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 see that your mom got hit. I hope she is ok. My mom almost got hit today too. Some people just don't look where they are going. The old guy never looked just kept coming as mom slammed on her brakes.
The tulips look really nice on your talons. I guess you are all set for Easter. We are running behind ... too much going on this week.
This has been a busy week for my parronts. I hope we can get everything done for Easter on Saturday.
The new cushions for the patio furniture came today. Too bad the patio is snow covered!
Don’t forget the Milonga on Saturday night ~ the viewing of the hats for the derby contest.

I just heard the sad news that Lupe (226033) has gone over the rainbow bridge. This has been a very bad “season” for too many birds. Fly free Lupe.

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
OH, YOUR POOR MOM! GLAD THE SUV IS OKAY, BUT SHEESH! MOM IS ALWAYS WATCHING EVERYWHERE WHEN SHE IS BACKING OUT OF ANY OF THESE PARKING SPOTS, CUZ PEOPLE DRIVE LIKE IDIOTS. AND THAT DRIVER SOUNDS LIKE THE GUY WHO USED TO LIVE NEXT DOOR TO GRANDPA--HE WAS A TERROR ON THE ROAD. GRANDPA IS A GREAT DRIVER (THANK HEAVENS!) BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO JUST FOCUS ON ONE THING, AND FORGET THAT THERE ARE OTHERS AROUND TOO. SHEESH. JUST GLAD ALL IS OKAY WITH THE SUV, AND YOUR MOM AND GRANDMA.

NO, MOM WILL NOT CUT BACK ON ANYTHING FOR ME, EVEN IF SHE DOESN'T HAVE SOMETHING FOR HERSELF. SHE IS GOOD ABOUT THAT--SHE SAYS I COME FIRST, AND SHE CAN DO WITHOUT. SHE IS A GREAT MOM. PLUS WE HAVE THE FARMER'S MARKET COMING UP IN THE NEXT COUPLE MONTHS, SO SHE BUYS ME THINGS FROM THERE THAT ARE FRESH AND LOCAL AND JUST SOOOO YUMMY! SHE LOVES GOING THERE. MIGHT BE A LITTLE MORE EXPENSIVE FOR SOME STUFF, BUT IT IS FRESH AND I SURE DO LOVE EATING ALL THAT GOOD FOOD! IF MOM DOESN'T GET WORK, SHE CAN SELL SOME MORE OF HER CLOTHES SHE WORE FOR WORK, AS THOSE ARE NICE. BUT SHE IS PRICING THEM SO SHE GETS A LITTLE MORE MONEY THAN SHE DID FOR THE ONES SHE HAD NOT WORN IN A COUPLE YEARS CUZ THEY WERE TOO BIG.

GONNA GET MY HEADSCRITCH SHORTLY. MOM IS GOING BY HER FRIEND KIM'S TOMORROW AFTERNOON, SO WE MIGHT NOT BE AT THE MILONGA AS SHE IS GOING THERE AT 4 PM. SHE IS NOT STAYING TOO LATE, EITHER, AS THE AREA OF TOWN WHERE KIM LIVES IS KINDA IFFY. SO SHE LIKES TO LEAVE WHEN IT IS LIGHTER OUT.

HAVE A SUPER SATURDAY, AND I BET LEXI WILL MISS ALL THE GOOD WALKS YOUR MOM TAKES HER ON. I AGREE THOUGH THAT YOUR MOM SHOULD TELL HER HOW MUCH SHE LOVES WALKING AND ABOUT GETTING HER LEG FIXED.

YOUR POOR MAMA!! MOM READ THE STORY ABOUT YOUR MOM BEING HIT BY METHUSELAH IN THE PARKING LOT. THEY BOTH AGREE (ME, TOO!) THAT THE OLD GUY HAD NO IDEA WHAT HAD HAPPENED, AND HE WILL PROBABLY GO OUT TO GET IN HIS CAR ONE DAY AND WONDER HOW HIS TAIL LIGHT GOT BUSTED. HE DEFINITELY SHOULD NOT BE DRIVING ANY MORE. AND YOUR G-MA SHOULD NOT GO SHOPPING. WHAT AN ORDEAL FOR YOUR MOM. SOMETIMES IT SEEMS LIKE SHE IS YOUR G-MA'S SLAVE, BUT I KNOW YOUR MOM DOESN'T FEEL LIKE THAT.

TOMORROW NIGHT IS THE MINI-MILONGA FOR THE VIEWING OF THE HATS ENTERED IN THE DERBY HAT CONTEST. TAZ'S MOM NEEDS TO GET THEM LOADED IN THE GALLERY SO EVERYONE CAN SEE WHICH ONES THEY WANT TO VOTE FOR STARTING ON SUNDAY. THEY ARE JUST GOING TO BE NUMBERED AND NO NAMES, SO HOPEFULLY IT WON'T JUST BE A POPULARITY CONTEST RATHER THAN A TRUE HAT CONTEST.

I GOT A SUNBATH TODAY, BUT OUR NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR CAME OVER AND CHATTED WITH MY MOM FOR ABOUT HALF OF IT. HE IS A REALLY BIG GUY, SO I DIDN'T MAKE A SOUND. I REFUSED TO EAT THE NUTRIBERRY MOM BROUGHT OUT FOR ME THOUGH. I WON'T EAT IN FRONT OF DAD EITHER. MOM USED MY HALF HOUR BEING UP AS HER EXCUSE TO GO BACK INSIDE. HE CAN REALLY TALK AND TALK!

  Hi Sweetpepper
Oh my, what a jerk of a driver! Good thing mom's car wasn't damaged, but he is a hazard on the road if he's not aware of what's around him. What if it had been a person, not a strong SUV? Hope mom has a better day today.
Well, it's Good Friday, so mom made the Easter bread dough this morning. She usually does it today because she doesn't have museum or wildlife center responsibilities.
Bree came yesterday and I gave her and mom a run for their money! I flew all over the place until Bree finally caught me in mom's lightweight jacket, because the towel wasn't big enough. She left me my wings, though, because Daisy still hasn't learned manners with us birds, and mom wants all of us to have an escape, just in case.
Willie was the drama king, as usual, crying before Bree even got near him with the clippers. He's so funny! Peppino was okay, except he bit mom pretty hard because she let his head out of the towel. She'll learn in time. We all got my favorite treat, movie popcorn nutriberries, when Bree was done. She always says Millie and Lily are the best behaved, and they never want a treat for it.
Today, as well as the Easter bread, mom will boil eggs for deviled eggs, and make the hard custard that the family calls Easter Cheese. Everyone looks forward to it each year. Hope you are enjoying some sunshine today. It's a bit overcast here, but pretty nice, and it's supposed to hit the 70s on Sunday! I'll believe that when I see it, though. Here's a big hug today for you! See you at the spa, I think I'll get lilies and bunnies on my talons today. Hugs, Falco

  HELLO FROM FINNEGAN AGAIN
Hi SweetPepper,
I know it's Good Friday, but I'm going to wish you a Happy Easter anyway, because my Momma's skin son is coming today for a little visit from Utah and she probably won't be on the 'puter again until he leaves. Momma, Daddy and Jimmy were invited to a friend's home for dinner tonight so Daddy is going to get picked up from the rehab facility and go with them. He's excited to get out of there. But on Sunday, they are all going over there to have dinner with Daddy. Nobody wants to cook and they have GREAT food! Hope your weekend is lovely! Love and Hugs from Your Friend Finnegan

  Hi SweetPepper
Please tell G-pa that they are still skiing. Right now, they have 2 lifts open and the base is 55 inches.
I'm so looking forward to the spa pool and hot tub. I think I'll get a pedi done for Easter ... maybe lilac.
Well, it’s official; our little area received a total of 200 inches of snow this season. We won for the most snow in the Lower Peninsula! I feel so lucky. The record was 183 inches. At least it’s slowly melting and we can see some bare spots on the top of the sunny hill. Looks like Easter Sunday will be rainy and maybe 50 degrees. I hope the Easter Bunny wears his coat and boots when he comes to visit.

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
SEE, MOM FIGURED AS MUCH WITH LEXI. I BET SHE WILL LOSE SOME OF HER WEIGHT FROM ALL THE GOOD EXERCISE SHE IS GETTING WITH YOUR MOM! AND WALKING IS GREAT FOR YOUR MOM, TOO--SO IT IS A WIN-WIN! GRANTED WITH SUPER BAD WEATHER, WALKS WOULD BE HARDER TO DO, BUT NOW THAT IT IS NICE...MAYBE YOUR MOM SHOULD TEACH LEXI TO GET HER LEASH AND CARRY IT SO THAT SOMEONE GETS A HINT. WHADDAYA THINK?

YEAH, MOM IS NOT GOING TO TAKE THAT JOB--EVEN THOUGH IT WAS NOT OFFERED TO HER PER SE. SHE SAYS IT WOULD BE FINE IF SHE WAS ON SOCIAL SECURITY ALREADY, BUT SINCE SHE IS NOT, SHE HAS TO TRY FOR SOMETHING THAT WILL BE MORE LIKE WHAT SHE DOES NOW. AND IF NOTHING COMES ALONG, SHE WILL BE FINE--SHE IS ACTUALLY STARTING TO ENJOY HERSELF. MIGHT BE THE GOOD WEATHER OR MAYBE SHE IS JUST STARTING TO REALIZE THAT THERE IS SO MUCH MORE OUT THERE BESIDES WORKING SO MUCH. SHE WILL BE FINE--THE PENSION IS A BIG DEAL AS SHE IS HAPPY THAT SHE CAN ACCESS IT NOW. IT WILL HELP. AND SHE IS NOT SPENDING MONEY LIKE SHE DID WHEN SHE WORKED, SO SHE IS LIVING ON A LOT LESS. AND THAT IS GREAT. SHE DOESN'T HAVE TO BUY CLOTHES FOR WORK, THAT IS FOR SURE. AND IF NOTHING COMES IN, SHE CAN GET RID OF MORE OF THOSE CLOTHES ON EBAY. THOUGH THESE ARE NOT GONNA BE AS CHEAP, AS THESE ARE NEWER.

OFF TO GET MY HEAD SCRITCH. MOM SAYS SHE HAS TO GET SOME GROCERIES TOMORROW, SO SHE WANTS TO BE ABLE TO GET THERE EARLY.

HAVE A GREAT REST OF THE DAY, AND CYA TOMORROW!

HEY! I GOT A BOX FROM YOU TODAY FOR EASTER! MOM AND I NEVER EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT SENDING PRESENTS FOR EASTER BEFORE. SHE EVEN LET ME HAVE THE CARD AFTER SHE CUT OFF THE CUTE COVER. I REALLY ENJOYED CHEWING IT UP; IT MADE ME THINK OF YOU. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE NEW TOYS. NICEST EASTER BASKET EVER!

I SURE HOPE LEXI GOES HOME EARLY FOR YOUR SAKE. IT MUST MAKE YOU CRAZY TO KNOW THAT SHE IS ON YOUR COUCH WITH G-PA. HOPEFULLY HE DOESN'T PET HER WHERE YOU CAN SEE IT.

I HAD ANOTHER NICE SUNBATH TODAY ALTHOUGH IT WAS CLOUDY. IT WAS STILL IN THE MID 70s. MOM BROUGHT SOME AVICAKES FROM THE SAME FOLKS THAT MAKE NUTRIBERRIES. IT WAS A LITTLE SAMPLE PACK SHE GOT FROM FOSTERS. I TOOK ONE LITTLE NIBBLE AND DROPPED IT, AND SO MOM TRIED IT AGAIN WITH THE SAME RESULT. THEN SHE SMELLED THEM AND AGREED WITH ME...ICK! SO SHE BROKE UP THE 6 PACK OF CAKES AND TOSSED THEM AROUND THE YARD. MAYBE THE WILD BIRDS WILL LIKE THEM.

MOM IS BEING TOTALLY LAZY TODAY. SHE DIDN'T EVEN GET DRESSED OUT OF HER JAMMIES, BUT SINCE THEY ARE YOGA PANTS AND A T-SHIRT, IT DIDN'T MATTER. SHE FELT KINDA FUNNY GOING IN THE FRONT YARD FOR MY SUNBATH, BUT SINCE THEY DON'T LOOK LIKE JAMMIES WHO'S TO KNOW?

  Hi Sweetpepper
Mom had 2 tours this morning, one with Kindergarten kids and one with fifth grade. I like the pulling a train with your teeth analogy for the K kids, thanks, Cookie's mom! Mom always says it's like herding cats. They were pretty much all over the place. The second group was more fun for mom, they were from a rural area in PA, so knew a lot of the plants and animals they were looking at already. Mom likes the PA natural history tour, because she can go almost anywhere in the museum and talk about the state. If one area is crowded, she can move on. Tonight Bree is finally coming for the birdicures, so mom and her sister will go out early for dinner. They should get back in plenty of time.
I hope you are having a lovely day filled with sun, warmer temps, and lots of love. Hugs, Falco

60 for Easter Sunday you say? That would be warm compared to the 45° it is right now. At least the wind's not howling like crazy today. It's a wonder I don't do the whistle that one window in my room does when it's ridiculously windy out. That would be annoying sound!

That nasty snow followed my parronts downstate and back up here. I sure hope this is it! Easter is here soon and then the derby party on May3rd. Mom will have to put her "DERBY PARTY" sign out in the snow! She had thought that most of the snow would be gone except for the piles. This will be a strange derby snow party for sure.
Looking forward to Thursday’s mid 40’s but not the rain/snow mix. I sure hope that is it for the snow. Hey, it’s almost Easter! I don’t think the Easter bunny will get around in the deep snow very well. It did melt a little more.

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
I BET LEXI DOES NOT GET OUT FOR A LOT OF WALKS, SO SHE IS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THAT, HUH? DON'T BLAME HER. LOTS OF DOGS LOVE THEIR WALKS. MAXIE THE POODLE LOVED TO GO FOR WALKS WITH GRANDPA AND GRANDMA. HE LOVED THEM! HE WOULD WALK WITHOUT STOPPING AT ANY TREE OR ANY FIRE HYDRANT. AND WHEN HE GOT BACK TO THEIR HOUSE, HE WOULD RUN TO THE BACK YARD TO EITHER PEE OR POOP. MOM SAYS SHE NEVER SAW A DOGGIE DO THAT!

MOM WENT TO THE JOB INTERVIEW TODAY. SHE HAD TO THINK LONG AND HARD ABOUT IT--AS IT WOULD BE OVER 30K LESS A YEAR. THAT IS A HARD DECREASE TO TAKE, PLUS NO INSURANCE. IT WOULD BE A BAD MARK ON MOM'S EARLY RETIREMENT, TOO. SHE DOESN'T WANT TO DO THAT UNLESS SHE HAS TO. AND THEY WANTED TO SEE IF SHE COULD START ON MONDAY. IT IS FARTHER AWAY, AND IN RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC SHE WOULD BE STUCK IN A GOOD HOUR DRIVE EACH WAY. SHE DID NOT FIND OUT HOW MUCH IT WOULD BE, BUT THE OTHER GAL WAS MAKING A LITTLE OVER MINIMUM PAY. THEN MOM GOT A CALL THAT HARLEY DAVIDSON WANTED HER FOR A PHONE INTERVIEW, AND SHE HAS TO SUBMIT HER RESUME FOR A DIFFERENT POSITION AT ANOTHER COMPANY. SO SHE IS THINKING IT WOULD BE BETTER TO SEE IF SHE CAN GET INTO A COMPANY THAT WILL USE HER SKILLS. THE OFFICE JOB IS VERY OUTDATED--THEY DO EVERYTHING ON PAPER! MOM LOVES HER TECHNOLOGY, BUT NOTHING THAT SHE WOULD DO WOULD BE TECH BASED. AND SHE THINKS THAT IF SHE TRIED TO CHANGE IT, IT WOULD NOT BE APPRECIATED. AT LEAST THAT IS WHAT SHE PICKED UP FROM HER FRIEND. AND IF NOTHING COMES ALONG, THEN PLAN B WILL GO INTO PLACE. SHE FIGURES WHATEVER GOES ON, SHE NEEDS TO TRY TO GET SOMETHING THAT SHE IS GREAT DOING. AND THE SOCIAL SECURITY IS CALCULATED ON THE LAST THREE YEARS OF EARNING, SO SHE IS HOPING THAT SHE CAN AT LEAST WORK LONG ENOUGH TO GET THAT UP SO SHE GETS THE MAXIMUM SHE CAN. SHE WOULD HATE TO TAKE A JOB LIKE THE OFFICE ONE AND THEN ANOTHER ONE COMES ALONG THAT SHE WANTS. BECAUSE THAT OFFICE JOB IS FOR A VERY SMALL COMPANY, SHE WOULD NOT WANT TO GET TRAINED AND THEN LEAVE THEM IN A LURCH.

ANYWAY, THAT SUMS UP THE DAY. SHE IS BEAT.

I DECIDED THAT I WANTED TO PIERCE HER EAR--NOT MY FAULT BUT SHE HAD HER GLASSES ON, AND ME ON HER SHOULDER...AND THOSE GLASSES SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN THE TIME OUT ON THE PLAYGYM, AND NOT ME. NO BLEEDING (MOM WAS THRILLED). BUT IT IS SORE. SHE FORGAVE ME AFTER A WHILE. I STILL THINK THE GLASSES WERE THE REASON FOR IT. WHAT IS A GUY TO DO?

It's so nice of you to come by with hatchday wishes. I can hardly believe I'm 10 years old now. My goodness, has time flown! I did indeed have a very nice hatchday celebration. I finally got to play with the wicker and straw-type toy I've seen in the closet now for weeks. I had no idea it was going to be my hatchday present. No wonder I wasn't allowed to play with it before now.

How are things with you and Kacey and your family? Good, I hope. I imagine you're as ready for spring to really show up as I am. It was warm enough on a couple of different days last week but this week it's been back to too chilly for a parrot to be outside. Maybe that'll change next week.

Again, thanks for dropping by.

HOW DARE LEXI LIE DOWN NEXT TO G-PA IN YOUR SPOT?!! THAT IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE. WHEN DOES SHE LEAVE. I AM SURE YOU ARE READY FOR HER TO GO RIGHT NOW. AT LEAST YOUR SWEET MAMA MAKES IT UP TO YOU WITH LOTS OF TV TIME BEFORE YOU GO NIGHT NIGHT.

I HAVE VERY EGGCITING NEWS, MY LOVE. YOU REMEMBER HOW I REFUSED TO HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH MY OUTSIDE CARRIER, THEN GRADUALLY MOM WAS ABLE TO PUT ME INSIDE OF IT IF SHE CALMED ME DOWN REALLY GOOD FIRST. THEN I CLIMBED ON IT SOME WHEN SHE MOVED IT TO THE TABLE NEXT TO MY TOY BASKET. WELL, TODAY I CLIMBED INTO IT ALL BY MYSELF AND SAT ON THE PERCH WAITING TO GO OUTSIDE! MOM WAS SO EGGCITED, AND SHE KEPT TELLING ME WHAT A GOOD BOY I AM (LIKE I DON'T ALREADY KNOW THAT!). I GOT TWO NUTRIBERRIES TO ENJOY OUT THERE, AND THAT WAS SUPER COOL TOO.

MOM SPENT A GOOD PART OF HER DAY FIGHTING INSURANCE PROBLEMS AGAIN. BOTH THE SECONDARY AND THE PRIMARY COMPANIES ARE BEING A PAIN. THE SECONDARY COMPANY WANTS MEDICARE TO PAY EVERYTHING EVEN THOUGH MOM IS ONLY ON PART A WHICH IN OVERNIGHT HOSPITAL STAYS. THEN THE PRIMARY SCRIPT COVERAGE IS ALL SCREWED UP, WHICH MOM SPENT ABOUT 20 MINUTES ON THE PHONE DISCUSSING WITH THE LADY. SHE FINALLY ADMITTED MOM WAS RIGHT AND ORDERED AN AUDIT. WE SHALL SEE. THE EYE DOC IS GOING TO BILL MEDICARE, GET DENIED AND THEN REBILL THE SECONDARY. THAT IS THE WAY THEY HAVE HANDLED IT BEFORE. INSURANCE COMPANIES SURE ARE JERKS!

  Hi Sweetpepper
Poor Lexi, hope she gets seen by a vet.
Mom meant to share this on Monday, but forgot. Remember when she was at the parrot class on Sunday? Well, she learned something new there that all of us should be aware of. You know that zinc is toxic to birds, but did you know that there is zinc in those rubber balls, footballs, and all other soft rubber toys? Mom didn't know that! No more of that stuff in our cages for sure.
Today mom did the mammal nursery and the groundhog that's out in the first RVS cage. The groundhog is looking pretty good, should be gone soon. There were several squirrel babies in the mammal nursery as well as one injured adult possum. Many of the squirrels are still being hand fed, but a couple have their eyes open and are eating on their own now. It seems so soon!
Hope you are having a nicer day than we are. It got down into the low 20s last night, and it's slow to warm up today. The sun is out, but it's still really cold. I hope you get lots of love today, too. Hugs, Falco

I think old man Winter is just trying to scare us, but after what we all have been through, IT WON'T WORK! We will only have time for a few notes today, we got a million things to finish, plus the usual cleaning, you know the drill!

My parronts couldn't get away from the snow ... it followed them downstate.
I’m back! Mom was late getting home tonight. But, it’s ok because she came home with a bag of chew toys for me. We had two days of snow and cold. Today was 24 with the nights down to 11 degrees. I hear that mom saw grass and some flowers downstate must be nice!

SO LEXI HAD FUN RUNNING AROUND THE YARD, HUH? TOO FUNNY! AND IN THE SNOW! AND THE COLD. BET HER LEG IS BAD FROM BEING OVERWEIGHT, OR SHE HAS THAT ACL THING LIKE WILLIE'S POLLY. POOR GAL. MAYBE YOUR MOM SHOULD TAKE HER TO WORK OUT ON THE TREADMILL WITH HER?! THAT WOULD BE CUTE TO SEE, BUT BET THE GYM WOULDN'T LET HER COME IN.

YEAH, WE HAD COLD HERE THIS MORNING. IT WAS 21, AND WIND CHILL MADE IT LOWER. LOTS OF ACCIDENTS LAST NIGHT TOO--THE PAVEMENT WAS WET, AND THE CLOUDS CLEARED OUT MAKING THE TEMPS DROP TO BELOW FREEZING IN ABOUT 15 MINUTES. BLACK ICE IS SO BAD. MOM HATES THAT STUFF.

MOM HAS HER APPT. AT THE OFFICE JOB TOMORROW. SHOULD BE INTERESTING, AS MOM IS NOT AN OFFICE PERSON FOR GENERAL TYPE STUFF. SHE WILL CHECK IT OUT. SHE SAYS THAT THERE IS NO GUARANTEE SHE WILL FIT IN THERE. BUT SHE IS CHECKING IT OUT. SHE ALSO CHECKED OUT HER PENSION FROM THE HOSPITAL--THEY STOPPED OFFERING ONE, BUT MOM WAS ALREADY VESTED IN IT. AND IT WILL BRING HER MONEY NOW--NOT AS MUCH AS IF SHE WAITED UNTIL SHE WAS 65. BUT THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT SHE WILL BE HERE AT 65, SO SHE IS GOING TO TAKE THE PENSION NOW. IT TAKES 3 MONTHS TO PROCESS, AND SHE WILL NEED IT BY JULY. SHE GETS 73.5% OF IT IF SHE TAKES IT NOW. if SHE WAITS ANOTHER YEAR, SHE GETS 80%. SO IT IS NOT THAT MUCH MORE. THANKFULLY HER FRIEND TOLD HER ABOUT IT.

SENDING GOOD THOUGHTS YOUR MOM, GRANDPA AND GRANDMA'S WAY! GONNA GET MY HEAD SCRITCH AND THEN PERCH!

WE TRIED TO WATCH THE ECLIPSE OF THE MOON LAST NIGHT. IT WAS A CLEAR STARRY NIGHT UNTIL 1AM WHEN THE ECLIPSE STARTED AND THEN THE NIGHT SKY QUICKLY FILLED UP WITH SO MANY CLOUDS YOU COULDNT EVEN SEE THE FULL MOON. WE WOKE UP TO LOTS OF SNOW FLURRIES THIS MORNING. ITS BEEN A COLD MISERABLE DAY. TONIGHT ITS DROPPING DOWN TO 22.

  OH MY BELOVED
YOU REALLY SHOULD TRY TO FEED YOUR MOM. OF COURSE, IF YOU SUCCEED SHE WILL ONLY SPIT IT OUT AND MAKE YUCKY NOISES, BUT IT'S WORTH IT. I MANAGED TO FEED MY MOM MANY YEARS AGO WHEN I FIRST CAME TO LIVE WITH HER....BEFORE SHE SUSPECTED I WOULD DO SUCH A THING. I WAS VERY PROUD OF MYSELF. NOW I MOSTLY JUST FEED HER FINGERS, BUT I ALWAYS CLEAN IT UP TOO.

VERY QUIET HERE TODAY. WEATHER IS NICE, AND MOM HAD NO ERRANDS TO DO TODAY. SO IT WAS A KIDDO AND MOM TODAY FOR THE MOST PART. MY FAVORITE KIND OF DAY.

ANY IDEA WHAT IS WRONG WITH LEXI'S LEG? HER MOM REALLY NEEDS TO GET HER INTO THE VET'S OFFICE. HOW OLD IS SHE? SHE DOESN'T LOOK OLD ENOUGH TO BE HAVING ARTHRITIS, BUT IT'S HARD TO TELL WITH A WHITE DOG. NO WHITE FACE WHISKERS TO GIVE AWAY HER AGE.

  Hi Sweetpepper
The hot tub sounds good, it's cold here too!
Bree didn't get here yesterday for our birdicures, so mom is hoping she makes it today.
Mom went shopping in the snow today for Easter dinner. She got all the stuff except for salad makings and the greens for wedding soup. She'll get those late in the week. It is snowing today, but not sticking, so we have hopes the daffodils, tulips that haven't been eaten by the deer, hyacinths, and of course forsythia and lilacs will survive. It's going into the low 20s tonight, but there should be a warmup by Thursday. At least that's what the weather guys said. Today we have mom for the rest of the day, but she will be scrubbing our cages down, which we all hate. Just when you get stuff where you want it, along comes somebody to move it and clean it, then you have to start over again. I say phooey to that! Hope you are having a good day with nice weather.

  Hello SweetPepper~
I hope you are having a great day! Absolutely nothing of interest going on in my world but I did want to come by and say hello!
We have been doing more spring cleaning this week and it's really not very exciting at all!! Mom scrubbed the sliding glass door and the screen! It's so bright and pretty and I have an excellent view of the flags out in front of the complex! It's always windy around here so they are always flapping! They have red tulips on the flags and I enjoy watching them wave in the wind!
I hope you are enjoying your day and that window cleaning is not the most exciting thing going on in your life! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
WELL, IT SURE WAS CHILLY THIS MORNING. THE RAIN STOPPED AND THEN THE WHITE STUFF STARTED TO FALL. NOW, THIS IS APRIL, RIGHT? AND MID-APRIL AT THAT. HUMPF. I SURE HOPE THAT LITTLE COLUMBINE MOM TOLD ME ABOUT AT GRANDPA'S DID NOT SUFFER ANY WEATHER STUFF TODAY. THE DARN WHITE STUFF KEPT COMING, BUT IT DID NOT STICK TO THE GROUND. JUST A DUSTING ON THE BANNISTER OF THE BALCONY.

MOM GOT REJECTED FOR ONE JOB, AND SUBMITTED FOR ANOTHER ONE. OF COURSE, THE PLACE THAT SHE GOT SUBMITTED IS NORTHWESTERN MUTUAL, BUT IN THE FRANKLIN OFFICE. SHE KNOWS SHE HAS A CHANCE IN HECK TO GET IN THERE, BUT SHE KEEPS TRYING. IT WOULD BE NICE MONEY, FOR SURE. AND THEY KEEP THEIR CONTRACT PEOPLE FOREVER. BUT WHO KNOWS IF SHE WILL GET A CALL FOR AN INTERVIEW. GUESS SHE WILL WAIT AND SEE, BUT NOT REALLY WAIT AROUND FOR IT. SHE HAS JUST GOTTEN TIRED OF TRYING HARD, AND NADA TO SHOW FOR IT.

HOPE YOUR MOM'S BUNCO GAME WAS FUN. ALWAYS NICE TO GET OUT AND DO FUN THINGS LIKE THAT. MOM IS JUST READY FOR WARMER WEATHER SO SHE CAN GET HER BUTT OUT TO WALK. AND WARM ENOUGH TO TAKE ME ALONG WITH HER. GUESS IT WILL COME, BUT AFTER TODAY, WHO KNOWS WHEN THAT WILL BE?

HAVE A SUPER EVENING!

MY MOM WORRIES ABOUT HOW BAD YOUR MOM'S HEARTBURN IS. IT IS MUCH WORSE THAN MY MOM'S, SINCE SHE CAN EAT GARLIC AND EVEN A LITTLE BIT OF TOMATO. HOW OFTEN DOES YOUR MOM GET AN ENDOSCOPY? WE DON'T WANT HER TO GO THRU WHAT MOM HAS HAD WITH THE BARRETT'S, BUT EVEN WORSE WOULD BE WHAT HAPPENED WITH YOUR G-PA.

AS SOON AS MOM GOT HOME FROM THE GYM TODAY, WE WENT OUT FRONT FOR MY SUNBATH. MOM WAS AFRAID IT WOULD BE TOO HOT IF WE WAITED ANY LATER. WE HAD A HIGH OF 86 TODAY, AND SO MOM SAT IN THE SHADE THE WHOLE TIME. I WAS QUITE COMFY THOUGH. I LIKE THE WARM TEMPS.

WITH LEXI LIMPING I BET YOU COULD TAKE HER DOWN IN A HEARTBEAT. SHE WOULD NEVER BE QUICK ENOUGH TO GET AWAY. IF THE TWO OF US....OOPS, MOM SAYS NO NO!

I TRIED TO FEED MOM'S MOUTH LAST NIGHT, BUT SHE SAW IT COMING AND TURNED HER HEAD SO I FED HER CHEEK. I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO FEED HER PROPERLY FOR YEARS. SHE IS JUST TOO QUICK FOR ME.

  Hi Sweetpepper
Poor Lexi, hope she feels better soon. Will her mom get her to the surgeon? We sure hope so. It's so mean of humans to let their pets get so overweight. When Polly first came to us, she weighed nearly 18 pounds and was really flabby, no muscle tone. She's only lost about 4 pounds, but she's all muscle now and in much better shape.
Mom had 2 trainees today, and it was an all bird day, so she was happy. She had them both get on the camo sheet and the ghillie suit and do the owlet with Martha. She couldn't go in there because there are only 2 suits, so she kind of watched through a corner of the curtain to see that they did right.
They went into the main aviary next, where there are a couple of blue jays, a cardinal and a starling. It's not too crowded in there yet, but they got to do the inside and the outside aviaries. Last but not least, they did the avian nursery. Again, no babies yet, but several cages to be cleaned anyway. Those birds included screech owls, pigeons, doves, a woodpecker, a jay, and a yellow bellied sapsucker. It was a good variety, so the trainees got to deal with a lot of birds. The dove escaped and mom showed them how to catch it calmly and replace it in the cage.
This afternoon we think Bree is coming to trim nails and maybe wings. Mom is still thinking about the wings part, because of Daisy dog. She wants us to be able to get away if necessary. Mom is about ready for a haircut, too, so maybe Lena will be coming over as well. It's not as pretty as it was over the weekend, but it's still pleasantly warm. Hope you are having a good day.

  IT'S FINNEGAN AGAIN
Hi SweetPepper,
Daddy had a rough week last week, but this past weekend was much better for him. Yesterday he said that he almost felt good! He's even eating a little more now and it's staying down.

Momma's going to be bird-sitting for three birdies this month. Our friend's little budgie is coming over Thurs. for about 5 or 6 days. Then next Mon. we're getting a severe macaw and a grey. We kept them last year, too, when their parronts went on vacation. So it should be a noisy good time.
Love from Finnegan♥

  Hi SweetPepper
Please enjoy your weather for me. My only wish is that the rain melts the snow and the cold goes away.

Update on Blue … she is eating and resting with very slow movements. Get well soon little girl.
Monday will start off with snow turning to rain the rest of the day and Tuesday. The temps will be highs of 36 and lows down to 11 degrees. It’s pouring right now; hope that gets rid of a lot of snow.
I will not be on the puter on Monday. I’ll be back on Tuesday.

RAIN, RAIN AND MORE RAIN. AND NOW THEY ARE TALKING SNOW SHOWERS. WINDY AND COLD. HEY--WAIT A MINUTE! IT IS APRIL, AND IT SHOULD BE WARMER! BUT GUESS IT IS WEIRD WISCONSIN WEATHER AGAIN. SHEESH!

NOT MUCH GOING ON TODAY. THAT WAS FINE WITH ME. MOM AND I TOOK A NAP CUZ SHE WAS UP AND DOWN LAST NIGHT WITH THE STORMS THAT CAME THRU. LOTS OF LIGHTENING. AND THUNDER. SHE DID SOME CLEANING AND STUFF LIKE THAT, AND WATCHED THE BREWERS PLAY. THEY ARE DOING SUPER DUPER RIGHT NOW. LONG SEASON, BUT THEY ARE PLAYING SO WELL! WON 9 IN A ROW. SURE DO ENJOY BASEBALL HERE!

YUP, I WOULD GO AFTER LEXI IF SHE WAS HERE. I DID THAT WITH MAX, GRANDMA AND GRANDPA'S LITTLE TOY POODLE. THOUGH I WAS IN MY HOUSE, I THREW THINGS AT HIM IF HE CAME TOO CLOSE TO IT. AND MADE ALL KINDS OF NOISE, TOO. MOM SAID THAT I SCARED MAX, AS HE WOULD HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH COMING NEAR MY HOUSE!!

HAVE A SUPER REST OF THE NIGHT, AND LET'S HOPE THAT THERE IS NO SNOW IN THE MORNING. ALL THOSE FORMER CO-WORKERS IN GREEN BAY ARE SUPPOSED TO GET ABOUT 5 INCHES OF THE WHITE STUFF. MOM IS SHAMEFUL, BUT SHE IS HAPPY THAT IT IS NOT HERE.

  Hi Sweetpepper
It's a c/p night again, sorry! Mom had a busy day yesterday, even though she wasted a couple of hours going to that event. There was a mix up and they weren't expecting her, so there was no table for her to set things up. They offered her a tray table, like you'd set a TV dinner or snack on, but she was worried about children knocking over the quails' cage, so she declined and drove back to the center.
It has been a gorgeous weekend, and some of our daffodils have finally bloomed! Today it hit over 80 degrees, YAY! Mom attended a parrot raising class this morning, then another meeting for a new group called BirdSafe Pittsburgh. They are recruiting volunteers to walk the city early in the morning during spring and fall migrations to pick up any injured migratory birds in the city and get them to the wildlife center for rehabilitation. Mom offered to transport birds a couple of days a week.
Once she got home and cleaned our cages, it was evening and she was tired, so she sat in front of the TV staring stupid all night! Anyway I hope you had a glorious day and got some sun and attention. Hugs, Falco

WELL, MOM IS NOT SUPPOSED TO HAVE THE SPICY GARLIC EITHER, BUT THE DOC SAYS ONCE IN A WHILE IS OK AS LONG AS SHE IS TAKING THE PROTONIX TWICE A DAY. MOM WOULD LIKE TO BUY EXTRA SAUCE TO PUT MORE ON AT HOME, BUT DAD WON'T LET HER DO IT. MAYBE HE IS GOOD FOR SOMETHING AFTER ALL, BECAUSE I KNOW HE WOULD LIKE IT TOO. AND IT DOESN'T HURT HIM.

MOM AND I SHARED THE LEFTOVERS FROM HER CHICKEN BOWL TODAY, AND I ACTUALLY ATE TWO PIECES OF CABBAGE! THAT IS A FIRST, AND MOM WAS VERY PLEASED. SHE SUSPECTS IT WAS BECAUSE MY SUGAR SNAP PEAS WERE SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT THIS MORNING. THE PEAS INSIDE WERE SO TINY THEY WEREN'T WORTH EATING. THEY LOOKED GREAT FROM THE OUTSIDE, SO MOM WAS VERY SORRY. I THREW THEM ON THE FLOOR IN DISGUST.

WE DID GET OUT FOR A SUNBATH TODAY. AS USUAL THE WEATHER IDIOTS GOT IT WRONG. IT WAS ACTUALLY A BIT WARMER THAN YESTERDAY AND HIT 75 AT 1PM WHICH IS WHEN MOM GOT ME OUT THERE. I TRIED TO REACH THRU THE BARS OF MY CARRIER AND GET DAD AS HE HELD THE SCREEN DOOR FOR US COMING BACK IN. NO SUCCESS, BUT I WILL KEEP TRYING.

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
AH, MOM SAYS THAT IF THESE WERE THE PEOPLE HIRING HER TO WORK FOR THEM AT THEIR COMPANY, SHE WOULD ASK. BUT THESE ARE AGENCIES, AND THEY WANT YOU TO GO IN TO A NEW PLACE AND BE ABLE TO FUNCTION IN THE JOB IMMEDIATELY. SO IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE SAME SKILLS AS SOMEONE ELSE HOW DOES THE REAL ANALYST WORK, YOU CAN'T PRODUCE RIGHT OFF THE BAT. SINCE MOM'S JOB WAS PRETTY MUCH EXCLUSIVE TO HER OLD COMPANY, THE SAME KIND OF STUFF THAT SHE DID DOESN'T CARRY OVER TO OTHER COMPANIES. SHE IS JUST TIRED OF LOOKING AND NOT FINDING ANYTHING. WITH THE BIG NEED FOR ANALYSTS THESE DAYS, MOM COULD NOT UNDERSTAND WHY SHE DOESN'T GET SOME TYPE OF JOB. IT IS BECAUSE WHAT SHE DID WAS SPECIALIZED, AND NOT THE TYPE OF WORK A REAL BUSINESS ANALYST DOES ELSEWHERE. IT SUCKS, AS MOM WOULD SAY.

WE HAVE BEEN HAVING LOTS OF STORMS HERE. THIS MORNING IT WAS RAINY AND GREY AND GLOOMY. MOM AND I TOOK A LITTLE NAP AFTER SHE FINALLY GOT UP AT 9 AM. I HAD TO TELL HER THAT SHE WAS SHIRKING HER DUTIES AND BETTER FEED ME CUZ I WAS STARVING! ANYWAY, SHE WENT SHOPPING AND BROUGHT ME BACK SOME SUGAR SNAP PEAS, AND CARROTS, AND SOME POTATO SALAD--LOVE THE STUFF! I FORGAVE HER FOR SLEEPING LATE. AND TONIGHT WE HAVE HAD SOME BAD STORMS ROLL THRU. ONE PLACE HAD PING-PONG SIZED HAIL. NO THANK YOU. AND SNOW IS SUPPOSED TO COME TOMORROW NIGHT. THEY SAID NO MEASUREABLE AMOUNTS BUT WEIRDER THINGS HAVE HAPPENED. JUST WOULD LIKE IT TO BE NICER AND WARMER SO MOM AND I COULD GO FOR A NICE WALK TOGETHER. THAT WOULD BE SO MUCH FUN! GONNA BE A WHILE YET.

GONNA HIT THE PERCH, SO WILL CYA TOMORROW!

WELL, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT LEXI IS WUSSY FOR NOT WANTING TO GO OUT IN THE RAIN, BUT I HAVE TO ADMIT I HAVE NEVER DONE IT. I AM SURE NEITHER YOU NOR I WOULD HAVE A PROBLEM WITH A LITTLE RAIN THOUGH. DON'T YOU THINK?

MOM SURE HOPES HER GRIEVANCE WORKS AND THE INSURANCE JERKS FINALLY PAY THE NOVEMBER HOSPITAL BILL. THEY PAID THE DOC'S PORTION, SO IT IS JUST RIDICULOUS FOR THEM TO DENY THE HOSPITAL. ESPECIALLY SINCE THE DOC GOT QUALIFIED THERE JUST TO BE IN NETWORK FOR THIS PROCEDURE.

MOM AND DAD WENT TO CHICKEN BOWL FOR LUNCH TODAY. THEY HAVE A HOT AND SPICY GARLIC CHICKEN BOWL THAT MOM AND DAD JUST LOVE. GUESS WHO ELSE LOVES IT? MOM ALWAYS SHARES HERS WITH ME, AND I LOVE THAT SAUCE. SO I GRAB A PIECE OF CHICKEN AND BEAK IT UNTIL ALL THE SAUCE IS GONE THEN I DROP IT AND GRAB ANOTHER. MOM SAYS MY MANNERS ARE TERRIBLE, BUT SHE WILL STILL SHARE THE OTHER HALF (SHE CAN ONLY EAT HALF AT ONE SITTING) WITH ME FOR LUNCH TOMORROW.

  Hi Sweetpepper
From what mom is saying, she will be able to drive the next day. Polly is doing really well, she is playing with Daisy a little now.
Want to hear something strange? Mom has an event to attend today with one of the education animals. She kind of knows where the place is, north of here, off the turnpike on a major highway. She isn't sure which exit to take, so she checked MapQuest for directions. This is a rather large shopping center and very upscale, so you'd think it was easy, right? Wrong! MapQuest said they couldn't find it, and try to revise the search. Well, I think she'll end up taking the wrong exit, because last time she went there, that's what she did. It takes her to US19, but too far south. She can suck it up and drive on that road though.
This is an Easter Egg hunt in the shopping area, so she hopes she'll be taking a bird to the event, because they do lay eggs...can't imagine tying in the porcupine, skunk, or possum to the egg hunt!
It's supposed to reach 70 here today, we hope that's true. It is sunny right now, and since mom will be at an outdoor venue, we hope it stays that way. Hope you are having a good day and getting sunshine and scritches. Hugs, Falco
