  Hi Polly
It's Popeye.
Dad had an early appointment at the wound center yesterday so we were unable to blog with all of you. Sorry about that. Dad's leg continues to improve. Dad is having only a small amount of pain now. In fact, if he's busy with stuff he forgets all about it.
Mom and dad went to the movies yesterday and saw "The Good Dinosaur". What a wonderful movie! The animation was incredible and the story line was beautiful. Even dad got a little misty eyed. After the movie they went to Costco to pick up some stuff for dinner and some already cooked and pealed eggs. Mom and dad are making deviled eggs to take to mom's brother's house for a Super Bowl Sunday BBQ.
Today will be clear, with a high of 75 and a low of 51. No more rain in sight for at least another week.
Hope your day is fun.

mom spent all afternoon grooming our older cat. first she tried to get as many mats off of him without pulling her hurting him. she tried to cut them in half and then pull them apart and then try and brush them out. one of the mats had a stick in it. then mom gave him a bath with tearless conditioning cat shampoo and then put a coconut cat conditioner in his fur. then she tried to brush some more mats out. then after she towel dried him she blow dried him and he seemed to enjoy that. his fur wasn't dirty at all and he doesn't look any different after all that but he must feel better. then mom wanted to brush him some more but she misplaced his brush or else he hid it from mom so she would stop. then after dinner she gave me a nice shower and then bow dried me. my feather feel very soft now and i spent about an hour preening myself after wards. Boo Boo watch all this and thought to herself thank god its not me

  Hi Polly
Mom went over to see her granddaughter Olivia for 3 hrs to discuss her science fair project. Mom had the nerve to put me in lockdown! Livi is so excited to be growing crystals for her project! Mom showed her different crystals on websites. They are going to do at least 10-12 different crystals. Mom said that I don't get to help at rude! She said that boiling water and birdies don't mix! For the crystals that will be made using chemicals will be done over at Livi's house...NEVER any chemicals used around me! Mom is going supply shopping tomorrow and Livi & she will start working on crystals over the weekend. The science fair is on March 7th, so hopefully they will get a lot made by then!

I hope your day was a good one!

Well, it is very sunny here, but not warm enough for a sunbath with a high of only 65 degrees. Tomorrow is supposed to hit 71, but it will be cloudy. Who knows? However the weekend onward it will be sunbath city for at least a week-10 days!! Not a drop of rain in sight though, and since Feb is normally So Cal's wettest month of the year this is not good. Where did El Nino go? Come back, we need you!!

More entries to the Milonga pic contest, and it is really shaping up nicely. So glad everybirdy is wanting to participate.

Mom goes to see her GI doc this afternoon, since the insurance is FINALLY straightened out and working. Her acid reflux is back, and it shouldn't be, but then she didn't go back for that final endoscopy. He will probably yell at her. Oh well...

  Hey Polly,
Well, so far we've gone to the north shore of Oahu and seen the big 24 foot waves and boy was it windy! :)

Today we are going to Hanauma Bay (pronounced Hanau-ma). It's a nice cove that's a fish and aquatic sanctuary. It used to be free but now everyone has to pay to go in.

Mom has passed by and from the hill looking down the water is prestine blue and clear. Before you could feed the fishes and they sold frozen peas for you to feed the fishes. Mom heard that all the fishes are tame since they are fed regularly. They come up and rub your legs as you are in the water. Never heard of anyone getting bitten by them tame fish. You never know one might just get a little too greedy and take a chunk of flesh to see if it tastes good.

Anywho, maybe when one of the BC parronts come down to Hawaii, mom will actually have a reason to go there and feed the fishies.

The picture of Hanauma Bay is in my gallery thanks to Cookie's mom, Momma Mary. :)

Love and warm hugs to ya'll in the cold states.

Also a vote for you.

Hi Polly,
We did some a little fog yesterday, but not bad. Good for your Mom going to church every night! When my Mommy and Daddy were in the Dominican Republic some years ago on a mission trip, they had church every night, too. The Dominicans have church every night all the time. It was great!

Mommy was very busy this morning making soup. Every year in Feb. her Curves facility has a soup contest. She didn't participate the past two years because of Daddy's being sick, but since he's better this year, she entered again. She made this wonderful Broccoli Cheddar soup. It's thick and delicious...and fattening! Not exactly the thing to take to a work-out facility, I told her. But does she listen to me? It would have been so much better if she had left it at home so we could have had some. We all LOVE anything with cheese in it!!

I hope your day was fun too! Mom made pancakes tonight! Jennifer and Ian had pizza! I got some of all of it! I'm living the good life!hehehehehe
Mom is washing all the quilts for the bed and McKenzie's also. She had washed them and folded them and there were on the bed. McKenzie jumped up on the bed and when mom told her to get off, she peed! I tell you that dog is really a Baby Beast Mode!!!
She is doing pretty good with going out but there is still accidents. Mom thinks that maybe she is expecting too much too soon. We are starting late with her so she is probably doing better than we think!

  Hey Polly!
I missed you! Welcome back! :)

The temperature today is a high of 85 degrees warm. I say warm cause the cool trade winds keeps us at a nice temperature. :)

Not too cold and not too hot, unless your on the beach with no umbrella then your cooking.

Today the Sunset Beach is pumping out 24 foot sets and believe me if your in your car by the roadside you can actually feel the strong wind push your car.

Can you imagine if you were on the beach? You'd fall backwards in the sand and then the wind would blow tons of sand on you. The whipping sand could equal a desert sand storm but not that bad, but close.

Many of the pro surfers compete in the pro surfing contest every year. I think some of the winners win up to like $16,000.00 or something like that.

If you ask me, that's like hazard pay! :(

Some surfers do get into trouble in those big waves and the life guards are right there waiting just in case cause time is critical in that type of rough water.

Some tourists also give it a try but they end up being saved by the lifeguards because they didn't listen. Hoomans I tell ya!!

Well, happy hump day to you all and I thank you for your votes, love and support.

Here's a vote for you too, my sweet friend. :)

Love & hugs till tomorrow!

If ye feel compelled to write some words of yer own on my page, please try to keep it clean & with the rules of this good BC in mind. Garrr….there were many that I couldn’t share with ye because of it being a bit risqué . It wouldn’t be much of a “pirate” limerick without such things but pillaging & dismemberment will have to satisfy ye!

Bring a good appetite & be prepared for some ale & rum, lads & lassies! ’Tis a fair day fer turnin’ 11! (aye-aye). See ye real soon! Sam bows & waves with his pirate hat “goodbye”.

  Hi Polly
Thank you again my dear friends for the Hatchday wishes and for BOTD honors! I had such a great Hatchday and it was wonderful to be queen for the day! Tho I must admit that I have my mom so well trained, she treats me like a queen every day!

Some friends asked me about two of my pics, so I'll answer in my blog.

In my one pic I chewed up two $20s. She put all the pieces into a baggie & went to her bank. Mom explained what happened & showed a pic of me. All the tellers came over to see the money shredding birdie & had a good laugh! Mom left with two unchewed $20s. Mom no longer leaves money on the table!

The other was about shreddable pinatas. They are my favorite toys! Mom always gets me a parrot & a horsie (or donkey). I always bite the face off first! Then I bite off the hanging string & destroy the rest of it on the floor!

I hope your day was a good one!

My 20th Hatchday was very special! My Aunt Amy (mom's bestie) came over to help me celebrate! After mom, Aunt Amy is my favorite person! Mom got me my favorite cake (and hers) white almond with whipped cream icing! I'm sampling the icing in my profile pic! We didn't have ice cream, mom didn't want me having too much sugar! Mom and Aunt Amy sang Happy Hatchday to me then I got to eat some of my delicious cake, then I got to unwrap my presents! Aunt Amy got me a bag of walnuts & and a bag of almonds. Mom got me 2 lbs of pistachios, a wicker ball toy and 2 shredding toys. Both are fillable of which was shredded in about 10 minutes! I had so much fun I didn't want the day to end! Then I woke up to find out that I was BOTD, WOO HOO! I spent the day at the castle celebrating with King Jedi! Thank you again my dear friends!

It's Popeye.
Sorry we missed you yesterday and Saturday. The BC wouldn't let dad log on.
On Saturday mom and dad went to the opening of a new discount market. That's why we weren't on the BC for Saturday either. It's within walking distance of our house and they have great bargains. and a lot of choices. dad will be shopping there often. He even went back yesterday for more steaks.
Mom worked at the police station on Friday and Saturday but stayed home on Sunday to finish up with a few cages. She also re-cleaned Shadow's and Tiger Lilly's cage because they are budgie slobs. Today is a rest day for dad because he has been busy all weekend with house repairs and cleaning. Mom may go back in to the police station for a few hours and Bob is coming over later on this afternoon. Busy day.
Over the weekend we had 4.0 inches of rain. Now the wind is blowing rather hard and re-depositing all the stuff that dad cleaned up.
Today will be clear and windy, with a high of 62 and a low of 38.
Hope your day was fun.

Dad went to the website of the company that was selling parakeet skulls (Skulls Unlimited International), and found that they are also selling skulls of other animals too. he looked at the bird skull list and found that they were selling skulls of other parrots like Scarlet Macaw, Hyacinth Macaw, Yellow-headed Amazon, Grand Eclectus, Hawk Headed Parrot, Sulphur Crested Cockatoo, Cockatiel, Conure, Black Capped Lorikeet and Zebra Finch.

Groundhog Day Facts
In 1723, the Delaware Indians settled Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania as a campsite halfway between the Allegheny and the Susquehanna Rivers. The town is 90 miles northeast of Pittsburgh,. The Delawares considered groundhogs honorable ancestors. According to the original creation beliefs of the Delaware Indians, their forebears began life as animals in "Mother Earth" and emerged centuries later to hunt and live as men.
The name Punxsutawney comes from the Indian name for the location
"ponksad-uteney" which means "the town of the sandflies."
The name woodchuck comes from the Indian legend of "Wojak,
the groundhog" considered by them to be their ancestral grandfather.
When German settlers arrived in the 1700s, they brought a tradition known as Candlemas Day, which has an early origin in the pagan celebration of Imbolc. It came at the mid-point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. Superstition held that if the weather was fair, the second half of Winter would be stormy and cold. For the early Christians in Europe, it was the custom on Candlemas Day for clergy to bless candles and distribute them to the people in the dark of Winter. A lighted candle was placed in each window of the home. The day's weather continued to be important. If the sun came out February 2, halfway between Winter and Spring, it meant six more weeks of wintry weather.If the sun made an appearance on Candlemas Day, an animal would cast a shadow, thus predicting six more weeks of Winter. Germans watched a badger for the shadow. In Pennsylvania, the groundhog, upon waking from mid-Winter hibernation, was selected as the replacement.Pennsylvania's official celebration of Groundhog Day began on February 2nd, 1886 . The groundhog was given the name "Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Sage of Sages, Prognosticator of Prognosticators, and Weather Prophet Extraordinary'' and his hometown thus called the "Weather Capital of the World.'' His debut performance: no shadow - early Spring.

The legendary first trip to Gobbler's Knob was made the following year.

Well, Mom thought I might get another sunbath today, because at 10:30 it was sunny and almost warm enough. Then at noon she and Dad decided to go to Chicken Bowl for lunch, and when Mom opened the door she discovered clouds had rolled in and the temp had dropped from what it was at 10:30. Just checked and it is only 64 degrees out there; definitely not sunbath weather. It looks like a storm is rolling in and they are predicting rain for tomorrow.

Well, Mom got a Teriyaki chicken bowl with noodles instead of rice. She always got the Hot Garlic one in the past, but she is trying to give her tummy a break. Dad, of course, not only got the Hot Garlic, but he added his usual hot Chinese mustard to it. He took a big bite and nearly blew off the top of his head, but he loves it. I shared Mom's bowl and it was very tasty. Needless to say I love noodles, and the chicken was tasty too. Mom thought I was going to eat a little piece of lettuce, but when I realized what it was I spit it out on her lap. Can't fool this bird!

Hi Polly,
Well, it looks like a pretty uneventful day here. Mommy got up super early and finished two lessons in her Bible study. So now she's ahead of schedule. They are studying the book of Acts. St. Paul was really something. What a brave man and an inspiration for us all, Mommy says!

She has a new recipe that she needs to type out and email to her girls. She says that they are going to love "Luscious Lemon Squares". She's also going to send them the recipes for Encharitos, that she made last night, and for Broccoli Cheddar Soup, a great winter favorite.

Happy Saturday ! Of course, mom and dad will head up to the g'parronts (and pick up my sugar snap peas too !) I hope they come home early cause mom has NO work in her bookbag this weekend - all her report cards are finished - so the time will be all mine :)

We'll finish up with the Valentine's and maybe even do a page in her coloring book - and of course, I'll beat her in dice ! The only downside is she says she will need to move the vacuum around - I've been on a red chili pepper kick - I LOVE those things ! ! ! Only I leave pepper dust and crumbles all over and it makes both her and daddy sneeze ! Then so do I - and I have such good manners I always say "thank you" before anyone ever says "bless you" !

Boy, aunt Karen sure stays busy - mom tries not to do too much in the evenings during the winter - I think she's part bear and wants to hibernate ! har har har !

Have a great Saturday - love to all of you ! Cookie

  Hi Polly
I sure hope the weather is good when the company gets here in a few weeks. Aunt Gail is planning on swimming in our pool .... good luck! She may have to do a polar bear swim ... hehehe. But, we can at least go shelling on the beach. These temps are NOT normal for our area ... so sad!
Another chilly day here but at least it didn't rain. Not much going on today except dad played ball with me.

Come visit me, Derby Farms, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  Heya, Miss Polly!
More play time is a wonderful thing, isn't it?

Mom did her grocery shopping today, and picked up some stuff for Grandpa, too. Bran flakes, sliced peaches in a jar--gosh, Meijer has them for a dollar less for their brand than Del Monte, and they are good, Grandpa says. And red grapes for $1.79/lb. Sweet! Stopped to get ice melt, as they are talking about a winter storm for Tuesday, so she picked up 2 25 lb. bags. Ran everything over to Grandpa's and knocked some more ice from the patio roof. Then back home to me and worked on the darn web site. I made sure she gave me some good head scritches though!

Wing hugs coming atcha!
Your buddy,

  Hi Polly
We are experiencing such crazy weather! We had a high of 26° today and with the wind chill it felt like 20° or less and we had a dusting of snow. For the next 5 days we will have high temps in the low/mid 50's! Mom likes having that kind of winter weather!

I have been such a good birdie today, I didn't get into any trouble at all! When I wanted some mommy & me time, I would crawl onto the couch and cuddle with her! I was so good that I got an extra walnut today! YUMMMM, I think I TRY to be extra good tomorrow too!

I hope your day was a good one!
Love & a vote

  Hi Polly
Well, Dad read my blog about charging for the ponytail rides, and he had the nerve to declare that any revenue from such would go to him! How rude! So I have cancelled that idea for now.

However I did have a very nice day. After Mom got home from the gym about noon, we went right outside for a sunbath. I was a little miffed because I was tricked into my carrier. Mom was in my room for just a minute, and Dad stuck his head in the door so of course I flew to Mom's knee to protect her. She then plucked me up and plopped me into the carrier. Again, how rude! I did get a tiny piece of a tater chip out of the deal though. And it was just beautiful outside; we hit 75 today! And the gopher has apparently moved on, since Mom really drowned his burrow watering Ms Gardenia Tree yesterday and he didn't rebuild it. Hurray!

Then we shared a plate of chicken gumbo for lunch. Life just doesn't get much better than this. I am a very contented birdy today. Although I did scream at some people who had the nerve to walk on my sidewalk; that they were rude goes without saying!!

Hi Polly,
I'll bet that was the problem. Because we have never been able to figure out how the mice get in our house, Daddy sets traps most nights. Sometimes we don't get any for weeks, and then we'll catch one or two for several nights in a row. Because of this Mommy is scrupulous about vacuuming up our food off the floor almost everyday and sometimes twice a day. She also cleans the bottom of our cages every morning and night and removes our food dishes from our cages at night. She doesn't want to take the risk of a mouse climbing into our cages and terrifying us. This is because she found little mouse turds on the bottom of Finnegan's cage a couple times and also in one of the 'tiels' cages. Usually when birdies get upset at night, it's because of this. I'd be upset, too, if a mouse was running around the bottom of my cage in the middle of the night. Well, I hope that solves your problem. Tell your Dad to keep putting those traps out all winter, just in case, and take the food dish out of your cage at night.
Lots of Love and Big Hugs from Little Miss Lucy♥

P.S. Mommy says that she and your Mom need to have lunch again when the weather gets nice.
