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~
Dad never made it to Utah. He has a sensor come on at a truck stop in Idaho and now the truck won't start. The sensor says that the truck is out of coolant but it's not. Dad checked the coolant but there is nothing he can do until they get a repair truck out there which wont't be there until tomorrow! He'll be spending the night in Idaho! He has food at the truck stop and it's not hot so he'll be fine. Lots of gadgets in the trucks these days!!
I will see you tonight for another great story!

  Hello Gizmo~
So Ian, mom and dad are pulling out of the driveway when dad yells that he forgot his cell phone! Mom goes around the corner and back into the complex and dad rushes upstairs to get his phone. He can't find it!!! He looks in his bag and there it is! He packed it and forgot!
See how crazy it is around here when he gets ready to go?? You know that when the family wants to go somewhere they tell dad it's an hour before they have to leave just to get there on time! His whole family was like this!
See you tonight for our story!

  Hello Gizmo~
I had a pretty good day. Mom had some running around to do but she was never gone for too long. She would have rather stayed home and get more stuff done but that didn't happen. Tomorrow dad has to go to Utah, Jennifer is going to her dad's and Ian has to work! Mom is going to be driving a whole bunch tomorrow!
I will see you very soon for our story!

  Hello Gizmo~
Pretty soon I am going to get put back into my night cage! Mom says I am safer there and she doesn't know if dad will be staying up or going to sleep while they are gone to the movies. The plan on stopping at Shari's cafe after the show to have a late dinner and mom asked dad if he wanted to come with them. He told her to give him a call when they get out of the theater. Mom will already have me in there so if he wants to go she won't have to worry about me! We will be having our story a bit late but that's okay!! I'll see you then.

Mom and dad went out for breakfast when mom got home! Dad was hungry and mom didn't eat last night so they went over to Shari's and had breakfast. I didn't notice any pancakes for me though!!! Mom says neither of them had pancakes!!! Why go out to breakfast if you are not going to eat pancakes??? I think there is something wrong with them!!hehehehehe

I just finished chewing up more wood in my play cage. It was all cleaned up when I got out here this morning so I needed to get some decorating done! When will mom every learn that I like it messy in here? I ripped the paper up very well yesterday! Mom said it took some time to get it all swept up! I feel like I did a great job!

  Hello Gizmo~~
Mom got the stuff picked up before dad got home. She has a pile near the window in the living room that is going to Goodwill. We still have lots to do but dad sort of spreads out when he is here so we will have to wait until the end of the week to finish. Dad has to deliver tomorrow so his days off don't start until Wednesday. Mom has her 3 day weekend so she will have to work around him. It will all get done but a lot of our time is spent cleaning up after Mandy. No matter how many mats and wee wee pads mom puts down, Mandy always seems to miss once in a while and we have to clean the carpet. She needs to do it today but she will wait until she can get Mandy into the bedroom. It's less stressful that way and when Mandy gets stressed out these days she starts to shake. Mom had to wrap her up in her blanket after her bath the other day even though it wasn't cold. Mandy just doesn't like getting a bath!
I will see you tonight for our storytime!

  Hello GIzmo~
Yesterday dad said he was not going to be home until Wednesday. Now he called and said he is half way through Oregon and will be here by 5pm! Mom has stuff spread out that she had been working on and now she has to get is all put away before he gets home. He needs the room for all his stuff! Mom really wishes he had called earlier but that would make too much sense!hahahahaha He is such a dad!

  Hello Gizmo~
The pictures in the galleries are vanishing again. I wonder why they do that? When I close out a window and go back they appear again!
One thing I have noticed on BC is that if mom is searching for something online, ads for it pop up here! We have had days of tire ads popping up!! I wonder if there is a way to tell them we already got tires!hehehehehe Those ads are actually a great thing since it makes money for I5! The more money they make the less they are going to bother with our site!!

  Hello Gizmo~
Dad will probably leave on Thursday if he gets here on Sunday. It would be better if he hung around another day since mom, Ian and Jennifer are going to the movies Thursday night and I'll have to hang out in my night cage with just Merlin for company! Mandy will be there but I'm pretty sure she will be sleeping. It would be much more fun if dad was here and I could just hang out in the play cage until the others got home! Maybe if I give him a really pitiful look, he'll stay!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
I think dad is staying for at least 3 days. Mom told him they were going to the movies on Thursday night and asked if he wanted her to get him a ticket but he said no. He rarely goes to the movies. The last one he went to see was one of the Bourne movies. Mom went with him even though she doesn't really care for the story. Dad has read all the books and loves them! Mom thought it was way too loud!
Dad knows that Ian will buy all the movies they go to see so he watches them when Ian buys them! They have that digital download now so mom and Ian give dad the codes and he watches the movie on his laptop while he's out on the road!
See you tonight for another story!

Dad is in California so he should be able to make it home on Sunday. He has another doctors appointment on Monday so he better get up here!
It was a very nice day! The rain is coming back tonight but I got to enjoy sunshine today. We opened the window just a crack because it's not real warm yet. The fresh air smells so good! This time of the year always puts a smile on my beak!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
Mom just got off the phone with dad and he is back in Phoenix. His truck broke so he is switching to another one. He said they have these platforms where you pull the truck up on one side and the other truck on the other side and the platform is level with the inside of the truck. That will make it way easier to get his stuff moved. He has a whole lot of stuff so it's going to take a while and it's near 100 there!! He said he took a shower when he got there which was dumb since he says he is going to need a shower when he is done! He has lots of cold drinks and will take it easy so he doesn't get overheated.
I will see you for our story tonight!!

  Hello Gizmo~
I do not know if Jennifer's dad will try the Angel Food cake or not. He has not deviated from the list the doctor gave him. He eats already prepared food since he won't cook. I would think you would get bored pretty quick with just frozen dinners and soup. I think he is a bit afraid to eat anything different right now. It would probably do him a world of good to go see a nutritionist. It would make him less afraid of food!!

I've had my snack and a scone too!! They have a mini fair at the fairground in Spring time and one of the grandkids of the lady who owns the daycare is working it. Jennifer gave her money and she brought us a big bag of fair scones! Yummy scones with raspberry jam. It was good and Mandy enjoyed it too.
Mom is going to drop Ian off and then get some sleep. We will have our story early today since she has to go to work as soon as she picks him up tonight!! I'll see you then!

  Hi ya Gizmo~~
I think you can put movies on the Nook. If not they probably have a service where you can watch them on it. Mom bought Mockingjay so it's the only one in her video library. The other movies are on a service called Flickster but she down loaded those movies to the Kindle so you don't have to worry about having wifi to watch them. She bought all the DVD's and they had to code inside. Dad took the one for Catching Fire and has it on his laptop and he thinks he can load it on the Kindle for mom. She has been going through all the DVD's to see if there are more. Ian took some of them for his tablet and you can only use the code once. Mom doesn't really watch them on the Kindle much but it's nice to have them if the power goes out or she is stuck somewhere where she would have to wait for a long time! Now she just has to remember to keep it charged!hahahaha That's the hard part!
See you tonight for another story!

  Hello Gizmo~~
Oh you have the picture up!! YAY! I do love it so much.
Mom had to sit in the office last night and prep her stuff for Saturday night. It gets pretty boring so she propped her Kindle on the table and watched Mockingjay while she prepped! She has all 3 Hobbit movies but she had to download them on the Kindle since they were stored on Flickster. When you buy DVD's they usually come with a code to download the movie so mom went through her DVD's looking for the downloads! That way she has stuff on the Kindle to watch when she is not at home!
I will see you tonight for another great story!!!
I love you my friend!!!

Oh I think you should have the derby picture up! It is derby time. I found a nice hat but all my pictures are on the other computer so mom thinks it's time to take some new ones! We shall see if I am in the mood!
I just love derby time and everyone in hats and cool horses. It was a very clever idea and brings such a fun feeling to the BC. It always exciting to see who wins too.
