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~
Dad just called from Best Buy. I guess he got done looking at Costco. He was looking at computers online last night. He says he can buy a new one cheaper than just replacing the insides of this one! Don't know about that but I think he will take a long time looking around before he decides to buy anything. Mom just doesn't see the need for spending a bunch since dad uses his phone most of the time!! Mom just has a phone that is a phone!!
I will see you tonight for another great story!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Gizmo~
I have notice the days getting shorter. Last month is was still light at 9pm and now it's dark. You can notice the difference during the afternoon the most. The sun is in a different place and it looks like autumn! Only a few more days and it will be officially here! I just love autumn!
See you tonight for another wonderful story!
Remember that I love you buddy!

  Hello Gizmo~~
It was a nice day! We did not hear from dad today but he might still be in British Columbia. He doesn't call when he's in Canada because it cost too much. He may call tomorrow. Mom follows where he is by where he buys stuff with the ATM card! It's silly but it works!
It's almost story time so I'll see you very soon!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Gizmo~
It's been a quiet day around here except for me! I am not being quiet! I am yelling help, help, help!! Mom is trying to get me to cut it out but I'm just getting louder!
There were some guys on the roof cleaning out the vents and I did not like the noise at all! I've been yelling ever since!
The whole vent cleaning thing did not work out well for us last time since they actually clogged the thing instead of clearing it out! Mom had the dryer running when they started to we shall see how it goes this year!
I'm sure I'll be nice and quiet when story time comes around! See you then!
Remember that I love you!

  Hello Gizmo~
I'm having a lovely day so far. Mom has done a bit of laundry and now she is going to take Jennifer to work. We'll go to the bedroom when she gets back and I can have a snack and play with the toy that is in my night cage.
Dad is on his way to British Columbia. He'll probably get to come by home again. He wanted to head East because he gets paid more driving out there but the load to British Columbia is all they had so he'll go there. It would be okay to see him again but he said he'd rather get out and make some money!!! I guess it's important!!
I will see you tonight for another story!!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
I just had some apple and Mandy has a cookie and now she is glued to mom! I think she wants more cookies!hehehehehe Mandy would eat non-stop if allowed. The funniest thing I've ever seen is when she is done with her meal and has cottage cheese all over her nose! She certainly is an enthusiastic eater! I tell you if she ever stopped eating, mom would freak out.
Actually she has been doing okay. Mom only had to help her up the stairs once this week so we figure she doing okay.
I will see you tonight for another story!!

  Hello Gizmo~
It's been a usual Sunday Morning! Dad is on his way back to California. He only delivers to a yard in Stockton and then someone else will take the trailer to San Diego. Dad wants to head east since he makes more money driving out there. Don't know why but they pay drivers more to drive on the east coast. I suppose it makes sense to someone!!
Remember that I love you so very much my friend!

  Hello Gizmo~
I'm sitting her giggling with dad over a show called Warehouse 13. He's been watching it on Amazon Prime. You can watch most of it for free but the last season you have to pay for. This is what mom doesn't like about Amazon Prime. There are choices that are free but since we already paid for a year you would think we could watch anything we want on it. They charge anywhere from 14.99 to 19.99 to see the new movies. I guess you are buying a digital download of it. The new TV shows are 1.99 per episode. Does not seem worth it to mom!!
I will see you tonight for another great story!

  Hello Gizmo~
I am busy preening right now. I've been so quiet and happy this morning! It always makes mom take a closer look to make sure I'm okay when I'm being quiet! I just like to keep her guessing!
We had to put the fireplace on for a little while yesterday. It wasn't really cold, just a bit cool for me. Mom has been turning it on every week to keep it cleaned out since we haven't been using it. She put the heater on in the bedroom yesterday but it stinks!hahahahaha
She'll be cleaning that out and then letting the dust burn off while I'm in the living room.
Dad's sleeping right now so she'll probably have to wait until he leaves to do it.
I will see you tonight for our story.

  Hello Gizmo~
Mom went and picked dad up tonight. He has a cold so he came home and took a hot shower and some meds and now he is snoring away! Good thing mom is really tired because that snoring won't bother her tonight!hehehehehe I'm use to it too!
Dad needs to take a 34 hour break so it's good he was delivering so close to home. It was soy milk at the Starbucks warehouse.
Now it's bedtime!

  Hello Gizmo~
New York seems like a very big city! I guess the birds like Central Park since there is so much to eat there. It's nice that so many people are so excited to have the birds there to watch and get to experience nature in such a big city. I was hoping to see a Quaker but I didn't! I have heard there were lots of them that lived out East but perhaps they are not in the city itself! If mom saw one she'd be running around trying to rescue it thinking is was a lost pet!hehehehehehe

  Hello Gizmo~
Mom just spent the last hour on Verizon getting Ian a new phone. He had a flip phone but last night it flipped all the way and came apart in 2 pieces!hehehehehehe It's a very old phone. He is getting a smart phone this time. Dad is the only one who has a contract now. Mom hasn't had one for 5 years. Mom said that Verizon is probably doing the Happy Dance because they have another contract!! hahahahahaha
We saw a Hello Kitty smartphone but mom assures me that I have no use for a smartphone. I suppose she is correct!
I will see you at storytime tonight!

it is another beautiful day here! Mom left early last night because of the fair but it only took her 5 extra minutes so that wasn't bad. She'll have to leaving early until it's done just to be sure she gets there on time. Luckily her drive is pretty short.

It is another pretty day here! I am enjoying all this sunshine. I had a wonderful breakfast and now I'm helping mom figure out what to do with all the chicken we have!
Jennifer and I are watching a silly movie in Chinese! It had a big monster in the water but I really can't tell you what it's all about yet. It is fun to hear Chinese!
I will see you for our story tonight! I am really looking forward to it!

  Hello Gizmo~
The fair is a really big deal around here. Thousand of people come every year from all over. Mom just likes to go visit the animals and buy some scones. They didn't go last year and they probably won't go this year either. They have been to a few shows and it was fun. Very crowded and the rides and amusement park area it very popular. Every school kid in the city gets a free ticket. They has buses at the mall so you don't even have to drive down there. It's only 4 miles away but parking is scarce and it cost a lot. The bus is only a dollar each way.
Mom just hates having to drive by it to get to work. Some nights it's backed up all the way to South Hill so mom gets off and takes the streets. Unfortunately she has to go by there even on the streets to get to work! She has to leave early just to make sure she is on time!
I will see you tonight for another fabulous story!
Remember that I love you my friend!

Oh I have had to restart this computer 4 times now! I do not know what is wrong! It's is very annoying!
The Fair starts tomorrow so mom is going to have to start leaving early for work until it's done. Even if she took the street instead of the freeway, she has to pass the fairgrounds! She has a lit of the performers so she knows when the really big shows are so she can get to work on time!

It's a nice cloudy morning! I've got mom all to myself for a while and I am enjoying the quite! We have lots of laundry to get done and the kitchen to clean up but mom promised I could get some notes out today. I feel so awful when I don't get by to say hello.
The maintenance guy is here to put the folding door back on the laundry area. Ian opened it and it crashed off into the other one. Put a hole in the other one!! I've seen this guy before so I'm okay with him. I'm still going to keep an eye on him!hehehehehehe

I'm sitting here with dad watching a movie called the Blue Max. It's not really very interesting at all. Lots of airplanes and gunfire. I wonder why we aren't watching Rio instead! Lots of fun music in that movie and beautiful birds too! Guess I have to share the TV since dad is not home much!
