  Heya, Willie!
Hehe. Mom has not had to clean out my house that much cuz I am only in it at night. She wipes it down and vacuums any feathers and stuff, but the playgym is where I love to mess things up. And boy, do I ever! The bad part is that every night it gets all clean, so every day I have to mess it up.

Today was sunny. Cold. Got down to 21 last night here, so you know it was colder than that when the wind started blowing. We did not see the blood moon, though, cuz I was getting my beauty sleep and Mom was, well, sleeping, too.

Today Mom got a couple calls from agencies for jobs that she was already submitted to by other agencies. Sigh. Not a think new out there. So she did laundry, and dyed her feathers. I hate that part, cuz she puts the swivel sweeper thing up on the pantry door, and I REFUSE to go near it. Effective, too, in keeping me on the playgym and not crawling down to bite on her toes. Gotta figure out a way around that darn thing. But once she was done with that, we had a great time snuggling and she preened my feathers.

She also called about her pension from the hospital. She is going to send in the paperwork for it, as she is able to get most of it now versus waiting for another 4 years for two hundred more, or waiting another year for $50 more. This will definitely help her out a little.

Otherwise, a quiet day here. Mom goes to to the office job interview tomorrow (very low pay, no benefits) so wish her luck.

Kaji

DID YOU KNOW GOV CORBETT IS THE HIGHEST PAID GOVERNOR IN THE US?

THE PLUMBER CAME THIS MORNING TO FIX THE GARBAGE DISPOSAL. HE COULDNT BELIEVE HOW BAD MOMS HANDS LOOK AFTER WORKING TRYING TO REMOVE THE MEASURING SPOON FROM THE DISPOSAL AND TOLD HER SHE NEVER SHOULD HAVE TRIED THAT. HE WORKED AND WORKED AND COULDNT REMOVE THE SMALL MEASURING SPOON. HE FINALLY PULLED THE WHOLE DISPOSAL OUT AND PLACED IT ON THE KITCHEN COUNTER AND WORKED AND WORKED SOME MORE. FINALLY HE TURNED TO MOM AND ASKED MOM TO ONCE AGAIN TRY AND REMOVE THE MEASURING SPOON SINCE HIS HANDS WERE TOO BIG. (MOMS HANDS LOOK LIKE SHE HAS BEEN IN A 10 ROUND BOXING MATCH WEARING NO BOXING GLOVES) MOM ONCE AGAIN ATTEMPTED TO REMOVE THE MEASURING SPOON. NO LUCK! THE PLUMBER THEN SAID IT LOOKS LIKE YOU WILL NEED TO BUY A NEW DISPOSAL BUT LETS TRY ONE MORE THING. HE REMOVED THE DRAIN FROM THE DISPOSAL AND THE SPOON CAME RIGHT OUT. THE PLUMBER SAID THIS WAS A FIRST FOR HIM AND WILL NOW KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT TIME HE EVER FINDS SOMETHING LIKE THIS AGAIN. TOTAL PLUMBING BILL $118. FOR $100 MORE MOM COULD HAVE HAD A NEW DISPOSAL. ANYWAY EVERYTHING IS NOW WORKING AND MOM WENT TO THE HARDWARE STORE AND BOUGHT A DRAIN COVER FOR THE SINK. WHAT A RELIEF THATS OVER.

We are in a freeze warning for tonight. Hope our pretty outside flowers don't freeze!
So you escaped the grooming torture? Yay!
Don't you just hate it when they clean your cage? Jeezzzzz! It takes so long to get it back to the way we like it!

  Hi Willie... TiPaul here
mom is finally getting a little caught up on some of my blogging. Okay - the first thing your mom has to know is, she will still need glasses BUT she cannot get a new prescription of any kind until ay least 6 months after the cataract surgery. That is what Mom told me to tell you. It takes time for the eyes to get used to the new lens and then comes the eye examination and decision on what glasses to get. Mom no longer does any needlepoint or canvas type of stuff. She started to knit something and never finished it. Bad Mom. LOL She cannot crochet for beans and she did try long ago. She is too busy with us birds. The good news is she found herself a LOVELY lady who lives not all that far away who is willing to give Mom a hand with cleaning cages, which would give Mom more time with us, and more time for herself. Usually it takes her two full days to thoroughly scrub our cages on the weekend, and with this lady, and this lady's teenage son (they used to have birds... a long story... a divorce thing - the lady got the house and the man got the birds. :() Mom would get everything done in one day and the other day would be a fast day, and we would have Mom to ourselves to play and she could even go out for a couple of hours if she really wanted to. Well, now, it is soon time for me to get back to my cage and get some sleep. See you tomorrow.

Mom will send your sweet Mom the whole recipe and you can make Essence with spices and herbs you have at home in your kitchen.Emeril has Baby Bam that's in a spice container under his name along with all the other seasonings that he carries in the stores.This morning was a fairly sunny day here but the wind was atrocious! Mom took her area rugs out to beat them outside and hang them on the deck rails to get some air but the wind blew them all over the yard! So much for the rugs getting air,they only fell back into the dirt and Mom had to shake them out a second time!We had two big loud trucks across the street from us all day long sawing down trees and using the loud chipper truck and a guy with a blower blowing all the sawdust into the wind!Our Temperatures were at70 degrees but it didn't feel like it with that wind!
What a greyt day to have an all bird day at the center for your sweet Mom and two trainees!What a wonderful eggspierience for them to have a chance to see the owlet and Martha!I wonder what they thought of wearing the ghillie suit?How wonderful to be working with the blue jays,cardinal and starling,pigeons,doves and woodpecker and that yellow bellied sap sucker sounds quite interesting!
Oh no!Not you too with the birdicure thing! Mom just finished us all yesterday with skin sis' help,I'm so happy that its over for another three weeks!Mom has us all fully flighted but usually in the summer when all the doors are opened and windows she likes to trim our wings just in case,but on the other hand she likes us to get eggcercise too,we have our harnesses that we always go out in too!Its 64 here right now and it looks like its going to rain,we're supposed to get heavy downpours by tomorrow night.Mom went out to the yard today and took pics of our hyacynths and daffodils and primrose that are blooming before they get flattened by the heavy rains!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses,with a wish for a sunny day and lots of those wonderful head scritches and cuddle time with Mom!Loving you always and forever,Peepers

  Heya, Willie!
Oh, now that is cool that trainees are coming to help out. Bet they looked funny in those suits, too! Large walking leaf piles or something like that. Hehe!

Okay, so it is almost the middle of April. Why is there white stuff falling from the sky? Yesterday and last night there was rain. Today, these white flakes are falling. I though it was spring! Mom said it was spring! I sure do want to believe her, but that white stuff is what we had in winter. And I have to say, I am happy it is not sticking to the ground much. Maybe it will go away. Sure hope so!

Mom got rejected for another job. Then she applied for one, and got a phone call from the recruiter, and from the account manager, and she is being submitted for the position. it is from the company that she was submitted to for other positions, so she has little hope of actually getting in there.It would be a fun job, though, and she would dearly love to get in there as they tend to keep their contract folks forever. And the contract place pays benefits, so that is nice. But again, I told Mom not to get too excited about it, cuz she feels so sad when she never hears anything, or they send a thanks-but-no-thanks letter.

Anyway, I am going to glare out the window so that white stuff goes away.

We had a nice sunny day here today and it was in the 60's but you'd never know it by how cold it felt outside!There was a slight breeze also so Mom didn't feel like going outside to prune the hydrangea or the rose bush.Skin sis spent the day here and both she and Mom made hot cinnamon rolls which I got to sample some of!Mom made Kicked Up Stuffed Garlic Bread for lunch and skin sis really loved that,you make garlic bread with Italian bread,spread the Essence mixture over the bread with Emeril's recipe for it,bake that in the oven and while that is toasting up you take a pan and put garlic,onions till they get carmelized,and then add the fresh green peppers and saute that til they are tender but still bright green,take the bread put that between the bread and put it back in the oven for 5 minutes and its ready to eat!
Does my Mom understand how that is with the c/p and that's the way its been going for us too lately as Mom has been up til two or 3 am just trying to get all our visits in as her days have been spent doing things with the skin sibs and going out and getting back late!

Oh, gosh! How awful for your Mom to have to waste time driving around and they did not have anything for her set up. Sheesh! And no problem on the c/p, cuz that is what I have for today, too. Just a nice quiet day here.

Holey Moley! What a night of storms we had last night! Thunder, lightening, pounding rain! How in the heck is a guy supposed to get his beauty sleep? Then of course, Mom woke up in the middle of the night, which woke me up too. She says the storm woke her--not so much the thunder but the rain and lightening. And today was dark and dismal, and the temperature steadily fell. And the rain came again! We have had so much of it that the folks who live close to rivers have to watch for flooding. And driving in low lying areas is not a piece of cake, either. Mom says she is glad she is home. She brought me back some coleslaw and some roast beef from Grandpa's. YUM!!

Not much else happening here. And that is great for a Sunday!

WOW WHAT A GORGEOUS DAY TODAY. ITS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE WE HAD ONE OF THOSE. PROBABLY THE REASON MAP QUEST COULDNT FIND THE SHOPPING CENTER IS BECAUSE YOUR MOM DIDNT GIVE IT THE RIGHT NAME. THERE ARE ABOUT 3 MAJOR SHOPPING CENTERS IN CRANBERRY AND THEY ARE BUILDING MORE AND MORE STORES EVERY DAY. CAN YOU BELIEVE ONLY ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO THAT WAS ALL FARMS AND APPLE ORCHARDS AND EVERYONE OWNED HORSES. NOW THEY ARE ALL GONE.

  Heya, Willie!
When it comes to maps, Google has the others beat. So tell your Mom to use Google Maps. Mom does that all the time when she has to go to these job places, and she uses the satellite view so she can actually see what the building looks like, or the buildings around it, look like. hehe.

Well, have to tell ya, Mom slept UNTIL 9 AM! Of course, it was dark and overcast, so I guess she had no idea that it was time to get up. She didn't set her alarm. I had to remind her that it was time to feed me, so she finally crawled out from under the covers to get me out of my house and fed. It was in the 40's and was supposed to get to 60 today, but it did not. Something called 'cooler by the lake'. Mom finally got out to the grocery store around 2 PM--the rain had stopped by then, and the sun came out for a little while. Now it is raining the crazy--you can hear it hitting the roof really hard. There was even some lightening. The worst of the storms are to the north of us, but holy moley, that rain was pounding the roof pretty good. Guess it will be this way all night.

Mom brought me back my little yellow tomatoes and my sugar snap peas, and carrots, and gosh I have to tell you, they are sooo good! I wanted to go with her, but she said that they would not let me in the store. And it was too chilly outside, anyway. I forgave her cuz she brought me back my favorites.

Thanks for the encouragement for Mom. She told her IT buddy in Chicago what went on, and he was pretty mad about what Mom was told. He also said that they should give her a try--the problem is, they want someone who can go into any business where the agency sends them and know what has to be done using some specific skills or tools. Mom doesn't have that type of training, as it was never required for her job. Since this is the thing they want with agency people, and they pay really, really well...Mom could not BS the guy and say she could do what someone else might do. Well, Mom could, but if she went in to that place and could not do the work, she would be so appalled. She can't lie like that. What she is good at was the stuff that she did, and the knowledge of the old company. Could she learn? You betcha. But these agency jobs don't give you much of a chance to learn. You have to be able to do the job when you walk in the door. That is what they pay you for.

If it is meant for something to come along, it will. If not, Mom will figure something out.

Off to get my popcorn! Hope your Saturday night is super!

We woke up to a cold morning,the sun trying to come out and by afternoon it was quite warm and everyone was out in just sweaters or no coats of any kind!Mom and Dixie got to go to Nana's house,where he stayed with my cousin Trixie II as they went on their errand runs,dump etc!Mom continued her search for a birthday gift for her sister,who's birthday was the 9th of last month and finally gave up and got her a gift card for Home Goods,which can be used at TJ Maxx and Marshall's also.They went to True Value a hardware store and Mom had some deck paint made up for our deck.She had to come back later in the day as the kid that ran the paint mixing machine wasn't there,so she got that later,then they went to some grocery stores,the bank,dollar store and Post Office and vacuum store.Skin sis called Mom early this morning and told her the surgeons visit was moved to Wednesday next week and they're telling her that she will have to have pins put in her hips or upper legs.
Nana's pretty yellow daffodils are coming up now and they really look pretty!

  Hey Willie!
Thanks for liking my picture! Did you see Pumbaa in the picture? I snuck him in! Heehee!
Hmmmm....my mom goes to Lens Crafters too. She has the progressive lens too and they can make her glasses in an hour .
That's great that your mom is treating her problem early and that the prognosis is good!
Wow! Polly sounds like she is doing great!
Hope you had a great evening,

  Heya, Willie!
Awww. Polly is doing so good. And as for the treatment for the macular degeneration--Mom says that new treatments come along all the time for so many things. And years ago there wasn't anything for either form. Now there is for the wet stuff. Maybe as time goes on there will be more. And that is what we are praying for.

Ah, Friday! Yes indeedy--I got to go with Mom to Goodwill today! It started to rain a bit, too, and that was pretty cool to see on the windshield of the car. When we came home Mom opened up the door to the front of the building and let me watch the rain come down. Now that was awesome. It was just a very gentle shower, and it was over by the time we walked up the stairs. Now the sun is out. And we are 66 degrees! YES! This is what I am talking about. We have to get more of these days--maybe they will show up?

Mom's meet and greet went okay. She was fairly sad, though, when the program manager person (who is also part owner) told her that she did not have type of skills to do the job at that new place. Mom did specialized work in her old job...and the title she had is definitely not the same as others who do the work at a company. Mom wanted badly to say if they had jobs for 'flunkies' like her. She appreciated the guys honesty--and she felt like that is why she never gets called for any real positions. She doubts that they will find anything that she can actually do there. That office job is looking mighty good about now. And with Mom's luck, she won't qualify for that one, either. Sheesh.

Off to get some food and then snuggle with Mom. Hope your Friday night is great!

Your buddy,
Kaji

  HI WILLIE
SORRY I DIDNT GET ON THE PUTER YESTERDAY. I BLAME IT ON MOM AND HER DRAPERY PROJECT. ANYWAY I WAS READING ABOUT YOUR MOMS EYES. WILL TELL YOU ABOUT OUR G-MA WHO AT 92 HAS HAD PRACTICALLY EVERYTHING DOE. ANYWAY SHE HAD THE CATARAC SURGERY IN HER LATE 60'S. IN THE EXAM THEY DISCOVER SHE HAD WET MAC IN ONE EYE AND DRY IN THE OTHER. THEY DID THE CATARAC OPERATOIN ANYWAY BUT 3 MONTHS APART. THEN THE WET EYE MAC WAS GETTING WORSE SO THEY DID LAZER SURGERY WHICH ACTUALLY MAKES YOUR VISION WORSE BUT STOPS THE WET MAC PROGRESSION. G-MA GOES IN ABOUT EVERY 2 WEEKS TO GET INJECTIONS IN HER EYES FOR THE WET MACULAR DEGENERATION. NOW THEY HAVE DISCOVERED THAT THE GLAUCOMA WHICH SHE ALSO HAS IS GETTING MUCH WORSE SO SHE NOW HAS TO GET AN APPOINTMENT AND FIND OUT HOW THEY WANT TO TREAT THAT. I SAY GIVE HER SOME WEED AND LET HER ENJOY LIFE. WONDER IF THE DOCTOR WILL AGREE? LOL

LOVE BOO BOO

ps HAPPY TGIF DAY

  Hi Willie
Happy Friday! That's really good that your mom thinks they caught it in time and that the shots will help stop the progression. Helps that your mom has a friend to talk to who has that so she can know what to expect.
Pretty nice here today mid 60's with sun off and on. It's my mom's day off and I'm getting lots of time with her.
Great to here about Polly too she seems to be coming along so nicely. Have a good afternoon.

  Heya, Willie!
Oh, sure! Mom feels like a 'duh' about the lens being changed in your Mom's current glasses after her surgery. Mom plans on doing the lens replacement when she gets her eyes checked (after she gets a job, or gets her money from the 401k). She likes her frames, and she will not be able to do all of them, but she will be very happy to have just the lenses changed if she needs it. Lenscrafters is where Mom goes, too. So that is good. And we are hoping that everything can be fixed for your Mom's vision. Sending prayers your way, too!

Oh, gosh, it was a lovely day out after around 1 PM. We had overcast, grey skies earlier, and some occassional rain showers. Then the sun came out and warmed up outside. We had 62 degrees here! And it is supposed to be nice tomorrow, too--I am hoping Mom takes that stuff over to Goodwill tomorrow with me. She says she needs to do that. She also wants to call to get the car checked cuz she heard some kind of rattling noise at idle. She could not tell where it was coming from, though. Guess it is also time for an oil change--but she sure has not driven 3000 miles since last November at all. Still she wants to make sure the car is okay.

I took a HUMUNGOUS bath in my water dish today. Hehe. Mom did not know until she walked over to my playgym and there I was, all wet. And boy, did the water go everywhere! She cleaned it up, and then got me to be Spa Bird. Settled down on her shoulder and napped as I dried. Mom's make great places to dry off!

Mom got a call from someone who works at a recruiting agency in our downtown area. She found Mom's resume on Dice, and she told Mom that they have a new client who is looking for a business analyst. Mom had to check to make sure that she was not talking about the dozen other companies Mom has been submitted to. When the recruiter told her about the company, Mom nearly dropped over. It is the same company that Auntie Judy, Mom's sister, used to work for before they moved the office to Ohio. And that is where Mom got to meet her boss and his wife--and he was the BEST boss Auntie Judy ever had. Mom keeps in touch with him to this day. His wife died about 2 years ago. They were the two nicest people ever, and were very good to Auntie Judy. Anyway, Mom goes to meet with the recruiter tomorrow. She hopes that being older is not a problem. She knows it is not an interview with the company she would work for, but maybe this company will find her something.

Drats. That means my Mom time is gonna be cut down tomorrow. If she takes me to Goodwill in the car with her, I will forgive her.

Thursday night vote coming right up!

Kaji

Its a beautiful sunny day here today with temperatures of 52 degrees but the wind has really kicked up and so it feels colder but like you said as long as there's that sunshine up there in the sky,who's complaining!

  Hello Willie
Although the temps are warmer still waiting to see more signs of spring here but I know they will be coming.
Sounds like a good choice to me that your mom made at least seeing clear out of one eye is good.Nice that lens crafters can replace one lens.
Hooray for mom time today my mom is off tomorrow so I should get lots of time with her.Have a great afternoon.

  Hey Willie!
That's great that your spring flowers are finally coming up ! We have lots of daffodils blooming along with the hyacinths ! I think spring is finally here for us!
So happy your mom made her decision about her eye surgery. Can Lens Crafters make her glasses in an hour? Mom likes that place !
That is awesome that your mom is going to spend the day with you after she gets back from the center! You have an awesome mom!
Have a great day!
Love,
Raffikki....ps....Love your Derby picture buddy! What a dude!

  HI WILLIE
G-MA WAS SHIPPED BACK TO HER HOME BUT ISNT STAYING IN HER APARTMENT WITH G-PA. THEY ARE KEEPING HER IN THE HEALTH CARE CENTER FOR NOW WHILE SHE HEALS. SHE IS DOING VERY WELL. MOM TRIED TO CALL HER LAST NIGHT BUT SHE WASNT IN HER ROOM. SHE WAS ATTENDING A TALENT SHOW AT THE HOME.

WE JUST LEARNED SOMETHING NEW TONIGHT FROM A 14 YEAR OLD KID FROM ENGLAND WHO WAS ON THE DAVID LETTERMAN SHOW BECAUSE HE BUILT A NUCLEAR FUSION REACTOR IN HIS GARAGE. HE IS TRYING TO MAKE THE NUCLEAR FUSION REACTOR BETTER AT PRODUCING ENERGY. WHAT IS USED TODAY ARE NUCLEAR FISION REACTORS. NUCLEAR FISION SPLITS THE ATOM CREATING TONS OF RADIOACTIVE WASTE THAT THEN MUST BE DISPOSED OF PROPERLY. OF COURSE WE HEAR THE HORROR STORIES DAILY OF ILLEGAL DUMPING OF NUCLEAR FISION WASTE MATERIAL INTO OUR DRINKING WATER AND ON OUR LANDS. A NUCLEAR FUSION COMBINES THE ATOMS AND CREATES NO WASTE RADIOACTIVE OR OTHERWISE. STRANGE HOW A 14 YEAR OLD HAS A BETTER UNDERSTANDING ON
WHAT WOULD BE BETTER TO USE FOR ENERGY THAN ALL THE ENERGY COMPANIES NOW IN EXISTENCE. HOPEFULLY THAT KID WILL BE OUR SAVING FUTURE!

HAPPY HUMPDAY
