  Hi Gus
Mom didn't know when the Scottish games were in Ligonier! She always wanted to go, maybe next year she will finally get there. She went once or twice to Fort Ligonier days, which was always fun, but she's never seen the Scottish games.
The double wedding yesterday was sure beautiful. We all wish the 2 happy couples long life and happiness. We were sorry to have to be silent during the reception, but mom had plans for the evening.
It was her first Night at the Races, a fundraiser for the pool where she goes in the summer. She always bought a horse and jockey for the event, but never went. She never won, either, although her sister has won at least $40 every year! Last night, she and her sister and brother in law went to the dinner and stayed for the races. Guess what? Mom's horse won in its race! Mom won $40, and since she bet on it, she won another $4. (Of course, she spent more than that during the course of the evening.) It sure was fun winning something, though!
Today it's kind of cloudy and it's supposed to be cooler, although when mom walked the dogs, it was sure humid and close. I hope you are having a great day today, getting lots of Sunday love, and having a pleasant weather day as well. Hugs, Falco

  Hey Gus!
Bet your mom is really going to miss her sister when she leaves.
So your mom is Scottish? That festival sounds like it was a lot of fun ! My parronts love to go to those ethnic festivals!
We are having beautiful Fall weather here! How is your weather? Our days are still in the low 80's but low humidity which is great!
Hope you have an awesome day!
Love,
Raffikki

  Hi Gus
It's Sawyer.
We were not on the BC yesterday because mom and dad had to be at the police station early for a meeting and to have the department photos taken. So, let's see, what's been happening? Oh yeah. On Friday dad finally got fed up and called DirecTV and talked to a tech. The first lady was really good and she and dad did all kinds of tests and found that the problem was either with the receiver or the cable. That's what dad had said all along. But, because of a lot of noise on our phone line the call was dropped. Dad called back and got another lady that was less than helpful. She kept telling dad to reset the power supply for the dish. When mom got up they called again and told the tech they wanted a service call. Guess what? The tech came out two hours later. Dad told him the story and he went outside and checked and replaced the cable. It was so bad he didn't even check anything else. Now, the TV works fine. That cable was the one that dad ran from the antenna to the kitchen. When they had the satellite stuff installed, the DirecTV guy never ran a new cable. Mom is going to call and complain and refuse to pay for the service call. Dad also took the car over to the repair guys to check for another water leak. Also the lock and window controls on mom's side quit working so he wanted that to be checked, too. And guess what? Yup, they found nothing. He's going to leave the car with them tomorrow so they can let it run all day if needed.
The Police Dept. photos went well. Except for a few, the entire police force was there and they all stood on these risers. Then dad's Radio Patrol group had their picture taken. Now we'll see how the pictures come out. After the photo opts mom and dad went to Sprouts for stuff they were out of and then came home.
Today dad needs to look at the sprinklers again. The city sent out mandatory watering rules so dad has to figure out how to water on certain days only. We think he's going to set them to water every day and just turn them on the night before his watering days.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 83 and a low of 63.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

  Hi, Gus
We aren't out if the front door isn't locked and deadbolted to ensure there's time before anyone outside comes in is warned so we get safely inside our birdhouse. Just can't take any risks whether fids are fully flighted or not.

The parronts have never gone to the Scottish games, well, mom hasn't. Maybe dad went as a child as he's the one with the Scots background. Mom's sis hubby has a kilt and wears it on occasion. Our dad would never do it.

So, so busy at mom's work yesterday so we missed being live at the wedding and reception. Good thing we arrived early to handle all the music and the requests for dance songs too.

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

  Hey Gus !
Sounds like mom had a good time yesterday - mom wishes there were something like that around here - she's Scotch too ! Her daddy was born in Bannockburn (just outside Stirling) !

What a lovely day yesterday ! The weather was almost summerlike again !

Then the rains came in during the night :( Dark and dreary this morning . . . Mom and dad promised that after errands, the day would be mine ! Of course those errands include marketing and I can't complain too much cause I love food !

Happy Sunday :) love Cookie

  Hi Gus
Can you believe that Mom got us all up EARLY today and brought us our breakfast early,cleaned our cages so fast and got dad his breakfast and then all the carriers came out of the closet and the leashes and harnesses too! It was so cold here and Mom ran to put the heater box on to get the chill out of the rooms for us.Mom practically got dressed on top of the heat box just to keep warm!Then we all got our harnesses on and Mom put(me) Dixie and Candida under the blanket and then she wrapped her coat around us.Dad had warmed up the car for us and then we were off to pick up Nana and our cousins,Trixie II and Bella!Then we went to Yarmouth for the Blessing Of The Animals!There were so many big dogs and little dogs and a big fat cat that was 16 pounds in a carrier!As soon as we came up onto the Church lawn to get a seat, everyone came out with their cameras and asked to take pictures of us.The first Blessing our pictures will be in the local paper here and Mom hopes that she will be able to see it.We all got a nice bright orange hanky to hang on our cages.Everyone kept coming over to Mom and Nana asking them what kind of birds were were,some even thought we were parakeets or cockatiels!After the ceremony and the prayers we were all lined up to get our individual blessings,the Reverend called us each by name and gave us our blessing and then we all piled back into the car and went to Falmouth for the Blessing there!There were lots of dogs and cats there also and no birds so again we were photographed by several photographers and were told that we would be in the Pet Gazzette. Mom can't wait to get that one to see it!Then we went back to Nana's house and and Mom put our car seat back over the back seat and(me) Dixie and Kallie got to ride back on the car seat while Candida was made to ride in the carrier on the way back home.Mom returned us all to our cages so we could finish our breakfast and she could try and get some of her chores done!
It's a bright sunny day here but was it ever so cold last night it went down to 38 degrees last night and it felt like it was the middle of winter!Today we got up to 66 degrees here and the wind is blowing sure feels even colder!Where is that warm up that we're supposed to be getting?
I can just picture my dad in one of those kilts!He would look so funny with his skinny legs and from what I hear they don't wear anything under them!Those Scottish games really sound like a fun time out!And the Maxwell tent really sounds quite intriguing to me!It sounds like your sweet Mom had a good time visiting with her cousins and their Mom!Getting together is always so much fun with family that you haven't seen in a while!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for my sweet ekkie friend! Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hi Gus
Well, I didn't get a sunbath today, and it is all my fault again. It was actually too cool this morning before Mom and Dad went grocery shopping, and so when Mom got home she tried to get me to go outside. Nothin' doin', and I made that quite clear thru several attempts on my mom's part. She couldn't even get me to sit on her shoulder, much less climb on and in to the outside carrier. Oh well, maybe tomorrow.

However it is not a total loss, because I was more than willing to climb on my mom's shoulder to come in and blog. (She tried one last time to get me to climb in the carrier....nope!) So now I am sitting on Mom's knee and having Mom time with my blog time. Works for me.

  Hi Gus
Boy, you sure were busy going in and out of your condo yesterday! Hope the visitors appreciated your kindness.
Thanks for the well wishes. My side doesn't feel as hard to mom, so maybe that's a good sign. I am still giving her a hard time with the meds, though.
I feel good enough to be dancing at the wedding today. It's at 4 eastern, hope to see you there.
Mom had a training type tour this morning to help the people who work in the halls. She took them through cenozoic and mesozoic halls and gave them some background on the exhibits. It was fun, different from any tour she's ever done. Then she had a tour in mammal hall for the general public. It was one of those mini tours, and she finished in 35 minutes, YAY. That's supposed to be the time frame for those.
I hope you are getting lots of good weather today, we sure are! May your day be filled with sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hello Gus~
I hope you are having a great day! It's starting out cool and misty here! Just the way it should be!
Only 2 more days until the fair is over down in town! It's really fun but there is way too much traffic down there during the fair time. My skin sister's boss went yesterday and brought back a whole bag of fair scones for us! YUMMY! Mom has the mix so we can make more at another time. They have raspberry jam in them!
Can you believe that it is the last day of summer?? I had a nice summer but I just love Autumn. Pretty colors and really yummy squash! Halloween too! Guess I had better start thinking about a costume!
I hope your day is just perfect!

  Day 20- Cheticamp River Kayaking
Hello everybirdie, Angel Girl here with today's wet BOTM post. We finally arrived at the inland beginning of the Cheticamp River, where we found our Kayaks ready and waiting for our down river tour. The sun was just peaking over the mountains when we pushed off and began to slowly paddle out into the calm river. We had not gone very far when the current of the river began to move rapid and strong towards our first white-water adventure.
" Angel GIRL!!!" Raffikki called loudly, " you sure this is safe?"
"Well, I think so," she saw the look on several faces change, " YES, of course it is, just hang on tight to the sides of the kayak and paddle when you can. Watch for rocks, and paddle backwards to slow yourself down to navigate around them. SEE YOU ALL AT THE BOTTOM"
"WEEEEEE," Little Angel and Dixie's kayak begins it rapid ride down the rough, fast moving waters, spray flying up into their faces, " this is fun Dixie" Dixie wasn't so sure, but paddles and leaned slightly to go around the first rock in their pathway.
"Oh, my feathers!" Chyna complained as water soaked her from head to tail, " It's freezing cold too!"
"Paddle harder Cori" Boo Boo ordered as she navigated a turn in the river expertly
""BRRRRRR. It's icy. I'm soaked too" Falco called to Chyna as she and Willie splash around a huge boulder in the river.
"Havin' fun BB?" Sky asked laughing as water covered over their kayak, as they bobbed and spun down the decline" reaching quickly back to check on his pickles. " Ok, their safe!"
"YUCK!!!!!! " BonBon glares at Spot who grins back, " you did that on purpose." BonBon shakes her feathers dry of water and "OHHHHHHHHHH, algae" Spot giggles and splashes her again with the paddle. She sticks out her tongue. " where'd you learn that from"
"I'm tellin' Poppa Sky on you Spot" and Little Angel"
YEEHAWW" SamIAM yells as he and Miranda move swiftly through the choppy waters, mist and waves soaking them to the skin. " This is so much fun"
" Hold on tight" Jesse yells to Falco as they reach a very rough, rocky spot at the bottom of a short falls. Willie and Jesse paddle hard to keep up-right and finally they exit the white water into the calm river below. :Wasn't that greyt falco?" Jesse asks, but only gets a fluff of wet feathers in response. The boys laugh.
" Here we go Gus" Hulk says as they enter the rapids, water falling high around them
"Snowy, Strawberry are you two ok?" Angel calls back seeing them caught up on a small dead-fall( tree limb) in the water.
"Yep, we're free" the kayak moves off swiftly, into the deeper water.
Chipper, Cheyenne, Cookie and TiPaul ride the rushing current safely through the first turn, into the rough, drop over the falls, when suddenly their kayak turns sideways. They paddle hard trying to correct themselves, but it's too late, they tip to the left and then turn upside down. Just as swift they roll themselves upright to the applause of the others watching from below.

  Hi, Gus
Yeah, dad figured that the top of the seed catcher might be sharp so used so sorta cloth tape to ensure we didn't get cut. Pearl flings a lot of food from the seed stick holder as it has a base and that's what mostly falls to the floor past the seed catcher. Not so much flies outta out food dishes.

Hopefully that phone line will be repaired correctly and not have the noise, static or other interference.

Wow, lots of being sent to the condo for visitors. We are normally secure inside our birdhouse if anyone is there other than the parronts.

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

Well, mom did it again ! She came home from school and started in on another room in the house ! Then around night-night time she realized she needed milk for coffee and off she went ! Then, as we all know, today is the day the folks go to help out at the g'parronts ! Hopefully they'll be back early or I may go on strike ! Enough of this ignore the bird stuff !!

The plumber comes back on Monday to install the shower/tub valve - so once again, I'll show off for him :) I wonder if he'll have an assistant ? When the new dishwasher was installed, I made friends with the assistant and daddy had to hold the flashlight and hand the plumber tools ! His helper was playing with me ! har har har !

My mommy used to have a little red hen named Penny.
She was so cute and house broke. She would walk inside and jump on the sofa to watch TV with my mommy. She was also newspaper trained. So whenever Penny had to poop on the newspaper she went. My mommy misses her lots.

This morning was a cold sunny day and our temperatures got no higher than 59 degrees and we will be at a low tonight of 48.Mom packed the trash and the recyclables in her car along with six heavy boxes of clothes and some dinner plates,sugar and creamer sets and tea pot and a box of shoes.By the time she got done trying to fit everything in her car,she could barely see out the back window,(she has a station wagon)!The she packed (me)Dixie on the car seat and we took off to Nana's.Then Mom had to take everything out of her car and stuff it into Nana's car along with all of Nana's trash and recyclables!Nana has a tiny car and that whole car was jammed,Mom could barely shut the back doors!After Mom got the car loaded and (me) Dixie settled in the sun room with Trixie II they took off for the senior center and dropped off the six boxes of clothes and the box of shoes,Nana dropped off her old meds to the police station who were collecting them as they didn't want anyone flushing them down the toilets as it would harm the water supply and wreak havoc on the ecosystem,after they collect all the old drugs they burn them.Then they went to the dump and got rid of all the recyclables and trash and then they went back to Nana's to see how skin sis was,she wanted to hang out with Mom and Nana for the day so Mom drove to her apartment and picked her up and they went to Comcast so skin sis could pay her cable bill,then the eye drs so she could get her new contacts and from there they went to Ocean State Job Lot and Mom got 4 bags of wild bird food 20 pound bags and Nana got one and they got a few other things,then they went to the Dollar Tree where Mom got my dad some popcorn and pretzels,then they went to Shaws where Mom got some pizza for Saturday night dinner,and a few other things,then they dropped skin sis back off at her apartment and headed off to Roche Brothers and Mom got some fresh broccoli,two gallons of milk,some angel hair pasta,a 24 pack of bottled water and several other things then they went back to Nana's as it was 4:00pm,Mom again unloaded the car and put those 4 bags of wild bird food in her car along with the milk and everything else she bought and brought Nana's things in the house for her,she stayed and had a cup of coffee with Nana and something to eat and then packed (me)Dixie up to go home.It was good that dad was there to unload the heavy bags of bird seed and water as Mom was too tired and too sore to lift them for a fourth time!After Mom got everything put away and got us all cleaned up for the night(Dad had given us all our snacks)Mom got dad his dinner.Its been a long day and Mom is so tired and is so glad that its the weekend and she doesn't have to go anywhere til next week!
Oh that noise in the phone lines is so annoying and that's what happened to Mom a few months ago when she had to get our phone fixed!

  Hi Gus.
HAPPY TGIF DAY

today we saw a red squirrel fighting with a grey squirrel. it looked like they were dancing. no shiver me timbers for the next few days at our house. tomorrow its going up to 80. YEAAAAY.

WELL LAW SUITS ARE PENDING BECAUSE OF GROUND WATER CONTAMINATION BY RANGE RESOURCES (one of the many fracking companies). they have agreed to pay 4.15 million in fines for violations and contamination of our drinking water.. they are still using the outdated open water containment of the poisonous waters allowing leakage and access to wildlife. at least the other FRACKING Compaines have switched to above ground storage tanks and are building safer fracking sites. no fracking should be allowed by them until they update and comply. it seems it is easier to pay the 4.15 million in fines rather than do anything about their leakage. a big THANKS to our esteemed governor for giving all these fracking companies the green light to come into our lands and poison everything. (we are being sarcastic)

love Cori

  Day 19--Sights and Scenes to behold
"HELLOOOO!!!!!!!" Angel Girl yells, listening to her voice echo off the rock faces of the mountains. " This is so cool. We have so much to do in this one park, it's incredible."
"Oh look" Kaji points as he spies a large mother black bear with three tumbly teenage cubs following behind, wrestling and rolling in the long meadow grass.
There are many activities to do when visiting the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Activities include camping, hiking, sightseeing, swimming, fishing, cycling, golfing, kayaking and surfing. There are endless swimming options available for all ages in the park. There are five main salt water ocean beaches in the park and two freshwater lakes. The ocean beaches include Ingonish Beach, North Bay Beach, Broad Cove Beach, Black Brook Beach and La Block Beach. The two freshwater beaches include Freshwater Lake and Warren Lake. Freshwater Lake and Ingonish Beach are both supervised with a lifeguard during the summer months. There are very strong currents at Black Brook and Ingonish Beach which must be considered when bringing small birdies to these two beaches.
"Hey let's go white water kayaking down the Cheticamp River." Pookie says eager for adventure. " Then we could try surfing off the beach."
"Sounds like fun." Angel Girl climbs up on a tree stump to be heard. " OK, who wants to try some kayaking in white waters?" she looks as every wing goes up. " cool bunch of adventures."
"They Park ranger says they have kayaks arrival at the top of the river. We can ride the horses there, or hike cross country." Jenny-Lynn tells the group.
"We better hike, leave the horses here until we return and head down tot he ocean later for some surfing. Pookie offered to help teach us a few basics." Willie adds, grabbing his backpack
. The sun shines like sparkles through the heavy pine forest canopy. As the group walk they reach the opening over looking the ocean and park below. Steep cliffs and deep river canyons carve into a forested plateau bordering the Atlantic Ocean.
"BB, this is so beautiful, I feel like we have escaped into the past. Look how alive it all looks here." Sky hugs BB close as they look out over the park.
"Dixie, look, deer" Little Angel watches as the group graze in the shadows of the mountain.
Rio and Cydney, stand in awe at the size of the ocean stretched before them. " It goes on forever"
Jesse, joins Falco as they take photos to member their trip to Cape Beeton. " Popeye, Cori, Boo Boo and Pearl stop to admire an Eagle soaring high in the sky above them.
"We better get going so we have time to kayak before the sun gets too high in the sky. It will be so much fun bumping and splashing down the river." Angel Girl talks to Lalo and Sugar as they begin to hike down the soft, leaf covered pathway.
Sky grins, patting his backpack. " some pickles just in case I get hungry."
Angel Girl giggles and shakes her head at her frother, " always hungry"

  Hi Gus
Today we finally got the real cool down. Mom took me out for my sunbath at 8:55 so as to be sure I got sun before she went to the gym, but it was actually so cloudy it was a little cool. We only stayed the minimum (per the vet) of 20 minutes. However since today's high is 83 (YAY!!) it was so nice outside when Mom got home a bit before noon, we went out again for another sunbath. Then we came back in and shared rice and veggies for lunch. And I am now perched on Mom's knee dictating my blogs.

Well, Mom did it. She went to zumba after training with Becky today, and it went well. She had to really watch herself not to give in to the hip swaying and circling, because that is still a no no, and she also left after 40 minutes instead of staying for the whole hour. It wasn't that she was too tired, but she was worried about her tummy. She is being very careful. And boy, did she get a lot of hugs from all the zumba ladies! It was a great time for her, but me...not so much. I guess I have to accept that zumba is back to stay.

Is everybirdy remembering to go vote for Rodeo Queen? Remember every living bird in your flock gets one vote each day thru the 24th, so don't miss a single one.
So far every contestant has at least one vote, and I know when I go count this evening there will be even more. Will yours be there????

  Hi Gus
Where is mom going to hang those cut outs? It looks like they are on curtains now. Is that where they'll be?
Today is my 3rd day on the antibiotics, so mom got her 3rd bite today (on the arm instead of the hand this time). Only 11 more doses to go, heehee. I don't really like getting toweled and told what to swallow, but I think mom means well. She is wondering if anybirdie out there has a suggestion for probiotics, as well. She hates to buy benebac, because I'm only one bird, and those tubes are expensive. Has anybirdie tried a dot of yogurt? We think that may work, but we aren't sure. Mom says it would be such a tiny amount, it shouldn't hurt, be we'd like to be sure.
Mom cleaned the coyote pens today, and both boys are getting big. They should be gone soon, we think. Yesterday the 22 outdoor raccoons were released, YAY, and today about 6 turtles said goodbye to us and went home to the wild. It's really clearing out there. Martha's foster owlets went into the flight cage this morning after the red tailed hawk was released from there, so it's starting to slow down considerably at the center.
I hope you are having a good day today, even though these days are getting shorter and the weather is cooling down. Get lots of extra cuddles to keep you warm, okay? Hugs, Falco

  Hi Gus
It's Sawyer.
WOOOO HOOOO!!!! It finally cooled down. Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 84 and a low of 63. But they say it will heat back up next week. As long as it doesn't hit 100 again, we're ok with it.
Dad has to take the car to the repair shop again. Even after replacing the water pump it is still loosing coolant. And now the window control and lock on mom's side doesn't work. It's always something. Also, dad has to talk to DirecTV. The receiver in the kitchen won't work unless you unplug it for a minute and plug it back in. What a pain.
Not much else going on. Tomorrow, Saturday, is the big day for the police dept. photo. Dad's got his Class A uniform ready and mom's ready, too.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

  Hi, Gus
Guess the seeds catchers do stop a few seeds but mainly it is just something to sit on when we 'tiels are out. Dad put a layer of cloth tape on it so not sharp as we enjoy scooting along until we decide to climb to the top of the birdhouse. Sounds like maybe you don't fit there so well so that is good reason not to want to sit on it.

We assume the cows have their own routine about which way they want to wander around. Since you only get out when it is warm enough and when your mom is available aren't always there when the cows are close. They seem like fairly gentle critters so have the impression they wouldn't be rough to the baby ones.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Gus
V4U today. It's great that fall is finally here. We sure do like the cooler weather. Nothing new, just busy as usual. Our two clearance hibiscus flowered yesterday for the first time since we bought them. They were in pretty bad shape when we bought them so it was a treat to see them in flower with healthy looking leaves. Wishing you a nice weekend. From, Mayo

  TGIF Gus !
I'm glad you got out . . . those days sure are numbered ! It's been a busy week here ! Mom had back to school night last night and didn't get home till 10:00 ! ! Of course she said good-night and re-tucked me in ! Daddy is a great pal and my favorite playmate, but he's not very good about tucking in ! I'm hoping for lots of Cookie time this weekend !

After school today though mom has to go buy a new shower/tub valve - ours just fell off ! The plumber says it's because we have hard water things just don't last . . . last spring it was the sink - sigh - always something :(

Have a lovely Friday - Cookie

  Hi Gus
Yes, we are all set for the drive. But, mom is just worried about that 9 hour drive by herself! She is thinking that she might stay with someone to break it up. That would add another hour or two but then, it would be closer.
I thought you lived in town? You have cows outside your window????
Today was a cold day with a bit of sun. Mom & I did some house cleaning but mostly relaxed. Dad will be home tomorrow for dinner. I don't think he caught any fish. Mom & I would rather go out for dinner.
I made it to the 20K ... thanks Scoober!

  Hi Gus
Its a nice sunny day here and the temperature is at 72 degrees but its not the 72 of a month ago or the beginning of summer,its a coolish warm but not warm enough for us to go outside and having a shower outside is strictly out of the question!More birds have been flying into our big window in the tv room and Mom always checks to see if they are all right and this time when she went out she found a grakcle dead in her flower garden which is right below the window.Mom has done everything she knows to keep them from flying into the window,she has all kinds of sun catchers and a twirly shiny star but nothing seems to be working.Most of the time they fall into the garden below the window and are stunned,but recover and fly away as soon as mom goes out there to check on them but this one hit the window hard and must've broke his neck when he hit it so hard!It really upsets Mom to see them constantly banging into the window and now they are also banging into the big window in the dining room and that one overlooks the deck!It too has those stickers up on the window so they can see there's something there but they still keep on coming and crashing into the window!
Its Mom's only day off and she's been busy trying to load the car with more of skin sis's boxes of clothes she took from the metal closet that skin bro hauled away for her and some dishware and other things.Mom is hoping that as soon as she's feeling a bit better she will come and finish the other three rooms that still have stuff in them before the snow falls!
How wonderful for you to be able to get out for a sun bath today,I only wished we could go back out there again for a sunbath and a shower!It really must be so much fun to watch those cows on the hill and to see the baby cows is an awesome sight to see!
Mom is making a stir fry dinner for dad tonight with fresh broccoli,corn from corn on the cob teriyaki sauce and angel hair pasta,Mom had broccoli and fresh tomatoes from Nana's garden all done up in the stir fry.She even mixed in some peach mango salsa and was it good!
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 ekkie friend,Love,Dixie

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