Kiddo flew into Dad's warehouse, but the owner of the company said he had to go OR ELSE! Finally after a week they managed to lure Kiddo down using a baloney sandwich as bait. After trying unsuccessfully to find his owners, he tried living for a few weeks with Dad's co-worker and her African Grey. That didn't work out (the grey was jealous and so was Kiddo), so he came to live with us. He was supposed to be Dad's bird, but he bonded with Mom from day one, and now we are best friends. I love him dearly. Although I had never thought of having a bird as a companion, now I can't imagine life without him. The first thing I do each day is join him for breakfast and beaky kisses. We share our lives and love. What joy he has brought to my life.

Hi! My name is Kiddo loves SweetPepper!

I am a Senegal Parrot from Simi Valley, CA.

Dad: Superbrat, Fuzzy Butt, Mr. Snooty Beak & Falcon.
Mom: Cupcake, T-Rex & Sugar Butt
At bedtime: Bonzo


14 years old   M

Senegal Parrot

Raw cashews and almonds. Sweet potatoes, grapes and bananas. Dried papayas are definitely parrot candy.

The heating grate over the door (when the heater isn't on). My playstands. Mom's kneecap and shoulder.

Dad: I am very jealous of the time Mom spends with him. She should be with me 24 hours a day.

Mom loves to cuddle me when it is time to go to sleep at night. I love to snuggle up under her chin and coo at her. We have a great time together.

Doing the "Godzilla stomp" when Dad sticks his head in to say hello. I am a very tough hombre. I know I could take him out any time I want. I am just biding my time.....Of course, I do dance with him, too. I am the best dancer in the house!.

Watch your fingers....my beak is sharp..

  Hey Kiddo,
Today at the beach it sure was a fun day. Kaji and Sugar decide to go and try tandem surfing. Sugar gets on Kaji shoulders and she’s balancing herself then Pookie and Chipper pull in front of them and they all fall into the waves. Aaarg!! Wipe out!! Pookie and Chipper try again and wing paddle out into the ocean where the waves are pumping. Kaji and Sugar try again but stay far away from Pookie and Chipper who are tandem surfing too. BooBoo, Polu and Silver watch everyone tandem surfing and are waving at everyone surfing on the water. The birdie on top like Sugar starts waving at the birdies on the beach and she throws off Kaji’s balance and then poof!! Wipe out!!! Pookie and Chipper are doing good for the tandem surfing, as Pookie’s got good balance and Chipper is an ace at gymnastics.

Meanwhile Cori, Pearl, Gus and Kiddo and Polu pretend to be tandem surfing but are on the sand practicing. Polu gets on Pearl’s shoulders and is trying to get on to Cori’s shoulders to balance himself while Gus and Kiddo do the same but end up falling in the sand. They all fall like dominos! BooBoo, Laka and Silver start laughing at everyone pretending to be tandem surfing. The gang pretending to be tandem surfing is having a hard time with their balancing act. They use their wings to try and stable themselves but it doesn’t work, the waves breaking on the shore throws them off and they all land on the sand. Wipe out!!! Yells BooBoo, Silver and Laka.

Laka tells BooBoo see, I knew the BC wouldn’t go down. Besides we’ll all go down with the BC ship! Heee heee heee heee

Here, Laka passes Piddy a cool strawberry margarita mix drink with an umbrella in it. Cool, they all lean back on their chairs and watch their friends surf and wipe out at the same time. Entertainment today says Silver as he takes a sip of Laka’s strawberry margarita drink. Ahhh yes this is the life………. BooBoo has some crickets in her drink, Laka’s bug special as she calls it. This is how we do things here, says Laka. We cater to our friends and the things they like.

Stay tuned for tomorrows beach adventures of As The BC Turns. . . . . . . .

Love, Hugs and a vote.

  Hi Kiddo
tonight i wanted mom to scratch my head so i screamed at her to let her know. then i layed my head in her lap as she scratched and massaged my head. it felt so good i started humming. mom repeated what i was humming and i repeated it back. then i added the words happy birthday to my tune. this really made mom laugh since i always sing happy birthday to all music i hear or hum.

today Boo Boo still sat on the sponge on the bottom of her cage all day. since mom has all her food and water dishes right beside she really doesn't have to move far to get to them. mom is starting to think that Boo Boo will not get better.
tonight Bo boo was very active in the bedroom and was non stop hoping all over the bedroom. mom wasn't sure if she was hunting a cricket or just exercising muscles she hasn't used for 3 weeks. she even did a few jumps and twirls which she hasn't done for a month. then when it was time for bed she ran under the bed and mom had to crawl under to catch her. mom won't feel better until Boo Boo starts using her perches in the daytime.

love Cori and Boo Boo

  Hi KIddo,
a really nice day today, not to hot for a change, around 84. The parronts decided to work on the concrete today. They started around 8 and didn't finish until noon...They added about 2" across and at least that going down. The edge of the concrete was horrible before so they are hoping it looks a lot better with a proper edge on it. It was hard work and mom's back is letting her know that right now. Mom will take a nice hot bath and that should help her muscles feel a little better...She helped dad mix the mud using a drill and then she did all of the fine edge work. Sad was responsible for putting the mud in the hole...
Mom already has the before picture so she will take some afters as well.
Mom called the boys and they called her back yesterday and said that were planning on coming out to finish up and mom told him that the concrete had cracked in the back and would need a lot of work to get it right so don't know if they will come back if it means that they have to buy more material.

Tomorrow is grocery day so they are planning on getting an early start again..they have been getting up at 6am.

That is about all the news there is from around here...

So, what is new over your way? How is your dad doing these days, sure hope he is getting better more and more each day.

  Hi Kiddo
mom says was very bad tonight. i kept getting on the cable box and walking around and mom kept yelling at me to get off. i wouldn't listen and the next thing i knew i got one of my nils caught in the cable box vent. mom immediately tried to unhook my nail before i panicked and hurt my leg. i was very upset and i bite mom on the finger and made it bleed. then i somehow twisted my body around and so my foot was facing backward so mom had to turn my body around and then she was able to unhook my nail. mom told me to listen to her next time she tells me something. i forgot what she was talking about.

Boo Boo is still staying on the bottom of her cage but is now calling to the blue jays outside and showing a lithe more interest in things like playing with her shiny toys when she is in the bedroom for playtime in the evening. she is still making it to the top perch of her cage for bedtime but it takes her about 15 minutes to get there.

  Hi Kiddo,
mom watched the Seahawks practice live on seahawks.com this morning and has a plan to watch them all. I did notice that they do have a replay of it on their website, don't think that they did that last season.
Very happy to see Michael Bennett there. Pete said in his press conference that they are going to try and keep Bennett a Seahawk until he retires so hope they can get that done sooner rather than later. He has done everything right and has been a pro on the field...Part of the problem is the cap space and the presedent that might be set since he still has 2 years left on his contract...keeping my talons crossed!
Michael said in his press conference that he wants to be a Seahawk for the rest of his life...

My mom is really excited about the football season too...

Another really hot day, again. Mom put a picture up in my gallery showing the temperature at 5 pm yesterday, today is heading the same way...it was much cooler today only 103...lol
The best way to beat the heat now for mom is to stay inside...hehe

  Hey Kiddo,
Good evening everyone!

My mom and us fids want to thank everyone for all their love and support and many prayers for mom to get a new job.

It’s not really official till she turns in her resignation papers which will be on August 2nd and her last day in HELL will be on August 15th.

She will meet and bring all the necessary paperwork to Personnel on August 2nd at 9:00 am.

So I guess everything will be signed sealed and delivered that day. Ooooh Happy Day!!!

Mom is still in shock that it will be soon time to leave this negative place of work. Good riddance I say!!

So tonight and tomorrow let’s parteee!!! Drinks of all kinds for everyone!!!

Laka totes her little pink wagon along and Little Polu. He follows with his little blue wagon that can only hold a few tiny bottles of Jack Daniels.

Come on Jenny, Let’s DO THIS, Like HOME DEPOT!!!!

Laka has all sorts of wine coolers and strong spirits to celebrate mom’s leaving the hell hole.

Yay!!! Everyone let’s drink up and be Merry ALL TOGETHER!!! Come on Cori and BooBoo and Piddy and Paddy, let’s party!!!

Laka toasts with Cookie in the strawberry wine coolers and Polu is drinking shots with Jenny. Boy are they gonna be bombed tonight!

Everyone has a good ole time drinking and singing and they all join in to make a BON FIRE out of the old BC pages.

Jenny throws in the old BC pages and slurs her words, take this you mongrel!!! And then staggers back to Polu for a refill.

Love & Hugs,

Laka, Polu and the Hawaiian gang

  Hi Kiddo,
ere we are again...

Nothing much new here...still way to hot...dad likes to keep mom informed as to how hot it is on a regular basis. The hottest it got was 109 in our backyard.
Mom went out with Harley for a few minutes after lunch so she could go potty and while she was out, she decided to pick up Harley's droppings...She was only out about 15 minutes at the most but after she came in she started to feel a little nauseous and hot so she decided to go and lay down in the bedroom where it was cooler. She felt much better after about 30 minutes. Dad reminder her that she can't take the heat any more.

So excited that Training camp starts tomorrow and mom is planning to watch it on the Seahawks live video feed.
Also very happy that John and Pete got extended but really hope that they can do something for Bennett...
I think that we are going to have a great season, the Hawks are looking great!

How is your dad doing?

  Hi Kiddo
today mom found some pin feathers on my head so it means i am slowly starting to molt. mom is praying the new feathers all start coming in the right color instead of the burgundy color my wings now have. 3 neighbors have tree cutting companies here at the same time all cutting down big old oaks that have the oak leaf wilt disease. this is so sad to see these great oaks all cut down. one female cardinal was so stressed out by it that she flew panic stricken into one of our shrubs and sat there all day.

update on Boo Boo
Boo Boo tried to hide one of her waxworks in moms tennis shoe tonight and that made mom feel good. also when it was time for bed Boo Boo didn't go quietly but made mom chase her. mom placed Boo Boo on her top perch in her cage for bed because she kept trilling and making noise. she is now semi asleep. last night she slept on her perch for about 6 hours and she also was using her perch on the bottom of the cage today. its about 1 inch above the sponge.

today mom went to the store and had no idea why she was there or what she had come for so mom knows she is stressed out and is trying to be calm about everything even though its hard with dad around.

love Cori

  Hi Kiddo
we are glad to hear dad is in the hospital. tel him the next time he feels his kidneys failing to get to the dr. pronto and he might not have to be hospitalized at all. yes tell him no body likes dialysis but its still better than the alternative.

we used to feel that when things were getting a bit much at home we could take a few days off of Facebook and catch up when we had time but sadly thats not the case anymore. don't like to talk about too much personal stuff on fB or YouPet. here is what is going on.

just wanted to give an update. Boo Boo is not getting any better. she isn't any worse but no signs of improvement. she is eating well but not drinking much. she loves the coconut meat and the aloe vera plant mom is giving her. she is not active at all but very interesed in what is going on around her and calls you over to see her. she attempts to perch but ends up on the sponge on the floor of her cage. we put a perch about 1 inch above the sponge and she stands on it for a little bit. the sponge is getting dirty very quickly now so mom has to keep changing it so Boo Boo isn't standing in shit. mom out Boo Boo in her outside cage today so she could change the sponge and dad yelled at her for putting Boo Boo outside in the 94 degree weather

dad has severe gout in the right foot and it swelled up so bad he can't wear shoes. the dr said he never saw gout so bad. it is very painful. he can't use his left leg because of his bad knee which is why he uses a cane.

my 100 year old step father is declining in health and soiling himself and hi son(moms step brother) want to throw all g-mss things away since she hasn't lived in the apartment at the senior care facility for 9 months now but is residing in the health care unit because of all her health problems like parkinsons, neuoropothy, macular degeneration, no hearing, incontinent, severe pain in her right arm from lymph nodes bing removed from last great cancer surgery and she can't walk anymore. her birthday is friday and she will be 95 and whn mom goes to visit she will have to fight with step brother over g-mss possessions.

not trying to throw all of this on you but mom can't think she is so stressed out and is most concerned about Boo Boo
also visit the kissing booth on FB. the simpleton bird plays ere putting on plays every day there. it helps mom get her mind off of things writing them. there is one at the kissing booth here also.

love Cori

  Hello Kiddo~
I'm still here too! Don't know if today is it or not. They don't seem to do things on any schedule around here. I'll take everyday they give us!
Quiet day around here. Jennifer took care of McKenzie this morning so that mom could go to the market. It's too warm to leave her in the car so she stayed home. Mom really needed to get over there today since George and Gracie were out of food and the market across the street doesn't sell it anymore! They got their food and are very happy!!
Mom and the kids loved Star Trek. Can't wait for it to get out on DVD so I can see it too!
Sure hope your dad is feeling better and gets to come home soon!
Enjoy the evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

  Hi Kiddo,
sorry to hear that your dad is back in the hospital, do you know how long he has to stay there? Sure hope he feels better soon.
Powdered eggs sounds gross so good that your mom got him something he can actually eat.
You will need to be the super extra strong Velcro or your mom will be able to detach you and visit your dad.

I am almost at the point that I am expecting BC to be here, so I guess that I will be surprised when I do see it...lol

Pretty quite around here lately...

You are probably doing better at YouPet than I am, I am not to good at finding my own page...hehe

It was grocery day here so now cupboards and fridge is full and we will eat for at least one more week...lol

We're still here ! Mom was sure that when she got up this morning . . . can't even say it - What a nice surprise :)

It is a good morning and a happy humpday ! The best part of the day yesterday (and again today) is that although temperatures are 90/92 the humidity levels are down. Mom even got to try out her new sneakers last night when she and daddy took their walk by the river. There was even a nice little breeze ! Hopefully the weather will be like this next week when we're all on vacation :)

So the rest of this week will involve some deep cleaning - mom hates to come home to a yucky house so she'll do it all first. And laundry of course . . . and my pedicure (UGH !)

Prayers for dad ! love Cookie

  Hi Kiddo,
Thank you for the prayers for mom. She's got a good feeling that she's gonna a start date soon. That's the first step.

Today mom came home half day as she couldn't sleep well last night. She's still praying for something to happen soon as her co-workers are getting worse. Mom is trying to take it with a grain of salt whatever that means. Hoomans!

Every night after our shower mom blow dries her hair then the blow dries me too, but I'd rather just whistle at the bird in the mirror. That's the fun part after our shower. :)

Mom tried to videotape me whistling at myself but I know better. I didn't say a peep till she took the phone away. I'm a smart birdie! :). Heeheeheehee

Hope your day was just as fun with lots of scritches and cuddles.

Here's a vote for you.

So your dad ended up in the hospital again? I'm so sorry. I hope he doesn't have to stay there for too long. Powdered eggs sound really bad. Glad they have a cafeteria there with good food.
Mom had some running around to do and now she is going to get my notes done and then take McKenzie on a long walk. They are going to see Star Trek tonight so McKenzie has to go into her crate. I'm going into my night cage but mom said we can all come back to the living room when she gets home!!
Have a good night and we are saying a prayer for your dad!

  Heya, Kiddo!
Mom has the online subscription to the paper along with her paper delivery. But she doesn't have a tablet, just the phone and she doesn't care to read the paper on the phone. And can't do the crossword puzzle or cryptoquip either. We know alot of folks go online to read things, and we do too. But what do you take in the bathroom? Hehe!

Glad your Dad is doing better. Hoosegow? Mom and I chuckled at that one on YP! Hopefully they will let him come home soon--once he has done his time, sorta!

Mom and I are tired of the a/c, but you need it with the temps here, facing west, big windows facing west, and the ever present humidity and dew points. 86 now.

Mom went to donate blood today, and they were very backed up--waited 45 minutes and she had an appointment. The good part is that people are turning up to donate--the tech said that with all the recent events that have happened here and overseas, it brings up the need for blood donations. Mom has been donating every 8 weeks, so she is happy to see the uptick in people coming in. After that, she went to Trader Joe's and got me some peas, and some cherry tomatoes. Those should be coming in at the farmer's market soon. And she picked up these Chili Lime Chicken burgers--YUM! When she came home, she said that it was like she was gone for hours: velcro bird!

Hope you had a super day! Wing hugs comin' atcha!

I hope your dad is feeling better and soon gets out of the hospital!!
Another “surprise” day since BC is still up and running!
Today was hot but a bit of a breeze (or moms mind thought so) so made it feel cooler to her then yesterday was.
Mom bought one of those zapper fly swatters and thought the light lit up a fly flew right through the net and never died so that was when mom was sure it didn’t work. Well today she decided to take it back to the store while she was out and about getting groceries too. Mom was a tad late getting home then what she usually is but she left earlier too so it did take longer. Now she should be home with me all day tomorrow!
After mom got home I got my bath and then out for a sunbath and stayed out about 30 minutes to enjoy the sun. When we got back in the house I lost two more big feathers later. This molting is a pain in the tail feathers!

Now that's something that the price per box was cheaper here than it was there!Mom always figures that things are more eggspensive here because we live on the Mainland and things have to be brought over the Bridge to us,like eggspensive gas for the cars!It's the shipping that really kills you though and you could've bought a whole other case of cereal for the price of it all.But then like Aunt Pam is thinking(which my Mom is also)once they can no longer be got in the store we are pretty much done with it all.Its a shame we can't get a discount rate on the shipping as we're shipping out large amounts and not just one little box!
Mom and I were so surprised to see BC still here this morning when we got the computer on.It's now down to a guessing game as each day goes by.But you can count on me being here til they refuse to let me log in either that or send me up a white blank page!
That's such good news that your daddy was in a cheerful mood when Aunt Pam went to see him this morning,that's such a good sign.Oh YUCK!powdered eggs?in French toast?That's really gross!It was good that the cafeteria has decent food there.You gotta keep his strength up and it can't be done with gross food.It sounds like what they gave Nana in rehab,the food was disgusting and they didn't care whether anyone ate it or not.
I know just how you feel being left alone for a whole day at a time.I hated it when my Mom left me to go to the hospital to see Nana and then to stay all night with my dad when he kept going to the hospital.I'm hoping that you can latch your toenails into Aunt Pam's shirt and she can't untangle you so she has to stay home with you!Now wouldn't that make for a nice evening?
This morning dawned another hot steamy day outside with the highs for the day of 89 the lows of 72 and right now its 85 and its not even noon time yet.The humidity levels are at 77%.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages and fed us our rice and corn breakfast and then swept our room.Its way too hot to vacuum and Mom is glad that she did that yesterday.The storm we were supposed to have last night never came and dissipated as soon as it came over Rhode Island.Dad had run to close all the windows and had to open them all up again.
Mom and all of us were so surprised to see that BC was still here when we put the computer on this morning as we were certain they would shut us down today.It seems like a guessing game here now as each day comes and goes.Will there be BC will we see a blank spot where it had been for the last ten years or so?We are only too happy to still be able to stay and visit every birdie here for as long as we get to do so.
Its way too hot to do much of anything and we're not even sure if they'll be any outdoor deck time for us until much later on tonight.We are having another boring day here but that's just fine with us as tomorrow Mom will be gone running errands with Nana and skin sis.We finally got out with Mom and dad to join them for dinner on the deck w

  Hi Kiddo,
another hot day here...in the 100s again, got to get outside work done early in the morning before it gets way to hot...

Dad took the Mustang in for an oil change this morning and while dad was gone mom was very busy. She cleaned their bathroom, did some trimming of roses in the front yard and put more water in the fountain...that does need to be cleaned. She then went into the back yard and cleaned the tables back there. She also cleaned Simon's T-stand.

Tonight might be the last night here on BC so they say...never know.

  Hi ya Kiddo~
I'm still here lurking!Hehehehehehe Today might be it and the might just throw me off tomorrow! Well, all of us!!
I have had to much fun here and I have so many awesome memories!! I don't think youpet is going to be anything like that since it's so public but at least we can still be together and perhaps Facebook will make up for what we can't do on youpet!!
Enjoy the day buddy! Hope your dad is good and didn't have to go to the hospital!

  well . . . let's see if this is it
Every time me and mom log on we take a deep breath wondering if BC will be here - we know our time is running out before we have to move to YP and FB permanently . . . there's just something so very special about here . . .

Another HOT, STEAMY day in NY - just sitting and doing nothing mom is melting. Plus the Italian Festival is over and it's time to cook again :( OK, not cook, find cold suppers - good thing daddy is OK with sammiches . . .

Last night ? My Laura came to visit ! She was doing some project with her kids (she teaches summer school) and needed to borrow mom's iron today - doesn't the younger generation own irons ? Well, guess what I'm getting my Laura for Christmasn ? har har har !

Have a wonderful day - stay cool - sending prayers for uncle Dave ! Cookie

  Heya, Kiddo!
Nope, this is the only newspaper in town, so Mom is stuck with them.

So glad your Dad is going to go to the doctor tomorrow. He has to know that he will need to get some type of dialysis, but I bet it is something he doesn't relish. Not a fun prospect but so much better than being 6 feet under.

We saw that the BC is supposed to close on the 26th? Mom never read the message when she logged it, but I think Sugar said that it was the day. Now that we are on YP, it is not as bad to think of not coming here, but...it is still sad.

What a day outside! It was 90 today, but with the dew point at 77, we felt like 102. Mom said it was a sauna out there! The bunny rabbit was in his depression behind the bridal wreath bush, and he did not move when Mom got some weeds out along the garage by Grandpa's. She did not do as much as she would have liked as it was just way too toasty out there.

Mom got a reply from the newspaper, and they are crediting her account for yesterday. And thankfully, her paper arrived today! YIPPIE! Let's hope she will get her Wed paper. She felt like she should put out a neon sign out there with a big arrow pointing to her lobby door saying "Sunday-Wednesday-Friday-Saturday delivery here!" A flashing neon sign.

Wing hugs coming atcha!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Kiddo
Good your dad agrees to go to see the doctor tomorrow! Hope things go well and sending prayers for him.
Well like Cookie said I5 doesn’t work on the weekends so we are on another day with BC.
Today was hot and humid and in the 90’s so way too hot for a sunbath even early this morning. We got some rain this evening and it cooled it down a tad. Summer time is nice but we don’t want it this hot but mom says the weather can’t be ordered.
The milonga was nice on FB last night but real confusing for us so we just listened and watched once we announced we were there.

  go and Mom made a nice salad with small tomatoes and got the dressing on the tray and all the utensils to grill with.Skin sis came over shortly after that and then Mom got us all outside in our deck cages and Peepers and Celine came with skin sis and they went in Candida's deck cage.Mom showered all of us good til we were soaking wet.Dad started the grill and then while the skin sibs relaxed Mom grilled.After everyone was done skin sis helped Mom clean up and bring the stuff inside,Mom washed all the dishes,utensils and then she brought out some fresh fruit and yogurt dip and my dad and skin bro had push up pops.Everyone sat on the lawn by the grill watching the wildlife and we got some strawberries and cherries and some chicken.Mom kept showering us and then she brought Dixie back down to the lawn and he got to sit in her lap while everyone hung out.Skin bro left around 5:30pm and shortly after that our hummingbird came and took a drink.Skin sis and Mom moved up to the deck with us again and she stayed till well after 6:00pm and Mom packed her up some meats to take home with her.Mom quickly grabbed a shower and now finally that its quiet here,she's is here ready to help us with our notes.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hi Kiddo
Mom and I are so happy to see BC when we wake up in the morning and get the computer on.And you're so right about it being a hot one,probably not as hot as where you are but still sticky and humid.That is just awful that poor Aunt Pam gets those nose bleeds from the high humidity and that just has to be so uncomfortable and we pray that she stops getting them and can feel better and the humidity goes down again,that's what really makes the heat so unbearable.
Oh Kiddo we are so upset that your poor daddy is not feeling well again and you can know that our prayers are going out to him and Aunt Pam for healing so he will be back to himself again.The last time he was sick was so scary and he had to go through so much.Mom put both Aunt Pam's name and your dad's in the special intentions book at church for prayers of healing,Aunt Pam and Uncle Dave's names always go in that book each and every week for prayers for healing and good health.We here too only want him to get better,Mom and I know what its like to have our daddies so sick and in pain.
We enjoyed ourselves at the Milonga even though it was so confusing to scroll up and down trying to find who was talking to you.Mom got a headache from all that scrolling and trying to go up and down to find the birdie who left us a message.
I will see if I can friend you Kiddo when I go to YP myself and maybe I can get through for the both of us.This is the frustrating part of that,its more of a FB type thing where you have to friend one another to get to leave messages for that particular birdie!
Mom feels so bad about the expense of the shipping and if and when you get the package on Friday just let Mom and me know if you want the other case.Its just so outrageous what they charge to ship anything.I guess you gotta figure the cost of the item being shipped and that will be the price you have to pay!Just so not right!
This morning was another bright hot sunny day with the highs for the day of 82 the lows of 69 and right now at 7:30pm its 78 and cooling off a bit.Mom got us up and fed us our rice and corn breakfast and cleaned our cages,swept our room and then she got dad's coffee ready and his waffle breakfast.Skin bro called Mom because he couldn't get Nana on the phone and Mom tried calling to tell her he was outside her door.Mom had to leave a message and Mom called skin bro back and told him to knock on the Bird Room window because Nana was probably there cleaning our cousins cages and room and he finally got in.Then Mom made dad his pb&j sandwiches for the work week and then she barely finished getting my dad's lunch box ready skin bro came in the door.Skin bro gave Mom his paycheck to sort out for his bills and Mom gave him spending money for the week from that and put the rest away.Mom got the grill meats ready,two chicken breast halves with wing and leg pieces and she marinated them in BBQ sauce and got the hot turkey sausages out and hot dogs,hamburgers,rolls and condiments on the tray to

  Hi Kiddo
mom is very depressed because no matter what we do with Boo Boo she isn't acting any better. sometimes we see a sign of her old self and become so excited but then she reverts back to this sick little bird again. she is still eating and drinking but hardly moving around at all. last night we became quite excited when she managed on her own to reach the top perch for her bedtime but by 3:30am she was back to sitting on the floor again and hasn't shown any interest in getting on any of her perches. mom hasn't slept now for 4 days and is very exhausted but will continue to maintain a close vigil on Boo Boo.

love to you all

  Hello Kiddo~
I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday. Quiet one around here buy that is the way Sunday should be.
I'm having my apple with a slice of peach today. Not too sure about it yet. I have eaten them before but since I don't get them very often, I have to watch it for a while to make sure it's safe for bird consumption!
It's a nice day here and we are suppose to hit 80 today! Summer came back!
Mom's store is going through a remodel so mom said they have invented a new game like Pokemon Go. It's called "Where did the aisle Go!" Instead of walking around to collect Pokemon you have to walk around and fine the aisles! Part of stationery is back by toys and the other half is up in Cosmetics. Took mom some time to find the wall art since they moved that to bed and bath! Eventually everything will be put back together and have a home that makes sense but for now trying to hang ad signs has become a challenge. Customers are all confused also but they seem to like to go look at the ripped up aisle. Mom sure is getting plenty of walking in!
Have a wonderful day!!

  hi Kiddo and aunt Pam
Sending prayers for your daddy's health and mom's strength as she tries to talk sense into him . . .

What a great party last night - even if it did confuse my FB challenged mom trying to keep up with so many threads. I had a great time and I know she did too. There were even friends there that I haven't seen here in a very long time ! That was super :) I do think that FB will work for our parties and soirees though . . . just a little more practice. . . at least on our end !

Although yesterday was supposedly the hottest day of the year so far, the humidity was just an itsy bit less than Friday so it wasn't as oppressive . . . of course it's going to stay like this straight till Thursday - so today mom and dad will go EARLY to pick up a few groceries, check on the g'parronts, and then head home for a quiet day with ME ! I hope you can have a quiet day with mom - maybe get out for just a few minutes ?

Enjoy your day and stay cool ! love you ! Cookie

  Hi Kiddo
So far I haven't gotten anything from you in the YP emails they send out to tell me that you have left a message for me or anything.I'm with you,this YP site is so confusing and at times I have no idea if I'm sending my message to the birdie its supposed to go to!I'll have to check back and see if we got the friend thing done.I could've sworn I sent you a friend me but who knows how that goes?Send me another one and I'll let you know if I got it or not!
I agree with you that techies don't work weekends so maybe this will give us more time and maybe by Monday we may still be here!Its too bad that everyone took down their pages so soon.FB-BC is so confusing to my Mom,she never goes to FB and finds it so hard to navigate.And like you said we could've had our Milonga here had we known this was going happen!
This morning was a hot steamy sunny morning,the highs of 89,the lows of 72 and right now its 87. When Mom got us up she cleaned our cages and swept our room and then we got our breakfast of rice and corn.Then she got dad's breakfast of cinnamon raisin toast and coffee ready and got a few things done before the two of them took off to get some errands done at WalMart.The traffic was heavy as usual and when they got there they bought 6 bags of 20lb bird seed,a big jug of oil for Mom's car and an oil filter,deodorant for my dad,eye glass cleaner,batteries,and 6 bags of charcoal.Can you believe its still grilling season and they're getting low and not replenishing the charcoal section?All the back to school things are where the grilling things were!It's only July and August isn't even here yet and you can't even get anymore charcoal!When Mom and dad came home Mom worked on more of her chores as they have to go back out in an hour and hopefully they'll be back in time for us to go to the Milonga tonight.We may be a little late but we'll be there.Mom is making this quick so she can get our notes done so we will see you at the Milonga!
UPDATE:Mom got us all out on the deck for about an hour tonight while she and dad had pizza,Dad shared us his pizza crust and Dixie was really chowing down.The bunny came back and was really chowing down a huge mouthful of grass.My dad put out a container with water in it for him because he thought he was very hot and thirsty as he was stretched out by Mom's garden on the other side of the house.It was nice being outside and the sun had gone down and it wasn't so hot like it was today.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Heya, Kiddo!
We are sending our good thoughts and prayers your Dad's way. This is so scary to hear, and if he waits too long, well, that almost killed him. He is not thinking straight now--even though he says he is. But...your Mom tell him how selfish he is for just thinking about himself and not her. Handcuff him and hog tie him and call the EMT's.

Suggestion on the Milonga: Have a main welcome blog for everyone to reply or comment on. Gosh, it was making Mom and me dizzy watching the page jump around! For us non-FB users, it gets confusing. Mom is following what is going on, but unless you are on the most recent blog, you get forgotten. Also, we don't know some of the parronts names, so maybe introducing yourself and who your birdie is might help. We did that at the beginning.

Suggestions only. We can be on for the first part of the Milonga, and can post any buffet pix in one spot. But think that one main post with everything else under it would be lovely.

We continue with the sauna outside, though it is hazy, so maybe we won't get so bad. But that dew point rivals the kind found in Miss Chyna's Florida! We love the heat but this humidity and dew points are way too energy sapping for their own good.

Day 4 of the newspaper saga continues. No paper today. Phone call to Customer Service--so sorry! We will redeliver it today. Between 10-2. They never delivered it. So Mom went to try to get a credit...and they said you can only put in one complaint a day. Um...so she emailed them and told them this is ridiculous to never get a paper all week. Stupid!

Other than that, I am making the most of the opportunity to relax on Mom and catch a nap and headscritch.

Wing hugs coming atcha!
Your buddy,
Kaji ♥
