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 Cookie Thank you for Making me BOTD 7/31/11,12+13

I am a Cockatoo from Newton, NJ.

Kookie Bird, Nurse Cookie

8 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!.

Yeah!What's with our parronts eating all the great stuff and not even leaving us one little morsel to even sample! Oh there's nothing like taking a shower in the freezing cold and you're right about that,your poor Mom would've been a momsicle for sure with no heat on a day like today was!And its so good that your sweet daddy got the fire going again for you and put the heat on in your room too,Mom has never shut our heat off yet,usually she won't shut it off til after they get back from vacation as the fid sitter isn't here all day,but she will adjust the thermostat if she feels its either too hot or too cold!That sure is alot of work to fix up all the files and the pictures,well,there are just a million of them Mom still has to figure out how to make new files for each of us,she has done that but they all seem to be intergrating with each other.Oh your poor Mom having to work on Saturday!But at least you get another day of not having to go through all that torture!Now that would be something to hear and see,CUBird barking like a Rotweiler!I'd even stick around for that!Mom spent the day getting rid of all the messy paperwork that was all over the house,from the dining room table to the computer credenza,she put everything in folders so she could find it quickly and the rest she threw out that wasn't needed anymore!That brat Candida spent dinner time with dad again and she made Mom chase her when dinner was done,she is afraid to go into dads room and she just flutters by his door!Mom has to catch her and bring her into the bathroom so she can grab her and get her back to her cage,in the morning Mom has to keep her flying til she gets too tired and falls on the floor so Mom can get her back in the cage!
Wishing you a great day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses,my sweet fister!Love,always,your frother Dixie

Just look at you and your sweet daddy sharing that crackerjack bag!Mom and all of us just love it!We woke up to rain,it was raining all night heavy with the strong 50mph winds,then this morning as my dad was going off to work it started snowing!Mom couldn't believe her eyes!It wasn't much with the rain soaked ground but by 6:30 am it got heavier and the whole lawn and streets were covered!And was it cold too!In the 30's!Mom had to go out for her errand runs also so she got the car warmed up and wrapped me in my blanket and under her coat I went to Nana's to visit my cousin Trixie II while Nana and Mom did their thing.Oh did your wonderful Mom make my Mom feel sooo good last night and she always looks forward to her visits with your amazing and talented Mom!Mom is going to see if she can check out that Spohr's garden's and find out eggactly where it is!How awful to be always kept in winter mode and feeling like we are never going to get away from this torturous cold and snow!Mom and I think its so awesome that your sweet Momma won that turkey,did you know that a turkey crossed the main road right in front of Mom this afternoon?She was the first car in the line and stopped for him and the other car on the other side just whizzed right by him!The next car saw the turkey crossing and decided to stop and wait to see which way he would be going!That fire sure sounds comforting to me that your sweet dad made for you to get warm with! Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Loving you always and forever,and I'll be back tomorrow to spend more time with you!Love,Dixie

Those artists all sound like a bunch of stuck up snobs if you ask me and what's with this big deal of hailing from NYC that makes them so special to acquire all the eggshorbitant prices that they're asking for?That's just ridiculous!My Mom agrees with your sweet Mom,she thinks your awesome Mom has more credentials in her little finger than they all have in their one lame brain!
How awesome to get a free turkey!How did they ever do that?Did they win a drawing for it?Way to go and just think of all the turkey and BONES you'll be getting to chew on!Its been a dark,dismal,dreary,rainy day here too all day with the strong winds whipping out there again and Mom is hoping that they didn't wreck her flowers that are coming up in the garden!How awesome to be getting some breakfast leftovers,those are some of the best kind to have,eggspecially the eggs and toast!I can't wait to see you with the crackerjack bag and your sweet daddy! The two of you must look sooo cool together!Mom can't wait to see those books and devotionals and they both thank your awesome daddy! Mom just can't wait to have her visit with your amazing Mom tonight! Happy Toosday and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses to my fister! Love always,Dixie

How awesome that your sweet daddy is up and ambulatory and riding his bike again! I so hope that both your sweet Parronts had a greyt ride together and the weather was just perfect for them!I just can't believe what those artists and their businesses did to your sweet Mom and Dad giving them the run around like that!How dare that so called gentleman tells your Mom to get a dump tray for her beautiful artwork.What's that with giving them a deli to show their beautiful artwork in? I'm sure my Mom would've done the same thing if that was done to her!What an awful thing to go through and to be made to run all over the town like that!And me and Mom know that they can't be any kind of artists if they didn't welcome a fellow artist with open arms! How dare they act so snotty to someone who is so good at what they do!I'll bet they were just jealous because your sweet Mom's work went way beyond what they could do,she even had hers all framed with the proper framing that fit the picture perfectly! We will all gather round those artists and show them just what we think of them with our butt ends!We'll give them some artwork that they won't forget for a long time to come!Along with some mighty fine beak marks too in flesh!See how pretty that can be!Tell your sweet Mom to go to http://www.spohrgardens.org/directions.html to check out this pretty place that Mom would love to take them to in Falmouth!They will get to take lots of pictures of the birds,flowers etc!Its a nice warm day here,the temperature went up to 70 but the winds are really strong so you can barely feel the sun but at least it isn't cold out!Mom went out and took some pics of the flowers that are coming up in her garden before the rain kills them off tomorrow,we are supposed to get some heavy down pours for Tuesday night so they say.Mom is hoping to collect more things to send to your sweet Mom on Wednesday if nothing else comes up to interfere with her plans!
I agree with you on Rio 2! How upsetting it was to see a sweet little Too like you and Doo be made out to be such wicked villains! Now really do you believe that anyone can actually get it right these days?

Now I truly think that was nasty,the artist could've taken the time to get a portrait done for your sweet Parronts who went through all that trouble to get really dressed up and looking nice!Mom and all of us feel so bad that it was their special day and they didn't even get the one thing they wanted to do done,how hard was it for that artist to just take a moment to sketch out the portrait.Mom and I don't blame your sweet Mom for canceling the appointment for Tuesday and not go at all,the importance was of yesterday not several days later!And whats with the Too's in Rio being the bad guys?I know for myself that isn't so,just look at you and Doo is right!How can any of those two sweet faces and soft Too sounds you white love sponges make be looked at as a bad guy,you are white,not black!We had a nice sunny day here today and it was in the 60's but you'd never know it by how cold it felt outside!There was a slight breeze also so Mom didn't feel like going outside to prune the hydrangea or the rose bush.Skin sis spent the day here and both she and Mom made hot cinnamon rolls which I got to sample some of!Mom made Kicked Up Stuffed Garlic Bread for lunch and skin sis really loved that,you make garlic bread with Italian bread,spread the Essence mixture over the bread with Emeril's recipe for it,bake that in the oven and while that is toasting up you take a pan and put garlic,onions till they get carmelized,and then add the fresh green peppers and saute that til they are tender but still bright green,take the bread put that between the bread and put it back in the oven for 5 minutes and its ready to eat!She sent skin sis home with 5 of the cinnamon rolls and Dad ate everyone of them eggcept two!
Mom stayed with me all night long just to make sure I was going to be all right left alone in my cage,I wasn't eating this morning and she was worried but she took me out and let me stay on the big playgym floor in the dining room while she and skin sis were eating their lunch and then she put me in the acrylic cage to get the sunshine from the window there!After she took me back to my cage I began to eat again.Skin sis helped her dremmel Kallie's and Celine's beaks and Mom had a hard time with Kallie as he kept sticking his big tongue out on her and Mom was a wreck trying not to get him cut with the dremmel!

  then gave him a nice nip on his belly!And for doing all that you got lots of scritches!Candida missed having dinner with dad as Mom was busy doing 6 things at once,she didn't even get dinner,not that she needs any!Mom put your sweet Momma's and daddy's name in our special intentions book at church tonight when she went for prayers for another week of healing and peace from pain and the Msr grabbed her to pass out palms to all the people coming into church! Last week she was grabbed by the priest in skin sis's church to walk behind the cross at the stations,whats with this with Mom?

Mom was up and out of the house early today as skin bro came here by 9am to get her to take her to see the condo he wants to move into with his friend from elementary school.It was a beautiful place,with two levels,the two bedrooms with walk in closets upstairs and a full bathroom,a large living area downstairs with a rather small kitchen that's outdated,(1983)but it has a nice large window overlooking the kitchen sink,a huge basement and a nice deck!Plenty of closet space too!Nice landscaped area and right down the street from the stores,you can walk there!Mom came home and it was so warm here,in the 60's and the sun was just gorgeous,Mom decided to give us all a birdicure outside on the deck!So Mom took me first and did my beak,and I went into a seizure,she had to walk with me around the yard and show me all the things that are growing there,listen to the birds and I finally came out of it,I got to stay in my acrylic cage while she did my frothers and fisters nails,Mario threw up all over Mom which made the nail clippers slippery,she cut my nail and made me bleed because my nail is so crooked its hard to get at it and she didn't mean to cut it so close,so Mom was a big mess when she got done with us,and oh yeah,she had to preen Mario and Peepers,what dust came out of them and she had to pluck out Mario's broken tail feathers again,don't know what he does to his tail feathers,but pretty soon he's going to look like a duck!Then finally after dinner Mom got a hold of the Breeder friend of hers that she's been trying to contact for over a month now and he's been having big problems,the real estate people sold his house right from under him without putting in the contract it can't be sold until he has a place to live,his phone broke,he was out of commission for 8wks as he threw his back out and he's been living with his parents and friends and now he's renting this house he's in now!He has some red sunnies in and sold all his macaws even the YCM's.Mom is hoping to spend the day outside tomorrow and start some of her yard work,pruning the hydrangea bush,the rose bush and cleaning up her flower garden as all the flowers are starting to come up now!Is it your sweet Parronts anniversary today?Now we would've all been there to send them a nice Anniversary greeting!What a beautiful day for an anniversary too!Did they go somewhere special for their anniversary?Please wish them a very happy Anniversary from everyone here,Nana too!Mom never got on the puter today with everything she had to do and she wanted to get our birdicures done while the weather was warm and sunny and outside.Hopefully she won't be bugged by anyone tomorrow so she can be on the puter and send your sweet Mom the info!But I think skin sis is coming over in the morning and won't be leaving til late afternoon so here we go again trying to get our visits in!Mom was up til after 2am this morning to get most of everything done!That is so hilarious that you untied your daddy's sneakers and the

Mom was so worried that she missed your sweet Mom's call last night and thought that when she picked up an unknown caller it was your awesome Mom,she said hello and then she heard a click,like someone was hanging up in her ear!Then tonight the same thing happened,I think my Mom is totally losing it!Your poor sweet daddy,he is in our prayers 24/7!How awful for you and your poor sweet Mom to find him like that!I so hope that he's feeling better by now and Mom and all of us can surely understand what she must be going through with worry,and her with her eyes just done also!My Mom was out all day today and again I couldn't go with her as skin sis picked her up after she had her MRI done,she and Nana and Mom ran some errands and then dropped Mom off the same time that my dad came home so we got our afternoon snacks from Mom instead today!My bratty baby fister got to dine with daddy tonight as usual and Mom came and brought me out to dine with him and she chased me off the table,I grabbed a piece of meatloaf from dad's dish and Mom put me on the big play gym beside the dining room table to eat it in peace.That Candida loves to fly back and forth from the dining room to the kitchen,following Mom wherever she goes and as soon as dinner is done she goes to grab my dad so mom can't catch her and put her back in our room!Mom has to be crafty with her and once she has her on her hand has to run with her to the bathroom to catch her there before she takes off again!Mom will be looking forward to your sweet Momma's call tonight then!

How I wish I could've been there to watch you chase Petey like you do!Oh it really sounds like you were having the time of your life with both Parronts!You keep beating up your poor sweet Mom like that she's gonna lock you up for sure and not let you out again!I don't blame you for not wanting to be left out when you saw Doo get so much attention last night!Both Candida and Kallie do that to my Mom,Candida makes Mom chase her when its time for her to go back to her cage,she tries to snuggle up to Dad for protection,she got to dine with him again tonight as always!She even ate some of the meatballs from the french bread pizza that Mom made for him,even eating the bread part of it too!Won't eat for Mom but with dad its okay!My Mom agrees with your sweet Mom,can't wait til the weather gets better and we all can go for a stroller ride with her!Only this year I won't be able to ride on the handle with Kallie,she'll have to find a way I can sit inside the stroller safely without getting hurt!I can no longer hold onto anything,I even fall out of my blankie and I won't snuggle in the little carrier Mom made for me!Mom has a bike she can ride,she hasn't been on a bike in years and tried last summer but couldn't get it together but maybe dad will pump air in the tires and she can try again this time!There are lots of places to ride bikes here,from Harwich to Dennis and beyond!Its just sooo good to hear how wonderful your sweet Mom is doing and healing each and every day!Mom put her name in the special intentions book at church again tonight when they went for another full week of healing prayers for comfort and peace!We woke up to a bright sunny day here with temps in the low 50's but the wind made it feel colder as usual,and then there were the clouds in and out too!When Mom left for church she forgot to put Kallie back in his cage and he had free reign throughout the whole house as she never shut our door either!Mom almost had a heart attack when they drove into the driveway and saw him sitting in our window swing watching!Please give Aunt Jeanne a warm hug from all of us here and to send one over to Angel too!

I sure know what your sweet Mom feels like!Its been a really long day for my Mom here today and she's aching from helping skin bro with that heavy hot water heater yesterday!Mom was out all day again today running errands and paying more bills!Nana got Trixie II a toy for her Hatchday today and both Mom and Nana got some groceries they needed,Mom came home at a half ways decent hour today and my frothers and fisters were all so happy to see her home!I got to go with her though and had a nice visit with my cousin TrixieII.
It started off as a bright sunny day here close to 45 and then by the afternoon the sun disappeared and it kept looking like it was going to rain all afternoon,which it hasn't just yet!
I'm wishing you a greyt night and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses my sweet fister!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

Mom will have to go back to the treadmill on Sunday's though because they don't have any classes on the weekends,maybe on Saturday,Mom is interested in the Pilates class that she watched while she was waiting to get into the Zumba class,it looked doable but she's such a clutz in the Zumba class and can't keep up with all the dance moves they twist and turn so fast and she was embarrassed because even the guys were really good at it!Now that's saying something isn't it?Oh I just love those off the shoulder fashions they have these days and what better way to get it than to have a fid produced original item at little or no cost to the recipient?And the poop on the sweater thing now depending on the pellets and fruit and veggies that one eats you can have the most amazing colors along with the design,can't get something like that just anywhere and as you say it always comes out in the wash!So if one doesn't like the first design,a second one could be the charm!We had a nice sunny day here with temps at 48,there was a wind but enough to make it cold but if you stood in the sun you could feel the warmth from the sunshine!Its supposed to be colder tomorrow! Mom was out nearly all late morning and most of the afternoon trying to help skin bro move a big hot water heater onto his trailer in our driveway!What a job of trying to get that thing in the right position and skin bro had to push it with his truck a little to get it to move so he could get it between the trees and the trailer to the back of the trailer to get it up the ramp and he and Mom worked at it and finally got it in!They both had to roll it up the incline of the trailer gate and then get it turned a little more to fit in with the 2 washers,1 dryer,a dishwasher,1 very large refrigerator,32 inch tv,aluminum ladder,ice cream maker etc!Now our driveway looks like a junk shop!
If you need help to protect your daddy you just let me know,I'll come and help you for sure!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses to my fister,love your frother,Dixie

Of course I'll save you some,Mom even made it this time with salsa instead of regular sauce!She loves it best with peach mango salsa the chunky kind!Mom gets the zuc lately on the markdown tables,she got a whole mess of it a few weeks back and made chocolate zuc bread,zuch pizza and another recipe with it!Oh puleeeeeze!You tell your sweet Momma not to listen to those idiots,your sweet amazing miracle Mom survived a brain tumor,no one can do that and live to tell about it,and a kidney sugery,this will be nothing and she'll come out on top like she always does,our prayers are always there with her,she's got her whole family here praying non stop day after day,and Mom keeps putting her name in the special intentions book at church,she's going to keep her eyesight,she's got all of you to look after!You tell her that we believe in her and not to listen to those jerks who don't know your wonderful Momma at all!Your silly Mom wearing those treacherous heels to work again when her ankle is probably still so sore,I do think you should bite those toes HARD to make sure she won't be wearing those heels again for a long long time!We don't need her hurting herself again!She does a good job that will last a year as it is!Oh Cookie you had me and Mom laughing so hard what you did to your poor sweet daddy's sweater!Now maybe you thought that the design just wasn't working for him so you made him your own artistic makings on his sweater! Do I ever know what you mean about our frothers having to wait to get out of the cage,Candida just loves to make Mom chase her now and Mom can't have that when she's got to get outta the house fast!This is something new with her!She don't wanna go back inside and eat her breakfast!
Mom had her first Zumba class today and really enjoyed it!She is so uncoordinated and really couldn't do all the dance steps properly and there were even some men in the class,an older one and some younger ones,she felt so funny flailing her arms and legs around and not keeping up with the fast pace of things but everyone was really nice and told her she was doing really well!Then Mom went to run her errands with Nana and skin sis and pay some bills and our cousin Trixie II's Hatchday is today,she's two years old,Nana wanted to get her something for her Hatch day and couldn't find anything so she is going to get her something on Friday when they go out!I never got to go with her today but I will be going on Friday,Mom didn't get home til after 7 tonight so she's just now trying to catch up with all of our blogs.She had to get the groceries put away,us cleaned and fed and my dad his dinner,its been a really long day!
We had a dreary start to the day but again as usual late in the day the sun came out but it was still too cold here for us to be outside!Silly Mom who threw the old calendar out before she transferred all the data from it to the new calendar!We are sooo looking forward to being with your sweet Mom and Daddy for a whole week!Mom says that

OOOOHHH! You just missed having one wonderful toe party with your sweet Mom's feet!I just can't believe that its only 2 months from now that we'll be having our big party together while our parronts have their get together and fun week!Mom and all of us here have been praying so hard for your wonderful Mom's eyes to heal properly and with no problems!I'll bet that Josh just can't wait to get to those goggles and just take off with them and run with them and manufacture his very own designs in them!Was it surprising to see Doo up there in the spotlight this morning!He must be strutting his stuff all over the place today with that crown on his sweet head!It was an awful dark day today and then this afternoon the sun came out really awesome,we haven't seen it in days now and its really not too bad outside either with 43 degrees!Mom brought me up to my acrylic cage in the TV room so I can enjoy some of the rays coming in from the window,she still says that's its not warm enough for me to be out there just yet!When will it ever be warm enough for me!Its been too long already!Mom was busy making Zuc Pizza today and trying to make something for dad for dessert tonight,she has run out of things for him to eat and she just can't decide on what to make for his sweet tooth!So far it looks like our crocus's survived the awful snow the other day and the heavy rain!We are hoping to see the rest of our flowers coming up!
Candida is so fresh these days,once she comes out of the cage for Mom to clean it every morning she just won't go back inside and Kallie has to sit and wait til Mom gets her eggcercise and chase her around the house til she can catch her!I do believe that she needs you and Doo to come here and teach her a lesson!Jeez,you should hear Kallie yelling and ripping his paper because he's made to wait for his breakfast every morning!
Happy April Fool's Day and I'm wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Loving you always and forever my sweet fister,Dixie

I would just love for you all to come here and visit with us!Can you imagine the fun we could have together just hanging out together? I will definitely gather all my flock and come party there with you for the week!What mischief we can get into!I think that is just awesome that you are all getting out of your cages again!Candida has become one little brat!Whenever Mom does our room service in the morning Candida pops herself out and takes off to the window swing and then she flies to the playgym and when Mom tries to get her back in her cage where she placed her warm bean mix she flies out to the dining room and refuses to let Mom catch her,she won't come to Mom either and she does come when she's called!She made Mom late Friday getting out as she avoided the net that Mom tried to catch her in,she kept trying to get to dad after dinner tonight(she had dinner with him as usual)and wanted to follow him into his room but Mom wanted her to stay in her cage til she got the dishes done,so Mom got her eggcercise chasing Candi back to her cage!Its so good to hear that your sweet Mom is doing better with her eyes and that no birdie was freaked out with the goggles she has to wear around you all!I love how Josh came down from his cage and went over to you and your sweet Mom but thought better of it when he saw you there!Your poor Mom still is hurting from that bad fall she had last week!Mom and Nana have and all of us have been praying that she will be feeling better soon from that fall,this weather has got to leave us alone!Its just not right to be going into April tomorrow and still be in the snow and rain of winter! This wind is just awful,we even lost our power today!This is our fourth day of dark dismal and rain and then today we had pouring rain and then when that stopped we had heavy snowfall!I wish that the weather would see that its going to be April tomorrow and we need to be getting the warm sunshine again and to see the flowers grow and the grass!It's time for the Spring to get here and fast!Please give your amazing Mom a warm hug from my Mom and Nana and we all send you and everyone there all our love along with warm wing hugs and soft beakie kisses from everyone here! Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hi Cookie!
I apologize for missing the milonga on Sat. nite, I heard it was greyt! We tried for 2 hours to get on BC but it refused to let us enter! Every time we logged in, it just went back to the log in page again! Last nite we finally got on after an hour but it was really slow.
I brought you a necklace and earrings from the pirate treasure hunt. You can pick them up on my page if you like them. I thought you'd look extra special beautiful wearing that set.
We've had a busy morning here! Dad left for his bike ride and mom was sleeping but she woke up about 10 min. after dad left becos he didn't lock my cage doors and I was out and taking my cage apart and dropping parts on the floor! Then she heard the guest bird squawking and dad left his cage open and he'd fallen on the floor and was also asking for food! Wow! Always something happening around here. And I was hoping to have the morning to run around the living room and find some things to chew! I have to learn to be much quieter so mom doesn't find me out! hehehe!
Have a fun week!
Love you forever, your Picabo

You don't have to thank me for bringing you with me to the Milonga,I wouldn't dream of not having you and the whole awesome Stark flock with me and having fun!You are all my frothers and fisters and I want you there with me!I do hope that you got that green jello off your sweet white feathers if you didn't you'll look like a bigger version of me!I can't thank you for letting me stay on your shoulder while we went apple dunking,with your strong beak we couldn't miss getting an apple!I think you brought me some good luck,was I ever so surprised to win the candy jar,I sure do hope you had some,what good is winning something when you can't share it with your fisters and frothers and friends?Mom was so upset because every birdie kept talking about Ceasaur and Mom and I thought it was Aunt Theresa's Ceasaur and when Chyna told me it was Meiko's frother it was shocking,we don't even know what happened,Cookie the Quaker says she thinks its an embolism! He was quite young from what I've been hearing only 7,that's just sooo sad!Poor Aunt Cindy having to lose two fids so close like that!She can't be blaming herself!How was she to know what was going to be happening?I agree with you that I don't like it either that God is calling all these sweet fids back including Starbuck!How awesome!Angel is a boy and he's healthy!Such good news there!Is Aunt Jeanne going to keep his name as Angel or is she going to change it though Angel can be both boy and girl!My cousin Trixie II will be two years old on Wednesday,and Nana want's to get her a hatchday present!Can't believe its been that long!And Candida is definitely a daddy's girl,she wants to be with him constantly now and will give Mom a hard time trying to catch her and get her back in her cage everytime she cleans us up!
I want to thank you sooo much for all of you coming with us to the Milonga! You made our night so perfect! Please give your wonderful Mom a big hug from my Mom and Nana and we send you all our love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses! Loving you always and forever,your frother,Dixie

We are all coming to pick you all up to take you to the Milonga with us so your sweet Mom can rest her eyes and get better fast.In fact you can come with me right now so we can get a good seat together!
Our mailbox has been smashed and shaving creamed and egged on Halloween,and my dad is getting so sick of it having to keep on fixing it!I think its so awesome that your daddy got to fix it so no one can get it down again!Its another dark day here and raining,and its going to rain right through the whole weekend!Well I guess I should be happy that its not snow,at least you don't have to shovel the snow!
Everybirdie got their raincoats on and boots?We're off to an Irish/Spring Milonga for a night full of fun and festivities! Loving you always and forever and sending you warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses,Love Dixie

We got our power back just in time before all of us were frozen solid!It sure got so cold in the house so fast,28 degrees and the wind kept going through every crack and opening it could find!My daddy was gone from 11:00 on Tuesday and didn't get home til after 7:30 Wednesday night and he had dinner and went to bed. Then Thursday he took a half day personal day to put up our mailbox that someone knocked down! He spent all afternoon out there digging in the frozen ground and had to come in the house to get an ibruprofen as his back was hurting him from all that digging!My skin sis is making all these pics for us!I don't think that I would like to see my Mom in those googly eyes either! Candida drove my Mom crazy this morning and then she was dining with dad tonight and she refused to come to Mom,she kept trying to get to my dad,landing on his shoulder,snuggling with her feathered butt on his arm,hiding under his arm while he was eating!This morning she kept flying from the window swing to the toy hook on the playgym,back and forth whenever Mom tried to get her to step up on her finger.Mom went out to the kitchen and brought the net in and she couldn't even catch Candi in that,she's too crafty,so Mom kept trying to make her keep flying around and around the bird room til she got so out of breath so she could get her to come back to her cage but instead she flew to the ground as she was tired and Mom got her that way!She made Mom late getting out this morning!She's really becoming a brat,she was under my snuggle blanket and she kept trying to shove me around and bite me!Mom put her in her basket on the coffee table so now I can snuggle with Mom without getting bothered!
Loving you always and forever,my sweet Cookie and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses! Love forever,Dixie

I told Mom that you deserve to be on the cover of a famous Magazine as you are so beautiful and sweet!So she told skin sis and now has her busy getting one for Carter and Captain Darling too! I don't want Carter to get upset or have her beak get out of sorts either!We are so happy to hear that your sweet wonderful Momma is feeling a bit better to do some typing for you!And that was so good of Doo to know that it was your sweet Momma there giving him kisses and hugs and not getting freaked out from the goggles!Mom and Nana and all of us here will never stop sending healing and comforting prayers your sweet Momma's way!We all are always here should she ever need us for any reason at all!She is our family after all!And family cares for one another!Just think that after all this is done,your sweet Momma will be able to have a good time here on the beaches and taking lots of pics of our seaside town!Yesterday was a nightmare for Mom! She was doing room service in our room and too busy cleaning our cages and the floor,she hadn't put our radio on just yet and heard a faint phone ringing and she couldn't understand why it sounded so far away,she went running out to the dining room and the cordless phone was dead,so she ran into the tv room to the landline and looked up at the tv and clock there and there was nothing,the power had gone out and she never knew it!The wind was whipping outside and all you could see was a big white cloud,the tall trees were bending down really low in the wind and did it get cold so fast in the house! Mom quickly finished our cleaning and promptly shut the door to keep the heat inside!The winds were blowing at over 65mph and she grabbed our blankets and took the scarf she bought at Christmas Tree shop for 50 cents and made a little pocket on each side to put us all into!Her hands were freezing and she managed to get it sewed but when she put her coat on over her sweatshirt and get us all in the pockets none of us would stay inside,we all kept coming out and going in 6 different directions!How frustrating to Mom trying to keep us warm!So she promptly brought us back to our cages and shut the door,praying we wouldn't get any colder and that our power would come back on.She kept calling NStar and they had no info yet,they called her back several hours later and said power would be back by 1pm.It was 28 degrees in our house by noontime.The snow was plastered against our windows so we couldn't see outside,but there was nothing to see anyway with all that white cloud of blizzardry snow,and we were in an actual blizzard!Mom was so frozen and she was so happy when the power finally came back on,then she had to play with the clocks,vcr,coffee maker etc all over again!Dad never got to come home til after 7 last night!He had some dinner and then went to bed for the rest of the night!Loving you always and forever,and sending you warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and special wing hugs and beakie kisses for my Aunt Tanya to feel bette

  Hi Cookie
This is just so frustrating with these stupid Noreasters and blizzards and it seems like we here on the Cape are the ones who have been getting hit with them the most this winter!Who lied and told us it was Spring!Mom is hoping that we don't get those winds of 50-60 mph as those are what seems to knock the power out and Mom is so afraid of the tiels and Celine getting cold as she can only hold three of us under her coat,wrapped up in blankets.
Our prayers are 24/7 with your sweet Mom on Thursday so she will have a greyt checkup and you can begin to get near her again!You must miss her something awful,I know I would be missing my Mom!Its so good that you get time with your sweet dad and get some lovin and scritches from him,that's so very important!How nice for Josh to be good for your sweet daddy and go back to his cage without a problem! Mom went out to our flower garden and took pictures of the teeny tiny crocus buds that were popping up from under all the leaves that were covering them in the garden,by tomorrow they will be all dead and frozen with the heavy wet snow!How sad,we are finally getting some precious signs of spring only to have it perish in the ice and snow and wind!
We are having a nice sunny day here with temps of 36 degrees and it doesn't feel like we're going to be getting a Noreaster in a short several hours from now!My dad has already been told he'll be coming into work at midnight so when he gets home he's going to eat dinner,shower and go to bed,Mom will be getting all his lunches ready to be packed,and everything else she can squeeze in his lunch box for goodies to last him the whole night and most of the next day.Skin bro and all of us so appreciate all the prayers you are sending his way to get the UPS job!That lock down sure does bite,I sure hate having to be waiting all day for my Mom to get to me to let me out!She's still in the process of making me a birdie carrier so I can be with her whenever she travels through the house and does her chores!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses! Loving you always and forever,Dixie

Thanks so much for the hatchday wishes:) I did have a nice day and mom had a special toy made just for me for my hatchday. If you are on Facebook, go to Thingsforwings and check it out as it is on her facebook page! We have not gotten it in the mail yet. I also got a huge coconut husk toy and I have been chewing a bit on it. I did get a small bit of birdy bread too and it sure was good:) As for our trip to Kelowna, everything went well, the roads were great and I have a clean bill of health;) It is just maintenance on my diet now. I can have a wee bit of millet for training too! Mom had to laugh when she went to get me in the morning from the vets....there was a note on my kennel that said, "I bite". Mom was surprised and asked the ladies and they said that I would bite them. hehehehehe. All is fair in love and war:) I said, "I love you!' for the first 45 mins of the way home too! LOL! I was so glad to be outta there! I am glad to be home now too:) One of mom's friends gave me some hoodies for my hatchday so I am training to wear them. I think that will take a while...LOL! HOpe you have a good evening;)

hugs,

Chicklet...sure hope mom is feeling better that sounds awful with her poor eye!

My Mom was out to the gym this morning with skin sis and then they came back and skin sis did her laundry here along with Mom and then she took a bath as she only has a shower in her apartment.Mom did a little sewing for dad's things and made lots of Pnut butter and jelly sandwiches for dad as he's heading back to work tomorrow after having the week off and Mom made sure he has enough things for his lunch box as we are eggspecting a noreaster on Tuesday/Wednesday and we may not see him on Tuesday night as its his turn to be up!Then skin bro came over and Mom had to give him a haircut as he's hoping to land a job for UPS and the interview is 7:30 tomorrow morning!We are all hoping he gets it as he's been out of work for a year now!Mom cleaned our cages and gave us all a shower and none of us wanted it and we kept trying to hide or get away from Mom!We love being showered outside on the deck in the sunshine!Mom never got to do our blogs earlier so now she's just starting at 7:30pm.Her day was filled with chores,gym and the skin sibs!And that little brat Candida is getting all of dad's attention every night at the dinner table with him,she even had some mac and cheese with him tonight,and shared his milk,and then she climbed up on his head and gave him a good preening then got down on his shoulder and snuggled up close to him and started talking words in his ear,she has him laughing,smiling and he even gets to pet her,she loves to put her feathered butt on his arm and she loves to hop around the table just like you would Cookie!Mom won't let me out when she's busy because she's afraid I'll fall and get really hurt again so I'm stuck waiting for her to come and get me when everything is all done for the day!Kallie was a real ogre today,he came dive bombing skin sis,flew onto Mom's shoulder and nearly got her on the cheek and Mom went to shake him off her and he pierced her thumb and she was bleeding all over the place for the longest time!Mom doesn't want to cage him all day but if his birditude doesn't change fast he's not going to be able to be free flighted anymore till he gets his act together!
Its so good that you can still get time with your sweet daddy and get lots of cuddle time with him!Mom has been trying to work with Kallie for a long time now,dad lets him out everyday while Mom is gone and he gives him snacks as he does all of us but with Kallie's bad birditude she doesn't trust him to behave himself with dad!Kallie has never been so bad!Mom can't believe it!
Mom and I feel so bad for your frothers and fisters that have to be locked up but your sweet Mom's eyes are sooo very important and they must heal properly so she can see clearly again!We have to take good care of your sweet Mom!Mom keeps putting her name in our special intention book at church for healing and comfort.

It was a bright sunny day here and it got up to 50 but it sure didn't feel like it with the wind blowing,it felt more like 30!And now we're supposed to get a NorEaster on Tuesday/Wednesday and there goes my dad as its his turn to be up and Mom is going to be busy with making up more pnut butter and jelly sandwiches and make sure the coffee is all set up and the thermoses are ready to be filled!What a pain in the tail feathers,we're supposed to be enjoying the incoming warm weather and warm sunshine and being able to go out on the deck or going for walks in the stroller,not back to freezing and shoveling snow,this is supposed to be Spring after all!
Nana is so happy that your sweet daddy liked the card she sent him!She apologizes for it being so late,she had thought that she had sent it out last week and it was still sitting on the to go out mail!
Mom has got to get on FB and see all the neat pics your sweet Mom has up for all the fid species of the week!
Jeez!She hasn't even had time to go and check out little Angels new page! I agree with you its really greyt that we have ToosDay's! What a greyt way to honor my favorite fister!Please give your sweet Mom a warm hug from me and and my Mom too!Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!

Mom was out all day today and I went with her to Nana's and stayed with my cousin Trixie II while they went out and ran errands and went to the dump!Mom got home really late and by the time she got dinner for dad and us and everything put away she didn't get to start on our visits til near nine pm!
It's so good to hear that your sweet Mom is doing better and she has the shield to protect her eye!Our prayers have been with her non stop and Mom is going to put her name back in our special intentions book when she goes to church tomorrow for another full week of prayers for healing and comfort!It was freezing here today so different from the beautiful spring day we had yesterday!Mom had skin sis make a pic of you on the cover of People Magazine and she will try to send it to you and hope that she can open it if not she'll post it in my gallery so you can steal it from there!We are all so thrilled to see Baldrick as our king,and he and Celine make the sweetest couple!Please take good care of your precious Momma!Give her all our love and warm hugs too!

We are just so thrilled that Baldrick made it to the Castle and got to be BOTD!What a handsome thing he is too and Celine was sooo happy to see him in the Castle!Oh your poor sweet Mom having to undergo more suturing again,I so hope they got it right this time!Our prayers are non stop for her throughout this whole thing!We are so hoping that she is relaxing and getting alot of resting so that she can heal without any problems!She's been waiting sooo long for this to happen!How awesome for your daddy to take care of feeding and watering you all!He sounds like my daddy,letting you out so you won't go stir crazy in that cage!Now that's good that the goggles didn't come out yet,Kallie just hates those things and if Mom is wearing them he tries to attack her and won't do as he's told!You all take good care of your sweet Momma and make sure she is resting comfortable so she can heal properly with no problems!We are sending her all our love and prayers for healing and comfort!
I ate good today and had my meds and was quite feisty and playful with my Mom today,she was never so surprised and delighted at my playfulness!
It was such a nice day today with lots of sunshine and 52 degrees and Mom went out on the deck to check out how nice it felt and it was almost warm out there! Now if only this weather will continue and the days start getting warmer so we can all go back outside again and feel the sunshine on our backs and feathers!

Thanks for the prayers:) Mmmmmmm almonds! That is the nice thing about BC....there are no diets and I am free to eat all the almonds I want! Tomorrow is my 19th hatchday. Actually, I hatched right around midnight so the breeder did not know if it was the 20th or the 21st that I hatched! Mom always thought it was the 20th:) We sort of celebrate both days, but my vet appointment is on the 21st. Ugh. Not looking forward to that, but I do love the ride out there! I like to travel:) Mom did get your email. That one of the gardens in Montreal is beautiful! Unreal! Some people are so skilled. Hope mom feels better from her eye surgery. That must be scary. Mom doesn't like things to do with the eyes...she is a wuss:) Hope you have a good evening;)

  Hi Cookie
We are all so relieved to know that your sweet wonderful Momma is home with you and resting,she sooo needs to stay comfortable and take it easy for a while at least!How awful to have to wait for everything to be ready this morning,it sure sounds like your poor Mom went through alot with all those sutures,we can just imagine how uncomfortable it must've been for your sweet Mom to have to sit there or lay there and have her eyes worked on like that!Mom,Nana,just everyone here kept praying and sending comforting healing prayers,her way every minute of the day!We are also praying for her wrist and ankle to heal,its bad enough that she has to go through getting the corneal transplant and try to heal from that and now she's got this eggsta with the wrists and ankle pain!I so hope that she takes this time and relaxes and maybe we'll all get to see that pirate photo with her treasure chest!
Mom left early this morning with skin sis after she cleaned our cages and fed us our bean mix breakfast and I wouldn't touch mine,and dad kept his eye on me all day as he was working on burning the branches and twigs from the yard and he told Mom that I finally decided to eat late in the day so he gave me an animal cracker for eating my whole meal!Mom met the trainer and that was something she didn't eggspect,there were several different tiers of payment plans with the different plans you could chose from along with how much money you were willing to spend!Skin sis couldn't afford to pay all that much eggstra,anywhere from $300-$1,200.00 every couple of months for a trainer and nutritionist! you get 48 gym visits with the $1,200.00 and can use it in any way you want,anywhere between 2x's a week,3,4x's etc,then there is the $300.00 every 2 months and you get about 40x's at the gym etc!All different plans with money involved!Mom says that she'll just put her Biggest Loser DVD in and start working out again with the weights like she used to!It was a bright sunny day here today,36 and a bit on the cold side again! Mom spent two hours in the gym working on the elliptical but she only lasted there for 15 minutes as they were really tall and Mom had to stretch up with her arms to work the arm parts of it and she could barely see over the machine to tell how she was doing so she and skin sis went back on the treadmill for the rest of the time there,Mom worked out at a speed of 4.0 and then brought it down to 3.6 as she really got tired from running on that elliptical.Then they picked up Nana and ran some errands at Trader Joes to get all us fids more bean mix that we like from there,as both Mom and Nana were running out of it.
Oh do we ever love nutriberries and now I can't eat them anymore!I get that same spiel from my Mom too,all the poor fids in the poor parts of the world have nothing to eat and they would love all our food!Oh did my Mom love her visit with your incredible Mom,she sure had a long day today with getting up sooo early!We are all sooo happy that she is fi

  HI COOKIE
Boo Boo places an ice bag on Coris head before todays speech. they both had a little too much st paddys day celebrating yesterday.

a very common superstition was that storks deliver newborn babies. this superstition was found amend europeans and even the sioux indians. the great flocks of storks flying north from africa at the beginning os spring created an association in peoples minds with fertility. also the considerable size of the stork could easily carry a newborn human. it was also believed that the storks caring nature extended to its own parents as well and in ancient rome there was a law requiring citizens to care for their elders known as lex ciconia, or stork law. it was believed that storks lived to a ripe old age and in china, storks were believed to carry the human soul, particularly those of brave soldiers up to heaven. in greece if a woman befriended a stork it would one day return and lay a jewel at her feet in token of affection. storks were thought to be very strict with their own babies and would often peck them until they bled but then could miraculously heal them instantly with a lick of their tongue. this is why the reddish pink marks found on newborns eyelids is often referred to as stork bites. farmers in europe felt storks brought good luck and would place platforms on their roofs for storks to nest. if the storks left the farmers roof it was considered bad luck. the stork represent duty and gratitude.

THANKYOU FOR YOUR VOTES.

love Cori and Boo Boo Campaign mgr)

Mom was going crazy trying to get me to eat and late in the afternoon yesterday she had an idea and mixed my bean mix and the meds with peanut butter so right now I'm eating it that way,I guess I was just getting tired of the baby food banana's that Mom always puts into our mix.Now Mom is hoping that this will make me happy and that I'll continue to eat!Your poor Mom falling like that again,right when she's going in for surgery!And she should've gone inside and taken care of her cuts and bruises,she must be in such pain today,her wrist alone must be killing her!We are praying that she didn't break anything and her ankle too?She will have our prayers even more so for healing from all that pain she is in right now!Now we are all really worried about her!Mom can't wait to visit with her tonight,she's going to have to think of some way to keep your sweet wonderful Momma safe until she gets her surgery tomorrow!Now if only Mom and I can come up there and help her out!We all know that she's working way to hard and needs a good rest,she just can't keep falling like that!It was so nice of Aunt Arlene to call her last night!Now if Mom would've known she would've called also!Please keep your amazing Mom from moving around today,sit on her if you have to,we want her to have the surgery without anything else happening to her!Keep those heating pads,cold packs and rubs close by and please give her lots of warm hugs and kisses from all of us here and tell her that we love her tooo much for her to keep taking these dives in the driveway like that!
Sending you all our love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses! Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hi Cookie
Mom is really getting frustrated with me as here it is another day and I'm still not eating my meds and bean mix!She was getting ready to get in her car and take me to Nana's when she thought she'd try mixing my bean mix with peanut butter,now I do like peanut butter but I wouldn't eat out of my dish so Mom took it all out of my dish and dumped it on the tray paper on the floor of my cage and I came over and started to eat,Mom standing beside my cage the whole time taking in all that I was eating!I left a few pieces of the bean mix but Mom is hoping I'll come back to it before she takes it out of my cage,Mom just hates it when I waste my meds like that!How awesome that Aunt Jeanne's new baby and our new fister will be having her own page,we will all have to come over and welcome her!Oh what joy to have a harness ordered to for her!Mom is just waiting to get the time to work with Candi and her new harness!Candi will fight Mom every step of the way on that one!Its good to hear that the wood is all stacked and that no parronts were injured in that activity!We are counting the days that your awesome Mom has her surgery,she is being surrounded here with prayers and love for a successful surgery!It was a dreary day out here today,cold and only 27 degrees and no sunshine at all!Mom is going to let me and Candida on the dining table tonight with her and dad to see if I'll eat anything there!I just might be having you come here and getting me to eat!Mom keeps dumping me on that scale,constantly checking to see if I lost any grams!Angel is such a sweet name,Mom's godchild had named her albino tiel Angel also!Now I'm wondering just what Mom is going to make for dinner so I will be interested in chowing down!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses! Loving you always and forever,Dixie
