My first parrot, an alexander parakeet we had for 11 years...past away. So, we met with a breeder in Lolo, MT. She had a few baby amazons, so we chose him. My husband got up every 3 hours during the night to hand-feed, which is why Tobie is so gentle.. Awards

  Thank you Tobie and Torie
Part 14....
This is the most moisture we've ever had that was constant...and it's HOT! Mom comes out every now and then to make sure we're all doing well. AW MOM!! *pant, pant* We like it out here *pant, pant* She says we can go out again tomorrow.
Well, while we wait to be allowed outside again I'll try to bring you up on why we're in with a non bird person. Oh sure they have an iguana...we scare her to death and she runs into skin sis' bedroom. hehehe Don't ya just love it?
Skin sis and her hubby have been trying to get mom and dad to move to NC for several years. When dad decided to retire early due to his health, he said he wanted to go east since it's cheaper than Nv!! So East we came and we've had to move in with skin sis and the grands. They scare us a lot but they don't really seem to try to scare us...they just watch us so close it makes us nervous. You know they got both big and little chickens here? Yep, mom says the little ones are banties but they're still the size of Sophie. They don't come up on the porch so we don't worry about them getting us.
There are lots and lots of birds around here and we get to talk to all our wild cousins.
Oh boy, Sophie is warming's getting time to go to bed. OOPS! Kiwi is the first to sound off...There goes Oatie! hahaha Sidney says that Jay, skin sis' hubby, is all wide-eyed! WAY TO GO SOPHIE! hahahahaha Jay's nearly covering his ears. AW DAD! MOM! *sigh* Mom says that all the parrots should TRY to quiet down. Jay's a bit overwhelmed at the noise. Don't know why cause his kids are more noisy all the time. Oh well, he'll get used to it.
Thanks for voting. HUGS to you all--Punkin

Come visit me, Shaggy--2010-2013, Ipo, Sidney ~~ALWAYS IN MY HEART~~6/1996-2/2013, Oatie Odette *Thank you for the honor 11/19/15, Sophie O'Too, Pimer--Thanks you all, Jules, Punkin *Thank You for the Honor* & Makana *I am honored as BOTD 10-17-14* Thank You.

  Hi Tobie
Punkin here to ask if you could please vote for me this month so I can become...I think....the first finch to make it to the honor of BOTM. I'm also telling of our move FROM Nv TO NC. All the stories are on my frother Shaggy's page as's story is... I added some photos of our travel
Dad was planning on taking pics of each state but it didn't work out because of the pace they set. And some states were entered at night.
Part 12.....Dad says that our travels are nearly over!!So mom keeps checking the tom-tom to check the route...Dad NEVER set it he's using his computer for the route. So he's asking mom what road should he take and all. Hey that's NOT the road....the road is back there! DAD! Can't you read? MOM! YOU BLIND????!!! Wow did we see lots of pretty country all cause they got all switched around. hehehe
Dad was trying to save money by avoiding toll roads and so we got lost a few times. What lovely country. All green and all. We missed most rains too which was lovely. So FINALLY we see the WELCOME TO NC sign. Not long now. Raleigh is only a hundred or so miles. Boy is it ever taking a long time getting to Raleigh....HEY DAD! THERE'S THE ROAD TO RALEIGH! Oh, we gotta take a different turn? Thata girl, mom! Call skin sis and find out the RIGHT road....OH THIS IS THE RIGHT ROAD. Sorry dad. This trail is Old Sorrell Rd? Pretty isn't it? THERE IT IS!! HEY LOOK HOW PRETTY TREES EVERYWHERE! GREEN EVERYWHERE! We're stopped! Mom is getting ALL us birds out. Oh this IS wonderful air! no smog here for sure. HI all our wild cousins!
Hey mom's getting out all our cages and putting them together. YES mom is putting together ONLY THE MOST IMPORTANT CAGES. Oh brother, can you believe we're in with a person who's not ANY experience with birds..okay they had a keet once but he couldn't take the noise. Wait'll Sophie starts calling!! heheheehe. Mom got all the cages built and us birds in them. ALL THIS ROOM! THANK YOU MOM!
Thus we landed in the Raleigh, NC area....tomorrow you get to hear about other parts of our new life......
Thank you so much for voting. HUGS and KISSES to all--Punkin
