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
Ready for some more hot chocolate?
I think we'll get hit cause we are on that NW corner off of Lake Michigan. That's why we get so much snow.
But, I bet your G-pa is getting his skis ready!
That massage and hot tub sounds heavenly to me. We need to have lunch after too.
The silly weather guy says we should get a few inches of the cold white stuff on Friday. How can we have snow when others are enjoying 80 to 90 degrees with sun? This is so wrong! I say it's time to sit on the perch in my footie pj's and drink more hot chocolate.

WELL, WE ARE SUPPOSED TO GET THAT 4 LETTER WORD ON FRIDAY--THEY SAY SHOWERS, BUT YOU NEVER KNOW IF THESE WEATHER GUYS ARE GETTING IT RIGHT. WE SURE DO HOPE THAT WE DON'T SEE THAT STUFF FOR A COUPLE MONTHS.

YEAH, MOM KNOWS WHAT YOUR MOM MEANS ABOUT NOT NEEDING TO GO TO THE DENTIST FOR 6 MONTHS! SHE SPENT SO MUCH TIME AT THE DENTIST OVER THE PAST COUPLE YEARS...AND A WHOLE LOT OF $$$, TOO.

STAY WARM, AND THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HALLOWEENIE CARD! COOL. CAN'T BELIEVE IT IS NEARLY NOVEMBER.

  October BOTM POST number twenty-three
Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with our Humpday BOTM Adventure Post. What a relief to see Spot back with us, only to have the the rest of you disappear before our eyes. There is something funny going on around here.
I was just about to cheer for joy that we had found Spot when I heard Cookie say, "I wish I had a jelly donut" and zuzam he became a jelly donut.
"NO LIZZIE" I screamed just in time to stop Lizzie from making a quick snack of our friend cookie. " that's Cookie? I think!"
Everywhere I looked there was something new where a moment before a birdie had stood. Sky was a big green dill pickle, there were cookies, peanuts, shoes, and all sorts of funny things, and of course Cookie the jelly-filled doughnut. Now, I know that this corn maze has been one unusual adventure but there was definitely something odd happening, and I was determined to find out what. With Spot, BonBon, Jenny-Lynn and a few other remaining birdies, we carefully gathered our friends up, and placed them into our backpacks to take to the Castle. BB threw Sky, the pickle, over her shoulder. "I told him if he didn't stop eating so many one day he'd turn into a pickle."
"Ok, we have everyone? Let's get to the castle. I know that the Book of Magic spells there must have a way to turn them back to themselves." to myself I said "I hope!" and off we went along the wide road. The Castle drew ever closer as we hurried to reach it's safety and save our friends.
Finally at the Castle, we made no waste of time to rush in the gates and into the main hallway. Queen Angel was there to greet us. "Where is everybirdie? Did you enjoy the Corn Maze?"
With a quick explanation about our friends we headed to the Magic Room, a place created by Queen Angel during her stay this month. As we filed into the room, lauded down with the backpacks filled with our changed friends we saw Tango there, dressed as a pretty Fairy. She was startled to see all of us there in the Magic Room.
"Hello Jesse, Hi everyone, how do you like my Fairy Halloween Costume?" she asks happily, then in her wings we saw it, Kiddo's Merlin the Wizard's magic spell book. Tango happily reads a spell from it, as butterflies and flowers magically appear.
"Tango, don't do that" Jenny-Lynn says quickly, " that Book is filled with Spells and magic incantations that only Kiddo knows. Then she remembered the Magic wand that had been Kiddo and she reaches into her backpack and retrieves it carefully. She takes the big Book of Spells from Tango and wing-tips through the pages. "Nothing. Nothing here about changing birds back to themselves.' she continues to look when suddenly she sees the page she was looking for, "here, this is it, " How to Undo What's Been Done" She reads it carefully. It says we need a Wizard?"
"Oh No, we have none right now. WAIT! Maybe a Fairy will do?" Jesse says eggcitedly looking at Tango

  Hi Sweetpepper
Both the strollers fold up small but still take up some room though too so know what you mean about not having the room for them.
Mom has given up on putting me to bed on time any more. She thinks once the clocks are changed this weekend things will get back to normal. I do start complaining and ready an hour later then what mom thinks is my bedtime and go then pretty easy. Mom says when she goes to bed its hard falling asleep for her too and of course in the morning its really hard getting up too when its so dark out. Dad is one of these that follow the clock and once he is up he is so noisy everyone is up. I say mom and I should have a nap once he goes down to the trail in the morning LOL. “Best friends are siblings God forgot to give us.” Leaving a vote for you~ your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

MOM SHOWED ME THE EMAIL WITH THE GIFT CERTIFICATE FROM YOU. IT WAS JUST PERFECT, BECAUSE THAT IS THE BEST STORE FOR BUYING TOY PARTS FROM. I REALLY DO LIKE THE HOME MADE TOYS THE BEST, ALTHOUGH YOUR TWO PLAY MATS ARE STILL HIGH ON MY FAVORITES, AND THE BASKET (WHAT THERE IS LEFT OF IT) GETS A LOT OF USE TOO. I LOVE THROWING THE TOYS OUT OF THE BASKET ON TO THE FLOOR FOR MOM TO PICK THEM UP.

NOW I AM CLIMBING ALL OVER MOM AS SHE TAKES MY DICTATION. I JUST CHIRPED AT HER TO MAKE SURE SHE TELLS YOU HOW MUCH I LOVE MY WIFEBIRD, AND NOW I AM CLIMBING BACK DOWN FROM HER SHOULDER TO HER KNEE. NOT A SINGLE FLIGHT OVER TO THE DRESSER. SHE IS WONDERING WHY I AM BEING SO GOOD, BUT HEY! I KNOW IT IS PRESENT TIME. I AM NOT AS DUMB AS DAD SAYS I LOOK! WHO'S A BIRD BRAIN?

IT IS IN THE UPPER 80s HERE TODAY. THEY WERE PREDICTING 90, BUT MOM IS SURE IT DIDN'T GET THERE. WE DID MY SUNBATH AT 12:30, AND IT WAS WARM BUT STILL VERY PLEASANT. MOM DID SIT IN THE SHADE THOUGH. SHE TRIES TO BE SMART ABOUT UV ON HER SKIN. WEIRD HOW IT IS SO GOOD FOR US, AND NOT SO GOOD FOR HUMANS....

  Hi Sweetpepper
Our weather guys said the same thing, that dirty filthy 4 letter word starting with S. It's too early!
Yesterday mom went out with her sister to Barnes and Noble, she got 2 ebooks for $6.99 each, including the new Anne Rice! She also bought other books, of course, because it's never enough with her! They had sandwiches instead of whole dinners, then came home where we had mom for the rest of the night. Today she's going to get a haircut, then pick up that lamp. Remember that lamp? Well, it isn't the cord, the store called and said they can't repair it. She will talk to the guy today and see what's wrong. If it's a matter of finding a lamp repair place, she will give it a shot, because it's an Ott light, not cheap!
It's gotten a lot cooler and really cloudy today, temps are going to be in the 50s. Yesterday it was around 80 and gorgeous. Oh well, it IS fall, after all.
I hope you are having a good day and getting snuggles and kisses. Hugs, Falco

I think I'll stay in the spa hot tub! I'll just move right in .... mom will probably be with me too!
We had rain again today but, not any t-storms!
Oh yes, I have my winter feathers ready to go.
I really can't see you getting snow either. I think the UP will get hit for sure and probably us.
Can you believe that they are predicting snow for Friday? Snow on Halloween isn't fun up here.
Sit back on the perch and have a cup of hot chocolate with me.

  Hi Sweetpepper
It was windy here and got worse as the day wore on too. Bet Gma enjoys going for a walk and getting out on the nice days too.
Today was a warm day and after mom got home from getting groceries we went for a walk on the back street. Mom put me in another carrier and used a different umbrella stroller and I sat backwards in most of the trip so didn’t see much of anything at all. Mom says from now on we will use the stroller we always use. I like to look up and make sure mom is back there and I can do that since there is clear plastic on top just big enough to see and know mom is there. I say if its not broke don’t fix it mom!! “Best friends are siblings God forgot to give us.” Leaving a vote for you~ your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  October BOTM POST number twenty-two
Hi everybirdie, Jesse here with your Too'sday BOTM Adventure Post. It's a greyt day with the Castle so close, and the BC lake and all these squawk-atiels flying by with birdie's blogs. We are so close to safety with makes a bird happy.
Spot yells as loud as his Tiel voice will allow him, and realizes that nobirdie can hear him. No birdie that is but Lizzie, the Dragon can. Dragon's are magical so she can hear Spot calling for help.
Spot thinks to himself, " I must get their attention that I'm here, I KNOW what to do! "Spot decides maybe he can touch the other birds! "If they can't hear me, or see me, maybe they can feel me!" He runs up to BB and touches her on the leg.
"Hey! whose messing with my leg! " Bb yells startled by the sudden touch. This gets Sky's attention and he runs over and looks around! He searches but nobirdie is there.
"I don't see anybirdy, BB. Maybe you imagined it! " Sky tells her, trying to calm her down.
Spot tugs on Jesse's tail and he yelps "Owwww! " Jesse whirls around quickly, but nobody is there.
Everybirdy starts looking for the invisible toucher!
Suddenly, Jenny says," hey, whoever it is just beat out Morse code for SOS! Now they're beating out "It's me Spot! I'm invisible!"
"Good grief, Spot! Well, come on, hold my wing and we'll go to the castle and figure this out" Spot reaches out and grasps Jenny-Lynn's wing, and holds on tight, afraid he'll be left behind.
Jesse frowns as he continues to walk towards the Castle. As he walks he thinks about his missing friends. "How could birdie's vanish inside a corn maze?"
"Jesse, we're almost to the Castle. Once we get help we'll go back to find Sugar, Cori, Cydney, Snowflake, Gus, Pepper, Apache, Sweetpepper and Pearl. We'll find them." Hulk says
"LOOK!" BonBon calls out, " I can see the Castle walls. SPOT, we'll be there soon, and we'll figure out how to make you visible again."
"I can see him" Lizzie tells Kaji and Gus.
"That's because you're a Magic Dragon Lizzie." Kaji tells her with a smile.
As they walk, Sky begins to think about the pickles he'll eat once he gets to the Castle and they find their friends. "I wish I had a pickle right now." "Phuuufffff. Sky turns into a Pickle"
BB screams, as she watches Sky change into a pickle. Just as she sees her Sky change, Chyna turns into a pair of comfortable shoes, Panther turns into an Army Tank, Kiddo changes into a magic wand, Dixie and Little Angel become a scooter. Everybirdie who made an "I wish..." had become what they had wished.
"OH NO!" BonBon cries "I wish I could see Spot right now" Spot appears before her. "Can you see me Spot?" BonBon asks.
"Of course I can" Spot says, hugging his fister, then remembering he isn't suppose to like her too much, he straightens up, " where'd all these things come from?"

WELL, MOM DOESN'T DO ANY OF THE JUMPING MOVES IN ZUMBA, BECAUSE IT ISN'T GOOD THE ARTHRITIS IN HER SPINE. HOWEVER THE TWISTING MOVES ARE OK SINCE THE 8 WEEKS ARE UP FROM HER TUMMY SURGERY. SHE LIKES THE WAY THEY WORK HER OBLIQUES, BUT IF SHE HAD YOUR MOM'S BACK SHE COULDN'T DO THEM EITHER.

MOM STAYED HOME FROM ZUMBA TODAY AND HELPED HER FRIEND WITH AN IMPORTANT PAPER IN HER MASTER'S PROGRAM./ TO BE HONEST MOM DIDN'T REALLY FEEL LIKE GOING, EVEN THOUGH THIS IS HER FAVORITE TEACHER. HARD TO MOTIVATE WHEN SHE ISN'T ALSO SEEING THE TRAINER.

WE HAD A VERY NICE SUNBATH AT 11:15, AND THEN WE CAME IN AT NOON FOR LUNCH. MOM IS DOING MUCH BETTER ABOUT REMEMBERING TO EAT. WONDER IF SHE WILL START GAINING WEIGHT BACK. NOT SO FAR, BUT WE SHALL SEE. WE HAD A TAMALE WITH A RICE/CORN/PEA MIXTURE AS THE SIDE DISH, AND I LIKED IT A LOT. ESPEICALLY THE CORN!

  Hi Sweetpepper
We are glad mom's dental work is done, that's always a relief. Your good weather is here today! I can't wait to get to the spa, I need a good massage, I think. Helping mom with the yard work was pretty tiring, even though I helped from inside the house, and mostly by yelling.
It's a beautiful day today, when mom walked the dogs she got too warm in her jeans and came home to change into shorts. She is still wearing her squirrel whisperer tee, though, in honor of squirrels this month. Later today, mom will go out with her sister for a late lunch and a little shopping. Both of them got Barnes and Noble coupons in the mail, and since that's one of their favorite stores, they will go there, and maybe a few other places as well.
We need to have our cages scrubbed today, according to mom, so that means we'll be spending time rearranging things to our liking.
Mom got a pomegranate and cut into it today. It's too bad I won't eat it, Willie, Maxine, and Peppino dove right into their portions! (That's one of the reasons for the scrub down today, heehee.)
I hope you are enjoying some good weather today, and getting lots of scritches and cuddles, too. Hugs, Falco

I heard that the spa will have pumpkins for us to carve this week. That will be fun. I'm so ready to hit the hot tub! They say we will have snow on Friday .... oh goodie :(

We had really bad thunder booms and flashy lightnings for 5 hours! It started early when it was dark. I was scared cause the house was shaking. Then it was just a hard rain all day with another t-storm in the afternoon. Looks like late tonight until 6am we'll have more t-storms. I'm NOT liking this! How is a bird suppose to get a good sleep?

OH, DEAR HEAVENS, THE PACKERS PLAYED JUST AS BAD AS THE BEARS YESTERDAY. IT WAS TOTALLY PATHETIC. OR THE SAINTS CAME OUT OF THE SLUMP THEY WERE IN. OR BOTH. IT WAS NOT GOOD, AND RODGERS HAD A HAMSTRING INJURY THAT MADE HIS BALANCE OFF ON PASSES.

IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE NEAR 70 TODAY, AND GUESS IT GOT TO BE 72, BUT IT WAS NOT THAT WARM NEAR THE LAKE WHERE MOM WORKS. SHE WAS ACTUALLY FEELING CHILLED, SO GO FIGURE THAT ONE OUT. ANYWAY, BY THE END OF THE WEEK WE ARE SUPPOSED TO ONLY HAVE A HIGH OF 44. GUESS IT IS GETTING TO BE THAT ICKY TIME OF YEAR.

The cast the grand had when she broke her thumb she wanted to keep and skin sis put it out in the garage but it stunk so soon got pitched so this one got pitched right away LOL.
The plumber told skin sis he would be there the end of this week. Skin sis said she is happy they have two other bathrooms with showers since the wait is so long. Guess he is pretty busy and just hope he does a good job though. Today was a pretty day here and mom hung a few things out on the line but looks like that is all going to change by the end of the week. The weather guesser is even saying we could see some of that 4 letter word by weekend!! Mom is hoping he is wrong cause its way too soon for that to happen already. “Best friends are siblings God forgot to give us.” Leaving a vote for you~ your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

SO GLAD YOU HAD A NICE DAY. I HAD A VERY NICE DAY TODAY. MOM SPENT THE MORNING BEFORE THE GYM WITH ME, THEN WHEN SHE GOT OUT OF THE SHOWER AFTER GETTING BACK HOME WE WENT RIGHT OUTSIDE FOR MY SUNBATH. SHE DIDN'T WANT TO DELAY, SINCE IT WAS PREDICTED FOR A HIGH OF 81 TODAY, AND AT 12:30 IT WAS 77. THAT WAS JUST PERFECT, AND WE HAD A GREYT TIME OUTSIDE. I DON'T EVEN QUIBBLE ABOUT GETTING INTO THE CARRIER ANYMORE. I KNOW THAT IS THE ONLY WAY I WILL GET MY SUSNSHINE. MOM SAYS MY FEATHERS LOOK GREAT, AND DAD CAN'T TEASE ME ABOUT A BALD SPOT. ALTHOUGH HE SAYS WAIT TILL THE MIDDLE OF WINTER, AND WE SHALL SEE. MOM WILL DO HER BEST TO GET ME OUTSIDE EVERY CHANCE WE HAVE.

AFTER THE SUNBATH MOM AND I SHARED A ZITI MARANARA LUNCH. THIS WAS MOM'S FIRST VENTURE WITH TOMATO SAUCE, SO SHE WAS A LITTLE NERVOUS. HOWEVER THERE HASN'T BEEN A SIGN OF HEARTBURN. SEEMS LIKE THE SURGERY REALLY WORKED AND HER ACID REFLUX IS GONE! AFTER SO MANY YEARS, SHE JUST ISN'T USED TO IT. SHE AND DAD WERE TALKING ABOUT IT LAST NIGHT. THINGS SHE THINKS ARE WEIRD, HE SAYS ARE NORMAL FOR EVERYONE ELSE.

MOM IS LASTING THRU ALL OF THE TEACHERS ZUMBA CLASSES NOW, AND HER TRAINER SAYS SHE IS REALLY LOOKING STRONG AT THE WORKOUTS. THEY ARE DOING ABS ONCE A WEEK NOW, AND RANGE OF MOTION ONCE, AND LEGS THE THIRD DAY. SO SHE GETS A FULL BODY WORK OUT OVER THE WEEK. MOM REALLY LOVES HER TRAINER, AND SHE IS GOING TO TAKE HER TO LUNCH SOON FOR HER BIRTHDAY WHICH IS ON THE 29TH. PERFECT TIMING SINCE MOM CAN EAT WHATEVER SHE WANTS NOW.

  Hi Sweetpepper
That sounds like a really nice walk, and to see turtles out sunning themselves is cool.
What a football game yesterday! It was a real quarterback battle, and the Steelers tried to give it away in the second half, but they ultimately prevailed. Mom doesn't remember seeing such a high scoring pro game ever.
Today at the center, mom did all the RVS animals, because she was the only RVS person on the schedule for the day. She cleaned the outdoor raccoon cages, then went in to find the bat. At first she didn't see it, she peeked under the towels hanging from the sides of its terrarium and it wasn't there. Then she took out the tiny lid that was in the bottom of the cage with water in it. She was a little worried that the bat had escaped at this point. When she removed the water, she noticed a tiny lump in the towel at the bottom of the cage. She lifted it carefully, and the bat was there. It was laying directly on the heating pad, so the poor little one must have been cold last night. There was a frost here, but the furnace at the center usually kicks on. Maybe the heat didn't extend into the RVS room, or the bat just needed some extra heat. Anyway, it took a bit of effort to get it to start eating, but once it got started, it ate 20 mealworms. It's hard to imagine, but mom thinks with 20 mealworms you could probably construct a whole bat, so she doesn't know where the bat puts all that food. Maybe they have hollow legs or something, heehee.
If you think we birds eat a lot, you haven't seen bats eat.
After the center, mom mailed a package, then got gas and went shopping for a little lunch. Now she's home with us, and we get to blog. It's another beautiful day here, crisp and cool, but sunny. The lawn guys came today and cleaned up all the leaves, so the lawn looks as nice as the gardens do now.
I hope you are having a good day, getting some sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  October BOTM POST number twenty-one
Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with your Monday BOTM Adventure Post It was awesome to see so many of our friends at the Haunted Castle Tour Milonga on Saturday evening. We had a frightfully good time.
Sky scrambles up the ladder after the others are all safely together on the wide road above. Looking around carefully he sees that it indeed appears to be the road that leads tot he castle, the help in finding the others who are missing and Lizzie's kitchen, and an endless supply of pickles.
"Ok Jesse, let's get moving, we need to get to the Castle and get the Macaw guards. If we come back soon as we can, we'll all be a safely home by nightfall" Sky says encouragingly
BonBon tugs on Jesses wing! "Uncle Jesse? Are we gonna find Spot now?"
"We're sure to find him and all the others and if not, George the Tiger will help us find them!"
"OK," says BonBon, a little mollified.
Sky picks her up and says, "come on little one! You'll be safe with me!" Off they go down the wide road! Sky stops to pick up Dixie and L'il Angel, placing them onto his other shoulder. With the Castle so close everybirdie feels much happier and certain that all will be ok in the end.
"We should be at the Castle really soon. The Squawk-atiels are flying past more often now, we're definitely heading in the right direction." Jenny-Lynn exclaims
Spot hears the sound of the others in the distance and gets up from beneath the tall oak tree. He'd done what his Momma Rea had always told him to do if he got lost, " stay where you are until I find you" He was relieved to know that the others would be there soon, and he'd be safely back with his friends. He listens and can hear his Poppa Sky, Jenny-Lynn and even his fister BonBon. He smiles knowing she's so worried about him. "I know she'll never admit it" he says to himself.
"Come on everyone, let's hurry, the sooner we arrive at the Castle the faster we find help in locating our missing friends, and my wife-bird Sweetpepper" Kiddo calls out as he hurries to keep up to Jesse.
Spot watches as in the distance the group of friends grows closer and closer. He decides he should head their way and rejoin them and having made the decision heads off towards the south. Spot quickens his pace as the group grows nearer to him. He begins to call out, trying to get their attention.
"Did you hear something?" Lizzie asks Willie, " I'm sure I just hear something."
Willie looks in the direction Lizzie points, but seeing nothing he shakes his head, " No, maybe you thought you heard something Lizzie. No one's there."
Lizzie frowns. She is pretty sure she'd heard someone calling out for help. She walks along, listening to hear the voice again. "THERE!" she says, hearing Spot calling once more. Willie looks once more, still seeing nothing. "Lizzie, you're hearing things"
Spot calls out again, but no one, except Lizzie looks in his direction. "They can't hear me!"

  Hi Sweetpepper
We are back again and sure missed chatting with you all last night. I lost my typist so my gal Suzi was helping me out at the milonga last night and sure was glad of that! The grand got her cast off her arm and sure was happy about that. She would spray perfume on it cause she said it stunk LOL. The doctor said the x-rays looked good and she needs to take it easy for a week at least so that means no batting at softball. She can still pitch since she is right handed and this was the left wrist. “The only thing wrong with fids, is that they can’t live forever.“ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  MY ENCHANTING WIFEBIRD
LAST NIGHT SURE WAS A LOT OF FUN, BUT I DON'T THINK MOM AND I HAVE EVER WORKED HARDER ON A MILONGA. WE WERE POSTING THE PICS FOR THE TOUR, BECAUSE TAZ'S MOM HAD AN ERRAND SHE HAD TO DO. THEN WE DID BOTH THE ANNOUNCING AND THE POSTING OF THE AWARDS. IT GOT A LITTLE CRAZY, WHICH IS WHY I HAD TO TAKE A BREAK. THANKS SO MUCH FOR COVERING FOR ME.

TODAY WAS A NICE DAY WITH A SUNBATH AT 11, AND THEN LEFTOVER CHICKEN BOWL (ONE OF MY FAVORITES) FOR LUNCH. YAY! MOM REMEMBERED TO EAT. OK, SO DAD REMINDED HER. BUT THEN HE ANNOYED ME BY TRIMMING THE TREE NEXT TO MY WINDOW. IT IS OFF TO THE SIDE OF MY WINDOW, BUT I COULD STILL HEAR HIM, AND THEN HE HAD THE NERVE TO COME OVER AND TAP ON THE GLASS WHEN HE SAW ME BANGING ON IT. I DID MY BEST TO BREAK THROUGH AND ATTACK HIM, BUT THE GLASS NEVER BROKE. MAYBE NEXT TIME.

THEN MOM RAN ERRANDS, WHICH I FORGAVE BECAUSE IT INCLUDED TRADER JOE'S TO PICK UP MY RAW ALMONDS AND CASHEWS. MOM ALSO GOT SOME FRESH MANGO AND PINEAPPLE, SO I WILL BE HAVING THAT WITH MY BREAKFAST TOMORROW.

AND NOW I AM SITTING ON MOM'S KNEE DICTATING THIS LOVE LETTER TO MY DARLING. I KNOW WE HAD FUN LAST NIGHT, BUT THE BEST PART WAS THE NIGHT CAP AT THE DRAGON CAVE. NOTHING BETTER THAN A CUDDLE IN FRONT OF THE FIRE WITH MY SWEETIE.

  Hi Sweetpepper
It's gorgeous out today, and that's the reason we're late logging on to BC. Mom went grocery shopping for us this morning after she walked the dogs, then she decided to tackle that tangle of rosebushes again. There are really 3 of them which grew together and got all snarled. Today is the third day she worked on it. Her neighbor across the street saw her with the branch loppers, and he came over with his chain saw. He had that mess cut down in seconds! Mom thinks she should have bought a chain saw, except she's kind of afraid of keeping gasoline in the garage.
Anyway the bushes are gone, the debris is cleaned up, mom took a shower, and here we are at last! We want to thank Kiddo, Taz, Lizzie, Sam, Queen Angel, and anyone else who contributed to making the milonga a memorable one last night. We all had a great time, even though, as usual, we didn't get to talk to everybirdie we wanted to greet. We were sure scared on that tour!
We will be helping mom watch the Steelers later today. I hope they win, so mom will be cheering instead of screaming at the TV.
I hope You are having a good day, with lots of sun and scritches coming your way. Hugs, Falco

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

  October BOTM POST number twenty
Hi everybirdie, Jesse here with your Sunday BOTM Adventure Post. What a relief to know we are finally back heading towards Bird Channel Castle. The only real problem is we still haven't seem the Castle, and our friends are still missing.
" It is definitely Bird Channel, and I know we have to head this way" Jesse says, " Squawk-atiels only remove blogs they never bring them, so we go this way" Jesse points to the North. He came from that direction."
A wave of hope fills everybirdie's heart as they began their trek towards the North, and the BC Castle. Knowing they were back on BC, allowed them to enjoy the walk with the babbling brook beside them, and the Castle somewhere ahead of them. The girls pick daisies making pretty necklaces and leg bands for the boy birds.
"Jesse, I can't wait to get back to the Castle. This has been one scary adventure." Dixie says as he and Little Angel walk together. ""we need to get back to find the others."
"It shouldn't be too far now." Jesse replies, scanning the horizon for the Castle.
"Sky, I think something is wrong." BB whispers, " we should be at the Castle by now"
"I bet it is right over that hill there" Sky says, pointing to a hill that lies to the northeast.
Jesse stops to get his bearings, climbing up a small hill he stares a long time into the distance before saying, " I see a ladder ahead to the right. We need to climb it,to get onto the road and continue to the North. If we stay here in the meadow we have a very long ways to go to reach the Castle.
Panther joins Jesse on the hill. They both look at the ladder for a while. Then they look towards the North. The Castle is no where to be seen ahead. The ladder looks well used, and reaches a wide roadway above. It has to be the main road that leads back to the Castle. They decide to climb it themselves first and check it out, before allowing the others to follow them. Too many birdies have already vanished. After briefly explaining their plans to the group, Jesse and Panther lead the others towards the ladder.
After a quick walk, they reach the ladder sitting invitingly, leading upwards to the wide road above. Sky tries hard to discourage Panther and Jesse from climbing it, but to no avail. Jesse leaves his backpack on the ground and begins the long climb to the top with Panther right behind him. As they reach the top, they scramble up onto the road. It is a wide well worn road, one that has been traveled many times, and recently too. It has to be the road that leads to the BC Castle. They decide to explore a little before allowing the others to join them. They travel down the road and see that the BC lake is there, safe as always to their right, and the Castle, oh the Castle is there too, sitting high upon it's hill.
"OK, come on, we're back, we've found our way back." Jesse calls as he high fours Panther. Sky grabs Jesse's pack, and helps the others up the ladder before following behind.......

  Hi SweetPepper
That sure was another fun Milonga but, a scary one! I think every bird had a good time.
Oh yes, the animals in our woods know to come to our patio door for treats. They sometimes "knock" on the glass and look in ... so cute.
It was a partly sunny day and we had 55 degrees! I don't know what got into me today, but I had 3 birdy time-outs! Mom says I'd better get up on the right side of the perch on Sunday.

  October BOTM POST number nineteen
Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with today's Haunted Castle Milonga day BOTM Adventure Post. The three doors opened. As we look we see that behind Miss Ronnie's door, lightening flashes, and rain falls heavily, behind BonBon's the sun shines, and the sound of a babbling brook can be heard, and behind Piddy and Paddy's door, Jesse and the others can see that everything looks very beautiful, too beautiful in fact, sunny, and bright. It surely must be the right door!
"Can we go through this door? I love sunshine! And maybe Spot's there" BonBon squeals delighted to start on a new adventure.
"No, wait!!" says Jesse"We don't know what's back there yet. Piddy and Paddy, back away from that door! Let me look first, to make sure it's safe to enter it."
All of them wait to give Jesse a chance to see what's inside. Jesse looks carefully through the first door with the lightening,"nope, not this one!" The second door appears safe, but that could be an illusion! " let me see, I'll check door three too!" Finally he looks through the third door and screams!
All the birdies drop to the ground and cover their ears and shut their eyes! What could make Jesse scream like that?
Jesse screams so loud it scares everybirdie. Backing away from the door Jesse's face is white with fright. " Ok, definitely not door number three. Jesse slams the third door shut just in time. As the door closes a heavy thud echos from inside as something hits it hard. A loud, frightening roar sounds then all becomes eerily quiet once more.
"Told ya three doors is never a good idea." Kaji says
"Alright we have only one option. Door number two it is" Jesse announces, as he picks up his backpack, and waits for the others to get ready. "Follow me, we're gonna find Spot and head for the Castle to get help" Jesse steps boldly towards the second door. As he is about to go through, BonBon leaps past and disappears inside. Everybirdie watches in shock as she vanishes out of sight. Just as they are ready to change their minds, they hear from inside a tiny Budgie voice, "Come on, what are you waitin' for?" Jesse smiles, as he follows the voice. He steps through the door, and begins to fall, slipping and sliding down a chute. He hits the bottom with a splat. Standing up, he fluffs his feathers before calling out, " Ok, follow me, it's just a slide, it's fun.
One by one the other Adventurers step through the tiny door in the cloud, slipping and sliding to the bottom where BonBon, Jesse and the others awaiting them. They look around and can see that they are in a meadow filled with daisies. A gentle brook runs through it, and the sun is bright in the blue sky above. A lone Oak tree stands on a tiny hill.
"It looks like Bird Channel to me" Sky says looking intently around him. Above in the sky a Squaw-atiel flies past carrying somebirdies blog. "YEP, definitely BC, but which way do we go now?"

THOSE TENDERS ARE SO AWESOME! LIZZIE IS VERY THANKFUL FOR THE HELP, TOO. THE MILONGA IS SO COOL TONIGHT! ALL OF THE COSTUMES ARE SO SUPERB! MOM DID NOT GET A CHANCE TO VOTE--SHE FORGOT TO GET OVER THERE (SHAME ON HER).

IT WAS SOOOO WINDY OUT THERE TODAY! WE GOT TO 68 DEGREES, BUT IT FELT CHILLIER. I DID NOT GET TO THE MARKET, BUT MOM TOOK ME TO GOODWILL. WE DROVE THE CITY STREETS, AND I LOVED THE RIDE IN THE CAR. THAT WAS SO SUPER! PAULA ASKED ABOUT ME, AND SHE SAID SHE KNEW THAT I WOULD NOT BE COMING BECAUSE OF THE WIND. SHE SAID IT WAS BETTER TO KEEP ME SAFE AND NOT GET SICK.

BETTER GET BACK TO THE MILONGA...AND MOM HAS TO DO SOME WORK TONIGHT SO I GUESS I WILL LET HER.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR SWEET WORDS ABOUT MAKING 30K VOTES. SUGAR DID CONGRATULATE ME, BUT NO PARTY. I DON'T MIND THOUGH, BECAUSE WITH THE MILONGA TONIGHT I REALLY DON'T HAVE THE TIME. BESIDES IT IS JUST BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN ACTIVE LONGER THAN MOST BIRDIES. I THINK I HAVE THE LOWEST PAGE NUMBER OF ANY BIRD WHO IS STILL DOING BC TODAY.

THE MILONGA IS GOING TO BE GREAT TONIGHT. THE SCRIPT FOR THE HAUNTED CASTLE TOUR WAS WRITTEN FOR QUEEN ANGEL BY HER VERY TALENTED MAMA DEB, AND YOU KNOW HOW GOOD SHE IS AT WRITING ADVENTURES. VERRRY SCARY!! AND THE CONTEST WINNERS WILL BE QUITE PLEASED I AM SURE. IF THERE IS A WAY TO DO THIS AGAIN NEXT YEAR, I WILL HAVE A CATEGORY FOR SCARY AND ONE FOR ACTION HERO. THAT WAY MORE BIRDIES CAN WIN A PRIZE.

MOM KNOWS ALL ABOUT CLOTHES GETTING LOOSER. THE 14 PDS SHE LOST (STILL GONE!!) CAME OFF ALL OVER, BUT HER WAIST IS DEFINITELY SMALLER. HER "COMFORT" SHORTS THAT WERE NICE AND LOOSE AND BAGGY NOW FALL OFF IF SHE TRIES TO WEAR THEM, AND THE SNUG ONES ARE LOOSE. SHE ISN'T GOING TO BUY SMALLER ONES THOUGH, SINCE SHE FIGURES AT LEAST SOME OF THE WEIGHT IS COMING BACK SOONER OR LATER. IF SHE CAN KEEP HALF OF IT OFF, SHE'LL BE HAPPY.

I GOT MY SUN BATH THIS MORNING BEFORE MOM AND DAD WENT TO THE GROCERY STORE, AND THEN AFTER THEY GOT BACK THEY WENT FOR CHICKEN BOWL WHICH MOM SHARED WITH ME. NOT A BAD DAY SO FAR!!

  Hi Sweetpepper
That's terrific news about Lexi! I'm so happy she is healing so well.
Mom went back to Radio Shack yesterday afternoon, and after an hour there, got a new phone, got the data transferred from the old one, and was on her way.
It has been beautiful here for a few days, sunny, but cool, so mom is getting a lot of the yard work done. Yesterday her neighbor came over with the wheelbarrow, so she was able to toss a lot of the cuttings over our cliff in back. She got rid of the rose bush cuttings first, but a thorn made its way through her glove and got her. She also got rid of all the peony cuttings and some tall weeds. Today at the museum, her first tour group was double the size they booked. There were supposed to be 9 students with an adult, and it turned out to be 19 + 2 kids of faculty. They were a college biology group, and they were booked for PA natural history. It turned out they wanted earth history with an emphasis on Dinosaurs! Well, that's right up mom's alley, so she had a great time with them and picked up a few of the general public on her tour as well. The second one was a Dino tour for the general public which is always fun.
Now she's back here with us for the milonga. We thought she'd stop for a cake mix or something for Jeff, since he brought the wheelbarrow and helped mom load it 3 times last night. She decided to blow off baking until tomorrow, so we have her now!
We hope to see everybirdie at the milonga tonight! Hugs, Falco

  Hi Sweetpepper
Mom is hoping the clock changing will help alot too. Mom is having trouble going to sleep also.
We may not be on BC tomorrow evening. Today skin sis called and said when the grand took her bath last night the knob broke to pick the stopper up. Dad told her to take the screws out of the plate and see if there was anything broke she could see in there. She called back and said she couldn’t see anything so mom and dad went over. Dad had to take the back off which is in a cupboard so all skin sis towels was all over the floor. Mom picked stuff up and put them away while dad tried to fix it but dad says he doesn’t have the plumber tools to do it with so skin sis has to call a plumber now. “The only thing wrong with fids, is that they can’t live forever.“ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

MY MOM MAKES A REALLY GOOD MEATLOAF TOO, BUT DAD CAN'T EAT IT BECAUSE IT IS TOO MUCH PROTEIN. SHE WAS DISCUSSING IT WITH HER MASSAGE THERAPIST YESTERDAY, AND THEY FIGURED IF MOM USED PANKO INSTEAD OATMEAL AS A BINDER AND SAUTED SOME VEGGIES LIKE ZUCHINNI AND MUSHROOMS AND ADDED THEM WITH THE CELERY AND ONIONS SHE ALREADY USES THAT WOULD BRING DOWN THE PROTEIN LEVEL SO DAD COULD EAT IT. SO MOM IS GOING TO TRY THAT SOON.

MY DAY HAS BEEN FRUSTRATING UP TO NOW. I DIDN'T GET A SUNBATH, BECAUSE IT WASN'T WARM ENOUGH BEFORE MOM LEFT FOR THE GYM AT 9:30, BUT IT WAS TOO WARM BY THE TIME SHE GOT HOME FROM THE GYM AND THE POST OFFICE AT 12:30. AND THEN I HAD TO WAIT WHILE SHE TOOK HER SHOWER. UNFAIR! HOWEVER SHE IS DOING SO MUCH BETTER IN ZUMBA NOW, SHE NOT ONLY CAN FINISH THE WHOLE HOUR BUT SHE WASN'T FEELING TOO TIRED AT ALL. SO I GOT A MOM TIME WITH HER ALL PERKY. CAN'T KNOCK THAT.

BUT THEN WHEN I REMINDED HER IT WAS LUNCH TIME, WE SHARED ONE OF MY FAVORITES: LEMONGRASS CHICKEN. I LIKE IT BECAUSE IT HAS BOTH CORN AND LIMA BEANS IN IT....USUALLY. THERE WERE NO LIMAS IN THIS ONE! I GOT CHEATED. I DID EAT MOST OF THE CORN THOUGH.

WELL, THE COSTUME CONTEST ENDS TONIGHT, SO MAKE SURE YOU AND KACEY GO VOTE ONE MORE TIME. THERE A COUPLE OF RACES THAT ARE VERY CLOSE. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHO WINS.

  Hi Sweetpepper
Mom did the RVS room today, but there was only a bat in there. The raccoons were moved outside, where mom cleaned their cages and fed them. They are much easier to deal with outside since the staff decided the best way to handle them indoors was to scruff them to move them. They said it's more sanitary than using a towel. Mom doesn't feel comfortable scruffing large raccoons, so doing the RVS room the past couple of times has been trying. However, they are easy to deal with outdoors, because they don't have to be moved, mom can clean around them.
After leaving the center, mom went to Radio Shack to buy a new phone, as her present one isn't holding a charge for long. Long story short, Virgin Mobile wanted her pin, which she had no idea about, so she had to come home for a few hours. They locked her account, and she can't get into it. She gave them all the other info, and they changed her pin to something she'll remember, but wouldn't let her in to transfer data from the old phone to the new one. She will be making a second trip today to do that. The nice young man at Radio Shack told her to come back in a couple of hours.
Yesterday, mom got all the peony bushes cut back, and one of the roses pruned. There is more work to do on the roses, which might happen today. She is borrowing a wheelbarrow from a neighbor to haul the cut greens to the hillside. She will toss it all down the cliff and let it compost there. It might provide hide spaces for some critters, too.
I hope you are having a good day today, getting some sunshine and lots of love. Hugs, Falco
