I love Corn.

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..

  October BOTM POST number seventeen
Good morning everybirdie, Jesse here once more with your BOTM Adventure Post.
After hiking along the path for a long while, I decide to stop for a moment to rest, and seeing a large rock, I sit down. Well, I look up and see that the grass and trees are up-side-down.
I shake my head, and rub my tired eyes, "I must be seeing things" so peaking another look up, I see that the grass, trees and everything from the downside is now on the up-side. " EEEEEEEE!"
"What's wrong Jesse?" Chyna asks then suddenly realizes she is standing on a cloud in the sky. She looks above and sees what had scared Jesse so much. The trees are above her head. As Jesse and Chyna makes this discovery, it becomes apparent that every other birdie has also realized that they are floating in the air, or is the ground floating?
"Don't panic" Angel says, " trying to reach the rock? Cloud? that Jesse is sitting on. He ducks quickly as a Duck flies by upside down. " Now this is too weird"
" Where are we BB?" Sky asks her, hoping there is a logical answer to why they are now below the ground or above it? Sky shakes his red head, this is getting confusing. " I sure could use a pickle right now?" he says to himself
" It must be " Uppie-Downsie Land" BB answers, not eggactly certain where they were. She looks around at the ground above her. " look, in the distance, I can see the tower of the BC Castle" she points to the very far distance, and the small flag that sits on the top of the main tower. A wave of relief washes through the group of Corn Maze Adventurers. But how to get there from here?
"Look the path is up there" BonBon says to Spot. She tilts her head to see it better.
"How are we going to follow the path, when we are up here, or down here, in the air?" Cappy questions
"If we are upside down then we have to figure out how to get back down? Up, there?" Jenny-Lynn explains, concern in her voice. " I knew I should have brought my cell phone"
Jesse, sighs, scratching his head. If they were now upside down, or down-side up, how could they get there from here? He looked at the blue sky and clouds that carried on as far as the eye could see, then at the ground, the path, the trees above. " I wonder if we can fly down there, or up there? SPOT?" Jesse explains his idea, and Spot agrees to try to fly down or up to the ground to see if he could find a way back to where they belonged. Taking off into the air Spot circles twice then heads for the ground above, but begins to fall towards the sky where the others are watching hopefully from below. Spot hits the sky, ground with a bump, then stands up.
"Where am I?" he asks out loud, brushing the dust off his feathers. HE looks and sees that he is alone, beside a large field of daisies. All the others have disappeared from sight.
"HELPPPPPPPPP!" he calls and his voice echos in the empty field. HE is all alone in some strange place, " JESSE? Poppa SKY?" he calls, but realizes he has disappeared from their sight.

  Hi Popeye
Busy day for Mom and me today, but that is because my lazy mom went back to bed after giving me breakfast and reading with me for an hour. (She has to make sure she sits upright for one hour after eating; apparently forever.) When she got back up we went outside for my sunbath at 10AM because the heat is back! 88 for a high today, and it was already really warm at 10. The nice lady with the polite doggies came by and chatted with my mom, and I didn't even scream at her. But then she did say hello Kiddo, so I had to be polite back, didn't I?

Then Mom went to get her bi-weekly therapeutic massage and take back a library book. Apparently it is national massage week, so she got an extra 15 minutes free. Nice for her, but less mommy time for me.

But she is home now, and I am perched on her knee dictating my blogs. Mom is mine for the rest of the day. She was planning a trip to the post office, but ran out of time. That will have to wait till tomorrow. Oh no, more time away from me! The humanity!!

Oops! Mom forgot to eat lunch again. Oh well, she will make sure she gets dinner a little early.

  Hi Popeye
Yesterday after mom did some of that yard cleanup, she played with us and did a light cleaning of the cages. Today is a major scrub down, though, so we will all have to rearrange our stuff after she's done. I didn't stay with mom for long yesterday, I was more interested in cuddling with the rope wreath on top of my cage. Willie won the prize for being the most clingy yesterday. He stayed with mom a long time, trying to decorate her tee by making it lacy, then trying out her shirt buttons, too. He preened her hair for awhile then he got bored and went back to his pinata. Peppino is being shy again, so mom isn't forcing him to come with her, but because of past experience, she knows he'll be with her before long. We are all thinking that Bree will be by to trim our nails before long, at least that's what mom is saying.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of scritchies and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  October BOTM POST number sixteen
Hello. Hello. Quit that. Quit that. Geesh. Geesh. It's me Jesse, the real Jesse with today's BOTM Adventure Post.
Snowflake looks at her double, " Two Snowflakes are better than one heehee" Her double laughs too.
"You know this could be fun, especially when time for grooming." Cookie says, " then again how can I tell which me, is me?" he frowns and his double copies his every move.
Jesse stands tall, trying to see if he can find a logical answer to this double-trouble. He finds BonBon sitting on the path in front of her double. She is carefully grooming out the spider webs from her feathers.
"What are you doing?" says Jesse.
"Preening! After all, I am a pretty bird! I can't be seen with this junk on my feathers. So when I found this mirror, I decided it was a good idea to clean up some!"
"MIRROR!" shouts Jesse. "Hey Spot, these are mirrors!" Jesse yells eggcitedly.
Spot looks critically at his double and says," I hope I don't really look this bad! He starts to preen as well."
"Aaaaaagh" says Jesse. "We are still missing birds! Clean up later!" Jesse is thrilled to learn that the doubles are in fact mirror-images. " we can keep going. Our doubles are just reflections in mirrors. That's why they do everything we do exactly, they are us, only doubles." Jesse scratches his head,, "Ok, that was even confusing to me, but the point is, we can leave the doubles behind."
Snowflake frowns, "I kinda like my double. She's beautiful, and loves to giggle just like me."
Kiddo comes to where Jesse is standing, a sad, worried look on his face. "OH NO! Where is my SweetPepper??!! I have no idea, and it is really scaring me that my wifebird in now one of the missing. We need to find the Macaw Guard right away for some help. Maybe George the Tiger could help with his superior smelling abilities."
Jesse agrees, and helping Kiddo up onto a large boulder, he waits as Kiddo calls "GEORGE! GEORGE! We need your help!"
"I sure hope he hear me." Kiddo says climbing back down. " we have to locate the missing birds."
"We will, don't worry. We can't be too far from the Castle now." Jesse replies encouragingly. " let's get everybirdie ready and keep going. We'll be safe at the castle soon."
Kiddo and Jesse wander around the group of double-birdies, telling everyone the news that they will soon be at the Castle. Bidding farewell to themselves they leave their double behind, as they start off once more along the worn path. The ground slants upwards as they continue to walk quickly along. The late day sun feels warm on their backs. After a while Jesse stops for a break and sits down on a large rock,looks up, and seeeeeeeeeeeeeees

  Hi Popeye
84 here today too.

Mom and I shared a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch. I do like cheese, so it was enjoyed by both of us. Now Mom had not eaten a GC sand in years, but Dad eats them all the time. The smell of them when she wasn't allowed to eat bread was driving her crazy, so she had to satisfy that craving. Now it will probably be years before she has another, because they really are fattening and high in cholesterol.

Today is the first day of voting in the Milonga Halloween Costume contest. There has been a slight change in the rules, since there is only three days to vote each bird can vote in each category once every day. Voting ends on the 24th at midnight EDT, so get on over to the milonga page #165848 and cast your votes. I apologize for not having pics in the gallery for you, but there just wasn't time to have the names and or numbers added (and besides Mom doesn't know how to do that) and Queen Angel is busy setting up our haunted castle tour and Taz is doing pics for the tour. Blame it on BC being down for 6 days, but I hope everybirdy will take the time to check out the entries. Page numbers are included to help.

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!

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

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

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

  Hi Popeye
Do I detect a bit of sarcasm there? We've never smelled a donut shop, eh? You are one funny birdie! It sounds like both parronts enjoy their volunteer work with the police department, that's good.
Yesterday Willie's lamp went out in the middle of the day. Mom looked at it, changed the bulb, which didn't fix the problem, then unplugged it. She looked more carefully and it looked like Mr. Willie chewed a piece of the cord, so she took it to be repaired today. The guy at the store thinks the tiny hole in the cord wouldn't have caused a problem so they will keep it and see what's wrong. While she was out, mom got new branch loppers today, because she can't find the ones she thought were here. Of course, we all know what will happen, right? As soon as she starts using the new ones, the old ones will show up. Well, so far, that hasn't happened. She used the new ones to chop down some rose branches that were too close to the mailbox, as well as a weed bush growing on the end of the yard. Then she got the hedge choppers and cut down some of the peony bushes. She took down the fountain, cleaned it and put it away for the winter. Then she put out the scarecrows and pumpkins. So far, no old branch loppers have made an appearance. She came inside because it got too damp and chilly to keep working out there. Now mom is ours for the rest of the day.
I hope you are having a good day today, getting lots of love and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

Hi everybird, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. It is such a relief to be free from those creepy, crawly, ucky black Monster sized Spiders. I didn't wanta say anything but I think that some of them are the Giant Birdeater Spiders. "YUCK, is all I can say."
"Where are Sweetpepper, Apache and Pearl gone?" Kiddo asks in fear for his wife-bird and friends.
"Not again" Jesse says his yellow face turning a ghostly white. "they have to be here, I just saw them a moment ago!" Jesse brings to run back and forth searching under every bush, behind every tree and asks everybirdie, but he is unable to find his missing friends. Sadly he returns to where Sky is in deep conversation with Jake and Spot.
" We have to get to the Castle. We can't delay. Our friends are gone, and we have to save them." Sky's voice hesitates for a moment, before finishing his sentence, " before it's too late"
"Everybirdie" Jesse calls out loudly, " we are going to follow a path I found searching for Sweetpepper and the others. It looks well traveled, it must lead to the Castle. We have to hurry, it's getting late, the sun will be setting soon."
Jesse leads out, following the path, watching carefully for anything "odd" he might find along it. Everything is fine, and he begins to relax, the birdies are making greyt time, they will be safely at the Castle soon. Then he can return with help to find their missing friends.
"JESSE?" Spot flies up to walk with him, have you noticed anything weird?
"Nope, everything looks fine. WHY?" Jesse asks an edge of concern to his voice.
"No reason, well, maybe it might be odd, maybe not but have you noticed that every tree is planted beside another one that is the same?"
Jesse looks at the trees beside the path, and certainly it is true, every tree has a perfect match to it. He continues to watch as he walks quickly along. Every rock and every bush also has a double.
"Yeah, it sure is odd Spot." Jesse turns his head to speak to Spot and let's out a terrified scream, " SPOT? SPOT?" he yells in terror, as his eyes fall upon not one but two Spots. Jesse screams again, and a perfect echo follows, causing him to snap his head to the right to come beak to beak with "HIMSELF! AHHHHHHHHHHH!"
"SKY, JAKE, come quickly!" the two Jesse's scream in echo of one another. Jesse tries to get away from himself, but his double follows every move he makes. he sees Sky and Jake coming his direction, and stops. There are two of each of them, in fact everywhere Jesse looks there are two of everybirdie. The others realize that they too have a perfect double and fear spreads like fire among the group.
"Falco? BooBoo?" Hulk asks then backs away unsure of which one is the real Falco and the real BooBoo.

Ha! Your dad smells like a donut shoppe? Good one!

Well, Mom got a call from her friend who is in the Master's program at CSUN about editing her paper that is due soon. Mom being the grammar queen, she loves helping out. And I love it, because it means she stayed home from zumba. As soon as they are done, Mom and I will share lunch and then go out for my sunbath. Then the rest of the day is mine!!

I wonder what is for dinner tonight? I sure did enjoy the thigh bone I got from last night's feast. Mom loved it, but I think she enjoyed the Hawaiian Sweet roll the most. 8 weeks without bread is a longggg time!

Don't forget that today is the last day to enter the costume contest for the Halloween milonga. And for those who have already entered your awesome costumes? Thanks!!

Today is happy ToosDay, but every day of the week should be named for a different parrot species, and Sunday should be Citron Cockatoo day, because of their Angelic appearance and sweet quiet nature! Our weather is less than good, it is 37 degrees, and will warm to the low 60's, but why does it have to be so overcast all the time, it makes Jen feel like robbing a bank and biting the bank managers, LOL, she always donates the cash to parrot rescues and no-kill shelters, it is one of our passions! Have a great day dearest friends, and give my best love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

Bills? Yuck! Did the whole flock suffer????
Mom is not looking forward to dad's retirement from that standpoint.
Mom lucked out this morning. She leaves at 4 am for the chapel for her hour of prayer--it was 54 and dry. When she got out it was just starting to drizzle but had dropped almost 10 degrees. 2 hours later and it is still holding steady at 45, but it is quite wet now. Guess she won't rake leaves again today, hehehe.
Dad must have done a greyt job on the shelf that is blended so well it took a while for mom to notice!
Volunteering is good--do the parronts get to help set their hours???? (Getting to have time with YOU of course)

  October BOTM POST number fourteen
Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. What a sticky, icky mess we have found ourselves in. Giant Spiders everywhere, and no where to run. Then all of a sudden I found a clearing. I was eggcited to see our way of escape, that is until the air is shattered by the terrified scream of Dixie.
Dixie is very upset and frightened about what the spiders would do to Little Ange. He runs in circles around the tree where she is hanging from their thick webs! Dixie screams for someone to come to his aid," Please help me reach my wife bird and cut her loose" He tries but is too small to reach her at this point! He asks permission to get on top of Poppa Sky's head so he can have a better reach of her and then pulling off a thick branch from the Mulberry tree to reach LA with, he stands carefully on Poppa Sky's head trying to balance with his twisted toes,all the while reaching up with the long branch to his Little Angel! Little Angel reaches down breaking through the webbing she is caught in and grabs the branch that Dixie is holding out to her, suddenly losing her balance she falls from the webbing and tumbles down onto Dixie, as both birds fall sliding down Poppa Sky's red feathered back!
Dixie kisses his Little Angel. "Oh Dixie you saved my life. I'm sure those black Monster Spiders were going to eat me for dinner." Little Angel sniffs, wiping a tear from her eye. Sky checks his little fister over and seeing she and Dixie are ok, he stands tall as he can, and looks intently around to find a way to escape from this mess. It is while he is busy searching that Jenny-Lynn arrives ta his side. "SKY, I have a plan." she whispers into Sky's ear. HE nods his red head several times as he listens to her plan. After she finishes he clears his voice to get everybirds attention.
"Jenny-Lynn has a plan. She thinks if we were to form a long line and use sticks to break the webs, we can easily bust free of the spider's trap and get away from here. BonBon has a lighter." He frowns, thinking to himself, she ought not to have it in the first place, taking note to lecture his daughter later. " We can use it to burn the webs off the trees and bushes, our sticks can tear them down from the path ahead of us." Seeing no other plan, everybirdie lines up, wing to wing forming a greyt line of feathers, and slowly they work their way forward, removing webs as they go. It seems a very long time before they reach the end of the spiders home, and bid them a quick good-bye. The Spiders glare angry eyes at the retreating birds. "Just wait, they think they are free from troubles...." The Spiders hiss and laugh as they return to their damaged webs. " they'll wish they were here again!"
Jesse stops for a moment to get his bearings. He sits on a tree that had fallen to the ground. HE asks SKY to find Apache so he can use the binoculars. Sky searches but returns with Kiddo in a panic, " Apache, Sweetpepper and Pearl are gone!"

  Hi Popeye
When is your mom ever gonna have time to watch 60 TV shows? Mom does her best to clear out whatever she has recorded each week, but then she is just that way.

Hey how come you are so much warmer than we are?

Well, today's the big day! Mom gets to eat real food, and she started our day out with a bowl (very small bowl) of cereal with banana (a very small banana) which I of course shared with her. As usual I preferred the cereal she had in her mouth to what was in the bowl, but that's par for the course.

Then she left about 9:30 for the gym, and her trainer did abs and core work for the first time in 8 weeks. Unfortunately for Mom the entire 50 minutes was abs and core. Think she'll be sore? Then she ate half a protein bar (trainer said to take it slow on solids this first day) before zumba, which she managed 50 minutes of. She was going to try for the entire class, but that last song was a super fast one and she caved.

Then she came home and instead of coming in to be with me, she took a shower and then took a phone call from her friend who has a court date coming (she's up for disability) and they talked for over half an hour. So by the time my mom came in to see me I was in a rage and bit her hand and her ear, so I got a time out. She did an Ensure for her lunch (big dinner coming home with Dad after all) and after a bit she came back in and I was very sorry, so we went out for a sunbath. It's a pleasant low 70s today.

Now I am back in my room, because when she tried the knee sitting blog routine, I went for the antique dresser instead. I swear the hormones made me do it! Not my fault!

  Hi Popeye
We are glad to hear that dad is done with that stand, now the thing is to bring it inside and make use of it.
Mom just noticed a piece of our porch roof is sagging underneath. The top looks fine, but it seems moisture got into there, so she's having some guys come take a look at it this week.
Yesterday, mom led 2 anthropology tours at the museum. Both were with college students from West Virginia University. Mom's first question to both groups was how many were hung over? WVU won their football game on Saturday, so there was some celebrating going on. She had fun with the college students, and both groups covered 3 desert cultures, Ancient Egypt, Inuits in Northern Canada from about 100 years ago, and modern Hopi Native Americans. The second group was more engaged, and seemed to have a better time with it. At the end of the second tour, they asked if mom had been a teacher, so she said yes. They hoped it wasn't at Pitt, to which mom replied that's where she got her Masters. One of the girls said she'd forgive mom for that, because everyone is entitled to a mistake now and again. Mom just laughed and laughed over that.
Today at the center, mom cleaned the RVS room and the squirrel porch. It was funny on the squirrel porch, there were 3 fox squirrels, including the one she fostered, 6 red squirrels, and about a dozen gray ones. The gray ones were in and out of each other's cages, having a ball. Mom couldn't get an accurate count! Hopefully they were all there.
I hope you are having a wonderful day, full of sunshine, love, and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Congrats to Kaji!, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  October BOTM POST number thirteen
Hi everybirdie Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. I want to take a moment to thank you all for your continuous daily votes, and awesome blogs. I am trying to use them in my story line so keep them comin.' IF anybirdie still needs a Halloween picture please let me know your choice of costume and I will see what I can do to help you out.
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" Sky screams shrilly and he a Jake back up quickly from the mound of parted grass. "What was that thing???"
"I have no idea but I'm outta here" Jake heads back to rejoin BB and the others, with Sky following on his heels.
Sky shivers, and ducks behind BB. Peaking out to stare towards the grass with dilated eyes. "EEEEEKuck." Sky did not get the words out before birdies began to scream and jump as fast as they could to join Jake and Sky behind BB and BonBon who had come to see what was wrong with her Poppa Sky.
"S-P-I-D-E-R-S!" from every direction big, ucky, black, beady eyed spiders crawl, hang and appear out of every tree, bush and from behind every blade of grass. The girl birds huddle close together as the spiders spin their webs angrily from every solid object. Sky nervously sneaks a peak again from behind BB, closing his eyes. He hates spiders, well no, Sky is afraid of them, and these are BIG, black ucky ones with a quadrillion legs. He shutters, then takes a brave breath of air.
"BOYS, we must protect the ladies" Sky announces not too confidently.
"Yeah, that's right" Cookie says, hanging tightly onto BB's leg once more. " we'll protect you girls"
"Oh really, they're just Spiders" BooBoo says snatching one in her beak and swallowing it whole, "YUMMMMMIE"
The others look at BooBoo and make faces, "how disgusting BooBoo, eating it without BBQing it first" BonBon chirps up. " AHHHHHHH, ones chasing me" she says taking flight. She lands on her Poppa Sky's head. "I'll sit up here and keep watch on them for you" she grins down at her red feathered Poppa.
The spiders continue to emerge, spinning thick webs everywhere. Their black eyes glaring like fiery flames of anger. The birds huddle closely as the Spiders move closer and closer. Suddenly Jesse sees what looks like an opening, and yells, " Follow me" he runs as fast as his talons will carry him between two Mulberry bushes with the others closely upon his heels. The duck low to avoid the heavy webs hanging from the old dark trees, and weave to the left and right around the huge black spiders who appear to block their path of escape. Jesse rushes forward, jumping over an old fallen log, and lands inches from a monstrous Spider, who growls and snaps his feet at the pasting birdies.
"EEEEEEEEEEEE" the scream brings the fleeing birds to a halt, "LITTLE ANGEL, the Spiders grabbed her into their web, HELP HER!!!!!

  Hi Popeye
Your mom filled two DVRs? Our cable DVR has never been over 15% full, but maybe directTV doesn't hold as much? Can't imagine.

It is very nice here today. They were calling for 77, but I don't think it got quite that warm. Our thermometer says 72, and it's 1PM now. I did get out for my sunbath though, and it was very nice in the sunshine. Got two nutriberries as well, which is always good.

And so now I sit on Mom's knee dictating my blogs. She has the door shut, since Dad is home. And besides I have a made a break from my room twice today for the bathroom. I love hanging out on top of the medicine cabinets in there. And besides it annoys Mom, which is always fun.

We had mac and cheese for lunch today. Mom added some Cajun spice, cottage cheese (for protein) and a bit of Romano cheese to kick it up a notch. It must have worked, because she really liked it and I ate like a little pig. Good thing she gets to eat meat starting tomorrow, because this morning when she woke me up and I was doing my morning stretch, she referred to my legs as drumsticks! Yikes!

  Hi Popeye
Is that your dad in the gallery with the police car???
Mom says she gets your mom wanting the DVR shows. We have not had much TV since the beginning of August, so My mom is missing a few of her favorites. Sometimes dad will go outside so she can watch, but it is now getting much too cold for that. She had to scrape the car to go to church this morning.
Lots of the pretty leaves are on the ground. I guess its the 'almost winter' season: we have almost winter, winter, still winter and construction.
