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! I can't believe I'm BOTD! I am so excited and so grateful to all my friends here. It is still such an honor to be picked from all the awesome birds here to have a day in the spotlight!
We have had a crazy morning already! It was pretty loud last night since they were paving the road across the street. Who knew that paving included pounding? I didn't! It was the stream roller I guess! Mom cranked the radio up but you could still feel a bit of shaking. I squawked a few times and Merlin spent most of the night in the window watching it all! McKenzie slept through it all!! They were done by 4 am but I think I'll be grabbing a nap later!
We have a wetland that runs the length of the complex. It is fenced in but it's just a plank fence and not totally to the ground. When mom was walking McKenzie this morning, McKenzie stuck her head under the fence that encloses the wetland and pulled out a Mole! Thank goodness mom has been working on "drop" with her because when mom screamed, she dropped it! The poor thing was flailing around and so scared! McKenzie knew she had done something bad cause she flattened out on the walkway and looked guiltily at mom!
Mom locked McKenzie in the car and grabbed the car towel. She picked up the little Mole and checked him out. Thankfully he wasn't hurt! He kept flailing and growled at mom! Mom crawled against the fence and found his hole and set him down there. He dug a little and then popped back down in the hole. Mom told McKenzie that there will be no hunting allowed! We read later on that coyotes dig up moles for food. Dad thinks any kind of dog would do it and that is probably true. Obviously there will be no more walking anywhere near the fence! I don't think moms heart could take another incident like that!hahahahaha She was so scared that McKenzie had killed it.
Come on over to the castle today! Mikey and Kacey have had Lizzy and Chipper prepare a wonderful luncheon for us! I can't wait to see you!!!
Enjoy your day!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you had a wonderful day! We did the chores we never got done yesterday. Kind of boring but mom put Minions on for me while she was cleaning the kitchen! I love those squeaky yellow guys!
McKenzie was a bit rowdy this afternoon. She thinks that the cat is going to play with her like another puppy would but we all know that is not going to happen. He sits and whacks at her and whines for mom to come pick him up. I think he is doing that on purpose to that mom will pick him up. He certainly could get up on something, like he usually does, but I think he just wants mom to rescue him!
The road construction is continuing at night. The trucks just stared showing up. Mom put the radio on a bit louder last night so we wouldn't have to listen to the beeping when the trucks back up. Mom was hoping they would be farther along at this point. They still have not paved across the street from us so maybe tonight. Then they will start tearing up our side of the street! The parts they have finished do look very nice and are really smooth to drive on!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! }

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I did not get many notes out yesterday just because we ran out of time! Actually, it's all moms fault since she fell asleep when she got home from work! Guess she was tired but it sure did put us behind! We managed to get the stuff done that needed to get done but it was time for her to go to bed after that! She only has one more night to work and then we get our weekend!
Really nothing exciting going on. Jennifer is not feeling well so McKenzie and I are trying to be quite so she can sleep! Merlin sleeps all day anyway so it's no big deal for him! I'm doing pretty good but McKenzie doesn't understand quiet yet.
I hope your day is just wonderful! We hope your mom is having lots of fun!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a great day. Cool, wet and windy here. Mom had to put the heat back up a bit in the bedroom to make it nice and cozy for me! Perhaps she should not have put away all that winter stuff!Hehehehehehe It was like daring Mother Nature to bring back the cold!
They have been repaving in my neighborhood. They got onto my street last night. They took a big backhoe and smashed the cement divider that goes down the center of the street! It was noisy but over quickly! They just smashed it and swept it up. Now there is just a yellow line there. Guess they'll be back after the weekend to pave it. Mom left for work right after they did it and she said it runs all the way up to the freeway~about a mile up the street! They seem to be moving pretty quickly!!
I hope the day is just fabulous!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a great day! It's only 80 here today so that is tolerable! There is a nice breeze and mom has the window open so I'm enjoying that. My cage was all cleaned out again this morning so I've been working on redecorating.
McKenzie had an upset tummy this morning. Ian bought her a rawhide bone at Petco yesterday and it did not agree with her. Mom will stick with the Dingo bones since they have never upset her tummy. Petco only had the tiny Dingo bones so mom will pick up the more appropriate sized ones at her work. She is feeling fine now and wants to eat everything in sight! Just like normal!hehehehehe
We have been doing chores most of the day. Mom washed the winter jackets and is going to hang them in the hall closet. She got the stove scrubbed and wants to get some things done in her bedroom later. She will have to wait for Jennifer to get home so that she can occupy McKenzie while mom and I go in the bedroom. If McKenzie is in the bedroom you have to watch her all the time because she likes to grab books and try to chew them up! That is a huge NO NO in this house! I don't get to do it so she can't either!
I hope the day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful day.
Mom is having one of those days where she can not get anything done! I blame it all on the dog!hehehehehe Mom says there is blame to share!
I have been throwing pieces of wood out to McKenzie and the dork tries to eat them!! Mom asked me to stop it but I don't think it's my fault if the dog is a dope!
When I got bored with that game I decided it was time to rip the paper up on the bottom of the cage. That always gets the puppy running!! I think she wants to rip paper up also. Mom finally had to put her on the leash to keep her away from my cage. Merlin started howling for food so mom filled up his dry food bowl. He took a few bites and then walked over and started whacking the dog. Guess he was jealous because McKenzie was paying attention to me! The turtles even got into it by pushing their filter over!! Mom said something about needing a vacation!hehehehehehe
Another beautiful day here. Suppose to be nice again tomorrow. I like having the window open and all the sunshine! I hope you have an awesome day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Martini~
I hope the day is going great! Mom was gone for nearly 2 hours getting dad to the airport. Not a ton of traffic this morning but there is more up near Seattle then there is down here. McKenzie really enjoyed it. She watches planes. Don't know if that is unusual or not but every time one of the big transports come over to land at JBLM, she stops to watch!
She managed to get out of her seatbelt when mom was leaving the airport and came to sit in the front! I don't think she understands that dad is not coming back later!
When mom got home they were starting the pressure washing outside. It was very loud and McKenzie and Merlin got scared. I was just fine! Mom moved us all and we spent an hour waiting for it to be done! Now we have wait for the stairs to be dry so we can put our doormat back out!
I hope your mom has the best time visiting with her mom! Moms mother has been gone for nearly 15 years now and mom misses her everyday. Moms are very special you know!
I hope your day is spectacular!! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

I hope you had a great day. It was nice here. Mom and I did chores and laundry. We cleaned out a bunch of drawers in the bathroom. There was some old stuff there that we threw out and then checked our first aid kit to make sure it was filled up. Mom hates it when she needs a band aid and there are none left! Mom went to the market across the street to pick up some food for Merlin and return the movies from yesterday. After that she was home the rest of the day.
Enjoy the evening!!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Another quiet one around here. I've been busy trying to get the puppy to come close enough so that I can give her a nip! Mom keeps telling me no but McKenzie is so trusting and really wants to come closer. Mom told me it wasn't nice to tease her like that so I'm back to chewing some toys for now.
Mom managed to break the little toe on her left foot so she is not walking very quickly today. She doesn't even remember how she did it! She walks into things all the time so she probably banged it on something yesterday! She is a real klutz!!
Enjoy your day and I hope it's spectacular! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day. Very pretty here still and I'm enjoying the sunshine.
Happy Belated Birthday to Aunt JoAnn! I sure hope she had a wonderful day! Mom says Happy Birthday too!
Not much going on here today. McKenzie is taking a nap so we are trying to get the notes done before she wakes up. Jennifer is trying to finish her book for the book club meeting tomorrow. It's called Night Circus. Mom tried reading it a few years ago but never really got into the story. It was a bit slow but she may try it again when Jennifer is done. Jennifer hasn't formed an opinion yet so it will be interesting to see how the book club meeting goes.
Mom has read two of the Library's book club selection. She was okay with "Wild" but absolutely loved "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet". It was a wonderful story about a Chinese boy and Japanese girl who become friends in Seattle during WWII.
I should never let mom get started on books!! This note would be going on for days and days!!hehehehehe
I think it's nice that "That Boy" is coming home. I bet your mom misses him and it will be nice for them to have some time together to catch up on things. We sure hope he is enjoying college. I bet you could find a toy to play with while they are visiting!
Enjoy your day and I hope it's just spectacular!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a fabulous day! Very sunny and beautiful here. We are suppose to hit 80 today. Not sure if it will happen but there are so many trees outside my bedroom window that it won't feel warm in there anyway.
Mom and dad went to Costco this morning. They went right when it opened so that it wouldn't be too hot for McKenzie in the car. They parked in the shade and left the windows cracked. It wasn't even 60 at that point so she was fine.
McKenzie had a great time at her very first Spa Day yesterday. Her groomers was named Sarah and she is a very nice young lady. McKenzie just loved her and she was very patient with McKenzie when she started to freak out over the blow dryer. Mom took McKenzie over there this morning to give Sarah a thank you card and a tip. McKenzie thought she was going to get another bath!hahahaha Wonder why she likes it at the groomers and not at home?? McKenzie got another food bowl while they were at Petsmart. You are not going to believe this but she chewed up her food bowl! What was she thinking?? She got a lovely pink bowl that is stainless steel on the inside. If there is a way to chew it up I promise you McKenzie will find it! Mom wanted to get her the Seahawk Hoodie but dad thinks we should wait to see if she is going to get any bigger. I think dad doesn't want her wearing clothes but mom is determined that when football season comes around, McKenzie will be wearing the Seahawk colors.
I hope the day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Very pretty up here again. We are suppose to be reaching 80 tomorrow. A bit early for that but it's only one day. The 70's are perfectly lovely and I think we should just have 70 year round!hehehehehe
I really enjoyed the new Star Wars. There was lots of stuff blowing up and you know that I love that. I think dad liked it too. Mom, Ian and Jennifer had already seen it at the movie theater but said there were things they missed the first time.
I have had a lovely afternoon hanging out with mom. I got to have her all to myself. McKenzie is gone for a spa day at the groomers. First time she has been there. She was putting on her cuteness when mom dropped her off and everyone fell in love with her. She really is a sweet puppy and is very nice to everyone she meets.
I got to run around the living room and that was lots of fun. I got picked up when I started to chew on the carpet! Go figure!
Dad and Ian have gone to pick up McKenzie. She just had a bath and they are going to file her nails also. She has very sharp nails.
The rest of the day will be spent doing the chores we should have done earlier!hahahahaha Playing was much more fun and the chores will still be there later.
Enjoy your day!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a fabulous day! Pretty nice around here still but the rain will be back tonight. I can not complain since so many places are still having snow in April!
Took a shower this afternoon and McKenzie thought I was playing. She jumped up on the front of my play cage! Mom grabbed her and told her no! Dad said it would have been the perfect time for me to use my new "McKenzie No" phrase but I was too busy trying to get over to bite her!
Dad has his Fender guitar hanging on the wall between the living room and the kitchen. It's been there forever! He walked by and strummed it and McKenzie went nuts. She growled and barked! Mom told her it was nothing scary but she does not like it. Dad tried to show it to her but she kept growling. It's back on the wall now but she is keeping an eye on it. She is a very strange puppy!
Uncle Chuck called us this morning. We were surprised. He is doing okay. Mom posted a note on the calendar page and on the BC community page on Facebook.
I hope your day is just stellar!!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Another beautiful spring day up here!
Sounds like your family had quite a feast at Easter! That is so cool. Mom's aunt did a big dinner but since she and Ian both worked they couldn't go over there. Her aunt and uncle are flying down to California tomorrow because their grandson (mom's 2nd cousin)is getting married. Mom can't wait to see the pictures.
Gardeners are here this morning and out mowing. It is keeping McKenzie occupied for a little while at least.
She is shedding and mom has been trying to keep her brushed up. It's difficult because McKenzie still thinks brushing her hair is a game! Mom tried it out on the balcony and there were some tufts of fur left out there. A sparrow came by and collected them! I guess McKenzie's fur is going to be part of their nest! Pretty cool!!
Not much planned for today. Mom does have to go to the market since dad is home and seems to be eating everything!hahahahahah Good thing I have my mini pancakes stashed because he ate all the bread yesterday so not toast for me this morning! Pancakes are just as good!!
Enjoy they day and I hope it's spectacular!

I hope you had a great day! It's very pretty up here. The wind is still blowing so it doesn't feel as warm as I'd like but it was still nice.
Mom had lots of cleaning to get caught up on so we did that most of today. Still have things we want to get done but it's our weekend so we have tomorrow also.
I'm an Auntie!! Moms sister canary hatched 3 chicks! There is still one egg to go and I've got my toes crossed the little guy show up soon! Moms sister is rather freaked out and has been doing a lot of reading up on canary babies! I think they'll be just fine.
Uncle Chuck is at the rehab center now. They don't have phones in the rooms so his sister is suppose to bring him his cell phone.

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful Easter Sunday! McKenzie and I shared a blueberry muffin for breakfast and it was yummy. We don't really celebrate Easter around here since mom always has to work and Ian is still at work. Maybe we will do something when mom is off this week. She did get a couple of vegan chocolate bars and will share them with dad, Ian and Jennifer. I think the muffin was a much better idea!
Jennifer just got back from her sisters house. She went down on Friday for a birthday party for her brother in law. He and Ian share a birthday. They announced the sex of the new baby and Maddie is getting a little sister!! I think Maddie is very excited. I know I can't wait to meet her. They don't have a name picked out yet but I'm sure it will be great.
We talked to Uncle Chuck a while ago and he is doing okay. There is a complete update on from RaneBeau on the calendar page. Jenny and Lalo have gone over to visit with Aunt Denise and the flock which is just wonderful. I know Uncle Chuck feels much better knowing that they are safe and have lots of company.
Enjoy your day and I hope it's a very special Easter for everyone!

I hope you are having a spectacular day! Oh yes! We have the email address. Mom wrote it down in her address book so she wouldn't lose it!

You know you never need to worry about not being able to blog. The BC has been iffy this week and some days were good and others we couldn't stay on long enough to finish any notes. Don't think they are interested in fixing anything since they are planning on making it a magazine format next year!

We didn't really celebrate St. Patrick's day at all. Everyone had to work. I did get a lovely waffle for breakfast. It was good! Mom makes soda bread sometimes too but she didn't do it yesterday. She did bake some yams and made spaghetti. It sounds like a strange combination but they were not eat together!hehehehehe Jennifer bought a whole bunch of yams because they were going to try a bean and yam chili but they did not have all the ingredients and mom didn't want the yams to go bad, so she baked them. They will get more along with the ingredients they were missing and try the chili this weekend!!!

Enjoy your day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I hope you have a fabulous day!
It is sunny and pretty up here. We are starting out at 30 but will end up near 60. Spring!!
Mom got the filters for the vacuum dried out and put back in so I know she'll be using that evil machine today! McKenzie is shedding and it's awful! Mom has been brushing her but she thinks it's a game so it's slow going. There are still clumps of fur all over! Mom sweeps them up before she vacuums. She has to sweep up all the treats I threw out of the cage for the puppy too! I'm just doing my part with the puppy duty!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's just spectacular!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Pretty quite day around here. We have all wanted moms attention today so she is finding it difficult to get anything done.hehehehehehe It is our weekend so we don't really need to rush to get anything done.
The rain finally stopped. Jennifer was happy because they could let the kids at daycare go outside to play. They are much easier to control if you can let them do some running around! Sounds very much like a puppy!
Don't know what plans we have for the next few days. Mom is going to catch up on some sleep and I imagine we will be doing some chores. Nothing exciting about that but at least mom will be home with us.
I'm sitting here watching Sailor Moon with Jennifer. It's in Japanese so I have no idea what is going on! Mom says the closed captioning is not helping at all! Guess I'll just enjoy the colors!

I'm Here!! I hope you guys had a great day! We had some nasty storms last night and today. We lost power! It went out this morning but came back on after about 10 minutes. It kept flickering off and on and then it went off and stayed off for 3 and a half hours! We sat on the sofa and watched a movie on moms Kindle. Actually, mom fell asleep with Merlin on her lap and McKenzie on the right. I was on the left in my play cage. We all sort of took a nap! The power came back on just before mom left to pick up Ian.
Mom is off tonight so she can get some sleep. Starting next week her regular days off are switching to Tuesday night and Wednesday night. That way mom will always be there for the weekend ads they throw in a couple times a month. At least she gets two days off in a row. Saturday night she has to go in at 10 since the time change happens and they will lose an hour. Hate the time change!!!!
Thanks for the email address. Mom wrote it down in her address book so she won't lose it!
How is "that boy" doing at school? We hope he is enjoying it!

I hope you are having a great day!! Happy Pancake Day!! Guess what I had for breakfast??hahahahaha Yep! Pancakes! Mom bought me a box of silver dollar pancakes so I can have them whenever I want them! She is such a good mom!
Mom bought the digital copy of Mockingjay Part 2 today. She'll buy the DVD when it comes out on the 22nd but she wanted to have all 4 movies on her Kindle. I have gotten to see part of it but mom has had to chase McKenzie around so she keeps pausing it. I think it's nearly nap time for the puppy so maybe I'll get a chance to watch the rest of it. I like mom's Kindle! When we read books on it I like to tap it with my beak and make the pages turn!! It's fun!!!

I hope you had a wonderful day! I apologize for the c/p today but it's the only way I'm going to get notes out today! Mom is doing okay. The pain from the shingles is really less but the itching is worse!hahahahaha She'll be taking some Benadryl tonight and getting lost of sleep!
As for our BOTM this month, Kacey and Mikey are running together! They celebrated their 4th anniversary today and I think it's awesome that this young couple will be doing this together. Don't know if they can blog yet but I hope you will leave a vote anyway! The page number is 229611. Look for the wedding avatar on the calendar page!
As most of you have already heard, BC is going to eventually convert our site. It will probably be like the Reptile channel which is a magazine format. That means no blogs. They will not be fixing the site so that means Julio will probably be in the spotlight box until the site changes! I hope every bird will go to the Facebook Bird Community page to leave notes. If you don't have a Facebook page it's easy to sign up. You do not have to put any information that could be used to steal your identity. I have a page under my name with just my birthday and state where I live. If you are not comfortable with Facebook please remember mine and moms emails! We really care about you all and want to keep in touch! Mom is eileenmc2@hotmail.com and I am at sugarmcclelland@gmail.com.

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having an excellent day! Glad to hear everyone enjoyed the trip!
Mom is doing better. Her neck is not as sore and the stabbing pain that comes with it is less and less everyday. The rash has not healed up but it's getting there. She is not sure if she should continue the meds after the first round is done so she'll called the doctor and ask. The shot doesn't always work from what mom was told, but it will make it less of an outbreak should a person get it so it's worth it!
Looks like the BC is going to change to the magazine format like the reptile channel did. Not sure when it's going to happen but I want you to have our emails so we can keep in touch. Mine is sugarmcclelland@gmail.com and mom's is eileenmc2@hotmail.com.
Every bird seems pretty upset that it's going to happen but there is nothing we can do about it. Mom checked out dog channel, cat channel, fish channel and horse channel and they all seem to be having the same problems as BC. I suppose it all comes down to how much money has to be spent to keep the channels up and running. I would imagine a magazine format is less expensive since it would not need maintenance.
Nothing much exciting going on around here. Mom is getting laundry done and then she'll go to sleep. Only one more night of work and it's weekend for us! YAY!!
Enjoy your day!

  Happy First Day of March!!
And for the record, I consider myself one very lucky girl to be your sweetheart.

How was your weekend with Aunt Lisa-visits? And did the Parronts and "That Boy" have a good time in DE? I hear the weather on the east coast has been quite nice lately so I'm hoping they had some pleasant temps for enjoying some time away. I would think Spring Break would be a lot more enjoyable if the weather were nice. It's downright frigid here today with below-freezing temps and blustery wind. I wonder if this will be considered March coming in like a LION. That should mean it's going to go out like a lamb. Time will tell, right?

I think it's just the cutest thing that you have a bowl of Craisins under the papers for convenient snacking when you're in the mood. I'm like you in that I only eat the soft inside part. None of that tough 'skin' for me either! I "skin" a lot of my food, brown rice included. You wouldn't believe how meticulously the parakeets 'skin' each piece of rice that's in their veggie mix! We parrots just don't believe in fiber, do we.

I'm happy to say that I continue to be a very good conure~girl. I've not ambushed anybirdie in months, and I'm actually fully-flighted and very capable of dive-bombing some unsuspecting fellow conure or a macaw or grey. I'm told that it's because of my good behavior that my flight privileges have remained in tact. I've heard others in the flock get a threatening wave of the scissors after some misdemeanor that their wings got them into. For me, it works best if I just stay in my cage. The doors are often left open but I choose to stay inside. I wouldn't want anybirdie to get anywhere near my precious boxes!

I hope you and your handsome beak have a grand time beneath the papers and that your Craisins peel easily for you.

KISSES to that beak of yours~~~~ xXxXX

With love,
Your Girl, RIZA •v•

  Hello Martini~
I hope you had a great day! Mom is doing okay. It really does hurt and she had no idea!! She figured it was just a rash but it's in your nerves so her head and neck hurt. Putting the seat belt on is very uncomfortable but she does it anyway. Anything touching it makes it hurt so she tries to be careful. Having the shot is probably a good idea. They say it doesn't always prevent it but if it does happen it won't be so bad. Mom's big problem is that she was suppose to have the treatment within 2 days but it took 6 days to get an appointment at the doctor so she might have to take the pills for an entire month!
Not much going on here today. Mom managed to get last night and tonight off which is good since sleep helps. Nothing going on at her work until tomorrow night anyway. She has plenty of vacation time.
Mom went to Petco today to get us food. She got McKenzie some new toys since she seems to have lost some of hers and some got old and had to be tossed out. I hope they can find some today that don't squeak cause I'm getting really tired of hearing that!hahahahahaha Jennifer got her one that really squeaks! I hope she chews that up quickly! I have learned to ring my bell and she will come over to me! Mom doesn't think it's so clever of me since she has to get up and drag the dog away! I'm just trying to help!
Have a great night! Hope the weekend is fabulous too and that none of those storms have been near you!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a great day! BC seems okay right now but it has been such a mess lately that every bird is having problems. Julio has been in the BOTD box for 4 days now!
Mom had to go to the doctor this morning because she got this strange rash on her neck. Turns out she has Shingles!hahahahaha She's only been 60 for 3 weeks and she already has an old persons disease!hahahahaha
There is a vaccine for it but it's too late now! She has to go get some medicine and take it for the next 10 days. She is suppose to get lots of rest but we all know that's not going to happen! At least dad will be home later today and he can take over puppy duty while mom gets some sleep! Once she is better then she can get the vaccine.
I have been playing with my new toys and driving the dog crazy with my bell! It's pay back for all those stupid squeaky toys she is always chomping on!!!
I hope your day is just spectacular!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Glad to be able to blog again. I got kicked off on Saturday afternoon and couldn't get back on. The BOTD kept changing for Julio to Sherman and Peabody so I knew something was wrong. I kind of had a feeling that something was up since the BOTD has not been on BC for over 5 years. I suppose all websites have problems. At least I was able to vote for Laka both days even if I couldn't leave notes!
Nothing exciting going on here anyway so no one missed any news from me!
I'm really sorry the Milonga had to be rescheduled. I'm sure it will still be fabulous!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just spectacular!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Kind of a quiet day around here. We have plans to get some chores done since mom is off.
Still got rain but it's been in the 50's for the past few days. Last night the crickets and frogs were out singing their little heads off! Maybe that groundhog was correct and spring will be here early. That would be nice. I think we could all use a bit of spring.
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's just perfect!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Yes! I'll Be Your VALENTINE ... Forever!
You are such a sweetheart, wanting me to be your Valentine again this year... and for always. I am the luckiest girlie~bird. This makes me want to shower you with lots of conure~kisses!! xXxXx

That big snowfall you had, that had to have been incredible, getting 2' of snow all at once. I don't think that much has ever fallen at my house in one storm. Shucks, we're lucky to get a total of two feet in an entire winter, much to my mom's disappointment. It snowed all day today so I think she's rather pleased with the weather at the moment but I happen to know that it's going to be very warm the rest of the week which means the snow won't last very long. I hope you don't have any trouble staying toasty warm in your chilly days ahead.

I spent a lot of this Valentine's Day shredding what's left of a box. It's so badly torn up, it's tipped over on its side and looking rather dilapidated. I hope there's a new box saved somewhere for me. I'm going to need it. You're likely to have had an interesting weekend what with 'That Boy' being home for a visit. I can just see you, all zeroed in on his location in the house and constantly being at the ready to pounce him. You'll be worn out by the time he goes back to school!

Thank you so much for all the hugs and kisses you've shared with me over the years. What a sweetheart you are, Martini.

Sharing some more XOXOXO on this Valentine's Day...

Your Girl Always,
RIZA •v•

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a great day! Happy Valentine's Day! Here is a heart just for you! ♥
Mom gave McKenzie a bath today and mom was drenched! She had to change her clothes and mop the bathroom. The dog smells good now and the bathroom is clean!hahahahahaha I dumped a bunch of seeds, nuts and pellets for McKenzie since I felt sorry for her. I think maybe mom doesn't like me doing that but I have to be a good fister and share!
Several people have asked mom if McKenzie is part coyote. One of the vet techs at our vet said that she was part coyote. Mom thought she was kidding but we researched it and it is possible! One of the nurse who takes care of the young man downstairs said that she has a friend who has a coyote hybrid and he looks just like McKenzie. It certainly would explain why she is so wild and why she makes this funny howling noise when she yawns! Doesn't really matter since there are no health concerns. Mom is just going to have to be firm about the training and let convince McKenzie that mom is the alpha. This should be very interesting!
We are having a rainy Valentine's Day but it's not cold at all. I feel awful for any bird who lives out East. When you get temps with a minus in front of them, it's bad. I'm sure every bird is staying nice and warm and cozy!
I hope your day is just wonderful! I'm leaving a vote and a big hug!!
With love ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It just took mom 45 minutes to do one note so you know how things are going around here!hahahahahahaha McKenzie is running around and I'm hollering to get out of the play cage! Afraid that is not going to happen as long as the dog is running around. Pretty soon Ian will puppy-sit and I can have playtime with mom!
Really rainy here today but not cold so I can not complain. There are going to be tons of places that are below zero today! Hope that Polar whatever goes away quickly! Spring is really, really close and I think we are all ready for it!
Enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug too! Happy Valentine's day to you too!

  Martini!
How ARE YOU? Good, I hope. Me, I'm fine. Just fine. My beak is keeping busy mowing through cardboard boxes by the dozen. The pile of shredded brown paper in and around my cage is downright impressive, if I don't say so myself. There was one day last week when mom didn't have a new box to give me and I thought I'd go crazy with nothing to chew on. So I gnawed the ropes that my sleepy hut hangs by to bits. Not a good idea as it makes the tent hit the floor of the cage with a THUD. I haven't bothered the new rope but then I've had a plenty of boxes at my disposal ever since.

I wonder how your winter has been so far. It's been a cloudy one here this year. I think the sun went to Florida for the season. It's definitely not in IL anymore. On the rare occasion it has made an appearance it's so frighteningly bright I feel inspired to work further back in my box. Do they make sunglasses for Conures???

What's the current pattern of your tent material? Perhaps something with red hearts seeing as it's nearly Valentine's Day. I like your newest avatar... those are two sweet birds looking at each other there. *smile*

I'm sending off cozy kisses on this chilly winter night xx~xx~xxx

With Love!

We've been fortunate to have very warm weather for Buffalo, but the temps are plummeting and we will have snow and single-digit temperatures by the weekend.
~sigh~
It is Buffalo after all.

Uncle Geno got a goldfish. Now, what good is a fish - it can't fly. It can't sit on your shoulder and nip your ear. It can't even say 'Love You'. No cuddle-time...Silly Geno - don't know what good a fish could be.

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a great day! We are having a little Puppy Bowl party. Don't really care about the Super Bowl. We just hope it's a fun game and that everyone has a great time.
Mom has been filing the papers we sorted out this week. That is one big job done. Now she just has to make sure everyone keeps up with filing! There is a big box of papers for dad to go through when he gets home. I'm sure he will just love doing it!
Mom has 2 more nights so we are going to enjoy them! Jennifer is home and she is watching Agents of Shield. We have seen them but she hasn't. I don't mind seeing them again.
I hope you have a great day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Martini~
I hope the day was great! I took a shower today and it felt good. I had been feeding McKenzie some of my treats and then decided that we both needed to get cleaned up! She started barking at me when I dumped the water on her so I know she really enjoyed it! She got toweled off and I just air dried!
Mom took Jennifer down to visit her dad this morning so I got some quiet time! I got another piece of my hatchday cake after lunch. It was lovely.
The rest of the day was spent chasing puppy and trying to get chores done. We are now going to relax and get my notes done and perhaps watch a movie. It is very rare for mom to have a Saturday night off so we are going to make the most of it!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!

  Hello Martini~
I hope the day was spectacular! Oh it feels very good to get rid of stuff! Some of it was still in it's original packaging! Dad bought a battery operated wine opener years ago and it was never even opened. We don't drink wine so I don't know why he bought it! A lot of the kitchen stuff we got rid of was from friends of mom who had home kitchen parties and mom just bought something and never used them!
Mom thinks the Panther are going to win but you never know. It always seems to come down to who wants it more. She does not like Cam Newton very much but some of the other Panthers are good guys. Newton seems like he does not appreciate the blessings he has. Too much arrogance can cost you the game I think. We will be checking out the puppy bowl of course. Maybe McKenzie will like to watch that too! So far the only thing she has looked at was a video of a Cockatoo from Facebook.
Enjoy your evening and the weekend!
