  Hi Polly
HOWDY BC partners, Mikey D here as we ponder just how we're gonna save both Miss Falco and Jesse from the talons of some nasty outlaw member of Black Bart's gang. As we spread out to search every nook and cranny of this Old Ghost Town, Miss Falco is busy dealin' a nasty blow to her bird-napper.
"Oh, I am so angry about my friend Falco being birdnapped by that nasty ol' hawk. I can't wait to get my six-shooter pointed in his direction. We'll show him we don't take kindly to our friends being bushwhacked!" Kiddo shouts as he shoulders open the door to the blacksmith's shop beside the Livery stable. He and Angel-tiel bolt inside, guns at the ready. A group of birdies follow them inside as they check every inch of the ole' buildin' " nuthin' here, let's keep goin'"
Jesse can hear his bird-napper outside as they talk softly about what was takin' place back in town. He hears Falco's name mentioned and his anger grows. He tries to call out, but the cloth tied around his beak prevents him making a sound. He sits thinking for a moment then worried for Falco,
"I MUST get free and save Falco. That nasty, foul-smellin' Hawk's gonna find out who I am" with that Jesse begins to swarm and wiggle, working to loosen his bindings. He pulls and tugs and finally feels the ropes begin to give a little slack.
" Did that hurt?" Falco asks coyly, trying hard to find a grin, " a little ol' girl couldn't hurt someone as strong as you?" she giggles out loud, then seeing Hawk-eyes look, she stops with difficulty .
"You just be settin' there and behavin' Black Bart will be along right shortly to deal with ya and your band of goodie-two-shoes"
BB sneaks out the back door of the jail to do some lookin' around for Jesse on her own. "Maybe he is not even being held in this ghost town any more! There is a old mine shaft in the hills close by" so BB mounts Sundancer & heads out to do more scouting. Riding north, she works her way up towards the mine from the back end. Tying Sundancer to a bush she grabs her riffle from the scabbard and checks her six-shooter, then carefully makes her way to a large boulder just above the mine's entrance. There, she hankers down to listen carefully as she watches two of Black Bart's gang pacin' nervously back 'n' forth.
"We better leave Jesse here and go see to gettin' Bart outta jail." a small, wiry bird tells his partner, a gangly sea gull in ragged clothes. She sees his dirty hat nod, then both head towards the north east where their horses had been hitched. BB grins, "the horses are long gone towards the south west.' She chuckles softly to herself as she inches closer to the mine's entrance.
"If I were you I'd be lettin' me go mighty fast, my friends are headin' this way right now and it ain't gonna go well for you!" Falco tells her bird-napper. He peers out the dusty window, what he sees makes him cringe.

We watched Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris". They enjoyed the film, but I got bored and went to my Happy Hut.

  Hi Polly & Zippy
Howdy partners, no time to be talkin' not with Black Bart heading with his gang to the ole' jail. Pearl and Silver smile " What a greyt feeling to be taking Black Bart and his cronies to lockdown (where they deserve to be) but we cowbirdies still don't have Jesse back." BB is riding out of the mountains towards the ghost town when she sees Falco being jerked into the general store. by a scruffy-lookin' Hawk. She slaps Sundancer on the shoulder and encourage her into a gallop as she winds her way towards the Ghost Town. "What foul deeds are going on now" she thinks. BB rides around town to scout things out & sees a strange horse out back of the general store. On the other side of town BB sees Boss D & the wagon crews putten Black Bart's gang in the jail house. BB enters the jails back door and tells every birdie what see saw at the general store. "It seems we have 2 birds being held hostage now"
Everybirdie turns around alarmed at the sudden sound of BB's voice. The news that Miss Falco has been bird-napped shocks everybird silent. "Oh no, not Falco! We have to rescue her from that awful hawk. I don't like hawks at all, ' Kiddo exclaims
Mikey D looks from Kiddo to Sky, then to the others searching for an answer. " We must move fast. Jesse and Falco are somewhere in town. "BART!," he growls angrily, " where ya got Jesse stashed? and NO! funny talk or you and your cronies are gotten be sorry!"
Black Bart begins to laugh, " now ain't ya all in a real bind? If' 'n ya don't set us free, you ain't findin' either Jesse or this Miss Falco either!" his eerie laughter echos in the old jail house.
"We have your gang hog-tied outside in the wagons. You make us a trade, we'll let ya have your lice-bitten hooligans back!" Sky says, an anger fillin' his eyes like a wildfire. Cappy marches Bart and his hooligans into the jail cell and locks them up, sittin' down to keep watch so there is NO jail breaks! " Ya' ll set outta here to search, find Jesse and Falco. I'll make sure our guests are all comfy-cozy."
The team bolts from the jail, spreadin' out to search for their friends, now held captive. Raffikki turns to Cookie and Pookie, " I bet Falco can hold her own!" they laugh a small worried laugh, then fly down the street to search in the livery stable.
Falco sits quietly, eying her captor. " Ya know they're gonna find me, and you'll end up gettin' your tail-feathers trimmed?" she grins straighten up under his angry glare.
" Now, no sassin' from ya missie" he yells walkin' over to within inches of her beak.
"Bad move buster" she yells, as she stomps down on his toes with her cow-girl boots, bitin' him on the wing at the same time.
"OWWWW" Hawk-eye screams, hoppin' on one foot, holdin' his wing with the other."Now, you're gonna get it, no more carryin' on!"

  Hey Polly,
Sorry mom got booted off the BC before we could get started with the Bon fire! :(

But that's okay one more day with fun in the sun! Whooo hooooo!!!

Hopefully this Bon fire will go through. ;)

Meanwhile Papa Peter gets the wood together for the Bon fire while its still lighted so he can see where to put the logs so they burn all night long. He sets up logs for everyone to sit on around the Bon fire. This one will be a good one he says as its a special night. ;)

Cookie over hears Papa Peter saying that its gonna be a special night so he asks why??

Papa Peter turns around and sees Cookie standing there watching him. Hmmm he rubs his chin and says its a secret and I can't tell you but I'm sure everyone will like it and he smiles and walks away getting more wood for the Bon fire.

As it starts to get dark everyone gathers around the bonfire and its nice and cozy as mom passes everyone a cup of cocoa and a plate of brownies and pineapple cake.

Everyone oohs and ahhhhs as she comes around with the tray of goodies and hot cocoa.

After everyone eats and sips their cocoa they hear a loud bang!!!!!

What was that everyone looks around. Pookie says look out there up in the sky!!!

It's a fireworks display!!!! Wow!!! Whooo hooooo!! Everyone is amazed and eggcited to watch the fireworks going off.

There is chatter from every birdie after that wonderful egg citing display of fireworks.

Did you see the happy face one asks Dixie, that was soo cool!!

Sugar says I liked the whole thing !!!

Okay everyone, enjoy the night sky as its so nice and clear you can see the Big Dipper and others.

We pitch the tent to go back home tomorrow so lets get a good nights rest. Awwww everyone sighs.

But that doesn't mean that we can't come back.

Everyone claps yay. !!!!

Okay nighty night everyone !!

Mom kisses everyone around the fire before she and dad turns in. Pookie says the parronts sleep early as they get older these days.

Plus shhhhh but there's a surprise breakfast for us. But don't say anything okay??

Hugs and a vote.

Love,

Pookie and Laka

Come visit me, Angel Sallykins, Pookie says I'm back chillin' in moms shirt. :) & Laka says time to head on home in the morning.

  Hi Polly
HAPPY EARTHDAY
yesterday we had a phenomena occur where we live called grauple which are small pellets of ice created when supercool water droplets coat a snowflake which are cloudy or white in color and plop when they hit the ground. this usually occurs once or twice a year usually in the spring but it can occur in the fall. today it was more sleet since it was clear ice balls falling that bounced around when they hit the ground. this has now turned into a cold rain at 43 degrees

Make It Green
Lives are crying because it's not clean,
Earth is dying because it's not green...
Earth is our dear Mother, don't pollute it,
She gives us food and shelter, just salute it...
With Global Warming, it's in danger,
Let's save it by becoming a strong ranger...
With dying trees and animals, it's in sorrow,
Make green today and green tomorrow...
With melting snow, one day it will sink,
How can we save it, just think...
Trees are precious, preserve them,
Water is a treasure, reserve it...
Grow more trees, make Mother Earth green,
Reduce pollution and make her a Queen…


love Cori

  Hi Polly and Zippy
Hello everybirdie, Mikey D , driving like the wind towards that ole' Ghost Town and a confrontation with Black Bart the notorious robbing, murderin', cantankerous villain of the Old West. With his gang members stowed away in our wagon beds, we drive into the deserted town ready to come beak to beak with our cunning enemy.
Pearl & Silver are wondering eggactly how the tunnel birds are gonna get outta their predicament when they see Cappy wink. Looking around for some way to get out of the predicament they found themselves, the Tunnel Birds realize their time might be up, when Cappy, their leader comes up with a thought to save them all and capture Black Bart. "Well has Black Bart ever encountered a mad Cockatoo Scream?" Cappy thinks and then lets out the loudest highest pitch scream he can manage. He rushes Black Bart with Drawing Blood on his mind. Everybirdy around that Cockatoo screaming drops everything to cover their ears and wince in pain, giving the Tunnel Birds time to react as they were all wearing earplugs.
The Tunnel Birds rush Bart and his birds, grabbing their dropped firearms. Cappy glares at Black Bart, his gun pointed at the leader of the robbin' gangsters." Move i, there's an old cell over in the Sheriff's Office that has your name on it. You can stay there until Mikey D and the others decide what to do with you." Cappy points to the door with his gun barrel. Bart turns signaling his birds to follow him to the jail house. Moving as one for the door, Falco stands aside to let the group pass, then joining the others she follows along towards the jailhouse.
No one has seen Jesse yet, but once Bart and his gang were under lock they'd search for him and set him free. Falco stops as she sees Mikey D and the wagons rushing along the dusty, bumpy road, then out of no where a wing covers her eyes and beak, stopping her from screaming for help. The dark shadow drags her into the old General Store before letting her go. With gun pointing towards her, she turns to see her captor. A scruffy Hawk squints beady blacken eyes at her. His torn jacket covering dusty clothes, and the smell of him makes Falco's nose sting.
"WELL now Missie, whata we here?" the birdknapper says, " bet Mikey D and the others gonna give us what we want to save ya!"
Falco glares angrily, and straightens her clothes out, " How dare you grab me, you rotten dirt-bag"
"Now, now that ain't no way to be behavin' missie" the birdnapper taunts. " you just set right yonder, and keep quiet like, hear me?"
Mikey D pulls to a stop at the saloon, as the others stop and rush for the doors of the stores and hotel to search for hide-a ways. No one realized with all the action that Falco was missing.
"Where's Jesse?"

  Flitzer - Daddy has a bad start for his day
Locked Out!

Due to poor policy regarding keys [they never give keys to ANY of their staff] , nobody could enter the gym today.
This used to happen a lot - and we have begged Management to give a key to the Trustworthy morning staff. They refuse to do so.
Sadly, Dad has a very busy day with no opportunity to return later today.

  Hi Polly and Zippy
Howdy friends, Mikey d here, at Widow's Creek. It seems we've found us a peck of troubles with Black Bart and his gang of hooligans. All the cowbirds are on claw-tips waiting for the signal. When it happens they are all poised for action. Kiddo's fierceness and bravery gives them all a needed boost of courage as Badact ducks a bullet inches above his head. It was all the incentive the BC team needed, as they draw down on Black Bart's gang right there in the openin' at Widow's Creek.
With the echoing boom of Sky's double barrel shot gun, all chaos breaks loss under the saloon in that ole' Ghost Town. Cappy signals his Tunnel Birds who grab the remaining floor boards in their beaks and talons and with one mighty pull splinter them into kindling. Cookie, thinkin' like Kiddo
quotes a Dirty Harry line; " OK punk,Go ahead-Make my day!" The birds bust through the opening guns on the ready to come beak to beak with Black Bart himself, and a group of his dirty-birdie bandits.
"FREEZE!" Cappy yells as he points his gun at Bart, the others cover the remaining gang-members.
At Widow's Creek things are pretty busy. The bullets begin to fly from all directions as good birds, and gang-birds dive for cover. "The action is heatin' up!!!!!" BB is sitten tall on Sundancer's back over seein' the action at Widows Creek & the ghost town saloon. She is ready to ride to either spot to cover there if need be."This is better then cable TV." she yells as the action continues. Sky stands up and takes a fast shot at Badact and two of his cronies.
"Drop 'em, and wings up, or next shot won't miss," Sky fires so close it ruffles Badacts feathers.
"Ok, Ok, enough, it ain't worth it if Black Bart is gonna rob us of our share boyz" Badact drops his gun and throws his wings over his head.
Polly runs in and grabs his gun, as SweetPepper scoops up the other two guns from his friends standin' wings above their ratty heads. Kiddo takes careful aim at one of the other robbers, nicking his wing feathers, makin' him drop his weapon as he grabs his sore wing and begins to hoot and holler jumpin around like a rabbit. The other villains yell out " HOLD YA FIRE!" they come out from hiding places, wings up.
Mikey D calls out to his friends," grab some rope, lets tie these varmints up, we're headin' to town to make a delivery to Bart! " The team quickly secure the ropes and have the bandits hog-tied and loaded on the wagon beds, under the watchful eye of the gun-birds. They move to their teams like lightening and at a fast trot make dust as they move to the aid of their friends in the Ghost Town. BB clicks to Sundancer and moves off at a gallop, making a direct run for the action in town.
The Tunnel Birds have gotten themselves into a fix. They'd forgotten about the back door to the saloon. As they burst in and thought they had Bart covered they too were under cover; the cover of six gun barrels. " I think we got us a BIG PROBLEM!" Pearl whispers to Cappy.
see ya tomorrow,

  Hi Polly
Mom thought it was an interesting but unusual movie, and she loved the ending!
Mom has been a bit dizzy and nauseous since last night, so when she left the center today she went to the store and got some ginger ale to help her settle the stomach. Hope that takes care of the dizziness too. Of course, she also bought a new cucumber, pepper, yam, and berries for us while she was there.
When she got to the center today she found out she was doing (what else?) the RVS room. But when Bree saw her, she suggested that mom just sit in there and feed bats. Mom fed all 7 of them and cleaned their cages, but it took over 2 hours. While she was working, one of the staff came in and told her not to clean the big cages, just to finish the bats and leave. Mom was happy to oblige. She thought she'd get some yard things done today, but it was raining when she left the supermarket, so yard work is probably out of the question.
I hope you are having a beautiful spring day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Polly & Zippy
SHHHHHHHH!, Mikey D here at Widow's Creek. The place looks abandoned, not a bird in sight. Suddenly, outta the brush Black Bart's mite-infected side-kicks appear, guns poised at the ready. Mikey D takes a deep breath, and steps down from the lazy-board, and nods to the other drivers to follow suit. Cautiously, every nerve on the ready, the BC team moves to join the trail Boss.
"Far enough, now back off from them there wagons" a surly lookin' Raven orders, his six-shooter aimed at Mikey D. " fella's you take a gander and make sure them wagons have the treasure Bart wants."
Cappy and the tunnel birds have broken through the dirt and have slowly pried on the saloon floor until the boards are loose. Cappy is on high alert waiting for the signal. The tunnel birds are all ready to make their move and just wait in silence until Cappy hears the signal to burst through the floor and save Jesse.
"Wow, we tunnel birds did quick work." Pearl whispers to Silver waiting in the darkness," All the cowbirdies are eggcited and scared but more than prepared to do their assigned duties to carry out the rescue of Jesse as soon as the Trail Boss gives the order. They listen for the sound of Sky's double-barrel shot gun. Cookie shakes dust and dirt from his feathers after digging and stands waiting in silence. Dixie and Kallie along with Peepers and Celine all worked hard to move that dirt out from the tunnel they were building to connect to the saloon.They can't wait to save Jesse from Black Bart's clutches.
Mikey D, looks at the gang of thieves, then at the wagons. " Ok, you got everything ya wanted, now let my friends walk outta here peaceful-like"
"NO, Bart ordered us to take ya all hostage and bring you all back to town. You, come with me" he points at Pookie, one of the drivers, we're gonna go check out the loot. If there's any funny-business he's gonna get it. Hear me?" he growls angrily. Mikey D shakes his head, and waits not sayin' a word. He over-hears one of the bandits call the surly Raven, "Badact".
"WAIT! Badact ya sure you really wanta hand over all this treasure to Black Bart? You all kno' he ain't gonna share it with ya!" this gets the bandit-birds grumblin' among themselves. The plan is working. If they can convince these scoundrels that Black Bart is goin' to take everything they just might get them to turn against their leader.
Badact grabs Pookie by the shirt-collar and marches him to the sixth wagon, stoppin' to think for a moment, he then reaches his wing out to pull open the back of the canopy. He stops dead in his tracks as Kiddo jumps up, his gun leveled at Badact's head. The action gives everyone of the BC team time to dive for cover. Kiddo shoots over Badacts head, startling him, " feelin' lucky?" Kiddo yells angrily. Sky jumps out of his wagon bed, shooting his gun into the air, the double barrel echoing clear to the Ghost Town, signaling the Tunnel Birds into action. All chaos breaks loss

We had a gorgeos Sunday. Dad invited his friend Geno to lunch and we shared lemon cookies.
I don't normally like people other than Dad, but Geno is really great. He's my new buddy.

Later Geno and Dad went to see "THE SOUND OF MUSIC" at the Theater. Sadly the place is not 'bird-safe' so I had to stay home. I do love when we see "The Sound of Music" at home, so I can sing along.

  Hi Plly wolly !
Happy Monday ! I guess . . . we have rain all day today - and much cooler temperatures all week, only in the 50's. I guess if mother nature is going to tease us, let it be on a weekend ! On top of all that, it's mom's busiest week of the school year. Her drama club has it's production on Saturday night so they have rehearsals every afternoon ;( That means extra cage time for me - sigh. But at least with her show early this year, I can be in the Derby ! ! ! Silver lining behind every dark cloud !

Of course, testing continues here - this week is the math - right up aunt Karen's alley !

I hope you have a better day - love Cookie

  HELLO FROM LITTLE LUCY
Hi Polly,
If Mommy got me a new cage, I wouldn't need any adjusting either. She says that I don't need a new cage considering I'm rarely in it. I sleep in my carrier which sits on top on my cage, and I like it better. During the day, I'm always out and usually on Mommy. My old one is still like brand new! The only time I'm in it is when I get a time out, and it's loaded with toys. BUT IF I had a NEW cage, I just might go in it once in a while. It's the thought that counts!

Mommy says that it’s been too long since she blogged for me. Mommy is birdie-sitting again this weekend. Ususally the birds Mommy watches come to our house, but these birdies get to stay home in their own cages because they live only a mile and a half away. Mommy always sits for these birdies when their parronts go away. There’s a very old yellow headed Amazon, an African cape parrot and two lovies. There used to be three, but the mama lovebird, the oldest, died about a month ago. She had cancer. So sad.

Mommy took me for a car ride the other day when she went to the post office. She usually puts me in my carrier and she straps me into the rear seat, but since this was a very short trip, she let me ride on her shoulder. I love that. I kissed her and preened her hair all the way there and back. I hope your weekend is fun.
Lots of Love and Hugs from Your Friend, Little Miss Lucy♥

  Hi Polly & Zippy
Howdy, Mikey D here, at the camp readying to head into Widow's Creek. Cappy the tunnel-bird champ and his crew are already heading towards the Ghost Town, digging their tunnel quickly under Black Bart's beak, and moving in to place to rescue Jesse from their felonious grasps.
Ms BB rides back quietly into camp, unseen by the busy birds, it isn't until she speaks they realize she is there, " the tunnel birds are gettin' near the saloon! I seen a big pile of dirt outside of camp. Black Bart still has not shown himself. Some of his gang are still at Widows Creek waiting for the surprise you have planned for them. The group have got the horses away unnoticed and should have them here in the remuda any minute."
"It's time everyone!" Mikey D says loudly enough to be heard by all, "OK drivers, carporals act real casual-like, and don't let them know anythings up! Gun-birds, stay safe, wait for the signal, " Where's that feather-plucked rat?" before you come out shootin' and may God be with us!"
"The horses are stashed safely among the herd of cattle and mules, " Peppino reports to the others.
"Everybirdie knows the part they must play to successfully rescue Jesse and keep us and our cargo safe. Black Bart will regret messing with us again." Silver exclaims, as he and Pepper check their weapons.Pookie says "I'm all ready lets start heading out. I've got my rifle along with a night vision scope attached. I never leave home without it." he climbs up into the wagon. Peepers,Celine and the rest of the Dixie flock are all eager to help dig and be tunnel birds!They all grab a shovel to show Mikey D just how strong and fast they can be! Cappy directs the work, as dirt flies quickly out of the tunnel. Kaji takes a quick look of the work and reports back to the others that the tunnel is nearly finished.
"Let's move'em out!" Mikey D calls as he snaps the reins of his team and pulls them out onto the rough, rutted road. Kiddo spins around and draws his gun to show he is ready for Black Bart before jumping up onto the back of one of the empty wagons, joining the others hidden away in the beds of the Schooners. They move along at a slow walk, no birdie eager for what is to come. In the distance Mikey D spies Widow's Creek and can just make out a small figure of a bird watchin' them.
The Tunnel completed, Cappy waits for a few minutes to regroup his team before them head inside to make their way towards the saloon. They check their guns, and follow into the darkness. They wait to hear the signal shot from Sky at the Widow Creek. Then they will bust through the final inches of dirt and bust into the back of the saloon to save Jesse. Falco and Chyna take a deep breath as they wait. Very bird's nerves are on edge, ready to swing into action......
Mikey D holds up his wing, as they pull carefully into the opening at Widow's Creek..
see ya tomorrow, MIKEY D

Dad and a friend watched Robert Redford's film of "A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT" (1992) last night. Beautiful scenery, but all about fish [not birds] so I ignored most of it.

--
Another nice day here, but Dad says he'll be in the Movie Theater a long time today seeing
"THE SOUND OF MUSIC" (Best Picture, 1965) .

  Hi Polly & Zippy
WELL HOWDYYYY!, Mikey D finally back online. WOW, no net was sure tough. Didn't know how we'd make it much longer. Thankfully we can just pick on up were we left off. We gathered together to plan our rescue of Jesse and a greetin' for Black Bart he'd not soon forget. Lizzie had rustled up a great meal, but nobirdie seem too hungry with so much about to take place. With the wagons unloaded, and Apache, Bon Bon. Angel and Willie standin' guard we set about makin' plans on how to carry out our mission.
" I have scouted out Widow's Creek." Ms BB explained, " There is 1 road through the creek with lots of cover to hide in. That's bad for us cause Black Bart has his gang hid in it. I seen the movements they made back and forth to their horses. " BB paused for emphases "The cover is good for us cause we can sneak up & get the drop on them. Maybe a few birds can sneak in & lead their horses away.?"
"Now, that sounds like a workable idea, " Zippy says eager to get goin' and save Jesse. "I volunteer to go!"
"I will too" Parker adds. " Me too!" Flitzer offers.
"OK, you be careful. Take their horses back around the creek, and into our remuda for safe keepin. But be careful." Mikey D says, patting them each on the shoulder. He knows he's picked the best birds to do that job. Angel-tiel, Pepper and Peppino join the group as they ride out of camp to carry out their mission. Angel & Pepper are happy to help the birdies execute the "surprise" for Black Bart!
"We need to get these wagons hitched and ready." Sky adds looking at Mikey D for direction. "I'll be honored to be in the wagon as I'm a good shot." Pookie steps forward eager to do his share to help. Cookie and Spot get their guns ready, they know the team will out smart that rotten Black Bart and his gang.
"We're ready to do whatever part we need to help rescue Jesse and keep everybirdie, cargo, etc. safe." Pearl and Silver check their weapons and smiling, join the volunteers climbing into the now empty wagons.
Cappy steps up to help Mikey D and Sky lead the attack. "I'm very proficient with a sling shot lol. " he begins to pick out shooters to be in his wagon. Kiddo re-loads and speaks up "I have my six shooter loaded and ready to go!" he hops into the wagon bed ready to fight. Cappy asks "has anybirdie thought of digging a tunnel into the town? ... Cappy explains he is very adept at digging escape tunnels .
"NOW, that's a plan" Mikey D says grinning widely, We need tunnel birds quick! Any volunteers? Wings go up all over camp. "Cappy, you take all the tunnel-birds you need and head into town. Tunnel your way carefully towards the saloon. "Jesse!, we'll be there soon!"
see ya tomorrow, MIKEY D

  Hi Polly
Northern magnolias are in bloom here, maybe that's what mom saw. Most of the fruit trees have little blossoms.
Today mom has a class in handling RVS animals, then she is going to the bird warehouse to pick up a few things.
This afternoon she is hoping to get outside, it's supposed to go to 79! It will be a great day to finish the cleanup in the yard and gardens, and catch a few rays while doing it. Tonight mom, Aunt Gin, and her niece Jessica will be here for pizza and a movie. They are renting Birdman. It seems some folks love it and others don't, so I guess it got them all curious.
I hope you are having a great day and getting some sun, spring, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  hooray for weekends with lots of sunshine !
It's going to be near 70 today ! ! Doesn't get much better :) First cookout of the season on the agenda :) With corn ! Wanna come ? Daddy's tooth is finally fixed and he wants to eat "real" food !

While me and daddy were waiting for mom to come home yesterday I started hollering - daddy gave me scritches, he came to play with me, he gave me a strawberry treat . . . nothing helped. FINALLY, he pulled out my bathtub and I jumped right in ! It would not have taken mom so long to figure out what I wanted !
Jeeeeesh !

Well, state English Language Arts testing is done - next week is the math - does MI do any of them ? More a test of endurance than academics !

I hope you have a terrific day ! love Cookie

  Hi Polly and Zippy
Mikey D here after a day's absence. I must say Mr Sky ( Sky Flock) looks rather handsome with his beak and nails all trim and polished. Then to make it worse he got a huge wooden toy from Chuey's Chewable Bird Toy Creations. Geesh, I had to sit here and tend mules all day in the hot sun whilst I fretted some over how we'd get Jesse back from Black Bart. As I was sittin' astride the lazy-board on the wagon, driving these tired, sweaty mules Ms BB came ridin into our midst.


"I had a short meeting with The Bird yesterday up in the hills. He/she has had a hard time getting away from Black Bart. The Bird said "Black Bart & his gang have Jesse in their camp in the ghost town. They are in the saloon." I hope this intel helps. I am going to scout the ghost town for ways to get in without being seen" with this message she wheeled her steed and galloped off into the distance before I had a chance to ask any questions. The whole message has me troubled now. We have until sundown to figure out a way to rescue Jesse, before we have to deal with Black Bart. There ain't no way, no how we're gonna hand over our wagon train to the likes of that feathered rascal.
Lizzie is thoroughly disgusted." I shoulda toasted Black Bart last time," she thinks. "Now he has Jesse. I know I should just pay attention to my cooking but I sure do have a mind to torch that dastardly demon. " she exhales a puff of smoke and fire in her anger. Kaji looks at her, and grins. Black Bart just might have bitten off more then he can handle this time.
Mikey D calls a break, pulling off into a nice cool grove of cottonwood trees that grow by a shallow river bank. The perfect place for a quick, make-shift camp and rest. Everyone needs a break and somethin' good in their bellies, then they will figure out how to rescue Jesse from that bad varmint Bart. BB was off scouting the Ghost Town, and no doubt would be back soon with the intel they needed to make a quick, safe mission of it. Even the smell of roasting beef and bread wasn't enough to stop that knot of worry in Mikey D's stomach.




Sky and Gus arrive at the camp, and tend their team. Washing up in the river they hurry to find Mikey D. " We've been thinkin' boss, we might have a plan that just might work. You see, Black Bart isn't that bright, just mean and ornery so we were thinkin' that if we were to unload the wagons and deliver them to him at the Widow's Creek. Instead of freight we have gun-birds stowed away inside the wagon beds and when he comes to check them out, we gett'um good. He won't even suspect a thing. We act all afraid and all when we pull into the rendezvous place. We can teach that rat bird a lesson he'll never forget.
Mikey D listens carefully and smiles. It might just work, if everybirdie can play along with the plan. But "Is there enough birds willing to take on Black Bart?" he asks out loud hopeful that they can win this battle.
see ya tomorrow, Mikey D

  Hi Polly
I think mom is right to be more concerned with Pepe LePew than with the birds. And the hawk, well everything has to eat.
We are starting to get flowers in bloom here, it's so exciting! Many daffodils have already opened up, the forsythia is in bloom, there are hyacinths in the yard in all different colors, buds on the wiegalia, the lilac is sprouting leaves, it's looking a lot like spring here!
This morning mom had a tour with K kids about animals. They were another Montessori group and were well prepared for their tour. They spent about half the time in Bird Hall, comparing beaks and feet. Mom loved that.
When she got home, her cell phone had lost the charge, so she tucked it into her purse to take to Radio Shack after she dropped off the dogs. They are presently at the groomer having a spa day, and the guy said it would be longer today, so they must be really busy there.
At Radio Shack, the guy told mom her battery was really dead, and put it on a charger. He then checked the cord which mom had remembered to pack, and found out the cord itself is defective. She has to call the manufacturer for a replacement. He was cute, offered to leave her phone on their charger for a couple of hours while she shopped, but mom politely declined and bought another cord to bring home with her. It would be easy to charge it this afternoon there, but what about tomorrow? So, she got the new cord, which he told her she could return in 30 days for a refund! Mom told him she's probably going to keep it as a spare, though.
So, we're finally able to blog while the phone is charging and the dogs are away. I hope you are having a pleasant day and getting some spring weather, lots of cuddles, and of course, your daily scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Good morning Polly !
Happy Humpday ! And a hurrah for Jenny Lynn being reinstated even if we do have to wait a month !

We had a bit of a cool down and it's only supposed to be high 50's the next week or so :( That means no open windows to yell at the squirrels out back ! I'll have to yell at mom and dad instead :)

After being gone all day yesterday, the parronts had the nerve to head out last night again - mom had to go get the tickets for her drama club production printed. She also got some candy for her class . . . yeppers, during standardized state testing, she uses bribery ! ! Whatever works !

I'm sorry aunt Karen has been busy too - leave the door unlocked and I'll head out as soon as daddy leaves ! I'll bring my deck of cards ! We'll have a shred fest !

Have a happy and fun-filled day ! love Cookie

  Hi Polly
I am having a pretty good day. Although Mom spent a half hour on the phone with her friend Judy finishing up the editing of her paper this morning, I got time both before and after. However then she left for the gym, and when she came home all sweaty....eeww! At least I guess that is why I didn't want to get on her shoulder and climb into my carrier for a sunbath. So she took her shower, and then we did walkabout the house. That was all it took for me to climb right in there. And BTW I got a sunbath yesterday after all. It wasn't until 3:15, but it was still nice out. And today the weather was just perfect with a nice breeze.

Unfortunately when Mom brought me in to do my blogs, I just had to get into that desk drawer again. So I had to settle for telling her what to say, and now I am in my room playing. I am being quiet though, so Mom knows I am enjoying the new toy I got from Aunt Paula in the raffle she held for Marley's Menagerie. It has 2 bells on it! Does it get any better than that???

Check out the Derby Hat Contest details on either the Calendar Page or the Milonga Page. Entries begin today, and you have until 4/23 to get your Hat Pic entered. Voting will begin the next day, so get ready everybirdy! The Derby is coming on May 9th, but the fun starts now!

  Hello Polly~
I hope you are enjoying today! I know you hate that collar but I saw a picture on Facebook of two cockatoo's that were nearly totally naked! They looked so sad. I know they are loved and still having happy times but it must get cold. I hope the rescue that has them will make them a t-shirt to wear.
I would hate for you to end up like that. We would still love you no matter what! Perfection is not important to us but I think you will be so much more comfortable with feathers on!!
Have a fabulous day sweetie!

  Hi Polly wolly doodle all day !
Happy Tuesday ! We have rain coming in today after the absolutely perfect day yesterday - low 60's and sunshine coming out your ears ! When mom came home she opened all the windows and it felt so good ! Only problem was it blew my cards off the table !

The final marking period began yesterday as well, and that means summertime is coming ! Of course mom and the kids still have to get through the state testing this week and next - UGH ! Even our forsythia are ready to pop into yellow ! !

Have a great day - and don't forget to let i5 know we want JennyLynn and flock back ! love Cookie

I hope you had a great day! Yes mom still has the cold. She didn't work last night and is off again tonight so she is taking medicine and getting some sleep. I like your idea about the tape recorder!hehehehehe
It was boring around here again since mom doesn't have the energy to do much. We got some laundry done and the carpets cleaned and then mom got pizza so we didn't have to clean the kitchen again. It was yummy!! I had 2 pieces of crust.
Enjoy your evening!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  HELLO FROM LITTLE LUCY
Hi Polly,
I understand how it feels to be ignored...and I really don't like that! Mommy was puting a new cage in order with all the toys and stuff today and I was so excited...I thought it was for me, BUT, it turned out it was for Sammy, one of our cockatiels, and her bonded buddy, Pepin, our little Fischer's lovebird. Needless to say, I was quite disappointed!
Love from Little Miss Lucy♥
