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. 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.

V4U today. We're flying by to wish you and your family a wonderful and a very Happy Thanksgiving. :) Mom's busy in the kitchen, Dad's busy reading the paper. LOL :) Everyone will be coming to our house for Thanksgiving lunch today. Our flock has been told that we will get some of the food, too. :) Mom is sorry that she has not been blogging lately. Along with being busy, our oldest dog just had a cancerous tumor removed. So mom has been preoccupied with that. Thank you for your friendship, and have a wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving. :) From, Mayo

  Okay next set mom blows the whistle so every
Birdie knows time for the next set.

Laka says tails even before Pookie calls it! Haha she says and the coin is tossed and it falls tails in the sand so the girls serve.

Kacey serves and it goes over to Dixie and he bumps it up to Gus and he sets it up for Kiddo who spikes it over and Laka slides in the sand to hit the ball but Kiddos spike is too fast for her.

The boys yell yay !! And high four each other.

So now Pookie serves and it goes over to Candida and she hits it over to Cori who bumps it up to BooBoo who spikes it over to the dead spot and all the boys fly in the sand to get the ball but unable to. The girls all yell way to go BooBoo! And high four each other.

Little Angela turn and she serves the ball and it goes over Mikey and he bumps it up to Raffi who sets it up for Chipper who spikes it over to the girls dead spot and all the girls crumble to get the ball but end up in a dust storm.

The boys all cheer way to go Chipper! And high four each other.

Cookie serves and it goes over to Kacey who bumps it up Celine who sets it up for Cori who spikes it over and Pookie catches the ball. Pookie!! All the guys yell!! Pookie shrugs his shoulders and says sorry guys I was thinking of a pizza and just caught the ball. :(

Yay the girls all cheer, Cori, Cori!!! Then high four each other.

Pookie rolls the ball under the net for Chyna to serve. She serves it and it goes to Gus and he bumps it over to Pookie who sets it up for Gus who spikes it over to the girls dead zone. Yay the boys scream and high four each other.

The gear the whistle blowing and Pookies tummy growling and know its lunch time !!

Everyone heads to the tent for some yummy egg salad sandwiches and tuna with cucumber sandwiches and some fine chicken salad sandwiches along with sweet or sour pickles.

There's plenty of juice and bottled water so everyone help yourself!

Mom makes sure that every birdie has a sandwich and some juice or water to drink.

Everyone needs to stay hydrated now, I don't want any birdie fainting from heat stroke okay??

Oh sorry there's also some chips too, to go along with the sandwiches. She puts some on every birdies plate as she walks around.

One hour to the last half of the game, she shouts.

As in a few hours it will be dark.

Every birdie enjoys the lunch and talks about the game.

Come visit me, Angel Sallykins gives thanks to all her friends :), Pookie says Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie !! Yay & Laka is in the Kissing Booth ! Happy Gobble Gobbl.

That is a lot of snow! We got about 5+ inches over night and have about a foot total. Not sure what it is going to do over night again as it is the wet heavy kind so is squishy and yucky out. Mom got the peanuts for the jays so they were very happy to see mom put them out and they made them disappear quickly:) Mom enjoys the jays as they are so saucy and smart. Rather bold little fellows and they get pretty tame too. They like to remind mom if she forgets to put them out and will line up on the railing....LOL! Hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow!

  Heya, Miss Chyna!
Oh, I would go under those covers and stay there until spring if I lived where you do. I sure am not excited with snow. The new pictures are pretty but...oh, only in pictures, and not in real life!

Mom is making the cranberry sauce tomorrow, as she got home later from work today. She has been having real issues with logging into her system at work for the past week. But when she looked at her event log, she sees the problem has been going on since August. Though now it is really really bad. She is going to make sure someone just redoes the whole thing and hopefully that will take care of the problem. She probably won't be able to login at all over the holiday, but she is going to see if she can so she can email out the problem to the person who said that she would be fine. Haha!

Wishing you a great Thanksgiving Day tomorrow, and stay nice and comfy! Oh, ya, brought you some really good cocoa and marshymallows!

  HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM FINNNEGAN
Hi Chyna,
Our snow all melted on Sunday. Maybe we'll get a little for Thanksgiving. Daddy got to come home this afternoon. So he'll get to go to skin sis's for Thanksgiving dinner if he feels all right. I hope that they'll bring me something yummy. Momma says she will. She's making the cranberry sauce, pumpkin squares for dessert with homemade whipped cream and granddaughter's favorite...cinnamon-apple jell-o. We all wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving...and don't forget to tell God how thankful you are.
Lots of Love and Hugs, Finnegan♥

  Hi Chyna
mom always does our blogging for us after we go to bed at night.last night while mom was playing with me before bedtime she noticed this sour smell coming from my mouth and nares. naturally mom panicked and first thought that came to her mind was sour crop which can be very dangerous. i of course was acting fine, maybe not playing as much as usual but sure wanting lots of head scritches. no loss of appetite cause mom gave me a cashew and i gobbled it right down. i did seem to be very thirsty so mom added a tiny amount of apple cider viinegar to my water and i drank quite a lot of it. mom was going to take me to the vet first thing in the morning but instead of doing our blogging she was doing research on sour crop. this morning when mom got up the sour smell had dissipated quite a bit but is still there. i am still eating and drinking and acting fine so mom will continue with the vinegar and see if the smell goes away completely.

mom had to run to the store for a few things and after coming home and bringing her packages inside she noticed 2 house wrens that seem to be tangled up in something who were making quite a ruckus. mom left her packages on the front porch and got a step stool from inside to stand on so she could reach the braanch. they had somehow gotten their legs caught in a birdhouse mom had stuffed with our doggies hair clippings from this spring. mom tried to pull the hair out with one hand while holding the birds with her other hand but she coudlnt pull the hair out. she then gently pulled the birds legs out of the hair. she doesn't know if all the hair was off the legs or if their legs were damaged but , man, did they ever fly way fast. mom then pulled out all the tightly packed doggie hair clippings from the bird house and threw it away.something else for mom to feel guilty about.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

The snow is slowly coming up to the window eh? We had snow all day but was just a dusting in the end so that was good....well mom says it was LOL
Skin sis and family were going down their road and all of a sudden a deer ran across in front of their car and SIL slammed on the brakes but the deer hit the car. The one headlight is broken and the deer landed on the hood and then ran up into the woods. Son in law feeds the deer all winter so he really felt bad and the grand didn’t say anything for a long time and then just hoped he was ok and didn’t die. Good they all had seat belts on and nobody got hurt. Now starts the process of getting the car repaired and all that hassle. “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole stair case.“ Dropping a vote in your basket.

  HI CHYNA!!!!
Checked out your pictures...Looks like the snow is starting to pile up already for this winter season....Yes, when we woke up this morning the major snowstorm arrived and has been going strong all day...Everything is white trees, roads, power lines, etc...Temps are suppose to drop much lower and so it will be sticking around for a while.....We have been put in the bird room and it will take some time to get use to it....Because for so many years we all were in between the living room and dinning room....Mom is going to put a radio in our room with music playing so when she is not in there with us we have some kind of noise...Also she will be taking one of us at a time to be out of the room with her..Also skin brother wants to make the aviary so that we all can enjoy flying around in it and have a lot of freedom but also have access to our condos...So he must figure it all out before starting it...Hope you are having a nice day...Just pecked a V4U...With many of my warm birdie wing hugs to you my friend....Going to do the same thing grab an extra blanket and snuggle up in it with a cup of hot chocolate....Love you, Princess :o)

I must say the new snow pictures are very pretty even though the snow is a pain to deal with. That's a lot of snow already.
I'm not sure what's in those cabinets and I can't get them open so I'm going to chew my way in.

Mom also made those energy bars for us to eat, it's in the baking pan.

Full of peanuts, peanut butter and raisins and granola for energy.

Also there's 2 pans of pineapple cake so help yourself.

Everyone grabs a juice box or a cup full of juice and sit in the shade and hydrate.

The boys sit with the boys and the girls sit with the girls going over their strategy.

Raffi says I dunno about you guys but them girls is strong players!

Yeah I agree says Dixie, who knew Little Angel had it in her!

The girls team discuss the boys too. Chyna says I think we can still win this one and Kacey agrees. We just hafta show more aggression !! Argggg!!

Hahahaha then all the girls start laughing and that peaks all the boys interest, what are they laughing about says Pookie.

Everyone rests up before continuing the next half of the volleyball game, boys versus girls.

  Hey Chyna,
Well it's a sunny hot day of 81 degrees here in Hawaii.

Both teams are getting ready and start stretching and warming up for their game play and eyeing up the other team.

Kacey puts her wings to her eyes and then points to the boys team as if to say I've got my eye on you! Hehehehe

Mom says the game will end at 5 no matter who wins okay?

When I blow the whistle it's time, either a juice break or lunch break but two short whistles means the game is over. Both teams agree, good.

Pookie calls heads before Laka gets to say anything.

The coin falls and it's tails! Yay!! The girls team serves first.

Chyna serves the ball and it goes over to Gus who's in the middle and bumps it over to Pookie who sets it up for Chipper and he spikes it over to the dead spot and all the girls scramble to get it but unable to. Yay the guys all high four Chipper, way to go buddy!!

Kiddo is up serving and it goes over to Cori who bumps it up to Little Angel who sets it up for Laka and she spikes it over and Raffi dives into the sand for a save and hits it up to Dixie who volleys it over to BooBoo who bumps it up to Kacey who hits it over and lands by Mikey who bumps it over to Pookie who tries to spike it over but it hits the net.

Yay!! The girls team scream. Now it's Sugars turn to serve and she hits it so effortlessly over to Mario who bumps it up to Willie who sets it up for Kiddo who spikes it over and Laka dives in the sand to get the ball but Kiddos fast spike ball was too fast for her and sand flew all over as she dived for it.

Now Chipper serves and it goes over to Kacey who bumps it up to BooBoo who spikes it over to Gus and he dives in the sand and barely able to save the ball. Kiddo runs and bumps the ball back into play and Peepers volleys it over to Cori who bumps it up to Chyna who sets it up for Sugar and she spikes it over and lands in the dead spot. While all the boys try to dive for the ball they all end up in a dust of sand clouds with sand flying all over.

Yay Sugar!! All the girls yell and high four each other, good one !! :)

Now Cori serves and it goes over to Raffi and he bumps it up to Mikey who sets it up for Dixie who spikes it over to Little Angel who hits it but it goes out of bounds. Awwww the girls sigh.

Yay Dixie!! The boys all high four each other, good going Dixie!!

Mikey serves and it goes over to Kacey and she bumps it up to BooBoo who sets it up for Little Angel who spikes it over to the dead spot and all the boys rush to get up but end up in a cloud of dust. Yay Little Angel!! They all high four each other and she says in your face boys!

They hear the whistle and its a juice break and about time says Pookie as he's been sweatin' bullets out there.

They all run to the tent for some cold refreshing juice. Mom says there's pineapple, guava, lilikoi, orange, grape, apple and grapefruit juice so help yourself.

Mom also made those energy bars for us to eat, it's in the baking p

  Good Evening Miss Chyna!
It seems things are settling down around here since Mom last talked with Nanny & Aunt Kaylene. Mom has stopped rushing around & she hasn’t been packing her suitcase anymore. Once again, the wonderful scents & aromas have been wafting through the house, making me hungry! Mom has made a pumpkin pie & she tried a new recipe for Pumpkin Butterscotch Cake. It made a big pound cake & I asked to “try” until I was blue in the face & still Mom ignored my pleas! Hmphf! I’m hurt by her stinginess!

Since Mom has calmed down, I have been receiving my veggie & fruit portions with some nice toppings on them again. She has this “thing” that I like & it smells really good but one disturbing “thing” about it, is that it looks like a ninja death star!! Now, it does have these seeds in it that smell wonderful & taste better than they smell! I have decided to take those & keep them for later sharpening & using them for those asian throwing stars. I will have to practice because I can throw a knife fairly well but these…their weight distribution is much different than a heavy knife. It will take some getting used to for sure! Mom has been telling me the name of this treat is “anise” & I will repeat to her, “NICE” & bob my head up & down to show her I understand & that I like it very much. She doesn’t know I’m storing the stars in my corner piñata where I stuff all my “secret stuff” inside there! These will be housed there for later!

Lately, I’ve been exercising & toughening up for the football game Saturday! I have been running, sit-ups, chin-ups, & weight pressing using CocoPuff. She gets a little bit sick from the up & down motion but she’s been a real sport about it. I also have been running the tire course & keep messing up with my left side of my left foot, those nails grow faster than all the rest & make me stumble. I will have to show Mom my predicament so she can file them down for me. It will be a greyt time getting to play with everybirdy Saturday. Hope you have a greyt Thanksgiving Day! Give a hug to your good Momma, too! Hugs, SamIAm

Mom was cleaning behind our cages and she must've loosened up the plug or something after she unplugged them both and re plugged them in they started to heat back up again!Mom has got to be careful when she moves our triple decker cage when she pulls it out too far it pulls their plugs out of the wall!Its so good to have my Bird Warmer back to being warm again and my Thermal perch too!I can't believe how awful that snow is!Its beginning to look like last year for you with everything getting covered so high up to cover over all your windows again,how dreadful it is to be constantly covered in white and to be held in such deep coldness like that!
We woke up to a dark dismal,dreary rainy day here,the temperatures started out at 45 but are now slowly dropping to 43 and we are getting pouring rain.Its so dark the whole day just looks like night time here.But who am I to complain when I know and can see all what you and your sweet Momma are having to deal with and live through once again!My Mom's heart aches for your poor Momma being kept trapped in the house for days on end like that!I feel so bad for you also,not ever being able to see the sunshine again and if so only for a short period of time!And how scary to have such treacherous roads to be driving on just to run some errands,both Mom and I are so glad that your daddy drove your Mom to the store.I just know that my Mom would never last there for more than a few days at the most!She absolutely just hates the winter and the snow and the cold,but she'll tolerate the cold as long as there is no snow to keep shoveling out!
Dixie snuggles up close to Chyna in the warm comforter and his eyes close slowly as sleep tries to take them over,he is so warm and comforted in Chyna's warm love and friendship,he is so thankful for having her in his life,she always knows how to make his painful toes and legs feel so much better!
Mom and I and all of us here want to wish you and your wonderful Mom and dad and family a wonderful Thanksgiving!I may not be able to be on BC tomorrow as Nana isn't feeling very good and she asked Mom to come early in the morning to help her get everything ready and the table set.She woke up very dizzy this morning and Mom is worrying about her.We are praying that she will be better by the end of today.
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 Doll!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hi Chyna
YUCK! That snow is horrid! Sure, it looks pretty and all, but it's COLD and nasty. Mom signed Daisy up for that class, but can't remember if it's 8o or 9 weeks long. Mom was going to go to Lancaster for a bird show next week, but has decided not to go, because the furnace repair took some of her reserve cash for travel. She says if there's a show there in the spring, she will go then.
Daisy surprised mom with how well she did in class last night. She picked up things easily and practiced with mom and never tired out. The clicker training works!
BC is running so slow!
We all want to wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving in case we don't get online tomorrow. Mom is cooking and the bird is big, so we have to get up early to supervise.
It was supposed to flurry today, but it's been snowing since 9AM. There's no sign of a let up either. We are hoping everyone who is traveling this holiday gets to a destination safely.
Mom got her nails done this morning, and got her new driver's license. She kept looking outside while she was at the nail salon, hoping that the snow would stop, but no such luck.
Now that she's home, once she's done serving as our typist, she will bake pies, get the cranberry sauce ready, and do other little things so tomorrow goes smoothly. We are only having 10 people here, but it's still a chore to make sure all goes well. I hope you are having a good day, getting to taste test, or at least supervise, all the cooking that's going on. Make sure to get lots of scritches and cuddles today, too. Hugs, Falco

It's Alex.
Mom and dad were up and gone early yesterday. First they went to the Magnolia Bird Farm for our food. On the way there, their friend Bob called and they set up a time for dinner. Then mom and dad went to free movie day and saw "Dolphin Tale 2". It was a true story about an aquarium in Florida and how two dolphins got together. Great movie! Then they met Bob at home and decided to try Golden Corral again. this time they walked right in and were seated. As before, the food was great. By the time they got home it was time to tuck us in for the night.
Today will be clear, with a high of 86 and a low of 52. Mom and dad will be working on food for Thanksgiving. Mom's mom is coming over to use our kitchen to fix Thanksgiving food, also. Nothing in her kitchen works. Please don't get dad started on that subject.
Hope your day is fun.

  Hi, Chyna
Errrr, a shark swim? Something our mom would never do. Would imagine all boats need to be equipped with the life vests and hope never needed when on a fun outing.

So glad BC returned quickly. Everybirdie misses it when it isn't working.

The family had their Thanksgiving meal last night due to work schedules. So much yummy food and lots left over to make sandwiches, soup, etc. Mom has to do the overnight at midnight as there will be lots of signs to put up for Black Fri which really starts on Thu.

Thanks for the snow pics. At least it hasn't reached the window - yet! Gotta assume it'll get there eventually, heehee.

Keep warm, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Chyna
Cappy comes hopping in to Chyna's room and snags her by the wing ... come on girl friend you gotta come with me so we can make smores around the bonfire and I already have a thermos full of hot chocolate for you ... hurry up please, this is gonna be FUN!!!! Cappy is hopping from one foot to the other waiting on Chyna to put on her snow suit. In the meantime Cappy rambles on about him and Panther re-decorating the bird room and mom loosing it ... When she got home she saw the mess and belted out "The weather inside is frightful, the TP is so delightful, as long as you love me sooo, let it go, let it go, let it go". Um yep, call the men in the white suits with the straight jackets lol. Are you ready yet?!?!?! Have a verry Happy Thanksgiving.
Hugs.
Love Cappy

Oh my ... Cappy just discovered chicken leg. It was rather funny. Dad handed him a chicken leg and Cappy turned it over and over and looked at it very hard .... then he tasted it. We thinks he might have liked it. He worked on it for a good 10 minutes before going on to something else. Have a Happy Thanksgiving. V4U. Hugs.

  Guess what Chyna ?
SNOW ! It's only Thanksgiving ! The forecast has been downgraded from yesterday at least - last night when mom tucked me in, they were calling for 12-18 inches, this morning it's only 8-12 ! I say that's still too much ! Mom is waiting to see if she'll have school - lots of districts around have already called it a day off, since it's only a half day anyway -

Later it'll be make the stuffing and chop up veges - pies are now done and in the fridge :) Yum, yum, yum :) What's up at your perch for the holiday ? Whatever it is, I sure do hope it's a happy one :) love Cookie

Come visit me, Cookie - GO PILGRIMS !, BC Library Now Open & Fly with the angels my Sally.

  Hi chyna
I'm standing here before you, because I'm not behind you.

I know you've all heard it before, but I just had to let you know that our second favorite bird show is this Sunday, over in Plant City, also known as the Strawberry Capital of the world.

This is the show that's held outdoors, under a gazillion old oak trees on 4-5 acres. Out in the middle of no where. But it is by far well worth the drive, and we know good stuff will be coming our way. Mom said it's time for a new cage for me, so I might get a BIG present. Then we have to wait until January for our next show over in Orlando, near Goofy World.

Come visit me, JeTTa.

  Hello, Miss Chyna! Thank You For Your Prayers!
Well, Mom has been running around to & fro cleaning, cooking, doing laundry (in case she were to have to leave), trying to catch her breath, & then starts it all over again!

She has been in touch with her Mom & sister every evening. Nanny is still very weak & frustrated with all of the stupid things that can happen at hospitals & with doctors, etc. The stress test that was suppose to happen Monday, well, when Nanny didn’t stay for the weekend, just laying there waiting to have tests on Monday, she thought about that after they stabilized her, & decided she could wait much easier at home than being woke up every 2 hrs. for a blood pressure check & temperature reading. The staff (or doctor? we don’t know) decided since she went home, they canceled ALL HER TESTS!! But they neglected to tell neither Nanny nor Aunt Kaylene that they had done so! Yep. This past Monday, they drove all the way to downtown Huntsville just to find out there were no orders & that she wasn’t on the list for Monday, nor any day at that matter! Aunt Kaylene had been trying to get Nanny into her main physician & when she told them the situation, they scheduled them an appointment this coming Monday. I’m getting the feeling that Alabama’s healthcare system really blows for geriatric care.

Nanny is doing alright, so far. Aunt Kaylene has a wheelchair & has been using it with Nanny. I bet both of them are very glad that Aunt Kaylene has had their home re-designed for easy wheel-chair access. Also, she had one of their bathrooms redesigned with a walk in bathtub. This has been really useful for Nanny, now, not just for Aunt Kaylene. For those of you who don’t know, Aunt Kaylene was in an accident that turned very complicated & the injury wouldn’t heal right & she lost her right leg to amputation. They had to do that to save her life. That is the main reason Mom goes over there a month to 6 wks. at a time because she has worked hard helping them in that ordeal. She has her own room there, too!

We so appreciate all your prayers for Mom’s family & also Mom. It has been a strange ordeal & hasn’t gone the way Mom thinks is any where near “normal” to say the least! Mom is hoping nothing is damaged with Nanny’s heart due to the delay this is turning out to be. Her heart history has been 2 angioplasty procedures done. The first one they implanted a stent inside one of her main arteries. Then 20 years later, she had another heart episode, & the stent needed replacing. That was about 4 or 5 yrs. ago. So, there is cause for concern when she starts having pain in her chest. She didn’t think the cardiologist recognized that he had operated on her before. Probably not since she didn’t need to see him all that often. Once she had those procedures done, she was off & running. All the family is concerned about her & are giving their time to be with her.

We are so thankful for all our friends. You are all the best that there is! Hugs, Sam

  Hi Chyna
Boo Boo and Piddy Girl enjoyed their cheerleading practice tonight. Susan came late but was very excited to be there and when she kicked her leg up high her shoe fell off. right now i am making Boo Boo and Piddy Girl learn their cheer. we are so glad we don't live at your house with all that snow. everyone is panicking here because we are expecting a norestern and it will probably only affect Philly. of course you never know how those weather patterns can change at the last minute.

love Cori and Boo Boo

  HI CHYNA OF THE NORTH
WE HAD 30 DEGREE WEATHER TODAY BUT NO WIND SO IT WASN'T BAD. THEY SAY WE ARE TO GET SNOW STARTING LATE WED BUT NOT SURE.

THAT FIRST PICTURE IN YOUR GALLERY LOOKS LIKE A PERFECT CARD FOR CHRISTMAS. SNOW IS PRETTY IF IT STAYS OFF ROADS AND SIDEWALKS AND OTHER IMPORTANT PLACES. BET YOUR DAD HAS BEEN VERY BUSY.

I AM GOING TO GET TURKEYS PAINTED ON MY NAILS FOR THANKSGIVING.

MOM GOES FOR HER EPIDURAL TOMORROW SO SHE WILL NOT BE BLOGGING. SHE WILL GET VOTES IN ONLY IN THE MORNING.

WISHING YOU A VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING
