Well, I started out life, in this little funny shaped thing they call an egg. I guess I was a YOKE. After awhile it got so crowded in there, I made my great escape, and came into the world hungry, and making a racket to get noticed. I had 2 hatch mates. As time went on I started growing into a handsome little guy. At 14 weeks, I found a new home, and life was very good. the first Mom and Dad, loved me very much, and we played a lot. The Dad had 2 heart attacks within a short period, and they felt it was time to move into a smaller place, since the 6 acres was just to much for Dad to take of. The apartment they are moving into does not allow any pets, of any kind, but it is well suited for Dad's needs. They knew they had to find me a good home where I would be truly loved, and well taken care of. They placed an ad in the newspaper, and these folks from Lakeland called and asked all about me. They seemed very interested, after hearing why I needed a new place to reside. They drove from Lakeland to Lake Wales, about an hours drive to visit me. The first thing I did was jump on the old guy, and snuggle by his neck, and the the lady picked me up, and I gave her a little beakie kiss. I guess that's all it took. They had a long talk, to learn all about me, and what my likes and dislikes were, and an hour later, I saw them loading my cage in some strange car. Then they came back in with this little bitty cage, and place me in it. Darn it had a small door, and I just managed to get in. Then it was the long drive back to where I was going to have my forever home. My big cage was unloaded from the car, and set up, while I was stuck in the little cage. They opened the door to that little cage, and I made a dash to get out, and I went straight to my new mom's finger. She held me for about ten minutes, and then the one they call pops took me for a tour of the bird/computer room. I was shocked, to see other birds there. A big green Severe Macaw named Squak, and boy did she ever made a racket, and a cute little Green Quaker, they called SCREECH. He made more noise than Squak. I've just been here a few days, but I know for sure I am going to love living with my new mom and pops. Everything has worked out for what is best for me..

Hi! My name is Tweet

I am a White-Bellied Caique from Lakeland, FL.

Caique A Doodle Doo, the Tweetster

5 years old   M

White-Bellied Caique

Banana chips, Almonds, A few kinds of nut's, apples and anything that Squak and Screech get. And they better share the good stuff with me.

On my playstand, or hanging on mom when she get's close enough. Being a general pain in the tailfeather's whenever I can. that's my job, and I do it well.

Like All Birds, I just hate having to be confined in my cage. It's just not fair.

Of course, what I like most, is that they spoil me, and play with me alot. They are so much fun. And I love them.

I squeak like a little mouse. And my latest trick, is to wolf whistle. I can imitate every electronic device in the house; sometimes the folks don't know if it's the microwave or the Tweetowave that's beeping..

  Hey Tweet and Squawk
Happy Monday !!!
Northern Cheyenne Courtship continued...
As I have explained to you before this is not research. The elders in my family and tribe have passed down everything I tell from generation to generation. I tell you how it was told to me. The history books don't even know the real truth of my tribe...How could they ??? They never lived it !!!

Raffi finds a beautiful place in our mountains. He once again smudges the Cedar branch and his knife...
Then he starts to sing beautiful songs to Cydney in hope she will hear them in her dreams...

He thinks of Cydney and starts to carve the Cedar branch. Singing and thinking of Cydney the whole time...
Raffi let's Mah-Hey-Yoh guide his talons as he carves.
When he's finished he see's a beautiful image of Cydney carved into a courting flute.
He puts his courting flute in his medicine bag and heads back home on his pony.

When he gets home Uncle Tall Bull is waiting for Raffi outside of his lodge. He welcomes Raffi back home and say's Raffi you must not ever let anyone see your courting flute.It's for you only !!! Other wise another man can steal Cydney away from you with one song.
You must sit outside of Cydneys lodge when shes alone and play one song to her. After that you must bury your flute in a sacred place where no one can ever find it.And when you go to the next world when you get old you must bury it with you. You will know when the time is coming. Now go get your woman !!!

Raffi waits for Cydneys family to leave the lodge knowing he can play only one song for her so he starts to play his flute for Cydney.
The music is beautiful and it seems like time stood still. When Raffi is finished he puts his flute away and sit's outside of Cydneys lodge waiting for her...

Cydney comes out and looks Raffi in the eyes.She smiles shyly and say's Raffi in my dreams I saw what you did to win me. You risked your life and your love is so strong for me you are a strong mighty warrior with honor...You suffered and prayed and fought for me....Your love is forever and so is mines...
You are the man of my dreams !!!
Cydney ties an eagle feather on Raffi's head...
Raffi let's out a victory cry and helps Cydney get on his pony...
Cydney say's yes Raffi I will marry you !!! I'm so proud to become your wife !!! Raffi and Cydney ride off to tell the tribe they are getting married !!!

This courtship is real and has been practiced by all the happily married elders in my tribe. Did you know that almost all Northern Cheyenne marriages never had to face a breakup or divorce.
Honor your marriage and you will be blessed with a long happy life together...

Thank you for your votes
Love Panther

Tomorrow I will talk to you about Northern Cheyenne weddings and take you where you never had been to before.
There will be two Northern Cheyenne weddings !!!

Come visit me, Jedi luvs Cheyenne forever...Thanks for botd...., Snowflake luvs her Apache..., Tweety luvs Princess... & PANTHER...VOTE FOR ME FOR BOTM !!!.

  Let's go out in a blaze of glory
All good things must end
Like two heroes in a story
Let's go out like we came in
In a blaze of glory

Here we are broken hearted
We thought our love would never end
We fell hard when we got started
We're fallin' out like we fell in

Let's go out in a blaze of glory
All good things must end
Like two heroes in a story
Let's go out like we came in
In a blaze of glory

Let's don't lie and hurt each other
That would be our worst mistake
Once again let's act like lovers
One more time for old time's shake

Let's go out in a blaze of glory
All good things must end
Like two heroes in a story
Let's go out like we came in
In a blaze of glory

Let's go out in a blaze of glory
All good things must end
Like two heroes in a story
Let's go out like we came in
In a blaze of glory

Come visit me, JeTTa.

  I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I'm so tired
I can't sleep
Standin' on the edge of something
Much too deep

It's funny how we feel so much
Cannot say a word
We're screamin' inside
But we can't be heard

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

So afraid to love you
More afraid to lose
Clingin' to a past
That doesn't let me choose

Well, once there was a darkness
A deep and endless night
You gave me everything
You gave me life

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

Remember all the good times
That we had
Let them slip away from us
When things got bad

How clearly I first saw you
Smilin' in the sun
I wanna feel your warmth around me
I wanna be the one

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I will remember you
(I will remember you)
Will you remember me?
(Will you remember me?)
Don't let your life pass you by
(Don't let your life)
Weep not for the memories
(Weep not)

Weep not
Weep not
Weep not for the memories

Weep not for the memories
Weep not for the memories
Weep not for the memories

Come visit me, JeTTa.
