My former mom, a vet tech wanted mom to take me over a year ago because she felt bad nobody had time for me anymore and the cats in the house were starting to stalk me. Couldn't have been soon enough! (We had to wear dad down and get him when he least expected it after his surgery!).

Hi! My name is Kookie-Bird -Justice For Ozzi-ty 4 BOTD 7/31/15

I am a Cockatoo from Newton, NJ.

Kookie Bird, Nurse Cookie

10 years old   F

Cockatoo

Bananas, peanuts, chicken, pasta, just about anything these guys are eating! And CORN!

I like to hang out with dad. I fell in love with him the first night I cam home. He just had footie surgery, so I perched on his ankle to be his "footie nurse".

Now I love the camera! Say, cashews! My current pet peeve is that little brat chihuahua Petey who thinks he can keep me away from dad. He barks and chases me, but I always squawk and chase him away, finding my dad!

Dad just cuddles and snuggles with me. I sit with him in the office for hours while he works. Dad never forgets to give me a peanut when he brings me back to my roost cage.

I like to stash food in my plumage. I also like to run my beak through the food dish and "spread the wealth around"..

How sweet I am!.

  Hi Kookie
Mom has me in my travel cage on the dining table now so I can join everyone for dinner and I don't have to sit in my room all by myself.So Mom takes me out and brings my pellet dish and leaves it in the bottom of my cage and that little brat pooped in my pellet dish by climbing up to the top of my travel cage.Tonight at dinner Mom was cleaning up the dishes and dad screamed and he had told Candida that he wouldn't be home tonight to snuggle with her and she took a big chunk outta his arm!Jeez!Dad did you have to tell Candi that you weren't gonna be home tonight?Poor Uncle Steve having that dental work done and hurting from it all,I'm so glad that we don't have teeth to mess with!Please give him a warm hug from me to help him feel better!Now just why can't you go to the Valentine's Dance with the Parront's?You could take your sweet beaks with you and dance right alongside of them!I like your idea of having us a nice big party with pizza on Saturday night!Poor Aunt Tanya having a bad day with the inspectors,what is wrong with these people?Mom can understand about the short visit last night,Aunt Tanya was really worried about Uncle Steve and wanted to make sure that he was all right!
Another dark,dreary,dismal rainy day here.Our highs for the day will be 53 the lows of 35 and its 54 right now.After Mom got dad off to work,she got us up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us a good breakfast that Nana sent home for us of spaghetti and meatballs!It was quite a nice change from our usual bean mix.Mom will be working on making zucchini pizza and getting some more of the linen closet cleaned out as its really beginning to get so messy.There are so many things that have to be taken out of there.We get to have Mom for today and even though she'll be busy getting more chores done,we're just happy she's here with us!My dad just called and told Mom that he's got to go to work at 3:00am Friday morning to prepare for the snow storm that we're supposed to be getting.So that means a fast night for my dad,he's got to come home from work,have dinner and shower and go right to bed in order to get up for 2:00am.Mom will make sure he has fresh sandwiches made and his lunch cooler box is filled with things to last till he gets home on Friday night(hopefully).
Other than that its going to be a nice boring day here with Mom and we can't complain about that!

  Hi Sweetbeak!
I finished our Valentine's Day picture for the contest! It is on my profile picture and also at the bottom of my page if you'd like to pick it up. I will turn it in to Kiddo! I hope you like it. I really wanted one of you laying on the piano with me singing to you but couldn't find the right set up for it! I like this one though!
How is your week going? We were in the 90s for two days and now a big storm is blowing here and it is sprinkling and very windy. We are outside with mom on the porch. She helped with our picture! Not much going on. I have been trying to sneak up on the cats and bite them. They are afraid of me and run! They are afraid of the rabbits too. The rabbits chase the cats around the yard! hahaha!
Hope you have a nice week! I am dreaming of you! Here is a nice bag of almonds (don't share, all for you)! Love, Picabo

  Hi Kookie
This morning was a dark,dull,dismal looking grey day.The highs for the day are 55 the lows of 52.Mom got up and got dad his breakfast and his coffee going and left him something for lunch,then she got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and fed us our bean mix,then she got dressed and left to go to Nana's.When she got there she fixed Nana's VCR again and hopefully it will work this time and got some toilet paper down from a high shelf for her and then Mom called skin sis and she came down and they got into skin sis's car and left to go to the RMV to get skin bro a duplicate registration and sticker for his car as he accidentally threw his out.From there they went to Stop&Shop where skin sis works and both Mom and Nana both got some good clearance items,from there they went to Hyannis to the Mall where Nana exchanged something at Macy's from there they went back to Mashpee to Asia to eat lunch and from there they went to Roche Bros so Mom could get skin bro a cold bottle of water as skin bro was thirsty,from there they went to bring the duplicate registration to skin bro at his work site and the GPS kept sending them in circles through this development over and over again.Then skin bro texted skin sis and told her he was leaving work and Mom was so frustrated that she told skin sis to go back home.By the time they got back to Nana's it was beginning to rain and getting even darker.Mom and skin sis unloaded the car and both Mom and skin sis left to go home,once Mom got home it was raining really hard and dad helped take the packages in while Mom washed the dishes that dad left her in the sink from his lunch and breakfast.She cleaned up our cages and then made dad some dinner,cleaned up from that and then put the groceries away and waited for skin bro to come and pick up the duplicate registration which he did shortly after Mom got done with dinner.Its been a very long day for Mom and she is hoping to get some time in to relax tonight.

  Hi Kookie
Poor Aunt Tanya dropping the metal guard to Josh's dishes and having to deal with hearing that big BANG!That definitely had to have woken every birdie up fast!That Baldrick had better watch out for Josh and trying to grab his tail feather like that or he may have no head one of these days if Josh decides to get back at him!It sure sounds like a lot of action was going on there as usual I only wish I could be there to help you supervise and make sure things were running smoothly!It was a nice quiet day here with Mom,with no one coming or going or interrupting her getting the chores done.The big cardboard that Shiloh brought home from work really is working well and that brat fister of mine hasn't been able to chew her way to the grate yet.Mom even found a way for me to join them at the dinner table by having me stay in my travel cage on the table and of course that Candida has to crawl all over my cage and try to chew any paper she can get her beak on and try to grab me too and at the end of dinner Mom let me out on the table and Candida went right up to me cause I went near my daddy and she beat on me.I can't get anywhere near him when she's around,like I was here first and I had my daddy's full attention and dined with him for years and years before she came on the scene!
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs of the day of 48,the lows of 35 and right now its 46.Mom got us all up after she got dad off to work and cleaned our cages and swept our room and then fed us our bean mix.Then she made out some bills and got them in the mail and then she vacuumed the house and got something out of the freezer for dinner.Then Mom got our our travel cage so I could stay in it while Mom was busy cleaning the house so I wouldn't have to be all alone in our room.Maybe this will work out so I can join the parronts for dinner without Candida beating me up or climbing into my basket that Mom had for me.Its another non eventful day here and boring but we are happy about that as long as Mom is home with us all day that's always a good day for us!Mom can't wait for her visit with your sweet Momma tonight!That is the highlight of her day!

  Hi Kookie
Oh does it sound like you all had a greyt time with teaching Aunt Tanya a lesson or three or four or six or 14 on why she shouldn't dump on you and go out on a weekend!And here Mom thought she had it bad with my fister Candida tearing up the papers in her tray,Mom swears she's getting her head into the bars of the grate in order to reach the tray paper,there's just no other way she can chew that paper all up unless she's sticking her head through the grate bars.What a mess that brat bird makes with all the tray paper chewed to confetti and how it gets all over the floor and beyond.And no matter how many heavy things Mom puts on top of the grate,Mom put a heavy cardboard that my dad cut to the size of the grate and then the newspaper on top of that with heavy cardboard rolls on all sides and a big heavy dog toy rope on the back with a rope ball and a wooden chew toy she still moves everything and gets under the paper!
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 52 the lows of 34 and its 52 right now.Mom got dad off to work and then she got us up and cleaned our cages fed us and swept our room.She's trying the large pieces of cardboard that my dad cut to fit over the grate so Candida won't be getting to the tray paper.Mom is hoping that will work for her.Mom cleaned up more clutter in the dining room and vacuumed the main floor and she's thinking of getting all the dusting that needs to be done upstairs.Hopefully there won't be any distractions today and she can get something accomplished!There's nothing much else going on but a wonderful boring day with Mom home with us all day long.We may even get some Mom time afterwards!
Mom actually got to vacuum upstairs and get the dusting done that she hasn't been able to do for a long time.It was really a good day with no one here to bug her or hold her up from getting things done.Mom even got to make dad and herself a chicken breast dinner with whole cranberry sauce and veggies and dad had some of the breadsticks that Shiloh brought over yesterday.We are waiting to snuggle with Mom as soon as she gets done with the dinner dishes!

  Love to my sweetbeak, Kookie!
Good morning, you cute cockatoo! I just read about a Valentines Day picture contest for this month's milonga! Would you be interested in joining me in a picture for the contest? It would be an honor, dear lady! Anyway, let me know so my mom can make us a picture! I was thinking of a serenade scene or Romeo and Juliet scene or something like that. What do you think? Any suggestions, dear one?
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Love, your dedicated and forever Picabo

This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 49 the lows of 42 and right now at 7:30pm its 43.Mom got us all up and cleaned our room and cages and then gave us our bean mix with peaches in it.Mom had enough time to put in a wash and strip her bed,make dad his sandwiches for the week and then Shiloh called and said she would be over with her laundry.Mom got her wash out of the washer,put everything in the dryer except the sheets and a few other items and hung the sheets out on the line.Then Shiloh came over with her laundry and she put hers in while Mom's was in the dryer and they baked for the rest of the day.Mom made a rainbow cake with bright green cake,bright yellow cake,bright orange cake and bright red cake all in layers.Shiloh made birthday cake cup cakes and watermelon cookies,while Mom made pumpkin spice cookies.Shiloh brought a cheese pizza from Papa Gino's and cheesy breadsticks and they had that for lunch and Mom could only eat two slices.Then Mom cleaned the kitchen and all the baking dishes and utensils etc.And after that both Mom and Dad went out back and brought the sheets in and folded them.Then both Shiloh and Mom got the rest of the laundry and folded it and Mom put her laundry away and Shiloh put hers in her basket to take home.Shiloh went home as it was after 5:00pm.Then Mom made dad dinner of cheese and bacon omelet and pan fried toast.Then both Mom and dad made up their bed and had their showers and now Mom is just getting now to get to our notes done.
BC wouldn't let us on this morning and everything was from several days ago.Even our profile pics were not current.So we are very late getting on.

  Hi Kookie
We will always keep our Aunt Tanya in our prayers,she is so very special to all of us here especially to me!She is my very own special angel and I will forever always be grateful to what she has done for me and my Mom.My Mom and I only wish we had that ability to command our bodies to do just as we say!Mom would command her mouth to refuse all food!The stress in the last several months has really gotten away on her.Anthony is starting a new job on Monday and it will be for Service Pro a company that deals with Fire and water damage,cleaning out houses(hoarders)etc.They gave him a full wardrobe of uniforms,he has to buy the Kakhi pants though.He has to take a test this weekend(written open book at home)and bring it in on Monday in order to earn his overtime.Its out of Sagamore Beach and not far from where he lives.He'll be working M-Fri until he earns the overtime points and by Summer will be working on the Islands.He will always have one other person working with him as they work in teams together.He gets paid biweekly.Nana has tried sucking on some small mints and things like that.It works for a while and then the coughing is back again..Oh I sure don't blame you for not wanting to get that birdicure done.I know that we'll be getting another one by next week!Ugggh!Blue is a good boy,he was so calm the day Mom took his pictures!
This morning was a bright sunny but cold morning with the highs for the day of 39 the lows of 37 and its 39 right now.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and fed us our bean mix.Then she got my dad's breakfast and as she was going to get some of the chores done a man with a big white pickup truck came to our door.Mom had no idea who he was.Dad said it must be the snow plow guy to collect his pay from plowing out our driveway.And it was so Mom gave him the money for it and then skin bro IM'd Mom and was coming over to get some money for his rent and gas as he never got his last two checks from his former job.So after Mom gave him the money for that,(now she's going to have to wait yet again to pay her bills)he left and my dad is out back collecting sticks and debris from the yard from the storm to get ready to burn tomorrow if the wind isn't too bad to do so,its burning season again here.So far its going to be an uneventful day here and that's just the kind of days we all love.Mom being home with us all day and no place to go.Mom will be working on getting her chores done so that when skin sis comes over tomorrow to spend the day she'll have some of it done at least.

We were so eggcited to see Blue on the spotlight page when Mom got home tonight!I'll bet he's so full of himself now with all the attention and adulation's coming in for him!Oh that Moggie is the boss of the bird room that's for sure,its so funny how he refuses to get back in his cage!
Mom and all of us are so eggcited to hear the greyt news that Aunt Tanya will be getting the stitches removed,our prayers are with her for February 24th and we are hoping she won't have to deal with any snow storms,give her a big hug from all of us here!Way to go Aunt Tanya!
This morning was a dark day with rain/snow showers in the forecast.Our highs for the day were 42 with the lows of 31,right now at 7:30pm its 37 and cold.Mom got another early morning phone call from skin bro who wanted to come over to pick up his social security card as he needed to take it to his new employer.Mom quickly got it for him and made him promise to not lose it and bring it right back to her when he was done with it.Then after he left,Mom got all the trash loaded in the car along with the recyclables and then woke us all up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and fed us our bean mix.Then she got the carrier out for Dixie and got him in the carrier and wrapped it with a warm blanket.She warmed the car up before going out there with Dixie and then they took off leaving Candida screaming.When Mom got to Nana's she unloaded the trash and recyclables and put them in Nana's car along with all of Nana's recyclables and trash,got Dixie settled in his cage and brought him down to the Bird Room so he could spend the day with our cousins,Bella and Trixie II.Nana got Dixie some bean mix and then Skin bro called Mom at Nana's to bring the social security card back to her there.He stayed and enjoyed breakfast that Nana made for him but before skin bro came over Nana had a really bad coughing/choking spell where she couldn't even catch her breath and was gasping for air over and over again.Mom got really scared and started shaking not knowing what she could do for her.Nana was getting so hot and sweaty and it seemed like hours she was choking/coughing like that but in reality it took a little over 45 minutes.Nana never got to eat her breakfast after that,and it all started with a tickle way down in her throat.She's had these choking/coughing spells before.Mom feels so bad that Nana has to deal with this constantly,besides the constant coughing she does everyday she has to deal with the choking/coughing and on top of that her painful hip and leg pains.Nana promised Mom that after the month is over she will try and call her regular Dr.to set up an appointment to see if she'll do something for her.This is way too upsetting and no one seems to even care!
Mom and Nana went to the dump and Mom got rid of everything,then from there they went to Stop&Shop where both Mom and Nana got some sale items,from there they went to CVS where they spent too much time waiting on someone to come and help them

Oh did my Mom ever so love her visit with Aunt Tanya my guardian Angel!
This morning we awoke to a dark dismal,dreary,rainy day.The highs for the day were 42 with the lows of 27 and right now at 6:30pm its 36.Late in the morning the sun came out nicely.As soon as Mom got dad off to work,she got our bean mix ready and then did a few things before she woke us up early today.She cleaned our cages and had to spend a longer time on Candida's cage as she tore it all up again.Then she swept our room and gave us our bean mix.She got Dixie's carrier out and got that ready to go and warmed the car up then brought Dixie out and got him in the carrier.They took off to Nana's and when Mom got there Nana made them some tea and they had something for breakfast as Mom got there early,by 9:15am.They then went to the Vet and Dr.Kennedy was there to examine Dixie.He got that dye stuff in his eye again and Dr.Kennedy told Mom that Dixie will have a permanent scar on his cornea and that the swelling had gone down around his eye area and the ulcer had gone.He no longer has to take his meds!YAAAAYYYY!The computers were running slow at the Vets and Mom couldn't get a receipt from the visit and she will call tomorrow as they never emailed her one either.From there they went back to Nana's house and Mom got Dixie settled in his cage there and Skin sis showed up a few minutes after Mom and Nana got there.Nana gave Dixie some french toast and some fresh bean mix she made and then they all got into skin sis's car and took off for Hyannis.They went to the Mall and to Macy's where Nana was looking for a bathrobe but couldn't find anything to spend her gift card on but skin sis and Mom saw some things on the clearance racks.Both Mom and Nana couldn't believe the prices of the clearance items!Some you had to scan to see if it was marked down more than what the tag said.From there they went to Ocean State Job Lot and Mom got 4 20lb bags of wild bird seed,she still has plenty in the garage as the birds for some reason haven't been going through it as fast as they normally do.From there they went to Joann's where both Mom and Nana got something they needed,Nana some material to make ear cones with and Mom some binding to make Dixie a new snuggle blanket.From there they headed back to Mashpee to Subway to have lunch,it was after 2:30pm,Mom got a veggie sub,Nana got a black forest ham sub and skin sis got half a sub with a bag of chips and a soda.From there they went to Sweet Waves where they all got some froyo and then from there they went back to Nana's.They had some coffee there and Mom tried to get Nana's VCR to work as it wasn't recording.Mom pulled the plug out and then reprogrammed it and hopefully it'll work tomorrow for her.Then as it was after 4:00pm Mom got Dixie ready to go back in his carrier and Dad called and Mom told him she was on her way.When Mom got home Dad unpacked the car for Mom and Mom worked on getting dinner ready,a stir fry with rice mixed veggies and hot

  Hi Kookie
We are all so worried about our sweet Aunt Tanya not feeling good and having to get her tail feathers up an hour earlier to get to work,its hard enough getting there on regular hours but to have to drag yourself up in the darkness is not an easy thing to do!We are so praying that she feels better and can make it through the day and back home to relax!Mom called and got an appointment with Dr.Kennedy for Wednesday morning at 10:00am.Now my Mom will have to shake her tailfeathers and get outta here on time to drive to Mashpee to pick up Nana then to Sandwich to the vet.Mom is hoping its not gonna be freezing cold like it has been when she's taken me to the vet.I so hope that you and Doo get some time tonight out and about and snuggle time with your sweet parronts!We didn't get much til late at night because of my dad's crazy schedule!And can you believe it that they're telling us we'll be getting another snow fall on Friday?If this snow don't melt we'll be getting buried again just like last year.They're telling us 1-3inches but then they said that in the beginning for this last storm we had too!
This morning was a bright pleasant sunny morning with the highs for the day of 35 the lows being 32 and its 32 right now.Mom got dad off to work and then she got us up and gave me my first two meds of the day and then she had to spend an hour again on Candida's cage cleaning it as she tore the whole thing apart yet again!Then after she got us all cleaned out and our room swept we got our breakfast.Then Mom went out to shovel all the snow off the deck and deck rails and to push it off the wild bird feeder as the snow has been holding it closed.My dad was going to take half a day off so he could clean off the deck and make the path to the mail box but something came up at work so he couldn't leave,Mom offered to do the deck and she wound up making a path to the mailbox but it wasn't that great.After she got done with the deck,her back was killing her.That sure was a lot of snow and was it heavy!Then Mom scrubbed the bathrooms that she had been trying to get to for the last several days and when she gets some things put away that have been left around from the weekend she'll vacuum the house.Mom is busy but at least she's home with us all day and we aren't complaining about that!Anthony came over and spent a good part of the afternoon with Mom and she made him lunch and coffee and served him up some of the rice krispies she made so now whatever else she had to get done will have to wait til tomorrow.Dad came home and shoveled out the walkway from the deck to the mailbox better.Mom can't wait to talk to Aunt Tanya.She's just getting so nervous about my eye not healing fast enough.

  Hi Kookie
Our hearts go out to poor Aunt Tanya not feeling good and that gastrointestinal thing can be quite upsetting and very painful!We all give her warm wing hugs and Mom,Nana and the whole family give her warm gentle hugs to help make her feel better!And it doesn't make it any easier when she has to get up even earlier to get to work an hour earlier either!She just has to be egghausted by the time she gets home tomorrow night!What is it with these places that don't get the memo and wind up giving out the wrong packages?My Mom does the eggact same thing,she makes sure we are getting proper nutrition and we no longer get anything with seeds in it and haven't been since we were little.When we were working birdies she changed out the sunflower seeds to safflower,now as we aren't working we don't get those anymore at all.Oh you made it to the Milonga and you went with your sweetbeak Picabo and I think he won a prize,I think the Iditarod or maybe the ice sculptiing.We were disappointed because we had been voting for you all along and neither you or Samantha got in.Now what is that mutt doing thinking that Aunt Tanya will just fall off her perch like that!Maybe we all should come over there and just lay down and snuggle close to her to help make her feel better!
This morning dawned a sunless day with the highs of 31 the lows of 24 and right now a little after 7:30pm its 21 degrees.The blizzard conditions of last night has ended and the total snowfall for The Mills was 11.5 inches.Sometime between 2:30am-6:00am or so the plow guy came and plowed our driveway.There are still some winds out there and now the sun is finally beginning to peek out here and there with little blue patches in the sky.My dad finally got to come home in a zombie like state around 10:00am.Mom made him something to eat and he took a shower and shaved and then went right to bed.Skin sis called Mom and wanted to come over and Mom told her to wait and see,the roads here are cleared right down to the pavement but who knows if it will freeze later.Skin bro tried calling Mom and she had been at church.Dad and she went to Church first as they couldn't get there last night.There are mountains of snow just everywhere and our street is all bumpy and lumpy driving down it.Mom is happy to be home in a warm house and she'll be staying inside all day.Skin bro was going down to plow Nana's driveway out and then Mom's nephews decided that they were going to go down and do it also.If Nana doesn't get anyone to shovel her driveway out,she gets everyone coming all at once.We are so lucky that our power never went out on us and we all got to keep warm all night.
Mom spent the rest of the afternoon making homemade chicken pot pie and rice krispie treats for when my dad gets up if he ever gets up!He's been up since 11:00am yesterday working til 10:00am this morning.
We are all praying that every birdie and their parronts who had to deal with last nights storm made it through safely and stayed safe and wa

  Hi Kookie
How awesome you look!Oh did my Mom so love her visit with your incredible Mom last night.She feels much more assured getting to talk to her about my meds and what she should and shouldn't be doing for me.I have been good at taking my enro with very little fighting but my eye drops I just can't stay still just watching that big old drop coming at me right in my eyeball.At least I feel better knowing that my Aunt Tanya has the same problem with getting those drops all over her face too!How awful that poor Aunt Tanya has to get up an hour earlier each day for work!Who can even move normally in the darkness or even be fully awake!We sure do pray that she can come home earlier to you all at the end of the day!
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the high's for the day of 30 the lows of 28 and its 27 right now at 6:00pm.After Mom got dad off to work Mom got the rest of the trash collected and brought out to the car along with the recyclables then she got us up and cleaned our room and cages and fed us our bean mix.Then Mom warmed the car up and got Dixie in his carrier and wrapped it up with a blanket then got him in the car and off they went to Nana's.When Mom and Dixie got there Mom brought Dixie inside and got him set up in his cage there and then put all the trash in Nana's car along with the recyclables along with Nana's trash and recyclables.Then Nana made Mom and herself some breakfast of french toast and blueberry tea and then they got into Mom's car,and Mom took Nana to the eye dr.They had to wait there for over an hour before Nana even got in.Nana had an 10:50am appointment and Nana never got to see the Dr. until well after 12:30pm.People came in after Nana and yet they got in and left while Nana and Mom sat there!Finally after they got out of the eye drs,Mom drove back to Nana's and they got in her car and went to the dump.Mom got rid of all the recyclables,then took the trash and dumped that as well,from there they went to Falmouth and Mom got Nana's car filled with gas($1.95 a gal)then from there they went to Shaws/Star Market and picked up some pizzas that were on sale for Saturday night,and several other mark downs,then from there they went back to Nana's as it was already 3:00pm and they still hadn't had any lunch.Nana had gotten a salad for their lunch and they had that.Mom unpacked the car and put all her things in her car and helped bring in Nana's things.Nana made Dixie and our cousins a fruit bowl for snack and then after Mom and Nana ate lunch it was after 4:00pm and getting dark so Mom and Dixie left to go home.Dad was waiting by the garage and as Mom brought Dixie inside and settled in his cage,dad unpacked the car and then Mom put all the groceries away and then got Dad some dinner.She cleaned up our cages and really had to work at Candida's cage again as she made such a mess with chewing up her cage tray paper again so Mom had to sweep the floor all over again,dad had already given Candida her snack of a peanut.Mom

  Hi Kookie
That must've been so upsetting for your poor Mom to be blown off for their dinner date by Uncle Dave!We are all so praying that everything is all right with him.What an aweful stressful day poor Aunt Tanya had with not only Uncle Dave but also your sweet daddy feeling so badly and having to spend a good part of the day at the VA!Mom is so looking forward to her visit with Aunt Tanya tonight.I am giving Mom a hard time with those eye drops and she even had the nerve to clip my twisted nails on me and I kept squirming around on her so she couldn't really do all of my nails like she wanted to.They keep curling into my skin and Mom hates to have to dig them out so she likes to keep them as short as she can.Oh Kookie Bird would I just love to help chase Aunt Tanya with you around the house so she don't forget to have her visit with my Mom!Mom had a scare this afternoon when she thought she saw one of us flying around the house when she was doing something in the kitchen.She knows I can't fly or even get outta my cage and she couldn't believe that Candida got out as she knows she locked her door.So she went into our room to check on us and to give me my afternoon eye drops and couldn't find Candida in her cage at all,she was banging her hand on the papered grate and still no Candida so Mom pulled all the heavy cardboard tubes that my dad brings home for us and as she separated two of the tubes she saw Candi's tail in one of them.She has those tubes so Candi won't chew the paper and get her head stuck in the grate but Candi insists on chewing the paper to get to the grate!Mom was relieved to see her playing in the tube at least!You gotta go down and leave a vote for yourselves at the Milonga page to win the ice sculpture contest there!Me and Peepers have been voting for you every day.Your flock gets a vote each so you could easily win that as we've been voting for you and Samantha every day!Mom is so looking forward to her visit with your awesome Mom tonight!

You better tell that Moggie that we don't want any Kentucky fried Cockatiel and to leave the electrical box alone!Who's gonna kill any more mice for you all if he gets himself fried?And you sound like Candida,she does the same to Mom making Mom chase her all over the house as she wouldn't want to go back to her cage!Mom so loved talking to Aunt Tanya last night and she so looks forward to her visit tonight to tell her all about what happened today!
This morning was a bright sunny but freezing cold morning.Our highs for the day were 33 with the lows of 22 and right now at 6:30pm its 28.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us our bean mix and Dixie got his first set of meds for the day.Then Mom warmed the car up and got Dixie in his carrier surrounded by his warm sleepy hut and then she covered his carrier with a warm blanket.They took off to Nana'a and picked her up and went to the Vet in Sandwich.When they got there,Dr.Kennedy greeted Mom and Nana and took them in the exam room.Dr.Kennedy was very nice and was very gentle with Dixie and kept him in the exam room with Mom and Nana while she applied the stain to his eye and shut off the lights to look at it more closely.Dixie's eye is still swollen and red and she listened to his lungs and said that the clicking sound is no longer there that Dr.Blake heard last week.Dixie has to continue with the eye drops and the Enrofloxacin for another week and has to go back in a week to see how things are progressing.He has an ulcer in his eye.Both Mom and Nana really liked Dr.Kennedy and Mom will make the appointment requesting Dr.Kennedy for next week.When Mom and Nana left the vet with Dixie they went back to Mashpee where they went to the bank and Dixie came with them,then Mom went and filled her car up with gas($1.87 a gal)with her Stop&Shop gas points card,it was freezing out there pumping gas,then they went to Walgreen's so Nana could get a few things,then to Stop&Shop where Mom got several markdowns on cranberry sauce,soup, and baby food peaches for our bean mix.Mom and Nana went to the deli and Mom got some crunchy veggie salad and kale salad with walnuts,a piece of breaded chicken and a potato crunchy thing,the whole time Dixie went to the bank and every store they went into.After they left Stop&Shop they went back to Nana's and had the lunch they got from the deli and Dixie got to join them from his cage.Nana told Mom to bring him closer to the table with them and she made him up a fruit bowl and he devoured everything as he really didn't get to eat this morning.Mom gave him his second dose of eye meds while she was there.Mom cleaned out the filter in Nana's heat box and then she shoveled her driveway as much as she could as underneath the snow had turned to ice,she then put rock salt on it and even that froze in a big lump altogether.Mom fixed the time on Nana's VCR for her also.Mom came home as it was getting dark and made dinner for our dad(he unpacked the car for Mom

  Hi Kookie
Oh does that movie sound like a put your head under your wing and roost movie to me also!Good for you Kookie Bird for chasing that mutt behind that fat little chair in the family room and keeping him there all the while screaming at him!Too bad that your daddy brought you back to your condo!How is my Angel Aunt Tanya doing and feeling.Mom and all of us here were praying so hard that she got to get some rest and is feeling better now.How awesome that she brought you back some new toys that you love to destroy!Now are you being good and leaving those beautiful snow white feathers alone?You are so gorgeous and it makes me feel so sad that you are messing with them!Please be a good girl and leave your feathers alone and chew up all those new toys instead!
This morning was a dark dreary morning with our highs for the day of 37 the lows of 27 and right now at 5:00pm its 36.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages,swept our floor and then fed us our bean mix.Then she got dad his breakfast and made his sandwiches for the week and then some for the storm coming today.No sooner had she got that done than skin sis called and was down to do her laundry,so Mom collected what she had and they went down cellar and put in a wash and while that was going through Mom came back upstairs and dremmeled my beak and then did Celine's beak.I got my first dose of meds for the morning and then skin sis had Mom heat the pizza she brought with her from Papa Gino's.It was a hot wing pizza and she brought cheesy bread sticks and some hot wings with it.We all got a taste of the cheesy breadstick crust and some pizza crust.Skin sis and Mom got the second load of laundry in the dryer and folded the first load and Mom put hers away.After the second load of laundry was dried they both folded it and Mom put that away and by that time it was getting late and Mom didn't want skin sis to hang around too much longer because we are expecting snow any time now and my dad is on call to leave when his phone rings.After skin sis left Mom vacuumed the whole downstairs and our room and did the lunch dishes.Now we are all just waiting on the phone to ring so Mom can finish getting the coffee made and dad's thermos filled.We are supposed to get snow anywhere from 1-3 inches and its supposed to be a rain snow mix and change over and won't stop snowing until 9:00am tomorrow morning.Mom and all of us aren't looking forward to having snow at all!Our dad finally got called out for 8:00pm so now its just Mom and us to snuggle on the couch all night!Its snowing now and everything is covered in white,now they're saying that it won't be melting anytime soon because we are going down to the freezing mark.And that in some areas will be getting more than the three inches that were predicted.Oh Joy!It better not be us!

  Hi Kookie
That must be the order of the day for our Mom's to be getting our brunch in to us late.My Mom did the same thing this morning.
This morning was a dark dreary,dull,dismal pouring rainy day here with the highs for the day of 43 the lows will be 30 and its 43 and still raining and windy.Mom got us all up and cleaned our room and cages,Candida made a mess out of everything,but she's better now that Mom puts her wooden chew toy on the bottom floor of her cage,Mom finds lots of splinters from that all over the place.Mom is happy about that at least she's not getting down to the grate.Then Mom fed Candida her breakfast but she took me and had a bad time this morning trying to give me the oral meds in my broken beak.She had held me steady and was squirting the meds in slowly when I moved and the meds went shooting out of my beak and into my eye.Mom had to clean my eye out and then get another dose in the syringe and then do it again,this time I was choking on it and Mom had to stop and hold me til I calmed down.After she finally got me settled and I finished the dose orally,she gave me a break while she got the eye drops out.That didn't go well either,just as she was getting the drop to come out of the bottle,my eye made another big tear and the eye drop went on the top of my head and not in my eye so Mom had to do that all over again.I refused to eat when Mom put me back in my cage and so then Mom took me out and put me in the big playgym in our room and I went right up to my bowl and started eating a little.In between all this skin bro called and came down so Mom could help him out with something and then he quickly left when the phone rang again and it was Nana who never heard the phone ring when Mom had tried to call her earlier.She's having trouble with her phone for some reason and can't hear it ringing and last night she was having trouble with her VCR not working right.Its been a very busy morning for Mom.At least she's home with us for most of the day and only will be going out later on this afternoon for a few hours and will be back by dinnertime.Mom wants to dremel my beak tomorrow as its quite hard to get the syringe in either side and she doesn't want to upset me with everything else I have to deal with right now but she doesn't want to choke me again either.Mom still can't believe how fast you are when you take off like that to go upstairs!It was just such a pleasure to watch how fast as lightening you were that day when you chased Petey into his crate!Mom thinks that the swelling is coming down by my eye/ear area but my eye is really watering up big tears still and it makes it hard for her to get the eye drops in.Mom tried to let me stay in a dish pan so I can stay on the dinner table with Mom and dad and that brat bird Candida kept coming over and jumping in the dishpan with me and beating me up so that was the end of me being on the dining table and joining in dinner,I got banished to my cage.I was on the playgym in the dining room and

Oh does it sound like a flying circus over there with every birdie flying here there and everywhere and to have poor Aunt Tanya to have to stick her hands in poop first thing in the morning!EWWWWW!What is going on with poor Aunt Tanya,we are so worried about her!Please give her a warm hug from all of us here to help make her feel better and we so hope she gets some time off to just relax and get her strength back.
This morning was a dark kind of a day to start and then by late morning the sun came out strong.Our highs for the day were 42 with the lows of 42 and right now its 37.Mom packed the car with the trash,she had the recyclables in the car from yesterday and then she packed Dixie in his carrier and wrapped him in a warm blanket around the carrier,then Mom warmed the car and got Dixie in and took off to Nana's. When Mom got there she unloaded all the trash and put it in Nana's car,and collected Nana's trash and recyclables and put them in the car.Mom gave Dixie his first two meds of the day and then got him comfortable in his cage there and he got to stay in the kitchen where it was warm while Mom and Nana took off to get their errands done.They went to the dump first and Mom took care of all the recyclables then to the trash tunnel from there they went to Hyannis to Town Hall where Mom had to pay her RE taxes.Mom was going up the stairs into Town Hall and the door was blocked with a wedding party.Mom thought that town Hall was closed until someone from the wedding party moved away from the door and Mom walked inside to pay her bill and while she was paying her bill the wedding party was having pictures taken in town hall.As soon as Mom was done,she went back outside where the wedding party was taking more pictures in the cold,the bride and the wedding party all wore sleeveless dresses and it was freezing outside! From there Mom and Nana went to PetSmart to get our cousins some dried fruit but they didn't have any that wasn't filled up with nuts and raisins.Then they went to Dollar Tree where both Mom and Nana got some things.From there they went to Hearth'N'Kettle to eat as Nana had a $10.00 birthday coupon to use before Sunday and they both got the stuffed shrimp lunch with butternut squash,Nana got broccoli and Butternut squash while Mom got a double butternut squash.From there they went back to Nana's and had some tea and lemon cake and Mom helped Nana with a few things.Then it was time for Dixie and Mom to go home and when Mom got home she unpacked the car and cleaned Candida's cage(she tore apart her cage again)gave us our snacks and when dad came home he fed Candida her pellets.Mom made dinner and as soon as she's done we will be getting our notes out and have our snuggle time with Mom and Dixie will be getting his last doses of meds for the day.Oh do I just hate that nasty syringe being shoved in my beak!But after a little coaxing from Mom I will open my beak and let her shove that thing in my beak and take my enrofloxacin.My eye we

How wonderful to be able to BBQ this late in the season!Oh do we so miss those times out in the warm sunshine and getting to have bits and pieces of what the parronts are grilling,veggies fruits,meats etc!And there's nothing like a good grilled pork chop bone in!Oh those nuts sure are eggspensive and they keep going up in price along with all the other things in the store and besides not only are the prices going up but the packaging is getting smaller and smaller and Mom is paying more and more for it too!Mom is waiting to make the appointment for the follow up with me at the vet.She wants to make sure that we aren't gonna be forgotten again while they decide to take more dogs and cats etc that come in well after we've been there.Mom was so worried as she had forgotten my bean mix at home,she usually takes it with her and it was a long time before I even got to eat anything because of the long wait we were forced to endure in the cold room.Let me tell you that cookie Mom got for me at the bakery tasted so good.Mom is hoping to work on Samantha's ice sculpture tonight or tomorrow,she got her day interrupted unexpectedly by Anthony today!So she got no chores finished and no notes done.
This morning was another freezing cold morning but at least the sun was out shining.The highs for the day will only be 30 while the lows will be 21,right now its 28 and the wind is howling and really whipping out there hard and strong,we could hear it all last night.Since Mom had gone out all day yesterday she is home with us for the next two days and we couldn't be happier!It rained and snowed a little here late last night but by morning the snow was gone and it looked like it never snowed at all.The other crew had gone out last night so we were so happy that my dad got to finally stay home with us last night to snuggle with us and Mom.Mom got us all up and gave me my first dose of meds,then cleaned our room and cages and we got our bean mix.Mom is going to try and get more things done in the house this morning and see if she can spend some time with us later on.Its going to be a nice boring day here with nothing special happening.The skin sibs might be coming over so if they do Mom's chores come to a screeching halt so she's going to try and get as much as she can get done before they come over.Skin bro came over around noon time and didn't leave until nearly 4:00pm so that ruined all the plans Mom had for the rest of the day.Hopefully Mom will have a nice uninterrupted day tomorrow so she can get some things done then.

Tell me about it!Mom is so fed up with the vets around here and how us fid patients get treated!Mom saw the same thing happen to me in Angell Memorial in Boston when I went there to get my head xray when I first broke my beak.They made all us fids wait even though we had appointments and the dogs and cats came in ahead of us and got tended to while we waited for hours and hours.Mom had told Dr.Morgan's vet tech or secretary that she didn't want to drive in the dark or be out that late when the weather was even more colder than in the daytime.All she said was she understood but she never checked to see if Dr Morgan could take me earlier,then Mom gets an email several hours later in the afternoon telling Mom that she can do me as a drop in between surgeries.But by that time Mom had already called Dr.Blake and didn't feel like playing appointment roulette!Mom didn't want to take the enrofloxacin and my eye had this bright green gunk in it and she told Mom not to be alarmed if it comes outta my nares and outta my mouth.Then when I came home I was pooping black which got Mom so upset.So far I'm fine and back to normal pooping.Mom only wishes we could be there with you and have Dr Linda take care of us.What's wrong with us here on Cape Cod?Why can't we have a reliable avian vet here,got a new vet building but they don't do avians and they're only a three minute drive away from here!Everything is for the dogs and cats.I guess we don't rate,they even have dog stores here and leave bowls of water out for them with dog cookies for them!How prejudiced is that?Mom is feeling the lump under my eye and it seems to be going down.Mom will be giving me my meds soon,I'm so not looking forward to that lousy enro again.Or having some more drops in my eye!YUCK!You be careful with that Blue Boys cage and don't let your sweet Too Toes get caught up in his beak!You need all your toes to keep that furball in line and chase him back to his crate!Oh my sweet Too fister I will always be more than happy to make you pretty pics for the Milonga.I wanna do one of all of us together.You,me,Carter,and peepers and Moggie!

Mom was such a mess today trying to figure out which vet to go to and she called Dr.Morgan and was told she doesn't do morning appointments just from 2:30pm to 5:00pm.And the closest appointment was next Monday at 4:30pm.Mom didn't feel like driving in the dark down Suicide Alley in the snow,they say we're supposed to get snow here tomorrow and some say it'll start in the afternoon and another one says not until nightfall.I like having the saline in my eye as it helps to open it up and make it look better.Mom wanted to wait and give it more of a chance.But she's kinda worried about the swelling or lump under my eye/ear area.So Mom called Dr.Blake in Sandwich and that's where we'll be going tomorrow for a late morning appointment.Oh your poor sweet parronts not feeling so good,it must be something that's going around as Anthony hasn't been feeling good since Saturday and he was feeling bad yesterday when he got home.Oh how wonderful to have the computers back and not so good being on Chrome with all those pop ups again!I'm hoping Aunt DJ will fix the problem for poor Aunt Tanya!There's nothing more maddening than to have those nasty computer problems all over again!Mom loves the Beach Boys and has their CD.Brian Wilson was such a prolific writer and it was so awful what that quack doctor did to him for all those years.My dad was gone all night last night and came home after 4pm and as soon as Candida heard him come in she flew right to him and stayed with him in his room snuggling close to him and pooping on his sofa arm that he wiped off.After dinner dad went to get to bed to get some sleep and Candida flew after him to be with him and she had to make a U turn as he had closed the door to his room and upstairs on her and was she ticked off!Oh you are such a funny baby and daring going over to Blue's cage and dancing all over it!You have got to be careful that Blue doesn't grab your toes!Please give your amazing Mom a big hug from my Mom and Nana and everyone here to help make her feel better and give your daddy a hug from all of us here too.We all hate to see them both so sick!Mom just can't wait for her visit with your sweet Momma,she looks forward to her visits each week!It really makes her day so special!Mom doesn't know what Dr.Blake is going to give Mom for me to take and she doesn't want me to have anything that's toxic.She can't wait to talk to your amazing Mom.Mom doesn't want to accept and meds from her unless she can talk it over with Aunt Tanya first.

Mom is getting so frustrated with my eye and beakie,one moment it looks like its improving and the next its all smashed in,red and cloudy with bubbles again.My nare just won't stay opened,Mom has been using the saline solution several times a day in both my eye and my nares.I really hate that stuff getting me all wet and I just hate it when Mom holds it over my eye to let it drop in on my vision!Mom has me sleeping in the little basket wrapped up in a blanket while she does our blogs and so that Candida won't bug me.I can imagine how awful that must've been to have all those nasty pop ups impeding your vision and making it ten times harder to blog!Candida just won't quit on the chewing up of the grate paper,our birdie trash is filling up fast and Mom just went to the dump yesterday and won't be going back again til next Friday!Mom is trying to think of other things that she can cover the grate with,she doesn't want to see that happen again,she thought she was going to break her neck just trying to get her out of the grate,her head was down facing the tray and her feathered butt was up in the air!Mom couldn't even get her head turned or pull the grate out because her head was right where you slide the grate out in that corner!You are right her head doesn't belong in the grate,Mom only wishes she could just pull the grate but there's a big gap between the bottom of the cage and where the grate goes.I agree with you that you should've gone to the feed store to help supervise things there not that mutt!How sad that Aunt Jeanne couldn't come over,isn't that just like cable to mess up when you have plans!Jeez!When are those computers ever gonna get there?Its a pain trying to type on those super flat keys!Oh Mom would love to see that movie about Brian Wilson.His twin daughters Carnie and Wendy are in the music business now,he was a really greyt writer and Mom just loves all their stuff,its sad because she never got to see them when they came to the Melody Tent in the summer.He was a smart individual and had lots of money but somehow was still very unhappy.Mom is hoping for a nice quiet day here tomorrow but that ain't gonna happen.Mom is thinking of taking me to the vet and she'll call the vet on Monday,she's going to go back to Dr.Morgan in Brewster,Dr.Blake is just so in it for the money and the last several times there between Mario and me Mom was so not happy with her.Mom is feeling a lump under my bad eye and close to my ear.She's getting frantic and doesn't want to wait too much longer.She is still keeping up with the saline which does seem to help clear my eye and makes me feel much better.
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 Kookie fister!Sending you vote#1,542!Give Elvis a big wing hug from all of us for his special day!Love always,Dixie

  not get upset.My blocked nare seems to be staying opened even if its just a little bit opened and she hasn't gotten anything yucky from any of them so far.When I lived with Mario and Peepers everything would be white on the backs of our cages and you could see the tiel dust in the air.Mom loved taking them outside all summer and spraying them til they were soaked and letting them dry off in the sunshine so most of the dust would stay outside and not get in the house again.I never saw such dusty feathers ever as those two!Mom should move her air purifier into our room where it will do the most good instead of sitting on the counter in the dining room where dad has it off because its too cold on him whenever he sits down to dinner!

  Hi Kookie
Mom and I are so happy that Kaji's Mom could help you with those horrid pop up ads and all that other stuff that I hear everybirdie is having trouble with on their computers!And I sure don't blame Aunt Tanya for cussing like that,it would be enough to make my Mom @##$%##@@!$$%%###also!Its bad enough we have the incessant cycling and the page not founds and error pages but those pop up ads and video's are really upsetting and frustrating!Its so good that Aunt Tanya is getting a bit of a break at work so she can breathe a little at least,she works so hard and is always doing something nice to help out someone and some birdie like me!She's my Angel and I really and truly love her so much and so does my Mom!Those frozen pipes are so scary and its so good that nothing burst like last winter there!Mom and I are praying that it stays warmer from now on and we don't get anymore of that horrid bone chilling weather.Mom finally had to cave and put all the thermostats on in the house,of course we all had our thermostat on since September.Mom sprayed the air around me today when the sun came out and I kind of liked it and didn't try to run away.I did give Mom a scare though early this morning.My dad came home from work and gave both me and Candida our snacks even though Mom was home busy making tuna noodle casserole for dinner tonight.
This morning dawned a bright sunny day with the highs of 41 the lows of 34 and right now we're at 34.When Mom went to check on us early this morning right after dad left for work she couldn't find me where I always sit on my soft flat porch perch.Mom panicked.(she always goes into our room in total darkness so as not to startle us or put that nasty bright light in our faces and eyes).She grabbed the mini flashlight she keeps hanging on the curtain holder next to our cages and found me on the bottom of my cage in the far corner in back.Mom grabbed me and checked me over and I was all right and took me with her to snuggle with her in the TV room on the couch.After that she brought me back to my cage and had to work harder at cleaning Candida's cage as she had everything chewed and shredded,her tray paper and the heavy white paper that Mom keeps her grate covered with so she doesn't get her head stuck in the grate again.The confetti mess was all over the floor,inside her cage and everywhere.After Mom got it all cleaned up and swept the floor and fed us our bean mix she started loading the car with recyclables and collected the trash for tomorrow and that will go in the car in the morning.Mom will be home with us all day today and she's going to be getting more clutter cleaned out and taken out of the house and organize more things,its such an ongoing thing and hopefully one day it will be all done.We are only too happy to have Mom home with us!I do believe that the saline solution is really starting to help me.Mom is giving it to me every chance she gets mostly in the late afternoon right now as she wants me to finish eating and

  sually means so much more than what they say.Mom is home with us all day so its going to be an uneventful day unless skin sis wants to take off with Mom some where.Mom really isn't in the mood for going out again.Skin sis just called and is coming down to bake with Mom.Now Mom will be busy for the rest of the day.I do hope we get to sample some of what they are baking.
Well,Skin sis came over and she and Mom spent the day baking again.They made Red Velvet Cookie Bars,sugar cookies,sprinkle cookies from cake mix,chocolate chip cookie bars,and for dinner Mom made a sloppy joe pizza and made the pizza crust with Bisquick.She used ground chicken instead of ground beef.Mom served dinner and then skin sis left at 6:30pm and Mom is finally back and now maybe we can get our notes done!Mom had to put hot compresses on my eye and she'll give me another hot compress later on and then get more drops in my eye that Aunt Tanya gave Mom.Mom misses your awesome Mom so much and can't wait for her call on Toosday!

  Hi Kookie
I do hope you and your wonderful Mom and dad and the whole flock had a wonderful New Year.How wonderful that you're getting new computers,what kind will you be getting?Its awful that they couldn't fix your old ones.Oh those Window's computers are a pain and Mom's old computer was a Window's and it was always breaking down with all the new programs you would have to get.Mom was so upset when she went to make you a new picture and couldn't find any of her pics she took of you and Aunt Janet,Uncle Bill,Aunt Tanya and Uncle Steve or any of the PP ones or the places that your sweet daddy took us around to!Why did all those pics disappear and not any of the others?Mom spent days going over all the pics in her computer and couldn't find any of them.She was so mad because she had some nice ones of you and your frothers and fisters too!Mom thinks it happened when her computer went in to be fixed or when the hard drive was replaced.Poor Aunt Jeanne Mom sure knows how she feels for sure!Mom and all of us can't thank you enough for burning us some discs!If Mom didn't put the few she has on our galleries she wouldn't have anything to show for our trip there!You had us both laughing and rolling on the floor when you pooped on your daddy's shirt and then after he changed you did it again!Mom and I can only imagine just what he said when you did that twice to him!We have been hearing about the pop ups and all the ads that take away from the blogging area and even the videos.Kaji's Mom is helping everyone get through that with Google Chrome but it sounds kind of confusing you have to learn how to work with that program or something and since we don't have any problems except for the incessant cycling and page not found or error page we're doing better than those having the pop up ad problems and the video's that play loud that can't be stopped.Old White Lace Bloomers is a bad girl taking a chomp outta sweet Aunt Tanya's finger like that!Now what fid wouldn't go crazy to get at a nice slice of cheese?Candida did that tonight at the dining table and went around to everyone's plates like Goldilocks and the three bears taking samples of the sloppy joe pizza that Mom made with the tons of mozzarella cheese on top.She'd get that cheese and stretch it all off the plate and hop like a sparrow across to the next dish after scarfing that down.Oh my sweet fister,please don't be plucking your pretty snow white feathers like that!
This morning is a bright and sunny morning with our highs for the day of 49,the lows of 30 and right now its 34 with a strong wind blowing.Mom woke us up and cleaned our cages and room and gave us our bean mix.Then she made dad's sandwiches for the week and a little eggstra as he may be working long hours on Tuesday when we're supposed to be getting snow here at least a good 3 inches or so.Hopefully the other crew will be up and there won't be any need to plow out the town but then you never know,we're supposed to get ocean effects snow and that u

  Hi Kookie
I sure have missed you so much and are hoping Aunt Tanya and you and your whole flock are doing all right!Mom and the family went out yesterday afternoon Chinese at Dynasty in Falmouth and everyone had a good meal there.Then they went back to Nana's and had a rum cake to celebrate all their birthdays together from the past year.We didn't get to go because it was cold and they had to hurry and get to the restaurant in time before the luncheon specials ended,but Mom came home and snuggled with us all night.New years Eve Mom was home all day and I even had a nice hatchday celebration with cornbread cake with all kinds of good things baked inside fruit and peas and corn.Did you get to celebrate New Year's with your sweet Momma and daddy?You should've seen all of us squished in Anthony's car and then Mom had the nerve to by two 24 packs of toilet paper and have that shoved in the car also.Dad was holding stuff in his lap and Mom was in the middle in the back seat.Glad we weren't there!Mom missed her visit with Aunt Tanya on NYE and since we haven't heard from you we are beginning to worry,please let us know if everything is all right with you and your flock and family!

  y as she really didn't get much of a birthday!From there they brought Mom home and Mom unpacked what she got and put everything away,and dad came home a few minutes later.Mom will make grilled cheese for dad for dinner and she came in and gave us our snack of animal crackers and cleaned our cages for the night.Now she is here and will be ours to snuggle with for the whole night and a good part of tomorrow as well.We had so much trouble with BC last night and it took over a half hour to get one blog done.We kept getting the incessant cycling,then the error page and the page not found.GRRRRRRH!

  Hi Kookie
How awful that Aunt Tanya had such a bad time at work having to deal with several inches of water in her lab from all that rain we had.These computers are so frustrating at times if not always.I sure do hope that they get to straighten out the mess at work with them and that cloud thing my Mom doesn't really understand.All Mom knows is she was so upset when she went to make you a new pic for NYE and found that all the pics she took while we were at Hotel Conurefornia are gone.Mom had them in her files and not a one was found,even the ones of PP are gone!Mom was so angry,why did all those pics go somewhere and not the others?She had some good ones of you too!Mom thinks it happened when dad took her computer to the computer dr and those got lost then!Mom is not very happy about that!Mom is going out NYE for an hour or two but she should be back close to 7:00pm.She doesn't want to miss your sweet Momma's phone call at all.
This morning was another dull,dark,dreary dismal day with no sun and cold,the highs for the day of 43 and right now its 39.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us our warm bean mix,then she got dressed and waited for skin sis to come pick her up to go to Hyannis.She was late getting here and when she got here she was with Nana and they made the first stop at Ocean State Job Lot where Nana got a 3 plug thing she needed and Mom got some disposable cutting boards.From there they walked next door to RiteAid and Mom got some marked down cookies for dad's lunches and Nana got some clearance items and then they walked next door to Marshalls and looked around but there wasn't anything there that they wanted.They were able to park in the handicap spots because Nana had her handicap placard with her which made it so much easier for Nana to not have to walk so far from the parking lot to the store.From there they went to Olive Garden for lunch but there wasn't a handicap spot to be had so they parked as close as they could.When they went inside the place was crowded with people waiting with the call buttons in their hands.They told Mom that it would be a 15-20minute wait but when Nana saw them taking people who just came in with the same number of people in their party she said lets leave.Nana couldn't wait around as it was hurting her to do so even sitting doesn't help,so they left and went to IHOP where no one was there and they got right in.Mom had the belgian waffles and two eggs and hash browns.Both skin sis and Nana had the Caramel pancakes and two eggs and hash browns.When they brought out the plates Mom only had half of the waffle on her plate.The pictures all showed the whole waffle and it looked like the waffle not only was just half but was really small!They decided not to go to the Mall as all the kids were out all over the place everywhere you went so they went to Stop&Shop in the Mills and Mom got some clearance items,cereal,pumpkin cake,and a rum cake to celebrate Nana's birthday with on New Years Da

  Nana had a coupon and both Mom and Nana looked at something to get and once they decided they went to cash out and were told the coupon was for Hot Diggity which is a dog store in Mashpee Commons.So Nana put everything back she was going to get and decided they didn't want to go to a dog store after all to go shopping for us fids for food.From there they went back to Nana's and as it was after 3:00pm Nana made them lunch of salad and tuna,then Mom went home as dad had called her at Nana's and told her he had to be in work at 3:00am Tuesday.We are expecting snow here tonight into tomorrow.So Mom came home and cleaned our cages,gave us our snack and got some fresh sandwiches made for dad's lunches tomorrow.Mom is getting his dinner ready so he can go to bed and then she'll have time to snuggle with us afterwards.

  Hi Kookie
Now that wasn't very nice that you were made to stay in the house and not go and help your sweet daddy drilling holes,you have a good beak for hole drilling and would've made an eggcellent helper!And what's with the too much dust?A Too can never have enough dust!Mom and I are so happy that Teal'c and Samantha enjoy Kallie's foraging cups,he loved getting his treats out of that thing and had it mastered so well!Mom is so happy that Samantha got to have something of Kallie's.Mom may have another one in our closet somewhere in the boxes there,someday when she has the time to go through everything she'll look for it and send it out to you.We are so happy that everyone really enjoyed all the things we sent you all!
This morning was a bright sunny morning but freezing cold.Our highs for the day were 33 the lows of 30 and right now its 30 degrees at 4:30pm.Mom got dad off to work and then she got us up,fed us and cleaned our cages and just when she thought she was going to have a quiet day at home catching up with the chores she didn't get to on the weekend,Nana called and wanted her to come and take her to the insurance company to reinsure her car for half a year as it was due at the end of this month.Then Nana told Mom to collect her trash and they would go to the dump as they never got there last week because of Christmas.So Mom collected all our trash and recyclables,they were overflowing,and forgot some stinky chicken trays she had put in the freezer to keep from stinking til she could go to the dump.Mom was going to take us with her but decided against it as it was way too cold.When Mom got to Nana's she brought a heavy chair that was in the bird room up to the loft area and she brought another little kids rocking chair upstairs also,then she lifted a 50lb bag of ice salt from her car that the guys never got out for her and put that on the side in the garage.Then she loaded all the trash and recyclables into Nana's car and between the two of them there were a lot of recyclables and trash.Mom drove to the Bank where Nana's car is insured and that was a wasted trip as they told Nana she had to call this number and they would do it for her over the phone.From there they drove to the dump but they got stuck in the rotary as there was a head on collision just as you exited into the road going to the dump.There were fire engines,police cars and ambulances and no one was going anywhere fast.they were letting one lane go at a time.Finally after a good half hour,Mom got to go to the dump and as the accident was on the road Mom had to get off to turn into the street for the dump she had to wait til someone would let her in.Mom emptied all the recyclables,then the trash and was it freezing and windy at the dump,she had to hang onto everything or it would go flying.Then they went to Stop&Shop where both Mom and Nana got some clearance items and Nana got some Aleve for her pains,from there they went to the pet store and saw an Amazon and a Congo African Grey.
