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

Hi! My name is Dixie

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

Keets, Keetsie

21 years old   M

Green-Cheeked Conure

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

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

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

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

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

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

  Pookie and Laka are wondering if Momma Rose can
Smell the pineapple cake in Dixie box on their way home from the airport. Pookie says I bet their talking Momma Rose's ears off about the last minute luau we threw for them. No says Laka, I bet Little Angel is telling her about the fire twirling dancers we saw, yeah she's telling her about them!!

Pookie says yeah and about that Bon fire too and how about those mean fire works display?? You don't see that kind every day, not the kind that we saw and how about that happy face wasn't that neat?? How in the world do you suppose they got to put a happy face in the fire works to explode like that is beyond me!! I'll never figure that on out I tell ya!! Yeah that sure was nice I'm sure they'll never forget that one either!! ;). I sure never will.

Those hula dancers were sure was great and taking me and Dixie up on stage, boy thank God nobody got us on video tape! But I know we sure had fun with them hula girls trynna dance the hula!! Tho embarrassing it sure wad fun trying I gotta admit that I can't speak for Dixie but I think he'd feel the same. :). They sure was pretty tho! ;). Them hips was swaying one way and I was swaying the other it was so much fun I think me and Dixie was laughing half the time instead of dancing, hahahaha now that I think about it. Pookie thinks to himself.

I think they enjoyed checking out the Volcanoes National park too especially the underground caves, the lava tubes, that was neat. Yeah you won't find that in the mainland that's for sure.

I think they had one great honeymoon huh Laka? Yeah but Little Angel would say it was too short. Yeah I agree, they would hafta extend it a little longer next time and bring Momma Rose that way her and Mom Ruthie will have some fun too. Yeah then we all can have fun! :)

Yeah I agree the moms will hafta have mom time too. :). I betcha they will agree on that one yeah me too.

I'll wait till Dixie gives me a hollar to see how their trip home was. Let them get settled before we get at talking. He might get have some birdie jet lag and all,.

Hope their flight wasn't delayed or nothing and Aunty Rose could find them okay.

I'll wait till I hear from Dixie before I give him a call.

  Hi Dixie
We too should be back to normal on Tuesday. Most of the tourists and summer people will be gone. The ones with no children will still be around for a while..
I'm sick and tired of all the rain and t-storms.
Did you know that we live only 50 miles from the Mackinac Bridge and Mackinaw City where you get the ferry to Mackinac Island.
Sounds like your family had a busy but fun day.
I was so happy at the Milonga that you had ramps for your scooter. That was so nice of Kiddo.
Hope you had a nice Labor Day. We didn't have a BBQ today. Instead, northern Michigan had a nasty t-storm and a tornado. Three areas were hit but, no one was hurt just houses, cars, trees. The tornado was 20 miles south of us. We lost several trees on our property. Our power was out because a tree fell on the wires and took them down on the road. This was next door to us. My parronts went to town and came home with chicken. We ate our dinner in the dark with a flash light. I don't like eating in the dark! We are finally with power again ...YAY!

  Hi Dixie
sounds like your mom had a nice labor day. mom worked outside and planted some hibiscus she had bought about 3 weeks ago. she not happy where she planted them but they needed to be planted and next spring she will dig them up and move them to a better spot. they are good for -30F so they should live through the winter.

mpm also just read that lightening bugs(fireflies) are rapidly declining and may become extinct if pesticide use isn't stopped. thats sad isn't it?

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

OH HOW NICE THAT SKIN BRO TOOK YOUR MOM AND NANA AND MET UP WITH SKIN SIS TO EAT OUT. THAT SURE WAS SPECIAL AND THEN ALL WENT SHOPPING TOGETHER. I TAKE IT SKIN BRO HAD THE DAY OFF WORK FORM HIS JOB. I SURE HOPE THAT PETSMART CALLS HIM AND HIRES HIM. HE COULD CALL BACK TO REMIND THEM THAT HE IS STILL INTERESTED IN THE JOB.

NICE THAT YOU HAD A NICE WARM DAY TO ENJOY ON THE DECK. WE SAW ON THE NEWS ABOUT A TORNADO HITTING PART OF MASSACHUSSETTS AND WE WORRIED ABOUT YOU. THE STORM BYPASSED US TODAY EVEN THOUGH THIS MORNING IT WAS REALLY DARK OUT. BY 2PM THE CLOUDS WERE GONE AND THE SUN CAME OUT AND IT WAS 75 DEGREES HERE WITH A BREEZE BUT WAS STILL HUMID.

G-PA MADE HIS FAMOUS BEAK WATERING BURGERS AND COOKED ON THE WEBER GRILL THAT IS OVER 30 YRS OLD. G-MA HAD TO HAVE A BORING STEAK. ONLY TIME WE EAT HAMBUGER IS WHEN ITS G-PA'S BURGERS OR HIS MEATLOAF. THEY ARE SO YUMMY.

MOSTLY IT WAS A RELAXING DAY TODAY. MOM DID GO AND MEET HER TRAINER THIS MORNING FOR A GOOD WORKOUT.

TOMORROW MOM AND G-PA GO TO SEE HIS GI SURGEON TO SET UP FOR HIS HERNIA SURGERY. MOM IS GOING TO ASK THE DR TO MAKE IT AN INPT SURGERY AND NOT SEND HIM HOME THE SAME DAY. MOM KNOWS HE WILL BE HURTING AND IN PAIN AND NOT ABLE TO EAT. SO SHE WANTS HIM TO STAY OVER NIGHT OR EVEN A SECOND NIGHT. IT WOULD BE TOO HARD FOR HER TO TAKE CARE OF G-PA AND G-MA.

NOT MUCH ELSE HAS GONE ON TODAY. JUST A RELAXING DO NOTHING TYPE DAY.

SENDING YOU ALL SWEET BEAKIE KISSES AND WARM WING HUGS.
PRAYERS FOR MOM, DAD, KALLIE, PEEPERS AND CANDIDA.
SPECIAL PRAYERS FOR NANA, SKIN SIS, AND SKIN BRO AND SUPER EXTRA SPECIAL PRAYERS FOR YOU MY SWEET FROTHER DIXIE SO THAT YOU DO NOT SUFFER ANY LEG OR FOOT PAIN.

  Sugar cleans up after their snack~
and props Dixie's legs up onto the Hello Kitty pillow. She massages his legs and asks him how the rest of his day went. She loves that the whole family got together for a BBQ!! Having everyone around is the most special thing and always makes a great memory!!

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

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

  Sugar waddles quietly through the house
She is so excited to finally be here tonight! She waddles around the corner and runs to Dixie! They waddle into the room and Sugar wraps her wings around him. She tells him so how very happy she is to be here with him tonight! She had a fun day but she has been waiting to get over here all day long!!

"How are you tonight? I hope you had a great day! My dad made it home this morning and is enjoying being here. He's been watching a movie about astronauts tonight. I supervised mom cooking dinner and got a lovely piece of tortilla to snack on. It was a boring kind of day but since we were all here together, it was perfect!"

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 two small blackberry pies! He places the pies on napkins while Sugar pours them each a big glass of blackberry smoothie.
The nibble on the pies and sip the smoothies while Sugar shows Dixie the book she has for them tonight!

"This story is called "A Birthday for Bear". In the story it is Bear's birthday but he doesn't want to celebrate it! He doesn't like birthdays. He doesn't like balloon, or parties or presents or anything that has to do with birthdays.
His friend Mouse comes by and brings him an invitation to a birthday party!! Well Bear tells Mouse he doesn't like parties! Mouse tells him it will be fun but Bear says no!
Bear goes back to cleaning his house when he hears a tap at the back door. He opens it and sees a delivery person with balloons! He looks closely and sees that Mouse is holding the balloons! He tells Mouse no balloons and goes back to cleaning. Next he hears a tap at the window and sees a postman! The postman has a big card for him but when he looks closer, he sees that it's Mouse again!! He goes back to cleaning when he hears something at the chimney! It's Santa Claus with a gift for Bear! When bear looks closer, he sees it's Mouse again! He goes back to cleaning and then hears the doorbell! When he opens it there is a big package there! He doesn't see Mouse anywhere! When he opens the package, it is a big chocolate birthday cake! He take the cake to the kitchen and right when he is going to take a taste, Mouse jumps out of the cake!! Bear tells him how much he loves chocolate and thanks him for the cake! Bear decides that not all things about birthdays are bad!"

Sugar and Dixie love the pies and the smoothies! They both agree with Bear that cake is very special and that they love cake!

  Heya, Dixie!
Happy Labor Day! Sounds like you had a great time at the BBQ, too! Mom saw that it is supposed to be in the 60's on Saturday, and she hopes that is not true, as she would really not want to take me out if it is not at least 70. If we have sun, she might. But that it some days away, so hope the weather people are wrong.

It started out as a grey and rainy day, but the clouds parted, the sunshine came through, and even though it was humid the wind that kicked up helped. Mom picked up some things from the store, and then we both took a nice nap. I had a great time tunneling under Mom's shirt while she tried to sleep. Hey, gotta take advantage of Mom being home today. Then we dusted, and she made her turkey burgers (yum) and sauteed onions (oh yeah!), and she ironed clothes. Now it is blog time and I am happily dictating to her while sitting on her shoulder.

Hope you had a wonderful day, too! Mine was superb!!

The BC is slow and throwing errors again. They need to fix this problem. Maybe the tweet Mom sent out on Twitter will shame them into fixing it. Crystal is the one who responds to the emails but the tech support doesn't. Shameful!

Sending you beaky kisses and wing hugs, and know that yours brighten Mom's and my day. Wish we could keep winter from coming, don't you, with the hugs and kisses? That would be so cool!!

Kaji

  Hi Dixie
Glad you had a nice picnic before the rain came and you all got out to enjoy it too. It rained here most of yesterday so I never got out and today was too hot and humid mom said. Maybe tomorrow but looks like storms coming in so maybe not. Everyone that knows me knows that mom is my favorite person in our house. I tolerate dad and he is ok when mom isn’t here but that is about the extent of it. Well every evening dad has his second dinner as mom calls it and always warms something up that is in the frig. Dad is one of those people that eats a lot but stays slim..mom says it drives her nuts he can do that LOL. He usually does this after I go to bed which is fine but if he makes something before that I become his busom buddy but mom says its not usually food I can eat but dad does share the things that are ok for me. Guess he isn’t too bad after all. “A real friend tells you when you have bird food on your beak? Leaving a vote for you…Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Dixie
Last night mom went to Lena's art show and sale, and she bought some paintings and some prints for Christmas gifts.
It rained pretty much all day until late afternoon yesterday, so there was no pool time at all. Today was a different story, though! After doing the main aviary and the small flight aviary this morning, mom got to go to the pool for the last time this summer. It was a gorgeous afternoon, even if it was a bit cloudy here and there.
As for the squirrels, the little girl grey has started eating mash, and today she preferred to eat rather than take formula from the syringe. This morning she drank about half of the formula, then turned her head, so mom squirted the rest into her mash, which she promptly ate. Mom checked at noon, and refilled it, and again at 4, it was empty, so mom refilled it again. She will still get hand fed a few more nights, but she should be back at the center by the end of the week. The little boy fox squirrel opened his eyes today! That means mom can quit stimulating him to go to the bathroom, and in a few days, she can introduce mash to him as well. When she reported their weights this morning, the staff was pleased with their development.
I hope you are having a good Labor day, getting the best picnic of the year in, or whatever else you are doing, and getting lots of sunshine and love. Hugs, Pino

  Hi Dixie
Well, I got in my carrier to go outside today, but I would like to say it was only through an underhanded dirty trick by my mom. I was sitting calmly on her knee in my room resting this morning, when she simply picked me up in one hand and the carrier in the other and put me inside. I was not thrilled, but she did put a nutriberry in there with me.

Mom made her first trip back to the gym this morning, and her trainer had her do the entire workout sitting down! This is to make sure she doesn't engage her abs during the work out and mess with the surgery. She is a rehab specialist, so Mom couldn't have a better trainer. Of course, please tell your mom that there was no zumba for my mom this time, and not for another 3 weeks. She can't mess up what the doctors did. However she did go over and visit with her friends from the class since they were all there, and the teacher said she missed Mom and hopes she heals quickly. That was nice.

The sitting on Mom's shoulder while she blogs for me is off to a shaky start this morning. First time out while she was voting for hatch days and our new BOTM candidate Angel Girl (224627), I proceeded to try and turn her doctor appointment schedule pad into confetti. So back to my room I went, but I then cried so pitifully my mom decided to give me a second chance so right now I am sitting on her chest trying to clean her teeth. Hopefully it will go better this time.

Our new BOTM's campaign sounds very interesting, and Freckles and I will be ready to hit the trail and explore Nova Scotia with her. I hear it is really pretty up there this time of year. So get on over there and start voting!

Did you eat all that pie????! Yup, today is a dudley do nothing day for the parronts and meals will be leftover from the cookout on Saturday. The luau got some major rain yesterday. The parronts stayed under a tent while it pour then mom went inside to thank the hosts, say good bye and pick up her bowls to go and the sun came out! Now today it looks like an overcast day with perhaps more rain. Mom is way behind on room service and the countdown is for my door to be open so I can go and snuggle with dad. My grey fisters are out there for breakfast with Miranda turning her beak up at everything offered, that snot! Enjoy your day with the parronts! Love and winghugs to my best birdie pie, Cookie

  Day 1--Welcome to Cape Breton Island part 1
Hello everybirdie, my name is Angel Girl. I am a member of the SKY Flock, and this month's BOTM candidate. I would like to take this first day to introduce myself a little bit, and outline our month long trip to beautiful Cape Breton Island, Nova, Scotia, Canada.
I arrived at the Sky flock several years ago when my new owner became too afraid of me to keep me. I had lived with my first owner for the first five years of my life. I was born to his father's flock in the Barrie, Ontario area. I was a much loved, and pampered pet, who enjoyed the best of food, and attention. I even have a custom made large cage. When the relationship between my daddy and mommy fell apart I was posted for sale on the internet and ended up in Peterborough, Ontario,.
Why my new owner ever got me will forever be a mystery, but was, in part motivated by my Momma Deb telling her that she had wanted an African Grey for many years and was considering a clutch of Cameroons. My new owner had the very best of intentions, but lacked Parrot handling skills and experience. She was afraid of me, and when I made an escape from my cage, was unable to get me home again, and resorted to using a broom to "herd" me along. I came to hate the broom, as I was daily allowed out, but broomed back to my cage. Eventually I began to attack the broom, and the one holding it aggressively, biting and screaming my displeasure. After several months of war, my owner contacted my Momma Deb and asked her if she would take me in. My Momma Deb was very happy to go get me. She found me cowering in the back of the cage, locked in the back bedroom. I was quickly "caught up" with a towel and placed into a carrier. My cage and I were loaded up, and I was off to my new forever home.
It took a lot of work to get to the place were I trusted Momma Deb. She endured many hard bites, and one attack on that broom she was using to clean the floor. Since Momma Deb didn't give-up, I decided that I would trust her, and have since become Momma's special Girl. I have an extensive vocabulary of words, and sound effects, and I love singing my many songs. Enough about me.
This month we will be exploring Cape Breton Island, along the Cabot Trail by horse-back. IF any-birdie does not have a horse from CHUEY's BOTM Cattle Drive please let me know and we will round up one for you. We will be camping outdoors, enjoying many fun adventures, taking part in some Celtic festivals and games, and maybe even end up sparkled as my Fister Little Angel and Dixie Adler joy us for the trip. Pack up your camping gear, and ready to ride.
See everyone tomorrow as we take flight to Cape Breton. (SKY has transported our horses there by trailer).
Hugs and love
ANGEL GIRL 224627

  Message from QUEEN CHUEY
Howdy everybirdy, Queen Chuey here. I want to thank you all once more for riding the Trail with me. I had lots of fun and adventure this past month. I have a few plans for this upcoming month of September in the Castle. Seeing how well you all have mastered the art of horse riding,roping and the like, I think it only right to hold a RODEO at the Castle. The day and time will be posted both on the Calendar page and my own, also on my cousin ANGEL GIRLS PAGE.


Angel Girl is our September BOTM candidate and I know that you all will enjoy the month with her on Cape Breton Island. This adventuresome month will be narrated in true SKY FLOCK style and humor. It promises to be a fun, informative adventure. I must warn you though,that LITTLE ANGEL and her Hus-bird DIXIE will be joining you , so be prepared for some "SPARKLY" times head. ANGEL GIRL'S page #--224627.
Remember to give those horses some extra oats and molasses, they sure deserve it. Now, if I can only get these cowbird boots off, I'm gonna relax by the pool for a spell. Then enjoy some fine vittles in the Banquet Hall.
Hugs and kisses
Queen Trail Boss Chuey

  Hi Dixie
It's Ginger.
Mom decided to boil the smoked turkey bones yesterday. Wow, did the kitchen ever smell good! She's going to freeze the stock so she can make turkey soup when and if the cold weather ever hits us. She also made more Pico Di Gillo. It was such a hit the last time that she tried it again. And, the longer it sits, the better it gets.
Dad took advantage if mom working in the kitchen and ran the Rug Doctor over the bedroom carpet with just hot water. He thinks he got all the shampoo out of the carpet so it won't be like walking on dried straw.
Today is Labor Day. But dad says there is no way he's going into labor.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 89 and a low of 64.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Ginger

  Hi Dixie
It's Pearl.
Right before dad left the company, he had computer controlled security gates installed. He had them programed to open at 8am when the film shop opened. Well, daylight savings time came around and guess what. the gates didn't open at 8am. The plant manager called dad and wanted him to come in and reprogram the system. Dad said that it would cost them $110 per hour for him to do that. Dad had gone to work for the company that put the gates in. So he asked dad where the manual for the system was. Dad told him that it was sitting by the computer for the system. The manager said it wasn't there could dad bring them another one. Dad said no, but we'll sell you one for $65. The manager was upset but said ok, bring one over. Dad said that it would have to be ordered and would take two weeks to get. The manager was steaming but paid the $110 to have the system reprogramed and paid for a new manual.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Pearl.

  Hi Dixie
That was a fun Milonga Fair. I'm so glad that Kiddo had ramps made for your scooter. We had the cycling problems too. It started around 9pm and I left at 10pm and came back 45 minutes later and still problems.
No no no .... not motorcycles, bicycles! That group comes up every year. It starts downstate in Lansing (Polly & Zippy's city) with 4500 bicycles. They have 3 routes and it's an overnight thing. We get 1500 of them spending the night in our town and then going past our house all of Saturday. They are heading for the Mackinac Bridge walk on Sunday morning. Then on Sunday, another bicycle club goes by most of the day. But, they don't have as many in their group.
It was a lazy, cool and cloudy day (71 degrees) with some rain. I took advantage and had a very long nap. Then, I was ready to go crazy and drive mom nuts ... hehehehe. That was my plan and it worked!
Hugs
Chyna

  Hi Dixie
one of my crickets got loose in the house last night. 3am in the morning and dad is yelling he can't sleep because the cricket somehow managed to find its way into the living room and with the high cathedral ceilings it was having a good old time rubbing its legs together and it was making a super loud chirping because of the echo. mom had to get the duster out and the step ladder and run the duster along the beams to knock it down. once it fell down it shut up so dad shut up.

well Boo Boo and i had the best time ever at the milonga last night. it was so cute to see Pearl win the pie eating contest. who knew such a little bird could eat so much so quickly while standing in the middle of a pie! and of course it was great to see our friend Cookie and Petunia win the pig race .
not much going on around here. mom hasn't been feeling very well but today it rained all day so she decided to clean the filthy house and now she can't stop sneezing.

love Boo Boo

  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 just loves the pie picture and she knows he had lots of fun nibbling on that pie!
She tells him her day was pretty quite. Her mom has to work tonight but will have tomorrow night off. It will be nice to have a break in the middle of her workweek!

Sugar tells Dixie that soon they will be having Hot Cocoa with their bedtime snack! It is already getting cooler at night.

Soon the friends are yawning and stretching their wings. It is time to get some sleep!
Sugar wraps a wing around Dixie and gives him a kiss goodnight.

They say their prayers and include a special on just for Nana. Sugar has her own special prayers just for Dixie. She loves him so very much and wants him to be healthy and happy always! She prays that his legs are not hurting. She thanks the Lord everyday for giving her such a special friend!

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

  Heya, Dixie!
That was the best Milonga County Fair! Think that you did super in the pie eating contest,too--but I think you were supposed to gobble it all down fast. I can tell you were having a great time enjoying every beakful, weren't you? Hehe. I don't blame you--that key lime pie sure looked tasty!

Can't believe it is September! Wow, where did the summer go? Did we have summer? We are not sure. We have humidity and it was around 75 today, but the sun kept coming out from behind the clouds and then would hide behind them all day. Tomorrow will be thunderstorms, as a cool front is on it's way in. Or so they say. Sure hope it is not all day.

It was a nice day with Mom, and I am looking forward to having her home tomorrow. She is going to have to go out for some groceries that she could not get at Wally World yesterday. But other than that, she is home with me, and will have a great day!

Sending you the biggest wing hugs and beaky kisses, and hope you and your Mom have a wonderful day tomorrow--and hope the BBQ happens, too!!

Your buddy,

  Sugar waddles quietly through the house
and round the corner to Dixie's room. She is so happy to be here and can't wait to see him!
Dixie is waiting by the door and Sugar waddles in! She throws her wings around him and hold him tightly. She tells him how very happy she it to be here tonight!

"How are you tonight? I've been waiting all day to get over here and spend some time with you! It was a pretty quiet day but Sunday's usually are. I helped clean the kitchen up and then spent the rest of the day chewing up some wood. It was a nice way to pass the time!"

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 soft peanut butter cookies inside! He places the cookies on napkins for them. Sugar pours them each a big glass of banana smoothie.
They nibble on the cookies and sip the smoothies while Sugar starts to read the book she has for them tonight.

"This story is called "Olivia Goes to Venice". Olivia and her family are taking a vacation in Venice. Her mother tells her it is a city on the water so Olivia starts to pack her water skis and snorkel! Her mother explains that she won't need any of that stuff over in Venice.
When they arrive Olivia is so tired she goes right to sleep. When she wakes up she can not believe what a beautiful city Venice it. They go sightseeing and Olivia thinks they have gotten lost! They keep going over bridges! Her mother tells her that to cross the canal they have to go over these bridges.
Olivia gets hot while walking through the town and asks her mother if they can get some ice cream! She tells her mother that in Venice ice creams is called gelato! The whole family has some gelato and they all love it! They decided to take a gondola ride and when they are done, Olivia thinks it's a good idea to have more gelato! Everywhere they go they stop for more gelato!
Olivia wants to find something to take home with her to remember the trip! She sees a lovely chandelier and want that! Her mother tells her that the chandelier is bigger than Olivia's room! She searches all over and finally decides to pull a stone from an old tower to take home with her! Unfortunately the tower crumbles! The family makes a quick exit back to the airport and heads home! They all had a great time and loved the gelato!"

Sugar and Dixie love the cookies and the smoothies! They both laugh at how much gelato the family ate while visiting Venice!

  Hi Dixie
There is only one neighbor around here that gets the smoke rolling and he is way down by the park but still if mom sees the smoke I dont go outside either. I didnt get outside today anyway cause it rained so much so will see about tomorrow when it comes around. Last night was another grand night at the milonga and so thankful for all that make this event happen for all of us. All the events were so much fun. Towards the end we had a few problems with the BC loading so that is when Suzi and I left to play some games, ride some rides and eat at the fair LOL Glad it worked well for all the events before that though for us. “If your alone, I’ll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I’ll be your shoulder. If you want a hug I’ll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I’ll be your smile. But anytime you need a friend, I’ll just be me.

What a long day! We were in lock down all day. First, Church in morning and then the parronts came home and changed and went to a luau with one of those trifles! We did not get any and now dad is too tired to give me scritches because he was in a horseshoe tournament! What nerve! At least tomorrow they are in for the entire day and I am getting out! We hope your daddy is all finished with his extra work this weekend and has had time to chill with all of your fids! Mom finally got a zucchini nearly the size of the one you are perched on but nothing with tomatoes! Now those parronts are going up to roost and it isn't even 9pm yet! Well, at least we get our tuck in kiss and treat! Love and winghugs, Cookie

  Hi Dixie
Well, I do have to admit the Milonga County Fair is more work than any of the other milongas for my mom. That is why RaneBeau's mom has to help. My mom does all the writing, and then RaneBeaus's mom did the pics for the pig races and face painting and Taz's mom did the pics for the pie eating contest. I noticed that you took your time with your pie, but then Lizzie's key lime pie needs to be savored. It was all a lot of fun.

If your local MB was a brand new one, I would think that would be one that they keep open. The ones at risk I would expect to be the older ones that perhaps need to be remodeled.


Well, I do believe everybirdy had fun at the Milonga County Fair last night. The pig races were very eggciting congrats Cookie and Petunia), the pie eating contest was pretty darned funny (congrats Pearl and Sky...really?) and the music was Sam and the Scruffy Bird's Band usual best. And the food!! 'Nuff said. And a new feature this year was Falco's ring toss which was very popular.

And today is the final day of Chuey's trail ride. I sure have had a wonderful time on this greyt birdy adventure, but don't forget to get on over to her page one last time for that final vote of the month.

As for myself, I am being good and bad. I have refused to get into that tiny carrier for my sunbath two days in a row now, but that thing is just too darned small. Mom will be allowed to pick up the larger carrier on Wednesday, and it's starting to look like that will be my next sun bath. However I'm still being good while she is blogging, and I am sitting on her leg right now as she types for me. That's a whole week! And I was able to attend the milonga in person last night, when I usually get consigned to my room after just a few minutes. Mom is really hoping this behavior keeps up for a while or maybe even forever! (She's dreaming, of course.)

  Day 31--The final Trail to Wyoming
Well, you can bet we sure had a merry time watchin' Bart, and his rustlers tryin' to get that mess off their feathers and cowboy outfits. The harder they tried, the worse mess they got themselves into. Jenny-Lynn just stood there, wings on her hips, laughin' so hard I wondered she didn't fall over. We came outta the brush and from behind them rocks to enjoy the show. Bart was cawin' and cussin' like a crow, but the more he tried, the worse it got. His wings got to stickin to his cowboy hat, then he fell again onto them ants and he was rollin like a dog with fleas.
"Ain't ya gonna help me Jenny-Lynn?" Bart pleaded as he tried in vain to get his wings off his head.
"Nah, I'm kinda enjoyin the show myself." JL sat down on a boulder and watched. The others gave up their fightin' and tryin and just stood their, sticky glop droppin' off in puddles onto their boots.
"Bart, we give up! You can try to take them cows ya gotta mind to, but we quit!" Twitch turned and looked at us, "you can shoot us if ya wanta, but we don't want your herd no more."
"You get, don't let us be seein' any sign of ya ever agin, or we'll be hangin from a rope" I finish and looked at them, grinning widely. "Now vamoose" It took but a few seconds before they began to wobble, and stumble off down the Trail, I had no doubt we'd seen the last of them. "Now Bart, what ya gotta say for yourself. You know the law of the West is hangin' but I don't have no heart for the likes of that. Instead you'll work for Lizzie, do all the dish washin, and ever she has a problem with ya, she's free to toast ya." Bart looked sadly at the mess he was in, and silently nodded his agreement. After much scrubbin in the river he came up as clean as a scoundrel like him could be. He worked quietly and nervously for Lizzie all the way to Wyoming where we cut him loose hopin' he'd learned his lesson. I'm a proud Trail Boss at how well you all learned to rope and ride, herd, and protect the herd of Long-horned Cattle all the way from Texas to Wyoming. You shot, and fought like the very best of them seasoned cow-punchers, ya ought be real proud of yourselves.
At this time I wish to thank each and everyone of you for your awesome support, both by voting daily and your encouraging words. I truly hope you all enjoyed your month long adventure on the Western Trail, and perhaps came away with a little bit of historical information too.
A very special thank you goes out to Momma Deb of the SKY FLOCK for all her photo editing, and assistance, without which I would never have been able to write such an eggciting, and fun adventure. Momma Deb is a real story-teller, and I appreciate her hard work, input and help.
Now, with my last blog posted I am heading back home for a short visit with my own Momma. I know she missed me while we rode the Trail, forged the River and fought the bad-birds. I have missed my hus-bird Mikey D too.
with love and hugs
Trail Boss Chuey

I hope little Carmie is okay, let me know!
You and Little Angel looked awesome riding that scooter last night! I know it was because your little feet are hurting, but it was still awesome, buddy. I am still cleaning peach pie off my feathers, I jumped right into that pie and did my very best.
Once again, the county fair milonga was fantastic! We all had a great time. Falco's booth made a ton of cash, we gave out lots of prizes, too. Cash goes to birdie rescues, as we all know, and the leftover prizes will go there too.
Piglet and Willie had a lot of fun in the races, and he assured her she is a winner and a wonderful piggie. I had peach pie all over myself and had fun in the pie contest, too. Congrats to Pearl for winning that one!
A huge thank you to Kiddo, Ranebeau, Taz, and SamIAm for making the night one to be remembered forever! The pictures helped to make the night complete.
Hope you are having better weather than we are today. It's cool and raining really hard here. We're hoping tomorrow brings some sunshine for the last day at the pool. They changed their late night swim and annual bonfire to last night, because of the predicted weather today, it was a fine idea. Anyway, I hope it's sunny and warm and a lovely day full of cuddles where you are! Hugs, Pino

It's Ginger.
Dad told mom's dad to take the computer back to Staples and have them figure out why the printer software wouldn't load. The computer works fine now, except that the printer icon does not show up in the "Devices" window. That's not right. Mom's dad tried to explain to our dad what Staples did to get the printer to load. But everything was lost in the translation so dad still doesn't know.
We spent the entire Saturday in lockdown. YUCK! Mom and dad went to mom's brother's house for BBQ turkey and Tri-tip. They brought home lots of leftover turkey, BBQ beans and corn on the cob. We're going to get a taste of it today. It was about ten degrees cooler in Huntington Beach so everybody sat outside and enjoyed the afternoon and evening. We were already asleep when mom and dad got home but dad came into our room and said goodnight to all of us.
Today is going to be partly cloudy, with a high of 91 and a low of 66. Mom is going to pick all the meat off the turkey bones and boil the bones for soup stock. The house is going to smell real good today.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Ginger

  Hi Dixie
It's Pearl.
Photo labs run in the "Crisis Management" mode. As long as everything is running smoothly, the managers sit around and just watch things work. But the minute a piece of equipment goes down, they shift into "Crisis Management" mode and start pointing fingers and throwing hissy fits. Never mind the fact that the maintenance crew that dad had were trained well and knew how to fix things, the "Crisis Management" mode dictated that dad MUST be called and disturbed because a piece of HIS equipment stopped operating! And, because a piece of DAD'S equipment disrupted their lazy style of managing the production flow, it just HAS TO BE DAD'S FAULT! Now, if there were no parts in stock to fix the problem, well, dad got raked across the burning coals of Hell because HE didn't keep that one part in stock. Never mind that dad had the best stocked parts room in the company, that one part just HAD to be there. If the part was on back order, that was no excuse. Dad should have been able to foresee the future and make sure that the part was there. No excuses! The plant General Manager understood the situations and backed dad up whenever "Crisis Management" was brought into play. When he left to manage another lab, dad was left with no backup. The Crisis Team took dad's management position away from him and put him back to a technician on the graveyard shift, where he started, twenty years before. By then, dad had had enough and quit. Dad left with a lot of knowledge about how the plant worked and he didn't leave any of the information with them. They kept calling dad and asking for help. Dad finally had to change his phone number and he told them to "....-...!!", well I can't print what he said, here.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Pearl.

Our local ABC station bought an old NOAA radar site on Oat Mountain, about 40 miles north of us. They made such a big deal out of it you'd think their children were marrying into the Royal Family. Anything to boost ratings.

  As Dixie and Little Angel look out the plane
Window they see Laka and Pookie waving bye bye till they look like tiny tiny ants and they can't see them no more and disappear into the clouds.

As they arrive back home Dixie and Little Angel are exhausted from the flight but at least they got some sleep on the way home. Not too much turbulence but a little numbly with some ups and downs like a carnival ride.

As Momma Rose picks them up at the airport they are so glad to see her she hugs them both.

They unpack and Dixie says we had to bring an extra box with all of our stuff that we bought in Hawaii. Well Little Angel has 2 boxes and I have only 1 box hahahaha!!!

Dixie opens up his box and says hey what's this??? Pookie musta snuck this in!! Hey mom!!i

It's for you !! It's from Aunty Ruthie, it's her pineapple cake!! Ooh yummy!!!! Pookie also snuck in some Mac nuts and stuff too!!! Ooh what a guy!!!! :)

Momma Rose says ooh ill hafta email Momma Ruthie and thank her for the cake. :)

Dixie and Little Angel tell Momma Rose all about their trip to Hawaii and the hospitality of Pookie and Laka and their last night party. What a great time they had ! :)

They wanna go back on their first year anniversary now thru tell momma Rose, can we??

Love & hugs,
