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~
Mom still has to run the vacuum by the washer closet but she is going to put me in the night cage first. I get so upset with that thing and then I'll bite mom when she tries to take me out of the playcage! If I'm in the bedroom with the radio on, I don't even hear it! I like it that way much better!!!
See you tonight. I have a great book for us and I hope you will like it!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
Mom baked a cherry pie and it is cooling in the kitchen! I can smell it! I would like to have some but mom says it's way too hot! I hate hearing that! She says that with pizza too! It's not fair to know something is there to munch on and have to wait for it to cool! I wonder if shoving it in the freezer would help????
See you for our story tonight!

  Hello Gizmo~
Mom talked to dad this afternoon and he was coming up over Mt. Shasta. He'll be here sometime tomorrow. He is going to drop the trailer and bring the truck home so he can empty it out. If you are taking more than 4 days off you have to clean out your truck so they can give it to someone else. Dad doesn't mind since he wants another truck anyway!hehehehehe
I know he will be glad to get home and just relax for a week!
I will see you tonight for our story!!
Remember that I love you so much!

  Hello Gizmo~
Mom put some Higgens mix in a baggie to take to work last night and then forgot it! She was running a bit late last night and then tripped on Mandy's quilt in the hallway and fell down! She got rug burn on her knee but it doesn't hurt!
The little bird figured out where the seed was in the pet center and was over there last night. Mom still couldn't get close enough to get him. The manager told her that someone was coming in with a trap so they could get him back outside.
I will see you tonight for our story! I really love that time of the day when I get to spend time with you, Divo, Gabbie, Christine and Dixie! It is so very special!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
That blackbird is still flying around in mom's store. He seems to stay around the indoor garden which is right across from the furniture pad! The furniture pad had different grouping of furniture displays set up and the bird seems to like the leather sofa set where the TV is playing The Polar Express! He has good taste since mom and I think that is a lovely movie! Mom is going to take a bit of my Higgins with her tonight and see if she can coax him to the garden doors! If not at least he will have some food to eat!!
See you tonight for our story!

  Hello Gizmo~
Well mom says it feels like Christmas now because she stood in line at the post office and went to Walmart on a Saturday during the season!hahahahahah
She forgot the kitty litter otherwise she would not have gone near the place. It's across the street from where Ian work so she grabbed it after she dropped Ian off. The mall is just a nightmare and mom is glad she goes the opposite direction to get home. Both off ramps for the mall were back up and the parking lot looks completely full! That is way too many people in one spot!Hehehehe
See you tonight for our story!
Remember that I love you my friend!

  Hello Gizmo~
We have had to get more laundry done today and there is still one load in the washer and one in the dryer! Ian is home from work now so he is going to take care of it for mom! It's a quilt and some towels so we don't have to worry about him throwing it on the sofa and it getting all wrinkled! He doesn't seem to mind wrinkles but mom does!!
See you tonight for our story!

  Hello Gizmo~
We got the card from your mom today and it is just beautiful! We love cards! It is the only part of Christmas that mom still does faithfully. We have a shoji screen behind the sofa and mom put all the cards there so I can look at them all! I don't get to look too closely since I would try to shred them up! Mom wouldn't like that at all!!
I was busy this morning shredding the paper at the bottom of my play cage! I've been doing this for a few days and it always worries mom! She thinks I'm trying to make a nest and she tells me we don't do that! I wonder why? I think it looks perfectly lovely but I know that in the morning there will be new paper down there! That is alright since I will have plenty of time to rip it up again!!hehehehehe
See you tonight!!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Gizmo~
Dad called this morning and he is in Indiana still. He is going to South Dakota and then on to California. He should be getting home in about a week! It will be nice to have him around. They are going to do another turkey for Christmas eve since dad missed Thanksgiving! He is really looking forward to that! They always do prime rib on Christmas and mom makes a really good one! She doesn't like it much but she can cook it!hahahaha
I'll just be happy to have more corn bread and maybe another fruit salad! It will just be nice to be home with the family and maybe mom can get some sleep! That's all she wants for Christmas!hahahahahaha
I will see you for another story tonight!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
Dad texted mom this morning early to let her know that Jennifer's kindle has shipped! He woke her up! He didn't remember that she was off Monday and Tuesday nights this week. With mom's schedule lately, she can hardly remember when she is working and when she is off!!
Dad is in North Carolina on his way to Indiana. At least the weather is good for him. He is requesting time off tomorrow so they are suppose to get him home in a week after that. He is going to take 10 days off this time so he'll be here for Christmas. He and mom decided to buy a new computer chair for Christmas. Dad will want something much fussier than mom but that is the way it always is!!
I will see you tonight for our story time!

  Hello Gizmo~
Mom and I are watching a movie on Netflix and just getting my notes done. She and Ian went to the mall because mom wanted to find a shipper envelope for a calendar. She found a wrapping kind but not the kind you can mail. She is just going to get one of those bubble wrapper from work.
They had lunch there and Ian bought mom some ice cream from Dairy Queen! Mom would eat ice cream everyday if she could! She loves that stuff! I've never had any but she seems to like it!

  Hello GIzmo~
Mom got the pantry cleaned out yesterday and found that she has 9 container of frosting!!! Some of them were marked down after a re-set at work so she grabbed them when they were 1/2 off! She is going to look to see what else you can do with frosting other then frosting a cake! Sometimes she makes cupcakes but not that often! She says this is why she has to clean the pantry at least once a month! Just to see whats in there! Lots of corn bread I am happy to report! Wouldn't want to run short on that!
See you tonight for another story!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
I finally gave up on searching for a way out of the play cage and I'm back on my perch. I think I might need a nap after all that hard work! Mom says it's better if I stay up there but she is still going to lock Merlin in the bedroom when she leaves. She started doing that when everyone is going to be gone. She says she can't trust either of us to behave!! Sounds like and insult to me but I have to admit that she is correct about it! I would just love to give that cat a big old nip!hehehehe
See you at our story time tonight!!
Remember that I love you buddy!

  Hello Gizmo~
Dad called this morning and he is in a place called Greenville Illinois! Mom looked it up on the computer! They have 7 dollar stores within 30 miles there! That is a lot!
We have the Dollar tree up the street and mom loves looking around there! Out in Greenville they have a few Dollar Generals. Jennifer told us that Dollar General is not everything a dollar. She went to one when she was in Florida last year. Mom likes to get frames there for my pictures and sometimes they have almond cookies! I love almond cookies! Mom always lets me have the part with the almond on it!
It is time for our story now so come on over!!
Remember that I love you my friend!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
I have had my veggies and now I am waiting for the spaghetti to be done so I can help mom eat that!
I'm being very fussy right now since Ian walked into the room and then left! I make a huge noise when he comes into the room and then I fuss when he leaves. He told me I was being a drama queen and of course I started to laugh! He always says funny things to me and I always laugh so mom can't figure out why I throw a fit every time he comes into the room! I guess I am just being contrary and since I'm an Amazon, it's perfectly okay!
I will see you for another story tonight!

Jennifer had to go to work early today before mom even got home! Mom didn't notice the note on the TV for an hour!hahahahaha
The TV is mounted on the wall and you do have to look up to see the note but still! It's white and the TV is black!
The lady who runs the daycare where Jennifer works is going to Reno this week so I guess Jennifer is going to be working early for a few day. The lady's niece won the trip and is taking her and her husband with her. Mom's been there a few times and I bet they are going to have lots of fun!
