  Hi Oz and flock
One more day on BC. A gift to us from some unknown source. We have made many friends over the years, some have been very close, family and that will remain forever. With FB and YP we are still a flock that flocks together. Our lives are entwined together from our begins here on BC. No man can separate friends and family. I-5 is a business, looking at these channels as a loss of funds, they fail to look at the more real, human-side but that is business.
We have shared many happy moments, adventures and sparkly mishaps on BC. We have laughed and we have cried together, but above all we have been friends and become a close knit family. Sadly many have opted to close their accounts, unwilling to allow another person to wipe them away since they themselves made them to begin with. I understand that, but plan to remain to the end. BECAUSE IT IS NOT THE END AT ALL.

Sure we will one day have no BC to visit, but we already have moved to other places. It is simply a small bump in life's road. A detour no more. I love adventure. This is a new adventure, going some place new, with new things to learn there. BC was not so easy at first either.

I just wanted to thank you for sharing life with us at the SKY Flock, for being a friend and a family member OZ, you will always be with us, we are a FLOCK that won't be stopped by man's ways of doing business.
HUGS and love
SKY

Come visit me, SKY, thank you for Jan 17th, 2016 BOTD & Little Angel.

  Morning sweet Oz-last day love from Christy & Jen
Well this is it, our last hug and good-bye kiss to dear BC friends, but we ave chosen not to cry because it's gone, rather as Cookie said, we shall smile because it all happened for so long! We are in the middle of a tornado watch and severe storms in Rock Island, the weather fits our mood, this is truly a crappy day! We are going to press on and hope to see many of you on FB and YouPet.com, but we want to remain a part of all your lives, you are all very special to us Dallas'! Good-bye for now, we'll see ya all on the other side of our little rainbow, and as usual, we wish you all a very peaceful Sunday, please give our love to all in your happy loving home, see ya as we are allowed...

Eternal love, from Jenny, Ms LaLo, Angel Christy, Ziggy, & daddy Chuck

  Hi Oz & Flock
In the great Milonga room There was one red balloon
And a picture of-
the big bird channel family
jumping over the moon
And there were four little birds sitting on chairs
remembering all the fun bird affairs
And a quiet old bird who was whispering “hush” Goodnight room
Goodnight moon
Goodnight birds jumping over the moon Goodnight light
And the red balloon
Goodnight fun
Goodnight sun
Goodnight fun time
goodnight great friends
And goodnight to the old bird whispering “hush” Goodnight stars
Goodnight air
Good night noises everywhere

love forever and ever

Hi Oz,
Yipee! I did it thanks to you and many of my wonderful BC friends! I am so grateful. Momma put Lucy and me on YouPet several years ago when one of our BC friends told us about it, but we never used it. I guess we're gonna start as soon as Aunt DJ gets us her tutorial.
Loads of Love and Big Hugs,
Your BBFF, Finnegan

  Hello Elvis~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's sunny and pretty here and only going to hit 76. I can live with that!
Mom got up early to take Ian to work and then took McKenzie on a walk. She made us some oatmeal with pecans and applesauce when she got back. I ate that all up! Dad is getting ready to head off to Montana. I think he's going to New York after that.
Mom goes back to work tonight so she getting her thing ready for the workweek. We are nearly done with the laundry. We need to get George and Gracie cleaned out since we didn't get it done yesterday. That is about it!
We copied all our stuff off BC just in case they decide to shut down earlier. It took a while to move all of the BOTD Archive stuff!! It was nearly 5 years of BOTD's!! Don't know if any bird will ever need the info but we saved it anyway!
Enjoy your day and I hope it's perfect!

  Hello Oz!!
It's so nice to get a blog from you. This will probably be one of my last blogs on BC. :-( It looks like our BC pages will soon be gone. I guess they are going to move much of the articles and information to a website called Petcha, but its not going to be the same because we won't be able to have individual pages for each birdie. I know that we have the facebook page for Bird Community, but it isn't quite the same either. I hope that we can stay in touch on facebook. Mom hasn't been to the youpet page yet. She will probably wait to see what others have to say about it, before she makes an account for us. She is not even sure of how to find everyone, once she starts an account. It is sad that the BC pages are closing down. We'll always be good friends!! Please come and visit me soon.

  Hi Oz
we agree with you completely. i5 will destroy percha just like they are destroying everything on all the animal channels. thats what you do when you want something to fail and use it as a tax write-off. the first thing i5 ever did was cancel bird talk magazine and it went downhill from there.

we are still trying to use bird channel. we guess we are gluttons for punishment. anyway once bird channel has dissolved our bird club i will figure you pet out and try to use it like we did bird channel. it makes me feel good that so many are trying to get connected.

love Cori & Boo Boo

  Hi Oz
Cheyenne,Parker,Apache,Silver and Mom Debbie!
You are so right about how upsetting the demise of Bird Channel is to all of us here!You have been the bright spot in our days and nights,you are the ones who really know what real friendship is all about and like you said those who haven't a fid in their house have no idea of what our parronts go through and will never understand.We will always be there for one another and have always been there for each other.You have been there with love and understanding for everything we've been through,good or bad,happy or sad,you have been there to share our joys and sorrows,our ups and downs and always with a kind word and a way to make us smile.We do have a strong connection to one another,and a deep understanding of what we are feeling.We may have never met one another but its like we've known each other for years and years!And when we do get to meet its like we've know each other all along!You just don't find that in the real world.Our love for one another goes beyond what anyone on the "outside"could ever imagine.You have been the life force of our days.We have always looked forward to come home and visit with you to make our bad days bright!
We have joined YouPet.com and hope that this site will be as welcoming as BC has been for us.We all just know that we don't ever want to lose our cherished family here.You mean so much to us,words just can't describe what you have done for us,given us a reason to smile,given us hope and we are a better world for being in your cherished love and warm wing hugs!We love you so much more and are so blessed to be a part of this wonderful flock and family here.BC may be dissolving but the love for one another here will go on and on forever and always.Your awesome Mom is the same as our Mom,not too computer literate and gets confused so easily when we have to change things.We will muddle through the new website together and help each other out!
My Mom has tears falling as she writes this for us,we love you and only wish we could let you know just how much!You all will always be in our hearts and we never want to be separated from you ever!We love you so very much and always will!
Wishing you a greyt day and we're sending you all our love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for everyone there from everyone here,Loving you always and forever and ever,Dixie,Candida,Peepers and flock and Mom Rose

I hope you are having a fun day! I see they say that it is exciting news! Exciting to who? Not exciting to us since they are destroying something we have worked to build up over all these years. We do have the memories and we will still have each other.
I put a page up on YouPet.com. If you haven't been there yet, check it out! It's fun! The Petcha is going to have a page for birds and you will be able to leave messages according to the email I got. I only got the email from the guy I emailed. The general announcement came in the forum of the newsletter. If we can get the Milonga and other activities going on Facebook it will be okay. I rather like the YouPet and mom put McKenzie and Merlin up with me. I already have a dog and cat as friends! I think the cat is really into it cause she has the most friends on the site. When I signed up yesterday all 12 of the newest members were from BC!hahahaha When you add a picture it takes a while for it to show up so don't worry about that.
Mom and dad went out to lunch for dads birthday. It's on Saturday but he won't be here. Now they are home and mom is off tonight so I hope we get to do something fun. She still has to pick up Ian and Jennifer and then go by the library. She'll go look at books while Ian and Jennifer sit on the bench outside to catch Pokemon. Yep! They are playing that game on their phone. It is rather like a scavenger hunt! They seem to be enjoying it.
She will have to take dad to get his truck later since he is getting a new seat put in tomorrow. Guess the old one was making his back hurt!!
I hope you enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

I hope the day is going great! Sorry for the general type note today but mom has to go pick dad up in an hour so our time is limited.
We posted the reply from Petcha on the calendar page. They say there is going to be a bird part to it. Crystal said they were going to move the stuff from BC over there. Move what I wonder? We have everyones email I think and we think everyone has ours. We are in the BC directory also. We will stay in touch! You have all become part of our lives and we could not imagine a world without you!!!
It is day 2 of McKenzie's recovery and if she did not have that scar running down her tummy you would never know she had surgery! She has been running up and down the hall, jumping on the bed and chasing Merlin! That was just when mom let her out of the crate this morning so they could take their walk!!!! Mom is going crazy trying to keep her quiet. She is not wearing the cone and has not bothered with her stitches. Mom gave her another pain pill so hopefully she will get sleepy and go to sleep. Mom knew this was going to happen even though so many people said that being spayed would calm her down. McKenzie does not have the laid back dog personality!
Enjoy the day and the time we have left here! I know we will figure out something.

  Hi Oz
sorry we didn't get back to you sooner we have been so upset with the news about bird channel closing on july 12th. we probably joined bird channel around 2007 but weren't very active on it and bird channel took away all our points because of it. then we got back on and would just vote for birds but not say anything. eventually Hulk stopped by and started talking and we talked back and it hasn't been the same since. bird channel came to usat a time when we really needed it. who would have thought we would have made such wonderful connections and become good friends with people we had never even met. many we used to talk to have now left bird channel and we always wonder what happened to them and how they are. some have passed on and we miss the conversations and fun times with them. we have a wonderful warm loving family and it is so very sad to see it end. at least a few years ago when bird channel announced we were going to be dust we had enough sense to start collecting email addresses names and phone numbers. we have dreaded that this day would finally come but knew i5 publishing had no interest in keeping us together. we knew we would stay to the very end and knew it would be hard to say goodbye to all our fun times. its very hard to talk right now as tears are making it had to type.

love you forever and ever Cori,Boo Boo and the very bad budgies Paddy & Piddy

  HELLO FROM FINNEGAN
Hi Pretty Oz,
I'm sorry. You must not have gotten an earlier blog telling about Coco. Momma and Daddy belong to a bird club/rescue and Coco was delivered to Momma 3 weeks ago Saturday. Coco is a Goffin's cockatoo, and he's about 9 years old. About a year ago he started pulling the feathers out of his face with his feet. So you can see his ears. His former dad said that he had started having to work longer hours because his dad retired. They have a family business. So he felt really badly for Coco having to leave him home alone for so long every day. He really wanted to do better for Coco which is why he surrendered him to our rescue. He had hoped that he would be adopted by someone who could could give him lots more attention. He really loves Coco and cried all the way to our house which was an hour away! He said it was the hardest thing he'd ever done. This may explain why Coco is not as demanding as most cockatoos. He was home alone most of the time and didn't get hardly any attention.

Yesterday’s show was a really good one. It was at a library and there were a least a hundred or more kids and their folks. Of course after the show, all the kids wanted to either pet or hold (or both) all of us birdies. I think Zoe exhibited an amazing amount of patience, putting up with all those hands! I am pretty much used to whole thing since I’ve been held by thousands of people by now. Today is just a very warm, laid back day for us, but always a busy one for Momma.

We just got the bad news about the BC going down next week. So sad!! It looks like I’m not going to make it to 5,000 votes after all, but thanks to all of you for helping me try.
Big Hugs from Finnegan

I am back for a swim in your pool! And let's have pizza for dinner and then more swimming! When it's this hot, there is no place else to go!
Picabo has on his hawaiian trunks and an inner tube around his belly, a snorkel on his head! I brought a jug of hawaiian punch too!
It is also in the 90s here and has been for months now! Just sitting causes sweat! Mom was looking dor her paints to work on a project and couldn't find them so that led to cleaning out a small portion of the storeroom so she got really hot, sweaty and dusty and the. Remembered the paints were in a desk drawer in the house! Hehehe!

  Hello Oz~
I hope your day is going great!! Sorry we didn't make it over here yesterday but mom was exhausted by the time we got McKenzie tucked in for the night!!
We are being quiet around here so that McKenzie can sleep and recover from her surgery. She did really well and hasn't had to have a cone on yet. She seems to be more bothered by her leg where they put the IV in. She didn't eat much last night but this morning she had her regular breakfast. I shared my pancakes with her too. She has to go back in a couple of weeks to get the stitches out.
Merlin was very upset when mom came home yesterday morning without McKenzie! Who would have thought that he would miss her? He fussed the entire day until mom brought her back. He is such a contrary cat!
It is very nice of the company to switch the back plates! I'm sure lots of people do that! I know sometime people will pick up hardware at moms store and not understand why the same thing is a different price. Mom has to show them that the finish is different! Don't know why some things are different prices for different finishes but they are!
Today is Jennifer's birthday! Mom and Ian got her gift cards since she likes those the best! When mom dropped her off at work all the kids at the daycare were lined up by the fence and sang Happy Birthday to her! It was so cute! Think she was a bit embarrassed by the attention!
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's just spectacular!

  Dear dream bird-love from Heaven, Angel Christy
I think our nasty storms are over for now, and it's about time! We are ready to face our new Friday and although it will be muggy, not to hot! What a senseless loss of black lives and police lives, we do back the badge, and we are against all domestic violence! Dad is sure getting tired of redressing and rewrapping his legs twice a day, but it is a necessary evil to make things better for us! We are planning a quiet peaceful day at home and wish the same for you! TGIF dear BC friends, have a glorious day and give our love all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

It's so good to see you!I have to tell you how beautiful you are,what incredible coloring and such a precious face!We just love your picture!
Oh that is waaaay too hot to be in the 90's and to have to deal with that kind of weather for all of next week!And we think that the humidity and 80 degree days here is a bit too much!I sure do pray that you will be getting some cooler weather there and not have to deal with all that heat for so long!
Oh that is awful but its so easy to hit the wrong button when ordering something on the computer!My dad has done that a few times!It was so good that Build.com was so helpful and cooperative and got the right ones sent out.Those knobs and pulls of Satin Nickel for the back plates really sound awesome!I'll bet Aunt Shirl is really going to just love them!We are hoping that the contractor will be able to finish everything up for you soon!
This morning was a bright sunny morning warm but not as bad as it was yesterday.Our highs for the day will be 81 the lows of 69 and right now its 75.Mom got dad off to work and then she vacuumed upstairs and did some dusting up there that she was putting off until the yellow pollen was gone.Then she came back downstairs and got us all up and had to strip Candida's cage again as she had a chew fest in her cage again so that took an hour to get everything put back in her cage.Mom puts some heavy rope toys and some very heavy large parrot wooden blocks on a sisal rope toy down in the back of her cage along with some heavy cardboard rolls that dad brings home for us so she can't get the papers up to chew.But she does anyway.Mom also has the pizza boxes down under her papers so she has to chew through those first before she can reach the grate.Its going to be another boring day here with nothing of interest going on which we're so happy about!Mom is in slow motion from yesterday and is hoping to take us all out on the deck this afternoon for some sun and showers.Right now its looking like its going to rain,the sun is gone and the skies are getting dark.We might not be able to get outside after all.Mom is collecting the trash and the recyclables to take to the dump tomorrow and getting them in the car and the trash out to the garage to load in the morning.Nana called about her refrigerator and there are two parts on it that are no good,the thermostat and another cooling thing and now the company is waiting for the parts to come in so they can be installed.Mom hopes they come soon so Nana doesn't lose all her food.It sure feels like summer now with the heat and humidity.Where did our cold nights go to?
UPDATE:Skin bro came over just as Mom was going to make some cookies for dad.So he got Candida out and played with her and stayed and visited with Mom for over an hour.We got to go out on the deck after he left and by then it was well after 4:00pm and Mom had to start dinner.She made her cookies and got them in the oven and then got dinner ready.We got to stay out there and di

  Hello Oz~
Hope you are having a lovely day! Power washer guy came back and sprayed my window again!!! McKenzie went to defend it for me!! Mom had to put her on her leash until he was done. Then the gardeners came and used the blower thingy to clean up the sidewalks cause all the gook that was on the building was on the sidewalks!! I am hoping the rest of the day is peaceful!
Mom switched her schedule so she will be working tonight and be home with McKenzie on Thursday night. She will be going in an hour early tonight since she had to have McKenzie checked in at the vet at 7 am. Sure would have been easier if dad could have made it home.
McKenzie and Merlin broke the coffee table this morning! They have been working on it for a while and mom figured it wasn't going to survive! There is one at moms work that has a metal base and wood top so mom is considering that. Guess we are going to have to decorate with industrial items until McKenzie gets older. Mom doesn't like industrial!!!!
I hope you have a beautiful and peaceful day!!!

  Hello Oz~
I hope you had a wonderful day! It wasn't too bad here. Mostly cloudy the whole day and windy too! Not too warm which was nice since we had to keep the windows closed due to the power washing.
Last night wasn't too bad even though it was really noisy and lasted a long time. Non of us got freaked out at all. Mom left the radio turned up for us ans we slept okay.
McKenzie had to go get her blood work done this morning. It went fine and they were only there about half an hour. They gave McKenzie a treat and everyone made a fuss over her. She loves going to the vet!hahahahahaha We shall see how she feels about it after Thursday when she gets spayed.
Dad is not going to make it home until Saturday so mom is going to try to work tomorrow night and take Thursday night off so she can be home with McKenzie. We have read about what to expect but until it happens we won't know. It says that she should be sleeping a great deal the first 24 hours. Mom has to have her there at 7 am on Thursday and she probably won't be released until 7 pm that night. We think everything is going to be just fine. Keeping her quiet for a few days is going to be the hard part!!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Oz!
I am always so thrilled to get a blog from you! Of course Kookie and I will be thrilled to come to your pool for an afternoon. She can bring Doo and we will have a lovely 'too afternoon party! Bet the neighbors will be complaining with all the noise a bunch of 'toos can make! hehehe!
Well, I was sooo surprised to be chosen Prom King! What an honor! Unfortunately I didn't find out until today because I couldn't get on BC last nite! hehehe! Last week when no one else could get on for the original prom date, I was able to get on with no problem. Go figure! Well, there are a lot of people here at the beach this weekend and there is some big sailboat race going on all weekend so guess that is why there is no bandwidth!
My parronts friends are here for two weeks. They leave on Tuesday. They don't want to do anything but swim and sit in the sun and eat. Mom says she has never eaten so much in her life! She won't need to eat again for a month! They went to one of those Brazilian steak houses and mom felt sick from eating so much meat. She did manage to eat a lot of sushi though. Today they went to a local friend's house for fried fish and ceviche.
I hope you have a wonderful 4th of july! It sounds like you and your mom are busy with your family and birthday party. Eat some cake for me! Here is a bag of almonds we can share! And maybe later, let's order a pizza! hehehe!
Big hugs and love, Picabo

Hi Pretty Oz,
We understand...sometimes the BC can be really frustrating!! Coco gave me quite a scare today. I have a boing next to my play stand on the porch and Coco's cage is just a few feet away from my boing. Momma tries to push his cage as far away from my boing as possible because he's quite a jumper. Well, she forgot to push it all the way to the door this morning (about 6 inches), and Coco took a flying leap onto my boing and scared me half to death! I flew to the floor and ran into the kitchen for Momma to rescue me, and she did of course. Momma scolded Coco and put him back on his own cage and told him that it was MY boing. She'd like to put one up for Him, but there's no more room! We birdies have about taken over her porch. (hehehehe)

  Hello Oz~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's a cloudy day up here.
Today we are just getting laundry done and getting moms stuff ready for her workweek. I have been helping by doing lots of yelling! I know mom appreciates it so very much!
When mom opened the curtains in the living room this morning there was a pigeon sitting on the eaves looking in. McKenzie was draped over the end of the sofa looking at the bird. Mom went off to start laundry and clean up the kitchen and when she came back 20 minutes later the pigeon was still there. He stayed there for the longest time just looking in! McKenzie didn't bark or move towards him, she just sat staring at him. It was very strange.
I hope your day is just awesome and lots of fun too!!

I hope you are having a wonderful day!! It's been nice here.
Vent cleaner guys showed up this morning. Mom saw the van yesterday but they must have started at the back of the complex. McKenzie went charging to the door like she was going to bite someone! It was impressive and I'm glad she wants to protect us but the guys were on the roof!! Guess she hasn't figured out that she can't get someone who is on the roof.
Mom bought her a Boo Boo dog today! It's a loofah dog. Mandy had a red one. Mom got McKenzie a lime green one. She really loves it. She really loved the hedgehog too but she ended up ripping it to pieces! The Boo Boo dog makes different noises depending on where you bite it! Kept her busy for a few hours so that was nice!
Mom also found a metal basket to use as a toy box for McKenzie's toys. Had to be metal so she couldn't chew it up. She understands what it's for and they are going to teach her to put her own toys away! Now that should be interesting!
How exciting that you are having company!!! Mom and Ian are working all weekend. Jennifer went to the zoo with her sister and Maddie today and went home with them. She will be seeing her dad tomorrow. She is off work until Wednesday so she can have fun while mom and Ian work!! Dad will be home next week in time for McKenzie to have her surgery!!
Enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a fun day!
I had computer problems because mom clicked on something she should not have! Ian fixed it up for her and told her no more clinking!hehehehehe It did cut into my computer time so if I have not been over I'm sorry! We can blame it all on mom!
No tree trimmers or gardeners here today. They have been here for the past two days and it's been noisy!! We did see a vent cleaning truck but they are not around my place. They are putting new flags up front. Green and Blue! Seahawk colors!! I don't imagine they planned it that way but it's still cool!
Wonder if they are going to have an inspection or if they are going to sell the place??? Probably not since I know they make lots of money off it.
They were giving away tickets to see the Seahawk practice today but they were all gone when mom logged in. It was suppose to start at 10 am but they were all gone at 10 am!! Season ticket holders got first crack at the them! They let the public attend about 12 practices a year. Mom wanted to go on a day when Taima the hawk was there! She loves the players but meeting Taima would be awesome! She knows a few season ticket holders so next year she will get one of them to get her tickets. It's free except for 8$ to pay for the bus to take you to the VMAC center. No parking for visitors there so you have to park at the movie theater across the freeway and take a bus!
Enjoy the day and I hope you get to have lots of fun!!

  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.

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!

  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!
Love and Hugs from Your Friend, Finnegan♥

  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!
