  Hi Snowflake and flock
HOWDY BC partners, Mikey D here as we ponder just how we're gonna save both Miss Falco and Jesse from the talons of some nasty outlaw member of Black Bart's gang. As we spread out to search every nook and cranny of this Old Ghost Town, Miss Falco is busy dealin' a nasty blow to her bird-napper.
"Oh, I am so angry about my friend Falco being birdnapped by that nasty ol' hawk. I can't wait to get my six-shooter pointed in his direction. We'll show him we don't take kindly to our friends being bushwhacked!" Kiddo shouts as he shoulders open the door to the blacksmith's shop beside the Livery stable. He and Angel-tiel bolt inside, guns at the ready. A group of birdies follow them inside as they check every inch of the ole' buildin' " nuthin' here, let's keep goin'"
Jesse can hear his bird-napper outside as they talk softly about what was takin' place back in town. He hears Falco's name mentioned and his anger grows. He tries to call out, but the cloth tied around his beak prevents him making a sound. He sits thinking for a moment then worried for Falco,
"I MUST get free and save Falco. That nasty, foul-smellin' Hawk's gonna find out who I am" with that Jesse begins to swarm and wiggle, working to loosen his bindings. He pulls and tugs and finally feels the ropes begin to give a little slack.
" Did that hurt?" Falco asks coyly, trying hard to find a grin, " a little ol' girl couldn't hurt someone as strong as you?" she giggles out loud, then seeing Hawk-eyes look, she stops with difficulty .
"You just be settin' there and behavin' Black Bart will be along right shortly to deal with ya and your band of goodie-two-shoes"
BB sneaks out the back door of the jail to do some lookin' around for Jesse on her own. "Maybe he is not even being held in this ghost town any more! There is a old mine shaft in the hills close by" so BB mounts Sundancer & heads out to do more scouting. Riding north, she works her way up towards the mine from the back end. Tying Sundancer to a bush she grabs her riffle from the scabbard and checks her six-shooter, then carefully makes her way to a large boulder just above the mine's entrance. There, she hankers down to listen carefully as she watches two of Black Bart's gang pacin' nervously back 'n' forth.
"We better leave Jesse here and go see to gettin' Bart outta jail." a small, wiry bird tells his partner, a gangly sea gull in ragged clothes. She sees his dirty hat nod, then both head towards the north east where their horses had been hitched. BB grins, "the horses are long gone towards the south west.' She chuckles softly to herself as she inches closer to the mine's entrance.
"If I were you I'd be lettin' me go mighty fast, my friends are headin' this way right now and it ain't gonna go well for you!" Falco tells her bird-napper. He peers out the dusty window, what he sees makes him cringe.

  Hi Snowflake and flock
Howdy partners, no time to be talkin' not with Black Bart heading with his gang to the ole' jail. Pearl and Silver smile " What a greyt feeling to be taking Black Bart and his cronies to lockdown (where they deserve to be) but we cowbirdies still don't have Jesse back." BB is riding out of the mountains towards the ghost town when she sees Falco being jerked into the general store. by a scruffy-lookin' Hawk. She slaps Sundancer on the shoulder and encourage her into a gallop as she winds her way towards the Ghost Town. "What foul deeds are going on now" she thinks. BB rides around town to scout things out & sees a strange horse out back of the general store. On the other side of town BB sees Boss D & the wagon crews putten Black Bart's gang in the jail house. BB enters the jails back door and tells every birdie what see saw at the general store. "It seems we have 2 birds being held hostage now"
Everybirdie turns around alarmed at the sudden sound of BB's voice. The news that Miss Falco has been bird-napped shocks everybird silent. "Oh no, not Falco! We have to rescue her from that awful hawk. I don't like hawks at all, ' Kiddo exclaims
Mikey D looks from Kiddo to Sky, then to the others searching for an answer. " We must move fast. Jesse and Falco are somewhere in town. "BART!," he growls angrily, " where ya got Jesse stashed? and NO! funny talk or you and your cronies are gotten be sorry!"
Black Bart begins to laugh, " now ain't ya all in a real bind? If' 'n ya don't set us free, you ain't findin' either Jesse or this Miss Falco either!" his eerie laughter echos in the old jail house.
"We have your gang hog-tied outside in the wagons. You make us a trade, we'll let ya have your lice-bitten hooligans back!" Sky says, an anger fillin' his eyes like a wildfire. Cappy marches Bart and his hooligans into the jail cell and locks them up, sittin' down to keep watch so there is NO jail breaks! " Ya' ll set outta here to search, find Jesse and Falco. I'll make sure our guests are all comfy-cozy."
The team bolts from the jail, spreadin' out to search for their friends, now held captive. Raffikki turns to Cookie and Pookie, " I bet Falco can hold her own!" they laugh a small worried laugh, then fly down the street to search in the livery stable.
Falco sits quietly, eying her captor. " Ya know they're gonna find me, and you'll end up gettin' your tail-feathers trimmed?" she grins straighten up under his angry glare.
" Now, no sassin' from ya missie" he yells walkin' over to within inches of her beak.
"Bad move buster" she yells, as she stomps down on his toes with her cow-girl boots, bitin' him on the wing at the same time.
"OWWWW" Hawk-eye screams, hoppin' on one foot, holdin' his wing with the other."Now, you're gonna get it, no more carryin' on!"

  Hi Snowflake and flock
Hello everybirdie, Mikey D , driving like the wind towards that ole' Ghost Town and a confrontation with Black Bart the notorious robbing, murderin', cantankerous villain of the Old West. With his gang members stowed away in our wagon beds, we drive into the deserted town ready to come beak to beak with our cunning enemy.
Pearl & Silver are wondering eggactly how the tunnel birds are gonna get outta their predicament when they see Cappy wink. Looking around for some way to get out of the predicament they found themselves, the Tunnel Birds realize their time might be up, when Cappy, their leader comes up with a thought to save them all and capture Black Bart. "Well has Black Bart ever encountered a mad Cockatoo Scream?" Cappy thinks and then lets out the loudest highest pitch scream he can manage. He rushes Black Bart with Drawing Blood on his mind. Everybirdy around that Cockatoo screaming drops everything to cover their ears and wince in pain, giving the Tunnel Birds time to react as they were all wearing earplugs.
The Tunnel Birds rush Bart and his birds, grabbing their dropped firearms. Cappy glares at Black Bart, his gun pointed at the leader of the robbin' gangsters." Move i, there's an old cell over in the Sheriff's Office that has your name on it. You can stay there until Mikey D and the others decide what to do with you." Cappy points to the door with his gun barrel. Bart turns signaling his birds to follow him to the jail house. Moving as one for the door, Falco stands aside to let the group pass, then joining the others she follows along towards the jailhouse.
No one has seen Jesse yet, but once Bart and his gang were under lock they'd search for him and set him free. Falco stops as she sees Mikey D and the wagons rushing along the dusty, bumpy road, then out of no where a wing covers her eyes and beak, stopping her from screaming for help. The dark shadow drags her into the old General Store before letting her go. With gun pointing towards her, she turns to see her captor. A scruffy Hawk squints beady blacken eyes at her. His torn jacket covering dusty clothes, and the smell of him makes Falco's nose sting.
"WELL now Missie, whata we here?" the birdknapper says, " bet Mikey D and the others gonna give us what we want to save ya!"
Falco glares angrily, and straightens her clothes out, " How dare you grab me, you rotten dirt-bag"
"Now, now that ain't no way to be behavin' missie" the birdnapper taunts. " you just set right yonder, and keep quiet like, hear me?"
Mikey D pulls to a stop at the saloon, as the others stop and rush for the doors of the stores and hotel to search for hide-a ways. No one realized with all the action that Falco was missing.
"Where's Jesse?"

  Hi Snowflake
Howdy friends, Mikey d here, at Widow's Creek. It seems we've found us a peck of troubles with Black Bart and his gang of hooligans. All the cowbirds are on claw-tips waiting for the signal. When it happens they are all poised for action. Kiddo's fierceness and bravery gives them all a needed boost of courage as Badact ducks a bullet inches above his head. It was all the incentive the BC team needed, as they draw down on Black Bart's gang right there in the openin' at Widow's Creek.
With the echoing boom of Sky's double barrel shot gun, all chaos breaks loss under the saloon in that ole' Ghost Town. Cappy signals his Tunnel Birds who grab the remaining floor boards in their beaks and talons and with one mighty pull splinter them into kindling. Cookie, thinkin' like Kiddo
quotes a Dirty Harry line; " OK punk,Go ahead-Make my day!" The birds bust through the opening guns on the ready to come beak to beak with Black Bart himself, and a group of his dirty-birdie bandits.
"FREEZE!" Cappy yells as he points his gun at Bart, the others cover the remaining gang-members.
At Widow's Creek things are pretty busy. The bullets begin to fly from all directions as good birds, and gang-birds dive for cover. "The action is heatin' up!!!!!" BB is sitten tall on Sundancer's back over seein' the action at Widows Creek & the ghost town saloon. She is ready to ride to either spot to cover there if need be."This is better then cable TV." she yells as the action continues. Sky stands up and takes a fast shot at Badact and two of his cronies.
"Drop 'em, and wings up, or next shot won't miss," Sky fires so close it ruffles Badacts feathers.
"Ok, Ok, enough, it ain't worth it if Black Bart is gonna rob us of our share boyz" Badact drops his gun and throws his wings over his head.
Polly runs in and grabs his gun, as SweetPepper scoops up the other two guns from his friends standin' wings above their ratty heads. Kiddo takes careful aim at one of the other robbers, nicking his wing feathers, makin' him drop his weapon as he grabs his sore wing and begins to hoot and holler jumpin around like a rabbit. The other villains yell out " HOLD YA FIRE!" they come out from hiding places, wings up.
Mikey D calls out to his friends," grab some rope, lets tie these varmints up, we're headin' to town to make a delivery to Bart! " The team quickly secure the ropes and have the bandits hog-tied and loaded on the wagon beds, under the watchful eye of the gun-birds. They move to their teams like lightening and at a fast trot make dust as they move to the aid of their friends in the Ghost Town. BB clicks to Sundancer and moves off at a gallop, making a direct run for the action in town.
The Tunnel Birds have gotten themselves into a fix. They'd forgotten about the back door to the saloon. As they burst in and thought they had Bart covered they too were under cover; the cover of six gun barrels. " I think we got us a BIG PROBLEM!" Pearl whispers to Cappy.
see ya tomorrow,

  Hi Snowflake and flock
SHHHHHHHH!, Mikey D here at Widow's Creek. The place looks abandoned, not a bird in sight. Suddenly, outta the brush Black Bart's mite-infected side-kicks appear, guns poised at the ready. Mikey D takes a deep breath, and steps down from the lazy-board, and nods to the other drivers to follow suit. Cautiously, every nerve on the ready, the BC team moves to join the trail Boss.
"Far enough, now back off from them there wagons" a surly lookin' Raven orders, his six-shooter aimed at Mikey D. " fella's you take a gander and make sure them wagons have the treasure Bart wants."
Cappy and the tunnel birds have broken through the dirt and have slowly pried on the saloon floor until the boards are loose. Cappy is on high alert waiting for the signal. The tunnel birds are all ready to make their move and just wait in silence until Cappy hears the signal to burst through the floor and save Jesse.
"Wow, we tunnel birds did quick work." Pearl whispers to Silver waiting in the darkness," All the cowbirdies are eggcited and scared but more than prepared to do their assigned duties to carry out the rescue of Jesse as soon as the Trail Boss gives the order. They listen for the sound of Sky's double-barrel shot gun. Cookie shakes dust and dirt from his feathers after digging and stands waiting in silence. Dixie and Kallie along with Peepers and Celine all worked hard to move that dirt out from the tunnel they were building to connect to the saloon.They can't wait to save Jesse from Black Bart's clutches.
Mikey D, looks at the gang of thieves, then at the wagons. " Ok, you got everything ya wanted, now let my friends walk outta here peaceful-like"
"NO, Bart ordered us to take ya all hostage and bring you all back to town. You, come with me" he points at Pookie, one of the drivers, we're gonna go check out the loot. If there's any funny-business he's gonna get it. Hear me?" he growls angrily. Mikey D shakes his head, and waits not sayin' a word. He over-hears one of the bandits call the surly Raven, "Badact".
"WAIT! Badact ya sure you really wanta hand over all this treasure to Black Bart? You all kno' he ain't gonna share it with ya!" this gets the bandit-birds grumblin' among themselves. The plan is working. If they can convince these scoundrels that Black Bart is goin' to take everything they just might get them to turn against their leader.
Badact grabs Pookie by the shirt-collar and marches him to the sixth wagon, stoppin' to think for a moment, he then reaches his wing out to pull open the back of the canopy. He stops dead in his tracks as Kiddo jumps up, his gun leveled at Badact's head. The action gives everyone of the BC team time to dive for cover. Kiddo shoots over Badacts head, startling him, " feelin' lucky?" Kiddo yells angrily. Sky jumps out of his wagon bed, shooting his gun into the air, the double barrel echoing clear to the Ghost Town, signaling the Tunnel Birds into action. All chaos breaks loss

  Hi Snowflake and flock
Howdy, Mikey D here, at the camp readying to head into Widow's Creek. Cappy the tunnel-bird champ and his crew are already heading towards the Ghost Town, digging their tunnel quickly under Black Bart's beak, and moving in to place to rescue Jesse from their felonious grasps.
Ms BB rides back quietly into camp, unseen by the busy birds, it isn't until she speaks they realize she is there, " the tunnel birds are gettin' near the saloon! I seen a big pile of dirt outside of camp. Black Bart still has not shown himself. Some of his gang are still at Widows Creek waiting for the surprise you have planned for them. The group have got the horses away unnoticed and should have them here in the remuda any minute."
"It's time everyone!" Mikey D says loudly enough to be heard by all, "OK drivers, carporals act real casual-like, and don't let them know anythings up! Gun-birds, stay safe, wait for the signal, " Where's that feather-plucked rat?" before you come out shootin' and may God be with us!"
"The horses are stashed safely among the herd of cattle and mules, " Peppino reports to the others.
"Everybirdie knows the part they must play to successfully rescue Jesse and keep us and our cargo safe. Black Bart will regret messing with us again." Silver exclaims, as he and Pepper check their weapons.Pookie says "I'm all ready lets start heading out. I've got my rifle along with a night vision scope attached. I never leave home without it." he climbs up into the wagon. Peepers,Celine and the rest of the Dixie flock are all eager to help dig and be tunnel birds!They all grab a shovel to show Mikey D just how strong and fast they can be! Cappy directs the work, as dirt flies quickly out of the tunnel. Kaji takes a quick look of the work and reports back to the others that the tunnel is nearly finished.
"Let's move'em out!" Mikey D calls as he snaps the reins of his team and pulls them out onto the rough, rutted road. Kiddo spins around and draws his gun to show he is ready for Black Bart before jumping up onto the back of one of the empty wagons, joining the others hidden away in the beds of the Schooners. They move along at a slow walk, no birdie eager for what is to come. In the distance Mikey D spies Widow's Creek and can just make out a small figure of a bird watchin' them.
The Tunnel completed, Cappy waits for a few minutes to regroup his team before them head inside to make their way towards the saloon. They check their guns, and follow into the darkness. They wait to hear the signal shot from Sky at the Widow Creek. Then they will bust through the final inches of dirt and bust into the back of the saloon to save Jesse. Falco and Chyna take a deep breath as they wait. Very bird's nerves are on edge, ready to swing into action......
Mikey D holds up his wing, as they pull carefully into the opening at Widow's Creek..
see ya tomorrow, MIKEY D

  Hi Snowflake and flock
WELL HOWDYYYY!, Mikey D finally back online. WOW, no net was sure tough. Didn't know how we'd make it much longer. Thankfully we can just pick on up were we left off. We gathered together to plan our rescue of Jesse and a greetin' for Black Bart he'd not soon forget. Lizzie had rustled up a great meal, but nobirdie seem too hungry with so much about to take place. With the wagons unloaded, and Apache, Bon Bon. Angel and Willie standin' guard we set about makin' plans on how to carry out our mission.
" I have scouted out Widow's Creek." Ms BB explained, " There is 1 road through the creek with lots of cover to hide in. That's bad for us cause Black Bart has his gang hid in it. I seen the movements they made back and forth to their horses. " BB paused for emphases "The cover is good for us cause we can sneak up & get the drop on them. Maybe a few birds can sneak in & lead their horses away.?"
"Now, that sounds like a workable idea, " Zippy says eager to get goin' and save Jesse. "I volunteer to go!"
"I will too" Parker adds. " Me too!" Flitzer offers.
"OK, you be careful. Take their horses back around the creek, and into our remuda for safe keepin. But be careful." Mikey D says, patting them each on the shoulder. He knows he's picked the best birds to do that job. Angel-tiel, Pepper and Peppino join the group as they ride out of camp to carry out their mission. Angel & Pepper are happy to help the birdies execute the "surprise" for Black Bart!
"We need to get these wagons hitched and ready." Sky adds looking at Mikey D for direction. "I'll be honored to be in the wagon as I'm a good shot." Pookie steps forward eager to do his share to help. Cookie and Spot get their guns ready, they know the team will out smart that rotten Black Bart and his gang.
"We're ready to do whatever part we need to help rescue Jesse and keep everybirdie, cargo, etc. safe." Pearl and Silver check their weapons and smiling, join the volunteers climbing into the now empty wagons.
Cappy steps up to help Mikey D and Sky lead the attack. "I'm very proficient with a sling shot lol. " he begins to pick out shooters to be in his wagon. Kiddo re-loads and speaks up "I have my six shooter loaded and ready to go!" he hops into the wagon bed ready to fight. Cappy asks "has anybirdie thought of digging a tunnel into the town? ... Cappy explains he is very adept at digging escape tunnels .
"NOW, that's a plan" Mikey D says grinning widely, We need tunnel birds quick! Any volunteers? Wings go up all over camp. "Cappy, you take all the tunnel-birds you need and head into town. Tunnel your way carefully towards the saloon. "Jesse!, we'll be there soon!"
see ya tomorrow, MIKEY D

  Hi Snowflake and flock
Howdy partners, Mikey D here with our Thursday update. Things had taken a turn for the worse, when SKY and GUS came up with a plan that might just work to help us free Jesse and keep our cargo safe. Black Bart, that low0down dirty bird bird-napped Jesse as he rode a lame mule back to the remuda. That rotten scoundrel has his black, beady eyes fixed on stealin' our cargo, taken our wagons and riding off with our mules and herd. Well, let me be tellin' ya, there ain't no way we's gonna be givin' that low-flyin' thief and his gang of lice-bitten villains anything, and we're gonna be show him in no uncertain terms.
" Here comes a lone rider Boss!" Cappy yells out from his look-out position in a nearby tree. "It's Miss BB". Miss BB gallops into the camp & dismounts. "Boss, I did not see any way we can get into that Saloon in the ghost town without being seen. There are guards on top of the buildings. Mr Sky's plan sounds like the best chance of success. Sky and Gus are right about Black Bart. He & his gang are not that bright. Just downright mean & ornery. I volunteer to be in one of the empty wagons. " she exclaims a growl in her voice.
The group of birds burst out in a loud cheer of triumph. " We'll take on that stealin' bird-nappin' feather-duster of a hooligan." One and two by twos the birds offer their wings in this battle to save Jesse and protect their precious freight of Birdie-treats.
"You know I'm with you!" Sugar yells high-fouring Mikey D."You could put Lizzie in that wagon. I guarantee you that is all you need to do." Kaji says, as Lizzie demonstrates her fire power for everybirdie.
"You're right, she'd toast him, but good. We gotta make sure we get Jesse back first, then she can practice her flame-thrownin' skills" Sky says laughing. The others join in and soon everyone is laughing at the image of Black Bart meeting Miss Lizzie.
"Now, that's fire-power" Flitzer adds." there sure ain't no shortage of volunteers to take on Black Bart. I certainly want to be a member of this mission to rescue Jesse!' Kiddo tells Dory and Polly.
"ok, we're all in agreement. Let's get these wagon's unloaded quick. I need some riders to head out to the remuda and have them bring the herd close in. Miss BB, you, Sky, and a few volunteers ride out to get the Beakerton Agents out on the trail still. We have a big party to plan for and right quickly too!" Mikey D assigns the work and heads to his wagon with Chuey to begin the job of unloading the freight. " We'll need to have gun-birds stay here to guard the hidden cargo." he takes a deep breath. Time is running by fast and they had much to do if their plan was going to work.
It isn't long before everybirdie is gathered together, working to prepare for the surprise that was awaitin' Black Bart and his gang come sundown at Widow's Creek.
see ya tomorrow, MIKEY D

  Hi Snowflake
Mikey D here after a day's absence. I must say Mr Sky ( Sky Flock) looks rather handsome with his beak and nails all trim and polished. Then to make it worse he got a huge wooden toy from Chuey's Chewable Bird Toy Creations. Geesh, I had to sit here and tend mules all day in the hot sun whilst I fretted some over how we'd get Jesse back from Black Bart. As I was sittin' astride the lazy-board on the wagon, driving these tired, sweaty mules Ms BB came ridin into our midst.

"I had a short meeting with The Bird yesterday up in the hills. He/she has had a hard time getting away from Black Bart. The Bird said "Black Bart & his gang have Jesse in their camp in the ghost town. They are in the saloon." I hope this intel helps. I am going to scout the ghost town for ways to get in without being seen" with this message she wheeled her steed and galloped off into the distance before I had a chance to ask any questions. The whole message has me troubled now. We have until sundown to figure out a way to rescue Jesse, before we have to deal with Black Bart. There ain't no way, no how we're gonna hand over our wagon train to the likes of that feathered rascal.
Lizzie is thoroughly disgusted." I shoulda toasted Black Bart last time," she thinks. "Now he has Jesse. I know I should just pay attention to my cooking but I sure do have a mind to torch that dastardly demon. " she exhales a puff of smoke and fire in her anger. Kaji looks at her, and grins. Black Bart just might have bitten off more then he can handle this time.
Mikey D calls a break, pulling off into a nice cool grove of cottonwood trees that grow by a shallow river bank. The perfect place for a quick, make-shift camp and rest. Everyone needs a break and somethin' good in their bellies, then they will figure out how to rescue Jesse from that bad varmint Bart. BB was off scouting the Ghost Town, and no doubt would be back soon with the intel they needed to make a quick, safe mission of it. Even the smell of roasting beef and bread wasn't enough to stop that knot of worry in Mikey D's stomach.

Sky and Gus arrive at the camp, and tend their team. Washing up in the river they hurry to find Mikey D. " We've been thinkin' boss, we might have a plan that just might work. You see, Black Bart isn't that bright, just mean and ornery so we were thinkin' that if we were to unload the wagons and deliver them to him at the Widow's Creek. Instead of freight we have gun-birds stowed away inside the wagon beds and when he comes to check them out, we gett'um good. He won't even suspect a thing. We act all afraid and all when we pull into the rendezvous place. We can teach that rat bird a lesson he'll never forget.
Mikey D listens carefully and smiles. It might just work, if everybirdie can play along with the plan. But "Is there enough birds willing to take on Black Bart?" he asks out loud hopeful that they can win this battle.
see ya tomorrow, Mikey D

How are you, Babe? My Mommy is feeling so much better right now. She thinks between the 2nd shot, Physical Therapy, Med's, Hot Showers & Bio Freeze that that's what is really helping her. Mom is so happy right now & so are we LOL! Hope your Mommy & Family have a Happy Easter. That Indian Grand Baby is gorgeous & we love her name "Too". Of course, I just love our beautiful Chick also! Okay, lets do some Easter shopping. Here's your vote, my stunning Wife.

Love Always,
P.S. We hope your Mommy is feeling better???
P.S.S. I just love our new "Family Picture".

  Hi Snowflake,

How's my Babe? So who is that beautiful Baby in your pictures? Also, I read somewhere that your Mom & Dad were going to Vegas for the weekend? Did they have a good time? Hope they won or at least broke even. Wish our weather here was nicer. It's been chilly & raining today. We thought we were getting it tomorrow. But it's suppose to reach a high of 70 tomorrow! Great day to take our Baby Girl, Busy out for a walk tomorrow. Oh Mom had her procedure yesterday. So far yesterday & today she's feeling pretty good. BUT that's usually the way she always feels afterwards (except the last time). So she's hoping to feel the same tomorrow on. Keep her in your prayers as my Mom is keeping your Mom is hers. Here's your vote, gorgeous.

Love Always,

  Hi Panther
Love your new picture!! Moms cousin was sick with the flu bug for about 5 days and the grand had it about 2 days.
HAPPY ST. PATRICKS DAY!!! Today mom went to a couple of grocery stores and she was gone a good while. Well longer then she usually is. Finally she came in the door and had brown paper bags and I could smell the fresh fruits and vegetables! Yep I knew right away she was at the fruit stand and it is open for the season now. Woooo hooo now we get some good fruits and veggies again. Not a whole bunch just yet but as summer comes on there is more and its always so fresh and good too. “People often ask, how can you be friends with someone you never met and mom tells them, you have never been on BC I bet and that about sums it up my friend” BC is family!!

  Hi Snowflake,

It's such a beautiful sunny day to take the Baby's for a nice stroll. It actually feels like Spring here in Philly with the temps at 62! I'm glad Cookie & his Chick is here "Too". It's so nice that all the Baby's & Cousins get along. Life is so good for us, Babe.

Mom's trying real hard to think positive with having her med's, the next shot in 2 weeks and she's probably going to start Physical Therapy next week to help ease her pain. The last option she has is surgery & she's trying real hard NOT to have it.

Anyway, lets enjoy the sunny day with our Babies! Here's a vote for you, Snowflake the Love of my Life.

Love Always,
Your Apache

Oh look at our Baby Busy in her beautiful Pink Dress. OMG she looks so darn cute! She's melting my heart already, Babe. That Jet is adorable "Too". BonBon did a great job on the sweater she made for her. My life is so good with you and our Baby Chick. Here's a vote for you, gorgeous.

Love Ya,
P.S. Mom thanks everyone for the prayers. She went for the MRI today and made it through the whole 25 minutes. It's shorter than a regular MRI. So Mom won't know anything until she sees her Pain Mgt. Dr. next Tues. We'll keep you updated.

March has come in like a lion in our neck of the woods and its snowing snowing, snowing. i would like to start out my campaign by talking about HUMAN POOP. More than 2.5 billion people in the developing world lack access to toilets, and a child dies every 15 seconds from diarrhea, usually the result of food or water becoming contaminated by human waste. Each year, 200 million tons of the world’s poop also goes completely untreated, ending up directly in lakes, rivers, and oceans.

in Kenya, , $324 million is lost every year due to sickness and missed work hours caused by poor sanitation. Nonprofits and businesses have experimented with what to do with human waste. Haiti is famous for distributing “composting toilets” that drastically lower the risk of contracting diseases. by collecting the poop from toilets, treating it, and selling it as fertilizer.

in Kenya Instead of composting the waste to grow food, it’s turning it into energy to cook it by distributing toilets to local families, emptying them each month, and turning the poop into briquettes. After the waste is collected from toilets around town, it’s put it in a solar concentrator that uses mirrors to heat the waste to temperatures that have been shown by the Centers for Disease Control to kill pathogens, making it safe for reuse.

Across Africa and around the world, hundreds of millions of people cook with wood and charcoal. Most charcoal comes from trees that are slowly cooked down in huge earthen ovens, removing the moisture without oxidizing the wood so that it becomes a more efficient source of heat per volume. But the process consumes a lot of trees—four tons of trees produce just one ton of charcoal, according to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization—and with populations on the continent rising exponentially, deforestation is only increasting. Already, forest cover in Kenya has fallen to just 2 percent, and the price of charcoal is rising.

Moreover, smoke from burning charcoal indoors can be hazardous 6 percent of global diseases and 7 percent of disease-related deaths are caused by respiratory infections. poop briquettes contain one-third less charcoal than normal ones. For now the briquettes being given away for testing purposes.“When you look at the chemical composition of poop, it’s 90 percent organic matter and 40 percent carbon. So not only is there a high demand for fuel, but poop from a chemical composition standpoint already has a great composition to be turned into fuel,” he major obstacle is the “ick” factor. reservations tend to disappear as soon as they try out the odorless briquettes for themselves. the proof is in the smell—or rather, lack thereof. They see it’s not smelling, it’s cooking good.”

  Hi Panther
back in the fall mom found a small sparrow that had somehow gotten its leg tanged in a bird house filled with our doggies hair mom clips every spring for the birds making nests. there was another sparrow tangled in it also and mom thinks it was trying to help the other one that was dangling by its leg. mom had a heck of a time getting the sparrows leg out and felt the sparrow probably broke it by struggling so much. once she untangled the one sparrows leg the other sparrow became free also and they both quickly flew away before mom could check for any broken legs. today dad had the doggie outside to do her business and called for mom to come out because there was a little bird sitting on the driveway. somehow mom recognized this sparrow as the one dangling by its leg months ago from the bird house. it sat there for a few minutes and looked at mom and then it hobbled away and then flew to a nearby tree. mom knows its leg has never healed but at least it looked in good shape considering its bad leg.

I, Boo Boo, the rare blue bali mynah will be running for BOTM starting tomorrow and would greatly appreciate your votes. i don't have anything planned but will try and entertain you with some interesting facts.

  Hey You
What's happening in your stretch of the world these days? Mine is all white today after the snow that fell in the night. I keep thinking maybe this winter stuff is going to be over with but I'm probably jumpin' the gun a little since spring is still about a month away yet, and that's if it shows up on time, which sometimes it doesn't. Me tho, I'm doin' okay, keepin' busy with the same ol' same ol', which is just fine with this guy. I was informed this morning that I need a bath. Don't know if that means I stink or what but I'm ready for the drenching. No matter how wet I get from the squirt bottle, I always have t'go and splash all the water out of my water dish as a conclusion to the bathing routine. The floor is usually covered in water by the time I'm done, but it's worth it 'cause I'm one shiny bird afterwards. If you're anything like the 'Tiels in my flock, you love your showers too. The group here all hang upside down, like bats, while mom sprays clouds of mist over them. I think she wishes the rest of us would get into the bathing with the same enthusiasm.

So how's married life treatin' you? You look mighty happy so I'm gonna say you're lovin' the couples' life. Good for you, findin' that special someone to go through life with. I'm wishin' you and Apache sweet days ahead.

Thanks for comin' by and violatin' my page. You're a hoot, Snowflake!

  Hi Snowflake,

How is my beautiful Wife? Sorry I've been so quiet but Mom had her procedure yesterday and today is feeling just a bit better. She's been in so much pain but then again your Mom knows what pain is. You can read Jedi's message from Cheyenne and see more information okay? Remember I'm always here for you, Baby even if I am quiet. I'm never letting my beautiful Wife go. Whatever you want to do today is fine with me. Of course just hanging in our gorgeous home with you is okay "Too". Here's a vote for you. I'll always love you, Snowflake.

Love Always & Forever,
Your Loving Husband, Apache

  Hi Snowflake!
Cthanks for the compliments on me and Hulk! That is too bad you couldn't blog on the milonga! We didn't have any problems once we got on BC. Our internet is always pretty iffy but for once it was working fast.
Today we were inside all day since our parronts went to the city. Dad went golfing and then they went to see American Sniper which they really liked. Of course as Navy vets, they would enjoy it! It was 90F in the city so things are warming up around here for our springtime! The hibiscus is starting to bloom already and mom can see some new leaves coming on the cedar tree (not sure if it is a cedar tree or not but it does lose most of its leaves here in the winter even though this is the tropics).
Hope you and the gang had a nice 'Toos Day!

We had a hot day here today and I helped mom in the garden for the great backyard bird count. We even had a woodpecker so that was eggs citing!

  Hi Snowflake
I'm just tired of the snow and negative temps. You are the only snow I care about! Glad you got the blog time, good to hear from you. Oh yes, It's fine if Jedi wants to use my pic. I really don't think it's very good. Mom ran out of ideas and out up a tea towel behind me ... silly mom!
Not much to do on a cold winter's day. So, I decided to go for a walk. I went into my parront's bedroom and found mom's fuzzy slippers. Just as I started to chew them, dad caught me! I was banished to my condo for a time out!
Did I tell you that we have a deer that sleeps near the house every night? She is all curled up and sound asleep. Dad thinks it's the one that has an injured foot. She can stay as long as she wants. We have food out there for her.
Stay warm and have a g'nite.

  Hi Snowflake
I'm home! I sure missed everybirdie. Thanks for all the blogs and thinking of me. I will send this long c/p to let all of you know my adventures.
It started very early on Jan 16. We had our first stop in MI a five hour drive to visit Aunt Gail. Then we left very early on the 17th. It was dark when we started the drive. I got to see lots of horses in Kentucky and mountains in Tennesee. Then it was dark again and I saw a big city called Atlanta, all lit up. We spent the night in Georgia. The next day, we finally arrived in Florida.
I saw lots of palm trees and different birds. The house we rented was really nice. It had a lanai with a pool. I spent a lot of time in the sun. My feathers look good! A flock of birds landed next to the screened in pool. One came over to talk with me. He was a snowy egret, I called him "E". Every day he would visit and we would talk. My parronts were going to the beach, site-seeing and mom had shopping to do. My dad even had gator for dinner one night ... YUCKY!!! He did come across one on the golf course too!
I had an adventure too. We went over a big bridge called the Skybridge. The pelicans would fly next to the car window. I yelled hello but they would just glance at me. We ended up at Felix's house. His mom is so very nice and we had a wonderful time. Felix even had a dish of his favorite nuts for me to enjoy. Felix is very smart and Kirby talks all the time. Butters is a sweet lady and Snickers is a wild and crazy guy. Loved them all! They liked me too. As I was leaving, Felix called out goodbye several times.
We had sunny days with temps from 72 to 80. On Saturday the 31st, we started home. First there was a bad accident and so we sat in FL for 1 1/2 hours. We only made it up to Tennesee and spent the night there in the mountains. The drive was good, saw more horses in KY and then when we hit Ohio, rain started. Then it turned to snow and the roads got bad. We were stranded south of Toledo and spent another night. The next day, we left on a very slow and scary drive and finally made it to Aunt Gail's. That was last night. Today we arrived home around dinner time. It was good to see my own bed again but NOT the snow!
My profile pic is me at the pool. Mom will get the pics posted this week.
Have a greyt night.

  Hi Snowflake,

How's my Snowflake? Whenever you want to get out of that bed, I'll make you breakfast today. The one you made me yesterday was delicious. Okay, I agree we'll call my Horse, Warrior. What a beautiful ride we had yesterday in the snow with our Horses. I'm so happy you talked me in to making a nice Barn for them. We even put fans and heat in there. How spoiled are they LOL? After breakfast how about we take a nice swim in our beautiful Pool. Actually, I think Cheyenne and Jedi are in there now. Here's your vote, Babe.

Love Always & Forever,
Your Apache
P.S. Mom says to Thank your Mom for her prayers, she can always use them. But she also said she is still praying for your Mom. Luckily, my Mom can take med's but some don't do anything for her. So hopefully when she goes to the Drs. today, they'll give her something that will really help. She seems to be in more pain with each day and is getting very disgusted.
