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 guys
Mom had a tough time picking theme songs - she had soooo many ! Might have to do an extra week !

Even though it was hot yesterday, it wasn't humid so the only time the a/c was on was when mom was fixing dinner . . . I helped her do some laundry and we played. Another day the two of us just spent together :)

Today is a different story - off the folks are going to the g'parronts . . . at least there's that great market near them so I know mom will come home with some yummy things for me ! Not tomatoes of course, those we just have to open the back door to get !

Have a great Saturday :) love to all my friends ! Cookie

HAPPY TGIF DAY

mom decided to take a break for a little bit and go to the nearby county pool. it was a beautiful day and not too hot but nice and sunny. when she got there they closed the pool because a doody was spotted floating in it. last week when mom decided to go to the pool just as she got there they closed it because they found someone floating in the water. mom doesn't know what happened because there was nothing in the news about it and nothing on the internet. there sure were a lot of police and ambulances called so maybe the revived the person.

love Boo Boo

Well, they only help with the selling part. Then the title company does the closing. Mom can't wait until that is over!!! Then things will calm down some and we can just pack everything away. I think the kitchen will be the last part ... I do need my food and treats!
Today was 79 and cloudy. It rained a little and then the sun came out. By late afternoon, we had a mini t-storm with sun after. Then a little rain at dinner. Not a bad day. The parronts got a lot done with my supervision help of course. I think I deserve an extra treat for all that work!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
This morning was another bright hot sunny morning with the highs for the day being 86,the lows of 67.At 7:00pm its 81 degrees.Mom got all the trash collected and the recyclables put in her car then she got us all up,cleaned our cages and fed us and swept our room,then took our trash out to the car.Then she got Dixie all harnessed up and got him in the car seat and then Mom and Dixie took off for Nana's.Once there,Dixie got settled in his cage in the sun room and Nana gave him a good breakfast with scrambled eggs.Mom loaded Nana's trash and recycs in Nana's car along with all of our trash and they took off for the dump,from there they went to the Thrift store to find a baby gate for Bella,so Nana can let her out more often,but there was none there,from there they went to the bank,then Roche Bros. grocery store where both Mom and Nana got a few things,then to Stop&Shop where they got a few more things that were needed and on sale.They went back to Nana's house and had a nice lunch of tuna and salad that Nana made,with Mom's chocolate zucchini bread and rum raisin ice cream for dessert.Dixie and our cousins all got some fresh fruit of apples,oranges and cranberries for our snack.Then Mom and Nana were trying to figure out how to untangle an old hockey net of skin bro's to use for a barrier for Bella but after they both worked on that and got it to work out a little,Nana decided not to use it as Bella may have gotten herself caught in the netting part of it.It was 4:00pm and Nana sent Mom and Dixie home before the traffic got too bad.When Mom finally got home,she unpacked the car and put everything away,then went to clean our cages and give us our snacks as our Dad just got home himself. Mom then made Dad leftover elbow macaroni with butter and cinnamon and sugar for dinner.They sat on the deck and we were able to all go out and join them and enjoy the last of the sunshine and watch all the wild birds coming and going from our yard.We got to stay outside and enjoy the view til around 7:00pm.
I agree with you that the 80's are too hot but are much better to deal with than those 90's!Mom took her reusable water bottle with her today and kept it in her large cooler bag.She had put it in the freezer overnight and by the time she was ready to drink from it it was partially thawed out and it was nice and cold!Please thank your sweet Mom for the wonderful idea!
So far the pizza box is working and Candida can't get to the grate,Mom doesn't mind cleaning up the mess she chews as long as she can leave knowing Candida will be safe and not get her head into the grate again!
Mom loves those farmers markets,she went to the ones in Boston years ago and got lots of greyt fruits and fresh veggies at such greyt prices too.It sure was hard hauling all that she bought back on the trains though!We have farmers markets here but they are always opened when Mom isn't going out!Mom will put our soggy pellets in the oven to crisp them up a bit,she'll use the toaster ove

  HI PEARL & SILVER!!!
Well the humidity has dropped here and although it is in the low 80's it is quite pleasant..So hope you are having the same kind of low humidity and that your temps are in the range that you are able to feel comfortable if going outside..Because it sure is not when you have to go from a/c house, work etc to a/c car..

Mom certainly gets a lot of enjoyment watching the birds at the feeders and makes sure Dad fills them daily since getting the seed is not to far to travel for it...

Mom did get good results from the Cardiovascular Surgeon..He was happy with the results..But also told her he still wants to keep a close watch on where the stent was inserted in the vein and make sure the blood is flowing like it should...So she is okay with that..

Have a great Friday....Pecked a V4U...Many birdie wing hugs to both of you..Love you 2 buddies, Stormy :o)

Upper 80's is to warm for my mom too good to get thise errands done early to avoid the hottest part of the day. Still pretty windy here today next week looks to be beautiful here with highs in the 70's and lows in the 50's.
Bet it would be very surprising for some to see a fid in the window.Bet she was relieved to see it was me and not a human. Have a good evening.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Guess dad never paid any attention to the water bowl till mom stressed it. I have a water bottle and the water bowl too. I usually drink from the bottle and wash my beak off in the bowl and mom buys spring water for me for drinking or cooking my food with. We have city water but have a filter on the spigot but mom never takes a chance with that.
The humidity has finally left and its such a beauty of a day today! This morning I got my bath and then mom and I went out on the porch and I got a nice sunbath too. Mom read the paper while I enjoyed the sun on feathers. After a while we came back in the house and mom fixed my lunch and while I was busy chowing that down mom shut my condo door. She said she was going for a feather cut and would be back soon and she really wasn’t gone long which was nice. I spent the rest of the afternoon keeping an eye on mom so she didn’t take off again LOL After dinner tonight mom and I went out side and sat a bit. I was in my outside condo but just on the porch since the sun rays were about done with any way. “No matter how busy life gets. Wildflowers will still spring up in the middle of no where”.

  Hi Pearl & Silver
No sunbath today, but it is the sun's fault, not Mom or me. Mom leaves for the gym at 9:30 on Fridays and it was already 78 degrees out there. By the time she got home it was cooking. So she jumped in the shower really quick, and then came to sit with me before leaving for her therapeutic arthritis massage. That was supposed to be my sun bath time, but I will take mommy time anywhere.

Our new fridge (bought on 2/16/15) has already got problems. The ice maker stopped working last night, and in this weather you need ice!! Mom called Sears Service, and the lady had her pull out the ice caddy and dig around up above it. There were 4 cubes stuck in there, and Mom didn't think that could be it. However the lady on the phone said give it a couple of hours, and if it didn't start making ice to call back and schedule a free service call. Guess they do their best not to send anyone out if they can help it, and who knows it just might work.

  Hi P&S
Mom started some mint under one of the shrubs. Mint goes into tabbouleh so its one of the things mom makes a couple times per year.
Other than cooking the quinoa, its just cutting things up.
Mom agrees, she likes the 70s for comfort--we may get one of those soon.

Mom is just watering with the watering can, she decided not to take any chances.
I love my new pic, Aunt Rose made it for me for guessing the theme on Name That Tune.
Today mom was assigned the Avian Nursery with 3 other people. It was great, because they had all the cages cleaned before mom left! That rarely happens in summer, when everything is full. Mom cleaned and fed robins (lots), an oriole, a couple of mockingbirds, a few crows, some ducklings, a killdeer, and some jays. She loves that place, there are always birds in there she hasn't seen up close before. Today it was the oriole.
When she went to the pool, they weren't letting anyone in the water because there was no chlorine in there. It took a couple of hours to get the pump fixed and the level where it should be, so mom only got in the water for a few minutes before it was time to come home and blog.
I hope you are having a wonderful day, getting some sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's going to be a billion degrees here again!hahahahahaha One month of summer to go and hopefully my rain will come back!
Russell Wilson is going to be a Seahawk until 2019!!! I guess he knew how much this 12th bird wanted him to stay! He is going to get a gazillion dollars! Well close to that I think! Now we have to worry about whether or not they have the money to keep the other players! I'm sure they make a whole bunch of money on merchandise so I think they can afford it! The players jersey's are 100$ each and this state is filled with people wearing them!
Training camp opens today and Taima is there! I can't wait to see the pictures! I follow him on Facebook and love to see all his pictures. Wish I had a wing span like that!!!
Mom got part of the ad prepped last night. The other lady is on vacation until Monday so mom had to do both ads. She still has hers to get done tonight. She didn't have to make too many signs yet. She only did the one part last night because she is still trying to catch up on the clearance since she was off during the week. They put bib tags in front of the clearance towels but they still need to be individually marked. Mom hates doing the towels! Unfold, sticker, fold! She has a nose full of fuzzies by the time she is done!!
Have a great day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Navajo code talkers conclusion
Recruiters visited the Navajo rez and selected 30 code talkers. One dropped out so 29 started the program.Many of these were young Navajos who never left the Rez,making the transition to military life more difficult.Yet they perserved.
They would work night and day helpingto create the code.Once the first 29 were finished,two remained behind to train future Navajo code talkers.
The program was successful.The entire Navajo Nation had 50,000
people.By the end of the war 420 Navajo men worked as code talkers !!!

I salute all the Navajo Code talkers and our U.S soldiers. Please say a prayer for our military. They work hard to protect all of us and our freedom !!!

Much love to all of you

It's Blue and Jewel.
The power outage was a scheduled repair outage. Not related to the last one. Yes, the theater was cool. And they got free popcorn.
Not a lot got done yesterday. After mom and dad finished feeding us they started working on dinner. They put pork shoulder strips into the Ninja and seared it. Then added garlic and onions and BBQ sauce and let it slow cook for hours. It must have been good because there's none left.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 87 and a low of 66. Mom and dad will both be working at the police station. There's a special presentation at the police station tonight. One of the Orange Co. Sheriff's helicopters is going to land in the parking lot and then one of the La Habra K9 officers will receive a special award for catching a really nasty bad guy. Dad is going to video tape the event for the department.
Hope your day is good.

The humidity is gone ! Even though it's still supposed to hit 90, it shouldn't be too bad . . . yesterday seemed the worst of all until it got dark as midnight around 4:00 and the thunderboomers barreled through dumping oodles of rain on the house -

Busy weekend coming up - tomorrow is visit the g'parronts day and then mom promised my Laura to go out on Sunday shopping a bit . . . luckily mom doesn't need anything so she'll be the barometer for Laura's wallet ! har har har !

The next 18 days will be very stressful, then it will be just us and all the finishing packing. But after the estate sale and closing, we will see how much will be going. But, we will be renters in our house.
The last couple days have been very windy. Today we started our cool down. It was 80 and maybe Friday will be 80 but then we will end up at 70 in a week. I guess summer is over :(

Think the air quality was ok here too today.
Another hot humid day here again today. There was rain but it went South of us so we didn’t get any here. I didn’t get a sunbath today either but hopefully tomorrow early in the morning when its not real hot then maybe. Today mom went to visit her sister awhile. I wasn’t too happy about that but at least dad was home so that meant I wasn’t in complete lock down then so that was good. Dad even changed my water when I got it a bit dirty so he is getting better at that too. “No matter how busy life gets. Wildflowers will still spring up in the middle of no where”.

Its good that your parronts got to get out before the heat got to be too hot and unbearable.This humidity is just awful here.Mom hates putting our pellets in our dish because they just get soggy with the heavy humid air.Mom only now just puts a pinch of pellets in our dishes now until this weather gets better,soggy pellets are so disgusting to eat!The laundry is also a hot thing to do especially if you're using the dryer.Your sweet Mom sure was busy today.My Mom knows what that's like to have to do so many things in a day.My Mom is hoping to do the laundry this weekend and get it out on the line.The last time skin sis was here and did her laundry they wound up doing double the work,taking it off the line and putting it in the dryer.Mom hates using the dryer in the warmer months to save on electricity especially from this past winter,we still owe quite a bit on our electric bill.Usually at this time they are owing us,not this year.
Mom hasn't been able to get to the Stop&Shop gas stations lately as she's been going to Hyannis and into Falmouth.The last times she was at the Stop&Shop gas station she never got any gas points savings.When you do get them you do save per gallon on the cost of the gas though!
That's a greyt idea to take a bottle of water with you in the car when its hot out.Mom always usually takes her cooler with her with the ice packets in it when she goes grocery shopping.Mom will have to start doing that as there's been plenty of times she's been stuck in traffic being very thirsty!
So far the flattened out pizza boxes are working for Candida,she's not getting down to the grate that way and Mom doesn't mind the mess,better to clean up the mess than to have an injured fid or worse!
This morning was another hot bright sunny morning with the highs for the day at 85 and the lows of 70 for tonight,right now its 81 and partially cloudy with a breeze out there.Mom got us all up,fed and cleaned our cages,and swept the floor.Then she scrubbed both bathrooms and was contemplating on vacuuming the house but decided against it for today as its too hot to be running a hot vacuum only to make the house even hotter.Mom collected the trash for tomorrow and put the recyclables in her car.It doesn't look like we'll be getting outside again today because of the high humidity.Maybe tonight for dinner when the sun is getting ready to leave the sky and its a lot cooler we can join the parronts for dinner on the deck.Its a very uneventful day here and Mom and all of us are happy for that.Lately having a nice quiet boring day with Mom while she works around the house it quite alright with us!Its more than alright with Mom,she looks forward to these kinds of days!
The three tiels all open their wings up wide for a big group tiel wing hug and hold on tight savoring their 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 too!Loving you always and forever,Peepers

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Yay! I got outside for a sunbath, and Mom was just about to give up on me too! She had tried putting a piece of my favorite oatmeal cookie on the fork of the perch like she did with the tater chip. (I am not allowed more than one little piece of a chip per week.) Well, Mom was reading her kindle, glanced up, and I was in there chomping away. She got up verrry slowly and closed the lid on my carrier. Then we went outside and had a very nice sunbath, Mom fed pine sawdust to Ms Gardenia Tree (I know, sounds yucky, huh?) and tried to give me nutriberries but I wasn't interested. I just sat quietly enjoying the view, and after 45 minutes we came back inside. And guess what? I sat in my carrier for another 10 minutes after we came in even though the top door was open. Go figure.

Then Mom read her emails and I sat quietly on her shoulder and read them too. She gets a lot of stuff about the environment, and she answers every one and signs all the petitions. She really loves Mother Earth.

After that out came the nasty sucking machine and the mop for the kitchen. I don't know who hates it more, me or Mom, but my bet is on me. At least she only uses the non-electric sweeper in my room. That vacuum is scary!

Only today and tomorrow for Panther's campaign, so don't forget to get over to his page and peck his vote button! He has shared a very wonderful view of the life of the Northern Cheyenne, and we need to show our appreciation. A little wish to the universe for a speedy recovery for Aunt Staci wouldn't be amiss either.

  Hi P&S
Our mom took off this morning to go to the MI Farmers' Market on the capitol lawn. Always an interesting trip for her. She goes to stock up on gluten free BBQ sauce that shows up there. She also purchased some heirloom tomatoes for dad. She is going to make quinoa tabbouleh. Dad likes that. Mom left for the farmers' market shortly after dropping off skinsis. THEN she had to wake up skinbro and go get the van, which they dropped off to skinsis so she could drive herself to her 2nd job. Mom left AGAIN to go to the grocery store cause she forgot parsley is a key ingredient in the tabbouleh. So, we are going to not have much time for blogging.

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I think it's hot just about everywhere now. I think we are going to break the record for the most days over 90 today. I guess they have been keeping the record for about 120 years.
Seahawks training camp starts tomorrow and Taima the hawk is coming over for a meet and greet! Wish we could get up there to see him but mom has to work the whole weekend. Everyone is very excited for football to start again. It seems rather dull around here without it!
We are finishing up laundry and getting things ready for mom to go back to work tonight. It's not much fun but I do have some new toys to keep me occupied!
I hope your day is just fabulous!! Stay cool and enjoy it!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hey Buddy's
I'm still trying to avoid the bucket !!! Rain is good but the heat and humidity that comes with it needs to go !!!

Happy Thursday !!! Did I throw you off with those questions ??? It was all in fun and games heehee !!! I did say I was going to surprise you...Raffi got every answer right !!! Congrats Raffi!

In honor of our U.S military...Today I'm going to talk about Navajo Code Talkers. They are from the Navajo nation...

In U.S history the things that happened to us Native Americans were tragic.Invaders and settlers took most of our lands and misunderstood our culture and killed us in the thousands.
Then during World War 2 ,the U.S goverment needed our Navajo Brothers to help.And though they suffered greatly from this same government our Navajo brothers proudly answered the call to duty.

Communication is very essential during any War.
Codes were often used,but broken.In 1942 a man named Philip Jonhston thought of a code that would be un breakable by the enemy.
A code based on the Navajo Language...

Be here for the conclusion tommorow...
Thank you for your votes
Love
Panther

PS Watch wind talkers starring Nicholas Cage.Awesome movie about the Navajo code talkers !!!

Come visit me, Jedi luvs Cheyenne forever...Thanks for botd...., Snowflake luvs her Apache..., Tweety luvs Princess... & PANTHER...THANK YOU FOR BOTM !!!.

  Hi Pearl, Hi Silver
It's Blue and Jewel.
Mom and dad went to the movies and saw Entourage. Dad didn't care for it. He said it was dumb.
We had a power outage last night. It lasted about 3 hours. Now poor dad has to reset everything. So this will be a short blog today.
The high will be 89 and the low will be 66, with a chance of rain.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Today is a beautiful summer day, but it didn't rain like it was supposed to this morning. Mom will be at the pool today again, then out to dinner with her sis. Sometime today is cage cleaning, too, as garbage pickup is tomorrow and mom noticed some raggedy looking toys here and there. I hope you are having a great day today, getting lots of love and good weather. Hugs, Falco

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

  HI PEARL & SILVER!!!
Today so far it is cloudy with a slight breeze blowing keeping the temps down a little..We are suppose to have T-Showers most of the day and when they leave the area the humidity is going to drop some..Wait & see if that happens...We have been able to just have our windows opened at night and there is a great breeze blowing in..No fans or a/c needed..Yeah it sure would be nice to see the lake from our house..It seems like your area where you live is one of the better places in California to live..As ours is here(only in the summer though)in the Pocono's of Pa.

Wow the bird activity here every day is something..Dad has to fill the one feeder almost daily..Good thing the Tractor Supply Stores carry the 40 lb.bags of sunflower oil seeds and there is a store about 15 miles from our house..

Mom & Dad must be heading out for a 1 1/2 to 2 hour drive today to see her cardiovascular surgeon for a follow-up on a procedure she had done on Saturday..We hope she gets good news from him...

Have a great Thursday..Pecked a V4U...Lots of birdie wing hugs to both of you..Love you 2 buddies, Stormy :o)

  Hi guys !
YUCK ! Last night was a cold sandwich supper in our house - I got the first bite of cherry tomatoe right out of the back yard :) Yum !

Daddy was driving down our road yesterday and got worried cause there was a small bird in the middle of the road. He pulled over and saw it was a blue jay fledgling . . . he walked over to urge it back to the grass so it wouldn't get hit. Then he sat in the car (in the heat with the engine off so it wouldn't be spooked) for almost half an hour to make sure its mommy was around . . .

Hope you're staying cool out there ! love Cookie
