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 some new pillows today! Dad had a feather pillow but the thing is leaking!hahahahaha Mom has two covers on it to keep the feathers from getting all over the place. Mom's store had some pillows that were half off today so she grabbed them before she left work this morning. Now she can finally toss that leaking pillow. The new ones are not feather pillows! Dad insisted on having the feather pillow but then he decided he didn't like the thing!
See you soon for our story tonight. It's going to be a funny one!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Gizmo~
I got to talk to dad aging today. When mom's sister couldn't get a hold of her she called dad who called Ian who told mom!Hahahahahaha
Anyway dad called to make sure everything was okay. Mom's sister planted the idea that something was wrong. Dad said that he figured mom had gone to sleep.
He was in Indianapolis when he called. He's heading west and on his way home!
I will see you tonight for another great story!

  Hello Gizmo~
Mom got us a nice stack of books this time. She said it was difficult to find since there were little kids all over yesterday. Usually on Sunday it's pretty quiet there but there were little ones running around and jumping on the big stuffed blocks they have there. The blocks are very cool since they push together to make furniture but it was hard to look at books when she had to watch out for little kids rolling all over the place! She grabbed us a couple weeks worth of books! It is okay with me! I just love reading them! I know you do too!
See you tonight!
Remember that I love you so very much!

LOOK! I made a heart too! That is so cool!
Chyna showed me how! I bet there will be hearts all over the place now!
I'm sitting here watching Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Jennifer owns it and watches it all the time. She still giggles at it but I don't see what is so funny about it! I laugh when it seems appropriate.
Not much else to report from here. Mom will be getting books soon and then she can get some sleep! She will like that!!
I'll see you tonight for another fabulous story!
Remember that I love you!

  Hello Gizmo~
Mom got a nice card and sent if off to Aunt Robin. Mom knows that she has some medical issues she has to deal with all the time and it just breaks our hearts. We don't think she has too much support at home so it's awesome that your mom was able to talk with her for a while. I know it meant the world to Aunt Robin. Your mom is just an excellent human being and mom and I both think she is just awesome!!
I will see you for our story tonight!! I hope it's another funny one!

I did get a scone! It was an orange one and it was yummy. There is still part of it left so I can have more tomorrow.
They enjoyed Panera as usual. Mom has been there 3 times and everytime, dad has called while she is having her salad!
He was in Ohio and on his way to New York. He should be home around the 1st of September since he has a doctor's appointment on the 3rd. He sure has been gone a long time!!
It's storytime so come on over!!

It's been a nice day so far. We got some cleaning done this morning and now mom and Jennifer are getting ready to go get Ian and go to the mall. I think they are going to go to Panera again. Jennifer didn't get to go last time since she had to work so I think that is where they are going. That means I'll be getting a lovely scone! I suppose that is worth being alone for a while!!
I will see you for out story tonight!

  Hello Gizmo~
Mom heard a story on the news on her way home this morning about sun glasses. They are saying that kids as young as 6 months old should wear sun glasses. They think that it will help with cataracts and macular degeneration or maybe prevent people from getting it! Intersting!! They said you should not be cheap about sun glasses and mom had to laugh since she buys hers at the Dollar tree!!

Yep! Dad gets to go to lots of neat places but he sometimes acts like it old hat! He was telling mom all about Dallas the other day because the old Cowboy stadium is gone and they have a new one!
Yesterday he told mom he was going to find a Denny's near the truck stop~they usually are near the truck stops~and get himself a big Sunday breakfast! Dad really loves breakfast but not mom! Last night when mom checked her email, dad had emailed her a picture of his breakfast! Is he a goof or what?hahahahaha

  Hello Gizmo~
Mom talked to dad a bit ago. He has the AC going in the truck since he was in Dallas and it was very hard to hear! Mom kept asking him to speak up!! It drives her nuts to just hear the static from the fan!
He was in Louisiana yesterday going to Oklahoma but he had to take the trailer to the shop in Dallas to get it fixed. It was in bad shape and everyone who had this trailer before didn't bother to report the problems! Half of the tires on the thing were flat!
It's fixed now and he is on his way. I guess the company is going to try to find out why no one mentioned the problems. I think it took them longer to fix because driving it with bad tires took it out of alignment too!!
When he was in Louisiana he saw the apartment he use to live in when he was in the Air Force! Ian said he couldn't believe it was still there! Mom told Ian it wasn't like it was 200 years old!hahahahahaha
I will see you for our story tonight!!

  Hello Gizmo~
I am having an apple and an almond rather late today. I spent a good deal of my time this morning getting neck rubs and scritchies from mom! I am molting and not very happy about it! Lots of little fuzzies are flying all over the place. The big feathers from my tail seem to be done now so it's just the little fuzzies. I think they are the worst! I have been taking lots of showers to help it along! I hope it ends soon!!!

It's still cloudy here but the weather guys say it's going to get sunny later on. At least all the hot hot is gone and I am hoping that was it for the Summer. 70 and 80 is just fine but over that is just too much for this little green zon to handle. I do't like that big AC being out at all. It doesn't really make any noise, it's just not suppose to be there! I really hate it when things are not where they are suppose to be. Guess it's a zon thing!haha
Remember that I love buddy and I look forward to our storytime together!

Mom came home and took a nap this morning. SHe was having a hard time staying awake when she sat down!! I don't think anyone slept well in that heat yesterday!
I had my waffle in my night cage and then played with a toy while mom took a nap.
I think she is going to have Wednesday and Thursday night off this week. There is a big ad for Saturday so someone needs to be there Friday night to do it. It's still 2 days off in a row so I'm fine with it!

  Hi Gizzy, my love,
I did not know that Tooth had cancer. We did not know him very well but he was a very nice fellow. Fly Free Tooth. I know you will help take care of him...

We also lost a human friend today...Robin Williams passed away also. RIP...he was a very funny man...

Another hot day here, 97º but cloudy and it looked like it might rain. Tomorrow the weather people are saying we are supposed to get thunder showers for the next few days.

Dad is still waiting to find out if he gets his licence or not. The lady said if she gets the info by Wednesday then she would send dad a temporary one so he could race this weekend. Keep your toes crossed for him.

Mom has been working on dad's computer for the last few days as it was running really slow. Mom deleted some un-needed stuff and ran a scan which found some malware and got rid of it. Mom then tried to update his computer to Windows 8.1 but couldn't because there were 120 windows files that needed to be updated first. Mom went on line to figure out how to do it the right way and it took a long time to get it done but now dad has Windows 8.1. It seems to be working fine right now as mom is using it to blog tonight...

Harley is doing good on her food now, mom doesn't know if they make any other flavors or not. Harley is not to have anything other than her Science Diet food. The parronts have asked us not to throw out so much stuff...hehe, they have been really diligent about keeping our floors clean so Harley is out of luck there. When the parronts are having lunch and Harley is waiting for her treat, they give her a couple of nuggets of her food and she seems to be okay with it...she gobbles it down like it was a doggie biscuit. Mom hopes that maybe she'll be able to add some veggies to her food.

So far the PT has caused mom quite a bit of pain. She is trying to do the exercises as much as she can but boy do they hurt a lot...

I've been pretty good at leaving mom's foot alone for quite a while...I find exploring fun, mom has some boxes in the kitchen for me to tear apart and find the peanuts she hides in there...hehe

Hugs and Kisses and lots of love for you, your SweetPea ♥

Another friend up on the Bridge. It really does give me comfort to think about all of you together just hanging out!
It was so exciting last month when Tooth's moms got married! I'm so glad he got to be part of that and I'm glad he shared the news with me!
He will always be in my heart, just like you and Divo! I wish you all could have stayed longer, but I do know that I am blessed because I got to meet you!
