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 Lee~Ready for the Derby & Easter...

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

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

13 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....

  Are ya ready for the BC Derby-Ms LaLo Lee
Once again dad has a doctor appointment at our VA medical clinic, that just cuts the heart out of our day! He will be waiting around a lot to be called into the various specialty rooms, certainly not much fun, but a necessary evil, none the less! We are having another gloomy overcast day with more rain coming, when will it ever end! Our day will be filled with boring stuff, but aunt Denise always entertains us, she is so sweet! Have a great Monday dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

  Hi from the Downs-Ms LaLo Lee
Once again most of our day will be spent in dads Orthopedic doctor's office! He needs to have his legs checked out, one more necessary evil, he hates days like this! We will not have time for very many notes and votes, but we will be back tomorrow! Somebody is coming to give dad a ride to his appointment, thankfully! Have a great TGIF BC buddies, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

  Hi dear BC gang, love from Ms LaLo
Our weather is not the nicest with more rain coming, oh well, it is that time of the year! Dad has more of the same old thing today, he sure will be glad when he finally gets caught up! His vital numbers were great yesterday, but all those visits drive him crazy, he is a very private person! We got the sweetest phone call from Sugar and aunt Eileen, needless to say, we are very fond of that sweet family! Have a great Thursday dear friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

  Hi Miss LaLo
So nice to hear from the Dallas flock. Mom is keeping super busy these days. Some work, some charities and of course catering to our every whim. My frother, Caden, has come on like a house on fire. You would not recognize him. Gone is the sick and terrified bird that arrived in our flock. Now he is a bold, healthy and happy little chap. He is way to charming for my taste as he steals all the attention of visitors that is rightfully mine. Hehehe. So we are a happy flock and each day we all count our blessings and are grateful for what we have.

I hope that life is treating your flock well. We will try to stay in touch more often. MM

Come visit me, Caden - is my name, exploring is my game & Monty Mae - I'm queen of this household!.

  Hi LaLo,
just thought I'd pop in and say hi and to see how you are doing over at your Aunt Denise's while your daddy works hard at his recovery so you and Jen can go back home...as soon as possible.

I am with mom while she is typing for me. I am chewing up old magazines...love to do that.

We are still in a very warm weather pattern, but we are smart enough to know it won't last forever! Our truck would not start yesterday but our neighbor man helped dad get it running again! The battery in now recharged again, and that is a good thing! It will be more of the same for dad today, and he is steadily chipping away at the mess! Not much news here once again, so we will wish you all a great Monday and please give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

For us, it will be in the high 60's today with overcast skies and a big chance of afternoon rain! We love all the pics of horses and riders, aunt Denise does so well, with her magical Photo Shop machine! We had our new home cleaner come in yesterday and she will go to the store for us when need be and even do our laundry, dad is not so sure about the laundry, under wear is kind of a private thing! We have another day of deep cleaning going on, will it ever end! our trash can is full to overflowing! Have a very nice Thursday, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

  Hi BC friends, from Ms LaLo
...please don't forget me, I get so lonely sometimes! Dad had a hard time getting his old motor started today, he worked hard yesterday and is sore everywhere, but he got a lot done, one half step at a time, LOL! He did not realize that LaLo's area was such a mess, her cage and area will be first, then Jenny's, she has two cages but is never in either of them! We are getting some much needed rain, we are way behind of our yearly total! Have a great day dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

...I am hanging out at aunt Denise's home and having a good time, but I miss my daddy! She is so good to me and there are 2 other Greys already living here! I will never be number one in this house, but I am blessed to be just living here! My daddy is continuing to work on his strength and walking, but he is still very wobbly, and still can not stand up for any length of time! He misses LaLo and I very much, they could always provide a spark of entertainment and love when needed the most!

We are supposed to be in the low 70's for about a week, we'll see about that! We don't have a lot planned for the day, just more thorough cleaning of bird cages and areas, yuck!, not a lot of fun!

  Hello Miss LaLo!
I'm so very sorry to hear about your good Poppa being in the hospital. We've been praying for his quick mend & return to his home as soon as humanly possible.

Mom understands completely. She was very very sick & went to her doctor. Her doctor immediately sent her to the hospital which is across the street. Mom had sounded terrible & it just got worse even with antibiotics. She's still has her days mixed up so getting back to normal....well, that hasn't happened yet. Maybe NEVER with Mom. She has a time keeping the days straight but hey, she can STILL COOK!! You should see her latest apple pie! It was almost too pretty to eat. I said....almost! HA!

We will be keeping your good Poppa in our prayers, my lady friend. Hugs to you all, SamIAm

Looks like the deep South sent us some of their rain, but that's okay, our area needs more to get our water tables higher for our farmers! We are into our time change and dad does not like it, as if anybody cares what he thinks! We will all get used to it soon enough, but we still do not have to like it!

...I do not need any artificial Mickey Mouse pretenders who think their lame jokes are funny, because the are not! We used to be such good friends, but your lunatic dad changed all of that, what a weirdo, and we did not do anything to trigger this attack on us! We got logged on again, and that makes us happy, yippee! Our day started out at 61degrees, that is very remarkable for this time of the year, but we are aware that there will be more nasty weather down the road, so it goes in the late Winter and early Spring! Dad's nurse comes tomorrow to check him out, but he should do well with all his numbers, except he gained a couple of pounds, it is so very hard not to, food can be a such a comfort to lonely old people! He will work on continuing to shed the extra weight, it is for his own good! Give our best love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

  Such Strange Weather We're Having! Scary, Too!
Today has been a stormy day at our home. Mom has mostly watched the news as huge trees have toppled over all across the state. Sometimes they toppled a little bit too close to home, too! What was so odd this time is the wind actually sounded like a jet taking off but never stopped. Mom’s mate even expressed that a couple of times tonight after getting home from his work. He wasn’t here when the storm hit. During the night, it rained & there was some instances of thunder. It passed on in the morning hours & the sun lit up the sky like it was going to be a beautiful day. But, uh-oh, it was only the calm before the storm.

While Mom’s house was still in the sunshine, we watched black ominous clouds rolling so fast & coming at us with a vengeance! And the roar of the wind was terrifying! Mom thought it was a tornado! The two cats that usually sleep the day away upstairs were awaken with a start & soon were downstairs on Mom’s bed hiding in her pillows! The “jet” sound was really freaking them out. CoCoPuff found her way under Mom’s bed & didn’t stick her head out for most of the day until it was time to eat. Mom stayed in the kitchen with me & even started pulling stuff out of the closet underneath the stairs in case we had to make a mad dash for shelter. Tornado watches & warnings were going off on the TV frequently until, that is, the lights began to blink on & off as well as other things & BOOM, no power! Mom hurried to call it in but before she could take all the steps you have to do to report your power being out, it came back on! This would happen every 10 to 15 minutes & over half a dozen times during the day & early evening. There was no getting on the computer. There was no way to watch tv for storm warnings. So Mom just had to use her own eyes & ears as to what was going to happen.

She couldn’t cook anything because of the power situation. So, it was a peanut butter & jelly sandwich dinner. Mom let me have a tiny bit of peanut butter on some crackers! I was in heaven! I do like me some peanut butter! It tastes real good on celery sticks, too. Mom found her battery operated radio & turned it on to the emergency station. She even set up some candles around the house in case it was night when the power went out.

I had a greyt day getting to be on Mom’s shoulder where I felt very happy & safe to be. Mom had that nasty traveling cage ready for me to go into in case we had to go into the closet. Don’t tell HER this, but there was NO way I would go in that travel cage willingly. I have a feeling Mom’s shirt is more warm & comfy than that cage! But it is small enough for the closet & Mom says it’s to protect me from those horrible cats!

Things are calming down now & the temps seem a bit cooler. I don’t know if it’s suppose to get real cold or not since the power has been messed up.

We hope things are alright where you are & that you are warm & safe tonight! I’m thanking our lucky stars that

  Good Evening Miss LaLo....
.....Well, what a day Mom & I had, today. Mom got an email from her daughter asking her to delete any photographs with her & her fiancé in them that are on the internet. Especially the photos on pizap & one on FaceBook. Mom had been taking their baby photos, enhancing them on pizap, then copying the photos onto vellum & decoupaged them onto square glass candle holders. 4" by 4". Each side had a different photo of the bride & the groom as babies & it changes as they grow up, of course. They pop once you place one of those battery lit candles inside the candle holder. They were going on the guests tables & also onto a special table that will have photos of them with relatives & guests throughout the years. Mom felt terrible deleting the photos, especially baby photos. It must be a "mom thing" because she said it felt like sacrilege to be deleting her child's photographs! She had to keep looking at her computer to make sure they were on it because she'd freak out if she didn't have those photos on file!

Do you know the rotten thing about it all? Mom's daughter isn't paranoid or anything but she's having trouble with a certain stalker so Mom can't even show pictures of her as a baby or even a little girl on Facebook or even HERE on the BC! Mom had to even change her profile picture on FaceBook which was a picture of her son & daughter playing outside at the Great Grandparents home. Her kids are 5+ years apart so getting pictures of them playing together are pretty rare. Mom's son is about 8 and the daughter is about 3. As cute as it was, Mom had to take it down because of safety reasons. It makes Mom mad & sad. She's proud of her kids & it's hard not to have a knot in her throat having to take things down. It's not fair other people can intrude & just become pests to a whole family. Mom put up another photo of herself & her Mom from many years ago. What makes her upset looking at it is because her daughter should be in it, too, but she had to clip her out of it!! She was only about 2 yrs. old & it was another rare photo of 3 generations of the family's females!

So, it was an unexpected assignment & Mom did it unwillingly but respectfully. Other people can have their kids on the internet with no problems. Mom loves seeing their grand babies & how they've grown over the years. Mom would like to share more but well...we have a problem that just doesn't seem to go away. And it's not right & it's not fair but that's the way it is. But we're not going to EVER like it.

I'll work on distracting Mom tomorrow. I may not have to with the nasty weather that is blowing in from down south. Suppose to be 40 to 50 mph winds tomorrow! Glad her mate got down those dead trees when he did! I think it's going to be a soup or stew day tomorrow, too! Which means lots of veggies for me!

See ya later, my friend! Hugs to all, SamIAm

  Hi Lalo
By some little miracle, we were able to log in this morning. BC simply refused to let us do it yesterday, and after several try's, pops said heck with it. It seems to be working fine this morning. SO FAR !

Come visit me, JeTTa.

  Hello Miss LaLo!
Mom's mate & a friend are outside with the chainsaws early this morning. They are cutting down the trees that died during last year's drought. Mom lost 8 big trees out front. There are some that if another strong gust or heavy ice &/or snow cake up on them, they will fall right into the road. They are taking those down for safety sake. I hope he remembers to check the ones that could hit Mom's house!

The weather outside is quite mild today. It's cloudy but that's what's holding down the heat. More rain won't be coming until Tuesday. We won't complain about rain. Not after losing 8 trees from last year's drought. Mom wants rain barrels & there's a rain barrel factory with a Waxhaw address! They make some huge rain barrels & Mom wants some. Her mate doesn't agree but that's nothing new. Still, rain barrels sure would be a smart thing for their big piece of property & the gardens that grow there. They would end up eventually paying for themselves in the long run.

Mom's thinking about what to feed those two lumberjacks for lunch. They'll probably be ready to eat a bear! The big tractor is running & dragging the trees away to the burning area but that won't happen yet until all the trees & debris are hauled back there. Then Mom's mate has to get a permit. Don't want him burning down the woods or our house then have to pay a fine or serve time for doing it illegally. Nope. They avoid that at all costs. So, it's just gathering it up together for the moment & to get those leaning towards the road away immediately before bad weather comes again. And it will come again.

Mom received 3 new bird houses for a Valentine gift this year. No, it wasn't me who gave them to her. It's to replace the bluebird boxes they have on their property for the bluebirds. These are pretty fancy but Mom has got to "fix" them up a bit. She has a wood burning tool that she's been itching to use & I do believe she's found her next project. She's got to get busy. Those bluebirds are going to be needing those nest boxes real soon! And they will be really nice when put up. We'll take pictures for you to see.

Don't work your good Pops too hard today, Miss LaLo! We'd be real happy if he brought you birdies to the Milonga just to say "hi"! That just makes our night even more special! You mustn't underestimate how much the Dallas Flock is loved, because it certainly is! Take care & hugs to all, SamIAm

  Did You Good Poppa Suffer A Fall?
I'm so sorry to hear that. Tell him most of the time it is the human ego that takes the biggest blow. Mom understands completely how he's feeling if that's what has happened. Mom started falling down when she was about 35. That's what made the doctors' start trying to find out what was happening with her joints & such. It took years for them to say it was SLE. She's fallen in front of the PTA of Waxhaw, a gathering of the Chamber of Commerce of Waxhaw members, & some at the doctors' offices & at the hospital. She has such a reputation of falling down, they all think she must be related to Gerald Ford. She understands how it must be for your dad. Walking slow but sure is her motto. It's hard sometimes to be able to walk at all!

Mom, in her younger days, was a competition swimmer & high diver. She also worked during the summers as a lifeguard at the community pool of her neighborhood in Miami. She ran track & was best at the hurdles. Each sport helped condition for the other. They were at different times of the year so that helped a lot, too. She used to be athletic but is far from that now. She likes to make jokes about it because there's nothing they can do to reverse things. She dreams of motorized wheelchairs that have been revved up & she can zip around like a mad granny at a Nascar race!

Mom uses a rollator when she can & did so when she went to the Parrot Palooza. Using it helps her be able to walk farther than without it. If she's tired, she doesn't have to look for a place to sit, it already has a seat built in it! Oh, she's tried to get me to perch on the front bar of it but I won't have anything to do with that thing. The only time I tolerate it anywhere near me is when she uses it out on the deck when we are both outside in the sun.

We hope you & all your flock, especially your good Poppa are doing well & staying warm. If I were you, I'd give him a kiss to make it all better like I did for my Mom on her wasp booboo. Yep, I preened it very softly then sat up straight & said, "ouch". Mom said, "Yes, ouchy!" Then I made a big kiss sound & said, "all better". I learned that from Mom doing it to her gran'kids when they come over. Mom thanked me & agreed that it was all better. I know it will work for your good Poppa, too!

I better close since I have some other parrot-friends to visit! This night isn't getting any younger. And quiet frankly, neither is MOM! Ha! I keep having to nudge her to keep her awake & keep typing!

See ya, later Miss LaLo! Hugs to all, SamIAm

  Wednesday Greetings!
Today Mom is getting me an earlier start on my blogs. It's about time this bird thinks!

I have a perfect story to tell you about this NEW toy I've been enjoying lately. I know Miss Jenny & you would greytly appreciate it. It's all wood pieces that are so BRIGHTLY colored. Mom has had it out on my gym when I'm inside my cage, then she hangs it just below the gym, hooked to the side so I can go look at it, which I do. I've been studying it for about 3 months now. Mom had me out yesterday & was about to hook it to the side again but stopped. She asked me as I was approaching the opened "balcony" door, "Sammy, would you like to investigate this nice wood toy today? I can put it right here at your balcony so you can chew it, if you're brave enough." Hmph. IF I'm brave enough? Sheesh. What an African Grey has to go through to be thorough in his investigation techniques. Well, Mom hangs the toy just inside my cage at the balcony exit where I love to be. I was able to swing that toy partially onto the balcony & I had a lovely time chewing & making toothpicks out of all those colors.

Mom was busy making & packing boxes while I worked on this new brightly colored toy. I guess it's because I have such light colored facial feather around my beak, but the next time Mom looks at me, I look like I've be "pyschodelified" I had colors all OVER my beak & nares, streaks of colors that almost looked like I was painted in "war paint"! Mom wanted to help me get it off with a paper towel but I consider those things EVIL! That's what Mom will dry my cage off with & I have to run around trying to rip those things to shreds. NO WAY am I allowing THAT to be rubbed on my face! She must be a crazy Momma to think I'd go for THAT!

Mom then decided I was so cute she had to take a picture! WHAT?
Another deadly enemy she tries to subject me to??!! No way was I going to have anything to do with that so every time she pointed the camera at me, I'd turn my back to her. She took about 20 pictures but they're all of my back & my turned head. No pictures to show I have colored myself into punk fashion. Mom just laughed at me & told me I won, she wouldn't bother me anymore, just enjoy myself with my new toy. Which I did by the way & had a marvelous day to boot!

I hope I have another marvelous day & hope you do, too. Big hugs to all, SamIAm
