My mommy said it was fate. Mommy wanted me for a long time, but she couldn’t find me. Then she heard about these nice people that wanted me to have more one-on-one time with someone. So my daddy bought me as a graduation present for my mommy..

  Hi Smoky
Yesterday mom went to see her grand children. With the weather and mom being sick she hasn’t seen them in a while and misses that so was happy to see them. The other grand was playing softball so mom hopes to see her soon too. Then mom went to the craft store to meet up with her scrap booking friends and cousin. They always have fun chatting and shopping. I was glad that dad was home and I wasn’t in my condo all that time! “Walking with a friend in the dark is better then walking alone in the light.”.

Mom slept pretty good but when she took deep breaths and let it out she could hear her lungs weasing. She decided to get a doctor appointment so she did and the doctor gave her two prescriptions to get filled and then she had to go for chest xrays too. Mom was surprised she was running a low temperature too so she was glad she did go or would really be sick by Monday and hopefully now she will be on the mends then. “Lots of people want to ride in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.“ Leaving a vote for you ~~ Hugs ,Gus.

Another great night at the milonga last night on the love boat. Nothing like having good food, good drinks and being with great friends on a night out on the town. Of course the band and Chyna was great as always too and always enjoy listening to the great songs sung by the beautiful Chyna. “If your feeling blue, try painting yourself another color.” Leaving a vote for you ~~hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Dad and son in law had to go get son in laws snow tractor at his moms house since they had taken it there for hospice to get in each day ok. Mom decided she would go to skin brothers to see the grands and give them the valentine card and candy she made for them. Just as she was ready to go the power went out so mom had open the garage door manually to get the car out. On the way she saw a pickup had hit an electric pole and the wires were low so she made it past that but was the reason the electric was off. Then as she was dodging pot holes along the way she saw a police car behind her which made mom a bit nervous. He followed her almost the whole way to skin brothers but mom sighed a heavy sigh he kept on going. Then when mom went to leave skin brothers she had to make two tries to get out of the drive way. When she got home the power was still off but came on shortly after that so that was good. “Some days are diamonds and some days are stone but as long as I have you my friend I will never be alone.” Dropping a vote off for you !Your forever friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Smoky
Not good news cause son in laws mom has bone cancer so that is why her hip broke. She is home and hospice is in helping her daughter care for her. Mom says spring is in the air so I guess that must mean nice weather is coming…..or it could be she means I am hormonal. I do want to sit with mom a lot and try to feed her fingers and real lovey dovey. Mom thought maybe this year I wouldn’t be as bad as I have been the past years but we will see! Squeaky (#28415) is starting a new private bird club website cause BC wont be on much longer so go to ask Squeaky about signing up for the new one so we can all still keep in touch once BC is done. “You make me smile all over my beak.” Here is a vote for you my friend~~ hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Mom hasnt looked on the rewards page for a good while so might check it out since we have lots of points too. Moms Son in laws mom had the operation to repair her broken hip and will know more in a few days how it went then. Mom left me play with my jungle talk toy on her bed and I loved rolling it all around and was so nice and soft when it landed. Well when it fell off the bed it made noise and mom kept picking it up for me and putting it back on the bed then. “Count your rainbows, and not your thunderstorms.“ Leaving a vote for you.

Oh that dad took mom away again today!! I sat on her coat, her purse and a bag she had on the chair but it didn’t do a lick of good. Mom and dad went up to the farm to visit with dads brother and they had invited mom and dad up for dinner too. Mom baked a pie and took it along while I had my dinner in my condo all locked down. When they got home mom cleaned my condo and gave me new food and water again but I wanted to sit just with mom which I did for a long time too. I ate then while mom took her bath but kept whistling for her in between just to make sure she was still here. “The wind of heaven is that which blows around our fids.” Leaving a vote for you.

Hope to see you on FB sometime soon.Today mom went down stairs to bring up some scrap booking things to work on. Dad was up here and saw me getting off my condo and watched me stand by the steps cause I knew mom was down stairs ..the light was on. When the light went off mom came up and I pined my eyes at her and said real loud Awwwwwkkkkkk. Mom just laughed and scooped me up in her arms and said she heard my toes clipping across the floor. “We all take different paths in life, but no matter where we go we take a little of each other everywhere.” ♥ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

There is a facebook page started for BCbirds. If you want to join look for Cori picture on there and ask his mom and she will help you. Mom isnt good at FB but is on it just to keep in touch with everyone once BC is gone here. Oh the points arent much good unless you want so worthless magazine so dont matter any more about them either I guess. Mom shuts the curtains by my condo at night and then she opens them in the morning. They are right by my play gym too so I get up on the top perch and watch out to see the wild birds and what the weather is doing. Today its raining out there which looks nice but mom says I wouldn’t like being out there cause its not very warm. I think mom has a point there LOL. “Live well, laugh often and love much” Leaving a vote for you my friend. Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

We have to do a little catching up to see our next object in our part of the galaxy seeing as how it is traveling at 157,838 mph or 254,016 km/h.

We are going to investigate Halley’s Comet today. Yes there was a short note on this comet on Dec. 26th
Halley's Comet is what scientists call a short-period comet. It is the only short-period comet that is clearly visible to the naked eye from Earth and it is the only naked-eye comet that might appear twice in a human’s lifetime. It can be seen going around the Sun once every 75-76 years. The farthest it gets from our Sun is just beyond Pluto. (Yea, that planet that is not a planet.)

Astronomers from at least 240 BCE have recorded this comet. Clear records of the comet's appearances were made by Chinese, Babylonian, and medieval European chroniclers, but were not recognized as reappearances of the same object at the time. The comet's periodicity (time period) was first determined in 1705 by English astronomer Edmond Halley, after whom it is now named. Halley's Comet last appeared in the inner Solar System in 1986 and will next appear in mid-2061.
Scientists call Halleys a dirty snowball cause it is made up of water ice, CO2, and small rocks and cosmic dust. It only has a tail when it gets close to the sun.

No, the tail is not made of feathers. It is stuff that is blown off the surface of the comets body by the sun. The tail when it forms always faces away from the sun.
Haley’s Comet collects small bits and pieces of dirt and ice in its travels out to, in, & back out of the Oort cloud on its travels. Otherwise it would have disappeared a long time ago.

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to all of you too. BC is suppose to leave here around 6 months and wasnt sure if you knew or not. They are shutting down all the animal channels one by one and the reptile one is going this month if it hasnt already that is.
Today was bed day again here at the ranch LOL. Mom and dad wrestled with the mattress cause dad says he thinks the stink is gone from it. Mom told him to be sure its gone before they bring it back up from the garage! Guess dad was sure (boy is he going to be in big trouble if it isn’t) cause him and mom got it back in the bedroom again. Mom said it will be nice to get in and out of a nice size bed instead of this low one built for a small person. Now if it just has the smell out of it things will be ideal. “Faith is taking the first step, even when don’t see the whole staircase.“ Your kissing cousin, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Mom has some big plastic containers and has things in them under the bed but there isnt much clearance so mom didnt buy them with the wheels on them. The milonga sure was lots of fun last night playing football. The best part is we tied so we were all winners in the end. It was a pretty warm day here today and no snow. Mom and dad decided they needed to get some exercise in since they have been eating so much over the holiday. Dad said the trail should be ok so mom said she would walk while dad rode his bike. Well, when they got down there the trail was packed down and a bit icy so mom felt like she was walking on eggs. Dad went by her on his bike so after a while mom went up on the upper road where the gas trucks go in and it was fairly clear though it was muddy in some places so mom walked ½ mile up and then came back and up again and back again so she at least got 2 miles in. The best part she didn’t have to walk real slow like she was walking on eggs either. Dad said the ride on the bike was slower and bumpy and he didn’t go as far either.,”Thoughts of you warm the winter season and brighten every day of the year.” Leaving you a big ole vote along the way.

The rabbits got a good home now. Last night we were on to blog but that darn Squawk page sure was a pain in the tail feathers! Its not working good tonight either for us. Hard to believe Thanksgiving is over already and mom says two more to go and then its all over with for a few months and then we celebrate winter. Silly mom! Mom was cleaning out under the bed today since that new mattress will be coming soon she figures. Mom was thinking she was going to get stuck under that bed so dad gave her a rake. I thought mom was going to clobber dad with it but she just took it and pulled the stuff out from under the bed instead but was mumbling a lot and I think its good I couldn’t hear the words. ”Thoughts of you warm the winter season and brighten every day of the year.” Leaving you a big ole vote along the way.

Well mom says she is getting older too so that is changing her mind on another fid too. John is another volunteer that helps on the trail with dad and John found two full grown rabbits in a box down at the parking lot in the woods. Some nut had taken them there and just left them and good thing John found them or something would of gotten them or they would of starved to death. Some people are just so dumb and do these kinds of things. Dad and John hope to catch them. Dad put them in the garage down there and gave them water and food and left a light on for them. Lots of people come with dogs on the trail and being outside they would have been hurt or dead in no time. John kept calling around and finally found someone with other rabbits and they will take these two in also. Mom and dad went down and met John and his wife Sue and they caught them in the garage. John and Sue had them in the back seat and was taking them to their new home then. “Friendship is the golden thread that ties the heart of all the world”.

Mom says I will probably just be an only fid in our family now. Mom is getting older and thinks that is best for all of us. Yesterday morning mom told me she was going to a craft show just down the road and she would be right back and she was too. She bought some cinnamon hard candy but that was it. Then we discussed a few things and she wanted me to go down stairs with her while she worked on some scrap booking but I didn’t want to go. When she got was down there I kept yelling to mom and saying what my jungle talk toys says and mom would repeat it. Finally she came upstairs and made some envelopes and then saw my jungle talk toy wasn’t working and put new batteries in it for me again. I sure was happy about that! “Friends are kept forever in the heart.” Leaving a big ole vote for you my friend…Gus. (RIP Chi chi)

Yesterday at the warehouse there was a male and a female ekkie together in a cage for sale. The male had very pretty feathers and nice coloring but the females feathers looked pretty bad. She even had a yellow feather. When mom asked about that the lady said they were rescues and were fed a lot of junk food but she had them on Higgins intune food which is something new so mom did buy a bag of it for me. She will only give me a little bit and watch me closely then to see how I re act to it if I do. If it causes problems the wild birds will get it and mom knows its not for me. Mom kept thinking the male ekkie was saying hello but listened better and it was the female talking and she had such a soft sweet voice. ”Of all gifts life could send the best is knowing you’re my friend.“ Leaving a big old vote for you.

That is great and now that she is going back home bet you sure miss her lots too...glad she will be back at Christmas time though.
Well the weather guesser says cold weather moving in for next week here and mom knows its bound to happen sooner or later. She has to bring her plants in from out on the porch soon. Today she bought the inside plant holder up stairs so guess that is a start. At least those nasty stink bugs seem to be gone or hiding somewhere very good!

The one grand that comes here to spend a weekend once a month with us is here! I love being with her and she is pretty patient but mom says she thinks I am wearing my welcome out with her …I cant believe that could happen though LOL. They were all here with me all day yesterday and then in the evening they went to some fright night with the other grand and her parents. It was soon bed time for me and since I was pestering the grand all day I was a bit tired and soon my bed time anyway. I heard them come home and mom covered me up for the night then. Now the grand has gone home and things are back to normal, what ever that is. V4U~ “Never regret anything that made you laugh.” Your kissing cousin, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

We tried and tried to get on BC last night but never could so here we are at last! That mom has just been going away too much lately and needs her wings clipped I think! Yesterday morning mom went to see skin brother and his family a good while. Dad was home so I was not confined to my condo at least. Then mom came home and cleaned my cage and gave me all fresh foods and water and pretty soon she and dad were going somewhere. Mom said they were going to see dads mom a little bit and when mom put me in my condo I growled really loud at her but that didn’t keep her home none. When they came back home mom gave me lots of loves and we talked things over a bit and I still love her and forgave her. “A smile happens in a flash but the memory can last a life time.” You smiling friend, Gus.

Gosh I sure hope they soon fix BC !! Remember mom bought that sprouting jar at the bird show she went to a few weeks ago? Well mom finally got some sprouts growing from it and after she looked online found out she was suppose to be watering it so many times a day and once she did that it took off good then. I keep telling mom I think the wild birds would enjoy the sprouts but mom says they are good for me but I hate to disappoint mom but I really don’t like eating it and it keeps me mind of eating grass. I mean I am a bird and not a cow! If I get hold of the sprouts those wild birds are going to love me LOL.

Yesterday dad and a bunch of other volunteers took tires out of the river to clean it up. There is a place that would take them that day if they got them out. Dad said there was about 80 to 100 they got out but another 200 they didn’t have enough time to do them. They were all on a sandbar so they waded out to it with a canoe and loaded what they could into the canoe and then pushed it to shore where some other people would unload it. Too bad the states don’t make people pay an extra $2 more each tire and then get it back when they turn the tires in then. Bet there would be people picking up any tires others throw over board then too. “The joy of the journey is best measured by friends and not the miles.” Leaving a vote for you my friend~~ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi).

The neighbor has a milk thistle plant in his yard and we see the little yellow finches going there and eating the thistle. They sure are a pretty bright yellow and very quick flying too. They almost skip across flying up and down quickly in the wind. Sometimes the little white things start to fly from the plant when the wind blows them around. Mom says they look like my fuzzies I have on me from molting LOL.

I like my new play gym too and play on it a good bit too. Well today was a bit better and I got to rest up too so that helped matters. The parronts and skin sis and the grand went to 7springs resort and dad and the grand rode the zip lines. Dad likes to do crazy things yet (at his age!) so the grand is the only one young enough to keep up with him and loves doing them too. Mom and skin sis kept there feet on the ground. Then dad, skin sis and the grand did some tubing and mom watched. She knows she would be really hurting if she tried that! The tubing was nice to do and not be freezing like in the winter time. There was some rain so it sped the tubing up a bit till the sun came out and dried it up and slowed it down then. At least the parronts wasn’t gone all day and was home early too today. “Some fids come into our lives and quietly stay.

Well I am getting the hang of this new play gym mom got me and its as big as my condo which is really nice. I am out when the parronts are home so the play gym is along side my condo. I can step over and climb up on the top perch and see out the little window. Chi chi’s condo was there and since mom took it down now my play gym is there. Mom does put it in front of the big triple picture window when she hangs up clothes outside so I can see her like she did with the old play gym. Yep I think I will keep this toy! LOL “Friendship isn’t a big thing, it’s a million little things.“ Thanks for being my friend, Gus. (RIP Chi chi).

  Hi Smoky
Well laying an egg is a sure way to know your a girl LOL. Mom thought Chi chi was a boy till she laid an egg too. At least with me no guessing LOL. Yesterday a big box came and mom dragged it in the house. I could tell it was heavy and heard her telling dad she would need help putting it together. It said Foster and Smith on the box so it must be something for a fid since there isn’t any other animals here. Mom had some of the pieces out and looks like a bird condo but mine is in good shape and I don’t need a new one so don’t know why she would order a new condo. “When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.” Leaving a big ole vote for you. Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi).

Mom and the skin sis and moms cousin and scrap booking friends all went to some scrap booking show the other day. Mom was gone a lot of the day and know she needed that but gave me lots of loving when she got home so I forgave her. Mom had ordered some things off the one gal at the show so she picked that up but I think she shopped a lot more then that with the packages she came home with! “Those fids we have loved never really leave us. They live on forever in our hearts and cast their Radiant Light on every shadow.” V4U your ekkie friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Chi chi flew to the rainbow bridge on 7-11. Thanks for all for your sympathy on the passing of my fister Chi chi. It is really appreciated and we are missing her very much. I know she was met at the Rainbow Bridge with all her friends on BC that has went before her so that helps the pain some too. We are just happy to have such great support from our BC family and couldn’t of gotten thru this with out you all! “Look to this day for Yesterday is but a dream and Tomorrow is only a vision-but today well-lived makes every Yesterday a dream of happiness, and every Tomorrow a vision of hope.” V4U your kissing cousin, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Wow didnt know you had plans to move! Hope you like your new house and are settling in well. My favorite time is when mom sits down on the couch and I get off my condo and go to visit with her. Most of the time I just sit on the back of the couch making sure she stays right where I can see her. “Look to this day for Yesterday is but a dream and Tomorrow is only a vision-but today well-lived makes every Yesterday a dream of happiness, and every Tomorrow a vision of hope.” V4U your kissing cousin, Gus.

  Hi Smoky
Hope your dad had a happy fathers day too. Mom and her cousin was off to some craft store together yesterday. Guess some of their scrap booking friends were there and they just went to visit with them a shop in the store for some things a bit. Mom no more left and I was locked up in the condo but then dad came home so I was left out again so that was good. Dad says I am a bit loud though when mom isn’t in my sight and he keeps saying shhhhhh !! “Live in love it will make your heart bloom like a flower…each petal touching someone”.

  Hi Smoky
After mom got breakfast for her and dad and us all settled she said she was going to a bird show and I was suppose to be good and she would bring me something back. Now am I ever bad?? Well its best not to ask Chi chi that question but I did get a toy when mom came home. Chi chi thinks there is more downstairs and we did hear bags rattling so next time I am down there going to have me a look and see. LOL. “A friend is a gift whose worth cannot be measured, except by the heart.” I just stomped on your votey button too! Your fid friend, Gus.

Yesterday was very hot and humid and mom and dad went to watch the one grand at the softball game. The team didn’t do well but its no wonder with the weather. As soon as the game started almost the grand got hit in the leg with the ball when she was up for batting so that put a damper on things too. She is fine and put ice on it right away and just has a black and blue mark now. Mom and dad were in the shade of some trees but they didn’t look too great and mom kept worrying a limb was going to break off and she got bit by a bug on her arm too. Skin sis got a bit of a sunburn so it was one of them days mom said. “Happiness is making a bouquet with the flowers in your garden.” Leaving a vote for you too….Your kissing cousin, Gus.

  Hi Smoky
Mom said we are rubbing off on her cause she is ready for bed earlier and gets awake at day break but tries to go back to sleep. The tree that fell down on the trail a part of it came straight down and landed upright and sunk into the ground about 2’ and is a bout 25’ tall. Good thing it didn’t land on anything and happened when nobody was around there! Dad had to cut if off cause it was hung up on branches and the part stuck in the ground he left it at about 3‘ high so it almost looked like a tree there stuck in the ground. Someone said they were coming down the road and saw lightening hit it. Dad said there is a mark on the tree almost the length of the tree where the lightening ran down it and took the bark off it too. “Friendship, like flowers, blooms ever fair, when carefully tended by dear friends that care.” Leaving a big old vote for you my friend….Gus

Yesterday morning mom said she had to go watch the clothes go around in the washer at the Laundromat. Shhheesh mom sure must have a dull life eh? She took the winter bed covers to the Laundromat to wash them cause she thinks summer has finally arrived. Mom backed down to the clothes line and got them out of the trunk and hung them out. Now the summer ones are on the beds again. Mom will turn around twice and it will be time to put the heavy ones back on again LOL. “Friendship, like flowers, blooms ever more fair, when carefully tended by dear friends who care.” V4U my friend, Gus.

Happy Mothers day to your mom. We had a great time at the derby yesterday and last night. Congratulations to all the winners on the horses and the hat contests too. You all did a great job and give yourself a pat on the back for winning. Thanks for Chyna (and all the others too) for taking the time to make this a fun time for us all and we really appreciate all the hard work too to make it all happen for us to enjoy. “A friend is a gift whose worth cannot be measured, except by the heart.” V4U ..your friend, Gus.xoxoxox

I guess mom is tired of flying around too cause she went to get her feathers cut last evening too. Pretty soon she was perming what she had left and I was yelling for her but dad said she wouldn’t be out till she was done. He said the stink was not good for birdies or him for that matter. We hung out together till mom got done then. “Roses are red, violets are blue, I just left a vote for you.” Your kissing cousin, Gus

  Hi Smoky
This morning mom had a few things to do around here and then she went to visit with her sister a while. She is here for the summer and usually comes back but didn’t last summer so mom didn’t see her for a long time. Moms sister used to live in Wyoming but sold the ranch and outfitters business when her husband retired from the soda mine. Now they spend the summers in Pennsylvania and the winters in Arizona. Mom sure was happy to see her again and making plans to spend some days together again. “May joy in full measure, rain down on your way, and all that gives pleasure surround you today.” V4U..Your little green friend, Gus

  Hi Smoky
Mom usually gets in the walk/run race that is held on the trail every year. It was held yesterday and mom didn’t sign up for it right away cause she hadn’t walked much all winter and then when she did her back hurted so wasn’t sure if it would quit. By the time she thought she might sign up for it, it was too late. Now mom is glad she didn’t with the cold windy day we had here on yesterday and even saw sleet coming down a bit too! Dad helped with it and he came home and was froze and had a winter coat, hooded heavy sweatshirt and two shirts on so mom was happy to stay in the warm house. “Some people have asked mom how she can be friends with someone she has never met. Mom says they have never been on BC she bets and that about sums it up my friend.” Leaving a vote for you …Your BC friend,Gus

  Hi Smoky
Boy mom was out and about a bit yesterday. She went to the bird social at the warehouse and got to see Boo boo and Cori mom and also Falco, Willie and Giz mom too. Thought she would get to see Tia mom but didn’t so hoping some time again then. It got pretty cold here again yesterday but today is a little warmer now so maybe we are on a up hill slant again. “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune with out the words and never stops at all.” Leaving a vote for you…Your kissing cousin, Gus
