I'm sorry to hear about the incident with Dante - your family and "beak injuries" ....my.
Hope all heals quickly.

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.

Dad and friends took a Road-Trip to Rochester, NY on Thursday.
It was a beautiful day for a drive. Shopping, Visiting a Friend and dinner for the Best Thai Food in Western New York. ['The King and I' in Henrietta, NY]
--

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.

I haven't seen all of my surprises as yet. I'm grateful to have such thoughtful friends.

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.
It's All Daddy's Fault.

Dad went to see "While We're Young" starring Ben Stiller last night - a quirky little comedy.

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

Happy Thursday. Cold mornings here, but afternoons are getting sunny and warm.
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.
[He does have a bag of the right size pellets, but would like to see me eat some from what he has already opened]

Last night's movie: Sergio Leone's great "THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY" (1966) which is as great for its iconic score by Ennio Morricone as it is for it's ground-breaking visuals. We never tire of running this one - Gosh, Clint Eastwood was young!

We watched "Foxcatcher" last night - quite disappointing: Stupefyingly dull.

5 Oscar nominations? We're glad it didn't win any. We don't mind a slow film if it actually tells a good story - but this was simply boring.
