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 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!
Enjoy the evening and I do hope it's perfect!

  Hi Martini
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.
Hugs

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.
I hope you have just a wonderful night!!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Thanks ... I had a greyt Chyna Day! Mom says everyday is Chyna day ... hehehehe.
Have a greyt weekend too.
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.

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.

  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!

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!

  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!

  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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!

  Hi Martini
I had two problems going for me. The first was my usual respiratory problems were really bad and then I chewed up plastic toys and got a piece in me. My intestines were infected and I had a little blood in my poo. The syringe is 15 days of bene-bac gel ... I like it and can't get enough! My poo is a lot better and I'm doing better and playing and eating and talking again. The allergy problem should get better too.
Today I was sneezing, shaking my head and scratching my head a lot. Mom gave me a bath and it felt better. It was a bad allergy day. But, it was nice outside. I got to feel the breeze and see the sun for a little while. I’m still taking the bene-bac gel meds with no problems at all. I act like it’s a treat!

It was awesome to hear from you! You never need to worry when you can't blog because I know how very busy life can get!
All is good here. That evil vacuum is still here and she is still using it! I really do think that shaving the dog and cat would save us from having to use it so much! So far I am the only one who thinks that is a good idea!
My dad was home for the weekend. He took a class to become a driver trainer. He left this morning with his very first trainee. The trainee has driven before but got deployed and hasn't driven for a while so he has to take the training class again. I think it will work out well for dad!
It would be awesome if you could give Sam a vote on Sunday the 25th. His page number is 212680. His avatar is in my aviary also. Falco's mom is going to match our donation so it's just so wonderful! Votes for Sam and money for the rescue!
I hope you have a great day!

  HI ya Martini~
I hope you are having a great day!

As most of you already know, I came to live with my mom when her sister was unable to care for me anymore! I have known mom for 30 years and been a part of the family for that long! Mom use to bird sit me so when I needed a new place to live she was the logical choice! That and the fact that she has always loved me so very much!

To celebrate my 6th anniversary of being with my mom, I am holding a fund raiser for Iowa Parrot Rescue. I support this rescue every month and am amazed at the awesome job Mike and Abi do to take care of birds in need of a home. I have many friends who are in forever homes who started out at IPR. I am a lucky bird since I have been with my family for 30 years and will continue to live with them until the end of my life. There are many birds who are not as fortunate as us! They have already adopted out many birds this year but for some reason, no Amazons! Being an Amazon, I want to help out my fellow zons!

On May 25th-next Sunday-every vote that Sam gets will mean a dollar contribution for the Iowa Parrot Rescue! You can help by leaving a vote for Sam that day! I really appreciate every vote that will mean money for the IPR! Tell your friends who may not know me and Thank you in advance!!

I know the BC has been slowing down and many birds have lost interest lately but I hope you will all get out to support Sam and the IPR!

I hope your day is just perfect!

I hope you are all enjoying the day! It's dry here now but the dark clouds are rolling in again. I'm enjoying watching the flags in front of the complex blow in the wind! They have Tulips on them and are very pretty.
We are just doing the usual Saturday morning cooking. There is chili in the crockpot and chicken cooking on the stove. It's going to be chicken enchiladas. Everyone works different schedules around here so mom tries to get some meals done that everyone can just heat and eat when they have the time. I help out by tasting the tortillas and a few beans just to make sure they are good!hehehehehehe
Not much else going on today. Mom has to get her things ready for her workweek and then get some sleep before she has to head out tonight.
I hope you have a fabulous day! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!

I hope you are having a great day! It's rainy up here but the gardeners came anyway! They pulled out all the flowers out of the planters and the front last week so they are going to be planting more today! I can't wait to see what they are going to plant! It was violets and pansies last time. Perhaps we will get some marigolds this time! They are always pretty to look at!
The evil vacuum seems to be working great and I didn't growl nearly as much last time mom used it! I am not going to ever like the evil thing but it seems to make mom happy to have a working one! It's strange what makes the parronts happy!hehehehehehehe
Mom has to go to the market today but after that we are going to hang out around the house. I am hoping mom will find a movie for us to watch tonight and make some popcorn! I love popcorn!
The post office is having their food drive tomorrow so later on I will help mom get the bag ready to leave out tomorrow. I picked applesauce to donate because I love to eat it! Mom said it was very nice of me and that she is sure anyone who gets it will love it!
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 fantastic day!
Mom came home all excited this morning and told me to wait to see what she bought! Are you ready for this??
A VACUUM! Wasn't one in the house enough? You know I hate those things! Why she thought I would be as excited as she was is beyond me!!
She told me she had been looking at this one for a while and waited for today since it was on sale, it is senior discount day and you get a free 10$ gift card with it. It is a Hoover Windtunnel 2 for Pets! Since you don't need a vacuum to pick up feathers or wood chunks, I am placing the blame for this disaster on Mandy and Merlin! If mom would just shave them we would not have a need for the vacuum!!
Mom said the other one is just too old and doesn't work well anymore! That's because the horrible thing has been vacuuming up dog and cat hair for years! I do have to say that this one is much quieter and has lovely red accessories but it's still a vacuum!
You do not need to feel sorry for me since I know you have to put up the the same thing!! Parronts are such clean freaks!!
I will try to enjoy my day anyway and I hope you do too!

  Hi Martini
Last Wednesday, I started cough/sneeze really LOUD! Then I flew to the floor and spread out my wings and started to hyperventilate. I was unable to perch on mom's hand. She called the vet and found out that he was on vacation. They sent me to another place. It was a 2 hour drive there. I held on to mom's finger the whole way. I was very stressed out for a couple of days. I'm slowly getting better.
Today, I woke up in a good mood, had breakfast, and then played. Later, I took a long nap in the afternoon. When I woke up, I played a little again. After dinner, I went right back to playing and tonight, I started using my words again. I haven’t spoken any words since I’ve been sick. Mom isn’t happy with that ER vet, we have waited all day for her to call back. I know that mom will feel better after we talk to my own avian vet on Friday. I hope he doesn’t get rid of my awesome hawk claws! Have a good night.
Hugs
Chyna

  Hello Martini~
I hope all is well at your nest. It's just fine here. We are getting ready for the little niece Maddie who is coming for a visit today. I don't usually like the little humans but Maddie and I get along well. She is rather quiet and I appreciate that! The one's who make a lot of noise and move around too much make me nervous!
I have my cage all neat and tidy! I want to set a good example for the little one! Actually mom wants me to be a good example! I think I should show her how much fun ripping up newspaper can be!
Enjoy the weekend! I hope you get to have lots of fun!

  Hi Martini
We did have a nice Easter. We had ham and it was good. I got two new toys from the bunny and they sure were good to chew up. I have good memories of them ... hehe.
Did you see the pick of mom on my page .... our Easter egg hunt?
It was just another dreary day today. Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter … here comes the sun … lalalalala. I hope so!
The vet says that Blue (54066) is doing greyt but, has to wait 2 more weeks before the stitches come out. She still needs prayers.
Hugs

  Hello Martini~
Please, no worries about not being able to come by during my BOTD reign. You were my King, right beside me in my heart. It's good to know you survived while your family was away. It's really a shame you weren't more comfortable at the vacation house — I think you could've gone along more often. I can tell you right now I'd likely to a lot of worried squawking if I were trucked off to a different place. Can't blame you for being worried or upset or whatever it is you felt there. There's just no place like HOME, is there.

I'm sorry you missed out on ham this past Easter weekend. My weekend was nice in that I got to go outside and hang in the bird pen for awhile, just me and mom. That's when the picture with the tulips was taken. They were in a pot which Dad held help while I sat on mom's finger and she snapped the photo. I thought I was pretty special, getting all that attention.

Isn't it going to be really odd when You Know Who goes far away to school and you don't see him for months at a time. Just a second! Is that a little smirk on your beak? You can hardly wait, can you! You've probably thought lots about not having to share your Mama and I bet you love the idea. Can't blame you there.

Well, I've lots of thank you notes to answer concerning being BOTD so I'd best be on my way. Glad you've got your Mama back home again. That makes for a Happy Martini!

Kisses from your Riza~Girl

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having the most wonderful Easter ever! Things got busy around here so I have to keep it short today!
We are cooking a ham but we are not really going to have a sit down dinner since mom and Ian are working. Dad is in Montana somewhere! Everyone will eat when they can!

Mom finally got herself an MP3 player. Her's broke months ago and she just can't stand the "Leisure Suit Larry Lounge" music anymore! She found all the music files and started loading songs on the MP3 but when she looked, the songs were not there! It took my genius mom about half and hour to realize that Jennifer had her MP3 player plugged in also so mom put all that music on Jennifer's MP3 player! Boy is she going to be surprised!hahahahahahaha Mom is such a dork!!

Happy Easter!!

Happy Easter Weekend!

I'm wishing you a wonderful weekend with your family and if they happen to be gone, then sweet visits with Lisa when she comes to take care of you.

Thank you for the kisses I know you share with me tonight. I'm here to share a bunch with you!

  Hello My Sweetie!
It's a bright sunny morning here, something that makes me so happy, and with feeling happy I also wanted to come chat with you for a bit.

First though I want to wish your Mom a belated Happy Birthday! I can just picture you giving her lots of extra kisses and cuddles on her special day. I hope she had an extra nice celebration. And mercy, I hope that rain storm didn't mess up any of her plans.

Another reason for being happy besides the sunshine is that mom has taken pity on me and allowed me to hang out in the big room again for part of the day. I was so happy yesterday when I got carried over to Alfie's cage and LEFT, I didn't make a peep for the entire afternoon. I'm on Al's cage again right now, raiding his foraging wheel. That guy leaves behind a lot of little seeds!

I'm wishing my flight feathers would hurry up and grow back in. They got trimmed back when I was being a very naughty girl and trying to bounce some of the bigger birds. I need them so that time in the bird barn is more interesting than just sitting in one place.

Happy Wednesday. I send to you a great big sunny ((hug)) and of course lots of conure~kisses

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a great day! It's very pretty here! A real spring day!
Mom was off last night and she'll be off again on Friday. She couldn't get two days off in a row this week because there is too much work. It's clearance week plus they added a special weekend ad. The store is having it's Fuschia event this weekend so there will be special sales to go along with it. It's an annual event and everyone looks forward to it. They have geranium and fuschia starts for sale and if you bring your own pot the garden staff will plant them for you. Hanging baskets are a big thing up here so by next week you will be seeing them everywhere.
I have spent the morning trying to keep Merlin away from mom! He had his outside on the balcony time and play with the ribbon time but he is trying to butt into my climb on mom time! I told him he needs to go grab a nap until I'm ready for my apple and then he can jump up on the computer desk again!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's a spectacular day!

  Hi Martini
Thanks for liking my pre-derby hat. Soon I will have my official derby hat up.
Happy B-day to your mom, hope she has a wonderful day. I wish I could send her that necklace to wear. My mom wants it too. That was part of the pirate booty from last month.
The snow is lower on the windows now but still on the glass.
Today we had freezing rain, rain and snow the rest of the day. Saturday will be rain and snow. But, Sunday will be sunny and 40’s at least for four days. I hope so! Winter just will NOT go away!
Think derby and warm weather! It's pizza night at our house too!
Hugs

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a great day! It's been pretty nice here with just a bit of rain. Rain is normal up here anytime of the year so everything just goes on like it's not raining!
The mud slide was way north of Seattle and I live about 35 miles south of Seattle. It is just awful and no one expected it to happen. Mom has a strict rule about not living in a canyon or on the edge of a hill top. The views are beautiful but with all the rain we have something is going to slide eventually. Where we live is mostly forest and that is what mom loves ~ forests!
Not much going on around here lately. Mom and the kids went to see Captain America last night and enjoyed that. Mom told me about the poster for Rio II! I hope they get it on DVD quickly so I can see it. I love the first one and have watched it a bunch of times!
Mom is going to the market and to the library today! I need a new stack of story books to read! I read one everyday and I really enjoy it.
You enjoy your day!! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!
Love you ~ Sugar

  Good morning, Mr. Cutie!
Did you have sweet dreams last night in your shamrock tent? I sure hope so. Mine dreams were of this wonderful Sunnie who gives me this nicest good night kisses every single evening. You are simply the sweetest, Martini! I just love you so much.

Something tells me that if you and I were together in the same room, things would definitely get loud. But then too, I bet we'd eventually get all quiet and stuff as we just sit there and look at each other, admiring the top quality Sunny features. You asked about Jensen being noisy, oh my yes, he's about as bad as I am, but for shorter bursts of time. Zoren is the next loudest but his racket comes at a moment of panic, like when the hawk flies by our window. He gets in on the morning and evening contact call fest Jensen and I have to do. Kirby, he couldn't be noisy if you squeezed him! He's got a little squeak but Jensen and I laugh at how tiny it is. Paige is Kirby's new buddy. She's been with us for a year in April. She's so pretty — she's a Fancy Yellow-sided conure. There are pictures of her and Kirby and well as a third little surprise conure named Felix. He was an unexpected arrival to the flock. The three GCC together can't make near the racket I can, and you know what? I'm proud of that fact. Honestly tho, I'm not loud all the time, just like I'm sure you're not either. The other day I was out on mom's shoulder and didn't make a peep which she said was nice, and that her ear appreciated being spared a squawk right in it. As for being a part of a large flock, well, it has its perks I suppose but I assure you, there are lots of times I sit and stare out the window, fantasizing about what it must be like to be the one and only. *sigh* Speaking of flockmates, did I tell you that I've been a very nice girl to a pair of the cockatiels? They decided they wanted to lay some eggs in the bottom of my cage and guess what? I didn't mind them doing that! I let them come and go as they please, I leave them be when their under my papers and even let them drink out of my water dish. Sometimes I have to get down on the floor to do a little paper shredding but they know I won't bother their little eggs so they don't do that hissing thing that they do to any others that want to look under the papers. Mom tells me she's so proud of me for being such a sweet hostess to the 'Tiel couple. Of course their eggs are never going to hatch because, sshhhhhh, they've been switched out for fake ones. I think they've figured it out now because they aren't sitting on them as much now. In fact, today, they both ducked under the curtain between my room and the big bird room and went out there to hang with some of the other 'tiels.

Oh my, I've been rambling on forever! I'd best let you go. Thanks so much for the kisses you send me each night. I love them!

Kisses to you ~ XXxxXXxx

Your girl, RIZA •v•

I hope you had a really great day! I just hung out and played with toys mostly. Mom and I sorted out some drawers and got rid of some stuff that we don't use anymore. It was fun to see what was in the drawers but there wasn't anything that interested me in there!
I hope you evening is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a fabulous day! I am having a late start today. Mom gave a friend a ride home this morning and he lives in the middle of nowhere!! Really! The city he lives in is called Kapowsin. There are only about 300 people who live there. Lots of horese and cows and roads that are unpaved! Mom had to drive very slowly because there are tons of holes all along the roads! It's only half an hour away but it's a whole different world out there! I could scream and scream and no one would notice! Cool!hahahahahaha
Enjoy your Sunday and I hope it's just spectacular!

  Hi Martini
Sounds like you had a nice St Paddy's Day. I haven't done anything new either. It's been so depressing with all the snow. We hit 180 inches for the season. The record is 183. We still can't see out the windows. There is still 3 to 4 feet out there! We so need a really good melt and soon. I have my flip flops ready to wear on the patio. That nasty polar vortex killed so many deer, turkeys and swans up here. I hope it doesn't come back next year.
I enjoyed a nibble of b-day cake today. My skinsis had a b-day ... she's a spring baby.
Happy Spring every birdie! We had a sunny day with a balmy 33 degrees. I hope it gets better and better.
Hugs
Chyna
