  Hi Phoebe
V4U today. I would like to thank you for all of your votes. My Pinata Party will be taking place all day long today at the castle. Each bird can decide what goodies they would like placed inside of their pinata, and they can take one home with them when they leave. Mayo and Tulip will be busy filling the pinatas for all of the guest birds today. Ideas for the pinata filling include walnuts, almonds, millet and the like. For those birds who do not like pinatas, there will be small size shredders as a substitute gift to take home. Have fun at the castle pinata party, and enjoy! Your friend, Dandy

Come visit me, Mayo, Dandy & Marigold.

And Harpo leaves the mound laughing all the way. He knows what’s going to happen. Rosie steps up and has a good stance…..”STRIKE 1!” Everyone looks at Budgie because he’s got such a great Ump voice. Harpo goes up and has Rosie choke up on her bat. She hits the ball and makes first base easily. Rosebud eyes her wondering if she’s a base stealer. She’s not. Ernie gets a base hit and Elise runs up and gives him a hug. Punkin reminds her that he’s on the other team. Then Punkin checks out Noah’s stance. “Oh he knows how to play. Ike’s been playing with him.” Punkin throws a curve ball. “STRIKE 1” “hehehe” “STRIKE 2!” “Punkin eyes Harpo and throws a great change up. “STRIKE 3!” Harpo eyes Punkin and calls Perky up to bat. Perky loads the bases. Here comes Silas. “Hmmmm. Wonder how much he plays. Probably way to much.” She pitches a curve to the outside. “STRIKE!” She manages to barely get him out. Romeo steps up and hits a base hit. One home. Rene’ Pierre surprises everyone by hitting a double. 3 runs. Punkin’s a bit worried because Harpo is now up. She calls Budgie over and tells him to remind Harpo that this game is for the ones who aren’t experienced and to remember what ball he gave her. Budgie goes and gives the message. He nods. So Punkin pitches. Harpo strikes out and Punkins team is up again. Shammy is the first up and shocks everyone by hitting a homerun! Aya taps the ball and it goes flying. She looks at Punkin and Harpo as she stops at 1st. She knows something is up. Juliet and Phoebe strike out. Pookie is up again and takes his stance. Punkin helps him by standing close by. After 2 strikes she goes and talks to him again. He gets ready and SMACK! No one expected this. He hits it out of the park! Pookie, the youngest, makes his bases and celebrates when he gets to home plate. Harpo’s team wins 6-4 but everyone is a winner. This was a great game. So many new ones and they all got to play. They all go to the Thirsty Parrots Bar & Grill. Punkin and Harpo buy.
While they’re listening to the two teams replay the game they look at each other and Harpo asks, “Think we should tell them it was a super ball?” Punkin looks into her beer and a smile spreads over her beak, “And ruin it for Pookie and Elise? Not on your life.” Harpo nods and an evil grin starts to spread, “Who should we target?” Punkin turns to face him and the same evil grin appears, “Let’s think about that one.”

  Here's the game....
Finch Baseball---part 3

Punkin , Aya and Handsome are tossing the ball around just waiting for something to do when Pookie flies in to show Punkin how he’s been working his glove.
“Oh! Can I practice with you?” asks Pookie. “We’d love it if you would.” Says Handsome. So they begin throwing from base to base. “We don’t have enough to really get going. Think we could get some lovies to play?” asks Aya. “Let me fly by a few and see if they want to play.” Says Punkin and off she goes.
After about an hour she comes back and tells everyone, “Hey I got a whole bunch of birds who want to play. Linnies, Lovies, Bourkes, more finches and conures. We’re gonna have lots of fun!!!” It isn’t long before everyone shows up and the fun begins.
Harpo goes up to Punkin and hands her a ball. “Here, use this one today. It’ll be funny” Punkin checks it out and a wicked grin forms on her beak. “Oh yeah, this’ll be good. Who should go first?” “let’s see who’s here. Ahhh, How about Pookie?” “Nope, he’s way to young for the first. Let’s let him get used to things” “That good a friend, eh? Okay…. How about Elise?” “Sure that’ll work. She hasn’t played much ball.” So off the friends go to set up the teams.
Elise steps up to the plate and Punkin was right this girl has never played ball before. She hopes that this works. Punkin calls over to Harpo, “Just an easy toss okay.” Harpo nods and pitches….Elise watches the ball go past with wide eyes. Punkin walks over and has a few words with her and steps back. Harpo pitches again. This time Elise gets a piece of it and it flies to the outfield! She stands there staring because she didn’t hit it very hard at all. Punkin and the rest Yell at her to RUN!!! So she does and barely makes it to first. Rosie catches the ball and tosses it up a couple of times just to tease Elise then throws it to Ernie, who was so excited that his mate got to base, nearly drops the ball but then throws it to Harpo. Pookie gets up to bat and is so excited he nearly drops the bat. Punkin calms him down as does Handsome. Harpo pitches and “STRIKE 1!” Pookie looks embarrassed but is told it’s okay and not to panic. “STRIKE 2!” “Oh no! what do I do?” “Try to hit the ball, it’s okay” “STRIKE 3!” Pookie hangs his head, but Punkin tells him he’ll do better next time. He did real good for his first time out. Rosebud is next up and she too strikes out. Punkin glares at Harpo because he knows these guys don’t usually play. None the less, even Rodeo strikes out. Punkin goes out and takes the ball. “You wait, buddy. You just wait.”

  Hi Phoebe
Punkin here. Want to fly by and play some baseball? I have some lovies, bourkes, finches and you and Pookie. I'm writing another story and want you to have fun too. Your parront will get a copy. See ya soon....Oh here's my first story part A....
Here it is Baseball season once again and all the teams are working up and beginning play. I told her that I was so glad there wasn't a finch team. Start picturing it.... Here's Punkin at the plate.....YOU EXPECT ME TO PICK THAT UP?????....then she finally gets the bat up and it wavers terribly. The ball is pitched....Punkin is so glad that the catcher has such a big glove otherwise she and the ball would be gone. hehehe And THEN the B&G team is up to plate.....Here comes one sliding into base. HEY WHAT HAPPENED TO THE BASEMAN? Or maybe just TRYING to pitch a ball that is bigger than our whole body. hehehehe Oh I gotta stop, My sides are splitting. Anyway, we're going to the games and rooting for everyone. Maybe if it's really quiet you'll hear us. Have a great day.

  Hi Phoebe
Gene here. Mom was going over Nolly's page and came across you. Nolly had to go to a new home because we had to move and they only allow mom so many cages...of birds that is. And so it was with a lot of tears that Nolly and Scraps moved to California and Dandy became a therapy bird. I was able to stay tho as well as Punkin, Handsome and Aya and Kiwi and Sly. Mom can still foster a little too. I just wanted you to know that not all of us are gone and if you'd like you could still come by and visit. v4u

  Hi from Roscoe
Hi to all my BBFF's. Thank you all very very much for your support! I am very honored to be your BOTD. But most of all to know I had so many birdies support me. I'm truly grateful. The castle is beautiful and the service is great. And all the food and drinks are fabulous! They even made me a sweet potato pie with pecans on top. My favorite. But they didn't spoil me near as much as all of you have. I guess the pic is a good one of me and how eggcited I am. But again,I'm in your debt for all your kind votes and comments. V4u,lol And OXOXOXOX's to you all!

  HI Phoebe
I snuggled with Mom in bed last night and I shredded her tshirt. That is the 3rd one this week, she said she is not putting another good one on she will just wear the ratty ones. It is nice having other frothers and fisters but you have it nice too cause you dont have to share the attention. Mom gives us all individiual at night but we get to hang out with her all night. Its really fun. Have a great day.

  Hi Phoebe
Thanks for visiting. I just love all my friends on here. I am the newest to our flock, mom brought me home June of 2009. We have different rooms that we are in, Capt and Corona are in the living room cause of Capt only having 1 leg. I get to stay in Dads office cause I dont like my cage with the others and the other birdies are in the sunroom. Tampa was mom and dads first baby and they still miss her like crazy. She passed in 9/07 she had seizures and one day she had one and it caused her to have a stroke that affected respiratory system. It was very sudden and broke their hearts so bad. We really liven up the house thats for sure. Have a great day.

  Hi Phoebe
Nolly here. Thanks for the flyby. Wow so much has been going on here. They sold our house (not mom and dad)and so we will be moving. mom is so worried that some of us birds will be facing new perching arrangements. In other words, we will have to go to new homes. And she won't be able to foster any more either. It's awful!! Kiwi and Sly will always be with mom no matter. But I'll sure keep you up on what's happening.
Meantime, How's it going in Tx? We've had some lovely 60s here, but come Sun that will end. Yeah, rain/snow. We hope it snows up on the mountain and keeps up there. But we'll see.
Hope you fly by again soon. v4u

I was wondering if you (and everyone who sees this) could do me a favor and vote for my dog, Annie! If she wins, Bissell will donate $10,000 to the cat rescue I volunteer at! It’s really easy and it’d be great if every member of the family with an email can vote. You’ll be helping to save lives! Just visit ...www.bissell.com/mvp and click “Create an Account” on the upper right hand corner. Just type in your name, email, and password, and click “Submit”. Click the vote tab and just copy and paste the entrant number 0600670 in the search and that number will take you right to her page! Then click her picture and click vote! Thanks! Leaving you a vote.
