Mom had always wanted a parrot, and if she got one, it's name would be Martini. She went to a local pet store with some friends and saw me. She asked for me to be taken out of the cage I was in and said "Hello Martini". I stepped on to her hand and it it was love at first sight! (:>.

  Hello My Sweet~
First, how about a big warm hug to ward away the chill that seems to be hanging around this winter. Mercy, has it every been a frigid winter. I heard mom say it was -13° this morning just before I woke up. That's dreadfully cold. At least the sun shone all day which helped make it seem a little warmer. It snowed on Thursday; not much, but enough to cover everything in white again. There may be more on the way, or so I've heard. Doesn't matter to me. I'm happy in my little world, keeping an eye on Jensen and Zoren, Kirby and his cohorts. Today though I hung out in Alfie's cage which was moved into the bay window's sunshine. I took a bath in his water dish then fished through the catch dish below his foraging toy for little morsels he'd dropped. After a while tho I was ready to go to my room so I hollered and hollered until mom got the message. The reason I went into the big bird room in the first place was to get my picture taken to show you the additional yellow on my wings. Now mind you, I'm still not as bright as you are, but there's definitely a difference as you can see by comparing the first gallery picture (one of my first BC photos) to the newest ones taken today. The profile picture was also taken today, while I was in Alfie's cage in the sunlight. In all honesty, I think the BC does something funny to our photos after we download them; the colors look sort of weird compared to how they look on our computer. Oh well, hopefully you'll get a bit of an idea how my yellow feathers look now.

Thanks for those kisses you send me. They inspire the sweetest dreams. And I assure you, we're always in a warmer place in my dreams!

With love, always ~

Your Riza~Girl •v•

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a lovely day! I had a lovely cranberry scone for breakfast so it's been a great day so far! The gardeners are here but since it's raining they are not going to get much done! I suppose that it will be all bush trimming and sweeping today so it won't be too interesting, Suppose I'll have to find someone else to yell at today!
Mom is cleaning today so I will just supervise and wait for the cooking to start and see what is on the menu for the day!
I do hope you enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a great day! Dad is back on the road and it's not New Mexico he was going to, it Colorado! Different story all together. Mom could have sworn he said New Mexico but he tells her he told her it was Pueblo which is in Colorado! Well he got to the yard and they don't think he can make it all the way to Colorado on time so now he is going to Salt Lake City! Good news is that most of the mountain passes between here and there are bare and dry. There is a storm blowing in today but it's mostly wind and it's just not cold enough to snow. We did put the fireplace on for a bit this morning just to warm the room up for me.
Mom is finishing up the laundry and then she'll head off to bed. We had a great weekend but now it's time for the workweek to start! I wish I could be at the Milonga tonight but mom will be sleeping so I won't have a typist! I think I have only made it to one but I always go back on Sunday morning and read all about it!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! I finally have some time to get a note out! Dad has been home for a few days and is now getting ready to head out again. He was suppose to go tomorrow but there might be snow in the mountains tomorrow so he is getting a head start to avoid the snow!
Just the usual stuff going on around here. Lots of cleaning up and boring stuff like that. I have kept myself busy with toys and snacks and lots of play time with mom.
I hope your night is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug! Hope you are staying warm! Spring is only 27 days away!

  Happy Valentines Day My Darling Martini!
XOXOXOXOXXXX !!!!

Those were all for the flowers you've sent me. They're beautiful and smell so sweet. I want to nibble on them but am resisting as I really want to have them to look at. I'm going to be smiling every time I do, thinking of you and how lucky I am to be your special girl.

It sounds dreadfully cold at your place. It's been horrifically windy here today but at least it's 14° and not just 4. That's bitter cold. You'll be snuggling in close in your heart tent tonight! Maybe your dreams will be of springtime sunshine and perhaps a stroll through the park with me by your side. Wouldn't that be wonderful.

Thank you for making my Valentine's Day extra extra special.
I love you Martini.

Always yours ~
Riza

Happy Valentine's day! Mom is starts her workweek tonight so we are having a little celebration for lunch! There are some yummy apple muffins just waiting for this little zon to sink her beak into them!
We are getting some cooking done and some laundry too. We never seem to run out of laundry for some reason! The dog is going to get another bath and then mom will be off to bed and I'll be off to the night cage to destroy another toy!
Enjoy your day!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you guys are having a great day! Lots of cleaning going on this morning. Mom wishes she did not have to work tonight so she could get more done. She'll be off tomorrow night so the chores will continue tomorrow. Mom will come home and take a nap in the morning and then get me my toast!! She thinks she will go to Ross tomorrow to buy some new clothes. Dad gave her a gift card for Christmas and told her that her clothes were mostly junk and she needed some new stuff! I guess you can tell mom doesn't like clothes shopping much!
Dad has been in a motel in Phoenix for 3 days. He is really bored and wants to get back out on the road. He has his laptop with him and can watch TV. There is a Jack in the Box and a Waffle House within walking distance but I think he is tired of them. The satellite system broke and it is taking them forever to get it fixed. His terminal up here is complaining to the shop in Phoenix because they are taking so long. They told dad it should be done today but if it's not done by 6pm he will be in the motel for another night.
Mom and Jennifer went over to the dollar store and bought some cards and candies for the kids at the daycare. They are having a Valentine's party tomorrow. The kids decorated paper lunch sacks and all the candy will go into their bags!
I think they are going to have lots of fun!
I hope you have lots of fun today!! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

I'd loooooooove to be your Valentine! Thank you for wanting me to be yours. Sweetest thought in the world, being your girl on this holiday of Love.

I haven't got that new picture to share yet. I posed the other day but the light was lousy so my colors didn't show up very well. I'll keep trying. When mom says "smile" I'll be thinking of you and how sweet you are to me.

The other day I managed to get myself stuck on the window ledge. I can fly down but I can't fly back up so I had to sit there and wait until mom came back into the room. She was gone long enough for me to whittle a nice bunch of beak marks in the wood trim. Hee hee. Thinking she'd give me a way to get myself back up to my perches, mom used a long stick to make a bridge. But I've always hated that stick (it's used to get birds to "step up" on when they're out of reach in the big bird room) so I started attacking it right away. I worked like crazy to get that ugly stick off my perch, jabbing at it, biting it, trying to throw it away. I heard mom chuckling at my efforts. I bet she figured I'd at least be entertained and definitely get some exercise in the process. It didn't take me but a minute to knock that stick down. Ha! And then of course I ended up back on the window ledge a little latter and sort of wished I had that stick to climb back up on. Silly me.

Smiling because you love me ~
Yours Always,
Riza

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a great day! I heard that BC was all messed up this morning! They usually do that on Sunday mornings but maybe they were busy yesterday!
The school bus was late this morning!!! I know what you are thinking~~Sugar has no little kids in her house so why is she worried about the school bus being late??
Well, the little kids love to stand in the driveway while waiting for the school bus and pump their arms up and down! This causes the many big rigs going down our street to honk their loud honking horns!!!! A few times is cute but when the school bus is 8 minutes late, you get it 22 times! It quit being cute after the 3rd time! Lets hope Mr. Bus Driver will be much more punctual tomorrow! Sugar will be checking up on him!!!!!!
Ian worked his first ever overnight last night. He came right home and went to sleep!HAHAHAHAHAHA Mom has already cleaned the carpet in the living room, mopped the dining room and done 2 loads of laundry! She would love to come home and go to sleep but I am use to my schedule and need to have my toast and my apples and tell mom all about what went on while she was at work! Since we are all sleeping while she is at work, there usually isn't much to tell!
I hope your day is just wonderful!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a great day!
The weather has been so mild here that the frogs think it's time to get out and do come croaking!! I think there were a gazillion of them last night!! The moat is filled up from all the rain we have had and they were having a croaking party down there! The sparrows were sitting on the balcony this morning too. The trees have not started blooming so it's not really spring but is sure sounded like it last night!hehehehehe
We are going to get some cooking done today and mom has to go get Merlin more food and litter. There will be the usual laundry and mom is going to clean out the fridge too. We still have to figure out where to put the stuff they bought at Costco yesterday.
I hope your day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a great day! I am supervising laundry today! It's a rough job but some bird has to do it! I really don't know what mom would do without me here to yell and fuss while she is trying to get chores done! I really do think it makes her move faster!hahahahahahaha
Well the Seahawks have shown us how to win a game in 3 minutes and now how to lose one in 26 seconds! They are still my team, I am still a 12th bird and I really am very proud of all their achievements this year! I hope they are proud of themselves too and just move on!
One very nice story is that Chris Pratt~from Seattle and the star of Guardians of the Galaxy~and Chris Evans~from Boston and is Captain America~made a bet. If the Hawks won Chris Evans would visit Children's Hospital in Seattle dressed as Captain America! If the Patriot won Chris Pratt would visit a charity in Boston dressed as Star Lord! Even thought the Patriots won, Chris Evans is coming to Children' Hospital Seattle!! They are both really good guys! Those kid's are going to be so excited!
Punxsutawney Phil says there will be 6 more weeks of winter! I really don't think that was a hard call at all!!! Did you know that in the old days the use to eat the groundhog! Is that gross or what???? ICK! The poor groundhog and really?? Who eats groundhogs? Guess they didn't have McDonalds back then!hahahahahaha
I hope your day is just fabulous!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you had a wonderful day! It was pretty nice around here. The fog never completely burned off but it wasn't too bad. Mom had to go get her drivers license renewed but it only took her about half an hour. She went to the library after and got me a lovely stack of new books to read.
Mom did her taxes tonight so that's all done. She is never sure if she understands everything. She used Turbo Tax so they sort of do the whole thing for you. It was free last year but she had to pay for it this year. Like I said, she doesn't understand most of it but it's done!
We did more cleaning today since it's mom's day off and she tries to get the major stuff done on Fridays. Tomorrow we will get some meals made ahead of time and decide on what she is going to buy for our Superbowl/Puppy bowl party. Mom will be sleeping when the Superbowl starts but she'll know when they win because of all the noise around here! It was the same way last year. We still celebrate and enjoy the Puppy bowl!
I hope you have a lovely evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Martini!
Thank you for the warm, wonderful kisses and all those hugs too. You know they're what keep me warm and happy through these long winter nights. I just loved hearing about your adventures while Aunt Lisa was visiting. I can just imagine how cute you looking running across the floor, then hiding under the table. I think you're a good bird for eventually coming back out though. Sounds like you were just ready to do something different and have a little extra fun.

I've been having a grand time chewing on a wooden perch that's been a part of my cage arrangement for years. Why all of a sudden I've decided to whittle it down to nearly nothing, I have no idea but it's been a good bit of exercise. The pile of toothpicks on the floor of the cage is something I'm quite proud of too. They're mixed in with all the newly shredded paper. Mercy! What a beautiful mess!

I wonder if you've gotten your snow storm already or if it's yet to come. The sun was bright and shiny all day t'day which is something out of the norm. It continues to be gray and cloudy most of the time which makes me feel so sleepy and bored. Sunshine makes me feel alive and excited (and loud, mom says). I had lots to squawk about today, that's for sure. I'm wanting to get a new picture taken so you can see all the yellow that's on my wings now. The other day while sitting on mom's shoulder while she was washing birdie dishes I noticed in the mirror that there seems to be less green. I'm so excited about being more of a Sunny than a Jenday! Nothing against Jensen, but if you're suppose to be a Sun Conure, you'd really like to be all bright and yellow! I'll see if I can't have a new picture to share the next time I come by for a visit.

Until then, you keep warm and safe.
Sharin' some love~~~
XOXOXOX

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Mom spent way too much time running around today and I didn't like it at all. Everyone else had to go to work and all at different times. Dad was going to leave early but they changed his pick up time. He was gone for an hour and a half this morning and told mom he was going to get some groceries for the truck. He never made it so mom took him to the market before she took him to the truck! Just crazy today and it didn't seem like a day off for mom at all!
The good news is that the NFL said that Taima can lead the Seahawks out of the tunnel for the Superbowl! YAY! I don't know what the Seahawks would do without him! He is a very important member of the team! Even people who don't like the Seahawks have to admit that Taima is the coolest mascot in the entire NFL!
Dad tried putting the old phone, that went through the washer, in a bag of rice to see if it would dry out that way but so far it still won't turn on. I don't suppose it matters now since he has the new one.
I hope your evening is a relaxing one! Mom and I certainly plan on one!

  Hi ya Martini~
I hope you guys are having a great day! It's been boring around here but that is just fine with me. Mom worked last night and now we have our weekend again! I think she should take 3 days off every week!!
Dad washed his $300 Galaxy phone in the washing machine last night! Guess what? It doesn't work anymore!hahahahaha He is a bigger dork than mom is and that's saying something! He really can't function without his phone. It's a very sad, sad thing!hehehehehehe
He went by Costco and got another one. Let's hope he doesn't wash this one! He got the warranty on it but I do not think it will cover things done to it by dumb users!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you had a fantastic day! We did!! Now that mom's heart rate is back to an acceptable level I am having her blog for me! For a few minutes there I thought I was going to have to perform parrot resuscitation on her! That is when you bite them really hard to bring them back for the edge of hysteria!hahahaha HEY! It works!
What a great game between two awesome teams! The Packers should be very proud of themselves! This is what a championship game should look like! Now we have to see if it's the Colts or the Patriots who will be joining us in Arizona!
The day started out crazy so it is appropriate that it continued to be a crazy Sunday!
Jennifer was burning a candle in her room. She keeps the door closed so that no smoke comes out but she had her window open and the wind was blowing so some of the smoke blew into the hallway ans set off the smoke alarm! The dog freaked out and peed all the way down the hallway! I was screeching and it was pandemonium around here! Mom calmed me down and cleaned up after Mandy and gave us all snacks! We are hoping for a nice quiet evening!
I hope you have a great evening too!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Happy TGI Blue Friday! There are lots of events going on up here before the big game on Sunday. It is going to be an exciting weekend up here!
Jennifer's boss sold her playoff tickets for $500 a piece!!! She is a season ticket holder so they always get a chance to buy their seats first. She is going to use the money to buy plane tickets to Arizona to see the Superbowl! She is that confident that the Seahawks are going to the Superbowl again! I must say that I agree with her! GO HAWKS!!!
It's a pretty quiet day around here. Everyone else is at work and when Ian gets off he is going to take the Sounder train up to Seattle to visit with his friends again. The one who lives in Pennsylvania is going home tomorrow.
Me and mom are going to continue with cleaning and do some cooking. Mom is off for 3 days after Saturday night so we don't need to cook too many meals. I think baking some cornbread would be an excellent idea!!
I hope your day is just perfect!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

What timing, that you and I both managed to write each other a note today. All day I squawked at my mom about getting to come to your page and leave you a little love in a note. The day's nearly gone but I've made it here!

So glad to know your Mama and the family made it back safely from their holiday travels and that you survived entertaining yourself for a little while. I bet everyone's relieved to have all the collect paperwork done. Maybe now you can get that nap on your Mama's knee I know you like so well.

The weather here has been very winter-like. One day was so cold and the wind so nasty, it was hard to keep even my little bird room warm enough. A second heater was brought in and cranked on high to ward off the chill. The wind was coming from the south which is the direction my window faces. Everything seemed to be frozen that day. It's suppose to be -9° tonight but I don't think the wind's going to howl this time. I'll be snuggled in behind my sleepy hut, up against the soft fleecy felt that hangs on the back of my cage, and of course dreaming of you. I hate to say it but spring is yet a long time away. I'm glad your there to keep your Mama company and surround her with beautiful tropical colors!

Thank you so much coming by to visit me. It's made my day just as getting to write to you has.

Adoring you still ...
Yours Always,
Riza

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!!
You will not believe what happened here last night! Mom was cleaning up the kitchen and put the trash bag out on the balcony. Sneaky Merlin went out there without mom knowing and jumped over the balcony!! He is perfectly fine, which is a miracle, but mom says unless he has his harness and leash on he is never going out there again!
She noticed he was missing and went to check the balcony and didn't see him. She checked the whole house out and he was no where to be found. She looked over the balcony but did not see him. She grabbed her jacket and went around the building, climbed down the embankment, sloshes through the moat and climbed up the wall to get to the downstairs neighbors patio. She saw Merlin run onto the patio and called to him. He came right to her! She bundled him up in her coat and brought him back home! She was muddy and banged her knee while climbing the wall but at least Merlin was okay. She checked every inch of that cat and he is just fine! Mom explained to him that cat do not really have 9 lives! He stuck to her like velcro for the rest of the night. Just before we went to bed, he was at the door howling to go out! Not too smart, is he? He sure is one lucky cat because it was only a few minutes between the time mom put the trash bag out and going downstairs to find him! If he had done that when mom wasn't here, no one else would have noticed him gone!
Have a fabulous evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a great day! I apologize for the boring
C/P but things have been crazy around here for the past few days. Getting dad ready to head out is always crazy! He always thinks of something he wants to get before he goes and then leaves stuff behind as well! He'll be having to get himself a new soup bowl and some coffee creamer because they are both sitting on the kitchen counter!hahahahahahaha
There has been the usual clean up after the dog and giving her a bath too! She is doing pretty well but manages to pee off the edges of the wee wee pads! Mom has 4 of them taped together but she still manages to miss part of it! She is still happy and eating up a storm so this is not such a big thing to deal with. It's just takes some time!
This morning we were all set to get my notes out when Ian asked to use the computer. Something happened to his and he needed to download something to fix it! It took an hour!
Right when mom sat down at the computer, I screamed! Mom got me out of the cage and checked me out! I was chewing up wood and she was afraid I had hurt my beak. I let her check out the beak and look at my tongue but there was no way I was going to let her touch it!! Who knows where those hands have been!!
Anyway, nothing seems to be damaged but I insisted on sitting on mom's lap for a long time! I had a fright and I needed to be fussed over! I'm back in the play cage now, having an apple and a goldfish cracker! Perhaps tomorrow will be a bit quieter and I can get a better note out! I just don't want any bird to think I have forgotten them! Never gonna happen!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you had a wonderful day and I hope your Christmas was fabulous!
Mom got home late from work this morning so my schedule was all off! At first I was pretty upset but it turned out okay since mom doesn't have to work tonight and spent lots of time with me.
There were lots of people at the store very early today. All the Christmas stuff was 75% off so they were grabbing stuff right and left! Mom managed to grab the cards for next year and two really nice shopping bags. They have Christmas pictures on them but who cares! One of them will be our new book bag since they are water proof. The old one is starting to rip on the bottom!
There was no traffic to report on the radio news show this morning so they were reporting when each mall was going to open!!! You would think everyone would be tired of shopping at this point but it certainly didn't look that way! Ian was suppose to work 4 hours today but he ended up staying for 8 since it was so busy. All those little kids who got gift cards could not wait to get to Toys R Us and find a new treasure! It's always exciting when they have their own money to spend!
Enjoy your evening and I hope it's just perfect!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

PS Chipper made 10K today so I hope you will congratulate her if you haven't already!! Thanks!

  Merry Christmas My Sweet Martini
I hope Christmas Day is extra special for you in lots of ways. I know you'll be missing your Mom (you already are, I'm sure, even as I write this) but I also know you'll be happy to hang out with Aunt Lisa too. I wish I could come keep you company. I'd say come here to my house but it'd be a whole lot more peaceful at your place. :)

The other evening I was sitting on mom's shoulder and just staring at the Christmas tree's lights. They sure are pretty. There's lots of things on that tree I know I'd have a riot chewing up. Something tells me tho that I'd be in trouble if I tried to beak something. My luck, I'd accidentally nibble on a power line and get myself shocked! Don't want to do that.

I'll be dreaming of you and how cute you'd look under the mistletoe.

Kisses and more kisses~

  Hi Martini
I hope you have a very Merry Christmas too!
Sorry for the short blog today. Mom, her daughter, her sister, and her niece baked all the Italian goodies today, and did the peanut butter blossom cookies, too. Mom is totally wiped out, and it's nearly dinner time. She had hoped to do some laundry, but that's not gonna happen. Maybe tomorrow... Anyway I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Martini
I wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas and a safe drive. That's too bad that you couldn't go too.

It was clean Chyna's condo day. I don't like that! I worked hard to get it that way.
At least we saw the sun again today! Looks like 3 more days of partial sun and then 3 days of snow. It will even snow on Christmas.
Better get the peppermint hot chocolate ready.
Hugs

  Hi ya Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I hope the family has a great Christmas! Do you get to go too???
Has "that boy" picked a college yet? It must be a very hard thing to do especially if you have lots of options. Mom went to school near where she lived because she couldn't afford to go out of state way, way back then!
That black bird is still in the store. They hired a guy to bring a cage in to try to trap him but he doesn't seem to be interested in what is in it! Mom told them they should try millet or peanuts! They put it up on a rack where the indoor hanging plants are since that is where he is hanging out. There is an indoor fountain so he is staying close to that. Mom was looking at him and he was clicking at her. She clicked back to him but I guess her black bird speak is not good cause he just ignored her! She had the freight guys leave the garden doors open for a while but he doesn't seem interested in going out. He knows where the bird seed is in the garden and in the pet center so I guess he has figured out a way to eat. Hopefully when the store is full of people today he will go into the cage so they can take him outside.
You all have a very Happy Christmas!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love ya ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Martini~
I hope your day was just perfect! We had some very dark clouds to the west but sunshine to the east! It looked very pretty. We didn't do a whole lot today. Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night and we have lots to get done around the house. Dad will be home Wednesday and he gets to stay home until Christmas is over!!
Mom went to the mall today to the Hallmark store to get Ian an ornament. She got him the Spiderman one this year. Mom has been buying him a Christmas ornament every year since he was born. This will be ornament #32! He has a strange collection of book characters, Godzilla, spaceships and action figures! The very first one was the Poky Little Puppy! That was his favorite book at the time!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a great day! We've had no rain and the wind has died down too. It is a bit cooler but it's more like it should be this time of the year!
There was a blackbird running around the furniture pad at mom's store this morning. Someone left the garden doors open and he came on in!! Mom tried to get him to come to her but he just hid around the back of an ottoman. She called her manager and told him that the bird was there and he told her that he had come in the day before. Her manager chased him around for half an hour but couldn't catch him. Mom thought about the fishing nets in the sporting goods department but the mesh is too big and she doesn't want him hurt. Mom suggested they make a trail of seed to the garden door. If he has been in the store for a day he must be hungry. There is a fountain in the indoor garden so he had access to water at least. Mom will find out tonight if they managed to get him out.

There are only 11 more ads until Christmas!hahaha Of course they are going to do an ad the day after also so mom will have to be there at midnight. They have tons of wrapping paper so everyone will probably be in for that. It will get slower after a few weeks. They have a storage event and early tax time and then it will be Valentine's Day! They already have throws, blankets, pillows and decor for Valentine's Day! At least it's all in the stockroom and not out on the floor!
I hope you enjoy your day!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Martini
Well, the furnace saga has its happy ending. Not only is the new furnace efficient, it's quiet! Mom loves that you can barely hear it coming on, not like the old one that really needed a muffler to keep the noise down.
Mom did her lecture at the museum today, talked about as many Arctic birds and mammals as she researched, and got done in 65 minutes! She was trying to keep it to an hour, because the teacher requested it. They went through Polar World, Bird Hall, North American Mammals and what's called the 'Dark Hall' on the first floor. That's an area where old exhibits are, not lit up any more, but there are flashlights provided for kids to explore the dark exhibits. Some of the class didn't even know about that spot! Mom knew there were blue geese, eider ducks, and ravens there, though, and she wanted to show everyone where to find them.
I hope you are having a good day. We will probably be in lockdown for the day, because mom has to go to the Waterfront to wrap gifts for the wildlife center from 4 to 8. I bet by the time she gets home, she'll just eat, let the dogs out, and give us a quick scritch before heading off to bed.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Martini
Mom had to drive to town for a dentist appointment today. The highway was fine but, the side roads are ice.
We have 3 more gifts to arrive in the mail. Then mom can wrap them and be done. She has to finish the decorating on Friday .... then we can relax.
The BC has been very slow and jumpy for us with the squawk page of course.
We had another day with some sun and no snow. What is going on? I'm liking this! Our roads are still ice but the highway is ok.
Today, I helped mom with the Christmas cards. She says I did a good job. I stepped on each one ... hehehe.
Hugs

  Hi Martini
They are from Tyler County, WV. Mom doesn't know where that is, though, she's only ever been to Oglebay and Wheeling.
The guys are here putting in the new furnace, but the house is cool. It's a good thing mom got that radiator for us to use, it's come in handy today.
Mom will be home most of the day, at least until those guys are done. She does have to run to the center and pick up some signage for her stint at gift wrapping tomorrow on the Waterfront. She is hoping the space is warm, at least. It's the old Ambercrombie and Fitch storefront, so maybe there will be at least minimum heat. Tomorrow is also her lecture at the museum. She ran around yesterday after her tours so she could be sure to tell the new docents where to find each of the mammals and birds she will talk about. The lecture is in Polar World, but mom is hoping they will have time to go to Bird Hall, too.
The KB has been jumping, and there are still movies and cartoons to watch today! Let's see some classics today, and finish with the cartoons tomorrow.
I hope you are having a good day, and getting lots of love. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Martini
Nobody knows what happened to that turtle's feet. He was all healed with just stumps when he got to the wildlife center. He is getting along well, though, and seems to like it there.
Yesterday mom sent her outline of her lecture to the museum to get printed since our printer is still offline. It was in her mailbox this morning! What a nice person her boss is to have that done so fast. Mom did 3 tours today, one with K (like herding cats), and 2 with 11th graders from West Virginia. Those groups were making a day of it in Oakland. They came from the nationality rooms at Pitt, did an art and natural history tour, then were going to Phipps Conservatory to see the Christmas flower show. By the time mom did the second group, the kids were hungry, so mom hopes their teachers blocked some time for lunch in all that running around! I bet they will all sleep in the buses on the way back to W. Virginia.
Mom thinks all the baking supplies are in the house at last. Of course, that's only until she starts baking and finds out she needs something else...
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Falco

Always good to hear from you. Are you ready for the holidays? We will be all set by Friday ... finally.
Let it snow let it snow let it snow ... just sitting on my perch in my footie pj's enjoying a cup of peppermint hot chocolate. It's nice to sit here with only the Christmas lights on. It's only two more weeks to Christmas Eve! I wrote my letter to Santa Bird tonight. And I'm trying to be a good birdie. Have a good night.

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's windy, wet and dreary here but that is the way it is this time of the year up here. I am enjoying seeing the new Snowmen flags flying out in front of our building. This is the first time the complex has put a seasonal flag out there! Looks great!
We did some Christmas cards this morning but there is still Autumn decorations up! I think mom needs to get a move on and change it out! She put some Christmas music on the computer while we were doing cards and I enjoyed that!
Has "that boy" decided where he wants to go to school? It must be so exciting to be planning it all! We hope wherever he picks that he will have a great time and a very rewarding experience.
Guardians of the Galaxy came out today and I can't wait to see it! Mom says she thinks it's just my kind of movie! Must be lots of stuff blowing up in it then!!! Ian is going to buy it when he gets to work, but he doesn't get off until 11:30 tonight and I'll be in bed by then!!! I guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow to see it!
So you don't like the new cage much? I was pretty good about the night cage when I first got it and the play cage too. I was in a carrier for 2 days before I got the night cage so I was just happy to have a cage!hehehehehe I love the play cage. It is a macaw cage and I have tons for room to destroy toys and have snacks! Mom has a hard time getting me out of it!
I hope your day is just perfect! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Martini~
I hope you had a wonderful day! It was pretty nice here. I am on my second toy in a week and had a great time making a lovely pile of wood at the bottom of my play cage! Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night so she took a nap and then had to go to the bank. She and Ian are giving Jennifer a new Kindle for Christmas and she wanted to use dad's account because he gets free shipping on Amazon. I think Jennifer is going to be very surprised!
I got squawked again yesterday morning and couldn't get back on until last night! It keeps happening on Sundays!! I have no idea how long it stays that way since mom had to work last night so she had to give up and go to sleep! I'm so sorry I didn't get by! I thought they took weekends off!hahahahaha I think they should take the weekends off!!
We are watching a movie while I get my notes done then it will be off to bed! I don't know why mom gets so happy about going to sleep! I'd rather stay up all night and play!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Lots of cleaning and some cooking going on here. Kind of boring really but I have a new toy in the play cage to keep me occupied.
Mom put the Trans Siberian Orchestra CD on for us to listen to. She just love the Christmas Canon. She love the Canon and this version of it is very beautiful! I'm enjoying it. The new computer does not have the same music program as the old one so mom has not figured out how to get more music on her MP3 player! Ian gave mom his old IPod since he got a smart phone and it does everything the Ipod does. Now mom has to figure out how to use it! She can turn it on and off! So far that's about it!Hahahahahaha It's rather embarrassing to have a mom who is so clueless when it comes to technology!
You enjoy your day and I do hope it's perfect!

I hope you had a wonderful day. It's been crazy here and I am so sorry I have not been able to get notes out like I should! I would not want you to think you are not important to me because that is not true!!
You know our dog Mandy is very old now and can no longer go up or down the stairs anymore. Mom got the wee wee pads and put them all over the balcony but Mandy has been stubborn about them! She has hip dysplasia so she tends to slip a lot. She has figured out what the pads are for at least!
When mom gets home in the mornings Mandy is so excited to see her that she just pees wherever she is! Mom has been spending a whole bunch of time mopping floors, cleaning the carpet and washing blanket and towels which has left me very little time for the BC! Mom just finished working 8 days straight too!
Mom is going to put diapers on Mandy at night now. It's easier to give her a bath everyday then it is to do all this cleaning. The warm baths seems to help her too!
Everything is just fine here. We had 3 very cold days but the clouds rolled back in today and it's warmed up! I have been busy with chewing up wood and supervising the chores! It's a nice way to spend the day!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  *Happy**Thanksgiving**
... to you and your wonderful family, Martini. I hope it was a sweet day of family time and celebration of blessings and love. Not much was unusual here as there were no guests for special meal which meant us birds got to hang out instead of being advised to entertain ourselves quietly. That's always so boring! I had a wonderful time stocking Kelly and making her stay on the top of her cage. The fun ended when I got tucked in my cage for a time out but that was okay because I was given a thick stack of newspapers to shred. Love doing that. Later I was back out of my little time-out session and had a go at dismantling one of those braided sea-grass mats. I'm always so proud of the mess I can make on the floor with just a little bit of beak work on those things.

I wonder what you did for the festive day. Hopefully the family was home with you, but if they were away, I know you had a good time hiding out under the papers and keeping an eye out for Aunt Lisa's arrival. Do you by chance have a special hut for the turkey holiday?

I'm so very thankful for your friendship and the special hugs and conure kisses you have to share with me. Leaving some of mine for you!
