  Hi Raffi
Happy Easter!!

I had an adventure last night! I haven't gone after Dad in quite a while in order to lull him into a false sense of security. He always peeks in to my room when Mom is in there with me, and he chats with her. I am OK, unless she chats back. Well, last night she did, and then the foolish man made his mistake. Instead of backing out of my room as usual, he turned around to leave. I was on him in a heartbeat and knocked his baseball cap right off as he ran down the hall. He has a ponytail which I was hanging from. I kept trying for his ear, but he kept shaking that darned pony tail. Since Mom came right after us, by then she caught up and swept me up. Since I didn't succeed in biting Dad and never even considered biting Mom, I didn't get a time out. So my only punishment was the disappointment of failure. Next time.....

I am having a greyt time today. I already got to go out for my sunbath, and I watched while my mom fed the gardenia tree. I squawked instructions the entire time, so she would do it right. Then we came back in to read, and when Dad poked his head in? Well, that was as close as he came! Guess I will get the respect I deserve from that man for a while now (till he forgets again).

  Hello Raffikki~
I hope you are having the most wonderful Easter ever! Things got busy around here so I have to keep it short today!
We are cooking a ham but we are not really going to have a sit down dinner since mom and Ian are working. Dad is in Montana somewhere! Everyone will eat when they can!

Mom finally got herself an MP3 player. Her's broke months ago and she just can't stand the "Leisure Suit Larry Lounge" music anymore! She found all the music files and started loading songs on the MP3 but when she looked, the songs were not there! It took my genius mom about half and hour to realize that Jennifer had her MP3 player plugged in also so mom put all that music on Jennifer's MP3 player! Boy is she going to be surprised!hahahahahahaha Mom is such a dork!!

Happy Easter!!

  Happy Easter Raffi
It's Blue and Jewel.
Yesterday dad went outside and cleaned up the back yard. He worked for a few hours and now it looks like a vacant lot instead of the Amazon. When he came in we said, "You're not our dad! Our dad doesn't have a dark tan!" Well, after he took a shower and washed all the dirt off, he was our dad.
Then mom and dad made deviled eggs. Well, they TRIED to make deviled eggs. All the eggs broke apart so dad put everything into the food processor and made egg salad. He bought some bagel chips to spread the egg salad on so there could be some appetizers for today's Easter dinner. He also bought a tub of coleslaw and a tub of potato salad and ordered 24 pieces of fried chicken, which he'll pick up today. Mom's parronts are coming over for Easter dinner.
After mom and dad cleaned up the huge mess from the egg salad, dad installed the new igniter in the oven and now the oven works like new. "Yeaay Dad!"
We are not in lockdown today so we can have a fun Easter, too.
Hope your Easter is fantastic.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

  Hi, Raffikki
Doing a single round of crochet around the edge of the finished baby blanket will be quick and look fine. Trying to add a knit one will take longer as one would have to p/u stitches in order to do it. Mom's used this technique when adding a lacy cap sleeve on sleeveless tops she's made in the past, but would be very time consuming to do it on a blanket.

Our mom's sis has a large magnifiying glass that is used when she is doing needlepoint. Some of the canvasses are very fine and would cause a lot of eye strain without the magnification. Know that there's ones can wear around the neck for small handheld projects.

Yup, we heard deep voiced furball and knew to look for a big critter. Mom said it was a gorgeous dog and eggstremely well behaved. Think it was there for a shot as it was taken to the back and returned quickly.

Mom took Pearl out of our carrier to get the torture treatment first. Silver screamed pretty much the entire time and pacing back and forth trying to see if Pearl was all right. Pearl flew around a couple of times before landing on the vets head. Didn't take long for mom to get him and after being weighed was toweled and eggamined and then groomed. When it was Silver's turn Pearl was too shocked to make much noise. Is that being drama kings? Do you say things when you go or do you just scream in protest and indignation?

Happy Easter to all! Wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Raffikki
I was trying to blog you and a couple others at the Milonga. The puter wasn't nice to me tonight. I finally gave up!
I can't believe that Lupe is gone. He was a beautiful parrot. I wonder if they had removed his toe if he would still be with us? It just wouldn't stop bleeding, so very sad.
UPDATE: Blue’s (#54066) stitches will be removed on Monday. Her side is very tender and she’s using her right leg very carefully. Please keep her in your prayers.
I wish every bird and family a very HAPPY EASTER. Let’s hope this starts some warm weather.

and Raffi get all the things that Momma Rose has set up for them to color all the Easter Eggs with! They are so eggcited to be able to color the eggs all different colors! Momma Rose has six different cups set up on the table with six different colors in them for the boys to color all the eggs with and a little carton to put the eggs in to finish drying! Here you go,she tells Raffi and Dixie!You have red,blue,green yellow and purple and orange to work with! And as soon as you're done I'll show you how to paint little designs on the eggs too! Dixie and Raffi take their seats at the table and Momma Rose puts a long bib around them so they don't get the dye all over their feathers in case they drip some of it!Dixie and Raffi have so much fun dipping their eggs in all the different colors to make more colors!Momma Rose can't believe her eyes when she comes back in the room an hour later to see how they're doing!There are red and purple eggs,blue and yellow eggs,green and purple eggs,orange and pink eggs!Raffi and Dixie sure are very artistic and they are so enjoying all the egg coloring fun!
I've been holding my left leg up high in the air today and Mom is a little concerned about me now! She has to go to Easter Vigil in a little while and I may be going with her and staying under her coat so she can keep and eye on me. Oh Raffi you do make it so much better for me!Just being here with me everyday keeps my mind off the hurt that it gives me! I couldn't have asked for a better BFF to spend my time with!

  Hi Raffi
Growling might be a good thing to do, they sure don't care if I sound pitiful and cry!
Mom made our Easter bread yesterday, which is pretty much an all day affair. There are so many eggs in it, it takes forever to rise. She also did the hard custard, so it's in the fridge. She decided to do deviled eggs and dye the egg whites this year, so they are in the fridge as well. This way, people will eat them and she won't end up with a dozen hard boiled eggs. Last night she found a fish fry at a local church, so that's where she got dinner. It wasn't as good as the place she usually goes, though.
Today mom worked the Easter Egg Hunt at the museum. Guess where they put her? Yep, Bird Hall with a trainee. It was fun, the kids were so excited and the touchables were a hit, too. Everyone who stopped got a plastic egg with an owl shaped eraser inside.
Now mom is making the wedding soup for tomorrow. All in all it's going to be a good dinner, we think. We will get a sample of pasta and veggies, and maybe some salad out of it. Falco won't eat any, but the rest of us will enjoy the treats. Hope you are having a good day, warm, sunny, and filled with love. Happy Easter! Hugs, Willie

It's Blue and Jewel.
Good news. Mom's money has been returned. Mom and dad spent about two hours at the bank. Mom had to open a new account. and get a new check card. Today, when dad checked the accounts, the money was back. The bank said that they get eight to ten PayPal complaints a day. They don't even bother to call PayPal, they just return the money.
The new part for the oven came yesterday, too. So today dad will fix the oven.
Hope your day was good.

  Hi Raffi
Our mom initially learned to knit as a preteen by her mom. She knit a bit but didn't really take a serious interest in it until her late teens and mostly taught herself how to do cables, lace, bobbles, etc. She dabbled in cross stitch and embroidery too, but found it mostly too lil to work with the tiny thread and needles.

Hmmmm, think when mom crocheted a simple border only did one or two rows? Not much as she didn't want to detract from the knitting just needed enough there to keep it from curling. Your mom could knit a lil swatch and try to crochet a border around it to get the feel of it. Basically just pull the yarn thru the loop, go to the next loop, pull yarn thru, and so on. Very similar to putting a dropped stitch back. Just use a similar size crochet hook as the knitting needle.

Think there were 4 furballs in the waiting room? Most were small/med size but one was a huge chocolate lab type with a very deep voice as we'd heard him barking when we were still in with the vet.

Our Easter forecast is for more spring like we've been having so we're all set.

  Hi Raffikki
People up here don't dress up for anything. It's sad for mom who loves to dress up. The parronts have been up here for 22 long years (as mom says). We really don't want to have a record for snow ... happy to give it to someone else!
I still haven't heard from Blue. I hope she is ok. Just heard about Lupe, so very sad.
This has been a busy week for my parronts. I hope we can get everything done for Easter on Saturday.
The new cushions for the patio furniture came today. Too bad the patio is snow covered!
Don’t forget the Milonga on Saturday night ~ the viewing of the hats for the derby contest.

I just heard the sad news that Lupe (226033) has gone over the rainbow bridge. This has been a very bad “season” for too many birds. Fly free Lupe.

and Raffi just can't stop looking at their wonderful bird feeders and they just can't help being so joyful over all the wild birdies flocking to them,there's just so many of them that both their feeders look like two big balls of fluffy feathers of brown,red,blue and gold!Dixie tells Raffi that they are all enjoying their Easter Dinner early that both he and Raffi made for them!Momma Rose smiles at their animation and joyful noise as the wild birds keep flocking to the feeders!Dixie and Momma Rose are always so happy to have Raffi stay with them,they all love him soooo much and he always gives Dixie a reason to think of something other than his painful feet and toes!
Dixie tells Raffi that the cold today made his toes curl into a ball but his Mom soaked his feet and massaged his toes for an hour tonight!But being with Raffi made him forget the pain and enjoy his day!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses to my very favorite musical buddy and teacher and BFF in the world and his awesome loving Mommy too!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

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

  Hi Raffi
Nice sunbath today, but the neighbor came over and talked to Mom for half of it. I didn't squawk at him which surprised my mom a lot, but he is pretty big...even bigger than Dad. I didn't even want my nutriberry, so Mom brought me back inside after 30 minutes because she knew I was uncomfortable.

Don't forget to stop by the milonga page tomorrow night between 8PM EDT (5PM PDT) for the "viewing of the hats". The pics of the contestants in the hat contest will be displayed in the gallery for your perusal, and then the voting begins on Sunday. It isn't really a milonga, but there will be food done by Lizzie, and Sam might stop by with the Scruffy birds for a jam session. See you there?

Kiddo

  Thanks Raffikki,
Mom looked it up and got a background and made one but it didn't look that great so she is using a plain color background.

Thanks so much for getting back to me so quickly with the info. I can always count on you!

Have a good night!

Your friend,
Chipper

P.S. Come check out my new picture!
