  Heya, Willie!
Ginger ale is great--so are ginger capsules for the nausea. Your Mom is not taking medication for high blood pressure or using a diuretic--those things could cause the nausea and dizziness if she is low on potassium. She also could have one of those bugs that love to show up, too. We hope she is feeling better now. If not, she should get herself to her doctor or a clinic to make sure all is okay. (Mom's orders!)

Mom got an in person interview!! At the law office. She will go in this week--she heard late in the day, so she told the gal anytime Wed-Fri works. She is pretty excited, and nervous. This is very positive. This morning she got a call from another agency place who wanted her to interview up in West Bend. That is 31 miles away, one way. Mom turned it down, as it was just too far away. She did a similar commute for 3.5 years, and she swore that she would not do that again. And in winter--oh, no. She is not excited by that thought. The law office is across the street from her old work main building. She is definitely agreeable to that--less than 10 miles versus 31? Oh yeah.

Wing hugs coming your way, and make sure to take care of your Mom!

We are so worried about Aunt Arlene!We are so hoping that the ginger ale helped with the nauseousness.We so hope she is feeling much better today.She really works so hard and needs to take some time to relax with you.She even was thinking of you when she was at the store and got you some mango,cucumber,pepper,yam and berries,how awesome that even though she was feeling sick she brought you all home something special also!
Your poor Mom even went to work at the center and spent all that time feeding the bats and cleaned their cages also!It was so good that the staff member told your poor Mom to go home after cleaning the bats.It was raining here today also and cold.It was good that your awesome Mom got to stay inside with you and cuddle and you all could make her feel better.Please give her a warm hug from Mom and Nana and everyone here to help her feel better.Please let us all know if she is doing all right!We so worry about her!And give her all our love too!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! I am busy trying to pull toys from the top of the cage into the play cage! It's lot of fun but I have not been able to get any of the toys inside!
I do not go out on the balcony. It usually is windy here and we live right on a 6 lane highway and mom figures that all that exhaust is not good for me. She has been looking at bird strollers. We could only use it for a few months a year but it might be fun. I could go to Bradley Lake and walk around it like mom and Mandy use to. Dad thinks I won't like but mom is still researching it.
Have a wonderful day!

  Hey Willie!
I finished Miss Cydney's & Miss Princess' hats last night only to discover, like the lunk head that I am, I put the wrong hats on the wrong fisters! Oh me, the LOOK Mom gave me this morning! With her & Miranda's help, I switched them very fast but not as fast as you'd think. Those fisters do look a lot alike but one's head is 1/2 a millimeter smaller than the other's. So with some nipping here, adding there, all is okay now. I hope their good Momma will like the pictures. They sure are pretty lady birds.

Mom is going for another "dance class" with Ashlynn in about an hour or so. This is the "short" day. The class is only 30 minutes but it will be over at a quarter of 5pm. Right at rush hour again. Mom will be driving more than she will get time with Ashlynn. She's bagged up some of Annie's whole wheat graham bunnies along with some apple juice box drink. You know how it is to practice so hard & need a snack & drink afterwards! Mom let me eat a half of a bunny. I liked it pretty good. Mom couldn't tell if I was just turning it into fine powder or if I was really eating it. She said it looked like a buzz saw going through timber by the pile of fine crumbs I left in my bowl. Sometimes a good snack for a bird is to change it from a solid to a powder. That's all I got to peep about it.

Hope you're having a greyt day. Hugs to all, SamIAm

  Heya, Willie!
Well, the company Mom worked at is not the contracting company, and the company is advertising to get employees, not contractors. Plus they probably posted it around the same time Mom's contract ended. Most of the stuff that happens at the company is not well disseminated, either. They suffer from being about 10 years behind technologically, so it doesn't surprise Mom one bit.

Glad you liked Peppino's hat! We thought it was pretty cool. He is so pretty in a manbird kind of way, if you know what I mean.

Only got to the 50's. And it is raining now. Not hard, but looks like it will be thru tomorrow. Mom said it would have been a lovely day for a nap, but guess who wanted head scritches? Yup. She says she sure would have appreciated that nap, but it sure did not happen.

So Mom applied for her 4 jobs this week already. Now the unemployment place makes you enter your job search online, which they did not do last time around. UGH. But Mom looks and sends off her applications. She knows a lot of folks don't.

Wing hugs coming your way!

This morning was a bright sunny morning but quite cold out there! Our highs for the day will be 53 and the lows will be 39,its 50 right now and cold.Mom had planned to take us all out on the deck today to enjoy some sunshine but that's not going to happen now.Mom got us all up early and cleaned our cages and room and we got some fresh bean mix and then she did all the vacuuming on the whole downstairs.Mom was going to go outside today to plant the mini daffodil plants on Mario's grave but its too cold to put the plants out there now.Then Mom was getting ready to get more things done when skin bro IM' d her and wanted her to drive him to Buzzard's Bay to pick up his bike which is over the Bridge.Mom dropped everything she was doing and started to get her car ready to put the bike in and then to go and get dressed when my dad told her that he would drive skin bro to Buzzard's Bay to get the bike.So he finished taking all the stuff out of Mom's car,our car seat,Mom's lumbar support on her seat,and all Mom's crates in the trunk for groceries.Skin bro came and dad took off with skin bro and her car.Mom is happy about that as she just hates driving.Dad was raking leaves in the yard but they were all wet and yucky from the rain and snow and he just jumped at the chance to drive skin bro to get his bike.He was going to burn more brush but the wind was way too strong for that.Mom may still go out and clean out her flower garden later on as she really wants to see whats coming up and if her bleeding heart plants are going to return this year.

  Hello Willie! .
Thanks for liking my red hat picture! I was just trying to match up with Miss Miranda, her being all in red. I was inspired by her lovely tail feathers. Should I say that out loud? Maybe I should keep that just between good friends.

I had found this WONDERFUL jacket that was a navy blue background, with white & red vertical stripes. The stripes were very thin. It was a spectacular jacket but the site wouldn't allow us to "borrow" it. Well, you know how what you've been shopping around for comes up as ads on the sides of your pages when you are at other websites? Well, it popped up there, so Mom figured it wouldn't hurt to see if we could "take" it from that. AND we did it!! I don't know how well the photo will be since it was smaller than its original place but it would've been GREYT with my red hat. I might have to do it for next year's derby. Mom has it now on her computer to use later. Maybe even for someone else!!

Mom better go. There's lightening & tornado watch is up until 8pm. I've been coming by to see if Cydney or Princess have left their pretty hat for Mom to do. I hope we don't lose the internet again. I hope we don't see ANY tornadoes, either!

HAHA! I have to tell you, Mom found the old Rawhide Theme Song on YouTube & then "birdie-fied" the words to it on Mikey D's page. It's pretty cute. Mom was rather appalled at the "just rope, tie, and brand them" words & had to change THAT immediately! Which she did. It was very funny to her & she was laughing all through that song. It just doesn't take much to set off her giggle fits. She needs more friends, I think.

Hugs to all & keepin' our heads down & watching the skies! Hope your day is better! SamIAm

I hope you are having a fabulous day! It is way too windy for me to go out on the balcony. The wind actually feels cool even though we are up in the 70's. It's shady out there during the day so I'd have to have a blanket over my carrier anyway!
Mom is cooking some ground turkey for Mandy and then she is heading off to bed. Mandy has been enjoying rotisserie chicken for the past 4 days and has loved it! This morning she had some with mixed veggies and mac and cheese! She ate every bit of it. Mom has been trying to give her different things. Mandy seems to be enjoying it! She is shedding up a storm so she is getting brushed everyday. She likes that too!
I hope you enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Yes I'm going to enter the hat contest I bet there's going to be so many great entries to chose from its always such a fun milonga.
Sounds like your mom didn't think the movie was to bad at least she thought the ending was neat.
Sorry you guy were in lock down I always scream my displeasure when I'm locked down and missing out on action.
Cloudy today with rain moving in later. Think it's going to be a quiet day with my mom heading out for a bit to grab a few groceries. Have a good afternoon.

  Hi Willie
CONCLUSION ON SPIDERS
Cellar spiders which have super long legs like daddy long legs (which are not spiders) love to eat ants. if you have those tiny tiny little ants running around in your house cellar spiders will eat all of them.
3. Antarctica is the only continent in the world where you will absolutely not find a spider. There are creatures who live there like whales and penguins, but people and spiders stay away from the Antarctica lifestyle. because arthropods like to keep their butts warm, just like humans do.
4. Spiders possess shyness as a personality trait just like people .Spiders, even large ones like tarantulas, are docile in nature. Most spiders are inherently shy critters. They get squished more often than they actually bite humans. Spiders will defend themselves in rare cases, but these buggies mostly get scared and hide in the presence of danger.Because of their shyness they ALMOST NEVER seek out humans to bite. When spiders and humans come in contact, it is usually when they are looking for warmth or just happen to be seeking out food and we bump into each other.
5. Although we have all the eyes that we need, both spiders and humans rely on our other senses.You would think having eight eyes would be all the eyes that you need to see perfectly, but for most spiders that is not the case. Nearly all spiders have eight simple eyes, but having six more peepers than us, doesn’t make their vision any more superior since most arachnids have poor eyesight. On average, over six out of 10 people need to wear glasses or contact lenses, making our visual impairments almost identical to that of spiders. Instead, both spiders and people depend on our other senses, like sound, taste and touch, to help us survive. Nobody’s perfect; not people with two eyes nor arthropods with a whopping eight.

it is a pain to remove all those webs, mainly because they gather so much dust but consider letting spiders be or releasing them back outside the next time you see arachnid amigos in your home. plus i find them quite tasty

  Heya, Willie!
How was the movie? Mom has not seen it. Bet the pizza was good--and hope you got some!!

We had sun today, but it was not as warm as yesterday. And it was windy too. Mom went to get her feathers trimmed, and then did groceries. Brought me back some sugar snap peas and carrots, and watermelon for her and Grandpa--no seeds though cuz that is not in yet. But the rind will be mine--and my beak is sure gonna be happy! I have been velcroed to her, and very, very, affectionate. She wanted to take a nap, and I wanted to get a head scritch. Guess who won? That head scritch felt so darn good, too. Took a huge bath as well. Nothing better than clean feathers. Mom laughed cuz I would go from my water dish to the bath bowl.

Get this: the company Mom worked for thru the contracting place has an ad for the role Mom did. They are hiring people. Interesting. Anyway, Mom put in her application, cuz she worked there. She will never get the pay like contracting, but it would be funny to come back there as an employee. Not with the same team, for sure. So she is gonna see if they call her. Not likely but...what the heck.

This morning was a beautiful spring day here with the bright sunshine and the warmth that it brought with it!The highs for the day were 65 the lows will be 41 and it went as high as 68 today and warm enough for us to sit out on the deck with Mom but that never happened because the neighbor one house away was burning leaves and stuff and he had the whole neighborhood,our area all clouded up with smoke.Mom wouldn't take us out there.She cleaned our cages and we had to wait for some fresh bean mix to be made up as she was too tired last night to do it then.After she gave us our breakfast she and dad took off to go to Nana's to pick up some of her bills she wanted to put in the mail(dad drove Mom to the post office in Teaticket to mail them there and then they went to Walmart to get some wild bird seed,two big bags 40lbs each and some water enhancer for my dad.Mom hasn't been able to get the wild bird seed because she can't lift those heavy bags into the cart and then get them out of the cart to put them in the car.Then they went to DQ and dad got his salted caramel blizzard that he's been wanting.They both sat out in the sunshine while they ate,Mom got one with all berries and strawberries in it.From there they went back home where dad dug a grave for Mario and when it was ready Mom got Mario and placed him in the nice casket that skin sis made for him all decorated with lettering out of that soft rubbery craft stuff.She had shiny purple paper around the whole thing and a soft pink cloth type material inside for him to lay on.The dates she put on top in the foam material were yellow,she had a pretty yellow ribbon around the length of the box also.Mom and dad said some prayers after he was interred and then Mom did some pruning of the hydrangea bush,she's going to get out there tomorrow and finish it with the clippers and then rake the flower garden out to see what flowers are coming up.They were home for another hour and then they were both off again but they were home by 5:00pm.Mom made pizza for dinner and we all got to have some crust and was it good!Mom is hoping to stay home tomorrow all day so she can get some things done.

  Hi Willie
love the picture. looks like heavy betters trying to influence the jockey
the more spiders we have around the less chance for the need of any poisonous insecticides.for the next 2 days i would like to talk about SPIDERS. my mom and Cori are very afraid of them but would never hurt one .Spiders are one of our most misunderstood creatures. There are movies about them taking over your house, they are depicted in autumn decorations designed to scare people,but spiders are just like us. From our mutual disdain for mosquitoes and some species tend to their young, we have a lot in common with this arachnid . Plus, We need spiders in order to survive.Before you squash that spider that you just spied crawling across your floor, consider these five fascinating facts about these eight-leggers.
1. Mother spiders stay with their babies, just like we do.Almost all spider moms protect their young by creating a safe “blanket” made of silk to cover them with and then guard the sac until hatching. The moms that don’t leave or die before their babies hatch will stay with their wee spiderlings and care for them. The wolf spider, who is known as super-spider-mom, will carry the egg sac with her until her tots hatch. Once the wolf spider babies are born, they climb onto mom’s back and ride along until they are full developed. They survive by eating the yolk from their egg sacs. The wolf spider babies go everywhere that mama goes, including during her hunting. If a baby falls off of her back, she will halt what she’s doing and wait for the little bugger to hop back on. Comb-footed spider mamas also stay with their little ones and feed their offspring with liquid from their mouths. This all sounds a bit like attachment parenting.
2. We have the same archenemy: the mosquito. over one million people die each year due to mosquito-borne illnesses? There are 10 major diseases that are caused by these little buzzers, including Malaria and the West Nile virus. Well, our friend the spider eats those pesky pests. In fact, certain spider species, like the Malaysian jumping spider, get their nutrition solely from mosquitoes. Another jumping spider from Africa is known to eat mosquitoes exclusively, unlike most spiders who eat mosquitoes and other insects. Spiders are also known to stalk mosquitoes like cats

That sure sounds really good the way your awesome Mom makes the artichokes.Mom will try and make them like that the next time she gets one,it really sounds so good!Mom loves garlic and oil on most everything!
How awesome that Aunt Arlene got to work with the babies,squirrels and bunnies!Those babies must be so sweet and precious!
It was a dark,dismal,dreary,raining day here all day long.Mom got soaked running errands with Nana for Skin sis and going to the dump was not much fun in the rain.Mom came home late tonight and is so very tired.Hopefully she'll be home tomorrow for a little while longer!

Mom got a picture of Peppino from his page and will give it a go. She is more than happy to give it a whirl. You can check out my picture in the gallery, too. She just got that done. Will send you the finished product.

I went out in the CAR with Mom today to Goodwill, and then we went to get our good popcorn at the popcorn place. Boy, did I have a ball! Yelled and chirped and saw a robin outside, too. I said hi, but he looked a little scared of another bird talking to him.

Glorious day today. Was 73 when we went in the car. Started to get cooler though as the wind came off the lake. There was a 12 degree difference there: 61. Of course, next week is all 50's if we are lucky. Still, it was so wonderful to be outside again, and going places with Mom!!

Have a super evening, and Mom will send you the Peppino picture when she gets it done.

I too enjoy letting the joy out from time to time. It's okay that she doesn't like to be touched. There are so many birds like that and it is wonderful that your mom lets her be the way she is. I think there are a lot of birds in rescues because they are not cuddly and their humans just couldn't let them be the way they are. I am not cuddly all the time and I still bite every once in a while but mom says she loves me just the way I am!

New data from the highly secretive arm of the U.S. Agriculture Department known as Wildlife Services reveals it killed more than 2.7 million animals during fiscal year 2014, including wolves, coyotes, bears, mountain lions, beavers, foxes, eagles and other animals deemed pests by powerful agricultural, livestock and other special interests.Despite increasing calls for reform after the program killed more than 4 million animals in 2013, the latest kill report indicates the reckless slaughter of wildlife continues, including 322 gray wolves, 61,702 coyotes, 580 black bears, 305 mountain lions, 796 bobcats, 454 river otters, 2,930 foxes, three bald eagles, five golden eagles and 22,496 beavers. The program also killed 15,698 black-tailed prairie dogs and destroyed more than 33,309 of their dens.

“It’s sickening to see these staggering numbers and to know that so many of these animals were cut down by aerial snipers, deadly poisons and traps,” said Amy Atwood, a senior attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity. “These acts of brutality are carried out every day, robbing our landscapes of bears, wolves, coyotes and other animals that deserve far better. Wildlife Services does its dirty work far from public view and clearly has no interest in cleaning up its act.”Agency insiders have revealed that the agency kills many more animals than it reports.

Many animals – especially wolves, coyotes and prairie dogs – were targeted and killed on behalf of livestock grazers or other powerful agricultural interests. Wildlife Services does not reveal how many animals were wounded or injured, but not killed.
The new data also show that hundreds animals were killed unintentionally including 390 river otters, as well as hundreds of badgers, black bears, bobcats, coyotes, foxes, jackrabbits, muskrats, raccoons, skunks, opossums, porcupines and 16 pet dogs.

The data show that the federal program has refused to substantially slow its killing despite a growing public outcry, an ongoing investigation by the Agriculture Department’s inspector general, and calls for reform by scientists, members of Congress and nongovernmental organizations.“Wildlife Services continues to thumb its nose at the growing number of Americans demanding an end to business as usual,” said Atwood. “This appalling and completely unnecessary extermination of American wildlife must stop.”Just since 1996 Wildlife Services has shot, poisoned and strangled by snare more than 27 million native animals.

  Heya, Willie!
Yeah, Mom is having a time adjusting to not working. It is weird. When she worked, she wanted to be off. Now she is off, she wants to work. Silly Mom!

I, however, have enjoyed having her here. Though I did bite her on the ear and it drew blood. I don't know why I did it, either. Mom says it is because I am being hormonal again. Still. Yet.

It is supposed to be 70 here tomorrow, too! Mom says we are going to take the stuff she packed up to goodwill, and then to the apple orchard place to pick my popcorn. I know it is gonna be great to get out with Mom in the CAR. And she will take me in to the apple orchard cuz it is an open kinda store, and they don't mind if I drop in with Mom--we never stay long cuz she doesn't want anybody to yell about me being in there. The place closes in May, so we have to get our stash of pc to last us until August when they open again. We have popcorn every night, so you know we have to have a good supply!

Totally love the picture with you, Peppino and Sam! Are you entering it in the contest? Sure hope so!

Wing hugs coming your way!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Willie
Now that artichoke steamed with garlic and sprinkled with olive oil really sounds so good!Nana used to make the artichokes stuffed with the meat and bread stuffing covered in sauce.It was a messy dish with pulling out the leaves and scraping them clean with your teeth!
This morning was a bright sunny morning and the highs for the day are 53 and the lows will be 42 its 55 right now! Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and then swept up our room and then she scrubbed both bathrooms upstairs and down and took all the area rugs and beat them all outside and hung them on the deck rails to get some air and blow around in the wind a bit.Then she walked around the yard and took pictures of our flowers that are beginning to bud and flower and so far the only flowers we have are the yellow primrose and the hyacinths are budding as are the lilies and some other plants.Mom is still on the lookout for her bleeding hearts and hopes that they'll come up this year.She lost her white ones last year and a pink one so all she's got left are two pink bleeding hearts if they are still there somewhere.She's hoping to get out in the flower garden on Sunday and rake all the leaves away so she can really see what's still there.The tiger lilies are coming up along the fence and some of the daffodil leaves are up also.Mom also got a picture of our only crocus that didn't get smashed by the heavy mountains of snow that were laying on top of them. Then she took the filter out of the heat box and took that outside and cleaned that off and put it back in.After Mom gets done with her chores she will be spending the rest of the day with us.She still has to collect the trash to go to the dump tomorrow along with Nana's trash and then she will be running into Falmouth to get skin sis's errands done for her and to bring her the meds she's got waiting at the pharmacy.Its going to be another long day for Mom tomorrow so she's got to get as much as she can get done today.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for sweet Willie,Loving you always and forever,Peepers

  Hey Willie!
Love your Derby picture!
Once, many many years ago....my mom ran out of gas. That never happened again because my mom will never let her car get below half a tank! So between having doubles of anything important, and plenty of gas in her car......I think she has everything covered! Heehee!
Hope your mom had a nice dinner out tonight!
Sounds like you had a nice day with your mom!
My mom has a busy weekend coming up so we won't be back on BC until Monday.
Have a great weekend!

  Hello Willie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Oh Merlin is not feral. Someone down a the other end of the complex had him. He did not provide a litter box and expected Merlin to go outside to do his business! Well I guess Merlin had an accident in the house and the guy threw him out. We know the story because he told one of the maintenance guys. When dad found him, he went over to the office to see if anyone reported a cat missing and the maintenance guy told dad the story. He told him that some of the kids down there had been feeding him for a few weeks. We don't know why he made his way to this side of the complex but that is how dad found him! Guess it was a good day for Merlin!
Enjoy the day!

  Hi Willie
This morning was a nice bright sun shiny morning and the highs for the day were 60 degrees with the lows being 38 and right now at 7:00pm its 57 and still a bit sunny! Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and swept up our room and then she got Dixie ready to go in his carrier and off she went to Nana's.By the time she got there Nana had already had the OT come and evaluate her and then Nana was ready for Mom to take her to run some errands.They only had an hour to spare before the VNA that gives her a shower came so they only went up to the post office so Nana could mail some letters,Mom ran in with them while she waited in the car,then they went over to go to Marshall's but they were running out of time as it took time to circle around for a parking spot.So they went back to Nana's to wait for her VNA to come to give her a shower.The VNA told Mom that Nana was really doing so good,she was fast and was doing the whole shower practically on her own.Then as soon as she left 15 minutes later the PT VNA came to work out with Nana and she came and put the belt around Nana having her walk around the house first with her cane and then they went outside,first through the garage door and the PT had Nana open the garage door on her own then Nana got down the two steps there and Mom came with them and brought Dixie out with her and they walked all over the front yard,then the back yard.When they came inside the PT took Nana in her room and did more stretching exercises on her bed.By the time the PT left it was well after 3:00pm and both Mom and Nana hadn't eaten any lunch.So Mom took Nana to Subway and they got a sub there and then went to Stop&Shop to get fruit for my cousins and pick up some other sale items and mark down fruits and veggies.Then they went to Marshall's to look for some things and Nana got some teas and some artichoke hearts for a salad.By the time Mom and Nana got back to Nana's house it was after 5:00pm and they both had some of Nana's new tea and a snack and then Mom cleaned up Dixie's cage,trimmed Nana's toenails on her bad foot,watered all her plants which were dry and cleaned out her heat box which was all dusty(the filter).Then she packed Dixie in the car and went home and got dad his dinner,and put all the groceries away and cleaned our cages,dad had already given us our snack and filled our humidifier bottle for us.Skin sis had wanted Mom to come and pick up her meds at the CVS in Falmouth but Mom just couldn't get there today there was just too much going on with Nana's VNA appointments that took up the whole day.We will get Mom home all day tomorrow and we hope that its going to be another nice day out there so we can go out and enjoy the sunshine!

  Heya, Willie!
Oh yeah, we have a spare charging cable too. Mom was not happy that her nice ear buds don't work on this phone--she would have liked to use them but this phone has some extra band on it, and so you have to use the manufacturers head phones. She needs to have smaller ones for her ears, and she can't find the extra tips for it. Sheesh.

Mom remembers from her nursing school days that Montessori kids are generally more well-behaved and more focused than other young kids. She always thought that if she had kids, she would make sure they would go to one of those schools. She never had to do that, as she never had kids...but she would have sent them there.

Mom had her interview today on the phone with the law office. It sounds like she would definitely be able to do the work, and the pay is in the range she had been earning. She told them she definitely would be willing to negotiate, as she knows that the pay she got as a contractor was higher than regular jobs. Anyway, she does hope to get called for the in person interview. And will take things from there. Still things to consider, she says. At least she has time, and the resources, to figure things out.

Wing hugs coming atcha! And yeah, Lizzie is entered into the hat contest. Miss Chyna picked out the hat--you know how Lizzie loves her sequins!

My mom doesn't like spicy foods.......well a little spice in Mexican is good!
Bet that was fun with the K kids being so involved and asking questions!
Oh no! Your moms phone went dead? Good that she picked up another cord so she will have a spare! My mom has a spare for everything! Years ago my mom lost her keys......and after that happened she gets two of everything!
That's great that your flowers are in bloom. Ours have bloomed and are done. Love it when the flowers start blooming in the spring!
Hope you are having a great day!

  HI Willie
I did get in some good mom time yeaterday.She never got to the salt stains in her car so maybe this weekend.
This time of year sure is nice when everything is blooming and growing again.Im very anxious about getting outside again because yesterday my mom had the patio door open for a bit to let some fresh air in and I sat in the door just looking out.
The was very nice of the guy at radio shack to offer your mom to leave her phone on the charger there to charge and mention she could return the new charger she bought if she wanted too.Have a good afternoon.

  Hello Willie~
I hope you are having a fun day!! The original microchip cost 35$ to inject into Merlin. Mom has no idea what the whole yearly thing is about except that they keep a profile of Merlin with his picture and age, etc. He has a little wedge cut out of his right ear. We don't know why since he came to us that way but it's considered a marking that will help them identify him if he gets lost. I thought they just scanned him and the vets office info showed up. Dad just thought is was a good idea so we renewed it.
Enjoy your day!!!

  Hmmm....Food Looks YUMMY!! I LOVE Boiled Eggs!
Hello Willie! That Mom of mine!! Mercy, she has been one busy woman but when she has stopped to pick me up & do some blogging here on the BC, it certainly hasn't been easy to get on this place! Made Mom think she was having a "senior moment" so she changed her sign in name AND her password thinking she must have forgotten them. Then when it was just the right time to get on, the internet was GONE!! Somebirdy must have stolen it!! We tried & tried to get on but it was deader than a two week old fish out of water. It must have been because Mom kept shouting that "this just STINKS! It really STINKS!!" Let me tell you, I sure was glad that I couldn't smell anything because seeing Mom's face like THAT was just plain scary! It must have been a "stink bomb"!

Mom's been busy making some "portraits" and we're asking if it would be alright if she made one of you, in your jockey silks, me & Peppino together? Sort of a guys photo shoot, or, I should say, SHOT because it takes forever to make them!! Mom is a slow-poke about everything, so a snail is faster than she is! I'd bet on a person who had to type with their toes than to bet on my Mom. She just puts the "poke" in slow-poke. It's just her nature.

Mom is going over to her son's this afternoon to have some one on one time with Ashlynn & to take her to dance class. Guess what she's going to show her in the car?? Yep! Ashlynn's shoes will be with her to show her that they will be waiting for her at Grandma's house! Mom is hoping that this makes that awesome expression she saw at the store that day, return with gusto! It would do that little girl so good.

Hope you're having a greyt day. Hugs to you all! SamIAm

I agree, mom isn't too worried at this point cause they are not huge spots. However mom is trying to be proactive in finding the reason and hopefully stopping the behavior. The spots do not appear to be getting any worse. Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.
