  Tomorrow is the big day
so I'm here to tell you that I am thankful for your friendship ! and to see if you want to go for a jog on Friday after overeating on Thursday !

If turkeys thought, they'd run away
a week before Thanksgiving Day
but turkeys can't anticipate
and so there's turkey on my plate !

Happy Thanksgiving to you Rufous, your flock and your mom ! Love Cookie

  Hi Rufous and flock,
Thank you for keeping me in your prayers, the doctor said I will be needing a lot so mom put out the word. You know, like Cookie says, the bird is the word. :)

Well, I think the medicine is helping cause I gained a few grams or so. :) That's a good sign, right? :)

Here's a vote for you this sunny Monday.

Thank you and God Bless you all!

Love & hugs,

Sallykins

  Hi Rufous,
I'm okay, thanks. Yes, that is a picture of me way way before the abuse and neglect from my previous owner. :(

The doctor didn't put me to sleep during the surgery, but it did hurt a little bit.

The lump on my nare was basically a pus formation kinda thing, well that's what the doctor said. He said the other doctor did a good job, but not..... that good. To put it nicely.

He wants me to come back again next saturday so he can check on my boo boo. He also wants to clean it out more after I heal a little.

Later on he said he would fill the gap with an acrylic type of stuff to reinforce my beak to try and prevent it from falling off and to make it stronger for me. Right now my beak is weak due to the gap and stuff.

He is leaving me on the antibiotics to try and control the infection/bacteria that is in my body. Mom does see signs of improvement which is very good.

I am more playful and mom requested a smaller needle so I got a 30 gauge instead of the other one which mom thought was kinda big for me and harder for her to inject in me.

Also, the doctor said that I would need lots of prayers to get through this really really big ordeal. Mom said no problem she will send out a request for prayers.

I will keep you all posted on my condition.

Mom says that I am such a fighter and has this spunk in me, mom feels that I am getting better and has the strongest will to live.

So, again I ask to please keep me in your prayers. I’m gonna need all that I can get.

Thank you and God Bless you all.

Hope you all have a nice sunny Sunday and here's a vote for you too. :)

Love & Hugs,

Sallykins & mama Ruthie

  I sure hope our snow is done !
It was horrible - do you know some schools and businesses were closed all week ? YIKES ! Mom's car had a tree fall on it and it couldn't get to the body shop cause of all the downed trees and power lines - it's finally there - wings crossed it gets fixed quickly ! I have my well bird visit with the vet on Friday and that's stressful enough without having to go in a strange car . . .

You're right, a little nip might get mom moving - LOL

  You have snow too ?
We had it last weekend - more than a foot ! It took the parronts 9 hours to travel 13 miles home and while they were sitting in a parking lot that is sometimes used as a road . . . CRACK . . . down comes a tree on the hood of mom's car ! Ironic thing was, when they finally got home, guess what was where she usually parks her car ? Yup, a tree ! She was going to get it either way ! So now the car is in the body shop - thank goodness for insurance ! Hope all is well with you ! I've missed you . . . love Cookie

guess what ? my mom gets crazy the same way ! only no hot flashes . . . she just doesn't sleep anymore - sometimes 4:00 in the morning she's up and wondering around the house . . .

Over the weekend she went through a cleaning frenzy ! She did the dining room carpets and washed and ironed the curtains, then she did her closet - and then she looked at my beautiful mess and ((( gulp ))) cleaned it up ! So today I'm really busy getting it back the way I want it ! ! !

I guess as long as she doesn't take any Rufous time it won't be too bad . . .

Mom has needed bird therapy the last couple days - and I've happily obliged ! The school is repairing some of the caulking damaged by Irene . . . scaffolding right outside her classroom - long division just can't compete ! Luckily, it looks they finally finished . . .

Good to hear from you =) Love Cookie

  Rufous !
I don't know why she puts her head in her bell - me I prefer either my food dish (you can make GREAT echoe noises in there) or paper towel rolls (that ALWAYS gets the parronts attention !)

The goofy parronts are going out to play miniature golf later - and Saturday they are going to a flea market (go figure THAT one out !) Mom goes back to her classroom on Tues. and the students start on Wed. - it will be very quiet around here too - maybe we should make some playdates !

  As long as mom put something in it's place
maybe santa bird will bring a babbleball . . . the coconut sounds interesting, only it sounds quiet - so you have to make the accompanying noises ?

Yes, Irene is gone, the sun is shining - yesterday I even supervised mom putting the patio furniture and potted plants back out on the deck. We were very lucky, although our town is a MESS ! Mom's commute went from4 to 13 miles because a bridge she uses is washed away - luckily school doesn't start till Tues. here ! Electricity comes and goes as the power company works at getting everyone back on the grid.

Have a great day - thanks for caring - Love Cookie

Teach that fur ball to throw things at a dragon, don't piss of a dragon like that, makes them a wee bit mad =). Now for the big guy, lets go for the head, "Blue Boy" is a sucker for a good head soaking from a little guy, especially from surprise attacks.

This is terrible news ! Almost as bad as me having to leave home today - even though it's beautiful we're going to the in-laws for the weekend.

  Hi Rufous !
Mom is worried I might learn to crow ! Or buzz ! ! We had really bad thunderstorms on Sunday and a tree came down on the road behind us - the crews were out with their chain saws till almost midnight clearing the tree away - needless to say it was noisy and I woke up on the wrong side of the perch yesterday !

Did they catch the bad man ? Or should you and I go ahead with covert operations ?

  Hi Rufous !
Thank you for your very kind words - you're one of my bbf's too =)

When I want to get up I yell "Come 're" over and over until my cover is taken off - then I immediately want my breakfast - corn, pepper, sweet potatoe, and green beans ! Yummmmm

I helped mom cut out letters for her classroom bulletin boards last night ! I love paper !

  Hey Rufous!!
We would like to thank every birdie for coming to our Healthy Coming-Out Party/Belated Hatch Day Party for me. The Hatch Day was for me and the Healthy part for both of us being medicine free. :) Thank you every birdie from the bottom of our little birdie hearts. We appreciate all the love and support, and many many prayers and well wishes we received from everyone.
I hope everyone enjoyed themselves as much as we did watching every birdie having a blast. :)
Mahalo to you all and till next time, practice those swings, you never know when the next piñata will be coming. :)

Big Birdie Hugs & Kisses,

what does a babble ball say ? What sounds does it make ? sounds like a really fun "annoy the parronts" toy ! Tell mom to up a picture of you playing with it !

So vacation was really fun - mom put a couple pictures of me up "supervising" lake activities ! Of course it's always good to be home and squawking with friends again =)

Thanks for coming and grab some grub or grab a bat there's lots to eat and swing at. Mom hung up all the pinatas last night so pick a bat and size of the fur ball you wanna take a wack at. :)

Oh, I hope your skin sis's fur ball is gonna be okay.
I'll think good thoughts only cause its your skin sis. :)
