  Hi Raffikki
Oh, I will! Dad took mom golfing today. This weekend his one league is finished ... he is sad.
How much snow do you get?
It was a beautiful sunny day. It got up to 59 degrees at one point but it was chilly because of the wind. The sad part is the huge gathering of Canada geese in Walloon Lake. They were resting on the way down south. Mom was asking them not to go unless they take her with them. I hope I get to go too! Fly Away Home music begins ...........
Hugs

  Hi Raffi
I know Chi chi cleaned her beak off too but not as much as I do I guess.Some of the crafts are so pretty and am sure people buy now for Christmas gifts too.

Mom put the bird cutout pictures on the bottom of my gallery!! This is the one mom bought at the craft show last weekend ones were wanting to see. Today was too cold to go out and in fact the sun never came out much if at all. Yesterday the cows were all out across the road in the pasture when I was out for my sunbath. One of them mooed at me and I mooed back at him. I kept my eagle eye on them since they are usually way out in the field and not down this way when I am out for a sunbath. Some are really big though. “Sometimes people ask mom how she can be friends with people she has never met and mom tells them then you have never been on bird channel I bet. That about sums it up to my friend” ~~ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

My skin sis just called my Mom and she is in the hospital with a UTI and Pancreatitis,by the time she called Mom around a half hour ago it was too late to go up and see her.Visiting hours are til 8:00pm.She had been having bad pains in her stomach and she could barely walk or stand up so she had an appointment for another MRI,CatScan and bloodwork after work tonight and they found all this so she says they gave her something to make her feel better but they were keeping her overnight,just another thing that Mom has to worry about and hopefully now she will have to race out of the house tomorrow morning and go to the hospital to find out whats going on now!She was supposed to go to zumba but now that's out of the question as are any errands she had to get done.If its not one thing around here its another!Sometimes Mom feels like she's going insane and can't keep up with everything!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses,Loving you always and forever,my BFF!Love,Dixie

  Day 16--Kayaking Adventures
Good morning everyone, Angel Girl here with today's post. The afternoon turned out perfect for kayaking along the coast line. We stop for lunch in a sheltered cove, where within minutes we are able to visit a nationally known Seabird nesting site. Here Terns, Gulls and other species nest noisily in the rocky cliffs and along the shoreline. As we enjoyed our lunch the sounds from the nesting birds was difficult to hear over.
"WOW, I can't believe how loud they are" Popeye yells to Chyna only inches away. The two girls laugh as neither can hear one another.
"Look" Cydney says pointing to a family of whales surfacing not far off shore. She snaps several pictures before joining Willie, Kaji, Lizzie and Cookie as they hike to the nesting grounds with the others. " Yuck!" she looks down, and sees she'd stepped in Sea Gull poop, " OH no, my new shoes!" she looks sadly at the mess. The others giggle
"Snowy!" Sky calls, come here buddy wanta show you something " a lobster" they look at the large clawed creature staring angrily back from a shallow pool of water among rocks. Let's help him back into the ocean." Sky says trying to pick the snapping Lobster." Snowy grabs a stick and lifts him up as he clamps down. " not such a nice fella are ya?" he laughs as Sky and him gently lower him into the surf.
"AHHHHHH, babies" Little Angel tells Dixie, " aren't they cute." they watch the fledglings trying to rise into the sky as clouds of white take off from the shore. " doesn't it make you just wanta have a baby to love too?" LA gets all dreamy eyed. "Maybe we can adopt a baby bird?" she smiles sweetly watching the youngsters.
Boo Boo and Cori take photos of the birds in flight, as Chipper and BonBon draw pictures in their sketchbooks. Spot and a few of the boys take off into the sky flying with the Seabirds, screaming happily with them.
"Ok, sorry everybirdie but we must move on. We have lots more to see" Angel Girl calls loudly, trying to be hear over the roar of bird voices. Reluctantly everyone says farewell to their new friends, as they head to the shore and get their kayak ready to move on. The whales continue to swim close to the shore as the group paddles off. Angel Girl shares a little history of Cape Breton as they quietly paddle along.

In 1784, Britain split the colony of Nova Scotia into three separate colonies: New Brunswick, Cape Breton Island, and present-day peninsular Nova Scotia, in addition to the adjacent colonies of St. John's Island (renamed Prince Edward Island in 1798) and Newfoundland. The colony of Cape Breton Island had its capital at Sydney on its namesake harbor fronting on Spanish Bay and the Cabot Strait. Its first Lieutenant-Governor was Joseph Frederick Wallet DesBarres (1784–1787) and his successor was William Macarmick (1787).

Large-scale shipbuilding began in the 1790s. Shipbuilding peaked in the 1850s, marked in 1851 by the full rigged ship Lord Clarendon, the largest ever built in Cape Breton.

  Hi Raffi,

How are you? It's your Friend, Oz. I'm getting in touch with Everyone in the Bridal Party to let them know that we have to be at the Castle at 2:00PM for the 4:00PM Double Wedding Ceremony on Sat. I still have to Post on the Calendar Page (not sure about this one but I did leave a message for Kiddo) and get in touch with Spot (he's doing the Ceremony) and Ms. BB (the Castle). Okay, here's a vote and I'll see Everybirdie on Sat. @ 2:00.

Love & Winghugs,

  Hi Raffi
Well, Mom wasn't fooling around one little bit this morning. We got outside for my sunbath at 8:30, and it was just the right temp. (That's because we have another scorcher of 104 for today.) However in order to get sunshine for me, my carrier was sitting in the sidewalk (the house blocks early morning sun). By the time we came in I was on the grass, but nobody walked by anyway. I would have ordered them off my sidewalk if they had.

Well, we are up to 8 entries for the Rodeo Queen, and I say that makes it a contest (more would be better though!). Every single one of these birdies is a beauty, and we will have the pics posted in the Milonga page gallery (165848) before voting starts on the 18th. You will then have one vote per bird per day until the 24th (midnight EDT). We now have 7 barrel racers and still only 5 mutton busters, so there is still room for both of those events. And if you want to enter for Rodeo Queen, you have until midnight EDT tomorrow to get your name and pic entered. And of course, don't forget the rodeo will be held on the 27th.

  Hi Raffi
Mom had a meeting today at the museum, so we are just getting online now. It was mostly about teaching new docents the rest of the halls. Mom had 2 years of training, but the docents who were hired in the spring only had training either in Dinosaur hall or in 3 cultures. Now they are worried that the new folks can't do tours in the rest of the museum. Anyway mom signed on to teach ecosystems, biomes, and animal adaptations, as well as possibly PA natural history. Hope they can use her expertise in some way or other.
Bree came by to do our birdicures yesterday and while she and mom were talking, mom mentioned that Falco is not as active with her as she used to be, and that she hasn't really wanted a bath for awhile either. Bree looked at her injured leg and she thinks Falco might still have a fractured fibula, the little bone in the leg. So mom called Jill today to see if she can look at Falco and give her opinion, and maybe some vet wrap too.
I hope you are having a good day today, getting a lot of love and sunshine. Hugs, Willie

  Panther, Raffi and the lil bros
Are so proud of the bows and arrows they made !!!
Tall Bull blesses the bows and arrows and they ride their horses to the place of Custers last stand.
Tall Bull tells the boys to lay on top of the hill filled with green grass.
They all lay down and look down the hill into the grass valley.
Raffi says this place is beautiful who would think that such a bloody battle happened here ???
Tall Bull lays next to the boys and tells them this is where our tribe and lots of other tribes united and defeated Custer and the seventh calvary.

Tall Bull tells the boys to close their eyes while he chants.
He say's you will be riding with our warriors spirits through this battle and you will see everything they have seen.

Suddenly the boys hear a victory War Cry...
Tall Bull say's the spirits of these warriors are waiting to take you on their journey...
Panther and Raffi and the lil bros all close their eyes and get ready for the journey...

Much love to my sweet family clan
Love your bro
Panther.

Hey Mommy Erin, to this day our tribe along with the tribes who fought in this war can still hear the war cry's of the Warriors and the cry's of Custer and his Calvary.
This place is sacred so we don't go into the actual battle field.
There's said to be ghosts and spirits. Sitting over the battle field is as far as we go.
Some tourists have actually gone down there and came back up with their faces white with fear because they hear only the ghosts of Custer and his seventh calvary.
Our warriors don't speak to the tourists. They only speak to our tribe.
With a medicine man present to help them interact from the spiritual world to this world.
It took a lot of warriors from different nations to beat this battle and save our people from genocide.
This is the battle of Little Big Horn...

Love you lots
Mommy Staci.

  Hi, Raffikki
Okay, how can one drop a phone in a glass of water? Can see how it could slip out of a pocket or some such and fall into a creek, pool, etc but falling up is a lil more impressive. Oh, didn't realize that if the cover to the plug on a waterproof phone breaks then that's it for protection. Seems kinda flimsy if broke off within a week.

Good thing mom got the printer for close to half off since it was $15 for the USB cable, yikes. She hasn't hooked it to the puter yet but doesn't anticipate any problems.

Yes, it was sad to see family members move so far away. We haven't seen them since. But, I can understand how they feel, it took a lot out of them.
Mom & I would love it if we NEVER saw snow again!!! This is the first time that dad said he was starting to get tired of snow.
We had a nice day of 55 with a little sun for a few hours. I was very busy playing all day. I did take time out to watch the blue jays and chippies eating peanuts on the patio. It might get a bit warmer with more sun tomorrow, I hope so. Hope you had a nice day.

  Hi Raffi
it doesn't usually get cool like this until October. i hope this doesn't mean we are in for a super long winter. winters already way to long. with all the rain we had you would think the ground would be moist but everything is dry as a bone so mom was trying to water some of the shrubs that are really wilting. its important that they get plenty of water in the fall because once the ground freezes they don't get any water at all. mom had planted some shrubs called beauty berry because they get these tiny purple luminescent berries in the fall and are quite pretty and the birds also eat them. well when mom went to water them today something had cut off all the branches with the berries on them and they were laying all over the ground. mom can't understand why someone would do that. it wasn't a deer because a deer would eat it and not leave it laying on the ground so it had to be some nasty neighbor or kid. didn't see the little bunny today but will continue to watch for him

Kallie was on his best behavior today and mainly stayed in our room on the big playgym there inside his boxes chewing up a storm and making another big mess for my Mom to clean up!Then he would fly out to the TV room to the small playgym there to keep me company while I was enjoying the view outside looking through the big window there.There sure were alot of big starlings and grackles on the deck feeder and all over the yard at the big feeder!Mom busied herself all day with cleaning the hardwood floor in the dining room and the tile floor in the kitchen,first she vacuumed them then she scrubbed them then she put the floor wash on them then she finally put the polish on them and it took all day as she had to wait for each section to dry and then she had to put everything back that was in those rooms!She got it all done before dad came home which was good as he always walks on the wet floors and makes more work for Mom!

Mom usually misses the craft shows but her one friend sets up at some so she tells mom and that is how mom remembered this one. We have no idea what kind of bird this is cut out of wood but for sure its not an ekkie LOL
I know some of you don’t know a whole bunch about us ekkies but one of our traits is forever cleaning our beak off after we eat. Sometimes my water gets pretty messy so mom has to change it often and other times I wipe it off on what ever is handy when I am done eating. It can be a condo bar, perch, or this stone thing mom has on my condo porch, or this toy with sticks sticking out of it or my heater. Mom is forever cleaning those things off and it sort of dries on my heater so takes a bit of scrubbing to get it clean. Mom always says about what a mess I make it while she is cleaning it too. I think its good exercise for mom to have the extra chores I create for her to do though. It keeps her out of trouble too LOL. “Sometimes people ask mom how she can be friends with people she has never met and mom tells them then you have never been on bird channel I bet.

Mom is still on a restricted diet from the stomach surgery on 8/20. No0 meat or fiber of any kind for 8 weeks! She would kill for a cookie, and let's not even talk about a ribeye steak....

Well, it ended up hitting 104 here yesterday, and today is just as hot. I was not fooling around when Mom said it was time to go outside at 8:45. I knew it was then or never and didn't give Mom any trouble about climbing into my outdoor cage. We still only stayed out there for 35 minutes, because Mom was getting warm and besides it is trash day. Those trucks started rumbling through and Mom just picked me up and took me inside.

Mom then went to the gym to work out with her trainer. Becky had her standing up (instead of sitting for her workout) for the first time today, although she was still very careful not to do any exercises that engaged the abs. And that 10 pounds is still gone! Zumba on Friday!!!

We now have 5 entries for the Rodeo Queen contest, so technically that is enough since it is the queen and 4 princesses, but really.....that is not a contest. Let's see some more entries. If you can't do a pic yourself, surely you have a friend who can help out. We have 5 mutton busters, so there is room for 5 more. Only 3 barrel racers so far so plenty of room there. We can take up to 10 of each. The Queen contest is no limits!!

Oh that horrid squawkatiel out again and messing us all up,I've been getting the constant cycling and pages not found,it sure can make our lives miserable and take hours just to get all our blogs done!I don't know why they just don't fix the problem already!
Mom spent the morning cleaning the floors,vacuuming and then washing and putting some floor polish on them as they were really bad from all the coming in and out and up and down stairs with all the stuff from the room up there!Its really cold here now and we are at our high for the day of 64 degrees and the intermittent sunshine has long gone and its so cloudy like its going to rain,its supposed to rain sometime today or tomorrow.Mom has kept me in the tv room in the acrylic cage so I can look out the window at all the wild birds in the front yard,Kallie keeps coming in here to keep me company and then he'll go flying back out to our room!Mom has the big playgym in the dining room moved by the front door so she could wash the floor and after it dries she'll put it back so he just comes straight in here!Mom put the heat box on this morning to chase some of the chill out of the rooms and she also used it to help dry the floors!

  Hi Raffi
Today Bree is coming for our birdicures. This morning mom cleaned the outdoor RVS pens for the first time in awhile. There are 2 adult coyotes out there in separate pens as well as 22 raccoons! Good thing the raccoons are social and don't mind sharing quarters, because the center doesn't have 22 cages out there! They can be housed in a few large cages, but those are real bears to clean, so it took mom over 2 hours for all the outdoor areas today. Still, it was nice to be out in the sun, even if it was cooler than we like.
I don't think we'll get out today, because it's not very warm again. In fact, it looks like it's gonna be cool all week long. I hope you are having better weather, getting some warm sunshine and especially getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Willie

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Kaji, TiPaul, and Sky for 10k!, Peppino, Divo & Falco, fly free, Tooth.

  Panther and Raffi wake up early
They run to the kitchen excited to make bows and arrows from willow branches and stones for the arrow heads.
They have a quick breakfast and make sure the lil bros don't eat anything with sugar.
Tall bull walks by Raffi and says where's your girlfriend ???
Every one laughs as Raffi blushes.

Tall Bull takes the boys out to the mountains and they find a willow tree.
Tall Bull says ok boys here is where we start !!!

Much love to my sweet family clan

  Hi Raffikki,
Thank you all who came to the KB for the past two weeks that I was in the "School House Booth." I hope everyone had a fantastic time of Fall/Back to School activities. Whether you came to an activity or just came to blog and/or vote, I appreciate everyone of you who stopped by to visit me. It was nice having support from my BC friends. Thanks again!!

There will be a "Back to School" Picnic today. There will be food that I left for the day, even though another birdie is taking over. Please help yourself to some good food, compliments of Chipper.

Have a good day! Leaving you a vote.

Your friend,
Chipper

Come visit me, Chipper.

  Morning Raffi & PumbaaPig-from your Jenny
We are having a mundane Monday, but with no complaints to speak of, and who would listen anyway! My dad is having a really hard time recognizing this Isis/Isol group as human beings, but can't say anything about them because it would surely offend some poor sensitive terrorist somewhere! We are praying for our West Central California friends caught up in that horrific forrest fire, and sending our special prayers to sick and injured parrots everywhere! Have a great Monday, and give my love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

Monday love from Jenny & my family

  Hi, Raffikki
If our mom had a smart phone it would have a case and that screen protector, but as you say never know how it falls and on what if the device would be unscathed. Know they are making 'em more water resistant. (Skinsis lost a couple phones due to water - one fell in the creek and another one in the potty. Why the need to take a phone into the bathroom??)

Turns out that printer isn't wireless. It needed a USB cable that was not provided in the box, yikes! So, she had to stop at the store and get one. Just needs some free time to try it out more. A few things she wants to scan. Would assume current wireless printers would work better than the first ones that were made.

Yes, the Santana concert was awesome. At the time our dad wondered why Santana had never won any grammies and then later on Supernatural went on to win a bunch.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Raffi
we were so happy to see that the little bunny is back sitting in our yard. we were so afraid something had happened to him because he has been gone for about a month. he is now sporting a long haired winter coat. he needs it because it is dropping into the 40s now at night. of course in a month that will seem warm and will be our average day temps.

love Boo Boo

Come visit me, Paddy Cake & Piddy Girl VOTE AngelGirl BOTM 224627, CORI reigning champ on feed the birdie & BOO BOO VOTE AngelGirl BOTM 224627.

  Hi Raffikki
We like the part about the warm weather and barely any snow! My parronts still want to visit someday. maybe the next trip?
Funny thing, the two cousins that were in the WTC moved to CA and we don't hear from them except maybe at Christmas. The cousin in the Pentagon got married and move to a different country with her doctor husband.
We had a heat wave today for a couple of hours! It was 55 degrees ...woohoo! Still waiting to see some sun on my feathers. Hope every bird had a nice weekend.
Hugs
Chyna

Come visit me, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  Hi Raffi
Heck if we could put the weather all together like that for one day we might as well go for a year LOL
Mom went to a craft show though she wasn’t going to go at first she finally got her tail feathers moving and went and she sure was glad she did. There was 40 c raft booths and lots to see and knowing mom she went thru it at least twice if not more too. She came home with a wooden intricate cut out of a bird ~ now who would ever think she would buy something like that ???LOL. “You know you’re a bird person when your pockets contain more almonds then money.” Leaving a vote for you my friend… Gus (RIP Chi chi)

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