  g to cut through summer traffic now.Hopefully the rest of Mom's day will be quiet without any more disruptions.We only wish the sun would come out and be warm again.Dad got all the deck furniture up and now since he's done it we haven't had a chance to go outside and enjoy it!All our rhododendrons have popped and are in bloom overnight.All this rain has caused all the weeds to grow back in the garden even more now and its too wet to go out there and pull them out.So other than Mom trying to get things done around the house before she has to go out tomorrow,its going to be a nice boring quiet day,the kind we love with Mom home spending time with us now and then in between chores!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for everyone there from everyone here!Loving you always and forever,Dixie&Flock and family too!

  Hi Cookie
How wonderful that the rain there stopped around noon so you couldl all enjoy some time outside and Mamma Mary and Papa Rich could go take their walk by the River.Now you were being such a good boy by not tearing apart Papa Rich's t-shirts!I love to do that too,find a single thread and keep pulling!I do that to my special perches and any towels that have threads hanging out that Mom didn't catch!Oh those pocket t's are some kind of funny.My dad loves those too and after time they disintegrate or something.Candida loves to crawl into anything that has a pocket in it.She just loves pockets!I'll bet Mama Mary really appreciated all your help with the school work!Abbott and Costello are so funny.Mom remembers our GPa who used to show those films on reel to reel and they were in B&W and you had to read the captions while watching the film!Poor GMa being too nervous to get on the highway with her new car and Mom doesn't blame her for not wanting to get on the expressway still unsure of driving it and learning where all the gadgets are and getting used to the feel of it all.She sounds like she's doing pretty good for herself though getting around the back roads and taking Gpa to his doctors and the market and drug store!Just those few things alone are challenging enough with the way the roads are today!
My dad just mowed our lawn and now with all this rain we've been having he's gonna have to do it again!Its so good of Papa Rich to take GPa to his drs appointments!Our prayers are still with him for a good visit with no problems!
This morning is another dull dark dismal dreary day with the highs for the day of 75 the lows of 62 and right now under cloudy skies its 65.After Mom got dad off to work,she put some of the laundry away that had been hanging up in the house to dry and then she got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and we got our bean mix.Yesterday Candida's thermal perch stopped working and was ice cold.Mom had tried everything to get it to work but to no avail,she told dad about it and he had an extra plug and it worked and now Candida is happy again with having warm feet and toes.Its still too cold to be without our heated perch and Bird Warmer.We use them all year round here.Its going to be a nice quiet day now we think.Skin bro IM'd Mom earlier this morning and wanted her to call Ryll's auto collision for him as he had an accident at work involving his own car.Mom had to try several times to get through.This place does fabulous work and is quite popular,both Mom and the skin sibs have used this place whenever they've had a dent and/or repair problem.Paul is an expert mechanic and cares about what he does and how he does it.When he's finished with your vehicle he washes it and waxes it before you can come to pick it up.Its hard to make an appointment for skin bro as he works all over including the Islands which makes it hard to pinpoint a timeframe when he'll be coming home especially if he's coming over on the Ferry or tryin

The poem was beautiful, and you are so good at reciting poetry! At least the deck is done for when you are able to use it again. Maybe today?
Mom won the first raffle at the pool this year; it's a gift basket of gift cards! She doesn't know what they are, since she thought she was just contributing. (She rarely wins anything.) But she'll pick it up today and we'll find out. The pool opens at 4 all this week, so mom will pretty much be home after she's done at the museum every day.
This morning's tour was in PA natural history with 7th grade kids. The hour went pretty quickly and the kids were more or less attentive. The group mom had was with a teacher so she was able to keep them focused somewhat. This time of year, though, the kids are done and are looking for summer fun.
Mom posted a pic of the nighthawk and the kestrel on my page for everyone to see. These are a couple of the birds from the avian nursery that mom cleaned yesterday. I hope you are having a great day. It's beautiful here, lots of sunshine and heat. Get lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Cookster
BB is floating on her raft next to the swim platform close to the BC beach when Cookie dos a cannonball next to her.
He forgot he dos not have his wing floats on & he dos not swim.
BB reaches over & pulls him up by his head feathers. Then she carries him up to the beach cause the water is only up to her belly. BB starts beak to beak & Cookie sputters & spits out water.
Akkkkkkkk, says Cookie. Stop trying to kiss me he says.

BB helps him get up & he waddles off down the beach on rubber legs mumbling something about being taken advantage of by a bigger bird.

  Hi, Cookie
Not so good at doing clothing either that's why mom hesitated in doing a pic for us. Think the time we wore suits of armor as knights was the first time we had clothing. You chose a nice background for your prom pic.

The parronts are babysitting today. Mom didn't know that until yesterday. She'll get laundry done in between and when stores open take the grand shopping with them. We watch all the laundry goings on but don't get on 'em. Can't imagine why not as warm clothes must feel nice.

Hopefully all is mending for gpa and just routine follow up. Know takes awhile to get used to a new car as dad is still figuring out his.

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

Yay ... the deck is ready! Enjoy it.
Happy Memorial Day. Today started out very nice but after lunch we had a storm and the rain went on for a couple of hours. Then after dinner, we had scary t-storm lasting a couple of hours. The power went out several times. Mom is doing better today, she even went in the pool before dinner. We had some BBQ ribs for dinner and I even licked one ... that was brave of me.

Glad the deck is all done and thanks for the nice poem too!
Happy Memorial Day and I hope you had a fun and safe one too. Mom made pasta salad and hot dogs and baked beans for the holiday. I was just happy mom was home with me for the day though.
The grand had softball tournaments with the traveling team over the weekend and they got first place so she sure was excited. They only lost one game out of 11. They had second place before but this is the first time they got first place though so really exciting.
Today was another nice day and of course another sunbath for yours truly and sure loving them too. I got another bath too before I went out for my sunbath and mom says all that is good for my feathers.

  Heya, Cookie!
Thank you for the poem! It is a greyt one.

Grandpa says that not a lot of folks put out flags--only 2 on his block! Mom says that putting out flags probably is more his generation and Mom's. Unless you have a person who is in the military, or who was, the day might just be a day for picnics. And putting up the flag is not something they think should be done to honor all those who fought for our freedom.

All we did today was work on some pictures. It was nice out, but Mom got up late (9 AM!) and she said she felt like it was a good day to stay home with me. Who am I to object?! So she did her exercises and did some stuff around here, and I got to look outside from the hanging planter (no plant in it anymore, as I chewed up the silk flowers that were in it years ago). Mom turned on the air as by 5PM it was super hot with the sun coming in, and the nice breeze we had left us.

Hope you had a greyt Memorial Day!

Sure hope Mom, Dad and you are having a nice Memorial Day...We were suppose to have a rainy day but the sun came out and temps reached the mid 70s..This evening though there might be a thunderstorm and temps will be dropping in the upper 60s...
Glad to hear G-Pa is doing okay..Will that mean your Dad might have to go more often to take him places since he is not allowed to drive for awhile?
Guess Mom will be going back to school tomorrow but there is not that many days left before she will be home with Cookie for a couple of months..Did she happen to get the patio cleaned for the Summer?
Well the parronts made the trip to NYC on Saturday and is was not a bad ride to the GW bridge but after paying the toll it was bumper to bumper over the entire bridge..It cleared up after that..They had to go to Broad Channel..It was pretty nice there as far as temps it was 90 in Queens and there it was about 78 and breezy..Of course it is very close to the ocean bay because whenever a hurricane comes up that way that whole street is under water...Anyway till evening came it really got cool you needed a jacket or sweatshirt because the party was outside in their backyard...
Sunday both the parronts were a bit tired from the trip and the day so all they did was nothing..
The flock here had a boring day and Baby B/G kept us alert with it's screeching..
Pecked a V4U....Lots of wing hugs to you my dear friend..Love you buddy, Stormy :o)

It is good to hear from you too. That sounds scary, an implanted defibrillator. Sure hope it works well for g'pa.
Sounds like tomorrow may be mom's last day at school. the 8th grade is having finals, and 7th grade is doing a lot of guided work--not much for mom to do.
Today she put together 5 hanging baskets, and 7 planters. Wonder if they will survive the week we are all gone.
The black raspberries are looking good--lots of blossoms. Tomorrow mom will need to get the weeds mown(the front lawn is FULL of hawkweed).
Mom has not put the collar back on, toesies crossed and eyes on alert!

  Hi Cookie,

How are you, Buddy? It's Apache. Hope your Grand Pop is doing okay.

Mom got in the Pool from Wed. thru Sat. Yesterday she had "6" Birthdays to celebrate here and of course, Hope's 4th Birthday. She didn't make it back in time to celebrate the Birthdays here but at least she did get to say Hello to everyone & give out her gifts LOL. Mom said she was having so much fun at Hope's Party with all of her Sister In Law's Friends & Family. Finally about the last 1-1/2 - 2 hrs. she said she better go spend time with her Family LOL! Aunt Shirl cancelled for today since it was suppose to be a washout! It did pour during the night, it's been cloudy & humid and it's starting to rain again. But at least Mom & Aunt Shirl went to Lowes to pick out the Kitchen light & a one pc. faucet for the sink. We're having all leftovers so no cooking today!

Tomorrow & Wed. Mom is watching Hope. She just has this week & next week and her Sister In Law, Chrissy is done School. But she will help her out & watch Hope when her Dad needs his Chemo. Okay, guess that's all for now. Hope You and your Mom & Dad are doing well. Here's a vote for you, Cookie. Bye for now.

P.S. We love You and Aunt Mary Too!

  Hello Cookie~~
I hope you are having a lovely Memorial Day. It's very pretty here today. Mom took McKenzie for a nice long walk this morning. They ran into Bailey the Malamute. McKenzie always gets down on the ground with any dog she meets but today she started belly crawling towards Bailey. Bailey's mom said McKenzie was doing the military crawl!hahahahaha Bailey is very sweet and very calm. Maybe one day McKenzie will get the calm part down!
Mom thought that if she took McKenzie for a nice long walk she could wear her out a bit and have a quieter morning. Didn't work!hahahahaha
Mom is getting stuff ready to take to Goodwill. She has been putting things in boxes for weeks as she cleans out closets and drawers and now it's time to get the stuff out of the house!
I thoroughly enjoyed your recitation! Thank you so much for sharing it with me. Mom and I were wondering how a day to remember fallen soldiers turned into a day for picnics and BBQ's. Gonna have to research that!!
Enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

We loved your Memorial Day Poem!You did a greyt recitation too!
YAAAAYYYY!You finally got your deck summer ready and the planting done too!Mom still has to get her garden tilled and my dad will have to do it next weekend for her so she can start planting some sugar snap peas and green beans and zucchini so we can at least get the squash flowers if we don't get any zucchini!Oh don't you just love that corn on the cob?Mom gave us all some from what she made from our BBQ yesterday,and we even got some chicken and a tiny bit of apple crisp!Mom is glad she got all the laundry done yesterday because its dumping rain here all day and the yellow pollen is floating in all the puddles in our driveway!We are so happy that Mama Mary got to enjoy a burger at the cookout at the granparronts Saturday.We can't wait til her poor tooth is fixed so she can start enjoying food again!
This morning was a dark,dismal,dreary,dull pouring rain morning.The highs for the day will be 69 the lows of 60 and right now its 68 and freezing.Mom couldn't stand being so cold and she put the heat box back on to chase the chill from the house.Mom got dad off to work this morning and it was lightly raining when he left.All the yellow pollen was in puddles all over our driveway.A half hour later my dad called to tell Mom that they cancelled the parade and no one told my Dad and his crew until after they had half of the barricades set up for the parade.So he and his crew took what they had already put up taken down and he came home.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages and fed us our bean mix and swept our room.Then she made rice krispie treats,apple pie cookies and Macadamia white chocolate cookies.After she cleaned up from that,she did a few chores that she didn't get to yesterday.Other than it being a dark,sleepy kind of a pouring rainy day here,there's nothing exciting or interesting going on.We're just happy that both Mom and dad are here with us today.Its a good thing we had our BBQ yesterday and got to enjoy being outside all day as it looks like today isn't going to be happening any time soon for that!

  Hi Cookie
Sounds like you will be all ready for summer. It has to be hard on grandpa, since he was so active before. Can he still do some small woodworking projects? Birdhouses? Feeder trays? Just curious...
Happy Memorial Day to all!
Yesterday was a washout at the pool, it rained nearly all afternoon. Mom did go to dinner with her daughter, though, and had a good time. Mom's granddaughter Lena called, too, and they have plans for next Sunday. Guess what? Lena is still willing to cut mom's hair! So mom will drive down there on Sunday to visit and get a haircut in the afternoon.
Today mom cleaned and fed in the avian nursery. There is a big variety of birds in there now, including bluebirds, those cute downy woodpeckers (who are in a fledgling cage now), a pileated woodpecker, a baby kestrel, a nighthawk, some ducklings, and the usual assortment of baby songbirds, sparrows, and pigeons. It's getting very crowded in there! Mom got all the cages done except for the little crow, and that was because, since she had the 30 minute timer, she just ran out of time. The thirty minute timer was for 2 incubators today, which means about 40 baby birds all needing cleaned and fed every half hour. That takes a lot of time!
After the center, mom came home, changed, and went to the pool, where she jumped into the water just to cool off a little before she even set up her chair. She stayed at the pool for about 3 hours, and now that she's showered and dressed, she's ours for the rest of the day. No picnics this year, unfortunately, but that's okay. Mom bought a chicken wrap at the pool to eat for dinner tonight, so she still doesn't have to cook.
I hope you are having a wonderful Memorial Day celebration today, maybe attending a parade, or giving thanks to our vets in some other way. Get lots of attention for yourself, too! Hugs, Falco

  This Memorial Day
let's remember all of those who served. We thank you.

Well, it is supposed to hit 76 here today, although not until about 1PM which is when I will get my sunbath.
Then the temps will be climbing fast until by Friday we will be in the 90s. That means morning sunbaths, which is when I start giving Mom a hard time about getting into the carrier again. Since she now has worked out several methods for getting me in there, I suppose my tricky ways won't be working so well.

Becky emailed Mom last night, and Gold's decided to waive her 2 weeks notice and let her go. She wasn't surprised, because they don't want her to take her clients with her. They don't know she is going private part time to supplement her Physical Therapy job, but they didn't want to take any chances. Since she already set things up with the clients she wants to keep, like Mom, too bad for them. Mom still has 5 sessions left, but Becky has talked to Talyah about Mom's issues so things will work out just fine with her for those sessions.

Meanwhile as soon as Mom is done blogging we will share either a roast beef sandwich or more enchilada pie for lunch then go outside. Sounds like a fine afternoon to me.

Today is the last day to enter the Prom Pic Contest, so if you want in on the Prom Royal Court you had better get your pic ready to go.

Hi Cookie,
I'll bet your Mom can hardly wait to get her tooth stuff over and done. Mommy is afraid of what kind of expense this will be. She doesn't have dental insurance. It sounds like summer vacation will be gladly welcomed by your Mom this year, maybe a bit more than usual. You have a very busy Mom, too.

Oldest skin sis arrives this afternoon from MN. So Mommy has another trip to the airport today. Unfortunately, one of our major freeways to the airport is closed for several months while it's being re-paved. So that means that Mommy has to take surface roads. It isn't too bad as long as it's not during rush hour. Since today is a holiday, it won't be too bad, but it still takes an additional 20 to 30 minutes. When the freeway is open it's about 45 min. So now it's over an hour. Mommy is happy to make the trip though.

Mommy is trying to get a few blogs in before all the birdies are up, but of course, I'm up and keeping her company. We hope you and your parronts have a wonderful Memorial Day.

It's Blue and Jewel.
ADT was here bright and early on Thursday and had the alarm system reprogrammed in less than an hour, at no charge. There's actually not much else going on. Mom cleaned a bunch of our cages while dad cleaned our room. We didn't think it needed cleaning but we were out voted. Today dad is putting the nest boxes back on Blue and Jewel's cage, Skye and Rio's cage, and Cammie and Bourke's cage. Maybe there will be babies this year.
Yesterday mom made her famous Cheesy Garlic Artichoke Dip for a Memorial Day BBQ at her brother's house this afternoon, so we'll all be in lockdown again.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 75 and a low of 55.
Hope your day was fun.

I like your Memorial Day tribute picture! Don't forget to do a prom one for the milonga contest - it is due not later than tomorrow!
That is cool about the caw-caw nest. What kind of birds are they? It will be cool to see them fledge!
Glad to hear your gpa is doing okay. I am sure he is happy to have your parronts around and that your dad can take him to the doctor today!
Cool that your mom gets a four day weekend! And then it is almost over! Wow! Does she think the year went fast or slow? I know you are super excited to spend the summer with your mom home most of the time!
We continue with the heat here! Hopefully June will be cooler than May and April. The headline in the paper the other day said: Merida- an Immense Sauna! hehehe! That is exactly right!
Dad is golfing today and mom is doing things around the house. She still has the remains of that cold but feels better each day!

Hey "Swordfish". Cool glasses. *R raises his beak up in a casual sort of nod.* His breath has the interesting aroma of el paso nutriberries.

So, how are things measurin' up around your place these days? Got spring stuff bloomin'? Is the vacation cabin in your future? A view of that lake from the window would be a fine way to start the summer vacation, would it not? Oh, here, I've got your, uh, receipt. *R slides a stiff piece of paper over towards Cookie.* You picked some fine ones for Saturday's race. I hear that Alysheba's got incredible determination. I mean, he nearly gets knocked down in the '87 Derby but goes on t'win the thing! Since you and him aren't gonna start this race out on the ground, you've really got a good chance at makin' that betting receipt worth a fortune!

Good luck t'morrow, Cookie. To you and Alysheba both.

  Hi Cookie
Not much going on here today. Mom started doing some spring cleaning, and I helped! She looked like she was having lots of fun so of course I had to join in the fun! You'd think she would get done a lot quicker with me helping!

I hope your day was a good one!
Love & a vote
From your friend

  Someone Ticked Off Mother Nature & She Came A...
...a callin'! 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 lu

  Hi Cookie--
Oooh, Valentine's Day is over....can we shred your heart box? You can keep the candy if you like....

Mom has been really busy lately...she's sealed us in vinyl so we can't get at Rosie's toe any more...she still comes to visit us, and she still gets chased away, even tho there's no way we can get at her toesies now.

The Moms have been spending evenings watching Orange is the New Black. They are up to season 3 now. Parts are really hilarious---but then there's some sad stuff too, of course.

Anyhow thanks for acknowledging our BOTD fling. It came and went quickly, just like us!! Hee Hee....

Hugs--Sherman and Peabody

Come visit me, Rosie, The Society of Finches, Sherman and Peabody & Tooth: Flew Home 8/11/2014.
