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..

  Heya, Dixie!
We are getting worried about not hearing from you--and are sending good thoughts and prayers that all is okay with you--and that you are on your vacation now. Just not like you, you know?!

Another beautiful day here! Temps are around 80 but the dew point and humidity are so low it is delightful!

Let's say Mom's week started off with another call to Microsoft, a call to FitBit (her tracker) and then back to Microsoft. Grr! All that time on the phone and puter and not giving me all the attention I deserve! (Mom snickers; like I don't pay attention to the bird!) Things are working now, so that is good.

Wing hugs coming your way, your Mom's, Candida's, your Dad's, Nana's and the Skins--and those good thoughts and prayers for everyone, too!

Vote number 19,000 from me to you!

Not sure what is going on as I could have sworn I heard from you yesterday. Not seeing the blog either--and it says you have not been on here for 3 days, which I know is not correct. Weird!

Oh what a delightful day! Humidity down, dew point down, temp in the 70's. Watched the last of the Olympics today until Mom went over to Grandpa's. They had on the Brewers game, and it was so cool to have them win on Counsell's birdthday! Mom did weeding today, and got to meet the neighbor across the street that did Grandpa's bushes. They also exchanged phone numbers just in case. Grandpa is so frail, but still sharp mentally. Thank heavens. Anyway, Mom is so grateful for good neighbors who watch out for Grandpa.

Mom found out today that her friend Sue in Eau Claire's hubby has a small tumor in his bladder. He is having it biopsied to see what it is. If you could say a prayer for him, that would be very appreciated.

Wing hugs coming atcha, your Mom, Candida, your Dad, Nana, and the Skins, along with good thoughts and prayers for all of you! Hope you are getting ready for that time away with your Mom, too!

They both finish the moat and then its time for lunch. They dig Dixie outta the sand and peek into the cooler to see what mom has made for them. Dixie says i'll get us the drinks what do you guys want? Pookie says i'll have a guava juice box! Sugar says apple juice for me. Okay I got it!

Pookie asks Sugar tuna and lettuce or egg salad sandwich with bits of bacon and shredded lettuce?

Sugar says . . . . . .

Dixie says I want the egg salad with bacon bits!! Yummy yummjy!!! Pookie says you want eggstra bacon buddy??

Dixie says of course good buddy! You know me. :)

yeah Pookie says i'll have the same too. :)

The each take a perch under the big tree where its nice and cool and the breeze is making them all sleepy after their lunch. ahhhhhhhh Pookie yawns.....and stretches.

I'm gonna take a nap.... me too says Sugar. Dixie is already napping as they can hear his little snores....

  Heya, Dixie!
So that Worldly Cuisine is strictly for birds, huh? Are you eating it now? Mom says she thought some of those bird specific foods looked and smelled greyt. But since she would not eat them, neither would I. She gave up on it!!

Mom says that your Mom should not feel guilty about having time to herself with your Dad, and since you can come along, that is even better. Don't let anyone try to take away that tiime together, either, cuz your Mom does so much for everyone, it is time she had something nice for herself. Everyone will be fine.

Raining here off and on all day. Got to the farmer's market late as Mom had more issues with the computer and Office 365. Took hours to get resolved with Microsoft and then the antivirus did not work and Mom had to uninstall it and it took 3 tries to reinstall everything. She ran scans to make sure nothing was funky, and all is now okay. Sheesh!!

Got to the farmer's market too, and Mom was so happy that I went in my carrier so well. Had my picture taken again, too. Might be famous--I think the lady said she takes pix for the farmer's market facebook page. Guess I will have to go check, huh?

Wing hugs coming your way, your Mom's, Candida's, Nana's and your Dad's and the Skins! Good thoughts for all of you, and our prayers, too!

  Hi Dixie
Went to bed with thunderstorms last night and woke up to rain this morning. Was cooler but still felt slightly humid. There was a strong breeze blowing most of the day and then finally the humidity is gone.
Mom did more cleaning today then ran some errands she went to target again and what a madhouse that was. The parking lot was so full just like it is around the holidays. Mom says its normally not like that this time of year on the weekends everyone must have been back to school shopping. She then went to kohl's she was second guessing herself on that but it wasnt bad at all. Found parking right away found a nice pair of shorts on sale and was able to check out right away.Othher than that nothing to exciting happened. Hope your weekend is off to a good start. Have a good night buddy.

Wonder if your mom and Nana could cut and hem the curtains that are too long if Nana likes them well enough.
So happy for you to get out on the deck with mom and dad and Candida...we will miss this time when old man winter shows up again!
Looks like we are safe for the weekend again since BC is still up and running!
There was no sunbath for yours truly today. First off it was hot and humid and then mom went to the store and by the time she got home it sure was too hot!
Today was NRA youth day at the gun club dad belongs to and the grands came to participate in it. They had fun and learned a lot too. Dad went up this morning to meet with skin sis and DIL and then he had to go to the trail to fix something there. After that he stopped at home and mom went to the gun club with dad to watch the grands in the different activities. Yep that left me home alone! Now mom is way behind and almost time for bed.

  TOMORROW ! ! !
I don't need to tell you how excited mom is ! When mom checked the weather, it looks like storms won't start till late afternoon or evening tomorrow . . .

First, let me clarify - although the peach was fresh off A tree, it wasn't OUR tree - it was a friend's . . . mom wishes we had one of our own. She loves fruit as much as I do !

Mom is almost done in her classroom - she's meeting my Laura on Thursday to finish up with the work - first they'll do mom's, then go down county to do my Laura's . . . Since my Laura is changing classes, she has a whole new curriculum to learn so mom is going to help her get started. Then she'll come stay with me next Friday night since mom and dad are heading back upstate for the NYS Fair in Syracuse on Saturday . . .

Today is visit the g'parronts day in our house . . . and you know what that means - sugar snap peas ! And wax beans ! Mom remembers when she was a kid and her dad always had a big garden, she'd plop herself down right in it and snack right off the plants !

Have a great Saturday - love you, mom, dad, nana, the skins and feathers ! Cookie helping mom count to TOMORROW !

  Hey Dixie,
Angel Pookie looks at the showcase of prizes then looks at Dixie then looks back at the prizes and then his wing tip points to one in particular. Dixie is dying to see what Pookie picked out.....

Then Pookie turns around and spreads his wings and says ta da!!!!

It's a sparkly necklace just like Dixies one. Wow!! Now we are matching twins!! Yeah!! Pookie saunters in front of Dixie and says how do I look?

Dixie says you looook marvelous!! Then they both go to the fun mirrors to check out themselves. They both admire themselves in the funny mirrors even if it's a little distorted.

Come on let's get something to eat as I'm starving. Dixie says you read my mind, or was my tummy growling? Hehehe

They head for the food booths and every birdie turns to see them. Laka says look, twins!! ;)

Dixie and Pookie says that's how we roll!!! :)

Pookie says look there's our favorite sticky rice! Oh and mini corn on the cob too! They make their plates and watch every birdie still playing games trynna win a prize.

This was a good for us huh Dixie buddy. He nods in agreement as his beak is full of rice. Heeheehee. ;)

Sending you all big birdie hugs and beaky kisses too.

Love,

Your buddy Pookie

  Heya, Dixie!
Glad your Mom is an expert wasp zapper wielder! We know they serve a purpose in the realm of things--but never in my house!!! LOL.

Sure will have to let me know when you are going wherever you are going next week. Hopefully nothing will bring your Mom back from wherever you are--turn off the phone and just relax and enjoy!

Rainy, humid and grey here today. It was so dark when Mom got up! I did not want to come out of my house, either, as I thought it was time to sleep. Got some sun in the afternoon then it got dark again. Mom and I took a nap that usually is 30 minutes max, but today we woke up after 90 minutes. And found out it rained like crazy, according to Grandpa when we talked to him after we got up. Guess it was that kind of day! Not much going on here, which is wonderful.

  Hi Dixie
mom thought she typed DVR not VCR. comcast said they refurbished all the old DVR and added some digital chip and if you didn't get it you wouldn't be able to access any movies or on demand. plus the remote that comcast tech support in bangledesh said mom needed to replace was perfectly fine. he also said comcast tech support is so bad that you can't listen to anything they tell you. mom agrees with this since every time she calls things always end up getting worse and they always want you to reboot a modem by sticking a pin in it and mom can't find the modem and she can't read the serial numbers they want. mom told them she can't be the only person whose sole entertainment is the computer and tv. plus Cori has such big feet she is always standing on the remote and messing it up..

Yes those tests were about 3 years ago and very scary time for mom and just thank God they were all ok. Thanks for liking the flower pictures. They were easy to do once mom caught on how. Thanks so much for your help!! We will be waiting on the Devils claw report and hope it helps Nana and Dixie both!!
Well here it is Friday so looks like we are going to get another weekend of BC since its rumored BC doesn’t work on the weekends!
This morning mom did some cleaning and then I was scooped up and given a bath and then outside for a sunbath. It was 10:30 and the sun was out but not real humid or too hot which felt pretty good. After that the rest of day mom and I just took it easy and played. These are the greatest kind of days!!

We got some early morning thunderstorms here this morning. Mom didn't hear thing and didn't know it had stormed until she got up and opened the curtains and saw all our veggie plants were knocked over again and our patio was soaked.our poor veggie plants sure have taken a beating this summer. Mom says its no wonder why the tomato plant is dying.
Mom did some laundry and cleaning today the usual it seems. Then later in the afternoon she headed out to head to her parents house one of her brothers and his two kids was coming to town. Then all of them went out to eat to the pizza ranch. Now mom is stuffed and feels so lazy so it will be a quiet night.
Yesterday she ended up getting out of the house for a bit to do some shopping. Wishes she didn't after she had been out for a bit because it was so terribly humid. Today is pretty
humid too so we are anxiously awaiting the cool front. I said it before and I will say it again hopefully this will finally be the last of the humid weather. Have a good night buddy.

  The friends love the apple chips and juice. They are all giggling at the story! The teacher did tell them they should share everything so she shouldn't be upset because they shared their clothes!

The friends kick back in the play tent to wait for supper. Sugar tells them it's very hot at her place today. Her mom put the portable A/C on early to keep the room cool. It has a thermostat so it will turn on and turn off depending on what temp is set. Mom put it at 75 for now.
McKenzie is afraid of it! She was jumping up and barking at it every time it clicked on or off! She seems better now but she did move all her toys away from it.
Sugar tells them that her dad is feeling better today. The swelling is going down and hopefully it won't be too long before it's gone completely. He is not a goo patient!
Sugar tells them that her mom is back to work tonight. Weekends really need to be longer!
Sugar hopes that the day was a good one and that Nana and Aunt Rose got their errands done. She wants to hear all about their trip to Nana's house!

Sugar tells them that she is so grateful to have such wonderful friends to hang out with! She loves them all so very much!

got to have a snack in the play tent while they wait for supper. Dixie has a bag of apple chips for them to share and Candida has the juice boxes. They all snuggle together and enjoy the snack while Sugar starts to read the book she has for them tonight.

"This story is called "We Share Everything". It is Amanda and Jeremiah's first day of Kindergarten. They have no idea what to expect.
The go into the class room and see lots of kids and the teacher there.
Amanda finds a book that looks good and Jeremiah wants to see it also. Amanda tells him no that she wants to look at the book. Jeremiah tells her if she doesn't give it to him he is going to start screaming!! When Amanda says no, he screams!
Amanda shoves the book in his mouth!
The teacher runs over and tells them that they are in Kindergarten now and in Kindergarten they share everything!
Jeremiah goes off to build a big tower with blocks. Amanda goes over and tells him she want to play with the blocks. Jeremiah tells her no. She tells him she will kick the block if he doesn't give them to her! He says no so Amanda kicks the tower! The block fly everywhere and hit Amanda on the head!
The teacher runs over and tells them that they are in Kindergarten now and in Kindergarten they share everything!
They both spot the paints at the same time! The both want to be first to paint! They both are first to paint only the paint flies all over them and the room!
The teacher and the kids run over and tell them that they are in Kindergarten now and in Kindergarten we share everything!!
Amanda and Jeremiah asks each other what they should share. Amanda thinks about it and tells Jeremiah they should share their shoes! They switch shoes and it feels good to share! Next they share their shirts and finally share their pants! Amanda is wearing Jeremiah's clothes and Jeremiah is wearing Amanda's!
The teach runs over and sees them dressed in each others clothes! She asks them who told them they could share their clothing?
The kids all run over and say that they are in Kindergarten now and in Kindergarten they share everything!
The teacher just shakes her head! She thinks it's going to be a very long year!"

Definitely NOT a TGIF - each one that goes by means summer is closer and closer to being over ! But there is still Sunday . . . mom is so excited - she keeps talking about it !

Mom's plan is to finish up with her classroom between today and Monday. She'll do all the cutting of letters (whoops, daddy will do all the cutting ! I'll take care of all the scraps !) and things for bulletin boards over the weekend and just have to hang them on Monday. At least that's the plan - she also has a list of things she wants to do here . . . we'll see about that.

No walk last night as the heat is creeping back in - they tried but daddy started complaining about melting and came home - mom says maybe she'll go this morning before heading to school. She only wishes she had someone to walk with . . .

I bet it's a busy place at your house today !

and that's all the news from my perch for today ! Have a great Friday - love you all bunches ! Cookie counting his feet . . . one, TWO !

  Hey Dixie,
Well after a long long birdie nap the two get up and stretch their wings and legs and Pookie says let's go play some games!

Let's try the ring toss! Yeah sounds good says Dixie. Okay Pookie says it's all in the wings. Here watch me..... Pookie tosses the ring and tries to catch it on the top of the soda bottles.

But his wing strength is too strong and the plastic rings flies onto the dime toss table. Where Hulk, Laka and Polu yell hey!!! You knocked our dimes out!!

Sorry yells Pookie and then Dixie tries and it circles around the top then goes on. Yay!!!! Cool!! What shall I choose he says hmmmmm a stuffed toy or a sparkly necklace? I choose the sparkly necklace!! Angel Pookie says good choice!! Pookie keeps trying but doesn't get it on any of the bottle tops. He's frustrated and says let's go try the dart game! Dixie follows with his sparkly necklace that he wears. He turns to Pookie and says how do I look??

Pookie says boy you a one shiney bird! But it looks good on you, lucky it's got elastic in there otherwise it might be hard to get off. Yeah your right, I never thought of that. ;)

Dixie saunters around with his prize and is a very proud winner.

Love, hugs and a vote.

well comcast came to the house today and took away the vcr. and gave mom a refurbished(used) one because they have updated them. mom lost all her movies she had saved that she liked and planned to watch. the new vcd isn't any better than the one they took away but they told mom if she didn't take it her tv would no longer receive the proper signals. mom stayed up until 4am trying to watch recordedshows before they came and took it away.

g-pa son flew back to florida last night. he called mom this evening to let her know what is going on. mom hasn't been over to see g-pa for a few days since his 2 sons are handling things and mom doesn't want to antagonize them. the older son got g-pa moved back to the assisted living facility. he isn't in the room with g-ma but directly underneath her on the floor below. mom asked how g-pa back was because that is the only thing he has been complaining about. the stepbrother said g-pa is on morphine for the pain. mom is keeping her opinion to herself about that. apparently they didn't think to try tylenol. oh well. anyway stepbrother told mom to start cleaning things out of the the g-parents apartment and have it all emptied out in the next 2 weeks. i guess thats the timeline for using morphine on a 100 year old man who until up to a month ago still walked 3 miles every day.

now about me. i have been sung my perches more and more. mom had Cori and me outside for awhile today to gets some sun. i sat on the sponge while i was outside but as soon as mom bought me back inside i jumped to my highest perch. today mom watched me jump from cup holders in my cage. anyway mom fed me dinner on my sponge tonight and i wouldn't eat it. mom was waiting for that. i think mom might try and put my food in my upper cup holder tomorrow. tonight in the bed room mom watched me test my leg by putting weight on it and swiveling my hips. mom thinks it must still hurt but is feeling better.

mom doesn't want to go to the nursing home tomorrow to start cleaning out the apartment. it is too depressing. tomorrow is the last day the public pool is open and mom might go and spend a little time there to try and relax

love Boo Boo

  Dixie, Sugar and Candida enjoy the biscotti and juice. They all loved the story and can't stop giggle at the fact that a bear would want a little boy as a pet. They agree that they would not like to try to have a child as a pet!
They clean up after their snack. Candida gives Sugar and Dixie a hug goodnight and heads off to her night cage.
Dixie and Sugar waddle over to the platform and snuggle close together. Sugar props Dixie's leg up onto the Hello Kitty pillow and massages his legs. She asks him how his day went. She hopes that Aunt Rose got to stay home and just relax.
Sugar tells Dixie they got some chores done today. Mom had to spend a lot of time playing with McKenzie because she was being wild today.
Mom got her a new toy this morning and within 15 minutes McKenzie chewed open he head and pulled the squeaker out. That was sure fast!
Tomorrow they will finish up the chores. It's going to be very hot so mom will be putting the A/C on tomorrow. Sugar knows that Jennifer and Ian will really appreciate that.
Dad is feeling better and the swelling is starting to go down. He spend most of the day resting.
Ian and Jennifer are both off for the next few days so hopefully mom can get some sleep before she goes to work tomorrow night.

Soon the friends are yawning and stretching their wings. It is time to get some sleep!
Sugar wraps a wing around Dixie and gives him a kiss goodnight. They say their prayers and include a special on just for Nana. The ad prayers for the entire family and flock. Sugar has her own prayers just for Dixie. She loves him so very much and thanks the Lord every single day for bringing him into her life!

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

waddle off to the play tent after a scrumptious supper. Aunt Rose gives them some Biscotti for desert and they take them with their juice boxes to the play tent.
They all get comfortable. They nibble on the biscotti and sip their juice while Sugar starts to read.

"This book is called "Children make Terrible Pets".
Lucy bear is in the forest practicing her twirls when she hears a noise. She hears a squeak from behind a bush. A little boy comes out into the open. Lucy says that he is the cutest critter in all the forest! Lucy decides to call him squeaker since he makes a squeaking noise.
Lucy takes Squeaker home with her. She shows him to her mother. Her mother tells her that children make terrible pets! Lucy asks if she can keep him? Lucy begs and begs until her mother gives in. She tells Lucy that Squeaker is her responsibility and she must take good care of him!
Lucy and Squeaker become inseparable. They play together, they eat together and nap together. Lucy just loves Squeaker so much!
It is not all rosy thought. Squeaker is impossible to potty train. He breaks up all the furniture! He won't go to be when he is told to go.
Just when Lucy thinks nothing could get worse, Squeaker disappears.
Lucy looks in all his favorite hiding place but she can not find him.! Suddenly Lucy picks up his scent. She follows it all thought out the forest until she comes to a clearing.

  Heya, Dixie!
Oh my! Mom is laughing about the wasp getting crispy in the bug zapper! Mom hates those things! Me too, though I haven't seen one up close, and don't want to!

Is that Worldly Cuisine stuff that birds are supposed to like? Made for birds specifically? If it is, I have to say that it is not working, huh? Your Mom makes your bean mash, doesn't she? Not birdie specific food? Mom has tried to give me those types of birdie foods, and I will turn my beak up at them. I don't like nutriberries either. So Mom just doesn't even bother buying them for me, as she knows I much prefer to eat whatever it is she is having, or things like scrambled eggs or rice etc.

Sounds like your Mom got some things accomplished! Are you going on vacay next week? Wonder what your Dad has planned for all of you?! Mom says to get away would be the ideal for you and your Mom and Dad and Candida.

Lost a tail feather this morning--Mom figured it was going to fall out soon as it was not as deep in color as the others. So she had another long grey feather for Wilson (it is a bamboo ball thing with crinkle paper stuffed in it. She has it on the half-wall between the kitchen and dining room.) She named it Wilson after Tom Hanks' buddy in Castaway. All my big grey feathers are in it. She says I need to grow in those feathers now.

Another hot and humid day here. 83, feels like 88, with humidity at 65% and dew point at 68%. Mom ran to Meijer for some grapes, and brought home nectarines and red pluots, too. Those are yummy! They did not have any peas though, so she will have to go elsewhere to find them. She says if I would eat the green or yellow beans that are at the market, she would be so happy. I prefer the peas.

Hope you are having a greyt rest of the day!

Wing hugs coming atcha, your Mom, Candida, Nana, your Dad, and the Skins! Know your Mom will be doing her errands again tomorrow and sure hope that the traffic will be much less so that she is not spending a bunch of time in the car in traffic!

XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO

  Hi Dixie
Moms platelets do run low normal but they dropped which they do sometimes too.Mom maybe always ran low and was never tested for it till about 10 years ago and that is when she found out they were low. She saw a cancer doctor and had lots of tests but thank God they all came back ok. That doctor thought it might be from the fibromyalgia mom has. Mom sure likes the pictures she did and hope you get to see them soon too.Let us know what you think of the devils claw from GNC. We get another BC Day!
Today started out cloudy but soon turned into a nice day. Mom was hanging up clothes on the line outside and different groups of geese went flying over head. Some were in a V form and some were scattered and they were all honking very loud. I even heard them in the house as they flew over!!
I am molting and mom gave me a bath to help with that and then we went out for a sunbath. It was nice to get out and enjoy the day after so much rain and yucky days.

  Hi Dixie !
It's still warm here - but at least not a/c warm (except for when mom was cooking the corn for dinner). Mom went with daddy yesterday morning and came home with some fresh fruits and veggies for me :) After a cookout (first night cool enough), we shared a peach right from the tree - yum ! Of course the weather is supposed to become stickier by tomorrow . . . and I think I heard intermittent thunderboomers for Sunday :( Which is only THREE days away !)

Then I had another bath - I'm just so uncomfortable with this molt. There've been so many feathers on the floor in the morning when I get up, mom says she can make another Cookie ! Silly mom ! I spent lots of time working on my heap yesterday - I now have 3 paper towel rolls that I have to bring into my cage each morning ! Yep, mom did windows while the air wasn't so sticky !

I think that's nice that Shiloh goes with mom and nana whenever she can - they sound like they have a lot of fun doing all the errands !

Back to school to do some more set up today for mom. Dad is home waiting for the electrician since the bathroom fan died and needs replacing. At least that means I'll be out . . . have a great day friends :) love you, mom, dad, nana, the skins and feathers - Cookie

  Heya, Dixie!
So happy to hear that you are less humid--sure wish it would be here! Mom says that it sure helps when you are out and about like your Mom was today. Kim wanted Mom to take her to Oostburg which is about 30 miles away--on Friday. We are supposed to be in the upper 80's, hot and humid, and rain. Mom told her no, that is not a trip for the weather we are having--much better when it is cooler out, as Mom doesn't want to run the a/c full blast in her car. She doesn't want to over stress it any more than it has to be--she remembers the car dying last year in similar weather! And driving in that heat is not fun, nor in the rain. Kim understood the reluctance to drive in the weather--she thought it would be nicer out.

Sounds like your Mom had another busy day today, but we are glad that the traffic is getting a little better. Another two weeks and it will be Labor Day (gasp! already?!) and then things can be back to being quieter on the roads for your Mom.

That Mom overslept this morning! Can you believe that? I sure was waiting for her, staring out the hole in the cage cover and waiting for her to come over to get me out of my house. That was super. Then she was on the phone with Microsoft as she got another Office 365 error--grr! But now she knows how to fix it, so that is good. She figured she could go to the bank today, and go to the apple orchard for popcorn.

Guess who went with? Oh yeah! They have a pneumatic tube at the bank for Mom to put her check or papers in. I love that tube! It makes such cool noises, too, and when it comes back to Mom, it plops down in the holder. I jumped today, cuz it was a drop down tube thing, and not the open the door and the tube slides out kind. But it made lovely noises so I was happy.

The we went to the apple orchard to pick up our popcorn seeds. They also had those yummy prune plums, so Mom picked up those. I was very chatty there, and boy, did the folks who came in after we did love me! One lady has a cockatiel, and another had an Amazon that had gotten sick and died. But she knew I was related to a Senegal. She says that birds are the best pets ever. I have to agree. Anyone who has us knows how wonderful we are!

Hot and humid here again today, but there was a breeze so it was not too bad. Tomorrow is supposed to be the worst--looks like we won't be out of the soupy air until Sunday. Can't wait! Right now it is 76, with Humidity at 76% and dew point at 66%. Sticky!

Wing hugs coming atcha, your Mom, Candida, Nana, your Dad and the Skins! And good thoughts and prayers for all of you, especially you and your achy feet, and Nana's achy hip!

  Sugar, Dixie and Candida love the cupcakes and juice! They always love desert the best!!!
They all enjoyed the story so much but the best part are all the pictures of the lovely birds in the yard. Sugar wishes she had that many wild birds in her yard!

They clean up after their snack. Candida gives Sugar and Dixie a hug and heads off to her night cage!
Sugar and Dixie waddle to the platform. Sugar props Dixie's legs up onto the Hello Kitty pillow and massages his legs. She asks him how his day went. She hope it was a lovely day. She tells him they had a crazy day. Dads wasn't feeling well but wouldn't do anything about it until mom pushed him to do it. He did go to the doctor this morning for his regular check up. He has an abscess under a tooth and needed antibiotics and pain medication but didn't think the doctor could do that. Mom told him of course the doctor could do it since abscess can make you very sick!
He was in really bad pain and finally listened and went back to the doctor. He felt so much better after he took the pain medication. He has to take the antibiotics for 10 days and it should heal it all up! Eventually he will have to have a root canal done.
Mom is hoping tomorrow will be much quieter. It should be. Ian is still on vacation and Jennifer does not have to go in until noon so she can get some sleep. We have some chores to get done also. Ian has some things to take to Goodwill so they will go down there after Jennifer goes to work. Dad will just be resting most of the day. He hasn't got a choice since the pain medication makes him sleepy!!hehehehehehe

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

Thank Aunt Rose for a wonderful supper. They clean up after themselves. Aunt Rose gives them each a cupcake and some juice boxes. They waddle off to the play tent and snuggle close together. They nibble on their cupcakes and sip their juice while Sugar starts to read!

"This book is called "Our Yard is Full of Birds".
A little boy sees lots of birds in his yard. They are in the trees, on the lawn and in the flower garden.
The Phoebe sits on a stonewall and wags his tail at the boy. There are Wrens in a birdhouse that the boys father helped him build.
In the tall pine tree in the back yard, a pair of Cardinals live there all year long.
Speckled Starlings perch high in the trees also. They squeak, whistle and squawk and then fly away.
There are lots of sparrows hopping by the back door. The boy gives them bread crumbs every morning.
Yellow Goldfinches splash in the bird bath in the afternoon. At night time there is a screech Owl sitting in a hole in a tree.
In the morning there are morning doves that coo outside the boys window and wake him up. He loves to hear them coo!
Later in the day there are Woodpeckers drilling into the tree looking for insects to eat.
There are Robins singing on the fence. Yello Warblers and Purple Finches join in. The Mockingbird copies their songs.
In the afternoon Kinglets and Chicadees come to the feeder in the yard.
The tiniest bird is the Red Throated Hummingbird. The Largest is the Black Raven.
Father likes the robins the best and his mother loves the Cardinals. The boy decides he loves them all!"

  Hi Dixie
The humidity is slowly getting higher here with tomorrow and Friday being the worst days. Why can't it just be hot we are tired of that humidity hopefully this will finally be the last of it.
It was pretty much another lazy day here with lots of mom time she just couldn't get moving. When she finally did she only left to go to the grocery store to get a few things and get the rest of the ingredients she needed for the white chicken caprese lasagna she is making for dinner. It's in the oven now and smells yummy.
Im pretty much guessing tomorrow will be a full day with mom too. I love she is such a home body a guy could really get use to this. Have a good night buddy.

Come visit me, Hulk GoodBye BC Thanks For The Memories.

  Hi Dixie
Thanks so much for your offer of your picture and pizap. Mom did a few pictures on pizap and put them on my page at YP so check them out.Thanks for all your help and sure appreciate it too! We keep expecting to come on BC and it not be here so always a good day when its still working!
Today was suppose to be cool but nice and all that jazz but it didn’t happen. The weather guesser was really wrong today. It was cool alright(78) but we had lots of rain and clouds here! Yours truly didn’t get a sunbath that is for sure. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
The nurse called mom this morning and said the blood work came back ok. The one thing the doctor was concerned about came back fine though moms platelets are low and she has to be rechecked for that in 3 months. Moms platelets do run low once in a while and mom suspects she was just born with low platelets. She can usually tell cause she is more tired too when they are low.

We're still here ! ! A whole extra month !

With last week's heat, g'parronts' lawn never got done - mom wouldn't let daddy do it. So guess where they're going today ? And it's not even the weekend ! It's still pretty hot though so they'll go early and get home to me by lunchtime hopefully. With it this hot (high 80's, but dew points between 70-72) and the a/c going pretty much always, daddy says we should have bought stock in the electric company ! That's going to be a wowzer of a bill when it comes ! !

Mom got some more work done in her room yesterday - she hopes to finish tomorrow with the unpacking. Then it's just the decorating - and that part is fun ! There's a new first grade teacher in the building and guess what ? Mom had her way back when ! ! She's feeling old . . .

Hope you have a terrific day and stay cool :) love you, mom, dad, nana, the skins and flock - Cookie who can count to 5 !
