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..

  Hi Dixie
Daisy surprised mom with how well she did in class last night. She picked up things easily and practiced with mom and never tired out. The clicker training works!
BC is running so slow again today! We are all hoping it's in good shape and going faster on Saturday for the milonga!
We all want to wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving in case we don't get online tomorrow. Mom is cooking and the bird is big, so we have to get up early to supervise.
It was supposed to flurry today, but it's been snowing since 9AM. There's no sign of a let up either. We are hoping everyone who is traveling this holiday gets to a destination safely.
Mom got her nails done this morning, and got her new driver's license. She kept looking outside while she was at the nail salon, hoping that the snow would stop, but no such luck.
Now that she's home, once she's done serving as our typist, she will bake pies, get the cranberry sauce ready, and do other little things so tomorrow goes smoothly. We are only having 10 people here, but it's still a chore to make sure all goes well. I hope you are having a good day, getting to taste test, or at least supervise, all the cooking that's going on. Make sure to get lots of scritches and cuddles today, too. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Dixie
It's Ginger.
Right now our gas prices are $2.79 per gallon. This is the lowest they've been in many years. Dad says that there is something up, and it probably won't be good.
Mom and dad were up and gone early yesterday. First they went to the Magnolia Bird Farm for our food. On the way there, their friend Bob called and they set up a time for dinner. Then mom and dad went to free movie day and saw "Dolphin Tale 2". It was a true story about an aquarium in Florida and how two dolphins got together. Great movie! Then they met Bob at home and decided to try Golden Corral again. this time they walked right in and were seated. As before, the food was great. By the time they got home it was time to tuck us in for the night.
Today will be clear, with a high of 86 and a low of 52. Mom and dad will be working on food for Thanksgiving. Mom's mom is coming over to use our kitchen to fix Thanksgiving food, also. Nothing in her kitchen works. Please don't get dad started on that subject.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Ginger.

The Real Macaw is one of dad's favorites. Don't want to tell you too much about it but the Macaw is really old and the movie revolves around a map.
Hope your day is fun.

Sounds like your mom was really busy yesterday. So were my parronts and Lori. The stores were crazy busy. They are happy they don't have to be in the stores today!
Oh....we sure hope that rain doesn't freeze ! That would be such a mess!

  Hi Dixie
Mom came home last night and was surprised to see dad home. Tuesday is is prayer meeting night. He fell and hurt himself gathering and stacking wood, so he took the night off. Mom was getting ready to call your mom and her not so smart phone froze up. She could not power it down, access her contacts, nothing. So she emailed your mom about Mario and his meds. Looking at it this morning, it is still frozen. If all else fails, mom will call you mom from the house phone tonight for sure. That cranberry zucchini salad sounds delicious! Is there anything else special in it? Dressing? Mom was getting annoyed at some of those people at work. Somebirdy was on the phone discussing "due diligence" of the transfer of ownership, etc and all mom could think of was our "Doo Diligence" and how she would like to sneak him into work in a box and let the fun begin! Doo would have a field day with some of the really super sized butts and you know how he loves to bite butts! So please tell your mamma to check her regular email about the meds and mom will call her for sure tonight! Love and winghugs, Cookie

  Hi Dixie
You saw the sun today? What a lucky bird! What happened to your warm perch and warmer? Are they broken? This is the wrong time of year to break!!!!
My parronts drove to Petoskey to get a few things and to get out of here! The roads are still ice covered, even the main roads. Mom was glad that dad drove. If they need anything more, they will just run into Boyne.
I sure hope you don't get that storm.
Check out the window pic on my page. It's getting higher! We are almost at 50 inches of snow for this season. It starts up again on Thursday for a week I think.
Oh sweetie, I will keep you warm until you fall asleep. The friends snuggle in the comforter to keep warm.
This morning I woke to see the winter wonderland. Everything was white with lots of snow for dad to plow again ... hehehe. We got another 9 inches over night. Along with the cold, we will have daily snow starting on Thanksgiving morning. I have 2 new snow pics up for those who like it. I think I'll just go back to my perch for the day under the extra blankets.
Hugs
Chyna

  Sugar and Dixie~
love the muffins and the cocoa taste so good on a cold night! They both laugh at such a goofy story. They love the shocked look on the knights face when he realizes that the log is actually the dragons finger!

Sugar cleans up after their snack and props Dixie's legs up onto the Hello Kitty pillow. She massages his legs and asks him about the rest of his day!
She tells him that when mom went to pick Ian up from work there was so much traffic! It was better when she went to pick up Jennifer but mom had to stop at the market to get cottage cheese for Mandy and the lines were so long! Mom never gets upset about standing in lines since it's a holiday and the lines are to be expected! Tomorrow Ian is going to go buy the fruit to make his fruit salad for the pot luck at work on Thursday. The market is just across the street so it won't be bad.
Sugar hopes that Aunt Rose will get to stay home tomorrow and just enjoy being with him, his dad and the flock!

Soon the friends are yawning and stretching their wings! It is time for bed!
Sugar wraps a wing around Dixie and gives him a kiss goodnight!
They say their prayers and include a special one just for Nan. They say one for Mario too!
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 knows how very blessed she is to have him in her life!

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

  Sugar waddles quietly through the house~
and tip toes down the hallway! She stops at the corner and peeks down the hallway. There is Dixie waiting by the bird room door for her! With a huge smile on her beak, Sugar waddles into the bird room. She throws her wings around Dixie and holds him tightly! She tells him how very happy she is to be here with him tonight! She has been counting the minutes until she could get over here!

"How are you tonight? I hope you had a wonderful day. It was pretty quiet around here and we just did some laundry. Mom is spending a lot of time cleaning up Mandy and cleaning up after Mandy. She is doing pretty good but there is still more work to be done."

Dixie and Sugar waddle over to the platform and snuggle close together. Sugar hands Dixie the Hello Kitty lunch box. He opens it up to find pumpkin muffins with pumpkin seed on top! He puts the muffins on napkins for them while Sugar pours them each a mug of hot cocoa with cream!
They nibble on the muffins and sip the cocoa while Sugar starts to read the story she has for them tonight!

"This story is called "The Kiss that Missed". Once upon a Tuesday the king was in a very big hurry. He was always in a very big hurry! Instead of going into the prince's room to kiss him goodnight, the king blows a kiss to his son! The kiss bounces around the room and then flies out the window! The prince starts to cry and tells the queen what happened. The queen tells the king who orders his knight to go to the forest and capture the kiss!
The knight and his trusty horse go off to the dark, scary forest to find the kiss! They meet bears who are growling at them! There are owls swooping down on them and a pack of hungry wolves! It is very scary for the knight and his horse! Suddenly the glittering kiss flies by! It kisses the bears, the owls and the wolves! They all smile and settle down for the night!
The knight and his horse sit down on a wobbly log and try to figure out how they are going to catch that kiss! The logs starts to rise up in the air and soon the knight and his horse are face to face with a big dragon! The kiss flutters by again and kisses the dragon! The dragon want to kiss the knight and his horse good night and then takes them back to the castle! They finally catch the kiss and send it back into the castle!
After all of this the king promises that he will not always be in such a hurry! He sits down and reads a story to the prince and then gives him a kiss goodnight!"

  Heya, Dixie!
Wow, sounds like your Mom was lucky to get home when she did--that was early! Mom is going nowhere near a food store tomorrow, that is for sure. She has to work, but is coming home after. We have our fresh cranberries for her to make into her famous cranberry sauce. I love that stuff so much! And the fresh ones too, of course!

Well, have to say that we are not sure if the BC is going to let us blog you or not. Super duper ultra slow. We sure did not like that Mom had to go to work today. She said the roads were meh, but around her job things were much nicer. She did go for a walk on the upper trail that overlooks the lake--it was cold, but the sun felt good. Not a lot of folks out there today. Lake was blue in the sun. No boats out there, though!

Some snow showers tomorrow. Mom is so looking foward to her two days off. I get my physical on Friday, and toenails and wings trimmed. Mom is putting up our little tree, too, and I sure am happy about that. I love my tree! She may or may not decorate it. She will put garland on it--last year she put on so much garland, it did not need any ornaments. I love the bright lights.

Stay warm! Beaky kisses and wing hugs coming you and your Mom's and Mario's way (along with those special prayers for him). We love yours so much!!

  Hi Dixie
We are happy to get on BC again tonight also and hoping it holds out each night we go to get on and blog with every birdy. There is snow coming in but looks like its just going to miss us right now but time will tell. Today mom was home all day with me since the parronts went to the grocery store last night. Mom bought all she needed (and more) for Thanksgiving. Today she was chopping and dicing and every once in a while I would fly over to watch. Just when she would be really busy I would leave and throw the nuts out of the bowl on the coffee table though. That kept her busy too and after awhile she quit picking them up. She said she was glad there wasn’t many in the bowl and the bowl was small. Doesn’t matter cause I sure cant get those walnuts open no matter how hard I try! “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole stair case.“ Dropping a vote in your basket.

  Hi Dixie
Mom and I were discussing the sneaker vs. socks issue at your mom's zumba, and we think if she wait a week or two, makes sure she is in the back and has a pair of sneakers with her (for just in case) it would be worth trying again. Did she show Toni that the socks had the rubber strips so she wouldn't slip? That would be where the danger comes in. I really don't see that the sneakers do anything more than keep her from sliding around.

Well, happy to report that Mom got back from driving her friend down to her disability hearing in time to blog, although it didn't go well. That darned judge sent her back for another doctor's visit after telling her she should try telemarketing! How rude! And he was late too. She and Mom had to wait an hour for him, then they got stuck in construction traffic on the way home. Mom's friend was not very happy.

At least it was still warm enough when Mom got home at 1 for us to share lunch and then go out for a sunbath at 1:30. I only got 30 minutes outside, but the vet said that is good for keeping my feathers healthy...and I do look amazing!

No biting today, and so far no cranky behavior at all. Mom's now got a pretty nasty bite from me on the back of each hand, so I had better cool it for a while. That first one is a week old and still looks awful. Who knew my beak was so sharp?

Mom sent those books yesterday. The post office taped all over the package, hope your mom doesn't have too much trouble opening it. Mom just had it taped where she folded it, but they did a real number with the packing tape, heehee.
Mom had fun at the wildlife center yesterday, she did the RVS animals again, which means she fed the bats. She loves doing that, they think they are so fierce, baring their teeth at her! She also did the raccoons outside, as well as the raccoon and ground hog inside.
Today we are going to make cornbread for the stuffing. I hope we all get a sample. If mom has the ambition, she will bake the pies, but she would prefer to wait until tomorrow so they will be fresher. Mom's daughter ordered a fresh local turkey which she will pick up after work and drop here on her way home.
Mom does have an errand today: she needs a 6 foot lead for Daisy's class tonight. She got the mat, the treats are ready, the clicker is in her pocket, but she doesn't have a small 6' leash. The one she has is really thick, too big for that little dog. I only hope she is able to teach that dog some manners! Mom has done her homework all week, so maybe there's a chance this dog will be better by the end of class.
I hope you are all having a good day. Don't forget to come by the Lakers page today to celebrate Thanksgiving with our team! Hugs, Pino

Don't worry I get squawked off when least expected too.
My mommy tells the skin sibs every Thanksgiving that if they argue about washing dishes that this will be the last Thanksgiving they will ever have.
Truthfully I don't believe her. She loves Thanksgiving so much !!!
Anyway they always manage to do the dishes and clean up heehee.
I got to eat some celery for the stuffing and I sampled some pecan pralines yummy !!!
Hey buddy don't forget about the all day Thanks giving feast at the Lakers stadium. It lasts all day !!!

It's Ginger.
That's mom and dad's favorite Subway bread, too. They still have it out here.
Dad had to go and get a Life Scan yesterday. We all thought it had something to do with x-rays but dad said it was for electronic fingerprints. We didn't know that dad had electronic fingers? He said it was for the Police Dept. He had to go to Cal State Fullerton Police to have it done. There was something wrong with La Habra's machine. When he got there his form was the wrong one so dad had to get the correct one and go back. What a pain! The scan only took about five minutes but dad drove about 45 minutes total. Glad gas prices are still dropping.
Today is free movie day so you can guess where mom and dad will be.
Today will be clear, with a high of 80 and a low of 56.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Ginger

We couldn't get back on the BC either.
Amizon.com has one VHS copy of the Real Macaw and DVD Planet.com doesn't have it. Those are dad's favorite places to shop for movies. Hope you can find it. It's a great movie.
You are so right. Music is great. Except when Alex decides to sing along. That's a little hard to take.
Hope your day was fun.

Mom was really rattled last night and she didn't even take Doo out for some tv. We hope things go better today and of course tonight, mom will talk to your mom, so that will make her day so much nicer! Today, she will try and make an appointment with an orthopedist for her knee. Nothing seems to work and she isn;t getting better. She can still take care of us and now does our floor using a mop which CuBird chases when mom mops around her cage. Trying to get mom alert and oriented here so she can begin room service. That is terrible about N Star--I know the parronts have all sorts of bills due at this time and to top it off the fuel people (that guy with the big snake around the back of the house that we all squawk at) filled the oil tank yesterday while it was 75 degrees! Oh, well, guess it's better thank running our on Thanksgiving like the other company did to us when we were on automatic delivery. The human world get so complex at time and I think they just make it worse. That's why I think we should help them all that we can as fids and shred papers and poop on the papers and then when the company calls for the bill, the parront can just say, well the fid pooped on it and that's what we think of you and your service and that's that!

  Hi Dixie
You had sun and 50 degrees????? Lucky bird. We were so happy to get that 2 day melt. But now, it's turning to ice again. At least we lost a lot of snow. Tuesday we are getting 6 to 9 more inches.
I'm so glad you were able to sit in the sun for a while. That feels so good on the feathers.
Oh yes, mom would love to go with your mom and Nana shopping.
She hopes to get out next week with dad to finish Christmas shopping.
Sorry every birdie ... couldn't get on the BC yesterday. We had 42 degrees with rain again today. It was nice to watch snow melt. We lost almost 1/3 of our snow. But, on Tuesday we will be back to 32 degrees with snow. I guess I have to put that extra blanket back on the perch tonight. How about sharing some hot chocolate with me? OOPS ... it's snowing already tonight!
Oh sweetie, I worry about you ... please stay warm and comfy ... I want you to feel good in the morning. Awww, love you too.
Hugs

  Hi Dixie
yesterday was quite a day for me. it was mom and dads 37anniversary and they were actually going to leave the house and go out for dinner. dad asked mom to trim my beak because he said the top was way to long and i couldn't eat properly with it. when mom took a look she saw that i had somehow broken the bottom half of my beak off and my top beak was about 3/4 of an inch longer. she wrapped me in a tea towel and got a good grip of my head and held my beak together and started filing away with the emery board. she moved fast because she doesn't want to hold me in that position for very long. at one point she noticed blood on her hand and thought maybe i had bitten her so she stopped to checked and make sure i was ok . here my top beak had started to bleed where she filed it down. you have to realize mom always is working on my beak and nails and so was very surprised to see what had happened in the first place and in order for my beak to fit properly she had to file it down to the right length which made it bleed. when mom saw the blood she became ill and thought she was going to vomit. she grabbed some flour and dipped my beak in it. then she uses a cloth and wiped the blood off, then she dipped my beak in flour again. at this point i suspected mom was putting batter on me to eat me for dinner. mom was so upset she told dad no way was she going out for dinner when my beak had been bleeding. what if it started bleeding again while they were gone. dad said ok and went out and brought dinner hone from a nice local italian restaurant. that night mom let me chase a live cricket around and i did and caught it and ate it all up. i was fairly quiet but that was because i was very mad at mom. today i m still mad at mom but acting a little better and eating with my beak. mom says with my beak so short i really look like a baby bird now

love Boo Boo

  Sugar cleans up after the snack~
and props Dixie's legs up onto the Hello Kitty pillow. She starts to massage his legs and asks how the day went. She tells him that she really did have a nice day. Mom had lots and lots of cleaning to do because Mandy is not very good at hitting the wee wee pads yet! There is lots of laundry to be done too but mom says it's okay! Mandy is old!

Soon the friends are yawning and stretching their wings. It is time to get some sleep!
Sugar wraps a wing around Dixie and gives him a kiss goodnight.
They say their prayers and include a special one just for Nana. They say one for Mario too!
Sugar has her own prayers just for Dixie. She thanks the Lord everyday for bringing Dixie into her life! She knows how blessed she is to have such a wonderful friend!

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

  Sugar waddles quietly through the house~
and runs down the hallway! She is so happy to be here tonight! She gets a big smile on her beak when she sees Dixie waiting by the bird room door.
She throws her wings around him and holds him tightly! She tells him how very, very happy she is to finally be here! She was so very sad when she couldn't get on the BC last night!

"How are you tonight! Oh I am so happy to be here! I missed you so much last night. Mom said she was sorry but we just couldn't get on the BC!!
I had a nice day just hanging out with mom. We made a pumpkin pie and then cooked a ham and some corn bread and some crescent rolls! It was lovely! Now I'm here for our story so the day is just perfect!!"

The friends waddle over to the platform and snuggle close together. Sugar hands Dixie the Hello Kitty lunch box! He opens it and finds warm banana bread! He puuts the banana bread on napkins for them while Sugar pours them each a mug of hot cocoa with cream!
They nibble on the bread and sip the cocoa whild Sugar starts to read the story she has for them tonight!

"This is a lovely story called "Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge". Wilfred is a little boy who lives next door to an old folks home. He loves going over there to visit the people who live there. There is Mrs. Gordon, Mr. Hoskins, Mr. Mitchel but his favorite person there is Nancy Alison Dealcourt Cooper. He likes that she has 4 names just like him! Wilfred spends everyday with Nancy. He tells her all his secrets and she tells him stories about her life.
One day when Wilfred is sitting with his parents he hears them saying that it is sad about Nancy. Wilfred asks waht is wrong and they tell him that she is losing her memory. He doesn't understand and asks his parents about it. They tell him that she can not remember things anymore!
Wilfred starts to think about how he can help Nancy. Wilfred starts to think about all the stories Nancy has told him. He goes and collects some sea shells, puppets, his favorite football, some airplane models and an egg. He takes the things over to Nancy and shows her to them one at a time. She listens to the sea shells and remembers a trip to the beach. She tells Wilfred about it! She sees his football and remembers the day she saw Wilfred and his dad tossing it in their yard! She laughs when Wilfred sings a song with the puppet! She sees the airplane models and remembers a trip she took! She holds the egg and thinks about the Easter party they had!
Wilfred smiles because he has helped Nancy remember things!"

Dixie and Sugar love the banana bread and the cocoa. They both think Wilfred is so smart to help Nancy remember things. He is such a good friend!

  MY DEAR SWEET FIBLINGS AND COUSIN MARIO
ONCE MOM HEARD OF TEH TROUBLES YESTERDAY LATE MORNING SHE TOO TRIED TO GET ON BC, BUT IT WOULDN'T EVEN LET HER LOG ON. MOM SENT E-MAILS TO I-5 AND TO CRYSTAL. HAVE NOT HEARD A WORD FROM THEM. THEN FOUND OUT THIS MORNING THAT BC WAS WORKING ONCE AGAIN.

ITS A GOOD THING WE ALL HAVE EACH OTHERS E-MAILS TO KEEP IN TOUCH.

MOM IS DOING BETTER TODAY BUT NOT PERFECT. SHE WENT TO THE GYM TO JUST WORK WITH HER TRAINER BUT THE TRAINER NEVER SHOWED UP. SO MOM JUST DID A 40 MINUTE WORKOUT ON SOME OF THE MACHINES. SHE DIDN'T EVEN TRY THE TREADMILL AS MOM HAD ONLY EATEN A SMALL BOWL OF CEREAL FOR BREAKFAST AND WAS VERY TIRED AFTER HER WORKOUT. THEN AT 12 NOON WHEN MOM WAS GOING TO LEAVE, IN CAME THE TRAINER FOR HER 12 NOON APPT. SHE HAD FORGOTTEN THAT ON LAST WED THEY CHANGED MOM'S WED APPT (CAUSE OF HAVING THE EPIDURAL) TO MONDAY. MOM TOLD HER THAT SHE COULDN'T STAY AS SHE ALREADY DID 40 MINS AND SHE WAS EXHAUSTED. SO THEY RESCHEDULED FOR TOMORROW AT 2 PM. MOM ATE A BIT BETTER TODAY BUT NOT A LOT. HOPEFULLY BY TOMORROW SHE WILL BE BETTER YET. IT USUALLY TAKES A FEW DAYS TO GET FEELING BETTER.

WELL WE HAD OUR FIRST OFFICIAL SNOW. WE WOKE UP TO A VERY BLUSTERY SNOWY DAY THIS MORNING. IT WAS WET SNOW AS IT WAS IN THE UPPER LOW 40'S THEN DURING THE DAY IT DROPPED TO MID 30'S. THE SNOW IS STILL ON THE GRASS BUT NOT THE STREETS, IT WAS MOSTLY SLUSH AND TONIGHT ITS SUPPOSED TO FREEZE. WE ONLY GOT NOT EVEN HALF AN INCH OF SNOW. THEY SAY IT MAY SNOW LATE WED INTO THURSDAY MORNING.

NOT MUCH ELSE HAPPENING HERE SO FAR. MOM IS JUST RESTING. WE WATCHED DANCING WITH THE STARS TONIGHT. TOMORROW IS THE FINALS TO SEE WHO WINS.

HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT DAY TOMORROW.

  Heya, Dixie!
Oh, now that is so sweet that your Dad is making the birdies house for them! Mom feels the same way when she sees the sparrows out there and they have no place to go for warmth or to stay out of the snow and winds and rain. I know they are wild, but gosh, it is a tough time when it is like it is now (snow, cold) or like it was a couple days ago (really cold).

We are officially in winter. I hate to say it, but our lovely (though dark and grey and rainy) temperatures are gone for good until spring. IT SNOWED today. Mom was less than thrilled. She took the city streets home tonight as she did not want to deal with the idiots on the expressway. It was not too bad, but as she got closer to home, you could see how the snow was much heavier. She dragged out the boots she bought--they are Skechers, and they are waterproof, insulated and make her feet look like gunboats. But they are comfy for walking as far as she has to from her parking structure. And she can't understand why these idiots don't clean off their cars/trucks if they are out in the snow. They turn on the windshield wipers and have that much visibility. Meanwhile, the snow on the roof of their car blows off and really makes the guy behind them suffer. UGH! Hate snow. We are up for 3-5 inches, so you know how not excited we are.

Sure hope you avoid snow and the cold. I am snuggling on Mom and I have to say that is the best.

Glad to be back on the BC. Not sure how long it lasts, but at least I can vote for Miss Ruby and say hi to all of ya!

Sending you and your Mom warm wing hugs and big old smoochie beaky kisses! And of course, great big prayers for Mario, of course! Yours brighten our day, and make the sun come out and make it all nice and warm like it would be summer!!!

  Hi Dixie
Yes moms days fly by so quick and with the holidays it will be a big blur and all over with in no time flat! Today was windy. warm and sunny then cloudy and mom just had the light off and on all day long. Might of been a good day to hang clothes out but moms back and leg has been hurting so she didnt bother and tossed them all in the dryer instead. We couldn’t get on BC last night either. Hoping it stays on so we can get our blogs done now tonight. Sometimes at night after I am in bed and covered for the night I hear dad cracking nuts that sit on the coffee table. Sometimes in the day dad will crack one and give me some of it so he does share. I get on the coffee table and knock the bowl off the table and then check all the nuts out to see if I can get them open but never can do that with the walnuts. They are tough nuts! Mom buys almonds in the shell and some of them I can get open though but takes me a long time. “Sometimes I think “what is a friend?” and then I say a friend is some birdy to share the last treat with as I would share with you ” Leaving a vote for you. Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Dixie
We know...BC was down like all day yesterday. No problem. Mom got 2 rx's faxed from Dr Blake...the allopurinol (which requires blood levels) and the colchicine(which mom will discuss both with your mom tomorrow night) No order for the metoclopramide was made. I assume all is well with Mario and his crop? It is emptying properly? Mom couldn't find an avian dose for it in Plumbs. You look very handsome in your football gear. We got mom back too late to have any of us for cheer or football, so mom got our stuff out anyway as a show of support. I know Teal'c was blogging with Kiddo and said he might be able to use him somewhere, but we are happy just to go and have fun! Yesterday, I came out and had dinner with the parronts (no grey fisters!) I ate off of dad's plate and it was wonderful! Carter and Teal'c have moved in together so it is one less cage for mom to do. Then Josh was a really bad boy yesterday and grabbed mom by the pony tail not letting go until he had her tie dyed scrunchie and hurled it into his cage like a trophy! Mom could not believe how strong he is! Mom is totaled from work today..a very bad day. But I know Doo will make her feel better. Love and winghugs, Cookie

  Hi Dixie
You should get your football pic soon. Auntie Denise did mine first so I could promote the game. She has 38 pics to do altogether, so it takes a while. I am sure you will get yours soon.

I can[t believe Toni is going to make your mom wear shoes. Our gym doesn't do that, but then it may be a state law thing. Those places are always worried about getting sued, even though your sweet mama would never think about doing something like that. Darn!

I am not getting outside for a sunbath today, even though it is just about warm enough. The problem is me! My mom was in my room drinking hot tea from her travel mug for a headache, and I decided I didn't like the mug....and I attacked her hand that was holding it. Yep, another nasty bite, and I am now in my room in time out. I know I have been bad, because I am being very quiet. Mom didn't really yell at me, but she did say Good-bye pretty loud and three times! Haven't seen her since except for lunch. I behaved then, so why am I still a bad boy?

I did get a sunbath yesterday, although since I couldn't blog (thanks a lot, BC) I couldn't tell anybirdy about it. Today is trash day with the big trucks coming around, so I might not have gone outside anyway. Those trucks really scare me. And it is pretty windy here even if it is 75 degrees out.

I may not be blogging tomorrow, because my mom has to drive her friend down to court for an appeal on a disability hearing. If she gets home in time though, I will still be able to blog. We shall see.

Don't forget to vote for Miss Ruby #35469, there are only a few more days to vote!

P.S. You will be happy to hear that I am now out with my mom dictating my blogs. So far I am behaving, although I do keep trying to feed my mom's fingers which she is not too crazy about.

  `Ü´ Greetings & A Lovely Monday to You
Mr Dixie and The Marstons Mills Flock!

I do hope that your Saturday and Sunday were full of fun and productivity. I know in my case I had to relinquish Momma’s eggsclusive attention and assistance on my Campaign to be your December Bird of the Month to more pressing parrontal matters around our K Kritter Korral. (The portion of Sunday during which Momma was available to bring me to your page for a visit, the BirdChannel was not cooperating. You might say that their GPS was out of order! **TeeHee**)

You see, Momma and Daddy were informed that they could eggspect a visit from my Grandma from Idaho from later today, to last thru Thursday morning when they all gather at Daddy’s youngest brother’s home about an hour away from us for the first Family Celebration with everyone present since Momma and Daddy have known each other. Grandma was eager to be able to spend time here with Momma and Daddy, and all of us fids of course, before joining the rest of the family for a concurrent Celebration of Thanksgiving and her BirthDay on Thursday! Then she will remain with my Uncle and his family until she returns to her home in Idaho later in the week, while my other Uncle comes to pay us a visit over the long weekend.

So, all of this is to say that my visits may be a bit sporadic from now thru the end of the month, due to Grandma’s visit, the Holiday weekend with my Uncle visiting, and the upcoming Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl Game. I do apologize in advance for any visits I shall have to forego. But rest assured that I shall continue to do my utmost to bring you the maximum amount of FootBall information in the time we have left together.

And on that note, let us get straight to the information I’ve promised you next about the Offensive Squad on a FootBall team …


Let’s begin our eggsamination of the individual Positions on the Offensive Squad.

QuarterBack – The Player who usually receives the ball from the Center at the start of each play. He informs his TeamMates in the huddle of the play that will be run and then, after the Center snaps* the ball to him, either hands the ball to a Running Back or throws to a Receiver.

Center – The Player who hikes (or snaps) the ball to the QuarterBack at the start of each play. The term comes from the fact that this Player is flanked on either side by a Guard and a Tackle; he’s the “MiddleMan” (or Center) in a contingent of five Offensive LineMen or Blockers. He handles the ball on every play and also snaps the ball to the Punter and Holder.

Guard – There are two Guards on every play, and they line up on either side of the Offensive Center. The Guards protect the QuarterBack from an Inside Rusher; they block Defenders immediately across from them and also swing out, or pull**, and run toward either end [of the line] to block any Defender when the ball carrier runs wide°.

Come visit me, `Ü´ Ruby Coaches the Offense.

11/24/2014 11:31.48 AM Report This Comment  
  Tackle – Both Offensive and Defensive, on Offense they are Outside Blockers on the line of scrimmage°°.

Tight End – Serves as a BIG Receiver [Oh MY!] and also a Blocker. Unlike a Wide Receiver, this Player generally lines up beside the Offensive Tackle either to the right or to the left of the QuarterBack. (Also “Strong Side+”)

Wide Receiver – The Player who uses his speed and quickness to elude Defenders and catch the FootBall, but who isn’t primarily a Blocker. Wide Receivers are also known as “pass catchers” [but I-I-I would parrotsonally NOT disparage one so!]. Also called a WideOut.

Running Back – A Player who runs with the FootBall. Running Backs are also referred to as TailBacks and HalfBacks, depending on their exact responsibilities and alignment.

FullBack – A Player who lines up in the Offensive backfield++ and generally is responsible for blocking for the Running Back and pass-blocking to protect the QuarterBack. FullBacks also serve as short-yardage runners.


I would also like to call your attention to a display of several of the basic Offensive Formations which appear in the Gallery at the bottom of my page. (They also appear in my Profile Picture at the top of my page; but they are much clearer and contain eggsplanatory text in the photos in the Gallery.) I hope these are of use to you in recognizing some of what happens on the actual field of play the next time you watch a FootBall Game.

I am also including several definitions of terms used in the above Position Descriptions at the end of this note.

Have a Greyt Day! Perhaps enjoy watching The Jets play The Bills at 7:00 pm on CBS, or The Ravens play at The Saints at 8:30 pm on ESPN. Both times are EST. Remember, it is virtually illegal to watch a FootBall Game quietly. So do what we Avians are most well-known for doing … **S*Q*U*A*W*K** . **I*T** . **U*P** ! ! !

À la prochen frois, mes amies,
[Until next time, My Featheriends]
`Ü´ Ruby Francesca Beongia ♥


*snap—the action in which the ball in handed or hiked by the Center to the QuarterBack, to the Holder on a kick attempt, or to the Punter.
**pull—when a player leaves one area of the field, generally moving back and then over, to block in an area other than his normal position.
°run wide
°°line of scrimmage—the imaginary boundary between the two teams prior to the snap of the ball. The Offense’s and Defense’s scrimmage lines are defined by the tip of the ball closest to them and stretch from sideline to sideline. The Defensive Team usually lines up less than a yard away from where the ball is placed.
+strong side—the side of the Offensive formation where the Tight End aligns. With a right-handed QuarterBack, the strong side is usually to his right side.
++backfield—the group of Offensive Players (the Running Backs and QuarterBack) who line up behind the line of scrimmage (vs the Offensive LineMen and/or Receivers who line up at the line of scrimmage).

  Hi Dixie
It's Ginger.
We see that the BC is back up and running.
Yesterday was "Destroy Birdy Art Day". Mom cleaned our cages. And dad helped. All our hard work! Gone! Oh well, guess we'll just have to start over.
Bob called dad and said that his Palm PDA won't sync with his computer. Dad asked Bob to reboot the computer and then reset his PDA. Rebooting didn't help and Bob doesn't know how to reset his PDA so mom and dad may drive to his house to check it out.
Today will be clear, with a high of 87 and a low of 57.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Ginger.

  Hi Dixie
Mom is going to look into either radiant heaters or oil radiators. She doesn't trust this furnace any more, and it's not that old. It's probably about 6 years, but it's a real piece of crap. The last guy who came to fix it says he works on more York furnaces than any others, so they're just not as well made as they used to be.
Sorry we weren't able to blog yesterday. Mom was at the Galleria, a shopping area about 20 miles (through city traffic) away. The event started at 12 and ran to 4, but the folks from the wildlife center wanted all the volunteers there at 11 to help set things up, and of course, they stayed at the end to put it all back in the vans. Mom and her partner had Quincy and Dan Quail; Jake the snake was at another table, and Ray the crow was in still another location on the second level. On the third level there were programs every hour featuring Murphy the skunk and Martha the Great Horned Owl. There were also refreshments and kid crafts, as well as face painting on that level. It was a fairly large event to organize and pull off so far from the center, but a local auto company outfitted a van and donated it for a year. It has cages in it, and is comfortable for a lot of animals, and has cats, dogs, and wild animals painted on the sides so we can now transport critters to events and hopefully make more cash.
Anyway, mom was pretty tired when she got home so she spent the evening cuddling with us and crocheting things for Christmas.
Today mom has 2 public tours in Dinosaur hall, but she'll be home making out the shopping list for Thanksgiving and being with us afterwards. We were going to try a Hubbard squash pie this year, but mom left the squash on the back deck, and it froze, so it's not good for anything except squirrels and deer now. Mom tossed it and the pumpkins over the hill for the animals this morning.
Our weather, after freezing rain yesterday morning (during the drive, of course), has turned warmer. It was in the high 40s when we got up today, and it's supposed to carry through until tomorrow, and be nice once again. It's probably our last hurrah, though. We can expect wintery conditions to get here again on Wednesday. Oh, and the furnace is finally up and running reliably after the guy replaced some pressure switches on Friday. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of attention and love. Hugs, Pino

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Happy Thanksgiving, Peppino, Happy Thanksgiving, Divo & Falco, Happy Thanksgiving.
