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, that mean old mommy went off to the gym again this morning. And the nerve of her, after a tough workout with Talyah she should have been too tired for zumba, but oh no! She stayed for 50 minutes today, and even she admits that last dance was probably one too many. However since that means she is all pooped out and only has the energy to sit with me, I guess it works for me.

We had a fruit smoothie for lunch, and I drank so much I had to shake the extra off my beak. Now since I was sitting on Mom's shoulder, she got smoothie on her face. Guess she didn't like it much because she wiped it off. I thought it might be nice for her complexion! Just a giver, that's me. Have to say it sure beat the Ensure she had for breakfast; I didn't want to share that at all.

Don't forget the rescheduled Prom Milonga is tomorrow night, so you will want to clear your calendar for sure!!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Mom wasn't listed today on the agenda, so she was a floater volunteer. She did some dishes and laundry, had the 20 and 45 minute timers for the baby birds, weighed bunnies, made fledgling food, then brought 3 more possums home to release. It was a busy morning, for sure. She loves the new food processor, it chopped up the veggies, fruits and greens for the fledgling food in record time!
I'm posting a new education skunk on my page, she's just a baby and doesn't have a name yet, but isn't she just the cutest?
We are all remembering Gizmo today, we still miss him. He was such a nice birdie, and so smart!
Mom did get to the pool for awhile today, but it got really cloudy, so she packed it in and came home. She's ours for the rest of the evening now! I hope you are having a wonderful day today, getting lots of cuddles and scritches, and having beautiful summery weather. Hugs, Falco

  hi fellows
Yesterday was perfect for mom - low 80's - low humidity - and a good visit with her friend. Not bad for me either since she was home by 2:30ish . . . today daddy is going into NYC to have breakfast with a buddy in from CA, so me and mom will putter about and get a few things done. Very few - mom says it's hard to get too much accomplished when I try to help - which I don't understand !

Big time thunder boomers expected for this afternoon - but I'm brave and don't let them bother me ! Then once they clear out it's supposed to be terrific. Good thing - tomorrow is flea market day and then off to the g'parronts for a cookout ! Hope they bring home not fleas - but corn !

Still waiting for the new pictures to see how big Jade is getting ! love Cookie

  Hey Pearl and Silver,
There's a farewell luau party for my last day as Queen so come by and enjoy all the festivities.

The food buffet will be spectacular and so is the dessert bar. All you can imagine and more!

All the favorites teriyaki on a stick on the grill and grilled corn on the cob and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows too.

Sticky rice, tater tots, augratin potatoes, baked potatoes, garlic mashed potatoes and Spanish rice too. We'll have meatloaf, Swedish meatballs in a stick and you can always mix and match what ever you want and cook it in the bonfire.

The fresh fruit bar will have all the favorites like apples, cut kiwi, oranges, grapes, olives, baby corn, pineapple and cantaloupe and much much more.

The deserts will have a chocolate fountain to dip your favorite fruits or marshmallows or whatever your birdie hear desires. :)

Of course Papa Peter will have the spectacle fireworks lighting up the sky with all the pretty colors. It will be a blast so bring your sleeping bags and we can all camp out at the bonfire.

Spooky stories to follow after the fireworks too.

We'll have benches around the campfires so no one is left without a seat. Hammocks with also surround the campfire along with the bench swings for those who want to cuddle while listening to the spooky campfire stories.

Hope to see everyone there. It'll be a blast of a good time.

My farewell luau party. :)

Love, hugs and a vote.

Love from your humble Queen Laka

Our house is the second lot from the corner. The corner lot is all trees and tall growth. On the side street around the corner are two houses. The one on the far corner is the new people. They moved in and gave an all night loud party. Not the way to go and upset the neighbors! Glad we weren't home.
We were all happy that Luna was a good doggie for the wedding.
Today, we just had a little rain but, dad was soaked on the golf course. We always have a few Mockingbirds around our yard. I love to talk with Molli Mockingbird. But today she saved us!!! We didn't see them until Molli went after them ... yes two black snakes in our yard. She chased them until dad could drive them out of here. She is my heroine ... what a girl!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Well it sounds like a real cure for the flies LOL.
I was ok today when skin sis and the grand stopped in for a while.
Mom and dad got home earlier then they thought tonight so I didn’t have to stay in my condo too long while they were gone and mom is able to do my blogs too tonight.
Last night after mom put me to bed for the night she kept hearing me making noise. This morning when she uncovered me saw what I had been doing instead of going to sleep for the night. I have these plastic nuts and bolts and I unscrewed the nut off and it was on the bottom of my condo. I usually go right to sleep but guess I thought that needed some work done on it LOL.

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope you are having a fun day!
I had computer problems because mom clicked on something she should not have! Ian fixed it up for her and told her no more clinking!hehehehehe It did cut into my computer time so if I have not been over I'm sorry! We can blame it all on mom!
No tree trimmers or gardeners here today. We did see a vent cleaning truck but they are not around my place. They are putting new flags up front. Green and Blue! Seahawk colors!! I don't imagine they planned it that way but it's still cool!
Wonder if they are going to have an inspection or if they are going to sell the place??? Probably not since I know they make lots of money off it.
They were giving away tickets to see the Seahawk practice today but they were all gone when mom logged in. It was suppose to start at 10 am but they were all gone at 10 am!! Season ticket holders got first crack at the them! They let the public attend about 12 practices a year. Mom wanted to go on a day when Taima the hawk was there! She loves the players but meeting Taima would be awesome! She knows a few season ticket holders so next year she will get one of them to get her tickets. It's free except for 8$ to pay for the bus to take you to the VMAC center. No parking for visitors there so you have to park at the movie theater across the freeway and take a bus!
Ian was off today and was very happy about that! I guess he has an add tomorrow. Your mom does too, right? 1st of the month. Mom has one also. Not huge thankfully, since she is doing it alone! Hope your moms goes well also!

Mom puts her phone on the charger every night right next to the bed on the night stand since she uses it for a alarm clock too. Your skin sis is right if using the phone for more then just calls probably needs a charge every night.
Still staying nice here in the 70's although today seemed a tad humid until this evening when the rain moved in. Next Tuesday is showing a high in the 90's as long as it isn't humid that shouldn't be to terrible.
If my mom gets that air cleaner shouldn't be a problem for my mom to remember to get the filters for it she can just get them when she gets the ones for the furnace. Have a good evening.

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Apparently I didn't hear Mom leave for the gym yesterday, because Dad said I did my "Mom Call" right after she left, so he stuck his head in my room. I was in the outside carrier all ready to go out for my sunbath! Of course, no mom plus it was in the 90s, so it didn't happen. Oh well, timing is everything.

Well, I haven't done any more biting, and I actually turned cuddly last night. In fact, I insisted on giving Mom kisses till she was started to get annoyed. However she kept kissing me back, so I was happy. Didn't even give in to the temptation to nip her lips when they were right there and ever so bitable.

It is stay home Thursday, but apparently Mom didn't get the memo. She was gone for almost 90 minutes between the library, getting her feathers cut and finally getting a bath for Gloria. Now Mom says that was record time, but I say she should not leave at all! She did point out that the library books she picked up will be read in my room. Hmmm, guess I might give her a pass.

However she did her best to make it up to me. She fixed another mini pastrami and pepper jack cheese sandwich for lunch. She uses the little pieces from the end of the loaf, but since all I care about is the 'strami, who cares how much bread is there? Yum!!

Its good to have decent lighting and no one has to suffer through the dimness anymore,it makes it hard to see the small print on things too with all the shadows that those dim light bulbs can make!
Your dad has to be someone special to the hummingbirds to trust him!How wonderful and totally awesome for the hummingbird to land in the hood of his sweatshirt and hang out with him!That had to have been so incredible!They know that he's there to help them and to feed them!My dad waters all my Mom's flowers and hydrangea bushes but the hummingbirds never seem to be out at that time.We actually saw one last night while dining on the deck!
Mom has to remember to keep up with Dixie's nare flushes to keep his blocked nare open so he can breathe better and enjoy the smell and taste of his food.My Mom even hates having to flush his nares all the time but he seems to do better when she does.
Its so good to hear that you're getting much cooler weather there now and a nice breeze.We are all so keeping our wings crossed that you don't get anymore of that bad air and heat back again.It would be nice if you could enjoy the more pleasant and lower temperatures.
Mom is hoping that the hearing aides will work for Nana this time.Nana says she feels like there's a big ball stuffed in her ears with them.Mom will make sure that Nana brings the first set of hearing aides back with her tomorrow when they go back to the hearing aid place.
This morning dawned a bright sunny cool morning here with the highs for the day of 79 the lows of 64 and its 78 right now.Mom got dad off to work and then she got our bean mix ready and then came in to clean our cages and sweep the floor.Mom is going to work on more chores that she was too tired to get done when she came home last night and then hopefully after she collects the trash and gets the rest of the recyclables into the car for tomorrow's dump run she will get us outside for some sunshine and showers.Its going to be another long day for her tomorrow with the errands that couldn't be finished yesterday.Other than Mom working around the house getting some things done its going to be a wonderful boring day here for us,the kind of day we don't mind at all as it keeps Mom home with us all day!
The three tiels all open their wings up wide for a big tiel wing hug and hold on tight for a long time swaying and humming happily the entire time!

Rats get all leftover food except for raw meat and any food that may have been contaminated with feces. The interns need to read and ask questions.
Well, today we are heading to Jellystone Park from the KB. Be prepared with your swimsuit, floaties, rafts, and other things. We might just run into Yogi Bear and Booboo Bear, so if you have a picnic basket, hold onto it! The ranger may not be able to save it or you from a raid.
Today at home, it's a beautiful, hot, and sunny day again. Mom will be going to the pool, and afterwards, going to the hardware store to see if she can find one of those scrunchy hoses, since she's tired of the hose caddy that leaks at the faucet every time she hooks it up. She still has one of those old Toro flat hoses, but it's not long enough, so she's hoping to attach one of those pocket hoses to it.
Mom also got in touch with her nephew who will do some outdoor stuff for her in the next couple of weeks. She decided she's too old to pressure wash and waterproof the deck (read; she doesn't want to do it!). The split rail fence is having some issues, and the porch roof needs to be swept off. Again, this is something she really doesn't want to do. She's always been a bit afraid of climbing out the bedroom window to clean that roof.
So, today is swimming, hardware store, and maybe Panera for a dinner sandwich. I hope you are enjoying a beautiful summer day too, and getting some fresh air, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Mom remembers the early days of cup holders in cars. You had to use a short cup to use them...then always worried about them spilling. And forget putting a water bottle in them. At least now they are deeper.
So glad grand had a nice birthday party at the park and that the temps were cooler. Funny how they can take a short napin the car.. then be completely recharged for the rest of the day!! Jeezzzzzz!
Hope you have a nice day!

  hat sells all kinds of jewelry,beach stuff and other things.Then they went back to Nana's and unloaded skin sis's car and had some dessert and cold water with Nana.Mom cleaned out Dixie and Candida's cages,got their harnesses back on and in the car seat and they went home after that.It was well after 5:00pm and it took Mom almost an hour to get home with the traffic bumper to bumper.When Mom came home dad unpacked the car for Mom,while Mom got dad a leftover hamburger from Sunday's BBQ.She got Dixie and Candida back in their cages while she put everything else away and got dad's things ready for the morning for work.Then she got Dixie and Candida back out to the deck to join dad for dinner,it was beginning to be a bit chilly out there but they stayed out there til after 7:00pm.Mom cleaned up the dishes from dinner,got Dixie and Candida back into their cages and now she's here helping us get our notes done and our visits in!Mom has had a long day and so has Nana.Mom is looking forward to a quiet day tomorrow and not wanting to go out in the car at all!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
So far tonight BC has been behaving and Mom hasn't gotten any slow cycling or URL error pages.And its late as Mom didn't get home til late tonight before she could start our notes to everyone.
Mom remembers back when everyone had to use the reduced lighting to save on energy and now with the new LED lighting that saves money and lights the room up much brighter we don't have to deal with the dimness anymore!
That's so funny that the hummingbirds circle your dad's head when he's in the yard knowing that he's the one who cleans and feeds them.We saw our hummingbird tonight while we were on the deck with our parronts for dinner.
We don't really care for carrots that much but if they're cut small and in matchstick form we may eat or chew on them.Dixie refused to eat again today but he did eat the fruit bowl she made for him today.Mom has to keep giving him nare flushes to open his blocked nare which keeps him from enjoying his meals!
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 77 the lows of 66 and right now at 7:30pm its 74.After Mom got dad off to work,she got our bean mix ready and then got us up early,cleaned our cages,fed us our bean mix and swept our room.Then she harnessed both Dixie and Candida and got them in their car seat and took off to Nana's.We were settled in our cages there and Nana had some fresh bean mix she made waiting for them.Then Nana got Mom a waffle ready and Mom poured herself some tea and while they ate skin sis came over.They both got into skin sis's car and went to Roche Bros. grocery store in Mashpee and Mom got 3 cases of bottled water a 28/pack for $1.88 each it was a one day sale only today,Nana got 2 cases.They got a few other things that were marked down and then went back to Nana's to drop the cases of water off so they'd be room in skin sis's trunk.Then from there they went into Falmouth to the hearing aid place so Nana could get her new hearing aids.Nana got to test drive them but couldn't take them home because she didn't bring back the first pair she had gotten.Now Mom will bring Nana up on Friday to get her hearing aids.Then from there they went to Hyannis to got to KAM Appliance to see about Nana's refrigerator,it still hasn't been working and is freezing up water in the fridge,and condensation is now in the fridge.The manager wasn't there and the employee there promised to call Nana when he came in.Nana was none too happy.From there they went to Subway to have lunch and the traffic was outrageous,there was some kind of accident on the Bridge as they were heading over to Sagamore to go to Market Basket.Mom bought some fresh fruit to share with us,10 packages of frozen veggies and we get the corn from that,and a package of eclairs.Mom got some breakfast sausages for dad's dinner when she needed something fast for dinner on her late nights.From there they went back to The Mills to drop off Mom's stuff in her freezer and then they went to The Plum Porch a little touristy place t

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope you had a great day! Gardeners were here to clean up after the tree trimmers and to trim the bushes. It was another noisy day! They had the chipper parked right behind mom but moved it when she took Jennifer to work. The guy downstairs came out and was petty upset since he was trying to sleep. It has to be done sometime and it was nearly 10 so it wasn't that early.
Ian ended up staying until 5 tonight. There were only 2 people in the store. One girl called out sick. The assistant manager was in at 7:30 and will be closing since no one else was scheduled. I think she will be having a conversation with the manager about his scheduling!!hehehehe
Mom managed to get the clearance marked in bed and bath last night. It was mostly blankets only the guy who was running the department did not merchandise them by color. They were shoved all over the place so mom had to empty the entire aisle because some of the clearance ones were behind others that were not clearance. It is merchandised by color and size now. The guy who was the lead is moving over to furniture now. Probably better since he knew nothing about bedding. The lady who use to do it is coming back. It will be easier for mom since she does her own price changes!!
Enjoy the evening!!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Yes, Luna wore aqua flowers on her collar. She did very well at the wedding but not so well at rehearsal.
The ocean was warmer than our pool. The pool was 86! It was nice and should stay this way thru end of the year.
I can't believe that the grand is 2 already! Hope we see more pics!
Not much going on here today ... back to normal. While we were gone, the new neighborlings decided to have a very loud and wild party. At least 5 neighberlings called to complain .... and I missed this! This is usually a very quiet area around here. I say we show them how birdies party ... hehehe.

A belated thanks for stopping by to wish me a Happy Hatchday last week! I had a wonderful day! Mom made me birdie bread, and I got a new toy and had a photoshoot! We are still enjoying the birdie bread, because mom made 2 loaves and froze some of it. Today mom brought me outside while she swam, so I got to enjoy some fresh air and sunshine! I really enjoy screeching at the wild birds, LOL. Goodnight! Hugs, Peatree

TODAY WAS A BIT WARMER BUT NO BREEZE. WE DIDN'T GET OUT FOR A SUNBATH AS MOM DIDN'T SLEEP WELL LAST NIGHT AND SHE WAS SO TIRED. SHE DIDN'T WANT TO TAKE A NAP IN CASE SHE WOULD NOT SLEEP TONIGHT.

THE WEEKEND WILL BE IN THE 80'S. MAY GET RAIN TOMORROW. ITS GOOD NOT HAVING THE AWFUL HUMIDITY.

THIS WEEKEND WILL BE GREAT TO HANG OUT ON THE PONTOON BOATS AT THE LAKE. SO COME ON OUT TO THE LAKE ON FRIDAY AND SPEND THE WEEKEND. THE TENTS WILL BE SET UP FOR US TO CAMP. WILL TAKE EVERYONE INTO WORK ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY IN THE PIE SHOP VAN.

Oh the corn on the cob isnt too bad since mom is used to my messes LOL.
Like your screen trap for the flies in the window!
We might not be on tomorrow so just wanted to let you know so you know we are ok and should be back on Friday again.
This morning dad was up as usual early but mom didn’t get up with him. Dad had to take some things down to the trail and was going to tell mom he was leaving but she was sound asleep so he left her sleep. Mom was really tired but got up not long after dad left anyway. It was a cool morning but I did get out in the afternoon for my sunbath after it warmed up and the sun came out.
Mom finally went to the fruit stand today and everyone was so happy to see her. She came home with a good watermelon too as well as some other fruits too.
Today skin sis and the grand came and stayed awhile. I was happy to see them and sat right with everyone and put my two cents worth in the conversations as well.

Never got why when one service goes out the others seem to go out too when they are bundled together? It sure does seem like now a days many are just doing away with a home phone and just going with cell service. Its amazing how much home phone service prices have dropped over the years.
Glad you are having cool nights there that's what really counts my mom can handle warm days as long as the nights are cool.
Okay my mom will look at those air cleaners at Target she loves that store and is always shopping there. Happy humpday have a good evening.

  Hi Pearl & Silver
She's turning two already!!??? Time flies! Is she still as cute and adorable? We want to see those pics, please.


Well, fortunately the bite on Mom's hand turned out not to be painful for as long as she thought it would. So our afternoon and evening were quite friendly. I do enjoy my "go to bed ritual", and Mom followed it precisely. If she doesn't do everything just in the exact proper order I pitch a fit, but last night she performed it perfectly.

Then this morning she hoped to get me outside at 9AM, but it was already 80 degrees. She just said the heck with it, because I had already made it clear I was not in a cooperative mood. I haven't even sat on her shoulder yet today, and here it is after 11. Very unusual for me, since I am normally a cuddler.

Wednesday is the day Mom goes to the gym in the afternoon from 4-6, although she has been coming home a little earlier since she can't finish the whole hour at zumba these days. She did her normal Monday routine yesterday, since Talyah didn't have the Monday spot available. Mom had forgotten how much more she enjoyed the Tuesday zumba over the class on Monday (different teachers). So if she ever hears back from Becky about Sunday afternoons, she might be training with her privately on Sunday, doing yoga and zumba on Tuesday, and training with Talyah at the gym followed by zumba on Wednesday afternoon and Friday morning. What is wrong with this picture? Too much time away from me!!

And now she says she needs to get her feathers cut tomorrow, which is our day off. (Yes, I know she is retired, but normally every other Thursday is an all Kiddo day). That also means a trip to the library and a bath for Gloria since they are all near each other. She could be gone for more than an hour!! Unacceptable. I think she needs another bite!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
The kissing booth field trip at Yellowstone should wrap up today, so stop by and see what other adventures we have in store. Yogi Bear and Jellystone park, anyone?
What a difference a day makes! Yesterday and the day before were oppressively humid and hot, and today it's not even 70 and cloudy. The guys said 74 and partly sunny today, so it's warming slowly. It's not raining though and we could use some again.
Last night mom and her sister went to Red Lobster for dinner. Neither of them could finish the meal, and neither of them would take shrimp home. It's never the same warmed over, is it? The funny thing was they were looking at a berry dessert and talking about splitting it before they ordered. Of course, not being members of the clean plate club, not to mention stuffed, they didn't get the dessert.
It's not going to be a very interesting day today, but that's fine with us. It means when mom gets home from the pool, she'll be ours for the rest of the day, and by then, we'll have rearranged our cages to our liking as well.
I hope you are having a great summer day, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Morning So Cal boys-from Jenny & Ms LaLo
It feels so good to have cooler temps and lower humidity for a change! This is visiting nurse day but tomorrow dad will be gone all day with three appointments with specialists at the Iowa City VA Hospital, a long boring day for him! Dad's sister will drive him there thankfully, he still don't trust his strength to hold up that long by himself! Have a happy hump day dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all soon, but probably not tomorrow...

  hi fellows !
Happy humpday ! That is if it matters . . . it doesn't to me during the summer cause mom is home ! Yesterday's rain ended early, but it never really cleared up - the day remained overcast with thick hard to breathe air. Even when taking Landon to gym it was still yucky, and that's at 3:30 ! He won't get in mom's new car through the door any more - he wants to go in through the "trunk" to get to his car seat ! Silly boy ! Hopefully today's weather will be a little better. By the weekend it's supposed to be beautiful for all the cookouts, etc. Mom and dad missed their walk two days in a row now . . .

Don't forget to go try your wing again at NAME THAT TUNE on page 231616 ! New songs every week ! Have a great day - love Cookie

  Hi Pearl and Silver,
Well I'm a little bad, but mom always catches me. :0

I step up pretty good but I get tired and mom says she wants me to step up and get some eggcercize. Then I get bored doing that so I take off towards Laka's tree, again.

Mom says that my tree will be ready for me to go venture in this weekend so I'm happy. :)

I'll have mom take a picture once I find my favorite perch. She still has to put my toys on the tree too.

She's hoping that I will be a good boy and that time will tell till I can be free all day like my fister Laka. She's never locked in her cage even if she's bad. Mom says she's well trained not to go off her tree or her cage.

Ahhh to be free.......one day. :)

Hugs and a vote for you.

Oh yes, the wedding went very well. I Skyped my flower bird walk on my computer at vet-camp. There were two flower girls, ring bearer and me ... oh yes, Luna (corgi) ... even she walked the aisle very well at the wedding. Not so much at rehearsal ... LOL!
My parronts went to the beach this morning. They said the ocean was warmer than our pool. The water was calm and clear ... a very nice beach day. Until the big nasty t-storm hit. They were soaked getting into the house. There was a lot of standing water around too. I viewed all this from my nice comfy bed.

  Hi Pearl & Silver
well we couldn't blog last night because we had no internet. yesterday mom spent lots of time at the office store xeroxing documents, then she spent time at triple A having a notary stamp papers, then she went and bought more file folders then she went back to the office store and xeroxed some more and then went to the post office to mail poa letters to health insurance and mail order pharmaceutical company for g-ma. then a guy came this morning from the Pa dept ar agriculture and sprayed the hemlocks for red spider mite infestation which he said was kiling the hemlocks. mom was very upset because she doesn't like any kind of insecticide. this morning she went to ss and it only took about 5 minutes to change Gmas mail to our house and when SS lady asked for a verification document mom had all of them with her and had to go through everything to find what the lady wanted. when mom came home she spent the rest of the day weeding the along the side of the road and trimming it with a scissor. then some guys came and cut down all 5 of our rhododendrons that were about 25 feet tall. because the the dept of pa agriculture said they had a fungus called root rot which was killing everything so they will be treating the soil next week for that. tomorrow will be a nightmare because tall timber tree co is coming to cut down 3 trees. the 50' oak will take them about 5 hours to bring down and the other 2 not too much time. mom and dad had the place looking absolutely perfect today and mom said for what. tomorrow it will look like a total disaster. mom has some babies in one bird house and figures she will just stand somewhere safe holding the bird house so the mom will come and feed the babies. hopefully the men will dig up a few of the shrubs before they bgin so they won't get damage. the tree is only about 15 feet from the house and there could potentially be damage to the house as well. anyway might not be online since a branch might cut off our power.

Mom will be getting another car in the next year or two but good to get the AC working now for the summer when its hot though.
I got my sunbath today after mom got home from getting groceries and it wasn’t as humid then, It was hot when mom first got home but by the time she put things away the humidity had went down.
Mom didn’t buy any peaches or nectarines this week at the store cause the ones she got last week weren’t very good and most were thrown away. Mom got corn at the store and we had that for supper. Mom always gives me a whole side on a cob to eat while they are eating. I get it all over my beakie. Its beak smaking good!
I don’t like those flies coming in my house! Mom and dad are always after them with the flyswatters. I do the fly around when they chase the flies. Mom is more in control but dad with a flyswatter sure isn’t!

We kind of have our service bundled here with having the wifi no home phone. Once and awhile they try and talk mom into adding home phone service but no real need for it. Like I was saying a few weeks back mom is trying to downgrade her cell phone service.
Much cooler here now feels wonderful we are only in the low 70's today and should dip down to the low 50's tonight my mom says that's great sleeping weather.
We should really get a air cleaner for our place probably would help a lot mom has looked at some sometime ago but hasn't any time recently. Have a good evening guys.
