Hi! My name is Annie

I am a Pearl Mutation Cockatiel from Brook Park, OH.

The Queen, Pudge

4 years old   F

Pearl Mutation Cockatiel

Millet, veggies, Rice Chex, and whatever the humans are eating. She will go to great lengths to try to snatch a gulp of coffee!

The top of the bookcase, people's heads, and the chest of whoever is willing to scratch my neck

My cagemates

They give me the utter homage and devotion that a Queen deserves!

She's nosy - has to be a part of every activity. We call her "the Queen" because she truly believes she is the center of the universe!
She won't poop on us. If she's on my shoulder, she will walk down my arm, turn around so her tail's hanging off the edge, and let loose.
She loves water and has to be shooed away from the sink when water's running. Bath day is her favorite day.
She "air surfs" - loves to perch in front of a fan, spread her wings, and bob up and down. (see picture in gallery with wings spread)
.

Will it hurt me? Can I eat it?.

  Hi Annie!
I have missed you soooooooooo much! Scion wraps his wings around Annie and gives her a long beaky kiss! I hope your dad is feeling better. And you're fostering Butterball's babies again? You are so kind and beautiful.
I have had a few seizures during this molting time but i'm doing ok. Mom and Dad take good care of me. It is hot here now and I'm able to enjoy sitting outside on the porch. I still take my daily nap inside the comforter on the bed.
We now have a 10th bunny who is Snowball's girlfriend. She does steal all his food though so he's lost weight and she's gotten to be a butterball!
We also hatched 9 new baby lovebirds who are now flying around the living room in the evenings. I hide out in my house and try to nap becos they are brats!
I hope you will come blog with me more often. How is your mom's master's degree coming along? I miss you so much, especially at the milongas and just day to day! Big hugs, I love you!
Your Scion forever

  Hello Annie~
I hope your are having a great day! I've been having fun playing with mom and snacking of course. She is letting me watch a really cool monster movie called Pacific Rim. It has robots and monsters! Too Cool!
I'm sorry I haven't been around much but the computer is still not working well. We have the files moved and we are just waiting for dad to do the reformatting. He's been busy so there hasn't been any time for him to start doing it yet. I sure am getting anxious about it! It is running very slowly and we can only use Google Chrome to get online. I hope I can convince him to get it done today! After that we have to reload all the programs so that is going to take some time too! Boy! Computers sure are a pain sometimes!
Nothing really exciting going on around here. We've been working on chores around the house during mom's off hours and watching the movies that brother bought after Christmas. I have seen Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness and Man of Steel and now Pacific Rim. It's been a real action-packed weekend around here and I have really enjoyed it! I must admit that the popcorn is pretty good too!!
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's perfect!

  Hi Annie
DAY 11
How are u sweetie? Today, we will start with: SHOCK:
Shock is a critical situation that occurs when the cardiovascular system fails to supply adequate blood to the organs of the body. As a result, low blood pressure develops & the cells in the body do not receive adequate amounts of nutrients & oxygen. Shock may follow any serious insult or trauma to the body, including bleeding, severe infection, dehydration, prolonged diarrhea, vomiting or poisoning. If left untreated, shock frequently results in death. Birds that are in shock will appear weak, rapid shallow breathing, have fluffed-up feathers & head may be turned with eyes partly closed. If u believe that ur bird is in shock, keep her warm, cover her cage/carrier & transport her to ur vet's office immediately. Be sure to call ur vet's office to give them time to prepare for the emergency. Once ur bird arrives, ur vet will immediately examine the bird, get a brief history & begin treatment. This will include administering fluids to hydrate the bird & oxygen to ease difficult breathing, warming the bird, administering "shock specific drugs as needed & closely monitoring the bird. Once ur bird is stable, diagnostic tests will likely be recommended. These can be very important to better assess the extent of the injuries, offer a realistic prognosis & monitor the bird's response to treatment.
COMMON DIAGNOSTIC TESTS
There are a few commonly performed diagnostic tests that can be especially useful in an emergency situation are:
COMPLETE BLOOD COUNT & DIFFERENTIAL (CBC)
An excellent initial screening test for the presence of infection, inflammation, anemia, blood parasites & protein levels.
BLOOD CHEMISTRIES
Evaluation of chemical components in the blood provides important info that helps to formulate an accurate diagnosis, prescribe proper therapy & monitor response to therapy. These tests look for imbalances in certain biochemical functions, which could point to the possibility of organ dysfunction.
RADIOGRAPHS OR "X-RAYS"
The ability to "see" inside the body is one of the most valuable diagnostic tools available. Bone abnormalities, size & appearance of most internal organs, presence of foreign bodies or soft tissue masses, such as tumors,h& much more can be evaluated with X-rays.
GENERAL SUPPORTIVE CARE
Basic medical care from which most sick birds will benefit, regardless of the illness. This term can apply to care administered both at home & in the vet's office. At home, "general supportive care" should include keeping the bird warm, making sure she has easy access to food & water, keeping her quiet & calm & watching for signs of improvement/ deterioration. In the vet's office, "GSC" could include warmth, oxygen therapy, fluid therapy,x"force-feeding" & nebulization therapy (breathing treatment). This care would also include close monitoring by the attending vet & the trained staff.
Tomorrow, we will continue with med emergencies. Have a great day sweetie!

  Hi Annie
How are u sweetie? Several birdies told me that they went to Sky's page & read blog #9, & not to worry about resending it. But if anybirdy does want the blog CONTACT UR VET WITHIN 8 HOURS let me know & I'll redo it & send it to u.
Several birdies commented on my awesome campaign pics! Each & every one of the pics were lovingly made by sweet Momma Deb! I'd like to thank her again for my wonderful pics! She will be the best momma-in-law EVER!
We will now begin discussing medical emergencies/problems & first aid procedures. This info is meant to be guidelines, not to replace veterinary care, but to stabilize ur bird until u can get to ur vet's office.
An important aspect of first aid is PREVENTION. Many serious illnesses can be prevented when whenoowners feed their pet birds balanced diets, keep their pet's cages clean & take their birds to their vets for regular check-ups. Most injuries can be prevented by "bird-proofing" ur home, be careful of other pets around ur bird, keeping nails & wins trimmed, etc.
LOSS OF APPETITE
Birds usually lose their appetite when they are sick or injured. Loss of appetite is not a diagnosis, it is the result of a medical problem & serves as an indication that there is a problem with ur bird. Healthy birds have healthy appetite.
Tomorrow we will start with shock.
Have a good night sweetie!

  Hi Annie
DAy 8
How are u sweetie? Well, the Polar Vortex is finally heading back to the Arctic Circle, where it belongs! The g-kids had a 2 hour delay on Monday & cancellation yesterday & today! There was supposed to be just a 2 hour delay today, but because of these frigid temps, the school buses wouldn't start. They said that at these extreme temps diesel gas turns to gel...but it will warm up enough for them to go back tomorrow...the temp is going up to 33 degrees...it's going to feel like a heat wave! Monday night we had a low of -13 & Tuesday we had a high of -5!
Today we will continue with: WHEN TO CONTACT UR VET.
CONTACT UR VET IMMEDIATELY IF UR BIRD:

HAS SIGNS OF GASTROINTESTINAL, URINARY, OR REPRODUCTIVE DISTRESS INCLUDING:
*Straining continually, but unable to produce feces or urates
*Choking
*Swallowing a foreign body (ex: toy, cage decoration, bell clapper)
*Any condition that makes it difficult to eat or manipulate food (injury to a foot or the beak)
*A prolapse or eversion (being turned outward or inside out) at the vent or bleeding from the vent
*Egg binding: straining & having difficulty producing an egg
*An overdose of medication or suspected poisoning
HAS SIGNS OF GENERAL ILLNESS OR NERVOUS SYSTEM OR MUSCULAR DISEASE INCLUDING:
*Extreme weakness, lethargy or depression, unconsciousness, collapse, or coma
*Seizures (flapping wings while lying in the bottom of the cage)
*A head tilt nystagmus (eyes move rapidly from side to side), staggering, walking in circles, difficulty sitting on a perch, or other problems moving
*Severe or continuous pain
*Sudden inability to bear weight on a leg or use a wing
*Swollen or injured foot due to a leg band problem.
Tomorrow we will finish this with: CONTACT UR VET WITHIN EIGHT HOURS.
Have a great day sweetie, I'll see u tomorrow!

DAY 3
How are u sweetie? I hope everybirdy made it thru the storm ok! We got about 6 inches of snow, but it's the below zero temps that is so miserable!
Today we will discuss first aid priorities (triage) & signs of illness.
In an emergency situation, try to keep calm & work in an orderly process. U should first determine whether the injury/illness is life-threatening. If there are multiple injuries, prioritize ur efforts according to the severity of each injury.
LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES OR ILLNESSES
Severe bleeding or blood flowing freely from a wound must be attended to immediately. Treat such life-threatening injuries/illnesses by administering first aid immediately & then calling the vet.
NON-LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES/ILLNESSES
Injuries or illnesses that are causing distress or pain but are not life-threatening, such as fractures, diarrhea or vomiting, should be treated next. U should be preventing the injury/illness from worsening & preparing the bird for transportation to the vet.
MINOR INJURIES OR ILLNESSES
Injuries such as a superficial abrasion or minor cut come last in the order of priorities for treatment. Carefor the bird at home if u know how to treat the condition. Take the bird to the vet if the injury/illness does not improve or if the condition worsens.
SIGNS OF ILLNESS
*bleeding
*loss of appetite
*feathers fluffed all of the time
*change in droppings
*change in water consumption
*weight loss
*inactivity
*drooping wings
*sleeping all the time
*partially eaten food stuck to bird's face or food has been regurgitated onto cage floor
*labored breathing, with or without tail bobbing
*eyes closed most of the time
*soiled or pasted vent
*self-mutilation
*runny nose or eyes
One of the best ways to detect an emergency situation in ur pet bird is to know what is considered normal for ur pet bird.
RECORD NORMAL APPEARANCE & BEHAVIOR
Be aware of how much food he/she eats & how much water he/she drinks on a regular basis. Know how many times he/she eliminates in a day & what a normal dropping looks like for ur bird. Pay attentionto his/her activity level & his/her sleep times. When u are attuned to your bird's normal behavior, you'll notice anything abnormal or unusual right away. Let ur avian vet know about any changes in ur pet's routine as soon as u notice, so follow-up care can take place promptly.
Tomorrow we will discuss specific injuries/illnesses & how to properly treat them.
THANK U SO MUCH FOR UR SUPPORT!

  Hi Annie
DAY 2
How are u sweetie? We are praying that everybirdy makes it thru the upcoming storm(s). We will be having below zero temps & a few inches of snow, but nothing like our friends in the far north-eastern states!
Today's topic is: WHAT CONSTITUTES AN EMERGENCY? A medical emergency is a serious and/or life-threatening injury or disease that requires immediate care. In some cases such as bleeding, first aid at home may be the best 1st course of action. Here are some guidelines on when to call ur avian vet.
CALL IMMEDIATELY WHEN UR BIRD HAS/IS:
*doesn't stop bleeding
*blood in droppings or in regurgitated food
*extensive burns
*collapsed or can't maintain balance
*has been poisoned
*puncture wound or deep cut
*cannot breathe
*straining to pass droppings or an egg
CALL SAME DAY WHEN BIRD HAS/IS:
*lost her/his appetite
*an eye injury
*swallowed a foreign object
*low body temp
*mutilating his/her skin
*loose droppings
*develops a sudden swelling on body
CALL NEXT DAY WHEN UR BIRD:
*is excessively thirsty
*seems to have itchy skin
Bird owners are frequently unsure if a problem is truly an emergency. The best thing to do is to follow ur instincts & use good common sense. If there is any doubt in your mind regarding the severity of ur bird's condition, it's best to treat it as an emergency.
Tomorrow's topic will be triage (first aid priorities). See u tomorrow sweetie!

DAY 1
How are u sweetie? I'm excited to begin my campaign on birdie first aid! First, I would like to give a big THANK YOU to Momma Deb, my darling Casey's mom, for making all the awesome campaign pics for me! I couldn't have done it without her!
I will start with a basic first aid kit, which is helpful to have if an emergency occurs. Mom keeps mine in a 19 at storage container w/ lid.
*IMPORTANT PHONE #s-ur vet, emergency clinic & poison control ctr.
*PAPER & PEN to make notes on bird's condition.
*TOWELS for catching & restraining ur bird
*STYPTIC POWDER/STICK (beak & nails only) or CORNSTARCH (can be used on skin)
*SCISSORS, NAIL CLIPPERS & NAIL FILE
*NEEDLE-NOSED PLIERS-to pull broken blood feathers
*PEROXIDE or other disinfectant solution
*EYE IRRIGATION-such as saline or contact wetting solution
*BASIC BANDAGE MATERIAL-such as gauze square & rolls, MASKING TAPE-does NOT stick to feathers
*PEDIALYTE or GATORADE
*EYE DROPPER
*SYRINGES to irrigate wounds or feed sick birds
*PENLIGHT
*COTTON SWABS to apply meds & clean wounds
*BETADINE SOAP-which is anti-bacterial, for foot injuries
*HEATING PAD or HEAT LAMP-home use
*HEAT PACK to keep bird warm during transport; wrap pack in towel - DO NOT apply directly to bird, burns could result.
Tomorrow we will discuss what constitutes an emergency & triage/first aid priorities.
THANK U SO MUCH FOR UR SUPPORT!
See u tomorrow sweetie!

  Hello Annie~
I hope your day was just wonderful! I had a lot of fun supervising chores around here! I think maybe I had more fun than mom did but she is happy that I am happy!

I have been checking out the other animal channel sites and it looks likes the Cat channel is getting changed on January 1st instead of March 1st. Cori and Boo Boo gave me a heads up about this. There was a blog on the small animal channel so they know. but there doesn't seem to be any blogs on the Horse or Dog channel. I don't know if they are going to be left alone or if they just don't know yet.

I am so sad we are going to lose all of this but I hope we will all stay in touch, either with Facebook or email. I am grateful for every single minute I have had visiting with friends, playing baseball and all the other fun things we do here! To think! This all came into my life because mom and I were looking for pictures of birds for me to look at!!

Enjoy your evening! Sleep tight and sweet dreams!

I need to apologize for not getting many notes out lately. You are very important to me and I don't want you to think I have forgotten about you or got bored with BC. That will never happen!
Mom is very busy at work because of the holidays and having split days off when you work night is like having no time off at all. She did manage to get over and see Catching Fire yesterday and loved it! I was in the play cage with a new toy and I must say that I loved it!hehehehehehe
Please know that you are in my thoughts everyday and I always count myself blessed to have such awesome friends!
We are getting some cooking and laundry done today since it is going to be a very busy week until mom gets another night off on Friday!

  Hi Annie
Today is Thursday. Its foggy and cool here. Last week the parront went to her appointment with the back specialist. He ordered an EMG test to check the nerves in her cervical area. he wants to ensure there are no nerves damages before telling mom her options. They have to wait for worker's comp to approve it before scheduling the appointment. He did not say anything about the bulging disc in her lower back. That's my parront current situation.

Meanwhile she keeps working night shift. Next week is Thanksgiving Day! After it xmas seasons will start.

This is all for this week

Have a greyt Thursday

  Hi ya Annie~
I hope you are having a great day! I'm doing just fine. It's cold and windy and wet but mom put the fireplace on and I'm toasty warm!
Not much going on around here except laundry. Mom is working tonight but is scheduled off Sunday night and Monday night! It's all crazy. She doesn't know if that is going to be okay or not since it's clearance week and the lady she works with will have to do it. Mom is going to check with her tonight to see if she is okay with it. There is not a lot but mom never puts her work on to someone else unless they are okay with it.
She is scheduled the entire week of Thanksgiving! It looks like the skin brother will be working Thanksgiving too! I am a bit concerned about the dinner because I look forward to that! Mom says we will figure it all out and will probably have a Thanksgiving lunch instead. As long as I get the corn bread I will be happy!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's just wonderful! I hope you and the flock and the family are all doing great!

  Hi Sweet Annie
I MISS YOU TOO! And i think of you every day! I'm very lonely at the milongas. Lizzy the dragon and i do sit and share recipes though to pass the time.
Have you laid any eggs? There seem to be a lot of eggs around here - mostly lovebirds but Squeaky got a happy hut and boy did it ever make her happy! She laid 3 eggs! But she has no mate so mom took them away after a couple of weeks. Dad steals the lovebird eggs since there are 23 of those like clowns flying around here, mostly in the aviary!
How is your mom's masters classes going? Bet she has a lot of work plus her job and the family and all you guys! Hehehe!
Here is a big beaky kiss and a very loooong hug for you. I loved the pumpkin bread treats you brought me. Here is a cup of fresh berries for you! I love you, Annie!

  Hello Annie~
I hope you had a really great day. Mom worked last night so we got a few things done this morning and then she took a nap. It's about dinner time so she'll be going to make dinner soon. I just had a nice bowl of veggies so I'm set.
We have been watching a DVD set from the library called The Celts. I'm not finding it too interesting since nothing is blowing up!

We didn't have anyone come trick or treat last night. It's been that way for years. I think it's because we live in this huge complex and there are only a few houses across the street. The mall and the fairgounds have big parties so I think most of the kids go there. One of mom's friends had 200 kids!!

Now that Halloween is over at mom's store, Christmas is in full swing. The trees are out and decorated and the rest of the stuff was put out last night. Mom hasn't has a chance to check everything out yet but she did say they had some nice dinnerware. There is a whole section of Rudolf décor!

I want to thank everybird for the honor given the Calendar Page today. I appreciate is so very much and I am happy to be able to provide this small service to my friends!
Enjoy the evening!

  Hi Annie
Sorry we did not do our weekly blogging yesterday but the parront was busy. The MRI results came showing that the parront has a bulging disc (L5 S1) that is the very last one disc on her lower back. She was referred to a back specialist, she has an appointment on Nov 14. She has to remain in limited duty working at nite for know.

She is upset because the lady that does scheduling told her that if she remains too long in limited duty she may lose the shift that she bid which is 8:30AM-1:30PM with Sunday and Monday off. And would have to take any shift available at the moment she return to full duty. They bid shifts every year in October. The new bid started Oct 20, but mommy had to stay at nite. She does not want to lose her shift, she has to pray the Lord to help her.

She is expecting to get paid this week the 15 hours that were furlough from his last check in addition to her regular hours.
Her Smart phone is a Samsung Galaxy exhibit. She is still struggling with it trying to figure out the apps, and features. Her carrier is Metro PCS.

Thank you again to every birdie that wished me a happy hatchday even if it was a belated one. There is no need of apologies. I understand parronts are sometimes busy and we depend on them to use the puter hee,, The carrot cake was delicious and was gone fast. We wont be able to up load the picture yet, be patient, I will let you all know when they become available.

The weather here is already getting cold.

  Hello Annie~
I hope you had a great day! Mine is going pretty good! Mom went to Petco to get me some Higgens Sunburst parrot food! I love that stuff! Jenny Lynn sent me some and I just loved it so now I have my very own bag.
While she was there she saw four conures. Two of them were Green cheeks, one was a Turquoise cheek and one was a Jenday. The Jenday did "Monster Bird" at mom! hhahahaha Monster bird is when I spread my tail out, pin my eyes and stomp back and forth while growling! I didn't know little conures could have attitude like me! That is pretty cool. The other three conures didn't do it! They were very sweet! You know which one mom would love to have! Yep!

  Hello Annie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Happy October. This is our most favorite month!
We are still having storms blow in and out. It's blowing in at the moment! It was really bad on Sunday night and there was a tornado that touched down on our road about 5 miles from here. The funny thing is, we did not know about it! It didn't do any damage really since it touched down in an industrial park. It was all over the news so we had phone calls from family asking if we were okay!hahahahaha We didn't even know it happened!! We heard all of the wind and there were lots of thunder booms all night long but we had no idea it had gotten so bad. It would have been cool to actually see a tornado since they rarely happen up here but mom says it's better that is was in a place where no one was around. I guess she's right!
Today we are going to get some veggies cooked for Mandy and then I don't know! I'm going to get my apples soon and go to play in my play cage for a while!
I hope your day is just wonderful! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!
Love you ~ Sugar

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's wet here but mom tells me that is not abnormal for Autumn in the Northwest!
I just had some oatmeal and a bit of toast and now I'm going to take some time to get some notes out there! Mom is on vacation this week so I'll have a bit more time. I haven't been getting around as much as I would like but that's all mom's fault! She had some stuff to get done that she tells me could not be put off! I really do think that what I want to do should be more important!hehehehehehe
I am just going to supervise some chores today and probably play with some toys.
I hope you have a wonderful day and get to do lots of fun stuff!

  Hello Annie~
I hope you are having a great day. The gardeners are here so I am keeping an eye on them! I yell at them every once in a while but the machines they use are so loud that they can't hear me! I have to make sure they do a good job you know!
Since yesterday was Talk like a Pirate day, mom and I watched Muppets Treasure Island! It was great and I laughed all the way through it! I just love Miss Piggy. I don't think she would do well in the pig races though.
Today we are going to get some chores done around the house. I have a new toy in my play cage so I'll be working on that while I supervise!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect!

  Hi Annie
Long time we don't keep in touch. The parront now works temporarily from 11:30PM to 4:30AM. She is off Tue and Wed .She will be in that shift until her light duty status gets lifted. It will be easier for us to blog Wednesdays for now.

On Sunday she got for the very first time a smart phone. She is still trying to figure out the applications and the touch screen. She is used to the old type of phones that you push buttons. She got for $50.00 a Samsung galaxy exhibit. Regular price was $129.00. She will be paying $60.00 monthly for 4G unlimited with Metro PCS. Its good for us because we don't have home internet. This is all for today

Have a greyt one
be a good birdie
see you next week

  Hello Annie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!
I had intended to get a note out yesterday but we had a power failure and then I found out that my friend Punkin had flown to the Rainbow Bridge. It turned out to be a lousy day and I didn't get a note out!
I didn't want you to think I'd forgotten you because that will never happen! It just got a bit crazy around here!
Today we are dealing with ants yet again! They sprayed outside a few months ago and that took care of the problem for a while but I guess there is a new group who is very interested in our kitchen! We live on the second floor so I'm guessing the lady downstairs didn't have anything they liked!heheheheheheh
When mom got home they were in the silverware drawer! ICK! She has cleaned it all out and has the gel stuff on the counter that is suppose to make them all go away. I have my doubts because she has used it before and they stay away for a while and then come back. We have to be careful with things on the counter because the cat is very nosy and wants to see if there is anything good up there for him! He may get locked in the bedroom today. He sleeps most of the day so I don't think he will even notice he's locked up!
I am sitting here in my play cage with my apple and almond and a new toy too! I'll supervise the rest of the kitchen cleaning from here and if I have any good ideas, I'll be sure to give mom a shout out!
I hope your day is just wonderful! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!

How are you? I hope all is well at your house and that the family and flock are all doing well!
Nothing exciting going on around here. It's been a nice summer and I had lots of fun just hanging out with mom and enjoying some sunshine. We've had rain for the last few day and lots of thunderbooms.
Enjoy your evening and please give that little caique a big hello from me! I really miss chatting with him!

  Hello Annie~
I hope everything is going well! We had the carpet cleaned this morning so I got stuck in the bedroom with the cat and the dog! Mom kept me company but I was still upset because my schedule was messed up! My play cage was pushed into the bedroom so it was way too crowded in there! I was in my night cage and mom had to crawl over the bed to visit with me! The carpet looks nice though!
Mom is done with jury duty! YAY! She was on 4 panels and every single one ended with a plea deal! She never even got to see the inside of a courtroom! She's good for another 2 years now!!
Enjoy the day and I hope all is well!

  Hello Annie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I'm just having fun hanging out with mom. I missed her so much yesterday while she was at jury duty!
She didn't have to go today but she has to call in every evening for the next 2 weeks.

Yesterday they started with an orientation. It was pretty boring and was just a review of what was in the booklet they gave everyone. There was a presentation by the sheriffs department showing them all kinds of weapons that people had tried to sneak in. It was crazy. There was even a lipstick that was really a knife!

They showed everyone a taser and told them that in Washington State they are legal to have but in the city of Tacoma they are not! They also told everyone that gun permits were no longer issued in the courthouse and that you had to go across the street to the building with the blue awning to get a permit. Mom is still trying to figure out why she needed to know where to get a gun permit! Is jury duty that dangerous?

She got picked for a panel before orientation was done which was good because it was getting pretty silly. They were telling them that if they only had one badge on, they were single. If they got picked for a panel they had to add a second badge and they were engaged. If they got picked for the jury, they were married! Who came up with this stuff????

She then spent the next 3 hours sitting in the hallway across from the domestic violence unit reading a book. She was re-reading Mockingjay because the courthouse made her think of the Hunger Games! Okay! She's weird!

Just before noon, they started flashing the light in the hallway which meant they wanted the jurors back in the jury room! They told them that the defendant decided not to go ahead with the trial and that they could all leave!

Mom called dad to come pick her up and he told her to walk up to the McDonalds and get something to eat while she was waiting for him. Mom grabbed a diet coke and was reading her book while she waited. Then two guys in the parking lot got into a screaming match so mom decided to go check out an old apartment building up the street. Mom likes old buildings! It was very cool even with someone sleeping on the front lawn. It's probably pretty pricey even though it's old because it's on the waterfront! Lots of screeching seagulls too so that is an added bonus!

I hope I didn't bore you going on and on!!

  Hello Annie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I got a special visitor this morning! The little niece Maddie came by to visit! She'll be a year old next month! She is so cute! She is walking now and was very excited to see me! She was just fascinated with the turtles which doesn't make any sense at all! Mom told me it is because she has never seen turtles before!
Merlin came out and rubbed up against her. In cat talk, that means he likes her! She petted him and he seemed to think he was the star of the show! Mandy sort of scared her but that's because she is so big. Maddie has only seen a Chihuahua before and Mandy is way bigger than that. Maddie's mom Terra held Maddie and petted Mandy and then Maddie decided that Mandy was okay. I had to laugh because out of all of us, Mandy is the sweetest!
They have finally finished resurfacing the parking lot outside my door. It was suppose to take them 8 hours and it took 2 days! Mom and Mandy walked over to Safeway this morning to bring the car home! He has had to spend 2 nights over at the shopping center! It was very nice of them to allow everyone to park over there. They have 2 more buildings to go and they are suppose to be done on Monday and Tuesday. With them taking 2 days for us and the buildings in the back part of the complex, that should mean they will be here all week! It does look very nice now!
I hope you enjoy the day and get to do lots of fun stuff! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!

Did you have a nice 4th?? It was nice here. It stayed cloudy most of the day but it made the sparkles in the sky look very cool! I don't mind the booms at all and since the dog doesn't hear very well anymore, she didn't get upset at all! We had corn on the cob so that was the most special part of the day! I just love holidays where there is special food!
I do hope you enjoy the day and get to do lots of fun things!

  Hello Annie~
I hope your day is going great!! I'm doing a c/p today because mom is not only wearing a wrist brace on her right hand but now has a very large bandage there too!

Everyone went out yesterday, so it was just me, mom and the herd here!

Mom got me out of my play cage and then some bird~~I'm not naming names here~~clamped her beak down on mom's middle finger and bit down really hard. There was a cat~you all know who he is!~who was trying to crawl up mom's leg because dad wasn't here to play with him! The bird~~who is not being named~~got scared and bit mom.

Mom was trying to get the bird calmed down, shoo Merlin down the hall, all the while trying not to get blood on the carpet. She got the bird calmed down, got Merlin down the hall, but did not manage to keep blood off the carpet.

Mom thought her finger might be broken but she can bend it a bit so it's just bruised up and has a very large gash that looks surprisingly like a beak on it! We stood at the sink for a really long time before she could get the bleeding stopped and get a bandage on it.
The bird got settled in, the cat got settled in and the carpet got cleaned up. The poor dog didn't know what to think of all of this and went to her blanket to watch from there! Needless to say, typing is taking a very long time and I wanted to be sure to come by and wish you a happy day, leave a vote and a hug too!
I know that the bird~who is not being named~is very sorry it all happened!!

Enjoy your day!

  Hello Annie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I'm doing just fine even tho I wasn't picked up from my night cage until mom got back from the market. She went early but the pharmacy doesn't open until 9am so she had to time it so when she was done getting food, she could stop by and pick up dad's meds!
Mom has been wearing the brace for one day now and it's totally pitiful! She wasn't the most graceful person to start with but this brace is just making it all the more obvious! Her mom use to call her "Amazing Grace" and Grace is not her middle name!hehehehehehehe
Typing is a whole new adventure and I won't get near it so she has to take it off before she gets me out of the cage. She doesn't really notice any difference yet but it's only been one day and she has had to take it off to do dishes and to play with me! She'll get use to it eventually but I don't know if I will!
Enjoy the day! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!

  Hello Annie~
I hope all is well with you, the flock and the family!! Since I was in the neighborhood visiting Butterball I thought I would stop by and say hello!
It's very noisy at my house today! The gardeners are here and we are having the annual fire inspection also! They are setting all the fire alarms off in each of the buildings~10 of them~so it's very noisy!! They are going to come in my house soon and check out all the sprinklers~9 of them~,smoke alarms~6 of them~and the one and only carbon monixide monitor! They do it once a year to make sure everything is working well! It's nice to know we will be safe! There are sprinklers in all the stairways and fire extinghusers too!!
When they get to our building, mom has to take me, Mandy, and Merlin into her bathroom while they are here. Mandy doesn't like the sound of the alarms and gets a bit scared. I will be just fine and Merlin is a cat and doesn't seem to be upset by anything except when his dinner is late!!
You all take care and I hope you have a lovely weekend!!

  Hi Annie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. I've got the gardeners here to watch. They are outside my window mowing the lawns! Pretty soon Mandy will be woofing to go out just because she likes to smell the fresh cut grass! Mom takes her for a walk everyday and Mandy has decided she likes to walk down to the Starbucks. Do you suppose it's the scones they sell? I always share my scones with her so maybe she figured she just go down there and get us some! I like the way she thinks!!

Mom already went to the market before I even got up! The store is open 24 hours a day. It's less crowded early in the mornings but mom has to put up with freight on the floor and the floor scrubber being used. Since she works nights at a store, she is use to that stuff.
She got me some pecans so I'm looking forward to my snack! I'll be having apples and pecans today! Yum!

I'll be supervising the chores later on and letting mom know how she should do stuff! We all know our parronts would be lost without us!!

Enjoy your day and I hope it's perfect! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!!

I hope all is well at your house! I'm doing just fine today. I am on my t-stand doing a little wiggle thing that I do and chatting up a storm. I'm very happy this morning! Yesterday I was being a bit quiet and mom actually got worried that something was wrong with me!! I got loud later so she knew I was okay!Hahahahahaha
She always tells me that I get way too loud and then when I'm quiet she starts to worry!! There is no pleasing the woman!
I hope everything is going great at your house!

  Hi Annie!
I'm so happy you like your ring! I wasn't sure what type of stone you'd like so I took a guess on emeralds. I think you'd look nice in rubies also!
I know your typist has been super busy. I'm so happy that I heard from you though - it made my day! Think I'll do some squawks of happiness as I sit out here on my porch. Mom rescued a baby lovebird out of the aviary yesterday - it had fallen from its' nest and the adults had pecked it's little head and back. It is older than when she rescued Kiwi who was only 3 weeks old - this one is about 2 months old and has feathers. It has taken to handfeeding quickly.
And Picabo escaped his cage one (dad left the food door open) when my parronts were at the vet and attacked little lovebird Lima. He tore her beak entirely off (the top) and it was unable to be reattached! She has now adjusted well and feeds herself and is tenderly cared for by her mate Limon. Tomorrow mom gets a baby dove that fell from a very high nest at a friends' house. More handfeeding!
I have missed you so much! I'm so glad you had fun on our private island trip. And I just love how the lilacs smell. We don't have them here so it's a treat!
The fritatta is delicious. I brought you a chicken empanada since it's empanada day!
Let's sit outside and smell the lilacs and watch the butterflies....
I love you!
