  Hi Popeye
How is the leg doing? Good that dad insist on getting more antibiotics. our dad has had to have 2 rounds of antibiotics for sinus infections lately. That has happened a few times. (Months apart)
Has any doc 'splained WHY it is taking so long?
Mom mowed on Monday, so for the rest of the week her knee has complained. That does mean she is sitting in OUR chair more often, hehehe.

  Hi Popeye
My mom thinks that soup sounds wonderful! Me? Not so much a fan of soup.

Mom took another shot at the gym this morning, but Becky met her at the door and said she wanted her to do 5 minutes on the tread mill at walking pace and no incline. If she could manage that, then they would work out. Well, Mom had to sit down at the end of the 5 minutes, so Becky said no way! She also suggested Mom stop at Starbuck's on the way home and get what she called "Sick Tea". It is supposed to help with the kind of thing that is kicking Mom's tail feathers: green tea, mint, steamed lemonade and honey. Mom drank it all, but then she felt kind of queasy and laid down for an hour. Guess it is not for her.

Then we shared half a roast beef and provolone sandwich for lunch. I must admit I prefer the sandwich to the wrap, because Mom doesn't put that nasty spinach on there. I do like me some RB!

Then Mom went to the library to get the books she had reserved. She stopped at Trader Joe's on the way home to stock up on my raw almonds and cashews. Plus she got pecan pieces so that means cookies are in our future! Yay!

Don't forget to vote in the Derby Hat Contest on milonga page #165848. Both ladies and gents are too close to call right now!

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's a boring day around here and after yesterday that is just fine by me!
Mom made a big pot of pinto beans and is going to use part of them for chili and try making refried beans out of the rest.
The overnight construction continues! They managed to get part of the left lane across the street paved last night. That means they will start working on our side tonight. They don't work Saturday or Sunday so I only have to put up with the beeping for one more night. Mom is leaving the radio turned up to help drown out the noise.
They did the cross street in 4 nights but I don't think they can shut down many lanes out here because it's a truck route. We are only a mile from the freeway on ramp so there are lots of trucks heading towards the freeway including the huge trucks from Boeing. They make the wings down here and ship them up to Everett to put on the planes.
McKenzie saw her first baby this morning and she did not know what to make of it! The lady who lives across from us has a 3 month old daughter and she was out in her car seat when McKenzie was going out to the dog park! McKenzie sat down and started wagging her tail! Then the baby started fussing so McKenzie got behind mom!hahahahahaha I suppose I should laugh at her since those little humans make me nervous too!
Gardeners are here and they planted tons of yellow mums out front. It looks so pretty! They just started to do the lawns since it was raining this morning.
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just spectacular!

  Hi Popeye
Sounds like dad didn't enjoy those plays, then. Mom wants to see The Huntsman.
Mom's sister drove her to the eye surgeon yesterday, and in spite of messed up directions from MapQuest, they managed to find the place. The directions told them to do a U turn and go back up the same road, but the place was to their right where the U turn was indicated! Anyway, the doctor did the laser procedure in her right eye, and said he didn't think the left one needed it at all, and maybe never would. Wouldn't that be great? So she has to put in prednisone drops for 5 days, and see her regular eye doc next week for a follow up. She's already seeing better, though. Mom went to dinner with her sister while they waited for the prescription drops to be ready.
This morning mom had the bunny room to clean. She cleaned about 22 cages, with about 40 or so bunnies. There was another person in there weighing them, so that was a huge help. In the middle of cleaning the bunnies, the director came in and asked mom to tube feed 6 possum babies, so she left to do that, too. The babies were in an incubator in the mammal nursery, in a Christmas stocking. Cute, right? They didn't want to go back in there after they were fed, so mom just covered them with a soft blanket and left the stocking in with them. Possums are so cute when they are that little, and they are pretty easy to intubate. Of course, mom clogged one of the feeding tubes, and squirted possum milk all over the place, including her glasses and face. It all worked out though. She managed to get them all done. The staff was complaining about tubes clogging when she went back to the bunny room, so she was glad it wasn't just her.
Now mom is ours for the rest of the day. She needs to do some laundry, but other than that, she's ours, all ours.
It's still pretty cool here, in the low 50s with cloud cover, so it doesn't look too good outside. I hope you are getting better weather, and lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Popeye
Well, Mom's trip to the gym yesterday was a total bust! She went in, said hi to Becky, and went over to the arm bike to warm up her shoulders. She usually does 6-10 minutes on there, but after 3 minutes she was dizzy. She went back up to the front desk, and Becky and Lindsey (the gym ops mgr) took one look at her and said "go home you look way too pale and weak". So maybe tomorrow, but if she does there still won't be any zumba for a while.

Meanwhile today Mom did go and get her arthritis massage. Mattea concentrated on Mom's back over her lungs to help break up the congestion. And Mom's shoulders were really tight, so she worked on that and the sinuses. Mom felt lots better by the time she left.

When she got home she fixed a roast beef and provolone wrap for our lunch. It would have been perfect if she had just left off that nasty spinach! Needless to say I ate RB and spit the spinach on Mom's shoulder. Hey! Maybe it will help with those tight muscles!

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

  Hi Popeye
It's always worth shopping to get some great deals.
I had another visit with Dr. Pleban yesterday afternoon, and she says I'm healing quite nicely. All my meds are done, and she said I don't need any more. I have several feathers growing in, the scab on the inside of my leg is gone, and the big one on the outside is looking good. She says everything is moving right along. She left my little turtleneck collar on, and wants to see me next week. She made the appointment, to make sure her staff knows that when she says one week, that's what she means.
My appointment yesterday was at 3:30, which put us in the middle of rush hour traffic again, but mom chose a different route home, so the trip home only took 40 minutes, not 80 like last week. Next week my appointment is 2:40, so we shouldn't hit any traffic there or back except for school buses.
Today it's raining hard out there, but of course the dogs still wanted a walk. It's funny, because they hide under the overhang on the deck when mom puts them out in the rain, but they'll walk on leads right out in the rain! Mom got wet, too, even though she was carrying an umbrella. It's a spring rain, though, so it will be good for the flowers. Temps are mid 50s, it feels like.
Mom is getting that laser treatment on her eyes today, we think. She doesn't know if he'll do both eyes today or not, but we're kind of hoping he does, just to get it over with.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

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

  Hi Popeye
Well, Mom continues to improve, although she is still coughing some....not like before though. She is going to the gym to work out with Becky this afternoon, but they will just do balance work so as not to overdo it. And Mom is not going to stay for zumba. She knows that would be a BIG mistake. Works for me, since that means she will be back home earlier.

We shared cheese cannelloni for lunch, and since I adore anything with pasta it sure worked for me. Mom has to time anything with dairy for 2 hours before and after her antibiotics, so meals become very much scheduled. However that mid morning snack of chicken broth was sooooo unnecessary!

I hope you had a wonderful day! We had lots of plans for today but nothing got done. Mom was on the phone with various family members until 3 pm. Then she had to go pick Ian up, then Jennifer up, get dinner and clean up the kitchen! Not a very exciting day but I did get to yell hello to the family!
Mom has 2 younger brothers. One lives in Arizona and the other lives in California. They and their families are going to drive up to Portland Oregon this summer and want mom and her sister to meet them there. Portland is only 2 hours south of us. As usual with families, no one can decide on a date. The boys want to stay down there for a few days but mom and her sister have us pets to take care of so they only want to go for the day. Moms sister and her youngest brothers wife can only be together for a few hours before they are at each others throats!hahahahahaha Gotta love family!
I hope you enjoy your evening!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Well, Mom is still not 100%, but the improvement is steady. She even got out of bed at 9:30 this morning, and she hasn't gone back yet! Yesterday it was 11, and the days before that? In and out of bed all day long with never more than 20-30 minutes up. The cough from the bronchitis is much better, and the sinus infection has really improved. Needless to say I am very pleased to be getting more Mommy time, but that chicken broth she had for lunch was of no interest to me! Hopefully there will be snacks later....

I am very pleased to announce that every single pic in the Derby Hat Contest has at least one vote. That shows that the turn out for voting is almost as good as the voting in our primaries across the country. By the time CA has theirs, it will all be over but the shouting but Mom and Dad will vote anyway. Dad keeps threatening to vote for Trump, but he is just kidding...isn't he?

  Hi Popeye
I don't think we got any emails from your dad. Hope his leg gets better, this has gone on for way too long.
Today mom did the presentation of Hopi and ancient Egyptian animals for the new docent class. It was a little scary, because mom didn't find a lot of information on the Hopi animals, but she managed. She showed the class some of the things that lived or live today in the southwest, like jaguars, pronghorns, etc. She also stopped at the deer and elk cases, even though those particular deer and elk aren't from the southwest. They also stopped at the coyote.
Egypt was a lot easier to research and present. Mom presented the animals and the gods with whom they were associated. It was fun, because not only did they wander all over the second floor, looking at the African dioramas, they also got to see the dung beetles from the resource room.
On the third floor, mom did Bird Hall, but told them they were doing both Egyptian and Hopi, so they had to keep separate notes for them. They paid particular attention to vultures and falcons for Egypt, golden eagles for Hopi, then further down the hall, they stopped at the turkey (Hopi raise wild ones for food), quail, ibis, and a few others. The last 2 stops were in the cultural halls. Mom showed them the mummified animals in Egypt, and where to see the golden eagle in the Hopi area. All in all, it took the full 2 hours which mom didn't expect, but they seemed to get a lot out of it.
On the way home, mom stopped at Trader Joe's (always a mistake when you are hungry), and picked up some beet hummus, Mediterranean hummus, curried chicken salad, sushi, well, you get the picture. She went in there for broccoli and blueberries for us. Oh yes, she got them, too.
That meant coming straight home, though, because it's warm out and some of the things she bought had to be frozen or refrigerated. So she didn't stop to vote, but will go later, as she's not going to miss today's primary.
It rained here this morning, and apparently while mom was lecturing at the museum. It looks like it might rain again, but in between, the sun is really hot. It's in the mid 70s here. I hope you are having a great spring day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches, too. Hugs, Falco

Well, Mom is feeling a bit better today. At least I got some more mom time, and we shared lunch: mushroom ravioli. Now that is one of my mom's favorites, but it tasted funny to her....everything does right now. I, however, totally enjoyed my pasta share of the lunch.

And as Dad pointed out last night, Mom was exactly half way thru the antibiotics, so she should just now be seeing some results. She is still hacking up coughs, and that's annoying but she is not all weak and wobbly today like yesterday. And she and Dad are going grocery shopping as soon as he gets home from work. Thank goodness!! I had to suffer thru pellets and a nutriberry for breakfast instead of my usual fruit and veggies! Horrors!

Don't forget to vote in the Derby Hat Contest on the milonga page. And be sure to scoot by Panther's page and give his mom love and prayers for a successful treatment from the doctors. She is getting state of the art care, and that is a very good thing.

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Any progress with the in-laws and the phones! I really do think there are Youtube videos to explain it. They might try the AARP website too. They might have some information too! Mom would have trouble with it also but she would read the manual. When dad and Jennifer got their I Phones there was no manual. I guess you read it online or on the phone. Suppose you would have to know how to do that first now wouldn't you?

  Hi Popeye
When all else fails, read the manual, hahaha!
It's a bit warmer today than it was yesterday. It's around 70 and sunny right now. Mom went to the bird show this morning, and it was pretty good. She bought some new sea grass mats with toys on them, some poop off, many other toys (of course), and a huge bag of fresh chop. The chop was being sold fresh to benefit a parrot rescue group, so mom was happy to contribute. The lady making it made an immense plastic bin full! She put in more things than mom cuts up every day, so we're going to try it with Maxine and the boys. Mom might give me some too, to see if I'll eat it.
She got to see 2 presentations at the bird show, one on how to make chop, and one about the new rescue in our area. They had lots of birds with them, including 2 adorable nandays and a galah that mom was really admiring. I have to say that she came home with lots of stuff, but no new birds. This place offers foster opportunities though, so she's thinking about that. There were the usual raffles going on, as well as a huge raffle for an outdoor aviary. Mom did not buy tickets for that one, though! She'd never get it put up outside.
When she left the show, she stopped at Moio's, a local Italian bakery, to take some goodies to Aunt Ginny who is recovering from pneumonia. Mom was her first company, although her adult kids have been with her every day and evening for the past 2 weeks. They had a nice visit, then mom came back here and divided the chop into some smaller containers for the freezer. It's supposed to be good frozen for 3 months. She is really hoping we'll eat it.
My vet called yesterday and changed my appointment to this week. She had wanted to see me in a week, but the front desk made the appointment for 2 weeks instead, due to availability (mom's and the vet's). So, I'm going in this Wednesday at 3:30, which means another trip in rush hour traffic to return home, but it's all good. Mom says as long as I'm getting better, that's what counts. We can sing in the car on the way home.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Quick blog today. Mom seems to have taken a turn for the worse, or at least she is sleeping most of the day. Less time for yours truly, and I guess you can imagine I am not pleased about that.

Dad went and picked up fried chicken for lunch, and I did get a thigh bone from Mom out of that. I do love me a bone with some meat on it, and Mom knows just the way I like it. Guess life is not all bad!

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

  Hi Popeye
Mom wanted to see that second one, that's the one with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, right?
It got a lot cooler overnight, it's around 53 right now. We were getting spoiled with those really warm sunny days. The rain was needed, even though we didn't get much, and the cooler temps are more normal for this time of year.
I only have until Tuesday with my antibiotic, and the pain med was done yesterday. Mom can see some new feathers!
Mom is off today! What a treat that is for all of us. She will be able to spend a lot of time with us, and she'll get some yard work done, too. Our neighbor Jeff gave mom 2 dahlias and an amaryllis. Mom found space for the amaryllis on the windowsill, but the dahlias are outside the front door right now. It's way too soon to plant them, even though they are growing. Mom is leaving them outside to harden off, but if it gets too cold, she'll bring them into the kitchen. I guess it's time to look at all the geraniums, dahlias, and tuberous begonias she put in the garage last fall, to see if any survived the winter. We'll let you know.
Tomorrow is a bird show, new to our area! It's being run by a different sponsor, and looks interesting, with presentations and even a movie or 2. Someone will be there talking about chop, there looks to be a lot going on. I'll tell you what mom brings home tomorrow, since we'll be blogging later in the day.
I hope you are having a great day today, enjoying a good Saturday with family, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Don't forget to vote in the ladies' and gents' hat contests on the milonga page. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Popeye
Have you heard anything further from Panther's mom?
Last Saturday we found some opening week deals at whole food. The parront's will probably visit there for a few things (gluten free).
Mom has had a crazy schedule despite having some eggstra time this week.

  Hi Popeye
I am in time out right now in my room. Mom and I were sharing a bowl of soup for lunch, and for some reason I felt compelled to bite her cheek...hard! She did not appreciate it, but at least she didn't drop the soup. Not that I got any more after that; in fact, she didn't want any more either!

Mom is still coughing like a fool, and she is starting to wonder when the antibiotics will kick in. She sleeps almost all day long, but guess she must need it or she would not fall asleep. However then she has trouble getting to sleep at night. Just can't win.

The Derby Hat Contest voting is off and running, but strangely enough the milonga page won BOTD. Now if every bird that came by to congratulate the page would also vote in the contest that would be greyt, but not all of you did. Get with it!! Everybirdy come vote for your favorite lady and gent's hats on page #165848!!

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you are having a great day! We finished up laundry and cleaned out the turtle tank today. I took a shower while mom cleaned. Then mom had to stop cleaning and get McKenzie because she thought I wanted to play! I did not! Like you said, a bird needs some privacy for a shower!
It's all done now and McKenzie is ready for a nap! Good thing since mom has to go back to work tonight!!
Enjoy your evening sweetie!

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you are having a fun day! How is your dad feeling today? I hope it's better. It took dad a few weeks to get use to the new med but if it keeps happening to your dad he should get the doctor to give him something else.
I got a new toy yesterday and managed to destroy all the wood pieces on it. I am now working on the foam pieces. Mom cleaned my cage out before I got up this morning because she has to worry about the puppy trying to eat the wood! Now my cage is being cleaned way too often and I am having to spend my day redecorating it!
McKenzie had an upset tummy this morning. Ian bought her some rawhide bones from Petco and I guess it did not agree with her. So far the only one that we know won't give her an upset tummy is the Dingo bones. Mom gets them at her work so she will have to pick up a few and stash them. Mom always reads the labels on everything to make sure they are made in the USA and that there is nothing weird in them. The Petco bone looked fine.
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect!

  Hi Popeye
Well, I am getting emails saying I have received a blog again, but if you go to the new birdie's pages who won BOTD lately they are all inactive for a long time. At least it is a step in the right direction. I must admit I was getting sick of looking at Julio's pic.

Speaking of pics, today is the last day to enter the Derby hat contest although I suspect we have all of our entries now. There sure are some special pics entered! Voting starts tomorrow. Your Derby team is working now to get the pics numbered and posted on the milonga page tonight to be ready for tomorrow.

And finally! Mom went to the doc today, and it isn't just a cold. She has a sinus infection and severe bronchitis. He wrote a script for antibiotics, and she is to take it easy and avoid going outside (high pollen count here) through the weekend at least. Hopefully the pills will take effect quickly and Mom will start feeling better soon....Now if that headache would just go away!

  Hi Popeye
Very pretty hat! Hope you are in the contest. Voting starts today. Mom had that reaction to lipitor, aches and pains.
I went back to the vet yesterday. The appointment was for 3:30, so mom left super early, thinking she'd run into a lot of school buses. She ran into 2, so we got there before 3 o'clock. Mom had something to read, though, so we were fine. The vet looked at my booboo, and said the inside of my leg had a beautiful scab on it, so it's healing nicely. The outside, after she cleaned it off a little, looked much better too. It got hard, which means it's on a healing path. The edges are curling in, which is a good sign, according to the doctor. And there are some new feathers coming in. I have to stay on my meds: pain relief through Friday, and antibiotic for the full 14 days. She wanted to see me next week, but there are no times when she and mom are both available. Mom made an appointment for May 4, and called off from the museum that day. She also told them at the vet's office that if they have a cancellation next week, to call her and get her in sooner. They said they would. When we left the doctor's office, we ran into rush hour traffic, as mom thought. We were fine until we crossed the Allegheny River. There was traffic on that road until we turned off for home. We were about 20 minutes getting to the vet, and about an hour and 20 minutes getting home.
Today mom had 2 tours at the museum with second grade children. It was an animal tour, so she started both of the groups in bird hall. They all had questions about the birds! The funny thing was that the first group was all boys, and the second was all girls. They were okay for second grade, not quite as bad as mom thought they'd be.
Did you notice on the parrot newsletter that it's not i5publishing any more? It said Lumina, formerly i5 in the credits. Maybe that's why BC is doing better for the past 2 days.
I hope you are having another beautiful day. We sure are! It's cooler than it was yesterday, only in the 70s today, but it's sunny and pretty out. I hope also that you are getting lots of attention, cuddles, and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

  Hello Popeye~~
I hope you had a fun day! Your hat is just beautiful! I love the picture! Red is your color!!!
You know anytime anything new comes into our cages, we must be very careful and observe it for a while!! Sometimes I jump right on a new toy if it is similar to one I've had before but if it is very new looking, I will watch it for a few days before I touch it! Mom put a wicker thingy in last month it took 2 weeks before I would go to that side of the cage!! A bird can never be too careful!!
Enjoy the evening sweetie!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Popeye
My mom is still coughing, and she has no energy. I am really getting deprived, because she comes in to sit with me and after about 20 minutes has to go back to bed. And for the first time today she has stomach issues. She shared a Healthy Choice chicken and veggies with me, and she did let me have all the peas. She could only choke down half of it and then had to lie down again. And then took one of the nausea pills from the Bravo procedure last month which did help.

Well, Mom may be stubborn, but she isn't stupid...or not very. She finally broke down and called her doc to make an appointment. He is all booked up today, but she is going in tomorrow morning. Hopefully he can figure out what is wrong.

Meanwhile other than being mommy deprived I am doing well.
