On Dec13th 2013 I surprised Mom with an early Christmas present, an egg! 5 days later I gave her another one, you should have seen the look of shock when she found my first egg in my night cage..I had a DNA test done when I was two but apparently they were wrong, from now on you can just call me Romey, I'm not changing my name, I'll always be my Mom's Romeo!
***************- *******
I met my Mom at a bird fair in 2004, I was only 7 months old, she fell in love with me at first sight, I jumped on her shoulder and knew right away I had found the love of my life and my forever home. Life is good..





A LITTLE POEM FOR MY ROMEO
by Angel Christy

I saw you when I awoke today, you seemed so very near,
but I must have been still dreaming, for I know you can't be here!

They say that time will heal the pain, of that I'm not so sure,
the time we had went by so quick, it seemed like just a blur!

I long to hold you in my wings, just like we used to do,
and stroll down the lovely country roads, as I stare up at you!

Like a BB in a boxcar, I rolled aimlessly around,
until one day there was you, my true love had been found!

I so miss my handsome Prince, and his sweet beak touching mine,
but I cherish all our memories they sustain me through all time!

I'll leave you with a gentle hug, and a kiss to get you by,
leaving you is so hard to do, please forgive me if I cry!

Give my love to your sweet mom, and all of your flock members,
our love's fire has not died, just simply stir the embers!

If you need me I shall never, be very far away,
just look up and say my name, and I'll be on my way!

God Bless you my Romeo, I love you with all my heart, Angel Christy

Hi! My name is ~ Romey~

I am an Umbrella Cockatoo from Oakland, TN.

Burd, Romey, Romes, White Knight, Duke of Dander. King of Hearts, Prince of Sweetness,Romey- -Omey-O and best of all I'm Christine's Big Handsome Love Toy..almost forgot Doofus Dummy, that's what uncle Chuck calls me, gezz isn't that the pot calling the kettle black!

10 years old   F

Umbrella Cockatoo

Pine Nuts, Avicakes, grapes, apples. I love pasta and pizza also.

Romeo's & Christy's Angel Wings Toy Shoppe, and in my outside Aviary when weather permits...

Being poked in a Carry Cage! Mom giving attention to anyone else but me..

She adores me, spends a lot of time cuddling with me, let's us stay outside our cage all day when she's home, and she had an outside aviary built for us birds...What's not to love about that..She also let's me snuggle under her tee-shirt, I really like that!

Nothing about me is quirky, I'm a normal Cockatoo that loves to chew remote controls, telephones, cable cords and any books I find laying around, and demand all the attention I can get! Good night kisses are my specality...I also go to my night cage in Mom's closet at bedtime all by myself if Mom doesn't get me there on time..I need my beauty sleep...

Life is sweet when you live with a Cockatoo!!.

  Hi Miss Romey
Hello everybirdie, Mikey D here to introduce myself to you and our upcoming BOTM campaign. Most of our BC family will remember my beautiful wife-bird Chuey and her BOTM Cattle Drive. After giving my campaign greyt thought I have decided to step back into the history of the United States. It was made easier for me when I recently received a message that the Beakerton Security Company asking for help with a special, secret mission.
It appears that that rascal Black Bart has popped his head back up this time robbing stagecoaches and wagon trains owned by the Beakerton Security Company. Our mission is to take a special load of Parrot Treats from Texas to the sunny state of California by Mule Train. The convoy of wagons will leave Texas and travel through some mighty dangerous, formidable territory. That is where you come in. i need your help in driving these ornery sometimes stubborn long-eared mules, in driving our herd of cattle and replacement horses and mules, and most of all guarding our precious cargo of Nutri-berries and other treats safely to those hungry beaks in California.
Most of you have your saddle horse already, so you'll "ole need be catchin' it up, and pack your saddle bags fer our "Wild West Adventure." Might I add you'd best be polishin' yer guns too, with Black Bart and his band of dirty low-down scoundrels on the lamb you just might be needing it pretty soon.
Now for a wee bit of history on the Wagon Trains of the USA.
By 1836 when Texas gained its independence San Antonio's population had fallen from a peak of around six thousand in 1800 to under one thousand. When Texas became a state in 1845, two very important factors revitalized the city and the surrounding area. The US Army arrived and soon established a series of ten forts to the west of the city, and the second influence was the US Postal Service who began the slow process of building roads across the state into adjoining states.
Mules had advantages over both oxen and horses. Bred from a female horse and a male donkey, the animals were about half way in size between the two. They were strong and sure footed. They lacked the free spirited nature of horses and were, indeed, creatures of habit. A good CAPORAL, the name given to the person in any wagon train in charge of the animals, had only to crack his whip in the morning for the mules to line up not only in front of its assigned wagon but even its assigned place within the team, which could consist of between six and eight animals. Unlike oxen, they did not rely entirely on foraging for the food but had to be fed from foldaway troughs at regular intervals. Their skin could withstand a lot of chafing from pulling heavy loads but was not water proof. They did have one huge disadvantage over oxen. The Oxen interested thieves not at all while mules were highly prized plunder.
See ya tomorrow

  Hi ya Romey~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been too long since I got blogs out to every bird and I wish I had something exciting to share but it's been rather dull around here.
Dad is home for the day since he had to go to his doctor. Just the usual 6 month check up because of the cholesterol medicine he takes. You would think the cat would be all over him since he doesn't see him much but Merlin is still following mom everywhere. She is the one who feeds us so I can't blame him for sticking close by! You wouldn't want to miss a snack!
I will be having "turtle tank" cleaning duties once mom gets back from dropping Ian off at work. He wasn't suppose to work today but someone called out again! Ian picks up most of his hours that way!
I have the very important job of watching George and Gracie while mom washes the tank. They go into a little box which mom calls there summer home! I watch to make sure they don't escape! Gracie is always wanting to get out although I have no idea where she thinks she is going to go. It's a turtle thing I guess!
I hope your day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Romey~
I hope you are having a great day! Just checking in to see how everything is going. I hope the winter stuff left the neighborhood and that spring is right around the corner for you! I know your mom can't wait to try out all the gardening things she learned in her class! I bet you are going to have a really big harvest this year!! We just hope your mom really enjoys herself!
We have been busy with Mandy. She has a degenerative spinal disease and doesn't have much time left. Mom is doing all she can to help her but there is no cure. It is a disease that is very common with German Shepherd's. Mandy is nearly 17 so mom says we have been blessed to have had her for so long! There is no pain with this disease so that is a good thing!!
You all enjoy the day!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

...to make it to the prestigious 10K HOF Club is a big source of pride to most, but not so much to me, well you know how I always shunned the bright spot lights! My flock is proud that I have joined the sophisticated elite, but I would rather take a walk down some peaceful country road with you, just like old times!

...I first want to thank you for all the happy times you provided me me in my past life, especially on Valentine's Day! I shall carry those pleasant memories with me throughout eternity! Give your sweet mammy my love, she was always so kind to me! There seems to be a big push to get me to the 10K HOF Club by many of our old friends! You know I never did seek fame of that sort, but it seems to be important to them, shoot Romey, I won't know what to do when I get there! My idea of a party would be sitting on your patio with you and aunt Betty having a sip of lemonade! Have a great lover's day my sweet old friend, see ya again sometime....

  Hi ya Romey~
I hope you are having a great day! I heard that BC was all messed up this morning! They usually do that on Sunday mornings but maybe they were busy yesterday!
The school bus was late this morning!!! I know what you are thinking~~Sugar has no little kids in her house so why is she worried about the school bus being late??
Well, the little kids love to stand in the driveway while waiting for the school bus and pump their arms up and down! This causes the many big rigs going down our street to honk their loud honking horns!!!! A few times is cute but when the school bus is 8 minutes late, you get it 22 times! It quit being cute after the 3rd time! Lets hope Mr. Bus Driver will be much more punctual tomorrow! Sugar will be checking up on him!!!!!!
Ian worked his first ever overnight last night. He came right home and went to sleep!HAHAHAHAHAHA Mom has already cleaned the carpet in the living room, mopped the dining room and done 2 loads of laundry! She would love to come home and go to sleep but I am use to my schedule and need to have my toast and my apples and tell mom all about what went on while she was at work! Since we are all sleeping while she is at work, there usually isn't much to tell!
I hope your day is just wonderful!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a great day! I am supervising laundry today! It's a rough job but some bird has to do it! I really don't know what mom would do without me here to yell and fuss while she is trying to get chores done! I really do think it makes her move faster!hahahahahahaha
Well the Seahawks have shown us how to win a game in 3 minutes and now how to lose one in 26 seconds! They are still my team, I am still a 12th bird and I really am very proud of all their achievements this year! I hope they are proud of themselves too and just move on!
One very nice story is that Chris Pratt~from Seattle and the star of Guardians of the Galaxy~and Chris Evans~from Boston and is Captain America~made a bet. If the Hawks won Chris Evans would visit Children's Hospital in Seattle dressed as Captain America! If the Patriot won Chris Pratt would visit a charity in Boston dressed as Star Lord! Even thought the Patriots won, Chris Evans is coming to Children' Hospital Seattle!! They are both really good guys! Those kid's are going to be so excited!
Punxsutawney Phil says there will be 6 more weeks of winter! I really don't think that was a hard call at all!!! Did you know that in the old days the use to eat the groundhog! Is that gross or what???? ICK! The poor groundhog and really?? Who eats groundhogs? Guess they didn't have McDonalds back then!hahahahahaha

  Hello sweet Romey dear, from your Angel & dad
...I hope you are happy, you probably already know that my daddy and I travel together, neither of us would have it any other way! We are both crying at the same time, which is the way it usually is! We are full well aware that things can never be the way they used to be, but that don't stop our hearts from breaking! Life, even in Heaven, is hard without you, but we are adjusting slowly! We are happy to hear your momma had so many great Birthday celebrations with her best friends, she is a great lady and deserves the very best! We are in for one more day of overcast, but our temps will be very moderate, in the high thirties and lower forties for at least the next week, that is very do-able! Dad has a VA appointment at the QC Prosthetics place to get some new diabetic shoes and compression stockings, but that won't take to long, hopefully! Happy hump day my dear friends, be good for your mom & dad, and don't forget to love each other! Give our love to all the happy souls in your loving home, see ya tomorrow...

Love ya forever, Angel Christy & our Dallas group

PS~Your new box of Angel wings Toys will be shipped tomorrow, we hope you and Rusty will get many hours of pleasure out of them...

  Hi sweet Romey, from your Angel
...I have come by a day early to wish my sweet aunt Betty a very Happy Birthday! I know full well that it is on Jan 20th, but I wanted to avoid the rush, you know I don't care for crowds! Do you and her friends and family have anything special planned for her, she is so sweet, and very worth any effort made for her! I know things can never be like they once were, but that don't keep me from missing you so much! I was never much until you suddenly came into my life, then you suddenly left! Please give your mom my best Angelic love, it is very real,and wish her the Happiest Birthday ever...

  Hello Romey~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!!
You will not believe what happened here last night! Mom was cleaning up the kitchen and put the trash bag out on the balcony. Sneaky Merlin went out there without mom knowing and jumped over the balcony!! He is perfectly fine, which is a miracle, but mom says unless he has his harness and leash on he is never going out there again!
She noticed he was missing and went to check the balcony and didn't see him. She checked the whole house out and he was no where to be found. She looked over the balcony but did not see him. She grabbed her jacket and went around the building, climbed down the embankment, sloshes through the moat and climbed up the wall to get to the downstairs neighbors patio. She saw Merlin run onto the patio and called to him. He came right to her! She bundled him up in her coat and brought him back home! She was muddy and banged her knee while climbing the wall but at least Merlin was okay. She checked every inch of that cat and he is just fine! Mom explained to him that cat do not really have 9 lives! He stuck to her like velcro for the rest of the night. Just before we went to bed, he was at the door howling to go out! Not too smart, is he? He sure is one lucky cat because it was only a few minutes between the time mom put the trash bag out and going downstairs to find him! If he had done that when mom wasn't here, no one else would have noticed him gone!
Have a fabulous evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Miss Romey
Hello everybirdie, time to rise and shine. We will finish loading the shuttles and grab a quick breakfast before the sun rises over the BC castle. Then we are off to the warm, tropical Rain Forest of Brazil. We will land in Belem Brazil. From Belem, we shall begin our dangerous journey into the interior of the Amazon Rain Forest, following the Amazon River and the Orinoco Water Shed.
"I have spoken to a dear friend of mine, who once flew free in the Amazon. He was trapped and brought into Brazil’s $1billion illegal pet trade. It targets many highly desirable psittacids. Domestic and international demands for Brazil’s parrots is enormous. He warns us that according to a recent report by researchers David Pearson and Les Beletsky, domestic aviculture is an “iconic (activity) in all classes of Brazilian society”. Over 70 percent of wild-taken parrots are sold domestically, despite harsh laws that prohibit possession of wild-caught psittacids. The remainder are shipped to the USA, and Europe. We must be ever watchful, and careful least we too become part of this illegal trade in wild Parrots."
"Come and get it" BB calls between gulps of steaming hot coffee.
The boys yawn, and try to go back to sleep. They had spent the night taking turns feeding and caring for the baby Amazon. The baby is wide eyed and ready for breakfast as Kiddo opens one eye and looks down at the bundle of energy snuggles beneath him for warmth. " You sure don't sleep very long do you little one?"
After a quick hearty breakfast, the shuttles are loaded and with one final glance around the KB the Amazon adventurers and baby with his watchful foster Moms Dory, Sugar, Jenny-Lynn, Sweetie and Spot are belted in. With a final look around at BC and home, they head south-east towards their starting point in the resort city of Belem, on the Atlantic coast of Brazil. The flight is uneventful, and Baby sleeps quietly only waking long enough to eat and take a quick look out the windows at the clouds and blue skies around them. Landing carefully under the expert talons of Ms BB and Mr Sky, the shuttles touch down outside the city in a secluded location, where it will be safe for them to exit the shuttles and get their bearings. Having left the cold and snow of Canada and many parts of the US behind, the sun and heat feels good after the long flight.
" Hulk, Kiddo, Sky, Picabo, Silver, Pearl and I will go scout out the area. Wait here till we return. Be care and keep an eye out of humans." Amando says, as the boys head off towards Belem. The others unload the backpacks, tents and gear they brought along, readying everything for the long trip up the Amazon River. After a short while the scouts return with word that "it should be safe to explore some today in Belem, but stick together, never be alone."

  Hi Miss Romey
Hello fellow Adventurers, as promised today we will pick the baby's name. Due to the number of names I have made a separate list and posted it onto my page--PLEASE pick one name and let me know your choice--they are all greyt. Remember the baby is a BOY.
Rushing into the food tent, everybirdie places their food on the counter, as Sky and BB get busy cleaning and blending them through the food Processor. "WAIT SKY, not the Blackberry, it's not a fruit it's an ipod." Hulk yells as Sky prepares to drop the blackberry into the mixture.
Spot finishes feeding the baby by regurgitating food into his hungry mouth. "There, all full" he hands the baby back to Sugar who makes a disgusted face and tries not to gag.
"SPOT, you really know what you're doing" Parker says looking sorta nauseated
"THAT was so, owwwww, yuck!" BooBoo says holding her beetle in her beak. "GROSS!" she says, tossing her head back sending the beetle into the air. It falls straight into her beak. "YUMMY! Now that's how I like my food. Fresh, squirmy and crunchy"
"Now, that's GROSS!" Jenny-Lynn says, turning her attention back to the sleepy eyed baby in Sugar's wings. "Finnegan, how'd you like to take a turn watching baby for a while so we Zon Girls can get something for supper?"
Finnegan takes the little fluffy baby gently into his wings, looking at him with soft, wide eyes. "We'll get you home, don't worry little fellow"
The moment is broken by BB's loud yell, "SKY! What are you eating?"
Sky turns red, a large ladle in one wing, his beak full, " NUFFIN"
"Did you eat the baby's supper?" She eyes him and the half empty pot of blended food.
"I just tried a little, you know to be sure it tasted right without the pickles in it" Sky replies
BB shakes her head, taking the pot and ladle away from Sky. "We put this into small jars for our trip, unless you want to feed him?" she says with a shiver.
"We'll take turns BB, we're all pretty good at feeding fingers, hands and toys, so we can all take a turn feeding baby." Kiddo says proudly, smiling at the little sleeping chick, "it'll be good experience for us"
With the baby soundly sleeping in Finnegan's wings, the hungry birds fill up their plates from some of Lizzie and BB's fine cooking at the food tent. With full bellies, they set about fueling the shuttles, packing provisions, and building a bed for baby to sleep in during their long trip up the Amazon River.
"Jenny-Lynn, you really think we'll be able to find the baby's parents in all that Rain Forest?" Sweetie asks as she packs her favorite toy and some extra pellet and Finnegan's bag of Kaytee handfeeding formula into her backpack
"We'll find them. We're Zon's we don't give up, we don't back down and we don't ever break our promise to a baby" Jenny-Lynn says with deep conviction.
"Let's get some sleep and we'll leave at dawn. We need to take turns feeding baby every two hours or whenever his crop is empty, whose first?" Amando asks

  Hi Miss Romey
Hello everybirdie, Amando here with our third day's Adventure update. I want to say the names you are coming up with are great. I will post them in Sunday's blog and everybirdie can vote on their favorite choice. The name with the most votes on Monday will be our new name for the Baby Amazon. Talking about baby's I sure hope we can find his Momma soon, he's starting to get pretty hungry.
"Chirp, chirp, CHIRP!!!!!!!!!" the baby cries as he stares at Jenny-Lynn and Sugar who are snuggling him close to help keep him warm. "CHIRP!!!!!"
"He's hungry, what are we suppose to feed him?' Sweetie asks Kaji who is watching from a safe distance. "Do you think Lizzie might cook something for him?"
"I don't think babies eat food like that, he needs special baby food, mushed up bugs, and worms and spiders" BooBoo says, hurrying to bring the baby a nice plump beetle she just caught.
"Boo Boo, stop, baby birds don't eat that stuff, not baby Parrots anyways!" Cori grabs her fister by the wing to slow her down
"That's correct, a baby Amazon needs high protein foods, warm, partially digested and fresh. Fruit, leaves, bugs and other foods the parents find when foraging. Being how young he is, he needs fed every hour or so, from sun-up to sun-set" Jenny-Lynn explains
"Ok, spread out everybirdie, look for fruit, veggies, leaves, and other healthy foods, seeds and nuts especially" Amando directs, as he rushes off in search of dinner for the little hungry fluff ball.
" I have a couple pickles" Sky says loudly, he'll love them!"
"SKY!"" BB frowns at Sky making him turn red, " babies don't eat pickles, and besides what are you doing with those pickles?"
"Look I see a walnut tree" Sky points and tries to get away as fast as he can, but BB follows him telling him all the dangers of too many pickles all the way there.

" It's ok baby, I'll take care of you" Jenny-Lynn tickles the baby under the chin, " we'll get you back to your Momma safe and sound."
"Just wait until I get my beak on those poachers, they'll regret stealing baby Parrots" Sugar adds, an angry glow in her eyes that only Amazons have.
"Let me at 'em, I'll show them a thing or two" BonBon yells in her highest Budgie voice. Spot holds his fister back as she gets worked up over someone stealing baby Birds from their nest holes.
" Look what we found!" Amando says happily as the group of foragers return to join Sugar and JL with their treasures." We have walnuts, chestnuts, oats, wheat, apples, a pear and someone found this, a Blackberry.
" Let's go to the Kissing Booth food tent and get our little friend fed, then we'll get ready to start our trip to Brazil" Amando says eggcitedly.

  Hi Miss Romey
Hello everyone, Amando here with today's continued adventure BOTM blog. We are certainly heading off into dangerous territory as we return this "Baby" to his parents and flock. I need your help as we face countless dangers, unknown mysteries and spiders. Amando shivers at that thought. We must be fearless, bold and brave.
"AHHHHHHHHH, isn't he cute?" Little Angel says looking softly at the baby in Amando's wings. " Dixie, look, a baby"
"We can't keep him Little Angel, he needs to go home to his parents and family" Amando reminds her
" What is he?" Dixie asks smiling, and making soft coos to the curious bundle of down
"Maybe it's a Conure?" Hulk says
" I think it's some kind of Amazon Parrot" Jenny-Lynn says startling everybirdie, as she moves in closer with Sugar and Sweetie. " Yep, it's an Amazon, too young to know what species but it's an Amazon alright"
"Aren't you just a cute little baby" Sugar says taking the chick from Amando, and hugging him close to her chest. " Don't you worry, we'll get you back home to your parents"
Jenny-Lynn takes the soft fluffy baby and holds him up at eye level. The baby bird coos softly as he looks into Jenny's eyes. "MOMMA?"
"OH NO! I'm not your Momma baby, but I will help look after you until we find her for you" Jenny-Lynn looks around to make sure everybirdie is in agreement. " all of us will go with you and Amando to the Amazon River and take you back home."
" I think the baby needs a name. We can't keep calling him BABY. So, let's think of a name for our little boy baby. Post them on my page and then we will all get to vote on the name we will call our new found friend." Amando says as he watches the girls kissing and cuddling the little down-covered baby.

"Jenny-Lynn, do you think we can get him to Brazil and back home ok?" Sweetie asks, uncertain of what might lie ahead.
"Of course. We will take the Shuttle, I am sure Ms BB will help us out, to Brazil, then travel by foot and boat up the Amazon River until we find our baby's flock, a piece of Avi-cake. You see, it'll be easy." even as she spoke Jenny-Lynn knew the dangers that lie ahead; snakes, dangerous animals, insects and.. "she closed her eyes, and kissed the baby. "It'll be fine Sweet Baby"

  Hi Miss Romey
I'm Amando and I am your JANUARY BOTM candidate-I hope I can count on your daily votes and support!
Good morning everybirdie, my name is Amando and I am a member of the Sky Flock and this January's BOTM candidate. Not too many of you will know me well as I am one of the quieter frother's of Sky. Bazeball vans might recall that I played on my friend Jenny Lynn's Rain Forest Raiders Team.
I came to be part of this large Sky Flock out of necessity. My Momma Deb and my former owner had been friends for years when the subject of Amazons came up one day in conversation. I had lived in other homes before my arrival at Momma's friends aviary but never seemed to stay too long in any one place. See I am rather loud by some people's standards and have a rather short temper at times. That being as it is, I ended up in a breeding aviary with a large outdoor, indoor flight and a very pretty girl as company. Now to most of you boys out there that would have been a wonderful life. It would have been except that girl, she didn't take too kindly to me being in her home. She attacked me one day and pulled out all the feathers on one wing, and bit my wing so badly they never did regrow. I was so afraid of her that from that day on I hid as far away from her as I could.
That is how I came to once more be looking for a new home. Momma's friend gave me to Momma knowing I would never have to leave again and that I would be safe and happy living out my days as a pet not a breeder. I am still afraid of other birds, and often react very aggressively to their presence. I like Sweetie, so long as she stays in her cage away from me, and we talk all the time. I have even took it upon myself to teach her to scream and yell just like I do. She's doing an awesome job, but I don't get the annoyed looks I sometimes receive when My Momma Deb hears the two of us screaming happily about, well, nothing.
Enough about me. What I really need is your help. On one of my daily walk-abouts I found something, or should I say, somebody. While strolling around on BC I found THIS! Amando holds out a small ball of feathery down with big dark curious eyes for his friends to see. The tiny baby chirps softly, looking from one birdie's face to another. "Momma?" he asks softly
"I need your help. We must return the baby to his parents in South America. He was bird-napped from his tree hole nest by poachers. Getting him there will not be easy. We will have to get him safely back home by taking a trip up the Amazon River. It won't be easy, there will be lots of dangers and risks, but knowing that you faced Black-Bart the Cattle Rustler fearlessly, I am certain we can do this together.
your pal

  Hello Romey~
I hope you had a wonderful day and I hope your Christmas was fabulous! I bet mom and Julie had a great time! Just to have a peaceful day to hang out with a good friend sounds like the perfect day to us!
Mom got home late from work this morning so my schedule was all off! At first I was pretty upset but it turned out okay since mom doesn't have to work tonight and spent lots of time with me.
There were lots of people at the store very early today. All the Christmas stuff was 75% off so they were grabbing stuff right and left! Mom managed to grab the cards for next year and two really nice shopping bags. They have Christmas pictures on them but who cares! One of them will be our new book bag since they are water proof. The old one is starting to rip on the bottom!
There was no traffic to report on the radio news show this morning so they were reporting when each mall was going to open!!! You would think everyone would be tired of shopping at this point but it certainly didn't look that way! Ian was suppose to work 4 hours today but he ended up staying for 8 since it was so busy. All those little kids who got gift cards could not wait to get to Toys R Us and find a new treasure! It's always exciting when they have their own money to spend!
Enjoy your evening and I hope it's just perfect!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

PS Chipper made 10K today so I hope you will congratulate her if you haven't already!! Thanks!

  A note from Ms Romey on my page, oh my goodness...
...Christmas for this Angel is complete, there is nothing in Heaven or earth that could make me happier than hearing from my dearest old friend! As for the toys, just stand by, I was in the Toy Factory recently and you have a ton of more new toys more being prepped! The dad has to go out in the cold old garage and drill more sponge blocks, I know that is what you and Rus Ed seem to prefer! BTW, we had to switch to a new operating system on our iMac, and the new Yosemite System does not support Yahoo messenger, we will need help to get it back up and running, in case I ever want to talk secretly to you, LOL! Love to you and your family sweet girlfriend, you are one in a million...

Merry Christmas Day Romey, from your Heavenly Angel

  Romey my dear, we just wrote you a very nice note
...and the cyber space ate it up, bummer! We are so pleased that we could do anything that pleases you so much, we really try! We have at least 200 toys made from over the Winter, most of which are for you and Rusty! It is our way of saying thank you for the hundreds of dollars worth of toy parts you sent to us, to inspire our shoppe and make so many birds happy, you really rocked it! Dad's home nurse gave him a great bill of health once again, all his numbers were great, but he tries so hard, he does not want to be 20 years old again, just have some quality in the years he has left! We are very well aware that we have fallen out of favor with our precious aunt Betty, and we are also aware that the only thing that remains constant is change itself, we are picking up the pieces and moving forward! Please tell my aunt Betty to take her meds like she is supposed to, and you be a good girl, like I know you can be (sometimes), LOL!

As always forever from your, special Angel

...we already figured something was wrong with our sweet aunt Betty, truthfully we suspected her trick knee was doing tricks! Hopefully the cold/flu symptoms will take care of themselves! Be a good girl while she is down a little, she always takes such good care of you my beautiful friend! Dad & I insist that you and Rus have toys from our toy factory while we can still make and send them, you have been such a large part of it all for so many years, and we do not want anything in return, we shall never be able to pay you back for providing all the parts and loving inspiration for all you have done, thanks for that! My heart aches for the old times, when things were good, but that can never be again, I will leave it at that, have a nice day sweet girl friend...

  Hi pretty old friend, from your buddy ACD
...Romey my beautiful lady friend, this is the day we remember the attack on Pearl Harbor, and our forced entry into WWll, we remember that date with solemn reverence! This is also the day that in 2007, Jenny joined our precious Bird Channel, my goodness, that seems like an eternity ago, but we have made so many wonderful friends, bird and human, but managed to make a few friends angry with us along the way! It has been a fun trip though, we wouldn't have missed it for the world! Have a great Sunday and enjoy your football games if you watch them, we are going to collect our thoughts and try to have a relaxing day, please give our love to all in your Sunday home, see ya tomorrow...

Love on this day and always, Angel Chrity & our patriotic Dallas family

  Hello Romey~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Lots of cleaning and some cooking going on here. Kind of boring really but I have a new toy in the play cage to keep me occupied.
Mom put the Trans Siberian Orchestra CD on for us to listen to. She just love the Christmas Canon. She love the Canon and this version of it is very beautiful! I'm enjoying it. The new computer does not have the same music program as the old one so mom has not figured out how to get more music on her MP3 player! Ian gave mom his old IPod since he got a smart phone and it does everything the Ipod does. Now mom has to figure out how to use it! She can turn it on and off! So far that's about it!Hahahahahaha It's rather embarrassing to have a mom who is so clueless when it comes to technology!
Sorry about just leaving a note to your note on Facebook. Usually is gives a spot that says leave a comment but we didn't see that when we went to your mom's page! Like I said, the woman is hopeless!
You enjoy your day and I do hope it's perfect!

  `Ü´ Are you ready for some FOOT~BALL???
A 3rd Annual Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl Game of … FOOT~BALL???

This evening … to be played on the Milonga Page (#165848)

8:00 pm Eastern
7:00 pm Central
6:00 pm Mountain
5:00 pm Pacific
4:00 pm Aleutian

Jake <Ö) may have been a “BAD Parrot”, but he says it well: “Be there or BE SQUARE!!!”


Well, the Defense still needs to know their jobs, so without any further delay, let’s get started with the Job Descriptions, Miss Romey!

Strong Safety – Generally lines up in the secondary*, but often aligns close to the line of scrimmage In most Defenses this Player lines up over the Tight End and is responsible for both playing the pass and supporting the run.

Free Safety – Lines up deepest in the secondary. He defends the deep middle of the field and seldom has man-to-man** responsibilities. A coach wants this Player free to read the QuarterBack and take the proper angle to break up or intercept any forward pass thrown over the middle or deep to the sidelines.

Defensive Back – A member of the Defensive secondary. Defensive Backs form the line of Defense whose job is to prevent Receivers from making catches and then gaining lots of yards after the catch.

CornerBack – Lines up on one of the wide sides of the field, usually opposite an offensive Receiver. Called a CornerBack because he is isolated on the “corner” edge of the Defensive alignment.

Defensive End – Lines up at the end of the Defensive line. The job of the Defensive End is to contain the Running Back on running plays to the outside, and rush the QuarterBack*** on passing plays.

Defensive Tackle – Lines up on the interior of the Defensive line. The duties of a Defensive Tackle include stopping the Running Back on running plays, getting pressure up the middle on passing plays, and occupying Blockers so the LineBackers can roam free.

LineBacker – Lines up behind the Defensive linemen and in front of the Defensive backfield. The LineBackers are a Team's second line of Defense. Each Team has two outside LineBackers.

Nose Tackle – a Defensive Tackle who lines up directly across from the Center. Also known as the Nose Guard, the primary responsibilities of the Nose Tackle are to stop the run and occupy the Offensive lineman to keep them from blocking the LineBackers.

  It seems to me that it is MUCH more complicated to try to understand Defense than it is Offense! (But then again, I am a simple GRITS GirlBird, and unaccustomed to such strategizing. We are more frequently seen serving snacks and refreshments during FootBall Games. **TeeHee**) The drawings I have to support today’s information on the Defense eggsplain more of where Defensive Players can line up. The eggsecution of Defensive plays is much more involved than I could ever hope to delve into in this format. I suppose that means that the Defensive Players on the Teams in the Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl have a lot of improvising to look forward to during the Game!

It is my sincere desire that the information on both the Offensive and Defensive Squads has served to make your spectator participation in the Game of FootBall more enjoyable, and that it has been a help in preparing the Players for the Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl. It has been an honor and a privilege to research and present what I could find to give you more pleasure in The Game.


À la prochen frois, mon amie,
[Until next time, My Featheriend]
`Ü´ Ruby Francesca Begonia ♥


*secondary—the Defensive players who line up behind the LineBackers and wide on the corners of the field opposite the receivers and defend the pass. These defensive players, who are called Defensive Backs, are separated into Safeties, CornerBacks, and, occasionally, Nickel Backs (an eggstra Defensive Back who is used in some Defensive Formations).

**man-to-man [coverage]—pass coverage in which every potential Offensive Receiver is assigned to a particular Defender Each Defensive Player must stick to his Receiver like glue and make sure he doesn’t catch a pass thrown in his direction.

***rush the QuarterBack—use whatever moves the Player has to get a sack, or disrupt the throw.
