~*!*~THANK YOU TO ALL THE WONDERFUL BIRDIES WHO SUPPORTED ME IN MY JOURNEY TOWARDS BIRD OF THE WEEK!!!~*!*~ I am making my way to thank all of you personally for voting for me. Mom and I are sooo happy!! We could not have done it without all your help!!

**~ BOTW 20 Sept - 26 Sept 2009 ~**

I was looking for a bird to keep me company, and when Kaji's Dad took me to look for birds for my birthday, when the clerk brought Kaji over to me, he did this little head-bob thing and climbed onto my shoulder and would not leave it. He chose me!! It has been love ever since! Kaji's Dad is long gone but he gave me the best present he could have (other than leaving!): Kaji. After 19 years, it has been a joy and an honor to have Kaji here with me.

Hi! My name is Kaji ~ So glad we had this time together

I am a Meyer's Parrot from West Allis, WI.

Kaji's nicknames are Big Cutie, Turkey-Bird, Kaji the B!

26 years old   M

Meyer's Parrot

Kaji loves food, so it would be easier to say that he doesn't like bean sprouts or radishes. He eats better than most people do. He is a bread bird--he loves Sunny Millet by Natural Ovens of Manitowoc.

Mom's left shoulder, under her shirt if it is winter, his playgym, his "Love Nest" hanging toy--anyplace that he can find to snuggle or tunnel into makes Kaji a happy bird.

Kaji hates balloons of any kind, getting up early in the morning, and not being on Mom's shoulder when she is at the computer.

Mom spoils me--fresh papaya, raspberries, watermelon seeds--you name it, she will buy it for me. And the head and neck scratches are beyond compare! She even preens my headfeathers! She is the best Mom of all, takes me to the bank in the car, to the farmer's market. She even had Grandpa make this three story playgym that I love to run around on. She loves my noises--I ring the telephone, let her know I am hungry by making microwave beeps really fast. I was really lucky she came to the store that day--I have been in heaven since!

Kaji thinks he is a puppy! He will scream "Happy Puppy!" when he is particularly pleased with something. If you say the word "car", he is ready to hop in his carrier at at time of day. Loves to go places and do things with Mom..

Food? Where's the food?
and
I only look small but I am a Macaw at heart!

  hi Kaji and aunt DJ
Still chilly here - and the rain still hasn't fallen - just lots of clouds and fog - now the weather guessers are saying tomorrow the rains will fall (till Sunday) - one more day of cloudy yucky weather. That's OK though, cause if it's not raining the kids will go out for recess . . .

Mom's sinuses are feeling a bit better - hopefully the rain won't bring the pressure back. She did give me oodles of skritches when she got home yesterday - which I needed - TONS of pin feathers where I cant' reach !

Prayers for Kim - and for aunt DJ trying to convince her that a security system is necessary if she wants to stay in her house ! Have a great day ! love Cookie

  Hi Kaji
mom pulled a muscle also and it is very painful.. . Cori is doing good and so am I. since mom pulled the muscle right on her rib cage she didn't carry the bad buggies cage up to the bedroom tonight so they could fly around and harass me. it weighs about 25 pounds. because the bad budgies weren't chasing me I just sat there all evening and i didn't even eat my cricket or waxworm so mom will have to carry it upstairs for tomorrow night so I will get some exercise when they chase me. it just started raining here. we haven't had any rain for almost a month and desperately need it. its very hard for outdoor plants to enter the cold weather when the roots are so dry so hopefully this rain will help.

love Boo Boo

  bro got his car tonight and my dad had to pick him up after dad got out of work and go back to Sagamore and pick him up and then bring him back to Mashpee where the shop is at the end of Nana's street.He had the transmission thing done so he doesn't have to use the screwdriver to start the car anymore,his brake lights fixed,an oil change and a proper inspection sticker.Mom is so relieved that he got the brake lights fixed she was so scared he'd get rear ended.Mom left us behind today because she was running late but she did get home around 4:30pm and we were so happy to see her.My dad didn't get back from his rescue mission with Anthony until 7:00pm so dinner was really late even though Mom made him bacon and cheese omelet and Brioche french toast.

  Hi Kaji
This morning was such a dark morning and a dark day all day long with that annoying drizzle type rain that gets heavy then a bit lighter but you still need your windshield wipers anyway when you're driving.The highs for the day will be 63 the lows of 57 and right now its a chilly 60 degrees.Mom got dad off to work and then got ready to go to Nana's for their errand runs.She got our breakfast set up of bean mix and then got skin sis her rent money that she had asked Mom to get for her late last night and then got skin sis's mail to bring to her.Then she got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room.Mom was running late and didn't have time to harness us up so we had to stay home but Mom promised us we will be going with her on Friday.When Mom got to Nana's skin sis was right behind her and they pulled into the driveway together.Mom cleaned out Nana's heat box for her the filter was so full of dust and she got it running for her again and then fixed her stove clock to the right time.Then both Nana,skin sis and Mom got into skin sis's car and headed to Hyannis where they had breakfast at Friendly's,they still have their half off breakfasts there.They all got the Big TWO DO,2 eggs,Mom got Canadian ham,skin sis got turkey bacon and Nana got sausages.Both Mom and Nana got Brioche French Toast and skin sis got the pancakes.You get 2 of the meats and 2 of the toasts/pancakes.From there they went to BB&Beyond and Nana found a boot tray marked down she's going to use for her plants.From there they went to Kohl's and Mom found a pair of black leggings that were on clearance for $5.20 and she changed into them when she went back to the car.She was wearing her shorts and it was freezing in Hyannis and the rain hitting her made it feel colder.From there they went to Yarmouth to Bob's Discount Store and looked around but they had nothing there.They came back to Hyannis and went to Trader Joe's where Mom and Nana bought Mango waffles,Mom bought some pumpkin waffles and Nana bought our cousins some bean mix.They changed everything around when they remodeled so its so hard to find things now.Nana was getting tired so they went back to Mashpee Commons and skin sis got them a Fro Yo and while they were there skin bro texted skin sis and needed a ride from his shop to the car repair shop as his car was ready and Mom told skin sis to tell him to call our dad to go and get him.After they finished the fro yo they went back to Nana's house where Mom dremmeled Trixie's nails which were so long.Skin sis helped hold Trixie so Mom could work on her nails.Nana gave Mom some food for the CawCaws and then both skin sis and Mom left for home.Mom came home and dad wasn't there yet so she came in to see us and gave us our late afternoon snack of animal cracker and then got dinner ready for when dad came home.Dad called Mom to tell her he was waiting for skin bro so now Mom is waiting for dad to get home as she's making bacon and cheese omelets for dad for dinner tonight.Skin

  Hello Kaji~
I hope your day was wonderful! We are late today so just a quick hello from me to you!
Everything is just fine around here. Ian is feeling better today. Tomorrow he starts the heating pad instead of the ice packs.
Dad should be here in the morning so I'm sure McKenzie will be going nuts. Well, more nuts than usual.
Hope your evening is just wonderful!

  Hi Kaji
Not much is new here but that's okay. The weather has cooled nicely here we were just in the 50's for a high with the real feel in the 40's. We had some heavy down pours this afternoon.The sun came out and we finally managed to climb to 61 this evening. A few of moms co workers are already complaining how cold they are when they were the ones complaining just a month or two ago on hot they were. I guess some people are never happy. Have a good night buddy.

  Hi Kaji
Mom and I both apologize for not coming by last night!Mom thought she brought me to see you and she had so many distractions she never did get here and forgot where she was when she was doing my notes!Please accept my apologies!I never meant to never come by to see you!
Here is what happened yesterday:
This morning was a dark,dismal,dreary day with lots of rain and the highs for the day will be 69 with the lows of 56 and right now its 67.Mom got dad off to work and as soon as he pulled out of the driveway the rain began.Mom got our breakfast ready and then did some things around the house and then got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and we got our bean mix.Mom scrubbed out the kitchen sink and then vacuumed the house which she never got to finish yesterday.Other than Mom catching up on chores around the house,its going to be a boring day here,but that's just the way we love it,Mom home with us all day and maybe I'll take a nap and enjoy this sleepy old day.Its supposed to rain here all week long.So much for enjoying a nice sunny day!It's another uneventful and quiet day here with nothing to talk about of interest.Mom was just getting out of her shower when skin bro called Mom,he left a message while she was in the shower and then he called again needing a ride to the car repair shop so he could drop his car off to be worked on,(no brake lights)and go back to the shop to get his work truck to drive home and back to work in the morning.So now my dad is on his way to Mashpee to meet him at the car repair shop and bring him to Sagamore to his shop to pick up his work truck.It seems like Mom can't get a break with having a nice quiet day to the very end here without something happening or going on that's urgent.

  Hey Kaji,
Beach Day 2

After a nice long awaited lunch every birdie is full and content. Now since everyone ate so much, it’s time for a birdie nap. But where to go? Hmmmmmmm Kaji spots the open single hammock and takes it and soon you hear some snoring coming from his hammock. Pookie, Dixie and Hulk are already up in the big tree snoring away. Sugar, Chipper, Gus and Pearl look up to see where Pookie and Dixie are as they know that when they both start to snore, birds fall out of the tree. Okay let’s go on the other tree it’s still open. The four of them climb up the second big tree and are soon fast asleep with the ocean breeze keeping them nice and cool and comfy. Little Tweetie-kins is still attached to Silver and so he climbs into the other single hammock and both are soon fast asleep. Cori decides to join Sugar and the gang a last minute as she finishes her olives and twinkie snack. Laka and Cookie decide to snooze in the sleepy hut where no one will bother them or so they think. BooBoo and Polu have chosen to play some more as they didn’t stuff themselves like the others. Meanwhile the bad budgies plan for the moat pool in the sand trick didn’t quite work out with Cookie and Laka foiling it, so they make another plan to catch some uneggspected birdie. This time, they are hiding when making their plan of attack. While every birdie is snoozing the bad budgies start poking at the sleepy hut that Cookie and Laka are in. They throw some branches with brown leaves attached and quickly run away. They hear a scream, aaaaaackkkkkk!!!!!

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

Tonight is another open fridge night - clean out all the leftovers. I happen to enjoy a bite of this and a bite of that ! Have a wonderful humpday dear one . . . sending prayers for Kim - love Cookie

  Hello Kaji~
Hope you had a fun day! It was nice here!
That pigeon that likes to look in the window brought a friend along today. It is rather creepy!hehehehehe McKenzie sits on the edge of the sofa and watches them and they watch her. I watch them all and wonder why!!
Ian pulled a muscle in his back so mom had to take him to his doctor today. They told him to ice it for 2 days then use the heating pad. They want him to take 800 mg of Motrin every 8 hours for a week. It doesn't always hurt but they said taking Motrin only when it hurts won't help the muscle to heal. Mom never knew that but since ibuprofin is a muscle relaxer I guess it makes sense. Good thing he is on vacation this week because he isn't suppose to lift anything for a week.
I hope you have a wonderful evening!

  Hi Kaji
Such a gloomy day here where we just stayed in the low 60's and there was a good breeze blowing. This evening rain moved in and the temp dropped into the 50's with the real feel in the 40's.
Mom had the day off today and took off in the afternoon to head to her parronts house. She spent a good amount of time there visiting then played a few games of scrabble with her mom. From there she ran to pay a bill then stop to get a few things at target which seemed to take forever. She finally made it and has stayed put since. Doesn't she know she is supposed to spend her days off with me? So not fair well at least when she's off this weekend I should get lots of time with her. Have a good night buddy

  Hey Kaji,
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 Kaji,
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.

Oh no I can't believe Kim's house got broken into again that's terrible. Yes definitely time for them to get out of there.
Definitely feeling like fall here now mom actually will have to close the bedroom window some tonight. She is loving this cooler weather now if sll those bugs can start going away it will be even better.
Hope your week is off to a good start. Have a good night buddy.

Hope your day was fun. Sounds like your mom it going to have a busy day tomorrow. Hope she enjoys getting her hair done!
We are so sorry to hear that Kim's place was broken into again. It has to be someone in the neighborhood. Wish they could move. They shouldn't have to move but the reality is that it will not get better.
If you mom is going to visit Kim tomorrow I am guessing she is not getting out today. Sure hope she doesn't get stuck there for a long time!
Did a few chores today and some laundry also. Mom spent time training McKenzie. It's very slow going. She seems to understand what mom is trying to teach her. As for the leash pulling, it goes okay as long as there is no one else outside. When someone is out walking their dog they always come over to see McKenzie. She is so sweet and everyone wants to say hello. Mom understands that and appreciates their kindness but it's really had to get McKenzie to pay attention when she is distracted by other people, dogs or Frank the cat!!
You guys enjoy your evening!!

  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 cages and gave us our afternoon snack.So much for Mom's day off!Other than that its been a boring day here.This was the only sunny day we'll be getting for the rest of the week,its going to rain starting at 6:00am tomorrow morning and keep on raining until the end of the week.

Mom stayed close to the grill and was warmed by the hot charcoals!And there was such a wind out there that blew everything off the table and all around the yard!65 sounds like it would be warm but with those high winds like you got it sure wasn't!Oh don't you just love hanging out on Mom where its so warm and comforting?It sounds like Aunt DJ is going to have a busy day tomorrow with her errands and going to see Kim in the hospital!Please tell Aunt DJ that we here are all praying for her to get better fast!Give her our love and some warm hugs from everyone here!What fun it is to have to balance a check book,both Mom and Nana always get aggravated when they're off a few cents or even a couple of dollars!Its so frustrating when you spend so much time on trying to find where the discrepancy is in a check book!But it has to be done like you said!It was good that Aunt DJ found the discrepancy and got it all straightened out!Now just why wouldn't Aunt DJ want you to bite into her notebook?That sounds like a lot of fun for me too!
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

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 !

OH NO ! Kim's house again ? You're right - they HAVE to get out of there ! ASAP ! Maybe your sharp beak can help convince them ? Sending prayers for Kim's speedy recovery . . . love to you and mom - Cookie

  Hi Kaji
Poor Aunt DJ,having to drive in those awful downpours and its so good she was safe from the lightening bolt that streaked across the sky.Those thunder storms are so scary,and its just awful to be out in them!Mom hates it when the streets get flooded so fast that the drainage systems can't keep up with it.I'll bet that GPA was so happy to see her!And it was even better that she made it back home safely to you!
Oh poor Kim and her hubby getting broken into yet again!That just has to be so upsetting,once is bad enough but when it happened again not long after,its so heartbreaking!Who is doing this to her,its so not right that no one can find the idiot who keeps robbing their house like that,why just Kim only?I agree with you that they have to find a better place to live where they will be safe and no one will be breaking into their home!
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 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!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you and that awesome Mom of yours all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses from all of us here,Mom,dad,Nana and the skin sibs and all of the flock and Candida too!Sending good thoughts and prayers for you and GPA and Kim also!Loving you always and forever,your buddy,Dixie

  Hello Kaji~
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
Sorry you did not get to go to the farmers market. I suppose it's getting to be that time of year when it's too cold for us to go outside.
We are so sorry to hear that Kim is in the hospital. We sure will say some prayers for her. She sure has had to go through a lot of hard times! We pray she gets better quickly!
Enjoy your evening!

  Hi Kaji
So sorry to hear about Kim being in the hospital she's in good hands there.
What a gloomy day today with some pretty heavy downpours off and on until early afternoon pretty humid too. Finally tonight its cooling down looks like all week we will have highs in the 60's and lows in the 40's my mom likes the sound of that.
Sorry you couldn't get to the market yesterday hopefully you will have better luck for next Saturday.
Great win for the Packers today mom could only listen to most of the game since she was at work got to see a little when she was on her first break. Have a good night buddy.

  Hi Kaji & Lizzie!
We are having lots of rain too! We had a big storm last night and then it started again this afternoon with lots of thunder and lightning! Mom says Scion is bowling at the RB. Well, they must be having the championships up there then! Hehehe!
Have the leaves started to change yet? It must be so pretty up there! It is still in the 90s here except now that it rained it actually is 79!
The Farmers Market sounds so nice. Do they have it every weekend? Where we used to live in VA, they had one every couple of weeks in the summer and then once a month when the weather turned and not at all in the winter. Mom lived in NY for a long time and enjoyed the roadside stands and stuff up there. An American guy that owns a nursery here does a farmers market every Monday here but it is very small and always the same stuff. It is mostly baked goods and arts and crafts, not produce. My parronts don't ever go and none of the locals go or sell things there. There is a big market with tons of nice produce, flowers, meats and all sorts of stuff in the big town and of course there is a huge one in the city. The locals buy all their food in these markets and they are always packed with people and smells and foods, spices, very colorful and also very cheap! The gringo markets are super expensive!
My parronts go to Ford tomorrow to sign papers for our new car! They are getting a Ford Figo. It is a little smaller than a Fiesta. It is supposed to be white with a stick shift! Maybe they will get to bring it home tomorrow! Mom made brownies for the nice Ford sales people!
Have a nice week! Hugs to you and your family! High 4- Picabo

  Hi Kaji,
We didn't think that BC would be on this long either. Thought it was going to close down the last time they told us, which was over about 2 years ago. Hope you had a nice weekend!

Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote with the note.

  Hey Kaji,
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.

Love & hugs,

Pookie and friends

  ean 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 it will be time to snuggle with us.

  Hi Kaji
Mom agrees with you about those batteries are so small and quite difficult for anyone with bad arthritis in their bent up fingers to keep changing on a weekly basis.And for what the price of them are they should last longer than a week!Even Mom whose fingers are just too fat couldn't get them in without trouble as the battery seems larger than the compartment its supposed to fit inside!I guess who ever planned them out never had arthritis or problems with their hands or fingers!
We will constantly be keeping Kim in our good thoughts and prayers and her name goes into the special intentions book at church each and every Saturday,Mom will never forget.We need lots of special prayers for her for healing so she doesn't have to deal with all she's going through right now.Mom and all of us say prayers for her each and every day also,please know that we worry about her also and please give her a gentle hug from all of us here and give her our love.Its so sad because she was doing so good and then to have this happen to her is so upsetting!
It sounds like you had the same weather we have here with the temperature not wanting to go over 63.We don't have any humidity but the wind is tough to deal with when its already too cold out there.How awesome that Aunt DJ brought you back some tasty yellow and red tomatoes!Mom can only imagine how crowded it must've been at the Farmer's Market!They are having Octoberfest here next month at Mashpee Commons,Mom went one year and never went back again,Aunt DJ is so right that people drive nuts whenever there's some kind of event like that and there are so many of them that come out of the woodwork that you normally don't see on a regular type of day.I know what you feel like not being able to go for a car ride and get to visit Paula and everyone.We haven't been out in days now and today will be the same.
Mom and all of us here are so relieved that they kept Kim in the hospital even though she probably didn't want to stay.At least she's in good caring hands that will be able to help her feel better and that had to have been so scary for her fever to spike so high and it was good it happened while she was in the hospital so they could get it back down quickly with the ice packs around her.Please keep us updated on how she's doing and our good thoughts and prayers for Kim will always be non stop and constant,even after she gets better.
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 b

  Hey Kaji,
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.

Love & hugs,

Pookie and friends

  Hello Kaji~
Hope you are having a great day!! Only one more night for mom! She managed to miss most of the traffic last night and tonight will be the last night she has to leave early!!! Until next year!hahahahaha
Glad Lizzie is there to have the party for Chipper. I feel kind of bad that I deleted the HOF and calendar page but who knew we would still be here nearly 3 months later?
Suppose to get a bit warmer today but it hasn't happened yet. It finally cleared up yesterday just as the sun was setting! It was pretty but the clouds came back overnight and they are still here. It's Autumn so I'm lucky to see any sun up here.
Hope you and mom enjoy your day! I'm going to the night cage to watch mom sleep and finish off the toy she put in there! I have been making huge piles of wood in my food bowl! Mom says I'm making my own foraging toys!!!
