  Queen for a Day 3
The elevator slowly comes to a stop. Sunny stands at the back of the car, beak and claws ready. The door opens and she finds herself in an area just outside the main kitchen. She has been here many times at parties, bringing food to the main hall. As she exits the elevator she thinks to herself, "I always wondered where that elevator went".
Queen Sunny rushes into the ladies room to check herself. She looks into the mirror and is horrified by the way she looks. She says to herself, "Geeez, I must have been scared out of my wits". Then she notices the worst. "Oh no, I wet my feathers".
Sunny spends what seems like hours cleaning herself up when she realizes it is early evening. The tour took longer than she figured it would. She hurries out of the ladies room and outside so she can, at least, look around the grounds before dinner.
Queen Sunny just finishes touring the castle grounds when she hears the royal time keeper ring the dinner chimes. She realizes that she didn't have any lunch so she hurries to the royal dining room.
In the royal dining room she is greeted by her royal staff and presented with what seems to be the most elegant feast she has ever seen. She is so hungry that she gobbles down every morsel, including dissert.
After dining, Sunny excuses herself and heads for Maxie's fashion party to meet up with her sisters, Calico and Alex.
Just before midnight, Sunny returns to the castle and makes herself ready for the passing of the scepter ceremony at midnight.
She makes her way to the royal throne room where she awaits her successor.
Soon, the door opens and Waddles, the next Bird Of The Day walks into the room and bows to Queen Sunny. Sunny returns the bow and passes the scepter to the new BOTD. Sunny then makes her way out to the main yard of the castle. She sees Popeye waving to her.
"Hey Sunny, I came to give you a ride home". "Wow, you look tired, hey did you take my castle tour? How'd you like the dungeon? I made it pretty scary didn't I".
With that, Sunny walks up to Popeye and punches her right square in the beak.
"No thanks, I'll walk"!

Thank you all for voting me BOTD. I have the best friends in the world.
I love you all.

Come visit me, ALEX has moved to YouPet., POPEYE has moved to YouPet., SAWYER has moved to YouPet., BLUE & JEWEL have moved to YouPet., GINGER has moved to YouPet. & CALICO has moved to YouPet..

  Queen for a Day 2
Queen Sunny reaches an area where there are no lights at all. She feels very strange, like someone is watching her. She feels a cold wind through her feathers and knows she is not alone. All of a sudden she feels something brush against her tale feathers and she starts to run. "AAAAAAAAGH HELP AHHHHHHHGH!
She reaches an intersection where there are four ways to go. Back the way she came. "NO"! Right, left or straight ahead. Sunny looks to the right. Nothing but darkness. She looks to the left. Nothing but darkness. She looks straight ahead. Ah Hah, she sees a faint red glow off in the distance. Behind her she hears heavy breathing. No time to loose! Sunny starts running straight ahead.
Queen Sunny runs toward the faint red glow. The red glow gets brighter and brighter. Behind her she feels the presence getting closer and closer. Sunny keeps running.
When she reaches the red glow she sees that it is a Coke machine. Sunny's memory flashes back to when Jack was BOTW. He got lost in the dungeon and Popeye was able to lead him out by telling him to look for a suit of armor standing by a coke machine. Popeye told Jack that there was a lever next to the suit of armor and to pull it down. She franticly looks around. No suit of armor. But wait, what's this? It looks like it could be a lever. In a frantic effort, Sunny pulls the lever and a panel slides open revealing an elevator. Sunny pushes the call button and the door opens. She rushes inside just as the presence reaches her. The door closes as the presence slams into the elevator door. As the elevator starts to move upward Sunny hears a muffled voice say "Ouch. Darn".

  Queen for a Day
It is late. Queen Sunny wakes up from a restful sleep and for a minute, doesn't realize where she is. As her eyes clear she realizes that she is at the castle, in the royal sleeping chambers. She is Bird Of The Day. She pinches herself to make sure she isn't dreaming. OUCH! No, she's not dreaming it's real.
Queen Sunny quickly readies herself for a late breakfast. She rushes to the royal dining hall where she is greeted by her staff, some of whom she met the night before. She sits down for a scrumptious breakfast and then sets out to tour the castle. She has only been in the public dinning areas during dances and parties. She knows there is so much more to see.
As she enters the main courtyard Queen Sunny remembers the self guided tour holograms that Popeye installed when she was BOTW. "What a great way to see the castle", she thinks.
She makes her way to the first hologram station and an image of Popeye appears. "Hello Sunny, welcome to the tour" the hologram says.
Sunny is taken aback by the fact that the hologram knows who she is. She listens to the first hologram and follows the instructions and continues to each hologram, each one explaining a different part of the castle.
All is fine until Queen Sunny reaches the part of the tour that winds its way through the jails and the dungeons. Sunny thinks to herself, "how bad can it be?" So she continues on the tour.
Queen Sunny enters the long winding staircase that leads down to the dungeons. It continues to get darker and darker. At the bottom of the staircase there is a sign. The sign reads, "WARNING" The sounds and images in the dungeon are very realistic. If you scare easily, do not continue. "Hummmph!" sunny says, "I'm tough, I can take it." So, Queen Sunny continues through the large old wooden door into the dungeon.
Once thorough the door, Sunny is presented with a long, dark hallway. On either side of the hallway there are doors with large locks on them. As Sunny starts down the hallway, strange sounds start to immerge from each one of the doors. The Sounds get louder and louder and Sunny starts to get scarder and scarder. She reaches the end of the hallway and there are two ways to go. Right or left. Sunny chooses left. Oooo, bad choice.

  Hello from Merlina!
You are a very pretty bird! I noticed that you think my name is unique. It used to be Merlin until mom and dad discovered that I am a girl! So, they added the "A" to make it more girly. I hope you are enjoying the spring. I know I am. Have a great weekend. C ya later!

Come visit me, Jade, Merlina, Starburst, Pipper & Sunkist.

  Hi Hugh
Thanks for visiting our Gouldian finches. Hugh has really unusual colors for a budgie. He looks more like a love bird in the photo! Glad to see another Dad here.
Will passed away last night. He had been declining for many months in his old age. But the aviary with all his kids is a testament to his greatness as a father. Here's to the Dads!

  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!
