  Hi Raffi
Today it's quite cold, it was 12 degrees when mom walked the dogs earlier. It's supposed to go to 25 today, and if it warms up, mom might make it to the supermarket for a few things. She doesn't rush out before a storm because we usually have enough in the house, but a neighbor needed some things, so mom shared. Tomorrow we're supposed to go to 39, but they are predicting a wintry mix of ice and rain. That's scary, because mom has a tour at the museum tomorrow, and will have to go out. Hopefully the weather guessers are wrong, and it won't be so bad.
Did you laugh when the National Weather service issued that apology? We thought it was hysterical, since they are wrong about 60% of the time! It's good that the snowfall was less, but it was still a big storm.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, PEPPINO, Happy New Year, Everybirdie, Divo & Falco, Happy New Year Everybirdie!.

  Hi Raffi and Pumbaa
Amando here with today's Amazon Adventure update. We have located the flock of wild Blue-Fronted Zons who had been attacked by the same group of poachers earlier this year raiding countless nests for babies. The poachers have been secretly laying nets to trap Armando's flock at their daily feeding grounds just ahead of us. We must move with extreme caution and be on the ready from here on.
Capt. Finny, Chuey, Kallie and Pearl return to the group for a quick briefing. "Since spotting baby Armando's flock, the Green Angels and I have been flying from tree to tree trying to locate his Momma. At the same time we are warning all 38 blue-fronted Amazons of the danger lurking beneath them. We are warning them to stay as high in the tree canopy as possible since the poachers cannot get too high where the branches turn into twigs, and watch out for nets. We told them that we have an entire company of parrots coming to their aid and told them to stay hidden until they hear JL's command to attack. Then they can join in the fun of ripping those poachers to bits and wrapping them in the very nets they had intended for the birds. In the mean time we'll continue our search for his Momma. Only 11 more trees to go..." off they fly to continue their search.
Kiddo whispers to Susan and Polly, " Nothing makes me madder then poachers, and they are just lucky my mom isn't here.."
Kaji tells Amando his idea, "We gotta get to the flock before the poachers do. I still say Lizzie could torch the dirty jerks, no problem. I bet she would scare the living you know what out of those evil people." Amando laughs at the thought.
Sweetpepper plays with baby Armando, she tells Sugar and Dory" It's very sad that 17 babies died. We will give baby Armando back to his parronts and save them from those rotten poachers." Sugar smiles but the anger in her eyes tells it all.
Cori and Boo Boo sigh, we have an idea, "we say lets get rid of these poachers once and for all. ,hey are only doing it because they need money. lets show them something they can do that doesn't harm anything and makes them lots of money, turning their poo into bio fuel." Sky can't help but grin at that thought. Jenny-Lynn nods her head in agreement then suddenly raises her wing for the group to halt, making the "be quiet" sign at the same time. Leaning close to Amando's ear she says, "your plans for Armando's return is a good one, we certainly have the parrot power to succeed! I almost feel sorry for those poacher folks! Somebody will have to hold Cappy back, I think that dude can get violent, LOL!"
They watch Cappy sharpening his beak. Cappy speaks up," if there are 5 poachers then I suggest a two fold trap ... the net and also a deadfall ... a hidden box with a fake nest and bird to attract them poachers in and as soon as they reach for it ...baaam ... the box slams shut ... effectively trapping them and making them vulnerable to our attack. What do you think ."

  Hi, Raffikki
Yup, any newspaper used must not have any faces in it. Would never use the obituaries either as that seems rather disrespectful. Usually puts a couple of layers so if in a hurry will just rip the top one off and there's another underneath. Then when only one layer will clean the actual bottom of the tray then put more more layers.

The only video games mom had for the consoles were board games or puzzle type games. She does admit to playing Animal Crossing with skinsis on the GameCube. That was a fun lil game.

Always a pleasure to babysit the grand. Skinsis says she wants to bring furball over on Thu or Fri to visit. Know furball would be so thrilled at that.

Dad did take a slip-slid and fall outside the Doctor's Office. It is nasty-icy out there.
He wasn't hurt but still doesn't like to fall.

We heard that the really bad part of the storm missed Zoo York City. And that people were complaining cause they close down the city.

They closed everything, BUT, the stock market was open, and we took a real bath. My nest egg sure got smaller.

  Hi Raffi and Pumbaa
Hello Birdie Commandos, Amando here in the sunny Brazilian Rain Forest. We are on our way to intercept baby Armando's flock and reunite him with his Momma. We have been made aware of poacher activities in the clearing up ahead at a frequently used feeding grounds. As we begin our trek across the dense jungle of south America our goal is to stop the poachers and take a BIG bite out of the illegal Parrot trade once and for all. Amando, Jenny-Lynn and Sky move out ahead of the others using their machetes to cut through the vines and growth making a path for the others to follow. " Those paochers are gonna be sorry they messed with us!" JL comments with an angry Zon growl. Calling a halt, the group stops for a brief rest beside a cool stream.
Cappy quickly sharpens his beak and talons before the group heads off again. He wants to make sure he is able to rip and shred flesh easily. Dory and Dixie hang back with little Armando and Dixie quietly plays peek-a-boo with him to take his mind off what's going on. Rudy ... is looking for something to eat again. Finding some avi-cakes to munch on.
"We need to make a plan to catch them cold-handed, and teach them a lesson they won't forget." Jenny comments to the others.
"If we lay the net on the ground and cover it with leaves, maybe they'll get caught and tangled and trip over themselves !" Cookie exclaims determination on his face
"A note to the poachers; "I know who you are, and what you do I shall never forgive you for, ever, YOU BELONG TO ME! My name is Jenny Lynn, and this is the same jungle my mom and dad grew up in, you are dead meat, GAME ON! " She gets an angry look in her eyes as see thinks of all the birds who have lived and died at the hands of poachers, of the thousands, upon thousands who have been stolen away from their homes, families and flocks, of Paoo who was mutilated for the enjoyment of humans to see. THIS IS WAR. We must fight hard, and we must never given in." she yells loudly and is joined by the cheers of agreement from all the others.
Amando climbs up onto a fallen limb, " Our greatest challenge lies before us. Captain Finny and the Green Angels have been doing reconnaissance and have brought back confirmation that there are 5 poachers ahead to the south west. Also they have located the flock from which baby Armando was stolen. There are approximately 38 Blue-fronted Amazons living and nesting not four miles from here. It appears that the same group of thieves raided the nests of fourteen nesting pairs this year taking all but two youngsters from their homes. Three adults were severely injured while attempting to defend their nests from intruders. Very fortunately no adults were killed at that time, but the mortality rate among the stolen chicks was high, out of thirty-three chicks, seventeen died en-route to the village from chilling, dehydration and crowding. We believe baby Armando is one of the survivors of that nest raid."

  Hi Raffi
Mom didn't realize it, but I actually ate a little bit of spinach from her lunch today. She didn't know until I gave it back to her on her fingers....hee hee.

I got another reprieve on the nail trim! Mom called Jennifer at the store today, and she is still feeling a little sick and didn't want to work on me. We birds are so susceptible to respiratory ailments. So Mom is going to call her back on Thursday and see how she is feeling. Meanwhile my talons are driving her crazy, but then she put it off too. Nail trims are not an activity either one of us enjoys much.

Yay! Two days now that I haven't bitten my mom or even acted angry. Whatever was making me so aggressive has hopefully passed. No sunbath though since it rained all night (yippee!), and although the sun is out now it's just not that warm. Probably be a few more days before I get outside again.

  HELLO FROM LITTLE LUCY
Hi Raffi,
I love that pic of you and PumBaa! My Daddy loves to fish. It doesn't matter if it's spring/summer fishing or ice-fishing. He fishes right here in our back yard in the little lake we live on. It may be small, but it's full of all kinds of fish. We live right at the spot that it goes into the river that connects it to several other lakes. Daddy calls it a fish highway! It's really nice because since Daddy's been sick for the past 6 1/2 years, all he has to do is walk out in the back yard and sit on his fishing bench or a chair he puts out by the lake. Sometimes it's even too much for him to do that. However, since getting the drain out, he's feeling better.

What made my Mommy sick, you ask? She was supposed to drink 64 oz. of Gatorade with an 8 oz. bottle of Miralax mised in it....that's what made her sick!
She says "never again!" If she has to have another colonoscopy, she's going to take citrate of magnesia. It's a small bottle and it doesn't taste bad, and it does the trick. So there!

It's a lovely day today, cold, but sunny. Mommy is bird-sitting for five other birdies this week. Usually, people bring their birds to our house, but these friends live less than 2 miles away, so she goes to their house two or three times a day. Five birdies would probably be too many to bring over anyway. People usually don't bring more than three birds over. These folks have an African cape parrot, an elderly yellow headed Amazon and three peach faced lovebirds. Mommy loves all the birdies that she cares for. I hope you're having a wonderful day.
Lots of Love and Big Hugs, from Little Miss Lucy♥

Mom got an email from Aunt Jane yesterday, saying they spent some time with the awesome Felix LaFollett! We hope they took lots of pictures. She says Felix is a real ham, came closer when the camera came out.
Well, it snowed here pretty much all day yesterday and overnight as well. We think it's about 7 or 8 inches total since Sunday night. Mom walked the dogs on a partially plowed street this morning, so the trucks haven't finished yet. The good news is that Josh came and dug out the driveway and walk late yesterday, so there's not much to clean up today. Mom says if he calls again, though, she'll pay him to do the work. There's not much to report, mom is catching up on some reading and we are getting lots of mom time. I hope you are getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

...your votes on my behalf are greatly appreciated! We have always loved you and your sweet family, every since you first came on the BC (we remember)! We already knew you and your family were something special special! Unlike our dear friends on the East Coast, we are having very seasonal Winter weather (THANKFULLY), but we pray for our friends out East, we truly care! We are all doing quite well, even the Zig is behaving better, silly little Macaw! Dad went out and give the cold outside birdies some of our leftover seeds, he can't stand to see them be hungry, we love all birds! Don't forget puppy bowl on Sunday, they are all so cute and all those dogs are up for adoption, very heart warming! Sugar has always been a dear friend, but since Art's Lakeland flock picked up her banner, Angel Christy is inching closer to the 10K HOF Club, you will never hear our sweet Angel beg for votes, she has too much pride and dignity for that! Happy ToosDay dear ones, give my love to all in your happy family, see ya tomorrow...

  Hi, Raffikki
Our mom likes to use the car ads, classifieds and real estate pages to line the bottom of the birdhouse. Doesn't want us having to see any faces looking up at us.

Think the parronts got a home puter when skinsis was around 4. It came with some free games but no instructions. So they had to play it to show skinsis how to play. Turned out to be a series and she loved 'em all. Later there were a few puter games that the entire family took turns playing or helped each other with it.

The grand was at the parronts yesterday since her parronts had overlapping work schedules. We aren't scared of her anymore. Mom brought her over to see us and we didn't blink or flinch, just continued what we were doing as she looked at us. Think dad got a pic of mom feeding her some baby food.

dad had an appointment with the vet today to discuss doggies tumor on her toe on her left leg. before he left doggie started limping very badly with her right leg. after x-rays the vet said doggie had broken her right leg and can't do anything about the tumor until her leg heals. right now she is wearing a splint and has to have a water proof sock slipped over the splint to do her outside business in the snow. at least her leg is supported now and she isn't limping but is having a hard time walking with the splint. the vet said the first week is the worst and then she will start to do better. right now she is on pain meds. we have no idea how she broke her leg. of all the times to have to have a broken leg with ll the snow in the yard. dad has shoveled paths for her to walk for now.

We woke up this morning to another dismal grayish day out there and another sunless day the highs for the day were 32 which we never saw and the lows will be 27 it's 30 right now and snowing hard. As Mom finished up our room,cleaning and feeding us and getting our cages set she vacuumed the whole house as she couldn't do it yesterday with everyone here and as she was putting the vacuum away skin bro drove into the spare driveway.He came in and Mom served him breakfast of English muffins with strawberry jam and butter and made him some hot coffee. He stayed for several hours and then took off to pay his car insurance bill and then was short on money for some reason they told him he needed $11.00 more,they must've raised the price on him,he has to call the person in charge but he has to wait to do that now because everyone is gone because of the storm.He called Mom but he was right down the street from Nana so Mom told him to get the money from her and Mom will pay Nana back when she sees her,he felt bad about taking the money from Nana but Mom told him he'd better get down there before they cut him off his insurance,so he did.Then he went back to Nana's and is helping her get her fireplace started and bringing up some logs for her to burn to keep them both warm and my cousins,skin bro will be staying with Nana,he went back to his apartment to get some things.My dad was able to come home for a few hours to get a hot meal and an hours nap before he has to be back out to work the storm at 6:00pm tonight,Mom had his dinner on the table as he walked in the door at 4:00pm,Mom finished the dinner dishes and then reloaded two lunch cooler bags/boxes for him with everything she could fit inside,Kcups(EggNog flavor),juice boxes,8 PB&J sandwiches,cookies,breakfast bars and Pop tarts.Mom is going to get the coal/wood stove started tonight so that if and when the power goes off we can all come right into the tv room and stay warm with her,she'll shut the door to the rest of the house so we don't lose the heat out there.She still has to get all our cages in(deck cage and other smaller cages as we are in a triple decker and that is too tall and heavy to move and will have to be taken apart to fit though the door and down the step to the sunken living room(tv room).It looks like Mom isn't going anywhere for the whole week as this storm isn't going to be over until Wednesday sometime.My dad went down to the hardware store to get Mom two 40 pound bags of coal so she could use that in the coal/wood stove if the power goes out but she is going try and get it started tonight before anything happens,the wind is really picking up now and the snow is piling up,my dad just left to go back to work and he left Mom with flashlights with good batteries in them and he told her that if she runs out of coal he will try and get more for her.Skin sis is planning on going back to her apartment as she forgot her contact solution,Mom thinks she should just stay with Nana for the ni

  Hi Raffi and Pumbaa
Hello fellow Amazon Adventurers, Amando here with a rather "fishy" situation. After scaring the Hippos away with a Cappy scream and landing safely down River, we soon made the discovery that that the Amazon is home to some pretty "fishy" characters. Red-bellied Piranhas.
Cappy shudders when he sees the bucket and the churning water ..." I think it best to stay away from that water ... Thank goodness those things can't come on shore ... just look at how fast they ate through the bucket ... Faster than I could have ... whew."
The others back away from the water as Jenny-Lynn eyes the chewed bucket, then leans over to look at the fish. "could I get one of those Piranhas with tartar sauce and lettuce, LOL! "
Just as the birds had settled for lunch Capt. Finny flew in at a swift speed, between breathes he related the outcome of the Green Angel's search of the area. "Kacey and Kallie sent Chuey to tell Chipper and I to get up the river fast! Pearl and Silver have been on the look-out with them to see what kind of suspicious activity is going on. We're getting pretty near where we could be spotting Armando's Momma and flock anytime now. So we wanted to be really careful. You're not going to believe this, but we saw more poachers! And this time they were really operating undercover, spreading nets. I think they may be after Armando's flock! You've got to get up here fast with JL and the gang, but be sure you keep little Armando out of sight. We've come so far and we're so close now, but this is going to be dangerous."
Amando looks at Jenny-Lynn and Sky, then at all his friends. He goes to Sugar and leans over to whisper into Armando's ear, " you're almost home little buddy. We're not going to stop now. Soon you will be back with your Momma" he kisses him softly on the head and sadly smiles at Sugar.
Turning to the others he says, " Finny and the Green Angels have found poachers ahead. Armando's flock is in danger. We are BC Commando Birds and we will not give-up, back-down or retreat. Who is with me?"
With one voice the cheer fills the Rainforest opening where the group stopped for lunch. "We will not be defeated. Together we shall win the war over poaching!" Amando's heart filled with hope and courage as he returned to Jenny-Lynn and Sky. Sitting on an old log, the three discuss with Finny the area ahead, the location of the poachers and make their plan of attack. Little Armando must be returned to his flock. Jenny looks at the drawing of the area and frowns. The nesting site for Armand's flock is close by. "I have no doubt that they are indeed after Armando's flock. " Jenny growls angrily, and glares off into the jungle growth.
"OK Birdie Commando's let's move out. It's war. This time it is no-holds-barred" Amando yells.
Sugar and Dory get Armando ready for the cross jungle trek. With Guards, Taz, Spot, Gus, Cori, Sweetpepper, Kiddo and Pookie in closed formation around Armando they begin to move out.

  Hi Raffi
Thankfully whatever had me biting my mom yesterday seems to have passed. You will be glad to know (Mom sure is) that I am behaving much better today and keeping my beak to myself.

In the eggcitement of the rage yesterday I forgot to share some amazing info from the day before. I willingly ate broccoli! That's right. Mom was eating one of her lunches and it had that green stuff in it along with rice and corn and other stuff I have always liked. However that day I picked up a little piece of broccoli and even went back and ate a little more. That got me all sorts of good boys from Mom....not like yesterday's screams of pain. Mom never even ate lunch yesterday, so no sharing went on at all.

And today we shared a burrito for lunch. Dad made a pot roast for dinner last night with turnips and potatoes. He is actually better at roasts than Mom is. And she cut a bunch up and seasoned it with spices then wrapped it up in a tortilla for our lunch. Yum! Good eats!

  Hi Raffi
We got about 6 inches of snow so far last night and today. Mom shoveled the front walkway after she walked the dogs. It's still snowing, though, so she called off at the center and is going to wait to do the driveway. She is kind of hoping that Josh comes by to shovel when the snow stops. It's supposed to stop by one, but it will snow again later.
Mom's family came over last night with pizza, salad, and ice cream cake to celebrate her daughter's birthday. They will try for Nicky's Thai next week if the weather is good. Everyone had a big dinner, and some of us(Willie, Peppino, and Maxine) got to have a little crust and salad, too. Mom made sure we were all in cages before everyone left, too, so none of us would try to follow them outside in the snow.
There's not much going on, due to the snowfall, so I will wish you a day filled with cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, PEPPINO, Happy New Year, Everybirdie, Divo & Falco, Happy New Year Everybirdie!.

  Hiya Raffi pal, my dad love Ice Fishing-Jenny Lynn
Dad watched the 1st half of the Pro-Bowl last night and just couldn't take it any longer, those guys are high paid pros, and nobody wants to hurt anybody else, dad thought they should all wear little pink skirts, and carry parasols, LOL! All the new rule changes took all the fun out of the game, no kick offs, no blitzing, come on, give me a break! Our guessers have predicted 1 to 2 inches of snow, no big deal, but it will keep our dad at home today! Sweet LaLo was climbing all over dad, last night biting holes in his t-shirt, she loves her daddy so much! Our prayers are going out to our East coast birdie friends, Winter Storm Juno is said to be the worst ever, God Bless them all! Give our love to all in our happy home, stay warm, see ya tomorrow...

Love from Jenny & our caring family
