I love Corn.

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..

  Hi Popeye
It has been brought to my attention that there may have been a miscount on one of the categories in the Irish Picture contest, so I would like to declare at this time that Cookie and Chipper tied for first in the Most Irish category.

I must admit I do like Mondays. Not only is it not a gym day for Mom, but Dad is off to work and not competing with my mom time. The only down side is that it is trash day. However Mom got me out for my sunbath at 10:30, and we timed it just right. Not a single truck came by while we were out there, although one did rumble past the house right after we came inside.

Then Mom helped her friend, Judy, edit another paper. Now Judy is getting her Masters in Poli Sci so she can teach at the Community College level. This paper was on the erosion of voter turn out over the past 20 years. Mom and Dad vote in every single election, whether it is a major one or just a local. She asked me to take this moment to remind everybirdy's parronts that voting is not just a right, but also a privilege that should not be shirked. If you don't like the way an election turned out, but you didn't vote...shame on you!

That said, I would like to comment on the lovely lunch Mom and I just shared. (Yes! She remembered to eat!) It was one of her frozen lunches, Basil Chicken and Pasta. Needless to say my favorite part is the pasta, and I have to admit I got more than my share. Mom is very generous with the stuff, because she knows how much I like it.

And now I am sitting on her knee dictating my blogs. It looked dicey for a bit, because she has her kindle charging on the desk, and I really wanted to chew on it. However I settled down, so it looks like I am good for the duration. How about that!

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been too long since I got blogs out to every bird and I wish I had something exciting to share but it's been rather dull around here.
Dad is home for the day since he had to go to his doctor. Just the usual 6 month check up because of the cholesterol medicine he takes. You would think the cat would be all over him since he doesn't see him much but Merlin is still following mom everywhere. She is the one who feeds us so I can't blame him for sticking close by! You wouldn't want to miss a snack!
I will be having "turtle tank" cleaning duties once mom gets back from dropping Ian off at work. He wasn't suppose to work today but someone called out again! Ian picks up most of his hours that way!
I have the very important job of watching George and Gracie while mom washes the tank. They go into a little box which mom calls there summer home! I watch to make sure they don't escape! Gracie is always wanting to get out although I have no idea where she thinks she is going to go. It's a turtle thing I guess!
Ian loves the demos at Costco. He eats his way through the store! Mom will try some of the stuff! Last week they had Jelly Belly jelly beans and mom loves those!
I hope your day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Popeye
That was a beautiful service for Angel Mario yesterday. What a great way to celebrate his life. We were there, but silent, as mom was working. On Willie's page are 2 pics of what she was doing yesterday. One of them shows where she was set up, right by the camel driver and lions, and the other shows what she had out on the cart: lion pelt, cheetah pelt, sable horn covering, giraffe ankle bone, an impala skull, a gorilla skull, and a warthog skull. The pelts were new, and got a lot of attention. It was a good afternoon for talking to folks.
Today at the center, mom did the RVS room again, and was supposed to feed the bats. When she got to the treatment room, Jess (staff) had already fed 4 of them, and cleaned their terrarium. She was feeding one of the baby squirrels, and invited mom to feed the other one. Mom gladly did that! She hasn't fed babies for nearly a year, so it was a nice change.
Speaking of squirrels, when mom walked the dogs this morning, there was a squirrel near the bird feeders in front of the house. It ran when it saw mom and the girls, and it ran right into the hide box that mom brought home and got nailed up last week, so it was one of the new kids! Mom was happy to see that. She got more squirrel mix while she was at the center, as things aren't really growing outside yet. So they will have food for at least another week.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Popeye
A few birdies have commented on my mom's fight over getting the hospital bill from last August paid by the insurance co, and Mom would like for me to make it clear that the villain in this scenario is the hospital not Blue Cross. B.C. has asked the hospital for the records of the procedure since they used an invalid code in their billing for several months now. Apparently they finally received all 125 pages of it, and hopefully Mom's claim will finally be processed. This hospital is always a problem, and Mom has sworn to never have anything done there ever again. Of course, hopefully she won't need another hospital stay at all.

I hope everybirdy had a good time at the milonga last night. I think it went quite well, and the awards presentation was a lot of fun for me. I just love giving out prizes to all my friends and buddies. And the food, drinks and music was all terrific. How about that corned beef by Lizzie, and I loved Ms BB's green ice cubes. However when Chyna sang Danny Boy it brought down the house.

Mom went to the gym this morning, and although she came home very sweaty she took me out for my sunbath first thing because the temp was just right if we sat next to the shade of the gardenia tree. There was a good breeze blowing, so I didn't need to worry if she was extra stinky. She did take a shower as soon as we came in though. With a high of 82, if was nice enough. Tomorrow they are calling for 83 degrees, and Mom doesn't go to the gym on Mondays so we will get out early. However those trash trucks will be rumbling by, so Mom might have to put my outside cage in her lap a time or two. It's pretty big, so it really fills up the chair. Makes me a lot more comfortable when those noise machines roar by though.

I hope you are having a great day! So dad made more work for himself by turning small jobs into big jobs? Mom does that too! You should see her when she gets going in the kitchen!hahaha
Today it's just some laundry and dishes. Dad will be her in a few hours and mom will have to go pick him up. He has to go for his checkup tomorrow and then I don't know if he will stay for a few days or just go right back out. It will still be nice to see him.
I hope you all enjoy the day and that mom and dad get a peaceful kind of day!

  Hi Popeye
Oh no, that's horrid! And way too big a job for dad to tackle on his own even if he wanted to do plumbing. Hope it can get taken care of.
We want to thank everyone who hosted and worked hard for another successful milonga. Kiddo, Taz, Sam, Lizzie, and everyone else, including the dancing leprechauns, made it a great event. Congrats to all the picture winners, too. It was tough to vote this time, all the pics were outstanding.
Yesterday was a busy one for mom, and today looks to be a bit better. She is working at the museum from 1 to 4 on the African wildlife cart. It should be interesting, they got the giraffe ankle bone (cannon bone) back on the cart, and added a lion and cheetah pelt. There are also some cool skulls there to put out, a gorilla, a horn from a sable, and a few other things. It should be a fun afternoon.
After mom gets home, she's ours for the evening. It's still cold here, so I know mom will come straight home to be with us. Of course, she'll clean cages first, but then she's ours! I hope you are having a terrific day, getting lots of cuddles, scritches, and maybe even an extra treat. Hugs, Falco

Mom and Dad had to have our house replumbed a year after they moved in, and they say it is not cheap and very invasive. However it is also really important. What a lousy spot to be stuck in! You have our sympathies!

Just flying around BC to remind everybirdy that the Milonga is tonight, and the winners of the Irish Profile Pic Contest will be announced around 8:30 EDT. Be there or be ...hmmm..."not-green?"

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you guys are having a great day! So sorry to hear about the plumbing problems. That can be very expensive to fix. I wonder who told you mom's parents that the whole house had been re-plumed with copper?
Mom likes to watch that show with Mike Holmes. He does the home inspection like no one else and it's shocking what he finds! I think most of the houses he does are in Canada but I imagine it is a problem everywhere. It would be pretty hard to know what your electrical and plumbing looked like unless you knew where to look! I don't think most people do!
We pray that it is all well and that it doesn't cost that much money to fix!!
Enjoy the day!

It is still very cold here, but the sun is shinning brightly! We have a casual day planned, but we will be at the Irish Milonga, to bump wing elbows with our friends! Ziggy will be sitting at the band table with Ms Chyna, that little YCM surprised dad today by flying into the kitchen! He is fully flighted but rarely does fly, he was following his so called girlfriend 'Jen Lynn', who flies over the place! Daddy just smiled, he loves it (a little bit), LOL! Hope to see you all at the Milonga tonight! Saturday love from our home to yours, and spread our love to all in your sweet home, see ya all tomorrow...

  Hi Popeye
Well, it is pretty darned hot here. They were calling for a high of 89 today, but it is 90 out there right now. Looks like they missed it again. Mom took me out for my sunbath as soon as she got home from zumba a few minutes after noon, and it was so warm she sat in the shade and put my outdoor carrier in partial shade. So I still got my sun, but it wasn't nearly as hot as in the full sun.

Mom is in another battle over insurance and medical bill, only this time it is the hospital's fault and Anthem Blue Cross has been struggling with them since Mom's surgery last August! She spoke to a very nice young lady a few minutes ago, and they finally received the records (125 pages!) of the procedure they have been requesting since the whole thing started. Hopefully this time it will be resolved.

Meanwhile I am perched on my mom's knee dictating my blogs. Since she is wearing shorts, she is hoping I will not have an accident. She had better hope I don't get adventurous and climb all over her like I did during yesterday's blogging...Whoops! Here I go!!

  Hi Popeye
I bet that guy will sure be glad to go home! 30 more days seems like a long time, but it will fly by.
Wish we had free movie places here, mom would sure take advantage.
It was snowing when mom left the center today! Where is spring??? She had the bunny room, but there was only one bunny in there, so it was quick. She also cleaned the main aviary and the rolling aviary with the doves in. There were 5 doves and 13 pigeons today! She got the areas cleaned, got all the birds and the bunny fed, then went in the kitchen and did dishes for about 45 minutes, until her hands got too cold and she had to take a break. The gas guys are still up there digging, so maybe some time soon there will be gas again. The dryer turned out to be gas, so the interns are taking laundry to the shelter or to a local laundromat to clean. It's pretty much a full carload when they go, too.
Tonight is the last night of the fish fry at a local church where mom goes every Friday in Lent for dinner for her and Jeff, our neighbor. Mom told him to savor it tonight, as it will be a year before he tastes anything this good again.
I hope you are having a good day, getting spring like weather, and of course, enjoying cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Popeye
Well, Mom got me outside for my sunbath at 9:30 this morning, and it's a good thing she did. It was already so warm she had to move to the shade in about 10 minutes. We hit 91 today, and I think it was already in the 80s that early.

I got pretty good Mom time today, although she deserted me mid-morning to help her friend Judy with a couple of papers for her Masters courses. She is really doing well, and she says she can thank my mom for polishing her writing to always get the good grades. Mom says her ideas are what are getting the grades. Sounds like a mutual admiration society to me!

Then Mom went to get her therapeutic massage, and she stopped at the library on the way home and the car wash so Gloria looks all pretty. Now what is missing from this scenario? You guessed it! She forgot to eat lunch again! I think there is some chicken in the fridge, and if so she will have a piece and I will get a thigh bone. Yippee!

Today is the last day to vote in the Milonga Picture Contest, so be sure and get over there and cast your flock's 5 votes for the day. There are several very close races going on, so you wouldn't want to miss a chance to vote for your favorites. Polls close at midnight EDT. You can find the milonga avatar in either my aviary or the one on the Calendar Page.

  Hi Popeye
Hah! I got my sunbath yesterday after all!! After Mom got finished with my blogging at 2PM, we went back into my room and I flew right on to my outside carrier and climbed in and chirped at Mom. So she took me outside, and it was just barely still warm enough. However we got a good 25 minutes before Mom thought it was cooling down too much. Then today we got out there at 11 (no fooling around from me today!). Good thing we got out early too, because it was pretty darned warm. It was forecasted for 84 degrees today, and Mom thinks it may have even been warmer. Now tomorrow they are saying 88, which is better than the 90 they were predicting. We will still get out early though.

Mom goes to the gym from 4-6 today, so she is spending as much time as possible with me before then. She is buried in her kindle when we are in my room, but all I have to do is land on her shoulder and she gives me all of her attention.

We had the Methi Malai lunch today, and Mom's curiosity finally got the best of her and she googled it. It is an Indian dish, which didn't surprise her. I love the kidney beans, but I insisted on grabbing one before Mom blew on it to cool it down for me. Boy, did I drop that quickly! Once it cooled off, Mom gave it back to me and cooled off a couple more. Yum!!

So mom keeps him guessing? That's about right, isn't it?
Last night's dinner with Gene was a success, he's actually a pretty good cook. Mom also loved spending time with her niece and nephew and their mom, Aunt Ginny. The food and conversation were both quite good, and champagne never hurts anything, either.
Mom is back! She did a tour with preK kids this morning, which they had scheduled for an hour. She wishes the visitor service people would stick to 45 minutes for little kiddies. It's too hard to keep their attention for an hour. After the tour, mom stopped at Trader Joe's for a few things, but now she's back and ours for the rest of the day. We know she's planning to read a few chapters in her book, but other than that, I think we will be getting all the attention we so richly deserve. I hope you are having a good day, getting some spring like weather (It's up to 50 today here), and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Popeye
Well, I certainly should have gotten a sunbath today, since it hit mid-70s here, but I just wasn't having any part of it. Mom tried every trick in the book to get me into my carrier, and I would not cooperate at all. Even the walkabout technique failed, because I wouldn't get on Mom's shoulder to go for a nice walk around the house which always ends up with her taking me to my outside carrier and I climb in. No shoulder, no ride, no sunbath. Not sure why, but it is supposed to be in the 80s tomorrow, so she will really want to get me out there and in the morning too. Hopefully I will be in the mood then.

The voting for the Milonga contest seems to be picking up, so I am hopeful we will have a good representation of the BC birdie's choices for winners. With 5 categories, there are plenty of chances to win something.

Mom is doing laundry today, which I really don't like because she will not let me help. Then later she is planning on baking a batch of her protein oatmeal/date cookies, which also takes her away from me. Am I being punished for not cooperating on the sunbath? Not sure, but I do not like it!!

We got 28 degrees, cloudy and rainy, here in Rock Island, that is no hill for climbers like our flock! Tomorrow our VA Nurse comes to check our daddy out, it will hopefully be another routine visit, and after she leaves, it is off to Sexton Ford to have our SUV repaired, we cannot afford a new one! So many things about our beloved BC has changed, it just don't seem the same, so many of our really old friends have all but dropped out, and yes it hurts a lot!

I have agree with you about your parronts taking you along to Temecula. Your driving assistance would be a big plus. I am sure I am an eggcellent driver, although I have never had the chance to prove it.

Well, voting in the Irish Milonga Pic Contest was just made simpler! The avatar (look for the shamrock) is now in the aviary on the Calendar Page (thank you, Sugar). So when you go to check on hatchdays and such, you can just click on the Shamrock to get to the milonga page and vote. You can find it in my aviary as well. (Thank you, MB, for that lovely avatar!) We had a better turn out yesterday, but there are still birdies who are not coming to vote. PLEASE!!! We want to know whose pics you want to win.

I had a nice morning time with my mom, but then she abandoned me to color her feathers. She says I am lucky she does it at home, since it is quicker. However I am still not allowed out of my room while it is going on; something about fumes. She doesn't really look any different to me though.

We did get outside for a sunbath today about 12:30. It was just warm enough, but Mom was not wearing shorts and a tank top today. However she was able to stay in the sun with me, so I guess it's a trade off. A car slowed down to look at me, so I gave him a good squawk. And the later time to go out meant all those noisy trash trucks were done.

Mom just had a protein fruit smoothie for lunch. Now I do like those, but there is nothing to chew on. I want pasta! At least she remembered to have lunch today. She forgot both Saturday and Sunday. Who forgets to eat??!

  Hi Popeye
Hope your folks were able to get some resolution to their problems at the meeting.
Mom had a leisurely day yesterday, and ended up finishing the book she was reading and going to get her nails done. She got a blue polish with fish. Today mom did the RVS room and the bats again. She talked to the volunteer coordinator, though, and told her it has to be one or the other in her time slot. If she wants her to do the RVS room, that's okay, she can do that and one other small room, but not the bats. If she wants her to do the bats, that's fine, but with 7 of them, it's about a 2 hour job to collect the mealworms, feed them all, and get their cages done.
Mom got the box of squirrels today, too! They caught 5 of them and put them in a nest box, and sent it home with her. One of the other volunteers came here with a long ladder, and they nailed it way up in a tree in the yard. She scattered food under it for them, so they won't go hungry. We will continue tossing food out to them until stuff starts growing here and they can find enough for themselves.
Mom's daughter also came over today to help with the downstairs curtains. Mom wanted everything on all the windows washed and put back up, and Jamie didn't want mom on a ladder without supervision, hahaha. Anyway, now all the window stuff is done for the spring, and it looks and smells better in here.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles, scritches, and good weather. (It's still cold here, but sunny today at least.)
Hugs, Falco

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you are having a great day! Sunday was a complete wash around here since mom was tired from work and getting dad back on the road! I can say that it looks like he didn't leave anything behind this time!hahahahaha He even went and got groceries before he left so he was all set!
Not much going on here today either. Mom is going to run the carpet cleaner after Merlin, Mandy and I are in the bedroom. We are suppose to have thunder storms this afternoon. They don't bother me or Merlin and Mandy can't hear much anymore so it should be fine.
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's spectacular!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Popeye
So how did the meeting go? Just curious if it stirred up a lot of controversy and conversation. Hopefully some of your parronts issues will get addressed.

Well, a faithful few (and you all know who you are) came and voted yesterday and today in the Irish Milonga Contest, but there are lots of birdies out there (and you also know who you are) who have not showed up at all to vote. This is kind of like donating to NPR or PBS, but way more important! (Whoops, Mom says I can't say that, but hey! I'm a bird!). If you haven't come by the milonga page #165848 to cast your votes, please do. And do it every day, PLEASE!! Heck, at least come vote for yourselves. We aren't even getting as many votes as we did entries!

Now that I have my rant out of the way, I would like to complain about my mom not getting me outside for a sunbath today. Just because the clouds didn't burn off until 3PM, and it wasn't warm enough is no eggscuse. After all her world revolves around me, right?

And Mom gave Dad a haircut today. Yes, he still has a ponytail, and I intend to get a ponytail ride at the first opportunity, but that was time she could have spent with me. She says it was absolutely necessary, because his hair was longer than hers, which is criminal. I don't get it, do you?

  Morning Popeye dear heart, from Jenny Lynn
We got cold again here also, but a few weeks ago, we would have thought 31 degrees was a heat wave! We shall take it all in stride as part of our wacky weather this time of the year! We are all well, but dad could be better, he has learned to live with pain, but it does not make it more comfortable for him! We choose not to air our problems on the BC, it is after all, for birds! Please give our Sunday love to all in your sweet home, see ya tomorrow...

Sunday love from Jenny & our Dallas family, WE ARE FOR REAL---

Come visit me, Ziggy~Happy Easter & thanks aunt Mary Haines, Jenny Lynn~Loving that warm sunshine..., Limon Dallas~Love my home & still see my old mom, The Raiders~Happy New Year from the team in 2014!!, Angel Christy~Happy Easter every birdie, Ms LaLo~Happy Easter dear friends... & Mr Flash~Summer at the McAviay.

  Hi Popeye
Mom and Dad got started early today, because the plumbers showed back up with the rebuilt unit for the tub/shower at 9 this morning. It only took them about 15 minutes to put in, because they had already done all the hard part at their shop. So now $630 later, Mom has a working shower. Ouch, but hopefully this one will last another 20 years which Mom and Dad figures is just about how long they will last too.

Then they took off to the bank and the normal Saturday grocery expedition. Mom got my sugar snap peas, and she picked up a small box of blueberries for her cereal. She is thinking that although I turn my beak up at them in my bowl, I might like them on cereal. We shall see.

And it is a bit cooler here today with a high of 76, so I got my sunbath after shopping at about 12:30. (Oops, Mom just realized she forgot to eat lunch again!) Anyway it was very nice out there, but for some reason I didn't want both of my nutriberries. So Mom brought the 2nd one in and put it in my Barrel o' Fun.

And now we are waiting for the tax lady to come. She is never on time, so although she's due right now Dad says we will probably finish blogging before she shows up. Good thing they only have to do this once a year!

Voting in the Irish Milonga Pic contest begins today, and the pics are all numbered now. So get on over there and cast your flock's votes. Remember it is one vote per flock in each of 5 categories: Best Hat, Most Irish, Best Couple, Most Humorous and Favorite Overall Pic. So that is 5 votes per flock per day.

  Hi Popeye
Just a quick c/p today to let you all know we are fine and thinking of you. Mom had 3 tours today at the museum, and now she's home for a couple of hours, then it's off to dinner and the opera. Mom and Aunt Gin are going to Pusadee's Garden to eat, it's a fabulous Thai place, and mom is hoping that Aunt Gin made reservations for inside, not the garden, since it's too chilly. They will see Carmen tonight. This is good for mom, but not so good for us, we will remain in lockdown for the rest of the day!
It's good for mom, too, because it's keeping her mind off Divo today.
I hope you are having a great day. Hugs, Falco

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Lots of laundry being done around here since dad is getting ready to go back on the road. He gets to go to Phoenix so at least it is warm there.
I'm snacking on my apple and supervising all the work. I am very good at supervising and I am not shy about adding my opinion when it's needed!
I hope your day is just perfect! Enjoy it!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥
