  HI Sunshine!!
Sorry it's been so long since we've been on. Mommy gets awfully busy in the summertime but I finally pitched a fit and MADE her take some time to blog for me! (It helps that it's raining today though!) How is everything going with your flock?? Hope you're enjoying summer like we are!

Well, can't hold peanuts yet, but you should see how I can climb all around my cage and walk on the floor and perch with both feet without even hanging on! It's pretty great. My crooked toes keep getting tangled up in mommy's hair though! Tehehe! She said that if I stayed on her shoulder instead of climbing on her head that wouldn't happen, but I can see farther when I'm on her head, so I just keep on doing it. I don't get all panicky anymore when it gets stuck either. I just pick up my foot and scream and mommy untangles it for me. I have her so well trained! Tehehe!

And mommy FINALLY got pages up for Bonkers and FlutterBug, so if you have some time and you want to stop by and welcome them that would be so fantastic! I've been telling them what great BBFFs are on the BC and they're pretty excited to meet you all.

Well, Mommy promises to try harder and let us be on BC more than she has been, so we'll be back to see you very soon! Love you lots!! ~Huey

  Hi ya Sunshine!
How is everything with you? Mom has tonight off so she's letting me get some blogging done! Dad was home last week--he drives a truck and isn't here a lot--and he was kinda hogging my puter. Didn't get to blog much, so I'm trying to do some catch up now!
Nothing much new going on around here. I've been busy playing with toys and biting the heads off of the little rubber ducks! I love to toss them across the room and look at mom's shocked face! HAHAHA It's such a fun game!
We're still kinda cool out here, but I hear some places are already having summer weather. We got up to near 60 today but I'm sure eventually it will get warmer. It's probably better that we inch our way towards it rather then just wake up to 80 degree one day!
I helped cook dinner tonight and got some fresh mango as a treat! It was really good and I floated some in my water dish to make mango water! Yummy!!
Enjoy your evening and I'll see ya soon!! Leaving a vote and a hug for you today!!
Love from Sugar

We're playing the Little Dragons tomorrow, more commonly known as th Quakers. It appears from what was blogged n the Baseball Page, that the errors have been worked out with the team roster. Things were sent to those in charge by my parront on more than one occasion, and when the live game showed old team players, Mom was on top of the situation, by writng those in charge in a private email as previously asked, as opposed to blogging on the Baseball Page. If you see a mistake, I am asking you, and yes, this is a generic message to each of you, please email my mom at paulamtl@gmail.com and she will do her best to take care of it. See you at the game tomorrow! Let's how those Dragons what we got.

  Hello Sunshine
Thank you so much for stopping by. So nice to meet more of the teammates. I noticed you have not been on the BOTD list yet. Would you like to nominated? I would be glad to and I would even help you with the campaign too. Anything for a new friend. I am so happy to be with my new family. My hatchday is actually the day I came to live with my Mom and Dad and it will 1 year with them soon. The best year of my life and like you its been a long life. Thankfully I have not had any serious health issues, I was extremely undernourished and looked awful when they got me but now they say I am just beautiful and I have to say I agree with them.
Do you have any big plans this weekend? I want to practice for our big LIVE game Monday it should be lots of fun. Hope your weekend is a great one.

  Hi Sunshine!
Okay everybirdie! Our dear friend Sugar has nominated my frother Zebers for BOTD tomorrow! He is such a great frother and helped me out so much when I was campaigning for BOTM and I was in the hospital. He blogged every day for me! So if you have a free minute to stop by and let him know how much we all love him that would be fantastic!! He usually just kinda hides in the background, helping out without being seen. He's pretty shy and kind of humble like that, so it'd be really exciting to put him in the spotlight for a day! Thanks so much!! Love ya! ~Huey

  Hi Sunshine!!
WHEW!! What a crazy week it has been! First, our computer wasn't working AGAIN on Thursday, then mommy's boyfriend, Paul took her away from us on Friday for the whole weekend! It was a surprise for her birthday...they went to Minneapolis. But our Auntie Shawn took care of us all so it was just fine. We love our Auntie Shawn, but it sure is nice to have mommy home again today!

Well, it's official. The cast is off!!! WOO HOO!! It sure feels good! It scared mommy because I started bleeding a lot from where one of the pins was, but Doc Melissa was there and took care of it lickety split. No problem at all! I even got to go home and not stay in the hospital overnight! THAT'S how good my leg is doing! I still hold it up, but mommy thinks that it's just from habit because when I'm not paying attention I'll perch with both of them on her hand. Doc Melissa wants to wait about 3 more weeks or so before starting physical therapy. Just because where the pins were needs to heal some. So we get to start that in a little while too. But it sure feels good not to have that clunky old thing on my leg anymore! Maybe by the next milonga I'll be able to dance!!

FlutterBug and Bonkers finished their 60 day quarantine and are now moved into the bird room. They seem to like me an awful lot...they're pretty okay too. Mommy is hoping to have a BC page up for them soon. When that happens, one of us will be around to let you know!

Thanks so much for all your prayers and kind thoughts! Love you so very much my dear friend! ~a castless Huey

  Hi Sunshine!
Well, it's official. Unless the x-rays show something different my pins will finally come out on Thursday! Whew! It's been a long haul...nearly 9 weeks and I'm just excited to see how it goes! It sounds like I'll have to stay with Doc Melissa again for a day or two, but that's okay. Mommy says that I can trust her, and she would know cuz she works there now. Speaking of mommy, it's her hatchday tomorrow! Only they call it a BIRTHday. Whatever. And the other big news is that we have 2 new flock members! Two more sun conures like me! They are mates and mommy named them FlutterBug and Bonkers. They were rescues...locked in a basement for almost 4 years. They've been here for a couple of months because they were supposed to be adopted, and there was a couple different families that wanted them, but they were SOOO scared in a different house. Mommy said that's funny cuz they were never scared when they came here, but I say it's cuz they know how much mommy loves all us fids. They always cuddled right up in mom's shirt when they came back, so she decided that they needed to stay with us! (not to mention that she fell in love with them too!) So they were in quarantine for 2 months and they just got moved into the bird room tonight! Bonkers kept flying over to my cage though...I'm not too sure about that. He was real friendly though. Not a mean bone in his body. Anyway, that's the big news in our house! I'll be sure and have Zebers stop by and let you know how my surgery went! Love you very much!! ~Huey

  Hi Sunshine!
My dear friend Artie asked me to help pass along a message in my blogs today. She said that Divo's mommy thanks everybirdie so very much for all their kind words and condolences. She is going to be away from the BC for a couple of days...she needs some time to grieve, but she will be back on soon.

And then there is even more sad news. Kiddo was telling birdies yesterday too, but I wanted to make sure you knew. Little Bird (152305) from Sweetheart's flock flew to the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. He had a broken wing and was supposed to be having surgery on it. I'm not exactly sure what happened to my poor little friend. All I know is that I am so very heartbroken. I didn't know that my heart could break so many times. I'm so sad that I'm not even sure what to do anymore...sigh. ~A tearfilled King Huey

  Hi Sunshine
I'm here with even more very sad news. My BBFF Divo (152853) flew to the Rainbow Bridge last night. There was a horrible accident, their new puppy wanted to play with him but didn't know to be gentle with a bird. I am having a beautiful plaque made in Divo's honor and putting it up right in the throne room of the castle, next to all of the ramps and other beautiful work that he and Falco did. Fly free my dear, sweet friend. You are so very missed. ~A very sad King Huey

  Hi Sunshine!!
I have lots of good news!! Good News #1: My leg looks VERY good!! The x-rays show that it's healing even better than last week which is GREAT! And this week, for the first time, I've been using it and putting weight on it. Mommy is really happy! They still decided to keep those nasty pins in though. Doc Melissa said that it'll just get better if we leave them in for a week or two yet. Sigh...I was SOOO hoping to get this darn cast off my leg. Oh well.

Good News #2: Miss Lucy Blue accepted my offer and she is now the Official Lady of the King's Court! So if you have some time, please stop by and congratulate her!

Good News #3: I have some of the most amazing BBFF's in the whole wide world! They have been secretly working with Zebers on lots of amazing things here at the castle. Hulk, of course, made the racetrack, but he made ME a car that I can drive with just my beak! So I can still race around without having to worry about hurting my leg!! Sugar made the most beautiful railing you have ever seen and it goes ALL over the castle! That way I have something to use my beak on as I'm walking if my leg starts to hurt. That girl sure is good with that wood! And then, Divo and Falco did incredible work in the throne room! There's a ramp, and railings and the best part....a MOTORIZED throne! Tehehe! It's been so fantastic having such wonderful friends! I can't wait to see what Norman does with the motorized throne! Thank you so much to my dear BBFF's who did such fabulous work! You make me feel very loved and humbled to be your king. And I hope everybirdie comes by the castle to see all the wonderful work they have done!

Good News #4: Mommy FINALLY got a job! She's actually working for Doc Melissa! Tehehe! She really likes it, although it's going to be a bit of adjustment for us since we're used to having her home all day. She says she really misses us during the day, but she sure does like having a job again!

Well, that's it! It sure is nice to have some good news to share! It's been a very sad couple of months on the BC, so some happy news sure is a breath of fresh air! Hope you are all enjoying the springtime weather! Love you lots!! ~King Huey

  Hi, Sunshine
Your flooding sounded pretty serious. Water deep enough to practically float a car! That's a whole lot of water. I feel bad for the trees that went down. All those years of hard work in growing, gone now. Where will the birdies build their nests this year? Sad...
As for baseball, let our Coach Max (40581) know that you and Fred still want to play this season the Columbian Conquistadors. Max's flock lost a member earlier this month and his mom has had a hard time dealing with the sadness. She's not been on the BC as much lately but there'll come a day she'll be ready.
As for the yellow on my head, yeah, I'm assuming that I get older, the yellow will spread. Jenny Lynn's dad was saying he liked my yellow just the way it was so mom asked him if he wanted her to pluck the yellow ones out that came in lower. LOL. Funny, mom. That's be like hankin' grey hairs on a human. There are already a few new yellow ones growing in further down my neck. The change has begun.
Happy St. Patrick's Day, Sunshine. There's no need for you or I to worry about being pinched today. We've been wearing green for a lifetime! A <ª)

  Hi Sunshine
King Huey here with more very sad news. Over the last week we have lost 3 BBFF's. April (109387) and Chevy (148347) are fiblings. They flew to the Rainbow bridge a week apart. There mommy, Tiffany, is very heartbroken. And then on Monday we lost Maxi (9042) part of SweetPepper's flock. This sure is one part of being king that I don't like. But boy they must be having a big ol' party up at the Rainbow Bridge with so many BBFF's arriving! I just wish it didn't have to be this way and we didn't have to miss them so very, very much. Fly free all my dear sweet friends. You are so terribly missed already.

And even though it is such a sad time, I would like to honor a very special princess. Miss Lucy Blue helped me out immensely this past week. See my mommy was very sick with the flu (so sick that her boyfriend, Paul, would come and feed us and play with us cuz mommy couldn't get out of bed!) Well, mommy CERTAINLY wasn't up to taking my dictations, so I called upon Miss Lucy to help. She and her mommy stayed up extra late flying around BC and letting everybirdie know what was going on. She worked so very hard and did such a wonderful job that I have named her "Miss Lucy Blue, Lady of the King's Court" and I have offered her a suite in the castle for the remainder of the month (of course, Jivu can always stay too! Tehehe!) I have not heard back for her to see if she will accept this title, but I sure hope she does!

Mommy is feeling a bit better. She's out of bed and even put in a half a day at work today, but now she's REALLY exhausted! And my check-up for my leg has been bumped back to Thursday this week, so we'll be sure to let you know what Doc Melissa says!!

Thank you for being such a great friend. I will always treasure my BBFF's...ALWAYS. Love from your King ~Huey

P.S. It was so wonderful to hear from you my friend...as always! How are Fred's feet doing? Is he liking being on that diet? Tehehe! I know I would HATE it! So glad to hear everything is going so well with you! Hope to hear from you again soon! Love you lots!!

  Hey Sunshine!
Great to hear from you. What's going on with JenLyn, you ask? Well, I had a great time during the week I went and stayed at her house! Is it something, or what! that I actually get to go visit my BC gal-pal. Her dad asked if I could come hang out for a few days and my mom (reluctantly) said yes. How could she say anything else; Jen had just been here at MY place for a week. So I packed my bags and moved in with my gal for awhile. We'd spend time sitting next to each other then move off and find our own things to do. We didn't preen each other or anything personal like that but we did touch beaks on occasion. That girl's a friendly one! I have to say though, it was good to be back home. With warmer weather on its way, there'll be more visits between us in the future which I'm looking forward to.
Yes, I'm looking forward to the baseball season. Being that I've been fully flighted all winter, I think I'm in pretty good shape. I'm definitely in much better shape than I was when I joined my family. I'd gotten rather heavy from not moving around at all. I was so out of practice at moving, I could barely shuffle sideways on a perch. I've come along ways, which is good. Really good. So, yay, bring on the baseball season. I'm ready to play ball!
Thanks for flyin' by. I'm whappin' your vote button on my way out. Catch ya later! A <ª)

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Sunshine! I'm down to my last couple of small pieces of wood on my last lousy hanging toy. That human of mine had better get her tailfeathers out to that garage and figure out how to get that miter saw working again....Hope you had a great day! Cya...

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Sunshine! Heck, we Zons can't help it--we live to chew! And yes, I slide my beak along the wooden floor when I'm down wandering as well, but so far I haven't been able to get a grab on it before I get picked up. I guess my human learned her lesson the hard way when she didn't notice that I was chewing on the built-in bookcase a few months back....heehee...Hope you enjoyed your day! Cya...

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Sunshine! Speaking of toys--my human noticed that my wood parts of my hanging toys were getting a bit sparse, so she went into the garage to cut me some pieces. Turns out that the son-in-law locked down the miter saw somehow and she can't figure out how to release it. So no new pieces of wood for me until she can get someone to find the release. (don't laugh--at least she knows how to operate it. Just doesn't know how to unlock it....lol...) Hope you enjoyed your weekend! Cya...

  Hi from your team captain Max
Baseball season is upon us again, faster than I had thought. I was asked to get in touch with each of you, by the organizers, and ask if you want to play again this year… if you want to keep the same position and numbers and last but not least – we would like an email address to be able to have more direct contact – you know, parront to parront. Instead of blogging me, could you please have your parront email Mom at paulamtl@gmail.com and please put BASEBALL in the subject line. All messages pertaining to baseball will have their own folder. Opening day is April 5th from what I have seen and we want to be ready! Looking forward to hearing from you.

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Sunshine! Good to see you again! Wow, you sure had a lot of snow. We had a really tough winter as well, and it hasn't ended yet. We still haven't recovered from our last two heating bills....lol... I love those rubber duckies and squeak toys and balls with bells. Even when I attack them, I usually don't damage them or chew them up. But I'm pretty good about not eating any plastic or rubber, so there are some strange things in my cage. Plastic baby spoons, strange little rubber creatures hung with my blocks of wood, plastic gallon screw lids, popsicle sticks, hard plastic spiders--kind of like a garbage dump owned by Stephen King....lol... Hope you enjoyed your weekend, and don't be such a stranger! Cya...

  Sunshine!
So good to hear from you and Fred. Glad to know all's well with the both of you and the rest of the flock and family. Wish some of the flock's here could say the same. It's been a tough week with the loss of two of our BC family. There was also nearly a third- Artie, a 'Too with a dreadful heart infection, but her awesome doc was able to keep her with us. Artie's in a special rehab program today in an effort to get her on a road to complete recovery.
You've had some incredible snowfall this year. Wow. It seems like more than the norm has fallen here as well but not near the 78" that you've gotten. I hope Mother Nature remembers to check her calendar because spring's supposed to arrive in a mere 20 some days.
It's good to have you back with us here on the BC. — A <ª)

Come visit me, Alfie.

  Hi Sunshine!!
So great to hear from you!!! We sure have missed you around here! Mommy gets updates from your mommy through e-mail, so we still get to hear how you're doing, but it's not the same as having your beautiful face visit my page! Tehehe! I heard that you were all healthy and got a good report from the vet, but that Fred is too fat! Tehehe! Must be all that lovin'! Mommy says that lovin' makes you fat (at least that's her excuse! Tehehe!) It was so wonderful to hear from you! Be sure to give your mommy kisses from all of us and say hello to the rest of the flock! Love you lots!! ~Huey

  Hey Sunshine!
Good to hear from you. I know all about that busy-mom problem. Sometimes I go awhile myself without any BC time. I thought with winter here and no yardwork to steal my mom away, there'd surely be more blogging time but for some crazy reason it didn't improve all that much. Shucks.
Don't worry about missing the chance to visit Pebble's page. Turns out it actually wasn't her hatchday; there was an error in the Calendar Page. Her special day was this past New Year's Day though.
About that Christmas snow, uh, our day started with tons of RAIN! Rain on Christmas Day here in IL... my mom was so bummed. She looked a lot like a seven year old who didn't get what she wanted for Christmas. If we'd have gotten 21' of the white stuff, I'd have had an ECSTATIC mom on my wings. Luckily by late afternoon the rain turned to snow and by evening the ground was white again. It's been that way ever since. Now we're dealing with temps in the negatives. It was -17° the other night. Boy, from one extreme to another. Weather! It's crazy. I'm just happy to be indoors where it's warm and dry.
Here' to the New Year, Sunshine. I hope it's a really good one for you and your family. Thanks for stoppin' by. — A <ª)

Come visit me, Alfie.

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey SB! My goodness, it's good to see your handsome beak again! I thought you were gone forever! Wow, that's a lot of snow you have. We just got 3", on top of the 3" on Christmas (it's been so cold it didn't melt) and for us, that's a lot. I'm tired of this 'Winter Wonderland" look already, and winter just started....lol... I look forward to chatting with you again, and I hope that the New Year brings you nothing but good things! Cya...

  Hi BBFF!!
Hello BBFF! Well, I need to apologize for not stopping by this weekend, but we had kind of an emergency. See mommy had this thing called a seizure and was in the hospital for awhile. It was really scary! But not to worry. So far the doctors say that everything in her head looks normal, but they want her to see a neurologist (so many big words!!! WHEW!!) just in case. Hope you stop by real soon...I'm running for BOTM! We promise to be better at getting back to you! Love ya!! ~Huey
