  `Ü´ Are you ready for some FOOT~BALL???
A 3rd Annual Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl Game of … FOOT~BALL???

This evening … to be played on the Milonga Page (#165848)

8:00 pm Eastern
7:00 pm Central
6:00 pm Mountain
5:00 pm Pacific
4:00 pm Aleutian

Jake <Ö) may have been a “BAD Parrot”, but he says it well: “Be there or BE SQUARE!!!”


Well, the Defense still needs to know their jobs, so without any further delay, let’s get started with the Job Descriptions, Mr Rio!

Strong Safety – Generally lines up in the secondary*, but often aligns close to the line of scrimmage In most Defenses this Player lines up over the Tight End and is responsible for both playing the pass and supporting the run.

Free Safety – Lines up deepest in the secondary. He defends the deep middle of the field and seldom has man-to-man** responsibilities. A coach wants this Player free to read the QuarterBack and take the proper angle to break up or intercept any forward pass thrown over the middle or deep to the sidelines.

Defensive Back – A member of the Defensive secondary. Defensive Backs form the line of Defense whose job is to prevent Receivers from making catches and then gaining lots of yards after the catch.

CornerBack – Lines up on one of the wide sides of the field, usually opposite an offensive Receiver. Called a CornerBack because he is isolated on the “corner” edge of the Defensive alignment.

Defensive End – Lines up at the end of the Defensive line. The job of the Defensive End is to contain the Running Back on running plays to the outside, and rush the QuarterBack*** on passing plays.

Defensive Tackle – Lines up on the interior of the Defensive line. The duties of a Defensive Tackle include stopping the Running Back on running plays, getting pressure up the middle on passing plays, and occupying Blockers so the LineBackers can roam free.

LineBacker – Lines up behind the Defensive linemen and in front of the Defensive backfield. The LineBackers are a Team's second line of Defense. Each Team has two outside LineBackers.

Nose Tackle – a Defensive Tackle who lines up directly across from the Center. Also known as the Nose Guard, the primary responsibilities of the Nose Tackle are to stop the run and occupy the Offensive lineman to keep them from blocking the LineBackers.

  Happy Thanksgiving Rio
V4U today. We're flying by to wish you and your family a wonderful and a very Happy Thanksgiving. :) Mom's busy in the kitchen, Dad's busy reading the paper. LOL :) Everyone will be coming to our house for Thanksgiving lunch today. Our flock has been told that we will get some of the food, too. :) Mom is sorry that she has not been blogging lately. Along with being busy, our oldest dog just had a cancerous tumor removed. So mom has been preoccupied with that. Thank you for your friendship, and have a wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving. :) From, Mayo

  `Ü´ Greetings & Good Evening
Mr Rio!

I am flitting by this evening for a very short visit to share with you a little bit of the great fun I had this Tuesday past presenting a program with Momma for The Sylvan Seniors at Mt Sylvan United Methodist Church in Durham, where Momma and Daddy attend. (They do not attend the s-e-n-i-o-r-s functions. **TeeHee** They attend CHURCH there.)

Momma and I were given half an hour to address the group, to share what Life with a Parrot is like, for most of them had never had an eggsperience with a companion parrot; particularly not one of my size! When we have a program like that, Momma usually starts out by eggsplaining how she and Daddy came to start a flock like the K Kritter Korral, and how it grew; and then, through sheer human curiosity, we have a wonderful conversation about what all is entailed in living with a parrot (or parrotS). Of course, I-I-I contribute greatly to program content; this time including a stroll back and forth in front of the front row at one point, for emphasis of the subject matter at hand. (At just the right point in time I climbed down off my play stand and let Momma know I had something to add. **GRiN**)

When our time for the presentation was over, the group had some lunch together. I was given my fill of some lovely white grapes by a number of brave ladies and gentlemen, and then several of them wanted to have their picture taken with me. In my Gallery at the bottom of my page you can see just a couple of the lovely folks I visited with parrotsonally.

I shall return with those promised eggsplanations of the positions of the players on a FootBall team when next I visit.

Toutes alors, mon ami,
[Until then, My Featheriend]

  I do hope I am providing you with interesting and accurate information that satisfies your curiosity about American FootBall, its history and its structure. I am finding the details of my research quite entertaining. Are you?

I am very happy to report than Momma’s hand is much improved! While there is still a bit of swelling and light bruising on the back of her hand, she is now able to fully use her fingers with only minimal hindrance and no discomfort. Thank you so very much for your thoughts and prayers, good wishes and concern. (I believe she and Daddy have plans to purchase a new NylaBone for Mr Tyson; one that he cannot fit through his crate to deposit on the floor and cause more accidents!!!)

When I continue with the background information of American FootBall, we shall be moving along to Season and Playoff Development. I am looking forward to sharing what I have learned in that area with you.

Toutes alors, mon ami

  `Ü´ Greetings & Welcome to Week 11 …
of the 2014 NFL Season! The week “kicked off” (**TeeHee** … if you will pardon the pun) last night with the Buffalo Bills traveling to play the Miami Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium. The Dolphins won handily, 22-9. I do hope that you were able to enjoy some Stitch’s Spicy PopCorn with the Game!

It was so lovely to receive your visit, Mr Rio, and I thank you so very much for your vote that raises the tally toward my Quest for the BOTM Crown. And it is, once again, with apologies that I am a day late returning the kindness. For those of you who did not see the note on my page, Momma had a bit of an accident which prohibited her being able to assist me in visiting you. It involved a little mishap with a dog toy on which Momma slipped and, in the attempt to catch herself and prevent falling, she injured her hand on the door frame. It is very sore yet today, so I will not be able to leave any parrotsonal comments on my visit as I prefer doing, but will be resolved to using the copy and paste method of delivery for the time being, until Momma’s had is less sore. (It seems that she can click on the left side of the mouse without too much discomfort. The right button is a bit painful. And typing is one key at a time; not conducive to individualizing each note.) Be that as it may, she is determined to keep in step with my FootBall information for you.


Now, let’s pick up where we left off, completing the Founding and History of the NFL before we move on to Season and Playoff Development next.


UNTIL THE 1960s, the NFL was the dominant professional football league and faced little competition. Rival leagues included three separate American Football Leagues and the All-America Football Conference (AAFC), none of which lasted for more than four seasons (although several teams from the AAFC joined the NFL after the league dissolved in 1949). A new professional league, the fourth American Football League (AFL), began play in 1960. The upstart AFL began to challenge the established NFL in popularity, gaining lucrative television contracts and engaging in a bidding war with the NFL for free agents and draft picks. The two leagues announced a merger on June 8, 1966, to take full effect in 1970. In the meantime, the leagues would hold a common draft and championship game. The game, the Super Bowl, was held four times before the merger, with the NFL winning Super Bowl I and Super Bowl II, and the AFL winning Super Bowl III and Super Bowl IV. After the league merged, it was split into two conferences: the National Football Conference (NFC), consisting of most of the pre-merger NFL teams, and the American Football Conference (AFC), consisting of all of the AFL teams as well as three pre-merger NFL teams.

  `Ü´ Greetings Mr Rio!
I do hope you were able to locate and read the posting Momma and I put together for Veteran’s Day yesterday. I apologize for both of us that we did not visit anybirdy yesterday. Momma had made an appointment for both me and Caique frother Sammy to have nail and beak trims with Dr Burkett, the BirdVet [and if you look him up on the internet, that is how you will find him listed **TeeHee**] in the afternoon, after she finished up with all of her other responsibilities, and during the time when we would normally have begun our visits. The greater complication arose when I became very agitated and overwhelmed during my beak trim. Dr Burkett even stopped his work before he finished all that he wanted to do because he told Momma it was not worth stressing me out further. Momma was VERY concerned because I was breathing so very hard, as was Dr Burkett.

At any rate, once we got home, and after Momma stayed with me for a long time to make sure that I was completely restored to normal, she herself was so stressed out that she was unable to settle herself down so that we could go to work delivering my note to everybirdy. Daddy and I both insisted that she just take the evening to calm herself and regain her composure before trying to go to sleep at bedtime so that she COULD get a good night’s rest, knowing full well that she would not be able to focus enough to be efficient while working on the computer and would therefore likely be up all night (being stubborn as she is) to complete the task.

What was so important that Momma would have scheduled an appointment with Dr Burkett for something as basic as a nail and beak trim right in the middle of the heightened activity of my Quest for the Crown? Well, I have a Public Appearance scheduled with the Seniors Group at Momma and Daddy’s church this coming Monday, and Momma wanted to be sure that my nails and beak would not be off-putting when they wanted to hold me. (And everybirdy ALWAYS wants to hold me! **GiGGle**) Besides, I-I-I always insist on looking my best when I have an appearance in front of the public.

I shall look forward to visiting again tomorrow when we shall complete our Founding and History of American FootBall, and then move on to Season and Playoff Development the next time.

Toutes alors, mon ami

  Hey buddy !
Happy Humpday ! I am pleased to say that excepting my blood work (we'll know that in a couple days), Dr. Hess thought I looked real good ! My weight was perfect and she said I soft and beautiful feathers ! In fact, I even got a nice fat blueberry when I got home :)

The rest of the day mom did some schoolwork and I played - quietly. . . it was such a stressful day for me though, I got myself to my sleeping perch at about 6:30 last night - all pooped out ! Mom and dad went out for a little walk around the neighborhood since it was one of the last mild days we'll be having. Guess what they saw ? One house a couple blocks away had their Christmas tree up and in the window ! ! ! It's not even Thanksgiving ! YIKES !

Have a great day ! Give everyone there a wings up for me ! love Cookie

  Hey Rio !
Flags today in tribute wave
For those loyal ones who gave
Of their youth, their hopes, their might
For a cause they knew was right.

Morning bells sound their call.
Pause and say a prayer for all -
All who served valiantly
That men might be ever free

My beak is sharpened and I'm ready for Veteran's Day at the vet ! Or maybe I'll come hide at your house !

  Morning Rio !
Nice easy week coming up ! Mom goes to work today - off tomorrow for Veteran's Day - I could get used to that schedule for her ! Of course, being off tomorrow for both parronts, it's also my annual check-up day ! UGH ! !

So today, I shall spend my alone time, not watching the Disney channel as I usually do, but sharpening my beak for that vet tech ! She's a tricky one ! While Dr. Hess is playing popsicle stick games with me, she pretends she wants to play peek-a-bird with the towel, and then before I know it ? TOWELED ! Well, not this time !

Have a great day ! love Cookie

  Now, moving on …
to today’s planned History of the National FootBall League, this may serve to give us all a clearer picture of our American FootBall Heritage.


The National Football League (NFL) is a professional American football league that constitutes one of the four major professional sports leagues in North America. It is composed of 32 teams divided equally between the National Football Conference (NFC) and the American Football Conference (AFC). The highest professional level of the sport in the world, the NFL runs a 17-week regular season from the week after Labor Day to the week after Christmas, with each team playing sixteen games and having one bye week* each season. Out of the league's 32 teams, six (four division winners and two wild-card teams**) from each conference compete in the NFL playoffs, a single-elimination tournament culminating in the Super Bowl, played between the champions of the NFC and AFC. The champions of the Super Bowl are awarded the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Various other awards exist to recognize individual players and coaches. Most games are played on Sunday afternoons; some games are also played on Mondays and Thursdays during the regular season. There are games on Saturdays during the first two playoff weekends. Sometimes, there are also Saturday games during the last few weeks of the regular season.

The NFL was formed on August 20, 1920, as the American Professional Football Conference; the league changed its name to the American Professional Football Association (APFA) on September 17, 1920, and changed its name to the National Football League on June 24, 1922, after spending the 1920 and 1921 seasons as the APFA. Following the NFL's merger with the All-America Football Conference at the end of 1949, the league adopted the name National-American Football League, but reverted back to National Football League three months later. In 1966, the NFL agreed to merge with the rival American Football League (AFL), effective 1970; THE FIRST SUPER BOWL WAS HELD at the end of that same season IN JANUARY 1967. Today, the NFL has the highest average attendance (67,591) of any professional sports league in the world and is the most popular sports league in the United States. The Super Bowl is among the biggest club sporting events in the world and individual Super Bowl games account for many of the most-watched television programs in American history. At the corporate level, the NFL is a nonprofit 501(c)(6) association. The NFL's executive officer is the commissioner, who has broad authority in governing the league.


At this point, I shall conclude my History Lesson for the day. I shall pick up with the balance of the lesson with my next note.

Have a lovely day. À la prochen frois, mon ami [Until next time, My Featheriend]

*bye week – Refers to any week during the regular season in which a team does not play a game. Each NFL team has one "bye week" during a normal season; this is placed on the schedule between Week 4 and Week 12.

**wild-card team – In general, a tournament or playoff berth awarded to a team that has not qualified through normal play. The wild-card teams constitute the two teams in each conference – after the division winners – with the best overall records.

TGIF ! And then there's still Tuesday when mom and dad are both home for Veteran's Day . . . unfortunate thing about that is that it's also my annual check up ! So I'll spend the next few days sharpening my beak ! One of these days I'll get that tech ! Not Dr. Hess - she loves me -

Hopefully mom will be home early today - the kids have a half day because of teacher meetings. Every year mom has her kids make thank you cards and she delivers them to the VA Hospital here. That's what they're doing in 4th grade today ! She'll drop them off on her way home.

Only 3 weeks to Thanksgiving . . . lots to do ! Mom will have to get busy :) I bet your sweet mom will be working a lot now that the holidays are coming up ! More hours means more money and more money means more toys ! Have a good Friday - love Cookie

  `Ü´ Greetings & Happy FootBall Sunday to You!!!
(That is, it WAS Sunday when Momma and I started answering my notes for the day. **TeeHee** But with Daddy still not feeling well, much work fell to Momma yesterday and we got a late start with my visiting, she became weary, and I insisted that she go to bed! I do apologize for not returning your kind note promptly. And I appreciate your visit and vote more than I can say. We shall make every effort to regain our good standing with my correspondence today. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding. I love you for it. ♥

I do hope that you have been able to enjoy watching a game or two today. Which Team is your favorite? Momma and I just LIVE to watch Peyton Manning and The Denver Broncos each week during the FootBall Season! (Parrotsonally, I think Momma has a big *CRuSh* on Mr Peyton. **GiGGle**)

Of course, we Fids of The K Kritter Korral are actually much more interested in what Sunday afternoon FootBall games mean for US …

I’m sure you’ve heard at least one of us mention our flockily’s favorite, Delicious Stitch’s Spicy PopCorn once or twice in the past. I thought today I would share the recipe for this bird safe treat with you and your flock so that we might ALL be able to enjoy it during the rest of this 2014 FootBall Season.

To give you just a little background on where the recipe comes from, Miss Stitch was one of the first birdies to befriend my Rainbow Bridge Fister, (~> Rosalie Hale Bopp, nearly 7-1/2 years ago. (Miss Stitch is on page #15308, if you would like to stop by later and say “Thank you!” for this wonderful concoction.) At any rate, Miss Rose and Miss Stitch were in conversation one day, and Miss Stitch happened to mention that she had enjoyed some of her momma’s Special Recipe PopCorn while watching a FootBall game. Well, OF COURSE, Miss Rosalie jumped right on the opportunity to inquire about this lovely sounding treat, and Miss Stitch was very happy to oblige with the recipe. After Momma and Daddy searched for a PopCorn popper that could be dedicated to the recipe (you will understand why after you actually read the recipe!), they made a batch and shared it with Miss Rose and Mr TidBit, the only other parrot in The K Kritter Korral at the time. From there, the size of the batch of PopCorn that Momma and Daddy prepare has blossomed as the size of The K Kritter Korral has grown. Currently, it takes THREE PopCorn poppers to accommodate The Flock AND Momma and Daddy for a game! **GiGGle**

And now, without further ado, I give you the recipe; which I hope you will enjoy at least as much as my Flock and I do!

  October BOTM POST number twenty-five
Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with my final BOTM Adventure Post. Tonight is a special night with Ghosts, and witches, Ghouls and every manner of scary beasties. It's Halloween. I want to begin first by saying THANK-YOU to all my many BC friends for their loyalty to daily voting, words of encouragement and some funny lines I used within the story Adventure. It's never the same without your friends to share in all the fun. I had a lot of fun exploring the BC Castle Corn Maze with you. I can't say I'd love to do it again like my fister Little Angel would, but doing it with you made it more fun and less scary all the way through.
A very special thank you to Queen Angel Girl, my beautiful African Grey fister for an awesome Milonga Halloween Castle Tour. She did a greyt job even if she is busily learning FELIX'S "eye of disdain" for our trainee, Momma Deb. I hope I was able to make up for the missing blogs in Angel's campaign due to all that took place with our beloved Sassy.
I want to remind you to please make sure to go over to play at RUBY's page # 35469 during the month of November as this gorgeous Macaw Lady-bird entertains and educates us during her very own BOTM Campaign. Let's give her all our BC support on her quest for the Castle.
"OK, I did my speech can we go now?" Jesse asks
"YES JESSE, you can go!" Momma Deb says with a nod and smile
"OK, COME ON TRICK OR TREAT TIME AT THE CASTLE!!!!!!!!!"

Queen Angel Girl watch as her friends dressed as witches, wizards, super-heroes and all sorts of very cute creatures spread out for the annual Halloween eve fun. Candy is hidden all over the Castle.
"One hint" one of the Macaw Guards says as we get started, " there's lots of candy hidden in the CORN MAZE!"
"NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" scream the birds, " we don't want candy that badly"
"Just joking, it is hidden allover the Castle, and every room has someone there handing out candy. Go to the Games Room first we put SKY there, and he says he Loves candy." Queen Angel says with a laugh.
"Come on everybirdie, time to have fun, then we can play games. There's bobbing for apples, ring toss and my favorite spin-the-bottle" Jesse says smiling as he looks at Falco and how beautiful she is tonight.
The birdies spread out all over the Castle trick or treating, filling their bags with Nutri-berries, peanuts, sunflower bars and candies. Little Angel helps Dixie, as she carries the bag for them from room to room. " We sure have lots in our bag Dixie" Little Angel pulls their bag along the Castle hallway. We'll have candy to last all year.
" SKY!" BB says making him jump, " did you eat ALL those candies yourself?"
"NOPPPEE" Sky mumbles through a beak filled with popcorn-balls and pickles?
"Come on, let's go find more candy" BB says taking Sky by the wing, " you better stop eating so any pickles before you turn into one. Again!"

  October BOTM POST number twenty-one
Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with your Monday BOTM Adventure Post It was awesome to see so many of our friends at the Haunted Castle Tour Milonga on Saturday evening. We had a frightfully good time.
Sky scrambles up the ladder after the others are all safely together on the wide road above. Looking around carefully he sees that it indeed appears to be the road that leads tot he castle, the help in finding the others who are missing and Lizzie's kitchen, and an endless supply of pickles.
"Ok Jesse, let's get moving, we need to get to the Castle and get the Macaw guards. If we come back soon as we can, we'll all be a safely home by nightfall" Sky says encouragingly
BonBon tugs on Jesses wing! "Uncle Jesse? Are we gonna find Spot now?"
"We're sure to find him and all the others and if not, George the Tiger will help us find them!"
"OK," says BonBon, a little mollified.
Sky picks her up and says, "come on little one! You'll be safe with me!" Off they go down the wide road! Sky stops to pick up Dixie and L'il Angel, placing them onto his other shoulder. With the Castle so close everybirdie feels much happier and certain that all will be ok in the end.
"We should be at the Castle really soon. The Squawk-atiels are flying past more often now, we're definitely heading in the right direction." Jenny-Lynn exclaims
Spot hears the sound of the others in the distance and gets up from beneath the tall oak tree. He'd done what his Momma Rea had always told him to do if he got lost, " stay where you are until I find you" He was relieved to know that the others would be there soon, and he'd be safely back with his friends. He listens and can hear his Poppa Sky, Jenny-Lynn and even his fister BonBon. He smiles knowing she's so worried about him. "I know she'll never admit it" he says to himself.
"Come on everyone, let's hurry, the sooner we arrive at the Castle the faster we find help in locating our missing friends, and my wife-bird Sweetpepper" Kiddo calls out as he hurries to keep up to Jesse.
Spot watches as in the distance the group of friends grows closer and closer. He decides he should head their way and rejoin them and having made the decision heads off towards the south. Spot quickens his pace as the group grows nearer to him. He begins to call out, trying to get their attention.
"Did you hear something?" Lizzie asks Willie, " I'm sure I just hear something."
Willie looks in the direction Lizzie points, but seeing nothing he shakes his head, " No, maybe you thought you heard something Lizzie. No one's there."
Lizzie frowns. She is pretty sure she'd heard someone calling out for help. She walks along, listening to hear the voice again. "THERE!" she says, hearing Spot calling once more. Willie looks once more, still seeing nothing. "Lizzie, you're hearing things"
Spot calls out again, but no one, except Lizzie looks in his direction. "They can't hear me!"

  Hi Rio
V4U today. Our flock sure does like the cooler weather because it gets mom in the kitchen to do more cooking and baking. And yes, not only have we been eating squash, we also have been served sweet potatoes. I must admit that our flock prefers sweet potatoes. LOL :) The fall seems to be flying by so quickly. To think it's almost November, then Thanksgiving. Have a good day. From, Mayo

Come visit me, Mayo, Dandy & Marigold.

Hello. Hello. Quit that. Quit that. Geesh. Geesh. It's me Jesse, the real Jesse with today's BOTM Adventure Post.
Snowflake looks at her double, " Two Snowflakes are better than one heehee" Her double laughs too.
"You know this could be fun, especially when time for grooming." Cookie says, " then again how can I tell which me, is me?" he frowns and his double copies his every move.
Jesse stands tall, trying to see if he can find a logical answer to this double-trouble. He finds BonBon sitting on the path in front of her double. She is carefully grooming out the spider webs from her feathers.
"What are you doing?" says Jesse.
"Preening! After all, I am a pretty bird! I can't be seen with this junk on my feathers. So when I found this mirror, I decided it was a good idea to clean up some!"
"MIRROR!" shouts Jesse. "Hey Spot, these are mirrors!" Jesse yells eggcitedly.
Spot looks critically at his double and says," I hope I don't really look this bad! He starts to preen as well."
"Aaaaaagh" says Jesse. "We are still missing birds! Clean up later!" Jesse is thrilled to learn that the doubles are in fact mirror-images. " we can keep going. Our doubles are just reflections in mirrors. That's why they do everything we do exactly, they are us, only doubles." Jesse scratches his head,, "Ok, that was even confusing to me, but the point is, we can leave the doubles behind."
Snowflake frowns, "I kinda like my double. She's beautiful, and loves to giggle just like me."
Kiddo comes to where Jesse is standing, a sad, worried look on his face. "OH NO! Where is my SweetPepper??!! I have no idea, and it is really scaring me that my wifebird in now one of the missing. We need to find the Macaw Guard right away for some help. Maybe George the Tiger could help with his superior smelling abilities."
Jesse agrees, and helping Kiddo up onto a large boulder, he waits as Kiddo calls "GEORGE! GEORGE! We need your help!"
"I sure hope he hear me." Kiddo says climbing back down. " we have to locate the missing birds."
"We will, don't worry. We can't be too far from the Castle now." Jesse replies encouragingly. " let's get everybirdie ready and keep going. We'll be safe at the castle soon."
Kiddo and Jesse wander around the group of double-birdies, telling everyone the news that they will soon be at the Castle. Bidding farewell to themselves they leave their double behind, as they start off once more along the worn path. The ground slants upwards as they continue to walk quickly along. The late day sun feels warm on their backs. After a while Jesse stops for a break and sits down on a large rock,looks up, and seeeeeeeeeeeeeees

Hi everybird, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. It is such a relief to be free from those creepy, crawly, ucky black Monster sized Spiders. I didn't wanta say anything but I think that some of them are the Giant Birdeater Spiders. "YUCK, is all I can say."
"Where are Sweetpepper, Apache and Pearl gone?" Kiddo asks in fear for his wife-bird and friends.
"Not again" Jesse says his yellow face turning a ghostly white. "they have to be here, I just saw them a moment ago!" Jesse brings to run back and forth searching under every bush, behind every tree and asks everybirdie, but he is unable to find his missing friends. Sadly he returns to where Sky is in deep conversation with Jake and Spot.
" We have to get to the Castle. We can't delay. Our friends are gone, and we have to save them." Sky's voice hesitates for a moment, before finishing his sentence, " before it's too late"
"Everybirdie" Jesse calls out loudly, " we are going to follow a path I found searching for Sweetpepper and the others. It looks well traveled, it must lead to the Castle. We have to hurry, it's getting late, the sun will be setting soon."
Jesse leads out, following the path, watching carefully for anything "odd" he might find along it. Everything is fine, and he begins to relax, the birdies are making greyt time, they will be safely at the Castle soon. Then he can return with help to find their missing friends.
"JESSE?" Spot flies up to walk with him, have you noticed anything weird?
"Nope, everything looks fine. WHY?" Jesse asks an edge of concern to his voice.
"No reason, well, maybe it might be odd, maybe not but have you noticed that every tree is planted beside another one that is the same?"
Jesse looks at the trees beside the path, and certainly it is true, every tree has a perfect match to it. He continues to watch as he walks quickly along. Every rock and every bush also has a double.
"Yeah, it sure is odd Spot." Jesse turns his head to speak to Spot and let's out a terrified scream, " SPOT? SPOT?" he yells in terror, as his eyes fall upon not one but two Spots. Jesse screams again, and a perfect echo follows, causing him to snap his head to the right to come beak to beak with "HIMSELF! AHHHHHHHHHHH!"
"SKY, JAKE, come quickly!" the two Jesse's scream in echo of one another. Jesse tries to get away from himself, but his double follows every move he makes. he sees Sky and Jake coming his direction, and stops. There are two of each of them, in fact everywhere Jesse looks there are two of everybirdie. The others realize that they too have a perfect double and fear spreads like fire among the group.
"Falco? BooBoo?" Hulk asks then backs away unsure of which one is the real Falco and the real BooBoo.

Hi everybirdie Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. I want to take a moment to thank you all for your continuous daily votes, and awesome blogs. I am trying to use them in my story line so keep them comin.' IF anybirdie still needs a Halloween picture please let me know your choice of costume and I will see what I can do to help you out.
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" Sky screams shrilly and he a Jake back up quickly from the mound of parted grass. "What was that thing???"
"I have no idea but I'm outta here" Jake heads back to rejoin BB and the others, with Sky following on his heels.
Sky shivers, and ducks behind BB. Peaking out to stare towards the grass with dilated eyes. "EEEEEKuck." Sky did not get the words out before birdies began to scream and jump as fast as they could to join Jake and Sky behind BB and BonBon who had come to see what was wrong with her Poppa Sky.
"S-P-I-D-E-R-S!" from every direction big, ucky, black, beady eyed spiders crawl, hang and appear out of every tree, bush and from behind every blade of grass. The girl birds huddle close together as the spiders spin their webs angrily from every solid object. Sky nervously sneaks a peak again from behind BB, closing his eyes. He hates spiders, well no, Sky is afraid of them, and these are BIG, black ucky ones with a quadrillion legs. He shutters, then takes a brave breath of air.
"BOYS, we must protect the ladies" Sky announces not too confidently.
"Yeah, that's right" Cookie says, hanging tightly onto BB's leg once more. " we'll protect you girls"
"Oh really, they're just Spiders" BooBoo says snatching one in her beak and swallowing it whole, "YUMMMMMIE"
The others look at BooBoo and make faces, "how disgusting BooBoo, eating it without BBQing it first" BonBon chirps up. " AHHHHHHH, ones chasing me" she says taking flight. She lands on her Poppa Sky's head. "I'll sit up here and keep watch on them for you" she grins down at her red feathered Poppa.
The spiders continue to emerge, spinning thick webs everywhere. Their black eyes glaring like fiery flames of anger. The birds huddle closely as the Spiders move closer and closer. Suddenly Jesse sees what looks like an opening, and yells, " Follow me" he runs as fast as his talons will carry him between two Mulberry bushes with the others closely upon his heels. The duck low to avoid the heavy webs hanging from the old dark trees, and weave to the left and right around the huge black spiders who appear to block their path of escape. Jesse rushes forward, jumping over an old fallen log, and lands inches from a monstrous Spider, who growls and snaps his feet at the pasting birdies.
"EEEEEEEEEEEE" the scream brings the fleeing birds to a halt, "LITTLE ANGEL, the Spiders grabbed her into their web, HELP HER!!!!!

  Hey Rio !
It's Sunday - and it's getting chilly and windy here. Dad got up during the night to close windows :( So when mom got up (after sleeping in till almost 6:00 !), instead of getting right on line with her coffee like she usually does, she went out to start cleaning up the back deck. There's a freeze warning for tonight so all the plants have to be cleaned off (bugs) and dragged in before the end of the day . . .

Mom also has a little school work to get done which I'm hoping she'll let me assist with ! Math tests and compositions . . .

Love the pictures of you and the ARMY sign ! We live right near West Point and the parronts get to a couple games a year ! GO ARMY !

Have a great Sunday ! love Cookie

Hello friends, Jesse here with our Saturday BOTM Adventure Post. As we turned for a final look at BC Lake, the water is once more calm, glass-like and no sign of the past violent storm remains. Even the row-boats have disappeared. "WHAT! The row-boats, their gone!" Kacey exclaims loudly as she stares in disbelief. For indeed the boats had vanished into thin air.
BB looks at Sky and Jesse, then back at the Lake, "I hope we can find the BC Castle. It is funny that it has disappeared on us. I know it is a magical place but why would it vanish on the birds who love it sooooo much???" Then looking down towards the ground she says with a sigh, "Can somebirde please remove Cookie from around my legs? Its hard to waddle this way."
" SURE HOPE WE FIND OUR WAY BACK TO THE CASTLE THEN FIND OUR FRIENDS. THIS IS ONE SCAREY TRIP.' Sweetpepper tells Kiddo with worry in her voice. Kiddo takes her wing in his, and holds her tightly. "We'll get out of here, don't you worry Sweetpepper."
Spot comes to where Sky, BB and Jesse are standing, trying to decide what to do next. Jake walks towards the group, but suddenly stops dead in his tracks. "What was that?" he asks pointing to where he had thought he saw something peaking out of the grass at him. Seeing nothing he joins the others.
Bonbon looks and sees that her picture with Parker is in the photo album Hesse has on his gallery. turning to spot and Parker she says, "Jesse put me and Parker in the profile!Hehee!!! I can't wait to show Snowflake........ Oh no! I forgot that she disappeared!" BonBon starts to cry loudly because she misses her friend!
Spot hugs her and says, "don't worry BonBon. We'll find her and all the others too!"(He sounds more confidant than he feels, but he won't let BonBon see that!)
"Hey, Panther! I have an idea! We're tiels, and fly well! let's go up as high as we can and look for them!"
"Good idea, Spot," says Panther.
Jesse says, "you guys be careful! And keep up in sight range, OK?"
"OK, let's go Panther!" Spot lifts into the air
They fly straight up and fly in a big circle looking for their friends. Finally, they land and report to Jesse. "We didn't see them, we also didn't see the castle in any direction! I think we're lost!"
Worry lines form on Jesse's handsome face again, and he says, "it must be a trick of some kind by the BC ghosts! The Castle has to be there. It's always easy to find from the Lake."
Jake and Sky stand close, talking. "I am certain I saw tiny black eyes staring at me from over there, then they disappeared." Sky looks in the direction Jake indicated. Seeing nothing he frowns. " We better go check it out, just to be sure." The two boys inch closer to where the eyes had been. Parting the grass carefully using a stick Sky found on the ground they lean over for a better looks and suddenly the air is split in two by their terrified screams........

  Hey Rio
So mom didn't sell the garage ? Why do they call it a garage sale then ? I often wonder about when mom and dad go to the flea market - mom said they don't sell fleas there . . . humans are weird !

Happy Saturday - mom is still remembering last Saturday and all the fun she had :) Today she and daddy went apple picking - and now I'm just waiting for my taste ! I do love apples.

We have a real fall weekend - by tomorrow the temperatures are supposed to drop into the 50's and stay there for the rest of the week, with more rain coming in midweek - Tomorrow is also mom's sister's birthday so the parronts may end up heading out for either lunch or an early dinner.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday - love you all ! Cookie

Helloooooo, Jesse screams in fright as the row boat bounces wildly on the storm tossed lake. The waves reach high over the sides of the row-boats filling them with cold, icy water. The frightened birds yell for help, their voices lost in the crashes of thunder from above.
After what feels like an eternity, the small wooden row-boats bump roughly into the rocky shores of the BC Lake. With a deep sigh of relief everybirdie scrambles to escape from the angry waters, and wind, jumping over the edge quickly, and running for cover in the nearby brush that watches over the normally quiet Lake. Jesse crawls along the beach, counting heads, making certain everybirdie is safely ashore. With so many disappearing he doesn't plan to take any chances at all from here on. Sitting down beside SKY, BB and Jake Jesse rubs his chin as he thinks of the next thing he ought to do. HE frowns sadly, uncertainly etching his handsome face with worry lines.
"I'm not certain where we are?" Jesse says, sneaking a peak out from around the brush he and the others are hankered down behind.
"We aren't far from the Castle. In fact from every point of BC Lake we can see the Castle. We need to get our bearings." BB says with confidence.
"Ok, Jake and I will head up that small hill and get a better idea where we are." Sky says climbing to his feet, with Jake beside him. ' Be right back" he tells BB and Jesse as they head off up the hill.
"You any idea where we are?" Sky asks Jake as they climb the hillside.
"NOPE!" Jake says looking around slowly. " NEVER saw this place before"
Sky takes Apache's binoculars from his jacket pocket and scans the area. " I can't find the Castle. Actually I can't see anything I recognize."
Sky hands Jake the binoculars. HE looks along time, then " whistles softly. Nope, me either. I think if we head towards the west we will find the Castle, or at least something we will remember."
Sky and Jake climb back down to where they'd left Jesse and BB. After a moment of explanation, they decide that they better keep moving. BB agrees that the Castle should lay tot he West. Jesse once more moves down the brushes, stopping to explain the plan to each group of nervous adventurers. He stops where Falco and Boo Boo sit quietly looking rather scared. " I'll get you outta here, and we will find the others. I promise." Falco smiles softly.
"OKAY, everybirdie, let's keep moving. I am sure that if we keep heading WEST we will locate the Castle, or somewhere we will all recognize. We need to hurry, we have to find Sugar, Cori, Pepper, Gus, Snowflake and Cydney."
With much murmuring the tired, wet, scared birdies follow Jesse as he begins to walk towards the West. The group climbs a small hill, coming to rest at the top for a moment. As they reach the summit, the wind fades, the clouds part, and once more the sky shines blue, and golden with the warm sunshine.

Hi everybirdie, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. " SHHHHHH, we don't wanta wake up those crazy trees again."
"Turn three times and head to the East" Jenny-Lynn reads the sign, " what do you suppose this is all about Jesse?"
"HHHHMMM" Jesse rubs his chin, thinking deeply, as he looks around at the land before them, " not too sure but if the sign says head East we better do it." Jesse pulls his compose from his backpack and gets his bearings. " Ok, this way!"
"WAIT!" Chyna yells, "the signs says we have to turn three times first."
Jesse shrugs, shaking his head, "Girls" he thinks to himself. "East is East, but ok" he motions for everybirdie to stand still.
"The sign says we have to turn three times then head to the East" Jesse begins to turn in a 360 degree circle, " One, Two, Three" he stops and waits as the last of the group completes their third turn. "WOW, that makes me dizzy" Jesse giggles as he tries to get his balance.
"Alright, let's go this way. The road is narrow so be careful not to get too close to the trees and bushes as we get down this hill." Jesse strides off, happy to be moving as far away from the Enchanted Forest as he can get. The sun brilliantly shines down upon the birds as they enjoy the walk along the old dirt road heading towards the Castle in the East.
"Look, ahead" Rio says to Jesse, " what's that?" he points to a shiny area off to the side of the road about a quart mile away.
"Apache? Did you bring your binoculars?" Jesse asks
"Yes, of course, can't be a good scout without them" Apache pulls them over his head, and hands them to Jesse. " It's a lake. It must be the BC Lake" he hands the binoculars back to Apache. "we're nearly back tot he Castle" Jesse breathes a sigh of relief. Soon he could get the Macaw Guards and go back to find his two missing friends. His happy thoughts are shattered by a frantic cry.
" Cydney and Snowflake. They're gone" Raffi cries, as he rushes around, searching for them. " Where's Pepper? and Gus?" the others begin a frantic search for their friends. I saw Snowflake and Cydney, over there by that red rock. The boys spread out to search, but not a feather can be found from their missing friends. Tears fill their eyes as they return to the milling group, and tell them their friends have disappeared into thin air.
"We have to get out of here, and back to the Castle. Come on, let's hurry" Jesse leads out in a quick waddle as fast as his legs will carry him. The others scramble to keep up as they continue down the road drawing closer to the Lake. As the walk, the breeze begins to pick up, and clouds begin to blow blocking out the warm sun. Jesse feels a shiver of dread as he rushes towards the East..

Hello, Jesse here today with you next BOTM Adventure POST. " I always liked trees, but now I don't know" "HHHMMM?"
Spot reaches his Poppa Sky's side, " here, you'll need this" Spot hands his Poppa a hatchet.
"Where'd you find that?" Spot points to a rock by a tall Pine tree. It was just sitting there."
Sky grabs the hatchet and chops the limb off the tree. " AAAAHHHHH!" the Tree yells in pain.
"What?" Sky says to Spot who is helping fight off the vine with Poppa Sky;s pocket knife.
"That hurt" the Tree growls angrily. " now I'll show you" the Tree reaches out so quickly that Sky is not ready for the attack. It grabs his leg and pulls him up into the top-most branches, hanging him upside down. BB hears the scream, and rushes out of the safety of the Boulder where her Sky had left her. Others had found the safety also, and hurried to join her. " NO WAIT HERE" she says picking up a large branch lying on the ground. " that's my Mr Sky" she dashes and runs over the snaky vines, and ducks under the limbs reaching out to grab hold of her. She stands below the tree holding her SKY captive, and pulling back she let's the limb swing, slamming a home-run hit on it's trunk. The terrified tree screams in shock. " Let my MR SKY go, NOW!" she orders angrily. The terrified tree watches as she readies for a second hit. With aloud gasp, and thump, Mr Sky is dropped onto the ground at her feet, in a pile of red and green feathers. Seeing Sky is ok, if not embarrassed she orders the tree, " and Cookie too, and any other birdie you have up there to"
One by one they drop onto the soft leaves and grass below. Six birdies jump free and scramble for safety behind the boulder.
"Ok, let's go rescue the others." Sky tells Spot and BB. They work their way from bush and tree to tree. Leaves shaking furiously at them, as they release their bounty. "Where's Jesse?" Spot asks once the others were in safety. I haven't seen him yet. JESSE?" Spot listens carefully. "Hear that?" he asks BB
"This way" Spot leads the rescuers towards the source of the muffled sound. There, lying rolled in Ivy and wild grape vines with only his bright yellow head feathers showing was his Uncle Jesse. " et eeee utta ere." Spot begins to carefully cut the twined vines and Ivy free, making sure not to cut Uncle Jesse in the process. " Ah, thanks Spot, I was starting to loose consciousness."
Jesse scrambles free of the vines, panting. HE looks around at the trees, now standing quietly, leaves stirring gently in the soft, autumn breeze, like a man sleeping in the sun. " What just happened?" he says out loud.
" We best be gettin' outta here quick, before these crazy trees wake up." Jesse waves the others onwards, as he stand watch until the last one is clear of the " Enchanted Forest". He hurriedly takes the lead once more, as the group climbs a hill. At the peak, a sign reads; turn three times and head to the East.

  October BOTM POST number seven
Hello everybirdie. Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure Post. I know right now, I sure wish I'd brought my cell phone with me.
Jesse and Jake head across the room, following the sound of the voice, with Kiddo and Sweetpepper joining them.
"Let's grab hold and pull." The birds grip the handle with all their strength, " One, TWO, THREE!" Jesse yells and they tug as hard as they can. They pull, and pull, with all their might. Suddenly, the handle gives, and a small door springs open in the wall. " We did it, we got it open" Picabo calls out happily, as sunlight beams in through the opening. "We're free"
Jesse smiles, happy to think that they would be out in the sunlight in a minute, and soon the Castle macaw Guards would be there to help find his friends Cori and Sugar."I bet their already outside ready to jump out and frighten us as we step into the sunlight." he thinks to himself as he starts to climb through the small door.
"Come on,it's beautiful outside. I'm glad to be free to that corn maze for good." Jesse calls over his shoulder as he steps into the open again. The trees look pretty with all their colorful leaves stirring in the gentle breeze.
Quickly the others rush out through the small door and shake their feathers to calm themselves, after being in the pitch dark, dusty room. They smile as the sunlight beams onto them, and the soft breeze stirs the leaves on the ground around their feet. They start off in the direction of the Castle, looking for help in locating their missing friends. They hadn't gone very far at all when suddenly a terrified scream rose from amongst them. Every head snaps round just in time to see Cookie disappearing into the leaves of a nearby tree. The birdies yell in fright, as the trees and bushes around them spring to life, branches and limbs reaching out to catch hold of them, as they dart and twist to get free. Screams shake the air as birdies are gripped by the leaves and twigs, pulled high up into the air.
"Jesse" Elvis yells, as he dashes to stay free of a vine, trying to wrap around his foot. " help, we gotta save the others"
Elvis, leaps just in time and the vine snakes back into the darkness below the tall Oak tree nearby.
Sky dodges a limb, grabbing BB by the waist and hurrying behind a large boulder away from the trees. " You stay here, I'm going to save our friend Cookie. Sky hops,and jumps vines and limbs that fly forwards to capture him, as he works towards the tree where Cookie is yelling for help. " I'm here buddy." Sky ducks as a branch reaches for his head. " That's it. Enough" he takes out his pocket knife and cuts the vine around his foot, and snips the end of the branch as it reaches forward once more.

Columbus Day :

IN 1492

In fourteen hundred ninety-two
Columbus sailed the ocean blue.

He had three ships and left from Spain;
He sailed through sunshine, wind and rain.

He sailed by night; he sailed by day;
He used the stars to find his way.

A compass also helped him know
How to find the way to go.

Ninety sailors were on board;
Some men worked while others snored.

Then the workers went to sleep;
And others watched the ocean deep.

Day after day they looked for land;
They dreamed of trees and rocks and sand.

October 12 their dream came true,
You never saw a happier crew

Love Cookie

Come visit me, Cookie waiting for Santa Bird, BC Library Now Open & Fly with the angels my Sally.

  October BOTM POST number six
Happy Sunday to all my BC friends. I hope you all are having an enjoyable weekend. Thank you to each of my friends for their votes, messages and encouragement. I hope your ready for today's adventure in the Corn Maze.
"AUHHHHHH!" Sky coughs, as dusty air fills the room. "What is that awful smell? "
"I don't know buddy, but it wasn't me who did it." Jake laughs loudly, sneezing as the dust swirls and turns in clouds around them. How can that dust blow everywhere when we haven't moved?"
Looking from one to the other, their eyes big. One by one the group files into the stinky, dusty room and crowds together in the damp, blackness. "Everyone here?" Jesse asks
The room is alive with answers. " CORI? SUGAR?" No answer comes.
" Has anybird seen Cori or Sugar?" Jesse questions fearful of what might have become of them in the darkness
" After a moment of puzzled questions and answers, " NO, last time I saw Sugar or Cori was when we were by that hole in the wall, where the maggots where." Pookie and Laka reply. Laka's pretty face pales at the thought of what might have happened to her friends.
"I'll go back and look for them" Raffi says, Cinn-A-Bunn joining him, as they lave the room and feel their way back down the wall. Sky and Jesse rush to catch up, as the four boys search for their missing friends. In the gloomy room, the others stand restlessly waiting. Fearing what fate might have befallen their missing companions.
"We should have gotten to the hole by now. It wasn't this far Jesse" Cinny says
"Yeah, where did the hole go?" Raffi asks concern in his voice, it should have been back a ways in the other direction. " Let's go back, we must have missed it somehow." The four boys turn and retrace their steps. Arriving at the door frame once more they step inside. " DID they show back up?" Jesse asks hopefully. When he hears that negative responses he swallows the lump in his throat.
" I say we go onwards, get outside and go get the Castle Guards to help search. They likely found a way out and are waiting to scare us when we step out the door." BB says, looking at Sky her eyes filled with tears. " I know they're ok, you'll see" Sky pulls her close and hugs her tightly, " we'll find them sweetheart."
"Let's all check out this room carefully for the way out. Stay close so you can feel each others wings and us your feet and wings to feel for the door out of here." Jesse instructs the group. They make their way to the walls, and start to run their wing tips over the icy surface.
"I found something right here" Picabo says, touching a handle made of wood, attached to the wall in front of him. " It must be a trap door outside."
