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 Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!
The new computer is up and running. Dad put Window 8 on it so mom is scrolling around like a lost puppy!! She has pretty much figured our how to get to where she wants to go so that is all that matters. The living room still looks like we've been robbed but mom and I will be working on that today.
I left the room when dad was building it because there was just too much stuff and I was getting very upset! He shoved the old computer and monitor in front of my playcage!! That was the last straw so I went to climb around my night cage and clear the dresser off for mom! I even shoved my Hello Kitty lunch boxes off! I know it was a big help!
Mom's uncle does Ancestry research and someone sent him pictures of the graves of mom's Great Grandma and Grandpa. They are in upstate New York by Medina. Mom went there when she was a little kid but doesn't really remember much. It was very cool to see it now though.
I hope you enjoy your day! I'm off to help clean the living room up! We can't even turn the fireplace on at the moment because of all the stuff that is in front of it! It has gotten colder here in the last few days so we might actually need it!!

It's raining, It's pouring
My mommy is boring!
hahahahahaha I've always wanted to sing that song for you!!

Yep! It's raining a whole bunch today. It finally feels like Autumn in the Northwest! Mom grabbed an umbrella when she took Mandy out this morning because she doesn't move very quickly anymore and mom figured she would be drenched by the time she was done. Well mom gets to the bottom on the stairs and opens up the umbrella and the handle fell right to the ground!! Mom shoved it back in and held it over Mandy. She stayed pretty dry but mom was wet! We have another umbrella that is still in it's package so mom has one to use for the dog. Most people up here don't bother with them at all!

I hope your day is just perfect and lots of fun too! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!

  Hello Martini!
Your bad girl here with a quick Friday morning note. I loved reading about how things are different in and around your cage which may be the reason you're behaving a little "conure-like". Change does bring about some worthy squawking, doesn't it. Things have again changed for me (aren't they always). Because the crowd of parakeets have moved back into the house, it was overly busy in the little bird room so me and my cage were relocated to the Big Room! I like it in there and I bet Jensen and Zorro are happy I'm no longer bossing them around. As always, I spend a lot of time hanging out in Alfie's cage, riffling through his leftover seeds of which there are few, and taking an occasional bath in his drinking water. Hee hee. Mom is quick to change it after I've splashed about in it so that Alfie doesn't have to drink bath water. She also wipes down his cage afterwards as I've soaked the wires. You ask me, I'm helping out by keeping the dust down!

The fields around my house are slowly being harvested so the view now goes on forever. Some of the trees I can see right now are very pretty with colors like what you and me have all year long. If we were to go perch in one of them, our moms would have a really hard time spotting us!

Happy Weekend, my darling crazy little bird.
With love from your Riza~Girl •v•

I hope you are having a great day! It's still wet and windy up here but that is the way it is suppose to be this time of the year.
I'm helping mom get some cooking done since she goes back to work tonight and has to work 8 days straight. Having some meals done ahead of time really helps out.
Mom got the computer working this morning and so far so good! She deleted some programs and that may have been the problem. I know! It's a miracle that she figured any of this out!! Ian put Avast security on it and mom started to notice every time it would freeze and have to restart that it would say Avast had updated. It must have been blocking just about every site mom went to. Jennifer's desktop was not doing it so mom deleted it and another program dad put on and it's working this morning.
Dad already ordered the new parts to upgrade and they will be here sometime next week. Hopefully dad will be home sometime next week too so he can put it together. It's really not that hard but mom would rather dad do it so she doesn't mess anything up!
I love to waddle through the nice warm laundry too! I get complaints from the rest of the family because they think I am going to chew up their clothes!! I now only help with towels but I think they are the best anyway!! I throw them out of the basket for mom so she can fold them! I know she couldn't handle the job without me there!hehehehehe
I do hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a great day! We got the car back this morning! YAY! New transmission and an oil change and he is in great shape. Mom is going to have to remember she doesn't have to go really, really slow until he grabs 1st gear now! Felt a bit strange but we are so happy to have it done!
We got the linen closet all cleaned out and made room to store the huge package of paper towels and toilet paper. Mom also got a few cases of bottled water she is keeping in there too. There was an e-coli contamination out on Mercer Island and it closed down all the restaurants for days and everyone had to boil their water. We use a Brita filter but mom doesn't think that it will filter e-coli. She has decided to give me, Mandy and Merlin bottle water to drink just to be safe. They have no idea where the contamination came from and mom doesn't want to take the chance it might happen here. Maybe she is just being too paranoid but she would rather be safe than sorry!
Kaji is only 11 away from his 10K so he will be there very soon. The 10k page is ready for a party so please stop on by tomorrow and congratulate him and grab some food!

II hope you are having a wonderful day! I love your avatar! It's just beautiful!
Congratulations on the new cage! I hope you learn to love it as much as I love my cages! It's always nice to have a place that is just yours and I'm sure there is lots of room for some fabulous toys too and your happy hut!
Fall is here and it feels very nice. Mom is taking next week off because she wants to get the bathrooms painted. The car has to go into the shop on Tuesday for a new transmission. It was not the news we wanted to get but at least it will be fixed and mom won't have to worry about it anymore.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Mom got more squash so we will be cooking that up tonight! Can't wait to get my beak on more of that wonderful stuff!

  Hi Martini
That's not fair ... you don't get the same puter time as that boy!!!!
Thanks for the cage info. Mom found it. I would need a size larger which is almost another $100. Not fair I say.
I sure wish we had a lot more hot/warm temps instead of cold days. we really need to move!!!!! The winters are way too long up here. Mom wants to move really bad but dad doesn't.
The sun finally came out and warmed us up to 72 degrees. I did get some patio time. I hope tomorrow is even better. It's not beach weather but, I'll take it!

  Hello Martini!
Oh my, I'm so excited to be here writing to you! I wonder how you're liking your new cage. Bet you're all comfy in it now. The new tent sounds so cute. Having little birdies all around you would be a sweet way to spend the night. I got a chuckle thinking about you being confused that first night when the tent wasn't hung quite right. Leave it to your mom to know how to fix it tho. I can hardly believe that "That Boy" is in his final year of high school and preparing to head off to college. I bet it's lots of work filling out those applications. Imagine you'd like to help make it less work by shredding some of that paper for your cage. :) I've shredded so much paper lately there could be a mountain behind our house if mom didn't burn it in the barrel.

You would not be very impressed with some of the things I've done lately. I've been a bad girl a couple of times; I tried to bite mom's finger when she dared to remove my favorite foraging toy so it could be washed. Both mom and I were shocked by my behavior, I can tell you that. And then because my wings are completely grown out (I haven't had this many flight feathers since I moved here), I've taken up chasing after Zorro if he comes too close to my cage. Why him all of a sudden, I don't know. I got told today that if I chase Z again, the wings will have to be trimmed, so I tried all day to be a good girl. I even let Zorro climb on the ropes right out in front of my cage, but that's likely because mom was standing right there giving me that look that says "watch it, Missy" My favorite thing to do is still to sit on mom's shoulder while she works at the computer. Unfortunately lots of the work she's doing now is out in Dad's office and I can't go out there because of all the open doors and the smell of ink in the big printer. Boo-hoo.

I'll definitely have to go watch the video of the band music. My dancing shoes will be on for sure because I'm positive I'll want to do a little hopping around to the rhythm. Thanks for telling me about that.

Sending love and kisses all the way to you ~ xoxoxo

I hope you are having a great day! It's starting out cool and misty here! Just the way it should be!
Only 2 more days until the fair is over down in town! It's really fun but there is way too much traffic down there during the fair time. My skin sister's boss went yesterday and brought back a whole bag of fair scones for us! YUMMY! Mom has the mix so we can make more at another time. They have raspberry jam in them!
Can you believe that it is the last day of summer?? I had a nice summer but I just love Autumn. Pretty colors and really yummy squash! Halloween too! Guess I had better start thinking about a costume!
I hope your day is just perfect!

I hope you had a wonderful day! I'm doing just fine. It's dark and cloudy on one side of the hose and very sunny on the other side! It looks so cool!
We are still struggling with the computer so it limits our time during mom's workweek! I hope you don't think I haven't been thinking about you, because I have! It can take us an hour just to get 3 notes out and when mom has to work that night, we just run out of time! I don't think it will be too long before dad can get it fixed up.
I am watching the Mikado with the skin sister! It's got lots of music and for some reason it is making me giggle! I don't usually like operas but this one seems to be funny!
I do hope you enjoy your evening!!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! We've been having computer problems for a few weeks now but it seems to be okay today! It makes no sense at all! It just freezes up and crashes with no warning. We can restart and it's just fine for a while but it's getting nerve wracking! It is interfering with my social time so these parronts are going to have to get it fixed pronto!!
Dad says we are going to put all new stuff inside soon. We built this one and it wasn't very hard at all so I know they can do it again!
So that boy is a senior this year? That is so exciting. He is going to have such a good time. I think if he already knows what he wants to do in life, it is a wonderful thing!
I know that college is so very expensive. We have heard they are working on making the loans more affordable since there are peoples in their 50's are still paying for college!
Congratulations on the new house! That is wonderful. I am lucky enough to have 2 of them. I have a large macaw cage in the living room where I spend most of my days and a night cage in the bedroom. I love both my cages. I bet you love your happy hug very much! It's such a lovely comfy thing! I hope you have lots of good sleeping time in there!!
Enjoy your day and I hope it's just perfect!!

  Hi Martini
Glad you like your new cage. It takes a while to check out where everything is. What brand did you get? Mom check some cages and it looks like $375 to $400 plus. I need one size larger than you. Is that the new cage on your profile? Mom wishes she had $1100 for a stainless steel cage but that won't happen .... unless she wins the lottery!
Do you get "that" boy's room next year when he's gone????
What a cold and dreary day we had. The high temps were 48 to 52 degrees ... BRRR! I had to wear my hoodie to keep warm.
Today we remember all the people lost in the WTC, Pentagon and Shanksville PA ... keeping them and the survivors in our thoughts and prayers.

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's very pretty here today and I've been enjoying myself.
Nothing exciting going on unless you find laundry exciting. I don't! I do like climbing into the basket of towels and assisting mom in folding them. I'm actually very good at it! For some reason everyone thinks I should stay away from their clothes! I think they think I am going to chew them up!
We are still having computer problems but it's not the new stuff that got installed the other day. Mom is still trying to figure it all out but so far today we have had to restart 4 times. It is not easy to get notes out when the thing keeps freezing up but I do want you to know that I think about you everyday and I hope to be able to spend more time on notes when the computer is cooperating!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect!

Good to hear from you, I missed you!
Oh yes, senior year is a busy one. But, make sure you get lots of mom time too.
How nice, you have a new condo. Mom has been searching for one for me and hasn't found one she likes. Well, she did but it was $1600 and that is out of our price range!!! I hope you get a pic of it up on your page.
We are still waiting for summer up here. We have had 10 nice days so far this year. It doesn't look good.
Not a greyt day up here today. It rained all day until 4pm when the sun came out and warmed us up to 71. Saturday looks like all day t-storms with 74 degrees. At least it won't rain on the Milonga Fair!

How great to hear from you!! I hope all is well! Is
"that boy" going to college next year? How awesome! Has he selected a career path already? It's always wonderful when a person knows what they want to do!
Nothing exciting going on around here. We've been doing some cleaning since mom got behind on it and the place is a mess! I'm helping by supervising! I am very good at supervising.
It's been a real summer here with lots and lots of sunshine! Today the clouds are back and it's back into the 70's and it feels more normal!

  Hello Martini!
How ARE YOU? Anything new and exciting in your world these days? I wonder if That Boy has started back to school at this point. That would mean you have the house to yourself during the day again, something that I know makes you quite happy. Silly me, just after I told you about the way things were for me in the bird rooms, it all went and changed. Instead of coming out of my cage and being anxious about getting out of the Little Bird Room, one day I decided to just stay put and tell those conures they were not going to tell me what to do anymore. I took up playing on the bottom of my cage, shredding the papers there until I had a huge pile of soft little pieces. Since my door is open, I can keep the inside very clean, so the papers rarely have to be changed. Kirby, Paige and Felix, they don't intimate me anymore. Shoot, I even sort of tell Jenson what he's allowed to do! How things change, huh? When the green-cheeks go out to the bird barn, Jensen, Zorro and I actually kind of hang out together. We all suggested those GCC find a different address so there could be peace but mom said that wasn't an option as she really likes those three characters. Whatever.

I wish for you some lovely summer afternoons as you watch out the window for Jenny the dog and her owner when they walk by. That's so cute that you don't screech when they go by.

You asked about the other BC website. No, I've not checked that one out yet. I figured I would once our page BC pages are gone. There's been no work yet on when that might be so I guess we'll have them for awhile yet.

Hug and conure~kisses for you, Mr. Martini.

I hope you are having a great day! Everything is fine here at my nest. I'm having some playtime with mom and soon I will head off to the play cage for my apple.
We have lots of chores to get done today and I think mom is going over to the market to get a few things. It's only at the end of our driveway so she won't be gone long. Later on we will be getting some cooking done. My beans and grains for my mash are soaking and mom will cook those tonight. I am hoping that some corn bread will be on the menu too! A little corn bread to go with my mash sounds like an excellent idea to me!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still very pretty here and I am enjoying this last month of summer!

Today is the little niece Maddie 2nd birthday! Time flies! The picture in my gallery is from this morning! She is going to have a party today but I don't get to go. I guess one little kid around is okay but a whole bunch of them would be too much for me to take! I'll get to see her soon!

Merlin is shedding, Mandy is shedding and I am molting! That evil vacuum has been out way too much! mom tries to move us to different rooms when she uses it but she has had to use it so much in the past few days that one of us is always around! Merlin doesn't really care about it but it kind of freaks Mandy out! I go into Monster Bird mode and stomp around! Mom thinks it's funny when I do that! A little respect for the zon attitude is needed!!!!

It's been a nice quiet day so far. I like the quiet ones!
When mom is working, she keeps her cell phone in the pocket of her apron. When she went on break last night she shoved her wallet into the pocket with the cell phone and accidentally dialed Aunt Theresa!! Mom goes on break at 1am so it was 4am at Aunt Theresa's house! Luckily Aunt Theresa was awake. She told mom that my Ceasaur and Cheeta are both doing well. If you didn't know, they were both bitten by one of their macaw fiblings who had escaped their cage! Ceasaur got his foot hurt and Cheeta ended up with a broken wing. They are both healing and will be just fine! That made me very happy and worth mom being embarrassed about calling at an ungodly hour! I keep telling you all that mom is such a dork!hahahahahahaha

I hope you are having a great day! It's beautiful here too! Whereas everyone else has been having a mild summer, we've actually had some hot days! Not normal for us but this seem to be a year for contradictory weather! That is fine with me since it keeps it all from getting boring!
The fires are on the East side of the state. I live on the West. It's always hotter and drier over there than it is here. They get lots of snow over there in the winter too. It looks like these were the worst fires ever in the state and they lost a bunch of homes. I think they are about contained now and hopefully people can move on with their lives. I imagine that most people will rebuild.
Dad got to come home yesterday since he delivered locally and had to take a 34 hour break. He has a load to British Columbia so he'll probably leave tonight. It is not very far away from here but it takes a while to get over the boarder! It's funny because when they do the traffic reports up here they tell you how long the wait at the boarder is!
I hope you enjoy the day and I hope the family is all well and happy! It's always so wonderful to hear from you!!

I hope you had a wonderful day. It was a pretty nice one here. We had some computer problems but mom ran a scan and it all seems to be running okay now.
I spent the day supervising chores and playing with toys. Dad is home and he is a bit messy. There is of course tons of laundry stacked in the living room! Really kind of boring around here but that is just fine by me!
Mom did the market thing early today since dad had 2 doctor appointments. He has to squeeze them all in when he is home. I don't know when he is going to go back out on the road.
Glad to hear the family had a nice vacation. Mom says vacations are just too short. She'll probably take one in September.
Thanks for liking my picture with Pippo! We got a bit bored so we decided to join the circus for a while. I think we are going to learn to be clowns this week!

Oh yes, we have polo about 555 miles away. But because of all the road construction, it's a hour and 20 minutes drive away. Hope to go again on Sunday.
We had a nice sunny day today. But, the parronts were busy working in the yard. Tomorrow they are going to dad's family reunion without me. Mom says too many people and she would worry about me. So, I won't be on the BC on Friday but, I'll be back to chat on Saturday. I hope you have a greyt Friday.

I hope you are all having a wonderful 4th of July! We had some dork across the street blowing off fireworks at 10am this morning! It's sunny out!!!HELLO!!! What fun are fireworks in the sunlight! Anyway about an hour into his sunlight show we smelled smoke and the fire department showed up! I feel so very sorry for firefighters on a day like today! They are going to be so very tired! I hope if he decides to do a nightime show he is more careful.
Fireworks are not allowed in my complex which I am very happy about. I like looking at them but I'm glad they are not allowed around here.

The last Pitts eaglet fledged this morning at 10:14am (June 27). Good luck to all of them, I miss them already. We had a sunny warm day in the 80’s. But the internet/phone was down from noon to midnight. I’m finally back on.
Hugs

  Hi Martini
Scoober has been my boyfriend for about 1 1/2 years now. His real name is Scooby.
Thanks for liking my derby pics. We were sad to hear that CC was injured coming out of the gate at Belmont. The horse next to him stepped on his right foot. CC was bleeding the whole race. He is doing fine now and will be ready to race at the breeder's Cup in the fall.
Have you seen the new site yet? It's Birdyville.ning.com
When the BC is done we will all be over there. It's not finished but you can add your name and pics to it for now.
We enjoyed a beautiful partly sunny day today. We had an uninvited guest this morning, a chipmunk. But she didn’t stay very long. I think she came in looking for peanuts! My parronts went out for dinner, without me! But, I did get lots of mommie time when they got back home. Tomorrow is Chyna day. I have declared it around here. LOL! Have a greyt night. And, have a greyt vacation.
Hugs
Chyna

  Hi ya Martini~
I hope you had a great day! I had a pretty good day. Mom has a sinus infection so we just spent a quiet day together.
I have 3 new cousins! Mom's sister took in 3 budgies from a family who moved to Ohio. They had a nice flight cage but no toys and the family just left them in a back room and didn't pay any attention to them! They didn't even have any names! Mom suggested that her sister name them Prue, Piper and Paige after the 3 sister in Charmed. They are 3 little ladies who are 3 years old! Mom told her sister not to look at them directly in the eye and to give them some time to get use to her. She has already bought them all kinds of toys and perches! I think they will be very happy there!
I hope the family has an awesome vacation and I hope you have fun with the bird sitter!
Have a great night! I hope it's just perfect!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a great day! I'm having fun so far!
I intended to get around to say hello yesterday but dad put a new wireless mouse on the computer and somehow my Computer Wizard of a mom keeps shutting down the computer! She thinks she has it figured out now! I certainly hope so since my social life is very important to me!!
Really not much going on but I do like to get by often and say hello and see how things are going with you! How are things with you??? I'm just hanging out watching a Criminal Minds DVD with mom and Jennifer. This is the last disc for season 8 and season 9 in not out yet! It's a gruesome show but for some reason mom and Jennifer find it fascinating!
I do hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Happy Summer!

Our first day of summer did not start out so well. There was a dead pigeon on the balcony this morning and it made us all very sad. We could hear the other pigeons cooing and we wonder if they knew what had happened. There was no obvious signs of what it died from so maybe it was just old and it was it's time to go. Still, it was a lousy way to begin summer.

We have a few chores to get done and dad is going to take the rest of his stuff over to his truck. He will leave tonight. Mom will drop him off on her way to work since the truck terminal is in the same town mom works in.

I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
With love from Sugar

  My Sweet Martini
Happy 1st Day of Summer! If you've got your new beach tent hanging in your cage now, it's perfect timing. I bet you look so cute in it! That's a neat idea your seamstress has of making the floor removable for easier washing. I'll have to suggest the same to my mom for the next time she makes a new tent. Silly me tho, I rarely use the inside so hardly need a firmer floor; I still hang on the side of my cage with my back against the tent. I'm told that's the most uncomfortable way of sleeping ever seen. You'd think I was a bat or something, except I don't hang upside down!

It's amazing to think that "That Boy" is going into his final year of high school in the fall. Wow, has time flown. How proud your parronts must be of him and his accomplishment thus far.

I wonder if it's right now that Aunt Lisa is taking care of you. Mom and the Dad went to Colorado last weekend which meant I had to spend a very long weekend in my night cage, stuck in the Little Bird Room with the conure boys. Luckily they were all confined to cages too which made me happy to see. Middle brother did all the food and water care and younger brother changed out papers and swept the floor when he got home from work. It's the best going-away system mom's ever set up, at least that's what I heard the guys saying. I wasn't crazy about it, but nobody asked for my opinion.

As always, things continue to change for me. I'm back to spending my days in the Big Bird Room, except now I camp out on the center table, but on the lower level. Nobirdie bothers me there. Sometimes I dare to flutter to the floor and then hurry over to Alfie's cage so I can climb up and riffle through his seed bowl but since I don't like to walk on the floor, I don't do that very often. I share my space under the island table with a cockatiel who isn't able to fly but likes to run around on the floor. He's got a rope ladder he climbs when he wants to get back up on the table and to the cage where his food and water is. I've taken to going into that cage and napping sometimes but most of the time I sit on a piece of wood that's screwed to the side. It makes both a great perch and a wonderful thing to shred!

Since the pesky gnats have finally gone away (for the most part) the McFlock is FINALLY able to get outside some. I've been in the aviary but not in the bird barn. That's where the conure boys hang out for a couple of hours each day and you know how I feel about them. Did I ever tell you that I think Zoren and I would get along if it weren't for Jensen being such a selfish twerp about sharing Z's company? Stupid Jensen, we could be friends too if he'd just give up trying to tell me what to do.

Okay, enough jabbering out of me. How about some conure kisses from your girl?

XXxxXXxx ... and a great big ((HUG))!

With love, Riza •v•

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are enjoying the day!
We had a crazy day. The fire alarm people did not show up until nearly noon. They started on the other side of the complex! We had already done all our chores and were just waiting for them to show up. Mom had just gotten on Facebook and went to click on a Linkin Park Video when the fire alarms went off! Mom thought it was feedback from the video and turned the sound down! When the screeching kept going she final realized it was the alarms!hahahahaha
Mandy, Merlin and I were taken into mom's bathroom to wait for the inspection to be done. It was only for 10 minutes but Mandy was freaking out! She was panting hard and kept trying to squeeze behind mom! Merlin just sat in the sink like he always does. I was perfectly okay and just spent time chatting with mom.
Mom had to go to the market after that. She wasn't gone for a long time at least. She and Ian went to the mall to look for shoes for Ian first. He wears a 15 so not all the stores have shoes that big. He found some at Famous Footwear so he's happy! They stopped at Dairy Queen after that. They were taking donations for the children's miracle network at Diary Queen so mom bought a big balloon and put my name on it! It's now hanging at the Dairy Queen in the Mall! I'm gonna be famous!hahahahahaha It's the biggest balloon there!
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day!

I hope you are having a great day! I've got sunshine!
I just got into my play cage for my apple. I am late today because I was just having too much fun playing on the t-stand! I was flapping my wings and shaking my tail! Mom said I was a real "dancing queen" this morning. She just loves it when I shake my tail!
Not much else going on today. Ian just got called into work but that is nothing new. There seems to be a lot of people who either don't show up or want to switch shifts with him. It gets him lots of hours so he is just fine with it.
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's just perfect!

  Hi Martini
Oh, I had a problem and was rushed to the vet ER. Turns out, I may have had a seizure and breathing problems with an intestinal infection ... lucky me! I'm doing greyt now. I had to take new meds for 15 days. The one I had for 4 days was nasty but the 15 day one, I was begging for it! Mom just held the syringe and I took it myself (see pic at the bottom).
Weather has been good and I'm getting patio time with mom.
Saturday should be in the mid 70’s with sun, just like today was. I hope it’s good in Long Island NY and not raining. Don’t forget to watch the Belmont Stakes and cheer for California Chrome. This is the third jewel in the Triple Crown. We have been waiting 36 years for another champion.
Belmont Stakes ~ Saturday June 7th on NBC 4:30 PM EDT to 7:00 PM EDT. If you only want to watch the race, 6:15 will be your chance to see it all happen.
Hugs
Chyna

I hope you are having a great day! I hope the weather is lovely at your home!
It has been a very boring week so far. Nothing exciting to share!
It is sunny and very nice outside so I have been spending some time watching the people in the complex pool. Always seems silly to me to be splashing around and getting all wet. They all seem to enjoy it though! I have been spending a lot of time playing with my measuring cups this week. Mom got a plastic link chain and hung them from the top of the play cage. I love to slam them into the side of the cage and just swing back and forth with them!
It's our weekend now. I know that cleaning in on the schedule but I don't know what else. I think the dog is going to get a bath but I never see that happen. I just see her when she comes out and prances around! She is such a goof and loves everyone to tell her how pretty she looks after a bath.
I hope everything is just perfect at your nest!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar

I hope you are having a great day! It's 60 and sunny here. Another trick the tourist kind of day!hahaha
The gardeners are here so I've squawked a greeting to them and yelled at the silly humans in the pool! A good days work so far!
Mom had to go to the market but Jennifer is off today so she was here to keep me company! I don't need anything since I have my apples and a nice big bag of organic grapes so I'm set! Mom looked a the cherries but they are 6$ a pound and not even organic! I like the grapes better anyway. She had to get food for Merlin and even though he's a pest, I wouldn't want him to starve! He would drive us all crazy with his howling if there wasn't any food for him! He howls anyway but it's worse when he wants food!
Mom fell over Mandy when she got up this morning. She is just fine but I thought we were all going to play some kind of game since she was on the floor! I climbed down to peek out under the cage cover and asked her if she was okay. Merlin was sitting at the end of the bed howling for breakfast even though it was very early and Mandy was looking a bit worried! I started laughing and so did mom, so Mandy calmed down. Merlin just kept howling! He's only a cat so we have to forgive him for being unconcerned! It was nice to start the day off with a laugh!
I hope you enjoy your day and get to do some laughing too!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a fun day! It's still cloudy and rainy here but then it wouldn't be a holiday weekend if it wasn't rainy!Hahahahahahaha
Mom is working her regular schedule so we are getting things ready for her to start her work week tonight. I hear that the cages are going to be cleaned too so I'm not too happy about that. My night cage gets put into mom's shower so I don't ever see that happen. I would get to cranky if I had to see that!
Mom and Ian went to see X-Men yesterday and really enjoyed it. Jennifer didn't want to see it so she hung out with me! We watched Project Runway repeats and it was awful! The snacks were good though.
The family went over to a new Mexican restaurant last night for dinner. Mom said is was okay but not worth the money. They don't go out to eat much so when they do they like to go somewhere spectacular!
The voting for Sam 212680 to benefit Iowa Parrot Rescue starts at 12am ESt tonight! I know I can count on you for a vote!
Enjoy the day and I hope it is just perfect!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a great day! The rain came back here last night. We had this beautiful sunny week and now the rain is back for the weekend!hahahahaha It always happens like that. Mom is working and we don't BBQ so it doesn't really matter to us. Nothing stops up here because of the rain because if it did nothing would ever get done!
The fundraiser for Sam 212680 is this Sunday the 25th. I know most birds are already voting for him but if you know some birds that I don't, perhaps you could ask them to drop off a vote!! Falco, Willie and Peppino's mom and Raffikki's mom are going to match the donations so it is going to be a huge gift for the birds who live at the Iowa Parrot Rescue! I know it's a holiday weekend but I hope every bird can spare a few minutes to vote. It just happens that Memorial Day weekend is the day I came to live with mom! I think that is a great reason to celebrate!
I've been doing my part by ripping up mom's notebook with all her notes in it! She has to write everything down so that she remembers who is having a hatchday, etc. I have been shredding the old stuff so she doesn't get confused with too many lists! It's the least I can do since I am so very good at ripping things up!
I hope you enjoy the day and that it is just perfect!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Martini
Sitting here in my room, looking at the window at the wild birds in the front yard, I couldn't help but think of you and how you like to watch the birdies outside of your window. It's so nice here today, my window's open and a nice breeze is blowing in (making the little feathers on the floor blow around in crazy circles!). I'm having such a lovely morning because the Conure Tribe has been taken to the Bird Barn so Jensen and I can have a reprieve from their pesky ways. With the three of them out of the room, Jensen, Zorro and I are actually all three getting along quite nicely. Go figure! I think Zoren and I would actually be friends if we didn't have Kirby and his crazy cohorts policing our every move. Those conures need a room of their own!!

I thought of you the other evening as I was chewing on the rope that my sleepy hut hangs from, wondering if you ever spend any time gnawing on parts of your tents. I've destroyed several rope pieces here lately, which isn't a good thing because then the tent ends up on the floor! The other night it feel in the dark and I had to climb down and just lay on it. I napped a lot the next day because I was one tired little conure~girl.

I bet "That Boy" looked oh so handsome in his tux, all ready for the Prom. It's cute that you were fluttering and trying to be in on the action too. I know how you like it best when your mom fusses over YOU more than anybody else. It does feel nice to be fussed over, doesn't it.

Sharing tender little conure kisses with you, Martini.
xx xx xx

With love from your Riza

P.S. I have no idea why Jenny Lynn's over here making such threatening remarks. She obviously has no idea how sweet, sincere, and wonderful you are. Shame on her for wondering if you could be any other way!
