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 for Zeena #255116 for BOTM!!!

I am a Senegal Parrot from Simi Valley, CA.

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


12 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
It's Popeye.
We think the wild parrots have moved on. Yesterday we only heard a couple and this morning there are none around. We so wanted them to stay but it seems that we were just a stopover. Dad did take pictures of them and will post them soon.
Mom and dad went to the movies yesterday and saw Million dollar Arm. It was a true story and very good. Then they went shopping for just one item at Walmart but came out with a huge, full bag. If dad went in by himself he would have just bought the one item. But, because mom went in with him, she bought out the whole store. It seems that our Walmart has a great grocery section, with cheap prices.
After shopping, mom and dad went to a restaurant in Brea for a special coupon dinner. They said it was good. Must have been, because there was NO birdy bag.
Today is concerts in the park day. This week it's a country group that dad wants to see. I hope this is the right day for them.
Today will be clear and hot, with a high of 96 and a low of 67.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Hi Kiddo
That's good, 16 riders should mean just 4 heats again. It gets too unwieldy and drags on if there are too many. I might be interested in running a booth, if you have any available. Maybe one where you toss darts at balloons, or a ring toss booth?
Mom made a recommendation to readers in the BC Library (Cookie's page), if anyone likes thrillers/mysteries.
Dinner last night was good, the groupon was for a local Japanese restaurant, but not traditional Japanese, one of those places that puts on a show of cooking on the hibachi. It's called Saga, and the chef came out and cooked in front of mom and her sis. They shared a sushi roll for appetizers, and her sister had a tempura banana for dessert. Mom was much too stuffed to have any dessert, though. Plus, a fried banana didn't sound appealing.
Mom has her mammogram and bone density appointment today. There is a women's imaging center that does both at the same site, so that's where she'll go. They are predicting rain today, but if the walk with the dogs this morning is any indication, it will be another bright sunny day, so pool time again!
I hope you are having a bright sunshiney day with lots of hugs. Hugs from me too, Falco

  Hello Kiddo
This is, as she puts it, her weekend in the hole. Meaning she has to work. she will see if she can get on line from work if it's not too busy. sometimes the weekends are so slow, other times so busy she doesn't even get time to stop for coffee, or to grab a snack.

  Hi, Kiddo
Actually think it good that mornings are cool as at least then can have part of the day without feeling hot. We actually got a tiny bit of rain yesterday morning. Think it lasted about two minutes, just enough to wet the car and road for mom to go to work.

We finally go over to the Milonga page to put in our request. Know it'll be a fun, fun time, but can't forget to attend this month's Milonga. Can't wait to see the new riders with their pigs.

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

V4U today. We finally saw our first hummingbird last weekend, and we've been seeing the same hummingbird every day since. We only see one so far, but maybe there are more. The mockingbird babies are getting so big. They scamper in and out of the bushes. Wishing you a nice day. From, Mayo

It was a hot, humid and windy day. So why was I surprised that the power went out tonight? I need my beauty sleep ... I'm turning 4 on Wednesday! It finally came on at 12:40am. Now to catch up. Hey, it's Wednesday .... do I get my presents now mom?

  Hi Kiddo,
what a good boy you were and getting two nutriberries that was awesome!

It was warm and humid here today with some rain spatterings...tomorrow we might get some thunder and lightening...

Mom got all of dad's racing paperwork done and copied and sent off. Hopefully, dad will here something back from them before the next race...it is a month away so we should get his license before then.

I think we should do the face painting...do you think Denise would do that but if not...I can try...won't be as good as her's unfortunately...

That's great you are climbing into your carrier more and more often having fun toys in there sure helps.

I sure can understand how hard it must've been for your sweet Momma to be working on the Milonga and how long it must've taken to get it all in order!Both you and she are so amazing and you just don't know how much we appreciate you both doing this for all of us to have a greyt time and a place to have some fun and enjoy each others company!
Oh,Kiddo,I'm sooo proud of you for going into that sun carrier all by yourself now,see?I told you you would love being outside and that is the only way to go!
Today was a really hot day and it got into the 80's and was really humid.Mom worked on cleaning the bathrooms and the bedroom and got rid of more junk.Then she went downstairs and made grapefruit juice from the grapefruits she had in the fridge,then she cut up some broccoli and we all got to have some,my baby fister Candida sure did love it and actually ate it!My Dad was out all day in the hot sun painting the trim on the house and by the end of the day he was red as a lobster!Mom wouldn't take us outside til late in the afternoon because it was way too hot on the deck!We got to have several soaking showers and even got to join Mom and dad for dinner on the deck.Dad put the a/c on for Mom as soon as dinner was done so Mom could do our blogs without slipping off her chair!It will be a cage day for all of us tomorrow as Mom will be gone all day first to the gym for Zumba and then to run errands with Nana and skin sis.Dad will be home with us but he will be outside painting again and we won't see much of him.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs,Loving you always and forever,and I love you the mostest too!Dixie

  Heya, Kiddo!
Okay, so you turned up yesterday in Zeena's blog pictures! That was pretty cool, too, but so sad to hear of how our flockily has been so affected in Africa. Wow. So much stuff that hurts us birdies...and ultimately, everything on this planet.

I signed up for the face painting if we will have it, and if not, the pie eating contest. You know me and pie....

Woo...we were toasty today! It got to 88 degrees, but the humidity was super high, so it felt warmer. The nice part was that it was kinda windy where Mom works, so that helped cut the heat from feeling as warm as it was. Mom did get a walk in though after lunch--she said there were not many sailboats out on the lake today. Guess people are working or something. It was a good day though, and the time pretty much flew by. I don't know anything about time flying, do you? I don't see it. Do you?

Hoppy Tooooosday!

The milongas are always so nice and know they are lots of work and appreciate all you all do to make it happen too!
Well dad got the mailbox today but the one with the flag (to tell you that the mail man went) that mom wanted is no longer being made. Mom painted the names and number on the box and then helped dad get it on. Mom had me in the outside cage and I kept yelling real loud to the parronts and mom kept yelling back to me. It was very hot and humid today so I didn’t stay out long and tomorrow looks like rain so doubt I get out then either. ”Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward”.

  Hi Mr Kiddo
Hello my dear friends. Thank you all for the lovely words of encouragement and your faithful daily votes. i hope you are enjoying viewing a few very rare and uncommon Parrots and birds. All the birds I have discussed are species that are kept in captivity. Some we will not see, or won't see available for a long time due to their rarity.
Today we will stop by to visit some very common friends, in some very interesting and striking colors. Momma Deb has raised many Green Cheeked Conures in her lifetime but none like those we will see today. Many are only available to breeders at this time due to their difficulty in reproducing their colors. I hope you will enjoy what you see.
Momma Deb and I tried to locate the current price of many of these beauties and have listed them here, just for your information sake--

American Dilutes--$2000.00 US a pair and up
American Dilutes yellow-sided---$ 3800 to 6000Us a pair
Red-Faced Yellow-sided----$2500 to 7000.US a pair
Sun Cheek -------$ 4500 to 8500US a pair
Moon Cheeks---$7000Us and up for good stock
Mint-----$5000 to 10,000US a pair
Turquoise---$500 US a pair and up
Cinnamon Turquoise---$750 US and up a pair
Recessive Pied-----$4000 to 8000US a pair and up
Red-Factored Pineapples--$300US and up per pair
Dilute Moon Cheeks---$7000US and up per pair

There are by far not all the new and shocking color mutations available but will give you a good idea of what has been hatching in Green Cheeked Conure nest boxes lately.

Habitat:
Seen in dense, low forests and woodlands. Also in moist, mossy cloud forest on E Andes where seen up to 2900m (9512 ft).

Threat Summary:
Probably declining in E Bolivia because of rapid forest clearance. They are found on CITES
Appendix II. There are flocks living in both Florida and California which can be seen in company of the wild Amazon Parrots.

It's Popeye.
We have new neighbors. A huge flock of Mexican Red Headed Amazons have taken up residence in the tall trees around our house. There must be over 100 of them. You sure can tell when they arrive. Talk about noise! The other evening dad went out and took pictures of them. They haven't visited our backyard feeder yet but dad's hoping they will.
Yesterday, while mom was at the police station, dad vacuumed all the floors and carpets and by the time he was finished it was time to pick mom up. When they got home dad fixed bunless hamburgers. This time there was hardly any smoke but the burgers sure did smell good.
Today is free movie day so mom and dad will be gone for a while but we're hoping they will be home after the movie. We hate Lockdown.
Today will be clear and hot, with a high of 90 and a low of 65.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

I'm with you on that one, I don't like anything other than apples and grapes myself. And not just any apples or grapes either! They must be gala or fuji apples and red seedless grapes or they won't be touched.
It is a gorgeous day today! I think it's the best one of the week. Tomorrow we're supposed to get thunderstorms again. Usually by this time in July the grass is brown and dry, but everyone has green grass still. Mom has some grocery shopping to do, but it can wait. She needs to buy fresh fruits and veggies, but we have enough to tide us over for a few days. Today is definitely a pool day, and tonight mom and her sister will go to a Japanese restaurant for dinner. Mom bought a groupon a few weeks ago and wants to use it before it expires. Tonight will also be cage cleaning night, so we all have to be prepared to fix up our homes as soon as mom is done destroying them.
I hope you are having a bright and beautiful sunny day and getting lots of attention that you deserve. Hugs, Falco

Hmmm, don't the sun rays still give some benefit even if there is cloud cover? Still, glad you got out for a lil while and how awesome you chose to stay and play in the carrier even after coming back inside.

Are you sure you don't like peach? Think you need to reject it more than once to say definitively you don't like it. Although means more for your mom!

mom weighed me today and i have gained a lot of weight. mom is very upset. how can you gain weight eating veggies? i only get 2 tablespoons of pellets a day and a small piece of walnut for breakfast.

a warm muggy day here. the cold temps left. mom thought it was going to rain so she cleaned out the kitchen cabinets and scrubbed the kitchen floor. everything was filthy.
as long as mom wears her brace everything is fine.SO FAR. at least the pain has now stopped shooting down moms leg

Have you tried going to a boat store for a chair with wood arms? My parronts got theirs at a boat store (it was really a lawn chair for boats). They kept them and use them all the time, very sturdy.
I can't believe that you played in your carrier ... way to go! I'm so proud of you.
Tonight we had BBQ chicken ... yummy.
Today, mom got another recall on her car ... second time in a month. Then, we heard the loggers behind our property. Hope they aren't clear cutting again.
I'm loving this summer weather and patio time! I wish it would last for ever. I'm getting very eggcited for Wednesday, hope I get some new toys!

Glad your mom was able to find a new chair if she didn't I was going to suggest menards.
Really heated up here tomorrow could be the warmest and most humid day we have had this year good thing it's my mom's day off. Then Wednesday will already feel 25 degrees cooler thank goodness we aren't getting long stretches of that humid stuff.

  Hi Kiddo
Nice you like your carrier now and sure is lots of fun when you can go outside a bit. I went out today but its going to be 90 tomorrow and very humid so doubt I get out there then.
I have been going to bed a bit earlier then I was before so guess the days are getting shorter mom says. Last night I just got on my perch to wait for mom to cover me for the night and the dog next door started to bark. If I wasn’t so tired I would of gotten up on that windowsill and barked back at him like I do in the day time when he is out. Finally he must of went in the house and I gave mom a kiss good night and she covered me for the night. ”Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward”. Leaving a vote for you!! Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Come visit me, Gus --Chi chi ♥ RIP & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  Heya, Kiddo!
Yeah, for someone who hated that carrier, it is great to hear that you are liking it a whole lot now! And what did you think about us Pois being missing from areas we always inhabited? Wow, that was one eye opener from Miss Zeena today. As usual, man's destructive nature is the cause of so much badness in the world. Mom could go on and on but she is gonna curb it.

We are due up for hot and humid tomorrow. Mom says she will probably wear a skirt, as pants are way too warm to wear to work! She wishes they would let them wear capri's or cropped pants, but they don't. Sheesh! At least they don't make women wear any panty hose or stockings. It was lovely here today, with a wonderful breeze and not as humid as they predicted. Would be lovely if things are nicer tomorrow, but at least one day was hot and NOT humid!

Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Kiddo
It was another busy day for Mom even though she was home with us all day,while my dad was outside scraping paint on the trim of the house so he could paint it with fresh purple paint that my Mom bought a month or two ago! Mom was going through more stuff to take to the donation places and to the dump and recycling places.It was a cloudy,on the cool side day but yet humid if you were out side working!It was 72 degrees and the sun never came out until 4:30 this afternoon.Mom decided that as she was waiting for dinner to heat up she would take us all out on the deck to get some sunshine as we haven't been outside for several days.It was good to be able to watch all the wild birds come and go all around us!
The mud room isn't very big its just that skin sis has eons of stuff packed in there,there's a big metal closet which takes up half the wall on one side and it has everything in it from clothes to whatever else she has stored in there and there's another large cabinet that came from the kitchen that has all her other clothes in it along with boxes of stuff on top of that cabinet and boxes of stuff on the floor of the big metal closet and on the floor in front of both cabinets!And don't ask about the top of the closet!Skin sis cleans out the stuff here and leaves the junk to be hauled for mom when she has a dumpster right in front of her apartment just a few steps away!Skin bro came last week and filled his monster truck with the stuff she pulled out on that day but when he's not here its up to Mom to haul it off!
Mom will be home for one more day before she goes to Zumba on Wednesday morning and then her errand runs with Nana and skin sis so I'm taking advantage of every moment that I can!At least my dad will be here all week so we won't be totally alone while Mom is gone all day!
Now see how much fun that carrier can hold for you?It took you long enough to get the hang of it,now you just gotta get the hang of having the water bottle in your cage,or maybe you would prefer it to be hung from the outside?Mom started us off with it being hung from the outside first,maybe that will help you to get used to it and not so afraid of it!Just the spout coming inside your cage won't be so evasive for you then and you can test the spout out without any fears!Mom would also string some spaghetti around the spout of the bottle so we had to eat the spaghetti and touch our beaks to the spout then she got the pasta closer to where the water comes out so we had no choice but to get the pasta along with some water!She took our water bowls out for a day and kept an eye on us to make sure we weren't in any danger of thirst but you're a smart birdie and will go to the spout and get a drink like we did and once you do you won't go back!
I'm so glad that you got to get outside today and get some sunshine even if it was for a short time!We all just love grilled fruit and grilled peaches are just sooo good!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

  Hi Kiddo
Hello everybirdie, Zeena here to start this week with one of the worlds most well known Parrots. Today we stop to visit the Senegal Parrots and their mutations. I wish to thank you all for your greyt support and daily votes in my quest to earn the Title of Bird of the Month for August.
Over the last 30 years as many as 3 million wild Senegal parrots have been removed from the wild – 811,408 CITES Export permits have been issued since 1975. Unregulated trade in African parrots peaked in the 1980s and ’90s, and still exists today. This lucrative black market industry is fueled by profiteering middlemen who exploit wild bird populations. In 2005, the Senegal parrot was the most traded bird on the CITES Appendix II, with an average of over 45,000 individuals being removed from the wild each year. Today, African parrots remain among the most traded species on earth.
The Poicephalus parrots, including Senegals, Red-bellied and Myers etc are among the hardiest parrots on earth being able to survive in the harsh, African subtropics. All of their ranges are under serious pressure from the booming charcoal industry, out-of-control commercial logging , burning by local people for pastures and agriculture, as well as climate change. Deforestation rates on the continent are now twice that of the rest of the world. Africa has lost one half of its old-growth forests and forest restoration has become absolutely essential to save endemic forest bird species.
Long-lived forest specialists like Senegal parrots and rose-ringed parakeets are particularly sensitive to forest degradation. The added pressure of the wild-caught bird trade is often catastrophic, resulting in local extinctions in many Africa countries. Meyer’s parrots have all but disappeared from South Africa, African grey parrots are no longer seen in Kenya or Tanzania, Ruppell’s parrot and the brown-headed parrot have disappeared from much of their ranges in Namibia and Mozambique respectively, and the Cape parrot is only found in small forest refuges in the high mountains. Anyone who has traveled by road in Africa will tell you that every time you are in or near a forest you will start seeing parrots in cages or with their feet tied up on the roadside. Africa is exporting its parrots, its wildlife, its birdlife, its natural heritage,at alarming rates.
The Senegal Parrot is now extinct in many of it's ranges. The only way to stop this trade in wild-caught Parrots is to refuse to purchase birds that are not born in captivity.
Many devoted Senegal breeders have been working with a few unique mutations that have appeared in nestboxes starting in the early 1990's. These rare and beautiful mutations are still expensive and normally available only to other breeders, they include the yellow, pied, opaline, dilute and cinnamon. Regardless of color Senegal Parrots will remain one of the most common family pet birds kept the world over.

  Hi Kiddo
Mom should have carried her camera on Saturday, but didn't. She doesn't get out there often, but if she does go again this summer she'll snap a pic of the bench.
Just a quick note today to let you know we're thinking of you. Mom cleaned the skunks, foxes, groundhogs, and coyotes today, all outdoors, and very muggy, so she was happy to get to the pool. We need her tonight, though, so we're making her hurry up with our blogs. Hope you are having a wonderful summer day with lots of love coming your way. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Kaji, TiPaul, and Sky for 10k!, Peppino, In Divo's memory & Falco, Mikey and Chipper for 10k.

  Hi Kiddo
It's Popeye.
Dad is waiting for Social Security payday so he can buy the clear sealer he needs to finish the bench. Then, it should be done in a few days. It looks nice, with the dark red mahogany finish.
Last night dad tried the charcoal side of the new grill. Holy cow! There was so much smoke that you would have thought the house was burning down. Dad had to open the garage door to get all the smoke out of the breezeway. The Charcoal got hot enough to cook on in no time at all and dad grilled chicken thighs. Mom made a marinade with fresh lemons, fresh garlic, thyme, cumin and fresh ground pepper. Boy did it smell good. Dad hadn't cooked with charcoal in over ten years but he did a good job. The chicken was cooked perfectly and tasted "Out of this world". We were already in our sleep mode for the night but we'll get to try the leftovers. The charcoal stayed hot forever. Dad went out at 10pm to check his lights and it was still too hot to dump the coals. Dad learned from his last job that coals can stay hot for 24 hours.
Dad also installed a window fan in the garage. Mom thought he was crazy. In the summer the garage stays hot forever. The fan will help cool it down so dad can work. Oh, aren't all humans crazy?
Mom may work at the police station today. Dad wants to clean up the work bench in the garage. It looks like his tool box threw up on it.
Today will be clear, with a high of 85 and a low of 63.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye.
