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~
It is a nice cool day here and we are enjoying it. We are suppose to have a few more warm days next week but it autumn is on it's way! I really love autumn but it's got more to do with squash being readily available! I always think with my stomach!!
I will see you for our 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!

I have had a lovely day with cool weather and pizza! I don't know what we have planned for the rest of mom's time out but I'm pretty sure there will be some cleaning being done. Cooking too~ It will be nice no matter what we do since we will be together!
I will see you very soon for our story!

  Hello Gizmo~
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!

Oh dad doesn't have to pay for the truck. He is just driving for this company. He doesn't even have to load anything. The trailers are all loaded and ready to go when he picks them up. He did own a truck years ago but that didn't work out very well. Too expensive to maintain and he was having to drive all the time!
Yep, there is a lot of food in the house! We have lots of cooking to get done. Jennifer is cooking this weekend so mom and I will make some things during the week!
See you for our story tonight!

  Hello Gizmo~
Mom and the kids were gone nearly 2 hours to the market. Mom had to stop and get a new sticker for the car. It cost her $77.75! That's a lot for a little sticker that says 2015 on it! Mom says it's not optional!hehehehe
There is way too much food in the house right now! Ian did shopping and Jennifer did shopping. Mom kept telling them to check with each other as to who was buying what, but they didn't. Jennifer is going to make and Asian dish and some turkey chili so there are tons of veggies in there. I won't mind helping them eat them!!!! I guess mom will be cooking a few things during the week since Jennifer is going to cook tomorrow. I will be checking out what there is and see if there is anything I want. I do know there is more Quinoa so I'm guessing I'll be getting more mash! At least mom shouldn't have to go back to the market for a few weeks!!!!
I will see you tonight for our story!

Dad called from Nebraska today. He is on his way to Indiana somewhere! I don't remember the name of the town he is going to! He said it was very pretty there and he was having a nice trip so far. He is talking about getting a microwave for the truck. He had one in the last truck and liked having it. He can heat water up for oatmeal and coffee so it would come in handy!!
I think it's a good idea!!
See you tonight for our book!

Someone in the neighborhood got a rooster! Mom is saying it's an urban rooster since it doesn't start crowing until 10am! A rooster who sleeps in!hahahahaha
I got to hear my budgie cousins on the phone the other night. They were sundowning! They are not very loud at all! I think I need to go over and visit them and show them how it's really done! I wonder if I could teach them how to yell help? I'm sure mom's sister would appreciate that!hehehehehe

I am having a nice day so far. I've been watching the puffy clouds float by the window. It was nice to wake up to cooler temps! The apartment holds heat well which is great in the winter but not so great in the summer. We are on the 2nd floor so we get the extra heat from downstairs. My room always stays cooler because of all the trees outside my window! I have my fan too so I'm all set!

Mom came home early this morning. She wasn't feeling too well and since she was done with her stuff, she decided to take 4 hours of vacation time and come home and get some sleep. She is eating light today because her tummy was upset. We have lots of fruits and she made some jello too. I don't eat that but the fruit was sure good. Mom says she will get another watermelon for us this week. Pretty soon they will be too expensive to buy so we might as well get some now. I am looking forward to all that squash that will be showing up in the market soon!
I will see you tonight for our story!

Yes, Noah was pretty dumb! They had fallen angel rock monsters! Where do you suppose they come up with something so ridiculous??
Mom use to watch Mystery Science Theater too. She doesn't really enjoy the silly B movies but Jennifer loves them so we see quite a few! At least Mystery Science Theater was suppose to be funny! Some of these made for SCIFI movies that Jennifer watches try to be serious but they are all too lame to be taken seriously!!

I got to see some of the birds that are down in Portland this weekend for the Avian conference down there and there was a Derbyan Parakeet! You don't see those everyday. It looks quiet similar to Willie. Some of them can talk and I know they are very expensive. They sure are beautiful birds.

Dad is still here. He got to stay overnight and now he has a load going to British Columbia. I don't know if he is going to leave tonight or tomorrow. It's not very far away but it can take you some serious time to get over the boarder! Did you know that when they give traffic reports here they tell you how long it is taking to cross the boarder? Silly huh? I guess it's information people can use but actually if you are going over the boarder there isn't anything you can do about the wait! You just have to wait! It's probably less time at night though!!
Story time will be a bit early tonight! I will see you there!
