  Hi Gus
Mom went up to the pool around 5 and there was nobody there, the doors were closed. Hope they are open today.
Today mom did the recovery room, and got to move 2 goslings into the runs, into a bigger cage and set them up. They are so cute! The smallest gosling stayed in the Recovery room, though, with a quail, pigeon, and some turtles. Mom also did the main aviary today. They separated the pigeons from everyone else in there, so mom had to be careful to keep the outdoor birds separate from the indoor ones. Inside there are starlings, robins, doves, and a jay. There are also 6 crows in there but they have their own wooden aviary set up inside the main aviary. Mom also had the 20 minute timer again, so she was running in and out of the avian nursery to feed the smallest hatchlings every 20 minutes too. It was a pretty busy morning.
When she got home, she watered all the containers with plants, and set up the fountain. It looks finished in the yard now. She transplanted some cleomes that sprouted up in the cracks in the front walk, too. None of the ones she planted a week or so ago have come up, but these are up and thriving!
Hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Gus Cuss, from a friend that loves you-Jen Lynn
Our future mom called dad the other evening, and as usual her voice lit up our mundane little home, she is such a peach, very much like our aunt Eileen! They talked about the sad day when I will go live with RB, Kelley, and my old friend Art Alex! It will be an adjustment, but I can wait! Dad does not feel very well again today so he will be cutting back a little bit, he is not sick, just don't feel good, you all have had that feeling before! TGIF as they say, and please give our love to all in your Friday home, see ya tomorrow...

Forever love from Jennifer, & my Dallas family

It's Sawyer.
Mom and dad both worked at the police dept. yesterday. For dad it was the first time back since being sick. He said it felt good to get back into the swing of things.
Dad picked up his framed picture from Aaron Brothers and said it looked professional. Well DUH! It WAS professional!
Today will be foggy, with a high of 85 and a low of 61. Mom may work at the police station again but dad has things to do around the house.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,

  Hi, Gus
If your mom has crocheted the tops before then it wouldn't be too hard for her to knit a top. Just keep looking at patterns for ideas and do check out books for beginners on making tops. Did she ever finish that hat?

BC is much the same but the error of missing blogs and pics doesn't occur every time. Still annoying as so automatic to vote once arrive at a page and often do want to glance at blogs before sending one.

At least you got some sun even if the sheets missed out, lol.

  Hey buddy
TGIF ! Although it's supposed to still be warm today, the humidity is supposed to be lower so there should be some relief from this very summer like weather . . .

Yesterday there was a really neat assembly at school for mom. The guys name was Patrick Dunning and he's a multimedia artist. He's working on this massive piece called the SignatureProject made all of signatures - and now mom's is one of them ! After school, she had the nerve to go to dinner with a friend and leave me and daddy to eat on our own ! And she didn't even bring home a birdie bag ! ! ! On top of that, when did she get home ? Tucking in time - of course that's good news, cause as you all know, daddy is not a very good tucker-inner . . .

Happy Friday - just think by Monday it'll be June ! Love Cookie

No, mom hasn't been on a horse in over 30 years now. Dad isn't big on horses. She used to do pretty good with the horse shows. She still misses it but would be scared to do that now (she was young and healthy then). She almost went riding last summer ... maybe this year?
The black bears have always lived here. They just usually don't come that close to the houses. He visited two neighbors and us ... that we know of.
We had a nice day. It seems that we get one nice day and then 5 or more cold, rainy and nasty days.
Our internet crashed last night, so now I play catch-up! I just found out that we are moving! Yes, the house will be up for sale next week. We are moving to Port Charlotte Florida. Dad hopes we will be there by Christmas. I will have to get more swimsuits and fancy flip flops! Soon, you will find me next to the pool-perch getting sun on my feathers.

  Hi Gus
mom put me in the lilac bush again today and while she was standing there holding my leash she noticed a big round thing laying in the yard. she picked me up off the branch and we walked over to inspect it. it was a birds nest laying there. it was very well made with twigs tightly woven on the bottom and the middle had plastic bubble wrap woven into hardened mud. on top of that were more tightly woven twigs. the nest itself wasn't damaged and must have fallen out of a tree. there were no egg shells or baby feathers or anything laying around it so hopefully no eggs had been layed yet or if they had it was long before it fell and everyone hatched and grew up.

HEY GUS, SOUNDS LIKE YOUR MOM WAS PLAYING RAIN ROULETTE WITH THE SHEETS. THE WEATHER DOESN'T SEEM TO WANT TO CO-OPERATE.

WE HAD A MOST WONDERFUL DAY HERE. THE SUN WAS OUT AND THERE WAS THE PERFECT BREEZE. SO KACEY AND I GOT SOME SUNBATHING IN FOR 40 MINS. THE ONLY DOWNSIDE WAS THE NEIGHBOR HAD STANLEY STEAMER OVER TO DO HER CARPETS. THE TRUCK WAS SO VERY NOISY. I WNATED TO HEAR THE BIRDS, NOT THE CARPET CLEANING TRUCK.

You are so right about trying to get from one page to another and with all the disappearing blogs,votes,and pictures you can't tell if the bird it was going to ever got it at all!
Mom wants to do her sheets on Sunday but it looks like its going to be a real downpour here!So now Mom will have to hold the sheets in the basket til the next good day that she can do laundry and get it on the line again!Your dad is so funny but he's right Mom's done that also,put the sheets up then takes the sheets down then puts them up again only to relent and throw everything in the dryer!What a pain but you sure can call it dancing for sure up and down the stairs a million times!
This morning is a grey dark dismal,dreary day here with the temperatures highs for the day being 70 the lows being 58,right now its 66 degrees and cold with the wind blowing hard again out there.We are supposed to get rain sometime today.Mom has the heat box on just to chase the chill out of the house.Mom got us all up,fed us our warm bean mix and cleaned our cages and room.Then she gathered all the trash downstairs to get ready to take to the dump tomorrow along with Nana's things and all the recyclables.She'll be vacuuming the house after she gets some of our blogs done and then figure out what she'll be doing for dinner tonight.Other than that its a quiet boring day here which we like as we get Mom home with us all day long.
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!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

Well, I have added a new category to the pics for the Renaissance Faire Milonga Picture Contest: entertainers. As many of you will know, there are always strolling jugglers, dancers and magicians at these things, and one look at Willie and Peppino's pics pointed out to me I had missed this whole area. Also it will be Ladies & Wenches, plus Knights and Gents. Don't forget to put your entries on the Milonga page like Falco's flock and SweetPepper have done.

Well, I do love Thursdays. Mom doesn't go to the gym, and that's fine by me. We got outside for a sunbath a little after 11 and didn't come back inside until just before noon when it was getting a little too warm for Mom (high of 78 here today). My feathers are glowing!

And Mom's feathers are different too. After we came inside she went to the bathroom to color them. I am not allowed to be with her during this process, something about fumes. So I cried pitifully the whole time, because I knew she was home. Don't worry. As soon as she was done she rejoined me, and we shared another serving of enchilada pie for lunch. There was deep dish blueberry pie for dessert, because Mom baked yesterday. Doesn't get much better than that! I do love me some cooked blueberries.

You're right about that, BC is frustrating when it's slow.
Today was mom's last day at the museum for at least a week, she thinks. She's not on schedule for next week, but if her boss needs a fill in, she'll go to work. Next week will be the last really busy week for the year, then it should quiet down for summer camps and lazy summer days. She had 6th grade in animal adaptations today, and most of them paid attention.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Gus buddy
Happy Thursday to all my friends. Sweetie here once more with our BOTM blog. I did miss yesterday as momma Deb was called upon at a moments notice to help out with a rather difficult birdie related situation. All went well, and it has a happy, satisfactory ending. Today we get all Momma's attention and she promises extra treats for everybirdie who was so well behaved yesterday when our friend King Mikey D's Momma helped get us ready for bed.
Our month is quickly coming to an end. We have shared some very timely and sensitive issues and discussion and I truly hope each of us has learned a little or a lot from one another's experiences. A life with a Companion Parrot is never dull, never ordinary and certainly never boring. No two species are alike, and among like species we each have our own extraordinary individuality and quirks. Some of us are as bold as a lion, others as shy as a mouse, yet we all possess the inherit ability to melt our Parront's heart, worm our way into their every thought and garner their love and respect. I wish that this description was universal, and it grieves my little Blue-Fronted Amazon heart that at this very moment, Parrots are suffering untold neglect, abuse or worse death at the hands of mankind. Never did my Momma Deb in her wildest thoughts think she would ever be writing as a Companion Parrot Advocate. That she would be one of the ones to stand up against our mistreatment and to put up the fight for our rights. Life has a way of changing suddenly, and if we allow it, it can transform a one time breeder into a Parrot Spokesperson.
I am only one Parrot, but I want to encourage each of you to take the challenge to become a Companion Parrot Ambassador. Never doubt your ability to bring about change. Whether you are a "get in your face" type, or a "quiet, shier one at a time" personality type we ALL can make a difference. Just imagine if every bird loving Parront spoke to just one person about life with a Parrot, about proper care, feeding or even shared what it is like to be owned by one of us, the impact would be fantastic. We could make change, stop improper selection of species for first time would be Parronts, change how one Parrot is treated, or how it is viewed within it's own family situation. We might open a cage door closed for years, allow a Parrot to begin to enjoy better food, have room to move in it's cage at last, find out how much fun a toy can be, or receive the Veterinarian care it needs and deserves. You would be shocked at how many do not know that their Parrot should be seen by a Veterinarian regularly. The number who feel a Parrot only needs peanuts and sunflower seeds. We need YOUR voice to make change happen.
NOW FOR TODAY"S QUESTION: It is not a question at all. Please continue to share YOUR special MOMENT(S) with your fids with us. They are interesting, educational and encouraging to read. Your experience might make a difference for someone else too.

It's Sawyer.
The BC is working strange for us, too.
Dad finally got the hose replaced on the sprinklers. Now, they all seem to be working fine. Dad also got two of the three pictures mounted in their frames. The third one held two pictures and dad worked on it for ever and got no where. He ended up taking the frame and photos Back to Aaron Brothers and they are doing it for him. Meanwhile, mom went to the police station to work for a while.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 83 and a low of 58. Mom and dad may both work at the police dept. today.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

Thanks for celebrating with us. Always fun at the castle.

This may date us a bit but mom is reminded this morning of an old Johnny Cash song - Five Foot High And Rising ... thinking about the wall of water coming into the city real soon. This is a slow moving system and its going to cause more flooding ... sure wish mom could have stayed home from work ... then again we always wish that lol.

  Hi, Gus
Yup, mom recently knit the three washcloths. The music note is for gpa's father's day gift. Dad gave the airplane one to a retired pilot friend. She tried to take the pic to show the design and that's why added the name to help. Is currently knitting a couple of patriotic themed cloths.

Hmmmm, if your mom is better at crochet she should check out patterns for crochet tops. Her sis finally figured out how to make her own since she crochets fairly well. There should be plenty of patterns out there for beginners.

We continue to have invisible blogs and galleries. However, everything is usually there when we first get to a page so we have to look before voting or blogging. Haven't had any issues with logging on, slow loading pages, etc so hopefully it isn't getting worse. This has been going on for a while and hope the fix it soon.

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

BP is remaining constant, blood sugars are good for his age, and he continues to slowly loose weight, that is hard to do, he loves almost all food, but no longer in mass quantities!

Weird, weird weather yesterday ! Hot, humid and icky sticky sunny all day - then around 4:30, it starts raining . . . with the sunshine ! Then it stopped raining and got dark as midnight for about an hour !
Still hot though, usually a storm will cool it off . . . so of course I squawked for my tub to take a bath ! Then even though it was time to cook, mom didn't want to put the a/c on till I was dry - no chilly quaker in this house !

20 days to go - should be 17 - June 22, 23, 24 are three half days tagged onto the end to make up for snow days this past winter . . .

Mom really likes "Over the Rainbow" on p21, "Timeless Love" on 29, and the "Circle of Spring" on 77 - she needs to do a paper inventory before making up an order - probably sometime right after school ends. BTW, she did clean out over the weekend and as soon as she finds a box, she'll get it mailed out. If there's anything aunt Jinky doesn't like, or already have, I know she'll find a good home . . .

Happy Thursday :) love Cookie

  Hi Gus, my love
I like corn and mom got some today when she was out grocery shopping today.

She has now decided that she wants a little red wagon to help her in her gardening. She thinks she cab hook it up to the back of her chair when she is out trimming her roses. She needs something to put all the trimmings in. She saw on in WalMart but it wasn't quiet what she was looking for, it was bigger and had two seats in it for kids so it wouldn't work. Dad told her to look on craigslist so she is going to try that, she can get one online if needed.

It was in the 80s here today but unfortunately it looks like race day could be in the 90s...way to hot for May.

Mom is still working on trying to get that video but so far Scooby is not being very co-operative when the camera is on...lol

I loved watching you race and it was lots of fun going out to that restaurant called Anthony's.

This morning was a dark grey and very windy day with our highs for the day of 73 and the lows of 61,its 68 right now at 7:00pm and it feels so cold because of that awful wind.Mom fed us all and cleaned our cages and then she loaded the car with all the donation stuff she had cleaned out from the tv room closet and got in the car and took off.She stopped at the donation place first,the Mashpee Senior Center and unloaded the car and had to take it inside the building all the way to the back of the store by herself.It took her six trips back and forth as the boxes and the big huge garbage bags were so heavy.Then from there she went to Nana's and she and Nana went to our Papa's grave,(Nana's husband,Mom's dad)at the National Cemetery.There were thousands of flags everywhere on all the graves and there were several new graves there since the last time Mom was there and they were digging another new grave while Mom and Nana put the Rhododendron flower on Papa's grave.The grass was soaking wet and Mom got her feet all wet walking the distance to find the gravesite.Then from there they went to Market Basket and Mom and Nana were trying hard not to overdo it and spend too much money there.Mom got only the things she needed and there were several good markdowns she got there but no good grill meat that she could afford.Then from there they went to our house so Mom could drop off all the frozen foods she had and her other groceries and to pick Dixie up.Then they went back to Nana's house to drop off all her frozen groceries and groceries and then they went to Roche Bros grocery to find something to eat for lunch,(it was now after 3:30pm)but found nothing there to eat,then they went to Stop&Shop and found fresh corn on the cob and some other groceries,then from there they went back to Nana's house where Nana made them a salad with bruschetta.It was after 4:30 by the time they had lunch.Then Mom helped clean up and packed Dixie up and went home to make dinner for dad,it was 6:30pm by the time she got home and had to put all the groceries away and clean our cages(Dad had already given us our snacks),and she was so tired she just gave Dad a frozen dinner,it was too late to start cooking anything big.By the time Mom got done with everything it was 7:30pm.Now she can finally start our blogs for us!
I'm so frustrated with how BC is going,its been taking us so long to get one blog done and all the votes don't go through and the blogs disappear along with all the pictures when you hit the send button!How awful that the sun comes out after your poor Mom puts all the sheets and laundry in the dryer!That would figure!

Well, I finally got a good sunbath, and it was worth waiting for. Mom and I went outside right after lunch and it was perfect. (Yeah, I got Mom to eat!!) She brought out her book and two nutriberries, so it was a very satisfying sit in the sun.

And as I wend my way around BC today, I am starting to see some nice pics for the Milonga Renaissance Faire contest, but nobirdy has actually entered their pics on the Milonga page #165848. Please be sure to do that, and you will want to list your page # when you do. We can accept more than one bird from a flock, but living birds only, please. So far it looks like the categories are: Knights, Ladies, Couples, Warriors (who aren't knights) and Humorous. Entries will be accepted through midnight EDT 6/15, and voting will begin on the 16th through the 25th to allow time for counting and creating awards before the Milonga on the 27th.

  Hi Gus
Mom had an evolution tour with 7th grade folks today. It was a lot of fun, but it's hard to get that information done in one hour! They started with the fossils in the main hallways, then went into some Paleozoic and Mesozoic areas. By the time they got to Cenozoic, the time was up!!! Mom knew they had another hour on their own, so she suggested they look at the mammals in cenozoic, and go to the second floor to see modern mammals, and hit the third floor for birds. It's too bad they don't schedule 1 1/2 or 2 hour tours for that subject, though. The teacher with the group asked mom if she could schedule her family for a tour with a docent, so mom gave her information and told her to get in touch with visitor services.
It started out rainy this morning, but it sure looks pretty now. Maybe mom will get to the pool this afternoon, just for a little while. They open late this week and next, so if she goes, it will just be for a little while before dinner.
I hope you are having a great sunshine filled day, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hi Gus
It's Sawyer.
Mom and dad saw a very good movie yesterday, for free movie day. It's called "The Longest Ride". Mom and dad both enjoyed it.
After the movie mom and dad went shopping AGAIN. They went to Target, Walmart, BevMo and Sprouts. Oh, and dad went to Lowe's for a replacement hose for the sprinklers, which he forgot to install when he got home.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 78 and a low of 58. Dad's going to try framing some pictures.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

Come visit me, ALEX, POPEYE, SAWYER, BLUE & JEWEL, GINGER & CALICO.

  Hi Gus,
HAPPY HUMP DAY!!!

*I am letting all of my BC friends know that on Chipper's page, there is an avatar for the Warriors team in the aviary. It's the blue box that says "Warriors." You can use this to get to the team page. Some of the birdies said they have used it and it makes it a lot easier! I also want to thank everybirdie who has been voting for our team so we can make the 10K. We really do appreciate all of your support!

Hope you're having a good week!! Left a vote for you.

Your friend,
Chipper

Come visit me, ***Chipper--VOTE WARRIORS FOR 10K***.

  Hi Gus
I think Texas and Oklahoma is well on their way to becoming swampland lol. We had more rain and hail last night and more weather expected the rest of the week. Its very humid out there this morning and the fog was something to see or actually not see lol. When mom walks in the yard or even on her paving stone walkway the ground squishes ... maybe I can come up with a squish song? LOL. Gotta run, have a great day. V4U. Hugs.
Love Dory

PS: Come on by the castle and join the party ... we have cake and ice cream!

Come visit me, Captain (Cappy), Rudy, Dory & Dixie.

  Hi, Gus
When you look at what the two sides of a basic knit top entails know that it really isn't that difficult if know the basic knit and purl stitches. When looking online or at books can see how the different colors and yarns look. Can get lots of inspiration and ideas.

The parronts had more burgers yesterday and maybe more hot dogs today. Otherwise it goes into the freezer for a future meal. Same with the buns as they'll never use 'em all up otherwise.

Mom does the same when stores move things around. They do it to get one to walk more of the aisles as might get tempted to buy more things.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

Some have asked about my photo. In this photo I am on a birdie-dish having a treat:
"Flitzer Coffee" A touch of coffee with a drop of milk and whipped cream. It is a favorite treat.
The Soy Sauce behind me is simply where Dad keeps it, as he uses Soy instead of Salt when he is cooking.

Monday evening, Dad shared a favorite movie on DVD "AFTER HOURS" (1985 directed by Martin Scorsese). It's a very "different" dark comedy.

Hot n muggy this week -preparing us for the Summer ahead.

  Morning buddy !
Happy Humpday ! Yesterday was a hot and Icky sticky day - thank goodness they put a/c in the classrooms a few years back ! Good thing - sweaty 4th graders STINK ! Mom even turned ours on last night while she was cooking. Today is supposed to be the same except with thunderboomers - hope they are AFTER recess !

Mom's been busy working on some note cards for her classmoms' end of year gift - you know how I love when she makes mistakes ? I get them ! ! All those lovely scraps of paper become mine ! So I had a great afternoon yesterday ;) So did aunt Jinky find anything she liked in the new catalog ?

Hope you have a good day - love Cookie (21 - wow ! when did the grands start school that they're finishing so soon ? We were supposed to be 18, but they had to tack 3 half days onto the end to make up for snow days)

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

  Hi Gus
it must have been a giant eagle. the store plans for all the stores must have been designed by a man who never shops for groceries. you might also find things you have been buying for years are no longer carried because the man who designs the floor plans for the stores but never shops there doesn't know what they are so he discontinues them.

love Cori
