  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Another pretty sunny one here!
I think they have finished with the road construction! YAY! It took 2 weeks but everything has been paved now. They still have to put the barriers back into the center and paint the stripes but I'm sure that will not be as loud as a steam roller! They had most of the road shut down last night so mom had to cut through the markets parking lot to get home!
Mom loved Captain America Civil War. Captain America has always been moms favorite. She admire the way he does the right thing even if it's not the easiest or popular thing. He is an honorable character!
They did not get back until Midnight. McKenzie did great in her crate even though she got put in there 2 hours early. Mom got us up when she got home and took McKenzie for a nice walk. Then she made us a waffle! We had a Midnight Waffle Party!! We only stayed up for half an hour and then we all went back to bed. It was fun but since I'm a bit sleepy today, I don't think we will be doing it much!
Mom has to go to PetCo today to get McKenzie her Science Diet and some new toys! That puppy goes through toys almost as fast as I do! I'm impressed!
Enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Turned out to be a sunny one here.
It's movie night so I guess we are all going to bed early. Mom is taking McKenzie on a very long walk before so she will be tired out. Mom said we could get up for a while when she gets home. They are going to see Captain America Civil War.
We didn't do much today. The kitchen always seems to need cleaning and there is always laundry. Tomorrow we will be straightening out the pantry yet again! Seems like that always needs to be done too!
Road work continues at night. Hard to tell what they are doing but the left lanes are still not paved. They put some sort of pink canvas looking stuff in holes and piled asphalt on top. That part was paved over when mom drove this morning. Hopefully the left lanes will be paved tonight and that should be it!
Have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Oh camping does sound like fun even if it's just the cookout and relaxing part! Actually that sounds much better than having to do the work for the rest of the stuff! I do hope your mom enjoys it! I can't understand why the dog gets to go and you don't. I suppose the smoke from the fire would not be good for you!
We are getting some laundry done today. All the chores except for vacuuming are done. There are closet to clean out again but we can get that done a little at a time. Most of the things in there are things that no one knew where they went so they dumped them in the closet.
No inspector has come by yet. There are a lot of apartments here so it might be that he won't come until tomorrow. We are still not sure why they are going to inspect every apartment. I would think they would want to see the ones that will be rented to HUD customers.
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's spectacular!

  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
I hope you had a great day! I didn't think I was going to get any notes done today at all! We had tons to do and mom still has a few more things to do but she is going to wait until we are all in bed! I don't know why? I thought all the screaming I did was a real help.
The complex is doing a HUD inspection tomorrow. I guess they are trying to get certified so they can rent to low income people and get subsidized by the government. I imagine they lost a lot of people when they raised the rent so high. They could have just lowered it and maybe people wouldn't have moved.
We had to clean up the house and the storage room. Dad had lots of junk in there and it took a while. There is still stuff to do but like I said, mom is waiting for us to go to bed.
The construction guys showed up a little while ago. They are blocking off the right 2 lanes on my side of the street. Guess it's going to be another noisy night. They did take a 3 day weekend so I am thankful for that. I think they will be done in a few more days.
Have a lovely evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's a boring day around here and after yesterday that is just fine by me!
Mom made a big pot of pinto beans and is going to use part of them for chili and try making refried beans out of the rest.
Thank you for the BOTD congrats! It was a huge surprise to see myself in the spotlight box! I had a great time and Lizzy and Chipper certainly made some fabulous food!
The overnight construction continues! They managed to get part of the left lane across the street paved last night. That means they will start working on our side tonight. They don't work Saturday or Sunday so I only have to put up with the beeping for one more night. Mom is leaving the radio turned up to help drown out the noise.
They did the cross street in 4 nights but I don't think they can shut down many lanes out here because it's a truck route. We are only a mile from the freeway on ramp so there are lots of trucks heading towards the freeway including the huge trucks from Boeing. They make the wings down here and ship them up to Everett to put on the planes.
McKenzie saw her first baby this morning and she did not know what to make of it! The lady who lives across from us has a 3 month old daughter and she was out in her car seat when McKenzie was going out to the dog park! McKenzie sat down and started wagging her tail! Then the baby started fussing so McKenzie got behind mom!hahahahahaha I suppose I should laugh at her since those little humans make me nervous too!
Gardeners are here and they planted tons of yellow mums out front. It looks so pretty! They just started to do the lawns since it was raining this morning.
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just spectacular!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! I can't believe I'm BOTD! I am so excited and so grateful to all my friends here. It is still such an honor to be picked from all the awesome birds here to have a day in the spotlight!
We have had a crazy morning already! It was pretty loud last night since they were paving the road across the street. Who knew that paving included pounding? I didn't! It was the stream roller I guess! Mom cranked the radio up but you could still feel a bit of shaking. I squawked a few times and Merlin spent most of the night in the window watching it all! McKenzie slept through it all!! They were done by 4 am but I think I'll be grabbing a nap later!
We have a wetland that runs the length of the complex. It is fenced in but it's just a plank fence and not totally to the ground. When mom was walking McKenzie this morning, McKenzie stuck her head under the fence that encloses the wetland and pulled out a Mole! Thank goodness mom has been working on "drop" with her because when mom screamed, she dropped it! The poor thing was flailing around and so scared! McKenzie knew she had done something bad cause she flattened out on the walkway and looked guiltily at mom!
Mom locked McKenzie in the car and grabbed the car towel. She picked up the little Mole and checked him out. Thankfully he wasn't hurt! He kept flailing and growled at mom! Mom crawled against the fence and found his hole and set him down there. He dug a little and then popped back down in the hole. Mom told McKenzie that there will be no hunting allowed! We read later on that coyotes dig up moles for food. Dad thinks any kind of dog would do it and that is probably true. Obviously there will be no more walking anywhere near the fence! I don't think moms heart could take another incident like that!hahahahaha She was so scared that McKenzie had killed it.
Come on over to the castle today! Mikey and Kacey have had Lizzy and Chipper prepare a wonderful luncheon for us! I can't wait to see you!!!
Enjoy your day!

  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
I hope you had a wonderful day! We did the chores we never got done yesterday. Kind of boring but mom put Minions on for me while she was cleaning the kitchen! I love those squeaky yellow guys!
McKenzie was a bit rowdy this afternoon. She thinks that the cat is going to play with her like another puppy would but we all know that is not going to happen. He sits and whacks at her and whines for mom to come pick him up. I think he is doing that on purpose to that mom will pick him up. He certainly could get up on something, like he usually does, but I think he just wants mom to rescue him!
The road construction is continuing at night. The trucks just stared showing up. Mom put the radio on a bit louder last night so we wouldn't have to listen to the beeping when the trucks back up. Mom was hoping they would be farther along at this point. They still have not paved across the street from us so maybe tonight. Then they will start tearing up our side of the street! The parts they have finished do look very nice and are really smooth to drive on!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! }

  Hi Pepper
mom was pretty sore when she started to blog for us. she did Coris first and just as she was about to blog for me a muscle spasm shot down her whole leg. she has had them in her foot and calf but never the whole leg. mom had to stand up and try and walk it off. today she is so sore she can barely move. then she was changing the sheets on the bed and because her leg hurts she shifted her weight wrong and heard a pop in her side which means she hurt another muscle which feels similar to a broken rib but is quicker to heal. then mom hd to go to the bank and try and set up a checking account for g-ma so mom can write her checks and the bank said their law department had to approve that. mom had all her papers proving she is power of attorney. she thinks the woman she talked to didn't know what she is doing. after that mom bought super giant bandaids with extra padding and struggled getting them unwrapped so she could cover her seeping shin after she washed it well poured hydrogen peroxide on it and then covered it in neosporin mainly hoping that might prevent scaring.

Paddy Cake has been leaving me alone lately and i was surprised that Piddy Girl flew over numerous times to visit me tonight and was doing her hop skip walk/

I hope you are having a wonderful day!! First let me say that mom and I are very sorry to hear about your families loss. It is very difficult to lose a parent no matter what age you are. We are keeping the son-in-law in our prayers. Having it happen suddenly is even worse since it is going to take a while to become real to all of you.
I did not get many notes out yesterday just because we ran out of time! Actually, it's all moms fault since she fell asleep when she got home from work! Guess she was tired but it sure did put us behind! We managed to get the stuff done that needed to get done but it was time for her to go to bed after that! She only has one more night to work and then we get our weekend!
Really nothing exciting going on. Jennifer is not feeling well so McKenzie and I are trying to be quite so she can sleep! Merlin sleeps all day anyway so it's no big deal for him! I'm doing pretty good but McKenzie doesn't understand quiet yet.
I hope your day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a great day. Cool, wet and windy here. Mom had to put the heat back up a bit in the bedroom to make it nice and cozy for me! Perhaps she should not have put away all that winter stuff!Hehehehehehe It was like daring Mother Nature to bring back the cold!
They have been repaving in my neighborhood. They got onto my street last night. They took a big backhoe and smashed the cement divider that goes down the center of the street! It was noisy but over quickly! They just smashed it and swept it up. Now there is just a yellow line there. Guess they'll be back after the weekend to pave it. Mom left for work right after they did it and she said it runs all the way up to the freeway~about a mile up the street! They seem to be moving pretty quickly!!
I hope the day is just fabulous!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Pepper~
I hope you are having a great day! It's only 80 here today so that is tolerable! There is a nice breeze and mom has the window open so I'm enjoying that. My cage was all cleaned out again this morning so I've been working on redecorating.
McKenzie had an upset tummy this morning. Ian bought her a rawhide bone at Petco yesterday and it did not agree with her. Mom will stick with the Dingo bones since they have never upset her tummy. Petco only had the tiny Dingo bones so mom will pick up the more appropriate sized ones at her work. She is feeling fine now and wants to eat everything in sight! Just like normal!hehehehehe
We have been doing chores most of the day. Mom washed the winter jackets and is going to hang them in the hall closet. She got the stove scrubbed and wants to get some things done in her bedroom later. She will have to wait for Jennifer to get home so that she can occupy McKenzie while mom and I go in the bedroom. If McKenzie is in the bedroom you have to watch her all the time because she likes to grab books and try to chew them up! That is a huge NO NO in this house! I don't get to do it so she can't either!
I hope the day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope your day was wonderful! Still warm up here. We are not use to being in the upper 80's this time of the year. It's not so bad in the apartment. Mom has the windows open and the fan going so we are all comfortable. Suppose to go back to our normal 60's tomorrow. Lots of mosquito's out tonight. I wonder if it gets cooler again if it will kill them off??
Dad is in Yuma. He was in Indio CA yesterday and saw a stray dog. She was afraid of everyone so dad bought her a roast beef sandwich and threw it over to where she was. He asked the guy in the store to call the ASPCA and let them know she was there. She had a collar on so maybe she just got lost. I hope it's not another "dump the dog" like with our McKenzie.
I hope your evening is just perfect!

I hope you are having a wonderful day.
Mom is having one of those days where she can not get anything done! I blame it all on the dog!hehehehehe Mom says there is blame to share!
I have been throwing pieces of wood out to McKenzie and the dork tries to eat them!! Mom asked me to stop it but I don't think it's my fault if the dog is a dope!
When I got bored with that game I decided it was time to rip the paper up on the bottom of the cage. That always gets the puppy running!! I think she wants to rip paper up also. Mom finally had to put her on the leash to keep her away from my cage. Merlin started howling for food so mom filled up his dry food bowl. He took a few bites and then walked over and started whacking the dog. Guess he was jealous because McKenzie was paying attention to me! The turtles even got into it by pushing their filter over!! Mom said something about needing a vacation!hehehehehehe

We are cooking some sketti right now and I can't wait! Mom got a huge tub of the organic salad greens so maybe I'll have a few of those too.
Not much else going on since it's Sunday. McKenzie saw a new dog moving into the apartment above the office building and she keeps wanting to go out to see if she can meet him! No luck yet but she did get to see her poodle friends Molly and Jack! She is becoming a social butterfly!hahahahaha She is still very submissive with any other dog even the poodles. Maybe this is just the way she is which is not a bad thing! Rather have her sweet than trying to run after every dog she sees!

  Happy Saturday from Flitzer's Dad
Flitzer's Dad here with the tale [tale] of an (almost) lost bird
- - - - - - - - - - -
The house got quiet - and I couldn't locate Flitzer. I looked everywhere, calling his name.
No sound. No response
--
I know he had been in the video cabinet - as my DVD Sleeve for "THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA" was shredded all over the place.

He did not make any sounds when I called, nor when I rattled the DVDS.

After searching the rest of the house - I started taking out DVDs from the cabinet. For sure he was hiding back there. Keeping perfectly still.

Thank Goodness he's OK - Sometimes it's tough being a Dad!

I hope the day is going great! Mom was gone for nearly 2 hours getting dad to the airport. Not a ton of traffic this morning but there is more up near Seattle then there is down here. McKenzie really enjoyed it. She watches planes. Don't know if that is unusual or not but every time one of the big transports come over to land at JBLM, she stops to watch!
She managed to get out of her seatbelt when mom was leaving the airport and came to sit in the front! I don't think she understands that dad is not coming back later!
When mom got home they were starting the pressure washing outside. It was very loud and McKenzie and Merlin got scared. I was just fine! Mom moved us all and we spent an hour waiting for it to be done! Now we have wait for the stairs to be dry so we can put our doormat back out!

I hope you had a great day. It was nice here. Mom and I did chores and laundry. We cleaned out a bunch of drawers in the bathroom. There was some old stuff there that we threw out and then checked our first aid kit to make sure it was filled up. Mom hates it when she needs a band aid and there are none left! Mom went to the market across the street to pick up some food for Merlin and return the movies from yesterday. After that she was home the rest of the day.

  Hi Pepper
dad helped mom on saturday to place the cage on the stand and screw it all together. dad thinks the great is great but mom is very upset because it seems so much smaller than my other cage. mom sent the afternoon placing my perches just right so i can jump from one perch to another. mom then hung ll my toys up, filled the food bowls and placed me in the new cage. it didn't bother me at all. i don't know why mom is so upset. mom keeps measuring the cage to determine why it seems so much smaller. its about 1-1/2 inches shorter in width than my old cage. with everything on moms mind you wouldn't think this would bother her but she can't even sleep and keeps checking on me to see if i am ok. perhaps other things are building in moms small brain and she is focusing them on my cage. the cage is white and the other cage was cream colored so maybe that is making the cage appear smaller or maybe mom is just losing her mind. kings cage is suppose to be a very good cage and dad keeps telling mom she is nuts. also there were sections in the old cage that were completely rusted through but not in any area where i could reach .

dad now has a rash completely covering his body and had mom rub cream on it which dad said made him unbearably itchy so mom has to wash it all off. dad spent the day at another retina specialist and had to cancel his dermatologist appointment. these things always happen just when mom is getting ready to blog for us.

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Another quiet one around here. I've been busy trying to get the puppy to come close enough so that I can give her a nip! Mom keeps telling me no but McKenzie is so trusting and really wants to come closer. Mom told me it wasn't nice to tease her like that so I'm back to chewing some toys for now.
Mom managed to break the little toe on her left foot so she is not walking very quickly today. She doesn't even remember how she did it! She walks into things all the time so she probably banged it on something yesterday! She is a real klutz!!

I hope you are having a great day! Quiet one around here! Mom got most of the kitchen cleaned up but then McKenzie started chasing the cat again so she had to stop and get the puppy. We have managed to get some laundry done but mom is going to have to finish up the kitchen to get George and Gracie's tank cleaned out. I suppose I will help by supervising.
Starting out cloudy here but it's suppose to be back to sunshine this afternoon. We are getting spoiled with all the sunshine lately! No complaints because it's been very pretty. I have been enjoying looking at all the trees coming alive with color and the gardeners planted some primroses out front on Friday. They look so pretty!!

I hope you are having a wonderful day. Very pretty here still and I'm enjoying the sunshine.
Not much going on here today. McKenzie is taking a nap so we are trying to get the notes done before she wakes up. Jennifer is trying to finish her book for the book club meeting tomorrow. It's called Night Circus. Mom tried reading it a few years ago but never really got into the story. It was a bit slow but she may try it again when Jennifer is done. Jennifer hasn't formed an opinion yet so it will be interesting to see how the book club meeting goes.
Mom has read two of the Library's book club selection. She was okay with "Wild" but absolutely loved "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet". It was a wonderful story about a Chinese boy and Japanese girl who become friends in Seattle during WWII.
I should never let mom get started on books!! This note would be going on for days and days!!hehehehehe

I hope you are having a fabulous day! Very sunny and beautiful here. We are suppose to hit 80 today. Not sure if it will happen but there are so many trees outside my bedroom window that it won't feel warm in there anyway.
Mom and dad went to Costco this morning. They went right when it opened so that it wouldn't be too hot for McKenzie in the car. They parked in the shade and left the windows cracked. It wasn't even 60 at that point so she was fine.
McKenzie had a great time at her very first Spa Day yesterday. Her groomers was named Sarah and she is a very nice young lady. McKenzie just loved her and she was very patient with McKenzie when she started to freak out over the blow dryer. Mom took McKenzie over there this morning to give Sarah a thank you card and a tip. McKenzie thought she was going to get another bath!hahahaha Wonder why she likes it at the groomers and not at home?? McKenzie got another food bowl while they were at Petsmart. You are not going to believe this but she chewed up her food bowl! What was she thinking?? She got a lovely pink bowl that is stainless steel on the inside. If there is a way to chew it up I promise you McKenzie will find it! Mom wanted to get her the Seahawk Hoodie but dad thinks we should wait to see if she is going to get any bigger. I think dad doesn't want her wearing clothes but mom is determined that when football season comes around, McKenzie will be wearing the Seahawk colors.
I hope the day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

the house is over run with ants. we have never had a problem like this before. mom cleans our cages everyday. when mom changes Cori soft food her cup is full of ants but you never see any crawling into the cage. there has never been one ant found in MY cage because I AM ON THE BALL and destroy them on sight. if it wasn't for the cats mom would let me loose and that would solve the ant problem. i am the destroyer of all crawly things.
love Boo Boo

  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Very pretty up here again. We are suppose to be reaching 80 tomorrow. A bit early for that but it's only one day. The 70's are perfectly lovely and I think we should just have 70 year round!hehehehehe
I really enjoyed the new Star Wars. There was lots of stuff blowing up and you know that I love that. I think dad liked it too. Mom, Ian and Jennifer had already seen it at the movie theater but said there were things they missed the first time.
I have had a lovely afternoon hanging out with mom. I got to have her all to myself. McKenzie is gone for a spa day at the groomers. First time she has been there. She was putting on her cuteness when mom dropped her off and everyone fell in love with her. She really is a sweet puppy and is very nice to everyone she meets.
I got to run around the living room and that was lots of fun. I got picked up when I started to chew on the carpet! Go figure!
Dad and Ian have gone to pick up McKenzie. She just had a bath and they are going to file her nails also. She has very sharp nails.
The rest of the day will be spent doing the chores we should have done earlier!hahahahaha Playing was much more fun and the chores will still be there later.
Enjoy your day!

  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
I hope you had a great day! It was pretty boring around here. We did laundry and mom cleaned the kitchen up about 3 times. It's our weekend so I imagine we will be doing more chores tomorrow.
Ian got Star Wars in the mail today. He pre ordered it from Amazon. We are going to watch it tonight since dad is still home. He never saw it. I haven't seen it either but mom tells me there is lots of action so I should just love it!!
Hope you enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
I hope you are having a fabulous day! Pretty nice around here still but the rain will be back tonight. I can not complain since so many places are still having snow in April!
Took a shower this afternoon and McKenzie thought I was playing. She jumped up on the front of my play cage! Mom grabbed her and told her no! Dad said it would have been the perfect time for me to use my new "McKenzie No" phrase but I was too busy trying to get over to bite her!
Dad has his Fender guitar hanging on the wall between the living room and the kitchen. It's been there forever! He walked by and strummed it and McKenzie went nuts. She growled and barked! Mom told her it was nothing scary but she does not like it. Dad tried to show it to her but she kept growling. It's back on the wall now but she is keeping an eye on it. She is a very strange puppy!
Uncle Chuck called us this morning. We were surprised. He is doing okay. Mom posted a note on the calendar page and on the BC community page on Facebook.
I hope your day is just stellar!!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Another beautiful spring day up here!
I didn't get too many notes done yesterday. Mom had to go out and was gone longer than she had planned. By the time she got home it was time for bed and dad had already taken over the computer anyway!
Gardeners are here this morning and out mowing. It is keeping McKenzie occupied for a little while at least.
She is shedding and mom has been trying to keep her brushed up. It's difficult because McKenzie still thinks brushing her hair is a game! Mom tried it out on the balcony and there were some tufts of fur left out there. A sparrow came by and collected them! I guess McKenzie's fur is going to be part of their nest! Pretty cool!!
Not much planned for today. Mom does have to go to the market since dad is home and seems to be eating everything!hahahahahah Good thing I have my mini pancakes stashed because he ate all the bread yesterday so not toast for me this morning! Pancakes are just as good!!
Enjoy they day and I hope it's spectacular!

  Hi Pepper
mom was gathering up all my treasures i have hidden all over the room so she doesn't vacuum them up and found that one of the treasures i had hidden in one of my many hiding spots was a hairball from one of the cats. mom says what is junk to one is often a treasure to someone else.

love Boo Boo

  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
I hope you had a great day! It's very pretty up here. The wind is still blowing so it doesn't feel as warm as I'd like but it was still nice.
Mom had lots of cleaning to get caught up on so we did that most of today. Still have things we want to get done but it's our weekend so we have tomorrow also.
I'm an Auntie!! Moms sister canary hatched 3 chicks! There is still one egg to go and I've got my toes crossed the little guy show up soon! Moms sister is rather freaked out and has been doing a lot of reading up on canary babies! I think they'll be just fine.
Uncle Chuck is at the rehab center now. They don't have phones in the rooms so his sister is suppose to bring him his cell phone.
I hope you have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
I hope you are having a wonderful Easter Sunday! McKenzie and I shared a blueberry muffin for breakfast and it was yummy. We don't really celebrate Easter around here since mom always has to work and Ian is still at work. Maybe we will do something when mom is off this week. She did get a couple of vegan chocolate bars and will share them with dad, Ian and Jennifer. I think the muffin was a much better idea!
Jennifer just got back from her sisters house. She went down on Friday for a birthday party for her brother in law. He and Ian share a birthday. They announced the sex of the new baby and Maddie is getting a little sister!! I think Maddie is very excited. I know I can't wait to meet her. They don't have a name picked out yet but I'm sure it will be great.
We talked to Uncle Chuck a while ago and he is doing okay. There is a complete update on from RaneBeau on the calendar page. Jenny and Lalo have gone over to visit with Aunt Denise and the flock which is just wonderful. I know Uncle Chuck feels much better knowing that they are safe and have lots of company.
Enjoy your day and I hope it's a very special Easter for everyone!

  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Uncle Chuck is in the hospital. Mom was worried since we could not contact him and she called Aunt Denise this morning. Aunt Denise called emergency services out there and found out he had been taken to the hospital.
The neighbors are taking care of Jenny and the flock and Aunt Denise will be going by tonight to check on them. I will let every bird know what is going on when I know.
Mom spoke with him for a little bit this morning and he was up and ready to have lunch. He seems a bit confused so we don't really know what is going on at this point but he is being well cared for!
Hope you will say a prayer that he is home with Jenny and the flock soon!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! We did some chores and then mom had to run over to the market to pick up a few things. Dad is making home made pizza tonight. It's Ian's birthday and they both love that pizza. I'll be getting a nice piece of crust!
Nothing else interesting going on here. It's been a mostly quite day and that is just fine!
Hope your evening is just wonderful!

  Hi Pepper
the big fad going on now is flying drones. lots of people are now able to get closer and closer to wildlife to get pictures using the drones. drones are dangerous to wildife. the propellor blades whirl very fast and drone flyers have lost fingers because of them. video on you tube of hawks attacking drones is very dangerous because of the serious injury implications to the hawk. when the drone flys at wildlife and they can't get away they will attack the drone. i guess this is what people want to happen and so they are chasing and harassing the wildlife to get their videos and pictures. incidents of drones being flown close to nesting birds like eagles have also been reported in the Philadelphia area which could potentially cause the parents to abandon the nest and babies.hunters are also now using drones to find out where to kill their prey. PETA was flying drones to monitor illegal hunting activities in Pennsylvania. the hunters complained that PETA had no right to harass them. when PETA found out the drones where upsetting the wildlife like bears they stopped using them. they replied to the hunters that hunting would be much more traumatic to the wildlife since the main goal is to stalk and kill them. Pennsylvania tried to pass laws preventing drone use in hunting but the laws didn't pass. they have signs posted in state and national parks saying it is illegal to fly drones in there but people are ignoring the signs and still harassing and disturbing wildlife. if an area is posted as illegal to enter then if you enter by using a drone you are breaking the law and will receive substantial fines if you are caught. other states are having no problems passing laws prohibiting drone use.
