i happened to go into a pet store and saw this beautiful severe macaw. it wouldn't have anything to do with me and when i went near her she tried to bite me. a few days later my hubby and i were eating at a restaurant near the pet store and i persuaded my hubby to go in and see this beautiful macaw. it was love at first sight between the two and my hubby bought her on the spot. the next day after bringing her home and getting her settled into our home, Cori decided i was her mate and no one else. she allows my hubby to hold her but it is me she wants 24/7.

  My Sweet Coribell,
Well, the parronts spent the weekend celebrating their 40th Anniversary and tonight, they are getting together with friends from St. Louis that they haven't seen in almost 40 years. Should be interesting.

Angel puts his wings around Coribell and holds her close & the two birdies snuggle in each others wings...

Love,

Your Angelbird

  Hello Cori~
Mom's trip to Kent was a bit longer than she thought it would be. At least she did not get lost! She had the great idea of driving up to another freeway since the detour was backed up for miles. Unfortunately about a billion other people had the same idea!hahahahahaha McKenzie enjoyed it since they went through the valley where there are lots of farms. She had a real sniff fest!hehehehehe There will be pumpkins galore there in a few months!
Today is a quiet day but Sunday usual is. Dad is leaving tonight so mom is finishing up laundry. Jennifer and I are watching a movie. It seems a bit silly but she likes it and I like having the company!!
Hope your day is wonderful!!

  Hello Cori~
Hope you are having a fabulous day! I have to make my note short today because mom is going to drive up to Kent. It is not very far away but coming home she will have to take a detour and that might take some time! She might even get lost which is usual for her!hehehehehe It's a clear day and she can see the mountain so she will know which direction to head!!
Enjoy the day!

  Hi Cori
Both Mom and I are so praying that your new feathers willbe coming in green and not maroon,my Mom is always worried about that happening to Dixie.
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 81 the lows of 69 and right now at 8:00pm its 75.After Mom got dad off to work she collected the rest of the trash and got it all in the car along with the rest of the recyclables.Then she got us up super early and cleaned our cages and swept our room and gave us our Worldly Cuisine and then she and took off without us and went to Nana's.When Mom got there she got all Nana's trash and recyclables in her car and before they left Nana made them some waffles and some tea for breakfast.Then they took off for the dump and Mom got rid of all the recyclables and trash and from there they went to the Bank,then they went to Falmouth to Ocean State Job Lot so Nana could check out the sale on curtains but they were all way too long.Then they went back to Mashpee to Marshall's to check the curtains there but they were all too long also.From there they went back to Nana's and by then it was lunchtime and Nana made them a nice salad.While Nana made the salad,Mom made skin bro 20 jelly sandwiches for his work for the next two weeks. They had some coffee afterwards and then Mom left around 3:00pm to beat the traffic and to come home and get some stuff together.Mom came in to see us and to give us our late afternoon snack of an animal cracker and while Mom got things done in the house Candida kept whining to go out on the deck.So my dad had come home by then and he got the umbrella up and while Mom made dinner,we got to go out on the deck with dad.Mom came out to join us and Dixie kept pacing back and forth in front of Dad begging for some of his dinner,so dad gave both Dixie and Candida some of his roll and Mom had given them a blueberry and a grape.We all got to stay out on the deck til it got dark and then Mom brought us inside and now we're snuggling with her while she helps us with our notes.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for sweet Cori!Loving you always and forever,Peepers

  Hi Cori and Boo boo
Oh that stinks that mom lost all her movies! We are so sorry about Grandpa too. That is a hard thing to go through and very depressing when you have to clean out the apartment and know what is soon going to happen too. Mom had all that to do with her moms house but didnt do it till after she had passed but know your poor mom doesnt have that choice. So sorry she has to go through this too((((hugs)))).
I am glad to hear that Boo boo seems some better now too.
Well here it is Friday so looks like we are going to get another weekend of BC since its rumored BC doesn’t work on the weekends!
This morning mom did some cleaning and then I was scooped up and given a bath and then outside for a sunbath. It was 10:30 and the sun was out but not real humid or too hot which felt pretty good. After that the rest of day mom and I just took it easy and played. These are the greatest kind of days!!

  Hi Cori & Boo Boo,
Boo Boo sounds like she's making a lot of progress. Jumping up on her perches sounds like a good sign, but I hope she eats. Maybe Mom will be able to get her to eat better today! Let's hope so.

It is so good to still be on BC and talking with our friends! It's a beautiful day here and we are going to have cooler weather this weekend. Hope you have a good weekend too!

Hope today is going well! Sorry your mom has to deal with all the packing and storing of the grandparents things. I'm kind of glad the stepbrothers are gone because it didn't seem like they were going to help much and your mom does not need anymore stress from anyone!
I hope everything goes well and that it is not too much work for your mom. She really could use a break!!!

to enjoy icy cold cherry snowcones with his sweet Coribell...they decide they will eat some and pour some over their heads to cool off. Then Angel starts to preen Coribell's feathers on her head and all around her beak, in those itchy places birdies can't reach... Let's enjoy what's left of summer!

  Hello Cori~
Hope you had a wonderful day!! It was okay around here! We had Mexican take out for dinner. Mom has been up all day and is really tired. She is off tonight and tomorrow night so she'll get some rest!
It's been a long day. Dad got an abscessed tooth and got sick. He had a doctors appointment this morning for a check up and didn't say anything but by this afternoon it was really painful so mom told him to go back to the doctor and get pain meds and antibiotics. He did and now he feels much better.
We are going to have a quiet evening and mom will finally get some sleep!!
You enjoy your evening too!

  Hi Cori and Boo boo
That is nice that the house next door is being renovated and giving Boo boo lots of big black ants!
We keep expecting to come on BC and it not be here so always a good day when its still working!
Today was suppose to be cool but nice and all that jazz but it didn’t happen. The weather guesser was really wrong today. It was cool alright(78) but we had lots of rain and clouds here! Yours truly didn’t get a sunbath that is for sure. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
The nurse called mom this morning and said the blood work came back ok. The one thing the doctor was concerned about came back fine though moms platelets are low and she has to be rechecked for that in 3 months. Moms platelets do run low once in a while and mom suspects she was just born with low platelets. She can usually tell cause she is more tired too when they are low.

  Hey Cori,
Well moms first day started out muggy and hot as she walked to the bus stop which took all of 6 minutes. Then it took the bus like 15 minutes to get to town as it goes on the freeway. She really didn't get to do much today except read the manual but it wasn't specific enough cause her computer wasn't ready. The tech guys are workin on it but moms body had to physically be there then they start. Dunno why they can't do that ahead of time. Mom was lost without the puter thing. So she just read some of the case files that was interesting.

After work it took her 15 minutes to walk up to the bus stop then it took 45 minutes to get home and by the time she got home it was 6 pm. Hopefully she can get parking as some of the girls told if she had parking before then they just push her name up the list. Yay! But she is waiting for the other secretary to give her the forms to fill out first.

So it will be another fun day at the beach carnival.

Everyone rides first, that way the rides don't make them sick. With the eggception of Kaji, he did the opposite then got sick.

Laka is tending to his tummy with some 7-up that might help calm his poor tummy.

While Cookie and Sallykins get their portraits taken Polu, Chipper, Gus, Sugar and Cori try their best at the dime toss games. Gus's pants is falling from all the coins he brought to play. Polu says here let me help you unload them coins. While Chipper gets a pair of suspenders for him to hold up his pants. Heeheehee

Laka pulls 2 budgies that was stuck to her tail feathers as she got off the ride. They happily chirp and go on another ride by themselves.

Pearl and Pookie and Dixie are at the food booths pigging out on corn on the cob, cotton candy, candy apples and corn dogs. Laka says you might get a sore tummy if you guys eat too much! They just ignore her and keep eating away. Candida, Silver and BooBoo play the water horse game with the water squirter.

Mrs BB waddles and gets something to eat and asks Pookie them don't eat it all, save some for me!! They just laugh and tell her to hurry up and order before its all gone.

Hugs to you all and a vote too.

Love,

Angel Pookie and flock

  Hello Cori~
It's another lovely day here. All the fog and clouds in the mornings are making it cooler in the afternoon. By Friday it will be hot again but that's okay. Hard to believe that August is nearly half gone!!
Mom picked Dad up after work this morning. He'll be here for a few days. McKenzie went crazy when she saw him! Dad went to take a shower and a nap and the dog has been whining ever since. She keeps scratching at the bedroom door and mom keeps having to drag her back to the living room. Ian played with her for a while so she is being quieter right now.
Frank the cat was there to walk with them again this morning. He is such a strange cat. Perhaps since he lives with 2 little dogs, he thinks he is a dog too!
I didn't know that is how you got your cat!! The cat downstairs has to take prozac also. She is an older cat also. I suppose it's just like with humans.
Enjoy they day and I do hope it's perfect!

  Hey Cori,
This is mom’s last day at her old job. So in lieuw of that we shall have a birdie party!! Let’s all have some fun, cause tomorrow mom starts her new job. Kinda like the first day of school, remember how scary that was?

Yay!! Beach party!! There’s going to be a carnival with all sorts of rides and games and entertainment and of course the food buffet.

There will be cotton candy and pizza, corn dogs, hamburgers, corn on the cob and even ice cream. Yummy yummy yummy in your tummy!

Dixie and Pookie hit the rides first as they don’t want to upchuck anything on any birdie should the ride go upside down. Hee heee heee

Laka, Cookie, Gus and Sugar head for the games. They just love the dime toss game. Kaji, Chipper and Candida go for a ride on the Tilt-A-Whirl. Wheeeeee wheeeee wheeeee!!!

You can see their heads swaing as the cart goes round and round and round. While Cori, Pearl, BooBoo and Silver and Hulk are in another cart and Piddy, Polu and Paddy join Mrs BB in another cart. This will be very interesting….. I hope Mrs BB don’t ssquash the budgies, period. Three small birds and Mrs BB, hmmmmmm Let’s watch says Cookie!

As the cart goes faster and faster, all you see is every birdies head swaying from one side to the next. Whoosh whoosh whoosh!!! Laka says I’m getting dizzy watching them go round and round and round and round….. Come on let’s go find another game to play….. she drags Cookie by the wing tip…..

A fun day at the beach carnival……

Happy Monday to you all!!

Love, Hugs and a vote.

Stay tuned for As The BC World Turns……

Till next time.

...our prayers are going out to your grandpa! Our BC is still up and running, for which we are thankful, this certainly can not last much longer! Dad will have a very busy day with spending most of it being poked and prodded at the VA Hospital, dad just hates going there! There will be a lot fewer notes today, due to lack of time! The YouPet.com sight is better than nothing, but we feel like we have lost some of the warmth and pleasant charm of the old BC, does anybody else feel this way also! We hope your week is off to a good start, and a pleasant week will follow! Please give our love to all in your happy home, we'll see ya all tomorrow...

Yes its hard to deal with the parronts when they are older and the sad part is it wont be long and we will the parronts that are older then. That is funny with all the Bobs in the family and confusing too. Glad to hear that Boo boo isnt getting any worse!
Well it was a month ago that BC was suppose to be gone but its still here and so are we!!
No sun bath for me today ! We had a cloudy and off and on rainy day here but the good thing was the humidity was lower at last. The other good thing was mom was home all day with me and we had lots of one on one time together too. It was a great laid back Sunday and my kind of day. Hope yours was great too.

Something similar happened to us on the same night! I went onto my account page and when I clicked to look at something, the page came back up with 0 points, but still had my info. When I refreshed it, the page came up almost blank-no points, no info. I managed to get back on and then the page came back with all the points I originally had and my information.

Our weekend has been a good one, except for the excessive heat. It is still in the 90's here and will be for the next few days. Hope you are having a nice weekend! Stay cool!!!

  Hi Cori,
Polu didn't like his papaya with seed this morning. I got a new bag of seed mix as the parronts went shopping the other day. Dad saw a cute pineapple cheek conure and had to show mom. The bird followed dad back and forth back and forth telling him he wants to go home with him. hahhhahahah I don't think so!!! Mom already has her hands full with 2 fids, 3 fids would set her over!

Plus dad doesn't help mom at all with the clean up or dishes. So hah!! Besides Laka likes to be the center of attention, for now anyways.

Polu just chirps and chirps and chirps. No talking yet, but then it will take time for him.

Its gonna be a hot day and mom did the laundry before they went out so it should be dry by this afternoon.

The next morning after the bonfire and spooky stories dad starts making blueberry pancakes and strawberry waffles for everyone.

The smell of the fruity pancakes and waffles flies thru the air and into the sleeping birds by the campfire. Dixie and Pookie are the closest and it wakes them right up whereas the smell will eventually permeate the nares of the other birds. Kaji is seen snoring away in the hammock as he has kicked out the birds that was sitting with him at the beginning. Musta been a bad dream or something says Polu. I know dad kicks in his sleep too.

Mom has orange juice, pineapple juice, guava juice, apple juice and bottled water all ready for the birds when they get up. The sun is barely peeping over the horizon and Mom and dad will camp out another night as it was so much fun.

Laka and Pookie decide to have a nice relaxing Sunday today. Laka says I want to redo our sand castle that was destroyed by the down pour of rain. Okay, well Pookie says i'm going surfing. Me too!! Polu says as he looks for his tiny surfboard. Mom says Pookie you watch your frother, you're your frother's keeper you know. yeah yeah he says.

As everyone gets up and makes it to the breakfast table and gobble down the freshly warm blueberry pancakes and strawberry waffles and the juice of their choice.

To be continued of As The BC Turns......

Love, Hugs and a vote.

  Hello Cori~
It's pretty here again and not too hot yet. It's suppose to be in the 80's for then next few days and then get up into the 90's again. It is August so I should not expect anything but heat!
Taking McKenzie on her walk this morning proved to be quite a challenge! Frank the cat decided to go on a walk with them! Mom had a horrible time trying to get McKenzie to focus on why she was out there!! Frank is so sweet but mom wishes he would stay in especially when she is trying to get McKenzie to do her business!!
Nothing else going on today. I'm gonna finish up my notes and then mom is off to bed. Two of her coworkers are on vacation this week so it's going to be a long week for mom!
Enjoy your Sunday!!

That really sounds so strange for the computer to do that and to want to go to Face Book and then tell you there's no application called safari!And how frustrating is that for the person in bangladesh to shut the phone down on Aunt Carol in the middle of it all!I'm so happy that you finally got your internet back.

Yesterday morning was a better morning but it sure did heat up fast enough.The highs for the day will be 83 the lows will be 74 would be 83 and right now its 81 and climbing.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and fed is our Worldly Cuisine and swept our room.Then she got our Dad's coffee going and his breakfast and then she started scrubbing the toaster oven as it was such a mess and Mom hasn't had a chance lately to deal with it so she worked on cleaning that good all morning. We are all hoping to get some deck time later on today but Mom says we probably won't be going out until around dinnertime when its not so hot.Other than Mom working on some chores in the house we are in for another glorious boring day here!
UPDATE:Mom got us all out on the deck for dinner time tonight and some pizza crusts which were heavenly!We got to see the bunny come over to our yard and eat some of the grass here.We stayed out til it got dark and the fog rolled in making the street look so eerie!Dixie got to sit in Mom's lap after she finished eating and get his rubs and massages,he looks forward to that every night.Dad put the a/c on tonight as its a strange kind of a day with it not being sweaty hot like it has been but it still feels quite muggy or dampish.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for sweet Cori!Loving you always and forever,Peepers

On Monday dad has to go to Iowa City VA Hospital for an appointment with their urology specialist, dad is getting a ride from Mike, his best friend, he does not trust himself driving that far just yet! It is to make sure all his plumbing is working properly, a very necessary bodily function! We are planning our usual relaxing Sunday, and we wish the same for you and yours!

  Hey Cori,
Tonight as the food is prepared, mom asks their special friend Mr. Cookie Haines to say Grace since he’s been absent and on vacation for a week. Cookie says, ahem…… Lord we thank you for this bountiful feast we are about to eat, may it nourish our bodies and keep us healthy and happy, and I thank you for bringing me and my family home safe and sound and for keeping the BC up and running……no matter what happens. AMEN says everyone. Dig in!! All you can hear is chatter chatter chatter amongst all the friends. Happy chirps and pass that down and over here, pass this over and pass that over here please….. the wonderful sounds of a blessed flockily eating together and having a grand time. After dinner everyone spreads out around the bonfire and take a seat on a log or the swinging hammocks that dad put out. Sugar and Polu and Gus and Chipper swing on one hammock and Kaji, Pookie, Pearl and Laka swing on the other one. Dixie’s got the single seat as it puts his poor aching feetsies up which is good for his circulation. Then he tells Mrs BB if she can give him a push on the single swing. She says sure and gives him a big push and he almost falls out of the swing as she has some powerful wings there.

Soon they all hear boom boom boom!!! They look up at the sky and its brightly colored by Papa Peter and his pyrotechnics display. Everyone ooooes and aaaahhhhhs as the sky is sparkly and after they see the colors they hear the booooom booooom after. There’s a smiley face, look!!! Cuteeee!!! Then they see a heart shaped one, and then a sheep looking one, every interesting….. After the fireworks Papa Peter tells them are they ready for some spooky stories?? Yeah, every shouts and gets their marshmallow on a stick and then take their seat.

Everyone huddles together as there are safety in numbers.

Papa Peter starts…. Once upon a time, there was a group of birds just like yourselves having a great time on the beach eating, drinking, talking story, then all of a sudden….. everyone takes a deep breath and holds it……

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s episode of As The BC Turns…..

We’ll be back after these messages from our sponsors:
Pookie and Polu does a skit commercial about laundry detergent called The Boids Inc. and how clean it gets the hooman clothes.

Love, Hugs and a vote.

  Hello Cori~
Hope the day is going great!!
Well what mom read about turning the router upside down seems to be working! All this high tech equipment and you flip it over on it's top to fix it???? The suggestion was that it cools quicker if it's upside down. Not sure if we believe this but it really had been fine since Ian did it last night.
We will still have to replace it. It is not very expensive. Mom thinks dad got this one at Best Buy about 8 years ago. Gus mentioned that things break in 3's so we are waiting to see what else is going to happen!
Mom washed her clothes today and Ian will take care of his later. That means after 2 days, laundry is done! Never thought it was going to get done!! Now we just have to keep McKenzie off the bed and calm when she is on the sofa!!
Going to be 91 here today!! We still have a breeze so it has not been bad so far. Mom has been leaving the window open when she leaves at night to keep it cool for me and McKenzie. It cools down nicely at night!!
That's all from here! Hope you all have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a bog hug! Love you~ Sugar ♥

Come visit me, Sugar ~ Thanks for all the AWESOME Memories.

  Hey Cori,
After the incident with the collision between Gus and Pookie Momma Ruthie thinks it’s time to play some quiet games for once. She draws hop scotch lines in the sand for everyone to play and has sand bean bags for everyone to mark their place. She makes a smaller hop scotch line for the little ones too.

Later that afternoon after no injuries are reported, mom and dad decide to camp out at the beach with every birdie else. Dad brings the tents out along with the swinging hammocks for everyone to enjoy. Dad gets the wood for the bonfire and his secret stash of fireworks too. Mom brings out the hibachi and dad starts the fire for the food. Dad made his sweet teriyaki meat on a stick, the one that everyone loves to eat. Finger foods!!! Yay!!! Dad’s also gonna be grilling hot dogs or you can roast your own on a stick at the bonfire too. Dad’s also gonna be grilling zucchini, pineapple and apples on the grill for anyone who has a fancy for the grilled veggies. He will also put them on a stick for wingy foods too.

Mom brought sticky rice, mashed potatoes, and macaroni crab salad while dad is cooking the baked potatoes on the grill. Every birdie can smell the food cooking as the wind travels the smell thru their nares and into their brains, then their tummy, Yummy!!

While we all wait for the food to be done cooking mom gets all the drinks out on the table as some birdies are sitting patiently waiting for the food to be done. Gus says I’ll have a Bits Rootbeer please? Polu says I’ll have the same! Cause I’m a big birdie now, right? He looks at Gus and he says uuh huh….

To be Continued for As The BC Turns…… stay tuned.

Love, Hugs and a vote.

  Hi Cori, BooBoo, Piddy and Paddy!
Two amazing hings this morning! One- it is a Saturday and the internet still works! Hehehe! Two- we had an email from BC saying if we didn't log in, we would lose our points! More hehehe! So here we are! We have been blogging some on YP but not much since there has been no internet here!
Today we are supposed to get a bad tropical wave with a ton of rain for today and tomorrow. So we will see! It is pretty cloudy and a little cooler today. My Jorge is supposed to come do some concrete work tomorrow but if the weather is bad, he probably won't come since it is outdoor work! I supervise him of course!
Mom went to the village fair last nite and brought me some pizza but she came home after my dinner time and said i have to wait until tonite's dinner for my piece! Rats!
We all just loved the Simpleton Players! It was wonderful and funny and sooooo creative!
Hope you have a nice weekend! Love, Picabo

  t of the car,then Mom went to Stop&Shop gas station where she used her gas points and got gas for $2.01.She had to circle around the whole gas station as the place was filled and she had to wait for a pump to open up.The going rate for gas was $2.11 for today.Then Mom drove to Dunkin Donuts where Nana got a dozen donuts with the gift card she had and from there they went to Walgreen's so Nana could get some things she needed.From there they went to Stop&Shop where both Mom and Nana got some things they needed mostly some dried yellow and green peas and corn for Mom to make us fids a new bean mix with.It was such a hot day unbearable that Mom forgot to put the handicap placard on her car and she nearly fainted fearing that she would be ticketed but she wasn't.Then they went back to Nana's from there where Mom unpacked the car while Nana went in to get a fruit bowl for all the fids snacks.Both Dixie and Candida really chowed down on the bean mix that Nana had made them and they also chowed the fruit bowl she made them.Nana made lunch for Mom and herself of a salad with tuna and a roll.Mom cut the rice krispies and made 14 sandwiches for skin bro's lunch for next week while Nana got the salad ready and got them in containers and washed out the pan and baking pan.After they ate lunch,Mom got Dixie and Candida harnessed up and in their car seat to go home,she cleaned out their cages and brought them back to the sunroom and left to go home.Mom made it through the traffic and got home by 5:00pm.Dad unpacked the car for Mom while Mom got Dixie and Candida in their cages and she put things away she got Dad's lunch box cleaned out and his dinner ready.When she got everything ready for dad's dinner,she took us out to the deck to join dad for dinner and we watched the bunny and saw a hawk come by.Suddenly the sun disappeared and it got dark and grey clouds filled the sky and the wind picked up quite strong but our parronts stayed on the deck with us til 7:30pm when we all came in and Mom did the dishes and cleaned up the kitchen and now she's here with us helping to get our notes done.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for pretty Cori!Loving you always and forever,Peepers
PS:Mom never knew about my being Star until lots of dogs and cats came by to congratulate me.She too couldn't find it and then she did but couldn't figure out how to get back there again.Congratulations to your Star of the Day and I'm so sorry I missed your special day.YP can be so confusing at times.

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

  Hi Cori
Mom and dad were thinking the same thing about the house across from us.This house the guy who owned it came home one night from work in his brand new big truck and died in the driveway right after he pulled into it.It took years before anyone came to stay in the house and mainly it was several different families and only for a week in the summer.When they went inside the house after the guy died it was a mess and smelled really bad,they had big dumpsters there and everyone that went inside wore a mask over their noses and mouths.There were old rusty machines in the back of the house and they threw away lots of the furniture that was in there.The house was originally a camp house from across the main road from us.They brought that in and then built a huge barn and attached that to the house.They had an open house before any of this work started but Mom never got to go over.They are definitely flipping this house no doubt about it!The house by you sounds really awesome. And quite huge!
This morning was another hot humid day with the highs for the day of 84 the lows of 76 and right now at 8:00pm its 79.Mom got dad off to work.Last night the phone rang at 2:30am and it was the police calling wanting someone to come and put up another stop sign as there was a bad accident on the service road.Dad couldn't call anyone at that hour as everyone was sleeping so he had to get up and get dressed and go and fix the stop sign which was badly mangled and in the woods along with the car that hit it.Dad didn't get home til an hour or so later and still had to get up at 5:45am to get to work.Mom got the trash and the rest of the recyclables in the car and then she came back and got Dixie and Candida harnessed after cleaning out their cages and sweeping the floor quickly.They were put in their carrier as Mom had to go to get her car inspected first before she went to Nana's.The repair shop and inspection station is right down the street from Nana on the same street.Its a small place and there was no place to park the car so Mom had to go all around the back of the building and found a place right by the garage bays where they work.Everyone had to come and check Dixie and Candida out and ask lots of questions.Mom got her car inspected and then continued on the road to Nana's and when she got there she got Dixie and Candida settled in their cages there and then got Nana's trash and recyclables in Mom's car along with Mom's trash etc.Mom then helped Nana put the recliner cover on her recliner and then made rice krispie treats as Nana has been wanting to make them for a while and never got a chance to do so.Then Nana made some tea and a cinnamon roll for them both for breakfast and Candida and Dixie got brought down to the bird room and spent the day with Trixie and Bella.Mom drove to the dump and got rid of all the recyclables,then drove to the trash tunnel and dumped the trash there,then she took Nana to the bank to the drive through so Nana didn't have to get ou

  Hi Cori and Boo boo
We had rain during the night last night and today too. It feels like a sauna out there!
We are sliding into another weekend so wonder if BC will survive this one too??
I got a bath early this morning and then a sunbath while it was still cool enough to do so. Mom had lots of ideas of doing things she wanted to do but that didn’t happen. Things kept getting in the way and before you knew it was time to start supper and my cage cleaning and moms bath…well you get the picture. Maybe another day she will get to do things she wants to then.

  Hey Cori,
As she puts Piddy, Paddy and PK in the boat in the moat. Paddy stands up looking like a war general with his plastic sword holding it high up in the air like Napoleon leading them to war or something.

Then the sun comes out and everyone runs on the beach looking at all their washed up creations of art. The sand castles were a bust. We can rebuild! But later on......

Let's hit the waves!!

Polu jumps out of the boat in the moat and grabs a surf board and hangs four with Angel Pookie who is already catching some good waves out there.....

Hugs,

The Hawaii Flock

  Hello Cori~
Hope the day is going great! BC it still here but I'm having internet problems. It's the box we have that connects us. A router. Mom thinks it might be wearing out. Ian contacted Comcast and it's not them. The box we have from them is working. The other one keeps shutting off and throws us offline. Guess they are going to have to go find a new one.
Microwave broke too!! It was pretty old so I guess it was just time!
Enjoy the day! Sorry I have to make it short again!!

Come visit me, Sugar ~ Thanks for all the AWESOME Memories.
