My day was good it was another gloomy one though the weather guessers said we would finally see some sun today boy were they wrong. We didn't even see a song of it and it was cold with snow flurries this morning.
Still trying to get all set for Christmas nothing like waiting until the last minute to get things done. Have a good night.

  Hi Raffi
Oh them moms go alot this time of year! Mom thought she was going to get some things done here today but just when she got her cleaning done and started the next project skin sis called. She had went out to start her car to go to the store and it wouldn’t start so mom and dad went over with the battery charger. It started pretty quick and she left it run a while and went to the store and it seems ok. Think the problem was not running it for a while cause they were using BIL car. Mom did come home and did a few more things but the rest are on the list for tomorrow now.

Mom stayed home with me all day today even though she was busy cleaning up the corner of her bedroom from all the junk that got piled in it because Mom was too tired when she came home and just put it there til the next day but since she wasn't home for awhile it never got done,she cleaned out the closet in her room also,even though it didn't look like she got it done!My feet are sore today but I'm getting around with no problems yet so far.Mom keeps giving me warm foot soaks and massages several times a day whenever she's home and that really feels so good to me,but my frother Mario isn't doing too well.He never ate his bean mix this morning and has spent the whole day sleeping so Mom started him back on his meds again hoping that will help him start to feel better again,Mom is getting worried about him again.
Mom will be out again tomorrow running her Friday errands with Nana and finishing up some last minute shopping for Christmas.She's hoping to leave early so she can come back early and be with us!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for my sweet friend! Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hi Raffstinky from your Jen Lynn
Before our visiting nurse got here yesterday, dad addressed and prepped 30 Christmas Cards, something we have always loved to do, but we have forgotten how time consuming this labor of love can be! Not to worry, we will send all 50 cards sooner or later, bear with us! We are having a very normal Winter day in the December MidWest, a little overcast, slightly below freezing, but pretty nice overall! LaLo is slowing daddy down a little, that little heifer can't speak a word, but she is so sweet, she don't have to, she can make a certain noise and dad comes a running, she really is the sweetest bird that has ever lived here, much like Angel Christy! Have a greyt day, and give my love to all in your happy Christmas home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love on throwback Thursday, from Jenny & our Dallas family

  Hi Raffi
Today mom had 2 tours at the museum, one on climate change and biomes with 7th grade, and one with 6th grade called 3 Cultures. The one with the 7th graders was fun, it was interesting to mom to have 2 guys in the new docent class trailing her to see how to do them, too. (She hasn't had men chasing her for the longest time, hahaha.) The second tour had about 100 kids, which meant 10 docents and groups! The halls they visit for 3 cultures are close together, but small. They compare 3 desert cultures, ancient Egypt, Inuits (tundra) from about 100 years ago, and modern Hopi Indians. It's hard not to bump into other docents with their tour groups when the halls are so small and close together, but it's manageable if everyone is going in the same direction.
Anyway, mom is home now and will go out to dinner tonight with her sister. At least the tree and stockings are up and in place! Mom did that yesterday while she was waiting for the furnace people to call about Aunt Gin's house. They called her finally and set up another day, next Tuesday! GAAAAHHH!
I hope you are having a good day and getting some scritches and cuddles today. Hugs, Willie

Short blog today, because I am afraid Mom is pretty upset with me. I bit her again today, and needless to say I am in time out now. It bled which is never good, and since I nailed her hand (and no warning again!) she doesn't like typing much. Hopefully by this afternoon I will be forgiven.

  Hi Raffi
Thanks for your continuing votes! I love hearing from you every day, too.
Today we are taking some public transportation! Not your common bus, subway, or trolley, but the INCLINE! (Pittsburgh does have the trolleys, buses, and a little subway system as well.) For anyone not from around here, the inclines are a way to get from downtown to either Mount Washington or the South Side, depending on which one you take. The first 2 shots are the Duquesne Incline, which goes up from Station Square in town to Mount Washington, a neighborhood of Pittsburgh that offers spectacular views of the downtown area. The next 2 are the Monongahela (or Mon) incline, which goes to the slopes of the South Side of the city. Believe it or not, there used to be public steps every bit as steep as the inclines are, where steelworkers and glassworkers would climb from their jobs to their homes. Imagine going up a couple hundred steps after a long day in the mill!
The inclines were originally used for that same purpose, but today they are mostly a tourist attraction, although some folks still park up there and ride to town because parking is cheaper on the hills. If you are a senior citizen, you ride for free, the same as all the public transportation in the city.
I hope you are having a fun day today and getting some sun. It's cold and kind of snowy here. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi, Raffikki
Think lots of pics need to be taken for the grand's first Christmas. She will undoubtedly enjoy seeing 'em when older.

Not sure if the voting would mess up the blogging or not. However, we usually vote first then blog and if get squawked would try it the other way just to see if it would help. We noticed that when you vote it doesn't refresh the page if someone just sent a blog at least that's what we saw during the milongas.

A bit more rain yesterday morning. It cleared up (no sun) and then started up again in the evening. Getting a good amount and hope it continues thru winter.

i know budgies that have lived here in the past have always been obsessed with Cori but this is the first time that one is coming after me. he flew down again tonight and mom clapped her hands very loud and yelled at him. i hid under the dresser drawer, mom had left partially open, the rest of the night. mom says i am a very good girl for not being aggressive with him but it made her feel bad that i felt the need to hide from him.

This morning was a drab dismal day with pouring rain early in the morning and then the sun came out nicely for a short period of time,then it went back to being miserable and very foggy with the temperatures at 45, the highs were to be 50 and the lows are to be 35.Mom got us up early and cleaned our cages and gave us some Madagascar mix and pellets as she ran out of our bean mix,then skin sis came by and they took off for zumba class and then after they got out from there they went to Nana's and skin bro met them there and they went over the Bridge to Wareham to celebrate Nana's birthday at LongHorn restaurant as the skin sibs wanted to take her out.Mom had shrimp and lobster soup as did Nana and a mixed green salad,then after they were done skin sis ordered the chocolate stampede cake for Nana's birthday and was that ever good.Then they went to Target and did some shopping there,then went back to The Dollar Tree in Wareham as ours was set fire to in Falmouth,then they went back to Nana's and dropped skin bro off as he had to be somewhere for a job and they went to Marshall's and got more shopping done there.By the time they got back to Nana's it was well past 5:00pm,so skin sis drove Mom back home and she got dad a tv dinner as she was too tired to cook and it was too late to take something out,then she cleaned our cages,dad had already gave us our snacks and filled our pellet dishes and put the light on for for us and we were screaming for Mom to close our curtains.We hate seeing the darkness outside,its so scary to us!After Mom put the things she got away and served dad his dinner,she sat down and made out more cards to get in the mail in the morning.

Yes its a fun game and bet it would be a blast at the KB LOL
Mom kept telling dad the commode upstairs was running sometimes but he didn’t listen to mom but today he heard it and was in a hurry then to fix it. Yep the water and sewage bill has been higher so that would be a sign alright but its hard for mom to convince dad of these things. Of course I was in lock down while mom had to clean the overhead commode vanity out and then put everything back once dad was done. She said it needed a good cleaning any way so guess that is one way to look at it LOL.

We had a little rain (.43") again last night! At this rate we might actually have a lawn soon. Mom can't remember what that looked like. We are ahead of the normal annual rainfall at the moment, but since we had three years of drought to make up for it is still a long way till we fill the reservoirs and lakes.

Mom is once again fighting to settle a bill between the insurance company and the hospital; this time it is for the surgery she had done in August and the bill is $100,000!!! She never has a problem with any other hospital than this one, and she will definitely never go there again. All the problems are them. Their billing dept. is in Las Vegas, so Mom thinks they are all off gambling instead of doing their job. Mom is on hold with Blue Cross right now trying to straighten it out since her conversation with the hospital billing person was basically useless.

Other than that I am waiting for my mom time. Since I cannot be around the phone without attacking it, I am in my room till she is done. As you probably guessed she is on long term hold right now. Ah, he came back and it looks like things might be moving along! Hallelujah. Now it is wait and see time.....again!

So now I am on Mom's knee dictating my blog, so it should be much more interesting. Hmmm, I can't think of anything to tell you. Well, it is basketball practice today, so that will be fun on the BC Laker's page. If you aren't on the team, come watch us!

Mom puts walnuts in her fudge, too, but she always keeps a few out for us to munch on.
Happy Hanukkah to those who celebrate.
Last night at dog class, Daisy was a bit vocal, but not too bad. The trainer gave mom more tips to work with her and not let Polly feel left out.
Today mom has to go to her friend's house when the furnace guys come to fix it. Her friend is involved with getting her mom into hospice care, and has to sign papers and talk to the hospice people today.
We haven't heard from the guy who looked at the porch roof yet, so we still don't know how much it will cost to fix it. Mom is hoping it won't be too much, so she can still get the kitchen cabinets refaced or replaced. They are the original ones from the 50s, we think, and the hardware on them is shot. Some don't close well at all, and one of them lost the latch, which can't be found any more, since it's not sold anywhere.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Willie

Thanks for your votes and visits daily! I love hearing from everybirdie.
Yesterday we did everything Heinz, today we are moving to Frick. He was one of those robber baron guys, but he gave back some to the city. Not like Andrew Carnegie, who gave back a ton, but still...
Henry Clay Frick gave Pittsburgh Frick Park, a beautiful space in the eastern part of the city with tennis courts, many playgrounds, walking trails, a nature center, a running track, an exercise track, a bowling green, as well as many picnic pavilions. In my pics today, the fifth and sixth ones are of Frick Art museum, right across from the bowling greens of the park. The Museum isn't part of the park, though. It's a small museum with many beautiful paintings. In a neighboring block is Clayton, a Frick city mansion. One of the pics is the garage. A friend of mom's is curator of the cars. The mansion itself is huge, the rooms are incredible, there is great woodwork inside. Right now it's decked out for the holidays. I don't know if you can see it, but one of the pics shows the staircase draped in greens. There are tours conducted there when people request them.
I hope you are still enjoying your tour of Pittsburgh. I'm having fun bringing to you all the great areas of the city. Hope also that you are having a great day! Hugs, Peppino

No test results yet. I have been distracted by new toys in my cage so haven't really started on that cage grate yet other than a cursory try. I probably should fet on it hard cause I heard mom say the network was out and that means the CappyCam is useless.

Okay, that is rather amusing that trying to vote for us takes you to a 'tiel named Fred? At least it is a 'tiel, heehee. Hmmmm, perhaps with us just send a blog as don't need the votes. Sometimes when BC is being squawky we blog first then vote though you'd have to try and see what happens.

Lots of shopping with skinsis and the grand yesterday. After mom dropped them off it started to rain. So glad it waited as after they left the indoor mall went to a different shopping center where had to walk to each store outside and no one had rain gear. (Skinsis was in flipflops.)

  to get the ball and throw it in.
But it was too late. Sugar steps on the home plate doing her wiggle dance followed by Kiddo and Gus lands on third base as Laka has the ball.
So far no out and 2 runs!
Raffi is up next and he saunters to the plate wiggling his hips getting them loose for the big kick.
Laka pitches the ball and its a pop fly and Falco jumps up and catches the ball in her wing tips. Yay yells her team !!
Aww shucks as Raffi kicks the sand and goes back to home plate.
Now it's Dixie's turn. He does a little jiggle and Laka pitches the ball and he kicks it way out to centerfield where no birdie is.
Dixie runs like the wind and so does Gus. Yeah !! Gus jumps on the home plate and everybody yells go Dixie go Dixie!!! BooBoo and Kacey are trynna get the ball as it was between them both do lots of sand in between them both.
Dixie makes it around the world !!!
Yay!!! His team cheers then they hear moms whistle. Break time !!!
Every birdie yells about time !! It was getting hot. They all rush the coolers for the ice cold juice boxes and juice cans.

  Hey Raffi,
Well it's a nice sun shiney day for part 2 of kickball.
Kacey was on second base and she walks to second base as every birdie gets in place.
Sugar is joining the outfield team as she wants to be first at bat soon.
Chipper pitches the ball and Cookie Haines kicks it out to left field where Sugar is and the ball happens to land in her wings as she watches the game. Cookie runs to first base but realizes that Sugar caught his ball then shrugs his shoulders and walks back to his team mates.
Yeah Sugar her team yells, 2 outs, one more!!
So now it's BooBoos turn and because she is little Pookie tells everyone to come in closer.
BooBoo just smiles as Chipper pitches the ball and she kicks it over the guys that came in closer. BooBoo is running to first base as fast as her little legs would go!!
The ball is still in the air and lands in Sugars wings again! She is as much surprised as any birdie else as she didnt hear Pookie tell everyone to move in closer.
That's 3 outs!!! Our turn!! Pookie says you can kick first since you caught 2 balls. :)
Pookie eggsplains where she wants to aim the ball and run to first base over there by Chyna and run like the wind girl! Okay says Sugar, I can do this, I can do this. She tells herself.

Laka pitches the ball and Sugar gets tangled legs and falls down. Pookie rushed over to see if she was okay but she was more embarrassed than anything else.
Pookie says no, it's okay your doing good, that's how we all learned too and he smiles at her and hands her a wing. Shall we try this again ? She grabs his wing and says ooh yes!!
Laka gets the nod and pitches the ball and Sugar kicks it way out to right field and she astonished that she could even kick it that far. She stands there watching the ball fly high in the air as everyone else.
Pookie yells Sugar!!! Run to first base !! She snaps out of her daze and says ooh yes and she runs like the wind. She's safe on first!! Yes everyone yells, good going Sugar!!!
Next up is Kiddo and he stretches a little warm up before getting up to the plate.
Laka pitches the ball and he kicks it and its a pop fly into left field where BooBoo is picking flowers as she wasnt paying attention. Everyone yells BooBoo get the ball!!!
BooBoo jumps up as she realizes the game is on!!
Sugar runs to second and Kiddo lands on first base before the ball gets to home plate. Yay !!!! Kiddos team yells. :)
Next up is Gus, a heavy hitter and he too warms up before getting to home plate.
Laka pitches the ball and its a slider!! Gus taps the ball and runs like it was a bunt! Is that even allowed ?? Oh we'll its beach kick ball!
Sugar makes it on third and Kiddo is on second and Gus makes it to first and the bases are full.
Pookie is up next and he too stretches and shows his kicks telling the other team it's going over there.
Laka pitches the ball and its a pop fly!! He lied with his feet says Cori!!
This time BooBoo is paying attention in the outfield and manages

  Hi Raffi
It's hump day again, and one day closer to our special day. We're being very good, so we don't get a lump of coal.

Come visit me, JeTTa - Merry Christmas.

  Hi Raffi
that bad budgie is now flying down to the floor on a nightly basis. i don't like it and mom doesn't either..he is all fluffed up like he wants me or something. tonight when he flew down i jumped up in the air and then twirled right at him. mom was quick and made him fly back to his play stand

  Hi Raffikki
Here are the email addresses. I always send it to support with a copy to Crystal.

sitesupport@i5publishing.com
capilado@i5publishing.com

Hope that helps.
The two day rain got rid of most of the snow but, we still have some and more coming on Wednesday. Glad to be rid of the icy roads. I don't know about you but, I'm so stressed with this Santa Bird watching me all the time. I had a non-stop two hour scream session this morning. Mom couldn't take it and threaten to give me away! I finally calmed down with my peppermint hot chocolate. WHEW, that was a close call. How many more days do I have to be good???
Hugs
Chyna

Come visit me, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.

G-PA HAS HIS GOOD DAYS AND HIS BAD DAYS. HE KEEPS WORKING ON GETTING HIS STRENGTH BACK BY DOING SOME EXERCISES EACH DAY. HE WALKS A LOT ON NICE DAYS.

OH RAFFI, MOM JUST LOVES YOUR PROFILE PICTURE OF YOU AND PUMBAA AND THE TREE. THAT WOULD MAKE THE MOST CUTEST CHRISTMAS CARD EVER.

HAVE A GREAT HUMPDAY

  HI Raffikki!
Awww! That was so sweet of you to leave little foot prints in the flour;) I bet you were just trying to design your own cookie pattern:) Maybe you could leave an imprint on the tops of the cookies;) Yeah, I do take a while to get used to things too. Hope you have more fun baking! Have a good evening;)

hugs,

Sunny
