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
well my mom won the pa power ball lottery. she will now have to decide how she is going to spend the $8.00.

yesterday our mom was gone all day because she took the g-son to the community township festival where they had lots of fun things for kids to do. g-son built a truck out of wooden blocks at one booth and then won a 5 foot tall inflatable alien at another booth. then mom tried to dunk our township commissioner in the dunking booth but couldn't do it. they had a petting zoo full of ravenous goats, sheep and pigs so mom went in to feed them and soon found out why no one else went in since all the animals jumped up on her vying for the food. then they left the festival and went to game stop where mom bought g-son a video game for his birthday. next out to eat and then back to the festival for fireworks. by the time mom got g-son home and and then came home it was really late so no blogging for us yesterday.

love Cori

  Day 21--Cheticamp River Kayaking part 2
Hello Everybirdie, Angel Girl with today's BOTM post. What fun it is to kayak down the rapids, and paddle through the quiet calm between high mountain peaks towering above the river far beneath. As the remainder of our group finish their trip through the first rapids, we paddle along, on calm still waters. Along the shoreline we see a Moose grazing in the cool of the tall tree-lined river. A lone coyote dashes out of sight as we draw near to his hiding spot. The Canadian Geese honk their annoyance of our intrusion upon their domain. It isn't long before making a large curve in the River we enter our second, longer rapids.
"Hey, this is greyt. Like a long roller coaster" Peppino squeals delightfully as he, Rio and Tango paddle fast entering the swift current, bobbing like an apple in a barrel of water
"Snowy, paddle on the right" Finnegan calls out, paddling frantically as their kayak is pulled into the rapids
" okay everybird watch out for boulders, and fallen tree branches, be careful, see ya at the bottom" Angel shouts as her kayak rushes head-long into the fast moving waters ahead.
"Chyna, you need to lean to the lean back so we stay upright." Cori warns her.

"Spot, you look sea-sick" BonBon giggles making fun for her frother, " you ain't gonna puke are you?"
"BonBon, behave" Poppa Sky tells her as he and BB flash by, barely avoiding a giant red boulder poking out of the river.
Pearl and Silver let their kayak go and keep their paddles on the ready to push away from the rocks, they glide smoothly to the bottom of the rapids where they wait for the others. Sugar and Jenny0Lynn with Lalo and Sweetie in a tandem kayak begin to paddle to the further left edge before pointing into the rushing rapids. Their kayak bobs roughly, then smooths out sailing through the water swiftly. the girls watching intently for snags under the water, and pushing off from the great boulders that point their angry heads towards the sky. Hulk bravely paddles into the rapids, Snowy and Strawberry paddling on the right to keep them steady as the current under he surface draws them along to the bottom.
Chipper, Cheyenne, Cookie and TiPaul enter the rapids last, their kayak begins to wobble and then straightens out. They paddle madly as a black form seems to leap out of the water just ahead. The water is too strong and their kayak bumps the rock, causing it to spin in a circle. Facing backwards their kayak is out of control as they drop down the rapids too fast. Chipper yells as water washes over them. Cookie and Cheyenne, paddle in reverse, slowing their descent. Together they work to turn their kayak, as more rocks rush towards them. The others watch in shock as their friends dip out of sight under the water. Holding their breath they wait. "There they are!" everyone cheers."
Breathing hard the foursome stops in the midst of the others.

  MY DARLING COWGIRL
WELL, IT WAS GOOD TO HEAR FROM YOUR MOM THAT KACEY SEEMS TO BE DOING BETTER. IT SOUNDS LIKE THEY ARE TAKING GOOD CARE OF HER AT THAT PET HOSPITAL. I AM GLAD YOUR MOM FOUND SUCH A GOOD PLACE TO TAKE HER IN SPITE OF IT BEING FARTHER AWAY. A VERY GOOD BACK UP IN TIMES OF CRISIS.

AND SO GLAD TO HEAR THAT G-PA HAS MANAGED TO EAT SOMETHING. MOM WOULD KILL FOR A SANDWICH, BUT IT IS THREE MORE WEEKS BEFORE SHE IS ALLOWED TO HAVE EITHER MEAT OR BREAD. SOON.....

I ONCE AGAIN REFUSED TO GO OUTSIDE TODAY. MOM KEPT TRYING BECAUSE EARLIER WHEN IT WAS TOO COOL TO GO OUT, I WAS ALL OVER MOM GETTING HEAD SKRITCHES AND GIVING BEAKY KISSES. HOWEVER WHEN SHE CAME BACK TO TAKE ME OUT, I WOULDN'T EVEN LET HER TOUCH ME, AND I KEPT NIPPING TO MAKE IT CLEAR I WOULDN'T COOPERATE. SHE TRIED FOR OVER AN HOUR AND FINALLY GAVE UP. DAD THINKS IT IS BECAUSE HE IS HOME, SINCE I DID THE SAME THING YESTERDAY. AND THEN I WOULDN'T EVEN COME WITH HER TO BLOG, SO SHE IS FEELING QUITE REJECTED. I AM CALLING HER, BUT I WON'T COME TO HER WHEN SHE COMES IN MY ROOM.

THE REDSKINS PLAY THE EAGLES TODAY, BUT IT IS NOT ON TV LOCALLY. WE RARELY GET EAST COAST GAMES OUT HERE, BUT THE NEW THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL IS GIANTS AT WASHINGTON, SO MOM IS ALL OVER THAT ONE. SHE IS HOPING THE FILL IN QUARTERBACK DOES AS WELL AS HE DID AGAINST THE PANTHERS.

  Hi Sweetpepper
We are anxiously awaiting news of Gpa and Kacey. HOpe all is well.
The double wedding yesterday was sure beautiful. We all wish the 2 happy couples long life and happiness. We were sorry to have to be silent during the reception, but mom had plans for the evening.
It was her first Night at the Races, a fundraiser for the pool where she goes in the summer. She always bought a horse and jockey for the event, but never went. She never won, either, although her sister has won at least $40 every year! Last night, she and her sister and brother in law went to the dinner and stayed for the races. Guess what? Mom's horse won in its race! Mom won $40, and since she bet on it, she won another $4. (Of course, she spent more than that during the course of the evening.) It sure was fun winning something, though!
Today it's kind of cloudy and it's supposed to be cooler, although when mom walked the dogs, it was sure humid and close. I hope you are having a great day today, getting lots of Sunday love, and having a pleasant weather day as well. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Kaji, TiPaul, and Sky for 10k!, Peppino, Divo & Falco, thanks for the prayers, I'm doing okay.

  Hi Sweetpepper
This morning mom and dad were up early again and after mom fed me and got twisted around her and dad left. Mom said they were going to Idlewild to see the Scottish games and find moms Maxwell tent. They were home pretty early and mom bought a shirt and they said watching the games was fun. Moms cousin that is a doctor was there so mom got to chat with her a bit also and the other cousin and their mom too.. Mom said they also sold kilts there but knew dad would never wear it and besides mom is the Scotish one in the family and not dad LOL. Mom didn’t think she would wear a kilt either. “Sometimes people ask mom how she can be friends with people she has never met and mom tells them then you have never been on bird channel I bet. That about sums it up to my friend” ~~ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Sweetpepper
Hope Kacey and Gpa are okay today. Tell them we hope they get well quickly.
Thanks for the well wishes. My side doesn't feel as hard to mom, so maybe that's a good sign. I am still giving her a hard time with the meds, though.
I feel good enough to be dancing at the wedding today. It's at 4 eastern, hope to see you there.
Mom had a training type tour this morning to help the people who work in the halls. She took them through cenozoic and mesozoic halls and gave them some background on the exhibits. It was fun, different from any tour she's ever done. Then she had a tour in mammal hall for the general public. It was one of those mini tours, and she finished in 35 minutes, YAY. That's supposed to be the time frame for those.
I hope you are getting lots of good weather today, we sure are! May your day be filled with sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Day 20- Cheticamp River Kayaking
Hello everybirdie, Angel Girl here with today's wet BOTM post. We finally arrived at the inland beginning of the Cheticamp River, where we found our Kayaks ready and waiting for our down river tour. The sun was just peaking over the mountains when we pushed off and began to slowly paddle out into the calm river. We had not gone very far when the current of the river began to move rapid and strong towards our first white-water adventure.
" Angel GIRL!!!" Raffikki called loudly, " you sure this is safe?"
"Well, I think so," she saw the look on several faces change, " YES, of course it is, just hang on tight to the sides of the kayak and paddle when you can. Watch for rocks, and paddle backwards to slow yourself down to navigate around them. SEE YOU ALL AT THE BOTTOM"
"WEEEEEE," Little Angel and Dixie's kayak begins it rapid ride down the rough, fast moving waters, spray flying up into their faces, " this is fun Dixie" Dixie wasn't so sure, but paddles and leaned slightly to go around the first rock in their pathway.
"Oh, my feathers!" Chyna complained as water soaked her from head to tail, " It's freezing cold too!"
"Paddle harder Cori" Boo Boo ordered as she navigated a turn in the river expertly
""BRRRRRR. It's icy. I'm soaked too" Falco called to Chyna as she and Willie splash around a huge boulder in the river.
"Havin' fun BB?" Sky asked laughing as water covered over their kayak, as they bobbed and spun down the decline" reaching quickly back to check on his pickles. " Ok, their safe!"
"YUCK!!!!!! " BonBon glares at Spot who grins back, " you did that on purpose." BonBon shakes her feathers dry of water and "OHHHHHHHHHH, algae" Spot giggles and splashes her again with the paddle. She sticks out her tongue. " where'd you learn that from"
"I'm tellin' Poppa Sky on you Spot" and Little Angel"
YEEHAWW" SamIAM yells as he and Miranda move swiftly through the choppy waters, mist and waves soaking them to the skin. " This is so much fun"
" Hold on tight" Jesse yells to Falco as they reach a very rough, rocky spot at the bottom of a short falls. Willie and Jesse paddle hard to keep up-right and finally they exit the white water into the calm river below. :Wasn't that greyt falco?" Jesse asks, but only gets a fluff of wet feathers in response. The boys laugh.
" Here we go Gus" Hulk says as they enter the rapids, water falling high around them
"Snowy, Strawberry are you two ok?" Angel calls back seeing them caught up on a small dead-fall( tree limb) in the water.
"Yep, we're free" the kayak moves off swiftly, into the deeper water.
Chipper, Cheyenne, Cookie and TiPaul ride the rushing current safely through the first turn, into the rough, drop over the falls, when suddenly their kayak turns sideways. They paddle hard trying to correct themselves, but it's too late, they tip to the left and then turn upside down. Just as swift they roll themselves upright to the applause of the others watching from below.

Hope that Gpa kidneys start working as they should and he gets home soon. Know you miss him very much too.
Usually Fridays are moms laid back days or a day if she needs to make an appointment she will pick that day. Its also my bath day for sure though I often get others thru the week as well so we got that over with too. The telephone man came cause there is noise in the lines again and this has been an ongoing problem for at least 5 years now. Of course while he was here I had to be in my condo. Then skin sis came up so back in the condo I was again cause she was showing mom something and I tried to be in the center of it all. Then moms cousin came so back in the condo I went again. Geesh I felt like it was moving day for me LOL. “Sometimes people ask mom how she can be friends with people she has never met and mom tells them then you have never been on bird channel I bet.

  MY RODEO WIFEBIRD
THE VOTING HAS STARTED AND ALTHOUGH I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW IT IS GOING, YOU ARE DOING JUST FINE. EVERY BIRDY HAS AT LEAST ONE VOTE, WHICH PLEASES ME A LOT.

SOUNDS LIKE G-PA IS HAVING A ROUGH TIME IN THE HOSPITAL. GOOD THING HE ONLY HAS TO PEE TO GET RELEASED. WHEN DAD HAD HIS CANCER SURGERY, THEY WOULDN'T RELEASE HIM UNTIL HE POOPED WHICH IS WHY HE WAS IN THERE FOR 23 DAYS! IF THEY HAD DONE THAT TO MOM SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN STUCK IN THERE LONGER TOO. PAIN MEDS BLOCK YOU UP. THAT BLEEDING G-PA DID DOESN'T SOUND GOOD. HE NEEDS TO BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT MOVING AROUND SLOWLY AND NOT PULLING THE INCISIONS. I KNOW YOU MISS HIM A LOT, BUT HE WILL BE HOME SOON.

MOM TOOK ME OUT FOR A SUNBATH AT 8:55 JUST IN CASE THE WEATHER GEEKS WERE LYING ABOUT THE COOL DOWN, BUT IT WAS ACTUALLY A LITTLE ON THE COOL SIDE AND WE ONLY STAYED FOR 20 MINUTES (MINIMUM TO DO GOOD PER THE VET). THEN MOM WENT TO THE GYM, AND BECKY DID HER "PRE-ZUMBA" WORK OUT WITH MOM. MOM WAS SO HAPPY TO BE BACK IN ZUMBA, BUT SHE HAD TO BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT WIGGLING AND TWISTING SO IT WAS A VERY CONSERVATIVE ZUMBA SHE WAS DOING. AND SHE ONLY LASTED 40 MINUTES INSTEAD OF THE HOUR, BUT THE MINUTE SHE FELT UNCOMFORTABLE IN HER TUMMY SHE STOPPED. SHE WAS GLAD HER ENERGY WAS GOOD THOUGH. STRENGTH-WISE SHE COULD HAVE DONE THE WHOLE HOUR.

ANYWAY WHEN SHE GOT HOME A BIT BEFORE NOON, IT WAS STILL NICE OUTSIDE. THE WEATHER GEEKS DIDN'T LIE, AND OUR HIGH TODAY IS LOW 80s. SO MOM TOOK ME OUTSIDE AGAIN, AND WE STAYED OVER HALF AN HOUR THIS TIME. SO THAT GAVE ME SOME GOOD RAYS FOR THE DAY. THEN WE CAME INSIDE AND SHARED RICE AND VEGGIES FOR LUNCH. I AM SITTING ON MOM'S KNEE RIGHT NOW DICTATING. IT IS VERY COMFY HERE.

  Hi Sweetpepper
I hope Gpa is much better today and can come home.
Today is my 3rd day on the antibiotics, so mom got her 3rd bite today (on the arm instead of the hand this time). Only 11 more doses to go, heehee. I don't really like getting toweled and told what to swallow, but I think mom means well. She is wondering if anybirdie out there has a suggestion for probiotics, as well. She hates to buy benebac, because I'm only one bird, and those tubes are expensive. Has anybirdie tried a dot of yogurt? We think that may work, but we aren't sure. Mom says it would be such a tiny amount, it shouldn't hurt, be we'd like to be sure.
Mom cleaned the coyote pens today, and both boys are getting big. They should be gone soon, we think. Yesterday the 22 outdoor raccoons were released, YAY, and today about 6 turtles said goodbye to us and went home to the wild. It's really clearing out there. Martha's foster owlets went into the flight cage this morning after the red tailed hawk was released from there, so it's starting to slow down considerably at the center.
I hope you are having a good day today, even though these days are getting shorter and the weather is cooling down. Get lots of extra cuddles to keep you warm, okay? Hugs, Falco

V4U today. So sorry to hear all that your grandpa is going through. Glad to hear that he's feeling better, and hope he can come home from the hospital soon. Thinking of your mom too, and hope that her ears are healing and feeling better. Keeping you all in our prayers. It's great that fall is finally here. We sure do like the cooler weather. Nothing new, just busy as usual. Our two clearance hibiscus flowered yesterday for the first time since we bought them. They were in pretty bad shape when we bought them so it was a treat to see them in flower with healthy looking leaves. Wishing you a nice weekend. From, Mayo

I hope you had a wonderful day! I'm doing just fine. It's dark and cloudy on one side of the hose and very sunny on the other side! It looks so cool!
We are still struggling with the computer so it limits our time during mom's workweek! I hope you don't think I haven't been thinking about you, because I have! It can take us an hour just to get 3 notes out and when mom has to work that night, we just run out of time! I don't think it will be too long before dad can get it fixed up.
I am watching the Mikado with the skin sister! It's got lots of music and for some reason it is making me giggle! I don't usually like operas but this one seems to be funny!
We hope grandpa is doing better! We keep you all in our prayers every night!
I do hope you enjoy your evening!!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Sweetpepper
That is probably a good thing they kept Gpa overnight at least in the hospital and hope he got out by now. Sitting in the hospital doing nothing sure does wear one out. Mom says that is worse then working any day.
I finally got to sit out for my sun bath today. It takes awhile for the day to warm up so it was later then usual that I went out today but by then the day was warm and the sun was out nice. The cows were way up on top of the hill and hadn’t worked their way around down by the bottom so I didn’t get to see much of them today. I guess they have a system they use and do it every day so guess it wasn’t time when I was out there for my sun bath to come down around the bottom. The baby cows are so cute and they sure do like running and playing around the older cows. They must be have ok cause I never see any of the big cows give them heck LOL “Sometimes people ask mom how she can be friends with people she has never met and mom tells them then you have never been on bird channel I bet. That about sums it up to my friend” ~~ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Day 18--Cape Breton Highlands National Park
Hello everybirdie, Angel Girl here with today's BOTM post. It was so eggciting to see the whales so up close and personal. The majestic giants were happy to show-off their talents, leaping, and blowing for us as we paddled among them heading for our new campsite at Cape Breton National Park. I wish to take a moment to thank everyone for their their daily votes and support in my quest for the throne. Sharing this adventure with all my friends is making it a special memory for me.
After paddling along the coast we finally arrived at Cheticamp, on the edge of Park. Here we were reunited with our horses, and were able to pick up a few needed supplies that my frothers Jesse and Amanda, being boys, forgot to include in our packs. The park is located in the northern end of the island and covers one-third of the Cabot Trail. It passes through the park featuring spectacular ocean and mountain views. The park is well known for its "steep cliffs and deep river canyons that carve into a forested plateau bordering the Atlantic Ocean" The park was the first National Park in the Atlantic provinces of Canada and covers an area of 948 km². It is one of 42 in Canada's system of national parks. It is known worldwide as the place where singer Taylor Mitchell died after being fatally attacked by coyotes, the only adult human fatality from coyotes in history.
At the western entrance of the park is the Acadian village of Chéticamp on the Gulf of Saint Lawrence . On the eastern side of the park are the beaches at Ingonish on the Atlantic Ocean. In between are mountains, valleys, forests, waterfalls, rocky coastlines and a tundra-like plateau known as the Cape Breton Highlands. Park wildlife includes moose, black bears, coyotes, and Bald Eagles. The park provides habitat for the uncommon Bicknell's Thrush and Gaspe' Shrew. The first nest records of Boreal Owls for Nova Scotia were found in the south west corner of this park.
" Lalo, come on, you have enough souvenirs" Jenny-Lynn says, wings on her hips as she keeps an eye on her fister in the gift shop in Cheticamp.
"What's this Acadian thing?" Gus asks Hulk, "reading a sign mounted in town square
"Acadians are of mixed decent, French and other races. They came here from Louisiana"
"So we can get some Cajun cookin here? Let's go get something to eat!" Gus replies happily
"Wait for us" Susan and Snowy yell as they weave through the crowd of horses and riders." can't pass on a greyt meal"
Angel Girl continues to check their supplies list preparing to head to their next camp site.."Oh we need more eggs and oatmeal." She gives the list to Sky who heads off to gather all they need from the store near by.
"This place is beautiful" SamIam comments, looking out over the ocean, :has a historic appeal to it."
" I have everything we need. We better ride out before it gets too dark: Sky tells Angel Girl
"Ok, let's mount up birdies, time to head into the mountains."

SO GLAD TO HEAR THE SURGERY ON G-PA WENT SMOOTHLY. ONE OF THE TIPS THEY GAVE MOM AFTER HER SURGERY WAS TO REMAIN UPRIGHT FOR AT LEAST ONE HOUR AFTER EATING EVEN IF IT WAS JUST CHICKEN STOCK. IT HELPS WITH THE DIGESTION, AND YOUR G-PA STILL HAS ISSUES WITH THAT EVEN THOUGH THIS WAS A DIFFERENT SURGERY. IT MIGHT HELP HIM TOO.

IT'S FUNNY THAT YOU HAD TO HAVE A WALKABOUT SO YOU WOULD UNDERSTAND WHY G-PA WASN'T SAYING GOOD NIGHT TO YOU. I GET A WALKABOUT TO PROVE THAT DADDY ISN'T HOME, AND IT MAKES ME HAPPY!

I GOT OUT FOR MY SUNBATH ABOUT 9:45 TODAY AND IT WAS THE PERFECT TEMP. SO YES, WE DID GET OUR COOLDOWN. HOWEVER IT IS UPPER 80s (87) INSTEAD OF LOWER 80s AND THE SAME TOMORROW. STILL A BIG IMPROVEMENT.

THE VOTING FOR RODEO QUEEN BEGINS TODAY, AND ALREADY THERE IS A LOT OF ACTIVITY. I THINK IT WILL BE A GREYT CONTEST. OF COURSE, I AM HOPING YOU WILL BE CROWNED QUEEN, BUT I ONLY GET ONE VOTE JUST LIKE EVERYBIRDY ELSE. I WILL VOTE FOR YOU EVERY DAY, MY LOVE.

  Morning SP, sending prayers for g-pa, from Jenny
We are having great Fall like weather, and we will have it for at least the next 6 days, if the weather guessers are correct for a change! We were reminded by some friends to thank God for Queen Chuey and our dear Ms Falco, for having a good health report, two are well with one to go! As I see it, the problem with having so many BC friends is that we are subjected to their pain and suffering when something is wrong with their flock or family, especially if you have a loving caring heart like our daddy and all of us! It is the love of our dear friends that keep us in the race, and as daddy says, we wouldn't have missed it for the world! Happy throw back Thursday to you all and give my love to all in your precious home, see ya tomorrow for sure...

Forever love from Jenny & my family

  Hi Sweetpepper
We voted for you today, don't forget to go to the milonga page and vote.
The Verizon mess is sort of straightened out, but mom is still not happy. There's a popup about Java script every time she signs on, and it's annoying because it won't go away. The first guy she talked to told her over 700,000 accounts had been disabled, due to a breach in security, so hers was one of them. The second guy told her that her computer has a virus, in spite of the fact that we have Kaspersky installed, which is one of the best antivirus thingies out there. Since she had no problems with the rest of the computer, BC, AOL, she figured the first guy was right and the second guy not so much.
In case you missed the buzz yesterday, the vet found nothing broken, but I do have a huge wound on my side, possibly one I picked open when my leg was hurting. Mom can't see anyplace in my cage where I could have injured myself that badly. It's about 2 cm of open wound, with the skin that far apart. She said it would make no sense to try to stitch it, so just to apply a topical ointment to the spot. She was pleased that my leg is nearly healed, too. That wound was all around my leg, and is healed to about a 2 to 5 mm area of scabbing. Mom is putting the ointment on that, too. I am also taking oral antibiotics for 2 weeks, and have a follow up appointment next week.
Mom has an event to attend as a GUEST tonight at the center, how about that? Last year she was invited as a guest, but worked the event instead. This year, they told her to just come and enjoy.
It's another beautiful day in the neighborhood here today, lots of sun and warming as the day goes on. I hope you are having a good day and getting love and sunshine. Hugs, Falco

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
YEAH, MOM COULD NOT WIN EVEN IF SHE KEEPS TRYING. THEY DON'T LIKE HER. WHICH IS RIDICULOUS. YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIKE ANYONE, YOU HAVE TO WORK WITH THEM. BEING CIVIL AND COURTEOUS TO EACH OTHER IS ALL THAT IS NEEDED. BUT WHATEVER MOM DOES IS NOT ENOUGH. IN A WAY MOM IS HAPPY THEY WILL HAVE SOMEONE ELSE TO ABUSE--THE NEW GAL. AND YOU KNOW WHAT? MOM DOESN'T CARE MUCH. SHE WILL CONTINUE TO GO IN TO WORK AND DO HER BEST. BUT BEYOND THAT...WELL,

MOM SAW ALL THESE NEAT MONARCH BUTTERFLIES TODAY! HAVEN'T SEEN THAT MANY AT ONE TIME IN YEARS. AND THE DRAGONFLIES! IT WAS SO NEAT TO SEE THEM, MOM SAYS.

Thanks for liking my new picture mom put up. The bird cutout is made of wood that are in my gallery. Saying prayers for gpa and hoping all went well too.
Today mom met up with her sister again since she knows it wont be long and she will be leaving plus the snow will be flying too. They had lunch together which stretched into almost dinner cause they sit and talk so much so mom is a bit late tonight and on a roll. Catching up again tomorrow night hopefully and chat more then. “Sometimes people ask mom how she can be friends with people she has never met and mom tells them then you have never been on bird channel I bet.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

TODAY WAS A FUN DAY BECAUSE WE GOT TO MEET MS FALCO BEAK TO BEAK AFTER HER VET APPOINTMENT. SHE SURE IS ONE PRETTY GIRL. AFTER FALCO AND HER MOM LEFT MOM WAS DEBATING WETHER SHE SHOULD TAKE DOWN THE HUMINGBIRD FEEDERS SINCE WE HAVENT SEEN ANY HUMMERS FOR ABOUT 2 WEEKS. WELL ABOUT 4 MINUTES AFTER FALCO LEFT A LITTLE HUMMINGBIRD SHOWED UP AT ONE OF THE FEEDERS. THE NECTAR WAS PRETTY OLD SO MOM WAS SCRAMBLING LIKE CRAZY TO CLEAN THE FEEDER AND REFILL IT SO THE LITTLE HUMMER WOULD GET A FRESH MEAL. THE MALE HUMMERS ALL WENT SOUTH A LONG TIME AGO BECAUSE THEY ONLY COME NORTH FOR ONE REASON AND AFTER THEY HAVE DONE THEIR DEED AND EATEN THEIR FILL OF BUGS AND NECTAR THEY HAVE NO MORE REASON TO STAY. THE ONLY ONES LEFT AT THIS POINT ARE YOUNG ONES AND SOME STRAGGLER FEMALES FROM THE NORTH. MOM WILL MAKE ONE MORE BATCH OF NECTAR IN CASE ANY MORE SHOW UP IN THE ENSUING WEEKS. IN THE PAST 1 OR 2 HUMMERS HAVE SHOWN UP AT THE END OF OCTOBER AND WE WANT THEM STRONG FOR THEIR LONG FLIGHT SOUTH.

  Day 17--A Whale of a Good Time
Good morning everyone, Happy Humpday. Today we will finish our trip along the coast. Arrangements were made for our horses and supplies to be delivered to our newest camp site in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. It's sure been an awesome sight to see all the wild seabirds including Arctic Puffins and several Gull and Tern species. The Grey Seals were a playful surprise, however as many of us know their plight is sad as animal rights groups world-wide fight to ban the annual seal hunt. We had just set off when we were joined by a pod of playful, entertaining whales.
Spot lands eggspertly in his kayak, and waves at a whale! BonBon and Snowflake shriek and laugh as one of the whales 'blows' right next to them and they get showered!"Oh, no, we're covered in whale snot!" yells BonBon! Spot and the band of bros. laugh at them as they try to wipe off the stuff!
"That'll teach you to get too close to the whales! " says Spot.
Just then a whale comes up under Spot's kayak and dumps them into the water! The mama Whale says," it's not nice to laugh at the pretty girl birds! "
"Yes ma'am, we're sorry!" says Spot and the boys reply! He whispers to Panther," we better get out of here!"
"What an adventure! "says Panther." We could have been eaten by whales!"
Angel Girl laughs and says, "silly boys, whales don't eat birds!"
"Today we visit Cheticamp, Cape Breton, a famous Nova Scotia destination, known for it's whale sightings. The most frequent sightings are big Fin whales, dolphins, Minke whales, Humpback whales and Pilot whales. Seals and Puffins are observed on nearly every tour.
"hey look, spotted whales?" Puffin calls out, " look at the white spots"
"They are actually North Atlantic right whales which come here rarely with their calves for the summer from Florida and Georgia waters. Those white patches seen on the right whale's head are raised tissue that is actually dark in color called callosities. Whale lice or cyamids covering the callosities are what makes them appear white. " Sky explains
Little Peep and Rio stand tall to get abetter glimpse of the rare whales. Kiddo and Sweetpepper take photos of the whales as they surface close by. Pilot whales splash happily at the kayaking birdies, as they call in whale-enise to one another. " They're so cute" Kacey adds as she sketches a whale jumping out of the water on her art pad.
" These are so gentle yet so large" Mr Finnegan comments to Susan as they sit watching from their kayak.
" Until recently Whales were feared as being dangerous and aggressive, yet look, how gently they swim and play close to us." BB states as she snuggles with Sky to watch they giants of the ocean.
"Willie, did you get a good shot of that baby and her Momma?" Falco asks from across the group of kayaks bobbing softly in the calm waters.
"YEP! Mom's gonna love these pictures."
Reluctantly the group begins to paddle towards their next stop-over! Spot waves good-bye!

  MY BEAUTIFUL COWGIRL
I SUSPECT THERE WILL BE NO BLOGGING FROM YOU TODAY, WHAT WITH G-PA'S HERNIA SURGERY. HOWEVER I AM HOPING YOUR MOM HAS A CHANCE THIS EVENING TO EMAIL MY MOM AND TELL HER HOW EVERYTHING WENT. MOM IS SO SYMPATHETIC AFTER HER RECENT STAY AT THE HOSPITAL. IT WAS NOT FUN!

I GOT OUT FOR MY SUNBATH AT 9:25 THIS MORNING, ALTHOUGH MOM STARTED TRYING AT 9. I JUST DIDN'T WANT TO COOPERATE AT FIRST, BUT THEN MOM TOLD ME IF I DIDN'T GO SOON IT WOULD BE TOO HOT AND SHE WASN'T KIDDING. WE ONLY STAYED FOR 30 MINUTES, AND MOM HAD TO GO GET THE SPRITZER BOTTLE TO SPRAY ME DOWN HALFWAY THRU BECAUSE I STARTED PANTING. SHE REALLY SOAKED ME, WHICH FELT VERY NICE. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I WAS TOTALLY DRY BY THE TIME WE WENT INSIDE 15 MINUTES LATER!!

WE ARE SUPPOSED TO GET A COOL DOWN TOMORROW (TODAY IS HITTING 98, BUT WITH HUMIDITY SO IT FEELS JUST AS HOT). THEY ARE CALLING FOR LOW TO MID 80s TOMORROW, AND I SURE DO HOPE THEY HAVE IT RIGHT THIS TIME. WE WERE SUPPOSED TO COOL OFF ON MONDAY, BUT THAT SURE DIDN'T HAPPEN.

TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO ENTER FOR RODEO QUEEN, AND THE VOTING STARTS TOMORROW. I THINK WE WILL HAVE 10 ENTRIES FOR QUEEN, SO THAT IS A GOOD CONTEST. I AM SURE YOU WILL DO WELL. YOU ARE CERTAINLY THE QUEEN OF MY DREAMS!

That was way back in July, when mom rushed me to the vet. They apparently did not do enough.
Today when mom tried to sign on to her Verizon account, she couldn't do it. It kept cycling onto the intro page and wouldn't let her proceed. She tried changing her password, too, but that didn't work either. Anyway, she called Verizon and is waiting for a call back. But it took valuable time, since today is my vet appointment.
Yesterday mom took me to the center and the staff up there found much more wrong with my leg! They advised mom to call the vet and get me there, so that's what we're doing today. The appointment is at 1:30 and mom is just feeling horrid about not knowing it was so bad.
I haven't been spending time with her like I used to, but mom thought I just was upset about my wing clip. Instead, now she thinks I've been in pain for over 2 months, and she is kicking herself for not doing something sooner.
We are hoping they can do something for my leg, though.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of sunshine and love. Hugs, Falco

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

I THINK THAT PICTURE IS JUST THE BEST.

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

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

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

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

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

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

IT WAS SO EARLY THE YARD WAS ALL SHADE WHEN WE GOT OUT THERE, AND MOM SET MY CARRIER ON THE SIDEWALK! IT WAS OK THOUGH, BECAUSE NOBODY CAME BY AND AFTER 10 MINUTES SHE WAS ABLE TO MOVE ME ON TO THE GRASS.
