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 Ms. Ruby #35469 for Xmas Queen!!

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..

  Happy Thanksgiving Kiddo
V4U today. We're flying by to wish you and your family a wonderful and a very Happy Thanksgiving. :) Mom's busy in the kitchen, Dad's busy reading the paper. LOL :) Everyone will be coming to our house for Thanksgiving lunch today. Our flock has been told that we will get some of the food, too. :) Mom is sorry that she has not been blogging lately. Along with being busy, our oldest dog just had a cancerous tumor removed. So mom has been preoccupied with that. Thank you for your friendship, and have a wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving. :) From, Mayo

  Hi Kiddo,
Okay next set mom blows the whistle so every
Birdie knows time for the next set.

Laka says tails even before Pookie calls it! Haha she says and the coin is tossed and it falls tails in the sand so the girls serve.

Kacey serves and it goes over to Dixie and he bumps it up to Gus and he sets it up for Kiddo who spikes it over and Laka slides in the sand to hit the ball but Kiddos spike is too fast for her.

The boys yell yay !! And high four each other.

So now Pookie serves and it goes over to Candida and she hits it over to Cori who bumps it up to BooBoo who spikes it over to the dead spot and all the boys fly in the sand to get the ball but unable to. The girls all yell way to go BooBoo! And high four each other.

Little Angela turn and she serves the ball and it goes over Mikey and he bumps it up to Raffi who sets it up for Chipper who spikes it over to the girls dead spot and all the girls crumble to get the ball but end up in a dust storm.

The boys all cheer way to go Chipper! And high four each other.

Cookie serves and it goes over to Kacey who bumps it up Celine who sets it up for Cori who spikes it over and Pookie catches the ball. Pookie!! All the guys yell!! Pookie shrugs his shoulders and says sorry guys I was thinking of a pizza and just caught the ball. :(

Yay the girls all cheer, Cori, Cori!!! Then high four each other.

Pookie rolls the ball under the net for Chyna to serve. She serves it and it goes to Gus and he bumps it over to Pookie who sets it up for Gus who spikes it over to the girls dead zone. Yay the boys scream and high four each other.

The gear the whistle blowing and Pookies tummy growling and know its lunch time !!

Everyone heads to the tent for some yummy egg salad sandwiches and tuna with cucumber sandwiches and some fine chicken salad sandwiches along with sweet or sour pickles.

There's plenty of juice and bottled water so everyone help yourself!

Mom makes sure that every birdie has a sandwich and some juice or water to drink.

Everyone needs to stay hydrated now, I don't want any birdie fainting from heat stroke okay??

Oh sorry there's also some chips too, to go along with the sandwiches. She puts some on every birdies plate as she walks around.

One hour to the last half of the game, she shouts.

As in a few hours it will be dark.

Every birdie enjoys the lunch and talks about the game.

  Hi Kiddo
mom always does our blogging for us after we go to bed at night.last night while mom was playing with me before bedtime she noticed this sour smell coming from my mouth and nares. naturally mom panicked and first thought that came to her mind was sour crop which can be very dangerous. i of course was acting fine, maybe not playing as much as usual but sure wanting lots of head scritches. no loss of appetite cause mom gave me a cashew and i gobbled it right down. i did seem to be very thirsty so mom added a tiny amount of apple cider viinegar to my water and i drank quite a lot of it. mom was going to take me to the vet first thing in the morning but instead of doing our blogging she was doing research on sour crop. this morning when mom got up the sour smell had dissipated quite a bit but is still there. i am still eating and drinking and acting fine so mom will continue with the vinegar and see if the smell goes away completely.

mom had to run to the store for a few things and after coming home and bringing her packages inside she noticed 2 house wrens that seem to be tangled up in something who were making quite a ruckus. mom left her packages on the front porch and got a step stool from inside to stand on so she could reach the braanch. they had somehow gotten their legs caught in a birdhouse mom had stuffed with our doggies hair clippings from this spring. mom tried to pull the hair out with one hand while holding the birds with her other hand but she coudlnt pull the hair out. she then gently pulled the birds legs out of the hair. she doesn't know if all the hair was off the legs or if their legs were damaged but , man, did they ever fly way fast. mom then pulled out all the tightly packed doggie hair clippings from the bird house and threw it away.something else for mom to feel guilty about.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

Mom also made those energy bars for us to eat, it's in the baking pan.

Full of peanuts, peanut butter and raisins and granola for energy.

Also there's 2 pans of pineapple cake so help yourself.

Everyone grabs a juice box or a cup full of juice and sit in the shade and hydrate.

The boys sit with the boys and the girls sit with the girls going over their strategy.

Raffi says I dunno about you guys but them girls is strong players!

Yeah I agree says Dixie, who knew Little Angel had it in her!

The girls team discuss the boys too. Chyna says I think we can still win this one and Kacey agrees. We just hafta show more aggression !! Argggg!!

Hahahaha then all the girls start laughing and that peaks all the boys interest, what are they laughing about says Pookie.

Everyone rests up before continuing the next half of the volleyball game, boys versus girls.

  Hey Kiddo,
Well it's a sunny hot day of 81 degrees here in Hawaii.

Both teams are getting ready and start stretching and warming up for their game play and eyeing up the other team.

Kacey puts her wings to her eyes and then points to the boys team as if to say I've got my eye on you! Hehehehe

Mom says the game will end at 5 no matter who wins okay?

When I blow the whistle it's time, either a juice break or lunch break but two short whistles means the game is over. Both teams agree, good.

Pookie calls heads before Laka gets to say anything.

The coin falls and it's tails! Yay!! The girls team serves first.

Chyna serves the ball and it goes over to Gus who's in the middle and bumps it over to Pookie who sets it up for Chipper and he spikes it over to the dead spot and all the girls scramble to get it but unable to. Yay the guys all high four Chipper, way to go buddy!!

Kiddo is up serving and it goes over to Cori who bumps it up to Little Angel who sets it up for Laka and she spikes it over and Raffi dives into the sand for a save and hits it up to Dixie who volleys it over to BooBoo who bumps it up to Kacey who hits it over and lands by Mikey who bumps it over to Pookie who tries to spike it over but it hits the net.

Yay!! The girls team scream. Now it's Sugars turn to serve and she hits it so effortlessly over to Mario who bumps it up to Willie who sets it up for Kiddo who spikes it over and Laka dives in the sand to get the ball but Kiddos fast spike ball was too fast for her and sand flew all over as she dived for it.

Now Chipper serves and it goes over to Kacey who bumps it up to BooBoo who spikes it over to Gus and he dives in the sand and barely able to save the ball. Kiddo runs and bumps the ball back into play and Peepers volleys it over to Cori who bumps it up to Chyna who sets it up for Sugar and she spikes it over and lands in the dead spot. While all the boys try to dive for the ball they all end up in a dust of sand clouds with sand flying all over.

Yay Sugar!! All the girls yell and high four each other, good one !! :)

Now Cori serves and it goes over to Raffi and he bumps it up to Mikey who sets it up for Dixie who spikes it over to Little Angel who hits it but it goes out of bounds. Awwww the girls sigh.

Yay Dixie!! The boys all high four each other, good going Dixie!!

Mikey serves and it goes over to Kacey and she bumps it up to BooBoo who sets it up for Little Angel who spikes it over to the dead spot and all the boys rush to get up but end up in a cloud of dust. Yay Little Angel!! They all high four each other and she says in your face boys!

They hear the whistle and its a juice break and about time says Pookie as he's been sweatin' bullets out there.

They all run to the tent for some cold refreshing juice. Mom says there's pineapple, guava, lilikoi, orange, grape, apple and grapefruit juice so help yourself.

  Hello Kiddo~
I hope you are having a great day! We got to talk to dad this morning. He is in Iowa now and it's snowing there! He is at a truck stop and is going to stay there for the day. Truck drivers are only allowed to drive a certain amount of hours a day and if dad is on a road where there is an accident and he gets stuck, he will run out of hours. If he takes a break right now he gains more hours and won't have to worry about running out. He's on his way to Oklahoma. He actually told mom that the snow looked pretty! Dad usually hates snow!
We are getting things ready for mom to start her workweek tonight and for Ian who starts his tomorrow. Hopefully Black Friday won't be too crazy. Mom just hopes everyone has a good time.
We are so sorry to hear about your mom's friend and the hearing. The judge sounds like a jerk! Sound like he has made up his mind before hearing all the facts! Very sad! We hope things work out for her!
I hope your Thanksgiving is just perfect! I am thankful for your friendship and know how very blessed I am to have found such excellent friends here on the BC!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

That was one inconsiderate and rude judge. Sorry mom's hands don't look so good, remember they are the hands that feed you.
Daisy surprised mom with how well she did in class last night. She picked up things easily and practiced with mom and never tired out. The clicker training works!
BC is running so slow!
We all want to wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving in case we don't get online tomorrow. Mom is cooking and the bird is big, so we have to get up early to supervise.
It was supposed to flurry today, but it's been snowing since 9AM. There's no sign of a let up either. We are hoping everyone who is traveling this holiday gets to a destination safely.
Mom got her nails done this morning, and got her new driver's license. She kept looking outside while she was at the nail salon, hoping that the snow would stop, but no such luck.
Now that she's home, once she's done serving as our typist, she will bake pies, get the cranberry sauce ready, and do other little things so tomorrow goes smoothly. We are only having 10 people here, but it's still a chore to make sure all goes well. I hope you are having a good day, getting to taste test, or at least supervise, all the cooking that's going on. Make sure to get lots of scritches and cuddles today, too. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kiddo
It's Popeye.
Remember the talk we had, years ago, about biting the hand that feeds you?
Mom and dad were up and gone early yesterday. First they went to the Magnolia Bird Farm for our food. On the way there, their friend Bob called and they set up a time for dinner. Then mom and dad went to free movie day and saw "Dolphin Tale 2". It was a true story about an aquarium in Florida and how two dolphins got together. Great movie! Then they met Bob at home and decided to try Golden Corral again. this time they walked right in and were seated. As before, the food was great. By the time they got home it was time to tuck us in for the night.
Today will be clear, with a high of 86 and a low of 52. Mom and dad will be working on food for Thanksgiving. Mom's mom is coming over to use our kitchen to fix Thanksgiving food, also. Nothing in her kitchen works. Please don't get dad started on that subject.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Hi, Kiddo
Gee, sounds like the court hearing didn't go that well. The nerve of the judge to be so late and then suggest telmarketing? Who the heck make $$ at that? When the parronts see unknown numbers on the caller ID mostly don't answer and if they do (dad does it not mom) it is always a sales pitch of some sort. Then got stuck in traffic? Yikes!

Glad you got the sunbath and sure hope you don't bite your mom again.

Tis the season for our hormones! Dude, really, a travel mug? C'mon and love on your mom! The other day you were giving her food offerings. I know my frother Elvis had to be toweled to have his pin feathers done the other day otherwise mom would have no fingers left. How humiliating in that towel! So be a good boy and go and get that sun bath! We are eggspecting snow today and mom has an early dismissal from work hopefully because of Turkey Day, so we can get out of stir here! Mom usually keeps a computer file plus hard copy 5x7's in the kitchen--you know mom being anal retentive. But it makes it easier for her when preparing the things she doesn't do all the time like the Christmas eggnog! Yikes! A month away! Mom discovered that when she was putting an expiration date on a patient's rx. Never know where that time goes...that'w why it is important to spend it wisely with good friends. So take take a sun bath with your mamma! Love and winghugs, Teal'c

You did awesome yesterday and we are so proud of you and the way you played shoot the turkeys in the hoops.
You won 25 turkeys !!! Heehee...
Today my mommy's making lot's of pies for tomarrow.
She has to hide them from the skin sibs cause they will eat them all in one day.
Did your mommy's friend have a disability lawyer ??? If not he or she should call Bill Latour. He helped my mommy's friend win her case with no money down.
They take 10 percent of the back pay and from then on out no more payments and she has her monthly checks.
She had to appeal her case and found this Lawyer and won...
Is your mommy ready for Thanksgiving ??? I can't wait to sample the food. What about you ???

SNOW ! It's only Thanksgiving ! The forecast has been downgraded from yesterday at least - last night when mom tucked me in, they were calling for 12-18 inches, this morning it's only 8-12 ! I say that's still too much ! Mom is waiting to see if she'll have school - lots of districts around have already called it a day off, since it's only a half day anyway -

Later it'll be make the stuffing and chop up veges - pies are now done and in the fridge :) Yum, yum, yum :) What's up at your perch for the holiday ? Whatever it is, I sure do hope it's a happy one :) GO PILGRIMS !love Cookie

Thank you very much for letting Susan join my cheer team. She was so happy and did very well at practice tonight. Now, we can have a greyt pyramid (shhhh, don't tell anyone).
Why yes, you do look amazing. I hope to get sun on my feathers in January when in FL.
Whatever you do ... don't bite your mom. This is the holiday season and Santa Bird is watching.
This morning I woke to see the winter wonderland. Everything was white with lots of snow for dad to plow again ... hehehe. We got another 9 inches over night. Along with the cold, we will have daily snow starting on Thanksgiving morning. I have 2 new snow pics up for those who like it. I think I'll just go back to my perch for the day under the extra blankets.

OH KIDDO I AM SO SORRY THAT YOUR MOM'S FRIEND DIDN'T GET HER DISABILITY. WHAT KIND OF INJURY DID SHE HAVE? MOM NEVER THOUGHT SHE WOULD GET HERS BUTI GUESS THE DISABILITY DR THOUGHT OTHERWISE. MOM ONLY HAD TO WAIT 4 WEEKS WHEN SHE GOT HER APPROVAL.

THERE ARE SOME DR'S WHO THINK THAT YOU CAN GO SIT IN A CHAIR AND TALK ON THE PHONE ALL DAY OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. WELL WITH MOM SHE CAN'T SIT OFR LONG PERIODS OF TIME OR STAND FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME. EVEN LAYING IS NOT EASY. MOM THINKS THAT SOME OF THESE DR'S SHOULD HAVE A BAD INJURY AND SEE HOW WELL THEY CAN DO SIMPLE THINGS.

WE HAD A DECENT DAY HERE TODAY EVEN WITH THE TEMPS IN THE 30'S, THERE WAS NO WIND SO THAT HELPED A LOT. THE WEEKEND IS SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE 40'S.

TOMORROW THEY SAY WE MAY GET SOME SNOW LATE.

MOM HAS HER EPIDURAL TOMORROW AND MAY NOT BE BLOGGING TOMORROW. SHE WILL E-MAIL YOUR MOM TO LET HER KNOW HOW THINGS WENT. LAST TIME IT DID HURT FOR A DAY AND HALF.

I HOPE YOU AND YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE A WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING AND ENJOY YOUR DUCK FEAST.

I like what you and your sweet Momma were discussing about my Mom's sock issue at zumba class!She is always in the back of the class as she is so clutzy anyway and she will tolerate her sneakers for one or two more weeks and then she'll try the socks again.Mom was so happy wearing the socks and not having to be crammed in those sneakers where she can't move without looking like a clutz!
What a nasty judge to have said such a thing to your sweet Momma's friend like that!And to be an hour late on top of it all!If they did that to him he'd make them reschedule and come back at a later date!What a jerk!
It was really good that you got to get your sunbath today even if it was for half an hour!You are one handsome dude Kiddo,just look at those gleaming feathers on you!
Your poor Momma with those nasty bite marks having to wear them for longer than was expected!You do have quite the strong beak there and is it ever sharp!My baby fister is only a little pineapple GCC and only two years old and her beak can really hurt something big time!
Tell your sweet Momma to look in the mail on Friday as the package my Mom mailed out to her should be there then!
We all welcome Susan and Riley Ann as our cheerleaders and how awesome that C R Jake and RaneBeau will be our referees!We do have an awesome team already!
This morning was a fairly sunny day with temperatures in the 50's and it was warm considering how cold it was a few days ago.Mom got ready early and left to go to Nana's after she cleaned our cages and fed us our breakfast.Both Dixie and Mario had to stay home today as Mom was going down this end of town to complete her and Nana's Thanksgiving meal.Mom picked up Nana and they came back down to Hyannis and went to Trader Joe's and got some things,then they went to Joann's Fabric but didn't find anything there,then they went to Shaw's and both Nana and Mom got some things marked down and Mom paid her NStar bill there and then Mom went to the Post Office and then after that they headed back to Mashpee and went to Stop&Shop and got some things there and then to the nature food store,but Mom couldn't find any white millet for Mario there,then to Walgreen's,then back to Nana's where Nana made them some lunch of a salad with cranberries and zucchini on the side and toast.Then Mom came home around 4:30pm and as she was unpacking her car my dad came home and helped her finish unpacking while Mom came in and put the light on for us and fed and cleaned us out for the night.Then she made dad some dinner and now she is done with the dishes we are finally going to have Mom take our dictation so we can get our visits in!Mom had parked her car at Trader Joe's and when she came out her car was covered in seagull poop from top to bottom and now my dad has to clean that all off for her!

  Heya, Kiddo!
Well, we normally don't get snow this early, and usually not in November. Normally--what a funny word, as we normally don't have such frigid temps this early either. So guess it is not normal, but with all the global warming, nothing is normal now.

I have been very sweet today, and Mom is happy. I have been shredding paper like crazy. Mom told me I better not lay any surprise eggs. Ha! I told her that I was making a nice nest for her to lay an egg or three. I have no idea why she is laughing so hard she nearly fell off the chair!

Sucks about your Mom's friend. The people who deserve the disability have to give an arm and leg and three toes to actually get it. The ones who are not really disabled can get it in a heart beat. Irritates Mom to pieces. She hates that the ones who commit fraud, don't deserve disability, have an easier time getting it. The ones that really need it just can't. Grr. You tell your Mom's friend that she should keep at it. And that judge should just try telemarketing himself. Sitting down all day long, calling people? Yeah, great job. NOT.

Well, have to say that we are not sure if the BC is going to let us blog you or not. Super duper ultra slow. We sure did not like that Mom had to go to work today. She said the roads were meh, but around her job things were much nicer. She did go for a walk on the upper trail that overlooks the lake--it was cold, but the sun felt good. Not a lot of folks out there today. Lake was blue in the sun. No boats out there, though!

Some snow showers tomorrow. Mom is so looking foward to her two days off. I get my physical on Friday, and toenails and wings trimmed. Mom is putting up our little tree, too, and I sure am happy about that. I love my tree! She may or may not decorate it. She will put garland on it--last year she put on so much garland, it did not need any ornaments. I love the bright lights.

So you have taken up love biting with mom? I bet she doesn't appreciate that! I know mom is not impressed if Chicklet tries that sort of thing either, but she is usually a very good 'too.

I bet mom's friend was upset. That judge sounds terrible.

We got 5 inches of snow over night. It is the wet heavy kind so I am glad I am an indoor bird. Mom has to get more peanuts for the jays outside as they sure let her know she needs to put some out!

HOpe you have a good evening;)

hugs,

  Hi Kiddo
Good you still got some sun shine on your feathers and mom got home early enough to do so. Maybe the hormonal season is starting on you. Always nice to have cheerleaders on the team.
Today mom was home all day with me since the parronts went to the grocery store last night. Mom bought all she needed (and more) for Thanksgiving. Today she was chopping and dicing and every once in a while I would fly over to watch. Just when she would be really busy I would leave and throw the nuts out of the bowl on the coffee table though. That kept her busy too and after awhile she quit picking them up. She said she was glad there wasn’t many in the bowl and the bowl was small. Doesn’t matter cause I sure cant get those walnuts open no matter how hard I try! “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole stair case.“ Dropping a vote in your basket.

  Hi, Kiddo
Gosh, what has got into you? Hormonal? Poor mom and good thing the hot tea was in a travel mug so hopefully less hot stuff hit anything. Hope you are better behaved and not miss out on the sunbaths and spending time with your mom.

Glad that BC was able to return after only a day. We had only gotten to visit about half the birdies we wanted and then just squawking from then on.

Our Thanksgiving feast is later today. Gonna smell so wonderful here.

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

Another cheerleader is always welcome! We will love having Riley Ann join us. As for you, even if you don't like the mug, you love the hand that's holding it, so why bite?
Mom had fun at the wildlife center yesterday, she did the RVS animals again, which means she fed the bats. She loves doing that, they think they are so fierce, baring their teeth at her! She also did the raccoons outside, as well as the raccoon and ground hog inside.
Today we are going to make cornbread for the stuffing. I hope we all get a sample. If mom has the ambition, she will bake the pies, but she would prefer to wait until tomorrow so they will be fresher. Mom's daughter ordered a fresh local turkey which she will pick up after work and drop here on her way home.
Mom does have an errand today: she needs a 6 foot lead for Daisy's class tonight. She got the mat, the treats are ready, the clicker is in her pocket, but she doesn't have a small 6' leash. The one she has is really thick, too big for that little dog. I only hope she is able to teach that dog some manners! Mom has done her homework all week, so maybe there's a chance this dog will be better by the end of class.
I hope you are all having a good day. Don't forget to come by the Lakers page today to celebrate Thanksgiving with our team! Hugs, Falco

It's Popeye.
The BC was ok in the morning but quit in the afternoon.
Dad had to go and get a Life Scan yesterday. We all thought it had something to do with x-rays but dad said it was for electronic fingerprints. We didn't know that dad had electronic fingers? He said it was for the Police Dept. He had to go to Cal State Fullerton Police to have it done. There was something wrong with La Habra's machine. When he got there his form was the wrong one so dad had to get the correct one and go back. What a pain! The scan only took about five minutes but dad drove about 45 minutes total. Glad gas prices are still dropping.
Today is free movie day so you can guess where mom and dad will be.
Today will be clear, with a high of 80 and a low of 56.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

har har har ! I missed you ! Mom came home from the g'parronts on Sunday and couldn't get on . . . she did some baking instead. She got up yesterday morning hoping for the best ? . . . nope ! So she did some Christmas shopping in her jammies. We were so happy when she came home from school :)

I was home with daddy yesterday - at one point I started growling and growling. Daddy couldn't figure out what was the problem till he looked outside - there on the back deck snoozing under the chairs (which are covered in plastic for the winter) was a big ole' raccoon ! ! ! Dad made lots of noise and banged things until he lumbered off back into the woods ! Then he gave me a piece of kiwi for being such a good watchbird ! ! !

Have a good day my friend ! love Cookie watchbird !

GREYT! Thanks, I will let Susan know. Can you add them to the Milona page? I'm having a cheer practice at the Milonga page on Tuesday ... hope that is ok.

OH NO ... you were in lock down. I think the whole problem was those trucks picking up trash ... yes, it's their fault! Glad you did get outside.

Sorry every birdie ... couldn't get on the BC yesterday. We had 42 degrees with rain again today. It was nice to watch snow melt. We lost almost 1/3 of our snow. But, on Tuesday we will be back to 32 degrees with snow. I guess I have to put that extra blanket back on the perch tonight. How about sharing some hot chocolate with me? OOPS ... it's snowing already tonight!

  Hi Kiddo
give mom some time. i am sure she will forgive you. those bites really do hurt.

yesterday was quite a day for us. it was mom and dads 37anniversary and they were actually going to leave the house and go out for dinner. dad asked mom to trim Boo Boo's beak because he said the top was way to long and she couldn't eat properly with it. so long. when mom took a look she saw that Boo Boo had somehow broken the bottom half of my beak off and my top beak was about 3/4 of an inch longer. she wrapped Boo Boo in a tea towel and got a good grip of my head and held her beak together and started filing away with the emery board. she moved fast because she doesn't want to hold her in that position for very long. at one point she noticed blood on her hand and thought maybe i had bitten her so she stopped to checked and make sure Boo Boo was ok . here Boo Boos top beak had started to bleed where she filed it down. you have to realize mom always is working on our beak and nails and so was very surprised to see what had happened in the first place and in order for Boo Boos beak to fit properly she had to file it down to the right length which made it bleed. when mom saw the blood she became ill and thought she was going to vomit. she grabbed some flour and dipped her beak in it. then she uses a cloth and wiped the blood off, then she dipped her beak in flour again. at this point we suspected mom was putting batter on Boo Boo to eat her for dinner. mom was so upset she told dad no way was she going out for dinner when Boo Boosbeak had been bleeding. what if it started bleeding again while they were gone. dad said ok and went out and brought dinner hone from a nice local italian restaurant. that night mom let Boo Boo chase a live cricket around and she did catch it and ate it all up. i was fairly upset that Boo Boo got so much attention. mom gave me a cashew to cheer me up. Boo Boo is still mad at mom but acting a little better and eating with her beak. mom says withBoo Boos beak so short she really look like a baby bird now.
mom also says i am looking better and better and my beak is looking better and better also. i am keeping my weight at 474 grams which is good for me. mom says my eyes also have a sparkle to them which she hasn't seen for a few years.

How have you been? I haven't been on BC for a while so thought I would fly by:) We got some snow yesterday and today but not too bad. It is pretty mild out still. It was a good day for a snooze and head scritch. We are all geared up and excited for Christmas and I have been such a good boy this year too!

ITS SO GOOD TO BE BACK ON BC EVEN IF ITS SLOW.

I AM SO SORRY THAT YOU ARE IN LOCKDOWN. THOSE HORMONES CAN GET THE BEST OF ONE. HOPEFULLY IT WON'T LAST LONG. MALES ARE SO MUCH MORE AGGRESIVE WHEN HORMONAL. SO FAR MOM HASN'T HAD ANY OPROBLEMS WITH ME. DO BE GOOD TOMORROW SO YOU WILL NOT BE ON LOCKDOWN ONCE YOUR MOM COMES HOME. I KNOW YOU WILL WANT TO SHARE DINNER WITH HER.

WE HAD SNOW TODAY. WOKE UP TO A VERY WINDY DAY BLOWING SNOW ALL OVER. THE TEMPS DROPPED SO THE SNOW STAYED ON THE GRASS. DIDN'T QUITE MAKE AND INCH OF SNOW. THE TEMPS ARE GOING TO DROP TONIGHT CAUSING FREEZING. MOM IS HOME TO STAY.

MOM WENT TO THE GYM TODAY AS SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE WITH HER TRAINER BUT SHJE DIDN'T SHOW TILL 12 NOON WHEN SHE HAD HER OTHER APPT. SHE APOLOGIZED SO THEY RESCHEDULED FOR TOMORROW AT 2PM. MOM ONLY WORKED OUT FOR 40 MINS AND TOOK IT EASY AS SHE WASN'T UP TO WORKING OUT HARD. MOM DIDN'T EVEN GO ON THE TREADMILL. SHE ONLY ATE A SMALL BOWL OF CEREAL THIS MORNING. MOM'S STOMACH IS STILL A BIT SORE.

MOM SLEPT 12 HOURS LAST NIGHT. SHE WENT TO BED AT 10PM AND DIDN'T WAKE UP TILL 10 AM. SHE REALLY NEEDED THE SLEEP.

MOM SAYS SHE WILL STILL TAKE IT EASY TOMORROW.

Aww them different things cause us lots of grief eh? Yea was the tea mug that did it all but hopefully your mom will forgive and forget real soon and things will be back to normal again.
We couldn’t get on BC last night either. Hoping it stays on so we can get our blogs done now tonight. Sometimes at night after I am in bed and covered for the night I hear dad cracking nuts that sit on the coffee table. Sometimes in the day dad will crack one and give me some of it so he does share. I get on the coffee table and knock the bowl off the table and then check all the nuts out to see if I can get them open but never can do that with the walnuts. They are tough nuts! Mom buys almonds in the shell and some of them I can get open though but takes me a long time. “Sometimes I think “what is a friend?” and then I say a friend is some birdy to share the last treat with as I would share with you ” Leaving a vote for you.

  Heya, Kiddo!
Oh, I know...those time outs suck. I mean, those toes are way too tempting, and they are just sitting there on the floor. I don't understand why Mom chased me out of the bathroom like that, and put me on the playgym. Today I have been good as gold. Miss Mom when she goes to work, and am on my best behavior tonight. Nothing better than being curled up on Mom's shoulder.

We are officially in winter. I hate to say it, but our lovely (though dark and grey and rainy) temperatures are gone for good until spring. IT SNOWED today. Mom was less than thrilled. She took the city streets home tonight as she did not want to deal with the idiots on the expressway. It was not too bad, but as she got closer to home, you could see how the snow was much heavier. She dragged out the boots she bought--they are Skechers, and they are waterproof, insulated and make her feet look like gunboats. But they are comfy for walking as far as she has to from her parking structure. And she can't understand why these idiots don't clean off their cars/trucks if they are out in the snow. They turn on the windshield wipers and have that much visibility. Meanwhile, the snow on the roof of their car blows off and really makes the guy behind them suffer. UGH! Hate snow. We are up for 3-5 inches, so you know how not excited we are.

Glad to be back on the BC. Not sure how long it lasts, but at least I can vote for Miss Ruby and say hi to all of ya!

Kaji

  Hi Kiddo
I got my football pic yesterday and Mom was just getting ready to put it up in my gallery after she finished all our blogs when BC shut us all down!We were shut down by all the squawkatiels and run time errors and page 404 page not found by late morning yesterday.Mom was so frustrated and thought that if she could just log out and log back in again we'd be fine but that never happened either it made it worse and we couldn't get on at all!So it was a whole day and a whole night that we weren't on BC up until early this morning when we got back on later in the morning!
Mom was so disappointed that she now has to wear sneakers again to zumba.What a bummer big time that is for her,she loved those socks your sweet Momma sent her and she's gonna see if she can get away with it again in a while!My Mom would never sue the gym or Toni as she really likes her alot but it was so nice just to be able to enjoy dancing without tight shoes on and not looking so clutzy either!
Its a dark,dismal,dreary pouring rainy day here but the temperatures are warm at 64.Its not cold but having no sun and warm weather just doesn't cut it for us!Where is the bright sunshine?
Oh Kiddo!Why are you being so bad to your sweet Momma for?Its a good thing she didn't get burned as hot tea can really inflict some painful damage if it ever fell on her hand like that!You sound like my frother Kallie,he hates when Mom is on the phone and will attack the phone and her and he hates the camera and has come close to attacking that also!You're lucky she shared lunch with you and didn't make you stay in lockdown through that!
I was thinking of you getting your sunbath yesterday,it was such a nice sunny day here and not too bad in the way of it being warm outside,59 or so!I got to sit in my acrylic cage in the tv room and watch all the wild birds come and go and see the new bird house my daddy made for the wild birds!Its a beautiful four unit condo with four entrance holes made out of nice wood that won't crumple up or fall apart in a months time like all the other bird houses that my Mom has bought before!Mom is so happy that the wild birds will now have shelter from the winter weather,snow and ice again and she's so happy that she just might get to see them building their nests and having their babies in the spring like they always did in the bird house!Mom will send pics once the rain stops and its not so dark so you can see it!Mom is going to mail out the package to your wonderful Momma tomorrow when she goes on her errand run with Nana!She wants to get it in the mail and on its way to you before the holiday package rush begins!
I will miss you tomorrow when your sweet Momma is off taking her friend to court!I'm still hoping my Momma will be back in time for us to blog also!She has to be home before dark anyway because she hates driving in the dark!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  `Ü´ Greetings & A Lovely Monday to You
Mr Kiddo!

I do hope that your Saturday and Sunday were full of fun and productivity. I know in my case I had to relinquish Momma’s eggsclusive attention and assistance on my Campaign to be your December Bird of the Month to more pressing parrontal matters around our K Kritter Korral. (The portion of Sunday during which Momma was available to bring me to your page for a visit, the BirdChannel was not cooperating. You might say that their GPS was out of order! **TeeHee**)

You see, Momma and Daddy were informed that they could eggspect a visit from my Grandma from Idaho from later today, to last thru Thursday morning when they all gather at Daddy’s youngest brother’s home about an hour away from us for the first Family Celebration with everyone present since Momma and Daddy have known each other. Grandma was eager to be able to spend time here with Momma and Daddy, and all of us fids of course, before joining the rest of the family for a concurrent Celebration of Thanksgiving and her BirthDay on Thursday! Then she will remain with my Uncle and his family until she returns to her home in Idaho later in the week, while my other Uncle comes to pay us a visit over the long weekend.

So, all of this is to say that my visits may be a bit sporadic from now thru the end of the month, due to Grandma’s visit, the Holiday weekend with my Uncle visiting, and the upcoming Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl Game. I do apologize in advance for any visits I shall have to forego. But rest assured that I shall continue to do my utmost to bring you the maximum amount of FootBall information in the time we have left together.

And on that note, let us get straight to the information I’ve promised you next about the Offensive Squad on a FootBall team …


Let’s begin our eggsamination of the individual Positions on the Offensive Squad.

QuarterBack – The Player who usually receives the ball from the Center at the start of each play. He informs his TeamMates in the huddle of the play that will be run and then, after the Center snaps* the ball to him, either hands the ball to a Running Back or throws to a Receiver.

Center – The Player who hikes (or snaps) the ball to the QuarterBack at the start of each play. The term comes from the fact that this Player is flanked on either side by a Guard and a Tackle; he’s the “MiddleMan” (or Center) in a contingent of five Offensive LineMen or Blockers. He handles the ball on every play and also snaps the ball to the Punter and Holder.

Guard – There are two Guards on every play, and they line up on either side of the Offensive Center. The Guards protect the QuarterBack from an Inside Rusher; they block Defenders immediately across from them and also swing out, or pull**, and run toward either end [of the line] to block any Defender when the ball carrier runs wide°.

Come visit me, `Ü´ Ruby Coaches the Offense.

11/24/2014 09:42.56 AM Report This Comment  
  Tackle – Both Offensive and Defensive, on Offense they are Outside Blockers on the line of scrimmage°°.

Tight End – Serves as a BIG Receiver [Oh MY!] and also a Blocker. Unlike a Wide Receiver, this Player generally lines up beside the Offensive Tackle either to the right or to the left of the QuarterBack. (Also “Strong Side+”)

Wide Receiver – The Player who uses his speed and quickness to elude Defenders and catch the FootBall, but who isn’t primarily a Blocker. Wide Receivers are also known as “pass catchers” [but I-I-I would parrotsonally NOT disparage one so!]. Also called a WideOut.

Running Back – A Player who runs with the FootBall. Running Backs are also referred to as TailBacks and HalfBacks, depending on their exact responsibilities and alignment.

FullBack – A Player who lines up in the Offensive backfield++ and generally is responsible for blocking for the Running Back and pass-blocking to protect the QuarterBack. FullBacks also serve as short-yardage runners.


I would also like to call your attention to a display of several of the basic Offensive Formations which appear in the Gallery at the bottom of my page. (They also appear in my Profile Picture at the top of my page; but they are much clearer and contain eggsplanatory text in the photos in the Gallery.) I hope these are of use to you in recognizing some of what happens on the actual field of play the next time you watch a FootBall Game.

I am also including several definitions of terms used in the above Position Descriptions at the end of this note.

Have a Greyt Day! Perhaps enjoy watching The Jets play The Bills at 7:00 pm on CBS, or The Ravens play at The Saints at 8:30 pm on ESPN. Both times are EST. Remember, it is virtually illegal to watch a FootBall Game quietly. So do what we Avians are most well-known for doing … **S*Q*U*A*W*K** . **I*T** . **U*P** ! ! !

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


*snap—the action in which the ball in handed or hiked by the Center to the QuarterBack, to the Holder on a kick attempt, or to the Punter.
**pull—when a player leaves one area of the field, generally moving back and then over, to block in an area other than his normal position.
°run wide
°°line of scrimmage—the imaginary boundary between the two teams prior to the snap of the ball. The Offense’s and Defense’s scrimmage lines are defined by the tip of the ball closest to them and stretch from sideline to sideline. The Defensive Team usually lines up less than a yard away from where the ball is placed.
+strong side—the side of the Offensive formation where the Tight End aligns. With a right-handed QuarterBack, the strong side is usually to his right side.
++backfield—the group of Offensive Players (the Running Backs and QuarterBack) who line up behind the line of scrimmage (vs the Offensive LineMen and/or Receivers who line up at the line of scrimmage).

  Hi, Kiddo
Only very low 60s here but didn't really rain more. Few sprinkles and was sunny by afternoon.

The parronts got all the supplies for Thanksgiving. Mom'll be prepping stuff between our blogs so everything will be ready to cook/bake on Tue. As to that duck in your fridge, think you are fine since while they are birds they aren't parrots. Gotta be a distinction, right?

Uh, oh, messing with that antique dresser again? Hopefully you calmed down in order to resume dictating from a knee or shoulder. So much easier than screeching from your room.

Really does look like we will arrive at the football Milonga early since mom got switched to those overnight shifts. We know it'll be an awesome game. Great football pic! Saw Jenny's too, also great.

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

  Hi Kiddo
It's Popeye.
Mom and dad were going to stay home all day, yesterday. Then mom got the idea of roasting some tomatoes and other veggies and making tomato soup. Dad had to go to Smart and Final for some veggies but he came right home. Then they both left for some big sale at mom's favorite jewelry store. She said that she wasn't going to buy anything. WRONG!! We all noticed new earrings on her ears. Good thing we don't sit on her shoulders cuz we'd have them all chewed up in no time. They brought Subway sandwiches home for dinner. We did get to sample some of them. YUM!
Today will be clear, with a high of 75 and a low of 53. No telling what mom and dad will be doing today.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye
