I found Caden at a bird fair. He was very distressed by all the noise and people moving around. I talked to the person selling him and he could give very little information on him. He had obtained him at another bird fair so I am probably his 3rd or 4th 'home'. The seller said he was a very nervous bird but very nice and he wanted to find the right home for him. Somewhere calm and with a person who would treat him well. After we talked a bit more we both felt that my home was just the place. Caden is very fearful but must of at one time had a very good and loving home as you could not have asked for a sweeter tempered bird.

CADEN's PROGRESS

MAY 1st - VET TEST RESULTS IN - Caden has an E Coli infection. Vet said he must have been kept in unsanitary conditions for at some time. Good news is it is treatable and he should be OK. So 10 days of antibiotics. What fun. LOL
MAY 10th - E Coli is clear!
JULY 11th - Caden has made remarkable progress. He is no longer fearful. He loves to come out of his cage, is very vocal and actively seeks my attention. Last week he started asking for head scratches. This week he is now not happy unless he can sit as close to me as he can. He is still frightened of stepping up either on a hand or a hand held perch but that will come. He is such a character and loves to play.
AUG 8 - Caden still makes progress. Although he still will bite me the bite is not as hard and the attempt to bite is less frequent. Previously the bite would be hard enough to break the skin and/or bruise now it is less aggressive and is not hard enough to cause damage.
JAN 18TH - A BANNER DAY!! My brave little chap has overcome his fear of hand held perches and stepped up on one several times today. Not only that he sit on a play gym for several minutes which he would never do before. I am sooo proud of him.
APRIL 18th - Caden has been with me almost a year now (Apr 22nd)and what a difference a year makes. Caden arrived fearful and ill. He would not come out of his cage, would not step up and would shrink from people. He is now healthy and a bold explorer. He seeks out my company, loves to be near people, will step up on a perch and even asking for head scratches from time to time. He now happily tries new foods and has started to pick up some new words. He is a delight and I have been rewarded 100 times over for having opened my home and heart to him.

That even though she could see I was fearful of everything, would not step up, would not come out of my cage and it will take a lot of time and effort to help me trust people again she has given me a forever home and will love me for who I am even if I never learn to trust again.

  Hi Caden! Just Wanted to Come By & Say Hello...
You aren't going to believe this, but it really happened early this morning while it was still dark outside. What A Strange Day. And It Started With A Cat! Mom was all snuggled into her nice bed, one of those Temperpedic Beds that has a remote control to make the head part go up & down & also the feet/legs go up & down. She was peacefully sleeping & minding her own business when CooCoo Kitty CocoPuff steps on the remote…BOTH buttons at the same time & the bed starts to fold Mom up like a sandwich! Her sleeping on her side & having a bad back, well, she woke up wondering, “WHAT THE HEY?!!” She looked over to see CocoPuff, with an evil grin I imagine, standing there all innocent looking. She was lookin’ at Mom like, “Wha? I haven’t done anything!” Well, the bed moves fast & even though Mom pushed her off the remote that was setting on her nightstand, her back was hurt. Today, Mom would like to present the letter “V”. Yep. That’s her cracked back there at the pointy part! The rest of the day Mom sat with me & nursed her back with ice packs & heating pads. She’d growl at CooCooPuff when she’d stroll by with that smirk on her face. BOY, would I have LOVED to fly after her & give her fluffy tail a real good BITE!! No, I didn’t do it. Mom was already stressed out with the pain so I didn’t make her feel worse. No, I loved on her & sang her the new song she introduced to me a couple of weeks ago. Heehee! It’s about Satellites! Hope you have a nice evening. Hugs for all, SamIAm

  Hi Caden
It's greyt to see you again, and good to know that you had a nice THanksgiving, we did too. It's pretty neat that MM hosts a party for your mom's friends, heehee.
Today was pretty long so far. Mom cleaned in the mammal nursery and the recovery room today. The little flying squirrel in the mammal nursery has a name on her chart now, so it looks like she's become a permanent resident. After her shift at the center, she went to the post office to get a few things mailed, then went to the nail salon, both to get her nails done for Christmas and to teach her English class. After that, she went shopping with her sister, and they had a late lunch, so now she's finally home and getting our blogs done.
The good news is that she won't have to cook dinner tonight, so she can spend all her time with us, YAY. We hope you are having a good day and getting lots of attention. Hugs, Peppino

and Monty Mae, too! Mom watched bits and pieces of the parade from Macy's yesterday, as she was getting things ready for dinner, but she was mostly in the kitchen. We got to see the whole thing. We all liked the colors and the music.
Mom hosted a small feast yesterday, only 7 people, but they enjoyed the meal and each other's company. It turned out to be a very good day, until the Steelers handed the Ravens the game last night. One interesting thing happened that made mom kind of glad there weren't more people here. After everyone left, she went into the kitchen and turned on the dishwasher. The dishwasher apparently passed away sometime in the past 6 months! Who knew? Mom always washes her dishes as she uses them, so didn't know the dishwasher had died a peaceful death. It was not hard to wash up after 7 people, though.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving day, with family and friends. Pretty soon we'll be getting ready for Christmas! Hugs, Peppino

Falco has some pics posted on the bottom of her page today. Our next island was Dominica (dom in EEKa), in the West Indies. We met some people there dressed in local costume (4th pic), saw a beautiful waterfall, bought local crafts (pic 2), and got some great shots of the ship from the crest of a hill. There was a woman on the pier selling crepe paper flowers there, saying it was to help her children's education. Our excursion guide told us that was true, because although education is free and compulsory from age 3 to 16, parents must supply books and uniforms for their children. The average annual income there is between $1000 and $1500! Books and uniforms are expensive so it's hard for the parents. It was a beautiful island, though. Hope you are having a great day!

I was very good while mom was gone! Anna told mom I didn't bite her even once, isn't that great?
I really missed all my friends! Mom is home and had a great time on the cruise. It was a whirlwind, though, only one day at sea, and an island a day otherwise. The first excursion was to Rio de Abajo in Puerto Rico. It's a great park where they are working to save the Puerto Rican parrot. Mom got some pics, and as soon as she downloads them, we'll post some for you. It was a successful breeding year this year, they got lots of chicks! The population is rebounding from a low of a few birds to over 100 to date. We'll share more as the week goes on. I'm just checking in today to let you know we're back online and ready for some football and Thanksgiving. Hope you are having a great day, getting lots of love. Hugs, Peppino

It's in the low 40s here. The tree guys that the electric company hires have been butchering trees in our neighborhood for days now, and today it was our turn. The former sun garden turned shade garden will be a sunny spot again next summer. They took about half the elm tree and about a third of the maple tree down. The one good thing they did was to leave the hemlock cuttings in the front yard like mom asked instead of feeding them into the chipper. Irwin the porcupine eats hemlock, so he'll have a good supply of fresh cuttings.
Mom worked in the avian nursery and on the squirrel porch again today in the rain and cold. There is a new pigeon in the nursery that's absolutely gorgeous! It's a white fan tailed one with feathers all the way to its toes! If mom had space, that's one she'd adopt in a heartbeat, but there is no more room for cages here. Hope you are having a great day and getting some loving. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Caden! I Wanted To Come By & See How You Were
...doing? I also wanted a peek at Miss Monte May, too. It must be tough having a hot fister around. Talented baseball player, too! You know, I think you're catching up your baseball maneuvers to her! And she's experienced in all things baseball. Is that where you're getting your other practices in with? Well...no harm in having a nice baseball time with a flock mate! I wish I had one! Just me at my house.

Somebirdy turned on the ultra BRIGHT LIGHT today! After almost a week of dull cloudy & drizzly skies, this morning it was bright blue with a sunshiny happy faced sun outside! The later the day goes on, the brighter it's getting!! Me & Mom are in need of sunglasses in the house!

This morning was an equally yummy breakfast. Whole grain waffles with blueberry spread. Mom sprinkled some crushed nuts on top for protein. I liked it very much!

Hope you are having some fun! Mom tried out a cardboard box for me. A very small one! But I headed for the hills. I peeked from around my piñata & watched Mom tear it a bit, acting like she just loved it. That's fine with me. She can HAVE it. Mom says I need another bird to teach me how to have fun. It is very hard for her, an old human, to teach me how I should be having fun.

I have started jumping on my piñata & swinging around while I attack it & shred it very violently! I haven't told Mom I'm in training for the Pirate Pearl & that's my dummy for fighting with!! She wouldn't understand. In fact, she'd probably take it down if she knew!! And I DON'T KNOW HOW TO HAVE FUN???? Sheesh!

I hope you & your flock are having a swinging good time today, too! Hugs for all, SamIAm

  Hi Caden
This morning mom did the squirrel porch, which now has 20 gray squirrels, 7 flying squirrels, that possum, and a screech owl. That's a lot of work and a lot of food to carry out there. She also cleaned the avian nursery, and the mourning doves who were in the incubator have graduated to a fledgling cage with some other doves. That's good, because they will be released as a flock. The screech owls in there look good, so they'll probably go outside soon, too. The poor waxwing will have to stay for the winter as the flocks are gone for now. Hope you are having a happy and beautiful day there. It was in the 40s this morning, but now it's close to 70 and sunny once again. It's been a great fall so far. Hugs, Peppino

Wow, box sounds like fun! Willie was telling me about rolls, those things paper towels come on, and they sound pretty interesting too.
This morning mom got to the pool early, then went for her manicure. By the time she got home it was lunch time and we all wanted a snack to tide us over until later. It's still gorgeous out, in the 80s today! October sure is starting out well. Not much to report today, so I hope you're having a fun day with lots of sun and love. Hugs, Peppino

We were so happy to hear that Aunt Pam and Uncle Rich both came through successful surgeries.
We turned on the furnace this morning, it was cool in the house for the first time since March.
Not much new here, mom worked at the museum last night, but nobody came to Dinosaur Hall. Apparently the entire group was more interested in the art and some of the new installations for the Carnegie International, which will open in 2 weeks. It was okay, though, she was only there for an hour. Today is catch up on laundry day among other things, so we'll have her around all day except when she goes to swim a little later.
I seem to be settling in well, and Maxine hasn't been vocal at all yet, but she is eating. She comes down to eat when mom takes her plate into the living room, so mom will be eating in there for awhile, I guess. She seems to be able to perch even without toenails, so mom isn't going to worry too much about soft perches just yet. She does have a rope perch that she can put in there, but wants to give Maxine time to adjust to her new house first. I hope you're having a good day with lots of love and attention. Hugs, Peppino

Sorry we didn't get online yesterday. We got to vote for Casey, but then mom got involved in something. Her friends are here from another part of the state, and earlier in the week, mom saw a finch when she went to get my new sister Maxine. The woman at Butler Parrots helped to round up a large number of birds that were in a crowded house. She offered to give them to people locally who wanted them because they were really taking over more rescue space than she has. The finch was the only surviving finch in the bunch, and mom thought she knew the perfect home. When her friends went to Butler with her yesterday, they not only took the finch, but they also rehomed 2 lovebirds! YAY for them! Anyway, it was pretty much an all day thing, between traveling there, visiting with her friends, setting the birds up here until tomorrow when they will go home forever, taking care of all of us, feeding the dogs, well, you get the picture! So, whew, we're back today, can't wait for the milonga tonight! Hope to see you there. I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of attention. Hugs, Peppino

It's been cool overnight here lately, but the days are still warm. That's good, because mom can hang her suit and towel out to dry on pool days.
Mom visited the rescue yesterday, and met Debby and Maxine. Debby is the derbyan hen, who was pretty cool, but mom thought she had a chance of someone picking her out. Maxine looked like she needed a place to live, just be a bird for awhile, and rest. That suited mom, so she picked 18 year old moustached parakeet, Maxine. The rescue lady told mom she could have her, but mom insisted on making a donation. Thanks to Aunt Jane, mom had a wingabago for a nice carrier for Maxine. Mom probably won't post a page for her, but we'll get some pics of her for my page. The poor girl lost her tail feathers and lots of body feathers when Robin bathed her, and they're just growing in. She also has no toenails that mom can see. If anybirdie knows if mom needs to make special perches or anything for that condition, let us know.
Today was waterfowl, turkey, possum, and squirrel day for mom at the center. Everyone is growing up and getting well, it seems. The place isn't nearly as crowded as it was a month ago!
Hope you are having a great day with lots of love. Hugs, Peppino

I'm so happy that you received your first pics. I had hoped to get them to you asap to put on your page but between loading them on the puter and changing to windows 8, it took this long. I still can't get all of those pics on. I'm happy that all is well with you now. You were pretty scared in that bird fair ... so many people!
Yes, mom is trying to get back next year and so are some of the other moms. Hope to see your mom again.

  You Can Count On It, Caden!
If we play next season, you bet your horn bill that the Silver Sluggers will storm the field with much more style, more experience, and just for FUN!! You'll be in that flock/team for sure!

Today was WONDERFUL!! I got to spend a lot of it OUTSIDE on the deck! It was a gorgeous day & it wasn't too hot nor was it too cool. It wasn't even muggy outside which is always a rarity here in the Carolinas!

Once I was wheeled outside, I could hear some chickadees out at the tree line singing & chirping. Mom laughed at my joy of being outside because I was dancing back & forth to the Chickadees' Song! It really had a good beat! I'd say it was just perfect for a perfect day!

Tomorrow's going to be a bit cooler but we shall see if an afternoon sunning time will be just right like it was today! I even got to chirp back at the hummingbirds!

See you later & big ole hugs for all, SamIAm

  Good Evening Caden!
Hi there! I just wanted to come by to let the Silver Sluggers know that
it was a true honor to play Birdy Bazbol with you this year! It
took a lot of work, grit, & determination to make our team advance
the way that it did. I am very proud of each & every one of you! I
feel I learned from you as well! Let's remember those grueling
workouts & practices with fondness. We all made some funny
mistakes or practical jokes in the locker room. Even though we worked
hard to better ourselves, we had a good time doing it. At least, I did.

Our Reserve Birds were the best a team could have & knocked our socks
off several times with their talents! They, too, did an extraordinary job
this season!

I just want to say thank you for the best bunch of grey birds a coach could
ever ask for. I don't know what next season will bring. If they ask ole' Sam
to be a coach again, I think the answer will be "yes" if you greyt grey birds
will play along with me! I will look forward to it for sure! Thanks again to Angel, Caden, Cu-Bird, Jetta, LaLo, Lucky, Napoleon, Oki, Pepper, Poppy, Saber, & last but certainly not least, TiPaul.

Please forgive my tardiness of sending this end of season blog. Due to family
emergency out of town, Mom just didn't have time because she had to prepare for my needs & pack herself for a possible extended stay. Which the extended part extended way too long for MY liking! But she's back & now is trying to catch up with me & those things around the house that won't find themselves completed unless Mom does them.

My hope is for your happiness always as we start into the fall. Can you believe it's already September!! It is true what they say, time flies when you're having fun!

Big Hugs,
SamIAm, Coach, Captain, & Friend.

Home runs, triples, doubles! I never new WHAT you were going to make that bat of your's do! It's always exciting to watch you swing that thing!! Thanks for all your loyalty & hard work you put forth for your team!!

Mom has been a bit diverted today with her trying to be with me and doing the things her mate wanted her to do today. It's been a busy kind of day.

She says thank you for the WIN today over a very tough team! She knows about the Amazon Rainforest Raiders! They are tough as nails and she really thought we'd have a very tough time to even keep up with them. She thinks of us as little babies and well, that's hard to change her impression of us gray birds!! She's always wanting to "baby" us. But I think I made a big impression as well as all of the team, that we're more than most folks bargain for when we put our minds to it!

Thanks again for being the bestests team a bird could ever want! GO SILVER SLUGGERS....AWAY!!! Sam acts like his riding a horse like the Lone Ranger and pretend gallops away!!

  Hey! Hey! What'd Ya Say!?
We have a game tomorrow, Wednesday, August 7th, against those forceful & rugged Rainforest Raiders! It has dawned on me, my team mates, that ALL these hummingbirds whizzing around here just maybe "Rainforest Raiders", too! Gathering intel for those rascally Amazon Raiders! There's no convincing Mom that there's a possible connection, so I've made sure NOT to leave my notes out in plain site! I've been studying all the films of their baseball games looking for ANY errors or bad habits we may take advantage of! They're few & far between but nobirdy is perfect. See you early for some practice/warm-up before the game! Get plenty of sleep & a big breakfast to fuel your strong bodies & minds! It's time to show them why we're PROUD to be the Silver Sluggers. By the way, let's win this one for my Mom, it's her birthday & I don't know of anything else she'd rather have than a "WIN" for our team! LET'S GO SILVER SLUGGERS!!!

  Hello Silver Sluggers, Capt. SamIAm Here.....
.....wanting to express to our King of the Day, Super Reserve Silver Slugger, Oki our humble congratulations to him for winning the BOTD today, July 29th, 2013! We are very excited & happy to have the caliber of birds that make BOTD or BOTM, too, as good Jetta did right at the beginning of the season. Many of you others have also won this honor, as Saber comes to mind, and if there are any others, please let me know, I'm going to put your names up on the info up there on our page. I think it is only right that you all are recognized in your ball club if you win that prestigious title while being a Silver Slugger. So, if I've forgotten you were BOTD, please do leave your name here telling me so. I will make a request for that info at the end of today's game. May I also have the date of your special day, too. Thanks everybirdy!

Well, we WON TODAY'S GAME against the Talon League's #1 ranking team! The mighty Phoenix Base Fliers. I'm so proud of ALL of the Silver Sluggers! I'm so thrilled! I'm so tickled! I'm so in disbelief but WOWZERS this feels GOOD! I'm hoping you feel the same!

Again, congrats, King Oki! We are so proud that you are one of the Silver Sluggers! Hip! Hip! HOORAY!!! Oki is our King Of The DAY!!!

So says I, SamIAm, Proud Coach of those Silver Sluggers!

  Hey Caden! That's Alright, It's Summer Time!
A birdson is subject to his human's needs for vacations, extra hours swimming, etc. etc. Just you coming by is counted in a positive way for our team. That's the part of birdie bazebol I don't understand completely. All I know is to talk about it with every birdie!

I had a 'monkey wrench' thrown into my being at the game, too! Mom's mate made their haircut appointments at 2pm!! We live in a very rural area so it's an hour + one way to the salon! They were out of the place just before 3pm. Mom had an iPad waiting in the car & she "tried" to type as they were on their way home. Her mate would hit a railroad track and POW! Mom has hit the send button 5X's! It happened some more after the first one too!

You did mighty fine Caden! We played so hard but I am pleased where we stand against the Pois'N Dem. They are twice World Champions of Birdie Bazebol. If we made them work for that win & put a sweat on their brow, we did good! YOU did good! Yep. I'm proud to be a Silver Slugger and it's because of team mates like you! Hugs to all, Coach SamIAm

  Caden, 3rd BaseBird of the Silver Sluggers!
Captain SamIAm coming with a reminder that this Wednesday, July 10th, we will be goin' up against those mighty Pois'N Dem. They are super tough & you can bet they're going to throw everything at us….most likely the kitchen sink, too!

I'm not a bit worried though. I know this team likes to win. I know this team enjoys surprising the crowd. We're gonna do this thing & we're gonna do it proud! The Silver Sluggers are coming to a field near YOU! Look forward to seeing you on Wednesday!!

Proud to be a Silver Slugger,
Captain SamIAm

  Hey Caden Buddy Bird!
Just touching base with ya, that the All*Star Game is being postponed until next Friday, July 12th. Same time as the regular baseball games. The game that should have been played on that date will be held after all the regular scheduled games are completed. At the end of the season, we'll be seeing that game.

Another dreary grey day for us, I'm afraid. A nice day for snoozing after all the fireworks that just went on.....and on......and on.....and on. Did I tell you they went on and on? Yeah, I thought so. I'll go take a nap! It seemed as soon as they stopped, the sun was coming up.

Hope your day is filled with sunshine & kisses! Hugs to all, SamIAm

  Happy 4th Of July!
The Silver Sluggards are loud & proud!

I would like to invite you to the All*Star Game on Friday, 3pm EDT on KEVLAR Memorial Stadium, pg. # 239836. I hope you will come and support The Beak League, our league, and you can come cheer for or throw peanuts at your Captain who is so honored to be representing' the Silver Sluggers on 1st base. I need my team mates with me. No one bird makes a team. We can meet up at the Team Page and come all together. Wear your uniforms! That way if I get beaned out, one you birds can take over for me. We all look a like anyway! Heeheehee!

Kidding aside, this was an honor that I truly wasn't looking for. I am humbled by your generosity & that of the BC. All you birds know it was my poor batting that pushed those extra practices at us. Now, I better suck it up and give'er all I got for this honor. A newbie in almost every way, I just didn't think it would have landed on me. I will do my very best to represent our team.

Have a very Happy 4th of July with your flocks & families. Be safe. Keep your heads down & your tail feathers tucked! I'll be looking forward to seeing you Friday!

Thanks Again,
Captain SamIAm
Proud to be a Silver Slugger

  Coach SamIAm Runs Into Caden's Room....
Avast Ye Lazy Ne'r-Do-Well!!! It's time to get ye up & ready for a day of pirating'!! Wait, that's not right! Sam clears his throat & takes off his ball cap and looks at the front of it. Oh, that's right! BASEBALL!!

JUMP UP!! Today's the DAY!! It will be like something OUT OF THE TWILIGHT ZONE!!! We'll be playing against mirror images of OURSELVES!! We're TOUGH!! They're TOUGH! We're QUICK! They're QUICK! It will be a day of baseball that birds will talk about for a long long time!! The Greyt Grey Wings are gonna be tough & we'll have to work hard because…they THINK like us. They KNOW how we'll react! They MOVE like us! It will be a task to know who we should tag or not!

Come early for some practice & "go overs" in strategy. RATS! They'll know what we're gonna DO!!! Sam shakes his head. I need Miss Hummingbird right about now. I can't THINK like a "Grey" to be able to win this game! Arrrgghh…. It's gonna be an African Grey show down of the century! Remember...game at Kevlar Stadium, today, Wednesday, June 26th! See ya!

  GO, SILVER SLUGGERS!! GO!!
Congratulations, team, for rallying up & successfully overtaking those powerhouse Kevlar Keets! I'm so very proud of each & every one of you! I'm tickled that our reserves were able to give it a shot this time & whoo boy, did they EVER!!!

Now, I want to remind everybirdy that we are a T.E.A.M.!! We're like family. Being like that, sometimes we may say things we don't really mean to each other in times of stress. LIKE YESTERDAY!!! That was a greyt game, but yes, it was stressful. Sometimes that can make us say things that ought not to be said. Also, it means not "pecking" at somebirdy to rile them up, either!! Let's get this in our heads. When somebirdy demeans, criticizes or insults another, they are saying it to ALL of us!! If it is coming from inside our own team to one another, we won't stand a chance to win anything.

If you have an idea or suggestion to help your team mates, by all means, share it with us! We all want to improve & excel! I know I do! Anybirdy who thinks they have nothing to improve on, won't go far because they can't be taught. Let's become united in this goal of winning! We can't do it alone. We NEED each other.

Now, that being out of the way, let me go over your stats for this last game! Caden, for a rookie.....WOWZERS!!! Sam flips a page over in his little notebook. Reading outl loud to Caden his stats report: You began in the 2nd inning with a single, you powered up with 2 doubles in the 4th inning, then when we needed it MOST you clobbered one over the wall with a home run in the 8th inning!!! Sam reaches into his pocket, by the way, here is that home run ball you hit. I have the Scruffy Birds retrieving all the home run balls for my teamies & putting them in a ziplock baggie. They come & tell me who the bird was they were chasing it down for & I write it on the bag. They only charge me .25 cents & they're kept happy at the concession stand.
You, Mr. C., are a winner! Yep, you truly are! I'm so honored to be your coach & a big thank you for all that you do for this team. Enough of taking up your time & see you later, tater! Sam leaves with yelling a big YAAHOOO!!

  Hello Caden 3rd Base Bird Of The Silver Sluggers!
Today our team went up against those Mighty Macaws. I knew we had our work cut out for us but I planned to face them with everything we've got! Well, it wasn't enough & we lost to a better team. Now, one bird doesn't win a game & neither does one bird lose a game. I'm gonna call A.M. practices for the next 3 days and again next Monday the 17th. This will be above & beyond
what we need to do. But I want to win!! I think you do, too! I'd be mighty proud to work our way to winning with this good team by my side. I'll look forward to seeing you at the practice field at our team page at 10am. Thank you all for sticking with me & with this ball club. The Silver Sluggers will emerge a better team regardless of us winning OR losing!

I know I'm proud to be a Silver Slugger, your captain, SamIAm!

  Sunday Night & The Rain Has Come BACK!!

  Alright Team, The Baseball Commish Has Been In...
....touch and they have fixed the mix up in the last game we had with the CrackerJack Conures. Nobirdy is switching teams. It was just a typo and we all know how our Moms have done the same thing themselves. This didn't mess up the scoring, all that stays the same. There just ain't gonna be any trading of players.

Now, let's get our noggins readied for next week! Let's hear it for the Silver Sluggers!! YAAAHHHOOOOOOO!!! Captain SamIAm

  Hello Caden~
I am very happy that you stopped by because I had your hatchday down as the 22nd instead of the 23rd. I am also very happy to have you on the list! It's always pleasant to have somebird wish you a happy hatchday!
I hope you are enjoying baseball. I really love watching all the games. My teams first game is tomorrow and I have high hopes that we do very well! It is still fun either way!
I do hope you enjoy your day!
Hugs and a vote ~ Sugar

  Hello Silver Slugger Caden!
Coach SamIAm flying by to remind you of our game against the might Quaker Little Dragons! They may look cute but there's a reason for them being named 'dragons' and it has nothing to do with their breath! They're tough as nails & quick a lightening! Not meaning to scare you, but we'll have our work cut out for us tomorrow. See you then, Caden! Win or lose, I'm proud to be a Silver Slugger! Coach SamIAm
