It's a good day for changin' to 11 yarrs old, me hearties! For comin' by to say "Happy Hatchday" I have some limericks that I've brought back from every corner of the world. May they bring a smile to yer beak today!! Thanky fer comin' by me page!

Some pirates have parrots for pets,
Some monkeys, others frisky fer-rets!
But as for me crew,
Only an elephant will do . . .
He's huge but he never forgets!

When the crocodile called on James Hook,
The pirate those waters forsook.
With the croc down a peg
A white whale ate his leg.
And he said, “Why, I’m in the wrong book!”

A Captain O'Leary's old parrot
Was a foul mouthed bugger, I swear it,
washed his mouth out with soap
tied him up with a rope
Nothing worked, so we just grin and bear it!

There once was a sailor named Pete
Who would grin both in ease and defeat
It was somewhat beguiling
That he never stopped smiling
Even when his last rites were complete!

A Pirate's old parrot called Paul
got a gift - an inflatable doll;
when he gave it a kiss
it just gave him a hiss
and then whistled and flew down the hall

Here's to all ye good parronts out there! Lift ye tankards, lads & lasses, it's time to empty yer good glasses! Arrr...

  This Memorial Day
let's remember all of those who served. We thank you.

Well, it is supposed to hit 76 here today, although not until about 1PM which is when I will get my sunbath.
Then the temps will be climbing fast until by Friday we will be in the 90s. That means morning sunbaths, which is when I start giving Mom a hard time about getting into the carrier again. Since she now has worked out several methods for getting me in there, I suppose my tricky ways won't be working so well.

Becky emailed Mom last night, and Gold's decided to waive her 2 weeks notice and let her go. She wasn't surprised, because they don't want her to take her clients with her. They don't know she is going private part time to supplement her Physical Therapy job, but they didn't want to take any chances. Since she already set things up with the clients she wants to keep, like Mom, too bad for them. Mom still has 5 sessions left, but Becky has talked to Talyah about Mom's issues so things will work out just fine with her for those sessions.

Meanwhile as soon as Mom is done blogging we will share either a roast beef sandwich or more enchilada pie for lunch then go outside. Sounds like a fine afternoon to me.

Today is the last day to enter the Prom Pic Contest, so if you want in on the Prom Royal Court you had better get your pic ready to go.

P.S. The band looks greyt, and we will definitely post them for the milonga. Mom already grabbed the pic from your gallery and it is waiting on our desktop with the other pics to go up after the voting is done. Thanks!!

  Hi SamIAm
Greyt pics of you and Miranda. I like the one of you dancing also, and I will put that up on the milonga page after the contest is over. The bad budgies have one as a couple that will go up then also.

Well, I may or may not get outside for a sunbath today. It is only 69 degrees out there right now, with a forecast high of 71. Mom thinks it might be warm enough around 2PM, but she just checked and it isn't there now.

Meanwhile the entire house smells so good with all the aromas from Dad's enchilada pie. And it hasn't even gone into the oven yet! Dad is making two of them, but he is baking one after the other because our oven is big enough to do them at the same time. That means the house will smell wonderful for a very long time. And that is definitely a good thing.

  Hello Sam~
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!

  Hello Sam~
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!
Enjoy the day!

  Hello Sam~
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 Sam~
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!!
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's just spectacular!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Another pretty sunny one here!
I think they have finished with the road construction! YAY! It took 2 weeks but everything has been paved now. They still have to put the barriers back into the center and paint the stripes but I'm sure that will not be as loud as a steam roller! They had most of the road shut down last night so mom had to cut through the markets parking lot to get home!
Mom loved Captain America Civil War. Captain America has always been moms favorite. She admire the way he does the right thing even if it's not the easiest or popular thing. He is an honorable character!
They did not get back until Midnight. McKenzie did great in her crate even though she got put in there 2 hours early. Mom got us up when she got home and took McKenzie for a nice walk. Then she made us a waffle! We had a Midnight Waffle Party!! We only stayed up for half an hour and then we all went back to bed. It was fun but since I'm a bit sleepy today, I don't think we will be doing it much!
Mom has to go to PetCo today to get McKenzie her Science Diet and some new toys! That puppy goes through toys almost as fast as I do! I'm impressed!
Enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

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

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

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

  Hi again Mr Sam Hall-love from your pal Ms LaLo
...I don't get around as much as I once did, but dad is getting stronger, slowly but surely, and I will be back again! Looks like we made it to another Friday, our long lonely week end has started but we shall survive it, just like all like all the rest! Yesterday we got two beautiful phone calls, one from our beloved aunt Eileen and Sugar, and one from sweet aunt Theresa G, Puffin, and Ceasaur, those two ladies can turn darkness into daylight, and that's exactly what they did! Of course there were many more, but none can compare to them! TGIF my dear friends, and give our love to all in your happy little home, see ya all again tomorrow...

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

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

We are cooking some sketti right now and I can't wait! Mom got a huge tub of the organic salad greens so maybe I'll have a few of those too.
Not much else going on since it's Sunday. McKenzie saw a new dog moving into the apartment above the office building and she keeps wanting to go out to see if she can meet him! No luck yet but she did get to see her poodle friends Molly and Jack! She is becoming a social butterfly!hahahahaha She is still very submissive with any other dog even the poodles. Maybe this is just the way she is which is not a bad thing! Rather have her sweet than trying to run after every dog she sees!

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

  Morning my dear Sam-love from Ms LaLo
...thank you so much for the sweet and caring words you wrote to my very sick daddy. it was greatly appreciated A note from my daddy,...I am trying so hard to respond to better health, but so far I have made very little progress, I am still very weak and can only stand up for very short periods of time for fear of falling again! I am still not sure what caused my internal poisoning, but it was attacking my healthy organs and making my muscles go away! I shall keep working hard to get back to normal, but think I have forgotten what exactly that is! Enjoy your Sunday and be sure to love each other, life is so precious, but oh so short! Give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow dear hearts...

Forever love from dad Dallas, Jenny, and Ms LaLo

PS~ We have so many thank you notes to write for all the beautiful flowers and heart soothing get well cards, and phone calls, but we will continue to chip away at them...

  Hi Sam
CRAZY WEATHER!!! We were under winter advisory last night! We were supposed to get 2-4 inches overnight, it ended up warming up slightly overnight, so we ended up with a layer of ice in addition to 2 inches of snow! It only went to 36°for the high today and the low will be 22°. The average temps should be 58°/39°! Mom thinks that we had spring in November & December and now we are having winter! It has snowed more since the first day of spring than it did all winter!

Mom has gotten some much needed rest the past 2 days and nights! The injections have helped so much! Mom was never able to sleep more than 2-3 hrs at a time because pain would wake her. But the last 2 nights she slept 6 whole hrs in a row both nights! She's so happy & rested! Mom can't remember the name of the medication that her Dr injected, it's not actually cortisone, it can be used more frequently. She'll write down the name of it when she goes back to her pain Dr at the end of the month.

I hope your day was a good one!
Love & a vote

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

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

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

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

I didn't get too many notes done yesterday. Mom had to go out and was gone longer than she had planned. By the time she got home it was time for bed and dad had already taken over the computer anyway!
Gardeners are here this morning and out mowing. It is keeping McKenzie occupied for a little while at least.
She is shedding and mom has been trying to keep her brushed up. It's difficult because McKenzie still thinks brushing her hair is a game! Mom tried it out on the balcony and there were some tufts of fur left out there. A sparrow came by and collected them! I guess McKenzie's fur is going to be part of their nest! Pretty cool!!
Not much planned for today. Mom does have to go to the market since dad is home and seems to be eating everything!hahahahahah Good thing I have my mini pancakes stashed because he ate all the bread yesterday so not toast for me this morning! Pancakes are just as good!!
Still keeping the skin bro in our prayers. Hope he is on the mend and feeling well!
Enjoy they day and I hope it's spectacular!

  Part 1
The last day at the Castle has been a bitter sweet one for Queen Laka Aolani.

She wishes to thank everyone for their love and support for her during her time in the Castle.

I hope you all had as much fun as I did. Now to continue on with the fun, we have till midnight so let’s do this!!

Laka, Cookie, Pearl and Silver, Tweety and BooBoo are in the front cars of the roller coaster. Mrs BB and Kaji and Kiddo, SweetPepper, Kacey and Mikey and Gus are in the back car. As the coaster descends down Laka shouts do the “Flitzer” Wings up!!! Everyone puts their wings up and screams as the coaster goes down hill very very fast….. Next thing you know BooBoo screams extra loud as she is ejected from her seat as the seat belt wasn’t tight enough and when the wind caught her she went bye bye! Heeeeeelllppppp!!!! Laka tries to grab her but wasn’t fast enough, then Mrs BB stands up with her feet under the dash to secure herself she grabs BooBoo’s feet and yanks her down in the cart next to her. Wheeew!! That was a close one!!! Yay!!! Everyone shouts good catch BB!!!!

BooBoo gets outta the cart and says that was fun, can we do it again?? Laka says let’s play some games first. How about the ring toss? Try to toss the plastic ring on the tops of the coke bottles and if you catch the ones with the feather on top your prize is supersized. how cool is that?

Sugar and Chyna look very pretty on the horsie carousel going up and down up and down as they wave to everyone as they go around and around and around.

Bub and Mrs BB try their luck at the pop the balloon with the darts game and one dart ended up stabbing Raffikki in the tail feathers. Oooops!! Sorry buddy!! Raffikki gives the girls the “eye”……

  Part 2
Ginger, Gus, Hulk and Polly try their wings at the dime toss. Then Cookie steps in front of them and throws a bunch of dimes on the table and wins. Everyone looks at him and he says well, that’s how you do it!! Their eyebrows go up and Polly asks the ref, is that fair??? He says technically no, but I’ll let him have one win. Then everyone searches their pockets for more dimes to toss.

Willie, Peppino and Kaji try their wings at the tick tack toss games. Peppino says it’s not as easy as it looks from here as he stands on a tree stump to be the same height as the other big boys.

Pearl and Silver, Gus and Laka and Cookie go for a ride at the Tilt-A-Whirl then they see Mrs BB on the other cart with SamIam and Raffikki and they are zippying along very fast and Cookie tries to make their cart swirl more but it seems stuck as they don’t have the weight like the others. Cookie says I know, let’s go on the mixer, that way we don’t hafta worry about the weight thingy. Okay so the others jump in the mixer and this one goes really fast and makes every birdie dizzy when they come off the ride. Laka wobbling says I think I’m done with the rides, thank God I didn’t eat much. Then she plops down on the bench swing and rests. Boy that ride sure takes a lot out of ya!

Tonight the fireworks will go off at 8 pm and Queen Laka has asked the guards to set up the hammocks and bench swings around the bonfire for a farewell party. It’s gonna be great a great party!

We’ll have bar-b-q on a stick with grilled pineapple, very very yummy indeed! Also some Okinawan donuts called andagi (un-dah-gi) or deep fried donuts very yummy and beak size too.

We’ll roast marshmallows and watch the fireworks from above and after that roast more food and maybe cook some s’mores on the grill along with the pineapple.

BooBoo tries a s’mores pineapple sandwich and asks anyone who wants to try one? Any takers? Heheheheheee

  Part 3
Laka stands up after the fireworks and says a little speech. I want to thank you all for coming and for all the love and support for me during my rein as Queen. I would also like to take this time to do a mass prayer for Papa Chuck and Momma Teri and Art. Lord we pray that you heal them and we all send them blessing and healings from up above. I pray that they can get back to their normal selves real soon as everyone misses them very very much. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.

Mahalo Nui Loa everyone, I love you all so very much and then she blows everyone sweet kisses in the wind.

Okay now let’s boogie to some music!!! Shake your tail feathers!!! The chefs double as a DJ too. It’s kinda funny to see guys with the chef’s hat on behind the music table spinning records and shakin’ that thing!

Everyone parties up and has lots to eat by the bonfire. Pookie says to Dixie I’m gonna miss this but I’ll be glad when were back home too. Dixie says yeah I know what you mean. But we sure had a great time huh buddy?? Yup and they clink glasses and toast to the Queen.

Here’s a vote for you and Mahalo for your friendship, may we always be good friends cause tonight is kinda special.

I love you all!!

Your Queen Laka Aolani

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

  Hi Sam
HAPPY EASTER!
I hope you and your family had a wonderful Easter my dear friend!

Mom had a crazy busy day yesterday and wasn't able to get on BC at all! She ended up watching Trent, the 6yr old boy she used to watch full time. We had him from 9:30am until 6:30pm. Mom planned on coloring her feathers but there was a water main break and the water was off most of the day. Mom eventually colored her feathers but had to wait until Trent left. She really had to rush around because she had to be at the church by 8pm. I sissy Amanda was being confirmed in the church her hubby and kiddos belong to. The service was from 8-11pm. It was almost midnight when mom got home! Mom had turned out the lights and set the sleep timer on the TV. When it went off at 9pm, I climbed into my acrylic ring that is my roost and took a nap until mom came home. We cuddled & played for a half hour then I wanted to go night-night. Mom left for an early Easter dinner with the family and then she'll be home with me the rest of the day!

I hope you had a wonderful Easter!
Love & a vote
From your friend

  Hello Sam~
I hope you are having a wonderful Easter Sunday! McKenzie and I shared a blueberry muffin for breakfast and it was yummy. We don't really celebrate Easter around here since mom always has to work and Ian is still at work. Maybe we will do something when mom is off this week. She did get a couple of vegan chocolate bars and will share them with dad, Ian and Jennifer. I think the muffin was a much better idea!
Jennifer just got back from her sisters house. She went down on Friday for a birthday party for her brother in law. He and Ian share a birthday. They announced the sex of the new baby and Maddie is getting a little sister!! I think Maddie is very excited. I know I can't wait to meet her. They don't have a name picked out yet but I'm sure it will be great.
We talked to Uncle Chuck a while ago and he is doing okay. There is a complete update on from RaneBeau on the calendar page. Jenny and Lalo have gone over to visit with Aunt Denise and the flock which is just wonderful. I know Uncle Chuck feels much better knowing that they are safe and have lots of company.
So it sounds like the wife is pretty useless when it comes to hospitals. Mom knows lots of people like that. She needs to suck it up and be there for your skin bro. Your mom is a real hero to help him out like that. I wonder if they could get him a monitor to sleep with so that if he quits breathing an alarm would go off. Ian had one when he was a baby.
Enjoy your day and I hope it's a very special Easter you and your mom!

  Hey Sam!
Happy Easter and welcome to the Castles Easter egg hunt, egg fight and Easter buffet all in one day. ;)

Queen Laka greets everyone of her guests that walk thru the door. She has baskets to give everyone and for them to put the Easter eggs that they find on the grounds in their basket. Everyone gets a basket and a map of the area that the eggs are hidden. No surprises on this Easter egg hunt.

Every birdie has a ball searching for them 100 Easter eggs. Hopefully everyone can find them all as no one wants to smell something in the bushes a month later. If you know what I mean. :)

Every birdie is having a ball searching for the colorfully decorated eggs that a lot of birdies helped make. Now Pear and Silver asks about the egg fight. She demonstrates by having those two get out an egg that they found and lightly bang eggs together.

First Pearl goes first and hits Silvers egg on the big end and does some damage, yay!! Then Silver frowns and then hits Pearls egg head on and both eggs crack!!

They both look at Laka and she says well, it was a good egg fight! ;)

They each get out another egg and see who's egg is the strongest. Ooh this is fun!!! Soon it catches on and everyone challenges everyone else in their egg fight quest.

The buffet is out in the middle of the courtyard so that everyone can eat and search at the same time. There's omelettes wrapped in a pita with cheese and meats or veggies. This hand held food is great to eat and hunt for eggs at the same time. Then there's eggs Benedict and egg soufflés and egg crepes station where the chefs will put what ever you want in it. There's also corn dogs on a stick, another favorite to eat and hunt. There's carrot cake for dessert and a soft swirl ice cream dispenser.

Then the Easter bunny makes a special appearance by hopping onto the courtyard and greeting every birdie. Yay!!!!

For those eggs that didn't survive the egg fight you can put them in the big green pot for recycling as they will be shelled and cleaned and turned into egg salad sandwiches for tomorrow's lunch.

Queen Laka enjoys watching every birdie hunt and eat at the Easter egg hunt this year.

Thank you for coming and don't forget your goodie bag before you leave as it contains great stuff of today's events. There's plastic eggs with chocolate eggs in there and some have stickers, puffy stickers and rub on tattoos.

Also a comical map of where all the eggs were placed. Ahhh some say I never thought to look there!!

Happy Easter everyone!!! Thank you for coming by and I hope you all had a great time.

Stay as long as you want, as my Castle is your Castle. :)

Queen Laka gives everyone a big hug and kiss before turning in.

Here's a Easter Sunday vote for you.

Love,

Your Queen Laka

  Hi Sam!
Queen Laka thanks them for the ice packs but she still has a lump on one side of her pretty head. :(

Angel Pookie says she needs to rest and she'll be okay tomorrow for the Easter egg hunt tomorrow. Angel Pookie and Angel Sallykins will be hiding the eggs tonight for tomorrow's egg hunt around the Castle grounds.

I want to thank everyone for helping with the decorating of all the Easter eggs. It will surely brighten up every birdie face tomorrow. :)

There's a lot of eggs to find so come early and then stay for the Easter bunny buffet. :)

There will be eggs galore. Eggs Benedict and mini egg salad sandwiches with bacon in them and eggs flambé too. There's also gonna be an egg fight after all the eggs are found to see which egg is the strongest. That's always a fun thing to play. Mom and her brothers used to play that when they were young and always had a good time. :)

Queen Laka will also be going to the pie shop to celebrate with the shelter birds and to also bring them more eggs. :)

Hope to see you all at the festivities tomorrow!

Here's a vote for you. :)

Love,

Queen Laka

  Hi Sam
It sure was a greyt Milonga tonight. I enjoyed the songs you had me sing. As you know, Danny Boy is a big favorite of mine. I think the band was in greyt form tonight. I did get kicked off 3 times tonight so, I guess that wasn't bad.
Hope all is well at your nest. We are getting ready for skinsis's wedding in June in Utah. Mom is thrilled as she has her MOB dress and shoes.
Another beautiful (sunny and 87) day here. We are getting ready for Easter and company for dinner. I hope the bunny leaves me something.
Wishing all our friends a Happy Easter.
Hugs
Chyna

  Hello Sam~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Uncle Chuck is in the hospital. Mom was worried since we could not contact him and she called Aunt Denise this morning. Aunt Denise called emergency services out there and found out he had been taken to the hospital.
The neighbors are taking care of Jenny and the flock and Aunt Denise will be going by tonight to check on them. I will let every bird know what is going on when I know.
Mom spoke with him for a little bit this morning and he was up and ready to have lunch. He seems a bit confused so we don't really know what is going on at this point but he is being well cared for!
Hope you will say a prayer that he is home with Jenny and the flock soon!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! We did some chores and then mom had to run over to the market to pick up a few things. Dad is making home made pizza tonight. It's Ian's birthday and they both love that pizza. I'll be getting a nice piece of crust!
Nothing else interesting going on here. It's been a mostly quite day and that is just fine!
Hope your evening is just wonderful!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I hope you have a fabulous day!
It is sunny and pretty up here. We are starting out at 30 but will end up near 60. Spring!!
Mom got the filters for the vacuum dried out and put back in so I know she'll be using that evil machine today! McKenzie is shedding and it's awful! Mom has been brushing her but she thinks it's a game so it's slow going. There are still clumps of fur all over! Mom sweeps them up before she vacuums. She has to sweep up all the treats I threw out of the cage for the puppy too! I'm just doing my part with the puppy duty!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's just spectacular!

I hope you had a wonderful day! Mom had lots of things she wanted to get done today but me, Merlin and McKenzie just wanted her to pay attention to us! She was trying to clean the brushes on the Bissell and I was screaming! McKenzie wanted to help her so mom had to get her to play with some toys. Merlin just wanted to sit on moms lap! I kept screaming at the others for them to leave mom alone! I don't think mom understood how I was trying to help her!hehehehehe

  Forever love to Sam & aunt Robin-Ms Lady Love Lee
Looks like the deep South sent us some of their rain, but that's okay, our area needs more to get our water tables higher for our farmers! We are into our time change and dad does not like it, as if anybody cares what he thinks! We will all get used to it soon enough, but we still do not have to like it! Our machine is slow and erratic again today, but at least it is working part-time, which is much better than nothing at all! Happy Sunday dear hearts, we hope you all have a grand day, give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny, Christy, LaLo, Ziggy, & our daddy
