  Oh yeah sure Cookie I think you can fit in
Momma Ruthies bag when she goes to the layers.

But you might be a bit squished as she got a lotta junk in there ! :(

You might be better off in her work bag but you might be tossed around a bit if that's okay with you?

She's waiting for the Attirney to call back to set up an appointment as this was a long weekend so he'll probably call next week. Things hafta be filed before mom goes back to midnight shift plus mom doesn't wanna go back to midnight shift.

Well lets not go there as mom doesn't like to talk about it.

I'll keep you posted of As The Basement Turns.....

Love from above,

Your forever Angel Sallykins

  Day 1--Welcome to Cape Breton Island part 1
Hello everybirdie, my name is Angel Girl. I am a member of the SKY Flock, and this month's BOTM candidate. I would like to take this first day to introduce myself a little bit, and outline our month long trip to beautiful Cape Breton Island, Nova, Scotia, Canada.
I arrived at the Sky flock several years ago when my new owner became too afraid of me to keep me. I had lived with my first owner for the first five years of my life. I was born to his father's flock in the Barrie, Ontario area. I was a much loved, and pampered pet, who enjoyed the best of food, and attention. I even have a custom made large cage. When the relationship between my daddy and mommy fell apart I was posted for sale on the internet and ended up in Peterborough, Ontario,.
Why my new owner ever got me will forever be a mystery, but was, in part motivated by my Momma Deb telling her that she had wanted an African Grey for many years and was considering a clutch of Cameroons. My new owner had the very best of intentions, but lacked Parrot handling skills and experience. She was afraid of me, and when I made an escape from my cage, was unable to get me home again, and resorted to using a broom to "herd" me along. I came to hate the broom, as I was daily allowed out, but broomed back to my cage. Eventually I began to attack the broom, and the one holding it aggressively, biting and screaming my displeasure. After several months of war, my owner contacted my Momma Deb and asked her if she would take me in. My Momma Deb was very happy to go get me. She found me cowering in the back of the cage, locked in the back bedroom. I was quickly "caught up" with a towel and placed into a carrier. My cage and I were loaded up, and I was off to my new forever home.
It took a lot of work to get to the place were I trusted Momma Deb. She endured many hard bites, and one attack on that broom she was using to clean the floor. Since Momma Deb didn't give-up, I decided that I would trust her, and have since become Momma's special Girl. I have an extensive vocabulary of words, and sound effects, and I love singing my many songs. Enough about me.
This month we will be exploring Cape Breton Island, along the Cabot Trail by horse-back. IF any-birdie does not have a horse from CHUEY's BOTM Cattle Drive please let me know and we will round up one for you. We will be camping outdoors, enjoying many fun adventures, taking part in some Celtic festivals and games, and maybe even end up sparkled as my Fister Little Angel and Dixie Adler joy us for the trip. Pack up your camping gear, and ready to ride.
See everyone tomorrow as we take flight to Cape Breton. (SKY has transported our horses there by trailer).
Hugs and love

  Hi Cookie,

How are you, Buddy? It's Apache! Come on down if you want "Too" and enjoy the Pool with us. Snowflake & Jedi are leaving tomorrow and we won't see them now until our Wedding Day which will be here before you know it. Your Mom did a great job with the pictures, we all love them. But do you think she could just do one more picture for us? We would love to have one with us Grooms, Brides and my Bestest Man, Cookie and our beautiful Sister and Maid of Honor, Oz. IF Aunt Mary can do that one, it would really be so special for us. But IF she can't, we really do understand. We already have so much more than we could or should ask for. IF it wasn't for your Mom Buddy, we wouldn't have any cause our Mommy can't do it. Anyway, if you want to fly down well come on down and spend a few days. I know last night Mom said it was raining Cats & Dogs! Now I never saw Cats & Dogs fall out of the sky, did you Cookie?? Okay, here's a vote for my Bestest Man! Bye and hope to see you soon.


Come visit me, Parker, Silver, APACHE IS SO HAPPY SNOWFLAKE SAID YES ON 04/27/14, Oz & Cheyenne said YES to her Jedi 5/3/14.

  Message from QUEEN CHUEY
Howdy everybirdy, Queen Chuey here. I want to thank you all once more for riding the Trail with me. I had lots of fun and adventure this past month. I have a few plans for this upcoming month of September in the Castle. Seeing how well you all have mastered the art of horse riding,roping and the like, I think it only right to hold a RODEO at the Castle. The day and time will be posted both on the Calendar page and my own, also on my cousin ANGEL GIRLS PAGE.

Angel Girl is our September BOTM candidate and I know that you all will enjoy the month with her on Cape Breton Island. This adventuresome month will be narrated in true SKY FLOCK style and humor. It promises to be a fun, informative adventure. I must warn you though,that LITTLE ANGEL and her Hus-bird DIXIE will be joining you , so be prepared for some "SPARKLY" times head. ANGEL GIRL'S page #--224627.
Remember to give those horses some extra oats and molasses, they sure deserve it. Now, if I can only get these cowbird boots off, I'm gonna relax by the pool for a spell. Then enjoy some fine vittles in the Banquet Hall.
Hugs and kisses
Queen Trail Boss Chuey

  Hi Cookie
It's Blue and Jewel.
Mom decided to boil the smoked turkey bones yesterday. Wow, did the kitchen ever smell good! She's going to freeze the stock so she can make turkey soup when and if the cold weather ever hits us. She also made more Pico Di Gillo. It was such a hit the last time that she tried it again. And, the longer it sits, the better it gets.
Dad took advantage if mom working in the kitchen and ran the Rug Doctor over the bedroom carpet with just hot water. He thinks he got all the shampoo out of the carpet so it won't be like walking on dried straw.
Today is Labor Day. But dad says there is no way he's going into labor.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 89 and a low of 64.
Hope your day is fun.
Blue and Jewel

  Hi Cookie... it's Floopus here
I won a juke box. Yippee! I was a little down, when I came 4th, but somebirdy had to do it. I guess, being the first heat, it saddened me because Porky and I practiced so hard. I am a big bird and weigh more than the smaller birds, and I guess that slowed Porky down a bit. I felt better after seeing I was not the only 4th bird. TiPaul said I should try my luck with the music thing because mom always has music on, and I sing along. We will have to put the juke box in the bird room, so when I tell Marley to dance, she will have her choice of real music in the room now. Floop gives Cookie a hug and says thank you again. I better fly... I need to supervise what Mom is doing today.

  Hi, Cookie
Pearl is still savoring his 1st place and Silver his honorable mention in the pie eating. Never thought we'd do so well, but those pies were awesomely good. Lizzie sure outdid herself.

Still summer here. This week has been warmer than it's been for weeks. Not really humid so the mid 80s (or higher in other areas) doesn't feel too bad. Still, the a/c is on to keep it cool inside.

School doesn't start until Thur? Wow! Kids here have been back since Aug 18th!

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

Congrats again on the win at the fair. Yes, it was a good Milonga ... good food, fun and music!
I sure hope we get 80 degrees someday this week. Oh no, it's school time for your mom. That sure went fast!
I think we have a good 15 moms for the PP so far. Should be fun.
It was a lazy, cool and cloudy day (71 degrees) with some rain. I took advantage and had a very long nap. Then, I was ready to go crazy and drive mom nuts ... hehehehe. That was my plan and it worked!

That was an awesome time last night, and sure am happy you won the race, too! That was so much fun to watch! I sure had a great time with the pie eating. Must admit my crop is still full from all that great food!

It was a nice day with Mom, and I am looking forward to having her home tomorrow. She is going to have to go out for some groceries that she could not get at Wally World yesterday. But other than that, she is home with me, and will have a great day!

  Hi Cookie
First of all we all want to congratulate you on being the winner in the piggie races last night!You and Petunia did a fantastic job and worked hard!We are so proud of you both!
I just can't believe that summer is nearly gone already and that Mama Mary has to go back to school again,it seems like she just got out for the summer!Its just not fair,and my Mom knows how she must feel about having to go back so soon again!We barely had a summer and already its gone!
It was a drab dull kind of a day here very cloudy and no sunshine at all and looking like it was going to rain any minute.It was 75 degrees and kind of humid with the wind blowing around.Both skin sibs couldn't wait to come over for the BBQ and wanted to make sure they didn't miss it,so skin bro came right on time as Mom had started putting the food on the grill and skin sis came even earlier.Mom got us all outside to join in the BBQ and we got a taste of some chicken burger and a little hamburger.Mom put hamburgers,hot dogs,chipotle chicken sausages and chicken breasts on the grill!Mom will have the chicken breasts for tomorrow nights dinner so she doesn't have to do anything but heat them up and throw in some veggies and the wild rice mixture she made.Then Mom served the pumpkin squares she made last night with whipped cream for dessert.We all sat out in the front yard watching all the wild birds coming and going and splashing in the bird bath!The hummingbird came around and the only one to see it was skin bro.Mom spent the morning trying to deep clean our cages and vacuuming the floors before everyone came over.We are so happy that Mom will be home all day with us tomorrow and won't have to leave the house for anything!
It looks like we'll be getting your weather here tonight or tomorrow!My dad got to have the day off today and tomorrow we'll all be together so even if we get those storms they're talking about Mom doesn't mind as long as she doesn't have to go anywhere!Nana is so upset with those wild turkeys tearing up her veggie garden and wreaking havoc everywhere,poor Nana,she worked so hard on her garden and those turkeys tore everything up and ruined her the veggies that were coming up!She's ready to make them for Thanksgiving dinner!
It looks like both of us will be getting some Me time in tomorrow!I'll get to sleep in my sleeping box late tonight while Mom falls asleep on the couch watching tv with my dad and Dixie snuggling together!It sounds like you and Poppa Rich are going to have lots of fun cutting some things up there!
Last night was so much fun!Kiddo,Taz,RaneBeau and SamIAm outdid themselves as usual!That food was just sooo incredible and sooo beak watering good!We loved being there with you soo much!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses to everyone there from everyone here,Loving you always and forever,Kallie&flock,Mom,dad,Nana and Trixie II

Congratulations on winning the pig race with Petunia...great job!!
Last night was another grand night at the milonga and so thankful for all that make this event happen for all of us. All the events were so much fun. Towards the end we had a few problems with the BC loading so that is when Suzi and I left to play some games, ride some rides and eat at the fair LOL Glad it worked well for all the events before that though for us. “If your alone, I’ll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I’ll be your shoulder. If you want a hug I’ll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I’ll be your smile. But anytime you need a friend, I’ll just be me.

Hi Cookie,
Yes, Daddy is supposed to be on the antibiotics until Oct. 3rd, but his insurance for the rehab center runs out on Sept. 25th. Mommy and Daddy can't pay for these very expensive antibiotics themselves. So that will be the end of them, and it's ok with the doctor. There has to be a minimum of 60 days where he hasn't been in either a nursing facility or acute care setting (hospital) for his 100 days to re-set. As you well know, he's been in and out of these places non-stop ever since Jan.17th. So his days haven't re-set. After he comes home, Mommy hope that she can keep him out of the hospital for at least 60 days! It doesn't re-set for the hospital, just for nursing and rehab, but they count the hospital days against him if he has to go to rehab. I know it's confusing, but your Mom will learn all about it when she and your Dad go on Medicare.

Daddy came home yesterday and today, and wants to come home again tomorrow. It makes him happy, so Mommy makes the trips. She wants so much for Daddy to stop being depressed.
Love and Big Hugs from Your Friend, Little Lucy♥

  Hi Cookie
Well, I do believe everybirdy had fun at the Milonga County Fair last night. The pig races were very eggciting congrats Cookie and Petunia), the pie eating contest was pretty darned funny (congrats Pearl and Sky...really?) and the music was Sam and the Scruffy Bird's Band usual best. And the food!! 'Nuff said. And a new feature this year was Falco's ring toss which was very popular.

And today is the final day of Chuey's trail ride. I sure have had a wonderful time on this greyt birdy adventure, but don't forget to get on over to her page one last time for that final vote of the month.

As for myself, I am being good and bad. I have refused to get into that tiny carrier for my sunbath two days in a row now, but that thing is just too darned small. Mom will be allowed to pick up the larger carrier on Wednesday, and it's starting to look like that will be my next sun bath. However I'm still being good while she is blogging, and I am sitting on her leg right now as she types for me. That's a whole week! And I was able to attend the milonga in person last night, when I usually get consigned to my room after just a few minutes. Mom is really hoping this behavior keeps up for a while or maybe even forever! (She's dreaming, of course.)

  Day 31--The final Trail to Wyoming
Well, you can bet we sure had a merry time watchin' Bart, and his rustlers tryin' to get that mess off their feathers and cowboy outfits. The harder they tried, the worse mess they got themselves into. Jenny-Lynn just stood there, wings on her hips, laughin' so hard I wondered she didn't fall over. We came outta the brush and from behind them rocks to enjoy the show. Bart was cawin' and cussin' like a crow, but the more he tried, the worse it got. His wings got to stickin to his cowboy hat, then he fell again onto them ants and he was rollin like a dog with fleas.
"Ain't ya gonna help me Jenny-Lynn?" Bart pleaded as he tried in vain to get his wings off his head.
"Nah, I'm kinda enjoyin the show myself." JL sat down on a boulder and watched. The others gave up their fightin' and tryin and just stood their, sticky glop droppin' off in puddles onto their boots.
"Bart, we give up! You can try to take them cows ya gotta mind to, but we quit!" Twitch turned and looked at us, "you can shoot us if ya wanta, but we don't want your herd no more."
"You get, don't let us be seein' any sign of ya ever agin, or we'll be hangin from a rope" I finish and looked at them, grinning widely. "Now vamoose" It took but a few seconds before they began to wobble, and stumble off down the Trail, I had no doubt we'd seen the last of them. "Now Bart, what ya gotta say for yourself. You know the law of the West is hangin' but I don't have no heart for the likes of that. Instead you'll work for Lizzie, do all the dish washin, and ever she has a problem with ya, she's free to toast ya." Bart looked sadly at the mess he was in, and silently nodded his agreement. After much scrubbin in the river he came up as clean as a scoundrel like him could be. He worked quietly and nervously for Lizzie all the way to Wyoming where we cut him loose hopin' he'd learned his lesson. I'm a proud Trail Boss at how well you all learned to rope and ride, herd, and protect the herd of Long-horned Cattle all the way from Texas to Wyoming. You shot, and fought like the very best of them seasoned cow-punchers, ya ought be real proud of yourselves.
At this time I wish to thank each and everyone of you for your awesome support, both by voting daily and your encouraging words. I truly hope you all enjoyed your month long adventure on the Western Trail, and perhaps came away with a little bit of historical information too.
A very special thank you goes out to Momma Deb of the SKY FLOCK for all her photo editing, and assistance, without which I would never have been able to write such an eggciting, and fun adventure. Momma Deb is a real story-teller, and I appreciate her hard work, input and help.
Now, with my last blog posted I am heading back home for a short visit with my own Momma. I know she missed me while we rode the Trail, forged the River and fought the bad-birds. I have missed my hus-bird Mikey D too.
with love and hugs
Trail Boss Chuey

Once again, the county fair milonga was fantastic! We all had a great time. My booth made a ton of cash, we gave out lots of prizes, too. Cash goes to birdie rescues, as we all know, and the leftover prizes will go there too.
Willie and Piglet had a lot of fun in the races, and he assured her she is a winner and a wonderful piggie. Peppino had peach pie all over himself and had fun in the pie contest, too. Congrats to Pearl for winning that one!
A huge thank you to Kiddo, Ranebeau, Taz, and SamIAm for making the night one to be remembered forever! The pictures helped to make the night complete.
Hope you are having better weather than we are today. It's cool and raining really hard here. We're hoping tomorrow brings some sunshine for the last day at the pool. They changed their late night swim and annual bonfire to last night, because of the predicted weather today, it was a fine idea. Anyway, I hope it's sunny and warm and a lovely day full of cuddles where you are! Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Kaji, TiPaul, and Sky for 10k!, Peppino, Divo, welcoming his old buddy Tooth home & Falco, fly free, Tooth.

  Cookie, congratulations
to you and Petunia on a great race. You rode Petunia so well, you deserved the win.

Glad to hear that your vacation was a good one but sorry to hear that you felt a little queasy on the way home. Has your mom tried giving you a little bit of ginger to help your tummy.

It was so much fun tonight at the Milonga. I loved watching the pie eating contest, couldn't believe that little Pearl could eat all that pie so fast. I am amazed that no birdie got

It was an okay day today, it didn't get very warm, in the mid 70s but the wind started to blow so hard that the trees were bending. Mom is hoping that it is nice tomorrow as she wants to get out and prune her roses.

Your long lost friend, Chloe

  Hi Cookie
Mom is cat sitting(hope she sits HARD!) and using her friend's laptop. It is hard cause this one doesn't have all the programs mom's does. We probably will miss the milonga, BUT the friend is letting mom and the skinsibs use their "on demand" for seeing a couple shows they have missed.
In the meantime, the kitties get her attention, *sigh* Hope your last summer weekend gets YOU lots of attention.

Come visit me, Polly; V4 CHUEY #245908 BOTM; Red White Blue & Zippy; V4 CHUEY #245908 BOTM Fireworks time.

  Hi Cookie
Airport is open early today! You know what mom said to us before she l;eft for work? (Josh is out of his cage as well) She said "now Moggie, do not fly into Josh's mouth while you are out today!" dad heard this and laughed so hard! Like I would even entertain going near Birdzilla! That why I land on the pediment over the door near his cage, heheehehh! We have a family bbq tomorrow so may not make it to the fair. dad went food shopping with mom on Tuesday, so the cupboard is filled with all sorts of snack, chips and dip, salsa and cracker jack! I even spotted some cheese danish on the counter! bring your appetite! Love and winghugs, Moggie

  Hey Cookie! I'm BAACCKK! I Hope Not Like
...a bad penny! Thanks for all the nice cards, calls, prayers & wellness thoughts for my Mom. She thought she'd never shake that lupus/RA flare. It didn't help at all because of that infected tooth. Any infection or illness, she's to stop taking the RA medicine. She's to leave it out of her medication taking until 2 weeks after the antibiotic in finished. That ended up being 3 weeks of no medicine to keep that RA in check. Once she started it up again, that's when she thought she should be getting better, instead she felt worse. That's because that kind of medicine has to "build up" to be effective in warding off the RA symptoms. She told me her hair even hurt! She couldn't even get out of bed some days. But she would try everyday. When she really felt terrible it was because her fever was so high. It would swing back & forth between 101 & 102. She had called her doctor about that & he was wondering if the tooth problem had come back. So, she had to be run up to the dentist's office just to rule that out. Thank goodness, it was all okay. Mom sure didn't want anymore drilling for China going on in her mouth again. It was just healing up nicely. Anyway, Mom has heard that somethings that are just the run of the mill everyday things that humans will go through, that it might be a bit harder for her because of her illnesses. This is the first significant trouncing she has taken from dental work. Her immune system is run by the 3 Stooges & she's quite sure of it! Things it's suppose to do, it does the opposite of it or goes overboard doing too much. Mom's glad it's over with & is now trying to "catch up". She went to her email & it was a thousand plus emails in there. She almost went back to bed seeing that many! I had to coax her out with me saying cutie things to her like, "come have a birdy day!" and also, "I want some toast!" I thought expressing my needs would kick start the "Mom instinct" in her to help her along. It's worked some.

Well, I think I better ask for some "treats" before it gets too close to dinner time.

Can't wait for this Saturday! Piggy races are going to be so awesome! Good luck to you & Petunia!
