  Hi, Raffikki
Our mom has done much the same when seeing yarn on sale. There is some she decided she didn't like so gave to her sis to donate so someone else who might not be able to afford yarn will be able to have some.

Not sure have a set of size 50 needles. Seen how huge it is and doubted wanted to tackle using 'em. Sounds like your mom needs to finish that afghan before it starts to get too warm out if on her lap when knitting on it. Have to move the stitches manually? Yikes!

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

  Hi Raffi
even when we were having the warmer weather mom was feeling very cold which she thought was strange. 70degrees outside and mom was freezing. last night when mom went to bed she couldn't get warm and kept feeling colder and colder. she also felt very nauseous. when she woke up this morning she still felt cold and just felt plain rotten. tonight she has a nasty sore throat and all she wants to do is sleep. she must have picked up a virus.

One time, my dad took a pic of mom standing outside next to her KY Derby Party sign. She was wearing a winter coat and her derby hat ... that nasty white stuff was all around! That was so wrong!!!
No, mom is just starting to get the house ready. She has her party good s ready and Tuesday she will shop for the food. Meanwhile, I keep telling her to get busy on the Milonga Derby race!!!
It was a good morning at the perch today. We had sun and it melted the snow. But, that cold wind came back.
We need some warm temps up here!

  Hi Raffikki
Dixie is so happy that Momma Erin and Poppa Jim are there to help them decide which kites to pick out!There are just too many of them for their eyes to take in all at once!
We never got the snow here which is good,but we're getting the cold weather back again!
This morning was a coldish sunny morning with our highs for the day of 50 and our lows will be 35,its 46 right now.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and fed us and swept up our room and got all the trash loaded in the car,Dixie was put in his carrier and then he and Mom took off to Nana's.When they got there,Nana was still working with Amy her PT VNA doing exercises so Mom went and got her mail,and collected her bird room trash and got her other trash and loaded everything in Nana's car to take to the dump.Then as soon as Amy left,Nana got ready to go and they went to the dump and then to the bank to do some banking business for skin sis,then they went to Walgreen's so Nana could return something that wasn't going to work,then by the time they came home it was after 2:00pm.So Nana made a salad with tuna for lunch and then Mom cleaned Nana's ears out with the ear candles she made and then Nana did Mom's ears.Both Mom and Nana visited for a while and just when Mom was ready to leave skin bro called Mom and wanted her to get him a gift card in Stop&Shop so he could pay his car insurance,so Mom had to dig up $164.00 to pay for the card($6.00 activation fee) and put the rest of the amount on the card so he could pay his insurance.Mom took Dixie into the store with him because she didn't want to leave him in the car as it was really getting cold outside,Dixie was very good,snuggling inside Mom's coat,he had his harness and leash on,no one knew he was there.Mom had to really look hard to find the right gift card,it took her 15 minutes and she still had the wrong one,then while she was waiting in line,the person in back of her found the right card at the checkout.Mom finally got through the check out and went home,when she got out of the car and saw the amount she was so upset,they put the wrong amount down.So she was ready to head back after putting Dixie back in his cage when Dad saw how upset she was so he took her all the way back to Mashpee.Then while Mom was there she remembered she forgot to pick up Nana's outgoing mail so dad drove her back to Nana's so Mom could pick up her mail.Mom came home and got dad a late dinner and then had to deal with other stressful things with skin bro.Mom is so tired and hopes that tomorrow she will be able to have some time for herself. I'm sorry this is short but Mom is so tired and she's gonna fall asleep on me!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Loving you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Loving you always and forever,my sweet wonderful buddy,Love your buddy Dixie

Once again it was too cold out for a sunbath. They forecasted a high of 65, but right now it is only 59 degrees. Mom is wearing sweats, which is her cold weather gear. Tomorrow might be warm enough, but then Sunday and Monday should actually be hot with a high in the 80s! Talk about your weird weather.

Well, voting for the Hat Contest begins today, and we already have had a good turn out at the polls. Don't forget that each flock gets two votes per day: one for a gent and one for a lady. You won't want to waste a single day of voting, because there are some really terrific pics in the gallery of Milonga page #165848; in fact, every single picture is a real winner! Just choose your favorites and list the numbers of the pics. Simple and easy!

I was in bite mode this morning, but Mom detected it and before I could even get past my first fake bite she warned me "No Biting!" She doesn't yell, but I could tell she meant it. And every time I would start to do the bite body language, I would get another "No Biting!". So I didn't bite, but I do have to say she is a real spoil sport.

  Hi Raffi
I love your derby pic, you look great! So dapper!
It's another cool day, in the mid 40s right now, but maybe it will be warmer next week.
Yesterday mom and her sis went to the President's Circle open house and reception at the Animal Rescue League. Between the shelter and the center, they treated over 12,000 animals last year! You already heard about the nearly 3000 wildlife animals and their success rate, and now here's the great news--ARL adopted out over 7000 of the 9000 animals they took in, isn't that fantastic? Mom's sis was glad there were no kittens in yet this year, but mom is hoping she will go back in a couple of weeks, when they will be inundated with kittens, and pick one up for herself.
This morning mom got to do the avian nursery. She was so glad to be somewhere other than the RVS room again. It was a real pleasure to clean bird cages and feed birds. There is a red bellied woodpecker in there right now, as well as robins, doves, and a waxwing. The center was very happy to accept mom's check for Peppino's hugs and kisses for $105. It will help a lot. Mom also signed up to do a tour there on Tuesday and to work the marathon event on Friday of next week. Hope she can just get a morning shift for that event.
I hope you are having a fantastic day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Raffi and Pumbaa
HOWDY BC partners, Mikey D here as we ponder just how we're gonna save both Miss Falco and Jesse from the talons of some nasty outlaw member of Black Bart's gang. As we spread out to search every nook and cranny of this Old Ghost Town, Miss Falco is busy dealin' a nasty blow to her bird-napper.
"Oh, I am so angry about my friend Falco being birdnapped by that nasty ol' hawk. I can't wait to get my six-shooter pointed in his direction. We'll show him we don't take kindly to our friends being bushwhacked!" Kiddo shouts as he shoulders open the door to the blacksmith's shop beside the Livery stable. He and Angel-tiel bolt inside, guns at the ready. A group of birdies follow them inside as they check every inch of the ole' buildin' " nuthin' here, let's keep goin'"
Jesse can hear his bird-napper outside as they talk softly about what was takin' place back in town. He hears Falco's name mentioned and his anger grows. He tries to call out, but the cloth tied around his beak prevents him making a sound. He sits thinking for a moment then worried for Falco,
"I MUST get free and save Falco. That nasty, foul-smellin' Hawk's gonna find out who I am" with that Jesse begins to swarm and wiggle, working to loosen his bindings. He pulls and tugs and finally feels the ropes begin to give a little slack.
" Did that hurt?" Falco asks coyly, trying hard to find a grin, " a little ol' girl couldn't hurt someone as strong as you?" she giggles out loud, then seeing Hawk-eyes look, she stops with difficulty .
"You just be settin' there and behavin' Black Bart will be along right shortly to deal with ya and your band of goodie-two-shoes"
BB sneaks out the back door of the jail to do some lookin' around for Jesse on her own. "Maybe he is not even being held in this ghost town any more! There is a old mine shaft in the hills close by" so BB mounts Sundancer & heads out to do more scouting. Riding north, she works her way up towards the mine from the back end. Tying Sundancer to a bush she grabs her riffle from the scabbard and checks her six-shooter, then carefully makes her way to a large boulder just above the mine's entrance. There, she hankers down to listen carefully as she watches two of Black Bart's gang pacin' nervously back 'n' forth.
"We better leave Jesse here and go see to gettin' Bart outta jail." a small, wiry bird tells his partner, a gangly sea gull in ragged clothes. She sees his dirty hat nod, then both head towards the north east where their horses had been hitched. BB grins, "the horses are long gone towards the south west.' She chuckles softly to herself as she inches closer to the mine's entrance.
"If I were you I'd be lettin' me go mighty fast, my friends are headin' this way right now and it ain't gonna go well for you!" Falco tells her bird-napper. He peers out the dusty window, what he sees makes him cringe.

  Hi, Raffikki
Can't blame your mom and skinsis for stocking up while the yarn was on sale. Always nice to have the pretty colors even if not using right away. Sounds like your mom might not want to use that thick fuzzy yarn ever again. Would think with those gigantic needles she'd be more done but know skinsis wants it massive. Does she know how heavy that will make it?

We imagine that with a big storm moving over the lake it would displace the water? Do most people stay put during the height of the storm? Would not want to be outside with winds that strong and rain falling, etc. Know tornadoes can pick up stuff and that would hurt people too.

  Hi Raffi
one more thing about spiders……... Spiders

You should always keep a spider
At least one in every room
Give them a little corner
With an offering of food

They'll spin away at night
And they'll hunt for you by day
Keeping your house clean of pest's
In their very special way

So do not go hard with insect spray
When bluebottle's and flies come your way
Remember the little spider's
Who hide themselves away

Today was day 3 of new snow ... this is getting old for me!
Today was cold and windy with light snow and a high of 30 degrees. This is wrong! I'm protesting, I want 70 degrees! I had to drink my hot tea with my fuzzy slippers on. I should be wearing flip flops!

Dixie tells Raffi that he and Cydney are very special to him as are his cousins!He's so lucky to be able to spend time with Raffi and his cousins!
Skin bro finally got his car back and now all he needs is his inspection sticker!Nana is doing really well except she over did it the other day and her leg is swelled up again.She tried to do her own vacuuming and did the bird room and the living room,then she had to sit down for a while and take it easy so her leg could rest up!Mom is hoping that she'll not want to do too much tomorrow as she really needs to rest that leg more,she even walked across the street and got her own mail today by herself with her walker!Skin sis is doing better and is going to start practicing going down the stairs with her VNA by next week or so!I just loved being able to sit in the sunshine and I hope that the sun will come back again.Right now its getting to be on the cold side and they're talking snow here for tomorrow!This is awful,its going to be May already and we're still getting snow?UGGGGGGH!

Cydney and you are my favorite couple!Cydney has the sweetest family and are so loving and kind!
This morning started out nice and sunny not very bright but at least it was sunny and cheery,then by late morning the sun was squeezed out of the sky by lots of dark grey clouds and the wind picked up.The highs for the day were 50 and the lows are to be 35 its 46 right now,we nearly made it to 50 but the temperatures quickly started to drop.It looks like its going to rain any minute now.Mom's been home with us all day trying to catch up on all her house chores she never seems to get finished in a days time.She still has to collect the trash and get that ready to take tomorrow to the dump and she has to call the hardware store to see if they have something she needs before she tries going there and finding out they don't have what she wants after all.

You are in, my friend!!

No sunbath today for the simple reason that there is no sun to speak of. Now if it was warm enough, Mom would get me out there anyway since we all know the UV comes thru the clouds. However it is just a couple degrees too cool for Mom to feel good about taking me outside. I have her all day though, so I don't care.

We had another serving of leftover gumbo and fresh spinach for lunch. Mom was amazed when once again I ate a tiny piece of spinach. I am just patronizing her, of course, but it did result in lots of skritches and kisses so I guess it was worth it. And I ate a bit of everything in the gumbo, not just the rice...with the exception of that nasty okra, of course.

Today is the last day for entries in the Derby Hat Contest, and tomorrow voting begins. May I suggest that you all go over to the Milonga page and check out the 27 (so far) entries and don't forget there is a second page to the gallery. That way you can admire the many imaginative and attractive pics you will be voting for tomorrow. That will be one vote per flock for a gent and one for a lady (Piddy and Paddy are in the lady's division), and you will want to come back and vote again every single day thru May 7th.

  Hello Raffi~
I hope you are having a fantastic day! We are getting mom ready to head back to work tonight. She'll have to work 6 days this week but then she will have a 3 day weekend! YAY! They are going to go see Avengers II! I will have to wait for the DVD since I hear that movie theaters are not a good place for birds!
I have been busy this morning deleting birds from the hatchday list and the memorial list. I usually delete a bird who has not been on BC for a year since I figure after a year they probably aren't coming back. Today I had several request from flocks to delete their names. Some of their pages have been deleted also. They have other projects they are going to be working on and will not have the time for the BC right now. If you see a friend missing from the list, I did not mess up, it was just a request from the flock!
I hope your day is spectacular and that you get to do lots of fun things!!

All I can say is that humans sometimes see things that aren't there, like cats and dogs falling from the sky.
Mom saw SNOW on her way home from the museum today! Really, snow!!! It's chilly out there, and gray and cloudy, but who thought snow would show up? Hope it starts feeling like spring again soon, and not fall.
This morning mom only had one tour at the museum, and it was a lot of fun. The group was second grade again, but they were cute and there were only 8 in the group so that made it easy. It was an animal tour, too, and mom got to start in birds just the way it should be, haha. Later this evening mom is attending a donor event at the Animal Rescue League Shelter. They do this every year, and mom likes to go because it gives her a chance to socialize with some of her colleagues that she doesn't see very often. Her sister is going with her this year, too, so that should be interesting. It's been a couple of years since her sister lost a cat, so maybe she'll see somebody tonight that needs her to adopt him/her.
We were sad to read that the pie shop and the flower shop are going to close. We have fond memories of both of them, especially the pie shop, where we make deliveries twice a week.
I hope you are having better weather than we are, and that you are getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Raffi
Howdy partners, no time to be talkin' not with Black Bart heading with his gang to the ole' jail. Pearl and Silver smile " What a greyt feeling to be taking Black Bart and his cronies to lockdown (where they deserve to be) but we cowbirdies still don't have Jesse back." BB is riding out of the mountains towards the ghost town when she sees Falco being jerked into the general store. by a scruffy-lookin' Hawk. She slaps Sundancer on the shoulder and encourage her into a gallop as she winds her way towards the Ghost Town. "What foul deeds are going on now" she thinks. BB rides around town to scout things out & sees a strange horse out back of the general store. On the other side of town BB sees Boss D & the wagon crews putten Black Bart's gang in the jail house. BB enters the jails back door and tells every birdie what see saw at the general store. "It seems we have 2 birds being held hostage now"
Everybirdie turns around alarmed at the sudden sound of BB's voice. The news that Miss Falco has been bird-napped shocks everybird silent. "Oh no, not Falco! We have to rescue her from that awful hawk. I don't like hawks at all, ' Kiddo exclaims
Mikey D looks from Kiddo to Sky, then to the others searching for an answer. " We must move fast. Jesse and Falco are somewhere in town. "BART!," he growls angrily, " where ya got Jesse stashed? and NO! funny talk or you and your cronies are gotten be sorry!"
Black Bart begins to laugh, " now ain't ya all in a real bind? If' 'n ya don't set us free, you ain't findin' either Jesse or this Miss Falco either!" his eerie laughter echos in the old jail house.
"We have your gang hog-tied outside in the wagons. You make us a trade, we'll let ya have your lice-bitten hooligans back!" Sky says, an anger fillin' his eyes like a wildfire. Cappy marches Bart and his hooligans into the jail cell and locks them up, sittin' down to keep watch so there is NO jail breaks! " Ya' ll set outta here to search, find Jesse and Falco. I'll make sure our guests are all comfy-cozy."
The team bolts from the jail, spreadin' out to search for their friends, now held captive. Raffikki turns to Cookie and Pookie, " I bet Falco can hold her own!" they laugh a small worried laugh, then fly down the street to search in the livery stable.
Falco sits quietly, eying her captor. " Ya know they're gonna find me, and you'll end up gettin' your tail-feathers trimmed?" she grins straighten up under his angry glare.
" Now, no sassin' from ya missie" he yells walkin' over to within inches of her beak.
"Bad move buster" she yells, as she stomps down on his toes with her cow-girl boots, bitin' him on the wing at the same time.
"OWWWW" Hawk-eye screams, hoppin' on one foot, holdin' his wing with the other."Now, you're gonna get it, no more carryin' on!"

  Hi Raffi
Mom found the place on FaceBook at: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ginis-Birdiebread-C- ones-and-Muffins
The lady also sells on Ebay. She is small business in Florida and makes these fresh in her kitchen.

Mom gave me the P'Banutty cone last night and all but Dory decimated them lol. Dory is just way too picky ... silly girl doesn't know what she is missing.

Have a great day. Hugs.
Love Rudy

Come visit me, Captain (Cappy), Rudy, Dory & Dixie.

  Hi, Raffikki
Our mom hasn't been to a craft store in awhile (didn't want to be tempted). She gets coupons occasionally for Michael's and Joann's so could get a discount. Your mom and skinsis must've seen some great colors or else cotton yarn was on sale, heehee. So easy to knit since don't need to keep referring to a pattern. Good to keep working on that afghan. It'll be finished eventually if just do a few rows everyday.

No rain for us. Areas north of us got some as eggspected. At least some parts of CA got some.

Guess so long as one is prepared then being under tornado or hurricane watch isn't that bad. We know you do not hesitate if need to get into the carrier for safety.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

Mom has been diffusing Essential Oils for our hormones and its been working ... until the diffusers bit the dust ... honest I didn't do anything to them! Yep, moms feeling better .... picking up 20lbs from a chest freezer that mom has to practically crawl in .... not a pretty picture or sound lol. Have a great day my friend. V4U. Hugs.

  It's getting time to calm the four fids
so poppa Rich takes them to the waterfront to teach them how to skip stones ! First he shows them the right size and weight and puts on into each fids' wing. Then he calls NOW ! Cookie's stone plunks down, Scarly and Raffi's skip once before sinking, but look at Teiko ! Like he's been skipping stones all his life !

Finally, poppa Rich gathers the fids, piggies and bunnies and tells them it's time to head home. If they hurry and get buckled maybe they'll have time to stop for ICE CREAM on the way home !

Come visit me, Cookie and Goldencents, BC Library Now Open & Fly with the angels my Sally.

  Hi Raffikki
I hope none of us have any problems with tornadoes or hurricanes. It seems that in MI, Washtenaw, Oakland, Livingston get hit the most ... wonder why?
Well, we had day two of snow. It was completely white this morning :(
I wasn't happy to see the snow was back. It should stop by 9am tomorrow. Then we will have a partly cloudy Thursday with 34 degrees. It better get warm for May! I'm back in my footie pj's.
Happy Earth Day! Hugs ...

  HELLO FROM LITTLE LUCY
Hi Raffi,,
I can’t believe how cold and windy it was today, AND…it SNOWED! Where did spring go?? Mommy made cranberry bread last night for her Bible Study today. There was a little left and she brought it home and gave birdies some. Oooo, that was so delicious! I love it when Mommy bakes!

Mommy only boards one family's birds at a time. The most she's had at one time are three. Usually there's only one or two birdies though. It is fun, but it's also a lot of extra work.
Lots of Love and Hugs from Your Friend, Little Miss Lucy♥

Come visit me, Finnegan - "HI!" FROM THE DERBY!, Daisy - R.I.P. - BOTW 9/17-9/23/07 & Miss Lucy Blue at the Derby.

Start munching on their goldfish crackers while they wait for another bite on their lines.Soon with the gentle rocking of the boat and the warm sun shinning down on them they fall fast asleep.

  Hi Raffikki
Dixie is just so happy to be here with Raffi and he's just loving the fact that he can feed the baby duckies and their parronts too!Dixie can't believe just how much a baby duckie can eat?And the sunshine on the dock feels so good to his twisted toes and aching legs and feet!The hot boards are so nice and feel so comforting on his feet and toes!
Dixie is so proud to have his two best friends together!Cydney is so lucky to have such a wonderful gentle bird like Raffi for her date!
Skin bro finally got his car back today but he still has to get the inspection sticker.It was such a nice day here today until the late afternoon!
This morning dawned a beautiful sunny day and our highs for the day were 62 with the lows being 41. Its 57 right now at 5:30pm. Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned and then she packed up Dixie in his carrier and took off to Nana's and as she was getting there the VNA who gives her showers was leaving.Mom went in and helped fix Nana's VCR as it wasn't working and hopefully what she did will get it right again.Then she moved something out of her bathtub for her and helped her find her glasses that had fallen on the floor by her recliner.Dixie was happily in the sun room sitting in the sunshine there.Then Mom fixed Nana's alarm clock in her bedroom for her as she couldn't get it to work either.Then they took off to skin sis's place to collect her bills and get them paid and when she got to skin sis's apartment skin sis wanted Mom to install her grab bar for her in her shower so Mom did that also,Nana was in the car waiting and skin sis wanted to see Nana so Mom had to turn the car around so they could see each other.Then from there Mom drove to Dollar Tree as Nana needed something there and from there they went to Shaws/Star grocery and they bought a few items that they needed.Then they went to Bobby Byrnes to have a nacho dish for lunch and went home from there.They tried to get to the Post Office for skin sis's bills but there was no place to park anywhere around there and Mom didn't feel like running all over the place just to get to the Post office to mail some letters so Mom will put them in our mail box tomorrow for the mail person to take.When Mom and Nana got back to her house they sat and had some coffee.Nana was hurting as she had used her cane the whole time they were out in the stores.Nana had given herself the shower today while the VNA stood close by in case she was needed.When Mom came home it was starting to get really windy out there and all the leaves were blowing all over the road.And the temperature dropped a bit and its starting to get cold.Mom came home and cleaned out our cages for the night and dad had already given us our snacks.Dixie got to finally get to ride home with Mom in the car seat and was he ever so eggcited!He loved every minute of the ride home,happy to be finally back on the carseat and not in the carrier!
Today is our fister Celine's 17th hatchday.Mom promises to bake her a special
