Hi! My name is Cu-Bird -Justice for Ozzi

I am a Timneh African Grey from Newton, NJ.

Pippin, Perfect Little Pippin, Peeps, Cute Bird, Crouton, Junior, Mini Me and Brat Bird, African Princess . My full name is Cuchulain, a mythical Irish warrior is my given name by my former owners. Mom thinks Cu Bird is short for "Cute Bird"-can't argue that!

12 years old   F

Timneh African Grey

Papaya, turkey breast, watermelon, pizza crust.

Anyone's shoulder, I'm a social climber and on that T stand! I also like to snuggle and cuddle with mom.

I hate to be left out of all the fun! My frother Blue--gets real nosey and comes over on my cage. Now that I have moved, I am Elvis's neighbor, so much happier now!

I get to go all over the place with mom. I also get to sit on Aunt Jeanne's shoulder when she visits. I love the formation of the African Delegation here with my fister Miranda and my frother Boomer who moved in with Meiko's flock. It is much fun with culture, history and music. And we get to watch movies with the family at night!

I would rather escape from my cage and hang out on the T stand. I now have mastered the art of getting on the bottom of my cage and chasing the mop when mom does the floor. I was rescues as a boy and on 12/31/13 I laid an egg!.

"I'm NOT Miranda!" "And, I'm definitely NOT a Paterson grey pigeon!".

  Hi CuBird
Mom is trying to do too much. She got her new humidifier the other day and came home exhausted. Then yesterday she had to make another trip into town. Two days of silent votes... and no computer time for me. Today we are back on track. She went to bed early and woke up with the sun. It looks to be a good day, but very cold again. We will have her all to ourselves in the bird room, with the promise of an afternoon movie and some snuggles. See you tomorrow... wing hugs and beaky kisses from TiPaul

  Hi CuBird
Last night was incredibly awesome! I do hope your fibblings did not bother you too much when they arrived home. It is too bad your mom cannot make a short visit to our place - we presently have a few visiting Greys here until sometime this week, one being one of the babies Mom raised. he has grown into such a character. he is so like his brother from another generation (a year or so older). Mom took a double take when he found his way into the kitchen. He looks so much like Leroy - and how the heck could it have been any birdy other than Leroy finding his way around the house. Mom was in shock. He got out of his cage and found her, just like that. Pepper helped to raise them, and pepper must have a lock on his cage, if that explains things. please direct your Mom to the bottom of my page, where your flower basket is sitting there waiting for you to pick it up, and put it on your own page. :)
We had all our cages cleaned yesterday and today, and it is about bedtime for both mom and perch time for me. Here is the rest of the news in copy and paste form... with a couple of changes.
It is still cold here... they were promising us 0 but it never got there yet. Tomorrow it is back to real freezing temperatures again. Mom decided to get another humidifier and looked online for one like we have - and she found someone selling one at a super price. She was laughing because she just sold a pair of dance boots to a friend, a pair she had bought which are too small for her because she has to wear special inserts when she dances. I don't get the joke - a pair of boots for a humidifier. Well, she said it works for her, and it will help her sinuses... see you tomorrow. wing hugs and beaky kisses from TiPaul

  Jasper pulls in to the driveway
and TiPaul and CuBird get out of the car and slowly head to the front door. It is very quiet - the rest of the flock has not come home yet, but TiPaul knows CuBird will get teased by certain birds. Thank you very much again for coming with me tonight. I had a wonderful time, even though we did get kicked off BC at one point when everything slowed down. TiPaul leans over and gently gives CuBird a beaky kiss on her cheek... and says I will see you again very soon, I hope. He turns and heads to the waiting car, turning back once to smile and wave to the lovely bid he has just spent the most wonderful evening with.

  TiPaul arrives at the home
of CuBird and nervously knocks on the door... Good evening Ms Tanya, I am TiPaul, here to pick up CuBird to take her to the milonga this evening. My fister Jasper will be driving, and she is a very good driver or Mom would not have allowed her to get her licence. Micky is also coming along, because we have practiced a line dance which we are hoping to do this evening. Oh CuBird - you look LOVELY! TiPaul hands this gorgeous Grey a basket of flowers that Jasper wanted to eat on the way here... (the picture is on my page and you can download it to put it on your page) and Micky was ready to bite her tail every time she looked at them. I guess we should be on our way now...we won't be too late. I have Mom's cell phone, so we can phone just in case there is a change of plans. See you later. TiPaul takes CuBird's wing gently, and off they go to the car, where Jasper is waiting patiently, with the back door open, ready for the happy couple to get in... Micky excitedly says hi while Jasper gets in, reminds everybirdy to put on their seat belts and they are on their way...

  Hello my Sweets...
I am all ready for tonight, but Mom says it is not yet time. She still has a few more cages to clean, and our bowls are all ready to put in our cages. She is doing pretty good considering she started late today. Jasper is our chauffeur tonight - she is looking for any reason to get away from Pepper and she also knows the way to the milonga. Besides, she can drive. hihihi I will be by to pick you up just before 8PM, since it only takes a few minutes to get to the Milonga the route Jasper takes. See you in just a few hours... I can't wait! Wing hugs and beaky kisses... TiPaul

  Good morning Sweetie...
I cannot wait until tonight. Mom got home from dancing last night and we did a few blogs but she was tired and wanted to get some sleep, because today is the day she cleans all our cages, and she will be working fast so as to finish early, and relax before being able to type for me all evening. Gotta love Mom. She usually sets up a movie in the living room for a few of the others who will sit nicely and watch, and I can sit with her and off we go to the Milonga. I can pick you up along the way, or we can meet there - whatever works better for you. It starts at 8 o'clock, and I am not going to get there way ahead of time. Have you thought about your New Year resolution? It has to be something we can keep, and they will be checking on us throughout the year. The rest of my flock backed out of this one. Besides, there was one time Mom went nuts typing for more than one of us for something - maybe it was a baseball game, because at the milongas not that many birds talked to us. They seem to hang out in clicks. That is okay with me. I am looking forward to spending the time with YOU! Mom said she will get me back here at the computer to read my blogs later on... because we are in the same time zone. Love and beaky kisses from TiPaul

  Hi CuBird
To heck with the macaws, of course we are in charge. You have never met Pepper. You don't WANT to meet Pepper. he tries to rule the bird room. he is the only bird that can stand atop of any of the bird cages and have the macaws go as quiet as can be. Mom is surprised by it too but that bird is something else. hihihi He also has the other Greys, except for me, doing what he tells them to do.

Mom went to town yesterday for an appointment, and when she got home, after fighting the traffic, she fed us, spent time with us, and then got the others settled in for the night. We started in on blogs and she looked at me and I saw it in her face - she was beat. I told her we would do my blogs while she has her coffee this morning. She gave me kisses and I think she probably was asleep before I was. Today she is typing up a storm, faster than I can think. It is going to be a busy day, and another cold one for us, but mom will be home with us all day. See you tomorrow... wing hugs and beaky kisses from TiPaul

  Hi CuBird
I would like to thank you so much for supporting me on my quest to get into the 10K HOF, which I did yesterday, and for coming by to party with me. I think it is still going on strong, which is fine by me. I love a good party! Dad pointed out that I am the first bird from Canada, or out of the USA to get in, which makes it more exciting. Now, if only the world would recognize how we can all get along! Hugs and beaky kisses from TiPaul

  Hi CuBird my sweets
I did not know you had a bitten toe too. Was it just a minor bite or did you lose a part of your toe? Either way, that is an ouch! Those bigger birds or even those of the same size can be vicious at times and they are only protecting their own space. Mom wants to get plexi-glass to put atop of each of our cages so if one of us lands on another bird<s cage, we are safe. The problem is sometimes one bird will land on the side bars and you should see Mom run. She is fast! She once knocked over the bucket of water, nearly flew into another cage trying to catch a bird, but she caught the culprit, and git whoever it was into his or her cage and then cleaned up the water. We had a clean floor. hihihi


We don't know who is more tired from all this partying - us or Mom. Somebirdy said something about Mom not being at the castle Friday. She was... that is why she was so tired. She spent time watching us having fun before she went off dancing. Those castle parties are wild, and today with Pepper there, she decided to come home with me and do some serious blogging. Today our friends dropped off their birds to stay with Mom and us for 10 days while they are on vacation where it is hot. one of the birds is a Grey that mom raised, and he did something he never before - he pinched her. He was all happy to see her, and was up on her shoulder, and here was Mom carrying ceramic food bowls into the bird room. Well, he climbed down to see what was in them and he got her right on the skin between the thumb and index finger. Mom was so thankful this was not her left hand, which is the one she will be getting operated, because she would have dropped the bowl in that hand. That hurt! hihihi A certain bird had time out and went back to his cage for a little while. HE looked at Mom and said *I'm a bad bad bird.* Mom did everything not to crack up laughing. Pepper said heh heh heh. Mom got out of that room fast - she could not control herself. Pepper did have some say in raising the little ones way back then. So did I. I showed them how good it is to eat all sorts of veggies. Well, tomorrow might be the Magic day for me. I need less than 25 votes now. Thanks for all your support! Love and beaky kisses from TiPaul

  Hi Sweetie!
I just can't master flying. The other birds here - the Greys, the Amazons, they can fly, but me - I only grew my feathers back so maybe in time if I keep trying. I don't mind walking. I have been doing it all my life, but the others seem to enjoy flying. It looks like fun.

Mom got in really late last night from dancing, and was so tired, I told her just to get to sleep - we will do my blogs today. Some dancers from other schools where Mom and Dad almost moved, were there and they kept asking for more special requests. It was greyt fun for all. Today was Pepper's hatchday and we had a small party here and Pepper did not forget to ask for a new toy, but Mom had one all ready for him. She told me that when I get into the 10K club, she has a new shredder toy for me - one of the big ones that I especially love. I had so much fun in the castle yesterday with King Peppino and all my friends who came to visit me and that includes YOU! Thanks again for all your support. Yesterday, being BOTD was a bonus to my journey to the 10K HOF club. I never expected that. With love and beaky kisses from TiPaul.

  Hi Sweetie... ummm Cubird
TiPaul cannot stop laughing. So, Miranda got potted eh. We won't tell her we were laughing. You see - I finally stopped mutilating my feathers, and they are grown back except for the odd one that I will chew, just to remind myself I know how, but Mom gives me the dirty look and then I give her kisses, so it's okay. Even with all my feathers, I can't fly. I never could, and I have tried a few times, and I Know if I work at it, one day I will be able to. Mom's intention is to put a harness on me this summer, and get me outside in the open where she can run with me like she did back a few years ago when she raised the babies. Even if I get liftoff, it will be a good thing. If that happens, she will get me up to speed by using a bicycle or something to allow her to keep up with me. She really wants to teach me, knowing it will give me self esteem.
As for the milonga - I am excited too... A week this Saturday. I told Mom not to make any plans for that night!

After getting up twice in the night to add wood to the stove, Mom is ready for an early night of it. Her dance class was cancelled because too many people could not get their cars started. It is supposed to warm up in the night, which is good - we need a break from minus 40 temperatures. I spent time renovating my cage today, after it was so clean the other day. It is almost back to how I like it, but the weekend is coming fast which means it will be thorough cleaning time again. We will be having visitors come this weekend to stay for a week, but I will still get my blogging time with Mom. But now, I am going to get some scritches, and then have a snack and get to my perch which is nice and warm. Thanks again for all your support. With love and beaky kisses from TiPaul

  Hi CuBird
I really miss you, girl, haven't seen you since before your folks were on that cruise! Hope all is well with you and we haven't done anything to hurt feelings. Pino is so happy to be in the castle this month, and it's thanks to birds like Carter that helped him to get there.
It's 3 outside right now, and the dogs were even cold for their walk this morning. Poor furry things were holding up their feet! They won't wear boots, but they will wear sweaters, so mom thinks it was just their feet that were cold.
Mom has a few errands but if it doesn't warm up, they will wait for a warmer day. She finally got her Christmas Thank you cards out today and wrote them. It's about time, right? Also, her eyes aren't dilated today so she can read and write blogs much better than yesterday. I hope you are having a fun day and getting lots of attention and warm cuddles. Hugs, Falco

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

  Hi Cubird
I am so excited, doubly so now... that you said yes to going to the milonga with me! We will most definitely have a GREYT time! Have you thought about a New Years Resolution yet... one that you will keep? I can't think of any that I can be sure to keep ALL year round. That is a hard one. I am sure one will come to me when they ask me at the Milonga.

Mom took Marley to the vet today, and got her beak filed. She looks real pretty now. Heck, she is always pretty. After we all helped Mom and Dad eat their Shish Taouk dinners, I helped Mom get all the others to sleep and it was finally time for the computer. Of course there were distractions... the phone not working because the line froze, and other crazy things, but we are here now. Not every birdy has ridiculously cold weather like we do, and I don't think you want it either. it may be winter, but this is awful. It is supposed to go down to minus 32 Celsius, which is minus 25.6 Fahrenheit and with the wind chill it is minus 40 which is the same in either C or F. When is it going to be spring? Mom says not for a long time. Thanks for coming by... see you tomorrow. Love and beaky kisses from TiPaul

  Hi there Cu-Bird
So, you like to party. It seems there is another milonga coming up on Saturday the 17th... it should be very interesting. We have to make a New Years resolution - one we will keep. That is going to be a tough one. They are going to check up on us. Anyhow, would you like to go with me? I don't have the final details on it yet - I guess it will be posted on the Calendar Page. That is where Mom read me all that I know so far. It should be fun. I know Jasper's resolution and she has not even made it yet. I will tell her what it is when she needs to think of one and I am sure she can keep it all year round. hihihi

We are freezing here. Not in the house of course, but outdoors it is minus 29 Celcius, which is minus 20.2 Farenheit which is beyond cold. This is the coldest night we have had so far and it is getting colder. Mom has a good fire going in the stove and she just added another log. I like to watch it, but from far away. She stayed home all day today, and spent lots of time with us. She also downloaded some pictures people sent her from when she went away one weekend - she is making the DVDs for those who want them. She is behind in a few things she has to get done, but getting caught up slowly. Next month she will finally get her wrist surgery done, so will be out of commission for a couple of weeks. The doctor scheduled her in since the injection did not work. Knowing mom, she will get everything done, just slower. She has already requested a full cast instead of just a bandage, so we cannot bite away at it, and it can heal properly without her moving the wrong way. The fun part will be the drive home from the hospital because Dad doesn't drive anymore and the car is manual. But now, she is going to help me finish up here, and we are going to sleep. our room is very warm - the heating in there is a different system, and Mom is thinking about moving in with us for the night. See you tomorrow... love from TiPaul

  Morning Cu-Bird, from Ms LaLo
Our operative words for today are 'cold and snow', but we are good with all that! Our playoff choices did not do so well yesterday, I hope today's picks turn out better! Between playtime, toy making, and games, our dad finished putting the rest of our Christmas decorations away, we have a happy home but it looks barren without them! We are making a commitment to keep our daddy around for another year, he loves life so much, but does not fear death, as he is looking forward to a reunion with his beloved Christine! Have a nice Christy day, her heart is making a joyful noise on this and all Sundays, and give my love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

Love forever more, from Ms LaLo & our Dallas family

  Hi Cu-Bird
I do hope you will come to the party when I get my 10K vote. It will surely add to the excitement to have you there.
TiPaul here...Mom is down in the dumps but I am cheering her up. She got home later than planned from the funeral because the snowstorm started when she was about halfway home. Things started late, and everyone stood around talking afterwards, so that explained the delay. She was happy to see people she had not seen in a while and they were just as happy to see her, except it is hard at a sad occasion. When she got home, the world stopped so she could feed us and spend some time with us for a while. She made leftovers for dinner for her and Dad and that was good enough. We are supposed to get at least a foot of snow, which is not all that much but the snow is going to change to freezing rain sometime tomorrow. That is where the problems start. We have mom all to ourselves tomorrow - she is going to start a thorough scrubbing of all our cages, which means a day in the bird room. That also means singing and dancing and playing games along the way too. Thanks for stopping by. See you tomorrow! Love and beaky kisses from TiPaul

  Hi CuBird
TiPaul here... mom has to be up really early tomorrow, she has to go to a funeral, for her former dance teacher. She is keeping her mind occupied with me now, but she is pretty sad. We are in for a snowstorm starting tomorrow afternoon, and I hope she gets home before the worst of it, which will probably be at night, and then we are getting freezing rain on Sunday. This winter has been crazy so far. See you tomorrow. Love and Hugs from Quebec.

Happy New Year from TiPaul! Thanks for stopping by to visit. I am so close to 10K, I am beginning to get excited. Mom and Dad were at a party last night, and came home late, so I took the night off from blogging. Today however, it is back to my goal. Of course, it is fun chatting with my friend, and finding out what their New Years Eves were like too. Mom doesn't know it, but we had a party of our own once they went out After all, we had to have fun too! Looking forward to seeing you again real soon. With love from a snowy Quebec

  Hi Cu-Bird
What a nice invitation. I told Mom to hurry up and type so I could get on over to spend some time with you. It was my pleasure to bring you your gift hat we all received the other night. I am free of blogs for tonight. I packed up some nuriberries for us to share too, and a container of one of my favorite juices - papaya. I had to almost sneak it out of the house because Leroy loves the stuff and I think he can smell it in a sealed container. It is so hard t believe this year is coning to an end so quickly. I wish mom and Dad were not going out tomorrow night, or I would have asked you to come with me to he party that Chipper is having at the KB, but we are all going to be cagebound and lights will be on a timer and turned off an early hour, so we will get a good nights sleep unless we miraculously pull off a party of our own. So tempting... Love and wing hugs from TiPaul

  Hi CuBird... TiPaul here
I just stopped by to thank you for spending time with me last night at the milonga...it was greyt fun, dancing and all. The KB was fun too, and with all that food - I had enough for today too. The only one who ate all day today was Floop, but he is a non stop eater. I hope you enjoyed yesterday as much as I did. :) Here is your gift bag, which you forgot in the car, and I have packed you some nutriberries... Mom just got in a new supply and I asked her for some of each kind for you. Have a good night. Hugs from TiPaul

Our BC is acting very strangely today, and is slower for some reason! Oh well, at least it is working for now so I guess we shouldn't complain! It is really dark and overcast here today, I hope it lightens up a bit pretty soon! California is finally getting some rain, but why so much all of a sudden, from Seattle to San Diego, we are praying for our friends to be safe through it all!

...I love you so much, and aunt Tanya as well, she can do no wrong in the minds of the Dallas family! We have the large pic of the "Messenger" in the family room, seny by your sweet momma T! One on our concerns is what to do with it after daddy passes, no one else will understand or even care! Your mom is an Angel, some things are just meant to be! This is the day we remember the attack on Pearl Harbor, and our forced entry into WWll, we remember that date with solemn reverence! This is also the day that in 2007, Jenny joined our precious Bird Channel, my goodness, that seems like an eternity ago, but we have made so many wonderful friends, bird and human, but managed to make a few friends angry with us along the way! It has been a fun trip though, we wouldn't have missed it for the world! Have a great Sunday and enjoy your football games if you watch them, we are going to collect our thoughts and try to have a relaxing day, please give our love to all in your Sunday home, see ya tomorrow...

Love on this day and always, Ms LaLo, Jen, Daddy & our patriotic Dallas family

  Hi CuBird
This morning mom got to do the recovery room at the center, YAY! Jess, the staff member who hadn't got the results of her rabies titer, finally got her results so she was able to do the RVS animals today. Mom doesn't mind, but it was getting old. So, today mom did the recovery room. For those of you asking about the pigeon from last week, he/she has gained about 50 grams, and seems to be beefing up and feeling better. Mom had to towel him/her to weigh this morning and the pigeon was struggling, which is always a good thing.
There was a snapping turtle, a wood turtle, and 2 box turtles in there, too, along with a mallard hybrid duck and a red tailed hawk. It was so good to be taking care of animals other than raccoons and bats. Before mom left this morning, someone brought in a ground hog, so he/she will be added to the RVS room, too.
After that, mom went to the hardware store to get a new drain cover for the basement drain, and to the bank to cash a check. Now she's with us for the rest of the day. I think she wants to finish the latest Daniel Silva book, and start a new book. Maybe she'll sew, though, you never know.
It snowed here yesterday, and this morning there was a coating of snow on the lawn, but none on the street. I hope that doesn't mean winter is coming any sooner, we all hate the cold here! I hope you are having a good day, and getting lots of love. Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
Mom likes Carol and Gary too! Carol was at Parrot Palooza with a table, so she got to see her before the cruise. We are so glad your folks had a good time. Did they meet Mimi and Linda, too? I bet Cappy's folks were a lot of fun.
Yesterday mom needed another shot for that wet macular degeneration condition. I guess it is chronic. She's been 4 months with no shots, so the doctor thought that was good. Anyway, now that she has the shot, she has to go back in January, which means she's clear to do all the Christmas things without worrying about losing a day. Her eye was irritated, runny and itchy all day long. Today it's better, though.
Mom did 2 tours at the museum today, the first with 7th grade kids on biomes and climate change, and the second with a group of home schooled kids. The first tour was fun, and mom is confident about doing that again. It was an experience where mom introduced the topic, handed out notebooks and pencils to the students, and let them explore the dioramas on the second floor. At the end, they all got back together and shared their notes. It was her first experience with that kind of tour, so she wasn't sure about it, but it worked out well. She got to engage with all the kids in their exploration time instead of just talking the whole hour. The second one, well the kids are home schooled, so don't have a lot of social skills, but they were engaged, except for the youngest ones.
It's been really cold here for the past couple of days, or at least it feels really cold. On Tuesday it was 70, but yesterday it barely hit 42, and today it's about 38, so it feels pretty cold. I hope you are enjoying some better weather.
Congratulations to Popeye and Jenny Lynn for hitting milestone votes!
Have a wonderful day and get lots of love. Hugs, Falco

  Hello Ms Cute-Bird, from your pal Ms Lalo
I think I can officially say we are being Vortexed (is that a word), baby it's cold outside! Dad just rolled the trash can around to the alley and came in shivering, what a weenie! Speaking of weenies, when we go to the Vet's place, we must always act like we are being killed, otherwise no special attention and treats, and we all know it don't hurt a bit, LOL! Happy throwback Thursday to all of you, we have a ton of older pics from way back when, but dad needs to scan them on to our computer so we can share! Wishing you all a blessed day, life is so good, but oh so short, cherish every second of God's gift to you, his master plan is intentional, give my love to all in your home, see ya tomorrow...

Thursday love from Ms LaLo & our family

PS~Regarding the 25K votes, we are grateful for every single one that all of you have sent! We really looked forward to the 10K number, but after that, dad said it was overkill, and almost obscene! We wish all who are still shooting for a specific number, all the luck in the world, and we lovingly support you all in your quest...

  Hi Sweet Ms Cu-Bird, from Ms LaLo
Let me just say, none of us are to happy with the time change! We are all creatures of habit, and this whole time thing has us all our body clocks out of whack, as far as lights on and lights out, weird! Poor dad is wondering around like a Zombie or something! We are currently at 35 degrees and will warm to the low 50's! Ms "U" Ruby has started what will be a very successful journey to the magic castle, but I remember when she was sitting on my dad's arm in aunt Denise's back yard, I DID NOT LIKE THAT AT ALL, but she was so sweet, both of them were apprehensive, while I was in the aviary with RaneBeau & Jake, they are big boys, but a I love them both! Enjoy your Sunday, we full well intend to, and give my love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

Forever love on Sundays & always-Ms LaLo & my beloved family

Mom says everyone is staying at the Sheraton in Bucks County, and doesn't know where dinner will be yet. Some of the parronts live around there, hopefully they will have some good ideas. We think your mom should stay overnight, too, then they can all decide together where to eat. Remember mom's offer, please, if needed.
Mom just got back from an outdoor event at Hartwood Acres, a beautiful part of the Burgh. It's called Hay Days and it stresses sustainable local shopping, energy, use of resources, and lots of green things in our area. Mom brought home a free book given by the library and a seed ball to plant for next year, a flower that attracts bees. 4 volunteers and the education director signed up for the event, so mom and her volunteer partner just did the first 3 hours, and the other 2 volunteers will do the last 2.
Chelsea Possum was a huge hit! Everyone flocked around to see her, get a free zipper pull or bottle opener, depending on whether the visitor was juvenile or adult.Mom even got asked about volunteer opportunities, which is great. All in all, it was a good day, complete with sunny weather.
Tonight is the milonga, and we can't wait to get there. It should be fun with the Rodeo Queen and her 4 Princesses presiding over the mutton busting and barrel racing events. Hope to see you there! Have a great day, whether or not you are attending tonight, though. Hugs, Falco

We know Cookie's mom, Mary is coming for it, maybe she would share a room? Please talk your mom into coming!!! We are all hoping the moms get to meet each other this year. Mom is really hoping Aunt Rose and Nana can come too.
Yesterday mom was able to thread the sewing machine a couple of times to do the 2 duvets, and start on a Christmas project, of all things. She had some things cut out and stacked on the machine since March, so she's going to get that done before she cuts out anything else. I am still taking my meds, fighting every step of the way, but there are only 5 days left, mom said. Of course, she will still use that healing balm even after I finish the oral antibiotics.
Not much else going on today, we get our cages cleaned, probably after mom gets home from dinner with her sister. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
Mom is really at a loss here, because she's riding with Aunt Jane. We didn't know you were that far from Parrot Palooza. Your mom knows the state better than we do, so maybe she can come up with a plan. Mom says she could stay overnight at the hotel, mom will pay for it if your mom can't, then she would be able to meet everybody. I think all the moms want to meet your mom, for sure. I know my mom and Aunt Robin do! Work on her, tell her to call my mom, and make a reservation! Or, at least, find a spot where everyone can meet, and mom will try to talk Aunt Jane into it. Robin is riding with Eva, too, so that's 2 moms without cars.
It's another gorgeous day here in Verona, with the sun shining, no rain in sight, and predictions of 70s today. I went to the vet for my follow up appointment this morning. My leg has no more scab on it, and my side is healing. There are even some new feathers growing in! And I've gained 5 more grams, so I'm back to 130g, like I should be. Mom was really pleased, and so was I. She is now going to make well bird appointments with this vet for Willie and Peppino, so she can get some base lines on them, but probably not until she gets back from Parrot Palooza.
Happy birthday to Jim Henson in memoriam today, we LOVE the muppets! Mom's favorite line from Miss Piggy was, What do you think has more calories, this lighter than air eclair or this 5 pound head of cabbage?
I hope you are having a fantastic day and getting lots of love and sunshine. Hugs, Falco

Happy Fall! Today when mom walked the dogs, she actually wore a hoodie and long jeans! It's the first time since about April that it has happened. She still refused to put on shoes, though, and walked in her sandals.
It is supposed to warm up later in the day and get warmer all week, but we'll believe that when we see it.
Tomorrow is my follow up appointment at the vet. Mom thinks my side looks a little better, but it's still a big gaping wound. It's gonna take awhile to heal, we fear.
Not much going on around here today. I think mom will clean out the sewing room and maybe move summer and winter clothes around. It is about time for that anyway. If there is time, she may go through the closets and find clothes to donate to St. Vincent de Paul up the street. If not, tomorrow is another day.
This is good news for us, though, we will have mom all day long! Hope you are having a great day too. Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
I hope mom is feeling better today. My leg got hurt in July, you might remember mom panicking when she found out her avian guy was only there Mon. and Tues nights, and in another location, far far away. Anyway, that part is nearly healed, there is only a tiny scab there. But mom thinks I was secretly picking at my side while the leg was healing, because I have a rather large hole in my skin! The vet didn't want to try to pull it together to stitch it, so mom is putting ointment on it daily, and I'm on antibiotics for a couple of weeks.
Now, let's talk Parrot Palooza. We understand your mom doesn't want to come and spend money there, but it's a big chance to meet a bunch of bird parronts from BC! There will be lots there, and some she hasn't met, like Aunt Jane from MI, Aunt Robin and Aunt Eva from NC, and of course, my mom. So if she doesn't want to come, maybe we'll invade your house! Maybe she could meet everyone for dinner or lunch or something???
The double wedding yesterday was sure beautiful. We all wish the 2 happy couples long life and happiness. We were sorry to have to be silent during the reception, but mom had plans for the evening.
It was her first Night at the Races, a fundraiser for the pool where she goes in the summer. She always bought a horse and jockey for the event, but never went. She never won, either, although her sister has won at least $40 every year! Last night, she and her sister and brother in law went to the dinner and stayed for the races. Guess what? Mom's horse won in its race! Mom won $40, and since she bet on it, she won another $4. (Of course, she spent more than that during the course of the evening.) It sure was fun winning something, though!
Today it's kind of cloudy and it's supposed to be cooler, although when mom walked the dogs, it was sure humid and close. I hope you are having a great day today, getting lots of Sunday love, and having a pleasant weather day as well. Hugs, Falco
