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~Happy Easter dear friends...

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....

  Hey Miss Lalo! Don't You Have The Cutest EARS!!
You'd be greyt on that Cadbury commercial! I know you'd be able to 'cluck' just LIKE a chicken! At least, that's what they make that llama, lion, & Persian cat do. You'd be better than that bunny any day! Of course, if you start 'clucking' I would be hard pressed not to start yelling out....."CHICKEN BUTT". I know. I just can't help myself.

Mom's son has been hired!! WOOOHOOOO!! There's a big celebration for tomorrow afternoon which is when Mom & her mate go over there to bring dinner. Tomorrow's dinner will have dessert with it...brownies & ice-cream. He won't start until April 6th but at least there is an end date to all this cooking! Of course, I have been supervising & helping with tasting this & that. Mom was able to buy some strawberries & I've been having those just to make sure they taste right. I do like telling everyone how "red, red, red" they are. I just say it three times over & over again. Mom looks at me strangely & asks why I say red three times for the strawberries & not other things that I say are "red". There is only one word for red then. Something just inspires me to say, "red, red, red". Mom will probably figure out why I do that. It may just to amuse myself. I do like a nice rhyme & play with words all the time. Most of the time I do that like in a whisper, like I'm practicing or something. Oh, well. It shall remain a mystery for the present time.

Hope you're staying warm. It's been unseasonably warm here for the past week or so. Things have started blooming & now a freeze will happen tonight. Mom's been so worried about her peach tree. It's really growing well & was filled with pink blossoms. She tried to talk her mate in helping her throw 2 queen sized sheets over it & attached them to each other & to the tree to give it a little protection from the freeze. He wouldn't have anything to do with that & so it stands out there with all it's blooms waiting for them to all turn to brown by tomorrow. What a shame. That means all the huge orchards with peach blossoms will be doing the same thing. Probably won't be too many peaches to freeze this year. Phooey!

Well, hope you are all doing well. Mom's had some ups & downs but has gotten much better. She needs some rest after the major cook-a-thon she's been doing for 2 households. Hugs to all, SamIAm

Way t'go, Girl — ridin' in the Derby! That's gonna be greyt!!!! You're gonna do awesome, I already know it. A quick, lithe girly~bird like you is gonna fly like the wind on the back of that Friesan Fire. I had a look at that handsome horse over at Derby Farms and I'm tellin' ya, Lalo, you've got a fast one there. I can see it in his eyes. He wants t'GO!

So, what else is new with you these days? I'm sure you've been through about a thousand boxes since winter started. Bet Dad's had t'sweep up a whole lot of cardboard from around your cage! I can tell you and Art are related... that guy mows through boxes like a twister in a trailer park. Even with a beak as big as mine parts don't fly that fast. A new Harrison's box just arrived so there's another project waiting for the ArtMeister. At the moment though, Kelly's standing on the box putting a bit of artwork around the edge. Hope Arthur don't mind a "used" box.

Well Little Miss Jockey Girl, keep yourself safe, healthy and happy, and thanks for comin' by t'tell me about your upcoming race plans. You know I'll be there t'cheer you on.

Hug for this Big Guy??

  Good Evening Miss Lalo!
What a day I’ve had today! At first the weather was all cloudy & gloomy but just after lunchtime the clouds parted & the sun came streaming down & warmed up everything! Nice sunshine & nice temperatures. Mom took me out on the deck for 30 minutes & I had such a greyt time calling to all the scruffy birds. Mom put out some seed for them since the dangerous duo were asleep upstairs in the house. I got to have some nuts, too, an almond & a cashew!! I was very happy chomping away while the scruffy birds enjoyed their meal. Mom put out some peanuts & the bluejays had a fight over who was going to get the most of those!! Before we were out there very long, the squirrels could see the birds flying away with great big peanuts in the shell, they came looking for a handout, too! Mom couldn’t help herself & set some peanuts out for the squirrels too, but, very far away from the house. She gave them the peanuts after I was pushed back inside. I honestly think I could have stayed out longer had those little beggars hadn’t put the guilt trip on Mom. Oh, well, there will be more outside times in the near future. I think there is still more cold weather to come but it was nice that we got one day we could enjoy outside! The sunshine was the best treat we’ve had in a long time!

Hope all are doing well at your home. I hope you, too, will get some nice warm sunshine where you live soon! Hugs to all, SamIAm

  Mom's Goin' To Look Up That Group of Irish Rovers
.....who do that Unicorn song. When Mom first heard it, it was on the TV. Her parents & older brothers liked watching a show called "Hoot Nanny" and they would have many folksingers on who'd do old songs. The group she heard sing "Unicorn" was the Kingston Trio. Another duo she remembers well was the Smothers Brothers. She thought they were so very funny & yet could really play well the guitar & banjo & yep, sing, too. She was just a little girl in elementary school then.

Have you ever heard the song about the M.T.A where the guy gets stuck riding forever under the streets of Boston, unable to get off of the subway? It's rather funny & Mom can remember her dad laughing & laughing so hard at it. Mom just found it on YouTube & who should be listed with them? The Irish Rovers doing the song, "Drunken Sailor". That's a song Mom's dad would have them sing when they were on vacation driving all over the USA. I think he did that to help him stay awake. 4 kids can be entertaining if brought up right! My birdsonal opinion is that they sounded like a bunch of crows trying to sing! Yep. I said it & I meant it too.

Say "hello" to your good Papa & Miss Jenny & ZiggMan for me. Hugs to all, SamIAm

  Hello Miss Lalo!
I've come to share a little blarney with ya! One I think you'll enjoy! Sam starts an old record on a phonograph & pushes his tall silk green hat back on his head so he can see.....

Unicorn

A long time ago when the Earth was green,
There was more kinds of animals then you've ever seen.
And they'd run around free while the world was being born.
The loveliest of all was the Unicorn!

There was green alligators and long necked geese,
Hump back camels and chimpanzees.
Cats and rats and elephants but sure a you're born,
The loveliest of all was the Unicorn!

But the Lord seen some sinnin' and it caused him pain.
He says, "Stand back, I'm gonna make it rain.
So hey, Brother Noah, I'll tell you what to do.
Go and build me a floating zoo."

"You'll take two alligators and a couple of geese,
Two hump back camels and two chimpanzees.
Two cats, two rats, two elephants but as sure as you're born,
Noah, don't you forget my unicorns!"

Well, Noah looked out through the drivin' rain,
But the unicorns was hidin'-playin' silly games.
They were kickin' and a-splashin' while the rain was pourin',
Oh them foolish unicorns.

"So you take two alligators and a couple of geese,
Two hump back camels and two chimpanzees.
Two cats, two rats, two elephants but as sure as you're born,
Noah, don't you forget my unicorns."

And the the ark started movin' and it drifted with the tide,
And the unicorns looked up from the rock and cried.
And the water came up and sort of floated them away,
That's why you've never seen a unicorn to this day.

You'll see a lot of alligators and a whole mess of geese,
You'll see hump back camels and chimpanzees.
You'll see cats and rats and elephants but as sure as you're born,
You're never gonna see no unicorn.

Sam bows while removing his Irish hat & smiles. Sorry Mom's been away so long. Times she has tried to get on the BC things wouldn't work & she just had not time for the frustration. I wish it would work better.

Hugs to all, SamIAm

  Hey Lalo, ONLY the strong survive.
Did you know, that we live in a junk world?

Can opener, 20 Bucks, and if your lucky it last's about a year. Toss it.

Toaster, 50 bucks, maybe two years, Toss it.

Microwave, couple hundred bucks, 3 to 4 year life span. Toss it

TV's. Prices to a few thousand, and 4 years, give or take. Toss it.

Cell phones, usually last 18 months. But you have a 2 years contract. So the last six months you can use two tin cans with a string.

No wonder the land fills are filling up. They just don't make things like they did back in the day.

  Hello Miss Lalo!
I tried to post some pictures to the BC of the new stuff that's hanging around in my cage but it keep showing up sideways & upside down. It's crazy because the pictures are right side up on Mom's phone & on her computer. We thought maybe it was because the BC went wonky because of the timing of her attempts was the day before all that wonkiness hit. We thought maybe once things simmered down around here, they would post like they usually do. Unfortunately, it wouldn't work. Mom has an idea to take those pictures over to pizap & frame them or something & maybe they will post like that. We're going to give that a try. I want everybirdy to see how frightening all that new stuff truly is. Be prepared to fluff!

Did you happen to receive an e-card from my Mom? It happens to be from BOTH of us but we noticed that your good Poppa doesn't seem to pick them up or open them? Is it because they won't work on his computer? Or maybe they can't get by your Wall of Protection & Destruction to Evil Doers laser beam. I wish we had one of those!

Did you get any Valentines? I know a few males out there that are dying to get a date with you but a certain big sister chases them off! Heehee! She has her Alfie & I guess she doesn't want to have to look out for you while she's so distracted. I do hope all at your very cold home had a great Valentine's Day filled with lots of love. It had to be great! You're the Valentine Queen! And a very good looking one, at that!

I'm going to be scarred for a long time because of this.

Mom says I will like it & that there are treats inside if I'd only go find them. I know what's inside. It's hideous!! With eight eyeballs! Three beaks! AND FANGS, too! I can hear it hissing at night when it thinks Mom is asleep.

Well, those cinnamon apples & cornbread were really yummy & I stood on my perch to eat all of them. When I realized what I was doing, I looked over my shoulder & climbed as fast as I could back to my top perch. Must keep up the act for sympathy, ya know? Heh. Heh. Hugs to all, SamIAm

  Hello Miss Lalo!
Well, Mom is getting that old timers disease. Her brain is just squishy with wrong information. She forgot when my hatchday was!! She thought it was today! I know it's been squishy because she has been cooking up meals & going to get groceries to tide over her son's home since he lost his job. If it's lost, I say let it stay LOST! It was a crappy place to work for anyway. They sure don't know how to treat their employees. I birdsonally think they let him go because of the 'hold-up' but waited until after the Christmas rush to throw him to the curb. It was a miracle the guy held it together day in & day out. I bet they're afraid they could be sued. They should be. In case Mom forgot to type to you, her son was held up in his store the week of Thanksgiving one night when he was closing up. The guy kept saying for him to give him the tape. Mom's son kept telling him there is NO TAPE! It's live! There's nothing I can do to make it stop recording. The recording devise isn't here in the store. The crook didn't believe him & pushed him to the back of the store where Mom's son heard him click back the trigger of that gun. He thought he was going to die right then. The idiot tore up the back room looking for the "tape recorder" then ran out after stealing the days money. A father & son came in right after the guy ran out. They had witnessed everything except what happened in the back room. They thought he was going to kill Mom's son, too.

Anyway, I have had Mom to myself & what did she go & do? She spent a whole day destroying my cage!! Everything (well, most everything) was cast out into the cold dark night! All this NEW, EVIL stuff came in! She looked so happy & pleased with herself & me? I just stared blankly past everything. I wouldn't look at it. It became crystal clear that I could no longer eat at my food bowl or drink from my water bowl ever again. My back was to all that NEW STUFF & I could feel it's cold, murderous eyes upon me! It's wretched breath huffing & puffing in excitement to rip my feathers off of me! It was terrifying!

I stayed petrified for 4 solid days. Mom was afraid she was going to find me at the bottom of the cage from starvation & dehydration. She'd coax me down with some fresh grapes to my feeding dishes. I'd peep for her to feed me at my top perch but she wouldn't budge. So, I climbed upside down on the roof of my cage. I then headed head first down to my bowls where I ate the grapes & drink a sip of water. Don't tell, but I was doing that for awhile before Mom caught me. I wanted her to feel very guilty for what she had done & I wanted her to worry she was starving me. She had to praise me for being "brave" when she caught me doing that, so I started doing that in front of her only when she'd be in the room with me. I want her to take all this NEW STUFF away but I have a feeling it's not going anywhere. It hasn't been "ritualized" properly. I'm going to be scarred for a long t

I found myself in a pub in Cork. A group of American tourists came in.

One of the Americans said, in a loud voice, "I hear you Irish think you are great drinkers.

I bet 5,000 euros that no-one here can drink 30 pints of Guinness in 30 minutes."

The bar was silent, the American noticed one Irishman leaving, no-one took up the bet.

40 minutes later the Irishman who left returned and said "Hey Yank, is your wee bet still on?"

"Sure" said the American, "30 pints in 30 minutes for a bet of 5,000 euros."

"Grand, " replied the Irishman, "so pour the pints and start the clock."

It was very close but the last drop was consumed with 2 seconds to spare.

"OK Yank, pay up." said the Irishman..

"I'm happy to pay, here's your money" said the American.

"But tell me, when I first offered the wager I saw you leave. Where did you go?'

The Irishman replied, "Well sir, 5,000 euros is a lot of money to a man like me, so I went to the pub across the road to see if I could do it." R T
