9/26/13-WOW! Thanks for making me BOTD! and I'm new!

He came to the flock with the name of Jack Jack. After watching him and also seeing how many Jacks there are in our BC Family, I decided to change his name to Pimer. The name is from Anne McCaffrey's books. He's a guy who is small, stocky and likes girls he has no chance to get at first.

The day Punkin died I was called to adopt a lovebird. His family were splitting up and wanted him in a good parrot home.

  Day 20-takin' a break in Doan's Crossing
Howdy Pardners; It's a fine day to be settin' back relaxin' in Doan. Now, I must be tellin' ya, that some of these cow wranglin' birdies are inside Doan's Store at the Saloon but all in all it's a mighty good day. The chuckwagon is being restocked as I enjoy restin my vent right here in front of the Doan General Store. Henceforth it's a mighty long trail to the next town along the line. I wanta take today to tell you all a bit about the duties and requirements for each position on this cattle drive.
Trail Boss--must be very experienced, a quick thinker, cool-headed, co-operative and have leadership skills. Carries full responsibility for the entire group-cowbirds, cows, horses. Locates water, grass with the help of scouts, knows how to track different animals, keeps the peace between cowbirdies, and handles all money. Wages in 1880--$90.00 month
Point Bird--High level of experienced, most honored position on the drive, determines direction of the cattle-must be reliable, work in groups, and works in twos keeping lead steer/cow going the correct direction. Wages in 1880--$30-40 month
Swing or Out riders--must have some experience, must be knowledgeable about cattle and using horses to keep them in line on the trail. Position third ways back from the head of herd Wages in 1880 $30-40 month
Flank Riders--must have some experience on trail drives, must know how to ride a horse, Cuts in cattle that stray,rides two-thirds way back from the front of the herd. Wages in 1880 $30-40 month
Drag Riders--Usually an entry-level position--willing to work hard, endure dust & dirt kicked up by the herd, rides at the back of the herd to keep older, calves and cows etc up to herd. Wages in 1880 $30-40 month
Horse Wrangler--Entry-level job, work hard and learn, drives the remuda of horses before the chuckwagon and ahead of the cattle, rounds up extra horses, herds them into a rope corral several times daily, keeps the horses together, eating grass until change over time for cowbirds, makes sure ridden horses get extra feed-corn and grass, keeps saddle horses grouped together, helps the cook gather wood, harness the chuck wagon team. Wages in 1880 $20-30 month
No matter what position a cow bird has, it entails hard work, sweat, and determination and a drive to get the job done. Tomorrow we start our crossin' of the Red River, a dangerous and difficult task for both herd and riders. I think I'll be moseyin' along to the Saloon myself to wet-my-beak.

  Day 19--The Gathering at the River
Yeehaaaaw; Chuey here with a Cattle Drive update. We've been watchin' some would be rustlers whilst the herd was running full out towards the Red River. Trustin' that my wranglers had everything under their control I sat a while and simply watch and listen. The herd slows as it nears the water, as the foamy wet horses breath deeply catchin' a breath after miles of gallopin' all out to keep up with them dawgies.
There's many a peril on the long western trails, from snakes to rustlers, but none is as deadly as the Red River Crossing. Historian Andy Adams described Doan's Crossing:
"Red River, on the northern border of Texas, was a terror to trail drivers. The majestic grandeur of the river, with its red bluff banks, the sediment of its red waters marking the timber along its course, while the driftwood, lodged in trees and high on the banks, indicated what might be expected when she became sportive or angry. The crossing had been in use only a year or two when we forded, yet five graves, one of which was less than ten days made, attested her disregard for human life. It can safely be asserted that at this and lower trail crossings on Red River, the lives of more trail men were lost by drowning than on all other rivers together. Doan was the last town before entering Indian Territory and was the last spot where US inspectors were stationed to inspect herd brands before allowing them to enter Oklahoma.
"The thundering of the herd could be herad clear to Doan and beyond, the dust cloud arriving before the thristin' herd. I figured I'd better get moseyin' along, and keep check on the rustlers later, as the wranglers might be needing me, and the birds to get them back from the water before they drank themselves to death. We creep out real quiet-like and urged our mounts into a gallop and caught up just shy of Doan.
" Boss, what's up with the rustlers?" Sky asked riding fast to catch up
"They ain't movin no where fast, so we left'em settin' and joined back up to bring these dust-bags under control again." Chuey wiped sweat from her forehead with her bandanna.
" Pookie and Snowy have rode up front to cut them back before they hit the water full-out" Cookie yells as he races past on Thunderbolt. " Spot and Chipper are guarding the remuda, to try to keep the horses in check."
The sign for Doan's store whipped pasta s the herd started to pull to a stop atthe river edge, heads down, gulpin' water up like a sponge. " Sugar, Sweetie! Cut them two cows back before they drop dead from over drinkin"" Panther yelled trying to get a red checked bull back into the herd without much success. As the dust began to settle, we could see that the herd had spread out over a mile of river bank in both directions. It would take a lot of skill, energy, and work to gather them back into a herd. Quick horse changing, with Peppino and BonBon saddling and ropin our mounts expertly to keep us movin them Long horned devils back in place.

  Day 18--Red River's calling
Phew what a long night. Keepin' watch on them Rustlers,and holdin' the herd close is a job, especially when they smell water. These Long-horned varmints can smell water for miles and when they do, it's a job to keep them from stampeding. With the comin' of mornin' we are still hankered down watching them, keepin' the rustlers under close eye.
Leaving the herd under the care of my trusty cow-hands, they're up and movin by first light. We're headin' to Doan today,at the Texas-Oklahoma line and our first difficult river crossing. Corwin Doan settled at the crossing back in 1878 and built his homestead there in 1881. Doan had a large stock of goos to supply the cowboys who annually drove cattle along the Western Trail. The village of "Doan't Crossing" had 14 or more buildings. Doan, his wife Liddie (1850-1905), and their 3 children entertained people from all walks of life - English lords to Indians - in theirs adobe house. In fact it is estimated more then seven million head of cattle and horses made this difficult crossing between 1876 and 1893.
"You all better head back to the herd," Chuey instructed, " Kiddo, Jenny-Lynn, TiPaul and Cori, you stay hankered down here and keep watch."
"Ok Boss" Boo Boo exclaimed sneakin' back all quiet like to where our horses have been ground hitched.( reins left hanging from the bit, used when horses might be needed to make a quick escape). The others rode back to the south of where the rustlers where hidden out to pervent their horses getting wind of them and tippin' them off.
"I'm goin' sneak up closer to get a better look, see if I ain't able to hear what they have up their sleeve." Chuey crouched down low and worked her way silently towards boulders not more then 50 yards from where the rustlers sat drinkin; their coffee and eattin' grub.
Sugar, Polly, Zippy, Moggie and Susan where riding point today, but the herd was itchin to run from the get-go. They kept turnin' the anxious cows back into the herd. The whole mass of cattle began to trot as they caught wind of the river ahead. Cinn-A-Bun, and Chyna rode from the drag to talk to the Point riders.
"We might as well give'em head and let'em run, we are can't keep them in and the out-riders are spending their time cutting strays back in. If we don't they're goin' a break anyways and we'll be chasing them to the Red anyways."
"You're right, tell the others to pull out a ways and give them their head." Sugar told them
Cinn-A-Bun went to the south side and Chyna took up the north and rode by to tell the others to pull a ways off and let'em run. The herd picked up it's pace as the smell of water grew stronger in their nostrils. Suddenly the lead cow took off on the run, with the others moving like a massive dusty wave over the ground. The sound of pounding hooves would be heard clear to Doan and beyond.
We're in for a fix of troubles now I'd say, sures hope they can get the herd back from the water in time.

  Day 17--Keepin' watch on the Rustlers
WHOA there Cutter, we have to stop and post our daily Cattle Drive update. I must say, driven cattle ain't for the weak or faint of heart. It takes a real Bird to sit that saddle 12-14 hours a day, 6 to 7 days of the week. Queen Zeena sent word, that we are headin' for another rain shower before we make Doan, on the Red River. That ain't good news, ain't good at all. I be tellin' why.
" Kiddo and Finnegan comes barrelin' in from the hill country with word that we goin' be havin' company right soon. Jenny-Lynn and her side-kick Sweetie are keepin' watch from a safe distance, keepin' tabs so to speak on them rustler-type birds. The others have taken cover in the hills surrounding their news camp, watching, waiting least they make the decision to try to run off some of our herd during the night-watch."
"Boss, what we goin' do bout them rustlers?" TiPaul asks pushing his hat back on his head.
"Don't rightly know. They ain't done anything yet so we best be watching them, and tendin' to our own business along the trail." Chuey says before slapping Cutter on the flanks to get him off in a quick run.
"Cori, Boo Boo and Peppino, come along with me. We're gonna go take us a better look at these rustlers." Chuey finishes as she dashes past at a fast trot.
"Silver, you and Raffi, take first watch. Keep a good eye on the back of the herd. We gotta keep 'em tight tonight. No strayin'" Chuey stops for a moment then moves on.
Dixie, Jedi, and Snowflake see Chuey and the others comin' from a distance, and ride out to meet them. They exchange a few words before turning their horses in the detection that Finnegan said he saw the riders bedded down. In camp Sugar, Kacey, Sweetpepper and Celine saddle up their night horses preparing to start their shift as night-hawks. Swinging up into the saddle Sweetpepper takes one last parting look at the warm fire burning n the camp before she and Sugar begin their watch. The four riders head in the direction of the herd, listening all the while for any unusual happens in the far distant hills.
" I sure hope there ain't no troubles tonight" Lizzie says to Kaji and Falco sitting by the fire. " we been lucky so far to have not encountered any troublin' situations."
"we're ready for them, if those rustlers wanta try taken our herd" Angel says out loud,
"We're a bad group to tangle with." Chipper adds "Cydney, why don't ya come sit for a spell, no sense in wearin' your legs out."
The Scouts, with Chuey and the others ride down-wind of the hidden camp so as not to alert the horses to their presence. They stop at a safe distance and ground-tie their horse, as they creep closer for a better look."
" home, home on the range, where a cow-bird is watchful all day, lest he falls asleep while countin' his sheep, and a rustler runs off with his herd."

  Day 16--The Chuck Wagon part two
Well howdy to all you cow-birds out in the wild west on the cattle drive. I hope you all had a good nights rest, cause am supectin' that we are in for some troubles come sunshine tomorrow. The scouts have been trailing some shady characters up in the hills, but somehow they seem to be one step ahead of us. Though I'm pretty certain, that when Jenny-Lynn, Kiddo and the other scouts find 'em they'll be wishin' they'd stayed clear of us.
With our bellies full of some more of Lizzie's greyt cookin' we be set to move the herd on the trail towards the Red River Crossin nearby to Doan. I do think it's important that we all know how important having Lizzie, Kaji and Mikey drivin' the "Dragon Wagon" Chuck-wagon is. So, without any further jawin' from me we'll finish our history lesson.

The Chuck wagon is equipped with the wide array of supplies needed to make the journey. Besides food, the supplies would include Farrier and Blacksmith tools for horseshoeing or making repairs to the wagon and horse tack. Sewing needles for mending clothing or saddles, first aid and alcohol tonics used for medicinal purposes. Bedrolls and rain slickers for the working cow hands along with the crew’s personal items. One side would be equipped with a large wooden water barrel to carry a two day supply for the working crew. The other side often had a tool box, as well a smaller attached wooden box in front called the jockey box. Additionally, the wagon would have a canvas cover called a Bonnet that had been treated in linseed oil to repel rain keeping items in the wagon dry. To allow headroom in the wagon, bows where added raising the canvas and providing securing points.
The chuck wagon would be managed by the cook . He performed all the needs for the camp sites along the cattle drives. He would be second in charge of the outfit to the trail boss. Due to his importance and position, the cook received pay around $45 per month while the wranglers and cow punchers received $25 to 30 dollars each month on a trail drive. The Cook also was expected to act as Barber, Banker, Doctor, Dentist, letter writer and sometimes referee in camp should tensions flair amongst the hired hands. His normal day started hours before others. Getting up around three in the morning he started by grinding roasted coffee.
Today, the Chuck Wagon so historically represents the era of the trail drives and the Cowboys whom worked the cattle that it was Honored as the Texas State Vehicle and continues operations on many ranches nearly 150 years after its invention. It is no surprise to view a chuck wagon and immediately think of those nearly forgotten trails and the cowboys who drove over 10 million head of cattle to market. Trails of majestic beauty where you can nearly hear the wind echo a ringing camp bell and the Cook calling out, “Come and get it. Get it while its hot”.

  Hi Pimer--Day 15 BOTM POST
Howdy all, Chuey here with a TGIF Cattle Drive Post for you all. I think it is important that we all learn some history about one of the most important aspects of any cattle drive. THE CHUCK WAGON. Now, any cow-birdie worth it's weight in gold, loves to eat. We have been well fed by our wonderful cook Lizzie, and her two helpers Kaji and Mikey. They have been dishin' out some mighty tasty vittles.
There is a majestic beauty viewing over the massive grazing lands that run from Texas north through the Dakotas reaching into Canada. These plains expanded westward into Colorado meeting the rocky mountains and northwest to the Cascade Mountain Range. Scenic hills covered in tall Buffalo grass that whispers its historic past as one might sit silent reflecting upon the romantic images of the American West. As the wind blows through the wild blades of green stems that still flourish today, the sounds of the cowboys yawp can nearly be heard as they command their livestock on the long cattle-drives. Today, no other item best reflects the images of those cowboys who worked the cattle drives than the “Chuck Wagon”.
Prior to the Chuckwagon, Cowboys often relied on eating what they carried in their saddle bags such as dried beef, corn fitters or biscuits. In 1866, cattleman Charles Goodnight knowing the importance for his crew to drive cattle they'd require daily meals, bedrolls, extra gear and supplies. A humble Cowboy could work harder on a full stomach and a good night sleep. The trail would often last two or more months moving cattle several miles each day. Some drives lasting up to five months. Goodnight took a surplus Army Wagon made by Studebaker and added a large Pantry box to the wagon rear with a hinged door that laid flat to create a work table. The cook would then have everything he needed at arms length to prepare food. Shelves and drawers were added to the inside of the pantry to carry supplies and cooking gear. The larger pots, cast iron skillets and utensils would be carried in a box mounted below the pantry called the boot. The Army wagon merely was a light supply wagon of that period with Goodnight’s added design creating the invention of the CHUCK WAGON.
Tomorrow we will finish our history on the Chuck wagon. I smell dinner, gotta go!

  Hi Pimer and Ipo
King Pepper here, with a special message to all my loyal bird subjects. After being picked up and brought to the castle in a way I still do not fully recollect, I woke up realizing I am Bird of the Month, a King, and I surely could not have done this alone. I could only vote for myself once a day, but TiPaul usually beat me to that too. And so this message – I want to thank each and every one of you… Angel & Pepper, Baby, Bilou, Cheyenne, Chico, Chipper, Chloe, Chuey, Chyna, Cookie, Cori & Boo Boo, Dino, Dixie, Falco, Finnegan, Grendel, Gus, Hulk, Indiana Sam, Ipo, Jolie, Jetta, Kaji, Kahlua, Kiddo, Lalo & Ziggy, Little Angel & Sky, Mango (Sunshine’s flock), Mango(Green’s flock), Mango (Lola’s flock), Mayo, Mikey, Miranda & CuBird, Molly, Ms BB, Norman, Oz, Panther, Pearl & Silver, Picabo, Pico & Poco, Pimer, Poirot, Polly & Zippy, Pookie, Popeye, Raffi, RoofTop, Sam, SamIAm, Snowy, Spot, Squak, Sugar, SweetPepper & Kacey, Tooth and Sebastian & finches for coming by and voting for me, whether it was every day… with a blog, without a blog… once in a while. They all added up and I made it to the castle, actually to the BC castle and to Ms. BB’s castle and it is only the second evening and I have been having the time of my life. I thought I had fun training Mom. Heh heh heh – this is going to be more fun than I ever imagined in my entire life. I have had friends stop by to visit and congratulate me and I cannot begin to thank you all enough for that too. I just don’t know where to begin. With the Canada Day party celebration yesterday, I was pretty tired, and I asked my frother to introduce me to his special friend Lizzie, who I know to be the bestest cook ever. Now food is something this bird has a taste for. That table that is at the castle is something I would like to have at home, for days when each of our flock wants something different to eat and Mom finds that so totally wrong. It is the best thing I have come across so far, and I have only just begun my journey. I will do my best to post my diary on my page every couple of days, for those of you who want to know what I have been up to.

  Hi Pimer
First known as the Molson Centre when construction was completed in 1996 the arena was renamed the Centre Bell in February of 2002. This new arena replaced the aging Montreal Forum that was built in 1924 and was considered the most storied building in hockey history. Located in downtown Montreal and with a capacity of 21,273 seats the Centre Bell is the largest arena for hockey in North America and one of the most technologically advanced and versatile venues in the world. It’s home to legendary Montreal Canadiens Hockey Club and the headquarters for evenko. Every year, the home of the Montreal Canadiens attracts more than 1 million spectators to their hockey games, while 650,000 people walk through the doors to watch over 120 shows, for a total of 1.5 million spectators. The Centre Bell incorporates cutting-edge technology to ensure the perfect ambience when it comes to sound, comfort, catering and otherwise for any event, whatever its magnitude. Whether it's attending a Canadiens' game, a concert with a world famous artist or a family show, the Centre Bell is clearly at the top of anyone's venue list. Furthermore, the Centre Bell is the perfect place for corporate gatherings and receptions of any kind.

TiPaul, one very tired campaign manager, leaves an excited Pepper hanging out on his perch, and tells Mom *I need help Mom… PLEEEEZE help me blog to thank all my friends who have been voting for me since I have been going along with Pepper and making sure he is doing things right.* Sure TiPaul – let’s do it now, while Pep Pep is busy on his boing. ..
TiPaul clears his voice, and says in a loud voice, * I just want to thank you for all your votes to get me into the 10K club even though I have not been around to say thanks. Following that frother of mine around is something else. I think, by the end of the month he might know what he is doing. Don`t tell him this but I am looking forward to spending time in the castle with him too. Time with Lizzie, especially. We have had that awful rainy weather here too, and that means staying inside, and taking baths in our water bowls as soon as mom has cleaned our cages. Hope to see you all again real soon.

  Hi JJ & flock
Its good that there are two different kinds of shuttles on BC. That way if one of the operating systems goes down the other one will still work.

My Dad planted leaf lettice, carrots,radishes & green peppers in his small 10'X10' garden this year. Us birds get all that comes out of it.

He will pick dandylions out of the lawns he cuts cause he knows they are not sprayed with any thing but water. Some times he will bring home wild strawberrys he finds.

There are ice burgs in the concreet pond at the Kissing Booth. They will keep the water cool for us birds to play in.

  Hello JJ & flock
Ms BB took me to the castle early this morning and introduced me to Queen Chipper & the castle staff.

There was a squad of recrutes being trained by Sam I Am marching around. Those Macaws look fearce in that armor.

Dad Frank gave me some Fruit Loops as a treet. I took a bunch to share wiyh all the birdes who come to the castle. The castle staff got some too.

Yes there is snow in the BC mountians by the castle. I am going to try my wing at sking this afternoon. The bunny trail looks just about right for me.

  HI JACK JACK & IPO!!!
Thanks for your votes..Wow!!I sure am busy today....V4U...Today my campaign blog will be about "Treating a sick bird"....Accurate diagnosis of illness in cockatiels can be very difficult without laboratory assistance,but you will soon see that a bird is sick.It will sit quietly, with its plumage no longer sleek, and its eyes may be closed.The droppings will alter in appearance and,in some cases,can even show traces of blood.If you begin treatment during the early stages of the illness, there is a good possibility that the bird will make a full recovery.Antibiotic drugs,prescribed by a veterinarian if necessary, can be administered via the cockatiel's drinking water or, in more acute cases injected directly by the veterinarian.Carefully follow all instructions about dosage and never stop a course of treatment before the recommended time.Antibiotics are useful in countering bacterial disease, but are of little direct value in viral and most fungal infections. Fortunately, viral infections are uncommon in cockatiels and the main problem involving fungi is candidiasis,which can be controlled by feeding a well-balanced diet.Sick birds need a warm environment up to 90 degrees F or 32 degrees C.You can keep them in a hospital cage with an infrared lamp.Choose a 'dull emitter'variety, because this produces heat but not light.Suspend the lamp over part of the cage.The cockatiel will then be able to adjust its position,moving closer to the heat to the heat source as necessary...Tomorrow I will continue part 2 of "Treating your sick bird"....Hope you are having a great Sunday....Birdie wing hugs to you...Sam :o)

  HI JACK JACK!!!
So glad the shuttle brought you along with Sophie and Ipo and got the chance to hit that vote button for me....Just pecked a V4U....My campaign blog today will be about "Some of the things Cockatiels can get that will cause health issues"....Cockatiels are usually hardy, long-lived birds and rarely prone to illness.With sensible management,they should live well into their twenties.You are most likely to encounter health problems with newly acquired birds,rather than with birds that are well established in their quarters.By keeping recent purchased birds on their own for about a fortnight,you have an opportunity to ensue that they are healthy and you can treat them for parasites before adding them to your bird aviary....Here are a list of some things that you can find on your new bird, Parasites,Red Mites,Roundworms,Tapeworm,Giardia, Bacterial diseases and sometimes Feather Plucking...Tomorrow I will talk about treating a sick bird...Hope your Friday is a great one...Birdie wing hugs to you...Sam :o)

  Hi Jack Jack
Thank you all so much for BOTD!!

♥To Those I Love♥
When I am gone, just release me,
Let me go~ so I can move into my
Afterglow. ♥ You mustn’t tie me down
With your tears; let’s be happy
That we had so many years. ♥ I gave you
My love, you can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have
Shown, but now it’s time I traveled on alone.
So grieve for me awhile, if grieve
You must, then let your grief be comforted
With trust. ♥ It’s only for a while that
We must part, so bless the memories within
Your heart. ♥ And then when you must
Come this way alone, I’ll greet you with
A smile and a “welcome home”.

Your friend forever, Angel Chi chi

  Hey JJ
It's so good to have you aboard the Pearl. I'm sure you'll learn a ton about being a pirate.
We are supposed to get a foot of new snow tomorrow night into Monday! Temps today though are in the mid 40s. It's sunny and pretty outside, but won't be tomorrow.
Mom took Irwin the porcupine to an elementary science fair last night, and he had a blast! He was so cute, standing and greeting visitors. Mom took a pic on her cell phone, so as soon as she figures out how to get it onto the computer she'll put it on one of our pages. Meanwhile she did post it on her timeline on FB.
Mom did 3 tours of dinosaur hall today, and just got back, so we're a bit late blogging. It was fun for mom, and we're happy to report that Polly is improving by leaps and bounds. She's trying to put weight on her newly repaired leg when she walks. Mom is still lifting her on the steps, though. She is eating and eliminating properly, so we think she's well on the road to recovery. Her stitches come out on Tuesday.
I hope you are having a good day, staying warm and dry. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi J J
Todays featured bird is Snowflake (Little ole me).

Wow we had a fun time !!!
We had all kinds of different music and lots of concerts, such as Hard rock, Motown, country, reggae ,and much more.
We had lots of places to eat such as the hard rock café, an ice-cream parlor and lots more.

There was a make over tent, a dressing room, and a feather stylist for makeovers! And we had a musical movie !!!

My favorite concert we put on was in honor and loving memories of all our BC Angels. Every birdie picked out their own songs and sang to the highest of the high all the way up to rainbow bridge so all the BC Angels could hear us.
The funniest time is when Pearl and Silver put on a country gig. Us girls spiked the beans with J&D. The band of brothers, Panther, Raffi, Tweety, Cookie, Jedi and Spot tooted all night long. They passed out under the table. Ms.BB brought two cases of air freshener to clear out the smell, hee, hee...
Our last two days ended with a concert...The battle of the bands...The band of brothers against The KB rocker chicks.(Us girls)...
Good memories, fun and music at the kissing booth.

Thank you for your votes. Much love to you all.

  Hi JJ
Todays featured bird is Ipo.

There was lots of activities and good food.
We watched a lot of space movies such as Lost in space, Spaceballs, and Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy. We watched cartoons with Marten the Marshen and the Jetsons.

And since it was nice outside Ipo brought a telescope to look at some constellations & stars.
Cori decided to put charcoal around the viewer and all the birdies ended up with black eyes. Hee hee...
Cookie also brought water balloons and we had water balloon fights !!! Ms BB brought her big Supper Duper Supper Soaker. Then the BC fire department showed up and sprayed every birde with there fire hoses!!

We also had some rabbets hopping around hiding eggs for us to find. And we had little pink, yellow & blue ducks all over the place.

Fun, love and memories at the kissing booth.
Thank you for your votes. Much love to you all.

  Hi JJ
Today I am featuring Tweety.

Him and his friends built an awesome sports complex at the kissing booth. There was a basket ball court, football field,
baseball field, game room, Olympic sized swimming pool, tennis court, boxing gym, etc.

We played lots of game and had serious competitions,
(The boys against the girls). We played lots of board games also. We also had a cross-country skiing contest.

We had lots of yummy health food. We ate lots of apple chips and nuts for snacks. The fresh fruit drinks were the best.

At night would play games in the game room and watch cartoon on the big screen TV. One night the boys were playing at the dart board and Tweety walked in front of it, the dart went through his tail feathers and pinned him to wall next to the dart board. Hee hee!!!
No harm done...

The funniest time is when Ms. Chirps coached the girls football team. She cut the strings off the boys football pants and tied their shoe strings together so the girls could win and we did !!! Heehee...
Tweety says his favorite thing that we did was play basketball and the boys beat the girls...And hanging out with his BC friends...
Fun, love and memories at the kissing booth...

Thank you for your votes. Much love to you all.

  Hi JJ
Today’s KB picture is Chipper...

We celebrated Thanksgiving.
We had lots of food that was made by our friends. It was so yummy and we had plenty to eat. Lizzy the BC castle cook brought over lots to eat also.

There was lots of activities.
We had a big snowball fight (boys against the girls). We went sledding and had a sledding contest.

We also made gingerbread houses and every birdie got to decorate their own house.
It smelled so good when the gingerbread was baking.
Tweety and his buddy Cookie went running all over the KB
looking for the ginger bread man so they could eat him !!! Heehee.

At night we watched movies and ate lots of popcorn...
One night we watched old sitcoms. Some of them were in black & white !!!
Chippers favorite activity was the snowball fights. Every birdie loved it and had so much fun.

The best time Chipper had was being able to spend time with all our BC family who came to the KB.

Love, fun and memories at the kissing booth...
Thank you for your votes. Much love to you all.

  Hi JJ
It sounds like you and Oatie are doing much better. keep up the good work. Maybe Sophie wants all the attention and doesn't understand you all have to share your mom.
I have been screaming a lot lately too. I just want summer to get here now!
Well, it was another dreary cold day up here. But tonight we will be in negative double digits! Put an extra blanket or two on the cage! Is spring really coming? Where’s that hot chocolate?

ATTENTION: Remember that the Bird Channel bird-e-club will end by fall of 2014. If you have not joined the new bird club, please do so. Go to Squeaky’s page # 28415 or email her mom Sunny (nubinskis@aol.com). They need all us birdies on the list as soon as possible. So that the site can be set up, thanks.
