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
Mom got to the pool yesterday for an absolutely glorious summer day. Today it's supposed to thunder and rain, but it is looking good so far. Of course, this is Pittsburgh where the weather can change in 10 minutes. People around here can have the heat on in the morning, then the AC on for the afternoon, and umbrellas out for the evening.
We don't have a lot to write, hope you are having a great summer day and getting lots of cuddles and sunshine. Hugs, Peppino

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

  hi mr. Sky
Raise your wing if you saw mom on tv last night at the race . . . that's OK, I didn't either - but she had a super time ! The excitement in the air was incredible ! She tried to get pictures of AP but only got pictures of the backs of people's heads ! He was mobbed by his humans, his security, and fans . . . and mom is short ! It was so sad when he didn't win the race though . . . Mom won $4.20 when BigBeast placed in the Forego . . . she felt bad that he was saddled with such a name ! Not as intellectual as aunt Jane's picks, but it worked !

Today is another big day - the BC Adler BBQ at aunt Tanya's ! Mom can't wait to see them all again and aunt Tanya is only a little over an hour away - she promises to get more than the backs of heads with her camera this time !

Daddy will go check on the g'parronts and then come home early to me to play :) Hope you have a great day ! love Cookie

  Heya, Sky!
Mom is watching the Packers game...or rather the Packers getting injured. Cobb, Hyde and Bulaga are out with shoulder, neck and ankle injuries. It sucks. Brewers came from behind and led, now are losing. American Pharoah got beat. It is not a good day for sports.

Did not get to the farmers market either. Too chilly. Only 59, with rain and fog. Brr. Mom said I had to stay home cuz it was not warm enough. She was wearing a light jacket, so I guess she was right. Sigh.

Hope your day is much better!

  Hi Sky
This morning mom had a terrible time signing on to BC. It took at least a dozen tries from everywhere on the computer but we're here now!
We got a big surprise yesterday, thanks Uncle Chuck! Mom says they match the kitchen perfectly! And we love our new toys, too.
Well, Aunt Rose is on her way to meet us soon, and we know she's meeting lots of BC folks on the way here, too. It sounds like the ideal vacation to us.
It looks like a perfect summer day here, so we know where mom will be. At least for the afternoon, that is. Later on, she's ours. Tomorrow morning John comes to fix the wall for the backsplash and install the new floor. Mom told him to be here well before noon, so she can go to the pool, hahaha!
I hope you are having a great summer day with lots of good weather and cuddles, too. Hugs, Peppino

  morning !
Happy Saturday :) It's our last day of nice . . . tomorrow goes back to summer - sticky and hot ! That's supposed to last straight through the week . . . figures ! Mom goes in on Wed. and Thurs. for meetings !

The parronts are leaving me today to go celebrate daddy's birthday (which was last week) with mom's cousin Patti. Every year she gets them tickets for the Travers Race at Saratoga . . . only this year American Pharoh is running ! So exciting ! For mom and dad at least . . . me ? I'll be home watching tv and the wild critters out the back window. Mom and dad won't be home till 11:00 or maybe even midnight ! That's a late tucking in ! But at least they're coming home tonight - it's about a 3 hour drive . . .

So you have a great day ! See you tomorrow - love Cookie

  Heya, Sky!
Mom went over by Kim today and brought lunch over for her (Pad Thai) and they had a nice visit. Kim's knee is still sore, and she was not feeling too good. Mom came home after--she was going to go to the store but she decided not to when it started to rain a little. She says she can go to the store anytime now. And she brought me some Pad Thai and rice back--makes a guy happy! Love that stuff!

  Hi Sky
Today mom cleaned the avian nursery at the center. There were the usual suspects in there, pigeons, mourning doves, robins, sparrows, etc., but there were also some cool different birds; a couple of mockingbirds, a killdeer, a catbird, and a crow. It was a busy morning, and when she got home, it was warm enough to go to the pool, so that's where she spent the afternoon. Now she's ours for the rest of the day, YAY!
Still no word about the counter tops, and mom is really getting frustrated. She so hoped it would be done by now. John is coming to put the floor in and get the wall ready for the backsplash on Sunday, so that's some progress at least.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of good weather and cuddles. Hugs, Peppino

Busy, busy, busy here the next few days - I think mom is trying to cram the whole summer into just a few days ! Today the folks are visiting some friends in NJ, tomorrow they're going to Saratoga visiting mom's cousin Patty (not actually a cousin - when her parents were first married they lived in a two family house with Patty's family so the two grew up together). The best part of Saturday ? Every year they all go to Saratoga for the Travers for daddy's birthday ! ! Mom is actually going to get to see American Pharoh in person ! ! Then on Sunday mom is going to see aunt Tanya and aunt Rose and aunt Janet !

At least the weather is great and then mom promised to stay home with me ALL day Monday and Tuesday ! I wish you a great day :) I love you ! Cookie

Not a lot happening here. Nice outside, sunny at times, and we hit a high of 73. Nice to have the patio doors open again! Tomorrow will be nice again here, but thunderstorms are supposed to hit later in the evening. Don't care about that, as I know Mom will be home and I will be on her shoulder if that nasty lightening happens!

There's not much to report on today. Mom went to the gym and swam indoors again yesterday, since it never got out of the 60s here. Today she is getting a haircut, then later going out to dinner with her sister.
No news on the kitchen: the floor isn't in yet, and neither are the counter tops, so the tile isn't in place yet either. It's still taking up residence on the dining room table.
I hope you are having a fun day, getting in some summer sunshine and lots of love. Hugs, Peppino

  What a great time mom and dad had at the fair yesterday - mom took lots of pictures - some video of the pig races too ! Maybe she'll post those later on FB for everybird to see (just to get in the mood for our next Milonga !) They got to see all the animals (Landon's favorite part was feeding them), he and mom rode a camel (!), they saw a brand spanking new baby calf, and all the antiques. Mom loved that the horticulture theme this year was lights, camera, action so all displays were tv and movie related. There was even a minion made out of daisies ! Daddy loved the food ! har har har ! Landon and his mom left around 4:00 so mom and dad ate and then saw the Doobie Brothers - they're old men now ! YIKES ! Still it was a good show and they did all their old 70's songs . . .

Today we're staying home - mom wants to clean the carpets before heading back to school - they're pretty yucky. She thinks it's my fault . . . I say it's daddy's ! !

  Heya, Sky!
7700 for you!!

We are so far below the normal temps, Mom had to put on the radiator heater for me! We got to a high of 64. It was dull and overcast all day until around 6, when the sun came out. Mom and I took a nap--and when the sun started to come out a little, I decided I would snore a bit so Mom would wake up. Did it once. Nothing. Did it again, nothing. Tried it again. She made the whistling sound that happens when someone snores. So I did it one more time and she whistled, and then she was laughing. Of course, I had to take a bath after that. Mom says I have more feathers and feather dust, so she knows how good it feels to get clean.

Just another wonderful day with Mom!

OH! The Milwaukee Lion is back! Two sightings so far! It is a mountain lion according to the sighting today. It is in Mequon, which is a suburb to the north/northwest of the city. Both sightings were in the early morning, and were in the same general location (about a 20 minute drive from where Mom lives). The areas are very close to the Little Menomonee River Parkway and the Mequon Nature Preserve. Great areas to hide in, for sure.

Those guys are still working outside in the yard. Hope they are finished today.
Mom got the filler piece for the kitchen, let the guy know, but he doesn't think he'll make it until next week. Mom is now resigned to the fact that the kitchen may not get done in time for company. The floor, the counter tops, and the backsplash still need to be installed, and the floor isn't in yet. Oh well, we can still enjoy our company, since we'll be running around, hopefully, and seeing the sights here in town.
Mom swam yesterday in the indoor pool, since it wasn't very warm outside. It never got into the 70s yesterday. Today it's supposed to get to 70, so it still looks like another indoor swim kind of day.
I hope you are having a great summer day with lots of good weather and cuddles. Hugs, Peppino

Another perfect summer day here except for the fact that I'll be alone :( Mom and dad and the niece are taking the g'nephew, Landon, to the county fair. Mom can't wait to see the craft tents - Landon wants to see the animals and go on some rides - and daddy wants to eat junk food ! If they're not too tired, mom and dad will stay for the concert tonight - the Doobie Brothers are there and both parronts remember them from their youth !

I sure hope you guys are enjoying the cooler weather ! We're supposed to go back to summer next week ! I guess we should enjoy it - Farmer's Almanac says it's going to be another tough winter :( UGH !

We are in October weather. We made it to 60 today. Of course, we are supposed to be near 90 on Monday. Mom says it is definitely Wisconsin weird weather again. Needless to say, I have been on Mom the great majority of the day. Can't help it--she is warm!

Yesterday was a great day at the pool, then mom came back here to finish our blogs and spend a little time with us before going to Aunt Ginny's for dinner. We didn't get any time out of our cages when she got back, though, because it was late. She just fed the dogs and they all went to bed. Tonight is ours, mom promised.

Yesterday turned out nice - daddy thanks everybird for their happy birthday wishes ! I even took a bath for the occasion :) The berry shortcake sure was yummy - me and mom make a great team in the kitchen ! And berries make beautiful wall decorations ! har har har !

A few scattered showers today so mom is only going as far as the library later on. It's supposed to clear up later so that we can have a cookout. We're trying to squeeze as many as possible in before mom goes back to school and the days get cooler and shorter . . .

Have a wonderful toosday ! love you ! Cookie

There are some guys from the borough digging in the back at the bottom of a cliff, into some sewers. They came and knocked on the door this morning to let mom know what was going on. When she got back from the center, they were sitting on the bench in the yard and hadn't tried to go down the cliff yet.
Not much new here today. Mom did the recovery room today, and there were just turtles, ducks, and pigeons in there, so no big thrill. The wood turtle is so handsome, with his orange body and pretty eyes. The snapping turtle let mom pick him up out of his pond so she could change the water, too. She usually has good luck with snappers, though. This afternoon mom and her sister are going to Olympic gym to sign up for a month of swimming. It should stretch out the summer for a few more weeks, at least.
Update: mom had a great time at the pool, now to get ready for dinner with Gene and Aunt Ginny.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of sunshine, warm weather, and love. Hugs, Peppino

Yesterday was perfect ! After a bit of marketing, mom stayed home to read and hang out with me - the only other thing she did was one load of laundry :)

Today is daddy's birthday so me and mom are going to make a berry shortcake - mom picked up not only strawberries yesterday, but blackberries, raspberries and blueberries too ! I can't wait to help with that ! ! ! har har har :) Of course I love opening presents too - and I know daddy will need my help with the wrapping paper !

You have a fun day too :) love Cookie

Mom was really unhappy with the BC last night. They must have done something that affected our area, or who know what? Weird. Glad it is working today. Must not have affected everybirdie, though. It was a great Milonga, wasn't it? Those water balloon fights were so much fun! And it sure was a grand turn out!!!

Rain this morning, and now we are at 68, with low humidity and dew points. A taste of early fall Mom says. Good snuggle weather I say!

The milonga was so much fun last night! Super soakers, water balloons, paddleboats, jet skis, all that great food, and of course, all the great company made it a night to remember! It was also good to see the new faces there. Thanks to Kiddo, Sweetpepper, Taz, Kaji and Lizzie, and Sam for the great time. The Scruffy birds played great beach songs, they sounded fantastic.
Today is looking like another pool day (yay), and the last whole day until next weekend. The rest of the week they will open at 3:30 when the kids are out of school. Mom and her sis are thinking of joining the Olympic for a month. It's a local gym that has both indoor and outdoor pools, and Mary, the owner, keeps the outdoor pool open as long as she can through September, and sometimes even into October.
I hope you are having a wonderful summer day, full of good weather and lots of love and playtime. Hugs, Peppino

Me and mom will be busy today getting ready for daddy's birthday tomorrow . . . I can't decide whether he prefer I make one of his shirts lacey, or I make some lovely shredded paper piles . . . or maybe both !

What a great Milonga last night - one of the very best, if I might say. Thanks for all the fun Kiddo, Taz, Kaji and Lizzie, Sam and the Scruffy Birds, and of course all the moms that helped make the pictures :) You guys are the best ! !

John painted the kitchen last night, and mom unwrapped one of the tiles to see how it looked. It's a nearly perfect match with the light blue! He also put up a new LED light fixture. He thinks mom will never have to change that light in her life, from what it says on the package. Mom has a refund coming from the counter people, but she has to go to Home Depot to show them her credit card again. She may buy more LED lights when she goes, because they are really bright and environmentally friendly.
Today and tomorrow look like pool days, though. They are the last whole days of pool time until next weekend, so mom will take advantage. There is a local Greek restaurant where she and her sis will go tonight, too. That means we won't have our out of cage time until after dinner, but we'll get it then.
I hope you are having a perfect summer day, getting lots of sunshine and love. Hope to see you tonight at the milonga! Hugs, Willie

  The air feels so good here ! The humidity has dropped and so has the temps - in fact we haven't had to turn on the a/c in a couple days :) Mom went to school yesterday and put the finishing touches on her decorating. Now she's done except for things with names, and doesn't have to return till Sept. 2 for her meetings !

Then, I ended up playing with mom's grand-nephew yesterday - the lady who usually watches him while mom's niece works (retail) fell and hurt her knee. Since it was his mom's last day (she starts a new job on Sept. 8 in an insurance office - better, more regular hours), she couldn't call out. After dinner last night she and daddy and Landon went to the park to play on the playground ! Do you know how many years it's been since mom climbed monkey bars and slid down slides ? I would have loved to see that ! har har har !

Today of course is visit the g'parronts day - but mom promised she'd be home in plenty of time to play and bring me to Milonga :) See you ! love Cookie

Today is a great day, sunny and warm, perfect pool weather! Mom went there after the wildlife center. At the center, she had to clean turtle pens and waterfowl pens. There are 5 outdoor waterfowl pens, 3 with geese and 2 with ducks. One of the little ducks got out when mom opened the door. She tried to catch it, but couldn't. Of course, it was the one day mom was outside without a walkie talkie, so she had to go back to the building to get help. With 2 people it's fairly easy to wrangle a duck. They got her back in with her buddies and it all worked out, but mom has learned to check her pocket and make sure that walkie is in there from now on.
Mom came home from the pool a little early to be here when John came to paint. He's bought a new light fixture and will install that today, too! It has an LED light in it, so it shouldn't need changing any time soon. By tonight there should be a coat or 2 of paint on the walls and a new light in the kitchen. Mom is sort of sorry to see the old one go, because it's a fan and light, but the fan doesn't clear the top cabinets, and mom is just the person to break both the fan and the cabinet door by opening it when the fan is running. She and John figured it's safer to lose it!
I hope you are having a wonderful summer day, getting lots of good weather and cuddles. Hugs, Peppino

Hooray for Friday ! It means mom finishes up in her room today - she has only her eggs to put in the nest outside her door (4H is "egg"ceptional). Everything else like her job board baseballs (Pitch In), the cupcakes for her birthday board and the the fall leaves for the kids to decorate, daddy is working on cutting over the next week . . . that means she doesn't have to go back now till Sept. 2 for her faculty meetings . . .

Good thing too - next week is a busy one at our house ! Hope you have a great day today - love Cookie

  Hi Sky
It's another muggy day here, and it looks like it's going to rain any second. Mom had her eye appointment this morning so her eyes are still dilated. If we make spelling errors, it's because mom can't see yet. She did not need an injection, YAY! Mom has to go to work at the museum tonight so she's particularly happy about not having a scratchy eye today.
Tonight, it's 4 mini tours in North American Wildlife, back to back from 6 to 8. Mom isn't sure about the group, but it sounds kind of exciting. Mom was thinking she could do 4 separate tours there in that time.
I hope you are having a great day today, with sun and low humidity, cuddles, and scritches, too. Hugs, Peppino

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

Just one more steamy day . . . by tonight the storms are supposed to arrive and hopefully cool things down !

Mom just about finished her room ! She definitely be done by tomorrow. Today she'll do the final two bulletin boards (she has 5 in her room - 2 large and 3 small) and the hallway, then tomorrow just organizing - that will leave her free till she goes on the 2nd and 3rd for meetings.

I had just a teeny tiny bath yesterday - mom took it away since all I was doing was filling up my measuring cup with water and trying to toss it out onto the floor ! har har har ! Doesn't she realize messes are fun ?

Have a great Thursday ! Love you - Cookie

  Heya, Sky!
Last night we had two EF-1 Tornadoes touch down in Lake Geneva and a little further north in Big Bend. That is about 40 miles away from here. Tons of trees were downed, and power lines were down. Roofs were blown off buildings. But the twister went on a path between two hotels, and they were not affected. BETWEEN two hotels. Yowsa.

The winds picked up here today, and we are now in the 60's, with super low dewpoints and humidity. Mom opened the patio doors, and had to close the living room one cuz it is actually chilly! Tomorrow and Friday should be lovely. Sounds good to me!

Your buddy,
Kaji
