Hi! My name is Dino

I am an African Grey from Stockholm, Intl.

Lots n´lots:) In swedish...

22 years old   M

African Grey

Oatrings and peanuts (trying to cut down on those tho but I just love ´em;) Also bananas, liverpaté (yeaaaah, I know), apples, tomatoes, cooked ham, eggs, carrots, chickpeas. ...Popcorns and more!

Top natural perches, me climbtree in the kitchen,hall, the Patio, and sometimes in a closet I decide to inspect

Being at the Vet´s, neighbours drilling holes in the wall, rain on my head, insects buzzing around my head;).....PINS in my NECK:(

When she sings and talks to me. When she let me snuggle up in her bed, and the scritches. ...when I´m up for it that is;) Our sessions of learning new things and all the praise I get after:)

Hanging like a bat while mom clean me Homey. Looking inside all the closets, known and unknown, peekaboo´s behind doors.....

Never give up and a new day will come with new possibilities..

Hello dear friends-

Dad's making preparations to leave on his short vacation. Of course it will not seem short for either of us.
-
Aunt Kathy, the Bird-Sitter, will be lookin in on me, and my dear Uncle Geno promises to visit as well, so they will help pass the time....but nothing's the same without Dad. It's gonna be tough.
I have Dad trained for when it's time for fruit, when it's time for seeds. . .
Dad keeps telling me to be nice - last time I was so sad and angry and everything else that I was miserable to the bird-sitter . . . .
= = =
Saturday was a nice day. Dad and Uncle Geno took a short drive into the country.
Today is rainy and Dad will be at the movies in the afternoon.

....

  Hello Dino~
You are very welcome for my usually boring notes!!!
We sure hope your mom feels better very soon. I hope you are not gone forever from BC but I have a feeling BC will not be here for very long either! It is very difficult to use these days and I don't think the company cares much about it anymore!
It's always been so much fun to chat with you! I'm glad you will be keeping in touch with Aunt Erin!!

  Hello Dino~
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!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

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!!

  Hello Dino~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Another quiet one around here. I've been busy trying to get the puppy to come close enough so that I can give her a nip! Mom keeps telling me no but McKenzie is so trusting and really wants to come closer. Mom told me it wasn't nice to tease her like that so I'm back to chewing some toys for now.
Mom managed to break the little toe on her left foot so she is not walking very quickly today. She doesn't even remember how she did it! She walks into things all the time so she probably banged it on something yesterday! She is a real klutz!!
Enjoy your day and I hope it's spectacular! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Dino
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!

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!

  Hello Dino~
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!

  Hello Dino~
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!

  Hello Dino~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Another beautiful spring day up here!
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!!
I know you are having trouble with the BC but I hope you can at least read your notes so you know I'm thinking about you!
Enjoy they day and I hope it's spectacular!

  Hello Dino~
I hope the day was wonderful! Sunshine and blue skies here. It got near 70 also. I think tomorrow is going to be just as nice. It certainly is nicer to take McKenzie for a walk when the weather is nice.
Mom got the vacuuming done and dad followed with the carpet cleaner. They still need to do parts of the carpet but they ran out of soap! Can't say I'm sorry cause it sure was noisy with both machines going! Looks nice and clean though.
Mom cleaned out under the fridge and the stove this morning. She didn't even have to give McKenzie a rawhide to keep her busy because she went out to sit with dad on the balcony. Merlin hasn't been feeling well today so mom has been keeping him separated from the puppy. She just gets too rowdy and he can't handle that now. He is doing better this afternoon. I think it was hairballs! Time to get more of that stuff that mom puts on his paws! I think he actually likes it!
I have been helping by doing lots of yelling! It's always good to let the joy out and let mom know I'm thinking about her! She was only a few yards away but I still want her to know that I am full of joy and want to share it with her!
The baby canaries are doing well. Mama canary is still siting on the 4th egg so hopefully it will hatch soon! Moms sister already had people asking for them so they will all get good homes! Now she wants to figure out how to keep it from happening again!
Enjoy your evening and I do hope it's perfect!

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! Leaving a vote and big hug!

  Hi Dino
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!

  Hi ya Dino!
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.
Enjoy your day and I hope it's a very special Easter for everyone!

Hey, Dino --

Cold Damp Rain Rain Rain today.
Dad is home this morning, and I'm Squawking Squawking Squawking to distract him from the computer-thingy and play with me.
= = =
Dad is having computer problems today and may only send a few Blogs if even that is possible.

Dad was wondering if ever other birdie does "Banana-Time" the way I do:
1. Bananas MUST be hand-fed.
2. Between each bite, I go into my "banana-dance" and Dad MUST follow my moves and prepare to feed me my next bite of banana. [Repeat dancing, then next bite]
3. Dad finds this both fun and exasperating. I love banana-time!

I’m still Squawking and wishing everyone a Happy Day.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Mom pulled a dirty trick on me today! I knew she was leaving because she put a small piece of candy in my bowl (a Smarties). I sat up on my door and laughed, I wasn't falling for it! Then she did the most despicable thing!!! She reached into my house and started playing with MY TOYS and was moving them around! WELLLLL, I couldn't let her get away with it...it's MY HOUSE, MY TOYS...plus I had them in the perfect spot & she messed them up! I stormed into my house to set mom straight, and she closed & locked my door! How rude and diabolical! She said she had to get the grandkiddos off the bus and watch them for a few hours. I was so happy when she returned home, I didn't even give her any pinches! BUT....this isn't over!!!

It's going to be cold the next few days. It's supposed to snow Saturday thru Monday, but will warm up again Wednesday and will be back in the low 60's.

I hope your day was a good one!

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!

  Hello Dino~
I'm Here!! I hope you guys had a great day! We had some nasty storms last night and today. We lost power! It went out this morning but came back on after about 10 minutes. It kept flickering off and on and then it went off and stayed off for 3 and a half hours! We sat on the sofa and watched a movie on moms Kindle. Actually, mom fell asleep with Merlin on her lap and McKenzie on the right. I was on the left in my play cage. We all sort of took a nap! The power came back on just before mom left to pick up Ian.
Mom is off tonight so she can get some sleep. Starting next week her regular days off are switching to Tuesday night and Wednesday night. That way mom will always be there for the weekend ads they throw in a couple times a month. At least she gets two days off in a row. Saturday night she has to go in at 10 since the time change happens and they will lose an hour. Hate the time change!!!!

even though Coris feathers still have the maroon coloring on them she is feeling better and better these days. she used to be a real couch potato and scream just so mom would pick her up and carry her so she wouldn't have to fly. every morning mom would let her out of her cage and she would climb to the top and just sit there. now she is getting bored with doing that and will fly to mom hang around in her hair for awhile as she reads the paper and then fly upstairs to sit under the sky light with all the house plants. well today she heard dad in his office coughing and decided to go in there to see him. dad was laying on the floor and she walked over and stood on his pillow and talked to him. dad didn't know she was there and yelled to mom that Cori was loose which scared her causing her to flew around his office and landed on his train collection. dad then saw she was there and put her back under the skylight after he told her how happy it made him feel for Cori to come visit him. then Cori saw her breakfast was ready and flew back downstairs for breakfast.

then when mom went to take care of me ,I jumped out of my cage because i wanted to see my daddy also.i know how to get to his office .mom had to quickly catch me before the cats saw I was loose. luckily i didn't give her too hard of a time catching me. mom is happy we are feeling better than we have been for a long while.

today was 71 and mom was outside working in the yard picking up sticks and leaves. it looked so much better after mom was done but she only got a small part done and will be working as long as the weather co-operates

love Boo Boo

Mom was too tired to blog last night. She sat down on the couch and started typing my blog & fell asleep sitting up! Finally at midnight I climbed onto the couch onto mom's shoulder and said "I'm TARRRED"! She woke up and put me to bed.

We have been having such lovely weather! I'll be doing a lot more car riding, it's so much fun! It's going to be in the 60's and 70's for at least the next 10 days! Our average high temp for this time of year is 47°, so we're way above normal!

I hope you are having a great day!! Happy Pancake Day!! Guess what I had for breakfast??hahahahaha Yep! Pancakes! Mom bought me a box of silver dollar pancakes so I can have them whenever I want them! She is such a good mom!
Mom bought the digital copy of Mockingjay Part 2 today. She'll buy the DVD when it comes out on the 22nd but she wanted to have all 4 movies on her Kindle. I have gotten to see part of it but mom has had to chase McKenzie around so she keeps pausing it. I think it's nearly nap time for the puppy so maybe I'll get a chance to watch the rest of it. I like mom's Kindle! When we read books on it I like to tap it with my beak and make the pages turn!! It's fun!!!

I hope you had a wonderful day! I apologize for the c/p today but it's the only way I'm going to get notes out today! Mom is doing okay. The pain from the shingles is really less but the itching is worse!hahahahaha She'll be taking some Benadryl tonight and getting lost of sleep!
As for our BOTM this month, Kacey and Mikey are running together! They celebrated their 4th anniversary today and I think it's awesome that this young couple will be doing this together. Don't know if they can blog yet but I hope you will leave a vote anyway! The page number is 229611. Look for the wedding avatar on the calendar page!
As most of you have already heard, BC is going to eventually convert our site. It will probably be like the Reptile channel which is a magazine format. That means no blogs. They will not be fixing the site so that means Julio will probably be in the spotlight box until the site changes! I hope every bird will go to the Facebook Bird Community page to leave notes. If you don't have a Facebook page it's easy to sign up. You do not have to put any information that could be used to steal your identity.

  Hi Dino
Some of my friends asked about my car. It is a Fisher-Price toddler car, the kind that little people use foot power to make it go. Mom got it for the grandkiddos and when they outgrew it, it became ALL MINE! There's a pic of me on it on my page, but for some reason the pics that mom uploaded from her phone are all SIDEWAYS! It's really cute, it's red with a big smiley face on the front and a big yellow half circle dashboard which is where I perch! Mom attached a dog leash to the front & pulls me along. Mom says that I think that I'm the Grand Marshal of a parade! I sit straight & tall and say HI to everyone! The neighborhood kids laugh and follow behind, adults come out on their porches to watch me go by! It is very much like a parade! Mom used to pull me up & down the sidewalk where we used to live. Some people would park their cars & get out & take pics of me! You would think that they never saw a macaw driving a car before!!!
Mom plans on video taping one of my car rides, but she'll need someone to help her. She doesn't have enough hands to do it herself because she has to walk with a quad cane. The next warm day that Aunt Amy is here we will make a car riding video!


I hope your day was a good one!

Well, March came in like a lamb but by evening it's going to go all lion on us! From 6pm until 5am tomorrow. Wind 15-25 with gusts up to 50 mph. It's going to be noisy tonight! More crazy weather! Today it reached 67° (car driving weather) then the next 4 days it's supposed to snow! Mom took me out to drive my car for 40 mins, we went around the block twice!

Mom thought she was being clever last night but I know what she was doing! After mom tucked me into bed and covered my house, I heard the rustle sound of a wrapper. Did she actually think that I couldn't smell the delicious aroma of that chocolate bar! I said "Mmmm"! She had the nerve to say night night Bub! I'm sure that you'll agree with me, if it's something that I'm not allowed to have, mom has no business eating it either!

I hope your day was a good one!

  Hi Dino
Happy Leap Day! I thought that mom would be home with me all day today but she decided to go to a couple stores. She said it was going to be a quick trip so she took Sadie the wiener dog with her. She ended up being gone for almost 4 hours! Sadie didn't mind, she LOVES going in the car! I didn't end up in lockdown, mom couldn't trick me into going into my house! Usually she'll put a small piece of candy in my bowl and I dive in after it! She tricked me yesterday but I wasn't falling for it today! I looked her in the eyes and said NO! As soon as mom walked out the door she heard me laughing, I went after my yummy prize!

Mom was glad that Leo won for best actor, he sure deserved it! Mom did enjoy The Revenant, but that type of ending drives her crazy (I'm sorry to say that it's a very short trip)!

I hope your day was a good one!

  Hi Dino
Mom and her sis went to the movies today to see The Revenant. They wanted to see it before they watch The Academy Awards tonight. When mom got home at 5pm it was 64°, so she took me right from lockdown and outside to drive my car for a little while! I had so much fun that I forgave her right away and only gave her one pinch on her chin!

The Valentine's Milonga was so much fun! Thanks for voting for my pic, I was so surprised that I won in the Single & Lovin' It category! A very big thank you to SweetPepper and her sweet mom Teri for making my pic for me! I want to offer my congrats to all the winners of the pic contest! Tho, every pic was wonderful, I wish everybirdie could have won!

I hope your day was a good one!

  Hi Dino
I thought that I would get my notes & votes done early today because I'm going to the Milonga tonight!

Thanks for liking my laundry basket story! It's mom's favorite story of my silly antics! I wasn't scared at all! From the time that mom adopted me, she has been conditioning me not to be afraid of everyday things by playing silly games. My favorite is: "I'm going to choke your head"! Mom will squeal loudly like I do & lightly bop me on top of my head with the object. I squeal, laugh & say WHOA! Life is one big, exciting game to me! I've noticed that many of my friends are afraid of the sweeper, I LOVE it! Ours is an upright & I like to ride on it! Mom has to move it slowly when I hop on but it's so much fun! I love it when mom puts on the edge attachment & puts it against my beak. I love to feel the the sucking air on my birdie nose! I'm a great big silly bird!

I hope your day is a good one!

  Hi Dino
I have a very funny story to tell you about "WHOA"! When mom adopted me, she would say "whoa" when we play and when there was a loud noise such as thunder, & it became a game to me. This happened about 16 yrs ago. Mom was sitting on the couch folding laundry, both of my sissies were in the room & I was playing on the floor. I LOVE to climb on & into clothes baskets. That day I made the mistake of climbing up an empty round clothes basket. It happened so fast, as soon as I reached the rim of the basket the darn thing flipped over on top of me! As soon as it trapped me, I said "WHOA"! My mom & sissies were howling with laughter so I started laughing too! So, I'm under this basket, walking towards mom, my tailfeathers streaming out the back, all the while laughing and saying, "WHOA, NOW WHAT, WHOA..." Mom had collapsed on the couch holding her stomach because she was laughing so hard & by then her and my sissies were crying! Mom said that it looked like the old-fangled Mousetrap game where the plastic cage comes down & traps the little plastic mouse! Mom FINALLY lifted the basket & picked me up, we continued laughing at my escapade for quite awhile! I wish I could tell you that was the ONLY time that happened but it happened a few other times! I soon learned to stay off the little round baskets when they're empty! I prefer the large rectangle baskets, they are pretty sturdy & don't topple over!

Mom didn't see the mechanic yet. He called yesterday morning and asked if they could reschedule. The school had called & he had to pick up his sick son from school. He's supposed to call tomorrow to let mom know what day to bring her van over, hopefully Mon or Tues.

I hope to see you at the Milonga tomorrow!
I hope your day was a good one!

  Hi Dino
What crazy weather we're having! Yesterday it was 62° and today it is snowing! I don't think that we will have any accumulation because the ground is too warm. Oops, (or should I say Whoa) mom spoke too soon! While she was out running errands, she got caught in a white out! She ran into a building to pick up some forms, it was only sputtering a few snowflakes. Mom was in there less than 10 mins & when she walked out everything was white & there was almost 1/2 inch of snow on the road! It stopped as quickly as it started!

I had the most wonderful dessert after dinner tonight! Mom had bought a jar of chunky cherry applesauce from Aldi's.  It had whole cherries in it and was soooo delicious! Mom wasn't feeding it me fast enough so I climbed onto the arm of the couch and stuck my entire face in the bowl!

I hope your day was a good one!

  Hi Dino
It's 8:30pm and we are having a very loud thunderstorm! It's quite unusual for us to have thunderstorms in February! I'm snug in my roost, but each time there is a loud clap of thunder, I say "Whoa"! Wow, we just had some rolling thunder that shook the house and almost knocked mom off her feet and set off car alarms! I sure hope this storm is over soon!

I was very chatty again tonight! I said "WHAT" for a solid half hour, so mom gave up on trying to watch a TV show & turned her attention to me! It works every time! When we are being absolutely adorable, how can our parronts do anything other than give all their attention to us!!!

I hope your day was a good one!

Good Wednesday Morning.
.
With all the issues on the BC, we are beginning to reevaluate our time here..
We love all our BC friends, but it's taking too much time struggling to simply say "hi".

  Hi Dino
Mom has an appointment with the mechanic on Thursday. She can't wait to confront the dealership but first she wants to gather up as much documentation as she can.

Looks like we will have one more warm day before winter weather returns. It's supposed to reach 60°! Saturday was a gorgeous day! Not a cloud in the sky & it reached 67° with 50° for the low! Mom took me outside & let me drive my car, I was so excited! Mom couldn't get over our low temp of 50°. We were hit by the Polar Vortex last year, and the low for 2/20/15 was 10 BELOW ZERO!!!

I hope your day was a good one!

  Hello Dino~
I hope you are having a great day! BC seems okay right now but it has been such a mess lately that every bird is having problems. Julio has been in the BOTD box for 4 days now!
Mom had to go to the doctor this morning because she got this strange rash on her neck. Turns out she has Shingles!hahahahaha She's only been 60 for 3 weeks and she already has an old persons disease!hahahahaha
There is a vaccine for it but it's too late now! She has to go get some medicine and take it for the next 10 days. She is suppose to get lots of rest but we all know that's not going to happen! At least dad will be home later today and he can take over puppy duty while mom gets some sleep! Once she is better then she can get the vaccine.
I have been playing with my new toys and driving the dog crazy with my bell! It's pay back for all those stupid squeaky toys she is always chomping on!!!
I hope your day is just spectacular!
