My former mom, a vet tech wanted mom to take me over a year ago because she felt bad nobody had time for me anymore and the cats in the house were starting to stalk me. Couldn't have been soon enough! (We had to wear dad down and get him when he least expected it after his surgery!).

Hi! My name is Cookie-Justice For Ozzi-thank you for BOTD 7/31/14

I am a Cockatoo from Newton, NJ.

Kookie Bird, Nurse Cookie

9 years old   F

Cockatoo

Bananas, peanuts, chicken, pasta, just about anything these guys are eating! And CORN!

I like to hang out with dad. I fell in love with him the first night I cam home. He just had footie surgery, so I perched on his ankle to be his "footie nurse".

Now I love the camera! Say, cashews! My current pet peeve is that little brat chihuahua Petey who thinks he can keep me away from dad. He barks and chases me, but I always squawk and chase him away, finding my dad!

Dad just cuddles and snuggles with me. I sit with him in the office for hours while he works. Dad never forgets to give me a peanut when he brings me back to my roost cage.

I like to stash food in my plumage. I also like to run my beak through the food dish and "spread the wealth around"..

How sweet I am!.

  Hi Cookie
This morning Mom rushed off to find out what was going on with skin sis in the hospital and she drove to Nana's house and Mom called skin sis from there and she was waiting to get her breakfast to see if she would keep it down.They had her on a liquid diet all night and wouldn't release her until she could handle eating solid foods,so while Mom waited for her to have lunch,she and Nana went into Hyannis to return the large tray Mom bought last week to hold the A/C so my dad could store it in the closet,and Mom was returning it because it was too big and wouldn't fit in the closet.After Mom returned the tray at Home Depot,they went to the Mall to get some of that rock sugar at Teavana so Nana could use it in her tea,then they went to Mahoney's a garden shop to get some soil for Nana to plant some of her plants for indoors but they only had big bags of soil so then they went to Falmouth to Falmouth Pet so Nana could get some pellets for my cousins but they didn't have anything that they'd like so then they went to the Dollar Tree,Christmas Tree Shop and then PetCo and Nana bought my cousins some Zupreem Nut Blend there and hope that they would eat that as they are becoming more and more picky about their pellets!Skin bro had called Mom and told her he was at WalMart and he came and met Mom and Nana at the Dollar Tree which was a minute away so then they all went back to WalMart to grab something to eat at SubWay as it was 3:30 and none of them had had any lunch,then skin sis texted skin bro and wanted to know where they were as she was getting released from the hospital and skin bro offered to come and pick her up but she had told him that she had a ride already and was going home,so Mom,Nana and skin bro all went back to Nana's house for some coffee and dessert.Then by the time Mom left and got home it was nearly 6:00pm and then she had to get dinner for my dad and clean our cages and put what she got away.The highs here were 67 and the lows will be 53,it was a nice afternoon with bright sunshine that was almost hot at one point after a cold morning!
If its not one thing that's gonna take up all the money its another thing!That oil is so eggspensive too,Mom is glad that we have an all electric house but wishes she could burn the coal stove again even though it was alot of work twice a day to clean it and refill it!Mom had our chimney fixed a few years back as the chimney sweep had found that we had a chimney fire so before Mom could burn the stove anymore she had to get the insurance company to check it out and then call the chimney sweep back to fix the lining in the chimney so now its all lined with aluminum or something like that!At least Mom will be home with us all day tomorrow!
Wishing you a great day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses,Loving you always and forever,Love,Dixie

Do I know what you mean about getting our parronts out the door in time!My Mom is constantly late these days getting out the door to get her day started and by the time she gets to where she's going the day is half gone already!So then she has to come home even later at the end of the day!That sure sounds like a huge condo that Josh has now,if its big enough for him to spread his wings out wide then I can just see how much real estate that condo covers in a room!It certainly wouldn't fit in our room,it would be the whole room in itself!Hahahaha!How sad that your Mom can't be at Parrot Palooza and we're not even sure my Mom and Nana will be able to go either!Mom still has to check out the prices for the hotel rooms but even before that find someone who will be able to stay with us when and if they get to go!Mom doesn't trust just anyone with us especially me as I must have my meds each day!My Mom was thinking on the same lines as yours about the coal stove here,its so old and Mom can't shake the shaker thing down anymore as its rusted and frozen in time.Parts of the stove inside have worn away or rusted away and that's going to cost something to replace that and we need it for back up heat in case ours goes out like it did a few years back when we had no heat for a week and it was the coldest week of the year!These eggspenses never seem to want to quit or leave our parronts alone!My Mom was checking out those new pellet stoves,(no,not the kind you put our pellets in)they have in the stores but they run on electricity so what good are they then?If the power goes out then they can't heat the house!You are so right we definitely don't want any fires in our homes!Mom will look forward to your sweet Mom to call her tomorrow then,she will get her butt home on time!

Oh your sweet Momma sure was busy the whole weekend like my Momma was!Please give that wonderful hardworking Momma of yours a big hug from Nana for thinking of making those ginger root capsules for her,oh would that be ever so wonderful for her to not have to be in so much pain like that!How wonderful to have Angel stay with you for the whole week!Oh is he gonna be so spoiled,just like Candida is here!Oh My!He's even getting his very own room there too?Now I must say that's some hotel service he's getting,a penthouse view too?Now what birdie doesn't have his own radio,we even stole the XM radio from our daddy so we are guaranteed of constant good music all day long!We got Mom's old boom box in our room so good sound and everything for us!Moggie is just so funny with his flying around everyone's heads and then landing with a four pointer on the champagne tin in his airport!Now that sounds like a lot of work just to clean Josh's old cage.Now that was really incredible of Josh to step right up on your sweet daddy's hand without even a nip from him!
Yesterday morning was a bright sunny morning but freezing cold and the temperatures were in the low 50's.Mom put the heat box on again to warm up the TV room at least so it would be warm for her later on. Mom spent the morning cleaning our cages and play gyms and the acrylic cage and the platform perch in it and then dad vacuumed the rug by the front door for Mom and the whole pantry,then he vacuumed the whole garage,walls and ceiling from all the cobwebs,bugs,etc that was stuck to the walls etc.Then he went upstairs to the spare bedroom that Mom and he were working on Saturday and vacuumed the plush area rug up there that didn't come out good when Mom tried to vacuum it with her vacuum!Now it really looks nice in that room and Mom will be able to start fixing it up the way she'd like it to be.Then skin bro came down and stayed awhile and he went in to see us and Kallie dive bombed him and tried to attack him,Mom told him to take off his baseball hat as Kallie doesn't like hats or glasses,so he did and Kallie went right after him again and this time really bit into his neck,so now he has two big welts that hurt there!Mom just couldn't believe Kallie,he had never been like this before,but skin bro had been handling our cousin Trixie II and possibly could smell her on him and was very jealous!Mom had to cage Kallie the whole time skin bro was here,that is so unacceptable behavior and it not allowed here!Then skin sis showed up and Mom had dad start up the BBQ and Mom pulled out apple spice chicken sausages,jalapeño sausages,hamburgers,hot dogs,and then she was grilling them and we couldn't come outside and join them because it was way too cold out,they had corn on the cob too!Mom saved some for us for later.Then Mom served carrot cake from Market Basket for dessert,skin sis took home a goodie bag and she went home and Mom cleaned up the kitchen and then we all got a snack before she made us some fresh

Mom got us all fed and cleaned this morning and then skin sis picked her up and they took off to zumba class,Mom did alright eggcept by the middle of the class her sore toe began to hurt but she made it through the whole class anyway.Then they went and picked up Nana and headed for Hyannis and Home Depot where Mom bought a plastic thing that protects the floors for the a/c that my dad is going to take out of the window!Its really to put a washer on but Mom figured that would work for the a/c so that all the water that may leak out of it won't get on the hardwood floors in the closet in the spare bedroom.Dad doesn't want to lug that thing down two flights of stairs anymore its getting way too heavy for him to do that anymore so Mom said he could store it in the spare bedroom across the hall closet.Then they all went to Shaws and Mom and Nana got some ground hamburger meat for a good price and a few other things,then they went to the dollar store where Mom,Nana and skin sis got some things and then they went and dropped off Mom's things at our house and continued onto Mashpee and looked in True Value but Nana didn't find what she wanted so they continued to go to Nana's house and drop her things off and as they were coming up her street there were about 25 turkeys on both sides of the road walking towards Nana's house,skin sis had to park her car across the street as skin bro's big Monster truck was in the driveway and as they got out of the car the turkeys were all over Nana's yard and the neighbor next door to Nana's.They were all over Nana's bird feeder,in her garden all over the neighbors yard,up by the front door there,laying all over the lawn in the sunshine,climbing up the hill to their backyard, As Nana ran into the house a squirrel ran into her garage,she was frantic to get the thing out of there and then the turkeys proceeded to tear up her garden again,it was like complete mayhem! Mom and skin sis both took pictures of the turkeys and Mom will try to post them on our galleries later on.Then Mom,skin sis and Nana went to grab a bite to eat as soon as the turkeys left Nana's yard,they were crossing all over the road and the cars coming and going had to stop and wait for them to decide where they were going before they could continue on.They went to CVS and then came home to Nana's and had some coffee and then skin sis took Mom home where she made dad a tv dinner and gave us a quick cleaning.
It looked like it was going to rain or something today as there were dark clouds everywhere before the sun came out later in the day.It barely made 70 today and the lows are supposed to be 61 for tonight!

There is nothing to forgive,we are just so happy that your sweet Momma is sending it out to us!We can't believe that your sweet daddy's card was hacked in that Home Depot scandal thing,we were all watching that on the news last night,how awful,what is wrong with these people who keep hacking into innocent hard working peoples credit cards.How wonderful to have your sweet parronts come home with all those wood scraps for you to have toys made from them!That is so sad that the independent pet store is closing,those are the ones that give you the best service and will order things for you that you can't get in any of the other pet stores!How awful to go into a pet store and have a scary boxer dog come chasing after you and the owner not doing anything about it!Poor Elvis must've been freaking out!Its so good your sweet Momma was fast and got outta there with Elvis safely!Mom just can't wait for her visit with your sweet Momma tomorrow night!And I just can't wait to hear you SQUAWK every now and then,I would sure love to hear your awesome Too voice!
Today is a dark cloudy day here and the temperatures barely made it to 70.There's no sunshine and Mom will not be taking us all outside for a shower as its way too cold now for that.As each day passes it looks more and more like the fall and its so sad to see because that means no more deck time and watching the wildlife come and go,no more sitting in the sunshine and my dad is already talking about taking the A/C's out and putting the glass back in the screen door.It also means the end of BBQing and getting good grilled food and corn on the cob to eat!How very sad,that mostly it means bringing with it the cold,snow and the long winter of being kept inside!
Mom is busy cleaning the house again and getting the rest of it done before she's off and running again tomorrow with skin sis and Nana,Mom will try going to Zumba tomorrow morning and hopefully she'll be able to put her sneakers on without squeezing her sore toe and side of her foot!

  Room for Mom and that created another mess,all the stuff on top of it was all over the dining room floor,dining table,bench etc.Dad helped skin bro get it into his truck and he took off with that,then Mom and skin sis went out to the veggie garden and they both dug up Mom's tomato plants and put them in pots so they could be on the deck before the weather turned cold,there are tomatoes on them still coming.Then Mom got us all out on the deck for some sun and soaking showers and as skin sis stayed and watched us,Mom went inside and tried to clean up the mess that was left from the closet.There were lots of wire hangers which skin sis took with her and other kinds of hangers which Mom brought upstairs to the closet.Then Mom took most of the other stuff that was left and put it in the spare room off the Mud Room for the time being,then she made dad some sandwiches for his lunch on Monday and got the coffee ready and then she and skin sis went out back to take the laundry in,but it was mostly still wet so Mom put it all on hangers and now has it hanging all over the place upstairs waiting to dry!The sun sure went down fast so we never got to go back outside when Mom was done.Skin sis finally took all her things and my three fiblings with her and went back home.At least we got to enjoy the sunshine and the outdoors for a little while yesterday!Our temperatures were 71 degrees here Sunday which was really pleasant.We had some down pouring rain Saturday night but Mom never heard it as she had the a/c on it was so humid and hot!Today Mom got us all out today around 3pm and we weren't out for an hour when the weak sunshine disappeared and it got really cold,so no showers and not baking in the sunshine.We had a freezing cold night and now its going back to freezing again its already down to 68 degrees here!And getting dark too!

It sure looks like your flock is pretty popular these days and I wonder what happened to our flock and yours being BOTD! one right after the other?LOL! Oh those thank you notes sure can take some time and I know what that's like being made to wait in line to get your visits in!Oh Cookie you had me laughing sooo hard,I can just see your sweet Mom pooping a brick in her pants while she watched you sitting out with your daddy and just a wreck that something wouldn't scare you so they would be chasing you down the street like Kallie did to my Mom!Now didn't your sweet daddy just love going into his pocket and sticking his hand in some mighty Too Poop?Now that one I rolled all over the floor on!What a greyt deposit place you picked!And then to nip his ear and give him a little tongue to show off to your sweet Momma how much better at it you are than she is?Now that one is priceless!Oh you must share everything off your daddy's plate and it looks like tonight I won't get to do that because its gotten really cold here!Mom had us all out around 3pm and the sun was out but really weak,then it disappeared and it really got cold!We were barely out there an hour and she dragged us all back inside!Josh sure likes the strangest things that we wouldn't eat!That would be soo sad if Blue's former Mom came and took him back after all this time had passed by.I would think it would be traumatizing for him to have her back in his life again after having the good life with your sweet Parronts and flock!Things would never be the same for him again once he left the security of your loving home and lifestyle!That sure is a strange thing with Blue's cage and why his former Mom won't hand it over to him!Our daddy's can be so stubborn at times though and if it wasn't for our Mom's watching over us and them life may be a disaster for us all!I don't blame your sweet Mom for getting him a log splitter to save on anymore emergencies!Mom will look for the package in the mail after tomorrow then,and Mom can't wait til Wednesday night for her visit with your sweet Momma!Mom ran around the house today and got some stuff done and then vacuumed the whole house as she wasn't able to do that all weekend with everything that was going on!
Mom had another long busy day yesterday and she thought she would have an easy lay back Sunday!Skin sis wound up staying overnight Saturday night and we had our three fiblings with us too!Mom got up in the morning and got us all fed and cleaned up and then Nana and skin bro came down and the whole family went to IHOP for breakfast,skin sis was taking Mom and Nana and dad out,Mom and dad for their anniversary,Nana for GrandParents day.They had a long wait before they could get in at IHOP but they finally did and after they ate they came back here where Mom and skin sis put in two loads of laundry and got it all hung outside,Nana and skin bro left to go home and then skin bro came back an hour later to come and take the metal closet that was in the Mud

Mom will have to tell Nana to pick up some of that coconut oil!Mom has seen alot of things lately about coconut oil!Now that's really interesting to make toothpaste from the coconut oil!It certainly must be better than the stuff you buy in the stores and must work better too!That is incredible,how our daddies do think alike and like the same things too besides looking like they are twins and real brothers!How awful that Blue's former Mom won't give over his cage to your sweet Momma!What is she keeping it for?Does she have another fid in it or planning on getting another fid for it?It was Blue's so why not let him have it?That new cage sounds so spacious and very roomy for Blue but it sounds like your Cage Owners Association will have to make sure it will be a perfect fit in your available space!Pretty soon your room will be like ours,small and cramped!LOL!
Its a strange day here,dark,cloudy,very humid and sticky,YUCK,and then the sun is now just starting to peek out,we're supposed to get rain here by three this afternoon and the wind is blowing the wind chimes and the curtains way out in the house and whipping the trees around!Please give that little Angel a big wing hug from all of us here and a much bigger hug to him from Candida!And Mom sends Aunt Jeanne greetings and a big hug too!Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for my sweet fister,Loving you always and forever,Dixie

It was a bright sunny morning here today and the temperature was 82 degrees!Mom packed all the trash in the car and went to Nana's with me(Dixie)!Nana and Mom went to the dump and then to the brush pile to empty some of the yard branches and stuff that Nana cleared from her yard,then they went to Falmouth so they both could pay their cable bills and then to the Pet Store so Nana could find something for my picky cousins to eat in pellets,but they didn't have the ones she was looking for and so they left and went to Shaw's and that was only so Mom could pay the NStar bill!Mom said she wasn't going to any grocery stores but she paid her bill and then she went and bought several things anyway,like toilet paper,fresh broccoli,frozen pizzas,ice cream,fresh bruschetta and strawberries among some other things! When Mom and Nana finally got done with their errands,they came home and had lunch around 3:30pm and Nana made them a salad with lots of fruit and tuna with scala bread and apple pie,so by the time Mom got home and got her things and the groceries unpacked she was too tired to go out and too full to eat anything big for their anniversary so dad had ordered them both a Hawaiian pizza and they took us all out on the deck and we all ate there and we got to join them!Mom enjoyed being on the deck and not having to get all dressed up and having to wear shoes!
Nana sooo appreciates everything your sweet mamma is doing to help her,so does my Mom,its just so frustrating for her and sometimes that coughing just wears her down and she's afraid to go anywhere coughing like that because people will think she's got some rampant disease or something and will stay away from her!Mom is working on Dad to drive her up there but he says the cars are too old and may break down in New York and he doesn't like New York!Mom's car needs a timing belt and it could go at any time as its already at 60,000 miles!Mom isn't giving up at all!
Josh is so funny with that dialogue with your wonderful Momma!You had me laughing so hard with that one!

Oh do you look sooo sweet,I just love your new picture,I told Mom I wanted that picture of you up there!What a pretty girl you are!Oh did our Mom's ever have such a good time visiting with each other!It sure made my Mom's whole day!Those katydids sure sound interesting!We got to listen to the chickadees and the sparrows fighting over the food that dad just filled in the bird feeders last night and watch the blue jays splash all the water out of the bird bath in one flat moment!Mom and I just can't tell you how much we appreciate all of your sweet wonderful Momma's hard work and knowledge of helping Nana!She gets so frustrated with all the coughing and choking she is constantly saying that she's lived too long and Mom just hates it when she says that!Ohhh!eggs and toast and bacon?You just gotta get some of that!I kept stealing some off my dad's plate the other night while Candida kept whining from the cage,with all this nice weather,Mom won't stay in the house and has dinner out on the deck!So this is where I get my turn to share my dad's dinner without Candi pulling on my leg or my tail!Oh does Josh sure know how to get his way around things also with being so sweet and even asking for some!Candi is such a brat now and since she turned two won't sleep in her basket anymore,she insists she's going to sleep with Mom and me under MY blanket!Gimme a Break already!

Today was another bright sunny day here and very warm in the 80's.Mom took off early and picked Nana up and they went to Market Basket to see how things were going there.The shelves were still being stocked as they were looking around and Mom and Nana got lots of good buys on cakes and Mom got some pepperjack cheese and frozen veggies at a good price,among other things.Then Nana and Mom drove back to our house and dropped all Mom's things off so they wouldn't melt in the heat even though she had everything in a cooler bag with 2 big ice packs,dropped everything off and took off to go drop Nana's things off and then they went to Walgreen's to get some things and then to Roche Brothers to get some corn on the cob that was on sale for ten cents an ear,then they stopped back at Nana's around three o'clock or so to grab some lunch before heading off to Falmouth to get some things there!Then they drove back to Nana's and Mom got some things that fell in Nana's laundry room that kept the accordian doors from closing over the washer and dryer with her grab it thing.By the time that was all done with,it was 5:00pm and Mom headed home to put everything else away that she had gotten and made dinner for my dad,eggs,cheese and bacon omelet with some pan fried cinnamon swirl toast.As that was cooking Mom took us all outside in our deck cages as dad was out there waiting.We got to watch all the wild birds coming and going.By the time Mom got done with dinner it was close to 8:00pm.Mom is going to be home with us tomorrow and we are hoping to get outside in the sunshine then!
My Mom can't wait to have her visit with your sweet wonderful Mom tonight!Her visits with your wonderful Mom are the highlight of her week!

After the rain and lightening and thunder last night we woke up to a nice warm sunny day here and Mom was ready to spend the day at home,cleaning our cages and getting some of the housework done and then taking us out on the deck for some sunshine and a soaking shower,but skin bro called her right after she had got done with cleaning our cages and feeding us and getting dad his breakfast.He wanted to take Mom and Nana out to Longhorn restaurant for lunch today and so all of Mom's plans got changed.Skin bro was down here within an hour and Mom rushed to get us all set for the day and dad some lunch and off they went!When they got to Nana's skin sis was already there and so it was the four of them going out for the day,they stopped at some of the stores after they had lunch.Skin sis had a coupon for a free Birthday dessert and she ordered the chocolate stampede cake and that was sooo good,it comes with whipped cream and Ice cream and was it huge~the four of them could barely finish it!The all had to waddle over to LL Bean and Skin sis got some new sun glasses there and then they went to Target and Mom and Nana picked up some things along with skin sis,the traffic going up was really bad as it was mass exodus to get over the Bridge for all the tourists to go home,skin bro had to drive over the Bridge to get to Wareham which was where the restaurant was and the shopping center.There were people with kayak's and bicycles on their cars and inside their cars along with all their luggage going home!Mom didn't get home til after 5:30pm and then she had to get dad some dinner and us all cleaned up again for the night!It was really hot over the Bridge,94 and it was good to get back over here again,we were in the 80's here.Mom took us all out on the deck to join my dad for dinner and they sat there til well after 7:00pm and we all went inside as it was starting to get dark.Now Mom is trying to catch us up with our visits and hopefully she won't nod off on us!

It was a drab dull kind of a day here very cloudy and no sunshine at all and looking like it was going to rain any minute.The temperature was 75 with winds blowing and it was kind of humid too.Both skin sibs couldn't wait to come over for the BBQ and wanted to make sure they didn't miss it,so skin bro came right on time as Mom had started putting the food on the grill and skin sis came even earlier.Mom got us all outside to join in the BBQ and we got a taste of some chicken burger and a little hamburger.Mom put hamburgers,hot dogs,chipotle chicken sausages and chicken breasts on the grill!Mom will have the chicken breasts for tomorrow nights dinner so she doesn't have to do anything but heat them up and throw in some veggies and the wild rice mixture she made.Then Mom served the pumpkin squares she made last night with whipped cream for dessert.We all sat out in the front yard watching all the wild birds coming and going and splashing in the bird bath!The hummingbird came around and the only one to see it was skin bro.Mom spent the morning trying to deep clean our cages and vacuuming the floors before everyone came over.We are so happy that Mom will be home all day with us tomorrow and won't have to leave the house for anything!It sounds like you had the same kind of day we had to start with,lock down while the Parronts went to Church and then when they came home we had to wait even longer til Mom cleaned all our cages and got the BBQ ready,the meats she was going to grill,dad got the BBQ ready to light off.That luau sure sounds awesome,and how could your sweet daddy play horseshoes in a tournament and then come home to you too tired to cuddle and give scritches?That just wasn't right or fair!We get both parronts home tomorrow and we will be having a day out without Mom running out or dad leaving for work!I get to snuggle with Mom on the couch with dad and if she falls asleep I get to stay and snuggle right there with them too,only it looks like Candida is going to be sharing my space again!She thinks now that she's two she can stay and hang around with me!I don't think so!

Oh I have already planned to come and get you and the flock and take you with us tonight!Mom is running around here trying to get my daddy off to work the Barnstable 375th birthday celebration and fireworks and she has made chocolate rice krispie treats and has a baking dish with pumpkin squares in the oven right now,she needed an eggscuse to warm the house up as we are sooo cold!Mom had her slipper socks on and her winter coat last night and she even wore her coat to bed last night,then the neighbor three doors down was burning something in his backyard and even though we have all our windows closed the house smells like smoke and the air outside was so thick with it you couldn't even see the house next door!You aren't supposed to burn without a permit and burning season is over now and has been since May.Now that wasn't nice of your sweet daddy to sneak off with Petey when you could've made a very nice copilot and help him with the recyclables better than Petey would've!I always knew that you were very intelligent,now see you even have your sweet Momma baffled as to how you eggcaped from your cage!Did you do what my frother Kallie does,get out the feed bowl doors?Skin sis heard from the hospital and she has the appointment for her MRI on Sept8th at 9:10pm.Can you imagine that?Who wants to go to a hospital to get imaged at that late hour?It had better be nice and hot here tomorrow,Mom and I are sick of all this freezing cold,winter will be here soon enough,we don't need any of this right now,it can wait til February to get here not just now!Mom is hoping to BBQ tomorrow and enjoy some time in the sunshine,this cold is just so depressing!Be ready for us to come by and scoop you all up to take you to the Milonga Fair tonight,I can't wait to eat some pies in the pie contest,and play ring toss and watch Peepers win the pig race with Harry Pigger!And see if Kallie wins the face painting contest!I'll be by around 7:30 so we'll have enough time to look around first!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for my sweet fister,Loving you always and forever,Dixie

We had to do something for our sweet fister on her special day,having a hatchday and then being Queen of the Castle!Have we ever got lots in common right down to our hatchdays!
Today was a bright sunny but cold morning and the temperatures never got beyond 68 degrees!It felt more like a cold fall morning and Mom was so cold that she had to get her winter fleece coat on as she left the house this morning!It warmed up to a pleasant afternoon but that was so shortlived.She packed the trash in the car and was gone for the day yet again! I(Dixie)got to go with her and when she got to Nana's,Mom and Nana went to the dump,then to the bank,across to Marshalls,then to Walgreens where both Mom and Nana got some things that were on sale,then they went to Stop&Shop and both Mom and Nana bought some apple pies that were marked down,Mom got some danish for dad for a snack,and some muffins for the morning,and Mom got some coffee creamer for dad's thermos and coffee for the morning.They came back and had lunch at Nana's and then basically relaxed a little and were both in no mood for doing anymore running around as they have done that all week!When Mom got home around dinner time,she got my dad's things ready for him to go to work to work the fireworks and the big Town celebration for its 375th birthday.Mom then got dad his dinner and we all went to sit on the deck with him while he ate but it was already getting cold out there and again we got no showers and Mom just couldn't stand how cold it was and we all soon were brought back inside the house to our room.Our lows for the night will be 55 degrees and that to Mom feels too much like winter!Dad started to shut some windows because it was so ice cold and Mom ran upstairs to get her winter socks on her feet they were so cold!Mom is hoping that it will be warmer tomorrow and we can all go outside and sit in the sunshine again!My daddy is off to work for this last event til the Christmas strolls so no BBQ tomorrow,but hopefully we'll get to have a BBQ on Sunday and possibly Monday depending on our weather here!Nana bought more almond milk today and is ready to start making her smoothies again!Oh your silly daddy wanting to lift those heavy tree slices and having your sweet Momma help him!Its so good to see him interested in doing things again but we don't want him to hurt himself either!He's supposed to have fun watching you dance while he BBQ's!OOOOHHH!That blueberry,strawberry lemon trifle sounds so beak watering good!I'd like to get my beak into that one!Nana sends you all all her love,she loves you all soo sooo much!Mom and all of us here just can't wait for all the tourons to leave us alone,at least all the ones with kids will be gone by Monday and then we get the older tourons,the leaf peepers,and the ones who like to spend the fall season here!
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,D

We woke up to a bright sunny warm day here with the temperatures at 78.Mom again got us all cleaned and fed and then skin sis was here early and whisked Mom away with her for the third day in a row.They went and picked up Nana and off they went to skin sis's orthopedic drs appointment.She had an X-ray taken and then she got some steroids and some other pain meds for her back and was told she had to have an MRI done and then come back and they will discuss things then,she has a pinched disc in her back and is in a lot of pain.Then from there they went to Ocean State Job Lot and got 20 pound bags of wild bird food,then to Main Street in Falmouth to a pizzeria that skin sis wanted to dine at for her birthday,they all got a Garden salad,then they walked on Main street and checked out the Farmers Market,and walked up to the post office,there were so many people there out walking dining in the cafeteria style places and going to all the shops there.Then skin sis went to the eye drs and ordered new contacts,they went to the Dollar Tree and got some things,then they went to DQ and got a blizzard, then to Stop&Shop where Nana bought some ice cream and a frozen cake for skin sis's birthday to celebrate with,then back to Nana's to have the cake and ice cream,by the time they were done it was dinner time and skin sis took Mom home where she got dad some dinner,us all cleaned and fed and we got to spend about an hour on the deck with Mom and dad as they had dinner there,but the sun was going down fast and it was starting to get really cold out so we were all brought inside so Mom could do the dishes and get everything ready for dad for work tomorrow! And then Mom started getting everything ready for her to go out again tomorrow to the dump and a few other places they didn't have time for today!It was my baby fister Candida's hatch day today and Mom hasn't been home long enough to even make her a hatchday cake and she promises to make it up to her on Saturday when she finally has a day off to be home all day!Mom will tell Nana about the generic mucinex tablets and maybe they will be able to get some of them tomorrow when Mom again goes out for the day!Candi sure is changing as she gets older,she no longer wants to snuggle in her basket but with me and Mom under my blanket!I will definitely have you come make a flock visit if Candida decides she can pull my sore leg again!

Oh you sure are having quite the time there now aren't you all?You had me rolling on the floor when Doo decided to get neighbor Judy's butt while she was hugging your sweet Momma!Those beaks over there are sure working overtime!Nana has tried all kinds of cough syrups with guaifenisin in them and she has tried Mucinex for quite a while but that didn't work either!Nana just bought a new blender so she can start using the whey formula again,her old blender kept leaking everything all over the place!She is definitely going to try to keep up with the whey protein now that she has a new blender that won't leak and make a mess!Oh did my Mom sooo love being able to visit your wonderful Mom last night!It just made her day so bright!Nana's cough is bringing up some yellow stuff.Candida is being a pain in the tail feathers as she will not stay in her basket anymore and insists on snuggling with me under my blanket and Mom,Dad even tried to have her snuggle with him on the couch but she kept coming over to Mom and me!She'll be two tomorrow so is this the start of the terrible twos?Mom is taking skin sis out for her birthday tomorrow and she won't have time to make Candida a hatch day cake,between skin sis and Candida we'll be partying all day tomorrow!I hope that Mom gets home in time so Candida can have her turn at a party too!I'm so glad that Doo reminded your sweet Momma to pass out all the treats before bedtime last night!I think Angel and Candida will be such a sweet match together!They would make such wonderful bat birds together!And maybe she'll be a little more calmed down than she is right now!I think that would be so cool to have CUBird hanging upside down along with them!Now how does that get Elvis all pissed off by them hanging upside down bat like?Mom and all of us can't thank you enough for being there for us and Nana can't thank you enough for caring the way you all do for her!Mom will be sure to send out an email to you if she has any questions!Nana sends her love to all of you there and Bella says hello to Miranda and sends her her love too and Trixie II sends Carter a warm hello and they both send them warm wing hugs and beakie kisses too!

Now how can Doo lunge at your sweet daddy like that?And he was bringing him gifts of beak watering fancy too?Ooooh,Now ice cream is another thing in itself,if you're not very nice to the one who has it then you will never get any of it at all and that is something we all want for sure!I sure hope he just got up on the wrong side of the perch this morning!Nana did get the whey protein last year and she has been using it every so often depending on how she's been feeling about the choking incidents. Oh,those key lime pies are the best when they are frozen especially on those hot summer days,its so refreshing to eat it almost like ice cream too!Now what's with you not even getting a taste of those eggs and bacon your daddy made and the grey fisters did,what about you having some of what they're getting?That bat bird is a hummer attractor she was hanging like that with her bright reds and yellows showing off for the hummer to come on the deck to visit her!Angel sounds so sweet,I often wonder how Candida and Angel would get along together!I think Candida is too bossy,she gave Mom so much trouble last night and wouldn't settle in her basket,Mom had to finally bring her back to her cage in our room and leave her in the dark by herself for an hour or so(she hates that)and when she finally brought her back out to the tv room she got right in that basket on the coffee table and settled down for most of the night!Mom just can't wait to hear your sweet Momma's voice again,she so looks forward to their visits every week!

  like Petey is getting the one uppance on all of you there this time!Mom will definitely have that list ready tomorrow from Nana!She lost another two pounds and is now down to 75!She's losing and Mom's gaining,now if only Mom could give her some of her weight!I've been eating my bean mix with my medicine in it!Mom is making sure that Kallie is locked out of my feed dishes so he can't get in that way either to eat my food!
It was good to have Mom home with us all day and not to have her distracted by so many things she had to do!I think we'll have Mom to ourselves tomorrow too and that might be the last time we see her for the rest of the week!

We woke to another nice day here with the temperatures at 75 after having once again a cold freezing night the temps dipping down to 56 and a cool morning,the afternoons are just perfect,and it feels more like a fall day than a summer one lately.Mom cleaned all our cages this morning and gave us our warm bean mix and then she started getting some chores done,and then skin sis called and told Mom she was coming down to spend her lunch break with her as she is working in Sandwich which is about a 10 to 15 minute drive from here so Mom made a turkey sub for her that she had bought the other day as she had no idea what else she could make at the last minute,they both went out to the deck and spent skin sis's break there,and as they were eating the hummingbird came by and had a drink,it made skin sis's day to see him!It was a fairly quiet day here after skin sis went back to work Mom finished cleaning out our room and before she knew it dad was on his way home and it was time to think about dinner so Mom got the pork tenderloin out she had BBQ'd yesterday and heated that up and got some peas and carrots and some basmati rice medley for dinner for dad.While Mom was getting dinner ready we all got to go on the deck and enjoy what was left of the sunshine,and no shower today as it was already starting to get cold again.While we were out there,we got some rice and peas and fresh fruit,the hummingbird came back and had a nice long drink at the feeder and then came up on the deck and tried to get close to Candida who was being bat girl hanging from the top of her cage,Mom thinks the hummer was trying to make friends with Candi,and Candi kept calling out to the hummer!Dad told Mom to make sure she takes Candida out with them so that the hummer will be sure to come back because that's what it did the last time we were out with them,it came up on the deck to check out Candida!Maybe because she has that red belly and tail?
You are so right that our Mom's are truly sisters and no matter what they have to keep on going,always taking care of everyone else and every birdie else too!Ooooohhhh!Would I soo love to have you come up here and take care of our footies and I just think my Momma would so love to have you tickle her toes!Mom agrees with your sweet daddy about not having you come outside without having your flights clipped!Mom lets me out with my flights,but I can't really fly now and my daddy was getting nervous and was yelling for Mom to come back out to get me,she left me with him on the deck table,I was sharing his pork tenderloin dinner with him and his peas and he was getting upset because if those loud motorcycles came by he was afraid I'd be taking off somewhere!Mom had to drop the dishes and come back out to get me!I sure agree with you that you should be able to go upstairs and snuggle with your Momma and daddy,if Petey can do it then why not you?Poor Miranda and CUBird not being able to share in the peanut butter toast with your Mom!It looks lik

Mom spent the day with skin sis who came over early with her laundry so Mom and skin sis did two loads of laundry between the two of them!Then Mom had skin sis clean out more of her things from the Mud room and when she cleaned the cabinet out with her clothes in it Dad dragged that down the cellar so Mom could put things in it there to keep it neat and then,Mom grabbed some hamburgers,hot dogs,chicken burgers,and a pork tenderloin and dad got the grill ready and they BBQ'd and we got to join them outside,after they were done eating Mom brought out the corn on the cob and we even got to have some of that and was that really good!After everyone was done eating Mom and skin sis pulled in the laundry which dried really well and folded everything and put it away.Then dad and skin sis pulled the deacon bench that Mom smashed her foot on from the dining room out to the Mud Room and so now there is a big space there that Mom has to clean up and see what she can do with it!Skin sis filled up four big boxes of clothes she pulled out from the Mud Room and one big box of shoes!Then after Mom cleaned up the kitchen,she went upstairs and made up the bed.Mom made sandwiches for dad for work tomorrow and got the coffee ready so she can sit down and relax later on tonight.She thought her foot was getting better as it wasn't so sore yesterday but today it really started kicking in with the pain,but Mom had no time today to deal with it having to run up and down several sets of stairs between the laundry and putting it away upstairs,and then having to stand on her feet and BBQ.Then having to run in and out of the house to get stuff for everyone!OOHHH!You got a double working over on your pin feathers and you got both your sweet Mom and dad with that beak of yours!I don't blame you for not wanting to go back into your condo either,I felt like that also if I was allowed to be out!Mom gave me my bean mix this morning with my meds and she took out my pellets til I finished,well,she never gave me my pellets back and I had finished my bean mix and she got busy with skin sis,laundry,the grill and I was so hungry all day,finally after she got everything done and cleaned my condo for the night,she realized she had left it in the bottom condo and never gave it to me!Oh would I love to come and sit with you and giggle too while your sweet Parronts watch tv!

  Hi Cookie
I'm so sorry for the c/p tonight but Mom has a bad headache and her foot is really hurting,please forgive me as its also really late and Mom has had a real long day!
We woke up to a dark dreary morning and then it really started to rain! It was cleared up by the time Mom left to go run her errands with Nana though.By the time the afternoon rolled around the sun was out brightly and the temperature was up to 72.Mom took me with her and I got to stay in Nana's sunroom with Trixie II and look out the window at all that was going on in the backyard.Mom and Nana went to the dump,then to CVS,then to the bank,Walmart,Shaws,the Dollar Tree and True Value.Mom picked up a 50 pound bag of wild bird seed in Walmart and both Mom and Nana had a hard time picking that up off the shelf so Mom found an employee and he lifted it up for her and put it in the shopping cart for her and then told her to get a cart boy to put it in the car for her.Well,Mom asked for some help and the guy who mans the door said he'd find someone but that never happened so Mom and Nana dealt with it themselves and struggled to get it in the car along with the two 15 pound bags of charcoal she bought for the grill.Mom picked up some hamburgers in Shaws for the grill along with some sandwich bread and then they went to the Dollar Store for some items they needed,Mom got some frozen veggies,by the time they headed back home it was after three thirty and neither one of them had had any lunch so Nana made them a salad with cranberries and tomatoes with tuna.Mom has such a bad headache which is strange as she hasn't had one of those in a long time and her sore foot is hurting all the way up to her leg!Skin bro had called Mom while they were out and wants Mom to give him the money to pay for his car insurance again so Mom had to eat and run at Nana's and by the time she got home Dad was already in the garage waiting for Mom to come home so he could help unload her car for her,which Mom was so thankful for,Mom and Nana had to get it from Nana's car into Mom's car and that was a lot of lifting for the two of them,Mom didn't want Nana lifting it as she was afraid Nana would get those awful chest pains she sometimes gets again but Nana was so stubborn she insisted on helping Mom.You should've seen them trying to put the new shop light in Nana's laundry room Mom was kneeling on the dryer trying to reach up to the ceiling to get it in but Mom nor Nana could get it in without falling.Those shop lights are hard to put in with those prong like things on the ends of them and you can't push too hard or you'll break them.Mom gave up and she's hoping to get my dad or someone who is much taller to get it in for Nana.
Mom will be on the lookout for the email with the questions about Nana!Your poor sweet Mom with all that work she had to do and all that waiting so long for the car and having to rush back for the webinar like that!I do hope she gets a relaxing weekend and doesn't have to be under so much str

We woke up to a mostly cloudy cool day here and then by the afternoon the sun came out nicely and it got up to 76 degrees,Mom pulled some weeds in her garden,cleaned our cages and did some house chores and collected the trash and made out some bills and got them in the mail.She made rice krispie treats for dessert for tonight and made rice and veggies for dinner,we got some rice,basmati and was it good,even my picky baby fister Candida loved it and ate it too!We got to get outside on the deck for some time in the sun and a soaking shower!We have been getting really freezing nights here as low as 56 the other night and the mornings have been cool while the afternoons have been so warm and pleasant,it almost feels like a fall day instead of a summer one!Oh does my Mom hate those service things for the car,you have an appointment and you wind up staying there til sundown!It sure does eat up all your time that's for sure,even if you do leave eggstra early to try and beat the others!And then to rush home to get that webinar in for the hormone replacement therapy!How can one even concentrate after a busy long morning like your sweet Momma just had?We are soo praying for your sweet daddy to feel better fast and we too can't wait for him to get to the doctor appointment so maybe finally they can find out where the problem lies to help your daddy get back on the right track again!Mom just can't thank your sweet Momma enough for helping her with finding out about Nana's constant coughing,no one seems to care,they figure she's old and why waste time or bother which is so unfair and not right!Can you believe that Candida was preening me while we were outside?I kept begging her and she obliged me!Mom is always trying to preen me at night when I only want a full body rub!Mom has been giving me an eggstra dose of my meds and I'm feeling so much better because of it,she's going to see if I'll be all right with the regular dose tomorrow as I'm going to Nana's with her and it will be late by the time she gets home to give me the second half!

We woke up to a sunshine day and it was a cold night and a cool morning,but as the morning progressed the sun came out and warmed everything up,we got up to 76 degrees.Skin sis came over early this morning and picked Mom up and they went to zumba class and Mom was not able to really put her all into it,her sneakers were squeezing her painful toe and the side of her foot!She couldn't wait to get back out to the car and take them off and get her thongs on her feet!Then they went and picked up Nana and went to Dennis to the AAA so Nana could get her registration renewed for her car,then they went to a new pet store there but they were small and didn't have much for birds,then they went to grab a bite to eat and then to HarborFreight store in Hyannis(it has everything there from tools to automotive,batteries,tarps,household things etc,wood stoves and Mom got another one of those nice florescent lights that you can use like a pocket type light,the batteries that Nana had wanted were gone,I guess AA's are quite popular!Then they went back to Mashpee to Roche Bros grocery store and Mom and Nana got some blueberries that were on sale!After skin sis drove Nana home,she took Mom home and Mom had to get my Dad's dinner fast(Nana had given Mom some leftover turkey she had made the night before with stuffing and a sweet potato and gravy to take back to him)my dad has to work long line painting again tonight,more of the white lines,so as she put the dinner in the oven to warm up that Nana sent home for him,she cleaned our cages and then we got to go outside on the deck while the sun was still out and join dad for dinner and while we were out there all the birds disappeared,and a poor lone grackle was squished up on the bird feeder not moving a muscle,Kallie kept looking up to the sky and not long after that a huge hawk flew down to the yard across the street,all the sparrows flew out from the bush there and everything got stone quiet,Mom moved our cages inside the house and got us back to our room.That was all we had of the sun today!
Oh you should've seen how happy my Mom was to hear your sweet wonderful Mom's voice on the phone again,she has sooo sooo missed her so much!Oh noooo!Not the pin feather thing again?I agree with you Yuck to the pickles but yummmmmmm!to the zucchini bread!Candi has really been a brat not wanting to snuggle down in her basket on the coffee table and she keeps flying out and coming back to Mom so Mom has to put her in her cage until she decides she's going to stay in her basket!It usually takes three tries with her before she will settle down like she's supposed to do!If I have to go through another footie soak I think I'm gonna squawk!Then that fresh Candi pooped on my back when we were out on the deck so Mom had to give me a bath to get it off!

How awful that your poor sweet Mom can't even find the time to eat lunch even!Mom's garden is just a waste and she too and Nana didn't get to plant it till June sometime when the weather started getting warmer!She just got some green beans and one sugar snap pea and now her tomatoes are starting to grow.Mom has never been lucky to have had a zucchini,just the flowers which she cooks and they are soo good!That zucchini bread sure is delicious!We are all praying for your sweet daddy to be taken care of once and for all and his needs met so he can feel better and get back to doing what he likes to do!Mom is going to get us out on the deck for a soaking shower and some sunshine and maybe we'll get to dine with the parronts on the deck again and I'll be able to dine with my daddy again and its too bad that Candida is upset about the whole thing,after all I was first in this flock and always had daddy to myself!I too only wish you were here to be with me,I just know that I would feel so much better faster with you to snuggle down with!Would my Mom love to hear from your sweet Mom again,she sooo misses her big time!Its so good to hear that your sweet Momma is feeling better from her sinuses,that is no fun to be feeling so miserable like that!

How wonderful to hear that Uncle Harry is doing so much better now and got to celebrate his 80th party on Saturday!But your poor sweet Mom with that horrid sinus headache yesterday!And you all made such a nice mess for your sweet Momma to pick up after!My Momma had a bad day yesterday as she got her laundry out on the line and then had dad start the grill for the BBQ.As she and skin sis had gone to the Church's Feast Day and took me and Celine with them in our stroller,but by the time they got there everyone was leaving and there was nothing left in the way of food.Mom and skin sis greeted their old Pastor who was asking about the Tweeties and talked to several friends who wanted to check us out,then they put us back in the car and went home.Just as Mom put all the meat on the grill she felt a big drop on her head,then another and another and then it got really dark and did it dump!She left the grill to run to the back yard to pull the sheets off the line and the clothes(skin sis had done her laundry too)After they brought the clothes inside half wet now,Mom ran to the grill to continue grilling,then as it really dumped on her,everyone sat up on the deck under the umbrella while she got soaked cooking in the downpour!Then she remembered that she had two cakes she had made in the oven and had to leave the grill and run inside again and got the cakes out just in time along with getting the corn on the cob brought outside.Then after she had served everyone and done all the dishes and cleaned up and served the cake,(she ate a chicken burger on the run)as she was too busy to sit down for a minute to eat,she took care of us and took us all out on the deck to join everyone,as my frothers,Peepers,Celine and Mario enjoyed the rain showers in the deck cage,they were having a blast as it rained down on them!Mom didn't love it she was too soaked to the skin!Mom then dremmeled Celine's beak,Kallie's beak and did a full birdicure,nails,flight feathers and weights on everyone.Then last night I took a bad fall and my legs got stuck up over my head again and Mom worked all night to get them down where they should be and I cried as it hurt for her to touch me.She ran my leg under the hottest water I could stand and kept massaging me til she finally got my legs down then she slept with me and breathed her warm breath on my feet to keep them warm as I refused to sit on my thermal perch.Then as soon as I was able to perch without falling she put me to bed in my cage around 3am.My dad is going back to work tonight for more long line painting(the white lines)this time so he will be gone all night again.We have been without phone service since Thursday again and thought we'd never get it back,dad had to keep calling them finally got it around 2:30 this afternoon,Mom has been a wreck trying to check on Nana without any communication.I enjoyed dinner with my daddy on the deck table tonight while my fister Candida had to watch and cry her head off from the deck cage!My dad

Mom had me pose on the huge zucchini that Nana got from her garden!Does Nana have a green thumb or what?Every year she at least gets one or two zucchini's and Mom is lucky if she can get flowers from them!Nana has been getting lots of squash flowers also and she gave Mom alot to make!Mom tried getting Trixie II to pose with the zucchini but she kept taking off or turned her back right when Mom snapped the picture!Oooohhh it sure sounds like you had an eggciting day with that chipmunk running through your house,now I would've thought they would've let you chase that thing outta the house,after all you're really good at chasing Petey around!LOL!Now just how come you can't be snuggling with the parronts in bed like Doo does!We better get some input on that one!Now that's really freezing out,49 is absolutely frigid!Mom thought that she was gonna turn into an ice sculpture in church tonight,Man they had that A/C blasting on 20 below,Mom brought her sweater but it was still way too cold!Did you help your sweet daddy put the eggstra blanket on the bed?Mom held me all night last night and both mom and dad fell asleep on the sofa with the tv on and me snuggling on dad's leg while Mom was sleeping in between dads legs!They never got up til 5am to go upstairs to bed for a few hours!We all got rudely put back in our cages at that hour!Mom had given me an eggstra dose of my meds this morning and as soon as that started to kick in I started feeling better!Mom wouldn't let me out of my cage all day,not even to let me stay in the acrylic cage and look out the window!Mom was so happy that I could stand today with my footie down!I ate good and Mom weighed me and I'm at 69 grams today.I can't thank your wonderful amazing,loving Mama for being there for me,she really knows her stuff,my Mom says that she is my angel!She is my Mom's angel also,you don't know just how much we all love you here,my dad says that she's his angel also,if only you knew just how much love we have for you all!Words could never tell you how we all feel here!
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

Mom left early this morning and the traffic was really bad for some reason and for a trip to Nana's which is 15 minutes at the most turned into 45 minutes.Mom and Nana went to the dump,then the bank and the Post Office,Mom had to keep circling around and around as there was not a space to be had,she even went across the street to the GAP parking lot and to the third parking lot way out back but there was nothing there either.Finally Mom went back across the street by the Post Office and there was one spot available.Mom went into the Post Office eggspecting to see a line out the door but there were only a few people ahead of her!Where were all the people who were parked in the spaces set aside for the Post Office?Then they went to Walgreen's so Nana could get some things she needed there and then on to Stop&Shop and both Mom and Nana picked up some things there,both Mom and Nana got some bottled water,Nana got a cantaloupe and a few other things.Then they went back to Nana's and had a salad for lunch and some watermelon and cantaloupe and then it was time for them to leave and go to our house.Well,Mom went to use the phone,(which was supposedly fixed yesterday)and it was completely dead,no dial tone,no static,nothing!She wanted to call skin sis to have her meet us and as the phone was dead,Mom tried to get her on the computer by IMing but she wasn't answering(we later found out that there's no reception where she works)so by that time my dad came home and he had to call Verizon again and deal with all the robots,couldn't talk to a real person,and they won't be coming to fix it or find out about it til Monday sometime,so we have a whole three days without a phone again.Mom is not happy about that at all,she can IM dad and the skin sibs but if she should need to check on Nana she's plumb out of luck!I guess Verizon don't work on weekends.We just hope that nothing happens until after Monday sometime when they get our service fixed again!
When Nana got home tonight,(skin sis drove her home from their outing),she was locked out of her house,when Mom drove her to our house,she thought she had her key and didn't,skin sis called Mom's sister and they couldn't find a key,Mom's sister thought she had the key,so Mom's niece got to climb in the window to get to the front door to open it so Nana could get in her own house!Nana had a bad time of it tonight,she couldn't stop the choking and coughing and its really wearing her down,she's tried everything and nothing seems to be working,it wasn't a good day at all.I sure hope tomorrow is much better with no problems,only thing,can't talk on the phone til Monday sometime if they ever decide to get this thing fixed once and for all!
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

  toes have really been hurting so bad she can see the pain in my eyes again,and as always after I get the eggstra doses of it I start to feel better,Mom is getting worried about my wings getting apartheid as one of them is beginning to droop,she has been massaging my wings for a long time each night and is now thinking of clipping my flight feathers as they are doing nothing to help me when I jump off things to get to where I'm going!What does your sweet Momma think of that,mom needs to know that she's doing the right thing by me!Mom and I both trust what your amazing Mom have to say!

Now that's not fair!Why should Miranda get a peanut from your sweet daddy and you get ignored,you like them too!Mmmmmm!I can just smell those eggs and bacon!I just love eggs and to grab any bacon when it comes my way is priceless!I think that Petey is hanging out with you fids way waaaay too much,now he seems to think he's a fid and can perch on your Mom's shoulder like that!Now that's really pushin it to get close and birdsonal with Doo,just one beakful of doggie nose would have Petey gone from that spot forever!Oooohhhh!birdiecures not my idea of fun!Mom is having such a hard time with Candi staying in her basket now,she got a taste of being in my blanket wrapped around Mom's neck and now that's where she wants to be now.She gives my Mom a hard time every night when she gets put in her basket,so now Mom will bring her back to her cage in our room and make her stay in the dark til she decides she's gonna stay put in the basket.She doesn't like that and will keep yelling for Mom to come and get her!
My Mom after getting my dad off to work this morning waited for the Verizon man to come and fix our phones and he got here just a bit before 9:00am and was out there in front of the house on the pole in his bucket truck,he was up then he came down,got something out of his truck,was back up again and was there for nearly an hour going up and down in the bucket truck!He texted my dad and told him that it was all fixed now and dad had tried to call mom but he couldn't get through at the time so he IM'd Mom and told her to IM him back so he knows that it was still working for him!Then Mom worked on her chores and made squash flowers to eat and checked her garden for more green beans and any peas but there was nothing right now that's ready to be picked!Skin sis came down to spend her lunch hour here with Mom and so Mom took us all out on the deck while she made something for my skin sis to eat and we enjoyed the time in the warm sun,we even got a shower too!Skin sis couldn't stay long as she had to get back to work and she had to leave in plenty of time before she got stuck behind a tourist who drove well under the speed limit!The President is here on the Islands and you should see everyone trying to get here,skin bro can't even get back over the Bridge to get home,there's a ten mile back up to get onto the Bridge tonight and its only Thursday but that's because of the President being here!Mom and dad dined out on the deck again tonight and we again got to join them and had more showers but the sun went down fast and it was starting to get cold!Our highs were 75 and our lows will be 62.Mom will be gone again tomorrow to help Nana with more yard work if it doesn't rain and go to the dump and the bank and the Post office!I sure hope that Mom will come home at a decent time tomorrow!
My dad has about six more days of long line painting and might get done with it by next week or so!Mom has been giving me eggstra doses of my medicine because my foot and toe

Mom got up early this morning and after she fed and cleaned us skin sis came and whisked her away to Zumba class and then as soon as they got out of zumba,it started to rain,just a small drizzle but it was starting to rain.They went to Nana's and from there they went to Hyannis to get some errands done there,they went to Hanlon's shoe store so Nana could get a good pair of sandals to wear instead of her sneakers,then they went to Trader Joe's and got some more bean mix for us and a few other things,then they went to Shaws and Mom got a few things there including some turkey tenderloin for the BBQ,then they went back to Falmouth and grabbed a bite to eat and looked around Pier One Imports and Nana saw an end table she liked but she didn't buy it,as they left the store it was down pouring really hard,then they went to Mashpee and to Roche Bros and both Mom and Nana bought ten ears of butter and sugar corn for $1.99,I sure can't wait to get my beak on some of that!Then when skin sis dropped Nana off to take Mom home it was dumping heavy again,and when Mom finally got home it really came down again hard and heavy!Mom was happy to finally get home and in the dry house.After Mom put all the groceries away and my dad's dinner and all of us cleand and taken care of(Dad had given us our snacks),Mom tried to call Nana to tell her that she got home and skin sis had been trying to call Mom but not getting anywhere!We got two phone calls but all they were was static,then when Mom tried calling Nana there was nothing but static and no dial tone and the phone said no line,so Dad had to call Verizon and tell them what was going on with his cell phone,so now they are coming here to fix the so called short in the line! Mom is hoping that tomorrow will be a better day!These dark days and pouring rain really make you want to sleep!It never got any higher than 70 degrees here and it was mainly 64 for a good part of the day!
My dad was gone all night last night and both me and Candida got to sleep with Mom,while Kallie got to stay in his sleeping box!
What awesome news that your sweet daddy is feeling better and we are praying constantly that he keeps improving each and every day!Ohhh what a bad baby Josh was to eggscape from his cage!Oh no don't tell me that you will have to endure that torture and be burritoed in that towel just to get your nails done!Mom is going to get our weights taken as she hasn't gotten to do that lately either!Candida is very spoiled now and won't stay in her sleeping basket on the coffee table,she wants to stay with me in my blankie wrapped around Mom's neck,she keeps getting out and flying after Mom in the dark,she really missed my daddy last night,hopefully it will be a nice day tomorrow and we can come outside again and not be in total lockdown!You just have to watch out for those bossy tiels,let me tell you!Mario sure turned into one of those and will push his way to wherever he wants to be or have!
Wishing you a greyt day and I

Oh how wonderful to hear that the same day procedure went well for your sweet daddy!I agree with you that you should be able to help him with the barium swallow reflex and help feed him and chew his food for him,now I know that you wouldn't do what Miranda did to him!EWWWWWWW!Now I don't think that your sweet daddy would appreciate having that done to him again,at least like you said you will be able to dance for him and not throw up on him,I think he will enjoy your little dance and it will make him happy to watch you do your Too moves and cheer him up!Your poor sweet Momma in such a horrible situation between your poor daddy and then all the other things she has to do and it being a long day on top of it all!We too will be in lock down all day tomorrow and won't get any outside time as Mom will be gone all day and won't even be home when dad gets here as she and skin sis will be going to the gym early again and besides its going to be dumping rain here all day and dad is hoping that he gets the roads he has to do done before the rains set in!Candida refused to sleep in her basket last night and preferred to sleep in Mom's sleeve with me in my blanket and all three of us fell asleep on dad,she was surprisingly good and didn't move like Mom was so afraid she would!Mom is hoping that Candida will settle in her basket tonight when dad isn't going to be here!Mom got us all outside for the last time today and we got our soaking showers and our time to sit in the sun.We even got to dine with them and it was a short dinner as my dad had to get ready for his shower and bed,so we couldn't linger while the sun set and the wild birds chowed down before they went to roost.Please give your daddy a warm hug from all of us here and your sweet Momma eggstra big hugs for all she is going through!You tell her that if she needs us anytime any where we are always here for her and we send her all our love!Loving you always and forever,my sweet fister and sending you warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses,Love,Dixie

Skin sis picked Mom up this morning after she just got the laundry out of the washer and was getting ready to hang it on the line when skin sis scooted Mom with her to Nana's after she helped her get it on the line.They both worked in the hot sun picking up the dead branches that were chopped down from before and bagged them in garbage bags to take to the dump,there were alot of pickers and thorns in them also and they got three big garbage bags full and skin sis packed them in her car and Mom and she took them to the dump,Nana had mowed her front yard even when Mom had told her to wait!Then when Mom and skin sis got back here,Mom went right into BBQ mode and dad had started the grill and Mom shucked some corn she bought on Friday and got that ready along with the burgers and hot dogs and a pork chop.After she got the food on the grill and the smoke stopped,she came in and got us all outside and gave us a soaking shower so we could dry off in the sunshine.When Mom,Dad and skin sis were done eating,we had gotten some corn on the cob,Mom and skin sis took us all back inside so Mom could take the laundry back in off the line!Then Mom folded all the laundry and put it away,got a care package with the leftovers from the BBQ for skin sis to take home so she could have something to eat for the week and then Mom was so tired that she went up and took a shower!
It was a beautiful sunny day with the temperatures at 76 degrees and our lows are at 62 for tonight.
Please send your sweet daddy all our love and Nana and the whole family here send him prayers for healing and comfort and peace from pain!Mom constantly puts both your sweet Parront's name in the special intentions book every week at church and won't stop til we know everything is on the good side of things!
Now what is Blue trying to do to your sweet Momma?Make her dance around without any clothes on?I think Blue and Trixie II should get together,she does the same thing to Nana,and half the times Nana has no idea that she is hanging out because of what Trixie II has done to her clothes that have buttons or snaps on them!
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,Love,Dixie

Mom went down to Nana's last Friday to reprogram her VCR as her shows weren't recording and Mom had tried everything and was going to try one last attempt at trying to get the VCR to work when she told Nana to put the tv on for her so she could start working on it and the message on the screen said that this device wasn't in use,so Nana called the cable company and had to go down with the boxes to get new ones as neither of her tvs were connected,Comcast had put a blockage on the pole outside for non payment but in the meantime skin bro had gone to some store over the Bridge where he was working at the time and paid the bill,half of it I guess and Nana didn't know what else to do but be reinstated and have her tvs connected in her name and she only took the real basic cable,when skin bro came home he had his receipt but was so upset that Mom and Nana did that,but Nana had already lost a full week on her programs and then she was out three days without tv to watch and then she got the bill yesterday as they were charging her for the days she wasn't even connected so they gave her a days credit!
You sweet daddy is just so lucky to have your wonderful Momma there by his side,knowing all she does,she is the one who is caring for him not the VA,nor the drs and the hospitals,she is the one who took good care of my daddy and me too!We are all so blessed and thankful that your wonderful Momma is in our lives,its just so sad that people and fids are thrown around with no thought to what they are feeling with the thought in the backs of the medical fields minds that they won't be here for long so why bother?Thats how Nana feels with what they are doing to her and her eyes and her constant coughing and choking,it seems no one wants to help or even care!
We are all just so ecstatic about what a greyt job your wonderful sweet Mom did for your daddy!Its so good to hear that they went out to dinner together and had a good time!I just know that if you get to come out and snuggle with him you'll make him feel so much better when he gets to caress your feathers and feel you warm next to him!Now how can Miranda to that to your daddy,grab him on the ear like that,I can only imagine how loud that sounded from here!EWWWW!Now that's just awful having big Blue poop in your sweet Mom's shoe like that!It really must be so good to hear your sweet daddy laugh again!Please tell Aunt Jeanne hello for us and give that baby Angel a kiss on his head from all of us here too!
Mom had us outside twice today but dinner time was not so much fun because the sun had already gone down,the parronts went on an ice cream run and were late getting home from church,where Mom put both your sweet parronts name in our special intentions book for another full week of prayers for healing and peace from pain!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses,my sweet fister!Loving you always and forever,your frother Dixie
