We met ON THE BIRD CHANNEL!!! Mommy met another quaker owner blogging on the Bird Channel and found out she had 2 blue quaker babies for sale. She and Mommy emailed each other a few times and then talked on the phone. The nice lady sent Mommy pics of her 2 blue babies. Next the two Mommies arranged a time to come and pick me up. Then Mommy and Daddy drove to Ohio on a Sunday afternon and picked me out. It was hard because my fib was very cute, too. But I crawled up on Mommy and snuggled under her chin, so she chose me! (Or so she thinks...I actually chose HER!) And that's where I stayed all the way home, snuggled under Mommy's chin for 3 whole hours! We bonded and she's been MY favorite human ever since!.

Hi! My name is Miss Lucy Blue

I am a Quaker Mutation from White Lake, MI.

Little Lucy, Lucy-Loo, Baby, Baby-girl & Miss Lucy-Blucy

7 years old   F

Quaker Mutation

Nutriberries, cheese, crackers, Great Grains Crunchy Pecan cereal, eggs, pistacios, pecans and peanut butter.

ON MY Mommy ALL the time, sometimes on the boing, or playstand and out on the enclosed porch which is my summer cottage.

Mommy leaving the room without me. Mommy talking to or giving ANYONE attention but me, especially Daddy. I'm very possessive and jealous of my Mommy. (I actually like Daddy, but only when Mommy is not around. Hehe!)

All of the kisses and snuggles she gives me. I know my Mommy loves me more than anything. She talks to me all the time 'cause I'm with her almost all the time. She protects me when I'm scared, too. I just love to kiss my Mommy and snuggle up against her neck! I'm Mommy's girl!

I am potty trained! I don't think that's a quirky habit. Aren't you potty trained? I'll go poopy anywhere my Mommy tells me to whether it's over a wastebasket, the toilet, on my playstand, in my cage or just on a tissue she's holding in her hand. I'm very co-operative. Oh, and I LOVE to play peeky-boo! I'll play under the sheets when she's making the bed or in the towels when she's folding clothes, or even when she peeks her head around the corner at me. Peeky-Boo!.

I'm true blue!.

I bet your Mom has that sucking machine going a lot! Not fond of it myself, but Mom says it is a must-do to keep the place looking nice. Sure am happy that your Dad is getting stronger--and it is so awesome that all the family is coming home to see him and your Mom. Nothing better than having the flock come together!!

Still saying some good prayers that your Dad continues to get better, and your Mom is getting some rest, well as much as she can with all that cleaning!!

V4U today. So glad to hear that your dad is back home and feeling better. We have been praying for him, and we'll keep on praying for him. We finally saw our first hummingbird last weekend, and we've been seeing the same hummingbird every day since. We only see one so far, but maybe there are more. The mockingbird babies are getting so big. They scamper in and out of the bushes. Wishing you a nice day. From, Mayo

What wonderful news ! We'll keep the prayers lifting strong for your dear daddy ! And mommy too !

We've had rain every single day this week since Sunday - only every other day it's waited till night time - today we woke up to it :( Looks like I may have to put on my tool belt and start building an ark !

Later today mom's niece (aka MY Laura !) is coming over ! She's the one who stays with me if the parronts go away on an overnight (vacations, I get to go on too !) She's a special ed teacher and mom has a bunch of stuff she cleared out of her classroom in June and before she tosses it, wants to make sure Laura can't use it.

Have a terrific day ! love Cookie

  Hi Lucy Blue
V4U today. It's kind of hard to explain, tell your mom to do a search on cane borer wasps is she wants learn more about them. We have so many wasps here and they can ruin a rose fast. Once there is a hole in the center of the rose cane, the larvae is already burrowing down the cane. The part of the cane that's been drilled through will show damage on the outside, like a change in color. You need to cut the cane down to where there is no more drilled hole. Then seal up the end of the cane with Elmer's glue. The glue protects the ends of the canes from the cane borer larvae, so it's a preventative, not a remedy for a hole already drilled. The drilled bad part of the cane needs to be cut off the rose bush. Hope that helps. Have a good day. From, Mayo

Lots of prayers for your daddy's health - and for your mommy too - that's a lot of work and stress :(

We had perfect weather here yesterday so there was bbq :) Chicken and corn on the cob (beak watering yet) and tomato and basil salad ! Strawberry shortcake for dessert ! Now, you have to admit, it doesn't get any better than that !

Today daddy is staying home to take care of a bum tire on his car, and mom promised to be home early :) This is her last week ! ! ! Well, she has to go next Monday for meetings, but the kids are gone Friday :)

Oh...no! We sure are sad to hear that your Dad is in so much pain! And your Mom needs to get that sleep--so maybe having your Dad in the hospital is for the best for both of them. Not that anyone wants to be there, but the doctors need to see what is up with your Dad, and we sure are hoping that he can get better, and pain free, soon. In the meantime, you make sure your Mom takes care of herself, okay? We sure do send our energy and thoughts and prayers to your Mom so she can get some support, and to your Dad so he feels so much better.

For all the daddy's :

On Father's Day I'll try to see
How happy I can make dad be
I'll try to be just extra good
and do each thing just as I should

I'll climb on daddy's knee and say
With my little face of grey
I know something I could do
be extra helpful, thoughtful too

And dad will grin, happy as can be
as he sits and skritches me

Happy Father's day to all the dads and extra prayers for yours my friend ! love Cookie

  Heya, Miss Lucy Blue!
Oh, how wonderful to hear from you! And maybe your Mom said she was from Racine--Mom sort of remembers that. And even though I don't like seagulls myself, Mom says that she enjoys watching them glide on the wind currents. And they fish--and are pretty good at catching fish, too. Mom would do the same thing, too, as your Mom did for that bird. Or she would at least try.

How is your Dad doing? Mom and I and Lizzie always think of him and hope that he is getting stronger. He has been thru so much. And so has your Mom. We hope that things are okay.

Sending good thoughts your way!

V4U today. Well, we had a sunny day yesterday after 5 days in a row of pouring rain. But it's pouring again today! In a way the rain is not too bad, but enough is enough already. LOL :) Mom needs to put some Elmer's glue on the ends of the rose canes again. Problem is that it's been so rainy and the glue won't even stick to the soaking wet rose cane ends. Those darn wasps have been going wild drilling cane borer holes in the rose canes and mom had to cut some of the canes way back. ugh. Wishing you a nice weekend. From, Mayo

  Hi Lucy Blue
V4U today. We've had stormy weather along with tornado watches on and off since the weekend. It's still raining heavily right now, almost 5 days in a row of rain and storms. The little wrens didn't make it. A predator bird got to the nest. The nest was so well hidden inside of the rose tree, so the bird must have been a strong and bold one. Same thing happened to our neighbors mockingbird nest just a few weeks prior. Thankfully the robins made it and flew off on their own. Wishing you a nice day. From, Mayo

V4U today. Well, the 3 wren eggs haven't hatched yet, should be any day now. The mommy wren is a busy bee, she sits on the eggs all day long, but we do see her fly in and out from time to time. More nests have popped up around our yard, it's neat to see the birds building the nests, each one is a little different.

Yesterday turned into a really nice day and hopefully so will today - even though the nights are still going down to 50 . . .

Yeppers, Lucy, mom is a teacher - she's been in 4th grade for 32 years ! har har har ! Mom tried to get to the store after school yesterday - 2 hours to make a 7 mile trip (14 round trip) Overturned garbage truck on the highway ! Ewwwwwwww . . . needless to say me and dad had to wait for our supper !

3 weeks left till mom is mine - I'm so excited I'll probably be keeping all my friends updated on my countdown ! Of course it'll be a crazy 3 weeks for her - this is when all the clerical work comes in and all the physical too - packing up shelves, etc. Then picnics, field days . . . sigh - she'll be coming home tired some days !

Have a good Friday ! Love you ! Cookie

Oh, yup, those baby geese grow super fast! Sad that the swans did not have any babies--wonder if something got to the eggs, or they did not hatch? Mom says she misses seeing the geese and the babies--she has a new job, and the only birdies she sees are the seagulls, as it is close to the lake. I don't like seagulls. They are so...noisy!

Hoping you are having a great day! And it is almost the weekend! YIPPIE!

  HI LUCY BLUE!!!
Thanks for your votes...I sure am getting excited now...Only 2 more days to go...V4U...Sorry about not getting my campaign blog out earlier but Mom had some appointments today...Today I will talk about Future Trends....The growing interest in cockatiels stems partly from the development of the various colors.Whereas several colors of budgerigar are known to have been seen first in flocks in Australia,no mutation of the cockatiel has ever been recorded from the wild.In their native habitat,cockatiels range widely over frequently inhospitable terrain in search of food and water.They have evolved their powerful flight to enable them to cover these large distances;at the same time,their rapid and high reproductive capacity is an essential ingredient for the survival of the species in a region where rainfall-and therefore a supply of grasses and other green food-can be highly unpredictable.At present, the natural appearance of the cockatiel has been little altered by selective breeding, in noticeable contrast to the budgerigar.However,this could change quite rapidly as increasing numbers of cockatiels are exhibited.Should the trend favor larger cockatiels on the show bench,then breeders will obviously aim to conform to such requirements.This carries with it a risk that the natural grace and elegance of the cockatiel will be lost in a stampede for size in exhibition birds.Thankfully, this does not appear to be the case at present,but the risk remains,especially while there are no official standards for exhibition cockatiels laid down in many countries......Hope your Thursday has been a nice one...Many birdie wing hugs...Sam :o)

Still very warm and now it's sticky icky too ! Storms were supposed to come through during the night and drop it like 20 degrees, but they didn't ! It'll probably happen right about when mom has to leave for work ! har har !

Things are starting to wind down at school for her - next will be all the craziness of paperwork and cleaning up for the summer - then in just 19 short days she'll be mine ! Full time !

  HI LUCY BLUE!!!
Oh that is so sad if something happened to the Swans eggs...That poor Momma Swan....Thank you for your vote.... Sure appreciate it....V4U...Today my campaign blog I will give you a bit of information about the cockatiel that Mom thought was also interesting to know...The earliest reference to the cockatiel dates back to 1792,when it was described for scientific purposes.However, it was probably not until the late 1830s that cockatiels were first brought to Europe-at about the same time as the budgerigar-and for many years the cockatiel remained in the shadow of that other popular member of the Australian parrot family.Not until the 1950s did cockatiel mutations start to appear, and during recent years the cockatiel has finally achieved a strong international following, with numerous colors established and new color combinations still being developed.As its popularity increased cockatiel enthusiasts founded specialist societies that attract an international membership, in various countries,exhibition standards have now been established for the different varieties,including the normal grey.The cockatiel is classified as a member of the cockatoo family and was originally named the cockatoo parrot.The word cockatiel may have been introduced by a London bird dealer who shortened the Dutch word 'Kakatielje' which translates as 'small cockatoo'. Have a nice Tuesday...May birdie wing hugs ...Sam :o)
