My bird was up for adoption at the pet store. I was told he was injured so they could not sell him. They were giving him to someone that would give him a good home. When I saw him, I knew he needed to come home with me. Chipper is doing great now!

Hey there Miss Chipper! I'm BAAACCKK!!! I hope not like a bad penny! Thanks for all the nice cards, calls, prayers & wellness thoughts for my Mom. She thought she'd never shake that lupus/RA flare. It didn't help at all because of that infected tooth. Any infection or illness, she's to stop taking the RA medicine. She's to leave it out of her medication taking until 2 weeks after the antibiotic in finished. That ended up being 3 weeks of no medicine to keep that RA in check. Once she started it up again, that's when she thought she should be getting better, instead she felt worse. That's because that kind of medicine has to "build up" to be effective in warding off the RA symptoms. She told me her hair even hurt! She couldn't even get out of bed some days. But she would try everyday. When she really felt terrible it was because her fever was so high. It would swing back & forth between 101 & 102. She had called her doctor about that & he was wondering if the tooth problem had come back. So, she had to be run up to the dentist's office just to rule that out. Thank goodness, it was all okay. Mom sure didn't want anymore drilling for China going on in her mouth again. It was just healing up nicely. Anyway, Mom has heard that somethings that are just the run of the mill everyday things that humans will go through, that it might be a bit harder for her because of her illnesses. This is the first significant trouncing she has taken from dental work. Her immune system is run by the 3 Stooges & she's quite sure of it! Things it's suppose to do, it does the opposite of it or goes overboard doing too much. Mom's glad it's over with & is now trying to "catch up". She went to her email & it was a thousand plus emails in there. She almost went back to bed seeing that many! I had to coax her out with me saying cutie things to her like, "come have a birdy day!" and also, "I want some toast!" I thought expressing my needs would kick start the "Mom instinct" in her to help her along. It's worked some.

Well, I think I better ask for some "treats" before it gets too close to dinner time.

Can't wait for this Saturday! Piggy races are going to be so awesome! Good luck to all who are riding in that race! Hugs, SamIAm

  Day 27--Bring it on Bart!
Well, howdy all, Chuey here with our Cattle Drive Update. We made this side of San Saba at Pegleg Crossing by mid-afternoon, but he herds were weary from the quick pace, so we pitched camp early and set about puttin' guards on watch. We'd gotten word back from Sky regardin what they'd been findin' out from thoise Rustlers and Black Bart. As told by Sky, Jenny Holiday Earp Hickok took to visitin again;
"..I want to speak to my old friend alone for a moment!" Jen sits tall in her saddle and rides to meet up with Mr Bart! The two old friends shake wings and Jen says "back off Blackie, let my friends & herd pass peacefully!" Not liking that, Bart slaps leather but Jen pulls hers first, and all of a sudden, Bart is looking down the bore of Jenny's deadly 44! JL holsters her weapon, and says,"ride away, we are even friend" with a quick shoulder bump, the two return to their own people! Jen is under orders not to cause any disturbance and is waiting furthers orders from Trail Boss Ms Chuey."
Chuey rubs her chin, shakin her head, " Sky, Go pick out a dozen birds and post them around Bart's camp, have' em on the ready. We're fixin' to have us a shoot-out!"
Jedi rides over to speak with Chuey, "Boss, I brought you some Cheyenne scouts from my family at the rez. They will watch over us and make sure all of us are safe and not harmed. They will be watching over us with bows and arrows ready !" Chuey looked around, then Jedi pointed to the distant hills, Lifting his Arm, Chuey saw two scouts raise Bows high over their heads. "Thanks pardner, we're well prepared"
Jenny rode away to rejoin Chyna watchin from a distance. "He ain't gonna let this be." Chyna grinned knowin' he was goin' ride his band of rustlers into a mess of trouble."

" Ok boyz, They think they have us scared, Well, we'll be seein' to that" Bart laughs his wicked laughter echoing off the hills and rocks. " get yourselves ready, we're goin' callin" Bart laughs again louder, evil and menacing. His gang of mangy rustlers grin, gettin into their boss's merriment. "Yes sir ye, we'll show'em " twitch says as he saddles up his nag. Mountin up, they ride off to collect themselves a herd of long-horns. Arriving in the rocky brush by the river, they wait for their payday to arrive from down the trail.
" Boss, Boss, we'er all set." Pookie says, riding past to join the point riders out front carryin' their long-riffles across their saddles, Panther, tips his hat and nods, he's ready and waitin' for the show to begin. Cori, Sugar and Falco hold the herd into a straight line for the River ahead, swing-ridin' all the while keepin' eyes on the trail and hills close by. Sweetpepper, with Sweetie and Kacey carry newborn calves on their saddles, too young for the quickened pace of the herd."

  Hi Chipper
This morning mom got the letters to the tax folks off in the mail. She sent 2, one for the municipal tax and one for the school tax, and both went certified, so she'll have a record of them being collected. She is hoping that will lead to a quick refund, but we all think she's having a pipe dream. After mailing the letters, she went to 4 stores before she found the right vitamins for her eyes that the retina people told her to take. You would think they'd be easier to find than that.
Now she's home, the house is clean, and she isn't going back outside until the pool opens at 3:30, so she's ours for the day. It's another beautiful summer day here, hope you are having the same. Get lots of love today! Hugs, Falco

  Hi Chipper
It's Alex.
Yesterday was kind of a non-work day. Dad just tidied things up and mom watched TV. Dad did say that he needs to take the carpet machine and re-rinse the bedroom carpet. He didn't get all the shampoo out of it and it's kind of like walking on dried grass.
Later in the day, dad's friend, Bob came over and they all went to the new little fish restaurant that mom and dad discovered. Then Dad and Bob sat and talked about the old days when they were young. Funny thing, they never talked about their younger days during the civil war. I'm sure they were both there.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 95 and a low of 69. Sounds like a good day for the movies. But we don't know yet.
Hope your day was fun.

Well, my awesome claws are gone ! And although I didn't get the groomer - I got mom on the knuckle real good ! har har har - let that be a reminder to her of how much I dislike having pedicures ! Now, I'm free till Nov. 11, which is my annual check-up. Veteran's Day - mom is off, Dr. Hess is not ! There must be more bird owners in my area - my vet (owner of Veterinary Center for Birds) just hired a third avian specialist ! ! !

One more hot one to get through today and then temperatures are supposed to moderate back to the low 80's. Mom gets her feathers colored and cut today and tomorrow daddy's car goes in for inspection - lots to do before school starts next week !

  Hi Chipper... TiPaul here
mom and Dad are taking advantage of the good weather, to get the two decks painted. They were sanded back in June, an every time they decided it would be good to paint, there was rain in the forecast the following day. Last week, Mom got one deck done after they both worked on the banisters and railings. Today Dad did the other deck and each one of them worked on the stairs to each deck. Thank goodness there are still two other entrances to our home. LOL Nether of them require any work. This is the first coat. If the weather holds out, the second coat will be done early next week. It is fun to watch though. Mom lines the cages up, and we can see them working and tell them if they missed a spot. Mom takes birdy breaks and comes in to see us, and gives us treats, and she also talks to us from outside. Thanks for stopping by... I am off to perch soon, after I finish my blogs. I hope they work. Things are a bit rough for Mom with this computer. Hugs from TiPaul

In case you didn’t get cake and ice cream or any other foods from my hatchday yesterday there is plenty left so just help your self. Sunday evening mom and dad went to see the Duquesne University Tamburitzans perform. They both enjoyed it a lot. The singing and dancing was from the European countries so mom had no idea what the words were but dad knew a few of the words. Mom said it sounded very pretty any way and dad agreed. The costumes were so colorful and added to the show as well. By the time the parronts got home I was sound asleep but I did come out to give mom a kiss good night and then mom covered me up and I soon fell back to sleep again. “If your alone, I’ll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I’ll be your shoulder. If you want a hug I’ll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I’ll be your smile. But anytime you need a friend, I’ll just be me.

  Day 26- troubles comin our way
Howdy cow-wranglers, Chuey here with today's Cattle Drive Update. We rode double watches during the night to keep an eye open for our friend Black Bart. We were waitin' for him and his raggedy band of vultures to swoop down on our herd and run' em off in the middle of the night, but all was quiet. Too quiet!
"Boss," Polly whispers " what' d ya think he's up too?"
"Well, ain't too sure. He's been trailin' us since we headed out, ain't sure at all" I answered, not sure what to say beyond that.
" JL and Sky sent back word through Kiddo and Spot that Black Bart had hankered down over yonder by Llano. They been talkin' real quiet-like, makin plans" Jedi reports. I nod, and give Cutter his head as we make one round of the herd to update the others on what I just learned.
We kept the herd close-up and movin' pretty steady through the mornin' and by mid-day we'd already covered six miles. I'd just set down to some hot vittles when Chyna came gallopin' in, stoppin in a cloud of dust and horse sweat. " the rustlers are saddled up and movin to the rocks west of Beef Trail Crossin'. Jenny-Lynn and Sky are followin' 'em so they don't make a slip on us and get us by surprise. "
Chyna hopped off Dyna-Dancer, and Rio grabbed the lead and walked her to the corral, stripin' her saddle off and rubbin' her down good. BonBon ropes a silver dapple and throws the saddle over his muscular back, tightenin' the straps good, and leads him over to where Chyna is eatin' a quick bowl of stew before headin' back to join up with JL and Sky.
"tell them two not to get gun-crazy too soon, we wanta teach Bart a lesson 'bout his thieving' ways"
I grabbed up Cutters reins, as I sprung onto his back, given him a slap on the shoulder we were off on a gallop to warn the point riders to b e ready for the "party"
"Sky, look" Jenny-Lynn points out the hoof prints of two new riders crossin' those of Black Bart and his band of rustlers." Sky leans over the shoulder of his horse Chief and studies them for a minute.
"Yep, looks that way" Sky clicks to Cutter and they move out followin' the new set of tracks for a spell to see who it is that has joined the rustlers. They didn't have to ride long before they spied the gang, settled down in the brush, with a smoke-less fire heatin' a pot of grub. Black Bart was in deep conversation with the two new comers, while the others kept a watch for the herd on the trail. It was here, hidden by the rocks and brush that Chyna caught up with them. She had brought them food from the dragon-wagon and they ate it in silence as they kept watch on their friends below .
Suddenly, the camp was alive with activity as the rustlers caught up their horses, and silently packed up their belongin's. " Ok boys, they're gonna be here in a few hours, lets get us ready, "SLIM, you and Twitch get over to the rock corral and make sure that the herd can't escape when the rest of us drive them in there."

Happy Birthday to Mother Theresa, may she rest in sainted peace. She sure brought about change in her ministry.
Today mom had a lot of errands to run before blogging, and she still isn't really done. She took the dogs to the new groomer, and they look and smell divine now! She also had to get more blankets and stuffed animals for the squirrels, pick up some wild bird seeds, go to the grocery and buy fresh veggies and fruits for us. By the time she got that done, it was time to feed the squirrel babies, so she came home and did that, then the groomer called, so she went to pick up the girls.
Later she is going to the pool, then hoping to find the vitamins she needs for her eyes, going to Aunt Gin's house to make a copy of her property assessment for the local tax office. These folks are willing enough to send out statements when they get their assessments from the county, but not willing to accept that the house has been reassessed, even though we know the county sent them a statement. They want mom to send a statement too, so she can get a refund. Whatever, though, she'll do it.
We may be in lockdown longer than normal today, but we know she'll be back to clean cages and spend at least a little time with us tonight. Hope you are having a good day, getting lots of sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

Notice is did not say GOOD morning ! Today is a day of DOOM (aka as groom). Why do mom and dad complain about a few scratches on their arms ! They are signs of my love ! Anyway, that groomer better be ready, cause I spent the afternoon yesterday sharpening my beak !

At least it's supposed to be a nice day for traveling . . . then later this afternoon some friends are coming over to visit. Mom hopes I'll be sociable cause usually I get very moody and angry at her on days of doom . . . The only good thing about the whole ordeal is I get my rope toys back ! Mom and dad have been worried about my toenails getting caught on them.

Hope you have a better day than me ! love Cookie

This morning we had 74 degrees and cloudy. Then around 11am the t-storm came and we were still at 74 degrees. I gave up on patio time. But, at 3:30pm ... the sun came out and it was SUMMER AND 80 degrees! I quickly put on my tube top, shorts, sunglasses and flip flops ... I was ready! Out to the patio I went with mom ...AHHHH SUMMER! It lasted a little over an hour ... a short but lovely summer.

Another reason to love bees: they might be able to help us fight cancer.

While venom isn’t usually known as a friendly thing, new research shows that venom from bees, snakes and scorpions could potentially be used to fight certain forms of cancer. While you wouldn’t go and inject someone with a dose of venom, which could have lethal effects, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign found that if they isolated specific proteins in the venom, these could be used in a safe way to block tumor growth.

“We have safely used venom toxins in tiny nanometer-sized particles to treat breast cancer and melanoma cells in the laboratory,” study author Dipanjan Pan of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, said in a statement. “These particles, which are camouflaged from the immune system, take the toxin directly to the cancer cells, sparing normal tissue.”

Previous studies have shown the potential power of venom, but because of the potentially very dangerous side effects of venom injection — damage to nerve cells, for example — that power couldn’t be properly harnessed.
The toxins in question are peptide toxins. The researchers made a synthetic version in the lab, then injected it into the tiny nanoparticles. “The peptide toxins we made are so tightly packed within the nanoparticle that they don’t leach out when exposed to the bloodstream and cause side effects

When the nanoparticles with the toxins attach to a cancer cell they can either slow down or stop the cancer cell growth, which can ultimately stop a cancer from spreading. what we are interested in are the cells responsible for metastasizing and having the cancer cells grow back,If we can target better using this technique, we potentially have a better cancer treatment.”

Now that they’ve figured out how to synthesize venom and put it in nanoparticles, the next step is to test it out on humans, in the next three to five years.

  Hi Chipper
Thanks for the hatchday wishes! Please come in and join me for a hatch day party and some cake and ice cream. There is lots of food so load up your plate. Its no fun with out friends like you to join me in celebration. Its hard to believe I am 8 years old already and sure am glad I have friends (and family) like you to share it with. Mom says the time went so fast and she loves me 8 times more then when we first met but that is hard to believe cause mom loves me a whole lot. “If your alone, I’ll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I’ll be your shoulder. If you want a hug I’ll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I’ll be your smile. But anytime you need a friend, I’ll just be me. Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Come visit me, Gus --Chi chi ♥ RIP & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  Day 25--Troubles are a brewin'
Howdy pardners, Chuey here with today's Cattle Trail Update. We had ourselves a restful, peaceful night. The watches went smooth as silk, and not one cow was inclined to stir up any troubles. We filled up on a breakfast of hot biscuits and gravy, bacon, eggs, and some flap-jacks. What a meal that Lizzie, Kaji and Mikey dish out. Could get used to this mighty easy.
As the point riders moved out, aand the dawgies fell into place the mornin' sun was just peakin' over the eastern horizon. I decided to take Baxter and Little Peep with me and scout out ahead a ways for good grazin for the noon stop-over. We'd rode like-wise to four miles when somethin' shiny in the distance caught my eye. We pulled up under the shade of a tree as I watched for a spell. "HHMMMM? Looks like we're 'bout to get us some company" I sat still and watched longer and ate my apple with Baxter and L'il Peep. "Yep! We best be headin' back to the herd, wanta make sure we got the welcome mat out"
By the time we rejoined the herd they were two miles shy of were I'd saw the sun bouncin' off something in the distance. Somethin' like the barrel of a gun!"
"Jenny_lynn, Chyna, Sky, I need ya to ride over towards the west some, cut back at Beef Trail Crossin' . I think we're about to have us some fun."
Sky and the others rode off at a gallop. Pistols were carried in Holsters worn in varies manners. A multitude of holster styles existed and each was made for a specific need. Rifles were carried in hand or in scabbards attached to the saddle or wagon. 'Cowbirds' carried their pistols as tools and kept them in a readily available condition. Most cowbirds were good to excellent marksbirds, relying on their guns to stay alive on the trails.
"We're in for some fancy shootin' cowboys and girls, best ya all get your side-arms at the ready." I rode from wrangler to wrangler. A tension spread swiftly through the group, as we pushed the herd along the trail, gettin' them to pick up a l'il speed.
"BOSS, you sure we can't handle Black Bart?" Zippy asked nervous of the possible outcome
"There's but five or six of 'em against all us, we'll lickin' right good and dandy Zippy!"
Jenny-Lynn, Sky and Chyna had made record time to Beef Trail Crossin, and were doublin back to come up behind them thievin' feather-lice infected rustlers. They ground hitched their horses and creep up nice and slow until they had them in their sights. "Think we might as well blast'em now? " JL asked eager for a good fight.
"Not yet, let's have some fun first" Chyna whispers softly
Sky took a small stone and tossed it far to the left. The rustlers wiped round as if a Ghost had touched ' em." What was that boss?"
"Ain't nuthin' but a chipmunk or the likes of it." Black Bart watched as in the distance the dust cloud appeared, " herds acomin' get ready lads"
