  Hey Gus !
A cold front came through last night on the heels of a little rain . . . down into the 50's today and even colder for the weekend ! The weather guessers say that Saturday night there may even be a few flakes ! NO ! Not only cold, but darker nights ? I guess the winter is here, huh ?

I was pretty cranky last night - didn't know what I wanted to do and just kept squawking about everything that wasn't a head skritch ! Mom tucked me in early ! At least I'm ready for today now :) Hope you have a good one !

Congratulations to our lovely friend Chyna ! love Cookie

  Hi Gus
HAPPY HUMPDY

the doggie has a UTI for 2 month now and antibiotics haven't worked clearing it up. the vet wanted to use a different antibiotic that costs $500. dad said that is ridiculous so the vet is having the antibiotic made up at a compounding pharmacy which brought the price down to about $125. hopefully this one will work.

so far every birdie is acting fine today. naturally dad made tea this morning and used the burner that had plastic melted on it. mom had coated the burner with olive oil last night when she scraped the plastic off. she wiped it off as best she could and the only thing you could smell was the rest of the live oil burning off. it was a pretty uneventful day and for that we are grateful. hope you had a wonderful day.

love Cori

  Hi Gus... TiPaul here
Mom finally got around to giving me some computer time and here I am, thanking every birdy for helping me get to that 9000 vote and more! I am so excited - I might just make that 10K mark this year. That would be so amazing, but even if it is next year, it would be good too. I won't be around for Halloween but Mom got me dressed up too. I have a big bag of nutriberries to share with all my birdy friends. See you soon! Hugs from TiPaul.

  Hi Gus
Will you be driving to FL with your parronts? I'm going with mine. It's the last 2 weeks of January. We rented a house (with a pool) in Port Charlotte. I hear it's a couple of hours south of Orlando on the gulf side. I will have my own room. Skinsis will be stuck at home with the snow.
I think we birds are acting up cause of the weather and the short days.
My dad gets up early too. Mom and I don't like to be up before 9am.
The silly weather guy says we should get a few inches of the cold white stuff on Friday. How can we have snow when others are enjoying 80 to 90 degrees with sun? This is so wrong! I say it's time to sit on the perch in my footie pj's and drink more hot chocolate.

  7 and Mom helped unload the car with her things and then collected both Dixie and Mario and brought them back home here with us.Mom didn't get done putting everything away til nearly 8 and then she put Mario in a small hospital cage with food and water and he crawled up the cage bars and sat himself on a perch,Mom is waiting to give him his meds and she is trying to keep Mario and Dixie's meds separate as she has to give both of them different amounts at 12 hour intervales.
Mom has had such a stressful day today and is praying so hard that Mario will show some improvements by morning!She's so upset!If anyone out there will please say some prayers for our frother Mario we will so appreciate it more than you can know,we don't want to lose our sweet fibling.He is the sweetest tiel you would ever meet.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and a vote for you too,Love,always,Dixie
Please forgive me for not talking too much,Mom is just so devastated about my frother's diagnosis and she is having a hard time typing through her tears.

This morning was a nice warm morning with temperatures close to 70 degrees,a bright sunny day here and Mom was ready when skin sis picked her up for zumba class this morning.They went to zumba and (I)Dixie went with them and I got to sit in on the class while all the silly ladies and guy danced around to the crazy music!Then when Mom and skin sis got to Nana's house,skin sis had brought our frother Mario(a Lutino Tiel) down to her house for Mom to check him out as she was worried be had a lame leg.When Mom took a look at Mario,she immediately called the vet and the vet wanted Mom to take him in right away!When Mom,Nana and skin sis arrived there they took Mario in the back room to check him out and they made Mom,Nana and skin sis wait in the examining room til they got back,they must've been waiting there for over 45 minutes and the prognosis wasn't very good.Mario had end stage gout and he had his crop flushed and has bacteria growing in his crop,the vet took blood from him today and only got a little as he was too weak to have much more drawn,the vet told Mom that she could take Mario to Tufts which is a two and a half hour drive away from here and it would cost Mom over $5,000.00 for all the tests and procedures they will do there and she also told Mom that Mario could pass away if they put him under anesthesia and if she spent the money on him he still could die and then she told Mom that they could do the tests,X-rays,more blood work,and everything else there but he still might not make it either so Mom and skin sis just lost it and burst out crying,they couldn't believe just how bad Mario is.So she gave Mario some Enrofloxacin to take every 12 hours and some Nystatin to take every 12 hours for the bacteria.They want Mom to take Mario back in on Friday for more tests but Mom doesn't want to put him through any more upsets,he was throwing up while the vet examined him.Mom is so very upset and can barely see through her tears as she writes this for us.Then when they told Mom they faxed Mario's Nystatin to Walgreen's for Mom to pick up,Mom waited three hours before she went there to pick them up,when she went there they weren't even in yet so Mom asked the pharmacist why wasn't it in there and they told her it was the vets end so Mom called the Vet and told them the script wasn't in yet and they said they would send it again so Mom and skin sis and Nana walked around Walgreens for ten more minutes and then Mom went back to get the script and they said they just got it in and it would be another 30 minutes to get it filled so Mom,Nana and skin sis went to Market Basket to start their grocery shopping and this was at 5:00pm.Mom was in no mood for walking around the grocery store and was like walking in a dream throwing items in her cart.By the time they all got done shopping it was after 6:00pm and they headed back to Walgreens which was about a 20 minute drive back and they finally had it in,by the time they got back to Nana's it was close to

  October BOTM POST number twenty-three
Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with our Humpday BOTM Adventure Post. What a relief to see Spot back with us, only to have the the rest of you disappear before our eyes. There is something funny going on around here.
I was just about to cheer for joy that we had found Spot when I heard Cookie say, "I wish I had a jelly donut" and zuzam he became a jelly donut.
"NO LIZZIE" I screamed just in time to stop Lizzie from making a quick snack of our friend cookie. " that's Cookie? I think!"
Everywhere I looked there was something new where a moment before a birdie had stood. Sky was a big green dill pickle, there were cookies, peanuts, shoes, and all sorts of funny things, and of course Cookie the jelly-filled doughnut. Now, I know that this corn maze has been one unusual adventure but there was definitely something odd happening, and I was determined to find out what. With Spot, BonBon, Jenny-Lynn and a few other remaining birdies, we carefully gathered our friends up, and placed them into our backpacks to take to the Castle. BB threw Sky, the pickle, over her shoulder. "I told him if he didn't stop eating so many one day he'd turn into a pickle."
"Ok, we have everyone? Let's get to the castle. I know that the Book of Magic spells there must have a way to turn them back to themselves." to myself I said "I hope!" and off we went along the wide road. The Castle drew ever closer as we hurried to reach it's safety and save our friends.
Finally at the Castle, we made no waste of time to rush in the gates and into the main hallway. Queen Angel was there to greet us. "Where is everybirdie? Did you enjoy the Corn Maze?"
With a quick explanation about our friends we headed to the Magic Room, a place created by Queen Angel during her stay this month. As we filed into the room, lauded down with the backpacks filled with our changed friends we saw Tango there, dressed as a pretty Fairy. She was startled to see all of us there in the Magic Room.
"Hello Jesse, Hi everyone, how do you like my Fairy Halloween Costume?" she asks happily, then in her wings we saw it, Kiddo's Merlin the Wizard's magic spell book. Tango happily reads a spell from it, as butterflies and flowers magically appear.
"Tango, don't do that" Jenny-Lynn says quickly, " that Book is filled with Spells and magic incantations that only Kiddo knows. Then she remembered the Magic wand that had been Kiddo and she reaches into her backpack and retrieves it carefully. She takes the big Book of Spells from Tango and wing-tips through the pages. "Nothing. Nothing here about changing birds back to themselves.' she continues to look when suddenly she sees the page she was looking for, "here, this is it, " How to Undo What's Been Done" She reads it carefully. It says we need a Wizard?"
"Oh No, we have none right now. WAIT! Maybe a Fairy will do?" Jesse says eggcitedly looking at Tango

  Hi Gus
Does your mom cook the steel cut oats into oatmeal or give them to you raw? I have eaten oatmeal with my mom, but I am not crazy about it. If there is no fruit in there, I turn up my beak. Never tried it raw, so wondering if that is what you like.

It is supposed to hit 90 here today, but it is only 85 now and Mom took me out at 12:30 for my sunbath. It felt just fine, so I think the weather geeks are off again. Good thing. 90 degrees at the end of October is just wrong, even for So Cal.

After the sunbath we came in and had Ziti Marinara for lunch. It was not all that good, but Mom is just so thrilled to be able to eat tomato sauce again she really didn't care. The sauce was not to my taste, so she would lick it off a piece of pasta and give the clean pasta to me. So we both got plenty to eat.

And now I am doing my daily dictation from Mom's knee. I have gotten so well-behaved lately, Mom keeps asking if I am doing drugs! Silly Mom; where would I get them and what would I use to pay for them? She will be leaving for the gym from 4-6, and then I will probably wish I had some drugs. I do get her from when she gets home until bedtime though, so that's good.

  Hi Gus
It sounds like you should go back to the other stroller, so you can see where you're going, instead of where you've been, heehee.
Yesterday mom went out with her sister to Barnes and Noble, she got 2 ebooks for $6.99 each, including the new Anne Rice! She also bought other books, of course, because it's never enough with her! They had sandwiches instead of whole dinners, then came home where we had mom for the rest of the night. Today she's going to get a haircut, then pick up that lamp. Remember that lamp? Well, it isn't the cord, the store called and said they can't repair it. She will talk to the guy today and see what's wrong. If it's a matter of finding a lamp repair place, she will give it a shot, because it's an Ott light, not cheap!
It's gotten a lot cooler and really cloudy today, temps are going to be in the 50s. Yesterday it was around 80 and gorgeous. Oh well, it IS fall, after all.
I hope you are having a good day and getting snuggles and kisses. Hugs, Falco

  Hi, Gus
Oh, guess we confused a cuckoo clock with a grandfather one. Think the one mom's gpa had must've been a cuckoo as it was mounted on the wall and the lil bird came out to chirp the hour. There were long strings (wires? chain?) that hung down below it that somehow used to wind it? Mom can't quite recall as it was a long time ago.

Good that you got out for the stroller ride but too bad it was backwards. That must've felt strange and better to use the regular one. Always best to be able to see what is going on.

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

It's Sawyer.
Forgot to mention that yesterday was free movie day. Mom and dad saw "The 100 Foot Journey". It's a story about a family that moves from India to France and opens an Indian restaurant right across the road from a high class French restaurant. It was a very good movie.
Mom didn't feel good so they came home, fixed leftovers for dinner and relaxed.
Today mom and dad are going to drive to San Pedro harbor and check out a tall ship that is part of the Mexican navy. It's in port for a few days and there are free tours.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 87 and a low of 69.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,

We tend to get those house shaking t-storms more times than we want :(
It's just too cold and wet up here for any walks for me. But, my stroller is going to FL with me. So, you have two strollers? I only have the one. Dad made a perch for it. Mom is going to ask him to get some food dishes in there too. I won't walk on the bottom to get food. Funny isn't it ... I eat in my Wingabago but not my stroller?
Can you believe that they are predicting snow for Friday? Snow on Halloween isn't fun up here.
Sit back on the perch and have a cup of hot chocolate with me.

GETTING OUT IN A STROLLER FOR A WALK SOUNDS GREAT. WISH I COULD DO THAT BUT WE HAVE NO ROOM IN THE CONDO FOR A STROLLER TO BE STORED.

WE HAD ANOTHER KINDA SUNNY DAY HERE WITH TEMPS IN THE MID 50'S BUT IT WAS VERY WINDY AGAIN. SO THE WIND MADE IT COOLER. EACH DAY THE TEMPS WILL DROP TILL WE GET TO THE WEEKEND WHERE IT WILL BE IN THE 30'S-40'S IN THE CHICAGO AREA. NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT.

mom had quite the scare tonight. she was making dinner and dad was at the park with the dog. dad was waiting for a phone call from the vet so right in the middle of preparing the food the phone rang so mom dropped everything to answer it. it was the vet and mom and mom told the vet to call back in about 30 minute. then mom went back to preparing dinner. she had been reheating dinner rolls in the microwave and had taken the plastic microwave food warmer cover out and was placing it on the counter when the phone rang and had hurriedly thrown it down to answer the phone. well she hadn't turned off the one burner on the stove and the plastic cover was in the process of melting because one side of it was against the stove burner. all mom could think of was all my birds are going to die. she grabbed the melting cover, turned off the stove and went running out of the house with it. she was moving so quickly she tripped over one of the pet gates and almost broke her neck. she then put on the stove vent fan full blast and luckily since it was 72 outside she opened up all the sliding glass doors to air the room out. she had also unplugged the burner and taken that out on the porch as some of the plastic had melted on it. once the burner cooled mom then scrapped off the melted plastic which had hardened by this time.she then threw away all our dinners except dads. he said he didn't smell anything when he came in the house. mom hopes she acted fast enough and there aren't any lingering ill effects from this

  Hi Gus
We woke up to a frigid morning early here and then it warmed up quite nicely but the wind is still blowing out there,our temperatures were 68 as of a few minutes ago and she remembered to go out and collect all the garden ornaments and bring them inside the sun room for the winter.It almost felt like a warm spring afternoon out there,but its getting darker now as the sun is gone and the clouds are starting to take over and bring the rain we're supposed to have for tonight or tomorrow!
Mom is hurrying to get her chores done as she will be going out tomorrow with Nana on her errand run and won't be back until dinnertime and will be too tired to start anything then,she's got zumba class in the morning and will be bringing me with her again as I'm still on my meds and need to take them on time.
Mom made brownies and some gingerbread cake after she got her chores done and our car seat revamped for me to use it,she bought a basket in TJ Maxx that was marked down because it didn't have the suction cups to hang it up with,its for the bath or maybe kitchen to hold things and she spent the last half of the day trying to attach it to our car seat which she did and I seem to like it and she even got it pushed way over so that the rest of the flock can sit on the perch part of it!And all without pooping on me too!
Mom kept my skin bro's umbrella stroller from when he was a baby and she sometimes uses that for us also but I like my regular stroller with the screens in it so I too can check on my Mom and make sure she's still there and she loves to be able to check on me and make sure I'm still sitting on the perch!

  October BOTM POST number twenty-two
Hi everybirdie, Jesse here with your Too'sday BOTM Adventure Post. It's a greyt day with the Castle so close, and the BC lake and all these squawk-atiels flying by with birdie's blogs. We are so close to safety with makes a bird happy.
Spot yells as loud as his Tiel voice will allow him, and realizes that nobirdie can hear him. No birdie that is but Lizzie, the Dragon can. Dragon's are magical so she can hear Spot calling for help.
Spot thinks to himself, " I must get their attention that I'm here, I KNOW what to do! "Spot decides maybe he can touch the other birds! "If they can't hear me, or see me, maybe they can feel me!" He runs up to BB and touches her on the leg.
"Hey! whose messing with my leg! " Bb yells startled by the sudden touch. This gets Sky's attention and he runs over and looks around! He searches but nobirdie is there.
"I don't see anybirdy, BB. Maybe you imagined it! " Sky tells her, trying to calm her down.
Spot tugs on Jesse's tail and he yelps "Owwww! " Jesse whirls around quickly, but nobody is there.
Everybirdy starts looking for the invisible toucher!
Suddenly, Jenny says," hey, whoever it is just beat out Morse code for SOS! Now they're beating out "It's me Spot! I'm invisible!"
"Good grief, Spot! Well, come on, hold my wing and we'll go to the castle and figure this out" Spot reaches out and grasps Jenny-Lynn's wing, and holds on tight, afraid he'll be left behind.
Jesse frowns as he continues to walk towards the Castle. As he walks he thinks about his missing friends. "How could birdie's vanish inside a corn maze?"
"Jesse, we're almost to the Castle. Once we get help we'll go back to find Sugar, Cori, Cydney, Snowflake, Gus, Pepper, Apache, Sweetpepper and Pearl. We'll find them." Hulk says
"LOOK!" BonBon calls out, " I can see the Castle walls. SPOT, we'll be there soon, and we'll figure out how to make you visible again."
"I can see him" Lizzie tells Kaji and Gus.
"That's because you're a Magic Dragon Lizzie." Kaji tells her with a smile.
As they walk, Sky begins to think about the pickles he'll eat once he gets to the Castle and they find their friends. "I wish I had a pickle right now." "Phuuufffff. Sky turns into a Pickle"
BB screams, as she watches Sky change into a pickle. Just as she sees her Sky change, Chyna turns into a pair of comfortable shoes, Panther turns into an Army Tank, Kiddo changes into a magic wand, Dixie and Little Angel become a scooter. Everybirdie who made an "I wish..." had become what they had wished.
"OH NO!" BonBon cries "I wish I could see Spot right now" Spot appears before her. "Can you see me Spot?" BonBon asks.
"Of course I can" Spot says, hugging his fister, then remembering he isn't suppose to like her too much, he straightens up, " where'd all these things come from?"

  Hi Gus
Well, this morning's breakfast was full of fresh fruit just like yesterday. When Mom went by Trader Joe's on Sunday she picked up a package of mango, pineapple and papaya for us to share. I ate most of what she gave me yesterday, but today I just pulled it out of my dish and dumped it. Who knows why?

Mom is in a very good mood today, because her Redskins beat the Cowgirls (sorry Dallas fans, but Mom grew up in D.C. suburbs) last night in OT. It was a very exciting game with Colt McCoy the 3rd string QB starting. Turns out maybe he should be the back up to RGIII instead of Kirk Cousins.

For those of you who could care less about football, know that I had a lovely sunbath at 11:15 today and after we came inside at noon Mom fixed a tamale frozen lunch which also has a rice, corn and peas mixture with it. Nothing not to like in that!! And although a bit spicy, no ill effects on Mom's tummy. She is so stoked!!

  Hi Gus
It's way too soon for that ugly stuff to show up on lawns. Frost is bad enough. Hope the plumber is worth the wait.
It's a beautiful day today, when mom walked the dogs she got too warm in her jeans and came home to change into shorts. She is still wearing her squirrel whisperer tee, though, in honor of squirrels this month. Later today, mom will go out with her sister for a late lunch and a little shopping. Both of them got Barnes and Noble coupons in the mail, and since that's one of their favorite stores, they will go there, and maybe a few other places as well.
We need to have our cages scrubbed today, according to mom, so that means we'll be spending time rearranging things to our liking.
Mom got a pomegranate and cut into it today. It's too bad I won't eat it, Willie, Maxine, and Peppino dove right into their portions! (That's one of the reasons for the scrub down today, heehee.)
I hope you are enjoying some good weather today, and getting lots of scritches and cuddles, too. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Gus
It's Sawyer.
Yesterday was a nice day. Not to hot. Not too cold. Mom and dad worked at the police dept. and dad drove all day with the windows down. Dad's day started out slow. One of the things they have to do is get the patrol car washed if it's dirty. Dad sat at the car wash for 45 minutes waiting for the car to be finished. Then the day started to be boring. Dad had to check to make sure that the two way radio was turned on. There were just no calls. Then, around 3:30pm there was a traffic accident at the other end of the city from where dad was at. Dad got there as quickly as he could and set up traffic cones to re-rout traffic around the accident. But cars were coming down the hill way too fast and dad had to move the cones three times to give the cars enough time to slow down. Dad was actually afraid that they would run into the back end of his patrol car. Thankfully they didn't. The officers were able to take their reports and the tow trucks were able to safely take the cars away. That's why dad is out there. To help make the officers job a little easier.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 83 and a low of 60. Dad's going to cut up some of the grapefruit tree branches and mom's going to clean the last to cages.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

  Hi, Gus
Two grandfather clocks? Sounds like it takes awhile to get the time changed on 'em. None of those here. Mom's gpa had one but think it must've gone to the oldest son after both grandparronts had passed. Is there an actual cuckoo that comes out and announces the hour?

Guess if one were so inclined being a plumber would be a good profession. One of dad's nephews kinda fell into that. Not something he planned to do but got an apprenticeship to and kept at it. Good thing skinsis family has another bathroom and can wait a lil while for the broken one to be repaired.

Sure hope you and others on the east coast aren't seeing any of that dreaded four letter word that starts with the 19th letter of the alphabet.

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

  Hey Gus
I missed you too. The weather is treating us a lot better and we had an awesome cool down.
I just hope it stays this way.
My mommy is feeling better today after this weekend's horrible experience of injuring her bad shoulder more.
Today she is going back to WalMart to check out new Christmas tree decorations.
She heard there's lots more bird ornaments for the tree.

How's your weather ??? Rainy or Sunny ???

Have a good one !!!
Love your buddy

  Hey Gus !
I'm glad you got your card ! Mom tried to make the darling little owls that came with the tree work, but they were just too cute and didn't look like bats when she flipped them, so she put the tree sideways and used her owl punch.

It's Tuesday - mom's almost humpday - it will be in a couple weeks when her drama club starts up. Then she won't be getting home till after 5:00 !

We have a really nice day coming up - sunny and high 60's ! Of course by the weekend down into the 40's ! brrrr - that means my days of being near the window are drawing to a close - it's ok at night cause the drapes are drawn and my cage is covered - but once temps dip during the day my cage gets moved to the other side of the room and I don't get to yell at the kids getting the school bus :(

Have a good Tuesday - go see page 231616, Name That Tune, and see how many spooky Halloween songs you know ! love Cookie

Come visit me, Cookie - LOOK ! It's a BIRD !, BC Library Now Open & Fly with the angels my Sally.

  Hi Gus
I think that is a good idea ... take a pic of the autographs on the cast. Then she can toss the cast.
I'm sorry, I still think that is a long wait for a plumber. What if they only had one bathroom????
We heard tonight that we might get snow on Friday :(
We had really bad thunder booms and flashy lightnings for 5 hours! It started early when it was dark. I was scared cause the house was shaking. Then it was just a hard rain all day with another t-storm in the afternoon. Looks like late tonight until 6am we'll have more t-storms. I'm NOT liking this! How is a bird suppose to get a good sleep?

  Hi Gus
Mom and dad had a bad morning this morning as they woke up to the clocks flashing in their bedroom,some how in the night we lost our power and it was already 6:11am and dad was supposed to be up at 5:45am in order to get out on time!So Mom had to race downstairs and get the coffee maker all reset in order to get the coffee started.Then she set all the flashing clocks on the microwave,oven,etc.She threw together dad's lunch in his lunch cooler box and got the coffee finally poured into his thermos and his instant breakfast made and set on the table with vitamin.She hates those mornings with a big jolt to start off the day!
We awoke to another bright sunny day here with the temperatures at 61 now and if it wasn't for the breeze out there it just might be nice out there!
Mom spent the day cleaning and vacuuming the house as she couldn't do much yesterday and was too tired by the time skin sis left to go home!And of course we got a good cage scrubbing so now we have to go and chew the papers again and fix our cages the way we like them!Why can't we have our cages the way we like them?Sigh….
Oh how my Mom wishes she could've hung the clothes out on the line yesterday,she's going to do her sheets next weekend and hopes that she can at least get them out on the line!That must be some stinky cast that no matter how much you aired it out it stunk so badly!LOL!It seems that no matter when you call those plumbers they're always very busy and its always a long wait to get one to come!It sure is good that there are two other bathrooms skin sis can use and it would be awful if there wasn't any other bathrooms to compensate for the one that is down!We too are getting the nasty S word coming to some of our parts here also and we are so hoping its not us!Its way way too soon for the winter to start before it even gets here officially!
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 green ekkie friend,Love Dixie

  Hi Gus
Mom made it through training and all of zumba today.
Seems like that is what I can expect now....a whole hour of zumba after an hour with the trainer and me waiting at home. I am trying to convince her she doesn't need to go on Tuesdays, but we shall see if it works. Being cute and adorable and hard to leave is my strategy. Right now I am sitting on Mom's knee grinding my beak....it doesn't get any cuter than that, right?

We had pasta in marinara sauce for lunch. That is Mom's first shot at anything tomato since the surgery, and so far no heart burn. She is very optimistic that this really did cure the acid reflux.

And I got a very nice sunbath right after Mom's post-gym shower. It hit 81 here today, but I don't think it was that hot while we were outside. I never quibble about getting in my carrier anymore. Guess I finally realized that is the only way I am getting outside.

  Hi Gus
That's good news about the grand. You and Susan had fun at the milonga, and so did we.
What a football game yesterday! It was a real quarterback battle, and the Steelers tried to give it away in the second half, but they ultimately prevailed. Mom doesn't remember seeing such a high scoring pro game ever.
Today at the center, mom did all the RVS animals, because she was the only RVS person on the schedule for the day. She cleaned the outdoor raccoon cages, then went in to find the bat. At first she didn't see it, she peeked under the towels hanging from the sides of its terrarium and it wasn't there. Then she took out the tiny lid that was in the bottom of the cage with water in it. She was a little worried that the bat had escaped at this point. When she removed the water, she noticed a tiny lump in the towel at the bottom of the cage. She lifted it carefully, and the bat was there. It was laying directly on the heating pad, so the poor little one must have been cold last night. There was a frost here, but the furnace at the center usually kicks on. Maybe the heat didn't extend into the RVS room, or the bat just needed some extra heat. Anyway, it took a bit of effort to get it to start eating, but once it got started, it ate 20 mealworms. It's hard to imagine, but mom thinks with 20 mealworms you could probably construct a whole bat, so she doesn't know where the bat puts all that food. Maybe they have hollow legs or something, heehee.
If you think we birds eat a lot, you haven't seen bats eat.
After the center, mom mailed a package, then got gas and went shopping for a little lunch. Now she's home with us, and we get to blog. It's another beautiful day here, crisp and cool, but sunny. The lawn guys came today and cleaned up all the leaves, so the lawn looks as nice as the gardens do now.
I hope you are having a good day, getting some sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  October BOTM POST number twenty-one
Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with your Monday BOTM Adventure Post It was awesome to see so many of our friends at the Haunted Castle Tour Milonga on Saturday evening. We had a frightfully good time.
Sky scrambles up the ladder after the others are all safely together on the wide road above. Looking around carefully he sees that it indeed appears to be the road that leads tot he castle, the help in finding the others who are missing and Lizzie's kitchen, and an endless supply of pickles.
"Ok Jesse, let's get moving, we need to get to the Castle and get the Macaw guards. If we come back soon as we can, we'll all be a safely home by nightfall" Sky says encouragingly
BonBon tugs on Jesses wing! "Uncle Jesse? Are we gonna find Spot now?"
"We're sure to find him and all the others and if not, George the Tiger will help us find them!"
"OK," says BonBon, a little mollified.
Sky picks her up and says, "come on little one! You'll be safe with me!" Off they go down the wide road! Sky stops to pick up Dixie and L'il Angel, placing them onto his other shoulder. With the Castle so close everybirdie feels much happier and certain that all will be ok in the end.
"We should be at the Castle really soon. The Squawk-atiels are flying past more often now, we're definitely heading in the right direction." Jenny-Lynn exclaims
Spot hears the sound of the others in the distance and gets up from beneath the tall oak tree. He'd done what his Momma Rea had always told him to do if he got lost, " stay where you are until I find you" He was relieved to know that the others would be there soon, and he'd be safely back with his friends. He listens and can hear his Poppa Sky, Jenny-Lynn and even his fister BonBon. He smiles knowing she's so worried about him. "I know she'll never admit it" he says to himself.
"Come on everyone, let's hurry, the sooner we arrive at the Castle the faster we find help in locating our missing friends, and my wife-bird Sweetpepper" Kiddo calls out as he hurries to keep up to Jesse.
Spot watches as in the distance the group of friends grows closer and closer. He decides he should head their way and rejoin them and having made the decision heads off towards the south. Spot quickens his pace as the group grows nearer to him. He begins to call out, trying to get their attention.
"Did you hear something?" Lizzie asks Willie, " I'm sure I just hear something."
Willie looks in the direction Lizzie points, but seeing nothing he shakes his head, " No, maybe you thought you heard something Lizzie. No one's there."
Lizzie frowns. She is pretty sure she'd heard someone calling out for help. She walks along, listening to hear the voice again. "THERE!" she says, hearing Spot calling once more. Willie looks once more, still seeing nothing. "Lizzie, you're hearing things"
Spot calls out again, but no one, except Lizzie looks in his direction. "They can't hear me!"

  Morning Gus dear, from Jenny Lynn
So far all of dad's family visits have been fabulous, it is amazing how much one can learn from their own childhood and young adult life from the view of one's siblings! They are all in good health and very happy, and that is a blessing within itself! We all spoke of our beloved mother and her soft gentle nature, we all drew our wisdom and strength for her! Dad has one more go-around with them today, then back to normal once again! We are having a very warm day, in the upper 70's, have a great Monday and give my love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

Love always from Jenny, dad, and our family
