I wish I could distribute this heat to my BC family who are living in cold states and they can distribute their cold weather to us birds who are frying...

I thought crickets only come out during the summer.Guess what???
They are invading us!!!!

They seem to be as confused as we are with this hot weather...

As for sick and injured mommy's and daddy's we wish you wellness and a quick recovery.

Have an awesome day

Happy Monday!!! We are looking at weather that's too warm once again...
Mommy couldn't stand it yesterday and in the next few days it will be warmer...
This is supposed to be winter and we are wondering what happened to it???

This is quite ironic on how mommy starts to get better because the heat went away and now it's back.All 88 degrees of it!!!

This is so not right for us California birds!!!!

Other than that we had an awesome BBQ with green chili and Steak along with blue cheeseburgers and BBQ beans with fry bread.Yummy!

Have an awesome day and don't forget to vote on the milonga page!

My mommy's nose appointment went well...The doctor made her sit back in that weird chair they have for noses and he gave her a shot of cortisone in each side of her nose.She said it did't hurt because the doctor numbed the pain.
Then he gave her a prescription of cortisone pills and Flonase spray.
So far it's working and my mommies nose has cleared up.
My mommy said the doctor was awesome and knew exactly what to do in the case of her nose heehee!!!

Today's a slow day with not much to do.The weather is still nice and cool but will be in the hot 80's by this weekend.YUCK!!!! I'm so not looking forward to that!!!

Please excuse any misspelling cause the key board on my mommies puter is taking a poop on her.

Have an awesome day

Happy Humpday...
Today's my mommy's big day!!!! She goes to her ear,nose and throat doctor to see what he can do to get her off of her Afrin nose spray addiction!!!
My mommy has been addicted to Afrin nose spray since she was 8 years old.She blames it on my G-ma but I know she could have kicked it years ago so who's fault is it???Not only that. My skin auntie is addicted to it too.
When they don't have it they can't breathe in or out of their nose.
I know it sounds funny but it's true heehee.When my mommy and auntie went to the nose doctor he looked in my mommies nose and said this is amazing!!!
Hmmmm I wonder what he means by that?
The weather here is still nice and cool and by the end of this week we will be getting 80 degrees and up on our temps.
Laka is so blessed that her weather is always nice and never too hot even at 80 degrees...

Have an awesome day and I'll keep you updated on my mommies nose heehee!!!

Good Morning everyone!!!
Today will be the last day of my BOTM blogs...There's only so much a tiel can blog in a limited time...I'll be back tomorrow to say my thank you's...Keep on voting for me...

In my gallery you will see a beautiful picture of White Sands New Mexico.This is a top secret military base...

You will also see a top secret deep underground military base there are also tunnels and the outside pictures are entrances.

I'm going to give you an important fact....
Missing Milk Carton people are taken somewhere into these deep underground military bases for genetic experimentation,micro chipping,psychotronic mind control,cybernetic implantations for
brain washed soldiers...
All soldiers are in these bases are micro chipped and under total psychotronic mind control.

These same procedures are used on the dead to create human weapons out of them.And they are also used on Aliens...

Now back to my skin brother and his friends...
As the boys crawled through the tunnel not one of them were scared.They were curious boys.
They then noticed the tunnel started getting bigger so the could stand up.They kept going.When they got to the end they were shocked seeing this huge underground military base.
The boys seen a no trespassing sign so the hid in different rooms and close to the walls...They described this place as a huge tunnel.As they walked by one room they stood behind the window and listened.

They heard these guys asking is this soldier dead??? The other guy said yes.Then the first guy said micro chip him.He will be a mutant.Upon hearing this the boys high tailed it out of there without being seen.They said They ran so fast and stayed quiet that they saw some aliens!!!!
When they came back home that night they all were all in shock!!!

They all had the same story detail by detail and it still is consistent.At first everyone was laughing at them saying yeah right. Years later these top secret bases came into light by a free lance photographer and eye witnesses and reporters.To this day if you get caught in one of these deep underground top secret bases they will keep you and experiment on you...

Did you know somewhere in the USA there is a top secret military base under a WalMart???

Be careful where you trend!!!

Happy TGIF!
If you go to my gallery you will see a picture of a mutant...
He looks mean dosen't he??? This is what will be one of the future weapons of mass destruction in a big war. These mutants are heartless and with out souls.They are the dead brought back to life in the under ground top secret military bases through out the USA. The scarey thing is that they can be under your homes and your property. Or somewhere to close for comfort near you!

Now it's time to get even more scared!!!

As my skin brother and his group of friends played around in the dessert they found an old tunnel under a bunch of rocks.Boy's being boy's they got curious like Tweety,Cookie,Hulk Peppi and most of our BC family...
They removed the rocks and decided to climb in the tunnel.It was so short in height that they had to crawl belly down.It kept going and going...They couldn't turn around because they would have got stuck.
The boys kept crawling for about 3 hours. They then crawled down so far that they found a big opening in the ground and as it got bigger they could stand up...
What they seen changed their life's forever and made firmly believe!!!

Tomorrow I will be back with part three...Hold on to your tail feathers!!!!

  Hey Norman
Good morning in BC land!!!
I'm finding myself rushing through my blogs cause I had no secretary this last weekend...

Today I'm taking you somewhere you may have never known about..
Underground military bases...Did you know there may be one under you???

Underground military bases are top secret and all over the USA.
They are built for top secret experiments such as germ warfare,housing aliens and the worse...Creating Mutants for the war...

Germ warfare means turning the dead into human weapons to use against the enemy and to wipe out a whole nation.Mutants are experiments that are brought back from the dead to use as human weapons....
They all are heartless and without souls.These humans volunteer for this.
I think its cruel...

If you see a shack or old house in the middle of nowhere and no one living in it be aware.The military uses them as in and out routes to go deep into the underground. WATCH WHERE YOU TREAD!!!

Tomorrow I'm going to tell you about my big skin bro and his friends and what they ran across while playing in the dessert...

Before I forget...Lots of humans got interviewed about 20 years ago. Did you know 87 percent of them has seen and heard a ghost or had an encounter with an alien at least once in thier lifetime??? Think about it that's a lot of humans and probably more now.

Thank you for your votes

Happy Humpday!
I'm going to try to finish my UFO series so I can take you somewhere else before my BOTM run is over...

Here it is.My mommy was calling Sean Morten and my uncle told her first she needs to sit down and listen to him.My uncle then told her that he wants badly to be adopted into a Native American family.
He said don't do it!!! Sean Morten is not human...
My mommy listened intently as my uncle talked to her. She was shocked with what he told her.

After the talk with my uncle my mommy called Sean Morten.She say's he sounded weird...

She asked him what is it he wanted from her and my family.He told her he wanted them to adopt him and teach him their Native American ways.
She did as my uncle told her and said no to him.

Sean Morten than told her all the military men from the government who were following her were following her because the Aliens were following her and the government was following them...
My mommy was mad!!! She then told Sean she would never adopt someone like him in her family.He knew and he let these things happen and he was not human!!!
That was the last time she ever spoke to him or seen him.

So my BC family let this be a lesson to you.Do not be so excepting when it comes to bringing someone in your home.You never know might walk in your front door and what their intentions are...

My mommy was informed by my uncle that to this day she is still being watched and followed...It's not a head trip either.My uncle is a heavy duty medicine man who has never been wrong.

Tomorrow I'm taking you somewhere far beyond your imagination.All accounts are true!

Good morning...
I'm back after a long weekend and a long Monday.My mommy's feeling better today YIPEEEEEEE!!!!

My story continues...
When Sean Morten came along a number of real weird happenings started.My big skin bro and my neighbors actually has seen two huge
Ufo's in the sky at the end of our block.
All the dogs and cats and the birds in our neighbor hood had thier heads up looking into the sky ...
My mommy remembers all of the animals barking chirping etc...
My skin bro came running in the house with his friends and the neighbors shouting look Ufo's!!!! Every one in the house started laughing and said yeah right!!! My skin brother and his friends and the neighbors went back outside.
10 minutes later my skin bro came back in the house and calmly said mom come here I got to show you something.
My mommy went outside and saw two huge UFO'S in the sky with everyone who lived near us looking up in the sky in total shock...

The next morning was a bright sunny day and my mommy went outside to our chickens.
Then she noticed something real strange.Two clouds in the sky with flashing lights behind them.All the animals were still not at ease and our rooster kept crowing at the sky...

The UFO'S stayed there for the whole day before they went away.
Nobody on our block knew that the military was on the end of each block to keep on lookers and outsiders away.
The whole neighborhood was barricaded in!!!! My mommy then called Sean Morten.
You will be shocked over the confrontation she had with him!!!

Be ready for the next sequence of my true story.CU tomorrow..

Happy TGIF!!!
Here's part three of Roswell New Mexico and area 51...I hope your enjoying this series cause it's going to run into next week.
There's so much with so little time!!!

Part three...Aliens and UFO's!!!
I know alot of you or your families and flocks have had close encounters with UFO'S and aliens...
Such as BOOBOO and Cori's big bro and Kiddo's mommy Pam's big bro and of course Tweety and Cookie who still go to area 51 to play with their alien friend Blue Shoots Straight...

One night at our home we heard my big brother scream...My mommy and daddy ran into his bedroom and he told then there was a spirit that was dancing around and it kept changing forms...
All three of them heard it leave.
My big bro started going to bed every night with his war spear.He was scared!!!

Anyway every night the sounds would get louder and stronger and they sounded like an x-ray machine.
My mommy finally had Sean Morten sleep over in the living room.
When he was there he showed recordings everyday and on the recordings were UFO'S chasing people from the sky in Roswell...
There was also recordings from area 51 with the military guys waving down UFO's and greeting them...

My mommy asked Sean Morten if they are friendly.His reply was some are and some are not...This scared my mommy cause the skin sibs were young and defenseless at the time...

Again my uncle thats a well respected medicine man said there's something not human in this home and it's with us somewhere in the house !!!

Happy Thursday!!!
Today I'm taking you to part two of area 51...Jump on your sleds and lets ride through there...

When Sean Morten started visiting my mommy and my family lots of weird stuff started happening.

The skin sibs started telling my mommy they saw spirits dancing around the house at night.
And the neighbors told my mommy they saw guys dressed in camos creeping around our house.
My mommy was actually followed by some of these guys when she went to town.
There was strange noises like X-ray machines coming from no where.
Each time my mommy went out these guys got closer and closer to her.It got to the point where they would walk right behind her...
My mommy got scared!!!She wouldn't leave the house!!!

Sean Morten kept coming over on a regular basis showing my family recordings of area 51...
There was even a recording of Seans wife getting chased by UFO's as she hung her laundry on the line in Roswell New Mexico.

My Uncle from my daddy's side of the family then told my mommy there is something that is not human in our home...

PART THREE TOMORROW...

Good morning...
Today I'm starting my series on how my skin family came to a close encounter with the aliens.
My introduction
When my mommy and the skins moved to my daddy's rez in Acoma the elders would always talk to her.They told her about how man kind and creature kind are very curious about most tribes of Native Americans because we are thought to possess great powers...

My mommy said she saw a human figure running through the rez with a rainbow one night.The medicine man asked her did it look at her???
She said yes.The medicine man than told her it was watching her.
He also said because my mommy is from a sky tribe and so is the Acoma the aliens are very curious...He also told my mommy that they would follow her and the skins in a quite and sneaky way.

My mommy went to a Powwow four days later.
This man named Sean Morten confronted her and introduced himself.
He wanted to be adopted by a Native American family.
Sean Morten owned and created the TV show sightings that was really popular 20 years ago.It came on every Tuesday night on channel 4 I think...Do you remember???
Anyway every weekend he would come to visit the family and bring a Marie Calenders pie...He would also bring recordings of the UFO's at area 51.It is top secret !!!

Tomorrow I will be bringing you part two of my blog.You will be totally blown away to hear what my mommy and the skins in my family learned.

Good morning I'm glad to be back...
My Mommy's surgery went well and her hernias were removed successfully with no complications.I told her to bring them home in a jar heehee!!!
My mommy had outpatient surgery and was off BC for awhile due to the pain med's not letting her focus...
She's doing fine now and her stitches are annoying but healing...

Today I'm going to start off with a short blog and tomorrow and the days after my blogs will be longer.

Everyone lets jump on our Harley Hogs !!!

Here we are in Roswell New Mexico...Area 51...
If you haven't heard of it this is where there is lots of UFO sightings along with other weird and scarey things...

For those of you who don't believe in these things think about it...
How can a whole town and state be wrong and how can the military be wrong ???

As I ask once again who are we to make these judgements???
Only god knows!!!

Tomorrow we will be exploring Roswell New Mexico and area 51...
Each story told is a true account of what happens here...

Trust me Cookie,Tweety and BB knows...You wouldn't believe how many times BB has caught Tweety and Cookie here visiting their alien friends...Heeehee!!!!

Here's part 3 of the Penitente's...

My mommy found out that those dolls created in the image of each Penitente would be thrown in a pit in back of the ranch if they died or left the religion.

The Angel of death was also revealed to them. The guy Richard told them that whoever it pointed at would die.In the first picture in my gallery is a picture of what they call the real angel of death who wakes up to take his victims soul away on a chariot of fire...

Anyway my mommy introduced herself to the guide and told him she is the daughter of hundreds of generations of medicine men and women from the Northern Cheyenne tribe.She knew it would scare him and it did.
He also also saw the medicine pouch hanging around her neck that is hundreds of years old.
He looked nervous and gave them his farewells very quickly and walked them off the ranch.
My mommy,Katherine and the school kids made it out of there without incident!!!

My mommy always say's you may win the battles in life but are you prepared for winning the big war in your life ???
Always dig deep into your roots and tap into your inner strength...
You will receive honor and victory...

Just a quick hello today sweetie! Mom spent the entire day cleaning & doing laundry. She barely sat down all day & is exhausted! She's hoping that the insomnia doesn't win tonight, it's only 8pm & can barely keep her eyes open. That's good news to me...hopefully she won't be up until 4am roaming around the house disturbing me!

Mom isn't sure if she'll be awake at 11pm to see the powerball numbers. I guess she'll have to wait until the morning to see if she's a bizillionaire!

Happy Humpday!!!

First off I want you to know that everything I'm telling you is real..Things go on all over the world in a wordly and spiritual matter everyday.
Some don't see or know it and some do see it and know it.Some are given and born with the gift from god to be able to see and know about the tangible and the intangible...
They are also protectors from god. A lot of hoomans say this is crazy...
But who are they to judge crazy if they have never seen it...
To me whats crazy is animal,child and elder abuse.And as strong as our government is why do these things keep happening ???That's crazy with the whole earth getting ruined...So tell me!!!
My mommy and my skin sibs have seen and heard and been through a lot of things cause they are from a very strong medicine family.
My mommy has often prayed to god and asked him to take the gift away from her but god has his reasons not too...

Here's part two of the Penitentes....

The guy Richard who was the tour guide looked like a normal man.
These people don't cover their faces until they do their rituals...

Anyway when my mommy,Katherine and the kids who were in the 3rd grade went into the penitente church this guy Richard told them about their rituals.
He also told them of the Jesus statue behind the curtain.He told them that they couldn't look at this statue.
My mommy could see some of it from the angle she was sitting.She saw a distorted statue of our lord Jesus.
My mommy was horrified but stayed strong for the kids and Katherine. Katherine too saw the statue...

This guy Richard started to tell everyone that when he joined the Penitente's they made a doll of him...He showed everyone a creepy looking doll that looked just like him.He also told everyone that every time someone joins them they will get a doll of them made...

As he was talking my mommy had it made up in her mind of leaving politely.She didn't know how the reaction would be if they just walked out.

Be ready for for part three tomorrow...

As the medicine clans in my tribe say where there is good there is evil and where there is evil there is good.These two forces are always opposing one another...
We are always for the good!!!

Here's something your mommy might have heard of !!!

Here we are !!! We made it all the way here on our Harleys... We are in Northern New Mexico...

This is another true account...We are entering the Penitente's ranch...
But before we enter let me tell you about what happened to my mommy and older skin brother when they went.
This might change your mind of ever wanting to go to one of these...
This is scarey and weird!!!

My mommy had a good friend who happened to be my big skin brothers school teacher...Any way my mommy's friend the school teacher named Katherine told my mommy she met this guy at her church and he invited her to bring the class to his ranch for a field trip.
She said yes not knowing what a penitente ranch is.My mommy thought it wise to go along with her and the kids...

Anyway when they arrived in the school bus with the class there was that guy named Richard standing in front.
He brought everyone in the ranch.
He explained that the penitentes were a branch off the catholic religion.And go back since the beginning of time.
Each penitente ranch are in their own society...

He also showed the class the houses they lived in and how the floors are made of dirt and get cleaned with BLOOD!!!

He told the class of the torture chambers they had there and they would torture each other for days and days.
Every year they would also tie a big cross on themselves and walk down the same path getting tortured with whips cutting through their skin and getting beatings from painful cactus...

If anyone would walk in during these torture sessions they would surely die of something so fearful that the human mind can't even imagine...

Tomorrow I will tell you what my mommy and Katherine and the kids in the class were allowed to see and what they did see and learn.
This is real and beyond ones imagination.It can change your mind about things forever.Stay Strong!!! Part 2 tomorrow...

How are you sweetie? Yes, it's great to be back with all of my friends, I've missed everybirdie so much! We didn't plan on disappearing. Mom had a bad MS flare up that lasted several months, she's doing a lot better now! Mom promised to work on getting me to 5k...I should have reached 10k by now!

Good news! Mom saw on the local news  last night that our star wide receiver, Antonio Brown, WILL be playing in Sunday's game! He suffered a concussion and had to undergo the concussion protocol but he will be able to play! Big Ben had a muscle sprain to his right shoulder, but he's fine! He's a big, tough dude! I'm not sure how much has been on the national news about that player's dirty, vicious hits to our players, but it's the leading story on every local newscast! We will finish this story tomorrow!

  Hey Norman
Happy Monday!!! I'm so sorry I wasn't on BC for a few days...It's because of my daddy making my mommy go out of town with him so he could take care of some stuff.My mommy was so bored and so was I.
Lock down for me and the flock...

Here's part three of haunted Barstow.I hope you like it...

When my mommy's G-PA and uncles arrived they could already hear the spirits talking to them...
That night everyone was sitting in the living room.My G-PA turned off the lights and told everyone to look at the window.
As they did they could see human figures with flames on their heads looking in at them.
My mommy asked why there was so many of them ??? My G-PA told my mommy that it is day of the dead. My G-PA also told my mommy they want their sacred burial ground back and they wanted her to leave before things got worse.
My G-PA and uncles went outside to face these spirits.They took my mommy and the skin sibs outside with them.
There in the middle of the street stood three human translucent figures...

As my G-PA stepped forward to confront them they backed up...
My G-PA told my mommy that they don't to be confronted so she should go.

The next day my mommy and the skin sib's moved to another house.

Mommy later found out that their house was built on top of the hill in a circular Native American burial ground If the circle is not broken that means things will be unending.Which means those poor spirits are experiencing an unending death and will never be at rest... And there was also a lot of haunted places in Barstow.

On national T.V Barstow is considered one of the most haunted places in the U.S...

I will get back to haunted Barstow before my BOTM run is over.
Right now I'm jumping on my Harley and our next stop will be in New Mexico...

Helmets on...Let's ride !!!

Thank you for your votes

  Hi Norman & flock
How are you sweetie? It's great to be back on BC, I've missed all my friends! I did support Kaji's BOTM campaign & give congrats to BOTD winners, but mom has been promising me for weeks that we would again blog ALL my friends! I have REALLY missed you all!

Mom's STEELERS won the playoff game last night but mom is still fuming over the game! These two teams are arch rivals & we expected a physical game, but one player on the opposing team took it way to far! He made a dirty, illegal hit on our star receiver and almost took his head off! Fans kept throwing debris onto the field at our players! Our QB had to be escorted off the field by the dozen security guards! Mom prays that Antonio Brown is OK & is able to play next week in the AFC Championship game!
Have a great day sweetie!

  Hey Norman
Good Morning!!! It's so cool ,crisp and clean here in SO-CAL...
We are waiting for our next series of rain storms that should arrive here tomorrow which is Saturday...
That means if you don't here from me we are having a power outage so please be patient and bare with me...

Here's part two of haunted Barstow.I hope your enjoying it !!!

When my mommy went to the library she got a card for each skin sib.

There was a lady there that greeted her and welcomed her to Barstow.My mommy and her started talking and the lady took my mom to look at a picture of Barstow when it was first built.

The picture was taken from the sky and when my mommy looked at it there was lights that spelled HELL...
My mommy asked the lady why this was and she simply replied that was the way it came out.There was only a few blocks of housing in the beginning.
My mommy was very concerned.When she got back to the house she contacted her family which are heavy duty medicine men...
Out of all days they happened to arrive on day of the dead.
Something Domingo and his flock know about !!!

Before they arrived more and more things started happening and actually intensified...
Everynight my mommy would hear 2 men arguing in her garage.Nothing and nobody would be in there.
Kevin would always tell my mommy there's mad people in the wall and he's scared of them...

Finally on day of the dead my skin uncles and G-PA arrived...

Be ready for part 3 and hang in there with me...
Remember all stories are true and accountable!!!

  Heya, Norman!
This is it--the last day of 2015! Wishing you good health, good cheer, more love than you could ever imagine, and a safe and Happy New Year! Thank you for your support in voting for me! And a special thank you to Chipper and her Mom for making my festive profile picture!! And now, the final chapter to our story:


The sneeze blasted from the Dragon like a rocket, throwing it back fifty paces, causing a whirlwind of dust and dirt.

"AHHHHH CHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!"

The second blast split open the dry earth, sending explosions of soil and tree roots high into the sky like missiles, and something else too ...

The people heard the sound but couldn't recognize it at first for it had been such a long time since their ears had heard such tinkling melody. As their eyes widened in wonder, their smiles turned into grins and then yahoos and hoorahs.

Water, cold, clear spring water, oozed, then trickled, then roared out of the hole, down the hillside and along the valley floor.

The torrent knocked over a farmer's haystack, but he didn't care.

The river carried away the schoolteacher's bike shed but she cared not a jot. It even demolished the Ladies Bowling Club changing rooms but they howled with laughter and slapped their thighs. When the flood sent pools of water out towards the golf course, filling up sixteen of the nineteen holes, the men just hooted and whistled and threw their caps up in the air.

What used to be a dirty, brown dust bowl, now gleamed and glistened in the sunlight, sending playful waves and ripples across the lake and inviting all to share.

"HMMMMM," sighed the Dragon sleepily, and showing his perfect movie star teeth. "Seeing as I'm awake ..."

And he lumbered forward with surprising grace and style and disappeared into the cool dark water with a small wave of a claw and flick of his tail.

They never saw him again.

After the families had restored and rebuilt the village, and set up sailing clubs for the children, and scuba diving for the grandparents, they erected a bandstand and monument in the spot where the Dragon used to lay. Every year to mark the occasion, they would bring garlands of flowers and herbs and arrange them in a big circle. The children would have the day off school, for it was known as 'Water Dragon Day' and wearing the dragon masks that they had been working on all week, would skip and clap and sing.

The Dragon helped Us
As We said He would Do
Hooray for The Dragon
Achoo, Achoo, ACHOOOO!

And that is the end of the story.

Hope you loved it as much as Lizzie and I did! Wing hugs coming your way!

Lotsa love always from your buddy,

  Heya, Norman!
Getting there, I hope! Thanks so much for getting me to 15K--and maybe even king at the Castle? Double celebrating, and the new year, too! Wow! How cool is that? Had fun chatting with Miss Chyna and her Mom yesterday! Some snow showers earlier and a few more on the way, but nothing of measure (amen!)

Now back to the story!!

Quickly and quietly, they moved invisibly around town, picking and plucking at the fading flowers. With outstretched arms and bouquets up to their chins, they rustled over to where the giant rock lay, as still as ever.

The boys and girls placed bunches of flowers around the Dragon in a big circle. They scattered petals around its head and over its nose, then danced around and around it, skipping and chanting the rhyme that they all knew so well.

In Times of Trouble
The Dragon Will Wake
And Save the Village
By making a Lake.

The searing heat made them dizzy and fuzzy and finally they all fell in a sprawling heap at the bottom of the mound. They looked up at the rock.

Nothing happened.

A dry wind lazily picked up some flower heads and swirled them around. The air was thick with pollen and perfume. A stony grey nostril twitched.

"I saw something," cried the youngest boy.

They stared intently.

An ear swiveled like a periscope.

The ground began to rumble.

"Look out! Run!Run!"

The children scampered in all directions, shrieking and squealing, arms pumping with excitement.

The rumbling grew and grew.

The Dragon raised its sleepy head. It got onto its front feet and sat like a dog. It stood up and stretched, arching its long scaly back like a sleek tabby cat. It blinked and looked around with big kind, long lashed eyes.

And then its nostrils twitched and quivered again.

The older folk were alerted by the screams and shrieks. The ladies held up their long skirts to run and the men rolled their sleeves up and soon the whole town stood together in a tight huddle at the foot of the hill, staring up at the large beast with mouths held open.

"AHHHHH AAHHHHHHHHH!!"

The noise erupted from the Dragon.

"AHHHHH AAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!"

The families gripped each other tighter and shut their eyes.

"AHHHHH CHOOOOOOOOO!!"

Oh dear! A sneezing Dragon! Gosh, multiple sneezes, too--just like Mom (though Mom's are louder)! Come back tomorrow for the final chapter!

  Heya, Norman!
Still have a couple days before I am packing--never know about those things! Thanks for stopping by with your vote! You helped me get to 15K! What fun! Party time at the Dragon Cave! And as for our weather, we got about 6 inches of snow total, and maybe a little crust of ice on it. Streets are not too bad--due to salting and plowing, so Mom ran out to get me my red grapes. At $3.99 lb. you know she loves me a whole lot!

Now for the story:

Often on a cool night, when the stars were twinkling brightly in a velvet sky and the children peacefully asleep, the grown ups would settle for the evening with a mug of steaming cocoa in a soft cushioned armchair. Then the stories about How The Dragon Got There began. Nobody knew for sure, there were many different versions depending on which family told the tale, but one thing that everybody agreed on, was this:

In Times of Trouble
The Dragon will Wake
And Free the Village
By making a Lake

This little poem was etched into everybody's minds and sometimes appeared on tea towels and grandma's embroidery.

The days went by slowly, quietly and most importantly, without any rain. There had been no rain in the valley for as long as the children could remember. The wells were starting to bring up muddy brown water and clothes had to be washed in yesterday's dishwater. The lawns had faded to a crisp biscuit colour and the flowers drooped their beautiful heads. Even the trees seemed to hang their branches like weary arms. The valley turned browner and drier and thirstier, every hot, baking day.

The townsfolk grew worried and would murmur to each other when passing with much shaking of heads and tut tuts. They would look upwards searching for rain clouds in the blue, clear sky, but none ever came.

"The tale of the Dragon cannot be true," said old Mrs Greywhistle, the shopkeeper.

"It hasn't moved an inch, I swear," replied her customer, tapping an angry foot.

It was now too hot for the children to play out in the direct sun and they would gather under the shade of the trees, digging holes in the dust and snapping brittle twigs.

"The Dragon will help us soon," said one child.

"He must do Something," agreed another.

"I'm sure he will."

They all nodded in agreement.

A week went by with no change, the people struggling along as best they could. Some were getting cross at the Dragon and would cast angry, sideways looks at it when passing. The villagers were becoming skinny eyed and sullen.

Meanwhile, the children had a plan.

What can the children possibly do? Come back tomorrow and find out!

  Heya, Norman!!
LOVE your new profile pic!! As this year winds down, there is yet one more story to share with you all. Of course, it is another Dragon story, and hope you enjoy it! AND--thanks for stopping by to vote for me at this very busy time of year!!

The Dragon Rock by Ellena Ashley


This story begins with Once Upon A Time, because the best stories do, of course.

So, Once Upon A Time, and imagine if you can, a steep sided valley cluttered with giant, spiky green pine trees and thick, green grass that reaches to the top of your socks so that when you run, you have to bring your knees up high, like running through water. Wildflowers spread their sweet heady perfume along the gentle breezes and bees hum musically to themselves as they cheerily collect flower pollen.

People are very happy here and they work hard, keeping their houses spick and span and their children's faces clean.

This particular summer had been very hot and dry, making the lean farm dogs sleepy and still. Farmers whistled lazily to themselves and would stand and stare into the distance, trying to remember what it was that they were supposed to be doing. By two o'clock in the afternoon, the town would be in a haze of slumber, with grandmas nodding off over their knitting and farmers snoozing in the haystacks. It was very, very hot.

No matter how hot the day, however, the children would always play in the gentle, rolling meadows. With wide brimmed hats and skin slippery with sun block, they chittered and chattered like sparrows, as they frolicked in their favourite spot.

Now, their favourite spot is very important to this story because in this particular spot is a large, long, scaly rock that looks amazingly similar to a sleeping dragon.

The children knew it was a dragon.

The grown ups knew it was a dragon.

The dogs and cats and birds knew it was a dragon.

But nobody was scared because it never, ever moved.

The boys and girls would clamber all over it, poking sticks at it and hanging wet gumboots on its ears but it didn't mind in the least. The men folk would sometimes chop firewood on its zigzagged tail because it was just the right height and the Ladies Weaving Group often spun sheep fleece on its spikes.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's installment! Is this a REAL dragon?

  Hi Norman & Flock
T'was the night before Christmas, when all through the tree,
the birdies and parrots were all filled with glee,
The clutches were snuggled in their down feathered nests,
while vision of flight, sent them all soaring west.

Fresh millet sprays had been hung with great care,
with hopes that "Old Scarlet" (Parrot St. Nick) soon would be there.
The Conures and Amazons had all settled down,
but those crazy cockatoos were still hopping around.

When high in the tree tops, a ruckus arose,
I thought I should check, just to see what goes.
Peeking through branches, leaves lit by the moon,
I thought I was dreaming it looked just like noon!

When what to my wondering eyes should there be,
but a flock of eight Grey's with Red Tails shining landing in the next tree.
Gliding behind, holding reins in his beak,
I spied the red bird, with a blush on his cheek.

He whistled and squawked, calling each one by name,
buoyed by a breeze, as closer they came.
Now Talon, now Josey, now Dayo and Ana Grey,
on Corky, on Misty, on Gilda and Gracie.

To the top of the palms, to the top of trees tall,
now fly away, fly away, fly away all!
I watched as they circled the green jungle maze,
and thought for a second I'd lost sight, I was in such a daze!

But, soon they appeared, drawing a basket behind,
which was filled with new toys of the bright, shiny kind.
Back to my branch I climbed mighty quick,
I'd heard of Old Scarlet, surely this was no trick!

He carefully perched by an old snoring grey,
while I fretted and wondered if he'd get scared away.
He wasn't even distracted when the parakeet sneezed.
He hung the new whirlygigs, sighed and looked pleased.

Standing proud and quite stately, he filled me with trust;
but I felt ashamed, his feathers were covered with cockatoo dust.
He paused, just a moment, fluffed and preened in a stoop,
turned around slowly, saying "At least it's not poop."

Then he laughed out loud--like a real human being.
I blinked my eyes twice, at what I was seeing.
He picked up a peanut and tossed it my way.
"Here's a small Christmas treat. Don't get spoiled, okay?"

He strutted back to the basket, put a strap round each wing,
chirped at his flock, who started to sing.
Their tones were so perfect, they were magically dear.
I was sure it was Memorex or a choir quite near.

The melody lingered, for a moment or two,
but I caught one last glimpse, before they flew.
His eyes were so merry, twinkling with impish delight.
His charming ways had brightened this long Christmas night.

As upward they soared, toward the golden round moon,
I heard every word, he joyfully crooned.
"Merry Christmas to all, peace, joy and cheer.
Be good little birdies. I'll see you next year!"

  Heya, Norman!
We love our picture too! Chipper's Mom made it for us, and we just love it!!

Thanks for continuing to support me in my BOTM run! Today dawned sunny and chilly, in the 30's. But the sun is out and for that we are super happy! We appreciate you taking the time to stop and vote for me during this crazy holiday time!

More about Lizzie (do you remember?):

Lizzie spent a great deal of time getting recipes from Turk, and sharing ideas and having fun remembering something that had happened at the Milongas. She was gaining more and more expertise as a chef under Turk's tutelage.

Lizzie would also pack fabulous picnic lunches for anyone who wanted to take one to the pond or the lake. Some of the most memorable times were when she and Kiddo and SweetPepper and Kaji would go swimming. Lizzie would take goodies to the ballpark for Da Pois'N'Dem baseball team of which Kaji was Co-Captain with Calico of the La Habra flock. When the Milonga was started, she and Kaji were natural choices for the caterers. She also lent her skills to Mikey and Kacey's wedding, creating a lovely wedding cake or three for them.

Evenings are special times at the Dragon Cave. Lizzie always has a welcome fire in the Great Room, and popcorn is always available for a good snack. In particular, white cheddar popcorn, as this was the favorite of Maxi, SweetPepper's frother. Oh, the card games they played, and how Maxi always won--much to Lizzie's dismay!!

Lizzie has brought all the Rainbow Bridge Birdies to Kevlar Stadium for the epic baseball games in years past. Sadly, the games have gone away, but if you go to Kevlar Stadium, you can hear the chatter of the Bridge Birds in the rafters. Word has it that they play games of their own there, though no one is really sure--but you can hear the sound of the bats hitting the balls and loud cheers if you listen close enough.

Have a safe and happy Thursday night!

  Heya, Norman!
Thank you for stopping, and I hope that some of the story will bring back memories of a time when so many of our friends were with us, and of some wild times and epic parties. I truly appreciate your vote! And I hope you enjoy getting to know the Lizzie that I know and love!

The story continues:


Over time, Lizzie began to transform from her bearded dragon shape into a lovely Dragon, as the Magic of the Castle is wont to do. She made her home in a large cave off to the side of the Castle, and called it (appropriately) the Dragon Cave. She and Kaji would often go to the pond just inside the Castle walls, to the left of the path leading up to the Castle. That pond saw so many picnics with their friends! Lizzie loved to jump off the rocks above it--but that meant every birdie had to watch out or they would get a good soaking when she landed in the pond.

As she transformed into her new self, she decided that she would make the Dragon Cave a wonderful place for all birdies to come whenever they wanted. In particular, she wanted to make sure that those who reigned as King or Queen of the Month could visit the Castle grounds at any time. She and Kaji worked very hard on the Dragon Cave, making it into a lovely bed and breakfast (and lunch and dinner, too!). The Cave originally featured 50 rooms, all with their own tempurpedic mattresses, perches galore, hot tubs and whirlpools. She has since expanded the size of the Dragon Cave to over 150 rooms, with Kaji's help, of course! If you happen to see him wearing some paint on his feathers, you know Lizzie is in remodeling mode!

Lizzie created a world-class chef's kitchen, with a full garden room filled with all kinds of herbs and and vegetables and fruit trees and plants that she could use for her main enjoyment--cooking! The dining area is open and spacious, and can accomodate any number of birdies--it is magical, of course! Any birdie is welcome in the garden, and always welcomed to help Lizzie prepare food.

Stay tuned for the next chapter!

  Heya, Norman!!
It is a dark and rainy day here in WI. It is 43 now, and we could be close to 60 on Wednesday. Wow. It is a couple days from Christmas...and we are still warm (well, for us!) Thanks so much for stopping by with your vote! And now, part two of the story:


Lizzie laughed and nearly rolled off the rock she was resting on.

"Oh, Kaji, I don't think so! You are too cute!"

Kaji blushed. "How did you get here?" he asked, stepping forward a little closer.

"I was brought here by King Merlin from the Rainbow Bridge. I used to live with a wonderful family who had a gorgeous Blue and Gold Macaw named Max. He was part of the BC, and he loved Alex, of the La Habra flock. One day I woke up and I was at the Bridge. I was not able to go back to my family, and I could see that they were very sad that I left them. I could watch over them, though, so it helped me feel less lonely. There were other bearded dragons at the Bridge, but I wanted to be back with my family in some way. I guess Merlin knew that, and brought me back to the Castle so I could see them again."

As the day progressed into several of them, Kaji brought Lizzie crickets to eat, and their friendship grew. He always wore the dragon costume, afraid that Lizzie might not like him if he was just a bird. But gosh, it was getting hotter out, and Kaji was wilting in that costume!

Finally, Kaji admitted to her that he was not the Bird Dragon as he appeared. "Um, Lizzie? I have something to tell you."

"Sure, Kaji, what's up?" Lizzie asked.

Kaji took a deep breath and stepped out of his costume. "I am just a Meyer's Parrot, and not a fierce dragon bird" he said, fluffing out his feathers.

Lizzie smiled at him. "Kaji, I knew you were not a dragon bird. Merlin told me. I don't care what you are--it is WHO you are inside that matters!"

The two became inseparable. Kaji was smitten, bringing her all kinds of wonderful foods, and a heated rock so she would stay warm. Lizzie was so happy with her friendship with Kaji and they became fast friends.


Stay tuned for the next chapter in Lizzie's story.

  Heya, Norman!
Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday--can you believe that yesterday we had a wind chill here of 9, and today our temps hit 49! Pneumonia weather, Mom calls it. Sure hope that doesn't happen--this is definitely not WI weather, for sure. And thank you so much for stopping by with your vote!

Lizzie's Story


"Lizzie? Lizzie--wake up!"

Lizzie the Bearded Dragon was resting comfortably on a heated rock at the Rainbow Bridge. She had gone there after a full life with her family, and was enjoying the life after life there.

"Lizzie! Get up!"

Lizzie opened her eyes and saw the most magnificent white bird with a crown on his head standing in front of her. She blinked, thinking she was dreaming. She blinked again, and he was still there.

"My name is Merlin, and I am King of the Month at the Castle, and I command you to come to the Castle to guard the grounds." The bird called Merlin was holding out his wing to Lizzie, and said "We need to go now, as I don't have much time here!"

Lizzie held out her front foot so that it touched the wing of King Merlin. She was whisked away to another world, the world of the BC Castle.

It was a fateful time at the Castle...a huge party was being held. All the participants dressed in magical costumes. The party was called Fantasy Island. Merlin was the King, and it was rumored that Merlin had brought a real dragon to the Castle. Kaji had chosen to wear a dragon costume to this party, and he was intrigued by the idea of meeting a real dragon. So he set out to see if the dragon guarding the Castle would be fierce even though he was in his dragon costume.

He found her at the pond just inside the Castle walls, to the left of the path leading up to the Castle.

"Hello, Dragon, how are you?" he asked.

"My name is Lizzie" said the dragon, turning to look at Kaji for the first time. She saw a handsome fellow who appeared to be a cross between a fierce dragon and a bird. She smiled at him. "Who are you?"

"M..my n..n..ame is Ka..aji" Kaji stammered. "Are you going to eat me?"


Stay tuned for more of Lizzie's story tomorrow!

Oh, yes, it is chilly out there! Wind chills were 9 degrees when Mom finally got her butt out of bed this morning (8:30 AM). Nothing like sleeping in! For shame on her!

Tomorrow I will start the story of Lizzie--Mom has a little bit to fine tune on it. We do hope you enjoy learning about our beloved Dragon. You know she has to be descended from Mortimer, as she is a superb chef!!

  Heya, Norman!
Got a picture for ya for the Holiday Milonga but don't have your email addy. If your Mom could send mine an email...we can send it over. Send to dzalac@wi.rr.com and will get it to ya!

It is beginning to feel a lot more like WI in December--and they are even talking some snow showers today. Sun is out, wind is really blowing pretty good out there, and the wind chill is 13 degrees. This is more like our normal weather, but we will be back in the 40's next week.

Thanks for stopping by with that vote, and now, the conclusion to our story!


Alfie smiled, then he went into the kitchen and brought Mortimer out to meet the king. The king was surprised, and nearly fainted with shock. Alfie and Mortimer were giggling, and said the king could eat that stew any time he wanted it. It was made of beef, but Mortimer had made it, as he had made all the king's meals since he got there. Alfie and Mortimer said together, "Only a dragon can make dragon stew!"

The king recovered from his near fainting spell. "Well, young Alfie and Mortimer, I had an entirely different thought in mind when I put out my request for dragon stew. But the last few weeks I have been served some simply wonderful meals, and I think I have discovered something--I bet my forbearers did not slay and eat the dragon! They had the dragons doing the cooking for them! Therefore, I appoint you, Alfie, as the caretaker of Mortimer, to make sure he wants for nothing. And young Mortimer, I appoint you as the Head Chef in the Kingdom!"

And so it was. Mortimer remained as the Head Chef of the Kingdom throughout the King's reign. He and Alfie remained fast friends, and often spent evenings remembering how they brought Real Dragon Stew to the Kingdom.


Lizzie says that Dragons make excellent chefs, don't they?

  Heya, Norman!
Thanks a bunch and more for stopping by with your vote! Oh, we have some December weather here--cold and the wind is howling past the patio doors! But it won't last long, and we are gonna be back in the mid to upper 40's next week. Go figure!

Installment number 3 of our story coming right up!


When the king saw Alfie approaching the castle with a dragon on a leash, he was ecstatic! He couldn't believe that his pageboy was able to capture a dragon!

Alfie and Mortimer went into the kitchen and made dinner for the king that night. They made deviled eggs, deviled ham, and a huge salad for him. The king complimented Alfie on the meal, and asked when he would get to taste dragon stew. Alfie told the king he was fattening up the dragon, and to be patient.

For the next 2 weeks, Alfie and Mortimer made fabulous dinners for the king and his guests. They made many tasty dishes, hams, roasts, lamb chops, chicken, turkey, whatever the king had in his huge freezers. The king was getting more and more impatient, though, and kept demanding to eat his dragon stew!

Finally, at the end of the third week, Alfie brought out a huge stew pot and set it before the king. He served the king from the pot, then took it around and served it to all his guests. The king tasted the dragon stew, and was totally thrilled! It was the very best stew he had ever eaten, and he complimented Alfie on the wonderful recipe. At the end of the meal, the king told his guests that they had eaten dragon stew, but they would never have it again, because that was the last dragon in the kingdom, and probably in the world.


Oh NO! Did Alfie put Mortimer in the pot? How could he? Find out the exciting conclusion tomorrow!

Wing hugs coming your way!
