It's a good day for changin' to 11 yarrs old, me hearties! For comin' by to say "Happy Hatchday" I have some limericks that I've brought back from every corner of the world. May they bring a smile to yer beak today!! Thanky fer comin' by me page!

Some pirates have parrots for pets,
Some monkeys, others frisky fer-rets!
But as for me crew,
Only an elephant will do . . .
He's huge but he never forgets!

When the crocodile called on James Hook,
The pirate those waters forsook.
With the croc down a peg
A white whale ate his leg.
And he said, “Why, I’m in the wrong book!”

A Captain O'Leary's old parrot
Was a foul mouthed bugger, I swear it,
washed his mouth out with soap
tied him up with a rope
Nothing worked, so we just grin and bear it!

There once was a sailor named Pete
Who would grin both in ease and defeat
It was somewhat beguiling
That he never stopped smiling
Even when his last rites were complete!

A Pirate's old parrot called Paul
got a gift - an inflatable doll;
when he gave it a kiss
it just gave him a hiss
and then whistled and flew down the hall

Here's to all ye good parronts out there! Lift ye tankards, lads & lasses, it's time to empty yer good glasses! Arrr...

  I do ! I do love your avatar !
Mom should be very proud of it ! Tuesday, mom's humpday - and more snow showers on the way - just enough to be a pain in the tailfeathers ! Everytime she goes out or gets ready to come home she has to clean off the car ! An inch or so yesterday, last night, again this afternoon and overnight - winter weather warning till noon tomorrow, but no more than 5-8 inches total over the three days ! sheeesh !

Daddy met with the accountant yesterday and he says he'll be finished by the end of the week so mom can start spending the money on me ! There are a few little things she needs for the house (our towels are becoming threadbare !), but mostly it'll be mine :)

Have a wonderful Tuesday and good luck with the wasps ! love to all my dear friends - Cookie

  Hi Sam
I don't know how you do it but the avatar is super cute! My mom has no talent for those things!
You need to ask Kaji how to get rid of the ads on the BC, Kaji's mom has helped so many of us and it runs better now.
What is with that PuppyMonkeyBaby thing???? That was scary and I don't even know what the ad was ... just stare at that thing!!!!
We are still cold, wet and windy ... not a good first winter for us down here. My aunt and uncle will be here on the 18th to enjoy the sun and warm temps ... and swim in our pool. They want to get away from the snow.
Oh no ... wasps!!! Those evil things and they have a nasty sting!!! Keep that gas mask on and be prepared with your sword to avenge your mom's bite! Or, you and mom could come here!
Another sunny day of 67 for us. At least we don't have snow or rain! Hope it gets better every day.
Happy Chinese New Year!
Hugs
Chyna

  Hi Sam,
Sorry my blog is late, mom was tired when she came home from work and took a birdie nap.

I think the older hoomans get the more sleep they need. Shish!!

Anywho, today we will learn some words that if you come to Hawaii you will definitely need to know.

For example the restrooms have hydro glyphics and only says Kane (Ka ne) male or Wahine (wa-hee-nay) female. That's where a lot of tourists shake their heads trying to figure out which is which.

Also if you hear the word pupule (pooh-poo-lay) that means crazy; insane. Most common use is crazy.

Here's a nice phrase called Pehea 'oe? (Pay-hay-ya oy) (oy as in toy) meaning how are you?

A lot of us has to do this every week or get the trash out. 'Opala (oh-pa-la). Yes every week we hafta take the 'Opala out. :)

Here's a good one I think everyone will like. 'Ono (oh-no) meaning delicious, tasty. Most common use delicious, as in taste of food. :)

This one everyone had some of. It's called 'ohana (oh-ha-na) or family.

This one refers to my Angel frother Pookie. He was very niele (née-eh-lay) meaning curious, inquisitive, a busy body or nosy person or bird. Hehehe

This one we all say to each other. Malama pono (ma-la-ma po-no) meaning be careful, take care , or to care for. Most common use: Take care. :)

Hope you all have a fun time pronunciating Hawaiian phrases or words.

Soon everyone will be speaking Hawaiian.

Malama pono! :)

A Hui ho (ah who-ee ho) until we meet again or see you later.

Sending you all warm wing hugs and beaky kisses along with a vote.

  Hello Sam~
I hope the day was great! Mom had to take McKenzie to the vet this morning and it took longer than she thought it would. McKenzie got to see Dr. Jennifer who is my vet! Lucky girl!
McKenzie still has to take the mange medicine for another month even though the mites are dead. She got her last shot also. Mom had planned on taking her to Petco after the vet visit but the spots where they did the scrapings to check the mange was bleeding so mom didn't want to take her around other pets and people. She is not contagious but the spots she has makes people nervous. We have to wait for her obedience classes because of that and she can not be spayed until it's cleared up since anesthesia can cause stress and put us back to the beginning with the mange! Since she is now on her 3rd month of meds, we don't want to go backwards!
This is moms last night of vacation! Bummer!! We had a nice time but sure do wish it could have lasted longer!
The avatar is fabulous! Your mom did a great job.
We didn't watch the super bowl but looked at the commercial list on the internet. Doesn't look like there was much to be excited by it. A lot of people felt that way about the Super bowl itself!
I hope your evening is perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

Hey Sam!
Didn't check the type of weather you've had--we were warmish and are going cold again. Still not much by way of snow. Standing water today, single digits in the future, just no snow.
I let mom play catch with me twice today. I even threw the ball back to her! She lays on the floor and rolls the ball to me. I either push the ball back with my beak or attempt to pick it up and throw it to her. It is really just for her--I don't like the ball.

  Hi Sammy
That was a great blog, and we're so happy to hear from you it could be full of typos, grammatical errors, and anything else you could think of, and we'd still be thrilled to hear from you. We are so proud of you for caving and flying to that cage. You will see, Sam, that once you get used to it, your world will get bigger and bigger! Mom was pretty smart to say no until you went to her! What a good strategy.
Happy Chinese New Year Everybirdie! It's the Year of the Monkey, I wonder if that gives us all a chance to act like monkeys all year long? Congratulations to the Broncos, too. We didn't watch the game, but Lady Gaga did one great job with the National Anthem, and Beyonce did a fine halftime show. We tuned in to that to see Santana play a little.
Mom finished the Pterosaur book, watched the videos from the AMNH website, watched the Puppy Bowl, and even turned on the Fish Bowl for a few minutes.
Mom cleaned the mammal nursery today, with 3 squirrels and 2 possums, all adults. None of them was ready to go outside yet, though, they each need some extra care. The little flying squirrel has a stash of around 2 pounds of nuts that she's keeping in a pillowcase in her cage. Everyone is letting her keep them. We think when she gets released, she'll have a stash to start with in the spring.
Someone brought in a fennec fox! These guys are desert foxes who live in the Sahara. He said he found it on his back porch, didn't know what it was, and brought it to us. The poor little thing is emaciated and dehydrated, as well as blind in one eye. They are keeping him in the treatment room for now and trying to bulk him up a little. If he survives, we think he'll be going to the zoo or to some kind of sanctuary. It makes mom so angry when people take wild animals and try to make them pets. There are enough dogs, cats, and other animals who make good pets already.
It's supposed to snow here tonight through Wednesday, but we'll see what happens. Those guys are wrong probably more than they are right. I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Peppino

  OH no ! Sam - not wasps !
I agree with aunt Robin - it's time to do something about them buggers !! Can't have them sneaking into the house ! Mom ended up in the er when she was about 12 from a wasp sting - after an hour, her arm looked like a baseball bat ! It was so swollen she couldn't bend at the elbow ! ! ! YIKES ! Take care of that nest !

Happy Monday ! Snow coming in - not much luckily - 5-8 between today and Wednesday, mostly in the form of snow showers. It's just not all at once, so it should be easy to take care of and probably means no time off for mom ! Last night me and mom watched PuppyBowl while daddy had the tv on in the other room - I tried my wing at tossing a feetball off the table to mom and did pretty darn well !

Daddy is home today so I'll have lots of out of cage time. He has an appointment with the accountant to get the taxes done. I hope there's enough of a refund for lots of toys and treats !

Have a great Monday :) love Cookie

  Hey Sam,
I hear ya about the yelling part, we used to have sole neighbors that would play loud music or the tv was blaring that mom had to sleep with ear plugs.

I'm so glad that my daddy doesn't watch sports, well with the eggception of the occasional boxing. That's when mom goes to her room and watch Designing Women. She has all 6 seasons. The likes the Southern Belles. :). She can also do a pretty good southern accent herself.

But over here they're not too keen on mom talking like that. Oh well to each his own.

Well hope your house got nice and quiet after the game. :)

Hugs,

Laka Girl

Just a quick note tonight, mom is watching the Superbowl game. She would like to see the Broncos win, would like to see Peyton Manning go out on top!

Change of plans, mom & Liv aren't starting the crystals until Tuesday. Sis called this morning, Liv has pink eye, she's the last one in her family to get it! Mom wants to wait a couple days because her eye is swollen shut! I sure hope mom doesn't get it!

I hope your day was a good one!

I hope you are having a great day! We are having a little Puppy Bowl party. Don't really care about the Super Bowl. We just hope it's a fun game and that everyone has a great time.
Mom has been filing the papers we sorted out this week. That is one big job done. Now she just has to make sure everyone keeps up with filing! There is a big box of papers for dad to go through when he gets home. I'm sure he will just love doing it!
Mom has 2 more nights so we are going to enjoy them! Jennifer is home and she is watching Agents of Shield. We have seen them but she hasn't. I don't mind seeing them again.
I hope you have a great day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hey Sam!
Today I want to talk about where my mom is from. She grew up in a little town called Hilo pronounced (hee lo). The name of Hilo is an ancient one, its origins lost in the mists of time. One of the widely accepted origins is that Hilo was named for a famous Polynesian navigator, Hiro, perhaps in honor of his great skill in bringing his people to this rich and fertile place.

The first night of the lunar month, just following the new moon, is known as Hilo. The think crescent moon is on the eastern horizon as the sun rises, its shape reflected in the curve of Hilo Bay's crescent shaped black sand beach.

No story of Hilo is complete without mention of the three names for Hilo. Hilo-one refers to the part of Hilo fronting the black sand beach, where shoreline activities like fishing and canoe launching took place. Hilo-Hanakahi, the fertile food-producing land south of Hilo Bay was named for a beloved chief who ruled here during a time of peace. The formidable cliffs that run north from the mouth of the Wailuku River are known as Hilo-pali-ku. Hilo was considered waiwai, or wealthy, due to its abundance of fresh water.

A charming folk tale has long been told linking Hilo to King Kamehameha, a great warrior, whose chief ambition, which he lived to realize, was to become the ruler of all the Hawaiian Islands. Naturally, he had numerous enemies, and he never remained long in one place for fear that the some of them might learn about his whereabouts and attack him.

Okay now for some fun stuff. Today is Sunday and it is spelled Lapule pronounced (la-poo-lay) in Hawaiian. The month is February and it is spelled 'Ianuali pronounced (yah-new-ah-lee) in Hawaiian. Have you got it? :)

Just say it slow and it will come, soon you all will be eggsperts in speaking Hawaiian.

Tomorrrow is spelled i ka la 'apopo pronounced (ee kah lah ah-poh-poh) in Hawaiian.

We shall finish or pau/(pow) in Hawaiian with good afternoon or aloha awakea (ah-low-hah ah-vah-kay-ah)or (midday).

Mahalo a Nui Loa (ma-hah-low ah noo-ee low-ah) or Thank you very much for your love and support.

Here's a vote for you and hope you all have a great Lapule afternoon! :)

Love,

  Hi Sammy
Mom likes seeing deer on other people's property, haha. She really does like them, but they are overpopulated here, and are getting bolder about coming close to houses. That's not good.
Hey, Willie finally got it and made up a limerick for you, even though it's late. Here goes:
There was an old pirate from Leeds
Who took stock of his terrible deeds
He decided instead
to plant a sweet bed
of roses, but only grew weeds.
I know, not real great, but mom is getting stupid in her old age, haha.
We now have images of pterosaurs on all of our pages. Mom tried to photograph the book on Pterosaurs, but it's shiny and that didn't work well. We got some images from the AMNH website to show everyone, and if you want to look it up for yourselves, this page shows a lot of what's in the exhibit and the book. We're just teasing you with a few images. You can go to AMNH.org/pterosaurs and see for yourself lots of what's on display. There have been about 150 different species of pterosaur fossils found, ranging in size from ones that will fit in your hand to Quetzlcoatlus northropi, which has a wing span about the length of a city bus and weighed between 180-250 kilograms! That's 550 lbs. at its heaviest. He stood about the height of a giraffe.
You might be able to access some of the short movies that are being shown, too. One big thing to remember is that they are NOT dinosaurs. They, like crocodiles and dinosaurs, all belong to the archosaur family, but they are cousins, at best. One of the things mom loved seeing is that they all had a fine hairy coating, probably to keep them warm.
I hope everyone wasn't bored by that, mom is finding them very interesting. Don't forget to vote in the milonga contest today and every day. I hope you are having a sunny day today. We are, and the temps are already in the 40s, but we know the cold is coming back soon. Make sure you get lots of attention today! Lots of cuddles and scritches should be coming your way.

Happy Sunday ! Day three of a lovely weekend ! After what happened Friday, mom decided to check the weather each morning - now it looks like (according to the local weather channel) snow again Monday into Tuesday . . . but WeatherChannel says only 1-3 inches on Tuesday. So she still doesn't know !

Sadly, I will be in lock-up for a while today since mom and dad have some grocery shopping to do and a trip to WildBirds Unlimited for seed . . . hopefully, they'll be home early ! After all tonight's the game ! Daddy doesn't care much about either team, but there'll be good treats and snacks !

I keep forgetting to ask . . . how are the wedding plans coming ? Have a lovely Sunday full of love :) Cookie

  Hi Sam!
Tonight I want to talk about Madame Pele, the volcano Goddess of Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Legend has it that the lava flow will never come down to the Hilo side or the Kona side as long as the "Hawaiians" are in check. So to speak.

That's why there are Hula Halaus that have ceremonies at the volcano to leave offerings of food and other stuff but no hooman sacrifices. Which is good. :)

There are many legends at the volcano observatory that have written testimony from hundreds of tourists that have taken a trinket from the land and have fallen into lots of bad luck.

Be it a rock or black sand or something minute, everything from the Aina or land has to stay here. Once taken off the island the person or persons will have terrible terrible bad luck.

Many of them had since sent those things taken sent back to the island ASAP.

There are warning signs about taking anything off the island. All the written testimony proves that the legend is true.

Tourist beware, or prepare to have terrible bad luck. Indeed the Madame Pele spirit of the "Aina" or land is so true and strong.

That's like Mr. Glen Grants stories in his book "Chicken Skin" tells all and then some it's very true.

Happy weekend everyone and a vote for you too.

Love & Aloha from Hawaii. :)

I hope the day was great! I took a shower today and it felt good. I had been feeding McKenzie some of my treats and then decided that we both needed to get cleaned up! She started barking at me when I dumped the water on her so I know she really enjoyed it! She got toweled off and I just air dried!
Mom took Jennifer down to visit her dad this morning so I got some quiet time! I got another piece of my hatchday cake after lunch. It was lovely.
The rest of the day was spent chasing puppy and trying to get chores done. We are now going to relax and get my notes done and perhaps watch a movie. It is very rare for mom to have a Saturday night off so we are going to make the most of it!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!
You are going to have to get an Ad Blocker program to keep the ads off your BC pages. There are free ones all over. We had one to begin with so I never saw the ads but a lot of other birds did.
Just love your picture. The old fashion valentines are so cool. We just love them too!

I want to give a very big thank you to SweetPepper & her sweet mom for making my awesome Valentine's Milonga pic! Thank you sooooo much!!!

Mom left for 1 1/2 hrs today to get some supplies for Livi's science fair project. Mom is going to her house tomorrow morning to start working on sugar crystals. Livi is in a girls' basketball league so mom has to work around her practice schedule. I'm sure not going to like being in lockdown every time she leaves!

Your mom is so sweet and taking Joel out was fun for her, I bet. She loves those children almost as much as she loves you, Sam! Maybe more, but I'd hate to say that. Wow, Tiffany is working at the Y? That's weird but hope it works out for her and she can keep the job. Haha, Criminal minds for those valentines is funny, but true, I fear.
We finally got some pics posted of the new chair: the first pic in the gallery is a close up of the pattern, but doesn't show the colors well, so the second one is the colors. The pillow on there is one mom cross stitched a few years ago. The third pic is mom's left hand, new polish.
Mom was at the museum today doing another spotlight of Archaeopteryx for a couple of hours. It was much more relaxed than last week, though. She only saw about 90 people. It's always fun to do those spotlights, because there are lots of interesting questions and comments.
The weather today is in the mid 40s, it's really sunny and pretty, too. We think that's not going to last long, though we can't complain about winter this year. It's been really mild.
Now that mom is home, she's ours, all ours, for the rest of the day! We hope you will all go to the milonga page and vote every day for each category. If you don't have the page number, go to my aviary and hit the biggest avatar, the pink and purple one.

  that must have been awesome
seeing that herd of dear (of course, I've heard of deer giggles Cookie !)

Remember yesterday I told you no snow in the near future ? Well, listen to this ! Mom finished my blogs yesterday morning and peeked out the window - there were a few flurries, as predicted, so she got ready to get in the shower. By the time she got out the sky was white ! Snow ! Fast and furious ! The phone rang . . . 2 hour delay. So mom made blueberry scones for me and dad . . . it was still snowing like crazy when the phone rang again - SNOW DAY ! Three day weekend ! We had a great lazy day . . . skritches, fetch and television - I even got one of the blueberries :)

Today is heading up to the mid to upper 30's so lots of it should melt. Another shot of it on Tuesday - mom's been dvr'ing reruns of the JOHNNY CARSON show to see in the morning (since she can't stay awake to watch them at night like when she was a kid) Maybe she needs to watch the WeatherChannel instead ! !

Have a great day and don't forget, today is the last day to try your wing at the love songs over at NAME THAT TUNE on page 231616 !

Love to you :) Cookie

  Hi Sam,
Sorry I didn't get my blog out today as mom had an interview lunch time and they made her wait for a few minutes then told her to come back in 15 minutes. Plus mom had to feed the meter but forgot her phone at work so she drove a block and then came back. She had to kinda walk far so when she came home she took a long birdie nap.

She didn't get up till 6 pm, what a snoozer I tell ya!

So tonight I'm gonna talk about Iolani Palace that's in town.

It's full of antiques and portraits of the past king and queens and other Hawaiian descendants also.

Mom took a ghost walking tour one night long time ago and one stop was at the palace and the tour guide was a renound ghost guy.

At one end where the princess was being held he said you could smell her perfume blowing in the breeze. And everyone on the tour could smell it and got chicken skin. Down the street was an old building that was an old morgue back in the day and that's why people in that building has eggsperienced things moving or missing.

The spirits are alive and moving there. Mom never worked in that building, well not since she heard about that.

The ghost tour ended up in the graveyard in town which was appropriate being a ghost tour an all.

Mom enjoyed it and so did her friends.

In my gallery you can see the palace and also other pictures.

Now you know if you ever go by the palace on the east side corner, try and see if you can smell the princess perfume. You'll be amazed, mom was. :)

That's all for tonight as my typist is getting sleepy.

More tomorrow and I thank you for your votes and support.

Here's a vote for you also.

That sure is a scary message! Wow, I sure wouldn't want to send or receive that Valentine. I like the cute ones, like the ones mom used to buy to give to her classes. They looked a lot like yours. Mom's trick was always to find ones with cute little animals on them, because the ones with people were invariably white. Towards the end of her teaching career, though, she was able to find a few with black kids on them.
We just got our electric meter replaced. The guy told mom our power would be out for 10 seconds, so mom shut down the computer and waited. He just drove away, and the power never went off. Mom is going to have to see if the new meter is out there.
We had a few snow flurries this morning, but it's all clear and sunny now. It's supposed to warm into the mid 40s tomorrow, too, but today's high is only around 38. It's been a mild winter so far.
This morning mom and Asmita, another volunteer, had the Runs to clean. That is an area where some of the education animals live, and there are some rehab patients in there too. The education animals in there are the turkey vultures, Sid, Vince, and Tony, and the 5 turtles. There are also some snapping turtles in there, a beautiful male mallard, a porcupine, and a broad winged hawk. It's always an interesting place to clean, because you never know who's going to be in there.
Mom is going out to dinner tonight with her sister, but she's ours for the rest of the day. We put some of our latest reads on the library page for anyone who's interested. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Sam
Hope you had a very Happy Hatchday Wednesday! We're so sorry we missed it. Arggh...you're the finest pirate we know! We think mom should walk the plank, no blindfold, for causing us to miss your party! Almonds all around!

Hugs,

  Hi Sam.
It's Popeye. Thanks for the cake. I'll share it with my flock.
Dad had an early appointment at the wound center yesterday so we were unable to blog with all of you. Sorry about that. Dad's leg continues to improve. Dad is having only a small amount of pain now. In fact, if he's busy with stuff he forgets all about it.
Mom and dad went to the movies yesterday and saw "The Good Dinosaur". What a wonderful movie! The animation was incredible and the story line was beautiful. Even dad got a little misty eyed. After the movie they went to Costco to pick up some stuff for dinner and some already cooked and pealed eggs. Mom and dad are making deviled eggs to take to mom's brother's house for a Super Bowl Sunday BBQ.
Today will be clear, with a high of 75 and a low of 51. No more rain in sight for at least another week.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  you and Miranda look darling in the Valentine !
and I'm happy you enjoyed your limericks ! Mom's been writing them since the 4th grade when she was so excited the local newspaper printed one of hers ! Now she writes them with her students every year too !

It's Friday ! That means it's almost the weekend :) Even better ? Mom has just next week and then it's mid-winter break - a whole week off ! She enjoys this one lots cause there's nothing much to do but relax and play (with me of course !)

School spirit day so mom has to find her gold sweater this morning (school colors are blue and gold) . . . the kids have just a half day and then it's the faculty meeting. Hopefully there isn't too much on the agenda and she'll be home early !

The weather is still mild - a little chillier and the weather guessers are talking a dusting for Tuesday - but nothing big ! Don't mind old man winter so much like this !

Don't forget to try your wing at LOVE SONGS over at NAME THAT TUNE on page 231616 ! ! ! Thanks again for inviting me to your celebration :) love to you and your dear mom :) Cookie

  Hi Sam 12,600
WOW, we did out Taxes 2 weeks ago, and when the old guy checked the bank web site, the cash was there. Now that's what I call fast. Get them done early, and get it back fast. Can' be any better than that.

  Hi Sam
So happy that you enjoyed your pirate hatchday. It sure was a fun party.
Oh yeah, watch out for cats ... they can do so much harm to a birdie. My skinsis has a Norwegian Forrest Cat ... they have a ton of fur and between their toes too ... hairy beast I say!
When is the wedding? My skinsis is getting married on June 24th. The parronts will be flying out west (UT) for that. Hard to help from so far away.
A lot of us no longer have the BC ad problems because we went to Kaji's mom aunt DJ and she fixed the problem :) Give her an email and I know she will help you. It doesn't solve all BC problems but helps a lot!!!
We had another sunny day of 83. But tonight, the rain came ... at least everything got watered. It will be getting cooler again down to the 60's. Hope we get another warm up soon.
Hugs

HI SAMIAM AND MOM ROBIN. SO GLAD THAT YOU HAD A FUN DAY ON YORU HATCHDAY. LOVED HELPING YOU CELEBRATE.

NOW AS FOR THAT DRAGGING DOWN THING? WELL YES MOM HAD TROUBLE WITH IT TOO. SHE HAD TO SCROLL ALMOST TO THE TOP OF THE PAGE SO THAT IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.

MOM HAS NO TROUBLES WITH ADS NOW AS AUNT DJ, KAJI'S MOM, HELPED HER UPLOAD THIS AD BLOCKER. IT WORKS, NO MORE ADS TO DEAL WITH ON THE BC. STILL HAVE THE USUAL ISSUES WITH THE BC BUT NO ADS. MAYBE YOU SHOULD BLOG KAJI AND ASK HIS MOM ABOUT THE AD BLOCKER. THERE IS A WAY SHE CAN CONNECT TO YOUR COMPUTER AND GET IT INSTALLED FOR YOU. IT SURE SAVED A LOT OF HEADACHES FOR MOM.

HOPE YOU ARE GETTING EXCITED ABOUT THE SUPERBOWL ON SUNDAY. WE ARE CHEERING FOR PEYTON MANNING AND THE BRONCOS.

HAVE A GREAT TGIF

  Hi Sam
Mom went over to see her granddaughter Olivia for 3 hrs to discuss her science fair project. Mom had the nerve to put me in lockdown! Livi is so excited to be growing crystals for her project! Mom showed her different crystals on websites. They are going to do at least 10-12 different crystals. Mom said that I don't get to help at all...how rude! She said that boiling water and birdies don't mix! For the crystals that will be made using chemicals will be done over at Livi's house...NEVER any chemicals used around me! Mom is going supply shopping tomorrow and Livi & she will start working on crystals over the weekend. The science fair is on March 7th, so hopefully they will get a lot made by then!

Your pirate party was a blast! I hope you enjoyed your special day sweetie!

I hope your day was a good one!
Love & a vote

  Hi Sam!
Well, so far we've gone to the north shore of Oahu and seen the big 24 foot waves and boy was it windy! :)

Today we are going to Hanauma Bay (pronounced Hanau-ma). It's a nice cove that's a fish and aquatic sanctuary. It used to be free but now everyone has to pay to go in.

Mom has passed by and from the hill looking down the water is prestine blue and clear. Before you could feed the fishes and they sold frozen peas for you to feed the fishes. Mom heard that all the fishes are tame since they are fed regularly. They come up and rub your legs as you are in the water. Never heard of anyone getting bitten by them tame fish. You never know one might just get a little too greedy and take a chunk of flesh to see if it tastes good.

Anywho, maybe when one of the BC parronts come down to Hawaii, mom will actually have a reason to go there and feed the fishies.

The picture of Hanauma Bay is in my gallery thanks to Cookie's mom, Momma Mary. :)

Love and warm hugs to ya'll in the cold states.

Also a vote for you.

Aloha a Hui ho! Till. Tomorrow! :)

  Hi Sam,

How are you doing today? It's Oz. I had such an amazing time partying with you yesterday on the ship! Can't wait til our Pool opens in the Summer and my Pool Parties start!

Mom's not having a great day with her back, butt and legs! It's her stupid Spinal Stenosis but she said the not being able to sleep is the worse part! She finally falls asleep & if she wakes up, forget about sleeping! Anyway, she's taking her meds, hot showers & using her Biofreeze. Everything helps to take the edge off. Mom can't get another shot til the middle or end of March. That's not so bad! She feels fortunate that she's as well as she is. Mom knows there are so many more people that are worse off then her (like your Mom) & she's grateful. We all did get showers and our cages are nice & clean! Hope You and your Mom are having a good day! Here's a vote for you, Handsome. Bye for now.

Love & Winghugs,
Oz (Your Pink Friend)

  Hi Sammy
Hey, you do limericks too! That was a good one.
Mom made that joke about 20 minute lunch because for many years at school, that's all the time teachers got for lunch. Mom's lunch yesterday was longer than 20 minutes, they spent over 2 hours talking and looking at old and new pictures. Mom had a great time.
I haven't even looked at the new chair yet. Falco keeps going over there and getting chased off, though.
This morning mom had a tour with 4 year old kids again. They were there to learn about animals, and their chaperons insisted on the full hour tour! By the end of 45 minutes, mom's group and all the others she could see were getting restless, wandering off, talking to each other, etc, but mom, like the other docents, kept on going for the hour. Mom also found out that she can't take pics in the Pterosaur exhibit. She suspected as much, because the usual rule in the museum is that what belongs to them can be photographed, but not what doesn't. There is a nice book that mom will buy which goes along with the exhibit. Maybe we'll be able to share pics from there.
Now that she's home, mom is ours for the rest of the day. She got a load of laundry done the other day, so maybe today she'll get sheets and towels done, too. You never know...
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Don't forget to submit your pics for the Valentine contest on the Milonga page. Voting starts tomorrow! Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Sam
I'm back to chat ... enjoyed the day with you ... what a greyt party!
I'm not good at this but here goes ...

Sam was a pirate who roamed the land
He was so talented he had his own band
But he loved sailing the seas
He went everywhere including the keys
But enjoyed drinking rum with friends on the sand.

Hope your day was super greyt!
Hatchday Hugs from your girl singer
