Dear Fawkes,

I hope you had a wonderful day, a day that makes a grey feel greyt. May the blessings of the day, fill your hearts with joy that lingers through the coming year.
I have spent most of my waking hours shredding paper. You wouldn't believe the mess I made. Pringle even came and helped me for awhile, until I looked at her, that being the cue for her to leave.
I'm now settling down for a good preening session after some serious flying which thoroughly wore me out.
Mama and I got a wonderful gift, a new backpack carrier that Mama says is much more comfortable for her than my old one. As long as I'm comfortable, I'm fine. I've even been in it and it's not all that scary.

A very Merry Christmas to you and yours,

Poirot

  Hello Fawkes,
Thanks for adding Titus' picture. I took a copy of it. We are hoping to have the slideshow ready around the new year and will fly by to let you know when it's up.
I am sorry to hear about your feather problems. Hopefully they are resolved now. I like to snip off my feathers, but apart from some setbacks here and there, I'm pretty much leaving them alone.
Things have been so crazy here over the last year. There really has been no time to blog normally. I'm still in love with my Toad and Spoon. They are really great buddies and keep me company all the time. I've taken up shredding paper. It's a good quiet activity that seems to calm me. Then of course I have all my wild time. Mama's taken to bringing me downstairs and letting me fly up them, several times a day. It's good exercise for both of us. :) The other day, I had a major fly with Spoon session. It included some magnificent maneuvers, with me tossing Spoon so hard it went skidding some distance across the floor, then in the next flight, landing softly with it in both feet. I can't fly with Toad, he's too big, but I like to squeeze him so he makes his cute little squeaky sounds before tossing him on the floor.
The thing I am most proud of, is my new names for Pringle. I've been practicing and figuring out different ways to call her. It started with Prrrrrringle, followed by, Pringlewingle and now even Squeeeeeengle. Pretty crazy, huh?
Well, I'd best be going now. It was nice to talk to you after so long.
Take care and have a Greyt holiday season.
Poirot with a vote for you.

  Hello Fawkes,
I'm making a memorial slideshow of all the Rainbow bridge birds and would like to add a picture of Titus. Could you have your mom upload one to one of your pages?

Thanks, Poirot

  Hi Fawkes
I am putting together my list for the All Star baseball team, but I do not know what positons anyone plays. Since I cannot vote for my friend Kanye (he is on my team), I have you on my list as his flockmate. Can you let me know your position?
Thanks,

Hey, I've got a favor to ask of you. A fellow Grey and a flockmate of yours on that Red-Tailed Team has the chance this week to become the next Bird of the Week if his friends and acquaintances bless his page with lots of votes. Could I count on you to help me make GRADY a winner come next Monday? I sure would appreciate that, as would Grady, I know. Good luck in your baseball game today. K*v*

  Hi Fawkes!!
Hello there BBFF! So very sorry that this is a generic blog and a very short one at that, but we don't have much time, but we wanted to introduce to you our newest frother...Kiwi! He's a Blue Crowned Conure and he is 4 years old. He was rather neglected, so he's plucked out a bunch of his feathers, but mommy thinks they will grow back in in no time at all with a little love and attention. He talks a lot...even more than Ellie!! And he bit mommys finger really hard the first day he was here and then he said "NO!! Bad Bird! Don't Bite!!" Mommy just laughed and laughed while her finger was bleeding all over the floor...sometimes I just don't understand humans. Anyway, if you get a chance, please stop by and say hello to Kiwi...we've been telling him about all of our wonderful BC friends, so he's pretty excited to have his own page! We love you all!! BBFF!! ~Huey and the flock
