  Heya, Chico!
Not that hot out today, only around 80 but the dew point and the humidity were in the mid-60's so you know it is very sticky and very damp. YUCKO! Tomorrow is supposed to be worse. She is definitely going to get out to the bank, and then pick up some groceries from Trader Joe's, and drop off the rent check. September 1st! Wow.

Other than that, not much else going on. Me and Mom day. Love it!

I didn’t get a sunbath or even go outside today. Its hot and humid here again and looks like its going to be like this all week too. When I go to bed at night mom and I have a ritual where I kiss my jungle talk toys and a few others that I have One of them is for babies and I don’t mess with it much during the day but when mom plays the music at night on the one button I really listen to it real close. Of course the lights are flashing and bounce off moms glasses too so could be another reason I get so interested in it when its bedtime. Then again just like a kid and not wanting to go to bed mom says. LOL. “A friend like you is like a four leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Happy Monday ! Mom had a great time at aunt Tanya's yesterday - she got to see the aunts again, and meet lots of the flock ! She's posting some pictures when we're done here ! Plus she was home by 7:30 to say night-night and tuck me in ! Daddy said I took several fly overs looking for her during the day ! He even took me around the "no fly zone" to show me she wasn't hiding on me !

We're back to summer temperatures - 90's and humid - but that's OK, cause mom promised the next two days before her meetings start are ALL mine !

Have you noticed that pictures and blogs are NOT disappearing the last couple days ? Dare we hope things MIGHT be getting better on BC ? Have a great day :) love you ! Cookie

the hummingbirds are still coming to the feeders but their numbers have slowed down. mom just made a new batch of nectar which should last about a month. we have seen hummingbirds come as late as November. not many but they must be stragglers coming from the north. we got a light sprinkle of rain during the night but we need a lot more.

  Heya, Chico!
We were up to 73 here, and it has been grey and damp to boot. The sun came out a bit this afternoon, and when Mom was coming home it was getting ready to set. It was a brilliant red, so we figure that is due to the forest fires out West. She so wanted to get a picture of it, but was driving and could not get to a spot where she had a good view of it to stop and snap one. It is dark now, too. Guess that means we have fall time coming. Supposed to heat up over the next week, so I am pretty sure I will get to the market. I know I will get to the vet for my nails and wings on Thursday. I think I need the nail trim, too--been chewing them and making them into little points. Did I tell you Mom is not impressed? Yeah.

  Hi Chico
Today was more humid and warmer here today though we did have some rain during the night. I got another bath and sun bath too before it got too hot. Last night when mom was putting me to bed she showed me the moon out the window. It was so big but it wasn’t real white like it was before. This time it was more orange almost like the sun but not that bright. Mom thought maybe cause it was cloudy out. Mom finally set my light to go off a half hour earlier with the timer so that should be better for now. “Our paths may change as life goes on but the bond between friends remain ever strong.” Left a vote for you my friend~ hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Raise your wing if you saw mom on tv last night at the race . . . that's OK, I didn't either - but she had a super time ! The excitement in the air was incredible ! She tried to get pictures of AP but only got pictures of the backs of people's heads ! He was mobbed by his humans, his security, and fans . . . and mom is short ! It was so sad when he didn't win the race though . . . Mom won $4.20 when BigBeast placed in the Forego . . . she felt bad that he was saddled with such a name ! Not as intellectual as aunt Jane's picks, but it worked !

Today is another big day - the BC Adler BBQ at aunt Tanya's ! Mom can't wait to see them all again and aunt Tanya is only a little over an hour away - she promises to get more than the backs of heads with her camera this time !

Daddy will go check on the g'parronts and then come home early to me to play :) Hope you have a great day ! love Cookie

Mom is watching the Packers game...or rather the Packers getting injured. Cobb, Hyde and Bulaga are out with shoulder, neck and ankle injuries. It sucks. Brewers came from behind and led, now are losing. American Pharoah got beat. It is not a good day for sports.

Did not get to the farmers market either. Too chilly. Only 59, with rain and fog. Brr. Mom said I had to stay home cuz it was not warm enough. She was wearing a light jacket, so I guess she was right. Sigh.

Hope your day is much better!

Another pretty day here in the burgh thought the humidity is creeping up. I got a bath and a sun bath today again too. My light above my condo is on a timer so it comes on in the morning and goes off in the evening when it is time for my night night. Well the days are getting shorter already so I am ready for bed before that light goes out. Let me tell you once it goes out I leave out a noise so mom knows too LOL. I mean if I didn’t tell her she would never notice I don’t think,,,what that woman would do without me is hard to even imagine!

Happy Saturday :) It's our last day of nice . . . tomorrow goes back to summer - sticky and hot ! That's supposed to last straight through the week . . . figures ! Mom goes in on Wed. and Thurs. for meetings !

The parronts are leaving me today to go celebrate daddy's birthday (which was last week) with mom's cousin Patti. Every year she gets them tickets for the Travers Race at Saratoga . . . only this year American Pharoh is running ! So exciting ! For mom and dad at least . . . me ? I'll be home watching tv and the wild critters out the back window. Mom and dad won't be home till 11:00 or maybe even midnight ! That's a late tucking in ! But at least they're coming home tonight - it's about a 3 hour drive . . .

So you have a great day ! See you tomorrow - love Cookie

HAPPY TGIF DAY
vulture populations are plummeting in Africa
Africa's eight vulture species have declined in number by an average of 62 percent during the last 30 years. vultures are one of nature's most important scavengers—a flock can strip a carcass in a matter of minutes.these natural recyclers, which breed slowly and need years to mature, could be extinct in Africa in the next 50 to 100 years.

poisoning from eating pesticide-laced carcasses caused as many as 60 percent of the vulture deaths recorded since the 1970s.When a large predator such as a lion kills livestock, a farmer will sometimes sprinkle poison on the carcass to kill the predator in retaliation, Vultures usually get to the corpse first. They die after eating the pesticide-laced carcasses intended for lions and other predators. Pesticides are poorly regulated in Africa, and sold as "lion killer" . many farmers don't know what the chemicals are really used for.vultures have largely disappeared from commercial farming areas where pesticide are used

Vultures often collide with the wind turbines and are crushed or are electrocuted by power lines

Vultures are also also targets for poachers, who sell their parts to people who use witchcraft. The birds are known for their tremendous eyesight, and many believe their body parts can be used to see into the future.Their brains are ground to snuff by witch doctors who believe the substance has magical powers.

The scavengers also die after feeding on carcasses left behind by poachers. Illegal hunters poison the corpses to throw off law enforcement, which use circling vultures as a beacon for illegal activity.500 dead vultures were found surrounding a pesticide-laden elephant carcass poachers had poisoned leaving the bodies to rot. terrorists groups are profiting the most from poaching affording them lucrative profits to buy guns and bombs

I will be off the internet on Saturday night. It's family re-union time.

Mom went over by Kim today and brought lunch over for her (Pad Thai) and they had a nice visit. Kim's knee is still sore, and she was not feeling too good. Mom came home after--she was going to go to the store but she decided not to when it started to rain a little. She says she can go to the store anytime now. And she brought me some Pad Thai and rice back--makes a guy happy! Love that stuff!

Beautiful day here and I got a bath and a sunbath both. I saw a big bird in the sky but mom said it was a helicopter. LOL. There is a window above my play gym that sits right beside my condo. Mom has the window sill all cleaned off just for me …well it might be because of me LOL. I like to get up there in the morning when the sun is shining in after I eat my breakfast. I leave out little noises as I watch the wild birds and just to see the pretty day. Once the sun isn’t as bright I usually get on my play gym and begin the day with mom then helping her. “Our paths may change as life goes on but the bond between friends remain ever strong.” Left a vote for you my friend~ hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Busy, busy, busy here the next few days - I think mom is trying to cram the whole summer into just a few days ! Today the folks are visiting some friends in NJ, tomorrow they're going to Saratoga visiting mom's cousin Patty (not actually a cousin - when her parents were first married they lived in a two family house with Patty's family so the two grew up together). The best part of Saturday ? Every year they all go to Saratoga for the Travers for daddy's birthday ! ! Mom is actually going to get to see American Pharoh in person ! ! Then on Sunday mom is going to see aunt Tanya and aunt Rose and aunt Janet !

At least the weather is great and then mom promised to stay home with me ALL day Monday and Tuesday ! I wish you a great day :) I love you ! Cookie

Not a lot happening here. Nice outside, sunny at times, and we hit a high of 73. Nice to have the patio doors open again! Tomorrow will be nice again here, but thunderstorms are supposed to hit later in the evening.

With company being here mom got a bit behind on the household chores so been trying to catch up again. Then she has been doing the spare room bedding and today she did hers. Of course that meant that dad had to help cause mom wanted the mattress flipped and sure cant do that by herself. Dad even helped to put the clean bedding on too and mom just kept quiet and glad he helped . By the time she washed and hung it all out she was tired and was thankful for the extra help. “Our paths may change as life goes on but the bond between friends remain ever strong.” Left a vote for you my friend~ hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

What a great time mom and dad had at the fair yesterday - mom took lots of pictures - some video of the pig races too ! Maybe she'll post those later on FB for everybird to see (just to get in the mood for our next Milonga !) They got to see all the animals (Landon's favorite part was feeding them), he and mom rode a camel (!), they saw a brand spanking new baby calf, and all the antiques. Mom loved that the horticulture theme this year was lights, camera, action so all displays were tv and movie related. There was even a minion made out of daisies ! Daddy loved the food ! har har har ! Landon and his mom left around 4:00 so mom and dad ate and then saw the Doobie Brothers - they're old men now ! YIKES ! Still it was a good show and they did all their old 70's songs . . .

Today we're staying home - mom wants to clean the carpets before heading back to school - they're pretty yucky. She thinks it's my fault . . . I say it's daddy's ! !

  Heya, Chico!
We are so far below the normal temps, Mom had to put on the radiator heater for me! We got to a high of 64. It was dull and overcast all day until around 6, when the sun came out. Mom and I took a nap--and when the sun started to come out a little, I decided I would snore a bit so Mom would wake up. Did it once. Nothing. Did it again, nothing. Tried it again. She made the whistling sound that happens when someone snores. So I did it one more time and she whistled, and then she was laughing. Of course, I had to take a bath after that. Mom says I have more feathers and feather dust, so she knows how good it feels to get clean.

Just another wonderful day with Mom!

OH! The Milwaukee Lion is back! Two sightings so far! It is a mountain lion according to the sighting today. It is in Mequon, which is a suburb to the north/northwest of the city. Both sightings were in the early morning, and were in the same general location (about a 20 minute drive from where Mom lives). The areas are very close to the Little Menomonee River Parkway and the Mequon Nature Preserve. Great areas to hide in, for sure.

Thanks for all the hatchday wishes!! Today was another cool (69) day and cloudy so I didn’t get a sunbath today or yesterday either. Hoping maybe tomorrow will be nicer. Our company left today and now the household is back to normal. I was a bit wound and pestered and spent more time in my condo then normal at first. Finally I was more my normal self and would sit with our company but also spent time on my play gym and ate too so I was left out to play lots more. I had the company convinced by the time they left that I was just the perfect fid and a real sweetie. “Our paths may change as life goes on but the bond between friends remain ever strong.” Left a vote for you my friend~ hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Chico
Michael Vick has just been signed with the steelers football team.

Vick served 21 months in federal prison after he admitted in 2007 that he had operated a dog fighting ring at a farm he owned in Virginia.
Vick admitted in 2007 to keeping dozens of dogs for a dog fighting ring. Federal authorities say many were badly abused and some brutally executed
Federal authorities seized 70 dogs, mostly pit bulls. Many of them showed signs of severe neglect and abuse. Authorities allege he and his friends had brutally executed several other dogs

the disgraced NFL quarterback also neglected his pet birds, allowing one to starve to death and another to go without food and water.
Vick left one exotic bird in its cage to die of starvation and nearly allowed a second to succumb to the same fate. Vick, he had a beautiful pet bird named Junior that he allowed the roam around his mansion.'Mike decided that the home he lived in at the time was too small for someone of his stature purchased a home in the same neighborhood that was more suitable to the growing size of his bank account,'
Weeks later, after he moved into the new house the star football player at his new Atlanta mansion, but Junior the bird was nowhere to be found.
he hadn’t moved everything out of the old house and when he went back over there to check on things, Junior was still there and in his bird cage, dead'
'They had treated Junior like he was just another piece of furniture that they could just set aside and move at a later date.Vick said because he was an Atlanta Falcon player, fans were always trying to give him birds, and so Junior was no big loss.'
a second bird, a Cockatoo called Crystal,was in its cage without food or water at his home. the bird was later adopted even though Vick told her he wanted it back when he got out of prison.

I'm back! My parronts landed in FL during a t-storm and had to run for it (no jetway). They opened the tail of the plane too ... had to get everyone out fast. It was sunny and 86 to 96 degrees ... they loved it! They spent most of their time looking for houses. They found one they liked. Finally on Sunday, everyone reached an agreement and the house was "sold". We leave here in about 3 weeks. I have a couple of pics on the bottom of my page. They came home to non-stop rain and 50 degrees as a high, still raining. Only a few weeks until I'm a beach bird!
