  Flitzer Friday
Happy Friday, Ha-Ho!
- Cold and Icy here in Buffalo. it looks like we will have a 'White Christmas'...anyone surprised?
--
Did you know how I got my name? "Flitzer" is German for "to streak or fly very fast". It's used for cars and planes.
My Dad loved a little roller-coaster called "The Flitzer" at Crystal Beach Amusement Park, and I am named for that coaster.
There are times Dad wishes he named me "Sit Still" -HA! ~Wings Up~

Come visit me, Flitzer.

  Sunday Flitzer
I have a silly Dad. I tried to gently tell him all week that the 13th was our Anniversary, but he kept thinking it was the 14th.

Dec 13th, 2008 I came to live with him and we started this crazy time together. He's not the smarted human, but we laugh together and love a lot. I guess I've got a good life here.
Happy 6th Anniversary. ~Wings Up~

Come visit me, Flitzer.

  Snowy Flitzer Thursday
Here comes the snow again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion
I want to walk in the open wind
I want to talk like lovers do
I want to dive into your ocean
Is it snowing with you
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Why Dad wants to live in this 'Winter Wonderland' of Buffalo, NY I'll never know.
I guess he just needs more warm birdie-hugs. ~Wings Up~

  Hey - it's Flitzer
It's Monday again.

Hello, Folger. You fell again? You really have to modify those new dance steps!
Daddies seek the wise spiders when they need help solving things. Hope your Dad can come get help with a new cage for you.
Daddies are silly - but their love is true and beautiful.

Have a good day - and please go gentle on that dancing.

  Hello from Buffalo
Hello, Folger, Dear Friend. Thank you for your note.
Yes, i am a clumsy bird and take a fall once in a while. it stuns me for a second, but I'm rarely hurt. I do leave a small "poop" behind in the spot I fell. -lol- I don't know - it's just what I do.
--
My Daddy frets over me a lot. He wants to be a good "birdie daddy", but sometimes he's just silly.
--
BTW: I go by different names too. "Flitzer", "King Flit-Flit", "My Little Love"...on and on.

When Daddy comes home he calls out "HELLO, THE BIRD" to greet me - because - I am The Bird.

Have a joyous day dear one, we send our love and are both very glad you're OK.

Give a kiss to your kind Dad for us as well.
~Wings Up~

Hello Sweet Folger - of is it Ha-Ho today - a bird of so many names....Hmmmm

Hey - happy Tuesday. Had trouble getting on BirdChannel yesterday, so I had to fly away.

Hope all is well with you. Daddy has a busy day, but I have crackers and apples to eat.

  Hi, Folger
Hello, sweet friend

Thankful we didn't get much snow here -maybe 8"
Friends are trapped in their homes South of us - and roofs on businesses and homes strained by the weight of the snow. We pray that the clean-up is quick and that there will be no more loss of life. ~Hugs~

Come visit me, Flitzer.

  Hello from snowy Buffalo
Hello, Ha-Ho!

Yes, our Southtowns got over 60" of snow - and now it's shifted North.
We here in North Buffalo are expecting 12-15" here today - and maybe more tomorrow.

Snow is falling at 3-4" an hour - and I DO hope it stops - Daddy does not like to go out in the snow.
We have plenty of coffee, tea, and treats here at home. I do my best to keep my Dad smiling and laughing through this Wintry Day.

We may even play Christmas Music today. ["Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow"]

  Hey, Folger -
I can't seem to manage almonds either. If Dad takes them out of the shell and crushes them a bit...

I do love peanuts - I scatter peanut shells everywhere.
Sometimes I just drop the nut inside - the shredding of the shell is the fun part.

Hello, Floger Ha-Ho!
Happy Friday from Flitzer & Dad.

Frosty windows here in Buffalo, but the snow in the air hasn't accumulated much yet.

Daddy's older lady friend (93) is fine - she broke her glasses [now replaced] in her fall, and bruised her face -but no other ill-effects.

Have a super day. ~~Wings Up~~

Come visit me, Flitzer.

Happy Friday.
Dad went out for his favorite meal last night: turkey. He tells me that it's ok to eat turkeys and chickens - I try to believe him....but they are BIRDS.
Have a great day, ~Wings Up~

Hey, Ha-Ho.

Another fine day.
Spent a lot of time yesterday with Daddy. He was home on the sofa for a while. I preen his hair and rub my beak in his beard. I love Daddy-n-bird time.

Folger's bird parents chewed off one of her feet and severely damaged her other foot and one of her wings. She cannot fly. Folger has a Guinea pig cage for a home with a fence around it for further exploration. She can climb up her cage and the fence. She does not let her physical limitations inhibit her. She loves to climb, play with toys and seek out and give affection.

Come visit me, Cookie, Toffee, Folger, Dante, Lucy & Peanut.
