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
Mom finally got a hold of the receptionist or whatever she was that answers the phone and she said that Dr. Blake will fax the prescription right over to your awesome Mom!Your Mom is so ingenious and the receptionist said that Dr. Blake did get the message from my sister but she was still trying to push Mom into getting Mario to come in for the fluids injections twice a day for the 4-5 days!Mom told her she was tapped out with all the other eggspenses and then she told her that it would be best even if she came in once a week to start.Mom also told them that she was very upset that they never got back to your Mom in a timely manner!I think that they are upset with my Mom because she wouldn't bring Mario to Tufts and or take him in for the fluid injections and spend all that money that might just get poor Mario all stressed out and upset.Mom and all of us here just can't thank your amazing Mom enough for all she is doing for us and Mario,there are no words to eggsplain how much she means to us and Mom and all of us are so blessed to have you all in our lives,she has saved me and she's saving Mario also.We don't trust anyone else but your incredible Mom,our Aunt Tanya,my Mom's sister!We love you soooo much more than you can imagine!
Loving you always and sending you all our love always and forever,Dixie Give your wonderful Mom a huge warm hug from my Mom!

This morning was a freezing cold morning with temperatures of 27 degrees with lots of sun shine,but it did nothing to warm things up at all.Mom got Dixie and Mario packed warmly in their carriers and wrapped a warm blanket around them both while waiting for skin sis to come and pick them up.She was a bit late because of the construction by her apartment but they got in the car and went directly to Nana's to drop Dixie and Mario off and then they raced back to the gym to get to Zumba class and just made it right when the class was starting!As soon as they got out from the gym they went back to Nana's to pick her up to go to Market Basket to get some grocery shopping done for Thanksgiving and Nana got some pies there and both Mom and Nana got some marked down cream pies from the bakery section there,Nana got a nice cake and they got gravy and cranberry sauce a head of lettuce,cucumber and Mom got some tomatoes and Mom got 5 gallons of milk as she was down to her last gallon and they got several other things.Then they went back to our house to drop off all the things Mom got and then from there to Nana's to drop off her things and then they went and grabbed a bite to eat at Asia a Chinese restaurant and then from there they went to Roche Brothers grocery store where Mom bought a turkey breast for Thanksgiving dinner. Nana wants to go to Trader Joe's next week to get some sweet potatoes and they still have to get the Turkey broth for Nana to make the turkey soup to go with the meal. It was so cold in the grocery stores today and Mom just can't seem to warm up! Mom never got home til 6:30pm.She had to get dad's dinner and get the rest of us all cleaned and fed and put all the groceries away and now here it is after 9:00pm and Mom is just starting to get our visits in!
Mom and I just don't know what we'd ever do without you and your incredible Momma in our lives,Mom and all of us missed you all sooo much when you were gone,Mom sooo loved her visit with your Mom last night more than you can know!She had wanted to discuss what to do about Mario and only trusts your amazing Momma's thoughts and theory on the subject and not the vets!The aspirin is doing so nicely with Mario's foot and his toes,the swelling is going down slowly in Mario's toes and it doesn't look so bad now and we all have your incredible Mom to thank for that as she has really helped me soo much also,words just can't tell you just how blessed and thankful we are to have you all in our family!I think Mandy is really trying to bribe you fids big time and maybe you'll want to always keep her knowing just what she will bring for you!I agree with you about your sweet Momma never taking a two week vacation visiting with strange birds as she has enough of you there she doesn't have to leave home and go far away to visit anymore fids!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses! Loving you always and forever,my sweet fister,Love

Mom and Nana saw the same thing when they went grocery shopping on Friday,everything seems to have been wiped out!As if they don't keep any food in their homes but only on a week to week basis!Oh your poor sweet Momma having to get up so early and get her tired butt off to work like that,it was such a dark day here today and still is with wet rain and darkness all around but Mom refuses to put our light on for us all day long. Its 59 degrees out there or so the computer says it is and the wind is starting to pick up now,it was quiet and calm out there most of the morning and a good part of the afternoon.We are eggspecting those 50mph winds to come in and Mom is holding on tight that we don't lose our power.What a pain in the tail feathers that always is!Does Miranda sound like Bella,now that's not safe to chew on the thermostat like that!If its not the carpet in Nana's living room,then its the woodwork on the walls and is Bella sneaky like that too!Anthony went on a job interview last night for the Christmas deliveries and he got the job!So now he's up as usual at 3:00am to be at the loading docks for UPS and as soon as he finishes loading the trucks,he's gotta drive to Mashpee from Yarmouth to meet the driver to start delivering the packages with no break in between!They keep delivering packages until the truck is empty,so whenever time that is that's when they get to come home!Mom and all of us sure hope that he gets full time out of one of these jobs now before the season is ended!
Mario is doing much better sharing my aspirin he just won't stop climbing the cage bars!Mom has everything down low to the bottom of the cage for him so he doesn't have to move much,he's been eating the baby food sweet potatoes and so have I.Now Mom has got to find broccoli and zucchini for him to start eating.Tiels are so stubborn on what they get to eat!

It sure sounded like you all had so much fun creating such chaos as soon as your sweet Momma let you all out from lockdown and behind bars!It sure must've been like Moggie's airport with everyone flying in all different directions and spooking each other the way you did!I'll bet that Aunt Jeanne just loved watching you do your hill billy dance!You had us all rolling on the floor describing how CU walked all the way back to her condo complaining bitterly sounding like a possessed duck!Knowing how those greys can really sound so angry like an angry bird we could just about hear her from here!And we just could think of how funny it was to see you chasing Petey and screaming at him!You are all way too funny and have really put a smile on all our beaks here!And then to chase after your wonderful Momma and get her toes like that!My Mom is always barefoot and I'll bet you'd go right after her fat toes also,just like Bella does to her!Hahahahaha!Thanks to your sweet Momma I'm feeling much better because of my aspirin and Mom is getting Mario to have it also,he even ate the sweet potato baby food she gave him this morning in his bean mix and I even had some also!Mom gave Mario one of my special soft flat perches to stand on and he loves it,now he spends his day sitting on that when he's not climbing his cage bars!Mom lowered everything for him close to the floor of the cage and he refuses to stay there,maybe with my soft perch he likes so much he'll cave and stay down there so he won't put too much pressure on his toes and feet!
It was a freezing cold morning with the temperatures at 37 degrees.We had no sun at all today and it was dark and overcast. Mom started out the day making sandwiches for my dad's lunch for tomorrow and cleaning our cages and getting our breakfast ready,then skin sis called and she came down and they spent the day in the kitchen making heat baking.They made Double Pineapple Berry Dump Cake,Strawberry Marshmallow Cake,Orange Cookies and Brownies,then after Mom cleaned up the kitchen she made lunch for skin sis and herself of a turkey strip with veggie salad roll up,Mom had Chipotle dressing on hers and skin sis had ranch dressing. Skin sis stayed til around four and Mom packed her up a little of each of the things they made to take home with her.Other than that it was a quiet day here! Our highs were supposed to be 45 and our lows 40 but right now we are at 39.Today is our 8th anniversary with BC!

Oh how wonderful to have your sweet Parronts back home with you again!They sure must've been soo egghausted having to travel and chase after three planes to make their connections and to have to wait four hours to wait for the plane to take them to Charlotte NC and then to have to run from one end of the terminal to the other to catch the connecting flight back must've been so nerve wracking and your poor Momma with that bum knee too!And your poor daddy having to drive a whole other hour or more just to get back home!You just can't believe how so very happy I am that you're wonderful Parronts are back again!We all here have missed you more than you can imagine!I sure do hope that your Parronts can get some much needed sleep today!I agree with you why couldn't you go upstairs and snuggle down with them instead of Petey,that just wasn't fair at all!

We awoke to a dark rainy day and it was just barely 36 degrees!It was freezing!Mom got us all fed and cleaned and then she got Mario and Dixie and put them in their carriers and warmed the car up after she collected the trash and loaded that in the car.Then when the car was warm enough Dixie and Mario went with her and they went to Nana's house where Dixie and Mario got to visit with our cousins,Dixie with Trixie II and Mario with Bella.Mom and Nana went to the dump and was it cold there then to the bank,then to Falmouth to Shaw's where they picked up the sales items,lots of soup,cereal for Candida and Dixie,some grape jam for dad's lunches and some baby food squash and sweet potatoes for Mario.Then they went to the Dollar Tree and got some things there some frozen veggies and a few other things then to Michael's and then they went home to Nana's to get some lunch.Mom came home at a decent hour she was home before 5:00pm tonight and then dad came and helped her unload the car and she put everything away and fed us and cleaned our cages and then made dinner for dad.It snowed in Mashpee this morning but we didn't get any and we live two towns away,the lawns were covered in white and Mom couldn't believe her eyes!Then at the Rotary in Mashpee they were putting up all the Christmas lights on all the trees that are in the middle of the Rotary,next we'll be seeing the little shed and all the other Christmas things out there again!It was so good to have the heat back in Nana's car again as the stores were freezing and it was freezing outside!Mom is hoping to be home all weekend and not have to go out in the cold!
Mario finally finished the aspirin meds that Mom drizzled on his pellets!Now Mom is hoping that he will eat them the same way tomorrow!She picked up some baby food squash and sweet potatoes for him to eat today but they didn't have any broccoli in baby food so she'll try the squash and sweet potatoes on him in the morning,he's just so picky,he wouldn't eat real broccoli!
Your sweet wonderful parronts are in our prayers for a safe trip back home tonight,we have all missed you soo soo much!I just know that you can't wait to get your daddy back home with you again!I'm so grateful for the aspirin,this cold weather is doing a job on my feet and toes and a little eggstra dose of that and I can deal with anything and I told Mario he's gonna find the same thing but he's gotta keep taking it!Please give your wonderful amazing Momma a big wing hug from me,she's saved me more than once and I owe everything to her!

Your sweet wonderful Momma is so right about doing the practical and rational things for those we love!And Mom so agrees with her about the latest in technology and diagnostics you do have to take care of priorities first.And Mario is in such pain and needs something for that.I know how much that aspirin helps me and every time I have it I feel so much better and I know Mario will also.Mom even gave him some of it by mouth this morning and he liked it,you should've seen his tongue going trying to lick the syringe!Mom likes the idea of crushing his pellets and putting the aspirin on that.She is giving him the tart cherry juice instead of water until he drinks enough of it then she gives him water in his cage for the rest of the night.Cookie you are so funny!You sure do keep and eagle eye on your awesome Momma from the other room!And she's the reason why I like my aspirin and don't give Mom a hard time when she puts it in my bean mix!She really does know what things should taste like for me to take it without a fight!!
Oh now that you're back both me and Mario can start feeling the love and prayers for healing from you and it means the world to us to have you all here by our side!
Loving you always and forever,my sweet fister,Dixie

Mom and all of us here were so eggcited and so happy to have you back with us again,Mom was a wreck the whole time you and your wonderful amazing Mom were gone!She got no sleep just running up and down those stairs to keep checking on Mario all night long with those bad dreams of coming down an hour or two later seeing him on the floor of his cage!Mom hardly got any sleep the last two weeks.Mom is more at ease now that you and your Mom are back,Aunt Tanya means the world to all of us here,she saved my life and for that I am forever grateful to her and so is my Mom and I know that she will find a way for Mario also!We all owe her more than we can imagine,she has always been there for us and we need to do something to pay her back for all the love and caring she has given us fids and our family too!Mario takes the last of those toxic meds tonight and Mom will start him on my aspirin tomorrow morning.She's got to find something to pour it over for him though as right now he's just been getting pellets.Maybe she'll make him some baby food cereal and put the aspirin over that for Mario!Mom and all of us here have to tell you just how much we missed you sooo and are sooo happy to have you back!That was the longest week or so I've ever had to go through!Mom just can't believe how these vets think either,there are no trees in our back yard to pull the money off from,and Mario just like me would never have survived all what she wanted to put him through!Mom will keep the tart cherry juice flowing for Mario even if she just puts it in his cage instead of water til he drinks it all for her!LOL!

Oh you just don't know how good it felt for my Mom to talk to your amazing Momma tonight!Now at least she can relax knowing that Mario will be getting the help he so needs with someone who really cares!I myself have missed you more than you can imagine!I was so lonely without my fister to talk too and visit!Doo sounds like me,I do the same thing to my Mom,I refuse to eat for the fid sitter and she gets worried that I'm going to die!WE are all so worried about your poor Momma's leg so sore and swollen like that,we are so hoping that she can elevate it and just sit there and do nothing and get the weight off it,do I ever know what she's feeling and the pain she must be in!Please give your sweet daddy and Uncle Wes a big warm wing hug from all of us here and wish them a very happy Veteran's Day and my daddy sends his best wishes to them also for putting their lives on the line to keep us all safe and free!

Oh how eggcited I am to have you back in my life again,there has just been too much going on here and Mom was a wreck the last two weeks ever since Mario got sick,there is so much the vet wants to do to him and Mom simply refuses!My Mom will send you the letter she sent her about all the things and drugs she wants to put him on and the shots twice daily etc and the costs!Mario is feeling much better today and he's even back to talking in words and he just loves having attention!Oh my that ship sure sounds like a rip off with charging $300.00 just for a week of wifi!Gimme a break!Now how can Doo be so snotty to Mandy like that she is there to make sure he gets good food to eat,fresh water and treats,you just don't treat someone like that badly!My eye is all better now and I'm off all the drugs and Mom has until Wednesday to give Mario his,but the vet wants Mom to make a decision so she can tell her which way they are going to proceed with his care.We all have missed you more than you can ever imagine!How is your sweet Momma's knee and the knot behind it?My toes have been so painful in the cold weather and I've been taking my medicine(aspirin)everyday and Mom has been giving me a little bit more on the days I've been hurting and she sees it in my eyes!I just can't tell you how very much I have missed you,it's been so lonely here without you to talk to!

Now how gross is that to eat your poop and then lick your face afterwards!EWWWWW! It was a grey day here and only got up to 55 and was on the cold side.We had no sunshine at all and the dark ominous clouds were in the sky all day long like it was going to rain.Mom got up early this morning and collected the trash for the dump and loaded everything in the car then she went and put Mario and Dixie in their carriers and as she was ready to leave skin bro called and wanted to know if he could use her computer so she brought us back in the house and waited for him to come.After he left they were on their way to Nana's house where Mom administered meds to both Dixie and Mario and after Dixie and Mario were settled in their cages Mom and Nana went to the dump then to the bank,and to the gas station where Mom pumped gas in Nana's car for her,then they went back to Nana's and picked up Mom's car.Mom loaded her car with an old cage Nana was throwing out and back to the dump they went,Mom left the cage in the metal pile and back to the gas station they went to fill Mom's car and Mom pumped a second time,then they went to Roche Bros and picked up a few things then to Stop&Shop and they got a few more things then they went back to Nana's house again to have a late lunch(at 3:30)and skin bro was there waiting for them,Nana made a nice salad with fruit in it and they had some cookies for dessert and then it was near five pm and Mom had to collect Dixie and Mario after giving Dixie one more dose of his eye meds and then they went home.She had to get everything unpacked and put away and dad came out to help her unload the car so she could take Dixie and Mario in and get them settled.Then she had to get all the candy out and ready for the trick or treaters!Now Mom is waiting for the Trick or Treaters to come!So far we have gotten 45 trick or treaters here.Mom keeps having to jump up and down every ten minutes or so and at the same time try and get our visits in!Mom and all of us here just can't thank your sweet Mom for those daily conversations with God about healing Mario,Mom just can't lose him,its just too devastating,we all know he's old but that doesn't mean we don't love him any less.He was even starting to talk again tonight and my dad keeps coming in to check on him also and talk to him!Dad says he's the sweetest tiel ever!Mom would love the monograph of the Nystatin to keep in her record files!We are praying so hard that your poor Momma doesn't have to be kept out too late and we so worry about her sore knee and leg,we so hope she doesn't have to run up and down stairs again today,she'll never be able to enjoy the cruise when she's in so much pain,Mom will be putting her name in the special intentions book at church again tomorrow when she goes again for another full week of prayers and your daddy too!Anthony had his interview and test for the job this morning and passed the test nicely and he starts work on Monday morning at 4:30am!And they have him wor

Mom and all of us here just can't thank your sweet Mom for all the prayers she is sending for Mario.He didn't start perking up til late morning and then Mom had to give him the Nystatin and it took nearly ten minutes to get it all down him,some dribbled out the side,then Mom gave him the Enro and I think that was too much for him,he became lethargic again when Mom put him back in his hospital cage and she covered him and let him sleep but cleaned his cage beforehand again then by early afternoon,she brought Mario some pellets of mine and he came right down to eat and he went through three bowls of pellets and wanted more and took a few sips of water,Mom cut him off at three bowls she didn't want him to over do it!Your poor sweet Momma having to come home late from work and then to have to pick up after Doo pooping on the wrong side of the gate like that on the runner!Get a grip dad,I think doggie poop is grosser than birdie poop!Don't worry about the thank you's,Mom sure knows all about that she still has to get over to Gabbies page and finish off the thank you's there!I sure hope that your Mom can relax and ice her leg again and get off her feet so she can heal!Both Mom and I thank you sooooo soooo much for that wonderful bottle of aspirin!I can't wait to get that and I even lick the bowl clean of every drop that's on it of aspirin!Please give your wonderful Mom a big warm wing hug from me and a bigger hug from my Momma!We love you soo sooo much!Without you I wouldn't be!

  Mom helped unload the car with her things and then collected both Dixie and Mario and brought them back home here with us.Mom didn't get done putting everything away til nearly 8 and then she put Mario in a small hospital cage with food and water and he crawled up the cage bars and sat himself on a perch,Mom is waiting to give him his meds and she is trying to keep Mario and Dixie's meds separate as she has to give both of them different amounts at 12 hour intervales.
Mom has had such a stressful day today and is praying so hard that Mario will show some improvements by morning!She's so upset!If anyone out there will please say some prayers for our frother Mario we will so appreciate it more than you can know,we don't want to lose our sweet fibling.He is the sweetest tiel you would ever meet.

This morning was a nice warm morning with temperatures close to 70 degrees,a bright sunny day here and Mom was ready when skin sis picked her up for zumba class this morning.They went to zumba and (I)Dixie went with them and I got to sit in on the class while all the silly ladies and guy danced around to the crazy music!Then when Mom and skin sis got to Nana's house,skin sis had brought our frother Mario(a Lutino Tiel) down to her house for Mom to check him out as she was worried be had a lame leg.When Mom took a look at Mario,she immediately called the vet and the vet wanted Mom to take him in right away!When Mom,Nana and skin sis arrived there they took Mario in the back room to check him out and they made Mom,Nana and skin sis wait in the examining room til they got back,they must've been waiting there for over 45 minutes and the prognosis wasn't very good.Mario had end stage gout and he had his crop flushed and has bacteria growing in his crop,the vet took blood from him today and only got a little as he was too weak to have much more drawn,the vet told Mom that she could take Mario to Tufts which is a two and a half hour away from here and it would cost Mom over $5,000.00 for all the tests and procedures they will do there and she also told Mom that Mario could pass away if they put him under anesthesia and if she spent the money on him he still could die and then she told Mom that they could do the tests,X-rays,more blood work,and everything else there but he still might not make it either so Mom and skin sis just lost it and burst out crying,they couldn't believe just how bad Mario is.So she gave Mario some Enrofloxacin to take every 12 hours and some Nystatin to take every 12 hours for the bacteria.They want Mom to take Mario back in on Friday for more tests but Mom doesn't want to put him through any more upsets,he was throwing up while the vet examined him.Mom is so very upset and can barely see through her tears as she writes this for us.Then when they told Mom they faxed Mario's Nystatin to Walgreen's for Mom to pick up,Mom waited three hours before she went there to pick them up,when she went there they weren't even in yet so Mom asked the pharmacist why wasn't it in there and they told her it was the vets end so Mom called the Vet and told them the script wasn't in yet and they said they would send it again so Mom and skin sis and Nana walked around Walgreens for ten more minutes and then Mom went back to get the script and they said they just got it in and it would be another 30 minutes to get it filled so Mom,Nana and skin sis went to Market Basket to start their grocery shopping and this was at 5:00pm.Mom was in no mood for walking around the grocery store and was like walking in a dream throwing items in her cart.By the time they all got done shopping it was after 6:00pm and they headed back to Walgreens which was about a 20 minute drive back and they finally had it in,by the time they got back to Nana's it was close to 7 and

OOHHH!That is truly a very very early start for your poor sweet Momma to be up before dawn like that she'll be so exhausted before noon time for sure!Oh how awful to be having to leave on a trip right when all this upset and confusion is going on at your Mom's work!That would be the scary part the not knowing when and if you have a job to come back to once you are gone.Mom and all of us here are so praying that she does come back with a good promotion like she so deserves and a big fat raise to match!She so deserves it for all the meticulous work she does there and the caring to get everything just right!
Anthony called Mom early this morning and told her he has a job with UPS,its only part time again,he worked there last year and they really loved him and the work he did and they told him that if he works out this time he may be chosen to work full time,he was so eggcited and he will be loading the trucks in Sagamore this time and he starts at 7:00am tomorrow morning.Both Mom and Nana and dad are happy and hopes he gets to make it for the full time position as he needs so desperately to get back on his feet again!Isn't packing for a trip fun?Having to hurry and get the house all cleaned,the suitcases packed,the fid sitter in order and the little bags of food all doled out for the days that they'll be gone!Mom can't wait to have her visit with your sweet Momma tonight!She's so gonna miss her when she's on the trip though!Thank you for liking my pic with Little Angel!I can't wait to stop all these eggstra meds I'm taking,I feel like I'm constantly having to have another dose of something every time I turn around! YUCK!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft birdie kisses!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

Mom and dad had a bad morning this morning as they woke up to the clocks flashing in their bedroom,some how in the night we lost our power and it was already 6:11am and dad was supposed to be up at 5:45am in order to get out on time!So Mom had to race downstairs and get the coffee maker all reset in order to get the coffee started.Then she set all the flashing clocks on the microwave,oven,etc.She threw together dad's lunch in his lunch cooler box and got the coffee finally poured into his thermos and his instant breakfast made and set on the table with vitamin.She hates those mornings with a big jolt to start off the day!
We awoke to another bright sunny day here with the temperatures at 61 now and if it wasn't for the breeze out there it just might be nice out there!
Mom spent the day cleaning and vacuuming the house as she couldn't do much yesterday and was too tired by the time Shiloh left to go home!And of course we got a good cage scrubbing so now we have to go and rechew the papers and fix our cages the way we like them!
My eye is doing greyt now and it looks as if nothing was ever there!Mom is going to give me the Enrofloxacin til Friday or Saturday as she refuses to chance me with having the whole bottle!Mom and I will be on the lookout for my aspirin in the mail for Wednesday,we both love you and your awesome Mom soo sooo much,that aspirin is what really helps my feet and the pain I'm having to deal with!I so appreciate all the prayers you send every day,they mean so much to me and Mom!

Oh that's just the same way it is when my Mom gets up with my dad to get him off to work,pitch dark like in the middle of the night!Your poor Mom having to go out in the darkness like that to meet and greet those visitors and assessing that current operation that's going on there!I do hope that your sweet Momma gets to enjoy her dinner out with them,the owner and his wife tonight!But it sure is gonna be quite the longest day ever for both you and your sweet Momma!I do hope that you get lots of daddy time in and get to stay out with him the whole day and time your Momma will be gone!Moggie is so funny sitting there waiting while it got dark for your Momma to get back!If my Mom doesn't close our curtains and we have to see the blackness of the outside,we all yell and scream for her to get back in our room and shut those curtains,we don't want to see those shadows and lights from cars going down the street and see the pouring rain streaming down the windows like that or the thunder and lightening either!

We woke up this morning to a dark dismal dreary,rainy day with the temperatures of 57 degrees.Skin sis came and picked up Mom and Dixie(me)and they took off to Zumba class where they put (me)Dixie in the back of the class where Mom and skin sis work out anyway,this was my (Dixie's) third time going to Zumba with Mom and skin sis and still no one even noticed me!After they were done at the gym they went to Nana's and dropped me off to spend the day with our cousin Trixie II in the kitchen this time as it was way too cold in the sun room.They went to Falmouth to Walmart where Mom got a small heat box for skin sis for Christmas for her apartment and a pair of inexpensive earrings for herself as our baby fister Candida ruined her earrings last night by pulling out the stone!I swear Candida thinks she's a cockatiel,she just loves anything shiny and loves to get her beak into whatever it may be!Then they went to the Dollar Tree where Mom got dad some crackers that he likes to go with his soup and then they went to Petco where they looked around and there was a baby sunnie and a baby Green cheek conure,last week they were divided by the barriers they have to separate different species but today the green cheek and the sunnie were together in the one cubicle and they were so funny!Skin sis kept taking pics of them,the sunnie would roll over on his back and the green cheek would stand right close by him and play with him,they were so cute and Mom wants to know why we won't lay on our backs and play like that!After Petco they went to Christmas Tree shops where Mom bought some kitchen utensils as her stirring spoons all broke,these look sturdy enough so hopefully they won't break when she's making a heavy batter!Then they went to Dairy Queen as skin sis wanted to get some ice cream there as this is their last week before they close on Sunday.Then they went to Mashpee and to Walgreens and Mom got some tomato basil bisque soup and some dawn dish detergent.By the time they made it back to Nana's house it was nearly six o'clock and they unloaded the car with Nana's purchases and dropped Nana off and picked me (Dixie)up and skin sis then took Mom home,by the time Mom got home it was 6:30pm and she had to clean our cages,dad had given everyone their snacks and he was worried because he couldn't feed Kallie any pellets as there were none left.Mom found some sample packages she brought home from the vets of Harrison's for both Kallie and Candida,then she got dinner for dad,put all the things away that she bought and got dad's lunch and coffee ready to go for the morning!She then got us in our sleeping boxes and ready to snuggle down for the night,Candida and me(Dixie)under my blanket around Mom's neck,while (I) Dixie was at Nana's I got three doses of my different meds and (I) Dixie have two more to go for tonight before I have to start all over again tomorrow morning!It's after eight pm here and Mom is just starting to do our blogs!

Mom had called the vet early this morning and she was in an emergency situation with a patient and then had another one so she was going to call Mom back when she was done but when it came to 3 oclock and Mom never heard anything she called back and the secretary told her that she would call around 5 tonight as she had a lot of patients and couldn't come to the phone,well,Mom was just getting done with dinner and the phone rang about 5:30 and it was the vet and she told Mom it was an infection that she had cut off and it was due to my beak or sinuses and I would have to finish off the bottle of enrofloxacin which is practically the whole bottle save for the last two weeks I've been taking,as I don't get that much of it in the syringe and I have to finish the eye drops off which there aren't much of those left as every time Mom tries to get one drop out two or three come out at once and get on my head and not in the incision!How awesome that your sweet daddy made bacon and eggs,I can just smell the house now and that bacon and eggs!You can't beat eating those eggs!And to have gotten your own egg sammich makes up for not being able to join the parronts for brunch!They didn't get one of those!That is the problem with going on planes or boats there's always that stiff security now because of all these idiots who try and pull some stunt that's life threatening!I can just see them now going through each pill that your sweet Momma has with her checking for something!That sure would hold up the whole cruise for sure!Its a dark dreary dismal rainy day here,a day which makes you feel like sleeping.It was 61 here today and tomorrow is going to be the worst with heavy downpours all day long and Mom is going out with me to zumba and then they are off on their errand runs as I visit with my cousin Trixie II,we sure won't be in the sun room tomorrow!I'm sure glad Mom has the heat on in our room too!Mom can't wait to visit with your sweet Momma tonight!

We woke up to bright sunshine after a frigid night of temperatures of 36,the morning was cold as winter until the sun came up and warmed it up a little.We got as high as 54 degrees and no higher.Mom went out and took the hummingbird feeder off the hanger on the deck and emptied it out and cleaned it up and put it away for next spring.Then Mom worked on some of her chores around the house,cleaned our cages out good as she was too busy yesterday with the grill and then the clean up that goes with grilling.My dad cleaned out the grill and put that into the sun room til next spring so all the signs of summer are gone.We are in for a week of rain again starting with tomorrow and going right through Friday with Wednesday being the worst with all the heaviest downpours coming then,of course when Mom has to go out so she can get soaked!We will be no higher in temperatures than the mid fifties and hopefully we won't be getting anymore 30 degree nights!Skin bro came over to visit this morning with Mom and he's excited to possibly be getting a job with Macombers a trash and septic company in the Mills here.They will call him on Thursday or Friday to see what he can do,he's worked for several trash companies before so he has skills in this area.Mom put me back on my antibiotics and eye drops as I was in too much pain all weekend to stand for the oral dose from the syringe.I'm not too happy about that but that's what the vet wanted.Mom doesn't want me to finish the whole bottle of Enrofloxacin,what does your sweet Momma think,there's nearly a full bottle left,I only get a small portion twice a day.Mom is nervous about what it could do to me,its so toxic!She doesn't mind giving me the eye drops as they are nearly done.EWWWWW!That turk poop is big and messy and how can that turk stand on top of Judy's car like that?It looks like your sweet Momma was up to her elbows in poop all day today all kinds of poop!How scary to have a big Zon sitting on your head like that!Jeez!I sure do hope that Elvis got off without and beak marks all over your poor Momma!Now that's the way to relax,go and cuddle with your sweet daddy watching football!Both Mom and I just can't thank your sweet Momma enough for sending me my medicine!I'd rather have that any day over the Enrofloxacin I just don't want to take that anymore!My eye is looking really good now like there was never a bump there!

We woke up to a dull gray day here this morning and was it ever freezing and it only got up to 55 degrees.Mom had a busy day today trying to get the food ready for the last BBQ we are going to have for the season.Mom cut up lots of onions and fresh tomatoes from Nana's garden,lettuce and got all the condiments out for the hamburgers and hot dogs,then when the grill was ready she put on a steak,turkey breasts thinly sliced,hamburgers,hot dogs and a mixed veggie platter that she grilled.It was freezing out 50 degrees and cloudy with no sun.Both skin sibs came over and as Mom was grilling they were taking some of skin sis's things out of the cellar and sun room to take back to a storage unit they got.Skin sis still has her big game table and her desk in the sun room she has to come back for and all her things in the spare room which is Mom's work out area to get rid of.After they got through eating outside they decided to have dessert inside which was Pepperidge Farms gold cake with chocolate frosting.We all had to stay inside our warm room while they were outside.And we couldn't join them for dessert because of the chocolate!Then Mom got all her houseplants inside and as she was doing that dad got the deck furniture into the sun room for the winter. Mom got the deck cage back out into the sun room for the winter also.How sad to see an empty deck now!Tomorrow is going to be a freezing winter morning with temperatures only at 36 and our lows for tonight will be 38 so they say so far.
The vet told Mom it had to do with my sinuses a blockage or plug as she called it!Candida is such a little nipper thing,and loves to go for the ears and the neck a little Dracula!Mom sends Candida back to the playgym every time she does that to her!Candida was mad because she didn't get her daddy time tonight as they were all outside and she was locked in her cage while they had dessert because of the chocolate frosting on the cake.Mom is going to deep clean our cages tomorrow as she had no time with everyone coming over and her having to slice and dice all the veggies for the BBQ and get everything ready and then having to cook and grill everything too out in the cold!Now that's going some getting to watch some football with dad and getting all those fantastic scritches!

Anthony sends you all his love and thanks for the birthday hugs from you all,they really made his day so much brighter!Mom and I can just picture your Mom with that sweet Too eggspression on her face strutting her stuff in complete Too fashion all over work!Mom got us all up early this morning so dad could drive Mom and me to my follow up vet visit which was for 9:20 this morning!Mom quickly cleaned our cages and room,fed us and made coffee for my dad,then she wrapped me in my favorite blankie which she put around her neck and then she put her coat over that and off we went!When we got there there were no cars in the parking lot so dad got out of the car and walked the distance to the door and found it was open so he went and told Mom and she went inside with me.I refused to come out for the vet tech,it felt so good just snuggling with Mom so close and felt good on my painful toes.The vet tech took me into the back room to examine my eye and then came back out and told Mom that it was healing nicely and that I'm to finish off the bottle of antibiotics and eye drops.Mom never gave me any of them at all today just my aspirin which I readily take,Mom isn't very happy with giving me the Enrofloxacin any more,I'll be on that for months the bottle barely has a dent in it!She wants to know what your sweet Mom thinks about it first before she will continue giving me any more.Please say hello to Aunt Jeanne and Angel for us all here!Candida sends Angel a pineapple GCC loving!She flew into the kitchen tonight and beat up on Mom,biting her ear hard and then her neck,Mom says she's gonna dress her up as Dracula for Halloween,she knows how to bite your neck really good that's for sure!I'll bet Doo had a greyt time loving on your awesome Mom while he watched your sweet daddy sleeping!Do our daddy's sound alike!That's what my daddy does all the time,napping and sleeping on the couch!Mom is trying to type my blogs and has Candida's hot feathers butt on her arm which makes it hard for her to do any decent typing!

We woke up to a bright sunny day with the highs of 68.Mom got us up early and fed and cleaned our cages and collected the trash,and loaded it in her car,got dad his breakfast and coffee and left him something for his lunch and got me(Dixie) and my meds in the car and took off to Nana's house.I(Dixie) got to spend the day in Nana's sunroom with my cousin Trixie II while Nana and Mom went to the dump and the bank.Then they went back to Nana's and then Mom helped to show Nana how to change her vacuum cleaner bag,and re calibrate her heat box and they waited for Anthony to get back from his job search so they could go out for his birthday.Finally late in the afternoon he was done with the job search for the day and he picked up my dad and brought him to Nana's house where Mom and Nana were waiting and they all went out to Bobby Byrnes to have a late late lunch to celebrate Anthony's birthday today,Anthony got the pork chops with mashed potatoes and carrots and Nana got the meat loaf with mashed potatoes and carrots and Mom got,the baked schrod with carrots and rice pilaf and dad got the fish and chips with cole slaw.Then from there they went to Stop&Shop to get Anthony a birthday cake,they went back to Nana's and called Shiloh who got out of work at 5:00pm to meet them there so she could celebrate with them.They had cake and ice cream and coffee and then by the time everyone was ready to go it was near 7:00pm.Mom had to take care of us when she got home,clean our cages and give us some more food as dad fed us and gave everyone their peanuts and she cleaned the kitchen from dad's lunch dishes and our breakfast dishes etc and then got us all to bed and here we are now just starting to get our blogs done!Mom is going to have another early day tomorrow as she has to take me(Dixie)to the vet in the morning early for a follow up visit for my eye.
Now that's the way to get through a day at work,to look just like a white Too and act like one too!Mom thinks that's an awesome way to get through a hard day at work and wishes she thought of doing that years ago when she dreaded going to work!LOL!I'm hoping that I don't have to take anymore of those yucky meds especially the antibiotics,I love my aspirin and Mom is having to give me more as I'm in such pain with the cold and dampness we've had here lately!I will let you know how it all went tomorrow when I get home!Mom and I both so appreciate all the prayers you are sending to me,it means so much to me and Mom!

We are so happy that your sweet Mom's physical went really well!We are all so praying that your sweet Momma's cyst will reabsorb in her body!Mom feels so bad that she can't be there to help her out!It is so hard to work with a bump on your knee like that!Especially kneeling on the hard wood floors or tile floors!
This morning started out bright and sunny and warm with the temperature of 72.Then by mid morning the sun disappeared and the clouds took over and the temperatures dropped to 70 then to 68 and the torrential downpours came!It got dark as night and it was raining so hard you could barely see out the windows!Mom had to put our light on in our room so we could see.Mom worked on vacuuming the whole house and then making zucchini pizza with the zucchini that Nana gave her from her garden,collected the trash in the house to load in the car tomorrow to take to the dump and cleaned up some of the clutter that is in the house,Mom is hoping to get more clutter and junk out by next week.Mom told my dad that she needs a good birdhouse for the wild birds as the one she bought a year ago is so bad the whole top floor came off it and the poor birds have no where to go!Mom told dad she wanted a bird house made of real wood not that cheap stuff that the minute you put it outside in the elements it gets wrecked,so maybe he will make her a nice birdhouse for our wild birds here,they are always having their nests and raising their babies in the birdhouses that Mom has for them and since Mom had the three trees in our front yard taken down that held all our bird houses we are down to only the one free standing one in the rhododendron bushes!Mom would hate to see those poor birds in the freezing cold this winter and the snow!
Oh that really sounds scary that presentation from that someone wanting to buy the business from your sweet Mom's boss!Please let me know how that one turns out!Now that's how you should be spending your day,snuggling with your sweet daddy watching movies!I can't wait to stop taking all these meds and only take my aspirin as that is the one that really makes me feel better!

just flying over with a big beaky kiss for you on 'Toos Day! What have you been up 'too? hehehe!
Well, you know I'm in the KB and we are doing a lot of fishing over there. And in Mexico, tonite we're having a big storm. There was a tremendous thunderclap a few minutes ago and it scared the poop out of us birds and kitties.
We had 3 kittens hatched on our porch back in March and they are big now and a week ago, someone left 3 of the tiniest, cutest kittens on our doorstep. So now there are three more little ones. The older ones are getting used to them which is good. One of the older ones was out chasing the possum in the yard tonite in the rain! Cats aren't too smart, I think!
Not much else going on. The snowbirds are starting to come down to their winter beach homes. Mom started giving free english classes in the village again and is planning to do a haunted hike for the students who she takes trick and treating. They will go to a few houses on our block and as they are out walking around, other people will jump from behind bushes and scare them. hehehe!
Sweet dreams, I'll be dreaming of YOU!

Mom and all of us couldn't believe such a sweet thing like you and Doo being such evil characters!How awful to portray a sweet too as vicious and nasty like that!We all preferred the first RIO!I don't blame you for being mad at Doo for getting to come out and sharing some trifle with your sweet Momma and strutting his stuff about it too in front of you all!And to keep rubbing it in like that by letting you all know just how yummy yummy it really was and what you all missed out on too!I think you should have had some pecan pie with your sweet daddy!Its only fair!Oh your poor sweet Momma having had another can of whoop ass in work today!And now you have to be under the dictatorship of Moggie flying all around you and keeping everyone in line!Mom has an appointment for me for early Saturday morning at the vet for my follow up visit to see just how its going with me,and hopefully I won't have to take anymore of those meds anymore,I guess I'm going back to zumba with Mom on Wednesday and then to Nana's to visit with Trixie II while they all go out running their errands!My footies are all twisted again and Mom keeps having to massage my toes just so that I can stand and I've been getting extra doses of my aspirin and that always makes me feel so much better,Mom can always tell by the way I climb up and down to and from my perch and I never can wait til Mom comes for me to snuggle with me all night!I love being held next to her and staying off my feet all night long even if I have to share my time with Candida!Mom wants to know if your Mom can send her the recipe for the almond breeze shake for Nana,Mom can't seem to find where she filed it and Nana is wanting to try it and can't remember the measurements!She put it away last week and then can't find what she did with it now!

This morning was a bright sunny cold day with the temperatures of 55 degrees and as Mom was trying to get the chores done she got a call from skin sis who was on her way over with her laundry and as she hung up with her she looked out the window and skin bro was here with his big monster truck in the driveway.So Mom quickly finished all our cages and cleaned our room the best she could before skin sis came with her laundry.Both skin sibs were here for the BBQ Mom was having.Mom collected all the laundry to have it ready for when skin sis came over with hers and then she went out to the freezer in the garage and pulled out a steak,along with a package of hamburgers,hot dogs,chicken breasts and turkey burgers.Then she got the rolls and the tray and all the condiments and the BBQ tools.Skin sis came and then Mom helped her to find some chair she was looking for that she left here when she moved out and after searching the three rooms she's still got stuff in she finally found it in the sunroom among her other stuff!Then Mom helped take some of the laundry down cellar and while skin sis started on the laundry,Mom went outside and started the grilling.They all ate outside and were freezing,I can't believe they would stay out there like that,silly parronts and skin sibs!We are no longer allowed to join them because its not warm anymore.Mom cleaned up the dishes and brought out the dessert,blueberry creme cake,and as soon as they finished it and Mom cleaned up those dishes,they all came in and watched RIO2 and we got to join them for that!It was a colorful movie and we didn't like it as much as the first one though!Skin bro left around 6:30pm and skin sis collected the laundry from the dryer and she and Mom folded it and then she went home after that.Mom is hoping for a quiet day tomorrow where she can get what she has to done in the house!
Does that praline punkin cheesecake trifle sound sooo beak watering good!That sure sounds like you really did have your own Parrot Palooza there today with everyone out together and getting along really well!Mom is hoping to have just one more BBQ next week.Mom made enough meats to last the week she hopes,skin sis took quite a bit of it all home with her.That Christmas trifle with the rum sounds even better to me!Please tell Aunt Jeanne and Angel we send them all our love from everyone here!Mom is giving me lots of warm foot soaks and this cold weather(its 41 degrees here tonight)really makes my toes hurt.Mom and I just can't thank you enough for all the prayers your sweet Mom said for me in church!That means so much to me and my Mom!We love you all soo sooo much!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses,Loving you always and forever,my sweet fister,Love,Dixie

Oh I have missed you more than anything!I sure do hope that this won't ever happen to us again!We too are having the most dreary,dismal,dark,down pouring rainy day here also,even all the outside birds are soaking wet right down to their skin!And its barely 50 degrees outside and the house is so chilly that Mom has the heat box going non stop right now!I'm glad she caved and put our heat on in our Bird Room for us a few weeks back!I loved going to zumba class with Mom and Shiloh!You should see all those silly people dancing and sweating profusely and the music was so loud!I'll bet you would've been the best dancer in that class for sure!In fact that's all I could think of while I was sitting on top of the gym equipment in my carrier,picturing you doing your Too dancing boogie!I was trying to peek out from the screen in my carrier to tell Mom to buy me some fresh pineapples and other good things I liked but she wouldn't listen to me!Mom is having to give me an eggstra dose of my aspirin meds because my toes are all balled up and are very painful.She hates having me on the Enrofloxacin and I have one more week to go then she's gotta call the vet for a follow up visit and see just what it was I had and I sure hope I don't have to have anymore of those horrible meds,I do like my aspirin meds and have no problem at all with those,I simply hate the meds the vet gave me!YUCK!
Please tell Aunt Jeanne and Angel we all said hello!And give them our love!
Mom wants to know if your awesome Mom will send my Mom the recipe for the almond breeze shakes for Nana,she put them somewhere and now can't find them and Mom can't seem to find the file she put it in on her computer!This time she'll put it in our Bird File!Nana is wanting to mix it up in her new blender but can't remember how much of what ingredient to use!
Loving you always and forever,my sweet fister! Sending you all my love along with warm wing hugs and soft beakie kisses,Love,Dixie

We woke up this morning to another dark dismal gray drizzly day and it was so cold here just barely 60 degrees and the wind was blowing fairly hard.Mom quickly collected the trash and loaded the car and then she came back and picked me up(Dixie) and went to Nana's house.I got to stay with my cousins Bella and Trixie II in Bella's bird room where Nana had the heat box going!It was nice and warm in there!Mom and Nana went off to the dump and then to the bank,and to Stop&Shop where Mom came back with two bags of charcoal that was marked down and lots of other good things that were marked down.Then they came home and had some coffee and something to eat then packed me up(Dixie)and headed off to the vet.Mom was a bit late because she got stuck behind someone who was going sooo slow and there was no way that she could pass them as it was a one lane road.When they got to the vet,Dixie(I) was weighed and then the vet looked at my eye bump and said it could be a mass or tumor that had to do with my sinuses and she took (me)Dixie out to another room where she cut the plug from the blockage out and applied Ofloxacin to my eye and then brought me back to Mom and I was given Enrofloxacin to take orally twice a day and the Ofloxacin two to three times a day.I have to come back for a recheck to see how everything is going in two weeks.When we left the vet we went to Stop&Shop in Sandwich and Mom and Nana got some things there and I got to go in the grocery store with them,no one noticed me as I was snuggled under Mom's coat!Then around three o'clock in the afternoon Mom and Nana had another late lunch before we headed home.Once Mom got home she got dad some dinner and unpacked the groceries,dad was there to bring them in from the car for her.It was so cold that Mom caved and put the heat on in our room.She put the heat box on in the tv room to get the chill out of the air.
Mom is so upset about my eye problem and is so afraid of the enrofloxacin and giving it to me again for two weeks two times a day!She would rather not give it to me but doesn't know what to do!Mom will give you the report on Nana tomorrow she has to give me the topical eye drops in the cut the vet made in my eye and I don't like that at all!Poor Aunt Tanya with Moggie nearly giving her a heart attack like that!Mom sure knows what that's like!All of us just can't thank you for all the prayers you send our way you just don't know how much they all mean to both Nana and me!We love you soo sooo much!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Loving you always and forever my sweet fister,Dixie

Oh would I just love that little red wagon and having Moggie coming here with those animal crackers for me!Mom had to get me some peanut butter cheerios because my dad never thought of giving me those!Ohhh OUCH!Does that hurt what Doo did to your poor sweet Momma!We are getting sick and tired of all this rain and dark days and the cold!I loved going outside and now it looks like those days are gone!Mom has been busy trying to get the chores done so she can get out at a reasonable time tomorrow morning and get the dump errands done and what she never got done in the soaking rain the other day!Then I have a vet visit at one in the afternoon because of that big red bump on my eye ring,all the warm compresses haven't worked and Mom is afraid it might be a tumor,she's just so nervous about it!It sure looks like Moggie is trying to work out with your sweet Momma by making her chase him all over the room like that!Nana is still having those coughing fits and tonight had to hang up early while she was talking to Mom because she was really coughing.Ohhhh no!Not the birdicures on Saturday?Mine will be coming up soon,I just had mine done two weeks ago!And your daddy don't like for you to dig your nails into his flesh?That's not fair,so you have to wait for daddy time til Saturday,thats a long time coming!I'll have to get my Mom to get me over to the KB again,she's been so busy between going out and chores,I sure hope she decides to stay home this weekend!

We woke up to a very dark,dreary,dismal pouring rainy day here this morning and it was 59 degrees.Mom got us up early,fed and cleaned us and then got ready for skin sis to pick her up to go to zumba and then from there they went to pick up Nana and went to Shaw's to pick up some groceries and then to TJMaxx to look for flannel nightgowns for Nana and no one had any just flannel pajama's and pant's type sets!Then they went to the bank and then to Stop&Shop where Nana and skin sis bought a few items,it was so cold in the grocery stores and it was even colder when you walked from the parking lot in the heavy downpours and having to dodge all the puddles and cars splashing you as you walked by and then when you got into the stores you froze!Mom has no idea why they keep those grocery stores so ice cold for!It was so hard driving because of all the drivers on the opposite side kept splashing all the puddles on your windshield and for a second or two blinding you from seeing anything!Its supposed to be like this for the rest of the week here too!Skin sis had to put the heat on in the car just to dry them all off and to keep them from freezing!Dad came home first and came and gave everyone of us a treat but I had nothing to eat and Dad told Mom that she never left him anything to give me,Mom forgot to buy the animal crackers so she gave me some peanut butter cheerios.
BC is really slow tonight and the cycling is just driving us crazy,I sure hope that we can get all our visits in before we get shut down entirely like we did the other night!
Mom can understand how busy your sweet Momma must be with everything going on all at once!We are praying that your sweet daddy's VA appointment goes smoothly and that there will be no major problems!

  Hi Cookie
While we were outside yesterday at the BBQ we were trying to see the rat family as we usually do coming and going from the rhododendrons where his holes are all dug up underneath them to the bird feeder,but we never saw him the whole time we were all out there,my daddy chopped the rhodies down pretty good from the bottom up so we can see now underneath them and we haven't seen them for a while and all the steel wool is still there that my dad put in all the holes to make them leave!Some of the steel wool they threw out of the holes!Mom figures that if the rhodies weren't hiding them they'd up and leave so they wouldn't have any protection from the weather,snow,rain,etc!So far we haven't heard from Stuart Little either,Dad wanted Mom to put our snack bowl back on the small playgym to catch him but so far nothing in the sticky trap behind the tv.Angel sounds really fresh like Candida is!Now how can Angel bite your sweet Mamma after all she is the one feeding him and cleaning his condo!Just what is it that your sweet daddy has that all the fids just love being with him!Even my cousin Trixie II was all over him that day and she never goes to anyone!Would Candi love to be in the Viper Pilot Academy,she just loves to show off her flying skills with her fancy aerial stunts!Candi will just love to have a nice nickname and to be flying under Moggies guidance is getting her all eggcited!
Last night when skin sis was leaving we heard all kinds of sirens and ambulances flying by on the main road here(Rte149)and they were loud and constant!Dad put his scanner on and heard from it that two sky divers had crash landed.Then later on at the 10:00pm news our town(The Mills)was the breaking story,and it was a teacher and student who were supposed to land at the airport(which is a 2 minute ride from here)and they wound up in front of a neighbors garage on the hard concrete ground there,they were tandem diving!Mom sees them all the time jumping from their planes while she is hanging laundry and we get to see them while we are on the deck,apparently their parachute only opened half way.There was no info on how old they were or who they were as of late last night,they may have more on it tonight.

Dad put the sticky trap behind the TV in the TV room where we don't go,and we aren't allowed in there without supervision anyway and Mom and dad are both conscientious about those things too!Mom just doesn't want to see another Stuart Little in our house again,it makes her so nervous because he just disappeared like nothing!We are always so happy to take you with us to the Milonga,I just love going anywhere with our eggstended family and I got to talk to you while Carter and Kallie chatted up a storm together and Peepers and Moggie enjoyed each others company to the max doing their tiel talk dialects together!I can bet that Angel is having so much fun on your sweet daddy's head!Candida loves to do that to my daddy also!Maybe you should take Candida and train her for the Viper Pilot Academy,you should see her flighttime antics flying between things and over things and landing smack dab on the dining table when Mom calls her to come back outta the kitchen!
What a beautiful summer day we had here,the sun was out so bright and the temperatures went all the way to 77 degrees!Mom was so eggcited to feel it so warm outside and she quickly got the sheets off the bed and collected a small amount of laundry to wash together with skin sis's laundry.Skin sis came over early and brought some bacon cheddar burgers and Mom put boneless spare ribs and chicken burgers,hot dog and jalapeño sausages on the grill.We all got to join them for the BBQ on the deck in our deck cages and then Mom put us all in the stroller and Kallie rode the handle bar and we went for a walk with skin sis!It was such a beautiful day out and there was no one around on the streets as we were walking!Mom and skin sis got the laundry done and hung out on the line before we had the BBQ and Mom was busy making dad some fresh sandwiches for his lunch tomorrow for work and getting the coffee maker ready to go!Dad earlier in the morning had Mom show him how she wanted the rhododendrons cut and he spent the day cutting them back and now we can see the dilapidated bird house that the rhododendrons ate up!He only did part of it as he had to chop all the branches smaller so he could burn them when burning season starts again.There sure is a whole lot of them to do yet!Then when we got back from our stroller ride we all got a nice soaking shower and got to dry off in the warm sunshine.We were just so happy to be outside again having a shower and enjoying the warm sunshine and this will be the last of it for a while now so they say!

You always know that I will always take the whole flock with me to the Milonga tonight so don't even worry about it!I will come to pick you all up in a few minutes so get everyone ready and I'll be there to collect you all!Mom spent the day cleaning our small playgym and the acrylic cage outside!Mom was so upset when she came downstairs after her shower to get the tv room ready for us to come in and snuggle with her,when she put the light on and she heard a noise,she turned to look and there sitting on the playgym top perch,was a tiny mouse just looking at Mom with those black beady eyes,she screamed for dad to come in and at first he didn't see the mouse and when Mom gave him a container to get the mouse it flew up the curtains and disappeared behind the tv!So dad bought one of those sticky traps and put it behind the tv!
Poor little Angel wanting room service right away on the weekend!Maybe he's just lonely in a room by himself and he wants to hang out with all of you because he thinks you're all having a greyt time there!
I gotta get moving here so I can be there on time to pick you all up for the Milonga!
