  ST. PATRICK D'BIRD OF DEE WEEK -- THANKS YOU
Hi BBFFs, I am shocked. Your sweet honor has Mommy in tears. She always tells us to do our best to love others and we will recieve our rewards as God sees fit. BUT,I was thinkin' my wise friend Beavis would be BOTW. Hope you will vote for him every day this week as we have been......Well, friends I am not a poet but,I decided to spread my wings and try my feathers at limericks......Here is another from all of us that poked fun at ME! ............. ...............St. Pat will sit on his cage, if Mom he wants to engage, and nothing above, will wake up his love, a LOUD SQUAWK OR CHEECH is the rage.......Have a great week, Dad said we can't afford go on a world tour..However, some of the lesser known Oklahoma attractions are a possibility... Just have to wait and see....Love, Patrick and the flock.......

  Hello from Lonnie
Hi friend, My tummy is bulging from chewing off all the votes on your flocks pages. I didn't want the big birds to have all the fun. Your Mom sounds really nice. I can only imagine living in Florida. Mom nor Dad have ever been there. Are you near the ocean? We have read about beaches and hurricanes . Were you there when Homestead was damaged so badly? if so, That must have been scary. Mom, saw pics on TV. Many people, think Oklahoma is all cowboys and indians like in the old wild west movies..We are nothing like that. We do have tornados though, but I have never seen one. . hehe Love LONNIE

  Hi from Fortune, St. Patrick and Lonnie
Hi Kumquat, Lonnie here with a V4Y. Patrick doesn't want me to talk about his problems so I had Mommy to copy his comment to his friends. I think it is soooooo funny. Here it goes--"Mommy let me fly laps through the house until I started using the aquarium for a potty. She said that is not nice for the fishes. I kept doing it and when she tried to get me to step up off of it, last night and I bit her hard. She was bleeding bad. I thought it was funny. I laughed my self silly. Then I got grounded...I mean Literally. I flew, and flew but she cought up with me when I got tired. Guess what? She clipped my flight feathers so now I have no way to get on the aquarium... It is near the Lovies cage. Now I can't pester them either. Life is no fun....(frown) She made me sit on her shoulder. I did give her kisses and she accepted my apology...But, I am still grounded. Shucks. Do you know anything to make my feathers grow faster? Patrick" ....And to think I have to live with character....I do love him and I love you too..Lonnie

  Hello from Fortune, St. Patrick D' bird and Lonnie
Happy Lord's Day Everybirdie, Mommy just now stopped to take a breath and help us write to our friends. Daddy is not feeling well and Mommy went to church then cooked lunch for our skin sis and her three kids. It has been a great day. We (Lonnie and Ellie) watched while Fortune actually played with the skin grandkids...They were thrilled. Patrick made a huge circle flight path through the house and has been flying laps. hehe He found the new FIDS ( Slate and Mica ) Mommy is almost hysterical... She was trying to keep us all separated. Now all she can do is pray that they are not sick or we all will be sick. Mommy said to tell you PICS OF NEW FIDS on FORTUNE'S page. BABY ZEBRA 12 day)PIC is on PATRICKS page. VOTES 4 ALL our friends. Love and Kisses, Lonnie, St. Patrick and Fortune
