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!

Well, sure we're getting more rain, and on top of that, a HER-A-Cane named Erika. Won't know for sure until tomorrow or Sunday if we're in the path, or if it's going to miss us. It's been 10 years since one hit our area, so we'll just have to sit back and see what happens. King For A Day, R T

Yes they are amazing little birds..They look like they have no tails when they perch on the feeders but when they are flying you actually see it fan out..You certainly do not need the juice being red..Mom read where the red juice has dye in it and not good for them...Hope you are having a great Thursday...Many birdie wing hugs to both of you...Love you 2 buddies, Stormy :o)

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Can't wait to see more pics of the grand ... she sure is a sweetie.
Yeah, been some scary flights for my parronts. Mom's first flight ever was a real scary one!
Oh yes, those two pics are our new house. We should be in next month. Pool party!!!!!
We finally saw some sunshine today. It would have been a greyt day but mom said we were going to visit Dr McDonald to say goodbye. That was fine but then he trimmed my nails and wings!!! That was so unfair!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
That would be so fascinating to see baby skin sis in a side by side comparison with the grand.And that's the sad part because when our skin sibs were little computers were just beginning to be popular and not everyone had one back then!
Mom is gonna make sure that we take some bottled water with them in the cooler.You are so right about that,drinking strange water may get us sick.We have never gone on vacation with our parronts and this is a first.We have gone to New Hampshire for our Bird Shows and stayed in hotels.So we have been for long rides in the car but this will be even further for us.
How wonderful to have 4 or 5 humming birds flying around at once!Mom has always wanted to get a pic of em also but they are so skittish and when they see Mom with the camera they take off so fast!Its so funny to watch them perching on the dead tree limb that over hangs the spare driveway!
Don't you just love those cool nights and mornings?It was so cold here last night and this morning that Mom had to go out on the deck and sit in the sun to warm up!And its so good to have the windows opened to inhale the cool crisp night air!
This morning was a much cooler morning with our highs for the day of 78,the lows of 63 and right now its 77. We have bright sunshine here and it almost feels and smells like a cool fall day.Mom got us all up and as we slept with her last night she didn't have to do much in the way of cleaning our cages.Then she made out some bills to put in the mail and found her suitcases and started to get some things in that.Then my dad came home from working overnight and Mom got him something for breakfast after which he filled up the birdbath with fresh water and fed the wild birds and did a few other things before he went to bed.Mom clipped all of our nails and got some of our things ready to be packed for the trip.She cleaned the bathrooms and is thinking about what to get ready for dinner tonight.Other than that its a boring day here with nothing interesting going on.She video chatted with Skin bro and we are hoping to get out on the deck for some sunshine soon.We did get to join our parronts for dinner on the deck late this afternoon and it was so nice sitting in the sunshine without the high humidity,the dew point is down to 62 now!
The three tiels all open their wings wide for a big group tiel wing hug and hold on tight for a long time savoring their 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
Ps. We may not be able to get on BC tomorrow as Mom needs more time now to finish up the packing and help dad pack the car with everything so we don't forget anything.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
I am so used to just mom and dad here that when we do get company I get excited to see new faces etc. Not everyone appreciates that mom says but I sure dont know why LOL
Today was another cloudy cold (80) day today so needless to say I didn’t get any sunbath again. Tomorrow is suppose to be warmer and sunny the weather guesser said but its hard to believe him. I will see when tomorrow comes around. With company being here mom got a bit behind on the household chores so been trying to catch up again. Then she has been doing the spare room bedding and today she did hers. Of course that meant that dad had to help cause mom wanted the mattress flipped and sure cant do that by herself. Dad even helped to put the clean bedding on too and mom just kept quiet and glad he helped . By the time she washed and hung it all out she was tired and was thankful for the extra help. “Our paths may change as life goes on but the bond between friends remain ever strong.” Left a vote for you my friend~ hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

The good thing about this time of year is that it doesnt tend to get to humid.Then if we do have the warmer days it usually will cool at night not often we have to run the air at night.
My mom sure wishes she could think of a cool invention like that new water balloon thing.She likes watching the show shark tank and some people can really think up some cool stuff.Have a good evening.

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still very pretty here and only in the 80's. Rain is suppose to come back for the weekend and we sure could use it! We are not use to being so dry for so long. Everything is yellow and I want it to be green again!
We are getting laundry done today. Mom has to work tonight but she'll have Friday night off. She is going to the library later to get me more story books and she will see what movies they have in. Friday movie night is my favorite! Even if the movie isn't good I'll still have popcorn!
Ian is done with overnight for a week. I think they are doing girls toys next. They finished up last night even though Ian was there for 10 hours. He's pretty tired today!
It is not right that your mom doesn't get more time to prep for the ad. Mom knows that if you don't prep well the ad is going to be much harder to get done. Mom would love it if her managers had to do the ad once just to see what is involved. They have no idea and mom thinks it would be an eye opener for them!
Mom is only in the store for half an hour when it's open. There are people who come in every morning so mom knows them and always helps when needed. The registers at mom's store are all in the grocery department so mom doesn't have to cashier. She hasn't done it for a really long time so I doubt she even remembers how to sign on!hehehehehe
Enjoy the day and I hope you get to do lots of fun things!

  Hi Pearl & Silver
It is 92 here right now (11AM) and it is supposed to reach 96 around 1, but after all it is August. Mom worked it hard this morning with the walkabout and a pb cookie, and I got outside for my sunbath at 9:30. It was already pretty warm, and Mom sat in the shade the whole time. I liked it, but it was too warm to eat and I dropped both my cookie and the nutriberry Mom brought out for me. However they are still in the carrier, so you know I will climb in there later to get them.

Mom goes for her therapeutic arthritis massage today, and after that she is mine for the rest of the day. She has to do laundry, but it is so warm here (and we are on energy alert) so she will wait until later in the day to do it when it will hopefully be cooler. We have been out of her oatmeal cookies for over a week now, but with this heat there will be no baking going on. Doors and windows all closed, and thank goodness for all the trees and bushes on the west side of the house!

  Hey Buddy's
You got that right! The Crows sided up with Custer and were used for scouts to ambush the women and children of my tribe. They were hated and to this present day they still are!

Ok buddies lets back back to playing in the water. What about playing some basket ball in the sprinkler?

Happy Thursday! As you have noticed my mommy's spelling on a lot of my blogs is incorrect.
I think BC acting up again. When she types my blogs she proof reads her typing and all is good. But once she sends out my blog the spelling changes!
Can any of you relate to that?

The weather geeks on the news say today we will be getting temps of 105. I hope they are lying heehee!!!
I'm trying to stay cool and on what Jenny's blogged me I'm avoiding Rag weeds...Thanks Jen!!!

It's hard to believe that people are already getting geared up for Halloween!
There's not much to report on today. Mom went to the gym and swam indoors again yesterday, since it never got out of the 60s here. Today she is getting a haircut, then later going out to dinner with her sister.
No news on the kitchen: the floor isn't in yet, and neither are the counter tops, so the tile isn't in place yet either. It's still taking up residence on the dining room table.
I hope you are having a fun day, getting in some summer sunshine and lots of love. Hugs, Falco

It's Blue and Jewel.
Mom and dad both worked at the police dept. yesterday. And they both attended the open house meeting in the afternoon. Dad didn't really get to do much out in the field. By the time he got a radio and a car and got the car washed, (somebody parked it under the purple trees again) it was time for the meeting. Mom and dad are all ready for the open house. Nothing has changed from last year so they can use the same sign board as last year.
After the meeting mom and dad went to Costco and bought a really nice, stainless steel prep cart for the kitchen. Dad has to put it together today.
Today will be clear, hot and humid, with a high of 98 and a low of 69.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

It is happy Throwback Thursday once again, and for those who asked, dad's nurse visit went remarkably well once again, all his numbers were as good as a young man! It was announced that this is the start of Ragweed season, beware asthma sufferers! We will leave the doors shut for our Jenny, she is one of you! Dad put a small beef roast in the crock pot, they always make our home smell so good, and there will be carrots and potatoes for us parrots! Have a great day and give our love to all in your home, see ya tomorrow...

  Hi guys !
What a great time mom and dad had at the fair yesterday - mom took lots of pictures - some video of the pig races too ! Maybe she'll post those later on FB for everybird to see (just to get in the mood for our next Milonga !) They got to see all the animals (Landon's favorite part was feeding them), he and mom rode a camel (!), they saw a brand spanking new baby calf, and all the antiques. Mom loved that the horticulture theme this year was lights, camera, action so all displays were tv and movie related. There was even a minion made out of daisies ! Daddy loved the food ! har har har ! Landon and his mom left around 4:00 so mom and dad ate and then saw the Doobie Brothers - they're old men now ! YIKES ! Still it was a good show and they did all their old 70's songs . . . your dad would have enjoyed it !

Today we're staying home - mom wants to clean the carpets before heading back to school - they're pretty yucky. She thinks it's my fault . . . I say it's daddy's ! !

Hope you have a great day - love Cookie

My parronts have been in some really nasty weather flying. One time, they landed with the wing touching the ground and hit so hard that everyone hit the seat in front of them and the flight attendants where thrown around hard. Then it bounced up and hit hard again ... VERY windy that day!!!
Looking forward to getting into the new home. We leave here in 15 days!!! Getting eggcited!

That pic with the toddler skin sis must be so precious and how wonderful to compare mother to daughter at near the same ages on that cherished scooter!
Mom will be staying home tomorrow and the first thing she'll do after she takes care of us will be to get the suitcases out and then throw some things in them immediately,Mom loves your idea and she has started to write some of the things she needs to take for us out already on that list.And here Mom thought that she was going to spend the whole summer home without having to pack another bag!LOL!
This morning was a bright sunny morning,warm with the highs of 83,the lows of 64 and right now at 7:30pm its 73.The day was pleasant for a change,the damp wet floors from the humidity have all nearly dried up,the dew points are in the 60's tonight and there was a nice breeze today and tonight it was nearly cold.Mom got us all up early and cleaned our cages,fed us our bean mix and harnessed Dixie up and got him in our car seat.Mom and Dixie went to Nana's to meet skin sis there and when she came after Mom put Dixie in his cage in Nana's sunroom and fed him,they all got into skin sis's car and took off to Hyannis.They went to Shaw's grocery store so Mom could pay the EverSource bill,this was a big one from the winter from the budget system.No credits this year for Mom.Then they went to Dollar Tree where both Mom and Nana got a few things.Then from there they went to Yarmouth to go to DePalma's and Italian restaurant to have a pizza.When they got into the parking lot there were no cars there and it was after 1:30pm and right around lunch time,so Mom ran to the door and found it locked with no message about being closed,the only thing was they were opened for dinner at 4:00pm.They used to serve lunch there.From there they went back to Hyannis to RiteAid,then Ocean State Job Lots,then back to Mashpee to Asia,a Chinese restaurant that everyone likes.From there,they went to Marshall's where Mom went looking for flip flops for our dad,but they were completely sold out,the young man there told Mom she could get some ladies flip flops for dad but Mom said that just wouldn't work to have dad wear pink flip flops with sparkles etc!Then they went to Stop&Shop and all three of them got something that was on sale.Then from there they went back to Nana's and had something for dessert,Nana's apple crisp and then Mom got Dixie harnessed and ready to go home.She got everything unpacked she bought,got dad a leftover double hamburger from Sunday's grilling and some creamed corn and some cake that Nana sent home for him.Mom cleaned our cages and she took us all out on the deck to join dad for dinner,Mom was too full to eat anything more.What a pleasant night here,its almost cold and nice to walk on floors that aren't damp.Mom did the dishes and repacked dad's cooler lunch box to get him back off to work tonight for a second overnight shift.More long line painting to be done before school starts.We had a bad thunder and lig

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Thanks for all the hatchday wishes!! Today was another cool (69) day and cloudy so I didn’t get a sunbath today or yesterday either. Hoping maybe tomorrow will be nicer. Our company left today and now the household is back to normal. I was a bit wound and pestered and spent more time in my condo then normal at first. Finally I was more my normal self and would sit with our company but also spent time on my play gym and ate too so I was left out to play lots more. I had the company convinced by the time they left that I was just the perfect fid and a real sweetie. “Our paths may change as life goes on but the bond between friends remain ever strong.” Left a vote for you my friend~ hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Come visit me, Gus~Did somebirdy mention "nut"??? & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

I bet the grand had a great time at the science museum I hear there are many cool things to see and do at them.
Oh yes my mom sure remembers how some of those balloons would have a ton of water in them and some would just have a little bit those were the hardest to break.Very cool if all those balloons were able to be filled and seeled.
Still pretty cool here but guess we could be in the 80's on sunday.Im sure we still in store for a couple very warm days.as long as it cools back down at night wont be to hard to deal with.
Happy humpday have a good evening.

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope you guys are enjoying the day! Yes Ian's store is having the Star Wars toy release at midnight. Ian is working it and really looking forward to it. I think the toys are going to be very popular. The Legos alone are just awesome. Pricey, but awesome. Mom's store has them in the back but they are not having a midnight release.
Mom got part of the ad prepped but she had so much clearance this week that she didn't have a lot of time for anything else. The store auditor tore the tags for her so she only has to sort them out. She is off tonight and then will work tomorrow night since there is a 2 day as to set. She'll have time to finish prepping after that. They got the tags yesterday and the bigger signs usually show up about a week before the ad breaks. I don't think you mom getting the stuff 2 days before an ad gives her enough time to make sure it's all there. Mom always has to make signs or extra copies of signs. You just don't have time to do it while you are trying to set an ad! Does your mom have a set schedule? You would think they would schedule when the work is going to be there but mom knows that isn't always the way it's done.
I hope you all have a wonderful day. Don't know what we are going to do since it's just one day off. Mom will probably just want to sleep! Ian is going in at 9 tonight since they left early this morning. The guy Ian is working with still isn't feeling great!!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Hah! Mom didn't just flake on zumba yesterday, she never took me for the nail trim either. We both find it so traumatic, she will use any excuse not to go. Then I landed on her shoulder without the towel to cushion, and now she is regretting it. Afraid that visit is not far away.

Although the weather geeks are saying it will only hit 94 today, Mom went outside at 9 and knew we needed to get out immediately for my sunbath. Unfortunately I did not agree; not even for a pb cookie. I didn't go for the bait right up to 10, even after she gave up, left my room and took an hour nap. It was still sitting on the perch in my carrier when she came back. By then it was much too hot to go outside and muggy too.

So today will be quiet with a light lunch and then Mom time this afternoon. The book she is reading is a thick one with no renewals from the library because it is brand new and popular (Laurell K Hamilton's latest for those of you whose mom's follow such things). So Mom will be reading diligently although she will finish it way before the due date. She is sooooo compulsive! Dad calls her a book-a-holic!

Teri's mom was not able to get her procedure this morning, so her pain issue is not resolved. Apparently soft foods will help the problem while they are deciding what to do, so Mom shared tips from her post-op diet after her tummy surgery last year. Trust me, it is not something birdies enjoy sharing!! Anyway she may or may not be blogging today.

It being Wednesday I lose Mom from 3:30-6 to the gym, and this is now the day with the 30 minute break between training and zumba. Let's see how many crunches she gets in tonight!

  Hey Buddy's
Heres a bucket of shaved ice to put on our slip and slides!!!

Happy Humpday!!!

Sorry I have to make this short my mommy has to go to PT today.

Everyone did an awesome job with answers. But lots of them was half answers because of the confusion on the date.My bad...

My mommys uncle was in the barrocks in Pine Ridge in 1973.He was also an active member of AIM. AIM started off as a peaceful group defending the traditional ways of our tribes.Years later they were called militants and a lot of bad stuff because they had to go to war with the government and the BIA(We call the BIA bossing Indians around)
One sided yes.Our government is very one sided.It's ok for them to kill and inprison us but when we fight back we are called militants.We are warriors!!!

Everyone who answered my question about AIM can go to my gallery and pick up a pendleton blanket and post it on thier gallery.The blankets also make awesome backgrounds for our pictures. Alot of Native American babies use them for that too.

Todays question What tribe are my tribe's the Northern Cheyennes worse enemies and why...

Get your research on and win some beautiful Native American Jewelery.

Muck Love to all my friends and relations.

Love your King War Chief

  Hi Pearl, Hi Silver
It's Blue and Jewel.
Yesterday was overcast, hot and muggy all day. Bob came over and he, mom and dad want to see Mission Impossible. It was good, with lots of action. After the movie they want to Blake's Place and had some great BBQ.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 97 and a low of 65. Mom and dad have a meeting at the police station for the open house. Today is also a Save Power day so they'll probably leave early for the meeting and find someplace cool to hang out.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
The baby is getting so big! She looks more mature now.
Those guys are still working outside in the yard. Hope they are finished today.
Mom got the filler piece for the kitchen, let the guy know, but he doesn't think he'll make it until next week. Mom is now resigned to the fact that the kitchen may not get done in time for company. The floor, the counter tops, and the backsplash still need to be installed, and the floor isn't in yet. Oh well, we can still enjoy our company, since we'll be running around, hopefully, and seeing the sights here in town.
Mom swam yesterday in the indoor pool, since it wasn't very warm outside. It never got into the 70s yesterday. Today it's supposed to get to 70, so it still looks like another indoor swim kind of day.
I hope you are having a great summer day with lots of good weather and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

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

  Wednesday Flitzer Time
Happy Wednesday from Buffalo, NY.
We are so happy that it's much cooler and very comfortable here this week.
[it makes Dad a lot less grumpy].

I'm still having trouble landing due to my recent wing-clip. I fly ok
(flit), but Dad usually has to pick me up and bring me to my destination. Glad I don't hurt myself when I stumble.
--
Yesterday Dad helped Uncle Geno get his dog, Lucy, back to the vet to get her stitches removed.
Lucy is a white German Shepherd - quite a large dog.

Hope you have a wonderful day full of hugs n happy times.

  Hi guys !
Another perfect summer day here except for the fact that I'll be alone :( Mom and dad and the niece are taking the g'nephew, Landon, to the county fair. Mom can't wait to see the craft tents - Landon wants to see the animals and go on some rides - and daddy wants to eat junk food ! If they're not too tired, mom and dad will stay for the concert tonight - the Doobie Brothers are there and both parronts remember them from their youth !

I sure hope you guys are enjoying the cooler weather ! We're supposed to go back to summer next week ! I guess we should enjoy it - Farmer's Almanac says it's going to be another tough winter :( UGH ! Although, I saw on WeatherChannel that you guys should be wet this winter - hopefully that will help !

Happy Humpday ! love Cookie

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Michael Vick has just been signed with the steelers football team.

Vick served 21 months in federal prison after he admitted in 2007 that he had operated a dog fighting ring at a farm he owned in Virginia.
Vick admitted in 2007 to keeping dozens of dogs for a dog fighting ring. Federal authorities say many were badly abused and some brutally executed
Federal authorities seized 70 dogs, mostly pit bulls. Many of them showed signs of severe neglect and abuse. Authorities allege he and his friends had brutally executed several other dogs

the disgraced NFL quarterback also neglected his pet birds, allowing one to starve to death and another to go without food and water.
Vick left one exotic bird in its cage to die of starvation and nearly allowed a second to succumb to the same fate. Vick, he had a beautiful pet bird named Junior that he allowed the roam around his mansion.'Mike decided that the home he lived in at the time was too small for someone of his stature purchased a home in the same neighborhood that was more suitable to the growing size of his bank account,'
Weeks later, after he moved into the new house the star football player at his new Atlanta mansion, but Junior the bird was nowhere to be found.
he hadn’t moved everything out of the old house and when he went back over there to check on things, Junior was still there and in his bird cage, dead'
'They had treated Junior like he was just another piece of furniture that they could just set aside and move at a later date.Vick said because he was an Atlanta Falcon player, fans were always trying to give him birds, and so Junior was no big loss.'
a second bird, a Cockatoo called Crystal,was in its cage without food or water at his home. the bird was later adopted even though Vick told her he wanted it back when he got out of prison.

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Well, we have 30 days after closing to get out. But, we have to pay rent ... their payment. The money is held by title company. If we get out before 30 days, we will get a refund. we had no place to go so, didn't have a choice.
That is so funny ... they learn fast and so do furballs.
I'm back! My parronts landed in FL during a t-storm and had to run for it (no jetway). They opened the tail of the plane too ... had to get everyone out fast. It was sunny and 86 to 96 degrees ... they loved it! They spent most of their time looking for houses. They found one they liked. Finally on Sunday, everyone reached an agreement and the house was "sold". We leave here in about 3 weeks. I have a couple of pics on the bottom of my page. They came home to non-stop rain and 50 degrees as a high, still raining. Only a few weeks until I'm a beach bird!
Hugs
