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~
The gardeners are here! It's really windy and really wet and they are out there! They are trying to blow up all the leaves! They are wet and icky and I don't think all that blowing is going to do them much good!
They are putting Christmas flags up out front! They have snowmen on them! They've never done that before. I've had fun watching the guy trying to get the new flag up in the wind and rain!hahahahaha It's going to be nice to have them for the Christmas season!
See you tonight for our story!
Remember that I love you so very much!

Mom is only doing a few notes since she needs to get some sleep!
There were a whole bunch of people outside the store at 7am and they were not there for food! Tomorrow should be interesting!
See you later for our story!

  Hello Gizmo~
There was a video on Facebook this morning that said it was the worlds meanest yellow nape amazon. The bird was a double yellow and it was the camera that was upsetting him! He was doing monster bird at it just like I do with the vacuum! Mom really hopes the bird gets another home because this lady does not know enough to have an amazon! Heck! She doesn't even know what kind of bird she has!!!!!
I will see you tonight for another story!

  Hello Gizmo~
I am snacking on a Chessmen cookie! Mom loves those and bought a little bag last week. I get a piece of one every once in a while when mom decides to have one!
Mom has been looking at cookie recipes. She thinks she will make some to take to work during the season. It's gets a bit tense there at times with so much work and everyone getting tired. A few cookies or some candy for everyone in the lunch room to cheer everyone up for a while at least.
Mom is still waiting for Jennifer to call. It's pretty late for her since most of the parents are there by 5pm. Traffic has been bad all day and perhaps some of them stopped at the store before coming to pick up their children.
I will see you tonight for our story!!

  Hello Gizmo~
Oh yeah! Mom is working from Wednesday night until next Thursday. Another 8 day stretch! Bummer. The lady she works with wants next Monday off so she is going to be working next Friday so mom will have next Thursday and Friday night off. It's just the way things are when you work retail!
We have tonight and tomorrow night so we are just going to enjoy it!
I am so sorry we did not get our story time last night. I am looking forward to tonight so that we can all be together again!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Gizmo~
I am going to supervise the pantry cleaning! I like to see what is in there and perhaps get mom to give me a snack while she is doing it! She still has not decided what to cook!
We read online this morning that Maine, Mass. and Rhode Island actually have a law against stores opening on Thanksgiving day! Who knew they had laws against that???? Mom knows that even with all the petitions people will still show up to shop so the stores will still open!
I will see you for our storytime!!

  Hello Gizmo~
Mom and the kids are going to finally go out and buy some food for Thanksgiving! I do have corn bread but some other stuff might be nice too!hehehehehe
Jennifer wants to go by Joanne's Fabric and get some yarn. She is going to knit her father a scarf and one for her step-father too. She has made a few pairs of the tatting earrings for her sister and her mom. She is going to make all the gifts this year! Very cool!

  Hello Gizmo~
I have been watching Catching Fire with mom. It's the 2nd book of the Hunger Games. I am going to have to wait a while to see the 3rd movie. Bummer! There is lots of action and you know I love action movies!
Ian has to go in for an hour tomorrow morning to set up some display for a new game. Mom is going to go over to the market while he is there. Jennifer probably doesn't have to work tomorrow because some of the kids got the flu are staying home. Mom can get some rest tomorrow and tell me all about the movie!
We are still having story time so I will see you then!
Remember that I love you my friend!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
Mom and I have been watching a show on National Parks and it's been very interesting. The parks are beautiful.
There was a story about Theodore Roosevelt going to Yellowstone when he was in his early 20's because the thought all the buffalo would be gone and he wanted to shoot one! Whats up with that??? This guy became president??? I just don't understand why people want to go out and shoot things! At least early on there were many people like John Muir who realized they needed conservation or it would all be ruined!
I will see you for another story tonight!

  Hello Gizmo~
Dad seems to get to go to lots of interesting places but he doesn't always take advantage of it. He is limited in where he can drive the truck so he doesn't get to see all the sight in a town! He seems to know where every great pizza place is across the country!Hahahahahahaha Dad loves pizza!
I think he is off to Arkansas when he is done with his break. After that I do not know. Mom thinks it would be fun to do it for a while but not all the time.

  Hello Gizmo~
Mom talked to dad a while ago and he is in North Carolina! She had no idea he had gotten that far. The last time she talked to him he said he was going to Kansas City. Guess things changed! He has to take a 34 hour break now so he is at a truck stop there. He said he had gone to South Carolina and dropped something off and brought back a trailer full of pallets to North Carolina! At least it's nice there! He said it was near 70 where he was. He doesn't have WIFI at the truck stop so I imagine he will be moving to another one as soon as he can! He does have some books on his tablet so he can read those!

  Hello Gizmo~
Merlin finally came out yesterday and got his treats. He sometimes comes out when it's apple time but sometimes he just plops on the bed and doesn't really care. He's the only one besides me that has food all the time so he doesn't panic about it!
I decided to take a shower so it's a good thing the house is nice and warm. Mom always worries about me and she has Ian check the thermometer in the bedroom before he goes to sleep. Mom has the thermostat in the bedroom set so that it stays near 70 for me! It took a few tries since it doesn't have the temps listed on it. The one in the living room does. That is why she bought a digital thermometer for the bedroom. I wonder why they didn't put the temp kind in the bedroom?
I will see you tonight for another fabulous story!

I'm watching Mandy munch down on a cookie! Since I just got some apple, Mandy gets a cookie. Merlin did not show up for his treat but he will later!
Ian and Jennifer are both off today so mom can go to bed and not have to get up to pick anyone up! That will be nice! It's not really all that bad and someday we will have another car and they can take turns driving each other to work! It's taking a long time for mom to save up for the down payment but she knows she will get there!
I will see you for our story tonight!! Can't wait!!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
Pretty boring around here right now. Everyone else is at work. Mom has to attempt to get Mandy out again. It went fine this morning so we are hoping it's all good this afternoon.
I had some leftover corn bread this morning! It was yummy and I hope mom makes more soon. She is going to make some cranberry orange bread sometime this week! That stuff is good too! I really do like all kinds of bread!
See you tonight for another story!

Mom talked to dad this morning and he is finally leaving Texas! He's been driving all over there for the last 4 days! He had been up, down and all around! He is on his way to New Mexico now. He is lucky to be somewhere warm! He really doesn't like cold so this time of the year is hard on him. He packed a whole bunch of warm clothes to take with him this time just in case. I think he will be heading east after this!
I will see you tonight for another great story!

I keep getting that URL page and then I have to log out and log back on. It doesn't happen every time at least. I don't really understand what it means! I suppose on a site this big there must be regular work that must be done!
