Dad continues to have health issues, but hopefully he is getting a all the time. For now it is just watching the protein, because the chemo left his kidneys weak.

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 says vote 4 Mikey D #247164 for BOTM!

I am a Senegal Parrot from Simi Valley, CA.

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


13 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..

  Hi, Kiddo
Yeah, our library system works with many of our neighboring cities so if another location has it and put it on hold they will send it to the local one. Then can return to the local library and they will send it back to the home location. So nice to be able to put a hold on items still on order and then be one of the first to read it. Has done the same with new CDs too.

Around here spring weather has always fluxuated. Normally on the cool side with lots of wind but then could be warm too. We've had both.

All the hat pics are so wonderful. Very tough to pick only one lady and one gent a day.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  What a good boy Kiddo
mom told you "no biting" and you didn't ? I would have anyway, just so she knows who's boss !

I hope you have a lovely day ! This is my last "I miss mom" day - her drama club production day is finally here and although she'll be gone a lot of it, once it's over, she'll be home from school at a decent hour again ! Of course she has to head out at about 4:00 this afternoon and the cast party doesn't end till midnight (mom and 40+ young teens ? YIKES ! She'll sleep most of tomorrow !)

Plus it's finally warming up - it was just so COLD the last couple days ! And it's almost May ! That means summer time has to be heading in our direction, right ?

See you tomorrow my friend ! love Cookie

  Hey Kiddo!
As morning approaches the smell of bacon and eggs permeates the air and every birdies nares as they awake in a hungry stage. Their bodies still sleeping but the smell of food being cooked over an open fire kinda wakes up their hungry belly.

Pookie along with Cookie and Laka float towards the smell of food cooking along with the other birds as they slowly awake from a blissful nights sleep.

They look on the buffet table and breakfast is ready for who ever is hungry.

The bacon and eggs and blueberry pancakes awaken the sleepiest birds.
Mom says the plates are on the table along with breakfast so help yourself.

Pookie eyes the blueberry pancakes as that is his favorite. Laka looks at all the fruit. Pineapple, mango, papaya bananas and fresh blueberries too.

Wow what a spread!! Every birdies beak us watering just looking at all the food.

There's guava, orange, pineapple, apple and lilikoi juice and hot cocoa too if you want.

Everyone starts piling the food on their plates.

Mom had a tooth pulled on Saturday so that's why we're extending the beach time. Today she went back to the dentist as she kept having pain and sure enough it was a little infected. :(. He shot her twice to clean up the wound where the tooth was pulled, but while doing that mom could feel pain. The injection had worn off which is unusual so he gave her another shot and this time mom was all numb and dumb. She has ta go back again tomorrow to check on the boo boo as it tastes terrible this medicine. What ever mom eats or drinks she tastes the medicine. So hopefully it will be better after tomorrow.

So for now its still beach time guys !!! Everyone yells yeah !!!

Boogie board time yells Cookie and Pookie who race to the water after breakfast while Laka and Chyna decide to just lounge around and catch some rays.

Here's a vote for you and another happy day at the beach!

Love,

Pookie and Laka

Don't you just hate to hear ... NO BITE! What's with that? We have to make sure our beaks are still strong ... right?
I'm happy to see we have a good number in the hat contest. I was surprised at how many gents we have.
I'll take your 80's temps anytime! Mom is worried that her Derby party will be cold. I hope not. I reminded her to get busy with the Milonga race!!
It was a good morning at the perch today. We had sun and it melted the snow. But, that cold wind came back.
We need some warm temps up here!

when mom says to me no biting it makes me so mad i run over and bite her and then yell ouch. mom then says if you bite me again your going to get a spanky and i scream ouch even before get the spanky.

even when we were having the warmer weather mom was feeling very cold which she thought was strange. 70degrees outside and mom was freezing. last night when mom went to bed she couldn't get warm and kept feeling colder and colder. she also felt very nauseous. when she woke up this morning she still felt cold and just felt plain rotten. tonight she has a nasty sore throat and all she wants to do is sleep. she must have picked up a virus.

  Hi Kiddo
This morning was a coldish sunny morning with our highs for the day of 50 and our lows will be 35,its 46 right now.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and fed us and swept up our room and got all the trash loaded in the car,Dixie was put in his carrier and then he and Mom took off to Nana's.When they got there,Nana was still working with Amy her PT VNA doing exercises so Mom went and got her mail,and collected her bird room trash and got her other trash and loaded everything in Nana's car to take to the dump.Then as soon as Amy left,Nana got ready to go and they went to the dump and then to the bank to do some banking business for skin sis,then they went to Walgreen's so Nana could return something that wasn't going to work,then by the time they came home it was after 2:00pm.So Nana made a salad with tuna for lunch and then Mom cleaned Nana's ears out with the ear candles she made and then Nana did Mom's ears.Both Mom and Nana visited for a while and just when Mom was ready to leave skin bro called Mom and wanted her to get him a gift card in Stop&Shop so he could pay his car insurance,so Mom had to dig up $164.00 to pay for the card($6.00 activation fee) and put the rest of the amount on the card so he could pay his insurance.Mom took Dixie into the store with him because she didn't want to leave him in the car as it was really getting cold outside,Dixie was very good,snuggling inside Mom's coat,he had his harness and leash on,no one knew he was there.Mom had to really look hard to find the right gift card,it took her 15 minutes and she still had the wrong one,then while she was waiting in line,the person in back of her found the right card at the checkout.Mom finally got through the check out and went home,when she got out of the car and saw the amount she was so upset,they put the wrong amount down.So she was ready to head back after putting Dixie back in his cage when Dad saw how upset she was so he took her all the way back to Mashpee.Then while Mom was there she remembered she forgot to pick up Nana's outgoing mail so dad drove her back to Nana's so Mom could pick up her mail.Mom came home and got dad a late dinner and then had to deal with other stressful things with skin bro.Mom is so tired and hopes that tomorrow she will be able to have some time for herself. I'm sorry this is short but Mom is so tired and she's gonna fall asleep on me!
Mom will have to remember about the salad spinner and the lid!Please forgive me for being so short,Mom's had another long hard stressful day and I promise I'll be back tomorrow to talk more!She's so tired and can't see straight right now and we still have to vote for Derby hats,Mom didn't get to start our blogs until after nine tonight.So much going on around here!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs!Love,Dixie

  Heya, Kiddo!
Mom should have asked how long before a decision would be made, but she did not. She is okay with waiting. Maybe something else will open up. Hard to say. She did not get a rejection from NM, so that is good. They actually let you know if you don't qualify for things--very rare.

Will be voting after I finish up with your blog. Glad it is started, and I hafta check out the entries. I know they are gonna be awesome!

Mom ran out for groceries before the rain came, and hafta say she brought me back good stuff--matoes, peas and carrots. Yummy! And then she made me some rice, which we don't have a whole lot. Boy, was that good! She put some tumeric in it, and some chicken broth, and then some Tandoor spices (she really likes food from India). Do we say that I was beak first in my dish for a long time? Yeah. And she mixed in some of the chili from yesterday. Happy, happy bird!!!

Its been way toooo cold here for me to go outside too. Its suppose to warm up next week so sure hope so. Good your mom is knowing your body language for the bite mood and nips it in the bud LOL
Guess mom got the alarm off on the projection clock and wonder of wonders the parronts woke up this morning and the time was right on so it did set it self right too!! Mom left here a little after 10 to go to the dentist for her scheduled teeth cleaning and exam. Here her eye tooth filling broke off and there was decay across the tooth. It would of taken a big filling to fix it and probably would of not stayed in long either. Mom decided to get the tooth crowned. She got it all prepped today and a temporary cap on it till the real one comes in. Mom says she is glad that part is done cause it’s the worse of the whole procedure. She was gone 4 hours so was happy dad was home for me. Sure glad I have a beak and not them teeth!! “If there ever comes a time when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.” V4U. Hugs~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

It's really tough making a decision on who to vote for with only one vote per flock and so many entries! We did go there, but it's a tough call. Mom suspects we will vote for different birds every day, just to make sure everyone gets a vote.
It's another cool day, in the mid 40s right now, but maybe it will be warmer next week.
Yesterday mom and her sis went to the President's Circle open house and reception at the Animal Rescue League. Between the shelter and the center, they treated over 12,000 animals last year! You already heard about the nearly 3000 wildlife animals and their success rate, and now here's the great news--ARL adopted out over 7000 of the 9000 animals they took in, isn't that fantastic? Mom's sis was glad there were no kittens in yet this year, but mom is hoping she will go back in a couple of weeks, when they will be inundated with kittens, and pick one up for herself.
This morning mom got to do the avian nursery. She was so glad to be somewhere other than the RVS room again. It was a real pleasure to clean bird cages and feed birds. There is a red bellied woodpecker in there right now, as well as robins, doves, and a waxwing. The center was very happy to accept mom's check for Peppino's hugs and kisses for $105. It will help a lot. Mom also signed up to do a tour there on Tuesday and to work the marathon event on Friday of next week. Hope she can just get a morning shift for that event.
I hope you are having a fantastic day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kiddo
HOWDY BC partners, Mikey D here as we ponder just how we're gonna save both Miss Falco and Jesse from the talons of some nasty outlaw member of Black Bart's gang. As we spread out to search every nook and cranny of this Old Ghost Town, Miss Falco is busy dealin' a nasty blow to her bird-napper.
"Oh, I am so angry about my friend Falco being birdnapped by that nasty ol' hawk. I can't wait to get my six-shooter pointed in his direction. We'll show him we don't take kindly to our friends being bushwhacked!" Kiddo shouts as he shoulders open the door to the blacksmith's shop beside the Livery stable. He and Angel-tiel bolt inside, guns at the ready. A group of birdies follow them inside as they check every inch of the ole' buildin' " nuthin' here, let's keep goin'"
Jesse can hear his bird-napper outside as they talk softly about what was takin' place back in town. He hears Falco's name mentioned and his anger grows. He tries to call out, but the cloth tied around his beak prevents him making a sound. He sits thinking for a moment then worried for Falco,
"I MUST get free and save Falco. That nasty, foul-smellin' Hawk's gonna find out who I am" with that Jesse begins to swarm and wiggle, working to loosen his bindings. He pulls and tugs and finally feels the ropes begin to give a little slack.
" Did that hurt?" Falco asks coyly, trying hard to find a grin, " a little ol' girl couldn't hurt someone as strong as you?" she giggles out loud, then seeing Hawk-eyes look, she stops with difficulty .
"You just be settin' there and behavin' Black Bart will be along right shortly to deal with ya and your band of goodie-two-shoes"
BB sneaks out the back door of the jail to do some lookin' around for Jesse on her own. "Maybe he is not even being held in this ghost town any more! There is a old mine shaft in the hills close by" so BB mounts Sundancer & heads out to do more scouting. Riding north, she works her way up towards the mine from the back end. Tying Sundancer to a bush she grabs her riffle from the scabbard and checks her six-shooter, then carefully makes her way to a large boulder just above the mine's entrance. There, she hankers down to listen carefully as she watches two of Black Bart's gang pacin' nervously back 'n' forth.
"We better leave Jesse here and go see to gettin' Bart outta jail." a small, wiry bird tells his partner, a gangly sea gull in ragged clothes. She sees his dirty hat nod, then both head towards the north east where their horses had been hitched. BB grins, "the horses are long gone towards the south west.' She chuckles softly to herself as she inches closer to the mine's entrance.
"If I were you I'd be lettin' me go mighty fast, my friends are headin' this way right now and it ain't gonna go well for you!" Falco tells her bird-napper. He peers out the dusty window, what he sees makes him cringe.

V4U today. We're still waiting for the crepe myrtle to leaf out. None of the crepe myrtle's around town have bounced back from the winter yet either. Our lilac has leafed out already, no flowers on the lilac yet though. Nothing new here, just been very busy. Along with everything else, the lawn and garden chores have started again, so that adds more to the to-do list. The heater had to go on last night, it was so chilly. The weather here hasn't been too good, lots of rain and even more rain is on the way again. Have a good weekend. From, Mayo.

  Hi, Kiddo
When mom is thinking about it she checks the library for new books and if it is on order then can get on the waiting list. If wait until the book arrives then the waiting list is loooonnnnnnggg. Things are checked out for 3 weeks but none can be renewed if others are waiting. Mom will undoubtedly finish before her three weeks are up, heehee.

Feels cool here too with the wind. Still sunny though.

You ate more spinach? Maybe you are beginning to like it and if you get more praise, scritching and kisses then that's wonderful as well.

That better be a very tiny piece of spinach! You don't want to try anything new and look like you like it. Have to keep the parronts on there toes.
This is a sad week for the BC, I think. many are deleting their pages and jumping to the FB. Even the flower shop and pie shop are closing and that is very sad. I wonder if we will have a derby next year? Maybe we'll just have a hat contest???
Today was day 3 of new snow for us :(
Today was cold and windy with light snow and a high of 30 degrees. This is wrong! I'm protesting, I want 70 degrees! I had to drink my hot tea with my fuzzy slippers on. I should be wearing flip flops!

we are still getting snow here. its not sticking but the wind sure is cold.

one more thing about spiders……... Spiders

You should always keep a spider
At least one in every room
Give them a little corner
With an offering of food

They'll spin away at night
And they'll hunt for you by day
Keeping your house clean of pest's
In their very special way

So do not go hard with insect spray
When bluebottle's and flies come your way
Remember the little spider's
Who hide themselves away

MY DEAREST KIDDO. TODAY WAS BETTER THAN YESTERDAY, LESS WINDY AND TEMP WAS ABOUT 53 AND THE SUN WAS OUT. MOM STILL NEEDED A JACKET TO WEAR WHEN OUTSIDE. TOMORROW THEY ARE SAYING IT MIGHT GET UP HIGHER BUT TONIGHT WILL BE LOW 30'S AND POSSIBLY UPPER 20'S. THAT MEANS FROST ON THE GROUND. SATURDAY WILL BE BACK IN THE 40'S. MAYBE BY MAY WE WILL SEE SPRING?

SO YOU WERE TEASING YOUR MOM TAKING A BITE OF SPINACH. MOM AND THE FAMILY DON'T EAT IT SO IT NEVER COMES IN THE HOUSE. WE HAD LEFTOVER MEATLOAF MADE BY G-PA. I ATE ALL MY MEATLOAF AND THE CORN AND A BIT OF CARROT. THE GREEN BEANS I REFUSED TO TOUCH. MOM KEEPS GIVING THEM TO ME BUT NO WAY THOSE ARE GETTING INTO MY BEAK.

WOW THERE ARE 27 ENTRIES IN THE DERBY HAT CONTEST?? ITS GOING TO BE VERY HARD CHOOSING. OF COURSE MY VOTE WILL GO FOR YOU MY LOVE. YOU LOOK SO DASHING IN YOUR BLUE FELT HAT.

MOM HAD A GOOD WORKOUT AT THE GYM TODAY. SHE TALKED THE TRAINER INTO DOING THE 30 MIN CIRCUIT WORKOUT. IT WENT BY FAST AND MOM FELT LIKE SHE REALLY DID A GREAT JOB. TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY AT THE GYM THEN WEEKEND OFF.

DO YOU THINK IT WILL GET WARM ENOUGH SO YOU CAN GET A SUNBATH TOMORROW? I HOPE SO.

  Heya, Kiddo!
Gotta say, I like your line of thinking, and so does Mom. Just breaks it down to the basics, and that is what Mom is gonna think about the whole situation. It is true, too. Mom doesn't understand why they would post the same job this week, though. That is kinda weird. But whatever, Mom says. In the meantime, she is enjoying time with me and enjoying time doing other stuff. Like cleaning and getting rid of stuff. Now it is all the extra dishes and old containers that she should have gotten rid of long ago. Good to keep her busy, that is for sure.

Today Mom took off to go visit her friend Kim, and get her tablet set up again. Long story. She came back and brought me some really yummy chili that Kim's hubby made. And then I let her know I was not happy she took off, and bit her on the finger. She now has a lovely beak "V" on the side of her finger. She gave me a time out on my playgym. I think she forgave me cuz now I am napping on her shoulder.

Spinach? Fresh spinach is really good! And glad you enjoyed the gumbo. I know I would!! But not okra. No way!

Oh my,I just can't believe all that from a salad spinner!Mom was going to put the head of lettuce she just bought the other day in the salad spinner but since poor Aunt Pam got a bad bite from it Mom changed her mind and didn't use it today!Oh does Aunt Pam have a big hole in her finger now?We sure hope that it doesn't hurt so bad anymore!I think that would be a greyt reminder the next time you take a nip out of her again!Which I sure hope you won't!
Now what is making you enjoy that spinach so much?I just love to eat whatever my Mom is slicing and dicing and as long as I'm eating whatever Mom is chopping I can stay with her on the table!I usually love eating peppers and tomatoes and most anything else she chops up for me!Now don't it make you feel so good that you get all those skritches and kisses for doing something your Mom wants you to eat?Oh I won't touch that nasty okra either!But that gumbo sounds really good!Rice and all!
This morning started out nice and sunny not very bright but at least it was sunny and cheery,then by late morning the sun was squeezed out of the sky by lots of dark grey clouds and the wind picked up.The highs for the day were 50 and the lows are to be 35 its 43 right now,we nearly made it to 50 but the temperatures quickly started to drop.It looks like its going to rain any minute now.Mom's been home with us all day trying to catch up on all her house chores she never seems to get finished in a days time.She still has to collect the trash and get that ready to take tomorrow to the dump and she has to call the hardware store to see if they have something she needs before she tries going there and finding out they don't have what she wants after all.What is with this weather teasing us with one good warm sunny day and then giving us the cold wintry stuff back again!Now they're talking snow for us tomorrow or tonight!It's the end of April already,May will be here in a few weeks!Enough already!
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
Sounds like your getting to like that spinach pretty good LOL
Mom has a projection clock in the bedroom that shows the time and temperature on the ceiling. Now mom watches that thing a lot during the night and the temperature just has lines there the last two nights. Today she was on a mission to fix it. She changed the batteries in the clock though it is electric guess it still needs them too and changed the batteries in the transmitter outside. After putting the 5 new batteries in it still wasn’t working right so dad messed with it a bit and said he had it fixed. Well the time is wrong and now the alarm keeps going off this evening but I think mom got that fixed. Dad says maybe the time will change on its own after a few days so we shall see if that happens or not LOL. “If there ever comes a time when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.” V4U. Hugs~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Thanks so much buddy for getting my picture in the contest!
No sun bath today? Bummer. It was a bit chilly here too. That's great that you've got your mom for the whole day!
So.......you accidentally ate some spinach again? Heehee. You might just end up liking it! Okra? Oh no no no no no! That's not ever going to touch my beak!
Can't wait to start voting in the derby hat contest tomorrow! So many awesome hats and pictures!!!!

  Hello Kiddo~
I hope you are having a fantastic day! We are getting mom ready to head back to work tonight. She'll have to work 6 days this week but then she will have a 3 day weekend! YAY! They are going to go see Avengers II! I will have to wait for the DVD since I hear that movie theaters are not a good place for birds!
I have been busy this morning deleting birds from the hatchday list and the memorial list. I usually delete a bird who has not been on BC for a year since I figure after a year they probably aren't coming back. Today I had several request from flocks to delete their names. Some of their pages have been deleted also. They have other projects they are going to be working on and will not have the time for the BC right now. If you see a friend missing from the list, I did not mess up, it was just a request from the flock!
I hope your day is spectacular and that you get to do lots of fun things!!

  Hi Kiddo
That's good news about mom's finger! Hope it continues to heal and will not hurt any more. It does sound like more damage than we birds would inflict, especially birds of our size. Hope you get some good rainfall, we know you need it.
Mom saw SNOW on her way home from the museum today! Really, snow!!! It's chilly out there, and gray and cloudy, but who thought snow would show up? Hope it starts feeling like spring again soon, and not fall.
This morning mom only had one tour at the museum, and it was a lot of fun. The group was second grade again, but they were cute and there were only 8 in the group so that made it easy. It was an animal tour, too, and mom got to start in birds just the way it should be, haha. Later this evening mom is attending a donor event at the Animal Rescue League Shelter. They do this every year, and mom likes to go because it gives her a chance to socialize with some of her colleagues that she doesn't see very often. Her sister is going with her this year, too, so that should be interesting. It's been a couple of years since her sister lost a cat, so maybe she'll see somebody tonight that needs her to adopt him/her.
We were sad to read that the pie shop and the flower shop are going to close. We have fond memories of both of them, especially the pie shop, where we make deliveries twice a week.
I hope you are having better weather than we are, and that you are getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hi Kiddo
Howdy partners, no time to be talkin' not with Black Bart heading with his gang to the ole' jail. Pearl and Silver smile " What a greyt feeling to be taking Black Bart and his cronies to lockdown (where they deserve to be) but we cowbirdies still don't have Jesse back." BB is riding out of the mountains towards the ghost town when she sees Falco being jerked into the general store. by a scruffy-lookin' Hawk. She slaps Sundancer on the shoulder and encourage her into a gallop as she winds her way towards the Ghost Town. "What foul deeds are going on now" she thinks. BB rides around town to scout things out & sees a strange horse out back of the general store. On the other side of town BB sees Boss D & the wagon crews putten Black Bart's gang in the jail house. BB enters the jails back door and tells every birdie what see saw at the general store. "It seems we have 2 birds being held hostage now"
Everybirdie turns around alarmed at the sudden sound of BB's voice. The news that Miss Falco has been bird-napped shocks everybird silent. "Oh no, not Falco! We have to rescue her from that awful hawk. I don't like hawks at all, ' Kiddo exclaims
Mikey D looks from Kiddo to Sky, then to the others searching for an answer. " We must move fast. Jesse and Falco are somewhere in town. "BART!," he growls angrily, " where ya got Jesse stashed? and NO! funny talk or you and your cronies are gotten be sorry!"
Black Bart begins to laugh, " now ain't ya all in a real bind? If' 'n ya don't set us free, you ain't findin' either Jesse or this Miss Falco either!" his eerie laughter echos in the old jail house.
"We have your gang hog-tied outside in the wagons. You make us a trade, we'll let ya have your lice-bitten hooligans back!" Sky says, an anger fillin' his eyes like a wildfire. Cappy marches Bart and his hooligans into the jail cell and locks them up, sittin' down to keep watch so there is NO jail breaks! " Ya' ll set outta here to search, find Jesse and Falco. I'll make sure our guests are all comfy-cozy."
The team bolts from the jail, spreadin' out to search for their friends, now held captive. Raffikki turns to Cookie and Pookie, " I bet Falco can hold her own!" they laugh a small worried laugh, then fly down the street to search in the livery stable.
Falco sits quietly, eying her captor. " Ya know they're gonna find me, and you'll end up gettin' your tail-feathers trimmed?" she grins straighten up under his angry glare.
" Now, no sassin' from ya missie" he yells walkin' over to within inches of her beak.
"Bad move buster" she yells, as she stomps down on his toes with her cow-girl boots, bitin' him on the wing at the same time.
"OWWWW" Hawk-eye screams, hoppin' on one foot, holdin' his wing with the other."Now, you're gonna get it, no more carryin' on!"

  Hi Kiddo
It's Popeye.
Some of you may already know this but for those who haven't, It is with much sadness that I announce the closure of the Pretty Rose Flower Shop and the Proud Bird Pie Shop. As of May 1st. both shops will be closed. It has been fun and an honor to serve the BC community but due to increased commitments there is not enough time to handle the tasks anymore. Also, several of our flock's enactive birds will also be removed.
We love you all and will miss seeing you at the pie shop and the flower shop.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 72 and a low of 55.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Hi, Kiddo
Temps here are back to the low 70s. No rain but heard north of us got some.

That is good your mom's booboo is healing. Who'd think a salad spinner could inflict such a bad bite?

We look forward to the voting beginning. So many great hat pics.

Our mom made a visit to the library yesterday. A new book came out so she'll read it right away as know others will be waiting for it to return.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Yep, it got cold again ! Not snow cold like some of my friends, but into the 40's :( What a bummer . . .

Yesterday, before mom got home I gave dad a test. I squawked for my bath and this time ? He got it right ! ! Good job Dad, you're learning to speak bird !

Tonight it'll be another evening of me and dad. Mom has her dress rehearsal for her drama club and won't even get out of school till 6:30 - she'll surely need quaker therapy by then ! Friday is an easier day - they're only staying till 4:00.

I think the back of the cabinet is a good place for mr. salad spinner ! Mom still has to replace hers - remember over the summer when daddy used hers to catch the bat that got in ? LOL - mom's just been cleaning her lettuces in the colander !

Have a super day and don't forget to try your wing at Name that Tune on page 231616 ! love Cookie

  Hi Kiddo,
Sorry mom got booted off the BC before we could get started with the Bon fire! :(

But that's okay one more day with fun in the sun! Whooo hooooo!!!

Hopefully this Bon fire will go through. ;)

Meanwhile Papa Peter gets the wood together for the Bon fire while its still lighted so he can see where to put the logs so they burn all night long. He sets up logs for everyone to sit on around the Bon fire. This one will be a good one he says as its a special night. ;)

Cookie over hears Papa Peter saying that its gonna be a special night so he asks why??

Papa Peter turns around and sees Cookie standing there watching him. Hmmm he rubs his chin and says its a secret and I can't tell you but I'm sure everyone will like it and he smiles and walks away getting more wood for the Bon fire.

As it starts to get dark everyone gathers around the bonfire and its nice and cozy as mom passes everyone a cup of cocoa and a plate of brownies and pineapple cake.

Everyone oohs and ahhhhs as she comes around with the tray of goodies and hot cocoa.

After everyone eats and sips their cocoa they hear a loud bang!!!!!

What was that everyone looks around. Pookie says look out there up in the sky!!!

It's a fireworks display!!!! Wow!!! Whooo hooooo!! Everyone is amazed and eggcited to watch the fireworks going off.

There is chatter from every birdie after that wonderful egg citing display of fireworks.

Did you see the happy face one asks Dixie, that was soo cool!!

Sugar says I liked the whole thing !!!

Okay everyone, enjoy the night sky as its so nice and clear you can see the Big Dipper and others.

We pitch the tent to go back home tomorrow so lets get a good nights rest. Awwww everyone sighs.

But that doesn't mean that we can't come back.

Everyone claps yay. !!!!

Okay nighty night everyone !!

Mom kisses everyone around the fire before she and dad turns in. Pookie says the parronts sleep early as they get older these days.

Plus shhhhh but there's a surprise breakfast for us. But don't day anything okay??

Hugs and a vote.

Love,

Pookie and Laka

Come visit me, Angel Sallykins, Pookie says I'm back chillin' in moms shirt. :) & Laka says more beach days for us, yay!!.

  Hi Kiddo
Sorry you didn't get your sunbath. We had our second day of snow :(
I'm happy to hear that your mom's finger is healing. See, you don't do damage like that! Do remind her the next time you slip up.
My new t-stand finally came today and I'm trying to get used to it ... it's bigger and has the food cups on it ... kind of fancy. I was using Bailey's old one and he had destroyed the food cups.
Looks like we have a good group of hats for the contest. I haven't heard of any bird still trying to get a hat on.
I wasn't happy to see the snow was back. It should stop by 9am tomorrow. Then we will have a partly cloudy Thursday with 34 degrees. It better get warm for May! I'm back in my footie pj's.
Happy Earth Day! Hugs ...

  Heya, Kiddo!
BC is being a bit weird again. Hopefully, the blog will show up...

Happy Earth Day back atcha. Did you know that there is a kid going around on a bike reporting folks who are using water recklessly in California? Wow.

Well, we had snow again today. Nothing much but it was really depressing. Wind chills were in the 20's. Sheesh. Typical mid-April weather here.

Mom had her interview, and she thinks it went well. The position was vacated by someone who moved to a different area. They still do a lot of stuff and print it out. There is another applicant, and yesterday they posted the position on LinkedIn, so who knows. The two folks she met with are older--40's and 50's. So that was reassuring, Mom said. She really doesn't want to work, you know. Not all the time, and not being stressed. Who knows? Work would be good for her, cuz she could save more money...but I would really rather have her home. She is still so undecided! It is that health insurance thing that weighs on her mind the most. It will work out however it is supposed to.

Wing hugs!
Your buddy,
Kaji

HI KIDDO, SO GLAD THAT YOUR MOMS FINGER IS HEALING NICELY. IODINE IS GOOD TO KILL GERMS. WHAT THEY USE IN SURGERY IS CALLED BETADINE. IT KIND OF STINKS IF NOT WASHED OFF IN A DAY OR TWO. IF MOM CUTS HERSELF BAD SHE WILL FIRST USE PEROXIDE THEN AFTER IT DRIES THEN SHE PUTS ON IODINE. IT HELPS IN HEALING.

MOM WILL TALK TO HER TRAINER ABOUT DOING THE CIRCUIT WORKOUT. AT LEAST IT WILL BE SOMETHING DIFFERENT. HE DOESN'T CHANGE UP ANYTHING MUCH.

WE HAD OUR THIRD DAY OF COLD WINDY WEATHER HERE. THE SUN DIDN'T EVEN BOTHER TO COME OUT. TONIGHT ITS GOING DOWN TO FREEZING SO MAY HAVE FROST IN THE MORNING. TOMORROW WILL BE ABOUT THE SAME CEPT THE SUN IS COMING OUT. IT WON'T HELP MUCH IF ITS STILL WINDY.

THIS WAS MOM'S LAZY DO NOTHING DAY. WE JUST RELAXED AT HOME.

HOPE YOU GET OUTSIDE FOR YOUR SUNBATH.

  Hello Kiddo~
I hope you had a wonderful day! Sound like hanging out with mom and doing some reading was a perfect day!
Mom went and got her new tires today. It only too her 45 minutes so that was great. They left one of the labels on one of the tires so it makes a funny noise when you drive. Mom tried peeling it off but she couldn't get it off either. It will wear off eventually!
I hope you have a wonderful night! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
