  hi buddy
Happy humpday ! Each day here is getting a little warmer . . . soon it'll be HOT ! Luckily, still the only time mom HAS to put on the a/c is when she's cooking . . . infrequently as possible (har har har) ! Next week is the local church's Italian Festival - daddy calls it mom's kitchen vacation - each night they drive down, pick up something to eat and take it home for dinner . . .

We're starting to get the hang of - when you click on the "BIRDS" at the top, it seems as if the first couple pages of newbies is us ! I'm very happy we've found something to keep us together. Plus, mom discovered that their techie support person (staff ?) is very helpful - yup, she made a mistake and didn't know how to fix it ! So tell aunt Deb she needs to get on the ball !

Love you bunches - Cookie

  Apache !
I couldn't let today go by without stopping by . . . it's been a great ride and we have some wonderful memories tucked away in our hearts to pull out when we need the warmth of friendship. I will always remember the friends I made here on BC. You are family :)

a final vote and farewell . . . love you NOW AND FOREVER - Cookie and mom (who hopes to get together with aunt Deb again sometime this summer !)

Now and forever you are a part of me
And the memory cuts like a knife
Didn't we find the ecstacy? Didn't we share the daylight?
When you walked into my life

Now and forever, I'll remember
All the promises still unbroken
And think about all the words between us
That never needed to be spoken

We had a moment, just one moment
That will last beyond a dream, beyond a lifetime
We are the lucky ones
Some people never get to do all we got to do
Now and forever, I will always think of you

Didn't we come together? Didn't we live together?
Didn't we cry together? Didn't we play together?
Didn't we love together? And together we lit up the world

I miss the tears, I miss the laughter
I miss the day we met and all that followed after
Sometimes I wish I could always be with you
The way we used to do

Oh now and forever, I will always think of you
Now and forever, I will always be with you

CAROLE KING says it better than I ever could ! Let's enjoy our last few days here before moving on to emails, FB, or some other format. Picabo and I have already tried and it is very different but there may be a way to make it work for us - at least for those reluctant to use FB . . . sure beats the alternative !

We had some rain here last night and this morning the air isn't as thick :) If it holds, mom and dad are heading to West Point for an outdoor Army Band concert - with a picnic supper . . . that of course means lock down for me :(

love you NOW AND FOREVER ! a very heartbroken Cookie

  Hello Apache
BB puls out a chair & sits down with her head in her wings.

I just found out that our much loved Bird Channle will be shutting down about 7-12-16. This came from Crystal Apilado in a e mail.

A place called is suposed to be getting all the stuff here. Nothing said about what they will do with it.

This is so sad as we have all formed friendships even though many of us have never met face to face.
Face Book is just nowhere close to what BC grew into.

It looks like Cookie will be the last bird in the Kissing Booth. He might have 2 or 3 days.

A very sad Mrs BB

  silly aunt Deb !
Can't wait to see the hardware :) Everything else looks so pretty - when do you get to go down and christen it ?

Happy Friday ! Boy did I miss all my friends while mom and dad were gone ! But I had fun with my Laura - she called mom early yesterday to tell her that I was an imp ! Can you imagine that ? She had to leave for school and I would NOT go in my cage, so she put a blueberry in there - I scrambled over and sat on the cage door, and looked at her as if to say "HA ! Now I've got a blueberry and you still can't get me in !" Eventually, though, I HAD to have a taste and "whoosh" went the door and out went my Laura :(

Turns out the summer camp needs a new water heater . . . the handy man had been over to power wash the dock and saw the leak - so that's all taken care of. While there dad also got the ladder in the water and replaced a couple loose boards . . . now everything is ready for me to go ! Don't know when yet - a couple more weeks at least.

The last few days (up there and here) have been oppressive ! It's the kind of hot that's like breathing hot soup - YUCK ! I can't believe in this weather that aunt Deb is not living in the pool !

love to you, the flock and aunt Deb ! Cookie

  Sounds like a busy weekend at your house
Well, the big thunderboomers didn't show - just an itty rumble - even the rain wasn't what was expected yesterday - started at about 3:00 and over by supper time :) Which is good since this morning mom and dad are heading to the flea market and it's in a field -

I just hope they don't find any (fleas, that is !) Afterward, they'll head to the g'parronts for a cookout. While they're gone I'll rest up for the prom tonight ! Ready to dance the night away :)

Why don't you head up here and then we can play while the folks are gone today - maybe even take mom's new car for a joy ride since they're taking daddy's ?

  sounds like aunt Deb had a great time !
Can you believe mom's vacation is already a week old ? Yesterday both mom and dad went to the g'parronts to take some old junk to the dump and today they're going again just for a visit ! Sheesh ! Guess I'll pull out mom's old disco singles from her college days and practice my dance moves for tonight's prom by myself !

At least it's not steamy like in some places of the country - we've been in the mid-80's with lots of sunshine. Only problem is things are starting to look a little brown since the rain never showed up . . . you guys got our rain the other day . . .

Don't worry the kitchen will be done before you know it ! Then we want to see pictures ! Did you see mom's new car in my gallery ? She's in love ! Have a great time today and give aunt Deb my love ! Cookie

Mom's crown is in - no diamonds (although at the price there should be !) - but no pain either, which is good after the last couple months ! AND her car is on the truck and should arrive at the dealership either today or Monday :) So yesterday was an all around good day !

Of course today being Saturday, means the folks will go up to check on the g'parronts - daddy will mow while mom does some shopping. I had a yummy blueberry last night - so good in fact, I ate every bite - didn't even save any to fling !

The kitchen will probably be gorgeous when finished ! Mom says you should send her a picture of everything !

One foot and one toe left till mom is done with school ! But who's counting ? har har har ! Tell aunt Deb to have a terrific vacation - the weather looks like it'll be perfect !

Maybe you and me should have a pool party while she's gone ? love Cookie

  morning Apache !
Hope aunt Deb's party was indoors yesterday with all the rain ! Our on again, off again rain yesterday wasn't as bad as the weather guessers said. It only dumped heavy rain for about a half hour - and mom and dad were home with me by then. Of course it did mean nobirdie got out :( At least today is supposed to be better - looks like the kids will be out for recess. In fact other than a few more sprinkles tomorrow night into Wed. morning, the week looks pretty good.

G'pa's tv is all set up and hooked up to a blu-ray player so he can watch anything now. Mom and dad even got the big old heavy analog tv in the car and to the dump in between rain drops. They said g'pa was happy with his Father's Day present . . . now I'll just have to beak him a card :)

Including today ? 10 days ! But who's counting ? har har har :) Have a great day ! love Cookie

That sounds like fun - picking out new fixtures for the kitchen. Mom wanted to update the faucets in the bathroom this year, but between her tooth and the new car, it was put on the back burner . . .

It's back to school today for mom - yesterday we hung around the house and did some laundry - and you'll be pleased to hear, I didn't pull a single thread from the pocket of any of daddy's tee-shirts ! (Some of them barely have pockets anymore - it's so much fun, one thread at a time . . . snap, pick, pop) Then I helped mom with a bit of school work before heading out onto the deck :) Last night we watched Abbott and Costello - boy are those guys silly !

Daddy is home today to go mow the g'parronts' lawn. After the rain Saturday night, g'ma says it needs it. Tomorrow he has to take g'pa to another dr. appointment - this time just his internist. So, it's still pretty busy here. G'ma is still getting used to her new car, and won't drive on the highway so there are still things mom and daddy need to help out with . . .

How was your Memorial Day weekend ? The rain finally stopped around noon here - what about there ?

You and aunt Deb have a great day :) I'm counting down from 14 . . . love Cookie

Sounds like a busy weekend at your perch ! Mom just remembered she never called aunt Deb ! Sheeesh ! Good thing she has a neck to keep her head on !

Well, the parronts got home a lot later than expected after taking g'pa to his appointment yesterday. Everything is healing well, he's just angry that the dr. told him he can't drive for 6 months ! That's a long time ! But at least they came home with my yummies :) Now this morning off they go again - flea market time :( Mom loves to poke around - daddy loves the junk food !

I wonder if the ground will be wet though - we had dumping rain yesterday afternoon - so, no, of course mom did NOT get the back deck done yet ! She is still promising either today when they get back or tomorrow . . . sigh - what's a bird to do ?

Hope you're not getting the rain . . . pool time ! love Cookie

Are you telling me aunt Deb is off and doing things on your hatchday ? Leave the door unlocked - I'll head down and we'll rock the house ! ! !

It's a gloomy dark and cloudy Sunday ! We're stuck in this weather pattern till Wednesday - UGH - on and off again showers in between lots of clouds . . . don't know if the back deck will get done or not. You probably are too . . .

It was pretty late when everyone got home yesterday. G'pa was supposed to be released around 11:00 and it turned out to be more like 3:00. But he's home now and happy about that. You should have seen how excited their little pug, Suki, got when he came through the door ! Like he'd been gone months instead of over night . . .

Today is the dreaded cage cleaning day - that'll give me something to do tomorrow when mom is back to school - make it comfortable again ! Mom will try to call aunt Deb tonight - Have a great day ;) love Cookie

Silly daddy called aunt Deb yesterday ! Did she tell you ? Mom left her phone home by accident and since daddy has the same one, and he wasn't paying attention (he never does !), he thought it was his ! What a silly daddy !

Happy Friday ! Mom and dad went to walk down by the river last night like they usually do . . . mom came home all excited to tell me about the flock of vultures hanging out near the pilings - she's seen them flying above, but never congregated (there were 5-6) and so close by !

Daddy is getting ready to leave now (4:20) cause g'pa has to be at the hospital at 6:00, he has his overnight bag packed - mom will head up after school for a while to be with g'ma and daddy, but she promised to come home early enough for my supper.

On and off rain from tomorrow till Wednesday here - YUCK ! That means I have to make the most of today ! At least it's supposed to be warm enough for me to holler out my window ! Is the pool opened yet ? Mom says she'll try to call sometime tonight or tomorrow to chat with aunt Deb :) love Cookie

What an incredible night last night was ! Everybird was a winner just because we had so much fun :) Thanks to miss Chyna, Kiddo, Sam and the Scruffy Birds, Lizzie and all the photographers it took ! A true labor of love :) Tell aunt Deb to bring you over to milonga page 165848 to see all the fun !

Mom's tooth feels better - now if the "hinge" of her jaw weren't still sore . . . it hurts to open her mouth too wide - like when she eats ! She still has to cut her food into teeny tiny "Cookie sized" bites - takes a month to eat a meal that way !

Last night mom and dad went on a short walk - only about a half hour, because all of a sudden the skies got dark and then plop, plop, plop came the rain. On the way home those skies dumped ! Hopefully today will be better - it's supposed to be a lot cooler this week - high 50's low 60's - more like April than May . . .

Have a wonderful day - I'll be basking in the memories of last night :) love Cookie

  hey there Apache !
Happy Tuesday :) It feels so good here now that the sun has returned - it reached mid-60's yesterday and by tomorrow and Thursday it's supposed to be near 70 ! Hellooooo spring :)

Today is mom's (hopefully) last visit to the surgeon after school. She'll get the AOK from him as to when she can head back to her dentist to start working on that crown . . . she just wishes it weren't such a long drawn out process - the area is still sensitive to heat, cold (no ice cream ! ! !) and acidy foods . . . The good news of the day though, is daddy is staying home to go mow the g'parronts' lawn. He promised to go this morning and come home ASAP to play with me ! In the meantime I will work on building my heap and keeping an eye on the outdoor goings on . . .

You have a terrific Tuesday and remember : I love you and aunt Deb too ! Cookie

The sun finally returned yesterday ! ! And of course mom and dad were off celebrating Mother's Day with g'ma so I had to enjoy it from my cage . . . but at least it was there. While they were gone I made a lovely length of lace calculator paper for mom to enjoy when she got back - with my sugar snap peas !

Today after school, mom is going to pick up new shades for the bedroom windows - one of them tore when she was putting up the spring/summer curtains and she just never got around to it. And of course, they both have to be replaced so they match perfectly !

Mom ordered a Ford Edge - brand spanking new - it'll be in in about 4-6 weeks. The dealer didn't have the color she wanted (can you say SPOILED ?) It was his lucky day - her niece bought an Escape the same day - she's mom's best shopping buddy :) har har har !

A triple crown would be exciting, wouldn't it ? Go Nyquist ! Me and Alysheba have been working out and are ready for Saturday's race ! ! Wait till you see - we are as one - horsie and rider - flying around the track ! ! ! Weeeeeeeeeee . . .

Have a great Monday ! Love you and aunt Deb - Cookie

Happy humpday ! ! It's another dark and rainy one here - so depressing . . . I napped again yesterday and squawked for an early night-night - it was soooo dark ! It's supposed to stay this way through the weekend too - YIKES ! Not a whole lot of rain but drizzly and dismal . . . I bet it's the same there !

Daddy is finally taking mom out looking for a car on Friday after school. I think helping g'ma get hers (Hyundai Accent) made him see that he would like to drive mom's . . . and of course mom is ready for something new ! (She's hoping to find a Ford Edge - but she's not sure if it's too big for her . . . That's the way it works in our house - mom gets new, dad gets mom's, and one of the nieces gets dads. Our family gets every last mile out of every vehicle !

That's all the news from here - except for very soon starting the end of school countdown . . . have a good day and good luck to Shirl and the NEW KITCHEN project ! love Cookie

Tuesday is no longer mom's humpday ! Now it's a Wednesday just like the rest of the world :) She and her co-coach cleaned up the stage after school yesterday and put all the props and sets away. When she got home we played peek a bird ! It is a favorite game of mine - we play it like hide and seek - I hide under a heap of paper or in a box and mom calls for me . . . and calls and calls . . . till I holler PEEK-A-BIRD !

We are in the middle of a dreary rainy week - on and off all week long. The sun came out just long enough last night for the parronts to go take a walk by the river while I enjoyed my nutriberri. After some skritching time, it was night-night. Now I've got today to look forward to :)

Shopping for a new kitchen is so fun ! I know aunt Shirl and mom are enjoying it :) What kind of countertops does Shirl have in mind ? Mom's sister is in the middle of having hers done too . . .

Have a great day ;) love Cookie

Rain here in NY today . . . but that's OK, cause there's not a lot going on. Mom is recovering from last night. The show went really well - only one little actor missed a line, and it wasn't an important one. The cast party was LOUD. She was even able to eat a slice of pizza ! ! Thank goodness in junior high there's only one performance unlike high schools which do two full weekends. Don't think she could do that ! Me either - I do love my daddy, but he's not a very good tucker inner and mom had to fix my blankee when she got home about half past midnight.

Now things can get back (sort of) to normal here ! I hope ! But, like aunt Karen said - it'll be time to wrap up the school year soon and that means extra work . . . but at least it means summer is almost here !

She will go out later to get me my fresh veggies - yesterday she got hers and daddy's foods. I'll try to be a good boy and let her rest . . .you have a good day ! love Cookie

Mom had her stitches out last night - now she's sore and her mouth is still tender . . . even the coffee hurts ! YIKES ! She goes back for a check up in 2 weeks and then first week of June she goes for the temporary crown. Daddy woke up with a cold this morning - sheesh, I can see I've got my work cut out for me today ! Get me my nurse's cap ! ! !

Plus, thunderboomers rolled in over night and the rain is coming on and off all day. That means indoor recess . . . even the junior high will be antsy at rehearsal today -

New curtain and window treatments ? Mom only wishes . . . some day . . .

Yep ! Mom says it's worth the extra money to go to the salon for feather coloring .. . and how exciting - an almost new kitchen ! ! !

Mom finally caught up on her sleep after Thursday's trip. We cuddled up last night and talked about her leaving for a whole long day . . . and she said she's going off to visit the g'parronts today ! sheeesh ! At least when she comes home I'll have my veggies :) Last night we shared some watermelon - boy was it good ! I love food ! ! !

A little cooler here this weekend - yesterday we were near 80 ! Today and through the week mid-60's. As long as the sun shines, I'm good with that !

Happy humpday dear friends ! We're bright eyed and busy tailed this morning after another perfectly beautiful day yesterday and a good night's sleep for mom :) Yup, she slept right through without having to get up to take anything for the pain. Of course, it'll start again as soon as she heads back to her own dentist for the crown.

Good thing too, since tomorrow is her class trip to Philadelphia ! After that very long day, she'll sleep well too - not so sure about tonight though. She gets as excited as the kids !

Dont' forget - there are new songs posted over at NAME THAT TUNE on page 231616 :) Have a great day with mom :) love Cookie

Well, mom is SORE ! She got very little sleep last night cause of the pain in her mouth - actually she was about to doze off at about 9:30 last night and the periodontist called to see how she was feeling - it'll be a long week of soft foods for her - but that's good for me cause that means pasta ! The worst part is she's not supposed to even brush on that side of her mouth till after the stitches come out on Monday . . . then comes the crown - boy am I glad I have no teeth !

I must say I'm enjoying my spot - it was near 80 yesterday so daddy opened up the windows and the back door. I even had a bath with him while mom was gone. I bet she was surprised to see my puddles when she got home :)

Did you see ? Coconut is in the BOTD box ! Julio finally went home ! Cute as he was with that bell on his head, I was getting tired of looking at him all the time !

Good luck today with the grooming . . . sigh. love Cookie

It's here ! Moving next to the window day ! Only, mom told me last night before night-night that she and dad had a few errands to run first though . . . and that I have to be patient. I'm not really a patient fid, I want to sit in my cage and look out at that deck ! ! In fact, before heading to the g'parronts yesterday, she cleaned the deck and got it almost ready for us to go out and enjoy - in a couple more weeks, she'll get her container gardens ready . . . So busy day here - laundry day too - I'll help with daddy's t-shirts :)

It's finally spring ! ! Good thing too - mom's class trip is on Thursday and she didn't want to walk around Philadelphia with 24 kids in the cold ! Her trip is a little earlier this year - she usually goes in May . . . she says she'll wave to you and aunt Deb !

Give mom and the flock hugs for me ! Cookie

Happy humpday - although mom's was yesterday - mine too, since it's the day I wait the longest for her to come home. Only the rest of this month of drama club though, production is the last weekend. At least on Thursdays when she takes Landon to his gym class, daddy is home and I sure do love my daddy ! He brings me out and plays or lets me sit with him . . . he's also more generous with treats than mom !

I guess mom is most upset by her tooth cause she's had to have NOTHING done except cleanings in close to 40 years ! ! ! In her early 20's she had 1 wisdom tooth out ! That's it ! Aunt Jane is right - getting old really stinks ! ! !

It looks like spring is sprung - old man winter seems to have retreated to his cave till next year. We're into the high 50's and 60's by the weekend and into next week - Mom and dad tried to go for their walk last night since the sun finally came out - but it was sooooo windy, they only went about half way. Then they came home to me ! I had a quick bit of a bath, my goodnightbird nutriberri and off to perch I went ;)

I'm glad aunt Deb is feeling better . . . that's a cute story about g'pa ! Mom had an uncle who (back in the 90's) gave her a $10 bill for her birthday and told her to give him back the change after buying herself something for her birthday !

Have a great day - love Cookie

  oh dear, poor aunt Deb
I hope you're making sure she rests ! She sure has been busy the last couple weeks !

It's Monday already ! How in the world does this happen so quickly ? We had such a nice day yesterday - mom and dad stayed home and did work around the house - they keep blaming me for all the messes, but I think daddy is just as guilty ! ! Saturday, they went to the g'parronts and came home with some lovely sugar snap peas :)

Today will be a late day for mom - the other day she chipped her tooth - her dentist appointment is after school today . . . I sure am glad I don't have teeth. Luckily, it's not one that shows, so she's just been eating soft on the other side the last few days . . . Daddy will finish the mac and cheese from Friday, since she probably will not feel like eating much -

Our weather is finally (hopefully) turning more like spring. It's been like winter the last couple weeks ! And mom's Philadelphia trip with her class is next week ! Be good and take care of aunt Deb ! love Cookie

  hope everything is well there !
I saw a cowslip through the fence,
A horsefly in the store,
I saw a boardwalk up the street,
A stone step by the door.

I saw a mill race up the road,
A daybreak through the gloom,
I saw a nightfall on my lawn,
A clock run in my room.

I saw a peanut stand up high,
A sardine box in town,
A bedspring at the garden gate,
An inkstand on the ground.

You don't believe all this do you ?
For not a single thing is true.

It's just a silly way to say,
"Happy April Fool's Day !"

  happy Easter buddy !
Five little Easter eggs, lovely colors wore
Dixie ate the blue one, then there were four

Four little Easter eggs, two and two you see
Apache ate the green one, then there were three

Three little Easter eggs, before I knew
Kaji ate the yellow one, then there were two

Two little Easter eggs, oh what fun !
Falco ate the purple one, then there was one !

One little Easter egg, see me run ?
Cookie ate the last one - now there are none ! !

Love Cookie

  morning buddy !
It's babka baking day in our house ! That means mom will be home all day long since it takes all day long to make ! !

Yesterday didn't turn out so badly - mom and my Laura were home by 1:30ish from their shopping trip - she got a few things for spring (and a few things for Laura too) They had a good time together - the weather was nice so walking around (Woodbury Commons is an outdoor center) was nice. Even with all that walking, she still dragged daddy out to walk last night since today is rainy all day . . .

Wings are crossed and prayers being sent for aunt Deb - sure hope life and pain settle down for her soon !

Mom talked to uncle Chuck for a few minutes last night - just long enough to send him lots of love and healing wishes. Thanks to aunt Eileen for the update -

Have a peaceful Friday . . . love you ! Cookie

  hey buddy !
God give you, for every storm, a rainbow,
for every tear, a smile
for every care, a promise.

And a blessing in each trial

For every problem life sends, A faithful friend to share
for every sigh, a sweet song.

And an answer for each prayer.

Happy St. Patrick's Day dear friend !
Love Cookie

  hey buddy !
Yesterday's rain was cold - mom could not warm up when she got home ! Today at least the rain is done - but the cooler temps are sticking around a few more days . . . hopefully by mom's vacation in another week it'll warm up again !

Today is her late day for her drama club meeting - but even that will soon end - the production is the last weekend of April and then she'll be mine even on Tuesday afternoons ! At least now it's still daylight when she wanders in . . . me and daddy are in charge of eats on Tuesday which is one good thing about it - he's much more generous with nibbles ! Mom gets upset with him cause then I beg during dinner other nights too, even though I'm at the table and have my own dish !

We're so happy to hear that aunt Deb is feeling better ! It worries us when she's in so much pain and makes us wish we had a magic wand . . . poof ! And it'd be gone :)

Have a great Tuesday ! love Cookie

  I missed you sooooooo much !
In fact, me and mom were going to call you and aunt Deb to make sure everything was OK . . .

TGIF ! It's been almost like summer this week here - in fact now daddy's spring allergies are acting up. Last night he kept mom awake snuffling, sneezing and coughing until she finally came and stayed in my room with me ! I'm a much quieter sleeper !

Busy weekend coming up - company coming tomorrow so this afternoon I'll help mom clean up the house when she comes home. That way tomorrow morning she can go to the market, and then Sunday the folks will go check in on the g'parronts and get me my sugar snap peas . .

How about I fly down for the weekend and help take care of aunt Deb ? That will help all her pains . . .
