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 Peppino #262561 for BOTM!!

I am a Senegal Parrot from Simi Valley, CA.

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


13 years old   M

Senegal Parrot

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

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

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

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

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

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

  Hi Kiddo
That is different,to not have the push ups in the I'm on Fire song!Then after that they do the other song that has them doing the murphee's or burpees?where they drop down in a squat and kick out your legs behind you and then jump back up!At least they get a break in between dances with another dance before going into the murphees!Mom won't be able to go to the gym next week on Wednesday as skin sis has to work because of the holiday so Mom won't be going back to the gym til the following week.
Oh I so agree with you on having our Mom's eat both lunch and dinner and I'm sure that you would've been able to help your sweet Momma eat it all for sure!
I'm so proud of you for being so good and not biting your poor sweet Momma anymore!Oh don't I hate that also when my Momma leaves me in the bird room cage and won't come in to get me out and I have to scream in my loudest GCC voice to get her attention to come and get me!Like I saw my Mom all dressed this morning early and I wasn't about to stay here in my cage when she was going out!
Oh do all of us here hate the color red,Mom had a shower perch for us and it was red,she had to take it back,you can't wear anything red here or you'll get attacked and you better no be seen in black either and that goes for black cages,playgyms,anything black!
It was a bright sunny morning here and the temperatures were 35 and it was freezing.Mom got us up early again and cleaned our cages,fed us and then dad helped Mom put the trash she collected in her car along with some other things and then she collected Dixie and got him in his carrier and wrapped him up In a warm blanket and put him in the car that dad had already warmed up for Mom,and off to Nana's they went.Dixie got to stay with our cousin Trixie II while Mom and Nana went to the dump,Post Office,then to Walmart,Michaels,and Shaws,then they went to Stop&Shop and got a few things there and then by the time they got back to Nana's house it was 4 O'clock and getting dark.Mom got all the groceries loaded in her car and then came back and got Dixie and they came home where Mom had to get Dad some dinner,clean out our cages,feed us our snack and put all the groceries away.While Mom was gone all day my dad put the purple lights in the dining room window and do they look just awesome!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs! Loving you always and forever,Dixie

Great you were on good behavior today. Bet your mom was glad too! I only take a bath in my water bowl when mom runs that sweeper.
Today mom was messing with making a card she has been working on for a while after she got her house work all done. Then this evening she decided to print out on this thinner paper with a saying on it. The first one came out fine but the second one got stuck in the printer! Mom worked for a good while and then dad came with all his tools to see what he could do with it. After about 3 hours dad got the paper out of the rollers and plugged back in. He ran one paper thru and it was a bit dirty and at this point mom isn’t about to even try it again!!

You know that saying about not biting the hand that feeds you? It's something you need to take to heart, my friend! Mom is your only friend in the house, you know...
This morning mom went to the center as usual, and was assigned the squirrel porch and the squirrel pens. Needless to say, she had her new coat on, not thinking of working outside. So she hung up her coat and got one of the ghillie suit coats to wear while she worked. It was really cold outside, or she'd have gone out in just her sweatshirt. Haha, I bet the squirrels never saw her coming! She was disguised as a bunch of leaves, haha. There are 19 squirrels spending the winter outside this year.
After she got home her sister called her to go to the Italian store to buy food for Christmas eve. So, we are here after 3:30, just starting our blogs. At least Peppino went first, and his are done.
That's all the news for now too, so I hope you are having a wonderful day full of anticipation of Santa Bird coming to visit you, and being so very good. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kiddo
Thanks for your votes every day! I love hearing from you.
Today we are in Market Square, in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh. Every Christmas season it turns into a Holiday Marketplace, with booths set up for buying locally made crafts and artworks, food booths and tables for the people brave enough to sit outside and eat, a house for Santa to stay in and see the children, and even a stage where locals can perform music, theater, and dance. It's a fun place to visit during the holidays, and it sure brightens up the downtown area for everyone. It has become a destination for some, along with decorated store windows, and the replica of the Vatican nativity scene on Steel Plaza.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of love. Hugs, Peppino

Uh, oh, another bite? Drew blood? Yikes! You must be rather hormonal since no warning and if on the hand can understand about not wanting to type your blogs. Hopefully you'll be back to your loving self soon.

It's Popeye.
Mom and dad saw a very good movie yesterday. It's called "The Judge". Before the movie, dad bought gas for the car, at $2.35 per gallon and after the movie he picked dinner at The Green Burrito. Not a real exciting day.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 64 and a low of 48. Looks like today will be just as exciting.
Hope your day is fun.

What is going on with all of us birds? maybe it's a combination of hormonal and Christmas eggcitement?
We'd better all settle down as Santa Bird is watching.
I saw the sun for an hour today. It made all the snow on the trees and ground look like crystals, very pretty. I don't know why it won't stay. The snow will be back for sure on Tuesday. I hope the sun comes back too. It stays away much too long!

  Hi Kiddo
you must not bite your mummy or santabird won't bring you presents.

well we got a light dusting of snow last night. it has melted everywhere else but our yard.

When the forest suddenly gets quiet and birds take flight, it might be time to worry about a brewing storm.

scientists stumbled on the finding when they were studying golden-winged warblers—small birds that weigh less than a third of an ounce. the team was testing if the birds could carry tiny backpack transmitters.The warblers are the smallest species ever tracked, and when the researchers retrieved the transmitters from five birds, they discovered something strange: The birds had all moved away from their breeding grounds a day before the storm, flying nearly 1,000 miles—even though the tornado was still hundreds of miles away.

The researchers think that the birds were sensing infrasound—acoustic waves that occur at frequencies below 20 hertz. While humans can’t hear such a low level of sound, it’s known that birds and other animals can.

is it time to fire the meteorologists and start looking to the sky for storm predictions? Not quite yet.“Birds are really good at predicting storms, but they’re not a good replacement for satellites and radar, There is one situation that birds could beat humans: “If you were all alone in the forest and all the birds left, you should be worried about it.”

When storms force birds to flee, it can put pressure on their ability to breed. As storms become more powerful and frequent with climate change, those disruptions will grow.“They wouldn’t do this with a normal thunderstorm, but if it comes to big storms arriving every year and birds losing four to five days of breeding season, it would be a big problem for their conservation,”
Golden-winged warblers have suffered one of the steepest population drops of any songbird species in the past 45 years, according to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Conservationists are working on a plan to stop the decline and grow the population 50 percent by 2050.

What is up with you? Holy moley. You are a biting machine--and that is not good this close to Christmas...actually, not good at any time. Guess you are grumpy bird, huh? Gosh, sure hope you chill out. I go after Mom's toes, and have gotten good ones in. That is kinda cyclical, though. Sure hope you are getting out of being so hormonal.

Not much else going on here. Just more cold and grey. UGH. They keep saying we will get sunshine, but doesn't happen.

Oh boy I think your in big trouble the whole way around with Christmas so close and Santa watching all the time too. You better tell your sweet mama how sorry you are for doing that to her and her typing fingers at that!
Mom thought she was going to get some things done here today but just when she got her cleaning done and started the next project skin sis called. She had went out to start her car to go to the store and it wouldn’t start so mom and dad went over with the battery charger. It started pretty quick and she left it run a while and went to the store and it seems ok. Think the problem was not running it for a while cause they were using BIL car. Mom did come home and did a few more things but the rest are on the list for tomorrow now.

How could you do that to your sweet wonderful Momma?Bite her so hard on her fingers like that so she can't even type for you?And to make her bleed that was really uncalled for,I do hope you said that you were sorry!Now that is such a painful spot on where you hurt your poor Momma and you'll be lucky if she ever forgives you for doing such a bad thing to her!
We woke up to a bright sunny day here with the highs of 44 and the lows going to be 29.Mom finally stayed home with me but she was busy cleaning up the clutter in the corner of her room and the closet up there and she got rid of alot of stuff and put some of it in a tote so it wasn't in view!Then she collected some of the trash and got it ready to be loaded in her car tomorrow along with the recyclables as she has to get out of here early tomorrow in order to get everything done and back home on time so she's not out really late for the fourth time this week!
You never have to apologize for a short visit,but just don't be so nasty to your poor sweet Mom anymore?We all love her and she's such a good Mom to you sharing you with her lunches and taking you out for a sun bath,its just not right for you to do that to her!

  Hi Kiddo
I hpe mom got that insurance problem solved. They are such a pain, aren't they?
Today mom had 2 tours at the museum, one on climate change and biomes with 7th grade, and one with 6th grade called 3 Cultures. The one with the 7th graders was fun, it was interesting to mom to have 2 guys in the new docent class trailing her to see how to do them, too. (She hasn't had men chasing her for the longest time, hahaha.) The second tour had about 100 kids, which meant 10 docents and groups! The halls they visit for 3 cultures are close together, but small. They compare 3 desert cultures, ancient Egypt, Inuits (tundra) from about 100 years ago, and modern Hopi Indians. It's hard not to bump into other docents with their tour groups when the halls are so small and close together, but it's manageable if everyone is going in the same direction.
Anyway, mom is home now and will go out to dinner tonight with her sister. At least the tree and stockings are up and in place! Mom did that yesterday while she was waiting for the furnace people to call about Aunt Gin's house. They called her finally and set up another day, next Tuesday! GAAAAHHH!

  Hi Kiddo
Thanks for your continuing votes! I love hearing from you every day, too.
Today we are taking some public transportation! Not your common bus, subway, or trolley, but the INCLINE! (Pittsburgh does have the trolleys, buses, and a little subway system as well.) For anyone not from around here, the inclines are a way to get from downtown to either Mount Washington or the South Side, depending on which one you take. The first 2 shots are the Duquesne Incline, which goes up from Station Square in town to Mount Washington, a neighborhood of Pittsburgh that offers spectacular views of the downtown area. The next 2 are the Monongahela (or Mon) incline, which goes to the slopes of the South Side of the city. Believe it or not, there used to be public steps every bit as steep as the inclines are, where steelworkers and glassworkers would climb from their jobs to their homes. Imagine going up a couple hundred steps after a long day in the mill!
The inclines were originally used for that same purpose, but today they are mostly a tourist attraction, although some folks still park up there and ride to town because parking is cheaper on the hills. If you are a senior citizen, you ride for free, the same as all the public transportation in the city.
I hope you are having a fun day today and getting some sun. It's cold and kind of snowy here. Hugs, Peppino

It's Popeye.
Sorry we weren't on the BC yesterday. Mom and dad got up early and left the house. They went to a funeral for a friend. One of the people in dad's police volunteer group passed away. She had been a volunteer for 25 years. The ceremony was packed. Everyone, including the Chief of Police and the entire command staff was there. There were so many people that more chairs had to be set up outside the chapel. After the ceremony there was a reception held at a nearby banquet hall. The room was filled. There was not an empty table to be found. There was a full buffet of food and two tables of disserts. Dad says that he thinks the police dept. helped pay for the reception. Dad said that you never really know how many friends you have until your funeral.
After the reception mom and dad went to the Magnolia Bird Farm for our food and by the time they got home it was way past our bedtime. Mom and dad were both so full from the buffet that they didn't fix any dinner for themselves.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 65 and a low of 47. Dad has to fill up the car with gas cuz they have a play to go to on Saturday.
Hope your day was fun.

  Hi, Kiddo
We had a bit more rain yesterday. Our lawn was taken out but green stuff is growing there (some kinda other ground cover that dad will eventually rototill under) and ground is still damp so know the trees are lovin' it. Think mom read that we perhaps halfway to getting out of the drought? Need several more big storms

Oh, no! Another battle with the ins company about the hospital bill? We shall keep our wings crossed that things will get straightened out. Our mom had to deal with that a tad years ago but never saw a bill that high, yikes! Think the highest was in the low five figures but things weren't billed correctly.

WOOHOO! You will have a green lawn soon. I did see a patch of green grass after our big melt (over the septic field ... hehe). But, now it's all covered with white again.
I can't believe all that trouble your mom has with hospital bills. What is wrong with those people? I think your mom is right and they are out gambling!
I love to talk on the phone but, Bailey would attack it.
Mom thinks it's a girl thing.
Well, we are back to cold and snow. Looks like a good peppermint hot chocolate day around here. I can drink it while watching dad plow the snow. He must like to do that cause he does it a lot ... must be fun. I just don't see it.

THAT IS GREAT NEWS THAT NOW YOUR MOM'S PACKAGE IS THERE AND YOUR PACKAGE IS THERE. ONLY 8 MORE DAYS TILL YOU GET TO OPEN YOUR PACKAGE UP. EVERYTHING IS FORM MY HEART TO YOURS SO I KNOW YOU WILL LIKE THEM.

THATS SO SWEET SITTING ON YOUR MOM AND GRINDING YOUR BEAK. MOM LOVES THAT SOUND WHEN I DO IT. ITS BEST TO BE A GOOD BIRDIE SO THAT SANTA COMES TO YOUR HOUSE AND LEAVES YOU LOTS OF FUN TOYS AND TREATS.

THE FIRST EPIDURAL MOM HAD IN JUNE WAS DONE ON THE LEFT SIDE OF HER BACK BETWEEN L4-L5 SPACE. THERE WAS FAST RELIEF THE NEXT DAY. THE CAUDAL EPIDURAL MOM JUST HAD CAUSED MORE PROBLEMS AND IT TOOK FOUR WEEKS TO DEAL WITH THE PAIN. MOM STILL HAS SOME ACHES IN THE LOW TAILBONE FROM IT STILL. SHE IS JUST GLAD THE LEG SPASMS HAVE STOPPED. NOW WE HOPE IT WILL LAST TILL TILL MAY, KEEP YOUR TOESIES CROSSED FOR MOM.

I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT THE INSURANCE IS BUGGING YOU ABOUT THE HIATAL HERNIA SURGERY. I THINK THE HOSPITAL SCREWED UP ON THE CODE NUMBERS THEY PUT IN. IF THE ABSOLUTE CORRECT CODE NUMBERS ARE NOT PUT IN IT CAN CAUSE A BIG PROBLEM IN GETTING IT PAID FOR. SOUNDS LIKE THAT HOSPITAL HAS SOME EMPLOYEES THAT DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING. HOPE IT GETS STRAIGHTENED OUT SOON.

LOTS OF RAIN TO HELP WITH THE WATER TABLE IS GOOD BUT NOT WHERE IT FLOODS EVERYTHING AND CAUSES MUDSLIDES.

WE HERE ARE INTO OUR 7TH DAY OF HAVING NO SUN AT ALL. IT WAS COLDER TODAY ALSO, IN THE LOW 30'S AND WINDY. WE MAY GET SNOW ON CHRISTMAS EVE AND CHRISTMAS DAY BUT NOT SURE SINCE THE WEATHERMEN HAVEN'T GOT IT RIGHT ABOUT THE SUN SHOWING UP.

TOMORROW MOM HAS LAUNDRY TO DO AND MAYBE DUST THE FLOORS AND WASH THE KITCHEN FLOOR. WILL SEE HOW HER BACK HOLDS UP FOR IT.

HOPE YOU STAY GOOD TOMORROW AND NO BITING MOM. BEAKIE KISSES ARE BETTER.

SENDING YOU THE SWEETEST BEAKIE KISSES MY LUV.

YOUR KISSABLE WIFEBIRD,
SWEETPEPPER

  there.By the time they got back to Nana's it was well past 5:00pm,so skin sis drove Mom back home and she got dad a tv dinner as she was too tired to cook and it was too late to take something out,then she cleaned our cages,dad had already gave us our snacks and filled our pellet dishes and put the light on for for us and we were screaming for Mom to close our curtains.We hate seeing the darkness outside,its so scary to us!After Mom put the things she got away and served dad his dinner,she sat down and made out more cards to get in the mail in the morning.
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
My Mom has all our playgym's in each room of the house so we can get our exercise and fly from all three rooms,well,I used to be able to fly,but now its up to Kallie and Candida to get all the exercising these days.I sure do miss being able to fly and go where I want to whenever I wanted to,now I'm dependent on Mom to bring me out and put me in my acrylic cage so I won't fall and hurt myself.You sound like a greyt guard bird and let your sweet Momma know who's coming into your yard,my frother Kallie gets to do that now for us unless I'm in the acrylic cage in the big window in the tv room so I can see who's coming into our spare driveway and on our deck!Kallie does that to Mom also,screams right in her ear so she goes deaf and her ears ring for awhile!
Now your sweet daddy is trying to be nice to you by offering you a little piece of Dorito and you shouldn't have lunged at him like that when he was being nice to you!Candida does that to my dad and he's the one who wants to dine with her,I got thrown off dining with my dad ever since Candida came into the picture!That's just not fair,I can only come out on the dining table as long as Mom is there to protect me from Candida's mean advances on me!She can be so good and preen me and then the next minute she will beat me up and steal food right outta my mouth!
Your poor Momma having to go through the stress of fighting with those insurance companies again,who are they kidding $100,000 dollars?Our prayers are with your sweet Momma to win this battle quickly and not to have to worry about it anymore!That really is such a stressful thing to have to deal with yet again!You would think after the first time they would now get it straight!
My frother attacks the phone also whenever my Mom has it and he always takes a big bite out of her hand so Mom has to be careful when she has the phone around him!
This morning was a drab dismal day with pouring rain early in the morning and then the sun came out nicely for a short period of time,then it went back to being miserable and very foggy with the temperatures at 45, the highs were to be 50 and the lows are to be 35.Mom got us up early and cleaned our cages and gave us some Madagascar mix and pellets as she ran out of our bean mix,then skin sis came by and they took off for zumba class and then after they got out from there they went to Nana's and skin bro met them there and they went over the Bridge to Wareham to celebrate Nana's birthday at LongHorn restaurant as the skin sibs wanted to take her out.Mom had shrimp and lobster soup as did Nana and a mixed green salad,then after they were done skin sis ordered the chocolate stampede cake for Nana's birthday and was that ever good.Then they went to Target and did some shopping there,then went back to The Dollar Tree in Wareham as ours was set fire to in Falmouth,then they went back to Nana's and dropped skin bro off as he had to be somewhere for a job and they went to Marshall's and got more shopping done t

  Heya, Kiddo!
Those insurance hassles are so awful, and that is one humongous bill!! Holy moley. It took Mom 3 calls to the billing folks about that one bill that they threatened her with owing the entire cost of the Dr. visit. Nowhere near your Mom's, but Mom got very specific in what she told the person who had to write down what happened: "Customer is not happy. Customer doesn't like to be threatened when the fault was not hers, it was someone at the doctor's office sending off the bill to the medical group, when she had paid it already. Fix this issue. Customer is very unhappy..." Well, what she had paid was too much, and she got a check back for $14.80. Of course, they realized they never billed her for the April visit. Sheesh! The best one was Grandpa's visit to the Emergency Room a few weeks back. His cost for the visit was $65. He has a Medicare Advantage plan, and it has great coverage. The bill was a little over $19,000. Insurance covered less than 1K. The rest was negotiated rates between the hospital and the insurance company. Mom says that she hopes they have those plans when she gets old enough. From her old employer, anyway. Grandpa pays his Medicare Part A Mom thinks, and the cost of his current insurance is $70/month. He has pharmacy coverage, too.

Other than that, it was so bitter when Mom went out for her walk that by the time she got back to the office, her face was almost numb! And it only happened when she was nearly back, and the wind was blowing pretty hard.

Happy Humpday!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Kiddo
Its bad enough going through the health ordeals and then end up having to fight with the insurance company after its all over with too! What a pain in the tail feathers that is.
Mom kept telling dad the commode upstairs was running sometimes but he didn’t listen to mom but today he heard it and was in a hurry then to fix it. Yep the water and sewage bill has been higher so that would be a sign alright but its hard for mom to convince dad of these things. Of course I was in lock down while mom had to clean the overhead commode vanity out and then put everything back once dad was done. She said it needed a good cleaning any way so guess that is one way to look at it LOL.

  Hi Kiddo
You're right, every bit of rain counts. It's good to see green, isn't it?
Happy Hanukkah to those who celebrate. I also want to thank Aunt Robin for the pic of the carolers, it's awesome!
Last night at dog class, Daisy was a bit vocal, but not too bad. The trainer gave mom more tips to work with her and not let Polly feel left out.
Today mom has to go to her friend's house when the furnace guys come to fix it. Her friend is involved with getting her mom into hospice care, and has to sign papers and talk to the hospice people today.
We haven't heard from the guy who looked at the porch roof yet, so we still don't know how much it will cost to fix it. Mom is hoping it won't be too much, so she can still get the kitchen cabinets refaced or replaced. They are the original ones from the 50s, we think, and the hardware on them is shot. Some don't close well at all, and one of them lost the latch, which can't be found any more, since it's not sold anywhere.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kiddo
Actually the ketchup is still made here. DelMonte bought out the place, but kept the name.
Thanks for your votes and visits daily! I love hearing from everybirdie.
Yesterday we did everything Heinz, today we are moving to Frick. He was one of those robber baron guys, but he gave back some to the city. Not like Andrew Carnegie, who gave back a ton, but still...
Henry Clay Frick gave Pittsburgh Frick Park, a beautiful space in the eastern part of the city with tennis courts, many playgrounds, walking trails, a nature center, a running track, an exercise track, a bowling green, as well as many picnic pavilions. In my pics today, the fifth and sixth ones are of Frick Art museum, right across from the bowling greens of the park. The Museum isn't part of the park, though. It's a small museum with many beautiful paintings. In a neighboring block is Clayton, a Frick city mansion. One of the pics is the garage. A friend of mom's is curator of the cars. The mansion itself is huge, the rooms are incredible, there is great woodwork inside. Right now it's decked out for the holidays. I don't know if you can see it, but one of the pics shows the staircase draped in greens. There are tours conducted there when people request them.
I hope you are still enjoying your tour of Pittsburgh. I'm having fun bringing to you all the great areas of the city. Hope also that you are having a great day! Hugs, Peppino

  Hi, Kiddo
We had more rain late yesterday afternoon and into the evening. Mom is glad it waited until after she, skinsis and the grand had finished shopping. Wouldn't have been fun to maneuver the baby in the carseat, the stroller and all the bags. Understand about seeing the hills/mountains looking green. Brown just didn't look good.

Hopefully you made it thru the entire day of not biting your mom. Not much sun here either and know we have rain forecast at least thru Fri.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  to get the ball and throw it in.
But it was too late. Sugar steps on the home plate doing her wiggle dance followed by Kiddo and Gus lands on third base as Laka has the ball.
So far no out and 2 runs!
Raffi is up next and he saunters to the plate wiggling his hips getting them loose for the big kick.
Laka pitches the ball and its a pop fly and Falco jumps up and catches the ball in her wing tips. Yay yells her team !!
Aww shucks as Raffi kicks the sand and goes back to home plate.
Now it's Dixie's turn. He does a little jiggle and Laka pitches the ball and he kicks it way out to centerfield where no birdie is.
Dixie runs like the wind and so does Gus. Yeah !! Gus jumps on the home plate and everybody yells go Dixie go Dixie!!! BooBoo and Kacey are trynna get the ball as it was between them both do lots of sand in between them both.
Dixie makes it around the world !!!
Yay!!! His team cheers then they hear moms whistle. Break time !!!
Every birdie yells about time !! It was getting hot. They all rush the coolers for the ice cold juice boxes and juice cans.
Angel Sallykins smiles down as she sits with Cookie telling him he did a good job. :)

Come visit me, Angel Sallykins says Happy Holidays !!! :), Pookie says Happy Holidays Every Birdie !! & Laka says Happy Holidays !!! :).

  Hey Kiddo,
Well it's a nice sun shiney day for part 2 of kickball.
Kacey was on second base and she walks to second base as every birdie gets in place.
Sugar is joining the outfield team as she wants to be first at bat soon.
Chipper pitches the ball and Cookie Haines kicks it out to left field where Sugar is and the ball happens to land in her wings as she watches the game. Cookie runs to first base but realizes that Sugar caught his ball then shrugs his shoulders and walks back to his team mates.
Yeah Sugar her team yells, 2 outs, one more!!
So now it's BooBoos turn and because she is little Pookie tells everyone to come in closer.
BooBoo just smiles as Chipper pitches the ball and she kicks it over the guys that came in closer. BooBoo is running to first base as fast as her little legs would go!!
The ball is still in the air and lands in Sugars wings again! She is as much surprised as any birdie else as she didnt hear Pookie tell everyone to move in closer.
That's 3 outs!!! Our turn!! Pookie says you can kick first since you caught 2 balls. :)
Pookie eggsplains where she wants to aim the ball and run to first base over there by Chyna and run like the wind girl! Okay says Sugar, I can do this, I can do this. She tells herself.

Laka pitches the ball and Sugar gets tangled legs and falls down. Pookie rushed over to see if she was okay but she was more embarrassed than anything else.
Pookie says no, it's okay your doing good, that's how we all learned too and he smiles at her and hands her a wing. Shall we try this again ? She grabs his wing and says ooh yes!!
Laka gets the nod and pitches the ball and Sugar kicks it way out to right field and she astonished that she could even kick it that far. She stands there watching the ball fly high in the air as everyone else.
Pookie yells Sugar!!! Run to first base !! She snaps out of her daze and says ooh yes and she runs like the wind. She's safe on first!! Yes everyone yells, good going Sugar!!!
Next up is Kiddo and he stretches a little warm up before getting up to the plate.
Laka pitches the ball and he kicks it and its a pop fly into left field where BooBoo is picking flowers as she wasnt paying attention. Everyone yells BooBoo get the ball!!!
BooBoo jumps up as she realizes the game is on!!
Sugar runs to second and Kiddo lands on first base before the ball gets to home plate. Yay !!!! Kiddos team yells. :)
Next up is Gus, a heavy hitter and he too warms up before getting to home plate.
Laka pitches the ball and its a slider!! Gus taps the ball and runs like it was a bunt! Is that even allowed ?? Oh we'll its beach kick ball!
Sugar makes it on third and Kiddo is on second and Gus makes it to first and the bases are full.
Pookie is up next and he too stretches and shows his kicks telling the other team it's going over there.
Laka pitches the ball and its a pop fly!! He lied with his feet says Cori!!
This time BooBoo is paying attention in the outfield and manages

Come visit me, Angel Sallykins says Happy Holidays !!! :), Pookie says Happy Holidays Every Birdie !! & Laka says Happy Holidays !!! :).
