  Hi Polly
It's so good to hear from you again. Is dad doing better? Sounds like mom needs to get a rest from yard work. Every time dad blows the leaves off the lawn and driveway, the next day the wind blows them back and the rain makes them stick!
Thank you every birdie for voting me BOTD! I'm enjoying my special pre-Halloween royal day.
The weather is already changing tonight. I will most likely wake to that cold white stuff on the ground :(
Wishing every bird a Happy Halloween and Breeder's Cup (Friday & Saturday) fun time.
Hot chocolate will be served in silver cups tonight.
Hugs

  October BOTM POST number twenty-four
Hi everybirdie, Jesse here with our second to last BOTM Adventure Post. Please remember to vote for our dear friend Ruby #35469 starting on November 1st. No doubt she has a really fun and interesting campaign ready to share with us all.
I looked eggcitedly at Tango, dressed as a Fairy, and hope rose in me that perhaps lacking a Wizard that the Book of Spells would listen to her and help save our friends.
Jenny-Lynn reads the spell to herself and takes a BIG breath. " We need to lat every bird out in order from biggest to smallest. Then we have to read the spell and Tango twirls her magic wand, just so, and I think, it should work."
"Oh, we have to make this work. I don't want my Poppa Sky a pickle forever and ever" BonBon says a tear in her little black eyes.
"It'll work. It h as too." Jesse says, certain that if anything was going to work, then the Book of Spells was it. " Let's lay everybirdie out. The book says, Biggest to smallest. So we start with your Poppa Sky and go down from there to the tiniest one."
Carefully the remaining birdies placed their friends in a line on the Castle floor. It took some rearranging but eventually everyone was happy with the order, and certain everybirdie was set according to their size. " OK JL, now what do we do?" Spot asks
" I read the Spell, and that should be it." Jenny-Lynn replies. She re-reads the words before starting out loud. "Let every whatnot that was what-so, turn once more from whence it goes to where it now should be!"
Tango flicks her wand and the room flashes with light, and bells chime, smoke puffs up and "WHAMO" everybirdie is returned to themselves. " Oh, I'm me again" Cookie says, " hey Lizzie, you almost ate me" Lizzie shrugs her shoulders, "I was hungry" Kiddo returned to himself once more looks everywhere for Sweetpepper but she is no where to be seen. " Where's Sweetpepper?" he asks sadly, then realizing that Cori, Sugar and the others aren't there either he turns to Jesse.
"We must get the Macaw guards and return to the Corn Maze to find our friends!"
"FRIENDS?" asks Tango
"yes Sugar, Cori Cydney, Snowflake, Gus and Pepper. Apache, Sweetpepper,and our friend Pearl are all missing. They simply vanished while we were in the Corn Maze."
Just then Kiddo and Jesse hear laughter and chattering coming from outside in the Rose Garden. Everyone follows them as they rush out the door of the Magic Room into the sunlit beauty of the Royal Gardens. There, all their friends are relaxing, laughing and enjoying themselves.
"What happened to all of you. We have been worried sick that a monster got you." Jesse asks
"Monsters?" Sugar and Cori reply, " NO, DIDN'T YOU GUYS SEE ALL THE EXIT SIGNS?????"
"Exit signs?" Sky asks confused, " what exit signs"
"There were signs all over the place that said, " this way to the Castle" Gus exclaims, " you must have seen them?"

  Morning Polly !
A cold front came through last night on the heels of a little rain . . . down into the 50's today and even colder for the weekend ! The weather guessers say that Saturday night there may even be a few flakes ! NO ! Not only cold, but darker nights ? I guess the winter is here, huh ?

I was pretty cranky last night - didn't know what I wanted to do and just kept squawking about everything that wasn't a head skritch ! Mom tucked me in early ! At least I'm ready for today now :) Hope you have a good one ! Maybe mom will get your smaller collar done ?

Congratulations to our lovely friend Chyna ! love Cookie

  October BOTM POST number twenty-three
Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with our Humpday BOTM Adventure Post. What a relief to see Spot back with us, only to have the the rest of you disappear before our eyes. There is something funny going on around here.
I was just about to cheer for joy that we had found Spot when I heard Cookie say, "I wish I had a jelly donut" and zuzam he became a jelly donut.
"NO LIZZIE" I screamed just in time to stop Lizzie from making a quick snack of our friend cookie. " that's Cookie? I think!"
Everywhere I looked there was something new where a moment before a birdie had stood. Sky was a big green dill pickle, there were cookies, peanuts, shoes, and all sorts of funny things, and of course Cookie the jelly-filled doughnut. Now, I know that this corn maze has been one unusual adventure but there was definitely something odd happening, and I was determined to find out what. With Spot, BonBon, Jenny-Lynn and a few other remaining birdies, we carefully gathered our friends up, and placed them into our backpacks to take to the Castle. BB threw Sky, the pickle, over her shoulder. "I told him if he didn't stop eating so many one day he'd turn into a pickle."
"Ok, we have everyone? Let's get to the castle. I know that the Book of Magic spells there must have a way to turn them back to themselves." to myself I said "I hope!" and off we went along the wide road. The Castle drew ever closer as we hurried to reach it's safety and save our friends.
Finally at the Castle, we made no waste of time to rush in the gates and into the main hallway. Queen Angel was there to greet us. "Where is everybirdie? Did you enjoy the Corn Maze?"
With a quick explanation about our friends we headed to the Magic Room, a place created by Queen Angel during her stay this month. As we filed into the room, lauded down with the backpacks filled with our changed friends we saw Tango there, dressed as a pretty Fairy. She was startled to see all of us there in the Magic Room.
"Hello Jesse, Hi everyone, how do you like my Fairy Halloween Costume?" she asks happily, then in her wings we saw it, Kiddo's Merlin the Wizard's magic spell book. Tango happily reads a spell from it, as butterflies and flowers magically appear.
"Tango, don't do that" Jenny-Lynn says quickly, " that Book is filled with Spells and magic incantations that only Kiddo knows. Then she remembered the Magic wand that had been Kiddo and she reaches into her backpack and retrieves it carefully. She takes the big Book of Spells from Tango and wing-tips through the pages. "Nothing. Nothing here about changing birds back to themselves.' she continues to look when suddenly she sees the page she was looking for, "here, this is it, " How to Undo What's Been Done" She reads it carefully. It says we need a Wizard?"
"Oh No, we have none right now. WAIT! Maybe a Fairy will do?" Jesse says eggcitedly looking at Tango

  Hi Polly
It is supposed to hit 90 here today, but it is only 85 now and Mom took me out at 12:30 for my sunbath. It felt just fine, so I think the weather geeks are off again. Good thing. 90 degrees at the end of October is just wrong, even for So Cal.

After the sunbath we came in and had Ziti Marinara for lunch. It was not all that good, but Mom is just so thrilled to be able to eat tomato sauce again she really didn't care. The sauce was not to my taste, so she would lick it off a piece of pasta and give the clean pasta to me. So we both got plenty to eat.

And now I am doing my daily dictation from Mom's knee. I have gotten so well-behaved lately, Mom keeps asking if I am doing drugs! Silly Mom; where would I get them and what would I use to pay for them? She will be leaving for the gym from 4-6, and then I will probably wish I had some drugs. I do get her from when she gets home until bedtime though, so that's good.

  Hi Polly
Mom got a flyer with coupons from Barnes and Noble. One of them was for an e book, and one was for cheesecake, the other 2 were for an additional 20% off. She tossed the cheesecake one, used one of the 20% ones, and her sis gave her the other e book coupon, so she bought 2 of them.
Yesterday mom went out with her sister to Barnes and Noble, she got 2 ebooks for $6.99 each, including the new Anne Rice! She also bought other books, of course, because it's never enough with her! They had sandwiches instead of whole dinners, then came home where we had mom for the rest of the night. Today she's going to get a haircut, then pick up that lamp. Remember that lamp? Well, it isn't the cord, the store called and said they can't repair it. She will talk to the guy today and see what's wrong. If it's a matter of finding a lamp repair place, she will give it a shot, because it's an Ott light, not cheap!
It's gotten a lot cooler and really cloudy today, temps are going to be in the 50s. Yesterday it was around 80 and gorgeous. Oh well, it IS fall, after all.
I hope you are having a good day and getting snuggles and kisses. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Polly
It's Popeye.
Yes, dad was actually scared that a car would not slow down in time and hit one of the cars. But it didn't happen and everything was done safely.
Forgot to mention that yesterday was free movie day. Mom and dad saw "The 100 Foot Journey". It's a story about a family that moves from India to France and opens an Indian restaurant right across the road from a high class French restaurant. It was a very good movie.
Mom didn't feel good so they came home, fixed leftovers for dinner and relaxed.
Today mom and dad are going to drive to San Pedro harbor and check out a tall ship that is part of the Mexican navy. It's in port for a few days and there are free tours.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 87 and a low of 69.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Hi Polly
mom had quite the scare tonight. she was making dinner and dad was at the park with the dog. dad was waiting for a phone call from the vet so right in the middle of preparing the food the phone rang so mom dropped everything to answer it. it was the vet and mom and mom told the vet to call back in about 30 minute. then mom went back to preparing dinner. she had been reheating dinner rolls in the microwave and had taken the plastic microwave food warmer cover out and was placing it on the counter when the phone rang and had hurriedly thrown it down to answer the phone. well she hadn't turned off the one burner on the stove and the plastic cover was in the process of melting because one side of it was against the stove burner. all mom could think of was all my birds are going to die. she grabbed the melting cover, turned off the stove and went running out of the house with it. she was moving so quickly she tripped over one of the pet gates and almost broke her neck. she then put on the stove vent fan full blast and luckily since it was 72 outside she opened up all the sliding glass doors to air the room out. she had also unplugged the burner and taken that out on the porch as some of the plastic had melted on it. once the burner cooled mom then scrapped off the melted plastic which had hardened by this time.she then threw away all our dinners except dads. he said he didn't smell anything when he came in the house. mom hopes she acted fast enough and there aren't any lingering ill effects from this

  October BOTM POST number twenty-two
Hi everybirdie, Jesse here with your Too'sday BOTM Adventure Post. It's a greyt day with the Castle so close, and the BC lake and all these squawk-atiels flying by with birdie's blogs. We are so close to safety with makes a bird happy.
Spot yells as loud as his Tiel voice will allow him, and realizes that nobirdie can hear him. No birdie that is but Lizzie, the Dragon can. Dragon's are magical so she can hear Spot calling for help.
Spot thinks to himself, " I must get their attention that I'm here, I KNOW what to do! "Spot decides maybe he can touch the other birds! "If they can't hear me, or see me, maybe they can feel me!" He runs up to BB and touches her on the leg.
"Hey! whose messing with my leg! " Bb yells startled by the sudden touch. This gets Sky's attention and he runs over and looks around! He searches but nobirdie is there.
"I don't see anybirdy, BB. Maybe you imagined it! " Sky tells her, trying to calm her down.
Spot tugs on Jesse's tail and he yelps "Owwww! " Jesse whirls around quickly, but nobody is there.
Everybirdy starts looking for the invisible toucher!
Suddenly, Jenny says," hey, whoever it is just beat out Morse code for SOS! Now they're beating out "It's me Spot! I'm invisible!"
"Good grief, Spot! Well, come on, hold my wing and we'll go to the castle and figure this out" Spot reaches out and grasps Jenny-Lynn's wing, and holds on tight, afraid he'll be left behind.
Jesse frowns as he continues to walk towards the Castle. As he walks he thinks about his missing friends. "How could birdie's vanish inside a corn maze?"
"Jesse, we're almost to the Castle. Once we get help we'll go back to find Sugar, Cori, Cydney, Snowflake, Gus, Pepper, Apache, Sweetpepper and Pearl. We'll find them." Hulk says
"LOOK!" BonBon calls out, " I can see the Castle walls. SPOT, we'll be there soon, and we'll figure out how to make you visible again."
"I can see him" Lizzie tells Kaji and Gus.
"That's because you're a Magic Dragon Lizzie." Kaji tells her with a smile.
As they walk, Sky begins to think about the pickles he'll eat once he gets to the Castle and they find their friends. "I wish I had a pickle right now." "Phuuufffff. Sky turns into a Pickle"
BB screams, as she watches Sky change into a pickle. Just as she sees her Sky change, Chyna turns into a pair of comfortable shoes, Panther turns into an Army Tank, Kiddo changes into a magic wand, Dixie and Little Angel become a scooter. Everybirdie who made an "I wish..." had become what they had wished.
"OH NO!" BonBon cries "I wish I could see Spot right now" Spot appears before her. "Can you see me Spot?" BonBon asks.
"Of course I can" Spot says, hugging his fister, then remembering he isn't suppose to like her too much, he straightens up, " where'd all these things come from?"

  Hi Polly
Well, this morning's breakfast was full of fresh fruit just like yesterday. When Mom went by Trader Joe's on Sunday she picked up a package of mango, pineapple and papaya for us to share. I ate most of what she gave me yesterday, but today I just pulled it out of my dish and dumped it. Who knows why?

Mom is in a very good mood today, because her Redskins beat the Cowgirls (sorry Dallas fans, but Mom grew up in D.C. suburbs) last night in OT. It was a very exciting game with Colt McCoy the 3rd string QB starting. Turns out maybe he should be the back up to RGIII instead of Kirk Cousins.

For those of you who could care less about football, know that I had a lovely sunbath at 11:15 today and after we came inside at noon Mom fixed a tamale frozen lunch which also has a rice, corn and peas mixture with it. Nothing not to like in that!! And although a bit spicy, no ill effects on Mom's tummy. She is so stoked!!

  Hi Polly
I hope you talk mom into a smaller collar, if you're more comfortable in that.
It's a beautiful day today, when mom walked the dogs she got too warm in her jeans and came home to change into shorts. She is still wearing her squirrel whisperer tee, though, in honor of squirrels this month. Later today, mom will go out with her sister for a late lunch and a little shopping. Both of them got Barnes and Noble coupons in the mail, and since that's one of their favorite stores, they will go there, and maybe a few other places as well.
We need to have our cages scrubbed today, according to mom, so that means we'll be spending time rearranging things to our liking.
Mom got a pomegranate and cut into it today. It's too bad I won't eat it, Willie, Maxine, and Peppino dove right into their portions! (That's one of the reasons for the scrub down today, heehee.)
I hope you are enjoying some good weather today, and getting lots of scritches and cuddles, too. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Polly
It's Popeye.
Yesterday was a nice day. Not to hot. Not too cold. Mom and dad worked at the police dept. and dad drove all day with the windows down. Dad's day started out slow. One of the things they have to do is get the patrol car washed if it's dirty. Dad sat at the car wash for 45 minutes waiting for the car to be finished. Then the day started to be boring. Dad had to check to make sure that the two way radio was turned on. There were just no calls. Then, around 3:30pm there was a traffic accident at the other end of the city from where dad was at. Dad got there as quickly as he could and set up traffic cones to re-rout traffic around the accident. But cars were coming down the hill way too fast and dad had to move the cones three times to give the cars enough time to slow down. Dad was actually afraid that they would run into the back end of his patrol car. Thankfully they didn't. The officers were able to take their reports and the tow trucks were able to safely take the cars away. That's why dad is out there. To help make the officers job a little easier.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 83 and a low of 60. Dad's going to cut up some of the grapefruit tree branches and mom's going to clean the last two cages.
Hope your day is fun.

  Hey Polly !
I especially think the collar is cute from the back ! LOL ! Look at those tail feathers :)

It's Tuesday - mom's almost humpday - it will be in a couple weeks when her drama club starts up. Then she won't be getting home till after 5:00 ! with NO breaks ! Wednesdays are easy - there are 2 breaks in her day - gym and computer !

We have a really nice day coming up - sunny and high 60's ! Of course by the weekend down into the 40's ! brrrr - that means my days of being near the window are drawing to a close - it's ok at night cause the drapes are drawn and my cage is covered - but once temps dip during the day my cage gets moved to the other side of the room and I don't get to yell at the kids getting the school bus :(

Have a good Tuesday - go see page 231616, Name That Tune, and see how many spooky Halloween songs you know ! Speaking of spooky Halloweens - I saw you gracing Jesse's page ! Looking good super hero Polly !love Cookie

  Hi Polly
i think all you need to do with the flax is sprinkle a little on their fruit and veggies. when our dad cleans out the furnace room the first things he ttys to throw away is anything that belongs to mom. mom then goes and brings it all back in.

  Hi Polly
Thanks for congratulating me! That was so funny that no one else ran in that category! I thought Zippy should have run in the comical category! They had the funniest costumes! The milinga was a lot of fun and really scary! I was sad we had to leave early becos there was a big party here at our house. It was a quinceañera, 15 th b-day party which is basically a wedding with no groom. They do a church service and everything, pull out the stops! The party started here around 10pm and ended about 3:30 am and then there was the cleanup so my parronts were in the bed by 4:30. That is an early one actually, they usually go until 6-7 am. Also the time changed here and i never do well with that. Anyway there were around 170 people at the party and there was a sweet table with lots of candy, a chocolate fountain and apples covered with chamoy which is my moms' favorite. I didn't get a birdie bag though. Mom did make me pasta tonite which i just love! I was tired so i stayed in the comforter on my parronts' bed all day today.
Hope you have a nice evening and Picabo says to say hi to Zippy!
Hugs, Scion

  Hi Polly
Mom has seen Kili before, but it had been a while so she went to YouTube and watched the 20 tricks in 2 minutes video. Parrotsonally I think that Kili is a big show off, but Mom loves watching that performing little showboater.

Mom made it through training and all of zumba today.
Seems like that is what I can expect now....a whole hour of zumba after an hour with the trainer and me waiting at home. I am trying to convince her she doesn't need to go on Tuesdays, but we shall see if it works. Being cute and adorable and hard to leave is my strategy. Right now I am sitting on Mom's knee grinding my beak....it doesn't get any cuter than that, right?

We had pasta in marinara sauce for lunch. That is Mom's first shot at anything tomato since the surgery, and so far no heart burn. She is very optimistic that this really did cure the acid reflux.

And I got a very nice sunbath right after Mom's post-gym shower. It hit 81 here today, but I don't think it was that hot while we were outside. I never quibble about getting in my carrier anymore. Guess I finally realized that is the only way I am getting outside.

  Hi Polly
I agree with you that having to go through our galleries page by page is a pain in the tail feathers!Mom bought that for us when I was about 4 or 5 years old,through an add in Bird Talk Magazine.They still carry car seats for fids but they aren't as nice as this one is,the ones they have now don't have the tray underneath to catch the poop so you have to put a mat or something on the car seat to catch the poop.They too are made of PVC and are easy to clean.We absolutely love our car seat and refuse to ride in a carrier!Our harnesses and leashes are made by Feather Tether and they too were found in Bird Talk and Mom finally got to buy them here in one of our local pet shops,she also found them in PetCo about a two hour drive from here,they now have a harness body suit thing called the avian flight suit that has a diaper inside which is attached to the leash and harness part of it,they are more expensive and Mom doesn't like them as much as the feather tether!
I started feather picking when I was a baby just about a year old and Mom had me tested for all kinds of illnesses or viruses and I had none so the vet then told Mom to give me to an someone who would stay home with me all day!Mom was staying home with me all day!DUH!!So she went to another avian vet and he gave Mom derm caps(liquid) for me and I was on them for awhile and my feathers started growing back again!Derm Caps are for dogs and cats that have a problem with fleas,itchy skin,scratching etc.So I wore a collar 24/7 and had Derm Caps once a day,then Mom had to go away on vacation a few months later and she was gone for two weeks and when she came home my whole bare down to the skin chest was all filled in with feathers!So Mom figured I had dry skin and kept me hydrated and made sure I had a bath or shower everyday and sprayed me with aloe gel which she mixed in warm water to soothe my skin.Now they have what's called Feather In and that works wonderfully,its expensive but its worth the try,Mom has sent it to Peetie and Paulie's Mom for them and their feathers have grown back in and she sent it to Athena and Mackenzie and it worked for them also.If your feather follicles aren't damaged and you'd like to try some Mom will be more than happy to send you out some,its a botanical and there are no chemicals in it at all and its a skin softener also,you just let me know and Mom will send you out a package to try!Its a powder you mix in water and spray on three times a day.Those collars are so debilitating and I sure did HATE mine!
Oh does my Mom know what that's like and my dad isn't allowed to remove anything unless he asks my Mom first!We too have our big freezer in the garage and sometimes things get put in front of it and Mom can't even get close enough to get things out of it or into it!Now that's a greyt eggcuse to keep Mom trapped inside the house with you!LOL!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses,sweet Polly,Lo

  Hello Polly~
I hope you are having a fun day! Mom and I were giggling while thinking of your poor mom trying to find anything after dad cleaned out the garage. It happens around here too. I think it's a dad thing!!!
A smaller collar might be a good idea. They truly are just beautiful and your mom is so talented to be able to make them! You really do look so lovely in them!
Mom left for work at her usual time last night and didn't even make it a mile down the freeway when traffic stopped! There were sheriff cars on both sides of the freeway with their lights a flashing! Mom thought maybe an accident but didn't see any ambulance or fire department. She was nearly to the mall exit so she thought she would get off there and go down to the next on ramp but the sheriff's had the off ramp blocked too! And the street at the end of the off ramp was blocked also! After 15 minutes they moved and let traffic go and when mom drove by there were just lots and lots of sheriffs and state patrol no accident!
She looked up the story on the internet this morning and it said they had been chasing a 23 year old guy with a gun. He was in the forest area next to the freeway hiding out there. Mom got to work with just enough time to clock in!
The news story never said why they were chasing the guy, other than he had a gun. I don' think he shot at anyone but maybe he was trying to rob some place. Maybe they will print more of the story tomorrow. Mom said it was a pretty sure bet that not many officers were left a headquarters!
Have fun today!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Polly
Poor you, mom is only trying to keep you healthy and warm, sweetie.
What a football game yesterday! It was a real quarterback battle, and the Steelers tried to give it away in the second half, but they ultimately prevailed. Mom doesn't remember seeing such a high scoring pro game ever.
Today at the center, mom did all the RVS animals, because she was the only RVS person on the schedule for the day. She cleaned the outdoor raccoon cages, then went in to find the bat. At first she didn't see it, she peeked under the towels hanging from the sides of its terrarium and it wasn't there. Then she took out the tiny lid that was in the bottom of the cage with water in it. She was a little worried that the bat had escaped at this point. When she removed the water, she noticed a tiny lump in the towel at the bottom of the cage. She lifted it carefully, and the bat was there. It was laying directly on the heating pad, so the poor little one must have been cold last night. There was a frost here, but the furnace at the center usually kicks on. Maybe the heat didn't extend into the RVS room, or the bat just needed some extra heat. Anyway, it took a bit of effort to get it to start eating, but once it got started, it ate 20 mealworms. It's hard to imagine, but mom thinks with 20 mealworms you could probably construct a whole bat, so she doesn't know where the bat puts all that food. Maybe they have hollow legs or something, heehee.
If you think we birds eat a lot, you haven't seen bats eat.
After the center, mom mailed a package, then got gas and went shopping for a little lunch. Now she's home with us, and we get to blog. It's another beautiful day here, crisp and cool, but sunny. The lawn guys came today and cleaned up all the leaves, so the lawn looks as nice as the gardens do now.
I hope you are having a good day, getting some sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  October BOTM POST number twenty-one
Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with your Monday BOTM Adventure Post It was awesome to see so many of our friends at the Haunted Castle Tour Milonga on Saturday evening. We had a frightfully good time.
Sky scrambles up the ladder after the others are all safely together on the wide road above. Looking around carefully he sees that it indeed appears to be the road that leads tot he castle, the help in finding the others who are missing and Lizzie's kitchen, and an endless supply of pickles.
"Ok Jesse, let's get moving, we need to get to the Castle and get the Macaw guards. If we come back soon as we can, we'll all be a safely home by nightfall" Sky says encouragingly
BonBon tugs on Jesses wing! "Uncle Jesse? Are we gonna find Spot now?"
"We're sure to find him and all the others and if not, George the Tiger will help us find them!"
"OK," says BonBon, a little mollified.
Sky picks her up and says, "come on little one! You'll be safe with me!" Off they go down the wide road! Sky stops to pick up Dixie and L'il Angel, placing them onto his other shoulder. With the Castle so close everybirdie feels much happier and certain that all will be ok in the end.
"We should be at the Castle really soon. The Squawk-atiels are flying past more often now, we're definitely heading in the right direction." Jenny-Lynn exclaims
Spot hears the sound of the others in the distance and gets up from beneath the tall oak tree. He'd done what his Momma Rea had always told him to do if he got lost, " stay where you are until I find you" He was relieved to know that the others would be there soon, and he'd be safely back with his friends. He listens and can hear his Poppa Sky, Jenny-Lynn and even his fister BonBon. He smiles knowing she's so worried about him. "I know she'll never admit it" he says to himself.
"Come on everyone, let's hurry, the sooner we arrive at the Castle the faster we find help in locating our missing friends, and my wife-bird Sweetpepper" Kiddo calls out as he hurries to keep up to Jesse.
Spot watches as in the distance the group of friends grows closer and closer. He decides he should head their way and rejoin them and having made the decision heads off towards the south. Spot quickens his pace as the group grows nearer to him. He begins to call out, trying to get their attention.
"Did you hear something?" Lizzie asks Willie, " I'm sure I just hear something."
Willie looks in the direction Lizzie points, but seeing nothing he shakes his head, " No, maybe you thought you heard something Lizzie. No one's there."
Lizzie frowns. She is pretty sure she'd heard someone calling out for help. She walks along, listening to hear the voice again. "THERE!" she says, hearing Spot calling once more. Willie looks once more, still seeing nothing. "Lizzie, you're hearing things"
Spot calls out again, but no one, except Lizzie looks in his direction. "They can't hear me!"

  Hi Polly
It's Popeye.
I love your new collar.
Sunday was a rest day for mom and dad. We all had a nice, quiet morning and than mom and dad got ready and went to see War of the Worlds at the Curtis Theater in Brea. They really enjoyed the show. The cast followed the original script from 1938. When the show started, mom and dad noticed that a friend was one of the cast members. He is also the MC at the Brea Jazz Festival. When mom and dad were leaving dad said that he wished that they had been able to talk to him for a moment and just then, their friend walked out of the elevator. Good timing. Mom gave him a card with their email address on it and he's going to let them know when he does another show. From there, mom and dad went back to Rubio's and used their coupons for dinner.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 78 and a low of 57. Mom and dad are both working at the police dept. today.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Morning Polly !
Can you believe it's Monday already ? Where does the weekend go ? Granted, it was a great one, with Milonga and then baking yesterday . . . it turned out to be a perfect day for it. The weather guessers said sunny and 60's - it was overcast and blustery and only in the 50's. The whole house smelled so good with the apples in the oven. I played "Toss the measuring cups to the floor to see who will pick them up" and had mom and dad jumping ! ! !

I'm sorry about the new collar - but at least it's a real pretty one !

Have a terrific day - love you, Cookie

  Hi Polly
wow is that a big collar. i am glad you are still willing to eat. hs your mom ever tried adding flax seed to your diet? mom read that sometimes the vitamins from flaxseed will stop birds from messing with their feathers. mom has added it to Boo Boos food since Boo Boo doesn't pull out her feathers she chews them off and mom is so afraid Boo Boo will chew off a blood feather and bleed.

the Facebook book contest isn't doing that good. its called spooky bird.

last night since mom was having problems with the computer she decided to trim our nails. boy that sure wasn't any fun. mom said i screamed more than Boo Boo

love Cori
