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

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..

  Hi Dixie
Today was most unsatisfactory! The parronts ditched us this morning to go to breakfast and then on errands so room service was eggstreamly late! I got really annoyed and flew out of our room to find dad. I sat on his chair in the office waiting to help him shred papers and no dad! He ws downstairs in his workshop. Mom was doing the food and Josh decided to walk out and over to her. She took him on the garden tour (the sun made a surprise appearance for about an hour) skipping the "contemplation bench" then back inside without a bite! Now she is singing that stupid "baby bird" song to him, PU! Mom! You can't carry a tune! Just carry the macaw already! So then everybirdy gets served and mom comes and gets me in the office. Have a new "pouty perch" under dad's chair. She took me downstairs to see him work. We all came upstairs and I flew right to dad. Unfortunately, it was late and he said I had to go and eat. So tomorrow mom will sit and visit with your mom. Love and winghugs, Kookie

  An evening in Paradise
Little Angel and Dixie hold wings as they enter the beautiful tropical restaurant, with its orchids and palm trees lining the patio garden and soft water falls pouring over lava rocks into a pool filled with Koi and water lilies. Armando speaks to the waiter and he leads them to a private garden facing the ocean. It is so beautiful LA stops to take a few photos for her album. There are doves in large golden cages, and roses everywhere she looks.
The food smells make their mouths water. Everybirdie finds a seat around the huge oak table and the chatter and giggles is so loud Dixie can barely hear LA who is seated right next to him. He laughs as he tries to tell LA how pretty she looks tonight. She though he asked her if she would like to go later to fly a kite!

The waiter begin to arrive carrying large platters of food, fruits, pasta dishes with hot spicy bean sauces, and meats of every kind. LA's eyes grow huge as she sees the plate filled with Pine Nuts arrive. She leans over and grabs a few and opens them quickly into her beak. Music begins to playa s a live band joins them in the garden. The atmosphere is magical and romantic. LA kisses Dixie and smiles brightly. She has never felt more happy in her whole life.

Come visit me, SKY, thank you for Jan 17th, 2016 BOTD, Little Angel, JESSE, thank-you for BOTD friends! & SWEETIE.

  Hi Dixie
I think everybirdy is joining in on voting for Laka so she can get her BOTM badge on her page. Whether they blog or not, the votes count and she has a lot more than the month she ran.

Well, Mom went to the gym this morning, and this time she wasn't back home in 15 minutes! Yep, she made it thru the warm up just fine, so Becky said she was ready for a session. Of course, then she made it a balance work out rather than anything more strenuous, but Mom still got a bit sweaty. They chatted between sets so Mom wouldn't get too worn out as well. Becky said she needs to be careful till she builds herself back up, so Mom didn't stay for zumba. She is thinking she will try it on Wednesday afternoon though.

And yay!! I got a sun bath today! It got up to 74 today, and since Mom got me outside right at noon it was warm but not too hot at all. We both sat in the sun for 30 minutes, but then I got antsy so we went back inside. Oh! And I climbed right into my carrier to go out there with no argument. And I could feel you in there with me, buddy. That heated perch works so well for your poor toesies....

Mom was so pleased with me that she shared a hot pastrami and provolone on rye (or half of one anyway) for lunch, and then we had a peanut butter cookie for a treat afterwards. I sure do love those things! Yum!!

  Hi Dixie
I see I won a theme pic! Thanks!!! I'd love the sixth pic in Gabbie's gallery, with the crystal ball. THanks so much! Falco
Mom talked to about 50 people yesterday about the pterosaurs hanging from the overlook. She spelled it wrong yesterday, for anyone looking them up: It's cycnoramphus, with a y not an i. They have weird mouths, tiny teeth only in the front. There were lots of people using the elevator and the stairs on the overlook, just not that many stopping to look at what mom had to show. She even had a cast of a pterodactyl for folks to touch.
After the museum, mom went to Barnes and Noble to use the coupons she had. As usual, it didn't take her long to find things to read.
Today at the center mom had the avian nursery to do. There are some nestlings there who had to eat every 30 minutes, and she had the timer for them, too. The nestlings were a little fuzzy finch, a Carolina wren, and a baby robin. There were also several mallards in there, 10, at least, in 2 cages with decoy moms and mirrors. There was a baby goose with a decoy mom in its cage, too. There were the usual mourning doves and pigeons, as well as an eastern screech owl, a cardinal, and a pileated woodpecker. Mom also set up a cage for a grey catbird, but didn't see it, as it was still in the treatment room.
She was a few minutes late getting out today; that was a lot of birds, with the baby feedings thrown in.
Now, mom is home with us, hoping to finish a book today, and maybe get some laundry going. Tomorrow Falco has a follow up appointment with the vet; she is seeing that girl before rush hour starts, YAY! She's going to see more than 2 feathers growing in, too. Mom says it looks like a bunch of chest feathers are coming. I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino and Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Vote Laka for BOTM, Peppino, vote Laka for BOTM & Falco, vote Laka, 259145, BOTM.

  Flitzer, readying for Dad's trip
Happy Monday. Dad is packing and running around the house setting up "bird-care"stations.
He's nervous about leaving me w Aunt Kathy - they were both miserable to each other last time.
Dad will be gone 5 days, and is praying we all survive the duration.
--
Dad is visiting his Mom in Kentucky - and he'll be flying. He hates travel, hates flying, and hates being away from home.

Hoping all goes well.

  Morning Dixie & aunt Rose, from Jenny Lynn
Once again dad has a doctor appointment at our VA medical clinic, that just cuts the heart out of our day! He will be waiting around a lot to be called into the various specialty rooms, certainly not much fun, but a necessary evil, none the less! We are having another gloomy overcast day with more rain coming, when will it ever end! Our day will be filled with boring stuff, but aunt Denise always entertains us, she is so sweet! Have a great Monday dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Monday love from Jenny, Ms LaLo, Angel Christy, & our crippled daddy

Hopefully, despite the cold rain here, life will return to normal now that mom's drama club is done till November . . . Yesterday I squawked for an early night-night since it was so dark and dismal - that was OK though, since I think mom was ready too ! She and dad did pick up my peas and string beans earlier, and some more calculator paper for my art projects, so I'll be ready for today.

So Anthony is looking at another place ? Sure hope it works out soon for him - it would have been nice for him and sis to be near each other though . . .

Daddy is home today to help g'ma look for a new car. G'pa has a Forester and it's just too big for her to drive (she's about mama Rose's size) She's worried that after g'pa's procedure she'll be too dependent on daddy . . .

I hope mom stays home with you today ! Give her, daddy, nana, the skins and feathers my love ! Cookie

Happy KY Derby week! My parronts are going out to lunch on derby day (May 7) to Farlow's. The lady that owns it is from KY and serves the supper yummy KY Hot brown!!! That is an official derby food. Mom will wear her hat and then come home for all the day's races and eggcitement!
Oh yes, I do love eggs and chicken ... my favorites. I do like to stick my beak in mom's smashed potatoes ... hehehe.
We still need a lot of soaker rain. here. We have crunchy brown grass. We got rain in the winter and that is the dry season. Wonder if we will have our rainy summer season?
It was a very eggciting Sunday for me. My cardinal friend came right up to the screen door to talk with me. Mom & I spoke back to him and he kept talking. I told him to visit anytime.
Hope you had a greyt weekend too.
Hugs
Chyna

  Heya, Dixie!
Skin Bro backed out? Yowsa! Sure hope he can find a place that he likes. I take it things were not included in the apt. next to Skin Sis? Sheesh and gosh, I say. Mom is just shaking her head.

Sounds like you had the same kind of day we had, but you had rain. We had sprinkles--just enough to mess up the windshield on the car. But it was grey and dismal and even though we got to 50, it did not feel much like it.

Mom went by Grandpa's and pulled out more of those maple seedlings. She also got a couple small tree wannabe's, too. When she went inside after that, it was sprinkling, and then again on the way home. Ugh.

However, Mom and I want to wish you all a very happy Lei Day! We love Hawaii, which most of you know, so we always look forward to Lei Day as it means May is here, and we love May! Derby, Mom's Day, Mom's BD, my adoption day...yeah, May is our month.

Not much else going on here. Mom is off to the dentist tomorrow morning. She hopes that she is home when and if the building owner comes by to see the icky cabinet. Grandpa says that they won't replace the cabinet, but Mom hopes he is wrong. We would be happy without a dishwasher, but if they give us a new one, we probably will have to run it every week. Ugh.

Wing hugs coming your way, and your Mom's and Kacey's, along with our good thoughts and prayers that you are doing well. And good thoughts and prayers for Nana, your Dad and the Skins. (We hope Skin Bro finds something soon--grass not always greener than what he saw at Skin Sis's building.)

  Hi Dixie
Well another cool gloomy day here and the sky was really dark off and on looking like it could rain any minute. Because of that the parronts never cooked on. Those evil weather guessers changed the forecast from what they first said. They made it seem like it would be a half way decent day thats why mom was planning on the cook out then all of a sudden the forecast changed to a yucky day. Oh well guess there is still the whole upcoming summer to cook out.
Another full day of having mom home she never left once so you know I was happy.
Did skin bro get a moved? That's always such a busy stressing time. One never realizes how they have until they start packing it up.
Hope you guys had a great day. Have a good night buddy.

That is funny how Candida jumps in the dish water and then flys to dad and helps him get wet too LOL. The numbers on the new CC are different from the old ones so the old ones cant be used any more anyway. They were closed out.I knew mom didn’t get those feathers cut short enough! Yep she went today and flew off. After she got us all breakfast (her, dad and me) and my bean mix made and a bowl of fruit made in the frig for dad to give me she went to pick up the one grand and then to skin sis and picked her and that grand up and they went shopping. The one grand is going to the 8th grade farewell event but the other grand doesn’t want to go. Really neither wants to get all dressed up to go but some friends are talking the grand into going so she needed a dress for the occasion. The grands pitching coach is getting married in October so imagine the grand will wear it then too. Mom got dad a couple pair of jeans there since mom can usually find his size there in the brand he likes. I was glad that dad was home with me and yep I got that bowl of fruit in the afternoon. I was glad when I heard mom pull in the garage though!! “A memory last forever never does it die. True friends stay together and never say goodbye.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Dixie
Well, Mom abandoned me right after breakfast to go put gas in Gloria before the cheap station got too busy. And then she went grocery shopping with Dad, but I forgive her for that since she brings home my sugar snap peas, nanners and grapes. However she also brought home a salad for lunch, and although she expected me to enjoy sharing it since it had corn and beans (Southwestern style chicken salad), I was not really impressed. Amazingly I did eat a tiny piece of lettuce, but the second one I picked up ended up on Mom's shoulder.

And although it is warm enough for a sunbath today, Dad suggested Mom wait one more day before sitting out in the sun to make sure the antibiotic is out of her system completely. A sunburn right now would not be fun, eggspecially since she is pretty sure she will be good to go for the gym tomorrow (no zumba yet, though). I wouldn't cooperate about getting into my carrier anyway, so Mom took that as a sign that a sunbath was not a good idea today.

And besides Dad is out there mowing the lawn while Mom blogs for me. I get very quiet and settle down out of sight of the window in my room when he is out there with that noisy machine. I don't like it at all. He just finished though, and Mom is almost done with my blogging so I will get her back in just a couple of minutes.

BooBoo had a greyt idea: since we do not have a candidate for BOTM this month, why don't we all vote for Laka again so she can get her BOTM plaque from BC. In case you didn't know, apparently BC has started doing that again, and Grey Bird actually received his plaque. Laka and Kacey & Mikey should deserve the same recognition.

  Hi Dixie
Elvis did it again and flew at mom's head so she grabbed him and off to the office they went where mom trimmed his nails. Dad was bad and said he needs a wing trim as well. Mom said she would never do that again no matter how angry he make he. She would never take away anybirdy's gift of flight here. It is a do nothing day and nobirdy feels like doing anything here including mom. I didn't feel like coming out today, either. Mom has had our light on i our room to feel better and dad build a fire. Mom also put our heat on again today. She went and made some walnut brownies an eggcuse to put the oven on and also warm up the house. That spicy Zupreem is different. I tossed the chilies on my floor. Perhaps I will consider them for later. My complaint is the Sunseed mix. I bet there is some old Italian guy filling the mix with the dry bay leaves for an eggstra nice garnish...never mine the bay leaves...lets have some pasta, lasagne, tortellini or something nice. Mom tossed out some left over lasagne yesterday that just was not eaten by the parronts...would have gone real nice in here. Instead mom tosses it out for Zoltan the crow and his family who flew off with an enormous piece. Dad just sat there and laughed! Supposed to rain all week so that means we have the parronts home and inside with us. Will had to check the office for some more shredding stuff with dad Love and winghugs, Kookie

  Dixie and Sugar can't stop laughing over the spider and snake. How could Butterfly think they were Monkey's mom! Candida says the Macaw was bright red with a beak so she really should have known that was not his mom! The friends figure that since Butterfly's babies did not look like her she did not realize that Little Monkey would look just like his mom!

The friends clean up after their snack and head off to the TV room. Sugar gets Dixie comfortable on the sofa while Candida turns on the Food Network. Hey sit and watch cooking shows while they are waiting for dinner.
Sugar tells them it was pretty boring at her house. Mom made some spaghetti and know has to get the kitchen cleaned up then pick Ian up before she can head off to bed. She has had a very hard time staying awake today.
McKenzie was busy getting into trouble today. She can not seem to find something she wants to do! Sugar tells her friend that she likes to have nice quiet Sundays not one chasing the dog around.
Mom had a lot to do last night but managed to get it done. It's clearance week so she will be busy. She has Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday off this week since Captain America comes out on Thursday evening and Ian got them tickets so they are going to the 9 pm showing. I will be stuck in the night cage! The dog will be in her crate so it will just be Merlin who is out.

The friend enjoy the cooking shows but soon have heavy eyes. When it is time for Dinner, Aunt Rose finds them all napping on the sofa!

thank Aunt Rose for the fabulous lunch! They grab the bag of pretzels and some juice boxes. They waddle off into the play tent and snuggle close together. They nibble on pretzels and sip their juice while Sugar starts to read.

"This book is called "Monkey Puzzle". Little Monkey is very sad. He can't find his mom! A butterfly tells him not to cry. She will help him find his mom. Little Monkey tells the butterfly that his mom is big! Bigger than him!
Butterfly tells him she knows just where his mom is! She leads him through the forest and in a clearing is.....an elephant!
No No No says Little Monkey. That's not my mom! She is not grey and does not have a trunk for baggy knees! My mom likes to hang from trees! Oh says the butterfly! I know just where she is!
Up in the tree is a snake wrapped around a branch! No No No says Little Monkey! That is a snake My mom has legs and snakes don't.
Butterfly takes him farther into the forest to another tree! There on the tree is a spider spinning her web. No No No says Little Monkey. That is a spider! My mom likes to eat fruit not flies and she likes to be high up in the tree!
Well says butterfly. Look up and you will see your mom! Little Monkey looks up and sees a Macaw. No No No says Little Monkey. That is a parrot! My mom has a nose not a beak and no feathers either. She doesn't fly. She like to leap.
Well why didn't you tell me! She is down by the pond!
Butterfly and Little Monkey go to the pond but all Little Monkey sees is a frog! No No No says Little Monkey. My mom is brown like me, not green! She is brown and furry and nice to cuddle.
Butterfly takes him to another tree and there is a bat! Brown and furry and hanging from the tree! No No No says Little Monkey! That is a bat. It has wings and my mom does not. She is much bigger too!
Butterfly tells him his mother is by the river having a drink! When Little Monkey gets there the elephant is getting a drink!
No No No says Little Monkey. That is the elephant again! He tells Butterfly that he looks like his mom! She asks him why he didn't tell her sooner. Little Monkey tells there that everyone knows that kids look like their parent! Butterfly shows him some caterpillars resting on the branches of a bush! These are her babies and they don't look anything like her.
After more searching Little Monkey sees a monkey sitting by the tree! There is your mom says Butterfly!
Oh that is my dad, not my mom!
Little Monkey runs to his dad! Dad tells him it is time to go home and see mom!
Off they go to home and there is mom waiting for them. Little Monkey thanks Butterfly for her help. He is very happy to see mom!"

  Hi Dixie
It's Ginger.
Dad finally worked on the front lawn and at least part of it looks better. He's going to try to get more done today. Not sure how much because their friends from Colorado will be here today. Not sure how much we'll be on the BC this next week. It depends on how busy mom and dad are with their friends.
Mom made homemade gumbo last night. Sure did smell good but dad said we couldn't have any because it was too spicy for us. Hey, we like spicy!
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 76 and a low of 53.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Ginger.

  Dixie and Little Angel visit Brazil
LA smiles at Dixie then a look crosses her face. "I have a plan" LA says then leaving Dixie resting in the cart, she makes her way through the milling group of tourists and Armando's family. She glimpses Armando across the room, and weaves quickly towards him.
"Dixie and I are exhausted. Why don't we head back to the hotel for a rest. Around 7 tonight we can all go out for dinner in one of the outdoor patio gardens, and make our plans for tomorrow."
Armando grins and agrees readily being exhausted himself. " OK, everyone, lets all head back to the hotel. We are having a siesta" he explains the plans in detail. Everyone cheers as they gather their belongings, bags of souvenirs and begin their trip up the winding, stone paths to the Hotel on the edge of the ocean. LA cheers when she sees the hotel and smiles at Dixie warmly as she pulls the little cart along the path.
LA and Dixie can barely keep their eyes open on the ride up the elevator. Everyone piles into the room, and finds a stop to perch as LA and Dixie flop onto their soft, comfy bed. In a matter of minutes they are fast asleep. The room quickly quietly as tired friends nod of to a dream-filled sleep.
A little past seven Dixie awakens with a start. HE looks around the room, trying to focus on the decor. then he realizes where he is, and giggles. LA wakes up and smiles at Dixie. " I did that too" she says softly. It felt so odd being in a different place when they woke up, everything so different and new. Dixie sits up and stretches. The nap has helped his sore feet feel much better. LA gently rubs the aching toes, helping the muscles to relax. Her gentle touch eases Dixie's pain enough, he is able to stand up and make his way to the sofa. LA tidies the bed and follows him. They sit on the sofa, waiting for the others to awaken.It isn't too long before the room is once more alive with chatter, laughter and music.
"OK, let's go to the ocean side restaurant for supper" Armando says over the rising noise. Leading the way LA and Dixie, seated in his comfy cart, follow along at a easy waddle. The sites are still so new and exciting it is hard to take them all in at once. The ocean sparkles with the lights of the city off the waves as they roll ashore along the white sand beach.

  Hi Dixie
Wow, we hope they fixed a lot of pot roast so everyone got a good dinner. That had to be a lot of work. I guess mom and dad didn't stay?
Mom went with her niece to see the opera last night. The scenery was really cute, it looked very 2 dimensional, and was mostly drawn onto a white background, so looked very childlike and unsophisticated. The music was typical Stravinsky, mom liked it a lot. In fact, she enjoyed the music more than the singing, because the music was playful in spots. The cast was very well matched vocally, and the chorus did a bang up job! For an opera written in 1951, it was pretty good. Mom doesn't usually like contemporary works like that. They had dinner at Nicky's Thai Kitchen before the performance, too.
Today mom has to do a 3 hour spotlight at the new pterosaurs in Dinosaur hall. They are cicnorhamphus, and they are hanging above the hall. Mom thinks she'll be on the second floor balcony, so people can see them better. They are pretty cool pterosaurs, have beaks that indicate they were filter feeders, something like flamingos.
I think after the museum, mom will head to Barnes and Noble, then come home. I hope you are having a good day there. It's gloomy here, and raining off and on. Get lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Peppino and Falco

  good morning Dixie
Rain here in NY today . . . but that's OK, cause there's not a lot going on. Mom is recovering from last night. The show went really well - only one little actor missed a line, and it wasn't an important one. The cast party was LOUD. She was even able to eat a slice of pizza ! ! Thank goodness in junior high there's only one performance unlike high schools which do two full weekends. Don't think she could do that ! Me either - I do love my daddy, but he's not a very good tucker inner and mom had to fix my blankee when she got home about half past midnight.

Now things can get back (sort of) to normal here ! I hope ! But, like aunt Karen said - it'll be time to wrap up the school year soon and that means extra work . . . but at least it means summer is almost here ! I bet all the tourists are making plans to invade your town !

She will go out later to get me my fresh veggies - yesterday she got hers and daddy's foods. I'll try to be a good boy and let her rest . . .you have a good day ! love to you, mom, dad, nana, the skins (did Anthony get all moved in ?), and the feathers :) Hugs from Cookie

Hello dear friends-

Dad's making preparations to leave on his short vacation. Of course it will not seem short for either of us.
-
Aunt Kathy, the Bird-Sitter, will be lookin in on me, and my dear Uncle Geno promises to visit as well, so they will help pass the time....but nothing's the same without Dad. It's gonna be tough.
I have Dad trained for when it's time for fruit, when it's time for seeds. . .
Dad keeps telling me to be nice - last time I was so sad and angry and everything else that I was miserable to the bird-sitter . . . .
= = =
Saturday was a nice day. Dad and Uncle Geno took a short drive into the country.
Today is rainy and Dad will be at the movies in the afternoon.

....

Come visit me, Mario Adler & Flitzer w Uncle Geno.

  Hi Dixie!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight is the last night! I am so excited! Mom was finally able to pick up all of the bird toy parts that have been scattered around her room for the past month. She was happy about that! Haha! Tonight we are making a toy that looks like bird. You will need,

- Cardboard
- Coffee filters
- Finger traps
- Beads
- Little bird toy trinket pieces
- Safe stringing material
- OPTIONAL white paper

Take a large piece of cardboard and cut out a nice sized bird head and body. Once you have the body cut out, take a piece of string and knot the bottom, then poke a hole in sorta in the middle of your cutouts body, but a little lower. String your string through the hole, with the knot being on the back side. Take some coffee filters, and cut the sides into strips and poke holes in the middles. String those on like you would for a puff, one facing down, one facing up, and so on, until it is a nice sized puff on the body. String on a bead and knot it. Now poke a hole in the middle of the cutout near the bottom. Take a piece of string and knot them bottom, then string it through the hole with the knot on the front side (you won't see it, it will be under the puff). Take three finger traps, and string those on. Then string on a bead and knot it tight. Once they are tied, you can stick them out in different directions like a tail. For the head, it will be different for everyone depending on what kind of bird you want it to look like. We did a Green Cheek Conure. If you want an eye ring, cut out a small oval and poke a hole in the middle. Then to attach the eye, poke a hole on the cutout where you want it to be, take a piece of string and tie a knot at the bottom, string it through, and then string on the paper, and then a dark bead. Then knot it. To put on markings, you will do the same thing with the holes and string. Just add them (beads and random toy pieces) however you'd like in what ever colors you want. To make it so that you can hang it, you can make a loop, make a small hole in the cutouts head, and then string the loop through. Or, you can tie a bagel to a piece of string, then make a small hole in the cutout under the puff and string it through the hole with the bagel on the back side. Then knot it. You can then attach it by sticking the bagel through the cage bars and turning it the opposite way so that it stays.

I will post a picture of both the front and back sides of this toy in my gallery.

Thank you SO much for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

HI MY SWEET FIBLINGS AND COUSINS. WE HAD A VERY DREARY RAINY DAY ALL DAY HERE AND TOMORROW WILL NOT BE MUCH BETTER.

MOM HAD TO UNPACK AND PUT AWAY ALL OF G-MA'S STUFF. G-MA ADMITTED THAT SHE DIDN'T WEAR HALF OF WHAT SHE TOOK. SO MOM SPENT AN HOUR AND HALF WORKING ON THAT THIS MORNING. TOMORROW WILL BE DOING LAUNDRY.

G-MA ONLY BROUGHT HOME $50 AND SOME CREDIT CARD BILLS. SHE BOUGHT A COUPLE T-SHIRTS, SOME PINS, EARRINGS, AND KEY CHAINS. SHE CHARGED ALL THAT AND IT WAS NOT CHEAP. SO G-PA WAS NOT HAPPY ABOUT THAT. MOM TOLD G-MA NOT TO BUY ANY T-SHIRTS AS SHE HAS PLENTY AND SHE LIKES BIRD SHIRTS, NOT ONES THAT SAY LAS VEGAS ON THEM. THE PIN G-MA BOUGHT FOR HER WAS NICE, IT WAS A BIRD. THE KEY CHAIN SHE DIDN'T NEED AS SHE HAS OVER 10 OF THEM WITH MOST BEING BIRDIE KEY CHAINS. SOME ARE FROM ALASKA TOO AND BANFF CANADA.

SO FAR MOM'S SISTER IS STAYING HOME BUT SHE STILL SOUNDS BAD. IF ITS NOT RAINING, WHICH IT SUPPOSED TO, G-MA WANTS TO GO SEE HER. I THINK NOT.

MOM MADE A GREAT DINNER TONIGHT. SHE MADE BAKED CHICKEN WITH PINEAPPLE THEN MADE SOME FRIED RICE WITH SLICED WATER CHESTNUTS AND PINEAPPLE CHUNKS IN IT. IT WAS YUMMY. G-MA ATE IT BUT HAS SAID THAT SHE WANTS A TURKEY BURGER FOR TOMORROW. SO THE CHICKEN WILL LAST MOM AND G-PA A COUPLE DAYS. ITS HARD TO GET G-MA TO EAT WHAT MOM COOKS.

IT SURE WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE IF THE NEIGHBOR HAD WAITED TO A DECENT HOUR TO START ALL THAT NOISE WITH TEH DRIVEWAY. NOT VERY CONSIDERATE.

THATS GREAT NEWS THAT SKIN BRO NOW LIVES NEXT TO SKIN SIS. HOPE HE GOT EVERYTHING MOVED IN. DID YOUR DAD HAVE TO HELP OR DID HE DO IT ON HIS OWN?

HOPE YOU GUYS HAD A NICE RELAXING BORING DAY AT HOME.

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

PRAYERS FOR ALL TO BE SAFE AND WARM, HAPPY AND HEALTHY AS CAN BE AND NOT TO BE IN ANY PAIN.
PRAYERS FOR NANA TO STAY STRONG AND NOT TO SUFFER SUCH PAIN. MAY SHE GET HER DR'S APPT MADE AND CAN GET MORE TRAMADOL AND LIDODERM PAIN PATCHES.
EXTRA SPECIAL PRAYERS ALWAYS FOR YOU MY SWEET DIXIE SO THAT YOU STAY STRONG AND HEALTHY AND NOT SUFFER PAIN, SEIZURES OR CRAMPS AND THAT YOUR EYE AND NARES HEALS.

  Hi Dixie
yes the feathers I barber are in a V shape too.That is great that mom and Nana got to do some quilting! Know they enjoyed that too.
Today mom was home all day though she was downstairs cleaning a little bit so I had to be in my condo then. Maybe this feather trim is keeping her home now.
After she got her feather trim yesterday all her curls were gone so she had to give herself another perm when she got home. When mom does that she hides out in the back room till she is done because she doesn’t want me around the stinky stuff. Good it don’t take her long though and a double good cause dad was home so I could be out of the condo at least.
I did get my bath today and mom blow dried me cause it was a little chilly and she don’t want me getting chilled. I am still fixing my feathers and picking out all those little white fuzzies too.
Mom got her duplicate drivers license today in the mail so she will put those back and use her original ones though. She has to get new ones next year for her birthday present anyway LOL. “A memory last forever never does it die. True friends stay together and never say goodbye.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Dixie
Mom is very sad about Papa. he has wing droop and very lethargic. She tried to get an appointment with our Dr Linda and she cannot see him until Wednesday. Mom will go back up and get him ready for his appointment. She held him in her lap for 2 hours and did his pin feather, rubbing him and massaging him just like she does with many of us. She prepared his parronts for the worst case scenario and told them to pray and pray for the best outcome. Merlin continues to be a brat. We missed our birdiecures today because mom made a run to the feed store for our pellets of which there were non so she ordered them and came home with some spicy Zupreem stuff which we will taste test tomorrow. I did not even get any time out for Aunt jeanne today and yesterday I made the mistake of flying over on the Blue's condo and guess what? Mom said he "finally got a pair" and tried to bite my feetsies when I was trespassing. Mom of course was too quick and grabbed me and shoved me out of the room and told me to go and shred with dad in the office. Mom went to clean Moggie's suite and had to move Doo's condo to get to it and Doo nailed mom on her index finger. So that is the index finger courtesy of Doo, mom's "signal bird finger" by Josh, the right hand and wrist by Merlin and her left pinky by Josh also. However, Josh tells mom "I love you" so he gets away with all that! We have an Eastern Phoebe nesting on our front porch, a pair of bluebirds in a nest box and song sparrows nesting in the holly out front. Yesterday day was "Miranda Day" in the legal world....so mom told old white lace bloomers "she has the right to be a bird and if she gives up that right she can go food shopping and pay taxes"....hhahhahahahahh..like Miranda is going to do that! She is still floor walking and stalking attacking the bloom and the "poop wipe cloth"...no I would not be beaking THAT thingy! That is disgusting! So that is all the news that is fit to print and poop on along with dad's shirt! Hope your eye feels better! Love and winghugs, Kookie

  Hi Dixie
Neither Mom nor Dad are fans of mint flavor, so Mom should have probably told the barista at Starbuck's to hold the mint in that tea. Mom will just stick with her Chai Latte cold from here on out.

Well, Mom took her last antibiotic today, and the cough is almost gone. Hopefully by the time she tries the gym again on Monday, it will actually work. She is feeling a lot better. And now that she is done with the antibiotic and can get out in the sun tomorrow, hopefully the weather will cooperate and the sun will shine for us. Right now it's pretty windy, and only 71. However a warm up is supposed to begin tomorrow!! Perfect timing, right? I sure do wish you were here with me for a sunbath. I will wish you here, OK?

Mom abandoned me this morning to go to the bank with Dad and deposit her two tax checks, plus he had his tax checks and a couple of reimbursements from insurance. Since she was not gone very long, I did forgive her.

Fortunately for me Mom is rereading one of her favorite book series, and since she is just on book one of four I am getting lots of Mom time. Plus we shared a half sandwich of warm pastrami and provolone on sourdough for lunch. I really do love pastrami, probably the best of all the meats I get to share with my mom. She is pretty fond of it too, but we both get enough. Then we shared a tapioca pudding cup for dessert! Now that is definitely high on my list of favorite treats. Love that stuff!!

Yeah me too we worked up an appetite.

Oooh look pineapple cake!!!! Here juice box ! They gulp the juice down as it sure was a hot day in the sand.

  Dixie, Sugar and Candida love the scones and the juice. They all giggle at the story of Shark. He really seems to be pretty scared of spiders. Sugar thinks it's funny that something so big would be afraid of something so small!

The friends kick back and pull out some cards. They decide to play crazy 8's until lunch is ready.
Sugar asks Dixie how is eyes are feeling. She has been praying that they will heal soon. She knows he is very uncomfortable and she hates that.
Sugar tells them that yesterday her mom had to run down to the bank and was going to do it before Ian got off so she could just pick him up and head home but her aunt called. She went to get Ian and then went to the bank. They stopped at the Dollar tree on the way home to get some snacks. They had pretzels this week so mom got a bag of those. She got the little wafer cookies in individual packs again. Sugar really likes those.
Her mom had made a big pot of pinto beans the day before so when she got home she made chili. The rest of the beans are going to be refried beans. Mom has never made them before so hopefully they turn out well. They don't seem difficult. Moms store had the 10 pack of Mission flour tortillas 10 for $10 so mom got a few of those so they can make burritos with the beans.
This morning her mom is finishing up some laundry and is going to get to bed early today. Ian caught Jennifer's cold so they are both sniffling and sneezing and coughing now! Mom got more dayquil at work last night but did not know they were out of nyquil also so mom will have to go across the street to Walgreens and get more before she goes to bed. Mom doesn't take that stuff so she never knows when they run out! Mom put a magnetic pad of paper on the side of the fridge for everyone to write down what we need! Guess they forgot!

The friends continue to play cards and talk until Aunt Rose calls them for lunch!
Sugar thanks them all for having her over and for their awesome hospitality! Sugar tells them she is so very blessed to have such awesome friends!

  Sugar waddles down the hallway and calls
to Dixie and Candida! She runs into the bird room and throws her wings around them! She gives Dixie a gentle hug and hugs Candida too.
I am so sorry I wasn't here last night! Mom was going to get up early to get our story done and ended up getting up really late. The alarm never went off! Mom woke up at 10:01 and she has to leave at 10:30!! It was a mad rush to get out the door and I never even got to go out to the play cage and have a bedtime snack! Now mom has to figure out if she set the clock wrong of if the clock is broken. It's older than Ian so it might have just gotten worn out!

The friends snuggle together in the play tent. Sugar opens up her Hello Kitty lunch box and pulls out 3 cranberry orange scones. Dixie puts them on napkins for them. Sugar gives everyone a juice box and the settle back to have a snack and hear the story!

"This story is called "I Am Shark". Shark thinks he is the most awesome animal ever! He is not afraid of anything. When Shark gets a shot he doesn't even cry and he can watch scary movies without getting scared!
Some little fish asks him if he is afraid of anything! Shark says nope! What about a dinosaur? If a dinosaur saw me you know what he would be? Scared!
The little fish says not even squid or a creepy spider? Spiders? Spiders? yells Shark. Are there spiders around here? Is there a spider on me?? No says the little fish, I was just asking if you were afraid of them! Shark tells him of course not! He is not afraid of squid either! A squid came by one day looking very tough but when he got a look at Sharks teeth, the squid inked all over himself! It was embarrassing!
The little fish asks Shark if he is afraid of the dark. Everyone is afraid of the dark! Are there creepy spiders? No says the little fish, just dark! Nope! Just close your eyes! The dark is afraid of me!
What about a big bear asks little fish. Is the bear holding a spider? asks Shark. No says little fish, just a big bear! Well I would show him my teeth and he would run away!
Everyone is afraid of something says little fish. Not me says Shark. What about spiders? Who said I was afraid of spiders asks Shark. If I saw a big creepy spider I would just swim the other way as fast as I could! That is not being afraid. That is being smart!
What are you guys afraid of asked Shark! Well sharks of course! Sharks? That's just silly."

We hope your nare and eye are getting better. We are so worried about you. Your mom has a ton of patience to work with you and get you better.
Falco's update: Mom wasn't going to, but she posted 2 pics of me in my collar, because some birdies asked to see. As you can see, it's like a turtleneck. I hope it comes off soon, because it's keeping me from getting spritzed or getting a bath. Mom is afraid to wet it, thinking that might damage my skin under it. I feel pretty good, though. Hugs, Falco
Today there's not much going on. It's a beautiful day outside, though. Mom walked the dogs in sunshine! She'll spend part of today getting ready for the opera tonight. Aunt Ginny can't go with her, so her niece Jessica is going to pick mom up for dinner and the opera. The opera is The Rake's Progress, which mom has never heard. It's by Igor Stravinsky, who wrote some controversial music in his day, like the Firebird and the Rite of Spring. Those are both ballets that mom likes, so hopefully the opera will be at least interesting.
I hope you are having a great day today, getting some sun and lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino and Falco

  Hi Dixie
It's Ginger.
Guess what? It rained last night. Dad never saw it coming. We got a "soaking" 0.03 inches. Dad never made it out to mow the front yard yesterday and today it's too wet to mow. Their friends will be in tomorrow so dad may try to get it all done in one day. Yeah, RIGHT!
Mom sent dad back to Costco yesterday. The coupons expire today and mom wanted things. Well, so did everybody else in La Habra and dad swears they were all at Costco. It took dad almost 2 hours to get the stuff and get home and he was not a happy shopper. But mom was starting to fix a pork butt roast with roasted veggies so dad mellowed out real fast. It's one of his favorites.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 71 and a low of 50. Maybe it will rain some more.
QUESTION:
If mom was cooking a pork butt roast, does that mean that there is a hog running around somewhere that can't sit down?
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Ginger.

Dance, laugh and celebrate the night away and into the start of their second day in Brazil. Armando's family certainly knows how to throw a party complete with all the extras. Dixie sits down on the sofa for a moment. LA joins him as they watch the dancing and enjoy the music for just a moment. When they awaken, the room is brightly filled with sunshine and as their eyes open they see birdies sleeping on every inch of floor and furniture. LA yawns and stretches her wings as she smiles recalling the night before. Dixie is sleepily checking out the room. He can't believe they partied all night until dawn. The clock on the wall says it is 2 in the afternoon now. He looks at LA and giggles." What a welcome"

The others begin to rouse and stretch and before long every one is up, and the clean up is fully underway. With so many wings joined in, it doesn't take long to tidy up and have everything into place. They stop to eat some left-overs for lunch before heading off for the day to explore the city and enjoy the many new sites and sounds that are what Brazil is all about.

Little Angel puts on her pretty pink sun dress and a soft white hat to protect her skin from all the sunlight. Dixie grabs his hat and sunglasses to keep his eyes safe and they head off with their friends in a rather noisy group towards the market square where a great number of booths are set up selling everything from sunglasses, purses to souvenirs. They wander around the countless displays, buying gifts for family and friends back home. After several fun hours they decide to stop at an outdoor cafe for some real Brazilian coffee and pastries. The huge group settle around the many patio tables in lively chattering and laughter.
LA & Dixie enjoy their break in activity and sit quietly watching all the people passing by, listening to the Latino music being played live out in the market. They are very tired after the long flight, and all night party but know they won't have much time to rest as they soon head off to explore a few more sites. Dixie rests his head on LA's shoulder, closing his eyes for a nap. It is short but he feels much better afterwards. Armando leaves the family at the cafe and returns with a special cart for Dixie so he won't have to walk on his sore feet anymore.

After a short break they all move off to see further sites including a very old Church with hand painted walls and ceilings. LA and Dixie are enjoying their trip, but can't wait toget back tot he hotel for a few hours of sleep.

  hi Dixie doodle !
What a lovely afternoon yesterday ! Mom came straight home from school plopped down on the sofa and skritched my head :) When I started squawking, she brought me my bath tub and we both got soaked before settling down for a nice long talk and the singing of some songs :) Daddy made burritos for dinner so mom didn't even have to leave me to fix dinner ! ! Then I got apple for dessert ! ! Life is good !

It'll be even better after the weekend of drama club ! This morning she and dad will do some grocery shopping before she heads back to school to start getting everything ready. I'll bet she'll even try to take a nap - cause it'll be a mighty late night ! Cast party till midnight ! Two adults with 47 young teens (6-8 grade) ! Pretty scary !

She's been trying lots of foods and the only thing she's still having trouble eating is breads ! You'd think that since it's soft, it would be easy - but it sticks to her teeth . . . sheesh ! She'll be glad when everything is done ! I just hope it's before corn on the cob season starts ! ! !

Well, you have a great Saturday ! Hugs and beaky kisses to mom, dad, nana, the skins and the feathers in your house. See you tomorrow :) love Cookie

  Hi Dixie
I must say that Candida is a diva birdie! LOL! She is the queen! All hail ... hehehehe!
So glad that your eye is doing better. make sure you don't touch it ... let it heal. My mom saw her new doc today and liked her. She will have to see two other docs soon for her "C" check ups.
Well, I think it should be in the 80's and not 90's this early. I expect 90's in June, July, August for sure. But, we haven't had any rain. The little that has been around misses our area.
My parronts are learning some back roads ... today was perfect going to mom's doc ... a trip to Venice ... but shorter and less traffic.
Not much going on here. It was another sunny day of 91 and still no rain. I was busy chewing up some wood toys and I'm proud of the artistic design on the floor. It looks greyt to me.
Mom was outside watering the plants and someone came up to her ... it was Bunni. He just watched her and walked along with her for a while. I guess I should tell him that I do the supervising around here, it's my job.
Hugs

  Hi Dixie
glad your moms eye was ok after that stick poking. once mom was walking the dog and was about 3 blocks from the house when a yellow jacket flew into her eye and stung the corner of moms eye. mom had no choice but to pick up the dog in one arm and cup her eye with the other hand and walk the 3 blocks home and then had dad peel back her eyelid and remove the yellow jacket which was still alive. mom doesn't remember much after that except she never went to the doctor about it. she thinks maybe her eye swelled shut but can't remember. it felt so much better after dad got the bee out. for some reason bugs like to fly into moms eyes so she always has sunglasses on outside.

love Boo Boo

  Hi Dixie!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we will be making a shreddable toy that looks like a person. You will need,

- A wiffle ball
- Cupcake papers
- Beads
- 2 bigger wood beads
- Mini wood blocks
- Paper straws
- A treat cup
- 3 paper loaf cups
- Safe stringing material

Start by taking a pretty long piece of string, and tying a loop at the top. String on a bead, and then take 5-6 cupcake papers and cut the sides into strips, and then string those on like you would for a puff, one facing down, one facing up, and so on. Now string on the wiffle ball, and then a longer or bigger bead. Now you are going to take a new piece of string, and tie it onto your first piece under the big bead you just added. Once you tie that on, you should have two pieces hanging down on either side of the original piece. On both strands, you are going to string on a mini block, and then half of a paper straw. Then knot the ends on both sides. Now going back to the original string, take a treat cup and poke a hole in the bottom, then string it on facing down. Now take your 3 loaf cups, and poke holes in the bottom of them. String one on facing down, then string on a bead, then another loaf cup, then another bead, then the last loaf cup. Now string on 2-3 beads, and then take another new piece of string and tie it on the original, just like last time. You will want the two pieces hanging down so that they are longer. On each strand, string on a single big bead, and then knot the bottoms. Now string one more bead on the original strand, and knot the bottom. You're done!

Mom just adores this toy, she says it is one of her favorites that she has made. There is a picture in my gallery!

Thank you so much for voting for me! Just one more night until I will hopefully be in the castle! I'll see you tomorrow night. (:

Hugs,
Grey Bird

  Hi Dixie
Another gloomy day here but it was a tad warmer but tomorrow we go back to rain and cooler temps. Sunday is sounding a bit better partly sunny and in the 50's so mom maybe wants to have the first cookout of the year. She went tonight to go buy one of those frozen boneless turkey breast roasts. Plus she got some sweet potatoes so she can make her sweet potato souffle.
Moms off the weekend and don't think anything is planned the only thing my mom has to do is go get her blood work done for her upcoming yearly physical for next Friday.
Sounds like it was a pretty nice day for your mom bet your dad was pretty surprised to she her home pretty early.
Mom still feels so bad for that macaw. I wonder how long it had been where it was just the man and the birdie? I understand he was being attacked but I wonder if he would have given it just a little bit more time would the birdie have adjusted to the new situation? Just sad when a bird has been in a home for a long time then all of a sudden has to find a new one. Have a good night buddy.

Come visit me, Hulk vote Grey Bird BOTM.
