I was being birdsat for my former owners, as had occurred a couple times before. This time they decided to leave me, 'cause this flock gives me more attention. She has lived with us for about 10 years.

ANYTHING edible, POPCORN

In the circle of the UHF antenna, Polly's cage where there's food, foraging on the playstand.

Being stuck in the cage to keep me away from quaker Polly. Being on a perpetual diet, the vet says to keep my weight reasonable.

No the owner, but the children--they take me for showers, let me sit on their computer screens, let me play with the computer keys. Mom just feeds me and gives me treats, and housekeeps.

Riding on shoulders looking backwards, when out of cage always foraging in her legos..

FOOD!.

  Hello Zippy~~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. Very pretty here and not too warm.
Washer broke yesterday so we are waiting for someone to come fix it. It may be Monday before anyone comes over. Luckily most of the laundry is done.
My play cage was all cleaned up when I got up this morning! I did sort of toss my bowl of oatmeal around but since I had eaten most of it the mess wasn't that bad! Now I am working on some toys in order to redecorate the bottom of my cage. Mom said she had to pull it out and sweep behind it! She said I had been busy!! Well of course I have been busy! I'm the bird and it's my job!
Mom bought McKenzie a stuffed alligator yesterday and she has already ripped it open! Mom is praying there comes a time when McKenzie does not chew so much! Birdsonally I don't think there is anything wrong with chewing!!
I hope your day is fabulous! Can't believe we only have one more day and then no BC. Doesn't seem real yet!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's sunny and pretty here and only going to hit 76. I can live with that!
Mom got up early to take Ian to work and then took McKenzie on a walk. She made us some oatmeal with pecans and applesauce when she got back. I ate that all up! Dad is getting ready to head off to Montana. I think he's going to New York after that.
Mom goes back to work tonight so she getting her thing ready for the workweek. We are nearly done with the laundry. We need to get George and Gracie cleaned out since we didn't get it done yesterday. That is about it!
We copied all our stuff off BC just in case they decide to shut down earlier. It took a while to move all of the BOTD Archive stuff!! It was nearly 5 years of BOTD's!! Don't know if any bird will ever need the info but we saved it anyway!
Enjoy your day and I hope it's perfect!

I hope the day is going great! Sorry for the general type note today but mom has to go pick dad up in an hour so our time is limited.
We posted the reply from Petcha on the calendar page. They say there is going to be a bird part to it. Crystal said they were going to move the stuff from BC over there. Move what I wonder? We have everyones email I think and we think everyone has ours. We are in the BC directory also. We will stay in touch! You have all become part of our lives and we could not imagine a world without you!!!
It is day 2 of McKenzie's recovery and if she did not have that scar running down her tummy you would never know she had surgery! She has been running up and down the hall, jumping on the bed and chasing Merlin! That was just when mom let her out of the crate this morning so they could take their walk!!!! Mom is going crazy trying to keep her quiet. She is not wearing the cone and has not bothered with her stitches. Mom gave her another pain pill so hopefully she will get sleepy and go to sleep. Mom knew this was going to happen even though so many people said that being spayed would calm her down. McKenzie does not have the laid back dog personality!
Enjoy the day and the time we have left here! I know we will figure out something.

  Hello Zippy~
I hope your day is going great!! We are being quiet around here so that McKenzie can sleep and recover from her surgery. She did really well and hasn't had to have a cone on yet. She seems to be more bothered by her leg where they put the IV in. She didn't eat much last night but this morning she had her regular breakfast. I shared my pancakes with her too. She has to go back in a couple of weeks to get the stitches out.
Merlin was very upset when mom came home yesterday morning without McKenzie! Who would have thought that he would miss her? He fussed the entire day until mom brought her back. He is such a contrary cat!
Today is Jennifer's birthday! Mom and Ian got her gift cards since she likes those the best! When mom dropped her off at work all the kids at the daycare were lined up by the fence and sang Happy Birthday to her! It was so cute! Think she was a bit embarrassed by the attention!
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's just spectacular!

Thanks for sharing your snacks with me. The parronts were busy with family in from out of town all week and we were locked up most of the time. They always take us out and hold us for an hour or so when they get home, though. Now, everyone is finally gone and things are getting back to normal. Except they aren't, since we will be losing BC. Mom can't imagine the site being gone.

I do not know about this retirement thingy....I thing we had more mom time when she worked full time. now she is all over the house, directing dad in all sorts of projects, helping dad to take down trees (disposing of perfectly good perches) and running all over to do gardening and these errands for her older friends. Mom would work until she would fall her perch at work but the corporate powers had other ideas to screw her over so....more fun with us and dad! And besides, dad is a full time job! We have to check if we have a timeshare out near you so the parronts can come and visit. Has to be during the warm season because mom is always cold! Love and winghugs Moggie

Hope you are having a lovely day! Power washer guy came back and sprayed my window again!!! McKenzie went to defend it for me!! Mom had to put her on her leash until he was done. Then the gardeners came and used the blower thingy to clean up the sidewalks cause all the gook that was on the building was on the sidewalks!! I am hoping the rest of the day is peaceful!
Mom switched her schedule so she will be working tonight and be home with McKenzie on Thursday night. She will be going in an hour early tonight since she had to have McKenzie checked in at the vet at 7 am. Sure would have been easier if dad could have made it home.
McKenzie and Merlin broke the coffee table this morning! They have been working on it for a while and mom figured it wasn't going to survive! There is one at moms work that has a metal base and wood top so mom is considering that. Guess we are going to have to decorate with industrial items until McKenzie gets older. Mom doesn't like industrial!!!!
I hope you have a beautiful and peaceful day!!!

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you had a wonderful day! It wasn't too bad here. Mostly cloudy the whole day and windy too! Not too warm which was nice since we had to keep the windows closed due to the power washing.
Last night wasn't too bad even though it was really noisy and lasted a long time. Non of us got freaked out at all. Mom left the radio turned up for us ans we slept okay.
McKenzie had to go get her blood work done this morning. It went fine and they were only there about half an hour. They gave McKenzie a treat and everyone made a fuss over her. She loves going to the vet!hahahahahaha We shall see how she feels about it after Thursday when she gets spayed.
Dad is not going to make it home until Saturday so mom is going to try to work tomorrow night and take Thursday night off so she can be home with McKenzie. We have read about what to expect but until it happens we won't know. It says that she should be sleeping a great deal the first 24 hours. Mom has to have her there at 7 am on Thursday and she probably won't be released until 7 pm that night. We think everything is going to be just fine. Keeping her quiet for a few days is going to be the hard part!!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi, Zippy
.3" is more rain that we got since we've had zero. None in sight either. Dad will use watering can to water some new bushes he planted so it all goes where it needs to be and nothing wasted.

Temps here are staying in the normal range after our recent heatwave. The a/c is still on here in the afternoons when it is warmest as the house gets stuffy otherwise.

Always fun to watch the antics of the outside birds.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Heya, Miss Zippy!
We haven't had rain here since last week, but we are supposed to get some tomorrow night. It IS humid and the dew points are high--Mom says she feels like a grease spot right now.

Happy 4th of July to ya! Oooh, corn on the cob! It is funny but Mom picked some up and I have been refusing to eat any. Can you believe that? Mom says she guesses I am waiting for the good stuff from here. I have never turned down c on the c, as I call it. Until now.

Quiet day here, though someone shot off fireworks around 2 AM. Sheesh! Not much going on at all, other than the humidity and dew point being high again. Overcast, looked like it would rain but didn't. Nothing else happening...just me and Mom here. Love it.

Wing hugs coming your way!

I hope you are all having a lovely 4th. Been quiet around here today but I think everyone is resting up so they can make lots of noise tonight. Seems to me if we are celebrating the United State's birthday we should just have cake! I can only hope that they finish up with their fireworks tonight since it's been going on for four nights now. It doesn't bother me at all and so far McKenzie has been okay. Ian said she barked a bit Saturday night but went to sleep after that. Merlin being Merlin doesn't care about anything but food and getting lots of attention.
Back to School is going up in the Seasonal department tonight. Mom is just thrilled! The young man who has taken over the department is doing a great job so it might go a bit smoother this year. Mom only has tonight and then we have our weekend!!
They are going to come power wash the outside of the buildings tomorrow. Mom figured that was next. They didn't say anything about the balconies just that everyone should close their windows. There isn't anything on the balcony that can't get wet so it should be fine.
Enjoy your day and I hope it's lots of fun!

Happy 4th of July! Well, I was as surprised as anyone to be chosen Prom King! Wow! What an honor! But we didn't have internet most of the weekend so I wasn't able to attend the Prom in birdson. It was funny because on the original date, we had internet and we usually don't have it on weekends with lots of tourists coming out to escape the heat of the city!
I like corn too. Every bird in my flock enjoys some corn for dinner every evening since mom knows we enjoy it so much! We have visitors staying here for two weeks. They go back to the US tomorrow early. They like us so that makes it nicer for us. This is their 4th visit here so they just wanted to go to the pool and the guy played a lot of golf with my dad.
It has been super hot here and no rain in the past two weeks. South of us, the city gets rain every afternoon but it doesn't make it up here! Mom mists us and the lovebirds outside in the aviary.
Happy 4th of July! Enjoy the fireworks on tv!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's a cloudy day up here.
Today we are just getting laundry done and getting moms stuff ready for her workweek. I have been helping by doing lots of yelling! I know mom appreciates it so very much!
When mom opened the curtains in the living room this morning there was a pigeon sitting on the eaves looking in. McKenzie was draped over the end of the sofa looking at the bird. Mom went off to start laundry and clean up the kitchen and when she came back 20 minutes later the pigeon was still there. He stayed there for the longest time just looking in! McKenzie didn't bark or move towards him, she just sat staring at him. It was very strange.

I hope you are having a wonderful day!! It's been nice here.
Vent cleaner guys showed up this morning. Mom saw the van yesterday but they must have started at the back of the complex. McKenzie went charging to the door like she was going to bite someone! It was impressive and I'm glad she wants to protect us but the guys were on the roof!! Guess she hasn't figured out that she can't get someone who is on the roof.
Mom bought her a Boo Boo dog today! It's a loofah dog. Mandy had a red one. Mom got McKenzie a lime green one. She really loves it. She really loved the hedgehog too but she ended up ripping it to pieces! The Boo Boo dog makes different noises depending on where you bite it! Kept her busy for a few hours so that was nice!
Mom also found a metal basket to use as a toy box for McKenzie's toys. Had to be metal so she couldn't chew it up. She understands what it's for and they are going to teach her to put her own toys away! Now that should be interesting!
Enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Yeah, there's Gracie and Sunny, a courted, conjugal couple. Gracie flew out of her residence one day and came over to mine checking me out. Just curious, nothing funny like. They keep to themselves and are quiet. Mom is hoping that someone who is a "tiel person" will give them the home they deserve. Right now, they can stay with us until whenever. Mom started up with our blogs again since she retired but gets really annoyed with the site as all the parronts do, but says philosophically, "you get what you pay for".

I hope you are having a fun day!
I had computer problems because mom clicked on something she should not have! Ian fixed it up for her and told her no more clinking!hehehehehe It did cut into my computer time so if I have not been over I'm sorry! We can blame it all on mom!
No tree trimmers or gardeners here today. They have been here for the past two days and it's been noisy!! We did see a vent cleaning truck but they are not around my place. They are putting new flags up front. Green and Blue! Seahawk colors!! I don't imagine they planned it that way but it's still cool!
Wonder if they are going to have an inspection or if they are going to sell the place??? Probably not since I know they make lots of money off it.
They were giving away tickets to see the Seahawk practice today but they were all gone when mom logged in. It was suppose to start at 10 am but they were all gone at 10 am!! Season ticket holders got first crack at the them! They let the public attend about 12 practices a year. Mom wanted to go on a day when Taima the hawk was there! She loves the players but meeting Taima would be awesome! She knows a few season ticket holders so next year she will get one of them to get her tickets. It's free except for 8$ to pay for the bus to take you to the VMAC center. No parking for visitors there so you have to park at the movie theater across the freeway and take a bus!
Enjoy the day and I hope you get to have lots of fun!!

Sounds like you had quite an adventure with the flock & skins! Goodtimes. I know what ya mean about not liking traveling in a car--we have been taken to St. Louis before, about an 8 hour trip. It has been years, though. Mom feels that we are getting too old for the stress of traveling and being in new places.

The prom Milonga was moved to this Saturday night, so maybe we can go and celebrate...always a great time! In the meantime, let's head to the castle kitchen!

  Hi, Zippy
We were cooler here yesterday though temps had been in the very low 90s to upper 80s for our area. Had at least one spare the air day but yesterday was cooler and much more breezy. Think the warmness will return for the w/e but having a bit of respite helps. Our mom was pretty melty when she had to get in the hot car to come home from work.

Since we were hot here imagine Chico had even higher temps since they usually are warmer than us. Didn't check though. Skinsis cousin lives there but the parronts don't talk to her since everyone is busy. The younger folk are all on F/B so catch up there.

  Heya, Miss Zippy!
No Skinsibs here to eat up all my goodies, so they last me all week! I will share them with Mom. I am pretty spoiled!

Today was laundry day (again!) so I supervised from a distance. It was in the mid-70's, and partly cloudy. Nice to have the patio doors open.

Mom chatted with Kim on the phone. She was so happy she got a recliner that is motorized and will help her get up. She says it has two motors--one to get up, the other for the legs. She also bought her hubby a recliner, but not motorized. That will free up a lot of room in her living room once the big couch is out of there. She was really happy, too, as she walked well at the store yesterday. Mom may go see her on Friday. If not she will get there next week for sure.

Other than that, nothing else happening here. Nice quiet humpday!

Wing hugs coming your way,

  'Toos Day Fishing Tales
'Toos day morning, zippy surprises all the fisherbirds with a sunnyside up egg breakfast with hash browns and bacon! They enjoy the early feast dockside at the marina before Peppino rings the ship's bell, signaling it is time to leave! Dixie toots the horn as Hulk drives the Gizzy Mo into the bay. Raffi, Willie & Picabo consult the fishing charts and decide to go to Peppermint Point and yry their luck with muskie fishing. They warn Zippy, Peppino and Dixie to ve careful since these are huge fish and could easily drag the smaller birds overboard!
The only thing all morning to fall overboard is Willie's sandwich at lunch time! He tried to feed a seagull and the ham sandwich flew alright- out of his talons and into the sea! Maybe some muskie will enjoy that! Hehehe! Since they had no luck at Peppermint Point, Picabo suggests they go to Buoy 80 in the harbor. Raffi agrees that fish like to hang around buoys! He says there are always seagulls fishing there and they eat fish so there must be fish!
Hulk anchors the boat and Dixie suggests they do some net fishing. Hulk lays out the nets with Willie and Zippy's help. They are heavy and it takes all the fisherbirds to lift them over the side and into the water. Whoops! There goes Peppino, over the side. Willie throws a life preserver to his frother and lifts him out of the water! Peppino looks like a drownded rat! As he dries off, the birds see all sorts of rainbow colors swirling inside the net! Hooray, shouts Hulk, as they reel in the net filled with fish! Raffi says it is so many fish, we will have to sell them to Ms. BB at the TPB&G and she can host a fish fry! That sounds like a greyt idea says Picabo. Hulk fires up the engines and the Gizzy Mo heads back to BC, filled with fish and happy fisherbirds! Raffi checks his watch and says, we have to hurry- the shuttle is loading up at the KB for the camping trip to Yosemite with Miss Fakco. We sure don't want to miss that. Dixie reminds the birds that they already have all their camping gear on the Gizzy Mo so it will be easy to just transfer it to the shuttle! Willie says they can dock at the bar and the Pelican Moving Company can unload the fish off the boat while the fisher birds run to make the shuttle!
Picabo thanks every bird for the wonderful fishing trip!

  Fishing Monday
The sun rose early and shined right into Dixie's eyes, waking him up! The other fisher virds were snoring, especially Raffi, so Dixie decided to wake them all up. Afterall, he was hungry! So he wiggled Willie's hammock and Willie fell out! That was so funny so Willie and Dixie wiggled Picabo's hammock and dumped him out too! Then they did the same to Hulk and Peppino. They were nicer to Zippy and jiggled her enough to wake her up, nothing more! Picabo said no breakfast unless we catch it! So the fisher birds piled on board the Tizzy Mo and sorted out their fishing tackle. Zippy stayed on shore to get the fire going and receive a special delivery of Cookie Bucks Coffee. The boys set off to catch breakfast. Raffi and Willie catch two big lake trout and the boys think this is enough for them all for breakfast. Zippy roasts the fish over the campfire and every bird enjoys a nice breakfast. Peppino rubs his full belly!
Time to strike camp and head to Rippling Water Point. Hulk says he hears the fishing is good here. The fisher birds spend all morning here with only one casualty. Willie was casting his kine and hooked a super big fish, Raffi! At least he hooked his fishing hat and the hat fkew out over the water. Dixie and Peppino took the raft out to pick up the hat before it got away. In all the excitement, Zippy fell over board and Hulk jumped over to help her. The water was so nice, picabo and Dixie jumped in for a swim too. Then all the fisher birds swam and played in the water! Zippy packed fish tacos for lunch so every bird ate as their feathers dried off. It was very hot so they decided to call it a day and pulled into Red Cat Marina. They hung their hammocks on deck for siestas. And when they all woke up, it was dinnertime so they went to the Harbor Grill and Chill for dinner. A little tired of fish, they all ate juicy steaks and leafy green salads with pudding cake topped with pistachio ice cream for dessert. Back on the Gizzy Mo, they sang the sings of their people until they all fell deep asleep in their hammocks, smelling if fish!

  Hello Zippy~
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!
I hope your day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love ya ~ Sugar ♥

Come visit me, Sugar ~ Thanks for all the AWESOME Memories.

  Fishing highlights
The Gizzy Mo shoved off from the dock this morning for a few days of fishing! Hulk was at the wheel with Peppino as lookout for a good fishing spot. Picabo and Raffi read the navegation charts. Willie, Zippy and Dixie enjoyed the scenery and watched the sea gulls enjoy fishy meals. The fist stop was Hidden Bay where the fisher birds dropped anchor for a morning of fishing fun. Peppino was lucky with 8 nice trout and Dixie caught sone sunfish which were too littke si he had to throw them back!
As the sun rose high in the sky, Picabo and Zippy chopped up chunks of raw fish that Hulk and Raffi caught. Then they chopped onions and tomatoes and cilantro and threw it all in a big bowl. Zippy squeezed five limes into the bowl and stirred it all up. Dixie got out the tortilla chips and Hulk handed out the cold root beers! All the fisher birds enjoyed the ceviche and drinks.
In the afternoon they sailed to Windy Cove which turned out to not be windy at all. There seemed to be no fish biting there but it was hot so the fisher birds jumped in the warm water for a nice swim.
Then Hulk guided the Gizzy Mo to Blue Spring Lagoon where they set up camp on land and roasted the fish they caught all day. After songs around the campfire, they hung hammocks in the trees and fell asleep!

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Nice here. Not too hot and breezy too!
I'm glad I could get on BC today. Yesterday was nuts! I'm really sorry that the Milonga had to be postponed.
Mom made it to PetCo and got me the correct food this time! She also found out that Joy, the little Blue Quaker who had been there for 3 months was adopted! YAY! Well, actually she was purchased but she has a home now and mom is happy about that.
Mom picked up a new toy for McKenzie. It's a Hedgehog and she LOVES it! It's doesn't squeak but it made this funny kind of a laughing noise. Well I should say it made a funny noise because after just one day, it is now a silent Hedgehog! One day! She still LOVES it and is dragging it all over the place. She even tried to take it outside with her!
Mom got the first wave of Back to School done last night. Great time to get any stationery stuff. Mom is waiting for the little notebooks to show up. She always buys 10 of them since they drop them to 1$. We use them to write down stuff for the calendar page and other stuff mom needs to remember. There is a lot of that "needs to remember" stuff!hahahaha
I hope the day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love ya ~ Sugar ♥
