  Hello Tooth~
I hope you are having the most wonderful Easter ever! Things got busy around here so I have to keep it short today!
We are cooking a ham but we are not really going to have a sit down dinner since mom and Ian are working. Dad is in Montana somewhere! Everyone will eat when they can!

Mom finally got herself an MP3 player. Her's broke months ago and she just can't stand the "Leisure Suit Larry Lounge" music anymore! She found all the music files and started loading songs on the MP3 but when she looked, the songs were not there! It took my genius mom about half and hour to realize that Jennifer had her MP3 player plugged in also so mom put all that music on Jennifer's MP3 player! Boy is she going to be surprised!hahahahahahaha Mom is such a dork!!

Happy Easter!!

  Hi ya Tooth~
I hope you are having a great day! Absolutely nothing of interest going on in my world but I did want to come by and say hello!
We have been doing more spring cleaning this week and it's really not very exciting at all!! Mom scrubbed the sliding glass door and the screen! It's so bright and pretty and I have an excellent view of the flags out in front of the complex! It's always windy around here so they are always flapping! They have red tulips on the flags and I enjoy watching them wave in the wind!
I hope you are enjoying your day and that window cleaning is not the most exciting thing going on in your life! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I hope you are having a great day! It's very pretty here! A real spring day!
Mom was off last night and she'll be off again on Friday. She couldn't get two days off in a row this week because there is too much work. It's clearance week plus they added a special weekend ad. The store is having it's Fuschia event this weekend so there will be special sales to go along with it. It's an annual event and everyone looks forward to it. They have geranium and fuschia starts for sale and if you bring your own pot the garden staff will plant them for you. Hanging baskets are a big thing up here so by next week you will be seeing them everywhere.
I have spent the morning trying to keep Merlin away from mom! He had his outside on the balcony time and play with the ribbon time but he is trying to butt into my climb on mom time! I told him he needs to go grab a nap until I'm ready for my apple and then he can jump up on the computer desk again!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's a spectacular day!

  Doves As Pets
INTRODUCTION

Doves are gentle birds that are hardy. They are quiet birds, have a peaceful nature, and don't require as much complicated care as other species of birds. This makes them a good pet for the beginner.
Diamond doves are even good pets for young children as long as an adult supervises the care.
Since doves are quiet birds, they are good to keep in apartments where you may not be able to keep a noisy parrot.

Doves can be kept as single pets or in pairs but they do better in pairs. If you keep a single dove be prepared to give it lots of attention and interaction.

I hope you are having a fabulous day! I am having a late start today. Mom gave a friend a ride home this morning and he lives in the middle of nowhere!! Really! The city he lives in is called Kapowsin. There are only about 300 people who live there. Lots of horese and cows and roads that are unpaved! Mom had to drive very slowly because there are tons of holes all along the roads! It's only half an hour away but it's a whole different world out there! I could scream and scream and no one would notice! Cool!hahahahahaha
Enjoy your Sunday and I hope it's just spectacular!

  HI TOOTH
Cori and Boo Boo both do a short HAPPY HUMPDAY dance before the presentation!

people have always been fascinated by the huge migrating flocks of Cranes. it was believed that Cranes carried small birds on their backs during their migratory travels over large bodies of water. it was believed the reason the Crances did this was that they enjoyed listening to the songs of the small birds.. this belief was held by the egyptians, the bedouins and the the Crow indians.the arawak indians pf venezuela believed tobacco was brought to them by a hummingbird who stole it from triniada and rode on the back of a crane to bring it to south america. it was believed that cranes swallowed stones to keep the wind from blowing them off course during their long migratory flights. upon arrival they would expel the stones. the stones were said to hold magical powers. if one held the stone they would find gold. also the stones were said to warn of impending danger.

The Whooping Crane is named for its call, which can be heard over great distances thanks to the bird’s extra-long trachea, which coils around its breastbone twice like a French horn. Like other cranes, the Whooper is noisy; the word “crane” comes from the Anglo-Saxon "cran," which means "to cry out."
The tallest flying bird in North America, Whooping Cranes measure up to five feet tall with a seven-to eight-foot wingspan. The species also has another distinction: It is the rarest crane in the world. Several decades ago, it almost disappeared forever due to habitat loss and hunting.
Still extremely rare, Whooping Cranes are on the WatchList and protected as an endangered species. Sadly, up to one-quarter of all Whoopers are shot and killed.
Whooping Cranes are one of our country’s most majestic birds—and also one of our most endangered. Though the species once ranged throughout the Great Plains and Gulf Coast regions, the Whooping Crane population was decimated by hunting and habitat loss, and only 16 birds remained in 1941.
Today, a major captive-breeding effort has helped the population rebound to nearly 600 individuals. But these birds are still under threat. A mated pair of Whooping Cranes was recently shot at a crawfish pond in Louisiana. Sadly, both have died from their injuries. Still worse, this is not unusual: Nearly one-quarter of all Whooping Crane deaths are caused by illegal shooting.
Whooping Cranes deserve the full protection of the law.

I hope you are having a great day! Spring has sprung up here. We have had a bit of rain but the temps have been near 60 and the cotton wood trees are bright pink and the frogs are delivering me joyous noise every single night! Now normally I don't really like hearing those hundreds of frogs but since they are announcing spring, I will put up with them!
Mom went out to the market for a while and she is going to hit the library soon. New books for Sugar! YAY!!! We will get some dinner done and then I hope we can have more popcorn and watch another movie.
You enjoy your evening! I hope it's just perfect!

  Hello Tooth~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. I'm getting some computer time this morning! It's been way to busy around here lately and I just don't like it!
Yesterday we took a break in the morning and watched Catching Fire. I really like it! Lots of action and you know I love action movies!
Today we are getting a bit of cooking done and getting mom ready to start her work week. She is going in an hour early tonight since I have been told we are losing an hour tonight! I really don't see any reason that the time has to change! It seems to be working just fine the way it is!
Mom went to Petco to get my Higgins Sunburst and they are out of it again! They say the warehouse is out of it so there is nothing they can do. She got me some Higgins Safflower Gold and it sort of looks and smells the same to me. There are no sunflower seeds in it but that is okay with me! It's only part of what I eat everyday so as long as she keeps a big supply of apples I will be a happy zon!
Spring is inching ever closer and that is making the frog outside my window go crazy! It started with just a few of them but last night it sounded like there were about a thousand of them out there! As long as they are here to announce spring I suppose I can put up with them!
I do hope you enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug as I waddle off!

Boo Boo holds up her wings before Cori gives her talk. she implores every birdie to please not take pictures of Cori using any type of flash because bright lights scare Cori.
The United Nations has declared today as World Wildlife Day, coinciding with the signing of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in Washington, D.C. on March 3, 1973.
World Wildlife Day provides a strong opportunity for the global conservation community to speak with a unified voice and declare that there is no excuse for the indiscriminate killing, selling, or captivity of wild animals.
march 3rd. todays topic WORDS FROM BIRDS:
1) BIRD IN THE HAND IS WORTH TWO IN THE BUSH: better to cherish what we have than to look longingly at things that are beyond our reach
2) LIKE WATER OFF OF A DUCKS BACK: Let everyday annoyances leave us as quickly as water slides off the well oiled feathers of a duck
3) BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER: most of the time time. even in winter when large gatherings of flocks of ducks and geese are visible most stay in groups of their own species.
4) EAGLE-EYED: self explanatory
5) EATS LIKE A BIRD: if you did you would be very obese since most birds consume up to 20 percent of their body weight daily
6) HAPPY AS A LARK: refers to the birds exuberant song flight. larks have bad days
when troubles come home to roost gong them 7) SOMETHING TO GROUSE ABOUT
8) MAD AS A LOON: loons aren't mad but their call sure sounds that way
9) SWAN SONG: a belief that the mute swan silent all its life gives out a single song just before it is about to die
10) WISE AS AN OWL: HOO are we to say they are not wise!

How are u sweetie? Well, it looks like luck is on our side today! Our county was supposed to get 10 plus inches of snow from late Saturday night thru Monday 1pm, but it's been down graded to 3-6 inches...tho it's snowing pretty good right now! Luckily, it looks like the g-kids will have a 2 he delay instead of A cancellation...all snow days have been used & any more missed days must be made up at end of school year.
Today, we will finish the Parrot's Bill of Rights.

A PARROT'S BILL OF RIGHTS (Pt 2)
7. PLEASE DON'T PUNISH ME.
Just as I don't always understand ur peculiarities, u may not understand mine. I don't TRY to get in trouble - remember...a house is NOT the jungle. If I DO screw up, don't yell at me & NEVER hit me! I have very sensitive ears & I may never trust u again if u strike me. Hands are sometimes scary things to us. (Why in the world would u not be zygodactylous like us?) Even more importantly, we don't learn by punishment. We are gentle creatures who only strike back to protect ourselves; we learn through patience & love.
8. SPEAK MY "LANGUAGE".
I know u get upset with me when I knock over my water bowl, throw food, scream or pluck my feathers. I don't do these to annoy u - I am probably trying to tell u something (perhaps that I am hurting, lonely, or sad). Learn to speak MY (body) language. Remember that I, alone of all creatures on this planet, learn to speak yours!
9. SEE ME AS AN INDIVIDUAL.
I am a unique & feeling being. No two of us are alike. Please don't be disappointed in me if I don't talk like u wanted, or can't do the tricks that ur friend's parrot can do. But if u pay close attention to me (& I always empathize with u, whether u know it or not), I will show u a unique being who will give u so much more than talking & playing. Give me a chance to show u who I am; I think you'll find the effort worth it. And remember - I am NOT an ornament; I DO NOT enhance ANY living room decor. And I am NOT a status symbol - if u use me as such, I might nip at your turned-up nose!
10. SHARE YOUR LOVE WITH ME.
Above all, PLEASE remember that u are my Special Person. I put all my trust & faith in u. We parrots are used to being monogamous (no bar-hopping for us!) So please don't go away for long periods or give me away. That would be a sadness from which I may never recover.
If that seems to be asking a lot, remember - u could have learned about my needs BEFORE bringing me home. Even having a baby or taking a new job isn't a fair reason - you made a commitment to me FIRST! And if u think that u must leave me because u might die, provide for me forever after u leave. I may live to a ripe old age but I can't provide for myself. Remember I'm in a small cage amongst people who are NOT of my blood.
AWE SHUCKS! Blog too long & cut off! Will finish last part tomorrow & continue with first aid - poisoning & toxicity. See u tomorrow sweetie!
Love & a vote

Today is the first of March and in our neck of the woods it is coming in like a lion so hopefully it will end like a lamb. I hope i can count on you for your support and vote during my campaign run this March. i will be talking about a variety of things that you will find somewhat interesting from protecting the environment to various oddities of birds and animals.
First on my campaign topic is "What is a Group of Monkeys Called?" They are called a CONGRESS and this is what is governing our country today. Hopefully you've heard about how bad fracking is, and tar sands oil is just as disastrous for our water and our climate. For every barrel of crude tar sands oil produced, three barrels of fresh water are used to extract it. Most of this water is so polluted afterward that it can only be stored in manmade ponds, where it can contaminate local waterways with chemicals like ammonia and cyanide.

The pipeline itself threatens every community it passes through, as well as the many major rivers it crosses in the United States. Building this massive piece of infrastructure could lead to devastating oil spills that would be virtually impossible to clean up, contaminating our fresh water for years to come. Tell President Obama: don't make polluted water and dirty energy your legacy!

The truth of the matter is, our country desperately needs to make the transition to renewable energy if we hope to protect our planet from climate change.

The oil industry, which has been trying to push Keystone XL through approval for years, thought this pipeline was a done deal. But strong opposition in the environmental community has made this a nationally contentious issue, and we can't let up now!

How are u sweetie? Congrats to my BBFF Snowflake for winning BOTM! She will be an amazing queen!

A PARROT'S BILL OF RIGHTS. by Stewart A. Metz, M.D.
1. GET TO KNOW ABOUT PARROTS BEFORE U BRING ME HOME.
I am NOT a domesticated pet like a dog or cat. I still have the spirit of the jungle in me. I have special needs, which u may find it hard to fill. Please don't learn these too late for my well-being. And please don't acquire one of my cousins wild from the jungle...it will jeopardize his survival & well-being, & that won't be a party for u either!
2. GIVE ME THE LARGEST HOME POSSIBLE.
I am used to flying through rainforests or savannahs. I have given up this great gift for ur pleasure. At the very least, give me enough room to flap my wings & exercise. And o need toys for my amusement & wood to chew...otherwise, I might confuse ur home with the forest & its trees.
3. GIVE ME A NUTRITIOUS DIET.
I need a wide variety of fresh & nutritious foods, even if they take time to prepare. I cannot survive on seed alone. Take time to learn what mynneeds are.
4. LET ME HAVE A "SOCIAL LIFE".
I am a gregarious flock animal...but I am NOT one of u. I need lots of socialization to learn how to act with u, & with my siblings. I also need to have adequate quality time with u every day - no matter what it schedule or other needs are. I am a living, feeling creature. Above all, I need to be able to have complete trust in u, & count on ur predictability in looking after me - EVERY DAY.
5. LET ME BE CLEAN.
I may like to drop food or even throw it, but I need meticulous cleanliness to be healthy. My skin itches without frequent showers, the barbs of my feathers won't seal if they become oily & worst of all, I may become ill if my food & water is not always sanitary.
6. I NEED MY OWN DOCTOR.
U may not understand my physiology & therefore u may not recognize it early on when I get sick. And it may be too late when u do, because I hide my illnesses (remember what I said about my being an animal of the jungle, where there are lots of predictors). And I need an avian vet - a specialisy (no HMOs for me please). If u can't afford one, perhaps u shouldn't have taken me home.
I will send u the 2nd part tomorrow. Have a great day sweetie!
Love & a vote

  Hello Tooth~
I hope you are having a great day. It's cloudy up here and the rain will start soon but that is the way it is suppose to be this time of the year. We did have 2 really nice days so I can't complain about a little liquid sunshine!

I think spring it pretty close now because the pigeons outside have moved from the front to the eaves over our balcony. They do that in the spring. Mom will be cleaning poop off the balcony now but she would never complain. It's nice to hear them cooing out there and mom says they live here too! Some of the neighbors complained last year and they did the power washing up on their balconies to chase them away. I think that is why they came over here because we don't say a word about them being there! Mom is use to cleaning up poop!

We are doing some cooking today and then mom will get her stuff ready for her workweek to start tonight. I really think weekends are just too short.

Enjoy your day and I do hope it's a great one! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

How are u sweetie? WOW, did this month fly by! I can't believe this is my last day as ur BOTM queen! But I'm very happy & excited for my dear friend Snowflake, who will be my successor! First thing tomorrow, I will hand over the castle keys, & take her by the wing & give her the grand tour of her new home for the month!
Tomorrow, I will send u the first part of A Parrot's Bill of Rights. It's like a parrot owners manual, short version, with a bit of comic relief added in! Today, I will finish A Parrot's Prayer. I have to warn u, the second part is as heartbreaking as the first, & will leave a lump in ur throat.

A PARROT'S PRAYER (cont.)
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all the macaws, cockatoos, amazons & conures that are stripped of their vocal cords for screaming; their sensitive beaks cut back to prevent biting.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all birds that end up for sale in pet shops or breeders like used merchandise, unwanted & frightened in strange surroundings with nothing more than the familiar sight of bars on a cage.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all the neglected birds that are sick with infections from filthy conditions & malnourishment that may never recover & know what it is like to feel healthy & be playful.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all the misconceived parrots who were beaten, stabbed, blinded & burned for just being a parrot.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For every african grey, cockatoo & macaw that punishes itself by maiming their bodies & plucking their feathers & for those who have lost all spirit of life & sway their head low from side to side slowly into insanity.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
We ask humbly of you dear Lord to look upon all of your magnificent feather creations, protect them from evil & harm caused by man & to bring forth an awakening in the human heart & make it a kinder, gentler world for all captive birds.
AMEN.
Written by Sally Brooks

Every time mom reads this, her eyes fill with tears & she holds me a little closer & gives me extra kisses. As much as she loves me, she just can't imagine people being so despicable to do these things to these wondrous & magnificent creatures! I know that everybirdy's moms feel the same way...especially the moms that have rehomed birds and rescues, who have given a home to broken & battered birds...& God bless each one of you! I hope u have a great day, & I'll see u tomorrow sweetie!
Love & a vote
Queen TiaMaria

Mom would like to thank everybirdy for their encouragement & support for her quitting smoking...it really means a lot to her! She has been "quitting" for the last year or so with not much success! She is sooooo happy that the Lord took away withdrawal torture! Mom could never quit before coz she could never make it past the 3 weeks of torturous withdrawal symptoms. But this time she had no physical withdrawal at all...which is truly a blessing from God!

Wow we had a fun time !!!
We had all kinds of different music and lots of concerts, such as Hard rock, Motown, country, reggae ,and much more.
We had lots of places to eat such as the hard rock café, an ice-cream parlor and lots more.

There was a make over tent, a dressing room, and a feather stylist for makeovers! And we had a musical movie !!!

My favorite concert we put on was in honor and loving memories of all our BC Angels. Every birdie picked out their own songs and sang to the highest of the high all the way up to rainbow bridge so all the BC Angels could hear us.
The funniest time is when Pearl and Silver put on a country gig. Us girls spiked the beans with J&D. The band of brothers, Panther, Raffi, Tweety, Cookie, Jedi and Spot tooted all night long. They passed out under the table. Ms.BB brought two cases of air freshener to clear out the smell, hee, hee...
Our last two days ended with a concert...The battle of the bands...The band of brothers against The KB rocker chicks.(Us girls)...
Good memories, fun and music at the kissing booth.

Thank you for your votes. Much love to you all.

  Hi Tooth
Mom's daughter tagged her in some pics from the restaurant. Want to hear something really weird? They topped some of the dishes with fish flakes (which mom was joking was goldfish food). The flakes kept moving! As long as the food was hot, those things kept wiggling around as if they were alive! Weird, huh?
So the lovies chew ladders? So does Willie. He loves chewing the rungs off them.
Congratulations to the Warriors on their victory yesterday! Good game, everybirdie.
Everybirdie is concerned about Polly, which makes mom's heart feel so good. I don't know why Polly deserves such a fuss, but I'll deal with it. Polly is actually trying to walk a little on her bad leg today. She surprised mom by going down the step to the front walk when mom opened the door to take her out to potty. She walked in the snow out to the street, then back again. She is eating and drinking now, so that's a relief for mom. She wasn't so worried about the eating as the drinking. She didn't want the poor little doggie to get dehydrated. Polly is still getting ice, meds, and some passive range of motion exercises, and seems to be doing well.
Mom had a tour at the museum this morning, and when she left to come back home, there was a whiteout. For those of you who don't live in the snow, a whiteout is when it's snowing so hard you can't see in front of you. Anyway, she cleaned off the car, drove home slowly, but got here safely. We are just waiting for spring! I agree with Cookie, we should picket Mother Nature!
I hope you are warm and dry today, Here's a hug, Falco

  Hi, Tooth
Would have to say that our mom's BIL's are a strange breed as well. So long as she doesn't have to live with any of 'em it's all good, heehee.

The new floor was installed recently in skinsis room to replace the ancient carpet. It is supposed to be hickory. Came in planks that were cut to fit the pattern the contractor was doing. Entire project took about a week including moving everything out, removing the carpet, putting the floor in and moving everything back. Furball was a bit confused since skinsis had to be moved into the adjoining room for the week.

It rained quite a bit yesterday. Haven't seen any totals yet, but it was more than the previous storm. Hopefully the mountain areas got lots of snow as much of our water supply comes from that.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hey Toother !
Yesterday's snow turned into a non-event :) Although it looked iffy around noontime when it started coming down really hard and blowing all over . . . but then an hour later it was gone and the sun was back out :) Now we're waiting for Sunday into Monday - six to eight more inches :( UGH ! So I guess March is coming in like a lion -


My Laura is staying right down the street house-sitting (and budgie, bunny and fish sitting) so she'll be stopping over a few times over the weekend ! Hip hip hooray ! Even better ? It's her birthday on Saturday so I'll be busy making her confetti the next couple days ! Have a good day ! Love to all - Cookie

Sorry i haven't been around to chat much this week! Our interent for some reason wouldn't let us on BC and we kept getting messages about no server! Mom has tried each day at different times and finally tonite, we got on again like magic!
The baby lovebirds started flying outside the cage this week. They are so much fun and there are five of them flying now. Dad built a new cage for the other family of parents and their four babies who haven't started to fly yet.
On a sad note, mom found a lovebird in the outside aviary this morning who had crossed the RB during the nite. We don't know why but the poor lovey appeared not in distress. Some of the rescues, well, we don't know how old they are. So mom had a funeral in the garden for the lovebird and now he is flying free in the RB.
It is hot here. My parronts went to see a movie with Stallone and DeNiro in it today and they saw Saving Mr. Banks this week too. Tomorrow we'll be outside since mom will stay home with us all day on the porch!
Hope your snow is gone and its getting warmer up there! Big hugs!

  Hi QM Toothalicious, from Jen Lynn
The Pearl is making good speed heading into the Panama Canal, so far no major glitches, but Capt Sam and I are ever vigilant for signs of trouble! I got to get back to the Pearl, see ya onboard! Bitter cold for us the next four days, at very least, and more snow Friday, Saturday, and Sunday! Dad is certain the budget payments for the gas and electric bill will go up! We refuse to let this awful Winter affect us in a negative way, we continue doing all the things we always do in the Winter time! I hope things at your home is going nicely for you today, give my love to all in your home, see ya tomorrow...

Love from Jenny Lynn, Ship's Security

  Hello Tooth~
I hope you are having a great day! We are having what we in the Northwest call a "Trick the Tourist" kind of day! It's a day where the sky is blue and there are just a few white puffy clouds. Not real warm but you can't tell what the temps are from a picture! The tourist board runs out and takes pictures down at the waterfront to get people to come visit Washington! They are in for a huge surprise when they get here and it's raining for 3 weeks straight!
OH! I love it! So sneaky!hehehehehehe
Mom found a really cool screensaver of an amazon! The background is green and there is a really handsome amazon peaking at me from the right bottom corner! I have named him Wilbur and he is my computer buddy! She had to go get a new screensaver after she reloaded the programs!
The computer is working well and mom found a virus program, downloaded it and is running it every day! I just hope this never happens again!! It sure did take mom a long time to figure it all out but hey! She did it! I must say that I'm impressed!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's an awesome one!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar

  Morning Tooth !
Well, today is a lock up day for me - and a long one to boot ! Not only does mom have school all day, but today is her drama club ! No actors though - the set crew is painting posters of many of Shakespeare's plays (the play she's doing is cute - many of Shakespeare's characters are together in group therapy !) The kids are enjoying it and mom likes that it exposes them to Shakespeare in a more fun way than she was ! Plus working with the junior high is a nice break from 4th grade !

Luckily it looks like tomorrow's storm will be a non-event ! Of course the long range for Saturday is showing another blip on the radar . . . but, the grackles are back ! So spring has to come ! ! ! Eventually . . .

Have a good day ! love Cookie

You look so comfy on your mom's head. I like your mom's plants, they are doing really well. Hopefully it will warm up soon so my mom can start gardening outdoor since her plants are not in very good shape by now after stayed indoor for the whole winter. Those lemons are big for the small plant.

Come visit me, lingo.

V4U today. It sure got us spoiled having a sunny weekend, haven't had a sunny weekend in months. But of course the cloudy and freezing cold weather is coming back again soon. At least we all know that spring is right around the corner, hopefully most of the winter is behind us now. Of course it can still get very cold here even through the middle of May, but we'll try to think positively. LOL :) Have a good day. From, Mayo

Yeah, I was silent at the Milonga. Mom had a really bad asthma and allergy day. She was in bed all day and when we finally got on the puter, party was over. Bummer! I had Sam sing a song for Scoober. It was the Bob Marley song.
Don't you think that our snow looks like good fort snow? Just don't fall down or you won't be found until May!!!
My parronts keep a box of old sheets and towels to cover the plants so they don't freeze. They even announce it on our local news to cover your plants.
Today we hit the big number … 170 inches of snow for the season … so far! We are still waiting to see that shiny thing in the sky. I did get to have a new toy today. Mom felt bad about me missing the Milonga. I’m enjoying myself chewing it up!
Hugs
