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".

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a bright sunny morning and the highs for the day would be 50 and the lows will be 32.Right now its 41.Skin bro came for Mom around 7:30 this morning and she woke us up and cleaned our cages and quickly swept our room and fed us our warm bean mix and then packed me,( Dixie) up and they took off to Nana's house.When they got there she put me,(Dixie)into the cage he has there and then Nana got some waffles and an orange for breakfast for the four of them as skin sis met us there,and they had some tea.Then Mom and Nana began to make the Easter bread for Sunday and after they got the dough mixed up,Nana had skin sis put it out in her solar room as it was very warm out there for the dough to rise.Then Mom,skin sis,skin bro all took off to do some shopping for Nana at Market Basket.Nana was waiting for her PT VNA to come.Market Basket was crowded as usual when they got there but they quickly got most of all the items that Nana had wanted and Mom even picked up a rum cake for Easter dessert.Mom picked up ten boxes of margarine for baking which were on sale for 0.88 cents,a nice large garden tomato,gatorade for dad for the summer for 0.25 cents among some other items which were on sale.Then they went back to Nana's and the dough had risen really well and Nana had shaped the Easter Bread into braids and Mom put it in the oven for her.Then they had lunch of salad with the fresh tomato that Mom bought,salsa and some chips and were getting ready to sit down to eat when another OT came in.She did her thing with Nana making sure that Nana didn't need her for a longer period of time.She will come into next week sometime but after that she finds no reason to be coming as Nana is really doing well. By the time they got done with lunch it was close to 4:00pm and they planned on making the ravioli's on Friday.Mom then got the vacuum after cleaning up the kitchen and then vacuumed the whole downstairs for Nana.Our cousin Bella hated that vacuum and growled and screamed the whole time Mom was in the Bird Room.By the time Mom was done vacuuming it was five and time to go home to make dinner for my dad and to get us all cleaned and fed for the night.Skin bro took Mom home and skin sis left to go to her place.Mom made dinner for my dad,cleaned our cages and fed us a small dinner(Dad had given us our snacks) and now Mom is done doing the dishes and we are having our turn to visit all our friends!Your poor sweet daddy is always busy working hard on the house and the yard,and that yard work is so hard and backbreaking too!I'll bet all the yard he's done looks so beautiful!
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 another dark dismal day with our temperatures highs being 42 and the lows being 33.Right now its 37 and fairly cold.Skin bro came and picked Mom up at around 8:00am this morning.So Mom really had no time to do much of anything except to clean all our cages quickly and feed us all.Then she collected the trash and recyclables and skin bro loaded them in his car while she got Dixie in his carrier and wrapped him with a blanket.When they got to Nana's Mom got Dixie settled in his cage there and set his food bowl down for him and he immediately started eating then skin bro and Mom collected Nana's trash and recyclables and they loaded them in Nana's car and they went to the dump,when they came back the VNA came to work out with Nana.The VNA had Nana walking over and over around her house with a cane.They are trying to get her out of the walker.But she is not to use the cane when the VNA is not there and she is not to go outside yet as the ground is too uneven and Nana promises she isn't going to try as she doesn't want land back in the hospital or rehab again!Mom and Nana were supposed to try and make at least one loaf of Easter Bread for Easter but that never happened so if Mom makes it over to Nana's earlier tomorrow they can start it then,Nana will mix all the ingredients and Mom will do the kneading.Then skin bro is going to take Mom grocery shopping at Market Basket to pick up some things for Easter dinner.They both have no idea what they will have for Easter dinner this year as Nana isn't feeling well with her broken hip,Nana doesn't know if they can make ravioli's.Mom said she wouldn't mind trying to make them as she's been helping make them for a while now.After they left Nana's skin bro drove Mom into Falmouth and he bought Mom and himself a medium blizzard at DQ and then he took Mom to the Dollar Tree to get our dad some funnels that he needed.Then he took Mom home and it started to rain again and got dark as night.When Mom got home she made dinner for my dad,cleaned all our cages and dad had already given us our snack and put our light on for us and filled our humidifier.We all still think that was so underhanded and thinking that your sweet parronts would never find out about what they did to them,how awful to think that you are getting somewhere with your home and bills and find out that things are not really that way at all!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses sweet Ginger,Loving you always and forever,Dixie

What a shame to have all that dumped on your sweet Mom without ever telling her that there were things that needed to be fixed that were important!Didn't they know that your sweet daddy and Mom would have to pay the price to get it all fixed up?How sad,with that amount you could almost but another house!
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs being 36 and the lows of 30.Its 28 right now.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages and fed us and then skin sis came over around 9:30 this morning with Peepers and Celine.Mom got them set up in a spare cage and then Mom,Dad and skin sis took off for IHOP as my dad had been wanting to try their criss cross croissants so they went and had them,then dad took them through the car wash to see all the pretty colors of the soap as it went on the windows of the car,looking like a rainbow.When they came home,Mom did birdie cures on every birdie,nails,beaks and flights and then skin sis wanted to bake something with Mom as this would be her last time to do so as she's going in for surgery next week.So they made seven layer cookies,cherry dump pie,and mock pumpkin pie.Mom gave skin sis half of what they baked to take home with her and skin sis left around 5:30pm.Mom cleaned up the kitchen and all the baking dishes and mixing bowls and utensils.
They both attended Mario's Memorial and it was just so beautiful,tears were coursing down both Mom and skin sis's faces,it was such a beautiful ceremony and all of us including Mom and skin sis are so thankful to all those involved with making it such a wonderful and special time.We all just can't thank you enough for all the outpouring of love and caring you have given us here,you have put the sun back in the sky for us and in our hearts.

Oh how awful to have all that plumbing to be found out as not being what it was supposed to be.And to have the 10% that was copper to be installed incorrectly and to be the cause of the pipes to leak and then break altogether,that is one big nightmare!Oh how horrible that is and we of all fids and families know just how expensive plumbing problems can be!I can't believe there wasn't a home inspection done before the house passed over to your sweet Parronts to make sure everything was on the up and up.Even when my parronts bought our house from Mom's parronts we had to have a home inspection done before they could pass papers on it.Our hearts are with your poor daddy and we know just what he must be going through right now.How could anyone have done that to their own family?
This morning was another dark,dreary,dismal pouring rainy day here and then by late morning it all turned to snow,with big heavy flakes coming down,our highs for the day will be 34 and our lows will be 28. Its 34 right now with those big flakes of snow still coming down.Its not sticking to much just the lawns and not the deck or the walkway or the street which is good.Mom was busy today cleaning our cages and room,then she vacuumed the whole downstairs of the house and kept trying to get Dixie to eat.Ever since Mario flew to Rainbow Bridge he stopped eating.Mom has the day off today so she will be spending more time with us between playing catch up with the house chores. Its going to be an uneventful day here and that's just what we need right now,for Mom to stay home with us and not have to leave.We haven't had one of these days in quite some time now!

  Hi Ginger
This morning was another dark dull grey dismal rainy day here and the highs for the day will be 41 while the lows will be 34,right now its 39 degrees and we have more snow coming our way for tomorrow.Mom got up and cleaned our cages and room and then she fed us our warm bean mix,Dixie refused to eat as usual and Mom tried putting animal crackers in his dish but he still wouldn't eat.Then she got some things together,along with the trash and recyclables and dad drove her and Dixie to Nana's sometime around 10:00am.The PT nurse had just left when they got there.Dad took the trash from his car and put it in Nana's car and then he left to go home and Mom set me up inside in the cage Nana has for me. When Mom got there both skin bro and Nana were eating breakfast and I(Dixie)was invited to join them on the table and did I have a greyt time.I ate from Nana's dish and had some eggs and I even grabbed some of her toast,she even put some in my dish that Mom had brought for me.Mom left me with Nana while skin bro and she went to the dump,then to the bank and to Roche Bros grocery to pick up some things that were on sale and on the three day sale page.Mom and skin bro got the items that Nana wanted and then they came home and Nana was getting lunch ready of salad and sharp cheddar cheese,warm rolls and rice pudding and tuna.Mom did a quick vacuuming of Nana's rooms especially her bedroom where our cousin Trixie II sleeps she's got more feathers everywhere there and Mom helped Nana put some of the laundry she did away.Skin bro and Mom relaxed with Nana in the tv room for a while then he brought Mom home so she could make dad his dinner and get us all our late day snack and clean our cages out for the night.
Oh does my Mom know what that's like cleaning up our room and cages,you just can't get away with a quick wipe and swipe!Mom did the other day when she took Mario's cage out and cleaned that.She hasn't been home in the last month to do any real cleaning and by the time she gets home its so late and she's way too tired to do anymore cleaning,she helps Nana at her house with cleaning and vacuuming and cooking and washing dishes and some laundry,shopping and bill paying etc so she has no energy left for our house when she gets home,she's a bit too lazy I guess to do both places at once.Oh those plumbers sure are no fun.And I know what being in lockdown means,we've been in lockdown now for over a month now and its no fun not being able to have a day to spend with Mom anymore,she's gone 7 days a week from early in the morning to well after dinnertime at night.Mom is hoping that Nana will be able to handle using a cane so she might be a little more independent and won't need Mom and skin bro to stay with her so often.

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a dark,gray,dismal dreary rainy day with the temperature highs of 53 and the lows of 38. Mom got the three of us all fed and cleaned,swept our room and then she got my dad some breakfast and then after a few more quick pick ups around the house my dad took her to Nana's where she met skin bro and Mom helped Nana get her shoes and socks on,and skin bro got her down the two steps out into the garage and into her car.Mom folded up the walker and skin bro put it in his trunk and they went to the surgeons office.When they got there all the employees were outside and the fire alarm was going off,then the fire engines came and they went into the building so Mom,Nana and skin bro waited out in the parking lot for awhile,Nana was supposed to be there at 12:45pm but by the time the fire engines left it was after one.Skin bro drove up to the front of the building and he helped get Nana out of the car and Mom got her walker and they went into the building while skin bro parked the car.They had to wait another 20 minutes or more until someone came back into the office and then the receptionist gave Mom five pages of info that needed to be filled out,she helped Nana fill them out and then she had to go down and get another x-ray taken then after that she got seen by the surgeon.Nana is healing nicely and she has another appointment to see him on May 6th for a 6 week check up.Then from there they went to DQ which finally opened up in Falmouth and they all had a Blizzard,skin bro had a grasshopper mousse,both Mom and Nana had one with all fruit in it.Nana was hankering for some Honey Dew donuts and skin bro drove to Cotuit to the shop there and they made some Barvarian cream donuts up fresh for Mom as those were Nana's favorite so they got a dozen donuts there while Nana waited in the car,then they went to Stop&Shop to get some bananas and salad mix.It was pouring rain hard while they were out and Mom was so cold from getting wet in the rain.They went back to Nana's and skin bro got Nana safely back into the house and Mom made coffee for everyone and they had a donut and coffee,shortly after that skin bro took Mom home as it was well after 5:30pm and Mom still had to go home and make dinner for my dad.When Mom got home everyone fairly much ate but Dixie didn't touch any of his food at all,he didn't even eat the animal cracker that dad gave us all for a snack.Mom tried everything to get him to eat and he refused.Nana told Mom to take Dixie with her tomorrow when she comes there to help with the trash,Dixie always eats there and he may be missing his time with Nana and the car ride.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your sweet parronts friend who's at the new rehab.Mom and Nana both know how much he must want to be home again in his own place so he can get well faster.The poor guy having to spend another month in rehab,its so wonderful that your amazing Parronts are going to visit him all the time,I'll bet he's so happy to see them!How awesome

This morning was another bright sunny morning with the high's of 43 and the lows of 35,its 37 right now.Mom got us up early and fed us and then did a major clean up of our room.She cried the whole time having to look at Mario's empty cage and all his things in it. I think she washed his cage more with her tears than with the soap and water and Poop Off she was working with.After she scrubbed every inch of his cage she took it out of our room because Kallie wouldn't stop trying to sit on it.Mom moved it out to the spare room in the front of the house and shut the door so she wouldn't have to be reminded of it and not ever going to see Mario again.Candida kept making these loud mournful sounds which only made Mom cry more.And on the whole we were all very quiet today,we didn't even call out for our late day snack.Mom left shortly after she vacuumed and washed our bird room floor.Dad took her to Nana's so she could help her and dad fixed Nana's mailbox which had completely fallen over.While dad went to the hardware store to get some lag bolts to fix the mailbox with,Nana had Mom call in some nachos for their lunch.Skin sis and skin bro came down and so did the VNA to give Nana a shower the first one since she came home.The VNA thought that skin bro did a wonderful job of installing the hand held shower and it really felt good to Nana to have a nice hot shower.After the VNA left Mom and skin sis went down to Bobby Byrnes to pick up the nachos and all five of them sat and ate together.Mom cleaned up the kitchen and then they left shortly afterwards so Nana could get some rest.Nana will be seeing the surgeon tomorrow so Mom will be back to bring her there with skin bro.When Mom and dad came home,the house was very quiet,we all usually yell out to her when she walks through the door,she panicked when she called out to us and we didn't answer her back.So she ran into our room fast.We just have been in a very quiet mood lately,missing our frother,Mario and wondering just why he's not in his cage beside us anymore.
Oh that's the worst driving with all the traffic and the big trucks and construction too,no way!Why is it that it always seems like forever to get someplace and yet it only takes a shorter time to get back home!

  Hi Ginger
It was another bright sunny but cold morning,with the highs of 34 and the lows of 25.Both my Parronts got up early at 7:00am and got dressed and Mom was going to leave us til she got back from helping dad drop off her car,but as they were leaving skin bro was already in the driveway so my dad told Mom to stay home while he and skin bro dropped Mom's car off.Mom went back into the house and cleaned our cages and fed us but our frother Mario wasn't really feeling good so Mom just picked him up and gave him a kiss on his little tiel beak and told him she'd be back to give him some snuggles when she got home,but that never happened.By the time Mom came home Dad met us in the garage with a bag and Mario was in it.Dad had checked on us earlier and we were fine and then in the late afternoon he went to give us our snacks and found Mario on the bottom of his cage.Mom is so upset right now.She doesn't even feel like doing anything else.She feels that maybe she should've done more for Mario,taken him with her or spent a little more time with him.
When skin bro came back with my dad from dropping Mom's car off at the repair shop,Mom got right in his car and they went to Nana's.They all had some breakfast there and some tea with Nana and then Mom vacuumed Nana's whole house,her bird room,bedroom,hall and living room and kitchen.Then the PT VNA came and put Nana through another grueling workout with her legs.She brought resistance bands with her and Nana did both strengths and told the PT person that they were easy to do so she gave Nana the harder of the two bands to work out with.After she left,Nana whispered how bad her legs ache right now!Then skin bro and Mom took off to find Nana a hand held shower head so she can start having showers instead of the sponge bath thing.So skin bro drove them to WalMart and they found one there and they ran one errand for Nana and then skin bro went to West Falmouth Market and bought all three of them a Gobbler sub,(turkey,stuffing,cranberry sauce)and they went back to Nana's and ate together.Then skin bro installed the new shower for Nana and Mom helped him and he did really greyt.The one mistake they made was forgetting to put the washers inside so when skin bro turned the water on to test it it leaked from the top where the connections were so he had to take everything apart and do it all again but they finally got it right.Now when the VNA that comes to give Nana a bath tomorrow,Nana will be able to have a shower and use her shower seat.My dad worked on the TV room ceiling all morning after he got the car back,he had to walk up to get the car and it only took him 25 minutes so now Mom has a new battery,new tires and an alignment so she's good to go.The TV room ceiling looks so much better without having to look at all those big brown stains from the snow and rain.Mom is feeling a little bit down and still crying over losing Mario so please forgive us for not hanging around too long tonight.Mom has to deal with cle

  t Parronts wrote that 4 page complaint letter only to find it was nothing but a sales pitch,Mom and I sure don't blame them for being so angry and upset,they took time from their day to state some very important factors and never even got a chance to air them!Why didn't these people say so in the beginning what the deal was all about!They should've gotten a good free meal and I do hope it was a good one too!Oh do we know what its like for you being kept in lock down every day.We were so surprised that we got to have Mom home with us all day again today but that won't be the case tomorrow,she's going to go back to Nana's and help her out again,Nana was having too many VNA's coming all at once today and there wouldn't be much room for parking with the snow hogging the whole driveway and those that come parking right smack dab in the middle instead of moving it over so another vehicle can pull in!
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

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a nice bright sunny morning but freezing cold out with our temperatures highs to be 30 and our lows to be 22 and right now its 30 out there and the sun isn't doing much to warm things up at all.Nothing is even melting and the snow looks like it'll be here until the end of summer!Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and fed us our warm bean mix and then she vacuumed our room and the rest of the house and went spider web hunting with the vacuum,you don't get to stay home and vacuum everyday and they sure do know how to take over the place!Mom called Nana early and she was expecting the VNA around 9:00-10:00am and she was an hour and a half late and never called Nana to tell her she was held up,Nana had no idea whether she was coming or not.She finally came and took blood and checked Nana's BP and then she upped the dosage of Nana's cumaden. Nana's BP was a little high and we think it was because she had to wait not knowing whether the VNA was coming or not.Then the second VNA was supposed to come around 12:00-12:30 for the PT part of it and Nana is hoping they go easy on her today as she's still sore from the other day.Nana told Mom to stay home today because she was doing all right and skin bro would be back soon,he went into Hyannis to get his car new tires and he was on his way after that,Nana wanted Mom to take at least another day to try and catch up with our house and our cages etc.My dad had gone into Hyannis also to get new tires for Mom's car and he waited for the truck to come in and he was waiting out in the cold car for an hour and a half and decided to go get something for lunch so he did came back to wait some more then decided to leave and just when he walked in the door they told him the tires were ready,so he had to drive all the way back there again.Now Mom is waiting for my dad to come home and while she's waiting she's trying to finish up some more work on the house,putting stuff away and cleaning off the clutter on the counter tops that got put there in her rush of coming and going.Mom watered all plants and tried to clean up some of our room where there were things that got put so she wouldn't have to deal with them at the moment.We are all so happy to be home with Mom,and Kallie is happy he's not cage bound but is out for the whole day again.Mom is going to try and tackle the dusting while the sun is still out so she can get it all!
Mario is doing good lately,he seems to want to eat much later in the day now but he does eat his whole meal that Mom makes for him.He takes a lot more naps but he sure is vocal if he wants something and Mom always runs into our room to see just what he's really yelling for!I'm waiting for Mom to run through my tricks with me again I just love doing them and getting the peanut butter cheerio that I get for an award too!Lately Mom hasn't had much time to spend with us doing anything much but snuggling with us at night when everything is finally done.
How awful that your swee

  Flitzer's Monday Musings
Sunday afternoon Dad had a friend over for BluRay Day. They watched Stanley kubrick's long, slow and magnificent film "BARRY LYNDON".
I got bored and played with a spoon and ate seeds. HA.

At "Intermission" [whatever that is] they had Pizza and Wings.

Cold in Buffalo with some unexpected snow showers Sunday morning. Hopefully Spring will struggle it's way back on the stage this week.

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a bright sunny morning but really cold!The highs for the day were 35 and the lows will be 19,its 28 right now and I don't think we got past 32 for the day.Mom got us up and fed and cleaned and then she collected some laundry to wash just in case she had a chance to put it in before she had to leave.She called Nana and Nana told her that she should stay home and catch up with things here,that she was all right,skin bro was there with her and she had a VNA visit in the afternoon,and she was doing fine.Then Mom called skin sis back and told her to come on down as she was wanting to spend some time with Mom on her day off,so she came with my frother and fister and her laundry to do.My dad took Mom's car to get a new battery put in it and then skin bro came over for a little while as he had a job interview in Hyannis to get to,after he left skin sis and Mom folded the laundry and Mom made lunch for dad and skin sis and herself.They sat and ate together and after lunch,my dad decided to do the taxes so Mom got all that stuff out to get it done and he even did skin bro's taxes and all they have to do is Nana's taxes and then that will be done.It was a really laid back kind of a day and Mom was so tired she couldn't seem to move very fast.She tried to preen Kallie who really needed it but he kept trying to bite Mom so Mom had Celine preen him and she got some of it done but then she started to beat him up.Then Mom let me do some of my tricks to see just which ones I could still do.Skin sis had Celine do some of my tricks too.And all the while Candida was looking and watching,she had better pay attention as she and our cousin Trixie II are going to be learning them also.Mom was so proud of me,I did mostly everything but I can no longer climb up the slide and slide down,my twisted toes refuse to cooperate with me.Shortly afterwards skin sis left to go home and then Mom gave my dad a haircut and after she cleaned up from that,she gave us our late afternoon snack before she took a shower and made blueberry pancakes for dinner for my dad and now we are getting to snuggle with her in my clean blanket.
Oh do we know what you mean about being in lockdown day after day,that's how its been for all of us here,between my Mom not being home anymore and my dad being gone working all night because of the snow.We think that's really fantastic that your sweet Parronts wrote that 4 page complaint letter for the people who are putting on the meeting.If one doesn't let anyone know how you feel then nothing will ever get done to remedy it!Mom and I think your sweet Parronts are awesome to not be afraid to speak their minds!Mom and I sure do hope that the people at the meeting will listen to what they have to say!
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

Dad put the Happy Hut back in my cage. He took it out when I was having my behavior problems a couple months ago. We're trying it back in - I was so happy to be sleeping in my wonderful hut.
Great to have it back, at least for now.

Dad is having a BluRay Cinema Day here. Friends don't own BluRay Players, so they're coming over to see a movie or two in his BluRay collection.

I'm sure I'll get some snacks from them today.

  Hi Ginger
Please forgive the c/p yet again as Mom is having a hard time trying to catch up with everything!By the time she gets home she's too tired to do much of anything these days.
This morning was a dark snowy morning and cold,the highs for the day were 37 and the lows will be 28.It's 37 right now!Mom barely got us all cleaned and fed with our breakfast when skin bro came to get her so she quickly got dressed and they left to go and find out where Nana's surgeons office was as she has an appointment with the surgeon on the 26th for the checkup on her hip surgery.They were riding around in the snow all the time before they actually found the place in some kind of industrial park where there were all kinds of other Drs offices.So now that they know where its at they will be able to get Nana there without being late.Nana was supposed to have the VNA visit her today but she had called up and cancelled it until tomorrow.When Mom and skin bro got back to Nana's house,they had some coffee and Mom made the coffee and they had some fruit tart that Mom had bought yesterday on her grocery trip.Then Mom helped Nana change her clothes and she watered all her plants that were dying as no one thought to water them while she was in the hospital and rehab.Mom swept up the kitchen floor and then they all went into the tv room and watched a little tv before skin bro took Mom home to make dinner for our dad.Mom is going to try and get some more things done in the house tomorrow before she has to leave for Nana's again.She still has to give our dad a haircut and hasn't been able to do that in a month now so maybe before she leaves she'll give him a haircut then.
Dad got home from work at 3:30 this morning and he was hungry so Mom gave him a bowl of cereal to eat and then they went to bed and all of us had to go back to our cages!Now that wasn't fair!Here we thought we'd be sleeping with Mom all night long!
We are all wishing your sweet parronts friend in the rehab hospital best wishes and we are hoping he gets to go to a rehab place that will be good to him and help him get better.It was so good that your parronts found out about his moving to a new place before he got moved out!
My Mom is hoping to have tomorrow off but that depends on how Nana is feeling and if skin bro could use her help getting things done!Nana thinks that she should take tomorrow to catch up on her own household chores and our cages!And for her to be able to sit down and relax rather than jumping up and throwing food at us and doing a quick clean up and just running out the door like she has been doing for the last three weeks or more!
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

Dad has a busy weekend with friends, but he makes time to spoil me as well. Today I got carrots (in the correct size and shape). He is so thoughtful.

  e and when she got there she made fresh lunches up for my dad,then made his dinner,egg&cheese omelet with pan fried English Muffins and then when skin sis came over for Mom to take a thorn out of her thumb,she too stayed and Mom made her an Egg McMuffin type sandwich with an omelet with cheese and she had some cornbread hot from the oven with Mom.Then Mom cleaned up the kitchen and shortly afterwards skin sis left as my dad had left earlier around 6:00pm instead of waiting til 7:00pm as the snow was really coming down hard!My dad will be gone all night and hopefully he'll get to come home sometime in the morning,the snow is supposed to stop by noontime tomorrow!Oh does my Mom only wish that she could have just one day to not have to go out and just to sleep late for one day!Soon she will be having skin sis to care for also along with Nana,us,skin sis's fids,my dad and the house chores which she is slowly slipping off of!Her day doesn't end at 5:00pm anymore or even 8:00pm,its been a very long three weeks for Mom and we are all missing her so bad being in lockdown every day now 24/7.
Mom really would love to get that movie Strange Magic also,she will try and find it as soon as she has a chance to stop for a minute and catch her breath!

  Hi Ginger
We woke up to a darkish grayish day here and the highs of 34 and the lows being 28,right now its 27 and snowing out and everything is covered in white already,it started around 5:00pm tonight. Skin bro came to pick Mom up early this morning and they collected Mom's trash and recycs and loaded it in skin bro's car then they went to Nana's and collected all her trash and recycs and then they left for the dump in skin bro's car,the man at the gate who knows Mom and Nana wanted to know why Mom was in skin bros car and she told him it was because they couldn't get to Nana's car as the VNA was there blocking them in as usual.He let them in because he knows that Nana has a dump sticker on her car as he's the one who always puts it on for her!From there they went to Shaws/Star in Falmouth to get some groceries that Nana needed that were on sale and while they were there Mom got a lot of good buys on Italian Wedding Soup on the reduced rack,she bought 16 cans for $1.50 each and Mom got to the register to check out and she didn't have all that much and she was charged over $67.00.Mom had gotten some little strudel,a cornbread,a four pack of big red velvet muffins,a dozen eggs,and some other things that were on sale in the store flyer.As she was walking out the door with skin bro she checked her receipt and they were charging her $15.28 for one can of the marked down soup!Mom immediately went back to the courtesy desk and got her money back.The girl there couldn't believe it!Then from there they went to Roche Bro's and picked up some things there for Nana that was on sale in the store flyers for that grocery store and then they went back to Nana's to drop all the groceries off that they got for her and went to the Fro Yo place to bring home some Fro Yo for their lunch,they all sat together and enjoyed the fro yo and then Mom brought out the mini strudels and they each had one of those.Then Mom made coffee for them all and cleaned out the Keurig and she vacuumed the Bird Room and Nana's bedroom for her,helped Nana change her undies as she had another grueling workout with the VNA today.She is now being told to start walking a little faster as her leg is healing nicely,so she can move a bit faster in the walker and she showed Mom as she walked down the hallway today.The VNA had her bring her leg up to her chin in a bent position,she was really hurting after that one,but she is really in a hurry to get back to where she was before the bad fall!The VNA just can't believe that Nana isn't screaming out in pain with all the leg movements she is being made to go through!Nana told her what am I supposed to do?Lay there and don't do anything to help myself get better?I don't think so!
After Mom dust busted Nana's tv room to make it a bit neater from all the things that come off everyones shoes that come in the front door she and Anthony left as my dad had called to let Mom know that he had to be back into work by 7:00pm tonight so they both left so Mom could go hom
