  Hi Miss Sugar!
It seems things are settling down around here since Mom last talked with Nanny & Aunt Kaylene. Mom has stopped rushing around & she hasn’t been packing her suitcase anymore. Once again, the wonderful scents & aromas have been wafting through the house, making me hungry! Mom has made a pumpkin pie & she tried a new recipe for Pumpkin Butterscotch Cake. It made a big pound cake & I asked to “try” until I was blue in the face & still Mom ignored my pleas! Hmphf! I’m hurt by her stinginess!

Since Mom has calmed down, I have been receiving my veggie & fruit portions with some nice toppings on them again. She has this “thing” that I like & it smells really good but one disturbing “thing” about it, is that it looks like a ninja death star!! Now, it does have these seeds in it that smell wonderful & taste better than they smell! I have decided to take those & keep them for later sharpening & using them for those asian throwing stars. I will have to practice because I can throw a knife fairly well but these…their weight distribution is much different than a heavy knife. It will take some getting used to for sure! Mom has been telling me the name of this treat is “anise” & I will repeat to her, “NICE” & bob my head up & down to show her I understand & that I like it very much. She doesn’t know I’m storing the stars in my corner piñata where I stuff all my “secret stuff” inside there! These will be housed there for later!

Lately, I’ve been exercising & toughening up for the football game Saturday! I have been running, sit-ups, chin-ups, & weight pressing using CocoPuff. She gets a little bit sick from the up & down motion but she’s been a real sport about it. I also have been running the tire course & keep messing up with my left side of my left foot, those nails grow faster than all the rest & make me stumble. I will have to show Mom my predicament so she can file them down for me. It will be a greyt time getting to play with everybirdy Saturday. Hope you have a greyt Thanksgiving Day! Give a hug to your good Momma for me! She working 8 days in a row, during the highest shopping days of the year, that is performance above & beyond the call of duty!! We will be missing you if you are gone that long!! Hugs, SamIAm

  Hi Sugar,

How are you, Girlfriend? It's Oz. So are you all ready for Thanksgiving or did you have yours already because of your Mom, Dad & Brother working? IF you did, I hope it was delicious as I'm sure it was. Mom is going to one of her Brother's & Sister In Law & Family. Her Sister In Law is an excellent cook but Mom said she wishes she wasn't cause she eats "Too" much LOL. She's taking her Parents and I think she said they are eating around 3:00 which is good. My Mommy hates to eat late LOL. Okay, Happy Thanksgiving to You, your Mommy and Family. Here's a vote for you, cutie. Bye for now.

Love & Winghugs,
Oz (Your Pink Friend)

  Hi Sugar
It sounds like the ham was good, and I'm sure the turkey will also be outstanding.
That does sound like the owner needs training, not the dog. Dogs are good learners and eager to please, for the most part.
Daisy surprised mom with how well she did in class last night. She picked up things easily and practiced with mom and never tired out. The clicker training works!
BC is running so slow!
We all want to wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving in case we don't get online tomorrow. Mom is cooking and the bird is big, so we have to get up early to supervise.
It was supposed to flurry today, but it's been snowing since 9AM. There's no sign of a let up either. We are hoping everyone who is traveling this holiday gets to a destination safely.
Mom got her nails done this morning, and got her new driver's license. She kept looking outside while she was at the nail salon, hoping that the snow would stop, but no such luck.
Now that she's home, once she's done serving as our typist, she will bake pies, get the cranberry sauce ready, and do other little things so tomorrow goes smoothly. We are only having 10 people here, but it's still a chore to make sure all goes well. I hope you are having a good day, getting to taste test, or at least supervise, all the cooking that's going on. Make sure to get lots of scritches and cuddles today, too. Hugs, Falco

  and the cocoa is just so good on such a cold night!The two of them both laugh at the funny goofy story.They just love the shocking look on the knights face when he realizes the log is actually the dragons finger!
Sugar cleans up from their snack and gets Dixie's legs up on the Hello Kitty Pillow and massages his legs and Dixie tells Sugar that the traffic and the lines in the stores when Mom and Nana were out were getting really bad and there was so much traffic on the roads and in the parking lots,people were just all over the place!Usually when Mom and Nana go into the grocery stores there's not a soul around and you can hear a pin drop!Ian is so awesome to be buying the fruit for his fruit salad and to be making it up also to bring to the pot luck for work for Thanksgiving!Dixie tells Sugar that his Mom just can't wait to stay home tomorrow and she's glad that she and Nana finished up their shopping today!
Before long the friends are yawning and stretching their wings and know its time for bed!Dixie gives Sugar a kiss good night and cuddles under her wing.They say their prayers and add a special one for Mario and a special prayer just for Nana.Dixie has his own special prayers for Sugar!He thanks the Lord each and everyday for having Sugar as his warm wonderful loving friend and he can't ever imagine his life without her in it!He knows just how blessed he is for being able to be with Sugar every day!Sugar means the world to him,and she can put a smile on his beak every time!He loves her soo sooo very much!Sleep tight and sweet dreams,Bird Of My Heart!

watches as Sugar tip toes quietly down the hall and as she peers around the corner she notices Dixie waiting for her by the birdroom door!A smile spreads across her beak as she waddles into the bird room throwing her wings around Dixie and holding him tightly telling him just how very happy she is to be here with him tonight!Dixie holds Sugar tight and hugs her close and tells her how happy he is that she is here with him!The hours and the minutes just seem to drag by for him,he just couldn't wait for this time to finally come so he could be with Sugar!
Poor Aunt Eileen having to do all that work for Mandy and then having to work at work and then at home too!Mom and I sure do hope she gets a chance to relax and take it easy!Dixie tells Sugar that as soon as his Mom got done with dinner and putting everything away from grocery shopping and all their cages cleaned and them all fed,he got to snuggle with her under his blanket,Mom has to sew the edges of his blanket together as he keeps falling out off it whenever Mom moves too quickly,his toes just don't want to grasp anything anymore!
Dixie and Sugar waddle on over to the platform and snuggle close together!Dixie takes the Hello Kitty Lunch Box from Sugar and upon opening it he discovers pumpkin muffins with pumpkin seeds on top inside! Sugar pours them each mugs filled with hot cocoa with cream as he places the muffins on napkins for them!They begin nibbling on the muffins and taking sips from their cocoa as Sugar begins reading the story she brought for them tonight!
The story is called The Kiss That Missed! Once upon a Tuesday the king was in a very big hurry and he's always in a very big hurry!The king blows a kiss to his son instead of going to the princes room in person to kiss him goodnight!The kiss bounces all around the room and then flies right out the window!Crying,the prince tells the queen what just happened so she tells the king who orders his knight to go to the forest and capture the kiss!The knight and his trusty horse go out into the dark,scary forest to find the kiss!There are bears who growl at them,owls are swooping down on them and a pack of hungry wolves are after them also!It is so scary for the knight and his horse!All of a sudden the glittery kiss flies by,and it kisses the bears,the owls and the wolves!All with smiles,settle down for the night!The knight and his horse sit on a wobbly log and start to figure out how they will catch that kiss!The logs are beginning to rise up into the air and soon the knight and his horse are face to face with a big dragon!The kiss,fluttering by once again,kisses the dragon!The dragon wishes to kiss the knight and his horse good night and then the dragon takes them back to the castle!Finally catching the kiss they send it back into the castle!When all of this is done the king promises that he'll not be always in a hurry!Sitting down he reads a story to the prince and then gives him a kiss goodnight!

We egspect a major snow storm today. The parronts have begun stocking the pantry, etc for the past few weeks because mom doesn't want to be toting can goods, etc in the ice and snow. Dad made a special photo disc of the cruise highlights for Cappy's parronts. Mom said she saw so many of our zon relatives. She will have to post the pics on Google so everybirdy can enjoy them. So on the eve of the turkey's day, I want to say how grateful we are for you being our family and your dear sweet mamma for all she does for our birdie community, giving it such love and delight!

  Hi sugar
I'm standing here before you, because I'm not behind you.

I know you've all heard it before, but I just had to let you know that our second favorite bird show is this Sunday, over in Plant City, also known as the Strawberry Capital of the world.

This is the show that's held outdoors, under a gazillion old oak trees on 4-5 acres. Out in the middle of no where. But it is by far well worth the drive, and we know good stuff will be coming our way. Mom said it's time for a new cage for me, so I might get a BIG present. Then we have to wait until January for our next show over in Orlando, near Goofy World.

Come visit me, JeTTa.

Wishing you, your mom and family a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING. That ham and turkey sounds yummy to me. I sure wish your mom didn't have to work this week :(
The BC was mean to keep us away from our dear friends ...grrrr.
I'm going to help my mom do some baking on Wednesday. I'm sure she will want my help.
This morning I woke to see the winter wonderland. Everything was white with lots of snow for dad to plow again ... hehehe. We got another 9 inches over night. Along with the cold, we will have daily snow starting on Thanksgiving morning. I have 2 new snow pics up for those who like it. I think I'll just go back to my perch for the day under the extra blankets.

  Good Evening, Miss Sugar!
Well, Mom has been running around to & fro cleaning, cooking, doing laundry (in case she were to have to leave), trying to catch her breath, & then starts it all over again!

She has been in touch with her Mom & sister every evening. Nanny is still very weak & frustrated with all of the stupid things that can happen at hospitals & with doctors, etc. The stress test that was suppose to happen Monday, well, when Nanny didn’t stay for the weekend, just laying there to start her tests on Monday, she thought about that after they stabilized her, & decided she could wait much easier at home than being woke up every 2 hrs. for a blood pressure check & temperature reading. The staff (or doctor? we don’t know) decided since she went home, they canceled ALL HER TESTS!! But they neglected to tell either Nanny nor Aunt Kaylene that they had done so! Yep. This past Monday, they drove all the way to downtown Huntsville just to find out there were no orders & that she wasn’t on the list for Monday, or through the entire week for any tests at all! Aunt Kaylene had been trying to get Nanny into her main physician & when she told them the situation, they scheduled them an appointment for next Monday. I’m getting the feeling that Alabama’s healthcare system really blows for geriatric care.

Nanny is doing alright, so far. Aunt Kaylene has a wheelchair & has been using it with Nanny. I bet both of them are very glad that Aunt Kaylene has had their home re-designed for easy wheel-chair access. Also, she had one of their bathrooms redesigned with a walk in bathtub. This has been really useful for Nanny, now, not just for Aunt Kaylene. For those of you who don’t know, Aunt Kaylene was in an accident that turned very complicated & the injury wouldn’t heal right & she lost her right leg to amputation. They had to do that to save her life. That is the main reason Mom goes over there a month to 6 wks. at a time because she has worked hard helping them in that ordeal. She has her own room there, too!

We so appreciate all your prayers for Mom’s family & also Mom. It has been a strange ordeal & hasn’t gone the way Mom thinks is any where near “normal” to say the least! Mom is hoping nothing is damaged with Nanny’s heart due to the delay this is turning out to be. Her heart history has been 2 angioplasty procedures done. The first one they implanted a stent inside one of her main arteries. Then 20 years later, she had another heart episode, & the stent needed replacing. That was about 4 or 5 yrs. ago. So, there is cause for concern when she starts having pain in her chest. She didn’t think the cardiologist recognized that he had operated on her before. Probably not since she didn’t need to see him all that often. Once she had those procedures done, she was off & running. All the family is concerned about her & are giving their time to be with her.

We are so thankful for all our friends. You are all the best that there is! Hugs, SamI

...we re running a little behind today, our net was acting up earlier, and dad is doing a lot of prep work for our Holiday dinner, smells good here already! We are just having cold, but not so unusual for this time of the year! We hope the illiterate folks in Furguson are happy with all their looting and violence, they must have needed an excuse to get more booze & new things! We have a thought on all that, but perhaps not so appropriate for our beloved BC! Dad is prepping our turkey in the final thaw, chopped onions, celery, Emeril Lagasse turkey rub, onion & garlic powder, butter, and lots of love, a lot of work, but for dad a labor of love, don't tell his heart doctor, LOL! Have a great day dear friends, and give our love to our dear aunt Auda, and all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

  Hi Sugar
Poor Mandy, but at least she's using the pads now. Tell mom to remember, there are always doggy diapers for when she gets too incontinent to hold it in. We know you love her, mom has been through that with 3 dogs now, and she is always willing to do it because we love all our babies, even the furry ones.
Mom had fun at the wildlife center yesterday, she did the RVS animals again, which means she fed the bats. She loves doing that, they think they are so fierce, baring their teeth at her! She also did the raccoons outside, as well as the raccoon and ground hog inside.
Today we are going to make cornbread for the stuffing. I hope we all get a sample. If mom has the ambition, she will bake the pies, but she would prefer to wait until tomorrow so they will be fresher. Mom's daughter ordered a fresh local turkey which she will pick up after work and drop here on her way home.
Mom does have an errand today: she needs a 6 foot lead for Daisy's class tonight. She got the mat, the treats are ready, the clicker is in her pocket, but she doesn't have a small 6' leash. The one she has is really thick, too big for that little dog. I only hope she is able to teach that dog some manners! Mom has done her homework all week, so maybe there's a chance this dog will be better by the end of class.
I hope you are all having a good day. Don't forget to come by the Lakers page today to celebrate Thanksgiving with our team! Hugs, Falco

Nobody could get on BC on Sunday night! When we got on yesterday it was working, though. We love your jukebox picture!
We love story time, and you know, we can come even if BC is down. The Rainbow net still works. It's awful that your mom has another 8 day stretch. We think when that happens, she should get 3 days off. Mom knew a nurse once that used to work 14 days in a row and get a week off, but she hated it because she said she never felt like she was doing her best in the second part of the shift.
We will see you tonight for story time, till then, hugs and angel kisses, Divo and Gizmo

  Well Sugar
We're in a serious countdown mode. In just under a month, our favorite Aunt is coming to visit, and we so look forward to her arrival. She is so much fun, and I get to play on the floor with her. If I ever had to pick another Mom, it sure would be her.

Come visit me, JeTTa.

  Hi Sugar
yesterday was quite a day for us. it was mom and dads 37anniversary and they were actually going to leave the house and go out for dinner. dad asked mom to trim Boo Boo's beak because he said the top was way to long and she couldn't eat properly with it. so long. when mom took a look she saw that Boo Boo had somehow broken the bottom half of my beak off and my top beak was about 3/4 of an inch longer. she wrapped Boo Boo in a tea towel and got a good grip of my head and held her beak together and started filing away with the emery board. she moved fast because she doesn't want to hold her in that position for very long. at one point she noticed blood on her hand and thought maybe i had bitten her so she stopped to checked and make sure Boo Boo was ok . here Boo Boos top beak had started to bleed where she filed it down. you have to realize mom always is working on our beak and nails and so was very surprised to see what had happened in the first place and in order for Boo Boos beak to fit properly she had to file it down to the right length which made it bleed. when mom saw the blood she became ill and thought she was going to vomit. she grabbed some flour and dipped her beak in it. then she uses a cloth and wiped the blood off, then she dipped her beak in flour again. at this point we suspected mom was putting batter on Boo Boo to eat her for dinner. mom was so upset she told dad no way was she going out for dinner when Boo Boosbeak had been bleeding. what if it started bleeding again while they were gone. dad said ok and went out and brought dinner hone from a nice local italian restaurant. that night mom let Boo Boo chase a live cricket around and she did catch it and ate it all up. i was fairly upset that Boo Boo got so much attention. mom gave me a cashew to cheer me up. Boo Boo is still mad at mom but acting a little better and eating with her beak. mom says withBoo Boos beak so short she really look like a baby bird now.
mom also says i am looking better and better and my beak is looking better and better also. i am keeping my weight at 474 grams which is good for me. mom says my eyes also have a sparkle to them which she hasn't seen for a few years.

  Hi Sugar!
I hope you get some treats too! We got some snow yesterday and today too so it was rather yucky out. I don't mind as it is nice and cozy in here. We are all geared up for Christmas and mom has been busy making us some toys:) I am getting a loot this year:) I even got a few samples and have been enjoying them. I just love to chew up wood...well, almonds would be better, but I don't get to see them much anymore:( Hope you have a good evening:)

hugs,

  Hiya Shugs!
Shoo, I finally made it to your page. I had mom all ready t'sit down and type for me yesterday — I had her lemon water on the desk and her foot stool slid under her chair, (with only a few extra beak marks added to it) but then the BC decided not to let me sign in. Complete bummer.

You're right about there bein' some snow at my house, but it just fell t'day. It rained on Sunday which was the first time we've had any moisture from the sky in awhile. Today's snow doesn't amount t'much but everything IS white. It's rather pretty!

Bummer about your Mom and Ian having t'work on Thursday. That's just no good. It's a real shame making money is more important to a company than their employees having time t'gether as families. There's lots of grumbling in my house about Black Friday startin' on Thursday night...

No complaints from the McFlock members. We're all hangin' in there, findin' stuff t'do while we wait for spring. I know, it's gonna be a long wait.

Big ol' (((MACAW HUG))) for YOU!

  Hi Sugar
I am not getting outside for a sunbath today, even though it is just about warm enough. The problem is me! My mom was in my room drinking hot tea from her travel mug for a headache, and I decided I didn't like the mug....and I attacked her hand that was holding it. Yep, another nasty bite, and I am now in my room in time out. I know I have been bad, because I am being very quiet. Mom didn't really yell at me, but she did say Good-bye pretty loud and three times! Haven't seen her since except for lunch. I behaved then, so why am I still a bad boy?

I did get a sunbath yesterday, although since I couldn't blog (thanks a lot, BC) I couldn't tell anybirdy about it. Today is trash day with the big trucks coming around, so I might not have gone outside anyway. Those trucks really scare me. And it is pretty windy here even if it is 75 degrees out.

I may not be blogging tomorrow, because my mom has to drive her friend down to court for an appeal on a disability hearing. If she gets home in time though, I will still be able to blog. We shall see.

Don't forget to vote for Miss Ruby #35469, there are only a few more days to vote!

  Hi Sugar
We ho;pe mom got what she wanted and will be ready for tonight's story time. Some of the New England states have what is called Blue Laws, we don't know why. Anyway they are left from the early days of the colony. PA used to close everything down every Sunday, but it hasn't been like that for a lot of years now. Is she working on Thanksgiving day? Just curious. We'll see you tonight for story time. Hugs and angel kisses, Divo and Gizmo

  `Ü´ Greetings & A Lovely Monday to You
Miss Sugar!

I do hope that your Saturday and Sunday were full of fun and productivity. I know in my case I had to relinquish Momma’s eggsclusive attention and assistance on my Campaign to be your December Bird of the Month to more pressing parrontal matters around our K Kritter Korral. (The portion of Sunday during which Momma was available to bring me to your page for a visit, the BirdChannel was not cooperating. You might say that their GPS was out of order! **TeeHee**)

You see, Momma and Daddy were informed that they could eggspect a visit from my Grandma from Idaho from later today, to last thru Thursday morning when they all gather at Daddy’s youngest brother’s home about an hour away from us for the first Family Celebration with everyone present since Momma and Daddy have known each other. Grandma was eager to be able to spend time here with Momma and Daddy, and all of us fids of course, before joining the rest of the family for a concurrent Celebration of Thanksgiving and her BirthDay on Thursday! Then she will remain with my Uncle and his family until she returns to her home in Idaho later in the week, while my other Uncle comes to pay us a visit over the long weekend.

So, all of this is to say that my visits may be a bit sporadic from now thru the end of the month, due to Grandma’s visit, the Holiday weekend with my Uncle visiting, and the upcoming Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl Game. I do apologize in advance for any visits I shall have to forego. But rest assured that I shall continue to do my utmost to bring you the maximum amount of FootBall information in the time we have left together.

And on that note, let us get straight to the information I’ve promised you next about the Offensive Squad on a FootBall team …


Let’s begin our eggsamination of the individual Positions on the Offensive Squad.

QuarterBack – The Player who usually receives the ball from the Center at the start of each play. He informs his TeamMates in the huddle of the play that will be run and then, after the Center snaps* the ball to him, either hands the ball to a Running Back or throws to a Receiver.

Center – The Player who hikes (or snaps) the ball to the QuarterBack at the start of each play. The term comes from the fact that this Player is flanked on either side by a Guard and a Tackle; he’s the “MiddleMan” (or Center) in a contingent of five Offensive LineMen or Blockers. He handles the ball on every play and also snaps the ball to the Punter and Holder.

Guard – There are two Guards on every play, and they line up on either side of the Offensive Center. The Guards protect the QuarterBack from an Inside Rusher; they block Defenders immediately across from them and also swing out, or pull**, and run toward either end [of the line] to block any Defender when the ball carrier runs wide°.

Come visit me, `Ü´ Ruby Coaches the Offense.

11/24/2014 10:36.35 AM Report This Comment  
  Tackle – Both Offensive and Defensive, on Offense they are Outside Blockers on the line of scrimmage°°.

Tight End – Serves as a BIG Receiver [Oh MY!] and also a Blocker. Unlike a Wide Receiver, this Player generally lines up beside the Offensive Tackle either to the right or to the left of the QuarterBack. (Also “Strong Side+”)

Wide Receiver – The Player who uses his speed and quickness to elude Defenders and catch the FootBall, but who isn’t primarily a Blocker. Wide Receivers are also known as “pass catchers” [but I-I-I would parrotsonally NOT disparage one so!]. Also called a WideOut.

Running Back – A Player who runs with the FootBall. Running Backs are also referred to as TailBacks and HalfBacks, depending on their exact responsibilities and alignment.

FullBack – A Player who lines up in the Offensive backfield++ and generally is responsible for blocking for the Running Back and pass-blocking to protect the QuarterBack. FullBacks also serve as short-yardage runners.


I would also like to call your attention to a display of several of the basic Offensive Formations which appear in the Gallery at the bottom of my page. (They also appear in my Profile Picture at the top of my page; but they are much clearer and contain eggsplanatory text in the photos in the Gallery.) I hope these are of use to you in recognizing some of what happens on the actual field of play the next time you watch a FootBall Game.

I am also including several definitions of terms used in the above Position Descriptions at the end of this note.

Have a Greyt Day! Perhaps enjoy watching The Jets play The Bills at 7:00 pm on CBS, or The Ravens play at The Saints at 8:30 pm on ESPN. Both times are EST. Remember, it is virtually illegal to watch a FootBall Game quietly. So do what we Avians are most well-known for doing … **S*Q*U*A*W*K** . **I*T** . **U*P** ! ! !

À la prochen frois, mon amie,
[Until next time, My Featheriend]
`Ü´ Ruby Francesca Beongia ♥


*snap—the action in which the ball in handed or hiked by the Center to the QuarterBack, to the Holder on a kick attempt, or to the Punter.
**pull—when a player leaves one area of the field, generally moving back and then over, to block in an area other than his normal position.
°run wide
°°line of scrimmage—the imaginary boundary between the two teams prior to the snap of the ball. The Offense’s and Defense’s scrimmage lines are defined by the tip of the ball closest to them and stretch from sideline to sideline. The Defensive Team usually lines up less than a yard away from where the ball is placed.
+strong side—the side of the Offensive formation where the Tight End aligns. With a right-handed QuarterBack, the strong side is usually to his right side.
++backfield—the group of Offensive Players (the Running Backs and QuarterBack) who line up behind the line of scrimmage (vs the Offensive LineMen and/or Receivers who line up at the line of scrimmage).

  Hi Sugar
My big day is approaching very soon. In just a few days, it will be TWO years since I was found flying around in the great outdoors. Now I have to confine my flights to indoors, and do a dive bomb on pops when he plops in the recliner. I really think it's cool when I can do it, and he doesn't know I'm headed his way. So much fun to see him yell at me, hee hee hee. RT

  Hi Sugar
Mom and dad got to see alot of ZONS on their parrot lovers cruise. I guess mom was so wore out from their cruise that they needed a vacation from their vacation lol. We think the folks have finally caught up on their rest and chores. We have fun with the FID sitter but were very happy to see the folks when they got home. Mom even got home a day earlier than eggspected cause she missed us but we all wanted DADDY lol. Have a wonderful day. V4U. Hugs.
Love Rudy

PS: Now mom is into the Holiday spirit and so we should see some eggciting things from the kitchem :)

  Hi, Sugar
Fireplaces do have a wonderful ambiance whether one using logs or ones that are electric or gas powered. Guess they put out a bit of warmth too.

Uh, oh, when will people learn to drive a lil slower when roads are wet, icy or snowy? Not a good feeling to be spinning out of control and possibly hit something.

Hopefully that pantry is all organized again. Nothing worse than when something spills or leaks and don't see it right away and it spreads and makes a mess.

The parronts are doing the Thanksgiving meal on Tue to accomodate skinsis and mom's work schedules. The usual menu is planned so mom is prepping some things today and the rest tomorrow so things are ready to cook/bake on Tue after she gets home from work.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Sugar
It's Popeye.
Mom and dad were going to stay home all day, yesterday. Then mom got the idea of roasting some tomatoes and other veggies and making tomato soup. Dad had to go to Smart and Final for some veggies but he came right home. Then they both left for some big sale at mom's favorite jewelry store. She said that she wasn't going to buy anything. WRONG!! We all noticed new earrings on her ears. Good thing we don't sit on her shoulders cuz we'd have them all chewed up in no time. They brought Subway sandwiches home for dinner. We did get to sample some of them. YUM!
Today will be clear, with a high of 75 and a low of 53. No telling what mom and dad will be doing today.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye
