  Hi Cori
Well, Mom got me outside for my sunbath today at 9:45, and even though the weather geeks are claiming it is a high of only 75 today we were quite comfy out there. Mom thinks it is a lot closer to 80 for a high.

Then Mom ran off to the gym for zumba. She always wears pink on Tuesday, because her trainer, Becky, hates pink and Mom doesn't work out with her on Tuesdays. However she then made a point of finding Becky and making her look at her pink shirt and socks. Mom is verrry mean! She stopped at the store on the way home to drop off a script and pick up some more frozen lunches. She got a Butternut Squash ravioli for our lunch today which they have been out of for a while, which made me mad because it is one of my favorites. All sorts of goodies for a birdie to love in there.

And now we are blogging. I was sitting quietly on Mom's knee, but now I am on the desk chewing on the ball of string sitting there. Since it is for making birdie toys, Mom decided that is acceptable behavior. Yippee!

Don't forget today is the last day to vote for our dear little BooBoo for BOTM, although between you and me I am sure she has won. What a wonderful and educational campaign she has run. Next up is Mikey D, and his campaign looks pretty eggciting. April will be another greyt month here on the BC.

  Hey Cori,
I just love that new picture of you and BooBoo hiding. That's so cute! :)

Yes I thought Angel Mario's celebration of Life service went well and gave his flock some closure. It's nice to see how many friends he had and with all the beautiful flowers too.

Thanks for helping with the set up of the Ballroom for Angel Mario's celebration of life.

I thought it went well, not a dry eye in the room.

It's a good thing I put the little Kleenex boxes on each pew perch.

Just about every birdie used one. I had mine under my wing so no one could see it.

I think it helped Angel Mario's flock to see just how many birdies cared for him.

Just like my fister Angel Sallykins. :)

Thanks again for all your help and love and support.

Your just the greatest gal! Pookie gives her a hug and kiss. :)

Here's a vote for you.

Love,

Sneaky Pookie

This morning was another dark dismal day with our temperatures highs being 42 and the lows being 33.Right now its 37 and fairly cold.Skin bro came and picked Mom up at around 8:00am this morning.So Mom really had no time to do much of anything except to clean all our cages quickly and feed us all.Then she collected the trash and recyclables and skin bro loaded them in his car while she got Dixie in his carrier and wrapped him with a blanket.When they got to Nana's Mom got Dixie settled in his cage there and set his food bowl down for him and he immediately started eating then skin bro and Mom collected Nana's trash and recyclables and they loaded them in Nana's car and they went to the dump,when they came back the VNA came to work out with Nana.The VNA had Nana walking over and over around her house with a cane.They are trying to get her out of the walker.But she is not to use the cane when the VNA is not there and she is not to go outside yet as the ground is too uneven and Nana promises she isn't going to try as she doesn't want land back in the hospital or rehab again!Mom and Nana were supposed to try and make at least one loaf of Easter Bread for Easter but that never happened so if Mom makes it over to Nana's earlier tomorrow they can start it then,Nana will mix all the ingredients and Mom will do the kneading.Then skin bro is going to take Mom grocery shopping at Market Basket to pick up some things for Easter dinner.They both have no idea what they will have for Easter dinner this year as Nana isn't feeling well with her broken hip,Nana doesn't know if they can make ravioli's.Mom said she wouldn't mind trying to make them as she's been helping make them for a while now.After they left Nana's skin bro drove Mom into Falmouth and he bought Mom and himself a medium blizzard at DQ and then he took Mom to the Dollar Tree to get our dad some funnels that he needed.Then he took Mom home and it started to rain again and got dark as night.When Mom got home she made dinner for my dad,cleaned all our cages and dad had already given us our snack and put our light on for us and filled our humidifier.
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

  Hello Cori~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been too long since I got blogs out to every bird and I wish I had something exciting to share but it's been rather dull around here.
Dad is home for the day since he had to go to his doctor. Just the usual 6 month check up because of the cholesterol medicine he takes. You would think the cat would be all over him since he doesn't see him much but Merlin is still following mom everywhere. She is the one who feeds us so I can't blame him for sticking close by! You wouldn't want to miss a snack!
I will be having "turtle tank" cleaning duties once mom gets back from dropping Ian off at work. He wasn't suppose to work today but someone called out again! Ian picks up most of his hours that way!
I have the very important job of watching George and Gracie while mom washes the tank. They go into a little box which mom calls there summer home! I watch to make sure they don't escape! Gracie is always wanting to get out although I have no idea where she thinks she is going to go. It's a turtle thing I guess!
I hope your day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Cori
I must admit I do like Mondays. Not only is it not a gym day for Mom, but Dad is off to work and not competing with my mom time. The only down side is that it is trash day. However Mom got me out for my sunbath at 10:30, and we timed it just right. Not a single truck came by while we were out there, although one did rumble past the house right after we came inside.

Then Mom helped her friend, Judy, edit another paper. Now Judy is getting her Masters in Poli Sci so she can teach at the Community College level. This paper was on the erosion of voter turn out over the past 20 years. Mom and Dad vote in every single election, whether it is a major one or just a local. She asked me to take this moment to remind everybirdy's parronts that voting is not just a right, but also a privilege that should not be shirked. If you don't like the way an election turned out, but you didn't vote...shame on you!

That said, I would like to comment on the lovely lunch Mom and I just shared. (Yes! She remembered to eat!) It was one of her frozen lunches, Basil Chicken and Pasta. Needless to say my favorite part is the pasta, and I have to admit I got more than my share. Mom is very generous with the stuff, because she knows how much I like it.

And now I am sitting on her knee dictating my blogs. It looked dicey for a bit, because she has her kindle charging on the desk, and I really wanted to chew on it. However I settled down, so it looks like I am good for the duration. How about that!

  Hi Cori
That was a beautiful service for Angel Mario yesterday. What a great way to celebrate his life. We were there, but silent, as mom was working. On Willie's page are 2 pics of what she was doing yesterday. One of them shows where she was set up, right by the camel driver and lions, and the other shows what she had out on the cart: lion pelt, cheetah pelt, sable horn covering, giraffe ankle bone, an impala skull, a gorilla skull, and a warthog skull. The pelts were new, and got a lot of attention. It was a good afternoon for talking to folks.
Today at the center, mom did the RVS room again, and was supposed to feed the bats. When she got to the treatment room, Jess (staff) had already fed 4 of them, and cleaned their terrarium. She was feeding one of the baby squirrels, and invited mom to feed the other one. Mom gladly did that! She hasn't fed babies for nearly a year, so it was a nice change.
Speaking of squirrels, when mom walked the dogs this morning, there was a squirrel near the bird feeders in front of the house. It ran when it saw mom and the girls, and it ran right into the hide box that mom brought home and got nailed up last week, so it was one of the new kids! Mom was happy to see that. She got more squirrel mix while she was at the center, as things aren't really growing outside yet. So they will have food for at least another week.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Cori,
Yes it sure was a nice service for Angel Mario and I think it helped his flock by seeing all his friends come by to pay their respect for him.

It was a rainy rainy day today. Mom was upset cause it started to sun, then it rained so she had to run outside and hang all the laundry underneath.

There isn't that much room so mom had to squish everything together.

Hope you guys get some sunny days soon.

Love, hugs and a vote.

  Hi Cori
A few birdies have commented on my mom's fight over getting the hospital bill from last August paid by the insurance co, and Mom would like for me to make it clear that the villain in this scenario is the hospital not Blue Cross. B.C. has asked the hospital for the records of the procedure since they used an invalid code in their billing for several months now. Apparently they finally received all 125 pages of it, and hopefully Mom's claim will finally be processed. This hospital is always a problem, and Mom has sworn to never have anything done there ever again. Of course, hopefully she won't need another hospital stay at all.

I hope everybirdy had a good time at the milonga last night. I think it went quite well, and the awards presentation was a lot of fun for me. I just love giving out prizes to all my friends and buddies. And the food, drinks and music was all terrific. How about that corned beef by Lizzie, and I loved Ms BB's green ice cubes. However when Chyna sang Danny Boy it brought down the house.

Mom went to the gym this morning, and although she came home very sweaty she took me out for my sunbath first thing because the temp was just right if we sat next to the shade of the gardenia tree. There was a good breeze blowing, so I didn't need to worry if she was extra stinky. She did take a shower as soon as we came in though. With a high of 82, if was nice enough. Tomorrow they are calling for 83 degrees, and Mom doesn't go to the gym on Mondays so we will get out early. However those trash trucks will be rumbling by, so Mom might have to put my outside cage in her lap a time or two. It's pretty big, so it really fills up the chair. Makes me a lot more comfortable when those noise machines roar by though.

Haha, the creationists believe that people actually did ride them, can you imagine? Mom is glad that they were long extinct (except for our line, of course) millions of years before there were people.
We want to thank everyone who hosted and worked hard for another successful milonga. Kiddo, Taz, Sam, Lizzie, and everyone else, including the dancing leprechauns, made it a great event. Congrats to all the picture winners, too. It was tough to vote this time, all the pics were outstanding.
Yesterday was a busy one for mom, and today looks to be a bit better. She is working at the museum from 1 to 4 on the African wildlife cart. It should be interesting, they got the giraffe ankle bone (cannon bone) back on the cart, and added a lion and cheetah pelt. There are also some cool skulls there to put out, a gorilla, a horn from a sable, and a few other things. It should be a fun afternoon.
After mom gets home, she's ours for the evening. It's still cold here, so I know mom will come straight home to be with us. Of course, she'll clean cages first, but then she's ours! I hope you are having a terrific day, getting lots of cuddles, scritches, and maybe even an extra treat. Hugs, Falco

Today mom got some bad news. Quincy and Danny, the bob white quail who lived at the center, got put down yesterday. It's a shame, but both boys were close to 9 years old! In the wild, they live for a year or 2, and in captivity they can survive to 5, so we were lucky to have the boys for nearly 9 years. Mom cried, of course, but she realized a few months ago that their time was short.
In other news, mom attended a mammal handling class today, and at the end, they said to take mammals off site the volunteer first had to go with staff a time or 2. Mom asked if that was necessary for her, since she's been doing that for 13 years! They told her no, they would grandfather her in, haha.
Then she worked at the museum for the Preservation Fair today. She worked at a table that showed the effects of things like water, abrasion, light, and even using the wrong kind of pen could damage artifacts, prints, photos, etc. Did you know that Sharpies are not permanent, and can cause damage to your CDs? Mom found that out today. She writes on all the CDs she burns, and uses a sharpie. Guess that stops today.
I hope you are having a great evening. We'll talk more tomorrow. Hugs to you, Falco

I was gonna do that but Spot had already put down 4 pm on the calender page.

Thank you Sugar for putting Mario's Celebration of life on the calendar page for all to view.

This way every birdie can come and join in.

I guess Spot knew the Ballroom page number, that's good. :)

Since he said it starts at 4 pm EST I'll try to set up early so that if some birdies can only come in the morning it will be okay. I'll be there with my flock to welcome them. :)

Here's a vote for you my sweet friend !

Well, it is pretty darned hot here. They were calling for a high of 89 today, but it is 90 out there right now. Looks like they missed it again. Mom took me out for my sunbath as soon as she got home from zumba a few minutes after noon, and it was so warm she sat in the shade and put my outdoor carrier in partial shade. So I still got my sun, but it wasn't nearly as hot as in the full sun.

Mom is in another battle over insurance and medical bill, only this time it is the hospital's fault and Anthem Blue Cross has been struggling with them since Mom's surgery last August! She spoke to a very nice young lady a few minutes ago, and they finally received the records (125 pages!) of the procedure they have been requesting since the whole thing started. Hopefully this time it will be resolved.

Meanwhile I am perched on my mom's knee dictating my blogs. Since she is wearing shorts, she is hoping I will not have an accident. She had better hope I don't get adventurous and climb all over her like I did during yesterday's blogging...Whoops! Here I go!!

  Hi Cori
The spinosaurus pics are on my page, finally.
It was snowing when mom left the center today! Where is spring??? She had the bunny room, but there was only one bunny in there, so it was quick. She also cleaned the main aviary and the rolling aviary with the doves in. There were 5 doves and 13 pigeons today! She got the areas cleaned, got all the birds and the bunny fed, then went in the kitchen and did dishes for about 45 minutes, until her hands got too cold and she had to take a break. The gas guys are still up there digging, so maybe some time soon there will be gas again. The dryer turned out to be gas, so the interns are taking laundry to the shelter or to a local laundromat to clean. It's pretty much a full carload when they go, too.
Tonight is the last night of the fish fry at a local church where mom goes every Friday in Lent for dinner for her and Jeff, our neighbor. Mom told him to savor it tonight, as it will be a year before he tastes anything this good again.
I hope you are having a good day, getting spring like weather, and of course, enjoying cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

But I'm afraid it might have to be next week Sunday as there's not enough time this week to spread the word and set up the decorations and stuff. Well need more time, plus the Milonga is Saturday so a lot of the birdies might be hung over or too tired.

I think it would be best next Sunday that would give us more time to prepare.

What do you think?

Let me know as I'm still waiting to hear from King Flitzer too.

I thank you in advance for helping and participating with the preparations for Angel Mario's Celebration of Life party.

I think he and his flock will be happy with our celebration plans.

Here's a vote for you.

Love & hugs,

Pookie and the gang

  Hey Cori,
I need your help buddy. I've asked King Flitzer if we could use the Castle grounds to hold a Celebration of Life in Little Mario Adlers name.

He says okay so I will need some help with the decorating.

Can you and your flock give us a wing?

I'm gonna be asking more friends for help in making this a nice memorial for Mario Adler, Dixie's lil frother.

Pookie bows and says the Castle Ballroom it is!

Can you help spread the word for us?

Mom only has her phone thingy and its a little slow at times.

I'd really appreciate all the help we can get.

Mario was a sweet sweet little guy and he will be sorely missed, especially by me and my flock.

I'll gather some friends and well decorate the ballroom.

Thank you so much again for all your help and for letting us use the Castle Ballroom.

We just hafta spread the word so that no one gets left out.

Sending big birdie hugs and a vote.

We want to hold it this coming Sunday.

Love,

Pookie, Laka Aolani and Angel Sallykins

  Hi Cori
Well, today is going to be one great day for us birdies, after mom gets done scrubbing the cages, that is. She has a few errands, but they won't take long, and the day is ours! We love days like this, they are rare this time of year. The museum will be super busy from after Easter until mid June, so this may be our last whole day for awhile.
I hope you are having a fun day today, getting some springlike weather, and of course, lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

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

  Hey Cori,
Yes I was preening myself when mom took off the collar but I kept picking at my boo boo so she put the collar back on me. :(

She said I can't be trusted. Well I say hmfff!!!

Hope your day was better than mine.

Here's a vote for you.

Love & hugs,

Pookie

HEY CORI, SO GLAD TO HEAR THAT YOU ARE OKAY AFTER THE GUM CHEWING INCIDENT. MAYBE STICK TO CHEWING THE BOX AND NOT THE GUM ITSELF OR MOM WILL NEED TO REMEMBER TO KEEP HER PURSE CLOSED AND AWAY FROM PRYING BEAKS.

HOPE YOU ARE HAVING A DECENT DAY. STILL ON THE COOLER SIDE HERE. ALL THE SNOW WAS WASHED AWAY BY THE RAIN LAST NIGHT.

  Hi Cori
Mom and all of us can't thank you enough for all the condolences you send us.The hurt and pain that's in Mom's heart and our quietness all day made it even harder for her to deal with his passing,our baby fister Candida kept wailing these long loud mournful sounds for most of the morning while Mom cleaned out Mario's cage,she finally had to remove it from our room because I wouldn't leave the cage alone.When they got back from nana's today,we were very quiet and didn't say a word like we usually yell out when they come through the door,Mom was scared and ran directly to our room to make sure we were all right,we were,just missing Mario. Loving you always and forever,sweet Cori,Love Kallie

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

  Hey Cori,
Mom let me preen today but I kept going to pick at my Boo boo so mom put the poncho back on me.

But hey I tried my bestest not to pick my boo boo. I was just trying to preen my poor poor feathers that haven't gotten any attention since I had the surgery. Shish, give me a break!

So that was my day today, only partially preened. Maybe mom will let me preen myself again tomorrow then I can finish the other half of my body? I wonder? :)

Here's a vote for you, hope you had a great big birdie day. :)

Love & hugs,

The half preened Pookie

  Hi Cori
Hah! I got my sunbath yesterday after all!! After Mom got finished with my blogging at 2PM, we went back into my room and I flew right on to my outside carrier and climbed in and chirped at Mom. So she took me outside, and it was just barely still warm enough. However we got a good 25 minutes before Mom thought it was cooling down too much. Then today we got out there at 11 (no fooling around from me today!). Good thing we got out early too, because it was pretty darned warm. It was forecasted for 84 degrees today, and Mom thinks it may have even been warmer. Now tomorrow they are saying 88, which is better than the 90 they were predicting. We will still get out early though.

Mom goes to the gym from 4-6 today, so she is spending as much time as possible with me before then. She is buried in her kindle when we are in my room, but all I have to do is land on her shoulder and she gives me all of her attention.

We had the Methi Malai lunch today, and Mom's curiosity finally got the best of her and she googled it. It is an Indian dish, which didn't surprise her. I love the kidney beans, but I insisted on grabbing one before Mom blew on it to cool it down for me. Boy, did I drop that quickly! Once it cooled off, Mom gave it back to me and cooled off a couple more. Yum!!

  Hi Cori
Glad there were no ill effects. You probably just chewed up the paper and not the gum itself.
Last night's dinner with Gene was a success, he's actually a pretty good cook. Mom also loved spending time with her niece and nephew and their mom, Aunt Ginny. The food and conversation were both quite good, and champagne never hurts anything, either.
Mom is back! She did a tour with preK kids this morning, which they had scheduled for an hour. She wishes the visitor service people would stick to 45 minutes for little kiddies. It's too hard to keep their attention for an hour. After the tour, mom stopped at Trader Joe's for a few things, but now she's back and ours for the rest of the day. We know she's planning to read a few chapters in her book, but other than that, I think we will be getting all the attention we so richly deserve. I hope you are having a good day, getting some spring like weather (It's up to 50 today here), and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

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