  Hi Raffi
That's about as mad as we ever saw Coach Tomlin too, but he was right, they are undisciplined. All those 15 yard penalties didn't help them at all, and they really messed up their last possession.
Today is going to be a quiet one, mom will do some shopping, then later go to dinner with her sis, but she's ours for the day. Of course, that means major cage cleaning, but as long as she's with us, we love it.
Today was Falco's last day on the antibiotics, YAY. Yesterday she flew into the kitchen and solicited a bath, which is the first time that's happened since she hurt my leg in July. Mom thinks the wound on her side is nearly healed, there is just one tiny hard spot left. She will continue to put the healing ointment on it, but Miss Falco is doing quite well now! Thank you for all the support and prayers, Mom and Falco really appreciate it.
I hope you are having another beautiful day, we sure are. It's supposed to cloud up later and maybe rain, but it sure is nice right now. I also hope you get lots of hugs and scritchies today. Hugs from me, Willie

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

  Morning Raffi dear heart, from LaLo, & Jenny
Happy ToosDay every birdie, it is much cooler today, but it feels so good! Dad's VA visit went better than he could have wished for, the right leg is normal, BP is great, no infection, potassium levels back to normal, but the left leg is coming along more slowly! His reward is yet another VA visit next week, oh joy! Today dad's best friend is coming over to help us set up our new phone, is not an inexpensive one but dad will be able to take pictures and send them to friends, my dad is a real computer nerd, LOL! Have a great day dear friends, and give my love to all in you happy home, see ya tomorrow...

All my love forever, Ms LaLo, Jenny, & my family

Unfortunately yes I am still in lockdown. Mom says I will be until daddy heals from that nasty bite. Momma is worried that dad may be reaching his breaking point with me. Mom sure hopes not but then again she doesn't think she could handle what dad has gone through.

Mom wishes I could tell her why I like to just up and bite daddy ... I am at a loss for words. Hope you have a happy TOOsday. V4U. Hugs.

  Hi, Raffikki
The cars at the show the parronts stumbled upon had old timey cars. Some had the rumble seats and the running board on the side. There's been a few times (always on Sunday) see antique cars being driven around in traffic.

Busy day for mom at work as much of the summer things have been clearanced out. More Christmas things are now on the shelf. Just glad the music hasn't started yet.

Warm up has begun. Got to the mid 70s yesterday but supposed to get into the 80s (or higher depending on where one lives) by mid week. Hopefully it comes and goes quickly.

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

  Angel Sally comes down the dock dancing to the
Samba music like in the movie Rio 2. She shakes and shimmys down the dock while the music wakes up Raffikins and his tail feathers start dancing back and forth with it without him.

Hahahaha Angel Sally laughs and says come samba with me and takes him by the wing tips and they start to shake up the dock with their feet movement.

The dock is shaking back and forth waking up the duckies giving then some little wave action.

They all start clapping as they wake up and see Raffikins Astaire and Miss Sallykins Rogers shake up the dock floor with their samba dancing.

Boy this was fun says Angel Sally but I think we might have given the duckies some sea sickness. Little tidal waves from our dancing, giggles Angel Sally. Ooh Raffi says they'll be okay, see they're hungry as a horse!! Hehehehe!!

Okay if you say so, says Angel Sally as the cuddle together and feed the wave exhausted duckies. Still hungry tho, so it couldn't have been that bad right ?? :)

Raffikins says your a firecracker Angel Sallykins Rogers. Oh? Why is that?

You light up my life! :). Well, you light up mine too! They snuggle and watch the sunrise their favorite time of day.

Your moves are very good says Raffi, thank you says Angel Sally. I learned it from watching the movie Rio2. :). I paid attention to the detail of their footwork and practiced before I came here. How did I do??

Just perfect he says! Oh I'm glad, I was worried I might forget how to move. But the music just makes you move so its easy. ;)

Love from above,

Your forever Angel Sallykins Rogers

The perch works greyt in my stroller. Once you zip it up, it's secure. He put those rubber ends on it to keep it from sliding out. They stick out a bit. I can take a pic if you want me to.
Well, I put away my summer things today. This 50's is NOT summer weather! I'm not going to wait any more for it to show up! I'm sitting here in my hoodie with my fuzzy slippers on.

Last night as skin sis was leaving to go home there were sirens and ambulances flying down our main road here(we are off the main road Rte 149)and dad put his scanner on to find that two sky divers had crash landed.The airport is a few minutes down the road from us and late last night when Mom put the news on our town was the breaking news story,we see the sky divers all the time here while Mom hangs out her clothes out back and when we are sitting on the deck enjoying our BBQ.They sky dive all year round.They were tandem jumping and were supposed to land at the airport and instead landed across the street at a neighbors house and crashed into his garage,the neighbor came out to see them both by his garage doors and called 911 but they later died,one was 29,the student and the teacher was in his 40's.How so very sad.Mom often wondered as she watched them jumping from the plane how they could get the guts to do that?They think that there was a problem with their parachute only opening part way,they had to cut them out of their harnesses in order to separate them to get them help.
It was a dark drab dreary day here,no sun and very much overcast.It got to be 73 but it wasn't the 73 of last month or the month before so we never got to go outside today.Mom kept busy cleaning the house and our room and cages and then she made a stir fry for dinner for when dad came home from work of basmati rice,peas and some of the BBQ'd chicken that she cut up into bite sized pieces and then added the juice she had soaked the chicken in to keep it moist and then sprinkled some teriyaki sauce over that.Dad enjoyed it and then she make brownies for dessert!On the whole it was a very uneventful day here today 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
The grands softball team colors are pink and black so once the autographs go on the pink cast with black marker then the grand will have her team colors too LOL. She also had a pink cast when she broke her thumb but just randomly picked that one. Its nice they arent white like they used to be and can pick colors now too.
I think tonight is going to be one of those long nights on BC where things are slow and wont go. So far we are having lots of problems so hope to get the blogs done at least. The days have been nice here lately but sure takes a long time till it warms up enough I can go outside. Then like yesterday though sometimes the sun decides to hide once it is warm enough out. The trees are starting to change in color too which is always so pretty to see all the brilliant colors they get in the leaves. I am glad I can get on the windowsill behind my play gym and look out when I want to at them too. “Todays are like pistachios. They go fast. So pay attention to today. It is important and delicious“.

I need to start thinking of a halloween costume I can wear to the milonga.
I didnt get a stroller ride yesterday since it was my moms weekend to work and she doesnt get home until a little before 8.It would have been perfect for it though since it was 80 and so sunny.
Today started off nice but now rain has moved in a cool front.

  Hi Raffi
Mom thinks the Steelers should reverse their strategy, do poorly in the first half, then come back and win in the second. Seriously, that was a really messed up game, and not beating Tampa Bay is a disgrace!
Dinner last night wasn't at Khalil's since they were closed for vacation. They went to a different place, but it was still a good night out with friends. Mom kind of had her teeth set for Middle Eastern, but they can go there another time.
This morning at the center mom had a trainee. She has actually been there for awhile, doing Quality Care volunteering. Guess I should explain: the center takes volunteers to do dishes and laundry, these are the Quality care volunteers; they also take reception volunteers, and event volunteers; and they have mostly Animal Care volunteers, like mom, although she does everything. Anyway, the Quality care and reception people can also train for animal care once baby season is over, and it's officially done!
So mom trained her in the menagerie area today, and they fed the foxes outside, too, the permanent residents, that is. Now mom is with us the rest of the day, and we like it like that!
I hope you are having a sunny, beautiful day like we are. We've been on a roll of good weather here for over a week now. I hope you are getting lots of love today, too. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Raffikki
Pearl had a blast barrel racing. It is not as easy as it looks and we congratulate all our winners. Glad you went back to read all the goings on as it was fun.

The parronts saw an antique car show once by accident. They'd gone to a lil beach that has a bunch of shops nearby and they had all the cars in the parking lot. Some of the car colors were bright and obviously not original.

There was a new pic of the grand taken. Mom has yet to download it. Think she needs to edit it a tad as not sure what the surroundings look like.

Yeah, the water is cold and the temps are in the 60's ...BRRRRR! I feel like I live in the North Pole!
I do pretty good in my stroller. You should try it. Dad cut a perch and put rubber tips (made for chairs or canes) on it. Mom puts it right where the screen zipper is. Voila ... I have a stroller perch. I don't like just standing on the bottom.
Last night during the Milonga, a tree that was damaged in a summer storm decided to fall down on our driveway taking the wires with it. We were out of power from 9:40 pm to 1:20 am. Monday we are back to rain. We were only high 60's today. I guess I'll put my shorts and flip flops away.

The grand picked pink for the cast the last time too and is light enough that her friends can autograph it ok.
What a great night it was at the milonga rodeo last night!! So much fun and being with our friends on BC is the best. Great job every birdy!! Today mom said it was a bit cooler and by afternoon when it might have been warm enough to go out for my sun bath the sun ran away so I never got my sun bath today. Mom has a fruit bowl on the kitchen table. I chewed on the apple and mom said I was silly cause every day she cuts up apple in my fruit bowl I get in the afternoon along with lots of other fresh fruits too. Well I wouldn’t leave it alone and was making a big mess so mom took it to my play gym and set it in there for me. It looked like confetti when I was done and mom had to clean the play gym again but mom was glad I picked a healthy snack. “I love you to the moon and back my friend” Leaving a vote along with my note~~Your forever friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi

  Day 28--Ingonish day 1
Hello everybirdie, Angel Girl here with today's BOTM post. I apologize for the lack of blogs the last few days. My typist, Momma Deb was devastated by the loss of our beautiful Cockatoo fister Angel Sassy. It left her lost for words, and I hope that you all have understood. Today we continue on our Cape Breton Tour. Thanks to Ms BB who lead the trail ride to Ingonish, Cape Breton Island, we can now begin to explore, this majestic gem of nature together.
On the east side of Cape Breton Highlands park is located Ingonish. Know for it's fabulous Keltic Lodge resort a world-class 18-hole golf course designed by Stanley Thompson. Golf Magazine ranked it as one of the top 100 courses in the world and the best public course in Canada. George Knudson suggested leaving your clubs behind and just walking the course. The course has been certified by the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program, a program aimed at conserving wildlife habitat in spaces used for other purposes.
The Park area is made up of a mix of Acadian forest of deciduous trees such a Maple, Ash and conifers, mainly at lower elevations. Boreal Froest is found on the plateau and upland areas. Moose, black bears, coyotes and Bald Eagles are the main wildlife inhabitants to this area. Northern Gannets can often be seen from the park's coastal hiking trails, e.g. the Skyline Trail. The park's forests provide habitat for the uncommon Bicknell's Thrush. The Gaspé Shrew, the local name for a smallish variety of the Long-tailed Shrew, Sorex dispar, can be found on rocky slopes in the park. The first nest records of Boreal Owl for Nova Scotia were found in the south west corner of this park
There are many activities to do when visiting this Cape Breton Highlands location. Some of these activities include camping, hiking, sightseeing, swimming, fishing, geocaching, cycling, golfing, picnicking, weddings, kayaking and surfing There are endless swimming options available for all ages in the park. There are five main salt water ocean beaches . The ocean beaches include Ingonish Beach, North Bay Beach, Black Brook Beach and La Block Beach. The two freshwater beaches include Freshwater Lake and Warren Lake. Freshwater Lake and Ingonish Beach are both supervised with a lifeguard during the summer months.
" Come on Angel Girl, let's go swimming" Little Angel calls through the tent door, " it's gorgeous outside today, and maybe we can try some surfing later"
"Oh, ok, give me a few minutes to find my bikini" Angel Girl giggles at her fister's eggcitement about life and having fun.
"Dixie" LA calls, " We're goin' swimming." Little Angel hurries to find Dixie and her beach towel
"You think Pookie will help us learn to surf?" Hulk asks as Little Angel rushes past,

  Hi Raffikki
What a beautiful summer day we had here,the sun was out so bright and the temperatures went all the way to 77 degrees!Mom was so eggcited to feel it so warm outside and she quickly got the sheets off the bed and collected a small amount of laundry to wash together with skin sis's laundry.Skin sis came over early and brought some bacon cheddar burgers and Mom put boneless spare ribs and chicken burgers,hot dog and jalapeño sausages on the grill.We all got to join them for the BBQ on the deck in our deck cages and then Mom put us all in the stroller and Kallie rode the handle bar and we went for a walk with skin sis!It was such a beautiful day out and there was no one around on the streets as we were walking!Mom and skin sis got the laundry done and hung out on the line before we had the BBQ and Mom was busy making dad some fresh sandwiches for his lunch tomorrow for work and getting the coffee maker ready to go!Dad earlier in the morning had Mom show him how she wanted the rhododendrons cut and he spent the day cutting them back and now we can see the dilapidated bird house that the rhododendrons ate up!He only did part of it as he had to chop all the branches smaller so he could burn them when burning season starts again.There sure is a whole lot of them to do yet!Then when we got back from our stroller ride we all got a nice soaking shower and got to dry off in the warm sunshine.We were just so happy to be outside again having a shower and enjoying the warm sunshine and this will be the last of it for a while now so they say!
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 sweet BBF!Love Dixie

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

  Hi Raffi
Mom is becoming an eggspert in all things rice. She had a Japanese boy friend many years ago, and he taught her lots of things to do with rice. And now she is getting creative. Mainly fixing things she would normally put chicken or pork in and just leaving out the meat. She can start eating meat again on 10/20!!

Well, I know everybirdy who was able to make it to last night's milonga had a good time. It was one of the most eggciting events we have ever had right up there
with the Derby and the County Fair. However that is what happens when you got a collaboration of three or more birds putting it together. Thanks again to Taz and Chuey for their fantastic efforts.

I am having a nice day today what with the cooler weather and mid 80 temps with a few fluffy clouds out there. Mom and Dad made a run to the dollar store and the deli, but then when they got back Mom's first stop was lunch with me and then outside for our sunbath. Very nice and several pedestrians for me to squawk at. I love startling them, because none of them noticed me till I blasted them. One lady even jumped....score!

  Hi Raffi
It was sure a fun event. Sorry you missed it, but maybe next year?
What a milonga that was last night! The barrel racing and the mutton busting were both really exciting events, and 'tiels ruled the night! From Queen Snowflake to many of the winners in the events, including Spot, the mutton busting champ, 'tiels were on top! Thanks to Kiddo and his team of great planners, picture takers, and trophy makers! Thanks also to Sam for the great music! It was a night to be remembered for all. We all had a great time, Lizzie's food was extraordinary, as usual, and it was just fun to see everybirdie.
Falco was flattered to be one of the princesses, that was some tough competition. I didn't do well on my sheep, but it was sure fun to try! The one big problem, besides our computer acting up, is that it's just impossible to talk to everybirdie at the events, it's too crowded. Still, we wouldn't trade those nights for anything.
Hope today is bringing you sunshine and more warm weather. Mom is going out to dinner tonight at Khalil's, meeting some friends, but we'll have her all day long! We can even tolerate her watching football, as long as she's with us. Have a wonderful day, get lots of cuddles if you can. Hugs, Willie

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

  Hey Bro
My mommy got us to the milonga but after that we had to stay quite.
My mommy had stuff to do all day and until late last night.
She just checked out the milonga page and found out Snowflake won Rodeo Queen...
Thank you for your daily votes for her.
Today we are having a cool day 74 degrees and then the temps go back up and we are going into another miserable heat wave...
The heat just won't go away !!!
Let's trick our lil bros and give them Sugar free chocolate milk and sugar free cookies.
When they fall asleep we can clean Kevin's room and decorate it for Thanksgiving...

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