  Hi, Gus
Happy Thanksgiving to you and the family.

Since the Ak Mak crackers are meant for hoomans the parronts could eat 'em if they like crackers. That is good to share with the wild birds anything you are unable to eat. We do the same with our leftovers.

Guess that hitting a deer is unavoidable at times. Know it very hard on hoomans to have that happen and hopefully the deer is okay since it was able to run off back into the woods. Suppose cause of accident is force of nature? Do car ins policy has a special clause to account for hitting wildlife by accident? Know it could happen here in the hills but hear of it happening more in the eastern states.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Gus
It's Sawyer.
Mom and dad spent all day yesterday fixing food for today. Boy did it smell good. We wanted a sample but NOOO!!! Mom said it was for Thanksgiving! This morning dad is baking the green bean casserole so it will just need warming up. Mom and dad are going to mom's sister's house this year.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

V4U today. We're flying by to wish you and your family a wonderful and a very Happy Thanksgiving. :) Mom's busy in the kitchen, Dad's busy reading the paper. LOL :) Everyone will be coming to our house for Thanksgiving lunch today. Our flock has been told that we will get some of the food, too. :) Mom is sorry that she has not been blogging lately. Along with being busy, our oldest dog just had a cancerous tumor removed. So mom has been preoccupied with that. Thank you for your friendship, and have a wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving. :) From, Mayo

  Hey Gus,
Okay next set mom blows the whistle so every
Birdie knows time for the next set.

Laka says tails even before Pookie calls it! Haha she says and the coin is tossed and it falls tails in the sand so the girls serve.

Kacey serves and it goes over to Dixie and he bumps it up to Gus and he sets it up for Kiddo who spikes it over and Laka slides in the sand to hit the ball but Kiddos spike is too fast for her.

The boys yell yay !! And high four each other.

So now Pookie serves and it goes over to Candida and she hits it over to Cori who bumps it up to BooBoo who spikes it over to the dead spot and all the boys fly in the sand to get the ball but unable to. The girls all yell way to go BooBoo! And high four each other.

Little Angela turn and she serves the ball and it goes over Mikey and he bumps it up to Raffi who sets it up for Chipper who spikes it over to the girls dead spot and all the girls crumble to get the ball but end up in a dust storm.

The boys all cheer way to go Chipper! And high four each other.

Cookie serves and it goes over to Kacey who bumps it up Celine who sets it up for Cori who spikes it over and Pookie catches the ball. Pookie!! All the guys yell!! Pookie shrugs his shoulders and says sorry guys I was thinking of a pizza and just caught the ball. :(

Yay the girls all cheer, Cori, Cori!!! Then high four each other.

Pookie rolls the ball under the net for Chyna to serve. She serves it and it goes to Gus and he bumps it over to Pookie who sets it up for Gus who spikes it over to the girls dead zone. Yay the boys scream and high four each other.

The gear the whistle blowing and Pookies tummy growling and know its lunch time !!

Everyone heads to the tent for some yummy egg salad sandwiches and tuna with cucumber sandwiches and some fine chicken salad sandwiches along with sweet or sour pickles.

There's plenty of juice and bottled water so everyone help yourself!

Mom makes sure that every birdie has a sandwich and some juice or water to drink.

Everyone needs to stay hydrated now, I don't want any birdie fainting from heat stroke okay??

Oh sorry there's also some chips too, to go along with the sandwiches. She puts some on every birdies plate as she walks around.

One hour to the last half of the game, she shouts.

As in a few hours it will be dark.

Every birdie enjoys the lunch and talks about the game.

I'm sure the snow will be high again this winter. But we better get a real summer!
Oh no, I'm so sorry about the deer/car accident. That happens so much up here. I'm glad that they are all right ... it's very scary. It doesn't take too long to fix as they usually just replace the parts.
Looks like Thursday will be snow with a high of 25 and a low of 14. That's ok cause I get to enjoy a special dinner with my parronts!
Wishing all of you a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

  Hi Gus
Oh how awful that SIL ran into that deer,how scary that must've been to have the deer land on the hood of the car and break the headlight and there must be an awful dent in the hood of the car and that insurance thing is such a pain in the tail feather!It was good that everyone was wearing their seat belts,I think that if the deer ran into the woods he was all right!But I can see how the poor grand would feel upset and worry about the deer!
We woke up to a dark as night time day here with temperatures at 45 and then they quickly dropped to 43 and the rain just kept on pouring down,the lawns and yards are flooded and the lows for tonight will be 34 and Mom and all of us are just praying it won't freeze up so my dad won't have to go to work and Mom and everyone has to cancel Thanksgiving dinner!
Nana called Mom early this morning and wants Mom to come over to her house early tomorrow morning so she can help her prepare the meal and get all the cooking ready!Mom will try and get to Nana's by 10:00am as Nana isn't feeling well,quite dizzy and tired. Its raining here and has been since last night sometime,its been dark as night time and the rain just keeps pouring down,can you believe that Mom had to put the light on in our room at two this afternoon?
If I don't get to be on BC tomorrow I want to wish you and your wonderful flock and family the best Thanksgiving ever!Mom's sister may be coming over tomorrow also to Nana's with some of her kids!They are all grown and some have moved out of the house and are living on their own and in college.It will be a long day for sure!
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 forever green ekkie friend!Love always,Dixie

  Hi Gus
mom always does our blogging for us after we go to bed at night.last night while mom was playing with me before bedtime she noticed this sour smell coming from my mouth and nares. naturally mom panicked and first thought that came to her mind was sour crop which can be very dangerous. i of course was acting fine, maybe not playing as much as usual but sure wanting lots of head scritches. no loss of appetite cause mom gave me a cashew and i gobbled it right down. i did seem to be very thirsty so mom added a tiny amount of apple cider viinegar to my water and i drank quite a lot of it. mom was going to take me to the vet first thing in the morning but instead of doing our blogging she was doing research on sour crop. this morning when mom got up the sour smell had dissipated quite a bit but is still there. i am still eating and drinking and acting fine so mom will continue with the vinegar and see if the smell goes away completely.

mom had to run to the store for a few things and after coming home and bringing her packages inside she noticed 2 house wrens that seem to be tangled up in something who were making quite a ruckus. mom left her packages on the front porch and got a step stool from inside to stand on so she could reach the braanch. they had somehow gotten their legs caught in a birdhouse mom had stuffed with our doggies hair clippings from this spring. mom tried to pull the hair out with one hand while holding the birds with her other hand but she coudlnt pull the hair out. she then gently pulled the birds legs out of the hair. she doesn't know if all the hair was off the legs or if their legs were damaged but , man, did they ever fly way fast. mom then pulled out all the tightly packed doggie hair clippings from the bird house and threw it away.something else for mom to feel guilty about.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

Mom also made those energy bars for us to eat, it's in the baking pan.

Full of peanuts, peanut butter and raisins and granola for energy.

Also there's 2 pans of pineapple cake so help yourself.

Everyone grabs a juice box or a cup full of juice and sit in the shade and hydrate.

The boys sit with the boys and the girls sit with the girls going over their strategy.

Raffi says I dunno about you guys but them girls is strong players!

Yeah I agree says Dixie, who knew Little Angel had it in her!

The girls team discuss the boys too. Chyna says I think we can still win this one and Kacey agrees. We just hafta show more aggression !! Argggg!!

Hahahaha then all the girls start laughing and that peaks all the boys interest, what are they laughing about says Pookie.

Everyone rests up before continuing the next half of the volleyball game, boys versus girls.

  Hey Gus,
Well it's a sunny hot day of 81 degrees here in Hawaii.

Both teams are getting ready and start stretching and warming up for their game play and eyeing up the other team.

Kacey puts her wings to her eyes and then points to the boys team as if to say I've got my eye on you! Hehehehe

Mom says the game will end at 5 no matter who wins okay?

When I blow the whistle it's time, either a juice break or lunch break but two short whistles means the game is over. Both teams agree, good.

Pookie calls heads before Laka gets to say anything.

The coin falls and it's tails! Yay!! The girls team serves first.

Chyna serves the ball and it goes over to Gus who's in the middle and bumps it over to Pookie who sets it up for Chipper and he spikes it over to the dead spot and all the girls scramble to get it but unable to. Yay the guys all high four Chipper, way to go buddy!!

Kiddo is up serving and it goes over to Cori who bumps it up to Little Angel who sets it up for Laka and she spikes it over and Raffi dives into the sand for a save and hits it up to Dixie who volleys it over to BooBoo who bumps it up to Kacey who hits it over and lands by Mikey who bumps it over to Pookie who tries to spike it over but it hits the net.

Yay!! The girls team scream. Now it's Sugars turn to serve and she hits it so effortlessly over to Mario who bumps it up to Willie who sets it up for Kiddo who spikes it over and Laka dives in the sand to get the ball but Kiddos fast spike ball was too fast for her and sand flew all over as she dived for it.

Now Chipper serves and it goes over to Kacey who bumps it up to BooBoo who spikes it over to Gus and he dives in the sand and barely able to save the ball. Kiddo runs and bumps the ball back into play and Peepers volleys it over to Cori who bumps it up to Chyna who sets it up for Sugar and she spikes it over and lands in the dead spot. While all the boys try to dive for the ball they all end up in a dust of sand clouds with sand flying all over.

Yay Sugar!! All the girls yell and high four each other, good one !! :)

Now Cori serves and it goes over to Raffi and he bumps it up to Mikey who sets it up for Dixie who spikes it over to Little Angel who hits it but it goes out of bounds. Awwww the girls sigh.

Yay Dixie!! The boys all high four each other, good going Dixie!!

Mikey serves and it goes over to Kacey and she bumps it up to BooBoo who sets it up for Little Angel who spikes it over to the dead spot and all the boys rush to get up but end up in a cloud of dust. Yay Little Angel!! They all high four each other and she says in your face boys!

They hear the whistle and its a juice break and about time says Pookie as he's been sweatin' bullets out there.

They all run to the tent for some cold refreshing juice. Mom says there's pineapple, guava, lilikoi, orange, grape, apple and grapefruit juice so help yourself.

Mom also made those energy bars for us to eat, it's in the baking p

  Hello Gus~
I hope you are having a great day! We got to talk to dad this morning. He is in Iowa now and it's snowing there! He is at a truck stop and is going to stay there for the day. Truck drivers are only allowed to drive a certain amount of hours a day and if dad is on a road where there is an accident and he gets stuck, he will run out of hours. If he takes a break right now he gains more hours and won't have to worry about running out. He's on his way to Oklahoma. He actually told mom that the snow looked pretty! Dad usually hates snow!
We are getting things ready for mom to start her workweek tonight and for Ian who starts his tomorrow. Hopefully Black Friday won't be too crazy. Mom just hopes everyone has a good time.
I hope your Thanksgiving is just perfect! I am thankful for your friendship and know how very blessed I am to have found such excellent friends here on the BC!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  HI Gus
Bats have very sharp teeth, but they are small animals. Mom puts 2 latex gloves on her left hand when she picks them up, and she uses a towel to lift them out of their cages, so they can't really bite through all those layers.
Daisy surprised mom with how well she did in class last night. She picked up things easily and practiced with mom and never tired out. The clicker training works!
BC is running so slow!
We all want to wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving in case we don't get online tomorrow. Mom is cooking and the bird is big, so we have to get up early to supervise.
It was supposed to flurry today, but it's been snowing since 9AM. There's no sign of a let up either. We are hoping everyone who is traveling this holiday gets to a destination safely.
Mom got her nails done this morning, and got her new driver's license. She kept looking outside while she was at the nail salon, hoping that the snow would stop, but no such luck.
Now that she's home, once she's done serving as our typist, she will bake pies, get the cranberry sauce ready, and do other little things so tomorrow goes smoothly. We are only having 10 people here, but it's still a chore to make sure all goes well. I hope you are having a good day, getting to taste test, or at least supervise, all the cooking that's going on. Make sure to get lots of scritches and cuddles today, too. Hugs, Falco

It's Sawyer.
Mom and dad were up and gone early yesterday. First they went to the Magnolia Bird Farm for our food. On the way there, their friend Bob called and they set up a time for dinner. Then mom and dad went to free movie day and saw "Dolphin Tale 2". It was a true story about an aquarium in Florida and how two dolphins got together. Great movie! Then they met Bob at home and decided to try Golden Corral again. this time they walked right in and were seated. As before, the food was great. By the time they got home it was time to tuck us in for the night.
Today will be clear, with a high of 86 and a low of 52. Mom and dad will be working on food for Thanksgiving. Mom's mom is coming over to use our kitchen to fix Thanksgiving food, also. Nothing in her kitchen works. Please don't get dad started on that subject.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

  Hi, Gus
Let us know if those crackers are acceptable for you to try and if you like 'em if able to try. Not sure how we discovered 'em as they've apparently been around a long time. Think just saw 'em at Trader Joe's and try a lot of stuff there.

Would think dropping the walnuts first to get that initial crack helps the squirrels get it open the rest of the way. Sure a lot of work to get the nut out of it too though.

Lots of food at the Thanksgiving meal yesterday. There'll be leftovers for days and mom'll make soup and a couple other things with the turkey.

Sounds like you enjoyed watching the chopping and dicing and makes it easier to get things cooked and baked. Did you eat any of the nuts or just tossed 'em all around. Always fun to have the parronts play pick up.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

OK ... I gotcha .... sending Cappy over to pre-crack the Walnuts and the almobnds hehehehe. I have trouble with the walnuts too but I can follow Cappy around and steal the ones he pre-cracks and drops lol. Mom is usually nice and at least cracks the nuts a little before setting them out. I get bored to easy on the hard ones and just throw them at mom or the cat lol. Have a Happy Thanksgiving. V4U. Hugs.

SNOW ! It's only Thanksgiving ! The forecast has been downgraded from yesterday at least - last night when mom tucked me in, they were calling for 12-18 inches, this morning it's only 8-12 ! I say that's still too much ! Mom is waiting to see if she'll have school - lots of districts around have already called it a day off, since it's only a half day anyway -

Later it'll be make the stuffing and chop up veges - pies are now done and in the fridge :) Yum, yum, yum :) What's up at your perch for the holiday ? Whatever it is, I sure do hope it's a happy one :) And I hope someone will open a walnut for you ! love Cookie

I sure don't know why our moms can't see us. We are right in front of them. We see them! They are silly!
Wednesday, my mom is baking and I'm going to help her. She will be getting everything ready for turkey day! I can't wait to eat my dinner with the family. Mom puts my t-stand next to her and I have my own plate. I enjoy sitting at the table.
This morning I woke to see the winter wonderland. Everything was white with lots of snow for dad to plow again ... hehehe. We got another 9 inches over night. Along with the cold, we will have daily snow starting on Thanksgiving morning. I have 2 new snow pics up for those who like it. I think I'll just go back to my perch for the day under the extra blankets.

This morning was a fairly sunny day with temperatures in the 50's and it was warm considering how cold it was a few days ago.Mom got ready early and left to go to Nana's after she cleaned our cages and fed us our breakfast.Both Dixie and Mario had to stay home today as Mom was going down this end of town to complete her and Nana's Thanksgiving meal.Mom picked up Nana and they came back down to Hyannis and went to Trader Joe's and got some things,then they went to Joann's Fabric but didn't find anything there,then they went to Shaw's and both Nana and Mom got some things marked down and Mom paid her NStar bill there and then Mom went to the Post Office and then after that they headed back to Mashpee and went to Stop&Shop and got some things there and then to the nature food store,but Mom couldn't find any white millet for Mario there,then to Walgreen's,then back to Nana's where Nana made them some lunch of a salad with cranberries and zucchini on the side and toast.Then Mom came home around 4:30pm and as she was unpacking her car my dad came home and helped her finish unpacking while Mom came in and put the light on for us and fed and cleaned us out for the night.Then she made dad some dinner and now she is done with the dishes we are finally going to have Mom take our dictation so we can get our visits in!Mom had parked her car at Trader Joe's and when she came out her car was covered in seagull poop from top to bottom and now my dad has to clean that all off for her!
Our highs for the day were 59 and our lows will be 44.
They are talking some kind of storm for us here tomorrow,we are supposed to get one to two inches of rain and the temperatures are supposed to drop and if that happens the roads will freeze and my dad will have to go to work and we'll get no Thanksgiving!Some forecasts are calling for snow here and we have no idea who to believe!
Gus you are so funny keeping your sweet Momma on the run between her slicing and dicing for the Turkey dinner to playing pick up in the other room with all those nuts in the too small bowl!

My parronts got their shopping done today. They didn't want to be in the stores tomorrow.

Well, happy to report that Mom got back from driving her friend down to her disability hearing in time to blog, although it didn't go well. That darned judge sent her back for another doctor's visit after telling her she should try telemarketing! How rude! And he was late too. She and Mom had to wait an hour for him, then they got stuck in construction traffic on the way home. Mom's friend was not very happy.

At least it was still warm enough when Mom got home at 1 for us to share lunch and then go out for a sunbath at 1:30. I only got 30 minutes outside, but the vet said that is good for keeping my feathers healthy...and I do look amazing!

No biting today, and so far no cranky behavior at all. Mom's now got a pretty nasty bite from me on the back of each hand, so I had better cool it for a while. That first one is a week old and still looks awful. Who knew my beak was so sharp?

Susan and Riley Ann have joined the cheerleaders for the Milonga Bowl, and I forgot to announce our referees! They are C R Jake and RaneBeau; both are big boys who can stand up to anybirdy, even Jenny Lynn!

  Hey Gus!
Our Tom turkey is a strange bird. I'm still trying to find his head! He seems very quiet too.
We couldn't get on BC Sunday night, Monday morning and today we keep getting squawked!
I love nuts! I can't crack a walnut either!
Have a nice day!
Love,

  Hi, Gus
Hopefully there isn't anything in the Ak Mak to prevent you from trying 'em. We like that it doesn't have anything artificial or eggcess salt.

Seems like BC is working okay now. Thankful that it only last a day or so and not that week or whatever that last error was.

We seen the squirrels dropping the walnuts (from the neighbor tree) down on the ground and assume they are trying to break it open. Have seen many shell halves so it must work enough to get it cracked enough as don't think them squirrels have sharper teeth than our beaks. Hopefully your dad saved a tad of walnut half for you.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Gus
Mom had fun at the wildlife center yesterday, she did the RVS animals again, which means she fed the bats. She loves doing that, they think they are so fierce, baring their teeth at her! She also did the raccoons outside, as well as the raccoon and ground hog inside.
Today we are going to make cornbread for the stuffing. I hope we all get a sample. If mom has the ambition, she will bake the pies, but she would prefer to wait until tomorrow so they will be fresher. Mom's daughter ordered a fresh local turkey which she will pick up after work and drop here on her way home.
Mom does have an errand today: she needs a 6 foot lead for Daisy's class tonight. She got the mat, the treats are ready, the clicker is in her pocket, but she doesn't have a small 6' leash. The one she has is really thick, too big for that little dog. I only hope she is able to teach that dog some manners! Mom has done her homework all week, so maybe there's a chance this dog will be better by the end of class.
I hope you are all having a good day. Don't forget to come by the Lakers page today to celebrate Thanksgiving with our team! Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Happy Thanksgiving, Peppino, Happy Thanksgiving, Divo & Falco, Happy Thanksgiving.

  Hi Gus
It's Sawyer.
Dad had to go and get a Life Scan yesterday. We all thought it had something to do with x-rays but dad said it was for electronic fingerprints. We didn't know that dad had electronic fingers? He said it was for the Police Dept. He had to go to Cal State Fullerton Police to have it done. There was something wrong with La Habra's machine. When he got there his form was the wrong one so dad had to get the correct one and go back. What a pain! The scan only took about five minutes but dad drove about 45 minutes total. Glad gas prices are still dropping.
Today is free movie day so you can guess where mom and dad will be.
Today will be clear, with a high of 80 and a low of 56.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

  Hey Gus !
I missed you so much ! ! ! I missed you ! Mom came home from the g'parronts on Sunday and couldn't get on . . . she did some baking instead. She got up yesterday morning hoping for the best ? . . . nope ! So she did some Christmas shopping in her jammies. We were so happy when she came home from school :)

I was home with daddy yesterday - at one point I started growling and growling. Daddy couldn't figure out what was the problem till he looked outside - there on the back deck snoozing under the chairs (which are covered in plastic for the winter) was a big ole' raccoon ! ! ! Dad made lots of noise and banged things until he lumbered off back into the woods ! Then he gave me a piece of kiwi for being such a good watchbird ! ! !

Have a good day my friend ! love Cookie watchbird !

  Hi Gus
I don't understand it either! Why can't our moms see us when we can see them? We are right there!
Sounds like you work really hard on those nuts. Are all the nuts ok for us? Mom is never sure.
Sorry every birdie ... couldn't get on the BC yesterday. We had 42 degrees with rain again today. It was nice to watch snow melt. We lost almost 1/3 of our snow. But, on Tuesday we will be back to 32 degrees with snow. I guess I have to put that extra blanket back on the perch tonight. How about sharing some hot chocolate with me? OOPS ... it's snowing already tonight!
Hugs

  HI GUS
yesterday was quite a day for us. it was mom and dads 37anniversary and they were actually going to leave the house and go out for dinner. dad asked mom to trim Boo Boo's beak because he said the top was way to long and she couldn't eat properly with it. so long. when mom took a look she saw that Boo Boo had somehow broken the bottom half of my beak off and my top beak was about 3/4 of an inch longer. she wrapped Boo Boo in a tea towel and got a good grip of my head and held her beak together and started filing away with the emery board. she moved fast because she doesn't want to hold her in that position for very long. at one point she noticed blood on her hand and thought maybe i had bitten her so she stopped to checked and make sure Boo Boo was ok . here Boo Boos top beak had started to bleed where she filed it down. you have to realize mom always is working on our beak and nails and so was very surprised to see what had happened in the first place and in order for Boo Boos beak to fit properly she had to file it down to the right length which made it bleed. when mom saw the blood she became ill and thought she was going to vomit. she grabbed some flour and dipped her beak in it. then she uses a cloth and wiped the blood off, then she dipped her beak in flour again. at this point we suspected mom was putting batter on Boo Boo to eat her for dinner. mom was so upset she told dad no way was she going out for dinner when Boo Boosbeak had been bleeding. what if it started bleeding again while they were gone. dad said ok and went out and brought dinner hone from a nice local italian restaurant. that night mom let Boo Boo chase a live cricket around and she did catch it and ate it all up. i was fairly upset that Boo Boo got so much attention. mom gave me a cashew to cheer me up. Boo Boo is still mad at mom but acting a little better and eating with her beak. mom says withBoo Boos beak so short she really look like a baby bird now.
mom also says i am looking better and better and my beak is looking better and better also. i am keeping my weight at 474 grams which is good for me. mom says my eyes also have a sparkle to them which she hasn't seen for a few years.


love Cori

  Hi Gus
I am apologizing for not coming by to see you yesterday!Mom was sitting down and getting our blogs done when all of a sudden we kept getting the Squawkatiel and then the 404 page not found and the runtime error and we couldn't get on BC so Mom thought that if she logged out and then logged back in again she could get us back on but that only made it worse,we couldn't get on period and this happened from late morning to the rest of the day and night,so here we are trying to catch up where we rudely got dumped.Mom has been having BC problems all week long and it just culminated yesterday when we got shut down entirely!
Its a dark,dismal,dreary pouring rainy day here but the temperatures are warm at 59 and supposedly going up to 61.Its not cold but having no sun and warm weather just doesn't cut it for us!Where is the bright sunshine?
It must be so frustrating to be in bed and keep hearing your sweet daddy cracking all those nuts within earshot of where you are trying to sleep!At least he will share with you!My daddy makes me and my baby fister Candida popcorn whenever he decides he's going to want it!Of course he gives us some without the butter and salt!You are right about those nuts being so hard to crack open,I won't even try with my beak,they just might take my whole beak with it!Please give your poor Mom a warm hug from my Mom and lots of wing hugs from me to help make her feel better and not hurt so much,that's not good for her to be in such pain like that and having to do the laundry its good she put it in the dryer to save her the stress of stretching with the clothesline!
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 green ekkie friend,Loving you always and forever,Dixie

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