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 morning to start with,the highs being 54 and the lows of 40,its 48 right now, and Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and vacuumed our room,then she was going to get ready to collect the laundry when skin bro IM'd her and wanted to come down and do some baking together,so Mom told him yes she would do some baking with him and while she was waiting for him to come over,she did a big birdie spa on all of us,Dixie and Kallie both got their beaks dremeled and then all five of us got our nails done.We were not very happy to have all that done to us in one day.And then we all got our weights taken on top of all that!
Skin bro came over shortly after that and he and Mom spent the whole afternoon in the kitchen baking MeatBall Casserole and Cranberry Sugar Cookies and Date nut Sugar Cookies.Then when the Meatball Casserole was done they both sat down and had some.Then they sampled some of the cookies they made.Mom cleaned up all the dishes and pots and baking dishes and packed up some of the Meatball Casserole for skin bro to take home with him along with a big box of the cookies that they made.Skin sis called Mom in the meantime and she was missing her Sundays with Mom baking.Mom on the other wing had thought that she would have the day off today. Before skin bro left to go run some errands,he paid Mom back the money she paid for his insurance on Friday.Then Mom finished cleaning up the kitchen and vacuumed our room one more time and the dining room and kitchen and tv rooms.Then dad came in from burning the sticks and twigs and branches and Mom made him dinner from what was left of what she and skin bro made.Mom packed the rest of it up and now she has enough for at least two to three more meals.She will put that in the freezer.Then Mom made dad his lunches for the week.Mom is hoping for a quiet night now and will probably do the laundry tomorrow.
What a pretty CAG Izzy is!He looks just like our cousin Bella.Is he just staying with you for a visit or is he going to be living with you always?Your sweet daddy doesn't need to get wet in the cold rain while he's still trying to recover from his cold!
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

It was a sunny morning here to start with and then the sun quickly disappeared,our highs for the day were 51 which we never saw and our lows will be 37,its 48 right now and freezing out there.We need some warm sunshine and summer heat here too!Mom got us up this morning fed and cleaned our cages then she took off with dad to run some errands,they came back about an hour later and then my dad fixed the electrical outlet that Mom always uses to plug the vacuum in as it was heating up the plug and it was not holding the plugs in tightly.Now he fixed it its so much better and the vacuum doesn't stop when the plug falls out.Mom vacuumed the whole downstairs and dad's den and our room and then took care of some more clutter.Then Mom and dad took off again but they were home in no time.Mom is making Canadian bacon and pineapple pizza for dinner tonight for dad and we'll get some crust which we love.
Its so good to hear that your sweet Parronts are getting better from their bad colds.Those things never seem to want to let go just like our winters here!Who is your special guest that's coming?You have us all intrigued!

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a coldish sunny morning with our highs for the day of 50 and our lows will be 35,its 46 right now.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and fed us and swept up our room and got all the trash loaded in the car,Dixie was put in his carrier and then he and Mom took off to Nana's.When they got there,Nana was still working with Amy her PT VNA doing exercises so Mom went and got her mail,and collected her bird room trash and got her other trash and loaded everything in Nana's car to take to the dump.Then as soon as Amy left,Nana got ready to go and they went to the dump and then to the bank to do some banking business for skin sis,then they went to Walgreen's so Nana could return something that wasn't going to work,then by the time they came home it was after 2:00pm.So Nana made a salad with tuna for lunch and then Mom cleaned Nana's ears out with the ear candles she made and then Nana did Mom's ears.Both Mom and Nana visited for a while and just when Mom was ready to leave skin bro called Mom and wanted her to get him a gift card in Stop&Shop so he could pay his car insurance,so Mom had to dig up $164.00 to pay for the card($6.00 activation fee) and put the rest of the amount on the card so he could pay his insurance.Mom took Dixie into the store with him because she didn't want to leave him in the car as it was really getting cold outside,Dixie was very good,snuggling inside Mom's coat,he had his harness and leash on,no one knew he was there.Mom had to really look hard to find the right gift card,it took her 15 minutes and she still had the wrong one,then while she was waiting in line,the person in back of her found the right card at the checkout.Mom finally got through the check out and went home,when she got out of the car and saw the amount she was so upset,they put the wrong amount down.So she was ready to head back after putting Dixie back in his cage when Dad saw how upset she was so he took her all the way back to Mashpee.Then while Mom was there she remembered she forgot to pick up Nana's outgoing mail so dad drove her back to Nana's so Mom could pick up her mail.Mom came home and got dad a late dinner and then had to deal with other stressful things with skin bro.Mom is so tired and hopes that tomorrow she will be able to have some time for herself. I'm sorry this is short but Mom is so tired and she's gonna fall asleep on me!

We are all so upset to hear that you are closing the Pretty Rose Flower Shop and the Proud Bird Pie Shop!They have been an integral part of our Community here and you have always done such wonderful work both in the Flower Shop and in the Pie Shop!We will miss you greytly,there will never be another that can live up to all that you've done for us here!Mom understands about other commitments and how life gets in the fast lane and there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day to get everything done lately!Oh how we will miss both businesses so much!
This morning started out nice and sunny not very bright but at least it was sunny and cheery,then by late morning the sun was squeezed out of the sky by lots of dark grey clouds and the wind picked up.The highs for the day were 50 and the lows are to be 35 its 46 right now,we nearly made it to 50 but the temperatures quickly started to drop.It looks like its going to rain any minute now.Mom's been home with us all day trying to catch up on all her house chores she never seems to get finished in a days time.She still has to collect the trash and get that ready to take tomorrow to the dump and she has to call the hardware store to see if they have something she needs before she tries going there and finding out they don't have what she wants after all.

This morning dawned a beautiful sunny day and our highs for the day were 62 with the lows being 41. Its 57 right now at 5:30pm. Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned and then she packed up Dixie in his carrier and took off to Nana's and as she was getting there the VNA who gives her showers was leaving.Mom went in and helped fix Nana's VCR as it wasn't working and hopefully what she did will get it right again.Then she moved something out of her bathtub for her and helped her find her glasses that had fallen on the floor by her recliner.Dixie was happily in the sun room sitting in the sunshine there.Then Mom fixed Nana's alarm clock in her bedroom for her as she couldn't get it to work either.Then they took off to skin sis's place to collect her bills and get them paid and when she got to skin sis's apartment skin sis wanted Mom to install her grab bar for her in her shower so Mom did that also,Nana was in the car waiting and skin sis wanted to see Nana so Mom had to turn the car around so they could see each other.Then from there Mom drove to Dollar Tree as Nana needed something there and from there they went to Shaws/Star grocery and they bought a few items that they needed.Then they went to Bobby Byrnes to have a nacho dish for lunch and went home from there.They tried to get to the Post Office for skin sis's bills but there was no place to park anywhere around there and Mom didn't feel like running all over the place just to get to the Post office to mail some letters so Mom will put them in our mail box tomorrow for the mail person to take.When Mom and Nana got back to her house they sat and had some coffee.Nana was hurting as she had used her cane the whole time they were out in the stores.Nana had given herself the shower today while the VNA stood close by in case she was needed.When Mom came home it was starting to get really windy out there and all the leaves were blowing all over the road.And the temperature dropped a bit and its starting to get cold.Mom came home and cleaned out our cages for the night and dad had already given us our snacks.Dixie got to finally get to ride home with Mom in the car seat and was he ever so eggcited!He loved every minute of the ride home,happy to be finally back on the carseat and not in the carrier!
Today is our fister Celine's 17th hatchday.Mom promises to bake her a special hatchday cake as she couldn't today!
We sure did miss you yesterday!Its so good to hear that your sweet Parronts are feeling better,we so hope that their colds will finally leave them alone so they can get back to normal again.That Do Over Day sounds really interesting and what a greyt deal that is!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses for sweet Ginger!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

It looks like your sweet daddy just loves the Mall just like my Mom does!But that sounds like a greyt idea,maybe a change of scenery might help them both with their colds!And the coughing especially at night when you're trying to get some sleep is really annoying!My dad had to get up early this morning to pick up skin bro and bring him to work,he dropped his car off for repairs and he left at 6:00am.,but he was home shortly afterwards.It was nice we had the holiday here so Mom didn't have to drive.The Boston Marathoners will be running in the rain it looks like!Our highs for the day will be 51 with the lows of 49,its 50 right now and pouring rain out there,dark and dreary.We are all praying that your sweet Parronts can kick this cold and start to feel better fast!

  Hi Ginger
Your poor sweet Momma Lori,we are sending lots of prayers for her to feel better fast.Those colds are so hard to get rid of and they always hang on like forever!And it doesn't help when both your parronts are feeling awful and both are coughing so much!Mom always gives my dad chicken soup,mainly the chicken broth and somehow that seems to help it clear up faster,there's something in the chicken broth that helps when you have a cold.Mom and dad finally buried Mario yesterday right alongside all our other frothers and fisters who passed on to Rainbow Bridge under the hydrangea bush.Mom was going to plant the yellow mini daffodil plant that skin sis got for him on his grave today but its way too cold out there and she figures the poor plant will freeze.
This morning was a bright sunny morning but quite cold out there! Our highs for the day will be 53 and the lows will be 39,its 50 right now and cold.Mom had planned to take us all out on the deck today to enjoy some sunshine but that's not going to happen now.Mom got us all up early and cleaned our cages and room and we got some fresh bean mix and then she did all the vacuuming on the whole downstairs.Mom was going to go outside today to plant the mini daffodil plants on Mario's grave but its too cold to put the plants out there now.Then Mom was getting ready to get more things done when skin bro IM' d her and wanted her to drive him to Buzzard's Bay to pick up his bike which is over the Bridge.Mom dropped everything she was doing and started to get her car ready to put the bike in and then to go and get dressed when my dad told her that he would drive skin bro to Buzzard's Bay to get the bike.So he finished taking all the stuff out of Mom's car,our car seat,Mom's lumbar support on her seat,and all Mom's crates in the trunk for groceries.Skin bro came and dad took off with skin bro and her car.Mom is happy about that as she just hates driving.Dad was raking leaves in the yard but they were all wet and yucky from the rain and snow and he just jumped at the chance to drive skin bro to get his bike.He was going to burn more brush but the wind was way too strong for that.Mom may still go out and clean out her flower garden later on as she really wants to see whats coming up and if her bleeding heart plants are going to return this year.
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

This morning was a dark,dismal,dreary and pouring rainy day,with the temperatures highs to be 55 with the lows being 46.It's 52 right now at 9:00pm.Mom got us all up early and cleaned our cages and fed us our warm bean mix.Then she packed Dixie up in his carrier along with the trash in the car and took off to Nana's where she put the trash in Nana's car along with Nana's trash,then Nana got in the car,Mom put Nana's walker in the car and they took off to the dump where Mom dumped out all the recyclables in the rain then she went to the trash area where she dumped the trash,then they went to the bank so Nana could cash a check,then to Falmouth to get all the things skin sis wanted Mom to do for her,then to Dollar Tree to get some things that they needed,then to Shaw's grocery store,where they got some sale items,then back to Nana's so Mom could pick up her car and get it filled with gas as she was riding on fumes,then before they left,Mom unloaded all the groceries from Nana's car,brought Nana's things in the house for her,put her own things in Mom's car,then called skin sis and asked her about her meds she was supposed to get.So before Mom got her gas she and Nana went to the CVS to pick up skin sis's meds,Nana gave Mom the $100.00 to pay for them,Mom will give Nana the money back next week,then Mom drove back to skin sis's apartment, climbed those 17 steps for the third and fourth time to bring the meds to her,rand down those stairs,and Mom drove to Walgreens and both Mom and Nana got some things there that were on sale,then Mom went back to Nana's where they sat and had some coffee and a little something to eat,by that time it was well after 6:30pm,so Mom collected Dixie and cleaned out his cage and went home,where dad unloaded the car while Mom put everything away and got us all fed and cleaned for the night,dad had already given us our snacks,then got a frozen dinner ready for dad's dinner,she was way too tired to start cooking after 7:30pm.Mom will try and get to all of our blogs hopefully without starting to nod off on us.Its been a really long day for her.
Your poor sweet daddy not being able to get any rest!Mom can't stand that either whenever she's got all the work done and wants to just sit down a little someone always calls her or IM's her or wants her to run errands for them like she had to do today for skin sis!It would've been easier on Mom if skin sis came back here to live but she insisted on going to her apartment so Mom now has to run between two different towns to help Nana out and now skin sis.I sure do hope your daddy gets to lie down for more than a few seconds!
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

This morning was a bright sunny morning and the highs for the day are 53 and the lows will be 42 its 55 right now! Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and then swept up our room and then she scrubbed both bathrooms upstairs and down and took all the area rugs and beat them all outside and hung them on the deck rails to get some air and blow around in the wind a bit.Then she walked around the yard and took pictures of our flowers that are beginning to bud and flower and so far the only flowers we have are the yellow primrose and the hyacinths are budding as are the lilies and some other plants.Mom is still on the lookout for her bleeding hearts and hopes that they'll come up this year.She lost her white ones last year and a pink one so all she's got left are two pink bleeding hearts if they are still there somewhere.She's hoping to get out in the flower garden on Sunday and rake all the leaves away so she can really see what's still there.The tiger lilies are coming up along the fence and some of the daffodil leaves are up also.Mom also got a picture of our only crocus that didn't get smashed by the heavy mountains of snow that were laying on top of them. Then she took the filter out of the heat box and took that outside and cleaned that off and put it back in.After Mom gets done with her chores she will be spending the rest of the day with us.She still has to collect the trash to go to the dump tomorrow along with Nana's trash and then she will be running into Falmouth to get skin sis's errands done for her and to bring her the meds she's got waiting at the pharmacy.Its going to be another long day for Mom tomorrow so she's got to get as much as she can get done today.
That was really awesome that the man at the medical supply shop installed the two new axel bolts and two lock nuts and it only cost your dad $3.00!We are so praying that both your sweet Parronts can lose their colds,how awful to have such nice weather coming and they aren't feeling well.Please give them both our love and warm hugs from Mom and me!You're so right that's no fun at all!

This morning was a nice bright sun shiny morning and the highs for the day were 60 degrees with the lows being 38 and right now at 7:00pm its 57 and still a bit sunny! Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and swept up our room and then she got Dixie ready to go in his carrier and off she went to Nana's.By the time she got there Nana had already had the OT come and evaluate her and then Nana was ready for Mom to take her to run some errands.They only had an hour to spare before the VNA that gives her a shower came so they only went up to the post office so Nana could mail some letters,Mom ran in with them while she waited in the car,then they went over to go to Marshall's but they were running out of time as it took time to circle around for a parking spot.So they went back to Nana's to wait for her VNA to come to give her a shower.The VNA told Mom that Nana was really doing so good,she was fast and was doing the whole shower practically on her own.Then as soon as she left 15 minutes later the PT VNA came to work out with Nana and she came and put the belt around Nana having her walk around the house first with her cane and then they went outside,first through the garage door and the PT had Nana open the garage door on her own then Nana got down the two steps there and Mom came with them and brought Dixie out with her and they walked all over the front yard,then the back yard.When they came inside the PT took Nana in her room and did more stretching exercises on her bed.By the time the PT left it was well after 3:00pm and both Mom and Nana hadn't eaten any lunch.So Mom took Nana to Subway and they got a sub there and then went to Stop&Shop to get fruit for my cousins and pick up some other sale items and mark down fruits and veggies.Then they went to Marshall's to look for some things and Nana got some teas and some artichoke hearts for a salad.By the time Mom and Nana got back to Nana's house it was after 5:00pm and they both had some of Nana's new tea and a snack and then Mom cleaned up Dixie's cage,trimmed Nana's toenails on her bad foot,watered all her plants which were dry and cleaned out her heat box which was all dusty(the filter).Then she packed Dixie in the car and went home and got dad his dinner,and put all the groceries away and cleaned our cages,dad had already given us our snack and filled our humidifier bottle for us.Skin sis had wanted Mom to come and pick up her meds at the CVS in Falmouth but Mom just couldn't get there today there was just too much going on with Nana's VNA appointments that took up the whole day.We will get Mom home all day tomorrow and we hope that its going to be another nice day out there so we can go out and enjoy the sunshine!
What a nice man of that medical supply store to install both wheel bolts and lock nuts on Momma Lori's chair at no charge!You don't find people like that around these days!Please give your sweet Parronts a big wing hug from Mom and all of us here to help them feel better!

I kinda thought so!Those cookies are usually so huge!I'll bet your sweet Momma really loved it too!Your daddy was awesome to share it with her too!Mom and I think your daddy is so amazing that he can fix all these complicated things and make them like new again for your sweet Momma.He's so handy to have around!I know what you mean I'll be left all alone with my fiblings tomorrow when my Mom goes out to spend the day helping Nana.
Today was a dark dreary,dismal rain off and on day here our temperatures were 59 for the high and 43 for our lows and right now its 63.Not too bad out there but we sure could use some sunshine right now!Mom busied herself with vacuuming the whole downstairs and cleaning up more clutter,she was supposed to start cleaning out the closet in the tv room but that never happened,Oh well,maybe on Thursday!She'll be busy running errands for both my Nana and skin sis tomorrow,Mom sure doesn't look forward to climbing up all those stairs at skin sis's apartment though,I guess she could use some exercise she doesn't get enough here!
Those pictures are wonderful and Mom and I so enjoyed each and everyone of them.Please thank your wonderful daddy for giving us such a fabulous tour,we sure did appreciate it more than you can imagine!

Your sweet daddy is simply amazing working on your awesome Mom's wheelchair like that and making it so much better for her to use and easier to move around in it!Those brakes sound like they would be difficult to do!I'll bet your sweet Mom is so happy that your dad can fix everything on her chair for her!
Mom and I just can't thank you enough for all those pics you left in your gallery and also for the explanation of what they are!What a beautiful tour you gave us,we loved every pic and Mom is going to check out that website your awesome daddy gave her.What a beautiful sunset,what beautiful architecture on all the hotels and houses too!The Wrigley Mansion really looks awesome as does the Casino.Thank you so much for posting the pics and sharing them with us,we sure do appreciate them more than you know!
Oh how funny your daddy chose that precise time to use the men's room to wash his hands!Now it was really good that they just didn't leave and not give him his special birthday dessert!That giant fresh baked chocolate chip cookie with ice cream on top sure sounds really good,did your awesome daddy eat the whole thing?
Our highs for the day will be 57 and the lows will be 47 but during the day we had temperatures of 63,it wasn't as nice as yesterday was but at least the sun was out,it was a bit on the cool side.
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 morning our highs will be 56 and our lows will be 40.It's 54 right now and Mom spent the morning cleaning our cages and getting us all fed.Then she stripped the bed and dad collected the laundry from upstairs and brought it down cellar for my Mom to start the wash.She did the first load of laundry and got the second in the washer,went out to hang the sheets on the line and forgot to turn the dryer on.She went downstairs an hour later thinking she will be folding those clothes and they weren't even dry,she put the dryer on and came back upstairs to check on the turkey soup she is making and then came back in our room to sweep up the floor that Kallie made a mess of with all the chewed boxes he's been having fun with.My dad is outside burning sticks and branches that fell from the trees in the storms we had all winter,Mom is hoping that the sheets and towels won't smell like smoke now.Mom went out to check the sheets and they dried nicely and they didn't smell like smoke either.
How wonderful that your daddy fixed your sweet Mom's wheelchair for her and got it looking like new and riding better.Oh you certainly can't beat a show and a free dinner and especially a good steak dinner!
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 beautiful sunny morning with our highs being 58 and our lows of 37 we are now at 59. Both my parents got up early this morning as they had to take the bottles to the redemption center for Nana so Mom fed us and cleaned our cages and they left and got the bottles taken back then they went to Nana's house and moved her dining table back out to the sun room and took the table that was out there and put it in the kitchen.Mom removed all the plants and vacuumed the sun room before my dad helped her move the table out there,then she vacuumed the kitchen and living room and part of the hall for Nana,while my dad swept out the garage and put in a new light bulb for her in the garage.As they were leaving the VNA's came one to give Nana a bath and one to observe to see how Nana was doing.Mom and dad then went into Hyannis to Trader Joe's to get my cousins some bean mix and then my dad took his car through the car wash and then they came home for a little while before they have to go out one more time,Mom promises me that she will be back in time for the Milonga tonight.Your daddy is so awesome to be able to fix your sweet Momma's chair like that for her!I'll bet he did a better job than the people who actually work on those chairs!I'm with you that must be so gross to be born without a shell!EEEEEEEWWWWWWWW!!!And my parronts saw something that was even more EEEEEWWWW!Some guy was riding his bicycle and both my parronts had to do a double take,his whole butt was hanging out on the seat,where did his pants go?

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a dark,dismal,dreary rainy day here the highs being 51 and the lows of 45 and its 52 now and Mom got us up,fed us and then cleaned our room,and then she collected the trash and got Dixie's broken Bird Warmer all packaged and wrapped up ready to go to the Post Office.Then she got Dixie ready in his carrier and left to go to Nana's.When she got there she got all of Nana's trash loaded in Nana's car and our trash and then she helped Nana get in her car,folded up her walker and got that in the car after she got Dixie settled in his cage there and they both took off to the dump,then to the bank,then to Walgreen's where Mom and Nana both got some good deals on things they needed like eggs for $0.99,Mom got three dozen and Nana got two dozen.Nana did really well walking with her walker in the stores.Then they went to Roche Bros.grocery store and they got more buys there,heads of lettuce for $0.99,provolone cheese on sale,strawberries,turkey legs and turkey wings to make soup with,chicken sausages and chicken breasts to make dinner with.By the time they were waiting to go through the checkout there Nana was getting pretty tired and they went home from there and Nana made them some left over ravioli's while Mom unloaded the car,first helping Nana get into the house.By the time they had lunch it was nearly 3:30pm and it was getting worse outside,drizzly rain and heavy fog.As soon as they finished lunch,Mom collected all of Nana's bottles for the redemption center so she and dad can take them there tomorrow and put them in her car.Then she collected Dixie and Nana sent them both home before the weather got any worse for driving.When Mom got home she put everything away and then cleaned all our cages out for the night,dad had given the rest of us our snacks and put the light on for us,and Mom got dad his dinner a Boston Market frozen dinner,which he loved and now she's got time to let us visit every birdie!Its been another long day!
How awful for the boat crew to wreck your sweet Momma's wheel chair like that.I should say both your sweet Parronts needed some rest up time from that full day they had yesterday!We are always so happy to wish your awesome daddy a happy hatch day!
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
First off we want to wish your sweet Daddy a very Happy Birthday and it was good to hear he had a wonderful time on Catalina Island!Mom just loves that song(26 miles)!Wow you have to make an appointment to get your licenses renewed there?At our RMV you come in and are given a number and are told to wait,they give you the approximate wait time.Last summer Mom was in the RMV for nearly three hours waiting to get her license renewed.That sounds like a wonderful day on the Island walking around and picking up lots of free stuff and I'll bet it was so enjoyable to be walking outside on such a nice day,I'll bet your sweet Momma just loved being out there also!It must've been a happy kind of tired and aches and pains from having such a memorable day together on such a pretty Island!
This morning was a grey dark and cold morning with our highs for the day at 41 and our lows at 38,right now its 39 and it hasn't changed all day.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and fed us and then last night she found Dixie's Bird Warmer had gone cold and he really loves to snuggle up with his face on it and it was ice cold,Mom had tried everything to get it to work but it just was to no avail.So she called Drs Fosters and Smith and they will send her out another one when she sends the broken one back,she has to pay for the new one up front and will get her money reimbursed when they receive the old one back.She will just have to pay the shipping on the old one and they will waive the shipping charges on the new one,she only has to pay tax on it now.Celine and Kallie have been driving Mom crazy with their non stop calling out to each other.Kallie wouldn't leave Celine's cage and kept hanging on it while Celine would hang on the bars and poop all over the cage after Mom had just cleaned it,so Mom took both Peepers and Celine's cage out to the dining room and still Kallie and Celine yelled back and forth to each other.Celine just wouldn't stop.So Mom took Celine out and put her in Dixie's acrylic cage in the TV room so she could shut our bird room door and then the TV room door so they couldn't hear each other screaming back and forth.Kallie keeps trying to escape the Bird Room whenever Mom opens the door,Mom even put Kallie back in his cage and he tore the whole cage up and screamed for Celine even louder!This is going to be a very long couple of months with my frother and fister screaming for one another!Mom was busy with collecting trash to take tomorrow to the dump and doing more chores around the house that needed doing.
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
We woke up to a sunny day here with the highs for the day being 50 and the lows of 41.Its 48 right now and I don't think we'll be looking at 50 anytime soon.Starting tomorrow its going to rain the whole rest of the week here!Gimme a break!We get the sunshine for one day and the rest of the week will be rain!Well,I guess I can't complain,at least its not snow and most of our snow is melting now with little patches of smaller mountains here and there all around the front and back of the yard.
Mom got us up and cleaned our cages and got the room ready to bring Mario's cage back in as my frother and fister are moving back in with us while my skin sis has her surgery on Wednesday.Mom will have a short break today staying home and trying to catch up on our house chores,before skin sis moves back in with her for the next three months,then she will be running back and forth between Nana and here to take care of skin sis's needs and running her errands along with her own and Nana's.But for now its a quiet day here and something that we enjoy as we haven't had one of those in a very long time with Mom staying home with us all day long.Dad came by and took the cable bill and the Census as Mom has no idea when she'll be up Hyannis or Falmouth way again to pay the bills there.Skin bro has gone back to work full time so Mom is on her own from now on.
I will miss you until you come back and please wish Papa John a wonderful happy Birthday for Wednesday for us all here!
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
Mom was busy this morning running around and getting all the things she was supposed to bring over to Nana's and then she packed Dixie up and Mom and Dad left for Nana's.When they got there Mom started making the sauce and then got the ravioli's and got the pan ready for them,then she set the table while Nana made the salad and then around three o'clock dinner was ready and Mom served up the sausages and meatballs and the ravioli's,then afterwards everyone was so full they all went into the tv room to relax for a while while Mom cleaned up the kitchen and did the dishes before Mom made coffee and served that with dessert,which was rum cake,tropical dump cake,seven layer cookie bars,Nana's Queen's biscuits that she made,and pumpkin holiday cake.Then they went back to relax a little more before Mom's sister and her family came over,that's when Mom and dad decided to split and so did skin sis and skin bro.It was a nice time and I think everyone ate way too much!We all wish you a greyt Easter!
HAPPY EASTER to you and yours sweet flock and family!
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 crazy morning as far the the weather is concerned.Earlier it was pouring rain and now the sun is out nicely and its 50 degrees out there!Our highs for the day will be 53 and the lows will be 31.Mom is taking the day to clean up the house and catch up as best she can and try to bake more things to bring over to Nana's for Easter dinner.We will have Mom with us most of the day before they will be leaving at 5:30pm to go to Easter Vigil services at Church.It starts at 7:00 but they have to be there in order to get a seat and a parking place as all the twice a years come on that day.Sorry this is such a short blog today but Mom has so much to do today before she has to get ready to go out tonight.She has to think of something to make for dinner before she and dad leave tonight and get our snacks and dinner all set early for us also!
If I don't get to wish you all a very Happy and Blessed Easter tomorrow, I'm wishing you all now to have a special and wonderful Easter and give my love to all your flock and families from Mom and all of us here.
Wishing you a greyt Easter Saturday 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
Oh those windows sure are a pain in the tail feathers to clean and ours sure do need a good cleaning.Mom had got dad to clean most of the ones upstairs several months back but its the downstairs ones that really need cleaning that haven't been touched for years,especially in the tv room.Mom had all new windows put in the downstairs except the pantry and the mud room and the spare room off the mud room and all the windows that she had put in are those that open out so you don't have to go outside or raise the screens up to get to them.But they are way to heavy for Mom to pull them down,Nana did hers once in the bathroom and nearly went flying out the door.Good for your sweet Parronts for taking that company to court and we hope that they win their case.Please keep us updated on how it all turns out for them,we wish them a lot of luck!This morning was a dark dismal and dreary day here with it pouring rain by early afternoon, our highs for the day being 50 and our lows will be 45,its 46 right now and it seems the mercury is stuck on that number all day!We got to keep our Mom home for a change all day long and she worked on more things to clean on the house and then she baked some seven layer cookie bars.The house really smells good right now and I just know my dad will come out and demolish them if Mom doesn't wrap them up and put them away before he gets home from work.He only got two cookie bars when Mom and skin sis made them last week all the others are gone,skin sis and skin bro took some home with them.Mom is hoping to take some over to Nana's for Easter if she doesn't get a chance to bake anymore before Sunday.Its an unusual boring day here for us and we don't mind it as we haven't had very many of those days lately.Mom is happy to be home and having a chance to get more done in the house.There's just so much to be done and not enough time to get it all done in!
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
