**~ 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 Flitzer #260922 for BOTM in March!

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
This morning was a cold bright sunny day with the highs to be 28 and the lows 12.Right now we're at 14.Mom got us all up early fed and cleaned our cages and then made blueberry pancakes for skin bro,he came super early to take Mom to see Nana at the hospital. Mom had a very upsetting night with Nana.Mom got a phone call at 1:15am this morning from Nana telling Mom come right away to pick Nana up at the hospital,only Nana told Mom that she was being held hostage in her own home,Mom was so upset and asked her how she got home and she just said she walked out and these cleaning ladies were after her and beat her up and took her hostage,so Mom asked her where are you,what is your address and she gave the hospitals address,Mom could hear the nurse in the background.Then the nurse got on the phone and told Mom that Nana was being combative all night and she ripped out her iv's and her catheter and she was getting two bags of blood.She was very anemic and had lost a lot of blood during surgery.They thought(nurses)that if Mom talked with Nana it would calm her down.But it didn't.It was so confusing.So a nurse had to stay in the room with Nana all night long as she kept trying to get out of bed,Mom got another call from Nana at 1:30am this morning telling her that Mom had to come right now and get her and take her home.She was being held hostage in another part of her house by these people.Then Mom got another call at 6:00am this morning from Nana telling her that she has to come and get her and Mom told her she'd be in as soon as skin bro got out of work,then the nurse spoke with Mom again and told her that he was talking to Nana about her younger days and Nana seemed to like that.When Mom and skin bro got to the hospital this morning Nana was sleeping finally,she had just fallen asleep right before they got there,so she and skin bro let her sleep,and the nurse asked if Mom was going to stay awhile and Mom said yes and if Mom left to notify them so they could get a nurse back in there to keep watch over her again.She's talking crazy and was examined by a case worker and she was ruled out from having a stroke,she could grab with her hands tightly,so they have an idea that its just the anesthesia messing up her mind.She eats very little and wants to take everything home with her,even the blankets and sheets on the bed.She even wants to pack up all the food she has to take home with her.Mom just called her and she's told Mom that she was at Stop&Shop doing her grocery shopping and then she's going to an exercise class and for Mom or skin bro to pick her up right now!
Sorry for the short blog,Mom has had another very long day at the hospital,she was there from 9:30am to nearly 8:00pm with still yet another long long day for tomorrow again,how long does it take for her to get lucid?This is too upsetting for Mom.This is definitely not the Nana she and we all know.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you and that sweet Mom of yours all my love along w

  Hi Kaji
The bouncy balls are supposed to be here on Monday, so I will let you know how I like them. Mom is hopeful, but mostly I require a bell in my toys so we shall see. They were cheap enough, Mom says it is OK if I don't like them.

OK! Mom and I were able to log on to BC on our very first try today! Hopefully that means they got the problem solved. Sure hope so, because Mom almost gave up on it yesterday.

Well, Mom is on page 561 of that 650 page book she is reading, but that's OK because it is only book one of a trilogy. Mom already has book two, so there is plenty of "reading in Kiddo's room" material on hand....and of course, there is always her kindle which is loaded.

No sunbath today! It is downright cold out there for So Cal at 56 degrees right now. They were calling for a high of 65 today, but it doesn't look like it is going to make it. And then Mom just had an Ensure for lunch after the gym instead of a wrap to share with me, but that's OK because it's Friday and that means take out for dinner. Mom will share hers with me for sure.

  Hello Kaji~
I hope you are having a lovely day! I had a lovely cranberry scone for breakfast so it's been a great day so far! The gardeners are here but since it's raining they are not going to get much done! I suppose that it will be all bush trimming and sweeping today so it won't be too interesting, Suppose I'll have to find someone else to yell at today!
Mom is cleaning today so I will just supervise and wait for the cooking to start and see what is on the menu for the day!
I do hope you enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Kaji
Mom called Aunt Rose last night, and was going to post an update, but there's already one on the calendar page.
Yes, mom's eyes are holding their own so far. With any luck, it will continue. I think last time, she went for about 4 months without a shot. Maybe that will happen this time, too.
We were surprised to see Divo as Angel of the Day today. Thanks for remembering him.
Mom was at the center this morning as usual, and had the RVS room to clean. There was only one groundhog in there today, as well as that mean raccoon, and 5 bats. The good news about the bats is they are all in one terrarium. That's also the bad news! It's hard to keep track of who's been fed, and the white out was nowhere to be found. They all ate, mom thinks. They are so cute when they drink, too. Mom gives them water in a 1cc oral syringe, and their little tongues just lap it up from the tip of the syringe.
After the center she went to the supermarket to get us fresh veggies and to get herself some juice. Tomorrow she has raptor class at the center, it will be on medical handling for raptors, we think. They might redo the mammal handling class, which is great, since mom missed it. She also told them already that she would miss next week's raptor class because that's the day she helps out at Biscuits Bingo. Hopefully they will do something to make sure mom qualifies for raptor handling, since she's been doing it for 13 years.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of warm cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

Dad's Special Movie Memory:
As kids we would get to a movie theater once in a while. Mostly for a Kids Matinee.
We almost never visited the Refreshment Stand. There was one special time which was an exception.
Dad was treated to a special movie with his Mom. They went without the rest of the family -and It was an evening showing, She even bought him popcorn. Can't recall if it was a Birthday or whatever - just that it was a special night.

The film was "MARY POPPINS", which, ever since has been a special movie for Dad.

We spoke earlier this month about how a few notes of music can make a movie-memory come sweeping back. Any music from ‘Mary Poppins’ makes Dad think of that special Movie Night with his Mom.

Come visit me, Flitzer loves Mary.

Last night, pops took Mom to 5 Guys burgers and fries, for a quick dinner. they were just pulling in the driveway at home, and heard all kinds of fireworks going off. Pops wanted to know what idiot was doing that at this time of year. Well, he turned on the 10 o'clock news and the lead story, was there was a police involved shooting just minutes after they left. That place is just 1/2 mile from the house. If they would have been there another few minutes they would have been in the middle of it. R T

Thanks for liking my pic. Mom took it this afternoon. I was pretty good about it so it didn't take too long. I even sat on her shoulder and checked the pics to see which one I wanted on my page.
Yeah, this cold is getting old! Caribbean sounds so good to me too.
Is your mom still walking my the lake? She must be frozen!
Tonight we'll be down to -22 degrees. Dad has the generator ready to go ... just in case! They cleared the roads down to the ice, greyt job!! We should see some sun the next few days. Hurry SPRING!

  Hi Kaji and Lizzie
the nurse didn't have any interest in any of us birds. i think my making the sound of the phone ringing made her nervous. i make the sound when i am happy and it sounds just like the phone ringing and ringing and ringing.

the nurse asked the same kind of questions like you would answer if you were filling out forms in the doctors office. then she asked question like do you go to the dentist and eye doctor, excetera. it was a wast of time. then the nurse turns around and bills this to the health insurance. its almost like a scam. anyway she was young and very nice and probably would have left sooner if dad hadn't talked so much. at least mom has the house fairly clean now.

My balls should be here on Saturday. One question: will they bounce on carpet, or do we need to play with them in the kitchen or bathroom for the tile?

Quick blog today since Mom wasn't able to log on to BC at all earlier. I am already in bed, but I told her what to say for me.

I actually got a sunbath today! It hit 73 degrees, so Mom got me out there right at noon and it was lovely. Then we came in and had a turkey, pepper jack cheese and spinach wrap for lunch. Now why does she have to load all that spinach on there? I accidentally ate some, and yikes! That stuff is good for you! I must admit I do like that spicy cheese though.

This morning was another cold morning here and it started snowing again a little after 10:00am this morning.Mom got us up and fed us and quickly cleaned our cages and swept our room a little as skin bro was on his way over to pick her up to take her to the hospital to be there in time for Nana's hip surgery.Mom had tried calling the hospital all morning to find out when the surgery was going to be and finally after being bounced around from one floor to the other she talked to someone who told her it would be at 1:00pm.Skin bro stopped at Nana's house to check on my cousins,Bella and Trixie II.Skin bro is taking really good care of them.Mom changed out their papers and skin bro gave Bella more to eat before we took off for the hospital.Mom had called her sister this morning to tell her about Nana and she met us at the hospital shortly after we got there.Nana was so tired as she got no sleep all last night because of the severe pain she was in and while Mom and skin bro were there they took more blood from her asked more medical history questions,gave her more meds for the severe pain she was in and then the surgeon came and marked her leg in purple ink that was to be operated on.She never got in at 1:00pm and it was sometime after 2:00pm that they finally brought her down to the OR.The dr told us it would be about an hour and a half for the surgery but Mom and her sister and skin bro were sitting in the waiting room for three and a half hours waiting for word.Mom and skin bro hadn't eaten anything all day and were quite tired and bored just sitting there waiting and worrying!When Nana finally came back from the OR the nurses did their thing with her again,blood pressure,temperature,etc.then Mom,her sister and skinbro could go in and see her.She was so nauseous and they had brought her a tray of jello,chicken broth,tea and apple juice but the nurse didn't want her to eat any of it so she told Mom and skinbro and her sister to eat it,skin bro had the apple juice,Mom's sis had the jello and Mom tried some of the chicken broth but didn't like it!Nana will be in the hospital for three more days and then by Sunday they will transport her to a rehab center,she doesn't want to go and if she has to go there Mom wants her to go to Spaulding in Sandwich and her sister wants her to go to JML.Nana sides with Mom if she has to go she'll chose Spaulding!Its been another really long day for Mom she's been at the hospital with nothing to eat or drink all day again and didn't get home til 7:00 tonight and my dad came home shortly after that!Then Mom had to get my dad something for dinner and they were having dinner by nine tonight,Mom gave him another heat and eat dinner with mashed potatoes,poor dad hasn't had much of a good dinner in days now!Mom is just too tired by the time she gets to come home!

Mom keeps saying she's done with winter, but it's not done with us yet. Spring is less than a month away though!
Please keep Carmela Cannata, Rose's mom(Dixie, Kallie, Peepers), in your thoughts and prayers. She fell and broke her hip, you can see details on the calendar page.
We are doing a very short c/p today because mom just got back from the eye doctor. She didn't need a shot today, which is great news. She does have dilated eyeballs, though, which is not fun. It always takes a long time for her eyes to get back to normal after the visits to the specialist. She thinks they use something stronger than what her normal eye doc uses.

  Flitzer on Winners and Classics
Kiddo raised an interesting topic: Films that did Not win The Academy Award for 'Best Picture', but they are now classics, many times surpassing the Oscar-winning film.
--
in the Awards Game there has to be a winner, and losers. There will be endless discussion as to outcomes, but only time makes a film a true Classic.
A couple of examples:
The Year: 1941. The Oscar-Winning film, "How Green was My Valley" [a personal favorite and a wonderful film], but the nominee that did not get the award was "Citizen Kane" which many feel is one of the Greatest Films Ever Made.
--
The Year: 1952. The Oscar-Winning Film, "The GreatestShow on Earth"
...same year as "High noon" and "The Quiet Man"
--
The Year: 2005. The Oscar-Winning Film, "Crash"
...same year as "Brokeback Mountain", a film which many consider a Classic.
= = =
Will this year's winner, "Birdman", remain considered the Best of the year?
or will “American Sniper”, "Boyhood" or even "The Grand Budapest Hotel" be remembered...only time will tell.

Why is it on the really cold and windy nights ... the power goes out? This is not fair. It doesn't happen on a nice summer night.

  Hi Kaji and Lizzie
the vet said to let the dead tissue fall off on its own so there is no dressing on her foot other than the sandwich bags dad ties on her feet before she goes outside so the ice and snow doesn't hurt her feet.

the visiting nurse came and Cori was on her best behavior and talked very softly. the bad budgies just stared at her but I just wouldn't shut up. the nurse finally said what kind of bird is that and dad said a rare bali blue mynah.

Mom is very upset,she just got back from the hospital,Nana fell today in her driveway while skin sis was trying to shovel it for her and she broke her hip,she's going to have surgery tomorrow morning and Mom has no idea when she'll be back on BC for us.Mom hated to leave her in the hospital,they didn't have a room for her so Mom and the skin sibs had to leave her in the emergency room.She's in bad pain and the morphine made her sick.I'm so sorry this is so short,Mom can't think,she can't even get in touch with Nana at the hospital and has to try calling again in 15 minutes,they were at the hospital since late this afternoon,couldn't move her off the floor,skin bro helped to carry her out to his car,her left leg was in severe pain.I'm so sorry,skin bro is going to pick Mom up in the morning after he gets home from work to go back up for the surgery and be with her.
Please forgive me for being so short,its so late and Mom is so upset and beside herself and so worried about Nana.
Please pray that my Nana makes it through the surgery,Mom is so upset she's going to try and write down questions she needs to ask before the surgery tomorrow! Please forgive my shortness,Mom's head is ready to explode and she can't stop crying!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Loving you always and forever,Dixie!

  Hi Kaji
Mom ordered those balls for me, since it was free shipping. She discovered that her eBay account was tied to her old email, so she opened a new one. It was actually pretty easy, and otherwise it would have insisted on putting it on Dad's eBay account which is still pretty active from his rock purchases.

Well, we are getting cooler temps than we had a few weeks ago, and although today is supposed to get to 71 it is not a sunny day so I doubt I will get outside at all. Then tomorrow they are saying 73, so maybe....Then Sunday we also are supposed to get some rain, although not as much need. Darn it!

Mom doesn't go to the gym today (usual Wednesday) until 4-6PM, so I have her for most of the day. She just started a new library book, and it is 645 pages. And since she does most of her reading in my room, it sounds like a good book to me!

This morning while Mom was reading I was playing on the floor with my ball with the bell inside. I like to attack it, wings up, and basically beat the daylights out of it, and Mom loves to watch. So as soon as I would get bored, Mom would give it a nudge to get me going again. We kept it up for about 10 minutes, which is a long time for me to play with one toy. I think Mom had more fun than I did!

  Hi Kaji
Thanks for the Murphy's Oil Soap suggestion. We also heard about dishwashing liquid and vinegar, so mom has some alternatives. I think Poop off is okay if there's just one bird, but with 5 cages to clean, it does get pricey.
We got our Bird Talk with points, and it came the other day. Mom is so far just looking at it, but I think she'll love the conure article, hahaha.
At the wildlife center there was some bad news today. The center lost Cy, one of the education owls. The little grey phase screech owl was brought to us a few years ago after having fallen (or been pushed) from his nest. He had some neurological problems and was missing an eye, so he couldn't be released. He became one of our dear education animals. Lately though, he's been having more seizures and they've been getting worse, so the decision was made to put him down to save him further suffering. It's always sad when they decide to euthanize an animal there, but one with a name whom everyone has worked with is almost unbearably sad. Mom cried this morning when she read the email, and is still kind of dripping. Cy is okay now, we know, and is whole and healthy once again. Fly free, little Cyclops, we'll all miss you.
I hope you are having a wonderful day, full of cuddles and scritches (and warmth). Hugs, Willie

  Hi Kaji
Truly a happy humpday ! RT hit my 30k this morning ! Although it is exciting, I must say the friendships forged here are so much more important to my little green heart !

We're supposed to hit freezing today ! I don't think it's going to melt anything though . . . at least there's nothing more than flurries in the forecast for the next few days :)

I've been very cranky the last few days - between hormones and pin feathers, I've been squawking a lot ! Mom tried to get me to take a bath last night, but I don't want anything she does ! ha !

Have a great day and if you get a chance to play Name that Tune (231616) go give it a wing ! But dress warmly, it's chilly over there ! LOL ! love Cookie

Come visit me, Cookie - on the lookout, BC Library Now Open & Fly with the angels my Sally.

  Flitzer Wednesday Thoughts . . .
Still in "Recovery-Mode" from Hollywood's Big Night.

--
Some of you BirdChannel friends have expressed that they don't watch The Oscars.
Dad doesn't really like the Hollywood Glamor-thing and some of the industry politics,
but we do love movies.
--
Often we are disappointed with what films and actors win the awards. That is all a part of the game. We often look back on past years with a knowing smirk, realizing that the movies we liked best that year are the ones that are still being watched and appreciated.
--
All that being said, we do like tuning in that one night a year, when Hollywood goes all-out and celebrates the talent, work and yes, the tackiness of The Hollywood Movie Machine.

  Hi Kaji
Thanks for liking my feathers. We birds have some beautiful colors!
This is the second nasty winter. And, they say that no spring for us (like last year) and summer will be another cold one :(
Well, tonight is bad for us .....
I come to you by generator tonight. A winter storm hit our area and trees and power lines are down. Even the Mackinac Bridge is closed due to no visibility. Yes, we are still very cold. I have extra blankets on the condo tonight. Time to sit back and enjoy cups of hot chocolate.
Hugs

  Hi Kaji and Lizzie
Paddy Cake is the bad budgie. Piddy follows him but doesn't go near any of us and perches in a safe place to watch all the action. every time after Paddy does his dive bombing he flys to Piddy and kisses her.

the visiting nurse is coming tomorrow so mom was doing some cleaning today. don't forget mom was laid up with a bad back for about 4 weeks so there went much cleaning done in that time period. moms back is about 90 percent better but if she overdoes it or moves in the wrong way it hurts.

dad took the doggie to the vet today to check the progress of her healing. while at the vets office the pad on the bottom of doggies toe fell off. there is a big hole there now. all the tissue inside the hole is very healthy and should regrow and fill the hole up. the vet said there was still a little necrotic tissue on the sides which will also fall off but for dad not to worry

love Boo Boo

  HI KAJI AND LIZZIE
THEY SAID IT GOT UP TO 30 DEGREES HERE TODAY BUT I DON'T THINK SO. IT WAS WINDY AND WE DIDN'T HAVE THE SUN TODAY. IT SEEMED MUCH COLDER TODAY THAN YESTERDAY. NOW TOMORROW WILL BE DOWN TO LIKE 10 DEGREES AND WINDY. NOT LIKING THIS COLD WEATHER AT ALL.

THEY ALSO SAY WE WILL HAVE A COLDER SPRING LIKE LAST YEAR DUE TO THE ICE IN THE GREAT LAKES.

I AM GLAD THAT YOUR MOM GOT SOME DECENT SLEEP LAST NIGHT. IF YOU AREN'T WELL RESTED BAD DAYS CAN BE WORSE. HOPE SHE SLEEPS GOOD TONIGHT.

ITS GOOD THAT THE TOOTH ISN'T THROBBING LIKE IT WAS BUT IF IT DOESN'T FEEL RIGHT IT CAN STILL BE INFECTED. IS YOUR MOM STILL ON ANTIBIOTICS? MOM HAD TO BE ON ANTIBIOTICS FOR A MONTH BEOFRE HER TOOTH GOT WORKED ON CAUSE OF TEH INFECTION. NOW HER OTHER TOOTH IS FEELING WEIRD CAUSE A PIECE CHIPPED OFF FROM INBETWEEN THE TWO TEETH. SO IT DOESN'T HURT BUT FEELS WEIRD.

LETS HOPE THE SNOW MISSES YOU AND YOUR MOM HAS A SAFE BUT QUICK DRIVE HOME.

SENDING YOU SWEET BEAKIE KISSES AND WARM WING HUGS

UPDATE on skin bro:He came home from the interview at Sears and he's in the top 5 for candidates for the job,he has to go back next week for a pee test etc and they are only hiring two people to fill the positions.He's hoping to get it.Skin bro is so thankful to you for sending the good thoughts for him to get the job at Sears.We all can't thank you enough it sure means everything to us here!
My dad has to be in work for 3:00am so he came home and Mom had dinner ready sketties,which we got some of,yummmmm!then he showered,shaved and went to bed so Mom and I never got to see him yet again,oh well,at least we got last night to snuggle with him!
Oh that wind is just the pits when it rears its ugly cold blasts!Mom wouldn't even go out to the mailbox and had dad go get the mail when he came home tonight.And when will this snow stop coming?We don't even have a chance to get rid of the mountains of white we have here from the first three storms!Oh and that dampness from the lake must be something else awful too!We need some bright sunshine,that packs some heat with it too to warm up our frozen tundra of a world now and to take away this white so we can see the ground again!Mom and I sure can understand and feel so bad for you there in the frigid cold too,what we need is summer sunshine and warm days now,we are so done with winter,cold,shoveling,ice and blizzards and snow!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses to you and that amazing Mom of yours!You just don't know how much those prayers and good thoughts mean to us and we send you lots of good thoughts and prayers for some bright warm sunshine and better days ahead!We love you more than you can ever know!You make our world so bright and warm and the love we feel from everything you send us makes us smile!You are our world!Loving you always and forever,my awesome buddy,Love,Dixie
