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 is very upset,she just got back from the hospital,Nana fell today in her driveway while Shiloh was trying to shovel it for her and she broke her hip,she's going to have surgery tomorrow morning and Mom has no idea when she'll be back on BC for us.Mom hated to leave her in the hospital,they didn't have a room for her so Mom and Shiloh and Anthony had to leave her in the emergency room.She's in bad pain and the morphine made her sick.I'm so sorry this is so short,Mom can't think,she can't even get in touch with Nana at the hospital and has to try calling again in 15 minutes,they were at the hospital since late this afternoon,couldn't move her off the floor,Anthony helped to carry her out to his car,her left leg was in severe pain.I'm so sorry,Anthony is going to pick Mom up in the morning after he gets home from work to go back up for the surgery and be with her.
Please forgive me for being so short,its so late and Mom is so upset and beside herself and so worried about Nana.
Please pray that my Nana makes it through the surgery,Mom is so upset she's going to try and write down questions she needs to ask before the surgery tomorrow! Please forgive my shortness,Mom's head is ready to explode and she can't stop crying!

This morning was another start of a grey and dismal looking day,the highs for the day are 25 and the lows for the day will be -1.Right now its 21.Mom just finished getting us all cleaned and fed and our water bottles pulled to be sterilized and cleaned when skin bro called to tell Mom he was in the driveway,so Mom opened the door to let him in.She made him a scrambled egg breakfast with warm pan buttered toast and peach cobbler coffee.He went and got our fister Candida out and she shared his breakfast with him and peeled off all the butter on his toast and ate that and some of his eggs!While skin bro and Candida were eating Mom cleaned up the kitchen and got all the dishes and our water bottles ready to be sterilized and then she came and sat with skin bro while he finished eating.He stayed until noon time and then he took off to run some errands and Mom then continued on with her house chores and finally got to vacuum the whole downstairs as it was a mess from everyone coming and going yesterday and she finally got the cobwebs that were thick all over our big play gym in our bird room.From there she went on a cobweb hunt and vacuumed all the ceilings and corners up high and windows,just where do all these cobwebs come from?Mom says sometimes she feels like she lives in the Addams Family mansion!Oh how funny that must be to hear your sweet daddy talking like we talk on BC!Oh what a very long day for your poor parronts and especially your Mom having to get to work after that long trip into the Bronx like that with your daddy!Mom needs to get us more animal crackers as we are all out now and my daddy will have nothing to give me and Mario when he passes out our snacks on Wednesdays when Mom is gone.But Mom has been giving us corn bread and you should see that stuff disappear fast!They're calling for snow here tomorrow and into Wednesday and my dad had Mom load up his lunch cooler boxes with everything she could stuff in them just in case he doesn't get to come home tomorrow.I sure hope not,I can't stand to keep hearing Candida howling for him and whining!Mom can't wait for her visit with your sweet Mom tomorrow!

This morning is a dull dark morning and pouring rain and the highs of 36 and the lows of 23 and right now we are at 34.All the icicles are gone and some of the snow on the roofs have melted some and we survived the night and our house is still intact and our tv room roofs never caved in.Hopefully the rain that we'll be getting will completely melt all the snow before it starts to freeze up again.My dad is out there trying to clean up most of the snow and clear it all away from our mailbox while its slushy.And he's going to try and get any other snow away from the house and off the roofs if he can reach it.Now its snowing out and Mom is hoping that it doesn't amount to much.Skin sis is on her way down today to do laundry and to bake with Mom and she'll be bringing our frother and fister with her so we will get to visit today.Other than that it's going to be a quiet day and hopefully uneventful.Well it turned into a very eventful day here.My dad was digging out the mailbox when skin sis showed up with our brother and fister,as she was down the cellar getting her laundry in,skin bro came in,he was on his way back from Hyannis from a job interview at Sears in the Mall.Then Mom gave Celine a beak trim with the dremmel,and both she and Peepers got nail trims.Then the phone rang and Dad was called out to work and then Mom and skin sis started baking,they made brownies,coconut blondies,simple smores bars,corn bread,pineapple right side up cake.As the last two recipes were baking in the oven,Mom made both skin sibs and herself some lunch of stir fried turkey breast in caramelized onions,with lettuce and chipotle dressing in a wrap.Then Mom served a sample of the things they made and by the time they were finished it was time for the skin sibs to leave so Mom gave them each containers to take half of what she and skin sis made.After they left,Mom cleaned up the kitchen,all the baking dishes,mixing bowls,utensils and put the rest of what wasn't taken in containers and got everything cleaned and put away.Now Mom is waiting on dad to come home and as usual she has no idea if and when he'll be coming home tonight.Our weather went from rain to snow and then we had some sun late in the day.Mom brought us some cornbread for a snack and was that so good.It sure sounds like you had quite the day there today with everyone out and about and that Petey,whats with him not wanting to go out in the snow and get his business done?I thought all furballs loved being and playing in the snow?Tell him to put his boots on then and stop leaving presents in the hallway!At least we don't do that!Peepers is very happy to be with Baby Girl and he had such a greyt time with her last night as did we all being together all our families in one place!Moggie is one smart guy to have taught them both how to whistle and sing,now Peepers has a partner to sing his Pirates of Penzance with!I was so eggcited to see that I won for our picture last night!Me and Little Angel are doing the happy da

This morning was a bright sunny morning with our highs for the day to be 31 and our lows to be 31,what's with that? Right now its 30 degrees and we just lost the sunshine moments ago and now it looks like the snow will be moving in soon.My dad was out on the lowest roof,the tv room where he could drill some holes in the ice there to make a place for the water to go through for the rain we're supposed to get tomorrow.But the drill wouldn't go in far enough so he finally had to quit.Then he came in and was devising a plan of escape for us if and when the roof caved in in the tv room.He's leaving everything unlocked so we will have a way out and Mom is getting quite nervous about that.She doesn't want to see our house in trouble or in danger.She doesn't want anything to happen to our house at all.We are still getting mail in the box that Mom put out there on Thursday and I guess that's the way it's going to be for now as the mail trucks can't get near our mail box and they won't get out of their trucks to put the mail in the box.Mom cleaned our cages this morning and fed us our warm pastene/egg/veggie mix and most of us ate it all so far.Mom's been busy mopping up after my dad as he comes in and out of the house with his big yellow snow covered boots.Mom is so disenchanted with this winter and has given up on washing any of the floors until all this snow is gone and they'll be no more tracking in the snow and ice on boots,shoes etc.The wind is starting to pick up out there too and we can only hope that our dad won't have to go back to work tonight when it begins snowing here again.We are hoping to get to the Milonga on time but now that all depends on when my dad will be working and Mom will be having to get his things ready for him to leave again.Oh did you luck out again thanks to the snow on getting those birdiecures done!Petey is such a wussie for sure not wanting to go outside in the snow,I thought all furballs loved to play in the snow!And who wouldn't love to wear a warm coat or sweater when they go outside in the cold?My Mom sure doesn't blame your sweet Momma for not wanting to go outside after she's had to deal with going outside and freezing to get to work all week!It sure sounds like your room service was delayed like ours is on weekends when Mom and dad love to sleep in a little and take their time with getting things done!I can't wait to see you at the Milonga tonight and have a beakful of those awesome cookies you're bringing!

This morning was a bright sunny but freezing morning with the starting temps of 6 degrees,our highs for the day 16 and our lows 7.My dad finally came home from work from last night at 5:00am this morning and he was starving so Mom got him a bowl of cereal and then she and dad went back to bed for a while before Mom had to get ready to leave to take the trash and all the recyclables to the dump and collect Nana's stuff for the dump also.Mom's car was so full she could barely fit anymore stuff in it from the back seat to the trunk.She took care of us first before she left,fed and cleaned our cages and left the radio on for us got dad something to eat and did what dishes were left in the sink and then she left.When she got to Nana's house,she loaded all of Nana's trash and recyclables in her car also and had to take some things out to fit more trash and recyclables in,(Our car seat)and some other things so everything could fit in right.It was getting late so they went to Church in Falmouth to go to the Stations of the Cross first,then Mom went to the bank,and got her car filled with gas,she was riding on fumes,then to the post office to mail out her bill(our mail person doesn't do that right now as she can't get out of the truck)then they went to the dump,(it was freezing there)then to Stop&Shop and they got some groceries to make dinner with for tonight and got a few other clearance buys,then to Walgreen's where Mom bought 35 rolls of toilet paper that was on sale and was well needed as we were on the last roll,then as it was 2:00pm they went back to Nana's and had lunch.Nana made them a salad with fresh tomato and tuna with challa bread.Skin bro came in as they were finishing eating and he had some tea and custard pie with them,he had been on another job interview in West Falmouth at a grocery store there.He had come to Nana's to do his wash.Then Mom came home to find a sinkfull of dishes that dad had left from his lunch so Mom had to wash the pans,soup cup,breakfast bowl,coffee maker carafe and get it ready with coffee,and all our dishes from our breakfast from this morning,then put all the groceries away.And as soon as she gets done with dinner she'll be all ours to be with and snuggle with for the night.Mom is so cold she's not going to be far from the heat box.Dad tried chipping away at the ice in our driveway today and also tried getting some snow off our roof but he couldn't get much done as the rake he used was too short and didn't reach far enough!Oh I'm coming over there for those cookies that Uncle Dave baked!I can just smell them right now!I can't wait to go to the Milonga and be with you tomorrow too!

This morning was bright and sunny with the highs of 28 and the lows of 3. Right now its 10.Mom had just got done feeding us and cleaning our cages when Anthony called to tell her he was in the driveway so she opened the door for him and made him breakfast of French Toast and apple pie coffee. While Mom was cooking he took our baby fister Candida out and played with her.Anthony stayed a while longer after he ate and then he took off to look for work in Sandwich as he's been transferred to Sagamore as they are eliminating jobs in Yarmouth where he's working now.It was either that or commute to Brockton everyday which is over the Bridge and quite a distance away from here or take the chance of getting laid off.Hopefully he'll get this job.Right now its snowing again and Mom is none too happy to see this.My dad had to go to work at 2:00am this morning and didn't even have much time to sleep and he just called Mom to tell her that he has to go back to work for 10:00pm tonight for snow removal so when he gets home at 4:00pm its going to be dinner,shower and bed again.This is the winter from Hell for us and it seems like its never going to end or stop snowing.The sun has disappeared and Mom was hoping that it would stay out long enough to melt some of the snow on our roofs.Mom is going to spend the rest of the day trying to catch up on her house chores and calling roofers to see what it takes to get the snow off our roof.Mom called the Post Office to find out why we weren't getting our mail lately and they told her at the post office that the roads are so bad in our development that its hard for the mail truck to get down these roads with all the ice ruts and maneuvering the truck is quite difficult so they told Mom to put a box or a container out with our house number on it and put it close enough for the mail person to throw the mail into,that's kind of hard as the mountains of snow are about 5 feet high.Mom went out and put a box out there and is hoping it doesn't blow away on her on top of the mountain by the mail box.Then Mom called the roofing companies and one told her that they were very busy and quite behind with everyone calling about their roofs.She was told not to try and remove the ice from the roof as that would damage the shingles and if you put any kind of ice melt up there it may do damage to the roof shingles and the gutter pipes.When will this winter ever end?
Oh how awful that vitamin gel sounds just yucky and awful,and the two of you bit your poor sweet Momma for her giving it to you!Oh isn't it so awesome to have your amazing Momma home with you and having the heater on is so cozy and getting to snuggle and watch tv is simply the best ever!We just may be getting our birdie spa on Saturday also,if my daddy isn't off and running to work again.Your incredible Mom made my Mom's day last night and it was sooo good to hear her awesome voice and talk with her!Mom so looks forward to her visits so much!All of us were love you all ther

This morning is a snowy morning with the temperatures highs being 27 and the lows at 19 and that is where we're at right now.Mom was busy getting our cages cleaned and our breakfast served when she noticed skin bro's car in the driveway so she opened the door for him,he was out there shoveling the driveway and so Mom went back inside and the phone rang and it was the neighbor across the street wanting Mom to tell skin bro to come over and shovel off her stairs and walkway to her driveway.So Mom went back out and told skin bro and as soon as he finished Mom's driveway he went over and did the neighbors.Then when skin bro came back inside Mom made him some coffee and some blueberry pancakes,and he ate all 8 pancakes with Candida helping him here and there.He stayed til near noon time and then after he left Mom vacuumed our room and the rest of the house and washed the dishes and the griddle from the pancakes.Its snowing here like mad and my dad says that its going to keep snowing all day into the night around 9:00pm.Oh joy,and when this adds up again where are we going to put it?Mom is getting so sick of all this snow and cold.And the ice and snow on our roofs is keeping on collecting with no roof rakes in sight as they are all sold out and they don't think they'll be getting anymore in stock in the stores.This is getting really scary now.My dad just came home after nine o'clock tonight after being at work since 7am and he was so tired all he wanted to do was come home take a shower and eat dinner,Mom was too tired to make him a big dinner and she didn't want to have to stay up late washing pots and pans and dishes so she gave him a turkey and gravy tv dinner with peas and mashed potatoes and a chocolate strawberry cake for dessert with whipped cream.Mom and I feel so bad that your poor sweet Momma had to work late again and to have another disaster at work again she must be so egghausted just like my dad is.I sure do hope you get your snuggle time in like everybirdie else is getting even Petey!Aunt Sunny was so sweet to make that picture of you and Picabo you two are so precious together,and it looks like you'll be a winner too in the contest!I too loved the Valenbird day pic of you two with the hands and the heart also!Mom and I just love that picture that your awesome Mom took of me!I'm getting all kinds of compliments on it too!Mom is so done with this snow and this winter!We're wondering if we'll ever get to see summer ever again!Its going to be in the single digits on Friday and Mom is hoping to get out to the dump then as all our trash is surely collecting after not getting to the dump in two weeks again as it was constantly snowing every Friday here!Mom can't wait for her visit with your awesome Momma tomorrow,she'll be home in time for sure!

This morning was a cold bright sunny one with the temperatures of single digits.Our highs for the day will be 17 and our lows will be 9.Mom got dad off to work at 4:30am and then she went down cellar to check the washer to see if it would spit out ice at her so she warmed it up down there with the radiant heater for a while to see if that would work.Then she got us up and cleaned our cages and fed us and this morning Mario actually ate most of everything in his bowl,and Kallie got a chicken drumstick bone to chew on.Then skin bro called Mom to tell her he was in the driveway and she let him in and made him a breakfast of scrambled eggs and pan fried English muffins.He stayed till nearly noon time and played with Candida and then took off to shovel Nana's driveway.Mom was going to go out and shovel off the deck and walkway to the mailbox and my dad called and told Mom he was on his way home at 1:00pm. and he would shovel the deck and walkway instead.Mom went back downstairs and checked the washer and it didn't spit out ice at her so she put in a wash with mainly all of dad's 30 pairs of socks and the rest of the laundry and the sheets.Mom is cold enough from being in the cellar doing the laundry she's so glad that my dad is out there doing the shoveling! She's waiting for it to dry so we have a chance to get some of our visits in.Now they're saying we're supposed to have only 3-4 inches of snow tomorrow but we shall see about that!We get my daddy for the whole night tonight at least until that storm comes around tomorrow.Then it may be that we don't see him for another night and day again!We think that's so funny that Elvis likes that little dog we sent him with his name on it!Teal'c is so funny trying to push your sweet Mom around to make her go faster for room service.That portrait that is on my page is the one your sweet Momma took of me!Everyone really loves it too!We just love your portrait with Picabo,you two are so sweet together!

All last night we could hear the wind whipping against the house and the snow was blowing around out there.The trees are really bending low with the wind and Mom is going to hurry and send everyone our blogs before we get cut off entirely!Its 18 degrees out there right now the highs will be 27 and the lows will be -1 degree. Our dad is still out there and things seem to be getting worse,we are in for another storm on Tuesday into Wednesday with more snow possibly 5 inches or so and there is no place to put any of it right now.Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and floor and we couldn't even look out our windows as all the windows are plastered with snow.The wild birds are out there at the feeders in all this wind and snow and are getting blown around,why don't they go into the birdhouse and get out of this weather?Mom raised the heat in the house so that if we should lose power we will be warm until she can get the coal/wood stove going.I and Candida got to sleep with Mom last night on the couch and Kallie got to stay in his sleeping box in the tv room.My daddy kept calling Mom every minute that he could during the night making sure we all still had our power which we do.Now what a big baby Blue is afraid of that new vacuum that isn't even moving,I do agree with you,the bigger they are the more wimpier they get!That is so funny that Moggie and Teal'c were working on some new lessons for the Viper Pilot School and both Josh and Blue are scared of them!Oh does my Mom now all about those anxiety attacks when she can't find one of us either!Don'tcha just love all those tunes from the 4 Seasons!I just love Oh What a Night(Late December 63)!You just can't help doing a little dance to that neat tune!Candida had better watch that beak of hers or Mom threatens to dremmel it so its not so sharp!We probably won't see our daddy until mid summer at this rate with all the non stop storms and blizzards we're getting here lately!

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY TO YOU AND THOSE AWESOME PARRONTS OF YOURS!
It started out as a bright sunny morning with temperatures of 21 degrees.The highs for the day will be 32 and the lows will be 28. Mom got us all up early today and cleaned our cages,fed us our warm bean mix and then vacuumed our floor and then she vacuumed the whole house.Our dad got his things ready to go to work in a few hours and then he fed the wild birds and filled their feeders so they would have something to eat while he was gone.Then he went walking down the street to find the nice guy who plowed the driveway for Mom a few weeks back to see if he would plow the driveway for Mom after this storm,but he got the bobcat driver instead,so now whenever it snows and he does the neighbor across the street he'll automatically do our driveway so Mom doesn't have to be out there.Now the sun is gone and we are expecting the snow to start in about an hour or so.My dad is getting his things ready to stay the duration of the storm at work so we won't be seeing him again for awhile.
It started snowing here around 3:00 this afternoon and Anthony came and picked Mom up and Nana and they went out but came back home as soon as the snow started turning everything white.Mom is back home with us safe in the house and my dad is still out there working to keep the town safe.It looks like Mom won't get a Valentines day again this year because of the snow,dad will be working night and day and not coming home at all,so she's all alone with us.I'll get to sleep with Mom tonight on the couch.That Chatterbox Cafe sounds really interesting!Mom just loves those old 50's and 60's places!That's so funny that Petey doesn't detect his clindamycin meds in his foods and spit it out!Oh that sounds like what happened to my dad's car a few weeks back after buried under all that snow at work for four days!You are so right,when is spring ever gonna get here!I've had it with all this snow and no place to put it either!That new Shark must be so cool but not so cool for poor Blue!LOL!That bratbird fister of mine Candida bit Nana hard on her finger and made her bleed today!She is in dire threats of having her flights chopped for copping such birditude!

Sophie waddles up pulling her wagon full of boxes. 'Oatie and Makana were baking and made enough for all. There's peanut butter and oatmeal raisin.
We have had such a mild winter here!! Mom went to the garden to dig the carrots and only a couple had split. Boy are they sweet and crisp too!! Yeah, we had carrots and fresh peas today instead of our toast. That's all fine and all but she better remember to give us toast later!! Anyway, she also found lettuce starts and parsley as well as violas and pansies growing. Since it's to be tilled right away, she took all she could so we could enjoy some early yummies.
Mom is finally over her pneumonia after 3 antibiotics and 3 weeks. About time too! We were starting to worry about her. Now she's not happy to have so much cleaning to catch up on. I mean, all our cages need a good scrubbing as you can imagine and the house needs cleaning, dusting and whatever. Not that we birds care a whole lot but mom cares for some reason.
Sure wish we could relieve you of some of your snow! It's needed so badly here and you're stuck with it. Hoping all is going well and you're able to stay warm through all this. And more to hit you guys too. Take care of each other and your dear parronts.

This morning was a cold frigid morning and right now the highs will be 15 and the lows will be 4.We are hanging in at 9 degrees right now and even though the sun is out strong nothing is melting.Mom was supposed to go to the dump today and run errands with Nana but its way too cold to do any of those things right now.Anthony called Mom this morning and wanted to know if she would be there to pick him up at the car repair shop(he has his car there for an estimate on how much it will cost him to get it fixed)in Falmouth and Mom told him she was at home so he's already starting to walk from Falmouth to Mashpee to go to Nana's house.Mom feels so bad that he's having to walk all that way in this freezing cold but the ice bumps at the end of the driveway that are on the street are really bad and she doesn't want to get stuck again going out.Mom is so praying that he makes it to Nana's safely and doesn't get frozen.Then he's got to walk the whole way back again when his car is done being looked at.
Mom was going to do some laundry just to get my dad some socks as he's really running out of them but she's afraid that the washer will just spit out ice at her as its so cold in the cellar.She'll wait til later on in the day and see if the temperatures rise a little so she can do some laundry.Other than Mom being home with us all day again today its another uneventful day here and a bit boring.That is so funny that Petey still looks so stoned on all the meds he got from his dental cleaning yesterday!And he fits right in with you all with the shaved spot on his neck area so he can join you in the pluckers club and maybe your sweet Mom will spray him along with the rest of you with the Feather In!It sounds like we are both in the single digits this morning.Mom is so happy to have received the aspirin!They always shove it in the mail box so I don't know who brought it all the way over to the other side of the house and the garage!I'm so glad that dad found the box there or we'd never have known it was there unless we went out to the garage!Mario finally ate something this morning and Mom is hoping that he'll finish what's in his bowl today,she really gets nervous.That is so funny that your sweet daddy is taking the same drug as Petey for his dental work!That's so hilarious that he burps clindamycin all the way to East Orange so those donuts are much needed for him to get by it!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and vote #1043 for you!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Did I tell you that the other day McDonalds a fast food burger place here was giving away free food for the whole day if you drove up to the drive in window and called your sweetheart on the cell phone and told them you loved them!Well,my dad's co worker didn't want his wife to know that he was eating junk food so instead of calling her and telling her he loved her he called another co worker and told HIM he loved him!Can you imagine the look on the employees face when he said he loved his co worker?He got the free food for the whole night! My dad got to eat half the calzone,have a shower and get a half hour nap in before he had to go back to work.Does this mean I get to sleep with my Mom the whole night?
Well, the phone just rang and my dad is now off and running back to work,the snow is at least an inch and a half thick on the driveway and the start of our blizzard here is just beginning.

  Hi Cookie
Yaaaayyy! We finally got the package today late this afternoon!Dad came home and found it in the snow up by the garage door!Mom had gone out to the mail box and found nothing there eggcept the mail and she looked around in the snow and there was no box!Now why would they put it at our garage door when our front door is right on the street side!Oh Cookie Mom was just so blown away,when she opened it up and found the gigantic bottle of aspirin!Dixie wraps his wings around his Aunt Tanya and gives her the biggest GCC hug he can give!Thank you Thank you sooo sooo much!I love my aspirin and you just don't know how much you mean to me Aunt Tanya!EWWWW your sweet Parronts are taking Petey up to bed with them in the poopie frame of butt?Mario refused to eat at all today even when Mom gave him some rice he ate nothing all day so she's hoping that he'll decide to eat tomorrow again it seems he's eating every other day now and Mom can't figure it all out!And Bella and Trixie won't eat the Higgins mix that Nana bought for them yesterday either,they are driving her crazy also!
It was another dark dull day here today no sun and the temperatures highs for today are 31 the lows being 12.We are at 30 right now.It has already started to snow here but just lightly right now.Mom had a busy morning here with Dad calling and then the neighbor across the street wanting to come over and borrow some of dads tools to fix something with,so she sent her daughter over to get them and in the meantime she had wanted to see us,so Mom took her into our room and Kallie tried dive bombing her head!So Mom had to quickly grab him and put him in his cage.Then Anthony came over and Mom made him a big breakfast of cheese omelet with two slices of bacon and two pan fried English muffins and a cup of apple pie coffee and a bottle of cold water.Anthony stayed for several hours and visited with Mom,then he left to look for work and see about getting his car fixed,the neighbor came back with the tools so Mom went down cellar and put them away,then Anthony left and she cleaned up the dishes and pan and as she tried to mop the floor where everyone tracked through with their wet boots and shoes on,the floors all need a washing and cleaning big time but with this snow keeping on keeping on its useless to even try because Mom did that a few weeks ago and they stayed clean no more than two days at the most!So for now she'll just damp mop after everyone comes in and goes out.Its my dad's turn to be held over tonight so Mom isn't sure about what she will be doing for dinner if anything at all.If dad is staying then she won't be cooking anything.But if he's only home for a short period of time then she'll throw some leftover calzone at him and just refill his lunch cooler boxes to tide him over til he can come home again.Right now we are just so happy that Mom is home with us today.Mom is living in limbo again today,not knowing and not being able to plan anything.
Did I tell you that the other d

Woke up this morning to a dull,dark dismal day here again and after Mom cleaned and fed us she thought about going out to run some errands with Nana and pay some bills that had to be paid so as today was the only good day we'll be having for the rest of the week,she did go. But as she tried to get out of the end of the driveway she got stuck and it took several times to get out as the road is higher now than the driveway with all those ice slabs and she had to maneuver the car around the snow mountains and onto the road a certain way in order to not get stuck and then after she got free and was leaving her IPod stopped working so she had a boring quiet ride up to Nana's.Then when she got to Nana's driveway she got stuck again there.She had some tea and homemade waffles at Nana's house before they left. Then they went to Falmouth instead of Hyannis so Mom wouldn't have to keep going back and forth driving and they went to Comcast to pay Mom's bill there,then they went to Petco so Nana could get my picky cousins something different to eat as they can't go over the Bridge right now in all this snow and ice.Then they went to Dollar Tree and got several items there,then to Shaws(grocery store)where both Mom and Nana got some nice markdowns on cakes and already prepared chicken legs which Mom is making for dad for dinner tonight with real mashed potatoes and veggies,some deli turkey meat,among other items,then they stopped to get some lunch at the Chinese restaurant and the both got egg drop soup,with the dry noodles,and a chicken dish with veggies and rice and Mom brought us all back most of the rice and was it good and the noodles too!That made up for her taking off on us today!It was lightly snowing as Mom was coming home and when she got home she put all the groceries away and got dad's dinner in the oven,peeled the potatoes and got them in the boiling water to cook,then she came in to us and cleaned our cages and gave us all some rice which we all had seconds on,even Mario ate everything today and had two helpings of rice also!Our highs for the day were 29 but I don't think we ever saw that number as it was so frigid out in Falmouth and the lows will be 22.Right now its hanging in there at 27.Mom is so happy to be back in the warm house again. Now we'll have Mom all to ourselves tonight!Mom can't wait to have her visit with your sweet Momma and I can't wait to get the package you sent me!It really is so soothing to my painful feet!

Your dad was probably here with dads father. Some of the local boys got to stay around for a while. Had to make sure those who came in took care of 'their' mountains. hahaha We got moose, elk, deer, bear, mtn lions, fox, coyote and a whole lot of other things up there. Mom never saw the cats or bear but lots of markings of bear. Maybe mom can take us up there this year and we can squawk at the feathered ones up there.
Another lovely day here. Wish we had snow or rain or both! Snow on the mountain and rain down here. We're going to have a bad, bad drought this year. There's only about a foot of snow where there should be at least 6'. Not good. Wish you could send some of the white stuff here.
Better be checking out as many as we can before something happens to BC again. haha See ya later--Sophie

Your Valentine pic is lovely, but for the contest it needs a South American theme. The name of the Milonga this month is Love in the Rainforest. Can you put your pic into a rainforest background or something South American/Latin? Then I could accept it for the contest.

  rk!And we're not much better here,all our towns and villages are running out of salt and if the town wants more they will have to go to Chelsea(outskirts of Boston)to pick it up themselves!Who's gonna drive big dump trucks on these already slick roads a two or more hour trip away to get some salt?They will have to use sand which does nothing for traction,just makes your car slip more!It looks like my daddy won't be coming home tonight,he's still out there directing the men on what roads to cover and clean up.He's been out there since 6:00am and its now 9:30pm.Mom would love to hear from your sweet Mamma tomorrow night!My pretty loving fister deserves something nice from her frothers and fisters here!

Mom and I just couldn't believe that your awesome Momma went and got my medicine out to me this morning on such a bad day,Mom and I just can't thank her for going through all that trouble and doing that for us,bad weather and all!Please give her lots of my GCC hugs and kisses!Its the only thing that is keeping Mario and me from hurting so badly!And it keeps us eating well also!You had us laughing so hard when you were trying to get away from being sprayed with Feather In and then Charlie got it in the belly and when Baldrick got it right in the face that was way too funny,I can just picture Teal'c laughing his tailfeathers off and seeing both boys wet and as mad as wet hens on top of Charlies condo!That is too funny!
We woke up this morning to a snowy start of the day as my dad left for work the temperatures are at 32 degrees with our highs being 34 and the lows to be 31.Its been snowing steadily non stop since before 6:00am this morning.Its a heavy wet kind of snow and on top of the 2 inches we got yesterday,we have at least another 3.Mom is going to wait a little longer before she goes out there to start shoveling again.Hopefully that tree that fell last storm will still be standing so she won't have to deal with trying to get that back up again.Mom got a call from Anthony who wanted to come down and visit for a while but Mom didn't want him to even try coming down our road as it wasn't even plowed yet and all the roads around here are icy and slippery,there have been a lot of accidents on some of the roads in town.Shiloh called Mom and had wanted to do something with her today and Mom told her the same thing,to stay home and don't even think of going out.Mom just is going to try and do some more cleaning in the house and see what she can plan for dinner if dad will be coming home today at all as its his turn to be on again,he just got back yesterday from working an 11 hour day and is back at it again,not even getting 24 hours break in between.Other than that there's not much going on here today,just another quiet boring kind of a day!When Mom tried to get on BC she couldn't even log on or get to the home page.We had to wait til nearly mid afternoon to get back on to BC.What a pain in the tail feathers!
Mom just got back inside from trying to shovel out the driveway and she only got to do it partway and then decided to check on doing the deck as that was getting so high and the door wouldn't open to get outside,Mom tried making the pathway to the gate a little wider but that didn't work out as the mountains of snow are way too high and the gate wouldn't open so she had to work on getting the gate open and the path to the mailbox was all covered over again and Mom checked to see if the mail was there but there was no mail,Mom gave up and came inside.Boston is a disaster,the trains,trollies,buses and all other transportation is all being shut down as they can't keep up with the snow,so everyone there will have to find another way to get to wo

  Hi Cookie
This morning the phone rang at 5:00 am and my dad was off and running to work again.Oh well,we got a couple of hours in with him last night.After Mom got him off to work as it was really snowing hard out there and covered what we already had with about 2 more inches,she waited for a while to get us all up and cleaned and fed.We are finally getting warmer temperatures of 34 degrees,the high for today being 35 and the lows of 32.At least the icicles hanging off our roofs are starting to drip and some of this snow should be melting a little.Now the forecast is saying that we are going to get lots of rain here.My dad is worried about the three feet of snow that is on our roofs on the sun room and the tv room. That is a lot of weight for those roofs to be bearing up.
Mom stripped her bed and made about ten more sandwiches for my dad's lunch cooler boxes in order to keep up with things.She's going to try and run the washer later on when its much warmer in the cellar as its been so cold that the washer might spit out ice at her and then she can't do any laundry then.Other than Mom doing some house chores and cleaning up more clutter here its a boring day for us.At least Kallie got to fly around the house again as Mom opened the door to our room for him to come out as its warmer out in the dining room and tv room and Dixie got to sit in the acrylic cage and look out at the wild birds and the things that are going on outside in the yard and the street.
Oh now does it seem like you are getting all the love!Getting 3 peanuts from Mom and you then get one peanut from dad!And is Charlie in for a surprise getting a nice shower with the Feather In!The two of you can enjoy each others company while you both get sprayed!
Mom is trying to find a way to carry me around with her so that I won't fall,she's going to try and sew my blankie closed so that I won't fall out of that either when she carries me around with her!How awesome that Aunt Robin made that picture of Miranda and Sammie!Mom was happy to see that Mario actually ate some of his dinner he didn't eat the whole thing last night.Oh you just don't know how good it was for my Mom to be able to have her visit with your amazing wonderful Momma!It really made her day so much better and bearable!Its so good to know that she's feeling so much better and is coughing less,that coughing is such a pain and it seems like forever for it to go away!

  Hi Cookie!
I'm so glad you like the picture of us! It is easy to do when working with such a beautiful subject as yourself! hehehe! So, do you have snow or just cold? We are cold here and we live in the tropics! Mom finally got her socks out yesterday and even put on boots to go out to dinner - of course the restaurant has outside dining only and it was windy and even rained. She had turkey soup to keep warm!
Although it was a little chilly here, mom took us out on the porch this afternoon and we counted grackles and doves in practice for the Great Backyard Bird Count next weekend. Mom read a book and hung out with us. I eggspect tomorrow will be the same but we'll go out in the morning and get in lock down for the afternoon as they are going out to lunch.
Dreaming of you, my beautiful 'too!

Oh what a beautiful picture of you and Picabo!You both are such a sweet couple together!I just love it!
Today was a cold morning but we had little sunshine for a little while before the clouds rolled in and wiped the sun right outta the sky!My daddy took off to work again for another 12 hour shift but then he got to come home around 1:00pm this afternoon,he salted our driveway and then Mom made him some soup and crackers for lunch and got his lunch coolers boxes re stocked with more sandwiches and KCups and breakfast bars,pop tarts,cookies and chips and the coffee ready to go in the coffee maker.How wonderful for my Mom to hear your wonderful Mom's voice,she has really missed her visits with her and does she ever know about the craziness that she's having to deal with,Mom is having the same craziness here with my dad's schedule of 12 hour shifts and then like now when its snowing and he's home it may not be for long so she never knows until the last minute whats she has to do!Candida is taking it all out on my Mom because she can't dine with my dad and he's not there for her to snuggle with so she bites Mom,even though my dad comes in to talk to all of us and try to eggsplain why he can't stay and snuggle or dine with her.Oh is Doo such a bad boy trying to steal that Twix mini from the candy dish!I'll bet that big beady Too stare down with your sweet Momma was just too funny for words!I can just see it now!I think you are so sweet doing that Charlie Chaplin impersonation holding that purple pellet in your beak!You do have the most awesome eggspressions!We too have all missed our birdie spas because its just been too doggone cold and even though our room is the warmest room in the house Mom still doesn't want to chance it with us getting a chill!

This morning was a freezing cold morning with the temperatures of a high of 21 and a low of 15 degrees.Its 18 degrees right now.Mom had a hard time moving this morning and collected the trash and then cleaned our cages and fed us our warm pastene/egg/veggie mix and then swept and vacuumed our room.Mom took off to Nana's house and had a hard time getting into her driveway as it was all ice and bumpy and Mom got stuck in it once already trying to get back out.Mom loaded Nana's trash and recyclables in Mom's car as they couldn't get Nana's car out because of the big hard snow mountain that was in front of her garage door.There was so much trash between the two of them and recyclables that Mom's trunk and backseat was full.Mom got to get into the dump without having a dump sticker as the guy at the gatehouse knows Mom and Nana.Mom froze running the recycs around and then she took care of dumping the trash,and from there they went to Roche Brothers grocery and got some good buys Lean Cuisine dinners for $1.59 and Cool Whip for $1.00 to make the Jello recipe with that Mom likes,and half gallon of milk for $1.49,Mom got four of those and shredded cheese to make lasagna with and some pizza slices for Saturday night dinner along with several other things that were on sale.Then from there they went to Stop&Shop where they went in for only strawberries and came out with more tv dinners,rice pudding,yukon potatoes and several other things,including bacon to make BLT's with and a Calzone on a BOGO.Then when they went back to Nana's house skin bro met them there and took them out for National Frozen Yogurt Day.Mom got a mixture of the peanut butter yogurt,a kind of mocha yogurt and something else.It was so good and it was so crowded in there with no place to sit!Then they went back to Nana's house as it was snowing and getting really heavy enough to cover the roads again.They had some tea and a snack and after that both Mom and skin bro left to go home.We were waiting for Mom to get home as our dad is working another 12 hour day and won't be home til after 7:00pm and there would be no one home to give us our snack and to talk to us or let Kallie out.We were so happy to see Mom.We'll have Mom all to ourselves tomorrow and hopefully on Sunday also.
Does Mom know what that's all about with our dad's 12 hour work schedule its just getting too crazy with Mom having to get dad's dinner around 8pm and she up doing dishes and cleaning the kitchen and getting my dad's lunches made til after 10:00pm.We never see our dad anymore because all he does is go to work,come home,eat and go to bed and he does it all again the next day,Candida is taking it all out on Mom as she can't dine with dad even though he does come in and see us and talk to us!Oh does Baldrick sound like Kallie,letting everyone out of their cages to destroy the room!It sure seems like we both have the same problems with our dad and mom here!Long hours at work and no time at all for us!Mom will wait for

How are you? We are all still pretty sad around here since my frothed crossed the bridge. I know he's with my old friend Alfie though and she will probably get him into trouble! hehehe! She and Jenny Lynn would have been greyt friends.
We are having a bit of a cold spell here with some rain and such but nothing like you must be having up north. I hope you and your flock and parronts are staying inside and warm!

It was a dark dreary morning here and it was so bitter cold out.Mom was in the middle of getting us all cleaned up and fed when she noticed Anthony's car in the driveway so she opened the garage door to let him come inside,our highs for the day here are 32 but we never even saw that right now its 14 and our lows for the night will be 4.The wind is starting to pick up out there also. Anthony came in and Mom made him a french toast breakfast with peach cobbler coffee and he ate all four slices she made for him,it was 9:00am and Mom had just barely got started with her house chores.He stayed and visited with Mom til well after 12:30pm and then he left to go job hunting.Mom then went to write out her bills and nearly slipped and fell on the icy pathway to put it in the mail box and to feed the CawCaws some bread Nana sent home for them,she had to throw it on top of the mountain of snow that was as high as the mail box.It started snowing out but so far it didn't amount to much.On the whole it was another uneventful day here and Mom is hoping to be able to go out to the dump tomorrow as the trash is really starting to collect.Anthony took a big bag of it with him for Mom and he took a big bag for Nana the other day and that helps a little.Then dad called my Mom and told her he's working another 12 hour day today and he won't be home til after seven tonight.Its going to be another crazy day around here with planning dinner and trying to get things done.I'm only so glad that I'm in a warm house!
Mom is getting so tired of these long 12 hour days and dad is getting so tired of not having a life and can't wait til he retires.And now another storm heading this way on Saturday through Tuesday night so there goes getting to see my daddy til who knows when,Candida is taking it all out on Mom because she can't be with dad tonight for dinner or to snuggle tonight with him!I sure don't blame you for not wanting your feetsies cut at all!Mom was trying to push my daddy fast through their late dinner and into the shower so she could be down in time for your sweet Momma's call.Mom took the phone with her in the bathroom just to make sure she didn't miss her call!Mom will be home by dark at least tomorrow,she's gotta get her and Nana to the dump its awful to not be able to get to the dump for two weeks!
Dads got another 12 hour day tomorrow and won't be home again til after 7:00pm again and there goes another late night dinner and a tired daddy and no time for Candida!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and vote #1025 for you!Loving you always and forever,my sweet fister!Love,Dixie

  Hi Cookie
Sophie puts some peanut butter cookies on the table as they sit and have tea and cookies.
We live smack in the center of the state. Yup make an X and there we are. Dad's favorite park was Bryce which is on Hwy 89. He really liked it a lot. That was before they moved to Moab that is. But from what mom says even then he loved Bryce. Mom preferred Zion.
I wasn't with them when they lived in Moab, but sure sounds like a warm place to live in summer. Skin sis says it's been cool but mostly a normalish winter. good thing mom understands that cause I think it's a code of some sort. Mom was hoping to go there this week to help them celebrate their anniversary but with pneumonia she doesn't think it would go over well.
It's been way to mild a winter here. Only one big storm and that was in Dec. Nothing since. It makes it nice to see all the feathered cousins, but just not normal at all.
I need to go and make sure I stand on mom's chest as she's trying to use the computer. She can't see much screen if I'm there and I can move my head as well as she can trying to look around me. hahaha. Squawk later.

  Hi Cookie
Its illegal for anyone to drive around here with snow on the roof of their cars if they are caught they'll get fined as several bad accidents have come out of that already,sheets of ice going through windshields and people dodging snow and getting blinded on the expressways because chunks of snow blocked the visions of cars behind them causing them to swerve into other cars and crashing up!I so hope that your sweet Momma's pc mouse is working okay by tomorrow.Mom has a track ball and she loves it.Mom is gonna try and finish what she can with our blogs and be with my daddy as we may not be seeing him until next week or more,another marathon storm coming here,Saturday through Tuesday,which makes mom really insane!She can't wait to have her visit with your sweet Momma tomorrow so she can have a reason to smile again!Love, and lots of warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses,Love Dixie

  Hi Cookie
This morning was bright and sunny and the highs for the day were 37 and the lows are to be 35 but it sure feels so much colder.Mom had got my Dad's coffee ready in his thermos,his lunch cooler boxes packed and he was even ready to go to work this morning and then he was so tired and not feeling so good that he just sat on the couch thinking for what seemed like an eternity.He finally decided that he needed some time off as he's been going non stop with these 12 hour days and more seven days a week for the last two weeks so he got undressed after calling in to work and went back to bed and Mom had to put all the things she packed for him away and put his instant breakfast back in the fridge.Mom quicky got us up a few hours later and fed us and cleaned our cages and got ready to leave to run errands with Nana and skin sis.Skin sis along with Nana picked Mom up and they took off to the bank first and then they went into Falmouth and went to Shaw's where Mom and skin sis paid their NStar bills and then did some grocery shopping and Mom got some bags of salad that were on sale for $.099 and she got hot dogs that were on sale for the same price also and some other items as did Nana.Then they went to WalMart and looked around and didn't find anything there and from there they went to PetCo and the Dollar Tree where they got a few items and from there they went to Comcast so Nana could pay her cable bill and then they went to Walgreen's where both Mom and Nana got three dozen eggs each.Then from there they went back to Nana's and Mom and Nana had some coffee and a few cookies before skin sis drove Mom home as it was well after 5:00pm and when she got home she had a sink full of dishes from dad's lunch and had to clean that up and then put everything away that she bought today,then she came in to us and cleaned us up for the night and made dad something for dinner and after she got through cleaning the dishes up from dad's dinner it was well past 7:00pm and we were all yelling as we wanted our time to snuggle with Mom.Now Mom is getting to sit down and help us get our visits in and maybe she can relax with us and snuggle with dad as he wants Mom and us to snuggle with him so Mom is going to try and get all our visits in before dad comes in to be with us as tomorrow night we may not be able to see him for a long time again because of the snow that's coming!Oh does Mom know what that's like having to sit in long lines just waiting on them to clear up an accident as that's just what happened to us this afternoon and it made us all late.And there was no where to go on the one lane up and the one lane back roads here!Mom and all of us are so praying that your sweet Momma finds out what's going on that makes her feel so sick all this time.Oh has my Mom missed her visits with your awesome Momma and can't wait to have her visit with her tomorrow.It sure will bring some sunshine into such a depressing snow covered day!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending yo

Sophie brings some cookies with the seahawk logo.Yeah, I know the game's over but we still love our seahawks. Mom still likes the LA Dodgers in baseball too. She chose them when she first married dad and just cause they had some bad years...many bad years...she still is for them. Why only like a team if they're good. They need fans in bad times too. It makes em work harder.
Oh how well I understand how hard it is when dad is sick. I was able to be on dad nearly all the time he was sick, but it wasn't the same. Then when he died it was so awful. Mom couldn't give me the attention I so needed so off came feathers. This year is a bit different though. my feather plucking is from some awful guys coming into our house when mom was gone. Yep, she went to the mail and they came in like they owned the place. First she knew they were here is by a slight cig smell and a butt at the bottom of my cage!! She doesn't go anywhere without locking our door now. She doesn't go next door, the mail or even to the trash. Pretty scary when it used to be mostly safe here. We know we won't be able to go outside this summer either with those people living here. They'd sell us for drugs!! Yes we do know who it is but the police won't take the word of a bird! Well, that's over with, other than my plucking.
With mom, some of it seems to be better where some isn't improving at all. Her chest is not hurting now, but she still coughs terrible. Still several days before her meds are gone so will see what they bring.
We haven't had any snow or rain here at all. Kinda heartbreaking too because we need it so badly. Wish there wasn't such weird weather everywhere but guess it can't be completely helped.
Sorry about my ranting on. But hoping yours and mine feathers start growing back soon. Bye for now.

  join him for dinner anymore as he has to eat at 4:00 right when he gets in the door so he can shower and get to bed to get up again for 2am!She's been taking it out on Mom by biting her on the lip and face,so Mom has to put her in time out in her cage which she whines very loudly about!Mom feels like she's running a B&B here!

  Hi Cookie
Woke up to a dark dismal,dreary nighttime dark day with it snowing pretty good here at 2:00am this morning and then after we accumulated 4-5 inches of snow it turned to rain and now everything is such a slushy mess outside and the streets are even worse than before.Our temperatures are 36 degrees for the highs and the lows will be 11 and as soon as the temperatures drop everything will freeze and it will be so treacherous out there driving and on the roads!They are sending my dad home at his regular time and he's gotta to back to work again at three am tomorrow morning.Mom got us all fed and cleaned this morning and then scrubbed both bathrooms and did some vacuuming as she couldn't do any of it yesterday and then she made more PB&J sandwiches for my dad for work tomorrow.It was a very boring day for us here and Anthony was going to come over and visit Mom and us for a while but Mom told him to go home as she was so afraid that he would get stuck in the slushy icy roads here,our development is done so poorly.Its still raining and the wind is picking up now!As soon as my dad gets home Mom will have dinner ready for him so he can eat and go to bed.Its already starting to snow here again on top of the rain and Mom went out to the deck to shovel off some of the slush that would turn to ice so she could get down off the deck to the pathway to get the mail but already some of the areas on the deck and stairs have frozen over.The plows that were slushing Nana's street pulled her mailbox up from the ground and broke the flag on it and left the door wide open with the mail still in it in the mountain of snow and no one even came by to tell her they did it!Her mail box always takes the hit and this is about the fourth mail box she's had so far!
We are so relieved to know that your awesome Momma got to work and home safely,we all worry about her here driving on those roads in this icy weather!Its so good to know that she's feeling better and we pray that your daddy feels better soon also!It sure sounds like a fun time you all had watching the Superbowl last night!Getting snacks to share and everything and that silly Petey grabbing CUBird's carrot like that and eating it!Oh did Miranda have a good feast with that hot wing and baby carrot!Oh don't we all just love to make our Mom's eggcercise with dropping stuff on the floor and pooping everywhere!Kallie and Mario made such a mess with poop inside their cages that kept Mom's head inside them for hours it seemed,always pooping on the tracks and the sides which are hard to get to!Josh is so crafty thinking that he can snatch your sweet Momma's glasses right offa her face like that!Mom is so happy that we have our power back and she's not so happy with all this freezing up and the rain and the snow on top of it all!We hardly ever get to see my dad anymore,he does come in from work when he does get to come home and pokes his head in our room and talks to each one of us,Candida is in a snit because she can't

  Hi Cookie
Sophie jumps on the perch next to the little girl. Now tell me what happened to upset you? The feather plucking I well understand, I do it all the time to make a point, but pulling the flight feathers? No that is just to much. you must be very upset. I have to make sure I keep my flights because I have to chase Ipo and Oatie off mom. Doesn't matter that they were hers before dad died, she's mine now. She does make me share, but if I'm out, they get chased around the house. Can you believe that she will put ME in my cage instead of them when I chase them away? yeah, go figure.
*she clears her throat* Sorry, let's get back to you. I know you want Dad's attention, I always did, but that's not the way to get it....always. I always rang my bells as loud and long as it took..if that didn't work I'd use my outside voice. Since dad's been gone, using my outside voice only gets me tossed into time out. Go figure. I need another dad to train. Well, you TRY not to get so upset and no more pulling so many feathers! Mom says that after she's over this cough she wants me to leave my feathers alone too. I'll think about it. hehehe. Squawk later.
