Hi Everyone, I have some great news to share with you all. I was entered into my very first ever bird show by my birdsitter/bree- der. I was in the novice division for senegals. In two days I came away with a total of 6 ribbons. 4 first place ribbons, one 4th place and one 5th place ribbon. Could have won more but since my wings are clipped it held me back. When mom takes pics of me with my ribbons she is going to place them here on my page for all to see. She is so proud of me. Both my senegal parents were top show winning birds. Brother Maxi also won honorable mention for looking so good for his age of 15 3/4yrs.. ............. Met her at a bird fair. She took an instant liking to me and chose me as her new owner. I wasn't going to buy a bird but when she chose me, I just had to take her home. It was instant love!... ...HATCHDATE JAN 26, 2003..

  Hi SweetPepper
Oh I knew you would love your French door fridge. The last two we had were side by side. My mom likes this much better. You can put magnets on the side of a stainless but you are right, nothing on the front.
Hope you had a nice Labor Day. We didn't have a BBQ today. Instead, northern Michigan had a nasty t-storm and a tornado. Three areas were hit but, no one was hurt just houses, cars, trees. The tornado was 20 miles south of us. We lost several trees on our property. Our power was out because a tree fell on the wires and took them down on the road. This was next door to us. My parronts went to town and came home with chicken. We ate our dinner in the dark with a flash light. I don't like eating in the dark! We are finally with power again ...YAY!
Hugs

See you in the am for spa time.

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
OH, YEAH, BC SUCKS TONIGHT. MOM SENT OUT AN EMAIL ABOUT HER TWEET TO THE BC ON TWITTER. ESPECIALLY HOW TECH SUPPORT NEVER ANSWERS THE EMAILS. MOM HAS ALMOST 800 FOLLOWERS, SO THEY WILL SEE IT, AND MAYBE NOW THEY WILL TAKE CARE OF THE ISSUES AND FIX WHATEVER IS GOING WRONG WITH THE SITE.

MOM AND I SPENT A LOT OF THE DAY TOGETHER. SHE HAD TO PICK UP SOME GROCERIES SHE COULD NOT GET AT WALLY WORLD, SO SHE RAN OUT FOR THEM AND CAME BACK HOME. SHE WAS GLAD THAT THE RAIN WENT AWAY, TOO, SO SHE DIDN'T GET WET. THEN WE TOOK A NAP. I GOT TO TUNNEL UNDER HER SHIRT A COUPLE TIMES CUZ SHE WAS TRYING TO SLEEP AND I WAS AWAKE. HEHE. THAT WAS FUN. WE DUSTED, AND THEN SHE IRONED HER CLOTHES AND MADE HER TURKEY BURGERS AND ONIONS (OH YEAH, THOSE WERE SOOO GOOD!) SHE EATS THOSE FOR BREAKFAST--GOOD PROTEIN SO SHE IS NOT HUNGRY UNTIL LUNCH TIME.

HOPE YOU HAD A GOOD DAY, TOO!

  Hi Sweetpepper
Last night mom went to Lena's art show and sale, and she bought some paintings and some prints for Christmas gifts.
It rained pretty much all day until late afternoon yesterday, so there was no pool time at all. Today was a different story, though! After doing the main aviary and the small flight aviary this morning, mom got to go to the pool for the last time this summer. It was a gorgeous afternoon, even if it was a bit cloudy here and there.
As for the squirrels, the little girl grey has started eating mash, and today she preferred to eat rather than take formula from the syringe. This morning she drank about half of the formula, then turned her head, so mom squirted the rest into her mash, which she promptly ate. Mom checked at noon, and refilled it, and again at 4, it was empty, so mom refilled it again. She will still get hand fed a few more nights, but she should be back at the center by the end of the week. The little boy fox squirrel opened his eyes today! That means mom can quit stimulating him to go to the bathroom, and in a few days, she can introduce mash to him as well. When she reported their weights this morning, the staff was pleased with their development.
I hope you are having a good Labor day, getting the best picnic of the year in, or whatever else you are doing, and getting lots of sunshine and love. Hugs, Falco

WELL, MY MOM SAYS THE ONLY PLACE TO BUY A REFRIGERATOR OR ANY MAJOR HOUSEHOLD APPLIANCE IS SEARS. THEY HAVE THE BEST QUALITY AND ALWAYS HAVE SOMETHING ON SALE FOR A GOOD DEAL. THE ONE YOUR MOM PICKED SOUNDS REALLY NICE. I THINK MY MOM WOULD NOT MANAGE WITHOUT HER ICE MAKER IN THE DOOR.

I GOT OUTSIDE FOR MY SUNBATH THIS MORNING, BUT MOM TRICKED ME TO DO IT. I WAS SITTING QUIETLY ON HER KNEE WHEN SHE SIMPLY PICKED ME UP, AND THEN SHE POPPED ME INTO THAT DARNED LITTLE CARRIER. I WAS GOOD OUTSIDE THOUGH, EVEN WHEN A BIG BLACK DOG WALKED BY AND SNIFFED AT ME. I KNEW MOM WOULDN'T LET HIM GET ME.

SHAKY START ON THE BEHAVIOR FOR BLOGGING TODAY, AND I DECIDED TO SHRED MY MOM'S DOC APPT PAD, SO SHE PUT ME BACK IN MY ROOM. THEN I CRIED SO PITIFULLY, SHE CAME AND GOT ME. I LEARNED MY LESSON AND I AM NOW SITTING QUIETLY ON HER LEG WHILE SHE TYPES FOR ME.

MOM WENT BACK TO THE GYM FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS MORNING, AND BECKY HER TRAINER WAS ALL READY FOR HER. SHE HAD MOM DO SHOULDER EXERCISES WITH FIVE POUND WEIGHTS, BUT SHE DID THEM ALL SITTING IN THAT CHAIR WITH THE BACK SO SHE WOULDN'T ENGAGE HER AB MUSCLES AT ALL. IT WENT REALLY WELL, AND IT ADDRESSED MOM'S CONCERNS ABOUT LOSING ALL THE MUSCLES SHE HAS BEEN WORKING SO HARD ON.

  Day 1--Welcome to Cape Breton Island part 1
Hello everybirdie, my name is Angel Girl. I am a member of the SKY Flock, and this month's BOTM candidate. I would like to take this first day to introduce myself a little bit, and outline our month long trip to beautiful Cape Breton Island, Nova, Scotia, Canada.
I arrived at the Sky flock several years ago when my new owner became too afraid of me to keep me. I had lived with my first owner for the first five years of my life. I was born to his father's flock in the Barrie, Ontario area. I was a much loved, and pampered pet, who enjoyed the best of food, and attention. I even have a custom made large cage. When the relationship between my daddy and mommy fell apart I was posted for sale on the internet and ended up in Peterborough, Ontario,.
Why my new owner ever got me will forever be a mystery, but was, in part motivated by my Momma Deb telling her that she had wanted an African Grey for many years and was considering a clutch of Cameroons. My new owner had the very best of intentions, but lacked Parrot handling skills and experience. She was afraid of me, and when I made an escape from my cage, was unable to get me home again, and resorted to using a broom to "herd" me along. I came to hate the broom, as I was daily allowed out, but broomed back to my cage. Eventually I began to attack the broom, and the one holding it aggressively, biting and screaming my displeasure. After several months of war, my owner contacted my Momma Deb and asked her if she would take me in. My Momma Deb was very happy to go get me. She found me cowering in the back of the cage, locked in the back bedroom. I was quickly "caught up" with a towel and placed into a carrier. My cage and I were loaded up, and I was off to my new forever home.
It took a lot of work to get to the place were I trusted Momma Deb. She endured many hard bites, and one attack on that broom she was using to clean the floor. Since Momma Deb didn't give-up, I decided that I would trust her, and have since become Momma's special Girl. I have an extensive vocabulary of words, and sound effects, and I love singing my many songs. Enough about me.
This month we will be exploring Cape Breton Island, along the Cabot Trail by horse-back. IF any-birdie does not have a horse from CHUEY's BOTM Cattle Drive please let me know and we will round up one for you. We will be camping outdoors, enjoying many fun adventures, taking part in some Celtic festivals and games, and maybe even end up sparkled as my Fister Little Angel and Dixie Adler joy us for the trip. Pack up your camping gear, and ready to ride.
See everyone tomorrow as we take flight to Cape Breton. (SKY has transported our horses there by trailer).
Hugs and love
ANGEL GIRL 224627

  Message from QUEEN CHUEY
Howdy everybirdy, Queen Chuey here. I want to thank you all once more for riding the Trail with me. I had lots of fun and adventure this past month. I have a few plans for this upcoming month of September in the Castle. Seeing how well you all have mastered the art of horse riding,roping and the like, I think it only right to hold a RODEO at the Castle. The day and time will be posted both on the Calendar page and my own, also on my cousin ANGEL GIRLS PAGE.


Angel Girl is our September BOTM candidate and I know that you all will enjoy the month with her on Cape Breton Island. This adventuresome month will be narrated in true SKY FLOCK style and humor. It promises to be a fun, informative adventure. I must warn you though,that LITTLE ANGEL and her Hus-bird DIXIE will be joining you , so be prepared for some "SPARKLY" times head. ANGEL GIRL'S page #--224627.
Remember to give those horses some extra oats and molasses, they sure deserve it. Now, if I can only get these cowbird boots off, I'm gonna relax by the pool for a spell. Then enjoy some fine vittles in the Banquet Hall.
Hugs and kisses
Queen Trail Boss Chuey

  Hi SweetPepper
It's Alex.
Mom decided to boil the smoked turkey bones yesterday. Wow, did the kitchen ever smell good! She's going to freeze the stock so she can make turkey soup when and if the cold weather ever hits us. She also made more Pico Di Gillo. It was such a hit the last time that she tried it again. And, the longer it sits, the better it gets.
Dad took advantage if mom working in the kitchen and ran the Rug Doctor over the bedroom carpet with just hot water. He thinks he got all the shampoo out of the carpet so it won't be like walking on dried straw.
Today is Labor Day. But dad says there is no way he's going into labor.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 89 and a low of 64.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

  Hi SweetPepper
I had BC trouble too. It started at 9pm (8 your time) and I left at 10 and came back 10:45 ... still bad. But, it sure was a fun one.
We have a French door fridge too. Ours is stainless steele ... and a pain to keep clean says mom!!!! I know you will love it. The only draw back is the ice maker is in the fridge part so the water comes out slower than the side by sides with it in the freezer side. but, we still love it.
It was a lazy, cool and cloudy day (71 degrees) with some rain. I took advantage and had a very long nap. Then, I was ready to go crazy and drive mom nuts ... hehehehe. That was my plan and it worked!
dad has to work on Monday so maybe a BBQ later if it doesn't rain.
Hugs

YOU DID SUCH A FINE JOB OF SENDING OFF EACH HEAT AND THE FINAL FOUR FOR LAST NIGHT'S PIG RACES, MY LOVE. AND OF COURSE, YOU HAD THE BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE FOR THE RACES. PERKS OF BEING THE WIFEBIRD OF THE MC. THEY SURE WERE FUN, AND I WAS SO PLEASED TO SEE COOKIE AND PETUNIA WIN. I DO FIND MYSELF WISHING EVERYBIRDY COULD TAKE HOME A RIBBON THOUGH.

I HAVE REFUSED TO GET IN TO THAT TINY CARRIER FOR TWO DAYS IN A ROW NOW. IT IS JUST TOO SMALL. MOM WILL BE ALLOWED TO LIFT THE LARGER CARRIER ON WEDNESDAY, SO IT JUST MIGHT NOT BE UNTIL THEN THAT I GET OUTSIDE. ALTHOUGH MOM WILL KEEP TRYING JUST IN CASE.

HOWEVER I HAVE BEEN A VERY GOOD BOY ABOUT SITTING ON MOM'S KNEE OR SHOULDER WHILE SHE BLOGS FOR ME. EVER SINCE THE SURGERY. NOT SURE IF THAT MEANS SOMETHING OR NOT. OF COURSE, RIFHT NOW I AM CLIMBING ON HER DESK, SO SHE WILL PUT ME BACK ON HER KNEE IN A MINUTE. NO ATTEMPTS TO FLY TO THE ANTIQUE DESK THOUGH!

  Day 31--The final Trail to Wyoming
Well, you can bet we sure had a merry time watchin' Bart, and his rustlers tryin' to get that mess off their feathers and cowboy outfits. The harder they tried, the worse mess they got themselves into. Jenny-Lynn just stood there, wings on her hips, laughin' so hard I wondered she didn't fall over. We came outta the brush and from behind them rocks to enjoy the show. Bart was cawin' and cussin' like a crow, but the more he tried, the worse it got. His wings got to stickin to his cowboy hat, then he fell again onto them ants and he was rollin like a dog with fleas.
"Ain't ya gonna help me Jenny-Lynn?" Bart pleaded as he tried in vain to get his wings off his head.
"Nah, I'm kinda enjoyin the show myself." JL sat down on a boulder and watched. The others gave up their fightin' and tryin and just stood their, sticky glop droppin' off in puddles onto their boots.
"Bart, we give up! You can try to take them cows ya gotta mind to, but we quit!" Twitch turned and looked at us, "you can shoot us if ya wanta, but we don't want your herd no more."
"You get, don't let us be seein' any sign of ya ever agin, or we'll be hangin from a rope" I finish and looked at them, grinning widely. "Now vamoose" It took but a few seconds before they began to wobble, and stumble off down the Trail, I had no doubt we'd seen the last of them. "Now Bart, what ya gotta say for yourself. You know the law of the West is hangin' but I don't have no heart for the likes of that. Instead you'll work for Lizzie, do all the dish washin, and ever she has a problem with ya, she's free to toast ya." Bart looked sadly at the mess he was in, and silently nodded his agreement. After much scrubbin in the river he came up as clean as a scoundrel like him could be. He worked quietly and nervously for Lizzie all the way to Wyoming where we cut him loose hopin' he'd learned his lesson. I'm a proud Trail Boss at how well you all learned to rope and ride, herd, and protect the herd of Long-horned Cattle all the way from Texas to Wyoming. You shot, and fought like the very best of them seasoned cow-punchers, ya ought be real proud of yourselves.
At this time I wish to thank each and everyone of you for your awesome support, both by voting daily and your encouraging words. I truly hope you all enjoyed your month long adventure on the Western Trail, and perhaps came away with a little bit of historical information too.
A very special thank you goes out to Momma Deb of the SKY FLOCK for all her photo editing, and assistance, without which I would never have been able to write such an eggciting, and fun adventure. Momma Deb is a real story-teller, and I appreciate her hard work, input and help.
Now, with my last blog posted I am heading back home for a short visit with my own Momma. I know she missed me while we rode the Trail, forged the River and fought the bad-birds. I have missed my hus-bird Mikey D too.
with love and hugs

  Hi SweetPepper
It's Alex.
Mom's job doesn't require a uniform so she only gets three gray polo shirts. Each has her name on one side and "La Habra Police Volunteer" on the other side. The department gave her one shirt but she wanted two more so dad bought them for her.
We spent the entire Saturday in lockdown. YUCK! Mom and dad went to mom's brother's house for BBQ turkey and Tri-tip. They brought home lots of leftover turkey, BBQ beans and corn on the cob. We're going to get a taste of it today. It was about ten degrees cooler in Huntington Beach so everybody sat outside and enjoyed the afternoon and evening. We were already asleep when mom and dad got home but dad came into our room and said goodnight to all of us.
Today is going to be partly cloudy, with a high of 91 and a low of 66. Mom is going to pick all the meat off the turkey bones and boil the bones for soup stock. The house is going to smell real good today.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

  Hi Sweetpepper
BC was a little slow last night, but it seems everyone hung in there!
Once again, the county fair milonga was fantastic! We all had a great time. My booth made a ton of cash, we gave out lots of prizes, too. Cash goes to birdie rescues, as we all know, and the leftover prizes will go there too.
Willie and Piglet had a lot of fun in the races, and he assured her she is a winner and a wonderful piggie. Peppino had peach pie all over himself and had fun in the pie contest, too. Congrats to Pearl for winning that one!
A huge thank you to Kiddo, Ranebeau, Taz, and SamIAm for making the night one to be remembered forever! The pictures helped to make the night complete.
Hope you are having better weather than we are today. It's cool and raining really hard here. We're hoping tomorrow brings some sunshine for the last day at the pool. They changed their late night swim and annual bonfire to last night, because of the predicted weather today, it was a fine idea. Anyway, I hope it's sunny and warm and a lovely day full of cuddles where you are! Hugs, Falco

OH I AM SO GLAD THAT THE BC IS UP FOR ME TONIGHT. IT WAS VERY FRUSTRATING TO KEEP TRYING TO LOGIN AND NOT BEING ABLE TO. THE PAGE WAS THERE (IT IS KEPT IN CACHE) BUT WHEN I CLICKED ON THE LINK, IT WOULD JUST GO TO THE PAGE NOT FOUND. UGH.

LOVE YOUR FACE PAINTING! WOW, REALLY AWESOME! AND YEAH, NOW THAT YOU MENTION IT, I DO LOOK LIKE A HAWK! HAWKS ARE PRETTY DARN NEAT. AS LONG AS I AM INSIDE THE HOUSE THAT IS.

WENT TO THE MARKET TODAY AND GOT TO SEE PAULA, AND HAVE ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE JUST SMILE OR COME OVER TO MOM TO LET HER KNOW THEY THOUGHT I WAS PRETTY CUTE.

WE MADE IT IN BETWEEN THE DOWNPOURS TODAY--IT RAINED LIKE MAD WHEN MOM WAS OUT AT WALLY WORLD. AND THEN IT CLEARED UP SO WE GOT TO GO TO THE MARKET. AND WHEN WE WERE COMING HOME, IT STARTED UP, BUT DID NOT START RAINING REALLY HARD UNTIL ABOUT 5 PM.

THE COUNTRY FAIR WAS AWESOME, WASN'T IT? I LOVED BEING ABLE TO DO THE PIE EATING CONTEST, AND GOT THIRD PLACE! THAT WAS SUPER!

HAVE A GREAT REST OF THE NIGHT!!

  Hi SweetPepper
Glad to hear all is well, you know I always worry. Oh no ... your fridge is broken. So now, you have the fun of getting another ... what a pain in the tail feathers!!! It really throws everything off ... for cooking and storing etc.
Hope the BC is good tonight. So far it's slow. We just had another storm start too :(
It's Saturday and we have some sun! In between the rain, our temps have been between 75 and 78 with humidity. That's right, you heard 78!!!! Ahhhh, it was nice to bask in the sun for a while before the next rain came. The only downside of the weekend is the bike people are back! Yes, it's the DALMAC weekend. They start in Lansing and end up on the Mackinac Bridge (3rd longest suspension bridge of 5 miles) walk on Sunday. There are three routes with 1500 bicycles on each route. Our scenic road is one of them, lucky us. Just try to get down our curvy wooded road with them riding 2,3,and sometimes 4 across! They will all be gone on Monday and back to normal around here. Meanwhile I'm enjoying what sun and warm temps we have. Then tonight is the fun Milonga Fair. See you there.

  Day 30--As the smoke settles
What a gun-fight it was. Bullets sailin' arrows whizzin' past ya, and of course our herd stampeeding like mad-dogs towards the River. TiPaul races Lightning past the lead and cuts sharp hopin' to turn the varmits some, Pookie let's out a YIP, and dashes round the herd to the south, turnin' the lead steers back towards our camp. Mind ya it was a better idea then havin' them chargin' long-horns divin' into the water have crazy-like. Dixie cut into the dust and thunderin' hooves, and roped a cow pullin' the rope taunt he backed her up and a number of steers took her lead and swung wide to the north, and retraced their poundin' hoof prints.. Strawberry and Sugar where slappin' their hats on the horses flanks to pick up even more speed, as the herd continued to run wild. " YEEEEHAWWW! Chyna's voice could be heard over the herd, They're turnin' back"
Well on any other day, them cows changin' their ornery minds mighta been a good idea, but right now it wasn't. A bullet whipped by, knockin' my hat clear off my head. "WOW, that was close"
"Sorry Boss," Baxter yelled, " I missed my target"
"I wanta hope so, especially if'n I'm that target" I couldn't help but laugh at all the fun we was havin'. Then I heard them cows bearing down towards us. I sprung for my horse Cutter and barrelled out to meet them Steers face-on, Sky and Jenny-Lynn kept me covered, as Sweetpepper, Little Peep, and Cydney rode out to join me. " We have to make them turn back into themselves. We'll have to hold tight and make'em veer to the right. That oughta slow them down enough to get' em back under control. With thousand pound of cows, headin straight at us, I was sure prayin' my plan would work. The lead cow came right towards us, the herd on her heals. I let off a couple shots into the air and she turned, her side brushin Cutter as she headed in the direction I had wanted.
"Yippe! It worked, I never doubted ya Boss" Little Peep yelled riding after the slowin' herd.
I whipped my forehead, counted my blessin's then rode back into the gun-fight. Jumpin clear of Cutter as I dove for the side of the chuckwagon.
"Ready Boss" BonBon whispered," Let's go gettum." I let out a whistle that brought JL, Sky, Kiddo, Jolie, Finnegan crawlin and weavin' their way to join me back of the dragon-Wagon. Each picked up a big metal bucket, and snuck off into the thick brush .I followed, my bucket in hand. Movin' silent like,we made our way to where we had Bart and his ratty bunch of rustlers pinned-down. Gettin as close as we could, we stopped, watchin a spell. Then Jenny-Lynn headed into the camp. Bart drew on her but seein' JL. he lowered his riffle. Jenny lifted her wing as if to stretch and we set sail with the special-surprise BonBon and Snowflake concocted. Honey, molasses, and red hot chili peppers land with a splat coatin' all them rustlers from head to toe. Bart stumbled, and landed square onto an ant hill. What fun!

  Hi Sweetpepper
Love your face painting picture and sure looks good! Oh that stinks about the frig and sure does make a mess when that happens!
Today I found a neat place to perch. Its on top of the refrigerator and I can see everything from there. I tossed a few things off the refrigerator and then I chewed on moms grocery list she has hanging on the side. Mom had to rewrite a few things down again since it was chewed on. Mom checked the coupons in side and said it was good they were ok yet and gave me the “eye“. I am thinking this refrigerator perch isn’t going to last long though with mom. “If your alone, I’ll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I’ll be your shoulder. If you want a hug I’ll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I’ll be your smile. But anytime you need a friend, I’ll just be me. Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  MY DARLING WIFEBIRD
THE ENVELOPE GAME IS A LOT OF FUN, AND IT'S THE ONE GAME THAT DAD AND I CAN PLAY TOGETHER, BECAUSE WE ARE ON OPPOSITE SIDES OF THE DOOR. HE SLIDES AN OLD ENVELOPE UNDER THE DOOR, AND I POUNCE ON IT. I REALLY GET INTO IT WITH WINGS SPREAD AND LOTS OF BITING. I WILL KEEP PLAYING AS LONG AS DAD WILL KEEP IT UP. MOM IS SITTING IN MY ROOM WATCHING, AND I AM NOT SURE WHICH ONE OF US ENJOYS IT MORE.

WELL, NORMALLY LABOR DAY WEEKEND IS ONE OF THE TIMES THAT MOM AND DAD SPLURGE AND ALLOW THEMSELVES RED MEAT. DAD GRILLS THICK RIBEYE STEAKS, AND MOM ACTUALLY GETS FOUR MEALS OUT OF HERS. HOWEVER SINCE MOM IS STILL ON THE LIQUID DIET THRU WEDNESDAY, THAT WON'T BE HAPPENING. DAD ISN'T CRUEL ENOUGH TO FIX ONE FOR HIMSELF. IT ALREADY DRIVES MOM CRAZY SMELLING THE FOOD HE COOKS. SHE FEELS GUILTY NOT COOKING FOR HIM, BUT AS HE SAYS HE DID FOR YEARS BEFORE THEY MET. HE'S A GOOD COOK, AND ACTUALLY THEY PRETTY MUCH SPLIT COOKING 50/50 NORMALLY. IT WOULD JUST DRIVE MOM NUTS TO COOK SOMETHING YUMMY AND THEN NOT BE ABLE TO EAT IT.

STARTING ON THURSDAY MOM CAN ADD A BUNCH OF STUFF TO HER DIET, BUT THE ONLY THINGS SHE ACTUALLY LIKES TO EAT ARE SOFT EGGS (BUT NO TOAST!!), BANANAS, MASHED POTATOES, RICE AND PASTA. NO MEAT YET, AND MOM WILL NEVER EAT TOFU!!!

ALL READY FOR THE MILONGA TONIGHT. THE SCRIPTS ARE WRITTEN AND READY TO GO. SINCE I HAVE BEEN SO GOOD (I AM SITTING ON MOM'S KNEE RIGHT NOW), SHE IS GOING TO TRY TO LET ME BE THERE WHILE SHE TYPES FOR THE MILONGA. I USUALLY GET STUCK IN MY ROOM, BECAUSE I CAN'T BEHAVE. HOPEFULLY.....

  Hi SweetPepper
It's Alex.
Mom's dad's computer is fixed now. They had to redo something to get the printer driver to work.
Our dad wore his uniform for the first time yesterday. A lot of the officers did a "double take" when they saw him. Dad said he felt very proud to wear the uniform. He said it was a symbol of trust. The city of La Habra trusted him to represent them. He took mom into the police station and then sat in the comm. center for his required training shift. Dad already knew most of the stuff, from working in the field for almost a year. But he learned a lot about how the dispatchers work.
Today mom and dad are driving to Huntington Beach for a BBQ at mom's brother's house. Not sure what they're having but we know it will be great. Mom's brother is a fantastic cook.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of92 and a low of 66. But in Huntington Beach it will only be 81.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

Your talons look great! Wow, a new freezer will be a big expense.
Mom is ready to spend the last 3 days at the pool if the weather cooperates, then it's back to the old grind for her. She can't wait to get the okay to wear goggles so she can swim laps again.
We are ready for the milonga tonight! All of us are participating in some way, and we hope everyone stops by the ring toss booth, watches the pig races, and giggles at the pie eating contest. See you there! Hugs, Falco

we had a beautiful day today. dad fertilized the lawn and then put the sprinkles on to get the fertilizer into the soil. mom took me outside in my harness and held me near the sprinkler which goes back and forth. as the first wave of water started coming down i got very scared and tried to fly away and plopped too the ground. mom then picked me up and held me tighter so when the next wave of water came it landed on me. i kind of liked it. i dried off immediately because the sun was so bright.

HAPPY TGIF DAY

Oh yea mom has done needlepoint and cross stitching too. Mom loves doing crafts and if something is out she hasnt tried she sure gives it a whirl too LOL.
Glad your mom got her car fixed and no charge is the best too!
As slow as BC is tonight mom is thinking she might finish a whole afghan tonight! Sure hope tomorrow night at the milonga isn’t like this. Today was another pretty day here in the burgh. Mom and I went outside and I got my sun bath. It was a bit more humid today then yesterday but that sun sure felt good any how. Mom always sits on the swing and reads the paper or does crafts and we chat back and forth. Mom says I always have lots to say when we are outside too. “If your alone, I’ll be your shadow.

  Day 29--The Guns Blazin--Battle at Pegleg Crossin'
WOW, now that was too close for comfort. Chuey here with today's Cattle Drive Update. It was just as the sun was settin' in the West, that the gun fight began. In the growin' darkness it becomes mighty hard to see what lurks in the brush near by a rider. The herd was grazin quiet-like when all of a sudden all "hell-broke-loss". Cinn-A-Bun had just rode long-bout the outer south flank of the herd, when somethin' went whippin' pass his ear, dang-close too.
"What the ???" he shouts in shock, kneein' Firestorm into a gallop to rejoin Kiddo, Gus and Willie toward the drag. " RUSTLERS!" went up the call as bullets came a sailin' towards the riders. Well, it wasn't but a second, before Jenny-Lynn, Sky, Snowy and Raffi was kneelin behind the boulders gun a blazin in return fire. Arrows flew towards the treeline, and a yelp came from the grown blackness, " Bart, I dun been shoot in the Vent."
I was just returnin from my trip to spy on their where-abouts when they'd jumped horses and took off into the night. I had hoped to get back before the fun started but let me tell ya, by the time I returned to the herd, the cows was racin' in panic towards the Crick, guns was blastin away at them Rustlers. I sprung off Cutter and dived behind the nearest rocks, takin' careful aim at a big Black galoot, ridin after our herd. He let out a yip when I dusted his tail feathers but good.
"BOSS, BOSS!?" Hulk came crawlin low over to join in the fight. "Jenny-Lynn and Raffi have Black Bart pinned down in cross fire. She wants tah know what you want her to do?"
"Tell her to bring him in alive if she can, we don't want no blood shed"
Hulk got off a few good shots as he ducked and dived the bullets wavin' his way back to where JL had Bart in her sights.
Jedi, Panther, Apache and Spot had managed to make their way up to join Cheyenne brothers. Kaji and Lizzie had their double-barrels blazin' holdin' off the mangy-thieves tryin to steal our Dragon-Wagon. Mikey was busy pepperin' a nasty-tempered bearded crow with rock-salt. "Got- em" he yelled to Kaji as the Crow let out a yelp as the shot bulls-eyed its mark.
"YEE HAAAW, nuthin better then a good gun-fight!" JL yells to me across the open grassland. Pookie and Dixie had raced out after the herd, with TiPaul, Sugar, Chyna and Strawberry in hot pursuit. Angel and Pepper covered the riders as they took care4ful aim towards the trees from where the return fire had come. Pearl and Silver hankered down behind an old wooden box and carefully watched for perfect aim and fired as one. "YOWWWW! Hey that hurt" came the pained response.
Cappy, Chipper and Boo Boo dropped down onto their bellies and began to inch closer to where the Rustlers where hidden. They had a BIG SURPRISE for them. Snowflake and BonBon had been busy mixin up a special gift for their uninvited Rustler friends.

  Hello SweetPepper~
I hope you are having a great day! It's cloudy and cooler here and I am loving it! Having sunshine for so long this summer was a true blessing and we enjoyed every minute of it! It's just nice to have the normal weather back! It feels more like home that way!
We are getting some chores done today because mom has let a lot of things go and this place is a mess!!! Some days she has to pick between cleaning and getting some sleep and lately the sleep part wins! I have been supervising and we have completed the dining room and the living room. That evil vacuum will be out later but I'll be in the bedroom by then! I really hate that thing!hehehehehehe
Dad is on his way home. He's been gone for 2 months now so it's about time he came home! He called mom this morning and told her he got them a Costco membership. The company dad drives for delivers to Costco's all over the US. This is a bad thing since dad had no control when he goes into a Costco! He was delivering at one in Minnesota and went in to get a hot dog and decided to get a membership too! See? He went in for a hot dog and came out with the membership! It's all to scary to think about!hehehehehehe
Your face painting picture is just beautiful. I have been flying around checking them all out!! Just perfect!
I hope you have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

WELL, IT IS JUST 5 MORE DAYS TILL MOM IS ALLOWED TO LIFT THE HEAVIER CARRIER FOR MY SUNBATHS. TODAY WE GOT OUT IN THE LITTLE ONE AGAIN, BUT MOM REMEMBERED TO PUT A NUTRIBERRY IN THERE FOR ME. NOT THE SAME, BUT AN IMPROVEMENT. IF SHE PUT ANY TOYS IN THERE, THERE WOULD BE NO ROOM FOR ME! WE GOT OUT AT 8:45 THIS MORNING, BECAUSE WE ARE HAVING ANOTHER TRIPLE DIGIT DAY. 103 YESTERDAY, AND BOY AM I GLAD I HAVE THE COOLEST ROOM IN THE HOUSE BECAUSE OF MY SHADE BUSH.

MOM WILL BE GOING BACK TO THE GYM ON MONDAY, BUT JUST FOR AN HOUR WITH HER TRAINER. SHE IS SO GLAD BECKY IS A REHAB SPECIALIST, BECAUSE SHE WILL KNOW EXACTLY HOW MUCH MOM CAN SAFELY DO SO SHE DOESN'T OVERDO IT LIKE SHE DID AFTER THE BREAST CANCER SURGERY. SHE IS RUNNING ERRANDS TODAY: LIBRARY AND A COUPLE OF THINGS AT WAL-MART. SHE FIGURES THAT WILL BE A GOOD OUTING AFTER THE DOC'S VISIT YESTERDAY.

THAT VISIT WENT WELL. HE CUT HER PROTONIX BACK TO ONCE A DAY, AND SHE GOES BACK IN TWO WEEKS. IF EVERYTHING STILL LOOKS AND SOUNDS (NO GURGLES) GOOD, SHE WILL STOP TAKING THE PROTONIX FOR THE FIRST TIME IN NEARLY 4 YEARS. AND SHE SUFFERED FOR SEVERAL YEARS BEFORE THAT BECAUSE SHE WOULDN'T BREAK DOWN AND SEE THE DOC FOR HER HEARTBURN.

SITTING ON MOM'S KNEE WHILE SHE BLOGS. DAD IS AT THE DOC'S GETTING HIS RELEASE TO GO BACK TO WORK ON TUESDAY. IT WILL BE NICE HAVING THE HOUSE TO MYSELF AGAIN, BUT I DO HAVE TO ADMIT I WILL MISS PLAYING ENVELOPE UNDER THE DOOR WITH HIM DURING THE DAY. YOU SHOULD SEE MY MOVES!

I love your face, as well! Jenny Lynn has hers up, too, and she looks great. Let's get our talons done to match, that's a good idea!
If you know and love him from Facebook, you can now welcome Felix LaFollett to Bird Channel! His page number is 272339, go see him!
This morning mom was back to animal care, YAY! She cleaned the RVS room, which only has raccoons and ground hogs in it now. Then she did the silver foxes, who are always fun. One of them was jumping on her leg this morning to see what meat was in their bowls.
There is good news at the center, the fisher is going home to Cook Forest tomorrow, and the coyote pups are ready to be released in Mercer County on Tuesday! We bet all those animals will be glad to be home in the wild. The red foxes have been released as well, so the place is emptying out a little. There are still lots of waterfowl and birds, though.
Well, tomorrow is the milonga, and we're ready to party! I am running a ring toss booth, so come by and test your luck on the midway. The food will be fabulous, and we all think Chuey and company will let the cowbirds have the night off.
Hope you are having a great summer day full of sunshine and scritchies. Hugs, Falco

  Hi SweetPepper
It's Alex.
Yesterday was totally wasted. First, mom said she was going to the police station to work for a few hours. She never went. Dad got dressed to take her but she said she wasn't going. Second, mom's dad's computer is totally messed up. Dad tried for three hours to load the software and drivers for the printer but the printer wouldn't communicate with the computer. After three hours of getting nowhere, dad said to take everything back to Staples and have them fix the problems. Also, there is stuff loaded onto the computer that dad knows wasn't there before. Mom's mom and dad have never used Skype but it's now loaded on the computer. Dad knows that, in the end, he will end up fixing it.
Today dad has to sit in the police dispatch comm center for a few hours, as part of his training. Being a total radio geek, dad is rally looking forward to it. Mom will go in at the same time.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 93 and a low of 65.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

  MILONGA COUNTY FAIR
AUGUST COUNTY FAIR MILONGA!!!
Yep, it is that time of year again, and I know everybirdy is very eggcited about the fair.

Date: Saturday, August 30th
Time: 8PM EDT; 7PM CDT; 6PM MDT; 5PM PDT; 2PM Hawaii
Place: Milonga page #165848

Everybirdy loves our County Fair, and that is because there is something to please each and every one of us. The face painting booth is up again, and I have seen some of the designs. All I can say is WOW!

Then there is the pie eating contest, which has nine contestants this year so should be a lot a fun to watch. I am sure we are going to have some messy feathers at the end of that one.

And, of course, the pig races are running again. We have some new riders and some returnees from last year's race. It should be a rip roarin' heck of a good time. We will have four heats, and then the winners of those heats will compete for the title of fastest bird and piggy. You won't want to miss it!

Then the fair food which is under the guidance as usual of our BC Chef Lizzie, who is taking a brief break from her chores as Cook on the trail ride. She has promised us all the usual fair favorites with just about anything you can imagine fried on a stick.

Music? Of course, there will be music. Sam and the Scruffy Birds have been preparing for an entire month, and I know their tunes will have us all tapping our feet, and it won't be Ekkie toe tapping either!!

And finally the Broadway with games and rides galore. From the moth shoot to the Ferris wheel fun will be popping out all over.

So see you there, and be sure to come hungry!

It was a pretty day here today and I got to sit outside again to enjoy the sun.
My mom is one of those kind of persons that try to do two things at once if its possible. Well sometimes she crochets in between doing the BC blogs for me. Last night she noticed she was missing a stitch and looked and it was done 3 rows behind so she just fudged it and added a stitch and when she got to the next row on top of the stitch she added she wasn’t happy with that. She ripped out now 4 rows so tonight she is trying to catch up to where she was LOL. “If your alone, I’ll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I’ll be your shoulder.

  Day 28--Ready for the Battle to come
Well, howdy there all you cow punchers, Chuey here with today's Cattle drive Update. Things are gettin' right touchy 'bout now. With Jenny-Lynn drawn on Bart and evenin' drawn close, we're settin' bout to have us a gun shoot. Black Bart, he's a thinkin' we will be easy pickins but he ain't hankered down long enough to get a real eye-full of just how much bird-power we have on our side.
" Boo, I've been thinkin' long here, and I think maybe we might just take him completely by surprise."Chipper says to me, as I was restin my vent for a spell.
"I was thinkin' likewise myself" I tell her, then firgure I'd best be gettin' back to work. I let out a shrill whistle and Cutter came trotten up ready to go. Springin' into the saddle I head back to check on the drag, and make sure everyone was safe and on the alert back there.
"Sugar? Anything out-a the ordinary back here?"
"Everything is calm and peaceful. Gus and Hulk have rode back to help us keep an eye on the stranglers." Cori says, pointin over by the tree line. I can just make out Apollo and Gus throught he heavy dust floatin' in the humid air.
I give Cutter a quick slap onthe flanks and he is off at a quick trot. We stop by and speak to every wrangler as we make a round about the herd. Pullin back into point position, I settle into my saddle and do me some serious calculatin'. I figuring that we should be cross Brady Creek west of Brady by high noon. From there we enter the hills and high country through to Cow Gap this side of Coleman. That's a long, steep trail we were headin into, what with newborn calves, and rustlers we were certain to have some troubles for sure!
Pulling on my reins, I spin Cutter out from the point and gallop off to the north, Sky and Jenny-Lynn watch from their hidden nest among the rocks. "I wonder what Chuey's up to?" Sky says out loud to no one in particular.
"She's goin to ride round back of those mangy rustlers and get herself some first-hand information. I know it won't be long before that varmint makes his move to steal the herd and collect himself some horse too." JL watches through her telescope.
" Well boyz, it's nae-onto-noon, not much longer now. What easy money this is gonna be Boyz. Change the rands some and collect the cash in Wyoming." Black Bart laugh, spittin chewin-tabaccie from the side of his beak.
"money, lots of money Boyz"
Twitch finishes cinching his saddle on his grey nag, and nods agreement. "Lots of money Boss, lots!"
Chuey listens silently, a grin closing her face, " you just wait "boyz" you just wait!"

YOU WILL BE DROPPING THE STARTING FLAG FOR THE PIG RACES AGAIN THIS YEAR. I KNOW YOU WILL DO A WONDERFUL JOB, AND IT GIVES ME SOMETHING EGGSTRA TO LOOK AT....BEAUTIFUL YOU!

SO GLAD TO HEAR THAT YOUR MOM'S CAR REPAIR WON'T COST HER ANYTHING. THAT IS WORTH AN EGGSTRA DAY, AND G-MA WILL JUST HAVE TO WAIT.

I GOT OUT BRIGHT AND EARLY FOR MY SUNBATH THIS MORNING AT 9, BUT I STILL GOT ANTSY AND MOM HAD TO BRING ME IN AFTER 30 MINUTES. THAT SMALLER CARRIER IS STARTING TO BUG ME. WHEN MOM CAME IN TO GET ME FOR BLOGGING, I FLEW OVER TO THE LARGER CARRIER AND CLIMBED INSIDE! SHE COAXED ME OUT WITH NO PROBLEM, BUT SHE FEELS BAD BECAUSE SHE KNOWS WHAT I AM ASKING FOR. NOW I AM ON HER SHOULDER CLEANING HER TEETH WHILE SHE TYPES. I HAVE NOT TOUUCHED THE ANTIQUE DRESSER IN HERE SINCE MOM'S SURGERY. SHE CAN'T BELIEVE HOW GOOD I AM BEING.

THE ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE COUNTY FAIR MILONGA IS UP NOW, SO IF YOU WANT TO COPY IT AND SEND IT OUT AS AN EMAIL, THAT WOULD BE GREYT.

MOM GOES FOR HER POST OP VISIT WITH THE GI DOC THIS AFTERNOON, AND THEN NEXT WEEK SHE HAS THE SAME WITH THE SURGEON WHO REPAIRED HER HIATAL HERNIA. THE STERI STRIPS STILL HAVEN'T FALLEN OFF, AND MOM IS GETTING IMPATIENT ABOUT IT. DAD TELLS HER TO LEAVE THEM ALONE AND LET THEM COME OFF BY THEMSELVES LIKE THE DOCS TOLD HER TO DO. VERY ENTERTAINING.

YOUR WELL-BEHAVED HUSBIRD,
KIDDO

  Hi Sweetpepper
I hope they fix that latch correctly this time. Your mom doesn't need the extra aggravation of a latch not working, especially having a walker to move in and out of the car.
Yesterday after the pool, mom made eggplant patties and breaded zucchini in the oven. It worked wonderfully well, they look fried, but don't have all that grease on/in them. Nothing better than eggplant and zucchini this time of year.
Today she's dropping off some of those goodies to Aunt Gin, then later having dinner with her sister. It's going to be a kind of laid back, calm day for us and for mom for a change. Of course, we will get our cages cleaned today since garbage pickup is tomorrow, but we will still have mom's attention all day.
I hope you are having a great day filled with sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Kaji, TiPaul, and Sky for 10k!, Peppino, Divo, welcoming his old buddy Tooth home & Falco, fly free, Tooth.
