  Hi Polly !
I love your super-hero costume ! We could fight crime together !

Happy Humpday ! It's pouring rain on us all day today and tomorrow - how very dreary ! Thank goodness my new lamp came yesterday - I love when the UPS guy comes to the door, I always yell HEY to him and he calls back !
I especially love when he brings something for me !

So I'll do some napping today while everyone is gone. Mom came home right after putting kids on the school buses yesterday with a headache and sore throat, thinking she was getting her first cold of the season. So daddy stopped for Chinese food on the way home so she wouldn't have to cook - and it worked ! Some wonton soup, a good night's sleep and she feels better this morning !

Hope all is well on your perch ! Have a great day - love to you, Cookie

Do a search on WHITE QUAKER. There is a breeder here in Florida that breeds the Whites, NOT albino.

Do YOU know what day it IS?..... It's Kiss a Camel Good Morning. Happy Hump Day.

  October BOTM POST number fifteen
Hi everybird, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. It is such a relief to be free from those creepy, crawly, ucky black Monster sized Spiders. I didn't wanta say anything but I think that some of them are the Giant Birdeater Spiders. "YUCK, is all I can say."
"Where are Sweetpepper, Apache and Pearl gone?" Kiddo asks in fear for his wife-bird and friends.
"Not again" Jesse says his yellow face turning a ghostly white. "they have to be here, I just saw them a moment ago!" Jesse brings to run back and forth searching under every bush, behind every tree and asks everybirdie, but he is unable to find his missing friends. Sadly he returns to where Sky is in deep conversation with Jake and Spot.
" We have to get to the Castle. We can't delay. Our friends are gone, and we have to save them." Sky's voice hesitates for a moment, before finishing his sentence, " before it's too late"
"Everybirdie" Jesse calls out loudly, " we are going to follow a path I found searching for Sweetpepper and the others. It looks well traveled, it must lead to the Castle. We have to hurry, it's getting late, the sun will be setting soon."
Jesse leads out, following the path, watching carefully for anything "odd" he might find along it. Everything is fine, and he begins to relax, the birdies are making greyt time, they will be safely at the Castle soon. Then he can return with help to find their missing friends.
"JESSE?" Spot flies up to walk with him, have you noticed anything weird?
"Nope, everything looks fine. WHY?" Jesse asks an edge of concern to his voice.
"No reason, well, maybe it might be odd, maybe not but have you noticed that every tree is planted beside another one that is the same?"
Jesse looks at the trees beside the path, and certainly it is true, every tree has a perfect match to it. He continues to watch as he walks quickly along. Every rock and every bush also has a double.
"Yeah, it sure is odd Spot." Jesse turns his head to speak to Spot and let's out a terrified scream, " SPOT? SPOT?" he yells in terror, as his eyes fall upon not one but two Spots. Jesse screams again, and a perfect echo follows, causing him to snap his head to the right to come beak to beak with "HIMSELF! AHHHHHHHHHHH!"
"SKY, JAKE, come quickly!" the two Jesse's scream in echo of one another. Jesse tries to get away from himself, but his double follows every move he makes. he sees Sky and Jake coming his direction, and stops. There are two of each of them, in fact everywhere Jesse looks there are two of everybirdie. The others realize that they too have a perfect double and fear spreads like fire among the group.
"Falco? BooBoo?" Hulk asks then backs away unsure of which one is the real Falco and the real BooBoo.

  Hi Polly
Yes, Mom would like to borrow the Marie Hall if your mom has it on kindle. No hurry, since she has a ton of stuff on there, plus library books. Whenever your mom has a chance. Do you need Mom's kindle address again?

Well, Mom got a call from her friend who is in the Master's program at CSUN about editing her paper that is due soon. Mom being the grammar queen, she loves helping out. And I love it, because it means she stayed home from zumba. As soon as they are done, Mom and I will share lunch and then go out for my sunbath. Then the rest of the day is mine!!

I wonder what is for dinner tonight? I sure did enjoy the thigh bone I got from last night's feast. Mom loved it, but I think she enjoyed the Hawaiian Sweet roll the most. 8 weeks without bread is a longggg time!

It's Popeye.
Mom and dad can work any hours and days they want.
Mom and dad worked at the police dept. yesterday. Dad says he must be real scary. When he works, nothing big ever happens. All the bad guys must be afraid of dad and they stay home. Mom is slowly getting caught up with the Field Interview Cards. Only problem is that the officers keep writing them. Dad took a change of cloths with him and changed in the men's locker room. He said it was tiny. When mom was finished for the day they went to Blake's Place, a great BBQ restaurant. They had a "Buy One Get One Free" coupon. It must have been good cuz there were no leftovers.
Dad's going to starting working on the sprinklers at the front of the house today. He said that the side of the house by the kitchen should be good to go. Wonder where it's going? Mom's thinking about working at the police station again today. Dad has to take his uniform to the cleaners today. He says it smells. We wish he'd bring it into our room. We've never smelled a donut shop.
Today will be partly cloudy with a high of 84 and a low of 60.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Dear polly, you have such a sweet momma-Jen Lynn
Today is happy ToosDay, but every day of the week should be named for a different parrot species, and Sunday should be Citron Cockatoo day, because of their Angelic appearance and sweet quiet nature! Our weather is less than good, it is 37 degrees, and will warm to the low 60's, but why does it have to be so overcast all the time, it makes Jen feel like robbing a bank and biting the bank managers, LOL, she always donates the cash to parrot rescues and no-kill shelters, it is one of our passions! Have a great day dearest friends, and give my best love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

Love forever and a day from, Jenny & my loving family

  October BOTM POST number fourteen
Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. What a sticky, icky mess we have found ourselves in. Giant Spiders everywhere, and no where to run. Then all of a sudden I found a clearing. I was eggcited to see our way of escape, that is until the air is shattered by the terrified scream of Dixie.
Dixie is very upset and frightened about what the spiders would do to Little Ange. He runs in circles around the tree where she is hanging from their thick webs! Dixie screams for someone to come to his aid," Please help me reach my wife bird and cut her loose" He tries but is too small to reach her at this point! He asks permission to get on top of Poppa Sky's head so he can have a better reach of her and then pulling off a thick branch from the Mulberry tree to reach LA with, he stands carefully on Poppa Sky's head trying to balance with his twisted toes,all the while reaching up with the long branch to his Little Angel! Little Angel reaches down breaking through the webbing she is caught in and grabs the branch that Dixie is holding out to her, suddenly losing her balance she falls from the webbing and tumbles down onto Dixie, as both birds fall sliding down Poppa Sky's red feathered back!
Dixie kisses his Little Angel. "Oh Dixie you saved my life. I'm sure those black Monster Spiders were going to eat me for dinner." Little Angel sniffs, wiping a tear from her eye. Sky checks his little fister over and seeing she and Dixie are ok, he stands tall as he can, and looks intently around to find a way to escape from this mess. It is while he is busy searching that Jenny-Lynn arrives ta his side. "SKY, I have a plan." she whispers into Sky's ear. HE nods his red head several times as he listens to her plan. After she finishes he clears his voice to get everybirds attention.
"Jenny-Lynn has a plan. She thinks if we were to form a long line and use sticks to break the webs, we can easily bust free of the spider's trap and get away from here. BonBon has a lighter." He frowns, thinking to himself, she ought not to have it in the first place, taking note to lecture his daughter later. " We can use it to burn the webs off the trees and bushes, our sticks can tear them down from the path ahead of us." Seeing no other plan, everybirdie lines up, wing to wing forming a greyt line of feathers, and slowly they work their way forward, removing webs as they go. It seems a very long time before they reach the end of the spiders home, and bid them a quick good-bye. The Spiders glare angry eyes at the retreating birds. "Just wait, they think they are free from troubles...." The Spiders hiss and laugh as they return to their damaged webs. " they'll wish they were here again!"
Jesse stops for a moment to get his bearings. He sits on a tree that had fallen to the ground. HE asks SKY to find Apache so he can use the binoculars. Sky searches but returns with Kiddo in a panic, " Apache, Sweetpepper and Pearl are gone!"

  Hi Polly
It's Popeye.
Yes, that's dad standing by the police car. Mom and dad both are volunteers with the police dept. Mom works in the Records Div. and dad works the streets.
Yesterday started off on a sad note. Yup, paying bills. That sat the mood for the rest of the day. Dad changed more sprinkler heads and mom watched TV. After dad was finished with the sprinklers on the north side of the house he came in and watched TV with mom. Hey, at least they were home with us. Mom finally noticed the TV shelf that dad built. She said it looked great and matched the entertainment center perfectly. Yaaaay Dad!
Today will be partly cloudy with a high of 81 and a low of 61 and mom and dad will be working at the police dept.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Monday, Monday, Monday . . .
t's already here again ! And jeepers is it cold ! Mom spent a good part of the day dragging in plants since we were having our first freeze warning last night - and we sure did ! brrrrrrr . . . Now I don't have much to watch out the back during the day :(

Now it's back to school for mom, back to work for dad and back to my cage for me ! I finally scored a new shred and destroy toy from Palooza to play with. Of course I have to find a good place to do that first ! It's a small box (3x3x1) with confetti coming out the sides and a leather strip with wood pieces tied to the top . . . and guess what's inside ? A NUT ! !

Is mom able to get to school with the taxi service she is running lately ? Don't worry about the early goodnightbird time - with it getting so dark these days, I'm getting my self ready and squawking for my treat at about 7:00 . . .
Have a great day ! Love to all - Cookie

Hi everybirdie Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. I want to take a moment to thank you all for your continuous daily votes, and awesome blogs. I am trying to use them in my story line so keep them comin.' IF anybirdie still needs a Halloween picture please let me know your choice of costume and I will see what I can do to help you out.
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" Sky screams shrilly and he a Jake back up quickly from the mound of parted grass. "What was that thing???"
"I have no idea but I'm outta here" Jake heads back to rejoin BB and the others, with Sky following on his heels.
Sky shivers, and ducks behind BB. Peaking out to stare towards the grass with dilated eyes. "EEEEEKuck." Sky did not get the words out before birdies began to scream and jump as fast as they could to join Jake and Sky behind BB and BonBon who had come to see what was wrong with her Poppa Sky.
"S-P-I-D-E-R-S!" from every direction big, ucky, black, beady eyed spiders crawl, hang and appear out of every tree, bush and from behind every blade of grass. The girl birds huddle close together as the spiders spin their webs angrily from every solid object. Sky nervously sneaks a peak again from behind BB, closing his eyes. He hates spiders, well no, Sky is afraid of them, and these are BIG, black ucky ones with a quadrillion legs. He shutters, then takes a brave breath of air.
"BOYS, we must protect the ladies" Sky announces not too confidently.
"Yeah, that's right" Cookie says, hanging tightly onto BB's leg once more. " we'll protect you girls"
"Oh really, they're just Spiders" BooBoo says snatching one in her beak and swallowing it whole, "YUMMMMMIE"
The others look at BooBoo and make faces, "how disgusting BooBoo, eating it without BBQing it first" BonBon chirps up. " AHHHHHHH, ones chasing me" she says taking flight. She lands on her Poppa Sky's head. "I'll sit up here and keep watch on them for you" she grins down at her red feathered Poppa.
The spiders continue to emerge, spinning thick webs everywhere. Their black eyes glaring like fiery flames of anger. The birds huddle closely as the Spiders move closer and closer. Suddenly Jesse sees what looks like an opening, and yells, " Follow me" he runs as fast as his talons will carry him between two Mulberry bushes with the others closely upon his heels. The duck low to avoid the heavy webs hanging from the old dark trees, and weave to the left and right around the huge black spiders who appear to block their path of escape. Jesse rushes forward, jumping over an old fallen log, and lands inches from a monstrous Spider, who growls and snaps his feet at the pasting birdies.
"EEEEEEEEEEEE" the scream brings the fleeing birds to a halt, "LITTLE ANGEL, the Spiders grabbed her into their web, HELP HER!!!!!

  Hi Polly
Mom immediately looked in to the data bases of both of her libraries for Marie Hall with no luck. She will check the kindle store too when we are done blogging.

It is very nice here today. They were calling for 77, but I don't think it got quite that warm. Our thermometer says 72, and it's 1PM now. I did get out for my sunbath though, and it was very nice in the sunshine. Got two nutriberries as well, which is always good.

And so now I sit on Mom's knee dictating my blogs. She has the door shut, since Dad is home. And besides I have a made a break from my room twice today for the bathroom. I love hanging out on top of the medicine cabinets in there. And besides it annoys Mom, which is always fun.

We had mac and cheese for lunch today. Mom added some Cajun spice, cottage cheese (for protein) and a bit of Romano cheese to kick it up a notch. It must have worked, because she really liked it and I ate like a little pig. Good thing she gets to eat meat starting tomorrow, because this morning when she woke me up and I was doing my morning stretch, she referred to my legs as drumsticks! Yikes!

Dad is finished with the TV shelf and will bring it into the house today. It took him all week to build and finish it but he's happy with it. Mom spent the day marking TV shows to record on the two DVRs. Now she's complaining that there's no more room on them. Dad had a brilliant idea. Stop recording stuff! We don't think that mom listened.

  Hey Polly !
It's Sunday - and it's getting chilly and windy here. Dad got up during the night to close windows :( So when mom got up (after sleeping in till almost 6:00 !), instead of getting right on line with her coffee like she usually does, she went out to start cleaning up the back deck. There's a freeze warning for tonight so all the plants have to be cleaned off (bugs) and dragged in before the end of the day . . . I think you guys have our weather first !

Mom also has a little school work to get done which I'm hoping she'll let me assist with ! Math tests and compositions . . . of course that's after she meets one of her 8th grade buddies at the library. Logan is the king of procrastination and has a book report due tomorrow ! Mom's been working with him on it since the third week of school . . .

How's dad doing ? I bet mom is getting more done around the house now that she can use the electricity while he's at work. I just hope that doesn't mean too little Polly time ! Have a great Sunday ! love Cookie

  Hi Polly
Oatie tries to figure how to give her friend a hug. Makana and I are sorta getting along. She's really bossy though and so I fly over to mom for loves.
Oh I was at the party. I danced with about everybirdie! I was so tired and my feet hurt. I could hardly perch. So glad Makana insisted we all sleep at the castle. Then I hit the spa. That was divine! I was totally relaxed when I got home. Mom was nice enough to lock my door when she let Pimer out today. I didn't need his attention. hahaha
So very sorry you gotta wear your collar again. Mom's been trying to decide if she wants to put one on me. I sure hope she doesn't!! She does want to wait and see if Makana and I get along enough to preen each other, even if we don't share a cage or anything. We'll just have to wait and see.
hope your day was as beautiful as ours was. We hope to have this nice weather for a couple more days at least. That'll give mom time to harvest some more tomatoes that the neighbors have grown. They have sooooo many and different kinds too. We like a little tomato so we get the cherry ones sometimes. Mom can't have them on her salad without us trying to grab em. hahaha
Thanks so much for checking on me. I thought I saw you being led around the floor too. I better head back to the perch. See ya soon I hope.

Hello friends, Jesse here with our Saturday BOTM Adventure Post. As we turned for a final look at BC Lake, the water is once more calm, glass-like and no sign of the past violent storm remains. Even the row-boats have disappeared. "WHAT! The row-boats, their gone!" Kacey exclaims loudly as she stares in disbelief. For indeed the boats had vanished into thin air.
BB looks at Sky and Jesse, then back at the Lake, "I hope we can find the BC Castle. It is funny that it has disappeared on us. I know it is a magical place but why would it vanish on the birds who love it sooooo much???" Then looking down towards the ground she says with a sigh, "Can somebirde please remove Cookie from around my legs? Its hard to waddle this way."
" SURE HOPE WE FIND OUR WAY BACK TO THE CASTLE THEN FIND OUR FRIENDS. THIS IS ONE SCAREY TRIP.' Sweetpepper tells Kiddo with worry in her voice. Kiddo takes her wing in his, and holds her tightly. "We'll get out of here, don't you worry Sweetpepper."
Spot comes to where Sky, BB and Jesse are standing, trying to decide what to do next. Jake walks towards the group, but suddenly stops dead in his tracks. "What was that?" he asks pointing to where he had thought he saw something peaking out of the grass at him. Seeing nothing he joins the others.
Bonbon looks and sees that her picture with Parker is in the photo album Hesse has on his gallery. turning to spot and Parker she says, "Jesse put me and Parker in the profile!Hehee!!! I can't wait to show Snowflake........ Oh no! I forgot that she disappeared!" BonBon starts to cry loudly because she misses her friend!
Spot hugs her and says, "don't worry BonBon. We'll find her and all the others too!"(He sounds more confidant than he feels, but he won't let BonBon see that!)
"Hey, Panther! I have an idea! We're tiels, and fly well! let's go up as high as we can and look for them!"
"Good idea, Spot," says Panther.
Jesse says, "you guys be careful! And keep up in sight range, OK?"
"OK, let's go Panther!" Spot lifts into the air
They fly straight up and fly in a big circle looking for their friends. Finally, they land and report to Jesse. "We didn't see them, we also didn't see the castle in any direction! I think we're lost!"
Worry lines form on Jesse's handsome face again, and he says, "it must be a trick of some kind by the BC ghosts! The Castle has to be there. It's always easy to find from the Lake."
Jake and Sky stand close, talking. "I am certain I saw tiny black eyes staring at me from over there, then they disappeared." Sky looks in the direction Jake indicated. Seeing nothing he frowns. " We better go check it out, just to be sure." The two boys inch closer to where the eyes had been. Parting the grass carefully using a stick Sky found on the ground they lean over for a better looks and suddenly the air is split in two by their terrified screams........

  Hi Polly
Right now Mom is reading a free book on her kindle, but she doesn't think she will finish it. The grammatical errors are driving her nuts, and the story isn't all that great.

We have one of those suction shower perches, but I am terrified of it. I don't like sharing the shower with Mom at all, but I do like for her to spritz me.

I am having a pretty nice day. It being Saturday, Mom and Dad went grocery shopping. However Mom spent an hour reading with me first (and of course got up early to give me breakfast). Now I am once again well supplied with sugar snap peas and bananas. Mom was very frustrated in the store, because they were giving out lots of samples without having a single one she can eat yet. Monday can't get here soon enough for her.

However Mom forgot to eat lunch, so we still need to do that. She has gotten really weird about eating since the surgery. You would think she would be hungry all the time, but she isn't. No wonder she hasn't gained back any of the weight, even with her one solid meal of rice and veggies (the one she hasn't eaten yet today).

I did get a nice sunbath, and we both enjoyed the mid 70s temps. The sun was out today, so there was actual sunshine. I know I still get the healthy rays when it is cloudy, but it just feels nicer when the sun is shining.

And so as I dictate from my mom's knee, I bid you all a wonderful weekend!

  Oatie and Ipo wake Makana just before midnight and tell her she has an appointment. She asks what kind of appointment could she have in the middle of the night? They just smile and tell her she must hurry. So she runs after them and stops when she sees Sophie and Pimer in the shuttle but Oatie and Ipo pulls her aboard and makes certain she's secured as it takes off. Her eyes get bigger and bigger as she watches the castle get closer. They land and as she steps out behind Sophie and Pimer she gets her first look at the red carpet unrolling before them and Oatie gives her a push. She steps on the carpet and walks between birds as she enters the castle. She sees Queen Angel sitting on her throne and an empty seat next to her. She curtsies to the Queen and finds herself lifted up and placed on the seat next to her. She feels a crown placed on her head and her frother and sisters honor her then move aside as the other birds greet and congratulate her on becoming BOTD! Queen Angel leans over and whispers, "You're supposed to tell them to start the party." "OH! LET THE PARTY START!" Angel hides her laughter as she sees the big smile on Makana's beak. Makana is so glad she was able to get some sleep so she could enjoy this party.
She stands up and everybird looks her way, "Um, I want to thank each and every one for this honor. Now we can party" With much laughter, everybird does just that.

Helloooooo, Jesse screams in fright as the row boat bounces wildly on the storm tossed lake. The waves reach high over the sides of the row-boats filling them with cold, icy water. The frightened birds yell for help, their voices lost in the crashes of thunder from above.
After what feels like an eternity, the small wooden row-boats bump roughly into the rocky shores of the BC Lake. With a deep sigh of relief everybirdie scrambles to escape from the angry waters, and wind, jumping over the edge quickly, and running for cover in the nearby brush that watches over the normally quiet Lake. Jesse crawls along the beach, counting heads, making certain everybirdie is safely ashore. With so many disappearing he doesn't plan to take any chances at all from here on. Sitting down beside SKY, BB and Jake Jesse rubs his chin as he thinks of the next thing he ought to do. HE frowns sadly, uncertainly etching his handsome face with worry lines.
"I'm not certain where we are?" Jesse says, sneaking a peak out from around the brush he and the others are hankered down behind.
"We aren't far from the Castle. In fact from every point of BC Lake we can see the Castle. We need to get our bearings." BB says with confidence.
"Ok, Jake and I will head up that small hill and get a better idea where we are." Sky says climbing to his feet, with Jake beside him. ' Be right back" he tells BB and Jesse as they head off up the hill.
"You any idea where we are?" Sky asks Jake as they climb the hillside.
"NOPE!" Jake says looking around slowly. " NEVER saw this place before"
Sky takes Apache's binoculars from his jacket pocket and scans the area. " I can't find the Castle. Actually I can't see anything I recognize."
Sky hands Jake the binoculars. HE looks along time, then " whistles softly. Nope, me either. I think if we head towards the west we will find the Castle, or at least something we will remember."
Sky and Jake climb back down to where they'd left Jesse and BB. After a moment of explanation, they decide that they better keep moving. BB agrees that the Castle should lay tot he West. Jesse once more moves down the brushes, stopping to explain the plan to each group of nervous adventurers. He stops where Falco and Boo Boo sit quietly looking rather scared. " I'll get you outta here, and we will find the others. I promise." Falco smiles softly.
"OKAY, everybirdie, let's keep moving. I am sure that if we keep heading WEST we will locate the Castle, or somewhere we will all recognize. We need to hurry, we have to find Sugar, Cori, Pepper, Gus, Snowflake and Cydney."
With much murmuring the tired, wet, scared birdies follow Jesse as he begins to walk towards the West. The group climbs a small hill, coming to rest at the top for a moment. As they reach the summit, the wind fades, the clouds part, and once more the sky shines blue, and golden with the warm sunshine.

  Hi Polly
OK, you just named off some of my mom's favorite authors! J.R. Ward is a bit different on her vampires, since they need vampire blood to survive and are opposed by "altered" and evil humans. Oh, and you have to be born a vampire....so different. And I found it interesting to see her development as a writer. The books definitely improve as you go through the series. And they need to be read in order.

Well, Mom is all jazzed and proud of herself today. She finally managed to finish a complete hour of zumba. And this after her trainer gave her a "heavy day" (heavier weights, fewer reps). Parrotsonally I am not so pleased at all. I liked her coming home early. And since she was all sweaty, she made me wait while she showered and washed her hair. I ask you, is that fair?

However after that we had a nice lunch, and then went outside for my sunbath. Now this put us outside at 1PM, which will give you an idea of how much things have cooled off here. In fact, there was very little sun, but it was still a nice 73 degrees. It's already dropping though, and Mom is wearing sweat pants for the first time in months.

So Mom gets to eat meat on Monday. Could that have anything to do with the fact that she dreamed about fried chicken last night? Since that is the dinner Dad has planned to pick up for her, I think we all know the answer to that question!

Oh, and check out the Calendar Page or the Milonga Page for details on the Milonga Costume contest! It starts immediately, and time is short what with BC being shut down for 6 days this month. So get your entries in right away!

  Hi Polly
The book Mom was reading was by J.R. Ward. She writes paranormal stuff. She has a series about vampires (but these vampires only drink each other's blood, not humans), and the other series is about a contest between angels and a demon for the earth. Mom was reading book three in that series. Does your mom like paranormal stuff?

Well, it has been a quiet day here, but a nice one. Mom is low on energy, but that's OK by me since it means she doesn't feel like going anywhere. Although I did not appreciate the nap she took after giving me my breakfast!

After the lazybones woke up, she came in to read with me till it was warm enough to go outside around noon. Mid 70s here today, so it made for a nice sunbath. For the first time in months though, Mom sat in the sun instead of the shade. Guess summer is really over.

After we came in and had lunch, Mom sat and read with me for a bit. And now I am once again on her knee dictating. No bites since Monday, even though I am definitely hormonal. I want to feed Mom and her fingers look sooooo attractive to me, but she won't let me have my way with them. Something she says is a no nono, but I don't get it. Must be a human thing.

  Polly wolly doodle !
It's a really wet pouring rain kind of day here ! Nice to sleep to, but that's about it ! Mom doesn't want to go to school in it - she has recess duty on Thursday and hates when the kids have to be in ! Dad is supposed to go into the city later to do a class - he's hoping it's over by then.

When mom gets home, she wants to clean my cage :( She just doesn't appreciate good art ! My new design concept is crumple up all the paper you can find and stuff it in your food and water bowls ! Clever huh ? You should try it ! Instant attention !

How's dad feeling ? I've noticed it's getting dark pretty early so I hope he's feeling better -

In the meantime, you have a great Thursday :) love Cookie

  Hi Polly
I am having a nice hump day with my mom. She did leave this morning to get her nails done, but she passed on the car wash afterwards because it is so cloudy out she is afraid it might drizzle. Fine by me since it got her home sooner. However it is not warm enough outside for a sunbath!! First time in months, but it is supposed to be back in the 70s (67 right now) by tomorrow. Maybe Mom will have to break down and wash Gloria herself!

Meanwhile I am on her knee dictating this blog. I have gotten very good about sitting quietly there, so I get rewarded with the extra mommy and me time. She spends from 4-6 at the gym with her trainer and zumba on Wednesdays, so I have to grab what I can. As soon as we are done blogging it is lunch time, one of my favorite parts of the day.

Hi everybirdie, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. " SHHHHHH, we don't wanta wake up those crazy trees again."
"Turn three times and head to the East" Jenny-Lynn reads the sign, " what do you suppose this is all about Jesse?"
"HHHHMMM" Jesse rubs his chin, thinking deeply, as he looks around at the land before them, " not too sure but if the sign says head East we better do it." Jesse pulls his compose from his backpack and gets his bearings. " Ok, this way!"
"WAIT!" Chyna yells, "the signs says we have to turn three times first."
Jesse shrugs, shaking his head, "Girls" he thinks to himself. "East is East, but ok" he motions for everybirdie to stand still.
"The sign says we have to turn three times then head to the East" Jesse begins to turn in a 360 degree circle, " One, Two, Three" he stops and waits as the last of the group completes their third turn. "WOW, that makes me dizzy" Jesse giggles as he tries to get his balance.
"Alright, let's go this way. The road is narrow so be careful not to get too close to the trees and bushes as we get down this hill." Jesse strides off, happy to be moving as far away from the Enchanted Forest as he can get. The sun brilliantly shines down upon the birds as they enjoy the walk along the old dirt road heading towards the Castle in the East.
"Look, ahead" Rio says to Jesse, " what's that?" he points to a shiny area off to the side of the road about a quart mile away.
"Apache? Did you bring your binoculars?" Jesse asks
"Yes, of course, can't be a good scout without them" Apache pulls them over his head, and hands them to Jesse. " It's a lake. It must be the BC Lake" he hands the binoculars back to Apache. "we're nearly back tot he Castle" Jesse breathes a sigh of relief. Soon he could get the Macaw Guards and go back to find his two missing friends. His happy thoughts are shattered by a frantic cry.
" Cydney and Snowflake. They're gone" Raffi cries, as he rushes around, searching for them. " Where's Pepper? and Gus?" the others begin a frantic search for their friends. I saw Snowflake and Cydney, over there by that red rock. The boys spread out to search, but not a feather can be found from their missing friends. Tears fill their eyes as they return to the milling group, and tell them their friends have disappeared into thin air.
"We have to get out of here, and back to the Castle. Come on, let's hurry" Jesse leads out in a quick waddle as fast as his legs will carry him. The others scramble to keep up as they continue down the road drawing closer to the Lake. As the walk, the breeze begins to pick up, and clouds begin to blow blocking out the warm sun. Jesse feels a shiver of dread as he rushes towards the East..

  Oh Polly, what good news !
I'm so happy dad is back to work ! How'd he handle day 2 ? Me and mom pray that each day is a little better for him so that aunt Karen can get the house back to normal :)

I'm glad she enjoyed her weekend ! What was the conference on ? Mom had a great time at Parrot Palooza and came home with THREE bags full of things for me ! ! ! Let's see . . . in the pictures, the first one is aunt Eva (Kline) and aunt Robin (Hall), in the Palooza picture behind mom is Janet (Stormy's mom) and behind her is aunt Cindy (Drudy), next to mom is Kristen (Tango and Kahlua), and I think that about does it in the pictures. Also there were aunt Cindy (Pedro) and aunt Deb (Oz, Apache, Cheyenne and Parker), Chipper's mom, and aunts Donna and Therese (rip Tooth). After Palooza they all went out to dinner and on Sunday morning aunties Donna and Therese had everyone over for brunch ! Mom's already looking forward to next year ! Maybe more BC moms will show !

We're stuck in a rainy few days - at least the weekend is supposed to be nice ! Mom is about done with the fall housecleaning. She threw out a lot of junk this year and feels good about it !

Be good and maybe mom will let your collar stay off for a while ! love Cookie

  Hello Polly~
I hope you are having a great day too! It's been cloudy and windy here for a few days so I helped mom check all the flash lights and my Coleman kid's lantern so we are all ready if the power goes out. We are suppose to be having an El Nino winter which means we probably won't get any snow but the winds will be strong. The last time this happened we lost power for 4 days. We have our fireplace to keep us warm but I have to have my lantern to light up my room! I do not like sitting in the dark!
Mom stopped by Petco today to get me a bag of my Higgins food. She forgot to order it so my next shipment won't be here for about a week! There was a Quaker parrot there! Mom says he was just too adorable! I bet he won't be there for too long since he was so cute.
Glad to hear that you have the collar off! I hope you get to keep it off for a while!! I think you look so cute with it on but I know you don't like it!!
Enjoy your day sweetie! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Polly
Well, I am enjoying myself today. Mom got so caught up in the book she was reading that she played hooky and didn't go to zumba. Since she reads in my room, that is a win/win for me. We went outside around noon (still reading), and it was just perfect out there. They forecasted rain for today, but it is totally dry. We are supposed to be in the mid to upper 70s for the next week which is my mom's favorite weather.

Now that the book is finished, I finally get to blog (from my mom's knee, of course). I have been very well-behaved and staying off the antique dresser. However I did give my mom a bite on the hand this morning, but she knew why I did it. I had torn apart one of my favorite toys (again), and Mom foolishly picked it up to fix it right in front of me! I thought she was stealing it! So of course I bit her. She knew she goofed, and I didn't even get a time out. And she took the toy out of my sight to tie it back together again. I have to admit it is pretty ragged looking, but it is the 87th reincarnation of the very first toy Uncle
Chuck made for me, and still my very favorite.

Hello everybirdie. Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure Post. I know right now, I sure wish I'd brought my cell phone with me.
Jesse and Jake head across the room, following the sound of the voice, with Kiddo and Sweetpepper joining them.
"Let's grab hold and pull." The birds grip the handle with all their strength, " One, TWO, THREE!" Jesse yells and they tug as hard as they can. They pull, and pull, with all their might. Suddenly, the handle gives, and a small door springs open in the wall. " We did it, we got it open" Picabo calls out happily, as sunlight beams in through the opening. "We're free"
Jesse smiles, happy to think that they would be out in the sunlight in a minute, and soon the Castle macaw Guards would be there to help find his friends Cori and Sugar."I bet their already outside ready to jump out and frighten us as we step into the sunlight." he thinks to himself as he starts to climb through the small door.
"Come on,it's beautiful outside. I'm glad to be free to that corn maze for good." Jesse calls over his shoulder as he steps into the open again. The trees look pretty with all their colorful leaves stirring in the gentle breeze.
Quickly the others rush out through the small door and shake their feathers to calm themselves, after being in the pitch dark, dusty room. They smile as the sunlight beams onto them, and the soft breeze stirs the leaves on the ground around their feet. They start off in the direction of the Castle, looking for help in locating their missing friends. They hadn't gone very far at all when suddenly a terrified scream rose from amongst them. Every head snaps round just in time to see Cookie disappearing into the leaves of a nearby tree. The birdies yell in fright, as the trees and bushes around them spring to life, branches and limbs reaching out to catch hold of them, as they dart and twist to get free. Screams shake the air as birdies are gripped by the leaves and twigs, pulled high up into the air.
"Jesse" Elvis yells, as he dashes to stay free of a vine, trying to wrap around his foot. " help, we gotta save the others"
Elvis, leaps just in time and the vine snakes back into the darkness below the tall Oak tree nearby.
Sky dodges a limb, grabbing BB by the waist and hurrying behind a large boulder away from the trees. " You stay here, I'm going to save our friend Cookie. Sky hops,and jumps vines and limbs that fly forwards to capture him, as he works towards the tree where Cookie is yelling for help. " I'm here buddy." Sky ducks as a branch reaches for his head. " That's it. Enough" he takes out his pocket knife and cuts the vine around his foot, and snips the end of the branch as it reaches forward once more.

  October BOTM POST number six
Happy Sunday to all my BC friends. I hope you all are having an enjoyable weekend. Thank you to each of my friends for their votes, messages and encouragement. I hope your ready for today's adventure in the Corn Maze.
"AUHHHHHH!" Sky coughs, as dusty air fills the room. "What is that awful smell? "
"I don't know buddy, but it wasn't me who did it." Jake laughs loudly, sneezing as the dust swirls and turns in clouds around them. How can that dust blow everywhere when we haven't moved?"
Looking from one to the other, their eyes big. One by one the group files into the stinky, dusty room and crowds together in the damp, blackness. "Everyone here?" Jesse asks
The room is alive with answers. " CORI? SUGAR?" No answer comes.
" Has anybird seen Cori or Sugar?" Jesse questions fearful of what might have become of them in the darkness
" After a moment of puzzled questions and answers, " NO, last time I saw Sugar or Cori was when we were by that hole in the wall, where the maggots where." Pookie and Laka reply. Laka's pretty face pales at the thought of what might have happened to her friends.
"I'll go back and look for them" Raffi says, Cinn-A-Bunn joining him, as they lave the room and feel their way back down the wall. Sky and Jesse rush to catch up, as the four boys search for their missing friends. In the gloomy room, the others stand restlessly waiting. Fearing what fate might have befallen their missing companions.
"We should have gotten to the hole by now. It wasn't this far Jesse" Cinny says
"Yeah, where did the hole go?" Raffi asks concern in his voice, it should have been back a ways in the other direction. " Let's go back, we must have missed it somehow." The four boys turn and retrace their steps. Arriving at the door frame once more they step inside. " DID they show back up?" Jesse asks hopefully. When he hears that negative responses he swallows the lump in his throat.
" I say we go onwards, get outside and go get the Castle Guards to help search. They likely found a way out and are waiting to scare us when we step out the door." BB says, looking at Sky her eyes filled with tears. " I know they're ok, you'll see" Sky pulls her close and hugs her tightly, " we'll find them sweetheart."
"Let's all check out this room carefully for the way out. Stay close so you can feel each others wings and us your feet and wings to feel for the door out of here." Jesse instructs the group. They make their way to the walls, and start to run their wing tips over the icy surface.
"I found something right here" Picabo says, touching a handle made of wood, attached to the wall in front of him. " It must be a trap door outside."
