Hi! My name is Zippy; V4 Panther # 245632

I am a Cockatiel from Lansing, MI.

Zipperoo, Zip-Dip, Zipper bird

17 years old   F

Cockatiel

ANYTHING edible, POPCORN

In the circle of the UHF antenna, Polly's cage where there's food, foraging on the playstand.

Being stuck in the cage to keep me away from quaker Polly. Being on a perpetual diet, the vet says to keep my weight reasonable.

No the owner, but the children--they take me for showers, let me sit on their computer screens, let me play with the computer keys. Mom just feeds me and gives me treats, and housekeeps.

Riding on shoulders looking backwards, when out of cage always foraging in her legos..

FOOD!.

  Hey Zippy
Are you in the KB ??? Cool... I'll be there !!!

Happy Tuesday !!!

The puter is fixed for now and my skin sis will be typing my blogs for me as I dictate to her while I'm sitting on my mommys shoulder preening my mommy's hair.

Thank you all for sending your heart felt prayers and get well wishes to my mommy. The surgery went well and was way better than her last surgery. Now she's resting her shoulder and making the skin sibs do everything.Heehee !!!

My blogs will be short and they will get to the point. I'm trying to squeeze in as much as I can for my campaine and for you...

Today I'm taking you to a very touchy subject. Something most hoomans don't like to think or talk about but it's real and part of our circle of life...

Traditionl Northern Cheyenne Burials.

In my tribe the color white is the color of death. We use white when our loved ones go to the other side.
Burial clothes are made with soft white doe hide and the moccasins are baby soft.
The reason for this is when we all go to the other side we walk into the light where its all white and bright.When we arrive in the consel of elders with MAH-HEY-YOH we arrive being born again. Thats the reason why we use soft buckhide as soft as a baby's skin.

Black is the color of power and red is the color of life that runs through our veins.

When a tribal member or loved one goes to the other side we bathe them for their journey and bless them. We mourn for four days and nights, Some of us may cut ourselfs to ease the pain of the loss and some of us cut our hair to ease the pain of our loss. In my tribe long hair is an honor to have especially with the men.

After four day's and nights of mounrning we bury our departed one sitting up so when they arrive in the counsel of elders they will be sitting in the sacred circle with them. Mah-Hey-Yoh will then judge the our departed who has moved on to the other side.

Our tribal medicine man and holy man will then pray for four day's and nights. After they recieve thier answer they will tell us which consel or departed ones will go into.All of our departed will forever be happy and not suffer. We will then have a celebration with lots of food for them.

This is part of my world that not too many people outside of my tribe know about...
I'm sharing this with you.
Remember death is part of life in our circle. Be good,Do good and never lie or hurt or harm anyone. Always listen to our creator and obey his words to us. If you listen closely will hear a soft gentle loving voice whispering in your ear. You will know it's the creator. And also always remember in time of war when we are forced to kill we will be held in high honor here in this world and up in the stars where we all will be. There's never an end to life.
There's always a new beginning...

Thank you for your votes
Love Panther

PS...Hang around for more blogs !!!

  Hi Zippy
I love that pic of you and Pepper in the KB!
We are in a streak of good weather here. It's gonna be another bright sunshiny day, so mom will be heading out at noon for a few hours at the pool. Everything will need watered soon if it doesn't rain, though. This is going to present a problem, since the hookup for the hose is in the garage with the new cabinets. Mom doesn't want to have any water in the garage until the cabinets are out of there. She can't do laundry until they are moved, either, since the dryer vents into the garage.
The other day mom won a little basket at the pool fundraiser. She thought at first glance that it was tea, but when she opened it yesterday, there was pasta, sauce, some candies, a gift card, and one box of tea. The good thing is that it's English Breakfast tea, which mom likes. She is starting to pick tomatoes from the planters, too! We got some Siberian ones and a couple of indigo blues yesterday. Mom put pesto on them for a little salad, and they were delicious.
I hope you are having a great day today and getting lots of love. Hugs, Peppino

I hope you are having a fun day! Sounds like you had some yummy snacks already! I have some pizza crust since Jennifer ordered a pizza when she got home last night! I got my apple later on but I decided to take a shower and soaked it and my cracker! I wonder if I can get mom to give me another one????
Mom agrees with your mom! 70's are just perfect! We use to live in Mohave desert in CA and mom hated it! It would be 122 by 10am and you couldn't get anything done because it was just too hot! Mom use to see the temps on the new and saw that Seattle was always in the 60's or 70's so when dad got offered a job up here mom said YES!hehehehehehe
I hope you all stay cool and enjoy the day!

I hope you are having a fun day! I supervised the turtle tank cleaning and now I am sharing some oatmeal with mom. I have dried cranberries in mine and she has raisins in hers. I don't like raisins much.
The rest of our morning will be spent cleaning bathrooms and finishing up the laundry. Not very exciting but it has to be done. We finally got some rain back so I am enjoying that. Who knew I would end up missing rain???
I have my gifts for my elders and am going to drop them off at the Milonga page. I'll be there but will be silent cause mom will be sleeping!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!

Ms BB
Do I need to do up a KB photo?
I've been thinking about what you have been thinking about what to do at the KB.
Yes we can go to the castle lake and take out the yachts and pirate ship, then play with the lake monsters.

And we can go into the woods cause its cooler and (maybe get Boo Boo to eat some of the pesky insects).
Of course there should be a day to play beach volleyball and have a bon fire to roast hot dogs & make smores.

In line skating with water guns? How much more fun could a bird ask for
Food? There is always 'gourmet' food at the food tent!!

Can your Mom make you a picture? My DaD CAN SEND YOUR mOM A BUNCH OF BACKGROUND PITS TO CHOOSE FROM. oR SHE CAN MAKE ONE FROM SCRACH. Arrrggggg, that darn cap lock button!!!!!

Happy TGIF !!!

Before I say anything I would like to introduce you to my second oldest brother Circling Eagle Bigfoot...He's the dancer on my profile picture. My mommy made everything he's wearing.
We all call him Eagle for short heehee !!!
Eagle is my second oldest skin bro. And on this picture he was only 7 years old. The elders in my family taught him to dance the right way.
He's a Northern Traditional dancer and being on the Powwow Trail all his life he started winning in Powwow dance competitions all over the US.
He is also well known and respected throughout the Powwow circut and Native American land.

My mommy went to Bank of America in Norco and she saw a painting of him on the banks wall.
It said young Native American boy. My mommy contacted the artist Francis Frazier who took a picture of him dancing and she said she had been working on painting his picture for many years and his picture traveled all over the U.S with her...
Anyway my mommy wanted to buy the picture from Francis but she said it was sold to a customer who wanted it. BUMMMER !!!
She told my mommy she would have given it to her...

Let me get back on track now heehee !!!
I'm going to talk to you about Powwows.
There is Northern protocol and Southern protocol Powwows. My tribe is Northern so our powwows we go to are all Northern protocal Powwows...

We have a variety of dance catagories such as Northern Traditional, Northern grass dance, Men's Northern fancy dance...
The women have womens Northern traditional buck hide or cloth dresses, Jingle dress dance, and womens Northern Fancy shawl dresses...

Some powwows are traditional and social and some powwows are contest and pay off with big money to the winners...

At Powwows we eat lots of fry bread and Native American tacos and chili stew. At night we are still eating frybread with hot coffee
or hot cocoa.
Every Powwow we went to we always met lots of powwow buddy's who stays our buddy's for life.
Some Powwows last all weekend and some over night.
Being there is awesome and magical with lots of love between different tribes.
A powwow with different tribes are called intertribal...

Thank you for your votes
Love Panther

Tomorrow I will continue with the singers and drummers at Powwows

We like to sleep near each other. It is a wonder we don't startle each other more but guess we're so used to each other that it takes the earthquake shaking to cause a fall.

Mostly we ignore any birds or other critters that make noise outside. Though occasionally something will set us off. Pearl normally manages to land on a curtain rod but Silver will tire and end up on the curtain itself or other iffy item to perch on. Then he can't figure out how to launch to fly again so a parront will have him step onto their hand and then back to the birdhouse.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hey Zippy and Polly
I'm not sure of that one. Contact Kiddo he should know...

Happy Thursday !!!

Because of lack of time I have to make this blog short and to the point !!!

The Battle of little Big Horn... Custers last stand...

In late 1875 Cheyenne and Sioux Warriors were mad over the continued raids of Custer and his men going into our sacred lands and the black hills...

Our tribes gathered in Montana with great War Chiefs ready to fight for our tribes and our lands.
The following Spring two victories over the U.S calvary gave us strengh and spirit to fight on.

In the summer of 1876 was Custers last stand...
Custer and his men came to raid our camps and kill more of us.
Thinking there was only women, elders and children there they rode their horses into a trap !!!

As they approached what they thought was a camp with women, elders and children they got surrounded and out numbered by warriors from my tribe and the Sioux...

On that day only 60 warriors were killed and 262 men with Custer were killed in less than an hour.
What a time of victory it was for us !!!

History say's that Custer's body was found unmutilated and naked.
No thats not the truth...Custers body was never found !!! He was seen being killed. By our Warriors. But his body never found...
Some beleive that Custers body was put into a mass grave with his fallen men !!!
He dose not deserve a decent burial with honors and recognition.
Custer was by all means a coward and a cold blooded killer !!!

To this day the warriors have passed down from generation to generation. The sacred hat and clothing that belonged to Custer.
He was stripped naked when he died so the warriors could stake claim and victory !!! One of our tribe's are the keepers of the sacred hat...I can't tell you who because of the sacred vow of silence we made in those matters...

So the elders told us that's what really went down.Generations upon generations of our families have been told the real truth.
Trust me your hearing this first hand from real elders that were there and witnessed the battle. We are the real deal !!!
This is told the same way from generation to generation.

To this present day my tribe will go to the sight where we won victory over Custer and offer sage to our fallen warriors.
When it's quite we can hear the ghosts screaming out in the battle field and when we close our eyes the spirits of our fallen Warriors will take us with them on the battle feild and we can see things that went down that nobody outside of our tribes can see...

Like we all say History is a lie agreed upon. How do these so called historians know if they were not there ??? They just agree upon things because they don't know...They all guess at it and agree upon it.

Thank you for your votes

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! Yes! No one seems to be able to get ahead these days. A lot of people had to take lower paying jobs just to get a job and all those people who fought to get the 15$ an hour are now going to have to pay more rent. These big companies always seem to find a way around it. Even if they do the rent control now we still have a big increase to pay for! Mom told the kids they are going to have to pay more money. They have both been working for a while and can afford it. They would never be able to have their own place for what they pay here and they know that! Dad was pretty upset but mom told him that the kids are going to make up the difference to it's all good!
I think a 2nd lunch is a fabulous idea! I had some corn bread and then took a shower and got some apples and then took a shower and got a cracker! I think I am learning to like taking showers!hehehehehe

Mom is happy that the next few days are supposed to be like yesterday, only warmer. Yesterday it was in the mid 70s, and today it's heading into the 80s, but it's dry for a change. We are supposed to see some dry weather for the next few days. One of Mom's hibiscus bushes bloomed yesterday, she posted the blossom on FB. 2 more bushes have buds, but no blooms yet.
Today is another good day for the pool, tomorrow mom has a mammogram scheduled, and they are delivering the cabinets, so maybe not a pool day, then Saturday if the weather holds, it's another great day for pool!
Please keep Dixie's family in your thoughts and prayers today. Hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi, Zippy
It is good to get relief from the heat however possible. When mom was a kid her house had a/c but only in the main part of the house. The bedrooms would all be hot and very hard to sleep. There was a fan but it didn't do much.

Not sure but mom thinks if we were housed separately we might not even fall off the perches. She thinks one of us startles the other and then both of us tumble. Still, she is glad we remain mostly asleep and doesn't have to calm us down.

  Hello Zippy~~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still cooler here and it feels wonderful. We are suppose to get some rain later too! It feels more like what the Northwest should feel like.
We are getting chores done today since mom did not do much this last week! It's catch up time and I have to say it's pretty boring. I want to come out of my play cage but mom has to take Jennifer to work so I have to wait until she gets back! I don't know why she doesn't trust me to be out when she is gone!hehehe
Mom tried calling dad this morning but he didn't pick up. He'll call back later. She needs to tell him that our rent is going up nearly $200. He is going to be pretty upset but everywhere in town is the same. Mom and Ian checked out all the places around here online and most are even higher. We are still going to be $50 below what new renters have to pay. They are talking about rent control in Seattle so every other city is kicking up the rents before that happens here. It's sad since they finally got the $15 minimum wage in Seattle and now everyone is going to have to pay more for rent. Things will never get better for people if they keep raising how much everything costs!
I hope your day is just perfect and that you get to do lots of fun stuff!

  Hey Zippy and Polly
Happy Humpday !!!

I had a change of dates for The Gathering of Elders PowWow...It will be on the milonga page on Saturday July 25th...Indian time heehee !!! I'll let you know what time when we get it set up.

Anyone who knows an elder or if you are an elder please go to the milonga page and leave the elders name and page number.

Also if any of you would like to adopt an elder or more please go to the milonga page and leave your name and page number and who you would like to adopt.

Because of lack of time I'm going to take you through a quick truth about the Custer and the 7th calvary battle. The blogs are kind of short but true.These are true accounts passed down from generation to generation of elders in my tribe and elders in my family who was actually there. NOT HISTORY BOOKS !!!

Eyewitness accounts of The battle of little BigHorn...

When the 7th calvary made their way to Native American land they came with one intent. Genecide ,wipe us out !!!
They would wait for the warriors to leave camp and go on hunting parties. Then Attack !!!

The Women,children and elders would always stay behind and wait.
Once they were left alone Custer and his army of killers would raid our camps with no warriors there to defend the women,children and elders.

Custer had no mercy on my tribe and family. Custer and the 7th calvary would rape and kill the women and torture them and the elders by skinning them alive and make lamp shades and tents from their skin.They would throw babies and children in the fire alive and laugh as they screamed in agony and they had the nerve to laugh at them while they went through this torture dying.

My great,great,great grandfather had told my family and tribe on how they could smell burning flesh for miles and miles away. By the time the warriors would come back home from their hunting parties the whole camp would be burned down to the ground and everyone was dead.

For many generations Custer was called a hero. Do you call that a hero ???

This is a heartfelt series I'm sharing with you and my mommy stops to cry while typing thses blogs for me as she remembers the truth that has been told to her and tribal and family members for generations.

When Custer and his army of cowards won a war it was called a victory. When any of the Native Americans won the war it was called a slaughter.

All this would lead to the Battle of Little Bighorn...

To be continued tomorrow...

Thank you for your heartfelt votes and listening to the voices of our elders...

Love Panther

  Hi beach volley ball Zippybuddy-from Jen Lynn
We have been blessed with the most amazing Summer weather here for the past few days, and we are loving it! Regarding dad's Orthopedic visit, he was told he is caring for his left leg very well, and his doctor was impressed, he don't have to go back for three months, yippee! He also did some bank business, bought some insect traps( we have tons of the tiny fruit flies), and even got a haircut, and he needed it! He also stopped at McDonald's and bought me a small order of french fries, unsalted of course!

  Hi, Zippy
Often in summer nighttime temps do not drop low enough to feel cool. So far so good as very tough to sleep when too warm. The hot/humid has subsided here to more normal summer. Glad it only last a couple of days as that's about all mom can deal with at a time.

Yuck to skeeters. Not sure how many is around here without as much water for 'em to breed in. No one wants to catch west nile or whatever other nasty things they spread.

How fun to see the bunnies and the deer and to hear some parrots too.

Had a lil earthquake in the middle of the night yesterday. We're fine but it knocked us off our perches. We went right back to sleep since it wasn't even 3am yet and wayyyy too early to get up.

Panther asked all of us to select four elders (any fid over 15) so we are picking you as one of our four. Hope that is okay.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. It's cooler and cloudy here and I'm loving it.
It's our weekend so mom took a nap when she got home this morning. I had my English Muffin in my night cage and played with a toys while she slept. She has had to go out a few times but she's home now and we are trying to figure out what to make for dinner. Anything with corn bread sounds good to me!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!
Good luck with getting Polly's pellets! I know with molting you have to be very hungry! I'm the same way!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hey Zippy and Polly
Happy Tuesday !!!

We had a total of three blackouts...I hope that's all over with...We enjoyed the rain so much. It's clean and fresh and SO-CAL needed it !!!

Today I'm going to talk to you about the Gathering of elders...

Almost all Native American tribes love their elders...
On my rez we have a special day for our elders called the Gathering of elders. We do this once a year to honor and appreciate our elders.
On this special day we shower our elders with gifts,food and lot's of love.

Our elders are like diamonds to us and without them our traditional ways and culture would be gone forever. They tell us everything that happened generations ago so we can pass it on and it never get's lost.

If our tribe has an elder with no family we take them in and they spend the rest of their life with the family that takes them in.
We make sure they are happy,well cared for and loved.
We never send our elders to a retirement home as in some cultures they do that.

We never disrespect an elder and we never talk back. They deserve great respect and love and honor. We love them all !!!

Tomorrow I will be posting names of BC elders on my page.

Please adopt an elder and give me your name and their name. You will be able to hang out with them on The Gathering of elders day that will be on Friday the 24TH...

You may adopt a total of four elders per flock or bird and the same elder can also be adopted by different flocks...This is in no way a competition. It's all about our elders and the love we have for them.
If any of you know an elder or are an elder please give me the name so I can put you on my page tomorrow.
You must be 15 years old and up. We are going by bird years not hooman years heehee !!!

After all it's their day !!! Let's make it a special celebration for them !!!

Thank you for your votes
Love
Panther

I will try to get their pictures posted in my gallery !!!

Come visit me, Jedi luvs Cheyenne forever...Thanks for botd...., Snowflake luvs her Apache..., Tweety luvs Princess... & PANTHER...VOTE FOR ME FOR BOTM !!!.

  Hi Zippy
So we just heard, the cabinets are coming this week (we knew) but the work won't be done until August 10! Mom is really upset, now she has to leave her car on the street for 3 weeks while waiting to get the work done, because the cabinets will have to be stored in the garage. Hugs, Peppino

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.

  Hi Zippy
No more rain for us and what we got can't really call it rain. At least those in Southern CA got some measureable rain and hope it helps all the plants and wildlife there.

Continues to be hot/humid but never got over 90, whew! So it didn't feel that bad. We hope temps here drop but at least it is cooler at night.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Zippy
I haven't shredded any boxes ever, but some of those in the dining room look tempting! We are all tired of the clutter, but mom tells us it will be over sooner than we think. We hope that's true (and so does mom, haha). Hugs, Peppino

  Hey Zippy and Polly
The weather geeks on the news were wrong.They said light showers?

So sorry about the delay. We had another power outage that lasted all day,all night and almost all morning.We got slammed with rain and my backyard had three feet of water in it. We loved it !!!
Don't forget to fly by the KB to the KB to join in Sky and BB'S wedding celebration. There's lots of good food and fun !!!

Trick marriage continued...

Kiddo tells his brothers Cappy,Pearl and Silver to ride ahead of him so he can keep an eye on them.

Kiddo follows his brothers back to camp and he goes straight to Tall Bulls lodge. Kiddo presents Tall Bull with his gift. Tall Bull asks Kiddo to tell him about his gifts.
Kiddo says a pure white mustang is sacred. I'm bringing back four of them to you to complete the four directions.

But most of all the love they have for each other is pure. And the bond they have as a family is sacred.I rescued them and kept them together. Everything is sacred and pure...

Tall Bull smiles and say's you did good. You also rescued your brothers from our enemies the Crow Nation.You are brave and honorable...

You have my blessings to marry Sweet Pepper !!!

Kiddo invites Sweet Pepper over to eat and talk.
Sweet Pepper arrives not knowing whats going to happen.
Kiddo makes her a meal and he watches her eat it.
When she's finished Kiddo picks her up and kisses her.
He then carries her to the front door of his lodge and both their families and the whole tribe gives them their blessing..

Sweet Pepper asks Kiddo what's going on ???
Kiddo gently smiles at Sweet Pepper and say's we are married. I tricked you by making you a meal and you ate it !!!

Sweet Pepper say's a trick marriage ??? Kiddo hangs his head wondering how mad she is at him. But to his surprise Sweet Pepper
Gives him a big kiss and say's I was wondering if you loved me. I'm happy cause I love you too !!!

The happy couple look out the door of their lodge and see Jen and Kacey smiling at them.

Kiddo's three brothers Cappy,Pearl and Silver are playing drums for them while everyone puts gifts in front of their lodge.

Kiddo say's this is a good marriage and we will be together forever...

Thank you for your votes
Love
Panther

  Hi, Zippy
The humidity wasn't too bad. Our area got about 5 min of rain. Knew we wouldn't get much but know other areas of CA got a good drenching.

We are staying cool with the a/c. It has been cooling off at night too so can open the windows at night.

That is good the couple received so many things to set up their new household.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hello Zippy~
I hope you are having a great day! It's hot here again so I took a shower! Feeling pretty good!
Mom had chores to get done this morning. The kitchen and the bathrooms were pretty messy and no one else did any cleaning. It's usually like that unless dad is home. He helps clean.
Dad is in Maryland right now and he is picking up Monster Trucks! Isn't that fun? They have to be in Connecticut by
9 AM tomorrow so he'll be driving all night. He likes that better anyway since there is less traffic! I wouldn't mind seeing what a Monster Truck looks like but they are in trailers so dad won't even see what they look like!
I hope you have a nice peaceful Sunday just like me!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hey Zippy and Polly
Happy Sunday !!! Our power finally came back on but I don't know for how long...We are expecting more rain today and Monday. Hopefully with no power outages. We love the rain and we need it...

Trick marriage continued...

As Kiddo walks in the crow camp it's quite and all his enemies are sleeping. Kiddo looks around and starts planning on a rescue plan for the white mustang family...
Kiddo prays and asks Mah -Hey-Yoh to guide him and help him. There are hundresds of Crows there and only one of him. Being the strong Brave Warrior he is he walks around the crow camp with pride.

Kiddo say's to himself I can't figure this out. There's so many of them and only one of me !!!
Suddenly Kiddo hears three small voices whispering Kiddo help !!!

Kiddo looks around and he finds his brothers Cappy, Pearl and Silver tied up to a wooden stake. Kiddo quickly runs over to them to let them go. Kiddo say's why are you three here taken prisoners by the Crow ??? Cappy tells Kiddo we followed you to help you... In our dreams we saw you getting eaten by the Crows!
We also saw you in your sleep holding on to your medicine pouch asking that you get home safely so you can marry Sweet Pepper. Kiddo asks did you say anything to Sweet Pepper ??? This is a trick wedding.All three brothers say no.

Kiddo say's I want you to distract the crows and take three of their fastest War Pony's. I will meet you on top of the mountain under the hidden tree.Stay there and wait for me and stay out of trouble !!!

Kiddo sits behind the corral where the white mustang family is trapped.Cappy,Pearl and Silver jump on three of the crows fastest war ponies and call the Crows out !!! The Crows start to chase the three brothers into the hills. Kiddo quickly jumps on the white mustangs son and he leads the mother and daughter out of the corrals.

After they are out of the crow camp Kiddo opens his medicine pouch and throws clear shining stones in his brothers direction. The stones turns into a big shield and puts protection around his brothers so they can make it home safely.

Trick marriage continued tomorrow and following Trick marriage will be Sky and BB's wedding tomarrow...

Thank you for your votes Love Panther

  Hi Zippy
The bears come through like weekly...it's their original feeding grounds, so you put up with the big oafs...but we always tattle when they are outside and mom always shouts them away into the neighbor's yard and they also do the same, poor bears! Never hurts to take infection control precautions. Mom says water is one of the biggest causes of contamination in her work that is why they rinse all the equipment in purified water, so a clean sink is good for you or Polly. when you take a bath, you want clean! Good old soap and water, can't beat it for clean! Love and winghugs, Moggie

No! Falco is having the worst of it, though, because she's the closest to the dining room where all the boxes are. She yells at them a lot. The rest of us just get upset going through the space with mom. Hope you are having a spectacular day. Hugs, Peppino

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.
