  Hey Gus,
Beach Day 1

A long awaited rest and relaxation is about to begin. . . . . . . . .
Well it’s a Tooseday and everyone is off to a good start. Kaji and Chipper found a beach ball and are playing air volley ball. Chipper bounces it to Kaji and he tries to bump it with his beak but instead punctures it. Now it is stuck on his beak, all deflated. He had forgotten that he sharpened his beak on the lava rock cave when they were all stuck. Chipper tries to pull it off his beak but its stuck in there good. Sugar sees what happened and comes running to help Chipper. Okay on three. One, two three pull!!! Boing!! Chipper and Sugar have fallen back from the weight of their pull. Finally Kaji says! Okay no more air volleyball for me!! He stomps away and gets his boogie board, I’m gonna join Pookie, Dixie, and Cookie in the water. Sugar and Chipper look at each other and start laughing… hehehehehehhe heheheheh hehehehehehe

The sleepy huts, birdie hammocks and tree perches in front of the bonfire pit are all ready for the birdies to be comfy and cozy for the first nights R & R stay.
No spooky stories tonight as I want every birdie to have a nice and restful nights sleep.

It’s lunch time and everyone catches the whiff of the bread baking on the Bar-B-Q fire pit and it smells heavenly. Everyone’s nares lifts their head up to see the direction the smell is coming from. Now everyone’s tummy is letting them know it’s time to eat something. Mom has made samiches with the freshly baked bread. Pookie and Dixie paddle back in as soon as they smell the bread baking. It’s not ready yet, wait for everyone okay? Okay then Pookie and Dixie wave to everyone to come in so that they all can start eating. There is pickles, and olives on the side. Fresh lettuce, tomato, cucumbers, sprouts and cheese for the samiches. Pookie and Dixie make a double decker submarine samich that looks bigger than them. Their eyeballs is bigger than their tummy! Pearl, Cori, Gus, Hulk, BooBoo and the rest of the gang come running up the beach when they smell the food. Our tummies were right! It’s time to eat! There’s chips and dip and veggies to choose from so help yourself. Tweetie-kins is still hanging on to Silver like an Opihi suction cup. I guess I’ll feed you when I get my plate, huh okay?

The bad budgies are still playing on the beach making a moat pool in the sand. They are laughing as they want to catch some birdie not paying attention. So they cover the pool with light leaves and leave a piece of donut on top. Waiting like a lion hunting its prey.

Stay tuned for the next episode of As The BC Turns, the Saga continues.

Here’s a vote for you my sweet friends.

Love & Hugs,

Pookie and friends

  hey Gus !
Tooosday already ! We've got rain ALL week long ! Not all day, but part of every single day ! YUCK ! It's already wrecking havoc on mom's sinuses . . . she ended up taking something and heading to bed early - she's still hoping it's not that early fall cold she gets every year.

Mom's long day today so I'll be working on my new toys - and maybe catching a nap till she and daddy get home. If she still feels yucky, she'll send daddy out for take-out tonight. No cooking (or cleaning up !).

Slow news day today - but you know what they say - no news is good news ! ! Glad aunt Jinky liked the card ! love Cookie

  Hey Gus,
Well, it’s a Monday and happy day!! We are all safe and sound and I think it’s time we all had some fun in our life since we came close to a very uneggspected turn of events.
In our birdie lifetime it’s too short to be stuck in a cave, even with an earthquake going on, it was sure scary and so so nerve racking, feather shaking, pin feathery irritating!
But this week, we are all going to celebrate life. This is how good and better it’s gonna get. We are staying at the beach for a whole week long. The parronts are setting up the tents, sleepy huts, birdie hammocks, wood perches by the bonfire pit, and all around the best time for all us. Being that we all went through some hard times being stuck, we are gonna be free to do what we want to. So, who’s with me??? Everyone shouts, me!!! Yay!! Yay!!! Yay!!!!

Okay let’s do this!!! Everyone chips in and helps pack the truck and trailer as we have a lot to move. Camping out at the beach for a week, that’s a lot of stuff and food too.
Mom is gonna be baking fresh break on the Bar-B-Q pit, that should be interesting. Dixie says I can just imagine how warm and soft the bread will be. I bet we can all smell it too from way on the beach to down to the water. The smell of food will be bringing us in to eat, that’s for sure! Pookie says yeah I hear ya buddy!

The truck and trailer is loaded and every birdie hops in with their sand tools, floaties, boogie boards, surfboards and tire tubes. Don’t forget the sun screen yells mom. You know how you all get!! We don’t want any red birds, unless they are already red. Ehehhehehehehehhe The cooler is full of ice with every kind of juice and water bottles galore. Mom also packed the fresh fruit which she will cut up before serving so that it doesn’t turn color. Fresh is the motif this weekend and what a ball we will all have. Dad has kabobs galore too and I’m sure he has something special for BooBoo and Officer Sequoia too. Bug kabobs. BooBoo is licking her beaky just the thought of teriyaki bugs on a stick. Hmmmmm

Stay tuned for the next episode of As The BC Turns, the Saga continues.

Here’s a vote for you my sweet friends.

Love & Hugs,

Pookie and friends

  Hi Gus
Mom and I sure do hope that Aunt Jinky will be able to find the butternut squash soup where you are!Its just sooo good,even I love it which is saying something!It looks like we just might have another week with BC.Now if only they can forget about dumping us we'll have it made,just think we were supposed to be dumped back in mid summer and here it is nearly October and we're still here!How awesome you are still able to get outside for a sunbath!We only wish we can have just one more day to enjoy the warm sunshine before we're locked in the house for the long long cold winter!Mom and I just think its so funny that whenever Aunt Jinky uses the sweeper you go and take a bath in your water bowl!
This morning was a bright sunny day with the highs for the day of 64 the lows of 46.We woke up to a morning that was frigid and cold with the temperatures of 42 degrees.Mom got dad off to work and then she sewed dad's winter hat and then scrubbed the bathrooms and just as she was going to start vacuuming she got a call from Nana that she blew her fuses in the Bird Room.Nana had put the heat box on for Bella and Trixie and and started to vacuum their room and that's when the fuse blew out.Mom quickly finished the bathrooms and got in her car and went over there and on the way over a car flew out of a side street and nearly hit Mom but a nano second making Mom swerve over to the side of the wooded area across the street,Mom was a shaking wreck all the rest of the way over to Nana's.When Mom got there she went down cellar to check Nana's circuit breaker box and pushed all the switches on the breaker box that went with all the rooms that were out,part of the kitchen(the stove worked but the lights didn't)the front hall light and the light upstairs to the loft,the bird room and the part of the cellar where the breaker box was.Mom kept running up and down stairs just checking to see if anything would come on.Then back down stairs to see if she could move those switches again and maybe they would work but they didn't.After a few hours Mom had to give up,there was nothing she could do,Mom felt bad that she couldn't help Nana and my dad said that Mom had done everything he would've done also to get it to work.Nana is going to have to call an electrician in the morning.Nana made Mom and herself lunch of a salad,potato salad,seafood salad and a fruit bowl and some hot tea which felt good on a cold day.Mom left Nana's a little after 3:00pm and as she was carefully backing out of Nana's yard,an idiot going 90 mph flying down the street in a big truck nearly hit Mom.He leaned on the horn at Mom!I don't think it was Mom's day to be out in a car at all,twice in one day is really bad.Mom was so nervous driving all the way back home again.She was happy to be back in the garage and out of the car.When she got home she had to quickly find something for dad's dinner and finish putting the sewing stuff away that she was going to work on.Mom came into see us and cleaned our cage

  Hello Gus~
Hope you had a fun day!! It was warmer here also. Not too bad but we did open the windows and patio door. There is a nice breeze so that helps.
It's National Pancake Day so I had pancakes for breakfast. They were good! I always love it when we have pancakes.
We did a few chores today and mom spent a lot of time working with McKenzie. She is getting a bit better on the leash but still tries to jump on everyone she sees and nips when she is playing. Hopefully it won't take too long for her to stop that! She just gets so excited!
Tonight we will relax and maybe watch a movie. There is popcorn so I think that would be a great idea!!
You enjoy your evening also!

  hi Gus and aunt Jinky
Happy Monday :) Even though it won't be very happy for me . . . back to school for the folks :( At least I have new toys to play with while they're gone - and maybe a nice nap. I had a really fun day yesterday - presents, popcorn and a movie in the afternoon, corn on the cob with my supper, and then a strawberry ! Best of all though, was everyone staying home and playing with me ! Mom did run to Wallyworld for batteries since the tv remote died, but that was it -

Now it's cold ! It was our first extra blanket night this fall - down into the high 30's - and only reaching 70 any day this week. Some areas not too far north of us had frost advisories ! No wonder mom is waking up with a scratchy throat ! Lucky you getting a sunbath ! I have a feeling mine are done with till spring . . .

Have a wonderful Monday ! love you - Cookie

  to eat most of his bean mix and butternut squash.We all got an animal cracker for a snack.Mom cleaned up the kitchen and put all the condiments away and skin sis helped a little.Mom gave skin sis some containers of bean mix for Peepers and Celine to take home.The skin sibs didn't leave til after 6:00pm and Mom cleaned our cages out for the night and then ran upstairs to take a nice hot shower.Now we are waiting for our snuggle time with Mom.Mom is debating on whether or not to put the heat box on in the TV room.It was really way too cold today!

  Hi Gus
Mom and I sure hope you find the soup in your grocery stores there as it is simply the best butternut squash soup ever!That is a greyt idea that Aunt Jinky will give the grands the albums when they graduate so they will be mature enough to care for them and treasure them like they should be!How wonderful that you got to have a sunbath today it looks like our sunbaths are over here now!I sure am so happy that I have my bird warmer and Candida has her thermal perch.We too had toes of ice this morning,it was just way too cold tonight also!
This morning was a bright sunny but freezing morning here with the highs for the day of 62 the lows of 46.Right now its a freezing 54 degrees with the winds blowing.Last night it got down to the low 40's.After Mom got dad off to work,she felt the house was so cold she caved and put the heat box on for us and that felt so good warming up our room nicely.Mom is waiting to put the other heat box on in the TV room until she can't stand it anymore.It feels like we have a/c on here full blast its so cold!Mom got us up when our room was warm enough and cleaned our cages and brought us our bean mix,and then swept the room.Then she went out and made dad his sandwiches for the week.She has to do laundry but she will wait for a day that's not so cold and windy,she's hoping to get at least one more time to hang the clothes out on the line before she has to use the dryer.Mom is going to get the hamburgers ready for the grill this afternoon as both sibs want a BBQ and this may be the last one we will have for the season,Mom will be out there in the cold and wind grilling,but she can keep warm by standing close to the grill with her hoodie on!Unfortunately we won't be going outside to join them this time again,we never got outside yesterday because it was so cold,it looks like our decking days are over and dining out days are gone now.Mom will try and vacuum before the skin sibs get here and then she'll be busy grilling and cleaning up until tonight when she will be able to snuggle with us.
UPDATE: Mom had the BBQ and both skin sibs came over,skin bro came first and stayed an hour then he had to go back to work but he was back promptly about an hour later to join everyone for the bbq.Mom was grilling when he pulled into the driveway and skin sis came before that with Peepers and Celine.It was way too cold and windy for any of us to be out there so we had to stay inside.While they were outside enjoying their burgers and hot dogs,(Mom made thin sliced turkey cutlets on the grill and she had that)a hummingbird came by and landed on the wires above their head.And a new kind of bird showed up at our feeder,Mom looked in the bird book and it looks like some kind of towee. It never came up to the feeder only ate from the ground with all the other starlings and grackles.Mom kept warm by the grill and then they decided to go inside and we got to come out and play on the dining room table and get our snacks there.It took Dixie all day

  Hello Gus~
Hope you guys had a great Sunday. It was lovely here. We didn't do a lot today. Mom is off for the next four nights! No plans yet but there are still lots of chores that need to get done around here. Tonight I think all mom wants to do is get some sleep so she has enough energy to get things done!hehehe
We are so sorry your mom still has pain. It's awful! We sure hope it goes away quickly!
It is so cool that your mom's family live in the same area. Mom's paternal grandparents had passed before mom was born also. Her maternal grandfather also. She heard lots of stories about them when she was little. It's was nice for her to know what they were like.
Enjoy your evening!

  Hi Gus & Angel ChiChi!
It must be beautiful up there when the leaves start changing! My mom misses the leaves in the fall. Not the cold weather though! Yesterday it was 98 in town and 92 at our house. We had a big thunderstorm last evening and again this afternoon. It is still drizzling out and the mosquitos are fierce!
Mom worked in the mural again today while we were outside on the porch watching the rain! She also made brownies for dad and they watched golf on tv. There was a sudden death finish which was very eggs-citing!
Tomorrow they are going to Ford to do paperwork and maybe come home with our new car. We haven't had a new car in 13 years and since mom has to become a permanent resident here, we can no longer have a car with US plates legally and customs wouldn'T let the truck get nationalized so it has to be shipped back to the US and sold! Our car is in dad's name and he has been a permanent resident for several years so it has been here illegally for quite some time. It is so old, it wasn't worth it to ship back to sell so the mechanic keeps it going with duct tape and tequila!
Hope you & your family have a nice week! High 4- Picabo

  Hey Gus,
Spelunking Part 6

As the aftershocks stop shaking the cave, every birdie is unsettled and scared. They all made it through the night with the help of everyone cooperating together they see sunlight. Then the hear someone calling Pookie, Laka, Polu, Tweetie! Pookie thinks he is dreaming and turns over to Dixie and says stop it, you sound like my mom...... Then Dixie says hey I must be in your dream cause I hear your mom too!

They both get up and get all the birdies up too. Now they are all screaming help!! They see mom looking in the hole above them. Mom!!! Pookie and the gang scream were down here!! Mom says okay I see ya! Everyone stand back! Papa Peter is going to break the opening and make it bigger. Everyone stands back and some of the rocks come tumbling down. Dad gets a step ladder and climbs down to get everyone. Okay everyone climb on and hang on to me! Every birdie climbs on to dad and he climbs up the ladder with all the birds.
Yay!!! We're saved!!! When they get up top momma Ruthie checks out all the birdies and makes sure they are okay. Okay let's get into the truck and go home. Everyone is so happy they sing the wheels on the truck as they head home. Everyone is so relieved that no one got hurt that their tummies start to rumble. Ooh and help yourselves to the food. We made it after the earthquake stopped. Oooh boy!! Everyone runs to the food table containing terriyaki meat on a stick, kalua pork, corn beef patties, potato Mac salad, sticky rice, tater tots, pineapple chunks, watermelon chunks, apples, grapes, kiwi and strawberries. Everything is birdie bite size which is just right for all the birdies. They all grab a plate and start piling up the food. Dixie and Pookies got a mountain on their plate. Cookie asks is there any pineapple cake? Ooh yes Cookie, it's at the end of the table. I just to make sure everyone eats nutritious foods first then the sweets last. But if you have room you can put it on your plate.
All you can hear is everyone eating as if they were starving for days. They were only out of food and water for 5 minutes till mom and dad found them all. Pookie and Dixie says it seemed like a long long long time tho!
After a good filing meal every birdie relaxes at Pookies house. There's enough room for everyone. Some birdies are hanging out at the pool, some are out back playing on the swings, and some are just snoozing in the tree. It's so good to be back in civilization! Sugar agrees with Kaji. Laka says hey, does everyone want to go hang out at the beach to have some fun?

Let me know so I can tell mom and dad. They need to get the beach gear to set up as we may want to stay a spell.

So everyone let me know!
Stay tuned for more of As The BC Turns, the saga continues.

Here's a vote for you.

It got really cold here ! ALL the windows are closed and it's only 49 degrees out ! High of 70 today . . . but that's OK, cause we're celebrating ME ! Yeppers, it's my hatchday so come on over ! Mom got corn on the cob and strawberries ! Plus the sugar snap peas were looking really good yesterday when she went to the market :) And I think I may finally get to see what was in that bag the folks brought home from BirdJungle last weekend when they went to get the new bulb for my lamp ! My Laura even called last night saying she was going to stop over - is life great, or what ?

Hope aunt Jinky is finally feeling better from her tumble. She got mom thinking that come a nice weekend, she and dad may go off hunting down some old haunts . . . what a nostalgic thing to do !

Hurry ! I'll be waiting ! Love you bunches ! Cookie

  Hey Gus,
Spelunking Part 5

Well we left off our BC friends last they were stuck in the underground caves. As the scouts come back they all decide to walk to where the opening up top is. After awhile of walking Laka tells everyone to turn off their headlamps to save the battery. First let's all gather some firewood since it'll be dark soon. I guess we'll all hafta spend the night here. I have no idea how cold caves get at night so let's all stick closely okay? Yeah everyone agrees with that. Hulk and Gus find a big log that will be good firewood for the night. It takes both of them to carry this big log. Meanwhile the other birds find little twigs and some grass to get the fire started. Chipper says maybe the smoke from the fire will alert anyone in the area and we will be saved! :) bThat's good thinking says Kaji but we need several plans just in case no one sees the smoke. Pearl and Jenny says yeah we need more plans. Once the fire gets going Cori and Sugar find more big logs to keep the fire going all night. This will keep us all warm! :). Very good girls says Silver, who's still carrying baby Tweetie who has clung herself to him. Ain't that cute says Cookie! Here let me carry her for awhile and Cookie reaches for the baby but she turns away. She doesn't want to go to him. Awwww okay, must be an earthquake after shock thing. Laka asks Pookie and Dixie what does the rest of the provisions look like? Pookie says well we have enough food and water to last us till tomorrow providing we don't eat it all tonight. Dixie says the snack ratio is only 2 per birds right now, minus the food that was lost in the quake. Laka says well right now the brownie level is down to one per birdie. That should last us through the night right gang? There's a low yeah from everyone as they are all worried about getting out. I miss my mommy says Piddy and Paddy! Ooh it's okay you guys says Pearl, we'll get out tomorrow when it's daylight and we can see. No worries! Sugar gives them a hug, let's not get down. Let's think positive okay? Pookie and Dixie pass out the food and water as everyone is hungry.
Hey how about a story? Yeah!! Come on Pookie! Let's hear a story, that'll take everyone's mind off of things.
Pookie says okay, everyone gather around the fire. Stay close and let's do the buddy system okay? Okay says everyone. Ahem.... Here's the story of Moki the mongoose. I think some of you may have heard this before.

Pookie starts once upon a time . . . . Then all of a sudden the cave starts rumbling again. Everyone starts screaming!!! Ooh no another earthquake!!! No, calm down its just an after shock! Yells Pookie.

Stay tuned for As The BC Turns, the saga continues.

Here's a vote for you.

  Hi Gus
That's the same thing Nana has the blue dot one goes in the left ear and the red one goes in the right ear,but Nana hadn't had much sleep the night before because she was up all night in pain from her hip as usual and she wasn't thinking straight!The Autumn Harvest butternut squash soup is under the brand name Signature cafe.It really is so good,Mom's had butternut squash soups before and they always put apple in it or some other thing like potatoes and it never really tastes like butternut squash at all,but this soup really tastes like butternut squash and has red bell pepper and onion and garlic.But you don't even taste the onion or garlic,it has a little bite to it but not much.And its so creamy and thick too!Mom will try and send a picture to Aunt Jinky so she can see what it looks like so she can maybe find it in her stores there.
Oh I so agree with you that we too haven't been outside in days now because of the cold,can you believe it that its down to 48 degrees here right now?Mom and I are so hoping that we can get some more good days to go outside here but that doesn't look like its gonna happen.The grands will be so surprised to see their photo albums that Aunt Jinky is making for them.That's something that they will treasure for always and forever,to hand down to their childrens children too!Pictures mean alot and can tell stories!
This morning was a cold but sunny day with the highs for the day of 65 the lows of 53 and right now its 63.There's a breeze out there which makes it feel even colder than it is.It rained last night but you'd never know it now.It really is beginning to feel like fall here.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages and fed us our bean mix and swept our room then got dad his breakfast of blueberry pancakes and got his coffee ready,then she made skin bro 2 and a half weeks of jelly sandwiches for his lunches for work.She will make dad his sandwiches tomorrow.Dad took out our a/c's today so now Mom has her windows back to let the sunshine in in the bedroom and in the TV room.Mom has to get the windowsill ready in the TV room again to take in all her houseplants that are in the garden outside,and she's hoping to get that all done by next month.Its going to be a nice quiet day here so far with both Mom and dad home with us and no one coming over.Mom is just keeping busy with getting the chores done she didn't get to yesterday.Other than that its going to be a boring uneventful day here and we may not even be able to get out on the deck because its so cold here now.I sure hope that our deck days and sitting out in the sunshine aren't over just yet!
UPDATE:We never made it out to dine on the deck or even to enjoy being out there at all today because it was so cold.We had pizza night inside and Candida got to fly around and share dad's pizza with him,while I got to stay in my deck cage and be served pizza crust from dad.It looks like we're not going to be able to get outside for the whole week now.How sad it it that th

  Hello Gus~
Hope you are having a wonderful day!! It must have been so much fun for you mom to go out looking for the landmarks! It the whole family from the same area? Moms mother was from Battle Creek Michigan and her dad was from Conyngham. His family lived in Luzerne County since they immigrated from Ireland.
Mom has one more night and then it's sleep for 4 days!hahahaha She wishes! At least she can sleep when it's dark. It's a big deal to her! I thought everyone slept when it gets dark. That's what you are suppose to do!!
Have a fabulous day and tell you mom to take is slow and we really are praying that the pain is going away! Hope you enjoyed that walnut too!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hey Gus,
Spelunking Part 4

As we left off the rumbling sounds were a 7.8 earthquake on the Leeward Side of Oahu. There was minimal damages from the earthquake that were reported, so Pearl City folks were okay.

However, the underlying caves may have crumbled and since then made sink holes around the Leeward side of the island.

Jenny has some talon grips from Hulk as he was hanging on to her during the quake.

Piddy and Paddy are stuck to one another and Kaji and Gus peels them apart as they made the sounds like Velcro. Hahahahahhahahah funny you two!

Baby Tweetie-kins is attached to Silver as he carries her around checking on everyone. Gee, she seems to be taking a liking to you huh Silver. Says Laka.

Everyone takes a brownie and starts eating. This is a good time for chocolate, says Sugar who has been eating several pieces already. Stress does this to me she tells Hulk as she eats another piece and he just stares at her with her beak full of brownies then he smiles and says ooh yeah I understand.

BooBoo, Angel Sally and Cookie scout up ahead and it’s a long walk to see some daylight from the darken damp caves. They get to the light but see that its really high up. BooBoo says I wonder if one of the big birds can throw me up there ? Then I could lower the ropes that we brought and save every birdie. What do you think Cookie? Sally? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm they both think about this and they both say I think we’d better go back and ask the rest of our friends to see what will be good for all of us, huh?

Yeah I think that’s a good idea Sallykins says Cookie. So the three treck it back to their friends and then break the news to them before it starts to get dark. It starts to get dark early these days like by 7 its really dark. Some of us birdies don’t like to be in the dark! That low voice came from the back….Gus maybe?

It’s okay we’ll work it out. Everyone talks about what idea is best for every birdie.

Stay tuned for more adventures of As the BC Turns, the saga continues.

Here’s a vote for you my friend.

Love & Hugs,

Pookie and friends

  street.Both Mom and Nana were scratched and full of thorns after they had stopped.As it was after 4:00pm Mom packed us all up and harnessed us and put us back in the car seat and we went home.Dad unpacked the car for Mom and she put us in our cages,and then had fun trying to fit all that stuff in fridges and freezers.Then she made dad a seafood sub and served the macaroni salad and we all went back on the deck while dad ate his dinner.The sun didn't even last long and it was so nice to watch the wild birds and critters out there.But soon the wind kicked in and it was getting so cold.Mom took us in and then they both came inside,Mom cleaned the dishes and the kitchen and finally we're here with Mom to get our notes out.Mom is hoping to have a nice quiet day tomorrow,she is so tired and can't wait to just sit down and relax for the rest of the night!

  Hi Gus
What an interesting trip for Aunt Jinky to go with her cousins daughter to look for landmarks of her family in the area!It really sounds like a whole lot of fun that they had together!
This morning was a beautiful sunny day and warm the highs for the day 78 the lows of 62.Mom got dad off to work and then she loaded the car with the rest of the recyclables and trash,and got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and then we got harnessed and got in our car seat.For some reason there was lots of traffic on the road and we still have tourists here.When Mom got to Nana's she set us up in our cages there and Nana was busy cleaning our cousins cages while Mom put Nana's trash and recyclables in Mom's car.Then they both took off to the dump where Mom got rid of the recyclables and then to the trash tunnel where she dumped the trash,from there they went to the Bank where Nana needed to get a document notarized and Mom put some money in to pay the bills,from there they went to Town Hall where Nana brought the document she had notarized,from there they went to the gas station where Mom pumped her gas and saved ten cents per gallon with her gas points and got gas for $2.03/gal.The actual cost of gas was $2.13/gal.From there they went to Falmouth where they stopped at the hearing aide place so Nana could find out if her batteries were in right.Come to find out that Nana had her hearing aides in the wrong ears!She had the right one in the left ear and the left one in the right ear.From there they went to Friendly's to have a $2.00 hamburger with a large soda.Both Mom and Nana don't really drink soda but that's what came with the meal.From there they went to Shaws/Star Market grocery store where both Mom and Nana got some good deals.Mom got her favorite Autumn Harvest butternut squash soup which comes in a 24 oz plastic container and its so smooth and creamy with roasted peppers in it,they were on sale for 3/$10.00 and all that were left were 8 so Mom had to get a tomato basil bisque .Both Mom and Nana got a Freschetta Pizza for $4.00 and they both got more potato salad in big containers for $1.49 each and Mom got some macaroni salad for $1.49 also.Mom bought 2 loaves of sandwich bread for $0.99 and some jam also to make skin bro's lunches with.From there they went to Home Goods but didn't find anything there and walked back out.From there they went back to Nana's house and Mom unpacked the car and helped to put Nana's things away.Then Nana made us some fruit bowl for our snack while Mom did the unpacking of the car.Then both Mom and Nana went out into her front yard and Mom took the electric hedge trimmers and began chopping the overgrowth and the picker,thorny things that were growing in the middle of all her bushes,Mom wasn't tall enough to get the highest ones there,while Mom was chopping down the pickers and thorns and all the overgrowth on the side of Nana's yard,Nana was raking what Mom pulled out and bringing it over to the field across the

  Hello Gus~
Hope you are having a fabulous day! It's cool and rainy here. Suppose to clear up by 1 or 2 but since it's already 3, I don't think it's going to happen.
I am being loud today. Just feeling the joy! Mom is not enjoying it since she finally got McKenzie quieted down and now I'm yelling! Someday's it's not much fun to be mom!
Only 2 night to go and mom will have 4 nights off. Only 2 more nights of fair traffic too! Tonight is Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy. Ian said mom should leave right now!hahahahaha She can always get off the freeway and take the streets. She leaves herself plenty of time to do that.
You should really get a cat! You can blame everything on the cat!hehehehehehe Actually he doesn't do much during the day except sleep and get up for snacks! Mom has us all trained for snack time at 10:30 am.
Hope your mom is feeling better today and getting better everyday!! We are keeping her in our prayers!
I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

  hi Gus and aunt Jinky
TGIF ! And this one is looking good ! Hot today but in the 70's moving forward - just like this time of year should be ! Best of all ? Mom promised to come home right away - that means 3:15 !

I think she's finally getting into the routine of school. The kids are still really nice - there are a couple imps to keep her on her toes and grounded in reality though . . . looks to be a good year.

Have a happy Friday in your house too ! Love you :) Cookie

  Hey Gus,
Spelunking Part 3

The rumbling of what sounds like thunder turns out to be a earthquake! The whole cave is shaking and their sandwiches rolled around and their juice box falls down and there’s nothing to hang on to . . . . . . . . . . Pookie yells hang on to each other and stay against the wall, away from the falling rocks everyone!! Every birdie grabs someone next to them and they fly to the wall side avoiding the loose debri falling. The rocks are tumbling into the water splashing everyone close to the water side. Angel Sally says that seemed like a 7.5 on the richter scale! Yeah says Cookie. Gus and Kaji are glued to the side of the wall. Everyone alright? Laka asks? Yeah, we’re still here says Cori and BooBoo still leaning against the wall. You guys can peel yourself away from the wall, it’s over now. Jenny says Hulk, you can let go of me now. Hulk says yeah uh, okay it’s over thank goodness boy was that scary!! Yeah Piddy and Paddy look like one bird as they are clingling close together. Pearl and Silver check on Baby Tweetie, she’s okay! Chipper, Pookie and Cookie check on the entrance making sure that they are not all trapped inside. Wait here everyone we’re going to check the entrance and the way we came in okay?

Everyone calm down, it’s all over. Laka starts passing out bite size brownies that mom had made. Its full of sweetness, good at a time like this when every birdie is stressed out.

Pookie, Cookie and Chipper come back quickly as they said the entrance is blocked partially.

Partially?!!!! What does that mean??

Calm down everyone! We'll figure this out.

Let's keep going further in, there might be a way out.

Yeah Cookie says Pookies right.

Okay who wants to be our scouts?

BooBoo says I'll go, I'm small enough! Okay, you, Cookie and Angel Sally go check it out while we all stay here.

Laka checks to see if she can get a signal from her cell phone.

Stay tuned for more adventures of As the BC Turns, the saga continues.

Here’s a vote for you my friend.

Love & Hugs,

Pookie and friends

  Hi Gus
hope your mom is feeling better today. saw in the news a 77 year old woman was kidnapped from a grocery stow in Apollo.

mom was transplanting a few shrubs today. another bright hot sunny day. she thought she would water some other shrubs while she was moving the other shrubs around because they were starting to wilt. she almost lost her balance for a second and thought she was standing on her shoes she had worn outside before putting on her work boots. she looked down and saw she was standing on a black snake.. it didn't try to bite her and just slithered into a hole in the stone wall. mom replanted the shrubs and then watered everything very well especially the spot where the snake went but it nave came out again.

love Cori

  Hi Gus
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 79 the lows of 60 and right now its 76.Mom got dad off to work and then she got our bean mix ready and collected some of the trash to take to the dump tomorrow and got some of the recyclables out in the car.Then she vacuumed the whole downstairs and then got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and we got our breakfast.Mom is just going to get some chores done today and hopefully will get to take us outside to enjoy some warm sunshine.We are having a wonderful uneventful day here just the kind of day we always look forward to!
UPDATE:We finally got to get out for some time on the deck with Mom and when Dad came home we got to stay out side and join them for dinner!We got to enjoy the wild birds flying around and taking baths in the bird bath.My dad had to clean it out and refill it with fresh water for them like he does every day when he comes home from work.It began to get cold and the sun left and we were brought inside when it was getting too dark and cold to be out there.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm wing hugs and soft beakie kisses and a vote for my friend!Loving you always and forever,your friend Dixie
