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 will enjoy Phoenix. Mom's brother lives near there and mom is always telling dad he should call him when he is going to be in town for a day. Mom hasn't seen her brother in a very long time and he is not very good at keeping in touch. His wife text mom and keeps her informed about the boys! He has 2 sons, both grade school age. The youngest one is in kindergarten and the older one is in 3rd grade. Mom's brother is 10 years younger. He's the baby of the family!!
I will see you tonight for another story!

  Hello Gizmo~
Mom talked to dad twice today! He sent her a picture of New Mexico. Very blue sky there. He's on his way to Phoenix again.
He can't deliver until Thursday so he will just hang out there for a day. It's the headquarters for Swift and they have a very nice place there. There is even a cafeteria! Dad just went to the market and got lots of food so he'll probably just hang out in the truck anyway.
I will see you tonight for our story!

Tomorrow is the day they should come back and fill the pool up! I can't wait to see it! It's been so very quite out there since Thursday and I keep looking out and mom tells me not yet! It should be very interesting to see how it's done!

  Hello Gizmo~
Mom has to work her regular work week. She thought the manager would have her take an extra day off for the holiday but he says he has plenty of hours so mom is going to work! She has a one day ad for Memorial day and she gets paid time and a half!
The one day ad has blenders at 50% off so mom is going to buy one. We had a very nice Black & Decker but dad threw out the screw cap for the bottom and since the model was not being made anymore, mom couldn't get a replacement part! Ian has been doing research and they have decided on the Oster 12 speed. Mom thinks the red one would look great but every other appliance is stainless steel so she will stick with that! I don't know if I am going to like it or not since mom says they are noisy! Smoothies would be good though!

  Hello Gizmo~
We were reading about the boy in NY who was accepted to all 8 Ivy league colleges. He rejected all of them and picked Alabama. It may sound strange but I think the kid is doing the right thing since he can get a scholarship to Alabama and would have to go into serious debt to pick an Ivy league school! He is smart to not start out his career in debt! I bet he is going to do great. I wish everyone had a chance at college but it is so very expensive that some people will not be able to afford it.

I keep having to recheck to make sure I get the votes in! It's funny how some pages are just fine and others don't have the pictures showing! I figured out that I can go back and the pictures are usually there. I do enjoy seeing everyone's pictures!

  Hi ya Gizmo~
Mom talked to dad this morning and he is in Tennessee. He said it rained badly down there. Mom told him he should feel right at home with the rain!
He told mom that no one in that state could drive! Dad says that about every state. There was some construction going on and everyone was slowing down to look! I guess with as much as he drives we can let him whine a bit!
He was listening to a book that he had to return soon and wanted to finish. It's to think something you don't physically have has to be returned but I guess they do that with electronic books too!!
I will see you tonight for our story!

  Hello Gizmo~
We have not heard from dad today but mom knows he is in Missouri since she checked his bank account!! It is a strange way to find out where he is but it works! She doesn't call him too much because you never know if he is sleeping, even during the day! Most truck drivers like to drive at night because there is less traffic to deal with. Up here they are banned from driving in Seattle during rush hours. Mom heard a piece on NPR about some places banning them during 2am to 6am because they didn't want them to drive at night. I guess they figure they wouldn't have enough sleep and might have an accident! I think that can happen to them any time of the day!

  Hi Gizmo~~
I hope dad gets to go somewhere interesting in St. Louis too. He's been there a bunch of times but he usually only gets to see the stuff that is close to the truck stops. If he doesn't have a trailer he can go places but with the trailer there is limited parking. I think it would be great to see other cities and try out different kinds of food!

  Hello Gizmo~~
Mom just got off the phone with dad. He is in Texas on his way up to St. Louis. Mom was just reading about Panera bread online this morning and they started out as the St. Louis Bread company. Dad knows where that is and had no idea it was Panera. They donate all the bread that is left at the end of the day to the food bank! They call it their daily Dough-nation! I think that is so cool and I wish more companies would do it. Mom's store donates bread and the bakery stuff too. It is much better to donate food than to throw it away! I think that too many people are wasteful when it comes to food these days. Mom was raised by a mother who grew up during the depression and they never wasted anything at their house!

Mom and Aunt Theresa talk at least once a month. We love hearing Puffin and the macaws making all sorts of noise! Unlike me, Ceasaur doesn't talk much. He does yell at the others when they are being too loud! The little macaw Greenie laughs a lot. He is so cute!
Aunt Theresa has been working on her yard too. She has a koi pond and had to go get another pump for it. I hope she post some pictures because I would really like to see those fish!
I will see you tonight for our story!

We got some cleaning done this morning and a few blogs too. Mom took a nap while Jennifer was at work and then picked up pizza for dinner! I am getting the rest of my notes done now. They are not very interesting since not much is going on tonight! That's okay! We have our story to look forward too!

I helped mom clean out George and Gracie today. They sure were dirty! Mom cleans them at least twice a week but sometime they just get very messy and have to be cleaned right away. They are both very happy now and enjoying their basking light. George came back over to the corner and starting banging like he does when he wants lunch. I think he thought mom had forgotten that she already fed them and he figured he could get more! It didn't work!hahahaha He really is a sweet guy!

Oh mom has to be in the mood to go clothes shopping. She would rather go to a book store and hang out there! She will get over there soon because when it starts to get hot, she is going to want another non-flannel shirt. One of the ones she has now is make from silky material and she hates it! She only wears it if she gets lazy and doesn't do the wash!hahahahaha

Dad has probably caught up on his sleep by now so I'm sure he's just fine. This is a new truck that they gave him and at first he didn't like it much. It's an automatic transmission and he has never driven one before. He said for the first couple of weeks he kept slamming his left leg down!hahahahahaha If the truck keeps giving him problems they will send him to a terminal and he will switch to another truck. I guess it's a pretty huge job to keep all those trucks running well!

Mom talked to dad this afternoon and believe it or not his truck broke down again! That is 3 times since he left last Saturday. Hopefully they have now fixed everything! He was in Montana on his way to Illinois. He didn't get much sleep since he had to wait 8 hours for the truck to be fixed. He is hoping to get far enough tonight so he can get some sleep before he has to deliver! It's been a rough week for him!
I will see you very soon for our story!!

Mom did get some sleep when she got home but she could sure use more! She'll get some tonight and she only has to work 3 hours tomorrow night so she'll get some sleep when she gets home.
