Daddy (and Mom) took us home from the pet store (he was a falconer and had red tail hawks previously, but we smaller birds are easier...) If anyone is interested in becoming a falconer, you need to find a currently licensed falconer to sponsor and train you. You have to take and pass a test. You have to pay for a license. You need to have all the equipment to keep a bird - a mews (the hawkhouse), a travel box, a falconer's glove, jesses for the bird, hoods, food, etc. and everything is inspected by fish and game. Then when you have all the training and license you build a trap and catch a wild (first year) red-tail hawk, but during the trapping season. All novices start with a red-tail and you have to train it and eventually you take it hunting. Whew! Dad was the falconer, but Mom would tag along. They did that for a few years, but now they have us, the cockatiels!

Sunday Dad did not see Magic Mike XXL, they decided instead to see "SPY" with Melissa McCarthy. It was fun. They laughed and laughed. Dad is glad they went to see that one.

Opressively muggy here. All the muggies in town come up to our apartment and stay here - even after the neighborhood has cooled down - it's still tropical here. Dad doesn't like heat and humidity - he does better in cooler weather.

  hey guys !
The summer has barely started and we're in a lousy weather pattern ! It seems like we have scattered nice days - like yesterday. The next three days are sticky icky with on again, off again thunderboomers and rain. The tomatoes will like it - and mom has her stack of books ready . . . as long as the power stays on, even I'm OK with the idea !

That's the news here - but, you know what they say - no news is good news ! How's things at your perch ? Have a great day - love Cookie

  Hi Pearl & Silver
All the towns up here set the fireworks off over the lakes. One year, one town had people get hurt. They were sitting too close to where they were set off. Now, they make them sit back far enough.
Oh, we are only 1/2 hour from groceries.
Tonight, we accepted a bid on our house, the fun begins.
We had a hot and humid day here. At 8pm it's 84 and the rain will be here soon. Funny thing, it's warmer here than where we will be living in FL! We have summer but, for how long??? Mom wants to go to the beach but has to take her new car back to the dealer. I will be home resting.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Mom called Eversource this morning and got a recording,they're going to send her out the qualifications for the hardship cases and the low income for the seniors.Mom is hoping that Nana will qualify.
Those laser shows sound like they would be fun.Years ago Mom went to a Neil Diamond concert and he had these beautiful laser shows of Jonathan Livingstone Seagull and it was accompanied by the music from the movie.Such beautiful colors and artwork.
This morning was another bright sunny and warm day here,the highs for the day will be 81 the lows will be 64. Its 82 right now in The Mills.Mom got us all up,fed and cleaned our cages,swept the floor and then sterilized our water bottles,vacuumed the house,scrubbed two bathrooms and beat out all the area rugs and put them on the deck rails to get the air.Then Mom worked on getting some tomato and zucchini seeds in a planter to finally start her tomatoes and zucchini as it looks like she won't be having a garden this year.Not enough time,the weather hasn't been cooperative,so she's hoping these plants come up and she'll have some deck veggies.Mom is hoping to get us all outside but at almost 3:00pm its a bit hot out there,not that we're complaining about it,which we won't from the long winter we just came out of.Mom took the rest of the big flag cake skin bro brought for her birthday and put that in a smaller container as she really needs the room in her fridge.She'll take some of that to Nana on Wednesday so she can have some as she missed coming to the BBQ yesterday.There's nothing exciting going on today,its a good old boring day here and we love those days as long as Mom's home with us its a perfect day!
Mom finally took us all out on the deck for some sun and showers.We got to stay out there and join Mom and dad for dinner tonight also.Candida was being bad tonight and beating on poor Dixie and my dad was getting mad at her for doing that.He wanted Mom to bring her in the house so she could cry all by herself but Mom took Dixie out of the cage and let him sit on her lap and he got rubs and massages for quite a long time.Dixie really loved that. Dad moved the bird bath to the other side of the yard because the rhododendron bushes were growing all into it.The birds didn't take long to find it.
You wouldn't believe that all Mom had leftover from the BBQ were just two pork chops and a sausage,skin sis took the rest of it home with her!
The three tiels all open their wings wide open for a big group tiel wing hug and hold on tight savoring their shared love and friendship.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm tiel hugs and soft tiel kisses and a vote!Loving you always and forever,Peepers

  Hi Pearl and Silver
In the 30k order its Kiddo, Cookie and then me so far. Yes the 10k seems to be the hardest to achieve for some reason.
It is Chi chi jungle talk toy that I toss out but hers was the smaller blue one and her same button doesnt work either.
Mom has the ribbing on the hat knitted and has started the pink and that worked out ok on joining so just working on it a little at a time.
Today was suppose to rain but it missed us here so I got a bath and then out for a sun bath . It was very humid and warm but a bit cloudy. When I go outside for my sun bath Miss Robin comes to visit with me. She gets worms and sometimes puts them on the sidewalk. That is very nice of her but I sure don’t want to eat worms with her. Mom teases and says she thinks Miss Robin is smitten on me. I have Suzi for my girl and that is all I need cause she is one great gal. I guess Miss Robin has babies in the big tree in the yard and maybe she feels a bit scared of me out there so close. “A friend is like a four leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have.” Left a vote for you.

  Hello Pearl & Silver
Paintings are very nice to look at.Wouldnt be so bad to do the painting if you could do it somewhere else so one whouldnt have to worry about the mess and the clean up and not to mention the smell.The humidity has been just terrible today but its supposed to start breaking up as this cool front moves in.Unfortunately by the weekend we will be pretty warm again with highs at 90 and lows in the 70's hope they are wrong about that.Hope your week is off to a good start.

I hope that yucky rash is going away, even if it will take 2 rounds of meds.
Mom has most of the cabinets done now, just 3 more to go. She's waiting until Wed. when her cleaning woman comes with some sturdy boxes for the dishes, pots and pans, and some canned goods. They can finish the job together.
Today mom was in the RVS room, which is much more sparsely populated than it was last week! They have moved a bunch of raccoons and skunks outside to finish growing up. That meant a huge disinfection procedure today, though, cages, floors, walls, carriers, and anything else in there. There are still about 10 raccoons and 10 skunks in there, too, so mom disinfected their cages as well. It was raining when she got home, so she decided to shower and get online. Of course, now the sun is out! She won't go to the pool, though, as she has showered and washed her hair, and doesn't want to repeat the shampoo today.
I hope you are getting some great weather, cuddles, and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

I'd say your mom is GOOD at knitting!
My mom says she is 'adequate' at several things.
'Cause I'm a hen, and prone to overeating, EVERYTHING gets counted, *sigh* I was close to having fatty liver disease, and mom is not wanting that to happen.

  Hey Buddy's
I'm still trying to avoid the bucket !!! good thing you are not KFC's by now...Heehee!!!

Sugar tells the second part of her story...Quill work woman...

The leader of the Buffalo Nation calls Quill work Woman and her Four brothers out !!!
The four brothers step out of their lodge with Quill Work Woman standing behind them...

The leader of the buffalo Nation says I have been watching your sister and I love her. I want to marry her and make her part of my buffalo Nation... May I please marry her my two legged brothers ???

Hulk says no you cant marry our sister, Cookie say's she belongs to the Northern Cheyenne Nation,Tweety say's she doesn't want to marry you and Peppi says please go away now.

The Leader of the buffalo nation is mad !!! He says how dare you speak to me that way !!!
I will be back in the Spring time and ask her again...
The buffalo runs off angry...

After the winter has passed and Spring comes in Quill Work Woman and her four brothers pack their belongings and plan to head back home to the Northern Cheyenne Nation...

As they are packing they hear the loud rumbling of buffalo hooves coming towards them.
The leader of the buffalo Nation calls out to Quill Woman and her four brothers...
He say's I'm hear once again to ask for your sisters hand in marriage my two legged brothers...
Cookie says no you can't marry our sister !!!

The Buffalo nation leader say's I'll be back to stomp you down into the earth and kill all of you.

Quill Work woman goes into the lodge and cuts a hole in the back of their lodge...
Suddenly they can hear thousands of Buffalo running towards them.
They all climb out of the hole in their lodge and Peppi grabs his sacred bow and arrow as he climbs out.
Soon as they get out of their lodge the buffalo stampede through their lodge and crush it...

With no where to go they run towards a big tree and start climbing up...
The Leader of the buffalo nation starts to charge the tree trunk to knock it down !!!

Part three of the story will continue tomorrow.
Can anyone guess what happens next ???

Thank you for your votes !!!
Love Panther.

The folks realized after they got home that the areas they were in had all flooded bad and there were high water rescues occurring. Whew sure glad they got home before that. Getting home was a 40 mpg in 55 mph zones and everyone was taking it easy. We had awesome 4th but slept through booms as the house stayed rather quite. Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.

Yeah Mom finds it best to stand back and let the deer stretch a little to grab the crackers..She is a bit afraid of having a tick jump on her because you can see where some of the ticks are on them..For sure let's hope that skin sister never by mistake let's a bag with soap products etc on the floor where the little one would be able to get into..Sure hoping you both are having a great Monday..Pecked a V4U...Many birdie wing hugs to the 2 of you my dear friends..Stormy :o)

It's Blue and Jewel.
Dad was so sore from working the 4th of July show from 4:30pm to 9:30pm on Saturday that he did next to nothing yesterday. In the evening, after dinner, they did go see a movie called The Age of Adline. It was about a woman who, after a car accident, stopped aging. It was a pretty good movie.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 81 and a low of 60. Dad's still sore so there won't be much going on today, either.
Hope your day is fun.

It will be so nice not to have to drive 25 minutes to get groceries etc!
I can understand that they don't want fireworks going of in DRY CA. But, people don't care. When it's dry here they still set off the fireworks in the woods ...duh!
We had sun and hot today ... in the 80's! It felt like summer. The parronts were busy on the golf course so, I had a good nap. Looks like we might get to 80 on Monday. Is summer really here or is it a tease?

It was so good to have you there and singing at Dixie and Little Angel's anniversary party.Dixie was so happy to have you there singing.We are the ones who feel so honored and blessed to have had you there for us!He along with the rest of my flock just love all the songs you sing and he thinks we harmonize so well together too!We too had no idea that Amando had his own band either!
Mom will try and call and find out more info about Nana qualifying for a break on her electric bill.You would think that they would give it to senior citizens.
Last night Mom and I were watching the news and it said that Cupertino was having a laser light show instead of fireworks because of the drought.They showed Cupertino but it was dark and they showed the laser show.So we couldn't really see what it looked like.
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day being 79,the lows will be 63. Its 73 right now at 6:34pm.Mom and dad got up early and left for church and then when they came back we were all screaming for them as they left us with our curtains closed and not fed.Mom fed us opened our curtains and cleaned out our cages,while we were eating she stripped the bed and did all the laundry and got everything hung out on the line.As she was walking out back to hang the clothes out,skin sis came over.After Mom got the laundry out,she went to the freezers and pulled out some hamburgers,hot dogs,pork steaks,steak and Italian sausages for the grill.She made a salad with blueberries,grapes,tomatoes and lettuce.Dad worked on getting the grill out and ready and then skin bro called Mom and wanted to know when the BBQ would be,so she told him around 2:00pm.She got the meat in a marinade and all the rolls and relishes,ketchup,mustard etc on the tray and then went and made dad sandwiches for the week for work,got his coffee maker ready to go and Instant breakfast set up.Then she put us all in our deck cages and got us all out on the deck to get some sunshine and showers,it was a really nice hot day here for a change.Got up to 81.While Mom was waiting for the grill to get ready to put the food on skin sis painted Mom's nails for her,she hasn't had painted nails in years.Nana was supposed to come but she wasn't feeling well so she called to tell Mom she was staying home.Skin bro came shortly after as Mom was starting to grill everything and he brought a key lime pie with him for dessert.After everyone was done eating,Mom cleared everything up,skin sis helped with the dishes and then Mom served the key lime pie and some of that flag cake skin bro had brought for her birthday.Mom cleaned up the dishes and put all the left overs away that skin sis didn't take home with her and skin sis helped bring in the condiments and put them away while Mom was washing dishes etc.Then the skin sibs and Mom sat for a while on the deck with us until skin sis left at around 4:00pm,Mom stayed out with skin bro until he left an hour later.When skin bro left,Mom took us all

Thanks for the 30k congrats and could of never made that with out you and all the friends on BC.
Oh that same button always seems to break on the jungle talk toy so must be a weaker one but I got 3 other buttons that work so am happy with that LOL.
I can’t tell time but I sure know when my light is soon going off and its bed time. If mom doesn’t move fast enough I start to complain so she notices its my bed time and I am ready for bed. Last night I was all covered up for the night and then heard lots of boomers but didn’t say anything and kept quiet but it was interfering with my beauty sleep. Then silly mom got the idea of uncovering me to show me the pretty fireworks out the window. I wasn’t about to step up or come out so I didn’t get to see them but I heard the noise and think that was enough. I need all the beauty sleep I can get LOL. “Laughter is an instant vacation” Left a vote for you my friend. Your kissing cousin, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

My moms mom and one of her brothers use to paint.A few years back they took a painting class together.It would meet once a week for awhile they did some pretty nice stuff.That brother of mom's is pretty artistic he was good at the painting and now he does wood carving like moms dad.
My mom is thinking probably closer to the fall that her and dad can cook that meal together.
Really starting to get humid here now we are hoping we will just get a day or two of this and then have get nice again.
There was lots of fireworks going off last night but once again nothing to close sounding so I did just fine.Have a good evening.

Sugar finishes her first story...
Tweety and Cookie are excited about the story and cheer Sugar on.
Hulk and Peppi ask Sugar can you tell us another story ??? BooBoo and Cori give Sugar a gift and she accepts...


*** QUILL WORK WOMAN***
There was a beautiful girl who was blessed with the gift of making beautiful quill work. She was also blessed spiritually having dreams and visions...One morning she got up and told her mother that she had a dream of having four brothers who are waiting for her...She made beautiful War Shirts for each one of them and decorated the war shirts with quills...

Quill work woman packed the War shirts and her belongings and gave her mother a kiss. She said I'm going to find my four brothers.
Off she walked into the snow. She walked for a hundred
miles...
She found a big lodge in the snow and went inside. Not being able to find her brothers. She unpacked the War shirts and waited...
Not long after a young warrior who was 8 years old his name is Peppi came in the lodge. He was happy to see her and said sister I have been waiting for you. I called you in your dreams...Quill work woman gave him his war shirt and it fit him perfect. He then told her he is a spiritual leader and carries the sacred bow and arrow...
A while later her other three brothers came in and asked Peppi who is this ??? Peppi said this our sister I called upon...
Quill work woman gave her other three brothers Hulk, Tweety and Cookie their war shirts. They fit each brother perfect.

Quill work woman and her brothers were so happy and she cooked for them and took good care of them. The brothers always liked to joke around and Hulk said I thought all big sisters that could cook are fat and ugly !!! Tweety and Cookie said our big sister is fine !!!

One day the four brothers went out to hunt for food while Quill work woman stayed home and cleaned up their lodge...
Suddenly she heard a loud sound of thunder and the ground was shaking. A buffalo stuck his head in her lodge and said Quill work woman our leader is in love with you and wants to marry you and become part of our buffalo nation !!! Quill work woman said no I am happy here with my brothers. The buffalo ran off to tell his leader.

Later that night the four brothers brought back food to prepare.
They heard the earth rumbling and then the leader of the buffalo nation was calling to them...

Story to be continued tomorrow.
Can you guess what happens next ???

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Well, I didn't get a sunbath this morning, because it was too cloudy when Mom went to the gym. And when she got home again it was too hot. Now yesterday I made it clear I was ready to go out for my sunbath at 7:30PM, and my mom informed me there wasn't any sun. Can that be right? Does the sun actually disappear?

Anyway Mom went to the gym, and this is the first day of that new class UJAM which replaced Mom's beloved zumba. In her opinion it is a rip off of zumba, but not as good. She did promise the fitness director she would try it at least two or three times before judging, so she will do that. However she definitely wants zumba back, and they can just put UJAM before or after it. Mom thinks that is reasonable, but I am thinking if she really decides she doesn't like UJAM maybe she will stay home on Sundays. I would like that.

Today is Dad's birthday, and Mom wanted to take him out to dinner since their favorite pizza place closed down. He won't go. He really doesn't like restaurants all that much, and he thinks birthdays are no big deal. So she is going to take him to Subway, which works for me because I will get to share my mom's sandwich. Maybe Dad is good for something after all.

How about Panther's BOTM campaign? It sure is eggciting and interesting. I can't wait to see who makes it on his council of elders.

  Thank you P&S
Mom is a wannabe stitcher. She has a 'crochet project' in the works, an embroidery project(already over 10 years old), a knitting project, plus other non-needle stuff. She claims her hobby is collecting hobbies!
I did get corn, mom cut some off of POLLY's cob! I would have liked the cob, but mom wants to monitor how much I get, so counting kernels.
Did YOU get any special treats?

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope you are having a great day! I hope your 4th was tons of fun! Ian told mom the fireworks went on here until midnight. At mom's work it went on until 4am! Ian told mom he went to check on me a few times and I fluttered! That means he woke me up!! It was nice of him to check up on me.
I am sorry I didn't get many notes out yesterday! Mom drove Jennifer down to her dads house. They decided to go to Olympia first because Half Price Books was having a half off sale. Ian said that made them Quarter Price Books!hahahahaha Anyway, you don't really want the Bad Mom in a bookstore because she will spend way too much time looking at the books while her adorable Sugar is home waiting for her! Merlin was locked up in the bedroom and I bet the Bad Mom forgot about that! The Bad Mom was gone for 3 hours! A trip down to Lacey (where Jennifer's dad lives) should only take 1 hour and 10 minutes! The Bad Mom bought 9 books and a reusable shopping bag for $4.17! Great bargain but the Bad Mom should have been home in 1 hour and 10 minutes!
Now mom tells me there is a Half Price Books in Tacoma and she wants to go check that store out! Tacoma is only 15 minutes away but after this fiasco I am not sure I can trust her to come right back!
It is still a billion degrees here and today it's suppose to be a billion and one! I think I have had enough summer now thank you! There are no fans or A/C left in any store around here! Guess everyone should have believed the Weather Channel when they said this was going to happen! Glad the Bad Mom did and got us extra fans! I'm staying cool!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's perfect!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Guys
I hope you had a safe and fun Independence Day. Mom's daughter had a fine cookout with ribs, chicken, and kielbassa, along with salads and desserts. Mom's deviled eggs went over well.
Today is a sunny and warm day, but with low humidity so far, at least. Looks like the perfect pool day. Mom will probably nap there, since there were (illegal) firecrackers going off here well after midnight last night. Hope you have a wonderful summer day full of love and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.

  Hi Pearl, Hi Silver
It's Blue and Jewel.
The 4th of July event that dad worked with the police Dept. was awesome! Even though dad could not feel his feet when he got home at almost 11pm. Mom got home a few minutes after dad. She had a good time at her brother's house, too. She brought home a "Care Package" of food for dad.
Today will be the same as yesterday. Partly cloudy, with a high of 80 and a low of 61. Not much is going to get done today. Dad's too sore.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

  morning fellows !
I hope you had an enjoyable 4th of July - our day started out drizzly - it never really rained except for a few sprinkles - just misty and overcast . . . mom and dad weren't sure if they'd go to WestPoint or not, but then around 4:00 the sun came out ! ! ! It was a perfect evening - the band finished the concert with 1812 Overture and fireworks ! I was home watching "YANKEE DOODLE" on tv . . . (mom was in the show GEORGE M when she was in high school . . . )

Today they're heading off to the flea market - but that's only a couple hours . . . the rest of the day should belong to me, and rightfully so if I may add !

Have a lovely Sunday and give hugs to all in your house ! love Cookie

Happy Sunday.
Hope you had a great Holiday. The fireworks didn't bother me so much this year...but Dad was with me to protect me from BOOMS. He's a good protector.

Our 4th of July was warm and sunny and nice -not a drop of rain. Dad went to a nice party in the afternoon.

Today Dad and Uncle Geno are going to see "Magic Mike XXL" -sounds silly to me. Everyone knows birds dance much better than humans.

  Hi Pearl & Silver
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY. mom had Cori out on the porch while she read the paper. she attached her leash to the porch railing because there was a little more sun in that area. mom was sitting about 3 feet away from me. suddenly mom heard Cori flying and her heart froze as she looked up. Cori had decided i wanted to sit on mom and not the railing and had tried to fly to mom but the leash want long enough and she fell to the ground. She is ok but it sure scared mom and she will keep her on her from now on. the fireworks tonight were going of all around the house but mom kept the tv on so we weren't that upset. sometimes if their was a really loud bang we would jump

mom ran to the grocery store for a few things and a big mom turkey with 5 little babies crossed the road right in front of moms car. the little babies ran very fast.

love Boo Boo

  Hi Pearl & Silver,
wanted to wish you a very Happy 4th of July.

Another hot one...but at least cooler than yesterday, only got up to 105...lol, but the good news is that the AC is fixed. The owner came out this morning, mom called and left a message last night that the AC was still not working. It ended up being more than just the part the tech replaced yesterday, the tech should have stayed and checked to make sure everything was working properly. If he had stayed to find out what caused the part to fail he would have found that the area containing the blower was full of water. When the boss took off the cover water poured out and the bad news was that it got some of the electrical components wet...not good...he was here for almost three hours...but it is working now and dad is super happy about that...

The booming has started...

Wing hugs and love from your protector and friend, Chica

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Oh, we are very used to tourists so, no problem. We will have to learn the new stores ... which ones are best to shop at.
So, you are still really dry out there? I wish the east could send the rain out to you. We have plenty to soak all of us. At least we got thru the holiday with no rain.
Another nice day up here for the 4th. My parronts went to town to watch the parade. Then we had lunch together. We did have a cook-out for dinner on the patio. The chipmunks were eating near our table so, I guess we had company. Hope your 4th was greyt!
Hugs

  Hey Buddy's
A story for you...

***THE MOON AND THE COYOTE****
There was a very lonely coyote,She would go to the hills every full moon and talk to the moon. She fell in love with the moon...
One night she went to the hills and told the moon I love you. You are so beautiful !!! She hung her head and walked away. Suddenly she heard a soft voice say I love you too coyote...She turned around and the moon was standing behind her.
The moon and the coyote got married and had a beautiful son the color of his father...
They were so happy together !!!

One night a band of Warriors got lost trying to find their way home. They called on the creator to guide them home.The creator was angry !!! Where is the moon he asked ??? The Warriors told him we don't know.

The creator found the moon and the coyote and he said moon you are to stay where I put you. The creator raised his arms and the moon went back into the sky never to come down again.
The coyote and her son would go to the hill and howl to the full
moon to come back to them out of sorrow. All of her grand children and great,great grand children and the upcoming generations would howl at the full moon forever.
That is why the coyote howls at the moon...

Happy 4th of July
Love
Panther
