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!

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver!
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I just love your profile picture! You guys look kind of scary!!! Would it be okay if I copy it and put it in my gallery??
The new computer is up and running. Dad put Window 8 on it so mom is scrolling around like a lost puppy!! She has pretty much figured our how to get to where she wants to go so that is all that matters. The living room still looks like we've been robbed but mom and I will be working on that today.
I left the room when dad was building it because there was just too much stuff and I was getting very upset! He shoved the old computer and monitor in front of my playcage!! That was the last straw so I went to climb around my night cage and clear the dresser off for mom! I even shoved my Hello Kitty lunch boxes off! I know it was a big help!
Mom's uncle does Ancestry research and someone sent him pictures of the graves of mom's Great Grandma and Grandpa. They are in upstate New York by Medina. Mom went there when she was a little kid but doesn't really remember much. It was very cool to see it now though.
I hope you enjoy your day! I'm off to help clean the living room up! We can't even turn the fireplace on at the moment because of all the stuff that is in front of it! It has gotten colder here in the last few days so we might actually need it!!
Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!

  Hi Pearl, hi Silver.
It's Blue and Jewel.
Dad watches the USGS webpage. There are several small earthquakes every day that are not felt.
We don't know how dad did it but he got all the stuff he cut down the other day, cleaned up and put in trash cans. Everything's filled up again but at least it's all cleaned up. Mom worked at the police station so she wasn't home to call him for something every five minutes.
Dad picked up his uniform from the cleaners yesterday but they forgot his pants. They said they'd have them ready today. Wonder if anyone would notice if dad didn't have his pants?
Today is a "work around the house" day. Guess dad will probably be mopping floors.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 82 and a low of 58.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

Thank you for congratulating me for winning Bird Of The Day. :) Mayo and Marigold said that the crown looks really good on me but that sometimes I am too loud and don't behave like a princess. Oh well, I am wearing the crown proudly today so they better just get used to it. LOL :) From, Dandy

V4U today. It was fun hearing about furball. Sounds like that dog is not shy when it comes to eating. Same with our hounds. Do you know that they expect broccoli each day? Yes, it's true. Mom always gives our flock the very top part of the broccoli, and the bassets excpect her to throw the rest of it to them. They are good at catching it, too. LOL :) Have a good weekend.

  Morning fellows !
The weather guessers were WRONG again. Yesterday was not sunny, although it didn't rain anymore, we didn't see any sunshine either - and it didn't get into the 60's like they said ! It was chilly and in the mid-50's. Hopefully today will be nicer since the parronts are heading to the orchard for apples :) Me ? I'll be resting up for the Halloween Milonga !

I even took a great big splashing all over the room and daddy bath yesterday ! So I'm clean ! Have a fun day :) love Cookie

HAPPY TGIF DAY

tonight when mom had Cori me out for our playtime Cori decided to shred a egg carton. she wasn't wasn't content to just shred it on the bed and had to drag the whole thing up on moms shoulder and shred it right by her ear. her tail was right in front of moms mouth and her body was in front of moms eye so she could only see with one eye to watch tv. she had to turn the volume up super loud so she could hear the tv over all Coris shredding noise. periodically Cori would stop shredding and grab her giant rubber ball with the bell in it and throw it at me .I was sitting on the cat scratching post watching the whole time, and as soon as Cori picked up that ball i hopped all the way across the room, so Cori never managed to hit me with it Cori shredded the whole thing and mom was completely covered in shred dings. i couldn't believe the giant mess Cori made.

love Boo Boo

Well, it's still very slow for me tonight. I hope it gets better for the Milonga.
I'm sure you noticed in the PP pics that most people were wearing jackets and coats. Mom should have taken one with her!!!!
It's too cold and damp here to do anything ... we are boring today!
We might make it to 50 with sun for the weekend ..YAY! Today, a blue jay came to the patio door for peanuts. He stood there and looked in until mom put the peanuts out. How smart is that!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
We woke up to a dark cold dismal rainy day for the fourth day in a row and the temperature was only 52 degrees.Mom packed the car with the trash and recyclables and then she got Dixie in his carrier and off they went to Nana's where they went to the dump and then to Shaw's to get some of the things that were on the 3day sale there,including ice cream and some baby spinach for salads,Mom got thirteen cans of coffee that was marked down to $1.50 each for dad for the winter and those long nights when he does an all nighter .Both Mom and Nana got some chicken tenders on a BOGO to make a meal with and a few other things,then they went to TJ Maxx and got a few things there on the mark down rack.Mom got a little basket for Dixie so he could sit on the car seat without falling off,its something to use in the bathroom or kitchen to put things in and suction cup it to the wall,but the suction cups were missing,and Dixie would be comfortable with a soft towel or blanket put down on it and riding in it.Then from there they went to Walgreen's and Roche Bros. for the sale they had on Celeste pizza for one so Mom can make a fast Saturday night dinner for dad,they were 69 cents each.By the time they got home it was after 3 o'clock and while Nana made up a salad for them to eat,they hadn't had lunch,skin bro came over and he joined them for lunch,Mom helped to put away Nana's things and gave Dixie his next dose of meds.It was so cold in those grocery stores and Nana's car has no heat,so it was a really cold ride all the way home!When Mom was driving home the skies were really dark with blackish clouds and it was beginning to rain again,Mom made it home just in time before it came down on her and right before it got too dark out there!
We still can't figure out what the problem is with the email not going out to you when its correct,like you said it has to be with the mail service!
Those cupcakes looked sooo good and the picture even made my Mom's mouth water!
Do I so wish that we could mix up our weathers so that we could share in the sunshine and you can have the rain that you so need there!
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

Well we soon change the clocks so mom thinks both of us will be able to sleep better then LOL. Oh yea Chi chi always stayed up till mom and dad went to bed but I always went to bed earlier before.
We may not be on BC tomorrow evening. Today skin sis called and said when the grand took her bath last night the knob broke to pick the stopper up. Dad told her to take the screws out of the plate and see if there was anything broke she could see in there. She called back and said she couldn’t see anything so mom and dad went over. Dad had to take the back off which is in a cupboard so all skin sis towels was all over the floor. Mom picked stuff up and put them away while dad tried to fix it but dad says he doesn’t have the plumber tools to do it with so skin sis has to call a plumber now. “The only thing wrong with fids, is that they can’t live forever.“ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Pearl Hi Silver
I like those oldie but goodie pictures that's what most of holiday ones are.
I would probably guess the window washing could be tied together with over all building maintenance like you said but you never know some of those buildings are pretty big and could take all day to clean the windows. Then again don't think the windows would need washing every day.
Those nail bitter games are fun to watch but can make your stress level,blood pressure all go up when it's your team your watching and cheering for.Have a good night.

Sorry it's been so long since we've written. Mom had been having some rough times and we aren't allowed on the computer by ourselves. I can't see why not!

Anyway, just wanted to stop by and say hello (and leave a vote). We hope all is well with you, mom, and your flock. Just know that while we may not write often lately, we are thinking of you guys!

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Thanks for the congrats on reaching 30K votes, but I suspect the only reason I got there is because I have been active on BC longer and all the activity with the milongas. It is appreciated though!

Well, this has been a frustrating day for me. I did not get my sunbath, and it really isn't my fault this time. It wasn't warm enough before Mom left for the gym at 9:30, and it was too warm by the time she got home at 12:30. Yes, she stopped at the post office, but she said it was already too hot when she stepped outside the gym so I didn't get mad at her for that. I did think she could have passed on the shower as soon as she got home though...

Anyway Mom finally remembered to eat lunch today, and we had one of my favorites Lemongrass Chicken. However the reason I like it so much is not just the Asian sauce, but the lima beans and corn. There was corn, but no lima beans! I was robbed!

However now I am sitting on my mom's knee dictating my blogs, and she is home for the rest of the day. She talked to Judy yesterday, so I am probably good for no disturbing by the phone. I think the rest of the day should be good.

Oh, and don't miss your last chance to vote in the costume contest on the milonga page #165848. It shuts down at midnight EDT, and there are several very close races!!!

  Hi Guys
Great Halloween pic! I love it! Mom's hedge clippers fell apart yesterday, they were really old and she thinks the wood handles rotted.
Mom did the RVS room today, but there was only a bat in there. The raccoons were moved outside, where mom cleaned their cages and fed them. They are much easier to deal with outside since the staff decided the best way to handle them indoors was to scruff them to move them. They said it's more sanitary than using a towel. Mom doesn't feel comfortable scruffing large raccoons, so doing the RVS room the past couple of times has been trying. However, they are easy to deal with outdoors, because they don't have to be moved, mom can clean around them.
After leaving the center, mom went to Radio Shack to buy a new phone, as her present one isn't holding a charge for long. Long story short, Virgin Mobile wanted her pin, which she had no idea about, so she had to come home for a few hours. They locked her account, and she can't get into it. She gave them all the other info, and they changed her pin to something she'll remember, but wouldn't let her in to transfer data from the old phone to the new one. She will be making a second trip today to do that. The nice young man at Radio Shack told her to come back in a couple of hours.
Yesterday, mom got all the peony bushes cut back, and one of the roses pruned. There is more work to do on the roses, which might happen today. She is borrowing a wheelbarrow from a neighbor to haul the cut greens to the hillside. She will toss it all down the cliff and let it compost there. It might provide hide spaces for some critters, too.
I hope you are having a good day today, getting some sunshine and lots of love. Hugs, Falco

Yesterday we had 91 degrees and we are looking at 92 degrees today. YUCK !!!
I'm glad that your having better weather than we are.

My mommy got up this morning to drink a cup of coffee and her personal coffee cream was totally gone...
She was mad !!! One of the skin sibs used it all and none of them will admit it.

I think it's warm enough to put them in a tent in the yard and give them an ice chest with water heehee...

Have a cool and comfy day

  October BOTM POST number eighteen
Good Friday morning everybirdie, Jesse here with your BOTM Adventure Post. Just when things begin to look better, and the flag from the BC Castle is visible on the far distant horizon, Spot disappears in down-side Uppsie land.
"Anyone?" Spot cries out loudly. He looks around carefully for any signs of where he might be, but all he can see in every direction is the heads of beautiful white Daisies and the green lush fields. Trying not to panic he sits down under the shade of a large oak tree to think. Putting his wing tip to his chin, he frowns. " Now, since i don't know where i am, how do i know how to get back to where i came from?"
"SPOT!!!!!" Jesse yells as he sees his tail feathers disappear from sight. It's too late, Spot is gone, vanished. " SPOT, come backkkkk"
"Where'd Spot go?" a tearful BonBon asks, rubbing her wing tips togetehr anxiously. "I'm gonna get in trouble if I loose him"
"Don't worry, we'll find him" Jesse says. " Let's search. Everybirdie, spread out and look for Spot. HE was flying up? Down? to the sky and suddenly vanished. there must be an eggplanation. Stay in pairs, and don't wander too far from sight." The birdie hurry to begin their hunt for the missing Spot . Jesse flies upwards towards the ground, and looks in every upside down tree before landing in the sky once more. Sky and BB head towards the biggest cloud to search there. It was the last place they'd seen Spot before he disappeared.
"Dixie, I'm getting scared. Everyone is vanishing. We have to stay really close." Little Angel holds onto Dixie's wing as they look for Spot
"Don't worry LA I will always protect you." Dixie says kissing her softly on the beak. It was then that Dixie saw the little door.
"JESSE! SKY! EVERYBIRDIE!" Dixie yells loudly, "we found something, hurry"
"What is it, did you find SPOT? BonBon asks
"NO, we found a tiny door in this cloud. It was hidden from sight by the white fluffy clouds, but look" Dixie points to a little door in the distance.
"Come on let's check this out" Jesse calls eager to find Spot, and all the others. He waddles quickly towards the door. As they approach they see there are in fact three doors, side by side.
"Now what do we do?" Kaji asks, looking at the three doors. "three doors is never good. One is always holding in some kinda scary monster."
"We could open all three at once and see what lies behind them" Miss Ronnie chirps bravely
"Yeah, come on" BonBon agrees, " Budgies aren't afraid of anything. Miss Ronnie grabs one door knob, BonBon the other and Piddy and Paddy the third, they turn them before Jesse can yell "NO! Wait!"
The three doors open. Behind Miss Ronnie's door, lightening flashes, and rain falls heavily, behind BonBon's the sun shines, and the sound of a babbling brook can be heard, and behind Piddy and Paddy's...

  Hi Pearl, hi Silver.
It's Blue and Jewel.
Yes, there have been several movies based on the War of the Worlds radio broadcast. There was even a TV series in the 80s.
We had three earthquakes yesterday. The first two were less than a minute apart. The first one was a 2.8 and the second one was a 2.9 and we felt both of them. They happened around 3:30pm. The third, smaller quake was around 7pm but we didn't feel that one. It was a 1.3. We sure do hope that we don't have any more.
Dad started cleaning up the mess he made in the yard the other day. He has more than half of it gone but he ran our of trash can space. Today is trash day so as soon as the cans are emptied dad will start again. Last night dad cooked a beef roast and veggies in the Ninja cooker. It came out great. Dad said that there is enough left for lunches.
Today will be almost the same as yesterday. Partly cloudy with a high of 89 and a low of 62.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

Love the cupcake picture! Such pretty cupcakes! Looks like you two are ready to dive into them!
No apple crisp here either.....it still waiting!
So your parronts sit outside and hand out the candy? That sounds like fun. We have done the honor system...we let the kids take their own candy. So much easier that way. However with Lori here...she wants to answer the door and hand out the candy this year!
Have a great day!

  Hi graveyard fellas, love from a scared Jenny
We are heading into our last week of October and for the next three or four days our temps will be in the 70's, can you believe this crazy weather! TGIF to all those who cherish Fridays, we certainly used to when our dad was still doing an 8 to 5 work schedule, but the up side is, he always came home at noon to visit with our Angel when she was alive, those two loved each other so much, it was an indescribable love affair! Most of you know the kind of love I'm talking about! We most likely won't make it to the Halloween Milonga, due to a prior commitment, but we hope you will have a great time, they are always fun! Give my love to all in your home, see ya tomorrow...

I know the parronts are heading out to find a new bookcase for the bedroom and then to the orchard for some apples. That hopefully means something yummy baking in the kitchen for Sunday :)

  Hi Pearl & Silver,
mom wishes she would have had her camera ready but she didn't so no pictures of the deer.

It was raining really hard here today when the parronts came out of the store after grocery shopping. When they got home, dad backed up the truck so it was just inside the garage so that when he took the groceries out of the truck he wouldn't get wet...the sun did come out at around 5pm for just a little while.

Not much new around here, mom is preparing for the winter...dad bought her a really nice Seahawk coat so she'll be warm when she has to go out...

No the parronts haven't been watching the world series so far this year.

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

  Hi Pearl & Silver
The BC has been dragging it's tail feathers. It needs a pick me up! Sooooooooo slowwwwwwwwww.
Both my parronts got a good report from their doctors, finally feeling good again.
Was it ever cold today (34 degrees) ... at least we had sunshine! Looks like the parronts will be getting the outside ready for winter this weekend. Me? Well, I'll be busy making a mess and drinking some hot chocolate ... hehehe. Hope to see every birdy at the Milonga on Saturday.
Hugs
Chyna

Come visit me, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
it turned into a beautiful day in the low 60s with lots of sunshine. mom is slowly brining in the garden ornaments. she brought in one hummingbird feeder and it looks like a squirrel ripped off one of the four feeder tubes with a bee guard. mom will hunt on the internet and see if she can get a replacement. most of the big oaks haven't even started losing their leaves yet.

while out in the yard today mom found a pale green caterpillar with 2 white stripes running the length of its body,. a white furry nutsucket caterpillar and 2 brown fury woolyworms caterpillars. mom placed them in the big juniper. then sadly she brought in my cage.

love Boo Boo

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Mom just can't thank your sweet Mom for sending my Mom the email,she even tried c/ping your email and just placing it on the letter head so she would have it correct and that still never went through,mom is sorry for making your poor mom go through all that trouble just to send you anything!
Thanks for sharing with us those delectable cupcakes with us,we just love the pics of the two of you also checking them out like that!And your Halloween Profile is so awesome!We just love that also!
Dixie just loves music even though its not the music we like to listen to,a little more on the rap side or alternative maybe?Dixie is happy just to be with Mom so he's really well behaved wherever he goes with Mom!
The only ones that go after Mom's earrings or necklaces are me,Mario(Lutino Tiel)and now Candida.The rest of us are good on shoulders and if we misbehave we are made to go back to our cages or the playgyms.I sure do agree with you on that YUCK is right to be made to lie on our backs,no way Jose to that one!Mom was looking at the two little sunnie and Green Cheek conure babies and all she could think of was when Dixie and Kallie were babies,they were quite inseparable and still are even though Dixie can no longer fly around the house with Kallie,he still sits beside her birdhouse and keeps him company as he's not allowed out without Mom supervising him.
It was awful trying to get anything done yesterday on BC,Mom thought that she'd catch us up on some of our blogs before she went out but it took about a good half hour just to get the page to load and then we'd get the URL pages with error etc.Mom had to give it up because she had to leave.At least BC has been behaving today!
We are in for more rain tomorrow and we'll be this way until Saturday sometime.Does anyone know where the sunshine went?It was another day of pouring downpours here and temperatures in the 50's.
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

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
The flannel is on sale now too plus this one that mom wants is a good neutral baby print so can see why it would sell out quickly but mom will just keep looking.
Mom says she doesn’t know what has gotten into me lately. Mom used to put the jungle talk toy and a few other ones that talk on the chair under the table for the night and then I would give her a kiss and get on my night perch next to my heater. Well now I am not ready for bed and if mom lets me be I get off my condo and take the toys off the chair and would play all night long. Mom usually leaves me go awhile and then scoops me up and puts me on my perch and covers me up though I am not happy about that. Mom seems to think my eternal clock is not working right or could it be the dreaded hormone season again?? “The only thing wrong with fids, is that they can’t live forever.“ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

The elevator ride up wasn't very long at all.My mom said it felt like it shot right up to the top pretty quick.She remembers it kind of gave her motion sickness she gets that pretty easy as anyway.

  October BOTM POST number seventeen
Good morning everybirdie, Jesse here once more with your BOTM Adventure Post.
After hiking along the path for a long while, I decide to stop for a moment to rest, and seeing a large rock, I sit down. Well, I look up and see that the grass and trees are up-side-down.
I shake my head, and rub my tired eyes, "I must be seeing things" so peaking another look up, I see that the grass, trees and everything from the downside is now on the up-side. " EEEEEEEE!"
"What's wrong Jesse?" Chyna asks then suddenly realizes she is standing on a cloud in the sky. She looks above and sees what had scared Jesse so much. The trees are above her head. As Jesse and Chyna makes this discovery, it becomes apparent that every other birdie has also realized that they are floating in the air, or is the ground floating?
"Don't panic" Angel says, " trying to reach the rock? Cloud? that Jesse is sitting on. He ducks quickly as a Duck flies by upside down. " Now this is too weird"
" Where are we BB?" Sky asks her, hoping there is a logical answer to why they are now below the ground or above it? Sky shakes his red head, this is getting confusing. " I sure could use a pickle right now?" he says to himself
" It must be " Uppie-Downsie Land" BB answers, not eggactly certain where they were. She looks around at the ground above her. " look, in the distance, I can see the tower of the BC Castle" she points to the very far distance, and the small flag that sits on the top of the main tower. A wave of relief washes through the group of Corn Maze Adventurers. But how to get there from here?
"Look the path is up there" BonBon says to Spot. She tilts her head to see it better.
"How are we going to follow the path, when we are up here, or down here, in the air?" Cappy questions
"If we are upside down then we have to figure out how to get back down? Up, there?" Jenny-Lynn explains, concern in her voice. " I knew I should have brought my cell phone"
Jesse, sighs, scratching his head. If they were now upside down, or down-side up, how could they get there from here? He looked at the blue sky and clouds that carried on as far as the eye could see, then at the ground, the path, the trees above. " I wonder if we can fly down there, or up there? SPOT?" Jesse explains his idea, and Spot agrees to try to fly down or up to the ground to see if he could find a way back to where they belonged. Taking off into the air Spot circles twice then heads for the ground above, but begins to fall towards the sky where the others are watching hopefully from below. Spot hits the sky, ground with a bump, then stands up.
"Where am I?" he asks out loud, brushing the dust off his feathers. HE looks and sees that he is alone, beside a large field of daisies. All the others have disappeared from sight.
"HELPPPPPPPPP!" he calls and his voice echos in the empty field. HE is all alone in some strange place, " JESSE? Poppa SKY?" he calls, but realizes he has disappeared from their sight.

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Busy day for Mom and me today, but that is because my lazy mom went back to bed after giving me breakfast and reading with me for an hour. (She has to make sure she sits upright for one hour after eating; apparently forever.) When she got back up we went outside for my sunbath at 10AM because the heat is back! 88 for a high today, and it was already really warm at 10. The nice lady with the polite doggies came by and chatted with my mom, and I didn't even scream at her. But then she did say hello Kiddo, so I had to be polite back, didn't I?

Then Mom went to get her bi-weekly therapeutic massage and take back a library book. Apparently it is national massage week, so she got an extra 15 minutes free. Nice for her, but less mommy time for me.

But she is home now, and I am perched on her knee dictating my blogs. Mom is mine for the rest of the day. She was planning a trip to the post office, but ran out of time. That will have to wait till tomorrow. Oh no, more time away from me! The humanity!!

Oops! Mom forgot to eat lunch again. Oh well, she will make sure she gets dinner a little early.

Kiddo

  Hey Buddy's
What an awesome Halloween picture. I love it !!!

My mommy came back with three yummy pies. It's to bad you don't have a Marie Calenders near you. If you live near Coco's restraunt they also have a pie sale going on for the same price as Marie Calenders.

The temps are 91 degrees today and will stay in the 90's until Sunday it gets hotter by the day, YUCK !!!

My mommy say's the skin sibs always argue over the most stupid things.
Maybe one of these day's they will grow out of it. They need to hurry before my mommy puts them in the backyard in a tent heehee.

Have a cool and comfy day
(I hope you are having cooler temps than us !!!)

Love your buddy
Panther

Come visit me, Jedi say's Cheyenne's my wife. Happy Halloween !!!, Snowflake's married to Apache...Happy Halloween, Tweety luv's Princess...Happy Halloween !!! & Happy Halloween BC...Panther luv's Coconut.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
You baked goodies? That looks like some special work. Mom has to pack away the porch cushions, too, but they live outside in a big plastic bin for the winter.
Yesterday after mom did some of that yard cleanup, she played with us and did a light cleaning of the cages. Today is a major scrub down, though, so we will all have to rearrange our stuff after she's done. I didn't stay with mom for long yesterday, I was more interested in cuddling with the rope wreath on top of my cage. Willie won the prize for being the most clingy yesterday. He stayed with mom a long time, trying to decorate her tee by making it lacy, then trying out her shirt buttons, too. He preened her hair for awhile then he got bored and went back to his pinata. Peppino is being shy again, so mom isn't forcing him to come with her, but because of past experience, she knows he'll be with her before long. We are all thinking that Bree will be by to trim our nails before long, at least that's what mom is saying.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of scritchies and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Congrats to Kaji!, Peppino, Divo & Falco.
