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
The heat wave finally rolled in, and I got a nice long sunbath today. They forecasted 90, and it was about 85 when Mom and went outside at noon. She kept moving back and forth between the sun and shade, but I just basked in the warmth the whole time. Those two nutriberries didn't hurt any either! And even though it is trash truck Monday, not a single one came by while we were there. Awesome!

Voting on the Hat Contest is heating up. I can now state that every single pic has at least one vote, but that doesn't mean your flock should slack off. If you want your favorites to win, get on over there.

Mom really enjoyed Frost/Nixon yesterday. It brought back a lot of memories of the 70s for her, but even more so she learned a few things she didn't know before. She might just rent the movie now.

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! Dad showed up yesterday even though he told mom he was stuck in Fresno and wouldn't be home until Wednesday! The trailer he has was overweight and not legal to drive and the company told him the would fix it on Monday. They found him another load and he called mom about 1pm yesterday and told her he would be up here about 5pm! Mom was just getting ready to go to bed! He didn't make it up here until 6:30 so mom got a few hours of sleep before she went to pick him up!
Mom just finished Sunday's ad last night!hahahahahaha The lady who does the other part of the home department was still working on her ad when mom left! She works 4am to 12:30pm so she probably got done! There was so much stuff that got put out without any prices that mom spent a bunch of time taking care of that too! They are very fond of putting shippers out and not pricing them. Mom is thankful that period change is only once a month!
Ian went down to work at 6am! He wasn't working! He and a friend from work went to stand in line to pre-order some Amiibo! Ian is nuts! He and his friend knew that the store was only getting 10 of them so they wanted to make sure they were part of the 10! He told mom there were actually 2 people ahead of them!! He said the last ones to get the pre-order were the guys who sell stuff on Ebay. Crazy stuff! I wouldn't get my tail out that early unless there was food involved!!hahahahahaha
Hope your day is just perfect!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Howdy friends, Mikey D here in the Wild West Ghost Town. I wish to thank everybirdie and their parronts for the kind words shared at the loss of my beloved wife-bird Queen Chuey. I miss her terribly and will forever love her, but I also know she is waiting for me to join her one day on that big cattle range in the sky. She would not want anyone to grieve for her too long, she lived each day to the fullest. Ride free my love till I see you again some day!
Hawk-eye stares wide-eyed at the Smith and Weston pointed his way, and slowly stumbles to his feet. One beady eye on Jesse,the other on the door, he cautiously walks towards the opening. At the last second he has a change of heart and makes a bolt for freedom, right into the chest of one Mr. Sky. Not to be trapped easily, he dives between Sky's legs and makes a dash for freedom.
Cappy, is getting bored guarding Black Bart, he hears all of the commotion going on outside. Not one to sit back Cappy checks to make sure the cell door it shut tight and walks outside to see if he sees anything when suddenly Hawk-eye runs smack-dab into him. Cappy grabs hold of the scruffy bandit as the two fly backwards onto the wooden sidewalk. Hawk-eye grabs for Cappy's pistol, but is too slow as Cappy rolls onto his feet so fast he sends Hawk-eye tumblin' over him into the water trough. Cappy lunges after him, pinning his prisoner in the water. "Now, come along nice-like or I'll show ya how hard a Too can bite"
Jesse stands stunned as everything unfolds. Seeing Cappy haulin' Hawk-eye along to jail, he rushes to where Miss Falco is standing smiling happily. "Oh Falco, you're safe. I was so worried they'd try to hurt you. I had to get free and save you my sweet girl" Jesse holds Falco close, thankful they are once more freed and save. Everybirdie on the street cheers when Jesse walks outside his wing around Falco protectively. " After a group-hug the Team matches the remainin' gang members into the jail house from the wagons, lockin' them away for safe keepin'
"You'll stay here. Beakerton Security officers are on their way here, to escort your sorry tail-feathers off to prison." Mikey D tells them before he turns tail and exits the Jail house. The Bird looks on from the top of the boarding house as Jesse breaks down the door of the General store to get to Falco. The Bird turns & disappears back the way he/she came. Ms BB puts away the few things she has & resumes her walk down the dusty windy trail to the ghost town. She can see birds moving in town but can not make out who they are. BB passes a cactus & it moves to walk next to her. Its The Bird in another costume. He/she tells BB about what has been going on in town, mounts her/his burro, & wanders off into the sunshine.
Sky sees BB walkin' in the distance and rides out to pick her up. "You missed all the fun Sweetheart!" he says as he reins in beside her. BB laughs and climbs up into the saddle, " do you think the horse might run outta hay

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Last night we were in lockdown because mom, Aunt Gin, and Jessica went to dinner and a movie. They ate at Houlihan's, a local bar/restaurant, and saw Woman in Gold, with Helen Mirren. All 3 of them loved the movie, it was very good.
Today mom fed the bats again, and there are baby raccoons in the RVS room now so mom got to hear them crying while she was feeding the bats. The staff came in to feed them, so mom got to see a couple of them too. They are so cute, it's too bad they grow up to be such pests. Mom is hoping that the staff can get in touch with the folks that brought in 5 babies. They trapped them in their attic, but mom is still up there. My mom told the staff if they could trap the mom, they could bring her to the center and she can raise her own babies in one of the outdoor pens where they will be safe from human interference.
I hope you are having a good day today and getting some spring weather, cuddles and scritches. It's raining here. Hugs, Falco

It's Blue and Jewel.
We are now sitting on two eggs.
Izzy is a 6 year old Congo African Grey. He lived in Northern California. His mom couldn't take care of him anymore so she searched for a new home for him. She got in contact with Paula in Canada, who knew the La Habra flock and through her, Izzy came to live with us. Right now he's quiet but he likes mom and tolerates dad. There will be many interesting and exciting days ahead for us all.
Yesterday was a day of rest for mom and dad. They are still not feeling 100%. After taking care of all of us they sat and watched TV for the rest of the day. Dad didn't even open up the garage. Hope the car is still there.
Today will be clear, with a high of 87 and a low of 59. There's work to do outside but it all depends on how dad feels.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Glue and Jewel.

  Hey Pearl and Silver!
Yeah....think every knitter has extra yarn! My mom is always giving some away. She is going to start knitting squares again to donate.
Go figure....size 50 inches with a 16 inch cord! Really? What on earth could you knit with that? My dad fixed it so you could change the length of the cords. Mom has a long cord on it....doesn't remember how long..........but the afghan is so big and thick it is swallowing everything up...including my mom! Heehee! She is never going to forget that afghan !
Have a great day!

takes Pearl and Silvers by the wings and leeds them around the birdy castle garden and explains all about the honey bee queen and bees they will be getting soon. Queen Boo Boo Bought them on ebay. first we had to find good spots for the hives. we have built these boxes called supers for the bees. the opening must face the south east so the honey bees can get the early sunlight. the supers are protected from the harsh winds blowing from the north and northwest with plenty of shrubs like forsythia, ilex and juniper. we dont want the little honey bees to get too cold or too hot so we are placing the supers under shade trees so that they get dappled sunlight and not full or direct sunlight. first we built a base with cinder blocks and then surrounded that wit pretty brick so it looks nice. then the super is built with layers of board and planks in a box. we can add on to it as the hive gets bigger but for now its best to go with small. i am very excited about the bees arrival and hope you will be here at the castle when we release them. it will be so much fun. i have to check with UPS to find out the expected shipping date

love Queen Boo Boo

  Hi Pearl & Silver,
mom finally got the pictures of the flowers to load so they are in my gallery...

Mom was busy again today, she gave the laundry sink a good cleaning, did the laundry, cleaned Simon's play stand, did some cleaning in her office, did a little bit of gardening, and then helped dad paint the floor in the sunroom. They decided to do one half of it at a time, that way they didn't have to move all the furniture outside. Mom painted the edges and dad used the roller to do the rest. It is going to look really nice when it is done. They do have to put two coats on it...

It finally got nice today but sure didn't look like it in the morning when it was only 32º. The sun was out and it turned into a beautiful day.

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

Mom will be happy if it's in the 50's and dry! I will ask RaneBeau about the wagering for the Milonga. My mom is so far behind this year. She was sick for 6 weeks and that put her behind. Right now she is thinking of Friday when the small group comes for the KY Oaks. Then the big party on Saturday.
This will be a crazy two weeks around here.
It was a nice day, high 40's and partly cloudy. I was busy helping mom clean the house. I think my condo will get cleaned tomorrow. Our company comes on Friday.
Have a good night.

Mom made the one grand a hat in her school colors and it was verigated so didnt have to keep changing colors. The blue and white she is doing now is the same way and is the other grands school colors. The pink and black is the softball grands traveling team colors and cant get it in verigated so will just do the two colors changing back and forth.
The dentist mom had as a kid was the school dentist and was married to the music teacher and by the time he had filled all moms teeth and ruined others as well found out he had an alcohol problem and the reason for drilling and filling. He lost his license and was gone by the time mom was 18 or so.
Yesterday mom and dad went up to the farm to visit a bit with dads brother since he is here to help his son on the farm. There were baby kittens and the mama was nice and let mom hold one and mom said it was so cute she thought I might like it if she bought it home. Then there was a pony in the barn she petted and it pulls a cart and is all black so its name is Midnight. Lots of chickens, goats and another pony (Midnights mom) and of course a few calves and lots and lots of cows and a few dogs too and cats too. Yep it’s a farm!! The milking was starting so mom and dad left to come home cause the parronts didn’t want to spook the cows and not give lots of milk or cause problems. “If there ever comes a time when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.” V4U. Hugs~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

This morning was a bright sunny morning to start with,the highs being 54 and the lows of 40,its 45 right now, and Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and vacuumed our room,then she was going to get ready to collect the laundry when skin bro IM'd her and wanted to come down and do some baking together,so Mom told him yes she would do some baking with him and while she was waiting for him to come over,she did a big birdie spa on all of us,Dixie and Kallie both got their beaks dremeled and then all five of us got our nails done.We were not very happy to have all that done to us in one day.And then we all got our weights taken on top of all that!
Skin bro came over shortly after that and he and Mom spent the whole afternoon in the kitchen baking MeatBall Casserole and Cranberry Sugar Cookies and Date nut Sugar Cookies.Then when the Meatball Casserole was done they both sat down and had some.Then they sampled some of the cookies they made.Mom cleaned up all the dishes and pots and baking dishes and packed up some of the Meatball Casserole for skin bro to take home with him along with a big box of the cookies that they made.Skin sis called Mom in the meantime and she was missing her Sundays with Mom baking.Mom on the other wing had thought that she would have the day off today. Before skin bro left to go run some errands,he paid Mom back the money she paid for his insurance on Friday.Then Mom finished cleaning up the kitchen and vacuumed our room one more time and the dining room and kitchen and tv rooms.Then dad came in from burning the sticks and twigs and branches and Mom made him dinner from what was left of what she and skin bro made.Mom packed the rest of it up and now she has enough for at least two to three more meals.She will put that in the freezer.Then Mom made dad his lunches for the week.Mom is hoping for a quiet night now and will probably do the laundry tomorrow.
That was really good that your Mom could stay right in her usual spot to blog without disturbing your dad's bro.Mom wishes she could do that but her computer isn't a laptop but a desktop.
How awesome to have such warm weather like that!We are cold here for spring.Mom has plants she wants to plant outside and its way too cold for them right now and now they're talking of us getting a frost and to not plant anything til after its gone!
The three tiels all open their wings up wide for a big group tiel wing hug with Peepers.All hold on tight for a very long time basking in their friendship and love.
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

Just a short blog today, because Mom was gone most of the day. She went to the gym this morning to work out with Becky (Becky just about killed her!) and then zumba. When she got home she jumped right in the shower, because she and her friend were going to see the next play in the series they have season's tickets for. This one was Frost/Nixon, and Mom really enjoyed it. However she didn't get home until 4:30. Now I do want your sympathy, but I have to admit she did spend every spare minute before and after those activities with me. However I think she should just stay home all the time.

Voting in the hat contest has picked up a bit, but every flock still needs to get over to the Milonga page #165848 and do their daily voting duties.

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Howdy friends, Mikey D here. Seems we have ourselves a situation goin` on here in the Ghost Town. With Miss Falco taken hostage by Hawk-eye, and Jesse still missin' there didn't look like much more could go wrong. Well, that was until we were set to bust down that General Store door. Jesse clicks to Sundancer, urging her to move even faster as the Ole Town comes into view, " come on girl, we gotta save Falco!" As they round the bend in the trail Jesse glimpses the scene taking place out in the street. Those mangy birds who'd kept him hog-tied at the mine had beaten him here, and were now holding the BC team at gun point. He reins Sundancer in, and leaps to the ground boltin' to the shadows of the empty black-smiths shop. He peers around the corner to get a better view.
"Jesse" a whisper startles Jesse to his feet like lighten' " it's me THE BIRD" the familiar face steps into the light. "I been hiding' out here, tryin' to figure out what to do to save everybirdie."
"I gotta plan. We're gonna make a distraction. There's only two of them, and when they look to see what's happenin' the Team can take them easily." Jesse explains his plan to THE BIRD. They set off to put the idea into action.
"Bird was I a dumb bird!! I scared off all the guards horses then I gave Jesse Sundancer to get to town fast & help save Ms Falco." BB says as she walks down the hot, dusty trail. "Good thing I have my canteen full of water with me. Its going to be a long dusty walk back to town."
Kaji, Lizzie and Gus stand among the Team, when out of the corner of their eye,they see Jesse and THE BIRD on top of a nearby building, "Ugh you gulls are scruffy, icky characters, aren't ya? I guess you can't help being gulls, but couldn't ya be good gulls?" Kaji says loudly. This gives Jesse the opportunity he needs. Suddenly the street is alive with noise as gun powder filled walnut shells explode everywhere. The two villainous scoundrels wipe round to see what was goin' on. That is all it takes for the Team to move in on them.
Pearl leaps onto the wiry small one's back knockin' him to the dirt. Willie and Peppino grab the tall, rangy Gull. The crowd cheers happily as their would-be captors stand pinned in place. " OFF TO JAIL for you" Mikey D says, pointing his six-shooter in their direction. Kiddo and Hulk escort their "friends" to the jail house to deposit them safely into a cell with Black Bart and his other cronies.
Jesse thunders down the back stairs of the hotel building, his gun drawn, as he bolts across the street towards the door to the General Store. Leaping into the air, talons ready he busts through the door sendin' Hawk-eye flyin' across the room, caught unprepared by Jesse's sudden arrival. "FALCO!" he yells as he sees her smiling at him. " You, rag-mop-bird get up, move it!" He points his gun at him. Don't try anything."

Today is beautiful, sunny but still kind of cool. Mom has 2 public tours at the museum today in Dinosaur hall. She was hoping to get some outdoor work done, but now that she's showered, she will dress for work instead. Later she is going to see Woman in Gold, the movie with Helen Mirren. It hasn't had great reviews, but she likes the cast.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of love and scritches. Hugs, Falco

It's Blue and Jewel.
We have one egg in our nest box. Nothing in the others.
We had some rain yesterday. Not enough to register on dad's weather station but enough to wet down the ground. And dad was out in it. He went to Walmart and Costco and got wet. Not enough to hurt anything but enough to make him cold. Not good when you're just getting over one.
Our special visitor arrived yesterday, just as dad was finishing cleaning up our room. They made a 7 hour drive to get here. Take a look at the first picture in Popeye's picture gallery. His name is Izzy.
Today will be clear, with a high of 77 and a low of 56.
Hope your day is good.

There is a box for knitted squares at our Michaels store.....and also our church knitting group sends tons of squares out to be made into afghans.
Those stupid size 50 needles. Mom had a hard time finding them....got them on Amazon ....from England. And guess what? The size of the cord was 16 inches! My dad remade them for my mom and put a longer cord on them for her!
Have a great day!
Love,
Raffikki

Mom is once again all mine ! Her drama club performance was a rousing success - sold out ! All the kids remembered the lines and hit their marks ! They were even well behaved for the cast party afterwards ! Today she's tired but happy :)

Of course the folks are heading to the g'parronts today for a short while, but I'm OK with even that since the market that carries my sugar snap peas is near their house :)

It's supposed to start warming up to real spring temps today. Sunshine and 60 - about time ! Enjoy your day :) love Cookie

I wake up to discover that Dad bought the wrong bird pellets. All my life I have eaten Roudybush "Minis" ...these fresh pellets are Roudybush "Small". They're huge.

Haven't decided yet weather to turn my beak up at these huge ugly things. Dad is not near any place that carries my pellets so he is going to have to journey for them or order them -so it may be a few days until I get the right ones.
Silly human.

  Hi Pearl & Silver
I just saw the weather for the week. It looks good to me. They say 50 to 60 for the week with sun. There was NO mention of snow or rain! I hope they are right.
The sun was shinning and we had a windy 50 degree day. Dad put the patio furniture out, this is good! My beach chair is ready and my shades are on. I hope this continues thru derby weekend.
Hugs

Oh poor dad's brother having to sleep on the couch!That is the same situation we have here also,we have the eggstra room but no bed or furniture in it!Skin bro had the same problem when he stayed at Nana's he had to sleep on the couch and it was too small for him!He was happy to get back to his own condo and bed!hahahaha!That's so hard for your sweet Momma to have to try and do blogs without waking him but it looks like she did quite well if she was typing to soft snores the whole time!
We haven't had any rain but now they're saying that we may be getting showers off and on tomorrow or Monday,my dad wants to burn some of the branches and sticks that fell in the yard.Burning season is over the 1st of May here and he wants to clean up our yard before any other storm drops debris on our yard.
Mom did get the gift card straightened out and skin bro got to pay his insurance this morning over the phone.Dixie enjoyed his time out with Mom and loved riding in our car seat,she has it modified so he can sit in a little basket while the rest of us use the stone perch to ride.
It was a sunny morning here to start with and then the sun quickly disappeared,our highs for the day were 51 which we never saw and our lows will be 37,its 43 right now and freezing out there.We need some warm sunshine and summer heat here too!Mom got us up this morning fed and cleaned our cages then she took off with dad to run some errands,they came back about an hour later and then my dad fixed the electrical outlet that Mom always uses to plug the vacuum in as it was heating up the plug and it was not holding the plugs in tightly.Now he fixed it its so much better and the vacuum doesn't stop when the plug falls out.Mom vacuumed the whole downstairs and dad's den and our room and then took care of some more clutter.Then Mom and dad took off again but they were home in no time.Mom is making Canadian bacon and pineapple pizza for dinner tonight for dad and we'll get some crust which we love.
The three tiels all open their wings up wide for a big group tiel wing hug and hold on tightly!They are thinking good thoughts for the entire family that Nana and skin sis continue to recover from their surgeries and that skin bro's drama will lessen to give their Mom a more relaxing time.Silver eventually grabs a guitar and begins to strum as Pearl starts to sing Open Arms by Journey!Peepers loves how Pearl changes it to Open Wings and smiles happily as he joins in!
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!Loving you always and forever,Peepers

Mom worked on the hat a good bit today so am sure she will have them done before winter. After this one she is going to try the two colored one to see how that goes.
Mom only has about 3 teeth not crowned and all the others are already done. As a kid she had a dentist that just drilled and filled and by the time he was found out and lost his license mom had a full mouth of fillings!
Today was another too cold day out for me to go out for a sunbath so I helped mom in the house today. We cleaned out the cupboard under the sink. I sat on the chair and watched but didn’t see anything at all interesting under there. Mom has some tomatoes on the kitchen sink window sill and every once in a while I fly over and take a bite of the one. Yet mom puts any my bean/rice meal I wont eat it. “If there ever comes a time when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.” V4U. Hugs~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Mom and I have our daily routine, and since she knows how I like a schedule she pretty much sticks to it. She gets up each morning between 6:30 and 6:45 when Dad leaves for work and we have breakfast. I have my fresh fruits and veggies, and she either has a bowl of cereal with bananas (which I share) or a mug of chicken broth and milk (which I definitely do NOT share!). Then after about an hour she goes back to bed for a nap because she has only had 5 or 6 hours of sleep. Around 9 she comes back and I get my play stand with the treat cups cleaned before she fills them with my pellets for the day and a nutriberry goes into my barrel o' fun. Well, all was moving around just fine this morning, but she forgot all about my pellets! When she finally remembered around 9:30 I was quite annoyed. I scolded her the entire time she was setting it all up, but I forgave her after the nutriberry. Amazing what those things will do to soothe a ruffled feather or two.

Then after Mom and Dad did the Saturday grocery run (good grapes today, YAY~!) Mom came back in, and as she entered my room Dad handed her a Kiddo-sized tater chip! I love those things, and I savored every single crumb. I can be a very messy eater, but chips are one thing I do not waste, since I don't get even my little ones very often. No sun bath today, but any day with a chip in it is a good one.

Voting in the hat contest is off and running, but we didn't have the turn out to vote I was hoping for yesterday. If you want to just use the Hat Avatar in my aviary (or Falco's) to get there, feel free. Remember every flock gets two votes each day: one for a gent and one for a lady. VOTE!!! Actually I know you guys did vote yesterday, and that I can count on you to come back each day. Thanks for your support, fellas~!

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope you are having a fun day!!!
Mom and I watched this clip on Facebook this morning from a news show in Long Island NY. It was about a rescue of 100 bird from a dirty and bad situation. One of the birds, a little sun conure, has what they called Parrot fever. I guess this disease passed from birds to humans because the lady who is fostering her got sick too. They say it is a very rare disease but then the foster parronts said that the ASPC should have tested for it before they gave the birds to foster homes!
Well, if it is that rare, how would they ever think to check for that particular disease???
Luckily the lady and the bird are both just fine!
Mom did a bunch of her ad last night. There are lots of things that stay the same price so mom can switch out the tags early. Mom's ad is usually around 200 hours of work. She had no idea who does the labor report and puts down 200 hours when there are only 24 in a day! It's crazy. This is the period change and it's the biggest. She gets help from the guy who runs housewares and by getting some of it done early, she can get the rest done on time. We sure hope someone printed those signs for your mom!! The guy who helps mom is the only one in a very long time who knows what he is doing! That always helps!hehehehehe
Enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hey Pearl and Silver!
My mom does that too. She has donated a lot of yarn to the church knitting group........and they donate some of the yarn to nursing homes so the residents can knit !
Size 50 needles........... it's like maneuvering broom sticks! Ugh! And I'm worried that the afghan is going to swallow my mom up before its finished!
Have a great day!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Mikey D here, sorry I'm rather in a hurry. We're closin' in on the bird-napper who has taken Miss Falco. Havin' scanned the Ghost town building by buildin' we knew where our friend was being held. Standing together in the middle of the empty, dirt street we glimpsed a ratty hat peerin' out the window of the General Store. The 'tiel frothers, Pearl and Silver are worried about Falco. However, they know how feisty, clever and brave she is even if faced with a hawk-foe." He's the one that better be careful and not underestimate Falco just 'cause she's a hen!" they exclaim angrily.
"We need a plan, we're gonna bust in and save our friend." Mikey D says a frown on his brow.
"I Guess I showed you what for!" Falco grins and awaits her rescue. She knows her friends will be there soon to free her. The look on Hawk-eye's face tells her that he also knows they're comin' for him. He begins to pace nervously, making sure he stays well away from Falco. He won't that happen again.
Kiddo looks across the street at the store, and says "Falco is not a birdy to submit peacefully, and by the time we catch up with them I am thinkin' she will have that nasty ol' hawk tied up in knots!" This causes an loud laughter to erupt from the team as they study the situation.
Jesse smiles as he sees BB slip into the entrance of the mine. She crouches low and makes her way in the shadows to where Jesse is sittin' tied up like a Christmas gift. Pulling her knife, she quickly cuts the rope and the pair make their way out the door of the mine, and wind their way up the hillside to the boulder.
"My horse is tied yonder," BB points in the direction, " you go, I wanta wait here for our friends to return. They've bird-napped Miss Falco!"
Jesse's eyes become pinned with anger. He doesn't waste a moment to say good-bye, as he bolts towards the horse. "I must save Falco!"
Riding like the wind, Jesse urges Sundancer into a fast gallop towards the ghost Town. His mind is filled with thoughts of saving Falco from the clutches of that dirty, rotten Black Bart and his gang of misfits. Someone was gonna pay for this.
Mikey D and Sky take a dozen friends as they begin to move to burst in the front door, others go to take the back door. Inches from the door they freeze. The sound of gun fire ricochets through the town. "'DON"T YA MOVE A WING MUSCLE PARTNERS!" the growling voice of the tall gangly Gull stops everybirdie cold. " Now move away from that ther' door pronto"
"We got 'um boss, we got good" the wiry small bird says, clapping his wings happily in excitement.
Falco hears the commotion outside the door, and grins, "told ya they were goin' for me!"
"Hush now" Hawk-eye says, wavin' his wing in her direction as he presses his ear to the wall to hear better.

Don't forget to vote for your favorite lady's and gent's hats on the milonga page from now to May 7. You can get there through the big hat avatar in my aviary if you don't have the page number.
Okay, this cold weather has to stop soon! Mom was going to work in the garden today, but it's only low 40s outside right now, and really cloudy. If the weather changes, she'll have some time to work outdoors, but if not, I guess it's only laundry today.
That's fine with me, because I'll get to help out by dive bombing those towels to make sure they're fluffy and warm, and walking all over the socks to make sure they look good.
I hope you have a good day, with spring weather and lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Roof Top has a big beak! CAG? Could be.
Our mom and dad continue to get better from their bad colds. We hear less and less coughing. They cleaned the bathrooms, living room and kitchen yesterday because a very special guest is coming today. Got to have the house looking nice.
Today will be mostly clouding, with a high of 69 and a low of 53.

I hope you have a lovely day ! This is my last "I miss mom" day - her drama club production day is finally here and although she'll be gone a lot of it, once it's over, she'll be home from school at a decent hour again ! Of course she has to head out at about 4:00 this afternoon and the cast party doesn't end till midnight (mom and 40+ young teens ? YIKES ! She'll sleep most of tomorrow !)

Plus it's finally warming up - it was just so COLD the last couple days ! And it's almost May ! That means summer time has to be heading in our direction, right ?

See you tomorrow my friend ! love Cookie

  Hi Pearl & Silver
even when we were having the warmer weather mom was feeling very cold which she thought was strange. 70degrees outside and mom was freezing. last night when mom went to bed she couldn't get warm and kept feeling colder and colder. she also felt very nauseous. when she woke up this morning she still felt cold and just felt plain rotten. tonight she has a nasty sore throat and all she wants to do is sleep. she must have picked up a virus.

  Hi Pearl & Silver
As you can see by the pic, the side of the house is in the hill. We had to put up retaining walls in front and back to hold it up and fill in some dirt.
Just one more week until mom's derby party. I hope it gets warm by then! Sun would be nice too!
It was a good morning at the perch today. We had sun and it melted the snow. But, that cold wind came back.
We need some warm temps up here!
