Hi! My name is Dixie

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

Keets, Keetsie

23 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..

  MY DEAR SWEET DIXIE, CANDIDA, PEEPERS AND COUSINS
OUR DAY WAS HAZY. THE SUN WASN'T ABLE TO BREAK THRU. TEMPS WERE MID 70'S.
MOM HAD HER DENTIST APPT AND THAT WENT WELL. NO CAVITIES. MOM'S DENTIST WON'T OVER DO THE X-RAYS CAUSE HE KNOWS MOM CAN'T AFFORD IT ALL THE TIME. HE WILL DO THEM ONCE A YEAR.

MOM GOT HOME AND DID A LOAD OF LAUNDRY. THEN WE JUST RELAXED AS BY 1PM THE DARK CLOUDS CAME IN AND THEN IT STARTED RAINING. SO NO SUNBATH TODAY.
WE ARE HOPING CAN GET OUT TOMORROW.

CAN'T BELIEVE THAT MAY IS OVER AND TOMORROW IS JUNE 1ST. HALF THE YEAR IS GONE ALREADY.

MOM DIDN'T EAT BREAKFAST AT ALL THIS MORNING BUT DID HAVE ONE TABLESPOON OF G-PA'S WONDERFUL TUNA-EGG SALAD ON A CRACKER. THEN SHE HAD A HAMBURGER FOR DINNER WITH TOMATO SLICES.

MOM WILL JUST ONLY BE ABLE TO EAT ONE MEAL ADAY TO KEEP THE WORST OF THE BLOATING DOWN.

NOTHING ELSE EXCITING HERE. HOPE AUNT ROSE GOT TO DO A BIT OF COLORING.

SENDING SWEET BEAKIE KISSES AND WARM WING HUGS.

PRAYERS FOR ALL TO BE SAFE AND DRY AT HOME AND NOT BE ON THE ROAD WITH THE CRAZY DRIVERS. PRAYERS THAT NANA HAS A NICE DAY AND SATYS HEALTHY AND STRONG AND NOT HAVE ANY BAD PAIN.
EXTRA SPECIAL PRAYERS ALWAYS FOR YOU DIXIE SO THAT YOU STAY STRONG AND HEALTHY AND NOT SUFFER ANY SEIZURES, CRAMPS OR PAIN AND THAT YOUR NARES UNPLUGS.

  Heya, Dixie!
So does Skin Bro get reimbursed from the company he works for to get his car fixed? Sure hope so! It is hard when you have to use your car for the job like he does.

It was a greyt day until a little after 3 PM. Then Mom took me in the bathroom and shut the door. My carrier was in there! Darn her, she tricked me into getting into it. I did give her a nice beak mark on her hand though. Then it was in the car, and driving to the new vet place. Oh, my there were puppies and kitties everywhere! I was hollering away and having a good time until this nice young man came and took me away from Mom. Boy, I was not happy to have my two flight feathers snipped. I sure did not mind the toenails, though. He brought me back to Mom, and I just glared at her and anyone else who was around. They did a sneak attack and snipped my two primary flights! But they did not charge Mom for them, so that was a relief.

Then the rain came on the way home. And the temps have dropped down to 61. Mom was glad to get home, and so was I. I ignored Mom for about 20 minutes before I velcroed myself to her.

Have a super night, and wing hugs coming your way, your Mom's and Candida's. And good thoughts and prayers for the entire flockily (Skin and Feathered). Mom is ready to turn in--tired today! Know your Mom is going to be doing her running around tomorrow, we think anyway. Hope she gets home early!

BC is being weird again tonight; time outs for about 20 minutes. Hopefully you will get the blog!

Well, it's worth a try to see if Nana can get a big credit with her phones ... she should! Hope you have luck with the curtains too. Hope skinbro's car gets fixed soon too.
My dad had to hose everything down for two weeks cause of that yellow pollen being so thick! After that, it wasn't too bad.
We also hate those noisy t-storms but we are now in the rainy season. FL gets really bad ones. I think anywhere in the tropics or near the ocean coast you will have nasty t-storms.
Tomorrow is the first day of hurricane season (June 1 thru Nov 30). My dad was busy checking on the bolts that hold the hurricane shutters. Then mom had to go to an appointment. She has another one tomorrow so, I will catch up on my naps. I heard they are going to the beach after ... without me. I think this calls for a treat!

  Hi Dixie
We saw where Verizon strike is over and hopefully Nana will get her phone fixed now. They are suppose to return to work tomorrow.Oh mom sure can relate how your mom worries over Nana and not having a phone. Mom used to call her mom at a certain time and if she didnt answer the phone mom would hurry down to make sure she was ok. She was but it always was a worry too. We are still having lots of trouble with this internet server but keep trying but just want to remind you if you don’t hear from me you know why.
Today mom went for groceries and she still hasn’t gotten in the groove of going to the fruit stand yet. They are closed on Monday and Tuesday now and when mom is at the store she just buys what she needs there then because the fruit stand might not have what mom is wanting and then have to stop again at the store so just does it all at the store. She keeps thinking one of the days she will go but then something happens that day and she doesn’t get there any way.
I got a nice bath and then a sunbath today and boy did that sun feel good. Mom and dad sat on the swing while I was half in the sun and half out in the outside condo.
Mom took the plants outside so the one that sat behind my play gym isn’t there and I don’t have to fly far to get on the windowsill now like I did before when a plant was there. It is staying daylight longer and I sit up on the window sill and chat with the wild birds in the evening before bedtime.

  Hi Dixie
It's pretty easy to tell who's been fed, as they quit gaping and go back to sleep when they're full. Mom always makes sure to give them enough to swallow, then enough to fill the crop again. She tops it off with a drop or 2 of electrolyte solution so they don't get dehydrated. It's a fun job! Mom loves the nursery, too, because there are always different birds in there, and a lot of variety. The mammal nursery is predictable with squirrels, possums, and the occasional chipmunk or mouse. The Rabies vector nursery is also predictable, with foxes, skunks, raccoons, ground hogs, coyotes, and bats. But with the birds, you never know who is going to be in there!
Mom won the first raffle at the pool this year; it's a gift basket of gift cards! She doesn't know what they are, since she thought she was just contributing. (She rarely wins anything.) But she'll pick it up today and we'll find out. The pool opens at 4 all this week, so mom will pretty much be home after she's done at the museum every day.
This morning's tour was in PA natural history with 7th grade kids. The hour went pretty quickly and the kids were more or less attentive. The group mom had was with a teacher so she was able to keep them focused somewhat. This time of year, though, the kids are done and are looking for summer fun.
Mom posted a pic of the nighthawk and the kestrel on Falco's page for everyone to see. These are a couple of the birds from the avian nursery that mom cleaned yesterday. Sorry they are sideways again, they were right side up when mom looked at them in the file.
I hope you are having a great day. It's beautiful here, lots of sunshine and heat. Get lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Peppino

  oh no ! Rain ?
Our rain stopped by noon yesterday so mom and dad were able to get out and about for a very short time - their walk by the river last night. Poor papa Rich, he and his crew getting half the parade barriers up before finding out the parade was cancelled due to weather ! Otherwise, we hung around the house and did some laundry - and you'll be pleased to hear, I didn't pull a single thread from the pocket of any of daddy's tee-shirts ! (Some of them barely have pockets anymore - it's so much fun, one thread at a time . . . snap, pick, pop) Then I helped mom with a bit of school work before heading out onto the deck :) Last night we watched Abbott and Costello - boy are those guys silly !

Daddy is home today to go mow the g'parronts' lawn. After the rain Saturday night, g'ma says it needs it. Tomorrow he has to take g'pa to another dr. appointment - this time just his internist. So, it's still pretty busy here. G'ma is still getting used to her new car, and won't drive on the highway so there are still things mom and daddy need to help out with . . . At least she'll drive to the market and the drug store - and she can get to one of g'pa's doctors on back roads . . .

What's up at your perch for today ? I bet mama Rose tries to combine hers and nana's trips these days with all the traffic. . . Have a good day little buddy - give my lovin' to all the skin and feathers in your happy home :) love Cookie

I sure would tell Verizon that you expect a huge credit on your bill (Nana's) because you have had no phone service for ___ number of days! Most of the time, they will not do that unless you call them and say that.
I heard that the Carolina's have the yellow pollen really bad. It's bad enough done here.
Was the parade cancelled because of weather?
Happy Memorial Day. Today started out very nice but after lunch we had a storm and the rain went on for a couple of hours. Then after dinner, we had scary t-storm lasting a couple of hours. The power went out several times. Mom is doing better today, she even went in the pool before dinner. We had some BBQ ribs for dinner and I even licked one ... that was brave of me.
Hugs
Chyna
Hope your nares are doing good now.

  Heya, Dixie!
Good for your Mom telling Skin Sis that the dryer was off for the summer to the fall. And to bring her own laundry detergent. I know it sounds harsh, but believe me, Mom never once thought of taking her laundry to Grandpa's to do there, use his soap, his water and his electric/gas. There are machines in the apt building--right outside the door. Costs $1.50 to wash, $1.00 to dry. It is a pain to keep up with the quarters for it, but it is convenient. Mom wishes Grandpa had room for the washer and dryer upstairs at his house, so he would not have to go to the basement. He says he can do it, but Mom says that when he needs to have her do it, she will.

Figured you would have rain from that storm Bonnie. Glad you had your MOm and Dad home with you (though it would have been nice to know the parade was cancelled before your Dad left to set up barricades!)

All we did today was work on some pictures. It was nice out, but Mom got up late (9 AM!) and she said she felt like it was a good day to stay home with me. Who am I to object?! So she did her exercises and did some stuff around here, and I got to look outside from the hanging planter (no plant in it anymore, as I chewed up the silk flowers that were in it years ago). Mom turned on the air as by 5PM it was super hot with the sun coming in, and the nice breeze we had left us.

Not much else going on, which is lovely!

Wing hugs coming to you, your Mom, and Candida! And good thoughts and prayers for all of you, and your Nana, your Dad and the Skins.

HI MY SWEET FIBLINGS AND COUSINS. OH MOM'S MOUTH STARTED WATERING WHEN SHE READ THAT YOUR MOM MADE MACADAMIA NUT WHITE CHOCOLATE COOKIES. THOSE ARE SO YUMMY. MOM WON'T BE DOING ANY BAKING NOW THAT ITS WARMER HERE. SO WE HAVE TO WAIT TILL FALL AND COOLER TEMPS BEFORE MAKE OUR RED VELVET COOKIE BARS.

WE HAD A NICE DAY TODAY. IT WAS WARMER AND ONLY A SLIGHT BREEZE BUT SITTING UNDER THE TREE OUT FRONT WASN'T BAD. WE WERE IN HALF SHADE HALF SUN. SAT OUTSIDE IN THE SUN FOR A LITTLE OVER AND HOUR. THEN IT WAS TIME TO GO IN AND GET THINGS READY FOR THE GRILL. MOM SLICED THE TOMATOES AND HELPED G-PA GET THE BURGERS ON THE GRILL. WE HAD A VERY SIMPLE MEAL, BURGERS AND CHIPS THEN FOR DESSERT MOM HAD BOUGHT A CARAMEL TURTLE ICE CREAM CAKE.

MOM HAD HER CARNATION INSTANT BREAKFAST DRINK THIS MORNING AND NOTHING TO EAT EXCEPT DRINK TEA FOR LUNCH. SHE WANTED TO SAVE HERSELF FOR THE BURGERS. SO SHE WASN'T AS BLOATED AFTER EATING. GUESS MOM WON'T BE ABLE TO EAT A LOT. THERE WAS NO NAUSEA OR PAIN TODAY SO THAT WAS GOOD.

MOM GOT ALL THE PICTURES SAVED TO HER COMPUTER THEN SHE NUMBERED THEM ALL USING PIZAP. WE HAVE AN EVEN NUMBER NOW; 14 GENTS AND 14 LADIES FOR THE PROM PICTURE CONTEST. SO TRIXIE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ENTER THIS TIME.

I SURE HOPE YOU GET SOME WARMER WEATHER SOON. THE TROPICAL STORM IS BEING DOWNGRADED OUT EAST. WE HAVE 30% CHANCE OF RAIN THIS WEEKEND SO LIKELY WE WON'T GET RAIN UNLESS IT CHANGES. THE TEMPS WILL BE IN THE MID TO LOW 80'S THIS WEEK. HOPING THERE ARE SOME NICE BREEZES.

MOM HAS TO GO TO THE DENTIST TOMORROW MORNING. SHE CAN ONLY AFFORD GOING ONCE A YEAR CAUSE THE X-RAYS ARE TOO COSTLY.

I DO HOPE YOUR MOM AND NANA GET OUT TO SPORTS AUTHORITY TO SEE WHAT THEY HAVE. THE STORES WILL OFFICIALLY CLOSE IN AUGUST. THEY DID AWAY WITH THE GUNS AND THE FISHING EQUIPMENT. OUR STORE WAS HALF EMPTY AND YOU KIND OF HAVE TO SEARCH FOR WHAT YOU WANT. THEY DIDN'T HAVE MUCH IN THE WAY OF BIGGER SIZES LIKE 2X ON UP. PLENTY OF MEDIUMS, SMALLS AND LARGES. MOM MAY GO BACK TO SEE WHAT OTHER THINGS SHE CAN FIND.

THAT WAS SO DUMB OF SOMEONE NOT CALLING YOUR DAD AND TELLING HIM THE PARADE WAS CANCELED DUE TO RAIN. WILL THEY RESCHEDULE THE PARADE OR FORGET ABOUT IT.

I SURE HOPE YOUR MOM SAT AND RELAXED AND COLORED IN HER COLORING BOOK. ITS SO VERY RELAXING. MOM DOES A LOT OF COLORING AT NIGHT BEFORE BED.

HOPE THINGS WARM UP FOR YOU.

SENDING YOU ALL THE SWEETEST BEAKIE KISSES AND WARMEST OF WING HUGS.

Sure sounds like your mom was busy busy busy yesterday my goodness. I really hope she had time to sit and relax today.
Such a gorgeous day here today with plenty of sun and temps in the low 80's and that breeze finally died down. Mom was feeling really tired for some reason today so we had a lazy day of doing nothing. She only left briefly to get a few more groceries and food for me before she goes back to work tomorrow. Just a few days of work then shes off friday then just has to work the weekend and monday then shes on vacation for a week.

Thanks for the grands birthday wishes. Yes the grands mom keeps all the birthday cards that mom makes for them so they will have them later too.We have heard more in the last few days from Verizon then ever before but just a repeat of each we had to do. They waste more time calling and should just fix Nana problem. So dumb! Wow your mom sure had a busy Sunday with the skin sibs and no wonder she is tired! Happy Memorial Day and I hope you had a fun and safe one too. Mom made pasta salad and hot dogs and baked beans for the holiday. I was just happy mom was home with me for the day though.
The grand had softball tournaments with the traveling team over the weekend and they got first place so she sure was excited. They only lost one game out of 11. They had second place before but this is the first time they got first place though so really exciting.
Today was another nice day and of course another sunbath for yours truly and sure loving them too. I got another bath too before I went out for my sunbath and mom says all that is good for my feathers.

  Dixie, Sugar and Candida are rolling on the floor giggling! What a silly bird! Why would you ever want to be a dog when you are an awesome bird? Sugar is glad they enjoyed the story. She thought it was pretty funny and hoped that they would like it!

They kick back on the pillows to rest up before supper. Sugar asks if Aunt Rose had a quieter day today? She sure was super busy yesterday.
Sugar tells them that mom got more boxes ready for the Goodwill. Now she has to load them in the car and take them there. They need to finish clearing out moms closet too before they come for the inspection on Wednesday. There is a sprinkler in moms closet and they have to be able to walk in there to look at it!hehehehehehe
Sugar tells them that they talked to dad this morning. He was leaving Wyoming and heading home. He will be here Wednesday but has to deliver in Tacoma on Friday. It will only take an hour or so and then he can stay until Monday. The second part of the load he has needs to be in Oregon on Monday so dad will get a nice long break and only have to work a few hours on Friday.
Sugar tells them that one of moms break lights went out and a nice man let mom know! She had Ian stand behind the car to see which one it was. Mom has the package for the light bulb from the last time she had to change them and will get the new bulb before she leaves work in the morning. It's pretty simple to change it.
Sugar asks how Nana is doing and asks if Shiloh is still working part time? Has Anthony heard anything about that apartment? Sugar and mom have been praying he gets that one since it sounds perfect for him.
Sugar asks if Aunt Rose has to go out tomorrow? She knows now that Memorial day is over that lots of people will be heading up there for the summer. The traffic around Sugar's place was bad this weekend but she imagines it's nothing like Dixie's town!

The friends continue talking and playing with some blocks until Aunt Rose calls them to supper! Sugar wraps a wing around Dixie and heads off to the dining room! She thanks them all for their hospitality! She just loves being here with them and loves having all this time with Dixie!

grab a bag of popcorn and head off to the play tent to listen to a story before supper. Sugar tells her friends that nothing could out do the fabulous supper they had last night! Sugar loves ravioli and the salad was so yummy!
Candida opens the juice boxes while Sugar gets Dixie settled in. The nibble on popcorn and sip the juice while Sugar starts to read!

"This book is called "I wish I were a Dog". A little red bird says hello to us! He tells us to follow him. Can I tell you a secret? Yes? Come closer so I can whisper. I've always wanted to be a....Dog! I've been practicing a lot. Oh, you don't believe me? Haven't you heard my bark? BARK BARK! Impressed? I thought so. I can growl too GRRR!!!! I told you I've been practicing! So why do I wish to be a dog, you ask? That's easy! Dogs get all the perks! I want to enjoy treats....I want to sleep on a big, soft bed...I want my tummy rubbed! So from now on please treat me like a dog!
What is that? That's my lunch?? You're kidding, right? Where are my treats? What do you mean I have to earn the treats? HUMPH! You want me to fetch the stick? I think not! I never signed up for this!! Hey! What's with the needle? You want to stick it where??? Whoa...just hold on! Why didn't anyone tell me this before? Okay, okay! I take it all back!

  Hi Dixie
Mom has some books she can send this week, if your mom wants them. She saved some Amazon boxes so they should pack and mail okay. Let us know.
Happy Memorial Day to all!
Yesterday was a washout at the pool, it rained nearly all afternoon. Mom did go to dinner with her daughter, though, and had a good time. Mom's granddaughter Lena called, too, and they have plans for next Sunday. Guess what? Lena is still willing to cut mom's hair! So mom will drive down there on Sunday to visit and get a haircut in the afternoon.
Today mom cleaned and fed in the avian nursery. There is a big variety of birds in there now, including bluebirds, those cute downy woodpeckers (who are in a fledgling cage now), a pileated woodpecker, a baby kestrel, a nighthawk, some ducklings, and the usual assortment of baby songbirds, sparrows, and pigeons. It's getting very crowded in there! Mom got all the cages done except for the little crow, and that was because, since she had the 30 minute timer, she just ran out of time. The thirty minute timer was for 2 incubators today, which means about 40 baby birds all needing cleaned and fed every half hour. That takes a lot of time!
After the center, mom came home, changed, and went to the pool, where she jumped into the water just to cool off a little before she even set up her chair. She stayed at the pool for about 3 hours, and now that she's showered and dressed, she's ours for the rest of the day. No picnics this year, unfortunately, but that's okay. Mom bought a chicken wrap at the pool to eat for dinner tonight, so she still doesn't have to cook.
I hope you are having a wonderful Memorial Day celebration today, maybe attending a parade, or giving thanks to our vets in some other way. Get lots of attention for yourself, too! Hugs, Peppino and Falco

Well, it is supposed to hit 76 here today, although not until about 1PM which is when I will get my sunbath.
Then the temps will be climbing fast until by Friday we will be in the 90s. That means morning sunbaths, which is when I start giving Mom a hard time about getting into the carrier again. Since she now has worked out several methods for getting me in there, I suppose my tricky ways won't be working so well.

Becky emailed Mom last night, and Gold's decided to waive her 2 weeks notice and let her go. She wasn't surprised, because they don't want her to take her clients with her. They don't know she is going private part time to supplement her Physical Therapy job, but they didn't want to take any chances. Since she already set things up with the clients she wants to keep, like Mom, too bad for them. Mom still has 5 sessions left, but Becky has talked to Talyah about Mom's issues so things will work out just fine with her for those sessions.

Meanwhile as soon as Mom is done blogging we will share either a roast beef sandwich or more enchilada pie for lunch then go outside. Sounds like a fine afternoon to me.

Yeah, Mom absolutely loves blueberries in any way, shape or form, but her favorite is that deep dish pie. She also likes them fresh on her cereal, but for some reason I only like them cooked. I am pretty sure Mom will go for an apple topping when she tries that cake. She can cut the apples into smaller pieces and that way they should really smoosh in well. She is gonna wait a while though. Too many sweets too close together is not good for either her or Dad, and Dad talked her into buying a Turtle Pie for the holiday. Not sure why it is called that, because Mom says there aren't any turtles in it. Apparently I won't find out, because it is loaded with chocolate.

  HELLO FROM LITTLE MISS LUCY
Hi Sweet little Dixie,
I'm so sorry to hear that your eyes are not better. Those flushes sound miserable! Mommy said that she was exhausted just reading your blog! How on earth does your Mommy do it?! It sounds like she needs some help. My Mommy agrees with Kaji's Mom...skin sis is a big girl and lives on her own. Why in the world would she expect your Mommy to do her laundry? It's one thing to bring it over, but quite another for your Mommy to do it AND fold it! Next time, your Mommy should show her the washing machine and tell her she's welcome to use it, but to bring her own detergent. As long as your Mommy keeps doing all this stuff, others will keep taking advantage of her. She has enough work to do. There...my scolding is finished. We're just sticking up for your wonderful Mommy 'cause we love her.

Oldest skin sis arrives this afternoon from MN. So Mommy has another trip to the airport today. Unfortunately, one of our major freeways to the airport is closed for several months while it's being re-paved. So that means that Mommy has to take surface roads. It isn't too bad as long as it's not during rush hour. Since today is a holiday, it won't be too bad, but it still takes an additional 20 to 30 minutes. When the freeway is open it's about 45 min. So now it's over an hour. Mommy is happy to make the trip though.

Mommy is trying to get a few blogs in before all the birdies are up, but of course, I'm up and keeping her company. We hope you and your parronts have a wonderful Memorial Day and that Nana is feeling well. Will she be joining you for a cook out? We're sending loads of love your way from Mommy and me.
Hugs and Loads of Beaky Kisses,
Little Miss Lucy♥♥

Hello silly friends. There's nothing in the bowl...but me.
This Pasta Bowl is my favorite perch to watch Dad make yummy things in the kitchen.
Dad loves when I'm there - he calls it "BIRD IN A BOWL" -he says he should serve me that way for lunch - then laughs.

Have a wonderful day

  on Memorial Day . . .
The flag flies over this land of the brave and the free
as a symbol of the liberty enjoyed by you and me.
It flutters in the breeze of a quiet afternoon
reflecting sounds of battles in which men died too soon.

The flag flies overhead in cities and in towns
where people seek a haven from worlds turned upside-down.
It tries, gallantly, to honor, on quiet afternoons,
memories of warriors -- young men who died too soon.

The flag flies overhead -- unseen, by some, it seems,
who hurry on their separate ways in search of private dreams.
It waves farewell then, it appears, with the rise of the evening moon,
it gently reaches out to touch the men who died too soon.

PS. The deck got done yesterday just in time for the rain ! Boy is it pouring now . . . the planting got done too, so the maters and flowers are happy today ;)

What's up out there at your perch today ? We're obviously not cooking out ! At least dad cooked out at the g'parronts on Saturday so mom was able to have a burger - and yesterday she gave me some corn ;) yummy ! Today she'll catch up on the laundry . . . I will supervise of course !

My love to mom, dad, nana, the skins and feathers ! ! love you - Cookie

  Heya, Dixie!
Mom would have left Skin Sis's laundry in the basket and made her do it--preferably at a laundromat. Mom is appalled that she would come over and make your Mom do her laundry!! What cajones! Mom says not to get her started, but if you want a BBQ, you bring the main food and the rest of the goodies, and not expect your Mom to provide it all. Your Mom should never ever have to do anything that she doesn't start or instigate. Mom is so mad at how your Mom is being taken advantage of. Not right!

Bet it was lovely to be out on the deck and enjoying the fresh air yesterday. And it is nice to visit with Peepers and Celine today. Too bad it was not nice enough for you to go out today.

Quiet day here with Mom. She went over to Grandpa's today and brought me some pecan kringle back. Yummy stuff, for sure! It was a lovely day--patio doors open, beautiful breeze coming in, and the humidity and dew points were bearable! We got into the high 70's but with that breeze, it felt so nice!

Wing hugs coming your way, and your Mom's and Candida's! And sure hope that nare flush cleaned out everything--Mom saw how they do that on this one TV program yesterday. Mom watched it and so did I--sure hope I never need it, even if it is good for me. Sending good thoughts and prayers to the entire flock--Skin and Feathered. Hoping your Mom has a relaxed day tomorrow!

XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO,
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Dixie
Sure hope Nana gets her phones working soon! I think there should be a big credit on the phone bill!!!!
I hope your mom and Nana can find the curtains they are looking for. We think that Penneys and BB&B have the best selection for curtains, drapes, and rods. Funny thing, Lowe's has a few nice ones too sometimes. But they have a small selection but it's worth a look if you have time.
We had that nasty yellow pollen for over 2 weeks ... what a mess that was!
Oh no, you had a blocked nare. Hope it's doing better now.
Another day of nurse scrubs for me, mom had a bad sick day. I sure hope she is well soon as I want more play time. Hope everybird is having a greyt weekend with greyt weather.
Hugs

GOOD EVENING MY SWEET LOVING FIBLINGS AND COUSINS. OH MY YOUR MOM IS ALWAYS SO BUSY. DOING THREE LOADS OF LAUNDRY AND DOING THE GRILLING AND THEN SERVING EVERYONE. I DO NOT KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT, SERIOUSLY. SINCE YOU HAD YOUR BBQ TODAY, THEN TOMORROW WHILE ITS RAINING YOUR MOM CAN STAY HOME AND REST AND COLOR IN HER BOOK. MOM HAS DONE 5 BOOKS SO FAR AND IS WORKING ON 2 AT THE SAME TIME. A COUPLE OF TEH COLORING BOOKS WERE SIMPLE ONES AND VERY EASY TO DO. SHE HAS A FEW MORE DIFFICULT AND TIME CONSUMING ONES TO DO. MOM FOUND THE BEST COLORING BOOKS ARE BY THE COMPANY-CREATIVE HAVEN. IF YOU LOOK UP ON AMAZO.COM AND TYPE IN CREATIVE HAVEN ADULT COLORING BOOKS, THEY WILL ALL COME UP. MOM IS STILL WORKING ON HER OWLS ONE AND THEN SHE GOT A DRAGON FLY ONE. SHE IS GOING TO GET A BUTTERFLY ONE NEXT. MOM IS SO ADDICTED TO COLORING. IT HELPS HER RELAX.

MOM HAD A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP LAST NIGHT AND WOKE UP FEELING BETTER. SHE CAN STILL TELL HER STOMACH IS NOT PERFECT SO SHE HAD HER CARNATION INSTANT BREAKFAST DRINK. THEN HER AND G-MA WENT TO SPORTS AUTHORITY TO SEE WHAT THEY HAD ON SALE. MOM AND G-MA GOT SOME SOCKS, 2 PAIR OF CHAMPION BOXER BRIEFS AND A COOL BLUE LIGHTWEIGHT T-SHIRT FOR HER BROTHER TO GIVE ON HIS BIRTHDAY JUNE 21ST. THEN SHE GOT A COUPLE LIGHT COOL TANK TOPS ALONG WITH A SLEEVELESS LIGHT WEIGHT TOP FOR G-PA FOR FATHER'S DAY. MOM GOT HERSELF 2 LIGHTWEIGHT COOL SHIRTS FOR THE GYM AND SHE FOUND ON SALE 2 WINTER HATS WITH A BILL. SHE GOT A GREY ONE AND A BLACK ONE. THEY NORMALLY SOLD FOR $26 BUT GOT THEM FOR $10 EACH. THE ONE SHE GOT 2 YRS AGO IS GETTING WORN OUT. SO NOW MOM HAS 2 BACKUP ONES. ITS HARD TO FIND HATS THAT WILL FIT MOM'S HEAD AS ITS SMALL. WHEN IN THE SERVICE, THEY HAD TO GIVE MOM THE SMALLEST SIZED HAT THEY HAD.

SPORTS AUTHORITY HAS ALL THEIR WINTER GEAR ON SALE. BETTER GO AND CHECK IT OUT BEFORE THEY ARE ALL SOLD OUT. MOM ASKED WHY THEY WERE CLOSING AND THE FOLKS THAT WORKED THERE SAID THAT THE COMPANY WENT BANKRUPT. SAD NOW THEY ALL HAVE TO FIND JOBS.

ONCE MOM AND G-MA GOT HOME, THEY GOT ME AND SWEETPEPPER INTO OUR CAGES AND OUT WE WENT. WE SAT OUTSIDE FOR AN HOUR AND 45 MINS. WE WERE GOING IN AFTER 45 MINS BUT THE NEIGHBOR ACROSS THE STREET CAME OVER TO VISIT. SHE IS A SWETE LADY. SHE LOST HER HUSBAND 12 YEARS AGO, THEN 7 MONTHS LATER HER SON DIED AND NOW LAST YEAR HER ONLY DAUGHTER DIED IN A BAD CAR ACCIDENT. SHE WAS A PASSENGER. SHE IS LOST WITHOUT HER DAUGHTER AS THEY DID A LOT TOGETHER. SHE HAS ONE SON LEFT AND HE COMES AS OFTEN AS HE CAN. HE HAS A JOB WHERE HE WORKS LIKE 13 HOURS A DAY AND SOMETIMES WORKS A FEW WEEKS WITHOUT A DAY OFF. SHE WON'T GET TO SEE HER SON FOR 3 MONTHS CAUSE OF HIS JOB.

WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A NICE RELAXING DAY HERE AT HOME TOMORROW. G-PA IS GRILLING HIS SPECIAL BURGERS ON THE GRILL. MOM SAYS WE WILL SIT OUTSIDE AGAIN TOMORROW. TODAY WAS PERFECT WITH THE NICE BREEZE. HOPE ITS THE SAME TOMORROW.

SENDING YOU LOTS OF SWEET BEAKIE KISSES AND WARM WING HUGS.

HAVE A WONDERFUL MEMORIAL

  Hi Dixie
Yeah my mom really never wants to leave me alone again for a night even though she knows I will be just fine. She left me once that was a few years ago now and seeing how I acted the next day when she got back home she never wanted to again. As soon as she let me out of my cage I leaped out onto her and was whistling and pretty much wouldn't leave her side the rest of the day.
Another beautiful sunny warm day here but once again pretty windy at least it keeps the air moving. The wind has died down now will be interesting to see if it's windy tomorrow.
Been a good day here mom spent quite a bit of time with me and did some laundry and vacuumed then headed to her parronts house for dinner. They kept it simple with some brats on the grill and just some beans and coleslaw it was a nice time. She's home now and mine the rest of the night. Have a good night buddy.

Yes its the same company as Nana's and they are on strike here so could care less.The problem is bad here too and most people have already switched to another company if they can.We are still having internet problems. We are changing providers but the other one won‘t be set up till June 9th so till then we will try to blog as long as this one lets us. It is very frustrating with bird channel problems and now this too so our blogs will be short as long as we can do them. Today was another warm day here again but sure not complaining and enjoying my sunbaths too. We did get rain this afternoon but I got my sunbath in before that though. Today is the one grands 14th birthday and mom gave her the birthday card and money last week so didn’t go down today. School is out for them so mom will see them soon. The grands all keep in touch and this one sent pictures of her ice cream cake her mom for her birthday. “We don’t meet people by accident. They are meant to cross our path for a reason” Left a vote for you ~~Hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Sugar tell Dixie that
her mom needs to go to bed so Sugar is just going to stay with him and Candida and enjoy the afternoon. They can post the story tomorrow.

Sugar asks Dixie what he would like to do? She just loves being here with him and always has fun no matter what they do!

  Hi Dixie
Mom is definitely going to try that fruit filling cake soon. If only Dad liked cooked bananas, she would do it right now. They are so sweet naturally, you would just need to heat them up with a little Splenda Brown Sugar and a dash of water for a nice topping. He hates banana pudding and all the rest, which is a shame since Mom likes it. If she made one she would end up eating the whole thing. Hmmm, apples? It would take less of them than a whole pie, and so Mom wouldn't get bummed out with the peeling and coring before enough were done. That just might be the way to go, since blueberries always end up in a deep dish pie.

Mom doesn't know what she would do if their doc retired. She has been going to him for over 25 years, and Dad about 20. Dad generally despises doctors, so to find one he doesn't call a quack is a major accomplishment. We are not crazy about the other members of his practice, so sure hope he doesn't retire any time soon!!

Well, I may or may not get outside for a sunbath today. It is only 69 degrees out there right now, with a forecast high of 71. Mom thinks it might be warm enough around 2PM, but she just checked and it isn't there now.

Meanwhile the entire house smells so good with all the aromas from Dad's enchilada pie. And it hasn't even gone into the oven yet! Dad is making two of them, but he is baking one after the other because our oven is big enough to do them at the same time. That means the house will smell wonderful for a very long time. And that is definitely a good thing.

C'mon ladies!! We have four more gents entered into the Prom Pic Contest than ladies!! And last month's contest the men outnumbered the females as well. Where is your BC spirit?

  HELLO FROM LITTLE MISS LUCY
Hi Precious Little Dixie,
How are you?? I hope you're doing much better then the last time I heard. That is an absolutely adorable pic of you and your wonderful Mommy.Thank you so much for the lovely hatchday wishes and for BOTD. I am so grateful to you and all my BC friends. So much has happened since we last wrote to you. We've had many bird shows, lots of long-term company, and no computer for a week, or computer problems when we did have one, (as it still crashes at least once everyday!) We’ve also had many birdie boarders while their parronts went on big and little trips. As if all that weren’t enough, another bird arrived at our house a week ago Saturday! It’s a black headed caique by the name of Norman. That makes EIGHT of us!! Poor Mommy, she’s so maxed out! Of course, there’s all the regular day to day activities like doctors’ and dentists’ appointments, and almost constant cleaning! When all is finished, Mommy sits down at the computer, fully intending to blog to you, and what happens? She promptly falls asleep!! But then what does she expect at 11 pm?! This is why she hasn’t been on to blog for me for so long! By the time she’s finished with all her work, she can’t keep her eyes open. I say, “Excuses, excuses!”

Speaking of dentists...last Friday, two days after she was at the dentist's, she broke a tooth, but couldn't get back in until Tuesday. She's lucky that it doesn't hurt. Mommy and I have missed you and your precious Mommy and hope you understand. We so appreciate your regular blogs to us and love you great big bunches!
Love and Hugs from Little Miss Lucy♥♥

  Hi Dixie
It's Ginger.
ADT was here bright and early on Thursday and had the alarm system reprogrammed in less than an hour, at no charge. There's actually not much else going on. Mom cleaned a bunch of our cages while dad cleaned our room. We didn't think it needed cleaning but we were out voted. Today dad is putting the nest boxes back on Blue and Jewel's cage, Skye and Rio's cage, and Cammie and Bourke's cage. Maybe there will be babies this year.
Yesterday mom made her famous Cheesy Garlic Artichoke Dip for a Memorial Day BBQ at her brother's house this afternoon, so we'll all be in lockdown again.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 75 and a low of 55.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Ginger.
