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

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

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having an awesome day! We are doing laundry so it's pretty boring! Don't mind at all since hanging out with mom at home is my most favorite thing next to chewing up wood!
Construction guys did not show up last night. Guess there is just too much traffic on Friday nights. I know they won't be here tonight but now I'm not sure about Sunday. It probably won't take them more than another week to finish anyway.
It's sunny here and suppose to be hitting 80 on Monday. Rain will be back on Tuesday so I suppose I can put up with one warm day!hehehehehe
We have been looking at the videos from the NFL draft picks. It's so cool to see how happy these kids are when they get picked for a team!! I bet it's a day they will remember forever! One of the kids is from my town. He'll be playing for the San Francisco 49'ers. His mom is a 49'ers fan so that is cool!!
Enjoy the day!

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

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

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

I hope you had a wonderful day! We had lots of plans for today but nothing got done. Mom was on the phone with various family members until 3 pm. Then she had to go pick Ian up, then Jennifer up, get dinner and clean up the kitchen! Not a very exciting day but I did get to yell hello to the family!
Mom has 2 younger brothers. One lives in Arizona and the other lives in California. They and their families are going to drive up to Portland Oregon this summer and want mom and her sister to meet them there. Portland is only 2 hours south of us. As usual with families, no one can decide on a date. The boys want to stay down there for a few days but mom and her sister have us pets to take care of so they only want to go for the day. Moms sister and her youngest brothers wife can only be together for a few hours before they are at each others throats!hahahahahaha Gotta love family!
I hope you enjoy your evening!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I did not get many notes out yesterday just because we ran out of time! Actually, it's all moms fault since she fell asleep when she got home from work! Guess she was tired but it sure did put us behind! We managed to get the stuff done that needed to get done but it was time for her to go to bed after that! She only has one more night to work and then we get our weekend!
Really nothing exciting going on. Jennifer is not feeling well so McKenzie and I are trying to be quite so she can sleep! Merlin sleeps all day anyway so it's no big deal for him! I'm doing pretty good but McKenzie doesn't understand quiet yet.
I hope your day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

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

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

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

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

We are cooking some sketti right now and I can't wait! Mom got a huge tub of the organic salad greens so maybe I'll have a few of those too.
Not much else going on since it's Sunday. McKenzie saw a new dog moving into the apartment above the office building and she keeps wanting to go out to see if she can meet him! No luck yet but she did get to see her poodle friends Molly and Jack! She is becoming a social butterfly!hahahahaha She is still very submissive with any other dog even the poodles. Maybe this is just the way she is which is not a bad thing! Rather have her sweet than trying to run after every dog she sees!
Snow???? No snow is allowed in April! That is Sugar's new rule!hehehehe You live in the desert and we both know how unpredictable the weather is there! It's still an awesome place to live and snow in April does keep it interesting!

I hope you guys are having a fun day! Sunny here and very pretty.
Nothing going on around here today. Mom is about done with her laundry and then she's off to bed since she has to work tonight. She only got a few hours of sleep yesterday and is really tired. No taxi service for anyone today so she can just go to bed and get up when it's time for work!
Dad made it back to Reno but it took 6 hours. He had to change planes in San Francisco but he said that went fine. Don't know why it took so long. He didn't check in any bags so it must have just been getting from Reno down to Sparks where the truck was! He is there and ready to leave Nevada!
Enjoy the day buddy!!

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

I hope you are having a great day! Cool and rainy here. We had to put the heat on for a while so the living room was warm enough for me to come into!
My play cage was a clean when I got up this morning! This always seems to happen on Thursdays! Mom gets up early to take Ian to work and then comes home and cleans my cage! I got some new toys in it and am working to get some decorating done. I have already got a lovely pile of chewed up wood on the bottom of the cage!
I supervised the kitchen clean up this morning and then got some apples and pears. Mom bought the pears at Costco last week and they are just now getting ripe enough to eat! It was pretty good but I still like the apple better.
We have not seen Shaun the Sheep tv show but mom will look for it. We have Amazon Prime, Netflix and Hulu Plus so it's probably on one of them. We noticed a new Alvin and the Chipmunks movie out also! I love those squeaky little guys!

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

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

We have managed to get some laundry done but mom is going to have to finish up the kitchen to get George and Gracie's tank cleaned out. I suppose I will help by supervising.
Starting out cloudy here but it's suppose to be back to sunshine this afternoon. We are getting spoiled with all the sunshine lately! No complaints because it's been very pretty.

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

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

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

I hope you had an awesome day! Oh I know there are lots of places that could use our rain. We actually had a drought up here this summer but it only lasted 2 months. It rains so much up here that even a few weeks with no rain and everything starts to turn yellow. Luckily that does not happen much. You get use to the rain quickly and it makes you appreciate the sunny days so much more. It's funny but when we get snow, everyone says they wish it would rain and melt the snow!
Nothing exciting going on today. It's our weekend now and mom is just looking forward to getting some sleep!
Ian got the new Star Wars movie in the mail today so I think we are going to watch it tonight. Dad is home and he has not seen it yet. I know there will be chores to get done tomorrow! That is never much fun!!
Enjoy your evening!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a great day! We got lots and lots of rain. It was raining really hard last night but this morning we got to see a beautiful rainbow! It was awesome and an excellent way to start the day!
Mom has one more night and then it's our weekend!! Can't wait for that! I love weekends! Doesn't matter which days of the week it shows up on as far as I'm concerned.
Moms sister called a little while ago and told us that the 3 baby canaries did not make it. It's so sad. Someone told her sister that canaries need to be over 2 years old before they breed and hers are not yet 2. She said no more eggs! She told mom if they laid any more she was going to take them away. Mom told her that might make them want to lay more. I think she should separate the boys and the girls and then she won't have a problem!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect!

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

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! We have been busy so this has to be short! Mom still needs to get Gracie and George cleaned up!
Mom was in the kitchen putting the groceries away and McKenzie tried to eat Merlin's food! Mom said "McKenzie No!" and I repeated it! Everyone started laughing. Mom said she knew I was going to learn that phrase since it's what I hear the most now!! I can help now when McKenzie is doing something bad!
Enjoy the day!!

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

  Hello Jude~~
I hope you are having a great day! Snow???? That's funny! We didn't get a whole bunch of snow in Mojave but it was always windy. We use to call it the "W word" and no one was allowed to say wind! It was a pretty place to live but mom is very fond of forest so we live in the perfect place now.
It's another beautiful day. It was nearly 70 yesterday and it felt very warm! Guess it's hard to jump from 40's to 70. A gradual increase would be easier to handle. It's the time of year where you have to layer clothes since it's still cool in the morning but by afternoon you need to lose the jacket! Mom does that anyway since the store at night is unpredictable. The office will be freezing cold and when she gets to out into the store it can be hot.
We are getting laundry done and then mom has to go out for a while. She'll be going to bed when she gets back since it's back to work night for her! I really do wish weekends lasted much longer than 2 days!
Moms sister is not sure if the 4th egg has hatched or not. Mama canary gets nervous when her sister gets too close so she is keeping her distance for now. Can't wait to see pictures of them!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's perfect!

  Hello Jude~
I hope the day was wonderful! Sunshine and blue skies here. It got near 70 also. I think tomorrow is going to be just as nice. It certainly is nicer to take McKenzie for a walk when the weather is nice.
Mom got the vacuuming done and dad followed with the carpet cleaner. They still need to do parts of the carpet but they ran out of soap! Can't say I'm sorry cause it sure was noisy with both machines going! Looks nice and clean though.
Mom cleaned out under the fridge and the stove this morning. She didn't even have to give McKenzie a rawhide to keep her busy because she went out to sit with dad on the balcony. Merlin hasn't been feeling well today so mom has been keeping him separated from the puppy. She just gets too rowdy and he can't handle that now. He is doing better this afternoon. I think it was hairballs! Time to get more of that stuff that mom puts on his paws! I think he actually likes it!
I have been helping by doing lots of yelling! It's always good to let the joy out and let mom know I'm thinking about her! She was only a few yards away but I still want her to know that I am full of joy and want to share it with her!
The baby canaries are doing well. Mama canary is still siting on the 4th egg so hopefully it will hatch soon! Moms sister already had people asking for them so they will all get good homes! Now she wants to figure out how to keep it from happening again!
Enjoy your evening and I do hope it's perfect!

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

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

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Oh we remember the tumbleweeds. They use to blow across the open desert behind our house and pile up against the fence. They are kind of cool. Some people where we lived would make snowmen out of them! They were totally goofy.
We have wind again today but not horrible. It always seems to be windy where I live. Makes the flags out front look awesome!
I'm not sure if you know Jenny Lynn's dad Uncle Chuck but he is in the hospital. We don't know the particulars. Mom talked to him this morning and he seems a bit confused. He was up and going to have lunch so that is a good sign.
We have been thinking about baseball and how much we all miss it. It would be very hard to do these days since BC is unpredictable but I sure do have some great memories of the games. It was a great idea and was lots of fun too!
Mom is getting things ready for back to work tonight. She buys dried fruit, nuts, cookies and crackers and puts them into bags so they are all ready to go for everyones lunch. McKenzie stood right by her while she was doing it just in case something fell to the floor. She seems to be very good at cleaning the floor!hehehehehe
Have a great day!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! We did some chores and then mom had to run over to the market to pick up a few things. Dad is making home made pizza tonight. It's Ian's birthday and they both love that pizza. I'll be getting a nice piece of crust!
Nothing else interesting going on here. It's been a mostly quite day and that is just fine!
I can imagine bird feeder flying through the air in those winds! That would be very dangerous! I can imagine one of them smashing through a window!! Glad you guys are okay. I bet it was very noisy! I always hate it when we have big winds because of all the noise! We have flags out front of the complex and you should hear them when the wind gets going!
Kind of freaks the dog out still since she doesn't know what the noise is!
Hope your evening is just wonderful!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you had a great day! We remember the very windy days from when we lived in Mojave. Usually February is the windy month up here but this year it's been March. We are getting lots of rain this week too but that is just fine with me. Keeps everything nice and green!
It's our weekend! YAY! Don't know what plans we have but it's just awesome to have mom around for a few days. Dad got home last night and he'll be here for a week or so. Someone backed up into his truck and smashed the front so it's in a shop in Reno Nevada. Dad was not in the truck at the time. He was parked at a truck stop in Reno Nevada due to heavy snow on Donner Pass. Guess lots of trucks had to stop and one of them backed up into dad!! It will all be fixed in about a week and in the meantime he gets to stay home for a while. He can help with puppy duty!hehehehehehe
Enjoy your evening buddy!!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a fun day! Day 2 of spring and it's still raining here. Can't complain since it decided to snow in some places! Snow in Spring! I suppose Winter just wasn't done yet. One last snow storm before it moves on!
Mom has been on the phone with Met Life, which is our auto insurance. They called dad and left a message about our claim for an incident in the Walmart parking lot! We didn't file a claim and mom was not at Walmart yesterday! Mom has no idea what is going on. She finally got the voice mail for the lady who called and left her number and name. Now we wait for her to call back. This should be very interesting!!
Not much else going on today. Tomorrow is the start of our "weekend" so I hope mom has lots of fun things planned for me!
Enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Jude~
Happy Spring!! It's finally here! I have heard that a few bird actually had snow for the first day of Spring! That's just not right! I have clouds but that is the way Spring looks here in the Pacific Northwest! We have lots of bright yellow daffodils to make up for the lack of sunshine!
Mom baked an apple pie this morning and I just had some. It was yummy! McKenzie tried a little piece and she liked it too! Merlin turned his nose up at it. If you have every smelled what cats eat then you will know that they have no taste whatsoever when it comes to good food!hehehehehe
You should have seen the stash of dog toys mom found under the sofa! McKenzie is acting like she got a bunch of new toys when they are just some old ones she pushed under the sofa. Most of them are from Christmas! It will keep her occupied for a few minutes at least!!
I hope your first day of Spring is just perfect!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I am only doing a few notes today since mom only got 3 1/2 hours of sleep yesterday. She is like the walking dead!hahahahahaha Lots of traffic so she got home late yesterday from taking Ian to his doctor appointment. He is just fine and has to go get blood work done on Monday. It was too late yesterday. Ian hates needles and he has to fast for 12 hours so I feel sorry for him! It's all part of that check up thingy!
Everyone is home today so they can take care of McKenzie while mom sleeps.
McKenzie is in heat. She is not acting any different at all. She is probably too young to even know what is going on! That is a good thing! Bad thing is that we have to wait about a month before we can get her spayed. They would not do it sooner because of her mange and now we'll have to wait for this heat thing to be done with! A lot of vets say you should get them spayed before their first heat but it wasn't an option for McKenzie.
I hope you enjoy your day!

  Hello Jude~
I hope you are having an excellent day! Yes the downside to Spring is allergies! Lots of wind up here this month so I think that is making it bad for some people!
It was a beautiful day and when mom went to pick Ian up she did not even need a jacket! She is about ready to leave to take him to the doctor. He is having some kind of check up thingy! I wonder if it's the same kind I have??? Better tell him to watch out for that needle!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!
