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..

  Day 18--Cape Breton Highlands National Park
Hello everybirdie, Angel Girl here with today's BOTM post. It was so eggciting to see the whales so up close and personal. The majestic giants were happy to show-off their talents, leaping, and blowing for us as we paddled among them heading for our new campsite at Cape Breton National Park. I wish to take a moment to thank everyone for their their daily votes and support in my quest for the throne. Sharing this adventure with all my friends is making it a special memory for me.
After paddling along the coast we finally arrived at Cheticamp, on the edge of Park. Here we were reunited with our horses, and were able to pick up a few needed supplies that my frothers Jesse and Amanda, being boys, forgot to include in our packs. The park is located in the northern end of the island and covers one-third of the Cabot Trail. It passes through the park featuring spectacular ocean and mountain views. The park is well known for its "steep cliffs and deep river canyons that carve into a forested plateau bordering the Atlantic Ocean" The park was the first National Park in the Atlantic provinces of Canada and covers an area of 948 km². It is one of 42 in Canada's system of national parks. It is known worldwide as the place where singer Taylor Mitchell died after being fatally attacked by coyotes, the only adult human fatality from coyotes in history.
At the western entrance of the park is the Acadian village of Chéticamp on the Gulf of Saint Lawrence . On the eastern side of the park are the beaches at Ingonish on the Atlantic Ocean. In between are mountains, valleys, forests, waterfalls, rocky coastlines and a tundra-like plateau known as the Cape Breton Highlands. Park wildlife includes moose, black bears, coyotes, and Bald Eagles. The park provides habitat for the uncommon Bicknell's Thrush and Gaspe' Shrew. The first nest records of Boreal Owls for Nova Scotia were found in the south west corner of this park.
" Lalo, come on, you have enough souvenirs" Jenny-Lynn says, wings on her hips as she keeps an eye on her fister in the gift shop in Cheticamp.
"What's this Acadian thing?" Gus asks Hulk, "reading a sign mounted in town square
"Acadians are of mixed decent, French and other races. They came here from Louisiana"
"So we can get some Cajun cookin here? Let's go get something to eat!" Gus replies happily
"Wait for us" Susan and Snowy yell as they weave through the crowd of horses and riders." can't pass on a greyt meal"
Angel Girl continues to check their supplies list preparing to head to their next camp site.."Oh we need more eggs and oatmeal." She gives the list to Sky who heads off to gather all they need from the store near by.
"This place is beautiful" SamIam comments, looking out over the ocean, :has a historic appeal to it."
" I have everything we need. We better ride out before it gets too dark: Sky tells Angel Girl
"Ok, let's mount up birdies, time to head into the mountains."

  Hi Dixie
So how is skin sis doing? Did they ever figure out what was wrong. How my mom can relate to the liquid diet. She is still only eating one solid meal of rice and veggies per day. Today she ate a little too much and got a tummy ache from it, so she will be very careful after this.

Mom is so excited, because tomorrow she will go back to zumba for the first time in a month! She will train first with Becky, and Becky has planned out an entire session to prep Mom for zumba! Isn't that cool? She is the best trainer ever, and she really looks after my mom. They are going to go out to lunch together after my mom can eat real food (4 more weeks!)

Well, yes we got the cool down, but they were calling for low 80s, and we got 87. Not low in my opinion, but it did mean I was able to go out for my sunbath at 9:45 and it was very pleasant. I didn't want my nutriberries for some reason though. I ate half of the first one and dropped it, and turned up my beak at #2. Maybe because they are the bottom of the bag.

However last night when Mom picked up the little can she keeps them in to put it in the hallway as a reminder to go on Amazon Prime and order more, I thought she was getting rid of them and got very upset. However they were back in my room this morning, so all is well.

Voting for rodeo queen begins today, so get on over to the milonga page #165848 and cast your vote for one of the lovely cowgirls in the gallery. Just pick a # and post your vote. One vote per bird in your flock each and every day until midnight EDT on the 24th. Lots of voting activity already, so it will be a great contest.

  Hey Dixie!
That's great that your skin sis got to go home yesterday and didn't have to stay in the hospital. That must have been a real scare!
Sounds like your mom had a very busy day! Our blog is short because mom had a busy morning and now has to get ready for a picnic!
Have a great day!
Love,

  Hi Dixie
We are having a lot of trouble with the pages today, hope you have better luck. It seems we can either vote or blog, so mom picked blog. If we have time later, we'll come by and vote, but if not, I hope you understand.
The Verizon mess is sort of straightened out, but mom is still not happy. There's a popup about Java script every time she signs on, and it's annoying because it won't go away. The first guy she talked to told her over 700,000 accounts had been disabled, due to a breach in security, so hers was one of them. The second guy told her that her computer has a virus, in spite of the fact that we have Kaspersky installed, which is one of the best antivirus thingies out there. Since she had no problems with the rest of the computer, BC, AOL, she figured the first guy was right and the second guy not so much.
In case you missed the buzz yesterday, the vet found nothing broken, but Falco has a huge wound on her side, possibly one she picked open when her leg was hurting. Mom can't see anyplace in the cage where she could have injured herself that badly. It's about 2 cm of open wound, with the skin that far apart. She said it would make no sense to try to stitch it, so just to apply a topical ointment to the spot. She was pleased that Falco's leg is nearly healed, too. That wound was all around her leg, and is healed to about a 2 to 5 mm area of scabbing. Mom is putting the ointment on that, too. Falco is also taking oral antibiotics for 2 weeks, and has a follow up appointment next week.
Mom has an event to attend as a GUEST tonight at the center, how about that? Last year she was invited as a guest, but worked the event instead. This year, they told her to just come and enjoy.
It's another beautiful day in the neighborhood here today, lots of sun and warming as the day goes on. I hope you are having a good day and getting love and sunshine. Hugs, Peppino

  Morning Dixie dear, from Jenny
We are having great Fall like weather, and we will have it for at least the next 6 days, if the weather guessers are correct for a change! We were reminded by some friends to thank God for Queen Chuey and our dear Ms Falco, for having a good health report, two are well with one to go! As I see it, the problem with having so many BC friends is that we are subjected to their pain and suffering when something is wrong with their flock or family, especially if you have a loving caring heart like our daddy and all of us! It is the love of our dear friends that keep us in the race, and as daddy says, we wouldn't have missed it for the world! Happy throw back Thursday to you all and give my love to all in your precious home, see ya tomorrow for sure...

Forever love from Jenny & my family

  Hi Dixie
It's Ginger.
It's cooling down today. Our high yesterday was 97 but today should be around 85. Much better. The low will be 64.
Mom worked at the police station for a while yesterday. She and dad had an open house meeting at 10am but only mom and dad and the community relations manager showed up. So they talked about birds and jewelry. Then dad stopped at Lowe's again and went home and hooked up some better sprinklers. Dad hopes to save water and still keep the lawn green. He also set up the big CD player, dual cassette tape deck and the Mini Disc Player. He managed to put everything on the junky computer desk. Now he has to figure out how to wire it all into the wireless music system.
When dad picked up mom they drove to Johnny Reb's for dinner. Wednesday was "Do Over" day. They can bring back their receipt with three weeks and they well get everything on the receipt, including drinks, for free. Not a bad deal. Dad said he'll go back when he's real hungry, which could be in about ten minutes.
Today dad will recheck his sprinklers and try to connect the stuff to the music system. We're all going to supervise.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Ginger.

  Hi Dixie
Except for being slow, the BC is pretty good tonight ... so far!
So what happened with your skinsis? Did she eat? Coming home soon? This wasn't the surgery yet ... right?
Sounds like another busy and long day for your mom and Nana.
We have a ton of geese that stay year around and a ton that migrate. I don't know why some stay, I wouldn't if I had a choice!!!
Yes, we will wait until everything is out of here. then we will fix the room and bathroom ... again!
We had another nice sunny day. Mom had to take her car in for the "works" as Ford calls it. It is now ready for her trip downstate and to PA. We also received good news that Ms Falco is on the mend. Way to go girlfriend, it was so good to chat with you today. Have a nice evening.
Hugs
Chyna
Hope you feet/legs are feeling good today :)

HI MY SWEET FIBLINGS DIXIE, KALLIE, PEEPERS AND CANDIDA,

OH WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DAY IT WAS TODAY BUT WE DID NOT GET TO ENJOY IT. SWEETPEPPER AND I WERE STUCK IN OUR CAGES ALL DAY LONG WHILE MOM WAS WITH G-PA AT THE HOSPITAL.

G-PA'S SURGERY WAS 2 HOURS LONG THEN IN RECOVERY FOR AN HOUR. IT WAS AT 3;30PM THAT MOM FOUND OUT THAT THEY WERE ADMITTING G-PA. MOM WENT UP TO HIS ROOM AND ANSWERED QUESTIONS FOR THE NURSE AS THEY ADMITTED HIM. HE WAS STILL UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF TEH ANESTHESIA BUT YOU COULD TELL HE WAS IN A LOT OF PAIN. HE HAD HIS HANDS IN FISTS. HE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THAT MOM WAS THERE SO AFTER SHE FINISHED THE QUESTIONS FOR THE NURSE SHE WENT TO PICK G-MA UP FROM HER SISTER'S. MOM DID NOT GETTO EAT ALL DAY SO HER SISTER HAD SOME PIZZA. MOM BROUGHT US SOME PIZZA HOME TO EAT.

MOM DIDN'T WALK IN THRU THE DOOR TILL 6PM. ME AND SWEETPEPPER STARTED YELLING TO BE LET OUT OF OUR CAGES.

MOM WILL CALL THE HOSPITAL IN THE MORNING TO SEE HOW G-PA DID THRU THE NIGHT AND IF TEH DR HAD BEEN IN YET. IT WILL DEPEND ON HIS PAIN LEVEL AND IF HE CAN EAT IF HE COMES HOME TOMORROW. SO PLEASE KEEP HIM IN YOUR PRYERS THAT THE PAIN LESSENS.

OTHERWISE MOM IS TIRED BUT SHE WANTED TO CATHC UP ON HER BLOGS.

WHAT KIND OF PROCEDURE DID SKIN SIS HAVE AT THE HOSPITAL TODAY? HOPE THINGS WENT WELL FOR HER.

SENDING YOU SWEET BEAKIE KISSES AND WARM WING HUGS.

PRAYERS FOR MOM, DAD, KALLIE, PEEPERS AND CANDIDA.

  Sugar cleans up after their snack~
and props Dixie's legs up onto the Hello Kitty pillow. As she massages his legs, she asks how his day went. She hopes that Aunt Rose got some peaceful time today!
She tells him that he can tell by how fluffy she is, that she took another shower. It felt nice.
She helped clean the kitchen and then spent some time chewing on a wood toy. It was a nice day and she hopes Dixie had a nice one too!

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 on just for Nana. They add one for Shiloh too and pray that she keeps healing and feels so much better!
Sugar has her own prayers just for Dixie. She prays he is healthy and happy always! She thanks the Lord for giving her such a wonderful friend! She loves him so very much!

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

  A very Fluffy Sugar waddles quietly through
the house! She tiptoes down the hallway and sees that Dixie is waiting for her! She waddles into the room and throws her wings around Dixie. She holds him very tightly and tells him how very happy she is to be here tonight! She has been counting the minutes until she could come over!

"How are you tonight? I hope your day was fun. We are very happy to hear that Shiloh is out of the hospital! Taking a few days off to rest up is the absolute right thing to do! She would be miserable if she had to go right back to work! Her work should not have any problem with that since she was in the hospital!!!"

The friends waddle over to the platform and snuggle close together. Sugar hand Dixie the Hello Kitty lunch box. He opens it up and sees that Sugar has brought them some Rice Krispie treats tonight!! Dixie puts the treats on napkins for them while Sugar pours them each a glass of strawberry smoothie!
They nibble on the treats and sip the smoothies as Sugar starts to read the book she has for them tonight!

"This story is called "Too Many Toys". In the story a boy named Spencer has a room filled with toys! His toys are everywhere in the house too!
Spencer's parents give him toys, his grandparents give him toys, his Aunt's and Uncle's give him toys and his cousins give him toys! He gets toys as gifts for just about every holiday, even the 4th of July!
Spence loves to have parades with his toys and lines them all down the stairs. He has planes and boats and cars and action figures and even a space helmet!
Spencer's dad gets tired of stepping on Legos and his mom keeps tripping over train tacks! They decide that Spencer has too many toys and it's time to get rid of some of them! Spencer says he can't get rid of any of them because he loves them all! His mom shows him an action figure that has no head and Spencer tells her he is going to make a new head for the doll!!
Spencer and his mother spend hours going through all of Spencer's toys! Finally they have a huge box full of toys that Spencer it going to give away! His mother is very tired and goes downstairs to have a cup of tea! When she goes upstairs to get the box of toys, the toys are all over the floor!! Spencer has his space helmet on and has made a space ship out of the box! He tells his mom she can take the toys but he has to have the cool box to play with!heheheheheh"

Sugar and Dixie love the Rice Krispie treats! The smoothies are great too!
They are both giggling at Spence wanting a box to play with! They both agree that boxes are so much fun to play with so they can understand why Spencer wants to keep the box!

  Heya, Dixie!
Sounds like your Mom had another super busy day today. Gosh, your skin sis sure has not had an easy time of it, either, with her health issues. Sure hope she is feeling better, too.

Looks like the squawk-a-tiels are back again. Sheesh!

It was lovely today, sunny and around 63 degrees, Mom said. She went down to the lakefront at lunchtime, and it was delightful to see a couple sailboats out there on the lake. And when she was sitting there, all of a sudden a bunch of monarch butterflies flew up over the railing (the area she goes to is like a huge deck behind the War Memorial, and it is raised up about two stories high from the ground). And then the dragonflies came along with the monarchs. Watching them both was so cool! She has never seen that many monarch butterflies in one spot at the same time, or dragonflies either. It was hard to go back into work, she told me. And the geese on the water, and ducks...and the flock of seagulls that hovered over the lake was just so neat.

Mom says she is going to her special spot until she can't stand the cold any more....it just makes her feel so in tune with everything around her. She says next year she is gonna take me down there when it is nice out so I can see it for myself. I can't wait.

Sending you big beaky kisses and wing hugs, and know that yours warm us so very much!

  Hi Dixie
Thanks so much for liking my new picture mom put up. Oh I sure hope that skin sis is all better and out of the hospital soon too. Mom sure knows how your mom feels and seems when the kids get older parronts still worry about them and even more so sometimes. Guess it never quits and moms worry all the time about there kids. Today mom met up with her sister again since she knows it wont be long and she will be leaving plus the snow will be flying too. They had lunch together which stretched into almost dinner cause they sit and talk so much so mom is a bit late tonight and on a roll. Catching up again tomorrow night hopefully and chat more then. “Sometimes people ask mom how she can be friends with people she has never met and mom tells them then you have never been on bird channel I bet. That about sums it up to my friend” ~~ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Day 17--A Whale of a Good Time
Good morning everyone, Happy Humpday. Today we will finish our trip along the coast. Arrangements were made for our horses and supplies to be delivered to our newest camp site in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. It's sure been an awesome sight to see all the wild seabirds including Arctic Puffins and several Gull and Tern species. The Grey Seals were a playful surprise, however as many of us know their plight is sad as animal rights groups world-wide fight to ban the annual seal hunt. We had just set off when we were joined by a pod of playful, entertaining whales.
Spot lands eggspertly in his kayak, and waves at a whale! BonBon and Snowflake shriek and laugh as one of the whales 'blows' right next to them and they get showered!"Oh, no, we're covered in whale snot!" yells BonBon! Spot and the band of bros. laugh at them as they try to wipe off the stuff!
"That'll teach you to get too close to the whales! " says Spot.
Just then a whale comes up under Spot's kayak and dumps them into the water! The mama Whale says," it's not nice to laugh at the pretty girl birds! "
"Yes ma'am, we're sorry!" says Spot and the boys reply! He whispers to Panther," we better get out of here!"
"What an adventure! "says Panther." We could have been eaten by whales!"
Angel Girl laughs and says, "silly boys, whales don't eat birds!"
"Today we visit Cheticamp, Cape Breton, a famous Nova Scotia destination, known for it's whale sightings. The most frequent sightings are big Fin whales, dolphins, Minke whales, Humpback whales and Pilot whales. Seals and Puffins are observed on nearly every tour.
"hey look, spotted whales?" Puffin calls out, " look at the white spots"
"They are actually North Atlantic right whales which come here rarely with their calves for the summer from Florida and Georgia waters. Those white patches seen on the right whale's head are raised tissue that is actually dark in color called callosities. Whale lice or cyamids covering the callosities are what makes them appear white. " Sky explains
Little Peep and Rio stand tall to get abetter glimpse of the rare whales. Kiddo and Sweetpepper take photos of the whales as they surface close by. Pilot whales splash happily at the kayaking birdies, as they call in whale-enise to one another. " They're so cute" Kacey adds as she sketches a whale jumping out of the water on her art pad.
" These are so gentle yet so large" Mr Finnegan comments to Susan as they sit watching from their kayak.
" Until recently Whales were feared as being dangerous and aggressive, yet look, how gently they swim and play close to us." BB states as she snuggles with Sky to watch they giants of the ocean.
"Willie, did you get a good shot of that baby and her Momma?" Falco asks from across the group of kayaks bobbing softly in the calm waters.
"YEP! Mom's gonna love these pictures."
Reluctantly the group begins to paddle towards their next stop-over! Spot waves good-bye!

  Hi Dixie
Thanks for helping me celebrate BOTD! I was so surprised to see myself staring out on the main page. It was a great party in the castle, too, hope you were able to attend and get some of that great cake.
Sorry I didn't get here earlier. Mom just got back from the vet. The Doctor was actually pleased with the healing on Falco's leg, but the wound in her side was not there before. It hadn't bled that mom could see. When her leg got hurt, she bled all over the cage. This new wound might be from her picking at her side, we just don't know. Anyway, she is on oral antibiotics for 2 weeks, and they will go back for a follow up next week. Mom is also putting some aloe vera healing balm on the leg and side for now, as well. The gook news is that her gram stain was normal and she has gained 5 grams, bringing her weight back to where it should be.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of hugs. Here's one from me, too. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Dixie
So how is skin sis doing? Any time you are in the hospital is a bad time. Did she get to come home today? Maybe she should stay at your house for a couple of days, so your sweet mama can look after her. That would make me feel better, and I am sure it would work for her as well.

I got out for my sunbath at 9:25 today. It was supposed to be cooler today, but for some reason it heated up earlier today. Mom had to run inside and get the spritzer to spray me down after 15 minutes, because I was starting to pant. That sure felt good. Mom was too warm as well, even though she was sitting in shade, so we came in after 30 minutes. We would have gotten out earlier, but I had to play hard to get for 25 minutes.

Well, big cool down today! Yeah, instead of 104, it is only 98 degrees for our high. I suppose that is cooler, but since the humidity is higher it really doesn't feel like it.

Mom goes to the gym at 3 today, since somebody stole her usual 4 appt with the trainer. Since the gym is really well air conditioned, I don't think she will mind all that much. That is just about the hottest time of the day. The real cool down is supposed to come tomorrow with a drop down to mid 80s. Sure hope they got it right this time, since it was originally supposed to happen on Monday!

And don't forget! Today is the last day to enter for the Rodeo Queen contest. Looks like we have 10 entries now, so it should be a real contest. And voting starts tomorrow. Each bird in your flock gets one vote per day until midnight EDT on the 24th.

Happy hump day dear friends, and give my love to all in your home, see ya tomorrow...

  Hi Dixie
Finally, i got your package mailed. Mom had made up double bottles of aspirin for you since the parronts are going on the Parrot Cruise in November, so she doesn't want you without your medicine eggspecially if you need an eggstra dose or so. Yep, it is official, the parronts have to replace not only the wood stove but the chimney as well. With the way the power goes out and how cold it is, it is absolutely necessary! Dad did an analysis of last year oil bill and we spent over $3000 burning the stove nearly 18 hours/day. Do not want to imagine fuel oil without the stove going. So that pretty much kills it for mom and Parrot Palooza this year. yesterday began the ritual of bringing the plant indoors. Less time for us fids. Dad wasn't happy, either, so I told him to take a number! And today we are in lock down because mom is back at work and tomorrow the parronts have to pick out that wood stove which will cut in on more of our time! So that is all the news that is fit to print and for us to poop on so far! Mom will give you mom a visit tonight after work. Love and winghugs, Cookie

  Hi Dixie
It's Ginger.
Yesterday was free movie at the cheap theater so mom and dad spent the afternoon there. They saw "Lucy". That one was weird. It's about a girl that gets some kind of experimental drug and can use 100% of her brain. Dad said that he'd sure hate to run into her. Then they bought tickets and saw "Planes: Fire and Rescue". It was real cute. Then it was off to Lowe's for a new sprinkler head, Sam's Club for coffee, Target for Creamer and Jack In The Box for chicken sandwiches.
Today mom and dad have a meeting at the police station at 10am for the open house. Then they have some kind of deal going at Johnny Reb's BBQ place. If you eat there today and bring your receipt back in the next three weeks, they remake the meal for you for free. Hmmm, I know there's a catch in there somewhere.
Anyway, today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 98 and a low of 68. Right now, at 7am, it's 78 degrees.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Ginger

  Hi Dixie
Oh, so that's how you can reach the paper. Have fun shredding it.
Mom would like to replace the carpet in skinsis's room too. But it's not worth it. The cat and the chinchilla have made their messes and she has also left stains of makeup and markers etc. Funny thing, that was the most expensive carpet in the house.
It was a beautiful sunny day. It got up to 59 degrees at one point but it was chilly because of the wind. The sad part is the huge gathering of Canada geese in Walloon Lake. They were resting on the way down south. Mom was asking them not to go unless they take her with them. I hope I get to go too! Fly Away Home music begins ...........

  Sugar cleans up after their snack~
and props Dixie's legs up onto the Hello Kitty pillow. She massages his legs and asks how the rest of his day went! She tells him she knows everyone is worried about skin sister but she really is in good hands. Sugar just hopes she feels better and can get some good rest tonight. She hopes that she gets to come home tomorrow!

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 for Nana. They say some prayers for Shilo too and pray that she is all better very soon.
Sugar has her own special prayers just for Dixie. She feels blessed to have him in her life and thanks the Lord everyday for giving her such a wonderful friend!

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

  Sugar rushes down the hallway and sees
Dixie waiting for her! They waddle into the room and Sugar throws her wings around her friend! She holds him tightly and tells him how very happy she is to be here with him! She has been waiting all day to get over here!

"How are you tonight? We read about your skin sister and we are glad she is in good hands! She must have felt just awful and I know she really wants her mom with her. She'll sleep well tonight and will have all kinds of people watching over her. She'll have lots of prayers from us too so you don't worry about here! I just hope Aunt Rose can get a good nights sleep and not worry too much!! I'm here for you and I'll help out in anyway I can!"

The friends waddle over to the platform and snuggle close together. Sugar hands Dixie the Hello Kitty lunch box. He opens it up to find slices of pumpkin bread! He puts the pumpkin bread on napkins for them while Sugar pours them each a glass of banana smoothie.
They nibble on the bread and sip the smoothies while Sugar starts to read the book she has for them tonight.

"This is a cute story called "How to Babysit your Grandma". It is the story of a little girl who is staying with her grandma and has a list of things they can do together. She says that having a sleep over is the best way to babysit a grandma. She says that you must have all kinds of activities planned to keep her busy!!
Dixie and Sugar giggle when they see the list! Every other thing on the list is going to the park!Hehehehehehe
The little girl and the grandma go to the park! They play on the slides and then the little girl says that when you push your grandma on the swings, you must do it gently!!
The girl and her grandma go home and bake some cookies. They spend the afternoon playing games and reading books! After dinner the girl says it's time for bed! She says you must let your grandma sleep wherever she is comfortable! She says it is just fine if your grandma wants to sleep with you since it will make her feel safer! You must tell your grandma that you know she misses your parents but they will be here before she knows it!
In the morning the girl and her grandma dress like twins and have a great breakfast! They both greet the parents when they come home! Grandma says she has a great time and hopes the little girl will come to babysit again soon!"

Sugar and Dixie pick the toasted pumpkins seeds off the bread before they eat it. The banana smoothies taste great too. They both think it would be great if they could go over and babysit Nana one day! Trixie II could help!

HELLO MY DEAR SWEET LOVABLE FIBLINGS, DIXIE, KALLIE, PEEPERS AND CANDIDA,

OH YOUR POOR MOM DOING ALL THAT WORK ON THE FLOORS. MOM HAS ONE OF THOSE SWIFFER MOPS THAT YOU PUT THE DRY PAD ON TO DUST AND PICK UP DIRT THEN PUT ON THE SPECIAL WET PADS TO WASH THE FLOOR. THEN ONCE IN AWHILE SHE WILL USE THE SHARK STEAMER TO CLEAN THE FLOORS. MOM JUST CAN'T DO ALL THAT WORK IN A DAY AS IT KILLS HER BACK. VACUMING AND WASHING FLOORS IS BAD. THE CONDO ISN'T MESSY JUST DUSTY MOSTLY (THE FLOORS).

MOM GOT UP AT 7am TO HAVE HER CARNATION BREAKFAST DRINK AND HER CLIFF POWER BAR BEOFRE HEADING OFF TO THE GYM. SHE GOT 17 1/2 MINS DONE ON THE TREADMILL THEN WENT TO WORK OUT WITH HER TRAINER. THEN SHE GOT BACK ON THE TREADMILL FOR ANOTHER 18 1/2 MINS TO MAKE A TOTAL OF 36 MINS ON THE TREADMILL. MOM SAYS SHE WILL NEVER EVER MAKE ANOTHER EARLY MORNING APPT TO MEET WITH THE TRAINER ATTHE GYM. MOM WAS FALLING ASLEEP BY 12 NOON SHE WAS TIRED.

OUR DAY HERE WAS 66 DEGREES AND SUNNY. SO NOT TOO BAD. TOMORROW WILL BE THE SAME AS WILL THURSDAY. FRIDAY GETS UP INTO THE 70'S THEN SATURDAY INTO THE 80'S AND THEN BACK DOWN INTO THE 60'S FOR NEXT WEEK.

TOMORROW MOM TAKES G-PA FOR HIS HERNIA SURGERY. THEY HAVE TO BE AT THE HOSPITAL BY 9:30am BUT THE SURGERY ISN'T TILL 11;30am. MOM CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY THEY HAVE TO BE THERE 2 HOURS AHEAD OF TIME. IT MAKES FOR A REALLY LONG DAY. MOM'S SISTER TOOK THE DAY OFF OWRK TO COME BE WITH G-MA. SHE IS GOINGTO TAKE G-MA OUT TO LUNCH AND MAKE SURE SHE HAS SOMETHING TO EAT FOR DINNER TOO. MOM IS JUST HOPING THE DR WILL KEEP G-PA OVERNIGHT AS A PRECAUSTION. MOM KNOWS G-PA WILL BE IN TOO MUCH PAIN TO EAT OR EVEN DRINK ANYTHING AND IF HE STAYS IN THE HOSPITAL AT LEAST HE WILL STAY HYDRATED WITHTHE IV. PLEASE SAY A PRAYER THAT G-PA GETS TO STAY THE NIGHT.

AS FOR OUT TIME FROM OUR CAGES, KACEY AND I CAN BOTH BE OUT AT THE SAME TIME AS LONG AS I AM WITH MOM AND KACEY IS WITH G-MA. I CANNOT BE TRUSTED AROUND KACEY AS I WILL GO AFTER HER. IF THE PARRONTS ARE NOT HOME I DO APPRECIATE HER COMPANY IN THE LIVING ROOM. KACEY HAS HER DAYTIME CAGE IN THE LIVING ROOM AND HER NIGHTIME SLEEP CAGE IN G-MA'S BEDROOM. I ONLY HAVE ONE CAGE TO PLAY AND SLEEP IN.

HOPE YOU HAVE A HAPPY HUMPDAY

  Heya, Dixie!
Well, today was sunny, but still only got to 63 degrees. Mom was glad it wasn't raining today, cuz she went down to the lakefront and watched some sailboats on the water (boy, they sure must have had to be wearing some heavier clothes, cuz it sure was chilly there!). There were geese out on the lake, and of course a seagull or three flying overhead. And the neatest thing--a monarch butterfly was dancing in the wind in front of Mom, and it followed her as she walked back to the building. Made Mom smile, too! So pretty in the sunlight, and Mom has not seen many of them this year, so this was very special.

Sounds like your Mom got the floors done just the way she wanted them. And yeah, Mom remembers how it was when she was younger and living with Grandma and Grandpa--the minute the floors were done, and drying, someone would walk in and mess them up. Usually Mom. Glad they all were dry before your Dad came home.

Not much else going on. Mom got a later start in to work this morning (and it was not my fault! Even if she did give me head scritches a bit longer than she should have...) and she had to park on the 5th level of the structure. UGH! That was only partially covered, so it got to Mom. She hates heights, and that was enough to make her get her butt out of the house lots earlier. Kinda freaked her out to be up that high and seeing only the sky. Nope. No way! She definitely did not like it one bit.

Sending you and your Mom wing hugs and beaky kisses, cuz you know that yours make us smile, and feel loved.

XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO,
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Dixie
I am usually on good behavior too after I get into trouble or do something not nice. Oh doing them floors is hard work and mom does ours good once a week and then does a quick thru again thru the week. Mom hates moving the furniture around and this week it was the frig that got moved out but so did all the living room furniture did too so mom must of been on a roll LOL. Mom put the bird cutout pictures on the bottom of my gallery!! This is the one mom bought at the craft show last weekend ones were wanting to see. Today was too cold to go out and in fact the sun never came out much if at all. Yesterday the cows were all out across the road in the pasture when I was out for my sunbath. One of them mooed at me and I mooed back at him. I kept my eagle eye on them since they are usually way out in the field and not down this way when I am out for a sunbath. Some are really big though. “Sometimes people ask mom how she can be friends with people she has never met and mom tells them then you have never been on bird channel I bet. That about sums it up to my friend” ~~ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Day 16--Kayaking Adventures
Good morning everyone, Angel Girl here with today's post. The afternoon turned out perfect for kayaking along the coast line. We stop for lunch in a sheltered cove, where within minutes we are able to visit a nationally known Seabird nesting site. Here Terns, Gulls and other species nest noisily in the rocky cliffs and along the shoreline. As we enjoyed our lunch the sounds from the nesting birds was difficult to hear over.
"WOW, I can't believe how loud they are" Popeye yells to Chyna only inches away. The two girls laugh as neither can hear one another.
"Look" Cydney says pointing to a family of whales surfacing not far off shore. She snaps several pictures before joining Willie, Kaji, Lizzie and Cookie as they hike to the nesting grounds with the others. " Yuck!" she looks down, and sees she'd stepped in Sea Gull poop, " OH no, my new shoes!" she looks sadly at the mess. The others giggle
"Snowy!" Sky calls, come here buddy wanta show you something " a lobster" they look at the large clawed creature staring angrily back from a shallow pool of water among rocks. Let's help him back into the ocean." Sky says trying to pick the snapping Lobster." Snowy grabs a stick and lifts him up as he clamps down. " not such a nice fella are ya?" he laughs as Sky and him gently lower him into the surf.
"AHHHHHH, babies" Little Angel tells Dixie, " aren't they cute." they watch the fledglings trying to rise into the sky as clouds of white take off from the shore. " doesn't it make you just wanta have a baby to love too?" LA gets all dreamy eyed. "Maybe we can adopt a baby bird?" she smiles sweetly watching the youngsters.
Boo Boo and Cori take photos of the birds in flight, as Chipper and BonBon draw pictures in their sketchbooks. Spot and a few of the boys take off into the sky flying with the Seabirds, screaming happily with them.
"Ok, sorry everybirdie but we must move on. We have lots more to see" Angel Girl calls loudly, trying to be hear over the roar of bird voices. Reluctantly everyone says farewell to their new friends, as they head to the shore and get their kayak ready to move on. The whales continue to swim close to the shore as the group paddles off. Angel Girl shares a little history of Cape Breton as they quietly paddle along.

In 1784, Britain split the colony of Nova Scotia into three separate colonies: New Brunswick, Cape Breton Island, and present-day peninsular Nova Scotia, in addition to the adjacent colonies of St. John's Island (renamed Prince Edward Island in 1798) and Newfoundland. The colony of Cape Breton Island had its capital at Sydney on its namesake harbor fronting on Spanish Bay and the Cabot Strait. Its first Lieutenant-Governor was Joseph Frederick Wallet DesBarres (1784–1787) and his successor was William Macarmick (1787).

Large-scale shipbuilding began in the 1790s. Shipbuilding peaked in the 1850s, marked in 1851 by the full rigged ship Lord Clarendon, the largest ever built in Cape Breton.

  Hi Dixie
As far as Mom keeping off the 10 pounds, you have to remember she is still eating only one solid meal a day of rice and veggies (lunch), the other meals are still chicken stock and milk (breakfast) and half an Ensure (mid afternoon and dinner. She figures she will really have to watch it at 8 weeks when she can eat meat and bread again, but by then she will be back full time at zumba 4 or 5 times a week....hopefully.

Well, Mom wasn't fooling around one little bit this morning. We got outside for my sunbath at 8:30, and it was just the right temp. (That's because we have another scorcher of 104 for today.) However in order to get sunshine for me, my carrier was sitting in the sidewalk (the house blocks early morning sun). By the time we came in I was on the grass, but nobody walked by anyway. I would have ordered them off my sidewalk if they had.

Well, we are up to 8 entries for the Rodeo Queen, and I say that makes it a contest (more would be better though!). Every single one of these birdies is a beauty, and we will have the pics posted in the Milonga page gallery (165848) before voting starts on the 18th. You will then have one vote per bird per day until the 24th (midnight EDT). We now have 7 barrel racers and still only 5 mutton busters, so there is still room for both of those events. And if you want to enter for Rodeo Queen, you have until midnight EDT tomorrow to get your name and pic entered. And of course, don't forget the rodeo will be held on the 27th.

Thanks so much to your mom for Falco's pic! She loves it, you know. We just heard from Jill who is caught up in meetings all day. She told mom to take Falco to the center and see if Anna or Bree could help out. She thinks vet wrap will last longer than the gauze bandage the vet had applied, and that Falco had chewed off in a day. The healing balm may have healed the skin, but it did nothing for the bone, obviously. Anyway, she's off to see if they can help her.
Thanks so much for helping me to be BOTD! I'm so happy to have that honor. Love you always, my friend. Hugs, Pino

  Hi Dixie.
It's Ginger.
Another blistering hot day. Yesterday hit 99.9 degrees. That was a little cooler than the day before but when it gets that hot, who's counting. No outside work for dad. Well, not a lot of outside work. Before it got too hot he pulled weeds in the backyard and talked to our pest control guy about our ant invasion. Dad told him that the best thing he has used to kill them and keep them away is Windex.
Because it was too hot to work outside dad worked inside. He scrubbed the bathroom floors and the kitchen and laundry room floors. Mom said that they looked good. And....Dad kept his word! After he completely dismantled and cleaned our room dad turned the TV around and connected it. We got to watch bird videos all afternoon on our new big TV. Dad said not to get used to it because he may give it away. Give it away? Not as long as we have it. Just try and take it! Dad also switched places with our cage racks. Now we all have to get used to a "new view".
Today is going to be another "oven roasted" day. It will be clear, with a high of 102 and a low of 75. How come, when the weather guessers say it's going to rain, it never does, but when they say it going to be real hot, they're always right?
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Ginger.

  Hi Dixie
Trying to shove mom out the door now to mail your package! She needs to either lose more weight or I need a larger beak! Josh! Blue! Come here and help! I am getting my blog in quickly this morning because the parronts are gearing up for going out to breakfast and errands, so we will not be out of our cages until noon, boo hiss! I am pleased that my property value has increased with this new condo of Josh's. It is way higher than mine, but he needs it. Last night the parronts came in when mom arrived home after work and he just sat there and opened his wings fully as to say, "yup, now I have enough room!" Jalapeno sausage? Ooooooh, mom's mouth is watering .....you know how much she loves hot and spicy food! Well, this condo of Josh's has blown the budget for Parrot Palooza. Looks like mom isn't going, but your parronts and nana are still welcome to stay at our roost if it helps you in your travels to south Jersey. You are all welcome anytime! Another blow is the parronts were informed today that they will be springing for a new wood stove and chimney.
