  Hey Spot!
Come to the movie tent at the KB tonight....we're going to toss our popcorn every time the actors say the word "what"--it should be great fun...not to mention messy. And it'll keep Bon Bon and Parker out of trouble for a few minutes, anyway!

  Hello Spot~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Mom spent way too much time running around today and I didn't like it at all. Everyone else had to go to work and all at different times. Dad was going to leave early but they changed his pick up time. He was gone for an hour and a half this morning and told mom he was going to get some groceries for the truck. He never made it so mom took him to the market before she took him to the truck! Just crazy today and it didn't seem like a day off for mom at all!
The good news is that the NFL said that Taima can lead the Seahawks out of the tunnel for the Superbowl! YAY! I don't know what the Seahawks would do without him! He is a very important member of the team! Even people who don't like the Seahawks have to admit that Taima is the coolest mascot in the entire NFL!
Dad tried putting the old phone, that went through the washer, in a bag of rice to see if it would dry out that way but so far it still won't turn on. I don't suppose it matters now since he has the new one.
I hope your evening is a relaxing one! Mom and I certainly plan on one!

  Hello Spot~
I hope you guys are having a great day! It's been boring around here but that is just fine with me. Mom worked last night and now we have our weekend again! I think she should take 3 days off every week!!
Dad washed his $300 Galaxy phone in the washing machine last night! Guess what? It doesn't work anymore!hahahahaha He is a bigger dork than mom is and that's saying something! He really can't function without his phone. It's a very sad, sad thing!hehehehehehe
He went by Costco and got another one. Let's hope he doesn't wash this one! He got the warranty on it but I do not think it will cover things done to it by dumb users!
I hope you and mom are doing well! Please let her know that you are all in our prayers~
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Spot, may God gently rest your aunt-Jenny
...sometimes it just don't seem fair, but we were never promised fairness! Our heart reaches out to aunt Rea, may her pain of loss subside quickly, we know that pain, go with God! We are in for one more day of overcast, but our temps will be very moderate, in the high thirties and lower forties for at least the next week, that is very do-able! Dad has a VA appointment at the QC Prosthetics place to get some new diabetic shoes and compression stockings, but that won't take to long, hopefully! Happy hump day my dear friends, be good for your mom & dad, and don't forget to love each other! Give our love to all the happy souls in your loving home, see ya tomorrow...

Love ya forever, Jenny, Angel Christy, & our Dallas group

I hope you had a wonderful day! My little Budgie cousin Paige flew to the Rainbow Bridge this morning. Mom's sister took her and her fisters, Pru and Piper, in last year. She isn't really sure how old they are. It's very sad but at least I know she was loved and had a good life for the last year. The people who had them before never spent any time with them and they didn't even have any toys!
Dad made it home today so he'll be here for a day or two. He has a doctor's appointment in the morning. He has to fast for 12 hours so he only has an hour to go! He had better get to eating!hahahaha He wanted pizza so I am getting another lovely piece of crust today! That is twice in a week! Mom told me not to get use to it! Bummer!!!
Enjoy your evening! Sleep tight and sweet dreams!

  Hello Spot~
I hope you had a fantastic day! We did!! Now that mom's heart rate is back to an acceptable level I am having her blog for me! For a few minutes there I thought I was going to have to perform parrot resuscitation on her! That is when you bite them really hard to bring them back for the edge of hysteria!hahahaha HEY! It works!
What a great game between two awesome teams! The Packers should be very proud of themselves! This is what a championship game should look like! Now we have to see if it's the Colts or the Patriots who will be joining us in Arizona!
The day started out crazy so it is appropriate that it continued to be a crazy Sunday!
Jennifer was burning a candle in her room. She keeps the door closed so that no smoke comes out but she had her window open and the wind was blowing so some of the smoke blew into the hallway ans set off the smoke alarm! The dog freaked out and peed all the way down the hallway! I was screeching and it was pandemonium around here! Mom calmed me down and cleaned up after Mandy and gave us all snacks! We are hoping for a nice quiet evening!
I hope you have a great evening too! Your mom's aunt is still in our prayers! We hope she is getting better!

Makana hugs her friends. I'm sorry I haven't been payin attention like I should at the KB and being so slow getting back, but mom's finally got things going with the internet AND computers. long story, but the last 3 days were not mom's fault but the cable guy that didn't turn on the modem for wifi. Yep it was off and it was not pretty. We are set again.
Now I hope you fly by because I'm planning on ice sculptures tomorrow. I would love to have a theme The Beach though. So think up a good one. Gotta fly now. Lots to remind about the theme. See ya.

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Happy TGI Blue Friday! There are lots of events going on up here before the big game on Sunday. It is going to be an exciting weekend up here!
Jennifer's boss sold her playoff tickets for $500 a piece!!! She is a season ticket holder so they always get a chance to buy their seats first. She is going to use the money to buy plane tickets to Arizona to see the Superbowl! She is that confident that the Seahawks are going to the Superbowl again! I must say that I agree with her! GO HAWKS!!!
It's a pretty quiet day around here. Everyone else is at work and when Ian gets off he is going to take the Sounder train up to Seattle to visit with his friends again. The one who lives in Pennsylvania is going home tomorrow.
Me and mom are going to continue with cleaning and do some cooking. Mom is off for 3 days after Saturday night so we don't need to cook too many meals. I think baking some cornbread would be an excellent idea!!
I hope your day is just perfect!! Leaving a vote and a big hug! We have your mom's aunt in our prayers and we hope she is recovering. Pneumonia is a very serious thing and we hope that the antibiotics work quickly!!!

  Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. We don't really know if I am a boy or girl. That's what we told Snowflake's mom. I never actually got the blood work to get tested. We have it down for a girl since I am small but that is just for BC because we have to put something down and that's what we thought I was at the time.

  Hello Spot~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!!
You will not believe what happened here last night! Mom was cleaning up the kitchen and put the trash bag out on the balcony. Sneaky Merlin went out there without mom knowing and jumped over the balcony!! He is perfectly fine, which is a miracle, but mom says unless he has his harness and leash on he is never going out there again!
She noticed he was missing and went to check the balcony and didn't see him. She checked the whole house out and he was no where to be found. She looked over the balcony but did not see him. She grabbed her jacket and went around the building, climbed down the embankment, sloshes through the moat and climbed up the wall to get to the downstairs neighbors patio. She saw Merlin run onto the patio and called to him. He came right to her! She bundled him up in her coat and brought him back home! She was muddy and banged her knee while climbing the wall but at least Merlin was okay. She checked every inch of that cat and he is just fine! Mom explained to him that cat do not really have 9 lives! He stuck to her like velcro for the rest of the night. Just before we went to bed, he was at the door howling to go out! Not too smart, is he? He sure is one lucky cat because it was only a few minutes between the time mom put the trash bag out and going downstairs to find him! If he had done that when mom wasn't here, no one else would have noticed him gone!
Have a fabulous evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Spot~
I hope you are having a great day! I apologize for the boring
C/P but things have been crazy around here for the past few days. Getting dad ready to head out is always crazy! He always thinks of something he wants to get before he goes and then leaves stuff behind as well! He'll be having to get himself a new soup bowl and some coffee creamer because they are both sitting on the kitchen counter!hahahahahahaha
There has been the usual clean up after the dog and giving her a bath too! She is doing pretty well but manages to pee off the edges of the wee wee pads! Mom has 4 of them taped together but she still manages to miss part of it! She is still happy and eating up a storm so this is not such a big thing to deal with. It's just takes some time!
This morning we were all set to get my notes out when Ian asked to use the computer. Something happened to his and he needed to download something to fix it! It took an hour!
Right when mom sat down at the computer, I screamed! Mom got me out of the cage and checked me out! I was chewing up wood and she was afraid I had hurt my beak. I let her check out the beak and look at my tongue but there was no way I was going to let her touch it!! Who knows where those hands have been!!
Anyway, nothing seems to be damaged but I insisted on sitting on mom's lap for a long time! I had a fright and I needed to be fussed over! I'm back in the play cage now, having an apple and a goldfish cracker! Perhaps tomorrow will be a bit quieter and I can get a better note out! I just don't want any bird to think I have forgotten them! Never gonna happen!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Hope your New Year's day was a fun one. Ours sure was! Mom had a bunch of people over, and we all love to show off for guests. As promised, here are some pics of the flower show at Phipps. I kept all the snowpeople pics on my page, they were all made of epiphytes, or air plants! There are also some on Falco's page and Willie's page. On Falco's page, there are also 2 shots of the new purse mom's daughter gave her, and the portrait that Lena painted of mom.
This morning at the center mom cleaned the raccoons and ground hogs and bats again. The good news is that one of the other volunteers came in to help her feed the bats, otherwise she would probably still be there!
I hope today brings you lots of good cuddles and scritches! Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Spot
It's almost over, and it's hard to believe! This month went really fast, and there's still more to see. Thanks for your support, I can't wait to share today and tomorrow with you.
Today we're visiting back in Oakland, the Carnegie Museum of Art and the Music Hall. My first 4 pics are the art museum, a piece of art, the grand staircase, the welcome center and sculpture court outdoors, and the Hall of Architecture, where the presepio and trees are set up each year. The Art and Natural history museum overlap territory, as the Halls of Sculpture and Architecture are beyond the entry to Dinosaur Hall.
The next 4 pics are the Music Hall. It's a gem of a hall, in the same building as the art and natural history museums as well as the library. The first view is from the stage to the seats, and the second is from the seats to the stage. The next 2 pics show the foyer, which is made of imported marble, and gilded metalwork.
It's a glorious place to hold graduations as well as concerts.
I'll be back tomorrow with the natural history museum and a stop off at a place that's near where we live, but a little out from the city. Hope you are having a great day. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Spot
Thanks once more for your ongoing support. It's nearly the end of the month and we're still going strong with things to see and do here in Pittsburgh.
Today we are starting what mom will call the Carnegie run. As you already know, Andrew Carnegie was good at giving away things after he accumulated his wealth. One of his most valuable and long lasting gifts is his gift of literacy to a largely blue collar immigrant crowd in his lifetime. He donated libraries to many of the small towns around Pittsburgh, as well as the great library connected to the museum/music hall complex in Oakland. Below are some of the other libraries, in pics 5 and 6, these are in Homestead (a mill town) and Homewood, where a lot of steel workers lived with their families. The third pic is the old library downtown, nestled among the older buildings off Grant Street. The third pic is a newly renovated Carnegie library, and the first two pics show the outside and one of the reading rooms inside the Oakland branch. We are very proud of the Carnegie Library system in our town.
See you tomorrow! Hope you are having a great day. Hugs, Peppino

  Hello Spot~
I hope you had a wonderful day and I hope your Christmas was fabulous!
Mom got home late from work this morning so my schedule was all off! At first I was pretty upset but it turned out okay since mom doesn't have to work tonight and spent lots of time with me.
There were lots of people at the store very early today. All the Christmas stuff was 75% off so they were grabbing stuff right and left! Mom managed to grab the cards for next year and two really nice shopping bags. They have Christmas pictures on them but who cares! One of them will be our new book bag since they are water proof. The old one is starting to rip on the bottom!
There was no traffic to report on the radio news show this morning so they were reporting when each mall was going to open!!! You would think everyone would be tired of shopping at this point but it certainly didn't look that way! Ian was suppose to work 4 hours today but he ended up staying for 8 since it was so busy. All those little kids who got gift cards could not wait to get to Toys R Us and find a new treasure! It's always exciting when they have their own money to spend!
Enjoy your evening and I hope it's just perfect!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Spot
Thanks for your continuing support! I couldn't do it without your votes.
We are back at Phipps today for the rest of the inside peek at the Christmas flower show and light display. Every year it's different, and mom didn't take pics of the miniature train display that's there as well. But here are some of the decorated hobby horses and some great poinsettia colors. The first pic shows lighted snowflakes hanging from the ceiling, too. There are candlelight tours there during the Christmas season, but we don't have pics of those. I hope if you come to Pittsburgh that you will visit Phipps Conservatory, it's a wonderful place to walk through all year round.
Mom and her family are going back there Monday to see this year's light and flower show. The pics I've shown you are from last year! I know, that's cheating, but mom didn't know when she would get there this year, and we wanted to show off one of the area's best features in its holiday splendor. See you tomorrow, hope you had a great Christmas day! Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Spot
I never heard of a lot of things my first year. Now I know I have it good.
This is it! Santa Bird comes tonight .... I'm so eggcited! I left some hot chocolate and cookies for him. I did see the deer looking at our house, maybe they were sent ahead to see if I'm sleeping.
My parronts and I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas.
Hugs
Chyna

Come visit me, Chyna on vacation & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  HI SPOT
Parrot’s Night Before Christmas
by Cheryl Tamburri
T’was the night before Christmas, so much to do!
Not a creature was stirring not even the Too
The stockings were hung, the parrots were bathed,
To wrap the bird toys, my efforts enslaved.
The cages were covered, the birds all in bed,
While visions of almonds danced in their heads.
And mom in her bird shirt, dressed looking poor,
on hands and knees cleaning poop off the floor.
When out on the lawn there arose such a chatter!
we jumped up to see just what was the matter
we peered out the window, what now to endure!
A Macaw in a sleigh, pulled by tiny Conures!
A Scarlet, he was, in a jaunty red hat,
I thought to myself, Good Lord, look at that!
He flew off the sleigh, and into my room,
bringing foot toys and blocks and a raffia broom.
we gasped in pure wonder; and we love Santa too
‘Oh yes!’, said the Scarlet, ‘i love you!’
“They love and they play and to owners they chat,
How many folks have pets just like that?!”
The joy parrots bring you all through the year,
The ones without out homes that are equally dear,
They deserve affection and enrichment all year,
But tonight especially, in hearts hold them all near.
The wise old bird gave a nod and a wink;
After dropping off toys he was gone in a blink!
And we thought to ourselves, we are blessed, yes indeed;
and to people who take take rescue birds, and to fill all their needs
He flew to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And off they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim as they flew out of sight
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

love Cori and Boo Boo

  Hi Spot, BonBon&Mama Rea
I loved that little poem you sent me!Now Bon Bon had better be a good birdie and not talk like that or Santa Bird would surely pass her by and I wouldn't want to see that happen at all!

  Hi Spot
Come to Pittsburgh, it's a wonderful place to visit.
Thanks for your votes daily. I can't be BOTM without your support.
Today we are going to Phipps Conservatory, which is located in Schenley Park. I wanted to take you there for their Christmas show of lights in the outdoor garden as well as show some indoor spaces. Phipps is a gigantic Victorian greenhouse, with different rooms for different plants. There are the palm room, the fern room, the butterfly room, the orchid room, the desert room, the tropical rainforest room, etc. There are also some gorgeous indoor spaces that people use for weddings. Today though, we are looking at part of their Christmas flower and light show. The first 3 pics are outdoors in the gardens at Phipps. The fourth and fifth pics show 2 of the indoor spaces. I'll try to be back tomorrow with more pics of Phipps, or at least to wish a Merry Christmas to everybirdie. Be good, tonight is the night Santa Bird comes to call! Hugs, Peppino

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, PEPPINO, Happy New Year, Everybirdie, Divo & Falco, Happy New Year Everybirdie!.
