  Hi Gus
Good news! The ice maker was just jammed, and it is working perfectly again. Good thing with this heat wave. I need those ice chips in my water bowl.

Well, the new Saturday schedule doesn't include a grocery run with Mom and Dad anymore, and it does include a trip to the gym. Phooey! However since the zumba class is not until 12:30 (Mom has to get there an hour early to get her spot in line though!) Mom had plenty of time to lure me into my carrier for a sunbath. It still took until 10:30, and yes there was a small piece of tater chip involved and a some very sneaky moves on Mom's part. However I enjoyed it once we got out there.

And after Mom got home and showered (it was REALLY necessary), I got a nice long mommy time with her. She is buried in her kindle, which is fine with me since her regular space to read it in is my room. Stupid woman forgot to eat lunch again though. However I hear there is fried chicken for dinner, and that means a thigh bone for yours truly!

Congrats to Chief Panther, and welcome to our new BOTM candidate Ms Cydney. I am sure she will have a wonderful campaign for us. I was there at midnight to peck her first vote, but there is still plenty of time for everybirdy else to vote too!

Mom will probably call your mother when she finds out for sure, just keep the week or some days of it open.
We are leaving just a short note today, to let you know everything is all right, and mom will be at the pool, finishing a novel and most likely starting another one today. Hope you are having a terrific day, getting lots of love and sunshine. Hugs, Falco

It's Sawyer.
Yesterday, mom and dad both worked at the police station. Dad had to help mom change printers because the big one she (and everybody else) uses kept jamming.
Around 6pm, dad grabbed his video camera and he and mom, and everyone else in the station watched one of the Orange County Sheriff's helicopters land in the station parking lot. The two deputies presented one of our K-9 officers with a special award for his and his dog's arrests last year. Dad got it all on tape.
Today dad has to work on the sink in his bathroom. It doesn't drain.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 89 and a low of 65.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

  Hi, Gus
We have water dish and water bottle too. Mom never got rid of the dish after she knew we use the bottle though and continues to fill it. We understand about you wanting the fresh spring water just in case. We have filtered water and we're fine with it.

Temps here dropped more and the lil bit of humidity we got didn't amount to much. With our nice breeze it was all tolerable.

Mom got called to work for a couple hours yesterday. Later she took skinsis and the grand shopping so didn't get to the farmer's market.

Gee, think our mom needs a feather trim too but hasn't gone yet. Maybe today she can do that.

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

Even though it was hot yesterday, it wasn't humid so the only time the a/c was on was when mom was fixing dinner . . . I helped her do some laundry and we played. Another day the two of us just spent together :)

Today is a different story - off the folks are going to the g'parronts . . . at least there's that great market near them so I know mom will come home with some yummy things for me ! Not tomatoes of course, those we just have to open the back door to get !

Have a great Saturday :) love to all my friends ! Cookie

Well, that wasn't too bad, you did get your good lunch. So, did mom's feathers look good? I bet she didn't go to the vet for that! At least you had a nice afternoon sitting outside with mom.
We are still in high gear around here. Mom's next project is going thru all her decorations and getting rid of a lot. ... not looking forward to that!
Today was 79 and cloudy. It rained a little and then the sun came out. By late afternoon, we had a mini t-storm with sun after. Then a little rain at dinner. Not a bad day. The parronts got a lot done with my supervision help of course. I think I deserve an extra treat for all that work!

HAPPY TGIF DAY

mom decided to take a break for a little bit and go to the nearby county pool. it was a beautiful day and not too hot but nice and sunny. when she got there they closed the pool because a doody was spotted floating in it. last week when mom decided to go to the pool just as she got there they closed it because they found someone floating in the water. mom doesn't know what happened because there was nothing in the news about it and nothing on the internet. there sure were a lot of police and ambulances called so maybe the revived the person.

This morning was another bright hot sunny morning with the highs for the day being 86,the lows of 67.At 7:00pm its 81 degrees.Mom got all the trash collected and the recyclables put in her car then she got us all up,cleaned our cages and fed us and swept our room,then took our trash out to the car.Then she got Dixie all harnessed up and got him in the car seat and then Mom and Dixie took off for Nana's.Once there,Dixie got settled in his cage in the sun room and Nana gave him a good breakfast with scrambled eggs.Mom loaded Nana's trash and recycs in Nana's car along with all of our trash and they took off for the dump,from there they went to the Thrift store to find a baby gate for Bella,so Nana can let her out more often,but there was none there,from there they went to the bank,then Roche Bros. grocery store where both Mom and Nana got a few things,then to Stop&Shop where they got a few more things that were needed and on sale.They went back to Nana's house and had a nice lunch of tuna and salad that Nana made,with Mom's chocolate zucchini bread and rum raisin ice cream for dessert.Dixie and our cousins all got some fresh fruit of apples,oranges and cranberries for our snack.Then Mom and Nana were trying to figure out how to untangle an old hockey net of skin bro's to use for a barrier for Bella but after they both worked on that and got it to work out a little,Nana decided not to use it as Bella may have gotten herself caught in the netting part of it.It was 4:00pm and Nana sent Mom and Dixie home before the traffic got too bad.When Mom finally got home,she unpacked the car and put everything away,then went to clean our cages and give us our snacks as our Dad just got home himself. Mom then made Dad leftover elbow macaroni with butter and cinnamon and sugar for dinner.They sat on the deck and we were able to all go out and join them and enjoy the last of the sunshine and watch all the wild birds coming and going from our yard.We got to stay outside and enjoy the view til around 7:00pm.
Don't you just love sitting outside with your sweet Momma and enjoying the beautiful sunshine?Hopefully Mom will be home with us tomorrow and Sunday.It sure was sweet for your daddy to keep your water bottle and water dish!Nana gives my cousin spring water also,we have good water here in the Mills and we get that and sometimes Mom will give us bottled or filtered water!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft birdie kisses!Loving you always and forever,my sweet friend,Love,Dixie

  Hi Gus
No sunbath today, but it is the sun's fault, not Mom or me. Mom leaves for the gym at 9:30 on Fridays and it was already 78 degrees out there. By the time she got home it was cooking. So she jumped in the shower really quick, and then came to sit with me before leaving for her therapeutic arthritis massage. That was supposed to be my sun bath time, but I will take mommy time anywhere.

Our new fridge (bought on 2/16/15) has already got problems. The ice maker stopped working last night, and in this weather you need ice!! Mom called Sears Service, and the lady had her pull out the ice caddy and dig around up above it. There were 4 cubes stuck in there, and Mom didn't think that could be it. However the lady on the phone said give it a couple of hours, and if it didn't start making ice to call back and schedule a free service call. Guess they do their best not to send anyone out if they can help it, and who knows it just might work.

  Hi Gus
Mom heard from Aunt Rose that they will be here the week of Aug. 30 and we are hoping your mom can join us for at least an activity or 2.
Mom is just watering with the watering can, she decided not to take any chances.
I love my new pic, Aunt Rose made it for me for guessing the theme on Name That Tune.
Today mom was assigned the Avian Nursery with 3 other people. It was great, because they had all the cages cleaned before mom left! That rarely happens in summer, when everything is full. Mom cleaned and fed robins (lots), an oriole, a couple of mockingbirds, a few crows, some ducklings, a killdeer, and some jays. She loves that place, there are always birds in there she hasn't seen up close before. Today it was the oriole.
When she went to the pool, they weren't letting anyone in the water because there was no chlorine in there. It took a couple of hours to get the pump fixed and the level where it should be, so mom only got in the water for a few minutes before it was time to come home and blog.
I hope you are having a wonderful day, getting some sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hello Gus~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's going to be a billion degrees here again!hahahahahaha One month of summer to go and hopefully my rain will come back!
Russell Wilson is going to be a Seahawk until 2019!!! I guess he knew how much this 12th bird wanted him to stay! He is going to get a gazillion dollars! Well close to that I think! Now we have to worry about whether or not they have the money to keep the other players! I'm sure they make a whole bunch of money on merchandise so I think they can afford it! The players jersey's are 100$ each and this state is filled with people wearing them!
Training camp opens today and Taima is there! I can't wait to see the pictures! I follow him on Facebook and love to see all his pictures. Wish I had a wing span like that!!!
So you seem to be training your dad correctly! Mine does pretty good when he is home. Since he is not around all the time, he likes to get me out of my night cage in the morning when he is here! Mom has to vanish or I will bite him! Dad thinks I go quietly with him because I know he is going to take me to where mom is!
Have a great day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love from Seahawk Sugar!

Navajo code talkers conclusion
Recruiters visited the Navajo rez and selected 30 code talkers. One dropped out so 29 started the program.Many of these were young Navajos who never left the Rez,making the transition to military life more difficult.Yet they perserved.
They would work night and day helpingto create the code.Once the first 29 were finished,two remained behind to train future Navajo code talkers.
The program was successful.The entire Navajo Nation had 50,000
people.By the end of the war 420 Navajo men worked as code talkers !!!

I salute all the Navajo Code talkers and our U.S soldiers. Please say a prayer for our military. They work hard to protect all of us and our freedom !!!

Much love to all of you

It's Sawyer.
Not a lot got done yesterday. After mom and dad finished feeding us they started working on dinner. They put pork shoulder strips into the Ninja and seared it. Then added garlic and onions and BBQ sauce and let it slow cook for hours. It must have been good because there's none left.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 87 and a low of 66. Mom and dad will both be working at the police station. There's a special presentation at the police station tonight. One of the Orange Co. Sheriff's helicopters is going to land in the parking lot and then one of the La Habra K9 officers will receive a special award for catching a really nasty bad guy. Dad is going to video tape the event for the department.
Hope your day is good.

Temps went down a tad more yesterday so currently in the upper 80s and should hopefully fall more by next week. Might get humid today so know that won't feel great but at least it won't be when 90+. Too bad no rain for you but at least some areas received it.

That is always good if you can be out if that's your normal. Good of your dad to change your water. That should be an easy thing to do.

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

The humidity is gone ! Even though it's still supposed to hit 90, it shouldn't be too bad . . . yesterday seemed the worst of all until it got dark as midnight around 4:00 and the thunderboomers barreled through dumping oodles of rain on the house -

Busy weekend coming up - tomorrow is visit the g'parronts day and then mom promised my Laura to go out on Sunday shopping a bit . . . luckily mom doesn't need anything so she'll be the barometer for Laura's wallet ! har har har !

This morning was another hot bright sunny morning with the highs for the day at 85 and the lows of 70 for tonight,right now its 81 and partially cloudy with a breeze out there.Mom got us all up,fed and cleaned our cages,and swept the floor.Then she scrubbed both bathrooms and was contemplating on vacuuming the house but decided against it for today as its too hot to be running a hot vacuum only to make the house even hotter.Mom collected the trash for tomorrow and put the recyclables in her car.It doesn't look like we'll be getting outside again today because of the high humidity.Maybe tonight for dinner when the sun is getting ready to leave the sky and its a lot cooler we can join the parronts for dinner on the deck.Its a very uneventful day here and Mom and all of us are happy for that.Lately having a nice quiet boring day with Mom while she works around the house it quite alright with us!Its more than alright with Mom,she looks forward to these kinds of days!
What an awesome dad you have to make sure you have clean water when your sweet Momma is gone.We are still waiting on the rain to come here but it never did so far.They keep talking rain but we only get a few drops here and there and they dry up a few minutes later!It was so good that you didn't have to stay in lock down the whole time your sweet Mom was gone.Dad's are good for that reason!

  Hi Gus
Yay! I got outside for a sunbath, and Mom was just about to give up on me too! She had tried putting a piece of my favorite oatmeal cookie on the fork of the perch like she did with the tater chip. (I am not allowed more than one little piece of a chip per week.) Well, Mom was reading her kindle, glanced up, and I was in there chomping away. She got up verrry slowly and closed the lid on my carrier. Then we went outside and had a very nice sunbath, Mom fed pine sawdust to Ms Gardenia Tree (I know, sounds yucky, huh?) and tried to give me nutriberries but I wasn't interested. I just sat quietly enjoying the view, and after 45 minutes we came back inside. And guess what? I sat in my carrier for another 10 minutes after we came in even though the top door was open. Go figure.

Then Mom read her emails and I sat quietly on her shoulder and read them too. She gets a lot of stuff about the environment, and she answers every one and signs all the petitions. She really loves Mother Earth.

After that out came the nasty sucking machine and the mop for the kitchen. I don't know who hates it more, me or Mom, but my bet is on me. At least she only uses the non-electric sweeper in my room. That vacuum is scary!

Only today and tomorrow for Panther's campaign, so don't forget to get over to his page and peck his vote button! He has shared a very wonderful view of the life of the Northern Cheyenne, and we need to show our appreciation. A little wish to the universe for a speedy recovery for Aunt Staci wouldn't be amiss either.

  Hello Gus~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I think it's hot just about everywhere now. I think we are going to break the record for the most days over 90 today. I guess they have been keeping the record for about 120 years.
Seahawks training camp starts tomorrow and Taima the hawk is coming over for a meet and greet! Wish we could get up there to see him but mom has to work the whole weekend. Everyone is very excited for football to start again. It seems rather dull around here without it!
We are finishing up laundry and getting things ready for mom to go back to work tonight. It's not much fun but I do have some new toys to keep me occupied!
I hope your day is just fabulous!! Stay cool and enjoy it!

  Hey Gus
Happy Thursday !!! Did I throw you off with those questions? It was all in fun and games heehee! I did say I was going to surprise you...Raffi got every answer right !!! Congrats Raffi!

In honor of our U.S military...Today I'm going to talk about Navajo Code Talkers. They are from the Navajo nation...

In U.S history the things that happened to us Native Americans were tragic.Invaders and settlers took most of our lands and misunderstood our culture and killed us in the thousands.
Then during World War 2 ,the U.S goverment needed our Navajo Brothers to help.And though they suffered greatly from this same government our Navajo brothers proudly answered the call to duty.

Communication is very essential during any War.
Codes were often used,but broken.In 1942 a man named Philip Jonhston thought of a code that would be un breakable by the enemy.
A code based on the Navajo Language...

Be here for the conclusion tommorow...
Thank you for your votes
Love
Panther

Mom and dad went to the movies and saw Entourage. Dad didn't care for it. He said it was dumb.
We had a power outage last night. It lasted about 3 hours. Now poor dad has to reset everything. So this will be a short blog today.
The high will be 89 and the low will be 66, with a chance of rain.
Hope your day is fun.

Today is a beautiful summer day, but it didn't rain like it was supposed to this morning. Mom will be at the pool today again, then out to dinner with her sis. Sometime today is cage cleaning, too, as garbage pickup is tomorrow and mom noticed some raggedy looking toys here and there.

Great news, all of dad's vitals are better than ever, and on top of that, our temps and humidity are lower, we are loving it! Queen Angel Christy sends her thanks and love from Heaven! We are lucky, we get to feel her genuine love every day, and dad kneels by her grave sight, every day the weather permits and he can walk without falling! We want to offer our best prayers for aunt Staci Bigfoot, and our dear Cappy's sweet momma Terry, speedy recovery to you dear BC lady friends!

  Hi Gus
Awwwww Gus Gus you are soooo precious to give your mom extra kisses. I know she appreciates them! Were you the one that liked the parrot pockets? Are you a big leather chewer? Mom is thinking Cappy would need the THICK pockets, especially the way he can go through things with that beak. Mom is going to get a few of those hopping that we all like them. If nothing else hiding NUTS in them will get all of our attentions lol. Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.
Love Dory

  Hi, Gus
We had the spare the air yesterday but today is okay since got slightly cooler temps and a bit of a breeze. Today should be a bit cooler and hope it drops into the 80s but humidity is forecast for today or tomorrow. As you know that will make any temp seem warmer.

That is good you got the bath and sunbath early since later would be too hot. The parronts did all their errands early before got too hot.

We're sure your mom appreciates having the eggstra kisses. Though we're also sure she wouldn't mind having one each night no matter what.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hey buddy !
YUCK ! Last night was a cold sandwich supper in our house - I got the first bite of cherry tomatoe right out of the back yard :) Yum !

Daddy was driving down our road yesterday and got worried cause there was a small bird in the middle of the road. He pulled over and saw it was a blue jay fledgling . . . he walked over to urge it back to the grass so it wouldn't get hit. Then he sat in the car (in the heat with the engine off so it wouldn't be spooked) for almost half an hour to make sure its mommy was around . . .

Hope you get outside :) love Cookie

Come visit me, Cookie enjoying summer, BC Library Now Open & Fly with the angels my Sally.

  Hi Gus
That is so funny. When I'm in a mood and won't give mom a g'nite kiss, the next night I want to give her bunches!
It was only 88 today. We didn't see the sun until afternoon. There was a lot of coming and going today but, mom remembered and cleaned my condo and my beautiful chewed wood collection! I'll have to start over.
Hugs
Chyna

Come visit me, Derby Farms, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  HI GUS!!!
The resident black bear on this gated community where we live is certainly not afraid of humans..In fact he saw Mom & Dad on the porch looking at him and he just laid down on the lawn and had the bird feeder in his paws.....Glad that you really like the parrot pockets and actually it sounds you enjoy working to get the nuts out so you can st them..Mom is going to check that site out because Baby Girl loves getting her rice crispy cereal out of a toy in her cage..Some hot & humid weather we are having here..They say tomorrow some showers and after they leave the area the humidity will be lower although the temps will still be in the higher 80's..Hope you are having a nice day & evening...Stay cool..Pecked a V4U..Lots of birdie wing hugs to you my dear friend...Love you, Cydney :o)
