After mom and dad got Tango, my Citron-Crested Cockatoo sister, they wanted another parrot so they came to look at Marc Marrone's birds again. I cried and wailed and stepped over the other greys to get them to see me. That was it. They were sold. I had them.
I could barely walk and had very few feathers. I had to come home in an aquarium tank and mom and dad hand-fed me for a few weeks.

Next came Bumbles,a Rose-Breasted Cockatoo, who was rescued from a man who couldn't bring Bumbles with him to his new condo in Florida. You can see pictures of him below, with me. He now lives with Dad. I miss him a lot but he is happy and I get to see him sometimes.

Mom strongly encourages people to get a rescue bird. So many abandoned birds need a home with someone who will give them tons of love and care. And they have so much to give in return!

Hi! My name is Kahlua

I am an African Grey from Wappingers Falls, NY.

Lu, Lu-Lu Bird, Louie, Grey-Grey (she gave herself), Beautiful

10 years old   F

African Grey

Sun Seed Sesame Rounds (but only the peanut ones and only the peanut inside), anything mom eats (although I don't get everything I want), Chex cereal, cashews, pine nuts, almonds, and walnuts. I like apples and grapes and blueberries too. I try to drink the juice out of the grapes! I would eat candy, like jelly beans or Skittles if only mom would let me. I don't understand why I can't have those things!

I love to sit on the chair or a pillow next to mom, on her knee when she reads, under a blanket when I'm tired, my green curvy perch, and on mom's laptop while she works. Of course I like to be in the highest place I can be. I love rope swings too and spiral hanging ropes but our apartment ceiling where we live now doesn't hold any type of hook. The ceiling just crumbles and the rope falls down. :-(

I hate loud or unfamiliar noises and I try to hide under the table, bed, or even a pillow.

I shake my head if I don't like something -- a song, a noise, a TV show. I'll keep shaking until it stops.

I like to cuddle on mom's chest at a certain time of night and will intentionally try to disrupt any activity she's doing if it gets too late.

I hate to see myself on video shake my head to "no" to tell mom to turn it off.

Also I will not do stuff in front of the camera. I will stop whatever I'm doing. Mom has to hide the camera to get me on video.

I don't like the word "bye" or "good-bye". I refuse to say it or acknowledge it if someone says it to me. When mom goes out and I have to go to my cage, I go on one of my perches and I sulk. I won't play or do anything until mom comes back home.

I am not happy that mom and dad are not together anymore. Dad has my old friend, Bumbles, the Rose-Breasted Cockatoos you see in my photos, and the parakeets. Bumbles was my partner in crime. He was adopted by mom and dad and he got in lots of trouble all the time. He used to teach me all these bad habits!


Mom acts silly and sings and dances with me.
She buys me my favorite treats and cuddles with me on my own terms.

She teaches me cool words and phrases and songs.

She bought me fish to watch swim when she isn't home.

She laughs at me and let's
me watch my favorite TV shows.

She knows I don't like to be pet all the the time so she shakes my hand and gives me high-fives.

She lets me "help" her around the house. She tells me how much she loves me.


I love to bite my nails.

I shake my head from side to side before I eat a piece of food.

I want you to rub my head but then I pull away.

I have to be with mom all the time, but don't want to be pet. I just want to sit close. I also have to be with mom anywhere she goes in the house -- not because I don't want to be alone but because I want to know what's going on.

I know when mom is about to cry and I make the same crying noises too.

And I laugh and cry while watching TV shows before the audience even gets a chance to laugh.

I love Judge Judy and will do the intro song to Judge Judy at 4pm if mom doesn't have it on when she's home. Mom thinks I probably do it even when she isn't here!

I'll also do the PC Richards Jingle at 4PM because they used to sponsor the time and temperature message that came on right before Judge Judy. I do that jingle all the time too.

I used to do the Jeopardy jingle at exactly 7pm when mom used to watch that.

I like to "help" feed the fish mom got. If she doesn't feed them at the right time, I go to the end of the bed and bop my head "yes" and call to mom to remind her it's time.

I love to imitate the noise they use to bleep out bad words on TV programs.

I hate pooping in my cage. I will hold it in all night until I get up and out of my cage in the morning. During the day, I like to go in Tango's cage. Why mess up my cage?

Sometimes, when I see a picture of my old friend, Bumbles, or if he comes to see me, which is not often, I often start doing all those things I'm not supposed to do that Bumbles taught me.
.

I'm a cool grey! (I taught myself that phrase.).

I hope you are having a wonderful day! I finally have some time to get a note out! Dad has been home for a few days and is now getting ready to head out again. He was suppose to go tomorrow but there might be snow in the mountains tomorrow so he is getting a head start to avoid the snow!
Just the usual stuff going on around here. Lots of cleaning up and boring stuff like that. I have kept myself busy with toys and snacks and lots of play time with mom.
I hope your night is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug! Hope you are staying warm! Spring is only 27 days away!

Happy Valentine's day! Mom is starts her workweek tonight so we are having a little celebration for lunch! There are some yummy apple muffins just waiting for this little zon to sink her beak into them!
We are getting some cooking done and some laundry too. We never seem to run out of laundry for some reason! The dog is going to get another bath and then mom will be off to bed and I'll be off to the night cage to destroy another toy!
Enjoy your day!

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a great day! I heard that BC was all messed up this morning! They usually do that on Sunday mornings but maybe they were busy yesterday!
The school bus was late this morning!!! I know what you are thinking~~Sugar has no little kids in her house so why is she worried about the school bus being late??
Well, the little kids love to stand in the driveway while waiting for the school bus and pump their arms up and down! This causes the many big rigs going down our street to honk their loud honking horns!!!! A few times is cute but when the school bus is 8 minutes late, you get it 22 times! It quit being cute after the 3rd time! Lets hope Mr. Bus Driver will be much more punctual tomorrow! Sugar will be checking up on him!!!!!!
Ian worked his first ever overnight last night. He came right home and went to sleep!HAHAHAHAHAHA Mom has already cleaned the carpet in the living room, mopped the dining room and done 2 loads of laundry! She would love to come home and go to sleep but I am use to my schedule and need to have my toast and my apples and tell mom all about what went on while she was at work! Since we are all sleeping while she is at work, there usually isn't much to tell!
I hope your day is just wonderful!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

The weather has been so mild here that the frogs think it's time to get out and do come croaking!! I think there were a gazillion of them last night!! The moat is filled up from all the rain we have had and they were having a croaking party down there! The sparrows were sitting on the balcony this morning too. The trees have not started blooming so it's not really spring but is sure sounded like it last night!hehehehehe
We are going to get some cooking done today and mom has to go get Merlin more food and litter. There will be the usual laundry and mom is going to clean out the fridge too. We still have to figure out where to put the stuff they bought at Costco yesterday.
I hope your day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Kahlua
Wow, that disease is serious! Poor mom, hope she's getting the support and the meds she needs to combat it. We loved the Puppy Bowl, mom recorded it and we watched it last night. Okay, mom recorded the Fish Bowl on Sunday. If anyone is interested, don't bother! It was just a bunch of goldfish bowls, some containing clownfish, set around a farmyard, so cows, pigs, sheep, bunnies, and horses could see them. It was boring, and mom deleted it after fast forwarding to see if anything changed.
Well, Punxsutawney Phil predicted 6 more weeks of winter. At least he didn't bite anyone's ear. (We caught that on the news last night, but don't remember where it happened.) Not much new to report, it's still cold and mom isn't going out much. Chyna should be home today, as her mom and dad stayed at a friend's home last night.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

I hope you are having a great day! I am supervising laundry today! It's a rough job but some bird has to do it! I really don't know what mom would do without me here to yell and fuss while she is trying to get chores done! I really do think it makes her move faster!hahahahahahaha
Well the Seahawks have shown us how to win a game in 3 minutes and now how to lose one in 26 seconds! They are still my team, I am still a 12th bird and I really am very proud of all their achievements this year! I hope they are proud of themselves too and just move on!
One very nice story is that Chris Pratt~from Seattle and the star of Guardians of the Galaxy~and Chris Evans~from Boston and is Captain America~made a bet. If the Hawks won Chris Evans would visit Children's Hospital in Seattle dressed as Captain America! If the Patriot won Chris Pratt would visit a charity in Boston dressed as Star Lord! Even thought the Patriots won, Chris Evans is coming to Children' Hospital Seattle!! They are both really good guys! Those kid's are going to be so excited!
Punxsutawney Phil says there will be 6 more weeks of winter! I really don't think that was a hard call at all!!! Did you know that in the old days the use to eat the groundhog! Is that gross or what???? ICK! The poor groundhog and really?? Who eats groundhogs? Guess they didn't have McDonalds back then!hahahahahaha
I hope your day is just fabulous!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Kahlua
Mom's sister drove last night, so it worked out well. They went around 5, too, so it was a good time to do dinner, even though mom likes to eat a lot later instead.
We'll have to check on what sarcoidosis is. Is it lungs, specifically?
Happy Birthday to Langston Hughes. Maybe because mom worked in a ghetto school, or maybe because she loved his poetry, she always remembers his birthday. Of course it's the start of Black History month as well, so that's a good way to remember him. If you don't know his poetry, Google it, it's really lyrical.
It's snowing again here, so what else is new? We are supposed to get 3 to 5 today, then it turns to rain, then it snows again overnight to make tomorrow's commute a lot of fun. Mom is supposed to work at the museum today, but our street hasn't been cleaned yet, and if it doesn't get cleaned by noon, she will call off. It's not going to be a crowded day there anyway, we suspect, between the weather and the Superbowl.
Will you be watching the Puppy Bowl today on Animal Planet? We sure will, mom loves those little guys for some reason. I think a bird makes a much better friend, but humans are funny about those furry little pups and kittens.
I hope if you're having a Superbowl party, the weather cooperates with you. We want to wish both teams good luck, but GO SEAHAWKS!
Have a great day, keep warm, and get lots of cuddles, scritches, and maybe a few extra snacks. Hugs, Falco

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a fun day! I'm done with my yelling for now and have gone back to chomping down on my veggie bowl. I got apple last night so mom gave me veggies this morning. It's fun to switch it around sometimes and as long as I get something I like to eat, I don't seem to mind!
The last load of laundry is in the washer and mom had some to put away. We seem to be doing laundry everyday now so it is not such a big deal.
There is a big line at the Starbucks next door! They are selling Seahawk Fraps! Mom treated herself to one after she renewed her license yesterday and it was yummy! It's the Vanilla cream, which mom likes anyway, with blueberries and a green tea whip on top! Seahawk colors! There are Seahawk colors everywhere up here today and I imagine tomorrow will be the same! Mom wore her 12th shirt to the DOL but the drivers license picture is only your face so you can't see the shirt! BUMMER! Almost everyone at the DOL was in Seahawk gear, even the employees! I think it's going to seem a bit dull around here without Blue Fridays!
I hope your day is just perfect! I hope your mom is well! Remember that you are all in our prayers everyday. Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Kahlua
I've missed you! It's good to hear from you, and I hope mom's health problems are soon solved. It's good that she's thinking about her own place again, too. It's going to be better for all of you, and if she's in a decorating mode, who knows what might happen. We are doing pretty much the same as usual, ready for spring, though. It's too cold, and mom hates the snow and shoveling the driveway. It's a lot of work. We are expecting another snowstorm tomorrow through Monday. Hope it isn't as bad as predicted.
King Peppino is inviting everyone to stop by his page and share in the fish fry (bake and grill, too) that he's hosting today for his last day in the castle.
It's cold and dry here today. No snow is expected until tomorrow. Mom will spend the day doing laundry and cleaning up a few things, then will go to dinner with her sister this evening. She's hoping her sister will want to come this way, so she doesn't have to drive. The driveway is still a little icy because the salt only melts at a certain temperature and it is colder than that. Of course, the sun could warm up the asphalt enough to melt it, too.
There's nothing else going on, but I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. It is the weekend, after all! Hugs, Falco

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Mom spent way too much time running around today and I didn't like it at all. Everyone else had to go to work and all at different times. Dad was going to leave early but they changed his pick up time. He was gone for an hour and a half this morning and told mom he was going to get some groceries for the truck. He never made it so mom took him to the market before she took him to the truck! Just crazy today and it didn't seem like a day off for mom at all!
The good news is that the NFL said that Taima can lead the Seahawks out of the tunnel for the Superbowl! YAY! I don't know what the Seahawks would do without him! He is a very important member of the team! Even people who don't like the Seahawks have to admit that Taima is the coolest mascot in the entire NFL!
Dad tried putting the old phone, that went through the washer, in a bag of rice to see if it would dry out that way but so far it still won't turn on. I don't suppose it matters now since he has the new one.
I hope your evening is a relaxing one! Mom and I certainly plan on one!

I hope you guys are having a great day! It's been boring around here but that is just fine with me. Mom worked last night and now we have our weekend again! I think she should take 3 days off every week!!
Dad washed his $300 Galaxy phone in the washing machine last night! Guess what? It doesn't work anymore!hahahahaha He is a bigger dork than mom is and that's saying something! He really can't function without his phone. It's a very sad, sad thing!hehehehehehe
He went by Costco and got another one. Let's hope he doesn't wash this one! He got the warranty on it but I do not think it will cover things done to it by dumb users!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Happy TGI Blue Friday! There are lots of events going on up here before the big game on Sunday. It is going to be an exciting weekend up here!
Jennifer's boss sold her playoff tickets for $500 a piece!!! She is a season ticket holder so they always get a chance to buy their seats first. She is going to use the money to buy plane tickets to Arizona to see the Superbowl! She is that confident that the Seahawks are going to the Superbowl again! I must say that I agree with her! GO HAWKS!!!
It's a pretty quiet day around here. Everyone else is at work and when Ian gets off he is going to take the Sounder train up to Seattle to visit with his friends again. The one who lives in Pennsylvania is going home tomorrow.
Me and mom are going to continue with cleaning and do some cooking. Mom is off for 3 days after Saturday night so we don't need to cook too many meals. I think baking some cornbread would be an excellent idea!!

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 from TiPaul

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 from TiPaul.

I hope all is well with you, Tango and mom! I really didn't mean to take forever to get back over here!
We hope things are going well for your mom. We know how hard it has been on her. We hope everything works out great for her. Is she still thinking about moving out of state?
Not much exciting going on around here. Dad went back out on the road and mom is just working and taking care of us. The dog takes a lot of more time to take care of because of her age. It cuts into my time on the BC but that is just the way it is!
I hope you know we still say a prayer for you guys every night and hope that you are all happy and well!!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Kahlua
No birdy bag for me, I'm a fussy eater. The boys and Maxine might have enjoyed some, though. Mom thought it might be a bit too seasoned for them, though.
Last night was Daisy's last class for this term. Since mom barely worked with her over the past 2 weeks, she didn't do well. She was fine when mom was having her do her sits, downs, and stays, but when the instructor came by, she stood up and wagged her tail! She was the class clown last night. She still got a certificate, though.
After mom walked the dogs today, she shoveled the driveway, as nobody came by to do it yet. It's about 12 outside with a much colder wind chill.
Today mom had an eye appointment. The good news is that she did not need a shot. The bad news is that she has to go back in 6 weeks. Why is this bad? It's because they are moving the office out to Monroeville, a whole lot closer to our house and with free parking, but they aren't moving until March. So mom and her sis have to drive one more time into Oakland and pay $6 or $7 to park for an hour while mom is at the appointment. They were both hoping the next appointment would be in the new offices.
Hope you are having a good day and getting cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hi Kahlua
We hope that job will come along soon, too. You and mom deserve the best.
Thanks everybirdie for helping me reach 25k. Cookie cast the big vote!
Today mom did the usual at the center, the raccoons outside and the RVS room with the 2 groundhogs and the 3 bats. The dishes outside were frozen to the ground, as were all the poo and food scraps, so it was tough cleaning. The temps here were 61 yesterday and 17 today, with a wind chill of 3. What a change!
Yesterday mom went out to dinner with her family and had a wonderful Caribbean meal. They went to Kaya in the Strip district, which specializes in kind of pan Caribbean food. Mom got spicy paella, which was full of the seafood you'd expect, as well as pineapple, which you wouldn't. They ended the meal with a rum cake from Moio's, the great local Italian bakery.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of warm cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hi, Kahlua
You'll probably find that many pics are duplicates or similar to another one. Good if can get it saved and stored elsewhere.

Sounds like watching the snow was fun if inside. Seen falling snow around here a couple of times but it was very brief and was gone quickly. The first time mom was in high school and everyone went outside to eggsperience it.

Yeah, mom wants to always be able to hear what we are up to and the hallway to the back rooms are at an angle so wouldn't be that easy to wheel our birdhouse there. We like to be able to see what is going on even if we aren't out.

How fun to have the nephews visit. No such thing as a small ham. Mom's sis got one for the holidays and with only her and her hubby can't really finish it off. The parronts at least had skinsis and her hubby share theirs so didn't go to waste.

Just glad that we're still able to visit, vote and blog despite the BC issues.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Kahlua
It's not your computer, it's BC. They are horrid this weekend, as every weekend. Mom says they've been running slow for at least a week, too.
Trying to blog is a real exercise in futility! It's taken 15 minutes to do 3 blogs!
Our weather is so weird, it rained and was icy yesterday, and today it's raining but about 60 degrees out there!
We don't seem to have avatars or aviaries today, and haven't seen new pics at all. The BOTD spot on the sign in page is blank, but when we clicked on it, we did get to Jewel's page. Hope they can clear this up on Monday. Chyna left a note on the calendar page about reporting problems, so I'm not going to repeat it, but please write to i5 and let them know what's going on if you are having issues.
Today mom slept in, nearly til 9! She's usually up much earlier, but staying up to watch football did her in! The Steelers lost their game, though, so she won't be staying up late to see any more games.
Today mom will go to dinner with her daughter, son in law, and the grands. It will be an early dinner, but that's okay. She also has to get some laundry and shopping done. It should be a good day, unless BC continues to be as slow as it has for the past few days. I hope you are having a good day and getting some attention from your loved ones. Hugs, Falco

  Hi, Kahlua
Yeah, pics and music do take up a lot of puter space. Would imagine a video would take up a lot of space as well. Could be that the puter is dusty inside since both you and Tango (like us 'tiels) are considered dusty birds and always in the air. Hopefully your mom can find a place to diagnose it and isn't overly costly.

Be nice to have a dedicated bird room. The parronts could do it here since skinsis married and moved out, but the eggstra bedrooms are in the back of the house and we'd feel isolated.

Dad still has some stuffed cabbage. He loves it but says needed more sauerkraut, heehee.

Our dad used to keep a salt water aquarium. They were the pets before us birds. When they bought their house wasn't a good place to set it up so they never redid it. They are quite soothing to watch, very colorful.

Continues coldish here but sunny. Hope our bad air of yesterday is gone though without much wind not sure.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Kahlua
Hope your New Year's day was a fun one. Ours sure was! Mom had a bunch of people over, and we all love to show off for guests. As promised, here are some pics of the flower show at Phipps. The Wreaths and poinsettia tree were in the entryway. The little tree in the 4th spot in the gallery is at the beginning of the palm room. On the top row of my gallery are the painting Lena did of mom, and the front and back of her new purse that her daughter gave her. Mom figures it's a high end purse, because it came with a bag to store it in, and she's never had a bag to store her purse in before, haha. It's an Annuschka bag, hand painted leather, and very beautiful.
This morning at the center mom cleaned the raccoons and ground hogs and bats again. The good news is that one of the other volunteers came in to help her feed the bats, otherwise she would probably still be there!
I hope today brings you lots of good cuddles and scritches! Hugs, Falco

  Hi, Kahlua
Do you know Raffikki? (He's today's BOTD.) He would tell you that NC is a fabulous place to live. Can't recall where his family lived previously but somewhere it snowed and they don't miss that at all. Snow looks pretty in moderation but know that shoveling and digging out, etc, would be a chore our mom is glad never to have to eggsperience.

Uh, oh, puter low on memory? That happened to our mom's as well. She eventually just got a new one that had more memory space but she figured out that her music took a lot of space and she was allowing it to b/u on the puter rather than the cloud. Same with pics taking up lots of space. There are bound to be places that will diagnose a puter for free and hopefully she'll find it is just lots of stuff that can be deleted to free up space. We look forward to seeing the video of you.

Yesterday mom made dad his family's traditional New Year's meal of stuffed cabbage. She doesn't care for it so he'll have the entire pot to savor and enjoy.

Mom used the garden broccoli for both holiday meals and dad even gave some to the neighbors. There's only a lil bit left.

It is good for your mom to keep learning. Not all are interested in architecture but each to their own.

  Hi Kahlua
Mom worked at the museum again today, she did the American Indian cart, so she brought touchables out from the Iroquois, the Lakota, the Tlingit, and the Hopi. She saw lots of people, but the museum wasn't as crowded as it was on Sunday. That day the admissions recorded over 4000 people. Today, mom is guessing in the vicinity of 2500 or so.
I want to wish you a very Happy New Year, I probably won't be back online until tomorrow evening. Tomorrow is mom's open house for New Year's day, so she'll be busy with humans all day long, coming and going. She'll be up early to put on the pork roast and sauerkraut, too. Any one who lives close by (Carol, Jinky) is invited of course. We wish all our birdie friends could come visit us.
Hope you are having a great day full of fun and attention. Hugs, Falco

  Hi, Kahlua
Brrrrrrr, looks cold there.

Thanks so much for flying over. We only recently flew over to FB to see Cookie's new video so checked out all the old postings and saw the one your mom put up. Rather upsetting to hear all she's going thru healthwise, workwise and having to deal with her father too. Everyone understands and just glad you are there to offer Grey therapy and Tango the 'Too therapy. Know having fids to care for takes one's mind off their own troubles.

We aren't big on toys but we got a new water dish (dad had to add special tape to it so it fits our holder) and some yummy treats. Haven't actually had the treats yet as have to finish the bag of avi cakes first. However, we got some fresh broccoli from the garden and love that stuff. So awesome you are learning to say so much and hope you are enjoying your new toys.

Not much new with us. The grand is getting bigger. Smiles a lot and babbles. No teeth yet but is just beginning to crawl.

We'll keep our wings crossed for your mom.

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you had a wonderful day and I hope your Christmas was fabulous!
Mom got home late from work this morning so my schedule was all off! At first I was pretty upset but it turned out okay since mom doesn't have to work tonight and spent lots of time with me.
There were lots of people at the store very early today. All the Christmas stuff was 75% off so they were grabbing stuff right and left! Mom managed to grab the cards for next year and two really nice shopping bags. They have Christmas pictures on them but who cares! One of them will be our new book bag since they are water proof. The old one is starting to rip on the bottom!
There was no traffic to report on the radio news show this morning so they were reporting when each mall was going to open!!! You would think everyone would be tired of shopping at this point but it certainly didn't look that way! Ian was suppose to work 4 hours today but he ended up staying for 8 since it was so busy. All those little kids who got gift cards could not wait to get to Toys R Us and find a new treasure! It's always exciting when they have their own money to spend!
Enjoy your evening and I hope it's just perfect!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

PS Chipper made 10K today so I hope you will congratulate her if you haven't already!! Thanks!

  Hi Kahlua... TiPaul here
It's Boxing Day and Mom and Dad did not go out shopping. They stayed home and took it easy, and Mom spent time with us. I chewed up one of my new toys - it is almost finished, but that is what it is for, right. I had quite a bit of out of cage time - we all did, until supper time, when we had some leftover turkey, and stuffing, and then mom changed all our food and water bowls and before we knew it, it was dark out and the macaws were shrieking for sleep time. I am tired, after staying up later yesterday, so I am going to finish up all my blogs, and get to sleep soon. If you have not already, stop by and congratulate Chipper for getting into the 10K club earlier today. He is probably still over at the party, having a greyt time. I came home early, to get my blogs done. Hope to see you at the Milonga tomorrow.

Come visit me, Leroy, Little Bit & Chloe - Thank you everybirdy!!, Gizmo - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, Max, Jasper - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, Micky - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, PEPPER - WOW!
