  Heya, Hulk!
Yeah, we had a lovely day here, too--little warmer like you said, but the sun stayed behind the clouds so it did not get too warm. Lovely with the patio doors open!

Mom chatted with Kim on the phone. She was so happy she got a recliner that is motorized and will help her get up. She says it has two motors--one to get up, the other for the legs. She also bought her hubby a recliner, but not motorized. That will free up a lot of room in her living room once the big couch is out of there. She was really happy, too, as she walked well at the store yesterday. Mom may go see her on Friday. If not she will get there next week for sure.

Other than that, nothing else happening here. Nice quiet humpday!

Wing hugs coming your way,
Your buddy,

  Hi Hulk
Mom tried getting a picture of me with the corn beak but I wouldnt co operate.
We might not be on tomorrow so just wanted to let you know so you know we are ok and should be back on Friday again.
This morning dad was up as usual early but mom didn’t get up with him. Dad had to take some things down to the trail and was going to tell mom he was leaving but she was sound asleep so he left her sleep. Mom was really tired but got up not long after dad left anyway. It was a cool morning but I did get out in the afternoon for my sunbath after it warmed up and the sun came out.
Mom finally went to the fruit stand today and everyone was so happy to see her. She came home with a good watermelon too as well as some other fruits too.
Today skin sis and the grand came and stayed awhile. I was happy to see them and sat right with everyone and put my two cents worth in the conversations as well.

That's great sleeping weather after a hot day.
Peppy says thanks for the vote.
The kissing booth field trip at Yellowstone should wrap up today, so stop by and see what other adventures we have in store. Yogi Bear and Jellystone park, anyone? Tomorrow?
What a difference a day makes! Yesterday and the day before were oppressively humid and hot, and today it's not even 70 and cloudy. The guys said 74 and partly sunny today, so it's warming slowly. It's not raining though and we could use some again.
Last night mom and her sister went to Red Lobster for dinner. Neither of them could finish the meal, and neither of them would take shrimp home. It's never the same warmed over, is it? The funny thing was they were looking at a berry dessert and talking about splitting it before they ordered. Of course, not being members of the clean plate club, not to mention stuffed, they didn't get the dessert.
It's not going to be a very interesting day today, but that's fine with us. It means when mom gets home from the pool, she'll be ours for the rest of the day, and by then, we'll have rearranged our cages to our liking as well.
I hope you are having a great summer day, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

It feels so good to have cooler temps and lower humidity for a change! This is visiting nurse day but tomorrow dad will be gone all day with three appointments with specialists at the Iowa City VA Hospital, a long boring day for him! Dad's sister will drive him there thankfully, he still don't trust his strength to hold up that long by himself! Have a happy hump day dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all soon, but probably not tomorrow...

  'toos Day Fishing Recap!
'Toos day morning, zippy surprises all the fisherbirds with a sunnyside up egg breakfast with hash browns and bacon! They enjoy the early feast dockside at the marina before Peppino rings the ship's bell, signaling it is time to leave! Dixie toots the horn as Hulk drives the Gizzy Mo into the bay. Raffi, Willie & Picabo consult the fishing charts and decide to go to Peppermint Point and yry their luck with muskie fishing. They warn Zippy, Peppino and Dixie to ve careful since these are huge fish and could easily drag the smaller birds overboard!
The only thing all morning to fall overboard is Willie's sandwich at lunch time! He tried to feed a seagull and the ham sandwich flew alright- out of his talons and into the sea! Maybe some muskie will enjoy that! Hehehe! Since they had no luck at Peppermint Point, Picabo suggests they go to Buoy 80 in the harbor. Raffi agrees that fish like to hang around buoys! He says there are always seagulls fishing there and they eat fish so there must be fish!
Hulk anchors the boat and Dixie suggests they do some net fishing. Hulk lays out the nets with Willie and Zippy's help. They are heavy and it takes all the fisherbirds to lift them over the side and into the water. Whoops! There goes Peppino, over the side. Willie throws a life preserver to his frother and lifts him out of the water! Peppino looks like a drownded rat! As he dries off, the birds see all sorts of rainbow colors swirling inside the net! Hooray, shouts Hulk, as they reel in the net filled with fish! Raffi says it is so many fish, we will have to sell them to Ms. BB at the TPB&G and she can host a fish fry! That sounds like a greyt idea says Picabo. Hulk fires up the engines and the Gizzy Mo heads back to BC, filled with fish and happy fisherbirds! Raffi checks his watch and says, we have to hurry- the shuttle is loading up at the KB for the camping trip to Yosemite with Miss Fakco. We sure don't want to miss that. Dixie reminds the birds that they already have all their camping gear on the Gizzy Mo so it will be easy to just transfer it to the shuttle! Willie says they can dock at the bar and the Pelican Moving Company can unload the fish off the boat while the fisher birds run to make the shuttle!
Picabo thanks every bird for the wonderful fishing trip!

  Hi, Hulk
Know many these days don't bother with a home phone as eggstra eggspense they don't need. Really don't us ours much and if the cable goes out then the phone is out as well. That is quite inconvenient as if didn't have cell phones how to call for help? Can't go online either for help since that is also off! Since skinsis got her own cell phone plan at a discount thru her work the bill is quite reasonable since neither has smart phone (yet).

Still warm here but at least the lil breeze we had was cool. Nights are also cool so can open windows then for easier sleeping.

Dad got the air cleaner he saw at Target as it was the same brand as one they'd bought a long time ago. Works better as old one was quite basic and new one has various choices of cleaning.

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

  Hi Hulk,
Well I'm a little bad, but mom always catches me. :0

I step up pretty good but I get tired and mom says she wants me to step up and get some eggcercize. Then I get bored doing that so I take off towards Laka's tree, again.

Mom says that my tree will be ready for me to go venture in this weekend so I'm happy. :)

I'll have mom take a picture once I find my favorite perch. She still has to put my toys on the tree too.

She's hoping that I will be a good boy and that time will tell till I can be free all day like my fister Laka. She's never locked in her cage even if she's bad. Mom says she's well trained not to go off her tree or her cage.

Ahhh to be free.......one day. :)

Hugs and a vote for you.

The wedding was very beautiful ... good weather, good food and good music ... lots of happy tears from my parronts. Can't wait to get the official pics. I have 3 pics on my page and the waterfall one is one official.
My parronts went to the beach this morning. They said the ocean was warmer than our pool. The water was calm and clear ... a very nice beach day. Until the big nasty t-storm hit. They were soaked getting into the house. There was a lot of standing water around too. I viewed all this from my nice comfy bed.

  Hi Hulk
well we couldn't blog last night because we had no internet. yesterday mom spent lots of time at the office store xeroxing documents, then she spent time at triple A having a notary stamp papers, then she went and bought more file folders then she went back to the office store and xeroxed some more and then went to the post office to mail poa letters to health insurance and mail order pharmaceutical company for g-ma. then a guy came this morning from the Pa dept ar agriculture and sprayed the hemlocks for red spider mite infestation which he said was kiling the hemlocks. mom was very upset because she doesn't like any kind of insecticide. this morning she went to ss and it only took about 5 minutes to change Gmas mail to our house and when SS lady asked for a verification document mom had all of them with her and had to go through everything to find what the lady wanted. when mom came home she spent the rest of the day weeding the along the side of the road and trimming it with a scissor. then some guys came and cut down all 5 of our rhododendrons that were about 25 feet tall. because the the dept of pa agriculture said they had a fungus called root rot which was killing everything so they will be treating the soil next week for that. tomorrow will be a nightmare because tall timber tree co is coming to cut down 3 trees. the 50' oak will take them about 5 hours to bring down and the other 2 not too much time. mom and dad had the place looking absolutely perfect today and mom said for what. tomorrow it will look like a total disaster. mom has some babies in one bird house and figures she will just stand somewhere safe holding the bird house so the mom will come and feed the babies. hopefully the men will dig up a few of the shrubs before they bgin so they won't get damage. the tree is only about 15 feet from the house and there could potentially be damage to the house as well. anyway might not be online since a branch might cut off our power.

Oh, what a lovely day here! 68 for a high, low humidity and dew point, sun, could not ask for more or better weather! So nice to have the patio doors open and just the ceiling fan going.

Mom and I were watching TV while she did her exercises, and we saw the horrible suicide bombing at the Turkish airport. Please take a minute and say a prayer for all those who lost their lives, and the injured, and their families. The world seems to have gone mad...

  Hi Hulk
Glad its cooler here now too.
I got my sunbath today after mom got home from getting groceries and it wasn’t as humid then, It was hot when mom first got home but by the time she put things away the humidity had went down.
Mom didn’t buy any peaches or nectarines this week at the store cause the ones she got last week weren’t very good and most were thrown away. Mom got corn at the store and we had that for supper. Mom always gives me a whole side on a cob to eat while they are eating. I get it all over my beakie. Its beak smaking good!
I don’t like those flies coming in my house! Mom and dad are always after them with the flyswatters. I do the fly around when they chase the flies. Mom is more in control but dad with a flyswatter sure isn’t!

There's nothing like homemade brownies that are made from scratch!My Mom has a recipe she uses for homemade brownies that uses bakers chocolate!That recipe is so much better than the box mix!
Its so good to hear that you are finally getting some decent weather there!Its sounds like you've got almost the same temperature that we are getting here.Its so cold at night here and we still get the cool mornings.
I'm really good also when I get my nails and beak trim,my nails are very painful to get done as my mom has to twist them around to the front in order to see what she's cutting and my nails have grown thick and warped.I just lay back and cry whenever my Mom does my beak.My Mom feels so bad when she hears me crying,I don't squirm or wriggle out of her grasp either.Its good that you're so good and you like going to get your nails and wings trimmed.
This morning was a dismal dark,dreary looking day with our highs for the day of 75 the lows of 65 and right now its 74 under dark cloudy skies.There's no sun at all and it looks like its going to rain any minute.Mom got dad off to work and then she did some chores and then got us all up and cleaned our cages.She had to take Candida's cage all apart because she's back to chewing up all the paper and cardboard Mom has over her grate.That took a long time for Mom to clean and sweep all the debris out from under the grate and the sides of the cage before she could put back fresh cardboard and paper.And then all the toys Mom has on the cage floor to keep her from getting the whole thing torn up.After Mom finished with Candida's cage she gave us our bean mix.We are going to have an uneventful day here again today with Mom just finishing up some chores and vacuuming the house.We are happy about that as it keeps Mom here with us.We are so hoping to see some sun today so we can go outside for our shower and sun bath.
We never got out for a sunbath but the sun finally appeared late in the day around 5:00pm and we all got to join Mom and Dad on the deck for a wonderful dinner.Mom gave us both some mashed potatoes,peas and corn and did we just love being outside to watch all the wild birds,squirrels and rats and chipmunks!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for my sweet Buddy!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

Mom loves releasing the animals; it's why she does what she does. I hope your mom got to the pool yesterday.
Peppy says thanks for the vote.
If you're going to the Kissing Booth today, make sure you have your camping equipment, we're off to Yellowstone Park for an overnight trip. We're hoping to see all kinds of wildlife, and of course, the geysers. We're packed and ready for whatever adventure Falco has in mind.
Mom is doing laundry today, but with this weather it's also a pool day. She got 6 books yesterday at the pool from various friends. She went with 2, hoping to return home with one, and ended up with a bag full. At least none of the ladies has to buy each book! They all trade them back and forth all summer long.
We are in for a cage cleaning later today, too. Mom cleans every day, but once or twice a week, she scrubs everything too, and that's what we're in for today. I hope you are having a great summer day, getting lots of sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Hulk
The parronts like the cable service for the most part but not the high price. There's is bundled with home phone and internet. Probably don't need home phone so much but do use the wifi daily.

Another hot day but continues to be cooler at night. The parronts run the air cleaners at night to help move the air around when things were closed up all day due to outside heat.

Well I did miss my mom and dad and they missed me. but, I did good.
I'm back! I had my 5 sleeps at vet-camp. The report was a well behaved bird. Mom came around the corner and when I saw her, I was all eggcited and called out to her. I was so happy to see my parronts. Mom held me while dad packed my stuff. So good to be home. My skinsis is married now and the wedding was beautiful. There were two other flower girls but, I know that I did a very good job. Even Luna (Jess's corgi) walked down the aisle. She went crazy at rehearsal trying to get to Jess (my skinsis) but was perfect during the wedding. When everyone clapped for Jess & Jeff, she barked her congrats one time. We are all trying to catch up on our sleep.

  Today's fish story!
The sun rose early and shined right into Dixie's eyes, waking him up! The other fisher virds were snoring, especially Raffi, so Dixie decided to wake them all up. Afterall, he was hungry! So he wiggled Willie's hammock and Willie fell out! That was so funny so Willie and Dixie wiggled Picabo's hammock and dumped him out too! Then they did the same to Hulk and Peppino. They were nicer to Zippy and jiggled her enough to wake her up, nothing more! Picabo said no breakfast unless we catch it! So the fisher birds piled on board the Tizzy Mo and sorted out their fishing tackle. Zippy stayed on shore to get the fire going and receive a special delivery of Cookie Bucks Coffee. The boys set off to catch breakfast. Raffi and Willie catch two big lake trout and the boys think this is enough for them all for breakfast. Zippy roasts the fish over the campfire and every bird enjoys a nice breakfast. Peppino rubs his full belly!
Time to strike camp and head to Rippling Water Point. Hulk says he hears the fishing is good here. The fisher birds spend all morning here with only one casualty. Willie was casting his kine and hooked a super big fish, Raffi! At least he hooked his fishing hat and the hat fkew out over the water. Dixie and Peppino took the raft out to pick up the hat before it got away. In all the excitement, Zippy fell over board and Hulk jumped over to help her. The water was so nice, picabo and Dixie jumped in for a swim too. Then all the fisher birds swam and played in the water! Zippy packed fish tacos for lunch so every bird ate as their feathers dried off. It was very hot so they decided to call it a day and pulled into Red Cat Marina. They hung their hammocks on deck for siestas. And when they all woke up, it was dinnertime so they went to the Harbor Grill and Chill for dinner. A little tired of fish, they all ate juicy steaks and leafy green salads with pudding cake topped with pistachio ice cream for dessert. Back on the Gizzy Mo, they sang the sings of their people until they all fell deep asleep in their hammocks, smelling if fish!

  Heya, Hulk!
MMMMMM! Oh, I got the brownies and I would not share more than a crumb with Mom. Those are the best I have had in ages! Thank you for sending them!

It stayed warm thru the night, and woke up to it being 69 degrees already. The good thing is that the dew point and humidity dropped so that it is not so sticky icky! 75 now, and Mom has the patio doors open and the ceiling fan on. Speaking of those patio doors--Mom washed the windows on both the living room and the bedroom patio doors. PLUS she did the two big windows in the dining room/kitchen. Holy moly! She sure was tired after that, too. I cheered her on. I like supervising that stuff, and not get near Mom. She says I am very smart. Hey, I don't want to get commandeered into doing any of the work!

Other than that, it was a nice day with Mom. Sure hope you had a wonderful day too!

Oh how I love our fishing picture!Its just so much fun when we all can get together for our fishing trips!We always have the best fun ever and then get to eat some greyt food that we make and then have a nice nap to top it all off!
Oh do those brownies sound so good!Does Aunt Sandy know for sure if the recipe is from her great grandmother?How awesome for that lady to want to buy more peanut brittle from Aunt Sandy,you know it just has to be so good!Aunt Sandy is an awesome baker!We have been so lucky here in that we are still having our cold nights and cooler mornings which turn into nice 70 degree afternoons.So far we haven't needed anything to cool us off with.Mom is hoping that my dad won't have to install the a/c's yet!Its just awful to have such hot humid weather that keeps you sweating!Mom hates the sweating part of the humidity and not being able to breathe!Oh I sure do hope you don't have a traumatic nail and flight trim session.Candida and I were lucky we had our nails,beaks and flight trims last week.
This morning was another bright sunny day with the highs for the day of 76 the lows of 60 and right now its 75.Mom got dad off to work and then she went upstairs and scrubbed the bathroom and collected all the area rugs and beat them outside and left them on the deck for some air.Then she scrubbed the downstairs bathroom and by then it was time to get us up.She cleaned our cages and swept our room and gave us our bean mix.Mom is working on more chores that she never got done yesterday and then maybe if she gets done in time she can get us all outside on the deck for some sunshine and a nice shower or two.Other than Mom being busy around the house,its going to be another quiet boring day here which we all look forward too!
UPDATE:We finally got to get outside today and enjoy some sunshine and some showers on the deck while Mom read a little.We didn't get out til after 3:00pm but the sun was still hot and there was lots of action with the birds,chipmunks and squirrels and rats.We got to join Mom and dad for dinner out on the deck and Dixie who refused to eat all day was begging off dad for his peas and bread.Mom gave them some carrots and mashed potatoes and they really enjoyed those!The weather sure did drop in temperature as soon as Mom brought dinner out to the deck table.Suddenly the sun went down around 5:30pm and it got quite chilly.After dinner both Mom and dad didn't stay out long and we all had to get back inside.

Mom is forever black and blue too but has low platelets so she bruises easy.
This morning mom and dad had to take the car over to a local business to see if he could fix the AC in it. Mom has AC for a little while and then it quits and she just puts her windows all down as she rides along. Dad said when your in the city its nice to have the AC working though so guess he has a point there. It just needed Freon added to it so that was good and now it works good.
Then mom was having trouble with her laptop and took it for a friend to look at and here there was two programs trying to run at the same time so he fixed that for mom and now she has that fixed too.
Yep a busy day here with washing clothes and hanging some out and scrubbing the floors and running the sweeper besides all the above stuff going on. I got my sunbath too so mom is pretty tired tonight.

  Hi Hulk
I love our fishing trips too, and hope we catch lots of them. Peppy is on his first time with us, and he's so excited about going. I hope he doesn't scare away the fish!
Peppy thanks you for the vote.
This morning when mom walked the dogs it was trying to rain, so she figured it would rain a lot while she was at the center. No such luck, though! It cleared up, so she had to water plants when she got back.
Meanwhile at the center this morning, she was cleaning and feeding in the avian nursery. It was hot in there, for sure. Those woodpeckers were really active, and one escaped, but mom caught it and put it back. There are several kestrels in there now, too. They are so cute. There is also a screech owl who will be going to the zoo as an education ambassador later in the week. He is missing an eye, so can't be released, and we already have a screechie on our permit, so we found a new home for him. When mom left the center, she carried animals with her. She released a mallard at the river. It was the longest release she ever did! The steps leading to the river's edge were blocked off, so mom opened the carrier at the top of the bluff, hoping she would go down right away to the water. Instead, she hung out, eating greens, and looking for bugs! It took about 20 minutes for her to leave and go down to the river. Mom had to stay and make sure she was headed in the right direction, and not back onto the road. Meanwhile, the possums in her car were parked in the shade with the windows down. So mom released the 4 possums in our yard, and they were much easier. They left right away. Mom always wishes them a long happy life. Now she has to remember to return the carriers the animals were in. They are at the bottom of the driveway, so hopefully she'll remember to return them.
The pool was a welcome sight today, since it's so hot and humid here. After the great release, mom couldn't wait to dip her head underwater. It was a good afternoon, and now that she's home, she's all ours for the rest of the day. We love that!
Come on by the kissing booth, Falco is there for the next 2 weeks. She's planning on some fun. Uncle Frank is looking for more volunteers to be there, so if you can help out, let him know!
I hope you are having a wonderful summer day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Stay cool if you can! Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Hulk
Hmmm, think the LaHabra flock mentioned that was happening to them as well and that the new cable owners were not upgrading any wires. Not sure about price but doubt it would be much less.

Good the humidity is going down. Glad isn't to high here now that temp is heating up more.

Nice to have a family recipe. Don't really have one here though there is a sponge cake type thing mom's mom made but not our mom's favorite so never makes it.

Keep cool, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Fishing highlights!
The Gizzy Mo shoved off from the dock this morning for a few days of fishing! Hulk was at the wheel with Peppino as lookout for a good fishing spot. Picabo and Raffi read the navegation charts. Willie, Zippy and Dixie enjoyed the scenery and watched the sea gulls enjoy fishy meals. The fist stop was Hidden Bay where the fisher birds dropped anchor for a morning of fishing fun. Peppino was lucky with 8 nice trout and Dixie caught sone sunfish which were too littke si he had to throw them back!
As the sun rose high in the sky, Picabo and Zippy chopped up chunks of raw fish that Hulk and Raffi caught. Then they chopped onions and tomatoes and cilantro and threw it all in a big bowl. Zippy squeezed five limes into the bowl and stirred it all up. Dixie got out the tortilla chips and Hulk handed out the cold root beers! All the fisher birds enjoyed the ceviche and drinks.
In the afternoon they sailed to Windy Cove which turned out to not be windy at all. There seemed to be no fish biting there but it was hot so the fisher birds jumped in the warm water for a nice swim.
Then Hulk guided the Gizzy Mo to Blue Spring Lagoon where they set up camp on land and roasted the fish they caught all day. After songs around the campfire, they hung hammocks in the trees and fell asleep!

  Hi Hulk
mom says this POA for G-mais really complicated. G-pa's son who is his POA apparently changed all G-ma's mail to his address yet he was not POA of G-ma. since mom is legally G-mas POA all these companies want proof that she is POA just so they will forward G-mas bills to mom yet they don't send any forms to tell you want they need as proof. mom now has forms coming out of the wazoo. she has now spent 3 days just talking with G-mas medication pharmacy on how to pay the bills and legally let them know she is POA. she will now make double copies of everything and send one set to the pharmacy and one set to g-mas health insurance and hope that is enough. Gpas son just opened an account for Gma with SS and told mom she can use that to change G-mas address but according to SS that is illegal so mom will then take all the forms she has with her to SS to change g-mas mailing address to her own and hope she doesn't get G-pas son in trouble for doing it the way he did. mom is not going to take any chances and do anything wrong. dad told mom she should start charging g-ma for being POA and for all this work.

last night after being disappointed that the milonga was cancelled we didn't stick around and didn't realize that it was still going on or we would have stayed. mom stayed up to 3:30am watching a foreign german film called labyrinth of lies about a young german attorney prosecutor who brought to trial 18 former SS nazi officers at Auschwitz. it was a true story and quite fascinating to watch. mom was exhausted when she went to bed and was almost asleep when she felt something walking on her leg. she reached down thinking it was a ant but felt nothing. a second later she felt it again but this time on her thigh and after reaching down she felt nothing. finally she pulled the sheet bak turned on the light and found a CENTIPEDE crawling on her leg. mom was too tired to be horrified or else she would have jumped out the window. she grabbed a pillow and bushed it off of her leg and it ran under the bed. mom is hoping Boo Boo the hunter will find it tonight when she is loose in the bedroom. Boo Boo misses nothing.

love Boo Boo

  Heya, Hulk!
Love the pic!! Very cool! Send the brownies our way, okay? Mmm!

We were hot and humid and rainy overnight and in the morning. Got to 87, but ugh, that dampness from the dewpoint being in the mid 60's. Wind changed tonight and the dew point and humidity are in the mid 50's with a temp of 77. Much, much nicer!

Mom went to Grandpa's tonight for supper and then did some weeding in his flowerbeds. Luckily she was able to pull some stuff out by the roots, as the ground was moist. She says she needs to get over there and get the rest of the weeds out, but she is not sure if something is a flower or not for some of the stuff. She knows the clover stuff is weed, and of course dandelions, but there are some things coming up that are questionable!

Hope you have a greyt rest of the night!
Wing hugs coming your way!
Your buddy,

  Hi Hulk
It was hot and humid here today with a little breeze but so hot didnt notice it.
Mom didnt know the milonga was cancelled till after the we were already there and home LOL. Suzi and I went and we had a good time. We will go next week but might not have a typist depending when mom and dad get back home or if the go etc.
I think mom is falling apart on me! Her ribs hurt because she had to lean over in that deep freezer when she was cleaning it out so she is sore from that. Then I was out for my sunbath and when we went to come in mom had the phone and her bag with crocheting in it to come in. I was still in my outside condo but mom had wheeled me under the porch. The front door was hard to open and as mom gave it a little shove with her foot one of the crocheting needles gouged her lower leg. Mom hobbled in the house and put a wet paper towel on the owie and came back out and bought me in and then she worked on it. She got ice and paper towels and put her leg up as she laid on the couch. She told dad she was wounded and couldn’t get supper but guess dad saw she was still breathing and didn’t fall for that LOL. Anyway mom got it wrapped up and will be leaving it wrapped for bed too.

Skin sis finally left to go home around 7:00pm and Mom ran up to take a shower and then got everything ready for dad's work for tomorrow.Its been another long day but at least we got to enjoy some deck time in the sunshine with Mom!
