My former owner was being admitted to a nursing home and they didn't allow birds in there (hey! we get old, too!)My former mom named me for Bonnie Prince Charles of England, but mom and dad call me Charlie for the singer Charlie Daniels with whom I share my hatchday of October 28th with. (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.

Cherry-Headed Conure

grapes and cheese, cliche polly crackers like Saltines and Cheeze-Its

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 we are having beautiful weather here too and mom says she would love to have it all year long but dont think that is possible so take it while we can!
So you have company staying eh and not the perches are all moving around too...hope my mom doesnt see that article!!
This morning mom had an appointment with the eye doctor. It was for the yearly field vision test which mom says is no fun at all. Mom left with her bag of crocheting and snacks and said maybe she should pack a lunch too cause it ends up being an all day affair most times. Another reason mom hates going there. Today at school the one grand was playing soccer in gym and ended up with a fracture of her left wrist. She has a temporary cast on but will be getting the permanent one soon. No more softball pitching till this is all healed up but at least she is right handed so can still do her school work “I love you to the moon and back my friend” Leaving a vote along with my note~~Your forever friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  HI Charle ♥
I have missed you so much, we need to make sure we see each other more often...okay? Jewels gives Charlie a kiss to seal the deal...

Mom had quite a day yesterday cheering for her Seahawks...she was hoarse the next day and tired. It was an awesome game and we won in OT. Go Hawks!

It was funny to hear Napoleon yelling for the Hawks along with mom. He was making a clapping sound and yelling Gooooo Hawks... Dad said it was super fun just watching mom watching the game...lol

Today is the last day of summer and I think our weather heard as it is supposed to rain the next few days. Dad sure hopes it is nice on Saturday as it is the second to last race of the year.

The plants are still on our porch and in fact today the AC was on so not winter here yet.
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.

I make my mom laugh alot too. Blue sounds like quite a character and its good your dad keeps an eye on him LOL
Today was another pretty day and I finally got to go out for a sunbath too. Mom washed clothes and hung them out on the line. She pulls the big curtain back and aims my condo so I can see out the window and watch her hanging the clothes. I yell really loud and mom hears me cause she looks up at the window and waves to me when she is out there and that sure makes me happy too. I wish we could have this type of weather all year round too. “You know you’re a bird person when your pockets contain more almonds then money.” Leaving a vote for you my friend… Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Oh yea having to share time with the other fids is rough but it does work out ok too. That is nice you all get to visit with Aunt Jeanne together on the patio too.
Guess mom is done flying around for a while cause today she went to get her feathers cut. They were getting rally long and mom said they were getting all tangled up in the curling iron. When she got home she disappeared for a good while and when I yelled for her she would yell back. Finally when she came out she had curls again so guess she gave herself another perm. “A real friend tells you when you have bird food on your beak” Leaving a vote for you…Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

mom got out and got the roses trimmed like she wanted. She did her trimming in the afternoon after it was nice and warm outside. I also got a good shower today and mom thinks I look a lot better. Taz has been preening me a lot lately.

She also watched "The Butler" in the early afternoon before she want out to do her roses, she thought it was pretty good.

Tonight, the parronts watched "Draft Day", the parronts both liked it.

Nope no thunderstorms here in a good while now. In fact the weather guess keeps saying rain here but havent seen that either.
This evening after dinner mom cleaned my condo as usual. Then she cleaned up the kitchen from dinner and put everything away and sat down a bit. I flew over into the kitchen and sat on the counter. Mom kept coming over or looking over to see what I was doing but I just sat there. Mom asked me if I was going to take over the kitchen duties LOL. She also said if I weren’t potty trained she would of chased me back to my condo by then. I enjoyed just sitting there for a long time. Dad was over in the kitchen and I got him to pick me up finally to take me back to my condo. “Life is not always a matter of holding good cards, but sometimes playing a poor hand well.“ Left a vote for you my friend~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Missed you too little buddy.Sure hope your dads health problems are all in the past now and good things moving along. Mom always drinks water with lemon and dad drinks a little bit of coke in the bottles so not much bought here and no big boxes but good you got the neighbors that give you the box at least. Yep imagine Baldrick will be over to visit and investigate it all .
This morning I was free to leave my condo with the door open but in the morning I like to take a little nap first. Its always hard to get awake for me anyway. Then mom said she had to clean in the back rooms a bit so my door had to be shut…she says I tend to get into trouble if left unattended Pfftttt. Then she got that done and though I could see her I had to stay in again cause she was making a huge pot of beans and another of rice for me. Guess the freezer didn’t have much left in it from the last time. I bet someone else has been eating my beans and rice cause I cant believe I ate all mom made before. Well at least once she got that done I did get out for a while so that was good. “Life is not always a matter of holding good cards, but sometimes playing a poor hand well.“ Left a vote for you my friend~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi my love,
I am missing you as well...hopefully we can see each other more often...
The garden is doing great even though it has been super hot here.

Nothing much new here today. Harley is doing okay, found out that she has diabetes, she was drinking a lot of water and peeing a lot so off to the vet they went, she is not super fond of the new food but she is eating it...she hasn't got much choice as that is all she can have now. Dad cleaned our room really well so that Harley wouldn't be able to find any food around our cages. Mom asked us to try and keep our food in our houses and not on the floor.

Mom has her second day of PT tomorrow, her shoulder was hurting quite a bit today so we'll see how it goes...

Love, your Sweetbeak

Oh yea its better to tell the people I bite then to bite them and tell them I dont LOL. Yeah we have windows 7 but never had trouble before and its not all the time...just maybe once or twice a week and weekends always is the worse.
I have been going to bed a bit earlier then I was before so guess the days are getting shorter mom says. Last night I just got on my perch to wait for mom to cover me for the night and the dog next door started to bark. If I wasn’t so tired I would of gotten up on that windowsill and barked back at him like I do in the day time when he is out. Finally he must of went in the house and I gave mom a kiss good night and she covered me for the night. ”Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward”. Leaving a vote for you!!

Sounds like a fun day at your house with you and Baldrick and then you preening him almost bald LOL. Mom is hoping BC is better tonight but again isn’t expecting miracles since it’s the weekend though. Mom did contact BC to tell them but that was about it. Well mom is pretty tired though it was skin sis and the grands yard sale but you know how that goes LOL. I did get to sit outside a lot and yell when people came to look at stuff. Mom told the little kids that I bite so they didn’t put their fingers in my cage or mess with me…she fibbed cause I sure don’t bite LOL “All you need in life is a friend who has millet” Leaving a vote for you …your forever friend.

This BC is so slow tonight and we keep getting the squawk page so we cant blog much tonight cause of it …sorry!!! Today was such a pretty day that mom washed clothes and hung them on the line. She likes doing that with the sheets off the bed so of course they were flapping in the wind too on the line. I got to sit outside again today !! Well skin sis and the grand want to sell the yard tomorrow and Saturday here so if we arent on that is why. Well actually skin sis calls it a yard sale but they never sale the yard or at least not yet. Depending on how late and tired mom is but will try to blog but didn’t want you to worry in case we cant on Friday or Saturday. “All you need in life is a friend who has millet” Leaving a vote for you …your forever friend.

I dont think the duck belongs to anyone and is more wild and free but likes to come here to eat. Guess there is a sign out somewhere that says free food or something like that cause they all know to stop here to eat. Oh the movie was really good and sure did enjoy it too.
Mom put me in my wingabago today and off we went to the new vet. I got my nails done and my beak trimmed though I just had them done this spring. Now I have to be more careful climbing around so I hang on tight. The vet seems nice though he doesn’t talk much yet but I was just happy to leave there when it was all over with. Now mom said she wants us to visit this other vet too…I say we got one that is enough!! “All you need in life is a friend who has millet” Leaving a vote for you …your forever friend.

  Hi Charlie
Thanks for telling us about the movie and how nice the one kept you mind so much of Chi chi. This morning mom and I were watching out the window at the male duck that comes here often. Dad says he is a very old duck. He is always alone so must of lost his mate we think anyway. This morning he was on top of the cover on the neighbors pool sitting there just as comfy as could be. Mom and I chuckled at how he just sat there and must of felt the water ripple beneath his body under the cover. The neighbor doesn’t like the ducks sitting on his pool like that though cause they don’t just sit if you know what I mean and it makes a mess of things. The neighbor came out and snuck up on the old duck and scared him and he flew away but we did see him later in the day. “All you need in life is a friend who has millet” Leaving a vote for you …your forever friend.

Sure glad your all enjoying the watermelon and think a whole one at the fruit stand is $3.99 but usually mom just buys a half or less which is sold by the pound then. Mom got this big cantalope that is as big as a watermellon and it was $3.69 at the fruit stand so bought it over to share with you all too!!
Boy I messed up this morning! Mom always puts me on the wastebasket in the morning to do my hurry up and then I get a treat. Well this morning I didn’t do the hurry up and mom kept sitting there with the treat bowl in her hand waiting on me. I finally flew to the bowl and promptly made mom lose the treat bowl and all the treats were on the floor. Needless to say I didn’t get a treat or do the hurry up for that matter either. Mom put me back on my condo and she swept up the mess and in the wastebasket it went. Now I must remember this tomorrow morning so I get the treat and not the wastebasket.!! “Anyone of us can be a rainbow in some ones cloud.” Leaving a vote for you …Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Thanks for the corn on the cob and yes I can eat it ok and mom often gives me a cob to chew on when she buys it. I bought a watermelon to share with all of you too. It has seeds so we can spit the seeds at each other LOL. My girl Suzy cant eat corn cause she is allergic to it and makes her toe tap and there is a friend of my moms that has a female ekkie and she cant eat any corn either. Guess I am lucky cause I dont have any trouble with that at least.
When I am outside for my sun bath there is a little chipmunk that sometimes goes scurrying by. He has a hole in the ground and goes in it but if you saw him go in it, it just looks like he disappears into the grass. The hole is not seen very easily at all. Today he was in the pine tree and mom thought he was a bird till she saw his body stretched out on the limbs, Sometimes he goes by fast with what looks like a nut in his mouth. “Anyone of us can be a rainbow in some ones cloud.” Leaving a vote for you …Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Yep ever notice when you dont want a child or fid to say something is what they will say and best to give no reaction or it just encourages it.
A couple of weeks a go on BC there was an advertisement for bird theme tshirts and one of the birds were ecletus so mom ordered one. It has a female and a male eclectus and looks like they are kissing~ think of me and my gal Suzi Q LOL. Any way mom had it on this morning before she went shopping and I wouldn’t let her alone. I kept trying to move the male eclectus off the shirt. I sure didn’t want my mom having another fid that looked like me in this house but that green eclectus just wouldn’t take the hint and leave. I was really happy when mom came home and changed that shirt! “There are big ships and small ship but the best ship of all is friendship.” Leaving a vote for you my friend ~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

I never picked up any words from Chi chi but did learn to do her whistle. mom says some goofy words some times and I pick them up ..the kind that make no sense LOL.
Last night BC was so slow that we didn’t write much in our blogs and sure am hoping its better tonight. It seems every weekend it is slow and messed up and takes forever to do the blogs too. Mom and I were looking out the picture window today and we could see clear across by the park and could never see like that before and then saw someone cut down a big tree.

Well mom and dad went to the trail today and mom walked her 3 miles and dad rode his bike for 9 miles so they were happy. I was in lock down of course and gave mom the sad eye when she got back so I was left out of my condo till she started supper then.

Yes lots of people were fearful of bird flu before I think too. Mom has never taken me to walmart but think we went to kmart one day and nobody noticed me there either. Usually I am real quiet and just when I got a tad noisy then people noticed LOL.
There was a nest of robins in the tree by our porch. When mom and I sat outside we would watch the mama get worms for the babies all the time…there was 3 of them. One day they got out of the nest and sat on the tree and then the next day they left and never came back though we do see robins around we are not sure if its one of them or not. They sure seemed to grow up fast though. “We can never forget the fun we’ve had, laughing till our face turned blue.

I asked Suzi about going to the movies with all of you and she agreed too so see you all and you pick the movie...anything is fine with us.
Mom had clothes to wash and bed to strip today and got some cleaning done also. Then she decided she should go to the craft store. She picked me up and put me in the carrier down stairs and off we went! I had lots to say in the car and since I couldn’t see her I kept saying peek a boo too. When we got to the store mom met up with her cousin and her daughter and talked to them and I was real quiet. Then after that as mom was going thru the aisles I started to chirp the whistle a bit and some people looked but mom just never let on. We got in line to pay and I left out some more chirp whistles and at this point mom was just thankful I didn’t do the wolf whistle. Mom paid for her stuff and we came home then. Its good to go shopping sometimes and not just to the vet or to get groomed mom said and I sure agree LOL. “We can never forget the fun we’ve had, laughing till our face turned blue.

Thanks for liking the picture of me and my gal Suzi going on a boat ride. She sure is a purty gal.
The one grand daughter got new earrings for her birthday last month and didn’t take them out since she had put them in. With 3 kids in the family the mom figured at her being 11 she took them out now and took care of them. Apparently that didn’t happen and DIL had to take her to the ER today cause the one was embedded in her ear and couldn’t be taken out. It had to be cut out so don’t think the grand will be having pierced ears after this heals up though! “We can never forget the fun we’ve had, laughing till our face turned blue.

Mom keeps forgetting to look on the ipad to see if talking Pierre is on there. That is funny how Doo doesnt like him but I can understand why also.
This evening mom went into the kitchen and I flew over by her but landed on top of the microwave. Ours is flat on top and very smooth and I had a hard time standing up on it. Mom said I looked like I was ice skating and laughed at how funny I looked but I soon flew off and got on the back of the chair.

Oh mom takes the chain off my jungle talk toy right away. Wonder if mom could get Pierre on her ipad? Sounds like its a fun game to play but moms ipad is a first generation so its old and might not be able to put it on even if it is available though.
The ducks have been back! They come almost every evening and is the male and female pair and dad gives them food and corn. There are now 4 rabbits that come here to eat the corn too and they sure know dad. The rabbits and ducks both let dad get pretty close to them when he is feeding them too. Dad went out in the nick of time this evening to feed the ducks as they were headed to the beach (aka the neighbors pool) and came back to eat instead of going swimming. “You listen when I have a problem and keep dry the tears from my face.

That talking Pierre sounds like a pretty nice feller and if he looks like me he must be LOL. Oh know what you mean with the moms..I get that look sometimes too but the moms are very patient with us and love us bucket fulls too.
I was on my perch early tonight and ready for bed and mom said my light was still on and too early for bed yet. I didn’t pay any attention to that though and just kept on sitting on my night perch. Mom picked up my jungle talk toy and hit buttons but it didn’t work so she took it down stairs and put the back from that one that did work but had a bad back on it so now I got a good one working again. Mom left the other one sitting on dads work bench in the garage to see if he can get it to work. It was working earlier cause I had it in the bathroom while mom was taking a bath. That might have been when it got broke cause I did treat it pretty rough. “You listen when I have a problem and keep dry the tears from my face.

Mom says when Angel Chi chi first came here to live she has a smaller cage and she would open the doors above the bowls and be out in the morning but then mom bought clip locks and she couldnt do that any more. It sure sounds like you all have a bunch of fun leaving each other out etc. Your poor mom probably gets pretty frustrated trying to get you all done and to work on time LOL.
Mom and dad took Gma back to her house since dads brother is there now to be with her a while. I was not happy to not have Gma to sit with and didn’t come out to sit with mom either. I did go with mom to get her bath but was ready for bed and on my night perch earlier then usual. Mom thinks I am very tired since things have not been in original order the last week so hoping now I will get back to my old self again soon. “You listen when I have a problem and keep dry the tears from my face.

I am glad my mom doesnt play musical cages with me but she does put me outside in chi chi old cage so that might count eh? Otherwise things stay pretty much the same since I am not a good birdson with changes.
This morning mom gave me breakfast and my lunch and then said she had to leave with dad and Gma to take Gma to some doctor so I had to spend some more time in the condo. By the time they got home though I did get some out time and enjoyed that. “You listen when I have a problem and keep dry the tears from my face.

  Hi Charlie
Yes we felt really bad when Capt.Darling passed and know Chi chi helped him over the bridge so it made it a little better. Nice that your parronts got to visit with Dixie mom and Nana. So you and Baldrick are still being good buddies too...that is good. This is so much fun being able to sit with Gma and she seems to like it too. Every chance I get I fly over to her. Mom takes me to the waste basket and I do my “hurry up“ and then I go back with Gma I used to just sit on Gma’s walker but this is a lot more fun. “When we first talked to each other I knew we would always be friends.

  Hi Charlie
That is funny how your dad says that about Moggie and the airport LOL. Our furnace is back on again! Mom is thinking maybe she took those winter things off the bed too soon. It sure got colder here and of course no out time for me today. Yesterday it rained and was damp so I didn’t get out to enjoy any sun now for a few days. Mom says eventually the sun will come back and I can go out again. I sure miss seeing the wild birds and hearing the chickens across the road at the farm though. “Friends are kept forever in the heart” Leaving a vote for you my friend~~ Gus. (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Charlie
Sometimes dad would fly the little helicopter in the house and I would just sit on my condo porch and watch though.
This morning mom was sweeping up the floors and getting ready to mop. I kept watching her and then she shut my condo door with me in it so she could put the rest of the plants out on the porch. Some of them are pretty big and she had to prop the door open so didn’t want chancing me flying out the door! Then she got that mop out she had last week and scrubbed the floors so I had to stay in the condo till she was done. I don’t like that thing and fly all around but mom showed me it wont hurt me so I was glad I was in the condo though. Mom says it will take a while but eventually I will get used to it and be ok just like I have done with all the other things she has gotten and I have been scared of. It just takes time. “Friends are kept forever in the heart” Leaving a vote for you my friend~~ Gus. (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Charlie
Thanks for cheering me on at the races and tell Baldrick I heard his loud whistle and that got me moving even faster if it was at all possible. It was great to place and have rode in the derby before but never placed before so quite an honor. So you had a flight eh? Arent they fun? I fly all over now and so happy my mom didnt get my feathers trimmed this time either.
Yesterday dad and mom went to visit with skin brother and his family a bit. Dad had a little helicopter that you can remote fly and gave it to the grands. The one grand daughter got the hang of it pretty quick and was flying it ok. Guess once they left though skin brother tried to fly it and had it in the very big tall pine tree at the very top. He was thinking what ladder he could get to get it out when the grand son said to just turn it on and leave it fly out of there. Guess skin brother didn’t think of that LOL. At least it was still in one piece by the time they quit flying it and had lots of fun with it so that is good. “Friends are kept forever in the heart” Leaving a vote for you my friend~~ Gus.

  Hi Charlie
Mom says I over preen my feathers too since I just have down in some places. But I say its cause I had that bacterial infection when I was a baby and started picking feathers then and its hard to break old habits.
We were so happy to see Chi chi got BOTD. We miss her so very much and wish she was still here with us but it wasn’t to be. I like to be with mom while she writes my notes to you. Sometimes I will sit on her head and watch what she writes and other times I sit on the end of the couch top and take a nap and then other times I try to feed the computer buttons. For some reason mom doesn’t like me doing that but tolerates all the things I do. I figure if mom touches them that much I should at least try to feed them.! ”The best thing about the future is that it only comes one day at a time.” Leaving a vote with the note…Your friend, Gus.

  Hi Charlie and flock
Thank you all so much for BOTD!!

♥To Those I Love♥
When I am gone, just release me,
Let me go~ so I can move into my
Afterglow. ♥ You mustn’t tie me down
With your tears; let’s be happy
That we had so many years. ♥ I gave you
My love, you can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have
Shown, but now it’s time I traveled on alone.
So grieve for me awhile, if grieve
You must, then let your grief be comforted
With trust. ♥ It’s only for a while that
We must part, so bless the memories within
Your heart. ♥ And then when you must
Come this way alone, I’ll greet you with
A smile and a “welcome home”.

Your friend forever, Angel Chi chi

  Hi Charlie
So you think Baldrick could preen too much and be missing some patches of feathers? Oh yea we sure can tell when the parronts are not going to stay home or going somewhere by what they wear and the things they do before leaving the house. LOL. Today dad painted the trim around the garage door. It was starting to peel off and looking bad so dad scrapped it off and repainted it . When its warmer the sun shines right on the door and with the asphalt drive way its gets really hot so best to do it today before it gets hotter. I am wondering if we even need to worry about that though LOL. ’’The best thing about the future is that it only comes one day at a time.” Leaving a vote with the note…Your friend, Gus.

  Hi Charlie
That is funny how you preen Baldrick and he lets you do it too. Everyone knows when mom has her purse out she is going somewhere. Well it was on the table yesterday and I nebbed in it a bit and then dad came up and asked mom where she was going. Mom just had everything out cause she had to pre register for her mammy LOL. Now this morning mom put the purse on the chair and I nebbed in it a bit, Pretty soon mom had her jacket and told me by by that she was going to see her sister a bit and off she went. She got back late so sorry this is a bit short and will make up for it later.. “ Life is better when you stop looking back and start moving forward.” Left a vote for you!! Hugs~ Gus. (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Charlie
That is good that your mom is going to visit with Aunt Rose a bit and know they will enjoy each other alot. That is funny how Baldrick leaves you out while your mom cleans your condos...nothing like maid service eh? LOL Mom had a dentist appointment today to get her teeth cleaned and checked again. When she walked in to the waiting room there was just one seat left so mom took it but kept thinking about cancelling and making it for later. Then she decided she was there and just get it over with and glad she did now. She was happy everything was ok and doesn’t have to go back again for 6 more months unless something happens so sure is hoping nothing happens now. Usually after she goes to the dentist and if everything is ok a few weeks later something happens and she had to go again any how so heres hoping that don’t happen this time! “Legend says: When you cant sleep at night, its because you are awake in someone else’s dream.“ Leaving a vote for you my friend ~~Gus.

  Hi Charlie
Yes its scary anymore with the way the world is and can understand kids going to private schools or being homeschooled too. Oh yea Jewel is my girlfriend,Suzi, flockmate so know who you mean. Thanks for helping me out there and bet it will be fun and to think its our last one here on BC...so sad. Boy was it cold outside here this morning! Mom said it got to 23 last night as our low and finally warmed up today. We even had sunny skies which was nice but still so cold and a bit windy as well. It may be a good while before its warm to sit outside in the sun again. At least I know it should happen some time soon and at least winter is (or should be) behind us now. “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)
