  Hi Sammy
Not much new here, mom did get to the pool yesterday and it turned into a gorgeous day by noon. Today looks good, too. Later she will go to dinner with her sister, then come home and clean cages for us. Tomorrow morning is her second follow up appointment with the eye doc, then back to the center for her shift.
We are all hoping to see you back soon and hope mom is feeling better too. We posted a note on the calendar page, hope it brings mom lots of prayers and good wishes.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of sunshine and scritchies. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Sammy
Today is dark and gloomy, and it was pouring rain when mom walked the girls this morning. Now it seems to be rain free, but who knows how long that will last? So, it must mean it's a laundry catch up day for us here. So many things to wash, and all those trips up and down the stairs will provide good exercise for mom today. We are keeping Kiddo's mom and dad in our prayers, as well as Sweetpepper's Grandpa. We hope all goes well for each of them and they all heal successfully.

  Hello There Mr. Sam-I-Am
How goes it with you these days? You were such a sweetie, dropping by my page awhile back and inquiring of my health and happiness. Both are in fine shape, thank you very much, although I'd be happier if my flight feathers were still in tact and I was able to wing my way to wherever I desired to be. That privilege was revoked back in the early spring, not only to keep me from sailing out some open door, but to end my forays onto the kitchen counter, I'm sure. In my dream house I'm going to have a kitchen all my own with no rules about exploring the counters. Wouldn't that be grand!

I so hope your summer's been a pleasant one and that life has continued to offer you all sorts of interesting moments. Thank you for coming by my very neglected page. As always, you're a true sweetheart.

Adoringly,
K *v*

Come visit me, Kelly.

  Day 19--The Gathering at the River
Yeehaaaaw; Chuey here with a Cattle Drive update. We've been watchin' some would be rustlers whilst the herd was running full out towards the Red River. Trustin' that my wranglers had everything under their control I sat a while and simply watch and listen. The herd slows as it nears the water, as the foamy wet horses breath deeply catchin' a breath after miles of gallopin' all out to keep up with them dawgies.
There's many a peril on the long western trails, from snakes to rustlers, but none is as deadly as the Red River Crossing. Historian Andy Adams described Doan's Crossing:
"Red River, on the northern border of Texas, was a terror to trail drivers. The majestic grandeur of the river, with its red bluff banks, the sediment of its red waters marking the timber along its course, while the driftwood, lodged in trees and high on the banks, indicated what might be expected when she became sportive or angry. The crossing had been in use only a year or two when we forded, yet five graves, one of which was less than ten days made, attested her disregard for human life. It can safely be asserted that at this and lower trail crossings on Red River, the lives of more trail men were lost by drowning than on all other rivers together. Doan was the last town before entering Indian Territory and was the last spot where US inspectors were stationed to inspect herd brands before allowing them to enter Oklahoma.
"The thundering of the herd could be herad clear to Doan and beyond, the dust cloud arriving before the thristin' herd. I figured I'd better get moseyin' along, and keep check on the rustlers later, as the wranglers might be needing me, and the birds to get them back from the water before they drank themselves to death. We creep out real quiet-like and urged our mounts into a gallop and caught up just shy of Doan.
" Boss, what's up with the rustlers?" Sky asked riding fast to catch up
"They ain't movin no where fast, so we left'em settin' and joined back up to bring these dust-bags under control again." Chuey wiped sweat from her forehead with her bandanna.
" Pookie and Snowy have rode up front to cut them back before they hit the water full-out" Cookie yells as he races past on Thunderbolt. " Spot and Chipper are guarding the remuda, to try to keep the horses in check."
The sign for Doan's store whipped pasta s the herd started to pull to a stop atthe river edge, heads down, gulpin' water up like a sponge. " Sugar, Sweetie! Cut them two cows back before they drop dead from over drinkin"" Panther yelled trying to get a red checked bull back into the herd without much success. As the dust began to settle, we could see that the herd had spread out over a mile of river bank in both directions. It would take a lot of skill, energy, and work to gather them back into a herd. Quick horse changing, with Peppino and BonBon saddling and ropin our mounts expertly to keep us movin them Long horned devils back in place.

  Hi Sammy
Not much going on here, Mom saw a movie last night called the 100 Foot Journey, starring Helen Mirren. It was a really good movie, but she and Gin saw it at 6:30, before dinner, and it made them both really hungry. It was all about 2 restaurants across the street from each other! Anyway, after the movie, they went to the Thai restaurant to eat dinner, which was delightful. That was Ginny's birthday gift--mom was teasing her because her birthday was at the beginning of June, so mom said she could finally end the celebration! Today looks like a pool day, so we won't have mom this afternoon, but once she gets home, she's ours and we might even get outside for awhile. I hope you are having a good day with lots of cuddles and good weather. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Sammy
This is the last week for the pool to be open its regular hours. Next week all the guards have to go back to school, so the pool won't open until 3:30.
Today when mom went to the center, she had to work the reception desk because of the surgery. She prefers not to get anything near her eyes yet, until at least the second follow up visit to the eye doc this coming Friday. She also folded lots of towels and blankets, and did some of the dishes until her shift was up. It's more fun working with the animals, but every little bit helps up there.
Tonight mom is going to see a movie (100 step journey, maybe?) and have dinner with Aunt Ginny. This is a very late birthday gift for Gin, her birthday is in June. She just couldn't pick a movie til now. Anyway that's mom's plan for the evening, but we'll be in lockdown. I hope you are having a good day today, seeing some beautiful summer weather where you are, and getting scritches and cuddles. Hugs, Willie

  Day 18--Red River's calling
Phew what a long night. Keepin' watch on them Rustlers,and holdin' the herd close is a job, especially when they smell water. These Long-horned varmints can smell water for miles and when they do, it's a job to keep them from stampeding. With the comin' of mornin' we are still hankered down watching them, keepin' the rustlers under close eye.
Leaving the herd under the care of my trusty cow-hands, they're up and movin by first light. We're headin' to Doan today,at the Texas-Oklahoma line and our first difficult river crossing. Corwin Doan settled at the crossing back in 1878 and built his homestead there in 1881. Doan had a large stock of goos to supply the cowboys who annually drove cattle along the Western Trail. The village of "Doan't Crossing" had 14 or more buildings. Doan, his wife Liddie (1850-1905), and their 3 children entertained people from all walks of life - English lords to Indians - in theirs adobe house. In fact it is estimated more then seven million head of cattle and horses made this difficult crossing between 1876 and 1893.
"You all better head back to the herd," Chuey instructed, " Kiddo, Jenny-Lynn, TiPaul and Cori, you stay hankered down here and keep watch."
"Ok Boss" Boo Boo exclaimed sneakin' back all quiet like to where our horses have been ground hitched.( reins left hanging from the bit, used when horses might be needed to make a quick escape). The others rode back to the south of where the rustlers where hidden out to pervent their horses getting wind of them and tippin' them off.
"I'm goin' sneak up closer to get a better look, see if I ain't able to hear what they have up their sleeve." Chuey crouched down low and worked her way silently towards boulders not more then 50 yards from where the rustlers sat drinkin; their coffee and eattin' grub.
Sugar, Polly, Zippy, Moggie and Susan where riding point today, but the herd was itchin to run from the get-go. They kept turnin' the anxious cows back into the herd. The whole mass of cattle began to trot as they caught wind of the river ahead. Cinn-A-Bun, and Chyna rode from the drag to talk to the Point riders.
"We might as well give'em head and let'em run, we are can't keep them in and the out-riders are spending their time cutting strays back in. If we don't they're goin' a break anyways and we'll be chasing them to the Red anyways."
"You're right, tell the others to pull out a ways and give them their head." Sugar told them
Cinn-A-Bun went to the south side and Chyna took up the north and rode by to tell the others to pull a ways off and let'em run. The herd picked up it's pace as the smell of water grew stronger in their nostrils. Suddenly the lead cow took off on the run, with the others moving like a massive dusty wave over the ground. The sound of pounding hooves would be heard clear to Doan and beyond.
We're in for a fix of troubles now I'd say, sures hope they can get the herd back from the water in time.

  Hi Sammy
Today is one of those weird Pittsburgh weather days. It was raining when mom walked the dogs this morning, but not raining hard. Then it cleared up momentarily, now it's back to cloudy and kind of dark again. The weather guessers are saying a slight chance of thunderstorms, but really? They don't know, we suspect.
If it's nice, mom will head to the pool for awhile, but if it's not, she will catch up on laundry again. She didn't get our cages wiped off the other night, because she was so groggy from the surgery, so maybe she'll get that done today as well. We will get lots of mom time today, either way. Hope your day is filled with sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Willie

  Day 17--Keepin' watch on the Rustlers
WHOA there Cutter, we have to stop and post our daily Cattle Drive update. I must say, driven cattle ain't for the weak or faint of heart. It takes a real Bird to sit that saddle 12-14 hours a day, 6 to 7 days of the week. Queen Zeena sent word, that we are headin' for another rain shower before we make Doan, on the Red River. That ain't good news, ain't good at all. I be tellin' why.
" Kiddo and Finnegan comes barrelin' in from the hill country with word that we goin' be havin' company right soon. Jenny-Lynn and her side-kick Sweetie are keepin' watch from a safe distance, keepin' tabs so to speak on them rustler-type birds. The others have taken cover in the hills surrounding their news camp, watching, waiting least they make the decision to try to run off some of our herd during the night-watch."
"Boss, what we goin' do bout them rustlers?" TiPaul asks pushing his hat back on his head.
"Don't rightly know. They ain't done anything yet so we best be watching them, and tendin' to our own business along the trail." Chuey says before slapping Cutter on the flanks to get him off in a quick run.
"Cori, Boo Boo and Peppino, come along with me. We're gonna go take us a better look at these rustlers." Chuey finishes as she dashes past at a fast trot.
"Silver, you and Raffi, take first watch. Keep a good eye on the back of the herd. We gotta keep 'em tight tonight. No strayin'" Chuey stops for a moment then moves on.
Dixie, Jedi, and Snowflake see Chuey and the others comin' from a distance, and ride out to meet them. They exchange a few words before turning their horses in the detection that Finnegan said he saw the riders bedded down. In camp Sugar, Kacey, Sweetpepper and Celine saddle up their night horses preparing to start their shift as night-hawks. Swinging up into the saddle Sweetpepper takes one last parting look at the warm fire burning n the camp before she and Sugar begin their watch. The four riders head in the direction of the herd, listening all the while for any unusual happens in the far distant hills.
" I sure hope there ain't no troubles tonight" Lizzie says to Kaji and Falco sitting by the fire. " we been lucky so far to have not encountered any troublin' situations."
"we're ready for them, if those rustlers wanta try taken our herd" Angel says out loud,
"We're a bad group to tangle with." Chipper adds "Cydney, why don't ya come sit for a spell, no sense in wearin' your legs out."
The Scouts, with Chuey and the others ride down-wind of the hidden camp so as not to alert the horses to their presence. They stop at a safe distance and ground-tie their horse, as they creep closer for a better look."
" home, home on the range, where a cow-bird is watchful all day, lest he falls asleep while countin' his sheep, and a rustler runs off with his herd."

  Hi Sammy
Mom does use goggles when she swims indoors. She has 2 pairs of them. She isn't allowed to use them right now, though, because they put some pressure with the suction on the eyes. Thanks for asking. Chyna just told us she should use those yellow glasses for the computer until the glare quits bothering her, too. We never thought of using them, so it was a great idea!
It's only 2 weeks away,and we're getting excited to see the county fair milonga is almost here! We are all involved. Falco will be manning a booth for ring toss, come by and try your luck. I will be riding Piglet in the races, and Peppino is gonna try to eat as many pies as he possibly can.
Meanwhile, at home, mom got her nails done today, then went to the pool. We were in lockdown all day long. Now she's home, though, and she's ours for the rest of the day. Her drops are going well, she feels good, and can't wait to get glasses that will work in about 5 weeks.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of love. Hugs, Willie

  Day 16--The Chuck Wagon part two
Well howdy to all you cow-birds out in the wild west on the cattle drive. I hope you all had a good nights rest, cause am supectin' that we are in for some troubles come sunshine tomorrow. The scouts have been trailing some shady characters up in the hills, but somehow they seem to be one step ahead of us. Though I'm pretty certain, that when Jenny-Lynn, Kiddo and the other scouts find 'em they'll be wishin' they'd stayed clear of us.
With our bellies full of some more of Lizzie's greyt cookin' we be set to move the herd on the trail towards the Red River Crossin nearby to Doan. I do think it's important that we all know how important having Lizzie, Kaji and Mikey drivin' the "Dragon Wagon" Chuck-wagon is. So, without any further jawin' from me we'll finish our history lesson.

The Chuck wagon is equipped with the wide array of supplies needed to make the journey. Besides food, the supplies would include Farrier and Blacksmith tools for horseshoeing or making repairs to the wagon and horse tack. Sewing needles for mending clothing or saddles, first aid and alcohol tonics used for medicinal purposes. Bedrolls and rain slickers for the working cow hands along with the crew’s personal items. One side would be equipped with a large wooden water barrel to carry a two day supply for the working crew. The other side often had a tool box, as well a smaller attached wooden box in front called the jockey box. Additionally, the wagon would have a canvas cover called a Bonnet that had been treated in linseed oil to repel rain keeping items in the wagon dry. To allow headroom in the wagon, bows where added raising the canvas and providing securing points.
The chuck wagon would be managed by the cook . He performed all the needs for the camp sites along the cattle drives. He would be second in charge of the outfit to the trail boss. Due to his importance and position, the cook received pay around $45 per month while the wranglers and cow punchers received $25 to 30 dollars each month on a trail drive. The Cook also was expected to act as Barber, Banker, Doctor, Dentist, letter writer and sometimes referee in camp should tensions flair amongst the hired hands. His normal day started hours before others. Getting up around three in the morning he started by grinding roasted coffee.
Today, the Chuck Wagon so historically represents the era of the trail drives and the Cowboys whom worked the cattle that it was Honored as the Texas State Vehicle and continues operations on many ranches nearly 150 years after its invention. It is no surprise to view a chuck wagon and immediately think of those nearly forgotten trails and the cowboys who drove over 10 million head of cattle to market. Trails of majestic beauty where you can nearly hear the wind echo a ringing camp bell and the Cook calling out, “Come and get it. Get it while its hot”.

  Day 15--The Chuck Wagon part one
Howdy all, Chuey here with a TGIF Cattle Drive Post for you all. I think it is important that we all learn some history about one of the most important aspects of any cattle drive. THE CHUCK WAGON. Now, any cow-birdie worth it's weight in gold, loves to eat. We have been well fed by our wonderful cook Lizzie, and her two helpers Kaji and Mikey. They have been dishin' out some mighty tasty vittles.
There is a majestic beauty viewing over the massive grazing lands that run from Texas north through the Dakotas reaching into Canada. These plains expanded westward into Colorado meeting the rocky mountains and northwest to the Cascade Mountain Range. Scenic hills covered in tall Buffalo grass that whispers its historic past as one might sit silent reflecting upon the romantic images of the American West. As the wind blows through the wild blades of green stems that still flourish today, the sounds of the cowboys yawp can nearly be heard as they command their livestock on the long cattle-drives. Today, no other item best reflects the images of those cowboys who worked the cattle drives than the “Chuck Wagon”.
Prior to the Chuckwagon, Cowboys often relied on eating what they carried in their saddle bags such as dried beef, corn fitters or biscuits. In 1866, cattleman Charles Goodnight knowing the importance for his crew to drive cattle they'd require daily meals, bedrolls, extra gear and supplies. A humble Cowboy could work harder on a full stomach and a good night sleep. The trail would often last two or more months moving cattle several miles each day. Some drives lasting up to five months. Goodnight took a surplus Army Wagon made by Studebaker and added a large Pantry box to the wagon rear with a hinged door that laid flat to create a work table. The cook would then have everything he needed at arms length to prepare food. Shelves and drawers were added to the inside of the pantry to carry supplies and cooking gear. The larger pots, cast iron skillets and utensils would be carried in a box mounted below the pantry called the boot. The Army wagon merely was a light supply wagon of that period with Goodnight’s added design creating the invention of the CHUCK WAGON.
Tomorrow we will finish our history on the Chuck wagon. I smell dinner, gotta go!

Thanks for coming by my page when I was BOTD. It was so nice to see you. That picture of me with the wing bandage was the first one I had on which I manage to chew off in two days so I was given another one which was like a straight jacket but finally that darn bandage is off and now I can preen and take baths again. I even bit mom when she was holding me and the vet cut my bandage off. hehehe that showed her! Hope you and mom have a great day!

Hugs
Cheeta

  Hi Sammy
It's a total c/p day today. Mom's surgery went well yesterday, but she was kind of down and out for the count for the rest of the day. Today she saw the eye doctor for the follow up. Her doctor told her it looks good, the eye looks fine and should heal normally. She even told her she could go to the pool, but not beyond chest deep in the water. Mom was happy to hear that, since pool days are on the wane, at least for the outdoor one. Once she is totally healed, she will start going back to doing laps at the indoor pool, though.
I hope you are having a good day with lots of laughs, sun, and cuddles. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Sam... it's me Little Bit
Thank you for coming by to visit me. I was very surprised to have company - you are the only one who stopped by. It was fun! I think my fister Chloe was a tad jealous but even when Mom takes me to the other room to give me my medicine, she has to follow to see what is going on. I am really being a good girl and I am not chewing my foot, but I am tired of taking that yucky stuff. It was good at first, but after a while it has a taste after I swallow it, so I learned to spit some of fit out, and Mom learned to have extra in the syringe for when I do that. I like it when I get good juice or a grape right after I take my yucky stuff, and then I give Mom kisses and if she is real lucky, I might poop on her too. I know I should not do that, but sometimes I just gotta go. Mom said she has to write an update on Facebook - my toes are still the dark color but I can hold things a little now. Mom will be sending the vet another picture this weekend and he will write her back. Mom says your picture with Tooth is beautiful. She was so upset when she read about him passing. He was so special. Some birds find a place into her heart and they are not even hers - they just do. Tooth is one of them. Well, I am going to go and take that awful stuff and get to sleep. It is dark outside here, and there is no more play time. See you again.

  Day 14--Rustlers in the hills
Howdy all you cowbirdies out there in BC land, Chuey here with today's Trail Update. It has finally stopped rainin' and we're movin' slow along the Great Western Trail headin' for Buffalo Gap and our first major river crossing. I been figurin' some and we should be able to bed down close to where Brownsville is now located. The herd has been having a tough go of it what with all the mud and rain it is slick and the footin' is bad.
With the fresh horse prints heading off into the hill country, the possibility of rustlers lurking anywhere along the trail, we have been riding doubled up and our eyes open. Jenny-Lynn had taken off with riders to scout out the hills, Jedi and his frothers came across a fresh camp fire hidden well away in the heavy brush, but no riders where found. To some's thinking, this might be good news, but I know well enough that we are far from free from danger.
A drive often covers 1,500 miles and takes four to six months. The hours are long, the conditions brutal and the dangers are very real, especially from stampedes, which could be sparked off by the smallest thing. Longhorns are nervous creatures and easily scared, so stampedes are common, and often fatal for both men and animals.

A calm herd can become a solid wave of nearly unstoppable alarm and panic in the blinking of an eye, and neither man nor horse is safe. In Idaho, a 1889 stampede led to the deaths of one cowboy and 341 Longhorns. In July 1876 near the Brazos River in Texas, almost an entire stampeding herd plunged into a gully; and more than 2,000 head were killed. The sound and heat generated by a herd on the run is truly staggering, and on a hot night, a steer that ran 10 miles may lose up to 40 pounds. It's out job to keep the herd calm, moving and always be on guard.

Panther comes galloping in to tell me that he, Jedi and Kiddo had come across three horses and riders 'bout a mile up the trail. That was disturbing news, but we were all ready, just in case they had in their mind to steal the herd. I told Panther to warn the others riding point, and I'd warn the out riders, stopping to tell Little Peep to ride back to tell the drag to keep their eyes opened.

Rustlers were never taken lightly in by-gone days. In fact when caught many a would-be rustler was hung from the nearest tree, or shoot on sight. Horse thieves were not taken as severely as cattle rustlers but often had the same fate. The wranglers had to be ever vigilante for signs of rustlers along the trail. These often made night raids, when it was easier to make a sneak approach, stampede the herd, then drive off a considerable number under cover of darkness.

"It's gonna be a long day and night for the cow wranglers."

  Hello Sam~
I hope you are having a great day! Everything is fine here at my nest. I'm having some playtime with mom and soon I will head off to the play cage for my apple.
We have lots of chores to get done today and I think mom is going over to the market to get a few things. It's only at the end of our driveway so she won't be gone long. Later on we will be getting some cooking done. My beans and grains for my mash are soaking and mom will cook those tonight. I am hoping that some corn bread will be on the menu too! A little corn bread to go with my mash sounds like an excellent idea to me!
I just love your tribute picture of Tooth. I still think about him all the time and can not believe he is actually gone. You did a great job with your picture and I know that it is giving comfort to his moms!
I do hope you enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
With love ~ Sugar

  Day 13--Troubles brewin'
Howdy trail pardners, Chuey back in the saddle today. We had an ornery time getting onto BC yesterday. Finally, here I am again. I am happy that the rain has slowed down some and that all you cow wranglers did a greyt job keepin' the herd bedded in the trees and under control. Now that the rain has blessed the thirsty ground with water we face yet another danger. Cattle drivers often fought one threat or another when moving cattle. As dangerous as drought can be, too much water carries it's own risks.
Cattle gorge themselves on water and die within minutes from water intoxication. The thirsty cows over-drink, and once they fill up death can happen pretty quickly. Cattle wranglers must keep a safe medium between dehydration and over-hydration. Often a challenging task, trying to drive thirsty herds back from watering holes after they have gone without water. A cow consumes up to 8 1/2 gallons of water daily. In drought conditions they may get less then half a gallon. So, when water is available they gorge on it. Water that stands in the heat often becomes dangerous for the cattle to drink. Heat and sun produces toxic algae to grow rampantly, a fatal hazard to cattle.
Today we will move our herd onto the trail again, to make up for down-time during the storms. Our biggest concern will be to prevent, if possible, stampedes when they smell water as we approach Buffalo gap this afternoon. Due to the rain, the trail is muddy and slick, a bad combination for both cattle and riders.
" Pepper, Gus, Willie and Cori, take up the right outrider and keep those long-horns close. Sky, Silver, Pookie, BonBon and Chipper, you ride drag on the right and keep close up, they're goin' ta bolt when they get wind of water. " Chuey directs the wranglers into position." Jenny, Sweetie, Kiddo, Raffi, Snowflake and Cookie, you scout for water that ain't movin' too fast, keep your eyes open for rustlers hopin' to make an easy raid and drive off some of the herd. We need to keep them bunched tight today."
"Boss, do ya want me to take left out-ridin' today?" Spot asked.
"You gather the riders, keep the group close, and watch for strays that decide to make a break." Chuey tells Spot.
Pushin' her hat back, she stands tall in the saddle to scout the land ahead. " I have a bad feelin'" she tells Strawberry and Falco, " a bad feelin' indeed. We better keep our eyes wide open today. With all that rain, we're bound to have problems"
"BOSSS" yells Jenny trotting fast across the open field behind the slowly moving herd. " Found fresh horse tracks to the north, headin into the hills yonder." she points towards the heavily treed hills. " Want us to check'em out?"
Chuey instructs Jenny to take 4 riders and scout out the hills, keepin their eyes open for an ambush by rustlers. Watching Jenny gallop off to the north Chuey sits a stride for a moment to think, then races off to gather herself a searchin' party to join Jenny-Lynn in the hills.

  Hi Sammy
What a wonderful tribute to Tooth, that is a beautiful picture. Do let his moms know it's here for them.
Yesterday afternoon it rained like crazy! There was about 2 inches of water in the bucket mom leaves out to catch rainfall. We keep saying it's good for the gardens this year, though. Today is sunny but really cool out. Mom says she's still going to the pool, just to sit in the sun. It might be her last day for a couple of days.
Tomorrow is the big day! Mom has to be at the place at 8:15, so hopefully she'll be home by noon. We are all hoping for the best possible results. Mom says if it goes like the first one, it will be fine. We won't be online tomorrow, but should be back on Friday or Saturday.
I hope you are having a good day today, filled with summer skies, sunshine, and love. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Silver Sluggers Coach Sam, from LaLo
...but tat was in the good ol' days, boy do I ever miss all the baseball friendships, and all the good times we all had in your back yard! We are still having unseasonable cooler weather at our home, and to us it feels really good, but we know you are all warm weather worshippers! Every thing went well for dad at the VA appointment yesterday, the major concern was his Potassium levels and he has brought the numbers up to acceptable levels and the visiting nurse is scheduled for today, but dad might cancel that one! Happy hump day dear friends, and give my love to all in your home, see ya tomorrow...

  Hi Sammy
Today is a gloomy, dark, dismal day, made worse by recent news. We were so saddened to hear of Tooth's passing, then we heard about Robin Williams. Tooth was a great friend, we knew him from his start on BC. He was always full of energy, he made a good quartermaster on the pirate adventures, and was always fun at the milongas. Robin Williams was a very funny guy who brought sunshine to a lot of people. We lost both of them too soon.
Not much to report on here. Mom got her appointment time at the surgery center, so she'll be up bright and early on Thursday. She started the drops yesterday. Tonight she will go to dinner with her sister, and they will make plans for the ride to the center. Last time, they went to lunch after the surgery, so this time, it may be a late breakfast for them. Mom is hoping that they are done in time for her sister to get to the pool, even though mom won't be going.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of warm sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Sammy
This morning was a neat day at the center. Mom cleaned the outdoor turtle pens, then had the menagerie to clean. She hasn't done that in ages! It's so neat to be able to talk to the animals and touch them in there. She gave some of them enrichment activities, too. She put Dan and Quincy Quail's mealworms and duck food in a pan of leaves and sand so they could forage, she put a strawberry in a little box so Murphy the skunk could dig it out, and other things like that. She put an ear of corn into a plastic hanging bucket with a hole near the bottom for Ladycrow. All in all, it was a fun day. Little Twitch the squirrel was climbing on mom while she was cleaning his cage, he's so sweet. Chelsea Possum got her pets and some of her favorite yogurt today, and Irwin got an apple treat. Mom ran out of time so she didn't interact with the snakes or Muddy the turtle too much. Ray the crow was running in and out between his indoor enclosure and his huge outdoor space, so he was happy not interacting, just yelling from outside.
It's a rainy day here, so maybe mom will do some laundry and get some zucchini bread made. I hope you are having a pleasant summer day with sunshine and lots of cuddles coming your way. Hugs, Willie

  Day 10--When the rain comes down
Howdy cow wranglers, trail Boss Chuey here with some important news. As I perdicted yesterday the rains came upon us from over the mountains to the North. Now, we be needin' that there rain, but it does also bring us cow punchers a mess a trouble when it comes to tending these long horned critters. Havin' just traveled over one hundred miles with little more then a shallow creek or river here and there, these dawgies is itchin' to get some good grazin and a long, cool drink.
The thunder could be heard for miles before the first grey clouds dotted the blue horizon. The wind had picked up early on, and the herd had been spookin' and bolting all the day long. The first heavy drops of rain came as a blessed relief after sittin-saddle for fourteen long, dusty hours.
"Boss, rains comin' want that we move these cows closer to the trees?' Kiddo asked reining in Freckles in a cloud of parched dust.
"Better, they are boltin and fussing. Have Cydney and Gus help cut out the bulls and bed the herd down over yonder." Chuey points towards low lying grass land."Now, let me tell ya the cowboy life is no bed od roses so to speak. It's plum full of troubles, woes and dangers. In addition to hard work, the cowboy and his horse encounters many dangers on the cattle drive, particularly when crossing rivers. If the leader of the cattle was distracted or disturbed by a tree or brush floating in the river she might turn around, which would turn the entire herd around, causing them to "mill" in the river. The cowboys have to drive straight into the center of the mill, striking the animals to force them back on track or the cattle would drown. In 1879, a herd of 3014 cattle panicked while crossing the Platte River in Nebraska and 800 died. The cowboys often a time die in the river, thrown from their horses or gored by horns of panicked cattle swimming in the middle of the mill. A surprising number of cowboys are also unable to swim, according to Western historian Albert Marrin, who claims that most rivers on the cattle trails had numerous graves of drowned cowboys. Now, back to the troubles we was havin'."
Sky comes flying in so fast his horse skidded to a stop. " Rains coming hard, we'll be in the middle of it in fifteen, maybe twenty minutes."
"Strawberry. Hulk, Cookie, Susan" I holler over the mowing and bawlin' of the cows, " move' um yonder to the trees." Quick as a whip they had their horses cutting and herding the leaders towards the trees and low lands.
"Panther and Kacey were working hard to keep the cows with young calves moving. Some of them there calves bein only a few hours old and all."
Snowy and Cappy were busy helping Lizzie, Mikey and Kaji to get the pots and what-nots loaded back into the chuckwagon when the clouds over-head bust and the driving rain began. It was gonna be one long, night keeping them cows together.

  Hi Sammy
Mom took some home made focaccia to the pool Friday and again yesterday for her friends there to taste. (Focaccia is a bread somewhere between pizza crust and ciabatta.) She used olives crudely chopped, along with herbs from the garden. There were rosemary, basil, and oregano in the dough. Everyone liked it so today she's carrying the recipe to a few of them who asked. She hasn't made focaccia for a long time, and this turned out pretty well. She doesn't make bread products too often, as they would go to waste here. She is thinking of zucchini bread today, though, when she gets back from the pool.
Tomorrow she has to start the drops in the eye for the surgery, which is a good thing. Today is a pool day once again, but she will be going to the pharmacy after to pick up the eye drops. Our neighbor Jeff dropped off some home grown tomatoes, corn, and peppers this morning, wasn't that great of him?
I hope you are having a warm sunny day there and getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Willie
