I took Norman to the vet to get his trims. I mentioned to the vet about how Petfinder finally had a local bird rescue in Rio Rancho. Her eyes lit up and asked if I was considering adopting a bird. I said yes but was concerned how Norman would respond having been top/only birdie for so long. She asked me to wait for a minute and brought in Jude who was abandoned at the office when his owner moved out of town. According to the vet,his cage looked like it had never been cleaned. He was never let out of his cage and he had wing injuries that were never taken care of. Jude had spent close to a month at the vets office before I adopted him. Now he has a new forever home with Norman and me..

My new mom keeps singing that Beatle's song.

She gave me a forever home. I have a clean cage with plenty of toys and I am free to venture out of my cage when mom is there to supervise me.

I like to imitate Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles' head sways..

Hey Jude, take a sad song and make it better. Remember to let her into your heart, then you can start to make it better. Na na na na na na na na na na na Hey Jude..

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It just took mom 45 minutes to do one note so you know how things are going around here!hahahahahahaha McKenzie is running around and I'm hollering to get out of the play cage! Afraid that is not going to happen as long as the dog is running around. Pretty soon Ian will puppy-sit and I can have playtime with mom!
Really rainy here today but not cold so I can not complain. There are going to be tons of places that are below zero today! Hope that Polar whatever goes away quickly! Spring is really, really close and I think we are all ready for it!
Enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. We are finishing up laundry and getting mom ready to go back to work tonight.
McKenzie is feeling happy today. I can tell because she keeps getting into trouble!hehehehehehe
Mom went to Costco yesterday. The problem with that is trying to find places to put the stuff. We have a case of applesauce sitting on the computer desk and cereal on the breakfast bar. The paper towels are on the dryer and there is a case of Starbucks White Chocolate Frap on the file cabinet. Those are for Jennifer. The freezer and pantry are full also. I know it sounds like a lot but mom only goes there every 2 or 3 months. Depends on how long that case of toilet paper lasts! There is a really big bag of broccoli in the fridge. Mom just won't give up! She knows I'm not going to eat it but since she is going to make me some chop I have a feeling she will sneak it in there. I'll just eat around it!hahahahaha
It's almost like Spring here today! I fell so bad for all those out east who are having to put up with snow. Wish you could all be here with me!
Enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big ole hug too!

I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday! We are preparing for the Puppy Bowl. Mom, McKenzie and I checked out the line up and have picked a few favorites. I think I'm going the cheer for the Ruff team! The Fluff team is cute too! Hard to pick sides when there are that many cute puppies! I think it is just awesome that they find forever homes for all these dogs!!
Not much else going on for today. Mom has been filing all the papers we went through this week and put all of dad's mail into a box so he can go through it when he gets home.
Jennifer came home a little while ago so she'll be here for the Puppy Bowl party too!
Enjoy your day and I hope you get to have a party too ~ Puppy Bowl or Super Bowl or just because it's Sunday!

I hope the day was great! I took a shower today and it felt good. I had been feeding McKenzie some of my treats and then decided that we both needed to get cleaned up! She started barking at me when I dumped the water on her so I know she really enjoyed it! She got toweled off and I just air dried!
Mom took Jennifer down to visit her dad this morning so I got some quiet time! I got another piece of my hatchday cake after lunch. It was lovely.
The rest of the day was spent chasing puppy and trying to get chores done. We are now going to relax and get my notes done and perhaps watch a movie. It is very rare for mom to have a Saturday night off so we are going to make the most of it!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you had a wonderful day! It was busy around here but that was just because of puppy duty. McKenzie got into a lot of trouble today. She just couldn't seem to sit still. Mom was chasing after her most of the day! She still is! McKenzie just doesn't want to leave Merlin alone. Mom doesn't want to keep Merlin locked up all day and McKenzie really needs to learn to leave him alone.
I decided she was looking pretty hungry so I started throwing seeds, nuts and pellets down for her! Mom didn't think it was a very good idea. She swept it up and by the time she dumped it, I had thrown more down. Mom swept it up again and then dumped the rest. I got some veggie instead. That was my plan all along!hahahahaha
Obviously, we didn't get much else done. Mom was working on cleaning the oven. Since we don't use any chemicals around here it takes a bit longer to do. She should be able to finish it up tomorrow.
I hope you enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Jude~
I hope your day was fabulous! I had a pretty good one. I helped mom go through more papers today! Mom found tax returns from before she was married!!! She has been married for nearly 34 years!hahahahahaha Ian said it was pretty impressive. Mom said it was really bad of her to hang on to stuff that old! It's all shredded and gone now. We do know that McKenzie will bark at the paper shredder! Mom brought her over to it so she knows it's not a scary thing.
Mom made a trip over to the Goodwill and deposited a bunch of stuff! She is very pleased that we got rid of so much stuff! There were things mom didn't even know we had and hopefully someone else will be happy to have them!
Ian took mom to Chipotles for lunch. She loves having salads there. The manager gave them drinks and chips for free since they come in there so often. That was so nice of him!! They have had a lot of bad press lately but mom have never had a bad experience there.
Mom checked her schedule for next week and she is not scheduled until Tuesday night! That means extra days of vacation for her! YAY!! Don't know if that will be the case but it's nice if it is!
I hope you enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It was busy around here. We are still going on with the spring cleaning and the back of the car is now filled with stuff for the Goodwill. Mom will have to drop that stuff off tomorrow so she can put more in there. McKenzie is in the back seat so anything we put there would be chewed up by the time mom got to Goodwill!
The kitchen and the dining room are done and now mom is working on her room. It's slow going since she can only do it when the puppy is taking a nap or at night when she is in her crate. McKenzie is a very curious girl and wants to see everything!
Dad is in Utah and says the weather is nasty. He he one of 28 trucks who are hauling the equipment for a show called Marvel Universe Live. It's got Spiderman and my favorite, Captain America. It's coming to Seattle after Utah but I don't think dad will be hauling the stuff again.

I hope you are having a fun day! McKenzie is napping at the moment so I have a chance to get a note out! Who knew that our entire lives would be taken over by one little puppy?? I feel just awful when I can't get by to say hello but there are times when it's non stop around here. I think the puppy is trying to set a new worlds record for destruction of furniture! It is not going over well with mom!hehehehe
Mom is helping with the toy clearance at work. It's that time of year again! Actually they are about 2 weeks early with it this year. Soon all the pool toys will be out and people will be walking by dreaming of warmer weather and lots of sunshine.hehehehehe HECK! Easter will be here before you know it! Well, it will be in the stores before you know it. We have always enjoyed winter but this year we can't wait for Spring and some sunshine and long walks around the lake. It makes for a sleepy puppy and more time for me on BC!
I sure hope you have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you had a great day! Mine was okay. I spent a lot of time ripping up the newspaper at the bottom of my play cage. It just needed that extra touch that only I can give it! McKenzie thought it was a great idea and came over to help! Mom put her on her leash to keep her away from me. I kept trying to get her to come over. I really wanted to give her a little nip! It was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon even though mom didn't seem to have as much fun as I did.
It's our weekend now but I don't know what we are going to do. There is a lot of chores to get done but that is all boring stuff. I want to have some fun so I hope there is a movie and some popcorn!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been okay here so far but it's just starting!hahahahahaha
Gloomy day but I can't complain since so many places are having very cold temps.
Mom is getting some laundry done and we just had snack time. I had my apple and a couple of almonds, Merlin had some of the Greenie treats and McKenzie had a Blue Dog bakery cookie. Mom says it's like a daycare around here!!
McKenzie was in a very chewy mood this morning and tried to chew on the legs of the coffee table. Mom redirected her to a toy but that didn't last long. She then tried to chew the lever on the bottom of the computer desk chair! She is tenacious! Right now she is trying to kill her stuffed reindeer toy.

I hope you are having a wonderful day! We are doing laundry and mom has been cleaning out the kitchen. She is giving her Kitchen Aid mixer to a friend at work. Mom has had it for 8 years and used it once! It sure did free up a lot of space in the pantry!
We have to clean out George and Gracie's tank and mom wants to clean the rug in the hallway. McKenzie barks at the vacuum and the cleaner still so Ian will take her out on the balcony while mom does that. She seems to like it out there. She sits in on of the chairs and watches the world go by!

Sure hope you had a fun day! Mine was pretty good. Hung out with mom and did some chores today! She took the puppy for a bunch of walks also!
Tonight I got to watch Ant Man with Ian and Jennifer. Ian bought it when it came out but hadn't watched it yet. They all went to see it on opening night so there was no rush to watch the Blu ray. I like it but I think the other Marvel movies are much more exciting!
Tomorrow will be more cleaning and laundry since mom goes back to work tomorrow night. She is taking the first week of February off and I can't wait! A whole week to do whatever we want! YES!!!
Enjoy your evening! Sleep tight and sweet dreams!

I hope you are having a fantastic day! Mine has been pretty good. I have been on puppy duty most of the day. It sure is a hard job. Everything is taking so much longer since mom has to stop every few seconds to chase after the puppy! It takes a long time just to get a note done these days!
It's been a clear and pretty day but it was cold. We just hung out at home today and did some cleaning. There is a lot more to do since McKenzie is a bird puppy! She loves chewing paper and cardboard! Yep! Part bird!
It's our weekend but I have no idea what is planned. I hope we get to take some time and watch a movie. There's lots of new things at the Redbox.

I hope you having a wonderful day! We are still in the midst of cleaning out the storage room. Dad has all sorts of junk in there and I do mean junk! Who needs 4 boxes of old wires and plugs???? Not mom!hehehehehehe She found plugs for things that have been gone for years!
Mom has to stop by the market later to get some bread. Only bread left in the house was the rye that Ian got for his lunches. It does not make good peanut butter toast so I had my apple first this morning.
McKenzie was sleeping in the dining room when a truck came by and put on his jake break! It makes a terrible noise and made her jump up and start barking! They are not suppose to use them in the city but they do all the time. Guess they never get caught so they keep doing it. I know she will get use to all the noises around here someday. I did and Merlin doesn't care anyway since he is a cat and thinks he is above it all!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you had a fun day!! Mine wasn't bad. Mom took a bunch of stuff over to the Goodwill and then took McKenzie to Petco. Ian gave us a gift card for Christmas so she got to go spend it! Merlin got a lovely new food bowl since McKenzie broke his last one. McKenzie picked out some new toys. Mom tried to get her a boo boo dog which is a long stuffed dog, but she didn't want that. She picked out a reindeer that squeaks and a bear that has a rope body. They were clearance from Christmas. It's what she wanted and she has been carrying the reindeer around since she got home! She got some cookies from the cookie bar and more Science Diet puppy food. I got nothing!!!! Mom has another card to use for me but I don't really need anything right now. There was a beautiful Golden Cap Conure there. He was $650 and mom couldn't afford that! I don't think we need anymore animals around here! Mom said he was a really gorgeous bird.
McKenzie has to go to the vet on Friday. She has to get the 2nd booster shots. They only give them a tiny bit at a time. Since we don't know if she ever had shots before she came to live with us, they have to give the shot over 3 months. I wonder what she is going to think of our vet! I hope she gets to see Dr. Jennifer, my vet, cause she is awesome!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a spectacular day! I have not gotten many notes done in the past few days. I'm sure every bird knows what has been taking up the typist time~or should I say who!!! It's like having a second job. She seems to like to get into everything! We are slowly getting her use to the schedule and she is doing great sleeping in the crate at night. Mom moved it out to the living room for the nights she is not home. She discovered the living room window and school buses yesterday. That kept her occupied for half an hour. We are working on "mom and Merlin are not chew toys" right now!
Mom has met more neighbors in the past 2 weeks than the entire 6 years we have lived here. Everyone seems to have a dog here. Not like when Mandy was out walking. McKenzie is learning to socialize with other dogs but gets so distracted that she forgets why she is out there.
We had snow on Sunday but it only lasted for the day. Just fine by me. It was slushy the next day but the roads were taken care of so the driving wasn't bad. Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night so if it wants to snow again, it can! Don't think it will though. Never snows when you want it too!
I hope you have a wonderful day! I hope you guys are staying warm!

I hope you are having a lovely day! It's snowing here! Mom was suppose to drive Jennifer down to her sisters house for their Christmas celebration but the younger sister picked Jennifer up. She, mom and McKenzie went over to Safeway to get a pie and dinner rolls for their dinner and there were so many people in the store! Could just be that the Seahawks are playing today so everyone had to get snacks for the game!
Mom is getting some laundry done and waiting for Ian to call when he gets off from work. Mom will get some sleep after that. Kind of a boring day but that is just fine by me!

I hope you are having a fabulous 1st day of the year! Clear as a bell here but was only 20 degrees this morning!
We has a quiet evening. There were some fireworks that started around 8 pm. Mom was out walking McKenzie and there was a big boom but mom told her it was okay and just kept walking! McKenzie did not freak out! She did, however, bark loudly at a grocery store shopping cart someone left on the walkway! Mom took her over to it and let her sniff it! I guess everything is scary if you have never seen it before!
We went to bed rather early and mom put the radio on for us so we could listen to classical not booms. I know! We are a boring lot but it was nice that mom did not have to work and we could spend the evening together!
Dad was back in New Mexico on his way to Texas. He is sending mom a picture of the truck stop where he found McKenzie. It will be interesting to see where she came from.
I hope the day is perfect and I hope 2016 it the most wonderful year any of us have ever had!!

Someone besides me seems to like ripping newspaper so there is a lot of that to pick up! Mom has already done it a few times.

I hope your day was wonderful! Haven't been getting too many notes done lately! It's all the puppy's fault! She is one wild girl! Mom and dad are starting to think she will never get why they take her out so much! She is still a baby and it looks like it's going to take more time to get her to understand potty training. She is determined to make Merlin her best friend! Mom keeps telling her that cats do not play well with others!hehehehehe
Mom is off tonight and goes back on Tuesday night. That is just Monday off since she starts at 11 pm so she will have to pick another day off. It gets confusing since she starts at 11 instead of midnight. It's extra time off for her so she is just fine with it! They are having a huge storage event at the store mom works at so things have not gotten much quieter for her. It will slow down soon!
I'm not sure I mentioned this, but the reason dad went out shopping on Christmas Eve was because he got mom Seahawks License plates for Christmas! He had to wait until she was done with the car because they have to have the temporary paper on the back until the plates show up! It would have ruined the surprise if mom had seen the temporary! I think dad did good!

I hope you are having a great day! We read all about the storms. It's been stormy here for days. I know winter just started but a bit of sunshine would be nice!!
Did you all enjoy Christmas? It was quiet around here since mom and Ian both had to work. Mom made the dinner the night before and everyone ate leftovers yesterday. I think there is still some of the roast left. Mom doesn't eat meat so she and I had some vegan stuffing and turnips! It was very good. Not sure I like turnips but the stuffing was yummy! Corn Bread is always a good idea!
We have been so very busy with the puppy. She really wants to play with the cat but the cat keeps looking at her like she is crazy!! They make it crazy around here!!!

Merry Christmas!! Can't believe it's already here!! I hope tomorrow is just wonderful for you!

Dad has gone off Christmas shopping. Yes! I know! It's Christmas Eve. Dad never goes shopping before Christmas Eve. He says it's his Christmas tradition. I think dad just like to put things off until the last minute!

I am starting to think that McKenzie is a bird dog!! She tried to chew the coffee table and loves to chew boxes! I swear I did not teach her any of this! It's all coming naturally so that is why I think she might be part bird! Cool!hehehehehe

Mom rented Mission Impossible and Pan from the Redbox so we will be watching those later. Mom and I are going to watch Pan since she has no interest in seeing Mission Impossible. Popcorn and a movie while we get laundry done! Great way to spend Christmas Eve!

I hope your day is perfect and that you have a great Christmas!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! I'm sorry I didn't get around much yesterday. It was just a busy day with puppy duty. It is slowly getting calmer around here but I have to tell you that Merlin is just such a drama king! I think he is a bit jealous of the puppy! I just sit in my play cage and watch the two of them! As long as McKenzie does not come near my cage, we will get along just fine. I still have a cardboard wall around the bottom of my cage to keep me from biting her. We are never alone, not even for a second. If mom has to go to another room she takes McKenzie with her.
Only 2 more work nights for mom and then it's 2 days off! She wishes she could say the Christmas rush will be over then but they are having a huge sale on the 26th and then all the storage stuff happens. Once the Christmas stuff is gone, they put storage boxes and baskets up in Seasonal. The Christmas stuff will go quickly since they are marking it 75% off the day after Christmas.
I posted some pictures of McKenzie, Merlin and I in my gallery. I hope you enjoy them!
Enjoy your day too!

I hope you are enjoying the day! I am toasty warm in my play cage having a snack and chatting with mom!
McKenzie did well in the crate last night. It's all wire so she can see out. Mom got her bed in there and gave her the parrot toy. She covered the back with a blanket so that the nightlight wouldn't shine on her. She fussed for a bit but then went to sleep.
Wish potty training was going as well but it hasn't even been one day yet. We did have to get the carpet cleaner out last night.
McKenzie pulled Merlin's bowl off the table and broke it. Mom will replace it with something in stainless steel. She sure did figure out what the kitchen was for pretty quickly! I'd say she is a smart dog.
Merlin does not like her very much! He already tried to whack her but mom stopped him. Mom assures me that they will get use to each other eventually.
I think she is very cute but if she comes near the cage, I will bite her. I do have to defend my cage you know! There is a big piece of cardboard wrapped around the bottom of my cage so that I can not get to her if she comes to visit!
Still cold here and is suppose to rain until Christmas!! Christmas is only 6 days away now! Seems like the time just flew by.
Have an awesome day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you had a great day!
She's here!! McKenzie is home! Oh my goodness! She has been non-stop motion since she got home. She barked at me and tried to stick her nose in my play cage and then started barking at Merlin. Merlin ran off to hide in the bedroom. I climbed down to give her a bite! Mom is going to wrap cardboard around the bottom of my play cage so that there are not accidents.
Mom has not sat down since McKenzie got here! Should have seen mom try to eat lunch!hahahaha McKenzie would trot over to my cage and mom would go get her. McKenzie would sit on her bed for a little while and then trot back over! I think she is in awe of me!!
Mom and Dad had to go down to Petsmart to pick up a crate. If they don't lock her up tonight no one is going to get any sleep!
She grabbed the turtle food and took off with that and then grabbed the box of turtle filters. She found Merlin's rope and was trying to chew that up! I think I will be saying
"McKenzie No" very soon!hahahahaha This should all be very interesting!
Star Wars was good and they enjoyed it. Next one won't be out for a year and a half. Ian and Jennifer already want to go see it again.
I hope your day was awesome!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!
I am sorry for not getting around much the last few days. I am not sure who I have told and who I have missed, but the puppy is coming home with dad. She is about 6 months old and the vet said she had been out longer than just 3 days. Probably dumped by a truck driver since she was at a truck stop. Dad can attest to the fact that having a puppy in a truck is not a good idea!
She has mange and anemia. The mange is not the contagious kind so Merlin and I will be fine. She is taking meds for it and it will be gone in about 3 weeks. We are preparing for her to come home tomorrow. We named her McKenzie. Have not had a puppy for a long time so we are trying to puppy proof the place. Not easy since we don't really know what she is going to try to get into. Mom made a wall out of a cardboard box and put it around the computer so she can't get to any of those cords. She will be supervised all the time so there will not be any disasters.
She and dad are in central Oregon right now and dad told mom McKenzie is just fascinated with all the trees. If she likes trees then she came to the right place to live!
Star Wars premier tonight! I'll be in solitary until they get back! Mom added another toy and she'll be sure that I have plenty of snacks.
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's spectacular!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a great day! Sun is out today! Almost forgot what that looked like!
Dad is in Gallup where it was 29 degrees this morning. When dad went into the truck stop to get some coffee he found a dog shivering by the door! The people at the truck stop said it had been there for 3 days! People were feeding her Subway sandwiches! Dad picked her up and put her in the truck where is was nice and warm. He gave her some lunch meat because that is all he had that was suitable for a dog. She drank 3 bowls of water and then curled up on the passenger seat and went to sleep! Dad located a vet because she has a cut on her jaw and dad said it looked infected. She is at the vet now. They told dad to call back around 2:30 central time since both the vets were in surgery. They are going to scan her for a microchip also but dad doesn't think she'll have one. Don't know if she was dumped or got lost but she'll be okay now. Dad was going to look for a shelter, which turns out to be right next door to the vet, but mom told him not to be crazy! Just bring her home! Animals that were meant to be part of our family always seem to find us! We are just praying she is healthy! Her picture is in my gallery.
Oh! Dad found a horse on the side of the road too but he called the police to handle that! Guess it wouldn't fit in the truck!hahahahahaha Ian said that people in Gallup don't seem to be able to take care of their animals! The horse just got outside the fence somehow but dad was afraid it would get hit by a car. They got the owner and the horse is safely home now!
Enjoy your day!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a lovely Sunday! Mom got home late and then had to go pick Jennifer up from her dads house. They stopped at the market down there since it's on the way back to the freeway. I noticed some apples and some gingersnaps! I saw dried lentils and split peas so I guess I'm going to be having more mash soon! That will be good!
Just talked to dad and he is in NM. Said it was snowing but not very heavy. I don't know where he was but the phone kept cutting out!
Enjoy the day! leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a great day. Bit of a break in the rain right now! The gardeners are here but lets get real! Everything is too soggy to mow so they are using the blower thingy to clean up which is silly since the maintenance guy sweep the whole place every morning. I think they should just walk next door to Starbucks and relax and have some coffee. Being a gardener is a very hard job!
The lights are on the tree and a couple of my Hello Kitty ornament are at the top. Merlin went over to check out the lights but then left to get some treats. Food works every time with that cat!
I'm sitting here on moms shoulder keeping an eye on that tree. She took me over to it so I could see my Hello Kitty ornaments but I didn't want to get too close. A bird can never be too careful you know.
I hope you have a fantastic day! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Mom finished up the Christmas cards yesterday which is why I did not get a chance to get notes out! I'm not allowed to touch them so I don't see what good they are! I do get to look at them but I'm sure ripping it a bit would be much more fun!
Still raining here. Not really unusual for this time of the year but we are just getting bigger rain storms this year. The wind is back too! It might be time to see if I can figure out how to build and ark!hehehehehe Nope! We are on the second floor and there is a moat around the buildings so not much chance of flooding here. Driving is a challenge. There are "Water over the roadway" signs everywhere. It doesn't seem to make everyone slow down though. Mom had been hit with a wave a couple of times now. She doesn't drive crazy so she has been just fine.
The tree is still sitting there naked as can be! Perhaps mom will get the lights on it today. Once Merlin figured out there was no food on it, he has ignored it. We'll see how it goes with lights on it. I imagine the ornaments are going to be the real test. Cats are such a bother!
Enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you had a great day! It's really, really wet up here! Guess we are breaking records for it being dark and wet!
Mom did a bit of shopping today. She went to get the oil changed too. Jennifer got off early so mom went to get her and then they went to the Mexican place up the street. Ian and mom are both off tonight so it was a good time for them to go out for dinner! Mom had veggie frajitas and they were so good! She brought back some chips so I could have one!!
We put the tree up but it's not decorated. The lights are not even on it! We have to let Merlin get use to it for a while. He is very interested in it but has gone back to take a nap on the sofa. I think when the ornaments are on it he will probably knock them all off! It should be an interesting season!hahahahaha
Have a great night!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Still stormy here. Lots and lots of wind! Mom had to play dodge the tree branches on the way to work last night!
Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night so I am very happy! I don't know if we have anything planned but I'm sure I can come up with something!
I think mom is going to put the tree up finally. It is going to be very interesting to see how Merlin reacts to it. He's never been around a Christmas tree yet. I think there is going to be a lot of cleaning up to do!!
I hope the day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a great day!
Jennifer came home last night. Her dads friend came down yesterday instead of today so he dropped her off on his way home. He lives north of us.
He and her dad went to see the new James Bond movie. Jennifer wasn't interested so she stayed at his house and cleaned up. They had dinner together before she came home. Mom was surprised to see her. It was a short visit but she had a nice time!
Pretty quiet day around here and that is just fine with me! Mom baked another Razzleberry pie so I had a bit of that. She has to run across the street to the market to get some cat food and then she is off to bed! Only one more night and we get our weekend! YAY!!
I hope your day is going great!
