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
She's turning two already!!??? Time flies! Is she still as cute and adorable? We want to see those pics, please.


Well, fortunately the bite on Mom's hand turned out not to be painful for as long as she thought it would. So our afternoon and evening were quite friendly. I do enjoy my "go to bed ritual", and Mom followed it precisely. If she doesn't do everything just in the exact proper order I pitch a fit, but last night she performed it perfectly.

Then this morning she hoped to get me outside at 9AM, but it was already 80 degrees. She just said the heck with it, because I had already made it clear I was not in a cooperative mood. I haven't even sat on her shoulder yet today, and here it is after 11. Very unusual for me, since I am normally a cuddler.

Wednesday is the day Mom goes to the gym in the afternoon from 4-6, although she has been coming home a little earlier since she can't finish the whole hour at zumba these days. She did her normal Monday routine yesterday, since Talyah didn't have the Monday spot available. Mom had forgotten how much more she enjoyed the Tuesday zumba over the class on Monday (different teachers). So if she ever hears back from Becky about Sunday afternoons, she might be training with her privately on Sunday, doing yoga and zumba on Tuesday, and training with Talyah at the gym followed by zumba on Wednesday afternoon and Friday morning. What is wrong with this picture? Too much time away from me!!

And now she says she needs to get her feathers cut tomorrow, which is our day off. (Yes, I know she is retired, but normally every other Thursday is an all Kiddo day). That also means a trip to the library and a bath for Gloria since they are all near each other. She could be gone for more than an hour!! Unacceptable. I think she needs another bite!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
The kissing booth field trip at Yellowstone should wrap up today, so stop by and see what other adventures we have in store. Yogi Bear and Jellystone park, anyone?
What a difference a day makes! Yesterday and the day before were oppressively humid and hot, and today it's not even 70 and cloudy. The guys said 74 and partly sunny today, so it's warming slowly. It's not raining though and we could use some again.
Last night mom and her sister went to Red Lobster for dinner. Neither of them could finish the meal, and neither of them would take shrimp home. It's never the same warmed over, is it? The funny thing was they were looking at a berry dessert and talking about splitting it before they ordered. Of course, not being members of the clean plate club, not to mention stuffed, they didn't get the dessert.
It's not going to be a very interesting day today, but that's fine with us. It means when mom gets home from the pool, she'll be ours for the rest of the day, and by then, we'll have rearranged our cages to our liking as well.
I hope you are having a great summer day, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

It feels so good to have cooler temps and lower humidity for a change! This is visiting nurse day but tomorrow dad will be gone all day with three appointments with specialists at the Iowa City VA Hospital, a long boring day for him! Dad's sister will drive him there thankfully, he still don't trust his strength to hold up that long by himself! Have a happy hump day dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all soon, but probably not tomorrow...

  hi fellows !
Happy humpday ! That is if it matters . . . it doesn't to me during the summer cause mom is home ! Yesterday's rain ended early, but it never really cleared up - the day remained overcast with thick hard to breathe air. Even when taking Landon to gym it was still yucky, and that's at 3:30 ! He won't get in mom's new car through the door any more - he wants to go in through the "trunk" to get to his car seat ! Silly boy ! Hopefully today's weather will be a little better. By the weekend it's supposed to be beautiful for all the cookouts, etc. Mom and dad missed their walk two days in a row now . . .

Don't forget to go try your wing again at NAME THAT TUNE on page 231616 ! New songs every week ! Have a great day - love Cookie

  Hi Pearl and Silver,
Well I'm a little bad, but mom always catches me. :0

I step up pretty good but I get tired and mom says she wants me to step up and get some eggcercize. Then I get bored doing that so I take off towards Laka's tree, again.

Mom says that my tree will be ready for me to go venture in this weekend so I'm happy. :)

I'll have mom take a picture once I find my favorite perch. She still has to put my toys on the tree too.

She's hoping that I will be a good boy and that time will tell till I can be free all day like my fister Laka. She's never locked in her cage even if she's bad. Mom says she's well trained not to go off her tree or her cage.

Ahhh to be free.......one day. :)

Hugs and a vote for you.

Oh yes, the wedding went very well. I Skyped my flower bird walk on my computer at vet-camp. There were two flower girls, ring bearer and me ... oh yes, Luna (corgi) ... even she walked the aisle very well at the wedding. Not so much at rehearsal ... LOL!
My parronts went to the beach this morning. They said the ocean was warmer than our pool. The water was calm and clear ... a very nice beach day. Until the big nasty t-storm hit. They were soaked getting into the house. There was a lot of standing water around too. I viewed all this from my nice comfy bed.

  Hi Pearl & Silver
well we couldn't blog last night because we had no internet. yesterday mom spent lots of time at the office store xeroxing documents, then she spent time at triple A having a notary stamp papers, then she went and bought more file folders then she went back to the office store and xeroxed some more and then went to the post office to mail poa letters to health insurance and mail order pharmaceutical company for g-ma. then a guy came this morning from the Pa dept ar agriculture and sprayed the hemlocks for red spider mite infestation which he said was kiling the hemlocks. mom was very upset because she doesn't like any kind of insecticide. this morning she went to ss and it only took about 5 minutes to change Gmas mail to our house and when SS lady asked for a verification document mom had all of them with her and had to go through everything to find what the lady wanted. when mom came home she spent the rest of the day weeding the along the side of the road and trimming it with a scissor. then some guys came and cut down all 5 of our rhododendrons that were about 25 feet tall. because the the dept of pa agriculture said they had a fungus called root rot which was killing everything so they will be treating the soil next week for that. tomorrow will be a nightmare because tall timber tree co is coming to cut down 3 trees. the 50' oak will take them about 5 hours to bring down and the other 2 not too much time. mom and dad had the place looking absolutely perfect today and mom said for what. tomorrow it will look like a total disaster. mom has some babies in one bird house and figures she will just stand somewhere safe holding the bird house so the mom will come and feed the babies. hopefully the men will dig up a few of the shrubs before they bgin so they won't get damage. the tree is only about 15 feet from the house and there could potentially be damage to the house as well. anyway might not be online since a branch might cut off our power.

WE HAD A MUCH COOLER DAY TODAY. THE SUN WOULD ONLY COME OUT FOR A SHORT TIME AND IT WAS VERY BREEZY. MOM SAID IT WAS JUST TOO COOL FOR US TO BE OUTSIDE. TOMORROW WILL BE IN THE UPPER 70'S AND A BIT WARMER.

Mom will be getting another car in the next year or two but good to get the AC working now for the summer when its hot though.
I got my sunbath today after mom got home from getting groceries and it wasn’t as humid then, It was hot when mom first got home but by the time she put things away the humidity had went down.
Mom didn’t buy any peaches or nectarines this week at the store cause the ones she got last week weren’t very good and most were thrown away. Mom got corn at the store and we had that for supper. Mom always gives me a whole side on a cob to eat while they are eating. I get it all over my beakie. Its beak smaking good!
I don’t like those flies coming in my house! Mom and dad are always after them with the flyswatters. I do the fly around when they chase the flies. Mom is more in control but dad with a flyswatter sure isn’t!

We kind of have our service bundled here with having the wifi no home phone. Once and awhile they try and talk mom into adding home phone service but no real need for it. Like I was saying a few weeks back mom is trying to downgrade her cell phone service.
Much cooler here now feels wonderful we are only in the low 70's today and should dip down to the low 50's tonight my mom says that's great sleeping weather.
We should really get a air cleaner for our place probably would help a lot mom has looked at some sometime ago but hasn't any time recently. Have a good evening guys.

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope you are having a great day!! I am having a horrible time with the computer today. I don't think it's BC this time, I think it's our computer. Ian is not home yet so mom has no help. There are ads all over BC and we have never had that before. Mom checked the ad blocker program and it seems to be okay. Don't know what is going on!
Mom only has one more night to go! YAY She is only getting one night off which isn't any help since she just wants to sleep! She has Bed and Bath clearance tonight. She has kept up with it so that is a good thing. She will have time next week to go back over everything to make sure she didn't catch. Some of kitchen towels are in the stock room but mom told the department lead so he will go looking for them.
We had tree trimmer here today and it was very loud. They just left. It scared McKenzie to begin with. When they came to do the tree outside the bedroom window McKenzie started barking so mom had to calm her down. Mom had to close the windows again also since it smelled like gasoline. All good now!!
Enjoy the day!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Well, I had one shot at a sun bath today, and that was if I cooperated at 8:45 when Mom tried to get me into my outside carrier. I didn't, and by 9:15 it was already 80 outside and heating up quickly. So doomed to stay inside again today. (We hit 94 today, and since it's cloudy it is kinda muggy.)

Mom left for the gym at 10:15 and didn't get home until 12:45. Now that is just too long. I think this whole thing of working out with her trainer and then doing zumba (even if she only lasted 45 minutes) is cutting into time that belongs to me! Somebirdy please tell her to straighten up!

As soon as she was done with her (cool) shower she came in for Kiddo time, so that was good. And then after a little while she went and made a fruit smoothie for us to share. She would let me help, but that blender scares the tailfeathers off of me! I do like the smoothies though. Very tasty!

After that Mom decided to fix my toy that I had chewed the bell off of (the best part!). Unfortunately I thought she was stealing my toy, and I bit her really hard on the spot between her thumb and first finger. Apparently that spot really hurts when you bite it, so Mom took my toy and left. Hey! Anyway she did bring it back after it was fixed, so I guess we forgive each other.

We were trying to do our blogs this afternoon and suddenly we were up against the slow cycling and then the URL error pages again.So its taking us much longer to finish our visits to everyone.I sure do agree with you that BC will be up and running properly for our Milonga on Saturday.We too may be mostly silent as my Mom and dad may have to go out then also.
Its so good to hear that you aren't in the triple digits there and we so hope that you never get that high,that is way too uncomfortable for anyone to have to deal with right now!Most of the stores around here don't open til around 9 or 10am either.
That is really wonderful that the store has whole new light bulbs replacing the old ones so things are much more pleasant and brighter when you come into the store!
Those hummingbird sightings are always a pleasure even if you only get to see the tail tips!They are so sneaky when they come around you never know whether or not they even come to the feeders until you see the nectar has gone down some.Mom and dad and us never saw any hummingbirds yesterday or the goldfinches.They probably will be eating indoor today as its been looking like rain all day here,no sunshine and dark cloudy skies and a bit cooler out there so we never got to go outside today at all.
Dixie felt better I think when Mom gave him another nare flush and opened his clogged nare so he could breathe better and eat.He actually ate his bean mix this morning again without a problem.We really don't care for carrots either but if they're done in a matchstick style we'll try munching on them.We mainly just like peas and corn.Dixie will try most anything you give him though as he's such a foodie.
This morning was a dismal dark,dreary looking day with our highs for the day of 75 the lows of 65 and right now its 74 under dark cloudy skies.There's no sun at all and it looks like its going to rain any minute.Mom got dad off to work and then she did some chores and then got us all up and cleaned our cages.She had to take Candida's cage all apart because she's back to chewing up all the paper and cardboard Mom has over her grate.That took a long time for Mom to clean and sweep all the debris out from under the grate and the sides of the cage before she could put back fresh cardboard and paper.And then all the toys Mom has on the cage floor to keep her from getting the whole thing torn up.After Mom finished with Candida's cage she gave us our bean mix.We are going to have an uneventful day here again today with Mom just finishing up some chores and vacuuming the house.We are happy about that as it keeps Mom here with us.We are so hoping to see some sun today so we can go outside for our shower and sun bath.
The three tiels all open their wings up wide for a big group tiel wing hug and hold on tight humming and swaying happily together!

The guidelines are posted, it's getting the college interns to read them that is the problem. One of them tossed a huge dish of leftover bird food into the trash yesterday, too. Mom saw it after the fact and informed the girl that it was supposed to be rat food, not garbage.
If you're going to the Kissing Booth today, make sure you have your camping equipment, we're off to Yellowstone Park for an overnight trip. We're hoping to see all kinds of wildlife, and of course, the geysers.
Mom is doing laundry today, but with this weather it's also a pool day. She got 6 books yesterday at the pool from various friends. She went with 2, hoping to return home with one, and ended up with a bag full. At least none of the ladies has to buy each book! They all trade them back and forth all summer long.
We are in for a cage cleaning later today, too. Mom cleans every day, but once or twice a week, she scrubs everything too, and that's what we're in for today. I hope you are having a great summer day, getting lots of sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  hi Pearl and Silver !
It was supposed to rain overnight, but started instead around 5:00 last night. Of course getting dark early like that confused me and by 7:00-7:30 I started squawking for my goodnightbird nutriberry. It's supposed to continue this morning and then start to clear up in the afternoon . . . the grass is happy !

I sure hope it clears up cause the g'nephew's gym class changed to Tuesday for the summer so I'll be on my own for a couple of hours . . . plus mom wants to run to Bird Jungle as I'm all out of my hot chili peppers - I love to leave pepper dust in my wake as I crunch my way through those !

Hope you guys have a great Tuesday ! love Cookie

Oh yes, my parronts set up my vet-camp bunk with my stuff. It was good to have things I know all around me.
I'm back! I had my 5 sleeps at vet-camp. The report was a well behaved bird. Mom came around the corner and when I saw her, I was all eggcited and called out to her. I was so happy to see my parronts. Mom held me while dad packed my stuff. So good to be home. My skinsis is married now and the wedding was beautiful. There were two other flower girls but, I know that I did a very good job. Even Luna (Jess's corgi) walked down the aisle. She went crazy at rehearsal trying to get to Jess (my skinsis) but was perfect during the wedding. When everyone clapped for Jess & Jeff, she barked her congrats one time. We are all trying to catch up on our sleep.

WE HAD A VERY HOT DAY HERE TODAY. IT WAS 90 DEGREES BUT NOT AS HUMID. MOM SAID THAT IT WAS WAY TOO HOT TO SIT OUTSIDE SO WE STAYED IN.

SWEETPEPPER AND I HAD EARLY MORNING VET APPTS FOR WINGS AND NAILS. I ONLY GET MY NAILS DONE. THE VET WEIGHED ME AND I WAS 99 GRMS SO THAT WAS GOOD.
ONCE WE GOT BACK HOME I TOOK A NICE LONG NAP.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
What an awesome idea for gma have your Mom thread several needles for her so she could have them ready any time she needed to sew anything.Mom can understand those small eyed needles that made the thread seem much bigger than the hole it was supposed to be threaded through!Mom does have some of those self threading needles and they do work pretty good.She just has to remember what to do each time she uses one!
My Mom may have to do the same thing next Saturday as she may be going out around that time or a bit earlier and won't be able to come home in time.
So far BC has been working fine for me and we haven't had any slow cycling or error pages or timed out pages!I sure do hope BC works well for next Saturday for everyone at the Milonga!
That really makes a difference when the A/C at Aunt Karen's work is running properly.Its so hard to work in such heat!Especially with all the computers and registers giving off heat themselves and adding to it all.And it must make it much easier to see what they're doing in the warehouse area with the new lighting.Its so hard to see things clearly in such dim lighting!
Mom is so hoping to see more goldfinches coming to the feeder but today we never saw any,not even the hummingbird!How awesome for your Mom to see the hummingbird there sitting on the side perch!Its really incredible to see them actually perching rather than hovering!
This morning was another bright sunny day with the highs for the day of 76 the lows of 60 and right now its 75.Mom got dad off to work and then she went upstairs and scrubbed the bathroom and collected all the area rugs and beat them outside and left them on the deck for some air.Then she scrubbed the downstairs bathroom and by then it was time to get us up.She cleaned our cages and swept our room and gave us our bean mix.Mom is working on more chores that she never got done yesterday and then maybe if she gets done in time she can get us all outside on the deck for some sunshine and a nice shower or two.Other than Mom being busy around the house,its going to be another quiet boring day here which we all look forward too!
UPDATE:We finally got to get outside today and enjoy some sunshine and some showers on the deck while Mom read a little.We didn't get out til after 3:00pm but the sun was still hot and there was lots of action with the birds,chipmunks and squirrels and rats.We got to join Mom and dad for dinner out on the deck and Dixie who refused to eat all day was begging off dad for his peas and bread.Mom gave them some carrots and mashed potatoes and they really enjoyed those!The weather sure did drop in temperature as soon as Mom brought dinner out to the deck table.Suddenly the sun went down around 5:30pm and it got quite chilly.After dinner both Mom and dad didn't stay out long and we all had to get back inside.
The three tiels all open their wings up wide for a big group tiel wing hug and hold on tight savoring their friendship and love humming and swaying happi

  Hi Pearl Hi Silver
Dad has mentioned to mom of just getting rid of the cable all together and going with one of those new things like Hulu. Mom hates to admit it but she's hooked on some of her shows and likes having the cable as much as she hates paying the price for it.
Finally cooling down here this evening as the cool front is moving in. So nice to finally be able to have the windows open again for fresh air. Really hate being all closed up inside.
Definitely don't blame your mom for not making that sponge cake if shes not very fond of it.
Hope your week is off to a good start. Have a good night.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Oh those paper cuts sure do hurt and always get then in the worse place too it seems!
This morning mom and dad had to take the car over to a local business to see if he could fix the AC in it. Mom has AC for a little while and then it quits and she just puts her windows all down as she rides along. Dad said when your in the city its nice to have the AC working though so guess he has a point there. It just needed Freon added to it so that was good and now it works good.
Then mom was having trouble with her laptop and took it for a friend to look at and here there was two programs trying to run at the same time so he fixed that for mom and now she has that fixed too.
Yep a busy day here with washing clothes and hanging some out and scrubbing the floors and running the sweeper besides all the above stuff going on. I got my sunbath too so mom is pretty tired tonight.

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Sounds like your mom has already had a very busy day!
Mom cleaned my cage out before I came out for my waffle this morning. I have 2 new toys to work on! I have already started! It's suppose to be hot here today so mom opened up the window early. It's already 81 but it doesn't feel bad.
McKenzie finally took a nap after mom took Jennifer to work. She was asleep for a few minutes and then jumped up to the window and started barking. There was a exterminator guy down there spraying in the bushes. Mom closed the window! Mom didn't even hear him but McKenzie did. The lady downstairs said she had ants again but we haven't had any. Mom can't smell anything but she figures it is better to be safe and keep the window closed for a while.
Nothing else going on around here. I'll be busy getting the cage decorated!
Mom managed to get all of last nights clearance marked. Tonight is housewares and storage. Storage is a bunch of wicker baskets so she is going to have to move lots of stuff since the collections are not separated. They are suppose to be but they are not! Mom thinks they are running and extra 60% off for the weekend. It's at 50% right now. Be very nice to get rid of some of the stuff! We just hope your mom got some help!
I hope your day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love ya ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Pearl and Silver
This morning when mom walked the dogs it was trying to rain, so she figured it would rain a lot while she was at the center. No such luck, though! It cleared up, so she had to water plants when she got back.
Meanwhile at the center this morning, she was cleaning and feeding in the avian nursery. It was hot in there, for sure. Those woodpeckers were really active, and one escaped, but mom caught it and put it back. There are several kestrels in there now, too. They are so cute. There is also a screech owl who will be going to the zoo as an education ambassador later in the week. He is missing an eye, so can't be released, and we already have a screechie on our permit, so we found a new home for him. When mom left the center, she carried animals with her. She released a mallard at the river. It was the longest release she ever did! The steps leading to the river's edge were blocked off, so mom opened the carrier at the top of the bluff, hoping she would go down right away to the water. Instead, she hung out, eating greens, and looking for bugs! It took about 20 minutes for her to leave and go down to the river. Mom had to stay and make sure she was headed in the right direction, and not back onto the road. Meanwhile, the possums in her car were parked in the shade with the windows down. So mom released the 4 possums in our yard, and they were much easier. They left right away. Mom always wishes them a long happy life. Now she has to remember to return the carriers the animals were in. They are at the bottom of the driveway, so hopefully she'll remember to return them.
The pool was a welcome sight today, since it's so hot and humid here. After the great release, mom couldn't wait to dip her head underwater. It was a good afternoon, and now that she's home, she's all ours for the rest of the day. We love that!
Come on by the kissing booth, I'm there for the next 2 weeks. We'r planning on some fun. Uncle Frank is looking for more volunteers to be there, so if you can help out, let him know!
I hope you are having a wonderful summer day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Stay cool if you can! Hugs, Falco

  Hi Pearl & Silver
I didn't think you got triple digits very often. It is not the usual thing for you to be hotter than us at all. Hope it doesn't get that hot for you.

Well, no sunbath today, and this time it was the sun's fault! Mom was all ready to take me out at 9:15, since she knew today was supposed to hit 95. I was cooperative, but it was already too hot! 85 degrees that early! Mom switched her Monday gym training to Tuesday this week, so she is pretty much not planning on leaving the house today if she can help it. Unfortunately the 10 day forecast is all around 90 or higher, with just a few days dropping to 88. This is August weather, not June! What's going on?

I am looking forward to another pastrami sandwich for lunch. I sure do love that stuff. And since Mom is going through her kindle looking for something that really grabs her interest, I am thinking she will be in my room a lot. Works for me!

  Hi Pearl, Hi Silver
It's Blue and Jewel.
Yesterday was cage cleaning day. At the La Habra flock's house cage cleaning is an all day job and mom and dad were both busy. Only two cages to go. Sawyer's and Sassy's.
Later on today mom and dad are going back into the police station so mom can get the rest of her passwords reset.
Today will be another hot one, with a high of 93 and a low of 68.
Izzy has played with a few of his toys but not the newest one yet. The other day dad hung it on the outside of his cage so he'd get used to it but no action yet.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel

  hi fellows !
Happy Monday - mom has a few errands to run - she's loving being able to do chores and errands whenever she wants to and not having to wait till the weekend. Today ? She needs new sneakers ! Sad part is . . . she's going AFTER my cage cleaning :( And as if that weren't bad enough - I heard her say something about my awesome talons needing a trim !

It's another warm sunny day today, but hopefully we'll have some rain tomorrow - the grass is all brown and crunchy when you walk on it . . . the plants have been getting watered at least - there are maters waiting to turn red and oodles of flowers waiting for the maters to develop :)

That's great that mom is at the store to get first dibs on things for Jade ! Lucky little girl :) Have a great day ! love Cookie

  Hi Pearl & Silver
mom says this POA for G-mais really complicated. G-pa's son who is his POA apparently changed all G-ma's mail to his address yet he was not POA of G-ma. since mom is legally G-mas POA all these companies want proof that she is POA just so they will forward G-mas bills to mom yet they don't send any forms to tell you want they need as proof. mom now has forms coming out of the wazoo. she has now spent 3 days just talking with G-mas medication pharmacy on how to pay the bills and legally let them know she is POA. she will now make double copies of everything and send one set to the pharmacy and one set to g-mas health insurance and hope that is enough. Gpas son just opened an account for Gma with SS and told mom she can use that to change G-mas address but according to SS that is illegal so mom will then take all the forms she has with her to SS to change g-mas mailing address to her own and hope she doesn't get G-pas son in trouble for doing it the way he did. mom is not going to take any chances and do anything wrong. dad told mom she should start charging g-ma for being POA and for all this work.

last night after being disappointed that the milonga was cancelled we didn't stick around and didn't realize that it was still going on or we would have stayed. mom stayed up to 3:30am watching a foreign german film called labyrinth of lies about a young german attorney prosecutor who brought to trial 18 former SS nazi officers at Auschwitz. it was a true story and quite fascinating to watch. mom was exhausted when she went to bed and was almost asleep when she felt something walking on her leg. she reached down thinking it was a ant but felt nothing. a second later she felt it again but this time on her thigh and after reaching down she felt nothing. finally she pulled the sheet bak turned on the light and found a CENTIPEDE crawling on her leg. mom was too tired to be horrified or else she would have jumped out the window. she grabbed a pillow and bushed it off of her leg and it ran under the bed. mom is hoping Boo Boo the hunter will find it tonight when she is loose in the bedroom. Boo Boo misses nothing.

love Boo Boo

YEP IT WAS A BUMMER THAT WE COULD NOT GET ON THEBC UNTIL 11:30PM THAT NIGHT. SINCE THE MAIN MILONGA HOSTS COULD NOT GET ON, IT WAS DECIDED TO RESCHEDULE THE BC. WE SO HOPE IT WILL WORK NEXT WEEKEND.

IT WAS HOT AND HUMID HERE TODAY. STILL NO A/C HERE. G-PA IS NOT FEELING WELL SO THE A/C STAYS OFF. MOM SAYS SHE IS DRIPPING SWEAT SOON AFTER GETTING UP. NOT MUCH BETTER OUTSIDE EITHER. THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO RAIN AS NO SUN SO NO SUNBATH. MOM SAID IT WAS JUST TOO HUMID TO SIT OUTSIDE OR ANYWHERE.

MONDAY IS SUPPOSED TO BE EVEN WORSE.

  ages.Mom kept trying until nearly 9:30pm and finally gave up.I wish that they would fix BC and not give up on us and we only hope that next Saturday it won't do the same thing!
UPDATE: Skin bro came over first while Mom was getting all the grilling meat ready and marinated and everything on the tray for the hamburgers and hot dogs,rolls etc.Then she took us all outside on the deck to get some sunshine and showers.Skin sis came over an hour later and brought Peepers and Celine with her and they joined Candida in the big deck cage.Dad got the grill ready and Mom grilled everything and served everyone while skin sis got the water for everyone.Mom had put a very berry pie in the oven for dessert earlier and that was cooling while they ate.Dad came up on the deck and shared us all with some bread.Mom had pork chops,hamburgers,broccoli rabe and peccorino cheese sausages,hot dogs and some steak for dad.Mom got some help cleaning up the grill area and bringing in the leftovers for this coming week for Mom to make dinner with and then she had help from skin bro in bringing out the pie and the whipped cream and cookies and cream ice cream.Mom cleaned up the dishes after that and then everyone just vegged out and watched the birds coming and going to the feeder and bird bath and we saw some goldfinches Mom and dad fly to the finch feeders that no one wanted in the past year.It was so exciting to see them as they haven't been around for years here.Then Mom clipped both Peepers and Celine's nails and then clipped flight feathers. Skin sis finally left to go home around 7:00pm and Mom ran up to take a shower and then got everything ready for dad's work for tomorrow.Its been another long day but at least we got to enjoy some deck time in the sunshine with Mom!
The three tiels all open their wings wide for a big group tiel wing hug and hold on tight for a long time humming and swaying happily the entire time!
