I was on the floor of Pottsee's Exotics, a very nice bird store in Bellflower, California. I was in a small cage when I saw two people walk in. The lady sat down and looked down and noticed me and asked the shop owner what kind of bird I was and he told her that I am a Cinnamon Green-Cheeked Conure and I'm not very common.
Then a man came over and the owner's wife put me on his hand. I just sat there, looking around, not too sure what to do. The man handed me to the lady and she held me for a while and then put me on a stand.
Well, I saw my chance and launched myself off the stand and climbed up the book racks. The owner's wife had to get me down. But she gave me back to the man and he talked to me real quietly for a while.
Well, that was all she wrote. I went home with my new mom and dad and now I'm part of the La Habra flock.

Hi! My name is GINGER

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from La Habra, CA.

Ginger Bird, Gin-Gin, Buzz-Saw. Buzzy, Feathered Beaver.

5 years old   F

Green-Cheeked Conure

Tropical fruit treat sticks, Apples. Anything made of wood. Dad's nose.

On the top of her cage or on top of her neighbors cages.

Anything strange that is brought into my field of view.

They talk to me and let me sit in the living room with them and watch TV. That's kind of cool. I also have lots of wooden toys.

Every time her water is changed, she takes a bath in it. Anything made of wood has a very short life span.
She also serves as the La Habra flock's "Early Warning" system. Anytime she sees or hears something that she feels is a threat, which is just about everything, she sounds the "Alarm".

Every water cup is a bath tub..

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a bright sunny warm morning after we lost our power again last night, with the highs for the day of 83 and the low of 72,it's 84 right now.Mom got us up and fed us,cleaned our cages and vacuumed our room and the rest of the house.Then she got a phone call from someone who wanted their cockatiels wings clipped.They came down around 11:00am and Mom got the feisty tiel and got bit to shreds but she did get the flights clipped. They will be back again in October before they leave to go to Florida.They had wanted to check us all out and when they went into the Bird Room,Kallie was out and flew at one of the ladies right in the face!Mom was mortified but the lady was all right.They all just couldn't believe all the ribbons we got for our shows and how old we all were!They wanted Mom to give them a demonstration of how our harnesses worked and Mom had Dixie show them how it worked and they then wanted to see our car seat so Mom showed them what that was and they all wanted one for their tiel.They just didn't know how many things there were for us fids out there.The 2 ladies and the one guy that came told Mom that their Tiel flew off from them and was out in the wild for four days!Mom told them they were lucky to get him back at all!They had gone to a vet in Florida who clipped the tiel's wings and they did a chop job on him and he still flew away,that vet never clipped the proper flights and clipped the covert feathers also!When Mom clipped the tiel's feathers she showed them how he glides easily to the ground and doesn't get hurt by dropping like a rock from a bad clipping.
Mom is home with us for the day and hopefully now it will a quiet uneventful afternoon til dad comes home.Mom ordered our fold'n'go travel cages this morning and they should be here within 5-9 days!
Skin bro came over tonight while Mom was in the shower and he got Candida out,she got really scared and flew and lost all her tail feathers,all twelve of them,now she looks like a duck!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses!Loving you always and forever,sweet Ginger

This morning was a bright sunny warm day,we awoke with a beautiful day with very little humidity so Mom decided to do laundry and did two loads and the sheets and she got it all hung out on the line,then she made sandwiches for my dad for the work week,and then each one of us got our nails done while Dixie and Kallie got their beaks done out on the deck.Dad is starting our BBQ and Mom got some smoked turkey sausage,pork tenderloin and if the skin sibs come she'll put on hamburgers and hot dogs.The traffic is really brutal here now and even the expressways are all jammed up and the backup going off the Bridges are over ten miles long now.I guess everyone wanted to leave here early to avoid the Bridge back up.
Mom and dad had their BBQ but we weren't allowed to come outside as it was still way too hot and the humidity was back again.The skin sibs never made it down,skin sis didn't have a ride and skin bro didn't want to deal with the Bridge backup.Mom and dad brought the laundry in and it dried really well and Mom put the fresh line dried sheets on the bed.As soon as the sun goes down and there's shade on the deck we'll be going out for a little while.It was a nice quiet day here and we all enjoyed every minute of it!The highs for the day were 84 the lows of 69.At 8:16 its 73.
Wishing you a grey day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses!Loving you always and forever,sweet Ginger,Love Dixie

This morning was another bright sunny hot summer morning with the highs for the day of 87 the lows of 66.Right now its 86.Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and swept our room again as it's still too hot to use the vacuum.Then she and dad took off for Ocean Lot to pick up bird seed for the wild birds.The traffic was really brutal out there and it was bumper to bumper traffic and you couldn't go more than 10-20mph along all the roads here.They were headed off to Falmouth.It took them over an hour just to get to Falmouth from here which really only takes about 25 minutes at the most.It looks like every state in the world is here today!After they got through picking up eight 20lb bags of wild bird seed,(2 were for Nana)they went to Dollar Tree to get popcorn for Dad,he was all out.When they got there the popcorn was all wiped out and there were hardly any left so Mom bought 7 boxes of that.They then got back in the car and back into traffic to go to Nana's house so they could drop off the bird seed to her and my dad filled the bird feeder for her and hung it out back for her so her birds can come and get something to eat!Then they got back into the traffic and went home.They left at 10:00am and didn't return til 1:30pm.Pretty sad when two stops takes you nearly all day! Mom has one more thing to do before she can stay home for the rest of the day with us.
Mom and dad finally came home and we all got to go outside and join them for dinner.Dad ordered a Hawaiian Pizza and Mom got a veggie melt sub!Dad kept sharing us with his pizza crust!We had a good time watching the birds come and go and people driving by!Now we are waiting for Mom to come and snuggle with us!

Oh does that sound so good that pork shoulder strips in the Ninja with all the garlic and onions and BBQ sauce!It sure must've been so good to have it disappear fast!LOL!
This morning was another bright hot sunny morning with the highs for the day being 86,the lows of 67.At 7:00pm its 81 degrees.Mom got all the trash collected and the recyclables put in her car then she got us all up,cleaned our cages and fed us and swept our room,then took our trash out to the car.Then she got Dixie all harnessed up and got him in the car seat and then Mom and Dixie took off for Nana's.Once there,Dixie got settled in his cage in the sun room and Nana gave him a good breakfast with scrambled eggs.Mom loaded Nana's trash and recycs in Nana's car along with all of our trash and they took off for the dump,from there they went to the Thrift store to find a baby gate for Bella,so Nana can let her out more often,but there was none there,from there they went to the bank,then Roche Bros. grocery store where both Mom and Nana got a few things,then to Stop&Shop where they got a few more things that were needed and on sale.They went back to Nana's house and had a nice lunch of tuna and salad that Nana made,with Mom's chocolate zucchini bread and rum raisin ice cream for dessert.Dixie and our cousins all got some fresh fruit of apples,oranges and cranberries for our snack.Then Mom and Nana were trying to figure out how to untangle an old hockey net of skin bro's to use for a barrier for Bella but after they both worked on that and got it to work out a little,Nana decided not to use it as Bella may have gotten herself caught in the netting part of it.It was 4:00pm and Nana sent Mom and Dixie home before the traffic got too bad.When Mom finally got home,she unpacked the car and put everything away,then went to clean our cages and give us our snacks as our Dad just got home himself. Mom then made Dad leftover elbow macaroni with butter and cinnamon and sugar for dinner.They sat on the deck and we were able to all go out and join them and enjoy the last of the sunshine and watch all the wild birds coming and going from our yard.We got to stay outside and enjoy the view til around 7:00pm.

This morning was another hot bright sunny morning with the highs for the day at 85 and the lows of 70 for tonight,right now its 81 and partially cloudy with a breeze out there.Mom got us all up,fed and cleaned our cages,and swept the floor.Then she scrubbed both bathrooms and was contemplating on vacuuming the house but decided against it for today as its too hot to be running a hot vacuum only to make the house even hotter.Mom collected the trash for tomorrow and put the recyclables in her car.It doesn't look like we'll be getting outside again today because of the high humidity.Maybe tonight for dinner when the sun is getting ready to leave the sky and its a lot cooler we can join the parents for dinner on the deck.Its a very uneventful day here and Mom and all of us are happy for that.Lately having a nice quiet boring day with Mom while she works around the house it quite alright with us!Its more than alright with Mom,she looks forward to these kinds of days!
How annoying is that to have lost your power for three hours!And having to reset all the clocks,vcr's coffee makers,electronics is such a pain in the tail feathers!Not to mention all the food in the freezers defrosting and refreezing again.UGGGGH!!!!

How awful for that mylar balloon to short out all those neighborhoods and the police station and all those traffic signals,what a dangerous situation that was and in an intersection too!It sure seems like your sweet daddy's day was full from the start.And poor Momma Lori in the dark heat in the basement of the animal control office.What an upsetting day that was!
This morning was as bright sunny morning and quite warm,the highs were 89 the lows of 72.Mom got us all up and fed us and cleaned our cages.Then she swept our room as it was way too hot to vacuum.Skin sis got dropped off by a friend and they got Dixie harnessed and in the car then they all went to Nana's,picked her up and they headed back to Hyannis to have breakfast at IHOP,from there they went to BB&B so Mom could bring back the steamer she got as it wasn't the kind of steamer she thought it was.Nana got some KCups as she ran out of them with her 20% off coupon.From there they went to Nana's eye dr. to straighten out a bill but they weren't there today.Then they went to Cape Cod Creamery and skin sis bought everyone an ice cream,skin bro met them there but he couldn't stay as he was still working.Both Mom and Nana got soft serve,Mom got chocolate,Nana got twist,and skin sis got Marstons Mills mint.From there they went to Joann's but none of them found what they wanted.Then they went to a pet shop in Hyannis to look for cages for Bella,but they really cut their bird department all the way down and had really nothing at all left in anything for birds.Then from there Mom got her car filled as it was riding on fumes.Gas in Hyannis is $2.78.Mom spent $22.00 filling her car.From there they went back to Mashpee and decided to do the rest of their errands on Friday as Nana was too tired and starting to be in such pain again.They took skin sis back to her apartment and Mom came back to Nana's and got Dixie harnessed and ready to go home after they had a bottle of cold water,it was so hot here today and getting in and out of the hot car was awful.It took a while for the a/c to really be felt.Mom fixed Nana's shower head for her before she went home and then she got Dixie in the car seat and went home in the traffic.When she got home she got dad some dinner,leftover elbow mac and sauce and cheese,cleaned our room and swept it again as Candida chewed through the pizza box Mom had put on her grate for her so she would't get her head stuck again.After Mom finished with the dishes,she and Dad sat outside on the deck to enjoy dinner in the breeze that was coming up.

This morning was a bright sunny morning with bright sunshine with the highs for the day of 81,lows of 68.It's 81 right now.Mom got us all up,fed us our bean mix and cleaned our cages and swept our room. It's already getting way too hot to do any vacuuming or work around the house.The humidity is quite high and the hardwood floors are feeling damp and wet to the touch and the pellets in our feed bowls are soft and soggy.Mom is going to do as much as she can with her chores before she caves and closes the windows and puts the A/C on.We will probably not be going outside today because of the intense heat,Mom won't take us out anymore unless the temperatures are cool enough.Mom is home with us all day again today and its going to be a boring day here hopefully!So far no ones come over or called.We love our boring days with Mom,at least we have her attention all day even though she may be busy with the chores!

Mom so agrees with your sweet daddy that the older songs are the best as they have lyrics that mean something and the melody lines are something you can't help but get into!Mom just cringes whenever she hears those rap crap songs,if you can even call them that!YUCK!When we hear one of those it makes us yell and scream and squawk so loud!Oh to have three front lawns sounds like alot of work especially in the heat!It was good that he got rewarded for all his troubles with the lawn and other chores with a nice meal at Senior Compo's!
This morning was a dull dark,dreary,damp humid rainy day here with the highs for the day of 77 the lows of 69 and right now its 75.Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages.She had to strip Candida's cage again as usual as she's still in her chew mode of getting to all the papers down in her grate.Mom is trying to cover the grate so she won't get anymore ideas of getting her head stuck in it again and she still goes and chews the paper onto and underneath the grate.Mom put a pizza box flattened out on top of the grate and paper to see how fast she can get through that.
Mom is home with us all day and she sterilized all our water bottles and did some chores in the house.Kallie is in the dining room screaming at all the neighborhood cats that keep coming into our yard to bother the birds that are trying to eat and bathe here,what's with all these cats coming around today,first a black one then a grey one.Dad saw black feathers here the other day in our yard,these cat owners should keep their cats inside their own homes so they don't come around killing all our birds.
We are having a boring day here but we don't mind it at all.Mom is happy to be home and quiet with no one bugging her so she can get some stuff done.Skin bro was trying to video chat with her this morning and it kept kicking them both off and then freezing them up!It must be this muggy humid weather!

This morning was a dull,dark grey morning with the highs of 75,the lows of 69.Its 75 right now and no sunshine.Mom got us all up,fed us our bean mix,cleaned our cages and swept our room and no sooner had she done that than skin bro was ringing the doorbell.He came and stayed till well after 2:00pm and played with Candida the whole time he was here,he was waiting for the UHaul truck he wanted to come in so he could go back to his condo and load the rest of his belongings and move to his apartment in Plymouth.Mom was just starting to make some Cranberry Pudding and blueberry muffins and date nut sugar cookies for my dad.So as skin bro played with Candida and was waiting to call the UHaul place Mom finished getting her baking done and in the oven.Then she washed all the dishes and got everything put away and skin bro left and then she put everything she had baked into containers.It tried raining a little but nothing much came down,just enough to spot up the deck and deck chairs.Mom and dad had dinner and ate on the deck but we couldn't go out with them as it was too late and the sun had long gone by then.Mom got up early enough but the day sure went fast and she didn't really get too much done today,maybe tomorrow will be a better day to get some work done as no one will be home by then and skin bro should be in his new place by tonight.Our power had gone out last night so dad had to fix all the clocks again.
What a wonderful time we had last night at the Milonga,the food and the gathering of the Elders was so much fun and so interesting to attend!What a wonderful loving tradition that is and we thank Kiddo,Aunt Pam,Taz and Aunt Teri for making our headdress pics and SamIAm and all those who made it happen for us to have an enjoyable evening!
Your sweet daddy is a force to be reckoned with and the town of LaHabra wouldn't dare mess with him!We should have him here!We have a new young policeman that just entered the force living on our street only in his twenties and he's already been handling many drunk driving incidents,accidents etc.He's a sweet kid and Mom has known him since he was a baby.Poor Mama Lori still working on all those FI cards.She's so awesome to be staying on them day after day.She deserves a medal for getting them all done!

This morning began as a sunny day but soon turned into a dark overcast and cloudy day here,the highs for the day being 73,the lows of 61,right now its 70 and getting darker by the minute,we are expecting rain here again today.Mom overslept and got to us late and we were all screaming as we were all hungry.Mom finally came down and cleaned our cages and fed us and cleaned our room.Then she went around and vacuumed the house and is waiting on skin bro to contact her about taking Nana to church later on this afternoon.Its a nice quiet day so far with no excitement we hope,I think we've all had enough of that for this week.My dad just joined AAA for our upcoming trip just in case anything should happen and Mom now just has to figure out when we will be leaving and then packing for that.But she has to first find out when skin sis will get her car back so she can be there for Nana as Mom is nervous about leaving her alone.Mom didn't want to go without her but the trip will be way too long for her to endure and she will be in such pain having to sit for so long.Mom still has to figure that one out.But other than that its a boring day here and both Mom and dad will be home with us all day.Mom is keeping a watchful eye out on Candida,we don't want a headless baby fister.LOL!Mom got to get us all out on the deck tonight but it was freezing!It's 66 right now so we didn't spend too much time out there,just enough time for my Parronts to finish eating dinner and get back inside!
Your sweet daddy is simply amazing!Would my Mom love to have him here,he does everything!Don't you just love BB&B!Mom gets those coupons every week in the mail!
Sorry for the short blog today but Mom is trying to get all our visits in so we can be on time to the Milonga tonight!

  er head between the bars and after pulling the grate out a little and getting a light so she could see better,after what seemed hours,(15 minutes actually)got her head free.Mom is now going to paper the grate so she won't do that ever again,even though she'll keep chewing the paper.Then she took all of us out on the deck to dine with them.It started getting colder out there and looked like rain again.Mom washed the dishes and finally is here to bring us to our visits.Now we're waiting to snuggle with Mom.Your sweet Momma works so hard on those FI cards and they are so lucky to have her there helping out!Your sweet daddy is so amazing at all the things he works on and fixes,now if only we lived closer he could probably get Mom's license plate light screws off so she can get her light changed!If only you knew just how much we love all of you for being there for us,you are our lifeline and can always make us and Mom smile whenever things are going crazy around here!We will always be here for you,your love and friendship mean the world to us!

This morning was a sunny coolish morning with the highs being 79 and the lows of 61 and at 7:00pm its 70.Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages,swept our room and then she got the trash and the recyclables all gathered and loaded in her car.She harnessed Dixie and got him in the car seat and off they went to Nana's.When Mom got there,she got Dixie settled in his cage in the sunroom and then they left to pick up skin sis in Falmouth,while they were there,Nana wanted to go out for breakfast so they went to Friendly's and had the Big Two Do for $4.99.It comes with two eggs,two sausages,bacon or canadian bacon and two big pancakes,toast,or brioche french toast.Mom got the one with canadian bacon and pancakes,(she brought those home for us,Nana got the brioche with bacon and skin sis got pancakes and sausages.Both Mom and Nana got free coffee as they were seniors!After they finished eating there,they went to WalMart and Nana got a few items,skin sis got some thing and Mom got some windshield wash for bugs(dad will need it for their trip to PA,NJ and NY).Mom was looking for a nice mop for her floors but they didn't have any.Then they went to take skin sis back to her apartment,the traffic was horrible and because of the road construction it was really backed up with only one side going at a time.Mom dropped skin sis off and then they came back to Nana's,collected all the trash and recycs and Mom put everything in Nana's car,Mom cut down the tall bushes in Nana's front yard so she could see backing out of the driveway and they took all that to the dump with them.From the dump they went to Stop&Shop where they picked up more things,Mom picked up some frozen fish along with Nana and some chicken strips already made that were on sale,when they got to the register the check out guy rang the fish up wrong.They were supposed to be $2.99 and he charged Mom $5.99.Mom went to the device desk and it took quite a long time before that lady got back to Mom,apparently she had to go back to the back of the store where the fish were and check and sure enough Mom was right so she gave Mom all her money back,so she got them for free.Then they went back to Nana's and Mom unloaded the car and brought all Nana's things in and her shopping she put in her car.Nana was so nervous about Mom staying too late and she made Mom leave for home so she wouldn't get into trouble with the crazy drivers!As Mom was backing out of Nana's driveway,it began to dump rain really hard,which made Mom even more nervous.By the time Mom got home the rain had stopped and the sun came back out again.When Dixie and Mom came home Mom got dad his dinner and dad had already given the rest of us our snacks of peanuts.Mom cleaned our cages,Candida tore hers all up again,swept the room and put the groceries away.Mom had got Dixie and Kallie out and went back to get Candida and she had her head caught in the grate of her cage and Mom was panicking on how to get her out.She was so afraid to squish h

  Hi Ginger
Mom and skin sis and all of us here can't thank you enough for all the prayers you are sending this way for us,skin is is really upset hoping that her car won't be totaled.
Today was a beautiful day with the highs for the day of 79 and the lows of 62.The sun was out nicely and it wasn't too hot or too humid! Mom got up after a restless night of worrying about Skin sis.She cleaned out our cages and vacuumed our room and the house and washed the bathroom and kitchen floors,then the neighbor down the street came over as Mom was getting ready to wash the dining room floor.She had a baby sparrow in her hand that she wanted Mom to help her feed.She couldn't get the baby sparrow to open his mouth to get any food in,she was chopping up worms and bugs and trying to feed the baby bird but he wouldn't accept it.So Mom found some human baby cereal and she mixed some of that up for him and got one of Dixie's syringes from the vet and filled it with the cereal and the baby bird finally opened his mouth and had quite a bit of it!Mom gave the neighbor the whole canister of the baby cereal for the baby bird.The neighbor stayed on the deck and talked with Mom for several hours so when Mom finally got to go back into the house it was well after 2:00pm.Mom just had time to rewash the floors that she was in the middle of doing when the neighbor came over.Then she beat out the kitchen area rugs and collected some of the trash for tomorrow,skin sis came over with Mom's garage remote and Mom gave her license back and the card for the accident report.After she left it was time for dad to come home and dinner to be made,and for us to have our afternoon snack.Skin sis found out today that the other party that hit her has to pay her medical bills and a loaner car.But her car just might get totaled,we are so hoping that it won't be so as she loves her car.But Mom told her that if she has to get another car she'll have a good time with it just the same.And it will get her to work and back.
We are apologizing for the short blog tonight and a fast one at that but Mom's headache is getting to be close to her eyes again and making it hard to concentrate.Mom is going to try and get to most of all our blogs,she feels so bad for not being able to spend more time.Just know that we love you all so much for always being there for us.Maybe when things settle down again Mom can spend some time with us and let us visit without rushing off.At least we got to enjoy some time on the deck late this afternoon with Mom and dad while they ate dinner,we saw a hawk come over and clear out the yard but Mom kept us safe.The hawk flew off and the birds came back one by one.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses!Loving you always and forever,sweet Ginger!Love Dixie

  Hi Ginger
Please forgive us for the short visit today,but Mom and skin sis got into a bad accident on the way home to Mom's house.They were a minute or two away from Mom's house when an idiot in a big cargo van came flying out of the side street and smashed into the passenger side of skin sis's car and it was such a mess.Skin sis was so upset and got really hurt,it was a mess,traffic got tied up and then there were ambulances,Fire rescue and police on the scene.It was about 5:30pm and a nurse came up and checked her out.Mom got a ride home in the fire rescue truck with Dixie and skin skis went in the ambulance to the Hospital and then Mom had to get dad and he took Mom to the hospital to find skin sis and they were there for hours while they waited for the X-rays to come through.Skin sis was in so much pain they shot her up with oxycontin?Then by the time skin sis got out of the hospital it was close to nine pm.Mom's stomach is a mess and skin sis is so upset because she won't have a car to get to work and now she has to go through the insurance company and get her car towed to the repair shop.We apologize for not being here,Mom is so upset and so tired and her head is killing her.Mom will take us all back tomorrow. Love,Dixie

  Hi Ginger
I don't think there's nothing your sweet amazing daddy can't fix and I'll bet everything he does looks just like new!He's so talented!
This morning was a dull cloudy overcast morning with the highs for the day at 86 and the lows at 67,its 81 right now.Mom got us all up,fed and cleaned our cages,she had to strip Candida's cage again as she chewed right through everything again.Then she swept our room and made some chocolate zucchini bread and some sweet potato muffins.After she cleaned up the kitchen from that,she went around the house going through things she could get rid of and take to the dump,cleaning up more clutter,it seems it never ends.Then dad called her to tell her he's got long line painting again tonight and he shouldn't be gone the whole night so Mom got the coffee maker ready to go as he'll only need a thermos of coffee this time and not the whole cooler lunch box.At least today isn't as stifling as yesterday was and not as intense heat coming at you and the humidity is lower.Mom is home with us all day again today and even though she's been busy,we're just so happy that she's here with us,nothing exciting going on again today and another boring day,but we're all happy about that!Late this afternoon the sun came out and everything started heating up again and it was too hot to use the oven again so Mom just reheated the BBQ'd hot dogs left over from the grill and made mashed potatoes and corn and had some chocolate zucchini bread for desert.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hi Ginger
Mom isn't taking us outside today at all,its way too hot and she's even got the a/c running in the tv room all day which she doesn't usually put on til the night time,the rest of the house is so hot!That's quite some rainfall you got yesterday!Izzy is a lucky fid to have the first pick of strawberries that Bob brought over.I sure do hope that Stewart Anderson's was a/c'd.
This morning is another hot humid day with the highs for the day of91 and the lows of 67.Its 91 right now.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and Candida tore her cage all apart again and chewed every piece of paper she could find again so Mom had to strip her cage in the heat and get that all done.After she fed us our bean mix she swept our room and then she sterilized all our water bottles and waited for my dad to come home from work,he's been gone all night.Then Mom got our dad something to eat,cleaned our play gyms up and then swept the kitchen and dining room floors as she isn't going to add more heat with vacuuming today.Its way too hot for us to be outside and if Dixie got heat stroke yesterday Mom isn't going to take anymore chances with the heat.Mom is keeping the TV room a/c on so she can come in and cool off between her house chores.Candida and Dixie got to sleep with Mom last night while our dad was gone and Kallie slept in his sleeping box.It was nice to be sleeping in a cool room.Mom's home with us all day today and so is dad so its a boring day here,really quiet and Mom is getting a chance to catch up on things in the house that she didn't get to do yesterday.As long as Mom's home with us,we are happy.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses!Loving you always and forever,sweet Ginger,Love Dixie

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a bright sunny and hot humid morning with the highs of 81 and the lows of 71. Right now its 75 at 8:00pm.Skin sis called Mom early this morning and told her that she was coming down with our frother and fister and her laundry.Mom was busy making dad his sandwiches for work for the week and getting all the grilling meats marinaded in balsamic vinegar.She took out hamburgers,hot dogs,thin sliced turkey cutlets,and three chicken breasts.Skin sis came down and Mom got the laundry in and then went out to start grilling,she had taken us all outside on the deck so we could join in.It was so hot here that even though skin sis kept spraying us Dixie still got heatstroke and Mom had to rush him inside and get him cooled off.As soon as he was settled in his cage and feeling better,Mom went back outside to finish grilling and serving everyone and then as everyone was eating Mom went down the cellar and got the laundry and brought it outside with skin sis and they hung the laundry on the line and as it was 3 o'clock in the afternoon and very muggy the clothes never dried so after Mom finished the dishes and cleaned everything up both skin sis and Mom had to go back out to get the laundry off the line and throw it all in the dryer.Mom went down after a half hour and got the clothes that were dried and let the towels and the heavier clothes finish drying.Mom folded the clothes and then went back out with skin sis for a while,then she went back downstairs to get the rest of the laundry that were dried and brought them back up and folded them and put skin sis's in her basket.Then skin sis took home most of the leftovers and she left to pick up skin bro in Hyannis.She didn't leave until after 7:00pm.Mom came in and cleaned our cages and gave us our snack late.Mom is now getting my dad ready to go to work tonight in an hour for the long line painting.Mom is so tired and hopes that tomorrow will be a quiet day.
That sure is alot of wine!19 bottles.Mom was at a wine tasting party in Virginia and she couldn't believe that it is the glass that will make or break the taste of the wine also.How awesome to get to keep the set of 4 crystal wine glasses.Now they can enjoy their own wine at home and get the full flavor!

  Hi Ginger
My Mom loves Daytime tv but only allows herself to watch one show and she records that one,Y&R as she hasn't got the time during the day to sit and watch tv.Ron is so lucky to have such wonderful,loving and caring friends as you and your sweet Momma.
This morning was a very dark,dismal,dreary looking day with no sunshine at all.Our highs for the day will be 77 while the lows will be 69.Its 75 right now with very cloudy skies.Mom got up at 4:00am with my dad and got him off to work in the pitch darkness.He had to be in to set up for Osterville Village Days another of our summer events going on here.He sets up the barricades to block off the streets so the public can come and participate in all the events taking place from all the stores that are in the area and on that strip of road.They have things for the kids to do like face painting,making Make and Take crafts,while the adults have things they can participate in from each of the different stores there.They have a raffle for a new car on the Library lawn and a flea market type thing under the tent and paintings from local artists.Dad came home around 8:30am and Mom made him some breakfast and then she got us up,fed and cleaned out cages and swept our room and worked on vacuuming the house and then she got Dad's things ready and more coffee in his thermos and his lunch box filled with things to eat. Then he went back to work around 11:00am.Mom and us probably won't see him until tonight sometime when he has to collect all the barricades and bring them back to the shop.Mom will be spending most of today catching up with what she never got to do last night and yesterday.

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a bright sunny but cool morning the highs for the day were 76 the lows 63 its 66 at 9:00pm. Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and swept our room then she finished collecting the trash and the recyclables and loaded the car.Then she harnessed Dixie up and got him in the car seat.They took off to Nana's and Mom re loaded the trash in Nana's car and they sat for a while and had some tea before they left.They went to the dump,then to the bank,then they picked up skin sis and then they went to the Dollar Tree and Mom bought some things for dad's lunches,Skin sis and Nana each got something,then they went to the pet store to see about Trixie's cage and Mom brought them a printout of the cage model number and UPC and they got on the phone.They were supposed to call Nana back with an answer this afternoon if they had the door part for the cage and then how much it would cost.They never called back.While they were there Kelly showed Mom,Nana and skin sis three 4 week old baby GCC's. A pineapple,cinnamon and normal GCC.They were so sweet and tiny!Would Mom love to have all three!Then they went to Stop&Shop and each one of them bought a few things they needed that were on sale.Then as they were headed back home skin bro texted skin sis and wanted to take them to LongHorn restaurant for dinner so we waited for him to come meet us at Nana's house and we all got into Skin bro's car and headed out to Wareham to LongHorn.The traffic going over the Bridge and coming back was all backed up on both sides and they had to wait before they could get over it,Friday night is not a good night to leave here on a summer weekend.When they got to the restaurant they got their meals,both Mom and Nana got renegade steak with a sweet potato and asparagus,skin sis got macaroni and skin bro got a steak tip dinner.Then he ordered the chocolate stampede cake along with a lemon blueberry cake.Everyone was so full their pants were splitting.They left for home after that and Mom couldn't wait to get home to take her pants off!She collected Dixie and got him in the car seat and by the time they got home it was after 7:30pm and she had to get dinner for dad,wash the dishes that dad left her in the sink from his lunch,clean our cages and wash our dishes,put the groceries away and get dad's things packed for his lunch for work tomorrow.Its after 10:40pm and Mom is so tired and we apologize for a quick blog tonight,Mom is just too tired and has a bad headache.

  Hi Ginger
This morning is a cold bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 71,the lows of 57,its 66 right now!Mom got us all up,fed us and cleaned our cages and room.Then she was going to wash the floors as the humidity is gone and the floors are finally dry,but when she went into the freezer to take out another bean mix container for us there was none left,so she got busy and made up 15 more containers of that for us and then while she was out there she decided to bake some cranberry bread,brownies and cut up the red peppers she got yesterday and make a casserole out of them.Since is nearly cold outside she didn't mind using the oven to get a little heat in the house!
By late in the afternoon the sun came out and it was warm again.Mom vacuumed the house and our room,and got the trash collected for the dump tomorrow and worked on more clutter to take out to the dump.Then Mom got to take a break and brought us all outside to get some sunshine and a shower.We got to join Mom and dad for dinner out there and even got to have some bread.My dad has to go back to work tonight so Mom made sure she had enough sandwiches to last the night and something for him for the morning before he gets to come home.They had an early dinner and then dad showered after he fed the wild birds and gave them fresh water in the bird bath and sprayed all outside for ants.Then he went to bed to get some sleep before he has to go.Mom worked on getting the coffee maker ready and his cooler lunch box filled.Dixie and Candida get to sleep with Mom on the couch all night while dad is at work and Kallie gets to sleep in his sleeping box in the tv room with them.
Now its always good to have something that has an INSTRUCTION MANUAL with it!How are you supposed to figure out how to fix something when it goes wrong without directions?

  Hi Ginger
This morning was another warm day with the high's of 80 and the lows of 62.At 7:30pm its 73.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us.Dixie didn't even get to go with Mom and Nana was looking for him to join Mom and our cousins.Mom thought that Trixie would need the cage Dixie usually uses and left him home.But Trixie likes her own cage and Nana lets her stay on the play gym top as she goes inside when she wants to eat.It took Mom nearly an hour to get to Nana's and she crawled through all the traffic that was going no more than 10mph all the way up to the rotary!When Mom finally got to Nana's house,skin bro had tried to call Mom and he had good news for Mom.He had applied for a new job in Wellfleet and he got hired on the spot.He will get better pay driving newer trucks and doing more than just port a potties.Mom called skin sis and she met Mom and Nana at Nana's house and while Mom was waiting for her to get there,she brought down the big cage Nana had brought up to the cellar,gave Trixie a birdicure,and tried to put a new typewriter ribbon in Nana's typewriter but after an hour had to give up because she just got more black in on her hands and fingers and the instructions were confusing.Mom took the typewriter home for my dad to install.Then when skin sis came skin sis wanted to drive them around for their errands as she will be having to drive herself to work come Monday so they took off for Hyannis this time and went to Bed,Bath &Beyond and both Mom and Nana got a little steamer to steam our cages with and Mom got something for skin sis for her birthday.Then they went to Christmas Tree Shop and Nana got some bird food for the wild birds and a few other items,then from there they went to Hearth and Kettle and got something to eat,then from there they went back to Mashpee and to Stop&Shop so Nana could get some banana's and Mom got some vanilla coffee creamer for our dad and some red peppers.Then skin sis took them to Sweet Waves a froyo place and they had some fro yo then went to the organic grocery and Nana got the tea she was looking for.Then they came back to Nana's and both Mom and Skin sis helped unpack the car and by that time it was after 4:30pm and Mom and skin sis both left to go home.Nana was really hurting today with all the walking she did,but she just won't quit.Mom is hoping she puts her leg up and ice on her painful leg while they left.When Mom got home she unpacked her car and put everything away.Dad came out and he installed the typewriter ribbon in Nana's typewriter for her while it was still in the car.Mom put everything away,came to clean our room and check us out(Dad had already given us our snack)then Mom got dad some dinner of hot dogs and leftovers and they went out on the deck to have dinner,by the time they came in it was almost 8:00pm.Mom finished the dishes and Dad put the A/C on to keep the mugginess away.Now Mom is just starting to get to our visits now.There's nothing more annoying than
