  Guess what Oscar ?
After the trauma of torture and humiliation is over tomorrow (yep - grooming nails and wings !), I'm going on vacation with mom ! We're going upstate to the Finger Lakes and there's a big screened in porch there. I love to sit and watch the lake. I yell at the swimmers and boaters and ducks ! It'll be great ! When I come back next week, I'll tell you all about it ! love Cookie

  Hey Oscar
I just made the most beautiful design on the table cloth with some strawberries ! I eat the little seeds and use the rest to paint ! Have you ever tried it ?

Our heat wave just broke ! We've been 24 hours now without the a/c. The first in about a month. I spent today yelling at squirrels trespassing on my property !

  It's still really hot here Oscar
We've had thunderboomers and rain on and off for the last couple days - you think that would cool it off ? NOPE ! I think it's even more humid !

Right now I'm guarding my heap of toys on my gym. Whenever mom gets too close I growl at her and if she gets really close, I lunge ! I've got to try to control myself better or she may take things away from me ! Like your mom did with your box ! I remember you telling me that story :)

Have a great night - what are you guys doing for the weekend ?

  Oscar !
Well, I'm glad somebirdie is enjoying summer ! I haven't been able to even go out on the deck in my travel cage this summer yet ! It's too hot and humid ! At 6:00 this morning it was already 76 degrees and 89% humidity !

It was a quiet 4th of July here - fireworks are illegal in NY so all the humans have to go to sponsered events. Mom is going tomorrow night to West Point. The army band does a free concert first . . .

Enjoy the nice weather for me too ! love Cookie

ATTENTION EVERYBIRDIE
Tonight mommy received the following email:

"Hi everyone, I'm here to ask you what your thoughts are on moving our Clubs over to Facebook. We are gauging the idea of starting a loyalty type/activity program over here where you can earn points to redeem for prizes. We are also looking to start a Pet of the Week type program on Facebook also. Nothing is in stone yet, but these are ideas that we are considering and I am here to gather our members' opinions. Feel free to send me an email at channelabuse@i5publishing.com. If you have an email list please feel free to copy and paste this email into an email and send it out to all Club members (dog, cat, horse, bird, etc.) Thank you. - Crystal Apilado, Web Community Specialist at I-5 Publishing"

I'm pretty sure everyone here will think this is a bad idea. I think everybirdie should email Miss Crystal at the email listed channelabuse@i5publishing.com and let her know how much birdchannel means to us. We certainly did. You guys are part of our family, and we wouldn't want to loose you.

It was a better weekend - even better than better cause g'pa is coming home tomorrow so there won't be running any back and forth to the hospital any more !

Of course, it's raining again . . . it seems we're in a pattern of a day or two nice and then down pours ! Yesterday it didn't rain till mom was running out to the car ! She came back in and I yelled "wet, wet, wet" ! And she was :) ha ha ha

I scared mom this afternoon - I had a new cereal box and I decided to chew it and shred it from the inside ! Mom couldn't find me !

  Listen to what happened !
The other morning mom uncovered me at 4:00am ! ! ! I had to eat breakfast in the dark ! G'pa had to go to the hospital for a heart operation . . . needless to say, even though the weather is nice now, mom is running back and forth to the hospital. I'm being neglected and I don't thinks it's fair !

Except for now ! I'm running back and forth on the keyboard - so if there's a mistake, that might be the answer ! heeheehee

Mom promised that the weekend will be better for me !

I'm glad Lulu is fitting in ! She does look cute - what kind of personality does she have ?

  Hey Oscar !
I wish it would get nice here too ! Sometimes on some days it is . . . but rain and storms are ruining my chances of sitting outside on the deck with mom. Like today is nice - yesterday rained, tomorrow is supposed to rain - and of course today is the day she's busy ! NOT FAIR !

Lulu looks like a cutie - I'll go introduce myself now . . .

It's finally summer time here - after it being hot, hot, hot, it rained and now it's perfect ! I went out on the porch with mom for a while - I yelled at the wild birds and they yelled back ! It was fun. Then when we came back in I got to have a strawberry :) YUM . . .

I hope there are none of those bad storms near you ! I watch the WeatherChannel with mom and it is really sad to watch all the destruction.

Have a great day ! love Cookie

It finally got nice here ! Mom says later today maybe we can go sit out on the back deck to share dinner :)

  Rain ! And more rain !
There are so many roads closed around here with flooding ! Me and mom were just watching the tv while we have a strawberry for breakfast ! There's all kinds of flooding and wind damage - and it's supposed to be another day like that ! That really stinks for a long weekend - it is supposed to clear up on Sunday but by then everything will be too muddy !

It got really warm and muggy all of a sudden here - I had to yell "wet, wet, wet" twice yesterday so mom would bring me my bath tub ! Then we sang songs and talked while I dried off . . . I love bath time :)

Silly Rex ! I get noisier when I'm hormonal but that's it - if mom leaves my sight I yell !

As if having to endure the little rug rat yesterday weren't bad enough - we have rain ALL week ! ! How depressing !

The baby nephew plans for the farm ? Well, it rained all day here ! I discovered one more thing - I'm way less work too ! Mom had to crawl all over the house after him. He's pretty funny though - he knows he's not allowed to touch the electronics, so what did he do all day ? Crawled over there while telling himself "no, no, no," the whole way ! Silly baby !

I'm so glad you're getting better - don't let Rex take your mommy time !

I can't help but worry buddy - I'm glad you and mom are spending lots of quality time together :)

I wanted to, but tomorrow mom is babysitting her nephew - he's 14 months old so today we Landon-proofed the house. Jeeper, I think I'm way cuter, I'm way more fun and I can TALK ! Doesn't sound like a very good to be Cookie day :(

Keep feeling better - I won't relax till I know you're 100% better ! love Cookie

  Morning Oscar !
We too, have had really nice weather ! And I love the feel of sunshine too - I can't wait till July when I get to go on vacation - the summer house has a screen in porch so I get to be on my gym !

Yesterday was g'mas birthday so everybody went out to dinner . . . didn't even bring home a birdie-bag ! Can you imagine, forgetting me ? Mom made it up to me though - she air popped some popcorn :) I love popcorn !

The weather is perfect ! In fact I've been out on the back deck in my travel cage a couple times already ! The sun felt really good on my feathers and I got to yell at a squirrel in my tree !

I'm looking forward to summer when mom is home more and we can go out everyday :)

I've got a new toy - finger traps ! They have a clothespin inside to toss around after I destroy the rest !

It is supposed to warm up by the weekend ! A new hummingbird feeder was put up in back so now I can watch for them when I'm stuck in my cage !

What are you doing this weekend ? Did mom ever end up with the GC ?

  Hey Oscar !
Our temps are only in the 50's so far - that means I can't be screaming at kids getting off the school bus yet :( Mom did switch her closets around - and then was sorry !

Pretty soon it'll be summer and we'll have lots more outdoor time though. Today we are thinking about g'mas pug, she was having surgery for a tumor. My wings are crossed she's OK, cause we're good pals !

Birdsonally, I don't see how she could look anything besides quakers - we are the best !

It's still chilly here too for this time of year - only about 50 :( I was really hoping to be able to have the window near my cage opened by now so I can yell at the kids waiting for the school bus ! heeheee

Have you been hormonal lately ? I've been a little nippy and so mom hopes the weather changes soon too . . .

It's almost spring ! At least it was . . . then mom put her coat away till next year and guess what ? It got cold again ! But she says she refuses to wear it in April ! ! ! So there mother nature !

She also went and Cookie-proofed my food and water doors on the new cage, so now I have to find a new way to impress her with my cleverness . . .

G'mom's quaker laid an Easter egg ? Was it colored ? heeheehee

Don't worry about not getting by - it's been busy at my house too ! Spring seems to do that to mom. She wants to go out more now that it stays lighter at night.

Guess what ? I got a new cage ! The first thing I did was show mom that I knew how to open the food and water doors. I showed her this by dumping my water . . . twice ! Then she finally figured out how to Cookie-proof it ! grrrrrrrr

I had a great Easter ! I got 4 eggs from the bunny - one had popcorn in it, one had almonds, one had a bell and one had nutriberries. I spent lots of time rolling them around on the table listening to the different noises and then rolling them off the table !

Do you like baseball ? There's a whole virtual league if you're interested - you can find the quaker team page by going to the profiles button and then putting in QUAKER LITTLE DRAGONS . . . Waddles is on the team too !

Mom was so NOT paying attention to me last night I finally climbed to the highest perch on my gym (she calls it the yelling perch !) and screamed "Wet. wet, wet" so she would bring me my tub ! Sometimes her priorities are just not straight !

  Hey Oscar !
I am soooo tired of winter ! Although when we ended up with almost 10 more inches of snow on Friday and mom stayed home, I must admit I was pretty excited ! Especially since yesterday and today were nearing 50 degrees, so mom didin't even have to shovel ! Mother Nature took care of her own mess ! Meanwhile me and mom played :) Good times :)

So between the temps and the fact that the starlings and grackles are back in the yard - I must deduce that spring really and truly is on its way ! ! ! YIPPEE
