Thanks to Aunt Jane, Uncle Bill, and Chyna for my memorial stone.
July 1, 2013 I found my lovely boy dead in his cage when I got up this morning. I don't know why. I will miss him every day of my life.

Gizmo was my dream come true! I was looking for an older gray, due to my age. I spoke to a rescue group in August, and within 2 weeks they called and told me about him. When he was turned in I went to visit him, and it was love at first sight. He sat calmly on my arm while the interview was conducted and the paperwork filled out. Since this rescue is over an hour away, the head of it told me I could take him immediately, as long as we finished his quarantine at home. I got my dream that day, and he's just perfect!

  Hello Gizmo~
Mom brought home a rug cleaner today. She has been saving up for one and was planning on buying it on Senior Discount day next week but it went clearance last night so she got it even cheaper! The clearance is an extra 50% off this week and mom had some gift cards she won at work so a 120$ cleaner only cost her 23.34! She is very happy to have one because of all the messes Mandy and Merlin make. I am not so happy because even though it's still in the box, it looks like an evil vacuum to me! It is a Hoover Quick and Light and will be perfect for us since she only plans on doing small areas at a time. I will of course be in another room when it gets done! Good thing since it looks just like the evil vacuum!!!!!
I will see you for our story tonight!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Gizmo~
Well, it's after 1 now and the Blue Angels did not fly by! Bummer!!! I think they are staying up at Boeing Field instead of at JBLM. They have a secure hanger up at Boeing Field. That is where they keep Air Force One when the president comes to town. Mom got to see President Clinton's Air Force One when he was in town once. It must be so cool to have your own airplane to go wherever you need to go!

  Hello Gizmo~
Pretty quiet day around here. Sunday's usually are. Saturday nights are always very busy for mom so she is kind of tired when she gets home. We just do laundry and maybe a little cooking and that's about it. I don't mind at all since whoever is home is usually out here with me! It's just Jennifer and mom today since Ian is at work. Ian has been working a lot because they are short handed at the store. He said they are going to be hiring a few more people since the holidays will be starting soon. He certainly doesn't mind working. He seems to be very happy there.
I will see you tonight for our story.
Remember that I love you my friend!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
I am so happy that you all were there to hear Maddie read! She doesn't now any words really but she made lots of noises. She seemed to like the book. I had 2 copies of Llama Llama Red Pajama so she took one home with her!
She has a list of stuff as birthday present suggestions but I think I'm going to get her something Hello Kitty. Can you believe she doesn't own any Hello Kitty things? I am going to remedy that!!hahahaha
I will see you tonight!

  Hello Gizmo~
Today was baby day around here! After Maddie and her mom Terra left, mom, Ian and Jennifer went over to visit Ian's best friend Ryan, his wife Tara and their baby Riley Ann. Riley Ann is 9 months old and very cute! She is making all sorts of noises now and seem to love to share with everyone.
They are moving to Dallas on Sunday so this was a goodbye for now visit. They all loved seeing each other but it's going to be sad to have them living so far away. Ian says it give them a reason to go visit Dallas!!

  Hello Gizmo~
I am having a lovely day so far. It's still cloudy but no rain this morning.
I did have to sit in my night cage for an extra hour this morning since mom had to take dad back to his truck. I suppose it was okay since it was nice just to have him around for an extra day!!
I will see you for our story tonight!!

  Hello Gizmo~
It was a strange day around here since mom was sleeping in the morning and dad was home. It was nice, just strange. Mom hates having split days off but there is not helping it this week. The last 2 weeks there have been small ads fro Friday and Saturday and even though mom had them all ready they did not get done. They do not have a back up at mom's store. The back up is suppose to do the work on the days when the regular price changers are off. Mom's back up went to the floral department years ago and they never hired anyone else. mom keeps hoping they will but since it's been years I don't think it's going to happen!!
Almost time for our story!! I will see you there!

  Hello Gizmo~
It's funny how now that it's back into the 60's around here it feels cold! Everyone is running around in hoodies today! I guess it could be because of the rain too! Hoodies are a necessary fashion accessory up here because you usually need something to cover your head! No one uses and umbrella!!hahahahahahaha Goofy humans!!
It's still nice to have the rain back just because it will help with all the fires out East!
See you for another great story tonight!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
Mom just got back from dropping Jennifer off, went to the library and to the market! Now she has to take Ian to work and dad to his truck. Then she can finally get some sleep!!
She put Turbo on for me to watch while she was gone and it's a really funny movie! It's about a snail that likes to race! He is really fast!
She got us some good books so I can't wait to start reading!!!
I'll see you tonight!

  Hello Gizmo~
Sailor Moon was okay. I guess this was the first show since she just found Sailor Mercury in it. There is Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Venus. They are superheros I think. At least in the first one they were fighting a bad guy. I guess the other girls show up in the next few episodes. Jennifer likes to find old shows and watch them from the beginning! That is why we sat though weeks of Top Chef.hehehehehe She also reads books in chronological order! I suppose that is a good thing since you don't want to ruin the story by knowing what is going to happen!!
Speaking of stories, I will see you tonight for another one!

I am slamming my measuring cups at the moment which is okay with mom since I have been screaming since she got back!
It was very exciting for her to get to see the Superbowl ring! It must be an awesome feeling to have something so unique and rare! Something you earned too!!

  Hello Gizmo~
Pretty nice day so far. Mom had to go to the market early today since dad is off getting a ct scan at the moment. it is a follow up and was scheduled 2 weekes ago but he want's back in time. It's probably just a waste of time but I suppose it's better to be sure that everything is okay.
Mom is going to use the evil vacuum in the bedroom since all of us are out here in the living room. I'm glad because I really do hate that thing.
I will see you for another story tonight!!

  Hello Gizmo~
I am watching a show called How to Train Your Dragon. It's very good and very funny! I didn't know there were so many types of dragons. Do you suppose they are ancestor of birds?? I think they must be!
Lots of cleaning up to do around here. It happens every time dad comes home. He is a bit messy.
They are going to power wash the front of the building tomorrow. They did the car port today but didn't finish the front of the building. I think by tomorrow evening it should all be done at my building. It sure is a lot of work for those 2 guys!!
It's about time for our story so I'll see you in a few minutes!

I'm glad dad took a nap this morning since it gave us a chance to watch Rio 2!
Dad is now back to watching West Wing. It's really not such a bad show but if they really run the government that way it all seems a bit shady! It would be nice if everyone said what they mean.
I will see you tonight for another fabulous story!!

We are on our 10th day of temps over 80! People are actually complaining! We have one more day and then we'll be back into the 70's. That should make everyone happy! It's so funny!! We usually only have one week of hot weather so I guess 11 days is just too much! Mom's store sold out of all the fans and the AC but got 2 new pallets last night. They will probably all sell today. The eastern part of the state is always very hot this time of year but not us here on the west coast!

Mom was on the phone for a long time with here sister this morning. Mom doesn't have to talk much when her sister
in on the phone.hahahahaha Her sister is enjoying her retirement and went down to Seaside Oregon with a friend and mom got to hear all about it.

I have gotten very brave...not sure why now since I haven't been doing it for very long. Dad wonders why it has taken me so many years to finally get so adventurous...I have fun bugging mom...I love to try and get her bad foot...hehe, I know I shouldn't but it is fun. I love it when she is putting dishes in the dishwasher and I can sneak underneath and go for her toes...hehe

  Hi ya Gizmo~
I am so sorry I didn't get over here yesterday either! I know that you are okay with it but I hate having mom have to do so many things and that my social life suffers!
Not much to report anyway.
Mom was on the phone with her Aunt for a long time today. Her Uncle's birthday was yesterday. He is 85. They took a bus trip with their church to Portland Oregon. They went to see the Grotto and the Rose Garden. They had lunch in a mall down there and then got lost trying to get back to the bus! They made it back and had a wonderful time!

  Hi ya Gizmo~~
It has been a nice day so far. It's gotten warmer but mom has the window open and the fan on so I'm comfortable. We have a breeze so that is helping too. When it get a little darker, near 10pm, mom will open the balcony door. She doesn't do it this time of the day since there is so much traffic out there and it's just too noisy!!
It's our weekend but I don't know what is going to happen. Mom just wants to get some sleep and then tomorrow she'll tackle the market!
I will see you tonight for another great story!

  Hello Gizmo~
It's still nice here and it's not suppose to be as hot today. It didn't feel bad yesterday at all. Mom leaves the window open when she goes to work and Ian shuts it before he goes to bed. I only have a sheet over my night cage now so I have been staying cool.
Ian bought Jennifer pizza for her birthday yesterday and they saved some of the crust for me! It was wonderful! I had it instead of toast this morning! Kind of makes it feel like a special day! Hey! Everyday is special!
I'll be seeing you for a story tonight!
