Hi, it has been awhile. great hearing from you. We Quakers must stick together. We are the ONLY birds that are illegal in some states! Oh, does that make Mom MAD. Mom is very glad that the BIG EVENT was such a huge success. She has backed off a little. She still has her "route" where she puts up posters for upcoming events and spay/neuter info and some places allow a donation jar. She did her run last week and took in over seventy dollars from 6 jars! She did volunteer to organize the "Doggy Wash" on the last Saturday in July. She has plenty of volunteers, the shampoo has been donated and the fire department is allowing ARF to use their big parking lot and water. They also have two members that, one cleans ears and one trims toenails.Mom just got an e mail from the new president (she doesn't like him) about organizing an adopt-a-thon with the SPCA at a new pet food place. As usual her first instinct was to reply that she would do it but she decided to hold off and see if someone else steps up. Mom loves helping animals, of any kind but hates the BS and politics that goes on. The first few years were great but as new people joined and struggled for dominance, the difficulties began. She has more of a "go with the flow" attitude now. Mom and Dad don't have any specific plans this summer. They like taking day trips so they are home that night. They have only left us twice and both times a very nice lady who is a pet sitter and knows how to care for birds, came in twice a day. Mom and dad went to the Toledo Zoo in Ohio and the Brookfield Zoo near Chicago last summer. They leave real early and then are back that night. Their favorite place to go is Mackinaw Island but they have been there so many times that they think it is a bit crazy to go there AGAIN. Mom would like to go to the Cinncinati, Ohio Zoo but Dad said that would have to be an over nighter. So, they will think about it. They are both busy with the vegetable and flower gardens all summer too. We have had weird weather. All lsat week it was cool, dreay and raining and then it got really hot and humid and we had BIG thunderstorms. We were lucky that our little town was skipped but some towns lost a lot of big trees. The tornadoes that hit Missouri, Kansas, Oaklahoma, Georgia, Alabama and Louisianna were all so terrible. mom said that this is the worst year for death and destruction in YEARS. I guess you get to enjoy near perfect weather most of the time but have to worry during Hurricane Season. My skinbrother lives in Tampa and my skinsister lives in Jacksonville. Mom told me that they must have gotten tired of Michigan's winters while they were growing up! Mom likes the four distinct seasons. Who is the artist? Your Mom? They are very well done. AV4U! BIG KISSES, JADE.
