  Hi Chico
Some people were wanting to know how to play Christmas with the Rights that mom plays with the grands and family so here it is:
CHRISTMAS WITH THE RIGHTS

Everyone sits in a circle holding the gift he or she bought with them for the Christmas box. Someone reads the story below, reading slowly enough for the gifts to be passed. Every time the word Right is read, everybody passes his gift to the right.Every time the word left is read, everybody passes to the left. The gift each person is holding when the story endsis the gift they keep.

Christmas is almost here, and Mother Right was finishing baking. Father Right, Sue Right and Billy Right returned from their last minute Christmas shopping. There's not much left to be done said Father Right as he came into the kitchen. Did you leave the basket of food at the church ? Asked Mother Right. I left it right where you told me said father Right. I'm glad my shopping is done said Billy Right I don't have any money left. The hall telephone rang and Susan Right left to answer it. She rushed back and told the family Aunt Tillie Right left a package for us on Grandma Rights porch. I'll go over there now and get it she said as she left in a rush. Father Right left the kitchen and bought in the Christmas tree. By the time Susan Right returned Mother Right, Father Right and Billy Right had begun to trim the tree. The entire Right family sang carols as they finished decorating. Then they left all the presents arranged under the tree and went to bed hoping they had selected the right gifts for their family. Now look at your right and wish all your friends and family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Now isn't that the right thing to do? That's all I have left to say except I hope you have the right present for your self, because that's all that's left to our story, except to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year~isn't that right??

Mom just buys little things for how many is in the family and wraps them up and takes them to them and they play the game while mom reads the story. Hope you enjoy it.

The two day rain got rid of most of the snow but, we still have some and more coming on Wednesday. Glad to be rid of the icy roads. I don't know about you but, I'm so stressed with this Santa Bird watching me all the time. I had a non-stop two hour scream session this morning. Mom couldn't take it and threaten to give me away! I finally calmed down with my peppermint hot chocolate. WHEW, that was a close call. How many more days do I have to be good???

Today was warm around 40 but it sure was dull and dreary day. We never got rain here but when you went out side the humidity was so high it felt like you got wet. Mom stayed home all day doing her chores and washing clothes so I was happy with that. I did get up on the window sill behind my condo and watched the wild birds. Mom says I get a tad loud when I do that but it is exciting LOL. “One small crack doesn’t mean you are broken, it means you were put through the test and you didn’t fall apart.” Leaving a vote for you my friend~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

It was a "hot" day of 42 with lots of fog. The good part is the ice on the roads has melted. Now tonight, we have rain thru Tuesday night and then back to cold and snow. Don't put away the winter gear or hot chocolate, it's not even officially winter yet. It's like a sauna here ... LOL!

  Hi Chico
Today mom left early to go visit with skin brother and his family. The youngest grand will turn eleven next week so mom wanted to make sure he had his birthday card she made him and his birthday money. Of course this is the time of year mom drags the birthday jug down too so they can all pick out a handful of change. The jug is a gallon jug you get pretzels in so have to bring the hand up out of the jug a certain way but the middle child always does the best with the most change. Guess she knows how to do it LOL. Then mom gave them their Christmas presents also. They want to play the Right Family game so mom wrapped up 5 gifts and will take them down next time to play that with them. Roses are red, Violets are blue, I just left a vote for you! Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

In the fall there is an apple festival not far from our house and the parronts usually go every year. They buy the fresh apples and apple cider and bring it home. This year they bought two gallons of apple cider and froze one . Mom just took that one out of the freezer and mom says its better now then it was when she bought them but I think she is full of apples LOL.

Today was a no snow no sun just cold day. They say the snow will be back on Tuesday night. I understand that many birds will not have a white Christmas. Therefore I'm offering our snow to any bird who wants it. Have a warm and cozy night.

Mom gets behind and then wonders how it happened. I cant tell her how it all happens. In the morning she chats with skin sis a while and then she sits and reads the paper while she eats breakfast and sits longer then she should too. Then she starts 3 projects at once and tries to do all at that same time instead of doing one and finishing it. Of course this gets supper way behind then showers are later and poof before she knows it she is going to bed. She says tomorrow she is going to change things around so we will see LOL.

The BC has been very slow and jumpy for us with the squawk page of course.
We had another day with some sun and no snow. What is going on? I'm liking this! Our roads are still ice but the highway is ok.
Today, I helped mom with the Christmas cards. She says I did a good job. I stepped on each one ... hehehe.

Now every birdy knows I don’t usually chew things up and it was Chi chi that enjoyed chewing paper up so much. Well today dad laid the mail on the dining room table and had a five dollar bill in his hand at the same time, When he went into the office later he remembered that five dollar bill and thought he dropped it down stairs. Yep there I was on the floor where the five dollar bill had flew when I flew on to the table. I only chewed the one corner out a little bit so if you ever find that five dollar bill you know I had it first LOL. Roses are red, Violets are blue, I just left a vote for you!

No snow today and we had sun! Last month we had 54 inches of snow and not a whole lot this month so far, yay! It was shopping day for mom. She came home with a lot of packages and wouldn't let me see them. What's with that? I think I'll help her with the cards tomorrow.

Sometimes when mom goes in to the bathroom to brush her teeth I go in with her. She has this toothbrush that spins and makes noise and I try to get her to brush my beak. Mom says I don’t have teeth but she turns it on so I can watch it spin. Mom lets me use the blow dryer for my feathers and I think I should be able to use the tooth brush on my beak too.

I went down stairs with mom while she did a few cards today. I sit in Chi chi old cage down there and mom left the door open like she usually does. Today though I was on top of the cage and flying over to help mom for some reason. Mom set me on the back of the chair she usually sits on but I didn’t stay there either so I just sat on moms shoulder. Mom said we weren’t going to be down there long anyway since she was just going to do a few cards and she had to get supper soon. I think I helped her a lot cause it didn’t take us long.

Yesterday it was nice and sunny right away in the morning. The sun being out sure makes it seem warm out but mom said it was cold though the sun felt good. The filters needed cleaned on the air cleaner and she did them in the sun cause it was too cold to do them in the shade. Now today the clouds are back and looks like rain this week after today too. At least its not snow yet so that is good. Bet it wont be long though. Roses are red, Violets are blue, I just left a vote for you! Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

It was a very relaxing Sunday. But tonight, the snow starts up again for two days. Looks like a good time to decorate the tree. I will be singing carols and helping mom with the placement of the decorations. Soon, Santa Bird will be here and of course, I'll leave him some peppermint hot chocolate!

There was a bird show today that mom sometimes goes to. It usually is here three times a year and mom went the other times this year. Today she decided to skip the bird show since the Christmas traffic out that way would be pretty congested and I really don’t need any thing. Usually mom doesn’t have intentions of buying anything but always sees something she thinks I will like or use. Most times I don’t like it as well as mom hopes. Mom does buy online when its something she knows I will use, need or like. I had cuddle time with mom then all day long which was nice. “A smile happens in a flash but the memory can last a lifetime.” Leaving a vote for you…Your friend,, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Dad was in the kitchen helping mom with the dishes and I landed on him and went into the office room with him after that. I thought dad would be out soon but he wasn’t. Mom was still in the kitchen and pretty soon I flew onto her and she figured dad bought me out so far and I flew the rest of the way. Later she asked dad and he said nope I took off and flew the whole way out to the kitchen which was the first time I have ever done that. Its hard to make the left out of the door into the hall and mom was surprised I could do that though Chi chi did it all the time. Its easier for the little fids though I think . “A smile happens in a flash but the memory can last a lifetime.” Leaving a vote for you…Your friend,, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hello Chico~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Lots of cleaning and some cooking going on here. Kind of boring really but I have a new toy in the play cage to keep me occupied.
Mom put the Trans Siberian Orchestra CD on for us to listen to. She just love the Christmas Canon. She love the Canon and this version of it is very beautiful! I'm enjoying it. The new computer does not have the same music program as the old one so mom has not figured out how to get more music on her MP3 player! Ian gave mom his old IPod since he got a smart phone and it does everything the Ipod does. Now mom has to figure out how to use it! She can turn it on and off! So far that's about it!Hahahahahaha It's rather embarrassing to have a mom who is so clueless when it comes to technology!
You enjoy your day and I do hope it's perfect!

Today we had lots of rain here but yesterday morning we had such a heavy frost at first it looked like snow! Oh well at least its not snow yet but know its just a matter of time. Last night I went to bed earlier then I usually do and figured staying up late I don’t really miss anything but my beauty sleep. Mom was wondering if I would give her a rough time tonight but I didn’t and was ready for bed on time. “A smile happens in a flash but the memory can last a lifetime.” Leaving a vote for you…Your friend,, Gus (RIP Chi chi)
