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..

  Hi Popeye my dear-from Jen & Ms LaLo
We are BOTH back home where we belong, this morning dad woke up to the most pleasant sounds of sweet bird calls and chirps in our home! Aunt Denise brought Jenny also and spent most of the afternoon cleaning Jen's area, cage, and play stand! It has been so long since he heard those wonderful sounds of I Love You, and What's a'matter Chuck from Jenny and whistles of every variety from Ms LaLo! Dad can not thank Denise enough for all she has done for us, she is such a peach and what a human dynamo, thanks to her, our home is complete once again! There is no measurement for our appreciation, but just thanks seems so shallow! Have a Greyt Memorial Day W/E, I know we will, and please give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny, Ms LaLo, Christy, Ziggy, & our very happy daddy

PS~Please be safe if you travel, lots of crazies out there...

  Hi Popeye
Sounds like your folks are having a fun week, and are able to spend time with you, too. That's always good.
Today mom posted some pics of animals at the center. She apologizes for the sideways downy woodpecker pic, it was right side up before it got here! Those are the babies that were in the tree on Saturday. The other pic is Cecilia, our resident barred owl with her foster baby. She's a first time foster mom, and she's doing great!
Mom cleaned the recovery room again today. The falcon has some pep in her step now! She's doing quite well. There is also a red tailed hawk in there who broke its beak. About half the top beak is missing, but we think with time, it will grow back. This bird might be a very long term resident, though. Mom put the raptors into carriers while she did their cages, and the poor hawk didn't want to get back out. Mom had to get the huge gloves back on to get it out of there and into its bigger cage. Usually birds want to get out of the small carriers!
There are 2 ducks, 2 turtles (the one with nail polish and another one), and the mom possum all in there too.
We had our pedicures today. I'd like to report that we were all good, but the boys both were screaming bloody murder! Millie and Lily remain the best of all, and I was even cooperative today. I hope you are having a great day. It's hot and sunny here for now, but showers are predicted for later. Mom is hoping that's true, because things could use more water than she gave them yesterday. She still has to move house plants outside for the summer, but probably will get that done today. I hope you get lots of well deserved attention, cuddles, and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Popeye
Well, Mom sure is enjoying her car radio. Eggspecially since on the way to her arthritis massage with Mattea, the off ramp was closed and traffic slowed to a crawl. Mom took the next exit, which was only 1 mile away, but it took her 10 minutes to get there since she never made it out of 1st gear. Just imagine how nuts she would have been without a radio!! She was late for her appointment, but fortunately it was a slow day for Mattea, and she didn't mind.

Mom joined me to read for a bit when she got home, and now we are trying blogging with me on her shoulder. So far, so good, and I am behaving. How long will that last? We shall see!

Then it will be lunch time, and I am hoping for something with pasta. Mom won't let me have any cake, but she did stick her finger in the Cool Whip and let me lick it off. Yum!! Dad has already eaten half the cake!! What a glutton! Although we must admit he doesn't get sweets very often, so I guess this is a special treat for him.

Becky had to cancel her session with Mom yesterday, because she got stuck in downtown L.A. traffic and couldn't make it back in time. Mom went to the gym anyway, and she managed to hurt her left shoulder working out by herself. She passed on zumba, but she did leave cake for her friends. Becky promised to swing by the gym and pick up hers. And of course, Dad harassed Mom about hurting herself when she came home early, but I was so happy to see her I gave her lots of kisses. You know which one she preferred!

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you are having a great day! Sorry to hear about the problems with the alarm system. Seem like when they do "upgrades" it never works out well. I hope the guy can get it fixed. Do your parronts have to pay a monthly charge for the alarm or do they own it outright?
A very long time ago my dad use to make screens that plugged into the alarm system in a house. That way you could leave the window open and the alarm would still be armed. He and his dad did it but after his dad passed away dad sold the business.
Have a great day!

  Hi Popeye
How's everything?
Congratulations to my brother Willie on getting to 20k votes, and to my friend Chyna for making her 30k votes! The party at the HOF should be in full swing right now. We're heading back there as soon as our blogs are done.
Mom had 2 tours again today. The first was with sixth grade on biomes and climate change. They were great! It was an all girl group, because the teacher had separated them out that way. Mom thinks that's a good idea for 6 and up, because then the girls aren't shy about answering and asking questions. The second group was fourth grade in dinosaurs. One of the chaperones was a former docent! Mom knew her well, so had her help out with the touchable skulls during the tour. Those kids were fantastic! But you knew mom would say that: 4th grade, dinosaurs...
Today after we're finished, mom is going to water the plants, hopefully finish planting all the other stuff Jeff brought over last night, and get the house plants outside for their summer vacation. After that she's ours for the day/night! Tomorrow we have birdicures scheduled, yuck!
I hope you are having that fine weather like we are having here, low 80s, sunny, and beautiful. Have a fun day, get lots of cuddles and scritches, too. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Pops & John-from Jenny & Dad
...dad does in fact have an emergency Freedom Alert to wear around his neck, but he wanted to know that an ambulance would not be called, he will not go back to any hospital ever again, unless he is dying! There are 4 phone numbers programmed into it, and one is our across the street neighbor man! Dad talked to him early this morning when he came to take our trash around to the alley! He told dad not to worry! Dad was up early getting things ready for Ms LaLo, it is a labor of pure love, and he is looking forward to a visit with our dear friend aunt Denise! Very few notes today, but we wish you all a great Thursday and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

  Hi Pops from- Jenny & daddy
Today dad has his PT instructor coming into our home, he does not dread that as much as at first, but he still hates the privacy intrusion! He is still slow, but he can tell he is getting stronger! We will be in the mid-eighties again today, but no complaints here, this is what we have been waiting for all Winter! Dad has to roll LaLo's cage back into her room and fix it up for her return home, Jenny won't be coming just yet! Sometimes something good happens even at our home, and while dad was resting, we got the sweetest phone call from our dear aunt Eileen and Sugar, they are top shelf friends, and McKenzie was squeaking her toy the whole time! Have a great ToosDay dear friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny, Ms LaLo, Christy, Ziggy, & our daddy

This was on my page, but it's for you!
Hi Popeye
Mom sent your dad an email. The oil wells are gone from Signal Hill? Wow! Guess it's been a long time since MOm went by there.

Mom abandoned me for the gym this morning, but I guess that will be the case for as long as Becky is still there. She said she got written up for "attitude" again, but the management's main problem with her is that the other trainers look to Becky as their leader. She is hoping to finish out the month, and if she does Mom will get all her remaining six sessions with Becky. Anyway Mom did zumba after her session, but once again had to leave after 30 minutes. Her left shoulder (not the one she had surgery on) is becoming more and more painful. Becky wants her to go see the doc, but Mom will no doubt put it off as long as possible.

I have her for the rest of the day though, and that is a good thing. She has lots of reading material, so we are ready to roll. We shared a Swedish Meatball lean cuisine for lunch, and Mom spices it up and adds cottage cheese to make it creamy and up the protein level. When she gets done with it, it really is pretty tasty. I just ate the pasta though. I wasn't in a meat mood today.

I hope you are having a fabulous day! We have that Windows 10 and mom swears it changes things all on it's own! Mom doesn't know enough to figure it all out but she was able to show Ian some things that changed and he knew mom didn't know how to do it. He ran a security scan and it was all okay but it still acts strangely sometimes. Mom doesn't trust it at all!
Enjoy the day sweetie and I hope it's a fun one!

  Hi Popeye
Wow, that's a lot of news! Sorry dad's leg is still hurting. It's too bad dad lost all his contacts and emails, too.
Hope they had fun at the aquarium, that sounds like fun.
Mom's tours yesterday were great, she enjoyed each one of them. She had a question on the last one that she didn't answer to the woman's satisfaction, and she really tried to answer it to the best of her ability. The question was very unclear, though, so maybe that was the problem.
We had a lovely time with mom after she got home, though. We all got our cuddles and scritches from her, and she even sang and danced with us.
Those baby woodpeckers that were rescued on Saturday are doing well.
Today mom cleaned the bunny room at the center. She also prepared 3 more cages for incoming patients in the treatment room. It seems that as soon as some bunnies leave, there are others to take their places. Mom also fed the mom possum, the falcon, and the mallard in the recovery room, as well as doing 3 laundry tubs full of dishes. She was going to run out for bird seed but she's tired, so may do it tomorrow instead. It seems the wild birds around here are eating up the suet and seed as soon as it gets put outside!
I hope you're having a great day, getting lots of sunshine and some cuddles and scritches, too. Hugs, Falco

...we are sending a prayer for our dear uncle.s leg wound, we totally understand what is involved, be well uncle John, you are very loved by our family! Dad was so tired yesterday afternoon, he fell asleep on the couch in LaLo's room and did not wake up until after 7:00 PM, then he couldn't sleep well the rest of the night, go figure! We will be in the 80's for the rest of the week with a chance of rain and clouds everyday, so it goes in the Springtime in the Mid-West! Dad has a ton of things to get done again today, so he better get at it! Enjoy your Monday to the fullest, and give our undying love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

  Hi Popeye
First of all let's chat about Windows 10. Mom tried it when it was first released, hated it, and deleted it. However that Nag Tag keeps coming up, and now after your dad's experience she is concerned about it loading itself. However she doesn't know how to use that number you gave out in your blog. Could your dad email her with more instructions for a computer dummy?

I posted an announcement on the Calendar and Milonga pages last night about the June Milonga. It is going to be Prom Night, and there is another pic contest! So check it out, and if you would like to run for Prom King or Queen, or one of their Royal Court get working on a pic. All the details for the contest are in the announcement.

Still just a little chilly for a sunbath, although it did make it up to 71 today. Unfortunately there is a cool breeze that Mom doesn't want to expose me to. So it is another day of full spectrum lamp, but it is also a day of reading a good book for Mom so I know I will get lots of her time.

Other than that, not much going on here in So Cal. Hope all is well at your house, and I will see you tomorrow.

Well it is no exaggeration, Exaggerator won the Pimlico Preakness, and looked good doing it! He was closing fast at the Kentucky Derby, sorry about no triple crown this year, but that was a very exciting race, Nyquist will always a classy horse! Dad has to make up ground today, he did not meet any of his goals for yesterday! He did however drive his SUV to fill it up, and get gas for the lawn mower, even a minister at a small grocery store, that marked the first time he had driven in nearly 3 months, very exciting for him!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Hope the parronts and flock are all well and happy!
Mom is still sick and trying to get better but it's been slow going. She feels better when she wakes up but after being up for a while she wants to go back to bed!hahahahaha We know that is not going to happen. Mom is lucky if she gets 5 hours sleep a day. What she really needs to just rest for an entire day but when you have a puppy there is no such thing as rest during the day! At least tomorrow night she can sleep since McKenzie is so good about going to bed!
The husband of the lady mom works with is starting his Hyperbaric Chamber treatments today. He has to do it for at least a week but probably two weeks. It's suppose to make the wound completely heal during that time. He has to stay in it for an hour but it takes half an hour to raise the oxygen up and then half an hour to lower it down, so it's a 2 hour treatment. Sure hope it works for him. We'll let you know.
Hope you guys enjoy the day!

Is everything okay? Still haven't heard from you, and I'm starting to get worried.
Congratulations to all the winners from the Milonga Derby last night; Jenny, Cookie, and Chyna for their first place wins, especially, but also Dixie and Raffikki for place and show in the race. It was a wonderful evening, great party! Thanks to all who helped to make it possible, especially Chyna and the regular milonga crew.
It's really chilly here today, in the mid 40s and not going anywhere all day. Mom is off, so was going to get some planting done, but that's out the window now. I suspect she'll spend some time catching up on reading instead. She's started collecting her summer stash of books, but there are a few science ones in there that she wants to read, too. There's one by Bill Nye, another called the Sixth Extinction, and the one she can't wait to get to called the Field Guide to Mesozoic Birds and other Winged Dinosaurs.
Tonight she and the family celebrate with Mother's day dinner out. Her daughter made reservations, and mom isn't sure where they are going, but is sure it will be good. I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of the sunshine and good weather we are lacking, as well as lots of well deserved attention today. Hugs, Falco

I hope you are having a great day! Mom is having to delete her contacts on her phone and then add them back in order to get the text messaging to work! It's crazy! Ian has a smart phone that he is not using now and mom is probably going to switch to that one. She has an old phone that doesn't do any of that stuff. Dad and the kids share the data package but dad is always going over! He is already 2 gb over for the month! Mom told him he needs to back off on it! If mom gets the smart phone she won't be able to do anything if dad keeps using all the data! Dad doesn't think having to pay 15$ per gb over is a big deal! Mom does! At least the data resets tonight!
Have a fabulous day sweetie!

  Hi Popeye
Well, voting for the Derby Hat Contest ended yesterday, and the winning names have been sent to Taz for creation of the awards. Now don't anybirdy bother either him or me about who won, because it is our secret!! Come to the Derby on Saturday to find out.

Gloria is home! However she has no radio. It turned out that the drain on the battery was a short in the radio, which is a special one that includes some of the smog equipment. So Mom has no choice but to get it fixed. However after driving Gloria to her therapeutic massage (15 miles) and back, Mom knows she has to have a radio. She thinks it was about every 3 minutes that she thought about turning on the radio!! So the radio is being sent out for repair, since Mom's mechanic doesn't do that kind of work. Hopefully it won't be too eggspensive. And they did decide the battery had been too abused and needed replaced. However since it was still under warranty that was free! Free is always good!

I did get a sunbath today, but it was after Mom got home from her massage. We were all set, with the front door open and me lured onto Mom's lap to share her half sandwich when there was a knock at the door. It was some guy selling pesticide service, and since the door was open Mom couldn't pretend she wasn't home. She sent him on his way, because we are pesticide free, but then we had to start the "getting into the carrier routine" all over again. Mom used my bell in a ball toy to lure me back on her lap, and then it was 1-2-3 and into the carrier. I do love it once I get out there, and I played in the carrier for a few minutes after we came in. Mom says I do that just to harass her! Who me???

Hope all is well, haven't heard from you this week!
I forgot to tell everyone the other day that my doctor visit went well, but I'm still in the collar for at least another week. The car stuff went well, too, it just took nearly 3 hours.
Today was a long museum day for mom. She had a tour with younger kids (3rd grade) in PA Natural History at 10. It was funny, because they asked to see the Indians, the igloo, and the dodo bird, none of which has anything to do with PA natural history. Still, we aim to please, so got those in, too. Then she had another hour and twenty minute break, before getting the second group. They were 7th graders, and wanted animal adaptations. There were 150 kids and 15 docents for that tour, so mom started in bird hall, because she knew the second floor would be jammed. It worked out well, because by the time they got to Africa, that hall was empty, and only one other group came in while she was in there.
On the way home, mom stopped to pick up her prescriptions and a few veggies and fruits for us. So now she is here, and ours for the rest of the day. It was bright, sunny, and 80 when she left the museum, but by the time she left the market, it was 70 and raining. There was some thunder and lightning, too, so she wanted to get home fast to put Daisy's Thunder shirt on her. Now it seems to be clearing up some, so we'll see what the evening brings. I hope you are having a great day today, getting some good spring weather as well as lots of attention and play time. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, 20k, let's celebrate!, Peppino, vote Laka for BOTM & Falco, vote Laka, 259145, BOTM.

  Hi Popeye
Well, BC was down most of the evening yesterday. I was able to blog in the afternoon, but I couldn't get on last night to tally the votes in the Derby Hat Contest, which means many birdies were not able to vote either. So if that happened to you, please enter two days worth of votes when you go over to the milonga page today. I will count them all. And please make sure you get over there, since today is the last day to vote!!!

Bad news for Mom is that Gloria will not be done today; good news for me though, since that means she stays home from the gym with me all day. They are supposed to call sometime this afternoon to give her an estimate on when she will be done. The drain on the battery has proved elusive so far, but she knows they will find it sooner or later.

We shared White Cheddar Mac and cheese for lunch! One of my favorites, since I do love my pasta and nary a speck of spinach anywhere! Then more time with Mom reading. Good thing she went to the library, although she has over 100 books on her kindle so she won't be running out of reading material any time soon!

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you are having a fun day! Did your mom and dad finished yelling??hehehehehe It doesn't happen around here too often since dad is rarely home. Mom is not one to yell anyway unless it's at the dog. She does a lot of yelling at McKenzie. No McKenzie is the most used phrase in this house!hahahahahaha Really!!
Enjoy the day sweetie!

  Hi Popeye
Mom took Gloria to the car doctor this morning, and she is pretty sure she knows now what happened to the battery. Halfway there all of the interior lights suddenly came on. Obviously a glitch, but if that happened while she was sitting in the driveway for two days, it could easily drain the battery. Mom told them so they could check them out, but Gloria is really in their for a check up. It's time, even if it isn't there in miles since Mom doesn't drive very far anymore. I wonder if they will trim her nails?

And so I have Mom all day today, or at least until they call. And since the guy told Mom they are really backed up, Gloria might not come home till tomorrow, which is fine by me. Mom may take her for that bath when she picks her up, since the car wash is right there. So she will be pretty and healthy!!

Parrotsonally I am doing just fine, although the weather is still in the 60s so no sunbath. They are calling for 78 for a high tomorrow, so I eggspect I will be out there working on my tan....and feathers.

Don't forget the milonga derby is this Saturday. The announcement is on the Calendar Page and the Milonga Page, so check it out!

  Hi sweet Popeye and family, from jenny Lynn
...wow, your mom and dad sure do stay busy entertaining themselves, and they do almost everything together! Thanks to Cookie and aunt Mary for the beautiful Birthday card and gifts you sent for our daddy, that is so sweet of you and your family! Dad's real birthday is May 14th our BC Derby day, but at his age, he does not celebrate them to much anymore, although he loves life and is so thankful to be alive, and he is also thankful for all our loving BC bird friends and parents! We have severe rain and overcast skies today, it is almost still dark outside! Dad has to prep for his PT Therapists, and his sister Donna is coming for a visit and maybe help him pick up some groceries! Have a good ToosDay, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny, Ms LaLo, Angel Christy, Ziggy, & our loving daddy

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you had a fun day! Mine was pretty good. I spent some time chewing up paper and my wood toy. I did a bit of yelling also. Yep! It was a pretty quiet day!
Enjoy the evening sweetie!

  Hi Popeye
Happy Anniversary to Us!! Yep, it has been seven glorious years today since the lovely SweetPepper and I were joined in marital bliss. And may I say that we couldn't be happier!!

Mom is not so happy today though. Once again some interior light that Mom didn't notice got left on in Gloria, and when Mom went out to go to the gym the battery was stone dead. This is getting way too old. And Mom wants to upgrade her AAA to prime and she only had the rest of this month with no service calls to get through. Since she couldn't make it to her session with Becky anyway, she decided to wait until Dad gets home and have him use the jumper cables. So she rescheduled her afternoon doctor's appointment with the GI doc as well, but since she was just going to tell him she doesn't want any more surgeries no hurry for that!

However since that means I get Mom all to myself today and most of tomorrow (Gloria is going to the car doc first thing in the morning since it was almost time for a tune up anyway), I am a happy boy. Mom and I shared a half sandwich of Roast Beast and provolone for lunch and there was nary a shred of spinach to be seen. Good eats!!

  Hi Popeye
Well, for Mother's Day I haven't bitten Mom at all today, even though I am sure she must have deserved it. I did get her most of the day though, so maybe she didn't.

Congrats to Nyquist. Unbeaten!! Don't see how we could have triple crown winner two years in a row, but we shall see. Very eggciting finish!

Mom and Dad rented Star Wars yesterday, and so there was popcorn made last night. They enjoyed the movie a lot, and today I enjoyed my popcorn. Mom laughed when she held up the bowl for me, and I sampled three before I decided the fourth one was the one I wanted. Then she dumped them into my food bowl. Not sure how I feel about that. They don't belong in there.

Dad brought me a little piece of tater chip to once again attempt to win my favor. I KNOW Mom is really making him do it, so it buys him nothing. That is why I wait until after he leaves to eat it. I will not eat in front of him. Come to think of it he has never heard me talk either. He says Mom makes it up; he has heard me laugh and meow though....and imitate Mom's pathetic attempts to whistle.
