On a final note, we have arrived home very late in the evening on December 11th. I checked on all the fids and everybirdy sleepily squawked to us. Monday morning I did the food and water routine. Tricky Dick or TD or Tricky D as he is called on BC did not bite me for a change (since he did that just before we left) He gobbled up his food as usual. Everybirdy had time out of their cage after the long week. Doo came up stairs and watched some TV with dad, Petey and me. When I went to return Doo back to his cage that evening, I said my usual goodnights and tucked everybirdy in. The exception was TD, he was on the bottom of his cage cold and gone, departed to Rainbow Bridge to join his fellow conures Rufus, General George Hammond and Oneil. Beautiful and peaceful at 36 years of age. (he is estimated to live only to 20 years old) No much to to say about TD. He was an old crotchity conure who lived an incredible life between Pheonix, AZ where he was hatched as a chick, road on his dad's shoulder on the lawnmower. Retiring to NJ, putting up with the cold and 13 fiblings in his golden years. His every favorite place to perch and hang our was on the blade of ceiling fans. That way he was way above everybirdy else in the flock and was the President! He enjoyed blogging on BC, sitting on my shoulder squawking into me ear in the conure tradition of his mitred frothers. He formed a fraternal relationship with his fister Miranda, sitting on and inside her cage keeping her company or maybe it was the other way around. What an extraordinary life you enjoyed Tricky! Thank you God, for the loan of this bird and we send him back to you with much love and many kisses. 12/12/2013, on this anniversary of my flight to Rainbow Bridge I want to tell everybirdy that everything is wonderful here! All of the angel birdies are all restored to perfect health and we are watching over all of you every day without fail. Thank you for honoring me on this day. Tricky Dick.

  Hi Tricky D,

Congrat's on being BOTD or should I say Angel Bird of the Day. My name is Cheyenne and I'm a Meyer's Parrot. My Mommy really wanted to get a Blue Crowned Conure just like you but then she saw my picture and that was it and I'm so glad, no offense to you handsome Conures. I'm called the Miss Attitude Bird just cause I want ALL of your attention ALL of the time. So what's wrong with that LOL? Hope your enjoy your Special Day with all the other Angel Birds including my Mom's Tiels Taylor, Sydney & Keaton & Budgies Nicky, Sunny & Tia. Here's a vote handsome. Bye for now.

  Hello Angel D
For my BOTM campaign I am going to be using my Star Trek Enterprise shuttlecraft, the Galileo, to take us on far-flung adventures. From the very bottom of Earth’s deepest seas to the far reaches of the Universe.

All of your votes are deeply appreciated. If I don’t thank you every
day its only because there is only so much time in one day.

Dec. 12: Ms BBs BOTM campaign.

All of your votes are deeply appreciated. If I don’t thank you every
day its only because there is only so much time in one day.

OK, every birdie in the shuttle. Ms BB sets the nav ‘putter for K2 (Yes, that’s its name) It is the second-highest mountain on Earth. Once you have been to the highest this is a let down. (Pun intended).

It is located on the border between Baltistan, Pakistan, and Xinjiang, China. With a peak elevation of 8,611-m (28,251 feet), K2 is also the highest point in Pakistan.
K2 is known as the Savage Mountain because of its extreme difficulty of ascent. It is said that this mountain is harder to climb than Mount Everest.
For every four people who have reached the summit, one has died trying. It is mostly climbed from the Pakistani side because it is much more hazardous to reach the summit from the Chinese side.

The first serious attempt to climb K2 was undertaken in 1902 by Oscar Eckenstein, Aleister Crowley, Jules Jacot-Guillarmod, Heinrich Pfannl, Victor Wessely and Guy Knowles. They did not make it to the top.

An Italian expedition finally succeeded in ascending to the summit of K2 via the Abruzzi Spur on 31 July 1954. The expedition was led by Ardito Desio, and the two climbers who reached the summit were Lino Lacedelli and Achille Compagnoni.
