  Hello Polly~
I hope you are having a fun day! Oh Sketti sounds wonderful! It's always a good idea as far as I'm concerned!!!!
That seems strange that they would have a banquet room with no A/C. I don't know how hot it gets there but when you have a big room to use for parties, you are going to have lots of people in there and it's going to get hot! I'm sure ceiling fans help but it would depend on how many people are there for the party!!!
We hope your mom enjoyed herself anyway!!

  Hi Polly
We have had bad thunderstorms here. Lightning hit the well and the water was coming out brown. Yuck!

Your vacation sounds nice!

Dad has an RV and he takes us button quail and Sky Guy with him when he travels sometimes so he doesn't have to leave us with a bird sitter.

We don't like it very much at all!

Dad is hoping soaking the chickens feet will get rid of the mites. He will probably have to soak them again sometime to make sure.

He is going to pick up the baby parakeet tomorrow.


It is not the original baby he has been waiting for. That one didn't want to stop the baby bird formula so the breeder decided to give dad another baby and let that one take his/her time.

I will let you know how it goes.

Here's a vote.

  Hi Polly
Today was hot, but not unbearable with a high of 87. Mom started working on getting me into my carrier about 9, because she figured it would take about a half hour and that would be just right. Well, she had to leave for her massage therapy at 11:00 and still had not gotten me anywhere near my carrier. Tomorrow's high is 93, and she goes to the gym all morning. So that will probably be 2 days in a row with no sun bath. Bet I will be ready Saturday morning for sure.

Next Monday and Tuesday were both supposed to be 100 or over, but now they are saying 99. We can only hope it will keep going down, because Mom just melts in that kind of heat and it is not a pretty sight!

Fruit smoothie for lunch again today, and I am now trying to get it from Mom's mouth. She keeps giving me sips from the glass, but I want hers. She explains that it would spill out of her mouth and pour all over me, but I am afraid I just don't care. For some reason she just doesn't get it.

  Hey Polly,
Hi everyone,

Well, last night I was a very baaaad baaaad birdie! Mom says I have a death wish or something like that. I wonder what she means by that?
Anyways when mom and dad were outside on the porch talking she kept checking in to see if I was still on my tree and not Laka’s as we are on opposite sides of the living room. She must have had the notion that I was gonna stay on my side of the room, but nooooooo Mr. Sneaky being me, I had to fly to that big tree! Yes I flew to Laka’s tree and the good thing about it is that she was playing in her cage eating some seed wreath thing on the opposite side that I was.

Mom says that Laka is being a good girl, but I’m just being a boyeee! I’m a big bird in a little birds body is all. What is a bird to do?? I ask you all now……..
Maybe mom will get the hint that I want a big tree like my fister Laka. I bet mom will say that it’s too big for me and the one I have is the right size for this little bird body. I say give me a biiiiig tree!!!! I’m a big boyee, I can handle it, I know I can!!

Some birdie please tell my mom to get me a bigger tree!!!! I’m getting frustrated with this baby tree here!

Here’s a vote for you.

Hugs,

Lil Big Bird Polu

  HELLO FROM LITTLE MISS LUCY
Hi Polly,
Mommy's very careful with me around Coco. She won't hold both Coco and me at the same time, or any of the other birdies. I don't like that though and try to fly to her. She puts me down because she doesn't know how Coco will react to me, and like you say...I'm very special!

We are now on day 5 with Coco, and much progress has been made in a very short time. Yesterday Mommy only had to show him the hated glove once, and today…not at all! Mommy says that he’s amazingly quiet for a cockatoo! Daddy says, wait and see. He may be just settling in. He seems to get wound up in the evening just before bedtime which is when I’m winding down. Hopefully he’ll get his schedule in sync with mine soon.

  Hello Polly~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Mom heads back to work tonight! Bummer! We had a nice time and mom says we will do it again. She is going to have a real mess when she gets there tonight but she knew that!!
Today is McKenzie's birthday. She's a year old already! This is the day dad picked for her birthday. The first vet figured she was about 6 months old when dad found her. Yesterday was a year since we lost Mandy so we didn't want to use that date so dad picked the 23rd.
She is going to get Subway for lunch since dad found her near the Subway at a truck stop in New Mexico. Mandy always got Burger King since she was found in the trash at a Burger King. If they ever find another dog I sure hope it is at a pizza place!hehehehehehe Subway is okay but pizza would be better!
I hope your day is spectacular!!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Polly
It's Popeye.
Sorry we missed you yesterday. Dad overslept.
Yesterday wasn't as hot. only hit 90. But the humidity was up again so it didn't feel much cooler. Dad finished cutting down that bush by the driveway but when he was done he was done for the day. We've told him and told him not to work out in the heat but he doesn't listen. Guess it's a human thing.
Mom's parronts came over for dinner last night. Mom and dad fixed tuna salad, sliced tomatoes, hard boiled eggs, olives, pickles and chips. They also had little mimi pies for dissert. Dad gave in and turned on the air conditioner in the kitchen during dinner.
Today will be much cooler, with a high of 85 and a low of 62.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Hi Polly
Wow, those cars sure do last! We are impressed!
Mom's daughter is getting released from the hospital today, so mom is ready to go pick her up. We had rain and thunder boomers overnight, and it's still gray and cloudy looking. It's supposed to clear up by noon, but mom will get to the pool late, as she has to make sure her daughter is settled in at her home and has all the meds she needs. She should be leaving the hospital with at least one prescription for antibiotics.
Otherwise, today is the day mom and her sis go to dinner, so if she doesn't make the pool, she'll still go out tonight for awhile.
Update: Mom picked up her daughter and they dropped off a scrip for antibiotics. Also, it's stopped raining, but it will be muddy at the pool, so we think it's probably not going to be a good day to go.
I hope you are having an awesome day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

We can follow the royal coach that's here for Zippy ! !

Especially since it's a busy day at my house today . . . daddy's car (mom's old one) goes in for inspection today, mom is taking her sister to motor vehicle to register daddy's old car, then little g'nephew has his gym class - oh, and a stop at the post office for stamps ! Good thing yesterday was an out of cage all day day . . . now we can play at the castle !

Mom enjoys walking in the early mornings now that school is done - it's cooler and less crowded on the river trail - too bad we don't live closer to each other - we could play while the moms walk together !

Let's hurry and be there first !

  Heya, Miss Polly!
Oh, it sounds like you had a lot of fun, other than that icky storm that came thru. Did have some thunderboomers last week and rain, but it was not too bad. Just hot and humid!

Mom is gonna do laundry tomorrow and is going to iron some of her clothes. Then she is going to the place where she gets facials--they are having a 'Casino Night' and will have food and raffles for beauty treatments--Mom says she doesn't win anything but she hopes that changes, as she can't afford the facials these days. But it should be fun anyway.

Mom and I hung out today, not much going on. Rain came, along with some thunder, around 6. Supposed to get more storms tonight, but hope they are not bad. Looks like it will be south of us, so hoping our buddies in IL are not affected by bad stuff.

Wing hugs coming your way!

  Hello Polly~
I hope you are having a great day too!
Mom's brothers are the ones who came up with the plan to meet in Portland. One lives in California and one in Arizona. The youngest one in Arizona has school aged kids. The other kids are all grown up and on their own. Not sure if they were planning on visiting Portland or just picked it to meet in. Moms sister and the youngest sister in law do not get along. Actually, that is putting it mildly. The youngest sister in law like to be in charge of everything.
The youngest sister in law decided that mom and her sister should fly to Phoenix and they would all meet there. Mom already had the time the boys picked scheduled off and there is no way she wants to go to Phoenix this time of the year. Moms sister has no one to watch her animals and doesn't want to go to Phoenix either. Then there was the matter of the paying for a plane ticket at the last minute. So no reunion for now. It would have been nice to spend a few hours in Portland getting caught up but perhaps another time without any in laws!!
Have a wonderful day sweetie!

  Hi Polly
I bet Zippy thought that kite was a big predatory bird! I know I used to think the hose was a snake, but Mom took time and showed me it wasn't. Can't do that with a kite!

Well, today is the last day to vote in the Prom Pic Contest, so be sure to get over to the milonga page #165848 and cast your final votes. The announcement with the milonga details are on both the Calendar Page and the Milonga Page.

Today's high is a little more reasonable at 87. Still hot, but not unbearable. Mom started working on getting me outside at 10AM (80 degrees), when I reminded her by climbing into my carrier. Unfortunately she was still in her jammies, so she had to go throw on some clothes and of course I wasn't in there any more when she got back. We finally got outside at 10:25, and even though Mom brought out my spritzer bottle we still had to head back inside by 11. Mom went right to the shade, and I got spritzed several times but was still completely dry when we went in. (Hint: our humidity is 33%!!)

Then Mom decided another smoothie was just the thing for lunch, and this time she used crushed ice instead of water. It was nice and thick and very cold. Instead of cereal for breakfast, she had pie (naughty mama!), so she still give me my banana bits and cut the rest in half and froze it. So the smoothie was nanners, frozen strawberries and frozen mango. Very tasty, and even the protein powder didn't take away since it was vanilla. Yum! Mom holds the glass tipped so I can drink right out of it.

  Hi Polly
I hope your mom is okay after her procedure. The shower sounds like fun, though.
Mom got the pic of her with the skull at the museum. It came via email today, but it's a pdf file and mom doesn't know how to convert it to jpg to put it in my gallery for a day or 2. We will welcome all suggestions.
This morning mom got her mani/pedi. She had the owner of the salon, so she was out of there in under 2 hours. Wasn't that great? She was happy to have them done finally. After she got home, she went to the pool for the afternoon. It was kind of gray and cloudy looking, but hot. She predicted that the sun would come out when she was ready to leave, and it did, of course.
Anyway now we have mom for the rest of the day, which is just fine with us! Mom's daughter is still in the hospital, so we ask for prayers for her healing. The swelling has gone up, but the redness has faded a bit.
I hope you are having a great day today, getting lots of great weather, as well as cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  that sounds like a great vacation !
except for the power out thing . . . it's fun to go away - makes you appreciate home !

I'd say happy humpday, but during the summer every day is happy ! ! Mom ran a few unnecessary errands yesterday (I think she just wanted to drive !) She picked up a folding exercise bike for daddy's sister's birthday (not till July 23 . . . told you she just wanted to drive !) But then she came home and we played fetch and had some quiet head skritching time :)

The weather was nice - warm, but not too humid and sticky. Today should be similar so we'll finish up with the thank you's and mom will head out to the post office. And that's it ! The rest of the day is MINE - I've got plans too you know !

Mom's sis should be by either late this afternoon or early tonight to pick up daddy's old car - it's a baby compared to the one she's driving now - this one has only 97k miles ! It's actually gives mom kind of a kick to see how long her cars last - the one her sis is driving now how almost 180k on it ! ('01 Dodge) and it's just heading to the donation yard . . .

How's aunt Karen's knee doing ? Each day when mom walks down by the river she thinks of her . . . give her love for me ! Cookie

  HELLO FROM LITTLE MISS LUCY
Hi Polly,
I'm so glad to hear you had a wonderful time on your vacation. Sorry that Little Zippy was frightened by the kite, but skin bro was a quick thinker and did the right thing.

Yes, we know all about Goffin's cockatoos. Remember we had Dolly for two years? They are also very stubborn and willful. Coco arrived last Sat. and this is the end of day 3 with him. He has lived most of his 9 yrs. without any boundaries. Coco will only step up when he wants to and he pretty much hasn’t wanted to since arriving here. Mommy cuts him some slack though since he’s in a strange place, with strange people and without his Daddy. However, if he’s going to live here, even if it’s not permanent, he must learn to step up on command. When Dolly was alive, Mommy picked up a pair of very thick cotton work gloves for emergencies. So each day, she’d give Coco about a half dozen chances to step up voluntarily. After a while, if he refused to cooperate, she would bring out “the gloves”. She offered her hand. He refused, or put his head down for scritches, or sometimes threatened to bite. She then put on one of the gloves and offered her gloved hand. He fearfully ran away. Then she offered the ungloved hand. He still refused. She did this three times and then removed the glove. She then offered her hand again and he stepped up right up. Each day it has taken less tries before he’ll step up. Progress. Tonight when she was putting us birdies to bed, she again tried about a half dozen times with no success. So she brought out “the gloves” and laid them on the table where he could see them. He looked at the gloves on the table and stepped right up for Mommy just as nicely as you please. Now Mommy is not so naïve as to think that all her problems with Coco are solved, but she is definitely pleased with his progress.

While Coco and Finnegan were out on the porch tonight, they were having quite a conversation with each other. Coco talks pretty well, though not nearly as well as Finny does. Coco said a few things to him and he replied, “Hello, birdie!” Mommy thought that was so cute! Mommy most always thinks Finny’s cute when he talks, and I think he knows it. I don’t have to talk to be cute. Mommy loves me just the way I am.
Love and Hugs from Little Miss Lucy♥

  Hello Polly~
I hope you are having a fun day too! Is it wonderful to be home? Vacations are lots of fun but it's good to come home too. Mom was suppose to be going to Portland to visit with her brothers yesterday and today but they did not make the trip. Not sure why but since mom already had the time scheduled off she took it. She has plenty of vacation time and gets another month in September. She never seems to go anywhere so she always has the time. Maybe the brothers will come up another time. One lives in Arizona and one lives in California. It's been a very long time since she has seen either of them and was looking forward to it.
I hope you have a wonderful rest of the day!! leaving a vote and a big hug too!

  Hey Polly,
Thanks! :)

Last night Polu Boy was good, but still sneaky. He was in the corner by the doorway where the blankie covers parts of the cage.
He sneaked out but I quickly put him back in. Then I pinned the blankie to the doorway so he couldn’t get out eventhough its dark.

Laka sleeps soundly as I think watching tv bores her so she has a birdie nap while we watch tv.

It drizzled a little bit of rain last night and this morning, other than that it’s a nice sunny day in Hawaii Nei.

Here’s a vote for you, hope you all have a great big birdie day.

  Hi Polly
Well, the wildfires in So Cal are all south, east and north of us by many miles. Although we are in no danger and needn't even worry about smoke or ash, the forests being lost are a tragedy.

Well, they forecasted 105 as our high yesterday, but at the end of the day it turned out we got to 107. Who can tell the difference once it goes over 100, it is just too darned hot? Today's high is calling for 95, so a little better. I still did not get outside though. Mom checked at 9:30, and it was already too warm. Maybe tomorrow.

Mom did drive over to the library to pick up the books she reserved and wasn't able to get on Sunday due to arriving before they opened. Works for me, since it is only a half hour round trip and then she has plenty of reading material to enjoy in my room.

We had a fruit smoothie for lunch since Mom didn't want anything warm at all. I like those, and we both enjoyed it. Didn't really cool her off, but next time she plans to put in more ice cubes and less water. Either way I find them very tasty.

  Hi Polly
It sounds like everyone, including the birdies, had fun on vacation! Did they go into the lake? Mom got everything planted, and now is trying to keep it all alive. Putting those baskets in with the lilies of the valley was a good idea.
Today mom had a tour in the morning at the museum. It was a day camp with special needs children and their chaperones. They were very late getting there, as their bus broke down, so the tour was shorter than it should have been. The kids were interested in the dinosaurs, though, and loved the touchable items mom showed.
Mom got that pic back today that the teacher from Ohio sent her a few weeks ago. Her boss said she'd email a copy too so we can post it. Mom likes it because it shows the little Archaeopteryx head.
It was grey and sticky this morning, seemed like it was going to rain any second, but it turned into a beautiful afternoon. So you know where mom went! That's right, she spent a few hours at the pool, but now she's home with us for the rest of the day. She may go to the hospital to see her daughter after dinner, but she might just stay here, too. She hasn't talked to her daughter yet. Yesterday she seemed pretty sure she'd be home today, but she texted mom and said they are keeping her again.
I hope you are having a good day today, getting lots of great summer weather as well as lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

It's Popeye.
There are updates on Panther's mom posted on the Calendar Page.
Yesterday hit 106, a little too hot for all of us. Mom and dad, too. And what did mom do? She ran the washer and dryer. It's dad's job to take out the stuff that doesn't go into the dryer and by the time he was finished it looked like he just stepped out of the shower with his cloths on. He said he was hot (DUH).
At least mom came up with a good idea for dinner. El Pollo Loco!
Today will be clear and much cooler, with a high of 84 and a low of 67. Much better temps.
Mom cleans our cages and cleans up the dishes after dinner. Dad does everything else, inside and outside.
Hope your day was fun.

I MISSED YOU ! I want to hear all about your vacation ! ! !

It's the first whole day of summer . . . so we celebrated with watermelon last night ;) I do love that stuff ! I didn't get out cause it just got too hot by the afternoon - mom even put the a/c on for a while so she could cook. Another warm one today . . . but that's OK, at least mom is home most of the days now . . . we worked on thank you's for the kids yesterday too. Now mom has to get to the post office to mail them -

Last night mom took my heap (measuring cups, paper towel roll - a whole one - my bar bells, all out of my cage for night-night and then went to get my nutriberry. She heard daddy laughing and when she got out she saw that in that short time, I had dragged everything right back into my cage ! I'm a determined guy !

Don't know what's on today's agenda - I do know mom's hair is looking shaggy so she may try to go get a trim - when it's so warm, she doesn't like it on her neck - I think she should have feathers ! They get too long and just molt out !

Daddy is hoping mom will let him try out her new car today - yup it finally came - hmmmmmm. . . we'll see ! I do know there's lots of room for all my toys when we go on vacation ! It'll be lots more comfy traveling - whenever it is we go - daddy is still a little reluctant to leave g'pa since the summer place is about 4 hours away.

Is today the day aunt Karen has to catch up on all the laundry and cleaning ? Will you get to help ? Have a great day - love Cookie

Come visit me, Cookie ready for the prom, BC Library Now Open & Fly with the angels my Sally.

  Hello Polly~
I hope you had a fun day! Oh I totally understand why your mom didn't want to use the Kindle to get on BC. Mom tried it just once and it was difficult! The BC has been down a few times while you were on your vacation!
I can imagine how much fun you had and traveling in a caravan too!! I'm sure your dad was just kidding about your cages taking up too much room. I know he would not have had a good time without you guys there.
Is it hot at your house?? Seems to be pretty warm everywhere but here! That is okay with me! I'll take mild temps any day!
Enjoy the evening sweetie!

  Hi Polly
Our Dad has been really busy here, too.

He usually has to change the bedding, water, and food in the chicken coop once a day.

He cleans out the whole chicken coop two or three times a year. It takes all day and he is glad it doesn't need to be done more often! He has to take out all the nest boxes and feeders and perches and bedding. Then he hoses the whole thing out. He has to do it on a warm day so it has a chance to dry before the chickens come back in at night.

also all the chickens have foot mites that the wild birds bring in. So he had to soak all their feet.

Lets see.....I think right now we have fifteen chickens.

There was sixteen, but Sqeakers the rooster died a few weeks ago. Dad doesn't know why. The chickens are getting older, so it was probably just old age.

There was one point a few years ago when dad had over thirty-five chickens.

Most of the chickens will come right up to dad. There are a few that keep their distance, but no mean ones.

He has had some mean roosters in the past. They can be dangerous.

I think most towns have that rule against keeping roosters. People think they are noisy, which is true. They start crowing as soon as it gets light in the morning. They can be loud!!!

The hens are kind of noisy too. Not loud exactly but they are constantly clucking.

It can be loud if their are a over thirty hens and four roosters!

The baby parakeet is old enough to come home, but the bird breeder says it don't want to stop the baby bird formula. I guess it tastes better than the parakeet food. He/she can't come home until it is eating normal adult parakeet food. Maybe a couple of weeks. The breeder says if it take too long, dad can have one of the other babies.


Here's a vote.

  Hi from Woof and Meow
Hi Polly, sorry we haven't been around much. Mom's always busy working when she isn't playing with us. We just visited the vet the other day (hate going to the vet!!!!) and all our abs came back with a clean bill of health. Mom thinks we should invite you to see some of our videos on YouTube, like this one, for instance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cj34WnXpHI8. Have a good night. We're giving you a vote.

Come visit me, Woof and Meow.

  Hello Polly~
I hope you are having a wonderful day too. We are having thunderbooms today! It doesn't last for long and they really don't bother me anyway. The storms move in and then out. It dries up and gets sunny and then the rain comes back again! We did get to see 2 rainbows! There were very cool!!
I hope all is well and that you are enjoying yourself!

  HELLO FROM LITTLE MISS LUCY
Hi Pretty Polly,
I hope you and Zippy are having a wonderful time on your vacation, Mom and Dad,too. That was quite a week our bird club had last week! Both shows were big successes, especially the show at the school on Friday. It was great and the kids loved all the birds! The outdoor adoption event on Sat. was all right, but extremely hot…92 degrees! Mommy said thank goodness there was a nice breeze all day, but she still took Finnegan in the car for a little while and ran the AC for him to cool down. Still our club made only $15 In donations. That wasn’t much for all the sweating they did. However, they did attract a couple of new members and attenders at our fair the next day.

Our big annual bird fair was a huge success on Sunday, but all of us birdies had to stay home ‘cause Mommy and Daddy had to work at it. They were there from 9 am to 5 pm. We were all really happy to see them when they came home. We don’t have the final figures yet as to how much money we raised for the rescue, but it appeared to be very successful. Mommy has been trying to catch up at home this week and also get some much needed rest ,and I’ve been trying to catch up with my time on her shoulder. That was a very busy week!

Mommy just spent about 2 hours on the phone first with a lady and then with her fiancée who wants to surrender his Goffin’s cockatoo to our rescue. Well, he actually doesn’t want to surrender his bird, but feels that it’s in the birdie’s best interest, since he works such long hours in a family business. He only gets to see the poor birdie for a few minutes each day and the bird has started plucking because he’s so frustrated and lonesome, at least that’s what the man believes. Anyway, Mommy’s been asked to foster him, and she’s having a hard time deciding since she always fails at the last step…adopting them out to a forever home. The forever home they always end up in is ours!
Love and Hugs from Little Miss Lucy♥

  Hi Pol & Zip my dear friends-from Jenny & dad
The only appropriate words for today and this W/E is HOT AND VERY HUMID, so dad will be staying in our home for sure! Nearly every area of our country has severe weather occasionally, but like the cold, the heat does not stick around for very long, thank goodness! Ms LaLo was sure rowdy last night, and extra clingy this morning, but dad always gives her what she wants, she is so spoiled! We are all doing pretty good here at our home, and once dad gets his old motor running, it will be business as usual! Have a Greyt Saturday dear friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see you all tomorrow...

Forever love From Jenny, Ms LaLo, Christy, Ziggy, & our daddy

PS~-Ali was NOT an American hero, he was a coward, he dodged the draft and made tons of money! The real heroes lay in Arlington and other National Cemeteries! My daddy has been there and he knows...

Come visit me, Mr Ziggy-Chyna dear I am trying to be a good YCM, Jen Lynn & Alfie~How real love should be..., Limon Dallas~Love my home & still see my old mom, The Raiders~Happy New Year from the team in 2014!!, Love from Christy~Sunshine in the McAviary with JL, Ms LaLo Lee~Because I love you all so much... & Mr Flash~Summer at the McAviay.

I hope you are having a fun day! It's cool, cloudy and windy here. Perfect napping weather but McKenzie won't be quite long enough for mom to get a nap! Ian will be home soon and he can have puppy duty for a while!
Enjoy the day sweetie!
