T'ealc was in that group of 5 parrots rescued from a pet store basement. The pet store owner told mom that all the conures could live together in the really big cage mom had. That's when Darling snuggled up to Carter and T'ealc snuggled up to Baldrick, so I guess there is divorce in the conure world. PS-Baldrick got the bigger property settlement. 7 years later, Baldrick would leave Teal'c (April 2013) and move in with Charlie Daniels.. Awards

On top of my cage or over at Graceland, Elvis's place.

Hands in the cage..."ATTACK!- !" Any hands at all...BITE!

Right now I pretty much hate her! I have been flying at her arms and head trying to bite her. The testosterone is settling down and so am I and I am adjusting to single life. 10-14-13 I guess living alone isn't sooo bad. I like to make smacking kissing sound to mom.

T'ealc makes kissing noises when you approach his cage, he takes a bath in all the drinking water cups in his cage! Lately, he has an obsession to hang out on Graceland, Elvis's cage.
Teal'c would chew off the flight feathers of his former preen buddy Baldrick. He now has a penchant for hanging out on Graceland, Elvis's cage.

  Hi Teal'c
The Blacklist would be very hard to get into if you didn't start from episode one. It is Mom's trainer's favorite show, so she trusted her judgment enough to order season one and watched it. (The fact that James Spader is one of the stars didn't hurt any.) She is totally hooked now, but she admits she would not have been able to come in on season two and get what it was all about.

I haven't been good, but Mom's face is healing nicely. Apparently I have a real thing for toothbrushes, and when Mom made the mistake of brushing while I was on her shoulder? Well, let's just say the lunge for the brush missed and Mom's mouth took the hit. Probably my worst ever bite; it bled for 4 hours! Genius Dad told Mom to put Neosporin on it every hour or so, and the darned thing is healing up super fast and there clearly will not be any scars. Phew! Dodged a bullet on that one; thanks Dad!

Mom and Dad's trip to the grocery store yesterday was very productive for yours truly. Not only did the sugar snap peas finally improve, but the blueberries were slightly on sale. Not enough to buy pie quantities, but I did get blueberries with my breakfast and Mom had them on her cereal. Good thing since the bananas were all too ripe.

I didn't get my sunbath today until Mom got back from the gym, because the cool down finally arrived. Of course, that is cooling it down to 73. I know many of my BC buddies would consider that a heat wave. We have officially entered "May Gray" though. The clouds were thick this morning and didn't burn off until just before noon. And then of course I had to be coy and play hard to get for my sunbath. Mom got home from the gym at 12:30, and I didn't make it outside till 1:30. After much dodging around, I suddenly decided it was time and climbed right in. Gotta keep Mom guessing!

  Hi Teal'c
Mom has a new favorite show, Black List. It is on NB, and although it isn't Sci Fi it stars James Spader (the original Daniel in the movie Stargate). He is one of Mom's favorite actors. Mom's personal trainer from the gym told her about the show, and she checked it out and decided to buy the DVD of Season one. She is into Season two which is on now and loving it.

Well, the warm weather continues here with a high of 78, and today it was warm without blustery winds so my sunbath was greyt. Luckily it wasn't too hot when I got outside, in spite of having to be coaxed and conned into my carrier (DST helped!). It was 1:30 by the time we made it, but the temp was just perfect. And Dad had mowed the lawn while Mom was at the gym in the morning, so I could tell there weren't any snakes in the grass. He claims that is the only reason he mows, but I don't think I believe him. Now it is supposed to get up to 82 tomorrow, so we will get out early. Good thing Mondays aren't a gym day.

Mom and I shared the last third of her Subway sandwich from Friday night for lunch today. I wanted it so badly I was nipping at her lips to make her open up so I could grab it out of her mouth. She fought back by shoving the sandwich in my face, which actually worked for both of us. However I didn't appreciate her saying I had no manners!

  Hi Teal'c
My dad loves the "tastes like Conure" from your dad, and he uses it all the time. Of course, since I am not a Conure I don't really care. Mom has got to remember to share your blog today with Dad. He will love it.

YAY! I finally got a sunbath today, and it was wonderful. In fact, Mom almost waited too long thinking it wasn't warm enough, but when we got out there at 12:30 she ended up having to roll up her t-shirt sleeves and her pant legs because she was too warm. There was a very nice breeze though, so I liked it just fine....especially with two nutriberries to enjoy while we were out there. And just as we came back inside the neighbor across the street came out to stare at me, so I screamed at him to mind his own business! Mom just chuckled, but I am sure I frightened him.

We had a very nice lunch before we went out there. Mom made a wrap with one slice of deli Black Forest ham and one slice of their turkey with some nice pepper jack cheese to spice it up. In fact, it would have been perfect if she hadn't loaded all that nasty spinach on there. I may even have eaten some by accident, but I am pretty sure I just got meat and cheese. My beak isn't green, is it?

  Hi Teal'c
We had rain all night long, and a bit today. Even so the rainfall for the last 5 days only adds up to .76". So no need to water the lawn (not that we do anyway, what with the drought and all), but it sure isn't enough to raise the level of the reservoirs. Maybe there was some snow in the mountains though. That is even more important for our Spring melt and water supply.

My radio in my room died today. At first Mom thought she had just lost the station, but there was nothing on either AM or FM, so she tossed. Weird, because the TV in the living room is dying too! It has sound, but just a bright line across the middle of a dark screen. Both were really old though, so at least now Mom and Dad can shop for both at once. Dad says they should get a smart TV and put it in the bedroom for Mom to watch and do streaming on from her Amazon Prime, and he will put the bedroom TV in the living room for him. It is a nice TV and only a year old, but it is not wireless and can't do Wi-Fi. Mom says it works for her!

Meanwhile no sunbaths till Thursday or Friday, but the weekend is looking very nice with temps in the upper 70s. Sure hope it turns out to be more real than the "Storm Watch" that didn't leave much rain at all.

If Cookie is being a primadonna, you probably don't want to tell her their pic is doing OK in the voting.
I bet they win some sort of ribbon.

Well, another sunny day here in paradise. I really feel guilty when I give my weather reports, but hopefully you all can enjoy my sunshine vicariously. It only got up to 79 today, but obviously that made for a very nice sun bath. Mom and I both enjoyed our time outside, and then we came in and shared a bowl of jambalaya for lunch. I sure do love that stuff, especially the shrimp. I grab a piece and chew on it till a beak-sized piece tears loose and then I munch all the goodness out. Yum!

Mom and Dad put off the fridge shopping expedition till tomorrow, because by the time Mom got home from two hours at the gym, my sunbath and our lunch she just wanted to nap. That didn't work so well for her, because she couldn't actually get to sleep, but we would rather blog anyway, wouldn't we, Mom?

  Hi Teal'c
Cookie and Picabo are entered in the contest with their pic. It is definitely in the theme of south of the border, and I think it should be a finalist for sure.

Well, I am almost embarrassed to talk about our weather. Not only did I get outside this morning (11:30!!) for a sunbath, but Mom had to move to the shade after 20 minutes because she got too warm. The weather geeks say our high today is 82, but Mom and I think it was much warmer than that.

After we came back inside my mom made herself a protein fruit smoothie for lunch for the first time in a long time. It cooled her right down, and I do like to sip a bit of it. It is pretty tasty. Then we shared one of her healthy cookies for dessert. She kept offering me a bite of cookie, but I really do think it tastes better when I pull it out of her mouth. So she holds a piece in her lips so I don't get mommy germs. She's not sick, so what's the big deal?

Entries to the Love in the Rainforest contest are closed now, and the voting will start tomorrow. Hope you all have been checking out the pics in the Milonga Page gallery, because they are really something special!!

  Hi Teal'c
Tough day today. Mom did her best to spend time with me before leaving for that stupid show (my opinion, she enjoyed it), but she was not paying attention and grabbed me from her knee to put me on her shoulder. Unfortunately she grabbed me from behind, so naturally I bit her hand. She knew it was her fault this time, and I not only didn't get a time out, I didn't even get the "face". However she did bleed on her library book before she noticed her hand was leaking.

However I still was all alone while she went to that musical. She did come in and spend an hour with me as soon as she got home before putting me to bed. Meanwhile my blog is late, and she is not taking my dictation because I am asleep. So take all she says with a grain of salt. It may not be true; I cannot vouch for it.

Do get over to the Milonga Page #165848 and enter the "couples in the Amazon" contest for the milonga. So far my lovely SP and I are the only ones entered.

  Hi Teal'c
If my dad tried to get involved in nail trimming it would be WWIII, so that is never going to happen!!

Well, our rain did not arrive until a few minutes ago, but definitely there was no chance of a sunbath today due to there being no sign of the sun....and it was sure too chilly at 60 degrees. I know, I know, that is balmy temps to my poor buddies back east, but we call that full winter weather. It is supposed to go back up to low 70s tomorrow, but I doubt I will get outside, since Mom has a busy day planned. I will be fighting for any Mom time at all.

Not only is my mean old mom planning on spending a couple of hours at the gym in the morning, but after she gets back home and showers I will only have her for a short visit before she leaves to go see Annie at the local Playhouse that Mom and her friend, Rhonda, have season's tickets to. And then to add insult to injury they are going to dinner! I am so abused!

Be sure to go by the Calendar Page or the Milonga Page #165848 and check out the details on this month's milonga. I think it will be a lot of fun, and there is a contest which is always a great time leading up to the party. King Amando is joining Taz and I this time to make things eggstra special!

  Hi Teal'c
Well, no biting today, but unfortunately the one perpetrated yesterday left a very large bruise on my mom's hand. Darned thing is about 3" in diameter, so it is hard for her to forget the bite that brought it on. However since I gave her cuddles and face rubs while we were having our morning visit before the grocery run, I am a good boy and reaping the benefits.

Those benefits would be a nice sunbath which although the wind came up once was still nice since that blast only lasted for about 3-4 minutes. Then we came inside and shared the last half of Mom's chile relleno burrito from yesterday. I think I like the beans the best, but I really enjoy all of it.

And now I am sitting Mom's knee dictating my blogs. I am almost used to my new shorter nails, but I still have a little trouble gripping. Boy, do I miss my nice sharp talons....Mom, not so much.

  Hi Teal'c
Well, I am lucky I am not still in lock down, but I did spend the morning in my room by myself. When Mom came in to give me my pellets and morning nutriberry and visit before going to the gym, I went into a rage for some reason. I attacked her, and bit the back of her hand and when she tried to leave I bit her on the back right thru her shirt. She left and slammed the door, which Dad pointed out to her was not a good idea. Guess I made her pretty mad. I was out of control, and for a moment so was she. She swore I could spend the whole day by myself, but then she was still in pain at that point.

Fortunately by the time she got home from training with Becky (who always puts her in a good mood) and doing zumba, she was not only feeling better but not hurting anymore. So I got my mom time, and even got outside for a short sunbath. Short because the wind came up after abut 20 minutes, and she was worried it was too much for me (or her either). We didn't share lunch, but then she didn't actually eat lunch. So I guess we have made up completely. Still not bringing me into the computer room to blog though.

  Hi Teal'c
Well, Mom has forgiven me for yesterday's bite, even though it was seriously aggravated last night when she forgot about it (see? It stopped hurting) and after washing her hands rubbed them vigorously with a towel and opened it back up again. Since I was already in bed by then, there was no way it was my fault and I was off the hook.

Today I am all upset because Dad is home from work and walking all over MY house. I am stuck in my room with Mom most of the time, but I can hear him walking down MY hallway and so I fly over there and peer under the door. Haven't managed any contact, but the day isn't over yet!

No sunbath today, although it is pretty warm here. However there is a cool breeze blowing, and when that happens it is below birdy temps. As long as I have my mom in my room though, I am good with it. I don't have to worry about nail trimming because she totally forgot she is going to a party at 5, so she doesn't want to leave me here in trauma. However I suspect tomorrow is trim day is Jennifer is working. Am I allowed to hope she is still out sick?

  Hi Teal'c
Hope everybirdy had a good time at the milonga last night. I am afraid I wasn't the best host, since Mom started feeling poorly and left my lovely bride SweetPepper to blog for me about 6:30 our time. However since that is 9:30 back east, the party was almost over anyway. Wasn't it super having Chyna singing by Skype?

Mom went to the gym today, and although she did her full hour with her trainer she only managed 45 minutes of zumba before she felt the cough coming on. However that is 10 minutes better than she did on Friday, so she is headed in the right direction.

When she got home, I wanted to go outside immediately. However my selfish mom insisted on taking a shower first...something about smelling herself and not liking it. I ask you, is that fair? At least I did get my sunbath finally, but it was almost 1PM, and the sun was not as warm as we hoped so we only stayed out 20 minutes or so. Still got my two nutriberries though.

And now Mom is making one of her famous deep dish blueberry pies. They had blueberries on sale at the store yesterday, so here is the first pie of 2015. Mom had been craving one, so it is a good thing they showed up at the store! Who knows what she would have resorted to otherwise!

  Hi Teal'c
Well, neither Mom nor Dad liked the movie the 12 Monkeys, so they have decided not to watch the show. And they didn't like the way Helix was headed last season, so they are passing on that as well. Can't wait for Defiance to come back. Like Haven too.

Dad has both of his kidneys, but they were damaged by the chemo treatment for his bladder cancer. I imagine the results of either are about the same. Any illness creates kidney issues for our parront.

I am having a pretty good day, although I didn't get as much mommy time as usual this morning. Mom went back to bed after our breakfast and didn't wake up until it was time to go grocery shopping! Shameful! However I will admit the minute she got the groceries put away she came in to take me out for a sunbath. Just warm enough out there in the sun, but that is all it takes. And of course the two nutriberries doesn't hurt either. Mom always picks out the biggest ones, since they don't fit in to my foraging toy as well.

Then Mom and Dad went to Subway to use the gift card Mom got from someone at the gym. She got a chicken melt, and as usual shared it with moi. I liked the chicken, but why the heck did she put spinach and cucumbers on the darned thing? Yuck!

Don't forget tonight is the milonga. Have your resolution ready to share, and I will see you there!

  Hi Teal'c
and Elvis! Thanks for stopping by Elvis.

Isn't it weird how Dads will watch things with commercials when they have the movie on disk? Dad watches LOTR every time it is on and we have all three but never watch them. Whatever....

Well, Mom is almost back to 100% healthy...just a runny nose and cough now. Had a scare last night, because Dad thought he might have caught it-if not from Mom who was very careful, then from the twenty people at his work who have it. And when he catches anything his kidneys stop working which is major. Fortunately he woke up this morning without any sore throat (1st symptom) and feeling good again.

However we cannot say the same for poor Gloria the car. Her battery died yesterday, and Mom had to call AAA for a jump to get to the library. The battery is still under warranty being only 25 months old, so she is at the car doc's place right now getting a new one and having her electrical checked out to see if that is what ate the battery so soon. So Mom is stranded here with me (YAY!) and I am loving it. We had a chicken tamale with Spanish rice for lunch. Love the rice, but I let Mom eat the tamale. And since Mom can't pick up Gloria till 4PM, she won't even be going to the gym this evening. It's all about me!!!

And if you pop over to the Calendar Page or the Milonga Page #165848, you will see the details for this month's party which will be this Saturday. Hope to see you all there.

  Hi Teal'c
The original Stargate movie played on Sunday, so Dad watched it and Mom stopped by every so often for favorite scenes. She was still down with that bug and didn't want to be around Dad and give it to him!

Mom is feeling much better today. The sore throat is gone completely (that was the total worst!) and her cough is much less. Still got a stuffed up nose though, so Dad convinced her to pass on zumba today. He was concerned she might relapse. Fine by me, since it means more mommy time.

I am being very nippy today. Right now I am sitting on Mom's chair right next to her leg, and I keep reaching up to give her wrist little nips as she types. Now since they are not hard and don't really hurt, and it does mean I am leaving the antique dresser alone I am not headed to my room for time out....yet. Hopefully I will at least get my blogging done before I lose control and chomp!

Mom is still not feeling good, however although the symptoms are all still there they are less severe. Mom could have sworn her throat was bleeding last night it hurt so badly. Now it is just sore, and that nasty cough is not as bad either. Less Mom time than usual for me though, since she is spending most of her time sleeping. Hopefully she will be back to normal by tomorrow.

Mom's never heard of either Fargo (except the movie which she liked) or Manhattan. Which network were they on? She might check them out On Demand.

As you can see from my profile pic, I am busy supervising Mom at the computer. I will make sure she says just what I tell her, or I will have to type it myself!

Today has been pleasant so far. Mom spent the morning with me finishing up her book from the library. I do think it unfair that she won't let me chew on it, but at least she did let me read over her shoulder. Then we went outside for a nice long sunbath at 11:30 with temps at 77, and just came back inside for lunch. We had that Chicken Methi Malai that I have talked about before. The kidney beans are what I like, and I do enjoy eating out the soft middle and then spitting the empty skin on to Mom's lap or shoulder. I am sure she appreciates it as well.

It being Wednesday I will lose my mom to the gym this afternoon from 4-6, but that does mean I get to stay up later since she always spends an hour or so with me when she gets home. Unless I insist on going to bed, since it is dark outside after all.

  Hi Teal'c
Mom and Dad rented a movie yesterday because of the lack of TV shows to watch. They wanted to get Guardians of the Galaxy, because thinks that raccoon is really cute, but they were out of them at Redbox. So they got The Equalizer which was one of Dad's favorite shows way back when. It was pretty good, and they both enjoyed it. Now let's see what next week will bring.

BC is still being naughty. I have no aviary or avatar, and most everybirdy else seems to be in the same boat. Hopefully they will fix the server when the I5 people come back after the holiday tomorrow.

Meanwhile Mom took off for the gym after our morning play time, and then she was good enough to sit with me before her shower when she got home. Then I discover it was just so she could heat up my room, and then turn off my heater and turn on the one in bathroom! I was duped! After her shower we did share a nice lunch of ham and black-eyed peas though. And this time I ate some of both.

Then Dad worked on the bush outside my window because it had frost burn from the low temps earlier this week. Not enough to kill the bush, but those brown branches looked ugly. Of course, I had to try and attack him through the window. Imagine my disgust when he came over and banged on the glass! I whacked it good and hard with my beak to no avail; that glass just will not break! Rats, foiled again!

  Hi Teal'c
Yeah, Mom got the link your mom sent her. She is a big fan of Kili's, and she's been watching videos of her for years. She hadn't seen that one though. And you guessed it; Dad says why can't I do tricks like that.

I have no aviary or avatar today, and for a little while my profile pic was gone. At least it is back, but how very annoying! I know Kaji's mom, DJ, sent a message to I5 about the problem. However with it being a holiday weekend, we are probably looking at Monday before it is addressed.

Dad is trying to suck up to me with presents of tater chips, but since I won't eat anything while he is watching he has to give it to Mom to give to me. So it really didn't buy him any brownie points. And then just to make it really full-scale war, he offered me a pony tail ride.....for the price of a tail feather! How rude!

However after Mom and Dad went grocery shopping this morning, I got a nice visit with my mom. And then we shared a hot ham and Swiss cheese sandwich on rye for lunch. I just went for the ham which I pulled out of the sandwich, but as long as I get my ham I am a happy boy.

And now I am sitting on Mom's knee dictating my blogs. Wonder how long I can behave myself and stay here?

  Hi Teal'c

I have to say Mom and I are kind of glad to say good-bye to 2014. Hopefully 2015 will be a healthy year for Mom and Dad and all of our friends here on BC.

Mom was pretty sure there had to be more to the Ascension show, since they left so many loose ends dangling. She can't remember them ever introducing a new show like that. Usually it is either a mini-series or a weekly show, not both. Very odd. Totally agree with your mom about Helix, and the news on wrestling is very interesting. Hoping for a new show to come on. Never watched Z nation, since Mom can't handle zombies. Dad checked it out and said it was stupid.

Mom is home for all day, which I like a lot. She has black-eyed peas simmering in seasonings on the stove and a ham in the oven. Now I love both of those things, so I am sure she is cooking them for me. I might let her and Dad have some though.

  Hi Teal'c
Well, Mom and Dad watched the first segment of Ascension last night, and the ending of that part really caught them by surprise. They will watch part two tonight. Are you saying that is going to be a series after this? Mom is not sure she is going to watch Helix. She really didn't care for the way the first season ended. Not many good Syfy shows on anymore....sigh**

It is still very chilly here, and the high today is only in the 50s. So no sunbath, and none in sight anytime soon. In fact, on New Year's Eve day our high is predicted at 48! Mom doesn't remember it ever being that cold here during the day before, and the nights are in the 30s. Sure hope the orchards don't freeze, or our So Cal winter citrus crop will be a goner!

Mom made it to the gym this morning, in spite of the chilly weather. When she got out of her car to go in the gym, the wind picked up and she was really cold by the time she got in there. The sun was shining when she left two hours later, but it was still not very warm. Better than when she arrived though.

Dad was trimming the bushes in front of the house this afternoon, because the fichus is brushing the roof. It was only 3 feet tall when they planted it 22 years ago, and now it is a menace. However the real menace was my dad in MY yard! How dare he? And he added insult to injury by coming over and tapping on my window when I was screaming at him.

  Hi Teal'c
Well, Mom has recorded the entire Ascension series, but she and Dad won't get around to watching it until he is off work for the holidays which starts on Wednesday. I will go nuts having him around for 11 whole days, but Mom just says suck it up.

Well, it isn't warm enough outside for me to get a sunbath, but it is a little warmer than yesterday. Tomorrow and Tuesday are now the days that the weather geeks are saying will hit upper 70s. I sure hope they are not messing up again, because I would really like to get outside.

Mom did the heat up Kiddo's room so we can turn off the heater routine after getting home from the gym today. Then after her shower she came back in to turn my heater back on and read with me for a while. I am glad she is in the middle of a good book. That always means more time with me, and less time with Dad. Yay me!

Mom got a plate of homemade Christmas cookies from one of her zumba buddies at class this morning. They are very tasty, and she and Dad put a small dent in the treats. I did get to share one with Mom, and I gave my beaky approval.

Meanwhile I am enjoying my Mom time by giving her a dental exam. I like to check her teeth and make sure they are all there. Or maybe I am trying to find her beak! I can still dictate blogs while playing dentist though, and then there is the fun of climbing up and down Mom's body. No biting again today, so I am enjoying full privileges.

  Hi Teal'c
Well, Mom is enjoying Constantine, but other than that it looks like a desert until January. However she is recording Ascension and will watch it this weekend with Dad. For sure Syfy will replay it a dozen times or so, and we'll let you know if it is any good.

Mom is once again fighting to settle a bill between the insurance company and the hospital; this time it is for the surgery she had done in August and the bill is $100,000!!! She never has a problem with any other hospital than this one, and she will definitely never go there again. All the problems are them. Their billing dept. is in Las Vegas, so Mom thinks they are all off gambling instead of doing their job. Mom is on hold with Blue Cross right now trying to straighten it out since her conversation with the hospital billing person was basically useless.

Other than that I am waiting for my mom time. Since I cannot be around the phone without attacking it, I am in my room till she is done. As you probably guessed she is on long term hold right now. Ah, he came back and it looks like things might be moving along! Hallelujah. Now it is wait and see time.....again!

So now I am on Mom's knee dictating my blog, so it should be much more interesting. Hmmm, I can't think of anything to tell you. Well, it is basketball practice today, so that will be fun on the BC Laker's page. If you aren't on the team, come watch us!

  Hi Teal'c
Did your mom watch the mid-season finale of Haven. My folks watched the DVR of it last night, and neither one of them saw that coming. Wonder what happens next?

Well, it is chilly here again today with temps in the 60s, so no sunbath for me. I suspect it will be at least another week or two before I get outside again. The next ten days are all showing in the 60s with occasional rain showers. Knock on wood, but maybe the drought is finally over???? We have been known to have temps in the 80s for Christmas though, so who knows what will come? The furnace actually came on in the middle of the night last night for the first time this winter, so that means it got below 65 in the house. Of course, my room is always warmer, because I have my own heater, but the rest of the house got cold last night too!

Mom and I shared the other half of her burrito for lunch today, and I sure enjoyed it. I pulled out a pinto bean and left nothing but the skin (neatly deposited on Mom's chest). The rice is very tasty as well, and I nibbled a bit of tortilla. I must say burritos are fine birdy fare.

Dad can't mow the lawn, because it is still a little too soft from the rain on Friday. I don't think he really minds though, and I certainly am glad he is not in my front yard. I really scream when he is out there, and I can't get through the window to bite him.

  Hi Teal'c
You have to understand that my dad is my competition for Mom's affections! Actually I just do not like anyone but Mom, and I especially dislike men. I have to admit Dad really does his best to be nice and bring me treats, but then he says things like "parrot stew" and spoils it all.

If your mom decides to check out Constantine, I recommend she start from the first one via on demand. That will give her the back story.

Well, a very nice sunbath today, indeed! I had just taken a bath in my water bowl, so it was very nice to get outside in the warm sun to dry off. And it was very warm. Didn't have to move the carrier to catch rays at all; the clouds finally burned off. No wonder since it hit 76 today, and it is supposed to make it to 77 tomorrow. Very nice indeed.

Mom and I had another wrap for lunch today. I decided I preferred to eat what she had in her mouth to biting pieces off the wrap. I am a little concerned that I may have gotten some spinach included, but a bird's gotta do what a bird's gotta do.

Now I am sitting on my mom's knee dictating. I wonder if I can behave for the entire time it takes to get them done?

  Hi Teal'c
Mom watches and really enjoys Forever. Dad says he is not interested. Don't know about the movie Constantine, but the TV show is about a guy named John Constantine who is British and practices magic. He is trying to help stop Hell Rising one evil creature per week.

Well, I got another sunbath today. Mom took me outside as soon as she got home from the gym to make sure there was still sun (it was 75 degrees), and it is a good thing she did. We only managed 25 minutes and that was with moving my carrier to follow the sun. Then the clouds rolled in and the temp dropped enough Mom took me back inside. That's OK, the vet said anything 20 minutes or more was good. And I did get two big, fat nutriberries.

Then Mom took her shower, but as soon as she was done she made us a wrap from the stuff they bought at the Valley Produce Mkt and Deli yesterday: roast beef, Swiss cheese and fresh spinach in a home made tortilla (from the other deli). Now I just pulled out some beef and nibbled at the tortilla, even though Mom tried her best to get me to eat the spinach. She needs that green stuff, I will just stick with my sugar snap peas.

And now I am sitting on her knee while I dictate my blogs, even though Dad is home. He is playing with his rocks in the garage, and he knows to stay out of the computer room. I will tear his face off if he tries to horn in on my mom time!!!

  Hi Teal'c
Hey, have your parents been watching that new show Constantine? It is pretty good. And TNT is starting a series based on their movies about The Librarian. Don't know if you saw any of those, but they are kind of a take off on Indiana Jones. That starts this Sunday.

Well, although the rain has stopped for today, we got 1.2" from this storm, and adding in Sunday's rain we are at 1.6" for the week. We are actually at 98% of normal for the season now, and hopefully this means the drought is coming to an end (knock on wood). However it is going to take more than normal rainfall to catch things back up. Most of the lakes and reservoirs were at 1/3 capacity in September.

However this means no sunbath today, and although it is supposed to be up to 70 tomorrow, Mom is keeping a wait and see attitude about it. The good side of the cooler weather as far as I am concerned, is that it's delaying my trip to the groomer for a nail trim. Mom doesn't want to take me out in the cold. I always look for that silver lining!

I had the last of my popcorn yesterday, but there was banana in my breakfast today. Mom had some on her cereal which she shared with me. Funny, I like the banana in my bowl, but not in her cereal. Happy to take a cheerio (peanut butter flavor, yum!) out of Mom's mouth though.

  Hi Teal'c
Mom thinks your mom and dad might want to rent the DVD of the new X-Men movie. She liked it more than Dad did, but then she has a crush on Hugh Jackman, and he has a major role in this one.

Well, Mom was able to change my profile pic to a Christmas one today, so hopefully the big pic problem has been fixed by BC. I know it has been annoying for many of my birdy buddies.

Dad finally had to light the pilot on our furnace this past weekend, and Mom actually has had it on for a bit today. It is the chilliest it has been yet this season with a high today of 63. Mom cleaned out the humidifier and sterilized it, because although we don't need it with the rain coming down, we will when it is done and the heater is running. The one in my room is going a lot more now to keep it at 71 degrees in there.

It is raining steadily here, and it has been since early this morning. We are hoping this storm will drop an inch or more, and since it is coming down pretty gently it should soak in rather than run off. Mom went to the gym at noon for her make up session with her trainer, and she was very chilled when she got there. Becky, her trainer, took care of that pretty quick. Her jacket came off on the 2nd set of exercises, and she was way warmed up by the time they were done. No zumba today though, because the only slot Becky had was at the same time as zumba. She can't even go for a walk for cardio, because of the rain. She hates the tread mill, so cardio will have to wait for zumba tomorrow.

I am still being very cranky. I nipped Mom a couple of times while she was making our lunch, although it wasn't a real bite. She warned me that broken skin would mean a time out, and I could tell she was serious. Guess I had better keep my beak to myself!

  Hi Teal'c
Well, I have good news and bad news today, and the funny part is that it's the same news! It is raining here (surprise!) so no sunbath for sure, but it is raining here so Mom isn't going to go to zumba....more mom time for me. And that is especially good since she and Dad are going to make popcorn and watch the other movie they rented yesterday for her birthday. Since I can't behave in the same room with Dad, I am excluded. But Mom will be available sooner without going to the gym. And I will get some of that popcorn before they put the butter and salt on it.

I hope everybirdy had a wonderful time at the milonga last night. I sure did, and the surprise come from behind win by the Indians was greyt for me, and the Pilgrims sure don't need to feel badly because they played super. Thanks for your pep talk to the defensive unit in the 4th quarter; I really think it helped turn things around. It was a lot of fun afterwards too with Lizzie's feast and Sam's music. A good night all around I think. Thank you Taz, Jake, RaneBeau and Miss Ruby for all your help. And how about those cheerleaders?!!

  Hi Teal'c and the entire Stark family & flock!

Just a quick blog to wish you and yours a very happy holiday. Whether your table is loaded down with a turkey, or you are having a duck like we are at my house, may your meal be filled with thanks and happiness.

I am thankful for the wonderful sunbath I had this morning. It is 88 degrees here now, and was a lovely low 80s when we went outside at 10:30. Dad said to tell everybirdy he had to take his shirt off, when he went outside to work on the yard. I wish I could send some of our sunshine to those of you who are shivering under winter weather. At least let your hearts be warm with love and laughter today and it will feel like Spring!

Kiddo and family

  Hi Teal'c
Mom looked at her recipe file on the puter to see if she had ever written down the jambalaya, but she hadn't. she hasn't really got a recipe, but she will do her best to write one out for your mom.

I am not getting outside for a sunbath today, even though it is just about warm enough. The problem is me! My mom was in my room drinking hot tea from her travel mug for a headache, and I decided I didn't like the mug....and I attacked her hand that was holding it. Yep, another nasty bite, and I am now in my room in time out. I know I have been bad, because I am being very quiet. Mom didn't really yell at me, but she did say Good-bye pretty loud and three times! Haven't seen her since except for lunch. I behaved then, so why am I still a bad boy?

I did get a sunbath yesterday, although since I couldn't blog (thanks a lot, BC) I couldn't tell anybirdy about it. Today is trash day with the big trucks coming around, so I might not have gone outside anyway. Those trucks really scare me. And it is pretty windy here even if it is 75 degrees out.

I may not be blogging tomorrow, because my mom has to drive her friend down to court for an appeal on a disability hearing. If she gets home in time though, I will still be able to blog. We shall see.

Don't forget to vote for Miss Ruby #35469, there are only a few more days to vote!

  Hi Teal'c
Well, no sunbath today, since the projected high is 68 degrees. Mom got home from the gym a little after noon and insisted on taking a shower before coming in to see me. I guess I showed her, because when she came in my room at 12:30 I was soaking wet from the bath I had taken in my water bowl! So we were both squeaky clean.

We had jambalaya again for lunch. Not only did Mom make a big batch, but since she eats such little portions these days it is lasting longer. I love it, so it's fine by me. I was still wet, so Mom stayed in my room with the heater going and read till I was dry.

And now we are blogging, and I am roaming all over the desk. I suspect that is not going over so well with my mom, because she keeps grabbing me and putting me in her lap. She doesn't mind it when I climb to her shoulder till I start trying to put food in her mouth. I am giving her love offerings; why can't she get that?

  Hi Teal'c
Well, since you already have your helmet, I feel really bad but the teams were all picked over a week ago. Your darned Mom shouldn't have gone away. How about I put you on as defensive coordinator, and you can have Moggie ask Taz about the same position? Does that work for you?

Well, Mom had her endoscopy yesterday, and since it was a just a follow-up to the surgery she had in August to make sure all was well in her tummy she wasn't worried. They had a small issue with the fact that when I bit my mom over the Ensure instead of lunch, it was right where they would normally put the IV. So it went into her forearm, but the nurse was very good and it really didn't hurt much at all. Not only did the procedure go well, but her ulcer is finally gone too! So no more acid reflux, and nor more ulcer. She's a happy camper....except she's still not allowed to take Excedrin. Boohoo!

After she got home from the hospital yesterday, she took a short nap to sleep off the drugs and then the rest of the day was mine! And although she didn't feel much like eating, we did share a protein/oatmeal cookie. Yum! Her dinner was just that stupid Ensure again, so I never even saw the bottle.

Now today is cloudy and cool here, so I will not be getting outside at all. Mom is wearing sweats and a fleece and her warm bedroom slippers. And my heater is staying on all day. At least I have plenty of Mom time, so I can't really complain.

Look at YOU! Hubba hubba! I'[m so glad you had a good celebration. It seems mom is not motivated to swim on the cruise because of her knee? Tell her she will never see these people again, who cares about the knee swelling?
Mom and Aunt Jane loved Parrot Palooza, though we don't think Aunt Jane will do it again, because it's such a long trip for her.
Today is a pretty lazy day for all of us. Mom got her nails done, then came home to be with us. She carried in the African violets a while back because of the weather, so today she's closing the fountain, bringing in the rest of the house plants, and maybe planting the amaryllis and paper whites her friend left for her. There is still a Boston fern outside, as well as a succulent dish garden. We hope they have both survived the chilly nights lately. If not, well, there's always the nursery next year.
I hope you are having a good day today, and getting lots of sun, cuddles, and kisses. Hugs, Falco

So sorry to miss your mom at the Palooza. I was looking forward to meeting her. She was the one that told me about the Palooza. I was going to blog moms from the area to see who was going but then BC shut down for that whole week. Hopefully, we will be able to meet next year.

Have a good week!! Leaving a vote for you!
