  Hi Chico & Merlin
T'was the night before Christmas, when all through the tree,
the birdies and parrots were all filled with glee,
The clutches were snuggled in their down feathered nests,
while vision of flight, sent them all soaring west.

Fresh millet sprays had been hung with great care,
with hopes that "Old Scarlet" (Parrot St. Nick) soon would be there.
The Conures and Amazons had all settled down,
but those crazy cockatoos were still hopping around.

When high in the tree tops, a ruckus arose,
I thought I should check, just to see what goes.
Peeking through branches, leaves lit by the moon,
I thought I was dreaming it looked just like noon!

When what to my wondering eyes should there be,
but a flock of eight Grey's with Red Tails shining landing in the next tree.
Gliding behind, holding reins in his beak,
I spied the red bird, with a blush on his cheek.

He whistled and squawked, calling each one by name,
buoyed by a breeze, as closer they came.
Now Talon, now Josey, now Dayo and Ana Grey,
on Corky, on Misty, on Gilda and Gracie.

To the top of the palms, to the top of trees tall,
now fly away, fly away, fly away all!
I watched as they circled the green jungle maze,
and thought for a second I'd lost sight, I was in such a daze!

But, soon they appeared, drawing a basket behind,
which was filled with new toys of the bright, shiny kind.
Back to my branch I climbed mighty quick,
I'd heard of Old Scarlet, surely this was no trick!

He carefully perched by an old snoring grey,
while I fretted and wondered if he'd get scared away.
He wasn't even distracted when the parakeet sneezed.
He hung the new whirlygigs, sighed and looked pleased.

Standing proud and quite stately, he filled me with trust;
but I felt ashamed, his feathers were covered with cockatoo dust.
He paused, just a moment, fluffed and preened in a stoop,
turned around slowly, saying "At least it's not poop."

Then he laughed out loud--like a real human being.
I blinked my eyes twice, at what I was seeing.
He picked up a peanut and tossed it my way.
"Here's a small Christmas treat. Don't get spoiled, okay?"

He strutted back to the basket, put a strap round each wing,
chirped at his flock, who started to sing.
Their tones were so perfect, they were magically dear.
I was sure it was Memorex or a choir quite near.

The melody lingered, for a moment or two,
but I caught one last glimpse, before they flew.
His eyes were so merry, twinkling with impish delight.
His charming ways had brightened this long Christmas night.

As upward they soared, toward the golden round moon,
I heard every word, he joyfully crooned.
"Merry Christmas to all, peace, joy and cheer.
Be good little birdies. I'll see you next year!"

  Heya, Chico!
Well, it was another disappointing Packer loss today. Mom says they just were playing on autopilot--no heart in the play, for the better part of 3 quarters. By the time they showed sparks of energy, it was too little, too late. Mom grumbled quite a bit about that.

It was a nice sunny day here, but chilly. We did get to a high of 53. Mom cut up my papaya and gosh, that was so yummy (and I did not mind her having some, as it was a nice big fat papaya). She had picked up a small slice of seedless watermelon, but that was sort of rubbery, she said. I did get the rind and had a greyt time chewing that up. Gotta keep the beak in shape, you know?

Otherwise, it was just a nice, quiet Sunday with Mom. The best kind!

Wing hugs coming your way!

  Heya, Chico!
Happy Halloween!

Mom ran into some issues with the puter today--specially, the sound. She hates how Win10 seems to have messed up the sound...not that it has a thing to do with not having the lovely Bose Companion speakers that someone chewed thru one of the cords...Mom says yes, they were old, but they were perfect sound-wise. If she could have fixed them, she would have. We have some small speakers now and those are okay, but she had to uninstall the program and then reinstall the program to get any sound above a whisper.

Ah, we are thrilled that American Pharoah won the Breeders Cup! And in style, too!! Had to say that Mom was so happy, and so sad at the same time, as he won't be racing again. And she says that it is highly possible she will never see another Triple Crown winner in her lifetime. Much less one who won the TC and the Breeders cup.

Today? Oh it was raining all day, and with the damp, 47 did not feel too warm. Mom ran to the market and got our tomatoes. But she did not stick around there that long--it was just miserable out! Tomorrow thru Wednesday we should be in the 60's. Now that is a lot better, that is for sure!!

  Heya, Chico!
Ah...it was kinda nice today, with the sun out! Got to 53, and I sure wanted to go by Mom when she ran some stuff over to Grandpa, but she did not think it would be warm enough for me to run into the house when she did. It actually was decent--no wind today. It looks like the warm weather is going to come back here next week, but not anything warm enough for me to go out with Mom for a walk. Guess I can't complain--have been out so much this past summer, but always love to be out and about with Mom. Can't believe near 70 in November, though.

  Heya, Chico!
It was icky out today with the grey sky and the wind and the cold. We got to a high of 44 today, but it felt lots colder due to the wind. Gosh, it howled here last night. Mom says it sounded like the middle of winter! Mom went to get groceries today and got money for her old cell phone. That was pretty neat to get the gift card at Best Buy, too. She got a small heater for the bathroom (no heat in it!) and Jurassic World DVD. She has money left, too. I wanna see the movie--check out our ancestors, you know?

Supposed to be in the upper 60's to near 70 on Monday-Wednesday. Indian Summer?

  Heya, Chico!
It was rainy here today on and off all day. Mom and I slept til 9:30 this morning--can you believe that?! Would have been up lots earlier but it was so dark and overcast, so Mom says she took advantage of the weather to catch up on her zzzz's. Actually, she stayed up watching the first game of the World Series--yowsa, what a LONG game. Good though. We like the Royals, and are rooting for them. Their manager was our Brewers manager at one time, and he was also a catcher for the Brewers. Good guy. Anyway, that game did not get over until after midnight, so Mom definitely got to bed super late!

Tomorrow she will be going to see if she can get more money for her old phone at Best Buy. If she does, she gets a gift card from them and she wants to pick up a small heater for the bathroom, and then speakers for the computer. Then she has grocery shopping to do, cuz there is a bunch of stuff on special that she uses.

Wing hugs comin' atcha!

  Heya, Chico!
So Mom spent the day on the phone with the the fund manager she has to get her money to cover the health insurance. Then she played with her new phone. She had to make sure she was using the right one to transfer her stuff, as they are both very similar in size. The old one weighs more. Now she has to see what kind of money she can get for the old one.

And me? I napped on Mom and then shoved my beak in her face so she would give me head scritches. Not shy one bit, am I? It got to 55 here, and it is going down. They were talking about the dreaded 4 letter word (S.N.O.W.) tomorrow night--flurries are possible. NO NO NO! Way too early!

Wing hugs coming atcha, and to your Mom, too!

  Heya, Chico!
We wish that more birdies had come to the party--it was really awesome!! Can't believe how bad I was at bobbing for apples, can you? Hulk sure was a pro!

Mom spent the day doing a major refreshing all the wood in the house--wiping down all the stuff with Murphy's oil soap. It is a much more elaborate dusting, which she hates to do. I supervised from her shoulder. Then she spent part of the day reviewing health insurance plans on Healthcare.gov. Her COBRA has a low deductible but the coinsurance is high, so she is not thrilled by that. The plans on Healthcare.gov are not that cheap either. She has no idea what she is going to do...she hates the hassle of the government site but they have a better plan that is a little cheaper. UGH! Then she helped her manager at the apt. figure out what he needed to do with his insurance. Gotta say the folks at healthcare.gov are helpful, and very nice--at least the ones Mom has encountered.

That was enough for one day, Mom says. They did work on the freeway that is outside our windows last night. Woke Mom up at 1:35 AM with thumping and beeping and more thumping. Ugh. Two nights in a row. Mom is beat!

That would be awesome to go to a movie! Lizzie tells Merlin.

We are still here, but Mom wanted to get me in my house for the night and then washed my dishes.

We loved the party, just wished more birdies were able to show up! We are so glad we did.

But think it is time to call it a night. Thank you for having such a greyt time--and please come on the BC more often if your Mom can!!!
