I acquired Gabbie from my son's classmates parents who couldn't keep her anymore and I said that I would find a home for her and they said they only wanted me to keep her. That was fifteen years ago. At that time I had already been owned by a green cheek conure and a sun conure. My husband said yes and Gabbie was ours!.

GabGab,Gabriell- e

22 years old   F

Dusky-Headed Conure

peanuts in shell, animal crackers, grapes,pomagran- ites,pasta,anyt- hing that she can get.

she loves to hang out on her playgym in the bird room and in her sleeping box in the t.v. room and under mom's shirt.

She does not like her brother sun conure Kallie,because he always tries to attack her for no reason at all. And she can't stand getting her beak dremmeled down.

I get love all day long and I get to go out on the warm summer days in our stroller, I get homecooked meals warm in the winter and a cage to myself and playgym to stay out on all day long when mom is home. I love to snuggle under her shirt or clothes which I just love.

She gets up early in the a.m. and starts yelling "hello, Hello" and she won't poop in the cage at all..

If you yell hello loud enough you will get what you want..

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
It was a crazy morning around here! Mom got up early to take Ian to work and when she came back she took McKenzie on another walk. We have a wetland that runs the length of the complex. It has a fence along it but it is just a plank fence and there are places where there are big gaps under it. McKenzie stuck her head under a gap and pulled out a Mole! Mom just about freaked out! We have been working on "drop" with McKenzie so when mom yell she actually dropped it! She knew she had done something bad because she flattened out on the sidewalk and look at mom!
Mom took her over to the car and locked her in. She grabbed the towel that she keeps in the car and ran back to the poor little Mole. He was flailing all over the place and trying to crawl into the grass. Mom picked him up in the towel and checked him out. He was okay! He was still flailing and growling at mom!hehehehehe
Mom crawled over to the fence and found his hole and set him down next to it. He dug for a bit and then went down his hole! Mom really thought that McKenzie had killed it! Thank goodness he was just fine because mom would have felt just awful if it had died.
Obviously McKenzie is no longer allowed near the fence. Mom already told Jennifer and Dad and will tell Ian when he gets home from work. Dad thought it was funny but mom has been very careful to make sure McKenzie does not show any aggression at all. I'm sure she was just curious and didn't know what it was but mom wants her to learn not to touch anything unless mom says it's okay!
Dad ended up just staying overnight at the truck stop. He has a load of books going to Indiana. He still has hours left so he will grab his 34 hour break on the way. It doesn't deliver until Monday so he has plenty of time.
We got a the rest of the laundry done this morning so that is all caught up. Mom will go pick Ian up in a little while and then get some rest before going to pick Jennifer up! Back to work for her tonight!
Mikey and Kacey are having a luncheon for us all today so please make sure all the Angel Birds come by!! I'll be doing the story soon also so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you and spend some time with you!
Remember that I love you now and always my friend!

  in the morning and wouldn't eat her food! Mom puts a few spoonfuls in the dry food and McKenzie eats it right up! Silly dog! She is 10 months old now so she only has to eat the puppy food for 2 more months. Mom is going to stick with the Iams or Science Diet when she starts eating adult dog food. It seems to be good for her and she likes it also.
It's time for our story so come perch with me! I can't wait to see you sweetie!! I love having our evenings together and sharing a story with you!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
We got some of the chores done today since we didn't get much done yesterday. Mom still has towels to wash tomorrow. I thought it was pretty boring but mom put Minions on for me while she was in the kitchen. Those little yellow guys make me laugh!
It sounds like the driving your mom has to do is a lot worse than what my mom has to do! Mom doesn't go down into the town much since the traffic is awful. If she needs to go somewhere down there she tries to plan it for an early time.
Today she went to the library while Ian and Jennifer went to have lunch at the Pho soup restaurant. Mom wasn't hungry so she told them to go and have a nice lunch while she went to the library. When they were finished with lunch mom took Jennifer to work. She is still feeling icky but she is better. She loves that Pho soup and it made her feel better. Mom and Ian went down to the bank after they took Jennifer to work and then came home. Mom was here all afternoon and I was happy about that. When she picked Jennifer up she went over to get gas in the car and then stopped to get Ian and Jennifer sandwiches for dinner.
McKenzie was a bit rowdy this afternoon so mom sat and played with her for a while. She is all worn out now and ready for bed!
When mom was sweeping up the wood around my play cage she saw some of McKenzie's toys behind the sofa. Mom pulled them out and gave them to her and McKenzie acted like mom had bought her a bunch of new toys! She is so goofy. Some of the toys are getting pretty thread bare so mom will pick up a few more when she goes to PetCo next time. PetCo always has a bunch of toys marked half off. McKenzie doesn't care if they are pricey or not, she just loves having toys! She managed to chew up her Kong bone so mom will have to find another one of those.
I sure hope that Macaw finds a nice home. Sometimes they just bite because they are bored or need more attention. Mom thinks that all birds bite. She can usually tell when I'm going to do it! It's sad that he is stuck in the store but at least he is safe and being taken care of. Perhaps it would be good is someone with another Macaw took him in. I suppose that you never know if birds are going to get along until you get them home.
Mom wants to get by the Dollar Tree also. It's just up the street from us. If she and Jennifer can leave a bit early tomorrow she can stop before she takes Jennifer to work or after she drops her off. Mom is going to have to get McKenzie more food in the morning but she can just get that at the Safeway across the street. McKenzie only eats Iams or Science Diet and the Iams is available at the market. She would have to go to Petsmart or PetCo for the Science Diet. Dad told mom she should buy the bigger bags but mom doesn't have anywhere to store them. She needs to be able to put the food where McKenzie can not get to it. She only gives her a tiny bit of canned food in the mornings. McKenzie sees Merlin getting canned food in th

  Hello My Sweet Gabbie~~
Another busy day even though we hadn't planned on it! Actually is wasn't physically busy! Mom was on the phone with various family members from this morning until 3 pm. The only reason she got off at 3 pm is because she had to go pick Ian up! Her phones battery went dead so she had to plug it in while talking with her sister!!!
Dad was the first one she talked to. He said he had tried to call a few times but moms phone was shut off! Mom did have it in her pocket and leaned into something and shut it off!hehehe That was last week.
Mom had 2 younger brothers. One lives in Arizona and the other in California. They want mom and her sister, who lives up here, to drive down to Portland to meet up with them. They are not sure of the date since moms family is never capable of deciding things like that!hahahahaha I find this all so funny. Mom is just use to it!
Anyway, mom will have to drive an hour over to get her sister and then 2 hours down to Portland. The boys want to stay for a couple of days but mom and her sister both have us pets to take care of so a day trip is okay but nothing longer. Moms sister and her youngest sister in law don't get along very well and it will be a big fight if they have to spend too much time together. Mom asked Ian if he wants to go and see his cousins. They were close when they were younger but haven't seen each other for a few years. There are 4 older ones and then moms youngest brother had 2 boys who are both still in grammar school. Ian hasn't decided yet. He wants to see his cousins but he will have to see if he can get time off work. Mom will pick a date and get the time off work. She will have to get a day or two before off so she can get some sleep before the trip!
The people working on the street are back tonight. They took the asphalt off the 2 right lanes across the street from us. They will probably pave them tonight and then start working on the lanes on my side of the street tomorrow night. Mom will have the radio on to cover up the noise!! No one has to go to work early tomorrow so she is planning on sleeping in!!
It is time for a cute story that I found so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you sweetie! I love spending time with you everyday!
Remember that I love you now and always my friend!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
It has been a quite day around here! Mom got home and took McKenzie out for a walk! McKenzie was so excited when mom opened the crate that she peed on her quilt! She is always overly excited when mom gets home! She runs up and down the hallway and mom has to catch her to get her collar and leash on! Guess she misses mom!
I got up while they were having breakfast and mom made me some toast. Mom went to get McKenzie's quilt to wash and noticed that she had chewed a hole in it! It's a very old quilt so it's no big deal. Mom had to cut the stuffing out and fix the hole before we could wash it! It's all done now and back in the crate.
Jennifer took the day off to go to a craft class at the library but she got sick! She has a cold and feels awful. She is just going to stay home and rest. Mom told her she didn't need to watch McKenzie. Mom could just sleep on the sofa but Jennifer says she is just going to lay there and watch some TV. Mom asked Ian to take McKenzie out while she is sleeping since Jennifer is too wobbly to make it downstairs. Mom got her some soup and tea when she went to pick Ian up.
Mom got caught up at work and it's finally her "friday". Can't wait to have 2 days off! It's going to be great!
It's time for the story so come perch with me! I can't wait to see you and spend the afternoon with you!!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
It has been a pretty quiet day around here. Mom had to come home and scrub the stove again. Ian dumped something on it on his way out this morning. Mom is going to have to get new drip pans because no amount of scrubbing is getting them clean!! This isn't the first time! No one seems to remember to clean up spills right away!
She made breakfast for McKenzie and Merlin and then made me some toast. We washed McKenzie's quilt from her crate and some towels too.
Mom was pretty tired so she took a little nap. She went to get Ian and then stopped at the market on the way home. Ian got he and Jennifer some sandwiches for lunch and mom got the dry food for Merlin. She forgot that the other day and he was out. He doesn't eat a lot of it but if the bowl is empty he won't stop howling!! Can't sleep with a howling cat! Mom made a salad for herself and now I'm going to get a few notes done before she heads off to bed.
She had so much work last night and has more for tonight. Only 2 nights until she gets the weekend!! I can't wait and I imagine mom is ready for it too!
I'm screaming a lot and McKenzie is trying to play with Merlin again! She just won't stop and neither will I!hahahahaha Mom put Merlin in the bedroom and Jennifer is sitting here with me so that mom can get the notes done!!
I found a cute story for us today so come on over and perch with me! I can not wait to see you!
Remember that I love you so very much my friend!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
I am so sorry about our story yesterday. We had everything planned out but as usual it did not work out! Mom took a nap when she got home since Jennifer had to go in early. There was no school yesterday for some reason so she had to be there by 8. Mom dropped her off, took McKenzie for a nice long walk, fed Merlin and McKenzie and made me my toast. She got some laundry started and then when McKenzie got tired out, mom slept for nearly 2 hours. She had to pick Ian up at 2:30 and they went to Walmart after that. She came home to work on my notes but Jennifer ended up getting off early so she went to get her. Jennifer was on the computer while mom was out with McKenzie and deleted our story! Mom had to get some sleep after that and she just didn't have time last night. She had to leave a bit early because of the construction on our street. She always leaves early on Saturday nights so I'll be by with another story on Sunday morning.
Not a lot going on today. Mom is washing her clothes and she got some new towels for Ian and Jennifer and has to wash them. They went clearance and were normally 9.99 and mom got them for 3.00 each. She got 4 of them and some wash cloths also. Their old towels all have holes in them or are ripped so it was great to find a bargain like that on something we needed.
Still haven't heard from dad but mom knows where he goes by the bank account. He was in Phoenix yesterday. Mom knew the company was going to route him through Phoenix since that is where their headquarters are. They needed to fix the comptuer in the truck and they can only do it there. I suppose he will call eventually.
I hope your mom gets to stay home this weekend and just relax! Mom has more things she wants to get done but will do a few things at a time. Today she has the chance to get some sleep so that is what she will do.
I think you are going to like the storybook I have for us! It's is a totally goofy story!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
It turned out to be busy around here today. Mom had not planned that!
We got the kitchen cleaned up while McKenzie and I had our toast. Mom had to run Ian to work early so we had our toast early.
Mom has nearly finished all the laundry which is a good thing! She cleaned out the turtle tank also but while she was doing that I decided to take a shower! McKenzie thinks I want to play when I start throwing my wings out so she can running to my play cage! Mom had to grab her and tell her no. It really doesn't do a lot of good to tell her no since she will back off to begin with but go right back the minute you turn around! Mom finally managed to get the turtle tank cleaned and get them fed.
Moms sister called while mom was having her salad. Mom doesn't really need to talk too much when her sister calls since her sister wants to vent about everything. It's okay. Mom is use to it!
I started yelling as soon as Ian got home from work. I just wanted attention. Mom had not gotten any notes done at that point but sat and played with me for a while! Now I'm snacking again, Merlin is napping and so is McKenzie. Jennifer should be off in a little while and then mom can get more sleep! It's back to work for her!!
It's about time for us to have a story so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you and spend some time with you!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
It was a pretty nice day here. It only got up to 80 so it wasn't uncomfortable. Mom had the windows open and put the fan on.
McKenzie had an upset tummy this morning. It was from the rawhide bone Ian got her yesterday. It happened once before with another rawhide bone so mom is going to stick with the Dingo bones since they don't upset her tummy. Petco only had the small Dingo bones and they are not the right size for McKenzie. Mom can get them at her work so she will buy a few so there will be extras.
It meant that mom had to take her out a lot. McKenzie did not seem sick at all and still wanted to eat everything anyone else had! She got a snack of cheese and one of her cookies. We did share peanut butter toast this morning also. She slept quite a bit this afternoon but seems fine tonight.
Mom scrubbed the stove today and then cleaned off the computer desk and the dining room table. It is amazing how much stuff gets dumped on the dining room table!
Ian was off today so he and mom went over to the market and Ian bought some groceries. He and Jennifer help out with the groceries especially if it's stuff they want that mom isn't going to eat.
When Jennifer got off from work she kept us all company while mom cleaned up the bedroom. Mom had a very old mattress cover on the bed and the plastic part of it started to flake off! Mom had to vacuum the mattress and then she flipped it. She vacuumed the whole room and put clean sheets on the bed. She took off the heavy bedspread. She is going to wash it and store it for the summer. She washed the heavy jackets this morning and hung them in the hall closet.
Don't know what we will be doing tomorrow. There always seems to be something to do around here! Mom says she would love to have a day where all the chores were done and we could just sit and enjoy a clean house!hehehehehe That is never going to happen you know!

  Hello My Sweet Gabbie~~
It was another warm day. I'm just not ready for 80 degrees!! We usually work our way up to it but we went from 40's to 80's overnight! Tomorrow is suppose to be more normal which is in the 60's.
Dad called this morning. He is in Yuma Arizona. He was in Indio CA yesterday and saw another stray dog at the truck stop there. It's so sad. He said seemed afraid of people but looked to be in good shape. She had a collar on so maybe she just got lost. Dad bought her a roast beef sandwich and threw it over to her. He asked the guy in the store to call the ASPCA and let them know she was there. I sure hope she finds her home! It breaks my heart to know that some people just dump their animals and I am praying this is not one of those situations.
Mom and Ian went to Petco after Ian got off work and got me more Higgins. They bought McKenzie some rawhide bones so she spent a few hours chewing that up tonight. It was quite peaceful around here! Mom has to take her out one more time and then we can all go to sleep! Mom only slept for an hour and a half today so she is pretty tired! Unfortunately, Jennifer has to go to work early but it's not so early that mom won't get enough sleep. Mom has to be up before 8 anyway since that is when McKenzie is use to going out. She has been doing so great and we don't want to mess the schedule up and chance and accident!
They are moving people around at moms store so some of the positions open will be filled by people already there. The guy who works in toy, sports and auto will be going to bed and bath. Don't know if that is a great idea but we shall see. He is a nice young man but mom doubts he knows anything about bed and bath. One of the young guys on the freight crew is going to do toy, sports and auto and another one will be doing decor and school. That leaves furniture and housewares still vacant. Mom hopes someone will take the jobs before summer is done!
It's story time so come perch with me! I can't wait to spend time with you my friend! I really do look forward to this time of the day!
Remember that I love you now and always!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
It has been a pretty nice day around here. We didn't do a whole lot, just some laundry. Mom has been busy keeping McKenzie from coming near my cage! I have been chewing up wood and throwing it out to her. That goofy puppy actually tries to eat it! Mom asked me to stop but I figure it's not my fault the dog is a dope!hehehehehe
I then decided to rip the paper up on the bottom of the cage. McKenzie would really like to help with this so mom had to put her on her leash. Merlin started howling for food. Mom filled up his dry food bowl. He took 3 bites and then came over and whacked McKenzie. I guess he didn't like McKenzie paying attention to me and not him! The turtles then dumped their filter over! Mom has had a really fun day with us!haha
It's 87 here! Not suppose to be that warm in April! It doesn't feel warm in the house. Mom opened the windows and put the fan on for us. McKenzie and Merlin are napping at the moment so I have a chance to get some notes done!
Mom did freight last night. The manager said that the day people were going to take care of it but mom knew it wouldn't get done. It's been sitting back there for days since the bed and bath person left. There were 3 boards about 6 feet high but mom got it done. Don't know if there will be more tonight or not. They get freight on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Mom will find out tonight! Her fingers are very stiff so she hopes there is not a lot of it!hehehehe It's just from folding and shoving towels on the shelves!
Mom is doing window around here too. She always does it when it starts to get warmer. She washes off the screens too. The balcony door is the hardest to keep clean since McKenzie sort of slobbers all over it!hahahaha
It's about time for a story so come perch with me!! I can't wait to see you sweetie! It's going to be so much fun to spend time with you and share the story I have!!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~~
It's been a quite day so far. Mom made spaghetti and I had some of that. She got a big bin of salad mix but I didn't want any of that. Maybe tomorrow. She had some and seemed to enjoy it. She eats salad just about everyday.
She was very busy at work last night since they are missing so many people. They told mom they are going to announce who they hired tomorrow but it will still be 2 weeks before they start so mom still has to do the extra department. If they hired someone who is not trained then it will be even longer before mom gets help. She explained it to the manager and he told them they would make sure they got help next week. Honestly mom doesn't hold out much hope for it. They did not even worry about scheduling anyone for the ad last night. They just assume mom will take care of it all!
McKenzie saw a new dog move into the temporary apartment over the office building and she was determined to meet him! She started whining at mom to go out but the dog was not around. McKenzie did get to see Molly and Jack the poodles! That apartment is used by business who send people up here to work for a while or military families who are waiting for housing on the base. It think it's about 1600$ a month. it's furnished and they have a maid service. Since most people there are from the base or a business they don't have to pay the rent the business does! Good thing cause that's a lot of money!
Ian just got home so we are going to do our story so mom can get some sleep. She thinks she will probably be doing freight tonight since they are very behind on that too!
Come perch with me sweetie and we'll have our story! I can not wait to see you and spend time with you my friend!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
Not a very eventful day around here but that is just fine. Mom got her laundry done and just put Ian's into the dryer. He has more to do but he will wait for them to go to bed first.
McKenzie did great in her crate in the bedroom last night. She has been sleeping in there for the near month her dad was here and they were a bit afraid she might fuss in there but Ian and Jennifer kept checking on her and she was fine. She goes right in when mom opens the door. She has been sleeping in the living room unless mom is home but since she was in there for 3 weeks while dad was here, mom decided just to leave it in there.
Her mom didn't have to go any where today. She did go by the library but that is only a few blocks away. The Spring Fair is going on in town and there were a lot of traffic out there. It only runs for 3 days so there is no way they can go. Mom has to work the entire weekend and so does Ian. Her mom read where they were going to have pig races! Sugar would love to see that!
It's story time sweetie so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you!!! I have a very cute story for us!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
It was a busy day but I knew that was going to happen. It took mom about 2 hours to get dad to the airport and get home. The traffic wasn't bad going up but there is always a lot of it the closer to Seattle you get. Mom dropped dad off at United and then headed home. McKenzie had a great time. For some reason she likes to look at planes. She got free from her seatbelt and got in the front seat right after mom left dad at the terminal. I don't think she understands that dad is going to be gone for a while. She eventually got bored when mom got back on the freeway and went to sleep in the back seat.
Mom took her for another walk when she got home and then the came to power wash the stairs. Mom got the doormat inside so it wouldn't get all wet. They really should have warned everyone that they were going to do it.
It was very noisy and scared McKenzie. She started barking at the door which scared Merlin! Mom took all of us out of the room while the guy cleaned. It took a little over an hour. By the time he was dong it was time for Jennifer to go to work. Mom stopped at the library on the way home. Ian called soon after that and when they got back the gardeners were using the blowing thingy! That scared McKenzie too! She will get use to all of it like I am but for now mom just moves us to a different room where it is quieter.
Now mom is waiting for Jennifer to call so she can pick her up and finally get some sleep!
Dad was suppose to text mom when he got back to the truck but he didn't. It's not unusual for dad to forget things like that! He'll remember sooner or later. He figured he wouldn't be getting out of Reno until Sunday since the company has to reprogram the computer in the truck. They have a nice terminal there so dad won't mind staying for another day!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
It got cloudy and cool here this morning. Mom had to put the heat on to warm up the living room for me!
She took Ian to work early and then got my play cage cleaned. I am pleased to let you know that I have been working hard all morning and have a lovely pile off chewed up wood back on the floor of the cage! Looks much more homey!
Ian gets off at 2 and has a doctor appointment at 4. The doctor is just past mom's work so they will have time to come home before they go. Not sure what time Jennifer gets off but if it's not by the time mom gets back from Ian's doctor dad will pick her up.
He is getting his clothes washed and packed up to leave tomorrow. He only brought a few things with him so that he does not have to check a bag.
The truck place called this morning and said the truck was all ready. They did not even put on a new bumper but fixed the old one. The reason they gave for it taking so long was that they were waiting for the new bumper!! I think they were fibbing!!
I supervised the kitchen cleaning this morning and then mom cut up my apple and some pears. She got a big bag of pears at Costco last week but they are just now getting ripe enough to eat. It was pretty good but I think I still like apples the best!
I've got a story ready for us so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you and spend some time with you!
Remember that I love you now and always my friend!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~~
I had a pretty nice day. We got more cleaning done. Mom is working on the drawers in the hall bathroom. Jennifer's step dad does that extreme coupon thing and sends lots of stuff for the family. It's very nice of him but they end up with tons of stuff and it just got shoved into the drawers. Mom and Jennifer have been working on organizing it all. Mom refilled the first aid kit also. She always goes to look for a band aid and there isn't any!! That's Ian!! Mom got an extra box and put it in the first aid kit. They are almost done with the organization. We got the kitchen cleaned up also and did laundry.
Mom got up early to take Jennifer to work. Ian was awake so he went along and they stopped to get tea at Starbucks. She fed Merlin and McKenzie when she got home and then got me out of the night cage. I had the last waffle and it was yummy! Mom is going to buy more soon. She only had to pick up some cat food at the market today and she grabbed another bag for McKenzie also so she doesn't have to worry about that for a while.
We got some rest this afternoon when McKenzie decided to take a nap. It was quiet around here for nearly 2 hours! Amazing!
Tomorrow Ian has to work early and then after work he has another doctor's appointment. Dad will still be here so if Jennifer is not off by the time mom and Ian get back he will pick up Jennifer and mom will just go to bed. Back to work for her tomorrow night! I tell you! These weekends just don't last long enough!!!
Mom and I sure wish there was something we could do to help Nana. It's just not right that she is in pain all the time. I am not impressed with her doctor at all. We keep her in our prayers everyday.
It's story time so come perch with me sweetie! Can't wait to see you and spend some time with you!
Remember that I love you now and always!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~~
It was a nice quite day today. Mom had to run Ian and Jennifer to work and then pick them up. Other than that she was here. We still didn't get much done. We got the kitchen done and vacuumed also.
Mom went to the Redbox to rent some movies to watch. Well, dad and the kids are watching them. Mom got Room for us to watch but we won't be able to watch it until tomorrow. Mom read the book a while back and liked it so we hope the movie is just as good. I'll have popcorn so it's all good with me!
It started raining this afternoon. It was suppose to be just a few sprinkles but mom was drenched when she came back from taking McKenzie out.
Tomorrow mom has to get up to take Jennifer to work early. Ian is off. It always seems that when mom gets days off Jennifer has to go in early!! She will get to bed soon so she'll get enough sleep.
Dad is going back to truck on Friday. Mom has to drive him up to the airport Friday morning when she gets off work. It will be a month before he gets back on the road. Hopefully the insurance company will not drag their feet about getting him paid.
Moms toe feels better but her leg is sore from walking weird for the last 2 days. She can't wait just to get in bed and rest it!! McKenzie needs to go out once more and then we will all be off to bed!!
Story time so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you my friend!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hi Angel Gabbie
It's us, Pearl & Silver finally arriving to select a couple of NTT prize pics. Let's see, could we have the one with the red car? And how about the one with the doggie holding the suitcase? Don't think we have either of those!

Thanks so much for helping out the flockmates with all the eggamples in your gallery of prize pic choices.

Eggstra wing hugs and beak kisses, Pearl and Silver.

It has been another quite day. Mom somehow broke her little toe on the left foot and isn't moving too quickly. It's been hard to get McKenzie up and downstairs! Mom has done this before a couple of times! She is pretty klutzy! It hurts but is not extremely painful so she is okay. She is walking with a limp but it will be okay.
Got cloudy and windy here so I guess we are going to get rain. That is normal for us this and it's not cold so it's all good! It's nearly our weekend so that makes me happy. One more night! Mom was helping with the store audits because the lady who does it will be off on Thursday so mom is helping so the audits don't get behind. The lady's husband had surgery and has to go back to doctor on Thursday. Mom doesn't mind helping and it doesn't involve a lot of walking so that helped mom out!
I hope Aunt Rose got a nice quiet today.
It's story time so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
It's been a quite morning so far. Mom is tired and not making much progress with anything!hahahahahaha She got part of the kitchen cleaned up now she has to do the rest. She needs to get is all cleared out so we can clean George and Gracie out. She also needs to get the fridge cleaned out. Don't know what happened in there but you can't fit anything else in there! Mom just cleaned it out a few days ago! We have gotten some laundry done so today hasn't been a complete waste!
Mom was having a very hard time staying awake while typing my notes. She had to get up and take McKenzie for a walk to wake up! It will be an early day so she will get some sleep this afternoon. She is always extra tired on Sunday since she does the weekly ad on Saturday night and there is a lot of running around involved! Great exercise but as soon as she sits down she is ready to go to sleep.
Ian is at work but dad and Jennifer are home. Jennifer is reading and Merlin is sleeping on the back of the sofa keeping her company. McKenzie is on the floor chewing up a toy! I am in my play cage just watching everyone. Mom thinks we all stayed up late last night since everyone seems to be tired today! I'm not telling!Hehehehe
Hope your mom got to stay home and just relax today. There are lots of people out around here so mom is happy she doesn not have to go anywhere. It's going to be sunny again this afternoon so it looks like everyone is taking advantage of it. Mom is spoiled driving at night when there is hardly any traffic!
I found a very cute story for us so come perch with me! I can't wait to see you and spend some time with you!

  Hello Gabbie~
It turned out to be one of those busy days! Mom and dad went over to Walmart and it was a long trip. Mostly because dad gets to running all over the store and mom has to hunt him down! She ends up carrying the stuff around the store looking for dad and the cart!hehehehehe She got the trash bags and some dish soap. Dad and Ian picked up stuff for dinners for the next few days. Don't know how long dad is going to be staying. The truck was suppose to be fixed in 2 weeks but dad has been here 3 weeks already.
Mom came home and put the stuff away and got some lunch. Then dad took over the computer so we didn't get many notes done. We are going to have to post our story tomorrow. We are so very sorry.
Jennifer went ot her book club meeting today and had a good time.
Dad got the new handle for the shower and they got it put on! The old one cracked and mom had to use a screwdriver to shut the shower off! It's all fixed now.
Come perch with me my friend and we can read our story together. I can not wait to see you!
Remember that I love you my friend!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
It's another pretty day here! Dad had to run to the bank so he is picking Ian up. Mom will be heading off to bed in a few minutes.
Mom ordered new checks from the bank and when they arrived they only had dads name on them. Mom can't sign it if her name isn't there! Silly people! The bank told dad they would order new ones for them so that is taken care of!
Mom and dad were going to go to Walmart but it's too warm to leave McKenzie in the car so either dad can stop by after he picks Ian up or mom can go on her way home in the morning. We need trash bags and dish soap so it's not a big deal that they did not go today.
Mom got to talk to Uncle Chuck for a bit today and he is happy to be home. He still has a long way to go in healing and getting stronger but he will get there! Jenny and Lalo are going to hang out at RaneBeau's place for a while so that Uncle Chuck can concentrate on getting stronger and not have to worry about taking care of them. I bet they are having lots of fun over there.
I have a really cute story for us so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you and share the story with you!! I look forward to being with you every single day!
Remember that I love you now and always!

  Hello Gabbie~
Mom was gone most of the morning. She took Ian to work first and then came home and cleaned the kitchen. She was getting ready to get me my waffle when Jennifer had to go in early. When she got back I got my waffle and we sat and chatted for a bit. Then she and dad had to go to Costco. They went early since they leave McKenzie in the car and it's suppose to be hot this afternoon. They parked in the shade and left the window cracked and she was just fine. It wasn't very warm out yet anyway.
Mom took McKenzie by Petsmart first. She got a thank you card for the girl who did McKenzie's grooming yesterda and gave her a tip also. McKenzie thought she was going to get another bath and tried to follow the girl to the back! Guess she had a good time there! Wonder why she didn't fuss about a bath there and gave mom such a bad time about it at home.
They had to pick up food for Merlin also. McKenzie got a new food bowl since she chewed up the one mom bought her when she first came to live with us! I think she is crazy to chew up her bowl since that is where the food goes! The new one is a lovely pink on the outside and stainless steel on the inside. If there is a way to chew that one up, McKenzie will find it! Actually she is getting a bit better about chewing everything but you still have to watch her all the time!
They didn't buy a whole lot at Costco. Mom gets the toilet paper there and she also got some salsa that she likes and some Cheerios. She bought a bag of pears that were less than a dollar a pound but it's going to take them a few days to get ripe enough to eat. Mom also got the 2 pack of Jif peanut butter. We eat a lot of peanut butter!hehehehe
Mom came home and put the stuff away and is finishing up the laundry. She will be going to be shortly since she goes back to work tonight. She has to finish cleaning her bathroom but it won't take long for that.
They got the bank stuff all straightened out this morning also. What a pain!! Still don't know why they froze up the account but they had better not do it again.
It's just about time for me to read our story so come perch with me! I can't wait to see you and spend time with you!!
Remember that I love you now and always!

  Hello My Sweet Gabbie~~
I had a pretty nice day. Mom took McKenzie to Petsmart to get a bath and her nails filed. McKenzie had to stay there for about 2 and a half hours so I had mom all to myself! I had a lovely time. I got to get down and run around the living room. I tried to get behind the fan but mom said no. Then I want over by the fireplace and tried to chew the carpet! Mom didn't think it was such a good idea. We went back to sit at the computer desk and had a fun time.
Ian and dad went to pick up McKenzie. She sure was happy to get home. All the people at Petsmart just loved McKenzie. She is so sweet around people that they all fuss over her! They said she did great but was afraid of the blow dryer. She has never seen a blow dryer before so it makes sense that she was frightened by it.
Mom had to take Jennifer into work early today. She might have to go early again tomorrow. Ian was off today but has to been in at 7:30 tomorrow.
Mom and dad never went to Costco today. Something strange happened with their joint bank account. Dad went down to the bank to find out what happened and they said it was some sort of glitch. It will all be corrected by tomorrow morning but in the meantime they can't access the account. Crazy I know! mom has an account at another bank but since there was nothing they needed immediately from Costco, they will wait until tomorrow to go.
Mom did take Ian to try to find some shoes. Ian wears a size 16 so there are not too many places where he can find his size. They went to a store called Famous Footwear. Ian found some shoes he liked and they were comfortable tool. Unfortunately there were only available in white and Ian has to wear black shoes to work. He found them online and ordered them. They'll be here on Friday. He really needs new shoes since the old ones have a split on the side of the old ones.
We got more laundry done today and mom vacuumed. She went by the market when she picked up Jennifer and made some spaghetti for dinner. I got some of course! It was yummy. I do love pasta.
It is time for us to have our story so come perch with me sweetie! I can not wait to see you! I love spending time with you my friend!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
I had a pretty nice day. Mom has only had 45 minutes of sleep today so she is pretty tired. We are watching Star Wars right now. Ian ordered it from Amazon and got it in the mail today. Dad has never seen it and neither have I. It's very exciting and lots of action. It's just nice to have everyone here enjoying a movie together.
They are still working on dads truck. They don't even have the new bumper yet. Mom told him to relax since there is nothing he can do to speed it along. The insurance from the other driver has to pay him for his time off so it will all be okay. He is just anxious because they were suppose to send him a check last week and it has not shown up yet. Mom got the rent paid and there is nothing else due right now so we are fine. Dad just worries too much. Mom on the other hand always plans for disasters like this. She knows from experience that this might happen so she tries to stay ready.
WE got some laundry done today and mom ended up cleaning the kitchen 3 times!hehehehehe It kept getting messed up! We made burritos for dinner. I got some of the tortillas and it was really good.
We are going to get more chores done tomorrow. Mom wanted to go by Costco today to get toilet paper but dad said to wait until tomorrow and he will go too! That is a big mistake! Dad takes way too long in Costco. He never gets to go so I suppose it will be okay. Mom just doesn't want to spend her day off hanging out in Costco!!
Story time my friend! Come perch with me! I can't wait to see you and spend some time with you!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
It's been a rainy day. It was raining so hard last night but then this morning there was a beautiful rainbow! It was just awesome and sure did bring a smile to our faces! It was a lovely way to start our day.
We got some sad news from moms sister today. All 3 baby canary babies died. Moms sister says no more eggs. She said if they laid any more that she was going to take them out. Mom told her that would probably make them lay more since they will want to replace them. I suggested she get another cage and put the boys in one and the girls in the other! Problem solved!! At least they do not have a very long breeding cycle so they wouldn't have to be separated for too long.
Only one more night and mom has the weekend! Can't wait! She did lots and lots of clearance last night. They marked down the silk stems~fake flowers~so mom had them piled up all the way down the aisle!! It's much easier to mark them that way. That is why it is good that mom works at night because she couldn't do that during the day when the customers were there. They had pheasant feathers and peacock feather also. Guess people use them in vases!! There was lots of wall art that went clearance also. Mom got bopped in the head with one of the pictures!hehehehehehehe It slipped off the shelf! It was a canvas so no big deal.
Mom has to go pick Ian up soon and then we will have our story! I can't wait to see you so come and perch with me!
Remember that I love you now and always my friend!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
Yesterday got so busy. We had not planned on doing much but it didn't turn out that way. Mom ended up going to the market since they never made it over to Walmart. She got me some nice apples and a take and bake pizza for the family to have for dinner. They didn't save me any of it! Ian bought himself and Jennifer sandwiches for lunch.
Mom had the kitchen to clean up before she could clean the turtle tank. She didn't have a filter and the market doesn't carry them anymore. Mom got them cleaned out and just washed the filter that was in there. She picked up a new one at work last night.
McKenzie was trying very hard to get to Merlin's food yesterday and mom told her no. I yelled out "McKenzie No!". Everyone started laughing! Mom said she knew I was going to pick that up sooner or later since it's all I hear these days!
Today I was trying to take a shower and McKenzie jumped up on the front of my cage! Mom grabbed her! Dad said it would have been the perfect time for me to use my new phrase but honestly I too busy trying to bite her to remember to use it!
I'll remember next time!
Sounds like your mom and Nana got some awesome deals on Friday. Since food prices keep going up, it's great to find those deals and stock up. Mom always checks out the sales at her store because if she buys the store brand, she gets a 10% discount. She got 3 boxes of cereal for $4.50 since they were on sale 3 for $5. She got raisin bran, cheerios and the kind with the mini marshmallows in it. I like that one! I don't eat the marshmallows but I like the cereal!
Ian works until 2 today and mom is hoping to stop by Walmart when she picks him up. She still needs to get that kitty litter!!
I am ready to read a story for us so come perch with me! I can't wait to see you and spend the afternoon with you!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
I am here early so I can get a decent note done! Mom has to pick up Ian soon and then stop at Walmart to get kitty litter and more cat food for Merlin. She knows that when she gets home dad will be on the computer so we have to get everything done now.
It's another beautiful day here. Everyone is out in shorts and flip flops!hehehehehehe We only have to hit 50 for that to happen and we are going to be at 70 today!
Mom already took Jennifer to work. McKenzie is getting restless in the car now so mom is hoping dad will watch her when she goes to get Ian. It will be getting too warm to leave her in the car now so mom is going to have to do more shopping before she leaves work in the mornings. There are certain thinks like the kitty litter that she buys at Walmart. Mom can not stand the ones that are full of perfumes and the Walmart brand is not stinky! I know! You would think it would be stinky from the cat but mom keeps it clean so that smell isn't a problem! Over perfumed stuff is a problem. Mom can't stand it. I think that's why she dislikes the carpet soap so much!
Work was busy for mom last night. The 2 day ad took her nearly the entire night. Mostly it was garden stuff because planting season is here so that will be the focus of the store for then next few months. All the decor for garden was half off and there were lots of little things here and there that mom had to go make signs for. It's not one of her usual departments so she just had to walk around and look for things that needed signs. Tonight she has to get ready for the weekly sale that starts on Saturday night!
I hope your mom and Nana had a good day. I know on Friday they do the errands. Hope the traffic wasn't bad and they got to go to where they wanted to go to! Traffic is heavy here but mom is hoping Walmart won't be too crowded!!
I found a really cute story for us today so come perch with me and listen to it! I can not wait to see you and get to spend the afternoon with you!

It was a pretty nice day for me. Mom was gone longer than she thought she would be and I wanted to go into the bedroom as soon as she got home. She only has to do the regular dropping off and picking up tomorrow so we can have more time to play.
She still has to take McKenzie out for a walk so I have to make this short tonight.

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
We had a busy day but we got lots done. Mom vacuumed and dad followed with the carpet cleaner. It got very loud here! Luckily they ran out of soap so I got some peace and quite!hehe
I must admit that I did my fair share of screaming today! I was just letting the joy out!
Mom finally got the trash out. They poured new cement in the trash compactor pad and the compactor has been gone for nearly 2 weeks. They had a trailer for trash but that got filled up really quickly. Everyone else was just dumping the trash on the walk way next to the trailer but mom was not going to do that. She took 5 bags out!
Mom was only gone taking Jennifer to work and a quick stop at the market. Wednesday is the day that the new coupon hit at the Safeway across the street. They had bagged salad for 80 cents so mom grabbed some of that. She prefers to make up her own salad stuff but since we were busy she got the ready to eat stuff.
She got the fridge moved and cleaned and then mopped behind it. She did the stove when McKenzie took a nap. She had to scrub and wax the dining room table also because Merlin's water bowl was up there and McKenzie dumped it. The place mats were new and still had the sticker on the bottom and they all got stuck to the table! It's all cleaned up now. Mom is going to find one of those vinyl table clothes for it. She doesn't like the place mats because they slide. Ian is the one who picked them out and now he doesn't like them either!
Merlin wasn't feeling too good this morning but he's okay now. It's hairballs! Mom buys this stuff she puts on his paws and when he licks it off it takes care of his hairballs! Cats are so gross!hehehehehehe
Time for our story sweetie so come perch with me! Can't wait to see you and spend some time with you! It's always the perfect way to end my day!

  Hello Dear Gabbie~~
It was a pretty nice day here. Mom managed to get dad to get out of bed for a while so she could wash the sheets and the quilt. She got the bed made and started the wash while he was making pizza. He feels better but still lays down a lot. He is watching TV on his phone.
Mom got stuff to make enchiladas for them for dinner but they ate the pizza and are not interested in dinner. Mom will just find something for herself and make the enchiladas tomorrow.
We never did get through to Uncle Chuck yesterday. Aunt Denise left us an email telling us that the was moved to the rehab place. It's called Heartland and it's in Moline which is close to his house. She told us they don't have phones in the rooms so you can leave a message with the nurses station. His sister is going to bring him his cell phone so hopefully we can talk to him then. Mom is still going to send a card to his house so he knows we are thinking of him. His sister is going to bring him the mail so he'll get the card. We hope he doesn't have to stay there for too long.
Mom got McKenzie a rawhide bone to chew on to keep her occupied while mom gets some chores done. She was going to move the fridge and clean behind it but when dad started making pizza she figured it was going to be a while and it was. She had to pick up Ian and Jennifer so we never got to it today. She can get it done tomorrow and McKenzie can have her chew bone then.
It's about story time so come perch with me! I can't wait to spend time with you! This really is my favorite time of the day and nothing makes me happier than reading a story with you and Dixie and feel you on my shoulder! I am so blessed to have you as my friend!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
I had a fairly quiet day. Dad has a cold so he keeps going back to bed! He had lunch and then he went back to bed. Mom is just going to rest on the sofa until Jennifer gets back.
Jennifer went to a craft class at the library. We hope she has fun at it. Don't know what craft they are going to do but Jennifer likes doing all sorts of crafts.
Mom was very busy last night at work. They put out all the Outdoor living stuff. A lot of it is priced wrong so mom is going to have to let the office know so they can fix it. She had an ad to do also. Luckily most of the Easter stuff was gone so they put is all together on one rack. It's all 50% off for the week. It's her last night tonight before our weekend so she will be working on getting the ad for Friday ready. No special holidays so mom has no idea why they keep having these weekend ads. Most people shop on the weekend so I guess they figure they can get more sales if they have sales then.
It sounds like your family has a wonderful Easter. Very nice to go out and then come home for desert! Desert is my favorite you know!hehehehehe
I'm going to post the story now so mom can get some sleep before she has to go to work!! Come perch with me my friend! I can not wait to see you and spend some time with you!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
McKenzie and I shared a blueberry muffin for breakfast and it was yummy. We don't really celebrate Easter around here since mom always has to work and Ian is still at work. Maybe we will do something when mom is off this week. She did get a couple of vegan chocolate bars and will share them with dad, Ian and Jennifer. I think the muffin was a much better idea!
Jennifer just got back from her sisters house. She went down on Friday for a birthday party for her brother in law. He and Ian share a birthday. They announced the sex of the new baby and Maddie is getting a little sister!! I think Maddie is very excited. I know I can't wait to meet her. They don't have a name picked out yet but I'm sure it will be great.
We talked to Uncle Chuck a while ago and he is doing okay. There is a complete update on from RaneBeau on the calendar page. Jenny and Lalo have gone over to visit with Aunt Denise and the flock which is just wonderful. I know Uncle Chuck feels much better knowing that they are safe and have lots of company. I can not even imagine them having stayed at home alone for this many days. The neighbors, who are also bird people, and Uncle Chuck's sister were there to check on them and make sure they had food and clean water, but we both know it's not the same as having someone there. I don't think I have ever been left alone for more than a few hours at a time. Usually it's when they go to the movies. Even if mom goes out to the market there is usually someone else here. I know lots of birds whose parronts work during the day so I guess you get use to them being gone to work. Guess I'm lucky that mom is only gone while I'm sleeping!
Mom just finished washing her clothes and they are going into the dryer. Ian will be off in a few minutes and she'll go get him. Dad said he would watch McKenzie so mom can sleep but he has a cold and took Nyquil so he might still be asleep when she gets back! I think Jennifer went to take a nap also since she said Maddie was crawling on her at 2am!! Guess Maddie was really excited to have Aunt Jenny sleeping over!
I have an Easter story for us to day, so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you and spend some time with you my friend!
Remember that I love you now and always!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
I am so sorry about yesterday. Here we thought we would have more time with dad home to help with the puppy but it's not working out that way.
Not much going on today. Mom talked to her aunt today. They are having a big family dinner tomorrow. Mom and Ian are both working so they won't be going anywhere. Her aunt and uncle are flying down to California next week for their grandsons wedding! He is a year younger than Ian.
Jennifer is at her sister's house and we are waiting to find out if Maddie is going to have a brother or sister in August. It's very exciting!
We hope your mom got to have some quite time today. She certainly had a busy day yesterday!!
Remember that I love you my friend! I've got the story ready so come perch with me! I can't wait to see you!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
I lost the computer to dad this afternoon when mom went to pick Ian up at work and I'm just now getting a chance to use it! Dad doesn't seem to be able to take care of McKenzie for too long of a time before he wants a break!hahahahaha It has not been easy for mom and she is having a hard time getting things done around here!
We did talk to Uncle Chuck this afternoon. He says he will be going to another hospital near his home for physical therapy. He still seems a bit confused and mom is not sure what happened. He says the fell and hit his head on the fridge but we don't know if that is all that is going on. We will try to find out and I'll let you know!
I have to post the story in the morning since it's time for mom to go to work!
Come perch with me my friend! I can not wait to spend some time with you! This is my most favorite time of the day!
Remember that I love you now and always!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
I am having a nice day so far. Mom got up early to take Ian to work and then made me an English muffin. McKenize has been running around all crazy today but she seems to be quieting down now.
Mom is going to drop Jennifer at work and then hopefully get some sleep! We got the kitchen done and the laundry done. Mom buy big bags of snack food like dried fruit, nuts and cookies and then puts them into individual bags so everything is ready to grab for lunches. She did that this morning. McKenzie stood right under her feet in case she dropped something! She found some oatmeal cookies at the dollar tree and they are very good! It's easier to have it all ready to go since she want to keep everyone from buying fast food too often.
Mom talked to Uncle Chuck this morning and he is doing okay. She does not know why he is in the hospital. He said he fell but he wasn't sure about when. Mom knows that the cleaning lady comes on Monday afternoon so she may have been the one who called the ambulance. Mom called Aunt Denise to see if she had heard from him and she was the one who found out he was in the hospital. At least we know Jenny and the flock are okay and Aunt Denise will be stopping by to check on them this evening! Sad to think of him having to stay in the hospital but at least he is somewhere he will be taken well care of!
It's time for our story so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
We had a quiet day. Mom had to go to the market to get a few things and take Jennifer to work but the rest of the day she was with us. McKenzie was really wild today but I think that is because dad is home.
When mom went to the market she took Ian to lunch for his birthday. They had a nice time. Dad made homemade pizza for dinner and he liked that too. He and dad really love that pizza.
Mom was able to get a few things done today. She is hoping to get more done tomorrow. She has to go back to work tomorrow night but since dad is home she can get more sleep since he will pick Jennifer up. Jennifer is off on Friday and Monday. She is going down to her sister's house on Friday. Her sister is going to pick her up. Her brother in law's birthday is today too and they are having a party on Saturday. They are going to announce the sex of the new baby too. Can't wait to find out if Maddie is getting a brother or sister!
We were not able to get a hold of Uncle Chuck today. He hasn't been on BC for 2 days and we are worried about him. Mom thinks his visiting nurse came today so maybe he had to go to the hospital or something like that. We are praying that he and the birds are all okay. Don't know who we could call to find out about them. Mom knows he has a sister that lives nearby. I guess we just have to wait and pray that he contacts us.
It's time for the story so come on over and perch with me. I can not wait to spend some time with you!!
Remember that I love you so very much my friend!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
Dad got home really late. Guess the flight was late and then there was a lot of traffic. He woke McKenzie up when he came in so he let her out of her crate for a little while. He moved it into the bedroom and when he opened the door she went right in and went to sleep! She sure was happy to see him.
Mom got home and took her out then gave her and Merlin breakfast. Dad played with her for a bit but then want back to sleep so mom and I took care of her for the rest of the day. She did get tired and slept for about 2 hours so mom sat on the sofa and got a little nap.
Dad went out to dinner with his friend who was up near Seattle having his truck repaired. He just got back and I guess he had a nice time.
It's our weekend now but I don't know what we have planned. Mom has a few project she has been working on that she would really love to finish up.
It's about time for our story so come perch with me! I can't wait to see you and spend the evening with you!
Remember that I love you, now and always!
