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, today's the big day! Mom gets to eat real food, and she started our day out with a bowl (very small bowl) of cereal with banana (a very small banana) which I of course shared with her. As usual I preferred the cereal she had in her mouth to what was in the bowl, but that's par for the course.

Then she left about 9:30 for the gym, and her trainer did abs and core work for the first time in 8 weeks. Unfortunately for Mom the entire 50 minutes was abs and core. Think she'll be sore? Then she ate half a protein bar (trainer said to take it slow on solids this first day) before zumba, which she managed 50 minutes of. She was going to try for the entire class, but that last song was a super fast one and she caved.

Then she came home and instead of coming in to be with me, she took a shower and then took a phone call from her friend who has a court date coming (she's up for disability) and they talked for over half an hour. So by the time my mom came in to see me I was in a rage and bit her hand and her ear, so I got a time out. She did an Ensure for her lunch (big fried chicken dinner coming home with Dad after all) and after a bit she came back in and I was very sorry, so we went out for a sunbath. It's a pleasant low 70s today.

Now I am back in my room, because when she tried the knee sitting blog routine, I went for the antique dresser instead. I swear the hormones made me do it! Not my fault!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Mom's nephew got something or other from the internet that allowed him to officiate at the wedding of one of his closest high school friends. They have remained close, and she asked if he would perform the ceremony.
Yesterday, mom led 2 anthropology tours at the museum. Both were with college students from West Virginia University. Mom's first question to both groups was how many were hung over? WVU won their football game on Saturday, so there was some celebrating going on. She had fun with the college students, and both groups covered 3 desert cultures, Ancient Egypt, Inuits in Northern Canada from about 100 years ago, and modern Hopi Native Americans. The second group was more engaged, and seemed to have a better time with it. At the end of the second tour, they asked if mom had been a teacher, so she said yes. They hoped it wasn't at Pitt, to which mom replied that's where she got her Masters. One of the girls said she'd forgive mom for that, because everyone is entitled to a mistake now and again. Mom just laughed and laughed over that.
Today at the center, mom cleaned the RVS room and the squirrel porch. It was funny on the squirrel porch, there were 3 fox squirrels, including the one she fostered, 6 red squirrels, and about a dozen gray ones. The gray ones were in and out of each other's cages, having a ball. Mom couldn't get an accurate count! Hopefully they were all there.
I hope you are having a wonderful day, full of sunshine, love, and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Pearl, hi Silver.
It's Blue and Jewel.
Most of the stuff that mom has on the DVR is soap operas and Rachael Ray. Don't think you'll find those on a DVD.
Yesterday started off on a sad note. Yup, paying bills. That sat the mood for the rest of the day. Dad changed more sprinkler heads and mom watched TV. After dad was finished with the sprinklers on the north side of the house he came in and watched TV with mom. Hey, at least they were home with us. Mom finally noticed the TV shelf that dad built. She said it looked great and matched the entertainment center perfectly. Yaaaay Dad!
Today will be partly cloudy with a high of 81 and a low of 61 and mom and dad will be working at the police dept.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,

t's already here again ! And jeepers is it cold ! Mom spent a good part of the day dragging in plants since we were having our first freeze warning last night - and we sure did ! brrrrrrr . . .

Now it's back to school for mom, back to work for dad and back to my cage for me ! I finally scored a new shred and destroy toy from Palooza to play with. Of course I have to find a good place to do that first ! It's a small box (3x3x1) with confetti coming out the sides and a leather strip with wood pieces tied to the top . . . and guess what's inside ? A NUT ! !

Does mom have a picture of baby Jade in her wedding finery ?

Have a great day ! Love to all - Cookie

  Hi Pearl and Silver
what a lovely wedding photo of your skin sis and her new hubby.

not sure if you remember when i got my foot caught in my baby birds nest which i always liked to sit in and hurt my leg and foot over it. this was about 4 or 5 months ago. mom then made me a new nest out of a coconut shell with rawhide strips to secure it to the top of my cage. well all these months i wouldn't go near it. mom still kept it filled with alfalfa and 24 herb salad and i finally started going over to it to check that out. well today when mom got up she found me sitting in the nest and mom said i looked so darned cute sitting there. dad saw it too and also said how cute i looked. mom doesn't think there is anything with this new nest that i can get caught in but since i am now sitting in it she will take it out of my cage when no one is home to make sure i don't get tangled up in it somehow.

love Boo Boo

  Hi Pearl & Silver
What a lovely wedding pic! Thanks for sharing.
Yes, they should have had heaters around all the tents (food tent too). Then, it would have been so much better. They really didn't have much seating inside either.
Today was spent just hanging out with my parronts and chewing up new toys. It's still dark, gloomy and cold here. Dad put the patio furniture away when mom was at Parrot Palooza. That's a sign of winter for us!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
We woke up to a dull gray day here this morning and was it ever freezing and it only got up to 55 degrees.Mom had a busy day today trying to get the food ready for the last BBQ we are going to have for the season.Mom cut up lots of onions and fresh tomatoes from Nana's garden,lettuce and got all the condiments out for the hamburgers and hot dogs,then when the grill was ready she put on a steak,turkey breasts thinly sliced,hamburgers,hot dogs and a mixed veggie platter that she grilled.It was freezing out 50 degrees and cloudy with no sun.Both skin sibs came over and as Mom was grilling they were taking some of skin sis's things out of the cellar and sun room to take back to a storage unit they got.Skin sis still has her big game table and her desk in the sun room she has to come back for and all her things in the spare room which is Mom's work out area to get rid of.After they got through eating outside they decided to have dessert inside which was Pepperidge Farms gold cake with chocolate frosting.We all had to stay inside our warm room while they were outside.And we couldn't join them for dessert because of the chocolate!Then Mom got all her houseplants inside and as she was doing that dad got the deck furniture into the sun room for the winter. Mom got the deck cage back out into the sun room for the winter also.How sad to see an empty deck now!Tomorrow is going to be a freezing winter morning with temperatures only at 36 and our lows for tonight will be 38 so they say so far.
Mom gave Dixie the weekend off from taking his meds as he's in a lot of pain right now and it hurts for him to stand to take the syringe of antibiotics,even his wings hurt bad and Mom is cuddling with him to keep his feet warm next to her under his blanket,just so he can have time for several hours off his sore feet,his cries of pain are so awful,Mom will start him back on his meds tomorrow morning.
Mom will be so glad to send you the full recipe by email and she'll get that to your sweet Mom tomorrow morning!I can't wait to see those cupcakes,they sound so wonderful!After tomorrow we'll be getting rain and it will rain here for the rest of the week,from Tuesday on right through Friday!Can I send you some rain?LOL!
You are right about the kids having to get those shots in order to be entered into school each time they go from one section,elementary,middle,and high schools.
Mom is laughing because your skin sis is an inch taller than she is!It really must be something when she and her new husband are together and people stare because of the height difference!Mom was dating someone who was 6'7 and he couldn't stand every time they would go somewhere to hear people yelling out there goes Mutt and Jeff!I guess height made a difference to him on the dating scene!Being so short does make others think you are much younger than what you are and treat you that way sometimes which would really upset Mom!You're right about not being taken for being 12!That can really be ann

We have heard others getting the chicken pox or measles later in life and they say its alot worse as an adult then a child too.
Skin sis doesnt look real short in the picture and just figured SIL was very tall though.
Mom said it was too cold this morning to go out so she did a few things around here instead. Then she decided to get the grands albums caught up to date again like she does every winter. She didn’t have the three grands new school pictures yet to add or the oldest grands birthday picture so she just put what she had in the albums for now. She does have the oldest grands in line to order but will probably wait to order them since there will be the youngest grands birthday soon plus Christmas too so will just wait. I think she is going to start birthday cards soon cause mom likes doing that more. “The bond that links your true family is not of blood, but of respect and joy in each others life like bird channel is for all of us“ Leaving a vote with the note and a big hug as well…Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Hi everybirdie Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. I want to take a moment to thank you all for your continuous daily votes, and awesome blogs. I am trying to use them in my story line so keep them comin.' IF anybirdie still needs a Halloween picture please let me know your choice of costume and I will see what I can do to help you out.
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" Sky screams shrilly and he a Jake back up quickly from the mound of parted grass. "What was that thing???"
"I have no idea but I'm outta here" Jake heads back to rejoin BB and the others, with Sky following on his heels.
Sky shivers, and ducks behind BB. Peaking out to stare towards the grass with dilated eyes. "EEEEEKuck." Sky did not get the words out before birdies began to scream and jump as fast as they could to join Jake and Sky behind BB and BonBon who had come to see what was wrong with her Poppa Sky.
"S-P-I-D-E-R-S!" from every direction big, ucky, black, beady eyed spiders crawl, hang and appear out of every tree, bush and from behind every blade of grass. The girl birds huddle close together as the spiders spin their webs angrily from every solid object. Sky nervously sneaks a peak again from behind BB, closing his eyes. He hates spiders, well no, Sky is afraid of them, and these are BIG, black ucky ones with a quadrillion legs. He shutters, then takes a brave breath of air.
"BOYS, we must protect the ladies" Sky announces not too confidently.
"Yeah, that's right" Cookie says, hanging tightly onto BB's leg once more. " we'll protect you girls"
"Oh really, they're just Spiders" BooBoo says snatching one in her beak and swallowing it whole, "YUMMMMMIE"
The others look at BooBoo and make faces, "how disgusting BooBoo, eating it without BBQing it first" BonBon chirps up. " AHHHHHHH, ones chasing me" she says taking flight. She lands on her Poppa Sky's head. "I'll sit up here and keep watch on them for you" she grins down at her red feathered Poppa.
The spiders continue to emerge, spinning thick webs everywhere. Their black eyes glaring like fiery flames of anger. The birds huddle closely as the Spiders move closer and closer. Suddenly Jesse sees what looks like an opening, and yells, " Follow me" he runs as fast as his talons will carry him between two Mulberry bushes with the others closely upon his heels. The duck low to avoid the heavy webs hanging from the old dark trees, and weave to the left and right around the huge black spiders who appear to block their path of escape. Jesse rushes forward, jumping over an old fallen log, and lands inches from a monstrous Spider, who growls and snaps his feet at the pasting birdies.
"EEEEEEEEEEEE" the scream brings the fleeing birds to a halt, "LITTLE ANGEL, the Spiders grabbed her into their web, HELP HER!!!!!

The wedding pic is a good distance you can see it fine.
My mom has a fear of falling too she would never want to go on one of those glass look out boxes they have at tall buildings like the sears tower or that new glass walk out thing at the Grand canyon.
Be nice if we could vote on doing away with the time change kind of recall they were talking about it at one point but don't remember for sure.I know a few years back they changed when we turn the clocks back so it would be later in the year.
Since mom got all the chores done yesterday it's been a lazy day here with football snacks and some pizza.Sure love days like this. Have a good evening.

I hope you are all having a great afternoon! I'm having a nice afternoon even thought my Seahawks did not do so well! I still love them!
Mom is going to go pick Ian up soon and then we will head off to the bedroom so she can get some sleep! She is now half way through her 8 day stretch!YAY!
Mom heard on the radio this morning that there was another town that got e-coli in their water. This one is in our county but not close to us. mom is glad she decided to put us all on bottled water since they can't seem to find out where it came from. They never did find out up on Mercer Island and it happened up there twice!
Did Jade get to go to the wedding?

  Hi Pearl & Silver
It is very nice here today. They were calling for 77, but I don't think it got quite that warm. Our thermometer says 72, and it's 1PM now. I did get out for my sunbath though, and it was very nice in the sunshine. Got two nutriberries as well, which is always good.

And so now I sit on Mom's knee dictating my blogs. She has the door shut, since Dad is home. And besides I have a made a break from my room twice today for the bathroom. I love hanging out on top of the medicine cabinets in there. And besides it annoys Mom, which is always fun.

We had mac and cheese for lunch today. Mom added some Cajun spice, cottage cheese (for protein) and a bit of Romano cheese to kick it up a notch. It must have worked, because she really liked it and I ate like a little pig. Good thing she gets to eat meat starting tomorrow, because this morning when she woke me up and I was doing my morning stretch, she referred to my legs as drumsticks! Yikes!

I think that raccoon better be released far from the center, as he knows it's a source of food.
That is a beautiful wedding pic, is that the one mom and dad attended?
The opera gala last night was wonderful, too bad it couldn't have lasted longer. Mom did hear lots of arias, duets, and ensembles that she loves, and they did a bit of operetta as well.
Mom's tour with college students turned out to be fun yesterday, and they wanted Dinosaur hall, which she loves. Today mom has 2 tours at the museum with West Virginia University students. Do you think she's trying to avoid the football game? I sure do. She got very upset with the team's loss last week, even though she didn't see the game.
I hope you are having a good day, lots of sun and warmer temps than we have here. Get lots of scritchies and cuddles today. Hugs, Falco

It's Blue and Jewel.
Thanks for honoring us with BOTD.
The flag is huge, full size. Dad's flag pole is for a smaller flag. We think we see another project coming on.
Dad is finished with the TV shelf and will bring it into the house today. It took him all week to build and finish it but he's happy with it. Mom spent the day marking TV shows to record on the two DVRs. Now she's complaining that there's no more room on them. Dad had a brilliant idea. Stop recording stuff! We don't think that mom listened.
Today will be partly cloudy with a high of 81 and a low of 61.

  Hi Pearl & Silver,
what a cute couple...congrats to them...

Today is football Sunday...the Hawks made a bold trade yesterday and traded Percy Harvin to the Jets...mom thinks that the Hawks will be fine without him, they played almost all of last year without him. The Seahawks offense needs to get on the same page and this just might help. Mom is hoping to see a couple of our new receivers get to play now.
Sorry to say but I have to root for the Broncos today over the 49ers but it should be a close game...

  Hi P&S from Jennifer
...what a gorgeous looking bride and groom,that groom is sure a tall drink of water! Our bird club meeting went well and we got several new members, these are all wonderful people, that anybody would be proud to call friends!

  Hey P & S
It's Sunday - and it's getting chilly and windy here. Dad got up during the night to close windows :( So when mom got up (after sleeping in till almost 6:00 !), instead of getting right on line with her coffee like she usually does, she went out to start cleaning up the back deck. There's a freeze warning for tonight so all the plants have to be cleaned off (bugs) and dragged in before the end of the day . . .

Mom also has a little school work to get done which I'm hoping she'll let me assist with ! Math tests and compositions . . .

Have a great Sunday ! love Cookie

ps. Dad's mom is the same height as sis ! And his dad is the same as your dad - we all come from small families ! har har har !

Of course we're running late. HE slept in until 6:30, and now has to rush to get done, so I can send them off to the ORLANDO bird show. RT

  Hi Pearl and Silver
it is a dark and dreary night…

so far they re doing a good job tracking the ebola virus and containing it. the problem with viruses are that they like to mutate. the 2 major hospitals in pittsburgh are saying since they are research hospitals they are competing with each other and asking that the ebola patients be sent to them for treatment. mom lives 6 miles from one of the hospitals. all zombie movies always start out with these words. DO NOT PANIC. EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL then the mayhem starts.

well tonight when mom went to use the computer she couldn't get on the internet. she checked and the computer said she was on the internet but she couldn't do anything other than read her email. she finally figured out that even though she was connected to the internet her search engine on Safari had disappeared. mom sat there for over an hour trying to figure out where it went. finally mom turned the computer off and then on again. still no good. then mom called comcast and told them to reset her computer by sending a signal. still no search engine. mom turned off the computer and went to the grocery store. when she came home she turned the computer back on and the search engine was back. mom doesn't know what happened but glad it is back.

love Boo Boo

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Parrot Palooza wasn't cold inside but they had tents with lots of stuff in them for shopping and games etc. It was dreary, rainy and cold. But, the moms had fun. We birds got a good haul too!
Yeah, my mom is always barefoot and sometimes dad too. They don't like stepping on my wood slivers!
This high of 40 with rain is not nice. Hope our weather gets better before the snow comes.
Does any bird have some sunshine they can share? We are in the hot chocolate season for sure!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Skin bro sends you his love and thanks for the birthday wishes,that is his dream for having a greyt birthday to land a job that he can be able to pay his rent and his bills again!
My Mom and dad got up early this morning and we all had to get up with them for Mom to clean our cages and give us all our warm bean mix breakfast before she left with Dixie.The appointment was for 9:20 this morning and my dad got them there at five past nine am and there wasn't a car in the parking lot so dad went into the building to see if they were open and they were,the vets etc all parked on the other side where the pizza place is so Mom took Dixie inside and the vet tech took him into the back room while she waited in the waiting area,he came back with a good report,his eye is healing nicely but he still has to take the antibiotic and the eye drops til they're gone.Mom will send your sweet Mom the full recipe if she'd like it!Its really good and very versatile.
How nice to not have to take your houseplants inside as your weather never really gets that cold!Our temperatures will drop to 55 tomorrow and will get no higher than that,it was at 70 today but we had strong winds that made it feel much lower than 70.Then by mid week we are in for a full four or five more days of rain again!
Mom will check BJ's to see if they have those bulk boxes of Tootsie Pops there usually is around 60 to 80 pops in those boxes if they still have those around anymore!My Mom does the same thing she shuts down the lights and door at 9 at the latest!Halloween is on a Friday night this year so who knows how long the kids will be out as there is no school the next day!
Poor baby having to have those shots in her legs,I'll bet she was really cranky and Mom and I sure don't blame her for that one!And to think she's got to go back for more in a few weeks,Mom remembers having to take the skin sibs up for their shots and as soon as they start school then there's even more shots to go through!UGGGGH!!
What a beautiful picture of skin sis and her new husband! He sure is super tall! Skin sis looks so little next to him!She's so pretty and what a good looking couple they make!
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 for you too!Loving you always and forever,Peepers

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Those poor babies have to have the shots but they do hurt for a while but better then them getting sicker I guess.
Oh the wedding picture is so pretty and a nice couple they make too...thanks for sharing with us. From what we can see looks like the grand favors the mom in looks but again its a bit hard to tell.
This morning mom and her cousin met up at a church that was having a craft show. I told mom she has enough crafts to get done here but she said she had gallon plastic jugs my water comes in for some lady there. The lady makes skeletons for Halloween out of them so mom said she will save them for her. I suspect mom looked at all the crafts there too though. Oh well she didn’t stay long and was back home the rest of the day with me so that was good. “The bond that links your true family is not of blood, but of respect and joy in each others life like bird channel is for all of us“ Leaving a vote with the note and a big hug as well…Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  October BOTM POST number twelve
Hello friends, Jesse here with our Saturday BOTM Adventure Post. As we turned for a final look at BC Lake, the water is once more calm, glass-like and no sign of the past violent storm remains. Even the row-boats have disappeared. "WHAT! The row-boats, their gone!" Kacey exclaims loudly as she stares in disbelief. For indeed the boats had vanished into thin air.
BB looks at Sky and Jesse, then back at the Lake, "I hope we can find the BC Castle. It is funny that it has disappeared on us. I know it is a magical place but why would it vanish on the birds who love it sooooo much???" Then looking down towards the ground she says with a sigh, "Can somebirde please remove Cookie from around my legs? Its hard to waddle this way."
" SURE HOPE WE FIND OUR WAY BACK TO THE CASTLE THEN FIND OUR FRIENDS. THIS IS ONE SCAREY TRIP.' Sweetpepper tells Kiddo with worry in her voice. Kiddo takes her wing in his, and holds her tightly. "We'll get out of here, don't you worry Sweetpepper."
Spot comes to where Sky, BB and Jesse are standing, trying to decide what to do next. Jake walks towards the group, but suddenly stops dead in his tracks. "What was that?" he asks pointing to where he had thought he saw something peaking out of the grass at him. Seeing nothing he joins the others.
Bonbon looks and sees that her picture with Parker is in the photo album Hesse has on his gallery. turning to spot and Parker she says, "Jesse put me and Parker in the profile!Hehee!!! I can't wait to show Snowflake........ Oh no! I forgot that she disappeared!" BonBon starts to cry loudly because she misses her friend!
Spot hugs her and says, "don't worry BonBon. We'll find her and all the others too!"(He sounds more confidant than he feels, but he won't let BonBon see that!)
"Hey, Panther! I have an idea! We're tiels, and fly well! let's go up as high as we can and look for them!"
"Good idea, Spot," says Panther.
Jesse says, "you guys be careful! And keep up in sight range, OK?"
"OK, let's go Panther!" Spot lifts into the air
They fly straight up and fly in a big circle looking for their friends. Finally, they land and report to Jesse. "We didn't see them, we also didn't see the castle in any direction! I think we're lost!"
Worry lines form on Jesse's handsome face again, and he says, "it must be a trick of some kind by the BC ghosts! The Castle has to be there. It's always easy to find from the Lake."
Jake and Sky stand close, talking. "I am certain I saw tiny black eyes staring at me from over there, then they disappeared." Sky looks in the direction Jake indicated. Seeing nothing he frowns. " We better go check it out, just to be sure." The two boys inch closer to where the eyes had been. Parting the grass carefully using a stick Sky found on the ground they lean over for a better looks and suddenly the air is split in two by their terrified screams........

  Hi Pearl & Silver
I am having a pretty nice day. It being Saturday, Mom and Dad went grocery shopping. However Mom spent an hour reading with me first (and of course got up early to give me breakfast). Now I am once again well supplied with sugar snap peas and bananas. Mom was very frustrated in the store, because they were giving out lots of samples without having a single one she can eat yet. Monday can't get here soon enough for her.

However Mom forgot to eat lunch, so we still need to do that. She has gotten really weird about eating since the surgery. You would think she would be hungry all the time, but she isn't. No wonder she hasn't gained back any of the weight, even with her one solid meal of rice and veggies (the one she hasn't eaten yet today).

I did get a nice sunbath, and we both enjoyed the mid 70s temps. The sun was out today, so there was actual sunshine. I know I still get the healthy rays when it is cloudy, but it just feels nicer when the sun is shining.

And so as I dictate from my mom's knee, I bid you all a wonderful weekend!

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~!
I hope you are having a great day! I'm having a nice day so far. It's nearly apple snack time so I'm looking forward to that.
The wedding picture is just beautiful!! Look at that dress! Now that is a wedding dress! They both look fabulous and very happy too!! Thanks for letting us see it!
Mom and I are watching House Hunter International. A lot of these people whine way too much but we are watching it to see what houses are like in other countries. It's interesting and the real estate agent in Costa Rica has Ekkies!! It's exciting to see the South American shows and look out for birds!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's perfect!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Pearl Hi Silver
So a nice picture of the happy couple.Is your mom afraid of heights is that why she doesn't like going up on the ladder?My mom is very scared of heights.
Think Arizona is another state that doesn't do the time change think the rest of the state's should do the same.
So much for seeing the sun today it's nothing but clouds it's really gloomy out.Guess it doesn't matter much since my mom is spending the day getting the cleaning and laundry done. Some way to spend a day off from work. Hope your weekend is off to a good start. Have a good afternoon.

  Love the picture !
Jade should've been the bouquet ! har har har ! The new frother-in-law is so tall ! In my family everyone is short - mom is ALMOST 5'1" and dad is only 5'6" -

Happy Saturday - mom is still remembering last Saturday and all the fun she had :) Today she and daddy went apple picking - and now I'm just waiting for my taste ! I do love apples.

We have a real fall weekend - by tomorrow the temperatures are supposed to drop into the 50's and stay there for the rest of the week, with more rain coming in midweek - Tomorrow is also mom's sister's birthday so the parronts may end up heading out for either lunch or an early dinner.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday - love you all ! Cookie

  Hi Pearl and Silver
The sheep/wool thing is generally for people who spin, weave, and knit. Mom's daughter does all of the above.
Today mom has a tour at the museum at 2, and the group has grown. She is not sure how many will be on the tour, because up until yesterday her boss at the museum was still asking for more docents.
Tonight it is opening night at the opera, and they're doing something different. This year, they are doing a gala affair, with excerpts from various operas, choruses and whole scenes. Mom thinks it's because it will be cheaper than putting on an opera. That means the season is cut to 4 performances and tonight's gala, instead of the 5 they normally do. Aunt Gin and mom are going together, so they will be eating at Pusadee's Garden, a great Thai restaurant on the way to the theater.
I guess that means we'll be in lockdown most of the day. I hope you have better luck, and can get lots of cuddles and love today. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Congrats to Kaji!, Peppino, Divo & Falco.
