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

Hi! My name is Kiddo loves SweetPepper!

I am a Senegal Parrot from Simi Valley, CA.

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


14 years old   M

Senegal Parrot

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Prayers for dad ! love Cookie

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

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

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

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

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

Here's a vote for you.

Hugs,

Laka

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This may very well be our last love note to you and aunt Pam, please know you have always been very loved! It is another nice day for us, it will be in the low-eighties for the next several days, with tolerable humidity! I guess you could say we are kind of waiting for the ax to fall on our beloved BC, it really hurts! We are starting to get more used to the YP pages, but it is still confusing for us!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wing hugs coming atcha!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Enjoy your day and stay cool ! love you ! Cookie

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wing hugs coming atcha!
Your buddy,
Kaji ♥

  Hi Kiddo
yes the milonga worked pretty good on FB but mom couldnt find the latest blogs and kept getting confused on that. Mom is old and doesnt learn new things with computers very well LOL.
Some birdy said BC is suppose to be here till the 26 but I don’t remember who said that. If that is the case then we have a few more days to blog.
Today was really hot and humid again. Mom did go to see the grands a bit this morning but that was it and once she came back home she was in the house where the AC hasn’t quit running almost all day. Of course I didn’t go out for a sunbath either. Mom had thought of taking me out this morning for a bit but it was even too hot then too. I guess this beats snow though LOL.

  Morning Milonga King-love from Jenny Lynn
We had almost resigned ourselves to thinking our BC would shut us down today, but here we are once again, chatting with all our BC friends that have not pulled their pages! We are predicted to have at least 2 more days of brutal heat and humidity, but many of you already know all about this awful heat wave we are stuck in! We are going to try to make to FB for our BC Milonga, but most likely not stay for long! We have a minimal clean-up day planned but mostly a play with the parrot day, Jenny is being very chatty today! Happy Saturday love to you and all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow, one way or another...

Forever love from Jenny, daddy Chuck, & the Dallas flock

  hi Kiddo and aunt Pam
I'm thinking we'll be here at least through the weekend - techies don't work ! I only wish so many friends hadn't pulled their pages so prematurely :(

It's still HOT here ! At 4:00ish already 80 - and heading up ! In fact, it's supposed to be the hottest day of the year so far - I think mom and dad will wait to go see the g'parronts till tomorrow - mom is reluctant to leave me in this.

Mom is on a hunt for new sneakers - and you'd think she'd have no trouble ? Noooooo . . . she's about the pickiest human there is ! She doesn't want big and clunky and too athletic looking, but she needs the support cause she and daddy do try to walk each day . . .

Have a good day dear friends, stay cool :) love Cookie

  Heya, Kiddo!
Sure do hope that your Dad is feeling better...whenever we hear he is sick, we get nervous. Know your Mom is watching him though so that is good.

The newspaper saga continues: Mom went to get her paper for today, Friday, and what they delivered: another Wednesday one. No Friday. So Mom called again--she said she cannot believe she is calling them 3 days in a row!--and is hoping to get her paper tomorrow and Sunday. She is very unhappy that they cannot get a delivery that has been the same for 10+ years actually delivered.

So much for Mom getting out of the house early--she overslept! But she did get out to pick up her prescription and did make it Meijer for another Honey Rock melon and other stuff for us both (pluots, nectarines, grapes, watermelon with seeds--mine! all mine!). She said there was a breeze and the humidity/dew point was not too bad. But it is 80 now, with dew at 70 and humidity at 84, nearly 10PM. Thick air! The bad part is that it is supposed to be like this again tomorrow and she says I may not be going to see Paula as it is just too hot. They are predicting higher than average temps thru the next three months. We love the heat, hate the damp!

Cya at the Milonga tomorrow on FB.

  Hi Kiddo
I am glad that mom didnt have the heart to delete my page on BC too. Hope dad feels better soon!
Its amazing to come on BC and its still here…but we love that fact too! Now we can blog with our friends a bit longer.
Today sure was a hot and humid day though we did get a storm this morning but the weather guesser says the hot humid weather is going to stick around a few more days at least. It was too hot for a sunbath and would need to get out early in the morning and then it might be cool enough.
Mom decided she was going to make zucchini lasagna since skin sis gave her some zucchini. She didn’t have enough cheese so had to go to the store this morning. Of course she came back with lots of other stuff too. She no more got home and the rain and storm came. Mom worked on the zucchini lasagna this afternoon and then had it for dinner tonight. There is some left so lots of work but two meals out of it is good.

  ere she put Dixie and Candida in their cages there and they spent the day in the sunroom while Mom and Nana ran their errands.Nana made them some tea and a waffle for breakfast and then they went out to the dump and recycling,from there they went to the bank for Nana,from there they went to get gas in Mom's car the going price was $2.21 but Mom used her gas points and got it for $2.11/gal.Mom had to circle around three times just to get a spot that was opened.After Mom pumped her gas she went to Stop&Shop where both she and Nana got some good markdowns and Mom bought a jar of orange marmalade to make skin bro's sandwiches with.He wants Mom to make him sandwiches for work.They went home to Nana's from there and while Mom unpacked the car Nana made lunch for them,salad and a stuffed pepper and toast.While Nana was getting that ready,Mom made skin bro's sandwiches and got them all done and ready to go.Nana made Dixie,Candida,Bella and Trixie some fruit snack and then after everyone ate,Mom packed up everything and got Dixie and Candida back in their harnesses and tethered them to the carseat and left to go home close to 4:00pm.It took Mom almost an hour to get home.Dad unpacked the car while Mom put everything away and got dad's dinner and Candida and Dixie settled back in their cages.Mom and dad ate dinner out on the deck and we got to join them.It was so windy that dad finally had to shut the umbrella as it was really moving the table and Dixie!Mom did the dishes and then she is now finally getting to get our notes out!When dad got home from work he put the A/C's in the TV room for Mom so she wouldn't slip off her computer chair and the one upstairs in their bedroom so it will be a nice night here without sweating!It was so hot here that dad finally caved and got the A/C's running.And it's getting hotter tomorrow and next week.
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
So far we've been getting notes from YouPet in our inbox but none of them have been from you,Mom and I will definitely go and check out your site as Mom and I have your page number there,I really miss not getting notes from you!Its so good that BC is still here but we can never count on it that it will be here by the morning!
Dad is going to take Mom up to the shipping store in the Mills early tomorrow morning!We are going to get that cereal right out to you and hopefully it won't take long to get there from here.We are on the other side of the world from each other and that makes me and my Mom so sad!My dad said the same thing about the shipping costs going to be expensive,but as long as Aunt Pam wants it anyway we'll send it out to you!Skin sis is having another case of it brought in to save for her to pick up and as soon as you tell me you want it I'll have her bring it home to my Mom so she can get it ready to ship out to you,Skin sis told them she wanted all that they had and they're going to get it out to her.Mom wants to make sure that you get this shipment safely and intact first and will wait for you and Aunt Pam to tell Mom you want the next case!I so agree with you that those other cereals are too big for us to hold and they also are too soggy in milk.Cheerio's are the right size for us and for me as I can't hold anything in my toes anymore?Mom has to hold it for me so I can bite into it.My fister Candida just loves peanut butter cheerio's and she won't eat any other cereal.My Mom does the same thing with our cereal here,puts it in a Tupperware cereal holder container!I think that Aunt Pam would look so awesome with the little bits of cereal stuck all over the poop towel!And I know that with that beak of yours the pieces you carve out of the cereal a quite well designed!
I can't believe that every birdie jumped ship and abandoned BC.I couldn't do it,delete all the years we've been here,all the memories,all our friends and family!I agree with you that its so sad that its just the few of us that are sticking around now.
That's awesome that you're being a good boy and not trying to go after that antique drawer.It just has to be so much fun sitting on Aunt Pam's knee while you dictate your notes to her!Please give your poor Daddy a wing hug from me to help make him feel better!We got out on the deck when Mom came home to dine with Mom and dad for about an hour or so.Its gotten hot here now.
This morning was a hot sunny morning with the highs for the day of 83 the lows of 71 and right now at 6:30pm its 82 and the wind is whipping out side.As soon as Mom got dad off to work,she got all the trash and recyclables loaded in her car and then came in and cleaned our cages,swept the floor in our room and then took our birdie trash out to the car.Then she harnessed Dixie and Candida and got them in the carseat and they took off to Nana's.The traffic was slow going,bumper to bumper and it took Mom a good hour to get to Nana's.When Mom got th

  Hi ya Kiddo~
Hope the day is going well. I'm lurking around BC and noticing how quiet it is. Guess it's sort of anticlimactic now that it's gone on for 4 days. I'll still be here til the end just to see what happens.
Got dark and cloudy here. We had tons of rain this morning. Everyone else is sweltering and we're all wearing out hoodies!
Pretty boring day actually. Mom sat with McKenzie on the sofa for about an hour. She put the warm compress on the belly and played with McKenzie's toys! I should say what is left of McKenzie's toys cause she seems determined to rip every single one to pieces! Mom is going to have to find more for her!! Perhaps that was her evil plan all along!!
Enjoy the day!

  Hi Kiddo !
Yup ! Hot, hot, hot has gripped us on the east coast too now - 92 yesterday, 94 today, hotter tomorrow - who knows what the "feels like" temps will be. Good day to stay in and play with mom :)

At least I have things to look at out my window - the supermarket down the road is having their parking lot repaved and there are lots of trucks to yell at . . . and today is yard work day in my development so there'll be more guys around to have to keep an eye on . . .

Well, I'm out of peppers and mom and dad had the nerve to LAUGH when they saw me looking in my treat dish for them last night ! I tossed everything aside, then dragged the dish out of its holder and threw it on the floor at mom's feet ! I sure hope my order gets here soon ! ! This is just so not fair ! !

Stay cool . . . love you !

  Hi Kiddo
I'm so psyched that we are still surviving that I too hope that the tech who's sick will stay out much longer to make sure he's all healed!
I love being here on BC being able to visit whoever birdie is left here as its now a ghost town.
I will try and make it over to your diary at YP,if I can navigate it there!
Oh are we ever cereal brothers and my skin sis will make sure no one takes our cereal away from us and will get every box they have left on their shelves for us!
This morning was another bright warm sunny day.Our highs for the day will be 83 with the lows of 64 and its 81 right now.Mom got us all up after she got dad off to work and then collected the recyclables to put in the car for tomorrows dump run and then collected the trash and got that out in the garage trash bucket.Then she got our rice and blueberry breakfast ready and then got us up cleaned our cages and fed us our breakfast.Candida is doing much better since Mom put a small phone book in her cage to chew so she's not chewing the grate paper all the time.Mom swept our room and then made some cookies for dad for snack and then is going to finish off a few other chores as she won't get to do much tomorrow when she goes out with Nana on their errand run.We are hoping to get outside for some sunshine and some showers as soon as Mom gets finished and other than that its just another boring day here which we're all too happy to have.
Its so good to find BC still here for yet another day!
We got to go outside today and enjoy the sun and have several showers and join Mom and dad for dinner,we had some pasta and peas and blueberries and green grapes!We got to stay outside and watch the bunny and had to come in close to 8:00pm when it was beginning to get dark.

  Hi Kiddo
Yes the tech should stay home and make sure he is all better LOL.
We are thankful for BC and YP but they will never replace BC.
Well another day yet here on BC and always a surprise when we came to get on and its still here!
I got an early bath and a sunbath since it got very hot and humid here later in the day. I was content to sit in the sun part of my condo though I could sit in the shade too. When mom got me to to come back in the house I wanted to stay out longer or so it seemed but mom had things to do and I was out there for 45 minutes so felt that was long enough. It was getting warm by then too.
This morning mom was doing laundry and sheets and hung the sheets our and a few other things too. Then she was dusting and sweeping up the floors and getting supper prepped. Then moms cousin came and mom and her went to make cards with some other friends. Dad came home shortly so I wasn’t in locked down long anyway.

  Heya, Kiddo!
From what we hear, Hulk's place charges 18.50 for wings and nails. Maybe a $10 tip when your Mom goes would be nice, but only if it is not cutting out food for you. That would never do!!

Yup, it is definitely getting to be deserted pretty fast here. We are still out here, just because...well, hard to let go of our old BC. We do like YP but guess it is just hard to stop coming here as long as it is up and running.

HOT here. It got to a feels like temp of 103 today. We had storms this morning, and now it is getting darker out and we are under a severe thunderstorm threat. Mom and I had a nice day, though, as we had no desire to venture outside. She made some turkey BBQ, and that was yummy! Then she contacted the software company where she bought a program that probably created all the problems with her puter, asking for a refund. She was very surprised that she did not get a hassle, so hopefully the refund will be on its way. Then she called TWC Security to find out if all was okay, and they said that they would send an email if there was something weird, as they run the scans every night. Since she hasn't gotten one, she is happy.

And now it is blog time! Gotta get these in before the storms come, just in case!

Wing hugs, and hopefully will cya back here tomorrow!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hello Kiddo~
Hope the day is going well. Mom took McKenzie to get the stitches out this morning. She is healing up well but has fluid built up. No a big deal really. They say it happens when the dog is too active after surgery. Mom has to put warm compresses on the belly for a week and try to keep her from playing too crazy. I'm calling it mission impossible!hahahahaha
Back to work for mom tonight unfortunately. I like weekends better!
Enjoy the day!

Thursday love to all in your pretty BC home and give our love to all, see ya all tomorrow, one way or another...

Love forever, Jenny, Ms LaLo, Christy, Ziggy, & our daddy Chuck

Well, we're still here - although it is like a ghost town . . . We're on a warm up and by tomorrow we should be back into the 90's with higher humidity :(

Today is the sister-in-law's birthday so mom and dad will head there and take her to have her hair done (she doesn't drive) - while she's at the salon, they'll bop around the town and see what's new and going on . . .

Then they'll stop tonight (again) at the Italian Festival at the local church - mom hopes she has enough nights to sample everything ! She sure does love not cooking in this weather !

Have a great day :) love Cookie
