MIA and The Cockateils (Weiro for you Aussies)

I know I have been out of the blogging loop this week, between the frustrating blogger issues, my elderly neighbors being in a car wreck (they will be ok, Miss L is home but got cracked ribs, Miss A is still in hospital because of low blood pressure) life in general, and then getting ready for tonight when myself and Lil Sara have an over night stay at the hospital for her to have a sleep study...She possibly has sleep apnea, which would explain why at almost 3yrs old she still does not sleep thru the night...

But in the meantime I thought I would share a couple of my pets with you...Incase I don't get back later today to post the pix I took in the garden this week.

These are my "baby" birds...Each day we wheel their cage out on to the front porch and each night hubby brings them in...not sure what we will do once we are too old and grey to get it up and down that step since these guys can live for 25yrs...The cage is taller than me at 5"6'.

Hey Ma' whatcha doin'?

This is "Boy" and he is our newest, we got him to keep Schnitzel company after Spunky our original male was killed by on owl this past Christmas night...hence why the cage comes in each night now...

This is Schnitzel ..She is not so up close and personable as Boy but she is a little loopy and totally sweet...Her name suits her personality to a T...She is also the only Female I have known that can woof-whistle...Something she learnt from our dear departed Spunky.

Boy again...I have about 20 photos of him up close because...well, Boy likes to get up close to you...worries me since he was doing it to one of the cats the other day...Boy was hand reared by the lady at the rescue center were we got him a couple of months ago.

Blessings Kelsie

How cute! I had a parakeet when I was a child,he could make quite a mess-I bet yours do too. I know they enjoy being outside.

I've never had any birds. I think they are very cool though.

I hope all comes out ok with your daughter. I have sleep apnea as well. I have never heard of a child so young having it. I will be watching for updates. Please let us know.
