I was walking through the pet store and he and his brother were on the floor walking around. Dixie started to crawl up my leg and I picked him up and looked into his big beautiful eyes and that was that..

Hi! My name is Dixie

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from Marstons Mills, MA.

Keets, Keetsie

21 years old   M

Green-Cheeked Conure

Dixies loves fruity pebbles, peanut butter, all kinds of fruit and food.

favorite hangout spots are snuggling inside my bathrobe or coat at night watching t.v or on my shoulder as I move through the house. Also he likes to go walking with me in the good weather on his harness or in his carriage.

Doesn't like to be kept in the cage all day. He doen't like it when he can't be out where all the action is. And he doesn' like it when he sees my suitcase when I go on vacation. He will pull all the underwear and soxs out of the luggage. Dixie also doesn' like taking his meds and will give me a good fight. If I don't hide it in his favorite foods good enough, he will know and won't eat it.

Mom spoils me the most and I get to eat off Dad's plate and don't have to spend time in the cage when Mom's home and I get so much love and kisses everyday! And snuggle time!

Dixie loves to take showers in the kitchen sink and spray water all over the place. He also loves to flap his wings in the shower on his shower perch. Dixie also likes to walk around the bird room floor looking for crumbs..

Have wings will travel. Must be where the action is..

  Hi Dixie
Thanks for liking my pics.
That was so much fun at the Milonga and then around 9pm ... the problems started. The i5 people say the problem with our site is that they had nothing to do with it. The original people are no longer there. They were the ones that had the Bird talk magazine for years and years. You would think they could come up with a fix!
Oh my mom is a dryer person. She loves the warm sheets, towels and clothes. My (moms) G-ma was the same way. Dad's mom hangs outside.
I bet that pedi felt so good. That would be greyt to get one every day if your mom had the time. is all the hauling done mow? cam your mom relax a bit?
Mrs Fox comes by daily as do many other animals. Tonight, there were scraps put out for all. She was happy tonight.
We are done today with the nasty t-storms and tornado watch.
Today sure was a nasty big stormy day. The thunder booms and flashy lights were pretty bad. There is a lot of damage around. We were lucky and are fine. I hope that every bird and family are doing ok too.
Maybe we'll start getting better weather soon, I hope so.
Hugs

  Hi Dixie
mom and dad were eating dinner tonight and mom heard commotion coming from my cage and saw my foot was caught in my baby nest i sit in. i was flapping and hanging off the side by my bad leg. mom went over and held me so i wasn't dangling anymore and then dad took the nest from the cage which i was still caught in and worked for at least 3 minutes to get my foot untangled and dad said no more nest for me. tonight i sat all evening with mom in the bedroom and held my leg up but i still hoped around a bit using the leg. mom is glad i didn't pull my leg off i was struggling so hard.

love Boo Boo

  Sugar waddles quietly through the house and taps
softly on Dixie's door. He is right there to open it for her! She waddles in and throws her wings around him. She holds him tightly and tells him how very happy she is to be here with him tonight! She has been looking forward to this time all day long! Spending time with Dixie is her more favorite time of the day!

"How are you tonight? I hope the day was just perfect! I'm so happy you got to have some outside time! I know you love it so very much. I had a nice day and even got a new toy in my night cage to chew on while mom was sleeping! I did a great job on it and filled my food bowl up with all the foam and wood pieces I chewed off! I'm quite proud of myself!hehehehehehe"

The friends waddle over to the platform and snuggle close together. Sugar hands Dixie the Hello Kitty lunch box! He opens it and finds 2 small cherry pies inside!! He puts the pies on napkins while Sugar pours them each a cold glass of cherry smoothie!
They nibble on the pie and sip the smoothie as Sugar shows Dixie the book she has for them tonight.

"This story it called "I can do it myself". The little Princess decides to go camping. She packs a bag and head out. Her father the king asks if he can carry her bags for her but the little Princess says "I can do it myself". Her mother the queen offers to help but the Princess wants to do it herself!
She finds a lovely place to camp and opens her bag to get her tent only she forgot to pack the tent! She goes off to find something to use as a tent and while she is gone the butler puts up a tent for her! When she comes back and see the tent, she figures she forgot she had it with her!
Next she is going to make something to eat only she forgot the food! She goes off to search for food and the cook comes and leaves her a big meal! She comes back and figures she forgot that she had food with her. When it is time for bed she realizes that she doesn't have her sleeping bag! She goes off in search of something to sleep on and the maid makes up a bed in the tent for her! She figures she forgot that she had her bedding with her!
The next day when she heads home she realizes that her bag is much heavier than when she left. Everyone is waiting for her and offers to help her with her bag! She tells them that she can do it herself! She says that she did everything for herself and now needs a nap because it was very tiring!"

Dixie and Sugar love the pie and the smoothie! They are both giggling over how much help the Princess got and she doesn't even realize it! They both agree that if they went camping they certainly wouldn't forget the food!!
Sugar clean up after their snack and props Dixie's legs up onto the Hello Kitty pillow. She massages his legs and asks him how his evening went. She tells him that she enjoyed the new toy and then helped mom put the laundry away tonight! She agrees with him that laundry is so much fun! Sugar tells Dixie that she loves the towels the best!

  Heya, Dixie!
Oh, that is awful that the rain came and got the laundry wet again! Mom says that she hangs up some of her things and it was so humid they did not want to dry. So she turned on the air and had the fan blowing air on them, and they finally got dry. It was hot today, but then it got rainy and the temp went from 83 to 61 in a real short time. Sun came out, and it got to 76. Guess we get more rain tonight and then tomorrow we are gonna be lucky to hit 70. Mom has to get up early for a meeting at a different campus of the company. Has to be there by 8 AM. UGH. So she will have to get moving in the morning when she gets up--she likes to wake up slowly. Like that is not gonna happen tomorrow!

Glad your Dad got stuff to take to the dump for your Mom. That is super for her! Your Mom has got to take it a little easier--like that is gonna happen, huh? Mom's are like that--do too much! But it is nice that she got help for that stuff from skin sis. And it was great that you got outside too! Nothing better!!

Sending you big beaky kisses and wing hugs! They always make things the best, and Mom and I love yours so much!

  Hi Dixie
Seems everytime the moms leave and have clothes on the line it rains doesnt it? Sure seems that way for my mom too. Mom is the designated barber/ hair cutter in this family too. The whole trouble when it comes to her own hair she always has to pay LOL. Mom just didnt want me being stressed out if I was when the rugrats were screaming during the yard sale so that is really why she made me come inside though. The milonga was lots of fun last night and thanks to all that make it happen! Mom and dad went down to skin brothers to day. Dad needed to get skin brother to do a weld job for the trailer that belongs to the trail. Mom went along to see the grands since she hasn’t been down in a while to see them. She had some things to give them too. The girls have long black hair like their mom and it grows so fast too. Its so black and shiny and thick and even dad remarked how pretty theirs was. They sure are growing up so fast!! The oldest one goes to the senior high this year and is a little nervous about that but am sure she will do fine. ”Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward”.

I am soooo sorry about your little footie. I wish I could come up there and massage it for you. Did they have a Milonga last night? Mom was in that sad place of hers and we did not get to go anywhere. Today is getting back to normal. I know that because mom sprayed me again with that stuff, yuck! Then dad said she had to spray my back because I was picking at it. Dad cooked out today and caught be red beaked working on the window sill and asked mom eggactly how long has that been going on? At least I got to come out and dance for dad and supervise the cooking! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Love and winghugs, Cookie

  Hi Dixie
Hello everyone, Zeena here with today's BOTM POST. Today we head to the warm tropical Island Luzon, Philippines and visit an unusual and exotic species of Dove. The Luzon Bleeding-Heart. The Luzon Bleeding-heart (Gallicolumba luzonica) is one of a number of species of ground dove in the genus Gallicolumba that are called "bleeding-hearts". They get this name from a splash of vivid red colour at the centre of their white breasts. The Luzon Bleeding-heart is the species in which this feature is most pronounced, and on first sight it is hard to believe that the bird has not recently been wounded. A reddish hue that extends down the belly furthers the illusion of blood having run down the bird's front. The Luzon Bleeding-heart was featured on a Philippine 2-peso postage stamp in 1994.


The Luzon bleeding-heart is classified as Near Threatened (NT) on the IUCN Red List and is listed on Appendix II of CITES., since it is commonly trapped. Local people use it for meat, but its striking appearance means that there is also a market for it in the pet trade. A captive breeding project has been started in Australia, and the Philippines. Habitat conservation is a priority but it will also be necessary to bring some of the three other species of bleeding heart doves (Negros, Sulu and Mindoro) into captivity, to prevent their extinction. Recently the first captive population of Negros bleeding heart doves has been established in the Philippines.

Only two of the five species of bleeding heart doves are held in captivity in Europe at present: the Luzon and the Mindanao. The European breeding programs for these species are coordinated by Bristol Zoo Gardens. They are being managed to provide a self-sustaining captive population and to develop important care and breeding techniques for use in the Philippines.

Identifying the areas where Luzon bleeding heart doves are found and the numbers that are left is the next step needed to secure this species in the wild. Once sites have been selected with the local community, the area will be protected to ensure the survival of the species in that area.

The areas where the bleeding heart dove lives also contain many other birds unique to these islands, all of which have been threatened by deforestation. In addition, some are threatened by hunting and illegal collection for the pet trade. By highlighting the plight of the bleeding heart dove, conservationists work to save the habitat for all the species in the area.

Although extremely rare in Aviculture 2 pairs were found for sale at $5000.US per pair.

  Hi Dixie
Mom is so jealous that her cereal is still in the store there, even if their shelves are empty. The company should be smart enough to hire back the boss all the employees liked. Do they dislike the new guy, or is it just loyalty to the one who is gone? That kind of thing can get very ugly. We had picketing going on here at all the major stores except Trader Joe's a few years back when the workers were striking. We still went to Albertsons for emergencies since they are right around the corner, and Trader Joe's was packed all the time.

The milonga sure was a lot of fun, although I still say the ladies in bikinis (you know who you are!!) took serious advantage of distracting us poor guys in the volleyball game. Still not sure who won, and I don't really care. What fun! The band sounded greyt as usual, Ms BB and her liquid refreshments were delicious and Lizzie's buffet....well, let's just say nobirdy went home hungry.

If you come to my page and look at the first two pics in my gallery you will see Gloria the car in all her gleaming glory (why do you think Mom named her Gloria). That's right; the new USB cable arrived yesterday and the pics are finally downloaded on my page. I don't mind sharing space with her at all, as long as she doesn't drive me to the groomers. We are going to have a long chat very soon.

Had a nice sunbath this morning, and we didn't get out till 9:30!! There were actually a few clouds out, so the weather was very slightly cooler. Just in the upper 80s today, which is an improvement. It still doesn't cool off much at night, and Mom has to leave the fan going in my room with my cover open about 6". Which means I wake up as soon as the sun comes up. Mom usually gets up around then anyway, but now I make sure she does!

Oh, and today I like peaches! Mom bought a couple more when she and Dad went to the grocery store yesterday, since they had some more locally grown ones. This time I decided they were good, which is fortunate since Mom said the grapes were so awful she didn't get me any.

It was another fun milonga last night. It was great to see everybirdie there! Mom signed off because of all the thunder and lightning, but we all stayed til the fireworks were done, then went home in Ipo's shuttle. Thanks to Kiddo, Taz, Lizzie, and Sam for another great party!
Mom spent yesterday afternoon at the pool, it turned out to be a gorgeous day. Last night the thunderstorms rolled in right around time for the milonga and continued til about 2AM. Mom was kept awake by Daisy, who is scared of the noise. She was wearing her thundershirt, but she was still pacing and whining a bit. Today it's gray, cloudy, and looks like it will rain again. It might be a shopping day or just a stay at home and clean the porch day. I hope you are having a fun day of sunshine and summer weather, and that you can get out to play awhile. Hugs, Pino

It's Ginger.
No, we didn't get any lamb. Dad said that the marinade and seasonings are not good for us. But they smelled great.
It was pretty warm yesterday. Warm enough that dad didn't want to go outside and work. Instead he spent the day getting caught up on stuff in the office and helping mom with our cages. Sassy's and mine are the only ones that didn't get cleaned but they'll do them today. In the evening dad went out and fired up the charcoal side of his new BBQ grill and cooked some Tri-Tip steaks. I guess they were good cuz all we could hear was chewing and grunting and groaning. I heard dad say that there is nothing like a charcoal grilled steak. I don't know about that. I think I'd take millet over steak any day.
Today, after mom finishes our cages and dad re-mops the floor, they're going to try cooking a pork roast in the Ninja cooker, using the steam/roast function. They've never used that function before so, if the roast doesn't turn out well maybe dad will have a new door stop.
Today will be another hot one. It will be partly cloudy, with a high of 91 and a low of 67.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Ginger.

Thanks Kiddo, SP, Taz, & Lizzie, what a fabulous Beach Party Milonga you put on last night, and Sammy and the Scruffies did a great job also, with good music! Sorry we had to be pulled away so soon, the neighbor man wanted to talk, and dad's sister called about a family matter, both were very chatty! Limon had a really good time and got to meet his hero Taz, they like each other as good buddies already! This should be a peaceful Sunday for us, dad has to finish assembling Limon's new cage, it should work really good for him! We are going to try to get Limon's BC page put up as soon as time allows, he is truly a remarkable TooMan! Have a great day, and give my love to all in your home, see ya tomorrow dear Sunday friends...

  Hi Dixie and Kallie,
What in the world was Kallie thinking to go flying down the yard like that? We know, he just wanted to be with the hoomans, but still how scary for your mom! He probably shaved a few years off her life!

The Cuddler still has about 3 years of school to go. She doesn't have her bachelor's yet but when she's done, she will have both a bachelor's and a master's.

Today is bird fair day! Hopefully the breeder will sell some of her baby cockatiels. She only has one parrotlet ready to go but she always sells all her parrotlets. Of course the Cuddler and BW are going to help out. Sammi the sennie is going too, as a mascot bird for the booth. The breeder has a Meyer's mascot that she usually takes too.

We'll ask her today where she gets all her meds. We know she gets them from oveseas but we don't know the website. If your mom ever has questions about meds and dosages we'd be glad to pass on the breeder's contact info to her.

Hope you have a greyt (and dry!) Sunday! We love you!

Love,
Rico & Paulie

Oh yes, the BC has been a royal pain in the tail feathers lately. You would think that they would have an updated system. They claim that our site is too hard to handle ... well, they can't be very good as far as I can see. It started messing up after 9pm tonight for me. Seems to be doing ok now .... I probably am jinxing myself!
Don't you have a dryer? What do you do in the winter? My mom always uses a dryer, never hangs anything out to dry.
We have been in the high 60's and low 70's during the day this week. It doesn't look like any swim time this summer for us up here.
Oh no, the cold is so bad for your toes. I think you need to wear fuzzy slippers. I wish I could make them well for you.
It's been a dark day here with a little rain. The really bad storm is south of us and heading for PA and the east coast. We had the scary thunder booms last night.
This evening, Mrs Fox came to the patio looking for scraps. Sorry, but I ate all my dinner. She sat out there for a little while staring at us. Try again tomorrow.
What a fun Milona Beach Party tonight. I just wish the BC didn't act up for some of us.

a lot of new moms think that is awful to put tots on leashes but mom thinks when you have a very active tot or tots it is a very good idea. did you know they now sell foam helmets for infants learning to walk so they don't fall and bang their heads. if you went into someones home and saw their baby walking around with a foam helmet on wouldn't you think their is something medically wrong with it. i think sometimes poor kids grow up with a better understanding of life than richs kids who are coddled, given everything under the sun and brought up by nannies.

  Sugar waddles up to Dixie's door~
and finds him waiting there for her! She waddles in and throws her wings around him. She holds him tightly and tells him how very happy she is to be here! It was a boring day and she has been waiting for this time to come! She is always so very happy to spend time with Dixie!

"How are you tonight? I hope you had a wonderful day. Mom and I were both worn out from all the visits yesterday so we spent a quiet day together. I did help with cleaning the kitchen!!"

The friends waddle over to the platform and snuggle close together. Sugar hands Dixie the Hello Kitty lunch box and he opens it to find sugar cookies inside! He puts the cookies on napkins for them while Sugar pours them each a big glass of blueberry smoothie! They nibble on the cookies and sip the smoothies while Sugar pulls out the book she has for them tonight!

"This story is called "Elsie's Bird". Elsie is a little girl who lived in Boston a long time ago. She loves her city and like to visit the harbor and play with her friends. She loves hearing all the birds sing and can name every bird in her neighborhood.
Her father is not happy living in Boston so he tells Elsie they are going to move to Nebraska! He has bought some land out there and they are going to farm! Elsie is not sure if she will like it there or not! Before they leave Boston her father buys her a canary. She names him Tommy Tune and soon he is her best friend.
Elsie doesn't like Nebraska much at all. There is no harbor and her house is miles from the nearest neighbor. She and Tommy Tune spend their days together doing chores and singing.
One day Elsie is cleaning Tommy's cage and he gets out! She grabs the cage and runs after him. She is so upset! She has never been away from the house before and has no idea where she is! She hears Tommy's singing and calls to him. She flies back to her but they don't know how to get back to their house! Soon Elsie hears her father calling her and she finds her way back home! Waiting there for her is a big dog her father brought back for her! She and Tommy are both very happy to have a new friend! They decide that maybe Nebraska is okay after all!"

Sugar cleans up after their snack and props Dixie's legs up onto the Hello Kitty pillow. She starts to massage his legs and tells him how happy she is that Tommy Tune made it back to Elsie. It would be very scary to think of him out there all by himself!
Sugar asks Dixie how his day went. She hope it was a good day and that he got to do lots of fun things!

Soon the friends are yawning and stretching their wings! It is time to get some sleep! Sugar wraps a wing around Dixie and gives him a kiss goodnight!
They say their prayers and include a special one just for Nana. Sugar has her own set of special prayers just for Dixie. She loves him so very, very much!

Sleep tight and Sweet dreams Bird of My Heart!
I love you to the Moon and back!

  Heya, Dixie!
Oh, wasn't the Milonga great tonight? All those lovely birdies in bikinis--I swear, my heart couldn't take it (ha, ha!). Such a nice time, and such a nice thing that the BC was up for it all. Though Miss Chyna said that she was having problems, but so far so good.

Wow. Your Mom is really bound and determined to get things cleaned out of the house! Mom says that she still has to do the run to Goodwill with some of the clothes she still wants to get rid of. She will get there.

I was waiting for Mom to get up this morning. Nope, was not hungry. Not cuz it was light out...but because I know today is Saturday! FARMER'S MARKET DAY! Mom had to run to the store first, but I followed her around the house just in case she forgot that I knew it was the best day of the week. She says I am pretty darn smart. Of course!

And we went to the market, and I got the nice guy from the pie place whistle for me, and had so many people say hi to me. Got to flirt with Paula, too, and even said "You're a big cutie!" which came out pretty clear for her. She just thinks I am the best! I think she is awesome! Got some carrots there, and corn on the cob (oh, soooo yummy!) and some potatoes--YUMYUMYUM! I just love Saturday!

Guess we get some rain too, tonight or tomorrow. Big storms heading out east, so hope all is okay with you. Mom watched the Weather Channel and they had some bad storms headed your way. Sure hope you stay safe and dry!

Wing hugs and beaky kisses coming your way, cuz yours always brighten my day, and Mom's too! XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO,

Your buddy,
Kaji

HI MY SWEET FROTHERS DIXIE, KALLIE AND PEEPERS, I AM DOING OKAY SO FAR. MOM IS KEEPING A CLOSE WATCH ON ME AND SEEING HOW MUCH I EAT. I HAVE NOT THROWN UP OR ACTED SICK AT ALL TODAY. IT WAS NICE BY 2PM SO ME AND SWEETPEPPER GOT SOME GREAT OUTSIDE TIME. WE WERE OUT TILL 5PM. THERE WAS A NICE BREEZE AND THE SUN WAS MOSTLY BEHIND THE CLOUDS.

I WENTTO BED WITH NO COMPLAINTS OR ANYTHING. TOMORROW MOM WILL BE WATCHING ME AGAIN. I AM NOT ALLOWED ON THE FLOOR CAUSE MOM THINKS I PICKED UP SOMETHING FORM THE FLOOR THAT IRRITATED MY CROP.

THE VET STILL DOESN'T LIKE THE LOOKS OF MY FEATHERS. HE IS WORRIED ABOUT FATTY LIVER DISEASE AND OF COURSE ABOUT MY CALCIUM LEVELS. SO I HAVE TO GET BLOOD WORK DONE. MOM IS WORRIED ABOUT THAT AND WHAT MAY SHOW UP. WHATEVER COMES UP I AM A FIGHTER AND I HAVE WONDERFUL FRIENDS THAT WILL PRAY FOR ME. I AM A VERY LUCKY GIRL FOR HAVING LIVED 9 YRS WITH ALL MY HEALTH ISSUES.

SENDING YOU ALL MY TIEL LUV AND LOTS OF BEAKIE KISSES AND WARM WING HUGS.

  Hi Kallie & Dixie!
Congratulations! You two are co-winners of NTT this week, along with Chipper! We decided to make the three of you winners since you were the only three who played this week and last, and because we didn't see a winner announced for last week.

How have you been? We are well and really enjoying the new house. School is done for the summer, the new job is going great, and the Cuddler is enjoying having a somewhat normal life for a change! We have deer in our backyard every day. Yesterday the Cuddler was sitting in the backyard reading. She looked up and saw a buck standing about 20 feet away, just looking at her! He was so beautiful! Pepper and the new parrotlet, Donovan, have their cages in the back bay window so they get to see the deer every day as well.

Speaking of Donovan, he got really sick and spent a week and a half at the birdie hospital (aka the breeder's). He had a combination bacterial and fungal infection. Thankfully the breeder has all the right medicines on hand and knows how to treat small birds, and she pulled him through. He would have died if it wasn't for her. We are so glad she's our friend - she knows more than a lot of vets do about birds!

She is doing great with her parrotlet breeding - she has her first albino baby and her first pied baby! She is really eggscited about them and so are we!

Thanks so much for being such wonderful friends to us! We hope you and your parronts and nana are having a fantastic summer!

Love,
Rico & Paulie

  Hi WHOOPS DIXIE
Hello my dear BC friends. It was a long day without our beloved BC family but we are happy to say once it was up and going it was actually much faster then before. I had a special request from one of my friends to example the breeding of mutations. As this is a limited BOTM series I will touch on it briefly. For anyone interested in more in depth study I have a number of very good links and references.
In simplest terms a "mutation" is any deviation from the "normal wild-type" of any species of animal or bird. They occur spontaneously in the wild, as well as in captivity. In the wild MOST mutations have a very limited life-span owing to their coloration or other physical characteristics that make them more visible and easier prey. An example of a successful mutations are the red markings on normal Congo African Greys. These individuals integrate well into existing grey colored flocks.
In Captivity mutations are able to live and mature thereby offering breeders an opportunity to reproduce like marked/colored offspring. An excellent example is the Blue Budgie. These spontaneously occurred in several continents. By breeding Blue offspring back to normal parents the breeders were able to produce more of the same. Through selective culling and breeding of F2-second generation-blues the color was stabilized. Mutations can continue to occur even in a new mutation color--such as the blue Budgies who then produced offspring with yellow-Lutino or albino pigments. Inbreeding, selective crossing and out crosses to other colored mutations has given rise to all the many colors common in Budgies.
When looking specifically at Quaker Parrots, whose natural color is green/grey we find that the first mutation was a Blue baby hatched in Belgium in the 1940s. It is a complete replacement of the normal green plumage by blue. The gene for blue plumage is Autosomal Recessive and both hens and cocks can be heterozygous or ‘split’ for or‘carriers’ of blue – depending upon your favored terminology! This means--both parents must carry the gene to produce blue even though they are visually "normals" Today there are a large number of mutations being bred.
With all mutations, breeders must cull out the colors they do not want and breed the desired colors into the gene pool. Through consecutive generations of offspring the color is improved upon, often mutating from the original mutation thereby adding yet another new color for serious breeders to work with. Mutation possibilities are limitless as they occur spontaneously and can not be "created" by humans. Hybrids must not be confused with mutations. Hybrids are the result of breeding two diverse species within the same Genera together--examples of which are the Hybrid Macaws, Blue/Gold mated to a Green Wing etc.
Today we will visit a selection of mutations from a number of different species, I hope you enjoy the results.

  Hi Dixie
When mom would try to go on BC it would go to my page but she couldnt log in. Silly mom thought at first I had won BOTD LOL. She sure knew that wasnt right but glad that BC is all fixed and hope it stays that way. Oh boy I bet that sewing machine sure was heavy!! Mom remembers she had one a long time ago when she was a teenager at home. Maybe it will be sold as an antique and the second hand store will get big bucks from it! Skin sis and the grand tried to sell the yard again ! Last week they were going to do the yard sale on Friday and Saturday but on Saturday it poured rain so they waited till this weekend and do it instead. It was a nice day and I got out to see everyone. When little kids would come and be yelling and screaming I would yell real loud too so that ended me up in the house a few times locked down too. Those little rugrats just have a voice and when they scream I like to do it too. I didn’t see them being in lock down for it though so don’t think it was fair that I was. Mom isn’t sure if I learned my lesson or not though. ”Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward”. Leaving a vote for you!! Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Dixie
The cereal that my mom liked was made by Kellog's in their Fiber Plus line and called Cinnamon Oat Crunch. Mom especially liked it because it didn't get soggy in milk. She hates soggy cereal. Her new cereal is peanut butter cheerios, and it is almost as good at not getting soggy. She had expected more of a peanut butter flavor though. I liked the old cereal better too.

Just a quick fly by to remind everybirdy that tonight is the July Fun in the Sun milonga. It is a lakeside beach party, and I sure hope everybirdy will be there. It will be a simple one, since the County Fair is in August and that one takes a lot of time to get ready, but it will still be a lot of fun.

Oh, and the pig racers are posted on the milonga page with their pig's names, so you can all see them tonight.

It's supposed to rain and thunder today, but the sun is shining brightly so far. Mom has plans either way: If it is sunny, naturally it will be pool time; if it's raining, there is a street sale going on in Oakmont, which is close by, and also she got coupons for Penney's. Either way, she'll be back in plenty of time for us to attend the milonga. Hope to see you there, too. Hugs, Peppino

  Morning Dixie once again from Jen & flock
Hello Adler kids, I hope to see many of our friends at the Milonga Beach Party tonight, it should be a lot of fun for all who attend! We're having a hot, muggy, overcast day, but these days come and go, no complaints with our Summer so far! Dad had great time with his old friends yesterday, they talked for hours, what could they possibly have to talk about! This should be an easy day for dad, not much happening, I hope your Saturday is equally laid back and peaceful, and let's all be aware that sadly, bird injuries can happen to any of us, in that magical split second, a constant vigil must ALWAYS be in place! Have a great day and give my love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

Loving ya forever, Jenny & the Dallas family

  Hi Dixie
It's Ginger.
Did you miss us? Yesterday morning, when dad tried to log us on, the BC was down. Dad kept trying but
nothing would work so he sent messages to Crystal and went out to take care of things on his list.

So, let's see, What happened on Thursday? Oh yeah, On Thursday mom and dad stayed home all morning and then mom said that they needed produce. So, off to Sprouts they went. They also went to Petsmart for more corn cob cage bedding for us. Then they picked more burgers at In-N-Out and headed to the park for the concert they missed last week. The group was called Cold Duck and they played something for everybody. Mom and dad liked them a lot and want to see them again.

Now, yesterday, since the BC was down, dad took mom to the police station and came home and started cleaning the carpets. Never mind that the temperature was around 90. Dad said it wasn't that bad. He has a "Rug Doctor" machine so the job wasn't too hard. Dad only did the hallway but said that the carpets are so dirty that it's going to take two cleanings to get them clean. He'll let the hallway dry and then try the second
cleaning to see how it goes.

When dad brought mom home, mom started fixing fresh green beans for dinner. We get the ends of the beans so everyone won. Dad grilled lamb steaks on the gas side of his new grill. He said that the strong flavor of charcoal would over power the lamb. Guess he knows because mom said they were great.

Yesterday was partly cloudy, with a high of 90 degrees and the low of 67. Today will be partly cloudy, with a
high 90 of and a low of 68, almost the same.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Ginger.

  Hi Dixie
The first time mom logged into BC it brought up somebirdy's else's flock and name . It was early in the morning so mom figured she wasn;t doing something correctly, so she did it again and the same flock came up. Mom immediately emailed Crystal because it looked liked a cyperjack thingy or something. And no one on the mail list complained until later and that was completely different with it being slow or inaccessible. Now today, mom has a suspicious email in her queue from A C with the subject UPS delivery. Well as far as mom is concerned all of our UPS stuff has been delivered--she did not open the email and deleted it. It is not the first time sick sadistic hackers have gotten into our site here. Mom just sits here and shakes her head seeing us as a loving community of decent people and you have to have one of the sick b****** fiddle with the integrity of our site. There is no money being eggchanged here merely fellowship, love and support and it just disgusts her that these things happen. With all the cyber security measures and firewalls etc and some sick SOB does this just to gain access to our passwords and logins. Well, that just plain tuckered mamma bird out today. She is going back to being depresses right now. Told ANgel and AUnt Jeanne not to bother to visit because she just was no fun today. I am glad you got your medicine--tell Kallie to keep his beak outta it and Candi to leave your leg alone. Love and winghugs, Cookie

Mom can't believe that I'm 4 either. She is so happy that I had a healthy hatchday. When I first came home with her ... both vets said I was a sick little girl. They say that no one would believe that this is me now ... I look so much better. A good loving home is all we feathered children need.
I'm still enjoying my new toys ... some don't look very good anymore ... hehehehe.
Hope to see you at the Milonga on Saturday.
I had a fun day on Thursday, destroying my new toys. I was able to wish Falco a Happy Hatchday and then shortly after ...no BC! I kept trying most of the night and then gave up. Friday morning, still no BC! I say we kick that server in the tail feathers! At least the weather is partly sunny and low 70's ... not too bad. Have a greyt weekend. Oh oh ...

  Dixie and Sugar thank Aunt Rose for the
great dinner and a very fun day! They waddle over to the platform and grab the Hello Kitty lunch box from the Hello Kitty wagon.
Dixie opens it up to find snickerdoodles inside! He puts them on napkins while Sugar pours them each a big glass of blackberry smoothies.
They nibble on the cookies and sip the smoothies while Sugar picks a book for them to read tonight!

"This story is called "Sheep in a Jeep". It's a silly story but it rhymes! I love the ones that rhyme! The sheep are in the jeep trying to drive up a steep hill. The jeep stops and won't go any farther!! The sheep get out and start to push! They do not pay attention to where they are going and push the jeep into a big mud puddle! They try to pull it out but keep slipping! They need help! A bunch of pigs come by to help them and pull the jeep out of the mud! They pull the jeep out of the mud!! The sheep thank the pigs and jump back in! They are off again but the jeep is not doing so well. Down, down the hill they go and crash right into a tree! The sheep are fine but the jeep did not make it!"

Sugar and Dixie love the cookies and the smoothies! They both giggle at how the sheep don't really drive very well at all and in the end the jeep gets smashed into a tree! The sheep put a for sale sign on it and walk the rest of the way!!

Sugar cleans up after their snack and props Dixie's legs up onto the Hello Kitty pillow. She massages his legs and thanks him for having her over today! She had the most wonderful time staying here with him today and really appreciates his hospitality! She hopes Dixie had a great time too! Nothing better than spending time with a dear friends like you!

They start yawning and stretching their wings! It is time for sleep! Sugar wraps a wing around Dixie and gives him a kiss goodnight!
They say their prayers and include a special one just for Nana!
Sugar has her own special prayers just for Dixie. She wants him to be healthy and happy always! She loves him so very much!
Sleep tight and sweet dreams Bird of My Heart!
I love you to the Moon and back!

  Hi Dixie
mom was at the store today waiting for the cashier to ring up her order and a woman with 2 small girls was in front of her. the littles girl was whinning for some candy and the mom kept saying no so the little girl picked up a candy bar and bite into it through the wrapper and all and then placed it back with the other candy. the little girl then noticed mom was staring at her watching her bad behavior and gave mom this cutey pie smile. for one of the few times in moms life she kept her mouth shut and face expressionless as she stared down the little brat who then burst into tears and ran to her mommy. mom thinks she taught the little girl a lesson but isn't quite sure what. either don't do that again or to be more sneaky. mom is hoping for the first result. by the way don't ever buy the candy near the checkout counter at any store.

MY SWEET FROTHERS DIXIE, KALLIE AND PEEPERS AND CANDIDA,

WELL I SCARED MOM AND G-MA THIS AFTERNOON. I WAS FINE THIS MORNING, I ATE SOME BREAKFAST AND PLAYED. THEN G-MA AND I WENT TO TAKE A NAP. WELL WHEN G-MA WOKE UP AND CAME OUT TO THE LIVING ROOM SHE NEEDED LUNCH SO MOM HAD TO MAKE LUNCH FOR HER. WELL MOM BROUGHT LUNCH TO G-MA AND SHE SAW HOW MESSY MY FACE AND HEAD AND BODY LOOKED. I HAD MUCOUS AND TINY BITS OF BLACK SEED ON ME. G-MA TRIED TO CLEAN ME UP AND MOM WENT TO CALL THE VET. THEY AT FIRST SAID THAT I COULDN'T GET IN TILL MONDAY AND THEY GAVE MOM TWO OTHER CLINICS THAT TOOK EXOTIC PETS TO CALL. WELL BOTH PLACES DID NOT TAKE IN BIRDS. SO MOM CALLED OUR VET BACK AND SAID SHE WOULD TAKE THE MONDAY MORNING APPT AND HOPED THAT I WOULD LIVE TO SEE THE APPT. WELL HALF HOUR LATER THE RECEPTIONIST CALLED MOM AND SAID THAT THE VET COULD SEE ME AT 4:15PM. MOM SAID SHE WOULD BE THERE WITH ME. WHEN MOM GOT THERE THE RECEPTIONIST APOLOGIZED AS SHE DID NOT KNOW MY HISTORY.

THE VET CHECK ME OVER VERY CAREFULLY. MY EYES WERE BRIGHT AND CLEAR, MY NARES WERE CLEAR, NOTHING IN MY MOUTH. CROP WAS EMPTY AND ABDOMEN FELT FINE. HE WAS WORRIED ABOUT LIVER PROBLEMS BUT I WAS STRESSED OUT. SO HE TOLD MOM TO KEEP A CLOSE WATCH ON ME AND BRING ME BACK IN MONDAY MORNING. HE SAID I MAY HAVE EATEN SOMETHING THAT IRRITATED MY CROP. MOM IS HOPING THAT IS TRUE. SO ITS GOING TO BE A LONG STRESSFUL WEEKEND FOR MOM WATCHING MY EVERY MOVE. I WAS PRETTY SASSY WHEN I LEFT THE VETS OFFICE. I YELLED AT HIM TO LET HIM KNOW JUST WHAT I FELT.

MOM TOLD THE VET THAT WHEN SHE SAW THAT I WAS SICK SHE WASN'T GOING TO TAKE ANY CHANCES AND WANTED TO GET ME SEEN RIGHT AWAY. MY OLD VET WOULD GET ME IN RIGHT AWAY AS SHE KNEW MY HISTORY. I LOOKED SO MUCH BETTER BY TIME I GOT THERE EXCEPT MY CREST FEATHERS, CHEEK FEATHERS AND NECK FEATHERS WERE STILL A BIT MATTED FROM THROWING UP. THE VET AGREED THAT WITH MY HISTORY ITS GOOD THAT I GOT IN. I WAS TOO STRESSED FOR HIM TO DO ANYTHING RIGH THEN AND SINCE I WAS LOOKING FINE AND NOT THROWING UP ANYMORE, HE DECIDED TO WAIT TILL MONDAY MORNINGS APPT TO DO A BLOOD DRAW. SWEETPEPPER IS COMING IN WITH ME AS SHE NEEDS TOES DONE AND A BIRDIE CHECKUP. SO WILL LET YOU KNOW AFTER MONDAY WHAT HAPPENS.

PLEASE KEEP ME IN YOUR PRAYERS THIS WEEKEND
