  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! Everything is fine here at my nest. I'm having some playtime with mom and soon I will head off to the play cage for my apple.
We have lots of chores to get done today and I think mom is going over to the market to get a few things. It's only at the end of our driveway so she won't be gone long. Later on we will be getting some cooking done. My beans and grains for my mash are soaking and mom will cook those tonight. I am hoping that some corn bread will be on the menu too! A little corn bread to go with my mash sounds like an excellent idea to me!
I do hope you enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still very pretty here and I am enjoying this last month of summer!

Today is the little niece Maddie 2nd birthday! Time flies! The picture in my gallery is from this morning! She is going to have a party today but I don't get to go. I guess one little kid around is okay but a whole bunch of them would be too much for me to take! I'll get to see her soon!

Merlin is shedding, Mandy is shedding and I am molting! That evil vacuum has been out way too much! mom tries to move us to different rooms when she uses it but she has had to use it so much in the past few days that one of us is always around! Merlin doesn't really care about it but it kind of freaks Mandy out! I go into Monster Bird mode and stomp around! Mom thinks it's funny when I do that! A little respect for the zon attitude is needed!!!!

The book your mom is writing sounds so cool!!!! To have a special book that is all yours is going to be a very exciting thing for the little granddaughter! Your mom is so very talented!

Enjoy the day and I do hope it's just perfect!

I hope you are having a great day! It's still very summery up here and we are enjoying it. It hasn't been too hot at all! It's been nice to have so much sunshine!
It's been a nice quiet day so far. I like the quiet ones!
When mom is working, she keeps her cell phone in the pocket of her apron. When she went on break last night she shoved her wallet into the pocket with the cell phone and accidentally dialed Aunt Theresa!! Mom goes on break at 1am so it was 4am at Aunt Theresa's house! Luckily Aunt Theresa was awake. She told mom that my Ceasaur and Cheeta are both doing well. If you didn't know, they were both bitten by one of their macaw fiblings who had escaped their cage! Ceasaur got his foot hurt and Cheeta ended up with a broken wing. They are both healing and will be just fine! That made me very happy and worth mom being embarrassed about calling at an ungodly hour! I keep telling you all that mom is such a dork!hahahahahahaha
Is your skin brother home yet? We think about him everyday and make sure that he is in our prayers!
I hope you enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and sending hugs your way!

I hope you had a wonderful day. It was a pretty nice one here. We had some computer problems but mom ran a scan and it all seems to be running okay now.
I spent the day supervising chores and playing with toys. Dad is home and he is a bit messy. There is of course tons of laundry stacked in the living room! Really kind of boring around here but that is just fine by me!
Mom did the market thing early today since dad had 2 doctor appointments. He has to squeeze them all in when he is home. I don't know when he is going to go back out on the road.
I hope you have all had some nice weather and that mom and dad are enjoying some boating this summer!
Enjoy the evening and I do hope it's perfect!

I hope you are all having a wonderful 4th of July! We had some dork across the street blowing off fireworks at 10am this morning! It's sunny out!!!HELLO!!! What fun are fireworks in the sunlight! Anyway about an hour into his sunlight show we smelled smoke and the fire department showed up! I feel so very sorry for firefighters on a day like today! They are going to be so very tired! I hope if he decides to do a nightime show he is more careful.
Fireworks are not allowed in my complex which I am very happy about. I like looking at them but I'm glad they are not allowed around here.
I hope you have just a wonderful night!!

I hope you are enjoying the day! Poor Bo! I bet she is pretty upset about the spa treatment! I don't get that done. They use to have my wings clipped but since I don't fly mom said it was too much stress for me and not necessary! I do have a cement perch to keep my nails in order!
We are so very, very Happy Happy Happy that Peter is coming home soon! We have been praying for him every day since he left! Really!! Every day!
Our Walgreens collects candy and gum to ship to the troops. Mom always says a prayer that some of the stuff we bought goes to Peter! We think they send it through the USO but we think it's very cool to have some Reeses Peanut Butter cups when you are so very far from home!
I bet the new counter is going to be fabulous! Take out is not always bad! Maybe it will be pizza and you will get some crust! I had some last night and it was so yummy!!
Have a fabulous day and tell Bo I send my condolences for her spa treatment!!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you had a great day! I had a pretty good day. Mom has a sinus infection so we just spent a quiet day together.
I have 3 new cousins! Mom's sister took in 3 budgies from a family who moved to Ohio. They had a nice flight cage but no toys and the family just left them in a back room and didn't pay any attention to them! They didn't even have any names! Mom suggested that her sister name them Prue, Piper and Paige after the 3 sister in Charmed. They are 3 little ladies who are 3 years old! Mom told her sister not to look at them directly in the eye and to give them some time to get use to her. She has already bought them all kinds of toys and perches! I think they will be very happy there!
We hope the parents are getting some time out on the boat since it's summer vacation!! I bet the baby ducks are so very cute!!
Have a great night! I hope it's just perfect!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Happy Summer!

Our first day of summer did not start out so well. There was a dead pigeon on the balcony this morning and it made us all very sad. We could hear the other pigeons cooing and we wonder if they knew what had happened. There was no obvious signs of what it died from so maybe it was just old and it was it's time to go. Still, it was a lousy way to begin summer.

We have a few chores to get done and dad is going to take the rest of his stuff over to his truck. He will leave tonight. Mom will drop him off on her way to work since the truck terminal is in the same town mom works in.

I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are enjoying the day!
We had a crazy day. The fire alarm people did not show up until nearly noon. They started on the other side of the complex! We had already done all our chores and were just waiting for them to show up. Mom had just gotten on Facebook and went to click on a Linkin Park Video when the fire alarms went off! Mom thought it was feedback from the video and turned the sound down! When the screeching kept going she final realized it was the alarms!hahahahaha
Mandy, Merlin and I were taken into mom's bathroom to wait for the inspection to be done. It was only for 10 minutes but Mandy was freaking out! She was panting hard and kept trying to squeeze behind mom! Merlin just sat in the sink like he always does. I was perfectly okay and just spent time chatting with mom.
Mom had to go to the market after that. She wasn't gone for a long time at least. She and Ian went to the mall to look for shoes for Ian first. He wears a 15 so not all the stores have shoes that big. He found some at Famous Footwear so he's happy! They stopped at Dairy Queen after that. They were taking donations for the children's miracle network at Diary Queen so mom bought a big balloon and put my name on it! It's now hanging at the Dairy Queen in the Mall! I'm gonna be famous!hahahahahaha It's the biggest balloon there!
Did you get your new countertop yet? It must be very exciting to get a new kitchen! I hope you enjoy it!
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! I hope the weather is lovely at your home!
It has been a very boring week so far. Nothing exciting to share!
It is sunny and very nice outside so I have been spending some time watching the people in the complex pool. Always seems silly to me to be splashing around and getting all wet. They all seem to enjoy it though! I have been spending a lot of time playing with my measuring cups this week. Mom got a plastic link chain and hung them from the top of the play cage. I love to slam them into the side of the cage and just swing back and forth with them!
It's our weekend now. I know that cleaning in on the schedule but I don't know what else. I think the dog is going to get a bath but I never see that happen. I just see her when she comes out and prances around! She is such a goof and loves everyone to tell her how pretty she looks after a bath.
I hope everything is just perfect at your nest!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! It's 60 and sunny here. Another trick the tourist kind of day!hahaha
The gardeners are here so I've squawked a greeting to them and yelled at the silly humans in the pool! A good days work so far!
Mom had to go to the market but Jennifer is off today so she was here to keep me company! I don't need anything since I have my apples and a nice big bag of organic grapes so I'm set! Mom looked a the cherries but they are 6$ a pound and not even organic! I like the grapes better anyway. She had to get food for Merlin and even though he's a pest, I wouldn't want him to starve! He would drive us all crazy with his howling if there wasn't any food for him! He howls anyway but it's worse when he wants food!
Mom fell over Mandy when she got up this morning. She is just fine but I thought we were all going to play some kind of game since she was on the floor! I climbed down to peek out under the cage cover and asked her if she was okay. Merlin was sitting at the end of the bed howling for breakfast even though it was very early and Mandy was looking a bit worried! I started laughing and so did mom, so Mandy calmed down. Merlin just kept howling! He's only a cat so we have to forgive him for being unconcerned! It was nice to start the day off with a laugh!
We are so happy to hear that your soldier will be coming home soon! We say a prayer for him every single day. I hope when he gets home he stays home for good.
I hope you enjoy your day and get to do some laughing too!

I hope you are having a fun day! It's still cloudy and rainy here but then it wouldn't be a holiday weekend if it wasn't rainy!Hahahahahahaha
Mom is working her regular schedule so we are getting things ready for her to start her work week tonight. I hear that the cages are going to be cleaned too so I'm not too happy about that. My night cage gets put into mom's shower so I don't ever see that happen. I would get to cranky if I had to see that!
Mom and Ian went to see X-Men yesterday and really enjoyed it. Jennifer didn't want to see it so she hung out with me! We watched Project Runway repeats and it was awful! The snacks were good though.
The family went over to a new Mexican restaurant last night for dinner. Mom said is was okay but not worth the money. They don't go out to eat much so when they do they like to go somewhere spectacular!
Any plans for the long weekend? Are the parronts going to go out on their boat? I hope it's just perfect sailing weather up there!
The voting for Sam 212680 to benefit Iowa Parrot Rescue starts at 12am ESt tonight! I know I can count on you for a vote!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! The rain came back here last night. We had this beautiful sunny week and now the rain is back for the weekend!hahahahaha It always happens like that. Mom is working and we don't BBQ so it doesn't really matter to us. Nothing stops up here because of the rain because if it did nothing would ever get done!
The fundraiser for Sam 212680 is this Sunday the 25th. I know most birds are already voting for him but if you know some birds that I don't, perhaps you could ask them to drop off a vote!! Falco, Willie and Peppino's mom and Raffikki's mom are going to match the donations so it is going to be a huge gift for the birds who live at the Iowa Parrot Rescue! I know it's a holiday weekend but I hope every bird can spare a few minutes to vote. It just happens that Memorial Day weekend is the day I came to live with mom! I think that is a great reason to celebrate!
I've been doing my part by ripping up mom's notebook with all her notes in it! She has to write everything down so that she remembers who is having a hatchday, etc. I have been shredding the old stuff so she doesn't get confused with too many lists! It's the least I can do since I am so very good at ripping things up!
I hope you enjoy the day and that it is just perfect!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day!

As most of you already know, I came to live with my mom when her sister was unable to care for me anymore! I have known mom for 30 years and been a part of the family for that long! Mom use to bird sit me so when I needed a new place to live she was the logical choice! That and the fact that she has always loved me so very much!

To celebrate my 6th anniversary of being with my mom, I am holding a fund raiser for Iowa Parrot Rescue. I support this rescue every month and am amazed at the awesome job Mike and Abi do to take care of birds in need of a home. I have many friends who are in forever homes who started out at IPR. I am a lucky bird since I have been with my family for 30 years and will continue to live with them until the end of my life. There are many birds who are not as fortunate as us! They have already adopted out many birds this year but for some reason, no Amazons! Being an Amazon, I want to help out my fellow zons!

On May 25th-next Sunday-every vote that Sam gets will mean a dollar contribution for the Iowa Parrot Rescue! You can help by leaving a vote for Sam that day! I really appreciate every vote that will mean money for the IPR! Tell your friends who may not know me and Thank you in advance!!

I know the BC has been slowing down and many birds have lost interest lately but I hope you will all get out to support Sam and the IPR!

I hope your day is just perfect!

I hope you are all enjoying the day! It's dry here now but the dark clouds are rolling in again. I'm enjoying watching the flags in front of the complex blow in the wind! They have Tulips on them and are very pretty.
We are just doing the usual Saturday morning cooking. There is chili in the crockpot and chicken cooking on the stove. It's going to be chicken enchiladas. Everyone works different schedules around here so mom tries to get some meals done that everyone can just heat and eat when they have the time. I help out by tasting the tortillas and a few beans just to make sure they are good!hehehehehehe
Not much else going on today. Mom has to get her things ready for her workweek and then get some sleep before she has to head out tonight.
I hope you have a fabulous day! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!

I hope all is well at your nest. It's just fine here. We are getting ready for the little niece Maddie who is coming for a visit today. I don't usually like the little humans but Maddie and I get along well. She is rather quiet and I appreciate that! The one's who make a lot of noise and move around too much make me nervous!
I have my cage all neat and tidy! I want to set a good example for the little one! Actually mom wants me to be a good example! I think I should show her how much fun ripping up newspaper can be!

I hope you are having the most wonderful Easter ever! Things got busy around here so I have to keep it short today!
We are cooking a ham but we are not really going to have a sit down dinner since mom and Ian are working. Dad is in Montana somewhere! Everyone will eat when they can!

Mom finally got herself an MP3 player. Her's broke months ago and she just can't stand the "Leisure Suit Larry Lounge" music anymore! She found all the music files and started loading songs on the MP3 but when she looked, the songs were not there! It took my genius mom about half and hour to realize that Jennifer had her MP3 player plugged in also so mom put all that music on Jennifer's MP3 player! Boy is she going to be surprised!hahahahahahaha Mom is such a dork!!

Happy Easter!!

I hope you are having a great day! It's very pretty here! A real spring day!
Mom was off last night and she'll be off again on Friday. She couldn't get two days off in a row this week because there is too much work. It's clearance week plus they added a special weekend ad. The store is having it's Fuschia event this weekend so there will be special sales to go along with it. It's an annual event and everyone looks forward to it. They have geranium and fuschia starts for sale and if you bring your own pot the garden staff will plant them for you. Hanging baskets are a big thing up here so by next week you will be seeing them everywhere.
I have spent the morning trying to keep Merlin away from mom! He had his outside on the balcony time and play with the ribbon time but he is trying to butt into my climb on mom time! I told him he needs to go grab a nap until I'm ready for my apple and then he can jump up on the computer desk again!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's a spectacular day!

I hope you are having a fabulous day! I am having a late start today. Mom gave a friend a ride home this morning and he lives in the middle of nowhere!! Really! The city he lives in is called Kapowsin. There are only about 300 people who live there. Lots of horese and cows and roads that are unpaved! Mom had to drive very slowly because there are tons of holes all along the roads! It's only half an hour away but it's a whole different world out there! I could scream and scream and no one would notice! Cool!hahahahahaha

  Hello Captain~
I hope you had a wonderful day! Happy Last day of winter! Spring will be here tomorrow even if the weather outside doesn't look like it. We had some really nice sun breaks today but some really big downpours also! The downpours seem to happen when mom had to take the dog out or go to the market! She seems to be a rain magnet!hahahaha
Mom was off last night and tonight too. She is usually off on Thursday and Friday nights but the store she works at is having a big sale for Friday and Saturday so mom has to be there on Thursday night to get it set up. On Friday she will be helping with freight since most of the freight crew will be off. They did inventory on Tuesday so the schedules got changed.
Mom got us a lovely white cake with spring sprinkles on it to celebrate the coming of spring! It was yummy and the cat even had a bit of it! He's not a normal cat you know!hehehehehe
Happy spring to you all and I hope it's a wonderful season for us all!

I hope you are having a great day! Spring has sprung up here. We have had a bit of rain but the temps have been near 60 and the cotton wood trees are bright pink and the frogs are delivering me joyous noise every single night! Now normally I don't really like hearing those hundreds of frogs but since they are announcing spring, I will put up with them!
Mom went out to the market for a while and she is going to hit the library soon. New books for Sugar! YAY!!! We will get some dinner done and then I hope we can have more popcorn and watch another movie.
You enjoy your evening! I hope it's just perfect!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. I'm getting some computer time this morning! It's been way to busy around here lately and I just don't like it!
Yesterday we took a break in the morning and watched Catching Fire. I really like it! Lots of action and you know I love action movies!
Today we are getting a bit of cooking done and getting mom ready to start her work week. She is going in an hour early tonight since I have been told we are losing an hour tonight! I really don't see any reason that the time has to change! It seems to be working just fine the way it is!
Mom went to Petco to get my Higgins Sunburst and they are out of it again! They say the warehouse is out of it so there is nothing they can do. She got me some Higgins Safflower Gold and it sort of looks and smells the same to me. There are no sunflower seeds in it but that is okay with me! It's only part of what I eat everyday so as long as she keeps a big supply of apples I will be a happy zon!
Spring is inching ever closer and that is making the frog outside my window go crazy! It started with just a few of them but last night it sounded like there were about a thousand of them out there! As long as they are here to announce spring I suppose I can put up with them!
I do hope you enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug as I waddle off!
Love you ~ Sugar

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! We are having what we in the Northwest call a "Trick the Tourist" kind of day! It's a day where the sky is blue and there are just a few white puffy clouds. Not real warm but you can't tell what the temps are from a picture! The tourist board runs out and takes pictures down at the waterfront to get people to come visit Washington! They are in for a huge surprise when they get here and it's raining for 3 weeks straight!
OH! I love it! So sneaky!hehehehehehe
Mom found a really cool screensaver of an amazon! The background is green and there is a really handsome amazon peaking at me from the right bottom corner! I have named him Wilbur and he is my computer buddy! She had to go get a new screensaver after she reloaded the programs!
The computer is working well and mom found a virus program, downloaded it and is running it every day! I just hope this never happens again!! It sure did take mom a long time to figure it all out but hey! She did it! I must say that I'm impressed!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's an awesome one!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are enjoying the day. Nothing much going on around here. I played with mom this morning and then growled when Merlin decided he wanted some play time too! Dad will be home this weekend but he's been gone 5 weeks so I don't think Merlin is going to forgive him anytime soon! You know how cats are! He figures that mom is the one around to play with him and feed him so he's become a Velcro kitty! At least he has gotten use to being fed with Mandy when mom gets up. The first few weeks he was waking mom up 2 hours early because he figured he needed to eat!
All the Easter stuff is up at mom's store and she enjoyed scanning it all. She said it cheered her up to see such pretty pastel colors and all the cute things they have for Easter. I think spring will be here before we know it!
Hope it's warming up over there! I hope you and Bo are staying warm and cozy too!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's just perfect!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a nice day. My rain stopped and there is sunshine outside my window!!! A bit of a surprise but it is a welcomed one.
I know spring can't be too far off! It's not because of my sunshine, it's because there are Cadbury chocolate eggs on all the check stands at the store mom works at!hahahahahahahaha Yep! Only 2 short months until Easter so spring had got to be close! Right??
We spent yesterday cleaning off the balcony because the building is going to be pressure washed. They do it every year and it is a pain but at least it stays nice and clean out there. They said it had to be done by 8am and since mom doesn't get home from work until 8am we did it yesterday! So far no one has showed up and it might be tomorrow before anyone does but at least we are ready.
It's very noisy when they do it so mom puts the radio on to cover up the noise. I like listening to the radio anyway and it helps a little. I will have to do some squawking anyway because I am the BIRD! Mandy doesn't hear well anymore so I don't know if she will notice or not. If she does, she will try to get to the nearest exit and get out of here!hahahahaha Merlin, being a cat, will just roll over and go back to sleep!
I do hope you are staying warm and cozy! I wonder what is going to happen when all that snow starts to melt?? I hope floods are not in your future! You and Bo stay safe!
Leaving a vote and a big hug too!
Love you ~ Sugar

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! The snow we had last night did not amount to much at all. The grass and the bushes are still covered but I doubt it will last the day. The rain should be back tomorrow so it will feel more like winter in the Northwest.
Mom is off tonight which is a big deal because she rarely takes a Saturday night off! We are going to do some stuff around the house today and I am hoping for popcorn and a movie tonight! Right now we are going to straighten the pantry out because the skin kids put the groceries away and you can not find anything! The stuff for my mash is in there somewhere and mom needs to get it soaking so she can cook it tonight!
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's just perfect!
Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!
love ~ Sugar

My name is Snowflake. I'm running for March BOTM. Please support me and vote for me.
I will be posting daily blogs about the BC Kissing Booth that Ms BB runs. Everyday there will be a different bird and his picture with a short description of what went on.

Today is Dixies KB pit.
We watched lots of 60s movies and TV. We played theme music from old TV shows to.
There was lots of fun food for the 4th of July. And we had bunches of fireworks that were sponsored by the business on BC.
Memories and good times at the BC Kissing Booth. Let the good times roll !!!
Thank you for your votes...
Much love to you.

Love Snowflake. (Ms BB)

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a fantastic day! It's very cold here and we have snow flurries but nothing that is going to stick. It's going to be cold for the next few days but after seeing the East Coast and the Midwest, I can not complain! Mom will be off for 4 days so we'll just hang out in front of the fireplace!
I am sorry I didn't get around much yesterday but the internet went out. Don't know why and it's fine today. Maybe all those Comcast people were out celebrating the Seahawks win!hehehhehehe
I put a picture of Taima in my profile. He's the real Seahawk. Actually he is a Augur hawk because there isn't really a seahawk. He is very beautiful but I don't think I'd want to see him up close and birdsonal!
There is going to be a parade in Seattle tomorrow to celebrate the Seahawks victory. It's the very first time we have ever won the Super Bowl so I know most of the west side of the state is going to be there!
I was sorry to hear about that teacher getting hurt! So your mom is going to be the substitute for a whole month?? That must be hard on you and Bo. I know I don't like my schedule messed up and with your mom being gone all day long, it's gotta mess up your schedule. I bet there are quite a few people who have slipped and been hurt in all this snow! I am grateful that I only have a few flurries!
I hope you enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar
