  Hello Green~
I hope you had a wonderful day. It was a pretty nice one here. We had some computer problems but mom ran a scan and it all seems to be running okay now.
I spent the day supervising chores and playing with toys. Dad is home and he is a bit messy. There is of course tons of laundry stacked in the living room! Really kind of boring around here but that is just fine by me!
Mom did the market thing early today since dad had 2 doctor appointments. He has to squeeze them all in when he is home. I don't know when he is going to go back out on the road.
Enjoy the evening and I do hope it's perfect!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! I'm having an apple right now so life is good!hehehehehe
Mom is such a dork!! We saw your hatchday over on Facebook and she did not remember to go back to the calendar page to check out if you were there! We are putting it in right now and I'm going to put a note up so that every bird can get over here and wish you a belated happy hatchday! I know you had a great day!
Mom has to go to the market today and get me more fruit. She forgot to pick up apples yesterday so I had to have my veggies first! I suppose it was okay to switch it around since food is one of my favorite things and I don't suppose it matters when I eat what!!
You enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Green~
I hope you are having a great day! Absolutely nothing of interest going on in my world but I did want to come by and say hello!
We have been doing more spring cleaning this week and it's really not very exciting at all!! Mom scrubbed the sliding glass door and the screen! It's so bright and pretty and I have an excellent view of the flags out in front of the complex! It's always windy around here so they are always flapping! They have red tulips on the flags and I enjoy watching them wave in the wind!
I hope you are enjoying your day and that window cleaning is not the most exciting thing going on in your life! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  Hi ya Green~
I hope you are having a great day! It's very pretty here! A real spring day!
Mom was off last night and she'll be off again on Friday. She couldn't get two days off in a row this week because there is too much work. It's clearance week plus they added a special weekend ad. The store is having it's Fuschia event this weekend so there will be special sales to go along with it. It's an annual event and everyone looks forward to it. They have geranium and fuschia starts for sale and if you bring your own pot the garden staff will plant them for you. Hanging baskets are a big thing up here so by next week you will be seeing them everywhere.
I have spent the morning trying to keep Merlin away from mom! He had his outside on the balcony time and play with the ribbon time but he is trying to butt into my climb on mom time! I told him he needs to go grab a nap until I'm ready for my apple and then he can jump up on the computer desk again!
We hope mom and Aunt Dede are having lots of fun!! How is my sweetie Peetie doing? I hope the vet visit went well and that he is okay!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's a spectacular day!

  Hello Green~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. I'm getting some computer time this morning! It's been way to busy around here lately and I just don't like it!
Yesterday we took a break in the morning and watched Catching Fire. I really like it! Lots of action and you know I love action movies!
Today we are getting a bit of cooking done and getting mom ready to start her work week. She is going in an hour early tonight since I have been told we are losing an hour tonight! I really don't see any reason that the time has to change! It seems to be working just fine the way it is!
Mom went to Petco to get my Higgins Sunburst and they are out of it again! They say the warehouse is out of it so there is nothing they can do. She got me some Higgins Safflower Gold and it sort of looks and smells the same to me. There are no sunflower seeds in it but that is okay with me! It's only part of what I eat everyday so as long as she keeps a big supply of apples I will be a happy zon!
Spring is inching ever closer and that is making the frog outside my window go crazy! It started with just a few of them but last night it sounded like there were about a thousand of them out there! As long as they are here to announce spring I suppose I can put up with them!
I do hope you enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug as I waddle off!

  GREEEEENN!!! STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING!!!
Do you WANT to be known as "Green the Fiend"? You better suck those hormones of yours back into yourself before you hurt Miss Callie! You have her so worked up that her body is like a egg laying machine with an assembly line inside her! Don't you know that one of those eggs gets bound up inside her...well, it could be disastrous! Poor Miss Callie being put in another room! She gets punished because you have raging hormones! Sam sighs. Listen, I really DO think you are a good bird but someone has to set you down to make you understand what's happening here. I know how much you like Miss Callie. Your good Momma has said the entire neighborhood knows how much you like her! If you settle down & calm down those hormones of yours, she'd be able to come back where'd at least you'd get to see her a little bit! That's better than what it is NOW which is NADA!!

Green, Green, Green. What are we gonna do with you? I'll squawk later with you & see if maybe some yoga or meditation might help you. Sam waves good-bye, not wanting to stress Green anymore than he already is....

  Hello Green~
I hope your are having a great day! I've been having fun playing with mom and snacking of course. She is letting me watch a really cool monster movie called Pacific Rim. It has robots and monsters! Too Cool!
I'm sorry I haven't been around much but the computer is still not working well. We have the files moved and we are just waiting for dad to do the reformatting. He's been busy so there hasn't been any time for him to start doing it yet. I sure am getting anxious about it! It is running very slowly and we can only use Google Chrome to get online. I hope I can convince him to get it done today! After that we have to reload all the programs so that is going to take some time too! Boy! Computers sure are a pain sometimes!
Nothing really exciting going on around here. We've been working on chores around the house during mom's off hours and watching the movies that brother bought after Christmas. I have seen Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness and Man of Steel and now Pacific Rim. It's been a real action-packed weekend around here and I have really enjoyed it! I must admit that the popcorn is pretty good too!!
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's perfect!

  Hello Green~
I hope your day was just wonderful! I had a lot of fun supervising chores around here! I think maybe I had more fun than mom did but she is happy that I am happy!

I have been checking out the other animal channel sites and it looks likes the Cat channel is getting changed on January 1st instead of March 1st. Cori and Boo Boo gave me a heads up about this. There was a blog on the small animal channel so they know. but there doesn't seem to be any blogs on the Horse or Dog channel. I don't know if they are going to be left alone or if they just don't know yet.

I am so sad we are going to lose all of this but I hope we will all stay in touch, either with Facebook or email. I am grateful for every single minute I have had visiting with friends, playing baseball and all the other fun things we do here! To think! This all came into my life because mom and I were looking for pictures of birds for me to look at!!

Enjoy your evening! Sleep tight and sweet dreams!

I hope you are enjoying your day! It's a bit colder here today but clear for now. It's going to be a cold week but they have changed the low temp to 21 instead of the 11 they predicted last week. I suppose it's okay as long as it doesn't snow!
We have lots of chores to get done today so I will be right here with mom supervising and giving her suggestions! I am really good at it!
Poor Mandy hurt herself last night! Mom took her for a walk before her dinner and when they came back up, Mandy and Merlin started to do the bouncing at each other that they do when they are happy! Mandy hurt her leg and couldn't stand for a while. She is old and has arthritis so she needs to take it slower. She just doesn't remember that she is not a puppy anymore! Mom put a heating pad on her leg and went over to the market at 11pm last night to get baby aspirin. Mom had to feed her by holding her bowl up to her since she was having trouble standing. Merlin tried to stick his furry nose in the bowl so mom was trying to get him to get out of the way and I was helping by yelling at the cat!
She slept really well and this morning mom got a box and covered it up to make a table for her to eat from. She did fine and when mom came to get me this morning, Mandy was bouncing down the hall! She really needs to cut that out! She did fine on her walk this morning and mom says we just have to keep an eye on her and makes sure she takes it slowly. I can help with that since I'm the bossy one around here!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's perfect!

  Hello Green~
I hope you are having a great day! Was Thanksgiving wonderful?? We are just doing ours today. The turkey is cooked and the other stuff is in the fridge too! When the skin brother gets home from work, we'll eat! Well, mom survived another Black Friday. It was very busy! Mom read online that 56% of people surveyed said they were not going shopping today because it was too busy. Mom thinks a big number of them lied because there were lots of people waiting at 5am at mom's store. It looks like everyone had fun and all the people mom helped were very nice. The first lady she encountered saw a table with bath towels ~ half off ~ and asked if that was all the towels they had! Mom laughed because they have about 12 different collections of bath towels! She helped some ladies find luggage because for some reason it is in storage, then she helped people find board games and finally Christmas lights. She did all this in just the half hour before she got off! The whole ad was a ton of work but she hopes everyone enjoys shopping.
Enjoy the day! I hope it's just perfect!

"Thank you so very much for the flowers! They are simply beautiful! It was such a lovely surprise to get them!

Are you all having Thanksgiving at home? Hanukkah starts tonight too! Did you know that it was on Thanksgiving once back in the 1800's and that it will never happen again! Kind of makes both days extra special this year! We won't be doing dinner until Friday since mom is working and so is the skin brother! I view everyday as a holiday so it's just fine with me!

Thanks again sweetie and enjoy the day!!

  Novemebr 20th Spotlight on Caring
Novemebr 20th Spotlight on Caring
Hello every bird, SKY here with our continuing SPOTLIGHT on CARING featuring our good friends Polly, Zippy and their Mom Karen.

SKY; Please continue. Did you get another bird right away?
Mom Karen; No, After taking the opportunity of not having pets to paint and refloor the house,we got another budgie. This time thru the family owned pet store “Preuss”; they advertised in Bird Talk and have a well trained staff in their bird room.
SKY; When did Polly join your family?
Mom Karen; Shortly thereafter, mom was told by another parent at the Middle School that the science teacher was looking to rehome a parrot. This was Polly.
SKY; Did you run into any difficulties when you made the choice to add Polly to your home?
Mom Karen; Polly came to us rather neurotic. We are her 4th known home. She had been taken to a vet and just started on a pelleted diet. Feathers had just started filling in again. She also had a missing toe.

My husband did a bit of looking on the internet about Quakers. Mom just wanted a larger parrot that might live longer than a budgie. Polly was to be my daughter's bird. They did bond well.
Not really understanding the feeding habits of a bigger bird, I may have unintentionally 'starved' Polly initially. She had a food cup FULL of dust or crumbs--but she does not eat dust, crumbs (the cockatiel DOES she eats the pellet dust, crumbs), so I was waiting for the food dish to go down.
My daughter was in high school with all the activities of that time of life. Polly did not get consistent attention, though she did appear in a few video projects.
SKY; Was there any problems that developed from this inconsistent interaction?
Mom Karen; He started pulling feathers again, so I took him to MSU to a vet who taught avian vet medicine. She is the mother-in-law of one of the two avian vets we see at the vet clinic we use. She did not push me to get the $200+ blood work done, and my spouse is not keen on spending on pets, so that was not done until this vet retired and we saw our current vet. He did NOT ask, just did and charged. But that began me becoming VERY familiar with the clinic.

Polly needed vitamin A injections a couple times each year. We tried several kinds of collars. We tried the vet version of prozac. Eventually we took him off the drug because he was too lethargic. Thru the process of being on this drug I had to learn HOW to inject him. That was a bit nerve wracking for me.
See you next week with the conclusion of our interview with Polly, Zippy and Mom Karen.
with a heart filled with love
SKY

V4U today. Nothing new here. Had some stormy weather but nothing serious, just very strong wind and heavy rain. We have most of the Christmas decorating done now, just a little bit left to do. The days are flying by so fast, pretty soon it will be Thanksgiving. Wishing you a nice day. From, Dandy

V4U today. Quill was our very first cockatiel. She lived to be 15, and flew the Rainbow Bridge many years ago. Nothing new here. Just busy as always. The days seem to be just flying by. Hoping to have the Christmas decorations up by Thanksgiving for the family meal. Have some decorations up so far, still more to do. Wishing you a nice day. From, Dandy

  Hi Green
Spot Le'Blaze-atiel, 242573
Today, in the profile picture you can see several different types of the mittens! At the top left, you see a line of mittens made into an advent calendar! The numbers are the days. Each day, you slide one over leaving a space between it and the next mitten. Each day, on the back of the mitten is written a Christmas treat for your mom to give you as you wait patiently for Santa Birdy to get here! Fun to look at, and the treats keep you checking the calendar each day!Hehee!!!
On the top right, you can see three eggsamples of the cloth mittens. Notice that these are hung with clothspins! Fill them with treats and when your friends come over, give them one to keep and enjoy!
At the bottom, you can see all white mittens(craft paper) that can be decorated in many, many ways!
I, birsonally like the way they look together with their different decorations!
Many thanks to Boo Boo and Cori, who worked very hard to decorate and cut out and sew the differant kinds of mittens! Enjoy making and hanging them in your house!
One tip: Think of one of your friends as you make them, and pray for them and their flockilies!
Luv, Spot?

  Hi Green
V4U today. Well, between you and me I don't think that mom is in any hurry to take a Thanksgiving picture of our flock. Here is her reasoning on that.......She says that the pirate pictures can really double as Thanksgiving pictures, because it looks like we are Pilgrims on the Mayflower. LOL :) Have a good day, Green. From, Dandy

  Hi Green and family
Spot Le'Blaze-atiel!
Good morning or afternoon! As you can see, Cori and Boo Boo helped out today with the mittens!
These can be made from material or paper! To make them out of material, simply cut two mitten patterns out and put them right sides together. Then sew around the sides, turning down the top and stitching a hem in the open part! Turn them right side out and decorate with whatever trims strike your fancy!
If you make them out of paper, cut out one mitten pattern and decorate it any way you like!
Again, we made blue mittens with gold stars on them for that co-ordinated designer look!
I'd like to thank my helpers today, who also made a mitten for our furball friend!
Also, if you make the material mittens, you can put bird treats in them and give them to your friends!
I'd also like to report that Boo Boo restrained herself with the glitter, eggcept for one unfortunate incident with the glue and blue glitter(check out the back of my head and neck) she was very neat and tidy. (Cori was surprised, but I think it was the look mom gave her after the 'incident' that calmed her down!Hehee)
I do sincerely thank all of you for your support and wish you joy in making your ornaments!
Luv, Spot?

Tomorrow, I plan to start making mittens to hang on the tree! I think Cori, and Boo Boo would be greyt helpers on these! So, check by and see us working on mittens as decorations! Bring your glitter and glue, and safety scissors too!Hehee! Little Angel, you be care with that glue! OH NO!! Too late, look out.........Well so much for the Sparkles she had hidden in her pocket.

To make a heart ornament, simply fold whatever color of craft paper you want, and cut out a heart shape. Then open it up, and using a small brush, brush on Elmer's glue in a pattern you like and put glitter on it. Or, cut out differant shapes, and stick them on with the glue! Then you can put ribbons, or any other decorations of pictures you like on them. As you can see, Parker, Tweety and I chose a red heart for all of ours so we would get that co-ordinated decorations look! You can make individual heart ornaments, or string them together in a garland effect, which can be used on your tree or on a mantel, or anywhere you'd like to put ornaments to brighten up your house! Let your imagination run wild! I'd like to thank Parker and Tweety for coming over and making hearts today! Have fun with yours!
Luv, Spot?

Hi Everybirdy!
Imagine my surprise when mom went on the 'puter and I was in the spotlight as BOTD! Wow! Thank you everybirdy!
Today, instead of my BOTM blog, I'm going to go everywhere and thank my friends for this honor! Tomorrow, Mr. Tweety and Parker will be joining me in making our first decorations! We'll be making a heart ornament that can be hung individually, or strung together as a garland! Bring all your favorite trimmings to go on your hearts! The choices are as big as your imagination! You can get gold or silver rick-rack trim, or whatever you want for your hearts! Look around your house first for free stuff! Most trims can be bought cheaply at a dollar store! Some of them come in bags with plenty left over for more projects!
Let your imaginations go wild!

  Hi Green
V4U today. My mom took our Halloween pictures off today and then realized that she didn't take a Thanksgiving picture of our flock yet. I think she should get busy on that, don't you? LOL :) I told her that she better have a piece of millet waiting for us for our hard work. LOL :) Wishing you a nice day. From, Dandy

  hi Green & flock
Spot Le'Blaze-tiel for BOTM!
This campaign is dedicated to Ms. Chirps, my fister who flew to the Rainbow Bridge Monday. She loved to make things with her own wings and was very talented at it.
I'd like to thank each and every bird who came over with condolances and flowers and wing hugs and lots of comfort for myself and mama Rea! You cannot imagine what that showing of love and prayers meant to us!
In my Campaign, I will be showing you how to make some beautiful, simple decorations for your Christmas trees and mantels. Chirps and I always loved a homespun look and we hope you all will make some beautiful ornaments, garlands and other decorations for the holiday!

Here's a basic list you will need for most of the projects(most can be found in the dollar stores!)
You will need:
A spool of monofilament fiber(fishing line)
Many colors of craft paper, including black and white.
Some white bird sage glue(like Elmers)
A sharp needle for sewing and/or hole punching.
Differant colored ribbons(differant sizes, too)
A good imagination!
Some glitter(keep it neat Cori, Boo Boo, and Little Angel!)
Some kid proof scissors!
We will do 2 to 3 projects each week! I will show you the patterns and you can get your moms and pops to help you with cutting things out!
Remember, safety, first, last, and always!
I hope you will enjoy our campaign!
