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..

  Hi Dixie
make sure when nana is sitting she is using a chair that is very supportive of her bum and back. it does help. make sure she is still doing her exercises also even if it does hurt, it will hurt less and less the more she does them.

Even with all the rain we have had it has now become so dry from all the heat that mom has been out watering some of the shrubs that are wilting and thirsty.

love Boo Boo

HI MY WONDERFUL FIBLINGS. WOW WITH SKIN SIS CAR BEING 11 YRS OLD AND IT GOING TO COST CLOSE TO $4,000 TO FIX IT, YOUR WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THE INSURANCE COMPANY WOULD TOTAL IT. THE CAR SHOULD ONLY BE WORTH MAYBE $5,000 IF IN GREAT CONDITION.

I THINK AUNT ROSE SHOULD GO AND GET A 24" BIKE. THE BIKES THEY ARE MAKING NOW FIT BETTER EVEN IF THEY ARE 26" BIKES. YOU COULD GO TO WAL MART AND GET A SHORTER BIKE. AUNT ROSE CAN SIT ON A 24" ONE TO SEE IF IT WOULD WORK AS THE NEXT SIZE DOWN IS A 20" BIKE AND THATS MORE FOR KIDS. AS FOR A 3-SPEED, NOT SURE IF THEY STILL MAKE THOSE. MOST BIKES ARE LIKE 21 SPEEDS. MOM HAS A MOUNTAIN BIKE, IT HAS THE FAT TIRES WITH GOOD TREAD ON IT. MOM DOESN'T EVEN USE ALL THE SPEEDS ON HER BIKE, SHE HAS GONE AS HIGH AS THE 10TH SPEED BUT MOSTLY KEEPS IT IN 7TH SPEED.

WELL G-PA'S POST OP EYE APPT WENT WELL. THEY RECHECKED THE PRESSURE IN G-PA'S LEFT EYE AND IT WENT FOR 25 DOWN TO 10 SO DON'T HAVE TO USE THE OTHER DROPS GIVEN TO HIM ON SATURDAY. WE JUST USE THE DROPS CALLED LOTEMAX IN THE LEFT EYE TWICE A DAY TILL SUNDAY. THE PRESSURE IN THE RIGHT EYE WAS 14 SO THAT IS GOOD. HIS NEXT POST OP APPT WILL BE AUG 4TH.

MOM DIDN'T HAVE TO TAKE G-MA FOR HER ERRANDS THIS MORNING AS MOM WASN'T FEELING WELL. WHEN SHE GOT UP AT 9AM TO DO G-PA'S DROPS IN HIS EYES, SHE WAS VERY NAUSEOUS AND ALMOST THREW-UP. WELL SHE GOT OVER THAT. SHE DID G-PA'S EYES THEN WENT TO LAY DOWN FOR AN HOUR AND HALF. WHEN SHE GOT UP THAT TIME THE NAUSEA HIT HER AND THIS TIME SHE DID THRO-UP. IT WAS MOSTLY WATER AS SHE HAS A GLASS OF WATER ON HER SHELF TO DRINK AS IT GETS VERY DRY HERE. SO MOM JUST HAD TO WAIT OUT THE NAUSEA AFTERWARDS. IT FINALLY WENT AWAY BY THE TIME MOM TOOK G-PA FOR HIS DR APPT AND SHE WAS FINE FOR GOING TO TAKE CARE OF THE KITTIES. MOM DOESN'T KNOW WHY THAT HAPPENED BUT IT HAS BEFORE AND WITHOUT WARNING.

MOM WAS VERY TIRED TONIGHT SO SHE SLEPT A COUPLE HOURS BEFORE DOING OUR BLOGS. MOM IS NOT A MORNING PERSON.

IT GOT UP TO 97 DEGREES HERE TODAY AND IT WAS HUMID. THEY SAY IT WILL BE HOT AND HUMID TOMORROW TOO. MOM IS DONE WITH KITTY KARE FOR NOW. THEIR MOM SHOULD BE HOME BY NOW. MOM WILL SEE THEM LATER THIS WEEK WHEN SHE TAKES THE KEYS BACK.

I DO HOPE THAT ALL OF YOU ARE STAYING INSIDE WHERE ITS COOLER. THIS HEAT AND HUMIDITY ARE NOT GOOD FOR ANYONE.

PRAYERS FOR ALL TO BE HEALTHY AND HAPPY AND PAINFREE.

I sure hope that your skinbro has better luck soon. He needs to have a good place to call his own. Those aren't good friends that do that to him!!!
Oh, I wish our moms could have met ... maybe in October 2016 at Parrot Palooza???
Have you tried those small white cages ... they go on sale every once in a while. I think they sell at Foster & Smith and Great Companions.
Oh yes, I would call animal control on those bird killing cats! Let the owners pay some fines!!!
We got up to a sunny 95 degrees today! Still no time for the beach. Mom says when all the house stuff is done, we will relax. I'm looking forward to that! I'm so busy supervising, it's a tough job!
Hugs

  Dixie and Sugar love the cookies and the smoothies. They both think it's great to spend a day playing with dad! They both giggle each time Little Squirrel gets stuck!

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 day! She hopes that he got to stay home and just hang out with his mom!
Sugar tells Dixie that mom and Ian went to get Ian some shoes and the store was having a buy one get one half off sale. Mom found a pair of sneakers on clearance and got them for half off when Ian bought his shoes. They are a bit bright but mom needed something with more cushion in them. Her Converse are too flat to be wearing when she has to be on her feet all night.
They did more of the dresser drawers today and should be able to finish tomorrow. Sugar admits to Dixie that she got bored and wanted to play. Mom told her it was fine since the stuff isn't going anywhere and they could finish tomorrow.
Mom and Sugar both hope that Nana calls the doctor and lets him know she still has some pain. It is important that he knows that and he may have some suggestions to help. Sugar understands that Nana likes to take care of herself.

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 some for the whole family and some very special ones just for Dixie. She loves him so very, very much and thanks the Lord everyday for bringing him into her life!

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

  Sugar waddles quietly through the house~
and tip toes down the hallway. She stops at the corner and peeks around. There is Dixie waiting by the bird room door for her! With a big smile on her beak, she waddles into the bird room. She throws her wings around Dixie and gives him a gentle hug! She tells him how very happy she is to be here with him at last!!

"How are you tonight? I hope the day was just wonderful. I had a pretty good day just hanging out with mom. Mom was only gone for a little while and the rest of the time they were together. They even watched a movie together tonight and had some snacks!"

The friends waddle over to the platform and snuggle close together. Sugar hands Dixie the Hello Kitty lunch box. He opens it up and sees peanut butter cookies. He places the cookies on napkins for them while Sugar pours them each a glass of strawberry smoothie. They nibble on the cookies and sip the smoothies while Sugar starts to read the story she has for them tonight!

"This story is called "I Love My Daddy". Little Squirrel goes outside to play with his daddy. His daddy asks him what they should play. Little Squirrel tells him they should dig! Little Squirrel starts to dig and dig! Suddenly he gets stuck in the hole! Hid daddy pulls him out and gives him a soothing hug!
Next little Squirrel wants to show his daddy waht a great climber he is! He climbs higher and higher in the tree but then gets stuck! His daddy climbs up and helps him down and gives him a soothing hug!
He asks Little Squirrel what they should play next! He tells his dad that they should jump! He is a very good jumper! Little Squirrel jumps and jumps and jumps! Unfortunately, he jumps right into a mud puddle and gets stuck! His daddy pulls him out and gives him a soothing hug!
Little Squirrel is very sad. He tells his daddy he doesn't want to play anymore because he keeps getting stuck! Daddy tells him they will play together! Little Squirrel climbs on Daddy's back and they run through the forest! They climb all the way to the top of the tree and then jump and jump! Daddy jumps right into the mud puddle! Now he is stuck!! Little Squirrel helps daddy out of the mud and gives him a big hug! He giggles as they clean up by the river! Daddy got stuck too! Daddy tells Little Squirrel that he did a great job pulling daddy out of the mud!
As they head home, Little Squirrel tells daddy what a fun day he had! I love my daddy shouts Little Squirrel! Daddy tells Little Squirrel he loves him too!"

  Heya, Dixie!
We are right up there with you in temps and dew points. Mom was sweaty just sitting here. The a/c went on, of course. She did her Pilates stuff this morning and was really sweating up a storm. She and I took a shower after that, and I sure love getting my feet wet. She doesn't run the water over me, so that is fine. I prefer my bath. But I love to try to steal water that she is spraying on her.

Sheesh, that insurance company is taking its time. Hope they have a place that will fix her car and in case there is more wrong than they thought, they will cover it. When the lady hit Mom's bumper, Mom just took it to the place and they billed the insurance company directly--the repair place was recommended by the gal's insurance company, and they did good work.

Lion was sighted last night (poor lady screamed when it looked at her) and again today, twice. It has moved a bit further north and east. Near where Mom goes to the dentist, actually. Right along the river, so it was probably looking for something to eat. Now they are talking about bringing in some lion finding dogs (in WI? Where did those come from?) and are using drones and aerial searches to see if they can find it--visual and one of those heat display search things. Hope the lion and the cub stay safe. The Animal Control place is setting traps for the lion. If they can catch it, then it will go to a sanctuary in Colorado (we think) where it can live. They figure it is a pet that is lost, and has no idea what to do. We hope that there is no cub, if that is the case, as if they trap the lion, the cub would likely not be with it. And that might be why it is staying put. Guess we will find out. Stay tuned for the next installment of the MKE Lion.

Other than that, a quiet day. We love quiet days. Sending wing hugs to your Mom and you, and beaky kisses too! Sending good thoughts and prayers for the rest of your flockily!

  Hi Dixie
Moms no busy days never work out for her either and they usually end up busier then her busy days LOL. So skin brother fist name is Shony? That is such a pretty name too! It was a bit hard to see on the blog but thought that was it. Today was another hot and humid day here so needless to say there was no sunbath again for me today. Tomorrow sounds about the same but could be a bit worse then today even was. When mom went to the bird show earlier this month she bought this Parrot Pockets for me. She put nuts in it and I sure do have to work for my treats out of that pocket too. Mom thought it would just be something else she bought that I wouldn’t use but sure was wrong on that! If your interested and want to learn about it you can go to www.parrotpockets.com and the ladies name is Debbie Goodrich. There are different sizes available and mom bought me the medium one that is 5x8“. “No matter how busy life gets. Wildflowers will still spring up in the middle of no where”. Hugs~~Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Dixie
Mom and I had so much stuff to tell you yesterday, that she totally forgot to tell your mom the story about me and the heating grate. It is above the door in my room, and I love to hang from it. However about a year after I came here, I got my foot caught in the grate, and even though Mom climbed up on a chair to get me loose it took a long time and she was so afraid she would break my leg. We went to the vet and they x-rayed just to be sure, but it was only scraped and they gave her some ointment to put on it. Meanwhile Dad had the inspiration to take some chicken wire and cut it to the size of the grate and cover it up. He just screwed it right on there, and now I hang on it all the time but cannot get my feet caught at all! I bet your mom or dad could do something like that with the thing that Bella is getting caught in.

Well, I didn't get a sunbath once again. Mom tried from 9 till 10:15 to get me to climb into the carrier or at least let her hold me so she could put me in, and she just got a bite on her thumb for her trouble. Funny thing is she didn't even get mad or give me a time out. I think she is giving up, and then after she got home from the gym she was getting me a treat and tripped over my box of toys and landed palm down on my wicker toy basket. Now I have chewed that basket thoroughly and it has sharp pointy things sticking up that ended up embedded in Mom's palm. She didn't blame me for that either. I am wondering who this woman is, and what did she do with my mom?

Mom went to the store on the way home from the gym and stocked up on all our favorite lunches: Methi Malai, Butternut Squash ravioli and Lemongrass Chicken. Then after she put it away, she opened the fridge side to get a glass of sun tea to make her chai latte. Last night she made up a new batch which is out in the sun, and put the left over into a tall glass and a jug that has a lid. Well, Dad apparently shoved the margarine tub into the glass of tea and it spilled all over the new fridge. Mom spent about 10 minutes and 1/3 of a roll of paper towels cleaning it all up. She will let Dad know, but she won't yell at him. It is so unusual to get to say "you did it!" to Dad, she will just enjoy being smug.

Mom got a message from Aunt Staci, and apparently the surgery went much better this time. (Well, it couldn't have gone any worse!) They used a different anesthesia which worked better, and the surgeon actually knew what he was doing! Rotator cuff surgery is still pretty rough, and my mom was a year fully recovering from hers even though everything went perfectly. Her surgeon told her that was standard for that operation! Mom is going to call her back as soon as we are done blogging. Meanwhile how about that blog from Panther's skin sis? Pretty interesting stuff!

  Hey Dixie
Happy Tuesday !!!

The puter is fixed for now and my skin sis will be typing my blogs for me as I dictate to her while I'm sitting on my mommys shoulder preening my mommy's hair.

Thank you all for sending your heart felt prayers and get well wishes to my mommy. The surgery went well and was way better than her last surgery. Now she's resting her shoulder and making the skin sibs do everything.Heehee !!!

My blogs will be short and they will get to the point. I'm trying to squeeze in as much as I can for my campaine and for you...

Today I'm taking you to a very touchy subject. Something most hoomans don't like to think or talk about but it's real and part of our circle of life...

Traditionl Northern Cheyenne Burials.

In my tribe the color white is the color of death. We use white when our loved ones go to the other side.
Burial clothes are made with soft white doe hide and the moccasins are baby soft.
The reason for this is when we all go to the other side we walk into the light where its all white and bright.When we arrive in the consel of elders with MAH-HEY-YOH we arrive being born again. Thats the reason why we use soft buckhide as soft as a baby's skin.

Black is the color of power and red is the color of life that runs through our veins.

When a tribal member or loved one goes to the other side we bathe them for their journey and bless them. We mourn for four days and nights, Some of us may cut ourselfs to ease the pain of the loss and some of us cut our hair to ease the pain of our loss. In my tribe long hair is an honor to have especially with the men.

After four day's and nights of mounrning we bury our departed one sitting up so when they arrive in the counsel of elders they will be sitting in the sacred circle with them. Mah-Hey-Yoh will then judge the our departed who has moved on to the other side.

Our tribal medicine man and holy man will then pray for four day's and nights. After they recieve thier answer they will tell us which consel or departed ones will go into.All of our departed will forever be happy and not suffer. We will then have a celebration with lots of food for them.

This is part of my world that not too many people outside of my tribe know about...
I'm sharing this with you.
Remember death is part of life in our circle. Be good,Do good and never lie or hurt or harm anyone. Always listen to our creator and obey his words to us. If you listen closely will hear a soft gentle loving voice whispering in your ear. You will know it's the creator. And also always remember in time of war when we are forced to kill we will be held in high honor here in this world and up in the stars where we all will be. There's never an end to life.
There's always a new beginning...

Thank you for your votes
Love Panther

PS...Hang around for more blogs !!!

Come visit me, Jedi luvs Cheyenne forever...Thanks for botd...., Snowflake luvs her Apache..., Tweety luvs Princess... & PANTHER...VOTE FOR ME FOR BOTM !!!.

  Hi Dixie
Triptiks ought to be accurate, or mom could use MapQuest on the computer and print that out, too. Mom can't wait! Sure wish Nana could come, mom would love to meet her too. Mom is sure Jinky and Carol will want to do something with everyone, so she'll call them when we have firm dates to make sure they can be available on the same day.
Sure hope Shiloh gets to the insurance company and finds out something. Paul should be working on her car, though, and have it done soon.
We are in a streak of good weather here. It's gonna be another bright sunshiny day, so mom will be heading out at noon for a few hours at the pool. Everything will need watered soon if it doesn't rain, though. This is going to present a problem, since the hookup for the hose is in the garage with the new cabinets. Mom doesn't want to have any water in the garage until the cabinets are out of there. She can't do laundry until they are moved, either, since the dryer vents into the garage.
The other day mom won a little basket at the pool fundraiser. She thought at first glance that it was tea, but when she opened it yesterday, there was pasta, sauce, some candies, a gift card, and one box of tea. The good thing is that it's English Breakfast tea, which mom likes. She is starting to pick tomatoes from the planters, too! We got some Siberian ones and a couple of indigo blues yesterday. Mom put pesto on them for a little salad, and they were delicious.
I hope you are having a great day today and getting lots of love. Hugs, Peppino

That sounds like some very uncomfortable weather. Was there ever any MODERATE weather for you, even just a week? Mom says she had a good stretch of what she considers comfortable weather. We now finally have the warm summer stuff.
How is Candida doing with the Pizza cardboard, is it working? Mom gets nervous when we start doing that with paper, she thinks we are getting ready to have eggs. Usually, tho', I just get my calculator paper to make lace and spit balls. That is just my job.

It's Ginger.
Dad finally got the front yards mowed. It took him about 4 hours to finish but it does look good. Dad was really tired when he finished but a hot shower helped.
Today dad has to go to the Magnolia bird farm for our food and supplies. Also, he and mom may work at the police department.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 90 and a low of 65.
Hope your day was fun.

Good morning buddy! Oh, so your mom doesnt want to leave Nana for very long. Is Nana doing alright? So she usually goes along with your parronts on vacation?

Candida is NOT a bad bird ... she is doing exactly what she is supposed to be doing!!! Have your mom try cash register tape for a chew toy or better yet soft toilet paper or even just wad some paper to layer onto her grate for her to continue to chew. You might even try a toy box with waded paper .... keep try to add things for her to chew besides her grate liner paper! Mom gives us toy boxes, toilet paper, cash register tape, lots of toys and lots of waded up paper with things hidden inside! Good luck. Oh and I bet you would like that too! Have a great day. Hugs.

The strap now seems to be irritating moms skin ... poor mom its always something. Mom is going to try some lotion and maybe some anti-itch cream ... It is still helping with the pain level though so mom doesn't want to stop wearing it. Hope you are doing well we also worry about you. Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.

I sure hope your skinbro can get a better place closer. My skinsis always thought her friends would be good roomies and they weren't! She really learned her lession. That wasn't a good friend that did that to your skinbro!!!
I hope your vacation plans go well for all of you. That would be greyt to visit PA & NJ and meet all the birdies. If you go in Oct (8,9,10) you can see a lot of them at Parrot Palooza. My mom will go again in 2016.
I travel in my Wingabago. I have sat in it for 16 hours the first day of going to FL. It was a loooooog day for me and mom. She told dad no more that was too much. Mom said I did so very well but looked like I had circles under my eyes. It was better coming home. But, this time we will be going to our new home.
I think I would tell those cat parronts about their cats! If you don't know them, catch the cats and turn them into the shelter. Then they will have to come and collect them ... maybe have to pay too.
We had another lovely summer day. I can get used to this .... and I will soon.

  Dixie and Sugar love the turnovers and the cold juice! They both know what the secret of sleep is! Dixie points out that they didn't include it being dark. Sugar agrees that to sleep well it has to be dark!

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 day!
She tells him she is thrilled that Anthony is in his apartment. She and mom both hope he is very happy there! He must be so proud of himself for all the work he has put in to get there! He should be proud!! He didn't give up!
Sugar asks if Aunt Rose is sleeping better now. It take some time for you body to quiet down once you been through such a stressful event!
Sugar wants to know how Nana is doing too. Is she still having pain? Sugar sure hopes that she is okay and taking some time everyday to relax and do something she enjoys!
Sugar tells Dixie that tomorrow after mom gets a nap they are going to finish cleaning out mom's dresser. Dad seem to have bought more socks and decided he didn't like them so mom is going to take them to the Goodwill. Dad buys too many socks! He has lots of stuff shoved in his drawers and some of it is just old ripped up t shirts! Mom and Sugar will finish that off tomorrow! Sugar likes to see what is in the drawers!

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. They add more for the whole family!

"How are you tonight? I hope the day was wonderful. Mine was good and it was still cool here so it felt wonderful. Suppose to get warm again for the next few days. It's been too warm this summer and the water got warm and it's killing the salmon. Who knew that just 6 degrees could harm them? They have stopped fishing 3 months early and are pouring cold water in the river to try to help them. It's very sad."

The friends waddle over to the platform and snuggle close together. Sugar hands Dixie the Hello Kitty lunch box. He opens it up and finds apple turnovers inside. He places the turnovers on napkins for them while Sugar pours them each a glass of cold apple juice. They nibble on the turnover and sip the juice while Sugar starts to read!

He waddles down to the river and tries to sleep in a boat but he just can't get to sleep! The moon tells Little Chick to come with him and he will show him the secret of sleep.
Little Chick goes Monkey Island and finds a little monkey playing in the tree. Little Chick asks him how to get to sleep but the monkey does not know. They play and run around the island until the monkey is so tired, he is ready to sleep! Being tired is the first part of getting to sleep. The monkey and Little Chick sail off to the Island of Fire. They meet a little dragon who is afraid to go to sleep! There might be dragon monsters around! Feeling safe is the second part of getting to sleep! The dragon joins them as they sail off to Ice Island. It is so cold there! They meet a seal who is very cold. Dragon breathes fire and warms them all up. They are all starting to feel sleepy! Being cozy is the third part of getting to sleep! The seal joins them and they sail off to Mighty Island. They meet a little elephant who can't get to sleep because the other elephants are making too much noise!! Having it be quiet is the four part of getting to sleep!
Little Chick is feeling very sleepy now so he and his friends head for home. The family is very happy to see Little Chick and tuck him and his friends in for the night! They all drift off to sleep!
To sleep you have to be tired, safe, cozy and quiet!"

HI MY DEAR SWEET FIBLINGS. OH MOM IS TIRED BUT SHE IS GOING TO GET AS MANY BLOGS DONE EVEN IF THEY ARE SHORT ONES.

G-PA'S CATARACT SURGERY WENT WELL ONCE THEY GOT THE LENS. I GUESS IT WAS SHIPPED LATE. WELL THEY GOT IT AND SURGERY WAS DONE AND MOM AND G-PA WERE HOME BY 11:30am. G-PA WAS VERY TIRED SO HE WENT TO BED AND SLEPT A COUPLE HOURS. NOW MOM HAS TO KEEP IT STRAIGHT AS TO WHICH EYE GETS WHAT DROPS. ITS A GOOD THING THEY GAVE MOM THE SHEETS SO SHE CAN MARK OFF THE DROPS AS SHE GIVES THEM IN EACH EYE. THE LEFT EYE ONLY GETS DROPS IN IT TWICE A DAY WITH THE PINK TOP BOTTLE AND 3 TIMES A DAY WITH THE PURPLE TOP BOTTLE. THE RIGHT EYE GETS THREE DIFFERENT DROPS, GRAY TOP IS ONCE A DAY AND THE PINK AND TAN TOPS ARE BOTH 4 TIMES A DAY. SO CONFUSING.

MOM DID KITTY KARE AND JIN JIN WAS VERY PLAYFUL TODAY. MOM SENT AND E-MAIL WITH A COUPLE PICS OF JIN JIN AND JAZZY. THEY MAY LOOK REALLY BIG BUT ITS ALL JUST FUR, MOM CAN WRAP HER HAND AROUND JAZZY'S BODY.

TODAY WAS HOT, IN THE UPPER 80'S BUT TOMORROW WILL BE WORSE. IN THE MID TO UPPER 90'S AND HUMID. MOM HAS TO TAKE G-MA OUT FOR SOME ERRANDS IN THE MORNING THEN G-PA TO HIS POST OP EYE APPY AT 3PM AND THEN AFTERWARDS MOM RIDES HER BIKE DOWN FOR KITTY KARE. IT WILL BE HER LAST DAY AS THEIR MOM WILL BE HOME LATE THAT NIGHT.

MOM DIDN'T RIDE HER BIKE LAST YEAR CAUSE HER BACK WAS HURTING TOO MUCH. BUT THIS WEEK HAS BEEN THE FIRST IN RIDING HER BIKE THIS YEAR. SHE HAD TO GET AN EXTENTION ON THE HANDLE BARS SO SHE CAN SIT UP STRAIGHT AND NOT BEND OVER WHEN RIDING. CAN YOUR MOM LOWER HER SEAT ON TEH BIKE? SHE SHOULD TRY THAT AND WHAT SIZIE IS IT? A 20", 24" OR 26"?? 26 INCH IS THE NORMAL FOR ADULT FEMALES AND THAT IS WHAT MOM'S IS. ITS A SCHWINN BIKE.

I DO HOPE SKIN SIS BIKE GETS REPAIRED AND LOOKS AS GOOD AS IT DID BEFORE THE ACCIDENT. THATS CLOSE TO $4,000 FOR A REAPIR. WHAT YEAR IS SKIN SIS CAR?

WELL I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GOOD DAY TOMORROW AND PLEASE KEEP COOL. THE HEAT WAVE IS COMING YORU WAY.

SENDING SWEET BEAKIE KISSES AND WARM WING HUGS.
PRAYERS FOR EVERYONE TO BE SAFE AND PAINFREE AND FOR ALL TO KEEP COOL.

WITH ALL MY LUV,

  Heya, Dixie!
We are so happy that things seem to be working out good for Skin Bro! He sure has been a trooper with all the crazy stuff he has had to do, and it is nice that he had the day off. I know Candida enjoyed her time with him and glad he stopped over to see your Mom (and get some goodies!). Skin Sis is doing okay? Sure hope she is able to get the accident report--maybe the guy gave her the wrong number? There should be a different way of looking it up, but then again, with all the stuff you have to protect online now, it probably isn't.

We started out pretty nice this morning, but boy, by noon it was heating up and the dew point was really getting up there! Mom went on a quest to find me watermelon with seeds. She went to three stores, a small roadside place that usually will have them, and even way down to the other side of town where she saw a big truck selling them out of the back of it. The truck was not there. She was very disappointed. I know she tried, and so I preened her ear very gently. I did get two raspberries though, so all was not lost for me anyway!

Tomorrow is supposed to be beastly, so guess where Mom and I will be? Yup, inside where it is cooler!

Wing hugs coming your way, and beaky kisses too, for you and your Mom! We sure are glad things have been boring for your Mom--boring is underrated, according to Mom. She likes boring! So much nicer than having to deal with a bunch of stuff. And thank you for being there for us, cuz it means more than you could know!

  Hi Dixie
Well the Carmela goes nice with skin sis first name and sounds pretty together. Is Carmela Nanas first name? Thought it was but again not sure now LOL. Today was another hot and humid day here. I didn’t get my sun bath today either cause of the weather. Tomorrow isn’t looking good either. Each day gets a bit warmer and more humid as the week progresses the weather guesser says. By Thursday it might rain so hope that cools things off then. Mom washed clothes and hung a few out but was so humid they didn’t dry nice like when there is a nice wind blowing. “No matter how busy life gets. Wildflowers will still spring up in the middle of no where”. Hugs~~Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Dixie
So skin bro got a new apartment nearer his new job? That is greyt news! Everything finally seems to be working out for him. Poor guy had to wait long enough.

And Aunt Teri sure did do a nice job on your pic, didn't she? She has gotten so good at it, and she has agreed to help out with the Milonga pics from now on. Mom and I are very eggcited about that, because I will get to work with SP and MOm will work with Teri. Your mom does some lovely pics too, so if she ever wants to volunteer she is welcome!

Today is the first day that Mom did the Monday zumba with Bella (pronounced Bay-yah because she is from Columbia). Very glad to report that she has toned down her zumba a lot, so it is not so "sexy". Mom enjoyed it a lot, and Becky was able to get the person who was training in the spot Mom needs to change. It didn't hurt that she was a zumba buddy of Mom's! So everything will work out for Mom's new zumba day, and all are happy about it eggcept for me. I just want her to stay home 24/7!!

Well, Mom took off to the gym a bit after 10 this morning, and it was still cloudy when she left...so no sunbath. When she got home it was too hot. However I don't really mind since Monday is trash pick up day, and I really hate being outside when those noisy trucks roll by. I much prefer sitting in my window and screaming at them.

Speaking of screaming out the window, Dad mowed and edged the lawn yesterday...MY lawn!! How dare he run that noisy machine all over my front yard? I gave him a piece of my mind, I can tell you! He didn't stop though. I bet he couldn't hear me over that noise maker he was pushing around.

Well, today is the day of Aunt Staci, Panther's mom's surgery. She had surgery last year, but the "doc" messed up her shoulder worse than it was before and never sent her to PT. So this surgery is to fix what that guy did to her (different doctor, thank goodness). Since Mom has had the same surgery to her shoulder twice (but 15 years apart) she knows how serious it is, and she has Staci deep in her heart. So please do not forget to go vote for Panther today, because you will not get a blog from him. When Staci is feeling up to talking tomorrow, she will let me know what Panther's blog should be and I will send it around for him.

Thank you all!

  Hi Dixie
8 days isn't bad for fixing the car, hope they can really do that. Meanwhile, Shiloh has a rental that the other driver is paying for, right? So she can get to work and home all right.
It sounds like you will be having some summer weather this week, that's good.
Mom says when you come here, she'll let Cori's and Gus's moms know so they can meet you too. They all live close enough to do that. Maybe everyone can meet at the aviary or at the conservatory or the museum.
It was an interesting morning at the center today. Mom was assigned to clean and feed in the raptor aviaries, the main aviary, and the small flight aviary. She was well on her way, had done the raptors (4 great horned owls and a red tailed hawk), and was cleaning the main aviary, which is currently divided into 2 separate areas, keeping the fledglings indoors and the more adult birds outside. One of the other RVS certified volunteers called off, so Bree came to see mom. She said, "I need a big favor." So mom thought she was going to assign her the RVS animals again. Instead, she said we have an RVS certified intern! Could you teach Haneen how to do the outdoor pens, and someone else will teach her on the indoor cages? Mom was so happy to do that. She still got to do the main aviary, and was able to coach the intern on how to do the outdoor pens. That meant cleaning both areas of the aviary and trying her best not to interact with the fledgling jays. They landed on her, fluttered their wings, begging for food, and she had to ignore that, clean, then feed them from bowls instead of by hand. They are growing up so fast.
It was hot this morning, and only got hotter as the day went on, so we all know where mom spent the afternoon! Yes! Lounging at the pool on her noodle, coming out to read and get a sip of iced tea. Now she's home, blogging for us, and will spend the rest of the day with us. I hope you are having a great summer day, getting some sunshine and lots of cuddles. Hugs, Peppino

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

  Hi Dixie
It's Ginger.
Dad likes country best, too. The older songs, mostly. He says that the new stuff sounds too much like rock and roll.
Yesterday was a little cooler so dad went out and edged the front lawns. There's three of them. He also fed us and helped mom finish up cleaning our cages. later on in the afternoon Bob came over and they all went to Senior Compo's for dinner.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 85 and a low of 64. They are calling for more rain later this week. Today dad's going to mow the three front lawns. Somebirdy want to call and have the paramedics stand by?
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Ginger.

  Hey Dixie,
I love your head dress thingy! Pookie hugs him tightly and says can you pray with me?

My mom is going to the dr tomorrow and file the work comp papers and she's scared and doesn't know what is going to happen.

So Dixie prays with Pookie for his mom to be okay as her migraine headaches haven't stopped.

She also needs to get a referral to see a neurologist in order to get a certain type of medicine for her migraine headaches.

It will be a long day tomorrow. I'll keep you posted.

Pookie hugs Dixie and says thanks buddy, but id better get back to mom.

See you later okay?

Sending prayers for Nana and skin sis to be okay and mom sends your mom a big birdie hug.

She is shaking as she doesn't know what's going to happen to her.

Sending you all our love and big birdie hugs and soft beaky kisses.

Love your pal,

Pookie

  Sugar and Dixie love the cookies and the smoothies! They both smile when Mr. Yearly finally makes friends with all his neighbors. It's hard to be shy but now he has lots of friends!

Sugar cleans up after their snack and props Dixie's leg up onto the Hello Kitty pillow. She massages his legs and asks about his day! She is glad they got to stay home and just relax today!
She is very happy that Shiloh is doing better and she hope that work goes well for her tomorrow. She just needs to take it slowly and not over do it!
Sugar tells Dixie that Jennifer got home a few minutes ago. She had fun at the Zoo and visiting her dad but she is glad to be home.
Sugar and mom talked to her dad for a while today. He is on his way to Texas. He has to take a 34 hour break now but after that he will be making his way home. He is looking forward to spending some time with Sugar!
Sugar tells Dixie that the Milonga must have been very fun. She was honored to be one of his Elders and she loved having him as her Elder! It was very interesting and she learned some new things!

Soon the friends are yawning and stretching their wings. It is time for bed!
Sugar wraps a wing around Dixie and gives him a kiss goodnight.
They say their prayers and include a special one just for Nana. They add prayers for the whole family!
Sugar has her own prayers just for Dixie. She loves him so very, very much and thanks the Lord everyday for bringing him into her life!

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

  Sugar waddles quietly through the house~
and hurries down the hallway. She can't wait to see Dixie!
She peeks around the corner and sees him waiting by the bird room door for her! She waddles in and throws her wings around Dixie. She holds him gently and tells him how very happy she is to be here tonight!

"How are you tonight? I hope you had a wonderful day! Getting to go outside for supper sounds like so much fun! It was rather cool here today so mom even had to close the window up. There was a cool breeze and she didn't want it blowing on me!
I hope Candida behaved herself today!! I can understand how much fun ripping up paper is but she really can't go getting her head stuck in the grate!!"

The friends waddle over to the platform and snuggle close together. Sugar hands Dixie the Hello Kitty lunch box. He opens it up and sees oatmeal cookies inside! He places the cookies on napkins for them while Sugar pours them each a glass of strawberry smoothie. They nibble the cookies and sip the smoothies while Sugar starts to read the story she has for them tonight!

"This book is called "Friendship Tree". Mr. Yearly is moving to a new neighborhood. When he goes outside, all his neighbors wave and say hello. Mr. Yearly is rather shy so he just smiles and nods his head!
He has a lovely garden at his new home and likes to spend time sitting by a wonderful apple tree in the middle of his yard. He sees the squirrels running around the tree and tells the tree it is very lucky to have so many friends!
In the Autumn the tree has tons of apples on it. There are too many for Mr. Yearly to use so he gets an idea. On Sunday he takes a basket of apples to each of his neighbors and leaves it on their door step with a note!
On Monday Mrs. Alvera comes by and brings him an apple pie. She thanks him for the apples. On Tuesday Mr. Nesbit brings him a jar of apple jam! On Wednesday his neighbor Trudy brings him an apple cake! On Thursday Mrs. McClain brings him some squash and apple soup. On Friday Mrs. Ashley brings him some apple bread and on Saturday his neighbor Maggie comes by to tell him all her kids loved the apples and they ate them all up!
Now that he has met all the neighbords, Mr. Yearly had an idea! On Sunday he throw a party in his garden and invites all his new friends! They all admire the apple tree and Mr. Yearly tells them that he is going to call it his
Friendship tree!"

MY DEAR SWEET ELDER FIBLINGS. I AM SO GLAD THAT YOU ALL LIKE YOUR ELDER PORTRAITS AND THE FEATHER HEADRESSES THAT MOM CHOSE FOR YOU. MOM HAD TO KEEP LOOKING AT THE DIFFERENT HEADRESSES TO SEE WHICH WOULD LOOK THE BEST ON EACH OF YOU.

I AM SO HAPPY THAT THE EXCEDRINE MIGRAINE WORKS FOR YOUR MOM. THEY HAD TAKEN IT OFF THE MARKET FOR AWHILE FEW YEARS BACK. KIDDO'S MOM ALSO TAKES IT AND SHE DID RESEARCH TO FIND A DRUG THAT HAD THE SAME INGREDIANTS IN IT. THAT WAS THE CVS BRAND OF MIGRAINE HEADACHE PILLS. MOM WAS JUST SO HAPPY WHEN EXCEDRINE CAME BACK THOUGH.

WE HAD A VERY CLOUDY DAY HERE. IT TRIED TO RAIN EARLY AFTERNOON WHEN MOM RODE HER BIKE DOWN TO TAKE CARE OF THE KITTIES. IT DIDN'T RAIN TILL 5PM AND MOM WAS HOME BY THEN.

MOM TAKES G-PA TO GET HIS CATARACT SURGERY DONE ON HIS RIGHT EYE IN THE MORNING. SO MOM HAS TO GET UP EARLY TO GET READY. THEN SHE HAS TO GET SWEETPEPPER UP EARLY AS G-MA CAN'T GET THE COVERS OFF HER CAGE.

MOM WILL HAVE KITTY KARE TO DO TOMORROW AFTERNOON AND THEN ON TUESDAY. THE KITTIES MOM COMES HOME LATE TUESDAY NIGHT.

SENDING YOU ALL SWEET HEALING BEAKIE KISSES AND WARM WING HUGS.

PRAYERS FOR SKIN SIS THAT THE INSURANCE GETS ON TEH BALL AND SENDS OUT THE MONEY TO GET HER CAR FIXED AND SO THAT SHE CAN GET A LOANER CAR.

  Heya, Dixie!
We are so happy that Candida was able to get her head out of the grate with your Mom's help. What was she thinking? Mom took the grate out of my house right away, as I generally don't go down there, unless I drop something I really want (like a raspberry). I bet she dropped something and wanted it very much, huh?

Mom has AAA, and has had it since 2004. She would not be without it, believe me! She really likes having it just in case, and she has used it several times. Best service! Especially when the car went kaput when she was running Kim from the doctors to get that prescription. She definitely recommends them or any of the other programs like them. A must have for anyone who drives!

Mom is feeling so much better today. She had a bout during the night, but was able to get some sleep. We took a superb nap this morning. She did some cleaning and stuff, and then went by Grandpa's. Now she is home with me, and I am a happy birdie! Pretty soon it will be popcorn time!

Well, our lion was sighted last night again. And guess what? There is a cub. Several people saw it. Police came and could not find it, as there is brush and vegetation in the area. It was seen this morning by the police, but they lost it when the tried to follow it. The police say it is lion-like, but the eyewitnesses last night said it was big, and definitely a lion. With a cub. Mom suspects if there are boarded up homes in the area, that might be where the lion is hiding out. We have a lot of places that are boarded up in the city. So the MKE Lion continues to elude police.

Sending good thoughts and wing hugs and beaky kisses to your Mom, and wish Nana could go on that trip too, but totally understand that the drive would be bad. Hopefully Skin Sis will be able to get that car so your Mom doesn't have to worry about Nana. How is Skin Bro doing on his new job? Sure hope he is not working all those hours like before! We love ya more than you can know, and make the sun shine every day!

Aww that is cute the little parakeet had the same name as skin sis and it did live a long time too. What is skin sis middle name...its a bit hard to put one with that but our grands is Paul which doesnt go too well either LOL. I got my bath this morning and then mom and I sat on the porch while I got my sun bath. Mom said we had to get outside before the humidity got worse which is did later. It was nice and cool in the house though. There is a local girl that has been on television on the voice and she didn’t win but did really well till she was eliminated. Every year she and a bunch of others sing and perform at a festival so mom and dad went there last night for a bit. Mia Z is a more of a blues singer though mom likes country best and some of the bands did that too. I didn’t have a typist at the milonga but my gal Suzi and I had lots of fun there any way. It was another great milonga thanks to everyone for putting it together too. ”May your blessings be countless like grains of sand” Left a vote for you! Your kissing cousin, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Kiddo here, filling in for my frother in feathers, Panther. His mom called and their puter is still down, so I am using his log on to continue his campaign for him at least for today and tomorrow when his mom is going in for her surgery. She thinks she will be back to blogging the day after that, but my mom had the same surgery and says she is smoking something funny in her peace pipe if she thinks she will be up to blogging that quick! We shall see.

Anyway Panther has had such an interesting campaign for us this month with a lot to learn about our Northern Cheyenne Native Americans. He wanted to ask each of you what is the most interesting thing you have learned about them this month?

Thanks for voting for Panther,
Kiddo
