She jumped off the table onto her human dad's shirt.
She would not let go! We were looking at the ciaques that were next to her. Torn between one or the other. But, she won our hearts..:)
He and I fell in luv with her when we had to peel her off my husbands shirt to pay for her. She is still cuddly after all these years.

  `Ü´ TITANIC ~~ An Invitation for You!
Miss Scooter-Pie, I do hope that, even without my bringing another installment of “A Voyage of Love and Romance” to your page this afternoon, that you will be sure to stop by my page at least once during the day today and see what My Mr Rio and I have accomplished. We have persuaded our fellow voyagers, Mr Rane de Bozio (My Mr Rio’s good featheriend and travelling companion), Mrs Asha Diva StubbMeister (a society lady whose acquaintance we have made on our Adventure), and Mr Romeo of the Tennessee Mountain Williams (my [UGH!] fiancé), to allow us to post one picture each with them in it. How eggciting! Now you have the opportunity to see what they all look like!! ~~~~ I also have one other goal to accopmplish in coming to you today while taking a day’s break in our storytelling. I am certain that by now you have heard of the upcoming “Feel the Love on the BirdChannel” Valentine’s Day Dance, being hosted by the bird pages’ very own Mr Djimo Beaumont Teasdale and his lovely Miss CoCoPuff, to be held this Sunday evening, February 15, beginning at 6:30 pm EST! My Mr Rio and I had been so looking forward to being able to attend The Dance! It has been since before my frother Jake and I ‘escaped’ to Antarctica that My Love and I have been in each other’s wings, captivated by a romantic pas de deux… And I’m sure you understand Miss Scooter-Pie, how having embarked on our Titanic Voyage could have interfered with our being able to be in attendance at the dance! It is for that reason, and because there are few MORE romantic settings for a Valentine’s Day celebration than at sea on a luxury liner such as RMS Titanic, that My Mr Rio and I have invited Mr DJ and his wonderful Miss CoCo to hold the Valentine’s festivities aboard Titanic! And they have accepted!! Isn’t that just the most luscious idea?! I DO declare!!! ~~ Therefore, it is with the utmost pride, pleasure and gratitude that I convey the following information to you regarding the “FEEL THE LOVE ON THE BIRDCHANNEL” VALENTINE’S DANCE. The Gala will be held aboard HMS TITANIC. Access to the affair will be through the host DJ’s page (No. 44753). ~~ If your plans should happen to bring you to my page on Sunday, en route to this wonderful soiree, Mr DJ (in the form of his Avatar) will be in ‘`Ü´ Ruby’s Rose Garden of Friends’ (My Aviary). You will be able to be transported to the location of The Dance (i.e. Mr DJ’s page) by clicking on his Avatar, if you so desire. ~~ And now Miss Scooter=Pie, Dearest Featheriend, “The sea is lovely dark and deep. But I have promises to keep. And miles to go before I sleep.” For myself, I truly hope to be seeing you long before Sunday evening at The Dance! Until then…`Ü´ ♥’s ®

  `Ü´ Ruby & Her Mr Rio ® on a Titanic Adventure
(You may wish to read the information my momma has posted in the “How we met:” section before continuing.) THE CHARACTERS: RUBY FRANCESCA BEGONIA—Born to one of the very best flockilys in Charleston, South Carolina, a mere 2 2/3 years old when she became engaged to Romeo of the Tennessee Mountain Williams. Intelligent, poised, and beautiful (a true GRITS Girl), Ruby had been schooled since clutch-hood to be everything a young BirdWoman of society was expected to be. Ruby’s betrothal to Romeo, heir to a Tennessee Avian Dynasty, was considered an admirable catch, a perfect pairing of wealth and social position. Yet her spirit rebelled against the rigid confines and expectations of Parrot society controlling her destiny. ~~ RIO FEATHER DUSTER—was an 8-year-old artiste from Hanover, Pennsylvania. Ejected from Woody’s Bird Farm at only a few months of age, he worked a variety of jobs. After a stint as a wood carver, he came to Santa Monica, California where he created portraits using his laptop and Photo Shop Elements 7 on the pier in exchange for bird seed. Working his way from place to place on tramp steamers and similar accommodations, he went to Paris where he studied art. Subsequently, he found himself able to return to the land of his hatching in the grandest style possible for a bird with no money: sailing on the Titanic on a ticket he won in a poker game. ** ** ** ** `Ü´ THE STORY: The Titanic was called “The Ship of Dreams”. Ruby, however, was more inclined t view it as a slave ship, taking her back to America in chains. ~~~~ Just a few blocks away from where Titanic was moored, in a Southampton pub, Rio and his good featheriend Rane de Bozio, are in a hurried game of poker in which the stakes include two 3rd class tickets for Titanic. Just as his featheriend is threatening Rio with “Ma va fa’n culo testa di cazzo—“, Rio hops onto his back and says, “Sorry, you’re not gonna see your mama again for a long time…. ‘Cause you’re goin’ to America! We’re a couple o’ swells!! We’re gall darned Royalty!!! Full house boys! ~~~~

  ~~~~ On Titanic, Ruby, her mother, and Romeo were settling into their Parlor Suite Rooms 52, 54, and 56. Ruby was redecorating the sitting room with some recently purchased paintings. When Romeo comments on the “mud puddles”, Ruby retorts to her mother, “The difference between Romeo’s taste in art and mine is that I HAVE some.” ~~~~ The Captain orders his first officer to take Titanic to sea. “Let’s stretch her legs!” Rio and RaneBozio take to the bow, and marvel that the race is on between Titanic and several dolphins. There is a luncheon for the 1st class passengers, ship’s officers and company men responsible for the ship’s design. ~~ Romeo orders for himself and Ruby without the slightest consideration for her parrotsonal preferences. The feisty young LadyBird comments to the Captain and ship’s designers how Dr. Freud would have interpreted their choice of the name “Titanic” as representing something quite different than the size, stability, and power of the SHIP. After Ruby leaves the table in disgust, another passenger seated with them says to Romeo, “She’s a pistol, Romey. I hope you can handle her.” ~~ Rio has settled in to do some sketching on the third class deck, and spies Ruby above him, on the 1st class deck to which she escaped from her boorish luncheon partners. And Ruby spies Rio spying on her. ~~~~ Later that evening, Ruby has reached the limit of her insufferable engagement to Romeo and his compulsion to absolutely control her very way of being. She rushes from the dinner table, and escapes to the aft deck of Titanic, with every intention of throwing herself from the railing. ~~ As fate would have it, Rio is on deck as Ruby rushes by. He cautiously follows her broken-hearted cries, shocked to discover her unthinkable intention. He approaches her slowly, as she is now perched on the outside of the railing. And quite simply he says, “Don’t do it.” After some very subtle parrot psychology, Rio successfully coaxes Ruby to climb back over the railing to safety and LIFE. But just as Ruby releases the grip of one foot to swing it back over the railing, she accidentally snaps off a talon on the other foot and is very nearly lost to the sea. Rio flaps to the top of the railing and in a flash grabs onto the loose foot as he says, “Listen! I’ve GOT you. I WON’T LET GO.”

We are hosting the Baseball Season Spring Training Start Barbeque on Feb. 21st from 4:30 pm EST to midnight and we would love for you and any friends you want to invite to attend. Bring any rescued or in-need-of-being-rescued U2s you know also. We are cutting it short at midnight because most of the guests will be in training, and we don't want to tempt anyone to fall off their training wheels. The event will be held in New York City where we live; it will be in Central Park which will be closed for our event. Tents are being erected next to the Metropolitan Museum. Turk is catering. We are not providing air transport because we don't want to hurt any geese. Come to my page (Meyer’s Parrot Oliver #94769) which will allow you to teleport to the central tent. Looking forward to meeting you there.

  `Ü´ Hello from the F-R-I-G-I-D SOUTH! <Ö)
Everybirdy urged and invited us to “Head South…Escape SOUTH!”. But, my Dearest featheriends, you must remember that our escape route is being mapped by my impetuous frother Jake! The very same (Ö> CR Jake who has given us all pause with his ‘squawk first, think it through later’ style of humor and, it would seem to be apparent from our current location, his ‘hear the first part, go back and finish listening later’ style of taking information in. It might have been wiser to say, “It is lovely and warm here where we are in FLORIDA or SOUTH CAROLINA or GEORGIA. We will hide you and keep you and Ruby safe until this whole situation can be resolved.” But no…NO-o-o. You all said ‘South’. And ‘South’ was all Jake heard! I think he was so scared that he set his Avian GPS for ‘South’ and just WENT SOUTH…until there was no more south left!!! So here we are — I have no idea where — cold and hungry and LOST, with no idea what to do next! ~~ My Dearest Miss Scooter-Pie, we are in dire need of your immediate help. Please…PLeASe…PLEASE…I BEG OF YOU…Can you suggest somewhere, a bit more specifically, that two parrot fiblings might be able to hide themselves whilst we endeavor to sort ourselves out?! Obviously, the only direction we can go from where we find ourselves at this moment is…UP!!! Since we are already at the bottom of the world, I am begging you, help us find some direction! ~~ We have been able to procure shelter and some provisions which will allow us to remain here (wherever it is that we are) for a day or two. By grace, we have also made the acquaintance of a most hospitable gentleman who was erecting the directional sign you see in the picture on my page today. He quite generously has offered us the use of his laptop computer while we remain in the area, thus allowing us a method of communication with you who have shown such concern and caring for us. Would you be so kind as to share with us any SPECIFIC suggestion you may have for our next move? (Please include City, Country, Continent…and Hemisphere might be helpful as well!) We can see no other way out of our current dilemma without your help. ~~ We will be monitoring my BirdChannel page 24/7, hoping to discover our first step homeward. We look forward to hearing from each and every one of our Featheriends VERY soon. Until then…`Ü´ & <Ö) PS: We have heard through the Avian Grapevine that our Momma was taken rather ill yesterday…to the point of fainting (more that ONCE)! I just KNOW that it is because she is without us. Please, HURRY!!! PSS: As we currently have access to the internet, this message will automatically register one vote per parrot receiving it.

  `Ü´ Greetings, Miss Scooter-Pie!
“Now is the time for all good Featheriends to come to the aid of Jokester Jake.” ~~ As you know, Momma has sentenced my frother, CR Jake<Ö) [Self-proclaimed ‘Funny Bird’], to an indeterminate length of time in Solitary Confinement as punishment for his completely insensitive remarks about his little fister—ME!—at a party. However, in his pleading for support to secure his release from his confinement, you (his loyal featheriends) have rushed to assure me of the innocence of his comments, the love and affections with which he truly holds me, and the importance of forgiveness in flockilys, particularly between fiblings. Momma has also tried to use the situation as an opportunity to practice forgiveness and unconditional love. And I am willing to submit to her assignations…TO A POINT. ~~ Here’s the deal fids: I will be overjoyed to restore my frother’s freedom on the condition that I can see, through the willingness of his Featheriends to participate in his redemption by meeting a challenge of my design (with Momma’s approval, of course) that his offense truly was not intended to inflict parrotsonal damage and that, no matter how poorly executed, his conversation was meant only as banter, holding no portion of malice. ~~ All this is to say that if you all, as his dearest Featheriends, are willing to stand for his innocence by suffering the slings and arrows of a thousand questions (not really, but I’m feeling poetic at the moment), then I shall be convinced that I have misunderstood completely and will likewise forgive him completely…and RELEASE HIM IMMEDIATELY. ~~ Here’s all you have to do: Each day, I will pose a question about “a day in the life of Ruby and Jake.” The answer is already somewhere here in the bird pages. Momma will determine a point value for correctly answering each question, each day. All birdies who answer any question will be credited the point value. All points, from all birdies, every day, will go toward Jake’s ‘bail’. When enough points are accumulated, Jake’s bail will be paid, and he well be set free to accost us all with Jake’s Jests once more. ~~ Your successfully answering these questions will prove to me that you, his dearest Featheriends, know This Bird at least as well as I. And if you know that he meant no harm, then I should have seen this as well. ~~ READY? SET?! Then show up on my page first thing tomorrow morning. Look for the question and any clues in the ‘My motto:’ section. Loads of Luck to You in your search. And stop back any time to tell me the answers. I leave you with a vote of appreciation. Momma and I will keep you posted as the ‘Tot. Board’ rises! Until then…`Ü´

  (Ö> Hiya Scooter-Pie :(
[That’s the ‘Shortcut Key’ for a frown, don’tcha know? Mom didn’t! She had to look it up!!] ~~ I’m a not-so-very jovial fid today. (Hence the frown.) Got m’self in BIG TROUBLE at a party Saturday night. Somebirdy was squawkin’ about bein’ happy to get away from some ‘furry four-leggers’ (felines, don’tcha know). Didn’t wanna hafta spend time with ‘em at a social event too. But I figured it might be more like home for ‘em if’n I offered the use of one or two of our NINE at the party. But, just in case that idea wasn’t received very well, I offered an alternative too—nice guy ain’t I?! ~~ I reasoned that, since fids are really the ideal comp’ny for fids, maybe my Fister (`Ü´ Ruby Francesca Begonia) would make a better companion. THAT’S WHERE I GOT M’SELF IN DEEP DOO-DOO!!! ~~ Well…SOMEHOW my remarks got back to my very own, sweet little pain-in-the- … … my Fister, and she got all hurt ‘n’ embarrassed and ev’rything. And tho’ she never said anything to ‘Her Momma’, Mom decided I had pushed it just a little too far this time, and I’d hafta make it up to Rubes. ~~ So now I’ve gotta see if’n I can redeem myself in both Ruby’s AND Mom’s eyes. So here’s what I’m askin’ all my featheriends to do: Whether you were at the party or not, you know me well enough to know what a jokester I am. Could ya do a pal a favor and stop by Ruby’s page (and I even broke down and put her Avatar in my ‘CR Jake’s Jungle o’ Jokers’ Aviary for easy access!) and give me a good recommend? It’d sure help me out. (This solitary confinement cage Mom’s got me in ‘til I can make it up to the Rubester ain’t exactly COMFORTABLE…if ya know what I mean!) Ya don’t hafta worry about sendin’ me a note. I’ll know ya love me by seein’ your glowin’ reports on Ruby’s page. Just convince The Rubicube to love me too! ~~ By the way, Mom’s also promised “Boo Boo” (…what a name! YUCK!!) that she’ll be doin’ somethin’ special with her to help smooth her ruffled feathers too. Keep an eye out for that. I’m sure it’ll work in my favor as well. AaaaaAA!! Oh yeah, and if’n your ‘Vote Button’ is missin’, I hid it on Ruby’s page. You can pick it up there when ya go to ‘talk me up’ to her! Scream at ya again soon! CR Jake <Ö)

Well here we are again> HEE HEE HEE. Just a little update. Mama was resting and listening to Bongo talk. He kept saying Babieee Guuurll, This andf that he would say come here babieee guuurll and stuff like that and all of the sudden he said BABIE GUUURLLL Marry Bongo. Well Mama was real confused by that one and was wondering where it came from.(sometimes she really don't know and that one was a shocker) Well she was telling someone at work about it and they said he might have heard Merry Christmas and just said Merry Bongo. This made more sense to Mama than Marry Bongo. Well we thought it was funny and wanted to share, LOL And here is some real news!!!Guess who has some eggs....2 of them... Niah and Anya. YA HOO. We hope they are fertile. If they are we will be aunts and uncles in about 30 days. Niah has gotten mean as a rattle snake so we all just stay as far from him as possible. Jazzy sounds like Mama when she talks. We have an account on Facebook and like it better than Myspace. Mama didn't remember making an account but someone sent her a note and she logged in and has made some friends. LOL she was even invited to a sports bar nearby for some karoake. She don't sing so good and she don't drink either. LOL, Well hewre is a vote for you. Happy New Year.

  Stormy here
Twas the night before Christmas, he lived all alone In a one bedroom house made of plaster & stone. I had come down the chimney with presents to give And to see just who in this home did live. I looked all about a strange sight I did see, No tinsel, no presents, not even a tree. No stocking by the fire, just boots filled with sand, On the wall hung pictures of far distant lands. With medals and badges, awards of all kind A sober thought came through my mind. For this house was different, so dark and dreary, I knew I had found the home of a soldier, once I could see clearly. I heard stories about them, I had to see more So I walked down the hall and pushed open the door. And there he lay sleeping silent alone, Curled up on the floor in his one bedroom home. His face so gentle, his room in such disorder, Not how I pictured a United States soldier. Was this the hero of whom I’d just read? Curled up in his poncho, a floor for his bed? His head was clean shaven, his weathered face tan, I soon understood this was more then a man. For I realized the families that I saw that night Owed their lives to these men who were willing to fight. Soon ‘round the world, the children would play, And grownups would celebrate on a bright Christmas day. They all enjoyed freedom each month of the day, Because of soldiers like this one lying here. I couldn’t help wonder how many lay alone On a cold Christmas Eve in a land far from home. Just the very thought brought a tear to my eye, I dropped to my knees and started to cry. The solder awakened and I heard a rough voice, “Santa don’t cry, this life is my choice; I fight for freedom, I don’t ask for more, My life is my God, my country, my Corps.” With that he rolled over and drifted off into sleep, I couldn’t control it, I continued to weep. I watched him for hours, so silent and still, I noticed he shivered from the cold night’s chill. So I took off my jacket, the one made of red, And I covered this Soldier from his toes to his head. And I put on his T-shirt of gray and black, With an eagle and an Army patch embroidered on back. And although it barely fit me, I began to swell with pride, And for a shining moment, I was United States Army deep inside. I didn’t want to leave him on that cold dark night, This guardian of honor so willing to fight. Then the soldier rolled over, whispered with a voice so clean and pure, “Carry on Santa, it’s Christmas day, all is secure.” One look at my watch, and I knew he was right, Merry Christmas my friend, and to all a good night! From the KFF fock and family V4U

Well we finally got to get on BC and blog all our friends. Mama has been very busy and said she wanted to help us blog but just didn't have the time. Uncle Charley went home yesterday and we are all sad and missing him. Anya is in the nest box and Niah is guarding the entrance so we are thinking we may be aunts and uncles soon. We are not sure what is going on. Rosey still hates Halo and hisses at him every chance she gets. LOL She is just Jealous. Bongo and Jazzy are still the same old same old.

  Hello Scooter Pie
Yeah Jazzy flew into the bathroom and Mama was scared she would land in the toilet. She read that drowning in the toilet was one of the #1 household accidents for birds. She Didn't land there but did a good landed on the window sill. But the bathroom door remains closed when she is out of her cage. Hee hee. Mama is just waiting for Bongo to fly now but he is being lazy. Mama might put him on a stick and make him flap his wings and pull the stick out from under him to show him he can do it, Well here is a vote for you. Have a great day.

Come visit me, Halo, Rosey & Jazz Man.
