I love Corn.

I am happiest when I'm sitting on my dad's sholder.

I don't like being ignored.

We play all my favorte games and sometimes just sit and watch TV together.

I don't like to be left alone. I pulled out some of my breast feathers to teach my dad a lesson. It worked..

Stay close to the ones you love. Much too soon, they are gone..

  Hi Popeye
Bye bye babies. I know your dad will miss them. And what are keepers?

I am having a quiet day today. Mom colored her feathers this morning, but she spent time with me before, and afterwards we went out for my sunbath. It was just beautiful out there. I dropped my nutriberry, so Mom was planning on picking it up and giving it back to me after a bit. When she looked up to see about doing it, I was gnawing away on it. Never let a good nutriberry go to waste!

It being Wednesday this afternoon Mom will run off to the gym and train then zumba. It means I get no late afternoon time with her, but she always joins me as soon as she gets home. That also means Mom isn't here when Dad gets home from work. He always pokes his head in to say hello to me, and since Mom is not here I am polite with him. I only scream at him when I have to protect my mom. He likes Wednesdays.

  Hi Popeye
Today might be mom's last day blogging for a couple of days. Tomorrow is the surgery, and the follow up appointment is on Friday, so we may not be back until Saturday.
It got really chilly here today, not expected to get out of the low 40s, and there's a possibility of some snow flurries. I say SPRING is no time for snow! Phooey!
Mom cleaned the outdoor raptor mews and aviaries today then did the middle room of the hospital called the Runs. It's for a wide variety of animals, but there were all birds in there today, except for one snapping turtle. She hasn't done that room for awhile, so it was interesting to her.
Then she went to the grocery store to get our veggies and fruits, since she didn't go yesterday. (She and Lena had walked to lunch and back, so she had to come straight home to put in the eye drops the doc wants her to use.) After buying our goodies, mom went to the nail salon to get the polish removed from one nail on each hand prior to the surgery. Tonight she has to go back to the center for a class on animal medicine, but she's going to get some laundry done before she leaves.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of attention and maybe some sun and warm weather, too. Hugs, Falco

Think we were told about SweetPea but forgot. Such a pretty bird. Does she still love dad?
Our mom is still dependent on the family for doing stuff like cooking, so she does not have much say over what gets fixed.
Coolish here, but SUNNY.

So Dad got the oven all fixed. He's pretty handy, isn't he? Guess you better keep him around, even if he is always cleaning up those messes you work so hard to create.

HAPPY EARTH DAY!! SAVE A TREE!

I am having a quiet day here. Just a bit cooler, so Mom is waiting till 1:30 to take me out for my sunbath. It is supposed to hit 72 then. That is about as cool as she likes to take me out in.

Then she is heading over to the local library. That means more books to read with me, so I guess I will let her go. Besides she is stopping at the pet store to pick up nutriberries on the way home. I really do think she should be with me 24/7 though.

Are you voting for your favorite lady and gent hat pics every day? Sure hope so.

Happy Earth Day! It's raining here, so the earth will be shooting up more flowers and green grass soon in celebration of her special day. Mom spotted some buds on the lilac this morning when she walked the dogs. Spring is here!
Today is a relaxing day for mom. She is will meet Lena and see her new apartment, then go to lunch with her. It's always fun to spend time with her grands. She will then do some shopping for us, fruits and stuff. Later she is meeting her sister to plan strategies for Thursday, the date for mom's surgery. They have to figure what time they're leaving and see exactly where the place is. It's an outpatient surgery center, not the hospital where mom thought it was. Most of the day is ours, though.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of love and scritchies. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Popeye
If the Big Fish movie is the one that came out several years ago and is kind of a fantasy thing, Mom saw it and loved it. And the Albertson's by us has killer fried chicken. We have it at least once a month. Much better (and cheaper) than KFC.

After Mom got home from the gym today, she once again insisted on a shower before my sunbath. The trainer worked on balance with her today. You would think that would be easy, but it really made my mom sweat. The trainer says that is because you have to use your entire body. BTW Mom has lousy balance, but the trainer said she was improved even by the end of the session. Then, of course, she did zumba and got even sweatier.

However I did finally get her to myself and we went out for my sunbath. No one came by or bothered us, so I had Mom all to myself. After the nutriberry treat (now a standard feature of the sunbaths...yippee!) I did my best to share it with Mom's fingers, but she wasn't having it. I just don't understand why she rejects my love offerings.

That sounds like a good meal. The egg salad sounds good, too. What especially sounds good though, is that you aren't in lockdown!
Well, yesterday was sure a success. The food was delicious, the company was a lot of fun, and mom even got a haircut in the middle of it all! Her colored deviled eggs were a huge success, so next year, she's going to make even more. They disappeared in a hurry. Some people weren't even here yet, so they never even saw them.
Today mom picked up the eye meds she has to do before and after surgery. She also dropped off wedding soup to Mary at the nail salon. At the center, she did birds and the outdoor ground hog cage. There are some interesting birds in the avian nursery, a yellow bellied sapsucker, for instance. They are always fun to see up close. There are about 6 screech owls in there, too. Anyway, she's home and ours for the rest of the day! Hope you are having the bright sunshine we are getting today. We're supposed to go up into the low 70s, mom hopes that's true! Here's a hug for you, Falco

  Hi Popeye
Sounds like you had a good day yesterday. The egg dip for bagel chips sounds like a good idea. Kinda reminds me of the moat story.
Our parronts had ham, sweet potatoes, pistachio salad, coleslaw, and zucchini bread with peach cobbler for dessert. WE got a bit of sweet potato. Skinsis was the chef with minimal help from dad. Mom's hand is still not really functional.
The storms that were predicted seem to be hesitating, so we may not have the rain. Still partly sunny--we like that.

  Hi Popeye
Good to hear that the bank returned the money. Bad to hear about all the errors on PayPal. Mom uses it a lot, and now she is a bit paranoid.

Happy Easter!!

I had an adventure last night! I haven't gone after Dad in quite a while in order to lull him into a false sense of security. He always peeks in to my room when Mom is in there with me, and he chats with her. I am OK, unless she chats back. Well, last night she did, and then the foolish man made his mistake. Instead of backing out of my room as usual, he turned around to leave. I was on him in a heartbeat and knocked his baseball cap right off as he ran down the hall. He has a ponytail which I was hanging from. I kept trying for his ear, but he kept shaking that darned pony tail. Since Mom came right after us, by then she caught up and swept me up. Since I didn't succeed in biting Dad and never even considered biting Mom, I didn't get a time out. So my only punishment was the disappointment of failure. Next time.....

I am having a greyt time today. I already got to go out for my sunbath, and I watched while my mom fed the gardenia tree. I squawked instructions the entire time, so she would do it right. Then we came back in to read, and when Dad poked his head in? Well, that was as close as he came! Guess I will get the respect I deserve from that man for a while now (till he forgets again).

  Hello Popeye~
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!!

Dinner sounds really good! You can't mention cole slaw around mom or she's out the door to get some. Actually she has the mix in the fridge! She loves that stuff. That was the one thing she didn't like about Famous Daves BBQ. They don't give you enough!

Happy Easter!! Tell dad to relax today!

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you are all having a great day! We are happy to hear that the bank problem is resolved. Were they able to tell your parront why it happened??
Mom uses PayPal every month to make a donation to the Iowa Parrot Rescue and she has never had a problem with them. She has never used it to buy something so perhaps it's a different part of the company. She does get a bunch of junk mail from people claiming to be PayPal but she never opens them.
I sure hope it never happens again. A lot of the experts admit that nothing is 100% safe online!
Are you guys staying home for Easter? Mom and Ian have to work so mom will cook in the morning and everyone can eat when they want to!
Enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Popeye
I hope mom got everything straightened out at the bank.
Mom made our Easter bread yesterday, which is pretty much an all day affair. There are so many eggs in it, it takes forever to rise. She also did the hard custard, so it's in the fridge. She decided to do deviled eggs and dye the egg whites this year, so they are in the fridge as well. This way, people will eat them and she won't end up with a dozen hard boiled eggs. Last night she found a fish fry at a local church, so that's where she got dinner. It wasn't as good as the place she usually goes, though.
Today mom worked the Easter Egg Hunt at the museum. Guess where they put her? Yep, Bird Hall with a trainee. It was fun, the kids were so excited and the touchables were a hit, too. Everyone who stopped got a plastic egg with an owl shaped eraser inside.
Now mom is making the wedding soup for tomorrow. All in all it's going to be a good dinner, we think. We will get a sample of pasta and veggies, and maybe some salad out of it. I won't eat any, but the others will enjoy the treats. Hope you are having a good day, warm, sunny, and filled with love. Happy Easter! Hugs, Falco

  Hi opeye
Interested in hearing how your mom makes out with the bank, since my mom came so close to having the same issue on PayPal.

Nice sunbath today, but the neighbor came over and talked to Mom for half of it. I didn't squawk at him which surprised my mom a lot, but he is pretty big...even bigger than Dad. I didn't even want my nutriberry, so Mom brought me back inside after 30 minutes because she knew I was uncomfortable.

Don't forget to stop by the milonga page tomorrow night between 8PM EDT (5PM PDT) for the "viewing of the hats". The pics of the contestants in the hat contest will be displayed in the gallery for your perusal, and then the voting begins on Sunday. It isn't really a milonga, but there will be food done by Lizzie, and Sam might stop by with the Scruffy birds for a jam session. See you there?

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you are all having a wonderful day! We were so sorry to hear that your mom and dad had someone steal money from them. Mom doesn't think anyplace on the internet is safe from hackers. It seems like if they want to get at it they can. Do you think it was from the Target hack?? Michaels Arts and Crafts had it happen also. I expect that companies have to have someone watching over everything 24-7! They got into Targets system through a vendor computer. Mom's store took preventative measures when that happened and now mom has to keep the office door locked all the time. All the employee records are in there and they wanted to make sure no one could get in who wasn't suppose to get in. It's a little creepy for mom since she is the only one up there at night but she understands that being careful is better than being hacked. We sure hope they straighten it out quickly.
You all enjoy your day and I hope it's just spectacular!

Oh no, that's terrible. I hope mom can get that money back! Do you think that will happen?
Mom loved 12 years a slave, it was a good, but sad, movie. I'm sorry you were in lockdown, though.
Well, it's Good Friday, so mom made the Easter bread dough this morning. She usually does it today because she doesn't have museum or wildlife center responsibilities.
Bree came yesterday and I gave her and mom a run for their money! I flew all over the place until Bree finally caught me in mom's lightweight jacket, because the towel wasn't big enough. She left me my wings, though, because Daisy still hasn't learned manners with us birds, and mom wants all of us to have an escape, just in case.
Willie was the drama king, as usual, crying before Bree even got near him with the clippers. He's so funny! Peppino was okay, except he bit mom pretty hard because she let his head out of the towel. She'll learn in time. We all got my favorite treat, movie popcorn nutriberries, when Bree was done. She always says Millie and Lily are the best behaved, and they never want a treat for it.
Today, as well as the Easter bread, mom will boil eggs for deviled eggs, and make the hard custard that the family calls Easter Cheese. Everyone looks forward to it each year. Hope you are enjoying some sunshine today. It's a bit overcast here, but pretty nice, and it's supposed to hit the 70s on Sunday! I'll believe that when I see it, though. Here's a big hug today for you! Hugs, Falco

  Hi Popeye
Someone tried to trick Mom into giving up her PayPal info a while back, but she caught it and forwarded it to their security dept. You just can't be too careful.

Well, today sure was a lazy day for Mom and me. Mom never even got out of her jammies. Of course, since they are yoga pants and a t-shirt it doesn't really matter, but she felt very daring when we went out front for my sunbath. Nobody walked by though. She took out a sampler of LaFebre Avicakes for my treat, and may I say yuck! I took it thinking it was a nutriberry, but it was definitely one nibble and drop! It was a pack of six of them, so Mom broke it up and tossed them around the yard. Hopefully the wild birds will like them better than I did. Mom even thought they smelled icky. I got a big ole nutriberry as soon as we came back inside though.

And we had the pot stickers lunch today, which is the one that has lima beans in it. I sure do love those things. The ones in the lunch are especially good, because they are cooked with that yummy Chinese sauce. I like them so much I let Mom have the rest of the lunch. Just give me them beans!

  Hi Popeye
I'm glad all was well with the chimney. Hope the repair works for dad, too.
Mom had 2 tours this morning, one with Kindergarten kids and one with fifth grade. I like the pulling a train with your teeth analogy for the K kids, thanks, Cookie's mom! Mom always says it's like herding cats. They were pretty much all over the place. The second group was more fun for mom, they were from a rural area in PA, so knew a lot of the plants and animals they were looking at already. Mom likes the PA natural history tour, because she can go almost anywhere in the museum and talk about the state. If one area is crowded, she can move on. Tonight Bree is finally coming for the birdicures, so mom and her sister will go out early for dinner. They should get back in plenty of time.
I hope you are having a lovely day filled with sun, warmer temps, and lots of love. Hugs, Falco

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you had a great day! We are happy that the fireplace is okay but it really bites about the oven! Especially when you had those lovely pizzas ready to be cooked. We love Papa Murphys!
I spent the day watching Myth Busters with the skin sister. Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night so she took a nap this afternoon. We wanted to be able to stay up tonight and watch a movie and have some pizza! It is nice to have some time just to sit around and enjoy a movie.
I hope you all enjoy your evening too!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar

  Hi Popeye
So was Dad able to fix the oven himself? If so, Mom and I are very impressed!

Having a pretty nice day here today, even though Mom left this morning to get her nails done. She also stopped by the eye doc's to talk to them about the stupid secondary insurance thinking Medicare should be paying the bills from when my mom's eyes were messed up, but Mom is only on Medicare for overnight stays in the hospital. Doc was very cool about it, because they have had the problem before with other patients. They will bill Medicare, be declined and then the insurance co will have to pay. She also spent about 20 minutes on the phone with our primary insurance about the fact they are not covering our prescriptions properly. The lady finally admitted it and ordered an audit. Insurance stinks! But you have to have it.

Now for the eggciting news. As you may remember when Mom first got my new and larger outside carrier for my sunbaths I wanted nothing to do with it. Then I finally allowed Mom to put me in it, and once I was there I was fine. Today I climbed into it myself for the first time with no griping all ready for my sunbath! Good thing it was already warm outside. Mom took nutriberries out with us, because she was so pleased with me and kept telling me what a good boy I am. Of course I am a good boy. That's what I keep telling her, silly lady.

  Hi Popeye
Mom meant to share this on Monday, but forgot. Remember when she was at the parrot class on Sunday? Well, she learned something new there that all of us should be aware of. You know that zinc is toxic to birds, but did you know that there is zinc in those rubber balls, footballs, and all other soft rubber toys? Mom didn't know that! No more of that stuff in our cages for sure.
Today mom did the mammal nursery and the groundhog that's out in the first RVS cage. The groundhog is looking pretty good, should be gone soon. There were several squirrel babies in the mammal nursery as well as one injured adult possum. Many of the squirrels are still being hand fed, but a couple have their eyes open and are eating on their own now. It seems so soon!
Hope you are having a nicer day than we are. It got down into the low 20s last night, and it's slow to warm up today. The sun is out, but it's still really cold. I hope you get lots of love today, too. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Pops, love from Jenny Lynn
I think old man Winter is just trying to scare us, but after what we all have been through, IT WON'T WORK! We will only have time for a few notes today, we got a million things to finish, plus the usual cleaning, you know the drill! Is everybody ready to celebrate the Resurrection on Sunday, dad loved it as a young man, the church, Easter dinner, and that joy has carried through to adulthood! Have a great day dear friends, and give my love to all in your home, see ya tomorrow...

Much love from Jennifer

  Hi Popeye
I am sure Mom wouldn't recognize Temecula at all if she were to go back there today. She just remembers a lot of sun and dirt.

Well, it's a very quiet day around here, and I have to say I don't mind. Mom had no errands to do, and she is spending most of her day with me. However that also means she has no news for me to report. Hopefully this is one of those no news is good news.

Hope everybirdy is warming up and having a beautiful Spring day like I am. Hoping I will have more news to share tomorrow.
