  Hi Pepper,
Sorry my blog is late, mom was tired when she came home from work and took a birdie nap.

I think the older hoomans get the more sleep they need. Shish!!

Anywho, today we will learn some words that if you come to Hawaii you will definitely need to know.

For example the restrooms have hydro glyphics and only says Kane (Ka ne) male or Wahine (wa-hee-nay) female. That's where a lot of tourists shake their heads trying to figure out which is which.

Also if you hear the word pupule (pooh-poo-lay) that means crazy; insane. Most common use is crazy.

Here's a nice phrase called Pehea 'oe? (Pay-hay-ya oy) (oy as in toy) meaning how are you?

A lot of us has to do this every week or get the trash out. 'Opala (oh-pa-la). Yes every week we hafta take the 'Opala out. :)

Here's a good one I think everyone will like. 'Ono (oh-no) meaning delicious, tasty. Most common use delicious, as in taste of food. :)

This one everyone had some of. It's called 'ohana (oh-ha-na) or family.

This one refers to my Angel frother Pookie. He was very niele (née-eh-lay) meaning curious, inquisitive, a busy body or nosy person or bird. Hehehe

This one we all say to each other. Malama pono (ma-la-ma po-no) meaning be careful, take care , or to care for. Most common use: Take care. :)

Hope you all have a fun time pronunciating Hawaiian phrases or words.

Soon everyone will be speaking Hawaiian.

Malama pono! :)

A Hui ho (ah who-ee ho) until we meet again or see you later.

Sending you all warm wing hugs and beaky kisses along with a vote.

Love,

Laka Aolani, candidate for BOTM

  Hi Pepperbird
*peck*
We did not get to share the treats for the Superbowl--BUT there were sweet pepper seeds from the pepper slices.
I'm VERY tired. Yesterday morning there were over 100 feathers carpeting my cage floor. Today there were only 20-30, but growing feathers is going to make me tired, HUNGRY and cranky. 'Scuse me, nap time again. *sigh*

I hope you are having a great day! We are having a little Puppy Bowl party. Don't really care about the Super Bowl. We just hope it's a fun game and that everyone has a great time.
Mom has been filing the papers we sorted out this week. That is one big job done. Now she just has to make sure everyone keeps up with filing! There is a big box of papers for dad to go through when he gets home. I'm sure he will just love doing it!
Mom has 2 more nights so we are going to enjoy them! Jennifer is home and she is watching Agents of Shield. We have seen them but she hasn't. I don't mind seeing them again.
I hope you have a great day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope the day was great! I took a shower today and it felt good. I had been feeding McKenzie some of my treats and then decided that we both needed to get cleaned up! She started barking at me when I dumped the water on her so I know she really enjoyed it! She got toweled off and I just air dried!
Mom took Jennifer down to visit her dad this morning so I got some quiet time! I got another piece of my hatchday cake after lunch. It was lovely.
The rest of the day was spent chasing puppy and trying to get chores done. We are now going to relax and get my notes done and perhaps watch a movie. It is very rare for mom to have a Saturday night off so we are going to make the most of it!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!

  Hi Pepper
tonight Cori shredded a egg carton on the bed. then she thought it would be cute to flap her wings and send all the shredded egg carton on the floor. when mom looked at me she saw i had taken everyone of my treasures and had them spread all over the carpet. mom had to get down on her hands and knees and pick each piece of paper up individually to throw in the trash so she didnt get any of my treasures mixed in with it.i will check tomorrow to make sure they re all still there. it was nice of mom to make the effort because she knows how much i love my shinies.

HAPPY TGIF DAY
this is not an infomercial. mom was very excited when she found this website. tired of being in a culture of waste and contributing to the massive landfill dilemmas. remember when products from the 50's lasted forever and if you are lucky enough to still own any chances are they are still working. now their is a website that only stocks products that guarantee they will last a lifetime
Tired of replacing stuff? Buy Me Once solves that problem. i suggest you check it out. they don't carry everything and are interested in know about things you think are excellent products.

all the compnieson this website stand by their products.
the website is buymeonce.com

I hope you had a wonderful day! It was busy around here but that was just because of puppy duty. McKenzie got into a lot of trouble today. She just couldn't seem to sit still. Mom was chasing after her most of the day! She still is! McKenzie just doesn't want to leave Merlin alone. Mom doesn't want to keep Merlin locked up all day and McKenzie really needs to learn to leave him alone.
I decided she was looking pretty hungry so I started throwing seeds, nuts and pellets down for her! Mom didn't think it was a very good idea. She swept it up and by the time she dumped it, I had thrown more down. Mom swept it up again and then dumped the rest. I got some veggie instead. That was my plan all along!hahahahaha
Obviously, we didn't get much else done. Mom was working on cleaning the oven. Since we don't use any chemicals around here it takes a bit longer to do. She should be able to finish it up tomorrow.
I hope you enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope your day was fabulous! I had a pretty good one. I helped mom go through more papers today! Mom found tax returns from before she was married!!! She has been married for nearly 34 years!hahahahahaha Ian said it was pretty impressive. Mom said it was really bad of her to hang on to stuff that old! It's all shredded and gone now. We do know that McKenzie will bark at the paper shredder! Mom brought her over to it so she knows it's not a scary thing.
Mom made a trip over to the Goodwill and deposited a bunch of stuff! She is very pleased that we got rid of so much stuff! There were things mom didn't even know we had and hopefully someone else will be happy to have them!
Ian took mom to Chipotles for lunch. She loves having salads there. The manager gave them drinks and chips for free since they come in there so often. That was so nice of him!! They have had a lot of bad press lately but mom have never had a bad experience there.
Mom checked her schedule for next week and she is not scheduled until Tuesday night! That means extra days of vacation for her! YAY!! Don't know if that will be the case but it's nice if it is!
I hope you enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It was busy around here. We are still going on with the spring cleaning and the back of the car is now filled with stuff for the Goodwill. Mom will have to drop that stuff off tomorrow so she can put more in there. McKenzie is in the back seat so anything we put there would be chewed up by the time mom got to Goodwill!
The kitchen and the dining room are done and now mom is working on her room. It's slow going since she can only do it when the puppy is taking a nap or at night when she is in her crate. McKenzie is a very curious girl and wants to see everything!
Dad is in Utah and says the weather is nasty. He he one of 28 trucks who are hauling the equipment for a show called Marvel Universe Live. It's got Spiderman and my favorite, Captain America. It's coming to Seattle after Utah but I don't think dad will be hauling the stuff again.
I hope you have a lovely evening! Leaving a vote and a hug too!

I hope the day has been just wonderful. Lots of cleaning going on around here. Mom has started Spring Cleaning early. Since she will have all of next week off we figured we needed to get it done! Mom has a dream of everything being organized and in it's place around here! I deal in reality and I keep telling her that unless she dumps the family that ain't gonna happen! We cleaned out the cabinets in the kitchen and the china cabinet today. There are about 5 boxes for the Goodwill.
Ian was off today so he took McKenzie out on the balcony and mom vacuumed and cleaned the rug. We are going to get burritos for dinner and then it will be a relaxing evening. Don't know if I'll get to watch any movies. Jennifer has been watching some show on Netflix in the evening so I'll just watch whatever she puts on! I usually laugh at all of it anyway even if it's a drama!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a fun day! McKenzie is napping at the moment so I have a chance to get a note out! Who knew that our entire lives would be taken over by one little puppy?? I feel just awful when I can't get by to say hello but there are times when it's non stop around here. I think the puppy is trying to set a new worlds record for destruction of furniture! It is not going over well with mom!hehehehe
Mom is helping with the toy clearance at work. It's that time of year again! Actually they are about 2 weeks early with it this year. Soon all the pool toys will be out and people will be walking by dreaming of warmer weather and lots of sunshine.hehehehehe HECK! Easter will be here before you know it! Well, it will be in the stores before you know it. We have always enjoyed winter but this year we can't wait for Spring and some sunshine and long walks around the lake. It makes for a sleepy puppy and more time for me on BC!
I sure hope you have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Pepper
your mom might try looking at used computers. sometimes you can get a really good deal. mom bough her computer used. it was half the price of a new one. the apple store said the lady who bought it only had it for about 4 months and want to upgrade to something better and hardly used the computer at all. the only problem with buying a used apple is you lose the 2 year free technical help service. mom has had only minor problems with it most of which are caused by her.

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been okay here so far but it's just starting!hahahahahaha
Gloomy day but I can't complain since so many places are having very cold temps.
Mom is getting some laundry done and we just had snack time. I had my apple and a couple of almonds, Merlin had some of the Greenie treats and McKenzie had a Blue Dog bakery cookie. Mom says it's like a daycare around here!!
McKenzie was in a very chewy mood this morning and tried to chew on the legs of the coffee table. Mom redirected her to a toy but that didn't last long. She then tried to chew the lever on the bottom of the computer desk chair! She is tenacious! Right now she is trying to kill her stuffed reindeer toy.
How is the great computer search going? Does your mom understand them?? I told you that mom is lucky that Ian and dad do. If mom were going to buy one she would have to spend hours researching it first!
You enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

.today our frother and his girlfriend invited mom over to their apartment for dinner. girlfriends mom and dad and sister and hubby were also there. the dinner was very good. she made spaghetti with a wonderful tasting meat sauce, salad, rolls and lots of dessert. mom had a very good time and was very happy she went. our dad didn't go because of all his health problems and stayed home with us. as mom was leaving around 4:15pm there were snow flurries but when she came home it was clear out but very cold.

I hope you are having a wonderful day! We are doing laundry and mom has been cleaning out the kitchen. She is giving her Kitchen Aid mixer to a friend at work. Mom has had it for 8 years and used it once! It sure did free up a lot of space in the pantry!
We have to clean out George and Gracie's tank and mom wants to clean the rug in the hallway. McKenzie barks at the vacuum and the cleaner still so Ian will take her out on the balcony while mom does that. She seems to like it out there. She sits in on of the chairs and watches the world go by!

  Hi Pepper
we didn't win the power ball or even get 1 number. most startling news we heard today is that tens of thousands of dead bird bodies are washing up on the beaches of prince william sound in alaska. the birds are called Common Murre and appear to have starved to death suggesting disruptions of herring and other fish the birds eat. seabirds are indicators of the health of the ecosystem. climate change, the 1983 valdez oil spill in prince william or el nino weather patterns may or may not be the cause. scientist and biologist are rather alarmed at this point.

I hope you are having a fantastic day! Mine has been pretty good. I have been on puppy duty most of the day. It sure is a hard job. Everything is taking so much longer since mom has to stop every few seconds to chase after the puppy! It takes a long time just to get a note done these days!
It's been a clear and pretty day but it was cold. We just hung out at home today and did some cleaning. There is a lot more to do since McKenzie is a bird puppy! She loves chewing paper and cardboard! Yep! Part bird!
It's our weekend but I have no idea what is planned. I hope we get to take some time and watch a movie. There's lots of new things at the Redbox.

HAPPY TGIF DAY

the bad buggies have been leaving me alone these past few days. they fly over to see what i am doing and check out my toys and then fly back to their cage. i like it when they visit me but i also like it when they leave.

we are getting lots of rain . its around 40 degrees. dad has been hunting for a winter jacket. so far we have three and 2 more are being shipped from Macys. after we have all the jackets dad will pick out what he likes and return the rest. some really good bargains going on right now. moms been going through closets and trying to get rid of things. so far she likes everything she has found. did manage to throw away 2 pair of shoes. its taking her forever and she not getting much done. mom moved the rope perch down in front of Coris food bowls thinking Cori would use it just to get to her food. well guess what? she didn't eat dinner tonight because she won't use it!

I hope you had a fun day!! Mine wasn't bad. Mom took a bunch of stuff over to the Goodwill and then took McKenzie to Petco. Ian gave us a gift card for Christmas so she got to go spend it! Merlin got a lovely new food bowl since McKenzie broke his last one. McKenzie picked out some new toys. Mom tried to get her a boo boo dog which is a long stuffed dog, but she didn't want that. She picked out a reindeer that squeaks and a bear that has a rope body. They were clearance from Christmas. It's what she wanted and she has been carrying the reindeer around since she got home! She got some cookies from the cookie bar and more Science Diet puppy food. I got nothing!!!! Mom has another card to use for me but I don't really need anything right now. There was a beautiful Golden Cap Conure there. He was $650 and mom couldn't afford that! I don't think we need anymore animals around here! Mom said he was a really gorgeous bird.
McKenzie has to go to the vet on Friday. She has to get the 2nd booster shots. They only give them a tiny bit at a time. Since we don't know if she ever had shots before she came to live with us, they have to give the shot over 3 months. I wonder what she is going to think of our vet! I hope she gets to see Dr. Jennifer, my vet, cause she is awesome!
I hope you have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

HAPPY NATIONAL BIRD DAY
National Bird Day, an “unofficial” national holiday, was created to promote avian awareness.Nature lovers, bird lovers and bird watchers across the country annually recognize National Bird Day on January 5.National Bird Day is one of several designated “holidays” celebrating birds.

National Bird Day is a day to shine a spotlight on issues critical to the protection and survival of birds, both captive and wild, from disease and environmental factors to illegal trade and welfare of birds in captivity

The health of the global bird population is a reflection of and early warning system facing our wider ecological health. current research indicates that nearly 12 percent of the world’s almost 10,000 bird species are in danger of extinction in the current century..

I hope you are having a spectacular day! I have not gotten many notes done in the past few days. I'm sure every bird knows what has been taking up the typist time~or should I say who!!! It's like having a second job. She seems to like to get into everything! We are slowly getting her use to the schedule and she is doing great sleeping in the crate at night. Mom moved it out to the living room for the nights she is not home. She discovered the living room window and school buses yesterday. That kept her occupied for half an hour. We are working on "mom and Merlin are not chew toys" right now!
Mom has met more neighbors in the past 2 weeks than the entire 6 years we have lived here. Everyone seems to have a dog here. Not like when Mandy was out walking. McKenzie is learning to socialize with other dogs but gets so distracted that she forgets why she is out there.
We had snow on Sunday but it only lasted for the day. Just fine by me. It was slushy the next day but the roads were taken care of so the driving wasn't bad. Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night so if it wants to snow again, it can! Don't think it will though. Never snows when you want it too!

while mom was gone to celebrate the first day of the new year at Aunt Arlenes house dad was making me a meatball. he kept hearing something saying i love you. he looked at me and i looked back and said it wasn't me telepathically. then he looked at the bad budgies and they looked back every so innocently. as he gave me the meatball he kept hearing this i love you over and over again. finally he caught the very bad budgie Paddy who was pressing the i love you key on his little bird recorder whenever he thought dad wasn't looking. then Piddy went over and showed dad she can do it too. they are very bad but dad thought it was very cute.

I hope you are having a fabulous 1st day of the year! Clear as a bell here but was only 20 degrees this morning!
We has a quiet evening. There were some fireworks that started around 8 pm. Mom was out walking McKenzie and there was a big boom but mom told her it was okay and just kept walking! McKenzie did not freak out! She did, however, bark loudly at a grocery store shopping cart someone left on the walkway! Mom took her over to it and let her sniff it! I guess everything is scary if you have never seen it before!
We went to bed rather early and mom put the radio on for us so we could listen to classical not booms. I know! We are a boring lot but it was nice that mom did not have to work and we could spend the evening together!
Dad was back in New Mexico on his way to Texas. He is sending mom a picture of the truck stop where he found McKenzie. It will be interesting to see where she came from.
I hope the day is perfect and I hope 2016 it the most wonderful year any of us have ever had!!

I hope your day was wonderful! Haven't been getting too many notes done lately! It's all the puppy's fault! She is one wild girl! Mom and dad are starting to think she will never get why they take her out so much! She is still a baby and it looks like it's going to take more time to get her to understand potty training. She is determined to make Merlin her best friend! Mom keeps telling her that cats do not play well with others!hehehehehe
Mom is off tonight and goes back on Tuesday night. That is just Monday off since she starts at 11 pm so she will have to pick another day off. It gets confusing since she starts at 11 instead of midnight. It's extra time off for her so she is just fine with it! They are having a huge storage event at the store mom works at so things have not gotten much quieter for her. It will slow down soon!
I'm not sure I mentioned this, but the reason dad went out shopping on Christmas Eve was because he got mom Seahawks License plates for Christmas! He had to wait until she was done with the car because they have to have the temporary paper on the back until the plates show up! It would have ruined the surprise if mom had seen the temporary! I think dad did good!
You enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a hug from me to you!

Your mom does not 'owe' anything.
Our Christmas day was long and lonely. The skins all went to see both sides grandparronts.
BUT we did get a late dinner...
New Year's Eve may be similar, eggcept later. Mom, dad and skinsis are planning to watch the Cotton Bowl at the theater(we don't have cable). That's if there is power, hehehe.
Winter Storm Warning for us from 10 am Monday thru 6 am Tuesday. Let us know how it is going for you, and if we have power we will do the same.

Well, another great Milonga ! All the holiday celebrations rolled into one ! Thanks to all for the hard work put into making it such a success :) It was great to see so many friends there !

Today, mom and dad are heading to the g'parronts since they didn't go yesterday like they usually do on Saturday. But I had a lovely time with my Laura - I even go more presents ! I especially loved the paper ! ! ! Maybe I'll try out some of my new toys while they're gone today . . . or maybe nap and catch up on some zzzzzz 's.

Looks like a rainy week for mom's vacation. That's OK though, cause it'll keep her closer to home !

Have a peaceful Sunday - love Cookie singing ON THE THIRD DAY OF CHRISTMAS

  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
Merry Christmas!! Can't believe it's already here!! I hope tomorrow is just wonderful for you!

Dad has gone off Christmas shopping. Yes! I know! It's Christmas Eve. Dad never goes shopping before Christmas Eve. He says it's his Christmas tradition. I think dad just like to put things off until the last minute!

I am starting to think that McKenzie is a bird dog!! She tried to chew the coffee table and loves to chew boxes! I swear I did not teach her any of this! It's all coming naturally so that is why I think she might be part bird! Cool!hehehehehe

Mom rented Mission Impossible and Pan from the Redbox so we will be watching those later. Mom and I are going to watch Pan since she has no interest in seeing Mission Impossible. Popcorn and a movie while we get laundry done! Great way to spend Christmas Eve!

I hope your day is perfect and that you have a great Christmas!

Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Pepper
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!"
love Boo Boo

  Hi Pepper
HAPPY HUMPDAY

the sky tonight was filled with lightening and sounds of thunder. now its pouring rain. we tried to blog last night but we lost the internet and phone once again and it didn't come back on until after 1am.

I ate 3 crickets and 2 waxworms tonight. when it was time for bed the bad budgies wouldn't go into their cage. mom waved her arms over and over and they refused to go in. then mom realized she had shut their cage door and they couldn't go in. as soon as she opened the door they went right inside.

love Boo Boo

  Hi Pepper
mom kept the bad budgies in their cage tonight for about 45 minutes to give me time to eat my waxworms and crickets. the bad budgies screamed to be let out. I ate everything but 1 cricket. I then went and sat under the bad budgies cage so mom let them out and they went after me and I seemed to enjoy it tonight and was quite active and even managed to eat the last cricket while the bad budgies were bothering me.

love Boo Boo
