Redneck: 1/20/2005 The human daddy wanted a 'teil. He'd had one before we met. Human mommy had never had a bird before, so she agreed to let him have one as long as he showed her how to care for me.
Hillbilly: 8/29/2007 Hillbilly is a new brother to Redneck. We had Pepper (gray/yellow) that flew out the door and wouldn't return (she was too scared to move). Redneck started developing social problems, so we knew that we had to replace Pepper. There is a picture of her with Redneck below in her memory.

  Vote Beavis the Oldest Quaker for BOTM Page #56094
Hi everybirdie. My name is SweetPepper and I am on the campaign trail for my best friend ever, Beavis for BOTM. He is the oldest quaker at age 29 here on the BC. I think he deserves BOTM for his wisdom and strengths. He is a very quiet kind of bird but very loyal. He was my first really good friend that I met here on the BC. His mom is a wonderful person who can't spend a lot of time on the computer to campaign for him so I have dedicated myself as his campaign manager. I did it for him when I got him elected BOTW. So please help me make his day by becoming April's BOTM. Thank you, SweetPepper, campaign manager for BEAVIS FOR BOTM!!!

Teri, Joliet, IL.

I have missed our visits and we did not want to leave Illinois but here we are in a tiny town, a post office,bank,town office and cafe oh and a lumber yard. We have dirt streets, no smog, but bad weather year around well not constantly and I had to leave without meeting my bride and there is nowhere in our neck of the woods to find me a lovely lady or to get bird supplies. But it is nice and quiet and safe here? I guess a traffic jam is three cards on the road at the same time,hehe. Hope you can visit me tommorrow. Good night

  Hi Redneck and Hillbilly!!
Mom had more shots into her neck yesterday so she is not doing much today..she said I can blog a bit until it bothers her. I am settled into my house..I am in Mom's room but its a lot smaller than my other house..we are VERY close!!But she and I talk to each other a lot and I am trying to keep her spirits up. This move has been hard on her and she broke her engagement (I'm not sure what part of the body that is but it must hurt) so she is taking one day at a time. Gracie and Lil Bird are on the sun porch and they seem happy...and of course Chloe our cat and Daisy and Frazier the dogs are here too. Mom says she is outnumbered by animals!!!HEE HEE!!My latest thing is to call Chloe all a very sweet voice. Jimmy gets a kick out of it...he started his sophomore year and Mom is pushing him too, because he didn't do great last year..I think now that we are back in her house things will be much better. Well, I caught up with things and you know we all miss everyone.I can't wait till Mom is back to her old self and I can go on adventures again!!! Here's a vote and don't forget your old pal Buddy!!!!

Come visit me, Buddy !!!, Little Bird & Gracie*.

Sorry its been a while. Its been pretty busy around here. We have a new baby!! Its a human baby this time. hehehe He was born August 16. He only weighed 5lbs when he was born. Mom spent a lot of time at the hospital after he was born. He was in the NICU for a few days. But he is doing good now and hes home. He has also gained a pound since coming home. Mom has been so excited. She even put his picture on here so everyone can see him. Have a good day.

Hi Redneck and Hillbilly; Kacey and Maxi here. We are letting you know that we will be out of touch from the BC for awhile. We will be at the birdsitter's while the family takes a small vacation. The sitter is mine and SweetPepper's breeder and she is very nice and spoils us. I was running for BOTW but lost 2 weeks in a row. My boyfriend Mikey and SweetPepper's boyfriend Kiddo will start the campaign back up on Sept 1st. So please help me make BOTW starting Sept 1st. See you later my friends and I am so glad to hear that your mom is doing a lot better. Big birdy hugs. Kacey and Maxi (SEPT 1ST VOTE KACEY BOTW)

  Hey there
Welcome back! I thought I'd lost you. It's sooo goood to hear from you. I'm sorry your mom has been sick, that is really tough, and your dad out of work doesn't help either. Glad your mom is feeling better too. Mom spent three days in the hospital for a medication adjustment, and I missed her terribly. She's okay now. We are doing good. Been getting alot of rain and due to get somemore as an effect of Hurrican Fae that hit Florida. Texas got alot of flooding, it's a mess forsure. We're going out tomorrow to get my wings clipped. The groomer says they grow fast cause mom feeds me too well...I don't think so, tho she does feed me good. Life is still pretty routine around here, if me and mom didn't have each other we both would go goofy. Well, I have a vote for you, and I really am super happy you didn't forget us. We love you all and send you some feather hugs. Luv, Pierre

  Hi from Woof and Meow
Hi Redneck & Hillbilly, we didn't know your mom was sick. What's been wrong? Our own mom had surgery on her nose, which is healing, but now she's having trouble with her hands. Mom went and had an x-ray on her shoulder today and the doc gave her arthritis medicine and next week they're checking for nerve damage. Till then she's doing exercises that hurt, but we're helping by singing to her while she does them. We're glad to hear you're taking care of your own mom, and we hope you stay still for some photos. More later & here's a vote, Woof & Meow

Hi Redneck and Hillbilly. I am so sorry to hear about your mom and her having surgery. I hope you and the rest of the flock are taking real good care of your mom. She needs all the rest she can get. We miss you here on The BC and hope you can get back as soon as your mom has healed well enough. I am campaigning for my sweetheart Kiddo for BOTW now. I want to pass my crown onto him next week and I think it would be great as a couple to be back to back BOTW winners. So if you can and up to it, please VOTE KIDDO BOTW and spread the word to all your friends. SWEETPEPPER CAMPAIGN MANAGER TO KIDDO FOR BOTW

  Sad news from Bowdon Jct.
The Little Love bird Meisa, Mama sold last week, Died yesterday and Mama feels like it is her fault because she sold her. The Lady she sold her to, really got attached and feels like she let everyone down. But the fault lies with the stupid man who sprayed fabreeze around the cage. Mama is broken up over this and we feel her pain because we all loved Meisa. We hope Meisa found her way to the Rainbow Bridge and is happy with all the other birdies that went before. Well here is a vote. We hope you day is Great.

Been away for awhile with computer problems, soooo sorry, I sure missed our birdie friends. I hope all is going well with you all. We're doing just fine, We've had hot weather to boot, and lots of rain; thunderstorms, then a cooldown, and it's hot again. We've been staying inside pretty much, except for the cool days mom took me outside to play. As I said, not much happening, and it's about dinner time, so this one will be short, but will make it up to you later. Cya...heres ur vote Pierre
