  Heya, Oatie and Makana!
Oh, yes, it is chilly out there! Wind chills were 9 degrees when Mom finally got her butt out of bed this morning (8:30 AM). Nothing like sleeping in! For shame on her!

Tomorrow I will start the story of Lizzie--Mom has a little bit to fine tune on it. We do hope you enjoy learning about our beloved Dragon. You know she has to be descended from Mortimer, as she is a superb chef!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and dropping off that vote for me. I truly appreciate it!

Wing hugs coming your way!
Your buddy,

How fun to see you in the spotlight! I sure hope you are getting proper respect from your flock.
As piglet would say, its a blustery day here. It has been cloudy too. Saturday, the weatherguessers are saying, there will be snow to shovel. Don't like that, we lose the skins to outdoor work!
Mom was helping at school, then went to help pack for childcare at a conference location for a meeting on Sunday. For some reason she was sleepy when she finally got home, So I'm dictating from her lap so I can get my skritches.

  Hi Oatie
since we are still getting winter advisory warnings, more snow and temps still dropping down to the low 10s i thought i would talk about chickadees those cute little black and white balls of fluff we see flying around outside in this weather. Chickadees Are Cold Weather Machines

Though any bird that survives winter in the North amazes those of us that depend on furnaces and warm blankets, the black-capped chickadee may be the most incredible of all winter survivors. although none can compare to the emperor penguin thats for sure.

“Black-capped Chickadees have a wonderful assortment of adaptations for the winter. “Carefully hidden food items, dense winter coats, specially selected winter roost cavities, and perhaps most remarkable of all, the ability to go into nightly hypothermia, thus conserving large amounts of energy, greatly increases the chances of survival,” The ability to go into regulated hypothermia actually lowers the chickadee’s body temperature in a controlled manner, down to about 12 or 15 degrees (F.) below their normal daytime temperature of 108 degrees (F.). This remarkable adaptation allows the bird to conserve almost 25 percent of its hourly metabolic expenditure when the outside temperature is at freezing. The lower the outside temperature, the more energy conserved

“Chickadees are not the suburban wimps that some people think they are as every winter morning chickadees replace the fat they used overnight and struggle against starvation and stinging cold. even though they are tough survivors that live close to the edge of life i still find myself partial to Bue Jays as i spot their bright blue color against the white snow and hear them calling out to me every morning. at least i like to think they are calling out to me.

love BOO BOO the rare Blue Bali Mynah

We have been absent of late as BC problems, Internet problems and mom says she was too BUSY. Um Yeah, riggght .... I think she was just being lazy lol. Daddy wrecked his truck on the snow and ice yesterday. He is ok but that's like wreck number 4 in the last 43 years ... Mom thinks he needs to stop that trend. Have a great day, V4U. Hugs.

  Oatie and Makana -
I know you're just trying to protect your sweet mama Oatie, but it's probably not a real good idea to attack anyone coming to visit ! Today was the coldest one so far ! ! So cold it hurts - but as mom said - you don't have to shovel cold ! So she did go out yesterday and get her feathers trimmed and pick up a few groceries since snow comes today - only 4-6 inches, and I know it's not much but YIKES ! More ?

Something really sad and disturbing happened here yesterday. I was just sitting with mom having a lovely head skritch and all the wild friends were outside on the patio eating, when all of a sudden a hawk flew in - right onto the patio, not 2 feet from the sliding glass door - and snatched up a blue jay ! Right from the porch ! ! ! Mom cried and hugged me tight, I squawked and daddy closed the drape . . . Although there are a lot of hawks around here, none has ever come in this close to the house ! We know that's nature's way, but we don't want to see it !

Hope to see you tonight at Milonga ! And I say hope with all capital letters ! We had some internet problems this morning and it took forever while daddy did a system restore . . . sigh. love you ! Cookie

  Hi Oatie and Makana
How has YOUR weather been?
We actually are doing pretty well, as long as the furnace works.
We are having a warm up today. The weatherguessers think we may even get up to 30. Lots warmer than the last few days. When mom got the paper she could already tell before 7 am that it was lots warmer.
Not too much snow here, south is getting LOTS today. Sometimes we think the lakes protect us.

Hi Otie,
It was -10 (actual temp) this morning when Momma went to Curves! But I guess she shouldn't complain if your temps are -30!! Thanks for your votes and the cookies. Lucy shared one with me. Momma might not be able to blog this weekend because on top of having Apollo, she has to cook tomorrow for our bird club potluck that's on Sunday. Sat. evening, Apollo's Mom is probably coming over to pick him up and have a little visit. Then on Sunday, there's church. Immediately following that, we rush home, load up the car with food and birds and leave for bird club. It's a 45 min. drive, but it's worth it. Then when we get home Momma has to feed all the other birds, change the papers in their cages, tuck us all in and crash! So we'll see how it goes. But thank you in advance for your votes. :)
Love and Hugs, Finnegan♥

Great party for Ipo yesterday ! psst . . . Oatie - you can take the lampshade off now !

Hope you guys had a good Christmas - I discovered that SantaBird is a very forgiving fellow cause I got presents despite my indiscretions ! Great huh ? Today though was the best, even though it rained mom was home all day ! She did some reading and some thank you cards, but everytime I threw a toy to engage her in play she responded just the way I wanted ! ! !

Give your sweet mom my love ! And if I don't get by again in the next couple days ? HAPPY NEW YEAR !

  Merry Christmas Oatie and Makana !
Cookie arrives with a plate of cookies and a poem :

And who are you ?
Not an angel, no.
Nor Herod.
Perhaps you are a magi,
mapping the miracle on a chart of stars;
a shepherd trading sleep
for a chance to see a golden child
in swaddling clothes;
a Simeon
who has hoped for a lifetime to find
the one called Emmanuel, God is with us.
Or are you like Mary,
prayerfully waiting for the King of Kings
to be born in you ?

Well, He is here !
Sing ! Sing ! "O, Holy Night."
Run toward His Light !

Love to all my BC family !

We're finally getting back to our routine in my house ! Today mom promised to stay home except for a quick run to the market - I have to have my sugar snap peas after all ! Then it's laundry and maybe start working on some crafts for the holidays - tomorrow is December ! Where did the time go ?

Thanks for the cookies - I just finished the last bite of pumpkin pie for breakfast and was in need of something yummy !

Dad moved my cage away from the window so it's harder to watch the outside friends . . . the windows here are old and drafty - be good and give your sweet mama a hug ! love Cookie

  Hi Oatie and Makana !
You two have to learn to share mom ! There's enough love in her for both of you ! We sure hope she's feeling better today !

It's Sunday - and it's getting chilly and windy here. Dad got up during the night to close windows :( So when mom got up (after sleeping in till almost 6:00 !), instead of getting right on line with her coffee like she usually does, she went out to start cleaning up the back deck. There's a freeze warning for tonight so all the plants have to be cleaned off (bugs) and dragged in before the end of the day . . .

Mom also has a little school work to get done which I'm hoping she'll let me assist with ! Math tests and compositions . . .

Have a great Sunday ! love Cookie

  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........
Jesse 227428

Come visit me, SKY, thank you for Jan 17th, 2016 BOTD, Little Angel, JESSE, thank-you for BOTD friends! & SWEETIE, Thank-you for BOTD June 19, 2016.
