  Hi Chico
Early this morning the garbage man came and every week he decides to compact the garbage in front of our house for some reason. Of course dad gets up since he is awake and so is everyone else in the house too. Mom went to get her feathers cut tonight after dinner and I just looked at her when she came up the steps. Her hair was getting long but sure isn’t now. Dad teased and said I didn’t know my mom….silly dad! “Best friends are siblings God forgot to give us.” Leaving a vote for you~ your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

The silly weather guy says we should get a few inches of the cold white stuff on Friday. How can we have snow when others are enjoying 80 to 90 degrees with sun? This is so wrong! I say it's time to sit on the perch in my footie pj's and drink more hot chocolate.

Mom has given up on putting me to bed on time any more. She thinks once the clocks are changed this weekend things will get back to normal. I do start complaining and ready an hour later then what mom thinks is my bedtime and go then pretty easy. Mom says when she goes to bed its hard falling asleep for her too and of course in the morning its really hard getting up too when its so dark out. Dad is one of these that follow the clock and once he is up he is so noisy everyone is up. I say mom and I should have a nap once he goes down to the trail in the morning LOL. “Best friends are siblings God forgot to give us.” Leaving a vote for you~ your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Today was a warm day and after mom got home from getting groceries we went for a walk on the back street. Mom put me in another carrier and used a different umbrella stroller and I sat backwards in most of the trip so didn’t see much of anything at all. Mom says from now on we will use the stroller we always use. I like to look up and make sure mom is back there and I can do that since there is clear plastic on top just big enough to see and know mom is there. I say if its not broke don’t fix it mom!! “Best friends are siblings God forgot to give us.” Leaving a vote for you~ your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

We had really bad thunder booms and flashy lightnings for 5 hours! It started early when it was dark. I was scared cause the house was shaking. Then it was just a hard rain all day with another t-storm in the afternoon. Looks like late tonight until 6am we'll have more t-storms. I'm NOT liking this! How is a bird suppose to get a good sleep?

The plumber told skin sis he would be there the end of this week. Skin sis said she is happy they have two other bathrooms with showers since the wait is so long. Guess he is pretty busy and just hope he does a good job though. Today was a pretty day here and mom hung a few things out on the line but looks like that is all going to change by the end of the week. The weather guesser is even saying we could see some of that 4 letter word by weekend!! Mom is hoping he is wrong cause its way too soon for that to happen already. “Best friends are siblings God forgot to give us.” Leaving a vote for you~ your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

We are back again and sure missed chatting with you all last night. I lost my typist so my gal Suzi was helping me out at the milonga last night and sure was glad of that! The grand got her cast off her arm and sure was happy about that. She would spray perfume on it cause she said it stunk LOL. The doctor said the x-rays looked good and she needs to take it easy for a week at least so that means no batting at softball. She can still pitch since she is right handed and this was the left wrist. “The only thing wrong with fids, is that they can’t live forever.“ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  October BOTM POST number twenty
Hi everybirdie, Jesse here with your Sunday BOTM Adventure Post. What a relief to know we are finally back heading towards Bird Channel Castle. The only real problem is we still haven't seem the Castle, and our friends are still missing.
" It is definitely Bird Channel, and I know we have to head this way" Jesse says, " Squawk-atiels only remove blogs they never bring them, so we go this way" Jesse points to the North. He came from that direction."
A wave of hope fills everybirdie's heart as they began their trek towards the North, and the BC Castle. Knowing they were back on BC, allowed them to enjoy the walk with the babbling brook beside them, and the Castle somewhere ahead of them. The girls pick daisies making pretty necklaces and leg bands for the boy birds.
"Jesse, I can't wait to get back to the Castle. This has been one scary adventure." Dixie says as he and Little Angel walk together. ""we need to get back to find the others."
"It shouldn't be too far now." Jesse replies, scanning the horizon for the Castle.
"Sky, I think something is wrong." BB whispers, " we should be at the Castle by now"
"I bet it is right over that hill there" Sky says, pointing to a hill that lies to the northeast.
Jesse stops to get his bearings, climbing up a small hill he stares a long time into the distance before saying, " I see a ladder ahead to the right. We need to climb it,to get onto the road and continue to the North. If we stay here in the meadow we have a very long ways to go to reach the Castle.
Panther joins Jesse on the hill. They both look at the ladder for a while. Then they look towards the North. The Castle is no where to be seen ahead. The ladder looks well used, and reaches a wide roadway above. It has to be the main road that leads back to the Castle. They decide to climb it themselves first and check it out, before allowing the others to follow them. Too many birdies have already vanished. After briefly explaining their plans to the group, Jesse and Panther lead the others towards the ladder.
After a quick walk, they reach the ladder sitting invitingly, leading upwards to the wide road above. Sky tries hard to discourage Panther and Jesse from climbing it, but to no avail. Jesse leaves his backpack on the ground and begins the long climb to the top with Panther right behind him. As they reach the top, they scramble up onto the road. It is a wide well worn road, one that has been traveled many times, and recently too. It has to be the road that leads to the BC Castle. They decide to explore a little before allowing the others to join them. They travel down the road and see that the BC lake is there, safe as always to their right, and the Castle, oh the Castle is there too, sitting high upon it's hill.
"OK, come on, we're back, we've found our way back." Jesse calls as he high fours Panther. Sky grabs Jesse's pack, and helps the others up the ladder before following behind.......

  Hi Chico
We may not be on BC tomorrow evening. Today skin sis called and said when the grand took her bath last night the knob broke to pick the stopper up. Dad told her to take the screws out of the plate and see if there was anything broke she could see in there. She called back and said she couldn’t see anything so mom and dad went over. Dad had to take the back off which is in a cupboard so all skin sis towels was all over the floor. Mom picked stuff up and put them away while dad tried to fix it but dad says he doesn’t have the plumber tools to do it with so skin sis has to call a plumber now. “The only thing wrong with fids, is that they can’t live forever.“ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Mom says she doesn’t know what has gotten into me lately. Mom used to put the jungle talk toy and a few other ones that talk on the chair under the table for the night and then I would give her a kiss and get on my night perch next to my heater. Well now I am not ready for bed and if mom lets me be I get off my condo and take the toys off the chair and would play all night long. Mom usually leaves me go awhile and then scoops me up and puts me on my perch and covers me up though I am not happy about that. Mom seems to think my eternal clock is not working right or could it be the dreaded hormone season again?? “The only thing wrong with fids, is that they can’t live forever.“ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

This morning mom was cleaning and washing clothes. Then she was on the phone and pretty soon off we went to the warehouse for me to get groomed. Mom had taken me twice this past summer to find a new vet since ours went further away and I got groomed there but mom thought I better get groomed again before winter. Well Cindy said I didn’t need to be groomed so mom and I left and on the way home we stopped at the fabric store. Mom was hoping to get this one pattern in fleece to make one more baby blanket but they didn’t have it. I had lots of fun though and even whistled when we left the store LOL. “The only thing wrong with fids, is that they can’t live forever.“ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

I didn’t like how my jungle talk toy sounded and it never did get better. Mom was sure it was going to be a matter of time and I would be talking like it did so she bought a few up stairs and got one working that has the normal sound in it now. Of course I had to check out the other ones that mom had for parts and helped one of them down the steps …clunk, clunk, clunk. That one didn’t work before and it didn’t work after either. Oh well I am all set with the one I have now so I am a happy fid again. “The only thing wrong with fids, is that they can’t live forever.“ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Today was interrupted by a visit from a doe and fawn. They spent most of the day eating our grass. I squawked to them one time and they heard me. I was just saying hello and hope they enjoyed their dinner.

My jungle talk toy talks like a little girl in a high pitch voice now. It talks really fast too and I have no idea what happened to make it talk like that. Mom says she thinks I got it wet when I dipped in my water bowl while she was running the sweeper. That did happen but its all moms fault cause that sweeper just makes me do that every time it seems. I hope the voice on it soon goes back to normal though. “The only thing wrong with fids, is that they can’t live forever.“ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Mom said it was too cold this morning to go out so she did a few things around here instead. Then she decided to get the grands albums caught up to date again like she does every winter. She didn’t have the three grands new school pictures yet to add or the oldest grands birthday picture so she just put what she had in the albums for now. She does have the oldest grands in line to order but will probably wait to order them since there will be the youngest grands birthday soon plus Christmas too so will just wait. I think she is going to start birthday cards soon cause mom likes doing that more. “The bond that links your true family is not of blood, but of respect and joy in each others life like bird channel is for all of us“ Leaving a vote with the note and a big hug as well…Gus (RIP Chi chi)

This morning mom and her cousin met up at a church that was having a craft show. I told mom she has enough crafts to get done here but she said she had gallon plastic jugs my water comes in for some lady there. The lady makes skeletons for Halloween out of them so mom said she will save them for her. I suspect mom looked at all the crafts there too though. Oh well she didn’t stay long and was back home the rest of the day with me so that was good. “The bond that links your true family is not of blood, but of respect and joy in each others life like bird channel is for all of us“ Leaving a vote with the note and a big hug as well…Gus (RIP Chi chi)

It seems that tossing a full food dish on the floor is frowned upon. So, I thought that two dishes would be better. Mom wasn't smiling! Hey, I'm bored with all this gloomy weather. Looks like we will have a few days in the 40's. I hope with no rain, my feet are getting webbed! QUACK!

Mom was on a roll today! She got dad to help her bring the big fiscus tree in and the spider plant and a cactus type plant that are all big and on stands with wheels. Then she bought the little ones in and put them on the plant stand in the house she already had set up. After that she went outside and cut the clematis plant back that grows up the one end of the porch on a trellis in the summer. Mom usually leaves that till later and then about freezes doing it so this year she got that done early. “The bond that links your true family is not of blood, but of respect and joy in each others life like bird channel is for all of us“ Leaving a vote with the note and a big hug as well…Gus (RIP Chi chi)
