  Hi Gus
Yesterday, mom led 2 anthropology tours at the museum. Both were with college students from West Virginia University. Mom's first question to both groups was how many were hung over? WVU won their football game on Saturday, so there was some celebrating going on. She had fun with the college students, and both groups covered 3 desert cultures, Ancient Egypt, Inuits in Northern Canada from about 100 years ago, and modern Hopi Native Americans. The second group was more engaged, and seemed to have a better time with it. At the end of the second tour, they asked if mom had been a teacher, so she said yes. They hoped it wasn't at Pitt, to which mom replied that's where she got her Masters. One of the girls said she'd forgive mom for that, because everyone is entitled to a mistake now and again. Mom just laughed and laughed over that.
Today at the center, mom cleaned the RVS room and the squirrel porch. It was funny on the squirrel porch, there were 3 fox squirrels, including the one she fostered, 6 red squirrels, and about a dozen gray ones. The gray ones were in and out of each other's cages, having a ball. Mom couldn't get an accurate count! Hopefully they were all there.
I hope you are having a wonderful day, full of sunshine, love, and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Gus.
It's Sawyer.
Yesterday started off on a sad note. Yup, paying bills. That sat the mood for the rest of the day. Dad changed more sprinkler heads and mom watched TV. After dad was finished with the sprinklers on the north side of the house he came in and watched TV with mom. Hey, at least they were home with us. Mom finally noticed the TV shelf that dad built. She said it looked great and matched the entertainment center perfectly. Yaaaay Dad!
Today will be partly cloudy with a high of 81 and a low of 61 and mom and dad will be working at the police dept.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

Guess what? My parronts and skin sis went to Costco yesterday and they found a package of pomegranate seeds! Of course they bought it.....seeds without the fuss! I can't wait to get my beak into that!
Yesterday was delightfully cool and sunny! Too chilly for me to be outside...but still very nice!

  Hi, Gus
No one should have to get sick with things that are preventable by vaccine. However, if some parronts chose not to vaccinate then if the child gets sick that is something they must deal with then.

Well, skinsis is very short and new SIL is quite tall, heehee. Hopefully the grand will be somewhere in between in height of the two of 'em.

It is so wonderful of your mom to keep up with those albums for the grands. Know they'll love to look over 'em in the years to come. They grow so fast and change so much.

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

t's already here again ! And jeepers is it cold ! Mom spent a good part of the day dragging in plants since we were having our first freeze warning last night - and we sure did ! brrrrrrr . . .

Now it's back to school for mom, back to work for dad and back to my cage for me ! I finally scored a new shred and destroy toy from Palooza to play with. Of course I have to find a good place to do that first ! It's a small box (3x3x1) with confetti coming out the sides and a leather strip with wood pieces tied to the top . . . and guess what's inside ? A NUT ! !

Have a great day ! Love to all - Cookie

Well, your girlfriend is a cutie even if I did get the Suzie's mixed up. What a cute couple you are.
Another nasty dreary dark cold day for us up north. My parronts aren't feeling well so, we just sat around. Dad had a surgery last Thursday and mom now has a cold. They sure aren't fun.
Today was spent just hanging out with my parronts and chewing up new toys. It's still dark, gloomy and cold here. Dad put the patio furniture away when mom was at Parrot Palooza. That's a sign of winter for us!

ITS GOOD THAT YOUR MOM HAS PROJECTS TO DO IN THE WINTER TIME.

G-PA BROUGHT THE CACTUS PLANT INSIDE SO G-MA WOULD STOP WORRYING ABOUT IT. I THINK ITS IN THE CORNER BY THE COUCH.

EVEN THOUGH THE TEMPS WERE IN THE 50'S THE SUN WAS SHINNING TODAY. IT WAS GREAT TO SEE THE SUN AFTER ABOUT 4 DAYS WITHOUT IT.

HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT MONDAY

  Hi Gus
We woke up to a dull gray day here this morning and was it ever freezing and it only got up to 55 degrees.Mom had a busy day today trying to get the food ready for the last BBQ we are going to have for the season.Mom cut up lots of onions and fresh tomatoes from Nana's garden,lettuce and got all the condiments out for the hamburgers and hot dogs,then when the grill was ready she put on a steak,turkey breasts thinly sliced,hamburgers,hot dogs and a mixed veggie platter that she grilled.It was freezing out 50 degrees and cloudy with no sun.Both skin sibs came over and as Mom was grilling they were taking some of skin sis's things out of the cellar and sun room to take back to a storage unit they got.Skin sis still has her big game table and her desk in the sun room she has to come back for and all her things in the spare room which is Mom's work out area to get rid of.After they got through eating outside they decided to have dessert inside which was Pepperidge Farms gold cake with chocolate frosting.We all had to stay inside our warm room while they were outside.And we couldn't join them for dessert because of the chocolate!Then Mom got all her houseplants inside and as she was doing that dad got the deck furniture into the sun room for the winter. Mom got the deck cage back out into the sun room for the winter also.How sad to see an empty deck now!Tomorrow is going to be a freezing winter morning with temperatures only at 36 and our lows for tonight will be 38 so they say so far.
Those grands are just going to love those albums that your sweet Momma is making for them!Oh those beautiful cards she makes are just so awesome,Mom so treasures the one your amazing Mom sent her!
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,my sweet ekkie forever friend!Love,Dixie

  October BOTM POST number thirteen
Hi everybirdie Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. I want to take a moment to thank you all for your continuous daily votes, and awesome blogs. I am trying to use them in my story line so keep them comin.' IF anybirdie still needs a Halloween picture please let me know your choice of costume and I will see what I can do to help you out.
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" Sky screams shrilly and he a Jake back up quickly from the mound of parted grass. "What was that thing???"
"I have no idea but I'm outta here" Jake heads back to rejoin BB and the others, with Sky following on his heels.
Sky shivers, and ducks behind BB. Peaking out to stare towards the grass with dilated eyes. "EEEEEKuck." Sky did not get the words out before birdies began to scream and jump as fast as they could to join Jake and Sky behind BB and BonBon who had come to see what was wrong with her Poppa Sky.
"S-P-I-D-E-R-S!" from every direction big, ucky, black, beady eyed spiders crawl, hang and appear out of every tree, bush and from behind every blade of grass. The girl birds huddle close together as the spiders spin their webs angrily from every solid object. Sky nervously sneaks a peak again from behind BB, closing his eyes. He hates spiders, well no, Sky is afraid of them, and these are BIG, black ucky ones with a quadrillion legs. He shutters, then takes a brave breath of air.
"BOYS, we must protect the ladies" Sky announces not too confidently.
"Yeah, that's right" Cookie says, hanging tightly onto BB's leg once more. " we'll protect you girls"
"Oh really, they're just Spiders" BooBoo says snatching one in her beak and swallowing it whole, "YUMMMMMIE"
The others look at BooBoo and make faces, "how disgusting BooBoo, eating it without BBQing it first" BonBon chirps up. " AHHHHHHH, ones chasing me" she says taking flight. She lands on her Poppa Sky's head. "I'll sit up here and keep watch on them for you" she grins down at her red feathered Poppa.
The spiders continue to emerge, spinning thick webs everywhere. Their black eyes glaring like fiery flames of anger. The birds huddle closely as the Spiders move closer and closer. Suddenly Jesse sees what looks like an opening, and yells, " Follow me" he runs as fast as his talons will carry him between two Mulberry bushes with the others closely upon his heels. The duck low to avoid the heavy webs hanging from the old dark trees, and weave to the left and right around the huge black spiders who appear to block their path of escape. Jesse rushes forward, jumping over an old fallen log, and lands inches from a monstrous Spider, who growls and snaps his feet at the pasting birdies.
"EEEEEEEEEEEE" the scream brings the fleeing birds to a halt, "LITTLE ANGEL, the Spiders grabbed her into their web, HELP HER!!!!!

It is very nice here today. They were calling for 77, but I don't think it got quite that warm. Our thermometer says 72, and it's 1PM now. I did get out for my sunbath though, and it was very nice in the sunshine. Got two nutriberries as well, which is always good.

And so now I sit on Mom's knee dictating my blogs. She has the door shut, since Dad is home. And besides I have a made a break from my room twice today for the bathroom. I love hanging out on top of the medicine cabinets in there. And besides it annoys Mom, which is always fun.

We had mac and cheese for lunch today. Mom added some Cajun spice, cottage cheese (for protein) and a bit of Romano cheese to kick it up a notch. It must have worked, because she really liked it and I ate like a little pig. Good thing she gets to eat meat starting tomorrow, because this morning when she woke me up and I was doing my morning stretch, she referred to my legs as drumsticks! Yikes!

That's a cute idea for the milk jugs.
The opera gala last night was wonderful, too bad it couldn't have lasted longer. Mom did hear lots of arias, duets, and ensembles that she loves, and they did a bit of operetta as well.
Mom's tour with college students turned out to be fun yesterday, and they wanted Dinosaur hall, which she loves. Today mom has 2 tours at the museum with West Virginia University students. Do you think she's trying to avoid the football game? I sure do. She got very upset with the team's loss last week, even though she didn't see the game.
I hope you are having a good day, lots of sun and warmer temps than we have here. Get lots of scritchies and cuddles today. Hugs, Falco

It's Sawyer.
The flag is huge. It's a full size flag and won't fit on the smaller flag pole that dad has. We think that we see another project coming on.
Dad is finished with the TV shelf and will bring it into the house today. It took him all week to build and finish it but he's happy with it. Mom spent the day marking TV shows to record on the two DVRs. Now she's complaining that there's no more room on them. Dad had a brilliant idea. Stop recording stuff! We don't think that mom listened.
Today will be partly cloudy with a high of 81 and a low of 61.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

Mom would have loved that craft show ! She's seen those skeletons before . . . cool !

It's Sunday - and it's getting chilly and windy here. Dad got up during the night to close windows :( So when mom got up (after sleeping in till almost 6:00 !), instead of getting right on line with her coffee like she usually does, she went out to start cleaning up the back deck. There's a freeze warning for tonight so all the plants have to be cleaned off (bugs) and dragged in before the end of the day . . .

Mom also has a little school work to get done which I'm hoping she'll let me assist with ! Math tests and compositions . . .

Have a great Sunday ! love Cookie

  Hi, Gus
Not sure when many new parronts decided not to get their babies vaccinated but just isn't worth the risk of 'em catching whooping cough, measles or other yucky disease. Skinsis also got a shot (for chickenpox) since she never got one as a preteen/teen which think is about when it became available. Dad had it as an adult and says she would not want to get it now that she's grown (not that kids want it either...).

Think the grand looks a lot like skinsis when compare their baby pics. So long as the grand gets some of her dad's height that would be good, heehee.

Ahhh, a crafty person never misses an opportunity to see what other crafters are making. Good to save those jugs for another to recycle and know they will make good skeleton parts. Never know when might get inspired from seeing others' work.

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

  Hi Gus
it is a dark and dreary night…

so far they re doing a good job tracking the ebola virus and containing it. the problem with viruses are that they like to mutate. the 2 major hospitals in pittsburgh are saying since they are research hospitals they are competing with each other and asking that the ebola patients be sent to them for treatment. mom lives 6 miles from one of the hospitals. all zombie movies always start out with these words. DO NOT PANIC. EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL then the mayhem starts.

well tonight when mom went to use the computer she couldn't get on the internet. she checked and the computer said she was on the internet but she couldn't do anything other than read her email. she finally figured out that even though she was connected to the internet her search engine on Safari had disappeared. mom sat there for over an hour trying to figure out where it went. finally mom turned the computer off and then on again. still no good. then mom called comcast and told them to reset her computer by sending a signal. still no search engine. mom turned off the computer and went to the grocery store. when she came home she turned the computer back on and the search engine was back. mom doesn't know what happened but glad it is back.

This morning both Mom and Dad got up early and then Mom came downstairs and got us all up early to take me to the vet,she cleaned all our cages,and fed us our warm bean mix and then wrapped me in my favorite blankie and then put her coat over that and they got to the vet at five past nine this morning,there weren't any cars in the parking lot and so dad got out of the car and walked up to the building to see if they were even opened and they were!So when he came back to the car,Mom walked in with me and I wouldn't leave her and my blanket,finally Mom got my twisted toes untangled from my blankie and gave me to the vet tech who took me into the back room and when she came back she gave Mom a good report that my eye was healing nicely but that I still had to take my meds til they're both gone,the antibiotics and the eye drops!Not what I wanted to hear!
Skin bro sends you all his love and thanks you for all the birthday wishes you sent him,it really made his day!
Mom is hoping to bring her houseplants in tomorrow and get that job done before my dad takes the deck furniture in.Mom is planning on having one last BBQ tomorrow and the skin sibs are both coming for that!Who wouldn't come for free food!LOL!

  October BOTM POST number twelve
Hello friends, Jesse here with our Saturday BOTM Adventure Post. As we turned for a final look at BC Lake, the water is once more calm, glass-like and no sign of the past violent storm remains. Even the row-boats have disappeared. "WHAT! The row-boats, their gone!" Kacey exclaims loudly as she stares in disbelief. For indeed the boats had vanished into thin air.
BB looks at Sky and Jesse, then back at the Lake, "I hope we can find the BC Castle. It is funny that it has disappeared on us. I know it is a magical place but why would it vanish on the birds who love it sooooo much???" Then looking down towards the ground she says with a sigh, "Can somebirde please remove Cookie from around my legs? Its hard to waddle this way."
" SURE HOPE WE FIND OUR WAY BACK TO THE CASTLE THEN FIND OUR FRIENDS. THIS IS ONE SCAREY TRIP.' Sweetpepper tells Kiddo with worry in her voice. Kiddo takes her wing in his, and holds her tightly. "We'll get out of here, don't you worry Sweetpepper."
Spot comes to where Sky, BB and Jesse are standing, trying to decide what to do next. Jake walks towards the group, but suddenly stops dead in his tracks. "What was that?" he asks pointing to where he had thought he saw something peaking out of the grass at him. Seeing nothing he joins the others.
Bonbon looks and sees that her picture with Parker is in the photo album Hesse has on his gallery. turning to spot and Parker she says, "Jesse put me and Parker in the profile!Hehee!!! I can't wait to show Snowflake........ Oh no! I forgot that she disappeared!" BonBon starts to cry loudly because she misses her friend!
Spot hugs her and says, "don't worry BonBon. We'll find her and all the others too!"(He sounds more confidant than he feels, but he won't let BonBon see that!)
"Hey, Panther! I have an idea! We're tiels, and fly well! let's go up as high as we can and look for them!"
"Good idea, Spot," says Panther.
Jesse says, "you guys be careful! And keep up in sight range, OK?"
"OK, let's go Panther!" Spot lifts into the air
They fly straight up and fly in a big circle looking for their friends. Finally, they land and report to Jesse. "We didn't see them, we also didn't see the castle in any direction! I think we're lost!"
Worry lines form on Jesse's handsome face again, and he says, "it must be a trick of some kind by the BC ghosts! The Castle has to be there. It's always easy to find from the Lake."
Jake and Sky stand close, talking. "I am certain I saw tiny black eyes staring at me from over there, then they disappeared." Sky looks in the direction Jake indicated. Seeing nothing he frowns. " We better go check it out, just to be sure." The two boys inch closer to where the eyes had been.

  Hi Gus
I am having a pretty nice day. It being Saturday, Mom and Dad went grocery shopping. However Mom spent an hour reading with me first (and of course got up early to give me breakfast). Now I am once again well supplied with sugar snap peas and bananas. Mom was very frustrated in the store, because they were giving out lots of samples without having a single one she can eat yet. Monday can't get here soon enough for her.

However Mom forgot to eat lunch, so we still need to do that. She has gotten really weird about eating since the surgery. You would think she would be hungry all the time, but she isn't. No wonder she hasn't gained back any of the weight, even with her one solid meal of rice and veggies (the one she hasn't eaten yet today).

I did get a nice sunbath, and we both enjoyed the mid 70s temps. The sun was out today, so there was actual sunshine. I know I still get the healthy rays when it is cloudy, but it just feels nicer when the sun is shining.

And so as I dictate from my mom's knee, I bid you all a wonderful weekend!

  Hey Gus !
Happy Saturday - mom is still remembering last Saturday and all the fun she had :) Today she and daddy went apple picking - and now I'm just waiting for my taste ! I do love apples.

We have a real fall weekend - by tomorrow the temperatures are supposed to drop into the 50's and stay there for the rest of the week, with more rain coming in midweek - Tomorrow is also mom's sister's birthday so the parronts may end up heading out for either lunch or an early dinner.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday - love you all ! Cookie

  Hi Gus
No, most animals stay until they are ready to be released, but sometimes, especially with smart squirrels or raccoons, they can figure out an escape.
Today mom has a tour at the museum at 2, and the group has grown. She is not sure how many will be on the tour, because up until yesterday her boss at the museum was still asking for more docents.
Tonight it is opening night at the opera, and they're doing something different. This year, they are doing a gala affair, with excerpts from various operas, choruses and whole scenes. Mom thinks it's because it will be cheaper than putting on an opera. That means the season is cut to 4 performances and tonight's gala, instead of the 5 they normally do. Aunt Gin and mom are going together, so they will be eating at Pusadee's Garden, a great Thai restaurant on the way to the theater.
I guess that means we'll be in lockdown most of the day. I hope you have better luck, and can get lots of cuddles and love today. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Gus
It's Sawyer.
Mom and dad didn't do much yesterday. Dad went to Costco and had new passport pictures taken and then put the first clear coat on the TV shelf. Then they went to the movies and saw "When The Game Stands Tall". It's about a high school football team and a coach that coaches in a different way. It was good. When they got home there was a phone call from the police dept. telling mom and dad that they had won a prize from the raffle at the Tip A Cop event. The won an American Flag. It's waiting for them at the station front counter.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 80 and a low of 59. Dad's going to and another clear coat to the TV shelf. Not sure about the rest of the day.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

  Hi, Gus
That is good to have the curtain that helps limit the mess (know we can fling stuff fairly far, so imagine if you had an open space could as well) and the easy to wipe walls. No carpeting for us so easy to wipe the floors here.

Oh, bringing in of the plants? We don't do that here. Everything has to fend for itself out there as we do occasionally get below freezing temps. Sometimes dad'll throw a tarp over the more delicate stuff but really only the hibiscus are sensitive.

The grand came over yesterday since skinsis had to teach a class. She was a tad fussy, not bad, but considering she had gotten two shots (one in each leg) would've eggspect a lot more crying but maybe it'll bother her at nighttime. Skinsis got the baby tylenol and instructions on when to use if needed.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

Oh ok, I got that mixed up. Mom asked Colleen if she knew you and your mom and she said yes. She is a very pretty and sweet mom. Don't know how I got the Suzi and Susan mixed up?
Yes, it took 5 hours to get from Falco's house to the hotel in Yardley. It was an easy 20 minutes to the PP in New Jersey. No problem driving there and they had a large area for parking.
It seems that tossing a full food dish on the floor is frowned upon. So, I thought that two dishes would be better. Mom wasn't smiling! Hey, I'm bored with all this gloomy weather. Looks like we will have a few days in the 40's. I hope with no rain, my feet are getting webbed! QUACK!
Hugs

  Hi Gus
HAPPY TGIF DAY THOUGHT YOU MIGHT FIND THIS INTERESTING
Ebola– its origins
People in West and Central Africa consume many species of forest animals. Bats are often used in soups. Whole dead monkeys are sold openly in markets and prepared monkey meat is served in many restaurants. Flesh of endangered and legally protected chimpanzees and gorillas, considered a delicacy by some, is provided “under the table” at open markets and sold illegally to urban elite through special dealers. Collectively called bushmeat, forest dwelling animals are butchered and eaten in small villages by people who would go hungry otherwise. However, huge quantities of bushmeat are also transported to urban areas and sold commercially to wealthier Africans —who consider it a delicacy. A small percentage of bushmeat is exported to immigrant communities in Europe and the United States. Research studies link Ebola and bushmeat–killing humans and chimpanzees alike .

Ebola is a zoonotic disease, meaning it’s transferred from an animal to a human (also like HIV, SARS).The exact modes of transmission, scientists have deduced a scenario like this: First, the virus lives inside a “healthy animal,” who harbors the virus without manifesting symptoms—labeled as the anatural host or reservoir. Most scientists think migrating fruit bats are suspect. One day a fruit bat eats part of a fruit that’s now infested with Ebola and then drops it. A few hours later, a chimpanzee discovers the Ebola-infected fruit and finishes it. One week later, the chimp is dead. A poor villager stumbles upon its carcass soonafter. With glee, he carries home the dead body. Unfortunately, while cutting up the carcass, a small drop of infected with Ebola, splashes onto his skin. Two days, after a delightful meal, the villager feels ill with flu-like symptoms, a headache and muscle pains. Later on that week, he vomits and has bloody diarrhea. On his eighth day ill, he is dead. Neighboring villagers wash his corpse in a traditional West African ceremony before burying it. Two weeks later, the diggers and some attendants who kissed the corpse die also, Ebola that can live in a corpse for several days, so corpses can transmit Ebola. Once inside a symptomatic human, it is quite infectious, and spreads like wildfire from human to human.

LOVE Cori
ps: mom brought in 2 plants today. she has 10 more to bring in.

  Oatie and Ipo wake Makana just before midnight and tell her she has an appointment. She asks what kind of appointment could she have in the middle of the night? They just smile and tell her she must hurry. So she runs after them and stops when she sees Sophie and Pimer in the shuttle but Oatie and Ipo pulls her aboard and makes certain she's secured as it takes off. Her eyes get bigger and bigger as she watches the castle get closer. They land and as she steps out behind Sophie and Pimer she gets her first look at the red carpet unrolling before them and Oatie gives her a push. She steps on the carpet and walks between birds as she enters the castle. She sees Queen Angel sitting on her throne and an empty seat next to her. She curtsies to the Queen and finds herself lifted up and placed on the seat next to her. She feels a crown placed on her head and her frother and sisters honor her then move aside as the other birds greet and congratulate her on becoming BOTD! Queen Angel leans over and whispers, "You're supposed to tell them to start the party." "OH! LET THE PARTY START!" Angel hides her laughter as she sees the big smile on Makana's beak. Makana is so glad she was able to get some sleep so she could enjoy this party.
She stands up and everybird looks her way, "Um, I want to thank each and every one for this honor. Now we can party" With much laughter, everybird does just that.

  Hi Gus
We woke up to a bright sunny day with the highs of 68.Mom got us up early and fed and cleaned our cages and collected the trash,and loaded it in her car,got dad his breakfast and coffee and left him something for his lunch and got me(Dixie) and my meds in the car and took off to Nana's house.I(Dixie) got to spend the day in Nana's sunroom with my cousin Trixie II while Nana and Mom went to the dump and the bank.Then they went back to Nana's and then Mom helped to show Nana how to change her vacuum cleaner bag,and re calibrate her heat box and they waited for skin bro to get back from his job search so they could go out for his birthday.Finally late in the afternoon he was done with the job search for the day and he picked up my dad and brought him to Nana's house where Mom and Nana were waiting and they all went out to Bobby Byrnes to have a late late lunch to celebrate skin bro's birthday today,skin bro got the pork chops with mashed potatoes and carrots and Nana got the meat loaf with mashed potatoes and carrots and Mom got,the baked schrod with carrots and rice pilaf and dad got the fish and chips with cole slaw.Then from there they went to Stop&Shop to get skin bro a birthday cake,they went back to Nana's and called skin sis who got out of work at 5:00pm to meet them there so she could celebrate with them.They had cake and ice cream and coffee and then by the time everyone was ready to go it was near 7:00pm.Mom had to take care of us when she got home,clean our cages and give us some more food as dad fed us and gave everyone their peanuts and she cleaned the kitchen from dad's lunch dishes and our breakfast dishes etc and then got us all to bed and here we are now just starting to get our blogs done!Mom is going to have another early day tomorrow as she has to take me(Dixie)to the vet in the morning early for a follow up visit for my eye.
Mom still has to get all her houseplants inside and she's going to do that all weekend,she has to clean the window sill in the tv room where they all stay and get it all set up to bring them all inside again,then we'll be having one last BBQ and dad will take all the deck furniture and table inside for the winter!How sad to see an empty deck!
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,my sweet green ekkie friend,Love,Dixie

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