Thanks to Zippy for my nomination.And thanks to Grover's mom for my botd pictures. She was one of 2 rare parakeets in the store, the smaller of the 2 and we felt like she needed a good home.

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you had a wonderful day! Still cooler here and still rainy. There were suppose to be thunderbooms this afternoon but it never happened.
We did lots of chores today including cleaning out the pantry again. Mom has no idea why it gets so messed up. Probably from dad since he is always looking for something he can't seem to find. It is usually right in front of him!hehehehehehe
I got bored during the pantry cleaning so I did a lot of yelling. Mom kept stopping and coming over to sit with me. I finally decided to take a nap and let her finish up.
Have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and sending big hugs your way!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you had a wonderful day! I still have rain but it makes it seem much more normal than all that sunshine and hot temps! Crazy that we would miss the rain!
We didn't do much today. Mom grabbed a nap when she got home and then took the kids to work. She stopped by the market on the way back and got me some grapes! They were yummy.
Tomorrow we have lots of chores to get done so I'll be supervising it all! We are going to be home together so that is all that matters to me!
There are still lots of people up here who do not have power. It may take a few more days to fix it all since there were a lot of trees that fell down and some of the roads in the rural areas are still blocked. At least the wind has been calmer for the last few days so no more trees coming down!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you are having a great day!! Still rainy and windy up here but the wind is not as bad today! Good thing cause lots of people lost power. There are tons of trees up here and a lot of them came down. Branches too. Mom's store was the only one with power so there were lots of people shopping there yesterday. They told mom that the line for the gas station was out on the street! They were the only ones in the whole town who had working gas pumps!
I'm busy munching on an apple while mom gets my notes done. Mom doesn't have to take anyone anywhere today so we spent the morning playing!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a hug!

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still very pretty here and only in the 80's. Rain is suppose to come back for the weekend and we sure could use it! We are not use to being so dry for so long. Everything is yellow and I want it to be green again!
We are getting laundry done today. Mom has to work tonight but she'll have Friday night off. She is going to the library later to get me more story books and she will see what movies they have in. Friday movie night is my favorite! Even if the movie isn't good I'll still have popcorn!
Enjoy the day and I hope you get to do lots of fun things!

  Hello Miss Ronnie~~
I hope you guys are enjoying the day! We had a red ring around the sun this morning. Everyone was talking about it and trying to figure out what caused it when mom reminded them that there are huge fires over the mountain. It was pretty but it is so sad to think about what those people are going through!
Lots of Christmas lights and outdoor Christmas decor showed up last night! Yep! We are all ready for Christmas, right? I am thinking of making my own holiday to celebrate Parrots! I haven't figured out all the details yet but I know I'm going to have lots of food involved with it! I think the parronts should give the parrots presents too!! I'll work it all out!!
Enjoy the day!!

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you are having a perfect kind of day! I just finished some apple, cinnamon, pecan oatmeal! I must say I think this is my favorite so far! I like all the oatmeal that mom makes but the pecans were a surprise!
The rain storm we had yesterday did not help with the fire on the other side of the mountain. I guess it made it worse since it caused more wind. I feel so bad for all those people.
Mom went back to work last night and of course there was tons of work waiting for her. There is a back up person but she is in the garden and they don't want her to do anything but the garden. Kind of makes it useless to have a back up if they are not going to be able to do the work! Mom will catch up eventually.
Believe it or not, they already have the Christmas jammies out for the little ones. Mom says the baby that can wear it has not even been born yet! Talk about planning ahead! The Halloween ones are out too and all the Autumn decor. That stuff is nice to look at but I don't think anyone is ready to think about Christmas yet.
Enjoy the day!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope your day is going great! I've been out sitting with mom all morning and I'm having a wonderful time. I chewed on her shoelace, preened a bit. Chewed on her jeans, preened a bit. I am in a chewing, preening kind of mood today! This molt I am going through is horrendous! Mom is wondering how wild Amazons fly when they lose 4 tail feathers while molting! I can't fly so how should I know??
My play cage was all nice and clean when I came out this morning. Mom said there were so many fuzzy feathers everywhere that it took forever! When she finally finished up the cage, Merlin went over and threw up right in front of it! Hairballs!! Guess he didn't want to feel left out with all the cleaning going on!
There was suppose to be no rain this week but mom went to the car wash so of course it rained this morning! I just hope it continues on over the mountains and rains over there. There are so many fires there and they could really use some rain!
I hope you have a very fun day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you are having a lovely day! It's been nice here so far. It's moms last day of vacation. Bummer! She has to go back tomorrow night and I am not happy about that. She tells me we will have plenty of time to spend together so not to worry.
We are still working on the Linen closet. There is lots of stuff in there! We have been able to get rid of a bunch of stuff so far and it's looking good!
We read that we are suppose to have 3 big snow storms between December and February this winter. It was in the Farmer's almanac. They were pretty right on with the summer prediction so we tend to believe them. Not looking forward to that. At least when you know ahead of time you can prepare.
I hope you have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you had the most wonderful day ever! It was nice here. We are still having sunshine but it's not really hot.
We spent the day cleaning. It took forever to clean the mini blinds but at least that does not have to be done too many times a year! We washed the drapes and cleaned the fireplace too. The living room looks good now and tomorrow we will pick another room to do.
Dad come home this afternoon. He has to take that 34 hour break so he'll be here until Wednesday. He's already gone to sleep since he was up all night. He did make sure to give me a goldfish before he went to sleep! Do I have him well trained or what? hehehehehehe
Tonight mom and I are going to watch Star Trek Into Darkness. I like that movie and we think Zachary Quinto is fabulous! He has done Leonard Nimoy proud!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you all enjoyed your Sunday. It was quiet around here. Mom had some stuff to get done and I just hung out and played for a while. Then I wanted to sit with mom so we did that for a few hours. It was fun!
We are having a short vacation for the next 4 days so I suppose I will be doing lots of supervising. Dad will be home tomorrow. He has to deliver in Seattle and then take a 34 hour break. There are very strict rules about how many hours he can drive and how much of a break he has to take. There is a computer in the truck that tells him exactly how many hours he has left to drive in a day! The truck will actually shut off if he goes over! Such amazing technology!!!
Have a great night!

I hope you had a great day. It was nice here. We started out the day with lightening and thunder booms. It as very pretty but very loud. The sun cam out later and it was a nice day.
I supervised lots of chores today. I was rather boring but mom did take time out to play with me and put Rio on for me to watch! I just love that movie and I had popcorn too!

I hope your day has been just fantastic! It's warm and cloudy here so you know what that means! Muggy! Don't like that much but it doesn't happen much.
The guy came to fix the dryer today. It was the plastic part that covers the drum that was making it squeak. Mom already knew that since she watch a youtube video and had already opened it up to take a look. It is not squeaking anymore and it is drying the stuff so it's all good!
It's our weekend now but I don't know what we are going to do yet. There are lots of chores to get done so I'm sure we will be doing that for a while. I think playing with me should be high on the list too! Actually, I think it should be the only thing on the list!
Enjoy your evening and I hope it's just lovely!

  Hello Miss Ronnie~~
I hope you are having a great day! The Bad Mom went out to get stuff done for the car yesterday and was gone for a long time! I was not happy at all! Then this morning the Bad Mom drove Jennifer down to her dad's house! She was gone for a long time again!! She really should know that she needs to be here doing what I want to do!!!! Anyway that is the reason I didn't get any notes out yesterday. The car had to have a smog check, then mom went and bought an expensive sticker and then got the oil changed. She tells me it's all important stuff but it was very boring around here with just dad and the cat to keep me company! I expect her to make it up to me somehow. Maybe some corn bread!
I hope your day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been very nice here this morning. Dad closed the window up in the bedroom because Merlin was howling again!hahahahahaha Mom told him welcome to her world!
Cleaning going on around here today! Mom was doing the bathrooms while dad moved my cage out and swept up my latest art project. Guess I'm going to have to spend the day making a new one! I really didn't like him moving the cage with me in it. He even used the evil vacuum when he was done sweeping. I am not very happy with dad right now!
Our dryer is squeaking so they are going to come over and take a look at it later. Mom knows what it is already since she opened it up to look. She watched a youtube video! It's a plastic thing that covers the drum. It's a very old dryer so we are hoping to get a new one. At least it still works!

I hope you are having a great day! It's been nice around here. Mom went off for a while to the market. She got me some lovely papaya, mango and almonds! I had the papaya right away! I do love papaya!
Dad is home and has been watching a movie this afternoon so I don't know if I will get to watch a movie later or not. It's okay since he's not around much and I can be nice and let him have the TV for a while. I'll still have my story later!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's going to be a billion degrees here again!hahahahahaha One month of summer to go and hopefully my rain will come back!
Russell Wilson is going to be a Seahawk until 2019!!! I guess he knew how much this 12th bird wanted him to stay! He is going to get a gazillion dollars! Well close to that I think! Now we have to worry about whether or not they have the money to keep the other players! I'm sure they make a whole bunch of money on merchandise so I think they can afford it! The players jersey's are 100$ each and this state is filled with people wearing them!
Training camp opens today and Taima is there! I can't wait to see the pictures! I follow him on Facebook and love to see all his pictures. Wish I had a wing span like that!!!
Have a great day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I think it's hot just about everywhere now. I think we are going to break the record for the most days over 90 today. I guess they have been keeping the record for about 120 years.
Seahawks training camp starts tomorrow and Taima the hawk is coming over for a meet and greet! Wish we could get up there to see him but mom has to work the whole weekend. Everyone is very excited for football to start again. It seems rather dull around here without it!
We are finishing up laundry and getting things ready for mom to go back to work tonight. It's not much fun but I do have some new toys to keep me occupied!
I hope your day is just fabulous!! Stay cool and enjoy it!

I hope you are having a fun day! I supervised the turtle tank cleaning and now I am sharing some oatmeal with mom. I have dried cranberries in mine and she has raisins in hers. I don't like raisins much.
The rest of our morning will be spent cleaning bathrooms and finishing up the laundry. Not very exciting but it has to be done. We finally got some rain back so I am enjoying that. Who knew I would end up missing rain???
I have my gifts for my elders and am going to drop them off at the Milonga page. I'll be there but will be silent cause mom will be sleeping! You can see your gifts in my gallery! I am honored for you to be one of my elders!

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Oh don't worry about the blogging. I figured your mom was just busy!!
The rents went up in 4 counties here. It's just because they are afraid there will be rent control so they want to get as much as they can before that happens. The kid's are going to make up the difference since they have both been working for a while. They couldn't afford to get as nice as this on their own so they are both okay with it!
Panther is running for BOTM and he is having a Pow Wow at the Milonga page on Saturday night. We are suppose to adopt elders so I adopted you! I hope you don't mind. I got adopted too! I probably won't get to go since mom will be working but I'll stop by before she goes to sleep to leave you presents!
I hope you have a great day and we hope your mom's brother can get his own computer soon! They are pretty pricey but I bet he would love to have his very own!

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still cooler here and it feels wonderful. We are suppose to get some rain later too! It feels more like what the Northwest should feel like.
We are getting chores done today since mom did not do much this last week! It's catch up time and I have to say it's pretty boring. I want to come out of my play cage but mom has to take Jennifer to work so I have to wait until she gets back! I don't know why she doesn't trust me to be out when she is gone!hehehe
Mom tried calling dad this morning but he didn't pick up. He'll call back later. She needs to tell him that our rent is going up nearly $200. He is going to be pretty upset but everywhere in town is the same. Mom and Ian checked out all the places around here online and most are even higher. We are still going to be $50 below what new renters have to pay. They are talking about rent control in Seattle so every other city is kicking up the rents before that happens here. It's sad since they finally got the $15 minimum wage in Seattle and now everyone is going to have to pay more for rent. Things will never get better for people if they keep raising how much everything costs!
I hope your day is just perfect and that you get to do lots of fun stuff!

Mom had chores to get done this morning. The kitchen and the bathrooms were pretty messy and no one else did any cleaning. It's usually like that unless dad is home. He helps clean.
Dad is in Maryland right now and he is picking up Monster Trucks! Isn't that fun? They have to be in Connecticut by
9 AM tomorrow so he'll be driving all night. He likes that better anyway since there is less traffic! I wouldn't mind seeing what a Monster Truck looks like but they are in trailers so dad won't even see what they look like!

I hope you are having a wonderful day!! Today is my 6th BC anniversary! 6 years ago mom and I went looking for pictures of Amazons and discovered the BC! They were having Camp Birdie and I joined! It's been a wonderful 6 year all because I have made so many awesome friends! Sure do miss Camp Birdie though! It was so much fun!
There was a fire on South Hill last night. It's about 4 miles from me. It was all brush but there was wind and they were afraid that the embers might catch some houses on fire. They were getting ready to evacuate but they got it under control. They are using bulldozers to plow it all under so they won't have to worry about flare ups. Mom could smell it at work be we can't smell it up here. I think the wind is blowing the other way so that saved me from the stink! I'm just glad no houses burned down and not one was hurt and that I didn't have to smell the stink!!
Enjoy the evening and I hope it's perfect!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been way cooler here the past few days and we even got some rain! I was missing it believe it or not!
Last week was so busy! I did not get much time on BC hence my absence from your page!
Dad was home for a few days last week. He was still working but it was all local deliveries and he got to come home in the evenings. There always seems to be too much running around when dad is home.
I have been molting so I have been a bit cranky lately. I bit mom a couple of times but there wasn't too much blood. She understands! I'm just cranky! I am still the cute, adorable, sweet Amazon the mom knows and loves!hehehehe
Back to school is in full swing at mom's store! The kids have only been out for 2 weeks so I doubt any of them are ready to look at back to school stuff yet! Mom says they do have really cute lunch kits and backpacks this year.
I hope all is well at your nest and that you will have a wonderful day!

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you are having a great day! I hope your 4th was tons of fun! Ian told mom the fireworks went on here until midnight. At mom's work it went on until 4am! Ian told mom he went to check on me a few times and I fluttered! That means he woke me up!! It was nice of him to check up on me.
I am sorry I didn't get many notes out yesterday! Mom drove Jennifer down to her dads house. They decided to go to Olympia first because Half Price Books was having a half off sale. Ian said that made them Quarter Price Books!hahahahaha Anyway, you don't really want the Bad Mom in a bookstore because she will spend way too much time looking at the books while her adorable Sugar is home waiting for her! Merlin was locked up in the bedroom and I bet the Bad Mom forgot about that! The Bad Mom was gone for 3 hours! A trip down to Lacey (where Jennifer's dad lives) should only take 1 hour and 10 minutes! The Bad Mom bought 9 books and a reusable shopping bag for $4.17! Great bargain but the Bad Mom should have been home in 1 hour and 10 minutes!
Now mom tells me there is a Half Price Books in Tacoma and she wants to go check that store out! Tacoma is only 15 minutes away but after this fiasco I am not sure I can trust her to come right back!
It is still a billion degrees here and today it's suppose to be a billion and one! I think I have had enough summer now thank you! There are no fans or A/C left in any store around here! Guess everyone should have believed the Weather Channel when they said this was going to happen! Glad the Bad Mom did and got us extra fans! I'm staying cool!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's perfect!

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! It was about a billion degrees here yesterday!!! Okay, it was 98 but it felt like a billion! We are really big babies when it comes to anything over 80! Guess it's going to be like this for the next week or so. Mom got the portable A/C out and Ian and Jennifer spent the entire evening on the sofa watching a silly show on HULU about people racing around the world. It thought it was pretty boring and nothing was blowing up either!!
When mom and Ian came up here to look for a place to live, about 20 years ago, they were having a heat wave and mom thought they were all being too dramatic. They lived in Mojave at the time and it would be 122 by 10am! Now mom understands! The cool weather was a huge selling point when they were looking for a place to move to! Dad was already working up here at the time. Just like with the snow, the heat happens up here every few years.
Mom is going to drive Jennifer down to her dad's house tomorrow so I am going to wish you a safe and Happy 4th today in case we don't have time for notes tomorrow. Mom is working through the weekend but Ian is off so he'll be here to take care of me and Merlin. Neither of us are bothered by fireworks but mom would never leave us alone anyway.
The gardeners are here now and trimming all the bushes. I guess they wanted to get an early start so they don't have to be doing it when it gets to be a billion degrees again!hehehe
Have a fabulous day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I have had a nice day just hanging out with mom!
Well I have 5 new cousins! They are all canaries! Mom's sister took them in after their previous people decided to move to Eastern Washington and did not want to take them along. It's really not a very far move so I have no idea why they decided to let them go. There are 2 brown ones, a boy and a girl, and 3 yellow ones, 2 girls, 1 boy.
When mom's sister got them she saw that one of the little brown ones is sitting on a nest with 3 eggs! Guess that means I'll be having 3 more new cousins pretty soon. Mom's sister asked mom if she would like to have some canaries but mom doesn't know where we would put them and keep them safe from Merlin. Mom's sister has a second bedroom where the budgies and canaries live to keep them safe from her cat. I haven't seen a picture of them yet but I hope to soon.
We have had 8 days of temps over 85. We usually only have 10 for the entire year and it's only July 1st! Guess the weather channel was correct and it's going to be a hot summer here. I have been keeping cool by taking lots of showers. It helps with my molting too!
Enjoy the evening and I hope it is lots of fun!

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you are having a great day! It's nice here this morning and I'm snacking on some apples and almonds.
They opened up the firework stands yesterday so of course people were blowing them up last night. I think this is going to be going on for the rest of the week. You can actually buy fireworks up here year round because they sell them at the Indian Reservations. They are asking people not to blow them up this year because it's been dry and they are afraid of fires. I don't think anyone listened. Good thing for me is that they are not allowed in our complex. The noise doesn't bother me and I like the pretty colors it makes but it's nice not to have to worry about anything catching on fire.
Mom has one more night and then we have our weekend! I do not know what is planned but I hope we can watch a movie and have some popcorn! Popcorn by itself would be nice too!
Enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you had a great day. We had a quiet kind of day. Mom had some running around to do and then we had to get dad ready to go back out on the road. Mom grabbed all his stuff and put it on the dining room table so he wouldn't forget anything.
Once again we would like to thank every bird for their kind notes! We hope we can get more birdsonal notes done soon.
Mom went by and got Mandy's paw print from the vet today. It's just beautiful. She is going to get a shadow box and put it in there. That should keep it safe.
Mom is doing some rearranging also. We are just trying to keep busy and find our new normal.
Merlin has decided to be my best friend now. None of us realized how much he would miss Mandy. He has been trying to sleep by my play cage but I got down to the bottom and tried to bite him! He gets locked in the bedroom when mom leaves the house because she doesn't trust him or me!hehehehe
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! As some of you know, we lost Mandy yesterday. It's been so hard not having her here. She wasn't there to get me out of my night cage and I had no one to share my toast with.
She was ready to go. Mom never understood that until yesterday. When mom got home Merlin was curled up next to her with his head on her shoulder. Mandy had quit eating on Sunday and when mom sat down next to her yesterday morning she knew it was time. It was very peaceful and the vets office were so kind. They did a paw print on a clay heart for us as a memorial.
We are working on a new normal around here. It's still seems so strange not to see her on her blanket in front of my play cage.
Thank you all for your kind notes. We appreciate it so very much.
Enjoy the day!

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you are having a great day!
We didn't get to watch a movie because dad was watching a show about making over bars! The man on that show yells a lot and there are tons of beeps when he is talking. I don't think that is a good thing! Dad got bored with it but iw as too late to watch a movie by then. Mom says we will find something and watch it early on Friday since she working.
Ian came out of the bathroom this morning and he had shaved his head!!! I let out a very loud "wooger" and got onto my corner perch. He was bald on the top and decided he would just shave off the hair and see if he likes it that way. He says it will grow back if he doesn't! It sure was a shock to me but I started laughing when he came to say hello to me!
The lady downstairs from us has a very old cat. She says it has dementia now and won't come in the house. It sits under my bedroom window and howls which gets Merlin up there and he starts howling too! Last evening Merlin was up there howling and dad said he would get him. He called to mom and said she had to see this! Mom looks out the window and there is an orange cat in my tree! It's not the one from downstairs. The cat kept climbing higher to get to Merlin so mom took Merlin out of the room and told the cat to get down. It climbed all the way to the top of the tree and got on the roof! It went to the other side of the building and climbed down.
Mom has seen the cat before and really doesn't like that the people let it out. There are lots of wild birds outside and since that cat is not afraid of heights, it needs to be kept inside so it can't get the birds! We live on a 6 lane road so it's not safe for the cat either! Sometimes Humans are so dumb!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you are having a great day! It's been busy around here with drawer cleaning. Mom had to go buy more drawer liner. I've been doing my part by yelling and making a fuss when she is out of the room! I am the bird so it's my job to make lots of noise!
Mom is looking for new placemats but couldn't find any she liked. She is going to try Bed, Bath and Beyond tomorrow and see if there is something she likes there. Dad spilled something on the ones we had and destroyed them! We have had them for a long time so it was probably time to get some new ones anyway.
Since mom is off tonight instead of Friday night, we will do our movie night tonight. Don't know what we are going to watch but there will be snacks so you know I'll be there. She wanted to get Jupiter Ascending but it's not at the Redbox yet. We'll find something we like!
Enjoy your evening and I hope it's perfect!

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you had a great day! It's been a crazy week here. Mom has had way too much running around to do but that's the way it is when dad is home.
He went clothes shopping with mom on Sunday. He gave her a gift card for Christmas. Yep! It's June. Mom is just not crazy about clothes shopping. She got some new jeans and one shirt. Dad kept suggesting shirts but mom didn't like them. She did get a pair of pink Converse All Stars! Now she likes those! They were gone for 2 hours. Guess they stopped and got some breakfast too.
Mandy had a couple of episodes but it turns out it's muscle spasms not seizures. Mom does range of motion exercises on her everyday to help keep the muscles going as long as possible but it's not a cure. She is still eating and gets so excited when mom gets home so no change there.
I hope you have a wonderful evening and know that I'm thinking about you even if I don't get around everyday!

  Hi Miss Ronnie!
“Hi Every Birdie! Today we are headed to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. We are going to be going to Dollywood and Dollywood’s Splash Country, and I think we are going to have a lot of fun! Let’s head on over to Splash Country!” They arrive at the water park, and once inside, Jester asks them what they want to do first. Hulk and Cappy say that they should do a water slide, so they head over to Mountain Scream. At the top, they choose the quadruple-drop slide to go down, one by one, they all slide down. The slide was super fun! Next they head to the Big Bear Plunge, a white water rafting adventure ride. They load into large rafts in groups of 5. Jester shares his tube with Jolie, Norman, Kiddo, and Panther. They have tons of fun on the raft ride! After, Tango suggests that they go and do the Downbound Float Trip. So they head over to do that, and all sit in tubes and float down the river. It is very fun and relaxing. Next they head over to RiverRush, which is a water coaster. They load into long tubes in groups of 4, and ride the water coaster. They have lots of fun! After a few more slides, and a trip to the Cascades, they dry off, and head over to Dollywood. Once they arrive, they decide to go on the Shooting Star Drop Tower. They load on the ride, and then it slowly goes up, and then drops back down! Next, they go on the Sky Rider and Mystery Mine. After, Queen Sweetie asks if they can go see the Smokey Mountain String Band. They go see the show, and really enjoy the music! After the show, Picabo asks if they can go on the Tennessee Tornado. Jester is all for it, so they head over to the coaster. It is thrilling; they go down a 128-foot drop at 70mph! Next they go on the Wonder Wheel, and enjoy the view from the top. They do plenty more rides; they go on Thunderhead, the Village Carousel, Lemon Twist, and Dizzy Disk. They also see shows! They see Kingdom Heirs, Heartsong, and the Dreamland Drive-In. They have tons of fun! After, they eat dinner at the Backstage Restaurant, and then head to the DreamMore Resort. They play some card games and talk about their fun day before heading to bed. – Thanks so much for voting! See you tomorrow! Hugs, Jester

  Hi Miss Ronnie!
“Hi Guys! Today, we are going to Washington, DC. Our first stop is going to be the Smithsonian, let’s go!” The birds all hop on a subway that takes them to the center of DC. Once they get off the subway, they walk to the Smithsonian. The building is huge! They enter the building, and the first thing they see is a beautiful statue of an African Elephant. They also see a big pendulum that is so perfectly balanced that it stays in motion constantly. They see the big dinosaur skeletons, which Falco, Peppino, and Willie really enjoy. They go to the gems and minerals exhibit, and see the Hope Diamond. It is supposedly cursed! Bad things happened to all the people who owned it, but apparently being in the museum broke the curse. They visit the Hall of Human Origins and the Sant Ocean Hall. They explore a bit more, before heading off to the Jefferson Memorial. In the memorial, they see the 19-foot statue of Thomas Jefferson, and excerpts from the Declaration of Independence. Next they head to the Lincoln Memorial. It features a solitary, 19-foot-tall statue of Abraham Lincoln sitting in contemplation, which is flanked on both side chambers with inscriptions of Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address and arguably his most famous speech, the Gettysburg Address. When they are finished there, they pick out a place for dinner. After dinner, they hop back on the subway and head to their hotel. They stay at the famous old Biltmore Hotel. Once in the hotel, they all gather together. “I hope you all had a great time today! There is still quite a bit more to do, so we are going to be seeing some more of DC tomorrow. So get some rest tonight, because we are going to have more fun tomorrow!” – Thanks so much for voting for me! I love you guys! See you tomorrow! Hugs, Jester

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you had a good day! It's been a very busy week here and today was no different. There always seems to be so much cleaning to do!
Mom, Ian and Jennifer loved Jurassic World. Mom wants to see Inside Out and Minions too but the others didn't seem interested. Mom will just go by herself if they don't want to go!
Mom did the marketing today and dad went with her. Not a good thing because dad just grabs stuff and never looks at the price! They did buy us a new food processor so we shall have grated carrots once again! The old one had a part that broke and Kitchen Aid does not make the model mom has anymore so we got a new one! This one is a Black & Decker since mom is mad at Kitchen Aid for not making replacement parts on a very expensive food processor!
I hope the evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It was very pretty here and not too hot! It's suppose to get hot this weekend but it probably won't be too bad. There are big trees outside my bedroom window and it stays nice and cool in there.
Mom took a nap when she got home this morning. She took Jennifer to work and then went to the market and got some rice for us to share for lunch! It was good! Tomorrow she is taking Jennifer down to her dad's house. He has his heart valve replacement surgery yesterday and it all went great. He'll be out of it for a while and has to spend about 5 days in the hospital. Jennifer's youngest sister is up from Florida so Jennifer will get to see her.
After that mom will be home and we will have our weekend! We are still working on drawers and closets but there will be time for us to just hang out, which I love!
Does your mom get to wear shorts to work? Mom's store allows it from May to September. Lots of people are already wearing them.
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Miss Ronnie~
I hope you are having a good day! It is a wet, windy and cool day here in the Northwest. It's going to be like this for the next few days and then Summer is coming back! I'm enjoying it.
Not much going on around here. We have the kitchen to clean up but that is an everyday thing. The 12 inches between the sink and the dishwasher seems to be too far for some people around here!hahahahahaha I will of course supervise and give mom my opinions on how the job should be done. She would be lost without me you know!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's perfect!
