Mr SKY & the lovely MISS BIG BABY (BB) are to be wed in JANUARY 2014
date to be announced
Baby is the LOVE-OF-MY-LIFE- , and always will be.

THE SPOTLIGHT ON CARING blogs will resume in November 2013 with Polly & Zippy



Sky was a bird that was extremely abused early in his life. He sustained many injuries that where never treated.
At 2 years old SKY was rescued and went to live in a parrot rescue near London, Ont. He lived there for 7 years. It became necessary to rehome SKY into a forever home with someone who would accept and make allowances for his disabilities. By chance I saw something regarding Sky on the internet and decided to check it out. I am so glad that my curiosity brought us together. HE is a true gentleman and a spokes bird about abuse and rescues.
He travels around Eastern Ontario where he & Momma Deb speak to people or groups about humane bird care, about abuse and about bird rescues etc.
HE is a home town celebrity, with people stopping in to visit with him regularly.

  Hi Sky
Yesterday we got some rain and some thunder storms, too. Mom was on the phone when she heard thunder in the distance, so she hung up and got Daisy into her Thundershirt right away. It really does help her to stay calmer. Mom also went out and took some of the hanging baskets to put out into the rain, so they'd get a good soaking. Today we are back to sunshine and warm temps, so mom will go to the pool this afternoon, and probably out to dinner with her sis tonight. Kitchen work starts next Monday, YAY!
Mom has to call the tile place to see if they've shipped the tiles yet. She hasn't heard anything.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of warm weather and love. Hugs, Peppino

  Right in the middle of fixing dinner last night we lost water ! ! Mom found out it was a town problem and the whole neighborhood was out ! Until almost 10:00 ! She had to send daddy out for a couple gallons so they could brush teeth and all - he came back with a dozen roses for mom ! Wasn't that nice ?

Then this morning we woke up to big thunderboomers ! They woke us all up around 4:00 :( I'm taking a nap later !

Today is their 28th anniversary - later on they'll go out to their favorite Italian restaurant - all mom really wants is the fresh mozzarella appetizer ! The place layers it with eggplant, prosciutto, roasted red pepper and basil and then is drizzled with balsamic :) After that she doesn't care what she eats ! I just hope I get a birdie bag !

Have a great Tuesday my friend :) love Cookie

  Heya, Sky!
7600 from me to you!

Not a lot going on here today. Nice relaxing day with Mom, getting a lot of head scritches and neck and cheek and chin ones, too. Getting in some new feathers, so needless to say, Mom was full of what she calls bird dust. Then I took a huge bath and boy, did that feel good!

Gorgeous here today-- 81, with no humidity or dew points. Sunny, with a nice breeze. Patio doors were open all day to get the fresh air in. Gotta say that it was a perfect day!

Wing hugs coming atcha!

Today mom was up to her neck in bunnies! Seriously, there were cages stacked on top of cages, on the feeding table, and everywhere else it was possible to put a cage or a kennel cab. The kennel cabs are for the youngest bunnies, and there were about 9 of those stacked on top of the regular cages. All in all, she cleaned 23 cages today. She also did intake for a goldfinch and a chimney swift, so that's not bad for a morning's work, right?
This afternoon after gassing up the car, she went to the pool to relax and finish yet another novel. It's not quite done yet, though, because mom was feeling she had to get our blogs done this afternoon. Tonight is ours alone! I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of sunshine and love. Hugs, Peppino

  Hey mr. Sky
Yesterday, although it was hot (92) had very low humidity so was still fairly comfortable. My Laura and mom didn't get home till 5:00ish and mom didn't want to cook so daddy went out for Chinese food for everyone. I munched on my sugar snap peas, squash and couscous :)

Today is a stay home day for mom - except for the library ! She's almost out of reading material . . . AGAIN ! I must say I like it much better when she goes out to buy books so that I can "help" her read them !

She was checking the long range forecast for our vacation week . . . YUCK ! On and off storms for several days :( Daddy's going to see if he can leave this Friday instead since the weekend is supposed to be nice - we'll see . . .

Have a great day my dear friends ! love from Cookie

Wow, we had some icky clouds come in here, and some rain, lightening and thunder. But it seems to have stayed south of us--we sure could have used more rain, that is for sure. Mom turned on the a/c this morning and it is still going--even though we have a good breeze with all that wind gusting around. Hopefully things will cool down like they said. It was 92 here today! We were so lucky to not get the golf ball and baseball sized hail that is falling to our south. Ugh!

Just a lovely day with Mom, and enjoying my watermelon and seeds.

  Hi Sky
Don't you just love this time of year when you can reach out into the yard/garden for fresh tomatoes, peppers, and herbs? Mom loves cooking with fresh herbs.
Yesterday mom went to a fruit stand across the river for some seasonal goodies. She was hoping for blueberries, because she saw what a good price they were, but they were already sold out when she got there. So instead, we have a fresh canary melon, some Chambersburg peaches (more or less local), pluots, plums, and for us especially, an orange pepper and a fresh zucchini. The pluots look especially juicy, but mom cut up melon and peaches for us this morning. (Falco won't touch any of that, she doesn't know what she's missing.) Mom didn't know what canary melons were, but they look like honeydew on the inside and are sweet. Pluots are plum/apricot hybrids, and are usually great.
It looks like another pool day and another day of toting that watering can all over the place. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of fresh summer produce and cuddles. Hugs, Willie

Mom and dad got home early yesterday and daddy was pooped out from all the yard work at the g'parronts - so while he rested, I had a fresh sugar snap pea, a green bean and even a blackberry ! ! ! Then mom sang to me - she's trying to teach me the Cookie Monster song, but all I sing is "cookie, cookie, cookie" !

Today she's shopping with my Laura, but daddy will be home and he's always fun to play with ! Just one more week till daddy's vacation and we head upstate to my Skaneateles Lake cabin ! Mom says I need a pedicure first though so tomorrow morning she's going to call to make an appointment . . . sigh, farewell my awesome talons :(

  Heya, Sky!
Mom did it! SHE DID IT! She found me watermelon with seeds! It was by accident too--she goes to this neat store with lots of organic stuff, and other specialty items plus regular groceries. She remembered Boo Boo telling me to check places that sell organic stuff, and she saw they had organic mini-watermelons. Well, they HAD SEEDS! She was so happy she finally found one for me! They are not ready here yet at the farmer's market but she knows that at least she might find them at this store. And she cut it up for me and gave me some with the seeds and I chomped those down in no time. Isn't she the best Mom?

And we went to the Farmer's Market. It was warm, sunny but a bit windy at times. I got to see Paula, and Jerry and Chris, and I even flirted with Chris. He thinks I am pretty cool, and he calls me "Handsome". I like that! I flirted with Paula, too, of course. It was really busy there so we didn't get to visit too long. Then we picked up corn on the cob, and it took longer than I wanted, so I hollered "Vite, vite, vite!" That is French for fast, and it is pronounced 'veet' like 'beet'. Mom taught me that a long time ago, but I haven't said it much. She told me to hold my feathers, and so I said "Ya-Ya-Ya". She laughed at that, alot. Stopped and got some eggs, and I said something that startled the farmer--but he thought I was the coolest thing ever! Of course! Hehe!

Hope we don't get the bad storms they are talking about for tomorrow. We need rain, but not the kind that pounds the ground. Nice gentle one would be lovely. Supposed to be humid, too.

Wing hugs coming atcha!

Even though it was hot yesterday, it wasn't humid so the only time the a/c was on was when mom was fixing dinner . . . I helped her do some laundry and we played. Another day the two of us just spent together :)

Today is a different story - off the folks are going to the g'parronts . . . at least there's that great market near them so I know mom will come home with some yummy things for me ! Not tomatoes of course, those we just have to open the back door to get !

Have a great Saturday :) love to all my friends ! Cookie

  Heya, Sky!
Mom and Kim did their weekly outing today--and after a wrong turn, and having a young red fox run in front of the car (Mom slammed on the brakes so she would not hit it!), they made it to the General Store/railroad salvage place. Got some good deals on food with long expiration dates (not always the case there). Then it was off to have lunch in Port Washington--fish fry! The original restaurant closed 12 years ago, and now they have a coffee shop. It was so gorgeous to see the lake and all the boats in the marina. Would have been a lovely day to sail on the lake, too. Then it was off to Meijer's for food. No watermelon with seeds though. And the watermelon without did not look good, so Mom passed on that. Then it was back to drop Kim off (and all the food, too, that she bought) and head home. Long day for Mom and Kim, for sure. Now she is home and I am velcroed to her. She brought me some snow peas, which were yummy. But the best place to be? On Mom's shoulder, getting head scritches and chin scritches. Love it!

Hope you had a wonderful day, too! Wing hugs coming atcha!

  Hi Sky
Mom is just watering with the watering can, she decided not to take any chances.
Today mom was assigned the Avian Nursery with 3 other people. It was great, because they had all the cages cleaned before mom left! That rarely happens in summer, when everything is full. Mom cleaned and fed robins (lots), an oriole, a couple of mockingbirds, a few crows, some ducklings, a killdeer, and some jays. She loves that place, there are always birds in there she hasn't seen up close before. Today it was the oriole.
When she went to the pool, they weren't letting anyone in the water because there was no chlorine in there. It took a couple of hours to get the pump fixed and the level where it should be, so mom only got in the water for a few minutes before it was time to come home and blog.
I hope you are having a wonderful day, getting some sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Peppino

I just loved the breakfast of toast & coffee. Why did you not make any eggs ???

How about if we take the big shuttle up to the ISS for a visit? We can take them a bunch of supplies. They are haveing a hard time getting supply rockets to stop blowing up!!!

Then we can go to Mars and investigate that face & pyramid the scientist say Rover has found.
Lets leave some Macaw foot prints in the dirt. Wonder what the Rover team will think of them?? LOL

Thank you Kiddo for giving me this honor and thank you Falco,Kaji and Chyna for the nomination !!! I love you all!

Navajo code talkers conclusion
Recruiters visited the Navajo rez and selected 30 code talkers. One dropped out so 29 started the program.Many of these were young Navajos who never left the Rez,making the transition to military life more difficult.Yet they perserved.
They would work night and day helping to create the code.Once the first 29 were finished,two remained behind to train future Navajo code talkers.
The program was successful.The entire Navajo Nation had 50,000
people.By the end of the war 420 Navajo men worked as code talkers !!!

I salute all the Navajo Code talkers and our U.S soldiers. Please say a prayer for our military. They work hard to protect all of us and our freedom !!!

Much love to all of you

The humidity is gone ! Even though it's still supposed to hit 90, it shouldn't be too bad . . . yesterday seemed the worst of all until it got dark as midnight around 4:00 and the thunderboomers barreled through dumping oodles of rain on the house -

Busy weekend coming up - tomorrow is visit the g'parronts day and then mom promised my Laura to go out on Sunday shopping a bit . . . luckily mom doesn't need anything so she'll be the barometer for Laura's wallet ! har har har !

Happy Thursday !!! Did I throw you off with those questions ??? It was all in fun and games heehee !!! I did say I was going to surprise you...Raffi got every answer right !!! Congrats Raffi!

In honor of our U.S military...Today I'm going to talk about Navajo Code Talkers. They are from the Navajo nation...

In U.S history the things that happened to us Native Americans were tragic.Invaders and settlers took most of our lands and misunderstood our culture and killed us in the thousands.
Then during World War 2 ,the U.S goverment needed our Navajo Brothers to help.And though they suffered greatly from this same government our Navajo brothers proudly answered the call to duty.

Communication is very essential during any War.
Codes were often used,but broken.In 1942 a man named Philip Jonhston thought of a code that would be un breakable by the enemy.
A code based on the Navajo Language...

Be here for the conclusion tommorow...
Thank you for your votes
Love
Panther

PS Watch wind talkers starring Nicholas Cage.Awesome movie about the Navajo code talkers !!!

  YUCK ! Last night was a cold sandwich supper in our house - I got the first bite of cherry tomatoe right out of the back yard :) Yum !

Daddy was driving down our road yesterday and got worried cause there was a small bird in the middle of the road. He pulled over and saw it was a blue jay fledgling . . . he walked over to urge it back to the grass so it wouldn't get hit. Then he sat in the car (in the heat with the engine off so it wouldn't be spooked) for almost half an hour to make sure its mommy was around . . .

Yesterday mom was at the pool, finished one novel and started another. Today will be another pool day, because it's already sunny and bright outside.
Remember how we were sad to see all that rain earlier this year? Well, now mom is hoping for some rain for her flowers. The hose hookup is in the garage where the cabinets are being stored, and she doesn't want to hook it up because it leaks. It might warp some of the cabinets, and that's just not acceptable. She's kind of thinking of hooking up the hose to a stationary tub by the washer, and running it out from the basement, but we'll have to see how that looks with the water running.
Anyway, cold meals are the thing. Last night mom made chicken salad with a piece of meat she had cooked the night before. Tonight it may be tuna salad, we have some tuna steaks in the freezer and one of them should cook up in no time.
I hope you are staying cool and still getting some sun and cuddles. Hugs, Peppino

We're still caught up in the tropical heat wave ! 94 yesterday with high humidity - hotter today - or so the weather guessers say . . . at least it keeps mom close to home ! In fact yesterday she ventured as far as the library and came home with a stack of books so I think she's planning on staying here :)

Yesterday I jumped onto one of those little square tissue boxes and it tipped over ! Thank goodness I had my wings to save me - mom came and gave me lots of hugs and kisses anyway though since I was a little spooked. That wasn't supposed to happen !

Stay cool and have fun - love you ! Cookie

We are in a streak of good weather here. It's gonna be another bright sunshiny day, so mom will be heading out at noon for a few hours at the pool. Everything will need watered soon if it doesn't rain, though. This is going to present a problem, since the hookup for the hose is in the garage with the new cabinets. Mom doesn't want to have any water in the garage until the cabinets are out of there. She can't do laundry until they are moved, either, since the dryer vents into the garage.
The other day mom won a little basket at the pool fundraiser. She thought at first glance that it was tea, but when she opened it yesterday, there was pasta, sauce, some candies, a gift card, and one box of tea. The good thing is that it's English Breakfast tea, which mom likes. She is starting to pick tomatoes from the planters, too! We got some Siberian ones and a couple of indigo blues yesterday. Mom put pesto on them for a little salad, and they were delicious.
I hope you are having a great day today and getting lots of love. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi mr. Sky
We're heading into a heat wave for sure ! Yesterday wasn't as bad as the weather guessers predicted, but starting today ? 90's and humid ! Straight through next week ! ! Lots of indoor time and cold meals ! At least it keeps mom home in the a/c with me :) Daddy is taking today to go mow the g'parronts lawn early today before it gets too bad out . . .

That's all the news here - but that's OK, cause you know what they say ? "No news is good news" ! Hope you have a "no news" day too ! Love to all in you home - Cookie

It was an interesting morning at the center today. Mom was assigned to clean and feed in the raptor aviaries, the main aviary, and the small flight aviary. She was well on her way, had done the raptors (4 great horned owls and a red tailed hawk), and was cleaning the main aviary, which is currently divided into 2 separate areas, keeping the fledglings indoors and the more adult birds outside. One of the other RVS certified volunteers called off, so Bree came to see mom. She said, "I need a big favor." So mom thought she was going to assign her the RVS animals again. Instead, she said we have an RVS certified intern! Could you teach Haneen how to do the outdoor pens, and someone else will teach her on the indoor cages? Mom was so happy to do that. She still got to do the main aviary, and was able to coach the intern on how to do the outdoor pens. That meant cleaning both areas of the aviary and trying her best not to interact with the fledgling jays. They landed on her, fluttered their wings, begging for food, and she had to ignore that, clean, then feed them from bowls instead of by hand. They are growing up so fast.
It was hot this morning, and only got hotter as the day went on, so we all know where mom spent the afternoon! Yes! Lounging at the pool on her noodle, coming out to read and get a sip of iced tea. Now she's home, blogging for us, and will spend the rest of the day with us. I hope you are having a great summer day, getting some sunshine and lots of cuddles. Hugs, Peppino

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.

  Hi Sky
Last night was a fantastic time for all of us, I think. Thanks to Kiddo, Taz, Kaji and Lizzie, and especially Panther for another great milonga! We all had a terrific time.
Mom went to Madonna del Castello last night for their festa, and got a hot sausage sandwich, melanzane rolatini, and pizza fritta to bring home. That's eggplant stuffed with ricotta and fried pizza dough for those not acquainted with such delicacies. Mom doesn't make eggplant all that often any more, and never fries dough! It was sure tasty.
Today is a bright sunny pool day, and later, a birdie kind of evening. I hope you are having a wonderful summer day and that your feet aren't too tired from all that dancing. Hugs, Willie

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.
