  Hi Gus,
I want to thank you for your votes for me in the quest to get my BOTM Badge.

It's just not fair as I had worked so hard through out the whole month campaigning. Only to find out that the BC was not fixing the site.

Perhaps with every birdies help me and the others like Kacey and Mikey will get our recognition like we should have.

A big Mahalo to everyone for their love and support. The things we birdies hafta do to get things done.

Here's a vote for you as well my sweet friend.

Love,

Laka

  Hi Gus
Thanks for the vote!
Today is pretty cloudy looking, and it's cool out there, in the 50s right now, and only going into the low 60s. Mom will get some laundry done, and may change out some of her winter things for more spring and summer things. At least the quilt on the bed is finally changed to the summer weight one.
Today is Falco's vet appointment, and it's at 2:40, which should get mom back on the road well before traffic starts. Mom is hoping only one or 2 more, and she'll be okay. The vet hasn't really done anything the past 2 times, except look at her booboo and see that it's healing so we're not expecting anything else today. Mom is resigned to Falco wearing this collar until the feathers are more grown in, too. She seems to be used to it now, though.
I hope you are having a great beautiful spring day today, getting lots of sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Yup, that Lola is a hoot! Mom told her mom to be real careful with her between the dogs and cats. Mom keeps spraying Baldrick with that FeatherIn spray to help his bald spot grow in (I keep preening Baldrick bald) Then I had this thing where I ran around on the floor and under everybirdy's condo's yesterday. Mom was not happy with that but even though I moved to the opposite side of the room, I still found my way home! Mom just shakes her head at me. What is that little mailbox? Is that for your letters?

  Hi handsome Gus & pretty Cheech-from Jen & Christy
We have another rainy and overcast day, it is getting very old! For the most part all of dad's meeting went well, but he will need to adjust some of his meds, especially the diuretics, the smaller amount was causing excess water retention and edema! Another appointment today and our nurse comes tomorrow, she is a welcome guest, always so pleasant and caring! Dad plans to rest as much as possible today, they ran him ragged yesterday! Have a great ToosDay, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow BC friends...

Forever love from Jenny, Ms LaLo, Ziggy, Angel Christy, & our tired daddy

  hey buddy - hope everything there is OK
Tuesday is no longer mom's humpday ! Now it's a Wednesday just like the rest of the world :) She and her co-coach cleaned up the stage after school yesterday and put all the props and sets away. When she got home we played peek a bird ! It is a favorite game of mine - we play it like hide and seek - I hide under a heap of paper or in a box and mom calls for me . . . and calls and calls . . . till I holler PEEK-A-BIRD !

We are in the middle of a dreary rainy week - on and off all week long. The sun came out just long enough last night for the parronts to go take a walk by the river while I enjoyed my nutriberri. After some skritching time, it was night-night. Now I've got today to look forward to :)

What did you and aunt Jinky do yesterday ? I hope you had a good time with maybe even a sunbath ! love Cookie

  Hi Gus
How's it going?
Today was pretty boring ... laundry day. I faked being so tired that I had to rest. When mom wasn't looking, I was busy chewing up a wood toy. After she was finished, I had all the energy of a sugar buzz .... hehehe. Yes, I was chatty and playful and charming of course. Tomorrow, mom wants to paint her closet ... I feel a relapse coming on ....

  Hello Gus~
I hope you had a great day! I didn't think I was going to get any notes done today at all! We had tons to do and mom still has a few more things to do but she is going to wait until we are all in bed! I don't know why? I thought all the screaming I did was a real help.
The complex is doing a HUD inspection tomorrow. I guess they are trying to get certified so they can rent to low income people and get subsidized by the government. I imagine they lost a lot of people when they raised the rent so high. They could have just lowered it and maybe people wouldn't have moved.
We had to clean up the house and the storage room. Dad had lots of junk in there and it took a while. There is still stuff to do but like I said, mom is waiting for us to go to bed.
The construction guys showed up a little while ago. They are blocking off the right 2 lanes on my side of the street. Guess it's going to be another noisy night. They did take a 3 day weekend so I am thankful for that. I think they will be done in a few more days.
Have a lovely evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Heya, Gus!
Yeah, I get revved up in the afternoon, especially if the sun is out. (Otherwise it is nap time on Mom!) But I don't fly. I just make myself very busy, and bother Mom to pay attention to me. She says like she ignores me--never!

Mom's dental appt. went well today. The insurance still is up in the air. Mom thought she had 50% coverage, but she doesn't. She has 25%, but she is glad to have the insurance. Next January it will bump up to 50% across the board for the major stuff, which is okay.

Mom stopped by the office today to make sure Frank said something about the cabinet. Not sure when it will be taken care of. We are hoping soon (before the bottom totally disintegrates!) We will have to wait until the owner comes, which should be relatively soon. They do a good job on the buildings--or Mom would not have stayed here 18 years.

Have a super rest of the night! Wing hugs coming atcha!

  HI GUS!!!
Was not on blogging all weekend..Friday was Mom's birthday and skin brother called and told her he would be coming for the weekend and bringing his dog with him..Dandan(the dog)is a super hyper dog...Guess because he is still quite young...But the most exciting thing was skin brother bought Mom a beautiful baby Sun Conure...It happened to be a parrot Mom always wanted...Now she has one...Of course it is so much different then us Cockatiels...So Mom is learning all about it..Do not know what sex it is yet...So she named it Baby BG(Boy/Girl).....
Guess your Mom's feathers look nice now...Sure hope yours start coming in like they should and you do not bite at them anymore...Because you are quite a handsome Eclectus..
Hopefully all is going okay with your Mom and getting her new cards...
The brush fire that was burning through 2 counties here and out of control is now 100% contained...We did have rain most of the weekend and it was a big help...
Have a great Monday....Pecked a V4U...Many birdie wing hugs to youmy dear friend...Love you, Cydney:o)

  Hi Gus
This morning was a dark drizzly day with the highs for the day of 55 the lows of 45 and right now its 49.After Mom got dad off to work she got our bean mix, eggs and angel hair pasta ready and Dixie's antibiotics ready.Then she got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and we got our bean mix.Then she washed the kitchen and bathroom floor and scrubbed out our water bottles.It got really dark here and then it really started pouring down heavy.We are supposed to get this kind of weather for the rest of the week.What happened to our May sunshine and warm temperatures?We can't wait to get outside and go for stroller rides or sit in the sunshine on the deck getting a nice soaking shower to dry off in the sunshine and Mom wants to be able to put her wash outside and not have to keep using the dryer!UggggH!Other than Mom working on chores all day today its going to be another wonderful boring day here for us!Nothing of interest going on at all!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for my friend!Loving you always and forever,your friend,Dixie

  Hi Gus
Well, Mom went to the gym this morning, and this time she wasn't back home in 15 minutes! Yep, she made it thru the warm up just fine, so Becky said she was ready for a session. Of course, then she made it a balance work out rather than anything more strenuous, but Mom still got a bit sweaty. They chatted between sets so Mom wouldn't get too worn out as well. Becky said she needs to be careful till she builds herself back up, so Mom didn't stay for zumba. She is thinking she will try it on Wednesday afternoon though.

And yay!! I got a sun bath today! It got up to 74 today, and since Mom got me outside right at noon it was warm but not too hot at all. We both sat in the sun for 30 minutes, but then I got antsy so we went back inside. Oh! And I climbed right into my carrier to go out there with no argument.

Mom was so pleased with me that she shared a hot pastrami and provolone on rye (or half of one anyway) for lunch, and then we had a peanut butter cookie for a treat afterwards. I sure do love those things! Yum!!

  Hi Gus
I bet mom had a fun day shopping with the girls! My mom used to enjoy that a lot.
Mom talked to about 50 people yesterday about the pterosaurs hanging from the overlook. She spelled it wrong yesterday, for anyone looking them up: It's cycnoramphus, with a y not an i. They have weird mouths, tiny teeth only in the front. There were lots of people using the elevator and the stairs on the overlook, just not that many stopping to look at what mom had to show. She even had a cast of a pterodactyl for folks to touch.
After the museum, mom went to Barnes and Noble to use the coupons she had. As usual, it didn't take her long to find things to read.
Today at the center mom had the avian nursery to do. There are some nestlings there who had to eat every 30 minutes, and she had the timer for them, too. The nestlings were a little fuzzy finch, a Carolina wren, and a baby robin. There were also several mallards in there, 10, at least, in 2 cages with decoy moms and mirrors. There was a baby goose with a decoy mom in its cage, too. There were the usual mourning doves and pigeons, as well as an eastern screech owl, a cardinal, and a pileated woodpecker. Mom also set up a cage for a grey catbird, but didn't see it, as it was still in the treatment room.
She was a few minutes late getting out today; that was a lot of birds, with the baby feedings thrown in.
Now, mom is home with us, hoping to finish a book today, and maybe get some laundry going. Tomorrow I have a follow up appointment with my vet, and she is seeing me before rush hour starts, YAY! She's going to see more than 2 feathers growing in, too. I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Happy Monday. Dad is packing and running around the house setting up "bird-care"stations.
He's nervous about leaving me w Aunt Kathy - they were both miserable to each other last time.
Dad will be gone 5 days, and is praying we all survive the duration.

  Hi, Gus
Figured that since you chew feathers in the same spot that must be just a nervous habit type of thing as doubt you could really be stressed there with so much love, attention and out of birdhouse time you get.

Be good for the grand to go the the event and good to have a dress can use for more than one occasion.

Temps staying warm around here. At least the breeze is cool though the a/c at mom work still not optimum.

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

Hopefully, despite the cold rain here, life will return to normal now that mom's drama club is done till November . . . Yesterday I squawked for an early night-night since it was so dark and dismal - that was OK though, since I think mom was ready too ! She and dad did pick up my peas and string beans earlier, and some more calculator paper for my art projects, so I'll be ready for today.

So aunt Jinky went off again ? Her feathers might need to be clipped more ! love Cookie

That sounds like a greyt day ... shopping. That is my mom's favorite thing to do ... after going to the beach. You should post of pic of the grand in her pretty dress.
Mom has a bunch of stuff to do this week ... hope she gets it done!
It was a very eggciting Sunday for me. My cardinal friend came right up to the screen door to talk with me. Mom & I spoke back to him and he kept talking. I told him to visit anytime.

Mom can't understand why the kids these days don't want to dress up nice!Mom used to keep the skin sibs dressed up nice when they were little and even skin bro loved clothes and loved to get his clothes set out for preschool everyday.Now they both dress like slobs and won't wear anything nice when the family goes out to eat or anything.That's a good idea that the one grand can use the same dress for her pitching coach's wedding in October!That was really awesome that Aunt Jinky got to get those jeans for your dad in his size and brand.My dad gets his jeans from the uniform company where he works and they clean them to so Mom doesn't have to wash his work pants or shirts etc anymore!When they change uniform companies they get to buy the jeans they've been wearing!How awesome that your dad stayed home with you and served you your fruit bowl!I'm with you I always am so happy to see my Mom come home!
This morning was a dull,dismal,dark,dreary day here.The highs for the day will be 53 the lows of 41 and its 47 right now and cold and raining.Mom got us all up this morning and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us our bean mix with eggs!We all just love eggs!Then she got dad his breakfast of raisin toast and coffee and then made dad his peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the work week and then the two skin sibs called her and drove her crazy.Mom managed to get a wash in the washer and was going to hang the sheets out on the line when she forgot to get the laundry out of the washer and dad told her it has already started to rain.Mom is so tired of going back and forth with both skin sibs about the apartment next door to skin sis.Skin bro went up to meet with the landlord and at the last minute backed out of it.He later found two places that included everything and he's got an appointment for one tomorrow at 5:30pm and the other one you have to go in person to look at.They don't take phone calls,Mom is hoping that he'll take one of them at least and get this thing over with once and for all.Mom thought that she would have a nice quiet day here but skin sis still is coming over to do her laundry and bring our frother and fister with her.Mom is hoping that she'll take more of her stuff back with her.She was hoping that skin bro was going to come and take all his box springs and mattresses out this weekend but now Mom's gotta wait longer for that to happen.It looks like Mom will have to wait til tomorrow to have a nice quiet day.Mom hasn't gotten much done today at all except be on the phone with both skin sibs.Skin sis came over and did her laundry and Mom clipped Peepers flight feathers.Mom made lunch for everyone,skin sis and Mom had broccoli,onions,diced tomatoes and parmesan cheese with angel hair noodles.Then Mom made lime jello for dessert.Dad had soup and crackers.Skin sis finished her laundry while Mom cleaned up the kitchen.Mom made a tuna noodle casserole,but everyone had a very late lunch and no one is interested in eating dinner so

  Heya, Gus!
Mom used to get perms. Until she got one that made her hair like a brillo pad. Not sure what happened, but she decided to cut it shorter and let it grow straight. It is humid here in summer, and Mom says that her hair curls in the humidity! Go figure.

We had another dismal, grey day here today. We did get to 50, but it only felt like the low 40's due to the wind. Damp. Rain on and off. Guess you get the general gist of things--another blah day outside.

However, Mom and I want to wish you all a very happy Lei Day! We love Hawaii, which most of you know, so we always look forward to Lei Day as it means May is here, and we love May! Derby, Mom's Day, Mom's BD, my adoption day...yeah, May is our month.

Not much else going on here. Mom is off to the dentist tomorrow morning. She hopes that she is home when and if the building owner comes by to see the icky cabinet. Grandpa says that they won't replace the cabinet, but Mom hopes he is wrong. We would be happy without a dishwasher, but if they give us a new one, we probably will have to run it every week. Ugh.

Wing hugs coming your way!

  Hi Gus
Very dapper derby! Brings out the best in you! So much has been happening since my last blog. First, Lola, the reescue ekkie that you and your mom helped out with diet and care along with Cindy and Susan, is doing eggstremely well, chasing the dogs, the cats and one contractor in the house. All in all she is a sweetheart, always walking over to mom when she visits and perching on her. I had to move along with Baldrick. We got 2 tiels back that we adopted out 5 years ago. The poor lady developed birdkeeper's lung and had to be put on oxygen and prednisone. So after 30 days of quarantine, they are now in the Cage Owners Association here because no one wants 2 tiels bonded to each other who do not care for humans. So Baldrick and I moved over to the Graceland side of the room and Carter and Teal'c moved in next to Gracie and Sunny the tiels. Now when mom does room service, she pulls Carter abd Teal'c condo into the middle of the floor so Josh doesn;t had any more wise guy conure issues (not that our fister and frother would do that) and he can't go over and annoy them. We do try to educate mom on the matters. In the meanwhile, Moggie has taught the new tiels how to wolf whistle so all is good. Missed you bunches, buddy! Love and winghugs, Charlie

Well, Mom abandoned me right after breakfast to go put gas in Gloria before the cheap station got too busy. And then she went grocery shopping with Dad, but I forgive her for that since she brings home my sugar snap peas, nanners and grapes. However she also brought home a salad for lunch, and although she expected me to enjoy sharing it since it had corn and beans (Southwestern style chicken salad), I was not really impressed. Amazingly I did eat a tiny piece of lettuce, but the second one I picked up ended up on Mom's shoulder.

And although it is warm enough for a sunbath today, Dad suggested Mom wait one more day before sitting out in the sun to make sure the antibiotic is out of her system completely. A sunburn right now would not be fun, eggspecially since she is pretty sure she will be good to go for the gym tomorrow (no zumba yet, though). I wouldn't cooperate about getting into my carrier anyway, so Mom took that as a sign that a sunbath was not a good idea today.

BooBoo had a greyt idea: since we do not have a candidate for BOTM this month, why don't we all vote for Laka again so she can get her BOTM plaque from BC. In case you didn't know, apparently BC has started doing that again, and Grey Bird actually received his plaque. Laka and Kacey & Mikey should deserve the same recognition.

  Hi Gus
It's Sawyer.
Dad finally worked on the front lawn and at least part of it looks better. He's going to try to get more done today. Not sure how much because their friends from Colorado will be here today. Not sure how much we'll be on the BC this next week. It depends on how busy mom and dad are with their friends.
Mom made homemade gumbo last night. Sure did smell good but dad said we couldn't have any because it was too spicy for us. Hey, we like spicy!
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 76 and a low of 53.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

  Hi Gus
You're too kind, but I do hope it comes off soon.
Mom went with her niece to see the opera last night. The scenery was really cute, it looked very 2 dimensional, and was mostly drawn onto a white background, so looked very childlike and unsophisticated. The music was typical Stravinsky, mom liked it a lot. In fact, she enjoyed the music more than the singing, because the music was playful in spots. The cast was very well matched vocally, and the chorus did a bang up job! For an opera written in 1951, it was pretty good. Mom doesn't usually like contemporary works like that. They had dinner at Nicky's Thai Kitchen before the performance, too.
Today mom has to do a 3 hour spotlight at the new pterosaurs in Dinosaur hall. They are cicnorhamphus, and they are hanging above the hall. Mom thinks she'll be on the second floor balcony, so people can see them better. They are pretty cool pterosaurs, have beaks that indicate they were filter feeders, something like flamingos.
I think after the museum, mom will head to Barnes and Noble, then come home. I hope you are having a good day there. It's gloomy here, and raining off and on. Get lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

  Hi, Gus
Guess if didn't hear any sounds from outside people don't always notice things. Wonder if the parronts might've noticed if they'd been near the window.

Good you don't chew too many of the feathers but know probably a habit by now and not necessarily due to any stress.

Was well into the 70s here but not bad when outside since there was a cool breeze. Inside at mom's work it was a tad overly warm. Today supposed to get into the low 80s so not looking forward to that.

Mom just renewed her license and they are using the same pic. Good to not go in and hope still look somewhat like the old pic, heehee.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Gus !
Rain here in NY today . . . but that's OK, cause there's not a lot going on. Mom is recovering from last night. The show went really well - only one little actor missed a line, and it wasn't an important one. The cast party was LOUD. She was even able to eat a slice of pizza ! ! Thank goodness in junior high there's only one performance unlike high schools which do two full weekends. Don't think she could do that ! Me either - I do love my daddy, but he's not a very good tucker inner and mom had to fix my blankee when she got home about half past midnight.

She will go out later to get me my fresh veggies - yesterday she got hers and daddy's foods. I'll try to be a good boy and let her rest . . . have a great day - hopefully aunt Jinky finished what needed doing and today can be all yours ! love Cookie

Hello dear friends-
Dad's making preparations to leave on his short vacation. Of course it will not seem short for either of us.
-
Aunt Kathy, the Bird-Sitter, will be lookin in on me, and my dear Uncle Geno promises to visit as well, so they will help pass the time....but nothing's the same without Dad. It's gonna be tough.
I have Dad trained for when it's time for fruit, when it's time for seeds. . .
Dad keeps telling me to be nice - last time I was so sad and angry and everything else that I was miserable to the bird-sitter . . . .
= = =
Saturday was a nice day. Dad and Uncle Geno took a short drive into the country.
Today is rainy and Dad will be at the movies in the afternoon.
....
~Wings Up~

Come visit me, Mario Adler & Flitzer w Uncle Geno.

  Hi Gus
Glad the pineapple info helped you out. Good luck and let me know if it works.
I think I will get a bath tomorrow. It's hot here so, I don't have to worry about being cold. It's still 90 and the pool water is high 80's.
So did your mom get all her dup cards yet? They will probably give her new numbers on credit cards.
I enjoyed a breakfast of scrambled eggs and oj. Then it was beach/ocean day for the parronts. After they came home, we enjoyed the pool and lanai. Tomorrow starts Kentucky Derby Week ... so eggciting!
Hugs
Chyna

  Hi Gus!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight is the last night! I am so excited! Mom was finally able to pick up all of the bird toy parts that have been scattered around her room for the past month. She was happy about that! Haha! Tonight we are making a toy that looks like bird. You will need,

- Cardboard
- Coffee filters
- Finger traps
- Beads
- Little bird toy trinket pieces
- Safe stringing material
- OPTIONAL white paper

Take a large piece of cardboard and cut out a nice sized bird head and body. Once you have the body cut out, take a piece of string and knot the bottom, then poke a hole in sorta in the middle of your cutouts body, but a little lower. String your string through the hole, with the knot being on the back side. Take some coffee filters, and cut the sides into strips and poke holes in the middles. String those on like you would for a puff, one facing down, one facing up, and so on, until it is a nice sized puff on the body. String on a bead and knot it. Now poke a hole in the middle of the cutout near the bottom. Take a piece of string and knot them bottom, then string it through the hole with the knot on the front side (you won't see it, it will be under the puff). Take three finger traps, and string those on. Then string on a bead and knot it tight. Once they are tied, you can stick them out in different directions like a tail. For the head, it will be different for everyone depending on what kind of bird you want it to look like. We did a Green Cheek Conure. If you want an eye ring, cut out a small oval and poke a hole in the middle. Then to attach the eye, poke a hole on the cutout where you want it to be, take a piece of string and tie a knot at the bottom, string it through, and then string on the paper, and then a dark bead. Then knot it. To put on markings, you will do the same thing with the holes and string. Just add them (beads and random toy pieces) however you'd like in what ever colors you want. To make it so that you can hang it, you can make a loop, make a small hole in the cutouts head, and then string the loop through. Or, you can tie a bagel to a piece of string, then make a small hole in the cutout under the puff and string it through the hole with the bagel on the back side. Then knot it. You can then attach it by sticking the bagel through the cage bars and turning it the opposite way so that it stays.

I will post a picture of both the front and back sides of this toy in my gallery.

Thank you SO much for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

HI GUS, SO YOUR MOM GOT HER FEATHERS CUT THEN SHE CURLED THEM? MY MOM JUST LIKES SHORT STRAIGHT FEATHERS.

WELL AT LEAST YOU HAD A GOOD DAY. IT WAS A RAINY DAY HERE, NO SUN AND ON THE COOLER SIDE, IN THE LOW 50'S. I DECIDED TO TAKE A BATH IN MY WATER DISH AFTER DINNER. SO MOM HAD TO CLEAN MY CAGE AND GIVE ME CLEAN WATER.

G-MA IS HOME AND MOM HAD TO UNPACK HER BAG AND PUT AWAY ALL HER CLOTHES. G-MA WAS BAD AS SHE BOUGHT GIFTS THAT MOM TOLD HER NOT TO BUY. MOM DOESN'T NEED ANY MORE T-SHIRTS AS SHE HAS LOTS OF NICE BIRDIE ONES.

WE HOPE TO HAVE A NICE RELAXING SUNDAY EVEN THOUGH IT WILL BE RAINING ALL DAY.

  Hi Gus
Don't you just love it when our Mom's stay home with us?I do hope that your sweet Mom does get to stay home with you and that feather trim works to keep her home with you.My Mom does the same thing whenever she uses anything stinky or strong,she keeps us locked in our room and won't let us out unless the stinky stuff is all gone!It was good that your daddy was home to let you out of your condo so you didn't have to wait too long for your Mom to get done.I can't wait to have a shower again,my Mom is too scared that I'll get a chill,my baby fister Candida went to the kitchen sink again and pushed Mom's dishes away and hogged the whole faucet laying her head under the running cold water.She was soaking wet and flew onto my daddy's shoulder and cuddled up to his neck and preened his hair and got as close to him as she could.I sure do hope you are being nice to your feathers and not pulling them out.You've got to leave your downy feathers alone.Poor Aunt Jinky having to get all those duplicates of everything but now at least she'll have a copy if she should lose anything.
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 53 the lows of 40 and its 53 right now.We were all rudely awakened early this morning with the sounds of trucks and banging and lots of noise.The neighbor across the street from us is having her whole paved driveway dug up right down to the dirt,the trucks are scraping and loading all the busted up pieces of pavement into trucks that will get rid of them and there's back hoes and roller trucks and guys out there with axes chopping up the dirt etc.Just Thursday she had a big scrub pine that reached up to the sky taken down.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and gave us our bean mix.Nana sent us home with some eggs and Mom mixed that into our bean mix.She got dad his breakfast of blueberry waffles and coffee and then she started on some chores she didn't do since she was gone all day yesterday and too tired to do them when she came home.Dad was waiting on skin bro to contact him to help him move today to the apartment next to skin sis.So far we haven't heard a thing.So far both Mom and dad will be home today with us and its another uneventful day and who can complain about that?Not Us!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for my friend!Loving you always and forever,your friend,Dixie

  Heya, Gus!
Glad you got your bath and blow dry today. I think maybe your Mom's feather trim is gonna keep her at home. Why does she want to have curls? Hard to fly with curly feathers, doncha think?

Rainy day here. And super damp and icky. And gusty winds, too. 42 now, but feels like 35. Mom says she feels like it is November again. I got to snuggle up with Mom, so I am good. At least we have some heat here. Mom says she is happy about that. Just feels icky!

Wing hugs coming your way!
Your buddy,
Kaji
