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.
It was another night of internet problems. I'm finally on .... hope it's ok now.

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)

Today was spent just hanging out with my parronts and chewing up new toys. It's still dark, gloomy and cold here. Dad put the patio furniture away when mom was at Parrot Palooza. That's a sign of winter for us!

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)

Today when mom gave me my bowl of fresh fruit I started eating and mom always puts a variety of fruits in it for me. Well today there was pomegrante seeds in there! Ohhh I love those pomegrante seeds so much and sure picked them out fast too. I don’t know how I missed them when mom got home yesterday with the groceries but I suspect she put them away first and that is how I didn’t see them. I love to watch the juice fly when I bite into one of them too LOL. “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)

I'm back!
Well, mom is back and still isn't caught up with everything. It took her 10 hours to drive home on Tuesday in the rain. Mom was gone for seven days and dad took good care of me. She was tired but, I had to see what see what she bought for me! That is after I gave her my greeting. I've been in toy heaven chewing everything in sight! I heard her say that the big toy is for Christmas. Do I have to be good that long??? I also have new perches and some tasty treats. Oh yes, I'm a velcro bird again. She had a greyt time with all the BC moms and hopes to do it again some day. Maybe we birds can go next time????

Mom went to pick up a few groceries today. When she put the groceries in the kitchen I flew over to help her. I really wanted to see what she bought but not much interested me in those bags today. There is a bag of walnuts in the freezer and mom let me pick one of my own out of the bag while we were putting things away. However that one was not enough and I of course wanted more but mom said I had enough for the day. I wish I could open that freezer door and I sure would get my crop full of them nuts LOL. “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)

  Hello Chico~
I hope you are having a great day! It's still wet and windy up here but that is the way it is suppose to be this time of the year.
I'm helping mom get some cooking done since she goes back to work tonight and has to work 8 days straight. Having some meals done ahead of time really helps out.
Mom got the computer working this morning and so far so good! She deleted some programs and that may have been the problem. I know! It's a miracle that she figured any of this out!! Ian put Avast security on it and mom started to notice every time it would freeze and have to restart that it would say Avast had updated. It must have been blocking just about every site mom went to. Jennifer's desktop was not doing it so mom deleted it and another program dad put on and it's working this morning.
Dad already ordered the new parts to upgrade and they will be here sometime next week. Hopefully dad will be home sometime next week too so he can put it together. It's really not that hard but mom would rather dad do it so she doesn't mess anything up!
I do hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

Today mom was working on some baby blankets. She said she will make these and have them later for the great grands when they come along which will be a long time from now hopefully. Mom said if she doesn’t make them now by the time that time does roll around she will never remember how to make them then. Now moms back is aching and she is sitting with the heated corn bag on it and though she doesn’t like to take a pain pill she is thinking she is going to need to tonight. In the morning she doesn’t move fast after taking them but at least it helps the pain. Mom says it’s the perils of old age LOL. “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)

Mom was busy trying to figure out this one crochet stitch and playing with that when the door bell rang and of course I yelled loudly so mom would know someone was here. We don’t have a dog so somebirdy has to let mom know right? Mom just figured the mailman left something on the porch and always rings the bell when she does that. Then it rang again and mom remembered it was Veterans Day and no mail today and hurried to put me in my condo to answer the door then. Here it was moms one cousin and her daughter. They sure did talk a lot and the daughter makes greeting cards also so mom showed then her craft room. When they came up I flew onto moms cousin and made myself quite comfy on her shoulder but mom soon took me off since moms cousin isn’t used to fids. I was content to just watch them till they were ready to leave and then I had to go back in my condo till they were gone. “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)

Today was another busy day here. Mom was wanting to work on some kind of thing with material but didn’t get much done. Her and dad left to go watch moms cousin next door and her husband renew their 25th wedding vows. The place they had it was an old barn type building with two sides open on it and a fire pit inside by the one open side. A beautiful lake up on the hill from the building and the trees are just gorgeous this time of year here too. Moms cousin son DJ ed for the event too. The parronts enjoyed it very much and they were back home in a few hours so wasn’t all that bad for me either. “Todays are like pistachios. They go fast. So pay attention to today.

Sure happy to see BC is still working and up. Today mom cleared off the porch of all the summer decorations she always puts up. The plants are still out there but am sure it wont be long they will be back in the house too. Mom took my outside cage (Chi chi old cage) down stairs to the game room so guess that tells you I wont be sitting out side for sunbaths any more till next spring or summer. It doesn’t warm up (if at all) till afternoon and then just a couple of hours and even then its too cold for me to go out. At least I can sit down stairs in it while mom crafts and sews so that is good. “Todays are like pistachios. They go fast. So pay attention to today. It is important and delicious“.

We are having lots of trouble with our internet server and suppose to get a new modem in 3 days so hoping that will help so will try to get on when its working ok. Skin sis came up today for a while. The grand was in school but skin sis thought things should be pretty calm since she cant do much in gym class with the cast on her arm now. The teacher told her the grade she had will be the grade she ends up with since she cant do much in gym class now anyway. Know the grand is pretty upset cause she loves gym class but when the cast comes off then she will be able to do the class again. Just has to wait. “Todays are like pistachios. They go fast.

When mom came home from the grocery store today she had lots of bags and while she was putting stuff away I flew over to see what all she got. Mom showed me she got a spagetti squash and when she got the groceries all away she cooked it. When it cooled off she gave me some of it and I really like spagetti squash. I cant eat regular pasta cause its enriched and makes me toe tap but the spagetti squash is ok for me. Mom usually mixes it in with my bean/ rice mix. Mom cut it up in servings and froze it so I will have it a good while so that is good. “Todays are like pistachios. They go fast. So pay attention to today. It is important and delicious“.

  Hi Chico
mom left the house today with her long hair flowing behind her and when she came home i didn't recognize her and she scared me because all her hair was cut off. mom thinks she now looks stupid but felt with all that long hair she actually looked like a witch before.

Old weather superstitions, proverbs and wives' tales are embedded in our culture and there is a lot of wisdom in these old wives' tales.

"Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning.
Red sky at night, sailors delight."
That red sky at night and morning ditty is a classic example. A red sky at night means the atmosphere is full of dust particles, an indication of both a high pressure system and stable air. In other words, good weather is about to follow. But a red sunrise on the eastern horizon indicates high water content in the atmosphere and a storm is on its way.

"If there is a halo 'round the sun or moon, then we can all expect rain quite soon." that halo is a refraction of light through the ice crystals in high cirrus clouds. Cirrus clouds are among the first to appear ahead of a storm front.

Some sayings are kind of half-true. Here's one example: "No weather is ill if the wind is still." Calm conditions indicate a high pressure system when precipitation and clouds are less likely to develop. But this ties to another common saying: "the calm before the storm." Calm conditions can exist just before a storm, so don't count on staying dry all day long just because there's no wind.

"When windows won't open, and the salt clogs the shaker, the weather will favor the umbrella maker." wood swells when there's moisture in the air. Salt absorbs moisture, too. If your door is sticking or your salt won't shake, the air is damp and there's a greater chance of rain or other precipitation.

cats only lick themselves during fair weather. That's because moist air is more conducive to electricity. No cat wants to get a static shock on its tongue!
