Hi! My name is CALICO

I am a Meyer's Parrot from La Habra, CA.

Cali, Whiner

22 years old   F

Meyer's Parrot

I like red grapes, cucumbers and peanuts. I LOVE red chili peppers.

I like to sit on the top of my cage so I can get head scratches.

I don't like my other sisters climbing on my cage.

My mom and dad gives me lots of head scratches and yummy treats.

I speak english. When I want attention I call my dad's name. It works every time. It's also a lot of fun to give my dad kisses right after I eat a chili pepper..

Humans can be a lot of fun once you train them properly..

  Hello Calico~
I hope you are having a great day! Oh mom saw the preview for the Finest Hours and she will be seeing it also. Probably when it comes to the RedBox in a few months. She likes Chris Pine and thinks he is a very good actor. He got the accent right! It looks like a very exciting movie and they are always good when it's based on a true story!
So what did you mom get from the jewelry store? Mom is not big on jewelry mostly because if I see it I am going to try to pull it off! It's true. I just want to look at it!!hehehehehe
Enjoy the day sweetie!

  Heya, Calico!
Mom and I had a good chuckle about the salmon effect at the buffet. They must have some really good food for it to be packed like that!

We had some snow last night, and Grandpa said that Brian, his next door neighbor, used his snow blower to clean off his drive and walk. So he went for a paper, and then to get some nuts and bolts for a snowshovel that should be retired, but Grandpa loves it as it is very lightweight. He also picked up two more 25 lb. bags of ice melt (the cheaper stuff but since it is getting to the end of winter, should be fine). So Mom stayed home with me. Now we get the cold--it is 15 now, but the wind chill is 2. Glad I have my heater for tonight!

Wing hugs coming atcha!

We thought that puppy-monkey-baby commercial was disgusting!
My parronts like Golden Corral too. Sometimes they go there for lunch.
Hope you had a nice day!

  Hello Calico~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. We are finishing up laundry and getting mom ready to go back to work tonight.
McKenzie is feeling happy today. I can tell because she keeps getting into trouble!hehehehehehe
Mom went to Costco yesterday. The problem with that is trying to find places to put the stuff. We have a case of applesauce sitting on the computer desk and cereal on the breakfast bar. The paper towels are on the dryer and there is a case of Starbucks White Chocolate Frap on the file cabinet. Those are for Jennifer. The freezer and pantry are full also. I know it sounds like a lot but mom only goes there every 2 or 3 months. Depends on how long that case of toilet paper lasts! There is a really big bag of broccoli in the fridge. Mom just won't give up! She knows I'm not going to eat it but since she is going to make me some chop I have a feeling she will sneak it in there. I'll just eat around it!hahahahaha
It's almost like Spring here today! I fell so bad for all those out east who are having to put up with snow. Wish you could all be here with me!
Enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big ole hug too!

  Heya, Calico!
Yeah, there were not too many commercials that Mom thought were good at all. Much less funny.

The Dorito commercial was funny--that baby wanted a chip, for sure! But they were not really memorable for the right reasons. Wish we could un-see the puppy monkey baby thing. Gross!

We got two inches of snow here. Should have been a dusting but of course the narrow band of it stayed right over us in a stall. Mom went to get a paper for Grandpa and then went over to clean up the driveway (he had snow blowed it already) from the snow that fell after he did it once, and do the sidewalk and salt everything down. He kept saying to Mom it was good enough but she doesn't do a half-arsed job, so...Now she is home and doing laundry. Guess we get more of the stuff, but hopefully it won't stick!

Wing hugs coming your way!

  Hello Calico~
I hope the day was great! Mom had to take McKenzie to the vet this morning and it took longer than she thought it would. McKenzie got to see Dr. Jennifer who is my vet! Lucky girl!
McKenzie still has to take the mange medicine for another month even though the mites are dead. She got her last shot also. Mom had planned on taking her to Petco after the vet visit but the spots where they did the scrapings to check the mange was bleeding so mom didn't want to take her around other pets and people. She is not contagious but the spots she has makes people nervous. We have to wait for her obedience classes because of that and she can not be spayed until it's cleared up since anesthesia can cause stress and put us back to the beginning with the mange! Since she is now on her 3rd month of meds, we don't want to go backwards!
This is moms last night of vacation! Bummer!! We had a nice time but sure do wish it could have lasted longer!
I hope your evening is perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

  Heya, Calico!
Sounds like a greyt play! The ones that use multi-media are cool, and sure am glad your folks found it riveting (could not resist!).

Gotta say it was a good game, and sure was happy Peyton won. I don't think that the Panthers had any idea how GOOD the Broncos defense is. Mom knew. They annihilated the Pack, and creamed the Pats. Just by the strength of the defense, Mom figured the Broncos would win. Was glad it was a close enough game.

Mom went to Grandpa's and came home at half time. I was really happy, too. It got to 44 here today--and it sure looked lovely outside! Guess we have some snow coming in tonight and tomorrow, but not a whole lot. Guess if there is more, Mom will be over at Grandpa's salting stuff down after shoveling it.

Wing hugs coming your way!

I hope you are having a fun day! We finished watching Agents of Shield and now we are watching Armageddon! I love that movie. Space Shuttles, asteroids and lots of stuff blowing up! My kind of movie! Mom has seen it a bunch of times. She thinks it's the very first DVD they ever bought!
I hope you have a wonderful night!

I hope your day was fun too! We are really trying to have a nice quiet evening but McKenzie is not cooperating. She is running all over the place and being crazy. It's her last run around before she goes to bed. She has gotten really good about going to bed.
I'm going to hang out with mom after the other two are put to bed. They are the trouble makers and I am the good bird!hehehe
Have a lovely evening!

  Heya, Calico!
Yowsa! 20 minutes for the eggs to last before the final one is gone? Gonna be a fun party, huh? Mom will be going by Grandpa's tomorrow and will probably come home at half-time. No big parties here, but that is okay.

Mom went to get her feathers cut today, and her hairdresser said she loved the website. And sounds like Mom could get on as a consultant for other stuff that her hubby does. That would be cool. It sounds like there is a lot of stuff in the works. Guess we shall see. Then Mom said she wanted to see the hubby's laptop--it has been in to Best Buy 8 times in two years for issues. Mom says she wants to see what the problem is when he gets it back.

Then she made soup today. Oh, boy! I knew the minute she took that stock pot out that something good was gonna happen. Just got done having my second nibble at it (buried the beak the first round). Just yummy!

Hope your Saturday was awesome and you got lots of good Mom time like I did.

That was a good idea for your parronts to buy the eggs already cooked. Much easier that way! Yes...they do go fast at a party. Everyone loves deviled eggs. Wonder where that name came from?

  Heya, Calico!
Glad your Dad's leg is healing up well! Hope they did not try to scrape anything off at the clinic like they usually do. Sounds like it will be a greyt Super Bowl party, too, with lots of good food. Hope your folks bring you some back!

Today Mom went to her mechanic as she found some type of bracket under the car. It could have been from the owners parking in her spot for a short time, or feel off something, but since it was sort of under the car, near the muffler, she figured she better get it checked. They could not find anything there. As long as she was there and they were not busy, she got an oil change and then went to get popcorn at the apple orchard store, and then ran to Meijer for grapes and bison--they had ground bison! She loves the stuff, so I know that we are gonna have some yummy bison burgers. Panther and his flock can relate how healthy bison is, we are sure.

Then she came home and we had a lovely afternoon together. The best!

I hope you are all having a wonderful day! Glad to hear dad is better also! It's good that he can ignore the pain for a while! Hopefully it will not be too long before there is no pain to ignore!
We saw the previews for the Good Dinosaur and it looked good! Mom gets a free movie from the Redbox today since it's her birthday, so we are trying to figure out what to watch. I think they are going to get the Man from Uncle. Mom loved that show when she was a kid so hope the movie is good! She gets a free drink at Starbucks too but she hasn't decided if she just wants to get her usual ice tea or try something different. She doesn't have to get it today so maybe she'll get one tomorrow!
Enjoy your evening!!

  Heya, Calico!
Oh, I know it is not easy being a bird! Can relate to that one, for sure!

Another grey day here. No snow. No rain. Mom was up working on the website she is doing for her hairdressers boss until 2 AM this morning. She was just doing colors for the header banner and footer! Can you believe that? It was disgusting.

I was not in good graces either, today. I slipped on her shoulder and went forward, and my beak locked on her upper inner arm. She has what she calls a beak-marked blood blister about 1 inch around. She was not pleased. She even chased me back on my playgym cuz I came down from there without her telling me it was okay. I called for her, and she would not answer me. I guess she must have been pretty mad, huh? I am on her shoulder now, so I guess she forgave me. What is a bird to do??

Those winds are strong for here, too. Glad they died down for ya.

We missed the snow so far--got rain, and sleet and some snow mixed in this afternoon. Mom had a meeting with her hairdresser's hubby about the website and of course, it started to do the rain-sleet-snow when she had to run from the car into Starbucks (she is not a fan of their coffee, but he loves it). Got good info and is working on that. But I am being ignored (Mom says no way!) and I am acting pretty grumpy today. I don't like her leaving to go anyplace. Spoiled, huh?

We did more cleaning today. Mom was trying to sort out papers but McKenzie kept grabbing them and running off. She must know that it's a big no no since she ran off! Most of it is junk that everyone just threw into a basket.

I hope you had a great day too! Oh we couldn't get on BC yesterday until way afternoon yesterday. I guess they must do their work on Sundays because it always seems to be Sundays.
Mom and Ian went to Taco Bell tonight and got rear ended on the way home. They were in the left turn lane and the guy just didn't stop in time. Luckily only the Seahawks trailer hitch cover got bent. It was a small car and mom drives an Envoy. She was lucky that she didn't get pushed into the guy in front of her! McKenzie was in the back seat and she got really scared. She was trying to crawl into the front seat!

Wow, sounds like your folks were super busy, too! Too funny about the budgies being slobs! They are so little, how could they make big messes? Maybe it is the aliens from Jedi's stories?

Glad you are getting the rain, cuz we know you need it! But not the wind to make a mess of what your Dad cleaned already!

It was a lovely day here, with a temp of 41 and sun. Mom ran to Sam's to pick up some stuff there, and then came home for a bit. Then she went over to Grandpa's to salt the walk and the drive, and get that darn patio roof snow/ice off. She says there is only a small piece that broke off where she could not reach it. She is happy. She also did Grandpa's taxes, and finally got the W2 from her former employer. So she started to work on hers, and decided she will do it tomorrow. Hehe!

So far so good, looks like the big snowstorm will miss us. Hopefully it will be more rain, and looks like it should stay warm enough to prevent anything from freezing. Sure hope so!
