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
I hope everybirdy will remember to go by the Milonga page #165848 and vote for their favorite four pics today, even though it is Superbowl Sunday.

Mom will be watching the game at home alone, since Dad doesn't like football much. She likes both teams, so she will be happy no matter who wins. It will definitely be a battle of the QBs, so youth vs. eggsperience? Who will come out on top? We shall see.

The Santa Ana winds continue to bring us warm temps with a high of 78 today. However with continual winds of 16-20 mph I once again am deprived of my sunbath. I am sitting in my window and yelling at the bush that is waving all over. I think there is something in there!!

  Hey Pearl and Silver!
Well, mom went online and found out what happened. This person was wanted for having a meth lab and cocaine and all kinds of drugs close to either a day care center or elementary school. He has a serious rap sheet a mile long. He was considered armed and dangerous. A police car noticed him driving down the road outside of our community back gate. The police turned around and began to follow him. The felon took off, ran off the road and into a tree. The took off running into the wood and neighborhood close to us......armed and dangerous. This was about 2pm........and we didnt get the warning until 7pm! He ws running and hiding for 5 hours before we found about that! Isnt that awful? He was captured around 9pm! Jeezzzzzzz!
Well, we are all set and waiting for the Super Bowl! WoooooHoooo!

  Hi Pearl and Silver,
Today I want to talk about where my mom is from. She grew up in a little town called Hilo pronounced (hee lo). The name of Hilo is an ancient one, its origins lost in the mists of time. One of the widely accepted origins is that Hilo was named for a famous Polynesian navigator, Hiro, perhaps in honor of his great skill in bringing his people to this rich and fertile place.

The first night of the lunar month, just following the new moon, is known as Hilo. The think crescent moon is on the eastern horizon as the sun rises, its shape reflected in the curve of Hilo Bay's crescent shaped black sand beach.

No story of Hilo is complete without mention of the three names for Hilo. Hilo-one refers to the part of Hilo fronting the black sand beach, where shoreline activities like fishing and canoe launching took place. Hilo-Hanakahi, the fertile food-producing land south of Hilo Bay was named for a beloved chief who ruled here during a time of peace. The formidable cliffs that run north from the mouth of the Wailuku River are known as Hilo-pali-ku. Hilo was considered waiwai, or wealthy, due to its abundance of fresh water.

A charming folk tale has long been told linking Hilo to King Kamehameha, a great warrior, whose chief ambition, which he lived to realize, was to become the ruler of all the Hawaiian Islands. Naturally, he had numerous enemies, and he never remained long in one place for fear that the some of them might learn about his whereabouts and attack him.

Okay now for some fun stuff. Today is Sunday and it is spelled Lapule pronounced (la-poo-lay) in Hawaiian. The month is February and it is spelled 'Ianuali pronounced (yah-new-ah-lee) in Hawaiian. Have you got it? :)

Just say it slow and it will come, soon you all will be eggsperts in speaking Hawaiian.

Tomorrrow is spelled i ka la 'apopo pronounced (ee kah lah ah-poh-poh) in Hawaiian.

We shall finish or pau/(pow) in Hawaiian with good afternoon or aloha awakea (ah-low-hah ah-vah-kay-ah)or (midday).

Mahalo a Nui Loa (ma-hah-low ah noo-ee low-ah) or Thank you very much for your love and support.

Here's a vote for you and hope you all have a great Lapule afternoon! :)

Love,

Laka Aolani, Candidate for BOTM

  Hi Pearl, Hi Silver
IT's Blue and Jewel.
Mom and dad went to the La Mirada Theater and saw "Empire", a new play that opened this weekend here before it goes on to Broadway in New York. Wow! What a great show! Mom and dad wondered how they would tell the story of the building of the Empire State Building but they did a fantastic job. To dad, the best part of the show was the scenery. They used projected images onto backdrops and it worked out great. Dad's favorite scene was the riveters. The scene required precise timing and positioning and the actors nailed, uh, riveted it Perfectly! After the play mom and dad came home and had leftover pot roast for dinner.
Today will be clear and warm, with a high of 84 and a low of 59. Mom and dad are taking the deviled eggs to mom's brother's house for a Super Bowl Sunday BBQ.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Mom usually renews in the store, this was the first (and last) time to renew online.
We now have images of pterosaurs on all of our pages. Mom tried to photograph the book on Pterosaurs, but it's shiny and that didn't work well. We got some images from the AMNH website to show everyone, and if you want to look it up for yourselves, this page shows a lot of what's in the exhibit and the book. We're just teasing you with a few images. You can go to AMNH.org/pterosaurs and see for yourself lots of what's on display. There have been about 150 different species of pterosaur fossils found, ranging in size from ones that will fit in your hand to Quetzlcoatlus northropi, which has a wing span about the length of a city bus and weighed between 180-250 kilograms! That's 550 lbs. at its heaviest. He stood about the height of a giraffe.
You might be able to access some of the short movies that are being shown, too. One big thing to remember is that they are NOT dinosaurs. They, like crocodiles and dinosaurs, all belong to the archosaur family, but they are cousins, at best. One of the things mom loved seeing is that they all had a fine hairy coating, probably to keep them warm.
I hope everyone wasn't bored by that, mom is finding them very interesting. Don't forget to vote in the milonga contest today and every day. I hope you are having a sunny day today. We are, and the temps are already in the 40s, but we know the cold is coming back soon. Make sure you get lots of attention today! Lots of cuddles and scritches should be coming your way.

  Good Sunday morning treasured friends-from Jenny
Today is Superbowl Sunday, traditionally a very fun day, but not so much this year! Dad went to the store to pick up our supplies so as to have it out of the way, he even bought a bucket of hot wings/honey wings and potato salad, yummo, we'll be getting some of that stuff! Dad has been invited to many of his friend's SB parties, but told them all he would rather just stay home with all of us! We will cheer for the Broncos and Peyton Manning, for whatever good that will do! Don't forget the puppy bowl on Animal Planet! Thank you Mary Haines for the lovely Valentine card, you have to stop being so sweet to us! Have a great day dear BC bowl friends, and give our love to all in your party home, see ya all tomorrow...

Super love from Jenny, LaLo, Ziggy, Christy, & daddy Dallas

  hello fellows
Happy Sunday ! Day three of a lovely weekend ! After what happened Friday, mom decided to check the weather each morning - now it looks like (according to the local weather channel) snow again Monday into Tuesday . . . but WeatherChannel says only 1-3 inches on Tuesday. So she still doesn't know !

Sadly, I will be in lock-up for a while today since mom and dad have some grocery shopping to do and a trip to WildBirds Unlimited for seed . . . hopefully, they'll be home early ! After all tonight's the game ! Daddy doesn't care much about either team, but there'll be good treats and snacks !

Have a lovely Sunday full of love :) Cookie

  Hi Pearl and Silver,
Tonight I want to talk about Madame Pele, the volcano Goddess of Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Legend has it that the lava flow will never come down to the Hilo side or the Kona side as long as the "Hawaiians" are in check. So to speak.

That's why there are Hula Halaus that have ceremonies at the volcano to leave offerings of food and other stuff but no hooman sacrifices. Which is good. :)

There are many legends at the volcano observatory that have written testimony from hundreds of tourists that have taken a trinket from the land and have fallen into lots of bad luck.

Be it a rock or black sand or something minute, everything from the Aina or land has to stay here. Once taken off the island the person or persons will have terrible terrible bad luck.

Many of them had since sent those things taken sent back to the island ASAP.

There are warning signs about taking anything off the island. All the written testimony proves that the legend is true.

Tourist beware, or prepare to have terrible bad luck. Indeed the Madame Pele spirit of the "Aina" or land is so true and strong.

That's like Mr. Glen Grants stories in his book "Chicken Skin" tells all and then some it's very true.

Happy weekend everyone and a vote for you too.

Love & Aloha from Hawaii. :)

Thank you for you votes and support.

The only sun the lanai sees is in the morning. So, that's not a problem. Mom wants to get the curtains on the one side for privacy from next door and she wants an outdoor rug too. It will be a while for all of that as we have other things to buy right now.
I wish that every bird had perfect weather ... we all need a break!
At least we saw sun this morning. In the afternoon, the rain started and hasn't stopped yet! I'm still waiting around wearing my swimsuit and flip flops. Looks like one more week of low 60's ....brrrrrr. The only eggciting thing we saw today was a cute brown bunny eating our lawn.

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope the day was great! I took a shower today and it felt good. I had been feeding McKenzie some of my treats and then decided that we both needed to get cleaned up! She started barking at me when I dumped the water on her so I know she really enjoyed it! She got toweled off and I just air dried!
Mom took Jennifer down to visit her dad this morning so I got some quiet time! I got another piece of my hatchday cake after lunch. It was lovely.
The rest of the day was spent chasing puppy and trying to get chores done. We are now going to relax and get my notes done and perhaps watch a movie. It is very rare for mom to have a Saturday night off so we are going to make the most of it!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
My Mom doesn't have blue ray at all.I know the skin sibs have it.I think that may be the only way to get another VCR is to get the combo with the DVD in it although Mom already has a stand alone DVD.
Skin bro and skin sis both have the car chargers for their phones and you are right that the GPS really does drain the battery pretty fast!
It was good that there were more workers there to help out during the mid part of the day and everyone was able to help out on the registers and returns when everything picked up.
There were some very tragic accidents that killed people here yesterday,well not here but in the surrounding Boston areas.One 6 yr old was out playing in the snow and a tree branch fell on her and killed her and then today we heard of a man who was outside in the storm trying to do something and a tree branch fell on him and killed him also.What is wrong with these people going out in the wind and heavy snowfall with the trees loaded with heavy snow and their branches ready to break off.My Mom never let the skin sibs out in the middle of a storm,they had to stay inside til it was over.
This morning was a bright sunny morning after the cold dark snowy stormy day we had yesterday.The highs for the day are 36,the lows 32 and right now its 30.My dad is out there plowing out the driveway and the deck and walkway to the mailbox.Mom got us up and fed us our bean mix,cleaned our room and cages and made zucchini pizza,its in the oven right now.The sun is melting some of this snow off the roads at least and hopefully off our yards and driveway.The plow guy never showed up to plow out our driveway and my dad is doing that now.Now they are telling us we'll be getting more snow and 5 inches each time on Monday and then again on Wednesday. Skin bro went down to shovel Nana's driveway out and her walkway this morning.Other than watching some of the snow melting from our window swing there's nothing exciting going on around here for today.The storm and wind yesterday and the power going out for 4 and a half hours was enough eggcitement for us for a long time!We are just too happy being warm and inside on such a cold day!Mom kept us warm inside Dixie's blanket and then she popped us inside her coat and we stayed there for the whole 4 plus hours.The house got cold so fast!
The three tiels all open their wings wide for a big group tiel wing hug and hold on tight for a long time.Soon the guitars come out and Silver begins to sing'Livin On Love'by Alan Jackson.Pearl and Peepers harmonize and join in on the chorus!
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

Mom left for 1 1/2 hrs today to get some supplies for Livi's science fair project. Mom is going to her house tomorrow morning to start working on sugar crystals. Livi is in a girls' basketball league so mom has to work around her practice schedule. I'm sure not going to like being in lockdown every time she leaves!

Mom gives me hot and sweet peppers both in with my bean/ rice mix and I like them both!
This morning I kept flying to mom and she would let me sit on her shoulder and help her. She was just messing with making a card so it was no big deal. Once she got done with that and I flew to her she held me and said I was going to get a bath since it was time so we did that . I got a pecan for my treat so it wasn’t a bad trade off and then I got wrapped in my fluffy towel and went in the bathroom when I got my feathers blow dried. Oh that sure makes a fid feel great. Of course I kept thinking all day and begging too for another pecan but mom wouldn’t budge…if only I could get that refrigerator door open I would help myself!! “Our hearts decide who is family” Leaving a vote for you ..Frothter, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Yep, the voting has begun in the February Valentine's Milonga Pic Contest (hefty title, isn't it?). We are already getting lots of votes, so I want to thank all the voters and remind everybirdy else to get their tailfeathers on over to page #165848 and support your favorites. There are four categories, so four votes per flock per day. That's a lot of votes between now and the 17th, so get busy.

It is nice here today, but so far not quite warm enough to get outside. However tomorrow they are predicting a high of 80, with 80 or a little more through Friday. The warm weather is greyt for my sunbaths, but there is not a drop of rain in that forecast. That is not a good thing at all.

Mom got her new book from Amazon to replace the one I chewed up, so she will be making a run to the library today. I will be losing her for an hour or so, and nobirdy to blame but myself. Phooey!

We finally got some pics posted of the new chair: the first pic in the gallery is a close up of the pattern, but doesn't show the colors well, so the second one is the colors. The pillow on there is one mom cross stitched a few years ago. The third pic is mom's left hand, new polish.
Mom was at the museum today doing another spotlight of Archaeopteryx for a couple of hours. It was much more relaxed than last week, though. She only saw about 90 people. It's always fun to do those spotlights, because there are lots of interesting questions and comments.
The weather today is in the mid 40s, it's really sunny and pretty, too. We think that's not going to last long, though we can't complain about winter this year. It's been really mild.
Now that mom is home, she's ours, all ours, for the rest of the day! We hope you will all go to the milonga page and vote every day for each category. If you don't have the page number, go to my aviary and hit the biggest avatar, the pink and purple one.

My mom says thank you for the information she will have to get on iTunes and play around that is if she can fingure figure it out. Now she has to get on it directly from her ipod since her laptop hardly ever works.
Think we could get a inch or two of snow tomorrow evening then Monday as well but we will see.

Mom and dad stayed home yesterday and just puttered around the house. They did laundry and made 35 deviled eggs for Super Bowl Sunday at mom's brother's house. the eggs will last about 20 minutes. Dad did a little bit more cleaning and put clean sheets on the bed. Then he grilled New York steaks for dinner.
Today will be clear and warm, with a high of 80 and a low of 55. Mom and dad are going to the La Mirada theater so see a musical about the building of the Empire State Building. It's called Empire.
Hope your day is fun.

  hi guys !
Remember yesterday I told you no snow in the near future ? Well, listen to this ! Mom finished my blogs yesterday morning and peeked out the window - there were a few flurries, as predicted, so she got ready to get in the shower. By the time she got out the sky was white ! Snow ! Fast and furious ! The phone rang . . . 2 hour delay. So mom made blueberry scones for me and dad . . . it was still snowing like crazy when the phone rang again - SNOW DAY ! Three day weekend ! We had a great lazy day . . . skritches, fetch and television - I even got one of the blueberries :)

Today is heading up to the mid to upper 30's so lots of it should melt. Another shot of it on Tuesday - mom's been dvr'ing reruns of the JOHNNY CARSON show to see in the morning (since she can't stay awake to watch them at night like when she was a kid) Maybe she needs to watch the WeatherChannel instead ! !

Have a great day and don't forget, today is the last day to try your wing at the love songs over at NAME THAT TUNE on page 231616 !

Love to you :) Cookie

  Hi Pearl and Silver,
Sorry I didn't get my blog out today as mom had an interview lunch time and they made her wait for a few minutes then told her to come back in 15 minutes. Plus mom had to feed the meter but forgot her phone at work so she drove a block and then came back. She had to kinda walk far so when she came home she took a long birdie nap.

She didn't get up till 6 pm, what a snoozer I tell ya!

So tonight I'm gonna talk about Iolani Palace that's in town.

It's full of antiques and portraits of the past king and queens and other Hawaiian descendants also.

Mom took a ghost walking tour one night long time ago and one stop was at the palace and the tour guide was a renound ghost guy.

At one end where the princess was being held he said you could smell her perfume blowing in the breeze. And everyone on the tour could smell it and got chicken skin. Down the street was an old building that was an old morgue back in the day and that's why people in that building has eggsperienced things moving or missing.

The spirits are alive and moving there. Mom never worked in that building, well not since she heard about that.

The ghost tour ended up in the graveyard in town which was appropriate being a ghost tour an all.

Mom enjoyed it and so did her friends.

In my gallery you can see the palace and also other pictures.

Now you know if you ever go by the palace on the east side corner, try and see if you can smell the princess perfume. You'll be amazed, mom was. :)

That's all for tonight as my typist is getting sleepy.

More tomorrow and I thank you for your votes and support.

Here's a vote for you also.

Love and Aloha,

Laka Aolani, BOTM Candidate

HAPPY TGIF DAY
this is not an infomercial. mom was very excited when she found this website. tired of being in a culture of waste and contributing to the massive landfill dilemmas. remember when products from the 50's lasted forever and if you are lucky enough to still own any chances are they are still working. now their is a website that only stocks products that guarantee they will last a lifetime
Tired of replacing stuff? Buy Me Once solves that problem. i suggest you check it out. they don't carry everything and are interested in know about things you think are excellent products.

all the compnieson this website stand by their products.
the website is buymeonce.com

love Boo Boo

Mom just thought it would look more like a room with the one side having an outdoor curtain. I think they are made by sunbrella. Yes, 3 sliders (patio doors) open onto the lanai. Mom also wants one of those outdoor rugs. Can't get everything at once :( Working on living room ... new sofa comes on Wednesday.
Yes, the metal hurricane shutters cover all the windows and doors .... then, make like a wall to enclose the lanai. That way, if needed, you can fill up the lanai with things like bar-b-que, deck box, lawn chairs etc.
It was sunny today but no pool for us. I'm sitting on my perch wearing my flip flops and waiting for the warm weather. They say we'll have 60's (62 to 65) for another week, so sad. Even the plants aren't happy with too much rain and cold. I think we have to move further south, maybe St Thomas ... LOL!

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope you both had a great day. My Hatchday was wonderful. Ian and Jennifer took mom out for her birthday and she brought back some tortillas for me! I got a lovely piece of white cake and mom found a chocolate vegan cake at Safeway. It is small and pricey but making vegan bakery stuff usually calls for lots of ingredients we don't usually have so it was worth it.
Ian had to work a late shift yesterday and got none of his own work done since he was on the customer service desk all day. Guess they were shorthanded also.
Mom got McKenzie one of those rawhide bones today and there was silence here for over an hour! It was wonderful! I was getting pretty tired of hearing that squeaky toy for hours on end!! Mom should really buy a whole bunch of them!
Have a wonderful evening!! Leaving a vote and a big hug for you both!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Yes need to have the mind made up before you stop for a blizzard !! Most people probably have a favorite or three and pick from them I would imagine.
Mom is going to call around at local stores and see if any of them sell the amish roll butter.
Kiddo says to put hot peppers on the suet and it wont bother the birds but the mammals will get a hot mouth and leave it alone so the parronts will probably try that soon. Its up really high now but hard for dad to reach it and needs to use the backhoe.
This morning mom and I washed clothes and sheets and then we dusted and swept up the floor. I supervised from her shoulder and know she would of not done as good of a job with out my help. When mom was all done with that she got my lunch and then started cleaning the refrigerator and the freezer on the frig too. There was lots of nuts up in the freezer and other goodies that I kept trying to get my beak into. Once that was all cleaned out mom started taking all the shelves out and every thing on the shelves. By then dad kept coming into the kitchen and being in moms way too. Mom suggested he take me and go in some other room so she could get done LOL. Finally it was all done and put back together again even with mine and dads help LOL. “Our hearts decide who is family” Leaving a vote for you ..Frothter, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Every flock gets one vote per category per day, so we will have lots of voting hopefully.

Well, Mom went to the GI doc yesterday, and as expected she will need to have an endoscopy. He also wants to put in a small wireless device that measures pH to monitor her acid for 2-3 days, but Mom is pretty sure the insurance people will not approve that. It is very leading edge, and insurance is always trailing edge.

It was warm enough for a sunbath today (73), but the wind is absolutely howling out there. I do not like the wind, so I am staying inside. It is supposed to be even warmer tomorrow and for the next week or so. Surely this wind will die down, and I will be able to catch some rays.

Today was the last day to enter the pic contest for the Valentine's Milonga. Entries will be closed in a couple of hours, but we have some wonderful pics entered, eggspecially in the Couples category. You can see the names of the entries now, and we will put up the pics by this evening. We are still missing one pic, but hopefully will have it in time.

My mom didn't know you could that rateva song with stars then later check it in iTunes she will have to try that. There are some songs she use to like so got them but ehen hears them now doesn't like them as much so would be nice to not hear them as much or at all.
Looks like next week we will get a little bit colder but nothing to crazy like below zero.
My mom says thank you for the birthday wishes. She's having a nice day today celebrating her birthday 
. She had lunch with her parronts then her and her mom went for facials they and a little shopping now mom should be mine the rest of the day. Maybe we will even get a little pizza later. Dad's at work until 11 tonight so they will celebrate tomorrow evening. Have a good evening .

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Mom will have to check out Target she was just there a few weeks ago for the VCR.So far everywhere that Mom has been has been DVD players and even those are getting to be scarce.I think like you said most people have a DVR with their cable companies now deleting the need for any VCR's.You're right that we are all getting used to not being able to edit,delete eggstra blogs etc.
Mom was surprised that the GPS system in dad's car worked properly up and back but you are right about the GPS systems having to be updated as skin bro has a TomTom and he hasn't used it in years as it needs to be updated and he doesn't want to spend the $$$'s on the updates.He has his phone with the GPS on it so he uses his phone all the time for everything anyway.
Its always good to be busy for Aunt Karen at work so the time goes by but to be down a person makes it harder to keep on top of things!
Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and gave us our bean mix,then she got a call from my dad,he's been calling Mom all night long,to tell her that she should be staying home today and not going out as the weather is really bad out there.It was pouring rain all night and has been since all day yesterday.The wind is really strong,moving the branches of the trees all the way down and up.The rain has since changed to snow and everything is getting covered with white heavy wet snow,its already getting icy out there and the temperatures are going to drop which will make everything treacherous on the roads.Our highs for the day are 35 with the lows of 24 and right now its 32.It's a very dark as night day here,dismal,dreary and windy.Skin sis called to tell Mom that they took her off the floral arrangements(she's a florist)and have her on the registers as all the silly people are flooding in to buy groceries in the storm.You would think they would stay home in such hazardous weather conditions.Dad already told Mom a car slid off the road and went into the woods.Our end of town is the worst he told us,he's been out driving around inspecting the roads his fellow employees have been plowing and salting.They changed the forecast from 1-3 inches to 3-5 inches and its snowing so fast and furious here and the wind is making the view so hard to see anything but white outside the windows.It will be another dark boring day here while Mom works around the house but she's home with us and we're happy!
The three tiels all open their wings wide for a big group tiel wing hug and hold on tight for a long time.Soon the tiel frothers grab guitars as Pearl begins to sing'(Do You Love Me)Just Say Yes'by Highway 101 with Silver and Peepers harmonizing.

Mom got that notice that her B&N membership was about to expire, so she tried to renew it online. The renewal was treated like a new membership, including sending her a new card. She was okay with that, but it also came with a letter telling her she would auto renew every year, and since it was 'new' it took about a week away from her old membership. Those were the problems. She got the auto renew taken away, and is still waiting to hear if she'll get the lost days back.
We had a few snow flurries this morning, but it's all clear and sunny now. It's supposed to warm into the mid 40s tomorrow, too, but today's high is only around 38. It's been a mild winter so far.
This morning mom and Asmita, another volunteer, had the Runs to clean. That is an area where some of the education animals live, and there are some rehab patients in there too. The education animals in there are the turkey vultures, Sid, Vince, and Tony, and the 5 turtles. There are also some snapping turtles in there, a beautiful male mallard, a porcupine, and a broad winged hawk. It's always an interesting place to clean, because you never know who's going to be in there.
Mom is going out to dinner tonight with her sister, but she's ours for the rest of the day. We put some of our latest reads on the library page for anyone who's interested. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Pearl, Hi Silver.
It's Blue and Jewel.
Dad had an early appointment at the wound center yesterday so we were unable to blog with all of you. Sorry about that. Dad's leg continues to improve. Dad is having only a small amount of pain now. In fact, if he's busy with stuff he forgets all about it.
Mom and dad went to the movies yesterday and saw "The Good Dinosaur". What a wonderful movie! The animation was incredible and the story line was beautiful. Even dad got a little misty eyed. After the movie they went to Costco to pick up some stuff for dinner and some already cooked and pealed eggs. Mom and dad are making deviled eggs to take to mom's brother's house for a Super Bowl Sunday BBQ.
Today will be clear, with a high of 75 and a low of 51. No more rain in sight for at least another week.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.
