  Hey Cookie
Not a thing today for us to o. Kind of on the cool side, low now, 42. BUT, there is a bird show tomorrow over in Largo, which is south of Tampa, and of course, I am allowing pops and Mom to attend. It's not one of the better shows, but still, it's a show, and they just have to go. Squak...

tonight Cori shredded a egg carton on the bed. then she thought it would be cute to flap her wings and send all the shredded egg carton on the floor. when mom looked at me she saw i had taken everyone of my treasures and had them spread all over the carpet. mom had to get down on her hands and knees and pick each piece of paper up individually to throw in the trash so she didnt get any of my treasures mixed in with it.i will check tomorrow to make sure they re all still there. it was nice of mom to make the effort because she knows how much i love my shinies.

HAPPY TGIF DAY
this is not an infomercial. mom was very excited when she found this website. tired of being in a culture of waste and contributing to the massive landfill dilemmas. remember when products from the 50's lasted forever and if you are lucky enough to still own any chances are they are still working. now their is a website that only stocks products that guarantee they will last a lifetime
Tired of replacing stuff? Buy Me Once solves that problem. i suggest you check it out. they don't carry everything and are interested in know about things you think are excellent products.

all the compnieson this website stand by their products.
the website is buymeonce.com

love Boo Boo

  Hey Cookie,
Yeah I miss playing on the swings with you too. . . . .

Sorry I didn't get my blog out today as mom had an interview lunch time and they made her wait for a few minutes then told her to come back in 15 minutes. Plus mom had to feed the meter but forgot her phone at work so she drove a block and then came back. She had to kinda walk far so when she came home she took a long birdie nap.

She didn't get up till 6 pm, what a snoozer I tell ya!

So tonight I'm gonna talk about Iolani Palace that's in town.

It's full of antiques and portraits of the past king and queens and other Hawaiian descendants also.

Mom took a ghost walking tour one night long time ago and one stop was at the palace and the tour guide was a renound ghost guy.

At one end where the princess was being held he said you could smell her perfume blowing in the breeze. And everyone on the tour could smell it and got chicken skin. Down the street was an old building that was an old morgue back in the day and that's why people in that building has eggsperienced things moving or missing.

The spirits are alive and moving there. Mom never worked in that building, well not since she heard about that.

The ghost tour ended up in the graveyard in town which was appropriate being a ghost tour an all.

Mom enjoyed it and so did her friends.

In my gallery you can see the palace and also other pictures.

Now you know if you ever go by the palace on the east side corner, try and see if you can smell the princess perfume. You'll be amazed, mom was. :)

That's all for tonight as my typist is getting sleepy.

More tomorrow and I thank you for your votes and support.

Here's a vote for you also.

Love and Aloha,

Oh goodie ... a vacation with mom! It will be here soon. Have you planned anything special? I think you better write on her calendar before something else comes up. My aunt & uncle will be here on the 18th .... I'm so eggcited.
It was sunny today but no pool for us. I'm sitting on my perch wearing my flip flops and waiting for the warm weather. They say we'll have 60's (62 to 65) for another week, so sad. Even the plants aren't happy with too much rain and cold. I think we have to move further south, maybe St Thomas ... LOL!

  Heya, Cookie!
We think your Mom knows a whole lot more about puters than she lets on...truly! Mom uses a template for the websites, but she changes them up as much as possible. She just knows where to do that in the software she uses. She really enjoys it, too.

Oh, now having a winter break is lovely for ya! I know you are gonna be so happy to have your Mom around lots more.

Today Mom went to her mechanic as she found some type of bracket under the car. It could have been from the owners parking in her spot for a short time, or feel off something, but since it was sort of under the car, near the muffler, she figured she better get it checked. They could not find anything there. As long as she was there and they were not busy, she got an oil change and then went to get popcorn at the apple orchard store, and then ran to Meijer for grapes and bison--they had ground bison! She loves the stuff, so I know that we are gonna have some yummy bison burgers. Panther and his flock can relate how healthy bison is, we are sure.

Then she came home and we had a lovely afternoon together. The best!

Wing hugs coming your way!

Glad you got the card and its made with the cuttle bug and is a die. Better yet glad you liked it!! Wow a whole week off soon...that is great!
One grands school colors are gold and blue too.
This morning mom and I washed clothes and sheets and then we dusted and swept up the floor. I supervised from her shoulder and know she would of not done as good of a job with out my help. When mom was all done with that she got my lunch and then started cleaning the refrigerator and the freezer on the frig too. There was lots of nuts up in the freezer and other goodies that I kept trying to get my beak into. Once that was all cleaned out mom started taking all the shelves out and every thing on the shelves. By then dad kept coming into the kitchen and being in moms way too. Mom suggested he take me and go in some other room so she could get done LOL. Finally it was all done and put back together again even with mine and dads help LOL. “Our hearts decide who is family” Leaving a vote for you ..Frothter, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

A big herd of deer were at our house this afternoon! We counted 9 does & since the herd wouldn't come all the way out of the woods, there's a good chance more were there just inside the tree line & most likely the buck was in there, too! We'd like to think so anyway.

  Hello Cookie~
I hope the day was a great one!! Thanks for the Hatchday/Birthday wishes! Mom knew that I was hatched in 1978 but did not know the exact day so she gave me her birthday. She said she really didn't need it anymore!hahahahaha She is excited about this one because she is 60 today and that means in 2 years she can collect SS and work part time to keep her medical! I can't wait either! She could actually start sleeping again and I figure McKenzie should be trained up by then! Well, maybe!
Mom bought McKenzie a rawhide bone and it has been quiet here for an hour! I love those things! I told mom she needs to buy and entire case! I have to tell you that listening to her run around squeaking those silly toys was starting to get on my nerves! Merlin is even out sleeping on McKenzie's pillow and she is ignoring him! I feel like I've moved to paradise!
We hope your mom got to get home early and we hope you all enjoy the weekend! Mom is off which is totally crazy! Dad pointed out that mom has only taken 3 Saturdays off in the 16 years she has worked at the store! It was a special birthday so mom wanted the entire week off! She gets 4 weeks a year but she usually ends up donating it to someone who got sick and needed the time! She still has 3 weeks left if that happens.
Have a great night!

  Hi Cookie
Well, Mom went to the GI doc yesterday, and as expected she will need to have an endoscopy. He also wants to put in a small wireless device that measures pH to monitor her acid for 2-3 days, but Mom is pretty sure the insurance people will not approve that. It is very leading edge, and insurance is always trailing edge.

It was warm enough for a sunbath today (73), but the wind is absolutely howling out there. I do not like the wind, so I am staying inside. It is supposed to be even warmer tomorrow and for the next week or so. Surely this wind will die down, and I will be able to catch some rays.

Today was the last day to enter the pic contest for the Valentine's Milonga. Entries will be closed in a couple of hours, but we have some wonderful pics entered, eggspecially in the Couples category. You can see the names of the entries now, and we will put up the pics by this evening. We are still missing one pic, but hopefully will have it in time.

Mom and all of us can't wait for Mama Mary to have her mid-winter break so she can be with you for a whole week and play with you!And it will be even better as there won't be any running around to do or things to get!
How awesome to have a half day on a Friday as it makes for an extra long weekend!I wonder if all the kids will wear their school colors for school spirit day!It sounds like it will be a fun day for both the teachers and the kids!
Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and gave us our bean mix,then she got a call from my dad,he's been calling Mom all night long,to tell her that she should be staying home today and not going out as the weather is really bad out there.It was pouring rain all night and has been since all day yesterday.The wind is really strong,moving the branches of the trees all the way down and up.The rain has since changed to snow and everything is getting covered with white heavy wet snow,its already getting icy out there and the temperatures are going to drop which will make everything treacherous on the roads.Our highs for the day are 35 with the lows of 24 and right now its 32.It's a very dark as night day here,dismal,dreary and windy.Skin sis called to tell Mom that they took her off the floral arrangements(she's a florist)and have her on the registers as all the silly people are flooding in to buy groceries in the storm.You would think they would stay home in such hazardous weather conditions.Dad already told Mom a car slid off the road and went into the woods.Our end of town is the worst he told us,he's been out driving around inspecting the roads his fellow employees have been plowing and salting.They changed the forecast from 1-3 inches to 3-5 inches and its snowing so fast and furious here and the wind is making the view so hard to see anything but white outside the windows.
It will be another dark boring day here while Mom works around the house but she's home with us and we're happy!
Candida has been squealing and crying for my dad,she missed her snuggle time with him last night.Mom keeps me in my travel cage so she can't beat me up when we have dinner now and I'm happy I get to join them on the dining table and not have to spend time in my room all alone.
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

We had a few snow flurries this morning, but it's all clear and sunny now. It's supposed to warm into the mid 40s tomorrow, too, but today's high is only around 38. It's been a mild winter so far.
This morning mom and Asmita, another volunteer, had the Runs to clean. That is an area where some of the education animals live, and there are some rehab patients in there too. The education animals in there are the turkey vultures, Sid, Vince, and Tony, and the 5 turtles. There are also some snapping turtles in there, a beautiful male mallard, a porcupine, and a broad winged hawk. It's always an interesting place to clean, because you never know who's going to be in there.
Mom is going out to dinner tonight with her sister, but she's ours for the rest of the day. We put some of our latest reads on the library page for anyone who's interested. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

It's Blue and Jewel.
Dad had an early appointment at the wound center yesterday so we were unable to blog with all of you. Sorry about that. Dad's leg continues to improve. Dad is having only a small amount of pain now. In fact, if he's busy with stuff he forgets all about it.
Mom and dad went to the movies yesterday and saw "The Good Dinosaur". What a wonderful movie! The animation was incredible and the story line was beautiful. Even dad got a little misty eyed. After the movie they went to Costco to pick up some stuff for dinner and some already cooked and pealed eggs. Mom and dad are making deviled eggs to take to mom's brother's house for a Super Bowl Sunday BBQ.
Today will be clear, with a high of 75 and a low of 51. No more rain in sight for at least another week.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

Know you'll be counting the days down on your claws for that mid winter recess from school so your mom will be home with you. Glad your winter has been fairly mild. We should be having a warm up soon but rather have more rain as still need more.

Does the school has a mascot as well as colors? Don't recall the parronts elementary school having colors but they did have a mascot.

every other word i type in the blog makes the page scroll down to the bottom and then we start getting that music from car commercials and other things. its very hard to
tonight their were people singing in the music. no one else gets the music but us. make it stop.

mom spent all afternoon grooming our older cat. first she tried to get as many mats off of him without pulling her hurting him. she tried to cut them in half and then pull them apart and then try and brush them out. one of the mats had a stick in it. then mom gave him a bath with tearless conditioning cat shampoo and then put a coconut cat conditioner in his fur. then she tried to brush some more mats out. then after she towel dried him she blow dried him and he seemed to enjoy that. his fur wasn't dirty at all and he doesn't look any different after all that but he must feel better. then mom wanted to brush him some more but she misplaced his brush or else he hid it from mom so she would stop. then after dinner she gave Cori a nice shower and then bow dried her. moms sys her feathers feel very soft now and she spent about an hour preening herself after wards. i watched all this in horror and thought to myself thank god its not me

  Hi Cookie,
Oh yes, mom was thinking of taking a hike tour up to Diamond Head crater trail.

When mom was much younger she used to hiking up there and the 100 vertical stairs would turn anyone away! Hehehe. Moms fastest time to the top was like 25 minutes or so. Now, she barely tolerates going to the grocery store. Well dad takes hours reading the prices and such that's why mom doesn't like to go with dad.

She just wants to get what she needs and gets out. Hehehe

I know that mom wants to talk about the food too and how much she misses the Big Island food.

That should peak everyone's interest, doncha think?

Angel Sallykins is so happy the Cookie is a wiz at campaigning.

She snuggles with him and they talk about when all this will be over and then mom can rest her poor fingers.

I love you my sweetie pie! She hugs him tight.

Oh and mom will hafta talk about the flowers too! :)

I hope you had a wonderful day! It was busy around here but that was just because of puppy duty. McKenzie got into a lot of trouble today. She just couldn't seem to sit still. Mom was chasing after her most of the day! She still is! McKenzie just doesn't want to leave Merlin alone. Mom doesn't want to keep Merlin locked up all day and McKenzie really needs to learn to leave him alone.
I decided she was looking pretty hungry so I started throwing seeds, nuts and pellets down for her! Mom didn't think it was a very good idea. She swept it up and by the time she dumped it, I had thrown more down. Mom swept it up again and then dumped the rest. I got some veggie instead. That was my plan all along!hahahahaha
Obviously, we didn't get much else done. Mom was working on cleaning the oven. Since we don't use any chemicals around here it takes a bit longer to do. She should be able to finish it up tomorrow.
I hope you enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Mom went over to see her granddaughter Olivia for 3 hrs to discuss her science fair project. Mom had the nerve to put me in lockdown! Livi is so excited to be growing crystals for her project! Mom showed her different crystals on websites. They are going to do at least 10-12 different crystals. Mom said that I don't get to help at all...how rude! She said that boiling water and birdies don't mix! For the crystals that will be made using chemicals will be done over at Livi's house...NEVER any chemicals used around me! Mom is going supply shopping tomorrow and Livi & she will start working on crystals over the weekend. The science fair is on March 7th, so hopefully they will get a lot made by then!

Glad we could help with a quote for your moms valentines day cards.LOL. We sent our valentines card out to you so you should be getting it soon.
Mom has been making the suet for the wild birds and dad has two holders down on the trail he puts it in about every other day. Well things were going good and the wild birds were enjoying it and the other day a limb was broken down and the one suet holder was empty and on the ground. Dad got the one tractor and got in the bucket of it and went up high and hung the feeder. Well today he went down to check and here is was down on the ground again and empty. Dad thinks it’s a raccoon stealing the wild birds food so now he is going to put it up in a different area and see how that works. Poor birds probably arent getting much of it but guess the raccoon has to eat too LOL. “Our hearts decide who is family” Leaving a vote for you ..Frothter, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hey Cookie! That Was An Awesome Limerick...
....and it was about ME! Wow, that's so cool, dude-bird! You know what makes it even funnier? There's a running joke in Mom's family about "SPAM"!! You see, her dad L.O.V.E.D. that stuff! It was kinda a sad story how he came to "love" it. So here it comes, the sad story of how her dad fell in love with "SPAM".

It was many decades ago & her dad was in WWII in the South Pacific. They were on some island & the fighting was hard. Their supplies were running thin as well as their bodies. One night they hear something coming through the jungle & they all take cover. Her dad was the first to see it, a GOAT, wandering around, eating vegetation here, vegetation there, so he jumps on it!! Yes, they killed the goat to eat it. But none of them knew anything about cooking one. They cooked it TOO long, trying to make sure they didn't get sick from the meat, but from what he said, it was so tough, no one could chew it!! So, they tried hard to eat it but would have to spit it out. About 2 days later, a supply ship was able to get in & what was the only meat they had? Yep. SPAM!! Mom's dad said it tasted better than any steak he had ever sunk his teeth into!

So,many years later, her dad would go to the store, pick up some SPAM & he'd fry it up this way & that while his kids sat there with their noses wrinkled up cringing at the thought they were going to have to EAT that, but they didn't. He never made them eat it although he let them taste it if they wanted to. He never tired of eating SPAM.

Before Mom moved to NC, she had only lived in one state, Florida. So you can imagine her surprise when they were settling down in NC & her kids began learning their state's history, etc., one of the "claims to fame" from NC is this is where SPAM was invented & made....processed....conjured....planned....found? Mom's still not sure what is in SPAM & really doesn't want to know. We do know it was "invented" for K-rations back in the days of WWII. We've heard rumors there are arsenals of this stuff on NC marine & army bases. It is truly a scary beast that is in that stuff...if it's meat at all, we're not really sure!! Moms's siblings have said that had Mom's dad lived longer, he would have been visiting her the most so he could take back loads & loads of SPAM. Who knows? It might have come to him when he called to it & just followed him back to Florida! heeheehee!

Mom's keeping all of the donated limericks. They're too special to ever forget! Thanks for coming!

Hugs, SamIAm

  Heya, Cookie!
You have a puzzle book of your very own? Now that is pretty darn awesome for ya. Spoiled much? As you should be! Even if I had my own, I would want whatever Mom was working on--after all, anything of Mom's should be mine!

Mom and I had a nice quiet day here. She is excited as the website she was working on is now up and running on the internet. It is not done yet, but just the fact that it is uploaded and functional is greyt. And the guys she did it for are happy with it. Gotta admit, she loves it too. Hopefully it will get the rest of the information in it and can be working to help bring in business for them. Hope so.

Lots of sun today, but gosh, it was cold out. 29 is not what it looked like out there...but was. I took a bath--a huge one as it was nice and warm in the apt. Got water everywhere. Got a towel off and a blow dry. Life is good!!

Wing hugs from your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Cookie,

How are you, Buddy? It's Apache. Weird weather we are having! Yesterday it was 66 and pouring. Today it's 50 but damp and tonight we're having snow showers! But at least 99% of the snow from our Blizzard is gone!

Mom's not having a great day with her back, butt and legs! It's her stupid Spinal Stenosis but she said the not being able to sleep is the worse part! She finally falls asleep & if she wakes up, forget about sleeping! Anyway, she's taking her meds, hot showers & using her Biofreeze. Everything helps to take the edge off. Mom can't get another shot til the middle or end of March. That's not so bad! She feels fortunate that she's as well as she is. Mom knows there are so many more people that are worse off then her & she's grateful. We all did get showers and our cages are nice & clean! Hope You and your Mom & Dad are having a good day and I'm sure waiting for the weekend! Here's a vote for you, Buddy. Bye for now.

Winghugs,
Apache

  Hi Cookie
Yes, NEXT week. I am not sure WHAT all is going on. Mom says Sun - Wed she is at church at 7 pm for the parish mission(she claims she was not on the planning committee--our parish 'evangelist' is not of the planning nature. The pastor also does not like to let details get in the way...) Wed mom will not be at school, as the WHOLE school goes to the 'other' parish for the practice of the Winter Concert which occurs Thursday evening. Mom heard one grade practicing "Thrive" (Casting Crowns). She likes that song.
At least this year your mom has a nice group to deal with the craziness of the week.
Today when I got mom to play catch, she was ready to stop so I squawked and refused a step up so we could play longer. She tried to get skinbro to video me, but that really annoyed me.

  hi Cookie
They called me Creature at first, but one day my dad had me and the other quail out and I kept creeping past him to explore. Then he started calling me Creepy Creature, and the name stuck. So, not that kind of creepy. I guess a better name would be Sneaky Creature. Here's a vote.
