I took Norman to the vet to get his trims. I mentioned to the vet about how Petfinder finally had a local bird rescue in Rio Rancho. Her eyes lit up and asked if I was considering adopting a bird. I said yes but was concerned how Norman would respond having been top/only birdie for so long. She asked me to wait for a minute and brought in Jude who was abandoned at the office when his owner moved out of town. According to the vet,his cage looked like it had never been cleaned. He was never let out of his cage and he had wing injuries that were never taken care of. Jude had spent close to a month at the vets office before I adopted him. Now he has a new forever home with Norman and me..

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having the most wonderful Easter ever! Things got busy around here so I have to keep it short today!
We are cooking a ham but we are not really going to have a sit down dinner since mom and Ian are working. Dad is in Montana somewhere! Everyone will eat when they can!

Mom finally got herself an MP3 player. Her's broke months ago and she just can't stand the "Leisure Suit Larry Lounge" music anymore! She found all the music files and started loading songs on the MP3 but when she looked, the songs were not there! It took my genius mom about half and hour to realize that Jennifer had her MP3 player plugged in also so mom put all that music on Jennifer's MP3 player! Boy is she going to be surprised!hahahahahahaha Mom is such a dork!!

Happy Easter to you, Norman and mom!

I hope you are having a great day! Absolutely nothing of interest going on in my world but I did want to come by and say hello!
We have been doing more spring cleaning this week and it's really not very exciting at all!! Mom scrubbed the sliding glass door and the screen! It's so bright and pretty and I have an excellent view of the flags out in front of the complex! It's always windy around here so they are always flapping! They have red tulips on the flags and I enjoy watching them wave in the wind!
I hope you are enjoying your day and that window cleaning is not the most exciting thing going on in your life! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I hope you are having a great day! It's very pretty here! A real spring day!
Mom was off last night and she'll be off again on Friday. She couldn't get two days off in a row this week because there is too much work. It's clearance week plus they added a special weekend ad. The store is having it's Fuschia event this weekend so there will be special sales to go along with it. It's an annual event and everyone looks forward to it. They have geranium and fuschia starts for sale and if you bring your own pot the garden staff will plant them for you. Hanging baskets are a big thing up here so by next week you will be seeing them everywhere.
I have spent the morning trying to keep Merlin away from mom! He had his outside on the balcony time and play with the ribbon time but he is trying to butt into my climb on mom time! I told him he needs to go grab a nap until I'm ready for my apple and then he can jump up on the computer desk again!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's a spectacular day!

I hope you are having a great day! It sounds like you live in a "if you don't like the weather, wait 10 minutes" kind of place! The desert in California was like that too! It keeps it interesting!
I can't wait to see the new portrait of you and Norman! Your mom has some fabulous art and I always enjoy seeing it. I bet it is going to be fabulous since both you guys are so very handsome!
Mom is going off to the library soon to get me a new stack of books. She has been trying to find springtime stories for us to read but she got some goofy ones too! As long as the pictures are nice and colorful I like them. I seem to like books that rhyme too!
Mom and the kids went to see Captain America last night. They liked it! I'll have to wait for the DVD. Mom saw a poster for Rio II and I can't wait to see that one. I've watched Rio a whole bunch of times and really love it!
I hope you have the most wonderful day! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! I just finished some toast with peanut butter while mom ate her ruby red grapefruit. She loves that stuff but I won't even try it. It looks weird to me!
We are getting stuff ready for mom to start her workweek tonight. She'll be working 7 days straight to get back to her usual schedule. No more weekend ads scheduled for a while so she can go back to her old schedule. She figures sometime near Easter there will be more but since she and the kids are going to see Captain America 2 next Thursday she won't be able to work Thursday night anyway.
I will be supervising some cooking in a bit and I am hoping for some birdie bread today. The dog needs more meat cooked and we need to have a few meals done since everyone is working different schedules for the rest of the week. I think the birdie bread should be the first thing we do!
I hope your day is just fantastic! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!

I hope you had a really great day! I just hung out and played with toys mostly. Mom and I sorted out some drawers and got rid of some stuff that we don't use anymore. It was fun to see what was in the drawers but there wasn't anything that interested me in there!

  Hi Jude & Flock,

It's Oz and I wanted to Thank You so much for stopping by with Congrat's on my winning BOTD. It meant so much to my Mom and Me. We almost miss it because Mom had to go out today and she almost didn't put her computer thingy on but we were so glad she did because my face was right there in that BOTD box. I had such a fun time at the Castle with Queen Snowflake, her Family and mine as well as some Friends. Hope you enjoyed yourself while you were there. My typist (A.K.A. Mom) just got home a little while ago so she's helping me with all my Thank You notes. Thank You again Everybirdie and have a great week. Here's a vote for all of you.

Love & Winghugs,
Oz (Your Pink Friend)

I hope you had a wonderful day! Happy Last day of winter! Spring will be here tomorrow even if the weather outside doesn't look like it. We had some really nice sun breaks today but some really big downpours also! The downpours seem to happen when mom had to take the dog out or go to the market! She seems to be a rain magnet!hahahaha
Mom was off last night and tonight too. She is usually off on Thursday and Friday nights but the store she works at is having a big sale for Friday and Saturday so mom has to be there on Thursday night to get it set up. On Friday she will be helping with freight since most of the freight crew will be off. They did inventory on Tuesday so the schedules got changed.
Mom got us a lovely white cake with spring sprinkles on it to celebrate the coming of spring! It was yummy and the cat even had a bit of it! He's not a normal cat you know!hehehehehe
Happy spring to you all and I hope it's a wonderful season for us all!

I hope you are having a great day! Spring has sprung up here. We have had a bit of rain but the temps have been near 60 and the cotton wood trees are bright pink and the frogs are delivering me joyous noise every single night! Now normally I don't really like hearing those hundreds of frogs but since they are announcing spring, I will put up with them!
Mom went out to the market for a while and she is going to hit the library soon. New books for Sugar! YAY!!! We will get some dinner done and then I hope we can have more popcorn and watch another movie.
You enjoy your evening! I hope it's just perfect!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. I'm getting some computer time this morning! It's been way to busy around here lately and I just don't like it!
Yesterday we took a break in the morning and watched Catching Fire. I really like it! Lots of action and you know I love action movies!
Today we are getting a bit of cooking done and getting mom ready to start her work week. She is going in an hour early tonight since I have been told we are losing an hour tonight! I really don't see any reason that the time has to change! It seems to be working just fine the way it is!
Mom went to Petco to get my Higgins Sunburst and they are out of it again! They say the warehouse is out of it so there is nothing they can do. She got me some Higgins Safflower Gold and it sort of looks and smells the same to me. There are no sunflower seeds in it but that is okay with me! It's only part of what I eat everyday so as long as she keeps a big supply of apples I will be a happy zon!
Spring is inching ever closer and that is making the frog outside my window go crazy! It started with just a few of them but last night it sounded like there were about a thousand of them out there! As long as they are here to announce spring I suppose I can put up with them!
I do hope you enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug as I waddle off!

I hope you are having a great day. It's cloudy up here and the rain will start soon but that is the way it is suppose to be this time of the year. We did have 2 really nice days so I can't complain about a little liquid sunshine!

I think spring it pretty close now because the pigeons outside have moved from the front to the eaves over our balcony. They do that in the spring. Mom will be cleaning poop off the balcony now but she would never complain. It's nice to hear them cooing out there and mom says they live here too! Some of the neighbors complained last year and they did the power washing up on their balconies to chase them away. I think that is why they came over here because we don't say a word about them being there! Mom is use to cleaning up poop!

We are doing some cooking today and then mom will get her stuff ready for her workweek to start tonight. I really think weekends are just too short.

Enjoy your day and I do hope it's a great one! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a great day! We are having what we in the Northwest call a "Trick the Tourist" kind of day! It's a day where the sky is blue and there are just a few white puffy clouds. Not real warm but you can't tell what the temps are from a picture! The tourist board runs out and takes pictures down at the waterfront to get people to come visit Washington! They are in for a huge surprise when they get here and it's raining for 3 weeks straight!
OH! I love it! So sneaky!hehehehehehe
Mom found a really cool screensaver of an amazon! The background is green and there is a really handsome amazon peaking at me from the right bottom corner! I have named him Wilbur and he is my computer buddy! She had to go get a new screensaver after she reloaded the programs!
The computer is working well and mom found a virus program, downloaded it and is running it every day! I just hope this never happens again!! She is using Avast because the skin brother suggested it. It sure did take mom a long time to figure it all out but hey! She did it! I must say that I'm impressed!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's an awesome one!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you had a great day! It was busy around here with lots of chores that needed to be done and some errands too. I sat and watched a movie with the skin sister called Oceans 11 and I have to say there were no oceans in it at all so I don't know why it was called that. I suppose it was okay but not the kind of movie I usually would watch!
The computer still has some issues but it is working. Mom had been using dad's laptop while he is gone but he will be back in a few days and when he goes back out on the road he'll be taking the laptop with him. Mom ran another scan last night and removed another virus. She thinks that it has something to do with the online games that the skin sister plays. At least it is working now!
Mandy, Merlin and I are going to be locked in the bedroom tonight because mom has to spray for ants in the kitchen. We all sleep in there anyway but Merlin like to prowl around at night so he is not going to be very happy to have to stay put. It's only for one night so he'll get over it!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a hug for you and Norman!

I hope you are enjoying the day. Nothing much going on around here. I played with mom this morning and then growled when Merlin decided he wanted some play time too! Dad will be home this weekend but he's been gone 5 weeks so I don't think Merlin is going to forgive him anytime soon! You know how cats are! He figures that mom is the one around to play with him and feed him so he's become a Velcro kitty! At least he has gotten use to being fed with Mandy when mom gets up. The first few weeks he was waking mom up 2 hours early because he figured he needed to eat!
All the Easter stuff is up at mom's store and she enjoyed scanning it all. She said it cheered her up to see such pretty pastel colors and all the cute things they have for Easter. I think spring will be here before we know it!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's just perfect!

I hope you are having a nice day. My rain stopped and there is sunshine outside my window!!! A bit of a surprise but it is a welcomed one.
I know spring can't be too far off! It's not because of my sunshine, it's because there are Cadbury chocolate eggs on all the check stands at the store mom works at!hahahahahahahaha Yep! Only 2 short months until Easter so spring had got to be close! Right??
We spent yesterday cleaning off the balcony because the building is going to be pressure washed. They do it every year and it is a pain but at least it stays nice and clean out there. They said it had to be done by 8am and since mom doesn't get home from work until 8am we did it yesterday! So far no one has showed up and it might be tomorrow before anyone does but at least we are ready.
It's very noisy when they do it so mom puts the radio on to cover up the noise. I like listening to the radio anyway and it helps a little. I will have to do some squawking anyway because I am the BIRD! Mandy doesn't hear well anymore so I don't know if she will notice or not. If she does, she will try to get to the nearest exit and get out of here!hahahahaha Merlin, being a cat, will just roll over and go back to sleep!
I hope you have the most wonderful day!! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! The snow we had last night did not amount to much at all. The grass and the bushes are still covered but I doubt it will last the day. The rain should be back tomorrow so it will feel more like winter in the Northwest.
Mom is off tonight which is a big deal because she rarely takes a Saturday night off! We are going to do some stuff around the house today and I am hoping for popcorn and a movie tonight! Right now we are going to straighten the pantry out because the skin kids put the groceries away and you can not find anything! The stuff for my mash is in there somewhere and mom needs to get it soaking so she can cook it tonight!

I hope you are having a fantastic day! It's very cold here and we have snow flurries but nothing that is going to stick. It's going to be cold for the next few days but after seeing the East Coast and the Midwest, I can not complain! Mom will be off for 4 days so we'll just hang out in front of the fireplace!
I am sorry I didn't get around much yesterday but the internet went out. Don't know why and it's fine today. Maybe all those Comcast people were out celebrating the Seahawks win!hehehhehehe
I put a picture of Taima in my profile. He's the real Seahawk. Actually he is a Augur hawk because there isn't really a seahawk. He is very beautiful but I don't think I'd want to see him up close and birdsonal!
There is going to be a parade in Seattle tomorrow to celebrate the Seahawks victory. It's the very first time we have ever won the Super Bowl so I know most of the west side of the state is going to be there!
Mom got lots of advice on how to get that virus off the computer so she'll be working on it on her days off. We are just glad we have the laptop as a back up! Now if the internet will just stay on, we're all good!

I hope all is well and that you are having a wonderful day! I am so sorry I have not been able to get around for a while!!
I finally commandeered dad's laptop since he is on the road and doesn't need it at the moment! hahahahahaha
He is back on the road and on his way from Colorado to Phoenix so he will never know! I have been careful not to chew any of the cords coming out of it nor have I pulled any keys off! Pretty good for me! It's so much faster than the other computer!
Brother found a virus on the other computer but they can't get it deleted. It's one of those viruses that don't die easily! Mom really thinks that we need to reformat the whole thing, but the skin brother says that should be the last resort and he'll keep working on it!
In the meantime, I'll be using dad's laptop today. The down side is that the laptop has to go on the dining room table and the cat food is out there! Have you smelled that stuff? It smells like a dead fish!!!! Mom says it is a dead fish!hahahahahaha How can they eat that stuff?? Oh My Goodness! I always knew they were weird little creatures!

Since I was in your neighborhood I thought I would stop by to see how you are doing!! I hope all is well and that you are enjoying your day!
We still have big time computer problems but mom is slowly learning how to fix the silly thing. It took a long time to move all the files and the skin sister is still not done moving hers! It's all a matter of how much time we have to devote to the project each day and there hasn't been a lot lately! I can still get notes done but it keeps crashing and then I have to start all over again!!
I got that perch that I won from the BC yesterday but I'm not sure about it still! Mom put it on the coffee table so that I can look at it from my play cage. I kinda squawked and ran away from it at first so mom will give me time to get use to it before she puts it in my play cage. It sure is heavy!
I hope your day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote for you and Norman and big hugs too!

I hope your are having a great day! I've been having fun playing with mom and snacking of course. She is letting me watch a really cool monster movie called Pacific Rim. It has robots and monsters! Too Cool!
I'm sorry I haven't been around much but the computer is still not working well. We have the files moved and we are just waiting for dad to do the reformatting. He's been busy so there hasn't been any time for him to start doing it yet. I sure am getting anxious about it! It is running very slowly and we can only use Google Chrome to get online. I hope I can convince him to get it done today! After that we have to reload all the programs so that is going to take some time too! Boy! Computers sure are a pain sometimes!
Nothing really exciting going on around here. We've been working on chores around the house during mom's off hours and watching the movies that brother bought after Christmas. I have seen Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness and Man of Steel and now Pacific Rim. It's been a real action-packed weekend around here and I have really enjoyed it! I must admit that the popcorn is pretty good too!!
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's perfect!

I hope your day was just wonderful! I had a lot of fun supervising chores around here! I think maybe I had more fun than mom did but she is happy that I am happy!

I have been checking out the other animal channel sites and it looks likes the Cat channel is getting changed on January 1st instead of March 1st. Cori and Boo Boo gave me a heads up about this. There was a blog on the small animal channel so they know. but there doesn't seem to be any blogs on the Horse or Dog channel. I don't know if they are going to be left alone or if they just don't know yet.

I am so sad we are going to lose all of this but I hope we will all stay in touch, either with Facebook or email. I am grateful for every single minute I have had visiting with friends, playing baseball and all the other fun things we do here! To think! This all came into my life because mom and I were looking for pictures of birds for me to look at!!

Enjoy your evening! Sleep tight and sweet dreams!

I hope the day is going great! I apologize for not getting as many notes done as I would like to!
Some of you may already know that my dad was hurt on his job 2 years ago. He has been driving for 25+ years but since he wasn't able to pass the physical until now, he has to go to school for a month to get his license back.
His classes start at 6am. Mom works from 11pm to 7:30am. We only have one car so mom has been going early to work so that dad can drop her off and get home to get some sleep. She has been getting rides home from her fabulous co-workers but they all work until 8:30am so she is an hour late in getting home. That combined with her going in early has cut my BC time way down! I am happy to report that I am still getting all my play time and so are Mandy and Merlin.
The school is only for a month so I hope to be able to get around BC more when he is done and mom gets back to her regular schedule!
In the mean time, please know that you are in my thoughts everyday and I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's just perfect!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a nice day! It's in the high 20's here and it feels warmer! That is so sad!!!
Nothing much exciting going on around here. Mom was off last night and is off tonight too. There are lots of chores to get done if I can get her motivated to get them done. I am here to supervise at any time! I am so good at it!
I hope you enjoy your day! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!
Love you ~ Sugar

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are enjoying your day! It's a bit colder here today but clear for now. It's going to be a cold week but they have changed the low temp to 21 instead of the 11 they predicted last week. I suppose it's okay as long as it doesn't snow!
We have lots of chores to get done today so I will be right here with mom supervising and giving her suggestions! I am really good at it!
Poor Mandy hurt herself last night! Mom took her for a walk before her dinner and when they came back up, Mandy and Merlin started to do the bouncing at each other that they do when they are happy! Mandy hurt her leg and couldn't stand for a while. She is old and has arthritis so she needs to take it slower. She just doesn't remember that she is not a puppy anymore! Mom put a heating pad on her leg and went over to the market at 11pm last night to get baby aspirin. Mom had to feed her by holding her bowl up to her since she was having trouble standing. Merlin tried to stick his furry nose in the bowl so mom was trying to get him to get out of the way and I was helping by yelling at the cat!
She slept really well and this morning mom got a box and covered it up to make a table for her to eat from. She did fine and when mom came to get me this morning, Mandy was bouncing down the hall! She really needs to cut that out! She did fine on her walk this morning and mom says we just have to keep an eye on her and makes sure she takes it slowly. I can help with that since I'm the bossy one around here!
I am grabbing your awesome picture and Normans too! I am going to have the best Christmas gallery that there ever was in the entire world!Hehehehehe
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's perfect!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!
I need to apologize for not getting many notes out lately. You are very important to me and I don't want you to think I have forgotten about you or got bored with BC. That will never happen!
Mom is very busy at work because of the holidays and having split days off when you work night is like having no time off at all. She did manage to get over and see Catching Fire yesterday and loved it! I was in the play cage with a new toy and I must say that I loved it!hehehehehehe
Please know that you are in my thoughts everyday and I always count myself blessed to have such awesome friends!
We are getting some cooking and laundry done today since it is going to be a very busy week until mom gets another night off on Friday!
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's just perfect!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you don't get a big storm! That wouldn't be much fun! We have had clear skies for a few days but it's really cold!
Not much else going on around here. Mom is working all week next week so we probably won't have Thanksgiving until Friday. Brother is working on Thanksgiving too so it would just leave sister and dad here with us fids! No one seems to mind waiting until Friday. Mom works every Thanksgiving but she usually has Wednesday off. This year she is only off on the Sunday before and then works the rest of the week. I'm getting cornbread so that is all I care about!
I hope your day is great and that the storm stays away! Stay warm and cozy!!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a great day! I'm doing just fine. It's cold and windy and wet but mom put the fireplace on and I'm toasty warm!
Not much going on around here except laundry. Mom is working tonight but is scheduled off Sunday night and Monday night! It's all crazy. She doesn't know if that is going to be okay or not since it's clearance week and the lady she works with will have to do it. Mom is going to check with her tonight to see if she is okay with it. There is not a lot but mom never puts her work on to someone else unless they are okay with it.
She is scheduled the entire week of Thanksgiving! It looks like the skin brother will be working Thanksgiving too! I am a bit concerned about the dinner because I look forward to that! Mom says we will figure it all out and will probably have a Thanksgiving lunch instead. As long as I get the corn bread I will be happy!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's just wonderful!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Lots of cleaning stuff going on around here. It's our "weekend" so mom has lots of stuff to get done while she is off.
I am sitting in my clean play cage planning on how I am going to decorate it since it got cleaned up sometime over night.
Mom is going to make some snickerdoodles later so I will be looking forward to have a taste of those! I think they are just wonderful. The family always says that snickerdoodles are not their favorites but I noticed they ate them all up when mom made them last time! I am going to stash a few away for myself so I'll have them for a few days!
Enjoy your day and I hope it's just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug for you!
Love you ~ Sugar

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a great day! It's still windy and stormy here. The window are all wet because the rain is blowing sideways!hehehehehe It's fun to watch but I don't think Mandy enjoyed her walk this morning. She got dried off when mom brought her in but she still looks a bit damp to me! I'm staying in! I have my feathers looking so pretty and I certainly don't want them messed up!
Yesterday turned out to be a very busy day! Mom was gone over 4 hours to various stores. She brought back lots of food and soaps and such. I got some lovely frozen berries to go in my oatmeal so I suppose I forgive her for being gone so long.
She spent hours last night in her bathroom scrapping off the old caulk in her shower after I went to bed!! She cleaned the whole thing and then found out she didn't have enough caulk to finish the job! She went over to the hardware store as soon as it opened this morning and got the caulk! She has re-caulked the entire thing and it looks perfect! Now no one can use it for 36 hours! She and dad will have to use the shower in the kids room for now.
Right now we are washing my cage covers and getting things ready for mom to start her workweek. It seems strange to have her start her week on the day our weekend usually starts! It's only during the holidays so I suppose I can live with it!
You enjoy your day and I do hope it's perfect!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you had a really great day. Mom worked last night so we got a few things done this morning and then she took a nap. It's about dinner time so she'll be going to make dinner soon. I just had a nice bowl of veggies so I'm set.
We have been watching a DVD set from the library called The Celts. I'm not finding it too interesting since nothing is blowing up!

We didn't have anyone come trick or treat last night. It's been that way for years. I think it's because we live in this huge complex and there are only a few houses across the street. The mall and the fairgounds have big parties so I think most of the kids go there. One of mom's friends had 200 kids!!

Now that Halloween is over at mom's store, Christmas is in full swing. The trees are out and decorated and the rest of the stuff was put out last night. Mom hasn't has a chance to check everything out yet but she did say they had some nice dinnerware. There is a whole section of Rudolf décor!

I want to thank everybird for the honor given the Calendar Page today. I appreciate is so very much and I am happy to be able to provide this small service to my friends!
Enjoy the evening!
