Awhile after losing my beloved Bailey, my husband found a bird on the internet. He asked if I liked it. I said yes, but I'm not ready. He said you will never be ready so let's go get the bird. We drove 945 round trip miles in the middle of October in the rain to Ohio. We found "him" (they thought it was a boy) in a small cage. The wings were severely cut, nails in bad shape, and tail shredded and broken and very thin. They got the bird at 10 weeks and had "him" a year. "He" never had a name, and they didn't handle the bird much. But they did teach him to step up and say "What are you doing"! They said, we are asking a good price because we don't want the bird. Well, the bird came home with us, an eight hour drive. After our vet saw the bird, it's a girl and she has a respiratory infection. She wasn't properly cared for so, she will always be small for a YCM. Named after a song we heard on the way home - David Bowie's China Girl, please welcome ...our little CHYNA girl.

  Hi, Chyna
Having a grocery trip take close to an hour driving time is too long. Though imagine would ensure they try not to forget anything on the list as too far to return for one item.

Think the other cities had their displays over concrete or maybe real grass that has some moisture to fight off any sparks. In our area they have an artificial lawn to deal with that uses a lot more water to keep moist so that was the reason to cancel. Agree, people are just stoopid sometimes not thinking how dangerous and powerful those fireworks can be and losing fingers and getting burned, etc, etc.

Hope you get those temps of 80 and have some real summer.

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

  Hi Chyna,
After the fireworks and spooky stories have been told every birdie sleeps with one eye open just in case. :)

The next morning everyone wakes up to the smell of blueberry pancakes and raspberry waffles as dad has been cooking early and the aroma is just tasty. :)

As they wake up one by one makes their way to the food tent where they see the pancakes and waffles and fresh fruit medley mom has prepared.

Fresh papaya, pineapple, apples, and grapes just to mention a few.

There's also orange juice, guava, lilikoi and fruit punch and bottled water too.

Everyone digs in and makes their plates of a great breakfast.

After breakfast it's another sunny day at the beach till its time for everyone to head home.

Mom packs everyone a goodie bag of Mac nuts and pineapple cake.

What a treat! :)

Thank you all for joining us on this great holiday weekend. :)

Pookie, Laka, Angel Sallykins gives their guests a big hug and kiss as they home.

Mom gives them a kiss on their heads and says we love you, see you later !

mom planned to spend the day weeding and felt i would be safe in my cage on the porch since she was gong to be right near me in the yard. as she opened the front door with me cupped in her hand a big deer was standing there. it had meticulously eaten all the flowers off of every one of moms flowers including the plants in containers. when it saw mom come out the front door it ran off and didn't come bcd. why should it. all the flowers had already been eaten. Cori was mad she didn't get to go outside too. we could hear her screaming inside the house

The chipmunks sound like nice company to have.We still have our little chippie coming every day and our squirrel who mom has come quite found of.Now we have a occasional cardinal come hoping up on the patio for a peanut.
Has gotten even more humid here and my mom has the start of another bad headache. It started this afternoon and has been getting worse and worse. When she got home from work she closed everything up and turned on the air.I bet its going to be a early night. Have a good night.

  Heya, Miss Chyna!
Mold? Oh dear heavens! How in the heck did that happen? And what is the dealer gonna do about it? That sounds like it was there for some time, in order to spread like that. And I don't blame your Dad for keeping your Mom and you clear of it. That could be very dangerous with both of your respiratory issues. I would want a different vehicle. Let us know what they are gonna do, okay?

Thanks for the good wishes on the interview. Mom looked at the jobs online today, and there are not a whole bunch new, so it is getting leaner and leaner. She is concerned with the Greek crisis and the downturn on the markets. She has not been impacted that much, but still, every penny lost is a penny lost. She is so glad she got all that stuff taken care of, and should be able to ride things out (toes crossed!).

We are humid here. And supposed to get near 88 tomorrow. And then get cooler and be in the upper 60's. We don't mind that. Air advisory tonight, too.

Wing hugs coming your way!

Hi Pretty Chyna,
I'm so glad that you're all better. Are Mom and Dad interested in getting a condo or a house? Do they have any specific area in Port Charlotte picked out? I'm sure you are going to love the sunshine and warm weather.

This was a pretty relaxing day. We had lots of lovely sunshine, but not hot, just nice and warm. Momma and Daddy went to church and it was a really great service with lots of wonderful patriotic songs like "The Battle Hymn of the Republic", "America" and "I'm Proud to Be an American". It was great! Then later after they got home Daddy took a nap while Momma went to visit a friend who was in a nursing facility. We birdies just hung out on the porch all day watching the geese and swans on the lake. I was pretty silly tonight when it was time to go to bed. I usually want to go right to bed when it’s time, but tonight I just wanted to keep giving Momma kisses and ring my bells! So she let me stay up an extra 15 minutes and play with her. I hope you had a lovely day, too.
Lots of Love and Hugs from Finnegan

  Hi Chyna
Oh yea the last few days sure has kept us busy LOL. Oh I break the same button on all the jungle talk toys so it must be a weak button.
I can’t tell time but I sure know when my light is soon going off and its bed time. If mom doesn’t move fast enough I start to complain so she notices its my bed time and I am ready for bed. Last night I was all covered up for the night and then heard lots of boomers but didn’t say anything and kept quiet but it was interfering with my beauty sleep. Then silly mom got the idea of uncovering me to show me the pretty fireworks out the window. I wasn’t about to step up or come out so I didn’t get to see them but I heard the noise and think that was enough. I need all the beauty sleep I can get LOL. “Laughter is an instant vacation” Left a vote for you my friend. Your kissing cousin, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day being 79,the lows will be 63. Its 73 right now at 6:34pm.Mom and dad got up early and left for church and then when they came back we were all screaming for them as they left us with our curtains closed and not fed.Mom fed us opened our curtains and cleaned out our cages,while we were eating she stripped the bed and did all the laundry and got everything hung out on the line.As she was walking out back to hang the clothes out,skin sis came over.After Mom got the laundry out,she went to the freezers and pulled out some hamburgers,hot dogs,pork steaks,steak and Italian sausages for the grill.She made a salad with blueberries,grapes,tomatoes and lettuce.Dad worked on getting the grill out and ready and then skin bro called Mom and wanted to know when the BBQ would be,so she told him around 2:00pm.She got the meat in a marinade and all the rolls and relishes,ketchup,mustard etc on the tray and then went and made dad sandwiches for the week for work,got his coffee maker ready to go and Instant breakfast set up.Then she put us all in our deck cages and got us all out on the deck to get some sunshine and showers,it was a really nice hot day here for a change.Got up to 81.While Mom was waiting for the grill to get ready to put the food on skin sis painted Mom's nails for her,she hasn't had painted nails in years.Nana was supposed to come but she wasn't feeling well so she called to tell Mom she was staying home.Skin bro came shortly after as Mom was starting to grill everything and he brought a key lime pie with him for dessert.After everyone was done eating,Mom cleared everything up,skin sis helped with the dishes and then Mom served the key lime pie and some of that flag cake skin bro had brought for her birthday.Mom cleaned up the dishes and put all the left overs away that skin sis didn't take home with her and skin sis helped bring in the condiments and put them away while Mom was washing dishes etc.Then the skin sibs and Mom sat for a while on the deck with us until skin sis left at around 4:00pm,Mom stayed out with skin bro until he left an hour later.When skin bro left,Mom took us all inside to have one more snack while she finished with the clean up and then she went out back and brought all the laundry in,folded it and put it all away,then she made up the bed and took a much needed shower.Mom is so tired tonight.
Oh how awful to have mold and wet happening in your new car!I sure do hope they fix it for you or give you another new car!Thats bad to have mold!
It was so good you finally got to go outside on the patio and have a cook-out!Don't you just love eating with the wild birds and animals that come around you?
I loved the ending on the movie,it was a fun movie!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for sweet Chyna!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hey Chyna
Hmmmmm...I sent you a blog yesterday and it looks like it flew off into Cyber Space !!!Sorry if you didn't get it...

Sugar finishes her first story...
Tweety and Cookie are excited about the story and cheer Sugar on.
Hulk and Peppi ask Sugar can you tell us another story ??? BooBoo and Cori give Sugar a gift and she accepts...

There was a beautiful girl who was blessed with the gift of making beautiful quill work. She was also blessed spiritually having dreams and visions...One morning she got up and told her mother that she had a dream of having four brothers who are waiting for her...She made beautiful War Shirts for each one of them and decorated the war shirts with quills...

Quill work woman packed the War shirts and her belongings and gave her mother a kiss. She said I'm going to find my four brothers.
Off she walked into the snow. She walked for a hundred
She found a big lodge in the snow and went inside. Not being able to find her brothers. She unpacked the War shirts and waited...
Not long after a young warrior who was 8 years old his name is Peppi came in the lodge. He was happy to see her and said sister I have been waiting for you. I called you in your dreams...Quill work woman gave him his war shirt and it fit him perfect. He then told her he is a spiritual leader and carries the sacred bow and arrow...
A while later her other three brothers came in and asked Peppi who is this ??? Peppi said this our sister I called upon...
Quill work woman gave her other three brothers Hulk, Tweety and Cookie their war shirts. They fit each brother perfect.

Quill work woman and her brothers were so happy and she cooked for them and took good care of them. The brothers always liked to joke around and Hulk said I thought all big sisters that could cook are fat and ugly !!! Tweety and Cookie said our big sister is fine !!!

One day the four brothers went out to hunt for food while Quill work woman stayed home and cleaned up their lodge...
Suddenly she heard a loud sound of thunder and the ground was shaking. A buffalo stuck his head in her lodge and said Quill work woman our leader is in love with you and wants to marry you and become part of our buffalo nation !!! Quill work woman said no I am happy here with my brothers. The buffalo ran off to tell his leader.

Later that night the four brothers brought back food to prepare.
They heard the earth rumbling and then the leader of the buffalo nation was calling to them...

Story to be continued tomorrow.
Can you guess what happens next ???

Thank you for your votes

  Hi Chyna
I will tell Panther to make sure he blogs you. The story was about the love between the moon and coyote.

Well, I didn't get a sunbath this morning, because it was too cloudy when Mom went to the gym. And when she got home again it was too hot. Now yesterday I made it clear I was ready to go out for my sunbath at 7:30PM, and my mom informed me there wasn't any sun. Can that be right? Does the sun actually disappear?

Anyway Mom went to the gym, and this is the first day of that new class UJAM which replaced Mom's beloved zumba. In her opinion it is a rip off of zumba, but not as good. She did promise the fitness director she would try it at least two or three times before judging, so she will do that. However she definitely wants zumba back, and they can just put UJAM before or after it. Mom thinks that is reasonable, but I am thinking if she really decides she doesn't like UJAM maybe she will stay home on Sundays. I would like that.

Today is Dad's birthday, and Mom wanted to take him out to dinner since their favorite pizza place closed down. He won't go. He really doesn't like restaurants all that much, and he thinks birthdays are no big deal. So she is going to take him to Subway, which works for me because I will get to share my mom's sandwich. Maybe Dad is good for something after all.

How about Panther's BOTM campaign? It sure is eggciting and interesting. I can't wait to see who makes it on his council of elders.

  Hello Chyna~
I hope you are having a great day! I hope your 4th was tons of fun! Ian told mom the fireworks went on here until midnight. At mom's work it went on until 4am! Ian told mom he went to check on me a few times and I fluttered! That means he woke me up!! It was nice of him to check up on me.
I am sorry I didn't get many notes out yesterday! Mom drove Jennifer down to her dads house. They decided to go to Olympia first because Half Price Books was having a half off sale. Ian said that made them Quarter Price Books!hahahahaha Anyway, you don't really want the Bad Mom in a bookstore because she will spend way too much time looking at the books while her adorable Sugar is home waiting for her! Merlin was locked up in the bedroom and I bet the Bad Mom forgot about that! The Bad Mom was gone for 3 hours! A trip down to Lacey (where Jennifer's dad lives) should only take 1 hour and 10 minutes! The Bad Mom bought 9 books and a reusable shopping bag for $4.17! Great bargain but the Bad Mom should have been home in 1 hour and 10 minutes!
Now mom tells me there is a Half Price Books in Tacoma and she wants to go check that store out! Tacoma is only 15 minutes away but after this fiasco I am not sure I can trust her to come right back!
It is still a billion degrees here and today it's suppose to be a billion and one! I think I have had enough summer now thank you! There are no fans or A/C left in any store around here! Guess everyone should have believed the Weather Channel when they said this was going to happen! Glad the Bad Mom did and got us extra fans! I'm staying cool!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's perfect!

The skins ate indoors here, too many squitoes. And west Nile has been found in our county.
Mom is still 'bummed'. She walked 2 miles each morning last week, then Thursday had knee trouble and didn't even try getting to mass. She wants to do a car trip soon! It will mean lots of walking. She'll call her surgeon tomorrow to see if he has any advice.

I hope you had a safe and fun Independence Day. Mom's daughter had a fine cookout with ribs, chicken, and kielbassa, along with salads and desserts. Mom's deviled eggs went over well.
Today is a sunny and warm day, but with low humidity so far, at least. Looks like the perfect pool day. Mom will probably nap there, since there were (illegal) firecrackers going off here well after midnight last night. Hope you have a wonderful summer day full of love and scritches. Hugs, Falco

It's Alex.
The 4th of July event that dad worked with the police Dept. was awesome! Even though dad could not feel his feet when he got home at almost 11pm. Mom got home a few minutes after dad. She had a good time at her brother's house, too. She brought home a "Care Package" of food for dad.
Today will be the same as yesterday. Partly cloudy, with a high of 80 and a low of 61. Not much is going to get done today. Dad's too sore.
Hope your day was fun.

  Hi, Chyna
We're sure that for the most part things will be much closer to get to so don't have to travel over an hour for the good stores.

Still dry here. At least our temps went back down to the 80s and should drop further later in the week. We hope to see the 70s again. So wonderful you had a rain free 4th. Lots of fireworks noise here even though the display in our area was cancelled. Two neighboring cities had theres going so that must account for it being so loud.

How fun to have the chipmunks join the feast.

  I'm so happy you got outside yesterday !
I hope you had an enjoyable 4th of July - our day started out drizzly - it never really rained except for a few sprinkles - just misty and overcast . . . mom and dad weren't sure if they'd go to WestPoint or not, but then around 4:00 the sun came out ! ! ! It was a perfect evening - the band finished the concert with 1812 Overture and fireworks ! I was home watching "YANKEE DOODLE" on tv . . . (mom was in the show GEORGE M when she was in high school . . . )

Today they're heading off to the flea market - but that's only a couple hours . . . the rest of the day should belong to me, and rightfully so if I may add !

Hope you had a great Holiday. The fireworks didn't bother me so much this year...but Dad was with me to protect me from BOOMS. He's a good protector.
Our 4th of July was warm and sunny and nice -not a drop of rain. Dad went to a nice party in the afternoon.

Today Dad and Uncle Geno are going to see "Magic Mike XXL" -sounds silly to me. Everyone knows birds dance much better than humans.

Depending on exactly where you move to, Orlando show could be anywhere from 90 to 100 miles. We're about 50. There is a show in largo, and Bellville, about 50 miles for you. Next closest is Lakeland, about 60 or so. So I guess it all depends on where you'll be living. RT

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY. mom had me out on the porch while she read the paper. she attached my leash to the porch railing because there was a little more sun in that area. mom was sitting about 3 feet away from me. suddenly mom heard me flying and her heart froze as she looked up. i decided i wanted to sit on mom and not the railing and had tried to fly to mom but the leash want long enough and i fell to the ground. i am ok but it sure scared mom and she will keep me on her from now on.

  Hi sweetie, ♥
Scoobers eyes flash red as he is so excited by Chyna's compliment and love...
Another hot one...but at least cooler than yesterday, only got up to, but the good news is that the AC is fixed. The owner came out this morning, mom called and left a message last night that the AC was still not working. It ended up being more than just the part the tech replaced yesterday, the tech should have stayed and checked to make sure everything was working properly. If he had stayed to find out what caused the part to fail he would have found that the area containing the blower was full of water. When the boss took off the cover water poured out and the bad news was that it got some of the electrical components wet...not good...he was here for almost three hours...but it is working now and dad is super happy about that...

Hope the parronts had a nice day in town and that the cook out was good. I'll come over and sit with you tonight and protect you from the fireworks...

Love you, Scoober your knight in shinning armor... ♥

  Hi Chyna
Thanks for the 30 K congrats. Sounds like you had a nice 4th and hope you had fun on the patio too.
Happy 4th of July!! I hope you had a safe and fun one too. Every jungle talk toy I have ever had the one button always breaks on it for some reason. Mom says the reason is me she is pretty sure. Well today mom was looking at the new jungle talk toy mom gave me a few days ago cause my other one broke and yep this one button don’t work either now! Mom says and to think my order didn’t even come yet with the new ones she ordered for me. “Laughter is an instant vacation” Left a vote for you my friend. Your kissing cousin, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Chyna
Happy 4th of July to you.Sounds like a nice time with the craft show and parade then a cook out.
Its been another over cast day here but getting warmer and the humidity is building. Maybe the parronts will close everything up and turn on the air.I wouldn't mind so much since there were a lot of fireworks going off last night.I get really nervous if they sound to close.Have a good evening.

  Heya, Miss Chyna!
Mom says the other thing that is big down south is the roadside stands or small fresh produce markets. Auntie Judy loved going there for fresh fruit and veggies. With the nice weather, though, all year around, I bet there are farmers markets, too.

Mom turned on the a/c today again, as we had some really hazy sunshine out there this afternoon. 78, but feels like a lot warmer with that sun. We have the a/c set at 80--and surprisingly, it is cool in here. But oh, Monday is supposed to be really hot and humid. UGH.

Mom's former boss works at the bank, and she will vouch for Mom's writing skills. She says the manager for the position is nuts. Mom will find out more after the interview, as she is going over to the former bosses house on Monday.

Other than that, just a nice day with Mom. Hope yours was just a super!

Wing hugs coming your way!
Your buddy,

  Hey Chyna,
They reach the beach and find the perfect place to set up their tents and canopy right under the big tree.

From here everyone can perch in the tree or sit on the sandy beach and watch the fireworks go off tonight. We've got the perfect view. :)

Mom and pop unload and set up the buffet table for after everyone swims and gets hungry.

Mom has the veggies and assorted fruits of apples, grapes, kiwi, oranges and guava for everyone to eat. It's all chopped up and ready to eat in bite size fruits and veggies.

Everyone is in the water, Pookie and Cookie are on their boogie boards and Kacey and Laka are on their whale and ducky floaties joined by SweetPepper and Kiddo playing Marco Polo with Dixie and his flock.

The water is nice and cool as its a nice and hot sunny 4th of July holiday.

Dad gets the wood ready for the Bon fire for tonight before the fireworks starts so that everyone can eat their hot dogs and marshmallows on a stick.

Dad is also cooking some grilled asparagus and peppers and tomatoes on the grill. A variety snack for everyone to enjoy.

If they're not in the water some birdies are eating in the tent as everyone takes turns from eating and playing in the water to Candida and Kallie making a giant sand castle.

As it gets dark everyone dries off the water and grabs a plate of goody snacks. We've got grilled veggies to grilled hot dogs and the fruits and veggies are cool as they are on ice from the cooler. There's guava, orange, apple and lilikoi juice in the cooler along with bottled water as we don't want anyone getting dehydrated as it was a hot day.

Dad gets the Bon fire going and everyone takes a seat on the logs and cooks their hot dog or marshmallow on a stick as the fire works start going off.

Everyone oooohs and ahhhhhs as the sky is brightly colored and they have the happy face one too says Dixie, my favorite. :)

After the fireworks they all gather for some of Papa Peters spooky stories.

What a great 4th of July for everyone to enjoy.

Then mom announces don't forget there's dessert of Sweetpeppers sweets and also brownies and pineapple cake too.

Everyone runs to get dessert before the spooky story starts.

Love, hugs and a vote.

Laka and Pookie

Come visit me, Queen Angel Sallykins says thank you all 4 BOTD, Pookie says lets go to the beach !!! & Princess Laka thanks everyone for making her BOTD.

  Happy Birthday, America!!
Hi Chyna,

Well, you will all be glad to hear that I decided I wanted a sunbath yesterday afternoon, and it actually had cooled off enough (80 @ 4PM) that Mom decided we could go out there. Dad thought we were crazy, and he claims I have Mom trained. (hmmm) Well, I once again refused to get in the outside carrier this morning, and I actually teased Mom by landing on it twice while she was trying to coax me in there. As soon as she would come over and say "climb in" I would fly away! Wonder if I can get her to take me out this afternoon again? It is 85 out there right now, so it just might be tolerable in a couple of hours.

Mom and Dad went on their normal Saturday grocery run this morning thinking everyone would have done their holiday shopping yesterday. They were wrong. It wasn't too bad though. And one lady walked up to the lobster tank which was well-stocked with live lobsters, summoned (yes, I said summoned) the butcher and said "I'll take them all!" Dad said there were about 15 or 16 lobsters in there for the holiday weekend, and they were $19.99/lb!! And most of them were big guys. There was probably over 25 pounds of lobster in there, and she really did take them all. Must be nice to be that rich!

Have your read Panther's story for today yet? It is so romantic and touching. I think his campaign is going to be one of the best yet!!

  Happy 4th Chyna
Do you get to stay home today?
My mom thinks your mom felt the little quake cause the building was so high.
Today is warmer but mom's knee is still problematic so she is staying right here with us, the way we like it.

  Hi Chyna
Oh how wonderful that your gma is turning 90!That is so amazing and we all here wish her the best birthday ever!Nana will be 90 in December.And you're right its hard to get something for someone who's that age!
Today is a dull sunless kind of on the cool side day here with the highs for the day of 70 and the lows of 58 and its 70 right now and looking more and more like rain.Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and room and then she got dad's things ready for him to go to work this afternoon for the parade.Mom did some chores and cleaned up more clutter and is going to vacuum the house later on when she gets done with some dusting.We won't be getting outside today because its just not warm enough and its looking like rain right now.Skin sis called Mom and wants to come over tonight for dinner,she'll bring a pizza,it sounds like she wants to come over here more often lately.Mom is finally getting a quiet day with not much running around to do.She's so glad that she doesn't have to go out today.Tomorrow she's planning on having a BBQ if the weather cooperates and won't rain like it has been the last six Sunday's.We are hoping to join them all on the deck for the BBQ tomorrow!I sure do agree with you on all those loud boomers.I don't like them in thunder boomers or firecracker boomers and Mom has to take me and hold me the whole time til its all over with.
Dixie happily gets his braces on as he's so excited to see what happens in part two of the movie!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for my sweet Chyna Girl! Loving you always and forever,Dixie

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

Hi Pretty Chyna,
I'm so sorry to hear that you were sick. I've never had to take any medicine, and Momma's really happy about that, too. She says that giving me medicine would be like trying to hold down an alligator! Speaking of alligators, where in FL are you moving to? Did your folks already buy a home or condo? I was hoping to get to see your Mom again this summer. I really like her!

We think that the little cygnets were killed by another animal. They roost in a pretty remote spot for anyone to get to, but we do have some VERY large snapping turtles in our little lake. They range in weight from 12 to 50 pounds!! Once my Daddy saw one take a full grown Canada goose down under the water. Terrible! We also have a lot of hawks and a pair of golden eagles that live in the woods near us.

We don't have any plans for today, just vegging at home, as usual. It's a really pretty day today. Momma should go out and work in the garden for a bit. I think she said that the weeds are really growing and need pulling. She made us all scrambled eggs this morning for breakfast. Yummm! We talked to Uncle Chuck Dallas this morning, too, which was great! He's one of our favorite people.
Lots of Love and Hugs from Finnegan

Come visit me, Finnegan - Happy Independence Day, Daisy - R.I.P. - BOTW 9/17-9/23/07 & Miss Lucy Blue - Happy 4th of July!.
