Even though it was hot yesterday, it wasn't humid so the only time the a/c was on was when mom was fixing dinner . . . I helped her do some laundry and we played. Another day the two of us just spent together :)

Today is a different story - off the folks are going to the g'parronts . . . at least there's that great market near them so I know mom will come home with some yummy things for me ! Not tomatoes of course, those we just have to open the back door to get !

Have a great Saturday :) love to all my friends ! Cookie

  Hi Chico
HAPPY TGIF DAY

mom decided to take a break for a little bit and go to the nearby county pool. it was a beautiful day and not too hot but nice and sunny. when she got there they closed the pool because a doody was spotted floating in it. last week when mom decided to go to the pool just as she got there they closed it because they found someone floating in the water. mom doesn't know what happened because there was nothing in the news about it and nothing on the internet. there sure were a lot of police and ambulances called so maybe the revived the person.

love Cori and Boo Boo

Today was 79 and cloudy. It rained a little and then the sun came out. By late afternoon, we had a mini t-storm with sun after. Then a little rain at dinner. Not a bad day. The parronts got a lot done with my supervision help of course. I think I deserve an extra treat for all that work!

This morning I got my bath and then mom and I went out on the porch and I got a nice sunbath too. Mom read the paper while I enjoyed the sun on feathers. After a while we came back in the house and mom fixed my lunch and while I was busy chowing that down mom shut my condo door. She said she was going for a feather cut and would be back soon and she really wasn’t gone long which was nice. I spent the rest of the afternoon keeping an eye on mom so she didn’t take off again LOL. “No matter how busy life gets. Wildflowers will still spring up in the middle of no where”.

The humidity is gone ! Even though it's still supposed to hit 90, it shouldn't be too bad . . . yesterday seemed the worst of all until it got dark as midnight around 4:00 and the thunderboomers barreled through dumping oodles of rain on the house -

Busy weekend coming up - tomorrow is visit the g'parronts day and then mom promised my Laura to go out on Sunday shopping a bit . . . luckily mom doesn't need anything so she'll be the barometer for Laura's wallet ! har har har !

Have a great Friday :) love Cookie

Another hot humid day here again today. There was rain but it went South of us so we didn’t get any here. I didn’t get a sunbath today either but hopefully tomorrow early in the morning when its not real hot then maybe. Today mom went to visit her sister awhile. I wasn’t too happy about that but at least dad was home so that meant I wasn’t in complete lock down then so that was good. Dad even changed my water when I got it a bit dirty so he is getting better at that too. “No matter how busy life gets. Wildflowers will still spring up in the middle of no where”.

YUCK ! Last night was a cold sandwich supper in our house - I got the first bite of cherry tomatoe right out of the back yard :) Yum !

Daddy was driving down our road yesterday and got worried cause there was a small bird in the middle of the road. He pulled over and saw it was a blue jay fledgling . . . he walked over to urge it back to the grass so it wouldn't get hit. Then he sat in the car (in the heat with the engine off so it wouldn't be spooked) for almost half an hour to make sure its mommy was around . . .

  Hi Chico
HAPPY HUMPDAY

98 degrees at our house today. mom said too hot for us to go outside. instead mom went to visit her mom who turned 94 today at the nursing home which is about 15 miles away. lots of road work being done so there was a lot of car lines. mom had just crossed one of the bridges over the Allegheny River and traffic had backed up so mom stopped her car but the truck behind mom didn't notice and came barreling down on moms small car. mom thought well this is it. at the speed he is going he will probably knock us right off the bridge into the river. mom braced for the impact. suddenly the driver noticed all the cars including moms were stopped and slammed on his brakes. he must have been a terrific driver because the truck spun sideways and turned completely backwards as his big truck tires screeched on the pavement and missed hitting moms car by about 6 inches with his rear end facing moms rear end (that doesn't sound good does it?) all mom could do was sigh and say thank god. the truck driver looked at mom for a moment and then sped off in another lane and exited the bridge. g-ma was crabby and upset that her deceased mother and sister hadn't gotten there yet for dinner and said what a wasted day it was. mom gave g-ma her b-day card and g-ma threw it on the ground. all mom can say is she is she is glad she is home now.

Today was another hot and humid day here but mom gave me a bath early this morning and I did get out for my sunbath before it got too hot. Its suppose to rain tomorrow so hope that cools things off again. When I go to bed at night I give mom a kiss and then get on my perch and sometimes I forget to give her a kiss and if I am too tired I don’t come out to redo the kiss. Tonight I made up for that though and came out 3 times and gave mom a big kiss each time. Now maybe I can take a few nights off again LOL. “No matter how busy life gets.

We're still caught up in the tropical heat wave ! 94 yesterday with high humidity - hotter today - or so the weather guessers say . . . at least it keeps mom close to home ! In fact yesterday she ventured as far as the library and came home with a stack of books so I think she's planning on staying here :)

Yesterday I jumped onto one of those little square tissue boxes and it tipped over ! Thank goodness I had my wings to save me - mom came and gave me lots of hugs and kisses anyway though since I was a little spooked. That wasn't supposed to happen !

Stay cool and have fun - love you ! Cookie

it seems the west nile virus was found in a mosquito here so the city has already been spraying and never announced it. no one has contracted west nile but they are merrily spraying anyway. tonight they sprayed some of the city from a truck.

Today was another hot and humid day here so needless to say there was no sunbath again for me today. Tomorrow sounds about the same but could be a bit worse then today even was. When mom went to the bird show earlier this month she bought this Parrot Pockets for me. She put nuts in it and I sure do have to work for my treats out of that pocket too. Mom thought it would just be something else she bought that I wouldn’t use but sure was wrong on that! If your interested and want to learn about it you can go to www.parrotpockets.com and the ladies name is Debbie Goodrich. There are different sizes available and mom bought me the medium one that is 5x8“. “No matter how busy life gets. Wildflowers will still spring up in the middle of no where”. Hugs~~Gus (RIP Chi chi)

We're heading into a heat wave for sure ! Yesterday wasn't as bad as the weather guessers predicted, but starting today ? 90's and humid ! Straight through next week ! ! Lots of indoor time and cold meals ! At least it keeps mom home in the a/c with me :) Daddy is taking today to go mow the g'parronts lawn early today before it gets too bad out . . .

That's all the news here - but that's OK, cause you know what they say ? "No news is good news" ! Hope you have a "no news" day too ! Love to all in you home - Cookie

Today was another hot and humid day here. I didn’t get my sun bath today either cause of the weather. Tomorrow isn’t looking good either. Each day gets a bit warmer and more humid as the week progresses the weather guesser says. By Thursday it might rain so hope that cools things off then. Mom washed clothes and hung a few out but was so humid they didn’t dry nice like when there is a nice wind blowing. “No matter how busy life gets.

it was a nice warm day so mom took Boo Boo and me outside to the porch while she read the Sunday paper. me in my harness and Boo Boo in her outside cage. i was happily munching on a lilac branch and Boo Boo was paying extra attention to something going on under one of the hue shrubs. mm heard lots of cutter and looked up and saw what looked like a small group of fledglings with their parronts huddled under the shrub. suddenly one of the adults noticed Boo Boo looking at them and quick as a flash flew at Boo Boos cage never coming closer than about 3 feet from it. then it circled and the other adult joined it and they flew to a nearby blue spruce. Boo Boo saw the adult coming and just as quickly went to the middle on the floor of her cage which is padded with a foam cushion. i on the other hand never flinched and continued gnawing on my lilac branch. in a few moments the adults ignoring all of us flew back to the fledglings and paid no more attention to us.

I got my bath this morning and then mom and I sat on the porch while I got my sun bath. Mom said we had to get outside before the humidity got worse which is did later. It was nice and cool in the house though. There is a local girl that has been on television on the voice and she didn’t win but did really well till she was eliminated. Every year she and a bunch of others sing and perform at a festival so mom and dad went there last night for a bit. Mia Z is a more of a blues singer though mom likes country best and some of the bands did that too. I didn’t have a typist at the milonga but my gal Suzi and I had lots of fun there any way. It was another great milonga thanks to everyone for putting it together too. ”May your blessings be countless like grains of sand” Left a vote for you! Your kissing cousin, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

We're warming up again here and should be near triple digits by mid-week. UGH ! Mommy so prefers the fresh air to the a/c running . . .

Mom and dad were home pretty early (3:30) yesterday so mom made a berry tart - and I got to sample the berries (raspberries, blueberries and blackberries) before they were cooked ! Because of the crumble mom put on the top, I couldn't try it after :(

Today was a good summer day. I got to visit with my uncle and cousin. They came to help my parronts move heavy things. But, I got lots of attention! Looks like the next 3 days will be sunny with 83 to 86 degrees. I hear we are having BeeBeeQ kabobs on Sunday. Treats for my feets and on a stick ... what could be better?

Today was more humid and warmer so I got my bath this morning and a sunbath too. It was warming up fast though. Mom and her gal pals went to make cards yesterday. Mom was gone for 3 hours and came home with 3 cards she made. Now you know I might have been hatched in the dark but it sure wasn’t last night and that story of 3 cards in 3 hours doesn’t add up to me. Plus I didn’t get to go along cause mom said Nancy has a cat. Sounds a bit fishy to me. Thinking mom and the gals do a lot of chatting and laughing too. Maybe next time I will hop in moms bag and surprise them all!! ”May your blessings be countless like grains of sand” Left a vote for you! Your kissing cousin, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

mom splurged today and bought herself an office chair for sitting at the computer. it wasn't that expensive and was on sale at office depot. for years her leg and hip have deteriorated to the point that it hurts even going up and down the stairs. for the past week she hasn't been on BC and guess what. her hip and leg pain disappeared. she knows it was that hard puritan desk chair she has been using that caused all the problems. its too soon to tell if its helping but it feels much better sitting on it and now supports moms back and bum properly. hope your mom is feeling better today.
