How my tiel and I got together was just a miracle. I had lost my first tiel in 98 and was hoping one would drop on my doorstep and in 2002 we were supposed to babysit him for his previous mommy and she passed away and her friend asked if we would keep him for our own. I was so happy! cause I needed a tiel to fill the hole my first tiel left. Of course my peach fronted conure arrived the day after he died but it was only a tiel that could fill up that hole. I love my conure because she makes me laugh and keeps me happy. I was even happier when Peepers came to fill that void, the void needed by another tiel. I became the owner when my mom asked me if I wanted to keep him and I was like heck ya, I love this tiel so much! I heard his previous mommy wanted to make sure he was in a loving home before she died and he sure is!.

Cinnamon Mutation Cockatiel

nutraberries,pa- sta,animal crackers,apple peels,

i like to hang out on the playpen with my 4 conure brothers/sister- s and my pesky lutino brother and on my mommys shoulder.

I dont like showers but mommy makes me go with her but hey at least im a clean boy!, when my brother Mario steals MY perch(Lutino Cockatiel),when i gotta be stuck in the cage when mommy goes to work cuz i like to hop onto the floor because she doesnt want me getting hurt,

I love my mommy cuz she takes real good care of me and gives me lots of loves, she says im a special boy cuz i eat with my foot like a parrot she takes me on car rides, walks on my neat neon yellow harness and leash which i hate but wearing that leash means going out so i gotta be a good boy for mommy and wear it,she likes to snuggle with me and i with her. for my birthday she makes me a special birdie cake topped with seeds cuz i only get pellets for my meals cuz she thinks pellets are alot more healthier for me than seeds and they taste good too! the fruity ones are my fave! im just soo happy she adopted me cuz im happy that i found her and made her soo happy again! me being left at her house was a miracle to her and to me too cuz i have 5 brothers/sister- s for company when mommy goes to work.

i like to eat with my foot like a parrot mommy thinks its soo COOL when i do that,I like to hold my foot up when i sing and she thinks thats soo CUTE!, mommy taught me to play dead, i just lay on my back in the palm of her hand real still she thinks thats soo Cute as well and hopping on the floor and going for a run catch me if u can cuz my little pink tiel legs can move!.

"where there is floor tiel will travel, watch your step cuz im goin for a run!".

  Hi Peepers
Yesterday when mom got back from the pool after a couple of hours, it started raining. It rained off and on all night long. It's sort of overcast right now too, and we think it's going to rain again today. This is getting old! We've had more rain in June than normal. It's the last day of June, though, so maybe July will bring better weather.
Since mom got her nails done on Sunday, if it rains today, she'll start packing up the kitchen. I know it's still a couple of weeks away, but she figures a little at a time will be better than trying to do it all at once.
I hope you are having a good day, summery weather and lots of cuddles and love. Hugs, Willie

  Pearl & Silver return with their guitars
as they just saw Jenny Lynn's profile and this song came to mind. It's called 'Freedom Isn't Free' originally sung by John Anderson. The 'tiel frothers strum their guitars and Silver begins to sing:

I'm proud living in the USA
Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave
It might not be perfect
But I'll take it any day
But how long will the eagle fly
And how many mothers have to cry
Because so many sons and daughters died
Its always been that way - 'cause

(chorus)
Freedom isn't free
It never was and never will be
What I'm trying to say
There's always been a price to pay
Freedom isn't free
Its been passed down to you and me
But how long will it be
'cause freedom isn't free
I said freedom isn't free

There's some things going on across this land
Some people like me don't understand
Still we're hoping and praying
That we're gonna get things right
Where I come from there's an unwritten law
You don't back a man up against the wall
Everybody answers to the call
When its time to fight - 'cause

(repeat chorus twice)

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi, Peepers
Skinsis is like mom in hunting the clearance and sales racks first. Only time she might have designer things if it was on the clearance and even then often price still too high.

There is a 10 cent fee for a paper bag at stores that have 'em. The law gives stores the option (now that couple of years have past) to charge 25 cents but haven't found any that do. Most stores sell reusable bags with their logo so good advertizing. The stores are required to continue to carry the thin vegetable/meat bags. Mom always bags anything she buys raw in case of leakage.

Awesome you were able to get outside for a lil while. The family celebrated the grand's first birthday yesterday at a nearby park. A tad warm but lots of shade and it did cool a bit after a while.

The three 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug and hold on tight basking in the warmth and glow of their friendship. Soon they are swaying and humming happily.

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

  Hi Peepers
That French toast sounds tasty! Bet you all loved your taste of it.
Thanks to mom for sending mine the Examiner stuff. Hope by the next issue, they have it up and running right.
We had some sun today, for about 2 hours, but now it's cloudy and threatening rain again. It's in the low 70s, which is really low for this time of year.
Mom was scheduled for the RVS room again today. She cleaned and fed 23 raccoons and a skunk baby, but that was only about half the room. She left a note for her replacement person on the daily schedule to let her know what was done. With raccoons, sometimes it's hard to tell if they have been cleaned or not, especially after they are fed. They paint themselves and each other with the food, fling it around, just make a mess in general. Mom moved some of the animals around while she was cleaning, so she had to keep track of their charts. Charts are hung on the walls now, to keep them out of reach of curious raccoon hands, so it's easy to switch them around.
Mom did get to the pool for about 2 hours, but it got really dark, so she packed it in and came home to shower and blog for us.
Carol(Cori and Booboo's mom) lost her dog Cookie this morning. They made the decision to put her down because she was not eating any more. It would be nice to drop by Cori's or Booboo's page and offer condolences.
I hope you are having a good day and getting some sun and cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
We won a jukebox and the theme? Wow! Thanks so much. We'll decide on a prize pic soon.

So awesome to win an award at the Milonga but all the pics were wonderful. Loved the musketeer pics too but then that is one of mom's favorite classics.

Yes, kids do tend to outgrow things quickly and at that age do not care about designer things. When skinsis was lil mom would always check the clearance racks and check for sales. When skinsis was older did the same since each store always has clearance.

The reusable bags are cheaper to buy than a gift bag that is only used once. Most cities around us have banned plastic bags so everyone is supposed to bring their own bags or do without.

Mom uneggspectedly babysat for an hour yesterday as SIL had a quick errand to run. Most of the time was spent with the grand eating, heehee.

The three 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug and hold on tight for a long time. They sure do savor their friendship and one of these days gotta get back to singing songs as so fun to do.

  Hi Peepers
I hope mom found something easy for last night's dinner. Mom sometimes calls a Chinese or Thai restaurant for take out if she is not in the mood to cook. Do you have any good take out places there? I bet you do!
What a fun milonga it was. The music by Sam and the Scruffy birds was perfect, the food by Lizzie was delicious, Kiddo and Taz made a wonderful party happen once again. Thanks to everybirdie who made it possible. Congratulations to the winners in the picture contest, too. It was tough voting, we voted for everyone, so probably didn't help anyone to win, but all of the pics were so creative.
It's another cool rainy day today. Mom may go for her mani/pedi or she may find something to do here, like start packing up the kitchen. You never know with her.
I hope you are having a fun day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches, as well as some fine summer weather. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Temps did go down a tad yesterday so it wasn't bad going out and doing a bit of shopping. Mom found a couple more clothing items for the grand's birthday (clearance rack - mom bought majority of skinsis baby things that way) so just needs a cute bag to put it in.

Would be so awesome to meld our weathers as it would be quite ideal to share the rain and warm temps then both our areas would be perfect. At least we are cooler at night (so far) but as summer progresses that might change.

Another great Milonga. We are so honored to win an award and we know you and Dixie are too. Congrats to all the winners. Thanks to Kiddo, Taz and SamIam for all the hard work. We had fun singing a song as well.

  Hi Peepers
Last night mom's nephew came to check the electricity in the kitchen. There is already a dedicated line for the stove, so he just needs to put in a few GFI outlets and it will be ready. Mom gave him a picture of the tile so he can match colors when he looks for flooring. To think this all started because mom wanted to replace cabinets! Now it's a whole kitchen makeover.
Update on the peregrine: He seems to favor one leg, so when the vet checks him out, hopefully he will find something that can be fixed.
It's a rainy day, with rain predicted for the next several days, so no pool or outdoor work will happen. Mom and the dogs got soaked on their shortened walk this morning.
We are looking forward to the milonga tonight, it should be a grand time at the Renaissance Faire! Our flock is ready to see what they can do tonight. Hope to see you there! Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
There was still popcorn leftover from the corncob mom poppped so we got more. The green beans don't always look fresh so when mom sees 'em looking good she gets us the fattest ones she can find. Of course, the times dad grew it in the yard we'd always have plenty. Don't think there will be a garden here either due to the drought. Maybe in the fall.

Just doesn't sound like an enjoyable travel in the convertible. Guess if weather was good and driving leisurely might be different.

Supposedly was cooler yesterday but to mom it was all still hot. Today should be cooler for a few days before the heat returns. We are glad of the respite as too many hot days in a row is hard to take.

The grand's birthday is this coming Mon! Mom found a pair of shoes. A classic Mary Jane looking shoe. There wasn't a lot of choices in the correct size at the one store mom stopped at. It was too hot to do more than the one place but maybe mom'll look more today. The only other choice was a pair of sneakers and mom didn't think a first pair of shoes should be that heavy.

Such a busy, busy day for your mom, skinsis and Nana. How fun they could meet skinbro for a break and get a nice treat.

  Hi Peepers
It has been a glorious afternoon, after a somewhat gloomy morning. Mom thought she'd have to stay home again today, after she got back from the center, but the sun came out, so she went to the pool for a couple of hours.
If you check out my gallery, you can see one of the newest patients at the wildlife center. It's a fledgling peregrine falcon! It glided down onto the Pitt campus yesterday from the nest on the Cathedral of Learning, a student spotted it, called a teacher, who called the Game Commission. They captured it and brought it to the center, where is is being evaluated. It is missing some secondary flights on the one wing, so they are going to have a vet look on Tuesday and go from there. The staff thinks there is new feather growth, so hopefully this baby is a short term patient and will be able to be released.
Mom cleaned that cage as well as all the others in the recovery room today. There are several ducks, mostly mallards, eastern box turtles, and a pigeon. The room is totally full!
The pool was quite refreshing today,as well. Mom and her sis ate at Red Lobster last evening, great meal.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and playtime. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
There was one lil triangle of waffle left so mom toasted it and gave that to us yesterday along with some fresh green beans. We attacked both when she put 'em in (separate times) so delish!

During eggcess heat mom is so glad not to have a long commute. Even with the a/c the sun is often shining thru the window making that part it hits still very warm. Could never ride in a convertible. Mom has long hair and it would be a terrible mess to untangle plus with her something would fly into her eyes.

It did finally cool last night so had the windows open in the bedroom otherwise would've been too stuffy. There's no a/c there. One more day of 90s is predicted and then we hope it goes down and stays down for awhile. Skinsis is planning the grand's birthday celebration at a nearby park but mom seems to recall it does have some trees nearby for shade so should be okay.

Good to make eggstra food for the week so not have to cook everyday. Saves on energy and water since not having to wash so many things either.

Mom is going to stop after work and look for a pair of shoes for the grand. At least the stores will have a/c.

  Hi Peepers
It's good news that mom got a good computer back up battery. Then if the power goes off again, she will be able to use it.
It looks like mom and her sis will go shopping this afternoon, because it's still cool and very cloudy.
Last evening mom had her appointment at Home Depot to finalize the kitchen plans and put in all the orders (which she thought were put in last week when she paid for them). Now we're waiting for the cabinets to arrive and the work to begin. We are not looking forward to emptying the kitchen and having a big mess for weeks, but the result should be worth it. The guy even figured out the square footage for the backsplash, because mom wanted to make sure she had ordered enough tile. She got the cream and cobalt tiles to go with the designed ones. They will all be shipped at the end of July. Mom also bought the stove and microwave last night, since their fourth of July sale started. It's a pretty basic gas stove and the microwave has a hood under it for exhaust. It should all work out all right.
Now to paint the remaining wall and get the floor done, and it will be a completely new kitchen.
Mom is going to dinner tonight with her sister, and maybe (if it clears up) to the pool this afternoon. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
The only millet mom had was the calcium covered ones and usually we take awhile to eat that type. Not on our hatchday! We attacked it right away. Yesterday she popped one of the birdie corncobs for us. She forgot it was in the microwave after it had cooled sufficiently but eventually we got it. So, so yummy. Instead of toast in the morning we had some waffle. Mmmmmmm!

Must be quite scary to have that storm going and have a tornado watch too. So glad it didn't go towards your home. Very irksome to lose power but glad it turned into a nice next day. We are forecast to get into the 90s today. Mom will be braced for an oven when she leaves work. Think it might be sandwiches for dinner time!

That is so nice of skinsis friend to give her a ride to the parronts so she can go on the errand runs. Makes it so much easier for your mom to not have to make an eggstra trip to get her and take her back.

We can only imagine what your mom first thought seeing Dixie on the bottom of his birdhouse. Glad that his eye is okay and wonder if he hurt it being scared during the storm?

It is fun to sing a song with the theme at NTT. So enjoy singing with you!

  Hi Peepers
Congratulations to the winners of the dolphin races, and to all the participants, too. It sure was fun.
Yesterday there were showers and thunderstorms all day long, until early evening. Poor Daisy is practically living in her thunder shirt.
Mom got a call from Home Depot saying they got the installer estimate back, so she's going up there tonight to sign and finalize. Hopefully they can get started as soon as the cabinets arrive. Mom isn't sure where to put the cabinets, on the porch or in the garage (and she'll park in the driveway). Guess it depends on how soon they can start once the stuff gets here.
Today looks like the perfect pool day so far. It's already mid 70s and should hit mid 80s by the afternoon.
I hope you are having a fun day, filled with cuddles and love. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Thanks so much for the hatchday wishes and the song. We got some millet (already decimated) and a new toy. Been having lots of treats the entire week (can't have everyone all on one day mom says) so we've had pasta, egg, cereal, but us 'tiels would be happy just to have eggstra millet. We don't get it everyday so it is a welcome treat.

Trying to be careful in following instructions is good but doesn't help if one writes it down wrong or reads it wrong or doing the wrong row. Mom's done all and then wondered why the project didn't look correct. Think all is well with the current project just not liking the yarn.

It would be so much better if workers are able to be employed at a location closer to where they live. Means there would be no eggcuse for being late and if called in would be there sooner too. Hopefully skinsis can get transferred to be closer to her home.

Hopefully you didn't lose any power during the storm and that no tornadoes arrived either. For us summer is all heat and never had to deal with any weather stuff so just can't imagine tornado and hurricane watches when kids should be out having some fun.

Mom is babysitting later today. We'll get our prize pic soon and get it in the gallery. We did fly over to NTT yesterday and made some guesses and sang a song too.

  Hi Peepers
Love your beach pic!
Thanks to Aunt Rose for our beach pics in our galleries.
Our hearts are with Sugar and her family today.
It has been a few hectic days for mom, but all fun, for sure. Sunday after the pool, she went with family to see Jurassic World in extreme 3D with surround sound. It made mom jump a couple of times. The science was junk, but the story sure was exciting! She loved the raptors. The only weird thing was the heroine running in the jungle with heels. They went out to dinner after, and when they got in the car, there was a dinosaur shaped cloud overhead!
Yesterday after the wildlife center and the pool, mom texted Aunt Gin and told her Spy was playing locally. Aunt Gin finally got her birthday dinner and movie! She picked mom up after work, they went to Red Robin to eat, then saw the movie. It was really good; a lot of foul language, but that seems to be the norm lately.
Today it looks like rain, maybe thunderstorms, so the pool is out. Mom did get the fountain cleaned this morning, finally. The water was running so slow there were mosquito larvae in it. They are not there any more! To make sure they don't come back, mom slipped a ring of bacillus thuringensis into the water. It's not toxic to wildlife, but destroys mosquito larvae and eggs.
Mom's nephew called and is coming over on Friday to measure for the tile, the floor, and see where the outlets are in the kitchen so he can replace them with GFI ones. Guess we're starting the kitchen!
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of summer cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Still haven't taken a pic of the patriotic cloths yet. The patterns for the 12 days of Christmas mom found online for free that was posted quite a few years ago ('07? '08?) so many had already made 'em and any errors were fixed in the instructions so mom should have no trouble having 'em come out.

Gosh, would think the doc would just write the note and leave it at the office for your dad to pick up. To have him come in for an appointment and pay for the visit seems unnecessary but if he gets eggamined and can ask questions then get his $$ worth.

So fun to be able to join the parronts outside and watch the wild critters at the feeders and bath. Temps are staying warmish here and forecast to reach 90 on Thu. Hopefully they are wrong since the w/e was supposed to be 90s and it never got that high. Still, it is summer so we won't complain too much.

We'll check the email for the prize pic and get it posted soon.

  Hi Peeps,
I may edit this again. If you noticed, the one in my gallery is different. Kacey asked me if I would include Mikey, so I tried to fit it in and not make it look so crowded. Then I changed you and Mikey. I think Mikey looks better against the chair, since he is so light and you have more color. I may edit it one more time. I will let you know and then I would love for you to have it! Thanks so much for asking first.
I will let you know when it is finished.

I am so glad that you made a pic of each one of you. We do not have that many that seem interested so we don't have a lot of pics. Maybe more birds will come through tomorrow.
Thanks for making the pics!

  Hi Peepers,
There is no reason to be sorry. I didn't even mind. I just didn't want you to cheat yourself out of a vote. This was the very first night of voting, not last night. And with being busy with the pictures and KB, I never mentioned it. Guess you would have to check with the tally bird if you wanted to change anything. I'm not upset with it and if you don't mind me as an entertainer, it is fine with me.

I didn't even give you my last two pics for my prize wins and I see K & D are hosting the NTT again this week. I have to get you my two pics before I win another. I don't want to give you too many at once. You have too many other things going on right now. How is Nana doing? Hope she's feeling okay.

I am trying my best to get us a good pic for the beach contest. There will be a few other birds in it also since it has to be three or more. Hope you are having a good night!

Busy day today, so it's a short blog. Jurassic World in 3D was fantastic! Mom did the outdoor pens today that are on the other side of the building. It's a new section, with an aviary, some hutches that had groundhogs, and some hutches with possums. She got 2 possums ready for release, too. Nobody is in the aviary yet.
The pool was great today, it really feels like summer now. Tonight mom is taking Aunt Ginny to her birthday dinner and movie. Hope you are having a good day and getting lots of sun, cuddles, and love. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Think one has to be rather picky when getting things at garage sales. Have to know if an item is working before buying. Never know when might find a bargain though if know what to look for.

Don't recall skinsis being too picky about shoes or clothes at a young age. She never cared about designer stuff when older but if it showed up on a clearance rack in her size then she might get it.

More rain? So many birdies are getting rain and hope no one is getting flooded or too muddy either. Glad there was a bit of dry time for the family to eat outside in the fresh air.

Mom gave some yarn away to her sis for donation. Colors she will never use since didn't make the project it was originally meant for. Finished the three patriotic washcloths but hasn't taken a pic yet. Is starting on the 12 days of Christmas cloths but isn't liking the yarn she picked so once the first one is finished will redo it in another yarn.

Hopefully your dad won't be in too much discomfort while he waits (too long) for that doc appointment.

Oh, the latest prize pic? Could we have the one with the big screen that looks like it is on a huge tree outside? Thanks so much!

  Hi Peepers,
Okay, I will put you in a group with me and I'll get a few other birdies too! I don't mind if all of you are in my group, but since you can each be in a group, and I want to be fair to you. You also have another chance to win. I hope I explained it right when I blogged you before. I don't want you to think I don't want to be in with all of you because I would love to. You were so right about the voting at the booth. There are so many nice pics that it is very difficult to pick just one, or even three! Tomorrow will be the last day of voting for the KB. The pictures need to be in by Tuesday. Speaking of voting, were you aware that the first night you voted you put Chipper down as a Warrior and also as an Entertainer. I didn't know if you wanted that vote for D or K. Just thought I would tell you. If you want to enter, just have your beach themed picture posted as your profile or your gallery and we will pick it up. Thanks for letting me know about the pics. Have a good night!!

Your friend,
Chipper

  Hi Peepers
It's really good that Shiloh is walking so well. I bet her pain level has decreased a lot, too. It's wonderful that she will go through with the second surgery, too, even though it won't be until January. You and Celine probably help to keep her spirits up, too.
La Fuente called and said that the tile mom picked was on back order and wouldn't be in until late July. Mom said it was okay, because she doesn't think the work will be done much before then, anyway. She looked again at others but is happy with the tile she chose, so we'll wait for it.
Happy Summer and Happy Father's Day to dads everywhere.
Yesterday mom didn't get any outdoor work done because of the rain. Today it was supposed to be pretty out, but it looks pretty dismal right now. Mom was hoping to get those irises planted and the fountain cleaned, get some pool time in, and go to see Jurassic World today. Right now it looks like Jurassic World is the only thing that will happen. Good news is that the laundry is all caught up.
Seems like we're voting all over the place lately, so don't forget Jester Bean, the KB dolphin pics, and the Ren Faire pics when you're hitting that vote button.
Hope you have a great day today, filled with attention and love. Hugs, Willie

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.

  Hi, Peepers
Happy Father's Day to your dad.

Yeah, our dad had the trigger finger surgery too. He didn't want surgery initially either so had the shots, did the massages, contrast baths, etc, etc. Some days are better than others but has to be careful not to overdo.

Not sure what sizes of shoes skinsis has for the grand that were given but probably all used ones as they were given by the other gma who found a bunch of stuff at garage sales and the like. A couple things she gave 'em broke after one or two uses.

Ahhhhh, mom remembers the stride rite store. There's a kid only shoe place at the mall but can't think of the name. Don't recall skinsis being difficult as a toddler with shoes. Mom initially put the soft type on her so more like loose socks with a grippy sole before 'real' ones.

How awesome to see the hummingbird! Hopefully all the wild birds will be okay thru the coming storm and no flooding near you! What a scary thought but in years past the parronts had to be vigilant when it rained all day and night.

The three 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug and hold on tight savoring the warmth and joy of friendship.

Keeping our wings crossed for your dad, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Peepers
We're so glad mom got her car back. Salt air does corrode them, unfortunately. Sounds like another really busy day for mom. How's Shiloh's therapy going? Is she getting more mobile? Hope she is still considering the second surgery if this goes well.
Mom posted a pic of the tiles she ordered for the backsplash on Falco's page. She is thinking of ordering some solid color tile to fill in, in case there's not enough. Any suggestions for color? We're kind of heading towards royal blue if we can find it.
Today is another gloomy looking day. It was kind of spitting rain when mom walked the dogs. She carried her umbrella but didn't use it. When she got back, she watered the plants on the porch which haven't been getting their share of rain, and dumped some water out of some of the planters on the patio that are just saturated. Our neighbor gave her a couple of irises, so they need to be planted, and she is going to clean the fountain today. That pump gets clogged with stuff so easily, and needs frequent cleaning. Maybe some laundry will get done today, too. Of course, all those plans will go out the window if the sun comes out! Then it's pool time.
Don't forget to vote for the dolphin of your choice today through Monday and keep voting for Ren Faire pics!
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Yeah, dad has the carpel tunnel on both hands/wrists. Caused by puter mousing. He has had 5 operations between the both and that's one reason why he's basically retired. If he uses his hands too much then they hurt for days afterwards so has to moderate what he does. Some things are hard to open due to their size and rubber things to help grip don't always work too well.

We'll let you know about how the grand and shoes works out. Don't even know if skinsis has any shoes that fit. Some were give to her but think they are infant sized and she just never used 'em.

Hopefully your temps will be a lil warmer so can have the evening fresh air but we know don't want any cold breeze at night while sleeping. Even when it is summer our birdhouse is still in the middle of the room at night.

Sometimes with those deals can buy one and get the lower price but other times have to buy the full amount. It is good if they label it so there is no surprise when paying. If cereal or something shelf stable could buy a larger amount eggspecially if splitting with others but harder to do with fresh stuff that might spoil before eating it all. Then would be wasted $$ instead of a bargain.

Oh, why is the appointment with the specialist so far out? Maybe that means it isn't that bad? Well, we shall continue to keep our wings crossed for him that it isn't anything too serious requiring surgery, long healing time, etc, etc.

These days think most store's will honor an eggspired tag if left up. Just good will and want return business. Mom's store will honor anything left up (and mom is always finding old signs that got missed!) and knows shoppers appreciate it.

The three 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug and hold on tight savoring the warmth that flows thru. Can never get enough.

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

  Hi Peepers
Mom and her sis went to a local restaurant which serves cheap meals between 4 and 6. They both had good food, mom had pork napoleon, with prosciutto, cheese, spinach, and red pepper sauce, and Aunt Renee had mahi mahi with rice. They stopped at Oakmont bakery after, and picked up a couple of things. Mom got a cinnamon crunch coffee cake, which she'll share with Jeff, our neighbor.
Thanks to Chipper for our dolphin pics, they're great!
Mom did the RVS room today, then stopped at the Giant Eagle on the way home. We all needed fresh veggies.
In the RVS room, the person who was coming to replace her walked in right at the end of mom's shift. Mom was on a step stool which had 2 steps on it. Rebecca asked mom a question, and mom backed up with 2 raccoons in her hands to answer her. She forgot about the second step! She didn't fall, but kind of fell into some cages. She dropped one of the raccoons, and Rebecca picked it up; thankfully it wasn't hurt. Mom thinks she sprained a finger which is no big deal. Guess what else was in the RVS room today? Skunks, baby skunks all over the place, and baby bats! They are adorable. The skunks look like beanie babies, and the little bats look like gremlins. It was really hot in there, so mom kept cleaning, then going into the kitchen to make up food dishes. She normally cleans everyone then feeds all of them, but she was looking for any excuse to leave the RVS room and get some air today.
The good news is that the sun was out for a couple of hours, so mom got to the pool! She only swam a couple of laps, but it felt so good to be in the sun. It's raining again now, but it's not storming, which is good.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Peepers,
Your dolphin pictures are ready and posted in the KB gallery. It's nothing fancy, just an ordinary picture to get you in the contest. You are numbers 5, 6, and 7. If you do not like them or you don't want them on there, I will delete them for you.

Have a good day!! Leaving you a vote.

  Hi, Peepers
Dad occasionally would change baby skinsis diapers. These days with his carpel tunnel he doesn't always know how hard he is pushing/gripping things so doesn't want to risk hurting the grand by holding on too tight, etc. It'll be so much easier once she is walking totally on her own. We'll let you know how the shoe putting on works out but not sure when that will happen.

The temps went down a tad yesterday. Not humid so it doesn't feel too bad. Though when it gets into the 90s it is yucky no matter what. Still, if not humid then not dripping so much. Continues to cool at night so can open the windows then.

The grocery here besides the double points for buying a gift card will often give eggstra points for buying a certain amount or higher in one transaction. (Usually $60 or $75 not including alcohol, milk, couple other things) They also have an online program to add coupons and special deals so don't have to bring any paper coupons and just use your card number and it all goes off if buying items they apply to.

That is good Dixie decided to eat out of the bowl on the table. A change of scene helps.

Any results on your dad's MRI? Imagine the doc must look at it and let 'em know.

The three 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug and hold on tight for a long, long time. The love and friendship they share means the world to them.

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