  Hi sweet Derby Hat Falco-from Jenny Lynn
...aunt Arlene sure does like her opera type plays and music, our dadd is to dumb to understand them! Once again dad has a doctor appointment at our VA medical clinic, that just cuts the heart out of our day! He will be waiting around a lot to be called into the various specialty rooms, certainly not much fun, but a necessary evil, none the less! We are having another gloomy overcast day with more rain coming, when will it ever end! Our day will be filled with boring stuff, but aunt Denise always entertains us, she is so sweet! Have a great Monday dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Monday love from Jenny, Ms LaLo, Angel Christy, & our crippled daddy

  Hi, Falco
Okay, if only thick as a hooman hair then that is very tiny and easy to see why would get clogged. Is there a special pipe cleaning thingy to push inside to get to cleared? Have lil brushes for cleaning out the straws on the toddler cups.

That's too bad the sets/background weren't the best but would imagine the music and singing are the most important part so glad that was enjoyable. Thanks for the review.

Know that anything to do with dinos will be popular.

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

  hi pretty girl
Hopefully, despite the cold rain here, life will return to normal now that mom's drama club is done till November . . . Yesterday I squawked for an early night-night since it was so dark and dismal - that was OK though, since I think mom was ready too ! She and dad did pick up my peas and string beans earlier, and some more calculator paper for my art projects, so I'll be ready for today.

Daddy is home today to help g'ma look for a new car. G'pa has a Forester and it's just too big for her to drive (she's about 4'10") She's worried that after g'pa's procedure she'll be too dependent on daddy . . .

The opera sounds like it was fun - mom enjoys playful music too ! Have a great day - love Cookie

Those were the same posters that were in the mailing tube ... LOL! Dad saw them again and picked them up for your mom. At least the second try ... they made it to PA! As for the Venice wildlife center ... they do not allow any visitors. But, if you need them, just call and they will get someone to pick up the injured animal. Glad your mom liked the box and everything made it ok. Which color tee did she choose?
So the modern opera wasn't too bad, that's good. My mom's first movie was when she was 5 years old. It was a movie version of Kiss Me Kate. Gram even bought her the album as she loved the singing so much.
It was a very eggciting Sunday for me. My Cardinal friend came right up to the screen door to talk with me. Mom & I spoke back to him and he kept talking. I told him to visit anytime.
Hope you had a greyt weekend too.

Glad mom enjoyed the opera!!
I knew mom didn’t get those feathers cut short enough! Yep she went today and flew off. After she got us all breakfast (her, dad and me) and my bean mix made and a bowl of fruit made in the frig for dad to give me she went to pick up the one grand and then to skin sis and picked her and that grand up and they went shopping. The one grand is going to the 8th grade farewell event but the other grand doesn’t want to go. Really neither wants to get all dressed up to go but some friends are talking the grand into going so she needed a dress for the occasion. The grands pitching coach is getting married in October so imagine the grand will wear it then too. Mom got dad a couple pair of jeans there since mom can usually find his size there in the brand he likes. I was glad that dad was home with me and yep I got that bowl of fruit in the afternoon. I was glad when I heard mom pull in the garage though!! “A memory last forever never does it die. True friends stay together and never say goodbye.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

We all act like brats when the parronts are away. Our birdsitter specifically asks mom for no paper on top of grates because we try to bite her when she reaches in to remove it. I laid another egg and pushed it to front of my condo for mom to see. She took me out and said no more eggs, lady! I do not bother with the brood patch. I saw what Samantha did to herself and no way! Mom's cornea was very friable from over a decade of steroidal eye drops and the doc had to do a double row of sutures around the periphery to hold it. And now over 2 years later mom still has the double row in there. When Dr Laura is confident, she will remove them. Glad yoour mom is home and you got the hot water back. love and winghugs, cuBird

  Hi Falco
So was the opera dissonant? Although my mom likes the Firebird and Rites of Spring, she is not sure she would enjoy dissonant vocal music. Having the scenery look like Hobeck woodcuts is so very clever!

Well, Mom abandoned me right after breakfast to go put gas in Gloria before the cheap station got too busy. And then she went grocery shopping with Dad, but I forgive her for that since she brings home my sugar snap peas, nanners and grapes. However she also brought home a salad for lunch, and although she expected me to enjoy sharing it since it had corn and beans (Southwestern style chicken salad), I was not really impressed. Amazingly I did eat a tiny piece of lettuce, but the second one I picked up ended up on Mom's shoulder.

And although it is warm enough for a sunbath today, Dad suggested Mom wait one more day before sitting out in the sun to make sure the antibiotic is out of her system completely. A sunburn right now would not be fun, eggspecially since she is pretty sure she will be good to go for the gym tomorrow (no zumba yet, though). I wouldn't cooperate about getting into my carrier anyway, so Mom took that as a sign that a sunbath was not a good idea today.

BooBoo had a greyt idea: since we do not have a candidate for BOTM this month, why don't we all vote for Laka again so she can get her BOTM plaque from BC. In case you didn't know, apparently BC has started doing that again, and Grey Bird actually received his plaque. Laka and Kacey & Mikey should deserve the same recognition.

  Hello Falco~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! The bird on the calendar page picture is a lilac-breasted roller. They are from Africa. We picked a bird for each month so when we saved the pictures we put down what they were. Mom knew she would never remember it.
We did see a few pictures from other productions and Nick Shadow was dressed in black. I suppose he has to look slick since he is a smooth operator! Glad your mom liked it. We thought the story was good.
Glad they got to get Thai food too. We know your mom really enjoys that.
The dinosaur tour sounds like it was fun also. I suppose there are more people coming now that Spring is here. There will be tons more by the time Summer gets here!
Can't believe it's already May! Time seems to be moving along quickly this year!
Dad called yesterday and he ran into snow in Nebraska! It wasn't a lot but he was a bit shocked to see snow on the last day of April. He has a trailer full of books going back to a publisher in Indiana.
Mom is having a horrible time staying awake today! She is just worn out and wants to get to bed!!! Boring! Luckily Jennifer is out here reading her Kindle so she can keep me company while boring mom gets ready for bed!
Please give the boys my love! Already stomped out a vote!
Enjoy the day!

It's Popeye.
Dad finally worked on the front lawn and at least part of it looks better. He's going to try to get more done today. Not sure how much because their friends from Colorado will be here today. Not sure how much we'll be on the BC this next week. It depends on how busy mom and dad are with their friends.
Mom made homemade gumbo last night. Sure did smell good but dad said we couldn't have any because it was too spicy for us. Hey, we like spicy!
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 76 and a low of 53.
Hope your day was fun.

  Hi, Falco
Can barely see that turtleneck collar of yours. Guess if have to have one that at least seems minimally invasive. The cones see furballs stuck with are really big. Hopefully your chest feathers return fully. Imagine if got it wet it might not dry all the way and certainly wouldn't want wetness against your skin/feathers.

Temps weren't too bad yesterday but it felt hot inside mom's work as the a/c doesn't work that well. Sure hope it gets fixed better before summer arrives.

Our mom isn't an opera fan but hope your mom and niece enjoyed that one by Stravinsky. Have heard of that name before.

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

  hey miss Falco
Rain here in NY today . . . but that's OK, cause there's not a lot going on. Mom is recovering from last night. The show went really well - only one little actor missed a line, and it wasn't an important one. The cast party was LOUD. She was even able to eat a slice of pizza ! ! Thank goodness in junior high there's only one performance unlike high schools which do two full weekends. Don't think she could do that ! Me either - I do love my daddy, but he's not a very good tucker inner and mom had to fix my blankee when she got home about half past midnight.

She will go out later to get me my fresh veggies - yesterday she got hers and daddy's foods. I'll try to be a good boy and let her rest . . . have a great day - we can't wait to hear about the opera ! Mom says she hasn't heard of it - she's going to ask g'ma (who sings opera - she was a vocal major in college) love Cookie

Well, I think it's fashion statement! You can always add flower pin or something else to it. I'm glad you liked the feather I sent you. It's just until all the feathers are grown in again. Hope the cover works for you. Bailey would be so pleased that you have it.
My mom liked the colors too for the t's. They also had white in the one size but it was pretty blah.
OK, I knew you had to have a system to keep track of who's who at the Center.
Hope the opera was fun.
I enjoyed a breakfast of scrambled eggs and oj. Then it was beach/ocean day for the parronts. After they came home, we enjoyed the pool and lanai. Tomorrow starts Kentucky Derby Week ... so eggciting!

I HOPE YOUR CHEST FEATHERS START GROWING BACK AND SOON. BUT IF IT GETS HOT, THEN MAYBE YOU WILL BE COOLER AS YOU ARE. DOES THE VET KNOW WHY YOU PULLED OUT YOUR CHEST FEATHERS? YOUR LEG LOOKS GOOD THOUGH.

Collar or no collar your still a beautiful lady!! Its good to share on BC since we all have some problems usually and now we know what the collar looks like too. I know you will be happy to have it off though.

Today mom was home all day though she was downstairs cleaning a little bit so I had to be in my condo then. Maybe this feather trim is keeping her home now.
After she got her feather trim yesterday all her curls were gone so she had to give herself another perm when she got home. When mom does that she hides out in the back room till she is done because she doesn’t want me around the stinky stuff. Good it don’t take her long though and a double good cause dad was home so I could be out of the condo at least.
I did get my bath today and mom blow dried me cause it was a little chilly and she don’t want me getting chilled. I am still fixing my feathers and picking out all those little white fuzzies too.
Mom got her duplicate drivers license today in the mail so she will put those back and use her original ones though. She has to get new ones next year for her birthday present anyway LOL. “A memory last forever never does it die. True friends stay together and never say goodbye.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Mom did not know Stravinsky wrote any operas, and she is wondering what it will be like since his music was so dissonant at times. Would like a report from your mom and review, please. We trust her taste and judgment.

Well, Mom took her last antibiotic today, and the cough is almost gone. Hopefully by the time she tries the gym again on Monday, it will actually work. She is feeling a lot better.

Mom abandoned me this morning to go to the bank with Dad and deposit her two tax checks, plus he had his tax checks and a couple of reimbursements from insurance. Since she was not gone very long, I did forgive her.

Fortunately for me Mom is rereading one of her favorite book series, and since she is just on book one of four I am getting lots of Mom time. Plus we shared a half sandwich of warm pastrami and provolone on sourdough for lunch. I really do love pastrami, probably the best of all the meats I get to share with my mom. She is pretty fond of it too, but we both get enough. Then we shared a tapioca pudding cup for dessert! Now that is definitely high on my list of favorite treats. Love that stuff!!

  Hello Falco~
I hope you are having a fabulous day! I think it's good that mom put your pictures up there. So many birds have the same problem and there are a lot of the parronts who don't know about what troubles hormones can cause us! I think it looks like you are healing and I bet all your feathers will be back before you know it! I still think you have a very cute belly!
We looked up Rake's Progress since we have never heard of it either. It sounds like it's going to be a very exciting opera! I hope your mom really likes it.
No construction last night. Guess there is just too much traffic on Friday nights and they didn't want to deal with it. They won't be there tonight but I'm not sure about Sunday night since they didn't work last night. I don't think it will be more than a week before it's all done.
It's amazing to think of that many baby animals needing help. Is it mostly because of humans not sharing the space with animals? I suppose getting hit by cars is a big problem. At least the babies will be taken care of and have a chance at a normal life! Your mom is just awesome to help them! We really do need more women like her in this world!
You all enjoy the day!!

Hmm, I think I'd pull feathers around that collar. Mom's vet told her not to let me bath or shower when I had a collar like that one--it would irritate the skin underneath.
(We have the traditional mouse trap--it will kill. Mom just doesn't like to, the mice remind her of pets)
How was the Stravinsky? What mom has heard she likes.
Today was mom leaving at 6:45 am for church, coming home around 9 am to collect skinsis for grocery shopping. They were home by 11:15--3 stores! Not bad. Don't know if in all those bags there were any TREATS.

How are you, Girlfriend? It's Cheyenne. Mommy said she's bad when she goes to the Stores hungry too LOL. Actually, yesterday she went to Dollar General, Aldi's & the Acme and she bought more goodies then she should have LOL!

Mom says to Thank your Mom for complimenting her on her room. She normally is a pastel person but she wanted something different & bright & the Turquoise did it LOL! But she really does love it & can't wait till the Window Treatments are here! Aunt Shirl's new Dishwasher will be here & installed on Monday. Next week Mom is hoping to go with her to pick out the Granite for her Counters, then the Back Spash, Floor & of course the Kitchen needs to be painted. Hoping but don't think it will be ready by Memorial Day! She might have the Counter Tops in but she has to see when her Contractor can finish it! Mom says and you know how that can go! After the Kitchen is finished Aunt Shirl wants to finally get new rugs through out the house, it's been almost 30 yrs! She would have loved to have her hardwood floors done but it would be too much work plus she would have to board us out & the Cats would have to live in a bedroom for up to a week till they would be all done so she decided against it! When Aunt Shirl & Uncle Don first had this house built, they had the light hardwood floors with hook rugs! But then she decided to get wall to wall rugs so she's just going to stick to them!

I hope you're having a nice weekend with your Mom & Flock. My Mom will actually be home ALL weekend for a change! But not May cause she has way too much going up! By the time she paid all her bills and filled all of May's cards, she's almost broke! Glad we have plenty of food left LOL!! Plus she gets something for watching her Niece, Hope so that's her spend & gas money! Okay, here's a vote for you, Falco. Bye for now.

It's Popeye.
Guess what? It rained last night. Dad never saw it coming. We got a "soaking" 0.03 inches. Dad never made it out to mow the front yard yesterday and today it's too wet to mow. Their friends will be in tomorrow so dad may try to get it all done in one day. Yeah, RIGHT!
Mom sent dad back to Costco yesterday. The coupons expire today and mom wanted things. Well, so did everybody else in La Habra and dad swears they were all at Costco. It took dad almost 2 hours to get the stuff and get home and he was not a happy shopper. But mom was starting to fix a pork butt roast with roasted veggies so dad mellowed out real fast. It's one of his favorites.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 71 and a low of 50. Maybe it will rain some more.
QUESTION:
If mom was cooking a pork butt roast, does that mean that there is a hog running around somewhere that can't sit down?
Hope your day is fun.

That is wonderful that only need the laser treatment in one eye. Hopefully never do need it in the other and that the treated one heals quickly. Always have to be careful with using mapquest or GPS directions when going to new places. At least it got you to the general area.

I hope your feathers come back real soon ! How long did the vet say it should take ?

What a lovely afternoon yesterday ! Mom came straight home from school plopped down on the sofa and skritched my head :) When I started squawking, she brought me my bath tub and we both got soaked before settling down for a nice long talk and the singing of some songs :) Daddy made burritos for dinner so mom didn't even have to leave me to fix dinner ! ! Then I got apple for dessert ! ! Life is good !

It'll be even better after the weekend of drama club ! This morning she and dad will do some grocery shopping before she heads back to school to start getting everything ready. I'll bet she'll even try to take a nap - cause it'll be a mighty late night ! Cast party till midnight ! Two adults with 47 young teens (6-8 grade) ! Pretty scary !

Well, you have a great Saturday ! See you tomorrow :) love Cookie

The post office says the package should arrive on Saturday, it better says mom!!! Or, she wants her $ back! Let me know if everything arrives ok.
Happy that the eye appointment went well. How is your mom's eye now?
Mom saw her new doc today and likes her. But now, she has to see 2 other docs with 2 different "C" appointments. They will call mom in a week.
How do they keep track of the animals at the Center for the records ... are they wearing #'s or tags? I think possums are cuties (except for the tail ... it should be furry)
Not much going on here. It was another sunny day of 91 and still no rain. I was busy chewing up some wood toys and I'm proud of the artistic design on the floor. It looks greyt to me.
Mom was outside watering the plants and someone came up to her ... it was Bunni. He just watched her and walked along with her for a while. I guess I should tell him that I do the supervising around here, it's my job.

  Hi Falco
moms eye is feeling better and just a little itchy . her side really hurts but that should go away. mom waited for dad, at the eye doctors, for 3 hours. she finished a book and then dad came out and said the doctor said his eye was much better and dad was very relieved. it was good mom was forced to sit there since she couldn't get into anymore accidents while reading. mom came home and then slept and slept some more and is feeling more rested. today she bought 3 yellow twig dogwoods to plant. they re good for -40F and don't require much sun.

Bad Paddy Cake was at it again and landed on top of the curtains in the bedroom and took off with the silk poop protector mom made to cover the curtains. its about 12 feet long and when i saw that thing dropping down to the carpet I panicked and ran into my cat carrier for safety and wouldn't come out until mom had it draped over the top of the curtains again.

Boo Boo saw it falling first and had already hoped to the other end of the bedroom before i even knew what was happening.

HAPPY TGIF DAY

Love Cori

  Hi Falco
Glad your moms laser procedure went well and only needs one eye done too!
Today was another cool cloudy day here in the burg. At least it was as cold and dreary as it was yesterday. Mom did a few things around here this morning and then she got ready to go for a much needed hair cut. I usually get a bath on Friday but mom said it was a bit too cold today so maybe tomorrow I will get one. Mom said she will blow dry me if its still cold. I miss my sun baths though and they sure help my feathers a lot. I start looking pretty bad by the end of winter cause I like to chew off my feathers. I just take the tips of the feather off and leave some and mom says I feel like a porcupine . There are some new ones coming in now and I am not chewing them off as much now either. I wonder if this hair cut will keep mom from flying away so much!! “A memory last forever never does it die. True friends stay together and never say goodbye.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Miss Falco
I was fortunate today. Even tho' mom left me, she was not gone a long time--tomorrow will be different. Skinsis wants to go to lots of stores, *sigh*
A mouse has been using UNDER my cage floor as a bathroom. Dad has been setting a trap after we are in our cages. Mom is hoping dad traps it, but mom does not like killing things, still she is not happy seeing droppings right under my cage.
would you believe mom FORGOT to make us a dinner treat? Now sure whats up with that!

  Hello Falco~
I hope you are having a lovely day! Your belly is so cute!! The turtle neck doesn't look too bad. I know you hate it but I bet it won't be long before you get to take it off for good.
I love the group picture! Who did that one! We look like we are having fun!
Pretty quite day around here which is great after yesterday. The gardeners were here early and they planted all new plants out front. There are some lovely yellow mums! Mom went over to pay the rent and grab the mail and she says it smells really bad! Bark mulch. Mom hates that smell! Luckily it doesn't smell in the house! All I can smell now is the chili mom made. She cooked a big pot of pinto beans yesterday and used some of them for chili. The other will be made into refried beans.
It was raining this morning so the gardeners did not start mowing until 2 pm. They have done the front and are in the back now. They have already come by with the blower thingy so it should be quiet until the construction guys show up around 9 pm. They have not even started our side of the street so I guess we are next! At least they don't work on Saturday or Sunday so it will be quiet then. Mom has been leaving the radio on so it helps cover the sound of the beeping trucks!
Glad your mom only needed the laser treatment in one eye. Can't wait to see how well it worked! I think your mom will be surprised! They have come so far with laser treatments for the eyes now.
That is funny about the feeding tube. I bet your mom did not like possum milk all over the though! It sounds like the number of babies there is picking up. I know they are all going to thrive and be ready to go outside in no time!
Enjoy the evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Falco
Where do they get possum milk? Mom had a kitten years ago that was only 4 weeks old, and she bought kitten milk at the pet food store and a kitten bottle. That kitty was so bonded to Mom! Guess she thought Mom was her actual mother. So your mom is a possum mom?

Mom took another shot at the gym this morning, but Becky met her at the door and said she wanted her to do 5 minutes on the tread mill at walking pace and no incline. If she could manage that, then they would work out. Well, Mom had to sit down at the end of the 5 minutes, so Becky said no way! She also suggested Mom stop at Starbuck's on the way home and get what she called "Sick Tea". It is supposed to help with the kind of thing that is kicking Mom's tail feathers: green tea, mint, steamed lemonade and honey. Mom drank it all, but then she felt kind of queasy and laid down for an hour. Guess it is not for her.

Then we shared half a roast beef and provolone sandwich for lunch. I must admit I prefer the sandwich to the wrap, because Mom doesn't put that nasty spinach on there. I do like me some RB!

Then Mom went to the library to get the books she had reserved. She stopped at Trader Joe's on the way home to stock up on my raw almonds and cashews. Plus she got pecan pieces so that means cookies are in our future! Yay!

Don't forget to vote in the Derby Hat Contest on milonga page #165848. Both ladies and gents are too close to call right now!

  Hi, Falco
That is good that your boo boo is healing and no more meds. Guess that collar is just a precaution so everything heals fully and good to have the follow up appointment already. Wow, what a difference to get home in half the time.

Some furballs love rain. Guess a walk is a walk to them no matter the weather.

Hopefully the eyes are okay and that both eyes got treated.

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

  hey miss Falco
Hooray for Friday ! Mom and co-coach decided that today - no rehearsal - just practice curtain calls. That means she'll be home before 4:00 ! I think I heard daddy say something about burritos - they're soft, so mom just hopes they won't be too spicy (even though that's the way she loves them !) and irritate her mouth.

I've been busy dragging my measuring cups and paper towel rolls from my gym into my cage and then standing guard over them - I do love my heaps !

Tomorrow, no visiting with the g'parronts - that'll wait till Sunday, so that means I'll have to wait for my veggies too . . . although it looks like the garden shop down the road is getting ready to open - the owner is a bird lover and always sends something yummy home for me !

I'm so happy that you're healing well and I hope that for next week's visit, you'll be able to take off your collar . . . Have a wonderful TGIF ! love Cookie

I just knew that your vet would be so happy with your progress. Did she say how long for feathers to come in? Glad your leg is doing greyt. So, the designer collar is still on. Maybe you could put an applique flower on it.
Well, if the doggies don't want the rain, send it to us ... we need it.
I hope everything goes smoothly for your mom's laser thingy on her eyes. Yes, doing both and getting it over would be good .... if someone could drive her. Keep us posted on both of you.
My mom is going tomorrow to her new doctor. She is nervous ... doesn't like new things ... wonder what she will be scheduled for???
The package was mailed today. It should be at your house on Saturday.
It was just another lovely sunny day of 91. Still no rain. Not much going on here. Mom went to the post office and dad worked on his truck ... boring! I chewed up some big blocks of wood. Now that is more interesting! I wish mom would leave my artwork alone!

HEY FALCO, THAT IS GREAT NEWS ABOUT YOUR LEG AND CHEST. I GUESS THE VET DOESN'T WANT YOU TO PICK OFF TEH SCAB ON YORU LEG SO YOU MUST WEAR THE COLLAR A BIT LONGER. SO GLAD THAT YOU ARE ON THE MEND AND THAT YOU ARE ALSO DONE WITH THE MEDS.

THAT IS FUNNY ABOUT THE DOGS NOT WANTING TO BE OUT ON THE DECK AS IT RAINS BUT WILL GO FOR A WALK IN THE RAIN. SILLY DOGS.

DOES YOUR MOM HAVE SOMEONE TAKING HER FOR HER LASER EYE TREATMENTS? DID THE DR SAY THAT SHE CAN DRIVE HERSELF EVEN IF THEY ONLY DO ONE EYE? I HOPE ALL WENT WELL AND THAT THEY WERE ABLE TO DO BOTH EYES.

HAVE A GREAT TGIF

IT WAS COLD HER, 45 DEGREES. NO RAIN TODAY BUT WILL BE RAINY ALL WEEKEND.

It looks like there are roots forming on the pineapple plant but a bit early to tell for sure. No mom wouldnt do an avacoda either. Mom likes them in salads but bet they are hard to get going plus some get the avacoda on them but most dont. Not good to have around birds either so another reason to let them be.
Mom didn’t have a very good day yesterday. She decided to go to the fruit stand after washing up the sheets and hanging them out and some house cleaning. Well her wallet was missing. Mom called Giant Eagle since that is where she used it last. They didn’t have it. Then she tore the car apart inside and the trunk and no wallet. She started calling to cancel her cards and get new ones then. She looked in the car again and all the rooms in the house. Then she had to go to the bank so she stopped at the fruit stand and got a few things too. She came home and took the sheets off the line and put stuff away and looked some more. She got supper and did dishes and cleaned up and then started to clean my condo and play gym. Then it hit her!! Yep she took her wallet along to vote and left it in dads truck. She ran out to get it and there it was. Now she has to wait on all the new cards to come and then do what she has to do with them too. Wow what a day. Mom looked pretty tired tonight. “A memory last forever never does it die. True friends stay together and never say goodbye.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Falco
How did the laser treatment on Mom's eyes go? Did he do just one or both? Is this the final treatment, or does she still have more to go thru?

Well, Mom's trip to the gym yesterday was a total bust! She went in, said hi to Becky, and went over to the arm bike to warm up her shoulders. She usually does 6-10 minutes on there, but after 3 minutes she was dizzy. She went back up to the front desk, and Becky and Lindsey (the gym ops mgr) took one look at her and said "go home you look way too pale and weak". So maybe tomorrow, but if she does there still won't be any zumba for a while.

Meanwhile today Mom did go and get her arthritis massage. Mattea concentrated on Mom's back over her lungs to help break up the congestion. And Mom's shoulders were really tight, so she worked on that and the sinuses. Mom felt lots better by the time she left.

When she got home she fixed a roast beef and provolone wrap for our lunch. It would have been perfect if she had just left off that nasty spinach! Needless to say I ate RB and spit the spinach on Mom's shoulder. Hey! Maybe it will help with those tight muscles!

  Hello Falco~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I can't believe I'm BOTD! I am so excited and so grateful to all my friends here. It is still such an honor to be picked from all the awesome birds here to have a day in the spotlight!
We have had a crazy morning already! It was pretty loud last night since they were paving the road across the street. Who knew that paving included pounding? I didn't! It was the stream roller I guess! Mom cranked the radio up but you could still feel a bit of shaking. I squawked a few times and Merlin spent most of the night in the window watching it all! McKenzie slept through it all!! They were done by 4 am but I think I'll be grabbing a nap later!
We have a wetland that runs the length of the complex. It is fenced in but it's just a plank fence and not totally to the ground. When mom was walking McKenzie this morning, McKenzie stuck her head under the fence that encloses the wetland and pulled out a Mole! Thank goodness mom has been working on "drop" with her because when mom screamed, she dropped it! The poor thing was flailing around and so scared! McKenzie knew she had done something bad cause she flattened out on the walkway and looked guiltily at mom!
Mom locked McKenzie in the car and grabbed the car towel. She picked up the little Mole and checked him out. Thankfully he wasn't hurt! He kept flailing and growled at mom! Mom crawled against the fence and found his hole and set him down there. He dug a little and then popped back down in the hole. Mom told McKenzie that there will be no hunting allowed! We read later on that coyotes dig up moles for food. Dad thinks any kind of dog would do it and that is probably true. Obviously there will be no more walking anywhere near the fence! I don't think moms heart could take another incident like that!hahahahaha She was so scared that McKenzie had killed it.
Has your mom taken a picture of you with your turtleneck on? Since you probably only have one more week, she should grab a picture! I bet you look so cute even if it is annoying to have on!
Come on over to the castle today! Mikey and Kacey have had Lizzy and Chipper prepare a wonderful luncheon for us! I can't wait to see you!!!
Enjoy your day!
