  Hi Flitzer
Once again I refused to go outside in the morning for my sunbath, and by the time Mom got home from the gym at 12:30 it was way too warm. Yes, 89 is cooler than it has been here, but still too hot. And of course, 8 degrees higher than the weather idiots forecasted. I just can't seem to get the idea that sunbaths have to happen in the mornings now. I want to go out in the middle of the afternoon like we did a couple of months ago.

Mom and I shared a Weight Watchers "crustless chicken pot pie" for lunch. It sounds kinda yucky, but it was actually pretty good with lots of chicken. However Mom put so much Creole seasoning on it, it was almost too spicy for her! Her lips were burning after she was done, but of course I just loved it. Liked the chicken, but the peas and corn were tasty too. I even ate a little piece of celery which is a first for me!

Dad is home on the second day of his vacation, and I have to say his taking naps is OK by me. That keeps him away from Mom and out of my room. Maybe this vacation thing won't be so bad after all.

  Hi Raffi
Today mom was in the recovery room with the peregrine falcon, a turkey, a duck, a pigeon, and 5 turtles. It was a fairly easy but hot day there at the center, as the recovery room is small with one little fan. Mom also did intake papers on 3 rabbits and a pigeon. The people who brought in the pigeon came near the end of her shift, thank goodness, because they had about a million questions.
After the center, mom got to the pool! It's a beautiful day, mid 80s, and sunny, if a bit hazy. Tonight mom has to make deviled eggs for the cookout tomorrow at her daughter's house. Sounds like a pretty easy thing to do for some great picnic food, right?
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles and love. Hugs, Willie

  Hello Raffi~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! It was about a billion degrees here yesterday!!! Okay, it was 98 but it felt like a billion! We are really big babies when it comes to anything over 80! Guess it's going to be like this for the next week or so. Mom got the portable A/C out and Ian and Jennifer spent the entire evening on the sofa watching a silly show on HULU about people racing around the world. It thought it was pretty boring and nothing was blowing up either!!
When mom and Ian came up here to look for a place to live, about 20 years ago, they were having a heat wave and mom thought they were all being too dramatic. They lived in Mojave at the time and it would be 122 by 10am! Now mom understands! The cool weather was a huge selling point when they were looking for a place to move to! Dad was already working up here at the time. Just like with the snow, the heat happens up here every few years.
Mom is going to drive Jennifer down to her dad's house tomorrow so I am going to wish you a safe and Happy 4th today in case we don't have time for notes tomorrow. Mom is working through the weekend but Ian is off so he'll be here to take care of me and Merlin. Neither of us are bothered by fireworks but mom would never leave us alone anyway.
The gardeners are here now and trimming all the bushes. I guess they wanted to get an early start so they don't have to be doing it when it gets to be a billion degrees again!hehehe
Have a fabulous day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

Dad has an afternoon party on the 4th, but will be home birdie-sitting that evening.
I am skiddish and scared of loud fireworks in the neighborhood. Dad stays home and plays with me, sings to me - and keeps me occupied during the big BOOMS and NOISES that others make throughout the town.

  Hi, Raffikki
With your mom showing skinsis how to purl she should catch on really quickly. Once she is used to that and the way it looks then will be able to make the cloths. Just have to keep track of which row she is on and never stop in the middle. There are patterns where the back side is all one stitch (not counting the border) which makes it even easier.

The patriotic cloths weren't made for any particular person. Probably be given away eventually since made with yarn already had.

We aren't that impressed with the grand but aren't scared of her so much anymore. Mom takes her over to see us every time she is visiting.

Thanks, mom just changed my pic this afternoon. Finally got a new one for this year.
Oh yes, we will miss Meijers a lot!
The weather is sure strange everywhere!
How is it going with all those shark attacks on the coast of NC????
It was a nice day today. But, dad was working on the patio all day so, we didn't get to sit out there. I did get to sit by the screen door and watch the birds and chipmunks. It looks like the next 4 days will be greyt!.
Get ready for the big booms!

  Hi Raffikki
This morning was a bright sunny morning with pleasant temperatures of highs of 77 and lows of 60. Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages,fed us and swept our room,then she vacuumed the house and got the trash all collected for tomorrow and the recyclables and got most of those in the car.Then she got the big roaster chicken out and got that ready and in the oven so it will be done in time for dinner tonight.Mom was going to take us all out on the deck but just as she got done with her chores,the sun disappeared and its all cloudy and looks like it gonna start to rain,so it looks like we're not going to be going out today again.Skin sis called and Nana called to wish Mom a happy birthday and skin bro IM'd Mom and wanted to know what she had planned for her birthday and Mom told him that she was home making a big roaster chicken for dinner tonight and is working on her house chores and taking care of us.Other than that its been a boring day here but that's fine with us as any day Mom's home with us all day is a good day for us!
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,Dixie

  Hi Raffi
Well, I was a stubborn brat again today, but then Mom was late with our breakfast and didn't come get me up until 7:15 so I was seriously annoyed. So she woke up with a bad headache; how is that my problem? No sunbath, but then what else is new? Mom even tried to lure me with a little piece of tater chip, courtesy of Dad, but I flew down to her knee, grabbed it and flew up to the top of the book case with it. She can't get me down from there without getting a bite.

She gave up about 10:30, and then at noon she took off for her arthritis massage. The arthritis in her left shoulder (not the one that had surgery) has been really bad lately, so she really needed it I guess. She did come sit with me as soon as she got back home though, so I am giving her a break and being affectionate again.

Dad's vacation is in full swing, and he is making tacos to celebrate. Not only is Independence Day coming up, but the 5th is Dad's birthday and so he and Mom will be celebrating with tacos till then or as long as the ingredients hold out. The whole house smells good from the meat simmering away, and I know Mom will share at least one of them with me. She will have one with avocado first, and then bring one in without parrot poison to be shared. Yum!

  Hey Bro
Today I'm taking you to the Northern Cheyenne rez in Lame Deer Montana...
This is where the people of the Big sky comes from... My tribe The northern Cheyenne...
When our creator made all things that are good and living such as our four legged brothers with fur,our brothers with wings and beaks,our brothers with scales and fins and our brothers who
crawl.He sent them from father sky to mother earth. He then made a man and a woman...They were sent to earth from the stars.
All animals are our relations.And we start our prayers with all our families and relations...We are all made from the same creator !!! So there you have it !!!
Our tribe is considered to have the most beautiful people of all Native American tribes...
My tribe were not farmers or sheep herders...We are Warriors and hunters. Living off our own land that the creator blessed us with.
My tribe is considered to be very friendly but have short tempers and will fight at the drop of a hat !!!
The boy's in my tribe are considered to be men at the age of 8 years old and they will go in the sweat lodge to be blessed with a man's name by my medicine man.After we have been blessed and given our name we can then go out to battle with the Warriors.
The girls at birth are named names like Sweet Woman,Sun Woman etc.There is always a woman at the end of their names.
Most last names have the word big in front of it like mines Bigfoot, Big left Hand etc...
We are taught at a very young age to have respect for all living things.And all things have life in them. And come from the earth. Such as aluminum etc...A properly raised child will not kick a can or throw a rock cause it has living minerals and life in it.As so does the water.
My Tribal protocol is strict and the women must always carry them self in a proper way.
Warriors carry them self with pride and honor and they protect the women and children with a great fierceness...

Northern Cheyenne men only have one wife and we do not eat dogs like the other tribes heehee !!!

Or social gatherings are called Powwow's. And we also have special days to honor our elders...
We love and respect our elders and treat them like diamonds.
An elder is never left without a family with in our tribe. If they have no family or no one to take care of them they will be taken care of by a family so they can have a happy life knowing they are loved and cherished...
There's so much more with so little time to talk about. I will update you on certain things as we go along.
Friday I will start Story telling and after that courting and marriage protocal. Something I know Kiddo And Sweet Pepper will love...
My bro Raffi and the single guys will love to learn how to do a traditional courtship !!!
Sky can learn a few things too.Instead of waiting on BB'S wedding date he can do a trick marriage heehee !!!

I need to know who are the most oldest birds on BC...
There will be something very special for them.

Love Panther Bigfoot

  Hi Raffi
We have 2 good things to say about the rain in June: we didn't have to water any plants other than those on the porch and window; the nights have been cool enough to open windows and just use an overhead fan. Now it's July, though, so we hope the weather changes. It was a beautiful day yesterday, and today looks pretty good too. It stayed cool until about 1 yesterday, so mom got a cabinet cleaned out before she went to the pool. There's not much news, we are kind of in a holding pattern until the kitchen work starts. Hope you are having a great summer day and getting lots of love. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Raffikki
Thanks for liking the patriotic washcloths. They were fun to knit.

So glad you got thru the storm. Never know with the wind if it knocks trees over and such. Yuck to the hot and humid. We were hot and that was enough.

More babysitting yesterday. Aside from eating most of it was walking around eggsploring and trying to open or reach stuff. She wanted to come see us but mom only lets her near us if being held.

Can't wait to see a pic of the finished baby cloth. Those are fun to make too. Mom has a whole leaftet of designs and of course can find so many, many free patterns online.

Yes, Battle Creek area had two. Mom remembers one that shook her bank building (Troy) about 25 years ago.
We have had 3 showings in less than 2 weeks. One came back again tonight.

It was a dreary day today. But, I think the sun will be back soon with 70 degrees! I hope so, I'm tired of all this rain. Meijer's was so crowded that my parronts said it was like a feeding frenzy. They just grabbed some groceries and came home! The holiday tourists are here!

  Hi Raffikki
and Momma Erin!
This morning was a very dark as night morning.It got so dark Mom had to put the lights on so we could see.Then around 9:00am the thunder rolled out and the lightening came and then it really rained so hard you couldn't see out any of the windows and the yard started filling up with water.It came down so heavy and so fast.We had a tornado warning here and there was a water spout in Sandwich over the water there.Mom got us up and fed us and cleaned our cages and then swept our room.While it was still pouring out and thundering and lightening she got dressed and got Dixie ready to go with her.The temperatures for the day were highs of 75 and the lows will be 62.Its 73 at 7:00pm but it sure feels really cold out there right now.It finally stopped and the sun started to come out and Mom put Dixie in his car seat and around 11:00am they finally left to go to Nana's.The traffic was brutal and you couldn't go any faster than 20mph along the roads.Mom met skin sis at Nana's she had left her car off at the repair shop down the street to get the license plate screw fixed and walked down the street to Nana's.Mom got Dixie settled in his cage at Nana's and he got to spend the day with our cousins in the Bird Room there while everyone went out.Mom drove to Falmouth to Comcast first as Nana got a bill where they charged her a return check fee which was wrong and Comcast told her that it was the banks fault that it never got cashed out.Nana had a receipt that she had paid,so Mom drove to the bank and they told her it was Comcast's fault.So now Nana has to call Comcast and talk to the manager there.What a mess!Then they went to Shaws grocery store where Nana returned some oranges that were rotten that she got two days ago.Mom paid her Eversource bill there and they all got some things they needed that were on sale.Then they went back to Mashpee where they went and got some lunch,they all had a burger,which Mom didn't care too much for,it was way too greasy.Then from there they went to Sweet Waves a serve yourself fro yo place,skin sis wanted to take Mom there for her birthday.So they all got a fro yo and then from there they went back to Nana's and Mom collected Dixie and cleaned out his cage and unloaded all Nana's things and brought them in the house for her.Then Mom dropped skin sis off to pick up her car and after everything was unloaded both Mom and skin sis went home.It took Mom forever to get home with all the traffic backed up beyond the rotary and then all the way down the road to home.I think everyone is here for the summer now and no one can move around easily anymore.Mom came home and made dad a frozen fish dinner and unpacked the groceries and put everything away.They sat on the deck for dinner but it was way too late and getting cold again out there so we couldn't come join them.Maybe tomorrow!We all can't thank you enough for all the prayers you are sending for our safety!Mom was so scared,we got 2 and a half inches of rain here an

  Hello Raffi~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I have had a nice day just hanging out with mom!
Well I have 5 new cousins! They are all canaries! Mom's sister took them in after their previous people decided to move to Eastern Washington and did not want to take them along. It's really not a very far move so I have no idea why they decided to let them go. There are 2 brown ones, a boy and a girl, and 3 yellow ones, 2 girls, 1 boy.
When mom's sister got them she saw that one of the little brown ones is sitting on a nest with 3 eggs! Guess that means I'll be having 3 more new cousins pretty soon. Mom's sister asked mom if she would like to have some canaries but mom doesn't know where we would put them and keep them safe from Merlin. Mom's sister has a second bedroom where the budgies and canaries live to keep them safe from her cat. I haven't seen a picture of them yet but I hope to soon.
We have had 8 days of temps over 85. We usually only have 10 for the entire year and it's only July 1st! Guess the weather channel was correct and it's going to be a hot summer here. I have been keeping cool by taking lots of showers. It helps with my molting too!
Enjoy the evening and I hope it is lots of fun!

  Hi Raffi
I behaved! Got out at a few minutes before 10 for my sunbath, which was fine because it is overcast today. Not really any sun, but the UV still comes thru for the feathers and is a lot more comfortable although still a bit humid. And of course, it is still in the upper 80s, but that beats the heck out of the triple digits we had yesterday.

It is Wednesday which means Mom goes to the gym in the afternoon. Hopefully today she will remember to eat, because on Monday she totally forgot lunch and dinner. Why doesn't that woman get hungry like a normal human? At least I got plenty of nutriberries and my pellets, but I really like sharing her food with her. Yesterday we had a nice roast beef wrap, which was greyt except for all the stupid spinach she piled on there. Needless to say she was wearing it on her shoulder by the time we were done eating. Today I think there is left over pasta. Yay!

And don't forget that my good buddy, Panther, begins his BOTM campaign today. We have spent some quality time coming up with an amazing campaign (I was so proud to help), and I know you will all love it. Don't want to spoil the secret though, so you will just have to wait and see....

  Hi Raffi
Nice beach pic!
Well, mom did manage a couple of hours at the pool yesterday because it got kind of sunny around 1. Then she, her sister and brother in law went to dinner and to Barnes and Noble in the pouring rain. She had coupons and so did her sis, and it was Barnes and Noble, after all.
Mom was laughing yesterday too, because of the spice cabinet. Do you want to take a guess at how many ancient spices were in the back? Mom was shocked! There were also some extracts in there that dated from when she was teaching and used them in science classes. They're gone now, since she's been retired for 16 years.
One cupboard down, several more to go, but mom is doing it slowly.
Today is the anniversary of the day Gizmo left us, so mom has been thinking of him. Then she saw his avatar on the calendar page and kind of lost it for a little bit. I think she'll be okay now, though.
It's really overcast again today, but it's supposed to clear up by noon. If so, you know where mom will be, and if not, she'll be back in that kitchen.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of good weather, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Willie

My name is Panther Bigfoot...I am the grandson and of many generations of the Northern Cheyenne Native American Tribe.
My big brother Kevin Bigfoot is my owner.He is in the U.S Army and he fights for us and our freedom...

I was rescued on the Panthers football field after a football
game in which my big brother played football for...
One dark and cold night I came out of the dark still a baby...
I was cold and starving and needed help.
My mommy and Kevin picked me up and brought me to my new forever home...
I am now part of my loving family and part of the greatest tribe of Warriors in Native American history...

This month I will be taking you to a place in time that not too many know about and still exists...
The Northern Cheyenne Indian reservation in Lame deer Montana.

All the accounts are real and as a baby I used to listen to our elders tell us about the real truth.
All these words are spoken from generation to generation and have not changed.
Starting Thursday I will be taking you there so be ready for an adventure about my family,tribe and friends and our customs !!!

Much Love to my sweet family clan
Love your bro
Panther

  Hi Raffikki
V4U today. As usual, mom is behind with answering our blogs. We're having lots of hot and humid weather here, but rain is on the way, and supposedly lots of it. No complaints from us, we sure need it. The summer berries sure have been good and sweet. We make sure that berries are on the grocery list, because we look forward to some everyday. Wishing you a nice day. From, Marigold

Come visit me, Mayo, Dandy & Marigold.

  Hi, Raffikki
Hopefully no power loss during the thunderstorm. Our heatwave started and temps are in the 90s. Tolerable since not humid and still have a lil breeze. Still, mom is not staying outside for any length of time just going quickly from the a/c car to an a/c building.

The grand's party was perfect. Mom bought her some shoes and it was the first time she wore any and figured 'em out quickly. Everyone had fun holding her and she was very good. Was a bit scared when mom's brother wanted to hold her as she hasn't seen him much but was okay with mom standing right there. Guess most babies are a tad cautious around men they don't see a lot.

The pink butterfly cloth will look so cute!

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Raff
Weeellll. I was showing the students my awesome wings and wingspan. I also showed them what a normal keel looks like and how I should be properly held during an exam. The students did NOT get to handle me that day but the vet tech was demonstrating with me. I like the vet tech and was very happy and cuddly. In fact when she came to get me I wouldn't behave for daddy and she came in the room and I came lickety split to her lol.

Rudy got the hands on treatment and after he had a bit of flying time he seemed to enjoy it. They got to feel his keel and look at his wings and listen to him mumbling lol.

Hope your storms are not too bad. We wouldn't mind some more rain here ... other than it makes the grass grow to fast and mom doesn't need to do anymore yard work for awhile. Gotta run, stay safe. Hugs.
Love Cappy

  Hi Raffi
Mom is still struggling with the arm. It does ok for awhile and then hurts like crazy for awhile. She is also noticing some numbness in her hand but that also comes and goes ... maybe she pinched a nerve while she was working? She is gritting her teeth and toughing it out though.

I think the folks are headed to the g-parronts for the 4th and we are not invited .... hmmmpgh, think that is rude. However mom is off work on the 3rd and we should all have some time in the aviary.

Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.
Love Dory

Tuesday evening Dad and Uncle Geno went to a special event at Parkside Candies.
The evening included 'Make Your Own Sundaes' at the ice cream counter and a tour of the candy factory. Much of the original equipment from 1927 is used to make all kinds of candies.
They even gave 20% discount on candies bought that evening.
A great time! [Cue 'Willy Wonka' music].
Fortunately Dad did NOT get turned into a giant blueberry!

Cappy asks if I'm back to normal now - yes, no more sore spot - I'm feeling great. Thank you.

  Hi Raffikki
Thanks, making 25K in less than 4 years is pretty good I think. I was very happy!
Well, we have had 3 showings in a week and a half. Hope someone likes it enough to buy it.
It's monsoon season today up here! It rained so hard twice today that you couldn't see your wings! I thought I was turning into a duck!
Downstate near Battle Creek MI, they had an earthquake of 3.3 today. The last one (4.2) was May 4, 2015. Not a good weather day in Michigan.
I had a good day today and I'm done with meds ... YAY!
Hugs

  Hi Raffikki!
“Hello Every Birdie! Today is the last day of June, and my last Bird of the Month blog. For our last trip, we are going to be visit Tokyo, Japan. Our first stop is going to be the Imperial Palace. Let’s go!” They arrive at the Imperial Palace grounds, which is the main residence of the Emperor of Japan. They take a tour of the grounds, but aren’t allowed to enter the buildings. Next they head to the Edo Tokyo Museum, which a museum of the history of Tokyo during the Edo period. They see the life-size replica of the Nihonashi, which was the bridge leading into Edo, and they see scale models of towns and buildings from the Edo, Meiji and Showa periods. Next they visit the Shinjuka Gyoen National Garden. They stroll through the gardens, and see beautiful trees, plants, and ponds. It is very calm and peaceful there. After that they visit the Ueno Zoo. At the zoo, they see Red Pandas, Japanese Black Bears, Sumantran Tigers, Capybaras, and many other animals. Next they head to Tokyo DisneySea. They see the shows and go on the rides there, and have a lot of fun. After, they visit Tokyo National Museum, which is the oldest Japanese national museum. They see lots of interesting things there. After they are finished there, the visit the Tokyo Skytree. They head to the observation tower, and up there they have a lovely view of Tokyo. When they are done up there, they eat dinner at a yummy Japanese restaurant, and then head to a hotel. – Thanks so much for voting for me all month. I have had such a fun time with you guys! I’m so excited to see if I win! (: I’ll see you tomorrow! Hugs, Jester

  Hi Raffi, Pumbaa & Max
thankyou for your kind condolences on our doggie. the house seems empty with her passing. last night the bad budgies, Boo Boo and i paid our respect to our beloved household member by being eerily quiet. the parents are having a very hard time coping. the doggie was very happy on the car ride to the vet and wasn't scared at all since she spent so much time at the vets to begin with. dad told mom it would be worse if they waited until doggie was near death. with kidney failure organs shut down very quickly and it would have been a matter of days. mom kissed doggie on the nose and through her tears told doggie goodbye and i love you and then doggie licked her face and was gone. mom and dad would have gone to the ends of the earth to try and save doggie.

love Cori, Boo Boo and for once the not so bad budgies

Come visit me, Paddy Cake & Piddy Girl, CORI vote PANTHER 245623 & BOO BOO vote PANTHER 245623.

Still gloomy here the weather guessers lied and said it would be sunny today but they were wrong.At least it's not as humid as yesterday and staying in the 70's so its comfortable.
No plans here for the holiday weekend since it's my moms weekend to work :(
Have a good buddy.
