New Private Bird Club Website Sign Up & Info
Hi Every birdie! Squeaky's mom is working with two web designers to build a new and improved but similar bird club for us to play on since our beloved BC will be deleting our Bird eClub sometime this year! We need your support! So start nagging your parronts so we can stay together!
Basically, the more parronts that sign up, the cheaper the initial set up fee will be and also the annual fee to join the site. For more information and to sign up to participate please visit my page 28415 and leave an email address. Or you can email my mom, Sunny, directly at our email nubinskis@aol. com. She will send you all the up to date information that has been sent so far and she can answer all your questions. She also told me to tell you that all ideas and suggestions are most welcome. She also is hoping to find some parronts that have some expertise in working with advertisers and who would volunteer to get advertisers for the site. If that happens, costs would be next to nothing or maybe even nothing for all of us to play together.
So send your parronts to my page 28415 or email us to get information, leave suggestions and to sign up!
Hugs and Love to all! Squeaky, Picabo & Scion

  Hi Cori
My Mom agrees with your sweet Momma to keep using the apple cider vinegar as that will help your crop empty out better and keep the bacteria from collecting,Mom is going to do the same thing with our frother Mario to help keep his crop from collecting food and bacteria!It is such a frightening thing when something goes wrong with us and my Mom is constantly jumping up to check Mario's crop to make sure the swelling isn't still hanging around there.His crop area is so swollen from having the crop stasis and Mom has him off the toxic meds that the vet had given him!
Please tell your sweet Momma to relax and enjoy her Thanksgiving and we are all sending you all our love for a wish for a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with love and friends and family!We are sending you a wish for a peaceful day with lots of greyt food and family time!
Sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses! Loving you always and forever,my sweet Cori!Love Kallie

  Hi Cori and Boo boo
I hope that sour smell goes away and your ok too! Oh boy its good mom came home when she did and saw the birdies caught in the hair and got them loose at least.No use feeling guilty cause she was there to help them and that is a good thing!
Skin sis and family were going down their road and all of a sudden a deer ran across in front of their car and SIL slammed on the brakes but the deer hit the car. The one headlight is broken and the deer landed on the hood and then ran up into the woods. Son in law feeds the deer all winter so he really felt bad and the grand didn’t say anything for a long time and then just hoped he was ok and didn’t die. Good they all had seat belts on and nobody got hurt. Now starts the process of getting the car repaired and all that hassle. “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole stair case.“ Dropping a vote in your basket.

Mom also made those energy bars for us to eat, it's in the baking pan.

Full of peanuts, peanut butter and raisins and granola for energy.

Also there's 2 pans of pineapple cake so help yourself.

Everyone grabs a juice box or a cup full of juice and sit in the shade and hydrate.

The boys sit with the boys and the girls sit with the girls going over their strategy.

Raffi says I dunno about you guys but them girls is strong players!

Yeah I agree says Dixie, who knew Little Angel had it in her!

The girls team discuss the boys too. Chyna says I think we can still win this one and Kacey agrees. We just hafta show more aggression !! Argggg!!

Hahahaha then all the girls start laughing and that peaks all the boys interest, what are they laughing about says Pookie.

Everyone rests up before continuing the next half of the volleyball game, boys versus girls.

Come visit me, Angel Sallykins gives thanks to all her friends :), Pookie says Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie !! Yay & Laka is in the Kissing Booth ! Happy Gobble Gobbl.

  Hi Cori,
Well it's a sunny hot day of 81 degrees here in Hawaii.

Both teams are getting ready and start stretching and warming up for their game play and eyeing up the other team.

Kacey puts her wings to her eyes and then points to the boys team as if to say I've got my eye on you! Hehehehe

Mom says the game will end at 5 no matter who wins okay?

When I blow the whistle it's time, either a juice break or lunch break but two short whistles means the game is over. Both teams agree, good.

Pookie calls heads before Laka gets to say anything.

The coin falls and it's tails! Yay!! The girls team serves first.

Chyna serves the ball and it goes over to Gus who's in the middle and bumps it over to Pookie who sets it up for Chipper and he spikes it over to the dead spot and all the girls scramble to get it but unable to. Yay the guys all high four Chipper, way to go buddy!!

Kiddo is up serving and it goes over to Cori who bumps it up to Little Angel who sets it up for Laka and she spikes it over and Raffi dives into the sand for a save and hits it up to Dixie who volleys it over to BooBoo who bumps it up to Kacey who hits it over and lands by Mikey who bumps it over to Pookie who tries to spike it over but it hits the net.

Yay!! The girls team scream. Now it's Sugars turn to serve and she hits it so effortlessly over to Mario who bumps it up to Willie who sets it up for Kiddo who spikes it over and Laka dives in the sand to get the ball but Kiddos fast spike ball was too fast for her and sand flew all over as she dived for it.

Now Chipper serves and it goes over to Kacey who bumps it up to BooBoo who spikes it over to Gus and he dives in the sand and barely able to save the ball. Kiddo runs and bumps the ball back into play and Peepers volleys it over to Cori who bumps it up to Chyna who sets it up for Sugar and she spikes it over and lands in the dead spot. While all the boys try to dive for the ball they all end up in a dust of sand clouds with sand flying all over.

Yay Sugar!! All the girls yell and high four each other, good one !! :)

Now Cori serves and it goes over to Raffi and he bumps it up to Mikey who sets it up for Dixie who spikes it over to Little Angel who hits it but it goes out of bounds. Awwww the girls sigh.

Yay Dixie!! The boys all high four each other, good going Dixie!!

Mikey serves and it goes over to Kacey and she bumps it up to BooBoo who sets it up for Little Angel who spikes it over to the dead spot and all the boys rush to get up but end up in a cloud of dust. Yay Little Angel!! They all high four each other and she says in your face boys!

They hear the whistle and its a juice break and about time says Pookie as he's been sweatin' bullets out there.

They all run to the tent for some cold refreshing juice. Mom says there's pineapple, guava, lilikoi, orange, grape, apple and grapefruit juice so help yourself.

Mom also made those energy bars for us to eat, it's in the baking p

  Hello Cori~
I hope you are having a great day! We got to talk to dad this morning. He is in Iowa now and it's snowing there! He is at a truck stop and is going to stay there for the day. Truck drivers are only allowed to drive a certain amount of hours a day and if dad is on a road where there is an accident and he gets stuck, he will run out of hours. If he takes a break right now he gains more hours and won't have to worry about running out. He's on his way to Oklahoma. He actually told mom that the snow looked pretty! Dad usually hates snow!
We are getting things ready for mom to start her workweek tonight and for Ian who starts his tomorrow. Hopefully Black Friday won't be too crazy. Mom just hopes everyone has a good time.
I hope your Thanksgiving is just perfect! I am thankful for your friendship and know how very blessed I am to have found such excellent friends here on the BC!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

Well, mama just lost the blog she was typing for me & she has the eye doc today, so I will make this quick & hope I can get back tonight or tomorrow. First, Congratulations to your parronts on their 37th Anniversary & I'm glad they got to spend it with you & Boo Boo. My parronts got from out & stayed home on theirs in August (38th), too. The more they stay home & hold us, the better we like it!

I'm glad to hear that you are doing better--wish I could see your pretty eyes sparkle! You are lovely, sweet Cori. I am also glad that Boo Boo is okay and that her beaky is okay, too. Getting trimmed is always a scary thing!

Are your parronts doing anything special for Thanksgiving? Visiting G-ma & G-pa, perhaps? My parronts are going it alone tomorrow & then going to a family get-together at skinsis's on Friday.

Love,

Your Angelbird

Come visit me, ANGEL & PEPPER - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!.

Hope everyone at your house is feeling greyt.
This morning I woke to see the winter wonderland. Everything was white with lots of snow for dad to plow again ... hehehe. We got another 9 inches over night. Along with the cold, we will have daily snow starting on Thanksgiving morning. I have 2 new snow pics up for those who like it. I think I'll just go back to my perch for the day under the extra blankets.

  Hi Cori
This morning was a fairly sunny day with temperatures in the 50's and it was warm considering how cold it was a few days ago.Mom got ready early and left to go to Nana's after she cleaned our cages and fed us our breakfast.Both Dixie and Mario had to stay home today as Mom was going down this end of town to complete her and Nana's Thanksgiving meal.Mom picked up Nana and they came back down to Hyannis and went to Trader Joe's and got some things,then they went to Joann's Fabric but didn't find anything there,then they went to Shaw's and both Nana and Mom got some things marked down and Mom paid her NStar bill there and then Mom went to the Post Office and then after that they headed back to Mashpee and went to Stop&Shop and got some things there and then to the nature food store,but Mom couldn't find any white millet for Mario there,then to Walgreen's,then back to Nana's where Nana made them some lunch of a salad with cranberries and zucchini on the side and toast.Then Mom came home around 4:30pm and as she was unpacking her car my dad came home and helped her finish unpacking while Mom came in and put the light on for us and fed and cleaned us out for the night.Then she made dad some dinner and now she is done with the dishes we are finally going to have Mom take our dictation so we can get our visits in!Mom had parked her car at Trader Joe's and when she came out her car was covered in seagull poop from top to bottom and now my dad has to clean that all off for her!
Our highs for the day were 59 and our lows will be 44.
They are talking some kind of storm for us here tomorrow,we are supposed to get one to two inches of rain and the temperatures are supposed to drop and if that happens the roads will freeze and my dad will have to go to work and we'll get no Thanksgiving!Some forecasts are calling for snow here and we have no idea who to believe!
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 and Boo boo
I sure hope Boo boo beaky is better or getting better. Mom would of been just like your mom and dad and not gone out to eat either and leave me alone if that happened. Good to stay home and eat and go out later when things are ok then.
Today mom was home all day with me since the parronts went to the grocery store last night. Mom bought all she needed (and more) for Thanksgiving. Today she was chopping and dicing and every once in a while I would fly over to watch. Just when she would be really busy I would leave and throw the nuts out of the bowl on the coffee table though. That kept her busy too and after awhile she quit picking them up. She said she was glad there wasn’t many in the bowl and the bowl was small. Doesn’t matter cause I sure cant get those walnuts open no matter how hard I try! “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole stair case.“ Dropping a vote in your basket.

Glad to hear the trauma and drama with Boo Boo's beak worked out for the best. Did you get any of the Italian dinner?

Well, happy to report that Mom got back from driving her friend down to her disability hearing in time to blog, although it didn't go well. That darned judge sent her back for another doctor's visit after telling her she should try telemarketing! How rude! And he was late too. She and Mom had to wait an hour for him, then they got stuck in construction traffic on the way home. Mom's friend was not very happy.

At least it was still warm enough when Mom got home at 1 for us to share lunch and then go out for a sunbath at 1:30. I only got 30 minutes outside, but the vet said that is good for keeping my feathers healthy...and I do look amazing!

No biting today, and so far no cranky behavior at all. Mom's now got a pretty nasty bite from me on the back of each hand, so I had better cool it for a while. That first one is a week old and still looks awful. Who knew my beak was so sharp?

Susan and Riley Ann have joined the cheerleaders for the Milonga Bowl, and I forgot to announce our referees! They are C R Jake and RaneBeau; both are big boys who can stand up to anybirdy, even Jenny Lynn!

I sure hope Booboo's beak feels better today! You got a cashew for not doing anything? That's great, girl! Happy Anniversary to mom and dad, sorry they did not get out to celebrate, though.
Mom had fun at the wildlife center yesterday, she did the RVS animals again, which means she fed the bats. She loves doing that, they think they are so fierce, baring their teeth at her! She also did the raccoons outside, as well as the raccoon and ground hog inside.
Today we are going to make cornbread for the stuffing. I hope we all get a sample. If mom has the ambition, she will bake the pies, but she would prefer to wait until tomorrow so they will be fresher. Mom's daughter ordered a fresh local turkey which she will pick up after work and drop here on her way home.
Mom does have an errand today: she needs a 6 foot lead for Daisy's class tonight. She got the mat, the treats are ready, the clicker is in her pocket, but she doesn't have a small 6' leash. The one she has is really thick, too big for that little dog. I only hope she is able to teach that dog some manners! Mom has done her homework all week, so maybe there's a chance this dog will be better by the end of class.
I hope you are all having a good day. Don't forget to come by the Lakers page today to celebrate Thanksgiving with our team! Hugs, Falco

Sorry every birdie ... couldn't get on the BC yesterday. We had 42 degrees with rain again today. It was nice to watch snow melt. We lost almost 1/3 of our snow. But, on Tuesday we will be back to 32 degrees with snow. I guess I have to put that extra blanket back on the perch tonight. How about sharing some hot chocolate with me? Oops ... it's starting to snow already!

Sure know how your mom feels cause mom has been hurting too. Its in her back and leg as well. Maybe its more with the weather but mom sure hopes it soon goes away.Hope your mom soon gets some relief too.

We couldn’t get on BC last night either. Hoping it stays on so we can get our blogs done now tonight. Sometimes at night after I am in bed and covered for the night I hear dad cracking nuts that sit on the coffee table. Sometimes in the day dad will crack one and give me some of it so he does share. I get on the coffee table and knock the bowl off the table and then check all the nuts out to see if I can get them open but never can do that with the walnuts. They are tough nuts! Mom buys almonds in the shell and some of them I can get open though but takes me a long time. “Sometimes I think “what is a friend?” and then I say a friend is some birdy to share the last treat with as I would share with you ” Leaving a vote for you.

An extra set of ribs? No wonder your mom has problems, since there probably isn't room for those extra bones.
They have to be pressing on something.

I am not getting outside for a sunbath today, even though it is just about warm enough. The problem is me! My mom was in my room drinking hot tea from her travel mug for a headache, and I decided I didn't like the mug....and I attacked her hand that was holding it. Yep, another nasty bite, and I am now in my room in time out. I know I have been bad, because I am being very quiet. Mom didn't really yell at me, but she did say Good-bye pretty loud and three times! Haven't seen her since except for lunch. I behaved then, so why am I still a bad boy?

I did get a sunbath yesterday, although since I couldn't blog (thanks a lot, BC) I couldn't tell anybirdy about it. Today is trash day with the big trucks coming around, so I might not have gone outside anyway. Those trucks really scare me. And it is pretty windy here even if it is 75 degrees out.

I may not be blogging tomorrow, because my mom has to drive her friend down to court for an appeal on a disability hearing. If she gets home in time though, I will still be able to blog. We shall see.

Don't forget to vote for Miss Ruby #35469, there are only a few more days to vote!

I am apologizing for not coming by to see you yesterday!Mom was sitting down and getting our blogs done when all of a sudden we kept getting the Squawkatiel and then the 404 page not found and the runtime error and we couldn't get on BC so Mom thought that if she logged out and then logged back in again she could get us back on but that only made it worse,we couldn't get on period and this happened from late morning to the rest of the day and night,so here we are trying to catch up where we rudely got dumped.Mom has been having BC problems all week long and it just culminated yesterday when we got shut down entirely!I so miss talking to you also my sweet Cori,you always bring the sunshine to me whenever I see your sweet face on my page!
Its a dark,dismal,dreary pouring rainy day here but the temperatures are warm at 59 and supposedly going up to 61.Its not cold but having no sun and warm weather just doesn't cut it for us!Where is the bright sunshine?
Our hearts and prayers go out to your sweet Momma and so hope she's getting some relief from the pain she's in,my Mom can only imagine what she must be going through,not being able to sleep or move without being in torturous pain like that!Please give her another warm hug from my Mom and we all send her warm wing hugs also to make her feel better!

  `Ü´ Greetings & A Lovely Monday to You
Miss CORI and Miss BOO BOO!

I do hope that your Saturday and Sunday were full of fun and productivity. I know in my case I had to relinquish Momma’s eggsclusive attention and assistance on my Campaign to be your December Bird of the Month to more pressing parrontal matters around our K Kritter Korral. (The portion of Sunday during which Momma was available to bring me to your page for a visit, the BirdChannel was not cooperating. You might say that their GPS was out of order! **TeeHee**)

You see, Momma and Daddy were informed that they could eggspect a visit from my Grandma from Idaho from later today, to last thru Thursday morning when they all gather at Daddy’s youngest brother’s home about an hour away from us for the first Family Celebration with everyone present since Momma and Daddy have known each other. Grandma was eager to be able to spend time here with Momma and Daddy, and all of us fids of course, before joining the rest of the family for a concurrent Celebration of Thanksgiving and her BirthDay on Thursday! Then she will remain with my Uncle and his family until she returns to her home in Idaho later in the week, while my other Uncle comes to pay us a visit over the long weekend.

So, all of this is to say that my visits may be a bit sporadic from now thru the end of the month, due to Grandma’s visit, the Holiday weekend with my Uncle visiting, and the upcoming Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl Game. I do apologize in advance for any visits I shall have to forego. But rest assured that I shall continue to do my utmost to bring you the maximum amount of FootBall information in the time we have left together.

And on that note, let us get straight to the information I’ve promised you next about the Offensive Squad on a FootBall team …


Let’s begin our eggsamination of the individual Positions on the Offensive Squad.

QuarterBack – The Player who usually receives the ball from the Center at the start of each play. He informs his TeamMates in the huddle of the play that will be run and then, after the Center snaps* the ball to him, either hands the ball to a Running Back or throws to a Receiver.

Center – The Player who hikes (or snaps) the ball to the QuarterBack at the start of each play. The term comes from the fact that this Player is flanked on either side by a Guard and a Tackle; he’s the “MiddleMan” (or Center) in a contingent of five Offensive LineMen or Blockers. He handles the ball on every play and also snaps the ball to the Punter and Holder.

Guard – There are two Guards on every play, and they line up on either side of the Offensive Center. The Guards protect the QuarterBack from an Inside Rusher; they block Defenders immediately across from them and also swing out, or pull**, and run toward either end [of the line] to block any Defender when the ball carrier runs wide°.

Come visit me, `Ü´ Ruby Coaches the Offense.

11/24/2014 07:49.08 AM Report This Comment  
  Tackle – Both Offensive and Defensive, on Offense they are Outside Blockers on the line of scrimmage°°.

Tight End – Serves as a BIG Receiver [Oh MY!] and also a Blocker. Unlike a Wide Receiver, this Player generally lines up beside the Offensive Tackle either to the right or to the left of the QuarterBack. (Also “Strong Side+”)

Wide Receiver – The Player who uses his speed and quickness to elude Defenders and catch the FootBall, but who isn’t primarily a Blocker. Wide Receivers are also known as “pass catchers” [but I-I-I would parrotsonally NOT disparage one so!]. Also called a WideOut.

Running Back – A Player who runs with the FootBall. Running Backs are also referred to as TailBacks and HalfBacks, depending on their exact responsibilities and alignment.

FullBack – A Player who lines up in the Offensive backfield++ and generally is responsible for blocking for the Running Back and pass-blocking to protect the QuarterBack. FullBacks also serve as short-yardage runners.


I would also like to call your attention to a display of several of the basic Offensive Formations which appear in the Gallery at the bottom of my page. (They also appear in my Profile Picture at the top of my page; but they are much clearer and contain eggsplanatory text in the photos in the Gallery.) I hope these are of use to you in recognizing some of what happens on the actual field of play the next time you watch a FootBall Game.

I am also including several definitions of terms used in the above Position Descriptions at the end of this note.

Have a Greyt Day! Perhaps enjoy watching The Jets play The Bills at 7:00 pm on CBS, or The Ravens play at The Saints at 8:30 pm on ESPN. Both times are EST. Remember, it is virtually illegal to watch a FootBall Game quietly. So do what we Avians are most well-known for doing … **S*Q*U*A*W*K** . **I*T** . **U*P** ! ! !

*snap—the action in which the ball in handed or hiked by the Center to the QuarterBack, to the Holder on a kick attempt, or to the Punter.
**pull—when a player leaves one area of the field, generally moving back and then over, to block in an area other than his normal position.
°run wide
°°line of scrimmage—the imaginary boundary between the two teams prior to the snap of the ball. The Offense’s and Defense’s scrimmage lines are defined by the tip of the ball closest to them and stretch from sideline to sideline. The Defensive Team usually lines up less than a yard away from where the ball is placed.
+strong side—the side of the Offensive formation where the Tight End aligns. With a right-handed QuarterBack, the strong side is usually to his right side.
++backfield—the group of Offensive Players (the Running Backs and QuarterBack) who line up behind the line of scrimmage (vs the Offensive LineMen and/or Receivers who line up at the line of scrimmage).

  Hi Cori
Hope all is well after the plastic melting fiasco ... that would have scared our mom to death too! We have been gone awhile. Mom and dad returned from their parrot lovers cruise and then needed a vacation from that vacation .... good grief I guess it wore them completely out! We are finally caught up on demanding attention and the folks are pretty caught up on chores, work and are into the Holiday rampage lol. Hope all is well, have a wonderful day. V4U. Hugs.
Love Dory

  Hi Cori
Poor mom, hope she feels better soon. Is she taking anything? Mom finds that Aleve helps with back and legs.
Sorry we weren't able to blog yesterday. Mom was at the Galleria, a shopping area about 20 miles (through city traffic) away. The event started at 12 and ran to 4, but the folks from the wildlife center wanted all the volunteers there at 11 to help set things up, and of course, they stayed at the end to put it all back in the vans. Mom and her partner had Quincy and Dan Quail; Jake the snake was at another table, and Ray the crow was in still another location on the second level. On the third level there were programs every hour featuring Murphy the skunk and Martha the Great Horned Owl. There were also refreshments and kid crafts, as well as face painting on that level. It was a fairly large event to organize and pull off so far from the center, but a local auto company outfitted a van and donated it for a year. It has cages in it, and is comfortable for a lot of animals, and has cats, dogs, and wild animals painted on the sides so we can now transport critters to events and hopefully make more cash.
Anyway, mom was pretty tired when she got home so she spent the evening cuddling with us and crocheting things for Christmas.
Today mom has 2 public tours in Dinosaur hall, but she'll be home making out the shopping list for Thanksgiving and being with us afterwards. We were going to try a Hubbard squash pie this year, but mom left the squash on the back deck, and it froze, so it's not good for anything except squirrels and deer now. Mom tossed it and the pumpkins over the hill for the animals this morning.
Our weather, after freezing rain yesterday morning (during the drive, of course), has turned warmer. It was in the high 40s when we got up today, and it's supposed to carry through until tomorrow, and be nice once again. It's probably our last hurrah, though. We can expect wintery conditions to get here again on Wednesday. Oh, and the furnace is finally up and running reliably after the guy replaced some pressure switches on Friday. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of attention and love. Hugs, Falco

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

  Hey Cori,
Well thus morning is just starting as every birdie wakes up well rested and ready for the next game.

Mom has some orange juice and pineapple juice and other juices ready for every birdie this morning along with blueberry pancakes and pineapple waffles too.

The breakfast buffet was great and will give every birdie energy for todays game.

The coin toss is in favor of the girls so BooBoo serves the ball and it goes over to Gus and he bumps it to Pookie who sets it up fir Dixie who spikes it over to Chyna.

Chyna bumps it up to Kacey who volleys it over to Kiddo who hits it over and Laka catches it.

Forgetting about the no catch rule she smikes i forgot! Sorry!

The boys all looked shock and Laka says it was a mistake okay?

So now Raffi serves the ball and it gies over to Little Angel who bumps it up to Cori who hits it over the net to Chipper and he bumps it up to Kiddo and he tries to spike the ball over but it catches the net and the boys ho awww!!!

So now its Laka's turn to serve and she hits it over to Willie and he volleys it over to BooBoo and she bumps it up to Celine who hits it over to Mikey and he bumps it up to Dixie and he sets it up for Mario who spikes it over in the dead spot and the girls are unable to get it.

Cookie serves and the ball gies over to Kacey who bumps it up to Chyna who sets it up for Cori who spikes it over to Pookie who hits the ball but goes out of bounds.

They hear the whistle and mom says juice break!!

As it was getting hot in the 86 degree weather she doesn't want any birdie passing out of a heat stroke.

Time to hydrate she says and everyone heads to the tent for some cool refreshing drinks.

Come visit me, Angel Sallykins gives thanks to all her friends :), Pookie says Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie !! Yay & Laka is in the Kissing Booth ! Happy Gobble Gobbl.

  Hi Cori
Hope all is well at your place.
We enjoyed 38 degrees and lots of melting snow today. It was nice to have rain and fog for a change. Maybe it will get as high as 41 with rain on Sunday! I think I can take one blanket off the perch tonight!
Hugs
Chyna

  Hey Cori,
I can smell the pineapple cake in the oven baking says Lookie. Hmmmm

But mom says I have a special treat for everyone!

Mom made her killer lasagne with sautéed mushrooms and 3 cheese and hamburger all mixed in layers.

This will satisfy even the pickiest birdie. :)

Okay so everyone go wash up for dinner and see you at the dining table.

When they all get back there's a big pan of lasagne and garlic bread sticks and juice and water already on the table. A table set for a dozen birdies with plates and forks and knives and napkins.

Mom says a pretty prayer before everyone digs in.

Lord we thank you that we are all together and thank you for all the friendships that we have made along the way. May this meal nourish our bodies and keep us well.

Lord we also pray for our friends in the northern states with all that snow and coldness.

Please keep all of our friends safe from harm and keep them warm too.

In Jesus name we pray, Anen. Amen says every birdie.

Okay dig in! Momma Ruthie cuts the lasagne and puts it in every birdies plates along with garlic bread sticks and some tossed veggies.

Don't worry everyone the pineapple cake should be done by the time we finish dinner and ready for dessert.

Mom pours the juice in cups and has everyone pass it down till everyone has some juice.

Everyone is so quiet that all you could hear was hmmm chomp chomp of the food and no chatter. Mom figures that will come after.

After everyone is done with dinner she gets put the pineapple cake still warm from the oven.

Okay who wants a piece of pineapple cake??

Everyone yells I do !!!

After desert every birdie is so full and has gotten the birdie food paralysis and their eyes are starting to close and fall asleep. So mom puts out the big sleeping bag in front of the tv so everyone can watch and will eventually fall asleep.

They all had a hard day of volleyball games so let's let them sleep.

She covers everyone with a warm cool blankie as its in the high 70's with a little breeze coming in the window. So now every birdie is tucked in and she kisses everyone on the forehead goodnight sweetie! :)

Tomorrow is another game so get all the rest you can.

Love,

Momma Ruthie and Papa Peter

  O Cori
You smell so fresh and clean and you are SO SOFT! You are truly irresistible! Angel snuggles up to Cori and preens her to enjoy her fragrant feathers... All four of us finally got our claws trimmed yesterday when skinsis stopped by after work (early release day at school, yay!). Skinsis looked good for her first week back teaching. Charlie likes the daycare too, so G-ma was happy to hear that things are going well. Blessings all around!

Love,

Your Angelbird

Come visit me, ANGEL & PEPPER - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!.
