  Hello Sparkle!
How the heck are ya? I know…shocking to see me here, huh? Well, mom and I have dedicated more time to each other, the rest of the flock, household chores, relaxing…you know…life. Which is why we haven’t been on BC for a long time. But that doesn’t mean I don’t miss you or think of you often, because I do! And even if this is a cut/paste message, rest assured that when I came to your page, I remember something special about you that made me smile.

What have I been up to? Well, I have my own room now! Mom and dad call it “the bird cellar” (see pics below) because MOST of the room belongs to Peachy and I, but daddy was allowed to use our closet to store some of his wine. The best part is that when my parrots are home but can’t have their eye on me, I’m in my room but not my cage. It’s awesome! Mom hung a big tree branch above my cage with some toys, and I’m next to the window so I can see out, but also hide if I see something scary. Got my radio, own TV. And mom made me little “birdie furniture” she painted all pretty to store my treats and toys.

Peachy is doing well. She still stumbles around her cage a bit, but other than that, she is a-ok. She's even singing and tweeting again!

We are also considering a new flock-mate. Daddy has given the green light. (“But just ONE…unless we win the lotto and move to a plantation!” he says) Since mom has kind of sound-proofed the bird cellar (the key word here is kind-of), she broke dad down and he agreed she could bring home another flock member. But she isn’t 100% ready. I think she’s worried how I’ll react since sometimes I occasionally, rarely, every-now-and-then, kind-of, sort-of act like a spoiled brat. (A-hem!) Anywho, on one wing, I’m a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-feathers kind of bird. Hardly anything bothers me. If something new is brought into the house, as long as I can inspect it, we’re good. No freaking out…no birdie tantrums. I’m like as easy going as they come. Especially for a Conure! But mommy…well I am her BABY. And I aint sure I want to SHARE her with anybirdie else. I have allowed another bird to perch on mom’s shoulder, but that was at my Aunt Cathy’s house. And I did let mom hold our friend Knuckles…but she was visiting, not staying. Big diff. So if you have any advice on going from a 1-parrot house to a multi-parrot house, PLEASE SHARE.

Well I don’t want to squawk your ear off all in one sitting but please please please drop me a line and let me know what’s new, how you’re doing, and any and all gossip about BC news. Oh, have to leave you with this: Question: What kind of bird sticks to sweaters?? Answer: A vel-CROW! hehehehe

Love and hugs always, even when I disappear. Cuz you’re my buddy and I hope you know, in my heart you’re always near.

Come visit me, Blanche, Caymus & Peachy (2004-2010) - Thank you for BOTD!.

  Hi Sparkle,
We had bad news today about Clyde's mum Kathy. She's back in hospital for yet another surgery! This time she's got a tumor on her spine & it's stopping her from walking!
Please everybirdie, pray for her & vote for Clyde!
We want to cheer her up, if that is possible!
For you, who don't know Clyde! He's the 3 year old cockatoo from Ocean City MD!
Thanks, my friend!

Yes, i got used to my new house real well now & i like it a lot! Mum did the same thing, she put all my toys in like they were in the old one & that's the way i like it!
You're right, it can be scary & exciting all the same!

  Hi Sparkle,
mum's really sorry that the party was a bit of a flop! She didn't know there was that much to it. She thought it was just normal blogging!! We have never been to a party like this before!
Mum would love to know how to do it properly! Jack's mum tried explain it to mum, but she can be really thick headed sometimes, (don't tell her, i said that, please!)
Of course, i hope that you still had a bit of fun! Thank you for coming & liking my new cage so much!
Hope you got home alright & that you're not too tired today from the long flight!

  Hi Sparkle,
thanks so much for liking my new house. I'm getting more & more used to it, but don't like it so much when i have to go inside & i'm not eating inside either. Mum has to put my food on the play top! Now she thinks, maybe it was all too fast for me or i'm just being a spoiled, stubborn quaker boy!
We're still deciding when the cage warming party will be, b/c mum works on the w/e, so we'll have to do it sometime next week. Would that be ok with you?

  Hi Sparkle,
hip hip hooray....my new house is finally here & i already live in it!!!! Have a look at the pics mum just put up! There's some of me when i was in the cage for the very first time, then there's one with the old & the new next to each other, just after it was assembled, but still bare! And then the final result, as it is right now & we LOVE it!!! What do you think?
Guess what? Mum assembled it all by herself! You should have seen dad's eyes when he came home! It took her most of the day, but she did it & i watched every step of it! Mum's very proud of me, b/c it was such an easy transition! (Well, that's what she thinks anyway! Where is my old cage???)
She put it on the balcony for the time being ( when she rolled it away, i said: "bye bye!") She wants me to have a little sun bath in it every day now, if the weather permits it! We'll see about that!!!
Thanks so much for being there with me for all this long time waiting!
Here comes an extra special vote for you & of course, a very huge hug,
Jivu ♥

Mum has a feeling the antibiotics are finally kicking in & doing their job! She's feeling "almost" normal, with only the occasional coughing fit! But, now dad's got it, bummer!!!
Hope i won't get it!

I promise, as soon as the cage is standing here, we will send out pics! Mum can't wait!
Still no change in mum's condition! I think she might have to go to the doc, i get worried about her!
She looks & feels like a zombie!!!
We guess the cage will take about 10 days to get here!
Wow yeah, then i can start spring in a brand spanking new house, all clean & shiny! Mum can't wait to chuck the old one out! Have a good one!

  Hi Sparkle,
sorry, i haven't been on for a day or two, but we had dinner guests last night & it got too late to blog.
Now, mum's got a nasty cough & doesn't feel so crash hot today! Hopefully it won't develop into the flu, which is going round here. She hasn't had one in ages & hates it!
Still, she has to go to work soon!
We got sad news!
Buddy an umbrella cockatoo from Ocean City Marylands past away on Wednesday morning & his mum Kathy is devastated & very very very sad, so is my mum! She's been crying so much & i didn't know what was wrong with her!
He was such a good buddy & he died so tragic!
He always picked on himself, specially when his mum was away. he picked so much on this hole in his chest, that it started bleeding so badly & wouldn't stop, that he went into shock & the vet couldn't do anything for him anymore, just get him out of his misery!
Please say hello to Kathy, she'd be really appreciating it!

  Hi Sparkle,
no black toos for a few days, but mum went for a walk with her daughter today & what did they see? 3 Galahs (rose colored cockatoos, the ones with the pink & gray feathers.) They were just there in front of them all of a sudden, but they flew off when mum & skin sister came too close & no camera off course!!!
My w/e was ok, i had my bath & lots of play time!
It's warming up here & soon it'll be spring!
Hope you have a good one!

Hey Sparkle! Nice to see you. My human had a bad dentist day yesterday, so we're behind on blogging too...it's so hard to find good secretaries nowadays! lol And tomorrow she's lunching and shopping with the girls....and I'll be in cage lockdown!

  Hi Sparkle,
thanks for flying by & the vote. It was such a drama with ordering that cage! Mum couldn't get through to them by phone or fax, but
would you believe it, mum finally got on to that company & ordered the cage over the phone last night! She only had to dial some extra numbers to get to the States, even though, it is a 1800 number! Mum thought, those 1800 numbers are international, but they're not! Well, she found out the hard way!
But now there is another problem, which will delay the delivery of my new, shiny cage! She forgot to raise the limit on her credit card..Doh!!!
Anyway, i'll get it eventually!
She saw the black toos again today, they were very close up, right above her in a tree! Gorgeous!

Yeah, the new cage will be very similar in shape & size than the one i've got now, only it won't rust, like this one & it's not even 2 years old! Mum's just sick of buying a new cage every 2 years! I'll let you know more when it arrives! That's a great idea what your mum does, where does she hide your food?

oh, what did you do to your flight feathers? Sometimes i used to have a crooked tail feather.
I love water too & hop into the shower with mum & Sundays i get my bath! Sure helps with the preening!
World Youth Day is in full swing here now!
Mum & dad saw a lot of "pilgrims" this morning when they went shopping! They were all carrying their country's flags & some were playing drums & guitars & they were singing! B/c of all that, the shops were nice & empty!

Hey Sparkle! Glad to see your cute beak again! Hope you've all been well and happy. We've had lots of storms here this year, really wet and flood conditions. Now it's hot and humid and LOTS of mosquitos. And to think we were complaining in the winter about the cold temps! I guess we never know how good we have it...Have a great day! Cya..
