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-Justice For Ozzi-thank you for BOTD 7/31/14

I am a Cockatoo from Newton, NJ.

Kookie Bird, Nurse Cookie

9 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 Cookie
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the temperatures of highs of 33 degrees and lows of 26. we are at 32 right now.Mom got us up and fed and cages cleaned out.Candida and Dixie got to sleep with Mom and Kallie got to stay in his sleeping box in the tv room all night.After Mom got us all settled she got dressed with her warm clothes on and boots and went out to the garage to start tackling the deck and walkway and mail box and as she opened the garage door there was skin bro tackling her side of the driveway and was she ever so glad to see him!While he was working on the driveway,Mom walked around to the other side of the house,she had to walk in the street and down our street to get there to start the walkway and mail box.Mom could barely get a small path made as the snow was so deep and so high and she made a small path all the way up to the deck and found one stair at a time and by the time she got to the top of the deck skin bro was down by the mailbox making that better and larger so the mail truck will fit in to get to the mail box.Then skin bro took over cleaning off the whole deck and he even cleared the snow off the top of the birdhouse and opened up the other entry hole for them.Mom went back inside as her arms were really aching at that point.Skin bro finished the deck and the walkway and Mom made him breakfast of waffles and strawberry shortcake coffee.Then dad called and wanted to know if skin bro would help him give his car a jump start as it wasn't working and had been in the snow for three days and skin bro said he would and hung around with Mom til 3:00pm when dad called and said he got someone at work to help him so skin bro left and Mom got dinner in the oven.Now dad called Mom and told her that he needed her to come up and bring some antifreeze and distilled water from home as his car started smoking and was running very hot so now Mom has to leave and drive on these awful roads to bring dad the stuff and she's so hoping that his car will work with this and it won't be anything more serious.Well,Mom went up and the roads were treacherous and slippery,she even slipped and skidded on the road in front of our garage.And the roads into town were no better,she was so happy that it didn't take dad too long to fill his car with the antifreeze and distilled water and it was really getting dark as they were heading home again,the snow piles were so high you couldn't see around them and it was quite dangerous with those cars that didn't even put their lights on when it was dark.Mom is hoping she just doesn't have to go out tomorrow.When dad came home she made him pork tenderloin,mashed potatoes and mixed veggies.He took his shower and went to bed as he has to get up at 4:00am and he's still on the twelve hour work schedule til further notice.Maybe Mom can get to her house chores tomorrow.Maybe clean out the coal stove!
How is your poor Mama and daddy doing?Are they still barking and coughing?Mom and everyone here has been so w

  osed to get more on Friday and on the weekend.We are only so happy to be back on BC again,my dad will not be coming home again tonight as the roads are really bad and he doesn't want to get stuck in our driveway and on the roads coming home.He's been working in twelve hour shifts for the last several days.Mom's arms are killing her and she is so happy to be back in the warm house,she doesn't want to see another snowflake for the rest of the winter,the deck is still piled up as is the walkway and the mailbox,she was too tired and sore to deal with it today!And tomorrow they're supposed to send a truck down here to plow the street out better and there goes the end of the driveway that was plowed out,this time it will be higher than ever and like one big wall!Mom's none too happy with that!I'm so sorry for rambling on and on like this!We're just so happy that we can talk again and visit!Now Mom's got a lot of catching up to do and not much time to do it in!I will be back tomorrow to chat more after Mom is done with more shoveling,this time the deck and walkway and mail box so we can get some mail!

  Hi Cookie
We are so sorry that we never got back to you,our power went out on Tuesday morning around 7:00am and Mom was busy trying to get the old coal/wood stove to run and after two and a half hours she finally succeeded.Then when the embers were bright orange she put the coal on top and it actually took this time.Mom shut the tv room door to keep the heat in the tv room and brought all our small deck cages in and then brought us all inside,she had to tie the door shut as the strong winds just whipped through the house and kept opening the door.All day and all night we listened to the wind whipping around us out there and the windows were all pasted with the snow so you couldn't see out the windows.Mom called NStar and they told her that it would be multiple days before we got our power back because as soon as they would fix one area another would break down.Then on the street that we are off of a big tree fell down and one of the town trucks broke down and NStar couldn't do the repair job that needed to be done.Early this morning Mom went out to see just how bad things were and there's a tree that fell over in the driveway and the snow is piled higher than my Mom is.The deck and yard are covered and the snow is as high as the four foot fence,the snow on the deck is up to the top of the bottom of the glass part of the storm door and right against the house.Mom was out there this morning trying to shovel the snow,its 23 degrees and the sun is out today but Mom's fingers are frozen and they were beginning to sting so she came inside for a rest.She tried to use the snow plow but the snow is way too high for that little thing.Mom is trying to get just dads side of the driveway done as he's been staying at work overnight for the last few nights and is running out of food so Mom has to get the driveway shoveled so he can come home.She tried calling plow companies but they haven't gotten back to her yet.We got well over 24 inches of snow as the surrounding towns got 24 inches.
Mom finally got someone to plow out half her driveway and the guy kept getting stuck as there was lots of ice underneath it,he had to get pulled out by the guy who was plowing out the neighbors yard across the street with a bob cat.He had a big truck with a plow on it and no matter what he did he kept getting stuck.He even pulled the tree up that had fallen across the driveway for Mom.The roads here are badly done and you can see everyone bouncing up and down coming down LakeSide even in their SUV's and skin bro came to help Mom this morning and got stuck on the corner of Lakeside,the street that Mom is off of and no one would help him,he had to get out and shovel himself out and finally someone came along and pushed him but instead of coming into Lakeside they pushed him onto the main road so Mom told him to go home as he kept fishtailing for most of the way down here.Mom was so scared he might slide into something.This snow is way too much and we have no place to put it and we're supp

  Hi Cookie
This morning was a dull day here,the highs being 37 and the lows to be 18 and right now we are hanging in at 28.Mom barely got all our cages cleaned and our warm bean mix served,the floor quickly swept up from all our mess and a load of laundry in the washer,my dad's breakfast and coffee made when Shiloh was at the door.Mom went down cellar to put her wash in the dryer and Shiloh put her wash in the washer and then they came back upstairs to start baking,and as soon as they got started with the first thing they decided to make Anthony called Shiloh and wanted to know if it was all right if he could come over also.Mom said why not?And he was here in no time at all.Mom went down and got her wash out of the dryer and then folded it while Shiloh got her first dish put together,then after Mom got her dish ready to go in the oven she made lunch for them all of meatball roll up with lettuce and cheese.Then skin sis and Mom finished baking and got the rest of what they made in the oven,they made brownies,Orange Rum Cake,Cherry Cheesecake Dumpcake,and Mom made 12 cannoli's. Mario got to join everyone at the table after lunch and Candida got to hang out with Peepers and Celine on the big play gym in the dining room while everyone was busy.After Mom finished cleaning up the kitchen and washing all the baking dishes and putting everything they baked in containers,Shiloh and Anthony were ready to leave to go home as it was after 5:00pm so before they left they took nearly everything that was baked today and when dad came to get himself some of what was baked and only got to have 4 brownies he couldn't believe his eyes!Mom had told him before that he's got to be faster and come and get it as soon as it cools off.After the kids left,Mom made dad some dinner of left over pork tenderloin,mashed potatoes and peas all in one skillet.Dad probably won't be home after tonight because they are telling us that this blizzard we're going to be getting is going to be going on and on right into Wednesday.We'll be getting a lot of snow,then rain then back to snow again and we won't see our dad til probably after Wednesday night.Supposed to get anywhere from 12-16 inches.Mom is not happy about that one and the things she's most worried about are the high 75mph winds,that could knock our power out and cut us off from being with our BC Family.Mom is worried about keeping us all warm.
Your poor sweet Momma coughing and barking like that all day and feeling so miserable and then having to go to work on top of it all!Those bad headaches are no fun at all and no wonder she spent most of the day in bed,my Mom doesn't blame her,please know that Mom and all of us are praying for her and your sweet daddy to start feeling better and praying that those bad headaches will leave them both.Please give them both a warm hug from all of us here and tell them just how much we love them!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kiss

This morning was a dark dismal dreary day here,with snow to start off with and then as everything turned white outside,lawns,deck,trees.cars and roof tops,the rain began and turned everything to slippery slush,so now we have lots of slippery slushy puddles all over our yard and deck,Mom had gone out earlier and shoveled off the deck so it wouldn't turn to ice later on when the temperatures dropped.The highs for today are 39,the lows being 28 and right now its 37,and its still pouring rain big time. Mom made lots of fresh PB&J sandwiches for my dad's lunch cooler box and filled it with cereal bars,cookies to snack on,juice boxes and extra Kcups in case he runs out of coffee in his thermos,Mom has that and the coffee maker ready to go also,its Crew A's turn to be on today and that's what my dad is on.Now its just a matter of time and the weather dropping to see if he'll be going out tonight. Mom cleaned our cages and fed us our warm bean mix and now we are all hoping that it will be a nice weekend here with our dad staying home with us,but knowing our weather that just might not be the case!The winds have been picking up now and the trees and branches sure are blowing low to the ground now! They just called my dad out now so Mom got his things together and here we are all by ourselves,Mom just had enough time to get dinner on the table and dad had just barely enough time to eat it!She made pepperoni and sausage pizza.Now we have no idea whether he'll be out all night or coming home in the wee hours of the morning.It's 32 right now and the snow is coming down good now!I can't believe you have 8 inches of snow!How awful!Its too dark to see out there properly but hopefully it won't amount to much here but they are talking about a much bigger storm for us on Monday into Tuesday.It was so good to hear that you are getting out now and getting some daddy time,and he was teasing you with the handkerchief tossing it over your head!Your poor parronts barking like that still,we all are praying so hard for them that they feel better soon!You are so right about it being way too cold to be out there,I'm sticking to my Mom close under my blanket and snuggling on down and off my feet.Waiting for my daddy to get home!Candida is wailing because she misses daddy!

Yaaaaayyyy!I'm the one who stomped on your 1,000th vote!
This morning was cold and there was frost on the lawns and deck.Our high's were 36 degrees and the lows will be 30.Mom got us up early and cleaned our cages and fed us our warm bean mix and then she collected the trash and loaded it in her car and then she took off to Nana's and from there they went to the dump and then to the bank then to Kenmark to get Nana's typewriter ribbon but it was the wrong size so they are going to resend for the right size.Then they went to Falmouth and went to the Dollar Tree where both Mom and Nana got some Italian Wedding Soup and a few other things and then they checked out PetCo but didn't find anything there either.Then they went to Comcast so Mom could return some equipment for skin bro and Nana could get another remote and return the one she had as it didn't work.From there they got gas in Nana's car and the going rate for gas here is $2.25.They went back to Nana's and had some lunch of salad and tuna and then Mom helped Nana fix her couch cover to get it on right and then Mom helped untangle some necklaces that Nana had and then it was well after 4:00pm so Mom left to go home and she no sooner got around the rotary when she was stopped with all the other traffic that was backed up.There was a bad accident quite a distance down the road and by the time Mom got up to where it was the ambulance had already went by and the tow trucks and police cars were just about finishing up from the mess,there was a kids Little Tykes picnic bench in the road along with some other smashed thing.It took Mom a half hour or more to finally get home.Dad had already fed us our snacks and filled our humidifier and Mom is happy to be home and is still trying to get warm.They are expecting our storm to start here around 3:00pm but there are other forecasts which are saying that it will start at 7:00am.Hopefully we'll only get rain but then the others are saying a coating to an inch.As soon as Mom is done with dinner and the dishes and cleaning our room she will be ours for the night to snuggle with!
So far they are saying we'll be getting rain to start with and we so pray our daddy doesn't have to go out but we just know what Mom will be doing in the morning,yup,making lots or pb&j sandwiches just in case and getting the coffee maker and thermos and the rest of the goodies ready in his lunch box cooler!Your poor sweet Parronts being so sick and Mom feels so bad for your poor sick Momma having to go grocery shopping,Mom hates the grocery stores on a good day never mind when she's sick like your poor Momma!Now see?All that firewood you had is gone and its on days like these that you could cuddle up to a warm fire!

No need to tell me girlfriend. Goffins RULE. I am pretty sure you already knew that though lol. My folks sure enjoyed meeting yours too. Oh and mom says to thank you folks for the CD etc. It was pretty awesome to see all the picture they took. Mom still hasn't done much with their pics other than download them off the camera. I can't wait until mom retires and has more time to do these things. Its been rather busy beginning as mom has had to have another tooth pulled (another cracked root) ... the dentist tells her these things start to happen at her age ... ugh ... I don't think she should get any older lol. Anwho .. have a great Friday and an awesome weekend. V4U. Hugs.

You don't have to apologize for not coming over!Mom and I can only imagine just how bad your poor Momma is feeling right now just trying to get over what she had and now it thrown right back into it from your daddy!And then on top of it all that sad sad situation with Blue's former owner and all that end of life care,how sad and depressing that must be for your poor sweet Momma to have to deal with along with everything else!Your amazing wonderful Momma is the best friend anyone could ever pray for,there is just no one who has the warmest most loving heart in the world but your incredible Mom and my Mom and family all just couldn't imagine our lives with out you all in it,you and your wonderful Momma have brought such joy and love into our world,along with real true love and caring and family that none can compare to!Mom has been so busy with all her errands yesterday and then having to rush home to get my daddy's things ready to go for his 2:00am work schedule that by the time she got any sleep last night she could barely see where she was going,he left for work and has been there since 3:00am and when he comes home after 4:00pm today he's gonna take a shower eat dinner and go right to bed so it'll be another night that none of us will see him.That aspirin is whats keeping me from screaming out loud in pain,I got to sleep with Mom on the couch all last night while my dad was gone and I so loved it and wish I could do it again tonight but I know Mom will probably be upstairs with my dad by then!Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for my sweet fister,and vote #997!Love Dixie

Oh do those bones you got from your daddy sound really good to me!And Mom's mouth is just watering over that hot and sour soup!But I so agree with you that I wouldn't want to kiss my Mom either with that hot stuff layered on her lips!Oh it sure sounds like you and Bella are getting your spray sessions everyday now and Bella is the same way,she just doesn't love that spray at all!There is so much going on about plucking and it can go anywhere from a change in the household to bad vibes between household members,to medical issues,illness,hormones,dry skin and more,it seems that its also a bad habit that has been unintentionally learned and also inbreeding,Mom has done so much research on plucking from when I used to pluck and there just never seems to be an answer you can put your wing on.But stress has a lot to do with it also!Our fister Brenna(Nanday)was wild caught that Mom rescued from that awful pet store in Plymouth as she had an open band on her leg and she was plucked beyond any help and was into self mutilation by the time Mom found her.Its really so sad.But it can grow into a self satifaction thing feeling the pain gives one a rush and so one keeps doing it over and over as the feeling makes one so happy.My Mom is with your sweet Momma on the no drugs as that can only make things worse.Oh poor Petey taking Pepcid AC,he should absolutely learn to not be such a vacuum cleaner and suck up all the scraps and stuff that you throw on the floor to him,that's what your sweet Momma is for to clean the mess up!LOL!

This morning was a bright sunny morning and early in the morning all the B crew was out treating the roads as they were a bit slippery.Our highs for the day are 46 and our lows will be 26 but right now its 41 degrees and not too cold out,not frigid like it has been,even the house feels warm.Mom was starting to get some house chores done after taking her time in our room,cleaning our cages and then bringing us some warm bean mix when skin bro showed up.So Mom stopped what she was doing and spent some time with him and gave him a blueberry muffin she made to eat and offered him some of the other goodies that she and skin sis made yesterday and he came to see Mario(as its his hatchday as well as Kallie's and our cousin Bella's(CAG).Then after he left with a care package of all the goodies that Mom and skin sis made yesterday, Mom continued to finish some of the chores she started and is looking through her recipe books to make Kallie and Mario a hatchday cake.
Mom is going to make angel hair pasta for dinner tonight and I just can't wait to get some of that for sure! I have been eating really good and Mom has been giving me a big bowl of hot pumpkin spice oatmeal for breakfast along with my bowl of pastene/egg/veggie mix and I lick the bowl clean every time and Mom has been weighing me several times a day and so far I've gained almost two grams.I'm not into eating my pellets anymore and Mom really wants me to eat them so she's trying to put them on my warm oatmeal.Mario is still eating well and he does finish his bowl of blueberry yogurt and millet mix and a bowl of pellets everyday now which makes Mom happy!
Now that sounds really well and Mom will definitely tell Nana about the bottled Feather In as she is now spraying Bella with it too so you're not alone!It sure seems like your poor sweet Mom is going as crazy as my Mom is between me,Mario,Shiloh and Nana.You and Bella are so alike at chewing your feathers off,she does her tail feathers and her chest feathers which drives Nana insane,and no one can figure it out whether its the dry heat in the house or breeding season or emotional problems!Mario also has been doing alot of roosting in the middle of the day but with no stimulation I guess he gets so bored!Mom just wants to have some time where she can just get him out for an hour of the day.And that goes for me too,at least I got to sit in the acrylic cage today and sit in the sunshine for what its worth!EWWWW!How can your sweet daddy suck down KFC?Mom can't stand the smell of fried anything these days!I do hope you get more than just a bare bone out of it when he does get KFC!I got some angel hair pasta tonight for dinner and did I suck that up,Mom wanted to stuff me with it but thought better of it!Now with the Pats/SeaHawks game have you heard the latest?The Pats are being investigated for using a deflated football?What's with that?Jeez!

This morning was a dullish day but quite warm considering the last several weeks we've had.Our highs for the day were 49 and our lows for the day will be 35 and by late morning the sun actually came out.Mom got us all up,cleaned our cages and fed us our warm bean mix and then she vacuumed the whole downstairs and our bird room too.Then skin sis called and wanted to come over to bake with Mom and visit and have our frother and fister's birdicure done,so by early afternoon she came and Mom did beaks and nails on Celine and Peepers.Then while skin sis was here she tried doing Kallie's beak but he simply refused to keep his fat tongue inside his mouth so Mom only got to dremel his upper beak.Then they got to work baking and this time they made coconut blondie bars,simple S'mores snack bars,no bake pumpkin pie,snicker doodle cookies and blueberry muffins with Mom's big fresh blueberries she bought.Then they took a break for lunch late in the afternoon and had some of Mom's homemade chili.They both cleaned up the kitchen after that and then Mom packaged up half of what they made for skin sis to take home with her.Then it was time for dinner and Mom made my dad French Toast from some fresh Italian loaf she got and Candida got to share that with him.Mom brought Dixie some pumpkin spice oatmeal this morning to help put some grams back on him as he ate the pastene/egg/veggie mix Mom had given us for our breakfast and he ate that whole bowl up also.Then Mom brought Dixie in some blueberry muffin with the big blueberries and he ate that up also.Mom weighed Dixie and he put back one gram and Mom is hoping to keep that gram and get more on him also.They ran out of time but tomorrow morning Mom will be baking a hatch day cake for Mario,Kallie and Nana's Bella(CAG) our cousin as they will all be 21 years old.
Yesterday Mom was dremmeling my beak and she noticed that I was feeling thin so she stopped dremmeling and got me right on the scale and found I had lost 10 grams like overnight!Mom was so upset,and immediately started giving me bowls of my bean mix and then this morning she made me pumpkin spice hot oatmeal and I ate a whole bowlful of that and by the time I was done with eating three bowls of pastene/egg mixture my crop was really full!Mom had me on the playgym perch and I fell off and landed on my back and I couldn't get up and lay there with my feet up in the air,Mom freaked out and ran to get me and held me!So I never got my beak finished and shaped,Mom is going to do that another time!Oh Cookie how could you chew your secondary feathers like that,to only hurt yourself and keep yourself grounded now!You are very healthy and I think that maybe that you were so upset about something,maybe the bad vibes of your daddy not feeling well!I think that you are just feeling the stress of what is going on from what your poor Mamma is going through and now your daddy being so sick!I just can't believe that everyone last night really cared about me and it left m

We woke up to a bright sunny but freezing cold morning here with the temperatures of barely 10 degrees,its warmed up a bit to 18 degrees right now and the rhododendron leaves are shriveled up tight,the poor cold sparrows are all trying to keep warm in the new birdhouse my dad built for them as they keep coming and going with new stuff to line their little condos inside with.Our highs for today will be 21 and the lows will be 18.Mom cleaned our cages thoroughly this morning and gave us our warm bean mix of pastene/egg/peas and corn mix and did we chow that down fast.Mom tells us we're lucky to have a nice warm room to stay inside away from all this frigid cold!Mom and dad are home with us for the whole day eggcept a few hours in the late afternoon when they have to go out but they should be back a little after 5:00pm. Other than Mom is getting some house chores done and things put away its going to be a very boring day here!Mom is freaking out right now because my weight dropped to 59 grams and when she held me trying to do my beak she couldn't believe how little I felt to her,she never finished my beak as she didn't want to stress me out any more than I was.I did eat three big bowls of pastene/egg/peas and corn mix though and had an animal cracker.Celine will be more than happy to go with Baldrick tonight,she just can't wait!Poor Aunt Jeanne with the flu,please give her all our love and tell her we are sending healing prayers her way with lots of warm hugs!Our prayers go out to your sweet daddy to so he can start feeling better and be able to keep some food down,this bug sure is a pain in the tail feathers,Mom just got word that Shiloh is in the hospital right now because of a bad headache,Mom can never sit still for one minute without someone or some fid getting sick and needing her help.Mom only hopes she can concentrate on the Milonga tonight and not mess up with her mind going in three different directions.
We all just can't wait to get to the Milonga tonight and hope to see you there!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and vote#988 for you! Loving you always and forever,Dixie

Your poor daddy falling like that and catching a cold from being at the dentist at the VA,it seems like the germs there are really running rampant at that place!Its really so good that Charlie and Baldrick really get along so well together!I have been really antsy today and wanted Mom to take me out so I could play with Kallie in the big playgym in our room but she wouldn't let me because she knows I'll just jump off the playgym onto the hardwood floor like I did this morning and hurt my leg again.So I've been really crying up a river stuck in my cage all day as she was busy with cleaning the house and waiting for my dad to come home who was held over til nearly 7:00pm tonight.Now she has to make him dinner at this late hour and just threw in some chicken strips and steak fries and fresh broccoli for his dinner.Then Mom wants to take a nice hot shower as its already snowing here again and the deck and everything out there is covered in white all over again,and mom has been collecting the trash and recyclables to take to the dump tomorrow along with Nana's things and go on their errand runs,Nana has to pay her RE taxes and they need to do some other errands.Mom sure is hoping that its not going to be slippery out there and it won't amount to much tonight,dad is hoping that the roads he and his men treated will last through the night so he doesn't have to go back out there,hopefully it'll be the other crew B that will be up now!Oh that bad Doo chewing on your sweet Momma's clog like that!How funny that must've been to see that big white chicken attacking your poor Momma's foot!Mom loves Zumba but she only wishes she could dance,she is such a big klutz and has no talent for anything in the arts!The new dances really threw Mom so she hopes that she will do better next week.We are so praying that your Momma's knee is feeling better so she won't have to be in such pain anymore.Mom wants to get back into her daily workouts with her weights and the treadmill again and every time she gets ready to start something always comes up and she never even gets it started!

Today was another dark dismal grey Ocean Effects snowing day. It was 27 degrees and our highs for the day were to be 33 and our lows of 31 but right now its 28 degrees and still snowing not that badly but enough to cover the streets,lawns and deck in white and to make it interesting driving.Mom got us all up and quickly cleaned our cages and swept our floor then she got ready to go with skin sis to zumba class and some errand runs with Nana.Their Zumba class was quite interesting as the teacher was doing all new dances there and there were a lot of new faces there. Toni,the class teacher was so glad to see Mom and skin sis again as were some of the other people in the class as they weren't there for three weeks.Then from there they went to pick up Nana and off they went to Dennis to pick up some Higgins Fruit to Nut Mix for Trixie II as she was all out of Madagascar mix and this was the only place that had something close to it that she likes. Then from there they went into Yarmouth to Shaw's grocery store where both Mom and Nana got some good markdowns on salad and some Atkin's tv dinners which were on sale and Mom and Nana both had coupons for $1.50 off so they picked up some of those and then from there they went to Hyannis to BJ's where they looked around but didn't see anything,Mom checked out the rice cooker's and the prices so she can decide which one she'll be able to get.They only had one model there which not only cooked rice but other veggies also.Then as it was getting to be past three oclock and they hadn't had lunch yet they all went to Olive Garden and had soup,salad and bread sticks and the bread sticks were so salty this time around.Then as it was beginning to snow heavier they decided to come home and we were so happy to see Mom at a halfway decent hour.Dad had come home first and had given us our snacks and filled our pellet dishes.Then after Mom put all the groceries away she came in to see us and then give our room a quick sweeping from all the chewed paper we managed to flap onto the floor and pellet dust and snack crumbs from our animal crackers and peanuts that dad gave out!Mom is so looking forward to her visit with your sweet Momma,I sure hope that webinar isn't too long so she can come home at a decent hour for you!Kallie does that to Mom here also,he just loves to eat his pellets sitting at his door front and let the pellet dust fall three stories down to the floor in front of Candida's cage so she could get blamed for it!Your poor daddy falling like that and getting hurt so badly!Please give him our love and tell him we wish him to feel better and our thoughts and prayers are with him!Oh I don't think Petey will love having to face those big needles and I'm sure glad that we don't have to get those immunizations!I'll bet Baldrick and Charlie both had such a greyt time hanging out on top of their cages and making a nice mess for your poor Mom to clean up after!

  Hi Cookie
Mom and Dad were relaxing last night and Mom was falling asleep and at around 12:30am the phone rang and dad was off to work.It was just raining out but the temperatures had dropped and there were icy spots in some areas.Then when my dad had called my Mom several hours later for her to get his cooler lunch box and thermos of coffee ready for him when he came by Mom looked out the window and the deck had a coating of snow all over it.Its 27 degrees out there and snowing right now and all the lawns and deck is covered in snow,the sun is just now coming out.Our highs for the day will be 26 and the lows 23.Skin bro came over early this morning and spent several hours with Mom and before he left Mom sent him home with some of the Red,White and Blue Cake and Peach Melba Cake and a big container of chilli that she made.
Well,the temperatures dropped and the snow continued all day and now everything is covered in white,the street,lawns,deck,trees,everything and its 23 here and now its calling for snow and rain,its a good thing that the other crew is up now because my daddy just came home and went straight to bed.So Mom has no idea what she's supposed to do for dinner tonight,not knowing how long my daddy is gonna stay sleeping,he worked from 1am to 4:00pm and is a complete zombie.That really must've been so scary for your Mom to have fish tailed in the jeep coming home from work last night,we're all so relieved that she made it safely home to you,Mom would've been freaking out for sure!How inconsiderate for those people in FL to put that stuff in her to do list at that late hour after she had discussed it with them earlier in the morning!Now I agree with you on what your sweet Momma said about being able to see the fids when the days get lighter again!Just when will that be?I don't see any difference just yet!Mom can't wait to have her visit with your awesome Momma tonight,but if she doesn't hear from her she'll figure on tomorrow night then!

Happy ToosDay dear friends, try to stay warm (cuddling with each other is the best way), even Ziggy & I do that, and LaLo does it with dad, but no bird was a cuddle bird like our Angel! Love to all in your happy home, from Jen & our flock, see ya tomorrow...

This morning was a dark,dismal,dreary,drab rainy day with the temperatures at 39 degrees our highs of 42 and our lows of 30,but we haven't seen the 40's yet and its already 3 in the afternoon.Mom made more Chilli today and it made the house smell so good. She then started getting dinner ready for dad,which will be cod with fresh broccoli and steak fries,she had to package up all the chili she made and now is going to have some fun trying to fit it in the freezers! Mom cleaned our cages good this morning and gave us our warm bean mix which was pastene egg and peas and corn mixture.
Mom was home with us all day today which made us very happy but she was busy with cooking and the house chores but we will get our time after dinner when we can all come and snuggle with her! We are supposed to have some snow later on and if that does happen my dad will be back out to work as his crew is up tonight.This will be the only day of this week that we will be forecast with snow and if it turns icy if the temperatures drop it will be treacherous driving but then that's what my dad does,he saves the town from slipping and sliding all over the place!That Shark floor steamer must be really awesome and must work really good on getting all the bird poop off the floors without having to scrub hard!Mom and I watch the infomercials on tv about it!I guess Blue must think its a big bad dragon with all that steam coming out of it!I should think that you should get one of those duck drumsticks because you are such a sweet little girl and are a good protector and an awesome fister too!Mario had another good day today,he ate everything in his bowl,along with the regular blueberry yogurt and the aspirin and a little pastene,egg mixture with millet and some pellets.He did a lot of napping today who wouldn't as it was so dark all day and then he was yelling his little tiel head off late this afternoon looking for his water bottle,Mom had taken them all out this morning to sterilize and clean them and his animal cracker snack!Josh had better learn not to lunge at your poor Momma like that!That is just not nice at all and can land you more time in the cage and lock down than you care to have!

We woke up to a cold partly sunny morning with the temperatures at 25.Mom gave us a full deep cleaning of our cages and she just barely got done when skin sis came over.They spent the day baking as usual and Mom started making chili while skin sis started making some things and by the time they were done they had made Caramel Apple cake,Red,White and Blue Cake,Peach Melba Cake and Pumpkin Pie Bars.While the last of the cakes were baking skin sis and Mom sat down around 3:30pm and had some of the chili that Mom had made and they both enjoyed it on such a freezing cold day as today was,Mom couldn't get warm as she kept having to go out into the freezer in the garage,then the cold pantry then the cold sun room to get supplies to bake with.Skin sis left around 5:30pm to go home and Mom packed her half of everything they made together.Our highs for the day were 30 and our lows for tonight are 29 and we are at 32 right now.It was a basically boring day around here today.Mom is getting her hopes back up for Mario as he for the second day in a row ate the regular blueberry yogurt that Mom got for him the other day with millet and a little pellets mixed in along with the aspirin meds.He nearly licked the bowl clean and was on the bottom of his cage looking and begging for more when Mom came in our room.Mom only gave him a few pellets more to tide him over till the morning,she doesn't want him to fill his crop up too much so he can have time to empty it by morning.How funny that Miranda never freaked out with that squirrel hanging down on her like that!What a bad squirrel to invite himself inside and eat that loaf of bread!Those CawCaws are so smart and they will scream really loud outside for Mom to come and give them something to eat here also!Josh is not very nice with that lunging at your poor Momma,she gives him lots of good things to eat and that's how he pays her back?I sure do hope your daddy's headache goes away so that you can have some Cookie time with him,its awful when you have to sit and wait for some nice scritches and snuggle time!What is going on with our world today?No matter where you look there's always some kind of a revolt going on and people killing each other over something stupid or killing innocent beings like the Boston Marathon,how so very sad for those poor people and now this in France.

This morning was a cold frigid morning with the temperatures at 24 degrees,our highs for the day were 31 and our lows of 19.Mom hurriedly got our cages cleaned and our room,collected the trash and froze taking it out to the garage and loaded it in the car.Then after warming the car up a bit she took off to Nana's and put all the trash in her car along with Nana's trash and they took off for the dump,then from there they went to the water dept to pay Nana's water bill,then on to Falmouth to Ocean State Job Lot and Nana got some weather stripping for her french doors and Mom got a plastic drain declogger thing.Then they went to Stop&Shop where they got quite a few buys,fresh blueberries, and some other groceries that were on sale,then on to Comcast to pay their bills and Mom got a new remote for the tv as the one she had the buttons were worn out,then onto Dollar Tree,the one that got set on fire,and now instead of carpeting on the floors they have linoleum on the floor,and Mom got dad lots of those crackers he likes for his soup and some steak fries and a scrub brush for the floor,then they went to Shaw's grocery and they really got lots of good buys there including ice cream for $1.99 and soup for $0.50 each but you had to buy ten to get the sale price so Mom and Nana split the soup between them,they got some cod,Mom got some marked down cereal for dad,frozen veggies,Red Barron pizza,mini gingerbread muffins,pumpkin spice hot oat cereal,bacon,cream cheese among other things,then Mom got her free 1 quart sauce pan that she had saved the little stickers for that they gave you each time you spend over $10.00 in groceries and as they left Shaw's it was snowing out,then they went to Roche Bros grocery store where they got more sale items and awesome mark downs and by the time they were done it was well after 4:00 and getting dark and both Mom and Nana never had anything to eat for lunch or drink.They headed back to Nana's house where Mom unpacked the car and put all her things in her car and brought Nana's things in the house and dad had called Mom to find out where she was as it was getting dark and he knows that Mom hates driving in the dark,so Mom hurried home and by the time she got done unpacking the car,dad was taking everything out for her so she could put things away and play freezer roulette with all the frozen items,and was it freezing going back and forth from the kitchen to the pantry to the garage to the big freezer there to put things away.By the time Mom got dad a tv dinner for his dinner and us our cages cleaned it was nearly 7:00pm.Mom was munching on some of the hermits she bought as she was starving but too tired to make herself a decent meal!I agree with you that those grey fisters are really brats trying to pierce your sweet Momma's ear lobe like that and then trying to take a chunk outta her index finger too!OUCH!I was so mad at Mom today as she made me stay home because she said it was too cold to go for a car ride with her!At

We woke up this morning to a bright sunny day but to the temperatures of minus 9. Everything is so frozen and the rhododendron leaves are so curled up tight they look like they will just fall off and crack and break.The poor frozen sparrows outside are now foraging for nesting materials and Mom and I have been watching them bring back long pieces of grass and twigs and pulling them inside the entry holes of the nest box.Mom is home with us all day today and she's even way too cold to go out to the pantry to get anything to eat or make for dinner tonight!Its days like these that she misses having the fridge in the kitchen. The highs for the day are supposed to be 18 and the lows will be 18 but right now the temperature has risen to a warm 9 degrees!How cool is that you got to fly right into your daddys lap and settle there to watch some tv with him!You had all of us cracking up when CUBird flew into the sink!And Miranda got herself potted with the potted plants,those two sure are hilarious!Such greyt flying skills!That is so unfair that they won't insure your poor Mom while she is working for them.That just isn't right to eggspect her to be able to pay hospital bills or Drs bills for that matter.And without some form of medical insurance those drs visits and meds are astronomical and unaffordable!Its so good that she doesn't have to deal with the stress of those grand inquisitors anymore!What a nerve making her go through all those tests,and interrogations like they did to her yesterday!Just so wrong!She is the best they've got why can't they see that?

This morning was a bright sunny morning with the temperatures at 19 degrees with our highs to be 25 and our lows at 1 degree. Skin sis had a dentists appointment so after she was done there she picked up Nana and then came and got Mom and they went to Hyannis where they went to Hearth N Kettle for breakfast then to the Mall to exchange something that Nana had got and to look for a bathrobe but didn't find anything there,then they went to CVS in the Mall and got some marked down candy,then they went to Barnes and Noble book store,then they went to Town Hall so Mom could pay her RE taxes,then on to Dollar Tree where skin sis and Nana got some things,then on to Home Goods,where Nana got a new toilet paper holder,then Bed Bath and Beyond but only skin sis found something there.It was so cold just getting out of the car and walking into the places they had to go to.After that it was getting dark and even colder so skin sis dropped Mom off before taking Nana home and then she herself could go home.Its so cold that even the heat boxes don't seem to be catching up with keeping the house warm.Then when Mom got in our dad told Mom that a co worker of his had a loose cockatiel flying outside his window in the freezing cold and he wanted to know how to catch it and dad told him to bring out some food and water and to throw a towel over him once he go close enough to do so.He surely wouldn't survive in this cold.Mom is so glad to be home right now in the warm house.And its only going to be so much colder tomorrow before we get any warm up to the 20's later on in the week!Your poor wonderful Momma having to deal with all that mess with the grand inquisitor and the corporates and having her be tested,and making her sign her life away practically!Oh is that Doo something else with that chocolate box and he knows just right where its at and he must've been so happy with his walnut and nite nite kiss,now I would think that would really make him happier than having that chocolate!Now you got a good deal with the almond and having two more stashed away in your foraging toy!Candi is such a fresh thing,she was attacking Mom's arm and biting her through her coat,she was like a rabid bird,chasing Mom and biting right through the coat to her arm which hurt!Now you can't tell me that she hates the color yellow and navy!I'm so glad those corporate yeehaws are leaving to go back home where they belong!Mom just can't wait for her visit with your incredible Mom tonight!

Oh how nice of your sweet Mamma's boss's wife to make that fresh fruit platter with the low fat raspberry dip for her hatchday,what an awesome thing to have done for her!Now just why didn't she bring some of it home to you all,that wasn't nice!You all love fruit just as much as the next one!That Battlestar Gallactica card really must've been so cool to see!Its after 3:30pm here and Anthony got some snow in Mashpee and Nana who only lives a few miles down the road got just a little!When Anthony IM'd Mom around a half hour ago we hadn't had any snow here yet but when mom went out to the mailbox to check on mail,it was snowing very lightly,and at only 18 degrees it was so cold out there!You better tell Old White Lace Bloomer Miranda to leave that thermostat alone you all just don't want to freeze!That fire sounds really good too!So nice and cozy and warm!Mom is practically sitting on the heat box.It used to read 72 but now its down to 65 and the house is still warm but not as warm as it usually is!Mom doesn't have the heat on in the house only using the heat boxes,one in the tv room and one in the dining room and we are the only ones who get to have the wall heat on,and both bathrooms for fear of pipes freezing!Mom checked on Mario and he ate most of his yogurt,millet,pellet and pomegranate mix he just has a beakfull or two more to finish.You should've heard Candida do that wail of hers for being locked up in her cage while I was out with my daddy for dinner the other day!Then when Mom let her back out she attacked Mom and pulled her earring out and Mom nearly lost that one in her dinner!Candida already ate the stone from her first pair and Mom never found it anywhere,so she either ate it which Mom was none to happy about or it just disappeared to who knows where?
My Mamma can't wait to have her visit with your sweet awesome Mamma tonight,she always makes her day so much better!

We only wished we could all be there for your sweet Momma's special day!She could've been here with everyone on New Years and shared some of Nana's rum cake that Mom and skin sis bought for her birthday that she never got to have til then.Mom is gonna try and keep Candida in her condo until I have my turn with my daddy,but my daddy always requests that little brat to come out and dine with him!Oh how fresh is that Doo for snagging that chocolate caramel from your sweet Momma!And then to not give it back to her either and giving her quite the tussle to get it from his beak!I agree with you too,I'd rather have mashed taters or corn myself than that candy,although Bella just loves her licorice!This morning was a bright sunny day with the temperatures at 34 degrees with a highs of 40 and our lows of 17.The wind is really blowing out there making it feel really colder than it is.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages and fed us our warm bean mix and as soon as she was getting ready to start her house chores,Anthony showed up at the door and he spent the whole rest of the morning with Mom and part of the afternoon.Mom gave him some of the simple s'mores cake she and Shiloh made yesterday to eat while he was here and then she packed him a care package of all the things that she and Shiloh made yesterday.After he left Mom started getting some things done and is going to hopefully scrub both bathrooms tomorrow and wash the floors as they really need to be washed big time.Dad had all his men in work put the plows on all their trucks in anticipation of the snow we're supposed to get tomorrow and Wednesday and Friday,our temperatures are going to drop each day and on Thursday our daytime highs will be 14.Mom is giving me and Mario a little more of the aspirin on the days that we both are in greyter pain than usual and it sure is helping us both!Shiloh can't believe that the swelling has gone down on Mario's swollen joints and I no longer look like I have chubby legs and toes,I've been even licking my bowl clean of all the aspirin too,not a drop left behind there!Mario is just beginning to eat the Greek yogurt and Mom mixes in some millet and his fruity pellets that I share with him and he eats everything but a beakful each day.Mom is letting him keep his dish until 6 every night and then she pulls all food from his cage so he will have the night to empty his crop.He even comes down with greyt interest to get his snack of animal cracker each afternoon and eats that!

We are so wishing your wonderful amazing Mom a wonderful Birthday and I so hope that your daddy takes her out someplace special and gets her something really nice as she so deserves it!I'll bet she'll just love that wonderful surprise party you are going to have for her in your room today!You sure are right about this being a full month so far with every birdies hatchdays,Peepers was the 1st as he was a rescue and Mom really didn't know his true hatchday,Now just look at all the beautiful fids and parronts who were born/hatched in the month of January!Oh what a bad birdie that Miranda is messing with the thermostat like that!And then to bite your daddy really hard under the elbow,now that must've really hurt big time,quite near the funny bone too!
This morning was a dark,dismal,dreary rainy day here but the temperatures were up to 55 degrees and quite fairly warm eggcept for the strong winds that were blowing out there,it washed away all the snow we had last night,which made Mom happy and so far it hasn't dropped in temperature.Mom got us up and cleaned us all out and fed us our breakfast and then she made dad some sandwiches for his work and then as she was cleaning up more clutter skin sis came over and they both went down cellar and put in a wash and then they came back upstairs and started to do some baking.By the time they were done baking they had made fruity pebbles rice krispie treats,birthday cake cookies, simple s'mores cake and by the time they cleaned up everything and got the wash all dried and folded it was late afternoon and skin sis left to go home. Mom went upstairs to make up the bed with dad and now she just got out of her shower and is finally going to make dad the pizza he never got to eat last night because he had to go to work. But he did love the homemade beef stew that Mom made for him for his dinner last night.You should've seen that brat bird with dad tonight at the dinner table,cuddling with him and pushing her feathered butt up his arm and purring when he rubbed her head and gave her scritches,then she climbed up his shirt and snuggled close to his neck preening his hair and talking to him the whole time,Daddy's baby,now that's what I used to be before she came into our lives!Hmmmph!
Please give your sweet Momma big hugs from everyone here for her birthday including Nana,we want to hear that she had a greyt day out and a good dinner too!And lots of special presents!I'm sending you vote#963 today!

This morning started off as a bright sunny morning but quickly changed into dark skies and the temperature is at 34 right now and the highs only being 35 with the lows at 34 so far,its really cold out there! Mom got us up and fed and cleaned and spent time doing a good job in our room as she wasn't home all day yesterday and then after she got dad his breakfast and did some clutter control in the dining room she and dad both took down all the lights and the tree and got everything put away,all the plants got watered and cleaned up and put back where they were in the window and now we are just waiting to see what this weather is going to do as far as the snow that they are talking about. Mom will be home with us all day today and possibly tomorrow also which we are very happy about!
Mom gave Mario some of the Greek yogurt that she bought for him yesterday and sprinkled some millet over it so he would eat it and he came right down and took a miniscule taste of it and went right back up to his perch,he has to be hungry because he's had no food in his cage all night.Mom is going to leave the dish in his cage for a good part of the day because usually he likes to come down and eat later on,so hopefully he'll eat it,Mom took him off the meds and is only feeding him the aspirin as that is really helping him.You should see my ankles because of the aspirin I hardly have any swelling at all!Just my toes are twisted and I walk like I have a stump leg!Oh its way too cold to be in a cold room and I so hope your daddy will fix the thermostat in your room for you to make it warm.Mom put my acrylic cage back in front of the window so now I can have my view of the world outside back again.You just don't know how much those prayers mean to me and Mario and Mom and all of us here also!We are glad that Aunt Jeanne will be safe at home with Angel until all this messy weather we're supposed to have is gone!I can't wait til the summer comes again when we can all go back outside and have showers and sit in the warm sunshine to dry and go for walks with Mom!Until then I'm looking forward to snuggling with Mom tonight!
Wishing you a greyt day 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 And we're sending you vote #960 too!

This morning was a bright sunny day with the temperatures of 34 and our highs were 40 with our lows of 26.The wind was whipping around here and it was really freezing.Mom collected the trash and loaded it in the car then got the car warmed up and packed Dixie in his carrier and off they went to Nana's.When Mom got there she put the trash in the car and got Dixie settled in his cage there beside Trixie II and of they went to the dump first then to Walgreen's where Mom and Nana got some things for 75% off,Christmas lights,candy,and other things,then they went to the bank for Nana then to Falmouth to Shaws to get some sales on the groceries,Mom got some roast beef and cheese marked down and made some for my dad's dinner tonight,she made him a roast beef sub and he really loved it!Then they went to an organic and natural food store and Mom picked up some millet for Mario. Then it was late in the afternoon and at 3:30pm Mom and Nana went back to her house and Nana made them a salad for lunch with some salsa and chips.Then Mom got ready to go home as it was starting to get dark and she packed up Dixie and cleaned his cage and they left for home.Once she got home she made dinner for dad and dad had already fed us our snacks and Mom cleaned out our cages and put all the stuff away she bought today and now she's trying to catch up with our social life and we are always the ones who have to wait til last!
Mom never got to see the rest of the Three Stooges as she wound up too comfortable with snuggling with me and Candi was up her sleeve and Mom had no idea how long she was sleeping there but she jumped up at 5 am,put us all in our cages and went to bed.Mom got the greek yogurt with pineapples and coconut in it for Mario and she'll give him some tomorrow,she has taken him off the Enro and the Nystatin and will try the yogurt tomorrow morning and hopefully that will help him some!How dare your daddy ignore you when you wanted to have some frozen yogurt!I love that stuff and its a good thing that your sweet Momma gave you some special treats and the scricthes and the almonds and peanuts were better anyway!Candida didn't get a chance to be bad to me today because Mom had me in my cage while she dined with dad.Mom is going to see if I can be out tomorrow if dad is still here by then with all this horrid weather!Mario is very quiet and does alot of sleeping and Mom is gonna put him back on the aspirin starting tomorrow as that was really helping him with his pain!Mom has read that before also on the Lutino mutations and how they are much weaker in fighting off sickness than their normal counterparts.But Mom will never give up on him!He's got to make it to his hatchday on the 19th.When Mario was a baby he almost died from a gut infection and Mom got him back to the breeder just in time,he brought him to the hospital and was on meds for weeks,his frother died who Nana's friends daughter had back then.Mario got through that he's got to get through this too!We

Didn't we have lots of fun and I just thought our parrot confetti was just the bestest ever!Oh,what an awesome breakfast you had of ham omelets and waffles too and for you all to get some of that buffet is like a food dream come true!My dad told Mom that the Three Stooges thing was a Massachusetts thing they have every year here on NYE.And here Mom thought it was all over!Yeah you would think your sweet Momma would have enough with work and would want to leave it all at work!If that brat bird Pineapple does that to me again I will scream my loudest GCC alarm call for you to come and rescue me so you can teach her a thing or two!
This morning was another cold but bright sunny day here for us the highs supposed to be 34 but we never saw it go any further than 32 degrees with our lows to be 30.We had a strong breeze that sent the cold right through you.Mom got us up fairly early and cleaned our cages and fed us then tried to get as much of her chores done as she could do before she and dad left to meet Nana and the skin sibs for lunch at Asia,one of their favorite Chinese restaurants .When they got there there was no one in the restaurant for nearly a half hour and it was really quiet and they all had a nice lunch eating singapore noodles,sesame chicken,chicken chow main,with dry noodles,brown rice,chicken fried rice and veggie delight.Then after they left the restaurant they went back to Nana's house and had some coffee and rum cake after they just hung out for awhile and digested.The rum cake was really good considering it came from BJ's.They had red velvet coffee to go with it!We were all very upset with Mom first for not taking us with her and then for her to have the nerve to leave us in the darkness for so long!At least we had the radio,but still to be left in the dark with the curtains wide open is not our idea of a good time.We are glad that both Mom and dad are back now and we are now waiting for Mom to get done with what she has to do in order for us to have our snuggle time with her!Mom is running around here trying to make more sandwiches up for dad,Saturday and Sunday are looking to be snow filled and then a rain changeover and if the temperatures drop it could be treacherous and my dad could be running out to save the town!So Mom has to make sure she's got enough sandwiches ready to throw in his lunch box cooler and the coffee at the ready!Those Kcups are flying out the door now that he has a new Keurig at work!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and a wish for a very happy and healthy New year in 2015!Loving you always and forever,Dixie! Oh and vote#956 for you!

  Hi Cookie
We got up to another bright sunny but frigid morning at 19 degrees.Mom hurriedly got us all cleaned and fed and then got ready for skin sis to come with Nana to pick Mom up.Mom,Nana and skin sis went to Dennis to Benny's and they all got some marked down winter things there and some cleaning items,Mom got dad some slipper socks for a dollar that he likes that he keeps wearing out,and some cleaner then they went to Ring Bros grocery there and looked around but didn't find what they were looking for,then they had lunch at Jason's where the waiter knows them who is a very pleasant guy,they all had linguine with veggie soup and coffee,then they went back to Hyannis to Shaws grocery store where Mom and Nana both found some good things marked down for dinner to eat,then they went to the dollar store,and BJ's where Mom got 5 tubs of 5pounds of Country Crock margarine as she was all out as she uses it for baking etc.She bought Nana a nice rum cake there for her birthday as Nana never got to have a cake for her birthday so they will have that tomorrow after their New Years Chinese Lunch and they bought a big pack of little eclairs to split between the two of them.Then skin sis dropped Mom off and all her packages and left with Nana to go home. Mom is going to make Dixie a Hatch Day cake for his special day today and put all kinds of good things in it for him.Mom has to go out one more time as soon as Dad gets home and then they're both home for the night with us to snuggle and keep warm.Its so biting cold out there and a very good night to stay home and snuggle up close!
Our highs for the day are 31 and we are at 16 right now and our lows will be 14.BRRRR!!!
What is it with these pineapple brat birds anyway?Candida just pulled out Mom's earring again and she had to waste time looking for it and making sure Candida didn't eat it!And I was allowed out on the dining table tonight for dinner as it was my special day and she kept running after me as I was taking some linguine from dad's bowl to eat and while I was eating she came and beat the crap outta me so Mom had to move me and my linguine to the big playgym!She thinks she owns my dad and the dining table!Thank you for the wonderful Hatchday song!You have the sweetest voice ever!The 3 Stoogers are on tonight starting at 8pm on channel 14 here,it goes til one am.Mom was only so happy that your wonderful Mom enjoyed talking to her!She will always be there for her as will our whole family!Lets get those noisemakers and get this party started!

  Hi Cookie
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the temperatures at 25.Its so cold and really feels like winter now after all the warmer 40's that we've been having.Our highs today are supposed to be 29 with our lows being 22.Its 28 right now and still freezing even though the sun is out nice and brightly.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and fed us and then just as she was getting ready to vacuum our room and house Anthony came over and spent some time with Mom and she gave him some money to pay his rent again,he had the money to pay his insurance with,Mom is hoping he can get back on his feet soon so she won't have to go broke trying to keep up with her bills and his!
My dad finally got his car back late yesterday afternoon and it was a corroded battery cable and they cleaned that and tightened some loose wires and it was $100.00 most of which was the towing charge.Dad is happy and so is Mom now that she has her car back!
While Anthony was visiting with Mom and playing with our baby fister Candida Mom cleaned out more of the clutter that was in her paid bill box on the table.Now she just has to get the vacuuming done before my dad comes home.
Oh that little pineapple brat bird taking a bath in the Brita water pitcher like that and then snuggling all soaking wet inside Aunt Jeanne's shirt like that after first making sure she has some delicious conure tasting water to drink!Oh does that really sound good with all that food,cream puffs and egg nog and the champagne toast!It sure sounds like my 22nd hatchday will be everything I had dreamed it to be with you all there sharing in my special day,there's no better way to have a hatch day than to spend it with those you love so much!Mom will be gone all day tomorrow but she will be ours for the night to snuggle with me and dad on the couch and watching the Three Stooges Marathon.And watching the ball drop if Mom can keep her eyes open wide enough!Mom just put Mario in the acrylic cage so he can be with us in the tv room till he gets his meds for the night and he threw up all over Mom while she brought him in!Mom is getting so frustrated because some days he does so go while others he's throwing up!She's going to get the yogurt tomorrow when she goes out on her errand runs!Mom can't wait for your awesome Mom's call and visit,she's been looking forward to it so much!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and vote#952 for you!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  HNY sweet Cookie, from Angel Christy
Winter has arrived in full force today, it is bitter cold, and well below zero with the wind chills! Dad had a great time with his old friends yesterday, but he is back to work for us today!

We don't seem to have any NYE pics for our profile pages, but as your year ends, we want to wish all our friends the very best of everything in 2015! Please give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...
