I was looking for a cockatoo and our vet knew someone that had a new baby and couldn't devote enough time to Cleo. He was well taken care of but needed more attention. It was love at first sight..

Hi! My name is Cleo

I am an Umbrella Cockatoo from Spicewood, TX.

Pretty boy. Sweet Beak.

30 years old   M

Umbrella Cockatoo

I love millet. Cream pie too but I don't get that very often.

On my Daddy's lap.

When I have to get back on my perch. I like lap time.

She pet's me and loves me. We cuddle when she comes home from work. She spoils me a little too. Well, maybe alot!

I've developed a "quirky habit" this past year. Ya see, I'm a picky eater and for most of my life I've only eaten pellets, grapes, banana and pear. Ewwww, I won't touch a vegetable no matter how much Mom tries. Anyway, I got a taste of whipped cream once and now I think everything white on Mama's plate is good stuff. Every time she has a plate of food I want a taste. If it's white, I dive in. I've learned to taste things now and found there are lots of other things I like. Believe it or not, I even ate saurkraut. I eat some veggies now and I love pasta and rice. Things are good here!.

Hey Cleo, I’m just flyin’ by real quick to tell you a “joke of the day!” (hey, no groaning…I SWEAR this one is funny!) Ok, so…..how was the Roman Empire cut in half? ??????????? With a pair of Caesars! hahahohohehehe!!! Oh come on now, you totally laughed! I saw you! (grin) Big birdy hugs and a vote coming your way!

  Hi Cleo!
Caymus here. Haven't visited your page for a while so thought I'd stop by and see what's shakin? Well mom really outdid herself this morning trying to hide my food in my cage. Both food bowls (one with pellets and dried veggies), the other with my Beak Appetite) were covered in paper towels and popsicle sticks. That took me all of 20 seconds to destroy. Then she had my brocoli clipped to the bar cages. It's now half in my belly, half flung across the floor. And that silly little green barrel had a nutriberry in it. Wow. I guess mom thought that since she took that "enrichment" toy out of my cage for a few days I'd forget how to open it. What do I look like? A cat? Mom's going to have to learn that she's gotta get up pretty early in the morning to fool this conure! hehehehe Big hugs and a vote coming your way....stop on by real soon!

  Hi Cleo!
If you’re taking a vacation with your parronts this year…or they going off without you (hmph!), then I’m here with Caymus’ “green idea of the day” just for you world travelers out there! 1) Touring a new city? No better way to see the sites either by walking or public transportation. When in Rome, they say. 2) If you must rent a car, rent a hybrid! 3) When dining out, eat “local”…if in Maine, have lobster. Trip to Washington? Try the salmon. No sense having a steak in Key West when you could be dining on Stone Crab and Key Lime Pie! 4) Same for where to dine…choose a local mom and pop establishment instead of the golden arches. Helps the local economy at the same time. 5) Stay at hotels that are adopting sustainable initiatives…and use those towels and linens more than one day please! 6) When it comes to souvenirs, buy something that was locally made. I’d rather have a painting from a local artist than a Grand Canyon snow globe made in China any day. Happy trails, and don’t forget to write! (hehehe)

  Hi Cleo!
Peachy here…helping Caymus with his Earth Day campaign. While Mr. Big Beak was chowin’ down on mom’s Easter dinner Sunday, I hopped on the ‘puter to do a little research. --Did you know that recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to watch TV for 3 hours? --Did you know that more than 20,000,000 Hershey's Kisses are wrapped each day, using 133 square miles of tinfoil? All that foil is recyclable, but not many people realize it. --Did you know if every newspaper was recycled, we could save about 250,000,000 trees each year? Unfortunately only 27% of all American newspapers are recycled. --Did you know that each year, billions of used batteries are thrown away in the United States? This constitutes 88% of the mercury and 54% of the cadmium deposited into our landfills. --Did you know that approximately 5 million tons of oil produced in the world each year ends up in the ocean? And those humans complain about how messy us birdies are??? Ha! Even Caymus isn’t that dirty and he’s a WRECK! hehehe Singing a little Canary song as I press the vote button on your page!

  Hi Cleo!
Caymus here. Today I’d also like to mention that it’s “Prevention of Cruelty to Animals” month. My little friend Pippin from Dearborn Heights, MI, along with his flockmates Dusty Beaker, Skipper, Sammie, Max and Sapphire, reminded me of that fact. Thanks, Pip! I got my green idea of the day by going to Disney.go.com/Earth, where you can preview the trailer for the new movie coming out on Earth Day. And, to celebrate the premier, the film’s makers will plant a tree in honor of every moviegoer who sees the film in the opening week. The trees will be planted in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, which is considered the most endangered rainforest in the world. Some of our wild cousins live there…so now mom’s trying to figure out how she can smuggle me in the movie theater! hehehe Stay green my friend-hugs and votes all around!

  Hi Cleo!
Caymus here. Well it’s that time of year again when I really show my true colors and invite everybirdy our there to “go green” with me! Even my fister Peachy has gotten into the spirit…I mean, have YOU ever seen a green Canary? Rumor has it that I painted Sam the Grey green last year, so you better be careful or this year I may come after YOU! hehehe And of course, stay tuned for my “green ideas of the day” as well as some really neat quotes, and of course a silly joke or two. Earth Day is very important to our flock not just on April 22nd, but every single day of the year because as an old Cree Indian Proverb says, “only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught, will we realize we cannot eat money.”

Hey buddy! how you been, my friend? I don't know if you heard or not, but I've been organizing a cockatoo 'fantasy baseball' team for here on the BC. My roster was full almost before I even started because a lot of the birds were on the team last year, but we need a couple back ups. Are you interested? I'll let you know what to do, if you are. Let me know, okay? Thanks, bud. V4u. Speedy.

  `Ü´ Greetings, Mr Cleo!
It seems as though forEVER and A DAY has passed since My Mr Rio ® [AKA Rio Feather Duster] handed me `Ü´ [AKA Ruby Francesca Begonia] the note that said, “Make it count. Meet me at the clock.” Well GLORY BE! Was this GRITS Girl surely surprised later that evening to see so many BirdChannel Featheriends gathered on Titanic’s main staircase with My Mr Rio standing at the very top, next to the clock, of course! All in attendance for the “Feel the Love on the BirdChannel” Valentines’ Dance, hosted by our very own Mr Djimo Beaumont Teasdale and HIS very own Miss CoCoPuff. A good time was most definitely had by all!!! ~~ Then the very next thing I know, on Monday morning, Mr Rio is telling everybirdy, “® Rio’s ♥ beats 4 Ruby `Ü´ Proud of MY Girl!” Well, My Dearest Mr Rio, I am very proud of YOU as well! As I’ve told you… “I have long counted myself as holding the honor or Bird of YOUR Week. That you would step aside from the coveted honor of BirdChannel Bird of the Week in order to make the way for my receiving it exceeds this BirdGirl’s ability to comprehend!” For that reason, My Darling Mr Rio, I am not wearing a crown this week, but the “Heart of the BirdChannel” necklace, an icon of the Titanic story, to acknowledge and honor you throughout this week as well. ~~ And OF COURSE, I cannot be spending this week in a castle somewhere. We Are Aboard TITANIC! And the Adventure continues! ~~ Please be reminded, Mr Cleo, that Momma has created a Topic Blog in the BirdChannel Forums… “For all our Dearest Featheriends, if you are just joining our Titanic Adventure and would like to see how it all came about and all that has transpired since our embarking on it, or if you would like to see The Story in its entirety to the present, you may visit the BirdChannel’s ‘Bird Community’. [Link on the left of any BirdChannel page.] Once there, click on ‘Log In to the Forums’. [Next to the picture of those two lovely canaries, in the box tabbed ‘Bird Message Board’, located in the middle of the page as it comes up.] In the second box with bright green and yellow stripes at the top on that page, look for the fifth topic, ‘Pictures of Your Birds” and click on that. Look for ‘Ruby and Rio’s Titanic Adventure’. And once you click on that title…VOILA! You will find every little detail of our adventure and how it came about. ~~ We shall be weighing anchor on the morrow. Leaving you with a Vote of Anticipation. Toutes alors, mon amie...`Ü´ ♥’s ® [Until then, My Featheriend]

  `Ü´ Mr Cleo, We’re Going Home! <Ö)
`Ü´ And now I suppose that Jake is going to be running around telling everybirdy that he is a ‘World Traveler’, a ‘Man of the Road’, an ‘International Jet Setter’! And I .,. I am still (Ö> CR Jake’s little fister! He will say he made a bold escape. I can tell you who opened the door. He will claim he led us to the safety of the perfect hiding place, where no one would find us; where we could rest and gather ourselves. I will tell you how difficult it is keeping up with a Blue-And-Gold Macaw in a dead run. That nobirdy found us in our perfect hiding place because nobirdy is silly enough to go to the South Pole ON PURPOSE!! But I will give him the point that our first stop allowed, and even caused, us to gather ourselves … IN ORDER TO STAY WARM! He will say he orchestrated the perfect exit and transport to a true safe house. I will tell you that had it not been for you, Mr Cleo, and all of our BirdChannel featheriends, we might never have been able to wiggle our toes again! (Let alone fly—or for that matter hear anybirdy laugh at one of Jake’s jokes!!) ~~ But there is at least one point on which we have come to total agreement. And that is that THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME! And possibly that there’s nobirdy and nothing more important than flockily! Even though I still hold that Jake’s sense of humor (for want of a better term) is somewhat lacking, leaning more to the (and please forgive this un-genteel term) DORKY, I do believe that his jokes are always well intentioned and never uttered with any degree of malice. He is, indeed, Jokie Jakie. (Perhaps it is kinder to not tell him that the joke is often ON HIM.) ~~~~ (Ö> CR Jake here. I’ve gotta give it to the Little Girl. Sometimes that Goody Ruby Shoes act has its advantages. I got a real good idea now that when she’s just sittin’ there, bein’ all quiet and ‘demure’, she’s got her eagle eyes focused and her ears are tuned into everything that’s goin’ on. And she’s doggone good at puttin’ it to use! Truth be told, whenever we got into trouble on this trip, she already knew how to get us out. And she’s brave too! (She can afford to be as much bigger ’n me as she is.) And she’s sweet. That GRITS thing she’s got goin’ on is no front. She’s a Girl Raised In The South through and through. ~~ And now, ONE MORE TIME, it’s her wing power getting’ us home! I don’t fly, so Rubes carried the weight o’ the both of us this entire trip. Now, don’t nobirdy tell her I said this—‘cause I’ll deny it!—but she’s an A-OK Fid by me. Don’t mean I’m gonna be any nicer to her. But now I know that it’s the ridiculousness o’ the joke that makes it funny, not the ridicule. ~~~~ `Ü´ So, here we are on final approach to the K Kritter Korral, and I think I see Momma on the front porch! Oh…Jake, there’s NO place like home!!! ~~ Momma—We’re ba-aa-ack! `Ü´ & <Ö)

  `Ü´ Bless You! Our Loyal Featheriend <Ö)
Oh my gracious goodness! We are so truly blessed to have a featheriend like you Mr Cleo to whom to turn in our time of need!! We are unspeakably thankful!!! Your help in deciphering the instructions of the local parrotsonnel has proven invaluable in enabling us to take advantage of what would seem to be the only available path AWAY from this frozen wilderness, TOWARD the warmth and love of our flockily and home. ~~ As you may have reasoned for yourself, there are occasional flights in and out of Antarctica for the purpose of delivering and retrieving *scientists* [tsieicest] and/or *supplies* [plussie…and YES, Frother Jake did not accurately spell the Antarctican word for supplies; but thankfully, your keen sense of logic allowed for its appropriate translation anyway]. As a matter of fact, the *airstrip* [iipatrsr] is very nearby, where we have learned there is a *departure*[utarpeder] of a *cargo plane* [enlpa oargc] scheduled for Friday* [rydifa]. The *penguins* [guinespn] know that it will arrive at *midnight* [timdinhg] tonight from *New Zealand* [wenzaldena]. However, nobirdy can tell us when it will leave or what its destination will be, so we must immediately *stowaway* [yawawots] upon its arrival. ~~ Obviously, we will be in a communications blackout once this message is sent and we have tripped your vote counter. We will post any and all new information on my page as soon as it becomes available and we again have access to the BirdChannel. We will consider it a parrotsonal favor if you will be so kind as to check there periodically for the next 24 hours, until we can once again establish contact. Until then… `Ü´ & <Ö) PS: Does ANYbirdy know where airplanes go FROM Antarctica?!

  `Ü´ Hello from the F-R-I-G-I-D SOUTH! <Ö)
Everybirdy urged and invited us to “Head South…Escape SOUTH!”. But, my Dearest featheriends, you must remember that our escape route is being mapped by my impetuous frother Jake! The very same (Ö> CR Jake who has given us all pause with his ‘squawk first, think it through later’ style of humor and, it would seem to be apparent from our current location, his ‘hear the first part, go back and finish listening later’ style of taking information in. It might have been wiser to say, “It is lovely and warm here where we are in FLORIDA or SOUTH CAROLINA or GEORGIA. We will hide you and keep you and Ruby safe until this whole situation can be resolved.” But no…NO-o-o. You all said ‘South’. And ‘South’ was all Jake heard! I think he was so scared that he set his Avian GPS for ‘South’ and just WENT SOUTH…until there was no more south left!!! So here we are — I have no idea where — cold and hungry and LOST, with no idea what to do next! ~~ My Dearest Mr Cleo, we are in dire need of your immediate help. Please…PLeASe…PLEASE…I BEG OF YOU…Can you suggest somewhere, a bit more specifically, that two parrot fiblings might be able to hide themselves whilst we endeavor to sort ourselves out?! Obviously, the only direction we can go from where we find ourselves at this moment is…UP!!! Since we are already at the bottom of the world, I am begging you, help us find some direction! ~~ We have been able to procure shelter and some provisions which will allow us to remain here (wherever it is that we are) for a day or two. By grace, we have also made the acquaintance of a most hospitable gentleman who was erecting the directional sign you see in the picture on my page today. He quite generously has offered us the use of his laptop computer while we remain in the area, thus allowing us a method of communication with you who have shown such concern and caring for us. Would you be so kind as to share with us any SPECIFIC suggestion you may have for our next move? (Please include City, Country, Continent…and Hemisphere might be helpful as well!) We can see no other way out of our current dilemma without your help. ~~ We will be monitoring my BirdChannel page 24/7, hoping to discover our first step homeward. We look forward to hearing from each and every one of our Featheriends VERY soon. Until then…`Ü´ & <Ö) PS: We have heard through the Avian Grapevine that our Momma was taken rather ill yesterday…to the point of fainting (more that ONCE)! I just KNOW that it is because she is without us. Please, HURRY!!! PSS: As we currently have access to the internet, this message will automatically register one vote per parrot receiving it.

  `Ü´ Greetings, Mr Cleo!
“Now is the time for all good Featheriends to come to the aid of Jokester Jake.” ~~ As you know, Momma has sentenced my frother, CR Jake<Ö) [Self-proclaimed ‘Funny Bird’], to an indeterminate length of time in Solitary Confinement as punishment for his completely insensitive remarks about his little fister—ME!—at a party. However, in his pleading for support to secure his release from his confinement, you (his loyal featheriends) have rushed to assure me of the innocence of his comments, the love and affections with which he truly holds me, and the importance of forgiveness in flockilys, particularly between fiblings. Momma has also tried to use the situation as an opportunity to practice forgiveness and unconditional love. And I am willing to submit to her assignations…TO A POINT. ~~ Here’s the deal fids: I will be overjoyed to restore my frother’s freedom on the condition that I can see, through the willingness of his Featheriends to participate in his redemption by meeting a challenge of my design (with Momma’s approval, of course) that his offense truly was not intended to inflict parrotsonal damage and that, no matter how poorly executed, his conversation was meant only as banter, holding no portion of malice. ~~ All this is to say that if you all, as his dearest Featheriends, are willing to stand for his innocence by suffering the slings and arrows of a thousand questions (not really, but I’m feeling poetic at the moment), then I shall be convinced that I have misunderstood completely and will likewise forgive him completely…and RELEASE HIM IMMEDIATELY. ~~ Here’s all you have to do: Each day, I will pose a question about “a day in the life of Ruby and Jake.” The answer is already somewhere here in the bird pages. Momma will determine a point value for correctly answering each question, each day. All birdies who answer any question will be credited the point value. All points, from all birdies, every day, will go toward Jake’s ‘bail’. When enough points are accumulated, Jake’s bail will be paid, and he well be set free to accost us all with Jake’s Jests once more. ~~ Your successfully answering these questions will prove to me that you, his dearest Featheriends, know This Bird at least as well as I. And if you know that he meant no harm, then I should have seen this as well. ~~ READY? SET?! Then show up on my page first thing tomorrow morning. Look for the question and any clues in the ‘My motto:’ section. Loads of Luck to You in your search. And stop back any time to tell me the answers. I leave you with a vote of appreciation. Momma and I will keep you posted as the ‘Tot. Board’ rises! Until then…`Ü´

  (Ö> Hiya Cleo :(
[That’s the ‘Shortcut Key’ for a frown, don’tcha know? Mom didn’t! She had to look it up!!] ~~ I’m a not-so-very jovial fid today. (Hence the frown.) Got m’self in BIG TROUBLE at a party Saturday night. Somebirdy was squawkin’ about bein’ happy to get away from some ‘furry four-leggers’ (felines, don’tcha know). Didn’t wanna hafta spend time with ‘em at a social event too. But I figured it might be more like home for ‘em if’n I offered the use of one or two of our NINE at the party. But, just in case that idea wasn’t received very well, I offered an alternative too—nice guy ain’t I?! ~~ I reasoned that, since fids are really the ideal comp’ny for fids, maybe my Fister (`Ü´ Ruby Francesca Begonia) would make a better companion. THAT’S WHERE I GOT M’SELF IN DEEP DOO-DOO!!! ~~ Well…SOMEHOW my remarks got back to my very own, sweet little pain-in-the- … … my Fister, and she got all hurt ‘n’ embarrassed and ev’rything. And tho’ she never said anything to ‘Her Momma’, Mom decided I had pushed it just a little too far this time, and I’d hafta make it up to Rubes. ~~ So now I’ve gotta see if’n I can redeem myself in both Ruby’s AND Mom’s eyes. So here’s what I’m askin’ all my featheriends to do: Whether you were at the party or not, you know me well enough to know what a jokester I am. Could ya do a pal a favor and stop by Ruby’s page (and I even broke down and put her Avatar in my ‘CR Jake’s Jungle o’ Jokers’ Aviary for easy access!) and give me a good recommend? It’d sure help me out. (This solitary confinement cage Mom’s got me in ‘til I can make it up to the Rubester ain’t exactly COMFORTABLE…if ya know what I mean!) Ya don’t hafta worry about sendin’ me a note. I’ll know ya love me by seein’ your glowin’ reports on Ruby’s page. Just convince The Rubicube to love me too! ~~ By the way, Mom’s also promised “Boo Boo” (…what a name! YUCK!!) that she’ll be doin’ somethin’ special with her to help smooth her ruffled feathers too. Keep an eye out for that. I’m sure it’ll work in my favor as well. AaaaaAA!! Oh yeah, and if’n your ‘Vote Button’ is missin’, I hid it on Ruby’s page. You can pick it up there when ya go to ‘talk me up’ to her! Scream at ya again soon! CR Jake <Ö)

Happy New Year! I know that Peachy and I have not been around much lately but that doesn’t mean we haven’t frequently thought about all our dear friends here on the BC. We just wanted to fly by today to say that we have not forgotten about you, miss you dearly, and promise to keep in touch in 2009. You’re friendship has meant a lot to us (and mommy, too) and we all wish you joy, peace and prosperity in the new year. Ok, have to leave you with a “joke of the day….” Question: Why can’t a chicken coop have more than 2 doors?………………………………………….Answer: Because if it had 4 doors it would be a chicken sedan! hehehehe! See ya next year!

  Hello from Caymus...
Hello Cleo! I know…long time, no squawk. It’s been an interesting few weeks around here. My skin-sis just celebrated her 12th birthday and (I don’t know what my parrots were thinking) she had a sleepover with FIVE other girls. And mommy and daddy thought I was loud? Ha! A good time was had by all and only one girl went home with a tummy ache (pizza at 11 p.m. followed by chips, soda and a pickle…ugh!) and apparently dad has to repair my sis’ bed. Hey, I understand…sometimes I chew off the loops that hold my happy hut to the bar clips and mommy has to sew them back on. (grin) Dad’s two sisters also came to visit and I got to sleep in mom and dad’s room just incase I felt like imitating an alarm clock in the early morning. But even daddy said I was on my best behavior and when everyone left on Monday, mom fixed me a special plate with brown rice, chicken, green beans and grapes! Sunday mom is going to the bird show and I can’t wait to see what she brings back (feathers crossed for a Pak-o-bird). So what’s new with you? Hope all is well and I’m leaving ya a HUMONGUS hug and a vote!

  Hey Cleo!!
How are you, my friend?? I hope you had a nice long weekend! Thanks for swinging by the other day, and sorry I didn't respond before now. I had a very busy week, and an even busier weekend! Whew I'm tired! Now it's Asha's turn to be so busy. :) The weather is beautiful today, though, so I'll probably be outside for the afternoon, and can rest. The surprise was that I got to go camping! Woo hoo! I love camping. I had a great time! We rented a camp near the water, and I got to play in the trees. In my harness, of course. Mommy wouldn't take the chance that I'd fly into the water. I'm not a very good swimmer. :) Talk to you later, bud. Have a good one! V4u. Speedy

  Happy July from Caymus!
Hello Cleo! Please excuse the “form” email but it is the only way I can catch everybirdy up on what’s been shakin’ without sounding like a broken record. Anyway, we’ve all been very busy with yet more projects around the house. Mom has permanently put my cage out on the back patio and (drum roll please) bought me a nice new (bigger..yippie!) cage for the living room. She got kind of tired of rolling me in and out of the house and my water dish splashing all over the place. I started a few conversations with the neighborhood Mockingbirds, but the Blue Jays and Cardinals are still scared of me. The Pelicans fly too high for me to talk to, and I HATE, HATE, HATE the stupid vultures that sometimes land of the neighbor’s roof. I’ll scream my head off if I see one of these buggers! I’m getting along well with my skin-sis while she’s on summer break. Some days she goes to camp but on days she is home I make sure she doesn’t sleep too late and get her up around 9-9:30am, which is pretty nice of me considering I’m a Conure and I love a good morning yell! On the other wing, she does give me a treat for letting her sleep in a bit and I’ve helped her clean out her room, which is her project for the summer. And if you can believe, she came up with that project all on her own without any instruction from our parronts! Let’s see…what else? Oh yes, the back patio…well you know the one I’m on is screened in. Well mom and dad decided they want to lay a brick patio on the outside of the screened room, too. So this weekend mom started tearing up the grass and she’s got about half of it done. Next she has to level and tramp down the existing dirt, then spread paver sand on top of that, and then finally she will have to put down each paver, one at a time, leveling it out and fitting in the next one. Daddy wanted to hire someone to do it, but mom’s got her frozen lemonade and her big umbrella all ready to go and told daddy she wants to design her own patio and if it takes all summer, that’s ok. Daddy just has to supply the materials and mom will do all the work. And I’ll supervise! hehehe Dad’s bettin’ she cries “uncle,” but if I know mom, she’ll complete the project to perfection. I’ll let you know how that turns out. Oh, and last thing…I heard a firecracker go off a few nights ago. Scared the bejesus out of me and I took cover in my happy-hut. Last night, however, it was no big deal. Sometimes the humans in my flock are louder than an entire fireworks display. (I’m sure my parronts would say the same about me.) So mom’s happy that I’m taking it all in stride and she won’t have to worry about me having a nervous break-down on the 4th of July. On that note, I’d like to leave you with my joke of the day…Q: “What would you get if you crossed the American national bird with Snoopy? A: A bald beagle! Woo-hoo-hoo-hoo!!!!! Leaving big hugs and a vote…squawk at ya later!

  Hi Cleo its Jacky and Cory
Just flew in to hit the vote button and see how you are doing! We birds are very upset with our Mommy, she won't let us outside because of all the fires we are having. She says its to smoky and it will hurt our lungs. I guess she is right, we can't even see are pretty lake :( One fire is 16 miles west from small town chester and we are 10 miles east of chester so Mommy is getting our travel cages ready just in case. Well here's a big birdie hug and kisses until next time:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>

  Hey good buddy!
How are you? Hey, guess what? I think something big might be coming up, cause mommy's getting my travel cage ready. I hope it's not company coming and I have to sleep upstairs in my travel cage again! I hope we're going someplace fun and exciting, and can have lots of adventures! I'll let you know when I find out for sure. :) V4u. Speedy

  Hey Cleo
How have you been, my friend? Did you have a good weekend? Did you do anything fun? My mom and dad went on a long ride on the motor-cycle. That's what they call it, but I think it's a rocket, because they put on things that look like space suits, even the hats that look like they can go into outer space. I don't really like those big hats, but mommy lifted up the face part and I could see it was her. But they were gone all day, and now mommy is sore. He he. I told her she should have stayed here with me! :) Talk to you later, buddy. V4u. Speedy

  Hi Cleo its Jacky and Cory
Just did a fly by to hit the vote button and hope you and your family had a nice father's day weekend! It was okay here, Mommy and Daddy to us 2 out for a little walk, me Cory still I'm a little scare of going for a big walk. Cory has to go to the doctors, his blind eye is sticking out more than normal and he cries when Mommy rubs it (he use to like it) plus its getting this ugly stuff on it. So keep your little feet cross that brother Cory will be okay. Here's a big birdie hug and kisses!

  Cleo!
I'm spreading the word. The fields across the street are being mowed and they are planting something, and there are big tractors. Can you say SCARY?? Mommy keeps saying it's not scary, but I truly believe they are giant monsters bent on killing all the parrots in the neighborhood. Mommy keeps putting down the shades so I'll stop obsessing. I lean way forward to look out the windows, and I get all skinny and my eyes get big. So she shuts the blinds so I can have some peace... but I know they are still out there... waiting... mommy got some pictures of them. Digital proof of their existence. Come check them out and see what you think. Don't be fooled. They don't say 'Parrot Killing Machinery' on the sides, but nonetheless, that's their true mission. If you don't hear from me anymore, you'll know what to tell the cops! V4u. Speedy

  Hi Cleo
I got not one, but two new toys and a real cake. CoCo, big goof ball jumped on the cake and got icing all over her feet. hehe
Wish you'll were here with me to enjoy a bite of cake. Mom already put up my birthday pictures on the bottom of my page. I feel really special today. Thanks so much Romeo

  Guess what? Today's my birthdy. I'm 4 today. Guess it's down hill from here. Maybe Mom will make me a birdie cake. I heard her telling her friend she's going to PetSmart today, do you think it's to get my gift? I'm so excited. Luv U, sending a vote Romeo

  Hi from Speedy!
How are you, my friend? It's been a while since I heard from you, and I wanted to swing by to see how you were. Also, I have some news. I asked Snuggles to be my girlfriend, and she said yes! I'm so happy I wanted to tell all my friends. Come visit when you can. :) Later. V4u. Speedy
