  Hi Gus, my love, ♥
hugs and kisses for you...mom hurt her left hand today. She got a pretty good burn on her hand and the tips of her fingers. She had a frying pan in the oven and after she took it out she forgot that the handle was hot and of course she went and picked it up and burnt her hand. She put some ointment on it and has been keeping it on ice...makes it kind of hard to type...

You are the perfect fid and a real sweetie...you are my sweetie for sure.

I love our walks on the beach and the ice cream is great too...lol

Suzi gives her guy a great big kiss...

  Hi Gus
I had my sunbath early today. Mom got me outside at 9:30 by a very dirty trick. She stood over the carrier eating (and sharing) that pb cookie, and then made sure I saw her put a piece on the perch. I was standing on the edge of the carrier, and when I leaned over to check it out she bumped my bottom and in I went and closed went the lid! How rude. Of course, once we got outside I was good with it. And just in time too. Dad was watching the weather on TV at 10:30, and although they still showed a forecast high of 94, it was already 96 degrees! It only made it to 100 today, but any time it hits triple digits that is just too hot.

Good response already on the pig races, and that is very much appreciated. We already have a list begun of new potential riders, so there are plenty of alternates if some of our previous racers are unable to attend or ride.

Mom went to zumba today, and I have to say I just don't understand how she can come home, listen to me calling her, and still insist on a shower first. I admit it was a very quick shower and she did come into my room as soon as she was dressed, but still... Oh, and we had pizza for lunch. Our local store, Albertson's, has a store brand of pizza that is as good as most pizzerias. I liked it, although I have to say spinach has no place on a pizza. I finally have the proof; my mom is nuts!

  HELLO FROM FINNEGAN
Hi Gus,
Momma's busy making German potato salad for the annual bird club picnic tomorrow, and skin sis is making an amazing dessert. I'm going to the picnic and am going to enjoy some of that wonderful food. There probably won't be any left to bring home either. Skin sis is leaving Tues. and Momma is leaving either Tues. or Wed. for CO to visit another skin sis. So my blogs will be very erratic if at all for a while.
Sending lots of love your way from Finnegan

  Hi Gus
Mom thinks they're coming in on Tuesday, so probably Wed or Thurs for the aviary and the other day for the museum. Will let your mom know, though.
This morning mom had a terrible time signing on to BC. It took at least a dozen tries from everywhere on the computer but we're here now!
We got a big surprise yesterday, thanks Uncle Chuck! Mom says they match the kitchen perfectly! And we love our new toys, too.
Well, Aunt Rose is on her way to meet us soon, and we know she's meeting lots of BC folks on the way here, too. It sounds like the ideal vacation to us.
It looks like a perfect summer day here, so we know where mom will be. At least for the afternoon, that is. Later on, she's ours. Tomorrow morning John comes to fix the wall for the backsplash and install the new floor. Mom told him to be here well before noon, so she can go to the pool, hahaha!
I hope you are having a great summer day with lots of good weather and cuddles, too. Hugs, Falco

Sounds like you were a tad too eggcited for the company to be visiting. Know those unfamiliar with fids are more comfortable when birds are calm and not squawking a lot.

  hey buddy !
Happy Saturday :) It's our last day of nice . . . tomorrow goes back to summer - sticky and hot ! That's supposed to last straight through the week . . . figures ! Mom goes in on Wed. and Thurs. for meetings !

The parronts are leaving me today to go celebrate daddy's birthday (which was last week) with mom's cousin Patti. Every year she gets them tickets for the Travers Race at Saratoga . . . only this year American Pharoh is running ! So exciting ! For mom and dad at least . . . me ? I'll be home watching tv and the wild critters out the back window. Mom and dad won't be home till 11:00 or maybe even midnight ! That's a late tucking in ! But at least they're coming home tonight - it's about a 3 hour drive . . .

So you have a great day ! See you tomorrow - love Cookie

I had to say g'bye to my regular vet and next to the avian one. They both can do my nails and wings. She must really be afraid of us parrots ... silly doc.
Mom has found me a new vet to go to in FL. I will only need the one avian vet as it's close to be (10 min). I'm just not thrilled! You understand.
Another gloomy day with NO sun and rain tonight. It did get up to 72 but, didn't feel like it.
I will be off the internet on Saturday night. It's family re-union time.
I'm having lots of internet problems tonight.
Don't forget to cheer for American Pharoah on Saturday's Travers Stakes in Saratoga NY.
See you on Sunday night.

  Hello Gus~
I hope you had a wonderful day! We are very late getting notes out today. Mom took everyone to work this morning and then went to sleep for a while. We have been doing some chores and still have the kitchen to clean up. The dining room has to be mopped also since Jennifer dropped a coke on the floor!
Stayed cloudy here all day but only a bit of rain. It is suppose to really storm tomorrow. mom is driving Jennifer down to visit her dad. He just got back from Florida so she is going to spend some time with him this weekend.
Dad will be home in the morning for another 34 hour break. He was delivering in Spokane and did some local work for them so he gets to spend the weekend with us.
Mom is working all weekend so they won't be going anywhere.
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Gus
This morning was a freezing cold morning! The highs for the day were 75,the lows of 62 and right now at 8:00pm its 66.Its so cold as Mom dictates this for us that her nose is running and she can't stop shivering.She has Dixie on one side of her and Candida on the other keeping her warm under Dixie's blanket which is wrapped around her neck!Mom got us all up and fed us our bean mix,cleaned our cages and collected the trash and put it all in the car along with the recyclables.Then she harnessed Dixie up and got him in the car seat and off they went to the Post Office to have the mail held,then to Nana's.Mom called skin sis when she got there and and skin sis came and met Mom and Nana at Nana's house.Mom transferred all the trash to Nana's car along with Nana's recyclables and off they went to the dump after getting Dixie settled in the cage there with some food and water.From there they went to Walgreen's and then to Falmouth to DQ where Mom got everyone a Blizzard for skin sis's birthday,then they went back to Nana's so skin sis could get into her car and go to PT,they were waiting on skin sis to get out of PT so they could make arrangements to go to the new Mexican restaurant in Falmouth with skin bro but he never got out of work til well after 5:00pm.Mom couldn't hang around that late and Nana was not feeling well with choking and coughing,Mom still had to go back home and finish packing for our trip to visit Aunt's Tanya, Mary,Janet,Arlene,Jinky and Carol and anyone else that could meet up with us from the surrounding areas!Mom waited until near 4:00pm to hear back from skins sis and bro but the later it got the more tired Nana got and Mom didn't want to fight the traffic getting home.Mom packed Dixie up and left for home where she immediately began the packing process with dad.Mom got hers and dads duffel bag filled to the brim,then went and got our bags packed and our cages outfitted with toys to keep us busy on the long ride and Dixie's special perch so he wouldn't fall.Our cages are all papered and water bottles attached and ready to be filled with water in the morning.Kallie and Candida have their bowls in the cages but Mom has to get Dixie a bowl that he can get to easily as he can't perch on the ones that come with the cages with his gouty toes that don't work for him.Mom got lots of presents to bring for every birdie and furballs when they get there and parronts too.Mom has to keep this short as she still has to get the last minute things packed,our harnesses,food and treats for the car ride.Dad has both his and Mom's music in the car,(we love the oldies)where dad likes the 70's-80's.We should be back by next week,Mom is going to see how my dad does on the long drive.All us fids are so eggcited about going with Mom and dad!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and a vote for you too!Loving you always and forever,my sweet friend,Love Dixie

  HI GUS!!!
Pecked a V4U...Today for my campaign blog I will be talking about the Casino Theatre and Village Malt Shoppe Mt.Pocono,Pa..It was originally a one story 1922 Casino building used as a dance hall & night club which was converted to a movie theatre after being purchased by a woman from Stroudsburg...Then it was sold in 1974 to three couples one by the name of Mr.& Mrs. George Litz..The families renovated & modernized the vintage structure opening the business 4/4/1975..Less than a year after the grand opening the structure burned to the ground..The new building opened 4 months later 7/1976.A new single screen movie theatre & new ice cream parlor.The new building was built with a slanted floor allowing a modern movie-going experience instead of the neck-craning involved when watching a film from a flat floor..Within a few years the Litzes bought out their partners and began expanding the operation.Today after more than 30 yrs.the Litz Family still own and operate the Casino which is in its second generation. The Casino is now a 2 screen movie house & ice cream shop. It shows first run movies plus still features an old fashioned soda fountain with many flavors of ice cream as well. Plus the Movie Theatre & Malt Shop they added a Sandwich Restaurant, Children's Arcade, Miniature Golf Operation and a Gift Shop with the 1950's theme of decor featuring nostalgia & retro items were added with items featuring Betty Boop, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, I Love Lucy & other Icons of the 1950's...Well my friends I do hope this might also be something you would like to see while visiting in the Poconos...Have a nice Friday...Thank you all again for voting for me everyday...I certainly do appreciate it...Many wing hugs....CYDNEY :o)

  Hi Gus
vulture populations are plummeting in Africa

Africa's eight vulture species have declined in number by an average of 62 percent during the last 30 years. vultures are one of nature's most important scavengers—a flock can strip a carcass in a matter of minutes.these natural recyclers, which breed slowly and need years to mature, could be extinct in Africa in the next 50 to 100 years.

poisoning from eating pesticide-laced carcasses caused as many as 60 percent of the vulture deaths recorded since the 1970s.When a large predator such as a lion kills livestock, a farmer will sometimes sprinkle poison on the carcass to kill the predator in retaliation, Vultures usually get to the corpse first. They die after eating the pesticide-laced carcasses intended for lions and other predators. Pesticides are poorly regulated in Africa, and sold as "lion killer" . many farmers don't know what the chemicals are really used for.vultures have largely disappeared from commercial farming areas where pesticide are used

Vultures often collide with the wind turbines and are crushed or are electrocuted by power lines

Vultures are also also targets for poachers, who sell their parts to people who use witchcraft. The birds are known for their tremendous eyesight, and many believe their body parts can be used to see into the future.Their brains are ground to snuff by witch doctors who believe the substance has magical powers.

The scavengers also die after feeding on carcasses left behind by poachers. Illegal hunters poison the corpses to throw off law enforcement, which use circling vultures as a beacon for illegal activity.500 dead vultures were found surrounding a pesticide-laden elephant carcass poachers had poisoned leaving the bodies to rot. terrorists groups are profiting the most from poaching affording them lucrative profits to buy guns and bombs

No sunbath today, and you will hear no complaints from either me or my mom. It is 104 out there right now, and since that is what it ended up being yesterday as well I guess we were darned lucky I got outside at all on Thursday. Mom leaves for the gym at 9:30 on Fridays, so if it is a hot one we stay inside. I still got a nutriberry in my Barrel o' Fun though.

If you stop by the Calendar Page or the Milonga Page today, you will see the announcement about next month's milonga. The County Fair is coming back!! The highlight of the fair is the pig races, of course. If you have ridden before and want to ride your pig again, get on over to the Milonga page #165848 and sign up. If you miss the 9/3 deadline to re-sign, your pig will be up for grabs on 9/4 when we start accepting new riders for any pigs that become available. And PLEASE only sign up if you really want to participate and plan to be at the Fair.

You may have noticed that we have nobirdy signed up to run for BOTM in September for the October crown. This means it is wide open, even to previous winners if it has been a year or more since they wore the crown. So if you have always had a hankering to be BOTM and were just to shy to get yourself nominated, this is your big chance! Can't wait to see who comes out on top!

  Hi Gus
We think Rose is coming on Tuesday! Will let you know.
Today mom cleaned the avian nursery at the center. There were the usual suspects in there, pigeons, mourning doves, robins, sparrows, etc., but there were also some cool different birds; a couple of mockingbirds, a killdeer, a catbird, and a crow. It was a busy morning, and when she got home, it was warm enough to go to the pool, so that's where she spent the afternoon. Now she's ours for the rest of the day, YAY!
Still no word about the counter tops, and mom is really getting frustrated. She so hoped it would be done by now. John is coming to put the floor in and get the wall ready for the backsplash on Sunday, so that's some progress at least.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of good weather and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

Phooy! We're having another hot, humid day. Yesterday and the day before were both "Save Power" days so mom and dad left the house for the afternoon. Yesterday they went to visit Ron. He's doing great and will be in the rehab center for about another month.
We got some fresh, sweet, juicy watermelon. Wow, is it ever yummy. Dad bought a small, seedless, mini-watermelon and boy, it's just right. We can hardly wait for treat time today.
Today will be clear and hot, with a high of 100 and a low of 70.
Hope your day was fun.

Guess not all hoomans are familar with fids so they aren't sure how to act around us. With furballs they usually know what to do. Still, with any pet visitors should take their cue from the parronts.

It is good to have the help making the beds eggspecially if wanting to flip the mattress over. Mom has done it by herself but really better with a second person.

Hopefully you'll have some sunshine and warmth for the sunbath.

Busy, busy, busy here the next few days - I think mom is trying to cram the whole summer into just a few days ! Today the folks are visiting some friends in NJ, tomorrow they're going to Saratoga visiting mom's cousin Patty (not actually a cousin - when her parents were first married they lived in a two family house with Patty's family so the two grew up together).

  Hi Gus
Yes, there are 3 bedrooms. I will try the whole house and see where I like it the best.
We finally saw some sunshine today. It would have been a greyt day but mom said we were going to visit Dr McDonald to say goodbye. That was fine but then he trimmed my nails and wings!!! That was so unfair!
Hugs

  Hi Gus
We keep forgetting to tell you just how much we love your new profile picture with you enjoying your nut!Those walnuts are so hard to crack and it looks like you've got the beak and talent to get it opened!Oh,its always so good to get the extra help with the bedding and flipping over the mattress!Those things are so heavy and bulky to try it on your own.My Mom feels the same way,she is doing so many things here getting ready for our trip and yet nothing is done in the house.Now Mom is planning on leaving on Saturday and she has to go out tomorrow with the usual errands on Friday,the dump and a few other things,and then meet skin sis to take her out for her birthday.It will be a late afternoon birthday lunch and Mom will probably be getting home late and still has to finish all the packing and get our travel cages finished with some toys for us and some padding in the bottom of mine so if I should fall off my perch I won't hurt my feet.Mom might not be able to get us on the computer tomorrow night as she needs more time to help my dad pack the car and get the last minute things taken care of.She's gotta go to the PO to make out the card to hold the mail for us.
This morning was a much cooler morning with our highs for the day of 78,the lows of 63 and right now its 77. We have bright sunshine here and it almost feels and smells like a cool fall day.Mom got us all up and as we slept with her last night she didn't have to do much in the way of cleaning our cages.Then she made out some bills to put in the mail and found her suitcases and started to get some things in that.Then my dad came home from working overnight and Mom got him something for breakfast after which he filled up the birdbath with fresh water and fed the wild birds and did a few other things before he went to bed.Mom clipped all of our nails and got some of our things ready to be packed for the trip.She cleaned the bathrooms and is thinking about what to get ready for dinner tonight.Other than that its a boring day here with nothing interesting going on.She video chatted with Skin bro and we are hoping to get out on the deck for some sunshine soon.We did get to join our parronts for dinner on the deck late this afternoon and it was so nice sitting in the sunshine without the high humidity,the dew point is down to 62 now!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and a vote for my sweet friend!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

  Hi Gus
Tbat would be winter weather here!

It is 92 here right now (11AM) and it is supposed to reach 96 around 1, but after all it is August. Mom worked it hard this morning with the walkabout and a pb cookie, and I got outside for my sunbath at 9:30. It was already pretty warm, and Mom sat in the shade the whole time. I liked it, but it was too warm to eat and I dropped both my cookie and the nutriberry Mom brought out for me. However they are still in the carrier, so you know I will climb in there later to get them.

Mom goes for her therapeutic arthritis massage today, and after that she is mine for the rest of the day. She has to do laundry, but it is so warm here (and we are on energy alert) so she will wait until later in the day to do it when it will hopefully be cooler. We have been out of her oatmeal cookies for over a week now, but with this heat there will be no baking going on. Doors and windows all closed, and thank goodness for all the trees and bushes on the west side of the house!

  Hey Gus
You are so welcome buddy...
My mommy got some yummy cotton candy grapes. They only come around once a year and are so yummy. If you haven't tried any yet do so if your mommmy can find them. You will love them.

Happy Thursday!

As you have noticed my mommy's spelling on a lot of my blogs is incorrect.
I think BC acting up again. When she types my blogs she proof reads her typing and all is good. But once she sends out my blog the spelling changes!
Can any of you relate to that?

The weather geeks on the news say today we will be getting temps of 105. I hope they are lying heehee!!!
I'm trying to stay cool and on what Jenny's blogged me I'm avoiding Rag weeds...Thanks Jen!!!

My question of the day is what clan in my tribe am I from? If you read my stories and blogs really good you should know...

Get your memory's working and give me your answer,you will have a chance to win some awesome jewlery...

Much Love to my friends and relations
Your King War Chief

  Hello Gus~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still very pretty here and only in the 80's. Rain is suppose to come back for the weekend and we sure could use it! We are not use to being so dry for so long. Everything is yellow and I want it to be green again!
We are getting laundry done today. Mom has to work tonight but she'll have Friday night off. She is going to the library later to get me more story books and she will see what movies they have in. Friday movie night is my favorite! Even if the movie isn't good I'll still have popcorn!
Enjoy the day and I hope you get to do lots of fun things!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Gus
We knew you'd make a good impression! You are the perfect fid, aren't you?
There's not much to report on today. Mom went to the gym and swam indoors again yesterday, since it never got out of the 60s here. Today she is getting a haircut, then later going out to dinner with her sister.
No news on the kitchen: the floor isn't in yet, and neither are the counter tops, so the tile isn't in place yet either. It's still taking up residence on the dining room table.
I hope you are having a fun day, getting in some summer sunshine and lots of love. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.

  Hi Gus
It's Sawyer.
Mom and dad both worked at the police dept. yesterday. And they both attended the open house meeting in the afternoon. Dad didn't really get to do much out in the field. By the time he got a radio and a car and got the car washed, (somebody parked it under the purple trees again) it was time for the meeting. Mom and dad are all ready for the open house. Nothing has changed from last year so they can use the same sign board as last year.
After the meeting mom and dad went to Costco and bought a really nice, stainless steel prep cart for the kitchen. Dad has to put it together today.
Today will be clear, hot and humid, with a high of 98 and a low of 69.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

Come visit me, ALEX, POPEYE, SAWYER, BLUE & JEWEL, GINGER & CALICO.
