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

  Hey Cori
RAMBLINGS OF A RETIRED MIND

I found this timely, because today I was in a store that sells sunglasses, and only sunglasses. A young lady walks over to me and asks, "what brings you in today?".

I looked at her, and said, I'm interested in buying a refrigerator. She didn't quite know how to respond. Am I getting to be that age?

I was thinking about how a status symbol of today is those cell phones that everyone has clipped onto their belt or purse. I can't afford one. So I'm wearing my garage door opener.

Early this morning at 4:00am when my dad was leaving for work it was freezing and snowing like mad.In the end we only got about an inch or so more and our highs are 21 and our lows will be 12. Mom got us all cleaned and our breakfast of warm pastene/egg/veggie mix when the phone rang and skin bro was outside in the driveway at 9:15am.He had shoveled more of the driveway as the plows left more snow at the end again while they came through.Then Mom made him breakfast of blueberry waffles and some strawberry shortcake coffee and he stayed with Mom til after 2:00pm.Mom gave all of us birdie cures,nail trims for Dixie,Kallie and Candida as their nails were pinchy.Dad went to get gas this morning before he went to work and he tried to open the door for the gas tank and he couldn't get it opened,so he finally had to leave and get to work and later on in the day he finally got to pry it open,it was frozen shut.Mom and skin bro were looking out the window watching all the wild birds coming and going from the feeders and the bird house and there was a starling who was inspecting the bird house,he had been poking his head into the entry holes and then on the second entry hole he decided he was going to go inside and both Mom and dad sparrow came and chased him away,he kept trying to come back but both sparrows chased him right out of the yard.We are supposed to get another big storm on Monday of a foot or more,this is getting to be ridiculous.Skin sis is coming by from work to visit with Mom in about an hour and other than that its been a boring kind of a day.
Sorry about such a quick blog but my dad wants mom to spend some time with him as he hasn't been home all week and when he did get home he was sleeping!I so apologize and will be back tomorrow to chat more!
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
Mom and dad did go to that one in Cranberry to see where it was and was a mess plus there is a waiting list too. Its pretty far from here too. Mom will wait and talk to the new vet and see how that goes with her. Thanks for the help and appreciate that alot.
I had a long day yesterday and was ready for bed last night and went to bed about 15 minutes earlier then I usually do. Mom felt it was too cold to go to get my nails trimmed today at the warehouse so she just keeps filing them down a bit every so often. There isn’t much heat in the warehouse but just in the one room Cindy does the grooming in. ”Dear Winter, I’m breaking up with you. I think its time I start seeing other seasons.

Well, no biting today, but unfortunately the one perpetrated yesterday left a very large bruise on my mom's hand. Darned thing is about 3" in diameter, so it is hard for her to forget the bite that brought it on. However since I gave her cuddles and face rubs while we were having our morning visit before the grocery run, I am a good boy and reaping the benefits.

Those benefits would be a nice sunbath which although the wind came up once was still nice since that blast only lasted for about 3-4 minutes. Then we came inside and shared the last half of Mom's chile relleno burrito from yesterday. I think I like the beans the best, but I really enjoy all of it.

And now I am sitting Mom's knee dictating my blogs. I am almost used to my new shorter nails, but I still have a little trouble gripping. Boy, do I miss my nice sharp talons....Mom, not so much.

  Hello Cori~
I hope you are having a fun day! I'm done with my yelling for now and have gone back to chomping down on my veggie bowl. I got apple last night so mom gave me veggies this morning. It's fun to switch it around sometimes and as long as I get something I like to eat, I don't seem to mind!
The last load of laundry is in the washer and mom had some to put away. We seem to be doing laundry everyday now so it is not such a big deal.
There is a big line at the Starbucks next door! They are selling Seahawk Fraps! Mom treated herself to one after she renewed her license yesterday and it was yummy! It's the Vanilla cream, which mom likes anyway, with blueberries and a green tea whip on top! Seahawk colors! There are Seahawk colors everywhere up here today and I imagine tomorrow will be the same! Mom wore her 12th shirt to the DOL but the drivers license picture is only your face so you can't see the shirt! BUMMER! Almost everyone at the DOL was in Seahawk gear, even the employees! I think it's going to seem a bit dull around here without Blue Fridays!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Your folks need to find an eager teen who wants to make a few bucks. That's what mom is looking for, too, but she hasn't found him or her yet. She'd gladly pay to get the driveway done.
Hope your little doggie is doing okay. It's too bad she had to get rewrapped, but that could happen to any dog.
King Peppino is inviting everyone to stop by his page and share in the fish fry (bake and grill, too) that he's hosting today for his last day in the castle.
It's cold and dry here today. No snow is expected until tomorrow. Mom will spend the day doing laundry and cleaning up a few things, then will go to dinner with her sister this evening. She's hoping her sister will want to come this way, so she doesn't have to drive. The driveway is still a little icy because the salt only melts at a certain temperature and it is colder than that. Of course, the sun could warm up the asphalt enough to melt it, too.
There's nothing else going on, but I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. It is the weekend, after all! Hugs, Falco

We can't complain, we have not had much nastiness so far this Winter, and we DO NOT trust Punxatauny Phil, that dude in on somebody's payroll, LOL!

  Here Cori,
Pookie says I got you a basket that we can put all the neat shells in and collect them in.

We can show them to the moms later when there no so starry eyed. If ya know what I mean. Hehehehe

Here's a neat one, Pookie picks it up and it's a pink one with swirls around it and shows it to Cori. Do you want this one sweetie? Cori says oh yes it's very pretty, thank you.

The two keep looking for sea shells along the shore line as something for Cori to collect while she's on the beach in Hawaii.

Meanwhile BooBoo and Laka are snorkeling in the shallow tidal pools looking at the giant hermit crabs not realizing that the diving masks make them bigger than they seem to already be and it makes BooBoo jump out of the water. Till she realizes how small they really are and then she giggles and so does Laka.

BooBoo says that was silly of me, wasnt it? Yes BooBoo, but not you know how the mask can magnify things right? Right Laka, this is so neat and just like Jock Quostu the French guy on TV ? Yeah that one always exploring the under sea world.

This is fun says BooBoo!!

What a fun day at the beach for everyone even the parronts as the remember and still have smiles on their faces after its been 2 days after the massage from the 2 hunks but hey who's counting right?

Main thing is that they are still smiling and they are still on the beach and that's all that matters. :)

Love & hugs,

Laka and Pookie

I hope you had a wonderful day! It was pretty nice around here. The fog never completely burned off but it wasn't too bad. Mom had to go get her drivers license renewed but it only took her about half an hour. She went to the library after and got me a lovely stack of new books to read.
I just love your new pictures! They are brilliant! I wish mom would get some more for me!
Mom did her taxes tonight so that's all done. She is never sure if she understands everything. She used Turbo Tax so they sort of do the whole thing for you. It was free last year but she had to pay for it this year. Like I said, she doesn't understand most of it but it's done!
We did more cleaning today since it's mom's day off and she tries to get the major stuff done on Fridays. Tomorrow we will get some meals made ahead of time and decide on what she is going to buy for our Superbowl/Puppy bowl party. Mom will be sleeping when the Superbowl starts but she'll know when they win because of all the noise around here! It was the same way last year. We still celebrate and enjoy the Puppy bowl!
I hope you have a lovely evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

That really must've been awesome to see something that big on your patio standing there looking into your window like that!We don't get that close to the wildlife here only birds and some bunnies occasionally,but nothing like deer and bucks those are in the woods where the hunters hang out which is so sad.
This morning was a dark,dismal,dreary day with rain on top of the snow.Our highs for the day were to be 38 and our lows will be 14 and right now its 32.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages and got us our warm pastene/egg/veggie mix and then she cleaned our room and vacuumed the whole house.After she got that done she cleaned out the coal/wood stove and got it all set up for the next storm we will have and that will be on Monday where we will be getting another foot of snow here!There's just no place to put the snow we have right now and my dad is working 12 hour days to get rid of it and to get the mountains of snow on the roads down so drivers can see around them.As she was getting ready to scrub the bathrooms skin bro called and he was quite upset so Mom told him to come on over if he could get here safely which he did,so Mom fed him some lunch of angel hair pasta and told Mom that he was still shaking after slamming into an elderly man who suddenly slammed on his brakes with no warning,skin bro tried to stop but he hit him anyway.They both got out of their vehicles and the man waved skin bro on as there was no damage to either car.Then my dad calls Mom and tells her that he will be working 12 hour days on the weekend also.So now he comes home from work,Mom has dinner ready,he eats and goes to bed only to get up at 4:00am and do it all over again.Mom hasn't seen him in nearly a week now!This is going to go on until further notice.

That is a cute picture of you. Oh boy I sure would of been scared at that deer looking in my door too! Yes its the other drives you need to watch out for it seems.

Mom is hoping to get a nice Saturday here soon to go see Cindy to get my nails and beak trim. She is only in now on Saturdays till April when it warms up more and then she will be there on Wednesdays too. Mom says my nails cant wait that long though. The vet mom finally found and liked has now sent us a paper and sold the business to a lady vet but she wont be moved in till March. We will see how warm tomorrow is and maybe call Cindy and make sure she will be there. I know I can wait LOL. ”Dear Winter, I’m breaking up with you. I think its time I start seeing other seasons.

Well, I messed up again and bit my mom this morning before she went to the gym. So she not only went with a war wound on her hand, but in zumba one of the ladies commented on a bruise on her chest Mom hadn't even noticed.....and there was a bite mark in the middle of it. Ouch! Not sure when that one happened.

I am being good this afternoon though, and I sit quietly on my mom's knee dictating my blogs. It is not warm enough for a sunbath, but it also doesn't look like the rain is going to show up. And the snow pack in the mountains (our major source of water) is only at 25%, so apparently the drought continues. When will it end? Ask the members of congress who deny there is such a thing as Global Warming....humph!

And they all come out to drive when the weather is bad! Those SUV drivers who think because they have a huge vehicle, they can maneuver it... Mom thinks they are more dangerous than anyone else on the road.
It rained, then froze when the snow started overnight. Today it is cold and windy. When mom walked the dogs, it was still a bit icy too. When she got home, she had to shovel and scrape the driveway so she could get the car out. Today was her shift at the center, and she was about 20 minutes late because of the shoveling. She did the avian nursery today. Right now there are 4 screech owls and about 8 mourning doves in there, as well as a blue jay and the 2 cedar waxwings. Mom was lucky. Only one of the doves got out while she was cleaning its cage, and when she finished, she was able to net it and return it quickly. She hates when she has to chase them around and they go behind the bank of cages or someplace else that's hard to reach. The staff was also training a bunch of new interns today, which is good news for everyone. Mom didn't think there would be interns there until spring.
After the center, mom went to the grocery store to pick up a few things, and now she's ours for the rest of the day. YAY! We love when she stays home.
I hope you are having a great day, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

This morning was a bright sunny morning with the temperatures of highs of 33 degrees and lows of 26. we are at 32 right now.Mom got us up and fed and cages cleaned out.Candida and Dixie got to sleep with Mom and Kallie got to stay in his sleeping box in the tv room all night.After Mom got us all settled she got dressed with her warm clothes on and boots and went out to the garage to start tackling the deck and walkway and mail box and as she opened the garage door there was skin bro tackling her side of the driveway and was she ever so glad to see him!While he was working on the driveway,Mom walked around to the other side of the house,she had to walk in the street and down our street to get there to start the walkway and mail box.Mom could barely get a small path made as the snow was so deep and so high and she made a small path all the way up to the deck and found one stair at a time and by the time she got to the top of the deck skin bro was down by the mailbox making that better and larger so the mail truck will fit in to get to the mail box.Then skin bro took over cleaning off the whole deck and he even cleared the snow off the top of the birdhouse and opened up the other entry hole for them.Mom went back inside as her arms were really aching at that point.Skin bro finished the deck and the walkway and Mom made him breakfast of waffles and strawberry shortcake coffee.Then dad called and wanted to know if skin bro would help him give his car a jump start as it wasn't working and had been in the snow for three days and skin bro said he would and hung around with Mom til 3:00pm when dad called and said he got someone at work to help him so skin bro left and Mom got dinner in the oven.Now dad called Mom and told her that he needed her to come up and bring some antifreeze and distilled water from home as his car started smoking and was running very hot so now Mom has to leave and drive on these awful roads to bring dad the stuff and she's so hoping that his car will work with this and it won't be anything more serious.Well,Mom went up and the roads were treacherous and slippery,she even slipped and skidded on the road in front of our garage.And the roads into town were no better,she was so happy that it didn't take dad too long to fill his car with the antifreeze and distilled water and it was really getting dark as they were heading home again,the snow piles were so high you couldn't see around them and it was quite dangerous with those cars that didn't even put their lights on when it was dark.Mom is hoping she just doesn't have to go out tomorrow.When dad came home she made him pork tenderloin,mashed potatoes and mixed veggies.He took his shower and went to bed as he has to get up at 4:00am and he's still on the twelve hour work schedule til further notice.Maybe Mom can get to her house chores tomorrow.Maybe clean out the coal stove?
Nana was yelling at Mom because she went out there to shovel the snow,but Mom couldn't get anyone else to com

Looking forward to the rain on Friday. Sure hope it really happens. Every drop that falls is a tiny drink for Mother Earth, and she is still very thirsty here in So Cal.

Well, the dreaded deed is done. Mom called Jennifer the groomer today, and she's all healthy again. So we went to get my nails trimmed just a little while ago. Mom was amazed, because I behaved perfectly. I climbed right into the carrier, and although I did fly about a bit in the trimming room I settled down once Jennifer toweled me with my own towel which Mom brought along. I didn't even try to bite Jennifer once or squawk or anything! Mom was very proud of me. And then I gave little quiet "talkative" squawks to my mom all the way home. Now I am sitting on Mom's knee dictating my blogs. I am a bit subdued, but that is usual after a trim. I will be back to normal by bedtime.

We did get a sunbath, or rather an overcast bath today. Even though there was very little sun, it was warm enough and Mom knows the UV still comes through the clouds. And I did get my two nutriberry treat, so all was good outside. Then we came in and shared lunch. It was Chicken Poblano, and Mom always adds some of her special ground dried chile powder to it to make it really tasty. And the pasta? One of my all time favorites....even better than rice!

  Hi Cori, we love your new profile pic, Jenny
Once again we are having about normal Winter weather, no real complaints here in Rock Island! We got our new 2015 issue of Bird Talk Magazine from I5 publishing, we are anxious to read through it! Dad's home check-up went very well yesterday, virtually all his vital numbers were well within acceptable ranges, but he tries so very hard to be good, he wonders if it is to little, to late! He has almost totally adjusted to a salt free diet, and very few sugary snacks at bed time (a bad habit), worse than smoking and drinking Bourbon! Have a great day dear friends, and give our love to all in your pretty home, see ya tomorrow...

Lovin' ya all, Jenny & our Dallas family

PS~More prayers of our East Coast friends, they must be a tough bunch of folks...

I like your new pic. I hope you're telling that groundhog to make sure spring isn't late this year.
I agree, lots of folks got way too much snow. If it didn't hit NYC, that's the way the wind blew.
Mom is a little worried today. She has to go to the museum, which is about a half hour drive. This is normally fine, but they are predicting freezing rain for exactly the times she'll be gone today! They said it would start late morning and continue to early afternoon. Her tour is at 11:20! We hope driving conditions aren't as bad as predicted. Mom doesn't mind driving on snow, but ice is a whole different story.
Other than that, there's nothing new. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

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

  osed to get more on Friday and on the weekend.We are only so happy to be back on BC again,my dad will not be coming home again tonight as the roads are really bad and he doesn't want to get stuck in our driveway and on the roads coming home.He's been working in twelve hour shifts for the last several days.Mom's arms are killing her and she is so happy to be back in the warm house,she doesn't want to see another snowflake for the rest of the winter,the deck is still piled up as is the walkway and the mailbox,she was too tired and sore to deal with it today!And tomorrow they're supposed to send a truck down here to plow the street out better and there goes the end of the driveway that was plowed out,this time it will be higher than ever and like one big wall!Mom's none too happy with that!I'm so sorry for rambling on and on like this!We're just so happy that we can talk again and visit!Now Mom's got a lot of catching up to do and not much time to do it in!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kissesfor my sweet Cori!Loving you always and forever,Kallie

  Hi Cori
We are so sorry that we never got back to you,our power went out on Tuesday morning around 7:00am and Mom was busy trying to get the old coal/wood stove to run and after two and a half hours she finally succeeded.Then when the embers were bright orange she put the coal on top and it actually took this time.Mom shut the tv room door to keep the heat in the tv room and brought all our small deck cages in and then brought us all inside,she had to tie the door shut as the strong winds just whipped through the house and kept opening the door.All day and all night we listened to the wind whipping around us out there and the windows were all pasted with the snow so you couldn't see out the windows.Mom called NStar and they told her that it would be multiple days before we got our power back because as soon as they would fix one area another would break down.Then on the street that we are off of a big tree fell down and one of the town trucks broke down and NStar couldn't do the repair job that needed to be done.Early this morning Mom went out to see just how bad things were and there's a tree that fell over in the driveway and the snow is piled higher than my Mom is.The deck and yard are covered and the snow is as high as the four foot fence,the snow on the deck is up to the top of the bottom of the glass part of the storm door and right against the house.Mom was out there this morning trying to shovel the snow,its 23 degrees and the sun is out today but Mom's fingers are frozen and they were beginning to sting so she came inside for a rest.She tried to use the snow plow but the snow is way too high for that little thing.Mom is trying to get just dads side of the driveway done as he's been staying at work overnight for the last few nights and is running out of food so Mom has to get the driveway shoveled so he can come home.She tried calling plow companies but they haven't gotten back to her yet.We got well over 24 inches of snow as the surrounding towns got 24 inches.
Mom finally got someone to plow out half her driveway and the guy kept getting stuck as there was lots of ice underneath it,he had to get pulled out by the guy who was plowing out the neighbors yard across the street with a bob cat.He had a big truck with a plow on it and no matter what he did he kept getting stuck.He even pulled the tree up that had fallen across the driveway for Mom.The roads here are badly done and you can see everyone bouncing up and down coming down LakeSide even in their SUV's and skin bro came to help Mom this morning and got stuck on the corner of Lakeside,the street that Mom is off of and no one would help him,he had to get out and shovel himself out and finally someone came along and pushed him but instead of coming into Lakeside they pushed him onto the main road so Mom told him to go home as he kept fishtailing for most of the way down here.Mom was so scared he might slide into something.This snow is way too much and we have no place to put it and we're supp

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