"Ha-Ho" to you, Folger!

Hope this note finds you well.
Slightly cooler and more comfortable here in Buffalo, NY the past couple of days.
It should be nice the rest of the week.

Tuesday 4 of Dad's friends saw the movie "TRAINWRECK". Rude but funny.

Wednesday evening, a friend hosted a BluRay Night and 3 friends watched:
"RIFIFI" (1955 Directed by Jules Dassin) - the greatest heist film ever made.

Thursday evening, Dad went with five friends to see a movie in the Tom Hanks Summer Movie Festival at the old Riviera Theater. The feature:
"A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN" (1992, Dir: Penny Marshall) . Dad had never seen it before.
The six of them enjoyed the movie, popcorn and a great evening together.

Polly mentioned something about being scared of a broom or mop. For some reason, I always shriek when Dad tries cleaning with a broom or mop. I don't know why - but they set off my Conure Alarm.

Happy Saturday.

Nice in Buffalo this weekend, although next week will be hot n muggy again.

I had a bout of night terrors last night - and kept "flittering" off my perch.
Daddy tried to calm me down but at first I "flittered" out of his hands.
Finally he got me - took me into his room and calmed me down.
-
I rarely get these, but it's scary for Dad and I both when it happens.

This morning I am back to my feisty self.

Cooler for a couple of days, but the heat and the muggies promise to return for most of next week.

on Tuesday Night Dad and Uncle Geno went to a Special Preview of the Robin Williams film,
"BOULEVARD". Afterwards they broadcast a Q & A with the director and a few cast members.
.
The film was a serious role {Dad prefers a serious Robin Williams]. A small film - sad, but well made. it will never be a big box-office hit, but it does show off Williams' talent.

Good simple story - good acting. Kinda fun on a rainy Saturday afternoon.

Happy Friday. A beautiful day here today - sadly it's supposed to be cold and heavy pouring rains all weekend.

Dad got the toilet fixed (silly flimsy workings never hold up very long) and all is well.
--
Dad and friends went to a local little theater last night to see a production of the musical "THE WILD PARTY". A fabulous show presented by a local theater group. They had front-row seats so it was like they were in the middle of the wild party itself. Dad behaved himself and didn't get up to sing and dance. A fun night at the theater.

On Tuesday Dad was gone a good deal of the day, taking friends across town to the doctors.
Afterwards they all went to the pancake house for food.
--
In the afternoon, Dad joined a couple friends to see the film "LOVE AND MERCY" about Brian Wilson.
Bad rains for the drive and doctor visits, then bright sunshine when they were inside for the movie - isn't that the way they say it goes.

Dad and Uncle Geno were here in the evening, so I did get some time with both of them.

Hi, Folger --
Saturday was the start of Dad's favorite weekend of the year -
The Allentown Art Festival -this was the 58th year for this huge outdoor festival of arts, crafts and food along the streets of the Allentown District in Buffalo, NY. Artists come from all over to be in this prestigious event.
Besides art, of course there is food, crowds, babies in strollers, dogs on leashes and the joy of Summer finally coming to the Buffalo area.
--
Nothing particular for birds, but the weekend gets Dad in good spirits, which is always nice.

A big "Ha-Ho" to you and your family.
Have a great day. ~Wings Up~

Friday afternoon, I had my "well-birdie" check-up with the Avian Vet [Dr Wade].
The Specializied Care office is about a 40 minute drive. Dad drove and Uncle Geno kept me company in the back seat. My Travel Cage had carrots and pellets and toys.
--
Our usual room in the Doctor's Offices was taken, so we were put into the Rabbit Room - yikes - with photos and books about bunnies and such.
--
All is well.
The pain in the hindquarters is a new feather coming in right by the preen gland. No swelling, no infection - just a little discomfort.
--
Dr. says it's probably going to be fine in a week or so - just watch and make sure all is well.

Some have asked about my photo. In this photo I am on a birdie-dish having a treat:
"Flitzer Coffee" A touch of coffee with a drop of milk and whipped cream. It is a favorite treat.
The Soy Sauce behind me is simply where Dad keeps it, as he uses Soy instead of Salt when he is cooking.

Monday evening, Dad shared a favorite movie on DVD "AFTER HOURS" (1985 directed by Martin Scorsese). It's a very "different" dark comedy.

At Daddy's request, one of the stops was 'Birds Unlimited' - a wonderful huge bird store.
[although Dad did let a beautiful turquoise green-cheek flirt with him, he knows that I'm the Bird, and always comes home to me]

Uncle Jim, Uncle JJ and Uncle Geno all bought me something special - as well as Dad.

We had a funny moment this morning. I stepped up on Dad's hand and he was taking me to my morning poop place when...
Dad sneezed.
It scared me - so I flew off his hand and across the room - where I pooped in a "wrong" place.

Hey buddy!

Not much new happening here. The weather is much improved, though. Dad might be able to take me outside pretty soon. He does not have to worry about me flying away because I can't. I love to walk around under some pine trees and pick up things that I find. Dad stays right beside me. We have hawks on occasion in the yard and Dad keeps an eagle eye out for them.

Dante is still walking all over the top of my cage. Dad put a sheet and blanket on the top because I like to try grabbing Dante's feet. Hey! It IS my territory! Silly bird!

Cookie still gets most of the attention, in my opinion. Just because he isn't inclined to bite and because he is so small. At least I get to go outside.

Dad and Mom like to watch tv shows when Mom gets home from work. They watch something called Netflix. A show called Glee. People sing on that show but not as well as I can, though. At least that is MY opinion.

Bye!

HaHo

Seedless grapes today - hurray, a toy and a food in one.
Dad has broken up some of the huge Roudybush pellets, but also leaving some of the big ones -he's trying to find out if I'll eat them - so far the answer is "no"....but I'm thinking about it.
