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 is going to make the move and see if she can leave on Saturday morning with us,she's so slow getting up so early in the morning but she'll make it happen.My dad wants to make her happy and give her this vacation as she hasn't had one all year.I think Nana is really starting to miss Mom already,and won't go anywhere next week until she comes home.Mom and all of us can't wait for the cookout on Sunday to be with Aunt Mary,Aunt Jeanne and we can't wait to see what Candida is going to do when she gets her eyes on Angel!And to get to meet Janet and Bill,Princess and Cydney's parronts!Mom is just so down to the wire hoping to get everything together and done in time to leave for Saturday,she'll probably be out late celebrating Shiloh's birthday tomorrow night so Mom won't have much time when she gets home.Candida will have to wait for a hatchday party until later as the time just flew by so fast!Now that sounds so interesting what bird makes wine?I know there are geese that make wine!How wonderful to get two new toys!Oh I don't blame you for being so wary of those clear plastic discs but how can you be enticed to take the treat from it?Oh my,Aunt Tanya sure is fired up about something up at such a dark time in the morning like that!Please tell that awesome Momma of yours to not go crazy,its just us that's coming,and we aren't coming to make her work so hard!My dad wants to know if you have wifi so he can bring his(MOM's)tablet to play with!Dad always has to have his toys to play with you know!My dad can play on that thing for hours and hours.
This morning was a much cooler morning with our highs for the day of 78,the lows of 63 and right now its 77. We have bright sunshine here and it almost feels and smells like a cool fall day.Mom got us all up and as we slept with her last night she didn't have to do much in the way of cleaning our cages.Then she made out some bills to put in the mail and found her suitcases and started to get some things in that.Then my dad came home from working overnight and Mom got him something for breakfast after which he filled up the birdbath with fresh water and fed the wild birds and did a few other things before he went to bed.Mom clipped all of our nails and got some of our things ready to be packed for the trip.She cleaned the bathrooms and is thinking about what to get ready for dinner tonight.Other than that its a boring day here with nothing interesting going on.She video chatted with Skin bro and we are hoping to get out on the deck for some sunshine soon.

  Kookie dear we got the low-down on U-JL & Christy
...we are going to call you the Toy Destroyer, we understand you are very good at it! We are making a box of Angel Wings toys for you and your flock, have fun with them, but it will be a while yet, dad is very slow these days! It is happy Throwback Thursday once again, and for those who asked, dad's nurse visit went remarkably well once again, all his numbers were as good as a young man! It was announced that this is the start of Ragweed season, beware asthma sufferers! We will leave the doors shut for our Jenny, she is one of you! Dad put a small beef roast in the crock pot, they always make our home smell so good, and there will be carrots and potatoes for us parrots! Have a great day and give our love to all in your home, see ya tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny, Angel Christy, & our Dallas family

  Hi Kookie
Oh bad Petey to do a spite poop in the library on the floor like that!And on top of that CU Bird projectile pooping out the front of her condo!Poor Aunt Tanya up to her elbows in poop from one to the other of you!I guess a Mom just can't enjoy some time on the phone for a visit!That's just so wrong!Oh that would be so awesome if we could make it down for Saturday,we'd just love to meet Angel and we'd love to see Candida's face when she sees another one of her kind!I'll bet she'd love to see her Pineapple GCC cousin just like we all would!
This morning was a bright sunny morning,warm with the highs of 83,the lows of 64 and right now at 7:30pm its 73.The day was pleasant for a change,the damp wet floors from the humidity have all nearly dried up,the dew points are in the 60's tonight and there was a nice breeze today and tonight it was nearly cold.Mom got us all up early and cleaned our cages,fed us our bean mix and harnessed Dixie up and got him in our car seat.Mom and Dixie went to Nana's to meet skin sis there and when she came after Mom put Dixie in his cage in Nana's sunroom and fed him,they all got into skin sis's car and took off to Hyannis.They went to Shaw's grocery store so Mom could pay the EverSource bill,this was a big one from the winter from the budget system.No credits this year for Mom.Then they went to Dollar Tree where both Mom and Nana got a few things.Then from there they went to Yarmouth to go to DePalma's and Italian restaurant to have a pizza.When they got into the parking lot there were no cars there and it was after 1:30pm and right around lunch time,so Mom ran to the door and found it locked with no message about being closed,the only thing was they were opened for dinner at 4:00pm.They used to serve lunch there.From there they went back to Hyannis to RiteAid,then Ocean State Job Lots,then back to Mashpee to Asia,a Chinese restaurant that everyone likes.From there,they went to Marshall's where Mom went looking for flip flops for our dad,but they were completely sold out,the young man there told Mom she could get some ladies flip flops for dad but Mom said that just wouldn't work to have dad wear pink flip flops with sparkles etc!Then they went to Stop&Shop and all three of them got something that was on sale.Then from there they went back to Nana's and had something for dessert,Nana's apple crisp and then Mom got Dixie harnessed and ready to go home.She got everything unpacked she bought,got dad a leftover double hamburger from Sunday's grilling and some creamed corn and some cake that Nana sent home for him.Mom cleaned our cages and she took us all out on the deck to join dad for dinner,Mom was too full to eat anything more.What a pleasant night here,its almost cold and nice to walk on floors that aren't damp.Mom did the dishes and repacked dad's cooler lunch box to get him back off to work tonight for a second overnight shift.More long line painting to be done before school starts.We had a bad thunder and lightening

  Hi Kookie
My Mom is so slow to get her act together today also!I guess Monday was a really long day for her and she really didn't have much time to clean the house and its so hard with all this high humidity,she's a soaking mess running that hot vacuum and then the floors are so damp that the dirt sticks to the floors.When is this ever gonna stop?Mom still hasn't brought out the duffle bags to start packing,and our stuff has to be packed too!Food,treats,and the travel water bottles are still in her bag upstairs!She still needs to make out a card for the PO to hold her mail while she's gone.Maybe she'll get that tomorrow when she goes out.Oh now that beak pulling thing is not good for anybirdie to do.Take it from me you could lose more than a beakie doing that!Oh noooo!Not another birdie cure coming up.Mom is thinking of doing the same thing with us.She wants to get it done by Thursday as Saturday will be packing the car night and all the chaos will begin then with last minute packing and remembering what needs to be going with us!I'm so eggcited that I don't have to find those suitcases and pull out all the underwear and socks to keep them from going without me!Oh noooo not again to have Mandy coming to watch over you in October!Mom only wishes she could be there too then but she's not sure if she'll be able to make it,she's nervous enough leaving Nana behind as it is and hoping that Shiloh and Anthony will get there everyday at least.My Mom can't wait to visit with your amazing Momma tonight to finalize all these travel plans,Mom is just no good at organizing these things at all.Cookies Mom wants to know when we'll be there so she can drive down and visit with us!And Aunt Arlene wants to know when we'll be there so she can make some plans.Mom is such a wreck about all of this!Gotta get Mom to get those duffel bags down from the shelf now and start putting some things in them.

  Hi Kookie
This morning was a dark dreary morning to start with the temperatures were highs of 78 and the lows of 68,right now at 7:30pm its 73. Mom got us up fed us and cleaned our cages and swept our room and just as she was going to start vacuuming before it got too hot do to so,skin sis called and wanted her and Nana to go to lunch with her and to run some errands in Wareham.She had a coupon for LongHorn restaurant for a free dessert for her birthday and she wanted to go with Mom before Mom left on Sunday.So Nana called Mom after skin sis asked her and skin sis came and picked Mom up and then got Nana,it started to rain and then down pour as they went along and they crossed over the Bridge,there was quite a back up at the Bourne Bridge but they got over and the first stop was Gold World the jewelry store so Nana could get a battery in her watch,then they went to the pet shop there so Mom could look for travel size water bottles for our travel cages but she didn't find any there.From there they went to LongHorn and had lunch,Mom and Nana had strawberry chicken salad and grilled chicken and Nana had seafood chowder,Mom had chicken tortilla soup while skin sis got the parmesan encrusted chicken with a sweet potato and a salad.Then they had the Chocolate stampede cake and Mom was groaning when she got out of there.Then they went to JC Penney so skin sis could return some pants she got and from there they went to Petco where Mom found the travel size water bottles for our travel cages for our trip on Sunday.There was a Pineapple GCC there that looked like he was on steroids,he was so huge!Then they went to the Dollar Tree where Mom got some body wash and some ponytail holders and from there they went to drop Nana back home,then skin sis brought Mom home and when Mom got home she got dad some dinner,and cleaned our cages for the night,cleaned the dishes and put what she got away.Mom is so exhausted and hopes that she can get to stay home tomorrow so she can get something done in the house tomorrow and she needs to get the luggage out so she can start packing for our trip.Time is running out and Mom hasn't even gotten anything packed yet!Oh that Josh is so fresh cornering your sweet Momma like that and trying to come in for the kill!And then Baldrick and Charlie throwing the Beware of Attack Parrot sign to the floor!Now that was a good thing that your Momma found the Feather In spray bottle,Mom does that also looks everywhere on the floor and under everything.My Mom just can't wait to have her visit with your awesome Mom!

  Hi Kookie
Oh that's an old picture from last year,Nana grew that huge monster Zucchini,I think she had about 8 of them last year.Mom can only grow squash flowers that we get to eat!Oh did it ever seem like a very long day for you and that awesome Mom of yours!That really must've been so funny to watch all the silly hoomans trying to put up that white tent!Good thing Aunt Tanya stayed within the safety of the kitchen!I'll bet you had your tummies all full getting served all day long with all the wonderful grub that was being passed around there!You even got to come outside and sit with your daddy which was nice and I too would've found all those people boring also.Blue is just nasty going after your sweet Mama's boob like that!What does he think he's doing?Trying to breast feed on her?Not with that beak he don't!I sure do hope after that very long day that Aunt Tanya takes the whole day off and vegges out!That sure must've been so much hard work,with the prepping,baking,clean up and putting everything back to where it came from.We are all waiting for Shiloh to come down and do her laundry and Mom is hoping for a BBQ but this weather is so iffy and one minute it looks like its gonna dump rain,it was drizzling out there earlier,then the sun peaks out now and then.Its 73 out with the eggspected highs to be 77.Now if only things would dry up out there we may be able to go outside,never got to last night,the parronts and Shiloh ate their subway subs on the deck last night but it was really getting cold out there so Mom wouldn't let us out.Mom will have to get the suitcases out and start getting something packed as she doesn't have much time left now to procrastinate any longer.I have to get her up and moving or we'll never get to come and visit you all!

Oh poor Aunt Tanya going crazy with that church party today and having to clean up and get everything done and ready only to find that your sweet frothers Baldrick and Charlie made more of a mess for her to deal with the food and water bowls.Ohhh!What crafty conures they are to hide the spray device thingy that goes in the bottle to be sprayed with Feather In.Aunt Tanya doesn't need that mess to have to deal with on top of everything else she's gotta do to get the place ready for all the guests to show up!Oh does that salsa chicken in the casserole crockpot sound really beak watering good!Little Angel and I will just love getting the birdie bag from you that you bring tonight for us!Mom has that problem also as Shiloh is coming over for dinner tonight and we may not even get to the Milonga on time or be able to stay the whole time.Mom told Shiloh that she wasn't prepared to make a big dinner tonight and really didn't have much in the way of meats and stuff,left over macaroni and some veggies,so Shiloh said she'd bring some subs from subway.Well,at least Mom won't have many dishes to deal with for cleanup.That will make things faster for us to get to the Milonga I guess!I do hope that you wind up getting some dad time in.Don't you just hate it when you go to find your daddy or Mom and they're not there or even in the house but somewhere else?Mom is hoping for a BBQ tomorrow but it sure don't look that good right now!I sure do hope that your sweet daddy can have his BBQ tonight,its getting darker here and it looks like its gonna start dumping on us again.Whatever happened to the bright sunshine?Now I just hope that the chicken dish doesn't taste like conure!EWWWWWW!Oh as long as its aratinga,that Kallie is a big mouth along with Trixie!LOL!

  trimmer away,she harnessed up Dixie and got him back in his car seat to go home and once home she got dad dinner,got us all our snacks,and cleaned our cages out for the night.Then they went out to the deck to eat and we all got to come and join them and while we were out there it started to rain really lightly,you wouldn't even know it was raining unless you looked up and saw the rain coming down,it barely got the deck or the deck furniture wet.Mom couldn't get us out to catch the rain!

This morning was another warm morning with bright sunshine and the highs for the day are 82 the lows of 70 and right now at 7:00pm its 79.Mom got us all up early and cleaned our cages,fed us and swept our room,then she loaded all the trash and recyclables in the car and then got Dixie harnessed up and in the car seat.They made a stop at Aubuchon hardware to pick up the small bag of cement that Nana had wanted and the young man there was so happy to see Dixie,he even knew that Dixie was a conure and said he had always wanted one and after seeing Dixie up close he definitely will get one.But Mom told him to think hard about getting a fid because they live long lives and need all the care a child would need,he couldn't believe that Dixie was 22yrs old.Then they were off to Nana's where Mom loaded all the trash into Nana's car and recyclables and they took off for the dump,then Nana had wanted to go for breakfast so they headed off to Falmouth to Friendly's but because of getting stuck in all the slow moving traffic they were late for breakfast by a few minutes so they left to find another place that served breakfast,they went to DQ where in the same parking lot is a small place that serves breakfast but there were no spaces to put the car,the whole place was bombed,then Mom continued driving through Falmouth to Teaticket to Moon-a-Kiss Cafe and they had crowds waiting outside also but Mom found one space left to park and they went inside and didn't have to wait long,but they had to sit at the counter which was uncomfortable for both Nana and Mom as Mom couldn't reach the floor and had to half sit and half stand on the swivel chairs and after the food came it was so crowded that as they were on the end by the door,they kept getting bumped by the wait staff and the people who were leaving.Mom had a hard time trying to drink her coffee while getting bumped.Mom and Nana don't want to go there ever again,besides constantly getting bumped the place was so loud you couldn't hear the person next to you speaking!I think every tourist in the world was there!Kids,parents,uncles and aunts etc.From there Mom drove to the gas station where she pumped gas in Nana's car and got the store discount for $2.39 a gal,then Walgreens back to Mashpee and Nana got a few things she needed there and they went back to Nana's from there where Nana had made them an ice tea,and her Keurig wouldn't work.Its been a very frustrating day for Mom and Nana with everything going wrong.From no places to go and eat breakfast,no parking spaces,even at Walgreen's to the Keurig not wanting to work!After the iced tea and a piece of cake,Mom and Nana went out to chop up the tall hedges that were blocking the view of the street so Mom could see when she backed out.Mom took the hedge trimmer while Nana bagged the cuttings and was it ever so hot in the sun,Mom was soaked in sweat by the time she got done.Mom did the whole length of the front yard and after she rolled up the cord and put the hedge

How awesome for Uncle Dave to be working the farm markets,you sure can get some awesome fresh fruits and veggies there.Poor Mama Tanya,she has to be egghasted with just coming back from a trip and then having to go right back to work and have everything else to do.Then that big church party get together coming up.I love doing the same thing with my Mom,I just love rubbing my cheek on her hand and having her rub me all over,that brat bird Candida plucked me bald again just when my new feathers were coming in.Moggie sounds like Kallie,Kallie doesn't think he should be caged and he won't go back in either when Mom wants him to after he's been out all day.Poor Doo not being able to have his Doo Dance party for your amazing Mom last night!We too have our goodbye celebrations here for the tourons on all of our Bridges overhanging the expressway going to the Bridge!They all stand on the bridges and look down holding signs that say good bye.
This morning was a cloudy morning but by 9:00am the sun came out,the highs for the day will be 79 the lows will be 70 and right now its 81.Mom got us all up,fed and cleaned our cages and then decided to vacuum the house before it got too hot,then she made some red velvet cookie bars and has them in the oven and has some brownies ready to go in next.Mom is already sweating from the heat of the vacuum and the oven.Mom got the recyclables out to the garage and into the car and she's collected the trash and got most of that ready to be loaded into the car for tomorrows dump run.Then she has to get our dad's lunch ready for work tonight as he has to go back and work on more long line painting,so when he gets home at 4:00pm,it's dinner early and a shower and to bed for a few hours then back out to work at 9:00pm.Skin sis called and wanted to come over for dinner tonight but Mom told her it wouldn't be a good time as she'll be running all over the place trying to get things ready for my dad to go to work again.She'll be coming over again on Sunday.Mom is home with us all day again before she goes out tomorrow and even though she's busy,we are so happy to have her home with us.We are so hoping for some deck time later on but with everything going on for tonight that might not be happening.Yaaay!We finally got some deck time with the parronts and got to join them for dinner,we even had some bow tie macaroni for dinner with them!

Oh did my Mom just love her visit with your amazing Mom last night!It really made her day!Oh that Doo is so funny!I can't wait to see him do his Doo dance and hold that one wing up in the air like that!Oh and that's not very nice for Doo to bite your poor Momma like that on her elbow if she doesn't pay attention to him!I think that thing you do with your beak and jumping up and down is awesome,I'd really love to see that too!Such talent going on there!Mom has to get Kallie's pin feathers rendered also and he won't have anything to do with it!
This morning was a bright sunny and warm day again with the highs of 81 the lows of 68 and at 8:30pm its 75.Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and quickly swept our room,then she got Dixie harnessed and put in the car seat and Mom took off to Nana's and they got stuck in traffic that was so bad that Mom didn't get to do more than 20mph the whole way down,it took her nearly an hour and a half to go what usually takes Mom a 15minute drive.Nana was so worried as she kept trying to call Mom and when Mom walked in the door of Nana's house Nana was so relieved to see her,she was so worried that Mom got into an accident!The traffic is going to be really bad here for the next several weeks now.Mom set Dixie up in his cage there in the sun room and then Skin sis met Mom and Nana at Nana's house and they went to Hyannis.They went to the shoe store in Hyannis to return some sandals.Then from there they went to Yarmouth and had lunch at Riverway and Mom and Nana had schrod with green beans and mashed potatoes.Skin sis had chicken parmesan. From there they went to the Dollar Tree in Yarmouth,then from there they went to Marstons Mills to Aubouchan Hardware store so Nana could get some cement to fix her bird bath with.Then from there they went to Rite Aid.From there they went back to Nana's house where they all had a cold drink and some cookies and then Mom collected Dixie and she and skin sis left to go home.It took Mom over a half hour to get home.When Mom was in Rite Aid she had a really bad headache and she had bad cramps.Mom was happy to get home and still had her headache but had to call her Uncle Vito in Washington for Nana as Nana was so afraid of the fires and wanted to make sure he and his wife were all right.Mom finally got a hold of them and they were both fine and the fires weren't near them but were closer to their cabin up in the mountains there.Mom got dad his dinner and they ate out on the deck and we all got to go out and join them as it was much cooler by then.Mom and dad never came inside til well after 7:30pm.We had a good time being outside in the cooler air.Now that its nearly 9:00pm Mom is just starting our visits.

Mom is just using the stove top again tonight with more leftovers from the grill on Sunday,this time she's making chicken in Balsamic vinegar marinade with mashed potatoes in the marinade with peas and carrots.Its too hot and sweaty just cooking everything on the stove top,the veggies will go in the microwave.Mom does that to us too,keeps our door shut whenever she runs the ceiling fan in the tv room.We get really mad when we get the door shut on us like that,hopefully we'll be able to go out on the deck to join them for dinner tonight,its getting better out there now,not as bad as today was!Oh now that's a good thing to get your daddy to get some eggcercise by picking up Doo Poop on the floor he just cleaned!hehehehe!It must be so entertaining to watch the two of you doing your amorous dancing,that wing up in the air is very interesting!
This morning is another hot bright sunny day and the highs for the day will be 83 and with the lows of 69.Its 86 right now.Mom got us all up and fed us our bean mix,cleaned our cages and then swept up the floor as it was again too hot to run the vacuum.Mom is home with us again today and it will be another boring day for us as we won't be allowed to go outside any time during the day at least.We finally got to go outside and join our parronts for dinner last night when it cooled off enough for us to do so.Mom will be busy making more trash to take to the dump and cleaning out more things from the house,its such and ongoing job.
Mom can't wait to get her visit in with your sweet Momma she sure has missed her!

  Hi Kookie
This morning was another bright warm and sunny morning and as soon as Mom got dad off to work very early as usual,she did some quiet work around the house before she got us up at our usual time. The highs for today are 85 the lows of 70 but right now its 88 degrees and stifling with a dew point of 71.Its another day that we won't be going outside because of the heat.Mom cleaned our cages and fed us and swept our room as it's too hot to run the vacuum again.Mom will try to vacuum again later when it gets cooler if it ever does.We lost our power again this morning and Mom thought that it would be gone for a long time.But it came on again after a few minutes,just enough time to have to reset all the clocks and vcrs,coffee maker etc.What a pain in the tail feathers that is,and just when Mom got all her clocks almost in sync with one another from each room and now her VCR is off again after she got that programed to record on time.It seems our power goes off at least a few times during the week lately and its becoming so annoying to have to keep setting the clocks Mom can never get them all in sync with each other for days afterwards. Mom is home with us all day today and other than making more trash and cleaning up more clutter its going to be a very boring day,but we don't mind it at all as long as she's here with us!
We finally got to go outside and join Mom and dad for dinner as it was much cooler then.We got to have our snacks and a fruit bowl and watch all the wild birdies come and go from the bird bath that dad cleaned and filled up for them.Mom made a dinner of left over Italian sausages from the BBQ cut up mixed Italian veggies and rice with the sauce from the balsamic vinegar marinade.It was hot enough making that on the stove top but better than heating up the whole house with the oven!Mom can't wait for her visit with your awesome Momma tomorrow!Its so good that your sweet Momma didn't get stuck with all the fall out from the weekend,that just wouldn't be right or fair!

What wonderful news that your daddy came and got you and brought you outside to be with him!Now that's something to be dancing for!I just knew that those sweet Too eyes of yours would melt his heart for you again!Oh don't you just hate it when you have to share what you and your daddy have with a fibling?Candida steals my food right from under me and even rips it outta my beak!Blue isn't dumb,he wants to be outside in the fresh air and sunshine,just like us having to be jailed for a whole week with no outside time in at all!This morning was a bright sunny hot morning with the highs for the day of 84 the lows of 69 and at 5:00pm its 84.Mom got us up and fed us our bean mix,cleaned our cages and swept our room,then she gave my dad his breakfast and made his coffee and then started collecting more clutter from our bird room.As she was in the middle of cleaning Skin sis called and told her that she and Nana were coming over for the BBQ.Mom got the meats out to BBQ.Italian sausages,steak,three chicken halves,hamburgers,pork ribs, thin sliced steak and veal.Mom got them all in marinade of balsamic vinegar and got all the utensils out,rolls and condiments on the table on the deck.Nana and skin sis came in and Nana had brought some meat also for the grill and she brought a rum cake for dessert.A few minutes later skin bro came in the door.Then dad had the grill ready and Mom brought everything out and put it on the grill,skin sis helped get the dishes and Mom got the table set and served everyone.It was so hot outside even on the deck under the umbrella,Mom was sweating big time running back and forth from the grill to the deck.We weren't allowed to come outside as it was way too hot.Mom served the rum cake and cleaned up after everyone was done.Then everyone came inside as the sun over took the deck.Mom is tired now and couldn't wait to get in her shower.Everyone left around 3:30pm and Mom finished cleaning up the kitchen and got sandwiches made for dad's lunches for the week and then cleaned our cages for the night and gave us our snacks.Mom has plenty of leftovers for a nice meal for most of the week,skin sis took quite a bit home with her to have for her dinners.Mom never made it to the church BBQ,it was too hot to get into a hot car that would be baking in the hot sun filled parking lot!

Oh what a long day it must've been for your poor parronts.We all were so happy to have partied with you and of course we wanted to get the place cleaned up before Aunt Tanya noticed!Besides she'd be too tired to have to clean up after all of us right now!We are hoping that your sweet Momma gets some much needed sleep from all that traveling around today!
We woke up to bright sunshine and heat again.The highs for the day are 85 and the lows will be 67 and right now its 80 and very humid.Mom got us all up fed us and cleaned our cages and swept our room,she's not going to run that hot vacuum today to sweat even more!Then she got dad his breakfast and got his coffee going and then she started on cleaning out the pantry.She had been collecting all kinds of containers to use to give the skin sibs stuff to take home in whenever she made a meal or some dessert,they have been starting to overtake the pantry.She needs more boxes to get all the other stuff arranged out there so she can find things easily.So far both Mom and dad will be home with us all day and all day tomorrow as well.Dad is out there sweating mowing the lawn and getting it ready for our BBQ tomorrow.Mom will finish with the pantry and then she'll be starting in the spare room off the mud room to start cleaning that room out.There is so much to be done and so little time in which to do it in.And there is more than enough junk to get rid of in a house that keeps collecting over the years!We finally got to enjoy some time out on the deck and join our parronts for dinner.We got to have our snacks outside and squawk to the wild birds that came and went from the feeders and the birdbath.

  Hi Kookie
This morning was a bright warm sunny day with the highs for the day of 82,the lows of 65,and right now at 6:30pm its 77.Mom got us all up,fed us and cleaned our cages and quickly swept our room,then she went out to the sun room to check on the little sparrow and found that he had died sometime in early morning.Mom felt so bad as she tried everything she could to help her and make her feel comfortable and safe.Mom left her there and got all the trash and recyclables in the car to take to Nana's.Then she got Dixie and harnessed him up and put him in the car seat.Before they got to Nana's Mom stopped at Buddy's car repair shop which is right down Nana's street and got her car inspected.She took Dixie out with her while she waited for them to do the inspection and Buddy(the owner)was happy to see that Mom had brought Dixie with her.Then they went to Nana's which was just a few houses down the street.When Mom and Dixie got there Mom got Dixie set up in his cage in the sun room and then Mom loaded hers and Nana's trash and recyclables in Nana's car and after having some tea and a waffle,they went off to the dump.From there they went to the Pet Depot to see about ordering Trixie(our cousin Jenday)a cage.They have an Amazon and a CAG in the store and they were in the back of the store talking to one another in words.You could hear them both talking up a storm together all the way up front.Then Mom and Nana went to Stop&Shop so Nana could get some banana's but they bought a few more items,Mom got some small cake mixes to make cookies with.We can't wait to see those as they are bright yellow(lemon)bright red(red velvet)bright green and bright orange too.Then they went back to Nana's where Nana made them some lunch of salad and veggies and tuna and salsa.Well,the salsa was supposed to be mild and it was fire engine hot!They both had a small dish of ice cream to put the fire out.Nana cut up some fresh fruit for Dixie and Bella and Trixie.Then Nana got Trixie and Mom weighed her as Nana was afraid that Trixie was losing grams as she wasn't really eating that much.(She's so picky)!Trixie was fine at 117grams.It was too hot to do any yard work by the time they got back from their errands so after lunch they sat in the living room and watched a little TV before Nana made Mom go home to beat the traffic.It took Mom almost an hour just to get from here to there.When Mom got home,she put what little groceries she had away,cleaned Kallie and Candida's cages and gave them a snack.Then as she was getting ready to bury the little sparrow dad came home and he went out and dug the grave for her and Mom carefully wrapped her up and buried her by our frothers and fisters under the Hydrangea bush.It was still warm outside and sunny so Mom brought us all outside for some sunshine,no showers as it was too late and we all got to join them for dinner.Dad saw the hummingbird come by just as Mom went inside to finish bringing dinner out.Skin sis called Mom and told her she was c

This morning was a bright and cooler morning with little to no humidity,the highs for the day being 78 the lows of 62,its 75 right now.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and fed us then swept our room.She's going to vacuum it later on.Then she went to the sun room and took care of the little sparrow who was actually sitting up waiting for her breakfast!Mom filled her dish with more seeds.She sure does eat good.Dad has the window open out there for her to hear the outside birds like herself and to get her fresh air.Mom started collecting the trash to bring to the dump tomorrow and all our birdie trash brought out to the garage to pack in the car.Mom is hoping that she can get some things done today and that no one needs her for anything.Nana fell last night and Mom couldn't sleep all night just praying she didn't fall on her bad leg where she had the surgery,Mom wanted to go over there to help her but Nana said not to,Mom will be there tomorrow.So far its a boring day here with nothing eggciting going on,but that's all right because Mom is home with us all day and we may get some time out on the deck later on.Mom is thinking of baking some brownies later on as dad doesn't have anything to munch on after dinner for a snack!
Well,Mom never made the brownies and as soon as she got done with the chores she took us all outside for some sunshine and a shower.She even took the injured sparrow out with us and cleaned her cage out and let her sit on the deck rail so she could see all her family and kin out there.When Dad came home he helped Mom put a straw on her leg and tape it down,Mom was hoping that it would prevent her from holding her leg out behind her but it didn't.She did enjoy some sunshine and started eating again.When Mom brought us all inside (we enjoyed dinner time out there with them)she brought the sparrow back to the sunroom as it was time for the wild birds to start roosting.She seems to be much quieter now and doesn't struggle as much when Mom tries to clean her cage.
Nana is doing all right now but she is still so sore and in pain.The pain is up by her groin area which makes it hard for her to walk.Mom keeps telling her to wait till she can get there and help her!I just can't wait to have your sweet Parronts to come home again,Mom really misses her visits with your amazing Mom!And I so agree with you that flight is so important to us.Mom had to chop my flights off because I was getting my bad leg caught in my wings,they don't work anyway.I still can't fly even when I was fully flighted.I get to watch Kallie and Candida fly all over the house and I wish I was back flying with Kallie again,those were the days!Lets get this beach party off and running!I can't wait to squeeze in as many party days as we can!LOL!
BC gave Mom a hard time last night and we got kicked off and couldn't finish our blogs.It kept cycling and cycling and then telling us timed out error.Hope that isn't the case tonight! Wishing you a greyt day and I'm send

  Hi Kookie
This morning was a beautiful warm morning with the high's of 80,the lows of 64 and right now at 7:30pm its 73.Mom got us all up early this morning cleaned our cages,fed us and swept our room.Then she went and cleaned the sparrow in the sun room and fed her and gave her fresh water.She's doing really well but is so jumpy whenever anyone comes near her to clean her or to feed her.Her leg is still dragging in back of her which makes it hard for her to sit right.Mom then harnessed Dixie up and got him in the car seat and they took off to Nana's house. When she got there through all the traffic,it took her nearly 45 minutes what normally would take her no more than 15 minutes.Mom got Dixie settled in his cage there in the sun room and then Mom and Nana went to pick up skin sis and Mom stopped for gas,the going rate is $2.63,then went to Petco to check on a cage for our cousin Trixie but they had nothing and couldn't order anything either,then from there they went to the Dollar Tree and Mom got some frozen veggies and both Nana and skin sis got some things there,from there they went to eat at the Dynasty Chinese Restaurant,from there they went to DQ and Mom,Nana and Skin sis got a small blizzard,from there they dropped skin sis back off at her apartment so she could get to her PT appointment.Then Mom and Nana went to Walgreen's where Mom got two cans of soup for $.075,then they went to Stop&Shop where both Mom and Nana got some things.Then they went to the Pet Depot there to check on a cage for Trixie again and they were nice and looked up some cages and will get back to Nana when the bird person comes in.From there they went back to Nana's where Mom had some iced coffee and Nana had some iced tea.Dixie got to enjoy some fresh fruit,then Mom and Dixie went home.When Mom finally made it home,Dad helped her unpack the car,then Dad took Mom to get some milk in Cotuit,Mom had called ahead of time and talked to someone with an accent and was connected with someone else who Mom thought answered her question about the milk she wanted and they told her that the milk was there and how much it cost.While after having to go through nearly another 50 minutes of traffic,there was no milk and the clerck there had no idea what a gallon of milk was from a quart.There were no gallons of milk left.So dad navigated the traffic again to Market Basket where they got seven gallons of milk but the lines there were atrocious!By the time they got back home it was after 6:30pm and Mom got the milk in the freezer and made dad the leftover Chinese singapore noodles that she had for lunch.We all had our snacks when dad got home but Mom cleaned our cages and room.Mom finally got done with dishes and finally is now getting to our blogs.This may be a fast blog today as Mom is so tired and its already late and she might not have time to finish all of our blogs in a few hours time.Mom just found out that Nana fell again trying to bring something upstairs.Will this ever end?I can't wa

How awful to be on vacation and have to deal with these idiots who want to rob you of your money with junk you can't use!The last time someone did that to Mom they made her look like a clown.She couldn't wait to get to the nearest bathroom and get that junk off her face!OOOOHHHHH!That is too hot to even enjoy anything.That Blue Man Group was in Boston not too long ago and it sounds like a bunch of noise to me!I guess the colors would be nice to see!LOL!Mom is still getting everything ready for our trip to see you,she got the travel cages,and the AAA travel cards now she's just waiting for the Trip Tiks to come in the mail.Mom has to get a tarp or something to put over the back seat of dads car so we won't make a mess of it with poop and chewed up papers on such a long long ride.
This morning is a dark dreary cold rainy day with the highs for the day of 75,the lows of 68,right now its 68.Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and room and then she went out to the injured sparrow that my dad found in our yard.Her leg is really bad.Mom cleaned the cage the little sparrow is in and gave her fresh water and as soon as she's done with some chores she'll see if she can get something like a splint to put on her leg.Mom is so surprised she did so well and survived the night.There's nothing to talk about today and its going to be another boring day here with Mom,but we're so happy that she's home with us so we're not complaining.Any day Mom's home with us is a good day boring or not!Nana is in pain and is so frustrated that she can't do what she used to do without getting tired and hurting.We all just can't wait for the Mardi Gras party to begin.Fat Toosday here we come!We're all bringing our masks and are we starving!Its gonna be a fun night for sure!

This morning was a bright sunny morning when it started out but still a little on the cool side.The highs for the day 76 the lows of 64,its 77 right now.Mom opened a few windows as it was really cold last night and had to shut them all.Mom got us all up,cleaned our cages and fed us our bean mix and swept our room.So far its been a quiet day with no one coming over as everyone is in work and Mom will concentrate on vacuuming the house and doing the chores she never got done all weekend.We are hoping that the sunshine comes back so we can get some deck time and a shower or two,right now its all cloudy.There's nothing interesting going on today so far so it'll be another boring day here but we're not complaining as Mom is home with us all day!
We finally got to get outside in the sunshine around 3:00pm and it felt really good to have a nice shower and to be able to watch the world and the birds out there coming and going to the feeders and the bird bath.We even got to join the parents for dinner before my dad found the little sparrow.
My dad just found a little sparrow in the yard and they tried to catch her,her leg is hurt and she's got some blood on her toes and her head has been picked at.Mom has her in the sun room in a little cage with wild bird seed and a cap of water.Mom doesn't want to stress her out to much as it took Dad a while to catch her.She kept rambling around under the rhododendrons that were hard to get under and dad was so afraid that she'd fall into one of the big rat holes there.She finally came out back to the walkway again and he got her with a planter and some cardboard!Mom will look at her leg tomorrow and see if she can put a splint on it.

This morning was a dark cold rainy day here with the highs for the day of 69 the lows of 62,its 66 right now at 6:00pm.Mom got us all up and fed us our warm bean mix with sweet potatoes and cleaned our cages and swept our room.Then she got dad his breakfast and made the coffee and just as she was about to vacuum the house,skin sis came in with our frother and fister,Peepers and Celine.Mom went down cellar with skin sis to put in her laundry and collected what little she had of hers and dad's to add to it and then they came back upstairs and out came the dremmel,birdicure set and as it was raining and cold outside she took Celine and did her overgrown beak first,it was down under her lower beak,she was fairly good this time as Mom was getting her done,just stuck out her tongue a few times.Then Mom did Celine's nails and flight feathers and gave her a good trim.Then it was Peepers turn for his nails which were so long that when Mom clipped just the tips off they bled.He got dredged in flour before he could be put back on the play gym.Then skin sis ordered small pizzas for Mom and dad and herself,Mom got a veggie pizza,skin sis got a chicken ranch bacon pizza and dad got a mushroom.They all ate together and we all got some pizza crusts.Then skin sis got the laundry and Mom and she folded it and skin sis got hers in her basket and Mom put what she had of hers and dads and brought it upstairs.Then skin sis painted Mom's nails and then skin sis had to leave so she packed up Peepers and Celine and her laundry and left.Mom got dad's sandwiches made for the week and then she gave us our afternoon snacks and then took a shower.When she came out of the shower,the sun came out for a few minutes.It felt good but didn't last long.So much for our BBQ today and our getting some outside time in the sunshine.As skin sis and Mom were folding the laundry a blue jay flew over the umbrella on the deck and hit the dining room window.He was just stunned and flew back off to wherever he was headed for.
Just another boring day here and Mom never got anything done again today in the house!

We awoke to a much cooler morning with bright sunshine,the highs for the day being 78 the lows of 64.Its 79 right now and so pleasant to be able to move around without sweating!Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us our bean mix. Then she went upstairs and scrubbed the bathroom and took all the area rugs down to the deck and beat them all out and then went back upstairs to vacuum the whole upstairs as it hadn't been done in weeks as Mom had no time to do it with everything else that was going on around here.Were those floors ever so dusty!Mom had to clean out the dirt collector of the vacuum there was so much dust and dirt in it!Then she started working down stairs and vacuuming there as its been too hot and humid to do any of that!It feels nice to be able to move around without sweating and needing a shower every ten minutes!Mom collected the trash to take to the dump tomorrow along with the recyclables and got them all out in the car and then she just has to make out the Comcast bill to take with her to pay tomorrow.We are hoping to get some deck time with Mom as soon as she is finished.She still has to figure out something to make for dinner as skin sis will be coming over for dinner tonight as she is coming to pick up her car which should be finished by the end of today.She took the loaner car back yesterday as she really didn't like it.Mom doesn't blame her either,who wants to drive a car with a knob instead of a shifter and headlights that are down by the fusebox and to start the car without ever using a key,but with a push button?Is that weird or what?It looked like a car from another planet with all those strange gadgets in it!
We are just having a nice quiet day here with Mom and hoping to get out on the deck soon to enjoy some nice cool air and sunshine!
UGGGGGHHH!There was a big bang and then all our power went down and this time it never came back,Mom was in the middle of helping us with our blogs and had to shut down the computers fast.Now after she had just fixed everything in the house to match time wise(clocks,vcr,coffee maker she's gotta do it all over again,this is the fourth day in a row our power has been dumped on us and its getting quite old!
Well,one good thing out of it all,Mom got to take us out on the deck for some sunshine but now it looks like its going to rain,the sun is gone and its kind of breezy out there.Skin bro came over for a hair cut and Mom told him no power so he left!It really sounds like you all made sure to delay your sweet Momma more than she wanted to be kept back!I think I would've freaked out too if I saw that big old snake heading for my house!I really enjoyed those pizzas and those root beer kegs sure were good that Cookie brought in his little red wagon!I'm glad I came over with the picks for the locks or the party would never be able to start going!I'll bring some frozen key lime pie tomorrow to go with our subway sammie's!Let the party begin!
Wishing you a gre

I will fly right down there and pick those locks and get you sprung from lock down!We have some serious partying to do here while the parronts are gone!You wait and see that Josh will really calm down while your sweet Momma is gone,it gets him to thinking that she might not be coming back so he's gonna sit tight and wait and see if she'll actually dump on him,but we know that your amazing Mom won't do anything of the kind!Oh they just gotta have all their pictures to show for when they come back!This morning was a warm sunny morning with the highs for the day of 83,the lows of 63.At 5:30pm its 79.Mom got us all up early and fed and cleaned our cages and fixed the clocks and coffee maker as the power went out again for the third day in a row, then she got Dixie all harnessed and in the car seat and off they went to Nana's.When they got there they set Dixie up in his cage there in the sun room and Nana fed him some of the bean mix she made and then both Mom and Nana took off in Mom's car.They went to Nana's eye dr. to find out about a bill Nana got,then they continued on to Dennis where they went to Benny's to check out their phones there as both Mom and Nana need new phones,they didn't have anything on sale there,Nana got some cook top cleaner and some other item,from there they went to AAA so Mom could get some trip ticx for her,dad and our trip at the end of the month,they will be sent out to Mom on the 19th.From there they went to lunch at Jason's where they had linguine with chicken veggie soup and Italian bread and coffee,from there they went to Marshalls where Nana got some tea,from there they headed back to Hyannis and went to the Vitamin shoppe but they didn't have what Nana wanted,then they went to Shaw's/Star grocery store where both Nana and Mom got blueberries that were on sale for $.099.Mom got some white rice to make in her rice cooker and Nana got a few more things.Then they went to Centerville to the Cape Cod Health store and Nana didn't find what she was looking for again.Then they went back to Mashpee and to Nana's house where they had a cold drink and then Nana had Mom and Dixie go home before the traffic got any worse and the nuts came out,Dixie cried the whole way back home!Nana sent Dixie home with some fruit snack,but he was too busy watching all the silly people on the road.When Mom got home she got Dixie back in his cage,and put all the groceries away,Dad was there to help unpack the car for her!She got dinner for dad,leftovers from her lunch,linguine and left over pizza from the other night.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and vote #1,376!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hi Kookie
This morning was a very dark morning the highs for the day being 83,the lows of 68.Its a pleasant 77 degrees right now.After Mom got dad off to work this morning the skies kept getting darker and darker and around 7:30am dad called Mom and told her to shut all the windows.But that time it was dark as night and the wind and the rain came down and Mom went racing through the whole house to get all the windows closed.She ran out to the deck to grab the deck table which was heading off the deck with the umbrella bent over it,Mom had to get up on the deck chair and reach for the umbrella to close it all the while being pushed by the wind.Mom finally got it closed and tied and was soaking wet,she had to change her clothes when she came in.It looked like she came out of the shower,then she ran upstairs to get the roof window(skylight)but the floors were already soaked.After she shut all those windows and ran back downstairs to get the others and the ones out in the sun room and spare room off the mud room she ran back upstairs with a mop to mop up the wet floors and window sills!The thunder and lightening was loud and bright,we lost our power in all this again and Mom had to reset all the clocks again.After Mom came in to clean our cages and feed us,she looked out the window and saw that the wind had blown one of the deck chairs off the deck over by the bird feeder.Now the sun is out and for the rain soaked screens you'd never believe we had such a bad morning!
Mom is home with us all day today and after that wild morning we had with Mom running all over the house and mopping up the wet hardwoods,she's going to see what has to be done to start her chores.
How awesome that you are gonna get a visit from a little 5 yr old boy,he will have the time of his life visiting with all of you!And Ohhhh!Noooo!You can't have parrot potty mouth with a little kid in the house!We can only imagine how crazy your poor Mom must be with all the packing and getting ready to leave for tomorrow.Mom is still trying to get our act together here to come and visit you at the end of this month.Hopefully Candida will grow her tail feathers back by then.She's so shameful looking like a duck!

Oh poor Blue being forgotten in the parrot enrichment center!Your poor Mama worrying about what trouble he could be getting into all by himself!It sure sounds like you all were having a greyt time there out and about and getting into everything and under everything!I guess Blue was getting back at your sweet Mama for leaving him alone in the Parrot Enrichment Center while she took off with your daddy!
This morning was a bright sunny warm morning after we lost our power again last night, with the highs for the day of 83 and the low of 72,it's 84 right now.Mom got us up and fed us,cleaned our cages and vacuumed our room and the rest of the house.Then she got a phone call from someone who wanted their cockatiels wings clipped.They came down around 11:00am and Mom got the feisty tiel and got bit to shreds but she did get the flights clipped. They will be back again in October before they leave to go to Florida.They had wanted to check us all out and when they went into the Bird Room,Kallie was out and flew at one of the ladies right in the face!Mom was mortified but the lady was all right.They all just couldn't believe all the ribbons we got for our shows and how old we all were!They wanted Mom to give them a demonstration of how our harnesses worked and Mom had Dixie show them how it worked and they then wanted to see our car seat so Mom showed them what that was and they all wanted one for their tiel.They just didn't know how many things there were for us fids out there.The 2 ladies and the one guy that came told Mom that their Tiel flew off from them and was out in the wild for four days!Mom told them they were lucky to get him back at all!They had gone to a vet in Florida who clipped the tiel's wings and they did a chop job on him and he still flew away,that vet never clipped the proper flights and clipped the covert feathers also!When Mom clipped the tiel's feathers she showed them how he glides easily to the ground and doesn't get hurt by dropping like a rock from a bad clipping.
Mom is home with us for the day and hopefully now it will a quiet uneventful afternoon til dad comes home.Mom ordered our fold'n'go travel cages this morning and they should be here within 5-9 days!
Skin bro came over tonight while Mom was in the shower and he got Candida out,she got really scared and flew and lost all her tail feathers,all twelve of them,now she looks like a duck!Mom can't wait for her visit with your sweet Mama tomorrow!

  Hi Kookie
What's this attacking your sweet loving Momma there?Are you all trying to incapacitate her?Jeez of all places the groin area and then trying to rip her shorts off and take her ear out?You'll have her so bruised and banged up she won't be able to go on vacation,its bad enough her ankle and foot are already bruised and in pain!You guys all better be good to her or we're all coming up there and be on the attack for her safety!LOL!It won't be long now before she and your daddy leave you for a week or so!My Mom is trying to get the plans set for us to come there.But at least we are coming with her and dad!
This morning was a bright sunny warm day,we awoke with a beautiful day with very little humidity so Mom decided to do laundry and did two loads and the sheets and she got it all hung out on the line,then she made sandwiches for my dad for the work week,and then each one of us got our nails done while Dixie and Kallie got their beaks done out on the deck.Dad is starting our BBQ and Mom got some smoked turkey sausage,pork tenderloin and if the skin sibs come she'll put on hamburgers and hot dogs.The traffic is really brutal here now and even the expressways are all jammed up and the backup going off the Bridges are over ten miles long now.I guess everyone wanted to leave here early to avoid the Bridge back up.
Mom and dad had their BBQ but we weren't allowed to come outside as it was still way too hot and the humidity was back again.The skin sibs never made it down,skin sis didn't have a ride and skin bro didn't want to deal with the Bridge backup.Mom and dad brought the laundry in and it dried really well and Mom put the fresh line dried sheets on the bed.As soon as the sun goes down and there's shade on the deck we'll be going out for a little while.It was a nice quiet day here and we all enjoyed every minute of it!

  Hi Kookie
This morning was another bright sunny hot summer morning with the highs for the day of 87 the lows of 66.Right now its 86.Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and swept our room again as it's still too hot to use the vacuum.Then she and dad took off for Ocean Lot to pick up bird seed for the wild birds.The traffic was really brutal out there and it was bumper to bumper traffic and you couldn't go more than 10-20mph along all the roads here.They were headed off to Falmouth.It took them over an hour just to get to Falmouth from here which really only takes about 25 minutes at the most.It looks like every state in the world is here today!After they got through picking up eight 20lb bags of wild bird seed,(2 were for Nana)they went to Dollar Tree to get popcorn for Dad,he was all out.When they got there the popcorn was all wiped out and there were hardly any left so Mom bought 7 boxes of that.They then got back in the car and back into traffic to go to Nana's house so they could drop off the bird seed to her and my dad filled the bird feeder for her and hung it out back for her so her birds can come and get something to eat!Then they got back into the traffic and went home.They left at 10:00am and didn't return til 1:30pm.Pretty sad when two stops takes you nearly all day! Mom has one more thing to do before she can stay home for the rest of the day with us.
Mom and dad finally came home and we all got to go outside and join them for dinner.Dad ordered a Hawaiian Pizza and Mom got a veggie melt sub!Dad kept sharing us with his pizza crust!We had a good time watching the birds come and go and people driving by!Now we are waiting for Mom to come and snuggle with us!
