**~ 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 ~ Vote Amando #226029 for BOTM in February

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

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

24 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
Happy Birthday to Langston Hughes. Maybe because mom worked in a ghetto school, or maybe because she loved his poetry, she always remembers his birthday. Of course it's the start of Black History month as well, so that's a good way to remember him. If you don't know his poetry, Google it, it's really lyrical.
It's snowing again here, so what else is new? We are supposed to get 3 to 5 today, then it turns to rain, then it snows again overnight to make tomorrow's commute a lot of fun. Mom is supposed to work at the museum today, but our street hasn't been cleaned yet, and if it doesn't get cleaned by noon, she will call off. It's not going to be a crowded day there anyway, we suspect, between the weather and the Superbowl.
Will you be watching the Puppy Bowl today on Animal Planet? We sure will, mom loves those little guys for some reason. I think a bird makes a much better friend, but humans are funny about those furry little pups and kittens.
I hope if you're having a Superbowl party, the weather cooperates with you. We want to wish both teams good luck, but GO SEAHAWKS!
Have a great day, keep warm, and get lots of cuddles, scritches, and maybe a few extra snacks. Hugs, Willie

RAMBLINGS OF A RETIRED MIND

I found this timely, because today I was in a store that sells sunglasses, and only sunglasses. A young lady walks over to me and asks, "what brings you in today?".

I looked at her, and said, I'm interested in buying a refrigerator. She didn't quite know how to respond. Am I getting to be that age?
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
I was thinking about how a status symbol of today is those cell phones that everyone has clipped onto their belt or purse. I can't afford one. So I'm wearing my garage door opener.

It's Puppybowl day ! ! We're ready, mom took me over to the web site and we checked out the starting line up :)

Plus, with the snow coming tonight (weatherchannel says 5-8 tonight and 1-3 tomorrow), but the local station says 6-9 tonight and 5-8 tomorrow ! Either way it looks like mom will be home tomorrow to play with me :) It also means maybe she'll stay awake for more than just the PuppyBowl !

Yesterday, daddy pulled out and set up the old turntable. Then they pulled out all their old vinyl and played records all afternoon ! What a great time they had and will probably have again today ! !

My mom likes to watch me too when I nap she says I look so cute.I don't like when my mom naps when I'm not tired SD o I make a lot of noise.Other times I will nap nicely with her that's the best.
So far today the snow fall totals for the storm have been upped then they went back down again. Sure seems they have no idea where the storm is shifting to.
When mom left work tonight at 7:30 it was snowing and it was the wet heavy snow. Mom says if it keeps up with this kind of snow it's going to be a pain to brush her car off in the morning. She says she will be careful driving in the morning and is going to leave extra early to give herself plenty of time. Have a good night .

  Hi Kaji
Is your mom able to do a 401K at this job either thru them or the agency? That is where the majority of my mom's retirement money comes from, and she is just beginning to take a little bit from it this year. Of course, Dad is still working, so that helps although it is more about insurance than his pay check.

Well, no biting today, but unfortunately the one perpetrated yesterday left a very large bruise on my mom's hand. Darned thing is about 3" in diameter, so it is hard for her to forget the bite that brought it on. However since I gave her cuddles and face rubs while we were having our morning visit before the grocery run, I am a good boy and reaping the benefits.

Those benefits would be a nice sunbath which although the wind came up once was still nice since that blast only lasted for about 3-4 minutes. Then we came inside and shared the last half of Mom's chile relleno burrito from yesterday. I think I like the beans the best, but I really enjoy all of it.

And now I am sitting Mom's knee dictating my blogs. I am almost used to my new shorter nails, but I still have a little trouble gripping. Boy, do I miss my nice sharp talons....Mom, not so much.

Early this morning at 4:00am when my dad was leaving for work it was freezing and snowing like mad. In the end we only got about an inch or so more and our highs are 21 and our lows will be 12. Mom got us all cleaned and our breakfast of warm pastene/egg/veggie mix when the phone rang and skin bro was outside in the driveway at 9:15am.He had shoveled more of the driveway as the plows left more snow at the end again while they came through.Then Mom made him breakfast of blueberry waffles and some strawberry shortcake coffee and he stayed with Mom til after 2:00pm.Mom gave all of us birdie cures,nail trims for Dixie,Kallie and Candida as their nails were pinchy.Dad went to get gas this morning before he went to work and he tried to open the door for the gas tank and he couldn't get it opened,so he finally had to leave and get to work and later on in the day he finally got to pry it open,it was frozen shut.Mom and skin bro were looking out the window watching all the wild birds coming and going from the feeders and the bird house and there was a starling who was inspecting the bird house,he had been poking his head into the entry holes and then on the second entry hole he decided he was going to go inside and both Mom and dad sparrow came and chased him away,he kept trying to come back but both sparrows chased him right out of the yard.We are supposed to get another big storm on Monday of a foot or more,this is getting to be ridiculous.Skin sis is coming by from work to visit with Mom in about an hour and other than that its been a boring kind of a day.
Mom keeps trying to tell skin bro the same thing,he's gotta keep the faith and things will start to happen for him.He wants to be able to pay his own bills and not have Mom keep putting out for him but Mom can't see him falling and losing his condo or his insurance on his car.And between Nana and Mom he will never have to worry about not eating.For the last week he's been coming to Mom's house for breakfast and then he goes to Nana's for lunch and or dinner.
Would we ever love to give California all the snow we've been getting,Mom feels like she's living in Michigan where Chyna is with all this snow everyday!That's quite a bit of snow that you are getting there also,8 inches is quite a lot and enough to have to shovel.I agree with you that the groundhog will still see his shadow and we'll wind up with six long more weeks of snow and winter.Our temperatures will be really dipping down by next week and we'll be having nighttime lows all the way down to 2 degrees.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses to both you and that amazing Mom of yours!We so appreciate all the prayers you send for Mario too they seem to be working as he's been really eating good the last two days now!Loving you always and forever,my wonderful buddy!Love Dixie

  Hello Kaji~
I hope you are having a fun day! I'm done with my yelling for now and have gone back to chomping down on my veggie bowl. I got apple last night so mom gave me veggies this morning. It's fun to switch it around sometimes and as long as I get something I like to eat, I don't seem to mind!
The last load of laundry is in the washer and mom had some to put away. We seem to be doing laundry everyday now so it is not such a big deal.
There is a big line at the Starbucks next door! They are selling Seahawk Fraps! Mom treated herself to one after she renewed her license yesterday and it was yummy! It's the Vanilla cream, which mom likes anyway, with blueberries and a green tea whip on top! Seahawk colors! There are Seahawk colors everywhere up here today and I imagine tomorrow will be the same! Mom wore her 12th shirt to the DOL but the drivers license picture is only your face so you can't see the shirt! BUMMER! Almost everyone at the DOL was in Seahawk gear, even the employees! I think it's going to seem a bit dull around here without Blue Fridays!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Kaji
That must be the same storm they are predicting here for Sunday into Monday. It sounds like the same system.
King Peppino is inviting everyone to stop by his page and share in the fish fry (bake and grill, too) that he's hosting today for his last day in the castle.
It's cold and dry here today. No snow is expected until tomorrow. Mom will spend the day doing laundry and cleaning up a few things, then will go to dinner with her sister this evening. She's hoping her sister will want to come this way, so she doesn't have to drive. The driveway is still a little icy because the salt only melts at a certain temperature and it is colder than that. Of course, the sun could warm up the asphalt enough to melt it, too.
There's nothing else going on, but I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. It is the weekend, after all! Hugs, Willie

  Hi Kaji and Lizzie
Hello BC commando's, Amando here on this final day in the Brazilian Rainforest. We we took a bite out-of-crime, Sugar and Dory watched baby Armando. He was very restless and alert as he listened to the screams and calls of the angry birds. Suddenly he hears a familiar call echoing over the treetops. He replies happily. The calls continue as baby Armando replies over and over again. Captain Finny appears over the edge of the clearing, and there, following close behind are two beautiful adult Blue-fronted Amazons. The three land close to Sugar. Baby Armando stands up as tall as his tiny legs will allow him to and chirps non-stop. A lovely Zon moves closer, chirping softly in reply. The baby gets even more eggcited.
JL and Amando whistle in loud short Zon calls and the attack comes to an end. The birds leave their prisoners lying entangled in the nets and rejoin them near to baby Armando and the two wild Parrots. The wild Zon reaches forward to touch the baby gently, not certain if it is their chick after so long. The baby responds with happy chirps of happiness, "Momma? Poppa? it is me baby Armando."
The two Parrots grin happily and snuggle their stolen offspring to them. "How do we ever thank-you for saving our baby, and freeing our flockmates from the cages those evil poachers had them imprisoned in? Our flock was once very large over 80 adults but the poachers come again and again stealing them away, taking our chicks from our homes. They cut down our nest tree and stole Armando and our two other babies. We now have no home to take Armando to."
Gus speaks up happily, " we have a nest for you. BB built it to trap the poachers but we didn't have to use it. It is solid, and warm and we will put it high into a tree were you and your family will be safe."
The BC Commandos cheer as they watch baby Armando with his Momma and Poppa. The family is so happy to be together once more. "Sadly this is not the true outcome of poaching. Humans can help stop this awful trade in wild-caught Parrots by becoming our voice in the World. By NEVER buying Parrots without bands or documents showing where they originated from. Remember that many wild Parrots are sent to Europe to be shipped back into the USA. Encourage Eco-tourism as an alternative to poaching. HELP US STOP THE UNNECESSARY TRAPPING OF WILD PARROTS THROUGH OUT THE WORLD!"
Remember Paoo, what he suffered because of human greed, and also remember that many former poachers now fight on the other side of the law because of their intimate knowledge of the area and of bird habits, these poachers-turned-rangers are undeniably the most able bird conservationists available.

Boy has mom had a week ! I think she may just hibernate all weekend - and from the looks of things maybe a couple extra hours on Monday. Yup, more snow on its way ! Let's see . . . 10 inches on Tuesday, 5-6 on Friday and now 6-9 on Monday - and it's so cold nothing is melting, it just will keep piling up !

Before even coming home to see me, mom went to the store for a new coffee maker - she had to go to a couple places to find what she wanted . . . a 12 cup perculator - she thinks coffee tastes best perked ! So now she's happy :) Me too !

happy tgif day. its 6 degrees now. we are getting more snow on saturday also. dad can't shovel the driveway and mom sure can't either with her back so mom is parking at the very top of the driveway and dad has 4 wheel drive and the car just glides out over the snow. doggie had to poop so bad this morning that dad didn't have enough time to get her waterproof sock on over her splint so her splint got wet and dad had to go back to the vet to get the splint rewrapped.

we think the groundhog will see his shadow because since winter weather was so late in starting its going to take its time leaving

  Hello Kaji~
I hope you had a wonderful day! It was pretty nice around here. The fog never completely burned off but it wasn't too bad. Mom had to go get her drivers license renewed but it only took her about half an hour. She went to the library after and got me a lovely stack of new books to read.
Mom did her taxes tonight so that's all done. She is never sure if she understands everything. She used Turbo Tax so they sort of do the whole thing for you. It was free last year but she had to pay for it this year. Like I said, she doesn't understand most of it but it's done!
We did more cleaning today since it's mom's day off and she tries to get the major stuff done on Fridays. Tomorrow we will get some meals made ahead of time and decide on what she is going to buy for our Superbowl/Puppy bowl party. Mom will be sleeping when the Superbowl starts but she'll know when they win because of all the noise around here! It was the same way last year. We still celebrate and enjoy the Puppy bowl!
I hope you have a lovely evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Mom stayed home with me all day as promised. She took a early afternoon nap which I decided to make all my sound effects and say some words and whistle while she did. I think mom's love this when they are trying to nap.
She feels like she could be getting a bit of a cold her throat is sore along with having a touch of a headache and stiff neck. Wouldn't surprise her since many of her co worker's have been sick.
We are watching this snow closely that's supposed to hit tomorrow night into Sunday and sure hope it stays on the lighter side since it's my mom's weekend to work. Have a good night buddy.

  Hi Kaji
Insurance is the biggest issue with retiring. That is why poor dad is still working, but then he is on 56. He still wanted to retire early since he has a bunch saved up, but not enough to cover medical or a high priced insurance policy for he and Mom.

Well, I messed up again and bit my mom this morning before she went to the gym. So she not only went with a war wound on her hand, but in zumba one of the ladies commented on a bruise on her chest Mom hadn't even noticed.....and there was a bite mark in the middle of it. Ouch! Not sure when that one happened.

I am being good this afternoon though, and I sit quietly on my mom's knee dictating my blogs. It is not warm enough for a sunbath, but it also doesn't look like the rain is going to show up. And the snow pack in the mountains (our major source of water) is only at 25%, so apparently the drought continues. When will it end? Ask the members of congress who deny there is such a thing as Global Warming....humph!

Its a dark dismal,dreary day here with clouds and rain all on top of the snow.Our highs for the day are supposed to be 38 and the lows are to be 14 and right now its 36 but it isn't even melting any of the snow!Mom can't even take Nana and herself to the dump or run any of their errands,my dad is now going to be gone again all night again as they have to do snow removal to get rid of all the snow as there's just no place to put it and we're getting more snow on Saturday.They have to find a place to put the snow now.So now my dad may be gone for more overnights.
Skin bro only has a part time job at UPS and he needs to have full time in order to be able to keep up with his bills.He's always so hungry and can't afford to pay his rent or his car insurance.Mom has been helping him out with his bills and both she and Nana have been making him breakfast,lunch and dinner.And they both send him home with whatever they bake or any leftovers they have so he will have something to eat at his condo.
Mom was so relieved when dad's car started up this morning at 4:00am when he left for work,I think your prayers really helped too!Skin bro and Mom and everyone here so appreciates all the prayers you send,they mean so much to us!
Once Mom got that old coal/wood stove going it felt really cozy and heated up the tv room so nicely!It sure took some time though as the room really got cold so fast!That really must've been so awesome to have had a wood burning furnace when your amazing Mom was younger!The basement must've been really warm and cozy from all the warm heat that it made!But Mom knows that keeping it well stoked was alot of work!She has to remember to stoke the coal stove and scrape out all the dead embers and fill it up slowly so as not to snuff out the hot coals.
Its so good to hear that you are all right there!Its going to snow here later on today and it looks like its going to snow on the weekend and into next week.Mom never got out today to take Nana to the dump and get some of their errands done,she hasn't been out all week in fact.Besides my dad working 12 hour shifts,he's gonna have to work on the weekends for snow removal.And that's at night from 10:00pm til sometime the next morning.
Then after Mom got the coal stove cleaned out and set up for the next storm and the house vacuumed,she was on her way upstairs to scrub the bathroom,when skin bro called very upset.He was on his way back from a job interview for Sears when an older man in front of him slammed on his brakes and skin bro tried applying his brakes but only banged into him,so they both got out of their cars and the man told skin bro that no damage was done and took off and Mom told skin bro to come here if he could make it and she would make him lunch and he did come down and Mom made him angel hair pasta and he sat at the table and perused his cell phone looking for more jobs and calling up about them but so far there's nothing available.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sendin

I'm with you there, buddy, I think we all want spring! Mom keeps saying winter is worse every year, and we're starting to believe her.
It rained, then froze when the snow started overnight. Today it is cold and windy. When mom walked the dogs, it was still a bit icy too. When she got home, she had to shovel and scrape the driveway so she could get the car out. Today was her shift at the center, and she was about 20 minutes late because of the shoveling. She did the avian nursery today. Right now there are 4 screech owls and about 8 mourning doves in there, as well as a blue jay and the 2 cedar waxwings. Mom was lucky. Only one of the doves got out while she was cleaning its cage, and when she finished, she was able to net it and return it quickly. She hates when she has to chase them around and they go behind the bank of cages or someplace else that's hard to reach. The staff was also training a bunch of new interns today, which is good news for everyone. Mom didn't think there would be interns there until spring.
After the center, mom went to the grocery store to pick up a few things, and now she's ours for the rest of the day. YAY! We love when she stays home.
I hope you are having a great day, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hi Commandos Kaji and Lizzie
Amando here, shhhhhh! We are just preparing to wage an all-out attack on five poachers int he Rainforest of Brazil. Make sure you have your camo hat on, and let's await JL's order to move in!
The Green Angels and Finny have found Armando's Momma and Daddy!! But have warned them that it's not safe to reunite them until we get those poachers. So even though they are very anxious to get their little Armando back, they've agreed to wait and help us. They're up there with the Green Angels and Finny right now in the tree tops tending the nets, ready to cut them down at a moments notice. Their awaiting the signal, but they're really geeked!
Jenny-Lynn and Amando stand on fallen tree limbs, Sky is perched in the tree near to the trap nest box. The Special Forces are standing, beaks ready at the net ropes. Zippy has already begun working on a rope that holds a large webbed net. Suddenly JL and Amando let out a shrill Zon whistle, the signal to begin their attack. The birds begin to chew and tear at the ropes holding the nets in place.
"WE ARE READY TO TAKE DOWN THEM POACHERS AND TEACH THEM A HARD LESSON" Sweetpepper whispers to Kiddo.
With wave of her wing JL leads the BC troops into battle, "we will do what we came here to do, and by the way you have all come together, we shall be invincible!" moving ahead she exclaims, " WE SHALL LEAD FROM THE FRONT! No more stolen parrots, no more needless suffering, are ya with me gang!" Then loudly so the startled poachers hear," Poachers, this is not your day, on this day you pay for your cruelty.'
The startled poachers turn every-which-way trying to see who has spoken. Then out of the jungle, from the sky above come the birds, screaming in anger as they swoop in for the attack. JL and Amando see the Blue-fronts crammed into wire cages and their hatred boils over. Cappy attacks the ring-leader without mercy, biting his hand hard and refusing to let go. The Special forces have the nets freed and as the five cowardly criminals try to run, the net falls entrapping them like they the innocent Parrots they have caught in the past. The air is filled with screams of outrage as the wild Blue-fronts arrive to help. The men scream in fear as bird after bird attacks, biting or pooping on them as they struggle to get free of the nets.
BonBon and Parker are gone to get the jaguars! The cats are very eggsited to help get the poachers! Their kind is also being poached for their fur! The angry jungle cats growl fiercely as they see the poachers flailing in the nets they'd set to trap Parrots. The poachers cry for help, like the Parrots they've captured but no one can hear them. Falco and Jesse free the trapped Zons from their prison, only one is injured from this group. They join in the assault on their enemies.

Well, we got a e-mail from the Infernal Revenue Service informing us that the tax return was accepted, and to expect our refund in about 21 days. Just have to love it when they move rapidly. Now he can afford to go to McPuke's or Burger Barf for a treat, ha, ha, ha....R T

Mom's been up since just after 3:30 - the plows make so much noise ! Of course she and daddy weren't thinking buying in May that their bedroom faced the road - they were young and stupid ! ! She'll probably nap when she gets home - or earlier if the phone rings about a delay . . . of course she has a couple errands to run - more wild bird seed and a coffee pot - she's going to be real cranky if she can't get it going - right now it's gurgling and gurgling and NOTHING ! ! OH NO ! She can't go to school without coffee - lots of it ! School spirit week this week ! I'll have to be ready with plenty of quaker therapy when she gets home today !

Happy Friday ! love Cookie

  Hi Kaji
while mom was feeding us this morning she looked outside and there was a big buck standing on our patio looking in the window. I didn't make a sound. the buck was very jumpy like someone was after it and it jumped down to the neighbors yard and hung around for about an hour before taking off.

when the roads are treacherous the ones you have to watch out for are the drivers that think because they have an suv they can drive fast and nothing will happen. they are the ones who lose control and crash into everyone. today started out with rain and with the rain falling were the most gigantic snowflakes i have ever seen. then it warmed up a tad bit and a lot of the snow turned to slush. now tonight it is cold again and the slush has turned into sheets of ice so tomorrow morning will be very bad for driving. at least we haven't got the big winds that were predicted

  Hi Kaji
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the temperatures of highs of 33 degrees and lows of 26. we are at 32 right now.Mom got us up and fed and cages cleaned out.Candida and Dixie got to sleep with Mom and Kallie got to stay in his sleeping box in the tv room all night.After Mom got us all settled she got dressed with her warm clothes on and boots and went out to the garage to start tackling the deck and walkway and mail box and as she opened the garage door there was skin bro tackling her side of the driveway and was she ever so glad to see him!While he was working on the driveway,Mom walked around to the other side of the house,she had to walk in the street and down our street to get there to start the walkway and mail box.Mom could barely get a small path made as the snow was so deep and so high and she made a small path all the way up to the deck and found one stair at a time and by the time she got to the top of the deck skin bro was down by the mailbox making that better and larger so the mail truck will fit in to get to the mail box.Then skin bro took over cleaning off the whole deck and he even cleared the snow off the top of the birdhouse and opened up the other entry hole for them.Mom went back inside as her arms were really aching at that point.Skin bro finished the deck and the walkway and Mom made him breakfast of waffles and strawberry shortcake coffee.Then dad called and wanted to know if skin bro would help him give his car a jump start as it wasn't working and had been in the snow for three days and skin bro said he would and hung around with Mom til 3:00pm when dad called and said he got someone at work to help him so skin bro left and Mom got dinner in the oven.Now dad called Mom and told her that he needed her to come up and bring some antifreeze and distilled water from home as his car started smoking and was running very hot so now Mom has to leave and drive on these awful roads to bring dad the stuff and she's so hoping that his car will work with this and it won't be anything more serious.Well,Mom went up and the roads were treacherous and slippery,she even slipped and skidded on the road in front of our garage.And the roads into town were no better,she was so happy that it didn't take dad too long to fill his car with the antifreeze and distilled water and it was really getting dark as they were heading home again,the snow piles were so high you couldn't see around them and it was quite dangerous with those cars that didn't even put their lights on when it was dark.Mom is hoping she just doesn't have to go out tomorrow.When dad came home she made him pork tenderloin,mashed potatoes and mixed veggies.He took his shower and went to bed as he has to get up at 4:00am and he's still on the twelve hour work schedule til further notice.Maybe Mom can get to her house chores tomorrow.
Oh how I missed you and I sure hope we don't get anymore storms like that!Mom is so happy that all the snow is now plowed and she doesn't ha

  Hi Kaji
So those insurance benes are from the company your mom works for, and not the agency that got her placed there? If so, it seems weird that they don't pay for holidays. As long as she is making good money, that's the most important thing because she deserves every penny!!

Looking forward to the rain on Friday. Sure hope it really happens. Every drop that falls is a tiny drink for Mother Earth, and she is still very thirsty here in So Cal.

Well, the dreaded deed is done. Mom called Jennifer the groomer today, and she's all healthy again. So we went to get my nails trimmed just a little while ago. Mom was amazed, because I behaved perfectly. I climbed right into the carrier, and although I did fly about a bit in the trimming room I settled down once Jennifer toweled me with my own towel which Mom brought along. I didn't even try to bite Jennifer once or squawk or anything! Mom was very proud of me. And then I gave little quiet "talkative" squawks to my mom all the way home. Now I am sitting on Mom's knee dictating my blogs. I am a bit subdued, but that is usual after a trim. I will be back to normal by bedtime.

We did get a sunbath, or rather an overcast bath today. Even though there was very little sun, it was warm enough and Mom knows the UV still comes through the clouds. And I did get my two nutriberry treat, so all was good outside. Then we came in and shared lunch. It was Chicken Poblano, and Mom always adds some of her special ground dried chile powder to it to make it really tasty. And the pasta? One of my all time favorites....even better than rice!

  Hi Kaji !
We're lucky like that too ! When the weather is bad, school is closed or delayed ! There may be a 2 hour delay tomorrow morning. There's only 1-3 inches expected but the timing puts it right when the kids are on the way to school . . .

Mom's sister works for Fuji and she can work from home too in the bad weather - it's nice that companies value their employees safety.

Tomorrow is Friday ! Hip hip hooray ! ! love Cookie

  Hi Kaji & Lizzie
Hello to all my Amazon Adventurers, Amando here with an update on events as they unfold in the Tropical Rain forest. Some of asked about those blue-fronted Amazons in the cages in my gallery. That is where our Armandos family will end up if we do not stop those poachers from trapping them for the PET TRADE. I have no doubts we will put a stop to their plans.
BonBon, Boo Boo, Pepper, Angel, Chyna, Polly, Zippy, LA and Dixie sneak off through the undergrowth to get a better look at what the poachers have been working on. Being very careful and quiet they work slowly towards the opening where the Green Angels have observed their enemies devilish work. Taking note of the area, the nets and where each poacher waits, hidden in the trees for the unsuspecting Blue-Fronted Amazon flock to arrive at their feeding grounds. Returning to the others they explain in detail the whole scene. After listen quietly, Cappy's anger grows to a frenzy of temper, "Today would be an eggcellent day to kick some poacher tail feathers." Cappy ruffles his feathers in anticipation and the look in his eyes would scare anybody.
Kaji grins,"Gotta say, Lizzie is so ready to torch those guys if you want her to. More than happy! She could do a slow roast, good fire power control." Lizzie smiles sweetly and puffs a small flame from her mouth to emphasize Kaji's point.
Ipo is more then ready for battle against the poachers. Ipo whips out her sword. "This is getting too much!!" She gets ready to fly when she feels Sophie's wing on her shoulder "this isn't your time, Ipo. We must await the other rescuers. Your turn will come soon. Now put that away." Jenny and Amando consult together with Sky, Cappy and Kaji, then standing on a rock JL clears her voice and begins to outline the plan for attack. "we will sneak up on them. The Special Forces will tend to the nets, cutting them down from the trees. Silver, you and Chuey are in charge of rope chewing, pick helpers and remove every rope you see. The rest of us will wait for the nets to drop and begin our attack. We are going to bite, scratch, chase, net, warm-up ( she grins at Lizzie) those poachers like they have never dreamed possible."
The birds cheer and high 4 one another, "Then we will return Armando to his flock safe and sound. We have to deal with these thieves first. This poaching happens everyday around the world. Innocent Parrots are stolen from nests, their flocks, many die, many suffer untold abuse and neglect just so people can get "cheap" Parrots. ENOUGH!" AMANDO YELLS.
Sky grabs BB's nest box and carries it under his wing as the BC Commando troops move into position. With the help of Elvis, Willie, Oz and Chyna they get the trap high in one of the trees.
"OK TROOPS Let's go get us some poachers" JL calls with determination as they move as one and begin their plot to stop their unsuspecting enemies.
