(Yup, I'm just a red neck conure!)And a note, just like the Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill, I am an old man wild caught parrot with that special open ring on my leg..

Hi! My name is Charlie-Thank you for making me BOTD 10-29-13

I am a Cherry-Headed Conure from Newton, NJ.

In my townhouse--mom plays get'em with my keys. Sometimes I go inside the townhouse for a little roost.

Fingers! Wanna bite 'em! My fister Cookie squawks some nights past 10pm. Can't get enough roost!

Mom works really hard with me--I was never properly socialized and allowed out of my cage. So this is the life!

Lately, I've been flying over to Carter and Darling's. (Makes Captain Darling really mad!)Now I'm bunking with Baldrick the nanday--no more lonely nights! And, mom doesn't have to towel me and preen me! I over preened Baldrick, so now I am alone again. I get to visit Baldrick and we catch up on preening our pinfeathers. Have a sweet girlfriend Jewels now! Wow!.

  Hi Charlie
Yes the one grand goes to the middle school in that district that the stabbings took place. The middle school and high school arent connected but are on the same grounds. Mom and dad went to see moms sister and her husband a little while today. Mom hasn’t seen her sister since last year when she left to spend the winter in Arizona so they were happy to see one another again. I took a little nap while they were gone so that worked out good for me too. “Dear Winter, I am breaking up with you. I think its time I start seeing other seasons. Summer is hotter then you”. Left you a vote~~ hugs, Gus. (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Charlie ♥
dad had his colonoscopy and everything was great...it was just a routine check up since he had never had one before and he is 72.
How is your mom doing now? I hope by now that her eye is doing much better.

We had another beautiful day here again, getting spoiled and we like it. Mom finished planting her flowers today and she is going to take a picture of it tomorrow. Dad sat outside with while she was planting her flowers so that was nice. The trees in the backyard are full of flowers and full of bees. Mom hung a hummingbird feeder on the tree but she didn't put any juice in it yet.

When mom washed all the windows outside the sunroom she noticed that water leaked in at the bottom of the sunroom. Luckily, the water stains will wash up with a little soap, water, and elbow grease. Dad picked up a can of stuff that is supposed to stop leaks, he saw it on TV and was able to get some at Wal*Mart. If it doesn't work then it is easy to return and get our money back. We sure hope it does work though.

Mom got the newsletter for the bird club all done and sent out. She also got the video of Napoleon on Facebook.

Wing hugs and love, your Jewels ♦

Thanks so much for understanding why we would ask the questions since it could help skin sis too. Mom doesnt get on FB a whole bunch but tries once in a while at least. The one grand is spending the night here and I love sitting with her too. I think she should just move in permanently and then I could divide my time between sitting with the grand and sitting with mom. She is used to being busy with all her activities and think mom and dad are a bit slow paced for her LOL. “Its rumored BC will end soon and I know we all be crying the same tune.

  Hi Charlie
Thank you very much for the information about your moms eye surgery. Mom was asking since skin sis has some eye problems but not at all like your moms. In an accident when she was 5 her head swelled and put pressure on the optical nerve which eventually died and never came back so skin sis cant see thru the middle of the one eye now so different then what happened to your mom so that is why mom was asking. Thanks for being so kind and explaining it. I keep hearing other fids outside making a lot of noise. Mom saw some commotion going on so looked in the pines alongside of the house and the sparrows have a nest built in it. Every year a bird decides to build a nest in those pines right by the house though there is plenty of woods they pick those pines for some reason. At least dad has the trees topped out so now the birds go out the other side and not crap across the porch like they used to so mom doesn’t mind as much now. “Its rumored BC will end soon and I know we all be crying the same tune. But we were lucky to have met and all our good times on BC we will never forget.” V4U~~A BC friend forever, Gus. (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi sweetie,
I can't believe it has been so long since I checked my mail but I was happy to see your note to me...

Chica heard from Blue that your mom is having some issues with her eye, keeping her in our prayers that all goes well for her.

Dad is not able to eat anything today as he is doing the prep for his colostomy tomorrow morning, mom is keeping him company and not eating anything either but she is still drinking her coffee lol
Almost time for his second round of that yummy drink...another 1/2 gallon...glad it is not me...

The battery is still in my jungle talk toy so he didnt take it out LOL. Hmmm a corneal transplant eh? why do corneals go bad or something done sometimes with cataract surgery? Probably hard for mom to blog so she can answer later on that if she can. Not being nosy on her but always good to know things like this with the trouble skin sis has with her eyes too. Can never learn too much and could help her on down the lane later if you know what I mean. Mom was trying to get some things done here today and pretty soon she left me with dad again! She wasn’t gone long and said she just went down the road to an Easter craft show. Mom said she enjoyed looking at all the pretty ideas people have but I don’t think she bought anything though. I didn’t see any bags at least unless she left them down stairs for me but mom said they don’t have bird stuff at the craft shows. ”When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who instead of giving advise, solution or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. “ V4U Your BFF, Gus.

Thanks for the offer of the picture of the one that looks like me and Chi chi but mom saved it off the FB so she has it. Your mom is doing very well just having the eye surgery done and all...sure glad of that! Did she have more done then just cataract surgery? Some strange things are going on here in this house! Mom has a flower that dances in the window when the sun shines in and for a good while the flower was missing though the leaves would dance if the sun was out. Mom looked everywhere for that flower and figured she had picked it up and threw it away not knowing what it was and today she found it under my play gym of all places! Now she found a AAA battery on the floor and has no idea what it could of came out of so we are still on that mystery! ”When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who instead of giving advise, solution or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. “ V4U Your BFF, Gus.

of course I am willing give up all of my gold for you my love.

We are all happy campers here now...we are thinking that spring has sprung...the weather has turned the corner. Our temperatures are in the 60s during the day and in the 50s at night. Mom actually was able to do a little gardening in the back yard, not really in the back yard but on the deck cleaning up some of the planters. Some of the mums are really starting to grow so mom is happy about that. She is planning on getting some pretty primroses to put in all of her planters for some spring color.

Dad is fine, he was just taking it cause his doctor is overly cautious. lol

Love you...hugs and kisses, your Sweetbeak ♥

Where did your mama find that picture that looks like me and Chi chi? Sure hope Starbucks is ok and dont know the particulars of it but sure am hoping for good results. Mom slept pretty good but when she took deep breaths and let it out she could hear her lungs weasing. She decided to get a doctor appointment so she did and the doctor gave her two prescriptions to get filled and then she had to go for chest xrays too. Mom was surprised she was running a low temperature too so she was glad she did go or would really be sick by Monday and hopefully now she will be on the mends then. “Lots of people want to ride in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.“ Leaving a vote for you ~~ Hugs ,Gus.

Thanks to your mom for posting the picture that looked like Me and Chi chi. Mom put it in her pictures and just loves it since it looks so much like us ...other then we would of never sat together like that LOL. Mom didn’t sleep good last night and the last time she looked at the clock it was 2:30 so she was in slow gear all day today. Then to top things off everything she did ended up she had to redo it 2 or 3 times. Thinking mom is hoping she sleeps better tonight and has a better day tomorrow. Mom and I did some sittings together though so that was good,~ sittings with mom is always good even if she is tired. “Lots of people want to ride in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.“ Leaving a vote for you ~~ Hugs ,Gus.

Yes sure know what you mean about the parronts life being busy and seems it all hits at once for my parronts too. We got about 2" of snow today and suppose to get another 2" tonight and the temperature is suppose to get really cold too then so this will stick around for a few days at least. Yesterday moms cousin came over awhile. Mom and her had some stamping up things they had ordered so moms cousin was picking them up. Mom and her always chat a long time…you can tell they are related with the gift of gab LOL. After she was in the door I flew over to greet her and sit on her shoulder a while and she wasn’t one bit scared of me either.

Happy Valentines Day!! The one grand was here last night. Mom and dad picked her up after she got off the school bus and then they went out to eat and came back here a bit. The grands parents were at the funeral home all day and evening and the grand didn’t want to miss school so opted to stay with mom and dad instead. My mom and dad took her back home so she could get her bath and wash her hair before her parents came home and then mom and dad came home too when the grands parents came home. The funeral was today and they all went to it then. “Some days are diamonds and some days are stone but as long as I have you my friend I will never be alone.” Dropping a vote off for you !Your forever friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

So I guess your mom would stay on FB though? Know they are hoping to get enough signed up to keep cost down too. This morning mom was trying to get her laundry done and cleaning. She said the water guys were coming to put on another water meter and she wanted to get it done before they came and not sure that happened though. They were pretty noisy and I had to be in lock down when mom answered the door but once they were down stairs I could be out then cause they went in and out thru the garage. They were here a good while so thinking if mom didn’t get the washing all done she will be finishing it up tomorrow now.

Thanks for the information on the high gloss papers.Sure dont want them either...mom only uses the black & white papers. Boy BC is Slower then a turtle again tonight!! Last night mom and dad was watching the opening of the Olympics and the shows were so impressive. I think moms favorite was the 11 year old girl doing different things. She didn’t seem to be scared to do anything. It was a great show.

  Hi Charlie ♥
The team was formed in 1976, so it has been a long wait to bring the Lombardi trophy to Seattle.

In the heat of the celebration after the Super Bowl, some of the fans broke some glass panes in the historic Pioneer Square pergola but it only took 2 days for them to raise the money to repair them and they gave $25,000 to the Seattle Parks Foundation. Also, during the parade with all those 12s there were no arrests...how cool is that?

The city of Seattle held a parade for the team today and over 700,000 people lined the streets to watch the players in the parade. Marshawn Lynch sat on the front of one of the vehicles throwing Skittles to the crowd just like they do to him when he scores a touchdown. He also was dancing on the hood of the vehicle as well...he was having a great time. Later, someone gave him a drum and he banged on the drum as the parade moved on. The parade ended at Century Link stadium. All the players were then introduced one by one as they came out of their tunnel as the fans cheered...it was awesome to watch...the players were recording it all as well for themselves.

It is snowing here right now and has been since about 2 o'clock this afternoon, at this rate the parronts won't be going grocery shopping tomorrow morning for sure.
We weren't expecting any snow until Sunday, sure hope it doesn't snow until Sunday...

I loved watching the game with you and all the food was so yummy...

Mom still has not gotten a pic of Nappy on his back yet...

Can only imagine how many papers your mom must go thru! Mom separates the paper as she reads it since its just me we have enough. Why dont your mom use glossy ones? We never get them but just was wondering. Today I kept standing on my jungle talk toy and looking at mom and then would put my toe nail in a screw hole but no matter what I did that jungle talk toy wouldn’t work right. Finally mom saw I was trying to get her attention and she picked the jungle talk toy up and saw it wasn’t working and took it down stairs then. When she came up it was as good as new and plays really loud again too!

Mom did the cards a long time ago on the computer but likes doing them the way she does now better. Also, the things dont get jammed in the computer and all messed up either. Sometimes mom will make birthday cards with the persons picture in it but that even messes up sometimes too. This morning when mom uncovered me I saw her looking in my condo at my poo and had a concerned look on her face. She quickly took the tray out and then saw she had a big smile on her face and was relieved I could tell. Guess it looked like there was red in with my poo and when mom looked closer saw the back of the page she had down on the underneath had red ink print on the newspaper. Mom always puts the black and white pages up and if there is colored it goes down . This one had some red and came thru the pages with my nightly poo. Sure glad it was just red ink too! “Count your rainbows, and not your thunderstorms.“ Leaving a vote for you. Your kissing cousin, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Thanks for the nice compliment on moms cards. She likes sending birthday cards instead of Christmas cards but ends up sending both it seems. Well the temperatures are warmer to day and thinking we are over the cold freeze for a while at least. Trouble is when its warmer then the snow comes so we might be in for that now. The grands temperature was normal all day yesterday so she went back to school today after being home sick for 3 days. I helped mom clean today but mostly mom held me and loved me lots so we had another great day.

Mom doesnt go on FB much and just does BC mostly but does go to the FB BC cause she doesnt want anyone thinking she is ignoring them either. Maybe that other group will work out for a site in time too and will be more like BC is now. It was cold around here again but not as bad as yesterday and most of the schools had a two hour delay around here. The one grand didn’t go to school since she is still running a temperature but maybe by tomorrow she will be able to return then. Mom and her cousin and friends finally made it today to make a few cards. I really think they sit and talk more then they work but mom did come home with 3 nice cards she made. “Count your rainbows, and not your thunderstorms.“ Leaving a vote for you.

I had fun at the Milonga last night with you, as long as I am with you I always enjoy myself...

Mom watched the Pro Bowl...she is going to miss football until it comes back in August...she is really looking forward to the Super Bowl and watching her Seahawks play next Sunday...

The 12s gave the Seahawks quite a send off today...thousands lined the streets to see them off...

Mom was playing with Napoleon tonight and had him on her fingers and had her hand placed on his back while she was kissing his belly when she bent over with him and ended up with him laying on his back and not hanging on to mom at all. He was funny cause as soon as he let go of mom's finger he dropped his head way down so he was looking at the floor. Mom will have to try and get dad to take a picture when he isn't looking or he will puff all up and want to get dad...lol

We are not in the single digits, around 30º + or - a couple of º...We got snow this morning after dad got back from the coffee shop. It was enough to cover the road but did not stay on the grass. It did not stay for very long and then it snowed again for a while but that didn't stay either thank goodness.

Mom is doing the BC till its gone too and never did do FB much before either so dont know how much she might do once BC is gone but nice to be able to chat once in a while with everyone at least on FB.
In todays mail was the parrots magazine mom gets each month and there was a pretty female eclectus on it. Now mind you not as purty as my gal Suzi ~nobody could be as purty as she is! Anyway mom sat down to read that article right away and though she didn’t find any thing new about me it was interesting. Then mom remembered that was her last parrot magazine and had to send in a new subscription for it so now we are set for another year on it. Good thing it came to jar moms memory on renewing it again. “All you need in life is a friend who has millet.” Leaving a vote for you! Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

BC is as slow as molasses tonight for some reason. This afternoon mom and I was watching out the window in the kitchen. That is where we usually see the wild birds but there wasn’t any at all. Then we saw in the tree was a hawk and knew why the wild birds weren’t around! The hawk must of seen mom in the window and he flew off into the woods which is pretty far from our house though we can see them. After a while mom and I looked out the window again and the wild birds were back eating so that made us both happy. “The wind of heaven is that which blows around our fids.” Leaving a vote for you.

Glad you liked that picture of me listening to my jungle talk toy. There was one mom also put on of me standing on the jungle toy too but it got pushed to the bottom of the blogs. Mom isnt on FB much but has been because of the BC but yes between BC and FB it keeps one hopping.
Yesterday when mom went to the grocery store (which is called Giant Eagle in our neck of the woods here) she looked in the magazine section and they had the bird talk annual 2014 out for sale. It has an African Grey on the front and says “7 tricks to train your parrot right“, if your looking for it. The one BC shows for the points is not the right one but that is not saying you wont get 2014 if you use your points on it. Mom did one year but she got the year before edition and not the new one out. I saw my friends Chyna, Green, Pico in the magazine too! I am sure others are in it as well but just looking thru it I did see them. “The language for friendship is not words but meanings.” Hugs, Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Mom is not on FB much at all and in fact since the BC FB is on is the most she has ever gotten on and that is like once a day if even that. Last night it was very cold here and the furnace ran almost non stop. Mom put another cover on top of my cage cover. I sure was glad I had my warmer to keep me warm too. Mom had thoughts of going to the grocery store and to get her blood work but changed her mind since it was so cold here. She was afraid the car might stop and be out then in the cold even more. She made a big pot of chicken noodle soup instead for her and dad and mom and I played together too. “The language for friendship is not words but meanings.” Hugs, Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Another reason she picked an ekkie to buy so she didnt worry about egg laying and would know right away what I was. Wow glad Miranda didnt catch on cause I was counting cards LOL. Oh boy would she be mad at me!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Mom says we got a new year and took calendars down and put new ones up today too. Guess its on the calendars though the family did hoot and whistle (so did I ) when the ball dropped on television at midnight last night. Mom got most of the decorations back down …well other then the ones she forgot like she always finds them in a few months and then says to herself “ Well I guess I missed that one“ LOL. Now its just time to wait on spring to arrive but mom says that will be awhile siggghhhhh. “We all take different paths in life, but no matter where we go we take a little of each other everywhere.” ♥ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Happy New Year, my handsome Charlie...
dad was feeling a little better today and got up for a little while but it didn't take long before he needed to go back to bed...hopefully by tomorrow he'll feel even better...no New Year's parties here tonight or any night for that matter...lol

I love your profile picture...

The party was lots of fun but the best part was being with you and watching the ball drop and then there was that KISS!

  Hi Charlie ♥
we all have a stocking to hang by the fire too but mom didn't get them up this year...hopefully, she'll be in a better Christmas mood. She is planning on going through all of the Christmas boxes and getting rid of a lot of stuff and only keep the actual stuff she wants to use.

I think dad must have caught the flu, he has been very sick, he has been in bed all day. Sure hope he starts to feel better tomorrow.

It has been cold and foggy here. Mom was very busy today getting the cages clean and getting us our breakfast done...whew!

Well, tomorrow is the last,day of 2013...hard to believe, doesn't seem like a year has gone by already...

I am determined to get better at FB, it is always hard get used to something new. It will get better the longer we use it...right now it is hard since we are blogging on both spots right now...

  Hi Charlie
Oh yes Suzi and I will be there on New Years Eve to help bring in the new year too. Sounds like lots of fun. Yep dont know how to make me look not so skinny and notice all the other fids with the bird talk magazine had the same problem LOL. Mom shuts the curtains by my condo at night and then she opens them in the morning. They are right by my play gym too so I get up on the top perch and watch out to see the wild birds and what the weather is doing. Today its raining out there which looks nice but mom says I wouldn’t like being out there cause its not very warm. I think mom has a point there LOL. “Live well, laugh often and love much” Leaving a vote for you my friend. Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Charlie ♥
did you have a wonderful Christmas? Which one of the stockings hung by the fire is yours?

Being on FB is a little different but hopefully it will work out well for us eventually...

Wing hugs and love, your Sweetbeak ♥

  Hi Charlie ♥
you are so cute when you are blushing...I bet I could fit in your stocking...hehe
Mom has never heard of using ginger root as a supplement...is it available in pill form, like in Wal*Mart? It does sound intriguing...so mom is going to look into it.

Mom got a call from her doctor's office, they had been trying to find a rheumatoid arthritis doctor in the area. They have not been able to find one that is willing to take medicare, the closest one is 132 miles away...it is not a good time to be travelling north...

Is your mom on Facebook? We now have a group that is private so that only members can see our posts and our group. The only way to get on is to request it so if your mom wants to join let me know and mom will get you on...if she isn't already there...

Now, lets eat those pom avrils...

Wing hugs and love, Jewels ... there is a milonga tomorrow night....

  Hi Charlie
Mom is crocheting between blogs cause its going so slow. Today was bed day again here at the ranch LOL. Mom and dad wrestled with the mattress cause dad says he thinks the stink is gone from it. Mom told him to be sure its gone before they bring it back up from the garage! Guess dad was sure (boy is he going to be in big trouble if it isn’t) cause him and mom got it back in the bedroom again. Mom said it will be nice to get in and out of a nice size bed instead of this low one built for a small person. Now if it just has the smell out of it things will be ideal. “Faith is taking the first step, even when don’t see the whole staircase.“ Your kissing cousin, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Charlie ♥
Mom had a doctor's appointment in the morning just for a check up on how she is doing after her steroid shots, so far so good but he does want her to go to a rheumatoid arthritis doctor to check to see if that might be part of her problem. He also wants her to take Prilosec OTC to help with the heartburn she is getting from taking three Aleve every day to help with the pain in her hands and arms...He also suggested that she use a paraffin wax treatment on her hands as well...dad has one on Tuesday for his regular blood check up.

It was a super nice day here yesterday, got up to 58º and the sun was shining...a big difference from a few days ago when it was in the 20s. Talk about weird weather. The sun was out today but didn't get that warm and it is only 28º right now and there was a dusting of snow on the roads this morning...

Our Seahawks won and shut out the Giants 23-0...it was awesome...

There is an ornament that looks just like you but it is my best friend, Calabar who passed away over 10 years ago...

Bring that mistletoe right on over here...Jewels start giving Charlie lots of kisses...

  Hi Charlie
We got about 4" of snow today but mom was happy she got down to skin brothers before it got real bad but coming home it was slick and she was happy to pull into the garage again. The grand called mom and was upset because her dad had went to the store and when he came back he pulled in the garage and the kitten went up in the car motor and didn’t come out. She was worried it was stuck or something so mom told her to take some milk out to it and it would come out and it did so mom saved the day for skin sis too LOL. The grand sure loves that kitten and worries about it but that is a good thing cause she takes very good care of it too. “Sometimes people ask how can you be friends with someone you have never met and we tell them you have never been on BC I bet and that about sums it up too my friend!“ Your BFF, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Charlie
I like wicker toys the best and the only cardboard box I like is an egg crate when mom hides treats in it.
I am thinking this little heater mom put in my condo is pretty nice and snuggled up some with it last night but if I get too warm I just move further away on my perch. In fact when mom picked me up this morning both my toes were nice and warm though the one I tuck under me was a little warmer then the other. It used to be one foot would be cold and one would be warm. Yep thinking I am going to like this toy mom got me for Christmas just fine. Mom bought me one of those heated perches but I never would get on it so this is a lot better cause its not a perch but sits behind the perch I sleep on. “Sometimes people ask how can you be friends with someone you have never met and we tell them you have never been on BC I bet and that about sums it up too my friend!“ Your BFF, Gus (RIP Chi chi)
