Hi! My name is Zippy; Grey Bird #275918 for BOTM!!.

I am a Cockatiel from Lansing, MI.

Zipperoo, Zip-Dip, Zipper bird

18 years old   F

Cockatiel

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 great day! We are actually happy that it is Monday! I know that sounds crazy but it was not a good weekend. Way too much running around and things to get done. I like it when it's boring around here!
Today is boring so I am very happy. I've been busy ripping up the newspaper on the bottom of the play cage and watching the dog run around squeaking her toy. When the squeaker breaks in the toy she doesn't play with them anymore! I suppose it's just like when I destroy one of my toys!
They had a 5 mile back up on the freeway this morning because there was a duck family trying to cross. The troopers stopped the traffic and herded the duck over to the river. The freeway runs right along the Puyallup River. I am happy to report that mama duck and her ducklings are all safe and back at the river! Hope they stay there!
Enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It was really pretty this morning but now the sky is getting dark and I think we are going to have rain the rest of the day.
We are finishing up laundry which is pretty boring. Mom says is necessary! I suppose!
My play cage was all cleaned up this morning when I came out so I am going to have to spend the rest of the day redecorating it. I don't understand why mom can't appreciate how hard I work at making all those lovely piles of wood!! I know she wasn't too happy about me trying to feed the puppy again. I figured that if those pellets are good for me they have to be good for the puppy too! Right? I am keeping the good stuff for myself I must admit, but McKenzie seemed to appreciate what I shared with her!
Enjoy the day!

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a great day!! I'm really sorry I didn't get around much this weekend. Mom was trying to rest to get rid of the pink eye/cold.
Unfortunately moms eyes started bothering her last night at work. She had her drops with her and used them. They have been waxing the floors for the past two nights so it may just be the fumes from that. Mom stayed as far away as she could but had to walk through the area to get to the office. Tonight the store is closing two hours early so that the system can be shut down for updates. It won't be back online until 4 am so mom will be helping the freight guys.
Mom is trying to rest during the day but I think that "I need to rest" translates to "let's chase the cat" in dog language. I have been a very good nurse and sit right next to mom and keep her company! She only has tonight and then it's our weekend again! YAY!
I have taken over the Kissing Booth for the next 2 weeks. It's all about food!! Come on over and have a bite to eat! We will be doing all sorts of great snacks!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's spectacular!

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a great day! Sorry I didn't get a note out yesterday but mom has pink eye and a cold and feels miserable. She didn't go to work last night. The pink eye stated in the right eye only but when she woke up last night it was both eyes. Her vision was pretty blurry so she figured she had better not try driving until they cleared up some. They feel better today but she still looks really weird! She is using the drops and it shouldn't be too long before the redness goes away.
I have to say that I have been an excellent nurse! McKenzie and Merlin are not being so good. They both want attention all the time! I guess they still have not figured out who is the favorite around here!
Merlin got behind the washer this morning and mom had to pull it out to get him out! Right now they are both taking naps so I have a chance to get some notes done!
We are getting some laundry done and George and Gracie need to be cleaned out again. Dad bought the wrong filters and they are not working very well. Mom will have to pick some up next time she is down in town.
I hope you have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's very spring like here and I have been enjoying the sunshine!
We did chores yesterday since mom was off. Mostly going through old mail and straightening up the linen closet. Mom got some shelf liner at the dollar store and lined all the shelves in there. It looks very nice and we even found more stuff to donate to the Goodwill!!
We really should have gotten on BC earlier than we did but we had no idea they were going to take the site down last night. It would be really nice if they gave us a "heads up" but I suppose it is not important to them. All the sites were down so they must have been doing maintenance on the server.
It's back to work for mom tonight so we are getting the rest of the laundry done. My play cage was all cleaned when I came out this morning and I have new toys also. I guess I am going to be a busy bird today!!
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's just spectacular!

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Another pretty sunny one here!
I think they have finished with the road construction! YAY! It took 2 weeks but everything has been paved now. They still have to put the barriers back into the center and paint the stripes but I'm sure that will not be as loud as a steam roller! They had most of the road shut down last night so mom had to cut through the markets parking lot to get home!
Mom loved Captain America Civil War. Captain America has always been moms favorite. She admire the way he does the right thing even if it's not the easiest or popular thing. He is an honorable character!
They did not get back until Midnight. McKenzie did great in her crate even though she got put in there 2 hours early. Mom got us up when she got home and took McKenzie for a nice walk. Then she made us a waffle! We had a Midnight Waffle Party!! We only stayed up for half an hour and then we all went back to bed. It was fun but since I'm a bit sleepy today, I don't think we will be doing it much!
Mom has to go to PetCo today to get McKenzie her Science Diet and some new toys! That puppy goes through toys almost as fast as I do! I'm impressed!
Enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Turned out to be a sunny one here.
It's movie night so I guess we are all going to bed early. Mom is taking McKenzie on a very long walk before so she will be tired out. Mom said we could get up for a while when she gets home. They are going to see Captain America Civil War.
We didn't do much today. The kitchen always seems to need cleaning and there is always laundry. Tomorrow we will be straightening out the pantry yet again! Seems like that always needs to be done too!
Road work continues at night. Hard to tell what they are doing but the left lanes are still not paved. They put some sort of pink canvas looking stuff in holes and piled asphalt on top. That part was paved over when mom drove this morning. Hopefully the left lanes will be paved tonight and that should be it!
Have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Zippy
It's Pepperbird. I'm sorry that it's been so long since mom has blogged for me. I have missed you. I brought our favorite, POPCORN and hoping you will want to snuggle & watch a movie with me. How about PAULIE, one of my favorites...

I hope you had a great day! I didn't think I was going to get any notes done today at all! We had tons to do and mom still has a few more things to do but she is going to wait until we are all in bed! I don't know why? I thought all the screaming I did was a real help.
The complex is doing a HUD inspection tomorrow. I guess they are trying to get certified so they can rent to low income people and get subsidized by the government. I imagine they lost a lot of people when they raised the rent so high. They could have just lowered it and maybe people wouldn't have moved.
We had to clean up the house and the storage room. Dad had lots of junk in there and it took a while. There is still stuff to do but like I said, mom is waiting for us to go to bed.
The construction guys showed up a little while ago. They are blocking off the right 2 lanes on my side of the street. Guess it's going to be another noisy night. They did take a 3 day weekend so I am thankful for that. I think they will be done in a few more days.
Have a lovely evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Once again dad has a doctor appointment at our VA medical clinic, that just cuts the heart out of our day!

Have a great Monday dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I can't believe I'm BOTD! I am so excited and so grateful to all my friends here. It is still such an honor to be picked from all the awesome birds here to have a day in the spotlight!
We have had a crazy morning already! It was pretty loud last night since they were paving the road across the street. Who knew that paving included pounding? I didn't! It was the stream roller I guess! Mom cranked the radio up but you could still feel a bit of shaking. I squawked a few times and Merlin spent most of the night in the window watching it all! McKenzie slept through it all!! They were done by 4 am but I think I'll be grabbing a nap later!
We have a wetland that runs the length of the complex. It is fenced in but it's just a plank fence and not totally to the ground. When mom was walking McKenzie this morning, McKenzie stuck her head under the fence that encloses the wetland and pulled out a Mole! Thank goodness mom has been working on "drop" with her because when mom screamed, she dropped it! The poor thing was flailing around and so scared! McKenzie knew she had done something bad cause she flattened out on the walkway and looked guiltily at mom!
Mom locked McKenzie in the car and grabbed the car towel. She picked up the little Mole and checked him out. Thankfully he wasn't hurt! He kept flailing and growled at mom! Mom crawled against the fence and found his hole and set him down there. He dug a little and then popped back down in the hole. Mom told McKenzie that there will be no hunting allowed! We read later on that coyotes dig up moles for food. Dad thinks any kind of dog would do it and that is probably true. Obviously there will be no more walking anywhere near the fence! I don't think moms heart could take another incident like that!hahahahaha She was so scared that McKenzie had killed it.
Come on over to the castle today! Mikey and Kacey have had Lizzy and Chipper prepare a wonderful luncheon for us! I can't wait to see you!!!
Enjoy your day!

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you had a wonderful day! We did the chores we never got done yesterday. Kind of boring but mom put Minions on for me while she was cleaning the kitchen! I love those squeaky yellow guys!
McKenzie was a bit rowdy this afternoon. She thinks that the cat is going to play with her like another puppy would but we all know that is not going to happen. He sits and whacks at her and whines for mom to come pick him up. I think he is doing that on purpose to that mom will pick him up. He certainly could get up on something, like he usually does, but I think he just wants mom to rescue him!
The road construction is continuing at night. The trucks just stared showing up. Mom put the radio on a bit louder last night so we wouldn't have to listen to the beeping when the trucks back up. Mom was hoping they would be farther along at this point. They still have not paved across the street from us so maybe tonight. Then they will start tearing up our side of the street! The parts they have finished do look very nice and are really smooth to drive on!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! }

I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I did not get many notes out yesterday just because we ran out of time! Actually, it's all moms fault since she fell asleep when she got home from work! Guess she was tired but it sure did put us behind! We managed to get the stuff done that needed to get done but it was time for her to go to bed after that! She only has one more night to work and then we get our weekend!
Really nothing exciting going on. Jennifer is not feeling well so McKenzie and I are trying to be quite so she can sleep! Merlin sleeps all day anyway so it's no big deal for him! I'm doing pretty good but McKenzie doesn't understand quiet yet.

  Morning Ms Zippy & Polly my dear friends~Jenny
...molt and itch go hand in hand, we must all learn to live with the inconvenience! We are having very seasonal weather, with temps in the 70's, we'll take that all the time! Today will be a carbon copy/cookie cutter day for dad, but he is starting to get around much better, but still can not stand up for very long at one time, he is getting anxious to just drive our SUV again, before he forgets how! Not much happening today, maybe a bit of laundry later on, depending on how much strength is left! Have a great Saturday, dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Saturday love for today & always, Jenny, Ms LaLo, Angel Christy, & the cripple...

PS~Life is good, it sure beats the alternative...

I hope you are having a great day! It's only 80 here today so that is tolerable! There is a nice breeze and mom has the window open so I'm enjoying that. My cage was all cleaned out again this morning so I've been working on redecorating.
McKenzie had an upset tummy this morning. Ian bought her a rawhide bone at Petco yesterday and it did not agree with her. Mom will stick with the Dingo bones since they have never upset her tummy. Petco only had the tiny Dingo bones so mom will pick up the more appropriate sized ones at her work. She is feeling fine now and wants to eat everything in sight! Just like normal!hehehehehe
We have been doing chores most of the day. Mom washed the winter jackets and is going to hang them in the hall closet. She got the stove scrubbed and wants to get some things done in her bedroom later. She will have to wait for Jennifer to get home so that she can occupy McKenzie while mom and I go in the bedroom. If McKenzie is in the bedroom you have to watch her all the time because she likes to grab books and try to chew them up! That is a huge NO NO in this house! I don't get to do it so she can't either!
I hope the day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a wonderful day.
Mom is having one of those days where she can not get anything done! I blame it all on the dog!hehehehehe Mom says there is blame to share!
I have been throwing pieces of wood out to McKenzie and the dork tries to eat them!! Mom asked me to stop it but I don't think it's my fault if the dog is a dope!
When I got bored with that game I decided it was time to rip the paper up on the bottom of the cage. That always gets the puppy running!! I think she wants to rip paper up also. Mom finally had to put her on the leash to keep her away from my cage. Merlin started howling for food so mom filled up his dry food bowl. He took a few bites and then walked over and started whacking the dog. Guess he was jealous because McKenzie was paying attention to me! The turtles even got into it by pushing their filter over!! Mom said something about needing a vacation!hehehehehehe

Hope you are having a great day! It's just beautiful up here today. Suppose to be near 80 again tomorrow. I'm enjoying it.
We are cooking some sketti right now and I can't wait! Mom got a huge tub of the organic salad greens so maybe I'll have a few of those too.
Not much else going on since it's Sunday. McKenzie saw a new dog moving into the apartment above the office building and she keeps wanting to go out to see if she can meet him! No luck yet but she did get to see her poodle friends Molly and Jack! She is becoming a social butterfly!hahahahaha She is still very submissive with any other dog even the poodles. Maybe this is just the way she is which is not a bad thing! Rather have her sweet than trying to run after every dog she sees!

I hope the day is going great! Mom was gone for nearly 2 hours getting dad to the airport. Not a ton of traffic this morning but there is more up near Seattle then there is down here. McKenzie really enjoyed it. She watches planes. Don't know if that is unusual or not but every time one of the big transports come over to land at JBLM, she stops to watch!
She managed to get out of her seatbelt when mom was leaving the airport and came to sit in the front! I don't think she understands that dad is not coming back later!
When mom got home they were starting the pressure washing outside. It was very loud and McKenzie and Merlin got scared. I was just fine! Mom moved us all and we spent an hour waiting for it to be done! Now we have wait for the stairs to be dry so we can put our doormat back out!

  Hi Zippy~
I hope you weren't alone for too long today. I was lucky since mom just took Ian and Jennifer to work and then picked them up. Friday she has to drive dad to SeaTac, our airport. He is finally going back to his truck in Reno. It was suppose to be 2 weeks to get it fixed but we are half way through week 3 at this point. It will be an entire month before he gets back out on the road! All of this from some guy backing up into dads truck! Dad wasn't in the truck at the time but the headlights did not survive and he had to get a new bumper!!! It's been nice having him around.

  Heya, Miss Zippy!
We got to 45 here, but it felt more like the low 30's. Big wind gusts! the sun was out but the wind really cooled things down. Glad I am not an outside birdie.

Mom went to see Kim today--her IV antibiotics are over, though she has the PIC line in place still. Her foot is looking better--the wound folks came in while Mom was there, and did a dressing change. She has a hole that is a bit bigger than a silver dollar on the bottom of the foot, and it is about 3/8 inch in depth. She still has the wound drain in it it, but that is really making things heal up well. One of the wound gals was massaging lotion on Kim's good foot--and so Mom took her shoe off and held up her leg (not getting any where near the bed) as if to say: massage my foot, too, please! The gal laughed her head off.

Wing hugs coming atcha!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Another quiet one around here. I've been busy trying to get the puppy to come close enough so that I can give her a nip! Mom keeps telling me no but McKenzie is so trusting and really wants to come closer. Mom told me it wasn't nice to tease her like that so I'm back to chewing some toys for now.
Mom managed to break the little toe on her left foot so she is not walking very quickly today. She doesn't even remember how she did it! She walks into things all the time so she probably banged it on something yesterday! She is a real klutz!!

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a great day! Quiet one around here! Mom got most of the kitchen cleaned up but then McKenzie started chasing the cat again so she had to stop and get the puppy. We have managed to get some laundry done but mom is going to have to finish up the kitchen to get George and Gracie's tank cleaned out. I suppose I will help by supervising.
Starting out cloudy here but it's suppose to be back to sunshine this afternoon. We are getting spoiled with all the sunshine lately! No complaints because it's been very pretty. I have been enjoying looking at all the trees coming alive with color and the gardeners planted some primroses out front on Friday. They look so pretty!!
I hope your day is wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. Very pretty here still and I'm enjoying the sunshine.
Not much going on here today. McKenzie is taking a nap so we are trying to get the notes done before she wakes up. Jennifer is trying to finish her book for the book club meeting tomorrow. It's called Night Circus. Mom tried reading it a few years ago but never really got into the story. It was a bit slow but she may try it again when Jennifer is done. Jennifer hasn't formed an opinion yet so it will be interesting to see how the book club meeting goes.
Mom has read two of the Library's book club selection. She was okay with "Wild" but absolutely loved "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet". It was a wonderful story about a Chinese boy and Japanese girl who become friends in Seattle during WWII.
I should never let mom get started on books!! This note would be going on for days and days!!hehehehehe
Enjoy your day and I hope it's just spectacular!

  Heya, Miss Zippy!
It was only 38 here, and we had rain and snow showers off and on all day long. And it was dark and grey, too. Tomorrow is supposed to be another chilly day, with snow. How much? Who knows. We hope not a whole lot but Mama Nature will do her thing and we will find out after it is over.

Nice day of snuggle with Mom. She did her exercises and took a nice shower. If it is okay tomorrow she will run to PickNSave (groceries) for some stuff, and come home and do laundry.

Wing hugs coming your way!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a fabulous day! Very sunny and beautiful here. We are suppose to hit 80 today. Not sure if it will happen but there are so many trees outside my bedroom window that it won't feel warm in there anyway.
Mom and dad went to Costco this morning. They went right when it opened so that it wouldn't be too hot for McKenzie in the car. They parked in the shade and left the windows cracked. It wasn't even 60 at that point so she was fine.
McKenzie had a great time at her very first Spa Day yesterday. Her groomers was named Sarah and she is a very nice young lady. McKenzie just loved her and she was very patient with McKenzie when she started to freak out over the blow dryer. Mom took McKenzie over there this morning to give Sarah a thank you card and a tip. McKenzie thought she was going to get another bath!hahahaha Wonder why she likes it at the groomers and not at home?? McKenzie got another food bowl while they were at Petsmart. You are not going to believe this but she chewed up her food bowl! What was she thinking?? She got a lovely pink bowl that is stainless steel on the inside. If there is a way to chew it up I promise you McKenzie will find it! Mom wanted to get her the Seahawk Hoodie but dad thinks we should wait to see if she is going to get any bigger. I think dad doesn't want her wearing clothes but mom is determined that when football season comes around, McKenzie will be wearing the Seahawk colors.
I hope the day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love You ~ Sugar ♥

  HI ZIPPY
HAPPY HUMPDAY


the house is over run with ants. we have never had a problem like this before. mom cleans our cages everyday. when mom changes Cori soft food her cup is full of ants but you never see any crawling into the cage. there has never been one ant found in MY cage because I AM ON THE BALL and destroy them on sight. if it wasn't for the cats mom would let me loose and that would solve the ant problem. i am the destroyer of all crawly things.
love Boo Boo

  Heya, Miss Zippy!
It was another chilly day here, but it did get to 48 for a while. Grey and rainy, too. When Mom got me up this morning, I was still sleeping! Dark day out there. She ran to Trader Joe's to pick up a couple things, and then came home. Mom and I had a greyt day--we watched the Brewers win their game today. That was cool. I love it when Mom makes noises at the TV, and claps and hollers. I joined right in!

Tomorrow will be a day at home, Mom thinks. Snow showers and rain, and a high of 40. Wonder what happened to spring?

Wing hugs coming your way!

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Very pretty up here again. We are suppose to be reaching 80 tomorrow. A bit early for that but it's only one day. The 70's are perfectly lovely and I think we should just have 70 year round!hehehehehe
I really enjoyed the new Star Wars. There was lots of stuff blowing up and you know that I love that. I think dad liked it too. Mom, Ian and Jennifer had already seen it at the movie theater but said there were things they missed the first time.
I have had a lovely afternoon hanging out with mom. I got to have her all to myself. McKenzie is gone for a spa day at the groomers. First time she has been there. She was putting on her cuteness when mom dropped her off and everyone fell in love with her. She really is a sweet puppy and is very nice to everyone she meets.
I got to run around the living room and that was lots of fun. I got picked up when I started to chew on the carpet! Go figure!
Dad and Ian have gone to pick up McKenzie. She just had a bath and they are going to file her nails also. She has very sharp nails.
The rest of the day will be spent doing the chores we should have done earlier!hahahahaha Playing was much more fun and the chores will still be there later.
Enjoy your day!

  Hey Zippy
You are so right when you say misery loves company.Those critters are all over the place in my area!!!

Mommy checked with the exterminator and they said since those critters are coming from the hills surrounding our house we can't do much until they decide to move on.My mommy also asked about spraying the hill side and they can't do it because of the other wild life that lives there.

Today's another hot day.Tomorrow it should be cooling off and we are expecting 5 days of rain.Fat Chance huh???

Have a happy humpday
Love your buddy

  Heya, Miss Zippy!
It was sunny out for most of the day. We are getting snow showers and rain now. Mom went to the polls and voted today. She was 212 in her district, so it was not a huge turnout before noon. After she voted, she went to visit Kim and had a good visit with her. Kim was up and walking around with her physical therapy folks, so that is awesome. She is off the continuous oxygen, so that is wonderful. The place she is at is good, and they do a good job taking care of her. After that, Mom came home and played catch with me and my bouncy balls, and we took a little nap after that. Now it is snuggle on Mom's shoulder time.

Wing hugs coming your way!
