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!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
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!
Remember that I love you!

  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!
Remember that I love you my friend!

  Hi Giz,
oh, how sweet of your mom to post our picture. We sure had fun at the races didn't we. We always enjoyed our time together. I might find someone to love here on earth one day but I am not looking for it.

Love always, your SweetPea ♥

  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.
I will see you tonight for another story!

  Hello Gizmo~
The pizza was delish! I had 2 pieces and so did Mandy. Mom let Merlin have a bit of the sausage that was on it. He loved it and came looking for more!
We didn't get a whole lot done today at all. Mom is feeling better but still tired. She is going to get a few notes done for me, feed Mandy and Merlin and then we will have our story and hit the hay!! I'm looking forward to seein you there!
Remember that I love you so much!

I am still in love with you and miss you so much...I am a terrible girlfriend...I should be over here visiting you much more often. Even though I am not here that doesn't mean that I don't think of you every day...cause I do...

That was so special that you came over to visit with me the other day. We all had a good but quiet Easter...

I love you with all of my heart...your SweetPea ♥

Mom is trying to catch up with things around here! She hasn't even remembered to plug her phone in so she had to turn it off and plug it in!!! If dad calls and gets her voicemail, he will call Ian to see what is up! She will probably have half a dozen texts from her sister when she turns it back on! Her sister is very fond of texting and they are really long ones too!hehehehe
I will see you for another story book tonight!

  Hello Gizmo~
That blank screen thing just happened again. Everything looks normal now. I can still leave notes so I'm not going to complain. I don't understand how anything on a web page works except for ads, so it might just be a part of a program they are working on.
Everyone is still worried about BC shutting down but they have some really big name ads so I think they are making plenty of money from it and won't do anything right now.
I will see you tonight for another story.

  Hello Gizmo~
Mom is thinking she might eat some cereal before she goes to bed. She doesn't usually like eating before bed but she found out the hard way that you need to eat before you take nyquil or you might get an upset tummy! I'm good with it since there are 2 huge boxes of Cheerios out there and I wouldn't mind having a few before I hit the night cage!!
It's about time for our book so come on over! I can't wait to see you!!

Mom is not typing very fast as it is and with having to go back and forth to get to a page, well it's not helping at all! I should not complain because I can still get the notes done!
Mom has to take Jennifer to work soon and then pick Ian up at 2. Then she'll be able to sleep for a while. She has tomorrow night off! YAY! She hates working on Friday nights. That is the night we watch a movie and have snacks. We all enjoy it so much that she hates to miss that! We can do it on other nights but Friday night is the best! Next week there is no reason for her to change her schedule so she'll have her usual days off. Funny how you get use to having certain days off and it just feels strange when you don't have them off!
I will see you tonight for another story!!

  Hello Gizmo~~
Mom has a cough now! She hates it!hahahahaha It won't be long until she is back to her old self and not feeling like she wants to put her head down all the time! She did part of the prepping for Sunday last night and will finish it tonight. That way she doesn't have to sit in the office for long periods of time! It's much better when she is in the store and moving around. She had lots of clearance last night in Domestics. Lots of towels! There are some very pretty black, white and bright pink striped towels but mom is pretty sure dad wouldn't go for that! They are velour and mom likes the cotton terry ones better anyway. There were quite a few of the coral colored ones left but mom knew that they would not sell well. They have a bright green towel that is called Parrot! It makes mom smile when she sees that! I, of course, have a Hello Kitty pink towel! I only use it when I go visit my vet!hehehehehe
I will see you for our story tonight!

Mom is having a hard time remembering what day it is! I don't know if it's her cold, her messed up schedule or if she is just getting oldtimes! I think it might be a bit of each!hahahaha
We talked to dad last night and he is doing well. He was watching a movie on Netflix before he went to sleep! He is in Wisconsin and had to deliver this morning. Don't know where he will be off to next! I know he has another doctor's appointment on the 27th so he won't be gone too long this time!

Mom and I read a very cool story on MSN this morning about a high school boy from NYC who was accepted by all 8 Ivy league colleges!! Isn't that cool? He must be a very smart guy. Now he has to pick one! I think that would be the hardest part! I bet his family is so very proud of him. He had to have worked very hard!! I wonder if anyone has done that before??

  Hello Gizmo~~
Happy Easter to all my Rainbow Bridge friends!!!
Dad is doing fine. He stopped and got the prescription filled and bought more food. He likes to make his own food instead of eating out all the time. He tries to watch salt and fats and that is easier to do if he makes his own food. His whole family died from heart problems so dad has always been very careful and has been getting checked for many years now. His older brother died when he was 53 from a heart attack. Dad is doing all he can and they have so many new meds now that help with the cholesterol!
I will see you tonight for another great story!

  Hello Gizmo~
Mom didn't boil any eggs this year. We always color eggs so I hope she does a few tomorrow. She eats them but no one else likes them. Coloring eggs was mom's favorite part of Easter so I think she should just do a few! They had the cage free eggs on sale so she bought 2 dozen at one store and an 18 pack at another! She only buys cage free even though they are more expensive. She told Ian that supporting the cage free industry might push the others to treat the chickens better. They really should be able to run around if they want to run around!!

Dad waited until the last minute to leave this morning! He is so funny! He asked mom is she minded getting up early to take him but since mom is going back to work tonight she would have been up early anyway.
She has to go to the library and the market and then she'll be getting ready for bed. She cleaned the carpet this morning and cleaned up the kitchen too! It turned out that the daycare is close starting today so at least Jennifer can stay home and get better! Mom is going to pick up some more soup for her since it makes her feel better! She really can't taste anything so nothing sounds appetizing to her! Glad that doesn't happen to me!hehehehehe
See you tonight for another story!!
