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
Thank you for liking my derby portrait!Mom is going to keep me on the Enro for at least two weeks and the Ofloxacin til next week also.She's hoping that the swelling in my eye will go down by then.Mom hates having me on the Enro but she doesn't know what else to do.The vet didn't do much else than what Mom is doing now.Oh you just don't know just how much my Mom just loved her visit with Aunt Tanya last night!She feels so relieved to know that you're all okay there,we were all so worried about you!I would love to know what normal is anyway!Mom gives Aunt Tanya so much credit for taking on such an angry Zon like that!It's bad enough that she's been getting bitten by Josh and maybe Blue and then attacked by any of you trying to get to her butt or crocks or rip her glasses off,she doesn't need anymore of that kind of abuse!How can Merlin's Mom tell Aunt Tanya that he needs meat and some chicken bones and not contribute anything to getting them for him while Aunt Tanya is buying him new toys and giving him a good diet and a special room in the Hotel Conurefornia!You just can't do better than that!That's the best room in the whole place!Oh you silly little Kookie Bird,you had me laughing so hard along with my Mom when you told me that you made sure you pooped down the front of your daddy's shirt so he could see it all and clean it up!And since you pooped down the front of his shirt did he think you sprayed it down his back also like you've got a contortionist body and could twist yourself around like that?You have such a funny daddy!My Mom only has the regular house plants still inside and she's waiting for the weather to get warmer before she puts them out on the deck for the summer.It sounds like Aunt Tanya is like my Mom,she has to make sure that our room is swept up first and then she'll vacuum it for extra cleanliness I guess!It sure sounds like Papa is doing good and he's so lucky that he has Aunt Tanya to do his birdiecures.
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 50,the lows of 41 and right now it's 50.Mom got dad off to work and then got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and gave Dixie his antibiotics and his eye drops.Mom had to chase Candida again from the Bird Room to the dining room and back over 13 times.I think she got her exercise for the day.Mom finally had to grab her off the toy hook on the play gym,and shut our door so she couldn't go back out to the play gym in the dining room.Candida thinks she should be free and uncaged all day!Then we got our bean mix.Mom is going to get the trash ready and the recyclables packed in the car to take to the dump tomorrow.It's going to be another boring day with nothing interesting going on and Mom working on her chores and we're just so happy about that.Mom is still tired from the long day she had yesterday and is going in slow motion today.We are happy because Mom is home with us all day.When will it be warm all the time so we can go outside and enjo

  Hi Kookie
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 51 the lows of 37 and right now at 7:00pm its 51 and still sunny out there.Mom got dad off to work and then she got some things done and then got us up super early,8:00am and cleaned our cages,swept our room and gave Dixie his antibiotics and Ofloxacin for his eye.Then she left to go to Nana's.Nana finished getting our cousins ready and then they got in Mom's car and went to E.Falmouth to pick up skin sis.What a nightmare it was having to go miles and miles out of the way just to get a few minutes down the road.There's construction going on everywhere in Falmouth and the detours are so long and all around creation.They went to Friendly's for breakfast and got the half priced breakfast which was too big for Mom and Nana to finish.Two eggs,Two slices of ham,Nana got bacon,and two pancakes.Skin sis got sausages and Brioche.From there they went to Falmouth Pet where Nana got some dried fruit for our cousins and the girls there wanted to know if we knew of anyone who wanted a B&G macaw.Mom was talking to him and he took a nut from her but the second time Mom offered him a peanut he nearly took her finger off!The girls said that he had been with his former home for over 35 years and the wife died and the husband couldn't keep him anymore as the Macaw started attacking him,the macaw hates men.And he loves the girl who works at the store but then he has his days where he wants to attack her too!From there they went to Dollar Tree and then Christmas Tree Shops and then Stop&Shop and CVS.Skin sis wanted to go to DQ so they went there and she bought them all Blizzards.Mom had one with fruit in it.From there Mom dropped skin sis back to her apartment as she had to go to PT and she took Nana home and had some tea with her and then left as it was 5:00pm.When she got home dad helped her unpack her car and then load it with all the stuff that skin sis left for the trash and donation places they worked on the other day.Then Mom made dinner for dad(Mac'N'Cheese)cleaned the dishes,our cages and then put all the stuff she got away.She brought some stuff out for the CawCaws to eat,dad had brought them the stuff that Nana brought home for them earlier.Now finally,Mom is here to help us get our notes out!Mom is so tired from driving around all day!

  Hi Kookie
Now I agree with you that shredding papers have to be done by beak not by some goofy machine!I think that you're so cool that you can work on that shishkabob thingy and get it outta the wrapper its in!Oh how we wish that we could get back outside again and go for a walk with Mom in our stroller!We had that one nice day on Friday and Mom was gone all day and we missed being out in the sunshine!That Doo is really gross wanting to touch anything that comes from the garden eggcept for the fresh fruit and veggies.YUCK!Who wants to touch stones and mulch!Teal'c sounds like Candida,she goes to the kitchen sink now and while Mom is washing dishes,she pulls the dish outta Mom's hand so she can hog the faucet!She stands on the counter and puts her head under the faucet and lets the water run over her head,then she gets the water everywhere,the counter,the floor and all over Mom too.Then she flies to my dad and lands on his shoulder and wipes her face all over him with the ice cold water she had been bathing in!Josh and Blue are gonna be in for a treat with Conure water!
This morning was a dark rainy cold morning with the highs for the day of 48 the lows of 40 and right now its 43 and raining.After Mom got dad off to work she got us all up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us our bean mix.Then she scrubbed both bathrooms and gave Dixie his antibiotics and eye drops.Other than washing the floors and vacuuming and working on trying to put all the junk Mom and Shiloh got out of the spare room packed in her car,and some other chores its going to be another boring dark day here.But at least it will keep Mom home with us all day again.Another uneventful day here but we're happy about that.We never know what's going to happen around here with people popping in unexpectedly like yesterday afternoon Anthony came and stayed for several hours and then Shiloh came over at 7:30pm to pick up her big game table from the sun room.

  Hi Kookie
So it looks like you are gonna be living with your house guest for a few more weeks.I'll bet they would rather stay at the Hotel Conurfornia than to have to go home!The view is just perfect and the accommodations couldn't be any better!I'm so happy to know that your awesome Mom is all right,its cool that you got out today to spend time with your daddy.Mom is hoping to get her garden planted sometime soon but she's gotta get my dad to clean it up for her,its still too cold to plant anything here.Mom is hoping to get the rest of her houseplants outside on the deck soon as the weather cooperates with us here.That silly CUBird laying more eggs,she's not the Easter Bunny or is she?LOL!
This morning was a cloudy morning with some sun with our highs for the day of 58 the lows of 39 and its 52 right now.Mom got dad off to work and then got us up,cleaned our cages and swept our room and gave us our bean mix.Dixie got his eye meds and his antibiotics and Mom had to chase Candida back and forth from the dining room to the Bird Room about 10 times as she refused to be put back in her cage to have her breakfast.Mom chopped up the broccoli she bought the other day so it will be ready to use and other than finishing up on some chores she never got to yesterday its going to be another boring day here and you know we don't mind those days at all!
Skin bro just left.He came over around 1:20pm when Mom was getting ready to scrub the bathrooms and so she had to stop and give him some lunch and he left to go pick up his belt he forgot at Nana's house when he was doing laundry over there yesterday. Mom can't wait to talk to your awesome Mom tomorrow night!

Mom and all of us here were so worried about you and your wonderful Momma there!Mom tried to call you last night but left a message.We are so relieved to hear back from you again.How interesting to have Merlin speaking Chinese to you,do you really understand what he's saying to you?Oh Merlin will just love being in Hotel Conurefornia,that is the best room in the whole house with quite a view!When you go to Hotel Conurefornia the Birdovision was the best there ever!We loved the view of the backyard and the woods behind them.How awesome that you got some dad time in and got to have a nice visit with Aunt Jeanne!It was Celine's 18th hatchday yesterday,it looks like the only young ones here are Candida and TrixieII.We have all really missed you so much and my Mom and all of us thank you for the package you sent.Nana says thank you for the dry mouth mints and I thank you for my meds.Please let us know how Aunt Tanya is doing!Trixie says to thank you for the hatchday wishes she sends you all her love and wing hugs and beakie kisses!

Oh that bed really sounds like it would be so time consuming to figure out how to fix it!Mom never realized that those things can break!But I guess with all the moving parts etc and whatever goes on from the inside things can really wear out after awhile!Your sweet Mama sounds like mine,the minute something is moved where she can't normally move or reach to clean its getting cleaned like she made the plumber wait while she cleaned under the dishwasher spot when they took it out to put the new one in!It sounds like Doo was saving up his feathers to make sure every birdie stayed warm in case the power went off with his feather collection!That must've been fun to see Petey get a bath and share a bath with your daddy!Now us fids are dirty or smelly so we can get in the bed any time at all without leaving the fresh clean sheets messy,as long as we don't poop on them!LOL!Oh Mom did that yesterday,had to recycle in the rain and as soon as she got outta her car to grab all the bags it just dumped on her,she looked like a drowned rat when she went to the bank with Nana to do Shiloh's banking business.And it kept raining all day long while they were out running errands and grocery shopping.All the groceries were wet just taking them out to the car and trying to pack them in the trunk!Poor Aunt Tanya having to deal with all these changes with work.It really sounds interesting to work at the parrot sanctuary!Mom would feel so bad for all those poor babies and want to take them all home with her!My Mom is hoping to get the spring stuff on their bed tomorrow,she had wanted to do laundry but it looks like its gonna rain and snow tomorrow as well and more of the white stuff on Monday and into Tuesday.Mom has to take Nana to the eye drs on Tuesday and she's so nervous taking Nana out in anymore snow or icy conditions,the temperature is supposed to drop here also.Some spring!I'll bet Moggie is going to teach those new boarders of yours how to run an airport and keep it running smoothly!I only wish I was there to watch you chase Petey around back to his crate!You're really good at herding him right proper back to where he belongs!Hey Charlie is pretty good for an old fart conure doing what he's told to do!
This morning was another dark dull,dismal,dreary heavily pouring rainy day here with our temperatures highs for the day of 49 the lows of 38 and right now its 48.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages,fed us our warm bean mix and swept our room then got dad his breakfast and the coffee going.Then skin bro came over to pay Mom back the money she lent him on Wednesday.He came in and played with Candida and said hello to Dixie before he left to go to Nana's to do his laundry and to take her to church later on. Mom vacuumed the house and got the TV room straightened out and is going to work on getting more chores done in the house,so it will be a quiet day here with nothing of any interest going on.Another nice quiet boring day here but then that's just the way we

  Hi Kookie
Poor Mandy with that awful bite that Doo gave her mangling her finger like that and scarring her for life.Mom can testify that Doo will bit your butt or your elbow without you even knowing it and make you jump a mile not in pain but in surprise and shock!Oh does Mom know about that Moggie for sure!He's like Candida and refuses to get back into his condo!Candida makes Mom chase her all over the house and dad has to take her into the bathroom so Mom can close the door on her and catch her in the darkened bathroom.Oh how awful that everyone got fired without any health care benefits.I agree with you that why would Aunt Tanya want to have a snake in your house with you all?Does that sound promising that the original owners bought the pharmacy back?But it does sound a bit complicated at the same time.One good thing is that she will be home with you much earlier and Mom and all of us here are hoping that they haven't got the building all padlocked up tight and that they will have computers still in there to do business with!Its so good to hear that Aunt Tanya can still laugh about the whole mess at work!
This morning was another bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 60 and the lows of 53 and right now at noon time its 64!It would probably be warmer if the wind wasn't blowing so hard out there.It's really beautiful out there except for that awful wind!Mom got us all up and fed us our bean mix and cleaned our cages,she had to work longer on Candida's cage again as she really tore it apart and chewed through all the papers and cardboard Mom has down on her grate,she even chewed the box Mom put down for her to chew on instead of the grate coverings.Mom really had to sweep our room good especially under our cage as the debris was piled up on the side of the wheels of our cage by the wall side.Candida always has the cage tray filled with chewed up confetti she makes from the cardboard and paper!Mom is home with us all day today and will be working on the chores that never got done yesterday and writing out some bills and getting them in the mail.Skin sis called Mom last night and told her the surgeon took her stitches out and she will be able to drive a little at a time now and she'll be starting PT soon.She will still be needing her crutches and walker for a little while longer.Other than Mom finishing up some chores today it will be another nice uneventful day here for us and you won't hear us complaining about that!

  had lunch and Nana made some coffee and they had coffee and dessert before Mom left to go home.When Mom came home she made dad his dinner and she cleaned out our cages for the night.Candida made a big mess in her cage as usual.Nana sent us home some mixed fresh fruit and we had that while dad was eating his dinner of Mac'n'Cheese with garlic seasoning.After the dishes were cleaned up Mom got a chance to finally come in and help us with our notes.She promised us that on Friday we can go with her to Nana's house.

Oh did my Mom ever have such a wonderful time visiting with Aunt Tanya!Dixie giggles when Kookie tells him that his parronts slept in Hotel Conurefornia last night!How awful that your sweet daddy's side of the sleep number bed blew a hose like that!Man was the bed trying to tell him something?How awful to have only lasted 11 years!I think I agree with Aunt Tanya that it had to have been Petey's farts that blew up the hose!Its really good that your daddy knows what he's doing when pulling apart that bed!I sure do hope the parts come in fast for them!Oh yeah it sure is so pleasant in Hotel Conurefornia with the morning light and those awesome corner windows and the wonderful view of the back yard.Mom had taken lots of pics of it but now that all her pics of our trip there are lost she has to rely on her memory of how wonderful things were there with you.We agree,we loved our room there high on the shelf so we can see out the windows and enjoy the country like quietness there!Oh it sure sounds like you're gonna have a full house there once again and you'll be keeping Aunt Tanya on her toes from getting bitten and nipped at.I'll bet Merlin will want to commiserate with Elvis and get all the ins and outs of life there with you all.I wonder if Moggie will try to fly to his condo and check him out?I'll bet its a fun tiel whistling match between Moggie and Sunny and Gracie every morning!
This morning was a bright sunny morning but cold it did warm up later on though.Our highs for the day are 48 the lows are 40 and right now at 5:30pm its 46.After Mom got dad off to work she got us up early and cleaned our cages and fed us our bean mix with Cherry juice and peaches then swept our room.Mom then got skin sis's money she needed for Mom to go to the bank for her and the money that skin bro wanted her to take to Western Union for him to pay a bill and then took off to Nana's house.Once she got there she had breakfast with Nana and tea then Mom helped Nana find something she was looking for but never found it.Then they left to run errands for everyone,and when she got to Stop&Shop to send out the money for Western Union,the clerk at the customer service center told Mom to take a form to fill out first and when Mom came back to have it processed the clerk wouldn't let her do it.So she had to tell skin bro he had to come and do it himself.Mom and Nana checked out what was on sale but didn't find anything they really needed so they left.Then they went to Baer's pet shop and the CAG there was talking saying Hello and carrying on a conversation.Mom and Nana went to see the resident Amazon and she was sleeping.They didn't have anything there that my cousins would eat so they left and went back to Nana's where Nana made them lunch and while that was cooking both Mom and Nana cleaned out some stuff that was in Nana's sun room,she had wanted to get rid of a lot of junk she had there that wasn't being used.Mom kept watch on the lunch while they were out there.Then they

  Hi Kookie
Oh how awful that your parronts didn't get to go on their picnic because of this lousy weather!It was a fairly nice day here on Easter Sunday,sunny and in the high 40's or so.Charlie has to be crazy to fly over to Doo's condo with that huge beak of his,one chomp on Charlie's toes and he's a goner!You definitely don't need a polly podiatrist!Those toys have to be so awesome that your incredible Mom made you!I'll bet they're so much fun to play with and destroy!I'll bet Doo and the Grey girls are so happy to have their boxes back!Mom gave Candida some boxes and she's chewing them up instead of the cage papers and cardboard she has on her grate.Mom is hoping that Candida will keep liking these boxes as it keeps her from making such a big mess and for Mom to take a much longer time to clean her cage out.Mom had to do a birdiecure on Candida's nails,she was pinching my dad with them.Mom just did her nails two weeks ago,then she went and tried to do my nails,I kept pulling my toes back on her so she had to try with the nail file and was filing her own nails at the same time.My nails are all thick and twisted to the side and deformed so its hard for Mom to get them properly,Mom needs help with me but she keeps trying to do it on her own,I keep crying when she has to pull my nails enough to see them without hurting me.But it hurts me anyway for her to twist them so she can see them.Oh I forgot to tell you that my Mom just loves that peppermint and lavender stuff Aunt Tanya made up for her.She sprays it everywhere that the ants are coming on the walls and on the baseboards.It smells awesome and it kills the ants too.My Mom is so looking forward to her visit with your amazing Mom tonight!

  Hi Kookie
Oh how wonderful that you got a new toy that your awesome Momma made for you!I love those recycled toys,Mom usually tries to do that for us also but Candida usually demolishes all her toys so there's nothing to take from them!Ohhh Nooo!Not that FeatherIn stuff again!I'm glad that Baldrick got it too so you wouldn't be the only one!You had us all rolling on the floor laughing so hard!What is it about your daddy's shirts that makes you have to poop all over him?I'll bet he's none too happy about that at all!Did Aunt Jeanne take Angel down with her?We weren't there either,Mom dropped us off early before she left but by the time they got back from Easter Vigil services it was near 9:30pm and my dad was hungry so he went and got some subs so they were eating at 10:00pm and we missed all the milonga anyway.
This morning was a sunless dull,dismal,dreary cold day.The highs for the day will be 41 the lows of 34 and its 41 right now.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and made fresh bean mix for us so we had to wait to eat breakfast.While that was cooking she made dad his breakfast and got the coffee going and then our breakfast was cooled off enough for us to eat.Mom put in a big load of laundry as my dad needed socks for work next week and then Mom is trying to bake something else to bring to Nana's for tomorrow.She has to plan an early dinner as Easter Vigil services are at 7:00pm and she doesn't want to have dinner at 9:00pm when she gets home.We may be late for the Milonga but Mom will drop us off before she leaves so at least we'll be there silently but we'll be there til she can get back to the computer.Its going to be a very busy weekend as Mom and dad have to leave early tomorrow in order to get to the restaurant in time for breakfast with Nana,skin bro and they have to pick up skin sis as she can't drive yet.Skin bro will be coming with the Parronts and Mom isn't sure if he's going to meet them here or if they have to go and pick him up at his place.We may not be able to be on BC til later on at night depending on when they will be coming home from Nana's house.Its going to be a very busy day here today and tomorrow and Mom is trying to get all our notes done early so we can get to the Milonga sometime tonight.

Oh how romantic that sounds a picnic in the woods but they should take you with them!Now how awesome is that to have Aunt Jeanne come and give you lots of butt rubs!I love having my butt rubbed and my wings and back too!We sure don't want CuBird laying anymore of those eggs and what a weird sound she made while the broom was out.
This morning was a dark dreary dismal morning with the highs for the day of 55 lows of 38 and at 6:30pm it's 52 and pouring rain.Mom got us all up this morning and cleaned our cages,swept our room and then fed us our bean mix.We stayed home with our dad.Then she got dad his breakfast and the coffee started.She packed the trash in the car along with the recyclables and then took off to Nana's.When she got there she got all the trash and recyclables in Nana's car and then Nana made them both breakfast.Then both Nana and Mom got into Nana's car and they took off for the dump.It was already starting to rain.Mom got all the recyclables dumped and then the trash and then they took off to go to Falmouth for the last Stations of the Cross.On the way there it really started to down pour so hard that Mom could barely see out the window.The road had huge puddles within minutes.Then when they got to the church it was crowded and all the close spots were taken.When they got out Mom was in the parking lot waiting to leave and a big huge SUV that was in the parking space was backing out right at her.Mom was panicking trying to find the horn and a lady who was walking to her car was waving frantically and yelling to this person to stop!Mom was a nano second away from getting smashed.Then when they were on their way back to Mashpee a guy shot right out of a side street which made Mom slam on her brakes.Mom was so nervous driving with all the nuts out there.They finally made it back to Mashpee and went to Stop&Shop and bought some sale items,pizza for $3.33 each,strawberries for $1.77 for a 16oz package,Mom bought 3,a package of mixed fresh fruit,zucchini and yogurt fruit dip,then they went back to Nana's and dropped off the groceries and got into Mom's car and went to get gas.Mom pumped the gas herself and now the gas is $1.94 a gallon for regular.Then they went to Roche Bros.grocery and Mom got some chocolate waffles on sale and a few other things.From there they went back to Nana's and as it was 3:30pm and they didn't have lunch,Nana made them a salad and toast.Mom left shortly after and when she got home she unpacked the groceries while dad unloaded the car for her,then she made dad his dinner and cleaned up the dirty dishes that my dad left in the sink for her from his breakfast and lunch.Mom is happy to be home and not driving anymore!Its a nice wet rainy night and good for snuggling and Mom will be snuggling with us as soon as she's done with our notes.

Oh it was so good to hear from Aunt Tanya as my Mom was so worried about her.That had to be so upsetting to have those back to back drs appointments on Tuesday and Wednesday!How wonderful to hear that her big suture came out and Mom can only imagine just how wonderful it must feel for her now!What's with that Doo lately?That wasn't very nice of him to give poor Aunt Tanya a nasty bite like that!Oh Nooo!Not those silly googly goggles again?Moggie is so clever,even Mom knows not to mess with him.She even tried to entice him into going back in his condo when they were all going out that day with your daddy but he wouldn't budge and tried to bite Mom!We are so hoping that they will find a good home soon.Poor Aunt Tanya with more mouths to feed and clean up after!At least they are being a bit more civil to Aunt Tanya and they have to know that she loves them and is providing for them.How sweet of your dad to go and visit with them every morning!
This morning was a beautiful sunny day but as the morning wore on the sun disappeared and its now cloudy and dark looking like rain.The highs for the day are 44 with the lows of 41 and its 43 right now.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages,then fed us our bean mix and then got dad his breakfast and the coffee going.Then she swept our room and got ready to go out with dad to the bank to cash their tax return checks.Mom can't cash them without dad being there with her even though his signatures are on the checks.They went to dad's work first to get his pay check so they could do all that at once.Then dad filled his car up with gas at the going rate of $1.91 a gallon for regular gas.The gas prices are on the rise again.When Mom and dad came home,Mom scrubbed down the kitchen sink and bleached it out then collected the trash to bring to the dump tomorrow and got the recyclables in her car.It's going to be a wonderful uneventful day here today again and we're happy about that.Mom will be busy doing chores around the house as she'll be out all day again tomorrow and the weekend is a lost cause with Easter Vigil services on Saturday night and then Easter breakfast and spending time at Nana's on Easter Sunday so nothing will be getting done on those days.Mom spent the afternoon making anise biscotti for Easter and an orange coconut cake.I can't wait to taste test them both for her!Anthony came over tonight sometime after dinner to get a check he'd been waiting for for a long time.He grabbed it and ran back out to get it cashed at WalMart in Falmouth.Mom is off and running tomorrow with Nana to the dump and to the last Stations of the Cross in Falmouth right across the street from Shiloh.Mom may take me with her and leave Candida home with my dad.

  Hi Kookie
Oh how both Mom and I have missed you and Aunt Tanya so very much.Mom was so upset she missed Aunt Tanya's call,she can't understand how she did that unless she had run to the bathroom and never heard the phone!Bad Mom for not taking the phone with her like she usually does!Aunt Tanya is right that's what we do and unless you are brought to the potty beforehand you have no choice but to poop where you are at the moment!And why didn't he give you scritches when you were asking him to for?My daddy gives Candida lots of them whenever she puts her feathered butt up his arm for him to do so!Oh how awful that Sunny and Gracie's Mom fell for that bird keeper's lung thing.They tried to do that to Mom years ago when she wound up in the hospital,now Mom refuses to tell anyone she has any pets because they trapped her with being interested in us when she told them she had us.They too were trying to blame that same thing on us too!I'll bet they are enjoying Hotel Conurefornia!We all just loved that room with the bright sunshine coming through and the awesome view!Mom has been asking around here if anyone(bird person only)would like a pair of tiels but so far no reply.Mom wishes she could take them in but right now with me constantly needing care and Candida so jealous of any birdie getting near our daddy that's outta the question for now.We are so happy to hear that your daddy is finally feeling better with his oral surgery situation and hope he's back to 100%.Does it sound like Aunt Tanya will be so busy with yet another fid to care for!I'll bet Elvis will be interested to know that there will be another Zon living in your house for a while!
This morning was a cold dark snowy morning,the highs for the day 39 the lows of 30 and right now its 32.It was snowing all morning and into the afternoon and finally at 1:00pm the sun is finally shining or trying to come out.The big snowfall we were supposed to get never really amounted to much.We barely got about 3 inches of snow,everything is once again all white,the lawns and roof tops,etc but at least it will be warmer this week and everything should be melting. Mom got us up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us our bean mix.Mom made out some bills to get in the mail and then she got a call from our dad and he came home.Mom made him an omelet with cheese and pan fried toast and he went to bed to catch up on the sleep he didn't get all last night but before he did he came in and said hello to us and told us he'd be back to have dinner with us and snuggle all night.Mom will spend the rest of the day catching up on some chores.We are all so happy that she's home all day with us.It's going to be a glorious boring day and that's just the way we like it!Mom said all day tomorrow and Wednesday she's gonna take the phone with her even in the bathroom,she refuses to miss another call from Aunt Tanya.She was gonna call her on Saturday and then my dad went to bed and then yesterday he was out the door because of th

  car and brought her mail in.Mom called skin sis from there as she had left a message for Mom on Nana's answering machine telling Mom what happened to her.She had gone into Roxbury to see the surgeon but was sent to Brookline to his office and she got the hole that was tearing away from her surgery site packed and gauze covered over it.She has to go back in a few weeks and her PT was cancelled because it was the PT that opened up the surgery site by the PT having her stand on her toes and do leg raises etc.Mom came home after collecting Dixie and dad helped to unload her car and she put the groceries away,skin bro called her and she made dinner for dad all at the same time.Then she cleaned Candida's cage,she made a big mess out of it and tore it all apart,Dad gave her a snack and fed her pellets,Mom washed the dishes and made dad more sandwiches for his lunch at work.Now finally Mom can sit down and work on some of our notes as long as BC doesn't make it take longer by giving us the error page etc.

  Hi Kookie
Oh did my Mom so enjoy her visit with your awesome Mom last night also!My Mom knows just what Aunt Tanya is feeling in her heart as she has done the same thing for years when she had to give up her babies she bred and raised.Mom so agrees that people should never get a bird and then when they can't deal with the noise or the mess we make,or the expense of vet visits,toys we need etc and then decide to dump them any where at all it so sickens her.How wonderful that you got some new toys and Moggie got his Moggie Mix!Mom will never forget how she had tried to get him into his condo and he refused and looked at her like she came from space.Moggie sure is the boss of himself and no one can tell him what to do!LOL!That was really so rude for Elvis to fly out at Aunt Tanya's head and taking of a bit of her scalp.She's there to help give him a good clean cage and good food and he does that in thanks?Not nice at all!
This morning was a dark,dull,dismal,dreary rainy morning.The highs for the day of 46 lows of 23 and its 32 at 7:00pm.Mom got dad off to work and then she came in and got us up,cleaned our cages and swept our room and fed us our bean mix,then she got Dixie and put him in his carrier and they took off to Nana's while Candida cried her sad wailing cries.Mom promised to take her with them on Friday.When Mom got to Nana's she got Dixie settled in his cage there and brought him down to The Bird Room to be with Bella and Trixie II.Nana had some hamburger ready for Dixie's breakfast and did he love that!Nana told Mom that skin sis was trying to get a hold of her as she had to go to the hospital to get her infected surgery site looked at by the surgeon and Mom had been stuck in all kinds of traffic and a large funeral that was going on across the street from Nana's street.There were cars everywhere and policeman directing traffic getting in and out of Nana's street,the place was so full of cars that they were parking across the street on Nana's street.Then there was a UPS tractor trailer broken down on the side of the road holding up traffic.Mom and Nana took off in Mom's car and went to the Bank first for Nana,then to the gas station for Mom to fill her car up as she was running on fumes.Mom pumped the gas herself and she filled up for $13.86.Gas was $1.69 with her Stop&Shop rewards card.Then from Mashpee they headed out to Hyannis where they went to The Mall to Sears where Nana finally got a cell phone.From there they went to Shaws/Star Market grocery to pay the EverSource (electric)bill and they looked around and got some good buys on frozen soup.From there they went to Town Hall so Mom could pay her excise tax bill and from there they went to RiteAid where Nana got a cane bottom for her cane,one of those footed ones.From there they went back to Mashpee and ate at Asia a Chinese restaurant,Mom had Hunan Chicken and Nana had Paradise Chicken.From there they went back to Nana's where they had some coffee and Mom unloaded Nana's groceries from the

Mom will be home with us all day today as long as nothing comes up to have her take off.She will be catching up on the chores she never got to do all weekend because of having to go out.Other than that its going to be another boring uneventful day here with nothing interesting going on,but we don't mind it at all,anything that keeps Mom home is fine with us.
Skin bro dropped by after work while Mom was starting to wash the dishes and he signed his tax forms so that Dad can take them up to the IRS office so that they can be processed.He was too late to see the apartment in Falmouth so he stopped in Hyannis and put in for a two level apartment there.Hyannis is not the place to be.Mom had just made brownies and they were hot out of the oven and she gave skin bro some to take home.Skin bro stayed for an hour and then left to go home.

  Hi Kookie
It sounds like Aunt Tanya had a very busy weekend like my Mom had here.How wonderful that that Mamma Bird had her 88th birthday and celebrated their 68th wedding anniversary!That is so awesome and amazing in today's world!That is really true love!You can tell just how special Aunt Tanya is when those two Toos just sat and perched on her arm like that and the resident dog had his head in her lap,you just know she's very special.Mom and dad went to Market Basket on Saturday Morning for a milk run,and Mom picked up some things for Nana while she was there.Then they picked up Nana a few hours after they got home and took her to her church and they went back to Nana's to have pizza and cake and coffee.While they were getting dinner ready,Anthony called as he was coming off from work and he met them there and joined in on having pizza,by the time Mom and dad got home it was really late and we were yelling to have our snuggle time.Sunday Mom did laundry and hung sheets out on the line with a few other things and they dried in the wind we had here.Mom put the rest in the dryer and then Anthony IM'd Mom and wanted her to go with him apartment hunting.He was here at 1pm and the first place they saw was a dump and dirty the bathroom was disgusting,and it was in a basement of the house and you had to enter through the garage.You should've seen the line that was waiting to see it.Anthony filled out the app for it anyway and then the next one was a foreigner who only told Anthony #2 Rte6A and when they got there it was a tiny closet on top of a convenience store but when they went in to see "Paul"about the apt.the foreigner who worked there said there was no apt here and the number was 245 not 2.When Anthony went to call the guy back he wouldn't pick up the phone,Mom and Anthony climbed the ten steps up to the apt and he knocked on the door but no one answered even though they saw someone up there in the window.Mom's car has a transmission leak and dad got an appointment for her to take her car in at 8am tomorrow morning.Just what Mom needs another eggspense.Dad told Mom not to eggspect her car anytime soon.Dad spent the day doing taxes on Sunday and had lots of problems.Finally got it done and Anthony came over to sign his copy so dad can take them up to the IRS offices in Hyannis to be processed.The Feds were e filed.
This morning was a bright sunny morning and the highs for the day will be 53 with the lows of 34 and right now its 53 and a bit on the windy side.After Mom got dad off to work she got us up and cleaned our cages and fed us our bean mix.She really had to sweep the floor as Candida really got into chewing the papers and cardboard Mom has on her grate.
Dad called Mom and told her she has to bring her car up to the repair shop tomorrow morning(Tuesday)to have the transmission fluid leak repaired at 8:00am.Mom is hoping that this won't be a costly repair,her car is 16 years old and has been running just fine.Last Spring dad had all new tires put

  Hi Kookie, Blue buddy & flock
I thought that I would get my notes & votes done early today because I'm going to the Milonga tonight!

Thanks for liking my laundry basket story! It's mom's favorite story of my silly antics! I wasn't scared at all! From the time that mom adopted me, she has been conditioning me not to be afraid of everyday things by playing silly games. My favorite is: "I'm going to choke your head"! Mom will squeal loudly like I do & lightly bop me on top of my head with the object. I squeal, laugh & say WHOA! Life is one big, exciting game to me! I've noticed that many of my friends are afraid of the sweeper, I LOVE it! Ours is an upright & I like to ride on it! Mom has to move it slowly when I hop on but it's so much fun! I love it when mom puts on the edge attachment & puts it against my beak. I love to feel the the sucking air on my birdie nose! I'm a great big silly bird!

I hope your day is a good one!

Oh how could Petey do that to your poor Momma!And to do it on your floor of all places,EWWWWW!I sure do hope you had all your gas masks on!I sure hope that Aunt Tanya had plenty of that peppermint stuff.I sure do agree with you that there'll be no farting in bed tonight not with all that he left in your room!
This morning was a bright sunny but cold morning.The highs for the day were 40 with the lows of 21 and at 8:00pm its 30 and freezing out there.Mom got dad off to work then she collected the rest of the trash and recyclables and loaded them into the car.She got skin sis's rent money ready to go to the bank and then came in and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us our bean mix and while we were eating she got Dixie's carrier ready and soon after both Mom and Dixie were on their way to Nana's while Candida wailed an unhappy cry as they walked out the door.When Mom got to Nana's she loaded Nana's trash and recyclables in Nana's car,and got hers in too,then she got Dixie settled in his cage there and brought him down to the bird room to spend the day with our cousins.Mom and Nana went to the dump and Mom got rid of the recyclables and then the trash and as she went into the trash tunnel area it smelled like skunks and it was sickening.Mom hurried fast to get out of there fast.From there they went to the bank so Mom could do skin sis's banking and from there they went to see skin sis where Mom brought her some mail we got here and to bring her the receipts for the banking.Then they went across the street to the Church to make the Stations of the Cross.From there they went to Shaws/Star Market grocery and Mom tried to pay her EverSource bill but the machine was broken and wouldn't be fixed until later on in the day,Mom will pay it another day.Mom and Nana got some good buys there and then from there they went to Dollar Tree where both Mom and Nana got some things they needed and from there they went back to Mashpee to Roche Bros grocery and got a head of lettuce for $0.99 and a few other sale items.From there they went back to Nana's house and as it was already 3:00pm Nana made them some lunch of a salad with strawberries and tuna on the side,while Mom unloaded the groceries.By the time they were finished it was 4:30pm and getting late.Mom never got to give Trixie II a nail trim and she never got to put the door sweep on the cellar door for Nana or help get her upright freezer down cellar defrosted and cleaned out.There just aren't enough hours in the day anymore.Then Mom got Dixie back in his carrier and cleaned out his cage and put it back in the sun room and went home.Dad helped unload the groceries and then checked out Mom's car.He found it was leaking some oil or antifreeze and now Mom's car will have to go to the repair shop next week.Mom made dad some dinner while she was waiting for that to heat up she came in and cleaned Candida's cage and dad had given her two peanuts for a snack as she was crying when he got home.As they were hav

  Hi Kookie, Blue buddy & flock
I have a very funny story to tell you about "WHOA"! When mom adopted me, she would say "whoa" when we play and when there was a loud noise such as thunder, & it became a game to me. This happened about 16 yrs ago. Mom was sitting on the couch folding laundry, both of my sissies were in the room & I was playing on the floor. I LOVE to climb on & into clothes baskets. That day I made the mistake of climbing up an empty round clothes basket. It happened so fast, as soon as I reached the rim of the basket the darn thing flipped over on top of me! As soon as it trapped me, I said "WHOA"! My mom & sissies were howling with laughter so I started laughing too! So, I'm under this basket, walking towards mom, my tailfeathers streaming out the back, all the while laughing and saying, "WHOA, NOW WHAT, WHOA..." Mom had collapsed on the couch holding her stomach because she was laughing so hard & by then her and my sissies were crying! Mom said that it looked like the old-fangled Mousetrap game where the plastic cage comes down & traps the little plastic mouse! Mom FINALLY lifted the basket & picked me up, we continued laughing at my escapade for quite awhile! I wish I could tell you that was the ONLY time that happened but it happened a few other times! I soon learned to stay off the little round baskets when they're empty! I prefer the large rectangle baskets, they are pretty sturdy & don't topple over!

Mom didn't see the mechanic yet. He called yesterday morning and asked if they could reschedule. The school had called & he had to pick up his sick son from school. He's supposed to call tomorrow to let mom know what day to bring her van over, hopefully Mon or Tues.

I hope to see you at the Milonga tomorrow!

What crazy weather we're having! Yesterday it was 62° and today it is snowing! I don't think that we will have any accumulation because the ground is too warm. Oops, (or should I say Whoa) mom spoke too soon! While she was out running errands, she got caught in a white out! She ran into a building to pick up some forms, it was only sputtering a few snowflakes. Mom was in there less than 10 mins & when she walked out everything was white & there was almost 1/2 inch of snow on the road! It stopped as quickly as it started!

I had the most wonderful dessert after dinner tonight! Mom had bought a jar of chunky cherry applesauce from Aldi's.  It had whole cherries in it and was soooo delicious! Mom wasn't feeding it me fast enough so I climbed onto the arm of the couch and stuck my entire face in the bowl!

Now I can't see just why you can't be snuggling in bed with Doo and sweet Aunt Tanya and Uncle Steve!At least you Too's and any of us fids don't fart and clog up the room!How wonderful that Doo is beginning to trust Uncle Steve and will accept a sammie sandwich bite from him!
This morning was another dull dark day with the temperatures highs for the day of 51 lows of 33 and right now its 54.It's quite windy out there.Mom got dad off to work and then got us up and cleaned our cages,swept the floor and gave us our bean mix.Then she peeled 17 clementines and two grapefruit to have ready for us and her and she collected the trash to have ready for tomorrow's errand run to the dump and got the recyclables in her car and other than working on more chores in the house its going to be another boring day here.Mom is wondering if skin bro made it to Nantucket this morning as Nana heard on the radio that the ferry service was cancelled from going out on the rough waters.And if he is there if he will have to stay there overnight until the ferry is allowed to run again.We are now just getting bits and pieces of sunshine here after a howling windy night.I was so happy to join Mom and Dad at the dining table tonight and that brat bird Candida for the second night in a row was good and only climbed on my travel cage and brought what she took from her Candies Jar up to the top of my cage to eat it.Mom fed me corn from dad's chicken pot pie,and she gave us grapes and clementines.Mom,Nana,Shiloh,Anthony and all of us here just can't thank you enough for all the prayers you send.We are constantly sending prayers back to Aunt Tanya for safe trips to and from work each and everyday.

It's 8:30pm and we are having a very loud thunderstorm! It's quite unusual for us to have thunderstorms in February! I'm snug in my roost, but each time there is a loud clap of thunder, I say "Whoa"! Wow, we just had some rolling thunder that shook the house and almost knocked mom off her feet and set off car alarms! I sure hope this storm is over soon!

I was very chatty again tonight! I said "WHAT" for a solid half hour, so mom gave up on trying to watch a TV show & turned her attention to me! It works every time! When we are being absolutely adorable, how can our parronts do anything other than give all their attention to us!!!

  Hi Kookie
Oh what a surprise that CUBird laid another egg!Mom is so worried about Candida doing that same thing,she already had that situation with Celine a few years back and she had laid three eggs before she stopped.Mom made sure there was no stimulation around after that for her to continue.How awful that you're getting such nasty weather there,we are all worried about Aunt Tanya getting home safely through all those hills and turns.Our prayers are with her for each time she goes out in the morning til the time she leaves to come home.Mom is so scared for her as she hates it that she's alone on all those trips.That had to have been so funny to watch old white lace bloomers fighting with the broom.Would hate to see what would've happened if it fell on her.Now that would've been such a sight to see a grown man running away from a little ekkie that's chasing him,but then Mom runs away from Bella when Bella chases her and tries to take a chomp outta her feet and toes!
This morning dawned a dark and wet morning with frozen rain/snow particles on our deck.The highs for the day are 53 with the lows of 51.Its 46 right now and dropping.We never did get to see those 50's.Mom got dad off to work and then came in and cleaned our cages,swept our room and then we got our bean mix with peaches.Then she called Nana to find out whether they should go on their errand run as the weather looked quite iffy and after discussing it further they decided on waiting til Friday when it should be a good day.Late in the morning it really rained hard and now its supposed to rain all day and into Thursday(tomorrow)and be even heavier rain with lots of strong winds.Skin bro who is working on The Islands(Nantucket)told Mom last night when he was coming home on the boat that it was rocking so bad that he couldn't even get down the stairs to come to the main deck.He was told that if the waters were too choppy tonight that he would be spending the night there as the boats won't run if the waters are too choppy.Mom then scrubbed the downstairs bathroom good and then did more clutter control and vacuumed the house and she's now going to plan what to make for dinner tonight.She had to water the plants yet again as they seem to be drying out more quickly than usual.She wishes she could put them back out on the deck but with this weather it might just kill them off.Other than Mom working on her chores there is nothing interesting to tell.Its another glorious boring day here for which we're all too happy to have and we get Mom until Friday now when the weather should be good for Mom and Nana to do their errands.

I'm so glad that BC is working again! Mom was at Aunt Amy's house all day today and I was is in lockdown! It wasn't too bad because mom put a new roll of adding machine paper on my favorite toy. I LOVE to chew up paper wads and unravel the paper! I unravelled about half of the roll by the time mom got home! Mom went over there because Aunt Amy's boyfriend was going to fix the window in mom's van. Well, he was able to get the window up, but it's not repaired. Mom had it fixed at the Chevy garage a year ago and they put in several new parts and a new motor for the window controls...at least that's what they told mom AND what they billed the warranty company! Eric sent mom some pics, the parts were NOT new, they semi repaired the old parts, there are 2 different areas that have exposed copper wires, they didn't bother putting the insulation back into the door and 9 of 12 of the clips that hold the door panel onto the door were broken or missing! Eric told her NOT to use the window until it is properly fixed, wih those exposed wires it could possibly spark & catch on fire. I don't think that I have to tell you how mad mom is!!! A buddy of a good friend of mom's owns a garage and mom is going to stop there tomorrow to get a second opinion from him so she has more documentation before she goes to the Chevy garage and makes a big ruckus! After she visits the 2nd mechanic she's going to call the consumer advocate at one of the local news stations. Boy, did they screw over the wrong person! It took me an hour of giving kisses and being silly to get mom calmed down and laughing! Those idiots have no idea what is about to storm into their garage!!!

Please give my Blue buddy a big hug from me!

I hope your day was a good one! At least better than mom's day!
Love & a vote

  it worked.Then Nana made some coffee for them and they sat and had something to eat with the coffee and then Mom left to come home.When she got home she made dad his sandwiches for the week,and checked again on Dixie,gave him another massage and held him a little and then took her 8 primrose plants outside to join her rosemary plant on the deck.They're not doing so well in the house and keep drying up even though Mom waters them every 2-3 days.Mom will probably finish cleaning up more clutter from the dining room. She made meat loaf for dinner and rice krispie treats for dessert.Other than that it will be a quiet kind of a Sunday something we haven't had in a long time.But that's okay,Mom is back home with us right now and that's all we care about!

  Hi Kookie
We got dumped offa BC on Friday and never got to get on at all when Mom got home and we couldn't get on all day Saturday and finally got back on late Saturday night but kept getting the server error and the timed out pages and the slow cycling and had to type most of our blogs twice,then when Mom checked back to see if our blogs were going through she only saw half a blog in some places!What a pain in the tail feathers that was!Oh how awesome that Miranda's sweetbeak SamIAm sent her a big box of goodies!Sam is so sweet!The way that BC was acting up I don't think any of us would be able to attend without getting dumped off,its bad enough on a regular night with the glitches it gives us!Shiloh called Mom up last night crying that the pain was really unbearable and she's having a hard time sitting on the toilet as it hurts her surgery site,she has one of those handicap potties to use and that's not much better.Mom told her to keep taking the stool softeners so it won't be so bad and hurt.By the time she IM'd Mom last night she seemed a bit better.Mom got this IM tonight and it had your sweet Momma's pic and someone named Carol Hehmeyer along with a Debbie and somebody named Shira Terrasse was on the hangout list,and this is what was under Aunt Tanya's pic,.Dazed and confused...don't know which app to download...technotard here...Happy Easter everybirdy!Mom never got it as she was in the shower at that time and then Carol turned off her History!What has Aunt Tanya got to do with these people and who are they and why were they on Mom's hangouts trying to IM her?Also those comments were from 4/4/15 and she also got missed calls from Frank and Melanie!Mom has no idea how this got on her IM!Was Aunt Tanya trying to IM Mom?Who are these other people,Carol etc?
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 53 with the lows of 33 and right now its 54.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and our room and then fed us our warm bean mix.Dixie was in greyt pain this morning and he couldn't get his leg to come down from being bent up near his head.Mom took him and gave him a foot,toe and leg massage and then massaged his whole leg thigh and elbow in some warm water to get his leg to come down and she massaged his toes so he could unclench them from being in a tight fist.He was in so much pain that you could see it in his eyes.He had no interest in eating and Mom stayed with him until she could get him to eat some of his bean mix.Then Nana called for Mom to take her to church this morning,skin bro was working in Quincy,skin sis can't drive for 3 months,since she just had surgery and so Mom had to leave and told our dad to keep an eye on him which he did.Mom left and took Nana to church and then they came back to her house and Mom changed the light bulb for Nana that blew out in her light fixture that hangs down from the ceiling.She had to stand on a chair to get to it and reach up high but she finally got it screwed into the socket and

  Hi Kookie
My Mamma is always there for your sweet loving Mamma!She is our family and always will be.Because of her I am here and both Mom and I will never ever forget it either,we both owe her so much!Charlie sounds like Kallie,who used to love to let every birdie out of their cages.Mom had to have special locks on our cages so he couldn't get them opened anymore.Now we don't need any Stark naked Baldrick for sure!Oh,would that be something if the mutt's farts would smell as sweet as an ice cream sammie!You sound like us whenever our Mom gives us those rotten banana's,we just huck them so far and hit the walls and the floor.
This morning is a bright sunny morning but cold.Our highs for the day will be 34 the lows of 24 and its 36 right now.Mom got dad off to work and then came in and gave us a good scrubbing as she hadn't done that yesterday.She collected the trash and got the recyclables in her car,while the trash she got ready to put in the car,the rest she'll collect tonight after dinner.Peepers and Celine will be going back to skin sis tomorrow sometime in between the dump and other errands that need to be done.Mom made homemade Chicken Pot Pie for dinner and Tuna Noodle Casserole for tomorrow nights dinner so she'll just have to heat and eat when she comes home late.Skin bro IM'd Mom and then called and he came over on his way home from work in Rhode Island.Mom gave him some hot Chicken Pot Pie right from the oven to take home for his dinner tonight and a big slice of chocolate cake for his dessert.His room mate got arrested last night at his house and so now he's looking for another place to live.Skin bro wants to get a place in two weeks time.But with his long hours working out of state and not making it home in time Mom has no idea how he's going to find the time to do so.After Mom cleaned up the kitchen and put everything away,she had a nice shower and is hoping to get some time to sit and finish our notes.Tomorrow will be a very busy day again and we're hoping for a quiet weekend.

  es,etc.Then skin bro called and he was on his way over and so she had to get the light on for him to come up on the deck.He came and stayed till around near 8:00pm so Mom had to finish taking care of us and get us ready for bed.Mom is hoping to get our notes done tonight and it will be a long night for her as she couldn't start til after 9pm,skin sis and skin bro are IMing her at the same time so she'll be up till two or three am.Please forgive us for a quick note tonight as Mom is so tired and her head is really hurting.

  Hi Kookie
We keep getting the time out page which makes blogging take forever as we have to start from scratch every time so its like doing each blog twice,Mom is so tired and has a bad headache and has so many of our blogs to finish and its already midnight.Please accept our apologies.But this is so slow and aggravating having to do each blog twice!
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs of 44 the lows of 27 and right now its 34.It was a beautiful day today so much better today than the last several days we've had.Mom was getting ready to go to Nana's and dad called and told her the streets were slick with ice,there were lots of accidents and a car went into a telephone pole and there were others who were sliding all over the road.Dad told Mom to wait at home until he got in his work truck to check Rte 28 where Mom was going.Dad had made sure that the roads in the Mills were all salted good as his crews were out early this morning salting the roads because of all the early morning accidents.They hadn't even treated Rte 28 and dad told Mom when he got back that it was safe for Mom to go to Nana's and run her errands.Mom got Dixie and put him in his carrier and wrapped the carrier up in his blanket.She had the car warmed and then put Dixie in the car and when they got to Nana's Nana had breakfast waiting for them and Dixie got to share Nana with her whole wheat English muffin.When they were finished Mom put Dixie in his cage there and wheeled him down to the Bird Room where he spent the day with Bella and Trixie II.Mom and Nana got into Mom's car and took off to Hyannis and went to BB&Beyond where Nana got a soft potty seat as the hard one hurt her.From there they went to Trader Joe's where Nana got some things she needed and from there they went to Shaw's/Star Market grocery store where both Mom and Nana got some buys on meats and other things they needed.From there they went to The Dollar Tree where Nana got nose drops and some other items and from there they went back to Mashpee where they went to 99 Restaurant where they had a burger with broccoli and Nana had cole slaw to go with hers instead of the fries.From there they went back to Nana's as it was well after 4:00pm and they had coffee and dessert and Mom brought in all of Nana's groceries etc and then Mom took some things down cellar to the freezer there that they got.Mom fixed Nana's VCR and got the tape speed right so it wouldn't go through a whole tape in one day.After Mom and Nana were done with their coffee and dessert,Mom collected Dixie and cleaned out his cage and went home.When she got home Dad helped unload the car while Mom got Dixie back in his cage,she put the groceries away and got dad some dinner,a frozen dinner but she added garlic mashed potatoes with it and he had a slice of Vanilla Bean Cake with it.Candida got to share dinner with dad as usual.Mom has a bad headache and she cleaned up the dishes and got things ready for dad for the morning,coffee maker sandwich

  Hi Kookie
I can't believe that Moggie killed another mouse!Jeez!Aunt Tanya should send him out for hire to be a mouser he's better than a cat,cats just play with the mouse but Moggie kills them big time and gets them outta the house for good!We are all so amazed that he himself didn't get hurt or injured by the mice.For a little tiel with the tip of his beak cut off he's sure got some talent there!Hey I think that we should hire Moggie the next time we have a mouse problem!That blanket wrap is really a good idea and I think every birdie will love being wrapped up and held and caressed!And we all agree that glasses are a problem.Mom remembers when Gabbie hated Mom's glasses and would bite her hard and even try to attack her.There are all kinds of things that we can't stand,certain colors and certain changes on our parronts faces,clothes hair cuts etc.
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of highs of 29 the lows of 31.Its 18 right now and still quite cold out there though this seems like a heat wave compared to the single digits we were in!The sun has since disappeared and its getting cloudy and we are expecting snow tonight around dinner time.Not sure if my dad will be home for dinner as its his Crew A that's up next.Mom got us all up and when she came into our room it was filled with feathers and it looked as if someone plucked one of us to the skin there were so many feathers!Last night before Mom and dad went to bed she checked in on us and Peepers was on the bottom of the cage with his wings up and when Mom went to put him back on the perch he wouldn't let Mom touch him,he bit her instead!He wouldn't put his wings down either and he kept screaming whenever she tried to pick him up and refused to even touch the perch with his feet or toes.So Mom left him on the bottom of the cage with his wings up and went to bed.This morning there were feathers all over the place so Mom had more to clean up after.We finally got our warmed bean mix with peaches and got our room swept and then vacuumed and our cages cleaned.Mom vacuumed the whole house and is going to just work on getting more things cleaned out of the linen closet for today.There just never seems to be an end to all the downsizing of this house!But at least it keeps Mom home with us and inside all day!Another uneventful day here,just the way we like it though!
The snow has started here earlier than they said it would be and skin sis is on her way home from the hospital and in a whole lot of pain.She could barely get in the car this time.Skin bro is working in Rhode Island for a few weeks and will be going to NH in a few weeks.Mom is waiting on my dad to get the call to go to work and is getting everything ready for him to go.The snow is now covering up what we already had that never melted and Mom and I are none to happy to see any of this!UGGGGGGHHHH!Now they just called for my dad and now he's gone so its just Mom and us for the night so far!This is turning into a wei

  Hi Kookie
Happy Valentines's Day Aunt Tanya,Uncle Steve Kookie and Flock
EWWWWW Dog farts in bed!Now I don't see just why you can't be up there and snuggle with your parronts in their roost and watch Goosebumps!My Mom used to read those books to Anthony when he was little and they are so funny especially the one about the blob thing.Mom just couldn't stop laughing so hard through the pages of that one!Mom and all of us here are so praying that Aunt Tanya makes it home from work before the snow starts.Oh that fire sure sounds nice and warm to sit in front of!Mom has to take me over to see you do the HillBilly Bird Dance video on FB!We loved watching you do it in birdson!
This morning was a bright sunny morning but frigid cold like ice.The highs for the day are 9 and the lows will be 4 and its -2 right now with wind chills of -26.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and then fed us our bean mix.Then after Mom got dad his breakfast she went to brush her teeth and get dressed,but when she went to put the cold water on in the downstairs bathroom no water came out,not even a drop!She turned the hot water on and brown stuff came out and then it was fine so Mom brushed her teeth using hot water.She told dad and he nearly panicked like our pipes would burst.He looked up on line what to do and he heated the pipes down cellar with a hair dryer and then put the water on in the upstairs bathroom to run.Then Mom emptied all the stuff from the cabinet in the downstairs bathroom so my dad could put the heat box in there to warm up the pipes and the wall inside the cabinet.Then he went down cellar to finish trying to heat the pipes down there.And after awhile he got the water going so now we have to leave the water dribbling for awhile just to make sure that everything is going well.Mom is so relieved that everything is fine now,we've never been this cold before and never had this problem!Mom is so happy that she's staying home today and other than the frigid cold and trying to get more cleaning done its going to be a nice quiet day for us here.Much too cold to be going outside.So Mom is home with us all day and so is dad!Mom got a nice Valentine's Card from my dad!
We all got birdiecures today and Dixie got his beak done while everyone else got nails and weights taken.
