In two days I came away with a total of 6 ribbons. 4 first place ribbons, one 4th place and one 5th place ribbon. Could have won more but since my wings are clipped it held me back. When mom takes pics of me with my ribbons she is going to place them here on my page for all to see. She is so proud of me. Both my senegal parents were top show winning birds. Brother Maxi also won honorable mention for looking so good for his age of 15 3/4yrs.. ............. Met her at a bird fair. She took an instant liking to me and chose me as her new owner. I wasn't going to buy a bird but when she chose me, I just had to take her home. It was instant love!... ...HATCHDATE JAN 26, 2003..

  Hello SweetPepper~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I am so excited to har that Mikey and Kacey have bought the Pie Shop! I know they are going to love running it! I am looking forward to the Grand Opening!!
It's very cool that your mom got to go to a bird fair. Mom has never been to one. The only one she has seen near us is down in Portland. Perhaps she will get to go sometime but that will mean leaving me for the day! I'm not sure I like that. It's only about 2 hours down to Portland so maybe it would be for just part of the day! I'll have to think about that!
Dad got home yesterday evening so mom got up and went and picked him up. He said he wasn't going to make it up here until Wednesday but he ended up getting another load and was early. He had a doctor's appointment today so he was glad he didn't have to miss it. He has to deliver tomorrow so his days off won't start until Wednesday. Mom and the kids are going to see Avengers 2 on Thursday night but dad doesn't want to go. He rarely goes to the movies!!
Enjoy your day!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Sweetpepper & Kacey
Howdy friends, Mikey D here in the Wild West Ghost Town. I wish to thank everybirdie and their parronts for the kind words shared at the loss of my beloved wife-bird Queen Chuey. I miss her terribly and will forever love her, but I also know she is waiting for me to join her one day on that big cattle range in the sky. She would not want anyone to grieve for her too long, she lived each day to the fullest. Ride free my love till I see you again some day!
Hawk-eye stares wide-eyed at the Smith and Weston pointed his way, and slowly stumbles to his feet. One beady eye on Jesse,the other on the door, he cautiously walks towards the opening. At the last second he has a change of heart and makes a bolt for freedom, right into the chest of one Mr. Sky. Not to be trapped easily, he dives between Sky's legs and makes a dash for freedom.
Cappy, is getting bored guarding Black Bart, he hears all of the commotion going on outside. Not one to sit back Cappy checks to make sure the cell door it shut tight and walks outside to see if he sees anything when suddenly Hawk-eye runs smack-dab into him. Cappy grabs hold of the scruffy bandit as the two fly backwards onto the wooden sidewalk. Hawk-eye grabs for Cappy's pistol, but is too slow as Cappy rolls onto his feet so fast he sends Hawk-eye tumblin' over him into the water trough. Cappy lunges after him, pinning his prisoner in the water. "Now, come along nice-like or I'll show ya how hard a Too can bite"
Jesse stands stunned as everything unfolds. Seeing Cappy haulin' Hawk-eye along to jail, he rushes to where Miss Falco is standing smiling happily. "Oh Falco, you're safe. I was so worried they'd try to hurt you. I had to get free and save you my sweet girl" Jesse holds Falco close, thankful they are once more freed and save. Everybirdie on the street cheers when Jesse walks outside his wing around Falco protectively. " After a group-hug the Team matches the remainin' gang members into the jail house from the wagons, lockin' them away for safe keepin'
"You'll stay here. Beakerton Security officers are on their way here, to escort your sorry tail-feathers off to prison." Mikey D tells them before he turns tail and exits the Jail house. The Bird looks on from the top of the boarding house as Jesse breaks down the door of the General store to get to Falco. The Bird turns & disappears back the way he/she came. Ms BB puts away the few things she has & resumes her walk down the dusty windy trail to the ghost town. She can see birds moving in town but can not make out who they are. BB passes a cactus & it moves to walk next to her. Its The Bird in another costume. He/she tells BB about what has been going on in town, mounts her/his burro, & wanders off into the sunshine.
Sky sees BB walkin' in the distance and rides out to pick her up. "You missed all the fun Sweetheart!" he says as he reins in beside her. BB laughs and climbs up into the saddle, " do you think the horse might run outta hay

  Hi Sweetpepper
That's great news about the pie shop! Now it can stay open. We are hoping that someone will want to run the flower shop, too.
Last night we were in lockdown because mom, Aunt Gin, and Jessica went to dinner and a movie. They ate at Houlihan's, a local bar/restaurant, and saw Woman in Gold, with Helen Mirren. All 3 of them loved the movie, it was very good.
Today mom fed the bats again, and there are baby raccoons in the RVS room now so mom got to hear them crying while she was feeding the bats. The staff came in to feed them, so mom got to see a couple of them too. They are so cute, it's too bad they grow up to be such pests. Mom is hoping that the staff can get in touch with the folks that brought in 5 babies. They trapped them in their attic, but mom is still up there. My mom told the staff if they could trap the mom, they could bring her to the center and she can raise her own babies in one of the outdoor pens where they will be safe from human interference.
I hope you are having a good day today and getting some spring weather, cuddles and scritches. It's raining here. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Sweetpepper,
Mom says thanks. She has ta go and see the dentist again tomorrow.

He called her today to make sure she was okay if nit he would make her come into his office on a Sunday no doubt, what a great caring dentist and friend. :)

Well mom starts her day time job tomorrow so we'll hafta be on our best behavior.

I think we should just relax on the beach and soak up some sunshine, what do you think Cookie? Falco? I think we should lounge on our chairs with our fruity drinks and an umbrella in it, don't you? :)

Mom says no birdie is supposed to go off their tree and go walk about in the house, especially dads room. I think she meant me cause Pookie usually stays on his perch squawking at birds by the window.

Mom will leave work early tho to go to the dentist at 2 so hopefully she gets home while I finish my walk about. Tee hee hee :)

Here's a vote for you my friend.

Hope you have a great non-walk about day. :)

Love,

Laka and Pookie

Come visit me, Angel Sallykins, Pookie says I'm back chillin' in moms shirt. :) & Laka says more beach days for us, yay!!.

We should be in the upper 60's this weekend. We are about 10 degrees colder than you are. But, as long as we don't have rain, we are happy. last year we had the monsoons on derby day and all the guests were soaked!
It was a nice day, high 40's and partly cloudy. I was busy helping mom clean the house. I think my condo will get cleaned tomorrow. Our company comes on Friday.
Have a good night.
Hugs

  Hi Sweetpepper
last night mom put the flea drops on the cats and it takes a long time for the medicine to dry. since the cats like to roll around and sleep on the bedspread mom took the red bedspread off today to wash it to make sure no medicine was on it. she has another bed spread that is dark blue that she put on the bed. when i saw the blue bed spread i screamed and screamed because i didn't like it at all. mom said i was acting like a big baby about it.

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
THE BOUNCY BALLS DON'T BOUNCE THAT WELL ON THE CARPET--BETTER ON THE FLOOR IN THE KITCHEN WHERE MY PLAYGYM IS. I AM NOT SURE IF KIDDO HAS PLAYED WITH HIS BOUNCY BALLS OR NOT. THIS MORNING I MADE MOM CHASE AFTER THEM AS I DROPPED THEM ON THE FLOOR. SHE IS A PRETTY GOOD CATCHER. THEN WHEN SHE WENT BY GRANDPA, ALL 6 OF THEM WERE ON THE FLOOR FOR HER TO PICK UP. HEHE.

IT WAS NICE HERE, IN THE MID 50'S. SUNNY, TOO. I GOT NIPPY WITH MOM AGAIN, THOUGH, AND SHE WAS NOT TOO HAPPY ABOUT THAT. I WAS MUCH BETTER AFTER THAT LITTLE BOUT OF ATTITUDE. NOW AM ON HER SHOULDER DICTATING, AND NICE AND WARM...BEAK GRINDING TIME!

  Hi Sweetpepper
In those days people didnt sue like they do plus the dentist was just gone but nobody knew where. Many years later it was said he was an alcoholic and that is why he did that to the people at his practice to support his habit. It was rumored he was in asayasalem and then heard he was doing denistry in there. When skin sis graduated his son also graduated with her. Since that he has died. He was the school dentist and was married to moms music teacher. Moms sister had her teeth pulled at a young age and one of moms friends has all implants cause she of course went to him too as well as most in the neighborhood and all attended the same school too.
Yesterday mom and dad went up to the farm to visit a bit with dads brother since he is here to help his son on the farm. There were baby kittens and the mama was nice and let mom hold one and mom said it was so cute she thought I might like it if she bought it home. Then there was a pony in the barn she petted and it pulls a cart and is all black so its name is Midnight. Lots of chickens, goats and another pony (Midnights mom) and of course a few calves and lots and lots of cows and a few dogs too and cats too. Yep it’s a farm!! The milking was starting so mom and dad left to come home cause the parronts didn’t want to spook the cows and not give lots of milk or cause problems. “If there ever comes a time when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.” V4U. Hugs~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

MOM SLEPT IN THIS MORNING TILL 7:30, BUT THEN SHE DIDN'T GO BACK TO BED AFTER OUR BREAKFAST. HOWEVER I WAS STILL CALLING HER BY THE TIME SHE CAME IN WITH OUR FOOD. I DO NOT LIKE TO SLEEP IN. SHE STAYED WITH ME TILL IT WAS TIME TO GET READY FOR THE GYM.

BECKY REALLY WORKED MOM TODAY. THEY DID MINUTES IN CIRCUITS, BUT FAST REPS AND LOWER WEIGHTS. THEY DID SO MANY MOM WAS ACTUALLY SHAKING, SO THEN BECKY GAVE HER WHAT SHE CALLED A "LEG BREAK". AS IN NO UPPER BODY, BUT THE SAME CIRCUIT DEAL IN LEGS. AFTER THAT THEY DID A FINAL UPPER BODY CIRCUIT. MOM WAS POOPED BY THE TIME SHE WENT TO ZUMBA, BUT SHE WAS ONLY STAYING FOR 45 MINUTES ANYWAY BECAUSE SHE AND HER FRIEND WERE GOING TO SEE THE NEXT PLAY IN THEIR SEASON TICKET SERIES.

SO AS SOON AS SHE GOT HOME FROM THE GYM, SHE JUMPED IN THE SHOWER AND THEN SAT WITH ME TILL IT WAS TIME TO LEAVE FOR THE PLAY. IT WAS FROST/NIXON, AND SHE REALLY ENJOYED IT. SHE HAD NEVER SEEN THE MOVIE, BUT SHE SURE REMEMBERS WHEN NIXON AND WATERGATE WERE GOING ON. AND THE MAN IN THE SEAT NEXT TO HER WAS THE DIRECTOR! HE FILLED HER IN ON SOME INSIDE STUFF BEFORE THE PLAY STARTED, SO THAT WAS PRETTY COOL.

AND AS SOON AS MOM GOT HOME SHE CAME IN TO SPEND A HALF HOUR WITH ME BEFORE BLOGGING. I AM STILL NOT GETTING TO DICTATE MY BLOGS FROM MOM'S KNEE, BECAUSE I CANNOT RESIST THE LURE OF THE DESK DRAWERS. YOU WOULD THINK MOM WOULD BE HAPPY THAT I AM LEAVING THE ANTIQUE DRESSER ALONE, BUT THAT WOMAN IS NEVER SATISFIED!

  Hi Sweetpepper & Kacey
Howdy friends, Mikey D here. Seems we have ourselves a situation goin` on here in the Ghost Town. With Miss Falco taken hostage by Hawk-eye, and Jesse still missin' there didn't look like much more could go wrong. Well, that was until we were set to bust down that General Store door. Jesse clicks to Sundancer, urging her to move even faster as the Ole Town comes into view, " come on girl, we gotta save Falco!" As they round the bend in the trail Jesse glimpses the scene taking place out in the street. Those mangy birds who'd kept him hog-tied at the mine had beaten him here, and were now holding the BC team at gun point. He reins Sundancer in, and leaps to the ground boltin' to the shadows of the empty black-smiths shop. He peers around the corner to get a better view.
"Jesse" a whisper startles Jesse to his feet like lighten' " it's me THE BIRD" the familiar face steps into the light. "I been hiding' out here, tryin' to figure out what to do to save everybirdie."
"I gotta plan. We're gonna make a distraction. There's only two of them, and when they look to see what's happenin' the Team can take them easily." Jesse explains his plan to THE BIRD. They set off to put the idea into action.
"Bird was I a dumb bird!! I scared off all the guards horses then I gave Jesse Sundancer to get to town fast & help save Ms Falco." BB says as she walks down the hot, dusty trail. "Good thing I have my canteen full of water with me. Its going to be a long dusty walk back to town."
Kaji, Lizzie and Gus stand among the Team, when out of the corner of their eye,they see Jesse and THE BIRD on top of a nearby building, "Ugh you gulls are scruffy, icky characters, aren't ya? I guess you can't help being gulls, but couldn't ya be good gulls?" Kaji says loudly. This gives Jesse the opportunity he needs. Suddenly the street is alive with noise as gun powder filled walnut shells explode everywhere. The two villainous scoundrels wipe round to see what was goin' on. That is all it takes for the Team to move in on them.
Pearl leaps onto the wiry small one's back knockin' him to the dirt. Willie and Peppino grab the tall, rangy Gull. The crowd cheers happily as their would-be captors stand pinned in place. " OFF TO JAIL for you" Mikey D says, pointing his six-shooter in their direction. Kiddo and Hulk escort their "friends" to the jail house to deposit them safely into a cell with Black Bart and his other cronies.
Jesse thunders down the back stairs of the hotel building, his gun drawn, as he bolts across the street towards the door to the General Store. Leaping into the air, talons ready he busts through the door sendin' Hawk-eye flyin' across the room, caught unprepared by Jesse's sudden arrival. "FALCO!" he yells as he sees her smiling at him. " You, rag-mop-bird get up, move it!" He points his gun at him. Don't try anything."

Today is beautiful, sunny but still kind of cool. Mom has 2 public tours at the museum today in Dinosaur hall. She was hoping to get some outdoor work done, but now that she's showered, she will dress for work instead. Later she is going to see Woman in Gold, the movie with Helen Mirren. It hasn't had great reviews, but she likes the cast.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of love and scritches. Hugs, Falco

We are having a light rain now. But, they say that Mon thru Sat will be 50 to 60 with sun. I sure hope so for the party.
Thanks for voting for Chico. I've been voting forever to get him to the 10K. There have only been a few others voting along with me. I don't know why the mom stopped coming on to blog? Should we put a notice on the calendar page to vote for Chico?
The sun was shinning and we had a windy 50 degree day. Dad put the patio furniture out, this is good! My beach chair is ready and my shades are on. I hope this continues thru derby weekend.

  Hi Sweetpepper & Kacey
Mikey D here, sorry I'm rather in a hurry. We're closin' in on the bird-napper who has taken Miss Falco. Havin' scanned the Ghost town building by buildin' we knew where our friend was being held. Standing together in the middle of the empty, dirt street we glimpsed a ratty hat peerin' out the window of the General Store. The 'tiel frothers, Pearl and Silver are worried about Falco. However, they know how feisty, clever and brave she is even if faced with a hawk-foe." He's the one that better be careful and not underestimate Falco just 'cause she's a hen!" they exclaim angrily.
"We need a plan, we're gonna bust in and save our friend." Mikey D says a frown on his brow.
"I Guess I showed you what for!" Falco grins and awaits her rescue. She knows her friends will be there soon to free her. The look on Hawk-eye's face tells her that he also knows they're comin' for him. He begins to pace nervously, making sure he stays well away from Falco. He won't that happen again.
Kiddo looks across the street at the store, and says "Falco is not a birdy to submit peacefully, and by the time we catch up with them I am thinkin' she will have that nasty ol' hawk tied up in knots!" This causes an loud laughter to erupt from the team as they study the situation.
Jesse smiles as he sees BB slip into the entrance of the mine. She crouches low and makes her way in the shadows to where Jesse is sittin' tied up like a Christmas gift. Pulling her knife, she quickly cuts the rope and the pair make their way out the door of the mine, and wind their way up the hillside to the boulder.
"My horse is tied yonder," BB points in the direction, " you go, I wanta wait here for our friends to return. They've bird-napped Miss Falco!"
Jesse's eyes become pinned with anger. He doesn't waste a moment to say good-bye, as he bolts towards the horse. "I must save Falco!"
Riding like the wind, Jesse urges Sundancer into a fast gallop towards the ghost Town. His mind is filled with thoughts of saving Falco from the clutches of that dirty, rotten Black Bart and his gang of misfits. Someone was gonna pay for this.
Mikey D and Sky take a dozen friends as they begin to move to burst in the front door, others go to take the back door. Inches from the door they freeze. The sound of gun fire ricochets through the town. "'DON"T YA MOVE A WING MUSCLE PARTNERS!" the growling voice of the tall gangly Gull stops everybirdie cold. " Now move away from that ther' door pronto"
"We got 'um boss, we got good" the wiry small bird says, clapping his wings happily in excitement.
Falco hears the commotion outside the door, and grins, "told ya they were goin' for me!"
"Hush now" Hawk-eye says, wavin' his wing in her direction as he presses his ear to the wall to hear better.

Mom only has about 3 teeth that arent crowned. Yep almost all of hers have crowns on now. As a child she had a rip off dentist so he drilled and filled when it was not even a cavity and did that to everyone in the neighborhood till he was found out and by then mom had all her teeth done!
Today was another too cold day out for me to go out for a sunbath so I helped mom in the house today. We cleaned out the cupboard under the sink. I sat on the chair and watched but didn’t see anything at all interesting under there. Mom has some tomatoes on the kitchen sink window sill and every once in a while I fly over and take a bite of the one. Yet mom puts any my bean/rice meal I wont eat it. “If there ever comes a time when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.” V4U. Hugs~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

THERE ARE ACTUALLY THE SAME NUMBER OF GENTS AS LADIES ENTERED IN THE HAT CONTEST: 15 OF EACH. I HAVE TO ADMIT IT SURPRISED ME AS WELL. I AM SURE IT WILL BE A VERY TIGHT RACE WITH SO MANY PICS TO CHOOSE FROM. HOPEFULLY WE WILL GET LOTS OF BIRDIES VOTING. YOU MIGHT WANT TO ADD A REMINDER TO VOTE IN TO YOUR BLOGS EVERY SO OFTEN.

IT IS STILL CHILLY HERE, AND ALTHOUGH WE HAVE BLACK CLOUDS OVERHEAD NOT REALLY MUCH TO SPEAK OF IN THE WAY OF RAIN. DAD SAYS THE SKY IS JUST SPITTING EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE. THAT JUST SOUNDS NASTY TO MOM AND ME.

MOM MESSED UP MY MORNING ROUTINE TODAY. WHEN SHE CAME IN MY ROOM AFTER HER NAP, SHE TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT CLEANING MY PLAY STAND WITH THE TREAT CUPS AND GIVING ME MY PELLETS AND A NUTRIBERRY FOR MY BARREL O' FUN. NEEDLESS TO SAY I SCOLDED HER THE ENTIRE TIME ONCE SHE REMEMBERED. IT TOOK THE NUTRIBERRY TO CALM ME DOWN.

HOWEVER IT WAS A NICE DAY AFTER MOM AND DAD GOT HOME FROM GROCERY SHOPPING. NOT ONLY DID MOM ASSURE ME THEY FINALLY GOT SOME NICE GRAPES (YAY!), BUT DAD BROUGHT ME A KIDDO-SIZED TATER CHIP WHICH MOM GAVE ME TO EAT. I AM NORMALLY A PRETTY MESSY EATER LEAVING LOTS OF CRUMBS, BUT WITH CHIPS I ALWAYS PICK UP EVERY LITTLE PIECE THAT DROPS. THERE IS NEVER ANYTHING LEFT OVER AT ALL. I DIDN'T GET A SUNBATH BECAUSE THE WARM UP DOESN'T START NOW UNTIL TOMORROW, BUT ANY DAY WITH A CHIP IN IT IS A GOOD ONE!

Our Rainbow, a calico, lived to be 21, and died a few years ago. She was really cool. Mom's sister had a grey and brown tabby that she really liked, so mom is hoping she will find another kitten soon. Pepper has been gone nearly 2 years now.
Here are our numbers: I have 26,393 votes, Willie has 16,991, and Peppino has 4642.

Don't forget to vote for your favorite lady's and gent's hats on the milonga page from now to May 7. You can get there through the big hat avatar in my aviary if you don't have the page number.
Okay, this cold weather has to stop soon! Mom was going to work in the garden today, but it's only low 40s outside right now, and really cloudy. If the weather changes, she'll have some time to work outdoors, but if not, I guess it's only laundry today.
That's fine with me, because I'll get to help out by dive bombing those towels to make sure they're fluffy and warm, and walking all over the socks to make sure they look good.
I hope you have a good day, with spring weather and lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hey Sweetpepper,
As morning approaches the smell of bacon and eggs permeates the air and every birdies nares as they awake in a hungry stage. Their bodies still sleeping but the smell of food being cooked over an open fire kinda wakes up their hungry belly.

Pookie along with Cookie and Laka float towards the smell of food cooking along with the other birds as they slowly awake from a blissful nights sleep.

They look on the buffet table and breakfast is ready for who ever is hungry.

The bacon and eggs and blueberry pancakes awaken the sleepiest birds.
Mom says the plates are on the table along with breakfast so help yourself.

Pookie eyes the blueberry pancakes as that is his favorite. Laka looks at all the fruit. Pineapple, mango, papaya bananas and fresh blueberries too.

Wow what a spread!! Every birdies beak us watering just looking at all the food.

There's guava, orange, pineapple, apple and lilikoi juice and hot cocoa too if you want.

Everyone starts piling the food on their plates.

Mom had a tooth pulled on Saturday so that's why we're extending the beach time. Today she went back to the dentist as she kept having pain and sure enough it was a little infected. :(. He shot her twice to clean up the wound where the tooth was pulled, but while doing that mom could feel pain. The injection had worn off which is unusual so he gave her another shot and this time mom was all numb and dumb. She has ta go back again tomorrow to check on the boo boo as it tastes terrible this medicine. What ever mom eats or drinks she tastes the medicine. So hopefully it will be better after tomorrow.

So for now its still beach time guys !!! Everyone yells yeah !!!

Boogie board time yells Cookie and Pookie who race to the water after breakfast while Laka and Chyna decide to just lounge around and catch some rays.

Here's a vote for you and another happy day at the beach!

Love,

Pookie and Laka

Come visit me, Angel Sallykins, Pookie says I'm back chillin' in moms shirt. :) & Laka says more beach days for us, yay!!.

I hope we get some nice weather soon ... and it stays! Mom is worried about her Derby Party next weekend. Last year it was a downpour!!!
At least it didn't snow today.
It was a good morning at the perch today. We had sun and it melted the snow. But, that cold wind came back.
We need some warm temps up here!

  HI SWEETPEPPER
thats why they always say don't plant flowers til after memorial day. we are still getting the tiny snowballs. moms sick and doesn't feel like doing anything. even when we were having the warmer weather mom was feeling very cold which she thought was strange. 70degrees outside and mom was freezing. last night when mom went to bed she couldn't get warm and kept feeling colder and colder. she also felt very nauseous. when she woke up this morning she still felt cold and just felt plain rotten. tonight she has a nasty sore throat and all she wants to do is sleep. she must have picked up a virus.

The pool still has the winter cover on it and hasnt been opened yet so the ducks swim on top where the water from winter has laid.
Guess mom got the alarm off on the projection clock and wonder of wonders the parronts woke up this morning and the time was right on so it did set it self right too!! Mom left here a little after 10 to go to the dentist for her scheduled teeth cleaning and exam. Here her eye tooth filling broke off and there was decay across the tooth. It would of taken a big filling to fix it and probably would of not stayed in long either. Mom decided to get the tooth crowned. She got it all prepped today and a temporary cap on it till the real one comes in. Mom says she is glad that part is done cause it’s the worse of the whole procedure. She was gone 4 hours so was happy dad was home for me. Sure glad I have a beak and not them teeth!! “If there ever comes a time when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.” V4U. Hugs~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

STARTED OUT OKAY THIS MORNING WITH SUN AND STUFF, BUT IT NEVER GOT PAST THE 40'S, AND THEN THE CLOUDS CAME IN. MOM DECIDED TO DO GROCERY SHOPPING TODAY RATHER THAN WAIT TIL TOMORROW WHEN WE ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE RAIN ALL DAY. SO SHE DID. I HAD FUN WHILE SHE WAS GONE, BOUNCING MY SUPER BOUNCY BALLS ON THE FLOOR. WHEN SHE CAME HOME SHE HAD TO PICK THEM ALL UP (8 OF THEM). SHE BROUGHT ME BACK PEAS AND CARROTS AND FRESH PAPAYA. YUMMY STUFF FOR SURE!

WISH I KNEW WHERE SPRING IS. I THINK IT PACKED UP AND MOVED SOMPEPLACE ELSE. WHAT DO YOU THINK?

HAVE A GREAT REST OF THE DAY, AND WING HUGS COMING AT YA!

THAT IS JUST TOO COLD FOR APRIL! ALTHOUGH MOM MOVED FROM MD TO CA BECAUSE OF A SNOW STORM IN APRIL BACK IN 1970. SHE SAID IT WAS JUST WRONG, AND SHE WASN'T GOING TO TAKE IT ANY MORE! OF COURSE, THAT WAS LONG BEFORE I CAME TO LIVE WITH HER. SHE NEVER EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT BEING OWNED BY A PARROT BACK THEN! NOW SHE HAS WISED UP A BIT.

IT IS STILL TOO CHILLY HERE FOR A SUNBATH. THEY PREDICTED A HIGH OF 65, BUT IT HASN'T GOTTEN ABOVE 59 YET TODAY. TOMORROW WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A LOT WARMER, BUT NOW THEY ARE SAYING 69 FOR A HIGH. HOWEVER SUNDAY AND MONDAY ARE LOOKING LIKE 80s! SO YOU CAN BET I WILL BE OUT THERE SUNNING THEN!

THE VOTING BEGINS TODAY, AND THE FINAL COUNT FOR HAT ENTRIES IS 30! WE HAD THREE LAST MINUTE ENTRIES FROM TAZ'S FLOCK, BUT SINCE AUNT GAIL IS NUMBERING THE PICS SHE DIDN'T MIND AT ALL! I AM SURE BOTH YOU AND KACEY WILL DO WELL IN THE VOTING, BUT WITH SO MANY ENTRIES IT IS ANYBIRDY'S GUESS WHO WILL WIN.

MY MOM WAS AT THE GYM THIS MORNING, AND BECKY GAVE HER A REALLY TOUGH WORKOUT SINCE ZUMBA ON FRIDAY IS DANIELA WHO IS FUN AND DANCEY. ALTHOUGH MOM REALLY WORKS UP A SWEAT WITH HER, IT ISN'T A LOT OF SQUATS AND LUNGES LIKE YUMI AND JOLENE LIKE TO DO. WHILE MOM WAS DOING HER LIFTING, SHE GOT AN IDEA FOR A PIC OF ME WORKING OUT. WOULD THAT BE SOMETHING YOUR MOM COULD DO? MY MOM WOULD LOVE TO EMAIL A PIC LIKE THAT TO BECKY, HER TRAINER!

I WAS IN BITE MODE THIS MORNING, BUT MOM HEADED ME OFF AT THE PASS WITH A STERN "NO BITING!" SHE DOESN'T YELL, BUT JUST LOOKS ME IN THE EYE AND SAYS IT FIRMLY. I STOP EVERY TIME. SHE HAD TO SAY IT SEVERAL TIMES THIS MORNING, BUT OTHER THAN THAT FIRST FAKE BITE ON HER EAR (MORE OF A BEAK THAN A BITE), I BEHAVED. HOW BORING!

  Hi Sweetpepper
It's another cool day, in the mid 40s right now, but maybe it will be warmer next week.
Yesterday mom and her sis went to the President's Circle open house and reception at the Animal Rescue League. Between the shelter and the center, they treated over 12,000 animals last year! You already heard about the nearly 3000 wildlife animals and their success rate, and now here's the great news--ARL adopted out over 7000 of the 9000 animals they took in, isn't that fantastic? Mom's sis was glad there were no kittens in yet this year, but mom is hoping she will go back in a couple of weeks, when they will be inundated with kittens, and pick one up for herself.
This morning mom got to do the avian nursery. She was so glad to be somewhere other than the RVS room again. It was a real pleasure to clean bird cages and feed birds. There is a red bellied woodpecker in there right now, as well as robins, doves, and a waxwing. The center was very happy to accept mom's check for Peppino's hugs and kisses for $105. It will help a lot. Mom also signed up to do a tour there on Tuesday and to work the marathon event on Friday of next week. Hope she can just get a morning shift for that event.
I hope you are having a fantastic day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Sweetpepper & Kacey
HOWDY BC partners, Mikey D here as we ponder just how we're gonna save both Miss Falco and Jesse from the talons of some nasty outlaw member of Black Bart's gang. As we spread out to search every nook and cranny of this Old Ghost Town, Miss Falco is busy dealin' a nasty blow to her bird-napper.
"Oh, I am so angry about my friend Falco being birdnapped by that nasty ol' hawk. I can't wait to get my six-shooter pointed in his direction. We'll show him we don't take kindly to our friends being bushwhacked!" Kiddo shouts as he shoulders open the door to the blacksmith's shop beside the Livery stable. He and Angel-tiel bolt inside, guns at the ready. A group of birdies follow them inside as they check every inch of the ole' buildin' " nuthin' here, let's keep goin'"
Jesse can hear his bird-napper outside as they talk softly about what was takin' place back in town. He hears Falco's name mentioned and his anger grows. He tries to call out, but the cloth tied around his beak prevents him making a sound. He sits thinking for a moment then worried for Falco,
"I MUST get free and save Falco. That nasty, foul-smellin' Hawk's gonna find out who I am" with that Jesse begins to swarm and wiggle, working to loosen his bindings. He pulls and tugs and finally feels the ropes begin to give a little slack.
" Did that hurt?" Falco asks coyly, trying hard to find a grin, " a little ol' girl couldn't hurt someone as strong as you?" she giggles out loud, then seeing Hawk-eyes look, she stops with difficulty .
"You just be settin' there and behavin' Black Bart will be along right shortly to deal with ya and your band of goodie-two-shoes"
BB sneaks out the back door of the jail to do some lookin' around for Jesse on her own. "Maybe he is not even being held in this ghost town any more! There is a old mine shaft in the hills close by" so BB mounts Sundancer & heads out to do more scouting. Riding north, she works her way up towards the mine from the back end. Tying Sundancer to a bush she grabs her riffle from the scabbard and checks her six-shooter, then carefully makes her way to a large boulder just above the mine's entrance. There, she hankers down to listen carefully as she watches two of Black Bart's gang pacin' nervously back 'n' forth.
"We better leave Jesse here and go see to gettin' Bart outta jail." a small, wiry bird tells his partner, a gangly sea gull in ragged clothes. She sees his dirty hat nod, then both head towards the north east where their horses had been hitched. BB grins, "the horses are long gone towards the south west.' She chuckles softly to herself as she inches closer to the mine's entrance.
"If I were you I'd be lettin' me go mighty fast, my friends are headin' this way right now and it ain't gonna go well for you!" Falco tells her bird-napper. He peers out the dusty window, what he sees makes him cringe.

Wow, you are late tonight. Get some sleep. I'm having another night of very slow moving BC!
Yes, this is day 3 of new snow :(
Today was cold and windy with light snow and a high of 30 degrees. This is wrong! I'm protesting, I want 70 degrees! I had to drink my hot tea with my fuzzy slippers on. I should be wearing flip flops!

WE HAD SUN HERE, BUT STILL CHILLY IN THE 40'S. MOM WENT OVER TO SEE HER FRIEND KIM AND FIX HER TABLET COMPUTER. THEN KIM GOT A LETTER SAYING HER MEDICARE ADVANTAGE PLAN WAS NOT APPROVED CUZ SHE DID NOT SEND INFO IN. SO THEY CALLED THE COMPANY, AND THE COMPANY SAID THAT THE SOCIAL SECURITY NO. WAS NOT ENTERED CORRECTLY, THAT THEY SHOULD CALL MEDICARE. SO THEY DID. AND MEDICARE SAID THAT THE NUMBER WAS JUST FINE, AND SHE HAD THE INSURANCE SINCE APRIL 1ST, AND CALL THE INSURANCE COMPANY BACK, SO THE COMPANY MUST HAVE ENTERED SOMETHING IN THEIR SYSTEM WRONG. SO THEY DID AND SUDDENLY EVERYTHING WAS FINE. SHEESH. THAT WAS SO WEIRD. THE COMPANY NEVER SENT OUT HER CARDS EITHER, SO THOSE ARE ON THE WAY. UNREAL.

SO WHEN MOM CAME HOME, I WAS NIPPY. SHE HAS A BEAUTIFUL "V" ON HER FINGER FROM MY BEAK. SHE BROUGHT HOME SOME WONDERFUL CHILI THAT KIM'S HUBBY MADE. GOT SOME AND IT WAS YUMMY. GUESS SHE MUST HAVE FORGIVEN ME, HUH?

NOT MUCH ELSE GOING ON, SO WILL WISH YOU A GOODNIGHT, AND BEAKY KISSES AND WING HUGS TO YOU AND YOUR MOM!

Well the neighbors pool is a swimming pool and he still has the cover on so that is good since the ducks got in it. Imagine he isnt too happy they get in his pool either.
Mom has a projection clock in the bedroom that shows the time and temperature on the ceiling. Now mom watches that thing a lot during the night and the temperature just has lines there the last two nights. Today she was on a mission to fix it. She changed the batteries in the clock though it is electric guess it still needs them too and changed the batteries in the transmitter outside. After putting the 5 new batteries in it still wasn’t working right so dad messed with it a bit and said he had it fixed. Well the time is wrong and now the alarm keeps going off this evening but I think mom got that fixed. Dad says maybe the time will change on its own after a few days so we shall see if that happens or not LOL. “If there ever comes a time when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart.

I THINK IT IS TOO COLD HERE, BUT IT IS MUCH WARMER THAN MOST OF MY BIRDY FRIENDS AROUND THE COUNTRY INCLUDING YOU, MY DARLING. WE ARE JUST CLOUDY AND COOL WITH A HIGH OF 65 WHICH IS NOT WARM ENOUGH FOR ME TO GO OUTSIDE. HOWEVER IT IS A HECK OF A LOT WARMER THAN YOU ARE SEEING, AND KAJI AND CHYNA BOTH HAVE SNOW, FLITZER TOO. I HAVEN'T SEEN DIXIE'S BLOG YET, BUT I BET IT IS SNOWING THERE AS WELL. YIKES! HOWEVER THE REASON MOM MOVED FROM MD TO CA BACK IN 1970 WAS BECAUSE OF A BAD SNOW STORM IN APRIL. SHE JUST PICKED UP AND PACKED IT IN. OF COURSE, SHE HAD A BROTHER LIVING IN SANTA MONICA, SO THAT HELPED A LOT.

I HAD A VERY NICE LUNCH WITH MOM, AND JUST TO TEASE HER I ATE ANOTHER LITTLE PIECE OF SPINACH! SHE FIXED STEAMED FRESH SPINACH FOR LUNCH ALONG WITH ANOTHER BOWL OF GUMBO. AND THIS TIME I ATE EVERYTHING IN THE GUMBO, NOT JUST THE RICE. WELL, I DIDN'T TOUCH THAT NASTY OKRA, BUT IN MY OPINION MOM IS WELCOME TO IT.

THE ENTRIES FOR THE DERBY HAT CONTEST CLOSE TODAY, AND THE VOTING STARTS TOMORROW. AUNT GAIL SHOULD HAVE ALL THE PICS NUMBERED BY THEN SO EVERYBIRDY CAN JUST VOTE FOR THE NUMBER OF THEIR FAVORITE PIC. IT IS ONE VOTE PER FLOCK IN EACH DIVISION, GENTS AND LADIES. WE HAVE 27 ENTRIES SO FAR, UNLESS SOMEBIRDY ELSE ENTERS TODAY.

  Hello SweetPepper~
I hope you are having a fantastic day! We are getting mom ready to head back to work tonight. She'll have to work 6 days this week but then she will have a 3 day weekend! YAY! They are going to go see Avengers II! I will have to wait for the DVD since I hear that movie theaters are not a good place for birds!
I have been busy this morning deleting birds from the hatchday list and the memorial list. I usually delete a bird who has not been on BC for a year since I figure after a year they probably aren't coming back. Today I had several request from flocks to delete their names. Some of their pages have been deleted also. They have other projects they are going to be working on and will not have the time for the BC right now. If you see a friend missing from the list, I did not mess up, it was just a request from the flock!
I hope your day is spectacular and that you get to do lots of fun things!!

  Hi Sweetpepper
Mom saw SNOW on her way home from the museum today! Really, snow!!! It's chilly out there, and gray and cloudy, but who thought snow would show up? Hope it starts feeling like spring again soon, and not fall.
This morning mom only had one tour at the museum, and it was a lot of fun. The group was second grade again, but they were cute and there were only 8 in the group so that made it easy. It was an animal tour, too, and mom got to start in birds just the way it should be, haha. Later this evening mom is attending a donor event at the Animal Rescue League Shelter. They do this every year, and mom likes to go because it gives her a chance to socialize with some of her colleagues that she doesn't see very often. Her sister is going with her this year, too, so that should be interesting. It's been a couple of years since her sister lost a cat, so maybe she'll see somebody tonight that needs her to adopt him/her.
We were sad to read that the pie shop and the flower shop are going to close. We have fond memories of both of them, especially the pie shop, where we make deliveries twice a week.
I hope you are having better weather than we are, and that you are getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Sweetpepper & Kacey
Howdy partners, no time to be talkin' not with Black Bart heading with his gang to the ole' jail. Pearl and Silver smile " What a greyt feeling to be taking Black Bart and his cronies to lockdown (where they deserve to be) but we cowbirdies still don't have Jesse back." BB is riding out of the mountains towards the ghost town when she sees Falco being jerked into the general store. by a scruffy-lookin' Hawk. She slaps Sundancer on the shoulder and encourage her into a gallop as she winds her way towards the Ghost Town. "What foul deeds are going on now" she thinks. BB rides around town to scout things out & sees a strange horse out back of the general store. On the other side of town BB sees Boss D & the wagon crews putten Black Bart's gang in the jail house. BB enters the jails back door and tells every birdie what see saw at the general store. "It seems we have 2 birds being held hostage now"
Everybirdie turns around alarmed at the sudden sound of BB's voice. The news that Miss Falco has been bird-napped shocks everybird silent. "Oh no, not Falco! We have to rescue her from that awful hawk. I don't like hawks at all, ' Kiddo exclaims
Mikey D looks from Kiddo to Sky, then to the others searching for an answer. " We must move fast. Jesse and Falco are somewhere in town. "BART!," he growls angrily, " where ya got Jesse stashed? and NO! funny talk or you and your cronies are gotten be sorry!"
Black Bart begins to laugh, " now ain't ya all in a real bind? If' 'n ya don't set us free, you ain't findin' either Jesse or this Miss Falco either!" his eerie laughter echos in the old jail house.
"We have your gang hog-tied outside in the wagons. You make us a trade, we'll let ya have your lice-bitten hooligans back!" Sky says, an anger fillin' his eyes like a wildfire. Cappy marches Bart and his hooligans into the jail cell and locks them up, sittin' down to keep watch so there is NO jail breaks! " Ya' ll set outta here to search, find Jesse and Falco. I'll make sure our guests are all comfy-cozy."
The team bolts from the jail, spreadin' out to search for their friends, now held captive. Raffikki turns to Cookie and Pookie, " I bet Falco can hold her own!" they laugh a small worried laugh, then fly down the street to search in the livery stable.
Falco sits quietly, eying her captor. " Ya know they're gonna find me, and you'll end up gettin' your tail-feathers trimmed?" she grins straighten up under his angry glare.
" Now, no sassin' from ya missie" he yells walkin' over to within inches of her beak.
"Bad move buster" she yells, as she stomps down on his toes with her cow-girl boots, bitin' him on the wing at the same time.
"OWWWW" Hawk-eye screams, hoppin' on one foot, holdin' his wing with the other."Now, you're gonna get it, no more carryin' on!"
