  Hello Bilou, Hello Strawberry~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It got cold here! I guess summer is over for me! It was in the 40's this morning. It's a good thing that mom decided to clean out the heater in the bedroom because I just might need it before too long!
It was very noisy here this morning. The gardeners were here using their blowing thingy and the maintenance guy was up on the room blowing out the dryer vents! How is a bird suppose to get a beauty nap with all this racket? It's quite now but I'm more interested in playing with mom than the nap at the moment!
The last time they blew out the dryer vents they clogged ours up! It took months to get it fixed since every time they went up to clear it out, they were cleaning out the wrong vent! Our neighbors had the cleanest dryer vent in town!
Mom is going to turn the dryer on and check it out right away!
Have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Bilou, Hello Strawberry~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I am starting a grass roots campaign for my friend Hulk #149144. I have added his avatar on the calendar page to make it easy for every bird to vote for him. He is one of my oldest friends here on the BC and I would love to see him be honored with the BOTM badge!
Hulk is a Jardine Parrot. They are one of the largest of the Poicephalus species! They are from all over Africa and were called Congo Jack parrots. An English man named Sir William Jardine took one back to England in 1849 and of course called it the Jardine parrot! I think Congo Jack is a cooler name!
Thank you for you time and I hope you will be able to get by and leave Hulk a vote everyday this month! He has always been there for every other bird who has run for BOTM so I hope we can thank him by getting him into the castle!
Enjoy your day!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

Happy Thursday. Still Hot. Still Muggy. Still Miserable here.

Dad shared a favorite movie with Uncle Geno Tuesday night: "PILLOW TALK" (1969) with Rock Hudson and Doris Day. Dad never tires of this fun movie.

Dad, JJ and Uncle Geno watched a fun movie Wed evening: "CITY ISLAND"
with Andy Garcia and Julianna Marguiles (2009), one of those small films that works well.

I hope you had a wonderful day! Still cooler here and still rainy. There were suppose to be thunderbooms this afternoon but it never happened.
We did lots of chores today including cleaning out the pantry again. Mom has no idea why it gets so messed up. Probably from dad since he is always looking for something he can't seem to find. It is usually right in front of him!hehehehehehe
I got bored during the pantry cleaning so I did a lot of yelling. Mom kept stopping and coming over to sit with me. I finally decided to take a nap and let her finish up.
Have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and sending big hugs your way!

  Hello Bilou, Hello Strawberry~
I hope you had a wonderful day! I still have rain but it makes it seem much more normal than all that sunshine and hot temps! Crazy that we would miss the rain!
We didn't do much today. Mom grabbed a nap when she got home and then took the kids to work. She stopped by the market on the way back and got me some grapes! They were yummy.
Tomorrow we have lots of chores to get done so I'll be supervising it all! We are going to be home together so that is all that matters to me!
There are still lots of people up here who do not have power. It may take a few more days to fix it all since there were a lot of trees that fell down and some of the roads in the rural areas are still blocked. At least the wind has been calmer for the last few days so no more trees coming down!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a great day!! Still rainy and windy up here but the wind is not as bad today! Good thing cause lots of people lost power. There are tons of trees up here and a lot of them came down. Branches too. Mom's store was the only one with power so there were lots of people shopping there yesterday. They told mom that the line for the gas station was out on the street! They were the only ones in the whole town who had working gas pumps!
I'm busy munching on an apple while mom gets my notes done. Mom doesn't have to take anyone anywhere today so we spent the morning playing!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still very pretty here and only in the 80's. Rain is suppose to come back for the weekend and we sure could use it! We are not use to being so dry for so long. Everything is yellow and I want it to be green again!
We are getting laundry done today. Mom has to work tonight but she'll have Friday night off. She is going to the library later to get me more story books and she will see what movies they have in. Friday movie night is my favorite! Even if the movie isn't good I'll still have popcorn!
Enjoy the day and I hope you get to do lots of fun things!

Happy Wednesday from Buffalo, NY.
We are so happy that it's much cooler and very comfortable here this week.
[it makes Dad a lot less grumpy].

I'm still having trouble landing due to my recent wing-clip. I fly ok
(flit), but Dad usually has to pick me up and bring me to my destination. Glad I don't hurt myself when I stumble.

Yesterday Dad helped Uncle Geno get his dog, Lucy, back to the vet to get her stitches removed.
Lucy is a white German Shepherd - quite a large dog.

  Saturday Flitzer the Birthday Bird
Hello dear friends.
Thank you So Much for all the HatchDay Wishes....it's great to be 7.
It was such a great day that I started doing my 'happy squawk' in the evening and wouldn't stop for a long time. Daddy laughed and laughed.
- - -
Dad gave me a happy day filled with treats and surprises. I even got Lemon Sherbet for a yummy birthday dessert.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Uncle Geno hosted another Marilyn Monroe Move Night on Thursday. They watched:
"The River of No Return" (1954) which was fun.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Dad and Uncle Geno went to the theater to see a German Film called "PHOENIX".
Dad called it his favorite film of the year so far. Sadly some of our friends have fear of subtitles - isn't that silly. Many miss out on such good films this way.

Thanks again for your gifts and wishes. ~Wings Up~

  Hello Bilou, Hello Strawberry~
I hope you are having a perfect kind of day! I just finished some apple, cinnamon, pecan oatmeal! I must say I think this is my favorite so far! I like all the oatmeal that mom makes but the pecans were a surprise!
The rain storm we had yesterday did not help with the fire on the other side of the mountain. I guess it made it worse since it caused more wind. I feel so bad for all those people.
Mom went back to work last night and of course there was tons of work waiting for her. There is a back up person but she is in the garden and they don't want her to do anything but the garden. Kind of makes it useless to have a back up if they are not going to be able to do the work! Mom will catch up eventually.
Believe it or not, they already have the Christmas jammies out for the little ones. Mom says the baby that can wear it has not even been born yet! Talk about planning ahead! The Halloween ones are out too and all the Autumn decor. That stuff is nice to look at but I don't think anyone is ready to think about Christmas yet.
Enjoy the day!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Bilou, Hello Strawberry~
I hope your day is going great! I've been out sitting with mom all morning and I'm having a wonderful time. I chewed on her shoelace, preened a bit. Chewed on her jeans, preened a bit. I am in a chewing, preening kind of mood today! This molt I am going through is horrendous! Mom is wondering how wild Amazons fly when they lose 4 tail feathers while molting! I can't fly so how should I know??
My play cage was all nice and clean when I came out this morning. Mom said there were so many fuzzy feathers everywhere that it took forever! When she finally finished up the cage, Merlin went over and threw up right in front of it! Hairballs!! Guess he didn't want to feel left out with all the cleaning going on!
There was suppose to be no rain this week but mom went to the car wash so of course it rained this morning! I just hope it continues on over the mountains and rains over there. There are so many fires there and they could really use some rain!
I hope you have a very fun day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Hello from Buffalo.
hot muggy days and nights. Last night was 79 - at night - ugh.

Today will be torrential rains all day - then it should cool down. Dad says if he needs to build an Ark, at least it will be small - just a Daddy-n-Bird Ark.

Dad and Uncle Geno went to see the movie "THE GIFT" yesterday. Dad liked it a lot -said it was very creepy and glad it was different than expected. Dad says they went to the movies to get away from the heat and humidity, but happy he enjoyed the film as well.

I hope you are having a lovely day! It's been nice here so far. It's moms last day of vacation. Bummer! She has to go back tomorrow night and I am not happy about that. She tells me we will have plenty of time to spend together so not to worry.
We are still working on the Linen closet. There is lots of stuff in there! We have been able to get rid of a bunch of stuff so far and it's looking good!
We read that we are suppose to have 3 big snow storms between December and February this winter. It was in the Farmer's almanac. They were pretty right on with the summer prediction so we tend to believe them. Not looking forward to that. At least when you know ahead of time you can prepare.
I hope you have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!

I hope you had the most wonderful day ever! It was nice here. We are still having sunshine but it's not really hot.
We spent the day cleaning. It took forever to clean the mini blinds but at least that does not have to be done too many times a year! We washed the drapes and cleaned the fireplace too. The living room looks good now and tomorrow we will pick another room to do.
Dad come home this afternoon. He has to take that 34 hour break so he'll be here until Wednesday. He's already gone to sleep since he was up all night. He did make sure to give me a goldfish before he went to sleep! Do I have him well trained or what? hehehehehehe
Tonight mom and I are going to watch Star Trek Into Darkness. I like that movie and we think Zachary Quinto is fabulous! He has done Leonard Nimoy proud!

Saturday Dad and Uncle Geno took me for grooming - wings, beak and claws. The woman was trying to even out my wings and took a little too much off and I can't fly well right now - Dad helps me get around as I tend to fall instead of landing well.

On Sunday Dad went to see the latest Woody Allen film "Irrational Man". Many are giving it negative reviews, but Dad liked it. He thinks a lot of the negativity is from people going into the movie expecting a typical Woody Allen comedy, when it's not. The film takes interesting paths.

Sunday evening Dad and Uncle Geno watched "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" which was very silly n fun.

I hope you all enjoyed your Sunday. It was quiet around here. Mom had some stuff to get done and I just hung out and played for a while. Then I wanted to sit with mom so we did that for a few hours. It was fun!
We are having a short vacation for the next 4 days so I suppose I will be doing lots of supervising. Dad will be home tomorrow. He has to deliver in Seattle and then take a 34 hour break. There are very strict rules about how many hours he can drive and how much of a break he has to take. There is a computer in the truck that tells him exactly how many hours he has left to drive in a day! The truck will actually shut off if he goes over! Such amazing technology!!!
Have a great night!

Thursday Dad and Uncle Geno went to The Erie County Fair - Dad's first time there in many years.
A nice sunny day, but not too hot. They got in and out before the big afternoon crowds.
--
Thursday night Dad and Uncle Geno went to see the movie "APOLLO 13" playing for $3.00 at the old Riviera Theater. Before the film they played the old Wurlitzer Organ -always fun.
The movie was fantastic. Dad had never seen it on the Big Screen before - wow.

Terrible Thunderstorms and hail last night - big storms scare me - and Dad doesn't think much of them either. Hope we have a clear evening tonight as Dad has an outdoor party.

  Wednesday Flitzer
Hi from Flitzer.
--
Dad spent most of Tuesday helping Uncle Geno with his White German Shepherd, "Lucy".
Lucy had a growth on her leg and needed surgery.
--
Lucy hates the vet and (being a big dog) can be hard to handle in these situations.
--
Although the surgery went well, Lucy had a hard time coming out of the anesthesia.
We got her in Geno's truck, but she wouldn't come out - even into her home or yard.
It took a long time of patience and attention - we finally got her (reluctantly) out of the truck.

Have a great day. ~Wings Up~

I hope your day has been just fantastic! It's warm and cloudy here so you know what that means! Muggy! Don't like that much but it doesn't happen much.
The guy came to fix the dryer today. It was the plastic part that covers the drum that was making it squeak. Mom already knew that since she watch a youtube video and had already opened it up to take a look. It is not squeaking anymore and it is drying the stuff so it's all good!
It's our weekend now but I don't know what we are going to do yet. There are lots of chores to get done so I'm sure we will be doing that for a while. I think playing with me should be high on the list too! Actually, I think it should be the only thing on the list!

  Flitzer Sunday
Happy Sunday Squawky Friends.

Many of you have asked about "Goetta", which my Dad's Mom brings him each year:
--
Goetta is a meat-and-grain sausage or mush of German inspiration that is popular in the greater Cincinnati area. It is primarily composed of ground meat (pork, or pork and beef), pin-head oats and spices. Pronounced gétt-aa, ged-da or get-uh in Americanized pronunciation.
This dish probably originated with German settlers from the northwestern regions of Oldenburg, Hannover, and Westphalia who emigrated to the Cincinnati and Dayton area in the 19th century.
--
Goetta was originally a peasant dish, meant to stretch out servings of meat over several meals to conserve money.
--
Glier's Goetta, the largest commercial producer of goetta, produces more than 1,000,000 lb annually, around 99 percent of which is consumed locally in Greater Cincinnati.

I hope you are having a great day! The Bad Mom went out to get stuff done for the car yesterday and was gone for a long time! I was not happy at all! Then this morning the Bad Mom drove Jennifer down to her dad's house! She was gone for a long time again!! She really should know that she needs to be here doing what I want to do!!!! Anyway that is the reason I didn't get any notes out yesterday. The car had to have a smog check, then mom went and bought an expensive sticker and then got the oil changed. She tells me it's all important stuff but it was very boring around here with just dad and the cat to keep me company! I expect her to make it up to me somehow. Maybe some corn bread!
I hope your day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been very nice here this morning. Dad closed the window up in the bedroom because Merlin was howling again!hahahahahaha Mom told him welcome to her world!
Cleaning going on around here today! Mom was doing the bathrooms while dad moved my cage out and swept up my latest art project. Guess I'm going to have to spend the day making a new one! I really didn't like him moving the cage with me in it. He even used the evil vacuum when he was done sweeping. I am not very happy with dad right now!
Our dryer is squeaking so they are going to come over and take a look at it later. Mom knows what it is already since she opened it up to look. She watched a youtube video! It's a plastic thing that covers the drum. It's a very old dryer so we are hoping to get a new one. At least it still works!

Russell Wilson is going to be a Seahawk until 2019!!! I guess he knew how much this 12th bird wanted him to stay! He is going to get a gazillion dollars! Well close to that I think! Now we have to worry about whether or not they have the money to keep the other players! I'm sure they make a whole bunch of money on merchandise so I think they can afford it! The players jersey's are 100$ each and this state is filled with people wearing them!

TGIF!!! I would like to thank each and everyone of you for your votes and support. What an awesome month we had. Time sure does fly by when we have fun.Thank you auntie Mary,Auntie Teri and auntie Gail for the awesome pictures. Thank you Kiddo for giving me this honor and thank you Falco,Kaji and Chyna for the nomination !!! I love you all!

Navajo code talkers conclusion
Recruiters visited the Navajo rez and selected 30 code talkers. One dropped out so 29 started the program.Many of these were young Navajos who never left the Rez,making the transition to military life more difficult.Yet they perserved.
They would work night and day helpingto create the code.Once the first 29 were finished,two remained behind to train future Navajo code talkers.
The program was successful.The entire Navajo Nation had 50,000
people.By the end of the war 420 Navajo men worked as code talkers !!!

I salute all the Navajo Code talkers and our U.S soldiers. Please say a prayer for our military. They work hard to protect all of us and our freedom !!!

Much love to all of you

I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I think it's hot just about everywhere now. I think we are going to break the record for the most days over 90 today. I guess they have been keeping the record for about 120 years.
Seahawks training camp starts tomorrow and Taima the hawk is coming over for a meet and greet! Wish we could get up there to see him but mom has to work the whole weekend. Everyone is very excited for football to start again. It seems rather dull around here without it!
We are finishing up laundry and getting things ready for mom to go back to work tonight. It's not much fun but I do have some new toys to keep me occupied!

  Hey Bilou...
Happy Thursday !!! Did I throw you off with those questions ??? It was all in fun and games heehee !!! I did say I was going to surprise you...Raffi got every answer right !!! Congrats Raffi!

In honor of our U.S military...Today I'm going to talk about Navajo Code Talkers. They are from the Navajo nation...

In U.S history the things that happened to us Native Americans were tragic.Invaders and settlers took most of our lands and misunderstood our culture and killed us in the thousands.
Then during World War 2 ,the U.S goverment needed our Navajo Brothers to help.And though they suffered greatly from this same government our Navajo brothers proudly answered the call to duty.

Communication is very essential during any War.
Codes were often used,but broken.In 1942 a man named Philip Jonhston thought of a code that would be un breakable by the enemy.
A code based on the Navajo Language...

Be here for the conclusion tommorow...
Thank you for your votes
Love
Panther

PS Watch wind talkers starring Nicholas Cage.Awesome movie about the Navajo code talkers !!!

No air-conditioning, and our upstairs apartment is an oven - even with 3 fans going....

--
Dad is away from home a lot this week helping his friend. His friend's Dad (98) is very ill and may pass soon. A sad time. Fortunately I get lotsa hugs and treats and fun time when Dad is around.

Enjoy the day. ~Wings Up~

  Hello Bilou, Hello Strawberry~
I hope you are having a fun day! I supervised the turtle tank cleaning and now I am sharing some oatmeal with mom. I have dried cranberries in mine and she has raisins in hers. I don't like raisins much.
The rest of our morning will be spent cleaning bathrooms and finishing up the laundry. Not very exciting but it has to be done. We finally got some rain back so I am enjoying that. Who knew I would end up missing rain???
I have my gifts for my elders and am going to drop them off at the Milonga page. I'll be there but will be silent cause mom will be sleeping!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

Hello from feisty Flitzer

A nice Friday evening with Dad and Uncle Geno.

They did step out earlier to go to the movie: "SOUTHPAW" with Jake Gyllenhaal
(great performance, but predictable film) and then to their favorite place for Chinese Food.

A warm and sunny Saturday ahead.

  Hey Bilou...
Happy TGIF !!!

Before I say anything I would like to introduce you to my second oldest brother Circling Eagle Bigfoot...He's the dancer on my profile picture. My mommy made everything he's wearing.
We all call him Eagle for short heehee !!!
Eagle is my second oldest skin bro. And on this picture he was only 7 years old. The elders in my family taught him to dance the right way.
He's a Northern Traditional dancer and being on the Powwow Trail all his life he started winning in Powwow dance competitions all over the US.
He is also well known and respected throughout the Powwow circut and Native American land.

My mommy went to Bank of America in Norco and she saw a painting of him on the banks wall.
It said young Native American boy. My mommy contacted the artist Francis Frazier who took a picture of him dancing and she said she had been working on painting his picture for many years and his picture traveled all over the U.S with her...
Anyway my mommy wanted to buy the picture from Francis but she said it was sold to a customer who wanted it. BUMMMER !!!
She told my mommy she would have given it to her...

Let me get back on track now heehee !!!
I'm going to talk to you about Powwows.
There is Northern protocol and Southern protocol Powwows. My tribe is Northern so our powwows we go to are all Northern protocal Powwows...

We have a variety of dance catagories such as Northern Traditional, Northern grass dance, Men's Northern fancy dance...
The women have womens Northern traditional buck hide or cloth dresses, Jingle dress dance, and womens Northern Fancy shawl dresses...

Some powwows are traditional and social and some powwows are contest and pay off with big money to the winners...

At Powwows we eat lots of fry bread and Native American tacos and chili stew. At night we are still eating frybread with hot coffee
or hot cocoa.
Every Powwow we went to we always met lots of powwow buddy's who stays our buddy's for life.
Some Powwows last all weekend and some over night.
Being there is awesome and magical with lots of love between different tribes.
A powwow with different tribes are called intertribal...

Thank you for your votes
Love Panther

Tomorrow I will continue with the singers and drummers at Powwows

  Hey Bilou...
Happy Thursday !!!

Because of lack of time I have to make this blog short and to the point !!!

The Battle of little Big Horn... Custers last stand...

In late 1875 Cheyenne and Sioux Warriors were mad over the continued raids of Custer and his men going into our sacred lands and the black hills...

Our tribes gathered in Montana with great War Chiefs ready to fight for our tribes and our lands.
The following Spring two victories over the U.S calvary gave us strengh and spirit to fight on.

In the summer of 1876 was Custers last stand...
Custer and his men came to raid our camps and kill more of us.
Thinking there was only women, elders and children there they rode their horses into a trap !!!

As they approached what they thought was a camp with women, elders and children they got surrounded and out numbered by warriors from my tribe and the Sioux...

On that day only 60 warriors were killed and 262 men with Custer were killed in less than an hour.
What a time of victory it was for us !!!

History say's that Custer's body was found unmutilated and naked.
No thats not the truth...Custers body was never found !!! He was seen being killed. By our Warriors. But his body never found...
Some beleive that Custers body was put into a mass grave with his fallen men !!!
He dose not deserve a decent burial with honors and recognition.
Custer was by all means a coward and a cold blooded killer !!!

To this day the warriors have passed down from generation to generation. The sacred hat and clothing that belonged to Custer.
He was stripped naked when he died so the warriors could stake claim and victory !!! One of our tribe's are the keepers of the sacred hat...I can't tell you who because of the sacred vow of silence we made in those matters...

So the elders told us that's what really went down.Generations upon generations of our families have been told the real truth.
Trust me your hearing this first hand from real elders that were there and witnessed the battle. We are the real deal !!!
This is told the same way from generation to generation.

To this present day my tribe will go to the sight where we won victory over Custer and offer sage to our fallen warriors.
When it's quite we can hear the ghosts screaming out in the battle field and when we close our eyes the spirits of our fallen Warriors will take us with them on the battle feild and we can see things that went down that nobody outside of our tribes can see...

Like we all say History is a lie agreed upon. How do these so called historians know if they were not there ??? They just agree upon things because they don't know...They all guess at it and agree upon it.

Thank you for your votes
Love Panther

  Hello Bilou, Hello Strawberry~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still cooler here and it feels wonderful. We are suppose to get some rain later too! It feels more like what the Northwest should feel like.
We are getting chores done today since mom did not do much this last week! It's catch up time and I have to say it's pretty boring. I want to come out of my play cage but mom has to take Jennifer to work so I have to wait until she gets back! I don't know why she doesn't trust me to be out when she is gone!hehehe
Mom tried calling dad this morning but he didn't pick up. He'll call back later. She needs to tell him that our rent is going up nearly $200. He is going to be pretty upset but everywhere in town is the same. Mom and Ian checked out all the places around here online and most are even higher. We are still going to be $50 below what new renters have to pay. They are talking about rent control in Seattle so every other city is kicking up the rents before that happens here. It's sad since they finally got the $15 minimum wage in Seattle and now everyone is going to have to pay more for rent. Things will never get better for people if they keep raising how much everything costs!
I hope your day is just perfect and that you get to do lots of fun stuff!

  Hey Bilou...
Happy Humpday !!!

I had a change of dates for The Gathering of Elders PowWow...It will be on the milonga page on Saturday July 25th...Indian time heehee !!! I'll let you know what time when we get it set up.

Anyone who knows an elder or if you are an elder please go to the milonga page and leave the elders name and page number.

Also if any of you would like to adopt an elder or more please go to the milonga page and leave your name and page number and who you would like to adopt.

Because of lack of time I'm going to take you through a quick truth about the Custer and the 7th calvary battle. The blogs are kind of short but true.These are true accounts passed down from generation to generation of elders in my tribe and elders in my family who was actually there. NOT HISTORY BOOKS !!!

Eyewitness accounts of The battle of little BigHorn...

When the 7th calvary made their way to Native American land they came with one intent. Genecide ,wipe us out !!!
They would wait for the warriors to leave camp and go on hunting parties. Then Attack !!!

The Women,children and elders would always stay behind and wait.
Once they were left alone Custer and his army of killers would raid our camps with no warriors there to defend the women,children and elders.

Custer had no mercy on my tribe and family. Custer and the 7th calvary would rape and kill the women and torture them and the elders by skinning them alive and make lamp shades and tents from their skin.They would throw babies and children in the fire alive and laugh as they screamed in agony and they had the nerve to laugh at them while they went through this torture dying.

My great,great,great grandfather had told my family and tribe on how they could smell burning flesh for miles and miles away. By the time the warriors would come back home from their hunting parties the whole camp would be burned down to the ground and everyone was dead.

For many generations Custer was called a hero. Do you call that a hero ???

This is a heartfelt series I'm sharing with you and my mommy stops to cry while typing thses blogs for me as she remembers the truth that has been told to her and tribal and family members for generations.

When Custer and his army of cowards won a war it was called a victory. When any of the Native Americans won the war it was called a slaughter.

All this would lead to the Battle of Little Bighorn...

To be continued tomorrow...

Thank you for your heartfelt votes and listening to the voices of our elders...

Love Panther

  Hello Bilou, Hello Strawberry~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. It's cooler and cloudy here and I'm loving it.
It's our weekend so mom took a nap when she got home this morning. I had my English Muffin in my night cage and played with a toys while she slept. She has had to go out a few times but she's home now and we are trying to figure out what to make for dinner. Anything with corn bread sounds good to me!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!

  Hey Bilou...
I'm putting you on my list !!!

Happy Tuesday !!!

We had a total of three blackouts...I hope that's all over with...We enjoyed the rain so much. It's clean and fresh and SO-CAL needed it !!!

Today I'm going to talk to you about the Gathering of elders...

Almost all Native American tribes love their elders...
On my rez we have a special day for our elders called the Gathering of elders. We do this once a year to honor and appreciate our elders.
On this special day we shower our elders with gifts,food and lot's of love.

Our elders are like diamonds to us and without them our traditional ways and culture would be gone forever. They tell us everything that happened generations ago so we can pass it on and it never get's lost.

If our tribe has an elder with no family we take them in and they spend the rest of their life with the family that takes them in.
We make sure they are happy,well cared for and loved.
We never send our elders to a retirement home as in some cultures they do that.

We never disrespect an elder and we never talk back. They deserve great respect and love and honor. We love them all !!!

Tomorrow I will be posting names of BC elders on my page.

Please adopt an elder and give me your name and their name. You will be able to hang out with them on The Gathering of elders day that will be on Friday the 24TH...

You may adopt a total of four elders per flock or bird and the same elder can also be adopted by different flocks...This is in no way a competition. It's all about our elders and the love we have for them.
If any of you know an elder or are an elder please give me the name so I can put you on my page tomorrow.
You must be 15 years old and up. We are going by bird years not hooman years heehee !!!

After all it's their day !!! Let's make it a special celebration for them !!!

Thank you for your votes
Love
Panther

I will try to get their pictures posted in my gallery !!!
