Rico and Paulie were hand fed babies who went to live with a young girl who wanted a companion bird. However, they bonded with each other instead of her. Disappointed, she decided to get a cockatiel, and her mother said the budgies had to go. A mutual friend thought we would give them a good home, so we took them in..

Hi! My name is Rico & Paulie - the Ninja Budgies

I am a Budgerigar from Brook Park, OH.

The Ninja Budgies, because we are always finding their feathers in the oddest places. We suspect they sneak out of their cage at night and do ninja things, leaving only a stray feather as evidence. And Rico is sometimes called Stalker Budgie because he will follow Annie the 'tiel EVERYWHERE.

5 years old   M

Budgerigar

Millet

The top of the bookcase, the 'tiels playgym (it's much more fun than their own) and in their swing.

Being held, spray baths, and having their picture taken.

They don't love anything about us except the food and the fact we pretty much let them do their own thing!

Nonstop chirping. We pretend that they love Queen music and are actually singing Queen songs in budgie language. Their daily squabbles are over who gets to be Freddie..

"I'm Freddie!" "No, I'M Freddie!" "No, I am!" ad infinitum.

  Hi Rico and Paulie
Please know that if you ever need time to give to homework or papers that need to be done for school you can always ask us to step in for you,we are more than happy to give you and your sweet hard working Mom a break to do the things she needs to keep up with!You can always count on us and we will always be here for you,we do hope you know that!
We are all so worried about the Feeder!Mom can only imagine just what your poor Mom is going through now,she already has her plate full with the Edible One and she herself is going through enough right now,the Feeder is added to our prayers and Mom will put his name in our special intentions book at church for a week of prayers for healing and peace from pain!He's way too young to be having to deal with something like that!We are so praying for him that it will be treatable and he won't have to suffer with ankylosing spondylitis for his whole life.Its just not right,please tell him he is in all our thoughts and prayers constantly and Mom will always put his name in the special intentions book at church each week like she does for the Edible One and The Cuddler too!How is the Edible One doing these days,we always think of him also!
We can only imagine how hard it must be for the Bird Whisperer to get used to a real school,she's out of her comfort zone with so many kids there surrounding her and traveling to classes all over the building isn't much fun in a crowd of kids either!We will love to go see her violin recital video on FaceBook,poor thing,it really must've been so nerve wracking on her to be performing in front of so many people with all their eyes and ears on her!I don't think that we could've handled it as well as she did!Please give her a big hug from all of us here and tell her how proud we are of her for going through with it,someday she's going to be a big star playing in a famous Orchestra and we will be there listening to all her recordings!
Oh how sad that poor little Donovan is gone to Rainbow Bridge,we can only know the hurt in the Cuddler's heart now and the emptiness she must be feeling from his dying like that!Poor baby,Mom can so understand how painful that must be to no longer see him there in his cage.Mom so worries about Dixie now as his toes are so twisted and very painful he can barely stand these days and she had to take him to the vet two weeks ago because he had a tumor on his white eye ring near his eye,all the hot packs weren't helping him so the vet cut the bump out and so far as we know she said it was a plug or mass due to his sinuses,he's been on Enrofloxacin every 12 hours and Ofloxacin eye drops three times a day.Mom took him to his follow up visit yesterday morning and his eye is healing nicely but he has to keep taking the Enrofloxacin and Ofloxacin til its gone.Dixie was in such pain the past few days that Mom didn't want to stress him out any further so she gave him today and yesterday off from taking his meds,she'll start him up again tomorrow morning,he ju

Oh how we have really missed you all soo much!But the way Mom has been going around here she sure can understand what your poor Mom is going through,sometimes Mom often wonders just how your sweet Momma can get through a day without dropping in exhaustion at the end of the day,she is so incredible!How is everyone there?Our prayers are continuous for the Edible One,and for your wonderful Momma!Mom puts their names in the special intentions book every week for prayers of healing and peace and comfort from pain!
Mom had another long busy day today and she thought she would have an easy lay back Sunday!Skin sis wound up staying overnight last night and we had our three fiblings with us too!Mom got up this morning and got us all fed and cleaned up and then Nana and skin bro came down and the whole family went to IHOP for breakfast,skin sis was taking Mom and Nana and dad out,Mom and dad for their anniversary,Nana for GrandParents day.They had a long wait before they could get in at IHOP but they finally did and after they ate they came back here where Mom and skin sis put in two loads of laundry and got it all hung outside,Nana and skin bro left to go home and then skin bro came back an hour later to come and take the metal closet that was in the Mud Room for Mom and that created another mess,all the stuff on top of it was all over the dining room floor,dining table,bench etc.Dad helped skin bro get it into his truck and he took off with that,then Mom and skin sis went out to the veggie garden and they both dug up Mom's tomato plants and put them in pots so they could be on the deck before the weather turned cold,there are tomatoes on them still coming.Then Mom got us all out on the deck for some sun and soaking showers and as skin sis stayed and watched us,Mom went inside and tried to clean up the mess that was left from the closet.There were lots of wire hangers which skin sis took with her and other kinds of hangers which Mom brought upstairs to the closet.Then Mom took most of the other stuff that was left and put it in the spare room off the Mud Room for the time being,then she made dad some sandwiches for his lunch tomorrow and got the coffee ready and then she and skin sis went out back to take the laundry in,but it was mostly still wet so Mom put it all on hangers and now has it hanging all over the place upstairs waiting to dry!The sun sure went down fast so we never got to go back outside when Mom was done.Skin sis finally took all her things and my three fiblings with her and Mom finally has a chance to sit down and do our blogs!Its nearly 8:00pm and she's just started!Mom is hoping that she can sit and relax for the rest of the night!At least we got to enjoy the sunshine and the outdoors for a little while today!Our temperatures were 71 degrees here today which was really pleasant,and the lows will be 59.We had some down pouring rain last night but Mom never heard it as she had the a/c on it was so humid and hot!

We woke up to yet another dark,dismal,dreary day here with rain soaking everything!We are hoping to see the sunshine tomorrow after two full days of darkness and rain!I sure hope you have some cooler weather so your sweet Mom can do some things outside,its miserable when its too hot to move outside!
OOOHHH!Those guinea pigs seem like they just eat to manufacture more poop to clean up after!You are so right about us birds being more interactive and we can really be entertaining for everyone around us!
We will always love you and be there for you,and our friendship will never fade,we love you more than you can know!Mom will continue to put the amazing Cuddler's name and the Edible One's name in the special intentions book at church every week!Mom just can't thank you for giving her the website for the meds,you just don't know how much that means to Mom!We are the ones who are so very blessed to have you all in our lives!Its just so upsetting that the distance separates us!Because of you all our lives have been wrought with sunshine and love!You mean the world to us all and always will be!

That story about the little cockatiel brought tears to my eyes!Joni is such a very blessed little tiel to have the breeder there taking such good care of her and never giving up on her ever!Oh what a wonderful person she is and how lucky to have her in your life!Mom and I are more than blessed to have you and your wonderful flock and family in our lives,we love you all more than you can ever imagine!How did we ever get so lucky!Mom and I just can't thank you for the website for the medicine and I would love the dosage information also!I will email you with my questions also!You just don't know how much this means to me and my Mom!We have no idea how to thank you for everything!What a miracle,what a wonderful loving being the breeder is to do the things she does to help those babies and those birds!It feels so good to have someone on my Mom's side in matters like this!
I just never thought of those guinea pigs not liking to exercise!But I think you are so right,they'd rather eat than do any moving!Not like us who are always climbing or flying or working to get our meals or snacks!Please know just how much we here all love you more than you can imagine!You are our world and always will be!Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses,Loving you always and forever,a very grateful Dixie and Kallie and Mom too!

  Hey Ninjas !
I'm glad everything is settling down in the new house ! So mom is working with the brains ? She's been doing that for years with you guys ! ! And sis is getting ready for school ? I bet she's getting nervous - a brand new experience . . . Mom doesn't go back until Sept. - the day after Labor Day is a faculty meeting and then the kids come on Wednesday - where did summer go ?

We've been in September the last few days ! In the 50's at night (mom loves to sleep with the windows open !) and only mid 70's at night :) Open windows so I can holler at all the wild birds and squirrels and children ! !

Don't be a stranger ! love Cookie

  Hi Guys
They told mom it's a chronic condition, so they do the shots forever, I guess. Mom doesn't take us out unless it's 70 or above. We all have travel cages to go outdoors in, though.
The guy collecting parking fees at the museum said to mom we are lucky this year. We are getting 2 Septembers! It's been another cool, cloudy day here. There were thunderstorms predicted, but so far we haven't seen any.
Mom's tour this morning was a group of day care kids ranging from about 7 to 12 years. They wanted animals, so mom started in Bird Hall, of course. She also did a ton of mammals on the second floor, both North American and African. Then she took the kids out on the balcony to see the giant pterosaur, Quetzlcoatlus, with its 40 foot wing span. There was a reason, though. When that guy stood on the ground he was as tall as a giraffe! They had just seen the giraffe, so mom wanted to show off the pterosaur. It was a good move, because the museum had moved the herps to that balcony! So while they were out there, mom did frogs, salamanders, and snakes, too.
We are hoping for better weather tomorrow, even though mom won't have a chance at going to the pool. Her eye surgeon's appointment is in the afternoon.
I hope you are seeing warm weather, sunshine, and lots of cuddles, just for you! Hugs, Willie

How is the little guinea pig? Hope you are having fun watching her. It has been a little cooler here and we had some rain this week. A few nights ago we had bad thunderstorms during the night. But the weather has been nice the last few days and cooler.

  Hi, Rico & Paulie
We do fly over to NTT most weeks but don't always blog when we don't know any, but know it and can't think of the title. Yeah, should blog anyway, heehee.

That's good the flock and family is all settled in the home and that new job and schooling is also on track. Probably still never seems like enough time in the day.

Okay, about the baby in our gallery. That is the first grand for the parronts. Yup, skinsis had a baby last month. Her name is Jade. She's sleeping in the cradle dad made when skinsis was a baby so it is getting 2nd generation use!

Hah! If you had asked me, I could have warned you of the dangers of talking on the phone with a Sennie around. My mom knows better after experiencing the same behavior Sammi displayed. I HATE the phone! Mom is not allowed to use it while I am in the room.

Hey, is anybirdy else missing their avatar and the ones in their aviary? I got nothing! Very annoying!

Well! My mom made a deep dish blueberry pie this morning before she went to the gym. What's the problem, you ask? The morning is MY time! Yes, she did take me out for my sunbath before she made the pie, and yes she did sit in my room with me while it was baking. Just because it is too hot in the afternoons to turn on the oven, I had to give up at least 30 minutes of MY mommy time while she put that pie together. And I only like the crust. She could have just baked a crust for me in much less time than that!

At least after she got home from the gym (and showered), she spent the next hour with me. However I was still mad at her from this morning, so I just ignored her. She sat and read, and I played with my toys. To be honest I was glad she was in there, but I would never let her know. Even if she did fix one of my favorite toys and reattach the bell. I do love those bells.

  Hi Guys
When they first talked to mom, she thought it would only be 3 shots. They clarified that at her last visit. They told her it's a chronic condition so she needs shots forever!
It's cool here today, don't expect the temps to go much above 70. If that's the case, mom will probably scrub the porch railings, since she finally found the Simple Green she was looking for. It's a good cleaner for the outdoor stuff. Of course, if it gets warmer, that plan will die in favor of the pool. It's open for such a limited time, mom likes to take advantage of every day she can go. Labor day is coming too soon! Nothing much else going on; Mom has a tour coming up tomorrow at the museum, and Thursday is the big eye appointment. Gene will be going back to Germany on Saturday, so she'll probably go visit him on Friday. Other than that, the week is a slow one, but we're never bored, and neither is mom. Hope you are having a great day and getting lots of sunshine and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hey ninjas !
So when does school start there ? Sounds like all the humans are busy . . . not always a bad thing ! Gives you time to explore and find interesting things to see and do !

Besides going to fast, summer is great ! The weather is just like in Camelot ! All the rains are at night - and so far . . . no heat wave ! ! Not a single 90+ day in July :) Everything is growing really well - no maters yet, but dad says by the end of the week !

Last week the church had its Italian Festival - aka the kitchen vacation ! har har har - the parronts went every night - just to eat - a couple nights mom even went alone and brought dinner home ! Then tonight, her first night back in the kitchen ? She had dad bbq chicken - still on kitchen vacation ! ! LOL

Well, you two be good and say hello to the rest of the flock and to mom :) love Cookie

Kallie sure did shave years off my Mom's life!She couldn't stop shaking and it was she could do not to scream that Kallie was on the loose!Now she keeps both of us in a cage on the deck,she finally found a dog leash that had a much bigger clip that Kallie couldn't possibly undo or take off,so she thinks!
That seems to be a long long time for The Cuddler to be working so hard,it will be such a greyt feeling to have finally achieved the bachelor's and the master's and we hope that she can get some rest in between times,and we so hope that she has a nice long summer to catch up and relax in!Its been a real long winter for her with everything she's had to do,the kids,school,work and her school work too!That's sure a lot of stress on her too!You just don't know how good it is to be talking to you again,we have really missed you sooo much!
You've got to tell me all about how the Bird Fair went!I'll bet the breeder sells all of her baby tiels!They are so precious and she has the best babies ever!And with the Cuddler there with her and BW she should really do well along with Sammi the sennie as the mascot for their booth!
I can't thank you for asking the breeder where she gets her meds,and the dosage guides will be soo helpful to me too!You are so incredible and you just don't know how much we all love you soo much!Nana sends you all her love too!

  Hi Rico and Paulie
So you have a Sennie flockmate now? Where is his (or her) page? Where are the pics? And what do you mean Sennie have quirks? (I think my dad would use a stronger word than quirks actually.)

The milonga sure was a lot of fun, although I still say the ladies in bikinis (you know who you are!!) took serious advantage of distracting us poor guys in the volleyball game. Still not sure who won, and I don't really care. What fun! The band sounded greyt as usual, Ms BB and her liquid refreshments were delicious and Lizzie's buffet....well, let's just say nobirdy went home hungry.

If you come to my page and look at the first two pics in my gallery you will see Gloria the car in all her gleaming glory (why do you think Mom named her Gloria). That's right; the new USB cable arrived yesterday and the pics are finally downloaded on my page. I don't mind sharing space with her at all, as long as she doesn't drive me to the groomers. We are going to have a long chat very soon.

Had a nice sunbath this morning, and we didn't get out till 9:30!! There were actually a few clouds out, so the weather was very slightly cooler. Just in the upper 80s today, which is an improvement. It still doesn't cool off much at night, and Mom has to leave the fan going in my room with my cover open about 6". Which means I wake up as soon as the sun comes up. Mom usually gets up around then anyway, but now I make sure she does!

Oh, and today I like peaches! Mom bought a couple more when she and Dad went to the grocery store yesterday, since they had some more locally grown ones. This time I decided they were good, which is fortunate since Mom said the grapes were so awful she didn't get me any.

Good to hear from you! Mom has an appointment with the surgeon this Thursday, and hopes to get a date for the cataract removal. The retinal people say the macular degeneration is under control, so she can go ahead with the surgery. She needs to get another shot in September, though.
It was another fun milonga last night. It was great to see everybirdie there! Mom signed off because of all the thunder and lightning, but we all stayed til the fireworks were done, then went home in Ipo's shuttle. Thanks to Kiddo, Taz, Lizzie, and Sam for another great party!
Mom spent yesterday afternoon at the pool, it turned out to be a gorgeous day. Last night the thunderstorms rolled in right around time for the milonga and continued til about 2AM. Mom was kept awake by Daisy, who is scared of the noise. She was wearing her thundershirt, but she was still pacing and whining a bit. Today it's gray, cloudy, and looks like it will rain again. It might be a shopping day or just a stay at home and clean the porch day. I hope you are having a fun day of sunshine and summer weather, and that you can get out to play awhile. Hugs, Willie

We can't thank you enough to have won another JukeBox!We are always so proud to display them in our galleries!We are having so much fun just playing NTT each week and I think our Mom would go into withdrawal if she didn't get to go with us!We are trying to find ways for every birdie else to check it out as they just don't know how much fun they are missing out on!
It sure must be awesome to be living in a new house and to be able to see deer from your own backyard!Is the Cuddler done with school altogether or does she have more semesters to finish?We are only so thrilled that she is getting to finally enjoy the summer and getting to sit in the sunshine!How wonderful to have a spot right by the bay window so Pepper and Donovan can watch all the comings and goings outside!
Oh how wonderful that the breeder saved little Donovan,Mom so agrees with you that she believes the breeder does know what she is talking about and does know more than the vets do,we are so grateful to her for saving sweet little Donovan's life!Mom goes to her avian medical manual when ever she thinks that we are having a problem and she's usually right about knowing what the problem is,the only thing is she can't get us the meds we need!Just look at what my vet told my Mom about me,that I only had 3 months at best and here it is nearly two years later!Mom took me off all the aggressive meds the vet gave me for my gout and I'm on an aspirin regimen for my pain,my toes are all twisted and I can't perch on a round perch anymore so I have a flat platform perch and I love it!Please tell the breeder we congratulate her on her first albino and pied babies!That is no easy task to accomplish as my Mom used to breed budgies for their color mutations,and studying the chromosome factors and genetics was very deep reading!Please give her our love too for being there for Donovan!
Mom has been so busy for the last several weeks trying to get rid of all the clutter in our house and skin sis has been having to come over and take all her stuff out,Mom has been running to the donation centers and dump and recycling places each week with a full carload of skin sis's things!Dad just spent the week painting the trim on our house purple and fixing Nana's screen door slider,and he put up her new birdfeeder for her,while Mom was helping Nana in her back yard getting rid of picker bushes and trying to help clean up her yard!The summer is going so fast here lately and we can't believe that August will be here next week!Mom has been getting us all outside for some sunshine and lots of soaking showers,I got free from my leash a few weeks back while Mom,Dad and skin bro were on the lawn eating BBQ.we were on the deck me and my baby fister Candida in our cage!Kallie flew to Mom about 30 feet down on the lawn,Mom thought it was a big bug coming at her from the side of her vision,she ducked and Kallie flew to dad's head,but he had a baseball hat on so he slipped off and tried for skin bro who had a baseba

When does school start ? This will be a new experience for the whisperer huh ?

And we're sure glad mom is doing well too - that was some stressful time - having to move right after having her eye surgery !

Summer is flying by much too quickly here :( Mom goes back to school on Sept. 2. Of course she'll probably spend the week before in the classroom setting up -

Hot and sticky but it is July. We've been lucky - all our thunderboomers and rain have been at night ! Haven't missed a day of sunshine . . . and the food has been great ! Me and mom love all the summer fruits and vegetables :) Dad says though - if it's green, no good ! Silly man !

Be good and give mom my love ! Cookie

  Hey fellows !
So how is everything ? Poor mom with all the work of unpacking . . . when we had the kitchen remodeled a couple years ago, mom was overwhelmed ! I can't imagine what she'd be like having to deal with a whole house ! !

I've been getting pretty spoiled with her home for the summer - to the point where I squawk if she leaves my sight sometimes ! ! And she's been leaving too often ! I don't understand why errands can't be taken care of after I go to bed at night !

Have a great day :) love you - Cookie

  Hi Paulie & Rico,
Just read your blog and we are so happy to have won another jukebox this week! Thank you for letting me know. It is just so much fun playing "Name That Tune."
We look forward to playing each week. If we don't blog one week, it is because we don't know any of the songs.

Thanks again. Have a great week!! Leaving you a vote!

  Hi Rico and Paulie
We are sooo eggcited to have won again this week!Mom and us have been trying to figure out a way to get everybirdie to NTT in droves every week!It's so much fun and they are all missing out on it!Mom is doing the same thing for skin bro trying to help him move from Nana's house to a nice condo with a childhood school friend right down the street from Nana's!She was out there yesterday lifting heavy dressers and a 5ft tall very heavy shelf!It was hot and sweaty yesterday and Mom is sore all over today with lots of black and blues!That moving is such a pain in the tail feathers!Mom is hoping this is the last time that skin bro moves!The poor Cuddler,having all that going on at once and then trying to study at the same time!She must be totally egghasted by the end of the day and all that work to catch up on for school too!Congratulations on the new job for the Cuddler!Oh how awesome that she is working days now and no more nights or weekends,she sure can use that time for herself!How lucky they are to have the Cuddler working with them in radiology!Nana went to the eye dr yesterday and only got to see the nurse to take another test,hopefully when she gets to see the dr next month they will adjust her glasses,they're way too strong for her and she's having a hard time with them!Mom has been so busy lately and has hardly been home what with helping skin bro move,going out with Nana on errands,or going to Zumba with skin sis on Wednesday's and skin sis comes over on Sunday's to do laundry and spend time with Mom,sometimes baking or going for walks(with us)on the good days!Two days after the Parronts came home from vacation,Aunt Tanya and Uncle Steve came to spend the week here and they were going out with them,they had a timeshare a few minutes from Nana's house!All the good days that Mom's been home we get to sit out on the deck with her and get a nice shower!How sweet to have that new baby parrotlet and now that is such a fitting name,Donovan,yellow?Mellow Yellow?LOL!Oh poor Pepper not liking anyone eggcept the Cuddler,but then who wouldn't just love the Cuddler,I don't blame him at all for that!Sammi sounds so sweet and loving and how wonderful that the Cuddler took her home with her,Sammi found herself the best place ever in the world to live in a beautiful caring house!We sure don't blame her for not wanting to be a breeder bird!Its supposed to be 87 here tomorrow,today was a dark,dismal,dreary day looking like rain all day!Just barely 73 which is certainly didn't feel like with the winds blowing and making it feel so cold!I sure hope that air conditioner works,one just can't live without it in such heat!We're wishing you a greyt time in your new house,it really sounds wonderful with all the windows that let the sunshine come in and you can't beat all the room that it offers!Mom only wishes that our room was bigger so she could arrange it better for us!Moving is such a pain and is so time consuming and as you move into one house,the old one has to

  Hi Rico & Paulie
Yes, I will be back to play NTT again soon. I added the avatar to my aviary to remind me! And I can't wait to meet your new Sennie flock mate. My heart belongs to SweetPepper, but there are some single Sennies on the BC who would probably like to make her acquaintance. Do you know Boomer?

  Hi Rico & Paulie & Butterball
I was so thrilled to hear that the parronts have given up on the blinds and let Butterball be Butterball! I can't say the same for around here. Mom gives me a bit of time out of the cage and usually I go right to get into something, so she's been locking me back up. She won't play the mischief game with me! No fun at all! Stop by again when you get a chance.

Hugs,

Pepper

  Hi Rico & Paulie,
Thanks so much for stopping by to say congratulations for BOTD. Actually, it was the castle page that won. But I am in the castle and we had up the same profile pic so many birdies think that I was the one that won. I had a cookout the day before at the castle and it got votes.

I really do appreciate you stopping by and it is so good to hear from you. I hope you will stop by more often. Looking forward to hearing from you again soon.

Hope you had a good holiday weekend. Left a vote for you.

  Hi Guys
I'm really glad to hear that everyone's eyes are doing better. Mom thinks they just didn't give the lidocaine enough time to work.
I hope you had a nice Memorial Day, maybe a cookout or a park visit? We had mom from about 7:30 on, so we finally got out of lockdown and got some cuddles.
Today mom had a tour at the museum with 4th grade kids, her favorite all time age. The topic was PA natural history, so there was a lot to see in the hour. They explored the herps cases, botany hall, and several dioramas in North American wildlife before finishing with PA mammals. The kids were interested and had both questions and answers, mom's favorite kind of group.
After the museum she ran a couple of errands. She is trying to get an Ott light fixed, but she can't get the cord out. She left it at a store where they might be able to do something. She also stopped at Michael's to buy mounts for the coasters Maddy painted for her. She wanted to drill holes and string them in a row on the wall, but it's difficult to drill slate, apparently. The people she talked to all said it could fracture, unless she wanted to invest in a water drill. So she ended up buying standing mounts and put them up on the bay windowsill.
I hope you are having a fun day of sun and warm weather. It's supposed to rain here, but it's just super humid right now. Mom might be forced to turn on the AC if it stays this way. Hugs, Willie

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Season's Greetings, Everybirdie!, PEPPINO, please vote me BOTM for the new year, Divo & Falco, Merry Christmas!.

  Hi, Rico & Paulie
Thanks so much for the update on the flock and family. Know that moving is gonna be tough for everyone and birdies, but also know it'll be nice to have more room and close to the BW's school.

We do try to fly over and view each week's lyrics, but this week only really know one. Really do miss blogging with Valentine, but know how busy it is with kids in school, work and how much bigger the flock is now than when you first got on BC. No additions to our flock but the family will be bigger in a couple months when our skinsis has her baby - first grand for the parronts!

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Rico and Paulie
Oh how I've missed you something awful!I'm so glad to be back and out of a week of constant jail!Have I missed you soooo soooo much! My Parronts and Nana and skin sis finally came home tonight!It was a nightmare last Friday when they left as it took them all night to get to NH!They got stuck in the Boston traffic and crawled all the way from Boston to NH and then they crawled all the way from the NH line all the way up to their timeshare going only 10-20mph!And on top of it all it was pouring rain and very dark out and dad missed their exit to go to their place!Mom called ahead to tell them in the office that they would be late and when they finally got there they couldn't locate the guy that had the keys,so they had to wait for him to come up from closing the pool.By the time they got to their condo it was close to midnight!Saturday it was cool but the sun came out and it was in the 70's and Mom and the Family went to Littleton NH a small town nearby where they are staying and then on Sunday they went to North Conway which was a day trip to the outlet stores there but everything is changed again and most of the places they liked going to were gone,they came home and skin bro had to leave to come home for work.Monday they went to Lincoln another small town nearby and walked around and went to the stores there then they came home and went into the hot tub for a while,Tuesday they went to Plymouth and the Tenney Mountains and Meredith which was another day trip to eat at a turkey restaurant and then did more shopping and Mom bought us all some pellets and more water bottles that she couldn't get around here,Nana got our cousin Trixie II a new table top play gym.The quilting store that Mom and Nana liked to go to in Lincoln was gone,the little 90 plus lady who ran it sold it out last year and now the building is empty and the other quilting store that they liked to go to is now the pet store they used to go to in Littleton so that one is gone.Mom got some material in Plymouth that she liked for her quilting projects.Wednesday they all went to have lunch out as usual and then went back to see their friend Suzy who owns a jewelery store there with her husband Bill and Suzy always has fresh baked cookies for anyone who comes in and either hot tea or iced tea if the weather is hot,you can sit on her leather sofas and relax and eat and enjoy your drink too!Thursday they all stayed at the condo and packed to go home and it was pouring rain when Mom and Dad wanted to go out to the car with all the luggage so they had to wait til it slowed down!It was so foggy out that you couldn't see the Mountains at all!As they left this morning by 7am the fog was so thick and the clouds were hanging right on top of the mountains!While they were there looking out their windows they got to see a large pheasant in the pond and there were some ducks last night swimming in the pond in the pouring rain!When they were coming off the mountain this morning on their way home the

It will be on the castle page #239094 at approximately 3:00 EST but you can come anytime during the day or mom can drop you off. Feel free to bring games to play or any sporting equipment for a game of ball. Just a time of food, fun, and fellowship with our BC friends.
