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
The weather guessers were WRONG again. Yesterday was not sunny, although it didn't rain anymore, we didn't see any sunshine either - and it didn't get into the 60's like they said ! It was chilly and in the mid-50's. Hopefully today will be nicer since the parronts are heading to the orchard for apples :) Me ? I'll be resting up for the Halloween Milonga !

I even took a great big splashing all over the room and daddy bath yesterday ! So I'm clean ! Have a fun day :) love Cookie

  Heya, Sky!
It was a pretty day here--around 60 degrees, with sun. Mom walked to the bank at lunchtime--she never realized how close the downtown branch was to her job. She still can't get to the spot behind the War Memorial--she says that she would love to be able to go there but they are still doing work on the front of the place, and probably a couple of the cement blocks that are loose when you walk on them. She did take a short walk to where she could see the lake, and some sailboats were out there today. Tomorrow will be nice too, but not warm enough (unless there is a miracle) to go to the market. But we will go take stuff to Goodwill, Mom says. So I will be out and about. I will take it!

  Hi Sky
Mom did the RVS room today, but there was only a bat in there. The raccoons were moved outside, where mom cleaned their cages and fed them. They are much easier to deal with outside since the staff decided the best way to handle them indoors was to scruff them to move them. They said it's more sanitary than using a towel. Mom doesn't feel comfortable scruffing large raccoons, so doing the RVS room the past couple of times has been trying. However, they are easy to deal with outdoors, because they don't have to be moved, mom can clean around them.
After leaving the center, mom went to Radio Shack to buy a new phone, as her present one isn't holding a charge for long. Long story short, Virgin Mobile wanted her pin, which she had no idea about, so she had to come home for a few hours. They locked her account, and she can't get into it. She gave them all the other info, and they changed her pin to something she'll remember, but wouldn't let her in to transfer data from the old phone to the new one. She will be making a second trip today to do that. The nice young man at Radio Shack told her to come back in a couple of hours.
Yesterday, mom got all the peony bushes cut back, and one of the roses pruned. There is more work to do on the roses, which might happen today. She is borrowing a wheelbarrow from a neighbor to haul the cut greens to the hillside. She will toss it all down the cliff and let it compost there. It might provide hide spaces for some critters, too.
I hope you are having a good day today, getting some sunshine and lots of love. Hugs, Falco

  Hi mr. Sky
TGIF ! ! ! It's been a long week with the weather being cold and damp - at least the rain stopped :) Even the temps are supposed to go up into the 60's for the next few days :)

I know the parronts are heading out to find a new bookcase for the bedroom and then to the orchard for some apples. That hopefully means something yummy baking in the kitchen for Sunday :)

Have a terrific day - sending my love ! Cookie

  Heya, Sky!
Today was a kinda nice day, Mom said. She went out at lunch and took the upper trail along the lake, which was nice. She still can't go to her favorite place as that is blocked off for repairs. But of course, when she was ready to go home: rain. At least it was not raining hard, just little sprinkles.

Apologies for the quick note--Mom has an idea on the stuff she was working on at work, and she wants to make sure she can get the idea down before she forgets it! So I told her it was okay to use the puter.

TGIF day tomorrow!

  Hi Sky
Yesterday after mom did some of that yard cleanup, she played with us and did a light cleaning of the cages. Today is a major scrub down, though, so we will all have to rearrange our stuff after she's done. I didn't stay with mom for long yesterday, I was more interested in cuddling with the rope wreath on top of my cage. Willie won the prize for being the most clingy yesterday. He stayed with mom a long time, trying to decorate her tee by making it lacy, then trying out her shirt buttons, too. He preened her hair for awhile then he got bored and went back to his pinata. Peppino is being shy again, so mom isn't forcing him to come with her, but because of past experience, she knows he'll be with her before long. We are all thinking that Bree will be by to trim our nails before long, at least that's what mom is saying.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of scritchies and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

Another dark dreary wet day here . . . the kind that settles in your bones and you just can't get warm. Plus mom has recess duty on Thursday and she'll be indoors . . . YUCK ! Luckily, it's supposed to be over by tomorrow - nice weekend coming up :)

It gets dark so early - I'm getting tired and cranky and wanting my goodnightbird nutriberri by like 7:00 these days . . .

  Heya, Sky!
I took a big bath this morning before Mom left for work. Then I climbed up to the top of the pantry door. Well, Mom did not want me all wet so she brought out the coolest little hair dryer, and blew it so that it would dry me off. Oh, now that was lovely. Took the wet off, and I finished up preening. Mom is so glad she did not have to be down at work early today, too. Guess my bath time makes her move slower. Wonder how that could be?

Have a super duper evening!

  Hi Sky
Yesterday Willie's lamp went out in the middle of the day. Mom looked at it, changed the bulb, which didn't fix the problem, then unplugged it. She looked more carefully and it looked like Mr. Willie chewed a piece of the cord, so she took it to be repaired today. The guy at the store thinks the tiny hole in the cord wouldn't have caused a problem so they will keep it and see what's wrong. While she was out, mom got new branch loppers today, because she can't find the ones she thought were here. Of course, we all know what will happen, right? As soon as she starts using the new ones, the old ones will show up. Well, so far, that hasn't happened. She used the new ones to chop down some rose branches that were too close to the mailbox, as well as a weed bush growing on the end of the yard. Then she got the hedge choppers and cut down some of the peony bushes. She took down the fountain, cleaned it and put it away for the winter. Then she put out the scarecrows and pumpkins. So far, no old branch loppers have made an appearance. She came inside because it got too damp and chilly to keep working out there. Now mom is ours for the rest of the day.
I hope you are having a good day today, getting lots of love and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

Happy Humpday ! It's pouring rain on us all day today and tomorrow - how very dreary ! Thank goodness my new lamp came yesterday - I love when the UPS guy comes to the door, I always yell HEY to him and he calls back !
I especially love when he brings something for me !

So I'll do some napping today while everyone is gone. Mom came home right after putting kids on the school buses yesterday with a headache and sore throat, thinking she was getting her first cold of the season. So daddy stopped for Chinese food on the way home so she wouldn't have to cook - and it worked ! Some wonton soup, a good night's sleep and she feels better this morning !

Hope all is well on your perch ! Have a great day - love to you, Cookie

Today is a pretty lazy day for all of us. Mom got her nails done, then came home to be with us. She carried in the African violets a while back because of the weather, so today she's closing the fountain, bringing in the rest of the house plants, and maybe planting the amaryllis and paper whites her friend left for her. There is still a Boston fern outside, as well as a succulent dish garden. We hope they have both survived the chilly nights lately. If not, well, there's always the nursery next year.
I hope you are having a good day today, and getting lots of sun, cuddles, and kisses. Hugs, Falco

  Hi mr. Sky
Today is mom's humpday - AND the rains start for the first of three days . . . cold rains - it's only in the 50's to low 60's :( I'll probably nap till mom gets home. I've made good progress on my box - not to the nut yet, but the confetti is gone, the leather is untied and the box has a few good sized holes !

Still trying to get used to it being fall - how did it turn into the 3rd week of October ? Jeepers !

Ah, Monday. Mom kinda overslept this morning. She really had to hustle for that morning meeting, and she was about 10 minutes late. She is soooo not a morning person! Other than that, it was nice out, with some sun for the morning hours. Got cloudy this afternoon, but so far no rain. We were around 58 at one point, but of course, the minute the sun goes down---well, that temp just does, too.

Hanging out on Mom, so will wish you a great night!! I think I better check out her ear and do a good preen.

  Hi Sky
I hope you entered the costume contest!
Yesterday, mom led 2 anthropology tours at the museum. Both were with college students from West Virginia University. Mom's first question to both groups was how many were hung over? WVU won their football game on Saturday, so there was some celebrating going on. She had fun with the college students, and both groups covered 3 desert cultures, Ancient Egypt, Inuits in Northern Canada from about 100 years ago, and modern Hopi Native Americans. The second group was more engaged, and seemed to have a better time with it. At the end of the second tour, they asked if mom had been a teacher, so she said yes. They hoped it wasn't at Pitt, to which mom replied that's where she got her Masters. One of the girls said she'd forgive mom for that, because everyone is entitled to a mistake now and again. Mom just laughed and laughed over that.
Today at the center, mom cleaned the RVS room and the squirrel porch. It was funny on the squirrel porch, there were 3 fox squirrels, including the one she fostered, 6 red squirrels, and about a dozen gray ones. The gray ones were in and out of each other's cages, having a ball. Mom couldn't get an accurate count! Hopefully they were all there.
I hope you are having a wonderful day, full of sunshine, love, and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

t's already here again ! And jeepers is it cold ! Mom spent a good part of the day dragging in plants since we were having our first freeze warning last night - and we sure did ! brrrrrrr . . .

Now it's back to school for mom, back to work for dad and back to my cage for me ! I finally scored a new shred and destroy toy from Palooza to play with. Of course I have to find a good place to do that first ! It's a small box (3x3x1) with confetti coming out the sides and a leather strip with wood pieces tied to the top . . . and guess what's inside ? A NUT ! !

Have a great day ! Love to all - Cookie

  Hi Poppa Sky
My Mom has been thinking about me running for BOTM while she was in her summer vacation. She had planned that somewhere from December to febuary was a good idea. I went to see Kiddo's page and the one for December to Jan. has been taken already. Jan to Feb works for her but she needs to take the spot before someone else does. Since Luigi passed away she has more on her mind now. What do you think?

Love you,

Wow. Mom and I watched the Packers game today (well, I did--she was doing stuff around the place so she did not sit down and watch-watch it). Great game. Lots of the folks she follows on Twitter were there, and they sure had a superb game to attend!

Not much else going on here, other than Mom getting herself ready for work tomorrow. She has to get that one form finished tonight, along with her ironing. Work never ends, it seems!

  Hello Poppa Sky
It's been three days since Luigi was gone, and it's all very hard on us. We will see him again when the time comes. I miss him very much, and it is extremely hard losing a brother. mom said that once plans in Lebanon are made she will have me move in Lebanon the summer that's coming where my aunt can take care of me. Mom can visit me every summer and take care of me. But she is still thinking about it because she would only be able to see me every summer and I wouldn't want to get lonely. Mom knows lebanon's climate is the best for parrot and there I can play outside and walk in the house and if I poop, she can just get the hose and wash it off! Her dad loved having parrots when he was young so he told mom that it was better to have birds there then here.

Love you Poppa,

The opera gala last night was wonderful, too bad it couldn't have lasted longer. Mom did hear lots of arias, duets, and ensembles that she loves, and they did a bit of operetta as well.
Mom's tour with college students turned out to be fun yesterday, and they wanted Dinosaur hall, which she loves. Today mom has 2 tours at the museum with West Virginia University students. Do you think she's trying to avoid the football game? I sure do. She got very upset with the team's loss last week, even though she didn't see the game.

It's Sunday - and it's getting chilly and windy here. Dad got up during the night to close windows :( So when mom got up (after sleeping in till almost 6:00 !), instead of getting right on line with her coffee like she usually does, she went out to start cleaning up the back deck. There's a freeze warning for tonight so all the plants have to be cleaned off (bugs) and dragged in before the end of the day . . .

Mom also has a little school work to get done which I'm hoping she'll let me assist with ! Math tests and compositions . . .

  Heya, Sky!
Love those pix of you in your gallery! You sure are happy--Mom loves those pix with your mouth open, just grinning away!

Mom did her 'put my head on the back of the chair' trick last night, so that is why we did not get over to say hi. She woke up around 1 a.m. and I hafta say that I was not a happy camper. I was sleeping under my toy ikea dish drainer, and I was glad she finally woke up so I could hit the perch. She really wanted to do stuff, but once the clock turned 10, she just could not keep her eyes open!

No market for me today. It only got up to 45 degrees. Mom said it was yucky when she was out and about. She went for a free facial--but they said that she could get that or get a peel. So she opted for the apple-wine peel. She came home and was kinda pink in the face. She says it she is curious as to how it will come out--she has not had one before. But it was nice to get a treat like that!

Not much else going on here. I am perched on Mom's shoulder and gosh, it sure is nice!!

Happy Saturday - mom is still remembering last Saturday and all the fun she had :) Today she and daddy went apple picking - and now I'm just waiting for my taste ! I do love apples.

We have a real fall weekend - by tomorrow the temperatures are supposed to drop into the 50's and stay there for the rest of the week, with more rain coming in midweek - Tomorrow is also mom's sister's birthday so the parronts may end up heading out for either lunch or an early dinner.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday - love you all ! Cookie

Today mom has a tour at the museum at 2, and the group has grown. She is not sure how many will be on the tour, because up until yesterday her boss at the museum was still asking for more docents.
Tonight it is opening night at the opera, and they're doing something different. This year, they are doing a gala affair, with excerpts from various operas, choruses and whole scenes. Mom thinks it's because it will be cheaper than putting on an opera. That means the season is cut to 4 performances and tonight's gala, instead of the 5 they normally do. Aunt Gin and mom are going together, so they will be eating at Pusadee's Garden, a great Thai restaurant on the way to the theater.
I guess that means we'll be in lockdown most of the day. I hope you have better luck, and can get lots of cuddles and love today. Hugs, Falco

  An important message from Dania, Luigi's owner
The very reason I had to come back on BC, is because of the death of my best friend Luigi. This news came across me when I was on the bus on the way home from school with my brother and his friends. He had told me the news, it wasn't funny and I couldn't help but cry no matter how much I held it back because a public bus was no place to cry. As I cried, I could see that his friends felt sorrow and others became quiet. My brother found out about this news when my mother came to talk to him early in the morning that when she went down in the basement to do laundry at 6 a.m., she had seen him dead at the bottom of the cage. She knew telling me this news would depress me. So as a came home with a very very heavy heart and a very shaky hand, I knew it had to be done. So my mother brought me a box, a size a bit too big, and I started filling the bottom with cottons while she helped me. As I went downstairs to the basement, I walked very slowly... the sight of Luigi lying down dead was a sight too much for me but I walked in with a sorrow face. My poor little bird, lying so in a way that he looked sad while clutching to the bar of the cage. I couldn't bear it but I toke the cage and opened it and got my brother to hold him and place him in the box. Before I could say goodbye, I pet his back, his feathers and for a moment I knew I was never going to see him again. But I was told it was better to love and die then to never love at all.

At the moment the box is closed and I am awaiting my father to come home so we may bury a hole to place him in it. His funeral will be in our backyard. And from there, I will take a moment with him to say goodbye.

This day Friday October 17, Luigi was seen dead at 6 am. His age is 3 and he was 5 months when I got him when I was 13.

My song for you Luigi, Whitney Houston I will always love you.

Come visit me, Angel Luigi...i will always love you, may u RIP & My brother i miss you!!! ;( -Calypso.

  Hi Sky
Mom put away most of the stuff from Parrot Palooza. She gave each of us a new toy, and Maxine got a new perch, but the rest of the stuff got put up. I suspect we'll see it a little at a time. Mom was pleased to find greeting cards there with birds, too.
Yesterday after mom planted all the bulbs, the irises, and the rudbeckia, she thought she was done. Later, when she went out to get the mail, she noticed that our neighbor Jeff had left more things to plant on the shelf by the door! It was all indoor stuff, though, 2 amaryllis bulbs and some narcissus.
Today at the center, mom went into the RVS room and saw a cage standing open. She went to get Bree, and they looked all over the room for the missing raccoon. They couldn't find him, so mom took his chart to the front, entered today as his self release day into the computer, and put the chart in a drawer for filing. She then helped a new person catch a squirrel who had gotten loose. When she went back to the RVS room the raccoon was on the bank of cages staring at her! She got Bree, and the two of them captured the little bugger and put him in a carrier until his cage was done. Mom put a carabiner on the cage to prevent him from opening it again. There were other raccoons and a bat in there today, so it took the rest of her time to clean them, feed them, and finally she emptied the dryer, reloaded it, loaded up the washer, and started a load. Now she's ours for the day! I think she's still catching up with some reading on the Nook, before she starts another real book. Tomorrow is the museum, the opera, and dinner out, so we have to take advantage of today.
I hope you are having a fine fall day, not too cold and rainy. I also hope you are getting lots of scritchies and kisses today. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Congrats to Kaji!, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Heya, Sky!
Wow. Mom had an interesting Thursday, and she hopes it is not repeated any time in the near future! First, she left this morning for work, and was wondering why there was all this traffic on the road. Then the folks on the radio said there was a car fire on the expressway that blocked two lanes of traffic. And the police blocked off the ramp Mom gets on the expressway to go to work. So she had to take another route, and that added 10 minutes on the drive. By the time she got to her parking structure, she was about 5 minutes later than she normally gets in. So she started up the structure, and saw one car coming back down. The second car she met coming down the ramp stopped, and the lady in it rolled down her window and told Mom there were no parking spots. Sure enough, they blocked off the upper 3 stories for the repair work. So she went back down and had to figure out where she could park. It was now 10 minutes later. She found a little surface lot, and had to cough up $12!! And she got in to work 5 minutes after she should have, and went to the meeting that was supposed to start at 8:45, and discovered it was cancelled. She figures tomorrow she will start out earlier, just in case. Then they had her favorite place by the lake blocked off for repairs. UGH!

The good part was that the rain stayed away. Still foggy, but not as bad. Mom saw a couple of breaks in the clouds and blue sky.

So there is a silver lining, isn't there?
Your buddy,
Kaji
