I bought Amando from a fellow breeder who had purchased him 2 years prior for breeding. Amando was too tame and was terrified of his intended girlfriend so he pulled all his wing feathers out..

  Hello Amando~
I hope you are having a great day! I'm having a nice day so far. It's nearly apple snack time so I'm looking forward to that.
Mom and I are watching House Hunter International. A lot of these people whine way too much but we are watching it to see what houses are like in other countries. It's interesting and the real estate agent in Costa Rica has Ekkies!! It's exciting to see the South American shows and look out for birds!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's perfect!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Amando~
I hope you are having a great day! It's still wet and windy up here but that is the way it is suppose to be this time of the year.
I'm helping mom get some cooking done since she goes back to work tonight and has to work 8 days straight. Having some meals done ahead of time really helps out.
Mom got the computer working this morning and so far so good! She deleted some programs and that may have been the problem. I know! It's a miracle that she figured any of this out!! Ian put Avast security on it and mom started to notice every time it would freeze and have to restart that it would say Avast had updated. It must have been blocking just about every site mom went to. Jennifer's desktop was not doing it so mom deleted it and another program dad put on and it's working this morning.
Dad already ordered the new parts to upgrade and they will be here sometime next week. Hopefully dad will be home sometime next week too so he can put it together. It's really not that hard but mom would rather dad do it so she doesn't mess anything up!
I do hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi ya Amando~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!!
I only have one thing to say about the football game yesterday!!!
RUN SEAHAWKS! RUN! hehehehehehehe
You know I still love them win or lose!
Mom is still using dad's new laptop since we can not stay on the desktop more than a few minutes before it freezes up. Hopefully dad will be home soon and she can grab the old laptop! This new one has keys like a TV remote and it's not very comfortable to type on yet. She is not use to tapping quiet so hard! There is no back button and she keeps hitting something that is takes her back to the log in screen! She is hopeless!
Merlin got in big time trouble yesterday! He was scratching at the doors to the washer and dryer and mom shooed him away. She noticed a pile of carpet fuzz and when she cleaned it up, there is a hole in the carpet in front of the doors! She plopped the hamper over it for now but there goes our security deposit! hahahahaha
Mom knows you never get them back anyway so she is not worried about that but now she has to figure out how to keep him from making the hole bigger! He is such a cat!!!
I hope all is well at your nest and that you are having a perfect kind of day! If you get bored, I have a cat you could borrow for a while! HAHAHAHAHAHA Just kidding! He is amusing but I should be the only one around here who makes holes in things!!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  October BOTM POST number nine
Hi everybirdie, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. " SHHHHHH, we don't wanta wake up those crazy trees again."
"Turn three times and head to the East" Jenny-Lynn reads the sign, " what do you suppose this is all about Jesse?"
"HHHHMMM" Jesse rubs his chin, thinking deeply, as he looks around at the land before them, " not too sure but if the sign says head East we better do it." Jesse pulls his compose from his backpack and gets his bearings. " Ok, this way!"
"WAIT!" Chyna yells, "the signs says we have to turn three times first."
Jesse shrugs, shaking his head, "Girls" he thinks to himself. "East is East, but ok" he motions for everybirdie to stand still.
"The sign says we have to turn three times then head to the East" Jesse begins to turn in a 360 degree circle, " One, Two, Three" he stops and waits as the last of the group completes their third turn. "WOW, that makes me dizzy" Jesse giggles as he tries to get his balance.
"Alright, let's go this way. The road is narrow so be careful not to get too close to the trees and bushes as we get down this hill." Jesse strides off, happy to be moving as far away from the Enchanted Forest as he can get. The sun brilliantly shines down upon the birds as they enjoy the walk along the old dirt road heading towards the Castle in the East.
"Look, ahead" Rio says to Jesse, " what's that?" he points to a shiny area off to the side of the road about a quart mile away.
"Apache? Did you bring your binoculars?" Jesse asks
"Yes, of course, can't be a good scout without them" Apache pulls them over his head, and hands them to Jesse. " It's a lake. It must be the BC Lake" he hands the binoculars back to Apache. "we're nearly back tot he Castle" Jesse breathes a sigh of relief. Soon he could get the Macaw Guards and go back to find his two missing friends. His happy thoughts are shattered by a frantic cry.
" Cydney and Snowflake. They're gone" Raffi cries, as he rushes around, searching for them. " Where's Pepper? and Gus?" the others begin a frantic search for their friends. I saw Snowflake and Cydney, over there by that red rock. The boys spread out to search, but not a feather can be found from their missing friends. Tears fill their eyes as they return to the milling group, and tell them their friends have disappeared into thin air.
"We have to get out of here, and back to the Castle. Come on, let's hurry" Jesse leads out in a quick waddle as fast as his legs will carry him. The others scramble to keep up as they continue down the road drawing closer to the Lake. As the walk, the breeze begins to pick up, and clouds begin to blow blocking out the warm sun. Jesse feels a shiver of dread as he rushes towards the East..

  October BOTM POST number eight
Hello, Jesse here today with you next BOTM Adventure POST. " I always liked trees, but now I don't know" "HHHMMM?"
Spot reaches his Poppa Sky's side, " here, you'll need this" Spot hands his Poppa a hatchet.
"Where'd you find that?" Spot points to a rock by a tall Pine tree. It was just sitting there."
Sky grabs the hatchet and chops the limb off the tree. " AAAAHHHHH!" the Tree yells in pain.
"What?" Sky says to Spot who is helping fight off the vine with Poppa Sky;s pocket knife.
"That hurt" the Tree growls angrily. " now I'll show you" the Tree reaches out so quickly that Sky is not ready for the attack. It grabs his leg and pulls him up into the top-most branches, hanging him upside down. BB hears the scream, and rushes out of the safety of the Boulder where her Sky had left her. Others had found the safety also, and hurried to join her. " NO WAIT HERE" she says picking up a large branch lying on the ground. " that's my Mr Sky" she dashes and runs over the snaky vines, and ducks under the limbs reaching out to grab hold of her. She stands below the tree holding her SKY captive, and pulling back she let's the limb swing, slamming a home-run hit on it's trunk. The terrified tree screams in shock. " Let my MR SKY go, NOW!" she orders angrily. The terrified tree watches as she readies for a second hit. With aloud gasp, and thump, Mr Sky is dropped onto the ground at her feet, in a pile of red and green feathers. Seeing Sky is ok, if not embarrassed she orders the tree, " and Cookie too, and any other birdie you have up there to"
One by one they drop onto the soft leaves and grass below. Six birdies jump free and scramble for safety behind the boulder.
"Ok, let's go rescue the others." Sky tells Spot and BB. They work their way from bush and tree to tree. Leaves shaking furiously at them, as they release their bounty. "Where's Jesse?" Spot asks once the others were in safety. I haven't seen him yet. JESSE?" Spot listens carefully. "Hear that?" he asks BB
"This way" Spot leads the rescuers towards the source of the muffled sound. There, lying rolled in Ivy and wild grape vines with only his bright yellow head feathers showing was his Uncle Jesse. " et eeee utta ere." Spot begins to carefully cut the twined vines and Ivy free, making sure not to cut Uncle Jesse in the process. " Ah, thanks Spot, I was starting to loose consciousness."
Jesse scrambles free of the vines, panting. HE looks around at the trees, now standing quietly, leaves stirring gently in the soft, autumn breeze, like a man sleeping in the sun. " What just happened?" he says out loud.
" We best be gettin' outta here quick, before these crazy trees wake up." Jesse waves the others onwards, as he stand watch until the last one is clear of the " Enchanted Forest". He hurriedly takes the lead once more, as the group climbs a hill. At the peak, a sign reds, turn three times and head to the East.

Hello everybirdie. Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure Post. I know right now, I sure wish I'd brought my cell phone with me.
Jesse and Jake head across the room, following the voice, with Kiddo and Sweetpepper joining them.
"Let's grab hold and pull." The birds grip the handle with all their strength, " One, TWO, THREE!" Jesse yells and they tug as hard as they can. They pull, and pull, with all their might. Suddenly, the handle gives, and a small door springs open in the wall. " We did it, we got it open" Picabo calls out happily, as sunlight beams in through the opening. "We're free"
Jesse smiles, happy to think that they would be out in the sunlight in a minute, and soon the Castle macaw Guards would be there to help find his friends Cori and Sugar."I bet their already outside ready to jump out and frighten us as we step into the sunlight." he thinks to himself as he starts to climb through the small door.
"Come on,it's beautiful outside. I'm glad to be free to that corn maze for good." Jesse calls over his shoulder as he steps into the open again. The trees look pretty with all their colorful leaves.
Quickly the others rush out through the small door and shake their feathers to calm themselves, after being in the pitch dark, dusty room. They smile as the sunlight beams onto them, and the soft breeze stirs the leaves on the ground around their feet. They start off in the direction of the Castle, looking for help in locating their missing friends. They hadn't gone very far at all when suddenly a terrified scream rose from amongst them. Every head snaps round just in time to see Cookie disappearing into the leaves of a nearby tree. The birdies yell in fright, as the trees and bushes around them spring to life, branches and limbs reaching out to catch hold of them, as they dart and twist to get free. Screams shake the air as birdies are gripped by the leaves and twigs, pulled high up into the air.
"Jesse" Elvis yells, as he dashes to stay free of a vine, trying to wrap around his foot. " help, we gotta save the others"
Elvis, leaps just in time and the vine snakes back into the darkness below the tall Oak tree nearby.
Sky dodges a limb, grabbing BB by the waist and hurrying behind a large boulder away from the trees. " You stay here, I'm going to save our friend Cookie. Sky hops,a nd jumps vines and limbs that fly forwards to capture him, as he works towards the tree where Cookie is yelling for help. " I'm here buddy." Sky ducks as a branch reaches for his head. " That's it. Enough" he takes out his pocket knife and cuts the vine around his foot, and snips the end of the branch as it reaches forward once more.

Happy Monday to all my BC friends. I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend. Thank you to each of my friends for their votes, messages and encouragement. I hope your ready for today's adventure in the Corn Maze.
"AUHHHHHH!" Sky coughs, as dusty air fills the room. "What is that awful smell? "
"I don't know buddy, but it wasn't me who did it." Jake laughs loudly, sneezing as the dust swirls and turns in clouds around them. How can that dust blow everywhere when we haven't moved?"
Looking from one to the other, their eyes big. One by one the group files into the stinky, dusty room and crowds together in the damp, blackness. "Everyone here?" Jesse asks
The room is alive with answers. " CORI? SUGAR?" No answer comes.
" Has anybird seen Cori or Sugar?" Jesse questions fearful of what might have become of them in the darkness
" After a moment of puzzled questions and answers, " NO, last time I saw Sugar or Cori was when we were by that hole in the wall, where the maggots where." Pookie and Laka reply. Laka's pretty face pales at the thought of what might have happened to her friends.
"I'll go back and look for them" Raffi says, Cinn-A-Bunn joining him, as they lave the room and feel their way back down the wall. Sky and Jesse rush to catch up, as the four boys search for their missing friends. In the gloomy room, the others stand restlessly waiting. Fearing what fate might have befallen their missing companions.
"We should have gotten to the hole by now. It wasn't this far Jesse" Cinny says
"Yeah, where did the hole go?" Raffi asks concern in his voice, it should have been back a ways in the other direction. " Let's go back, we must have missed it somehow." The four boys turn and retrace their steps. Arriving at the door frame once more they step inside. " DID they show back up?" Jesse asks hopefully. When he hears that negative responses he swallows the lump in his throat.
" I say we go onwards, get outside and go get the Castle Guards to help search. They likely found a way out and are waiting to scare us when we step out the door." BB says, looking at Sky her eyes filled with tears. " I know they're ok, you'll see" Sky pulls her close and hugs her tightly, " we'll find them sweetheart."
"Let's all check out this room carefully for the way out. Stay close so you can feel each others wings and us your feet and wings to feel for the door out of here." Jesse instructs the group. They make their way to the walls, and start to run their wing tips over the icy surface.
"I found something right here" Picabo says, touching a handle made of wood, attached to the wall in front of him. " It must be a trap door outside."

Hi friends, JESSE here once more with your BOTM POST. "WOW, it sure is dark in here" Being a boy Amazon, I have to be brave, bold and courageous? "Jenny-Lynn? You here?"
Little Angel clings tightly to Dixie's wing-tip, as she tries to think how to get out of this scary, dark corn maze. How hard can it be to chew through the corn stalks anyways?
"I have an idea" LA calls out in the blackness. We can chew through the corn stalks and climb out."
"Greyt idea LA" Jenny-Lynn says heading tot he wall and grabbing a beakful of corn-stalk. " HEY, hello? I could use of help here" she says as she pulls a piece free and throws it onto the floor. Soon, everybirdie is busily working their way through the wall of dried corn stalks. " I'm through. Come on, let's pull these piece out and get outta-here."
Sky, Jake, Jesse and Finnegan work quickly to remove the remaining wall,a s the others push them out of the way. Jesse carefully climbs through and steps down onto the ground. "AHHHHHHH!" he screams in terror. "Pull me back in, pull me back in, hurry" The group of adventurous birdies grab their friend and guide and yank him through the hole into their midst. " Maaaaaagoootts" he says trembling.
"Let me at them" Boo Boo chirps up, " their greyt on bread with peanut butter"
"YUCK!!!!, OWWWWWW!! GROSS!" everyone gags at the thought of maggots on peanut butter.
"HEY, don't refuse it till ya try it" Boo Boo says grinning, a twinkle in her eye.
"Let me look" Jenny offers, sticking her head through the large hole in the wall. " YEP, maggots all right." she backs into the room, " millions of them everywhere"
Jesse calms down and shakes to make sure none got onto his feathers. " We can't go that way to get out. We'll have to feel our way and go on" He places a wing tip onto the wall, " OH, watch your step" he trips over what feels like a fallen tree limb?' He wonders to himself how a tree limb got into this hallway.
Everybirdie places their wings onto the rough wall, and inching carefully forward follow Jesse down the twisty hallway. Jesse feels his way until he reaches what feels like a wooden door frame. He stops and runs his wings over the frame, then the cold, hard door. "I found a door. It must be the door that leads us outside again."
Jesse pushes on the door, but it is stuck tight. Then in the pitch blackness, his wing touches a metal doorknob. Using both wings he turns it. Slowly it moves, grinding and clicking, as it opens the door. Jesse pushes the door and it opens noisily on rusty sounding hinges. A puff of stale, dusty air escapes into the hallway, making everybirdie sneeze. " ok, come on, we're going to get out of here. When you go through the door stop and wait until we are all togetehr. We don't want to leave anybirdie behind."
Jesse walks into the room, followed by Jake and Sky, BB and Kiddo. They cough as foul-smelling dust rises into the air.

HELLO, everybirdie, Jesse with today's BOTM POST. I want to thank you all for your daily votes, and I really love the photos of you in your Halloween costumes. I am picking them up and will soon post them on my gallery for everybird to enjoy them.
Dixie looks upset and confused, scared that something had happened to his wife-bird. " They'll be there when we get back Little Angel" he kisses her beak softly to comfort her.
"it'll only take me a moment to run back, get them and be back here." LA turns to run but stops dead in her tracks. The entrance hall has vanished. A solid wall lays in its place. She spins in a circle trying to figure out where the hallway into the maze is. Finally she gives up and stands very still staring at the blackness. Dixie grabs her by the wing and pulls her to him protectively.
" Don't panic. There must be an explanation. RIGHT? SKY? JAKE?" Jesse says anxiously. He looks around to find where the hallway was before he had stopped. Confused he shakes his yellow-head and says, " OK, it's obvious we can't go back out the way we came in. We have only got two choices. Either we stay here until the Castle Macaw Guards come rescue us, or we continue to move on." HE looks at the two tunnels ahead of them. Right now, he wishes he were anywhere but here in the darkness, as a cold chill begins to fill the place where the group stands waiting.
" I say we toss a coin" Hulk says pulling one from his backpack
"Heads we go to the right, tails we go to the left?" Oki calls out
"Ok, we need to do something." Gus replies as he watches the coin sail into the air and land on the floor. " heads. We head into the narrow tunnel on the right."
"Ok, keep close together. I'll go a head a little ways to check it out. SKY!!!!! Come on, you can help me." Jesse states with concern in his voice. Sky inches closer to the entrance to the narrow tunnel. He flashes his flashlight along the narrow floor, then over the walls as far as he can see.
"It looks ok to me." He moves forward, Jesse at his side. The others wait a few minutes then begin to venture slowly into the dark hallway.
Jesse calls out to the group, " Come on, it's ok." He takes a deep breath then moves forward along the wall. HE hasn't gone more then ten feet when his flashlight begins to flicker, then suddenly goes out. "It's ok, does anybirdie have a spare light?" He asks, and listens as gasps of fright fill the tunnel. " My flashlight won't work." Chyna cries out, "Mine either" Falco says. Soon all down the line of birds the replies come back the same. THEY ARE NOW STRANDED IN TOTAL BLACKNESS.
"Dixie, I'm getting scared. Somebirdie might steal my sparkles." Little Angel says in a whisper.
"How can you think of them when we're trapped in the dark, and can't find the way back to the entrance?" Dixie asks
" Ok, I'm scared of the dark," LA holds Dixie's wing-tip tightly as she shivers in the dark. " Dixie,what if we can't get out of here?"

Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with today's BOTM blog. Well, I have changed my mind. NO ladies, I'm not a girl birdie, but I was thinkin' long and hard and spoke with my friend Jake from the K Kritter Koral and have decided rather then doing a month of educational blogs " We're Birds and we gotta have FUN!!!" Halloween is just around the corner, ok, well many corners so this month with the help of my lovely fisters Queen Angel Girl and of course Little Angel Adler we're going to try our wing at the BC Castle Corn Maze.
What I really want from each of you is your HALLOWEEN Photo for my Gallery. Give it a try, edit yourself with a scary, funny or cute costume on, and I'll pick it up and post it for everybirdie to enjoy. For any of you birdies who have a little trouble with editing Momma Deb has agreed to HELP ME edit a photo for you. What I require is !) a clear photo of you in all your beautifulness, and 2) a costume idea or theme. Now, if you like surprises just the photo will do, and we;ll see what we can come up with for you. It does take time to complete all the photos so be patient please. My Momma Deb had a horrible month with our fister Sassy so critically ill, and her flight to Rainbow Bridge..
My handsome frother Mr SKY has said he will pick up the Spotlight blogs after the month and share all the information with you that I have researched. We think my Momma needs to laugh and have fun too now. She cries a lot right now. So, everybirdie get ready for some eggciting, spooky and terrifying adventures in October. You too. I watched the Macaw Guards busily working on it this morning and might I say it sure looks difficult. I hope we make it out ok.
Jesse, stands staring into the corn maze opening. A sense of fear and dread runs up and down his spine. The birdies gather close around him, peering into the high stalks of dried corn. Wide, frightened eyes look from one to another. No birdie is ready to take that first step into the maze. SKY comes strolling forward, intent on being the leader into the Adventure. He walks boldly up to the entrance then suddenly comes to a stop, feathers ruffles, head feathers standing on end. He looks into the blackness, then turns and looks at the others standing bathed in bright fall sunshine. Turning slowly back, he looks once more into the Corn Maze. It is totally black inside. No light. Yet nothing to block out the light. " Ok, Jesse, you lead on" Sky states, stepping carefully away from the scary darkness.
Jesse takes a deep, nervous breath, and moves slowly forwards. The others hold back for a moment before moving behind him as one large bird. Each birdie staring in the abyss ahead. Little Angel pushes past Sky and BB, and comes up beside Jesse. She looks at the Corn Maze. " Oh, come on everyone" she heads boldly into the entrance and walks carefully along the edge near to the wall.

Jesse, stands staring into the corn maze opening. A sense of fear and dread runs up and down his spine. The birdies gather close around him, peering into the high stalks of dried corn. Wide, frightened eyes look from one to another. No birdie is ready to take that first step into the maze. SKY comes strolling forward, intent on being the leader into the Adventure. He walks boldly up to the entrance then suddenly comes to a stop, feathers ruffles, head feathers standing on end. He looks into the blackness, then turns and looks at the others standing bathed in bright fall sunshine. Turning slowly back, he looks once more into the Corn Maze. It is totally black inside. No light. Yet nothing to block out the light. " Ok, Jesse, you lead on" Sky states, stepping carefully away from the scary darkness.
Jesse takes a deep, nervous breath, and moves slowly forwards. The others hold back for a moment before moving behind him as one large bird. Each birdie staring in the abyss ahead. Little Angel pushes past Sky and BB, and comes up beside Jesse. She looks at the Corn Maze. " Oh, come on everyone" she heads boldly into the entrance and walks carefully along the edge near to the wall. The others follow, trusting that Little Angel must know what lay before them.

  Hello Amando~
I hope you are having a great day! We got the car back this morning! YAY! New transmission and an oil change and he is in great shape. Mom is going to have to remember she doesn't have to go really, really slow until he grabs 1st gear now! Felt a bit strange but we are so happy to have it done!
We got the linen closet all cleaned out and made room to store the huge package of paper towels and toilet paper. Mom also got a few cases of bottled water she is keeping in there too. There was an e-coli contamination out on Mercer Island and it closed down all the restaurants for days and everyone had to boil their water. We use a Brita filter but mom doesn't think that it will filter e-coli. She has decided to give me, Mandy and Merlin bottle water to drink just to be safe. They have no idea where the contamination came from and mom doesn't want to take the chance it might happen here. Maybe she is just being too paranoid but she would rather be safe than sorry!
Kaji is only 11 away from his 10K so he will be there very soon. The 10k page is ready for a party so please stop on by tomorrow and congratulate him and grab some food!

I hope you are having a great day! It's starting out cool and misty here! Just the way it should be!
Only 2 more days until the fair is over down in town! It's really fun but there is way too much traffic down there during the fair time. My skin sister's boss went yesterday and brought back a whole bag of fair scones for us! YUMMY! Mom has the mix so we can make more at another time. They have raspberry jam in them!
Can you believe that it is the last day of summer?? I had a nice summer but I just love Autumn. Pretty colors and really yummy squash! Halloween too! Guess I had better start thinking about a costume!
I hope your day is just perfect!

I hope you had a wonderful day! I'm doing just fine. It's dark and cloudy on one side of the hose and very sunny on the other side! It looks so cool!
We are still struggling with the computer so it limits our time during mom's workweek! I hope you don't think I haven't been thinking about you, because I have! It can take us an hour just to get 3 notes out and when mom has to work that night, we just run out of time! I don't think it will be too long before dad can get it fixed up.
I am watching the Mikado with the skin sister! It's got lots of music and for some reason it is making me giggle! I don't usually like operas but this one seems to be funny!
I do hope you enjoy your evening!!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's very pretty here today and I've been enjoying myself.
Nothing exciting going on unless you find laundry exciting. I don't! I do like climbing into the basket of towels and assisting mom in folding them. I'm actually very good at it! For some reason everyone thinks I should stay away from their clothes! I think they think I am going to chew them up!
We are still having computer problems but it's not the new stuff that got installed the other day. Mom is still trying to figure it all out but so far today we have had to restart 4 times. It is not easy to get notes out when the thing keeps freezing up but I do want you to know that I think about you everyday and I hope to be able to spend more time on notes when the computer is cooperating!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect!

I hope you are having a great day! I was very happy to hear from you! I know how busy it is at your nest so please never worry about not being able to blog. I totally understand!
Not much going on here today. Mom's been doing some chores around the place while I hung out with the skin sister Jennifer. We were watching Criminal Minds on Netflix. Not a very exciting show but I like hanging out with Jennifer.
Mom goes back to work tonight so we are making sure all the clothes are clean and that there is some meals made ahead of time. Everyone works different shifts around here to mom tries to get 2 or 3 dinners done ahead of time so everyone can eat when they have a chance. She got a box of Fishers Fair scone mix so I hope she makes those! The fair out here is next month and those scones are the stars of the show! I love them!
I'm glad you got the other cage. I know it was all just an accident and you didn't mean to hurt anyone. Mom still has some of the toys from the cat we had before Merlin and he is not allowed to play with those. Mom just decided to keep a few of the favorite ones as a remembrance.

I hope you are having a great day! Everything is fine here at my nest. I'm having some playtime with mom and soon I will head off to the play cage for my apple.
We have lots of chores to get done today and I think mom is going over to the market to get a few things. It's only at the end of our driveway so she won't be gone long. Later on we will be getting some cooking done. My beans and grains for my mash are soaking and mom will cook those tonight. I am hoping that some corn bread will be on the menu too! A little corn bread to go with my mash sounds like an excellent idea to me!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still very pretty here and I am enjoying this last month of summer!

Today is the little niece Maddie 2nd birthday! Time flies! The picture in my gallery is from this morning! She is going to have a party today but I don't get to go. I guess one little kid around is okay but a whole bunch of them would be too much for me to take! I'll get to see her soon!

Merlin is shedding, Mandy is shedding and I am molting! That evil vacuum has been out way too much! mom tries to move us to different rooms when she uses it but she has had to use it so much in the past few days that one of us is always around! Merlin doesn't really care about it but it kind of freaks Mandy out! I go into Monster Bird mode and stomp around! Mom thinks it's funny when I do that! A little respect for the zon attitude is needed!!!!

I hope you are having a great day! It's still very summery up here and we are enjoying it. It hasn't been too hot at all! It's been nice to have so much sunshine!
It's been a nice quiet day so far. I like the quiet ones!
When mom is working, she keeps her cell phone in the pocket of her apron. When she went on break last night she shoved her wallet into the pocket with the cell phone and accidentally dialed Aunt Theresa!! Mom goes on break at 1am so it was 4am at Aunt Theresa's house! Luckily Aunt Theresa was awake. She told mom that my Ceasaur and Cheeta are both doing well. If you didn't know, they were both bitten by one of their macaw fiblings who had escaped their cage! Ceasaur got his foot hurt and Cheeta ended up with a broken wing. They are both healing and will be just fine! That made me very happy and worth mom being embarrassed about calling at an ungodly hour! I keep telling you all that mom is such a dork!hahahahahahaha
I hope you enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and sending hugs your way!

I hope you had a wonderful day. It was a pretty nice one here. We had some computer problems but mom ran a scan and it all seems to be running okay now.
I spent the day supervising chores and playing with toys. Dad is home and he is a bit messy. There is of course tons of laundry stacked in the living room! Really kind of boring around here but that is just fine by me!
Mom did the market thing early today since dad had 2 doctor appointments. He has to squeeze them all in when he is home. I don't know when he is going to go back out on the road.

  HI ya Amando~
I hope you had a great day! I had a pretty good day. Mom has a sinus infection so we just spent a quiet day together.
I have 3 new cousins! Mom's sister took in 3 budgies from a family who moved to Ohio. They had a nice flight cage but no toys and the family just left them in a back room and didn't pay any attention to them! They didn't even have any names! Mom suggested that her sister name them Prue, Piper and Paige after the 3 sister in Charmed. They are 3 little ladies who are 3 years old! Mom told her sister not to look at them directly in the eye and to give them some time to get use to her. She has already bought them all kinds of toys and perches! I think they will be very happy there!
Have a great night! I hope it's just perfect!

I intended to get around to say hello yesterday but dad put a new wireless mouse on the computer and somehow my Computer Wizard of a mom keeps shutting down the computer! She thinks she has it figured out now! I certainly hope so since my social life is very important to me!!
Really not much going on but I do like to get by often and say hello and see how things are going with you! How are things with you??? I'm just hanging out watching a Criminal Minds DVD with mom and Jennifer. This is the last disc for season 8 and season 9 in not out yet!

  Hello Amando!
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Happy Summer!

Our first day of summer did not start out so well. There was a dead pigeon on the balcony this morning and it made us all very sad. We could hear the other pigeons cooing and we wonder if they knew what had happened. There was no obvious signs of what it died from so maybe it was just old and it was it's time to go. Still, it was a lousy way to begin summer.

We have a few chores to get done and dad is going to take the rest of his stuff over to his truck. He will leave tonight. Mom will drop him off on her way to work since the truck terminal is in the same town mom works in.

I hope you are enjoying the day!
We had a crazy day. The fire alarm people did not show up until nearly noon. They started on the other side of the complex! We had already done all our chores and were just waiting for them to show up. Mom had just gotten on Facebook and went to click on a Linkin Park Video when the fire alarms went off! Mom thought it was feedback from the video and turned the sound down! When the screeching kept going she final realized it was the alarms!hahahahaha
Mandy, Merlin and I were taken into mom's bathroom to wait for the inspection to be done. It was only for 10 minutes but Mandy was freaking out! She was panting hard and kept trying to squeeze behind mom! Merlin just sat in the sink like he always does. I was perfectly okay and just spent time chatting with mom.
Mom had to go to the market after that. She wasn't gone for a long time at least. She and Ian went to the mall to look for shoes for Ian first. He wears a 15 so not all the stores have shoes that big. He found some at Famous Footwear so he's happy! They stopped at Dairy Queen after that. They were taking donations for the children's miracle network at Diary Queen so mom bought a big balloon and put my name on it! It's now hanging at the Dairy Queen in the Mall! I'm gonna be famous!hahahahahaha It's the biggest balloon there!
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day!

I hope you are having a great day! I hope the weather is lovely at your home!
It has been a very boring week so far. Nothing exciting to share!
It is sunny and very nice outside so I have been spending some time watching the people in the complex pool. Always seems silly to me to be splashing around and getting all wet. They all seem to enjoy it though! I have been spending a lot of time playing with my measuring cups this week. Mom got a plastic link chain and hung them from the top of the play cage. I love to slam them into the side of the cage and just swing back and forth with them!
It's our weekend now. I know that cleaning in on the schedule but I don't know what else. I think the dog is going to get a bath but I never see that happen. I just see her when she comes out and prances around! She is such a goof and loves everyone to tell her how pretty she looks after a bath.

Mom is working her regular schedule so we are getting things ready for her to start her work week tonight. I hear that the cages are going to be cleaned too so I'm not too happy about that. My night cage gets put into mom's shower so I don't ever see that happen. I would get to cranky if I had to see that!
Mom and Ian went to see X-Men yesterday and really enjoyed it. Jennifer didn't want to see it so she hung out with me! We watched Project Runway repeats and it was awful! The snacks were good though.
The family went over to a new Mexican restaurant last night for dinner. Mom said is was okay but not worth the money. They don't go out to eat much so when they do they like to go somewhere spectacular!

I hope you are having a great day! The rain came back here last night. We had this beautiful sunny week and now the rain is back for the weekend!hahahahaha It always happens like that. Mom is working and we don't BBQ so it doesn't really matter to us. Nothing stops up here because of the rain because if it did nothing would ever get done!
The fundraiser for Sam 212680 is this Sunday the 25th. I know most birds are already voting for him but if you know some birds that I don't, perhaps you could ask them to drop off a vote!! Falco, Willie and Peppino's mom and Raffikki's mom are going to match the donations so it is going to be a huge gift for the birds who live at the Iowa Parrot Rescue! I know it's a holiday weekend but I hope every bird can spare a few minutes to vote. It just happens that Memorial Day weekend is the day I came to live with mom! I think that is a great reason to celebrate!
I've been doing my part by ripping up mom's notebook with all her notes in it! She has to write everything down so that she remembers who is having a hatchday, etc. I have been shredding the old stuff so she doesn't get confused with too many lists! It's the least I can do since I am so very good at ripping things up!
I hope you enjoy the day and that it is just perfect!

I hope you are having a great day!

As most of you already know, I came to live with my mom when her sister was unable to care for me anymore! I have known mom for 30 years and been a part of the family for that long! Mom use to bird sit me so when I needed a new place to live she was the logical choice! That and the fact that she has always loved me so very much!

To celebrate my 6th anniversary of being with my mom, I am holding a fund raiser for Iowa Parrot Rescue. I support this rescue every month and am amazed at the awesome job Mike and Abi do to take care of birds in need of a home. I have many friends who are in forever homes who started out at IPR. I am a lucky bird since I have been with my family for 30 years and will continue to live with them until the end of my life. There are many birds who are not as fortunate as us! They have already adopted out many birds this year but for some reason, no Amazons! Being an Amazon, I want to help out my fellow zons!

On May 25th-next Sunday-every vote that Sam gets will mean a dollar contribution for the Iowa Parrot Rescue! You can help by leaving a vote for Sam that day! I really appreciate every vote that will mean money for the IPR! Tell your friends who may not know me and Thank you in advance!!

I know the BC has been slowing down and many birds have lost interest lately but I hope you will all get out to support Sam and the IPR!

I hope your day is just perfect!

I hope you are all enjoying the day! It's dry here now but the dark clouds are rolling in again. I'm enjoying watching the flags in front of the complex blow in the wind! They have Tulips on them and are very pretty.
We are just doing the usual Saturday morning cooking. There is chili in the crockpot and chicken cooking on the stove. It's going to be chicken enchiladas. Everyone works different schedules around here so mom tries to get some meals done that everyone can just heat and eat when they have the time. I help out by tasting the tortillas and a few beans just to make sure they are good!hehehehehehe
Not much else going on today. Mom has to get her things ready for her workweek and then get some sleep before she has to head out tonight.
I hope you have a fabulous day! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!

I hope you are having a great day! We are so very happy to know that Sweetie is going to get her surgery! We are praying so very hard that is turns out perfectly for her. I know that the vet will do his best and I want her to have a very long and happy life!
It's rainy up here but the gardeners came anyway! They pulled out all the flowers out of the planters and the front last week so they are going to be planting more today! I can't wait to see what they are going to plant! It was violets and pansies last time. Perhaps we will get some marigolds this time! They are always pretty to look at!
The evil vacuum seems to be working great and I didn't growl nearly as much last time mom used it! I am not going to ever like the evil thing but it seems to make mom happy to have a working one! It's strange what makes the parronts happy!hehehehehehehe
Mom has to go to the market today but after that we are going to hang out around the house. I am hoping mom will find a movie for us to watch tonight and make some popcorn! I love popcorn!
The post office is having their food drive tomorrow so later on I will help mom get the bag ready to leave out tomorrow. I picked applesauce to donate because I love to eat it! Mom said it was very nice of me and that she is sure anyone who gets it will love it!

I hope you are having a fantastic day!
Mom came home all excited this morning and told me to wait to see what she bought! Are you ready for this??
A VACUUM! Wasn't one in the house enough? You know I hate those things! Why she thought I would be as excited as she was is beyond me!!
She told me she had been looking at this one for a while and waited for today since it was on sale, it is senior discount day and you get a free 10$ gift card with it. It is a Hoover Windtunnel 2 for Pets! Since you don't need a vacuum to pick up feathers or wood chunks, I am placing the blame for this disaster on Mandy and Merlin! If mom would just shave them we would not have a need for the vacuum!!
Mom said the other one is just too old and doesn't work well anymore! That's because the horrible thing has been vacuuming up dog and cat hair for years! I do have to say that this one is much quieter and has lovely red accessories but it's still a vacuum!
You do not need to feel sorry for me since I know you have to put up the the same thing!! Parronts are such clean freaks!!
I will try to enjoy my day anyway and I hope you do too!

I don't usually like the little humans but Maddie and I get along well. She is rather quiet and I appreciate that! The one's who make a lot of noise and move around too much make me nervous!
I have my cage all neat and tidy! I want to set a good example for the little one! Actually mom wants me to be a good example! I think I should show her how much fun ripping up newspaper can be!
Enjoy the weekend! I hope you get to have lots of fun!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar

  Hi handsome Amando, from your pal Jenny Lynn
My love to the fabulous Napanee flock! We agree with Mr Cookie, the weekends are to fast and these Mondays are rolling around much to fast! Our prayers go out to all the people hit by one of the 31 tornados, and the 18 that are confirmed dead, what a pity and sad loss of precious life! We also think of all the pets and especially parrots who are now lost or killed, so sad! We will be going to the Milonga Derby Stables to give Stay Thirsty a good work out and a few carrots and apples! Have a great Monday, stay safe, and give my love to all in your home, see ya tomorrow...

Love from Jenny Lynn & the Dallas kids

  Hello Amando~
I hope you are having a great day! Absolutely nothing of interest going on in my world but I did want to come by and say hello!
We have been doing more spring cleaning this week and it's really not very exciting at all!! Mom scrubbed the sliding glass door and the screen! It's so bright and pretty and I have an excellent view of the flags out in front of the complex! It's always windy around here so they are always flapping! They have red tulips on the flags and I enjoy watching them wave in the wind!
I hope you are enjoying your day and that window cleaning is not the most exciting thing going on in your life! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar
