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.

  Morning Cori & Boo Boo-from Jen Lynn
...we do not want to scare you kids, but we do not like the sound of aunt Carol's wound and it's healing potential, as our humans age, serious things can happen that never used to! We hope she don't take it to lightly, before it becomes serious! Today is the Kentucky Oaks race, and we will be watching it at the same time aunt Jane and Ms Chyna watch, if dad can remember! Today is also dad's first session of physical training, he hopes they start him slowly at first, so he won't be so sore it cripples him further! We are going to have a much warmer day with sunshine, it has been a long time! Happy TGIF to all of you, and give our love to all in your sweet happy home, see ya all tomorrow, our freshly mowed lawn looks nice, little things mean a lot to us...

Forever love from Jenny, Ms LaLo, Angel Christy, Zig, & our daddy

  Hi Cori,
Thanks for coming by and helping us celebrate my Angel Birdie of the day.

I'm glad you had a good time, as I know I did. I always enjoy having friends over celebrating something special. :)

Did you get enough to eat ?

Yeah the parronts cook for what seems an Army so feel free to come by my page and eat leftovers as there's a lot.

We can bring some by to the pie shop too and I was thinking of bringing some food to the KB also. I know how every birdie likes to chow down. :)

Glad you were here to celebrate with me. :)

It's been so hot in Hawaii lately and tonight we got some rain. That's good to cool off the island and keep it green. ;)

Mahalo for your friendship and I always enjoy hosting parties. :)

Big Angel wing hugs and beaky kisses.

Here's a vote for you.

Love from above,

Your friend Angel Sallykins

  Hi Cori
Seems like you have had lots of rain days. We just had that one bad day with the 5 hour storm. now we are back to sun and upper 80's.
That painter sure doesn't spend much time at your house .... wonder when he will be finished?
Finally, your mom is doing better, take good care of her.
Today was a trying to get things done day. At least I had a nice chat with Kaji on the phone. I also had some chat time with with Redd (my cardinal friend). So, it was a good birdie day for me. Friday starts the eggcitement .... it's KY Oaks Day! Get your derby hat on as the two day fest begins. Rider's UP!
Hugs
Chyna

  Hi Cori and Boo boo
It sounds like the painter guy gets side tracked a bit LOL.
I am usually ready for bed time between 8:30 and 9 and go to bed willingly. Mom and I go through the whole tradition every night and once I get my good night kiss I go right on my sleeping perch and mom covers me and then usually sits and finishes up my blogs. Mom said she hears me getting down and eating my pellets a little bit every night though. Yep I do that and its different with the cover on but before long I am back on my perch sound asleep again. I guess we all have funny things we do and what are some of yours? “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. Its learning to dance in the rain.” Left a vote for you my friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  HI CORI !!!
When the parronts were young kids they use to hurt themselves all the time and never thought anything about it..But the older they get the longer it takes for things to heal and they mind the pain more...
Well you want a painter who is excellent and does a great job...But to come and only paint for that long will take for ever to get the job done...Especially if he is also replacing some of the wood...
If your Mom has something to plant around the foundation of the house it would be best to wait until the painter is done and in this case it might make it to late to plant it...Didn't he give your Mom an idea how long it would take him to paint the house?...
Sure hope you are having a great Thursday...Pecked a V4U...With many birdie wing hugs to you my dear friend...Love you, Sam :o)

  Hello Cori~~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Turned out to be a sunny one here.
It's movie night so I guess we are all going to bed early. Mom is taking McKenzie on a very long walk before so she will be tired out. Mom said we could get up for a while when she gets home. They are going to see Captain America Civil War.
We didn't do much today. The kitchen always seems to need cleaning and there is always laundry. Tomorrow we will be straightening out the pantry yet again! Seems like that always needs to be done too!
Road work continues at night. Hard to tell what they are doing but the left lanes are still not paved. They put some sort of pink canvas looking stuff in holes and piled asphalt on top. That part was paved over when mom drove this morning. Hopefully the left lanes will be paved tonight and that should be it!
Have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Sweet Coribell
I am hoping that your mom can wait a bit longer to do the hillside, so that her shin can heal up. Or perhaps your skin bro could help mom out--Mama's Day is Sunday--help makes a great gift.

I'm very glad to hear you have a painter for the house. No mama Carol on a ladder!

Love,

Your Angelbird

  was a motel!Mom asked him was it the Casa Del Sol and he wanted to know how she knew!Its run by Jamaicans and they told him it was a rental of the rooms there and it was payable by the week!He had other rooms available for $333.00 a week and some for $800.00.Man,those ads can be so misleading!So as you can imagine skin bro said no thanks and now as we speak he's looking at a place in Sandwich for $800.00 a month.Mom is waiting to hear from him on that one.Then skin sis called and wanted to take Mom out for Mother's day today as the weekend is kind of up in the air right now but Mom didn't feel like going out in the pouring rain again.She had enough of that yesterday.Besides she needs to stay home and get some of these chores done before our dad gets home.Then our dad called to tell Mom that one of the ladies he works with in the office was celebrating Cinco de Mayo and brought in all these Cinco de Mayo foods for all the guys to enjoy.He told Mom he ate so much of it and he's so full.So Mom will just save his lunch for tomorrow.Mom cleaned our cages and our room and then fed us our bean mix,she forgot to put our radio on and Candida had to scream loudly for Mom to come back in and put it on for us.Mom is going to try and get the bathrooms done today if time permits and other than working on the chores its going to be another boring day here for us!We are happy about that at least Mom is home with us all day and not running off somewhere!
I've been having BC problems all morning and now over three hours have been wasted trying to get my notes done.Besides the constant cycling and the URL Error Page and the timed out pages and not even being able to get to my own pages its become very frustrating.Then when it finally comes back the poor bird I sent the message to first when it started gets 5 of the same blogs from me and Mom has a hard time trying to delete them from their page!UggggggHHH!
I hope this gets to you in one copy only and not 5 or more!Its taking all day just to get one blog done!

  Hi Cori
Mom and I feel so bad for poor Aunt Carol hurting like that!Still just having to rake all those leaves on another hillside is a bit rough without falling down that hill again.It would be safer for Aunt Carol if the lawn service will come and do it for her,Mom and all of us here are so afraid that Aunt Pam is only going to slip down that hill again and get even more hurt than she is now!She'll never get a chance to heal if she falls yet again!That hillside really sounds so dangerous!
At least your Mom got the painter to come and paint even though he's so slow and only works for three hours at a time!Nana finally heard from the painter she hired back in October.She's playing phone tag right now as he called and left a message for her yesterday when she and Mom were out running errands,she returned the call and she had to leave a message.They never seem to call when you're at home!Dad blamed our peach tree for putting all the green mold on the siding of our house,but that wasn't so as several winter Blizzards back our peach tree got hit by the heavy Blizzard and split down the middle and had to be removed.Dad had the house power washed and the green mold it back on that same side and on the same place it was before.Oh does my Mom know what you mean about hiring people to do a job and they grab your money but leave you with a huge mess that was worse than before.The painter should never have wasted time hunting for those cigarettes.He was there to do a job not to fool around on your poor Mom's time and money!I hope he's not getting paid for not working and working for less time each day!It sure seems like Aunt Carol is right,at the rate he's going the house won't be finished until next summer!
We woke up to another cold,very windy, dark,dismal,dreary rainy day again.The highs for the day will be 49,the lows of 44 and right now its 45 and pouring rain.Mom went to the mailbox to put some bills out and she got soaked.After she got our dad off to work,she started cleaning up and collecting the recyclables to put in the car and the downstairs trash together to take to the dump tomorrow.She's still gathering more junk to load the car up with to take from her on going cleaning projects of all the empty rooms that are still holding stuff from both skin sibs.She's hoping that one day soon she'll have it all gone and the rooms tidied up and no more junk.She still has to get to the TV room and finish cleaning out all the built in bookshelves from all the old VCR movies that skin sis left behind.Mom has so many more books and old school books from the skin sibs that need to go out also and lots of magazines that skin sis keeps bringing over for Mom to read.Mom had an interrupted day as skin bro called to tell her he was on the deck so she ran and opened the door for him and he finally got a hold of the manager from the $250.00 apt that included everything and that was a joke!Skin bro got an appointment to see it at noon time and he IM'd Mom and told her it

Is your mom putting Neosporin or equivalent on that shin??

Well, Mom has not heard anything from the stupid people at the lab about the insurance yet. She says you can tell they are stupid, because they were foolish enough to include a customer satisfaction survey at the end of the page for registering problems. Mom blasted them, and when they asked for a final comment about why Mom had given "completely dissatisfied" in her responses, her comment was "Your billing department is run by idiots." Maybe that will get them moving, but we doubt it. They will probably take so long, Blue Cross will refuse to honor that bill from last October, since we changed to Blue Shield on 12/1. **sigh**

However despite it being too chilly (65) for a sunbath, this has a been a pretty good day for me. Mom is home all day, and there have been treats! We shared a pb cookie mid morning, then a roast beef and provolone (and **sigh** spinach) wrap for lunch with a tapioca pudding cup for dessert. I call that good eats!!

  Hi Cori
Even if the guy is Michelangelo, working for only 2 hours a day is ridiculous! He should spend more time there and get done in fewer days. Will he help mom with the planting if he takes too long?
We're having that dark, dismal, gray sky weather here, with rain, drizzle, and just wet off and on all night yesterday and all day today.
This morning when mom walked the dogs, it was raining. When she left for the museum, it looked like it was drying up, but when she left there, it started raining again.
Mom had 2 tours with third grades this morning: one on PA natural history and one on biomes of the world. Both of these tours are docent favorites during tour season, because most of the kids come to see the dinosaurs, so anything away from dinosaur hall is a welcome relief. This is also the busiest week of the year for tours, so all the docents are on duty, so to speak.
The first group went to geology hall, to talk about ancient PA, see the coal forest, and talk about fossil fuels before going into gems and minerals to see the stones from PA. Following that, they went to several dioramas on the second floor that feature PA animals, then out to see reptiles and amphibians. The little ones were active and involved, and the tour was good.
For the biomes group, mom did a couple of dinosaurs, then concentrated on 3 biomes in Africa, since that is a great hall. They did desert, Savannah, and tropical rain forest there, and by then their hour was up.
Mom stopped on the way home to pick up some berries and meat for tonight, and now she's ours for the rest of the day. That's always music to our ears! We love having mom home with us.
I hope you are having a fun day today, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hey Cori!
Laka waves to her and says over here! The buffet line starts here. Laka passes her a big plate and it has sections in it like a school lunch tray. This way you put the most in the big section and the rest in the little sections.

Laka describes all the food on the table. There's Kalua pig which was roasted in an underground oven. And it has a smokey flavor which is really good. Then we have the luau leaves or some sort of spinach and the fat from the meat is what gives this dish a very succulent flavor. Then of course we have the sticky rice or fried potatoes. There's also my favorite tater tots, mashed taters and macaroni/potato salad.

There's bar-b-Q on a stick teriyaki style which is also a local favorite too. There's toss mix greens with baby spinach and cucumbers and grape tomatoes with a lemon wedge. There's Italian dressing along with a papaya seed dressing which is pretty good too,

There's a big bowl of fruits all mixed together. Grapes, watermelon, kiwi, strawberries, cantaloupe, apples and olives too.

For the dessert table there's Teds chocolate Mac nut haupia pie, moms pineapple cake, chocolate dobash cake, pumpkin pie, apple Dutch pie and dads favorite key lime pie.

To wash it all down we have every kind of local juices, hot tea, hot cocoa, coffee, diet soda, regular soda and of course bottled water.

Everyone is sure to waddle out of here or sleep over. :)

I guarantee there will be lots of leftovers tomorrow and the next day too.

So help yourself and enjoy our Hawaiian style luau and later dad will be setting off the fireworks and later I will be dancing the hula. If I don't fall asleep eating too much. :)

Here's a vote for you and much Mahalo's for letting our fister Angel Sallykins be Queen for a day.

She is so happy, Laka sighs, just look at her, she's gleaming with sunshine. :)

With love from the Hawaii Ohana. :)

I sure hope that your mom's leg heals good and fast too. She has to take it a little slower. Soon, the leaves will be taken care of.
Everyone I speak with is having problems with painting etc. We are doing stuff ourselves right now. But everyone is complaining about how slowwwwww the work is going.
We had 5 hours of nasty t-storms and tons of rain. A lot of flooding in our county but we are fine. I think the plants all loved it. Bunni came over after the hard rain. It still sprinkled on him a little bit. Well, the pool is very full now. It was a little low with all the 90 degrees we had. Hope your day was good.

Poor Aunt Carol feeling so lousy and not taking the time to slow down and take it easy.We are only so happy that she got to change the bandages and that the wound on her leg isn't infected,that's just so scary!Oh those nasty ants do so much damage and eat wood for dinner.Mom is hoping that my dad finally conquered the ants Mom had in the kitchen.
This morning was a dark,dismal,dreary pouring rainy day.The highs for the day are 51 the lows of 45 and right now at 7:00pm its 44.Mom got dad off to work and then she got some things done before she came and got us up.She cleaned our cages,fed us our bean mix and swept our room.Then she got us in our carrier and took off to Nana's.When she got there she set us up in our cages there and then she helped Nana get my cousin Bella's water bottle fixed and set back up in her cage.Mom called skin sis and she was already outside in the driveway and Mom opened the door for her to come in.Then after Mom and Nana had finished some tea and a waffle,they all left in skin sis's car to go to Falmouth.Falmouth is still a mess with all the detours so you can't get to where you're going without having to drive all across town and back again,several of the roads are all closed off so that makes it even more challenging to drive around and get any errands done in any kind of a timely manner.The rain didn't help either,it was pouring so hard you couldn't see and kept getting splashed and sprayed from the cars on the other side.Mom and Nana went to the bank first and from there they went to Shaw's/Star Market grocery and Mom got some good clearance items,a half gallon of Hoods frozen yogurt blueberry for $1.00,some shampoo and toothbrushes and mouth wash all for a dollar each.Then she got a bag of frozen dinner for $3.99.Both Mom and Nana paid their EverSource bill there.From there they went back to Mashpee and went to Bobby Byrnes and shared a nacho dish together and then from there they took Nana to church and from there they went back to Nana's to collect Dixie and Candida and to get ready to go home.After Mom cleaned out our cages and packed us in our carrier,she left for home and it was so scary driving through the heavy down pours,it was really so hard to see.Mom was so glad to get home into a warm house and so were we!Dad unpacked the car for Mom and while she put everything away,she made dad's dinner and got us our snack.Mom cleaned up the dishes and then she is finally sitting down to start our notes.We can't wait to snuggle with her and dad later on!

  Hello Cori~
I hope today was a good one. Your poor mom needs a break! She needs to take care of herself and let everyone else worry about their own selves! I must agree with the others that if her leg does not start to heal very soon, she should see someone about it. We are glad it is feeling better but a day off to just relax and do nothing is exactly what she needs! Tell her
Dr. Sugar has prescribed that for her!hehehehehe
We are keeping her in our prayers and I know I can count on you, Boo Boo, Piddy and Paddy to take good care of her! Well, Piddy and Paddy may need some guidance from you but I'm sure they will do great!

Tell mama Carol to please rest long enough to heal. The work will always be there. We have rotting wood too, found out Sunday that we have squirrels in the attic that got in up by the roof. Dad is working on humane solutions. The first try, a trap, didn't work. I guess I will be thankful that we have a house to fix!

Glad mom is feeling better. Oh no rotted wood is not good!!
Oh woe is me what a day I had. Yep that dreaded groom though mine only consists of a beak and nail trim it is still not good. Not only that but I just had this done at the vets a month ago but mom said he didn’t get them short enough and holding me was painful to her hands and shoulder. I heard mom on the phone talking to Cindy but didn’t know it was about me!! Pretty soon mom and I were going down the steps and I was in my wingabago and on our way. Oh I had lots to say and talk about…I love going in the car. There was lots of construction of course along the way. Finally we were at c&b warehouse and then wrapped in that dreaded towel and the dirty deed done to my talons and beak! Mom did buy me a nice toy something like Grey Birds mom did with coffee filters. I was quiet on the way home and we stopped at skin sis but I didn’t have anything to say there either., Then the silent ride home and once on my condo I went right in and got on my perch and the silent treatment to mom again. Maybe I will forgive her tomorrow. Right now I am tired and just want to sleep! “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass.

Even if Mom's leg is not infected, she might want to have her doc take a look at it if it isn't healing. Don't mess around with that tuff.
Mom is on the warpath today. Quite a while back she got two bills from a lab company her doctor uses for the blood tests she had done last October. They keep billing Medicare part B, which is not Mom's insurance. She keeps notifying them of the correct insurance info, they respond that they will rebill correctly, and then today Mom got another bill for the full amount saying Medicare denied it. Of course they did! And you can't get a human being on the phone. The only way to communicate is via computer, and they apparently are all stupid or even brain dead. There! She feels better now.

I did not get a sunbath today. It never quite warmed up enough, because the clouds never burned off like they were supposed to. We did share a Lean Cuisine Pecan Chicken for lunch, but Mom should have read the package more thoroughly before she bought it. It has a maple sauce and raisins, neither one of which Mom likes. She loaded it up with cottage cheese which helped. We both liked the wild rice part of it, and we did eat it. Mom never wastes food, but she won't buy that one again!

Don't forget the hat contest is still going on, and your flock gets two votes every day: one ladies and one gents. Vote on Milonga page #165848. The race is very close in both categories.

I hope mom is feeling better today. I also hope that leg is healing. Do you need parts of the house replaced? Rotting wood doesn't sound good.
My big news: The vet is very pleased with my progress. The scab fell off my booboo when she toweled me yesterday. She examined the wound to make sure it wasn't seeping anywhere, and it wasn't, which made her happy. There is still one tiny hole where it isn't quite healed yet, but it's well on its way. I have a whole bunch of new feathers coming in, both on my chest and on my leg! Even where I tore the skin so far, there are feather follicles still there, so the doctor is pretty sure I'll grow them back. We have another appointment next week, and I still have the collar on, so no baths or spritzes.
Yesterday mom saw a hummingbird on our azalea. She got all excited, and will clean and fill the feeder today. It was a female, which means there might be a nest nearby.
Mom finally planted her larkspur seeds, but it might be too late. Our neighbor, who gave her the seeds, already has plants 4 inches or so high!
Today mom is off, but has some errands to run, so we'll be in lockdown for a couple of hours, until she gets back. It's a beautiful spring day here, kind of cool, but sunny. I hope you are getting some good spring weather there, along with cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Cori,
Thank you for letting me be Queen Angel for today. I sure do like all the new stuff at the Castle. And those Mac nut trees we grew, boy they're growing faster than weeds! How cool is that? :)

There's a luau going on tonight at the Castle along with King Grey Bird so come on over.

We'll have all the Hawaiian favorites including the sticky rice! :)

Lots of local sweets like Leonard's malasadas and those purple poi donuts too.

Mom is making a ton of pineapple cake so we will be happy campers. And as the night goes on dad is doing the fireworks thing at 8 pm and we'll also have the bonfire too.

Marshmallows and smores galore. Come and stuff yourself and then go on a diet the next day. That's what we'll be doing. :)

Dancing doing the disco duck and other favorite songs will be playing and Laka will also be doing the hula too. We can all dance along with her. Grass skirts will be provided so no worries. :)

A big Mahalo for letting me be Queen for the day. :)

Love, hugs and a vote for you.

Angel Sallykins Queen for the day. :)

HI CORI, OH YOUR POOR MOM. I HOPE SHE IS CLEANING THE WOUND ON HER LEG WITH PEROXIDE AND PUTTING NEOSPORIN ON IT OR EVEN IODINE TO KEEP GERMS AT BAY. SHOULD CHANGE THE BANDAGE EVERYDAY TOO.

HOPE YOUR MOM GETS SOME SLEEP AND FEELS BETTER TOMORROW.

OH THE NEVER ENDING SAGA OF BUGS OF ANY KIND. THE TINY ANTS ARE EASY TO KILL BUT THE ROACHES ARE A NEVER ENDING PROBLEM. YOU CAN'T KILL THEM IF THEY ARE IN THE WALLS BETWEEN CONDOS. MOM JUST KEEPS SPRAYING EVERYDAY AND WHEN SEES THEM SHE KILLS THEM. THE NEIGHBORS DON'T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THEIR HAVING PROBLEMS BUT I SUSPECT THEY DO AND AREN'T SAYING ANYTHING.

I HOPE EVERYONE HAS A BETTER DAY TOMORROW.

  Hi Cori
Your mom just ran herself into the ground! Please make her get lots of rest and take it easy for a while. Happy to hear from you but keep an eye on mom, take good care of her.
Oh yes, that rotted wood attracts ants for sure.
Today the parronts were busy working around the house. I told mom that I think I had a sprained toe and couldn't help. So, I got to rest and play all day. I did shout some instructions to them as I knew they needed direction. The weather people say we might get a storm tomorrow, we'll see as it's been very dry here. Have a greyt night.

  My Sweet Coribell,
I hope things are settled down & mom is all better from her wounds & eye injury. You did good getting the leaves out of her hair and helping her relax. Do all you can to entertain her and relieve the stress--the four of you do so well at that!

Speaking of eyes, mom had the eye doc last Wednesday and didn't have to get a shot. In fact, the doc said the condition may be stabilizing. That would be great news after 4 years of shots.

Angel preens Cori & the two birdies snuggle up and fall asleep in each others wings...

Love,

Your Angelbird

  Hi Cori,
I want to thank you for your votes for me in the quest to get my BOTM Badge.

It's just not fair as I had worked so hard through out the whole month campaigning. Only to find out that the BC was not fixing the site.

Perhaps with every birdies help me and the others like Kacey and Mikey will get our recognition like we should have.

A big Mahalo to everyone for their love and support. The things we birdies hafta do to get things done.

Here's a vote for you as well my sweet friend.

Love,

Laka

Hope all is well at your house.
Today was pretty boring ... laundry day. I faked being so tired that I had to rest. When mom wasn't looking, I was busy chewing up a wood toy. After she was finished, I had all the energy of a sugar buzz .... hehehe. Yes, I was chatty and playful and charming of course. Tomorrow, mom wants to paint her closet ... I feel a relapse coming on ....

  Hello Cori~
I hope you had a great day! I didn't think I was going to get any notes done today at all! We had tons to do and mom still has a few more things to do but she is going to wait until we are all in bed! I don't know why? I thought all the screaming I did was a real help.
The complex is doing a HUD inspection tomorrow. I guess they are trying to get certified so they can rent to low income people and get subsidized by the government. I imagine they lost a lot of people when they raised the rent so high. They could have just lowered it and maybe people wouldn't have moved.
We had to clean up the house and the storage room. Dad had lots of junk in there and it took a while. There is still stuff to do but like I said, mom is waiting for us to go to bed.
The construction guys showed up a little while ago. They are blocking off the right 2 lanes on my side of the street. Guess it's going to be another noisy night. They did take a 3 day weekend so I am thankful for that. I think they will be done in a few more days.
Have a lovely evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love ya ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Cori,
Thank you sweetie! Laka gives her a big birdie hug and kiss.

I think what you guys doing for me is so sweet. At least however long the BC stays up that is.

Mom is still on the horse pills of antibiotics twice a day. Now her organs are hurting from all that coughing. :(. She has ta hold her tummy when coughing as she might break a gut. So to speak.

Today mom is doing more resting and sleeping as she has ta go back to work in Monday.

Hope you have a nice sunny day!

Here's a vote for you.

Hugs,

Laka

  Hi Cori and Boo Boo!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight is the last night! I am so excited! Mom was finally able to pick up all of the bird toy parts that have been scattered around her room for the past month. She was happy about that! Haha! Tonight we are making a toy that looks like bird. You will need,

- Cardboard
- Coffee filters
- Finger traps
- Beads
- Little bird toy trinket pieces
- Safe stringing material
- OPTIONAL white paper

Take a large piece of cardboard and cut out a nice sized bird head and body. Once you have the body cut out, take a piece of string and knot the bottom, then poke a hole in sorta in the middle of your cutouts body, but a little lower. String your string through the hole, with the knot being on the back side. Take some coffee filters, and cut the sides into strips and poke holes in the middles. String those on like you would for a puff, one facing down, one facing up, and so on, until it is a nice sized puff on the body. String on a bead and knot it. Now poke a hole in the middle of the cutout near the bottom. Take a piece of string and knot them bottom, then string it through the hole with the knot on the front side (you won't see it, it will be under the puff). Take three finger traps, and string those on. Then string on a bead and knot it tight. Once they are tied, you can stick them out in different directions like a tail. For the head, it will be different for everyone depending on what kind of bird you want it to look like. We did a Green Cheek Conure. If you want an eye ring, cut out a small oval and poke a hole in the middle. Then to attach the eye, poke a hole on the cutout where you want it to be, take a piece of string and tie a knot at the bottom, string it through, and then string on the paper, and then a dark bead. Then knot it. To put on markings, you will do the same thing with the holes and string. Just add them (beads and random toy pieces) however you'd like in what ever colors you want. To make it so that you can hang it, you can make a loop, make a small hole in the cutouts head, and then string the loop through. Or, you can tie a bagel to a piece of string, then make a small hole in the cutout under the puff and string it through the hole with the bagel on the back side. Then knot it. You can then attach it by sticking the bagel through the cage bars and turning it the opposite way so that it stays.

I will post a picture of both the front and back sides of this toy in my gallery.

Thank you SO much for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

That really was such a long long time that Aunt Carol had to wait for your daddy but it was worth the wait as his eye is improving which is such wonderful news!We are all only so happy that Aunt Carol's eye is feeling better and is only itchy from the bite but it has to be really painful for her side to still be hurting.I agree with you that its good she had to sit still while waiting for your dad so she couldn't get into anymore trouble!Its so good that she got to come home and sleep for a long long time,she really needed to catch up on all the sleep she had to have missed!
Oh what a bad budgie Paddy Cake was to fly off with the silk poop protector that was on the curtains,for a little parrot she sure has strength to carry such a long piece of material!
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 53 the lows of 40 and its 53 right now.We were all rudely awakened early this morning with the sounds of trucks and banging and lots of noise.The neighbor across the street from us is having her whole paved driveway dug up right down to the dirt,the trucks are scraping and loading all the busted up pieces of pavement into trucks that will get rid of them and there's back hoes and roller trucks and guys out there with axes chopping up the dirt etc.Just Thursday she had a big scrub pine that reached up to the sky taken down.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and gave us our bean mix.Nana sent us home with some eggs and Mom mixed that into our bean mix.She got dad his breakfast of blueberry waffles and coffee and then she started on some chores she didn't do since she was gone all day yesterday and too tired to do them when she came home.Dad was waiting on skin bro to contact him to help him move today to the apartment next to skin sis.So far we haven't heard a thing.So far both Mom and dad will be home today with us and its another uneventful day and who can complain about that?Not Us!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for pretty Cori!Loving you always and forever,Peepers

  Hi Cori and Boo boo
The dogwoods are such a pretty tree! Paddy cake sure keeps things busy at your place LOL.
Today mom was home all day though she was downstairs cleaning a little bit so I had to be in my condo then. Maybe this feather trim is keeping her home now.
After she got her feather trim yesterday all her curls were gone so she had to give herself another perm when she got home. When mom does that she hides out in the back room till she is done because she doesn’t want me around the stinky stuff. Good it don’t take her long though and a double good cause dad was home so I could be out of the condo at least.
I did get my bath today and mom blow dried me cause it was a little chilly and she don’t want me getting chilled. I am still fixing my feathers and picking out all those little white fuzzies too.
Mom got her duplicate drivers license today in the mail so she will put those back and use her original ones though. She has to get new ones next year for her birthday present anyway LOL. “A memory last forever never does it die. True friends stay together and never say goodbye.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Cori
Things falling from above us can be verrry scary!

Well, Mom took her last antibiotic today, and the cough is almost gone. Hopefully by the time she tries the gym again on Monday, it will actually work. She is feeling a lot better.

Mom abandoned me this morning to go to the bank with Dad and deposit her two tax checks, plus he had his tax checks and a couple of reimbursements from insurance. Since she was not gone very long, I did forgive her.

Fortunately for me Mom is rereading one of her favorite book series, and since she is just on book one of four I am getting lots of Mom time. Plus we shared a half sandwich of warm pastrami and provolone on sourdough for lunch. I really do love pastrami, probably the best of all the meats I get to share with my mom. She is pretty fond of it too, but we both get enough. Then we shared a tapioca pudding cup for dessert! Now that is definitely high on my list of favorite treats. Love that stuff!!

  Hi Cori
I hope mom continues to improve. She did well to stay in bed for awhile, and get some rest. Did she read anything interesting at the eye doc's? It's great news that dad's eyes are okay!
Dogwoods are very pretty small trees, mom likes them a lot.
Mom wasn't going to, but she posted 2 pics of me in my collar, because some birdies asked to see. As you can see, it's like a turtleneck. I hope it comes off soon, because it's keeping me from getting spritzed or getting a bath. Mom is afraid to wet it, thinking that might damage my skin under it.
Today there's not much going on. It's a beautiful day outside, though. Mom walked the dogs in sunshine! She'll spend part of today getting ready for the opera tonight. Aunt Ginny can't go with her, so her niece Jessica is going to pick mom up for dinner and the opera. The opera is The Rake's Progress, which mom has never heard. It's by Igor Stravinsky, who wrote some controversial music in his day, like the Firebird and the Rite of Spring. Those are both ballets that mom likes, so hopefully the opera will be at least interesting.
I hope you are having a great day today, getting some sun and lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Morning Cori and Boo Boo-from Jenny Lynn
...it sounds to us like Paddy might need a spanking, LOL, your home is filled with daily drama! We are glad mom's eye is feeling better, and your daddy's eye is doing well! The Occupational Therapists wants to modify his bathroom a little bit to make it more handicapped friendly, it is all for free through the Vets Administration! Dad was up early loading more trash in a large box and taking it out to the covered trash can, things are still moving along, but very slowly, he will get it all done eventually! He misses Jen and LaLo so much, they could always pick up the slack time and make him happy when he became sad and lonely, much like phone calls from our BC friends!! Have a great Saturday dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny, Ms LaLo, Angel Christy, and our trying hard daddy
