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~
Goodness I am so late!! We took a nap this afternoon and then we spent the rest of the evening cooking and cleaning up. Dinner was yummy but mom had no idea how much ham she bought! We could have fed 20 people with it!! Guess what everyone is going to be eating the rest of the week!hehehehehe Dad is going to take some with him when he leaves tomorrow!
Mandy really loved it which mad mom happy! Even Merlin gobbled down some ham! Who knew that cats like ham?
It's about time for our story so come on over!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Gizmo~
I went around and checked out the other channels and they are all still up with blogs and animals of the day! The only exception is the reptile channel. They took that blog away first and I don't think it worked out well for them. I think that is why the won't touch the other channels!
The small animal channel is cute! They have all sorts of rats, hamsters, ferrets and even a chinchilla! I think Ian would like that one since he wants a ferret!
I will see you for our story tonight!

  Hello Gizmo~
I guess there is going to be yet another new birdie website. I heard about it last month on Facebook but I kind of thought is was just information about food and health issues.
I don't think the BC is going anywhere. There are always tons of ads on this site and that makes money for the people running the site. Once it's up and running there really isn't a great amount of overhead. All you need is someone to keep it updated and fix any problems that pop up. I'll have to go check out the other sites and see how many ads they have. As long as they are making money, I don't think they will shut it down.
I will see you for our story tonight!
Remember that I love you my friend!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
Oh yes! Merlin will always love dad the best but that is fine with mom. She is the one who feeds him and cleans up after him so he loves her too! Sometime too much since he always wants her to pet him when she is trying to sleep! He gets up on her pillow and tries to chew her hair too! Mom hates that!hehehe
I will see you tonight for another great book!

  Hello Gizmo~
The gardeners are here today but they don't seem to be mowing any of the lawns. They have been working with the bushes so that gives me something to watch. I guess the lawns just are not growing fast yet so they don't need to be cut as often. It sure makes for a quieter morning!
Dad should be here on Sunday since he has a doctor's appointment on Monday. They actually called mom who had to give them Dad's phone number. Must be a new person in the office since dad has been going to the same doctor for a really long time and this is the first time they have called mom! It will be nice to see him!
I will see you tonight for another story!

looks up to the sky and listens as Divo,Gabbie,Gizmo tell him that they are there at the Bridge to welcome Mario and to tell him that he's no longer in any more pain and is gout free,Peepers is so relieved to know that Mario will be in good wings being cared for by Gizmo,Gabbie and Divo!He will be truly loved by him also as Dixie always talked about Gizmo and Gabbie loves him just as much and Divo was so special as he welcomed Gabbie when she first flew to the Bridge!
Peepers stands quietly feeling the warmth of the Angel kisses and the calming angel hugs they send him!

  Hello Gizmo~
I knew that Mario would be okay since there are so many of you up there to take care of him! I bet Gabbie is so happy to have him with her!
Having a snack while mom tries to get some notes out for me! Mandy had a cookie and is sleeping in front of my night cage. She was up for breakfast on time this morning. I think she knew that mom was off yesterday so she figured they should all sleep in.
We stayed up pretty late last night so that mom could finish up a few things. Mandy still follows mom all over so mom finally had to tuck us all in just so that Mandy would go to sleep! It's a good thing that she is still alert and wanting to hang out with us!
I will see you for another story tonight!!!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
It as an okay day. I spent most of it playing with a toy while mom did the cleaning stuff. Mom got some of the things done that she wanted to but there is still lots to do. Spring cleaning is not really lots of fun but mom says we gotta get it done since we live with a very messy family!hehehehehe

  Hi ya Gizmo~
It keeps getting very dark here. It rained pretty hard about an hour ago and the wind is really blowing. No thunder or lightening yet so maybe they were wrong about that. I'm sure Jennifer is not having a fun day since she still has a cold and all the kids will be inside all day! She took some card games for the older ones to play when they get home from school. There is a good selection of DVD's at the daycare too so maybe they can find something everyone wants to watch!!
I will see you tonight for our story!

  Hello Gizmo~
It's raining here again and it got cooler! It's the normal weather for this time of the year so I can't complain!
Mom said the grocery store was very crowded and when she dropped Ian off at Toys R Us it was very busy too! I guess with all the rain everyone if going shopping.
Mom dropped the trash off on the way over to the market and it's all the way out the driveway leading to the compactor. Someone put a mattress size box in front of the compactor door and instead of moving it out of the way, everyone just dumped their trash in front of it! It's a big mess and mom feels so bad for the guys who have to clean it up! Sometimes people are just too lazy!!
I will see you for our story very soon! I am doing it early today since mom will have to leave early tonight to get Ian and then get dad to his truck and get herself to work!!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Gizmo~
Mom thinks that Rita Mae Brown is the one. Her sister loves to share and often tells mom the ending to a movie or a book. She and mom don't usually like the same movies so that part is okay but mom would rather read a story to the end! You know! Just like us and the story books!
Mandy was having leg tremors this morning. That is from the nervous system going haywire. That means she is in the final stages now. Mom has to help her down the hallway to her blanket but that's okay. She is still eating so that is good too. We will just take it one day at a time!!
I will see you tonight for another great story!

Mom is about ready to leave, but I'll have dad and Mandy for company!
Dad put the headphones on to play his game which mom thinks is a great idea. She is afraid I might start yelling "roger that" since they say it a bunch of times in the game. It's not a bad phrase but like with help and apple, she is afraid I will yell it not just speak it!

  Hello Gizmo~
The flowers around here are just beautiful. There will be a daffodil parade next month and by then the daffodils will be blooming everywhere. The Fuchsia plating event will be the first weekend in April and then there will be Fuchsia baskets everywhere! Mom is not crazy about Fuchsias because they are so messy! Nice to look at but she doesn't want any on the balcony. I just like to see what will be planted next! The primroses just went in so they will be out there for a while. They are yellow, purple and red! Just beautiful!!!

It is nearly Spring! It's so exciting! I already have had the spring-like weather for weeks and I am really enjoying seeing all the plants come to life! We have tons of evergreens here so it's nice when something other than green pops up! I love green but seeing the daffodils blooming down the center of the street really puts a smile on my beak! We have primroses out in front now and they are so bright! Just love them!!

  Hi ya Gizmo~~
I'm here!
We never did find out what happened with the internet, but it must have been big for it to be down all day. The cable was down too from what the recording at Comcast said. They are so funny because they tell you to check on their website for information! If you don't have internet, how are you going to check???? Ian got to it on his smart phone but it just said the area was down and that they were working on it. There were a lot of unhappy people leaving comments this morning. I hate to tell them, but it wasn't the end of the world and we all made it through! I did miss visiting with every bird though. It figures it was on a Sunday when we have more time for notes!! Oh well!!
I will see you tonight for our story!

There was a dead moth in my water bowl in the play cage this morning! I suspect Merlin put it there but mom says it just flew in by itself! ICK! I had mom sanitize my bowl before I got more water!hehehehehehe
Mom is going to have to clean out George and Gracie when she gets back from dropping everyone off! She got some wet wipes for Mandy so she doesn't have to give her a bath everyday. They have conditioners in them too so it will help her skin from drying out. Mom has been worried that so many baths will dry her skin out but so far she is okay!!
I will see you tonight for another story!!!

We have always made corn beef and cabbage on St. Patrick's day. The soda bread it welcome anytime of the year!hehehehehe
Mom's grandparents and dad's father were all from Ireland so some of the recipes are passed down from the family. Mom's mother use to make an awesome pea and potato soup but only mom likes that! Dad was stationed in England while he was in the Air Force and the British serve peas with everything. He only likes split pea soup now!
