  Hi Willie,
Thank you, I always have fun on my dates with you sweetie. She gives him a hug and kiss on his beaky. :)

Well mom starts her day time job tomorrow so we'll hafta be on our best behavior.

I think we should just relax on the beach and soak up some sunshine, what do you think Cookie? Willie what do you think we should do?

Mom says no birdie is supposed to go off their tree and go walk about in the house, especially dads room. I think she meant me cause Pookie usually stays on his perch squawking at birds by the window.

Mom will leave work early tho to go to the dentist at 2 so hopefully she gets home while I finish my walk about. Tee hee hee :)

Here's a vote for you my friend.

Hope you have a great non-walk about day. :)

Love,

Laka and Pookie

Come visit me, Angel Sallykins, Pookie says I'm back chillin' in moms shirt. :) & Laka says more beach days for us, yay!!.

takes Willies wing and leeds him around the birdy castle garden and explains all about the honey bee queen and bees they will be getting soon. Queen Boo Boo Bought them on ebay. first we had to find good spots for the hives. we have built these boxes called supers for the bees. the opening must face the south east so the honey bees can get the early sunlight. the supers are protected from the harsh winds blowing from the north and northwest with plenty of shrubs like forsythia, ilex and juniper. we dont want the little honey bees to get too cold or too hot so we are placing the supers under shade trees so that they get dappled sunlight and not full or direct sunlight. first we built a base with cinder blocks and then surrounded that wit pretty brick so it looks nice. then the super is built with layers of board and planks in a box. we can add on to it as the hive gets bigger but for now its best to go with small. i am very excited about the bees arrival and hope you will be here at the castle when we release them. it will be so much fun. i have to check with UPS to find out the expected shipping date

love Queen Boo Boo

It was sunny here, and we got to about 56 today. That was nice. They are predicting good weather all week. That makes Mom happy. Me too! Not warm enough to get out except in the CAR, but warm enough maybe to go in the car. That would be lovely!!

Not much going on otherwise. Fine by me. I love my time with Mom.

  Hi Willie
Mom was so surprised to see them in the mailbox yesterday when she went to go check the mail!And they all came in excellent shape no damage or bumps on them!
This morning was a bright sunny morning to start with,the highs being 54 and the lows of 40,its 48 right now, and Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and vacuumed our room,then she was going to get ready to collect the laundry when skin bro IM'd her and wanted to come down and do some baking together,so Mom told him yes she would do some baking with him and while she was waiting for him to come over,she did a big birdie spa on all of us,Dixie and Kallie both got their beaks dremeled and then all five of us got our nails done.We were not very happy to have all that done to us in one day.And then we all got our weights taken on top of all that!
Skin bro came over shortly after that and he and Mom spent the whole afternoon in the kitchen baking MeatBall Casserole and Cranberry Sugar Cookies and Date nut Sugar Cookies.Then when the Meatball Casserole was done they both sat down and had some.Then they sampled some of the cookies they made.Mom cleaned up all the dishes and pots and baking dishes and packed up some of the Meatball Casserole for skin bro to take home with him along with a big box of the cookies that they made.Skin sis called Mom in the meantime and she was missing her Sundays with Mom baking.Mom on the other wing had thought that she would have the day off today. Before skin bro left to go run some errands,he paid Mom back the money she paid for his insurance on Friday.Then Mom finished cleaning up the kitchen and vacuumed our room one more time and the dining room and kitchen and tv rooms.Then dad came in from burning the sticks and twigs and branches and Mom made him dinner from what was left of what she and skin bro made.Mom packed the rest of it up and now she has enough for at least two to three more meals.She will put that in the freezer.Then Mom made dad his lunches for the week.Mom is hoping for a quiet night now and will probably do the laundry tomorrow.
Aunt Arlene is like my Mom trying to get out in the yard and do some work but there's always something coming up to mess with her plans!Its good that she'll get to see Woman In Gold and get to relax a little after working at the museum
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for sweet Willie!Loving you always and forever,Peepers

  Hey Willie!
In the mid 90's mom hurt her knee.....ended up with 13 orthopedic surgeries because a lot of her joints messed up..... ended 5 years later with a total knee replacement. Anyway during this time she had cortisone shots in every joint you can imagine! And they hurt and didn't help! Happy to hear those shots helped your mom. Some people get a lot of relief from them.
Hope your mom enjoys her tour today!
Heard the same thing about that movie but mom still wants to see it!

  Hello Willie!
Today looks like a nicer day than yesterday was. I guess them scheduling the Steeple Chase was a sure fire way to 'jinx' the weather maker & boy, it was raining all day long! Traffic snarls up pretty quick & not only did it snarl up, it was on the soggy side, too! The Steeple Chase was going to be held come rain or shine.

Do you know what's grumpier than a soaking wet cat? A human, that's what!! A human behind the wheel of a car stuck in traffic of their own making!! Snarling humans are very intimidating! So, knowing that, Mom & her mate made sure to go around all that traffic mess. Poor horses. It just cool enough to give you a chill while being soaked to the bone. Mom & her mate steered clear of the Steeple Chase. It would be greyt to watch & the property they're running on is so beautiful!! But it seems the last 3 yrs. it has been held in the rain. Mom's creaky old bones wouldn't be able to handle that even with her rollator. Lots of grass & soft earth. It was a soggy time for those folks, for sure! Even more so for the horses!

Mom got to work with Ashlynn for a little while on telling time. She was extremely "distracted" but Mom settled her down & did some work at the kitchen island but also on the computer. As a "reward" for being so focused, Mom brought her to the BirdChannel where they watched some videos of people's real live pets & also took her to create some birds on the avatar site. Mom printed them out for her & she took them home. She loved seeing my Pirate Pearl Page. She really loved the pictures & wondered how Mom did those. Mom said maybe next time, after some more 'time & clock' work that she'll show her how she makes those pictures on the 'pizap' page.

Hope all are well at your home. Your Mom home today? Mom was thinking about giving her a call. Hugs to all, SamIAm

PS: No more SNOW!! That's CRAZY! But we've gotten hit with a late spring snow before, too. Been years ago, but it did snow in early April one time since they've lived here. Didn't stay on the ground too long. Gone in a day or so.

It was a sunny morning here to start with and then the sun quickly disappeared,our highs for the day were 51 which we never saw and our lows will be 37,its 48 right now and freezing out there.We need some warm sunshine and summer heat here too!Mom got us up this morning fed and cleaned our cages then she took off with dad to run some errands,they came back about an hour later and then my dad fixed the electrical outlet that Mom always uses to plug the vacuum in as it was heating up the plug and it was not holding the plugs in tightly.Now he fixed it its so much better and the vacuum doesn't stop when the plug falls out.Mom vacuumed the whole downstairs and dad's den and our room and then took care of some more clutter.Then Mom and dad took off again but they were home in no time.Mom is making Canadian bacon and pineapple pizza for dinner tonight for dad and we'll get some crust which we love.

  Hey there, Willie!
I'm just going to leave a short note tonight to thank you for reminding me of voting for the Hat Contest on the Milonga Page. Mom is a bit scattered brain tonight. Had her son & the kids over again to do laundry. Didn't show up again until 4pm. Doing 3 loads takes about to 8:30pm with being right on top of the machines when their buzzers goes off. It was a rainy day all day today.

Mom had an eye appointment on Friday. Seems she had a significant change in her glasses prescription. The doctor also said that the beginnings of cataracts had started forming. Mom asked him should she make arrangements to have it taken care of now & he said, "No, better to leave it for the time being until it blocks more of her site." It seems that the bigger the cataract, the easier it is to remove. Oh, boy! Mom wasn't too thrilled about that diagnosis. Mom has to have new glasses as well as wondering about cataract surgery. Not looking forward to that, believe me. I don't like it when Mom has to have "stuff" done with her. She always get those lupus flares when they go poking around on her. She kept having a dream last night about her looking like she had big fish eyes after having cataract surgery. Crazy Mom! At least, I hope she's just crazy! Your good Momma has had that surgery, right? She didn't have her eyes change into "fish eyes", did she? Mom said in her dream, that is what the lupus did to her post operative cataract surgery!! I sure hope NOT! I don't think I could get used to that.

You have a pleasant evening. Hugs to all, SamIAm

  Heya, Willie!
Yeah, it was 46 but felt like 33 here. Grey day until around 6 when the sun came out. But we sure are not having spring any time soon. At least we escaped the bad weather that was in the Southeast today.

Mom did laundry and puttered around the place. It was one of those days where you don't want to do anything, so she just did whatever she wanted to, and we relaxed. Nice to do that every now and then, doncha think?

Not much else happening. Oh, yeah, Mom is putting stuff under the puter table so I don't go chewing on electrical cords. Sheesh. I mean, talk about taking the fun out of a beak!

Yup! The shots hurt a lot! Mom has one more to go next Thursday. Hopefully they will work. Mom is trying to get into really good shape for the surgery. She is planning on having her knee replacement in October. If the shots don't work mom will try cortisone.
We have been voting in the hat contest. So many awesome pictures to choose from.

  Hi Willie,
Yes I'm looking forward to our date tonight. :)

As morning approaches the smell of bacon and eggs permeates the air and every birdies nares as they awake in a hungry stage. Their bodies still sleeping but the smell of food being cooked over an open fire kinda wakes up their hungry belly.

Pookie along with Cookie and Laka float towards the smell of food cooking along with the other birds as they slowly awake from a blissful nights sleep.

They look on the buffet table and breakfast is ready for who ever is hungry.

The bacon and eggs and blueberry pancakes awaken the sleepiest birds.
Mom says the plates are on the table along with breakfast so help yourself.

Pookie eyes the blueberry pancakes as that is his favorite. Laka looks at all the fruit. Pineapple, mango, papaya bananas and fresh blueberries too.

Wow what a spread!! Every birdies beak us watering just looking at all the food.

There's guava, orange, pineapple, apple and lilikoi juice and hot cocoa too if you want.

Everyone starts piling the food on their plates.

Mom had a tooth pulled on Saturday so that's why we're extending the beach time. Today she went back to the dentist as she kept having pain and sure enough it was a little infected. :(. He shot her twice to clean up the wound where the tooth was pulled, but while doing that mom could feel pain. The injection had worn off which is unusual so he gave her another shot and this time mom was all numb and dumb. She has ta go back again tomorrow to check on the boo boo as it tastes terrible this medicine. What ever mom eats or drinks she tastes the medicine. So hopefully it will be better after tomorrow.

So for now its still beach time guys !!! Everyone yells yeah !!!

Boogie board time yells Cookie and Pookie who race to the water after breakfast while Laka and Chyna decide to just lounge around and catch some rays.

Here's a vote for you and another happy day at the beach!

Love,

Pookie and Laka

  Hi Willie
This morning was a coldish sunny morning with our highs for the day of 50 and our lows will be 35,its 46 right now.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and fed us and swept up our room and got all the trash loaded in the car,Dixie was put in his carrier and then he and Mom took off to Nana's.When they got there,Nana was still working with Amy her PT VNA doing exercises so Mom went and got her mail,and collected her bird room trash and got her other trash and loaded everything in Nana's car to take to the dump.Then as soon as Amy left,Nana got ready to go and they went to the dump and then to the bank to do some banking business for skin sis,then they went to Walgreen's so Nana could return something that wasn't going to work,then by the time they came home it was after 2:00pm.So Nana made a salad with tuna for lunch and then Mom cleaned Nana's ears out with the ear candles she made and then Nana did Mom's ears.Both Mom and Nana visited for a while and just when Mom was ready to leave skin bro called Mom and wanted her to get him a gift card in Stop&Shop so he could pay his car insurance,so Mom had to dig up $164.00 to pay for the card($6.00 activation fee) and put the rest of the amount on the card so he could pay his insurance.Mom took Dixie into the store with him because she didn't want to leave him in the car as it was really getting cold outside,Dixie was very good,snuggling inside Mom's coat,he had his harness and leash on,no one knew he was there.Mom had to really look hard to find the right gift card,it took her 15 minutes and she still had the wrong one,then while she was waiting in line,the person in back of her found the right card at the checkout.Mom finally got through the check out and went home,when she got out of the car and saw the amount she was so upset,they put the wrong amount down.So she was ready to head back after putting Dixie back in his cage when Dad saw how upset she was so he took her all the way back to Mashpee.Then while Mom was there she remembered she forgot to pick up Nana's outgoing mail so dad drove her back to Nana's so Mom could pick up her mail.Mom came home and got dad a late dinner and then had to deal with other stressful things with skin bro.Mom is so tired and hopes that tomorrow she will be able to have some time for herself. I'm sorry this is short but Mom is so tired and she's gonna fall asleep on me!Please forgive me for not spending much time with you,I so apologize,but Mom just can't keep her eyes open for too much longer!
Mom agrees with your Mom about taking over the businesses that are closing,it would be so awesome if my Mom and yours could do it but both are so very busy all the time,Mom can barely keep up with our blogs these days!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses sweet Willie!Love,Peepers

  Heya, Willie!
Glad your Mom did not have to do the RVS room again. Nice change for her to do the aviary, huh? We saw a male Cardinal in the tree outside our window today. Sure is a pretty red fella. We saw the female hopping down the balcony banister the other day. Wonder if we are gonna have Cardinal babies? We had more birdies cuz we had a whole bunch of trees and stuff, but they are redoing the expressway bypass, and so a lot of those got removed. But they built a huge berm further north of our apt, and planted trees and stuff. We had a red tailed hawk family living in the old area. Bet they were surprised when the trees weren't there any more.

Mom ran out for groceries before the rain came, and hafta say she brought me back good stuff--matoes, peas and carrots. Yummy! And then she made me some rice, which we don't have a whole lot. Boy, was that good! She put some tumeric in it, and some chicken broth, and then some Tandoor spices (she really likes food from India). Do we say that I was beak first in my dish for a long time? Yeah.

Thanks for liking my picture buddy! I almost didn't put a picture in the contest this year. My mom is getting shots in her knee...every Thursday for 5 weeks........and when she comes back home she has to take it easy for the rest of the day. Soooooooo...she had the time to make a picture for me! She is getting this type of gel shot to hopefully lubricate her bad knee joint. She needs a knee replacement and has been putting it off for a long time. She had one knee done years ago and is not anxious to get the other one done.
Wow! Such happy news about the Wildlife Center and Animal Rescue League! Such good work....and numbers!

V4U today. It sure has been a stormy spring. There have been just a few days where it was warm enough to open the windows. On those days I sure enjoyed squawking at the wild birds outside.

Give them a little corner
With an offering of food

They'll spin away at night
And they'll hunt for you by day
Keeping your house clean of pest's
In their very special way

So do not go hard with insect spray
When bluebottle's and flies come your way
Remember the little spider's
Who hide themselves away

love Queen Boo Boo

  Hi Willie
We too have snow in the forecast for tonight and tomorrow,how can that be?This is spring,the end of April and May is only a week or two away!That must've been so much fun with those second graders and they must've just loved the animal tour and especially starting out in the bird room!The Animal Rescue League Shelter!I'll bet Mom's sister will fall in love with a sweet little kitty that needs a home with lots of love and TLC!We too were so saddened by the closure of the Proud Bird Pie Shop and the Pretty Rose Flower Shop!Both have been such wonderful shops that have given us such joy over the years,and have made us smile with their wonderfully home baked goodies and their perfect floral arrangements!They will be sorely missed here!
Wishing you a greyt day and I"m sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for my sweet Willie,Love Peepers

  Heya, Willie!
The article is here:
http://www.cnn.com/2015/04/21/asia/china-dinosaur-- eggs-found/index.html

And yup, the eggs were found in China. Just a cool thing--and those were some BIG eggs, for sure! And to have 19 of them intact...wow.

Today Mom took off to go visit her friend Kim, and get her tablet set up again. Long story. She came back and brought me some really yummy chili that Kim's hubby made. And then I let her know I was not happy she took off, and bit her on the finger. She now has a lovely beak "V" on the side of her finger. She gave me a time out on my playgym. I think she forgave me cuz now I am napping on her shoulder.

Hope you are having a great rest of the day, and wing hugs are headed your way!!

Your buddy,
Kaji

Well, this is probably gonna take 3 posts to post all of it. Mom bought herself some dinner by the time she got home. She kept saying she was starving & when her mate made her go sit down to eat, I said quite plainly that I, too, was starving!! (I'm STARVING!) Even Mom's mate heard me say it!! Mom came back & cut up some apples & strawberries for me to snack on! I think using "I'm starving" has some great reactions. I MUST say that MORE often!! heehee!

Hugs to all, SamIAm

DIL stops. She starts to use her head. This day was WEDNESDAY not MONDAY! The whole hour Mom was driving over to their home, DIL was stirring up Ashlynn that Grandma was LATE and she might not get to go to dance or very little of it. She had her churned up real good by the time Mom arrived there. Until Mom revealed the TRUTH of the matter is that her Mom had her days mixed up. Mixed up real bad. Mom bit her tongue & motioned for her to get in the car. She helped her buckle herself in the seat then she went around the front of the car to get in the driver's side & stopped to hug Joel on the way. She smiled & waved at her DIL. She knew if she opened her mouth, something nasty would have spilled out. Ashlynn, like anyone, had to process what just happened. It took her about 10 minutes to stop the tears & pouting & the emotions she was feeling but now was suppose to turn them off like a knob on a record player. Mom felt sorry for her being misled like that. It was a crappy thing to do even if it was unintentional. I reserve my right to ponder if it was really unintentional.

Once Mom was at the dance studio, which they arrived there early, too, there just wasn't any traffic out that day!! They sat there on one of the benches in the lobby. One of the front desk girls came to Mom & said that Ashlynn's costume that was suppose to be picked up that day, wasn't ready & that Ashlynn's Mom & the seamstress & the dance studio's front office had ALL BEEN emailing each other that morning & Ashlynn's Mom knew about it. Knew her costume wasn't ready & that it could be picked up the next Monday. Hmmmm.....so someone she had conversed with during the day made reference to the fact that this day WASN'T Monday. Mom still thinks about it.
Ashlynn cuddled right up to Mom in the lobby. She kept asking about every 2 minutes if it was time to go into class. She can't tell time yet, either. Mom let her hold her phone and showed her how to read the hours then the minutes after the :. Ashlynn liked that Grandma taught her something, but when Grandma showed her the face of a real clock there in the lobby, Ashlynn didn't have a clue on how to read it. They will be coming over on Saturday for her son to do some more laundry. The dryer repair guy hasn't come back. Maybe he has & somebody didn't answer the dang door! Mom suspects that's what really happened. She is going to have Ashlynn sit up at the island in the kitchen & do some homework to see what she knows & doesn't know. She's thinking about making a card stock clock for Ashlynn to learn to "tell time". She needs to learn how to read a calendar, too, something Mom's kids learned to do at 5yrs old in kindergarten. Mom just shakes her head at the disadvantages that have been deliberately heaped upon this child. It's just NOT right!

Well, this is probably gonna take 2 posts to post all of it. Mom bought herself some dinner by the time she got home. She kept saying she was starvin

  Good Day, Willie!
Mom was totally exhausted yesterday after finally getting home from the dance classes with Ashlynn. Mom asked her son about the new "dance bag" for the granddaughter & if it would be okay to purchase. He said she just got a new bag from the other Granddaddy who pays for her dance lessons. He bought it for her about 2 months ago. Mom's son began to think & realizes it's still hanging on the end of the stair's banister. Seems like a huge case of lazy is what the real problem is. They just have to swap out the bags & she's good to go. Mom is thinking about giving her son a call & reminding him to do just that. It's a show of disrespect to not only the person who bought the gift but to Ashlynn as well!! She's responsible for keeping her dance articles together & losing anything has some dire consequences. Like not being able to attend dance that's already paid for. No wonder the kids can't appreciate any gifts because their parents don't! Obviously, Ashlynn doesn't know it's there or that it was intended to replace that old dance bag she has now. It's up to the grown ups in her life to show her how that's done. She's very passive & is most likely waiting for them to say it's okay to USE IT!! Sheesh!

Yesterday, Mom was right on time & telephoned Ashlynn's Mom that she was just leaving the house. She's suppose to be there at 4:15pm to have Ashlynn to the dance studio by 5pm. She has to pass about 6 different schools to where they live so time has to be allotted for each one of those & the slow downs a driver must make through a school zone. Mom made such good time because there wasn't much traffic out for some reason. Mom didn't care but came to Ashlynn's home too early. Mom could've parked in front of their townhouse but that would've caused unnecessary pressure on the kids. You see, they wait at the window watching for her to come. If she was there too early, she is made to SIT THERE while the appropriate time finally arrives. The kids can't come outside to see her. Mom doesn't know why except for the dark heart of her DIL. So, Mom has found a nice church that is only 3 minutes away. She parked there & used her phone to do some work on....which takes Mom a lot of time because she's not too "phone savvy" as it is. At about 4:09 Mom cranked up her car & headed to their home. She got there & made a phone call because DIL can't hear her knocking from upstairs. Mom gets out of the car to help Ashlynn into her car seat when Ashlynn & her Mom came outside. DIL was consoling Ashlynn who was pouting, crying & had the maddest face Mom has ever seen her make!! When she asked what was wrong, DIL says that Mom is LATE & that class started right NOW, and Ashlynn will be late coming in & will miss most of the class. Mom shook her head, "No, YOU told me to be here at 4:15pm to have her to class by 5pm. She has two back to back classes today." DIL stops. She starts to use her head. This day was WEDNESDAY not MONDAY! The whole h

  Hello Willie~~
I hope you are having a great day! Yep! Mom has to write down most things these days. At work she has a cart that she takes on the floor with her and she always leaves it at the end of an aisle just in case she forgets where she was! She is all over that store and sometimes forgets where the last department she was in is! Leaving the cart on the end makes it easy to find if she forgets!
She has a magnetic pad of paper on the side of the fridge for everyone to write down what we need at the market. She has to do that because there are things she never uses, like sugar, so if we run out she would never know. Sometimes someone will write down something we already have so mom will have to get it out and show it to them! Happens with meds all the time.
Enjoy your day!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Willie,
Can't wait for our date, but can we go after the Bon fire?

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 day 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 more beach days for us, yay!!.
