Mr Ziggy wasa carefully guarded secret at our QCPS bird rescues shelter, for 2 years! His previous mom had become unable to care for him properly, and was forced to give him up, but it was her wish that he didn't go yoyo just anybody, but a bird loving person! I had spoken several times for several months about Zig, and on February 16th at our bird club meeting, the Big Zig became a Dallas bird! I want to point out that he was not abused from cruelty, rather neglected somewhat by his loving previous owner, waiting to do the right thing for him, consequently some negligent abuse, but he has recovered, and is a very happy and well adjusted parrot! He prefers women to men, and he really loves his aunt Denise! I think he felt like a big shot hanging out with RaneBeau and Coach Reba today! He is truly one of those simple pleasures in life, and as he sits beside me every day, he brightens my world like you can't believe! He has been in my home for nearly 2 months, and I love him dearly, what is not to love...

Mr Ziggy, daddy Chuck, & the Dallas flock

Hi! My name is Mr Ziggy~We all want Jenny to be the rider again.

I am a Yellow-Collared Macaw from Rock Island, IL.

Zigmeister, Zig Zag, Z-man, and Zigster, so far! Now his BB knick name is Big Zig Hammer...he is the sweetest bird, I can not imagine why nobody wanted him...

13 years old   M

Yellow-Collared Macaw

Some fruit & veggies and a few unsalted peanuts in the shell, and his special Higgins parrot mix...

...on top of his cage, and back by his toy, he loves his toys and bells! This little guy has a big appetite, he wants to be like his new big buddy RaneBeau...

Any and all sudden movements, and not being covered at night night time

He is so patient and never yells at me for any reason! I get fresh food and water every single day, and sometimes a tidbit of human food, love that stuff...

Zigs will not step on your hand, but prefers a sleeved arm, and what a sweetheart, he is....

...pray a lot, and remember there is somebody for everybody, my Lord is a good and just Lord....

  Hi BC friends-from Mr Ziggy
Yesterday our morning started out really bad and got worse as the day wore on! I am not going to go into all the boring details, but our furnace stopped cycling, and we need a new very expensive service box, and the kitchen TV stopped working! The TV repair man is coming out this afternoon, and the furnace repair person made it work temporarily, we'll know more about that today! We hope your week started better than ours, have a great ToosDay, and give our sincere love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow! We will be writing fewer notes today and tomorrow, but we thought you should know why...

Forever love, from Jenny, Christy, LaLo, Ziggy. and our quickly going broke daddy...
We absolutely need heat for us tropical parrots

Hello, Zig - and all your happy family

We've been fortunate to have very warm weather for Buffalo, but the temps are plummeting and we will have snow and single-digit temperatures by the weekend.
~sigh~
It is Buffalo after all.

Uncle Geno got a goldfish. Now, what good is a fish - it can't fly. It can't sit on your shoulder and nip your ear. It can't even say 'Love You'. No cuddle-time...Silly Geno - don't know what good a fish could be.

Tuesday night Dad, Uncle Geno and Uncle J.J. joined a full house to see one of the cinema's greatest films, "THE RULES OF THE GAME" (1938 Dir: Jean Renoir). What a joy to see this on the Big Screen again.

  Hi dear friends-from Mr Ziggy
...I am doing well in my appointed obedience training, but my dad will visit me in a week! I am being treated well, but I miss them, that will be the real test to see if I am ready to come back to my home with Jenny & dad! If I try to eat my dad, that will not be a good thing, we'll see! Thanks for being my friend Ms Chyna, you are very special to this little Macaw...

Forever love from Mr Ziggy and daddy

  Hey ziggy
Pops has learned that there is more to life, than BC, in the early hours of the morning. He has managed to find other things to accomplish, and it has helped his attitude, and mood. You've been around since, forever, and know it's not fun like it use to be a few years ago.

So while we will be on, now and then, it will NOT be every day for hours at a time, like back in the day. We figure that of the 20 some thousand people registered, on BC, LESS than 1/2of 1% are active. On some days, I send out 20-30 blogs, and if I'm lucky, I hear back from 4-5 people. I guess that over the last few years I've managed to do something bad, in their oatmeal.Squak

Hey Zig -

Hello from Buffalo, NY

Cold, rain-snow mix here. Quiet morning here in my Kingdom.

Dad and Uncle Geno went to a special Theater showing of Terrence Malick's "DAYS OF HEAVEN" (1978), which has some of the most breathtakingly beautiful photography - great to see on The Big Screen.

Happy Saturday from Buffalo

We here in Buffalo are missing the brunt of the major storm - but don't cry for us - we get enough of our own snowstorms.

= = =
Thursday evening, Dad, Uncle Geno and Uncle J.J. went to see a live theater production of Arthur Miller's "ALL MY SONS", which was excellent. It's one of Dad's favorite plays, and a difficult work to do well. A good night of theater.

= = =
I hadn't seen Uncle Geno in a few days, but he was visiting last night. His beard is extra long right now - and he's extra Scruffy. He's so much fun to play around.

Happy Wednesday.

Dad and Uncle Geno took Uncle JJ out to dinner last night for his 64th Birdthday.
{my, that's old}. They went to a favorite local spot with good Italian Food.
--
It was a very cold day, 10 degrees with the wind-chills bringing the feeling below zero.
Thank goodness we didn't get much new snow - but still a bitter cold day.
--
After dinner they watched the movie "Without Love" with Katherine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy and Lucille Ball (1945). Dad had never heard of it before - nice film.

Have a great day
