I was on the floor of Pottsee's Exotics, a very nice bird store in Bellflower, California. I was in a small cage when I saw two people walk in. The lady sat down and looked down and noticed me and asked the shop owner what kind of bird I was and he told her that I am a Cinnamon Green-Cheeked Conure and I'm not very common.
Then a man came over and the owner's wife put me on his hand. I just sat there, looking around, not too sure what to do. The man handed me to the lady and she held me for a while and then put me on a stand.
Well, I saw my chance and launched myself off the stand and climbed up the book racks. The owner's wife had to get me down. But she gave me back to the man and he talked to me real quietly for a while.
Well, that was all she wrote. I went home with my new mom and dad and now I'm part of the La Habra flock.

Hi! My name is GINGER

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from La Habra, CA.

Ginger Bird, Gin-Gin, Buzz-Saw. Buzzy, Feathered Beaver.

5 years old   F

Green-Cheeked Conure

Tropical fruit treat sticks, Apples. Anything made of wood. Dad's nose.

On the top of her cage or on top of her neighbors cages.

Anything strange that is brought into my field of view.

They talk to me and let me sit in the living room with them and watch TV. That's kind of cool. I also have lots of wooden toys.

Every time her water is changed, she takes a bath in it. Anything made of wood has a very short life span.
She also serves as the La Habra flock's "Early Warning" system. Anytime she sees or hears something that she feels is a threat, which is just about everything, she sounds the "Alarm".

Every water cup is a bath tub..

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a freezing cold morning! The highs for the day were 75,the lows of 62 and right now at 8:00pm its 66.Its so cold as Mom dictates this for us that her nose is running and she can't stop shivering.She has Dixie on one side of her and Candida on the other keeping her warm under Dixie's blanket which is wrapped around her neck!Mom got us all up and fed us our bean mix,cleaned our cages and collected the trash and put it all in the car along with the recyclables.Then she harnessed Dixie up and got him in the car seat and off they went to the Post Office to have the mail held,then to Nana's.Mom called skin sis when she got there and and skin sis came and met Mom and Nana at Nana's house.Mom transferred all the trash to Nana's car along with Nana's recyclables and off they went to the dump after getting Dixie settled in the cage there with some food and water.From there they went to Walgreen's and then to Falmouth to DQ where Mom got everyone a Blizzard for skin sis's birthday,then they went back to Nana's so skin sis could get into her car and go to PT,they were waiting on skin sis to get out of PT so they could make arrangements to go to the new Mexican restaurant in Falmouth with skin bro but he never got out of work til well after 5:00pm.Mom couldn't hang around that late and Nana was not feeling well with choking and coughing,Mom still had to go back home and finish packing for our trip to visit Aunt's Tanya, Mary,Janet,Arlene,Jinky and Carol and anyone else that could meet up with us from the surrounding areas!Mom waited until near 4:00pm to hear back from skins sis and bro but the later it got the more tired Nana got and Mom didn't want to fight the traffic getting home.Mom packed Dixie up and left for home where she immediately began the packing process with dad.Mom got hers and dads duffel bag filled to the brim,then went and got our bags packed and our cages outfitted with toys to keep us busy on the long ride and Dixie's special perch so he wouldn't fall.Our cages are all papered and water bottles attached and ready to be filled with water in the morning.Kallie and Candida have their bowls in the cages but Mom has to get Dixie a bowl that he can get to easily as he can't perch on the ones that come with the cages with his gouty toes that don't work for him.Mom got lots of presents to bring for every birdie and furballs when they get there and parronts too.Mom has to keep this short as she still has to get the last minute things packed,our harnesses,food and treats for the car ride.Dad has both his and Mom's music in the car,(we love the oldies)where dad likes the 70's-80's.We should be back by next week,Mom is going to see how my dad does on the long drive.All us fids are so eggcited about going with Mom and dad!YIKES!!You are boiling while we are freezing in the mornings and evenings!Dad and Mom came home tonight and said the house felt like we had the a/c on all day!Its so good to hear Ron is doing so well!That's such gr

This morning was a much cooler morning with our highs for the day of 78,the lows of 63 and right now its 77. We have bright sunshine here and it almost feels and smells like a cool fall day.Mom got us all up and as we slept with her last night she didn't have to do much in the way of cleaning our cages.Then she made out some bills to put in the mail and found her suitcases and started to get some things in that.Then my dad came home from working overnight and Mom got him something for breakfast after which he filled up the birdbath with fresh water and fed the wild birds and did a few other things before he went to bed.Mom clipped all of our nails and got some of our things ready to be packed for the trip.She cleaned the bathrooms and is thinking about what to get ready for dinner tonight.Other than that its a boring day here with nothing interesting going on.She video chatted with Skin bro and we are hoping to get out on the deck for some sunshine soon.We did get to join our parronts for dinner on the deck late this afternoon and it was so nice sitting in the sunshine without the high humidity,the dew point is down to 62 now!

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a bright sunny morning,warm with the highs of 83,the lows of 64 and right now at 7:30pm its 73.The day was pleasant for a change,the damp wet floors from the humidity have all nearly dried up,the dew points are in the 60's tonight and there was a nice breeze today and tonight it was nearly cold.Mom got us all up early and cleaned our cages,fed us our bean mix and harnessed Dixie up and got him in our car seat.Mom and Dixie went to Nana's to meet skin sis there and when she came after Mom put Dixie in his cage in Nana's sunroom and fed him,they all got into skin sis's car and took off to Hyannis.They went to Shaw's grocery store so Mom could pay the EverSource bill,this was a big one from the winter from the budget system.No credits this year for Mom.Then they went to Dollar Tree where both Mom and Nana got a few things.Then from there they went to Yarmouth to go to DePalma's and Italian restaurant to have a pizza.When they got into the parking lot there were no cars there and it was after 1:30pm and right around lunch time,so Mom ran to the door and found it locked with no message about being closed,the only thing was they were opened for dinner at 4:00pm.They used to serve lunch there.From there they went back to Hyannis to RiteAid,then Ocean State Job Lots,then back to Mashpee to Asia,a Chinese restaurant that everyone likes.From there,they went to Marshall's where Mom went looking for flip flops for our dad,but they were completely sold out,the young man there told Mom she could get some ladies flip flops for dad but Mom said that just wouldn't work to have dad wear pink flip flops with sparkles etc!Then they went to Stop&Shop and all three of them got something that was on sale.Then from there they went back to Nana's and had something for dessert,Nana's apple crisp and then Mom got Dixie harnessed and ready to go home.She got everything unpacked she bought,got dad a leftover double hamburger from Sunday's grilling and some creamed corn and some cake that Nana sent home for him.Mom cleaned our cages and she took us all out on the deck to join dad for dinner,Mom was too full to eat anything more.What a pleasant night here,its almost cold and nice to walk on floors that aren't damp.Mom did the dishes and repacked dad's cooler lunch box to get him back off to work tonight for a second overnight shift.More long line painting to be done before school starts.We had a bad thunder and lightening storm here last night and the thunder shook the house!Mom kept us with her until it all ended.

  Hi Ginger
Has your sweet Daddy tried Trader Joe's for those Mini taco's?Trader Joe's is usually good when you are looking for something specific in the frozen section.Mom has found the same thing that when she goes grocery shopping she can no longer find the things she used to get as things have changed so drastically where the things you used to be able to get and enjoy have been replaced by other things that aren't quite as good.We also have a big warehouse here that has all the restaurant sized cans of foods and a frozen food freezer with things that the restaurants buy from to serve in their restaurants.Meats,veggies,potatoes,pastries,and those wraps,crab rangoons,ethnic foods that are frozen etc.If you have one of those there you might be able to find the mini tacos there.
Its good that you haven't seen anymore critters so far,and I sure do hope you don't ever see them too!They are so annoying and its so upsetting to know they're running amuck in your house like that,boy,does Mom ever know what that's like!
Our highs for the day are 81,the lows will be 69 and its 81 and quite humid,the humidity levels are 71%,Mom can't even wash the floors as they are damp to the touch and won't dry anyway and vacuuming is a hot ordeal today.With the humidity and the heat its so hard to get things done today,and Mom still has to get our things packed and her and dad's duffel bags down and packed for our adventure.So much to do and so little time in which to do it in!

Oh how awful that there is another critter that your poor daddy is trying to catch and a big one at that,YUCK!Does my Mom know what that's like to have to move some big things without making stuff fall off and gain access to where the critter is hiding behind!Mom is so praying that the Mouse Magic will flush him outta there for your poor dad!Having something like mice or other critters in your house is like a big nightmare!
This morning was a dark dreary morning to start with the temperatures were highs of 78 and the lows of 68,right now at 7:30pm its 73. Mom got us up fed us and cleaned our cages and swept our room and just as she was going to start vacuuming before it got too hot do to so,skin sis called and wanted her and Nana to go to lunch with her and to run some errands in Wareham.She had a coupon for LongHorn restaurant for a free dessert for her birthday and she wanted to go with Mom before Mom left on Sunday.So Nana called Mom after skin sis asked her and skin sis came and picked Mom up and then got Nana,it started to rain and then down pour as they went along and they crossed over the Bridge,there was quite a back up at the Bourne Bridge but they got over and the first stop was Gold World the jewelry store so Nana could get a battery in her watch,then they went to the pet shop there so Mom could look for travel size water bottles for our travel cages but she didn't find any there.From there they went to LongHorn and had lunch,Mom and Nana had strawberry chicken salad and grilled chicken and Nana had seafood chowder,Mom had chicken tortilla soup while skin sis got the parmesan encrusted chicken with a sweet potato and a salad.Then they had the Chocolate stampede cake and Mom was groaning when she got out of there.Then they went to JC Penney so skin sis could return some pants she got and from there they went to Petco where Mom found the travel size water bottles for our travel cages for our trip on Sunday.There was a Pineapple GCC there that looked like he was on steroids!Our baby fister Candida looked so small next to that one!Then they went to the Dollar Tree where Mom got some body wash and some ponytail holders and from there they went to drop Nana back home,then skin sis brought Mom home and when Mom got home she got dad some dinner,and cleaned our cages for the night,cleaned the dishes and put what she got away.Mom is so exhausted and hopes that she can get to stay home tomorrow so she can get something done in the house tomorrow and she needs to get the luggage out so she can start packing for our trip.Time is running out and Mom hasn't even gotten anything packed yet!

This morning started off bright and sunny but then the clouds came quickly over the sky,and it kept getting sunny and humid and then cloudy and dark.Our highs for the day are 78 the lows of 66.It's 72 and very wet and cloudy right now at 7:00pm.
Skin sis called Mom and wanted to come down with her laundry and to have a BBQ and Mom wasn't sure about the latter but she told her she could come down anyway.Mom in the meantime got us all up,fed and cleaned us and then swept the room,then she got dad his breakfast and made his sandwiches for work for the week,then Mom was getting the other two travel cages set up as dad wanted to see just how they would fit in his car.So as Mom was getting them out of the boxes they were packed in skin sis came in the door with Peepers and Celine and she and Mom worked on getting them out of the boxes and set up and they brought them out to the garage so dad could get them in his car and they all fit nicely in the back seat.Then Mom got all the meats out to BBQ and marinade,she took out some brats,hot dogs,pork chops,turkey cutlets,and hamburgers.Just as Mom brought all of us outside in our deck cages,it started to sprinkle out we were all getting wet.Candida was having so much fun fluffing up and shaking off the water from her feathers.Kallie was enjoying the rain and fluffing up and climbing all over his cage!Mom wound up grilling in the rain getting soaked while everyone sat on the deck under the umbrella.Skin bro was supposed to join them but he was at Nana's doing his laundry and Nana had given him breakfast and lunch.Skin sis did her laundry while Mom was running around and grilling and getting everything set on the table,condiments,rolls,and utensils.Mom served everyone and then cleaned up everything and brought it all inside.Then skin sis got the laundry and brought it upstairs and Mom helped her fold it and Mom put her laundry away.Skin sis stayed til 6:00pm and then Mom put our light on and gave us our snack and got into a nice shower.Its getting darker and darker and it looks like its going to rain again.Mom brought in all the deck cages and cleaned them both out as they were soaked.

Oh there's nothing like homemade anything!And that Gumbo sure sounds beakwatering good to me and Mom!What?You never even got a taste of it?That's so not nice of your sweet Parronts to do that to you!Every day that you don't see any critters is a good day what Mom says!You just never know what damage they can do behind your walls with the electrical wires and such.Oh what a scare that must've been for your sweet daddy to lose his Visa card!Mom would've been frantic.It was a good thing that the manager of the grocery store found it!How'd it get under the plastic bag stands?Its good there were some honest people there.You aren't fooling who wants to deal with the banks again!
This morning was a dark dull day with no sunshine at all! It poured here last night around 3:00am to 4:00am and Mom and dad went running for the windows,upstairs and down.the highs for the day will be 76 the lows 69 and right now its 72.Mom got us all up and fed us and cleaned our cages and then got dad his breakfast.Then Mom cleaned up the kitchen and will get some chores done before she has to go out for a few hours late this afternoon.She should be home sometime after 5:00pm.Skin sis called and wants to come over and Mom didn't really have much in the way of making dinner for more than her and dad right now,she doesn't want to take out any meat to cook in the oven if she doesn't have to heat up the kitchen.Mom told skin sis that she'd make a leftover macaroni dinner but skin sis opted out to bring subs home for them all,Mom,dad and herself.Hopefully everything will dry out by then so they can eat out on the deck and maybe we can come and join them out there also!Mom saw the hummingbird out there this morning!It was warm and sunny yesterday and they waited to see him while they were eating dinner like they usually do but he never showed up!It's going to be a boring day here but everyone is home and we're happy about that!We can't wait to get to the Milonga tonight and Mom told skin sis that she could sit and join in with us.We don't want to be late!

  a with everything going wrong.From no places to go and eat breakfast,no parking spaces,even at Walgreen's to the Keurig not wanting to work!After the iced tea and a piece of cake,Mom and Nana went out to chop up the tall hedges that were blocking the view of the street so Mom could see when she backed out.Mom took the hedge trimmer while Nana bagged the cuttings and was it ever so hot in the sun,Mom was soaked in sweat by the time she got done.Mom did the whole length of the front yard and after she rolled up the cord and put the hedge trimmer away,she harnessed up Dixie and got him back in his car seat to go home and once home she got dad dinner,got us all our snacks,and cleaned our cages out for the night.Then they went out to the deck to eat and we all got to come and join them and while we were out there it started to rain really lightly,you wouldn't even know it was raining unless you looked up and saw the rain coming down,it barely got the deck or the deck furniture wet.Mom couldn't get us out to catch the rain!

Mom and I sure don't blame your sweet daddy to want them GONE entirely and that's just what Mom wants too and so far since the last two we had in one night when both Mom and dad drowned them both in the sewers outside,but with those nasty critters you never know just where they're coming from.Mom is hoping to get that mint to grow so she can put it all over the house.Mice hate mint!Mom and I would surely love to see your sweet daddy's new video of the cunning mice that are driving him nuts!My Mom and dad sure can sympathize with him!
This morning was another warm morning with bright sunshine and the highs for the day are 82 the lows of 70 and right now at 7:00pm its 79.Mom got us all up early and cleaned our cages,fed us and swept our room,then she loaded all the trash and recyclables in the car and then got Dixie harnessed up and in the car seat.They made a stop at Aubuchon hardware to pick up the small bag of cement that Nana had wanted and the young man there was so happy to see Dixie,he even knew that Dixie was a conure and said he had always wanted one and after seeing Dixie up close he definitely will get one.But Mom told him to think hard about getting a fid because they live long lives and need all the care a child would need,he couldn't believe that Dixie was 22yrs old.Then they were off to Nana's where Mom loaded all the trash into Nana's car and recyclables and they took off for the dump,then Nana had wanted to go for breakfast so they headed off to Falmouth to Friendly's but because of getting stuck in all the slow moving traffic they were late for breakfast by a few minutes so they left to find another place that served breakfast,they went to DQ where in the same parking lot is a small place that serves breakfast but there were no spaces to put the car,the whole place was bombed,then Mom continued driving through Falmouth to Teaticket to Moon-a-Kiss Cafe and they had crowds waiting outside also but Mom found one space left to park and they went inside and didn't have to wait long,but they had to sit at the counter which was uncomfortable for both Nana and Mom as Mom couldn't reach the floor and had to half sit and half stand on the swivel chairs and after the food came it was so crowded that as they were on the end by the door,they kept getting bumped by the wait staff and the people who were leaving.Mom had a hard time trying to drink her coffee while getting bumped.Mom and Nana don't want to go there ever again,besides constantly getting bumped the place was so loud you couldn't hear the person next to you speaking!I think every tourist in the world was there!Kids,parents,uncles and aunts etc.From there Mom drove to the gas station where she pumped gas in Nana's car and got the store discount for $2.39 a gal,then Walgreens back to Mashpee and Nana got a few things she needed there and they went back to Nana's from there where Nana had made them an ice tea,and her Keurig wouldn't work.Its been a very frustrating day for Mom and Nan

Mom has mint growing in some planters in our tv room bay window,mice hate mint.Tell your daddy to get some mint and plant it in the yard in a garden or anywhere he can,it really takes off though so he might not like it unless he keeps it in a planter pot.Put those bags of Mouse Magic in the strategic areas of the house where you feel they are coming into the house,closets,attics,basements,bird rooms etc.Your sweet daddy is so right about how cunning they are and how they avoid getting caught.Its so frustrating and annoying!How awesome that both your sweet Parronts got to get out to see the concert in the park!Its good to see them out enjoying themselves!
This morning was a cloudy morning but by 9:00am the sun came out,the highs for the day will be 79 the lows will be 70 and right now its 81.Mom got us all up,fed and cleaned our cages and then decided to vacuum the house before it got too hot,then she made some red velvet cookie bars and has them in the oven and has some brownies ready to go in next.Mom is already sweating from the heat of the vacuum and the oven.Mom got the recyclables out to the garage and into the car and she's collected the trash and got most of that ready to be loaded into the car for tomorrows dump run.Then she has to get our dad's lunch ready for work tonight as he has to go back and work on more long line painting,so when he gets home at 4:00pm,it's dinner early and a shower and to bed for a few hours then back out to work at 9:00pm.Skin sis called and wanted to come over for dinner tonight but Mom told her it wouldn't be a good time as she'll be running all over the place trying to get things ready for my dad to go to work again.She'll be coming over again on Sunday.Mom is home with us all day again before she goes out tomorrow and even though she's busy,we are so happy to have her home with us.We are so hoping for some deck time later on but with everything going on for tonight that might not be happening.Yaaay!We finally got some deck time with the parronts and got to join them for dinner,we even had some bow tie macaroni for dinner with them!

Oh those mice are so crafty and no matter what you do they'll find another way around it.Mom loves those Mouse Magic packets that you just throw wherever the problem with the critters are.Mom is going to pick up more to put in all our closets and other problem areas so that we won't be getting anymore mice problems in the fall.
This morning was a bright sunny and warm day again with the highs of 81 the lows of 68 and at 8:30pm its 75.Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and quickly swept our room,then she got Dixie harnessed and put in the car seat and Mom took off to Nana's and they got stuck in traffic that was so bad that Mom didn't get to do more than 20mph the whole way down,it took her nearly an hour and a half to go what usually takes Mom a 15minute drive.Nana was so worried as she kept trying to call Mom and when Mom walked in the door of Nana's house Nana was so relieved to see her,she was so worried that Mom got into an accident!The traffic is going to be really bad here for the next several weeks now.Mom set Dixie up in his cage there in the sun room and then Skin sis met Mom and Nana at Nana's house and they went to Hyannis.They went to the shoe store in Hyannis to return some sandals.Then from there they went to Yarmouth and had lunch at Riverway and Mom and Nana had schrod with green beans and mashed potatoes.Skin sis had chicken parmesan. From there they went to the Dollar Tree in Yarmouth,then from there they went to Marstons Mills to Aubouchan Hardware store so Nana could get some cement to fix her bird bath with.Then from there they went to Rite Aid.From there they went back to Nana's house where they all had a cold drink and some cookies and then Mom collected Dixie and she and skin sis left to go home.It took Mom over a half hour to get home.When Mom was in Rite Aid she had a really bad headache and she had bad cramps.Mom was happy to get home and still had her headache but had to call her Uncle Vito in Washington for Nana as Nana was so afraid of the fires and wanted to make sure he and his wife were all right.Mom finally got a hold of them and they were both fine and the fires weren't near them but were closer to their cabin up in the mountains there.Mom got dad his dinner and they ate out on the deck and we all got to go out and join them as it was much cooler by then.Mom and dad never came inside til well after 7:30pm.We had a good time being outside in the cooler air.Now that its nearly 9:00pm Mom is just starting our visits.

This morning is another hot bright sunny day and the highs for the day will be 83 and with the lows of 69.Its 86 right now.Mom got us all up and fed us our bean mix,cleaned our cages and then swept up the floor as it was again too hot to run the vacuum.Mom is home with us again today and it will be another boring day for us as we won't be allowed to go outside any time during the day at least.We finally got to go outside and join our parronts for dinner last night when it cooled off enough for us to do so.Mom will be busy making more trash to take to the dump and cleaning out more things from the house,its such and ongoing job.That egg salad concoction that your sweet daddy made for dinner sure sounds good!It sounds like you're having the same temperatures as we are and our dew point is back up to 72 again!As soon as it cooled off tonight we all got to go outside and join my parronts for dinner and yell at the wild birds.Mom was too hot again to cook anything in the oven so she made leftover chicken from the BBQ in the pan on the stove top with the balsamic vinegar marinade and made mashed potatoes and peas and carrots,Mom loves having BBQ leftovers as all she has to do is heat and throw something good to go with it.Those mice sure are cagey and so far Mom hasn't had anymore problems with them in the house so far.I sure hope that they start leaving you all alone also.They are no fun to have in the house sneakily doing damage behind walls and under the house as well.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses for sweet Ginger!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hi Ginger
That Mouse Magic is really good stuff because when Mom brought it home when we had a mice problem in our attic my dad threw all the packages in the box throughout the whole attic and after that we didn't hear any scampering of mice feet over our heads.Mice hate mint and Nana gave Mom some mint from her garden which she's keeping in our TV room bay window growing so she'll have it for them next time.Oh you never go up in the attic in the heat,you're right you could actually bake your dinner up there!
This morning was another bright warm and sunny morning and as soon as Mom got dad off to work very early as usual,she did some quiet work around the house before she got us up at our usual time. The highs for today are 85 the lows of 70 but right now its 88 degrees and stifling with a dew point of 71.Its another day that we won't be going outside because of the heat.Mom cleaned our cages and fed us and swept our room as it's too hot to run the vacuum again.Mom will try to vacuum again later when it gets cooler if it ever does.We lost our power again this morning and Mom thought that it would be gone for a long time.But it came on again after a few minutes,just enough time to have to reset all the clocks and vcrs,coffee maker etc.What a pain in the tail feathers that is,and just when Mom got all her clocks almost in sync with one another from each room and now her VCR is off again after she got that programed to record on time.It seems our power goes off at least a few times during the week lately and its becoming so annoying to have to keep setting the clocks Mom can never get them all in sync with each other for days afterwards. Mom is home with us all day today and other than making more trash and cleaning up more clutter its going to be a very boring day,but we don't mind it at all as long as she's here with us!
We finally got to go outside and join Mom and dad for dinner as it was much cooler then.We got to have our snacks and a fruit bowl and watch all the wild birdies come and go from the bird bath that dad cleaned and filled up for them.Mom made a dinner of left over Italian sausages from the BBQ cut up mixed Italian veggies and rice with the sauce from the balsamic vinegar marinade.It was hot enough making that on the stove top but better than heating up the whole house with the oven!

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a bright sunny hot morning with the highs for the day of 84 the lows of 69 and at 5:00pm its 84.Mom got us up and fed us our bean mix,cleaned our cages and swept our room,then she gave my dad his breakfast and made his coffee and then started collecting more clutter from our bird room.As she was in the middle of cleaning Skin sis called and told her that she and Nana were coming over for the BBQ.Mom got the meats out to BBQ.Italian sausages,steak,three chicken halves,hamburgers,pork ribs, thin sliced steak and veal.Mom got them all in marinade of balsamic vinegar and got all the utensils out,rolls and condiments on the table on the deck.Nana and skin sis came in and Nana had brought some meat also for the grill and she brought a rum cake for dessert.A few minutes later skin bro came in the door.Then dad had the grill ready and Mom brought everything out and put it on the grill,skin sis helped get the dishes and Mom got the table set and served everyone.It was so hot outside even on the deck under the umbrella,Mom was sweating big time running back and forth from the grill to the deck.We weren't allowed to come outside as it was way too hot.Mom served the rum cake and cleaned up after everyone was done.Then everyone came inside as the sun over took the deck.Mom is tired now and couldn't wait to get in her shower.Everyone left around 3:30pm and Mom finished cleaning up the kitchen and got sandwiches made for dad's lunches for the week and then cleaned our cages for the night and gave us our snacks.Mom has plenty of leftovers for a nice meal for most of the week,skin sis took quite a bit home with her to have for her dinners.Your sweet daddy should stay inside where its cooler and not mess with all those palm leaves in all this heat!Especially in those 100+ temperatures,we were in the mid 80's and that was hot enough for us!

  Hi Ginger
Mom and all of us here agree with your sweet daddy that it would be nice to be able to go to a show or watch a movie that every other word out of the actors mouths isn't fowl and vulgar.Your daddy is so incredible to be able to fix nearly anything and everything,that cooling system in the car sounds so complicated!You guys are all melting there in such triple digits!I guess we can't complain about our mid 80's here and the humidity that's even worse!
We woke up to bright sunshine and heat again.The highs for the day are 85 and the lows will be 67 and right now its 80 and very humid.Mom got us all up fed us and cleaned our cages and swept our room,she's not going to run that hot vacuum today to sweat even more!Then she got dad his breakfast and got his coffee going and then she started on cleaning out the pantry.She had been collecting all kinds of containers to use to give the skin sibs stuff to take home in whenever she made a meal or some dessert,they have been starting to overtake the pantry.She needs more boxes to get all the other stuff arranged out there so she can find things easily.So far both Mom and dad will be home with us all day and all day tomorrow as well.Dad is out there sweating mowing the lawn and getting it ready for our BBQ tomorrow.Mom will finish with the pantry and then she'll be starting in the spare room off the mud room to start cleaning that room out.There is so much to be done and so little time in which to do it in.And there is more than enough junk to get rid of in a house that keeps collecting over the years!

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a bright warm sunny day with the highs for the day of 82,the lows of 65,and right now at 6:30pm its 77.Mom got us all up,fed us and cleaned our cages and quickly swept our room,then she went out to the sun room to check on the little sparrow and found that he had died sometime in early morning.Mom felt so bad as she tried everything she could to help her and make her feel comfortable and safe.Mom left her there and got all the trash and recyclables in the car to take to Nana's.Then she got Dixie and harnessed him up and put him in the car seat.Before they got to Nana's Mom stopped at Buddy's car repair shop which is right down Nana's street and got her car inspected.She took Dixie out with her while she waited for them to do the inspection and Buddy(the owner)was happy to see that Mom had brought Dixie with her.Then they went to Nana's which was just a few houses down the street.When Mom and Dixie got there Mom got Dixie set up in his cage in the sun room and then Mom loaded hers and Nana's trash and recyclables in Nana's car and after having some tea and a waffle,they went off to the dump.From there they went to the Pet Depot to see about ordering Trixie(our cousin Jenday)a cage.They have an Amazon and a CAG in the store and they were in the back of the store talking to one another in words.You could hear them both talking up a storm together all the way up front.Then Mom and Nana went to Stop&Shop so Nana could get some banana's but they bought a few more items,Mom got some small cake mixes to make cookies with.We can't wait to see those as they are bright yellow(lemon)bright red(red velvet)bright green and bright orange too.Then they went back to Nana's where Nana made them some lunch of salad and veggies and tuna and salsa.Well,the salsa was supposed to be mild and it was fire engine hot!They both had a small dish of ice cream to put the fire out.Nana cut up some fresh fruit for Dixie and Bella and Trixie.Then Nana got Trixie and Mom weighed her as Nana was afraid that Trixie was losing grams as she wasn't really eating that much.(She's so picky)!Trixie was fine at 117grams.It was too hot to do any yard work by the time they got back from their errands so after lunch they sat in the living room and watched a little TV before Nana made Mom go home to beat the traffic.It took Mom almost an hour just to get from here to there.When Mom got home,she put what little groceries she had away,cleaned Kallie and Candida's cages and gave them a snack.Then as she was getting ready to bury the little sparrow dad came home and he went out and dug the grave for her and Mom carefully wrapped her up and buried her by our frothers and fisters under the Hydrangea bush.It was still warm outside and sunny so Mom brought us all outside for some sunshine,no showers as it was too late and we all got to join them for dinner.Dad saw the hummingbird come by just as Mom went inside to finish bringing dinner out.Skin sis called Mom and told her she was c

  Hi Ginger
What a wonderful Anniversary celebration your sweet Parronts had yesterday!There's nothing like being on the beach and walking around by the ocean.And how nice of the restaurant to have the celebration all set up on their table there!What an awesome place to have done all that for your awesome parronts!That surely must've been a night to remember for your sweet Momma Lori!
This morning was a bright and cooler morning with little to no humidity,the highs for the day being 78 the lows of 62,its 75 right now.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and fed us then swept our room.She's going to vacuum it later on.Then she went to the sun room and took care of the little sparrow who was actually sitting up waiting for her breakfast!Mom filled her dish with more seeds.She sure does eat good.Dad has the window open out there for her to hear the outside birds like herself and to get her fresh air.Mom started collecting the trash to bring to the dump tomorrow and all our birdie trash brought out to the garage to pack in the car.Mom is hoping that she can get some things done today and that no one needs her for anything.Nana fell last night and Mom couldn't sleep all night just praying she didn't fall on her bad leg where she had the surgery,Mom wanted to go over there to help her but Nana said not to,Mom will be there tomorrow.So far its a boring day here with nothing eggciting going on,but that's all right because Mom is home with us all day and we may get some time out on the deck later on.Mom is thinking of baking some brownies later on as dad doesn't have anything to munch on after dinner for a snack!
Well,Mom never made the brownies and as soon as she got done with the chores she took us all outside for some sunshine and a shower.She even took the injured sparrow out with us and cleaned her cage out and let her sit on the deck rail so she could see all her family and kin out there.When Dad came home he helped Mom put a straw on her leg and tape it down,Mom was hoping that it would prevent her from holding her leg out behind her but it didn't.She did enjoy some sunshine and started eating again.When Mom brought us all inside (we enjoyed dinner time out there with them)she brought the sparrow back to the sunroom as it was time for the wild birds to start roosting.She seems to be much quieter now and doesn't struggle as much when Mom tries to clean her cage.BC gave Mom a hard time last night and we got kicked off and couldn't finish our blogs.It kept cycling and cycling and then telling us timed out error.Hope that isn't the case tonight!

  Hi Ginger
First of all we all want to wish Uncle John and Aunt Lori a very HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!HAPPY 22ND TO THE BOTH OF YOU FROM ALL OF US HERE!We wish them both a very special day together!
This morning is a dark dreary cold rainy day with the highs for the day of 75,the lows of 68,right now its 68.Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and room and then she went out to the injured sparrow that my dad found in our yard.Her leg is really bad.Mom cleaned the cage the little sparrow is in and gave her fresh water and as soon as she's done with some chores she'll see if she can get something like a splint to put on her leg.Mom is so surprised she did so well and survived the night.There's nothing to talk about today and its going to be another boring day here with Mom,but we're so happy that she's home with us so we're not complaining.Any day Mom's home with us is a good day boring or not!

This morning was a bright sunny morning when it started out but still a little on the cool side.The highs for the day 76 the lows of 64,its 77 right now.Mom opened a few windows as it was really cold last night and had to shut them all.Mom got us all up,cleaned our cages and fed us our bean mix and swept our room.So far its been a quiet day with no one coming over as everyone is in work and Mom will concentrate on vacuuming the house and doing the chores she never got done all weekend.We are hoping that the sunshine comes back so we can get some deck time and a shower or two,right now its all cloudy.There's nothing interesting going on today so far so it'll be another boring day here but we're not complaining as Mom is home with us all day!
Does your sweet Daddy ever get any down time.He's always so busy with cleaning,shopping and fixing things around the house and working at the Police station!Mom only wishes my daddy could be more like he is!LOL!

This morning was a dark cold rainy day here with the highs for the day of 69 the lows of 62,its 66 right now at 6:00pm.Mom got us all up and fed us our warm bean mix with sweet potatoes and cleaned our cages and swept our room.Then she got dad his breakfast and made the coffee and just as she was about to vacuum the house,skin sis came in with our frother and fister,Peepers and Celine.Mom went down cellar with skin sis to put in her laundry and collected what little she had of hers and dad's to add to it and then they came back upstairs and out came the dremmel,birdicure set and as it was raining and cold outside she took Celine and did her overgrown beak first,it was down under her lower beak,she was fairly good this time as Mom was getting her done,just stuck out her tongue a few times.Then Mom did Celine's nails and flight feathers and gave her a good trim.Then it was Peepers turn for his nails which were so long that when Mom clipped just the tips off they bled.He got dredged in flour before he could be put back on the play gym.Then skin sis ordered small pizzas for Mom and dad and herself,Mom got a veggie pizza,skin sis got a chicken ranch bacon pizza and dad got a mushroom.They all ate together and we all got some pizza crusts.Then skin sis got the laundry and Mom and she folded it and skin sis got hers in her basket and Mom put what she had of hers and dads and brought it upstairs.Then skin sis painted Mom's nails and then skin sis had to leave so she packed up Peepers and Celine and her laundry and left.Mom got dad's sandwiches made for the week and then she gave us our afternoon snacks and then took a shower.When she came out of the shower,the sun came out for a few minutes.It felt good but didn't last long.So much for our BBQ today and our getting some outside time in the sunshine.As skin sis and Mom were folding the laundry a blue jay flew over the umbrella on the deck and hit the dining room window.He was just stunned and flew back off to wherever he was headed for.
Just another boring day here and Mom never got anything done again today in the house!
Oh your poor sweet parronts must be so exhausted from being up so early!What a sweet daddy you have to bring your awesome Momma some tacos back so she could enjoy them too!What stupid people to ignore the barricades!What do they think they were out there for?
