  Hi Polly
If it's a pc mom wants, tell her to wait until Windows 10 comes out next month. Windows 8 has been awful, from what we hear.
Yesterday when mom got back from the pool after a couple of hours, it started raining. It rained off and on all night long. It's sort of overcast right now too, and we think it's going to rain again today. This is getting old! We've had more rain in June than normal. It's the last day of June, though, so maybe July will bring better weather.
Since mom got her nails done on Sunday, if it rains today, she'll start packing up the kitchen. I know it's still a couple of weeks away, but she figures a little at a time will be better than trying to do it all at once.
I hope you are having a good day, summery weather and lots of cuddles and love. Hugs, Falco

It's Popeye.
Bob came back over with some more framing stuff. Aaron Brothers had to start over with Bob's framing because he wanted something else in the frame. So the whole order had to be done over. Bob wasn't happy but he realized that it wasn't Aaron Brothers fault. After the framing, Bob, mom and dad went to a new Asian buffet. it was huge. Needless to say, everyone was full when they left.
Today will be partly cloudy, hot and humid again. With a high of 92 and a low of 67.
Hope your day was fun.

  Hi Polly !
Mom had a good time yesterday visiting . . . and came home with presents for me ! And even better ? Daddy is learning to speak "quaker" - he noticed my water dish was crooked and knew I had tried to bathe in it, so he got my tub and we splashed and played together in it !

Now today she's shopping with my Laura ! Sheeesh - this is not how I planned our vacation together ! Luckily though, Laura has to work this afternoon so that means mom will be home early - I wonder if there'll be more presents ?

What do you mean mom hid downstairs ? That's not fair ! You need to be out playing with her ! Come on down then - I've got time today and by tomorrow mom will be there too !

Have a good Tuesday - give all in your house my love ! Cookie

Yes, it's hard to blog during the Milongas. But, since May 9th is has been bad on a daily basis and so the Milongas are worse!
Today was another nice day. But, I had to go to the vet for a recheck. I have one more day of meds and I'm done. Mom filed my bottom beak and the vet was happy with the way it looked. He said I was doing greyt. That sure took up most of the day (150 miles round trip)! Tomorrow we all have to leave the house twice for people to see our house. Mom says we can have a treat and maybe go to the park.

“Hello Every Birdie! Today we are visiting Paris, France. Our first stop is going to be the Musée d'Orsay Museum. Let’s go!” They arrive at the museum, which used to be the Orsay Railway Station. They look through the museum, and see lots of art from the 1848s to 1914. Next they head over to the Tuileries Garden. They take a stroll through there, and it is lovely. After that, they go to see the Arc De Triomphe. The arc is big and beautiful. After they are done viewing that, they visit the Louvre Museum, one of the largest museums in the world. Inside, there is lots of artwork. They see the Mona Lisa, which makes Cookie very excited. When they are finished there, they take a tour of the Paris Catacombs. The Paris Catacombs are underground ossuaries, which hold the remains of about six million people. The tour is cool, but creepy. Next they visit the Musée Marmottan Monet. The museum features a collection of over three hundred impressionist and post-impressionist works by Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Edgar Degas, Edouard Manet, Alfred Sisley, Camille Pissarro, Paul Gauguin, Paul Signac, and Pierre Auguste Renior. After touring through the museum, they head over to see the Eiffel Tower. The tower is big and gorgeous. They visit the second floor of the tower, and look down at Paris. It is beautiful. After that, they eat dinner at a delicious French restaurant, and then head to a hotel. – Thanks for voting! See you tomorrow! Hugs, Jester

  Hi Polly
Falcons are more closely related to parrots than they are to other raptors like eagles. It's surprising, because superficially at least, they resemble eagles and hawks more than us.
We had some sun today, for about 2 hours, but now it's cloudy and threatening rain again. It's in the low 70s, which is really low for this time of year.
Mom was scheduled for the RVS room again today. She cleaned and fed 23 raccoons and a skunk baby, but that was only about half the room. She left a note for her replacement person on the daily schedule to let her know what was done. With raccoons, sometimes it's hard to tell if they have been cleaned or not, especially after they are fed. They paint themselves and each other with the food, fling it around, just make a mess in general. Mom moved some of the animals around while she was cleaning, so she had to keep track of their charts. Charts are hung on the walls now, to keep them out of reach of curious raccoon hands, so it's easy to switch them around.
Mom did get to the pool for about 2 hours, but it got really dark, so she packed it in and came home to shower and blog for us.
Carol(Cori and Booboo's mom) lost her dog Cookie this morning. They made the decision to put her down because she was not eating any more. It would be nice to drop by Cori's or Booboo's page and offer condolences.
I hope you are having a good day and getting some sun and cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Polly
SweetPepper's mom did our group pic, and believe it or not we dug out our couples pic from our archives. It was done by Maxie the Wonderbird's mom. Remember her? She threw a party of some kind and did that pic for us. It was amazing, I think.

Well, once again my stubborn ways resulted in no sunbath (although I did get to share a cookie with my mom while she was trying to coax me into the outside carrier). It is another hot one here (aloready 93 at 11AM), and it is humid too. So Mom has already told me that 10:30 was the cut off, and it has come and gone. How much you want to bet I will climb in to my outside cage around 2 this afternoon and wonder why we can't go outside?

Dad has a short work week, since he starts his vacation on Thursday. 11 whole days of Dad being around the house! I may not survive the trauma. If Mom pays too much attention to him, I think a bite is totally in order...the only question is do I bite Mom or Dad?

After she gave up on the sunbath, Mom made her deep dish blueberry pie and it is baking away right now. She wanted to do it early so the kitchen could cool back down before Dad gets home from work. Do I sense a theme of favoritism going on here? I am thinking I need a picket sign, and I am taking suggestions for the wording on it.

  Hello Polly~
I hope you are having a great day! Sorry we didn't get over yesterday. Mom was so tired and we didn't get anything done.
Still hot here but yesterday some clouds rolled in and it was nice in the house. Mom could have slept really well if that Tree Kitty didn't come back and get Merlin howling!
Mom is really not worried about Merlin hurting me but me hurting him! I try to get him to come over to the cage so I can bite him!! Mom says it's better to be safe than sorry so he gets locked up when they leave.
Mom has to go to the market is a while since there isn't much food in the house. She use to go on Friday since she was off but now that she is off on Tuesday and Wednesday she didn't go. Everyone ate everything except for the bowl of watermelon. I think watermelon is pretty cool!
Have a great day!

  Hi Polly
It's Popeye.
Dad was hoping for something to do where he could be useful. All he did was just drive around and listen to other officers on the radio writing traffic tickets. However, Dad's sergeant says that dad helps prevent crime just by driving around. The bad guys see him and go some place else to do their dirty work.
The heat and humidity continue to pound us. Yesterday hit 98 degrees. Dad picked yesterday to scrub the kitchen floors. He blamed the mess on us. Now we ask you, "How could we birds mess up a floor?" Mom worked at the police station, trying to get caught up. She said that she was caught up through June. That's June of LAST YEAR! Dad picked up mom around 5pm and they were both so hot and tired that they didn't fix anything for dinner. Around 8pm they ate the rest of the strawberries. Hey, what about us? Don't we get any?
Bob is coming by today, to go back to Aaron Brothers so he can "modify" his frame order. We can hardly wait to see how this works out.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 90 and a low of 67.
Hope your day was fun.

  good morning Polly
and it is too ! It's Monday - mom is out of school and the sun is returning after a weekend of rain :) Plus, although mom is going off visiting today and shopping with the niece tomorrow . . . daddy is staying home with me - he doesn't have to go in till Wednesday.

It was supposed to clear up yesterday and never did :( But we had an indoor picnic with hamburgers and corn on the cob anyway ! Then I schemed to try to find a way that mom couldn't close my cage door. I kept hanging toys so they'd get caught up in it ! Mom says I'm so clever ! I say it's about time she realized it !

Have a great day :) love Cookie

“Hi Every Birdie! Today we are visiting Keystone, South Dakota. Our first stop is going to be Big Thunder Gold Mine. Let’s go!” They arrive, and tour the authentic 1890’s gold mine. During their tour, they learn about mining and Gold Panning from their tour guide. It is very interesting! After the tour of the mine, they visit the Mining Museum. The Mining Museum is a replica of the Tykoon Gold Mine build in 1895. Inside is the largest collection of equipment from gold mining in the Black Hills. It is very cool to look through. After the museum, they get to try gold panning. They get a lesson on how to do it, and they all find a little bit of gold. When they are all finished there, they head over to visit Mount Rushmore. They walk the Presidents Trail, and see many different views of the iconic mountain. After climbing a lot of stairs, they have a gorgeous up-close view of the Mount Rushmore National Memorial. They see the faces of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. After observing it and taking plenty of pictures, they take the trail back. After, they visit the Gutzon Borglum Historical Center, and learn all about the sculptor of Mount Rushmore. After that, they tour the National Presidential Wax Museum. They see life-size realistic wax figures of all of the presidents, and it is very cool. They take pictures with some of the figures, and Finnegan gives some of them bunny ears in the photos. After that, they eat dinner, and check into a hotel. – Thanks for voting! See you tomorrow! Hugs, Jester

Oh yeah, they call us Velcro birds cause we are stuck to our moms ... silly moms!
Sunday was a good day on the patio. Mom and I sat out and enjoyed some snacks. We watched the chipmunks run around the patio and jump up to the fountain for a drink. Monday should be a nice day too except, I have a check-up at the vets!

  Hi Polly
Well, it was supposed to be a little cooler here today, but at 97 out there, the weather idiots once again missed it by a mile. Because of the forecast Mom didn't fight with me about going outside before she left for the gym, but by the time she came back outside after zumba it was baking. So I will not be going out today in spite of climbing right into my carrier when she came in to sit with me after her shower. Darn it!

I hope everybirdy had as much fun at the milonga last night as I did. I was very honored to receive two awards, and I assure you that Mom and I were very careful to count accurately. In fact, I did not vote for our couples pic at all, although I did vote for my group pic several times because I was so proud of the job SweetPepper's mom did on it. And congrats to all of our other winners. Princess Lalo sure looked lovely graciously receiving her 1st place, and I was so pleased to see Dixie's troubadour pic win. The tie in warriors between two of my favorite birdies, Panther and Jennie Lynn, was greyt also. And Pearl and Silver literally swept the Knights category. I do have to say that presenting the Best Overall trophy to my dear friend Kaji was terrific. Lizzie was so proud of him! And how about that music? Sam and the Scruffy Birds outdid themselves last night. And despite all Lizzie's grumbling about cooking Ren foods, I notice not a scrap was left over after everybirdy went home.

Now I have to say I was lucky to even make it to the milonga, because Mom went to a Zumbathon yesterday afternoon. It lasted for 2 1/2 hours, although Mom only lasted for an hour and 45 minutes. She was still really pooped when she got home, so doing the milonga was definitely a labor of love. And when she woke up this morning? She had a very tough time getting out of bed because she was so stiff and sore. So what does she do? Goes right back to the gym for more weights and zumba. The woman is just plain nuts, if you ask me (but no one ever does!!)

What a fun milonga it was. The music by Sam and the Scruffy birds was perfect, the food by Lizzie was delicious, Kiddo and Taz made a wonderful party happen once again. Thanks to everybirdie who made it possible. Congratulations to the winners in the picture contest, too. It was tough voting, we voted for everyone, so probably didn't help anyone to win, but all of the pics were so creative.
It's another cool rainy day today. Mom may go for her mani/pedi or she may find something to do here, like start packing up the kitchen. You never know with her.

Yesterday we actually had some sprinkles. Not even close enough to made anything wet but just the same, it IS water falling from the sky.
Mom and dad both worked at the police station. Mom went in early to learn a new job and dad went about an hour later. Mom liked what she learned but dad's day was boring. No action on the streets. For dinner they went to Senior Compo's.

“Hi Every Birdie! Today we are visiting Ontario, Canada. Our first stop is going to be the Royal Ontario Museum. Let’s go!” They arrive at the museum, and explore it. They visit the Eaton Gallery of Rome, the Sigmund Samuel Gallery of Canada, the Bat Cave, the Pompeii Volcano Exhibition, and other cool galleries and exhibits. Next they head over to the CN Tower. There, they do the EdgeWalk, which is a hands-free walk around the tower’s main pod. It is 1168 ft above the ground. It is a scary for some of them, but others love it! After that, they head to the Toronto Zoo. They visit the Tundra Trek and see Polar Bears, Arctic Wolves, European Reindeer, and Snowy Owls. They visit the African Rainforest and see Naked Mole Rats, Egyptian Fruit Bats, Spotted Necked Otters, and Speckled Mousebirds. At the Canadian Domain they see Canada Lynx, Grizzly Bears, American Moose, and Wood Bison. They also visit some other animals, which they enjoy. After the zoo, they visit Niagara Falls. They watch the beautiful waterfalls, and they are stunning. Such a beautiful sight for the birdies to see! When they are done at the falls, they head over to the National Gallery of Canada. At the gallery, they see lots of beautiful and interesting artwork and sculptures. They enjoy browsing through. After, they visit Casa Loma. They tour the beautiful place, and then eat dinner at the Terrace Grill. After that, they head to their hotel. – Thanks for voting for me! See you tomorrow! Hugs, Jester

Where is your mom going? I did the Velcro bird thing tonight too.
What a night ... BC was acting terrible and our internet crashed! I missed most of the milonga and had to go back and read the blogs.
Today was nice, sunny and low 70's ... it spiked up to 78 for a short time. Mom hopes that we might get to eat out on the patio on Sunday, that would be nice.
Thanks every bird for all the votes, it was very nice to make it to the 25K.
Well, it has started tonight ... the summer people are shooting off fireworks ... I don't like those loud bangs ... they echo thru the hills and lakes. This will go on for two weeks!

i am behaving. as a matter of fact i am like velcro on moms neck. i have been busy preening moms face because it is quite a mess

when we first started with the IV fluids for our doggie we were using a higher gauge needle and it was hurting doggie and then afterwards she was bleeding. the vet has now given us a lower gauge needle and it doesn't hurt the doggie and she isn't nearly as upset when we give her the fluids and there isn't any blood now. doggie is much more alert and now drinking on her own. we just got a new food from the vet for doggies with kidney problems from science diet and doggie really likes the food. we will continue with the iv fluids until doggies appointment with vet to check her levels to see how she is doing next thursday.

I hope you are having a fun day! Both yours and Zippy's beach pictures are beautiful! I just love the bright blue ball she has and the lovely starfish you have!
I got put in the play cage when mom left to take Jennifer down to her dads and Merlin got locked in the bedroom. Mom put his food and water in there for him since it takes her a little over an hour to go and come back. Merlin is still trying to be my bestest buddy so when everyone is gone, he is going to get locked up. When mom got back he was sleeping on the bed so I don't think it bothered him much!!!

  Hi Polly
I'm picky, so as far as I'm concerned you can have all the strawberries.
Hope mom can do the exercises and keep up with her own PT regimen, it will help her to get stronger.
Last night mom's nephew came to check the electricity in the kitchen. There is already a dedicated line for the stove, so he just needs to put in a few GFI outlets and it will be ready. Mom gave him a picture of the tile so he can match colors when he looks for flooring. To think this all started because mom wanted to replace cabinets! Now it's a whole kitchen makeover.
Update on the peregrine: He seems to favor one leg, so when the vet checks him out, hopefully he will find something that can be fixed.
It's a rainy day, with rain predicted for the next several days, so no pool or outdoor work will happen. Mom and the dogs got soaked on their shortened walk this morning.
We are looking forward to the milonga tonight, it should be a grand time at the Renaissance Faire! Our flock is ready to see what they can do tonight. Hope to see you there! Hugs, Falco

It's Popeye.
That's dad's job to find out what the critter is. Dad thinks a mouse. We had the problem about three years ago.
When dad took the wrapping off of one of the new frames if fell apart. It looked as if someone had dropped it. Dad packed it back up and took it back to Aaron Brothers, along with the picture it was going to be put in. He also took the one picture that he and mom couldn't find a frame for. Dad showed them the frame and told to go pick out any frame he wanted. He found a nice frame but it was more expensive. They told dad that dad could have the more expensive frame at no extra cost, for his trouble. Dad also found exactly the frame that mom wanted for the other picture. Aaron Brothers is a pretty good place to shop.
Today will be clear, with a high of 86 and a low of 60. Mom and dad are working at the police station today.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Hi Polly and Zippy!
“Hi Every Birdie! Today is our third and final day in Orlando, Florida. We are going to visit Universal and Islands of Adventure, but first, I have something special planned. Come with me!” Jester takes his friends to a field, and there they see a large hot air balloon! Jester tells them that they are going to take a ride in it, and then have a breakfast picnic. Once they are all in the basket, it starts slowly going up, and up, and up. Soon, they are high up in the air, and it is a beautiful view. They float high in the sky for about 45 minutes, before the hot air balloon starts to head back to the ground. As they get closer to the ground, they realize that they aren’t landing in the field where they took off; they are landing in an orange grove! When they get to the ground, they find that a picnic blanket spread out with lots of yummy breakfast foods, and they get to pick oranges to eat with it! When they finish their picnic, Zippy and Polly ask if they could take some oranges home for their mom, and Jester tells them that if any of them want to take oranges home, they can pick them and they will be sent to the hotel. After, they head over to Universal Studios. When they arrive at the park, the first thing they go on is Minion Mayhem, a funny 3D ride. After that they ride Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit, an awesome roller coaster where they get to choose the song they listen to while riding. Next they ride Revenge of the Mummy, and watch Shrek 4D. Next they go to watch Fear Factor Live. During the show, they host of the show asks for a volunteer who isn’t afraid of bugs. Cappy raises his wing, and they invite him to come down to the stage. On the stage, they have Cappy sit with a big hairy spider on his head for a full minute! But he doesn’t mind, and does it like a champ. After, they ride Men in Black Alien Attack, and the Simpsons Ride. Next they head over to Diagon Alley, where they look through all the shops, and then they ride Escape From Gringotts. After that, they take the Hogwarts Express over to Islands of Adventure. They enjoy the train ride, especially the Harry Potter fans! When the train arrives at Islands of Adventure, they get off a go to Hogwarts. They walk through the big castle, and then ride Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. Next they go on Jurassic Park River Adventure, and they get wet on that. After that they go on the Cat in the Hat Ride, High in the Sky Trolley, and Caro-Suess-El, and then go on the Amazing Spiderman 3D ride. Then they go on Doctor Doom Fear Falls, and the Incredible Hulk roller coaster. After that, they eat dinner at one of the small cafes, and then leave to go back to their hotel. – Thanks for voting! Tomorrow we will be visiting another state. See you tomorrow! Hugs, Jester

  Hi Polly
We aren't having rain right now but it's only low 70's thru Monday. Still not warm enough to go to the beach!
It was a nice day today. But we didn't get any patio time. Some people came to look at our house. So, I went with my parronts for a drive and hung around town with them. Then we went to the park on the lake so, it was pretty good day.
Hugs
Chyna

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

  Hi Polly
Well, no sun bath today. Mom tried everything she could think of to get me into my outside carrier, but I wasn't having it. She even had eggstra time to try this morning, because Becky her trainer was at the eye doctor and couldn't do their session, so Mom left later than usual for zumba. Did not matter, and when she got home it was way too hot (94) in spite of the 86 the weather idiots predicted. Maybe tomorrow.

The voting is all finished in the Ren Faire Pic Contest, and I have to say it was very eggciting seeing who the final winners turned out to be. There were so many close races, although one pic was way out in front from day one of the voting. I will be sharing all the details with you tomorrow evening, so you really won't want to miss this milonga even if you don't usually come.

  Hi Polly
We will be here, there's no place else we can go. Mom already told the installers they need to put up a big plastic sheet between the kitchen and dining room to protect us. She will keep an eye out, too. If she can, she will take us outside on the porch for the day, each day they are here.
It has been a glorious afternoon, after a somewhat gloomy morning. Mom thought she'd have to stay home again today, after she got back from the center, but the sun came out, so she went to the pool for a couple of hours.
If you check out my gallery, you can see one of the newest patients at the wildlife center. It's a fledgling peregrine falcon! It glided down onto the Pitt campus yesterday from the nest on the Cathedral of Learning, a student spotted it, called a teacher, who called the Game Commission. They captured it and brought it to the center, where is is being evaluated. It is missing some secondary flights on the one wing, so they are going to have a vet look on Tuesday and go from there. The staff thinks there is new feather growth, so hopefully this baby is a short term patient and will be able to be released.
Mom cleaned that cage as well as all the others in the recovery room today. There are several ducks, mostly mallards, eastern box turtles, and a pigeon. The room is totally full!
The pool was quite refreshing today,as well. Mom and her sis ate at Red Lobster last evening, great meal.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and playtime. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.

  Hello Polly~
I hope you are having a fun day even with the collar on! Sorry about that but you did pretty well for a long time! I think you should still be proud of yourself!
You don't like measuring cups?? I have a set of lovely red Betty Crocker ones from the dollar store! They are one of my most favorite toys! You do have to be careful when you wave them because you might bop yourself in the face! I've only done it a few times! They are still loads of fun to play with! I hope you give them a try!
Enjoy your day sweetie!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Polly
It's Popeye.
Not too much to say about yesterday. Mom and dad went to Aaron Brothers to pick up some new frames. they are having a one cent sale so they got four frames for the price of two, plus two cents. Not a bad deal. Dad will frame the pictures today. Then dad went to Home Depot for some critter bait. Something is coming in during the night and drinking water out of the Bamboo plant. They scatter the little rocks all over the counter top. If they want a drink of water, that's fine. But at least they should pick up after themselves, don't you think?
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 86 and a low of 60.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye.
