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

22 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..

  Hey Dixie,
As they head back to the beach they see everyone making sand castles.

Come on yells Pookie let's do this! !

They get their buckets and shovels and quickly get to work on theirs.

Mom found out that there are a lot of applicant's for the same position but she figures she would throw her hat in the ring and see what happens. You never know what might happen, right?

The whole flock is paired in 2 to 4 birds in the making of the sand castles.

This is gonna be great says Pookie!

We send you all big big birdie hugs and cool beakin kisses and mom sends your mom a big Ole Hawaiian hug too.

We all keep you, the flock and kin folks in our prayers.

Love from the Sandy beach,

Your buffet buddy,

Pookie

Come visit me, Angel Sallykins says its beach time !!! :), Pookie says its time for the beach party !!! :) & Princess Laka says time for the beach party!! :).

  Heya, Dixie!
Sounds like you are having a greyt time!! I think having your trip to visit all our buddies in your area is just awesome!! We know you are enjoying the car ride, too.

We were up to 73 here, and it has been grey and damp to boot. The sun came out a bit this afternoon, and when Mom was coming home it was getting ready to set. It was a brilliant red, so we figure that is due to the forest fires out West. She so wanted to get a picture of it, but was driving and could not get to a spot where she had a good view of it to stop and snap one. It is dark now, too. Guess that means we have fall time coming. Supposed to heat up over the next week, so I am pretty sure I will get to the market. I know I will get to the vet for my nails and wings on Thursday. I think I need the nail trim, too--been chewing them and making them into little points. Did I tell you Mom is not impressed? Yeah.

Wing hugs coming your way, along with big beaky kisses for you and your Mom. Hope your Dad is doing greyt, too, and is not having any problems with driving. We miss you but know you are gonna have a whole lot to tell us when you get back!

  Hi Dixie
Glad you are having a fun safe trip and say hello to Charlie and the flock for me and the parronts too!
Today was more humid and warmer here today though we did have some rain during the night. I got another bath and sun bath too before it got too hot. Last night when mom was putting me to bed she showed me the moon out the window. It was so big but it wasn’t real white like it was before. This time it was more orange almost like the sun but not that bright. Mom thought maybe cause it was cloudy out. Mom finally set my light to go off a half hour earlier with the timer so that should be better for now. “Our paths may change as life goes on but the bond between friends remain ever strong.” Left a vote for you my friend~ hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Dixie
I just know you are having a greyt time visiting with all of our BC friends. So hello to everybirdy for me, especially my buddy Teal'c.

It continues to be too hot here, although it is only going up to 95 today which is an improvement. Dad told Mom a cool down is in the air, but she doesn't have his weather sense and can only hope he is right. (He smells it! What is that all about?) However he says another heat wave is right behind it, so just phooey! Mom tried very hard to get me out for a sunbath before they did the weekly grocery run, but I was less than interested. I did eat the cookie bait while they were gone though.

The month is almost over, and it looks very good for Cydney to be our next queen. However you still need to get over there and vote both today and tomorrow. No month end slacking off, now! And then it is open season for September. I am guessing one of our previous winners will garner the prize unless somebirdy decides to declare and campaign for the BOTM crown. Should be very interesting!

  Heya, Dixie!
Just stopping by to say that we hope you are having a wonderful trip with your Mom and Dad. Know that having the ride in the car is the best!! And hopefully your Mom will be able to rest up some, and doesn't get calls or texts from the Skins.

Mom is watching the Packers game...or rather the Packers getting injured. Cobb, Hyde and Bulaga are out with shoulder, neck and ankle injuries. It sucks. Brewers came from behind and led, now are losing. American Pharoah got beat. It is not a good day for sports.

Did not get to the farmers market either. Too chilly. Only 59, with rain and fog. Brr. Mom said I had to stay home cuz it was not warm enough. She was wearing a light jacket, so I guess she was right. Sigh.

Wing hugs coming your way, and beaky kisses to you and your Mom. Missing you!

Wow your doing lots of traveling and hope you have a safe trip and mom sure wants to see your mom too.Know your already on the road so keeping this a bit short.Another pretty day here in the burgh thought the humidity is creeping up. I got a bath and a sun bath today again too. My light above my condo is on a timer so it comes on in the morning and goes off in the evening when it is time for my night night. Well the days are getting shorter already so I am ready for bed before that light goes out. Let me tell you once it goes out I leave out a noise so mom knows too LOL. I mean if I didn’t tell her she would never notice I don’t think,,,what that woman would do without me is hard to even imagine!

  Hi Dixie
Well, you and Kallie are on the list of alternates, and we have already had one rider have to drop out. Polly can't be sure she will be able to attend the Milonga and being an honest birdy gave up Itsy. Kacey was first on the list, so she will get Itsy. However the next birdy who drops off or does not confirm in time will free up another piggy. I am so glad you got your name on the list before leaving for vacation. You and Kallie will all set if we have any more vacancies.

I had my sunbath early today. Mom got me outside at 9:30 by a very dirty trick. She stood over the carrier eating (and sharing) that pb cookie, and then made sure I saw her put a piece on the perch. I was standing on the edge of the carrier, and when I leaned over to check it out she bumped my bottom and in I went and closed went the lid! How rude. Of course, once we got outside I was good with it. And just in time too. Dad was watching the weather on TV at 10:30, and although they still showed a forecast high of 94, it was already 96 degrees! It only made it to 100 today, but any time it hits triple digits that is just too hot.

Good response already on the pig races, and that is very much appreciated. We already have a list begun of new potential riders, so there are plenty of alternates if some of our previous racers are unable to attend or ride.

Mom went to zumba today, and I have to say I just don't understand how she can come home, listen to me calling her, and still insist on a shower first. I admit it was a very quick shower and she did come into my room as soon as she was dressed, but still... Oh, and we had pizza for lunch. Our local store, Albertson's, has a store brand of pizza that is as good as most pizzerias. I liked it, although I have to say spinach has no place on a pizza. I finally have the proof; my mom is nuts!

My Dearest Little Dixie,
You must be so eggscited to be going on vacation with your parronts! My Mommy says that she would love to have a motor home so that she could take all of us on vacation and drive all over the country visiting our BC friends! Wouldn't that be fun? We are so happy for you to be able to visit some of your BC friends who live near you. Where are you all going? How long will you be gone? My skin sis leaves on Tues. and Mommy is also leaving either Tues. or Wed. for CO to visit another skin sis of mine. Daddy is staying home with all of us. Mommy really hates to leave to leave us. She hasn't been anywhere to visit anyone for two years. I hope you and your Mom and Dad have a safe and wonderful time. God bless you all. I love you so much and will be happy to hear all about your trip when you get home.
Lots of Love, Hugs and Kisses from Little Miss Lucy♥♥

We sure hope Nana and Shiloh are okay while the parronts are on a well deserved vacation.
This morning mom had a terrible time signing on to BC. It took at least a dozen tries from everywhere on the computer but we're here now!
We got a big surprise yesterday, thanks Uncle Chuck! Mom says they match the kitchen perfectly! And we love our new toys, too.
Well, Aunt Rose is on her way to meet us soon, and we know she's meeting lots of BC folks on the way here, too. It sounds like the ideal vacation to us.
It looks like a perfect summer day here, so we know where mom will be. At least for the afternoon, that is. Later on, she's ours. Tomorrow morning John comes to fix the wall for the backsplash and install the new floor. Mom told him to be here well before noon, so she can go to the pool, hahaha!
I hope you are having a great summer day with lots of good weather and cuddles, too. Hugs, Peppino

  Dixie and Sugar enjoy the treats and the smoothies! They both laugh when the dragons start to play soccer. They are a little rough on the ball and they keep burning the goal post down with their breathe!

Sugar cleans up after their snack and props Dixie's legs up onto the Hello Kitty pillow. She massages his legs and asks about his evening! She is very happy that he is packed and ready to go! She hope his parronts have their things ready too! Sugar asks if they are leaving on Saturday morning. She is praying that they all have such a wonderful time and a very safe trip. Sugar knows that they are all going to love it so much and she hopes they take lots of pictures!
Sugar is going to miss him so much but she wants him to have fun. She can not wait to hear all about it when he gets back!
Sugar knows that Anthony and Shiloh will take good care of Nana so Aunt Rose doesn't have to worry. Sugar wants her to go and relax and just enjoy the trip!

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 adds prayers for the entire family and flock. She has extra special ones just for Dixie. She loves him so very much and thanks the Lord everyday for bringing him into her life!

  Sugar waddles quietly through the house~
and tip toes down the hallway. She peeks around the corner and sees Dixie waiting by the bird room door for her! She waddles in with a smile on her beak and throws her wings around Dixie. She gives him a gentle hug and tells him how very happy she is to be hear tonight!

"How are you tonight? I hope you had a great day! I'm glad you got to spend some time with Nana and Trixie before you leave on vacation. I take it you are going to leave tomorrow??? I know you are all going to have such a good time and you will all be together and seeing lots of fun things!"

The friends waddle over to the platform and snuggle close together. They snuggle close together while Sugar hands Dixie the Hello Kitty lunch box. He opens it up and finds rice krispie treats inside. He places the treats on napkins for them while Sugar pours them each a glass of orange mango smoothie! They sip on the smoothies and nibble on the treats while Sugar starts to read.

"This story is called "Guess What I Found In Dragonwood?" A little dragon is wandering through the forest and finds a Benjamin! He has never seen a Benjamin before and only thought the existed in stories!
He takes Benjamin home with him to meet the family. Dragons mom makes Benjamin a lovely bowl of grass with bugs but Benjamin doesn't seem to be hungry. Dragon asks if Benjamin can sleep in his room with him and his mom says yes! Dragon and Benjamin go to sleep.
In the morning Dragon takes Benjamin to school with him. They are going to learn how to sit on volcano's today so he bets Benjamin will love it! Well, when the teacher sees Benjamin she decides they should learn all about him! Benjamin tells them all about his city and his family! The dragons all find this hard to believe because they were always told that people were just fairy tales! Benjamin teaches them how to play soccer and they love it!
Benjamin misses his family and home so Dragon decides it's time to take him back. He asks his friends if they would like to go, but they are all too afraid! Dragon takes Benjamin home and says goodbye. When he comes home every dragon asks him if he would go back to Benjamin's home. Dragon says of course he will. They had boxes that lit up and whirly things in the sky. It was all very interesting but for right now, Dragon is going to practice soccer!"

  Heya, Dixie!
Well, it sounds like your Mom was able to do stuff that she needed to do for your trip, so we are gonna wish you all safe travels! I think you are gonna have so much fun on the trip, too, and get to meet other birdies and their Mom's!!! We know that you are going to have a lot to tell us, and that is gonna be the best to hear about every birdie!!!

Mom went over by Kim today and brought lunch over for her (Pad Thai) and they had a nice visit. Kim's knee is still sore, and she was not feeling too good. Mom came home after--she was going to go to the store but she decided not to when it started to rain a little. She says she can go to the store anytime now. And she brought me some Pad Thai and rice back--makes a guy happy! Love that stuff!

Wing hugs and beaky kisses coming your way! Get some good sleep tonight and we sure hope your Mom is able to sleep and not worry about anything! We love ya, and will miss you but will be waiting to hear all about your travels!!!!!

XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO,
Your buddy,
Kaji

  HI DIXIE & FLOCK!!!!!
Yep, those place are sure great to shop at....Pecked a V4U...Today for my campaign blog I will be talking about the Casino Theatre and Village Malt Shoppe Mt.Pocono,Pa..It was originally a one story 1922 Casino building used as a dance hall & night club which was converted to a movie theatre after being purchased by a woman from Stroudsburg...Then it was sold in 1974 to three couples one by the name of Mr.& Mrs. George Litz..The families renovated & modernized the vintage structure opening the business 4/4/1975..Less than a year after the grand opening the structure burned to the ground..The new building opened 4 months later 7/1976.A new single screen movie theatre & new ice cream parlor.The new building was built with a slanted floor allowing a modern movie-going experience instead of the neck-craning involved when watching a film from a flat floor..Within a few years the Litzes bought out their partners and began expanding the operation.Today after more than 30 yrs.the Litz Family still own and operate the Casino which is in its second generation. The Casino is now a 2 screen movie house & ice cream shop. It shows first run movies plus still features an old fashioned soda fountain with many flavors of ice cream as well. Plus the Movie Theatre & Malt Shop they added a Sandwich Restaurant, Children's Arcade, Miniature Golf Operation and a Gift Shop with the 1950's theme of decor featuring nostalgia & retro items were added with items featuring Betty Boop, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, I Love Lucy & other Icons of the 1950's...Well my friends I do hope this might also be something you would like to see while visiting in the Poconos...Have a nice Friday...Thank you all again for voting for me everyday...I certainly do appreciate it...Many wing hugs....CYDNEY :o)

  Hi Dixie
Thanks for liking my new picture. No, mom always cracks the nuts a bit for me though some almonds I can open but takes me days but never the walnuts so mom always cracks them. Mom has flipped the mattress herself but her back was bothering her so she got dad to help the other day..no use making it worse. Beautiful day here and I got a bath and a sunbath both. I saw a big bird in the sky but mom said it was a helicopter. LOL. There is a window above my play gym that sits right beside my condo. Mom has the window sill all cleaned off just for me …well it might be because of me LOL. I like to get up there in the morning when the sun is shining in after I eat my breakfast. I leave out little noises as I watch the wild birds and just to see the pretty day. Once the sun isn’t as bright I usually get on my play gym and begin the day with mom then helping her. “Our paths may change as life goes on but the bond between friends remain ever strong.” Left a vote for you my friend~ hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Come visit me, Gus~Did somebirdy mention "nut"??? & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  Hi Dixie
We are way too hot here, but at least the humidity is only moderate. Not as muggy as it was a few days ago, but then at 104 the humidity would just boil, right?

Mom's arthritis massage really did help. At the end of her training on Wednesday Mom had Becky work her left shoulder, and then Mattea, her massage therapist, stretched it out on Thursday. Mom said when she started if felt like a big rubber band in her upper arm was being stretched to the limit, but when Mattea got done it was back to normal! So much better.

And then today Mom got a parking spot in the shade at the gym!! She went in and told Becky she got a shady parking spot with a happy smile on her face, and Becky got all confused because she thought Mom said a shi**y [arking space, and she didn't understand why that would make Mom happy. They had a good laugh over that. And then Mom finally got to have zumba with Daniela. They had a big hug before class, and Daniela said how much she had missed her last week. It was a wonderful class.

No sunbath today, and you will hear no complaints from either me or my mom. It is 104 out there right now, and since that is what it ended up being yesterday as well I guess we were darned lucky I got outside at all on Thursday. Mom leaves for the gym at 9:30 on Fridays, so if it is a hot one we stay inside. I still got a nutriberry in my Barrel o' Fun though.

If you stop by the Calendar Page or the Milonga Page today, you will see the announcement about next month's milonga. The County Fair is coming back!! The highlight of the fair is the pig races, of course. If you have ridden before and want to ride your pig again, get on over to the Milonga page #165848 and sign up. If you miss the 9/3 deadline to re-sign, your pig will be up for grabs on 9/4 when we start accepting new riders for any pigs that become available. And PLEASE only sign up if you really want to participate and plan to be at the Fair.

You may have noticed that we have nobirdy signed up to run for BOTM in September for the October crown. This means it is wide open, even to previous winners if it has been a year or more since they wore the crown. So if you have always had a hankering to be BOTM and were just to shy to get yourself nominated, this is your big chance! Can't wait to see who comes out on top!

  Hi Dixie
Today mom cleaned the avian nursery at the center. There were the usual suspects in there, pigeons, mourning doves, robins, sparrows, etc., but there were also some cool different birds; a couple of mockingbirds, a killdeer, a catbird, and a crow. It was a busy morning, and when she got home, it was warm enough to go to the pool, so that's where she spent the afternoon. Now she's ours for the rest of the day, YAY!
Still no word about the counter tops, and mom is really getting frustrated. She so hoped it would be done by now. John is coming to put the floor in and get the wall ready for the backsplash on Sunday, so that's some progress at least.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of good weather and cuddles. Hugs, Peppino

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.

Your mommy is not alone on those blog issues. My mommy has the exact same problems. It's so annoying and don't even try to edit.It does not always work!

Happy TGIF!!!
Only Raffi got the answer right... Due to the confusion I have caused or the lack of memory heehee ! Sorry about that.

As I have told you long ago that all tribes including my tribe has different clans and society.I am in the Elk horn scraper the mans clan.Congrats Raffi on your first place win you aced this one!
Raffi gets first pick on his favorite jewlery.I am giving you all a chance to win the other pieces of jewlery.

Heres the Question ...

In the story of courtship what did the Thunder Bird spirit do to rescue Raffi from the jaws of the Lake monster?

Get your memory going like I always say to my mommy.The first seven birds who get the right answer will win some jewlery...
I will announce the winners tomorrow...

Much love to you all

  Hi Dixie
It's Ginger.
Phooy! We're having another hot, humid day. Yesterday and the day before were both "Save Power" days so mom and dad left the house for the afternoon. Yesterday they went to visit Ron. He's doing great and will be in the rehab center for about another month.
We got some fresh, sweet, juicy watermelon. Wow, is it ever yummy. Dad bought a small, seedless, mini-watermelon and boy, it's just right. We can hardly wait for treat time today.
Today will be clear and hot, with a high of 100 and a low of 70.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Ginger.

  Hi Dixie
TGIF! Got your bags packed? (or pecked?) hehehheheh! The Hotel Conurefornia has wifi, yes, so tell dad to bring his tablet and maybe he can work with the parronts to help them understand theirs as well. Mom uses the wifi for her laptap where she can sit much more comfortable than at the pc desk. The Hotel Conurefornia boasts a beautiful rural and forest location with greyt views of the wonderful outdoors! We offer a full menu of healthy(and not so healthy meals for the daddybirds!)Yeah, always some good old fashion junk food around for the guys! A full library of reading material, local field guides and a diverse selection of movies (your room does not have cable or movie channels, so help yourself to our video library or join us in the family room for cable and movie viewing) You will roost in your private suite with it's very own bird bath along with feeder (kitchen) privileges. Feel free to help yourself since mom gets home from work after 6ppm most nights (but will try to wrap it up earlier when you guys are here) in order to sit down and have some family dinners in the dining room (which is located right next to our room where we can watch you and squawk at you). You may also lounge on the deck/patio (which is also off our room where we will watch you like hawks, I will dance for you and Uncle Richie and we will all squawk at you!)We do not have a pool, but Joshua and Blue can always open up the spa and there is swimming at the Swartswood State Park and Stokes State Forest. There will be a Cage Owners Association social on Sunday, depending upon how many parronts can find the time to come up and meet and greet with you later in the afternoon, Mom will call Aunt Janet and Uncle Bill in Dingman's Ferry and Aunt Mary in NY. Chipper's mom is also welcome to stop by and since this is all last minute, we hope as many parronts can srop by who live within driving distance. You all have our contact info from the BC Directory, so call mom's cell(973-903-2991) if you need directions or to confirm. So finish packing those bags, fill the water bottles and safe travels! We are all soooo eggcited! Love, Kookie

  Feisty Flitzer Friday
Thanks, Dixie, my friend - for helping me make my Bird-of-the-Day Celebration a wonderful day.

Dad, Uncle Geno and i had a fun day full of laughter and feisty fun.
--
Dad n Uncle Geno went to a special showing of Jean-Luc Goddard's "CONTEMPT" from 1963.
Dad enjoyed the visual style, but neither of them liked the film very much.
Guess you can't like 'em all.

Be good to your humans and have a wonderful day.

  Hey Dixie,
Mom has decided to just call in sick the night before that way they can't ask her questions.

It's safer than lying and mom wouldn't want to get caught for lying.

It will be Tuesday at 9 am so let's wish her some birdie luck okay?

Okay says Dixie and flock.

Now let's get back to the beach party after we drop off these fish is at the house. Right oh says Dixie.

I can't wait to get my feet in the warm sand again. :)

Here's a vote for you my buffet buddy!

Love and hugs,

Your buffet buddy Pookie

Come visit me, Angel Sallykins says its beach time !!! :), Pookie says its time for the beach party !!! :) & Princess Laka says time for the beach party!! :).
