LaLo and I have been pals for years, and when Flash needed a home, and due to my failing health, I thought LaLo would be better off living at the McFlock home, but l missed her from the start and Flash was determined not to be my friend! When it was obvious that he and Denise were very compatible, we talked it over and decided to make the swap! Flash is Happy, and I got my cuddle bug back, everybody is a winner! The major downside is, for the first time in 17 years, I will not be able to experience the true love of a Cockatoo, and yes, I will miss Flash but the swap was for him, not me...

Love from Ms LaLo, Chuck, & the Flash

Hi! My name is Ms LaLo~Come & go sailing with me this Summer....

I am a Congo African Grey from Rock Island, IL.

Kissy face, daddy's girl, and daddy's chin candy...

12 years old   F

Congo African Grey

Broccoli, corn on the cob,aunt Betty's birdie bread, sweet potatoes plain, unsalted peanuts, pasta, and scrambled eggs...

On the perch on the on the door of Jenny's old cage and on then cage ad play gym Flash left behind! She has a multitude of choices where to play, but she like to always be able to see me, she is never in a cage

She stays separated from Jen, but they get along better now...for which I am thankful…

Dad's crazy, I do no like the green witch...


He loves me to pieces, and I have a huge free roaming play area, and lots of cardboard to chew on, and I do that all day long! My daddy provides for me a wonderful life, and for that, I love him dearly...

She is by far the sweetest and lovingest bird that has ever come into our home, I missed her a lot during the 6 months she stayed at aunt Denise's home, and if you pick her up, she has to kiss you, I love it... Much like my Angel Christy, she doesn't talk, but if you knew her, you would know she don't have to, to convey her love and happiness....

I love, & love to be loved, and I give and get plenty of both, live life to the fullest, time is our most precious commodity, don't waste any of it....

Scenario 1:

Jack goes duck hunting before school and then pulls into the school parking lot with his shotgun in his truck's gun rack.

1957 - Vice Principal comes over, looks at Jack's shotgun, goes to his car and gets his shotgun to show Jack.

2014- School goes into lock down, FBI called, Jack hauled off to jail and never sees his truck or gun again. Counselors called in for traumatized students and teachers.

Scenario 2:

Johnny and Mark get into a fist fight after school.

1957 - Crowd gathers. Mark wins. Johnny and Mark shake hands and end up buddies.

2014 - Police called and SWAT team arrives -- they arrest both Johnny and Mark. They are both charged with assault and both expelled even though Johnny started it.

  WOW! It Has Been Raining Here All Day Long....
Not one bit of sunshine today & tomorrow is suppose to be worse with lightening & thunders! RATS! Then it's going to get stifling hot! I'm not looking forward to that!

I had a greyt day in spite of the weather. Mom was busy making something to honor Queen CoCoPuff & came out with a picture that took forever! Then that place, pizap.com, swallowed it whole & Mom couldn't make that site burp it back up for nothing! She was just about to save it, too! Mom had to fix dinner by that time. Once she got dinner cooking & all the salad fixings cut up, it was back at the computer to start another picture.

Tonight, Mom fixed spaghetti for dinner & I always get a bit of that! One day Mom's going to catch me with noodles on my beak but so far, she hasn't been able to. Heehee! I just stop eating & stare at her until she goes away! It has been working lately, but I don't know about Mom. She may get sneaky & set up the iPad or her phone & tape me! That will be the last straw! I will begin to protest loudly if she does that!

Big hugs to all, SamIAm

  Happy Sunday Sweet Lady Birdy!
Today is mighty overcast but it is still brimming with lots of good things to find! It will be an adventure today! I have completely destroyed my new toy except for the bell & I'm tirelessly working on removing its clapper because then I look all pathetic to Mom because I've broken it. She doesn't jump up and hurry to replace it. She said I broke it on purpose & now I have to learn to deal with the consequences. I HATE when she gets all philosophical about things & doesn't give me the reaction I was hoping for. RATS! But there are several other goals I am working on like shredding the rope perches. I have a rope perch with one of those knots at the end. I worked on that knot but then turned around & began working on the end where it is screwed to the cage! Well, I weakened it enough that I can't stand on it anymore! Mom said I looked like a lumberjack that sawed himself & the tree limb he was standing on to fall to the ground. She said that was what the knot was for then called me a knot head. I figured out how they make these rope perches & I like taking them apart! I just can't help myself.

Well, my work awaits me so I better scoot along! Have yourself a pleasant Sunday, Ms. Lalo! Hope all in your home have a greyt day. Hugs to all, SamIAm

  Oh NO! Miss Lalo, That Is Terrible News!
That is so wrong for Limon's previous owners to be doing this horrible thing. Not only to your good Poppa, but also to Limon!! I can't even believe a grown adult would play this "game". There's got to be something emotionally wrong with them! No one said it would be an easy thing for them to do but this back & forth garbage is wounding those who just wanted to help them out. Now it sounds like they need a good kick in the keester! I am so so sorry this is going on & can understand why your dad is not feeling so great. My Mom would probably want to snatch that woman's hair off her head & give it to Limon to use as a pillow. That's just cruel! To everyone! Here's our hugs for all to help with the Limon debacle.

After reading an article on the finance pages about the K-Cup single brew servings, pops has given them up. It seems that the over all cost is $35.00 a pound, as compared to buying coffee by the bag. OUCH. No wonder my birdie bank is feeling on the light side. Like W. C. Fields use to say, THERE'S A SUCKER BORN EVERY MINUTE, and pops is going to stop being a lolly pop.

Well, while your Pop & Limon are getting used to each other (you gotta feel for Limon, he's wondering what is going on!?!?) Let's go sailing!! I towed over a sloop & we can dance on the waves of the great Castle lake! You'll have to be Captain because I'm just a rigger & waiting to take orders from you!! By the way, I brought my fishing rod, too! Get Jenny & Ziggy (if you want) and let's go SAILING!!! WooooHoooo! Sam opens the door to usher out Ms. Lalo for a day of summer fun!! (You better head south although our temps are a bit cooler, it's still summer here!) Hugs to all, SamIAm

  Happy Fourth Of July, Miss Lalo!
What wonderful patriotic art forms your good Papa found for the 4th of July! It was very nice indeed! Today, Mom is spending the 4th with your's truly. We'll be having ribs, like you, but Mom knew it possibly could be a washed out 4th so ordered her some ribs already grilled & cut them up & froze them for later. Now, it's later, even with the sun out & it looking so beautiful, it just makes the day that much easier for her & me.

Mom's mate is on his 2 wk motorcycle run which took him to Nova Scotia. They have a cottage right on the coast. Yep. Think about where Arthur is headed now. Last couple of years they went to the west. Mom worried & prayed over them that they wouldn't be turned into shiska-bobs (which is his name...Bob) with all those fires. This year they went northeast since most of the west is burnt. Now, they're there for a hurricane. Sheesh!

Hope your day is fantastic & hope to see you soon at the wedding. Well, I might be there. Right now I'm in the dungeon of the Castle because the Guards are claiming I bird napped another BOTD king. ~sigh~

  Hi Lalo... King Pepper here
It was sort of work to get to the castle, but it was fun at the same time. mom discovered there were lots of changes at places that she had been to some time ago and she wants to go back to them again. Bloodwork... Mom hates that, but has to get it done every year. Shhh, she hates needles. I told her I can bite her and draw blood but she said no thanks. heh heh heh I do have a wicked beak. So your dad is buying ribs. Yummy. Does he share with you? I love chicken bones and turkey bones, but have tasted beef too and it is pretty good. My favorite is chicken and I can turn a chicken bone to toothpicks too fast for Mom's comfort. I just don't waste time like the others do - I don't want Mom to think I don't like it and possibly take it away. :( See you at the wedding tomorrow? We will be there at the begging, but then will have to be silent once Mom heads out to go dancing. Have a good night. Hugs from Quebec.

  Hi Lalo...Ziggy... Jenny
King Pepper here, with a special message to all my loyal bird subjects. After being picked up and brought to the castle in a way I still do not fully recollect, I woke up realizing I am Bird of the Month, a King, and I surely could not have done this alone. I could only vote for myself once a day, but TiPaul usually beat me to that too. And so this message – I want to thank each and every one of you… Angel & Pepper, Baby, Bilou, Cheyenne, Chico, Chipper, Chloe, Chuey, Chyna, Cookie, Cori & Boo Boo, Dino, Dixie, Falco, Finnegan, Grendel, Gus, Hulk, Indiana Sam, Ipo, Jolie, Jetta, Kaji, Kahlua, Kiddo, Lalo & Ziggy, Little Angel & Sky, Mango (Sunshine’s flock), Mango(Green’s flock), Mango (Lola’s flock), Mayo, Mikey, Miranda & CuBird, Molly, Ms BB, Norman, Oz, Panther, Pearl & Silver, Picabo, Pico & Poco, Pimer, Poirot, Polly & Zippy, Pookie, Popeye, Raffi, RoofTop, Sam, SamIAm, Snowy, Spot, Squak, Sugar, SweetPepper & Kacey, Tooth and Sebastian & finches for coming by and voting for me, whether it was every day… with a blog, without a blog… once in a while. They all added up and I made it to the castle, actually to the BC castle and to Ms. BB’s castle and it is only the second evening and I have been having the time of my life. I thought I had fun training Mom. Heh heh heh – this is going to be more fun than I ever imagined in my entire life. I have had friends stop by to visit and congratulate me and I cannot begin to thank you all enough for that too. I just don’t know where to begin. With the Canada Day party celebration yesterday, I was pretty tired, and I asked my frother to introduce me to his special friend Lizzie, who I know to be the bestest cook ever. Now food is something this bird has a taste for. That table that is at the castle is something I would like to have at home, for days when each of our flock wants something different to eat and Mom finds that so totally wrong. It is the best thing I have come across so far, and I have only just begun my journey. I will do my best to post my diary on my page every couple of days, for those of you who want to know what I have been up to.

Yes, Jenny get on over here and have a couple of drinks with me.

  Hello Ms. Lalo!
What a scary time you guys had yesterday! I hope those storms calmed down for today! I hate it when storms happen in the night & the power goes out! Mom has a ton of flashlights. It's VERY dark out here, with no street lights or that many houses to be seen. The forest is too thick! Anyway, you guys ride it out safely.

Now a hurricane is brewing & suppose to head up the east coast. We're praying that it turns a sharp right & peters out into the Atlantic! You know what the first hurricane of the season is going to be called?? NO, not Lalo!! But it is going to be called "Arthur"!! Haha! We found that to be funny. Funny now, because no one has been hurt by it. And funny because we could imagine a big hurricane "Art" barreling down on everyone!

Get some good rest! Stay safe! Hugs, SamIAm

Whoa, hope you get your power back on soon! That could be detrimental to your good PapaS health! Duck & cover! The rain gurus say it's heading for you! Hopefully it will be a lot of noise then move on out! If I could throw the Waxhaw Split at ya, I would! It just seems to me those storms have a mind of their own.

Tonight we're have spaghetti & salad! Mom puts these fresh diced tomatoes on my noodles & I just eat them UP! Noodles are okay but I enjoy mine doctored up a bit. I am a happy bird tonight!

Mom's going online to do some of Felix's Mom's treat thingies. She needs the training! I'm afraid she maybe one of those 'special students' & is a bit slower than most. I will keep whistling the "CHARGE!" tune to help her attack her assignment with a proper attitude.

ooohhh, your poor babies and daddy without power! And you need the air on when it is so hot and humid! We are all happy to hear you are all safe and sound! We had 2 family movie nights this weekend, hot socks! On Friday we screened Free Birds about the turkeys who do not want to be on the Thanksgiving menu! I found it very drole, indeed! My snob fister Miranda just turned he back to the movie and watched the sun set. Doo of course was out snuggling with mom, his usual place! Then Sunday we watched Frozen which was about a queen and a pricess--I thought it was about me and Miranda at first..which I think would make a much better movie! Felix could direct it! Doo had dessert with mom and filled up on popcorn so he bailed early. I got to snuggle the rest of the time with mom making lotsa holes in her shirt. Then Cookie came out and untied dad's sneakers, chased Petey and then we all got tucked into roost and had peanuts. All in all, a busy, but greyt weekend! Love and winghugs, CuBird

  Hi Lalo
The Château Ramezay is a museum and historic building on Notre-Dame Street in Old Montreal, opposite Montreal City Hall. Built in 1705 as the residence of then-governor of Montreal, Claude de Ramezay, the Château was the first building proclaimed as a historical monument in Quebec and is the province’s oldest private history museum. It was designated a National Historic Sites of Canada in 1949. Over the years, the Château changed owners and functions several times, with Ramezay's descendants selling the manor to the fur-trading Compagnie des Indes. From 1775, it became the Canadian headquarters for the Continental Army when it seized Montreal. Benjamin Franklin stayed there overnight in 1776, while trying to raise troops to fight for the Americans in the American Revolutionary War. After the conquest until 1849 the house was again used as a governor's residence, this time by the British governors. For official purposes it was known as Government House and was the governor's official Montreal residence which complemented his other residence in Quebec City (the Chateau St. Louis), and a country retreat in Sorel. In 1878, the building opened its doors to host Université de Montréal's first Faculty of Medicine. The building was bought by the Numismatic and Antiquarian Society of Montreal and converted into an historical museum and portrait gallery in 1894. Sir Andrew Taylor designed alterations to the Chateau in 1895. Today, the museum's collection is composed mainly of gifts from private Montrealers and is estimated at 30,000 objects, including manuscripts, printed works, numismatic items, ethnological items, works of art, paintings, prints and furniture. From 1997 to 2002, the Château Ramezay underwent indoor and outdoor restorations, including the creation of the Governor’s Garden, inaugurated in 2000. In 2003, the Château Ramezay Museum earned the National Award of Excellence from the Landscape Architects of Canada. It has greeted more than a million visitors.

Followup appt is for Sept this fall and she's working on rebuilding her strength which is improving with each beautiful day God offers! Happy Days!! We so love the Praying Hands Uncle Chuck sent.

  Hi Lalo
The Redpath Museum is a museum of natural history belonging to McGill University and located on the university's campus at 859 Sherbrooke Street West in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It was built in 1882 as a gift from the sugar baron Peter Redpath. It houses collections of interest to ethnology, biology, paleontology, and mineralogy/geology. The collections were started by some of the same individuals who founded the Smithsonian and Royal Ontario Museum collections. The current director is David Green. Commissioned by Redpath to mark the 25th anniversary of Sir John William Dawson's appointment as Principal, the Museum was designed by A.C. Hutchison and A. D. Steele. McGill University's Redpath Museum Web site characterizes it as an "idiosyncratic expression of eclectic Victorian Classicism" as well as "an unusual and late example of the Greek Revival in North America." It is the oldest building built specifically to be a museum in Canada. Both the museum's interior and exterior have been utilized as a set, for movies and commercials.

  Hi Lal
I'm not saying it's hot here, but at 8:30 last night it was still 85. We hit 100.5 mid afternoon. It has to cool off a little for me to go outside.

Come visit me, Jetta.

  Hi LaLo
The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me!
I want people to know why I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.
