  Hi Mikey D
How are you sweetie? It's great to be back on BC, I've missed all my friends! I did support Kaji's BOTM campaign & give congrats to BOTD winners, but mom has been promising me for weeks that we would again blog ALL my friends! I have REALLY missed you all!

Mom's STEELERS won the playoff game last night but mom is still fuming over the game! These two teams are arch rivals & we expected a physical game, but one player on the opposing team took it way to far! He made a dirty, illegal hit on our star receiver and almost took his head off! Fans kept throwing debris onto the field at our players! Our QB had to be escorted off the field by the dozen security guards! Mom prays that Antonio Brown is OK & is able to play next week in the AFC Championship game!
Have a great day sweetie!
Love & a vote.
Your long lost friend

Hiya, Mikey D.

Hi.
Dad and I love to play "get the Tail". He chases me and tries to go after my tail or my belly,
and I block him with my beak. I do win most of the time. It makes us laugh. Dad is always making up silly rhymes and songs to go along with the game:

- - - - - - - -
Dad Sings
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
"The beak's in the way of the belly belly belly.
The beak's in the way of the tail.

There's a beak in the way of the belly belly belly belly.
A beak in the way of the tail."

Dad's a little better now, but he's had the flu. There was one day he spent the whole day in bed.
Now, I don't go into his back bedroom - not because it's forbidden, but I respect his space.
On the day he was so sick, I really missed him so I journeyed out to seek out where he was and if everything was ok. He was pleased to see my green head poking around the door to come visit him. We spent maybe an hour together cuddling and talking. Great Daddy-n-Bird Time.

On lesson I'm learning:
Sick Daddies are home and need lots of care.
Well Daddy's are often out-n-about and not always home.

Halloween night, Dad and Uncle Geno - along with Geno's "Guard-Dog" Lucy faced the Trick-or-treaters at Geno's place. In between kids they watched Vincent Price in
"THEATER OF BLOOD" (1973). A fun night.

On Sunday, Dad n Uncle Geno went to the 60th Anniversary Showing of the movie
Rogers and Hammerstein's "OKLAHOMA!" on the Big Screen. A beautiful print and a nice afternoon.

Hello.

We were sharing crackers on the table Monday morning.
Suddenly I had a bird hanging off my nose.
He had clamped his beak on me - surprising us both.

Flitzer hung there for a long moment - squawking and flapping his wings.
Afterwards we both laughed. ~silly bird~

Dad's Birthday Gathering:
Dad had 14 people at his Birthday Dinner gathering at Manzella's Restaurant Saturday evening.
They got the whole back room for the party and it was beautiful. Everyone had a great meal and a wonderful time.
- - -
Dad and Uncle Geno liked the movie “Shopgirl” (2005) Based on Steve Martin’s novella we found it subtle and wise - others may find it slow and dull.. Certainly not an action picture.
- - -
Dad had surgery on his left eyelid on Wednesday so he will be needing extra love and care for a while. Hope he heals quickly and that he doesn't look too scary. [It's Not Halloween yet].

Please forgive our absence if we don't blog here for a few days, as I am not good on the keyboard without Dad's help. Thanks.

Thursday night, Dad shared one of his favorite films with Uncle Geno:
"THE NAMESAKE" (2006, Dir. Mira Nair) .
Dad shares this movie with everyone - he's always surprised how many have missed it.
It's about an Indian Couple making a life and family in the USA - a beautiful, wonderful story.
Laughter, Tears, Tradition, Love.

Dad has a Birthday on Sunday.
Saturday he's picking up a cake from his favorite bakery to celebrate with Uncle JJ's Mom
(she's 94) JJ and Uncle Geno.

The Cake: Almond Cake, Cherry Fruit Filling and Cherry Icing -sounds wonderful.

Dad will be 54. Must be old, as I can't count that high.

Sunday is his real Birthday - but with everyone being so busy, his Birthday gathering won't be until Saturday Sept 12th.

Dad and Uncle Geno went to see a Documentary Friday night "BEST OF ENEMIES" about political debates, namely William F Buckley VS Gore Vidal during the 1968 Conventions. The theater was packed and the film very interesting - surprised to see such a turn-out for a Documentary.

Hello from Buffalo.
Sad to report the "Hot-n-Muggies" are back for the week.
The humidity is like a steambath, and the temps in the morning are what it should be in the heat of the day. Time for those fans and cool drinks again.

Dad and Uncle Geno went to see "THE END OF THE TOUR" with Jason Segel, which they liked.
It's not for all tastes, certainly, being a film of two humans talking. No parrots, no big action scenes... Still they enjoyed the movie.

Thank you So Much for all the HatchDay Wishes....it's great to be 7.
It was such a great day that I started doing my 'happy squawk' in the evening and wouldn't stop for a long time. Daddy laughed and laughed.

Dad gave me a happy day filled with treats and surprises. I even got Lemon Sherbet for a yummy birthday dessert.

Uncle Geno hosted another Marilyn Monroe Move Night on Thursday. They watched:
"The River of No Return" (1954) which was fun.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Dad and Uncle Geno went to the theater to see a German Film called "PHOENIX".
Dad called it his favorite film of the year so far. Sadly some of our friends have fear of subtitles - isn't that silly. Many miss out on such good films this way.

Thanks again for your gifts and wishes. ~Wings Up~

Hi from Flitzer.
--
Dad spent most of Tuesday helping Uncle Geno with his White German Shepherd, "Lucy".
Lucy had a growth on her leg and needed surgery.
--
Lucy hates the vet and (being a big dog) can be hard to handle in these situations.
--
Although the surgery went well, Lucy had a hard time coming out of the anesthesia.
We got her in Geno's truck, but she wouldn't come out - even into her home or yard.
It took a long time of patience and attention - we finally got her (reluctantly) out of the truck.

  Hey Buddy
I hope your enjoying the stories...Here's part two of Quill Work Woman...

Sugar tells the second part of her story...Quill work woman...

The leader of the Buffalo Nation calls Quill work Woman and her Four brothers out !!!
The four brothers step out of their lodge with Quill Work Woman standing behind them...

The leader of the buffalo Nation says I have been watching your sister and I love her. I want to marry her and make her part of my buffalo Nation... May I please marry her my two legged brothers ???

Hulk says no you cant marry our sister, Cookie say's she belongs to the Northern Cheyenne Nation,Tweety say's she doesn't want to marry you and Peppi says please go away now.

The Leader of the buffalo nation is mad !!! He says how dare you speak to me that way !!!
I will be back in the Spring time and ask her again...
The buffalo runs off angry...

After the winter has passed and Spring comes in Quill Work Woman and her four brothers pack their belongings and plan to head back home to the Northern Cheyenne Nation...

As they are packing they hear the loud rumbling of buffalo hooves coming towards them.
The leader of the buffalo Nation calls out to Quill Woman and her four brothers...
He say's I'm hear once again to ask for your sisters hand in marriage my two legged brothers...
Cookie says no you can't marry our sister !!!

The Buffalo nation leader say's I'll be back to stomp you down into the earth and kill all of you.

Quill Work woman goes into the lodge and cuts a hole in the back of their lodge...
Suddenly they can hear thousands of Buffalo running towards them.
They all climb out of the hole in their lodge and Peppi grabs his sacred bow and arrow as he climbs out.
Soon as they get out of their lodge the buffalo stampede through their lodge and crush it...

With no where to go they run towards a big tree and start climbing up...
The Leader of the buffalo nation starts to charge the tree trunk to knock it down !!!

Part three of the story will continue tomorrow.
Can anyone guess what happens next ???

Thank you for your votes !!!
Love Panther.

  Hi Mikey...V4 ME !!!
Today I'm taking you to the Northern Cheyenne rez in Lame Deer Montana...
This is where the people of the Big sky comes from... My tribe The northern Cheyenne...

When our creator made all things that are good and living such as our four legged brothers with fur,our brothers with wings and beaks,our brothers with scales and fins and our brothers who
crawl.He sent them from father sky to mother earth. He then made a man and a woman...They were sent to earth from the stars.
All animals are our relations.And we start our prayers with all our families and relations...We are all made from the same creator !!! So there you have it !!!
The tribe is considered to have the most beautiful people of all Native American tribes...
We are not farmers or sheep herders...We are Warriors and hunters. Living off our own land that the creator blessed us with.
My tribe is considered to be very friendly but have short tempers and will fight at the drop of a hat !!!
The boy's in my tribe are considered to be men at the age of 8 years old and they will go in the sweat lodge to be blessed with a man's name by my medicine man.After we have been blessed and given our name we can then go out to battle with the Warriors.
The girls at birth are named names like Sweet Woman,Sun Woman etc.There is always a woman at the end of their names.
Most last names have the word big in front of it like mines Bigfoot, Big left Hand etc...
We are taught at a very young age to have respect for all living things.And all things have life in them. And come from the earth. Such as aluminum etc...A properly raised child will not kick a can or throw a rock cause it has living minerals and life in it.As so does the water.

The Tribal protocol is strict and the women must always carry them self in a proper way.
Warriors carry them self with pride and honor and they protect the women and children with a great fierceness...

Northern Cheyenne men only have one wife and we do not eat dogs like the other tribes heehee !!!

Or social gatherings are called Powwow's. And we also have special days to honor our elders...
We love and respect our elders and treat them like diamonds.
An elder is never left without a family with in our tribe. If they have no family or no one to take care of them they will be taken care of by a family so they can have a happy life knowing they are loved and cherished...
There's so much more with so little time to talk about. I will update you on certain things as we go along.
Friday I will start Story telling and after that courting and marriage protocal. Something I know Kiddo And Sweet Pepper will love...
My bro Raffi and the single guys will love to learn how to do a traditional courtship !!!
Sky can learn a few things too.Instead of waiting on BB'S wedding date he can do a trick marriage heehee !!!

I need to know who are the most oldest birds on BC...
There will be something very special for them.

Love Panther

  Hey Mikey
Today is my first blog for my BOTM run...I'll be sending you more blogs this month and hope you enjoy them...

Today is my introduction of myself for those of you who don't know me...For those of you who do know me, we are so blessed to have run across each others paths...

My name is Panther Bigfoot...I am the grandson and of many generations of the Northern Cheyenne Native American Tribe.
My big brother Kevin Bigfoot is my owner.He is in the U.S Army and he fights for us and our freedom...

I was rescued on the Panthers football field after a football
game in which my big brother played football for...
One dark and cold night I came out of the dark still a baby...
I was cold and starving and needed help.
My mommy and Kevin picked me up and brought me to my new forever home...
I am now part of my loving family and part of the greatest tribe of Warriors in Native American history...

This month I will be taking you to a place in time that not too many know about and still exists...
The Northern Cheyenne Indian reservation in Lame deer Montana.

All the accounts are real and as a baby I used to listen to our elders tell us about the real truth.
All these words are spoken from generation to generation and have not changed.

Starting Thursday I will be taking you there so be ready for an adventure about my family,tribe and friends and our customs !!!
Much Love to all of you...

Love your buddy
Panther

Tuesday evening Dad and Uncle Geno went to a special event at Parkside Candies.
The evening included 'Make Your Own Sundaes' at the ice cream counter and a tour of the candy factory. Much of the original equipment from 1927 is used to make all kinds of candies.
They even gave 20% discount on candies bought that evening.
A great time! [Cue 'Willy Wonka' music].
Fortunately Dad did NOT get turned into a giant blueberry!

  Hi Mikey D!
“Hi Every Birdie! Today we are visiting somewhere I am very familiar with, and that is Orlando, Florida. We are taking a three day trip here, and in those three days we are going to visit the Disney parks and Universal. Today we are going to hit Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. Our first stop is going to be Animal Kingdom, let’s go!” They arrive, and the first thing they do is Kilimanjaro Safaris. They climb into their safari vehicle, and tour the African outback. They see lots of beautiful animals, including Elephants, Lions, Giraffes, Rhinos. Next, they head to the Tree of Life, where they head inside and see It’s Tough to be a Bug. Next, they head to Dinoland. There they do Dinosaur, where they ‘go back in time’ to bring back the Iguanodon. Everybody enjoys it, especially Cookie and Peppino. They also go on the Primeval Whirl, which spins them and drops them. When they get off, they are rather dizzy. Next they go and see some shows. They see Festival of the Lion King, the Finding Nemo Musical, and Flights of Wonder. Next they go on Expedition Everest roller coaster, where they venture through the icy peaks of the Himalayas, and see the Yeti. When they are done with that, they head over to Hollywood Studios.

“Hi Every Birdie! Today we are going to visit Honolulu, Hawaii. We are all going to have lots of fun! The first thing we are going to do is snorkel. Let’s head over to the Pier!” They arrive at the Hilton Pier in Waikiki. They get on a little boat, and are taken out in the ocean. Once the boat stops, they put on their masks and fins, and get into the water. As soon as they look down in the water, they are amazed by how clear and blue it is. They are in Turtle Canyon, so as they snorkel, they see beautiful Green Sea Turtles. They also see pretty fish and coral. They really enjoy it. After their snorkeling trip, they go to see the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor. It is the final resting place for many of the ship's 1,177 crewmen who lost their lives on December 7, 1941 in Pearl Harbor. After visiting there, they visit Manoa Falls. They have to hike to see it, so they start their journey across a bridge, and slowly hike up along the sides of the deep rainforest valley. The trail is gorgeous, and they very much enjoy their surroundings. After about a half hour hike, they reach the waterfall. It is absolutely stunning. They enjoy the beautiful view and wonderful sounds for awhile before hiking back. When they get back, Jester suggests that Peatree and Picabo should have a Hatchday lunch together, and they agree that it would be fun. They get dropped off at a cute little restaurant, and then Jester leaves with the rest of his friends. He has a special plan. They head to the beach, and set up a surprise party for their two friends. About an hour later, Jester heads back to the restaurant to pick up Pea and Picabo. They ask where everyone else is, but Jester ignores the question. They arrive at the beach, and are greeted with a loud “SURPRISE!” as they approach the set up. There are lots of colorful balloons, a big frosted cake, and “Happy Hatchday Peatree and Picabo!” is written in the sand. The two are very surprised, and thank all their friends for planning something so wonderful for them. Everyone sings ‘Happy Birthday’, and the two Hatchday birds blow the candles out. They all have cake, and then chat and dance on the beach until sunset. After, they all head to their hotel, order room service, and play games until bed. They had a very fun day! – Thanks for voting for me! Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there! :) See you tomorrow! Hugs, Jester

“Hi Every Birdie! Today we are going to Austin, Texas. Our first stop is going to be Lady Bird Lake, where we are going to go canoeing. Let’s head over there now!” Jester and his friends arrive at the lake, and head to the Rowing Dock to get their canoes. They load into canoes in pairs of two, and head out on the lake. Things go well, until Raffikki & TiPaul and Cookie & Polly decided to race in their canoes. This ends with Raffikki and TiPaul getting their canoe flipped, but they are helped back in, and then they continue down the lake (with no more racing). When they are done canoeing, they head into Zilker Park. They have a brunch picnic, and fly some kites. After their picnic, they head to Bullock Texas State History Museum. They explore the museum, and learn lots of history. They visit the La Belle Exhibit, which is pretty cool. Next they head to the Blanton Museum of Art, where they see lots of artwork. Their next stop is the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. They see tons of gorgeous flowers. They take pictures as they admire and smell the flowers. Next they visit the Texas State Capitol, where they take a tour. After their tour, they head to Ballet Austin, where they see Hamlet, a contemporary ballet, based on the classic Shakespearean story of a young man and his incredible family drama. They really enjoy it. After the ballet, they head to a steak house for dinner, and then check into a hotel. – Thanks for voting! See you tomorrow! Hugs, Jester

Happy Saturday.

Dad and a friend went to a special late-night showing of a wonderful Indian film on Thursday:
"Pacher Panchalli" (1955, Dir; Satyajit Ray) . The film is the first of a trilogy
[The Apu Trilogy] and the world is celebrating the wonderful restoration of these films.
The movie showing started at 9:45 pm, which is normally Dad's bedtime. He says it was well-worth the effort to see this special movie.

Apples today. I'm tired this morning from playing late yesterday.

Let’s go!” When they get there, they look through the museum and see lots of art collections and exhibitions. Next they go to the Kansas City Zoo. At the zoo they see Bongos, Mangabey, Gorillas, Warthogs, and many other animals. Strawberry really likes the Warthogs, and decides to call one Pumba.
