  Saturday Flitzer
Hello.
A nice week here in Buffalo - warmer, with a little rain. Now it's going to be cooler, but not too bad.
--
Dad is making preparations for his May trip to see Grandma in Kentucky. He will be there for Mother's Day and on Derby Day as well. [I'm suggesting a flowered hat, but he doesn't like the idea].
When Grandma calls on Sunday I call to her, sometimes making their conversation hard to hear.
"I'm here, Grandma, it's me, Flitzer". She often wonders how Dad can live with me. Ha-Ha.
--
Aunt Kathy, the bird-sitter will be checking in on me, while Dad is away.
Last time, we were both miserable to each other. Dad is asking me to PLEASE TRY and be good. We shall see...

Uncle Geno came by for a late-evening movie on TV. Enjoyed his visit, but it was my bedtime and I flew to my hut. Daddy was sad that I didn't stay longer and socialize - but a bird has to keep his schedule, right?

We are experiencing problems with the internet a lot lately - the weather's been damp, and that always affects our connection - silly "modern" problems.

Dad n Uncle Geno watched "MULHOLLAND DR." for the first time last night. Well, they weren't bored, but they're not sure they understood it at all. Dad's been told it is a "must-see"...so now he considers it "seen". Ha

Nice in Buffalo this weekend, although next week will be hot n muggy again.

I had a bout of night terrors last night - and kept "flittering" off my perch.
Daddy tried to calm me down but at first I "flittered" out of his hands.
Finally he got me - took me into his room and calmed me down.

I rarely get these, but it's scary for Dad and I both when it happens.

I already wrote to Sherman and Peabody, so I'll direct this one to you. Tell mom locking herself out in the summer is one thing, in the winter, it's a totally different thing altogether. She should put the key around her neck on a string, like the little ones do!
Mom T got the wrong number? I hope they are going to pay her. Even though she was late showing up, it wasn't her fault. Well, not much new. Are you going to the KB to give your flockmates hugs and kisses? We will head over there when we finish blogging. Hugs to all of you, Falco

Thanks for joining us for the big games yesterday. That home theater room in the castle is wonderful, isn't it? We are going ice skating today, down at the pond by the kissing booth. If you want to join us you may. Later, we are going to the magic table to eat, so you can think of any food you like or want and the table will provide it for you.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, King Peppino

Tell the bigheads that twist ties on the food portals may help to prevent an escape, but maybe not... That's funny, they saw Willie and thought it was my royal portrait...
Today we are going to the home theater wing of the castle to watch the games. It should be a fun day, there are lots of comfy reclining seats, cup holders, and little snack tables for every birdie to have his or her favorite snacks. The screen is huge, too, so we will be able to see both games in excruciating detail, haha.
I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday, let's all root for our favorite teams today in anticipation of the Super Bowl! Hugs, King Peppino

We're not sure what the living arrangements are, but she is a Russian Orthodox nun. She sure is talented, too. Maybe the Ps live in the convent, or maybe she has her own place, as some nuns do, even the RC ones.
Those mirrors were sure fun yesterday. I loved the one that made me look tall! Willie liked the one that made him look wavy. Today we are going to visit the wildlife center here on the castle grounds. We can see what animals are here, and see if we can help out. We can all shred paper to take there before we go, too, it's good bedding for some of the animals!
Today mom had a tour with PreK kids, 4 and 5 years old. They were actually well behaved, had parent/teacher chaperones who kept them in line. It was an animal tour, and they saw pretty much the whole second floor.
When mom got home, she walked the dogs, then came upstairs to work on her outline for the docent class. She has decided to eliminate arthropods (too broad for the time limit) and fish (not enough are represented in the museum), and concentrate on the other vertebrate families. So she wrote up an outline for the amphibians, then started on reptiles, but only snakes and lizards so far. Then she looked at the time and decided we needed our blogging time, thank goodness!!!
Last night mom went to the Thai Place for dinner with Aunt Gin. When she got there (first), she ordered tea and an appetizer, figuring that it would arrive when Aunt Ginny did. The waiter asked her if she was in the right restaurant! Apparently they get a lot of customers who come in to wait, then realize they actually wanted the Chinese restaurant next door! Anyway, mom said if they served Thai food, she was in the right place. And Aunt Gin and the appetizer arrived simultaneously. After a lovely spicy Thai dinner, they went to see Selma. It is a wonderful movie, very touching. It was a short snippet from the life of MLK, just from the time he got the Nobel prize until the march from Selma to Montgomery took place. The audience was a diverse mix, with about equal numbers of black, white, old, and young people in attendance. Mom remembers those days so it was particularly touching. At the end, they showed what happened to some of the main characters, and for the march scene, they interspersed some of the actual march footage with the movie. It was well worth seeing.
I hope you are having a bright sunshine filled day, we sure are, even though it's another one of those luke(look)warm days. Get lots of scritches today! Hugs, King Peppino

She's the parront of Poirot (the grey penguin, heehee), Pepper, and Pringle here on BC, but she's hardly ever on any more. She is a good artist, don't you think? Last year she did a head shot of Willie and sent it to mom, so when mom saw on FB that she was offering 5x7 portraits in color, she ordered them of me and Falco, too. Now all 3 of us are hanging in her bedroom in glorious color. If you want something done, message her on FB, she'll be sure to please! Hugs, King Peppino

I bet your bigheads were glad it wasn't just them, but Marie does have a particularly big beak! It's a tough problem to solve, but they can teach her, we hope. Mom worked with Willie for about 2 years after one of our neighbors taught him to bite. (And this morning, he nailed mom right above the lip.)
Mom took the buttons to the center today and found out what they will use them for. It's not for the animals at all! They want buttons for craft activities in the education department. The new educator has ideas that kids can do crafts after the programs, so the buttons will be used for things like eyes, decorations, etc. Mom likes the idea of repurposing something that is still useful.
Mom is going to take this Friday off from the center too. A world famous paleontologist, Phil Currie from Alberta, Canada, will give a lecture to the docents on Friday at noon. It will be about Cretaceous dinosaurs, and mom already told them at the center that this is an opportunity she can't miss. Mom took the Coursera course on dinos last year, and Phil Currie was one of the presenters. She had made plans to take a friend to lunch that day, too, but that was easy to reschedule.
Not much going on today, but mom is going to dinner and a movie tonight to celebrate her birthday with Aunt Ginny. They will go to mom's favorite Thai restaurant on that side of town (mom has more than one favorite), then go see Selma.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of warm cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Awwwww, thanks ... I love diamonds!
Mom says she saw that blue and lavender bird on FB. But now, she can't find it ... saw other pics and will send them. Don't blame you for being careful and going to good breeder.
Oh oh, Marie isn't happy that her daddy's were gone so long. It will probably take a few days for her to get over it.
Please put up Sherman & Peabody's page on the BC ... so we can chat.
If your mom's want to ... they can come down to FL for a visit ... we have room and a pool!
Today was sunny with no snow ... YAY! We had a high of 18 and tonight is -12. My parronts took the car to the car "vet" to get ready for our trip. Now we just have 3 more sleeps. I can hardly wait!

So we saw on the news last night that there are some folks in Philly who will be renting out their houses or condos for as little as $28,000 during the Pope's visit. Do your moms need some quick cash? They could take the old guy out of town for a few days and rake in the big bucks! Mom says it's worse then when the people in Oakmont rent out their yards for parking during the golf tournaments.
Last night was Daisy's last class for this term. Since mom barely worked with her over the past 2 weeks, she didn't do well. She was fine when mom was having her do her sits, downs, and stays, but when the instructor came by, she stood up and wagged her tail! She was the class clown last night. She still got a certificate, though.
After mom walked the dogs today, she shoveled the driveway, as nobody came by to do it yet. It's about 12 outside with a much colder wind chill.
Today mom had an eye appointment. The good news is that she did not need a shot. The bad news is that she has to go back in 6 weeks. Why is this bad? It's because they are moving the office out to Monroeville, a whole lot closer to our house and with free parking, but they aren't moving until March. So mom and her sis have to drive one more time into Oakland and pay $6 or $7 to park for an hour while mom is at the appointment. They were both hoping the next appointment would be in the new offices.
Hope you are having a good day and getting cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

I'm writing back to you, because my dumb mom clicked on the wrong name. We got Angel Tooth's note, though.
Thanks everybirdie for helping me reach 25k. Cookie cast the big vote!
Today mom did the usual at the center, the raccoons outside and the RVS room with the 2 groundhogs and the 3 bats. The dishes outside were frozen to the ground, as were all the poo and food scraps, so it was tough cleaning. The temps here were 61 yesterday and 17 today, with a wind chill of 3. What a change!
Yesterday mom went out to dinner with her family and had a wonderful Caribbean meal. They went to Kaya in the Strip district, which specializes in kind of pan Caribbean food. They shared appetizers of jerk chicken, conch fritters, and cracklins from tofu (which sounds weird, but tasted good). Mom got spicy paella, which was full of the seafood you'd expect, as well as pineapple, which you wouldn't. They ended the meal with a rum cake from Moio's, the great local Italian bakery.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of warm cuddles. Hugs, Falco
