  Hi Shannon
Hi, Mom has been so busy this week she has not had much time to get on the PC so I am doing a one blog to all sort of thing. First off, as Mom and Dad have been out a lot this week, Mom let me out yesterday morning and we had play time before breakfast. I just had so much fun! I spent so much time hanging upside down, swinging and flying around I got really warm. That was when Mom hit on the idea of putting my bath bowl out to see if the idea of a bit of water to splash in and cool me down might be appealing. Well, I was hot and still in playful mood so in I went. I splashed and played around, flying in and out of the water, for about 10 minutes. Needless to say Mom was delighted and I think she might try this again. I don’t mind just as long as she does not get her hopes up to much. A bath once in a while is fine but not every day or every week even. My second bit of news is Mom got me a new hanging play gym. I have not had one of those before so as usual I am treating it with some caution at the moment. Not that I am scared of it or anything. I marched right up to it, in a cautious sort of way, and gave it a very firm stare. I even touched it with my beak. Just haven’t got on it yet. I have to say there are some very interesting toys hanging from it and Mom says she can put new/different ones on when I am board with those. Dad is going to put hooks up in several places so Mom can move it to where ever she and I are at the time. Yea, my Dad is real nice like that. Mom tells me she has a few more surprises coming for me so I am on the lookout for the UPS truck. Maybe that will help keep my mind off this irritating molting. Well, got to go. Hope you are in fine feather. MM

  Hi Shannon
Thanks for the visit. When Mom was looking for a fid she said she wanted a bold, brave baby. When she found me she said I was just so sweet and wonderful she did not mind if I was not bold and brave. Boy was she in for a surprise. I am nothing if not bold which is why I often get into mischeif. hehehe I see you are sort of down on your Dad. I used to be like that but I've let up on him now. I still don't tolerate him messing with my cage and I will not play with him but I do step up and even give him kisses now and again. MM

  Hi Shannon
Oh no. That first pic of me, that is not my water bowl. Heavens forbid! hehehe. That is a bowl on my play stand. Mom usually drops a few foot toys in there for me. That was just me playing. I got all excited and sort of lay there with my foot in the air squawking for all I was worth. That always makes Mom laugh. I see your Mom calls you feather butt as well. My Mom does the same when I do something silly. She calls me toad if I do something naughty but I know I am in real trouble when Mom tells me that I am a right little madam. I think the British to American translation for that is BRAT! hehehe MM

  Hi Shannon
Thought I would fly by and introduce myself. Wow you are just so cute. Had to smile when I read about 'The Husband". I didn't used to care very much for my Dad at first when I was little but I have sort of warmed to him now. That is not to say I don't give him a beaking now and again just to remind him where he is in the pecking order. hehehe. MM

  Grrrrr....daddies....grrrrr!
Boy oh boy...do we share the pain. I do not like my daddy either. I growl and yell if he just comes near me. He doesn't even have to try and pick me up. Grrrrr! I don't like my daddy at all but I love my mom. She is the greatest. She spoils me and protects me from my mean ol' dad. Mom says that I should at least try to tolerate him but I think she is talking crazy. I bite daddy to the point of drawing blood. Mom keeps asking me to at least stop doing that. I have thought about it for my mommy's sake but then I think....NAH! he he he! Mom says I am being a brat when I am so nasty to dad. What can I say? Is it my fault that I love my mommy so much? he he he! I bet mom will be happy to know that I am not the only birdie with a dad issue. Did you meet Jango? He doesn't like his daddy either. he he he! Anyway, I am glad you came to meet me. Your pictures sure are beautiful. Welcome to the club! Kisses! ~TOOTLES~

  Greetings from Shenanigans
Good morning, I hope your Mom makes the decision and I know she will that will be best for all of you. Our place is small too. We have a friend going to Chicago for a week, she leaves Saturday, taking a cage with her, hopes to find a bird while she is up there riding horses. It cannot be Chicago itself I think. We will be waiting to hear if you are an only child or if the family is increasing. You will always be number one in your Moms heart anyway.
