  Heya, Cookie!
Oh ya, when Mom and I read what your Mom had to analyze, our eyes glazed over. Anything with numbers or test scores...oh dear! She gets this look on her face, and her eyes just glaze over!!! Or she would be falling asleep!

Mom is feeling a bit better today after really getting some good zzzz's last night. Throat is not as sore, which is good. She had enough energy to go over to Kim's and take her shopping. It was a nice afternoon out. I was so happy when she came home, and bringing me some sugar snap peas was pretty nice, too. (They went to a different Meijer's today, so now they have been to 3 out of the 4 in our you the idea that Mom likes Meijer's a lot).

Damp and cooler here. This weekend is supposed to be hot and humid, with high dew points. But it means I go to the Farmer's Market with Mom tomorrow. Gotta go when it is nice out, cuz soon it won't be.

Wing hugs coming your way!

We're Back!!! We all had a wonderful time traveling to meet The Stark flock and Aunt Tanya and Uncle Steve.Mom and Dad got us all set up in our traveling cages and got us in the backseat of dad's car and loaded all the luggage and all our things and we all took off for the road.It was a nice warm sunny day and we were on the road by 7:30am and dad made sure we had our favorite radio station to listen to all the way which kept us quiet and happy.A few hours into the trip,my dad was getting sore and hungry so we all stopped off at a McDonald's and dad went in to get something to eat and brought it back out to the car so he could stay with Mom and us.Mom changed our papers and gave us a little snack and then we were on our way again.We had a few more rest stops so dad could stretch his legs and Mom made sure we were all okay with enough to eat and drink and we finally made it to Aunt Tanya's and Uncle Steve's by late afternoon on Saturday.We had such wonderful lodgings in Hotel Conurefornia and got to meet Angel and Aunt Jeanne.Angel is a pineapple GCC who looks just like Candida.It was so much fun to finally get to sit out in the sunshine on the deck while our parronts unloaded the car and talk to everyone.Sunday we got to meet Aunt Mary,Aunt Janet and Uncle Bill and we had a BBQ and everyone got to take pictures and enjoy each others company.It was so much fun to meet Carter,Kookie,Charlie,Baldrick,Teal'c,Miranda,CUBi- rd,Moggie,Blue,Doo Diligence,Joshua and Elvis!We thought we were going to go all the way and visit Aunt Arlene,Falco,Pino and Willie,but by Monday morning skin sis called and was upset because Nana was in such pain and was near tears the pain was so bad.And skin sis herself wasn't feeling well.Her blood test came back with no results and the MRI didn't show exactly where the tear in her knee was so she had to undergo another imaging.She has another appointment next week to see the doctor.Skin sis was upset because she didn't know what to do for Nana and wanted Mom to come home as she was so worried about Nana.Mom kept trying to settle things long distance but it didn't work out so we all wound up having to go home early.Mom had to call Aunt Arlene to let her know that we wouldn't be able to come see her and Aunt Jinky and Aunt Carol.We all felt bad as we were looking forward to this trip.So Mom packed up everything and by Tuesday morning we were all back in the car and headed for home.We were all disappointed to have cut our trip short.When we all got home,Mom got us in our cages and took straight off for Nana's and has been in and out for most of the week.She went back today to help with things and hopefully the dr. will find a cancellation so Nana won't have to wait til Wednesday to get in to see him.We all have missed everyone so much!Please forgive the c/p tonight but Mom is so exhausted and hopes to get some sleep early tonight!We should be back on BC tomorrow sometime if Mom can stay home and Nana is doing better by then.I have

Mom got the Christmas catalog in the mail from some other SU person and glad she did cause the one mom usually buys from still hasnt passed hers out....grrrrrr.
Mom did a few things here this morning and then we went out for my sunbath which felt really good. Mom had to water her plants out on the porch and clean the windows out front on the porch. The flies make a mess on the white parts of the window. Mom thinks the flies are worse here cause of the cows across the road at the farm but we do enjoy watching them too and the windows need cleaning anyway…just not this often LOL. Mom and I came in and then mom left to get her feathers trimmed but dad was home so I was out of my condo with the door open if I wanted to be. “A friend like you is like a four leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Finish their popsicles they are kind of sticky so they decide a few more rides down the awesome giant slip and slide cant hurt.Then they can get to work on making campaign posters.
Spice up meals with hot sauce. Not only will that get you drinking more water... But the capsaicin in the peppers has been shown to temporarily boost your heart rate. And the faster our heart beats, the more calories we burn – it’s that simple. In fact, one study found that people who included chili peppers in their meals saw their metabolism increase a whopping 30%!

Sorry did not get to blog yesterday..Mom & Dad were Doctered Out when they got home...Both had vascular studies...Mom's turned out good.Doctor was pleased with the way the stents are working and he told her the leg will not get the disease some people get after having a blood clot..That is where the leg will stay swollen the rest of your life..Her BP was still high due to anxiety and stress from worrying..So he changed her BP meds and prescribed Xanax for the anxiety...But told her only to take it when not able to get it under control..It is very addicting to make it a daily pill to take..Dad his study results were also good but he is being tested for spinal stenosis...All symptoms lean that way..Now for you my friend...Mom is all yours until after Labor Day..Have fun with her and enjoy...Those baths are quite awesome especially since it is so warm...Have a great Friday...Pecked a V4U..Many birdie wing hugs to you my dear friend...Love you buddy, Stormy :o)

Hi Cookie,
I made it! I made it! I finally made 5K! and Momma didn't even see it until 5015! Thanks for all your help. You're a wonderful friend.

Mommy borrowed skin sis's laptop to check in on BC for me. Mommy's having a wonderful time in CO. She hasn't been to CO for two years because of Daddy being sick and all. The weather there has been pretty nice. It rained just a little bit yesterday and the cloudiness is welcomed because it keeps the high heat away. Mommy went to great-granddaughter, Ella's 4th birthday party Wed. night. It was so much fun for Ella and everyone else had a great time, too! She'll be home sometime next week.
Love from your friend Little Miss Lucy♥

  Hi Cookie
Well, just hung up on the phone with Aunt Staci. She is still in the hospital and sounding terrible! They don't know what is wrong, but she can't keep either food or even water down so she is on an IV drip to keep her hydrated. Mom called her on her cell, because she was worried about not hearing from her. They only talked for a minute, because Aunt Staci sounded so bad. Mom is really concerned, but she is in the best place to find out what is wrong.

Well, Mom took off for the gym at 9:30, so no morning sunbath. However since it has cooled off quite a bit here, that was fine. Mom got home, showered and came in to see how tricky it would be to get me into the carrier around 1:15. I climbed right in!! Told you I prefer my sunbaths in the afternoon. Mom sat in the shade, but it was just right for me in the sun. My feathers are glowing!

I had an embarrassing moment last night. Mom and I were in my room, and I was playing with the local (read small) phone book, which is one of my favorite toys. The cover was long gone, and I was curling the pages over to create a tunnel to climb in. However the tunnel was only big enough for my head, and when I tried to shove my wings through the whole thing tipped and I almost fell off the table! Well, of course I had to wreak my revenge on the phone book, and so I shredded several pages into confetti. And then I made another tunnel....Mom laughed! How rude!

We wish your mom a happy and successful year! It kind of makes mom nostalgic, but not that much, haha.
Mom finally talked to Aunt Rose last evening. They got home safely on Tuesday, and she has an appointment for Nana for next week at the doctor. Her daughter is happy to see her back, too, as she also has some medical issues. We're hoping to see her at Parrot Palooza, mom gave her the hotel information.
We are not seeing Aunts Donna and Therese this weekend, the breeder told them the new baby isn't ready yet, so they're coming next weekend. It's a good thing mom doesn't take these things personally, she'd be thinking she doesn't shower enough or something, haha.
This morning mom cleaned the recovery room, then she went to Trader Joe's because their white dijon mustard is the only kind she likes, then she went to the pool. So finally she is back here, and what does she do? She gets on BC to get our blogs done! Well, we'll have her later on, and for the whole evening, as Uncle Gene went back to Germany today, and mom has no plans for tonight.
I hope you are having a great day with lots of good weather, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi ya Cookie~~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. All those meeting do sound boring!! The Seattle teacher union voted to strike if necessary yesterday. Don't know if they will or not. There is a huge gap in what they should be paid and what they are getting paid. They gave up raises a few years ago and now the school board doesn't want to give it back. I think it's time for the entire country to get their priorities straight and realize that education has to be at the top of that priority list!! Okay, enough on my soap box!hehehehe
It actually was cold this morning. Mom is glad she decided to burn off the dust from the heater because we are probably going to need it soon!
It's quiet right now but this morning I had the gardeners with their blowing thingy and a maintenance guy on the roof blowing out the dryer vents! Sheesh! I was trying to take a nap and they just wouldn't stop!!
We still haven't heard from Dixie and I'm getting very worried. I just hope everyone is okay. The page showed active yesterday so I know they got home safely. Hopefully we will hear something today!
Stay cool and enjoy the day!

You are gonna confuse me with that button as YOUR profile pic.
Going over numbers may be boring, but it is SUPPOSE to help with the planning of the school year, what topics need greater emphasis. Its SUPPOSE to do that.
This morning was mom's LAST walk unless she wants to get going at 4:30 am, and that won't work with her 5 am Tues. Holy hour. This must be 3 weeks longer than previous years. It is SO dark--the friend who brings a flashlight was not with mom and the other buddy.
Yesterday was on and off lightning much of the day. Not much rainfall, but some brief downpours. Mom did not get on BC.
Dad replaced the wax rings on both toilets, and there is still water dripping in the basement. There are 2 newly cut holes in the downstairs bathroom. Guess what dad is doing with the long weekend.

It's Blue and Jewel.
The police chief declared yesterday as "Ice Cream Day". He brought in a huge ice cream truck and everything was free for officers, staff and volunteers. What a great treat on a warm, not too hot day.
After the ice cream, mom and dad went to the mall. Dad sat in a chair and took a nap while mom drooled over the crystal pieces.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 79 and a low of 59.
Hope your day is fun.

Cannot imagine having an entire meeting going over test scores. Hopefully the data is favorable and prove that students are learning well.

Hope you get rid of that mugginess. Heat isn't bad but humidity is yucky.

Oh, guess there's a flea market here tomorrow too. The college near us has one first Sat of each month. Let's see, mom's day off, not babysitting, could go...

Holiday Mon is usually busy at the store since kids have the day off. We'll see how busy the Star Wars release has made things. Won't know until later how the midnight sale went and how much is on the shelves.

  Hi Cookie
Plastic trash isn't just accumulating in oceans around the planet but: inside the stomachs of seabirds, from albatrosses to penguins, that confuse the indigestible garbage with food.In 1960, fewer than 5 percent of individual seabirds had evidence of plastic in their stomachs. That soared to 80 percent in 2010,
90 percent of all seabirds alive today have eaten plastic of some kind,. 99 percent of seabird species on Earth will be plagued by plastic ingestion within 35 years.The plastic being eaten by seabirds runs the gamut from bags, bottle caps and cigarette lighters to plastic fibers from synthetic clothes, much of which ends up at sea after washing through urban rivers, sewers and waste deposits.But why are seabirds eating it? Since they rarely have time to examine their seafood before it gets away, many seabirds have evolved to rapidly grab meals from the water as they fly or swim by. This eat-first-and-ask-questions-later strategy had few risks for most of their history, but the past 60 years have brought a sea change to Earth's oceans by peppering them with specks of stomach-clogging plastic.

The problem is especially evident among Laysan albatrosses, which hunt by skimming the surface with their large beaks. They end up eating lots of plastic this way, some of which they later regurgitate for their chicks on land. But while adults can throw up inedible trash they've accidentally eaten, their chicks can't. Depending on the debris, too much might tear a chick's stomach or just cause it to starve despite feeling full. Evidence of such misfortune has become surprisingly common

Although plastic pollution affects seabirds worldwide, it has the most devastating impact in places with high biodiversity. ocean plastic's worst effects occur in the Southern Ocean, specifically a band around the southern edges of Australia, South Africa and South America."We are very concerned about species such as penguins and giant albatrosses, which live in these areas. the infamous garbage patches in the middle of the oceans have strikingly high densities of plastic but very few animals live [there]."

Earth's monitored seabird populations have fallen by 70 percent since the 1950s — the equivalent of about 230 million birds in just 60 years. this isn't just a problem for seabirds, since the winged predators are like canaries in a coal mine for their entire ecosystem.Seabirds are particularly good indicators of the health of marine ecosystems and seeing this magnitude of seabird decline, we can see there is something wrong with marine ecosystems. 8 million metric tons of plastic now enters the oceans every year, fueled by explosive growth of commercial plastic production — an output that has roughly doubled every 11 years since the 1950's

Wow, school already on Tuesday. I sure hope it's a good year for your mom. You will have to get a hold of her schedule and mark in Cookie time.
We still are not hot and sticky up here. But, we head out on Friday next week for FL ... yep, one more week! I hope we get some summer weather!!!
What a nasty t-storm we had last night! It was a really scary one! Today, the rain was coming down so hard, you couldn't see to drive. I feel like a duck! Today, I had my last vet visit and now have my interstate health travel paper. I'm ready to go! Just found out we can't get into our new home until October, bummer.

  Heya, Cookie!
Mom was surprised that I did not go for the bath today after my trip from the vets. Guess cuz it was overcast and grey, and I took one on Monday?

Mom is not feeling too good today--she is pretty sure it is due to the heat and humidity and dewpoint combo. She has a bit of a sore throat (air conditioning). She has not been sleeping too good, either. Just one of those cycles, she figures.

I got to get my wings and nails trimmed today. Great ride over there, and watching the pups in the office before I got in. When she brought me out, I was crouched down in my carrier and glaring at her. I glared at Mom too. And growled. Then Mom said that we should check at the little farm stand for watermelon with seeds. Well, that got me perked up and happy again. And they did have the nice Sugar Baby melons, and then Mom picked up two ears of corn. Mmmm. They were great, considering it is September. Usually those icky corn borers are in the corn by now. But these were perfect. We had one, and the other will be for tomorrow, I think, or Saturday.

We dropped down to around 75, but the dew and humidity are both in the upper 60's. So you know it is icky sticky here. Of course, I have been velcroed to Mom.

Tomorrow Mom goes to take Kim out shopping, and do her grocery shopping too. They will go to Meijers in Oak Creek, which is a bit away from here. Better access though to the freeway. Supposed to be cooler but still very icky sticky.

Wing hugs coming atcha!

I got my bath and a sunbath today at last!
This morning mom was getting clothes and sheets washed. Pretty soon dad came home and had rented some machine to do some yard work out front. Mom had the door open so I could see out the other door. I kept yelling and doing the fly around till mom shut the storm door and I couldn’t see that bad machine. I could hear dad running it though! I sure was glad when dad took that thing back where ever he got it!! Mom stuck with me in the house though so that was good. “A friend like you is like a four leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Cookie--
Mom says it is a good thing your Mom has 4 days to share with you before the grind starts again. As far as being wiped out, our Mom said tired was a chronic condition those last few years...she knew it was time to go when she started zoning out while talking with kids. It was like she'd heard it all before and the responses became almost automatic. She wasn't sure whether that was because she was such an experienced counselor or because she wasn't getting enough sleep--hee hee hee....Anyhow, we're glad she's around a lot more that she would be if she was still working!

Dunno about that moderating...the weather says it's only a temporary respite...of course, since Mom will be unable to work in the garden Friday and Saturday and those are the predicted moderate days. It's like someone really doesn't want her out there!

The Moms will indeed post lots of pix...the camera is already packed to go get her! We can't wait! We wanna see what she does when we land on her Mom chases us off really quick!!

Raffi,me and Polly escaped from the dungeons and locked the guards in thier own dungeon! Heehee! Kevin taught us to be awesome soldiers.
It's been really hot here and check this out.The high school foot ball fields here in So-Cal are melting...They all use astro turf and little plastic bead things that stick to the ground.

  hi cookie
Guess what we're going to do today? Give up? Well, we plan on watching more rain and wind come our way. Nothing serious, but a waste of a day. I don't get my outside time when the weather is lousy.

VOTE, CYDNEY, Polly, and Roof Top to the 10K....

Come visit me, JeTTa - Help Roof Top Get to 10K. Thanks.

  Hi Cookie
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!
How exciting for Momma Mary and Papa Rich to be going to the races!Too bad that I'm going to be traveling with my parronts or I'd be staying there with you to play with boxes and making lacey designs!
Mom and

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

Thanks, everyone, for helping me make my Bird-of-the-Day Celebration a wonderful day.

Dad, Uncle Geno and I had a fun day full of laughter and feisty fun.
Dad n Uncle Geno went to a special showing of Jean-Luc Goddard's "CONTEMPT" from 1963.
Dad enjoyed the visual style, but neither of them liked the film very much.
Guess you can't like 'em all.

Be good to your humans and have a wonderful day.
~Wings Up~

Come visit me, Mario Adler & Flitzer.

  Hi Cookie
As you found out, Pops is NOT smarter than a 5th. grader. But he knows how to handle a fifth. Nothing like Rum and Coke with a twist of lime. Squak

Come visit me, Tweet & Squak.

  Jules looks around for more explosions
and slides in next to Cookie.
Thanks for coming to the booth. Sorry...sorta...we all got you. Let me see that thing.
Cookie offers it to Jules who shakes it a little and Cookie tries to grab it out of his wing. Jules stands and tosses it to Cookie then runs like crazy, still dripping purple, yellow and blue goo

  Hi Cookie
Thank you so much for helping me to make BOTD/"angel" of the day! Seeing all the votes brought my mom to tears this morning. I didn't know that 7 years later, I would still be remembered by so many. My life was short, but I fly with all the birdie angels now, in full feather and flight. Thank you so much again. Angel hugs, Buddy

Come visit me, Clyde, Tiki, Buddy, r.i.p. 8/20/08 & Bobbi.
