  Heya, Chico!
We did not get rain until around 12:30, and it came down pretty good. Mom was driving to her friend's house, and it was dicey there for a minute or two. We are supposed to get storms tonight--yup, rain is here! Mom can hear it pounding on the roof. And humid? Oh, grease spot is how Mom says she feels. Never did get as warm as they said it would...but boy, that humidity sure did!

Wing hugs coming your way!

We had a hot and humid day here. At 8pm it's 84 and the rain will be here soon. Funny thing, it's warmer here than where we will be living in FL! We have summer but, for how long??? Mom wants to go to the beach but has to take her new car back to the dealer. I will be home resting.

Today was suppose to rain but it missed us here so I got a bath and then out for a sun bath . It was very humid and warm but a bit cloudy. When I go outside for my sun bath Miss Robin comes to visit with me. She gets worms and sometimes puts them on the sidewalk. That is very nice of her but I sure don’t want to eat worms with her. Mom teases and says she thinks Miss Robin is smitten on me. I have Suzi for my girl and that is all I need cause she is one great gal. I guess Miss Robin has babies in the big tree in the yard and maybe she feels a bit scared of me out there so close. “A friend is like a four leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have.” Left a vote for you.

i was so mad at mom today. she took Boo Boo outside and put her on the porch while she was weeding in the yard and left me all alone in the house. i screamed and screamed for mom to come and get me but she didn't. mom says the only time i can be outside is mom is holding me and she didn't have time today.

since mom planned to spend the day weeding and she felt would be safe in her cage on the porch since she was gong to be right near her in the yard. as she opened the front door withBoo Boo cupped in her hand a big deer was standing there. it had meticulously eaten all the flowers off of every one of moms flowers including the plants in containers. when it saw mom come out the front door it ran off and didn't come bcd. why should it. all the flowers had already been eaten.

We had sun and hot today ... in the 80's! It felt like summer. The parronts were busy on the golf course so, I had a good nap. Looks like we might get to 80 on Monday. Is summer really here or is it a tease?

  Heya, Chico!
We are under a bad air advisory all day today. And tomorrow the heat and humidity are back in full force according to the weather geeks. Then it will be back in the upper 60's for most of the rest of the week.

Mom and I had a great day again, just nice and quiet, nothing going on stuff. And the idiots did not shoot off fireworks last night, so that was a first! No boomers to bother me or Mom from our sleep!

I can’t tell time but I sure know when my light is soon going off and its bed time. If mom doesn’t move fast enough I start to complain so she notices its my bed time and I am ready for bed. Last night I was all covered up for the night and then heard lots of boomers but didn’t say anything and kept quiet but it was interfering with my beauty sleep. Then silly mom got the idea of uncovering me to show me the pretty fireworks out the window. I wasn’t about to step up or come out so I didn’t get to see them but I heard the noise and think that was enough. I need all the beauty sleep I can get LOL. “Laughter is an instant vacation” Left a vote for you my friend. Your kissing cousin, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY. mom had me out on the porch while she read the paper. she attached my leash to the porch railing because there was a little more sun in that area. mom was sitting about 3 feet away from me. suddenly mom heard me flying and her heart froze as she looked up. i decided i wanted to sit on mom and not the railing and had tried to fly to mom but the leash want long enough and i fell to the ground. i am ok but it sure scared mom and she will keep me on her from now on.

mom ran to the grocery store for a few things and a big mom turkey with 5 little babies crossed the road right in front of moms car. the little babies ran very fast.

Thank you everybody for BOTD. I had a really good day though we didn’t realize I had gotten BOTD till this evening. Mom cracked an almond for me and also a walnut which I worked on for quite a while and got them both open so that was a prize in itself. Then mom gave me a new toy that I like to clean my beak on.

Today was a pretty day here and finally no rain! Mom went to the trail with dad and when she got back it was time to start supper so I didn’t get a sunbath. Mom says tomorrow is suppose to be nice so I should get a sunbath then I hope. Last night when mom was putting me to bed for the night she showed me out the window and up in the sky was a big ball and mom said it’s the full moon.. We went to the other window and looked at it too and it was right above the tree and looked like it was just sitting there.

I got my toenails and my one primary flight feather trimmed today. The tech said that I was grumbling at her all the while, where I usually am very quiet. I was great on the way home, and did not growl at Mom at all! And of course, I have been velcroed to her pretty much all afternoon. Plus, it is chilly here--sunny, but only in the low, low 60's. What is up with that?

I got a sunbath today though the sun wasn’t shining too bright. I didn’t get a bath before though cause mom thought it was too chilly of 75 plus not sunny it felt colder too. This morning I kept pushing the buttons on my jungle talk toy and it wouldn’t work. It takes mom a while to wake up after she is up in the morning so she didn’t notice it wasn’t working at first. When she did she told me she would put new batteries in it and that would fix it. She took it down stairs with her and batteries in her hand as she wont change them in front of me any more cause the one time she did that I broke the back off one of the jungle talk toys and we had to throw that one away. When she came back up she said it was broke but she had a brand new one for me! Glad she has extras of them and she said she ordered more from Foster and Smith this time too.

  Heya, Chico!
Well, today was overcast all day until the afternoon. Mom says of course--it makes it very hot in the apt. and she has to turn on the air. Of course, it was also very humid outside, too. She did her exercises this morning, and it took her forever to get her hair dry after she did her shower! I have been showing with her--mainly to try to steal some water from the hand held she uses. But she washes my feet with the water, and that is lovely.

Mom had her phone interview with MillerCoors today, and they wanted to see writing samples from Mom. She would not mind this job--it is only for a couple months, which is fine. Three guys were on the phone in the interview! So we will find out if she is going to be working or not. I hope not. She doesn't really care, but the extra money would be nice. Then she could retire. Hehe. She is worried though, as Kim would have to find someone else to take her to the doctors--and that would not be good. Guess we will see what happens.

When mom cleaned my condo last night she noticed my heater wasn’t working. She messed with the cord and plug but it never came on. The night before when mom cleaned my condo it was working though. Mom called Foster and Smith and there is a one year warranty on them and mom bought mine in November of 2013 so the warranty is done. They are on sale now so mom looked at other things also that was on sale and put an order in for the heater and some other things too.

Today was another nice day. But, I had to go to the vet for a recheck. I have one more day of meds and I'm done. Mom filed my bottom beak and the vet was happy with the way it looked. He said I was doing greyt. That sure took up most of the day (150 miles round trip)! Tomorrow we all have to leave the house twice for people to see our house.

Getting closer! 9455 from me today!

Not much going on here today. Mom looked for jobs, applied for one. She has a phone interview for another job tomorrow--which she is not that interested in, but it only runs to the end of September, so that would be okay. She is tired of trying to find 4 jobs a week to apply for--they are all the same one but with different companies. And then she worked on her friends Google Plus web page and got that done. And Mom and I just snuggled a lot.

Last night on the milonga we had a heck of a time with BC so we didn’t stay long. We had more rain again today but don’t think it was quite as bad as it was yesterday. The temperature only got to 66 here today so sure no sunbath again for me! Mom has different solar lights outside and one is by our drive way. The other day when dad cut the grass he told mom it was full of water and she emptied it out so guess she will be doing that again soon too. The lights arent very bright with out much sun though.

What a night ... BC was acting terrible and our internet crashed! I missed most of the milonga and had to go back and read the blogs.
Today was nice, sunny and low 70's ... it spiked up to 78 for a short time. Mom hopes that we might get to eat out on the patio on Sunday, that would be nice.
Thanks every bird for all the votes, it was very nice to make it to the 25K.

  HI CHICO
well once again its raining. we have had rain 24 out of 29 days the month of june. i have never seen so many mushrooms growing in the yard of every color of the rainbow.
yesterday mom was picking up sticks in the yard while Boo Boo was sitting in her outdoor cage . mom hadn't harnessed me yet to take me outside and i was patiently waiting for mom to come and get me. mom went to grab a stick and it moved because it was a small blacksnake. from the black snake size mom assumes it could squeeze in between the bars of Boo Boos outside cage which would cause Boo Boo to have a heart attack from anxiety if nothing else.

when we first started with the IV fluids for our doggie we were using a higher gauge needle and it was hurting doggie and then afterwards she was bleeding. the vet has now given us a lower gauge needle and it doesn't hurt the doggie and she isn't nearly as upset when we give her the fluids and there isn't any blood now. doggie is much more alert and now drinking on her own. we just got a new food from the vet for doggies with kidney problems from science diet and doggie really likes the food. we will continue with the iv fluids until doggies appointment with vet to check her levels to see how she is doing next thursday.

love Cori

This morning I was sitting on my perch in the kitchen window and mom was making my breakfast and dad was in the kitchen with us too. Mom looked out the window and saw a big bird with another small one following in the sky. She thought it was a duck cause it was big and dad said that is a crow with it and look how small it looks compared to that big bird. The big bird landed on the house roof down on the back street and then we saw it was stork. It stayed a while and then flew off but we couldn’t see it from the direction it went. When moms kids were young they had a pond and sometimes storks would land there but that is the first time she ever saw one here. Maybe it was suppose to deliver a baby somewhere and was lost LOL. “No matter what the weather might be, I can always count on chatting with my friends on BC.“ Your kissing cousin, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

we had another full day of rain today. only one day this week when it didn't rain. no thunder and wind so that was good. more rain for tonight tomorrow and saturday. mom and dad are giving doggie fluids iwth a IV line and that is taking up a lot of time. our doggie had quit eating and the vet said it was because she was dehydrated and her electrolytes were off. they wanted to keep doggie for 7 days to administer the fluids but we felt doggie would not do well in a small cage all by herself. last night she peed in her bed and mom went out today and bought her diapers and pee pads in case she has another accident. doggie is now drinking and eating and much more alert but the IV fluids must be given for another week. vet said its possible she might need fluids for the rest of her life.
