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.

  Hey Sky
A story for you...

***THE MOON AND THE COYOTE****
There was a very lonely coyote,She would go to the hills every full moon and talk to the moon. She fell in love with the moon...
One night she went to the hills and told the moon I love you. You are so beautiful !!! She hung her head and walked away. Suddenly she heard a soft voice say I love you too coyote...She turned around and the moon was standing behind her.
The moon and the coyote got married and had a beautiful son the color of his father...
They were so happy together !!!

One night a band of Warriors got lost trying to find their way home. They called on the creator to guide them home.The creator was angry !!! Where is the moon he asked ??? The Warriors told him we don't know.

The creator found the moon and the coyote and he said moon you are to stay where I put you. The creator raised his arms and the moon went back into the sky never to come down again.
The coyote and her son would go to the hill and howl to the full
moon to come back to them out of sorrow. All of her grand children and great,great grand children and the upcoming generations would howl at the full moon forever.
That is why the coyote howls at the moon...

Happy 4th of July
Love
Panther

  Hi Sky
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, USA!
We got rain overnight, and this morning it was really overcast when mom walked the dogs. She came home, made the deviled eggs, came up here to the computer, and it's now getting sunny! That's great, it looks like a pool day after all. After the pool she is going to her daughter's for a cookout, then back with us. No fireworks for us, Daisy will freak out if she's here alone and hears those loud noises. Hope you have a great day for your 4th of July plans, and that all goes well. Hugs, Peppino

No TGIF in this house for a couple months ! The weather was perfect yesterday and our rain came overnight - just like in Camelot ! I had a great time playing while mom did some reading - in between she picked up toys I tossed to her or gave me a skritch :)

Today she and dad are off running a couple errands - neither wants to go near a store over the weekend. I'll need my sugar snap peas and maybe even some blueberries - the farm market is closed tomorrow . . .

Have a great day :) love Cookie

  Heya, Sky!
Mom put me in my house all day--she and Kim went shopping at the new Meijer store in Grafton today. Nice big store, great produce. They had WATERMELON WITH SEEDS! So Mom had to pick some up and bring it home to me--oh, yum! Love it.

It was sunny all day here, and cool. That was good, cuz we didn't need the air on. And it should be good sleeping weather, too. That is if Mom had no moved my house with me in it by accident tonight--scared the heck out of me. So now I am on her shoulder, and she hopes that I will go back in the house--she is tired, and would love to go to sleep...but she will keep me on her shoulder until she is done with the blogs.

Have a great rest of the night, and wing hugs coming your way!

  Hey Sky Thanks for your votes...
Today I'm taking you to the Northern Cheyenne rez in Lame Deer Montana...
This is where the people of the Big sky comes from... My tribe The northern Cheyenne...

When our creator made all things that are good and living such as our four legged brothers with fur,our brothers with wings and beaks,our brothers with scales and fins and our brothers who
crawl.He sent them from father sky to mother earth. He then made a man and a woman...They were sent to earth from the stars.
All animals are our relations.And we start our prayers with all our families and relations...We are all made from the same creator !!! So there you have it !!!
My tribe is considered to have the most beautiful people of all Native American tribes...
We are not farmers or sheep herders...We are Warriors and hunters. Living off our own land that the creator blessed us with.
My tribe is considered to be very friendly but have short tempers and will fight at the drop of a hat !!!
The boy's in my tribe are considered to be men at the age of 8 years old and they will go in the sweat lodge to be blessed with a man's name by my medicine man.After we have been blessed and given our name we can then go out to battle with the Warriors.
The girls at birth are named names like Sweet Woman,Sun Woman etc.There is always a woman at the end of their names.
Most last names have the word big in front of it like mines Bigfoot, Big left Hand etc...
We are taught at a very young age to have respect for all living things.And all things have life in them. And come from the earth. Such as aluminum etc...A properly raised child will not kick a can or throw a rock cause it has living minerals and life in it.As so does the water.
My Tribal protocol is strict and the women must always carry them self in a proper way.
Warriors carry them self with pride and honor and they protect the women and children with a great fierceness...
Northern Cheyenne men only have one wife and we do not eat dogs like the other tribes heehee !!!

Or social gatherings are called Powwow's. And we also have special days to honor our elders...
We love and respect our elders and treat them like diamonds.
An elder is never left without a family with in our tribe. If they have no family or no one to take care of them they will be taken care of by a family so they can have a happy life knowing they are loved and cherished...
There's so much more with so little time to talk about. I will update you on certain things as we go along.
Friday I will start Story telling and after that courting and marriage protocal. Something I know Kiddo And Sweet Pepper will love...
My bro Raffi and the single guys will love to learn how to do a traditional courtship !!!
Sky can learn a few things too.Instead of waiting on BB'S wedding date he can do a trick marriage heehee !!!

I need to know who are the most oldest birds on BC...
There will be something very special for them.

Love
Panther Bigfoot

Well, our rain finished and it looks like we're in for a terrific stretch of weather :) Of course that means I need to find a way to keep mom home - the folks are heading up to the g'parronts today to do the yard work and shopping for them since it's a holiday weekend and they want to go to West Point for the 4th and the flea market on Sunday . . . do you see the problem here ? Although mom did get to the library yesterday so she's at some point going to hang out with me and read :)

And speaking of the 4th . . . how many songs celebrating our country do you know ? Go to NAME THAT TUNE on page 231616 to find out !

Have a terrific Thursday ! love you :) Cookie

  Heya, Sky!
Happy Canada Day!

I got my toenails and my one primary flight feather trimmed today. The tech said that I was grumbling at her all the while, where I usually am very quiet. I was great on the way home, and did not growl at Mom at all! And of course, I have been velcroed to her pretty much all afternoon. Plus, it is chilly here--sunny, but only in the low, low 60's. What is up with that?

My name is Panther Bigfoot...I am the grandson and of many generations of the Northern Cheyenne Native American Tribe.
My big brother Kevin Bigfoot is my owner.He is in the U.S Army and he fights for us and our freedom...

game in which my big brother played football for...
One dark and cold night I came out of the dark still a baby...
I was cold and starving and needed help.

All the accounts are real and as a baby I used to listen to our elders tell us about the real truth.
All these words are spoken from generation to generation and have not changed.

Well, mom did manage a couple of hours at the pool yesterday because it got kind of sunny around 1. Then she, her sister and brother in law went to dinner and to Barnes and Noble in the pouring rain. She had coupons and so did her sis, and it was Barnes and Noble, after all.
Mom was laughing yesterday too, because of the spice cabinet. Do you want to take a guess at how many ancient spices were in the back? Mom was shocked! There were also some extracts in there that dated from when she was teaching and used them in science classes. They're gone now, since she's been retired for 16 years.
One cupboard down, several more to go, but mom is doing it slowly.
Today is the anniversary of the day Gizmo left us, so mom has been thinking of him. Then she saw his avatar on the calendar page and kind of lost it for a little bit. I think she'll be okay now, though.
It's really overcast again today, but it's supposed to clear up by noon. If so, you know where mom will be, and if not, she'll be back in that kitchen.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of good weather, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Well, mom and my Laura got home by noon yesterday after their shopping . . . then she and daddy went grocery shopping ! REALLY ? They did come home with some yummy blueberries and strawberries though :)

At least today mom is staying home :) I just finished a late (big humongous thunderboomers at dawn knocked out power till just a little while ago) breakfast and daddy is getting ready to head into ZooYork City . . .

  Heya, Sky!
Well, today was overcast all day until the afternoon. Mom says of course--it makes it very hot in the apt. and she has to turn on the air. Of course, it was also very humid outside, too. She did her exercises this morning, and it took her forever to get her hair dry after she did her shower! I have been showing with her--mainly to try to steal some water from the hand held she uses. But she washes my feet with the water, and that is lovely.

Mom had her phone interview with MillerCoors today, and they wanted to see writing samples from Mom. She would not mind this job--it is only for a couple months, which is fine. Three guys were on the phone in the interview! So we will find out if she is going to be working or not. I hope not. She doesn't really care, but the extra money would be nice. Then she could retire. Hehe. She is worried though, as Kim would have to find someone else to take her to the doctors--and that would not be good. Guess we will see what happens.

Wing hugs coming your way!

  Hi Sky
Yesterday when mom got back from the pool after a couple of hours, it started raining. It rained off and on all night long. It's sort of overcast right now too, and we think it's going to rain again today. This is getting old! We've had more rain in June than normal. It's the last day of June, though, so maybe July will bring better weather.
Since mom got her nails done on Sunday, if it rains today, she'll start packing up the kitchen. I know it's still a couple of weeks away, but she figures a little at a time will be better than trying to do it all at once.
I hope you are having a good day, summery weather and lots of cuddles and love. Hugs, Peppino

Not much going on here today. Mom looked for jobs, applied for one. She has a phone interview for another job tomorrow--which she is not that interested in, but it only runs to the end of September, so that would be okay. She is tired of trying to find 4 jobs a week to apply for--they are all the same one but with different companies. And then she worked on her friends Google Plus web page and got that done. And Mom and I just snuggled a lot.

What a fun milonga it was. The music by Sam and the Scruffy birds was perfect, the food by Lizzie was delicious, Kiddo and Taz made a wonderful party happen once again. Thanks to everybirdie who made it possible. Congratulations to the winners in the picture contest, too. It was tough voting, we voted for everyone, so probably didn't help anyone to win, but all of the pics were so creative.
It's another cool rainy day today. Mom may go for her mani/pedi or she may find something to do here, like start packing up the kitchen. You never know with her.
I hope you are having a fun day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches, as well as some fine summer weather. Hugs, Peppino

It felt so good to be home again last night even though it rained all day long :( Mom says she hopes the whole summer isn't like this - rain, no power, dentist, more rain - what a start !

Congratulations to all the winners last night - I had such a tough time voting everyday cause I just wanted to vote for everybird ! A special thanks shouted out to Kiddo and Taz, Sam and the Scruffy birds, and Sweetpepper and Lizzie for the great eats ! what a night !

Last night mom's nephew came to check the electricity in the kitchen. There is already a dedicated line for the stove, so he just needs to put in a few GFI outlets and it will be ready. Mom gave him a picture of the tile so he can match colors when he looks for flooring. To think this all started because mom wanted to replace cabinets! Now it's a whole kitchen makeover.
Update on the peregrine: He seems to favor one leg, so when the vet checks him out, hopefully he will find something that can be fixed.
It's a rainy day, with rain predicted for the next several days, so no pool or outdoor work will happen. Mom and the dogs got soaked on their shortened walk this morning.
We are looking forward to the milonga tonight, it should be a grand time at the Renaissance Faire! Our flock is ready to see what they can do tonight. Hope to see you there! Hugs, Peppy

Today is as short note for two reasons - one, mom is complaining about being on g'pa's ancient and slow as molasses dial up 'puter, and two, tonight is Milonga and I have to rest up !

When mom came home from the dentist yesterday the power was out ! ! She called the power company and they were doing work on the lines and expected it to be back by midnight ! ! MIDNIGHT ? YIKES ! So as soon as daddy got home we packed up and traveled to the g'parronts for a sleepover . . .

hope to see you tonight from out on an adventure Cookie

It has been a glorious afternoon, after a somewhat gloomy morning. Mom thought she'd have to stay home again today, after she got back from the center, but the sun came out, so she went to the pool for a couple of hours.
If you check out my gallery, you can see one of the newest patients at the wildlife center. It's a fledgling peregrine falcon! It glided down onto the Pitt campus yesterday from the nest on the Cathedral of Learning, a student spotted it, called a teacher, who called the Game Commission. They captured it and brought it to the center, where is is being evaluated. It is missing some secondary flights on the one wing, so they are going to have a vet look on Tuesday and go from there. The staff thinks there is new feather growth, so hopefully this baby is a short term patient and will be able to be released.
Mom cleaned that cage as well as all the others in the recovery room today. There are several ducks, mostly mallards, eastern box turtles, and a pigeon. The room is totally full!
The pool was quite refreshing today,as well. Mom and her sis ate at Red Lobster last evening, great meal.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and playtime. Hugs, Peppy

but everyday is that now ! Except that mom has a dentist appointment this morning to replace a filling (from childhood) that has a crack . . . then maybe a few errands before the rains come - they're coming in for whole weekend ! That should keep her home !

Mom saw the first goldfinch of the season in the yard last night . . . and the Baltimore oriole was back too :) And of course, there are more red wing blackbirds this year than she's seen in many years . . . good eats here I guess !

Have a great Friday and give everyone my love - Cookie

Mom went to take Kim to the doctor today. They had lunch first at the Indian place. Gosh, Mom does love their food. She loved the chicken tikka masala today, and they had a lentil dish that was yummy. After the doctors appointment, and after a downpour that they missed, Kim and Mom went to Wally World so Kim could pick up some things she needed. It was a long day, with Mom getting home about 6 PM. Kim was totally wiped out after all that, and Mom was beat, too.

Should be in the mid 60's tomorrow. Cooler is okay--as long as it not humid!

  Hi Sky
Last evening mom had her appointment at Home Depot to finalize the kitchen plans and put in all the orders (which she thought were put in last week when she paid for them). Now we're waiting for the cabinets to arrive and the work to begin. We are not looking forward to emptying the kitchen and having a big mess for weeks, but the result should be worth it. The guy even figured out the square footage for the backsplash, because mom wanted to make sure she had ordered enough tile. She got the cream and cobalt tiles to go with the designed ones. They will all be shipped at the end of July. Mom also bought the stove and microwave last night, since their fourth of July sale started. It's a pretty basic gas stove and the microwave has a hood under it for exhaust. It should all work out all right.
Now to paint the remaining wall and get the floor done, and it will be a completely new kitchen.
Mom is going to dinner tonight with her sister, and maybe (if it clears up) to the pool this afternoon. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi mr. Sky
It's done ! And now it's a whole summer of Cookie and mom time ! OK, well except for all the errands, appointments and visits . . . starting today in fact. Mom's car goes in for an oil change, inspection, and brakes . . . sounds like she'll be spending a lot of my toy and treat money ! At least she'll be home :)

After picking up around here some (she blames me, but I think it's daddy making spit balls out of calculator paper and shredding those tissues and boxes), she wants to work on some thank you cards.

She wanted to start yesterday since it was a half day - a perfect summer day - warm sunshine, no humidity - no power either ! Who knows why it was off - but it was for several hours and by the time it came back on, it was time to start supper.

I hope you have a great Thursday :) love Cookie

  Heya, Sky!
We were grey and in the 70's today. Wind shifted off the lake so it dropped down to 74 in the afternoon. Still feels sticky, too. Can smell rain coming our way. UGH.

Had a greyt day with Mom. She puttered around the house, and did some laundry. She also did a different exercise DVD--Pilates this time. She forgot how many muscles you use doing that. She probably won't be able to move tomorrow! Hehe. She better, cuz she has to take Kim to the doctor. They will go out for lunch before the appointment, and eat at the Indian place. Good food there. She wishes they would have more vegetarian fare--they have some lentil dish that is awesome, and another with chickpeas...oh yummy, she says. Eh, I am not used to chickpeas or lentils. Give me my sugar snaps!

Wing hugs coming your way!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Sky
Congratulations to the winners of the dolphin races, and to all the participants, too. It sure was fun.
Yesterday there were showers and thunderstorms all day long, until early evening. Poor Daisy is practically living in her thunder shirt.
Mom got a call from Home Depot saying they got the installer estimate back, so she's going up there tonight to sign and finalize. Hopefully they can get started as soon as the cabinets arrive. Mom isn't sure where to put the cabinets, on the porch or in the garage (and she'll park in the driveway). Guess it depends on how soon they can start once the stuff gets here.
Today looks like the perfect pool day so far. It's already mid 70s and should hit mid 80s by the afternoon.
I hope you are having a fun day, filled with cuddles and love. Hugs, Peppino

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

  For the next couple months
my days will be much like yours, Kaji, cause here it is ! The day I've been waiting for ! Mom's final day to work till September - in just a few short hours she'll be all mine ! OK, maybe I'll share her with daddy too . . .

We had some wicked storms rip through late yesterday afternoon with really loud KA-BOOMS ! Right after them it seemed steamier (if that's possible), but waking up this morning the air feels fresh and drier too. By the weekend it's supposed to only be in the low 70's !

We too, were very sad about Mandy leaving this world. But we need to remember that Sugar's and aunt Eileen's and our sorrow is Mandy's joy as she is now able run free again unencumbered . . .

Love to all on this humpday ! Cookie

  Heya, Sky!
It was cooler here today--no outside time, but it was wonderful to have the windows open and be able to get some of the breeze inside. Mom did have to put the air on when the sun came our way in the afternoon, though. It was toasty enough to get me to take a huge bath, and make a HUGE flood of water on my playgym. That was awesome. Then I got my quick towel off the wet, and Mom used the little blow dryer to get more wet off. Then it was snuggle time on her shoulder. So awesome!!

Not much else going on around here. Mom did iron some clothes today and she dyed her feathers, too. I loved the ironing. Not the feather dying--not able to be on her shoulder!

Wing hugs coming your way!
Your buddy,
Kaji
