  Hi Oz
that faction at the shore sure sounds wonderful. mom would love to go on a vacation like that. as long as no one is stressed out by the kitchen not being done it sounds like it is coming along nicely and am sure it will end up looking fantastic eventually.

mom says this POA for G-mais really complicated. G-pa's son who is his POA apparently changed all G-ma's mail to his address yet he was not POA of G-ma. since mom is legally G-mas POA all these companies want proof that she is POA just so they will forward G-mas bills to mom yet they don't send any forms to tell you want they need as proof. mom now has forms coming out of the wazoo. she has now spent 3 days just talking with G-mas medication pharmacy on how to pay the bills and legally let them know she is POA. she will now make double copies of everything and send one set to the pharmacy and one set to g-mas health insurance and hope that is enough. Gpas son just opened an account for Gma with SS and told mom she can use that to change G-mas address but according to SS that is illegal so mom will then take all the forms she has with her to SS to change g-mas mailing address to her own and hope she doesn't get G-pas son in trouble for doing it the way he did. mom is not going to take any chances and do anything wrong. dad told mom she should start charging g-ma for being POA and for all this work.

last night after being disappointed that the milonga was cancelled we didn't stick around and didn't realize that it was still going on or we would have stayed. mom stayed up to 3:30am watching a foreign german film called labyrinth of lies about a young german attorney prosecutor who brought to trial 18 former SS nazi officers at Auschwitz. it was a true story and quite fascinating to watch. mom was exhausted when she went to bed and was almost asleep when she felt something walking on her leg. she reached down thinking it was a ant but felt nothing. a second later she felt it again but this time on her thigh and after reaching down she felt nothing. finally she pulled the sheet bak turned on the light and found a CENTIPEDE crawling on her leg. mom was too tired to be horrified or else she would have jumped out the window. she grabbed a pillow and bushed it off of her leg and it ran under the bed. mom is hoping Boo Boo the hunter will find it tonight when she is loose in the bedroom. Boo Boo misses nothing. I AM TERRIFIED OF ALL BUGS, EVEN ANTS AND SCREAM AND FLY IN TERROR FROM THEM UNLESS OF COURSE I AM OUTSIDE WITH MOM AND A BUG FLYS TO CLOSE TO MOMS FACE SO I BITE MOM IN THE FACE TO WARN HER OF THE DANGER.

  Hello Oz~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Nice here. Not too hot and breezy too!
I'm glad I could get on BC today. Yesterday was nuts! I'm really sorry that the Milonga had to be postponed.
Mom made it to PetCo and got me the correct food this time! She also found out that Joy, the little Blue Quaker who had been there for 3 months was adopted! YAY! Well, actually she was purchased but she has a home now and mom is happy about that.
Mom picked up a new toy for McKenzie. It's a Hedgehog and she LOVES it! It's doesn't squeak but it made this funny kind of a laughing noise. Well I should say it made a funny noise because after just one day, it is now a silent Hedgehog! One day! She still LOVES it and is dragging it all over the place. She even tried to take it outside with her!
Mom got the first wave of Back to School done last night. Great time to get any stationery stuff. Mom is waiting for the little notebooks to show up. She always buys 10 of them since they drop them to 1$. We use them to write down stuff for the calendar page and other stuff mom needs to remember. There is a lot of that "needs to remember" stuff!hahahaha
I hope the day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love ya ~ Sugar ♥

  HELLO FROM FINNEGAN
Hi Pretty Oz,
Glad to hear that your Mom had such a wonderful time, AND she's getting a new kitchen! What a lucky girl! Today marks one week with Coco, and he continues to make progress. He definitely favors Momma and rarely will go to Daddy. I don’t favor either Momma or Daddy. I’m an equal opportunity bird! Whoever wants to hold me, I want them! It sure is busy around here today. Yesterday we had a bird show over an hour’s drive from home, but Zoe and I behaved in the car, as usual. I like to talk to Momma when she’s driving. Today she’s cooking for our bird club’s pot luck which is tomorrow. Also, the guys just came and are opening our pool today. I growled at them ‘cause their pump which pumps the water off of the cover is so noisy. I know it seems pretty late to be opening a pool, but we are surrounded by cottonwood trees and Momma likes to wait until they are finished shedding all their cotton. She’s tried opening our pool sooner, but all that cotton gunks up the filter and then she’s out their skimming the pool constantly during the day. She says she has better things to do, like spending time with us and CLEANING (up after us, too)! And then there’s bird club meeting tomorrow after church. I love the food there! They are playing “Bag-it-Bingo”, so she has to look for a couple of white elephant gifts to take, whatever they are. I wonder if one of them is going to be for me. Have a wonderful weekend!

  Hello Oz~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! McKenzie has been a bit crazy this morning. She wants to play but can't decide what to play with. She did the tennis ball for a while and then her new boo boo dog and now it's her rope. I have a feeling she wants everyday to be her birthday! Hey! Who doesn't? Mom got her a Subway kid's turkey and cheese sandwich and she loved it. Mom got veggies on the 9 grain bread and I shared that with her. It was good but I still say pizza would be better!
Mom went back to work last night and had plenty to do. She knew nothing would be done and it wasn't. Always like that but she'll have it all cleaned up tonight. Mom's first Back to School ad is on Sunday! Yeah I know! The kids haven't even been out a week yet!! It's all in the stationery department since the big Back to School area is not set up yet. They are going to set it up in a week or so and then have to move it because moms store is going through a remodel. 3 months of remodel! This will be moms 3rd remodel and they are not fun at all. The store will look very nice when it's done but they have to get through it first!
Dad is in Utah taking his 34 hour break. He had to have the windshield replaced in the truck because it was leaking!! Never heard of a leaking windshield before. At least he has insurance for it so he didn't have to pay for it.
We saw the vacation pictures on FB!!! It was just beautiful! We are so happy that your mom had fun! After all that construction she needed a break!! Kitchens and baths never go smoothly but it will be done soon and looking fabulous! Where did Shirl get the Knobs and Pulls from? Mom just loves how many beautiful ones they have out there these days!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it is just perfect!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Mom heads back to work tonight! Bummer! We had a nice time and mom says we will do it again. She is going to have a real mess when she gets there tonight but she knew that!!
Today is McKenzie's birthday. She's a year old already! This is the day dad picked for her birthday. The first vet figured she was about 6 months old when dad found her. Yesterday was a year since we lost Mandy so we didn't want to use that date so dad picked the 23rd.
She is going to get Subway for lunch since dad found her near the Subway at a truck stop in New Mexico. Mandy always got Burger King since she was found in the trash at a Burger King. If they ever find another dog I sure hope it is at a pizza place!hehehehehehe Subway is okay but pizza would be better!
I hope your day is spectacular!!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Oz~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! McKenzie went walking on the other side of the complex today so no wildlife there. She doesn't seem to care. She got to say hello to a little girl and her mother so that made her happy. That dog really loves attention!
It's the last day of school here and the kids got out early. There is a group of Jr. High kids in the pool. They walked next door to Starbucks and got fancy drinks and now they are playing in the pool. They are playing Marco Polo! It was very exciting the first 5 minutes and I was cheering them on! Half an hour later I must say I'm bored with it and wish they would pick another game to play!hahahahaha
Have a spectacular rest of the day!

  Hello Oz~
I hope you had a wonderful day! It was pretty nice here. We have sunshine and 74 for the first day of summer! There are a few people in the pool.
We did a few things around the house today. We will probably do more tomorrow but since we are on vacation we are trying to rest and do fun things to!
Mom took McKenzie on her walk when Jennifer got home. Since the mole incident, mom has been keeping McKenzie away from fence that separates the complex from the wetland. Tonight McKenzie found a garter snake!! It was along the fence line so she wasn't close enough to hurt it. She sort of jumped back when she saw it anyway. It took off to the corner and went under the fence. Mom has decided that they will not go near the wetland area anymore!hehehehehehe Good thing it was mom and not dad cause dad is terrified of snakes!
I hope your evening is just spectacular!

I hope you are having a great day!! Nice here today for a change. Don't know if it will last but it certainly is lovely to see some blue sky for a change.
McKenzie has been very busy all morning throwing toys in the air and chasing after them. I think she sees herself as a great hunter. I'm not seeing that but if it make her happy, it's okay.
We finished up the laundry this morning and got everything put away. I was very busy with toys yesterday and managed to destroy one of the new ones. Mom says that I got the play cage all messed up in just 24 hours! I think she is very impressed with my work!hehehehehe The evil vacuum will be out later! I know it is necessary but I do hate that thing!
I hope you enjoy your day and get to do fun stuff!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! I am finally getting a chance to get notes out!! YAY!! Yesterday we tried but mom kept putting her head down and going to sleep! Lack of sleep makes her so boring!!!
Been doing laundry today. Always seems to be laundry to do around here! Feathers are so much more practical than clothing! Mom is going to have to clean out the fridge again also. It didn't stay organized for very long! She went to the market this morning and got a big bag of cherries so she washed them and then could not fit them in the fridge! I'm not very fond of cherries.
McKenzie has her appointment to get spayed on July 7th. Dad will be coming home then so he'll be here to help. McKenzie will be happy to have him here since he is her most favorite human!
It's movie night for us! Popcorn and snacks and hopefully something exciting to watch!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  HELLO FROM FINNEGAN
Hi Pretty Oz,
That was quite a week we had last week! Both shows were big successes, especially the show at the school on Friday. It was great and the kids loved us! The outdoor adoption event on Sat. was all right, but extremely hot…92 degrees! Thank goodness there was a nice breeze all day, but Momma still took me in the car for a little while and ran the AC for me to cool down. That was really nice! Still our club made only $15 In donations. That wasn’t much for all the sweating we did. However, we did attract a couple of new members and attenders at our fair the next day.

Our big annual bird fair was a huge success on Sunday, but all of us birdies had to stay home ‘cause Momma and Daddy had to work at it. They were there from 9 am to 5 pm. We were all really happy to see them when they came home. We don’t have the final figures yet as to how much money we raised for the rescue, but it appeared to be very successful. Momma has been trying to catch up at home this week and also get some much needed rest…me, too. That was a big week for a birdie!

Momma just spent about 2 hours on the phone first with a lady and then with her fiancée who wants to surrender his Goffin’s cockatoo to our rescue. Well, he actually doesn’t want to surrender his bird, but feels that it’s in the birdie’s best interest, since he works such long hours in a family business. He only gets to see the poor birdie for a few minutes each day and the bird has started plucking because he’s so frustrated and lonesome, at least that’s what the man believes. Anyway, Momma’s been asked to foster him, and she’s having a hard time deciding since she always fails at the last step…adopting them out to a forever home. The forever home they always end up in is ours! And personally, I’m enjoying not having a noisy cockatoo around.
Love and Hugs from Your Friend, Finnegan♥

  Hi sweet Oz & aunt Debbi-from Jenny & Christy
The only appropriate words for today and this W/E is HOT AND VERY HUMID, so dad will be staying in our home for sure! Nearly every area of our country has severe weather occasionally, but like the cold, the heat does not stick around for very long, thank goodness! Ms LaLo was sure rowdy last night, and extra clingy this morning, but dad always gives her what she wants, she is so spoiled! We are all doing pretty good here at our home, and once dad gets his old motor running, it will be business as usual! Have a Greyt Saturday dear friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see you all tomorrow...

Forever love From Jenny, Ms LaLo, Christy, Ziggy, & our daddy

Can't wait to see pics of the granite and the rest when finished.
Are you going to the shore too? Where will you be going? My mom used to go to Cape May NJ ...Do you know where that is? Hope you enjoy the week.
We had another sunny/rainy day. Mom had her procedure today and did well with that but, almost stopped breathing and is not feeling well. She is on meds for her lungs for 5 more days. On a happy note, cars on the highway (parronts coming home) stopped for a turtle to cross the road. Happy to see that.

  Hello Oz~
I hope you are having a fantastic day! We had a maintenance guy come over to rehang the closet door. Mom couldn't get it rehung even after watching a youtube video. Seems that when they had to dry out the carpet when the washer ran over, they hung the door upside down when they put it back up. Guess that's why the stuff at the top didn't look like what was on the youtube video. They did not fix the thermostat for the fireplace and when the lady called to tell mom they were coming over, she said something about the fridge being broken Mom told her the fridge was not broken. Then she asked about peeling paint and moisture on the ceiling! We don't have that either so I guess the got the work orders all messed up. Hope they remember to come do the fireplace. We don't need it right now but mom turns it on at least once a month to keep the dust from building up.
I sat in the corner of my play cage and kept an eye on the guy. He seemed nice. Said he has a German Shepard mix at home but it's an older dog. Merlin got locked up because he was being nosy! McKenzie was on her leash.
McKenzie got her first grown up food this morning. Of course she ate it with no problems. I don't think there is much food on the planet that McKenzie would turn down!hahahahahaha She will be a year old in about a week so it's time to get her off the puppy food!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's spectacular!

  HELLO FROM FINNEGAN
Hi Oz,
You are just so beautiful, you take my breath away! Momma's trip to the dentist was uneventful, thank goodness! Since there was no pain, the dentist said that her nerve had receded and that there was nothing that really needed to be done except to smooth it off. She said that if Momma wanted her to, she would build up the tooth, but that it wasn't necessary and would just cost Momma money. Isn't it wonderful to have an honest dentist?!

Momma took another trip to the airport today. Skin sis went home to MN. That’s the part Momma doesn’t like. We had a very sad event here last Wed. It was Momma and Daddy’s 20th anniversary and they were getting ready to go out for dinner. Momma was making our veggies and feeding us before they went. She went looking for Pepin, our little Fischer’s love bird, because he wasn’t in the porch cage where she had put him earlier. She looked and looked and called. Then she went over to the big cage where Norman, our foster caique had been earlier. There she found little Pepin dead in the bottom of the cage. Apparently, he had gotten into Norman’s cage somehow, and Norman killed him. Momma and Daddy were so upset. They did go out later, but didn’t have a very good time, and Daddy didn’t eat anything. They were too sad. Friday, Momma called another club member, Mary, who has her own caique and asked her if she would take Norman and foster him. She was so gracious and agreed. So yesterday Momma and skin sis delivered Norman and his cage to her. Momma checked on him today and so far, he's doing well at her house. Momma feels so sorry for Norman, but she said that she just can’t the chance of him killing another of our flock. Mary doesn’t have any small birdies. Her caique is the smallest of her flock, and she’s had her for 15 yrs. So she has a lot of experience with caiques.

Sorry to hear about your G-pa. But it is good that he can get out to visit with the family. It seems that your family has a lot of parties ... good for you.
Can't wait to see pics of the finished kitchen.
Tonight, mom and I sat out in the front entrance screen enclosure. We heard some birds talking and we chatted with them a while. We are waiting for the first really big tropical storm to hit. The weather guy says it may start Sunday night and go thru Tuesday morning. It seems that we are in the rainy season now as we usually have a good rain or t-storm every day or night. Just hope the power stays on cause I need my AC!

  Hi Oz!
What a nice relaxing day by the pool with you! I am glad the rain held off for us to enjoy the pool, your lovely yard and patio and getting suntans! Yay!
I saw a pic of your Aunt Ginny on her birthday on FB! She sure looks perky for her age. You know, we will live that long too possibly!
Today was nice and sunny and not too too hot here. A storm brought rain yesterday afternoon and in the nite it rained really hard. It was a storm going to the Gulf which may turn into a hurricane and go to Florida!
My parronts went to the village for brunch at a new place run by three mexican women called The Three Witches. It was a lot of food for about $3 each! They will go there again! Then dad worked on cleaning the garage and mom cleaned the house. There were some good movies on tv earlier this evening, so mom and I watched some movies.
I am so glad to spend the week with you! I did bring my rain slicker and galoshes just in case since you said it is supposed to rain! At least it is warm! Maybe we can spend one afternoon tubing down the Delaware River. I heard it is fun. Mom did it when she lived in Philly many years ago.
Big hugs and hope everyone is doing okay! Tell your mom to hang in there! She is doing so good with her family!

I hope you are having a great day! It's hot! I took a shower! McKenzie wanted to join me but mom nixed that idea. Don't know if it's the heat or what but she won't sit still today! You would think she would want to plop in front of the fan and cool off! She will probably follow us into the bedroom later since it much cooler in there. She was in there yesterday when mom was trying to sleep. She kept getting on the bed and pushing at mom. Merlin did not want to be left out so he got on moms pillow and tried to chew her hair. Mom finally kicked them both out and they went to hang out with Jennifer in the living room. I was being the perfect bird and chomping on a new toy!
Laundry is finally done and dad has taken the stuff back to his truck. He has to leave tomorrow to go to Illinois.
It's very upsetting to see your parents get older. On Tuesday it will be 15 years since moms mother passed. She had heart problems towards the end and it was rough to see her not be able to do the things she loved. I know your mom is enjoying all the time she gets to spend with her dad! This is something we all have to go through and please know that he is in our prayers!
I hope you have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!

  Hi Oz!
Although i haven't blogged you much lately, I have been thinking of you, my pink friend! And of course I see you on FB and Hope too! She is a really sweetie! Mi bet your mom has fun taking care of her!
Well, after no rainhere since January, we had our first downpour yesterday afternoon! The birdies at the RB were bowling and making all sorts of racket so they were having a good party up there! Mom went out and stood in the rain but the water was so cold, she had to go back under the porch! Hehehe!
We finally finished our house reno and moved back in the house in April. Our bird room has windows on three sides so we all get a view and right now there are no doors to the living room so we can see what is going on in there and on into the kitchen! It is all open! At night, we all get out to fly for a couple of hours and you should see all those lovebirds flying all around the house! They sure are fast! I enjoy sitting on my cage roof and watching them. They come sit with me too! Mom doesn't think I know how to fly although right at the moment, I'm not clipped! She thinks the last and first time I flew was about ten years ago when we lived in Virginia. I flew up on top of Scion's cage and Scion looked up at his roof and mom could tell he was thinking a 747 landed up there! Hehehe!
Is your pool open? I brought some suntan lotion, root beer and thought we could order for pizza! It is so good to see you! Picabo gives Oz a big 'too hug and a beaky kiss!

I hope you had a fabulous day! They did the sprinkler and smoke alarm inspection today. They showed up about 11:30 and looked at all the sprinkler and alarms. Then they set the fire alarm off in the building. It was very noisy! Merlin took off running down the hallway. Mom had McKenzie on her leash so they stayed in the living room with me! I've been through it before and didn't really fuss much but I think it scared McKenzie. a few minutes after they left 2 fire trucks and one paramedic truck pulled into the complex. Don't know if there was a real emergency or if someone thought the fire alarms were for a real fire!
Dad is home. It took mom over an hour to get home after picking him up because there had been an accident on the freeway. It's only 9 miles so that is a really long time. It was just a bunch of traffic backed up since the accident had been cleared away already.
We had an early dinner and now I'm getting ready to hit the night cage!! It's our weekend so we get to stay home and do whatever we like!

  HI BEAUTIFUL OZ!!!
Well the holiday is over now until the 4th of July....So it is back to the normal everyday thing around here...We are having another beautiful day today with lots of sun ,slight breeze and temps about in the low 70s...But, later this week it will be rainy because of that storm that rolled into the Carolina's this weekend is headed this way....
Yeah, your Mom does it the right way take a bus trip to go into NYC...Our Mom told Dad she could never live anywhere in or near tht city..She said maybe out on Long Island would be okay...
So is your Mom done going to birthday parties for now?...That certainly was alot to attend in a close period of time..
Hope you are having a great Tuesday Pecked a V4U...Lots of birdie wing hugs to you my dear friend...Love you, Princess :o)

  Hi Oz
Wow, you sure are going to a lot of parties. Sounds like a lot of re-decorating and many other plans going on ... pretty busy.
Happy Memorial Day. Today started out very nice but after lunch we had a storm and the rain went on for a couple of hours. Then after dinner, we had scary t-storm lasting a couple of hours. The power went out several times. Mom is doing better today, she even went in the pool before dinner. We had some BBQ ribs for dinner and I even licked one ... that was brave of me.

  Hi Oz
WOW THATS A LOT OF BIRTHDAYS TO CELEBRATE. HOW EXCITING FOR YOUR MOM TO HELP OUT WITH THE DESIGNS FOR THE NEW KITCHEN. IF OUR KITCHEN WAS REMODELED THE WHOLE KITCHEN WOULD NEED TO BE RIPPED OUT AND REPLACED SORRY TO HEAR THAT HOES DAD NEEDS CHEMO AND PRAYING IT WILL WORK.

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY. A DAY TO REMEMBER ALL OF OUR FALLEN VETERANS AND HOW BRAVELY THEY SACRIFICED THEIR LIFE FOR US. IT TURNED INTO A BEAUTIFUL SUNNY DAY WITH A SLIGHT BREEZE. MOM WENT TO THE CEMETARY TODAY AND PLANTED FLOWERS AT HER DAD AND BROTHERS GRAVE AND THEN STRAIGHTENED OUT THEIR FLAG POSTS SO THEIR FLAGS WERE WAVING PERFECTLY IN THE SLIGHT BREEZE. THEN A BEE STUNG MOM. MOM FIGURES IT WAS ONE OF HER BROTHERS STILL MANAGING TO TORTURE HER AFTER ALL THESE YEARS. LOL . WHEN MOM GOT HOME DAD WAS OUTSIDE WEEDING SO MOM HELPED HIM AND THEY GOT A LOT OF BAGS FULL OF WEEDS. MOMS VERY TIRED TONIGHT. HOPE YOU HAD A WONDERFUL DAY.

  Hello Oz~
I hope you are having a lovely Memorial Day. It's very pretty here today. Mom took McKenzie for a nice long walk this morning. They ran into Bailey the Malamute. McKenzie always gets down on the ground with any dog she meets but today she started belly crawling towards Bailey. Bailey's mom said McKenzie was doing the military crawl!hahahahaha Bailey is very sweet and very calm. Maybe one day McKenzie will get the calm part down!
Mom thought that if she took McKenzie for a nice long walk she could wear her out a bit and have a quieter morning. Didn't work!hahahahaha
Mom is getting stuff ready to take to Goodwill. She has been putting things in boxes for weeks as she cleans out closets and drawers and now it's time to get the stuff out of the house!
We loved looking at the pictures from Hope's birthday party!! Your mom looks so pretty!! I noticed the Elsa doll! Does Hope like Frozen?? I love watching that movie! I like Olaf the best! He is one goofy snow guy!
Enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  HI OZ!!!
Sure hope your Mom, flock and you are having a nice Memorial Day...Our weather here is sunny and in the mid 70s after the couple of days near 90..It was suppose to be a rainy day here today but we are guessing the weathermen got it wrong...
Lot of pool time for all the pool lovers and the one lake here they have sand around the life guards area and beach front so many people like going to swim at that lake...The other 2 lakes are more for boating & fishing..
The parronts had to go to NYC on Saturday to a Grands birthday party...Nice ride until they got to to George Washington bridge to enter NYC and then it was bumper to bumper over the bridge...But where the party was held it was close to the ocean bay and it was quite breezy and not really hot in fact by evening it got really cool...
So it was a long day for them with the traveling and the party so Sunday they spent the day just relaxing..
Pecked a V4U..Lots of birdie wing hugs to you my dear friend...Love you, Princess :o)

  HELLO FROM FINNEGAN
Hi Oz,
So much has happened since we last wrote to you. We've had many, many bird shows (and I attend every one!), lots of long-term company, and no computer for a week, or computer problems when we did have one, (as it still crashes at least once everyday!), plus BC being down several weeks ago. We’ve also had many birdie boarders while their parronts went on big and little trips. As if all that weren’t enough, another bird arrived at our house (through our rescue) a week ago Saturday! It’s a black headed caique by the name of Norman. That makes EIGHT of us!! Poor Momma, she’s so maxed out! Of course, there’s all the regular day to day activities like doctors’ and dentists’ appointments, and almost constant cleaning! When all is finished, Momma sits down at the computer, fully intending to blog to you, and what happens? She promptly falls asleep!! But then what does she expect at 11 pm?! Then she’s back up at 6 am to go to Curves! This is why she hasn’t been on to blog for me for so long! By the time she’s finished with all her work, she can’t keep her eyes open. I say, “Excuses, excuses!”

Speaking of dentists…Momma broke a tooth last Friday, just two days after she’d been to the dentist. She can’t get back in until Tues. Thank the dear Lord it doesn’t hurt. Also, tomorrow, oldest skin sis comes back for another weeks’ visit. Momma can’t remember when she’s seen so many of her kids so often in such a short time. It’s great!

The cygnets on our lake hatched a week ago. There were 6 to start with, but now they're down to 3. Last year all 6 were killed. We so hope that these 3 survive. Momma takes a personal interest in them and considers them her "outside" flock. We also have 4 families of goslings. Birdies, birdies everywhere!!

Momma and I have missed you and hope you understand how wild and hectic our life is with so many birdies and our commitment to our bird rescue. We so appreciate your blogs to us.
Love and Hugs from Your Friend, Finnegan♥

  Good Sunday morning Ms Oz-Angel Christy & Jenny
I can't begin tell you how nice it is to be back home, but I think LaLo is driving dad crazy with her insistence on being held, but she is so sweet with him! Dad bought us fresh new veggies and fruit yesterday, it will be nice to get some of that yummy stuff, apples, carrots, romaine, but the big dummy forgot grapes, he will however come in to sit and share a banana with peanut butter on it! Sorry to admit we don't care much for the Indy 500, but we will check in on it from time to time! Love each other, and be safe, and give our love to all in your Holiday home, see ya tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny, Ms LaLo, Angel Christy, Ziggy, and daddy

  Hello Oz~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been fun around here. It's fun because I live with a dopey dog and a dopey cat! They are pure entertainment for me!hehehehehe
Merlin decided to sit on the arm of the sofa right next to my play cage. It's far enough away that I can't get him and if he sits still I don't really pay any attention to him. McKenzie brought a toy over for him but he's not interested in that! She brought her new one over for him and he didn't even look at it! McKenzie got on the sofa a sat down right next to him and knocked him off!hahahahahaha She leaned over against him until he went down! He was hissing! Hopefully they will both go to take naps very soon!
Sounds like it's going to be buys for your mom this weekend! My mom is working! Can't believe Hope is 4!! Time sure does fly. Our little niece Maddie will be 4 in August. That is when the new baby is due also!
Picking out the hardware is the fun part! They have so many beautiful pulls and knobs!! I think Shirl and mom are going to have fun with that!
I hope you enjoy your day! Should you get bored, come on over. We can make some popcorn and watch the show!!!

  Hi Oz
Can't wait to see the finish pics. We have to wait to do any more at our house. Dad is working on the yard this summer. Our pool was too cold for mom at 82! Now she is sick and will have to wait to go in the pool.
Our weather for the next 8 days is 90 degrees and 75 at night with a chance of a little rain at night for a few days ... not bad.
Mom is sick, thanks to the kid on the plane coughing and sneezing on her for 4 1/2 hours! I'm wearing my nurse's scrubs and I'm on duty 24 hrs for my mom.

Ooh ... you are having lots of party time, have fun.
I'm back! I missed mom but she had a good time at the bridal shower and site seeing. I found out that I'm honorary flowerbird girl. This is eggciting! Mom got home at 3am so has been moving slow today. She missed me and dad and our warm weather (88 to 90). It was in the 60's and low 70's in UT! Hope all is well with everybirdie.

  Hello Oz~
I hope the day is going great! It was boring around here today but I enjoyed it. I spent time with mom while McKenzie and Merlin took naps. They take naps just about the same time everyday so mom and I can plan playtime!
The construction dudes are back and putting the barriers on the roads. They had 2 big trucks with the cement barriers on them. The put them down and then painted them yellow! They didn't finish the whole street so I imagine they will be back tomorrow. It was fun to watch them! After that all that is left is painting the lines. No more beeping trucks after that! Thank Goodness!!!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!

  Hi Oz!!
I hope that you are enjoying the weekend!! It has been rainy and chilly here in NJ, and the weather has just started to clear up. Mom has been having trouble getting onto the BC page. She and dad were also away in Cape May for a few days and she finally got onto BC to do some blogs for me tonight. Mom's computer is slow and bogging down so I hope that I can visit with a few more friends before the night is over. Mom was excited to see that I won bird of the day yesterday!! Thanks for visiting with me at the castle. I hope that you have a great week and fly in soon!!
Your friend,

  HI BEAUTIFUL OZ!!!
Wow!!! It looks like Mom is going to be busy with parties..Hope she has a good time...Everything you are telllings us about the remodeling sure sounds really nice and we know it is going to look beautiful when all finished.
After 2 days of great weather sunny and warm temps we now are also having some rain again after just having a whole week of it...Sunday another day of showers and temps only in the 60s..The parronts are ready for the warmer temps to stay...
Your Mom is so right to try and think that way..But, at times you just cannot do that...
Baby B/G the Sun Conure is so much different from us Cockatiels and Mom is having a fun time with him/her...She is going to get the DNA testing done.
Have a wonderful day...We love talking to you..Pecked a V4U...Many birdie wing hugs to you my dear friend.....Love you, Princess :o)

  HI BEAUTIFUL OZ!!!
The parrons are doing okay..Mom has her good and bad days..Dad is now trying to get use to using a C/Pap machine that the doctor told him it is a must to use at night..Doesn't like it...
Do not if I told you but skin brother bought Mom her parrot she always wanted for her birthday in April..It is a beautiful baby Sun Conure...Do not know yet if it is a boy or girl...So for now the name is Baby B/G(boy/girl)..Until skin brother takes it back for DNA test...There are test kits you can get and do it yourself but Mom is a bit afraid to do it..
Wow!!! everything you told me it sounds like it will be very nice when everything gets finished..If your Mom is lucky it will be all finished when she returns from her vacation..
Love hearing from you...Sure hope you are having a wonderful TGIF...Pecked a V4U...Many birdie wing hugs to you my dear friend...Love you, Princess :o)

Can't wait to see the finished pics. Our pool is 85 to 89.
It was another summer day here and all is well. This is a quick bye bye (typist should have been in bed over 2 hours ago). I'll be offline until Tuesday night. Mom has to fly and dad won't blog. See you then.

  Hello Oz~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It was really pretty this morning but now the sky is getting dark and I think we are going to have rain the rest of the day.
We are finishing up laundry which is pretty boring. Mom says is necessary! I suppose!
My play cage was all cleaned up this morning when I came out so I am going to have to spend the rest of the day redecorating it. I don't understand why mom can't appreciate how hard I work at making all those lovely piles of wood!! I know she wasn't too happy about me trying to feed the puppy again. I figured that if those pellets are good for me they have to be good for the puppy too! Right? I am keeping the good stuff for myself I must admit, but McKenzie seemed to appreciate what I shared with her!
Sure sounds like a lot of exciting things going on around your house! I bet that back splash is going to be beautiful! It must be so nice to have all those new things around. We loved seeing the pictures on FB. We love the pictures of Hope!!
Enjoy the day!

  Hello Oz~
I hope you are having a great day!! I'm really sorry I didn't get around much this weekend. Mom was trying to rest to get rid of the pink eye/cold.
Unfortunately moms eyes started bothering her last night at work. She had her drops with her and used them. They have been waxing the floors for the past two nights so it may just be the fumes from that. Mom stayed as far away as she could but had to walk through the area to get to the office. Tonight the store is closing two hours early so that the system can be shut down for updates. It won't be back online until 4 am so mom will be helping the freight guys.
Mom is trying to rest during the day but I think that "I need to rest" translates to "let's chase the cat" in dog language. I have been a very good nurse and sit right next to mom and keep her company! She only has tonight and then it's our weekend again! YAY!
I have taken over the Kissing Booth for the next 2 weeks. It's all about food!! Come on over and have a bite to eat! We will be doing all sorts of great snacks!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's spectacular!

  Hi Oz
That isn't surprising any more for the center of the dust ruffle to be paper-like. many mattress pads are made with the sides that are paper like and rip so easy. Even many of the pricey ones are like that too. They just rip. Mom has the aqua sheers up and the other ones came too. But she actually likes the sheers better. She is keeping both just in case ... LOL!
I hope everybird had fun at the derby tonight. I was thrilled to win the hat contest, thank you to all who voted for me. I hope everybird picked up their pics on the Milonga page. So sad that i5 wants to delete our club this year. I have posted the order of finish for all the races on the Derby Farms page ... all 6 years of them!
I had a busy day of helping mom clean some of the house and then prepare for the race. Looks like I will be helping with skinsis's invites too. A bird's work is never done!

  Hello Oz~
I hope you are having a great day! Sorry I didn't get a note out yesterday but mom has pink eye and a cold and feels miserable. She didn't go to work last night. The pink eye stated in the right eye only but when she woke up last night it was both eyes. Her vision was pretty blurry so she figured she had better not try driving until they cleared up some. They feel better today but she still looks really weird! She is using the drops and it shouldn't be too long before the redness goes away.
I have to say that I have been an excellent nurse! McKenzie and Merlin are not being so good. They both want attention all the time! I guess they still have not figured out who is the favorite around here!
Merlin got behind the washer this morning and mom had to pull it out to get him out! Right now they are both taking naps so I have a chance to get some notes done!
We are getting some laundry done and George and Gracie need to be cleaned out again. Dad bought the wrong filters and they are not working very well. Mom will have to pick some up next time she is down in town.
I hope you have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Oz~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's very spring like here and I have been enjoying the sunshine!
We did chores yesterday since mom was off. Mostly going through old mail and straightening up the linen closet. Mom got some shelf liner at the dollar store and lined all the shelves in there. It looks very nice and we even found more stuff to donate to the Goodwill!!
We really should have gotten on BC earlier than we did but we had no idea they were going to take the site down last night. It would be really nice if they gave us a "heads up" but I suppose it is not important to them. All the sites were down so they must have been doing maintenance on the server.
It's back to work for mom tonight so we are getting the rest of the laundry done. My play cage was all cleaned when I came out this morning and I have new toys also. I guess I am going to be a busy bird today!!
The blinds are just awesome. If they are cordless, how do you open them?? Cordless would be great around here since mom has to tie the cords up to keep Merlin from trying to chew on them! I suppose it's a cat thing cause I sure don't understand it!
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's just spectacular!
