  Day 30--As the smoke settles
What a gun-fight it was. Bullets sailin' arrows whizzin' past ya, and of course our herd stampeeding like mad-dogs towards the River. TiPaul races Lightning past the lead and cuts sharp hopin' to turn the varmits some, Pookie let's out a YIP, and dashes round the herd to the south, turnin' the lead steers back towards our camp. Mind ya it was a better idea then havin' them chargin' long-horns divin' into the water have crazy-like. Dixie cut into the dust and thunderin' hooves, and roped a cow pullin' the rope taunt he backed her up and a number of steers took her lead and swung wide to the north, and retraced their poundin' hoof prints.. Strawberry and Sugar where slappin' their hats on the horses flanks to pick up even more speed, as the herd continued to run wild. " YEEEEHAWWW! Chyna's voice could be heard over the herd, They're turnin' back"
Well on any other day, them cows changin' their ornery minds mighta been a good idea, but right now it wasn't. A bullet whipped by, knockin' my hat clear off my head. "WOW, that was close"
"Sorry Boss," Baxter yelled, " I missed my target"
"I wanta hope so, especially if'n I'm that target" I couldn't help but laugh at all the fun we was havin'. Then I heard them cows bearing down towards us. I sprung for my horse Cutter and barrelled out to meet them Steers face-on, Sky and Jenny-Lynn kept me covered, as Sweetpepper, Little Peep, and Cydney rode out to join me. " We have to make them turn back into themselves. We'll have to hold tight and make'em veer to the right. That oughta slow them down enough to get' em back under control. With thousand pound of cows, headin straight at us, I was sure prayin' my plan would work. The lead cow came right towards us, the herd on her heals. I let off a couple shots into the air and she turned, her side brushin Cutter as she headed in the direction I had wanted.
"Yippe! It worked, I never doubted ya Boss" Little Peep yelled riding after the slowin' herd.
I whipped my forehead, counted my blessin's then rode back into the gun-fight. Jumpin clear of Cutter as I dove for the side of the chuckwagon.
"Ready Boss" BonBon whispered," Let's go gettum." I let out a whistle that brought JL, Sky, Kiddo, Jolie, Finnegan crawlin and weavin' their way to join me back of the dragon-Wagon. Each picked up a big metal bucket, and snuck off into the thick brush .I followed, my bucket in hand. Movin' silent like,we made our way to where we had Bart and his ratty bunch of rustlers pinned-down. Gettin as close as we could, we stopped, watchin a spell. Then Jenny-Lynn headed into the camp. Bart drew on her but seein' JL. he lowered his riffle. Jenny lifted her wing as if to stretch and we set sail with the special-surprise BonBon and Snowflake concocted. Honey, molasses, and red hot chili peppers land with a splat coatin' all them rustlers from head to toe. Bart stumbled, and landed square onto We sit to watch the show.

  Heya, Gus!
Finally able to login!!!

First, I want to apologize for not blogging last night, but Mom kept trying to login and she got the "This page is not available" error message every time she tried. She finally gave up around 10:30 PM. She emailed tech support and Crystal, who said that she would let the team know, but everyone is pretty much out for the holiday. Today I was able to login, and hope you like my face painting picture! Auntie Denise really did a smashing job, don't you think?

And yes indeed, I did get to the farmers market today! Got my usual compliments from folks who thought I was just the best ever!! And I flirted with Paula super big time, so that was pretty neat.

We had heavy rain before we left, but the sun came out and the skies were blue, so Mom and I hurried over to the market while it was not raining. Started when we pulled into the driveway of the apt. Great timing!!

Cya at the Milonga!

My mom has seen that toy in the fosterssmith catalog she just might have to get it . Sound's like it would work great to teach me and plus keep me company.
Well right now BC seems to be working great let's hope that it will be this way tonight. Nights are always the slowest then having the milonga on top of that really slows it down with all the birdies there.
Happy weekend I hope it's off to a good start. See you later.
P.S. Good luck to you and Hamlet tonight at the races.

Mom is ready to spend the last 3 days at the pool if the weather cooperates, then it's back to the old grind for her. She can't wait to get the okay to wear goggles so she can swim laps again.
We are ready for the milonga tonight! All of us are participating in some way, and we hope everyone stops by the ring toss booth, watches the pig races, and giggles at the pie eating contest. See you there! Hugs, Falco

  Hi Gus.
It's Sawyer.
Mom's dad's computer is fixed now. They had to redo something to get the printer driver to work.
Our dad wore his uniform for the first time yesterday. A lot of the officers did a "double take" when they saw him. Dad said he felt very proud to wear the uniform. He said it was a symbol of trust. The city of La Habra trusted him to represent them. He took mom into the police station and then sat in the comm. center for his required training shift. Dad already knew most of the stuff, from working in the field for almost a year. But he learned a lot about how the dispatchers work.
Today mom and dad are driving to Huntington Beach for a BBQ at mom's brother's house. Not sure what they're having but we know it will be great. Mom's brother is a fantastic cook.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of92 and a low of 66. But in Huntington Beach it will only be 81.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

  Hi, Gus
Okay, sometimes the end stitch falls off or isn't as tight so can see how would miss that. It is the w/e so won't be surprised if the Milonga is a tad slow. Your mom should keep her crochet handy just in case. Since so many birds are likely to be in attendance just hope slowness is all that occurs.

Warmed up a tad here but didn't feel like it was much to mom when she left work.

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

Well, I wouldn't be surprised if we do a BC mom get together in Pittsbird again someday. You could go to that one.
Not a greyt day up here today. It rained all day until 4pm when the sun came out and warmed us up to 71. Saturday looks like all day t-storms with 74 degrees. At least it won't rain on the Milonga Fair!

  Hi Gus
we had a beautiful day today. dad fertilized the lawn and then put the sprinkles on to get the fertilizer into the soil. mom took me outside in my harness and held me near the sprinkler which goes back and forth. as the first wave of water started coming down i got very scared and tried to fly away and plopped too the ground. mom then picked me up and held me tighter so when the next wave of water came it landed on me. i kind of liked it. i dried off immediately because the sun was so bright.

HAPPY TGIF DAY

My mom should knit between blogs! That is a great idea! My mom hates it when she's knitting and notices a mistake several rows down. Then you have to decide....let it go or rip out the rows to fix it. If my mom decides to leave the mistake.....it drives her crazy and she usually ends up fixing it.
BC is very unpredictable tonight!
Glad you got a sun bath today. It was very hot and humid here today.
Good luck to you and Hamlet tomorrow night at the races!

HI GUS, SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAD A GREAT DAY BEING OUTSIDE. MOM WAS GOING TO TAKE ME OUT BUT WE KIND OF HAD A DISASTER HERE AT HOME.

MOM CAME HOME FROM EXERCISE AND SHE WENT TO FIX HERSELF A COLD ICE TEA, SHE OPENED THE FREEZER AND GOT ICE AND NOTICED IT WASN'T QUITE FROZEN, THEN SHE NOTICED ALL THE WATER DRIPPING IN THE FREEZER AND ON THE FLOOR.

MOM GOT ALL THAT CLEANED UP AND G-PA CHECKED AND THE FREEZER AND FRIDGE ARE NOT KEEPING THINGS COLD OR FROZEN. SO EVERYTHING HAD TO GET PUT INTO THE FRIDGE/FREEZER IN THE GARAGE. SO I GUESS WE NEED A NEW FRIDGE. G-MA WANTS ONE THAT HAS THE FILTERED WATER IN IT AND THE ICE MAKER. MOM SAID I HAVE TO GET USED TO NOT HAVING ICE CUBES IN MY WATER TILL WE GET A NEW ONE. I LIKE MY WATER ICE COLD PLEASE.

  Hi Gus
Candida wants to send you her love for thinking of her on her second Hatchday!Mom is hoping to make a hatchday cake for her tomorrow if she's home long enough and she'll have a special celebration then!
Today was a bright sunny but cold morning and the temperatures never got beyond 68 degrees!It felt more like a cold fall morning and Mom was so cold that she had to get her winter fleece coat on as she left the house this morning!It warmed up to a pleasant afternoon but that was so shortlived.She packed the trash in the car and was gone for the day yet again! I(Dixie)got to go with her and when she got to Nana's,Mom and Nana went to the dump,then to the bank,across to Marshalls,then to Walgreens where both Mom and Nana got some things that were on sale,then they went to Stop&Shop and both Mom and Nana bought some apple pies that were marked down,Mom got some danish for dad for a snack,and some muffins for the morning,and Mom got some coffee creamer for dad's thermos and coffee for the morning.They came back and had lunch at Nana's and then basically relaxed a little and were both in no mood for doing anymore running around as they have done that all week!When Mom got home around dinner time,she got my dad's things ready for him to go to work to work the fireworks and the big Town celebration for its 375th birthday.Mom then got dad his dinner and we all went to sit on the deck with him while he ate but it was already getting cold out there and again we got no showers and Mom just couldn't stand how cold it was and we all soon were brought back inside the house to our room.Our lows for the night will be 55 degrees and that to Mom feels too much like winter!Dad started to shut some windows because it was so ice cold and Mom ran upstairs to get her winter socks on her feet they were so cold!Mom is hoping that it will be warmer tomorrow and we can all go outside and sit in the sunshine again!It was so good that you got to get outside also and enjoy some sunshine,we are hoping to get out tomorrow when the day is much warmer!That sounds so awesome to be sitting on the swing while the two of you are chatting back and forth to one another!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Loving you always and forever,my sweet friend,Love Dixie

  Day 29--The Guns Blazin--Battle at Pegleg Crossin'
WOW, now that was too close for comfort. Chuey here with today's Cattle Drive Update. It was just as the sun was settin' in the West, that the gun fight began. In the growin' darkness it becomes mighty hard to see what lurks in the brush near by a rider. The herd was grazin quiet-like when all of a sudden all "hell-broke-loss". Cinn-A-Bun had just rode long-bout the outer south flank of the herd, when somethin' went whippin' pass his ear, dang-close too.
"What the ???" he shouts in shock, kneein' Firestorm into a gallop to rejoin Kiddo, Gus and Willie toward the drag. " RUSTLERS!" went up the call as bullets came a sailin' towards the riders. Well, it wasn't but a second, before Jenny-Lynn, Sky, Snowy and Raffi was kneelin behind the boulders gun a blazin in return fire. Arrows flew towards the treeline, and a yelp came from the grown blackness, " Bart, I dun been shoot in the Vent."
I was just returnin from my trip to spy on their where-abouts when they'd jumped horses and took off into the night. I had hoped to get back before the fun started but let me tell ya, by the time I returned to the herd, the cows was racin' in panic towards the Crick, guns was blastin away at them Rustlers. I sprung off Cutter and dived behind the nearest rocks, takin' careful aim at a big Black galoot, ridin after our herd. He let out a yip when I dusted his tail feathers but good.
"BOSS, BOSS!?" Hulk came crawlin low over to join in the fight. "Jenny-Lynn and Raffi have Black Bart pinned down in cross fire. She wants tah know what you want her to do?"
"Tell her to bring him in alive if she can, we don't want no blood shed"
Hulk got off a few good shots as he ducked and dived the bullets wavin' his way back to where JL had Bart in her sights.
Jedi, Panther, Apache and Spot had managed to make their way up to join Cheyenne brothers. Kaji and Lizzie had their double-barrels blazin' holdin' off the mangy-thieves tryin to steal our Dragon-Wagon. Mikey was busy pepperin' a nasty-tempered bearded crow with rock-salt. "Got- em" he yelled to Kaji as the Crow let out a yelp as the shot bulls-eyed its mark.
"YEE HAAAW, nuthin better then a good gun-fight!" JL yells to me across the open grassland. Pookie and Dixie had raced out after the herd, with TiPaul, Sugar, Chyna and Strawberry in hot pursuit. Angel and Pepper covered the riders as they took care4ful aim towards the trees from where the return fire had come. Pearl and Silver hankered down behind an old wooden box and carefully watched for perfect aim and fired as one. "YOWWWW! Hey that hurt" came the pained response.
Cappy, Chipper and Boo Boo dropped down onto their bellies and began to inch closer to where the Rustlers where hidden. They had a BIG SURPRISE for them. Snowflake and BonBon had been busy mixin up a special gift for their uninvited Rustler friends.

  Hi Gus
My mom hasn't crocheted in years. She used to make shawls, but that was a long time ago. Maybe she should try it again.

Sunbath at 8:45 this morning, since it is supposed to be another triple digit day like yesterday. Mom remembered to put a nutriberry inside the little carrier so I got my treat after all. I will be glad when my mom can lift the heavier carrier though...only 5 more days!

Mom's visit with her GI doc went well. He said the steri strips could come off the incisions, and so Mom pulled them off last night. Guess what?!! They were keeping the itching down, and so Mom was going a little crazy trying not to scratch last night. She used cream and finally took a couple of Benadryl to be able to sleep. Much better today though. Doc say she looks like she is coming along fine and was able to reduce her acid reflux meds to once a day. She goes back in two weeks, and then hopefully she can stop taking them altogether! She will be cured. She's pretty eggcited after years of heart burn.

Dad goes back to work on Tuesday, and boy will this bird be glad to see him out of here! This morning I was on Mom's shoulder while she got some iced water, since Dad was in the bathroom. I was sure he was really on the couch hiding under that pile of blankets so I kept flying over there to look for him. No luck. Then later he played envelope under the door, and I destroyed that envelope with all my best moves. Hmmm, are we sure it is good he is going back to work?

If you know and love him from Facebook, you can now welcome Felix LaFollett to Bird Channel! His page number is 272339, go see him!
This morning mom was back to animal care, YAY! She cleaned the RVS room, which only has raccoons and ground hogs in it now. Then she did the silver foxes, who are always fun. One of them was jumping on her leg this morning to see what meat was in their bowls.
There is good news at the center, the fisher is going home to Cook Forest tomorrow, and the coyote pups are ready to be released in Mercer County on Tuesday! We bet all those animals will be glad to be home in the wild. The red foxes have been released as well, so the place is emptying out a little. There are still lots of waterfowl and birds, though.
Well, tomorrow is the milonga, and we're ready to party! I am running a ring toss booth, so come by and test your luck on the midway. The food will be fabulous, and we all think Chuey and company will let the cowbirds have the night off.
Hope you are having a great summer day full of sunshine and scritchies. Hugs, Falco

Well today is another three digit temp day. I'm surprised my mommy has not melted yet !!!
I'm sitting on top of my condo as my mommy blogs for me.
But I know the routine. When my mommy leaves the room I go back in my condo and get locked down.
I have been chewing the draw string on the curtain when my mommy's not looking.
One of these days I will make it snap in half !!! Heehee.
That's funny about your mommy. Sometimes they need to do one thing at a time. Better said than done !!!

Stay cool and comfy

  Hi Gus.
It's Sawyer.
Yesterday was totally wasted. First, mom said she was going to the police station to work for a few hours. She never went. Dad got dressed to take her but she said she wasn't going. Second, mom's dad's computer is totally messed up. Dad tried for three hours to load the software and drivers for the printer but the printer wouldn't communicate with the computer. After three hours of getting nowhere, dad said to take everything back to Staples and have them fix the problems. Also, there is stuff loaded onto the computer that dad knows wasn't there before. Mom's mom and dad have never used Skype but it's now loaded on the computer. Dad knows that, in the end, he will end up fixing it.
Today dad has to sit in the police dispatch comm center for a few hours, as part of his training. Being a total radio geek, dad is rally looking forward to it. Mom will go in at the same time.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 93 and a low of 65.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

SPECIAL MESSAGE TODAY...Unfortunately things don't always go well at our happy home either! Our dad has been struggling through some serious medical issues, and since this is the Bird Channel, we choose to keep most of that private! Some basic life levels managed to get out of whack, but with a little more rest, dad will be okay! Consequently we will be writing fewer notes for awhile, please bear with us!

  Hi, Gus
We don't usually like any help with our feathers either. Yup, just a gentle nudge with the 'ol beak lets mom know to not push it.

Oh, that is very annoying to discover a missed stitch or a wrong stitch several rows later. Our mom tries to check after every two rows or so but often waits and of course that is when she's made an error. Sometimes in knitting can use a crochet hook to fix a mistake but other times just needs to be ripped out and redone.

Our mom needs to start designing a Christmas stocking for the grand. Everyone else has one and fairly certain already has the yarn in the correct colors.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  TGIF ? NOT !
It's mom's last Friday before going back to school :( At least she did spend most of yesterday with me - after having daddy's car serviced, she went to the orchard to get gingergold apples - did you know I love apples ? So I couldn't get mad . . . today is a different story ! She and MY Laura are going back to school shopping - and there's not even a bird store where they're going ! What's with that ?

Mom does like to pick a stamp and the colors - not actually the shade though - she tries different things . . . we'll see ! Right now she has Sept. birthdays all over the table in various degrees of finished !

Hopefully she's home in time to get me to the track to work with Petunia ! We are in great shape, so look out all you competitors ! Love Cookie

  Hi Gus
not much going on here right now. mom spent the day weeding and weeding and then some more weeding. it got really cold here last night but as the day wore on it warmed up but the air was still cool so i didn't get any outside time today. maybe tomorrow.

i have the red feathers all over my body. mom says it breaks her heart every time she looks at me. they started growing in march of 2013 in my spring molt. then with my heavy fall molt even more came in. this spring mom was hoping that i would start losing them but even more grew. i probably have about 15 on each wing and lots of little red feathers on my tummy and back. this is usually a good sign that the end is near and mom starts to cry when she thinks about it.. anyway this is the first major red feather that has come out. i haven't really started my fall molt yet. just losing a few major feathers here and there. it does seem like i am also losing the smaller red feathers on my tummy and back, right now at this point i seem to be fairly healthy and mom says i have the most excellent formed poop.

love Cori

  Hi Gus
The way the BC has been so slow for over a month now, your mom will finish her crochet project in no time!
It is sad that we don't have more stores for us birds. It's really hard in small towns and rural areas like up here.
It was just another fall day today. I was busy chewing up more wood toys. It looks like Friday will be 70 degrees and t-storms all day.
Hugs
Chyna
PS If you are going to the Parrot Palooza on Oct 11, please email my mom ... thanks.

  Hey Gus!
Your mom crotchets when she is doing your blogs? That's a good idea! Maybe my mom should knit while she is blogging. Oh....usually if my mom finds a mistake in her knitting she has to rip it apart to fix it!
Well I have to get to bed! Good night buddy!
Love,
Raffikki

  Hi Gus
We woke up to a bright sunny warm day here with the temperatures at 78.Mom again got us all cleaned and fed and then skin sis was here early and whisked Mom away with her for the third day in a row.They went and picked up Nana and off they went to skin sis's orthopedic drs appointment.She had an X-ray taken and then she got some steroids and some other pain meds for her back and was told she had to have an MRI done and then come back and they will discuss things then,she has a pinched disc in her back and is in a lot of pain.Then from there they went to Ocean State Job Lot and got 20 pound bags of wild bird food,then to Main Street in Falmouth to a pizzeria that skin sis wanted to dine at for her birthday,they all got a Garden salad,then they walked on Main street and checked out the Farmers Market,and walked up to the post office,there were so many people there out walking dining in the cafeteria style places and going to all the shops there.Then skin sis went to the eye drs and ordered new contacts,they went to the Dollar Tree and got some things,then they went to DQ and got a blizzard, then to Stop&Shop where Nana bought some ice cream and a frozen cake for skin sis's birthday to celebrate with,then back to Nana's to have the cake and ice cream,by the time they were done it was dinner time and skin sis took Mom home where she got dad some dinner,us all cleaned and fed and we got to spend about an hour on the deck with Mom and dad as they had dinner there,but the sun was going down fast and it was starting to get really cold out so we were all brought inside so Mom could do the dishes and get everything ready for dad for work tomorrow! And then Mom started getting everything ready for her to go out again tomorrow to the dump and a few other places they didn't have time for today!It was my baby fister Candida's hatch day today and Mom hasn't been home long enough to even make her a hatchday cake and she promises to make it up to her on Saturday when she finally has a day off to be home all day!I'm so sorry about the c/p but BC has been really bad tonight and we keep getting our blogs for three days ago and none for tonight and it takes Mom 6 or more times to keep refreshing the page to get the up to date blogs to come up,we are so far behind on answering our blogs because of this problem and the fact that it keeps cycling over and over and over again!UGGGGH!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses,Loving you always and forever,my sweet friend,Love,Dixie

HEY GUS, MY MOM DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO CROCHET BUT YEARS AGO GOT INTO THE NEEDLEPONT KICK. SHE DID LOTS OF BIRDIE THEMED NEEDLE POINT AND CROSS STITCHING. SHE BOUGHT QUITE A FEW KITS TO DO BUT HASN'T DONE ANY INAWHILE SINCE HER HANDS GOT SO BAD. SHE HAS A BOUT 6 CROSS STITCH KITS TO DO BUT HASN'T GOT INTO IT. SOME OF THEM ARE REALLY PRETTY. THEY WERE ON SALE AT THE TIME. MAYBE ONE DAY SHE WILL ATTEMPT IT AGAIN.

IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL DAY HERE TODAY. MOM WENT TO GO GET HER SUV AT FORD. THE LATCH GOT FIXED AND IT DIDN'T COST MOM ANYTHING. THE PART WAS UNDER WARRENTY AND THE LABOR FREE SINCE THEY FAILED TO FIX IT PROPERLY LAST TIME.

  Hello Gus
Wow sounds like your having fun crocheting with your mom I am sure you like to help and she appreciates it. It was so much fun spending your hatchday with you, I enjoyed getting the guitar out and playing your song for you!! I hope you got my hatchday wishes on the other page we have been using....Do you know we should go camping this weekend, its a good long holiday weekend how fun that would be, we could invite all our friends, of course no parronts needed but we have not done much. We can sing around the campfire and make some smores yum yum...So how is your mom doing. We should have a practice one of these nights on our guitars so we can be ready for he weekend what do you say cousin? Its so nice to see the wonderful support to get me into the 10k club I just feel bad I dont get on here as much I know you understand but I know some are very particular about it. This weekend is going to be so much fun hanging out with you. Well I will send Merlin to the store and get all the food ok? Let me know if there is something special you would like....

Come visit me, Chico says I love you Sassy.

  Heya, Gus!
I never liked Mom doing my feathers at first, but then she just kept at it. And boy oh boy, do I love it now! It just feels really good to me to have her give me head scritches, and when she sees that the feathers are long enough to preen, she will open them up for me.

Well, sure hope that the BC is better tonight. Can't believe that it took some blogs between 3-6 attempts to get them submitted. Mom was so irritated, as she would have liked a chance to get some other things done on the puter.

Nice day here, but cooler. Mom did not object at all--the sun was out and it was really nice when she went to see what was going on out on the lake. It was pretty windy, though. A couple sailboats were out and they were clipping along pretty good with the wind. There were a couple waves that hit the breakwall, so it definitely was windy! Tomorrow is supposed to be in the 80's, humid, and rainy. And stay that way thru the weekend.

Can't wait until the Milonga! My face painting is gonna be so cool!

Your buddy,
Kaji
