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!

  Hi Pearl & Silver
I think that people would be snowed in for a long time in the olden days. They had better have enough food stored!
Well, it's much farther for dad's family to come up here as it is for us to go down. It's strange how that works.
It was clean Chyna's condo day. I don't like that! I worked hard to get it that way.
At least we saw the sun again today! Looks like 3 more days of partial sun and then 3 days of snow. It will even snow on Christmas.
Better get the peppermint hot chocolate ready.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
It was a bright sunny morning here and the temperatures were 35 and it was freezing.Mom got us up early again and cleaned our cages,fed us and then dad helped Mom put the trash she collected in her car along with some other things and then she collected Dixie and got him in his carrier and wrapped him up In a warm blanket and put him in the car that dad had already warmed up for Mom,and off to Nana's they went.Dixie got to stay with our cousin Trixie II while Mom and Nana went to the dump,Post Office,then to Walmart,Michaels,and Shaws,then they went to Stop&Shop and got a few things there and then by the time they got back to Nana's house it was 4 O'clock and getting dark.Mom got all the groceries loaded in her car and then came back and got Dixie and they came home where Mom had to get Dad some dinner,clean out our cages,feed us our snack and put all the groceries away.While Mom was gone all day my dad put the purple lights in the dining room window and do they look just awesome!
Now they're saying that we are going to get a lot of rain on Christmas day,that's better than all snow!Mom has to give skin bro a wake up call at ten to five this morning so she'll be up early again!He took a job that no one wanted to come in for so the boss told that crew that if no one wanted to volunteer then he would make someone come in and skin bro said that he'd do it and he's running on empty where sleep is concerned,Mom is so worried about him driving in such a state.
Oh you just don't know how loud a sunnie can be,tiels are so quiet next to sunnies,my dad just loves it when the two of us,Mario and I are talking together,especially when we are talking to each other using words!
All four tiels open their wings wide for a big group tiel wing hug and the feeling is so good that no birdie wants to ever let go but soon Silver and Pearl reach out for their guitars and begin to strum,performing more traditional songs.They start with The Coventry Carol followed by the Wexford Carol!They have the most impeccable harmony when they're singing together!
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 for you too! Loving you always and forever,Peepers

  Hi Pearl and Silver
That is what probably happened to skin sis car battery since she didnt start it for a while and was using SIL car or didnt go anywhere other days.
Today mom was messing with making a card she has been working on for a while after she got her house work all done. Then this evening she decided to print out on this thinner paper with a saying on it. The first one came out fine but the second one got stuck in the printer! Mom worked for a good while and then dad came with all his tools to see what he could do with it. After about 3 hours dad got the paper out of the rollers and plugged back in. He ran one paper thru and it was a bit dirty and at this point mom isn’t about to even try it again!!

Well, I am happy to report that I have been a good boy so far today, and no biting since yesterday's disaster. Now I am in my room for another reason altogether. I took a bath in my water bowl, and Mom wants me in the warmest room in the house till I dry off. I keep calling her, but I want her to come in here not for me to leave. Not working out too well so far.

Mom went to the gym this morning, and since she was verrry sweaty when she got home after training and zumba she needed a shower. However she came in to sit with me first, since I was calling her. She had to wear her summer bathrobe too, since her warm winter one is bright red and I would freak out immediately. I wonder why so many of us hate the color red? It must be something dangerous in the wild that is bred into our feathers. Anyway I got Mom time, then she got her shower and then I got more Mom time. Now I just need to dry off!

My mom found the free books on the Kindle yesterday! She found a Christmas Cookie book she wants to check out. Nice to have that stand so one doesn't have to constantly hold the Kindle while reading.
There's a bunch of floor fans to at mom's work nice because some people my mom works with are always warm.
Oh my dad is the worst one time the t.v remote was in a cracker box took the parronts days to find it.Mom always teases him and says he carries it like a baton.She tells him she feels like she's on a easter egg hunt every time he's had the remote.
Another gloomy day here crazy we can't get any sunshine. Have a good afternoon.

Mom still has wrapping to do.
This morning mom went to the center as usual, and was assigned the squirrel porch and the squirrel pens. Needless to say, she had her new coat on, not thinking of working outside. So she hung up her coat and got one of the ghillie suit coats to wear while she worked. It was really cold outside, or she'd have gone out in just her sweatshirt. Haha, I bet the squirrels never saw her coming! She was disguised as a bunch of leaves, haha. There are 19 squirrels spending the winter outside this year.
After she got home her sister called her to go to the Italian store to buy food for Christmas eve. So, we are here after 3:30, just starting our blogs. At least Peppino went first, and his are done.
That's all the news for now too, so I hope you are having a wonderful day full of anticipation of Santa Bird coming to visit you, and being so very good. Hugs, Falco

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope you guys are having a great day! I'm watching mom do notes while the laundry is going. Mandy had a few accidents this morning. One was mom's own fault because when she turned the rug cleaner on Mandy got scared and peed in the hallway! Mom forgot to put her in the bedroom! She doesn't like those machines any better than I do!!hehehehe

That black bird is still in the store. They hired a guy to bring a cage in to try to trap him but he doesn't seem to be interested in what is in it! Mom told them they should try millet or peanuts! They put it up on a rack where the indoor hanging plants are since that is where he is hanging out. There is an indoor fountain so he is staying close to that. Mom was looking at him and he was clicking at her. She clicked back to him but I guess her black bird speak is not good cause he just ignored her! She had the freight guys leave the garden doors open for a while but he doesn't seem interested in going out. He knows where the bird seed is in the garden and in the pet center so I guess he has figured out a way to eat. Hopefully when the store is full of people today he will go into the cage so they can take him outside.

No Daily Deals today since they are having a 2 day sale. It's not just for 2 days because some of it started yesterday and there are things for tonight too. All the popcorn poppers are half off this time. There is one they got in for Christmas that is a Mickey Mouse countertop popper. It's $100!!!! Only $50 today so mom's boss grabbed on for his kids. We got a nice one last year and it was only $20. I don't really need it to be Mickey Mouse as long as it pops corn!

You guys enjoy the day and we hope your mom is doing well! Only 5 days to go!hehehehe

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Thanks for your votes every day! I love hearing from you.
Today we are in Market Square, in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh. Every Christmas season it turns into a Holiday Marketplace, with booths set up for buying locally made crafts and artworks, food booths and tables for the people brave enough to sit outside and eat, a house for Santa to stay in and see the children, and even a stage where locals can perform music, theater, and dance. It's a fun place to visit during the holidays, and it sure brightens up the downtown area for everyone. It has become a destination for some, along with decorated store windows, and the replica of the Vatican nativity scene on Steel Plaza.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of love. Hugs, Peppino

Mom and dad saw a very good movie yesterday. It's called "The Judge". Before the movie, dad bought gas for the car, at $2.35 per gallon and after the movie he picked dinner at The Green Burrito. Not a real exciting day.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 64 and a low of 48. Looks like today will be just as exciting.
Hope your day is fun.

Did you know how I got my name? "Flitzer" is German for "to streak or fly very fast". It's used for cars and planes.
My Dad loved a little roller-coaster called "The Flitzer" at Crystal Beach Amusement Park, and I am named for that coaster.
There are times Dad wishes he named me "Sit Still" -HA! ~Wings Up~

Well, last year my dad was very tired of plowing almost 3 times a day. So far this year he has only plowed twice a day for a few times.
Many people want a white Christmas ... even dad's family downstate. We are that little area that always gets pounded, lucky us.
I saw the sun for an hour today. It made all the snow on the trees and ground look like crystals, very pretty. I don't know why it won't stay. The snow will be back for sure on Tuesday. I hope the sun comes back too. It stays away much too long!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
the bad budgie only buzzed me twice tonight so i didn't feel a need to hide from him. he was more interested in playing with his toys on his play stand.

When the forest suddenly gets quiet and birds take flight, it might be time to worry about a brewing storm.

scientists stumbled on the finding when they were studying golden-winged warblers—small birds that weigh less than a third of an ounce. the team was testing if the birds could carry tiny backpack transmitters.

The warblers are the smallest species ever tracked, and when the researchers retrieved the transmitters from five birds, they discovered something strange: The birds had all moved away from their breeding grounds a day before the storm, flying nearly 1,000 miles—even though the tornado was still hundreds of miles away.

The researchers think that the birds were sensing infrasound—acoustic waves that occur at frequencies below 20 hertz. While humans can’t hear such a low level of sound, it’s known that birds and other animals can.

is it time to fire the meteorologists and start looking to the sky for storm predictions? Not quite yet.

“Birds are really good at predicting storms, but they’re not a good replacement for satellites and radar, There is one situation that birds could beat humans: “If you were all alone in the forest and all the birds left, you should be worried about it.”

When storms force birds to flee, it can put pressure on their ability to breed. As storms become more powerful and frequent with climate change, those disruptions will grow.“They wouldn’t do this with a normal thunderstorm, but if it comes to big storms arriving every year and birds losing four to five days of breeding season, it would be a big problem for their conservation,”
Golden-winged warblers have suffered one of the steepest population drops of any songbird species in the past 45 years, according to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Conservationists are working on a plan to stop the decline and grow the population 50 percent by 2050.

Yes lots been replaced in our commode too as well as the whole commode too LOL. This one was harder to detect since it didnt do it all the time and was so quiet when it replaced the lost water so was hard to hear too.
Mom thought she was going to get some things done here today but just when she got her cleaning done and started the next project skin sis called. She had went out to start her car to go to the store and it wouldn’t start so mom and dad went over with the battery charger. It started pretty quick and she left it run a while and went to the store and it seems ok. Think the problem was not running it for a while cause they were using BIL car. Mom did come home and did a few more things but the rest are on the list for tomorrow now.

Oh those umbrellas aren't much good on a windy day that's for sure!And you're right about without the proper rain gear in the pouring rain one can get really soaked to the skin!
Oh that's good that furball lives with skin sis and I'll bet furball really misses being home with you all at Christmas!Mom loves having our little tree up on the window sill of our bay window in the tv room,you are so right that it works best with being viewable from the outside at people and cars going by so everyone can see it!
I had Dixie and Kallie put some special ones that we all sing together in the song list!Mom sent you your special picture for winning the theme.Mom apologizes for being late with it,there's just been so much going on around here lately!
Mom was late getting our curtains closed tonight and Kallie flew onto Mom's shoulder and screamed loud right in her ear and was she deaf for nearly an hour!Mom was none too happy about Kallie screaming at her for not hurrying fast enough to get the curtains closed in our room!We too are the same,once those curtains are closed we want to get to the tv room and in our sleeping boxes to snuggle for the night.
This morning was a bright sunny morning and it lasted throughout most of the day here the temperatures were as high as 44 but it was still pretty chilly out there.They are talking a storm here for us on Christmas Eve and Mom is so hoping that it won't be snow or freezing rain.We are so looking forward to having Christmas at Nana's and chowing down some of that awesome food they will be making and baking!Mom spent the day cleaning the corner of her bedroom where she just dumps all the stuff she buys thinking that the next day she'll put everything back where it belongs but it never happens,so she finally got it done today and got some things to throw out,she cleaned out the closet also but it sure doesn't even look like she touched it!Mom collected the trash and got that ready to go in the car for tomorrow for the dump and then she's going to take Nana on some last minute errands for Christmas and a few other things and hopefully she'll be home before dark to be with us!Mom has to stay awake til 11:00pm tonight as she told skin bro she would give him a wake up call so he could get at least 4 hours sleep before heading back out to work,he's so afraid of going to sleep and missing going to work and losing the job,instead of coming home this morning and going to bed he went to work for a landscaper and didn't get back from there til well after 8 tonight.He'sn staying awake 24/7 for the last several weeks and Mom is so afraid he'll crash up and fall asleep at the wheel,that is her one big worry about him right now.
The four tiels all open their wings wide for a big group tiel wing hug and hold on in the joy and love of their friendship.Not long after they separate and begin to sing more classic songs!First they sing the First Noel then they sing it'll be O Come All Ye Faithful and all four tiels have perfe

Mom wouldnt mind getting a few extra books on her kindle would be nice to maybe start doing some reading at work on her breaks.Usually easier sometimes to navigate certain websites on a desktop computer vesus another device.
Usually not to bad at moms work once they get the heat adjusted right.They always start turning on fans if it gets to warm.
Glad you are getting more rain with that break in between.

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Ian is working daytime today. Mom was teasing him about having bankers hours today!
It's awesome that Jade enjoyed her shopping trip. I bet everything looks so interesting to her! Does she have a favorite toy? When Ian was little mom and dad took him to the mall just to go for a walk and when there were in this little card shop, Ian grabbed this small clown and wouldn't let go of it. It was made out of a sock and had an orange hat. They named it Coco and he is in mom's closet! Over the years he had to have a few repairs but he is still here! It's going to be interesting to see what Jade likes.
Ian is always commenting on some of the girls toys and not understanding why someone would like them and mom told him that is because he is not an 8 year old girl!
Mom has 6 more days and can not wait! It was hard getting the ad done last night since she did not do the 2 previous ones. She had to pull the ad copy out to make sure she found the stuff that was coming off. They had crockpots for 50% off today and tomorrow there is candles, picture frames, art, throws, pillows and popcorn popper! They call it the Daily Deal but since there is so much, should it be Deals??hahaha
We hope your mom is getting some rest. I bet she will be happy to be back on a more normal schedule!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's just perfect!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
I guess the baby latches will keep the doors closed in case of an earthquake, right? Mom still hasn't heard from the guy, but she's hoping to soon.
Today mom had 2 tours at the museum, one on climate change and biomes with 7th grade, and one with 6th grade called 3 Cultures. The one with the 7th graders was fun, it was interesting to mom to have 2 guys in the new docent class trailing her to see how to do them, too. (She hasn't had men chasing her for the longest time, hahaha.) The second tour had about 100 kids, which meant 10 docents and groups! The halls they visit for 3 cultures are close together, but small. They compare 3 desert cultures, ancient Egypt, Inuits (tundra) from about 100 years ago, and modern Hopi Indians. It's hard not to bump into other docents with their tour groups when the halls are so small and close together, but it's manageable if everyone is going in the same direction.
Anyway, mom is home now and will go out to dinner tonight with her sister. At least the tree and stockings are up and in place! Mom did that yesterday while she was waiting for the furnace people to call about Aunt Gin's house. They called her finally and set up another day, next Tuesday! GAAAAHHH!
I hope you are having a good day and getting some scritches and cuddles today. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Short blog today, because I am afraid Mom is pretty upset with me. I bit her again today, and needless to say I am in time out now. It bled which is never good, and since I nailed her hand (and no warning again!) she doesn't like typing much. Hopefully by this afternoon I will be forgiven.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Thanks for your continuing votes! I love hearing from you every day, too.
Today we are taking some public transportation! Not your common bus, subway, or trolley, but the INCLINE! (Pittsburgh does have the trolleys, buses, and a little subway system as well.) For anyone not from around here, the inclines are a way to get from downtown to either Mount Washington or the South Side, depending on which one you take. The first 2 shots are the Duquesne Incline, which goes up from Station Square in town to Mount Washington, a neighborhood of Pittsburgh that offers spectacular views of the downtown area. The next 2 are the Monongahela (or Mon) incline, which goes to the slopes of the South Side of the city. Believe it or not, there used to be public steps every bit as steep as the inclines are, where steelworkers and glassworkers would climb from their jobs to their homes. Imagine going up a couple hundred steps after a long day in the mill!
The inclines were originally used for that same purpose, but today they are mostly a tourist attraction, although some folks still park up there and ride to town because parking is cheaper on the hills. If you are a senior citizen, you ride for free, the same as all the public transportation in the city.
I hope you are having a fun day today and getting some sun. It's cold and kind of snowy here. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Pearl, hi Silver.
It's Blue and Jewel.
Sorry we weren't on the BC yesterday. Mom and dad got up early and left the house. They went to a funeral for a friend. One of the people in dad's police volunteer group passed away. She had been a volunteer for 25 years. The ceremony was packed. Everyone, including the Chief of Police and the entire command staff was there. There were so many people that more chairs had to be set up outside the chapel. After the ceremony there was a reception held at a nearby banquet hall. The room was filled. There was not an empty table to be found. There was a full buffet of food and two tables of disserts. Dad says that he thinks the police dept. helped pay for the reception. Dad said that you never really know how many friends you have until your funeral.
After the reception mom and dad went to the Magnolia Bird Farm for our food and by the time they got home it was way past our bedtime. Mom and dad were both so full from the buffet that they didn't fix any dinner for themselves.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 65 and a low of 47. Dad has to fill up the car with gas cuz they have a play to go to on Saturday.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

  Morning boys & hard working momma-from Jenny
Before our visiting nurse got here yesterday, dad addressed and prepped 30 Christmas Cards, something we have always loved to do, but we have forgotten how time consuming this labor of love can be! Not to worry, we will send all 50 cards sooner or later, bear with us! We are having a very normal Winter day in the December MidWest, a little overcast, slightly below freezing, but pretty nice overall! LaLo is slowing daddy down a little, that little heifer can't speak a word, but she is so sweet, she don't have to, she can make a certain noise and dad comes a running, she really is the sweetest bird that has ever lived here, much like Angel Christy! Have a greyt day, and give my love to all in your happy Christmas home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love on throwback Thursday, from Jenny & our Dallas family

HAPPY HUMPDAY

HAPPY HUMPDAY

mom says the budgie is pinning his eyes at me.

i know budgies that have lived here in the past have always been obsessed with Cori but this is the first time that one is coming after me. he flew down again tonight and mom clapped her hands very loud and yelled at him. i hid under the dresser drawer, mom had left partially open, the rest of the night. mom says i am a very good girl for not being aggressive with him but it made her feel bad that i felt the need to hide from him.

love Boo Boo

  Hi Pearl & Silver
We had a green spot too during our melt. It was on the septic field ... hehehehe. We are back to all white again with the snow from last night and today ... more next week too.
I think it was just me being hormonal. All is well now, I was good all day!
I think that Cookie is counting down for school to be out! So he can have more mommie time.

Well, we are back to cold and snow. Looks like a good peppermint hot chocolate day around here. I can drink it while watching dad plow the snow. He must like to do that cause he does it a lot ... must be fun. I just don't see it.
Hugs
Chyna
