  Hi, Raffikki
Now that temps have gotten warm/hot easy to drink plenty of water. Mom keeps eggstra bottles in a cooler in her car just in case since buying a single bottle often costs too much (not that would stop one if really need it).

Too bad BC stopped Kiddo and others from attending the Milonga. Hopefully it works better next week. We might not be available though since parronts have a family dinner to attend but we'll certainly check if possible and certainly next day.

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

  Hi Raffikki
I think both Nana and I are in such pain.Nana was so busy all morning trying to take care of our cousins and get her chores done.Mom keeps worrying about her being on her legs too much but she insists that she just can't sit down and do nothing!And sitting for long periods also hurts as much as being on her feet.Hopefully Nana will call the dr soon and get the help she so needs!
This morning was a bright beautiful sunny morning with the highs for the day of 74 the lows of 56 and its 72 right now,Mom's favorite temperature.Mom got us all up and then cleaned our cages,swept our room and then gave us our bean mix.Candida gave Mom a lot more work to do as she tore her cage all apart.Then Mom got dad's coffee going and his breakfast of raisin toast ready.Dad went out to clean the birdbath out and feed the wild birds.This morning a huge CawCaw came to the bird bath and took a bath,it was so funny to see such a big bird in a bird bath!He was splashing away and enjoying himself sitting and squatting down to get the water all over his belly area!Mom is doing the chores that never got done yesterday today and trying to get more things to throw out.They will be going out later on in the afternoon and hopefully will be back in time for the Milonga.Other than it being another nice boring day around here we might get to go outside and enjoy some sunshine when Mom takes a break.Boring days are our favorites as it means Mom will be home with us all day!
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
I've learned to open my food door for mom when she is coming with breakfast or dinner. I push the door open, then stand and wait for her to deliver the food. I'm so clever! This morning instead of grabbing the almond sliver as usual, I grabbed the fresh raspberry, which really surprised mom.
Gene came to the pool for awhile yesterday, and when mom asked him if he was coming again today, he said maybe Wednesday. He truly didn't know what day it was! Of course, traveling and getting settled in again is difficult, but he's one of the smartest people mom knows, so she was surprised at his answer.
Today we are going to have mom for nearly all day, with only her pool time away from us. If we could go there, we would, too! Tonight is the milonga, though, so we have to stay here to practice our dance steps for the big night.
I hope you are having a good day today, with lots of sunny weather, cuddles, and scritches coming your way. See you at the milonga, I hope! Hugs, Willie

We will be having another day in the 90's with high humidity, it is almost like swimming when you are outside! We have a lot to do to get MsLaLo ready for travel, with all her toys and favorite boxes, but dad will make it work as hard as it will be for him! We wish every birdie a successful prom night, and if I know Kiddo and Sweetpepper, it will be another great dance party! Have a wonderful Saturday dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your happy home see ya all tomorrow....

  Hi, Raffikki
Our dad's brothers both moved outta the area. Mom's sis lives a few miles away in neighboring city. Other sibs live with parronts for different reasons. Mom likes the area since it is where she grew up and knows where everything is. Maybe upon retiring will move or when her parronts are gone. Will depend on weather as she doesn't want to live where too hot or snows.

Think drinking the water a bit all day long is good as then stay hydrated continuously. Even if not going far should always have some water.

  Hi Raffikki
This morning was a bright sunny cool morning that turned into a nice hot day for us!The highs for the day are 74 the lows of 61 and right now its 77 at 5:00pm.Mom got dad off to work and then she finished loading the car with the trash and the rest of the recyclables.Then she got us up and cleaned our cages,swept the floor and gave us our breakfast.Then she harnessed Dixie and Candida and got them in their car seat and they took off to Nana's.When we got there Mom got us in our cages and then she did the ear candles in Nana's ears but couldn't get any wax out.Then Mom tried getting Nana's new phone she got the other day set up and couldn't get it anywhere close to where she sits because there was no jack for it to go into where her other phone is now,Mom tried it in the answering machine but it was still too far for Nana to get it without having to walk too far.Then Nana made them some tea and they had some orange cranberry bread and then Mom loaded Nana's trash and recyclables in Mom's car and they took off for the dump.Mom got rid of all the recyclables and then went to the trash tunnel and got rid of the trash over the wall there.From there they went to Walgreen's where both Mom and Nana got some Stouffer's chicken breast frozen meals for .99 cents and Mom got some southwestern soup for .97cents. Nana got some of the frozen chicken breast and some dish soap and a frozen dinner for herself also.From there they went to Marshall's so Nana could look for pants that fit her and she tried on 5 pairs of pants from size 0 to size 2 and they were all way too big for her.The size 0 fit nicely but the legs were waaaay too long.Nana was tired after that and they went back to Nana's house where they had some lunch of tuna and salad and toast and bruschetta.They had some coffee and a mini eclair for dessert.Nana gave all us fids a fresh fruit bowl and did we love that!By the time they were finished it was close to 4:00pm and Mom got us all ready to go back home,we got harnessed up again and tethered in our car seat and Mom left to go home.Dad called Mom the minute she walked in the door to tell her he was giving skin bro a ride to his car and to get his check cashed.Hopefully his car will be ready today.

  Hi Raffi
Thanks, mom did have a nice outing, although she only ordered a Reuben. Peppy says thanks for the vote, too.
Thanks to Kaji's wonderful mom, we got that pic in a jpg format so mom put it on all our pages for a few days. Aunt DJ is a genius! The skull mom's holding is archaeopteryx, and she loves showing it, as it's the first known bird.
Today mom cleaned the recovery room, which has a variety of turtles, a snake, and some ducks. The hybrid domestic duck she checked in last week is in the center part of the building, but mom couldn't see if she was still on eggs or not. The ducks in the recovery room were all doing quite nicely, and the turtle with the nail polish is getting cleaner and cleaner, YAY! There is a little painted turtle in there too. When mom took its food out she laughed, because whoever fed them yesterday must have thought this turtle was a giant. There was more food in the cage than turtle. He's a pretty active little one, too, but not using a back leg, so mom is hoping for the best for him.
The snake is very cool! It's a water snake, so it's in an aquarium with a lid.
It was reasonably sunny, so mom went to the pool after the center. Her friend Gene is in from Germany, so he met her there and stayed to swim for an hour or so.
Now mom is ours for the rest of the evening! She will clean our cages, but it's fun time for the birdies now.
I hope you are having a great day today, getting lots of summery weather, cuddles and scritches all for you. Hugs, Willie

  Hello Raffi~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! McKenzie has been a bit crazy this morning. She wants to play but can't decide what to play with. She did the tennis ball for a while and then her new boo boo dog and now it's her rope. I have a feeling she wants everyday to be her birthday! Hey! Who doesn't? Mom got her a Subway kid's turkey and cheese sandwich and she loved it. Mom got veggies on the 9 grain bread and I shared that with her. It was good but I still say pizza would be better!
Mom went back to work last night and had plenty to do. She knew nothing would be done and it wasn't. Always like that but she'll have it all cleaned up tonight. Mom's first Back to School ad is on Sunday! Yeah I know! The kids haven't even been out a week yet!! It's all in the stationery department since the big Back to School area is not set up yet. They are going to set it up in a week or so and then have to move it because moms store is going through a remodel. 3 months of remodel! This will be moms 3rd remodel and they are not fun at all. The store will look very nice when it's done but they have to get through it first!
Dad is in Utah taking his 34 hour break. He had to have the windshield replaced in the truck because it was leaking!! Never heard of a leaking windshield before. At least he has insurance for it so he didn't have to pay for it.
Yep. Mandy was a rescue also. The same age as McKenzie, about 6 months old. I never cared for anything at Burger King so that is why I am praying if there are anymore out there that need to find mom, they will be near pizza! Subway was okay.
Enjoy the day and I do hope it is just perfect!

  Hi, Raffikki
Thanks for the hatchday wishes. Got some of our beloved millet. Just love that stuff.

The parronts didn't plan to live so close to their respective parronts but an opportunity arose to buy a house down the street. This was wayyyy before the prices skyrocketed as certainly wouldn't be able to buy it at today's prices.

Good to drink plenty of water all day long to keep hydrated. Know your mom would never want to repeat having any kidney stone troubles. Our mom's never had that but heard a few stories.

the storms missed us last night and were mostly south of the city. we just got lots of rain. tonight while mom was on the computer she saw a bright flash and heard a loud rumble. she went outside to investigate and a branch had fallen on our power line but it had bounced off and then fallen to the ground so we didn't have any problems. apparently the neighbors across the street are having electrical problems due to our tree falling last week because the electric company was here tonight restringing cables but not to our house.

I came to your page to leave a note for you and I was reading a blog you sent me on your page also and you sent me the other blog you couldn't find!LOL!At first my Mom thought she was going crazy seeing the blog you sent on my page and then the one you left on your page for me to read!LOL!That is way too hot 95 degrees with that high heat index of 101,you have to be really sweating and soggy there today!
This morning was a bright sunny cool morning with the highs for the day of 75 the lows of 58 and right now its 76.Mom got dad off to work and then wrote out some bills and got that in the mail box,then Mom collected the recyclables and loaded them in her car and collected most of the trash and got that in the garage to be loaded in her car in the morning.Then she got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and then we got our bean mix.Mom is going to work on more chores today and then we are hoping to get outside and enjoy some sun and a shower later on.We are going to have a wonderful boring day here!Mom is so happy to be home and is hoping that no one is going to call and ask her to do something that will take her away from us!
UPDATE:We all got to go outside and enjoy some sunshine around 3:30pm.It was really hot and Mom gave us showers to cool us off.Then skin bro called Mom as he was driving his car to the repair shop,he had no brakes and Mom was such a wreck hoping he would get there in one piece.He did make it to the shop,his brakes went all the way to the floor and the emergency brake did nothing to stop the car.Now Mom is trying with Dad to get him to work tomorrow.Mom suggested he have our dad pick him up at the repair shop and he'd take him home here with us which would make it easier for my dad to get him to work and get himself to work on time but he got his bicycle from Nana's and rode that from Mashpee all the way to Falmouth to his apartment.Now Mom is waiting for him to see if a co worker from work will pick him up instead as he made arrangements with him.It can never be a stress free day around here!We did get to join Mom and dad for dinner out on the deck tonight and we each got a nice red pepper and some grated carrots to eat!
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,
Hi everyone,

Well, last night I was a very baaaad baaaad birdie! Mom says I have a death wish or something like that. I wonder what she means by that?
Anyways when mom and dad were outside on the porch talking she kept checking in to see if I was still on my tree and not Laka’s as we are on opposite sides of the living room. She must have had the notion that I was gonna stay on my side of the room, but nooooooo Mr. Sneaky being me, I had to fly to that big tree! Yes I flew to Laka’s tree and the good thing about it is that she was playing in her cage eating some seed wreath thing on the opposite side that I was.

Mom says that Laka is being a good girl, but I’m just being a boyeee! I’m a big bird in a little birds body is all. What is a bird to do?? I ask you all now……..
Maybe mom will get the hint that I want a big tree like my fister Laka. I bet mom will say that it’s too big for me and the one I have is the right size for this little bird body. I say give me a biiiiig tree!!!! I’m a big boyee, I can handle it, I know I can!!

Some birdie please tell my mom to get me a bigger tree!!!! I’m getting frustrated with this baby tree here!

Here’s a vote for you.

Hugs,

  Hi ya Raffi~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Mom heads back to work tonight! Bummer! We had a nice time and mom says we will do it again. She is going to have a real mess when she gets there tonight but she knew that!!
Today is McKenzie's birthday. She's a year old already! This is the day dad picked for her birthday. The first vet figured she was about 6 months old when dad found her. Yesterday was a year since we lost Mandy so we didn't want to use that date so dad picked the 23rd.
She is going to get Subway for lunch since dad found her near the Subway at a truck stop in New Mexico. Mandy always got Burger King since she was found in the trash at a Burger King. If they ever find another dog I sure hope it is at a pizza place!hehehehehehe Subway is okay but pizza would be better!
I hope your day is spectacular!!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Her right leg is swollen, although the redness has faded. Peppy says thanks for the vote.
Mom's daughter is getting released from the hospital today, so mom is ready to go pick her up. We had rain and thunder boomers overnight, and it's still gray and cloudy looking. It's supposed to clear up by noon, but mom will get to the pool late, as she has to make sure her daughter is settled in at her home and has all the meds she needs. She should be leaving the hospital with at least one prescription for antibiotics.
Otherwise, today is the day mom and her sis go to dinner, so if she doesn't make the pool, she'll still go out tonight for awhile.
Update: Mom picked up her daughter and they dropped off a scrip for antibiotics. Also, it's stopped raining, but it will be muddy at the pool, so we think it's probably not going to be a good day to go.
I hope you are having an awesome day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

We had heavy rains with thunder and lighting most of the day and night! No tornadoes touched down real close to us, thankfully, but many of our outlying areas were not so lucky! Dad's nurse numbers were really good surprisingly, but she was disappointed with the healing progress on dad's left foot, she is so hard to please sometimes!

  Hi, Raffikki
Yup, parronts live in area they grew up in and skinsis went to the same elementary school (rebuilt), middle school and high school they attended. She was able to visit with her grandparronts weekly when younger since each one would have her after school one day a week when parronts were working.

Our mom melts quickly too. Does help to wear the lighter and loose clothing but a fan sounds like a great idea too. Keeping water in the car is also a must.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Raffi
did you hear that someone illegally went into the monarch butterfly sanctuary in Mexico and illegally logged about half of the forest. the trees on the perimeter protected the inner trees from wind and storm damage. the monarch butterfly population has gone down by 90 percent already. then this spring when the new monarchs were getting ready for their big migration a big storm hit and killed 40 percent of the monarchs there because there weren't enough trees left to protect them.

we are getting hurricane warnings tonight. every time mom sits down to blog dad calls her for something. last night someone hacked into his email and dad was all upset. mom told him to change his email. dad never listens to mom. now someone is sending out phishing emails in dads name using his email. still getting estimates for tree removal. mom is sad that all the years of her hard work and plantings will be destroyed by the guys when they remove the tree.

love Boo Boo

  Hi Raffikki
Please forgive us for our c/p as Mom got home really late and she's had a really long day and just can't keep awake and wants to get all our notes done before she crashes.We apologize for Mom's nodding off and fading away from us.
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 76 the lows of 61 and right now at 7:30pm its 73.Mom got dad off to work and then she got some things put away and then came in and cleaned our cages,swept our room and gave us our bean mix.Then she got us in our harnesses and got us in our car seat in the car.When Mom got to Nana's she got us settled in our cages in Nana 's sun room and then Mom and Nana got into Mom's car and they went over the Bridge to Wareham so Nana could find what she was looking for.They went to the pet store first and the girl there gave Nana a sampling of pellets for our cousins to try(they're so picky and won't eat any pellets).From there they went to JC Penneys to look at curtains for Nana.They had lots of curtains but Nana still didn't find anything she was interested in.They looked around but didn't find anything and then left.They went over to Target and both Mom and Nana got several items and then from there they went back to Nana's where they met skin sis and they got into her car after Nana gave all of us fids a fruit bowl for our snack before they left to go to Hyannis.When they got to Hyannis they went to Olive Garden to eat as it was 3:00pm and they got the lunch special.From there they went to Shaws/Star Market and they didn't find what they wanted there either so they left and went back to Mashpee to Stop&Shop where both Mom and Nana bought some things.By the time they got back to Nana's it was 6:00pm and both Nana and Mom were so tired,Nana was in so much pain she was ready to cry.Mom is so praying that she'll get an appointment with the dr. so she can get some help for the intense pain.Mom got us all harnessed and put back in our car seat and left to go home around 6:15pm and the traffic was so heavy Mom didn't get home til after 7:00pm.Mom got us all settled in our cages while dad unpacked Mom's car and she put all the groceries away,got dad's dinner and then got dad's lunch ready for tomorrow.Mom is now ready to sit with us and help us get our notes done.We are looking forward to a quiet day tomorrow and Mom is so looking forward to not getting into the car at all!
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
Thanks for the prayers, and Peppy thanks you for the vote, too.
Mom got the pic of her with the skull at the museum. It came via email today, but it's a pdf file and mom doesn't know how to convert it to jpg to put it in my gallery for a day or 2. We will welcome all suggestions.
This morning mom got her mani/pedi. She had the owner of the salon, so she was out of there in under 2 hours. Wasn't that great? She was happy to have them done finally. After she got home, she went to the pool for the afternoon. It was kind of gray and cloudy looking, but hot. She predicted that the sun would come out when she was ready to leave, and it did, of course.
Anyway now we have mom for the rest of the day, which is just fine with us! Mom's daughter is still in the hospital, so we ask for prayers for her healing. The swelling has gone up, but the redness has faded a bit.
I hope you are having a great day today, getting lots of great weather, as well as cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Raffikki
Heat is definitely tolerable without humidity or if there is any kinda breeze that isn't warm. Just have to keep hydrated, wear light colors and looser fitting clothing. Those all help, oh, and staying outta the full sun. Not sure how those who have outside jobs manage unless have lots of breaks. Imagine if temps are triple digits then dropping into the 80s might actually feel nice.

A few years back the parronts heard that their HS was having an anniversary so they went to that and saw bunch of old classmates then as well. Many have moved away since dad has kinda kept in touch with many who still live in the general vicinity.

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

  squeals of joy
come from the tube dragging along behind the boat ! Oinks come from on board as Pumbaa and Petunia wait for their turn out ! Bunnies sleep peacefully at mama Erin's feet . . .

Soon the boat slows and the fids all climb back on board - Raffi squawks "I thought I heard the picnic basket opening !"

Oh yes, that is my official flowerbird photo. The wedding colors are aqua and gold.
This is my last home sleep. Yes, Wednesday at 3pm I will be at vet-camp. Mom told them that I will have a big bag of stuff coming with me. I will miss all of you.

I will be offline on Wednesday at 6pm EDT.
Hugs
Chyna

  Hi Raffikki
Oh don't you just love to be outside on the porch and get to watch all the action that goes by!Oh it doesn't matter how hot and humid it is as long as you can enjoy the night air and look at the stars in the sky!
This morning was a very dark,dismal,dreary and thunder and lightening morning.It started at around 5:00am all the rain and thunder and the bright lightening.Mom got dad off to work at 6:30am and then she got more things put away from yesterday and then she got our bean mix ready in our bowls and then got us all up.Its still raining out there and dark and its quite cold.The highs for the day will be 75 with the lows of 63 and its 66 right now and its quite windy.The rain is supposed to stop around noon time or so but it just may be too wet for us to even go outside by later on in the afternoon.It should be an uneventful day here for us and Mom is so hoping that there isn't going to be another crisis from someone that needs her to run out again.She's got to clean the bathrooms that never got done yesterday and work on cleaning out more stuff to take to the donation centers and trash. Mom also made some brownies and white chocolate macadamia cookies.It looks like the sun is coming out now and we just might be able to go out on the deck for some sun as soon as Mom gets done with her chores now.Other than that its hopefully going to be a nice quiet day here with Mom staying home with us while she works on chores.
UPDATE:We all got to get outside late this afternoon and it was so hot the deck thermometer said it was over 101 degrees.Mom kept spraying us to keep us cool as she herself was sweating like crazy.We can't complain because we had such a long cold winter and we'll take any hot sun we can get!The hummingbird even came around as did the female oriole.We had so much fun watching all the wild birds coming and going in our yard!We even got to dine out on the deck with our parronts,Mom gave us some carrots and red peppers which we loved!Mom dremmeled Dixie's beak and he wasn't very happy about that at all.It took awhile because Mom didn't want him to go into seizure mode.He got lots of breaks in between and a special treat after he was done..He's so much happier now as he can almost eat an animal cracker without it being crushed all the way!My legs are all swelled today and Mom tried rubbing them to alleviate the pain,I got a nice full body rubbing today while I sat in my Mom's lap on the deck for dinner.It really felt so good,Mom got a phone call and I was put back in my deck cage.That was a bummer!
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
