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~
We know that dad made it to Phoenix okay. Mom looked at the bank account!hehehehe He bought some groceries so he must be tired of eating out. That happens since he eats out a lot. I can see how it would get old after a while. If he doesn't call later mom will just see where he is buying stuff and then she'll know where he is!
I will see you tonight for another story!
Remember that I love you my friend!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
Dad made it out of California and is on his way to Phoenix. He sure has been lucky that last few weeks to stay in warmer places. I guess they are using the trucks that are already in the south and east to do the loads out there. It's safer than running them across the country when there is still so much snow and ice out there!
Only 20 days until Spring! I think every bird is really looking forward to it this year!
See you tonight for another storytime!

  Hello Gizmo~
Dad was still in California last night. He called around 10pm but mom had left the phone on the nightstand in the bedroom and didn't hear it. She called him back about an hour later and woke him up. They had given him a load but had to give it to someone else because one of dad's tires was flat. It took 2 hours to change it so they didn't have a load for him yet, so he went to bed!
At least he is still in a warmish place!
I will see you tonight for our story!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hi Gizmo~~
Mom called dad back yesterday afternoon but he didn't answer the phone. He ended up calling back about 9:30pm when mom was in line at Jack in the Box. Ian got off at 9:30 lat night and wanted to something to eat before mom left for work.
Dad had been driving at night so he was sleeping when mom called back. He was in Oregon on his way to California. He drove all night last night too so he would be in Fresno in the morning. Don't know where he is going next but he'll call eventually.
I will see you tonight for another storybook!!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
Dad called a while ago but mom was on the phone so she has to call him back. He called while mom was driving home yesterday so he talked to Ian. He was in Longview WA which is down near Portland when he called. Don't know where he is right now. Guess we will find out when we call him.
I'm looking forward to seeing you for our story tonight!

  Hello Gizmo~
Mom is thinking it's time to take Mandy back to the vet. She hopes there is something they can do help her but she kind of knows there isn't anything.
In the morning when mom comes home, Mandy is waiting by the door. She gets all wiggly and rubs up against mom and wants to be cuddled. When mom sees her like that it's hard to think that she is almost ready to leave us. Mom will do what is best for Mandy but it isn't going to be easy for her.
I will see you for another book tonight!!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
I guess the problem with the ports out here has been resolved. It took nearly 8 months for them to come to an agreement. I have no idea what they were disagreeing about but they said they signed a tentative agreement yesterday. That's good! Finally we will not have to worry about getting bananas!!!!

  Hello Gizmo~
There weren't any fleas in the bath water so mom thinks they are all gone now. Ian hasn't had any new bites either. The Frontline said it is waterproof after it dried and it was 5 days since mom put it on her. Mostly the bath is for the underside of her and to let her soak in the warm water for a while. She seems to be more active once the bath is done. She is still not crazy about the bath but I think she knows mom is just trying to keep her comfortable.
We are washing her blankets right now. Yesterday was a good day since we didn't have to wash any of them. That was a good thing!

  Hello Gizmo~
Mandy had a bath today and she seems to be moving around much better right now. The baths always help her but is sure is hard on mom's back!hehehehehehe Mandy does not go willingly so mom has to pick her up and put her in the tub! She was chewing at her thigh and chewed off some hair. Mom can't see anything there and there is no infection. There were no fleas in the water either so I guess that Fronline stuff worked. Mom is going to have to keep an eye on her so that she doesn't chew off any more fur! Mom made sure to rinse her very well just in case there was soap residue.

  Hello Gizmo~
I hope you are having a great day!
They are having a dispute here at the west coast ports. They have been trying to hash it out for months but they don't seem to be getting anywhere! The guys who work there are slowing down their work on purpose so it means that a lot of stuff is being late for delivery to stores up here. Mom alwasy gets a banana when she gets to work at night but when she got there the other night there were not bananas!!! Mom really hopes they get this whole thing settled very soon! She loves her bananas!
Have a great night!

  Hello Gizmo~
Dad decided to cook some bacon this morning! He likes it very well cooked so it got a bit smoky in here! I had to be moved to the bedroom before it was time. It wasn't so bad since mom put some music on for me and kept me company! Mom hates the smell of bacon!!
I will see you tonight for another story!

  Hello Gizmo~
No really messy this morning so that is good! Merlin finally went into the bedroom to take a nap! I think it was because I decided to take a shower this morning and I kind of splashed water all over him! It was an accident!!! Really!!hehehehehe
Because it's been so clear, it has been near freezing in the mornings so mom put the fireplace on for a while! It got nice and warm in here so I just decided it was time for a shower! I usually only take them in the afternoon so I surprised everyone! I do look very fluffy even if it is a bit wet around here. We have the carpet cleaner now and I know it sucks up all the water so I don't need to worry about getting the carpet wet! There is a good use for that evil machine!!!
I will see you for our story tonight!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
Dad called a while ago and he might be stopping by today. He is in Oregon and suppose to get a trailer but the trailer is not ready so he will come by for the night. It will be nice to see him. Just hope he doesn't want to do a whole bunch of laundry cause it's being used at the moment!hehehehehe

  Hi ya Gizmo~
I sure am having a fun day! I bet I'm going to take a really good nap this afternoon because I've been going full speed ahead all morning!
Dad is going to put in for time off in about a week so she should be back about a week after that. He really hated being stuck in that motel. Don't think he got paid either but mom has been saving lots so it won't matter if he didn't. He will be upset but mom just tells him to let it go! If you can not fix something then being all stressed out about it is only going to do harm to you!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
Mom can tell by the bank account that dad did not pay for another night at the motel so he must have finally left Phoenix! I know he is very happy. She will try to call him tomorrow to see where he is going. He was going to request time off but that takes a week to process so we don't know when he'll be coming home. I know he is just glad to be back in his truck!

  Hello Gizmo~
I like the idea of making up our own story! I need to come up with an idea and write it down. We could do adventure stories! I think it would be lots of fun.
Dad sounded pretty down on the phone today. Mom told him he should just enjoy the quiet time. I think if he had a way to actually go somewhere it would be different. He says there is a limited amount of places to walk to from the motel. At least it's nice weather over there!!

  Hi ya Gizmo~~
I guess Mandy can smell her meat cooking because she keeps wandering between the kitchen and the living room! Nothing wrong with her nose! She actually has been doing a lot of walking around this evening so that's a good thing. Merlin has been nagging for the last hour and it's not even his dinnertime yet! Ian said he was being very clingy but mom said it's all about the food!!!
See you soon for another story!
