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 and Silver
Early this morning at 4:00am when my dad was leaving for work it was freezing and snowing like mad.In the end we only got about an inch or so more and our highs are 21 and our lows will be 12. Mom got us all cleaned and our breakfast of warm pastene/egg/veggie mix when the phone rang and skin bro was outside in the driveway at 9:15am.He had shoveled more of the driveway as the plows left more snow at the end again while they came through.Then Mom made him breakfast of blueberry waffles and some strawberry shortcake coffee and he stayed with Mom til after 2:00pm.Mom gave all of us birdie cures,nail trims for Dixie,Kallie and Candida as their nails were pinchy.Dad went to get gas this morning before he went to work and he tried to open the door for the gas tank and he couldn't get it opened,so he finally had to leave and get to work and later on in the day he finally got to pry it open,it was frozen shut.Mom and skin bro were looking out the window watching all the wild birds coming and going from the feeders and the bird house and there was a starling who was inspecting the bird house,he had been poking his head into the entry holes and then on the second entry hole he decided he was going to go inside and both Mom and dad sparrow came and chased him away,he kept trying to come back but both sparrows chased him right out of the yard.We are supposed to get another big storm on Monday of a foot or more,this is getting to be ridiculous.Skin sis is coming by from work to visit with Mom in about an hour and other than that its been a boring kind of a day.
Sorry about such a quick blog but my dad wants mom to spend some time with him as he hasn't been home all week and when he did get home he was sleeping!I so apologize and will be back tomorrow to chat more!

Seen where your computer went black and hoping your soon back on BC again ...we miss you!
I had a long day yesterday and was ready for bed last night and went to bed about 15 minutes earlier then I usually do. Mom felt it was too cold to go to get my nails trimmed today at the warehouse so she just keeps filing them down a bit every so often. There isn’t much heat in the warehouse but just in the one room Cindy does the grooming in. ”Dear Winter, I’m breaking up with you. I think its time I start seeing other seasons.

Jules hands over a package of cookies with the seahawks logo. Oatie & Makana got busy this morning after checking up on mom. She's got pneumonia and coughs all the time. Kept us all up all night. We told her over and over to not cough so loud. She got some cold meds today so now she's not as bad. We'll see about tonight. I didn't know we needed a foghorn around here though. She does say she's sorry but that doesn't get us rest. Oh well, it can't last forever can it?
Tomorrow is Sidney's memorial day. Ipo says it's 2 years since she flew over the bridge. She sounds like a bird I'd like to know.

  Hi ya Pearl, Hi ya Silver~
I hope you are having a fun day! I'm done with my yelling for now and have gone back to chomping down on my veggie bowl. I got apple last night so mom gave me veggies this morning. It's fun to switch it around sometimes and as long as I get something I like to eat, I don't seem to mind!
The last load of laundry is in the washer and mom had some to put away. We seem to be doing laundry everyday now so it is not such a big deal.
There is a big line at the Starbucks next door! They are selling Seahawk Fraps! Mom treated herself to one after she renewed her license yesterday and it was yummy! It's the Vanilla cream, which mom likes anyway, with blueberries and a green tea whip on top! Seahawk colors! There are Seahawk colors everywhere up here today and I imagine tomorrow will be the same! Mom wore her 12th shirt to the DOL but the drivers license picture is only your face so you can't see the shirt! BUMMER! Almost everyone at the DOL was in Seahawk gear, even the employees! I think it's going to seem a bit dull around here without Blue Fridays!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Pearl & Silver!
Hi! We just wanted to stop by and say a quick hello since we haven't been around much lately.

How are you guys and mom doing? We hope all is well at your nest.

We missed that "historic blizzard" that was supposed to hit us last weekend. Instead of 24" we got 2"! Oops! Anyway, now we're supposed to get some kind of storm starting tomorrow night into Monday. We'll believe it when we see it.

Mom is about tired of all this snow and cold! She's so ready for spring! We can't wait to be able to open the windows. And hopefully by then we'll be in our own place! Mom promises she'll find a place with nice windows.

Mom is hanging in there. She finally got diagnosed and put on a treatment plan, which is why she's been on and off the computer lately. Mom is learning more and more about the disease she has. It's pretty serious and scary. It's called sarcoidosis. And mom has to take cancer medication that has serious side effects. It's called methotrexate. But she's trying to stay positive. She just knows there has to be a job for her soon!

My buddies (mom's nephews)should be coming over tomorrow. They didn't come last Sunday and I missed them. I was confused.

Love you guys! Stay warm! Enjoy the Superbowl if you are watching it!

Love and wing hugs from your friends,
Kahlua, Tango (& Mom)

  Hi Silver & Pearl
Hello BC commando's, Amando here on this final day in the Brazilian Rainforest. We we took a bite out-of-crime, Sugar and Dory watched baby Armando. He was very restless and alert as he listened to the screams and calls of the angry birds. Suddenly he hears a familiar call echoing over the treetops. He replies happily. The calls continue as baby Armando replies over and over again. Captain Finny appears over the edge of the clearing, and there, following close behind are two beautiful adult Blue-fronted Amazons. The three land close to Sugar. Baby Armando stands up as tall as his tiny legs will allow him to and chirps non-stop. A lovely Zon moves closer, chirping softly in reply. The baby gets even more eggcited.
JL and Amando whistle in loud short Zon calls and the attack comes to an end. The birds leave their prisoners lying entangled in the nets and rejoin them near to baby Armando and the two wild Parrots. The wild Zon reaches forward to touch the baby gently, not certain if it is their chick after so long. The baby responds with happy chirps of happiness, "Momma? Poppa? it is me baby Armando."
The two Parrots grin happily and snuggle their stolen offspring to them. "How do we ever thank-you for saving our baby, and freeing our flockmates from the cages those evil poachers had them imprisoned in? Our flock was once very large over 80 adults but the poachers come again and again stealing them away, taking our chicks from our homes. They cut down our nest tree and stole Armando and our two other babies. We now have no home to take Armando to."
Gus speaks up happily, " we have a nest for you. BB built it to trap the poachers but we didn't have to use it. It is solid, and warm and we will put it high into a tree were you and your family will be safe."
The BC Commandos cheer as they watch baby Armando with his Momma and Poppa. The family is so happy to be together once more. "Sadly this is not the true outcome of poaching. Humans can help stop this awful trade in wild-caught Parrots by becoming our voice in the World. By NEVER buying Parrots without bands or documents showing where they originated from. Remember that many wild Parrots are sent to Europe to be shipped back into the USA. Encourage Eco-tourism as an alternative to poaching. HELP US STOP THE UNNECESSARY TRAPPING OF WILD PARROTS THROUGH OUT THE WORLD!"
Remember Paoo, what he suffered because of human greed, and also remember that many former poachers now fight on the other side of the law because of their intimate knowledge of the area and of bird habits, these poachers-turned-rangers are undeniably the most able bird conservationists available.

That's adorable, climbing to check out shoes!
King Peppino is inviting everyone to stop by his page and share in the fish fry (bake and grill, too) that he's hosting today for his last day in the castle.
It's cold and dry here today. No snow is expected until tomorrow. Mom will spend the day doing laundry and cleaning up a few things, then will go to dinner with her sister this evening. She's hoping her sister will want to come this way, so she doesn't have to drive. The driveway is still a little icy because the salt only melts at a certain temperature and it is colder than that. Of course, the sun could warm up the asphalt enough to melt it, too.
There's nothing else going on, but I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. It is the weekend, after all! Hugs, Falco

  Hi Pearl, Hi Silver.
It's Blue and Jewel.
We had some rain yesterday. Not really rain, just dribbles but every little bit helps. It wasn't even enough to register on dad's weather station but the ground was wet. That's good enough for us. Mom and dad went to the movies and saw The Gambler. No, not the one staring Kenny Rogers, the newer one that just came out. Mom and dad both liked it. When dad started to fix dinner, mom said, "Wait, I want to clean one cage." Mom cleaned Emmie's cage. It only took five minutes cuz Emmie is a clean little birdy.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 73 and a low of 52. Mom's going to finish up the rest of the cages and dad has a computer to work on.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

  Hi guys !
Boy has mom had a week ! I think she may just hibernate all weekend - and from the looks of things maybe a couple extra hours on Monday. Yup, more snow on its way ! Let's see . . . 10 inches on Tuesday, 5-6 on Friday and now 6-9 on Monday - and it's so cold nothing is melting, it just will keep piling up !

Before even coming home to see me, mom went to the store for a new coffee maker - she had to go to a couple places to find what she wanted . . . a 12 cup perculator - she thinks coffee tastes best perked ! So now she's happy :) Me too !

Have a good Saturday :) love Cookie

Bitter bitter cold here - Dad says he's ready for 'Global-Warming' whatever that is.

Dad stayed in last night - we had popcorn [Yay] and watched "It Happened One Night"

happy tgif day. its 6 degrees now. we are getting more snow on saturday also. dad can't shovel the driveway and mom sure can't either with her back so mom is parking at the very top of the driveway and dad has 4 wheel drive and the car just glides out over the snow. doggie had to poop so bad this morning that dad didn't have enough time to get her waterproof sock on over her splint so her splint got wet and dad had to go back to the vet to get the splint rewrapped.

we think the groundhog will see his shadow because since winter weather was so late in starting its going to take its time leaving

This morning was a dark,dismal,dreary day with rain on top of the snow.Our highs for the day were to be 38 and our lows will be 14 and right now its 32.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages and got us our warm pastene/egg/veggie mix and then she cleaned our room and vacuumed the whole house.After she got that done she cleaned out the coal/wood stove and got it all set up for the next storm we will have and that will be on Monday where we will be getting another foot of snow here!There's just no place to put the snow we have right now and my dad is working 12 hour days to get rid of it and to get the mountains of snow on the roads down so drivers can see around them.As she was getting ready to scrub the bathrooms skin bro called and he was quite upset so Mom told him to come on over if he could get here safely which he did,so Mom fed him some lunch of angel hair pasta and told Mom that he was still shaking after slamming into an elderly man who suddenly slammed on his brakes with no warning,skin bro tried to stop but he hit him anyway.They both got out of their vehicles and the man waved skin bro on as there was no damage to either car.Then my dad calls Mom and tells her that he will be working 12 hour days on the weekend also.So now he comes home from work,Mom has dinner ready,he eats and goes to bed only to get up at 4:00am and do it all over again.Mom hasn't seen him in nearly a week now!This is going to go on until further notice.

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope you had a wonderful day! It was pretty nice around here. The fog never completely burned off but it wasn't too bad. Mom had to go get her drivers license renewed but it only took her about half an hour. She went to the library after and got me a lovely stack of new books to read.
Mom did her taxes tonight so that's all done. She is never sure if she understands everything. She used Turbo Tax so they sort of do the whole thing for you. It was free last year but she had to pay for it this year. Like I said, she doesn't understand most of it but it's done!
We did more cleaning today since it's mom's day off and she tries to get the major stuff done on Fridays. Tomorrow we will get some meals made ahead of time and decide on what she is going to buy for our Superbowl/Puppy bowl party. Mom will be sleeping when the Superbowl starts but she'll know when they win because of all the noise around here! It was the same way last year. We still celebrate and enjoy the Puppy bowl!
I hope you have a lovely evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

We never see squirrels here in our yard. They would be better then all these sparrows that wont let any other birds eat and come in swarms. Guess they tell the whole sparrow neighborhood when any food is out for birds. LOL
Mom is hoping to get a nice Saturday here soon to go see Cindy to get my nails and beak trim. She is only in now on Saturdays till April when it warms up more and then she will be there on Wednesdays too. Mom says my nails cant wait that long though. The vet mom finally found and liked has now sent us a paper and sold the business to a lady vet but she wont be moved in till March. We will see how warm tomorrow is and maybe call Cindy and make sure she will be there. I know I can wait LOL. ”Dear Winter, I’m breaking up with you. I think its time I start seeing other seasons.

Sounds nice being able to still enjoy going to the beach to sit there and relax if dressed properly. Just crazy to my mom that the winter stuff goes on clearance in the dead of winter.
That's how it seems to be at my mom's job too every little thing towards discipline needs to be documented that's why it can seem to take forever for one to be fired.Think rule abuser would have been let go quite a while ago if the prior administrator wasn't letting stuff slide like her being tardy and such.
Looks like we are in for snow Saturday night into Sunday so my mom's keeping a close eye on the weather. They say it could be the heaviest snow we have had all winter so far.Its all depending upon where the storm line falls my mom's so hoping it will stay south of here . Have a good evening.

Well, I messed up again and bit my mom this morning before she went to the gym. So she not only went with a war wound on her hand, but in zumba one of the ladies commented on a bruise on her chest Mom hadn't even noticed.....and there was a bite mark in the middle of it. Ouch! Not sure when that one happened.

I am being good this afternoon though, and I sit quietly on my mom's knee dictating my blogs. It is not warm enough for a sunbath, but it also doesn't look like the rain is going to show up. And the snow pack in the mountains (our major source of water) is only at 25%, so apparently the drought continues. When will it end? Ask the members of congress who deny there is such a thing as Global Warming....humph!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Amando here, shhhhhh! We are just preparing to wage an all-out attack on five poachers int he Rainforest of Brazil. Make sure you have your camo hat on, and let's await JL's order to move in!
The Green Angels and Finny have found Armando's Momma and Daddy!! But have warned them that it's not safe to reunite them until we get those poachers. So even though they are very anxious to get their little Armando back, they've agreed to wait and help us. They're up there with the Green Angels and Finny right now in the tree tops tending the nets, ready to cut them down at a moments notice. Their awaiting the signal, but they're really geeked!
Jenny-Lynn and Amando stand on fallen tree limbs, Sky is perched in the tree near to the trap nest box. The Special Forces are standing, beaks ready at the net ropes. Zippy has already begun working on a rope that holds a large webbed net. Suddenly JL and Amando let out a shrill Zon whistle, the signal to begin their attack. The birds begin to chew and tear at the ropes holding the nets in place.
"WE ARE READY TO TAKE DOWN THEM POACHERS AND TEACH THEM A HARD LESSON" Sweetpepper whispers to Kiddo.
With wave of her wing JL leads the BC troops into battle, "we will do what we came here to do, and by the way you have all come together, we shall be invincible!" moving ahead she exclaims, " WE SHALL LEAD FROM THE FRONT! No more stolen parrots, no more needless suffering, are ya with me gang!" Then loudly so the startled poachers hear," Poachers, this is not your day, on this day you pay for your cruelty.'
The startled poachers turn every-which-way trying to see who has spoken. Then out of the jungle, from the sky above come the birds, screaming in anger as they swoop in for the attack. JL and Amando see the Blue-fronts crammed into wire cages and their hatred boils over. Cappy attacks the ring-leader without mercy, biting his hand hard and refusing to let go. The Special forces have the nets freed and as the five cowardly criminals try to run, the net falls entrapping them like they the innocent Parrots they have caught in the past. The air is filled with screams of outrage as the wild Blue-fronts arrive to help. The men scream in fear as bird after bird attacks, biting or pooping on them as they struggle to get free of the nets.
BonBon and Parker are gone to get the jaguars! The cats are very eggsited to help get the poachers! Their kind is also being poached for their fur! The angry jungle cats growl fiercely as they see the poachers flailing in the nets they'd set to trap Parrots. The poachers cry for help, like the Parrots they've captured but no one can hear them. Falco and Jesse free the trapped Zons from their prison, only one is injured from this group. They join in the assault on their enemies.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
It rained, then froze when the snow started overnight. Today it is cold and windy. When mom walked the dogs, it was still a bit icy too. When she got home, she had to shovel and scrape the driveway so she could get the car out. Today was her shift at the center, and she was about 20 minutes late because of the shoveling. She did the avian nursery today. Right now there are 4 screech owls and about 8 mourning doves in there, as well as a blue jay and the 2 cedar waxwings. Mom was lucky. Only one of the doves got out while she was cleaning its cage, and when she finished, she was able to net it and return it quickly. She hates when she has to chase them around and they go behind the bank of cages or someplace else that's hard to reach. The staff was also training a bunch of new interns today, which is good news for everyone. Mom didn't think there would be interns there until spring.
After the center, mom went to the grocery store to pick up a few things, and now she's ours for the rest of the day. YAY! We love when she stays home.
I hope you are having a great day, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

with a vote and a blog. Mom has a busy Friday lined up. It is snowing here and she wants to get everything done before it gets dark. Driving on our roads is pitiful at night, since they don't clean too well. She will only go to her dancing if the snow lets up. See you tomorrow.

  Hey Buddy's
The grand is due March 1st. My mommy is so excited.
The baby's going to be a girl !!! So now it's all about buying pink...

It's so cool that the Sharks won another game. Let's hope they make it to the playoffs... GO SHARKS !!!
Believe it or not the Lakers won their game last night.
Not to excited yet until they start winning more...

Mommy uses this color called Caramel by Loreal for her hair. It's really pretty with gold and blue bases. Her hair doesn't turn blue...Hair dyes with blue bases takes away a lot of unwanted red and brassy tones. Leaving her hair a beautiful medium to light brown with gold highlights.

No rain for you yet ??? Hopefully you get some soon. We have been blessed to have rain but we need more for the drought.

Have a Happy TGIF
Love your buddy
Panther

  Hi Pearl, Hi Silver.
It's Blue and Jewel.
While mom and dad waited for the ADT guy to show up mom decided to clean bird cages. She did five cages, all together. When the ADT guy got there she had to stop because he needed to move the fridge away from the wall in order to get to the plug for power. It only took him a little less than one hour to install the repeater, which boosts the wireless signals to and from the main alarm panel. We all hope this fixes the problem because we don't like strangers in our house. Mom continued with the last cage and finished just in time for dinner.
Today will be mostly cloudy, with a high of 71 and a low of 54. There's also a 20% chance of rain but dad doesn't think it will amount to anything. We got some sprinkles last night but not enough to register on the rain gauge. Mom is going to start working on Sunday's dinner today. Her mom and dad are coming over to watch the Super Bowl and eat pot roast.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

Hi, Pearl & Silver, my friends!

Thursday was yet another Slippery-snowy day in Buffalo. Dad cancelled evening plans - just didn't want to bother with it all last night - besides, it is nicer for me when he stays home.

We're getting psyched for our BirdChannel campaign - I hope you have as much fun visiting us in February as we will have. Where there's Flitzer, there's always a Party! ~Wings Up~

  Hey fellows - TGIF !
For real ! ! One of THOSE days already ! Mom's been up since just after 3:30 - the plows make so much noise ! Of course she and daddy weren't thinking buying in May that their bedroom faced the road - they were young and stupid ! ! She'll probably nap when she gets home - or earlier if the phone rings about a delay . . . of course she has a couple errands to run - more wild bird seed and a coffee pot - she's going to be real cranky if she can't get it going - right now it's gurgling and gurgling and NOTHING ! ! OH NO ! She can't go to school without coffee - lots of it ! School spirit week this week ! I'll have to be ready with plenty of quaker therapy when she gets home today !

Happy Friday ! love Cookie

  Hi Pearl and Silver
while mom was feeding us this morning she looked outside and there was a big buck standing on our patio looking in the window. I didn't make a sound. the buck was very jumpy like someone was after it and it jumped down to the neighbors yard and hung around for about an hour before taking off.

when the roads are treacherous the ones you have to watch out for are the drivers that think because they have an suv they can drive fast and nothing will happen. they are the ones who lose control and crash into everyone. today started out with rain and with the rain falling were the most gigantic snowflakes i have ever seen. then it warmed up a tad bit and a lot of the snow turned to slush. now tonight it is cold again and the slush has turned into sheets of ice so tomorrow morning will be very bad for driving. at least we haven't got the big winds that were predicted

love Boo Boo

  Hi Pearl and Silver
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the temperatures of highs of 33 degrees and lows of 26. we are at 32 right now.Mom got us up and fed and cages cleaned out.Candida and Dixie got to sleep with Mom and Kallie got to stay in his sleeping box in the tv room all night.After Mom got us all settled she got dressed with her warm clothes on and boots and went out to the garage to start tackling the deck and walkway and mail box and as she opened the garage door there was skin bro tackling her side of the driveway and was she ever so glad to see him!While he was working on the driveway,Mom walked around to the other side of the house,she had to walk in the street and down our street to get there to start the walkway and mail box.Mom could barely get a small path made as the snow was so deep and so high and she made a small path all the way up to the deck and found one stair at a time and by the time she got to the top of the deck skin bro was down by the mailbox making that better and larger so the mail truck will fit in to get to the mail box.Then skin bro took over cleaning off the whole deck and he even cleared the snow off the top of the birdhouse and opened up the other entry hole for them.Mom went back inside as her arms were really aching at that point.Skin bro finished the deck and the walkway and Mom made him breakfast of waffles and strawberry shortcake coffee.Then dad called and wanted to know if skin bro would help him give his car a jump start as it wasn't working and had been in the snow for three days and skin bro said he would and hung around with Mom til 3:00pm when dad called and said he got someone at work to help him so skin bro left and Mom got dinner in the oven.Now dad called Mom and told her that he needed her to come up and bring some antifreeze and distilled water from home as his car started smoking and was running very hot so now Mom has to leave and drive on these awful roads to bring dad the stuff and she's so hoping that his car will work with this and it won't be anything more serious.Well,Mom went up and the roads were treacherous and slippery,she even slipped and skidded on the road in front of our garage.And the roads into town were no better,she was so happy that it didn't take dad too long to fill his car with the antifreeze and distilled water and it was really getting dark as they were heading home again,the snow piles were so high you couldn't see around them and it was quite dangerous with those cars that didn't even put their lights on when it was dark.Mom is hoping she just doesn't have to go out tomorrow.When dad came home she made him pork tenderloin,mashed potatoes and mixed veggies.He took his shower and went to bed as he has to get up at 4:00am and he's still on the twelve hour work schedule til further notice.Maybe Mom can get to her house chores tomorrow.Maybe clean up the coal stove?
Oh how I wish that we could just send you all 30 inches of this stuff you wouldn't have to worry about a droug

  Hi Pearl & Silver,
that is a good idea to allow the teams to pick the players that they want to do the media day...

Mom is really getting excited about the Super Bowl...only a couple of days away now.

We have been continuing to have cold, dreary, foggy, and misty weather here. We haven't seen the sun for a long time now...

Nothing much new here, glad to hear that your mom is enjoying her week off...

Gentle wing hugs, love, and a vote from your protector and friend...Chica ♥

  HI PEARL N SILVER
OH IT WAS A COLD AND VERY WINDY DAY TODAY. MOM DROVE DOWN TO TAKE CARE OF TEH KITTIES. EVEN THOUGH WE DIDN'T HAVE SNOW IT WAS JUST SO WINDY AND COLD TO WALK. MOM THEN WENT TO THE GYM AND GOT IN A GOOD WORKOUT.

G-PA IS BEING VERY CAREFUL BUT HE DOES WAY TOO MUCH. HE BURNS CALORIES FAST SO HE CANNOT GAIN WEIGHT. HE IS STAYING AT 130 POUNDS BUT HIS BODY IS STILL GETTING USED TO IT. HE SAYS HE DOESN'T HAVE THE STRENGTH THAT HE HAD BEFORE THE SURGERY. HE KEEPS WORKING OUT TO BUILD UP HIS STRENGTH.

MOM WILL PUT OFF HAVING BACK SURGERY FOR AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. SHE HAS TO HELP CARE FOR G-MA AND TAKE HER TO ALL HER DR APPTS. MOM WILL JUST GET THE EPIDURALS WHEN IT GETS BAD ENOUGH.

60 DEGREE WEATHER WOULD BE ABSOLUTELY PERFECT HERE.

HAVE A GREAT FRIDAY

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Always seems to be the beginning of the year some spring /summer stuff slowly starts showing up and more and more winter stuff goes on clearance.
Nine years is way to long for rule abuser to keep getting away with her games.Think a big reason why she has lasted this long is because the last head administrator brushed a lot of stuff under the carpet and didn't document everything. I will keep you posted on what happens. Have a good night.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
That is a bummer that dad threw the egg crate away but it wont take long to have another one and then your mom can fill it up with goodies for you two.
Today we anxiously watched to see some finches and new fids come to eat the suet that mom made and dad hung out. All we got was a bunch of black birds and they were here off and on all day long. The only time they didn’t show up was when a hawk was sitting in the tree waiting on them to come back. Once he left they came back and by the end of the day both of the containers were empty and nobody got to eat but the black birds! Dad said he will hang them down on the trail and feed those birds down there. Mom doesn’t think she will be making any more suet and dad can just stick to feeding the wild birds the food he has been feeding them. ”Dear Winter, I’m breaking up with you. I think its time I start seeing other seasons. Summer is hotter than you.” V4U Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Come visit me, Gus --Chi chi ♥ RIP & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..
