After Weasley and Hermione bonded, I decided that I wanted a more hands on bird. After begging my parents, they told me that I could get a conure. I searched and searched to find one, I was on Craigslist 24/7, refreshing the page! One night, I saw an ad for a Pineapple Green Cheek Conure. My mother emailed the woman who was selling her, and after chatting for awhile, it was decided that she would come home with me. She came home on December 22nd 2010, and it was love at first sight.

  Hello Peatree~
I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday! We are preparing for the Puppy Bowl. Mom, McKenzie and I checked out the line up and have picked a few favorites. I think I'm going the cheer for the Ruff team! The Fluff team is cute too! Hard to pick sides when there are that many cute puppies! I think it is just awesome that they find forever homes for all these dogs!!
Not much else going on for today. Mom has been filing all the papers we went through this week and put all of dad's mail into a box so he can go through it when he gets home.
Jennifer came home a little while ago so she'll be here for the Puppy Bowl party too!
Enjoy your day and I hope you get to have a party too ~ Puppy Bowl or Super Bowl or just because it's Sunday!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

I hope the day was great! I took a shower today and it felt good. I had been feeding McKenzie some of my treats and then decided that we both needed to get cleaned up! She started barking at me when I dumped the water on her so I know she really enjoyed it! She got toweled off and I just air dried!
Mom took Jennifer down to visit her dad this morning so I got some quiet time! I got another piece of my hatchday cake after lunch. It was lovely.
The rest of the day was spent chasing puppy and trying to get chores done. We are now going to relax and get my notes done and perhaps watch a movie. It is very rare for mom to have a Saturday night off so we are going to make the most of it!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!

  Hello Peatree~
I hope your day was fabulous! I had a pretty good one. I helped mom go through more papers today! Mom found tax returns from before she was married!!! She has been married for nearly 34 years!hahahahahaha Ian said it was pretty impressive. Mom said it was really bad of her to hang on to stuff that old! It's all shredded and gone now. We do know that McKenzie will bark at the paper shredder! Mom brought her over to it so she knows it's not a scary thing.
Mom made a trip over to the Goodwill and deposited a bunch of stuff! She is very pleased that we got rid of so much stuff! There were things mom didn't even know we had and hopefully someone else will be happy to have them!
Ian took mom to Chipotles for lunch. She loves having salads there. The manager gave them drinks and chips for free since they come in there so often. That was so nice of him!! They have had a lot of bad press lately but mom have never had a bad experience there.
Mom checked her schedule for next week and she is not scheduled until Tuesday night! That means extra days of vacation for her! YAY!! Don't know if that will be the case but it's nice if it is!
I hope you enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It was busy around here. We are still going on with the spring cleaning and the back of the car is now filled with stuff for the Goodwill. Mom will have to drop that stuff off tomorrow so she can put more in there. McKenzie is in the back seat so anything we put there would be chewed up by the time mom got to Goodwill!
The kitchen and the dining room are done and now mom is working on her room. It's slow going since she can only do it when the puppy is taking a nap or at night when she is in her crate. McKenzie is a very curious girl and wants to see everything!
Dad is in Utah and says the weather is nasty. He he one of 28 trucks who are hauling the equipment for a show called Marvel Universe Live. It's got Spiderman and my favorite, Captain America. It's coming to Seattle after Utah but I don't think dad will be hauling the stuff again.
I hope you have a lovely evening! Leaving a vote and a hug too!

I hope you are having a fun day! McKenzie is napping at the moment so I have a chance to get a note out! Who knew that our entire lives would be taken over by one little puppy?? I feel just awful when I can't get by to say hello but there are times when it's non stop around here. I think the puppy is trying to set a new worlds record for destruction of furniture! It is not going over well with mom!hehehehe
Mom is helping with the toy clearance at work. It's that time of year again! Actually they are about 2 weeks early with it this year. Soon all the pool toys will be out and people will be walking by dreaming of warmer weather and lots of sunshine.hehehehehe HECK! Easter will be here before you know it! Well, it will be in the stores before you know it. We have always enjoyed winter but this year we can't wait for Spring and some sunshine and long walks around the lake. It makes for a sleepy puppy and more time for me on BC!
I sure hope you have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been okay here so far but it's just starting!hahahahahaha
Gloomy day but I can't complain since so many places are having very cold temps.
Mom is getting some laundry done and we just had snack time. I had my apple and a couple of almonds, Merlin had some of the Greenie treats and McKenzie had a Blue Dog bakery cookie. Mom says it's like a daycare around here!!
McKenzie was in a very chewy mood this morning and tried to chew on the legs of the coffee table. Mom redirected her to a toy but that didn't last long. She then tried to chew the lever on the bottom of the computer desk chair! She is tenacious! Right now she is trying to kill her stuffed reindeer toy.
You enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

I hope you are having an awesome day! It is quite here at the moment because mom bought these chew rolls for McKenzie. They are suppose to be a safe alternative to the rawhide things but McKenzie polished off the first one in 5 minutes. We are researching more safe alternatives that might last longer than 5 minutes. She does like to chew and I have a feeling my peace and quiet is going to be short lived!
Not much going on otherwise. Looks like football season is over for us! We had a great year and the Seahawks will always be winners to me! I just love those guys and we have the most awesome mascot in the entire world!heheheheh Panthers looked pretty good. I wonder if this will be their year?

I hope you are having a wonderful day! We are doing laundry and mom has been cleaning out the kitchen. She is giving her Kitchen Aid mixer to a friend at work. Mom has had it for 8 years and used it once! It sure did free up a lot of space in the pantry!
We have to clean out George and Gracie's tank and mom wants to clean the rug in the hallway. McKenzie barks at the vacuum and the cleaner still so Ian will take her out on the balcony while mom does that. She seems to like it out there. She sits in on of the chairs and watches the world go by!

I hope you are having a fantastic day! Mine has been pretty good. I have been on puppy duty most of the day. It sure is a hard job. Everything is taking so much longer since mom has to stop every few seconds to chase after the puppy! It takes a long time just to get a note done these days!
It's been a clear and pretty day but it was cold. We just hung out at home today and did some cleaning. There is a lot more to do since McKenzie is a bird puppy! She loves chewing paper and cardboard! Yep! Part bird!
It's our weekend but I have no idea what is planned. I hope we get to take some time and watch a movie. There's lots of new things at the Redbox.
You enjoy the rest of your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Lots of stuff to get done around but mom promised I could have BC time today! I feel awful when we run out of time and I don't get around to see how every bird is doing! Just wish I had something interesting to share!

I hope you having a wonderful day! We are still in the midst of cleaning out the storage room. Dad has all sorts of junk in there and I do mean junk! Who needs 4 boxes of old wires and plugs???? Not mom!hehehehehehe She found plugs for things that have been gone for years!
Mom has to stop by the market later to get some bread. Only bread left in the house was the rye that Ian got for his lunches. It does not make good peanut butter toast so I had my apple first this morning.
McKenzie was sleeping in the dining room when a truck came by and put on his jake break! It makes a terrible noise and made her jump up and start barking! They are not suppose to use them in the city but they do all the time. Guess they never get caught so they keep doing it. I know she will get use to all the noises around here someday. I did and Merlin doesn't care anyway since he is a cat an thinks he is above it all!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect!

  Hello Peatree~
I hope you had a fun day!! Mine wasn't bad. Mom took a bunch of stuff over to the Goodwill and then took McKenzie to Petco. Ian gave us a gift card for Christmas so she got to go spend it! Merlin got a lovely new food bowl since McKenzie broke his last one. McKenzie picked out some new toys. Mom tried to get her a boo boo dog which is a long stuffed dog, but she didn't want that. She picked out a reindeer that squeaks and a bear that has a rope body. They were clearance from Christmas. It's what she wanted and she has been carrying the reindeer around since she got home! She got some cookies from the cookie bar and more Science Diet puppy food. I got nothing!!!! Mom has another card to use for me but I don't really need anything right now. There was a beautiful Golden Cap Conure there. He was $650 and mom couldn't afford that! I don't think we need anymore animals around here! Mom said he was a really gorgeous bird.
McKenzie has to go to the vet on Friday. She has to get the 2nd booster shots. They only give them a tiny bit at a time. Since we don't know if she ever had shots before she came to live with us, they have to give the shot over 3 months. I wonder what she is going to think of our vet! I hope she gets to see Dr. Jennifer, my vet, cause she is awesome!
I hope you have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

  Hello Peatree~
I hope you are having a spectacular day! I have not gotten many notes done in the past few days. I'm sure every bird knows what has been taking up the typist time~or should I say who!!! It's like having a second job. She seems to like to get into everything! We are slowly getting her use to the schedule and she is doing great sleeping in the crate at night. Mom moved it out to the living room for the nights she is not home. She discovered the living room window and school buses yesterday. That kept her occupied for half an hour. We are working on "mom and Merlin are not chew toys" right now!
Mom has met more neighbors in the past 2 weeks than the entire 6 years we have lived here. Everyone seems to have a dog here. Not like when Mandy was out walking. McKenzie is learning to socialize with other dogs but gets so distracted that she forgets why she is out there.
We had snow on Sunday but it only lasted for the day. Just fine by me. It was slushy the next day but the roads were taken care of so the driving wasn't bad. Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night so if it wants to snow again, it can! Don't think it will though. Never snows when you want it too!

I hope you are having a fabulous 1st day of the year! Clear as a bell here but was only 20 degrees this morning!
We has a quiet evening. There were some fireworks that started around 8 pm. Mom was out walking McKenzie and there was a big boom but mom told her it was okay and just kept walking! McKenzie did not freak out! She did, however, bark loudly at a grocery store shopping cart someone left on the walkway! Mom took her over to it and let her sniff it! I guess everything is scary if you have never seen it before!
We went to bed rather early and mom put the radio on for us so we could listen to classical not booms. I know! We are a boring lot but it was nice that mom did not have to work and we could spend the evening together!
Dad was back in New Mexico on his way to Texas. He is sending mom a picture of the truck stop where he found McKenzie. It will be interesting to see where she came from.
I hope the day is perfect and I hope 2016 it the most wonderful year any of us have ever had!!

Someone besides me seems to like ripping newspaper so there is a lot of that to pick up! Mom has already done it a few times.

I hope your day was wonderful! Haven't been getting too many notes done lately! It's all the puppy's fault! She is one wild girl! Mom and dad are starting to think she will never get why they take her out so much! She is still a baby and it looks like it's going to take more time to get her to understand potty training. She is determined to make Merlin her best friend! Mom keeps telling her that cats do not play well with others!hehehehehe
Mom is off tonight and goes back on Tuesday night. That is just Monday off since she starts at 11 pm so she will have to pick another day off. It gets confusing since she starts at 11 instead of midnight. It's extra time off for her so she is just fine with it! They are having a huge storage event at the store mom works at so things have not gotten much quieter for her. It will slow down soon!
I'm not sure I mentioned this, but the reason dad went out shopping on Christmas Eve was because he got mom Seahawks License plates for Christmas! He had to wait until she was done with the car because they have to have the temporary paper on the back until the plates show up! It would have ruined the surprise if mom had seen the temporary! I think dad did good!

  Hi Peatree
T'was the night before Christmas, when all through the tree,
the birdies and parrots were all filled with glee,
The clutches were snuggled in their down feathered nests,
while vision of flight, sent them all soaring west.

Fresh millet sprays had been hung with great care,
with hopes that "Old Scarlet" (Parrot St. Nick) soon would be there.
The Conures and Amazons had all settled down,
but those crazy cockatoos were still hopping around.

When high in the tree tops, a ruckus arose,
I thought I should check, just to see what goes.
Peeking through branches, leaves lit by the moon,
I thought I was dreaming it looked just like noon!

When what to my wondering eyes should there be,
but a flock of eight Grey's with Red Tails shining landing in the next tree.
Gliding behind, holding reins in his beak,
I spied the red bird, with a blush on his cheek.

He whistled and squawked, calling each one by name,
buoyed by a breeze, as closer they came.
Now Talon, now Josey, now Dayo and Ana Grey,
on Corky, on Misty, on Gilda and Gracie.

To the top of the palms, to the top of trees tall,
now fly away, fly away, fly away all!
I watched as they circled the green jungle maze,
and thought for a second I'd lost sight, I was in such a daze!

But, soon they appeared, drawing a basket behind,
which was filled with new toys of the bright, shiny kind.
Back to my branch I climbed mighty quick,
I'd heard of Old Scarlet, surely this was no trick!

He carefully perched by an old snoring grey,
while I fretted and wondered if he'd get scared away.
He wasn't even distracted when the parakeet sneezed.
He hung the new whirlygigs, sighed and looked pleased.

Standing proud and quite stately, he filled me with trust;
but I felt ashamed, his feathers were covered with cockatoo dust.
He paused, just a moment, fluffed and preened in a stoop,
turned around slowly, saying "At least it's not poop."

Then he laughed out loud--like a real human being.
I blinked my eyes twice, at what I was seeing.
He picked up a peanut and tossed it my way.
"Here's a small Christmas treat. Don't get spoiled, okay?"

He strutted back to the basket, put a strap round each wing,
chirped at his flock, who started to sing.
Their tones were so perfect, they were magically dear.
I was sure it was Memorex or a choir quite near.

The melody lingered, for a moment or two,
but I caught one last glimpse, before they flew.
His eyes were so merry, twinkling with impish delight.
His charming ways had brightened this long Christmas night.

As upward they soared, toward the golden round moon,
I heard every word, he joyfully crooned.
"Merry Christmas to all, peace, joy and cheer.
Be good little birdies. I'll see you next year!"

Merry Christmas!! Can't believe it's already here!! I hope tomorrow is just wonderful for you!

Dad has gone off Christmas shopping. Yes! I know! It's Christmas Eve. Dad never goes shopping before Christmas Eve. He says it's his Christmas tradition. I think dad just like to put things off until the last minute!

I am starting to think that McKenzie is a bird dog!! She tried to chew the coffee table and loves to chew boxes! I swear I did not teach her any of this! It's all coming naturally so that is why I think she might be part bird! Cool!hehehehehe

Mom rented Mission Impossible and Pan from the Redbox so we will be watching those later. Mom and I are going to watch Pan since she has no interest in seeing Mission Impossible. Popcorn and a movie while we get laundry done! Great way to spend Christmas Eve!

I hope your day is perfect and that you have a great Christmas!

  Hello Peatree~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I'm sorry I didn't get around much yesterday. It was just a busy day with puppy duty. It is slowly getting calmer around here but I have to tell you that Merlin is just such a drama king! I think he is a bit jealous of the puppy! I just sit in my play cage and watch the two of them! As long as McKenzie does not come near my cage, we will get along just fine. I still have a cardboard wall around the bottom of my cage to keep me from biting her. We are never alone, not even for a second. If mom has to go to another room she takes McKenzie with her.
Only 2 more work nights for mom and then it's 2 days off! She wishes she could say the Christmas rush will be over then but they are having a huge sale on the 26th and then all the storage stuff happens. Once the Christmas stuff is gone, they put storage boxes and baskets up in Seasonal. The Christmas stuff will go quickly since they are marking it 75% off the day after Christmas.
I posted some pictures of McKenzie, Merlin and I in my gallery. I hope you enjoy them!
Enjoy your day too!

I hope you are enjoying the day! I am toasty warm in my play cage having a snack and chatting with mom!
McKenzie did well in the crate last night. It's all wire so she can see out. Mom got her bed in there and gave her the parrot toy. She covered the back with a blanket so that the nightlight wouldn't shine on her. She fussed for a bit but then went to sleep.
Wish potty training was going as well but it hasn't even been one day yet. We did have to get the carpet cleaner out last night.
McKenzie pulled Merlin's bowl off the table and broke it. Mom will replace it with something in stainless steel. She sure did figure out what the kitchen was for pretty quickly! I'd say she is a smart dog.
Merlin does not like her very much! He already tried to whack her but mom stopped him. Mom assures me that they will get use to each other eventually.
I think she is very cute but if she comes near the cage, I will bite her. I do have to defend my cage you know! There is a big piece of cardboard wrapped around the bottom of my cage so that I can not get to her if she comes to visit!
Still cold here and is suppose to rain until Christmas!! Christmas is only 6 days away now! Seems like the time just flew by.
Have an awesome day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Peatree~~
I hope you had a great day!
She's here!! McKenzie is home! Oh my goodness! She has been non-stop motion since she got home. She barked at me and tried to stick her nose in my play cage and then started barking at Merlin. Merlin ran off to hide in the bedroom. I climbed down to give her a bite! Mom is going to wrap cardboard around the bottom of my play cage so that there are not accidents.
Mom has not sat down since McKenzie got here! Should have seen mom try to eat lunch!hahahaha McKenzie would trot over to my cage and mom would go get her. McKenzie would sit on her bed for a little while and then trot back over! I think she is in awe of me!!
Mom and Dad had to go down to Petsmart to pick up a crate. If they don't lock her up tonight no one is going to get any sleep!
She grabbed the turtle food and took off with that and then grabbed the box of turtle filters. She found Merlin's rope and was trying to chew that up! I think I will be saying
"McKenzie No" very soon!hahahahaha This should all be very interesting!
Star Wars was good and they enjoyed it. Next one won't be out for a year and a half. Ian and Jennifer already want to go see it again.
I hope your day was awesome!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Peatree~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Did we tell you thank you for the card? If not, Thank You. It's beautiful! Mom loves cards the best. It is, as always, very special!
Love you tree! Ian finally put ornaments on ours. He is the only one who has a lot of ornaments since mom had been buying him one every year since he was born. He'll get #33 this year! It's a bunch of Star Wars, Godzilla, Batman...Geek stuff! There are some Hello Kitty ornaments up there just to make the tree look pretty!
I am sorry for not getting around much the last few days. We are preparing for the new puppy McKenzie who will be home tomorrow. Have not had a puppy for a long time so we are trying to puppy proof the place. Not easy since we don't really know what she is going to try to get into. Mom made a wall out of a cardboard box and put it around the computer so she can't get to any of those cords. She will be supervised all the time so there will not be any disasters.
She and dad are in central Oregon right now and dad told mom McKenzie is just fascinated with all the trees. If she likes trees then she came to the right place to live!
Star Wars premier tonight! I'll be in solitary until they get back! Mom added another toy and she'll be sure that I have plenty of snacks.
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's spectacular!
love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

It is hot here and sunny. The renovation continues so both our houses are in disarray! They are supposed to pour the concrete floor next week. In the meantime, we are living in the casita and it is okay! Lots of close time with my parronts!
I know you have been good for Santa Bird and you will get lots of treats and toys! I have been good too! Picabo has been getting into things so he is getting a stocking of coal, i think!
Happy Thursday! And enjoy your new home!

  Hi Peatree
Happy House Warming ... so happy to hear that all of you are home now.
As for boxes, we still have some around. Mom needs some shelves built with storage below ... so this project is on hold for now.
We are finally done mailing everything out! Now, mom should have more time to play ball with me. It's still sunny and 85 for a couple more days. But, on Friday we will have rain and on Saturday, it's time to put on the UGG boots ... only 67 degrees!

Come visit me, Derby Farms, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  Hi Peatree
Glad your all moved in to your new house!
We are back!! Mom took the computer to get it checked out so we were computer less for a while. It is working but our usb’s arent so mom will be computer looking soon and knows what she wants but the big thing is finding it. That might take a while. Tonight after mom and I came out from mom getting her bath I heard and saw dad cracking nuts. Now I never leave mom for dad but he had nuts ya know? Sure didn’t take me long to be his buddy. Oh yes he did share some with me too but then he said we both had enough and put the jar away. Yep that same jar I keep knocking off the coffee table! Oh yea mom added more to the jar so now its real full. Of course when she goes somewhere then she takes the nuts out of that jar and slightly cracks the nut before she rolls it up in a paper plate. I am getting pretty good at getting that paper plate open too. “No matter how full a fid can be there is always room for nuts.” Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Come visit me, Gus- & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  ahhhhhhhhhhh . . . such a pretty tree !
Believe it or not, we woke up to 58 degrees ! ! Maybe we should color Easter eggs instead of decorating the tree ! Although me and mom don't have to say that - our tree is done and we finished wrapping last night :) All that's left to do is the baking - and that's on the agenda for the weekend ! But it is like being in Florida with you !

Today is mom's long hump day. And it's getting tough cause the kids are getting really excited about the holiday and vacation ! Me too ! I can count on my talons how many days are left - my only problem is how to count the half day next Wednesday !

I'm so happy you're about settled in your new house for Christmas :) Have a great Tuesday :) ho ho ho ! Love Cookie who's trying very hard to be good for SantaBird is watching !

  Heya, Miss Peatree!
YIPPIE! So glad to hear that Dobby and Paris are fast friends, and so glad you are in your new home! That is awesome! Love the picture of you looking at the tree, too!!

First, let me thank you so much for stopping by with your vote! Mom is feeling better by still has some chills every now and then. But at least the sweaty stuff stopped! Hate to get my wing feathers all messed up!

Hope you enjoy this story as much as Mom and I and Lizzie did!

In Search of Dragon Stew by Arlene Longstreth, with collaboration by DJ Zalac

Once upon a time there was a kingdom that used to be full of dragons. As time passed, many of the dragon children moved to other lands, as is the wont of most creatures. They all wanted to make their own fame and fortunes in far off lands, and of course, get away from mom and dad to do just that. Well, as you might guess, after a long long time, there was only one remaining dragon in the land of the dragons. He was a young one who had stayed home to take care of his ailing parents. In caring for his parents, Mortimer the dragon learned many skills that would serve him for life after they were gone, too.

The king who ruled that land had always heard the stories of his ancestors who had hunted dragons, much the way huntsmen in his time hunted for deer and rabbit to fill his menu with meat. He knew dragons were becoming sparse, and he was determined to have a dragon meal at least once. He kept dreaming of dragon ribs, chicken fried dragon, dragon steaks, but most of all he wanted dragon stew. He had heard legends about how great that tasted.

After thinking long and hard about it, the king sent out a challenge, and asked for chefs from all over his kingdom to come to the castle with their dragon recipes. Chefs arrived from all over the place. There were fancy Cordon Bleu chefs, with some fabulous recipes, but none of them was for dragon stew. There were some famous Italian chefs, but while their recipes sounded luscious, there was no mention of dragon in any of them. The chefs from England came with all kinds of recipes for bland, boiled meats, but again, no dragons, although they did have recipes for griffons and unicorns. The American chefs came with tons and tons of chili and BBQ recipes, but not one of them contained dragon meat! What was the king to do?

Stay tuned for the next installment tomorrow!

Wing hugs coming atcha!
Your buddy,

  Hi Peatree
What a nice pic! you look so sweet.
Mom has been having a problem with the desktop computer since last night, and can't figure out what's wrong. It's a good thing we have this laptop, right? It allows her to clear her email and get on BC for us birdies.
Mom was at the monthly docent meeting today and they got more training in Egypt. She learned about colors on the temple walls, inside and out, and how they are restoring them. They walked through the hall, too, and for the first time mom noticed how colorful some of the stelae and lintels are. Of course, the colors are all faded now, but you can still see blues, reds, and yellows.
After the training, they had the holiday brunch, and there was a ton of food. Mom thinks she won't have to eat for another few days, hahaha. Her pumpkin/cranberry/walnut bread went over well again. Thanks Aunt Rose!!
I hope you are having a wonderful day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi, Peatree
Congratulations on finally getting moved into the new house. Hopefully won't take too long for the rest of the birdhouses to get set up. Know takes awhile to unpack boxes and arrange things but as you say most important is that everyone is together.

So wonderful that Dobby and Paris are getting along. Always fun to have a buddy.

We'll check your page for new pics.

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