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.

Hi! My name is Zippy; V4 Amando #226029 BOTM

I am a Cockatiel from Lansing, MI.

Zipperoo, Zip-Dip, Zipper bird

16 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!.

  Hi Zippy
That party room is so much fun! I think we all had a blast in there!
It's go cart day again at the castle! Today we will race each other, then see if we can maybe have a contest to make a new model of a go cart. There are blocks of wood, tires, and lots of things to play with at the track when we are done riding.
Mom was a little worried today. She had to go to the museum, which is about a half hour drive. The freezing rain is falling, as predicted. For a change the guessers were right on target with the times. They said it would start late morning and continue to early afternoon. It took forever to drive, but she got home safely.
What's really funny is it was a bunch of PreK kids. Mom had an 'older' group, which meant they were 4. They should only schedule the little ones for 30 to 45 minutes, but these were scheduled for an hour tour. Herding cats, anyone? Cats with the attention span of goldfish, that is...
Other than that, there's nothing new. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, King Peppino

I thought I'd write to you, since Falco already voted for Polly. This way you both get a vote today.
Today we're going to stay in the party room, it's a lot of fun in here! I'm going to put on the disco ball, too, so it flashes all different colors on the dance floor. We can do something else tomorrow, but today let's party on!

  Hi Zippy & sweet Polly, from your Jenny & Christy
Unlike our dear friends on the East Coast, we are having very seasonal Winter weather (THANKFULLY), but we pray for our friends out East, we truly care! We are all doing quite well, even the Zig is behaving better, silly little Macaw! Dad went out and give the cold outside birdies some of our leftover seeds, he can't stand to see them be hungry, we love all birds! Don't forget puppy bowl on Sunday, they are all so cute and all those dogs are up for adoption, very heart warming! Sugar has always been a dear friend, but since Art's Lakeland flock picked up her banner, Angel Christy is inching closer to the 10K HOF Club, you will never hear our sweet Angel beg for votes, she has too much pride and dignity for that! Happy ToosDay dear ones, give my love to all in your happy family, see ya tomorrow...

Love from Jenny, Angel Christy & our Dallas flockily

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Oh you are ice fishing too! I have been getting updates from Willie about that trip!
Mom spent way too much time running around today and I didn't like it at all. Everyone else had to go to work and all at different times. Dad was going to leave early but they changed his pick up time. He was gone for an hour and a half this morning and told mom he was going to get some groceries for the truck. He never made it so mom took him to the market before she took him to the truck! Just crazy today and it didn't seem like a day off for mom at all!
The good news is that the NFL said that Taima can lead the Seahawks out of the tunnel for the Superbowl! YAY! I don't know what the Seahawks would do without him! He is a very important member of the team! Even people who don't like the Seahawks have to admit that Taima is the coolest mascot in the entire NFL!
Dad tried putting the old phone, that went through the washer, in a bag of rice to see if it would dry out that way but so far it still won't turn on. I don't suppose it matters now since he has the new one.
I hope your evening is a relaxing one! Mom and I certainly plan on one!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you guys are having a great day! It's been boring around here but that is just fine with me. Mom worked last night and now we have our weekend again! I think she should take 3 days off every week!!
Dad washed his $300 Galaxy phone in the washing machine last night! Guess what? It doesn't work anymore!hahahahaha He is a bigger dork than mom is and that's saying something! He really can't function without his phone. It's a very sad, sad thing!hehehehehehe
He went by Costco and got another one. Let's hope he doesn't wash this one! He got the warranty on it but I do not think it will cover things done to it by dumb users!

I hope you are having a great day! Dad took the picture of the 3 of us waiting for mom to come back! We are always somewhere near her and dad thought it was funny how we were all just sitting around waiting for mom. She is the one who feeds us and plays with us so of course we love to hang out with her!
We had a whole lot of cleaning to get done this morning and then dad took over the computer too. That leaves me with no time to blog since mom is working tonight! I think dad is leaving tomorrow so I'll have complete control over my computer then!

  Hi Zippy!
Due to popular demand (Hulk), we are keeping the fish camp open all week for more fun and ice fishing!
Today Zippy has promised fish tacos, also a Hulkster special request! And a big bonfire tonite! I think we have to do that on shore so as not to melt the ice, right?
Picabo pulls on two warm sweaters and four pairs of socks before slipping on his Ugg boots! Let's hit the ice and see what we can catch today! The sooner we catch fish, the sooner we eat fish tacos!

  Hello Zippy~~
I hope you had a wonderful day! My little Budgie cousin Paige flew to the Rainbow Bridge this morning. Mom's sister took her and her fisters, Pru and Piper, in last year. She isn't really sure how old they are. It's very sad but at least I know she was loved and had a good life for the last year. The people who had them before never spent any time with them and they didn't even have any toys!
Dad made it home today so he'll be here for a day or two. He has a doctor's appointment in the morning. He has to fast for 12 hours so he only has an hour to go! He had better get to eating!hahahaha He wanted pizza so I am getting another lovely piece of crust today! That is twice in a week! Mom told me not to get use to it! Bummer!!!
Enjoy your evening! Sleep tight and sweet dreams!

I'm so happy you brought all those cool spices and stuff! Every meal has a different flavor- sort of hard to tell we're eating so much fish! Hehehe! And tonite's fish sticks- divine! Did you see Pumbaa today? He had such a big fish on the line that if Raffi and Hulk didn't grab him, he would have gone down the ice hole! And then- popsicle! And Willie got that big old popsicle fish. Do you think it will be thawed out in time for breakfast?
It is so cold here tonite! I brought eggstra quilts to keep us warm. Let's tell ghost stories and nibble in your fish sticks!

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you had a fantastic day! We did!! Now that mom's heart rate is back to an acceptable level I am having her blog for me! For a few minutes there I thought I was going to have to perform parrot resuscitation on her! That is when you bite them really hard to bring them back for the edge of hysteria!hahahaha HEY! It works!
What a great game between two awesome teams! The Packers should be very proud of themselves! This is what a championship game should look like! Now we have to see if it's the Colts or the Patriots who will be joining us in Arizona!
The day started out crazy so it is appropriate that it continued to be a crazy Sunday!
Jennifer was burning a candle in her room. She keeps the door closed so that no smoke comes out but she had her window open and the wind was blowing so some of the smoke blew into the hallway ans set off the smoke alarm! The dog freaked out and peed all the way down the hallway! I was screeching and it was pandemonium around here! Mom calmed me down and cleaned up after Mandy and gave us all snacks! We are hoping for a nice quiet evening!
I hope you have a great evening too!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Happy TGI Blue Friday! There are lots of events going on up here before the big game on Sunday. It is going to be an exciting weekend up here!
Jennifer's boss sold her playoff tickets for $500 a piece!!! She is a season ticket holder so they always get a chance to buy their seats first. She is going to use the money to buy plane tickets to Arizona to see the Superbowl! She is that confident that the Seahawks are going to the Superbowl again! I must say that I agree with her! GO HAWKS!!!
It's a pretty quiet day around here. Everyone else is at work and when Ian gets off he is going to take the Sounder train up to Seattle to visit with his friends again. The one who lives in Pennsylvania is going home tomorrow.
Me and mom are going to continue with cleaning and do some cooking. Mom is off for 3 days after Saturday night so we don't need to cook too many meals. I think baking some cornbread would be an excellent idea!!
I hope your day is just perfect!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Ice fishing sounds good to me! I guess we wouldn't even have to travel too far north with all the freezing cold weather right how. Polar vortex? Maybe even stay in MI!
We had a big storm here in the middle of the nite but this morning it was all sunny and we got to go outside on the porch after my parronts ran errands. Yesterday it poured rain and i was on the porch with my parronts and didn't i just prance and parade and flap my wings and enjoy getting wet! So much fun!
I will see if Hulk and Raffi and Willie are up for some ice fishing this weekend! It will be fun! Bring the frying pan! Yum!

We are heading to the roof of the castle tonight to see Popeye's observatory in action. There are several telescopes there so we can all look at the night skies and see what is up there. Today in the castle, take some time to look around and let me know if you have a particular place you want to see.
Congrats to TiPaul on getting to the 10k Hall of Fame.
Congratulations to the Packers! We are so happy they won. We didn't care about the other game, mom says we didn't have a pony in that race, get it??? Haha, she's silly.
There were delays all over the place this morning, we had freezing rain and it was dangerous. Mom was a bit late getting to the center, because of the weather. She waited until nearly 10 to walk the dogs, after she saw the salt truck go up the street.
At the center today she cleaned up and fed the outdoor raccoons, then did the main aviary. There were only pigeons in there, but that's usual in the winter. 8 pigeons make a big mess, too! After she was done with her work, she and the other volunteers learned the new disinfecting procedure for the center. Hopefully, it will help to keep all the animals safe from any new disease while they are there. They have never caught any new things, but it's just another layer of protection for them.
I hope you are having a good day there and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, King Peppino

I hope you are having a wonderful day!!
You will not believe what happened here last night! Mom was cleaning up the kitchen and put the trash bag out on the balcony. Sneaky Merlin went out there without mom knowing and jumped over the balcony!! He is perfectly fine, which is a miracle, but mom says unless he has his harness and leash on he is never going out there again!
She noticed he was missing and went to check the balcony and didn't see him. She checked the whole house out and he was no where to be found. She looked over the balcony but did not see him. She grabbed her jacket and went around the building, climbed down the embankment, sloshes through the moat and climbed up the wall to get to the downstairs neighbors patio. She saw Merlin run onto the patio and called to him. He came right to her! She bundled him up in her coat and brought him back home! She was muddy and banged her knee while climbing the wall but at least Merlin was okay. She checked every inch of that cat and he is just fine! Mom explained to him that cat do not really have 9 lives! He stuck to her like velcro for the rest of the night. Just before we went to bed, he was at the door howling to go out! Not too smart, is he? He sure is one lucky cat because it was only a few minutes between the time mom put the trash bag out and going downstairs to find him! If he had done that when mom wasn't here, no one else would have noticed him gone!
Have a fabulous evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a great day! I apologize for the boring
C/P but things have been crazy around here for the past few days. Getting dad ready to head out is always crazy! He always thinks of something he wants to get before he goes and then leaves stuff behind as well! He'll be having to get himself a new soup bowl and some coffee creamer because they are both sitting on the kitchen counter!hahahahahahaha
There has been the usual clean up after the dog and giving her a bath too! She is doing pretty well but manages to pee off the edges of the wee wee pads! Mom has 4 of them taped together but she still manages to miss part of it! She is still happy and eating up a storm so this is not such a big thing to deal with. It's just takes some time!
This morning we were all set to get my notes out when Ian asked to use the computer. Something happened to his and he needed to download something to fix it! It took an hour!
Right when mom sat down at the computer, I screamed! Mom got me out of the cage and checked me out! I was chewing up wood and she was afraid I had hurt my beak. I let her check out the beak and look at my tongue but there was no way I was going to let her touch it!! Who knows where those hands have been!!
Anyway, nothing seems to be damaged but I insisted on sitting on mom's lap for a long time! I had a fright and I needed to be fussed over! I'm back in the play cage now, having an apple and a goldfish cracker! Perhaps tomorrow will be a bit quieter and I can get a better note out! I just don't want any bird to think I have forgotten them! Never gonna happen!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you had a wonderful day and I hope your Christmas was fabulous!
Mom got home late from work this morning so my schedule was all off! At first I was pretty upset but it turned out okay since mom doesn't have to work tonight and spent lots of time with me.
There were lots of people at the store very early today. All the Christmas stuff was 75% off so they were grabbing stuff right and left! Mom managed to grab the cards for next year and two really nice shopping bags. They have Christmas pictures on them but who cares! One of them will be our new book bag since they are water proof. The old one is starting to rip on the bottom!
There was no traffic to report on the radio news show this morning so they were reporting when each mall was going to open!!! You would think everyone would be tired of shopping at this point but it certainly didn't look that way! Ian was suppose to work 4 hours today but he ended up staying for 8 since it was so busy. All those little kids who got gift cards could not wait to get to Toys R Us and find a new treasure! It's always exciting when they have their own money to spend!
Enjoy your evening and I hope it's just perfect!

  HI ZIPPY
Parrot’s Night Before Christmas
by Cheryl Tamburri
T’was the night before Christmas, so much to do!
Not a creature was stirring not even the Too
The stockings were hung, the parrots were bathed,
To wrap the bird toys, my efforts enslaved.
The cages were covered, the birds all in bed,
While visions of almonds danced in their heads.
And mom in her bird shirt, dressed looking poor,
on hands and knees cleaning poop off the floor.
When out on the lawn there arose such a chatter!
we jumped up to see just what was the matter
we peered out the window, what now to endure!
A Macaw in a sleigh, pulled by tiny Conures!
A Scarlet, he was, in a jaunty red hat,
I thought to myself, Good Lord, look at that!
He flew off the sleigh, and into my room,
bringing foot toys and blocks and a raffia broom.
we gasped in pure wonder; and we love Santa too
‘Oh yes!’, said the Scarlet, ‘i love you!’
“They love and they play and to owners they chat,
How many folks have pets just like that?!”
The joy parrots bring you all through the year,
The ones without out homes that are equally dear,
They deserve affection and enrichment all year,
But tonight especially, in hearts hold them all near.
The wise old bird gave a nod and a wink;
After dropping off toys he was gone in a blink!
And we thought to ourselves, we are blessed, yes indeed;
and to people who take take rescue birds, and to fill all their needs
He flew to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And off they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim as they flew out of sight
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

love Cori and Boo Boo

  Hi ya Zippy~
I hope your day was just perfect! We had some very dark clouds to the west but sunshine to the east! It looked very pretty. We didn't do a whole lot today. Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night and we have lots to get done around the house. Dad will be home Wednesday and he gets to stay home until Christmas is over!!
Mom went to the mall today to the Hallmark store to get Ian an ornament. She got him the Spiderman one this year. Mom has been buying him a Christmas ornament every year since he was born. This will be ornament #32! He has a strange collection of book characters, Godzilla, spaceships and action figures! The very first one was the Poky Little Puppy! That was his favorite book at the time!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a great day! We've had no rain and the wind has died down too. It is a bit cooler but it's more like it should be this time of the year!
There was a blackbird running around the furniture pad at mom's store this morning. Someone left the garden doors open and he came on in!! Mom tried to get him to come to her but he just hid around the back of an ottoman. She called her manager and told him that the bird was there and he told her that he had come in the day before. Her manager chased him around for half an hour but couldn't catch him. Mom thought about the fishing nets in the sporting goods department but the mesh is too big and she doesn't want him hurt. Mom suggested they make a trail of seed to the garden door. If he has been in the store for a day he must be hungry. There is a fountain in the indoor garden so he had access to water at least. Mom will find out tonight if they managed to get him out.

There are only 11 more ads until Christmas!hahaha Of course they are going to do an ad the day after also so mom will have to be there at midnight. They have tons of wrapping paper so everyone will probably be in for that. It will get slower after a few weeks. They have a storage event and early tax time and then it will be Valentine's Day! They already have throws, blankets, pillows and decor for Valentine's Day! At least it's all in the stockroom and not out on the floor!
I hope you enjoy your day!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you had a wonderful day! It was pretty nice here. I am on my second toy in a week and had a great time making a lovely pile of wood at the bottom of my play cage! Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night so she took a nap and then had to go to the bank. She and Ian are giving Jennifer a new Kindle for Christmas and she wanted to use dad's account because he gets free shipping on Amazon. I think Jennifer is going to be very surprised!
I got squawked again yesterday morning and couldn't get back on until last night! It keeps happening on Sundays!! I have no idea how long it stays that way since mom had to work last night so she had to give up and go to sleep! I'm so sorry I didn't get by! I thought they took weekends off!hahahahaha I think they should take the weekends off!!
We are watching a movie while I get my notes done then it will be off to bed! I don't know why mom gets so happy about going to sleep! I'd rather stay up all night and play!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Lots of cleaning and some cooking going on here. Kind of boring really but I have a new toy in the play cage to keep me occupied.
Mom put the Trans Siberian Orchestra CD on for us to listen to. She just love the Christmas Canon. She love the Canon and this version of it is very beautiful! I'm enjoying it. The new computer does not have the same music program as the old one so mom has not figured out how to get more music on her MP3 player! Ian gave mom his old IPod since he got a smart phone and it does everything the Ipod does. Now mom has to figure out how to use it! She can turn it on and off! So far that's about it!Hahahahahaha It's rather embarrassing to have a mom who is so clueless when it comes to technology!
You enjoy your day and I do hope it's perfect!
