  Hi Willie
This morning was a cold and snowy morning with the temperatures highs of 36 and our lows will be 24. Dad helped Mom collect the trash and while she was cleaning our cages and getting us our breakfast dad loaded the trash in Mom's car.We all had to stay home as it was really so cold and snowing out.When Mom got to Nana's house they went to the dump,then to Walgreen's where Mom got some salt that she had a raincheck for,then they went to Roche Bros grocery store and they got orange juice for a dollar,Mom picked up some eggs for $.99 and they bought several other things that were on sale.Then they went back to Nana's house and shortly afterward skin bro came over and they all had lunch together,Nana made a nice salad and they stayed and visited til around 3:30 when both Mom and skin bro left for home before the temperatures dropped and the roads got icy.We were so glad to see Mom home early and now she's ours for the rest of the weekend.Mom came home and made up some sandwiches for my dad just in case he should get called out but so far it looks like the roads are drying out and he may just be home with us for the rest of the weekend!
Mom has been trying to load our football pics to our profile pages and our galleries and we are getting no pictures at all now!We have no idea of what's going on with that!It looks like we're being invisible right now!She has contacted i5 and the Support system but as of yet hasn't gotten a reply back,she has been trying for days to get our pics up and all we get is the blank square where the pic should be,she had wanted the pics up for the game tomorrow but it looks like that's not going to happen now!
Your sweet Momma sure was up to her elbows in laundry at the center and it sure sounds like there was lots more if three loads never made a dent in it!Mom's got to do her laundry this weekend as she never did it last weekend,didn't want to freeze in the cellar!Your awesome Mom does quite alot of things at the center and they still have filing there!
That Poop Off is really good stuff and Mom and Nana always buy the gallon jug of it whenever its on sale,Mom uses it on everything as its bird safe,that is a good by for the 32 oz bottle $4.00!Gull poop is awful.They always hang out in Hyannis or Falmouth parking lots!We don't get them around here at all!
How awesome that everyone got to take home a care package with all that greyt food that your wonderful Momma made!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for my sweet Willie!Loving you always and forever,Peepers

  Heya, Willie!
I see you got your picture up, and Peppino's but I don't see Falco's. Hopefully it will be able to be loaded. Sheesh!

I copped quite an attitude today when Mom dropped me off at the vet. She had an appt. for a different kind of facial, so I had to go there first, as she would never have made it home and back there in time. The tech said that she had to take me out of my carrier instead of me making a bolt for it and her getting me to step up. She did not want to do that as there was a doggie back there. She told Mom that when she got me, I laid on my back with my feet clenched, and raised my head up as if to say: Just try to trim my toenails. I would not eat, either, and threw the bread on the ground. Mom's facial thingy took lots longer than she originally thought it would, and got back to the vet's after my appt. time. Well, there was an emergency that put the good Dr. back about an hour, so she got to be in the exam. I was making all kinds of noises--but boy, I sure was happy to see her. My physical was perfect, and I weigh 133 grams, down from 139. All muscle, great shape. So Mom was happy. I was ticked off at her when we got home for about 45 minutes. Then it was velcro time.

Snowed out, too, but just enough to make things slick. Mom stayed in and did my house, and some laundry. And put up the little tree. That is so pretty! She just put on garland, all silver and sparkly. Looks superb. I love pretty lights and sparkles!

Freezing rain now, but tomorrow is supposed to be in the 40's. Go figure. No wonder Mom feels like she is getting a cold.

Cya at the game!

I know Chyna said she was having problems adding new pictures too so BC must be having problems again.
I'm glad you guys had a nice Thanksgiving we had a good one too.It was nice and relaxing and so far today he been the same.
My mom had thought about going out to do some shopping but really doesn't want to deal with the crowds.
I bet that laundry can really pile up at the center if you don't stay on top of it.Glad your mom was able to help out with some stuff. Have a good afternoon.

Happy Thanksgiving to your flock and wonderful Mom and family!
We woke up to a dark snowy morning with big huge snowflakes falling down from the sky!Mom was panicking as she kept watching to see if it would stick or not and thank goodness it didn't!Mom quickly packed all the things she was taking over to Nana's for Thanksgiving,the cornbread she made some alphabet macaroni for Nana's turkey soup,and then she got all our carriers out and we all got to go with them!We all got to stay in Bella's room with our cousins and the skin sibs came over and after Mom got us all settled in she went out to the kitchen and helped Nana get things ready to be cooked for the dinner.It didn't take long for Nana's house to smell sooo good with turkey and stuffing and all the pies that they put in the oven and corn bread,rolls,broccoli,butternut squash,mashed potatoes,cranberry sauce,gravy and was it so tantalizing!We all even got to have some pomegranates,oranges and apples to snack on while everyone ate the turkey!It was a nice quiet day we all had together!
I want to tell you all just how thankful I am to have you as my friend,you all mean the world to me and I just can't put into words how much you have changed my and my Mom's and Nana's world!We are all so grateful for the love and caring you give us each and everyday,the true warm friendship that you just can't find anywhere else!You are the real meaning of love and friendship and we are all so blessed and honored to be walking in the sunshine of your love!
Wishing you a greyt Thanksgiving and we are all wishing that your world is shining bright today and everyday with love as you have made ours!We love you all soo soo very much!

  Hey Willie,
Okay next set mom blows the whistle so every
Birdie knows time for the next set.

Laka says tails even before Pookie calls it! Haha she says and the coin is tossed and it falls tails in the sand so the girls serve.

Kacey serves and it goes over to Dixie and he bumps it up to Gus and he sets it up for Kiddo who spikes it over and Laka slides in the sand to hit the ball but Kiddos spike is too fast for her.

The boys yell yay !! And high four each other.

So now Pookie serves and it goes over to Candida and she hits it over to Cori who bumps it up to BooBoo who spikes it over to the dead spot and all the boys fly in the sand to get the ball but unable to. The girls all yell way to go BooBoo! And high four each other.

Little Angela turn and she serves the ball and it goes over Mikey and he bumps it up to Raffi who sets it up for Chipper who spikes it over to the girls dead spot and all the girls crumble to get the ball but end up in a dust storm.

The boys all cheer way to go Chipper! And high four each other.

Cookie serves and it goes over to Kacey who bumps it up Celine who sets it up for Cori who spikes it over and Pookie catches the ball. Pookie!! All the guys yell!! Pookie shrugs his shoulders and says sorry guys I was thinking of a pizza and just caught the ball. :(

Yay the girls all cheer, Cori, Cori!!! Then high four each other.

Pookie rolls the ball under the net for Chyna to serve. She serves it and it goes to Gus and he bumps it over to Pookie who sets it up for Gus who spikes it over to the girls dead zone. Yay the boys scream and high four each other.

The gear the whistle blowing and Pookies tummy growling and know its lunch time !!

Everyone heads to the tent for some yummy egg salad sandwiches and tuna with cucumber sandwiches and some fine chicken salad sandwiches along with sweet or sour pickles.

There's plenty of juice and bottled water so everyone help yourself!

Mom makes sure that every birdie has a sandwich and some juice or water to drink.

Everyone needs to stay hydrated now, I don't want any birdie fainting from heat stroke okay??

Oh sorry there's also some chips too, to go along with the sandwiches. She puts some on every birdies plate as she walks around.

One hour to the last half of the game, she shouts.

As in a few hours it will be dark.

Every birdie enjoys the lunch and talks about the game.

That's good to know the bats are tiny yes those raccoons sure do have some teeth on them.
That's great Daisy did good in class and is responding well to the clicker.Mom got a clicker awhile back I can make the sound perfect.
Sorry to hear about that storm out your way I hope it let's up soon.
Having ten people over is still quite a big chore to get ready for.
If I get don't get to squawk with you tomorrow I hope you guys and your mom have a very happy thanksgiving. Have a good night.

  Heya, Willie!
Oh, we have a very cute fake tree, which is why Mom puts it up early--we can't have a real tree in the apt. due to fire hazards. Though Mom has seen real trees being carried in...Mom says no thank you, not going to risk our nice place for a tree.

Mom is going by Grandpa's tomorrow, and I know I will get some of those great leftovers when she comes back home. Not much else happening here. Just nice to have Mom home with me!

Happy Turkey Day!!

  Hi Willie
moms not su re if a scab forms over my beak r not but i am using it. of course i am not pounding my peanuts that much right now because my beak is a little sensitive.

mom had to run to the store for a few things and after coming home and bringing her packages inside she noticed 2 house wrens that seem to be tangled up in something who were making quite a ruckus. mom left her packages on the front porch and got a step stool from inside to stand on so she could reach the braanch. they had somehow gotten their legs caught in a birdhouse mom had stuffed with our doggies hair clippings from this spring. mom tried to pull the hair out with one hand while holding the birds with her other hand but she coudlnt pull the hair out. she then gently pulled the birds legs out of the hair. she doesn't know if all the hair was off the legs or if their legs were damaged but , man, did they ever fly way fast. mom then pulled out all the tightly packed doggie hair clippings from the bird house and threw it away.something else for mom to feel guilty about.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

Mom also made those energy bars for us to eat, it's in the baking pan.

Full of peanuts, peanut butter and raisins and granola for energy.

Also there's 2 pans of pineapple cake so help yourself.

Everyone grabs a juice box or a cup full of juice and sit in the shade and hydrate.

The boys sit with the boys and the girls sit with the girls going over their strategy.

Raffi says I dunno about you guys but them girls is strong players!

Yeah I agree says Dixie, who knew Little Angel had it in her!

The girls team discuss the boys too. Chyna says I think we can still win this one and Kacey agrees. We just hafta show more aggression !! Argggg!!

Hahahaha then all the girls start laughing and that peaks all the boys interest, what are they laughing about says Pookie.

Everyone rests up before continuing the next half of the volleyball game, boys versus girls.

  Hey Willie,
Well it's a sunny hot day of 81 degrees here in Hawaii.

Both teams are getting ready and start stretching and warming up for their game play and eyeing up the other team.

Kacey puts her wings to her eyes and then points to the boys team as if to say I've got my eye on you! Hehehehe

Mom says the game will end at 5 no matter who wins okay?

When I blow the whistle it's time, either a juice break or lunch break but two short whistles means the game is over. Both teams agree, good.

Pookie calls heads before Laka gets to say anything.

The coin falls and it's tails! Yay!! The girls team serves first.

Chyna serves the ball and it goes over to Gus who's in the middle and bumps it over to Pookie who sets it up for Chipper and he spikes it over to the dead spot and all the girls scramble to get it but unable to. Yay the guys all high four Chipper, way to go buddy!!

Kiddo is up serving and it goes over to Cori who bumps it up to Little Angel who sets it up for Laka and she spikes it over and Raffi dives into the sand for a save and hits it up to Dixie who volleys it over to BooBoo who bumps it up to Kacey who hits it over and lands by Mikey who bumps it over to Pookie who tries to spike it over but it hits the net.

Yay!! The girls team scream. Now it's Sugars turn to serve and she hits it so effortlessly over to Mario who bumps it up to Willie who sets it up for Kiddo who spikes it over and Laka dives in the sand to get the ball but Kiddos fast spike ball was too fast for her and sand flew all over as she dived for it.

Now Chipper serves and it goes over to Kacey who bumps it up to BooBoo who spikes it over to Gus and he dives in the sand and barely able to save the ball. Kiddo runs and bumps the ball back into play and Peepers volleys it over to Cori who bumps it up to Chyna who sets it up for Sugar and she spikes it over and lands in the dead spot. While all the boys try to dive for the ball they all end up in a dust of sand clouds with sand flying all over.

Yay Sugar!! All the girls yell and high four each other, good one !! :)

Now Cori serves and it goes over to Raffi and he bumps it up to Mikey who sets it up for Dixie who spikes it over to Little Angel who hits it but it goes out of bounds. Awwww the girls sigh.

Yay Dixie!! The boys all high four each other, good going Dixie!!

Mikey serves and it goes over to Kacey and she bumps it up to BooBoo who sets it up for Little Angel who spikes it over to the dead spot and all the boys rush to get up but end up in a cloud of dust. Yay Little Angel!! They all high four each other and she says in your face boys!

They hear the whistle and its a juice break and about time says Pookie as he's been sweatin' bullets out there.

They all run to the tent for some cold refreshing juice. Mom says there's pineapple, guava, lilikoi, orange, grape, apple and grapefruit juice so help yourself.

Poop off is really greyt on dried up poop and for other things also around the house,it is expensive but Mom buys it in the gallon size when its on sale in Dr Foster and smith catalog!At least this time Mom's car wasn't covered in white like the last time she parked at the Mall,she went to open the door and her hand was all sloshed in gull poop they really plastered the car that time!
Daisy sounds like she is really doing so good in her doggie obedience class!Mom has a clicker for us too but she had already had us trained before she found the clicker,she just may try and train Candida by that method.Mom is getting really nervous by the way BC is so slow as it keeps cycling over and over again,she has already lost a blog when she hit the add comment button,didn't even have a chance to c/p it BC just took it away!I'm with you hoping that BC will be in good running order on Saturday for the Milonga!Nana called Mom early this morning and wants Mom to come over to her house early tomorrow morning so she can help her prepare the meal and get all the cooking ready!Mom will try and get to Nana's by 10:00am as Nana isn't feeling well,quite dizzy and tired!How awful that you are getting all that snow so soon!I so hope that all your family that is coming will have a safe trip!Its raining here and has been since last night sometime,its been dark as night time and the rain just keeps pouring down,can you believe that Mom had to put the light on in our room at two this afternoon?What a day for your sweet Momma to be out in the snow getting her new drivers license and getting her nails done,we are all so glad that she's home now and safe in the house with you!
If I don't get to be on BC tomorrow I want to wish you and your wonderful flock and family and sweet Momma the best Thanksgiving ever!Mom's sister may be coming over tomorrow also to Nana's with some of her kids!They are all grown and some have moved out of the house and are living on their own and in college.It will be a long day for sure!

  Good Afternoon Willie!
It seems things are settling down around here since Mom last talked with Nanny & Aunt Kaylene. Mom has stopped rushing around & she hasn’t been packing her suitcase anymore. Once again, the wonderful scents & aromas have been wafting through the house, making me hungry! Mom has made a pumpkin pie & she tried a new recipe for Pumpkin Butterscotch Cake. It made a big pound cake & I asked to “try” until I was blue in the face & still Mom ignored my pleas! Hmphf! I’m hurt by her stinginess!

Since Mom has calmed down, I have been receiving my veggie & fruit portions with some nice toppings on them again. She has this “thing” that I like & it smells really good but one disturbing “thing” about it, is that it looks like a ninja death star!! Now, it does have these seeds in it that smell wonderful & taste better than they smell! I have decided to take those & keep them for later sharpening & using them for those asian throwing stars. I will have to practice because I can throw a knife fairly well but these…their weight distribution is much different than a heavy knife. It will take some getting used to for sure! Mom has been telling me the name of this treat is “anise” & I will repeat to her, “NICE” & bob my head up & down to show her I understand & that I like it very much. She doesn’t know I’m storing the stars in my corner piñata where I stuff all my “secret stuff” inside there! These will be housed there for later!

Lately, I’ve been exercising & toughening up for the football game Saturday! I have been running, sit-ups, chin-ups, & weight pressing using CocoPuff. She gets a little bit sick from the up & down motion but she’s been a real sport about it. I also have been running the tire course & keep messing up with my left side of my left foot, those nails grow faster than all the rest & make me stumble. I will have to show Mom my predicament so she can file them down for me. It will be a greyt time getting to play with everybirdy Saturday. Hope you have a greyt Thanksgiving Day! Give a hug to Miss Falco & Peppino for me! Hugs, SamIAm

Oh my sweetie, sure veggies is the way to go. :)

Ulu is a Hawaiian breadfruit. It's like a starch mom used to have a tree where she lived and they cut it up and made ulu chips. It taste pretty good and healthy too. :)

Okay sweetie, see you at the KB!

  Good Evening, Willie! Thanks For Your Prayers!
Well, Mom has been running around to & fro cleaning, cooking, doing laundry (in case she were to have to leave), trying to catch her breath, & then starts it all over again!

She has been in touch with her Mom & sister every evening. Nanny is still very weak & frustrated with all of the stupid things that can happen at hospitals & with doctors, etc. The stress test that was suppose to happen Monday, well, when Nanny didn’t stay for the weekend, just laying there to start her tests on Monday, she thought about that after they stabilized her, & decided she could wait much easier at home than being woke up every 2 hrs. for a blood pressure check & temperature reading. The staff (or doctor? we don’t know) decided since she went home, they canceled ALL HER TESTS!! But they neglected to tell neither Nanny nor Aunt Kaylene that they had done so! Yep. This past Monday, they drove all the way to downtown Huntsville just to find out there were no orders & that she wasn’t on the list for Monday, or through the entire week for any tests at all! Aunt Kaylene had been trying to get Nanny into her main physician & when she told them the situation, they scheduled them an appointment this coming Monday. I’m getting the feeling that Alabama’s healthcare system really blows for geriatric care.

Nanny is doing alright, so far. Aunt Kaylene has a wheelchair & has been using it with Nanny. I bet both of them are very glad that Aunt Kaylene has had their home re-designed for easy wheel-chair access. Also, she had one of their bathrooms redesigned with a walk in bathtub. This has been really useful for Nanny, now, not just for Aunt Kaylene. For those of you who don’t know, Aunt Kaylene was in an accident that turned very complicated & the injury wouldn’t heal right & she lost her right leg to amputation. They had to do that to save her life. That is the main reason Mom goes over there a month to 6 wks. at a time because she has worked hard helping them in that ordeal. She has her own room there, too!

We so appreciate all your prayers for Mom’s family & also Mom. It has been a strange ordeal & hasn’t gone the way Mom thinks is any where near “normal” to say the least! Mom is hoping nothing is damaged with Nanny’s heart due to the delay this is turning out to be. Her heart history has been 2 angioplasty procedures done. The first one they implanted a stent inside one of her main arteries. Then 20 years later, she had another heart episode, & the stent needed replacing. That was about 4 or 5 yrs. ago. So, there is cause for concern when she starts having pain in her chest. She didn’t think the cardiologist recognized that he had operated on her before. Probably not since she didn’t need to see him all that often. Once she had those procedures done, she was off & running. All the family is concerned about her & are giving their time to be with her.

We are so thankful for all our friends. You are all the best that there is! Sam

This morning was a fairly sunny day with temperatures in the 50's and it was warm considering how cold it was a few days ago.Mom got ready early and left to go to Nana's after she cleaned our cages and fed us our breakfast.Both Dixie and Mario had to stay home today as Mom was going down this end of town to complete her and Nana's Thanksgiving meal.Mom picked up Nana and they came back down to Hyannis and went to Trader Joe's and got some things,then they went to Joann's Fabric but didn't find anything there,then they went to Shaw's and both Nana and Mom got some things marked down and Mom paid her NStar bill there and then Mom went to the Post Office and then after that they headed back to Mashpee and went to Stop&Shop and got some things there and then to the nature food store,but Mom couldn't find any white millet for Mario there,then to Walgreen's,then back to Nana's where Nana made them some lunch of a salad with cranberries and zucchini on the side and toast.Then Mom came home around 4:30pm and as she was unpacking her car my dad came home and helped her finish unpacking while Mom came in and put the light on for us and fed and cleaned us out for the night.Then she made dad some dinner and now she is done with the dishes we are finally going to have Mom take our dictation so we can get our visits in!Mom had parked her car at Trader Joe's and when she came out her car was covered in seagull poop from top to bottom and now my dad has to clean that all off for her!
Our highs for the day were 59 and our lows will be 44.
They are talking some kind of storm for us here tomorrow,we are supposed to get one to two inches of rain and the temperatures are supposed to drop and if that happens the roads will freeze and my dad will have to go to work and we'll get no Thanksgiving!Some forecasts are calling for snow here and we have no idea who to believe!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Loving you always and forever,my sweet Willie!Love Peepers

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

  Heya, Willie!
We love the bats showing their teeth comment--guess they like to show off for your Mom,huh? And it is obvious that she loves to work with them. That is so cool.

Well, have to say that we are not sure if the BC is going to let us blog you or not. Super duper ultra slow. We sure did not like that Mom had to go to work today. She said the roads were meh, but around her job things were much nicer. She did go for a walk on the upper trail that overlooks the lake--it was cold, but the sun felt good. Not a lot of folks out there today. Lake was blue in the sun. No boats out there, though!

Some snow showers tomorrow. Mom is so looking foward to her two days off. I get my physical on Friday, and toenails and wings trimmed. Mom is putting up our little tree, too, and I sure am happy about that. I love my tree! She may or may not decorate it. She will put garland on it--last year she put on so much garland, it did not need any ornaments. I love the bright lights.

Stay warm!

  Hi Willie
Mom hasn't made these desserts before but they sound fairly easy. The candy bar pie doesn't seem to thanksgiving like but she thought her nieces and nephews would like it and of course her too.There will be a mincemeat pie and pumpkin pie but my mom wanted to make something different.
The cornbread stuffing sounds delicious my mom can never get enough of that stuff.
I think those bats showing their teeth would be enough to scare my mom off.
Hope the classes are going well for Daisy and she is learning some manners.
Mom went to the grocery store earlier and she said it was a mad house she's glad to be done with that and really happy she doesn't have to go tomorrow because it's probably going to be much worse. Have a good night.

  Hi Willie
yesterday was quite a day for me. it was mom and dads 37anniversary and they were actually going to leave the house and go out for dinner. dad asked mom to trim my beak because he said the top was way to long and i couldn't eat properly with it. when mom took a look she saw that i had somehow broken the bottom half of my beak off and my top beak was about 3/4 of an inch longer. she wrapped me in a tea towel and got a good grip of my head and held my beak together and started filing away with the emery board. she moved fast because she doesn't want to hold me in that position for very long. at one point she noticed blood on her hand and thought maybe i had bitten her so she stopped to checked and make sure i was ok . here my top beak had started to bleed where she filed it down. you have to realize mom always is working on my beak and nails and so was very surprised to see what had happened in the first place and in order for my beak to fit properly she had to file it down to the right length which made it bleed. when mom saw the blood she became ill and thought she was going to vomit. she grabbed some flour and dipped my beak in it. then she uses a cloth and wiped the blood off, then she dipped my beak in flour again. at this point i suspected mom was putting batter on me to eat me for dinner. mom was so upset she told dad no way was she going out for dinner when my beak had been bleeding. what if it started bleeding again while they were gone. dad said ok and went out and brought dinner hone from a nice local italian restaurant. that night mom let me chase a live cricket around and i did and caught it and ate it all up. i was fairly quiet but that was because i was very mad at mom. today i m still mad at mom but acting a little better and eating with my beak. mom says with my beak so short i really look like a baby bird now

love Boo Boo

  Heya, Willie!
Not a problem--nobody could get on the BC last night to blog! So your Mom was fine spending time with you, no guilt, that is for sure! And wow, after the day she had, I don't blame her in the least.

Yes, those radiators are free standing, and they don't leak. The one we have here is probably about 20 years old, and it works superbly. Your Mom should check out Ace Hardware, as they have them, as does Target. They are the best for birds, and they don't use as much electricity as they keep the heat constant. And there are three settings--600 Watt, 900 Watt and 1500 Watt depending on how cold it is. They run about $40 or so. Well worth the investment!

We are officially in winter. I hate to say it, but our lovely (though dark and grey and rainy) temperatures are gone for good until spring. IT SNOWED today. Mom was less than thrilled. She took the city streets home tonight as she did not want to deal with the idiots on the expressway. It was not too bad, but as she got closer to home, you could see how the snow was much heavier. She dragged out the boots she bought--they are Skechers, and they are waterproof, insulated and make her feet look like gunboats. But they are comfy for walking as far as she has to from her parking structure. And she can't understand why these idiots don't clean off their cars/trucks if they are out in the snow. They turn on the windshield wipers and have that much visibility. Meanwhile, the snow on the roof of their car blows off and really makes the guy behind them suffer. UGH! Hate snow. We are up for 3-5 inches, so you know how not excited we are.

Glad to be back on the BC. Not sure how long it lasts, but at least I can vote for Miss Ruby and say hi to all of ya!

  Hi Willie
Im finally able to get back on the BC after being off all day yesterday so now I am trying to play catch up.
Sounds like a big event your mom was at hope they were able to raise lots of cash.
Thats wonderful the furnace is up and running again with no problems.
Started off with rain this morning then turned to sleet now its just snowing like crazy with some strong winds..Think we might get up to 6 inches of snow.
My mom is hoping to get all her stuff from the store tomorrow for the stuff she is going to bake for thanksgiving.Shes going to make sweet potato pecan bars and then a candy bar pie.
Hope your week is off to a good start.See you later

  Hi Willie
I am apologizing for not coming by to see you yesterday!Mom was sitting down and getting our blogs done when all of a sudden we kept getting the Squawkatiel and then the 404 page not found and the runntime error and we couldn't get on BC so Mom thought that if she logged out and then logged back in again she could get us back on but that only made it worse,we couldn't get on period and this happened from late morning to the rest of the day and night,so here we are trying to catch up where we rudely got dumped.Mom will be on the run again tomorrow instead of Wednesday to finish up her Thanksgiving shopping with Nana as she will be going out for the rest of the week,so this is Mom's only day off except for Wednesday maybe!
Your sweet Momma sure had a long day the other day with Dan Quail and Quincy!That event really sounds like it was fun for all those who attended it and how incredible that the local dealership donated a van all outfitted for the center to transport the critters to the events like that!Your sweet Momma is just as busy as my Mom and Nana are these days with all the work she puts in with the Wildlife Center and the Museum too!
How awful about the Hubbard squash getting frozen on the back deck like that,but I bet the deer and the squirrels had a fine pre Thanksgiving dinner with that and the pumpkins!
Its so good to hear that you're once again warm and toasty and the guy finally replaced those pressure switches on it!And it was so nice to be able to get some cuddling in with your sweet Momma while she crocheted some things for Christmas!
Its a dark,dismal,dreary pouring rainy day here but the temperatures are warm at 59 and supposedly going up to 61.Its not cold but having no sun and warm weather just doesn't cut it for us!Where is the bright sunshine?
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Loving you always and forever,my sweet Willie!Love Peepers

  Hey Willie,
Well thus morning is just starting as every birdie wakes up well rested and ready for the next game.

Mom has some orange juice and pineapple juice and other juices ready for every birdie this morning along with blueberry pancakes and pineapple waffles too.

The breakfast buffet was great and will give every birdie energy for todays game.

The coin toss is in favor of the girls so BooBoo serves the ball and it goes over to Gus and he bumps it to Pookie who sets it up fir Dixie who spikes it over to Chyna.

Chyna bumps it up to Kacey who volleys it over to Kiddo who hits it over and Laka catches it.

Forgetting about the no catch rule she smikes i forgot! Sorry!

The boys all looked shock and Laka says it was a mistake okay?

So now Raffi serves the ball and it gies over to Little Angel who bumps it up to Cori who hits it over the net to Chipper and he bumps it up to Kiddo and he tries to spike the ball over but it catches the net and the boys ho awww!!!

So now its Laka's turn to serve and she hits it over to Willie and he volleys it over to BooBoo and she bumps it up to Celine who hits it over to Mikey and he bumps it up to Dixie and he sets it up for Mario who spikes it over in the dead spot and the girls are unable to get it.

Cookie serves and the ball gies over to Kacey who bumps it up to Chyna who sets it up for Cori who spikes it over to Pookie who hits the ball but goes out of bounds.

They hear the whistle and mom says juice break!!

As it was getting hot in the 86 degree weather she doesn't want any birdie passing out of a heat stroke.

Time to hydrate she says and everyone heads to the tent for some cool refreshing drinks.

  Hi Willie
once again i am sorry i haven't blogged you for a few days. i wanted to but mom couldn't. mom thought her back was going to be ok. she took it easy for a few days so it could heal and it seemed to be getting better. well guess what.? it didn't work. the pain escalated to the point where mom can barely move with out back spasms. she has been sleeping sitting up in bed because if she lays down she cant get up. her sneezing from allergies keeps that back pain in the highest mode. she can't drive her car because it sets off muscle spasms in her back. right now mom is wearing one of those awful spandex sports bras to try and hold those muscles in place. mom thinks her back problems stem from the fact that she was born with an extra set of ribs. yes thats right. mom is a freak. mom thinks those extra ribs must press on nerve which sets these spasms off. anyway don't worry. mom will be ok eventually.

love Boo Boo

  Heya, Willie!
Your Mom should check out those radiator heaters--they are filled with oil, and they keep the heat at a more steady temperature, and don't pose a fire hazard. Mom has one for me, and she uses it when it is cold out, and at night. I love it cuz I am nice and toasty. She loves it cuz she doesn't want me to get sick. We have had it for maybe 20 years now. We have heat but not as much at night, so she wants me to be safe. She says she can put on covers, and I really can't do that. I do have two fleecy things that I gather around me if I get cold.

Hope that furnace is fixed now. UGH. What a pain to have to wait for them to figure out what has to be done.

  Hi Willie! Our Home Just Came To A Screeching...
....halt! Mom has been like a little tornado going through the house cleaning & scrubbing & doing those Mom things like she does. She's been happy, though, because she's been humming & singing as she works. Then tonight, after it was lights out for me, they got a very late night call. Those are never good news. At least that has been Mom's experience.

Anyway, Mom got a telephone call tonight from her sister. She had to take Nanny to the ER today. All day yesterday, into the night, & this morning Nanny was having all the symptoms of a heart attack but she refused to go to the ER. It was quite an ordeal for Mom's sister to try to coax her into leaving right away but Nanny can be very hard headed. And she was doing a very good job of that during a terrible time. She is in the hospital now since Mom's sister finally was able to get her to go. It was noon today! It took them 6 hrs. at the ER to get her checked in then checked out by a physician. Now she's stuck there until a cardiologist can see her Monday. Meanwhile, they are doing a bunch of tests on her while she's in there.

Mom's not sure if she will be needed or not but told them she can come if they do need her to come. Mom's oldest brother was on his way there for a visit when they went to the ER at lunch time. He's there now so Mom knows he can help with driving, etc.

Don't know what Mom will do for Thanksgiving. She invited her son & family for Thanksgiving but they haven't responded at all to the invitation. That has always meant "no". It would be nice if they would at least tell her to her face, "no", instead of pretending it was never asked. Mom & her mate might not even be here anyway. She will have to have her neighbor friend come down to feed me. Mom hates leaving me but in this case, it can't be helped.

You know, it would mean the world to Mom if I could get the BC Prayer Chain fired up to pray for Nanny & Mom's sister. Their names are Lorene Hughes & Kaylene Hughes. I know that would help Mom feel a little better. Her sister isn't in the best of health, either, & she has been dealing with a very hard headed woman the last 2 days. Give your good Momma an extra tight hug tonight, Willie. It's so surreal how one moment you have your loved ones near & in a second, they can be on the threshold of passing over to the Rainbow Bridge. Well, I'm not sure humans have a Rainbow Bridge but you understand what I mean, right?

Thanks, Willie. Big hugs to all, SamIAm
