Daddy (and Mom) took us home from the pet store (he was a falconer and had red tail hawks previously, but we smaller birds are easier...) If anyone is interested in becoming a falconer, you need to find a currently licensed falconer to sponsor and train you. You have to take and pass a test. You have to pay for a license. You need to have all the equipment to keep a bird - a mews (the hawkhouse), a travel box, a falconer's glove, jesses for the bird, hoods, food, etc. and everything is inspected by fish and game. Then when you have all the training and license you build a trap and catch a wild (first year) red-tail hawk, but during the trapping season. All novices start with a red-tail and you have to train it and eventually you take it hunting. Whew! Dad was the falconer, but Mom would tag along. They did that for a few years, but now they have us, the cockatiels!

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Well, Mom sure is enjoying her car radio. Eggspecially since on the way to her arthritis massage with Mattea, the off ramp was closed and traffic slowed to a crawl. Mom took the next exit, which was only 1 mile away, but it took her 10 minutes to get there since she never made it out of 1st gear. Just imagine how nuts she would have been without a radio!! She was late for her appointment, but fortunately it was a slow day for Mattea, and she didn't mind.

Mom joined me to read for a bit when she got home, and now we are trying blogging with me on her shoulder. So far, so good, and I am behaving. How long will that last? We shall see!

Then it will be lunch time, and I am hoping for something with pasta. Mom won't let me have any cake, but she did stick her finger in the Cool Whip and let me lick it off. Yum!! Dad has already eaten half the cake!! What a glutton! Although we must admit he doesn't get sweets very often, so I guess this is a special treat for him.

Becky had to cancel her session with Mom yesterday, because she got stuck in downtown L.A. traffic and couldn't make it back in time. Mom went to the gym anyway, and she managed to hurt her left shoulder working out by herself. She passed on zumba, but she did leave cake for her friends. Becky promised to swing by the gym and pick up hers. And of course, Dad harassed Mom about hurting herself when she came home early, but I was so happy to see her I gave her lots of kisses. You know which one she preferred!

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope you guys are having a good day! McKenzie and Merlin are still being needy so it's taking mom a long time to get anything done. It's back to work for her tonight. Not sure about the schedule for next week since the assistant did it and has mom off when there is work to be done. The other assistant told mom to work when she needed to but she will check with the manager.
We don't have cable TV. We have Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon Prime. Mom pays for Netflix, Jennifer for Hulu and and dad and Ian have the Amazon prime. Netflix does collections from HGTV so the show are not necessarily from the same season. The House Hunters International is usually people looking for apartments in foreign cities. It's interesting to see what the places look like and how much it costs to live there. Paris is beyond expensive but some of the places in South American are not bad. We watched one in Greenland yesterday and were surprised to see how expensive their rents are. Some of the cities are a big surprise since they are so modern and have so many tech things in their apartments. In Seoul they have veggie washers built into the kitchen!
Hope you guys have a great day and hope work went well for mom. It's been getting much busier down at Ian's store for the past week or so. School will be out soon! Summer is almost here!! Hopefully it will get a bit warmer here so that people will buy all that summer stuff in the stores!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Mom loves the fresh garden stuff and even though she's planted zucchini seeds and all she got so far has been squash flowers which we love too when she makes those,so very yummy,she can't seem to get the zucchini itself,while Nana has had huge zucchini!Mom has even planted carrots and gotten itsy bitsy teeny weeny carrots.She has gotten radishes and some lettuce and tomatoes and tons of parsley.Hopefully it will yield a good garden for her this year when she does get to plant some seeds,our dad has to til the garden first though.
Nana is keeping a nice list of what wasn't done properly and she has been talking to the head contractor and letting him know just how unhappy she is about the job being done there.It seems like you just can't get what you want done these days when you hire someone to do the work for you if you can't do it yourself.They're quick to grab the money but not quick to do the job properly and satisfactorily.
I definitely agree with you on the money spent on preventative care is really important and saving in the long run for things to go more smoothly and to not have a bigger problem down the road with a medical emergency etc.Both Mom and Nana will find out tomorrow how things go at the hearing aide place.
Mom is gonna have to leave much earlier tomorrow morning when she heads out to Nana's again.Our population here has already begun to increase and by this weekend it will be even more so.
This morning was a bright sunny and warm morning with the highs for the day of 74 the lows of 59 and right now its 79.Mom and all of us are loving this heat and sunshine!After Dad left for work Mom put some things away and then got us up and cleaned our cages and fed us our bean mix and swept our room.Then she collected the recyclables and loaded them in her car for tomorrow and got most of the trash ready to go and got that out in the garage.Mom will be home with us all day working on as many chores as she can get done and she promises to take us all out for some sunshine and showers later on.We are all loving this warm weather and Mom opened all our windows to let the fresh air come through the house and it really feels so good.She's hoping that once she shut both heat boxes off that she won't have to use them again til next fall!Other than that and it being a boring day here which is wonderful news to us,we are happy to have Mom home with us all day!
The three tiels all open their wings up wide for a big group tiel wing hug and hold on tight for a long time humming and swaying happily!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm tiel hugs and soft tiel kisses and a vote too!Loving you always and forever,Peepers

Congratulations to my brother Willie on getting to 20k votes, and to my friend Chyna for making her 30k votes! The party at the HOF should be in full swing right now. We're heading back there as soon as our blogs are done.
Mom had 2 tours again today. The first was with sixth grade on biomes and climate change. They were great! It was an all girl group, because the teacher had separated them out that way. Mom thinks that's a good idea for 6 and up, because then the girls aren't shy about answering and asking questions. The second group was fourth grade in dinosaurs. One of the chaperones was a former docent! Mom knew her well, so had her help out with the touchable skulls during the tour. Those kids were fantastic! But you knew mom would say that: 4th grade, dinosaurs...
Today after we're finished, mom is going to water the plants, hopefully finish planting all the other stuff Jeff brought over last night, and get the house plants outside for their summer vacation. After that she's ours for the day/night! Tomorrow we have birdicures scheduled, yuck!
I hope you are having that fine weather like we are having here, low 80s, sunny, and beautiful. Have a fun day, get lots of cuddles and scritches, too. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, 20k, let's celebrate!, Peppino, vote Laka for BOTM & Falco, vote Laka, 259145, BOTM.

It's Blue and Jewel.
Yesterday morning, when dad tried to log onto the BC none of the pages would open. Today it seems to be fine.
On Monday mom and dad left home again and went to the movies. They saw The Criminal. It was a good movie. They did come home at a decent hour and spent time with us while they fixed dinner.
On Tuesday they stayed home most of the day but went out to their favorite Mexican restaurant, Senior Compo's. It was Chamber of Commerce night and the police chief and the two station captains waited on them. Their friend, Bob was there, too. This is one of the only times that mom and dad can GIVE the police command staff orders. We were already asleep when they got home.
Yesterday was free taco lunch day at the police station, to honor National Police Week. After stuffing themselves with tacos mom and dad went to visit their friend, Ron who is living in an assisted living home. Dad said he wouldn't mind living there and have everything done for him but they don't allow pets.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 75 and a low of 56. ADT is coming to find out why our alarm system isn't working. When dad had our landline phone disconnected he found that the celluler backup was not working. Dad has had a lot of issues with the system since they upgraded it.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

  Morning fellas- love from Jenny & dad
...dad does in fact have an emergency Freedom Alert to wear around his neck, but he wanted to know that an ambulance would not be called, he will not go back to any hospital ever again, unless he is dying! There are 4 phone numbers programmed into it, and one is our across the street neighbor man! Dad talked to him early this morning when he came to take our trash around to the alley! He told dad not to worry! Dad was up early getting things ready for Ms LaLo, it is a labor of pure love, and he is looking forward to a visit with our dear friend aunt Denise! Very few notes today, but we wish you all a great Thursday and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

  morning fellows !
Happy Thursday :) Boy, it got real warm, real fast here ! Yesterday hit 88 ! The first thing I did when mom got home was take a dip . . . felt real good too ! Daddy dragged the window fans up from downstairs, and tomorrow since she's home, mom will clean the a/c filters and get them ready. Of course daddy will be home too - g'pa has his follow up with the surgeon. And hopefully they'll finally get the deck ready for us to go out and sit . . . sheesh - I don't know why mom's so slow this year ! Maybe her toes need a nip or two ! !

This afternoon is Landon's gym class . . . mom is also stopping at the Ford dealership - she got a $750 Memorial Day coupon in the mail and wants to see if it can be applied to her new Edge . . . luckily, his class isn't until 4:30 so she'll have time. That would lower her monthly payments by about $15 and better in her pocket than Ford's ! ! Right ?

First flea market this year is over the weekend - mom is excited . . . I'm not ! It means she'll be gone ! love Cookie

Oh yes, the turtles lay the eggs on the beach and when they hatch ... babies run to the ocean. They just don't want you stepping on the eggs ... that's why the area is roped off with signs.
Mom was really cold in UT. She was happy that it was 85 here when the plane landed at midnight. I think we are used to the temps here.
It was another beautiful FL day. I helped mom around the house. Then I tossed every toy on the floor for mom to pick up. Got to keep her moving. I think we will just hang out around the pool tomorrow.

Mom lost an African Violet and an orchid and never has any luck with them so wasnt much of a surprise when they both didnt make the winter here inside the house.
Oh yes too hard to do crafts of any kind with young ones around but bet in time she will be learning how to knit from Gram LOL.
This morning mom took the winter comfort and blanket to the Laundromat and washed them and then she bought them back home and hung them on the line. They are too big and heavy for our washer here at home. She did some cleaning in the back rooms and then we went outside for my sunbath. Mom put some of the summer decorations up outside and I supervised. There was an electric man came and changed the street light bulb out front on the big pole. It wasn’t burnt out but this one has a different color to it at night. I was glad when he was done and left with his noisy toys. Most of moms lawn decorations have solar lights on them so when it got dark enough mom and I looked at them out the window. “We don’t meet people by accident. They are meant to cross our path for a reason” Left a vote for you ~~Hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  had any breakfast they decided to check out a restaurant in Mashpee so Mom drove back to Mashpee and they didn't find anything appetizing to them there so they wound up having a Fro Yo which was right next door.Then from there they went to Stop&Shop and both Mom and Nana got some things.Mom got a bag of apples marked down,a berry torte with fresh blueberries,strawberries,kiwi and raspberries and some french vanilla coffee creamer powder for my dad for work.Then they went back to Nana's house and the painter was still there finishing the kitchen.He was trying to find the key hanger that he took off and both Mom and Nana went all over the house looking for it and he had found it but never said a word to either Mom or Nana that he had found it.Mom went out back in Nana's yard and brought the tarp in that was covering her A/C unit all winter and got an errant clothes pin off the line that was keeping her clothesline from rolling the way it should.Then Nana made both Mom and herself some tea and they had a little snack before Mom left to go home.The traffic is really picking up around here now and it takes Mom a good half hour or more just to drive the 15 minute drive from home to Nana's and back again.When Mom got home our dad had given us our snacks and Dad unpacked the car for Mom while she went in to see us and clean our cages out then she put the groceries away and pulled out some of the chicken pot pie she had made on Sunday that she froze into individual dishes for dad's dinner.We got to join them for dinner and Mom gave us some cherries she had bought the other day and were those cherries so good!Candida shared dad with some of his Chicken pot pie and we all got some peanut butter cookie from dad's dessert.Mom is so tired from a long day today and we are waiting to snuggle with her after she helps us get our notes out!

Oh those snow peas are so awesome and we're all hoping that my Mom will plant them in her garden this year,she usually does well with the snow peas and the green beans.My Mom doesn't care for carrots maybe if they're shredded on a salad and like you said there's nothing like snow peas straight from the garden!
Nana isn't very happy with the painter,he never cleans up after himself and leaves the mess in the house.He takes things down that are on the wall and never puts them back up.My cousins over the counter type light never got put back up when he finished their room and he even lost the screws that were used to hang it up with.Mom had to re hang the clock in the kitchen and he even lost Nana's extra keys that were on a key hanger,Mom and Nana spent a good 45 minutes looking for them everywhere in the house and the painter finally found them but never said anything so Mom and Nana could stop looking for them!
Nana agrees with you about when she gets the hearing aides she just will wear them out or whenever she's going to be with someone or out in the stores etc.Mom will take her to her interview again on Friday afternoon.Mom and all of us so agree with you that the insurance should pay for these special procedures that aid in making life better in the most important ways!You pay into it each week/month and don't get anything back from it at all when you really need them to step up and approve you for whatever needs must be met to live healthily with no problems!
This morning was a bright sunny morning a little cool to start with but did it ever warm up nicely!Our highs for the day were 76 with the lows of 53 and at 5:30pm its 73.Mom got dad off to work and then she came in and swept our room,cleaned our cages and gave us our bean mix.She gathered some pellets for our cousins who were out of them and brought them to Nana along with an onion she had needed.Then she got in the car and left us here as the painter is still there and Nana's house is utter chaos with everything everywhere.When Mom got there Nana couldn't even make them any tea or coffee because the painter was up on a really tall ladder painting Nana's kitchen a deep color lavendar.The kitchen was a total mess with a long tarp over the counters and things taken off the wall,clock,key holder,bill holder etc.Nana was very upset because the painter guy took things down from the wall in our cousins Bird Room and lost the screws to their over the sink light that Nana has for them.He never put the light back up.Then he wasn't going to do her stairway upstairs wall!He was sporting an attitude today.Mom and Nana left to run some errands and they went to Mashpee first to find some curtains for Nana in Marshall's but found nothing there for bedroom curtains,they went to Falmouth and went to Ocean State Job Lot and looked there but they didn't have anything in the way of curtains for a bedroom either.Mom got a 96 count Kcup box for my dad for work.Then as it was getting late and Nana never

Hope you are having a great day! Nice around here so far. We have been getting a few things done around the house and watching House Hunters International. Very interesting!
Mom was on the phone with her sister for a long time and McKenzie does not like mom being on the phone. She has been crawling all over mom and barking! She is very annoying! Merlin is trying to get in on the action and wants to sit in moms lap! They are both so needy!!!
They finished the barriers on the street so now all that is left is line painting. It's suppose to rain over the weekend so they will probably get it done soon. It was fun to watch but I think everyone is glad that all those orange cones are gone.
McKenzie managed to chew up the Kong bone and the Nylabone is not looking good either. Mom is going to have to get more I guess. Don't know if she will ever get over chewing but at least she has been leaving the furniture alone!
Enjoy the rest of the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

My mom plays games on her phone too. Think I mentioned it before she plays words with friends and trivia crack.
Gosh got pretty warm yesterday and stayed warm and humid last night was in the upper 60's. Today has been warm too and will be another warm night. Last night mom sweated up a storm and tossed and turned all night. So think tonight the air will be going on. At first she said she refused to turn it on this early but certainly don't want to be uncomfortable all night. Happy humpday have a good evening.

The poke cake recipe Dixie's mom sent was not for chocolate cake, but Mom changed it up a bunch. It turned out pretty nice, but since it said it was better the 2nd day and Mom mostly wanted it for her buddies at the gym it hasn't been cut yet. Dad and Mom will get to try it tonight.

Well, Gloria is home (at 1PM today) and has a new radio. The old one could not be repaired, so they put in a new one (not Audi) and added an external component to do the smog stuff the old radio did. It was way cheaper than any other solution, so Mom is satisfied...now if she can just figure out the controls! She has managed to preset buttons for NPR and her two music stations. For more than that she will have to study the manual which is very confusing so far.

No sunbath today, since we are still in the upper 60s. However Mom and I shared a Chicken Poblano lunch, which has pasta so I am a happy boy.

She usually goes to the gym on Wednesday from 4-6, but since she still can't make it all the way thru a zumba class for the full hour, I am eggspecting her home early. Toesies crossed!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Today mom had a fourth grade group for PA natural history. They were fantastic! She's a little biased, though. The second group was a bunch of first grade kids doing an animal tour. They had the attention span of goldfish, so it's a good thing they had 4 chaperones for the group. Mom finally gave up and just played I Spy with them in the dioramas of North American and African wildlife. They seemed to like that better.
Mom stopped back at the feed store to pick up the suet that got delivered yesterday afternoon. There was only one kind, and she usually buys a variety. She didn't care, just got 10 of the Nutty treats. Then she stopped for milk before finally making it home where she could change into shorts and a tank top. It's pretty hot outside; the car registered mid 80s and the deck thermometer registered high 70s. So after the blogs are done, I think mom will be out tending the new plants, watering them at least. I hope you are having a fine day today and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Morning P&S-love from Jenny Lynn
Dad made it through the PT session in pretty good shape, but started feeling tired and weak before it was over! When he came in from our garage, at 3:30, he had a relapse and fell again, and did not have the strength get back up! He hates to take advantage of the kindness of others who care! Aunt Denise will be here tomorrow at 1:00 with LaLo in hand, I WILL BE READY, come heck or high water! Have a great hump day dear friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow hopefully...

Forever love from Jenny, Ms LaLO, Christy, Ziggy, & our trying hard daddy

  morning fellows !
16 days in my countdown ! And this is a special weekend cause mom is off Friday and Monday for Memorial Day :) Am I lucky or what ?

I don't know if you remember me telling you about the caw-caw nest near school ? Mom and the kids watched earlier in the year as the parents built the nest - picking up all kinds of things from the school yard. Then they watched the parents chase even hawks away from the area. Well, the babies have fledged and although mom and the kids haven't seen them yet, they've sure heard them - and boy, are they loud ! !

Today is supposed to go up into the high 80's before a cool down to the lower 80's for the rest of the week . . . hellloooo summer !

Have a great humpday guys ! love Cookie

  Hi Pearl & Silver
i got to sit on the porch for about 45 minutes for the first time this year. Dad sat there with me for about 1/2 until mom brought Cori out in her harness and then dad went inside. even though it was my old cage it scared me at first but i adjusted very quickly and even took 2 baths.

love Boo Boo

My dad said that they have areas roped off on the beach ... cause of the turtle eggs ....
I'm back! I missed mom but she had a good time at the bridal shower and site seeing. I found out that I'm honorary flowerbird girl. This is eggciting! Mom got home at 3am so has been moving slow today. She missed me and dad and our warm weather (88 to 90). It was in the 60's and low 70's in UT! Hope all is well with everybirdie.
Hugs

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
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!!!
Mom is off tonight so we are watching Sahara. It's very exciting! Lots of stuff blowing up and lots of excitement!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Pearl and Silver
The scrubby yarn with the cotton works up fast for mom and she is crocheting hers but it does go pretty fast...Pstt mom is slow LOL.
Today was another busy day here. Mom says catching up on things left behind is rough but she is getting there. Its been cold here and mom usually has her plants out on the porch by now and her winter blankets off the bed and washed and put away and summer ones on. Mom decided today after she got back from getting a few groceries she would put her plants out so while mom was doing that I got my sunbath. She had the door on the house open and the plants are close to the door so I kept a close watch on things. She ended up throwing two of the plants out so we are two less LOL. Some just don’t survive winters in the house well or mom‘s Ungreen thumb LOL. “We don’t meet people by accident. They are meant to cross our path for a reason” Left a vote for you ~~Hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Well the heat wave will be moving in here for the end of the week just in time for Memorial day...Temps are suppose to be in the high 80s...Nice for all the pool lovers...Most of them will be opened for the holiday weekend.
Last year the Grand was into Mickey Mouse this year it is Thomas the Tank Engine..
Yes toll are both ways on 2 bridges and one on the other..At least the most expensive one GW bridge is toll just for entering in to NYC...
Dad is having trouble up loading the pictures from his camera to the computer...He asked the computer tech about it and he explained to Dad how to do it but it is not working...So as soon as he can get it to work they will post some for all to see...This little Sunny certainly is always busy when he is out in the living room with Mom..
Hope you are having a great Tuesday...Pecked a V4U...Many birdie wing hugs to both of you..Love you 2 buddies, Stormy :o)

My mom hates to admit it but sometimes she spends more time on her kindle playing games then reading. She use to not like that candy crush game very much but now is hooked on it. Always good to stock up on the books so one doesn't run out of things to read.
Got into the 80's again today guess its suppose to get humid as the week goes on. Really hope they get the sir situation figured out at work. Mom would rather have it on the cooler side any day much easier to get warm then try to cool down. Have a good evening.

Well, Mom dropped Gloria off at the Car Doc this morning at 8AM. They will take her over the hill (to the San Fernando Valley, that is) to have them work on the radio. They assured Mom she will have her back late this afternoon. Sure hope they are right, because Mom has been going nuts without a radio. And she still has no idea how much this will cost!

Meanwhile she is stranded here with me! Yay! We will have a Lean Cuisine for lunch, as soon as she is done blogging. However this morning she made something called a Poke Cake, that Dixie's sweet Mama, Aunt Rose, sent her the directions for with pics and everything! It is mostly done and in the fridge setting up the pudding topping right now. She says I can have some whipped cream and peanuts, but since the cake is Devil's Food I can't have any. Now Dad says I am a little devil all the time, so shouldn't that entire cake be mine?

No sunbath, since it is still just barely 66 degrees outside, but the weather guessers are still calling for a warm up by Thursday or Friday. Sure hope they are right, because they show sunbathing weather for the entire week after that!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Nana finally called the head contractor and he came down to see what the problem was and they are going to take care of the holes in the floors that were left from the electrician from the heating changeover and they will be painting the kitchen and taking down the wall cloth where they said they wouldn't do the other day.I guess you really have to keep making a pest of oneself in order for someone to hear you about what you want done in hiring them for a job.
I think that the insurance companies call anything that's really needed cosmetic!Which is ridiculous,braces aren't cosmetic when it means having your speech become more clearer or fix a problem in your mouth preventing swallowing etc.It is quite strange how they determine who is cosmetic and who isn't!Nana isn't quite sure about getting these less eggspensive hearing aides as she may be able to hear my cousin Trixie even louder than before!LOL!Mom will take her up for the appointment on Friday afternoon again.Nana never called Verizon today because she has too many workers all over her house and everything is a mess with furniture everywhere and drop cloths,paint,etc.She didn't want anymore people running around so she'll try calling Verizon on Thursday when it may be a bit more quiet.
That's funny,Aunt Karen doesn't like peas and carrots and neither does my Mom!Mom prefers the southwestern blends,it really makes the pot pie taste so much better and gives it a little kick too!
This morning was a dull,dark,dismal,dreary sunless wet day with the highs of 60,the lows of 51 and right now its 56.Mom had tried for several hours to get on BC but we kept getting all these error messages and we couldn't even log on at all.We tried going through another birds page as they had the blog box to type in and when Mom did that and hit the add comment button it came back up with more cannot connect to remote hosts etc.So Mom just got us all up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us our bean mix.She came back and tried again but no use.So she worked more on the chores in the house.Since we can't go outside today,we will be spending time inside.Mom is trying to catch us all up on our notes because BC took away all our blog time and Mom has to get everything done before skin bro comes to pick her up tonight to go looking at an in law apt in Centerville.Other than Mom working on chores its going to be another very boring day here but that's the kind of day we love,it keeps Mom home with us!
The three tiels all open their wings wide for a big group tiel wing hug and hold on tight for a long time!No birdie ever wants to be the first to let go!

Yesterday mom planted everything else that was left. She thought she was done, but noticed that the guys who did the lawn weed whacked the Chinese Lanterns that she planted. She called Jeff to complain and he said he had more, and would bring them. Well, he brought three more plants, as well as snow peas, potatoes, tomatoes, apple mint, mustard greens, and cilantro! He and mom planted all that, and by last evening her neck and back were aching. It was a good time to plant, though, when there was help! Jeff also cleared out some of the day lilies so mom could plant the Asiatic lilies she got for Mother's day.
Today mom has a lunch with the pool ladies. I guess they'll all be talking about the pool opening on Saturday. She also has a bunch of errands, like getting more seed and suet which she didn't do yesterday, getting more fruits and veggies for us, and getting a mani/pedi if possible. Bree is coming on Friday to do our birdicures, so that's arranged.
Seems like summer is on the way! I hope you are having a great day. It's beautiful here this morning, so we're hoping it stays this way all day long. Get lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

  Happy ToosDay Boys, love from Jen Lynn
Today dad has his PT instructor coming into our home, he does not dread that as much as at first, but he still hates the privacy intrusion! He is still slow, but he can tell he is getting stronger! We will be in the mid-eighties again today, but no complaints here, this is what we have been waiting for all Winter! Dad has to roll LaLo's cage back into her room and fix it up for her return home, Jenny won't be coming just yet! Sometimes something good happens even at our home, and while dad was resting, we got the sweetest phone call from our dear aunt Eileen and Sugar, they are top shelf friends, and McKenzie was squeaking her toy the whole time! Have a great ToosDay dear friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

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

  hi guys !
Happy Tuesday :) Days are getting busy as mom tries to tie up loose ends at school and get started on all her end of year paperwork. Tomorrow the kids have their hands on part of the NYS Science test . . . today mom has to stay late and get it all set up.

Last night just as mom and dad left to go on their walk, the skies opened and DUMPED rain out ! They got home to me pretty darn quick ! ! So instead of a walk, we all had strawberries and cream - OK, I had just the strawberries, but boy oh boy were they good !

Have a great day ! love you - Cookie

  Hi Pearl & Silver
today we saw a bunny . it was munching happily on our hostas. everyone always blames the deer but the bunnies eat all the low to the ground plants. this bunny was very chubby.

the nursery delivered the bottle brush shrub today . dad spent all day Saturday and this morning digging the hole. it would have taken mom a week to dig the hole. after dad put the shrub in the ground he spent the rest of the afternoon mixing the soil with social mulch and peat moss and carefully tamping it into the ground. the shrub doesn't look like much now but eventually will.

love Boo Boo
