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~I'm riding Jen's pig Ham Bone, in to win!

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...

12 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....

  Hey ziggy
A BIT OF HISTORY I BETCHA DIDN'T KNOW.

Hours after Pearl Harbor was bombed on December 7, 1941, the Secret Service found themselves in a bind. President Franklin D. Roosevelt was to give his Day of Infamy speech to Congress on Tuesday, and although the trip from the White House to Capitol Hill was short, agents were not sure how to transport him safely

At the time, Federal Law prohibited buying any cars that cost more than $750, so they would have to get clearance from Congress to do that, and nobody had time for that. One of the Secret Service members, however, discovered that the US Treasury had seized the bulletproof car that mobster Al Capone owned when he was sent to jail in 1931. They cleaned it, made sure it was running perfectly and had it ready for the President the next day.

Al Capone's 1928 Cadillac V-8 "Al Capone" Town Sedan became the President's Limo in December 1941.

Mechanics are said to have cleaned and checked each feature of the Caddy well into the night of December 7th, to make sure that it would run properly the next day for the Commander-in-Chief. And run properly it did. It had been painted black and green to look identical to Chicago's police cars at the time. To top it off, the gangster's 1928 Cadillac Town Sedan had 3,000 pounds of armor and inch-thick bulletproof windows.

Is Miss Jenny Lynn OK with that? She can be a tad...territorial.
Did dad and his COPD survive Tuesday? It was muggy here and warm, but the heat index was only to maybe mid 90s, so not too bad. And yesterday was quite pleasant. Today is also still on the cooler side, mom may use the oven again.
Mom's hip is recovering nicely, still can't do all SHE wants, but it does make evading her a bit easier, hehehe. Unfortunately, I got collared this morning after 2 ouches. Mom thought she saw me 'playing' with a feather each time. O well, I'll just go pout on my ledge.

Pops said, if we knew then, what we know now, we would have taken much better care of ourselves when we were younger, and wouldn't all the health problems us old folks suffer from. Words of wisdom from him. RT

After reading an article on the finance pages about the K-Cup single brew servings, pops has given them up. It seems that the over all cost is $35.00 a pound, as compared to buying coffee by the bag. OUCH. No wonder my birdie bank is feeling on the light side. RT

70% chance of rain today, and I probably should start thinking about a rain coat. When the chances are that high, we usually get it all darn day. Bummer.

  Hi Ziggy!
i wanna know whas up with this Toosday business? I birdsonally think Macaw Monday rules! Everyone hates Mondays, like that garfield cat. So we macaws make it all better, much better with a macaw. You know what that loudmouth frother Doo did on Saturday? Aunt jeanne was visiting with Angel, her baby green cheek conure. So one by one, we all go out and sit with him outside on the patio. You know Doo has to be out first because we think he is the oldest being the old wild caught fart that he is. Well, I come out next to sit with the little nipper and doo starts this crescendo of wailing and sqauwking, so there I sit on one of the chairs and just squawk back to him in my native ara tongue to shut up! You know he did! i didn't even say it in English and that old Indonesian species got it! Then that Cookie too starts her screaming at night...she wants to come out and watch tv. That frother of my is very spoiled up there in bed with the parronts watching a movie or something. as for me, thank goodness the anger is leveling out and I'm not biting mom like I was earlier this year. I am stepping up like a well bred gentlebird and mom even gives me a treat and I allow her a little scritch. So Mr Anthony, that's my problem tooday, a loud mouth too in the flock, hah! Love to your sweet daddy! Big macaw winghugs, Josh
