  Hello Sam~
I hope you are having a great day!! Still rainy and windy up here but the wind is not as bad today! Good thing cause lots of people lost power. There are tons of trees up here and a lot of them came down. Branches too. Mom's store was the only one with power so there were lots of people shopping there yesterday. They told mom that the line for the gas station was out on the street! They were the only ones in the whole town who had working gas pumps!
I'm busy munching on an apple while mom gets my notes done. Mom doesn't have to take anyone anywhere today so we spent the morning playing!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a hug!
With love ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Sam~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still very pretty here and only in the 80's. Rain is suppose to come back for the weekend and we sure could use it! We are not use to being so dry for so long. Everything is yellow and I want it to be green again!
We are getting laundry done today. Mom has to work tonight but she'll have Friday night off. She is going to the library later to get me more story books and she will see what movies they have in. Friday movie night is my favorite! Even if the movie isn't good I'll still have popcorn!
Enjoy the day and I hope you get to do lots of fun things! Please give mom our love!

  Sammie my sweetest sweetbeak...
....if you mom just reloads the BC page all will be restored. I know our mom has problems all the time with the gallery or blogs go missing. Mom tried to upload our paddle boat portrait and BC complained it have to be a jpeg file--what els would it be??!! SHe will work on that. Thank you for taking me to the Milonga last night. I am sorry I was soooo tired but entertaining all the company all day long and having to step up for mom and listen to the redundant and boring description of my heritage and how I came to be with the flock....aaaarrrgghhh...then just for poops and giggles, I would wolf whistle at the men (dorks in shorts) as they walked through our room. I have never seen such unsightly beings in my entire life! Wider than a Mack truck and wearing horizontal stripes and yeah, cargo in the cargo shorts--more like junk in the trunk! But I figured I would entertain being stuck inside during "lock down"! I love our avatar and portrait. Mom already printed a copy of each to post in her lab at work! (maybee taking down a few pics of CuBird and Kookie, heheheh) LOve and winghugs, Miranda

  Hi Sammy
It was wonderful to see you on BC again last night! I hope you are back for good now. We all miss you when you aren't here. Mom will be here and waiting for the call after 4 today.
The milonga was so much fun last night! Super soakers, water balloons, paddleboats, jet skis, all that great food, and of course, all the great company made it a night to remember! It was also good to see the new faces there. Thanks to Kiddo, Sweetpepper, Taz, Kaji and Lizzie, and Sam for the great time. The Scruffy birds played great beach songs, they sounded fantastic.
Today is looking like another pool day (yay), and the last whole day until next weekend. The rest of the week they will open at 3:30 when the kids are out of school. Mom and her sis are thinking of joining the Olympic for a month. It's a local gym that has both indoor and outdoor pools, and Mary, the owner, keeps the outdoor pool open as long as she can through September, and sometimes even into October.
I hope you are having a wonderful summer day, full of good weather and lots of love and playtime. Hugs, Willie

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.

  Hello Sam~
I hope you guys are enjoying the day! You look fabulous! I know it's going to be a very exciting Milonga!
We had a red ring around the sun this morning. Everyone was talking about it and trying to figure out what caused it when mom reminded them that there are huge fires over the mountain. It was pretty but it is so sad to think about what those people are going through!
Lots of Christmas lights and outdoor Christmas decor showed up last night! Yep! We are all ready for Christmas, right? I am thinking of making my own holiday to celebrate Parrots! I haven't figured out all the details yet but I know I'm going to have lots of food involved with it! I think the parronts should give the parrots presents too!! I'll work it all out!!
Enjoy the day!!

  Hi Sammy
Great new pic and avatar, too! You are such a photogenetic guy! Mom says tomorrow is fine, after 4 or so.
John painted the kitchen last night, and mom unwrapped one of the tiles to see how it looked. It's a nearly perfect match with the light blue! He also put up a new LED light fixture. He thinks mom will never have to change that light in her life, from what it says on the package. Mom has a refund coming from the counter people, but she has to go to Home Depot to show them her credit card again. She may buy more LED lights when she goes, because they are really bright and environmentally friendly.
Today and tomorrow look like pool days, though. They are the last whole days of pool time until next weekend, so mom will take advantage. There is a local Greek restaurant where she and her sis will go tonight, too. That means we won't have our out of cage time until after dinner, but we'll get it then.
I hope you are having a perfect summer day, getting lots of sunshine and love. Hope to see you tonight at the milonga! Hugs, Willie

  Hello Sam~
I hope you are having a perfect kind of day! I just finished some apple, cinnamon, pecan oatmeal! I must say I think this is my favorite so far! I like all the oatmeal that mom makes but the pecans were a surprise!
The rain storm we had yesterday did not help with the fire on the other side of the mountain. I guess it made it worse since it caused more wind. I feel so bad for all those people.
Mom went back to work last night and of course there was tons of work waiting for her. There is a back up person but she is in the garden and they don't want her to do anything but the garden. Kind of makes it useless to have a back up if they are not going to be able to do the work! Mom will catch up eventually.
Believe it or not, they already have the Christmas jammies out for the little ones. Mom says the baby that can wear it has not even been born yet! Talk about planning ahead! The Halloween ones are out too and all the Autumn decor. That stuff is nice to look at but I don't think anyone is ready to think about Christmas yet.
Enjoy the day!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi SamIAm
Mom and I are very worried about you and your mom. It seems nobirdy has heard from you in a while. Sure hope all is well at your house.

The milonga is this Saturday, but if you can't make it with the band we totally understand and will make do with records and CDs. Just know our hearts and minds are with you and holding you near.

  Hello Sam~
I hope your day is going great! I've been out sitting with mom all morning and I'm having a wonderful time. I chewed on her shoelace, preened a bit. Chewed on her jeans, preened a bit. I am in a chewing, preening kind of mood today! This molt I am going through is horrendous! Mom is wondering how wild Amazons fly when they lose 4 tail feathers while molting! I can't fly so how should I know??
My play cage was all nice and clean when I came out this morning. Mom said there were so many fuzzy feathers everywhere that it took forever! When she finally finished up the cage, Merlin went over and threw up right in front of it! Hairballs!! Guess he didn't want to feel left out with all the cleaning going on!
There was suppose to be no rain this week but mom went to the car wash so of course it rained this morning! I just hope it continues on over the mountains and rains over there. There are so many fires there and they could really use some rain!
I hope you have a very fun day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Sam~
I hope you are having a lovely day! It's been nice here so far. It's moms last day of vacation. Bummer! She has to go back tomorrow night and I am not happy about that. She tells me we will have plenty of time to spend together so not to worry.
We are still working on the Linen closet. There is lots of stuff in there! We have been able to get rid of a bunch of stuff so far and it's looking good!
We read that we are suppose to have 3 big snow storms between December and February this winter. It was in the Farmer's almanac. They were pretty right on with the summer prediction so we tend to believe them. Not looking forward to that. At least when you know ahead of time you can prepare.
I hope you have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!

  Hello Sam~
I hope you had the most wonderful day ever! It was nice here. We are still having sunshine but it's not really hot.
We spent the day cleaning. It took forever to clean the mini blinds but at least that does not have to be done too many times a year! We washed the drapes and cleaned the fireplace too. The living room looks good now and tomorrow we will pick another room to do.
Dad come home this afternoon. He has to take that 34 hour break so he'll be here until Wednesday. He's already gone to sleep since he was up all night. He did make sure to give me a goldfish before he went to sleep! Do I have him well trained or what? hehehehehehe
Tonight mom and I are going to watch Star Trek Into Darkness. I like that movie and we think Zachary Quinto is fabulous! He has done Leonard Nimoy proud!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Sam~
I hope you all enjoyed your Sunday. It was quiet around here. Mom had some stuff to get done and I just hung out and played for a while. Then I wanted to sit with mom so we did that for a few hours. It was fun!
We are having a short vacation for the next 4 days so I suppose I will be doing lots of supervising. Dad will be home tomorrow. He has to deliver in Seattle and then take a 34 hour break. There are very strict rules about how many hours he can drive and how much of a break he has to take. There is a computer in the truck that tells him exactly how many hours he has left to drive in a day! The truck will actually shut off if he goes over! Such amazing technology!!!
Have a great night!

I hope you had a great day. It was nice here. We started out the day with lightening and thunder booms. It as very pretty but very loud. The sun cam out later and it was a nice day.
I supervised lots of chores today. I was rather boring but mom did take time out to play with me and put Rio on for me to watch! I just love that movie and I had popcorn too!

I hope your day has been just fantastic! It's warm and cloudy here so you know what that means! Muggy! Don't like that much but it doesn't happen much.
The guy came to fix the dryer today. It was the plastic part that covers the drum that was making it squeak. Mom already knew that since she watch a youtube video and had already opened it up to take a look. It is not squeaking anymore and it is drying the stuff so it's all good!
It's our weekend now but I don't know what we are going to do yet. There are lots of chores to get done so I'm sure we will be doing that for a while. I think playing with me should be high on the list too! Actually, I think it should be the only thing on the list!
Enjoy your evening and I hope it's just lovely!

I hope you are having a great day! The Bad Mom went out to get stuff done for the car yesterday and was gone for a long time! I was not happy at all! Then this morning the Bad Mom drove Jennifer down to her dad's house! She was gone for a long time again!! She really should know that she needs to be here doing what I want to do!!!! Anyway that is the reason I didn't get any notes out yesterday. The car had to have a smog check, then mom went and bought an expensive sticker and then got the oil changed. She tells me it's all important stuff but it was very boring around here with just dad and the cat to keep me company! I expect her to make it up to me somehow. Maybe some corn bread!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been very nice here this morning. Dad closed the window up in the bedroom because Merlin was howling again!hahahahahaha Mom told him welcome to her world!
Cleaning going on around here today! Mom was doing the bathrooms while dad moved my cage out and swept up my latest art project. Guess I'm going to have to spend the day making a new one! I really didn't like him moving the cage with me in it. He even used the evil vacuum when he was done sweeping. I am not very happy with dad right now!
Our dryer is squeaking so they are going to come over and take a look at it later. Mom knows what it is already since she opened it up to look. She watched a youtube video! It's a plastic thing that covers the drum. It's a very old dryer so we are hoping to get a new one. At least it still works!

Dad is home and has been watching a movie this afternoon so I don't know if I will get to watch a movie later or not. It's okay since he's not around much and I can be nice and let him have the TV for a while. I'll still have my story later!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's going to be a billion degrees here again!hahahahahaha One month of summer to go and hopefully my rain will come back!
Russell Wilson is going to be a Seahawk until 2019!!! I guess he knew how much this 12th bird wanted him to stay! He is going to get a gazillion dollars! Well close to that I think! Now we have to worry about whether or not they have the money to keep the other players! I'm sure they make a whole bunch of money on merchandise so I think they can afford it! The players jersey's are 100$ each and this state is filled with people wearing them!
Training camp opens today and Taima is there! I can't wait to see the pictures! I follow him on Facebook and love to see all his pictures. Wish I had a wing span like that!!!
Have a great day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I think it's hot just about everywhere now. I think we are going to break the record for the most days over 90 today. I guess they have been keeping the record for about 120 years.
Seahawks training camp starts tomorrow and Taima the hawk is coming over for a meet and greet! Wish we could get up there to see him but mom has to work the whole weekend. Everyone is very excited for football to start again. It seems rather dull around here without it!
We are finishing up laundry and getting things ready for mom to go back to work tonight. It's not much fun but I do have some new toys to keep me occupied!
I hope your day is just fabulous!! Stay cool and enjoy it!

  Hi Sam... Zak here
Our flock had headed home by the time you replied to my comment, so I thought I would write you on your own page. I am actually not the only Elder at our home, because an elderly gentleman had to give us his bigger birds when he moved to a seniors home, and Mom is giving them the best care ever, as she does for all of us. As of yet, the trust between them and Mom is quite limited, and it is a day by day thing. They are in excellent health, and are eating well, and have finally started to play as birds should, and in time everything will fit into place. Mom opened another room just for these birds, so they can remain together, and not get freaked out by unknown birds. Speaking of fundraisers, I must remind Mom to post something about hers, on Marley's Menagerie's page... it officially started locally here last month but it is about time to get things really going. November comes all too fast, and we have prizes to be given out. LOL Thanks for the reminder. I am off to sleep shortly. I slept in this morning, so i got to stay up a bit later tonight. See you again Sam.

I hope you are having a fun day! I supervised the turtle tank cleaning and now I am sharing some oatmeal with mom. I have dried cranberries in mine and she has raisins in hers. I don't like raisins much.
The rest of our morning will be spent cleaning bathrooms and finishing up the laundry. Not very exciting but it has to be done. We finally got some rain back so I am enjoying that. Who knew I would end up missing rain???
I have my gifts for my elders and am going to drop them off at the Milonga page. I'll be there but will be silent cause mom will be sleeping!

  Hello Sam~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still cooler here and it feels wonderful. We are suppose to get some rain later too! It feels more like what the Northwest should feel like.
We are getting chores done today since mom did not do much this last week! It's catch up time and I have to say it's pretty boring. I want to come out of my play cage but mom has to take Jennifer to work so I have to wait until she gets back! I don't know why she doesn't trust me to be out when she is gone!hehehe
Mom tried calling dad this morning but he didn't pick up. He'll call back later. She needs to tell him that our rent is going up nearly $200. He is going to be pretty upset but everywhere in town is the same. Mom and Ian checked out all the places around here online and most are even higher. We are still going to be $50 below what new renters have to pay. They are talking about rent control in Seattle so every other city is kicking up the rents before that happens here. It's sad since they finally got the $15 minimum wage in Seattle and now everyone is going to have to pay more for rent. Things will never get better for people if they keep raising how much everything costs!
I hope your day is just perfect and that you get to do lots of fun stuff!

It's our weekend so mom took a nap when she got home this morning. I had my English Muffin in my night cage and played with a toys while she slept. She has had to go out a few times but she's home now and we are trying to figure out what to make for dinner. Anything with corn bread sounds good to me!

I hope you are having a great day! It's hot here again so I took a shower! Feeling pretty good!
Mom had chores to get done this morning. The kitchen and the bathrooms were pretty messy and no one else did any cleaning. It's usually like that unless dad is home. He helps clean.
Dad is in Maryland right now and he is picking up Monster Trucks! Isn't that fun? They have to be in Connecticut by
9 AM tomorrow so he'll be driving all night. He likes that better anyway since there is less traffic! I wouldn't mind seeing what a Monster Truck looks like but they are in trailers so dad won't even see what they look like!
I hope you have a nice peaceful Sunday just like me!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been way cooler here the past few days and we even got some rain! I was missing it believe it or not!
Last week was so busy! I did not get much time on BC hence my absence from your page!
Dad was home for a few days last week. He was still working but it was all local deliveries and he got to come home in the evenings. There always seems to be too much running around when dad is home.
I have been molting so I have been a bit cranky lately. I bit mom a couple of times but there wasn't too much blood. She understands! I'm just cranky! I am still the cute, adorable, sweet Amazon the mom knows and loves!hehehehe
Back to school is in full swing at mom's store! The kids have only been out for 2 weeks so I doubt any of them are ready to look at back to school stuff yet! Mom says they do have really cute lunch kits and backpacks this year.
I hope all is well at your nest and that you will have a wonderful day!

  Hi Sam
Haven't heard from you in ages ... hope all is well.
We have news...
Tonight my parronts accepted a bid on our house. If all goes well, we will close on Aug 17 and be in Florida in September.
Also, mom's new car will go back to dealer tomorrow. The floor carpet has been damp since day one and mold is growing. Mom & I got sick but are ok now. Dad won't let us near the car. They better fix it as it's brand new!!!!
We had a hot and humid day here. At 8pm it's 84 and the rain will be here soon. Funny thing, it's warmer here than where we will be living in FL! We have summer but, for how long??? Mom wants to go to the beach but has to take her new car back to the dealer. I will be home resting.
Hugs
Chyna

  Hello Sam~
I hope you are having a great day! I hope your 4th was tons of fun! Ian told mom the fireworks went on here until midnight. At mom's work it went on until 4am! Ian told mom he went to check on me a few times and I fluttered! That means he woke me up!! It was nice of him to check up on me.
I am sorry I didn't get many notes out yesterday! Mom drove Jennifer down to her dads house. They decided to go to Olympia first because Half Price Books was having a half off sale. Ian said that made them Quarter Price Books!hahahahaha Anyway, you don't really want the Bad Mom in a bookstore because she will spend way too much time looking at the books while her adorable Sugar is home waiting for her! Merlin was locked up in the bedroom and I bet the Bad Mom forgot about that! The Bad Mom was gone for 3 hours! A trip down to Lacey (where Jennifer's dad lives) should only take 1 hour and 10 minutes! The Bad Mom bought 9 books and a reusable shopping bag for $4.17! Great bargain but the Bad Mom should have been home in 1 hour and 10 minutes!
Now mom tells me there is a Half Price Books in Tacoma and she wants to go check that store out! Tacoma is only 15 minutes away but after this fiasco I am not sure I can trust her to come right back!
It is still a billion degrees here and today it's suppose to be a billion and one! I think I have had enough summer now thank you! There are no fans or A/C left in any store around here! Guess everyone should have believed the Weather Channel when they said this was going to happen! Glad the Bad Mom did and got us extra fans! I'm staying cool!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's perfect!

  Hi Sammy
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, USA!
We got rain overnight, and this morning it was really overcast when mom walked the dogs. She came home, made the deviled eggs, came up here to the computer, and it's now getting sunny! That's great, it looks like a pool day after all. After the pool she is going to her daughter's for a cookout, then back with us. No fireworks for us, Daisy will freak out if she's here alone and hears those loud noises. Hope you have a great day for your 4th of July plans, and that all goes well. Hugs, Willie

  Hello Sam~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! It was about a billion degrees here yesterday!!! Okay, it was 98 but it felt like a billion! We are really big babies when it comes to anything over 80! Guess it's going to be like this for the next week or so. Mom got the portable A/C out and Ian and Jennifer spent the entire evening on the sofa watching a silly show on HULU about people racing around the world. It thought it was pretty boring and nothing was blowing up either!!
When mom and Ian came up here to look for a place to live, about 20 years ago, they were having a heat wave and mom thought they were all being too dramatic. They lived in Mojave at the time and it would be 122 by 10am! Now mom understands! The cool weather was a huge selling point when they were looking for a place to move to! Dad was already working up here at the time. Just like with the snow, the heat happens up here every few years.
Mom is going to drive Jennifer down to her dad's house tomorrow so I am going to wish you a safe and Happy 4th today in case we don't have time for notes tomorrow. Mom is working through the weekend but Ian is off so he'll be here to take care of me and Merlin. Neither of us are bothered by fireworks but mom would never leave us alone anyway.
The gardeners are here now and trimming all the bushes. I guess they wanted to get an early start so they don't have to be doing it when it gets to be a billion degrees again!hehehe
Have a fabulous day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Sam~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I have had a nice day just hanging out with mom!
Well I have 5 new cousins! They are all canaries! Mom's sister took them in after their previous people decided to move to Eastern Washington and did not want to take them along. It's really not a very far move so I have no idea why they decided to let them go. There are 2 brown ones, a boy and a girl, and 3 yellow ones, 2 girls, 1 boy.
When mom's sister got them she saw that one of the little brown ones is sitting on a nest with 3 eggs! Guess that means I'll be having 3 more new cousins pretty soon. Mom's sister asked mom if she would like to have some canaries but mom doesn't know where we would put them and keep them safe from Merlin. Mom's sister has a second bedroom where the budgies and canaries live to keep them safe from her cat. I haven't seen a picture of them yet but I hope to soon.
We have had 8 days of temps over 85. We usually only have 10 for the entire year and it's only July 1st! Guess the weather channel was correct and it's going to be a hot summer here. I have been keeping cool by taking lots of showers. It helps with my molting too!
Enjoy the evening and I hope it is lots of fun!

  Hi Sammy
We had some sun today, for about 2 hours, but now it's cloudy and threatening rain again. It's in the low 70s, which is really low for this time of year.
Mom was scheduled for the RVS room again today. She cleaned and fed 23 raccoons and a skunk baby, but that was only about half the room. She left a note for her replacement person on the daily schedule to let her know what was done. With raccoons, sometimes it's hard to tell if they have been cleaned or not, especially after they are fed. They paint themselves and each other with the food, fling it around, just make a mess in general. Mom moved some of the animals around while she was cleaning, so she had to keep track of their charts. Charts are hung on the walls now, to keep them out of reach of curious raccoon hands, so it's easy to switch them around.
Mom did get to the pool for about 2 hours, but it got really dark, so she packed it in and came home to shower and blog for us.
Carol(Cori and Booboo's mom) lost her dog Cookie this morning. They made the decision to put her down because she was not eating any more. It would be nice to drop by Cori's or Booboo's page and offer condolences.
I hope you are having a good day and getting some sun and cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hello Sam~
I hope you are having a great day! It's nice here this morning and I'm snacking on some apples and almonds.
They opened up the firework stands yesterday so of course people were blowing them up last night. I think this is going to be going on for the rest of the week. You can actually buy fireworks up here year round because they sell them at the Indian Reservations. They are asking people not to blow them up this year because it's been dry and they are afraid of fires. I don't think anyone listened. Good thing for me is that they are not allowed in our complex. The noise doesn't bother me and I like the pretty colors it makes but it's nice not to have to worry about anything catching on fire.
Mom has one more night and then we have our weekend! I do not know what is planned but I hope we can watch a movie and have some popcorn! Popcorn by itself would be nice too!
Enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Sammy
It was so good to see you at the milonga last night. I really miss our daily visits.
What a fun milonga it was. The music by Sam and the Scruffy birds was perfect, the food by Lizzie was delicious, Kiddo and Taz made a wonderful party happen once again. Thanks to everybirdie who made it possible. Congratulations to the winners in the picture contest, too. It was tough voting, we voted for everyone, so probably didn't help anyone to win, but all of the pics were so creative.
It's another cool rainy day today. Mom may go for her mani/pedi or she may find something to do here, like start packing up the kitchen. You never know with her.
I hope you are having a fun day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches, as well as some fine summer weather. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Sam
It was wonderful to have you back on the BC. You and the band did a wonderful performance as usual. I'm sorry I wasn't much help tonight. This was the worst Milonga for me thanks to BC problems (and our net). It gives me white pages with ... that site (BC) is out dated! Yeah, we know!!!
Did you hear that our house is up for sale? We will move to Florida after it sells.
What a night ... BC was acting terrible and our internet crashed! I missed most of the milonga and had to go back and read the blogs.
Today was nice, sunny and low 70's ... it spiked up to 78 for a short time. Mom hopes that we might get to eat out on the patio on Sunday, that would be nice.
Thanks every bird for all the votes, it was very nice to make it to the 25K.
Well, it has started tonight ... the summer people are shooting off fireworks ... I don't like those loud bangs ... they echo thru the hills and lakes. This will go on for two weeks!
Hugs
Chyna

  Hi Sammy
Last night mom's nephew came to check the electricity in the kitchen. There is already a dedicated line for the stove, so he just needs to put in a few GFI outlets and it will be ready. Mom gave him a picture of the tile so he can match colors when he looks for flooring. To think this all started because mom wanted to replace cabinets! Now it's a whole kitchen makeover.
Update on the peregrine: He seems to favor one leg, so when the vet checks him out, hopefully he will find something that can be fixed.
It's a rainy day, with rain predicted for the next several days, so no pool or outdoor work will happen. Mom and the dogs got soaked on their shortened walk this morning.
We are looking forward to the milonga tonight, it should be a grand time at the Renaissance Faire! Our flock is ready to see what they can do tonight. Hope to see you there! Hugs, Willie

  Hello Sam~
I hope you had a great day. We had a quiet kind of day. Mom had some running around to do and then we had to get dad ready to go back out on the road. Mom grabbed all his stuff and put it on the dining room table so he wouldn't forget anything.
Once again we would like to thank every bird for their kind notes! We hope we can get more birdsonal notes done soon.
Mom went by and got Mandy's paw print from the vet today. It's just beautiful. She is going to get a shadow box and put it in there. That should keep it safe.
Mom is doing some rearranging also. We are just trying to keep busy and find our new normal.
Merlin has decided to be my best friend now. None of us realized how much he would miss Mandy. He has been trying to sleep by my play cage but I got down to the bottom and tried to bite him! He gets locked in the bedroom when mom leaves the house because she doesn't trust him or me!hehehehe
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Sam~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! As some of you know, we lost Mandy yesterday. It's been so hard not having her here. She wasn't there to get me out of my night cage and I had no one to share my toast with.
She was ready to go. Mom never understood that until yesterday. When mom got home Merlin was curled up next to her with his head on her shoulder. Mandy had quit eating on Sunday and when mom sat down next to her yesterday morning she knew it was time. It was very peaceful and the vets office were so kind. They did a paw print on a clay heart for us as a memorial.
We are working on a new normal around here. It's still seems so strange not to see her on her blanket in front of my play cage.
Thank you all for your kind notes. We appreciate it so very much.
Enjoy the day!

  Hi Sammy
I really miss you!
Thanks to Aunt Rose for our beach pics in our galleries.
Our hearts are with Sugar and her family today.
It has been a few hectic days for mom, but all fun, for sure. Sunday after the pool, she went with family to see Jurassic World in extreme 3D with surround sound. It made mom jump a couple of times. The science was junk, but the story sure was exciting! She loved the raptors. The only weird thing was the heroine running in the jungle with heels. They went out to dinner after, and when they got in the car, there was a dinosaur shaped cloud overhead!
Yesterday after the wildlife center and the pool, mom texted Aunt Gin and told her Spy was playing locally. Aunt Gin finally got her birthday dinner and movie! She picked mom up after work, they went to Red Robin to eat, then saw the movie. It was really good; a lot of foul language, but that seems to be the norm lately.
Today it looks like rain, maybe thunderstorms, so the pool is out. Mom did get the fountain cleaned this morning, finally. The water was running so slow there were mosquito larvae in it. They are not there any more! To make sure they don't come back, mom slipped a ring of bacillus thuringensis into the water. It's not toxic to wildlife, but destroys mosquito larvae and eggs.
Mom's nephew called and is coming over on Friday to measure for the tile, the floor, and see where the outlets are in the kitchen so he can replace them with GFI ones. Guess we're starting the kitchen!
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of summer cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.
