I was at the breeders store and Kallie was being fed formula and he was distributing it to all the other baby birds in the nursery and when he looked up and saw me through the glass window it was love at first sight. Tim the breeder let me hold him and he immediately went inside my coat to snuggle. That was it..

  Hi Kallie
Everyone is home now ! The flea market was a really good one - mom found lots of good things - so did daddy ! The Tupperware lady who mom met last fall was there and guess what ? She had a discontinued piece that was missing a top, just for ME ! Mom had told her about the sheet cake carrier that I use as a bathtub and that it was getting ratty (mostly cause I chew on the edges . . . ) Anyway she didn't even charge mom ! ! There are some nice people out there :)

And the day was (and still is) picture perfect ! Not a cloud in the sky and low to mid 70's all day - and a day like that screams COOKOUT ! So daddy grilled burgers - mom made some macaroni salad (and gave me a macaroni before putting it into the salad) and CORN ! ! ! Life is good :)

How was your day ? Hope you got out and had some yummies too ! Give everyone and everybird in your house my hugs ! love Cookie

It was such a great day yesterday.I forgot to tell you that my mom used the new vacuum for the first time yesterday and loves it!!It worked so good.
Sounds like my mom with her bedroom closet project she just cant seem to ever finish that job.She worked on it a little yesterday.
Hope your mom can finally finish her project and get rid of all that forgotten stuff.Could she posibly just throw it into bags then call a good will or st vincents and have them come pick up many of those places will.
Hope the deck furniture gets out soon so your mom has a more comfy place to sit when shes out there.Have a great afternoon buddy.

  Hi Kallie
Mom loves baby season at the center, even though it's hectic and sometimes crazy. The baby birds are in incubators, so it's easy to keep track of their feedings, but when they move to the cages in there, it's more difficult. All the charts have feeding times and formulas posted, whether they get hand fed baby bird or fledgling food, but with 10 birds in a cage, it's wild. All the starlings kept flying out yesterday!
The pool opens today, and it will be 66 at noon when the doors open, so mom is thinking of going up there a little later on, maybe 1 or 2. She slept in this morning, so got a late start with feeding us and walking the dogs, so that's her excuse. The sun is beautiful today, we think it will warm up quickly. We had a frost warning last night, but mom didn't cover anything and it was okay, there was no frost here.
I hope you are enjoying the start of the long weekend, and planning some fun in the sun. Get lots of cuddles and scritches, too. Hugs, Falco

mom heard on the news the massive traffic jams as everyone is heading to the beaches this weekend. i would think the water would be freezing right now.

dad was cooking doggies dinner and had set the glass microwave plate on the stove burner and forgot to turn the burner off and it exploded. mom is glad the glass was more in chunks and not so much shattered shards there were a few shards but not many. then dad keeps standing in the middle of it in his bare feet.

Had a full day of sun today and my mom.Since it was sunny and warm I got to sit in the window and look out and scream at a few birds.
My mom had the day off and spent the whole day at home we worked on laundry and a few dishes then she cleaned my cage.Came close to taking a nap but she got up before she fell asleep.Looks like tomorrow will be on the nicer side before rain moves in for Sunday and Monday. Guess that's okay since my mom works all those days.Have a goodnight.

  Well, I finished pouting
I'm proud of me - I gave the groomer a hard time - kept trying to get away ! har har har ! But then when she was done, she gave me a goodbird nutriberrie :) Then by pouting when I got home, mom gave me lots of love, scritches, cuddles and ANOTHER nutriberrie ! ! ! Of course my awesome talons are short and stubby now . . .

Mom and dad just got home from their walk by the river - it was pretty crowded today - being the first day this week we hit 70 with sunshine ! While they were there they saw an eagle ! It was so cool !

Tomorrow morning they'll get up and leave early - they like to get to the flea market before the crowds - and this one sure does get crowded ! Not that they ever find much, but mom loves to poke around and daddy loves the junk food !

Did mama Rose get all of Friday's errands run today ? I hope it was a nice one there too - and that you got lots of boxes to shred ! Give everyone my love :) Cookie

  Hi Kallie
We haven't been out most of the week, it's been just too cold for us, mom says.
Mom has a booboo on her leg that she didn't even know happened. Yesterday when she left the museum, the car door slammed into her shin (because she's clumsy sometimes) and it hurt, but mom didn't think anything of it. Last night when she was getting ready for bed, she saw that she had bled on her khaki pants! There was a huge wound on her leg as well. It doesn't hurt, but it will take awhile to heal.
Today mom worked in the avian nursery, and she had the 20 minute timer as well. Every 20 minutes she had to feed the smallest babies in the incubator, and of course, clean their nests and paper underneath, too, because what's going in one end seems to push out what's at the other end. She managed, between 20 and 45 minute feedings, to clean only 6 other cages. The avian nursery is pretty full right now, with robins, sparrows, starlings, mourning doves, pigeons, a cedar waxwing, a woodpecker, a little screech owl, crows, etc. The 6b ducklings in one of the cages got a fake mom today. Mom found the decoys they use for moms, and popped one in there on the heating pad. The babies will gather round it for comfort once it heats up a little.
After the center, she went shopping for fruits and veggies for us. Now she's home, and after doing our blogs, will plant the strawberry, gooseberry, and peppers that our neighbor left for us. We are under a frost advisory for tonight, so mom will have to look for some sheets for the tender stuff she is planting today. Everything else should be okay.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

well its 44 degrees right now and feels more like snow weather. no wonder they tell you not to plant until after memorial day.

mom has to take apart the outside grill and clean out the pipes because they say if you leave them outside the pipes get clogged with spider webs and can cause an explosion

  Hey Kallie
How was your day ? I know today is one of the days mama Rose runs lots of errands - not easy now that the out-of-towners have invaded !

Mom and dad just got home from their walk - which they cut short - it was pretty windy and down by the river that means cold wind ! The air feels a little better today, and although she needed a jacket, mom was still pretty comfortable on recess duty.

Guess what mom did while her class was in the library ? She went and made a grooming appt. for me ! For some reason it upset her when my awesome talons scratched her while we were playing last night ! Can you imagine that ? I'm so mad . . . not a way to start the summer season !

Hope you have a good night :) love all of you ! Cookie

It's good that Nana is getting mail in her garage mailbox instead of having to cross the street. That's a lot safer for her now. It's also good to hear that she had the sense to know when to quit walking and chose to return to Macy's on another day.
It's really cold again today, high of 56, but we don't think it's anywhere near there yet. Mom took lots of flower pics, so will post them on all 3 pages. There are 19 or so new pics. It's a good thing she took the azalea pics yesterday, because it rained overnight and with the cool weather and rain, many of the flowers have dropped off the bushes already.
Today mom had 2 tours, both from the same school district, and both in Dinosaurs. The kids were 4th graders, which is the grade mom likes best. So her time at the museum was lots of fun this morning. Later we will get our cages cleaned, and mom will go to dinner with Aunt Renee. Aunt Renee is leaving next week to go to Texas and celebrate her namesake's 90th birthday. Mom will have a card ready for her to take to Aunt Lorene when she goes.
Not much new, enjoy the flowers! Hope you are having a good day with sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kallie!
Hi friend! How are you? I am doing very well. Right now I'm hanging out on mommy's computer while she is helping me and my other flock members say hi to you guys! I'll probably stay here to help her do her school when she is done here. (: I overheard mom saying that she is going to deep clean and rearrange our cages today or tomorrow... I like when she cleans my cage, but I don't like when she moves my toys around! I'll keep them right where they are, thank you! Mom has been teaching herself to do watercolor paintings, so far she has done one of Me and one of Weasley. I think she is really good with the watercolors, I'll have her upload them to my gallery for you guys! (: Hugs, Peatree

Jester here! I hope you are doing well, I am doing pretty good myself! It is very warm here, so I have been going outside for some sunshine! I love going outside. (: Mom and her family are traveling to Pennsylvania next week, which I am not too excited about. But mom is excited, so I guess I am happy for her. They still don't know what they are doing there (Procrastination much?), but they have narrowed down to a few things. I am very excited that is is almost time for me to run for Bird of the Month! I can't wait! Mom is still trying to come up with an awesome campaign, but I know she will find an awesome one for me! (: Hugs, Jester Bean

  Hi Kallie
can you say brrrrrrrr ? It never got much above 60 today - mostly high 50's ! There's even a frost warning tonight - it's coming up on Memorial Day weekend for goodness sake !

Did mom get the insurance people out to the house to see the scene and how it couldn't possibly be her fault ? She'll want to relax and enjoy this weekend . . .

You too ! This is the official start of summer coming up - you need some more boxes ! har har har !

Mom survived the test today - now there's just the written part on June 2. Then that's it for the testing this year. I'll start my Cookie and mom countdown after Monday !

Oh no - Anthony has to find a place ? If worse comes to worst he can always go back to nana's for a while right ? I'm sure she wouldn't mind - it was so helpful to her when he was there . . .

Give everyone my hugs and beaky kisses . . . love Cookie

  Hi Kallie
How can they blame mom when she was the victim of the accident? That doesn't make sense at all. Hopefully when they come look at it, they'll see it your mom's way. If her car got hit, there will be more damage on it.
Today we're in the middle of a cool spell. It's around 50, if that, and breezy. Mom is okay with the cool weather, as long as it warms up by Saturday, which is opening day for the pool.
Today mom had 2 tours, one at 10:10 and one at 12:30, so she had over an hour between. She took a book to the museum to read, so it wasn't so bad. The first tour was PA Natural History, so that was fun with third graders. They had a museum quest after the tour, so mom handed out materials for that when she got done. A quest is like a scavenger hunt in the hall on the sheet. This group stayed in North American and Botany Halls to complete their quest. The second group was another 3rd grade but it was the World of Dinosaurs. We all know how much mom loves doing dinos, so that was a fun tour.
Tonight Aunt Gin is bringing dinner with her, and she and mom will watch a movie here. It's called This is where I leave you, I think, and it should be good.
I hope you are having good weather there, not as cool as it is here, and that you are getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

it was a beautiful day today and after mom finished trimming the forsythia off of the road so the township doesn't come and hack them away she was going to take us outside but as she was dragging all the cut branches she saw the neighbor with his pesticide canister strapped to his back spraying his rocks with the wind blowing it right on our property so that put an end to us getting outside.

  Hi Kallie
i am so sorry they are pulling this on you. mom had a similar incident. mom was driving to her brothers funeral on a highway. she was probably going abut 40 miles an hour which was the speed limit. a teenager pulls out of a gas station onto the highway and smashes into the side of moms car. mom pulls into the gas station and the teenager pleads with mom not to file it with the insurance because he just totaled his moms other car and before that his own car and on that day he was driving his dads car. the kid told mom he would pay cash to fix any damages. mom wasn't thinking clearly because of her brothers death and funeral and said i have to do this the right way and turn it in. plus she didn't know if the kid was lying and didn't want to take any chances. it turns out the kids father was a lawyer and somehow they put a spin on the story that because mom was driving on the highway it was her fault. mom said how could it be my fault when the kid pulled out into traffic and hit the middle of my car. anyway long story short mom couldn't make it to court because of her brother so the kid won and mom got points and had to pay a much higher premium for about 3 or 4 years. it seems you can't count on people doing the right thing and if and when they do you had better appreciate it because to doesn't seem to happen that much.

Poor aunt Rose ! But once the adjuster sees the cars and the accident report, they can't possible think it's her fault . . . I mean, how do you hit some one with the SIDE of your car ? It just doesn't make sense ! She probably needs some Kallie therapy . . . lots of love and snuggles from you will surely help :)

It was supposed to rain today - only it didn't - it was cloudy and overcast till a little after noon time and then the sun came out and it got really warm - near 80 ! Hopefully tomorrow will be the same . . .

Tomorrow is the NYS science exam - mom got everything set up this afternoon and then came home and cooked some noodles and spinach to go with the leftover cornflake chicken. Very soon mom and dad will head out for their evening walk by the river. That means I'll be left in charge of the house. I have a project I'm working on now though - daddy gave me a paper towel roll so I have to chew up enough of it that it'll fit in just the right spot in my cage !

Give mama Rose lots of hugs and beaky kisses from me ! She deserves them ! Leave some for the rest of the flock and family too though ! love Cookie

Last night mom worked a special event at the museum and showed lots of folks around dinosaur hall. It's funny, because at some of the special events, the people invited just want to go to the balcony to eat and drink, while at others, like last night, they are happy to see something special before they go to the balcony. There was live music as well as food and drink for everyone.
Today mom went shopping for flowers again, she says for the last time this year, hahaha. She got her peace rose, her pink clematis, and some scented geraniums with a couple of miniature coral salvia and some streptocarpella for the porch planter. She also bought a new planter, it's a tiny wheelbarrow. She got geraniums, dianthus, and vinca for that. She also moved all the house plants outside for their summer vacation. Our little citrus tree has something green on it. Mom thinks it might be a little orange! So that should take care of the plantings in containers for this year. Now to get the tomatoes and peppers in the ground, and we're ready to take pics to share with you.
I hope you are having a great day. After a quick storm last evening, it's been beautiful here, sunny and warm. I also hope you get lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

My mom loved the sloppy Joe's last night with the chicken she said it was so good and can't wait to have it again.
She finally got that new vacuum and went with the bag less it's hoover and looks like it should work great.It will be nice not to have to deal with those bags anymore.
Only got to 59 today and this evening the wind really picked up and the temp has dropped going down to the 30's tonight. Tomorrow will only be in the 50's again and 30 at night.
I forgot to tell you yesterday how I nipped my mom again when she stopped me from chewing on the wood in the kitchen. I don't know what gets into me sometimes?

How are you today ? I can't believe it's already Monday ! The weekends sure fly by ! Mom came home right after school and made cornflake chicken - enough for tomorrow night too - and might I add, CORN ON THE COB !

It's been grey all day long - and right around noon time it got breezy and chilly - she wished she had a jacket when she went out to get the kids from recess ! Sometime after midnight the rain is supposed to start, so it'll be a gloomy day again tomorrow :(

How's everything there - mom says thanks for Kiddo's picture ! That sure was fast ! She just put up Picabo's from last week, and still has to post this week's songs . . . get with the program mom !

What's up for the long weekend at your house ? Does poor Anthony at least get off Monday ? All the vacationers start invading your quiet little community about this time too, right ? Give mama Rose, nana and all the skins and flock my hugs ! love you - Cookie

It's probably just as well that Shiloh stayed home, if she didn't feel up to all that walking. I'm surprised Nana lasted! She sure is a trouper! Hope your mom gets some time off soon, so she can see to the garden. It's pretty hard work and the longer you postpone it, the harder it is!
Well, you know about best laid plans, right? So mom didn't get to that new Mexican place, as they are closed on Sunday. Instead, they went to Ali Baba's in Oakland for some Middle Eastern food. It was really good, too. There were a couple of graduations and a baccalaureate Mass going on, though, so there was a lot of traffic to contend with.
Today at the center mom had the bunny room again, and she got to release 6 bunnies! She is always happy when it's time to let the animals go home, and they release bunnies on their property because they get too stressed being moved by car anywhere else. Before you ask, there are about 16 acres there so the bunnies have good homes.
After her shift, she went to the nail salon to get a cracked nail repaired. She will be ready for a manicure soon, but not today since she is working a special event at the museum tonight. Mom will be in Dinosaur Hall for 3 hours this evening, showing adults the place and talking about the great collection we have at the Carnegie.
Tomorrow mom and Aunt Renee are going flower shopping again. Hopefully she will find the pink clematis she's looking for, as well as the peace rose. There's only one more long planter to fill, and the porch/patio/yard will be done for this year. All that's left is putting out the fountain.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

it just shows what a trooper Dixie is still wanting to perform even though he is in so much pain from his leg and foot. show business is in his blood. and that spirit is what keeps him going.

i didn't get outside today because the neighbor has been using a jackhammer all weekend. on top of the loud noise their is sickening smell coming from whatever he is doing. i saw mom take Boo Boos cage out to the porch and i did yell about that but at least Boo Boo didn't get to go outside either

if you get a chance their is a terrific speech by a former VP of Citibank on u-tube about animal rights and the environment that is the most eloquent speech i have hear in a while

Hot and sticky here today - so I had another splashy bath - getting mom and the table ALL WET ! Now I'm enjoying my goodnightbird nutriberri . . . it was too hot to cook so mom made some seafood salad and picked up some sandwich rolls - some tomatoes and basil and called it supper . . . then mom and dad went for their walk down by the river. Tons of redwing blackbirds singing to mom tonight !

Tomorrow is only in the 60's . . . and then slowly the temps should head into the low 70's and so far it looks like a nice Memorial Day weekend coming up.

How exciting for Dixie to be able to show off again - he must have enjoyed that ! So must have the guests - if you would only be a good boy, you could have showed off too ! Remember when mom and dad came to see you ? They told me all about your show ! They even showed me the pictures - doesn't seem possible that that was years ago ! Time sure flies ! ! !

I bet Dixie loved doing all the tricks he can still do for your dad's co worker and wife.I bet they are totally won over now with getting a bird.
It's been a pretty nice weekend here with Temps in the 70's. We were pretty gloomy today and got some rain but the sun is out now and it's turned into a beautiful evening.
Yesterday my parronts went over to my mom's parents house around 4:30 for a cookout.They sat outside and ate nice to do now before the bugs get bad.After dinner they built a nice fire in grandpa's little fire kettle thing and chatted away.My parronts didn't get home until a little before 11.When they first left they didn't think they were going to be gone that long but had a very nice time and was I ha to see them when they got home.
Burgers is the only thing my mom has made with the ground chicken.Tonight thanks to your mom mentioning it she's going to make sloppy Joe's with the ground chicken she can't wait to try it.
Hope your having a great day.

  Hi Kallie
Do you have rescues there for birds? Here, to get a bird from a breeder, all you need is money, but to get one from a rescue means getting to know the bird before you bring it home, as well as classes in husbandry and enrichment. Mom always directs folks who want a bird to go to a rescue first. The guy who bred Willie and Peppino does a fantastic job, though.
I hope both Shiloh and Nana get to rest their legs and hips today, and I hope your mom does the same. Eating subs and not doing dishes does not make your mom lazy, it means she finally caught a break from some of the drudge work women always have to do. Let her know you appreciate her today, give her lots of hugs and kisses! Hugs, Falco

that was so good of your mom to take the time our from her busy schedule to show the couple a lot of Dixies tricks. i bet it made mom sort of sad seeing how much Dixie likes to do her act but has such a hard time doing it with her bad foot and leg. getting old sure aint much fun.

its not a giant fountain but more like rocks and a waterfall that is 3 tiers high but only 20 inchesHighX17X17. mom places it right beside the front door plus there is an electrical outlet right there. then when we go out on the small porch we can hear and see it and its very soothing. nothing ever grows in this spot and it fits perfectly. mom can't figure out how to adjust the pump to low so right now the water is really flowing.
not sure if she could get a good picture of it but will try. she still has the bunny from last year who followed mom around the yard from last year and the 2 baby fawns to try and get on the computer. she cent get it to work.

  Hi Kallie
How was your day ? I hope mama Rose got to stay home after all that running around yesterday ! She deserves a day with dad and you guys :)

We woke up to pouring rain - good news for the flowers out on the deck, and for me too ! It meant that daddy couldn't mow the g'parronts lawn and after their visiting they came home early ! Mom made sausage and peppers for supper - of course I didn't get any - but I had some couscous and veges including one of my sugar snap peas - food to play with ! What could be better ?

Tomorrow they'll need to do some marketing - there's almost NOTHING in the cabinets ! Other than that, I'm hoping for a quiet day of play with Cookie time !

Give all in your house my hugs and beaky kisses ! love Cookie

  Hi Kallie
What a busy day for your mom, and having to carry sis's stuff up to her apartment must have been tiring for her, after all that running and shopping. Hope Nana didn't overdo it, or Shiloh either. It sounds like both of them had a good day out, though. Your mom must be exhausted, and we hope she can stay home today and spend time with all of you, just relaxing and maybe reading or something.
Today and tomorrow mom is off! What a good break for her. (They are short handed at the center tomorrow, so she might break down and go up there for an hour or so.) She did this deliberately to give herself time to plant. This afternoon she is going out with her sister to a local nursery to finish buying annuals for the planters that aren't done yet. She is thinking of buying a pink clematis if one is available, as well as a new rose, maybe a peace rose. She has always loved the colors of the peace rose.
We just saw Kiddo's announcement on the calendar page about the Renaissance Faire for the June Milonga, how exciting that's going to be! I can't wait to see the costumes. I hope you are having a great spring day with lots of sun, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kallie
it turned into a nice day today but mom never got me outside. she picked up a few things at the grocery store and stopped off at the plant nursery to buy a few plants. things are really expensive so mom didn't buy much. when she got home and was putting the groceries away the ups guy arrived in a u=haul truck and had the big fountain mom had ordered on amazon.com. mom had a heck of a time getting it out of the box and assembled but its just the right size for where she wanted to put it. then after mom put it in the spot it needed some plants so mom had to dig up some forget- -me- not plants that had traveled on their own and were growing under the hedge. after she planted them they wilted but mom is hoping by tomorrow with plenty of water they will perk up. mom was covered in mosquitoes while she was working. then after all that the guys came to mow the lawn. after thy were done it was time for dinner. it was suppose to rain all day and this evening but instead a raindrop fell here and there and didn't do anything. mom doesn't feel like spending much money on plants since the mom deer will probably teach her twins to eat everything

HAPPY TGIF DAY

love Cori

  Hi Kallie
Great pictures of you with that bone epically the one that's in your gallery boy do you look mad at who ever was taking the picture.
Sure sounds like your mom had a busy day yesterday. Hey thanks for the idea of sloppy Joe's with the ground chicken my mom is always trying to think of something new to make with the ground chicken she buys.
We had rain this morning then it got pretty humid.It was gloomy all day at least in the afternoon a breeze picked up so it didn't feel as humid anymore.
This weather has been so back and forth my mom woke up with a headache this morning then got to work and one of her supervisors had a bad headache too.At least my mom is feeling better now.Shes glad to have the weekend off.Think her plan is to get all her errands and stuff done tomorrow so Sunday she can stay home all day.Think we have strong storms in the forecast for Sunday so it's a good day to stay close to home.Have a goodnight buddy.

  I don't think I told you
how much I love the picture with your chicken bone ! You wouldn't want to share would you ?

Hooray for Friday ! Mom thought this week would never end ! It's a little cloudy now, but most of the day was nice, warm and sunny - after the chilly start that is ! Another early morning in the 40's - mom never knows what to put on for school on days like this !

Did mom get all her errands done ? How's nana and Shiloh doing ? Sounds like Shiloh is healing nicely - at least she can get out now ! And Anthony ? Is he finally getting used to his job and its long hours ? We think about all of you and how busy mama Rose is trying to hold it all together ! Give her and everyone else our love ! Cookie

  Hi Kallie
I bet you will miss Celine, won't you? Peepers, too, but Celine more. It's wonderful that sis got out on her crutches, and was able to do so much in one day. HOpe that insurance business is taken care of soon, so mom can have her car back in one piece again.
Mom had the bunny room to clean at the center today, YAY! Except that there are about 75 bunnies in there, that is. That's a lot of cleaning and feeding. The staff took care of intubating and feeding the littlest ones, so mom just had to feed ones who were eating bunny salad. Litters share the same cage, so there were only about 15 or so cages. One litter had 10 little ones in it! When mom finished in there, she told the staff they would need more apples, carrots, and greens for the bunnies eating salad, so they sent her to the store. She bought a few pounds of each, as well as some berries for the birds, and some distilled water to wash everything in for the bunnies. By that time, her shift was well over, so she came home and sat in the sun for an hour. Now we are getting our blogs done, and later we will get to go out, too. Mom doesn't like us in the noonday sun, but after 3 it's still pretty nice here.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of fresh air, sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kallie
mom thinks she has some good news about my health condition. as you know most of the feathers on my wings have a red blush to them which is a very bad health sign. i never molted at all this spring so i look the same as i did last year. mom was checking my feathers on my wings and noticed very tiny feathers growing in that are all green. they are growing in at the base of the red blush feathers. mom is hoping when i molt next the red blush feathers will fall out and these new ones will be big enough to take over. also i don't seem to have the tiny red blushfeathers on my neck and head anymore. there are a few under my wings and some on my tummy but not nearly as many as before. the feathers with the blue on them don't seem to be affected. its taken me 3 years to get to this point and mom wasn't sure if i would make it. keep your toeses crossed that i will grow my green feathers back

love Cori

  Hi Kallie
Other than when the kids returned to the classroom and everybody had to listen to all the adventures, it was a better day. The kids got through the day, mom got through the day - even the outdoor recess ! It was another high pollen, but sunny and only about 70 today - perfect spring day :)

When she came home I had a nice bath and supper. Now I'm playing with a piece of rope - love that stuff ! I'm trying to figure out how to wrap it around the bars of my cage and prevent the door from closing ! Wouldn't that be great ?

Daddy just tossed a small steak on the grill and mom popped a couple baked taters in the microwave - as soon as daddy finishes cleaning up, they'll go for their walk down by the river. I keep telling mom we need to get me a stroller so I can go too, but she says there's lots of dogs down there and I might get spooked . . .

How is everyone today ? We know tomorrow is mama Rose's errand day - what is she driving ? Or can she still drive hers ? What will she drive while hers is being fixed ? Give her our love - everyone else too - and all the flock too ! Hugs from Cookie

  Hi Kallie
I hope once the appraiser gets there, that the car gets fixed right away. It must be hard on mom to have one more thing to deal with. If there's a Lowe's or Home Depot there, they should have mailboxes for Nana to look at.
That bone looks tasty, did you like it?
Mom had 2 tours again today, and she liked both groups even though they were first and second grades. They had enough chaperones to herd them and keep them focused, which made it easier.
After a stop at Trader Joe's on the way home, she got back to us and our blogs. She will walk the dogs when she finishes the blogs, we think. Tonight is cage cleaning night again. I know, she just pressure washed the cages, but you know how we all are, they all need wiped down again.
We posted the pics of the fox and the owlets with Martha on our pages, so everyone can see them. Hope you like them.
I hope also that you are having a good day there, and getting springlike temps. It's in the mid 60s here, which is good for walking and working outside, but not good enough for us to go out. Get lots of loving today! Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kallie
Wow, that's all good news! Except for Shiloh not wanting to go through with the second surgery. Maybe she'll be okay without it though, or if it gets too bad, she'll decide it's worth the recuperation time.
Good for Nana, taking a shower by herself, and being okay with cleaning a little and not the whole house.
Today mom had 2 tours at the museum, one about animals, and one 3 cultures tour in the anthropology section. It was a fun day, and she didn't have to think about if she had already said something to the group, since the topics were so different. Tonight mom went to a baby bird class at the center. The volunteers have to attend classes every year for the baby care, because sometimes things change from year to year, and it never hurts to have a refresher. Some of the diets have changed recently. This year they are also using different nests for baby birds. Mom is going to crochet some as soon as she has a free moment or 2. They used to use those plastic tomato or strawberry baskets, stuff them with tissue, and make nests, but the knitted and crocheted ones are so much nicer. They are soft, round, and come in a variety of sizes from hummingbird to crow.
It was really cool here today, didn't get above 50, and we had clouds all day long. Tomorrow it's supposed to be near 70 again, though. I hope you had a good day and got lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  WHAT A DAY !
Mom should have stayed in bed today ! The kids went to gym and being a nice day, the gym teacher took them outside. The pollen count must have been so high . . . one little boys passed out, there were two asthma attacks and lots of drama - kids were crying, coughing, choking . . . the ambulance was called - SIX paramedics showed and 2 police officers ! Turns out of the fifteen in the nurses office only the three were legitimate - the rest were either scared sick or out for the drama . . . in all 2 ended up in the hospital, 1 went home for her nebulizer and 2 went home cause they're whiners. The rest were sent back to class after their oxygen levels were checked so they could complain all day about how it wasn't fair that they had to stay in school.

It's downright chilly today ! In fact, we're under a frost warning for tonight - believe it or not ! 85 yesterday, frost tonight . . . jeeesh !

Other than that, it's been a quiet uneventful day (LOL) Hope everything is fine at your house. That's good that nana calls mom after her shower - I bet it eases mama Rose's mind - Give her and everyone else my hugs and beaky kisses . . . love Cookie
