us until skin sis left at around 4:00pm,Mom stayed out with skin bro until he left an hour later.When skin bro left,Mom took us all inside to have one more snack while she finished with the clean up and then she went out back and brought all the laundry in,folded it and put it all away,then she made up the bed and took a much needed shower.Mom is so tired tonight.

Sugar finishes her first story...
Tweety and Cookie are excited about the story and cheer Sugar on.
Hulk and Peppi ask Sugar can you tell us another story ??? BooBoo and Cori give Sugar a gift and she accepts...


*** QUILL WORK WOMAN***
There was a beautiful girl who was blessed with the gift of making beautiful quill work. She was also blessed spiritually having dreams and visions...One morning she got up and told her mother that she had a dream of having four brothers who are waiting for her...She made beautiful War Shirts for each one of them and decorated the war shirts with quills...

Quill work woman packed the War shirts and her belongings and gave her mother a kiss. She said I'm going to find my four brothers.
Off she walked into the snow. She walked for a hundred
miles...
She found a big lodge in the snow and went inside. Not being able to find her brothers. She unpacked the War shirts and waited...
Not long after a young warrior who was 8 years old his name is Peppi came in the lodge. He was happy to see her and said sister I have been waiting for you. I called you in your dreams...Quill work woman gave him his war shirt and it fit him perfect. He then told her he is a spiritual leader and carries the sacred bow and arrow...
A while later her other three brothers came in and asked Peppi who is this ??? Peppi said this our sister I called upon...
Quill work woman gave her other three brothers Hulk, Tweety and Cookie their war shirts. They fit each brother perfect.

Quill work woman and her brothers were so happy and she cooked for them and took good care of them. The brothers always liked to joke around and Hulk said I thought all big sisters that could cook are fat and ugly !!! Tweety and Cookie said our big sister is fine !!!

One day the four brothers went out to hunt for food while Quill work woman stayed home and cleaned up their lodge...
Suddenly she heard a loud sound of thunder and the ground was shaking. A buffalo stuck his head in her lodge and said Quill work woman our leader is in love with you and wants to marry you and become part of our buffalo nation !!! Quill work woman said no I am happy here with my brothers. The buffalo ran off to tell his leader.

Later that night the four brothers brought back food to prepare.
They heard the earth rumbling and then the leader of the buffalo nation was calling to them...

Story to be continued tomorrow.
Can you guess what happens next ???

Thank you for your votes
Love

  Hi Cori
Glad you're OK. I bet that really scared your mom.

Well, I didn't get a sunbath this morning, because it was too cloudy when Mom went to the gym. And when she got home again it was too hot. Now yesterday I made it clear I was ready to go out for my sunbath at 7:30PM, and my mom informed me there wasn't any sun. Can that be right? Does the sun actually disappear?

Anyway Mom went to the gym, and this is the first day of that new class UJAM which replaced Mom's beloved zumba. In her opinion it is a rip off of zumba, but not as good. She did promise the fitness director she would try it at least two or three times before judging, so she will do that. However she definitely wants zumba back, and they can just put UJAM before or after it. Mom thinks that is reasonable, but I am thinking if she really decides she doesn't like UJAM maybe she will stay home on Sundays. I would like that.

Today is Dad's birthday, and Mom wanted to take him out to dinner since their favorite pizza place closed down. He won't go. He really doesn't like restaurants all that much, and he thinks birthdays are no big deal. So she is going to take him to Subway, which works for me because I will get to share my mom's sandwich. Maybe Dad is good for something after all.

How about Panther's BOTM campaign? It sure is eggciting and interesting. I can't wait to see who makes it on his council of elders.

Our silly moms should KNOW we will try to get to them. I've landed in a few messes when my mom has forgotten that rule! Fortunately I usually like being on my cage, so I'm mostly secure there. BUT every once in a while I do try flying without all my feathers plus wearing the STOOPID collar.
Good you did get some outside time! Did you see anything of interest? I've not wanted to see outside for a few days now.

Aw, what a sweet pic of Cookie. There are mulberries at the center, and we race to pick them for the patients before they are all gone. Same with the raspberries there.
I hope you had a safe and fun Independence Day. Mom's daughter had a fine cookout with ribs, chicken, and kielbassa, along with salads and desserts. Mom's deviled eggs went over well.
Today is a sunny and warm day, but with low humidity so far, at least. Looks like the perfect pool day. Mom will probably nap there, since there were (illegal) firecrackers going off here well after midnight last night. Hope you have a wonderful summer day full of love and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Oh wow, that was scary. I'm glad that you are ok. Sounds like it was a short lease issue. Good thing to let mom know you want to be closer to her.
We have mom and baby turkeys all around us. You really have to watch the road for them, deer etc.
Another nice day up here for the 4th. My parronts went to town to watch the parade. Then we had lunch together. We did have a cook-out for dinner on the patio. The chipmunks were eating near our table so, I guess we had company. Hope your 4th was greyt!

  Hi Cori,
They reach the beach and find the perfect place to set up their tents and canopy right under the big tree.

From here everyone can perch in the tree or sit on the sandy beach and watch the fireworks go off tonight. We've got the perfect view. :)

Mom and pop unload and set up the buffet table for after everyone swims and gets hungry.

Mom has the veggies and assorted fruits of apples, grapes, kiwi, oranges and guava for everyone to eat. It's all chopped up and ready to eat in bite size fruits and veggies.

Everyone is in the water, Pookie and Cookie are on their boogie boards and Kacey and Laka are on their whale and ducky floaties joined by SweetPepper and Kiddo playing Marco Polo with Dixie and his flock.

The water is nice and cool as its a nice and hot sunny 4th of July holiday.

Dad gets the wood ready for the Bon fire for tonight before the fireworks starts so that everyone can eat their hot dogs and marshmallows on a stick.

Dad is also cooking some grilled asparagus and peppers and tomatoes on the grill. A variety snack for everyone to enjoy.

If they're not in the water some birdies are eating in the tent as everyone takes turns from eating and playing in the water to Candida and Kallie making a giant sand castle.

As it gets dark everyone dries off the water and grabs a plate of goody snacks. We've got grilled veggies to grilled hot dogs and the fruits and veggies are cool as they are on ice from the cooler. There's guava, orange, apple and lilikoi juice in the cooler along with bottled water as we don't want anyone getting dehydrated as it was a hot day.

Dad gets the Bon fire going and everyone takes a seat on the logs and cooks their hot dog or marshmallow on a stick as the fire works start going off.

Everyone oooohs and ahhhhhs as the sky is brightly colored and they have the happy face one too says Dixie, my favorite. :)

After the fireworks they all gather for some of Papa Peters spooky stories.

What a great 4th of July for everyone to enjoy.

Then mom announces don't forget there's dessert of Sweetpeppers sweets and also brownies and pineapple cake too.

Everyone runs to get dessert before the spooky story starts.

Love, hugs and a vote.

  Hey Cori and BooBoo
Tweety,Cookie,Hulk,Peppi,Cori and BooBoo go to Sugar the story tellers lodge. They give her a gift and she tells them a story...

***THE MOON AND THE COYOTE****
There was a very lonely coyote,She would go to the hills every full moon and talk to the moon. She fell in love with the moon...
One night she went to the hills and told the moon I love you. You are so beautiful !!! She hung her head and walked away. Suddenly she heard a soft voice say I love you too coyote...She turned around and the moon was standing behind her.
The moon and the coyote got married and had a beautiful son the color of his father...
They were so happy together !!!

One night a band of Warriors got lost trying to find their way home. They called on the creator to guide them home.The creator was angry !!! Where is the moon he asked ??? The Warriors told him we don't know.

The creator found the moon and the coyote and he said moon you are to stay where I put you. The creator raised his arms and the moon went back into the sky never to come down again.
The coyote and her son would go to the hill and howl to the full
moon to come back to them out of sorrow. All of her grand children and great,great grand children and the upcoming generations would howl at the full moon forever.
That is why the coyote howls at the moon...

Happy 4th of July
Love
Panther

  Happy Birthday, America!!
Hi Cori,

Sorry to hear the news about doggie, but I think he was suffering and is out of pain now. I guess your dad is a basket case right now.

Well, you will all be glad to hear that I decided I wanted a sunbath yesterday afternoon, and it actually had cooled off enough (80 @ 4PM) that Mom decided we could go out there. Dad thought we were crazy, and he claims I have Mom trained. (hmmm) Well, I once again refused to get in the outside carrier this morning, and I actually teased Mom by landing on it twice while she was trying to coax me in there. As soon as she would come over and say "climb in" I would fly away! Wonder if I can get her to take me out this afternoon again? It is 85 out there right now, so it just might be tolerable in a couple of hours.

Mom and Dad went on their normal Saturday grocery run this morning thinking everyone would have done their holiday shopping yesterday. They were wrong. It wasn't too bad though. And one lady walked up to the lobster tank which was well-stocked with live lobsters, summoned (yes, I said summoned) the butcher and said "I'll take them all!" Dad said there were about 15 or 16 lobsters in there for the holiday weekend, and they were $19.99/lb!! And most of them were big guys. There was probably over 25 pounds of lobster in there, and she really did take them all. Must be nice to be that rich!

Have your read Panther's story for today yet? It is so romantic and touching. I think his campaign is going to be one of the best yet!!

  Hi Cori
Oh don't you just love the natural showers that fall from the skies?Those wild raspberries sound so good too!
HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY EVERYONE AND EVERY BIRDIE!
Today is a dull sunless kind of on the cool side day here with the highs for the day of 70 and the lows of 58 and its 70 right now and looking more and more like rain.Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and room and then she got dad's things ready for him to go to work this afternoon for the parade.Mom did some chores and cleaned up more clutter and is going to vacuum the house later on when she gets done with some dusting.We won't be getting outside today because its just not warm enough and its looking like rain right now.Skin sis called Mom and wants to come over tonight for dinner,she'll bring a pizza,it sounds like she wants to come over here more often lately.Mom is finally getting a quiet day with not much running around to do.She's so glad that she doesn't have to go out today.Tomorrow she's planning on having a BBQ if the weather cooperates and won't rain like it has been the last six Sunday's.We are hoping to join them all on the deck for the BBQ tomorrow!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for my sweet Cori!Loving you always and forever,Kallie

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

  Hi Cori
So you like those natural showers? I think I prefer my sink where I have some control.
A robin came to the bird bath and took a BATH in it while it was raining, mom thought it quite funny.
This year, I haven't wanted any of the raspberries. I MIGHT like a bit of toast with the jam tho'.

  Hello Cori~
I hope you are having a good day! You don't worry about a thing! We know exactly what you are going through. Mom found all of Mandy's bandanas yesterday! Mandy loved having a bandana on when she went out. Her flannel hoodie was hanging in the closet too. Mom will keep the bandanas but donate the hoodie.
Mandy was creamated also and her ashes were spread out at Point Defiance by the zoo.
We know it will get better but we just don't know when!
Keeping you in our prayers!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  HAPPY 4TH OF JULY FROM LITTLE MISS LUCY
Hi Cori,
Those wild raspberries sound delicious. My Daddy picked some from the woods next door to us about a week ago. They were very small, but bursting with so much flavor!

We think that they were killed by another animal. They roost in a pretty remote spot for anyone to get to, but we do have some very large snapping turtles in our little lake. Once my Daddy saw one take a full grown Canada goose down. Terrible! We also have a lot of hawks and a pair of golden eagles that live in the woods near us.

We don't have any plans for today, just vegging at home, as usual. It's a really pretty day today. Mommy should go out and work in the garden for a bit. I think she said that the weeds are really growing and need pulling. She made us all scrambled eggs this morning for breakfast. Yummm! We talked to Uncle Chuck Dallas this morning, too, which was great! He's one of our favorite people.
Lots of Love and Hugs from Little Miss Lucy♥

  Hi Cori
I bet those raspberries tasted yummy! Do you know what color ripe currants are? We have some in the yard, but mom isn't sure when to pick them.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, USA!
We got rain overnight, and this morning it was really overcast when mom walked the dogs. She came home, made the deviled eggs, came up here to the computer, and it's now getting sunny! That's great, it looks like a pool day after all. After the pool she is going to her daughter's for a cookout, then back with us. No fireworks for us, Daisy will freak out if she's here alone and hears those loud noises. Hope you have a great day for your 4th of July plans, and that all goes well. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.

  Hi Cori
Sadness takes over the Squakville area of the sunshine state. Aunt Deb hits the road about 7 AM to head north to Indiana. But we will see her again at Christmas time which is so much fun. I have super news, but it's a secret....

Come visit me, JeTTa.

  Hi Cori
You are welcome, wanted to let you know how sorry we were to hear of your loss. What a beautiful doggie!
Thanks, that was a fast pic and mom wanted something festive.
I think we might get rain on Sunday night.
We had another nice day. Looks like the parronts will go to town for the parade and craft show on Saturday. Then, I'll get to spend time with them on the patio for a cook-out. Tonight, there are way too many loud booms and I don't like it!
Happy 4th of July
Hugs
Chyna
