  Heya, Mayo (and Dandy and Marigold, too!)
Holy moley, the Castle is so much fun when you are King of the Day, that is for sure! And have some cake, too! Lizzie had a cake ready for me in no time--I think I am gonna be waddling for a few days, cuz I ate to my hearts content!

It was a day for a nap here. Grey and rainy. Mom and I took one this morning, then she brought out the sucking machine. I rode along on her shoulder so I could supervise! If I am on her, I am not afraid of that old noise maker!

Have a super rest of the day! Wing hugs comin' atcha!

Your buddy,

  Hi ya Cuz~
I hope you had a great day too! It got cloudy and cooler here today so I don't think anyone is missing the pool. They painted it today and then put the lights and the filter covers back on. It is now ready for water when it dries.
Mom has to drive Jennifer down to her dads house tomorrow. The doctors have been checking him ever since he has the heart attack and found he has a leaky heart valve. He is going to have to have surgery to fix it and Jennifer is worried. Mom thinks it will be okay since they do so many of those kinds of surgeries. They haven't scheduled it yet but we keep him in our prayers everyday.
Mom went over to Costco today and it was very crowded. They had all the registers open so it really didn't take long to get out of there. She brought back some lovely blueberry muffins and Mandy, Merlin and I shared one! Yes, the cat likes blueberry muffins!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi ya Cuz~
I hope you had a great day. Mine was pretty good. Mom was busy with chores and spent some time looking for recipes for veggies. She found some really great ones so it as time well spent.
The pool is still empty. The lights from the bottom are sitting along side it. They plastered it so I think now they have to smooth it out again and then paint it blue again. It was warm here today so I think everyone is anxious for that pool to be open!
I hope your evening is just perfect!

  Hi ya Cuz~
I hope you are having a fun day!
The guys are still over there fixing the pool so I still don't know how they are going to fill it. I hope they do it soon because I really want to know! It's funny how we never really paid attention to it before. You can tell that no one here goes swimming! It wasn't a selling point when we rented our apartment. They allowed big dogs and had dog parks so they were a winner as far as we were concerned. The rules have changed since we moved in. They still allow big dogs but I guess they have to okay it first. Same with exotics, which is me! They said we are grandfathered in so it doesn't affect us!
I hope you have the most wonderful day ever!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  HI ya Cuz~
I hope you are having a great Sunday! Isn't it exciting that there may be a triple crown winner this year! Hasn't been one for a very long time!
My Governor declared a Drought Emergency for the entire state this weekend. I'm not having a drought but over on the other side of the mountain they are. Not enough snow this year to fill up the lakes and rivers over there!
They have already decided to use the water on the crops that would be too hard to replant, like pears and apple groves. They are even talking about catching the salmon, putting them in tank trucks and driving them to the spawning grounds! I'd love to see that! At least they are planning ahead. We are going to figure out how we can conserve around the house. Mom found out that using the dishwasher is more efficient than hand washing and that paper plate are not recyclable! Bummer!
I hope you enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope your day was perfect! Yesterday I was not able to get on BC when mom had time to do my notes! She cleaned in the morning and said we could get notes done when she was done! Well, that turned out to be a bad idea!!!hahahahaha
We had rain this morning but it cleared up and turned out to be a very nice day. We even opened the window! Mom got a pizza for dinner and I had 2 pieces of crust!
Mandy has been moving around more the last 2 days and seems to enjoy hanging out in front of my cage. That's good news!
Tonight we are watching a movie and getting my notes done before I hit the night cage. It's our weekend and we are going to enjoy every minute of it!!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Mayo
mom can't complain about the hot weather because she hates the cold but it went from cold to hot with only a few days of nice spring weather. its been almost 90 at our house these last few days. mom gave me a good shower today and then took me outside and i was dry in no time at all. its the first time mom didn't have to blow dry me. it didn't rain at our house and its really getting pretty dry but tonight the thunder storms rolled in and we finally got some rain and its cooled off a bit. we also have ibirds outside that sing all night long. mom went outside to check and see why they are singing but couldn't find any reason. its strange to hear them when its pitch black outside. tonight they aren't singing because of the rain.

Ever wonder about towns where our friend's live? Well, not to worry, cause I did the research on Cappys little burg.

I didn't realize Luther, OK was just a small dot on the map. Gotta be careful what you do, Cappy, cause everyone will know about it.

Luther is a town in Oklahoma County, Oklahoma, United States, and a part of the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area. The population was 612 at the 2000 census. RT

Thankfully the last wave of storms only brought rain to our area so we are still ok. We have a couple of days to relax before more storms roll in ... hopefully those will only bring rain as well. We will not complain about the rain even though some folks have been flooded out multiple times the rain should be taking care of our drought issues! Gotta run, Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.

Tell your mom Happy Mother's Day ! I'll help supervise mom finish the flower planting on the back deck later this morning. Then I'll wait patiently while the folks go see g'ma and take her out to eat . . . maybe they'll bring a birdie bag home ? Me and daddy got mom a new stainless steel garbage pail for the kitchen ! It's so shiny and she's wanted it for a while . . .

We were about 30 degrees colder here today, can you believe that one? Supposed to be a chilly spell with temps in the 50's. Maybe 60. Sigh.

Not much went on here today. Mom went shopping and came home. And snuggled and cuddled with me. Now that is what I call the best use of her time, don't you?

Mom is allergic to the black one, but she can't remember if that is a wasp or a hornet. She really swelled up when one stung her when she was a kid.

Just a quick visit today to remind everybirdy that the Derby Milonga is tonight, and although the gates open officially at 8PM EDT, you an always come early to visit the horsies. And Post time is 8:15.

And you will be happy to hear I finally got a sunbath today! Barely warm enough @ 69 degrees, but we did get some sun! Had to wait till 12:30 to get enough sunshine, but I sure did enjoy it while it lasted.

This morning is a dull grey morning and the highs for the day will be 67 while the lows will be 55.Its 54 right now with a sunless sky.Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and vacuumed our room,then she got dad his breakfast and started the coffee for him.We are hoping to get some out side time with Mom today but it doesn't look that way right now.Basically its going to be a quiet day here,with nothing interesting going on.We are glad to have Mom home all day with us today.Mom is hoping to get some of her work done today or at least try to catch up with some of it.She still has to change out her winter things for her summer things in her closet.It was so nice to see that you got some special things to eat to celebrate your special day with!We haven't had much in the way of rain here either and could sure use some as its getting really dry now!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and a vote for you too!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

Today mom went to a craft show at the high school and there was lots going on there. Even John Lege that has the birds was there. Mom didn’t stay long cause she wanted to get back home so I could get out for a sun bath before it got to hot. It was hot and Kiddo says a half hour is all that is needed for feather help so that is how long we stayed out then. “Friends are the umbrellas in the storms of life”.Left a vote for you ~~ Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)
