Hi! My name is Flitzer

Dad knows that ^I* am THE BIRD, and treats me like a King.

  HI FLITZER!!!!
Sorry for the delay with my campaign blog today but my typist had some appointments and then we could not get on BC until now..Today I am going to talk about A place called Fernwood, East Stroudsburg, Pa...It is a resort but it mainly for day time activities..It has an 18 holes Par 71 Golf Course, 4 seasons Horse Back Riding, Summer Bumper Boats and for some who are a little more daring there is the Pocono Tree Ventures...Spend the day up the trees while you climb balance and zip through the 66 elements of the Pocono Tree Venture ropes course.Great for all levels of outdoor enthusiasts from beginner to expert.The family outdoor aerial forest adventure offers five courses of varying levels of difficulty. Pocono Zip Racer 1,000 ft dual racing zip lines is now open and park of the park.Each course consists of elements between tree platforms that are constructed of rope, cable and wood steps, Tru Blues and rope ladders.Be prepared to see the world from above with the highest point of the advanced course being,over 40 feet off the ground. Pocono Tree Ventures aerial Ropes Course and Pocono Zip Racer are open year-around weather permitting. New for 2015 Tru Climb! They have turned 2 of their trees into climbing "Walls". Climbers are harnessed and securely attached to a Tru Blue Auto Belay which lowers them smoothly to the ground after each climb.They also have Blue Lightning which is the only summer tubing facility in the Pocono Mountains. This all season tubing park is built on the slope that in winter becomes Fernwood Resort's Snow Tubing Park.The attraction includes a newly constructed Magic Carpet Lift with two tubing lanes. Ride to the top of the tubing hill on a moving carpet and glide down just like winter snow tubing without the snow...This also includes a Tiny Tot snow tubing..Hope to some this will be of interest...Want to thank everyone who comes by everyday with their vote for me..Tomorrow I will take all of you to another interesting place...Have a great day...Lots of birdie wing hugs...CYDNEY :o)

  HELLO FROM LITTLE MISS LUCY
Hi Flitzer,
Mommy, two of her daughters, a granddaughter and great-granddaughter were all invited up to Glen Lake for a mini vacation this week. They were supposed to leave yesterday morning, but then that tornedo hit Sunday night and changed all their plans. Our friend couldn’t get in contact with anyone to check on her cottage because of the power being out and so many trees being down. She finally got word this morning that it’s all right, but there are trees down across their access road. So it’s a good thing that they didn’t go. Mommy and Daddy were concerned about all of us birdies with the storms Sunday night, so they packed us all up in our carriers and took us down the basement so we’d be safe.

We’ve had company for almost two weeks now with more to come either tomorrow or Thurs…Skin bro and his daughter are arriving for a few days while skin sis, her daughter and granddaughter are also here till Sat. Oldest skin sis and her husband kicked off the visiting for a week, but left last Friday. We’re all having a great time except Dolly. Poor Dolly is stuck in her cage most of the day except when Mommy takes her out for a bit and holds her on her lap. It’s all because Dolly only loves Mommy and bites everyone else. Mommy can’t take a chance of Dolly biting her little great-granddaughter, Ella, who is going to be 4 next month. She has very tiny fingers and Dolly could probably bite one off. So Mommy is being extra vigilant. I have to run ‘cause Mommy only has a tiny bit of time. Thanks for all of your visits and votes.
Lots of Love and Hugs from Little Miss Lucy♥

He lived a long time!
Yesterday we got some rain and some thunder storms, too. Mom was on the phone when she heard thunder in the distance, so she hung up and got Daisy into her Thundershirt right away. It really does help her to stay calmer. Mom also went out and took some of the hanging baskets to put out into the rain, so they'd get a good soaking. Today we are back to sunshine and warm temps, so mom will go to the pool this afternoon, and probably out to dinner with her sis tonight. Kitchen work starts next Monday, YAY!
Mom has to call the tile place to see if they've shipped the tiles yet. She hasn't heard anything.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of warm weather and love. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Flitzer!

I am sorry to hear about your friend's dad. It is always difficult to lose a parent.

Dad cleaned our room yesterday. Today he is sick. I wonder if the two are related. At least he will be home all day since he has to be near the porcelain palace.

We fids still got our egg breakfast this morning. It is also grape day. I love grape day. Do you like grapes? Yesterday we got raspberries. Dante and I threw ours on the floor. It looks like blood.

  Oh Flitzer
We're sorry about dad's friend - you give him some extra lovin' today to help him feel better . . .

Right in the middle of fixing dinner last night we lost water ! ! Mom found out it was a town problem and the whole neighborhood was out ! Until almost 10:00 ! She had to send daddy out for a couple gallons so they could brush teeth and all - he came back with a dozen roses for mom ! Wasn't that nice ?

Then this morning we woke up to big thunderboomers ! They woke us all up around 4:00 :( I'm taking a nap later !

Today is their 28th anniversary - later on they'll go out to their favorite Italian restaurant - all mom really wants is the fresh mozzarella appetizer ! The place layers it with eggplant, prosciutto, roasted red pepper and basil and then is drizzled with balsamic :) After that she doesn't care what she eats ! I just hope I get a birdie bag !

Have a great Tuesday my friend :) love Cookie

  Hi Flitzer
I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. It sounds like he had a long and wonderful life.

I hope all our dear friends and family are all ok from the fires in CA, floods in FL and the super storms on Sunday in northern MI. There is so much clean up here and will take weeks in many places. We had windshears of 100 mph. One beautiful town has been cut off, can't get in or out. They are working on cutting a path thru all the many trees on the roads to get people to a safe place. We were lucky this time and only had a couple of trees down and debris that we could move to get out. We had a little sun today before the rain. It has really cooled down after the all day storms on Sunday.
Have a good night.
Hugs

  Heya, Flitzer!
We are sad to hear that your friend Joe went to the human Bridge called Heaven. 98 is a wonderful age to have reached. Mom says that when humans get to Heaven, they become whole and healthy and young again. I think that is pretty cool--like our Rainbow Bridge! His wife will miss him, cuz that is a long, long time to be married.

Not a lot going on here today. Nice relaxing day with Mom, getting a lot of head scritches and neck and cheek and chin ones, too. Getting in some new feathers, so needless to say, Mom was full of what she calls bird dust. Then I took a huge bath and boy, did that feel good!

Gorgeous here today-- 81, with no humidity or dew points. Sunny, with a nice breeze. Patio doors were open all day to get the fresh air in. Gotta say that it was a perfect day!

Wing hugs coming atcha!

Our sympathy on dads friend Joe's passing.
In the morning dad is usually the first one up and then he uncovers my condo and opens my doors to let me out. A bit later mom gets up and comes out and sits me on the wastebasket and I get my treat after I go the bathroom in there. Then mom makes my breakfast but this morning things got twisted around a bit and mom was up first. Mom set me on the wastebasket and I did my duty and got a treat and my breakfast and then mom left! She said she had to go take care of skin sis dog, cat and fish cause they were going to Cedar Point today but she would be back in a little bit which she was. Sure glad skin sis got home and mom doesn’t have to do that again. Mom said at that time in the morning there was lots of traffic too. We fids like life the same all the time LOL. “A snail can grow back an eye if he loses one, so if you see a snail with an eye patch he is faking it.” Your kissing cousin, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Flitzer
WE all send our condolences to your friends Dad who passed away.What a wonderful age to be and how sad for his family.
This morning was a bright sunny warm morning after we lost our power again last night, with the highs for the day of 83 and the low of 72,it's 84 right now.Mom got us up and fed us,cleaned our cages and vacuumed our room and the rest of the house.Then she got a phone call from someone who wanted their cockatiels wings clipped.They came down around 11:00am and Mom got the feisty tiel and got bit to shreds but she did get the flights clipped. They will be back again in October before they leave to go to Florida.They had wanted to check us all out and when they went into the Bird Room,Kallie was out and flew at one of the ladies right in the face!Mom was mortified but the lady was all right.They all just couldn't believe all the ribbons we got for our shows and how old we all were!They wanted Mom to give them a demonstration of how our harnesses worked and Mom had Dixie show them how it worked and they then wanted to see our car seat so Mom showed them what that was and they all wanted one for their tiel.They just didn't know how many things there were for us fids out there.The 2 ladies and the one guy that came told Mom that their Tiel flew off from them and was out in the wild for four days!Mom told them they were lucky to get him back at all!They had gone to a vet in Florida who clipped the tiel's wings and they did a chop job on him and he still flew away,that vet never clipped the proper flights and clipped the covert feathers also!When Mom clipped the tiel's feathers she showed them how he glides easily to the ground and doesn't get hurt by dropping like a rock from a bad clipping.
Mom is home with us for the day and hopefully now it will a quiet uneventful afternoon til dad comes home.Mom ordered our fold'n'go travel cages this morning and they should be here within 5-9 days!
Skin bro came over tonight while Mom was in the shower and he got Candida out,she got really scared and flew and lost all her tail feathers,all twelve of them,now she looks like a duck!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

Well, no sunbath so far today. Now that Mom goes to the gym on Monday for training and zumba, that means she is gone in the morning and it's just too hot by the time she gets home around 12:30. Besides it is trash day, and I really do not like being out there when those noisy trucks roll by. I did get a nice nutriberry when Mom got out of the shower after the gym (gym=sweat!).

Then Mom and I shared a ravioli lunch. She puts cottage cheese in it to up the protein and make it taste better. I still just want the pasta though. Afterwards I got another nutriberry. Life is good.

Only in the 80s here today, so maybe late afternoon will be good for a sunbath. That is my preferred time anyway, and I am much more willing to get into the carrier then.

It's Sawyer.
Yesterday was kind of a waste of time. Nothing got done. Dad wanted to finish his chair but mom had other ideas. She sent dad all over town to buy stuff and by the time he got home it was almost dinner time. Oh well, what ever!!
Not sure about today. Dad still wants to work on his chair and pull up some weeds but it may still be too hot and humid. We'll see.
Today will be clear, with a high of 89 and a low of 66.
Hope your day was fun.

Didn't dad just visit last week? I think you told of a recent visit to the 98 year old. That was very good timing. Hard to see friends leave this world, tho'.

Y Tu Mama Tambien (and your mother too???) does not sound like something mom would like, BUT it is at the library. Videodrome is not. Sounds dystopian. Mom remembers hearing the title, maybe when it came out? That one is not in the library system.

Mom and dad watched Stripe with Bill Murray and liked that one--it is NOT sci-fi.

Yesterday, although it was hot (92) had very low humidity so was still fairly comfortable. My Laura and mom didn't get home till 5:00ish and mom didn't want to cook so daddy went out for Chinese food for everyone. I munched on my sugar snap peas, squash and couscous :)

Today is a stay home day for mom - except for the library ! She's almost out of reading material . . . AGAIN ! I must say I like it much better when she goes out to buy books so that I can "help" her read them !

She was checking the long range forecast for our vacation week . . . YUCK ! On and off storms for several days :( Is it the same way for next week near you ? (we have a cabin in the Finger Lakes) Daddy's going to see if he can leave this Friday instead since the weekend is supposed to be nice - we'll see . . .

  Hi Flitzer--
Not much happening here..hot outside and we watch the birdies in the birdbaths. Fortunately we do have air conditioning, so we're pretty comfy. It's a good thing, too, cuz the Moms work up quite a sweat cleaning cages...they'd drown if they had to do it without the AC...

Movies...Last week was Hunger Games, and this week was Life of Pi. Both interesting, but the Moms said the books were better. We can understand that...we find books very tasty! The Moms are really excited because they've been waiting for months for the Shaun the Sheep movie, and it's due out this week. Guess you can figure their cinematographic taste is a bit immature, eh?

Hope all is well with you...keep chewing on those toes, buddy!

I hope that you had a nice weekend. It was very hot here today. Mom and Dad went to visit a rookery in the Ocean City area and nearly all of the chicks have fledged. There were only a few adults and a couple of fledglings to watch...and the fledglings kept jumping from tree to tree and trying out their wings. After Mom and Dad were done watching the birds at the rookery, then they went to the Boardwalk for a while. They had a few snacks to eat, and only stayed for a couple of hours. I sure hope that the weather cools off a bit because it is has been tooooooo hot! Lol I hope that you have a grrr-eee-aaat week!!

Thanks for stopping by...Pecked a V4U..First I would like to thank every birdie who pecks a vote for me...Today the 2nd day of my campaign will be taking you on a shopping trip ..When visiting the Poconos it is almost a must for you to take a day trip to the Crossings Premium Outlets, Tannersville, Pa just of route 80...This outlet has 100 stores to shop in..It is fun to go into the stores and check out the sales...A nice list of food places to get something to eat, sit and relax..Some of those stores are Bakery, Soft pretzels, Desserts, Log Cabin Bar & Grill, Magic Wok, Mr.Deli, Romano's Pizzeria & Treat Zone...Also some more not mentioned..If you get tired shopping there you can go down the road a bit and stop at the American Candle Factory where you can purchase almost any kind of candle you would ever want...Some days if you are lucky that particular one you will be able to watch one of the candle makers carving a design on one that was just made...Besides it being a candle shop you can find beautiful gifts for all occasions..It seems like you never come to the end of rooms that have so much to look at...One rooms just has endless barrels of all kind of candy, treats that you purchase by the pound or however much you would want to buy..That same room has ice cream, soda and other treats you can buy to eat while you are looking around..One thing I can tell you when Mom & Dad go it always seems one goes off in one direction and other in another direction...After finishing there you can then venture down the road a little more and stop at the Pocono Cheesecake Factory..Again certain days you can watch them making the cheesecake..To many people they make the trip to the Poconos just to purchase the cheesecake...It is very good but rich and you can only eat a small piece..But they have many flavors such as, blueberry, strawberry, chocolate, etc...This cheesecake has no crust on the bottom...But yummy!!!!...Now if you still would like to do something else while you are here stop by the beautiful Mt.Airy Casino and try out your luck..Might just hit the jackpot on one of their machines..If you are not in the mood for playing the machines why not take in one of their great shows...You may find that you like the Casino and Resort and would like to book a stay for another time perhaps in the fall when the foliage is beautiful...They also have a golf course and many other things of interest to do...I have posted a picture of Mt.Airy Casino & Resort in my photo gallery if interested to see what it looks like on the outside...I will try and post a few more in my gallery also...Hope this campaign blog will be of some interest..This certainly is only a very small amount of things of interest in the Poconos..So Tomorrow I will take you to another attraction here...Hope you are having a great Sunday...Thank you all again for stopping by..Lots of birdie wing hugs to you, CYDNEY :o)

  Hi Flitzer
We often call the solstice "Midsummer," but it's actually only the beginning. August 1st is Midsummer. the birds have stopped singing. No longer are we awakened at 4AM by the dawn chorus.

Many birds – wrens, robins, and others – may raise more than one brood in a breeding season. Depending on what part of the country you call home, your local birds may still be feeding fledglings, or those young ones might be completely independent by now. This is the time of year when a lot of birds begin to look shabby. Crows are missing feathers, and male Mallards look almost like females. [Listen to Male Mallards Disappear] Northern Cardinals and Blue Jays can be positively bald! It's their annual molt. Or one of two or more for some birds. American Goldfinches lose their bright summer colors in order to blend in with their dull winter surroundings. They'll molt again in the spring to show off those bright yellow feathers.

Some birds even lose the ability to sing after the breeding season is over. The part of the brain used for singing shrinks to lighten the bird's body mass. During the non-breeding seasons of fall and winter, most birds don’t need to sing to establish a breeding territory and attract a mate. Their lighter body mass makes them more agile and thus more likely to evade a predator during their winter foraging.

  HI FLITZER!!!!
Thanks for stopping by my page today...Pecked a V4U...Sorry to get a late start with my campaign but my typist had some company...My campaign will be about the Pocono's of Pa were my parronts & flock live..Going to start off with a great place to visit when in this area is the George W.Childs Park which is a former state park and is located in the Dingmans Ferry area which is about 2 miles from our gated community called Wild Acres...Childs Park Recreation Site is a 1.8 mile loop trail and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking & is accessible from March until November.This is an easy walk on improv with wood steps & viewing platforms of the three waterfalls.It'sy to find the trail head once in the park.This is actually more of a park then for hiking..When you do get on the trail you walk along the creek all the way down to the end and then all the way back up..You will be taking in while on the walk three waterfalls with platforms to stand on to take in the beautiful views.Also in the waterfall areas you will find many large flat rocks to stop sit and enjoy the waterfalls and just sun bath..Many do wear their bathing suits under their hiking clothes. They do recommend not trying to swim in the falls but many do go in the falls just to enjoy walking under the falls...In all it is a great summer day trip...So bring a picnic lunch or stop down the road about 1/2 mile at the Sister's Deli and pick up something to bring along to eat...The access road to the park is paved and there is plenty of free parking with bathroom facilities...The parking lot fills quickly on weekends during the summer months and also in the fall...This is just one of the many Pocono's nature areas that can be enjoyed by all who like walking the trail and viewing the waterfalls plus taking beautiful keepsake pictures..So I am hoping you enjoyed day one of my campaign about this gorgeous place called the Poconos...Tomorrow we will continue on to another site..I want to thank you for every vote that will help me get to be BOTM..Have a wonderful day...With many birdie wing hugs to you....Love, Cydney :o)
