Hi Everyone, I have some great news to share with you all. I was entered into my very first ever bird show by my birdsitter/bree- der. I was in the novice division for senegals. 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..

  Hi SweetPepper
I'm so sorry that your mom couldn't enjoy her concert! I hate that when people scream in your ear! One time, mom was sitting up front and a girl ran up to the stage and kept pushing mom who was sitting in her seat. The ushers wouldn't do anything ...grrr!
It was a beautiful sunny day. It got up to 59 degrees at one point but it was chilly because of the wind. The sad part is the huge gathering of Canada geese in Walloon Lake. They were resting on the way down south. Mom was asking them not to go unless they take her with them. I hope I get to go too! Fly Away Home music begins ...........

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
I THINK THAT PICTURE IS JUST THE BEST.

WORK WENT BY FAST, AND MOM WAS GLAD. SHE IS HOPING THIS NEW PROJECT IS GONNA BE GOOD, AND THAT THE PRODUCT OWNER IS GOING TO TRY TO WORK WITH MOM. GUESS SHE IS HARDER TO GET ALONG WITH THAN THE WITCHY WOMAN. BUT SHE WILL TELL YOU TO YOUR FACE, NOT DO SNEAKY STUFF. ALL MOM WANTS IS TO GET THRU TO NEXT YEAR AND THEN SHE CAN QUIT IF THINGS ARE NOT GOING WELL....AND TAKE EARLY RETIREMENT. SHE WOULD LIKE TO KEEP WORKING THERE, BUT IT IS HARD WHEN YOU CAN'T WIN NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO. THE BIG BOSS SAID TO HAVE MOM'S BOSS START CHECKING TO SEE IF SOMEONE CAN USE MOM ON THEIR PROJECT IN CASE THINGS GO SOUTH. MOM WILL HAVE TO CHECK TO SEE IF THE AGENCY HAS ANY RECOURSE IF MOM WOULD GET BOUNCED OUT OF HER JOB, AS THEY SIGNED THE CONTRACT FOR A YEAR. HER BOSS TOLD HER THAT THE OTHERS HE INTERVIEWED WOULD NOT HAVE LASTED AS LONG AS MOM HAS. SURE IS A VICIOUS GROUP OF WOMEN...AND HOW SAD, AS WOMEN SHOULD HELP OTHER WOMEN, INSTEAD OF BEING NASTY TO THEM.

OFF TO PERCH, SO WILL BID YOU AND YOUR MOM A GOOD NIGHT!

Oh I bet Garth would love that picture too with you and Kacey on him!
Mom put the bird cutout pictures on the bottom of my gallery!! This is the one mom bought at the craft show last weekend ones were wanting to see. Today was too cold to go out and in fact the sun never came out much if at all. Yesterday the cows were all out across the road in the pasture when I was out for my sunbath. One of them mooed at me and I mooed back at him. I kept my eagle eye on them since they are usually way out in the field and not down this way when I am out for a sunbath. Some are really big though. “Sometimes people ask mom how she can be friends with people she has never met and mom tells them then you have never been on bird channel I bet. That about sums it up to my friend” ~~ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Day 16--Kayaking Adventures
Good morning everyone, Angel Girl here with today's post. The afternoon turned out perfect for kayaking along the coast line. We stop for lunch in a sheltered cove, where within minutes we are able to visit a nationally known Seabird nesting site. Here Terns, Gulls and other species nest noisily in the rocky cliffs and along the shoreline. As we enjoyed our lunch the sounds from the nesting birds was difficult to hear over.
"WOW, I can't believe how loud they are" Popeye yells to Chyna only inches away. The two girls laugh as neither can hear one another.
"Look" Cydney says pointing to a family of whales surfacing not far off shore. She snaps several pictures before joining Willie, Kaji, Lizzie and Cookie as they hike to the nesting grounds with the others. " Yuck!" she looks down, and sees she'd stepped in Sea Gull poop, " OH no, my new shoes!" she looks sadly at the mess. The others giggle
"Snowy!" Sky calls, come here buddy wanta show you something " a lobster" they look at the large clawed creature staring angrily back from a shallow pool of water among rocks. Let's help him back into the ocean." Sky says trying to pick the snapping Lobster." Snowy grabs a stick and lifts him up as he clamps down. " not such a nice fella are ya?" he laughs as Sky and him gently lower him into the surf.
"AHHHHHH, babies" Little Angel tells Dixie, " aren't they cute." they watch the fledglings trying to rise into the sky as clouds of white take off from the shore. " doesn't it make you just wanta have a baby to love too?" LA gets all dreamy eyed. "Maybe we can adopt a baby bird?" she smiles sweetly watching the youngsters.
Boo Boo and Cori take photos of the birds in flight, as Chipper and BonBon draw pictures in their sketchbooks. Spot and a few of the boys take off into the sky flying with the Seabirds, screaming happily with them.
"Ok, sorry everybirdie but we must move on. We have lots more to see" Angel Girl calls loudly, trying to be hear over the roar of bird voices. Reluctantly everyone says farewell to their new friends, as they head to the shore and get their kayak ready to move on. The whales continue to swim close to the shore as the group paddles off. Angel Girl shares a little history of Cape Breton as they quietly paddle along.

In 1784, Britain split the colony of Nova Scotia into three separate colonies: New Brunswick, Cape Breton Island, and present-day peninsular Nova Scotia, in addition to the adjacent colonies of St. John's Island (renamed Prince Edward Island in 1798) and Newfoundland. The colony of Cape Breton Island had its capital at Sydney on its namesake harbor fronting on Spanish Bay and the Cabot Strait. Its first Lieutenant-Governor was Joseph Frederick Wallet DesBarres (1784–1787) and his successor was William Macarmick (1787).

Large-scale shipbuilding began in the 1790s. Shipbuilding peaked in the 1850s, marked in 1851 by the full rigged ship Lord Clarendon, the largest ever built in Cape Breton.

DAD SAYS WHEN DOCS SCHEDULE UNNECESSARY APPOINTMENTS LIKE THAT THEY ARE PAYING FOR THEIR NEW BOAT. I SUSPECT G-PA'S ONCOLOGIST HAS TWO BOATS!

MOM GOT ME OUTSIDE AT 8:30 THIS MORNING, BECAUSE WE ARE HAVING ANOTHER SCORCHER AT 104. THANK GOODNESS THE HUMIDITY IS LOW AT 29%, BUT THAT ISN'T GOOD FOR FIRE DANGER. IT WAS SO EARLY THE YARD WAS ALL SHADE WHEN WE GOT OUT THERE, AND MOM SET MY CARRIER ON THE SIDEWALK! IT WAS OK THOUGH, BECAUSE NOBODY CAME BY AND AFTER 10 MINUTES SHE WAS ABLE TO MOVE ME ON TO THE GRASS. IF ANYBODY HAD COME BY I WOULD HAVE ORDERED THEM OFF MY SIDEWALK LIKE I DO WHEN I AM IN MY ROOM!

THE RODEO IS SHAPING UP. WE NOW HAVE 8 CONTENDERS FOR RODEO QUEEN, SO TAZ'S MOM WILL START POSTING THE PICS WITH NUMBERS RATHER THAN NAMES SOON. THEY WILL GO UP IN THE MILONGA GALLERY. VOTING STARTS ON THURSDAY, SO THEY NEED TO BE BEFORE THEN. WE HAVE 5 MUTTON BUSTERS, AND 7 BARREL RACERS, AND COOKIE IS GOING TO DO ONE OF THEM BUT HE HAS TO CHOOSE WHICH ONE.

  Hi Sweetpepper
You look good, too! THanks, Aunt Rose did my pic for me.
Mom had a meeting today at the museum, so we are just getting online now. It was mostly about teaching new docents the rest of the halls. Mom had 2 years of training, but the docents who were hired in the spring only had training either in Dinosaur hall or in 3 cultures. Now they are worried that the new folks can't do tours in the rest of the museum. Anyway mom signed on to teach ecosystems, biomes, and animal adaptations, as well as possibly PA natural history. Hope they can use her expertise in some way or other.
Bree came by to do our birdicures yesterday and while she and mom were talking, mom mentioned that I am not as active with her as I used to be, and that I haven't really wanted a bath for awhile either. Bree looked at my injured leg and she thinks I might still have a fractured fibula, the little bone in the leg. So mom called Jill today to see if she can look at me and give her opinion, and maybe some vet wrap too.
I hope you are having a good day today, getting a lot of love and sunshine. Hugs, Falco

Thanks, mom will see them on Sunday night. One year, she went to 6 of their concerts ... lots of driving! She will go when ever she can.
Why won't your mom go to any more concerts?
We had a nice day of 55 with a little sun for a few hours. I was very busy playing all day. I did take time out to watch the blue jays and chippies eating peanuts on the patio. It might get a bit warmer with more sun tomorrow, I hope so. Hope you had a nice day.

  Hi Sweetpepper
Love the pictures but liked the ones with you and Kacey performing with Garth too LOL.
I know some of you don’t know a whole bunch about us ekkies but one of our traits is forever cleaning our beak off after we eat. Sometimes my water gets pretty messy so mom has to change it often and other times I wipe it off on what ever is handy when I am done eating. It can be a condo bar, perch, or this stone thing mom has on my condo porch, or this toy with sticks sticking out of it or my heater. Mom is forever cleaning those things off and it sort of dries on my heater so takes a bit of scrubbing to get it clean. Mom always says about what a mess I make it while she is cleaning it too. I think its good exercise for mom to have the extra chores I create for her to do though. It keeps her out of trouble too LOL. “Sometimes people ask mom how she can be friends with people she has never met and mom tells them then you have never been on bird channel I bet. That about sums it up to my friend” ~~ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

AH HA! YOU AND KACEY GOT IN ON THE ACT! THAT IS SO COOL!! I HAD NO IDEA YOU WERE UP THERE ON STAGE WITH HIM! (SMILES).

OH YEAH, MOM KNOWS ALL ABOUT HOW CRAZY PEOPLE DRIVE. WE HAVE LOTS OF CONSTRUCTION GOING ON NOW, AS SOME OF THE XPRESSWAY STRUCTURES WERE IN BAD NEED OF WORK, SO THEY ARE REBUILDING MOST OF THE ZOO INTERCHANGE. AND IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE 50 MPH. LOTS OF DRIVERS DO AT LEAST 60, OR FASTER. WISH THE SHERIFF WAS OUT THERE WHEN THEY DO. SCARY!

SUPPOSED TO GO DOWN TO 38 TONIGHT, WITH FROST TO OUR NORTH. WAY TOO EARLY FOR IT. GRANDPA SAYS THAT HE HAS A BUD ON ONE OF THE CHRISTMAS CACTUS'. THAT THING BLOOMS USUALLY FROM END OF OCTOBER THRU EASTER. THIS IS REALLY EARLY FOR IT. IT IS INDOORS, BUT IN A COOL AREA, SO MAYBE ALL THIS CHILLY WEATHER MAKES IT ACT LIKE IT WAS LATER IN THE YEAR.

THAT IS WEIRD. MY MOM AND DAD'S DOC HAS HIS NURSE CALL WITH THE BLOOD TEST RESULTS, AND THEN THEY MAIL A COPY OF THEM SINCE DAD KNOWS HOW TO READ THOSE THINGS AND LIKES TO MONITOR HIS. AS A MATTER OF FACT SHE CALLED THIS MORNING WITH THE RESULTS OF LAST FRIDAY'S TESTS, AND ALTHOUGH MOM'S CHOLESTEROL WAS DOWN TO 214 SHE STILL NEEDS TO WORK ON GETTING IT TO 200. DAD'S NEEDING A VISIT TO THE NEPHROLOGIST ABOUT HIS KIDNEY READINGS, SO HE WON'T BE HAPPY ABOUT THAT WHEN HE GETS HOME.

THERE ARE NOW 5 ENTRIES IN THE RODEO QUEEN CONTEST WITH ANOTHER "TO BE ENTERED" AS SOON AS BOO BOO GETS HER PIC DONE. SO IT LOOKS LIKE WE WILL HAVE A CONTEST AFTER ALL. THERE IS STILL ROOM IN THE MUTTON BUSTING AND BARREL RACING THOUGH. AND THE MORE THE MERRIER FOR THE QUEEN.

I DID GET MY SUNBATH TODAY, BUT MOM GOT ME OUT THERE AT 8:45! IT ENDED UP HITTING 104 YESTERDAY, AND TODAY IS JUST AS HOT. I KNEW THERE WAS A REASON I DIDN'T WANT TO GO OUTSIDE. WE ONLY STAYED OUT FOR 30 MINUTES, BECAUSE MOM WAS ALREADY GETTING WARM AND THEN THE TRASH TRUCKS STARTED RUMBLING THROUGH. THEY SCARE ME, SO MOM JUST PICKED MY CARRIER UP AND IN WE WENT!

  Hi Sweetpepper
Looks like you and Kacey had fun at the concert too, heehee.
Today Bree is coming for our birdicures. This morning mom cleaned the outdoor RVS pens for the first time in awhile. There are 2 adult coyotes out there in separate pens as well as 22 raccoons! Good thing the raccoons are social and don't mind sharing quarters, because the center doesn't have 22 cages out there! They can be housed in a few large cages, but those are real bears to clean, so it took mom over 2 hours for all the outdoor areas today. Still, it was nice to be out in the sun, even if it was cooler than we like.
I don't think we'll get out today, because it's not very warm again. In fact, it looks like it's gonna be cool all week long. I hope you are having better weather, getting some warm sunshine and especially getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Falco

SO FAR YOURS IS THE ONLY ENTRY IN THE QUEEN OF THE RODEO CONTEST. OF COURSE, I WOULD LOVE TO SEE YOU WIN, BUT NOT BECAUSE NOBIRDY ELSE ENTERED. HOPEFULLY THEY ARE JUST STILL WORKING ON THEIR PICS.

SOUNDS LIKE YOUR MOM HAD A GREYT TIME AT THE CONCERT IN SPITE OF THE AWFUL TRAFFIC. WHY DO PEOPLE THINK THEY HAVE TO STAND AT THOSE THINGS. MAKES IT HARD FOR THOSE WHO WOULD RATHER SIT AND LISTEN.

I DID NOT GET A SUNBATH TODAY, BECAUSE I JUST REFUSED TO COOPERATE WITH MOM EVEN WHEN DAD SHUT HIMSELF IN THE BATHROOM SO SHE COULD TAKE ME WALKABOUT WHICH USUALLY DOES THE TRICK. I WOULD SIT ON HER SHOULDER AND THEN CLIMB ON THE OUTSIDE CAGE, BUT TAKE OFF TO LAND ON MY BOOKCASE INSTEAD OF CLIMBING INSIDE. MOM TRIED FROM 9-9:30 AND AFTER 6 TRIES SHE JUST GAVE UP. ANY LATER WOULD NOT HAVE WORKED, SINCE WE HIT 101 TODAY. MOM AND DAD WENT TO WALLY WORLD THIS AFTERNOON JUST FOR THE A/C, AND OF YEAH A LITTLE SHOPPING. MOM BOUGHT A NEW COMFORTER AND PILLOW CASES FOR THE BED.

DAD GOT OUT AT 8AM THIS MORNING TO MOW THE LAWN. HE KNEW ANY LATER THAN THAT IT WOULD BE TOO HOT. THEN WHEN MOM AND DAD WERE PULLING INTO THE DRIVEWAY AFTER WW, THEY SEE OUR NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR DOING YARD WORK. HE IS A REDHEAD, SO MOM AND DAD BOTH CONCLUDED HE IS NUTS!

Today mom was up super early to feed us and the dogs, then get to an event on time. She thought she would have time to walk the furballs, but she didn't, so she's going to walk them when we are done with our blogs. The event was called Wild Rumpus, and there were 2 obstacle courses, one for adults that was 5km, and one for kids that was considerably shorter, as it was all in a field with a hill on it. There weren't as many people as mom thought there would be, but it was not well advertised and was competing with at least 2 other local events. It was damp and cool out, but mom was mostly dressed for the weather. She refused to wear real shoes, though, so her feet got cold in her sandals. Twitch the squirrel was pretty cute, though. He ate a couple of Brazil nuts which mom gave him as a challenge. She thought it would take him awhile to get through the shell into the nut, but he surprised her with his quickness.
I hope you are having a good day today, staying warm and getting cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Day 14--Inverness-Eagle Eye Kayak tour-part 1
Good morning everybirdie, Angel Girl with today's first Inverness adventure. As the red sun rises over the ocean we finish our hearty breakfast of toast, scrambled eggs, bacon and fruit served up by some of our handsome boy-birds. By the time the sun is above the waters edge we are riding off to begin today's fun tour. Our destination is Eagle Eye Kayak tours. We will kayak from Inverness Harbour along the warm calm waters of the Northumberland Strait. See the rugged cliffs, waterfalls and rocky coastlines. Watch the many Bald Eagles that frequent the area. Take a break for a snack on a secluded beach and look for beach glass or fossils. We will learn to and experience the peacefulness of paddling the spectacular coast and enjoying the natural beauty of the coastline.
"Everybirdie ready?" Angel Girls calls as we turn our horses out into the paddock, with plenty of hay and water. " we are off for a five hour adventure. Make sure to bring your cameras, water bottles and let's have some serious fun" Angel Girl waves her wing and leads off towards the shoreline where the instructors are waiting.
After an in-depth discussion on paddling, safety and making certain our life-jackets are on correctly, we are assigned a Kayak, and push out to sea. "Hey that sounds so cool. Out to sea!" Angel Girl giggles happily as she tries to balance in the kayak.
"Wee, this is fun" Rio yells to Kaji and Lizzie in the Kayak. " wow, don't move too much!" he tells Miranda in another Kayak.
"Look!" Jenny-Lynn points to a distant dark shape, " a whale" she shows Lalo and Sweetie, who stares in awe as the giant mammal surfaces int he far distance.
"Eagles!" Finnegan says, watching the majestic form above, " he's beautiful"
" Tango and Susan look down into the dark water seeing small schools of fish swimming by their Kayak"
"Oh Dixie, this is soooo much fun" Little Angel smiles eggcitedly, " I love kayaking" she paddles like a pro. Sky gives her a frown, as he and BB gain their sea-legs and stop their Kayak tipping side to side.
"Touchy things aren't they" Pearl cries as Silver and Peppino try to steady their wobbling kayak.
Finally we are all ready, and begin to dip our paddles into the calm ocean water. The kayaks move silently, some steadier then others as first-time paddlers learn how to do it. Before all have mastered paddling and off we head along the coast-line.
"A moose" Pookie calls out. A huge bull raises his head from drinking, and watches the birds paddle past. Ducks and Canada Geese flock along the waters edge, swimming along beside us as we go. " WOW, Swans." a group of thirty or more white Swans honk their annoyance of our intrusion. Polly and Falco snap pictures with their cameras.
" Everybirdie" Angel Girl yells out, " Seals" the coastline area is grey with seals. Their calls filling the air loudly. Many hurriedly dive into the water, coming closes for us to take pictures. " this is amazing!" Angel Girl takes lots of photos

  Hi Sweetpepper
Yes our mom says she sleeps better too when its cooler. Mom said she is going to throw another cover on the bed tonight.
Yesterday mom and dad went up to the farm since dads brother and sister are home for a while as well as dads brother in law too. I didn’t really care since it was a great day for napping with the colder temperatures. I got on my perch beside my heater in my condo and boy did that feel good. Mom and dad went out with everyone for dinner and from there mom and dad came home so they were home early. If this cold weather keeps up I am going to need to find my winter gauchies !! “You know you’re a bird person when your pockets contain more almonds then money.” Leaving a vote for you my friend… Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Day 13--Welcome to Inverness & its County
Hello everybirdie, Angel Girl here from Inverness, Cape Breton Island. Before we begin I want to ask that everybirdie continue in prayer. We have an urgent request from one of our BC family who wish to remain anonymous at this time. Their sweet baby is in critical, life & death crisis. Also our BC Queen Chuey is not feeling well, although there seems to be some improvement day so ask for continued prayers.
After a mix-up due to Chuey's need for immediate medical care, the wedding of Tiamaria Ganster to my frother Casey went on. It was to be rescheduled, sorry for the mix-up. They will be holding a reception later in the month to celebrate. Rev Spot did an awesome job of performing his very first Celtic wedding.
Now that we have relocated to Inverness ( Scottish Gaelic: Baile Inbhir Nis), a small rural community of approximately 3000 persons.

Located on the west coast of Cape Breton Island fronting the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Inverness sits astride a small coal seam which was exploited from the late 19th century to the mid-late 20th century, beginning with a mine opened by William Mackenzie and Donald Mann during the 1890s after they achieved control of the Inverness and Richmond Railway. Several more mines opened in and near Inverness during the early 20th century, but many closed following World War II with the last one closing in the early 1990s following a fire.

The community was incorporated as a town in 1904. It experienced economic hardship since large scale industrial coal mining ended; the local economy is now based mainly on fishing and tourism. Inverness Raceway was established in 1926, and harness races are held twice weekly between May and October. North America's only true links golf course, the (200-acre (0.81 km2)) Cabot Links is located on the former coal mine and overlooks beautiful sandy beaches. Inverness County is like an unspoken guardian of Cape Breton Island’s Celtic traditions. Its tiny communities are teeming with pride and a genuine way of life that has maintained Gaelic traditions throughout the years. There are many Celtic treasures and traditions waiting to be discovered in Inverness County, from its lively community dances to its well-known outdoor music concerts. The sunset side of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia seems to whisper all things Gaelic.

"WOW, this is so beautiful" Cinn-A-Bunn says taking in the panoramic view of Inverness and county. " Look at the ocean, how blue it is from up here on the mountainside." Zippy adds taking photos.

The birds take in the scene set out before them. Starting tomorrow they will be busily eggploring many interesting and fun adventures.

WELL, IT IS TRIPLE DIGITS TODAY AND WILL BE FOR FOUR DAYS, BUT AT LEAST IT IS RIGHT AT 100 DEGREES. POOR PANTHER IS EAST OF US, AND HE IS HAVING 107 TEMPS! I CAN'T EVEN IMAGINE. AND THERE IS LITTLE OR NO CHANCE WE WILL SEE ANY RAIN BEFORE OCTOBER, AND IN FACT IT IS USUALLY NOVEMBER BEFORE THE RAINS START.

MOM GOT ME OUTSIDE RIGHT AROUND 9:15 THIS MORNING. I WAS BALKING ABOUT STAYING ON HER SHOULDER TO CLIMB IN TO THE CARRIER, UNTIL DAD LEFT TO GO TO THE BANK. THEN WE COULD DO A WALKABOUT THRU THE HOUSE, AND I WAS FINE WHEN WE CAME BACK TO MY ROOM AND CLIMBED RIGHT IN. THEN WHEN WE WERE OUTSIDE MOM WENT TO WATER THE GARDENIA TREE, WHICH PUT HER BEHIND HER LAWN CHAIR. I STARTED CALLING HER, EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS TALKING TO ME. OUT OF SIGHT, MEANS SHE IS GONE! ANYWAY IT WAS A NICE SUNBATH, AND JUST IN TIME. MOM AND DAD WENT TO THE STORE AT 11, AND WHEN THE CAME OUT OF THE STORE AROUND NOON IT WAS BAKING OUTSIDE!

HOW IS YOUR MOM'S LEFT EAR DOING. I AM SURE THAT MUST BE NASTY HAVING THE DROPS DRAIN DOWN HER THROAT. THINK SHE WILL BE ABLE TO HOLD OUT TILL THE 30TH?

I AM SITTING ON MOM'S KNEE AGAIN WHILE SHE BLOGS FOR ME, BUT I BALKED AGAIN WHEN SHE FIRST INVITED ME TO COME WITH HER. SO SHE WENT AHEAD AND STARTED BLOGGING, BUT WHEN I CALLED HER AFTER A FEW MINUTES SHE CAME BACK TO MY ROOM AND GOT ME. I WAS PLAYING HARD TO GET, I SUPPOSE.

ANYWAY IT IS TOO HOT TO GO OUTSIDE NOW, SO MOM WILL BE HOME WITH ME FOR THE REST OF THE DAY. HOPE YOUR DAY IS BRIGHT AND SUNNY. WHICH I COULD SEND A FEW OF OUR DEGREES YOUR WAY.

YOUR WARM AS TOAST HUSBIRD,
KIDDO

  Hi Sweetpepper
You're right, of course. The cages are cleaned daily, and the cans where the dry food is stored are wiped off at the end of each day. They are trying hard not to be attractive to raccoons or rodents who are not patients there.
Mom walked the dogs in the rain today, but the showers are supposed to end soon. We'll see, the weather guessers are usually wrong. Mom had to pull out capris and shirts with sleeves for today. It's pretty cool out, high 50s, and not expected to do much better as the day goes on. Mom has public tours today in dinosaur hall, and she's hoping to cut her tour time to a real mini tour today, between 35 and 40 minutes. We'll see...
Tomorrow mom will be working the Wild Rumpus event for the wildlife center. She will be taking care of Twitch the squirrel. He won't be the only one there, though. There will be at least 4 animals and their handlers throughout the obstacle course. This is the first time they've done this, so mom doesn't know quite what to expect, except for 5 hours outdoors and minding Twitch.
We'll let you know tomorrow afternoon what happened.
By the way, Twitch is the perfect example of why people shouldn't keep wildlife in their homes. He came to us after being kept as a 'pet' in a small cage for over a year. He was really fat, his tail is twisted irreparably, and he has metabolic bone disease from not being fed the proper diet growing up. He's called Twitch because of his seizures, as well. The poor boy is destined to be an education animal for as long as he lives, instead of being a healthy outdoor squirrel.
Hope you are having better weather than we are, more sun, more heat... And I hope you will get lots of cuddles today, too. Hugs, Falco

Oh yes, it's freezing cold and so wet up here. The rain isn't stopping. I'm wearing my warm hoodie and UGG boots. I'm planning on spending the whole spa time in the hot tub on Monday!
It was just another cold, dark and rainy day. At least, dad turned on the heat this morning. Mom & I were frozen! Hope you are having better weather. It's time for hot chocolate and warm fuzzy slippers.

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
WELL WE GOT TO 48 DEGREES HERE AND RAINY, TOO. VERY CHILLY AND DAMP. MOM WAS BEAT LAST NIGHT AND WE PERCHED EARLY. SHE GOT UP AND TOOK THE CAR IN, AND WAS VERY HAPPY THAT IT WAS ONLY $80--OIL CHANGE AND BULBS OUT IN THE BLINKER AND RUNNING LIGHTS. WHEW. MOM WAS SO HAPPY TO BE OFF TODAY. IT HAS BEEN TOUGH TO GO INTO WORK THIS PAST WEEK. SO THE BREAK HAS BEEN GOOD FOR HER. SHE DID TALK TO THE PERSON AT THE CONTRACTING PLACE, AND SAID THAT SHE DOESN'T WANT TO CAUSE MORE PROBLEMS FOR HERSELF, BUT THAT WOMAN IS JUST NOT NICE, AND HAS NOT BEEN SINCE SHE STARTED THERE. WHY, MOM HAS NO IDEA.

HOPE YOUR MOM'S EAR IS FEELING BETTER. WITH THIS WEIRD COLD WEATHER, AND THE DAMP AND RAIN, IT SURE IS NOT GOOD FOR ANY KIND OF SINUS OR EAR ISSUES.

AND HOPE THAT GRANDPA IS DOING SUPER AFTER HIS SURGERY.

STAY WARM AND DRY!

Boy your mom is brave wearing the shorts when it turned cold. It got lots colder here and mom had jeans, long sleeve shirt, socks and shoes and a vest!! I think my mom is a bit wimpy LOL
Mom washed a few clothes this morning but most went in the dryer since its so cold here. Mom says it doesn’t look like any warm up even next week either. Guess that means I wont be outside for a while if at all. I am hoping the Indian summer shows up at least. “You know you’re a bird person when your pockets contain more almonds then money.” Leaving a vote for you my friend… Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  MY BEAUTIFUL WIFEBIRD
HOW IS YOUR MOM'S LEFT EAR FEELING TODAY? I HOPE IT IS NOT GETTING ANY WORSE, OR SHE WILL HAVE A TOUGH TIME LASTING TILL THE 30TH.

THE APPT WITH THE GI DOC WENT SO WELL YESTERDAY. SHE EVEN HAD A SLIGHTLY SHORTER WAIT, SINCE THE LADY RIGHT BEFORE HER GOT A PHONE CALL AND HAD TO LEAVE FOR A "DAUGHTR EMERGENCY". HOPE IT WASN'T ANYTHING SERIOUS. ANYWAY THE DOC WAS EXTREMELY PLEASED WITH MOM'S PROGRESS, AND HE SAID AFTER SHE FINISHES HER CURRENT PROTONIX SCRIPT (7 PILLS/7 DAYS) SHE IS DONE WITH THEM. HE LISTENED TO HER TUMMY AND POKED AROUND AND SAID IT ALL LOOKED AND SOUNDED GREAT. THIS TIF PROCEDURE IS SOMETHING FAIRLY NEW, SO HE WAS REALLY STOKED IT WENT SO WELL.

MOM GOT HER BLOOD TEST FIRST THING THIS MORNING SO SHE WOULDN'T HAVE TO FAST TOO LONG, AND BECAUSE OF THAT I DIDN'T GET MY SUNBATH. IT WOULD HAVE ONLY BEEN 15 MINUTES AND THEN SHE WOULD HAVE HAD TO LEAVE FOR HER TRAINING SESSION AT THE GYM. SHE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE OK WHEN SHE GOT HOME AT 11:15, BUT IT WAS ALREADY WAY TOO HOT. WE HIT 95 TODAY, AND THE WEEKEND IS SUPPOSED TO BE TRIPLE DIGITS BOTH DAYS. I THINK WE WILL BE GETTIN OUT THERE REALLY EARLY!!

  Hello SweetPepper~
I hope you are having a great time today! Mom and I both hope that mom and the grandparents are doing well.
I have been having some serious computer problems lately and it's is such a pain!!! It keeps stopping and crashing! We had to restart 7 times in one hour! Dad had decided that we are going to put all new inside in it. We built this one so we know how to do it. It's not hard but the software part can be tricky.
I've been going over to Kaji's everyday! It's so exciting that he is almost there. I have found a few birds like Willie who are over 15K now. I'm trying to keep up with the lists on the 10K page.
It's going to be some housecleaning around here today. Dad is home on a 34 hour break. He has a cold so he's been sleeping most of the time. I think he is feeling better now.
You enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Sweetpepper
Wow, that's great news for Gpa! I bet he's really happy. Hope mom is feeling better, too.
Mom went to the center today and got there just in time to see the USDA inspector arrive. They pop in periodically to check on the animals and the cleanliness of the building. Guess what he found wrong? A cobweb in the upper corner of the possum cage and some thistle seed(finch food) spilled on a storage can lid in the kitchen! Talk about picky! Anyway the center passed with flying colors, he even complimented us on how well the animals looked.
Mom cleaned the RVS room again today, then went on to the the birds, cleaning the raptor aviaries, the small flight aviary, the main aviary, and the screech owl's enclosure in the other building. It was a very busy day, but mom feels she got a lot done.
I think she plans to read today, using her new glasses. It will be a good day for that, since it's much cooler today than it has been for awhile, only in the low 60s. I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Falco

We are wearing warm slacks and a coat! No sandels for us up here! We "warmed' up to 48 this morning and afternoon.
What a cold and dreary day we had. The high temps were 48 to 52 degrees ... BRRR! I had to wear my hoodie to keep warm.
Today we remember all the people lost in the WTC, Pentagon and Shanksville PA ... keeping them and the survivors in our thoughts and prayers.

You mom sure is one tuff cookie! Dads sister left to go to the farm this morning. I liked sitting on Auntie and hated to see her leave but dad said she will come back again soon. I went to bed at my regular time last night so I wouldn’t be tired today. It was a good thing cause I had to help mom clean today.

MOM JUST GOT A CALL FROM SKY AND ANGEL GIRL'S MOM ABOUT THE RODEO, AND I TOLERATED HER BEING ON THE PHONE FOR A FULL FIVE MINUTES BEFORE I DEMANDED THAT SHE HANG UP. AREN'T YOU PROUD OF ME?

I POSTED A NOTICE ABOUT THE RODEO ON THE CALENDAR PAGE. I HOPE LOTS OF LADY BIRDS ENTER FOR QUEEN OF THE RODEO. I WOULD THINK EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE MY WIFEBIRD, YOU SHOULD ENTER SINCE IT IS DECIDED BY VOTES FROM EVERYBIRDY ON BC. YOU JUST NEED YOUR WESTERN OUTFIT.

AFTER MY SUNBATH THIS MORNING, MOM WENT TO HER GP FOR HER 3 MONTH APPOINTMENT TO GET A NEW SCRIPT FOR ONE OF HER MEDS. HE WAS VERY PLEASED ABOUT HER WEIGHT LOSS, AND HE ASKED HER TO GET A BLOOD TEST TO SEE IF IT FINALLY BROUGHT DOWN HER CHOLESTEROL. SO AFTER FASTING TONIGHT, FIRST THING TOMORROW SHE WILL GO GET HER ARM POKED.

THEN THIS AFTERNOON SHE GOES TO SEE HER GP HOPEFULLY FOR THE LAST TIME. HE SHOULD BE TAKING HER OFF THE PROTONIX COMPLETELY. AT LEAST MOM HOPES SO. THAT WILL BE ONE LESS MED TO REMEMBER TO TAKE EVERY DAY.

THINKI9NG ABOUT 9/11 MADE MOM SAD TODAY. SHE WAS REMEMBERING THAT AWFUL MORNING. IT WAS WHILE SHE WAS GETTING READY FOR WORK AND WATCHING THE NEWS, SINCE WE ARE 3 HOURS BEHIND NY. SHE CRIED ALL THE WAY TO WORK, AND THEY WATCHED IT ON TV THERE FOR A WHILE. THEN THEY SENT EVERYONE HOME EARLY. WE WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER.

  Day 11--The Greyt Race to the finish
Hello Everybirdie, Angel Girl here with today's BOTM post. I wish to first ask that you PRAY FOR QUEEN CHUEY. She is not feeling well, and as of yet the cause is "inconclusive" however she seems to have improved slightly in the past 24 hours. ALSO A REMINDER of the wedding of Tiamaria Ganster and my frother Casey Thrift will take place tomorrow-Friday on my page at 7PM EST--all are invited to join them as they exchange their vows in true Scottish style. Reception to follow.
As we left it yesterday Miss Chipper had flown into second place behind SKY. Everybirdie is pushing themselves on this last Triathlon event. Dixie is slowing down quickly, his feet and legs begin to hurt. Little Angel looks back as she waddles at top-speed down the hill. She sees Dixie begin to limp, then finally stop a sad look crossing his handsome face. Little Angel stops, and turns back to join Dixie when outta the blue Puffin and Tango come up from behind and lift Dixie onto their shoulders, running together wings acrossed each others backs. WHAT A SHOW OF TRUE SPORTSBIRDSHIP. The trio catches up to Little Angel who is jumping and clapping in delight as she watches Dixie happily completing the course with help from his friends. She yells and cheers as they come to where she is waiting, and the four birds run together side by side down the hill and head into the stretch moving fast.
The Trio and L'il Angel quickly catch up passing the others two by two soon taking third place as Chipper Sky and the others give it their all. Suddenly Rio, Lalo, Miranda and Peppino appear among the fore-runners and the push is on. Sky stumbles over a tree root, and fights to keep his balance. Willie grabs him by the Wing stopping his head long fall. After a quick man-birdly-hug they are off once more as the finish line appears in the distance. The four-some of LA, Dixie, Puffin and Tango begin to move forward into second position. Chipper flies into first as the group of runners/fliers move together towards their goal.
With the red finish line only ten feet ahead the foursome puts their all into it and take over the lead, as the others see Dixie clapping and Conure screeching in happiness they begin to yell and clap, cheering them on. The others slow their pace as they watch in awe as Tango and Puffin carefully place Dixie onto the ground only four steps from the finish. Little Angel takes Dixie by the wing, letting his weight fall upon her, as she helps him take one, two three steps with just one left she lets Dixie step carefully forward and the crowd goes crazy with screeches, screams and bird calls, DIXIE ADLER is this years 2014 Birdathalon WINNER. Cameras flash as sports announcers push forward, microphones in hand to get an interview with the winner.
"Do you have any words for those watchin' at home?" CBC asks
"YES. I had a little help from my friends." Dixie breaks down here, tears streaming down his cheeks as his Little Angel hugs him close.
