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..

HAPPY HUMPDAY

i finally got outside today with no problems. no jackhammers and no poisons being sprayed. mom put me in the lilac bush where i chewed off some dead branches. a warbler flew over to the lilac bush to see who i was. i ignored it. when i saw a bug fly around mom i would try and bite it. i was very happy when mom took me inside.

love Cori

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
WHAT A FABULOUS PICTURE OF YOU! MOM LOVES IT WHEN SHE CATCHES ME AT THE RIGHT MOMENT, AND I SEE YOUR MOM CAUGHT YOU PREENING YOUR FOOT! HOW COOL!

TODAY WAS A REPEAT OF YESTERDAY WEATHER-WISE. IN THE 70'S AND THE HUMIDITY HAS DROPPED (THANK HEAVENS). I TOOK A HUGE BATH TONIGHT. NO FLOOD, BUT A GOOD BATH. MOM HAD TO TOWEL ME OFF CUZ I WAS SO WET (BOO, HISS). BUT THEN SHE USED THE LITTLE BLOW DRYER TO GET OFF THE REST OF THE SUPER WET. GREAT TO HAVE CLEAN FEATHERS BUT MOM SAYS EARLIER IN THE DAY IS MUCH NICER TO DRY OFF.

MOM HAD A PHONE INTERVIEW WITH A PLACE TODAY. SHE HAS NO IDEA IF SHE WILL GET AN IN PERSON INTERVIEW OR NOT. SHE WANTS TO FIND OUT IF SHE CAN REALLY RETIRE ON FRIDAY. IF NOT, THEN SHE WILL CARE, BUT IF SHE CAN...THE LONGER SHE IS OFF, THE LESS INCLINED SHE IS TO WANT TO GO BACK TO THE RAT RACE. SO WE WILL WAIT UNTIL FRIDAY WHEN SHE FINDS OUT FROM HER FINANCIAL GUY FOR SURE.

HAVE A GOOD REST OF THE NIGHT, AND WING HUGS COMING YOUR WAY AND YOUR MOM AND KACEY'S TOO!

Love your new picture! The fruit stand that opens in March till Labor Day is an actual building and later there will be farmers markets too but those produce are actually grown by the sellers. The fruits and veggies the fruit stand has the owners buy from farmers in other states that their stuff is ready now and later will buy from the locals and sell there stuff at the fruit stand too. Right now there isnt any local fruits or veggies ready in Pa yet.
Last night on BC was hard to do. The pages were so slow at moving and though we blogged everyone we sure hope they went along with the vote we always leave for every birdie too. Mom even tried to do the vote question and it said she didn’t leave an answer and she did. I am sure we all had this same problem but boy it sure is frustrating when it takes so long to just get the pages to turn and then wonder if they even went or if the vote went too. Hope fully tonight will be better. “All you need is love, but a little millet now and then sure doesn’t hurt.“ Leaving a vote for you~ hugs., Gus (RIP Chi chi)

SO SORRY YOU ARE STILL HAVING SOGGY WEATHER. YOU HAVE HAD MORE THAN ENOUGH, AND WE CAN'T GET ANY! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE? AT LEAST I WAS ABLE TO GET OUTSIDE FOR A SUNBATH FINALLY. MOM TOOK ME OUT RIGHT AFTER WE HAD A ROAST BEEF AND PROVOLONE WRAP FOR LUNCH (AND YES, SHE PUT SPINACH ON THERE....WHY CAN'T I GET THE POINT ACROSS TO HER THAT I DON'T APPRECIATE GREEN STUFF ON MY WRAPS?) ANYWAY AT 12:45 THE AIR WAS WARM AND SO WAS THE GENTLE BREEZE...JUST PERFECT. AND MOM BROUGHT OUT HER BOOK AND TWO NUTRIBERRIES, SO I KNEW IT WOULD BE A NICE TANNING SESSION. SO SUNNY!

I POSTED OUR RENAISSANCE PIC ON THE MILONGA PAGE. WE ARE THE FIRST ENTRY IN THE CONTEST. HOWEVER I DID NOT PUT ANY BLOG UP, BECAUSE I THINK IT SHOULD COME FROM YOU SINCE I WILL BE DOING THE COUNTING. CAN YOU DO THAT FOR ME, SWEETHEART?

AND MOM REALLY APPRECIATED YOUR EMAIL ABOUT G-PA'S EYE APPOINTMENT. HER RIGHT EYE HAS GRADUALLY BEEN GETTING MORE CLOUDY OVER THE PAST 3 OR 4 YEARS, BUT AS OF LAST OCTOBER HER EYE DOC SAID SHE WON'T NEED THE SURGERY FOR AT LEAST ANOTHER YEAR OR TWO. THE LEFT EYE IS NOT SHOWING ANY SIGNS YET, BUT APPARENTLY IT IS INEVITABLE IF THE RIGHT EYE IS GOING. AT LEAST IT WILL BE SEVERAL YEARS APART. MOM'S DAD ALSO HAD GLAUCOMA, BUT THE CATARACT SURGERY HE HAD (BACK IN THE 70s) FIXED BOTH PROBLEMS. THEY HAVE COME A LONG WAY SINCE THEN. YOUR MOM MIGHT WANT TO ASK AUNT ARLENE, FALCO'S MOM, ABOUT THE MACULAR DEGENERATION. IT MAY NOT BE THE SAME THING SHE HAS, BUT SHE MIGHT HAVE SOME GOOD INFO.

  Hi Sweetpepper
Tell Gpa that he's going to love the cataract surgery. Mom can see much better than she ever did in her life after that surgery. Mom also has macular degeneration in both eyes, that's why she gets those shots in her left eye. It has wet MD, while the right has dry MD. Your Gpa's is probably the dry kind, which is much more common.
After the cataract surgery they can laser some holes in his eyes to lessen the pressure from the glaucoma, too.
Mom had an evolution tour with 7th grade folks today. It was a lot of fun, but it's hard to get that information done in one hour! They started with the fossils in the main hallways, then went into some Paleozoic and Mesozoic areas. By the time they got to Cenozoic, the time was up!!! Mom knew they had another hour on their own, so she suggested they look at the mammals in cenozoic, and go to the second floor to see modern mammals, and hit the third floor for birds. It's too bad they don't schedule 1 1/2 or 2 hour tours for that subject, though. The teacher with the group asked mom if she could schedule her family for a tour with a docent, so mom gave her information and told her to get in touch with visitor services.
It started out rainy this morning, but it sure looks pretty now. Maybe mom will get to the pool this afternoon, just for a little while. They open late this week and next, so if she goes, it will just be for a little while before dinner.
I hope you are having a great sunshine filled day, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

It's Popeye.
Mom and dad saw a very good movie yesterday, for free movie day. It's called "The Longest Ride". Mom and dad both enjoyed it.
After the movie mom and dad went shopping AGAIN. They went to Target, Walmart, BevMo and Sprouts. Oh, and dad went to Lowe's for a replacement hose for the sprinklers, which he forgot to install when he got home.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 78 and a low of 58. Dad's going to try framing some pictures.
Hope your day is fun. Can you send us some of that rain?

So is it common to see the hummingbirds hanging upside down by one foot? The days have been unusually cooler and not much sun. That was the first time mom had ever seen a hummingbird in that state. So glad he wasn't sick or dying like mom initially thought. We had more rain and hail yesterday ... I swear we are turning into swamp land lol. Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.

We are having one nice day with a little rain and then, the next day is cold and rains on and off. I'm so tired of this!
Our area had a visitor recently. It was a black bear (200 plus pounds). Just checking out some birdfeeders, didn't get ours but got the one next door.
Today was 80 but very dark. Wednesday will be rainy and down to 63 degrees. Wish it would be in the 70's at least. This is day 18 for me with BC problems ... anyone else?

  Hi Sweetpepper & Kacey
Happy Tuesday everybirdie, Sweetie here with your BOTM blog for the day. I so enjoy the blogs, I read them each and sometimes twice in case I missed anything. Such great information is available right here among our BC friends. It's been a rather eventual few days. Momma Deb was called on to take in an older Cockatoo, but through many conversations was able to keep him safely in his own home. This poor M-Too was severely plucked and sported a rather nasty hole ( self-inflicted) on his neck. His past owners moved suddenly and gave up him, and an Amazon to a fellow local rescue who deals with small species only. Hola, as he is named was fostered into a home of experienced Companion Parrot owners with no Too experience. After Momma told them about the need for blood work to test for diseases, need to have the wound treated by the Vet and to discover, if possible the reason he is plucking, Hola is now at an Avian Vet under-going treatment.
We, BC Companion Parrot Ambassadors have so much we can share, so much to give to the Avian World. So many of you have done so much to help others learn about life shared with a feathered Fid. Everytime you suggest a good food to someone eying various foods for their Parrot at home you are making a World of difference both to their Bird and also to those whom speak with. It does matter. A few shared words of wisdom can save an innocent Parrot years of neglect, or re-homing. It is better to dissuade someone getting a bird, then remaining silent. From experience I see it often here, in my forever home. People visit, and OH I LOVE THAT ONE! I always wanted one of those? What is it? Can IT talk!? Oh they certainly are told the facts no holds barred. We are loud, messy beyond words, destructive sometimes, expensive, eat only the best out-of-season fruits and can be down right nasty when upset, hormonal or angry. People leave with a new understanding of life with a Parrot. It is not all that TV version of the Macaw on the shoulder talking in cognitive sentences, or a small, flitting bird singing happily in its barred prison.
Mom says she is going to keep close tabs on Hola, so he doesn't fall through the cracks, and disappear forever. She has arranged with the very BEST Cockatoo Sanctuary she knows of in Canada to take him there to live forever. There he will be safe, cared for and loved dearly by the owner, and volunteers.
I want to encourage everyone to get involved in some small way. Some of you have done quite a lot to education people about Companion Parrots. Not everyone has that ability, but we can all offer to be an advisory, to offer help to owners through animal shelters, or a Vet office. You might be surprised how willing they are for someone to refer people to with bird problems.
PLEASE keep sharing your stories they are fabulous.

  Hi Sweetpepper
Mom says the best part of the holidays is having left overs the next day LOL. Mom says it taste better the second day too but think mom just enjoys it more cause she dont have to do lots of cooking then.
Mom went to the fruit stand today and came home with some more goodies for another week. She went to the grocery store too and they are re arranging everything in the store in different areas and boy trying to find things is a bit rough. Mom goes up and down every aisle now cause that is the only way to find what your looking for. Needless to say mom is gone a bit longer then usual but I didn’t get to go outside anyway since it rained and then mom got busy once it did get nice so maybe tomorrow that will happen. “All you need is love, but a little millet now and then sure doesn’t hurt.“ Leaving a vote for you~ hugs., Gus (RIP Chi chi)

OH, WOW, WHAT A WEIRD DAY TODAY AGAIN. WE HAD RAIN IN THE MORNING, AND THEN IT CLEARED, THEN IT RAINED AGAIN, CLEARED, THE SUN CAME OUT AND THEN IT GOT DARK AND REALLY WINDY. MOM SAYS A LITTLE LESS HUMIDITY WOULD BE NICE. I DON'T MIND IT BUT SHE IS ALL SWEATY. AND SHE IS NOT DOING ANYTHING!

NOT MUCH GOING ON HERE. MOM HAD CALLS FROM 5 DIFFERENT AGENCIES FOR THE SAME JOB TODAY. THAT HAD TO BE A RECORD! SHE WAS ALREADY SUBMITTED TO THE JOB BY HER FORMER COMPANY. SHE SENT OUT A FOLLOW UP EMAIL TO THE GAL FROM THE BANK JOB (DOESN'T THAT SOUND FUNNY?) AS SHE IS SUPPOSED TO GET A PHONE CALL FOR AN INTERVIEW FROM THEM BUT SHE DID NOT HEAR BACK ANYTHING. AT THIS POINT, SHE DOESN'T THINK THAT WILL HAPPEN. DOES SHE CARE? NOT REALLY.

WELL, MEMORIAL DAY IS OVER, AND THE PREDICTED WARM UP FOR TODAY NEVER HAPPENED. THE CLOUDS DID NOT BURN OFF AS THE WEATHER GEEKS PROMISED. WHEN MOM GOT HOME FROM THE GYM SHE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE WARM ENOUGH AND TOOK ME OUT IN MY CARRIER, BUT LESS THAN 5 MINUTES LATER WE WERE BACK INSIDE! THERE WAS A COOL BREEZE BLOWING AND MOM WAS AFRAID I WOULD CATCH A CHILL. I FOUND THE WHOLE THING VERY CONFUSING.

HOWEVER RIGHT AFTER THAN MOM HEATED UP SOME ENCHILADA PIE FOR OUR LUNCH, AND I SAT ON HER SHOULDER AND SUPERVISED. WE EVEN EMPTIED THE DISHWASHER TOGETHER, WHICH IS ONE OF THE FEW THINGS IN THE KITCHEN BESIDES THE MICROWAVE THAT DOESN'T SCARE ME. (OPEN THE OVEN AND I AM GONE!) SO THEN WE SHARED THE PIE, AND MOM HAD THE NERVE TO CALL ME ENCHILADA BREATH! HOW RUDE!

AND SHE DID BRING ME IN TO DO MY BLOGS, BUT THE WORK OUTS WE HAVE BEEN DOING HAVE ME JUST TOO STRONG. I WENT FOR THAT DESK DRAWER, AND EVEN WITH MOM HOLDING IT CLOSED I WAS GETTING IT OPEN A LITTLE. DIDN'T WORK OUT SO WELL THOUGH, SINCE IT LANDED ME BACK IN MY ROOM. HOWEVER I AM TAKING A NAP NOW, SO I DON'T REALLY MIND SO MUCH.

  Hello SweetPepper~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! The pool is finally filled up but it was a bit of a disappointment. There is a room across from the pool which mom says is the control room. They just turned on the faucets and filled it up! Sort of like a bathtub but bigger. Not very exciting at all.
Mom made me some macaroni and peas to cheer me up! Mandy just loves macaroni and cheese so mom baked a pan to give her a treat also. She is a very happy dog! She spent the morning ripping up the wee wee pads and tossing the pieces side to side. Since I do that with the newspaper at the bottom of my cage, I can't say a thing! Mom didn't seem too happy that she ripped them up. They were unused by the way!
I'm off to supervise kitchen cleaning! Mom says if you cook you gotta clean! I didn't cook so I'll just supervise! In mom's case, she cooked and went to the movies yesterday so she has to pay the price!hahahahahaha She saw Tomorrowland and enjoyed it so she says it was worth it!
I hope your day is spectacular! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Mom got a shot this morning and her eyes are still dilated. The left one is scratchy as well, but that happens with the shots. Anyway, it's a warm cloudy day here today, and we're expecting rain on and off. When mom's eyes clear up, she's going for a manicure.

  HELLO FROM LITTLE LUCY
Hello SweetPepper,
Oh dear, where to begin? Let’s begin with thank you, thank you, thank you for all the lovely wishes for my hatchday and all the congrats on my BOTD win! That was such a big surprise! You are all so kind to keep visiting me when I’m on hiatus. Mommy says that that’s probably the way it will go all summer and into the fall because we’re expecting lots of company this summer from my skin sisters, brother, and grandchildren. Many of them live in other states.

The weather is getting really nice here and we can be out on our porch everyday now. And guess what? We have baby swans after all! Mommy will try to take their pics sometime this week and post them. But they don't always come close enough. They usually spend most of their time in the middle of the lake or on the other side. They have to come right by our house to get there though, but Mommy does't always see them.
Lots of Love and Hugs from Little Miss Lucy♥

Mom saw a hummingbird hanging upside down on an empty feeder this weekend and it wasn't moving ... mom thought it had dies so went to remove it. It fell off as she was trying to get the feeder down. Mom recovered the body and discovered it was still alive, eyes closed but it would squeak occasionally. Mom took it inside and got it warm and it started perking up. After about 45 minutes total mom took it out and watched it fly away. Mom got the feeders re-filled with warm water ASAP. Poor little guy as it was cold out. Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
WE HAD RAIN THIS MORNING AND THEN THE SUN CAME OUT TO MAKE THINGS STEAMY HERE. MOM HELD OFF AS LONG AS SHE COULD BEFORE TURNING ON THE AIR IN THE LIVING ROOM--SHE HAD IT SET AT 82, WHICH IS ENOUGH TO TAKE THE HUMID AIR OUT, AND NOT BE TOO COLD. GOT TO 78, WHICH WOULD BE WONDERFUL IF THAT DARN HUMIDITY AND DEW POINT WERE LOWER. SHE WAS PRETTY SWEATY AFTER SHE DID THE IRONING TODAY. OF COURSE, I COULD CARE LESS. WE TOOK A NAP, AND I CRAWLED IN HER SHIRT AND STAYED THERE FOR A GOOD HALF HOUR AFTER SHE WOKE UP. HEHE.

GREAT PIX OF THE DUCKS! IF MOM DECIDES TO RETIRE, SHE CAN SPEND SOME TIME TAKING PICTURES (OF ME OF COURSE!). BUT SHE IS DEFINITELY NOT AS GOOD AS SHE USED TO BE, AND NOT HALF AS GOOD AS YOUR MOM.

OFF TO PERCH, SO WILL SEND YOU WING HUGS AND BEAKY KISSES!

Wow that is rough trying to grill and it starts raining. Good your Gpa could finish it up in the garage at least. Our rain is suppose to come tomorrow and most of this week looks like rain every day though probably not the whole day long.
I hope you had a nice enjoyable Memorial Day no matter what you did or where you went. Ours was pretty relaxing and we sat out side and I got a little bath before going out. It was very warm and I dried off quickly too. There was some traffic though not as much as yesterday. I guess people are always wanting to be somewhere else no matter where they are LOL. We were happy to be on Porchville and enjoyed the nice weather though. “All you need is love, but a little millet now and then sure doesn’t hurt.“ Leaving a vote for you~ hugs., Gus (RIP Chi chi)

I LOVED THE PICS OF YOU CLEANING YOUR FEET. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL NO MATTER WHAT YOU ARE DOING, AND MOM LOVED THE SEPIA TONED VERSIONS TOO. SHE THOUGHT THEY WERE VERY ARTISTIC.

YES, THEY DON'T GET MUCH BETTER THAN BECKY, AND SHE IS THE PERFECT TRAINER FOR MY MOM. SHE IS IN HER MID 30s SO SHE'S MORE MATURE THAN A LOT OF THE TRAINERS. AND SHE DID ONE YEAR TOWARDS BEING A PHYSICAL THERAPIST BEFORE DECIDING THAT WAS NOT WHAT SHE WANTED TO DO. SO SHE REALLY HAS THE BASICS DOWN FOR INJURIES AND DAMAGED JOINTS AND LIMBS. SHE KNOWS JUST WHAT TO DO FOR MOM, AND IF AN EXERCISE HURTS AT ALL SHE IMMEDIATELY ADJUSTS IT TO WHAT WILL WORK BETTER. KIDS JUST DON'T KNOW THAT STUFF. WE HAVE A FEW OF THOSE AT OUR GYM TOO, AND MOM WOULD NEVER TRAIN WITH THEM!

HAVE YOU BEEN OVER TO THE CALENDAR PAGE TO READ THE MEMORIAL DAY CELEBRATION THAT POPEYE AND THE SECURITY TEAM PUT TOGETHER? VERY FINE. MAKES ME PROUD TO BE ON THAT TEAM.

DIDE NOT GET OUT FOR A SUNBATH TODAY EITHER. IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE WARM ENOUGH, BUT THE "MAY GRAY" CLOUDS NEVER QUITE BURNED OFF. TOMORROW WILL BE WARMER THOUGH, AND I WILL GET OUTSIDE FOR SURE. AND DAD WILL BE BACK AT WORK, SO I WON'T HAVE TO PUT UP WITH HIM, ALTHOUGH I MUST ADMIT THAT ENCHILADA PIE (TWO ACTUALLY) HE SPENT TWO DAYS PUTTING TOGETHER WAS SOME DARNED TASTY STUFF. I LIKED EVERYTHING ABOUT IT!

YOUR WELL FED HUSBIRD,

  Hi Sweetpepper & Kacey
Hello everybirdie, Sweetie here on this damp, dull Monday herein Napanee, Ontariot. With less then a week left in this month, I wanted to take a brief look at a few of the blogs you left on my page to share with everyone. I have enjoyed reading all of your comments, and encourage everybirdie to share in the discussion. I was reading this morning and came across Miss Chyna's blog. It brought back many memories to me about my beginnings here in the Sky Flock. Chyna was very blessed indeed that her Momma and Daddy found her when they did. Dirty, hungry and sick she was being sold to whoever had the money to take her away. What a shame some people look at us and only see a value sign written in dollars. My story as you all know was different, but in a sense was also based on money.
Sometimes birds arrive into home with hidden illnesses, but there are a lot that were sold or given away because they were sick and their former owners did not or could not afford the money to have them treated by a Veterinarian. I am asking to see how many of you were outwardly ill when re-homed? How many were being housed in sub-standard, dirty conditions? How many of you were without food, or being given poor, low quality or incorrect foods?
My Momma Deb feels there should be standards set for those who retail Companion Parrots whether a private owner or as a business (Pet Stores, Breeders etc). In general the animal welfare laws of our countries are behind the times, lack sufficient depth to make necessary changes, and fall short in the juridical system. Laws set to protect us many times lead to fines, or a probational period of "owning or possessing an animal." Many of you may recall the tragic murder of Ozzie an CAG in Alberta Canada. Stolen from her front porch and brutally abused her murderers, three teens got away with a crime that united the Parrot World to fight for stiffer sentences,and more explicit laws to be written to protect ALL animals.
Many have shared this month that they have seen sick Companion Parrots sold in Pet Stores. Often when this fact is brought to staffs attention, they shrug it off and do nothing. Few chain stores will spend the money to take an ill bird to a Veterinarian for treatment. After all it effects their profit margin. Many times when an ill bird is pointed out it is removed from the display cage to die alone in the back of the store. Some stores even have made it their "policy" that sick animals, birds included be "humanely" killed by placing it into a box in their freezer. That is not humane, freezing to death, alone in the dark. Some stores have admitted that they are told by "head-office" that this is how they are to treat sick animals in the store.
Bird Channel members are a small group, but we have a voice to cry out for changes. We are not a commodity. We are loving, feeling, sensitive Creatures that deserve respect, care and to be loved for who we are!

  HELLO FROM FINNEGAN
Hi SweetPepper,
Don't faint! Yes, it's really me in the feathers. Well, here I am apologizing for being absent again, but Momma says that that’s probably the way it will go all summer and into the fall. Skin brother stayed for a weeklong visit. Yipee! I just love that guy! Momma says she does, too. It’s always so fun to have him around. He makes me laugh! We're expecting quite a bit of company this summer from all the skin sisters, brother and grandkids.

We had our bird club meeting last Sunday. Momma always has to spend Sat. cooking for it ‘cause it’s a yummy potluck. Last Monday Momma took our Goffin’s, Dolly for her visit with Dr. O. in Toledo. That takes up most of a day since it’s an hour and a half drive each way. Dr. O. seems to think that Dolly is improving on her regime of meds. She has ABV and has seizures, but they are improving, and she isn’t having very many anymore.
The weather is getting really nice here and we can be out on our porch everyday now. And guess what? We have baby swans after all! The parents came out on the lake yesterday with their four little cygnets! They are so cute…little tiny gray fluff balls! Just thought you’d like to know. Hope you're having a lovely Memorial Day. Remember our fallen heroes!
Love and Hugs from Finnegan

P.S. Is everybirdie having the same problems we have been having for about a month now? Whenever we click on the votey button, everything below the main pic disappears! This is very frustrating, making it extremely difficult to navigate the pages!

  Hi Sweetpepper
So sorry you had rain! It's been nice here, but it's supposed to rain tonight and tomorrow.
Today we are remembering those who gave their lives for our country. Mom's parents both served, and mom's brother just brought out a newspaper article from WWII honoring her dad and 3 of his brothers who were all serving. the article mentioned the silver star her dad earned, too.
Folks at the center were busy this weekend. They got the shade cloth over a new enclosure where they will keep more hutches for RVS species like ground hogs and skunks, and built 2 new aviaries to share the same space. The good news is that there's only one groundhog out there right now. She also did outdoor raccoon areas today. After a sweaty morning at the outdoor cages, she put up possum food, did dishes and a little filing before coming home to change for the pool.
The afternoon was glorious, lots of folks at the pool, lots of sunshine as well. Now mom is home where she will water plants if it doesn't rain, take care of us, and make a little dinner. Tomorrow morning mom has an eye appointment, so we will try to get online, but if her eyes are dilated or scratchy, maybe not until late in the day.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hi Miss SweetPepper
Dads are weird.
Mom's tip about VCR/DVD is to have them separate--those tend to last longer, but she is influenced by DAD, so...
She has an old VCR that is only occasionally hooked to the TV, mostly the skins watch DVDs anymore. The current DVD player was one she got about a decade ago for $10 on a black Friday--I don't remember any DAYS being black, a few nights...
The DVD player does NOT record, so...
We'll pray mom finds a good one.

  Hi Sweetpepper & Kacey
Hello everybirdie, Sweetie here on this Memorial Day long weekend. I again must say I am sorry for missing yesterday but Momma Deb had to visit a very talented Indian Ringneck named Max to clip his nails for his Momma. Problem is to get there was a very long drive across country. Needless to say Max looks great, and to make up for the nail grooming he received a Chuey's Chewable Bird Toy Creations, round peg boards to play with.
Max's Mom had contemplated adding another fid to the household. However after talking to my Momma she has decided to keep on loving Max and an pass on adopting another Parrot. Max is quite spoiled, and very well cared for and love. I doubt he would have been any to happy to see another Companion Parrot moving in on his home territory.
The conversation over lunch drifted to the topic of Parrots of course. Max's Mom had recently watched a television commercial telling people to Adopt! Don't Shop! for a Companion Parrot. She had never seen the commercial before and it caught her off guard, but also made her begin to think. She does not recall the name of the Rescue other then it was in the USA. How wonderful it would be if Rescues could come together to finance, through donations and Corporate sponsors television advertisements or magazine advertisements encouraging Adoption of Parrots over buying from a store/breeder/bird Mart etc. Companies advertise to cause consumers to purchase brand "A" over brand "B". I am certain it would work on potential owners of Companion Parrots in like manner. If even one Parrot was adopted from each Rescue what a difference it could begin to make.
Parrot ownership ( ugh, I dislike that term) is a privilege, not a right. When the World begins to realize this truth, we Parrots will begin to gain the respect we rightfully deserve. Our friendship can not be purchased, forced from us or bullied out of us. We are wild flying Creations that were meant to spend our days being Parrots, not a cage ornament or room accent. While on FB today I saw someone's cool off-handed comment to a Parront who has just lost a fid. Suggesting she buy another to replace her baby. It is sad to think this person is someone who has a bird. Love from a Companion Parrot can not be purchased with all the money in the World. You have to earn it, on our terms.
NOW FOR TODAY'S QUESTION; Please share with us one or two of the hurls you encountered when first bringing home your fid(s). Also how about some of the best, most touching moments as well. The greatest over-coming moment when you just knew you and your Fid were happily bonded for life!

  Hi SweetPepper
Dad just did burgers today ... just in time before the rain! Looks like the BBQ pork will be done in the rain on Monday :(
It was nice here until around 2pm. Then it got dark and cold. The rain didn't start until 10pm. Looks like the t-storms will be from 1am thru 1pm ... oh joy! No patio time for me! Hurry summer!
Hugs
Chyna

  Hi Sweetpepper
Mom always puts my outside cage half in the sun and half in the shade so I have the choice too. I got a bath today and sat out in the sun to dry again today too.
Yesterday when mom went down to visit with skin brother and family moms DIL gave her some peppermint to plant and some hens and peeps. I never knew you could plant hens and peeps but mom said these arent the kind I am thinking of and they are plants. Mom used to have them a long time ago and had them in the container with holes to grow out of but think its too cold here in the winter and hers died. She will make sure she takes these ones in come winter. DIL peppermint grows like crazy too but mom has hers in a container so hoping it lives and thrives too. “Goodbyes are not forever, goodbyes are not the end, They simply mean I’ll miss you until we meet again.“ Goodbye from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Come visit me, Gus--Chi chi ♥ RIP & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  MY SUNBATHING BEAUTY
I LOVE THE WAY THAT YOUR FEATHERS LOOK AFTER YOUR TIME IN THE SUN. YOU ARE ALWAYS BEAUTIFUL, BUT NOW YOU GLOW.

I GOT OUTSIDE TODAY TOO! MOM HAD TO SHOWER WHEN SHE GOT HOME FROM THE GYM, BECAUSE SHE WAS JUST TOO SWEATY. SHE COULDN'T STAND HERSELF! THEN WE GOT OUTSIDE ABOUT 1:15, AND IT WAS A PERFECT 72 DEGREES. NOT WARM ENOUGH TO SOAK ME DOWN FIRST, BECAUSE THERE WAS A BREEZE. HOWEVER EACH DAY OVER THE NEXT WEEK WILL BE WARMER SO SOON....

YOUR MOM DEFINITELY NEEDS TO CANCEL THOSE SESSIONS. MY MOM PAYS FOR HER PACKAGE IN ADVANCE, ALTHOUGH IF SHE EVER WANTED TO CANCEL THEY WOULD REFUND A PRORATED AMOUNT. THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN AS LONG AS BECKY IS THERE. TODAY SHE DID A SPECIAL WORK OUT THAT IS LIKE A PYRAMID. STARTS WITH TWO EXERCISES, THEN REPEAT THOSE TWO AND ADD A THIRD, AND THEN THOSE THREE AND ADD A FOURTH TILL YOU REACH SIX EXERCISES AND YOU ARE DONE. HOWEVER EACH ONE IS FOR A WHOLE MINUTE. MOM WAS REALLY POOPED WHEN SHE GOT DONE, BUT IT WAS A GOOD ONE BECAUSE MOM'S ARTHRITIS IN HER LEFT SHOULDER WAS FLARING BEFORE SHE GOT THERE, SO BECKY MADE SURE THERE WEREN'T ANY OVERHEAD MOTIONS IN ANY OF THE SETS. SHE TAKES GOOD CARE OF MOM, BUT THEN MOM HAD ZUMBA. DANIELA IS THE EASIEST, "DANCIEST" TEACHER, BUT MOM WAS STILL VERY SWEATY BY THE TIME SHE GOT HOME. NO WONDER SHE HAD TO SHOWER FIRST THING!

MOM DUG AN OLD PIC OF ME WITH A FLAG FOR THE HOLIDAY. IT WAS THE BEST SHE COULD FIND, BUT SHE WILL BE TAKING SOME NEW PICS OF ME SOON. DAD JUST RECHARGED THE BATTERIES FOR THE CAMERA, SO NOW SHE JUST HAS TO GET ME TO HOLD STILL. FIRST ATTEMPT WAS A BUST; I FLEW ALL AROUND THE ROOM AS SOON AS I SAW THE CAMERA.

  Hi SweetPepper
Dad is just sensitive to electromagnetic waves--they make him tingle. Fortunately he seems to be getting a bit better after months of dealing with limited electrical usage. (He still won't let mom plug in the clock radios in the house for 24/7--just for when she wants to hear something.)
Mom thinks there really is something else going on, but he is a man, and KNOWS, so...
We have not had difficulties with WiFi here, just downloading 'buggy' programs and going to not so good websites. But that happens even with just a modem. I believe one can turn off the WiFi on the modem. Ours is turned off, and we attach the WiFi modem to it.(We already have a password on that one)
What is important is what works for YOU--at least until the company or government deem otherwise and stop current service.
