  HELLO FROM LITTLE LUCY
Hi Raffi,
Mommy had a wonderful time at her retreat, but I sure was happy to see her when she walked through the dooor last night. I saw her car first as she pulled in the driveway and sounded the welcome alarm. What a house full of happy birdies! Now don't get me wrong, our Daddy took good care of us, but we just LOVE our Mommy! She hasn't been away from us for over a year now and she's never been away from Dolly. So we knew she was coming back sometime, but poor Dolly didn't now what was going on. All she wanted to do was snuggle Mommy last night.

Today Daddy has another doctor's appointment. We hope it goes well. Love and Big Hugs from Little Miss Lucy♥

Come visit me, Mr. Finnegan, Daisy - R.I.P. - BOTW 9/17-9/23/07 & Miss Lucy Blue.

  Hi, Raffikki
Mom is gonna post the cupcake pic once she c/p us into that one. They did come out looking so cute. The groom is 6'3". Skinsis is 4'9" and was wearing heels.

Another 70s day yesterday. We'll see if it rains today as forecast.

What kinda decorations are on the front porch? No porch here. The break room at mom's work is decorated with webs, spiders, bats, etc.

Think mom's gonna make an apple crisp since she got apples for it, but it is microwave and broil so won't heat the house up and still smell good.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

helps Cookie clean the pumpkin off his face - but not before he gets a couple of yummy nibbles ! Pumpkin is yummy !

Teiko takes his turn and pretty soon the pumpkin is empty. The fids help pick the seeds and then Scarly helps Lori wash them so they can be roasted.

Meanwhile, the piggies sit with Raffi and Cookie looking on line at all the different ideas for carving . . . they find a parrot and call Lori over !

This is the one we want !

  Wow! Angel Sally floats down and sees Thor!
She is disguised as a floating umbrella.

Raffi says your back !! Yes it's still raining on all the islands and now some flooding has started due to all that rain.

That's why I'm an umbrella as it was still raining when I left.

She shakes off the water and cuddles with Raffi who is nice and warm with his warm coat on.

They snuggle and watch the sunrise together snug as a rug like a bug. :)

Love & hugs to my favorite Raffikins,

Your forever Angel Salkykins

  Hi Raffi
not sure if you remember when i got my foot caught in my baby birds nest which i always liked to sit in and hurt my leg and foot over it. this was about 4 or 5 months ago. mom then made me a new nest out of a coconut shell with rawhide strips to secure it to the top of my cage. well all these months i wouldn't go near it. mom still kept it filled with alfalfa and 24 herb salad and i finally started going over to it to check that out. well today when mom got up she found me sitting in the nest and mom said i looked so darned cute sitting there. dad saw it too and also said how cute i looked. mom doesn't think there is anything with this new nest that i can get caught in but since i am now sitting in it she will take it out of my cage when no one is home to make sure i don't get tangled up in it somehow.

love Boo Boo

  Hi Raffikki
I agree with you. Our parronts paint their walls. So, why can't we decorate our wall with food? I think it looks nice too.
I wish you could send us some of your good weather.
Today was spent just hanging out with my parronts and chewing up new toys. It's still dark, gloomy and cold here. Dad put the patio furniture away when mom was at Parrot Palooza. That's a sign of winter for us!

I so love hanging with you too,at least you take my mind off my painful twisted toes!
It was really freezing out there today,right now its 46 degrees and going down to 36!And its going to be one frigid morning tomorrow morning,winter coat weather for sure!Mom made sure she got enough BBQ to last a good part of the week even though skin sis took some home with her as she usually does!I'm snuggled up close to Mom right now in my favorite blankie and it feels so good to not have to stand on my sore feet,Mom came to get me and found me with my one foot up in the air,my one toe that's permanently stuck straight out.I am so sad to look out the window now and see an empty deck,and my dad is going to clean out the grill and bring that inside the sun room also!How sad that winter is going to come whether we like it or not!

  Hi Raffi
Yes mom had no idea how to cut a pomegrante either but trial and error and she learned but the seeds are very juicy and make a mess if just sliced into them!
It was cold here this morning but by afternoon it got very nice and sunny but so late in the day so too late to enjoy it though its way too cold for me out anyway.
Mom said it was too cold this morning to go out so she did a few things around here instead. Then she decided to get the grands albums caught up to date again like she does every winter. She didn’t have the three grands new school pictures yet to add or the oldest grands birthday picture so she just put what she had in the albums for now. She does have the oldest grands in line to order but will probably wait to order them since there will be the youngest grands birthday soon plus Christmas too so will just wait. I think she is going to start birthday cards soon cause mom likes doing that more. “The bond that links your true family is not of blood, but of respect and joy in each others life like bird channel is for all of us“ Leaving a vote with the note and a big hug as well…Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Hi everybirdie Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. I want to take a moment to thank you all for your continuous daily votes, and awesome blogs. I am trying to use them in my story line so keep them comin.' IF anybirdie still needs a Halloween picture please let me know your choice of costume and I will see what I can do to help you out.
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" Sky screams shrilly and he a Jake back up quickly from the mound of parted grass. "What was that thing???"
"I have no idea but I'm outta here" Jake heads back to rejoin BB and the others, with Sky following on his heels.
Sky shivers, and ducks behind BB. Peaking out to stare towards the grass with dilated eyes. "EEEEEKuck." Sky did not get the words out before birdies began to scream and jump as fast as they could to join Jake and Sky behind BB and BonBon who had come to see what was wrong with her Poppa Sky.
"S-P-I-D-E-R-S!" from every direction big, ucky, black, beady eyed spiders crawl, hang and appear out of every tree, bush and from behind every blade of grass. The girl birds huddle close together as the spiders spin their webs angrily from every solid object. Sky nervously sneaks a peak again from behind BB, closing his eyes. He hates spiders, well no, Sky is afraid of them, and these are BIG, black ucky ones with a quadrillion legs. He shutters, then takes a brave breath of air.
"BOYS, we must protect the ladies" Sky announces not too confidently.
"Yeah, that's right" Cookie says, hanging tightly onto BB's leg once more. " we'll protect you girls"
"Oh really, they're just Spiders" BooBoo says snatching one in her beak and swallowing it whole, "YUMMMMMIE"
The others look at BooBoo and make faces, "how disgusting BooBoo, eating it without BBQing it first" BonBon chirps up. " AHHHHHHH, ones chasing me" she says taking flight. She lands on her Poppa Sky's head. "I'll sit up here and keep watch on them for you" she grins down at her red feathered Poppa.
The spiders continue to emerge, spinning thick webs everywhere. Their black eyes glaring like fiery flames of anger. The birds huddle closely as the Spiders move closer and closer. Suddenly Jesse sees what looks like an opening, and yells, " Follow me" he runs as fast as his talons will carry him between two Mulberry bushes with the others closely upon his heels. The duck low to avoid the heavy webs hanging from the old dark trees, and weave to the left and right around the huge black spiders who appear to block their path of escape. Jesse rushes forward, jumping over an old fallen log, and lands inches from a monstrous Spider, who growls and snaps his feet at the pasting birdies.
"EEEEEEEEEEEE" the scream brings the fleeing birds to a halt, "LITTLE ANGEL, the Spiders grabbed her into their web, HELP HER!!!!!

  Hi Raffikki
Dixie feels so comforted as Raffi wraps his wings around him!He happily climbs up on the sofa beside Raffi and snuggles close to him as Raffi hits the start button for the movies to begin!
We woke up to a dull gray day here this morning and was it ever freezing and it only got up to 55 degrees.Mom had a busy day today trying to get the food ready for the last BBQ we are going to have for the season.Mom cut up lots of onions and fresh tomatoes from Nana's garden,lettuce and got all the condiments out for the hamburgers and hot dogs,then when the grill was ready she put on a steak,turkey breasts thinly sliced,hamburgers,hot dogs and a mixed veggie platter that she grilled.It was freezing out 50 degrees and cloudy with no sun.Both skin sibs came over and as Mom was grilling they were taking some of skin sis's things out of the cellar and sun room to take back to a storage unit they got.Skin sis still has her big game table and her desk in the sun room she has to come back for and all her things in the spare room which is Mom's work out area to get rid of.After they got through eating outside they decided to have dessert inside which was Pepperidge Farms gold cake with chocolate frosting.We all had to stay inside our warm room while they were outside.And we couldn't join them for dessert because of the chocolate!Then Mom got all her houseplants inside and as she was doing that dad got the deck furniture into the sun room for the winter. Mom got the deck cage back out into the sun room for the winter also.How sad to see an empty deck now!Tomorrow is going to be a freezing winter morning with temperatures only at 36 and our lows for tonight will be 38 so they say so far.
Once my Mom was IM'ng my skin sis and it was so messed up skin sis typed back and wanted to know what language that was in!LOL!
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 loving buddy,Love,Dixie

It is very nice here today. They were calling for 77, but I don't think it got quite that warm. Our thermometer says 72, and it's 1PM now. I did get out for my sunbath though, and it was very nice in the sunshine. Got two nutriberries as well, which is always good.

And so now I sit on Mom's knee dictating my blogs. She has the door shut, since Dad is home. And besides I have a made a break from my room twice today for the bathroom. I love hanging out on top of the medicine cabinets in there. And besides it annoys Mom, which is always fun.

We had mac and cheese for lunch today. Mom added some Cajun spice, cottage cheese (for protein) and a bit of Romano cheese to kick it up a notch. It must have worked, because she really liked it and I ate like a little pig. Good thing she gets to eat meat starting tomorrow, because this morning when she woke me up and I was doing my morning stretch, she referred to my legs as drumsticks! Yikes!

The milonga announcement is on the calendar page, 190654. It was up yesterday, and the contest will be really short, since the milonga is next Saturday.
The opera gala last night was wonderful, too bad it couldn't have lasted longer. Mom did hear lots of arias, duets, and ensembles that she loves, and they did a bit of operetta as well.
Mom's tour with college students turned out to be fun yesterday, and they wanted Dinosaur hall, which she loves. Today mom has 2 tours at the museum with West Virginia University students. Do you think she's trying to avoid the football game? I sure do. She got very upset with the team's loss last week, even though she didn't see the game.
I hope you are having a good day, lots of sun and warmer temps than we have here. Get lots of scritchies and cuddles today. Hugs, Willie

ready to work on their pumpkin ! They run to the kitchen for some of poppa Jim's famous breakfast burritos and then even help with the clean up !

Lori spreads some newspaper on the table and starts to cut the top off. She shows them the inside and explains to them how to dig it out and separate the seeds for roasting.

Raffi gets the first turn . . . he climbs up and takes a beakful and tosses it onto the newspaper. Then it's Scarly's turn. He leans in to grab a beakful and promptly tumbles into the pumpkin ! As Lori rescues him the other three giggle :)

  Hi, Raffikki
Thanks for liking the wedding pic. Mom wanted to c/p us into the pic but there wasn't enough room on the bottom so settled for a caption instead. Even with heels on skinsis is so small next to her groom.

Very annoying to have the internet issues. It also took out the landline but didn't realize it right away. Seems to be working fine.

Great weather here too. Staying in the 70s, slightly breezy and sunny. No rain, but more is in the forecast for Mon.

Wonderful to bake in the cooler weather so warm up the house without turning the heat on. Smells so good too.

  Hi Raffi
it is a dark and dreary night…

so far they re doing a good job tracking the ebola virus and containing it. the problem with viruses are that they like to mutate. the 2 major hospitals in pittsburgh are saying since they are research hospitals they are competing with each other and asking that the ebola patients be sent to them for treatment. mom lives 6 miles from one of the hospitals. all zombie movies always start out with these words. DO NOT PANIC. EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL then the mayhem starts.

well tonight when mom went to use the computer she couldn't get on the internet. she checked and the computer said she was on the internet but she couldn't do anything other than read her email. she finally figured out that even though she was connected to the internet her search engine on Safari had disappeared. mom sat there for over an hour trying to figure out where it went. finally mom turned the computer off and then on again. still no good. then mom called comcast and told them to reset her computer by sending a signal. still no search engine. mom turned off the computer and went to the grocery store. when she came home she turned the computer back on and the search engine was back. mom doesn't know what happened but glad it is back.

Makana smiles up at him. I'm so glad you came to share it with me. Boy I've never danced so much! And being around so many birds in one place! WOW! Then today I went to mom while she was holding Ipo. She put Ipo on her cage and held and petted me until I was almost asleep. I liked that a lot. Never thought I'd like being held and cuddled but I've changed my mind.
It was a wonderful day today. We all got our out of cage time with mom and she fixed the screen so cats can't come in if the door is open.

Some times mom will get a pomegrante and it actually has marks on the outside you can go by to cut from top to end but the last ones she got doesnt have the lines. Just cut the skin and dont go deep or you hit the seeds and juice flies LOL.
This morning mom and her cousin met up at a church that was having a craft show. I told mom she has enough crafts to get done here but she said she had gallon plastic jugs my water comes in for some lady there. The lady makes skeletons for Halloween out of them so mom said she will save them for her. I suspect mom looked at all the crafts there too though. Oh well she didn’t stay long and was back home the rest of the day with me so that was good. “The bond that links your true family is not of blood, but of respect and joy in each others life like bird channel is for all of us“ Leaving a vote with the note and a big hug as well…Gus (RIP Chi chi)

My Mom gave me a break from my meds today as I was in such pain it hurt to be touched,everything hurt my toes,legs,wings so Mom let me have the day off from having to deal with all those meds all day long,she'll start them up again tomorrow morning.Right now Mom is snuggling with me.I'm wrapped up under my blankie and she's got the heat box on and it feels good blowing the warm air towards me.I think Mom will keep me with her for the whole night so I can have a break from having to stand on my feet and give my toes a rest!
My Mom seems to be doing alot of that lately falling asleep while trying to finish my blogs and my frothers too!Then she can't type fast enough and the faster she types the worse it looks,the spelling is just so awful!One can't even figure out what its supposed to say!LOL!

  October BOTM POST number twelve
Hello friends, Jesse here with our Saturday BOTM Adventure Post. As we turned for a final look at BC Lake, the water is once more calm, glass-like and no sign of the past violent storm remains. Even the row-boats have disappeared. "WHAT! The row-boats, their gone!" Kacey exclaims loudly as she stares in disbelief. For indeed the boats had vanished into thin air.
BB looks at Sky and Jesse, then back at the Lake, "I hope we can find the BC Castle. It is funny that it has disappeared on us. I know it is a magical place but why would it vanish on the birds who love it sooooo much???" Then looking down towards the ground she says with a sigh, "Can somebirde please remove Cookie from around my legs? Its hard to waddle this way."
" SURE HOPE WE FIND OUR WAY BACK TO THE CASTLE THEN FIND OUR FRIENDS. THIS IS ONE SCAREY TRIP.' Sweetpepper tells Kiddo with worry in her voice. Kiddo takes her wing in his, and holds her tightly. "We'll get out of here, don't you worry Sweetpepper."
Spot comes to where Sky, BB and Jesse are standing, trying to decide what to do next. Jake walks towards the group, but suddenly stops dead in his tracks. "What was that?" he asks pointing to where he had thought he saw something peaking out of the grass at him. Seeing nothing he joins the others.
Bonbon looks and sees that her picture with Parker is in the photo album Hesse has on his gallery. turning to spot and Parker she says, "Jesse put me and Parker in the profile!Hehee!!! I can't wait to show Snowflake........ Oh no! I forgot that she disappeared!" BonBon starts to cry loudly because she misses her friend!
Spot hugs her and says, "don't worry BonBon. We'll find her and all the others too!"(He sounds more confidant than he feels, but he won't let BonBon see that!)
"Hey, Panther! I have an idea! We're tiels, and fly well! let's go up as high as we can and look for them!"
"Good idea, Spot," says Panther.
Jesse says, "you guys be careful! And keep up in sight range, OK?"
"OK, let's go Panther!" Spot lifts into the air
They fly straight up and fly in a big circle looking for their friends. Finally, they land and report to Jesse. "We didn't see them, we also didn't see the castle in any direction! I think we're lost!"
Worry lines form on Jesse's handsome face again, and he says, "it must be a trick of some kind by the BC ghosts! The Castle has to be there. It's always easy to find from the Lake."
Jake and Sky stand close, talking. "I am certain I saw tiny black eyes staring at me from over there, then they disappeared." Sky looks in the direction Jake indicated. Seeing nothing he frowns. " We better go check it out, just to be sure." The two boys inch closer to where the eyes had been. Parting the grass carefully using a stick Sky found on the ground they lean over for a better looks and suddenly the air is split in two by their terrified screams........

  Hi Raffikki
Well the day started off pretty gloomy here I thought it was going to be another grey day.Finally in the afternoon the sun came out even though it's a tad chilly it turned out to be a nice day.
My mom has spent the day cleaning and doing laundry some way to spend a day off. At least she's home with me.Hope your weekend is off to a good start. Have a good evening.

Come visit me, Hulk Vote Jesse(227428) BOTM.

  Hi Raffi
I got your entry on the milonga page, and you are listed in the scary/action category. I need to go back and note that your pic is in your gallery, unless you want to make it your profile.

I am having a pretty nice day. It being Saturday, Mom and Dad went grocery shopping. However Mom spent an hour reading with me first (and of course got up early to give me breakfast). Now I am once again well supplied with sugar snap peas and bananas. Mom was very frustrated in the store, because they were giving out lots of samples without having a single one she can eat yet. Monday can't get here soon enough for her.

However Mom forgot to eat lunch, so we still need to do that. She has gotten really weird about eating since the surgery. You would think she would be hungry all the time, but she isn't. No wonder she hasn't gained back any of the weight, even with her one solid meal of rice and veggies (the one she hasn't eaten yet today).

I did get a nice sunbath, and we both enjoyed the mid 70s temps. The sun was out today, so there was actual sunshine. I know I still get the healthy rays when it is cloudy, but it just feels nicer when the sun is shining.

And so as I dictate from my mom's knee, I bid you all a wonderful weekend!

  Hello Raffikki~
I hope you are having a great day! I'm having a nice day so far. It's nearly apple snack time so I'm looking forward to that.
Mom and I are watching House Hunter International. A lot of these people whine way too much but we are watching it to see what houses are like in other countries. It's interesting and the real estate agent in Costa Rica has Ekkies!! It's exciting to see the South American shows and look out for birds!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's perfect!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  It's getting late
and all mama Erin hears from the tree house is THE GREAT PUMPKIN dvd playing. Lori comes to see what everybirdie is doing and is amazed at the orange and black garland and all the paper bats and ghosts fluttering from the ceiling !

She tells the boys and piggies it's almost perch time and that she thinks the place needs a jack-o-lantern, so tomorrow she'll help them carve one !

They make sure roasting the seeds are included !

  Hi Raffikki
Mom and dad got up really early this morning to take me to the vet,I snuggled deep into my blanket which was wrapped around Mom's neck and then she put her coat on over that and did that feel ever so good on my sore toes!We got there a few minutes after nine and there were no cars in the parking lot so my dad got out of the car and walked up to the door and found that it was open and came back to Mom and he told her they parked their cars over by the pizza place on the other side!When Mom went inside with me they thought I was still out in the car,the vet tech tried to get me out from Mom's coat and my blanket,boy I was holding on really tight,the vet tech took me into the back room and Mom had to wait in the waiting room while they checked my eye and soon the vet tech came back out with me and told Mom my eye was doing really well and that I am supposed to finish off that bottle of antibiotics and the rest of the eye drops,YUCK!I thought that I would be all done with those!
It was a bright sunny morning here and 70 degrees but now its barely 1:00 in the afternoon and the sky is all cloudy,we are supposed to get more rain here tonight sometime and then we will be having rain for a good part of next week also!
My Mom sure understands all about trying to finish up our blogs and nodding off at the same time!We sure do hope that your sweet Momma got a good nights sleep!My Mom so knows what she feels like being so tired like that!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses my sweet BBF and awesome buddy!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

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

  Hi Raffi
I hope you are entering the milonga contest. That Thor costume is awesome.
Today mom has a tour at the museum at 2, and the group has grown. She is not sure how many will be on the tour, because up until yesterday her boss at the museum was still asking for more docents.
Tonight it is opening night at the opera, and they're doing something different. This year, they are doing a gala affair, with excerpts from various operas, choruses and whole scenes. Mom thinks it's because it will be cheaper than putting on an opera. That means the season is cut to 4 performances and tonight's gala, instead of the 5 they normally do. Aunt Gin and mom are going together, so they will be eating at Pusadee's Garden, a great Thai restaurant on the way to the theater.
I guess that means we'll be in lockdown most of the day. I hope you have better luck, and can get lots of cuddles and love today. Hugs, Willie

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Congrats to Kaji!, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hi, Raffikki
So, on Thurs the internet was off. Mom called and got it reset. Just when she was gonna turn off the puter she noticed that the wifi symbol was saying no access. She checked and it was off again! So, she called again and it wouldn't reset so got appointment to have it checked. The tech arrived after mom got home from work but dad dealt with him to address his concerns. The modem is fairly new but the wires are old and got replaced.

Still no rain. Maybe today. We'll see. In the meantime temps here are also 70s.

Mom loves to bake and in the fall/winter. Mostly breads or muffins but sometimes casseroles.

Baby got shots yesterday. One in each leg, yikes! Was a tad more fussy than normal but understandable.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.
