  `Ǖ´ Extry!! Extry!! Read All About It! <~)
I’ve got a baby sis, and I’m gonna SHOUT IT!!! ~~ I’m sorry I haven’t been in touch with you like I shoulda been recently; like I woulda LIKED; like I think I OUGHTA! This summer has been really BIG for me!! It’s my first summer in the South. It’s the first time I’ve EVER had my own web page. It’s the first time Mom and I have ever had to ‘play Nurse’ for my Dad. A-N-D… it’s the first baby MACAW sister I’ve ever gotten! (Wait for it…it’s comin’. I promise!) ~~ We’re all having a challenge getting used to the climate here in SC (compared to what I’ve known all my life up in MI). When I first got down here, it seemed really neat to be able to go outside for a walk in March and April. Now, I can’t even imagine how hot a 117° heat index feels ‘cause Mom won’t let us out in it! (Now that I think about it, SHE doesn’t go out in it either!) ~~ Mom and I have been havin’ SO MUCH FUN meetin’ all our new f[eathe]riends, Dad’s beginnin’ to EXPECT to find us in front of the computer whenever he loses sight of us (or in the middle of the night, when he gets up to go potty!). And I know that you know that we just don’t know how to send SHORT notes! (Case in point: THIS ONE!) ~~ Then there was Dad’s gall-dern bladder exor-cision the first part of July. Man! Did he take a looong time getting’ back to work after that one. And, o’course, Yours Truly got to bein’ his favorite care taker during his recovery. I’ll tell ya a secret: I think he took a long time to heal ON PURPOSE, ‘cause he liked the brand of TLC he got from Mom and me. ~~ And the toughest part of the summer has been waiting (until Dad was better enough) to be able to bring home my new baby Green-Winged Macaw sister!!! Her name is Ruby Francesca Begonia!! And she was hatched May 3, 2006! (Mom’s birthday is May 2! Neat, huh?!) ~~ Last week, I got to go stay with her (in the cage next to her) at the bird store where she has been livin’ until we brought her home with us. My best pal, Rainbow, the Harlequin Macaw, called it ‘Camp Get Acquainted’! And get acquainted, WE DID!! While I was at camp, Mom and Dad got us both new cages and set ‘em up in our living room on either side of the computer so’s we can each dictate our correspondence to our BirdChannel friends right from the comfort of our own cribs. So Mom got to work, once Rubes was home, makin’ up a brand new web page just for the Rubicube. And THAT’s really the reason for my note today. We want to invite all my buddies, my pals, my friends to stop by Ruby’s page and say “Hi” to the new baby. You’ll like her. She’s CUTE!!! ~~ Thanks so much for stayin’ in touch with us. We plan to be back on top of all our correspondence again, startin’ now. After you visit my new sis, stop by and see me. I’ll be lookin’ for ya! ~<~)~ PS: If you're plannin' on makin' like a hydraulic drill for the next 50 years, you might wanna consider adding to your 'tool chest'!

  Hello Pretty Shannon!
Hey there girlfriend! Caused any spontaneous fire drills lately? While I am truly in awe of your impressionist talents, that's one you might wanna put in the file...for Emergency Use Only!! (Har! Har!) Sorry about that. Mom says that sometimes my sense of humor is sadly lacking. (You don't think she's sayin' that it lacks...HUMOR. Do ya?!)~~ I'm about to have a captive audience soon. Yep, my new baby sister is a Green Wing Macaw. She is almost 13 months old (Mom JUST found out--because she just remembered to ASK the lady at the bird store, and just made a phone call so that we could tell you accruately!) I will meet her in a week or two when I go to spend a week with her (and be boarded at the bird store in a cage right next to her) so that we can get acquainted on 'neutral' ground. Then, she comes home to live with us for ever and ever!! While I'm away from home, Mom and Dad will put up a new cage for her...AND a new cage for ME. (While your family is involved in remodeling, Mom thinks this a perfect excuse to 'redecorate' the living room, where I live!) Mom has decided to call my li'l sister Ruby Francesca Begonia. (Most folks in our family have a first name, a middle name, a SECOND middle name, and our last name. Makes it very clear just how much trouble someone is in based on the number of names you're being called by!) Mom keeps slipping up and calling the poor kid by 'Francesca', so she decided to add it to the new name she is giving her (Ruby Begonia), which comes from a character created by the comedian, Flip Wilson. (Kinda tells ya a little about the inclination to humor in this household, and where my comedic efforts come from.) She actually came up with the name based on Ruby's beautiful color. I can afford to talk about HER beautiful colors, 'cause they're different than mine, which are beautifuller! Anyways, preparations are coming to a head at the same time that my Dad has to have his gall-dern bladder removed. That's next week, so we just decided to move back Ruby's arrival date 'til we could all enjoy bein' together. Should be before the end of July, no matter what.~~ How's the conversation progressing about that Cockatoo joinin' your family?~~ Mom's kinda concerned about being able to take Ruby places with us, like I can go. I've been doin' it ever since I was about 6 months old. Mom started me out with a harness so she didn't have to worry about me flying away or anything. But I can't fly at all, so once she discovered that, and that I don't even attempt to fly anymore because I ALWAYS meet the ground quicker than I want, she stopped makin' me wear the harness, and I just take advantage of the view from hers or Dad's shoulder. Ruby, on the other hand, seems to have a COMPULSION to fly, according to Mom. My guess is that my harness is about to come out of retirement! I think it's gonna be FUN watching how it all develops. I'll keep ya posted on all the fun and games.~~ See ya! -<`)-

  Hello Pretty Shannon!
HO Boy oh Boy oh Boy! Did you think I forgot about you Pretty Girl? I would never... I COULD never! I've just had a Dickens of a time wrangling my mom to sit her down in front of the computer for longer that it takes to check the weather. So, what's new in the 'Increasing the Flock' conversation? I should have known that once Mom started with that look in her eye, that there would soon be another baby in this house! The people at the bird store call her "Francesca". She has been known to call herself "Trouble". Mom wants to call her "Ruby Begonia". I guess I'll be calling her "Li'l Sis". But while all the preparations are underway for her arrival, I'M being treated like "QUEEN Rosalie"! I even got to go to Mom's Vacation Bible School program on Friday. (That's why I haven't been able to visit...she's been all wrapped up in teaching the kids there how to sing their special songs.) And I got to sit right there on Mom's shoulder, and lead the music and motions with her. You should have heard me, pretty girl. I was in FULL voice! And I did some dancin' too. There's a picture of all of us on my page. Mom and I are waaaay over on the right.~~ Hope all is well with you. You being any nicer to your dad? Ya know, since today is Father's Day, you could consider giving him a little gift or something. Like maybe a kiss, instead of a bite! Dad's are really pushovers, if you learn how to work 'em. But this I know for sure: Biting doesn't work! Besides, you end up cheating yourself out of some extra lovin'. You be a good little girl for your mommy...and stay out of trouble! -<`)- PS Learned any more nifty sounds or words?

  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

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

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!

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.

  Hello Pretty Shannon!
I'm really glad that your mom is giving the idea of adopting another bird such careful consideration. I don't know about your kind [CAG's], but for us big birds, we require a lot of attention. Your mom is wise for taking into account how the additon of a new family member will effect everyone at your house. That's what's happening with my mom right now. We live in a small condo (4 rooms + 1-1/2 baths, and a utility room), and I've already told you how many of us live here. Space is definitely an issue! But Mom is really good at organization--time, space, resources--and if anybody can manage yet another baby, she can. But she's also concerned, like your mom, how I will take to someone new. Especially someone who will probably live close enough to bite...er, I mean touch! She's having a lot of talks with the owners of the bird store about housing, behavior, and acceptance, and such. Since Francesca is only 10 mos. old, I'll be the big sister. That might not be so bad. As a matter of fact, I'm beginning to think it could be fun! (Consider the possibilities, Shannon. WE would actually be in a better position to train the new kids than our moms.) I'll let you know how the decision-making is going as the process unfolds. I'm happy to hear that leaving the TV on is working for you. I hear ya about the limited viewing choices during the day. Funny thing about our remote. Every time I've been channel surfing while Mom is gone, I get yelled at for the little nicks and dents she finds in it. She even complains about the tongue prints I leave when I kiss it for giving me a picture of a bird or something else I like. Oh well, a remote in the beak is worth TWO toys in the cage! Do you have any favorite 'Soap' characters yet? Hang in there kiddo, 'steamy' beats construction noise...every time! -<`)-
