In need of a place to stay until a new home could be found for me, I and my Blue & Gold brother were offered room and board among the McFlock. Having spent 15 years with my first family, this incredible change caused me great concern for my well-being and even more so for that of my brother. I put all my energies into protecting him, a behavior that made it appear that I was never going to be a happy bird again. Surprisingly though, the morning after I bid my blue & gold buddy good-bye, I morphed into this completely different bird, one that was cuddly, sweet, and magically irresistible. You must know where this is going....
The fact that RaneBeau liked my company worked in my favor as well.

Hi! My name is Reba of the McFlock

I am a Green-Winged Macaw from Larchland, IL.

Reba~Baby (My former name was "Baby" so I hear both from time to time.)

18 years old   F

Green-Winged Macaw

Walnuts, most definitely. And in the shell's not an issue.

RaneBeau's cage because it's the closest to the door of my room. It doesn't hurt to be the first bird mom encounters when she comes into the room. When out in the aviary, I have to sit on the middle hanging branches because I want to gnaw on the panels if I'm sitting on perches attached to the walls. (I know, shame on me.) My roving playstand is the one with the biggest branches; there has to be something substantial for me to chew on or I break the perch and end up on the floor.

RaneBeau, thinking he can tell me I can't walk out the door of the bird room.

I was supposed to be here for only a short while. I'm looking at forever now. What's not to love about that!

Thank you, RaneBeau, for being willing to share Mom with another macaw. That willingness is perhaps the primary reason I've been invited to stay.

Wishing "Ellis" all the best with his new family. I'll miss you always.


My fetish with string and leather currently amuses my family. I love to unravel the ends.

For some odd reason, I have to be the LAST to be taken in from the aviary. I keep side stepping away from an offered arm if there's anybirdie else yet in the parrot pen. Is it because I want to make sure everybirdie else is in safely first or is that I'm hoping by being the last one out there that I'll snag a little extra one-on-one time with mom? Hmmm. Good question.

"Foster": It sounds like forever to me..

  Hi Reba, the love of my life,
it is good out here in sunny WA...I don't know if you have been on FB lately but mom has been posting pic and videos of a robin that has a nest right over our back deck with three baby robins who have grown up right in front of mom. The babies are really big and mom thinks they will be leaving the nest very soon as one of the babies has been sitting on the edge of the nest flapping his wings. Mom will be sad when they go...

I was out in the sunroom with mom this evening, it started getting pretty windy outside. We were watching mom and dad robin and the babies. It was fun to be there with mom giving me scritches on my head. Tomorrow is shower time...

I do love my walnuts too so there is no complaining when one hits my treat cup...

Hugs and Kisses, love your one and only, Simon ♥

  Hi Reba, the love of my life,
I love walking around the garden with you, look over there by the fence, do you see the beautiful pink rhododendrons and dark pink azaleas in full bloom now? The flowers are so beautiful but pale in comparison to your beauty.
I don't think I'll be able to mow down any doors or trim like you are able to my dear. Mom will have none of that here...I think she would shoot me...lol
How is your project of working on the door this past weekend and did you dad get the plywood put in the door covering up your handiwork?

I think the Derby was so much fun, the race was very exciting to watch. I was hoping for Jewels and Gemologist would win but at least she finished fourth. The mint juleps were sooooo good. As usual, the band was awesome and being able to dance with you was like the mint in my julep...

We have air, we had to change the whole unit and not just the compressor so we got a new heat pump and so far it is working great. We haven't had any really high temperatures yet, we are in the lower 70s right now and should be in the mid 80s later in the week....

Mom has had dad working around the house and in the garden and he told her he doesn't want to here the words "I've been thinking" again as that means work for dad...lol
Mom had dad plant some geraniums and another rose this weekend and put together a shelving unit for the gardening shed so all gardening equipment and stuff can be stored there instead of in the garage. Mom helped of course...

Love, Love, Love...you're love is all I need...

Hugs and kisses...your boyfriend, Simon ♥

  Rudy, my love,
how could you even entertain a thought like that? You are not a bad girlfriend, you are the best. Just because we don't talk to each other a lot doesn't mean we don't love and care about each other.

Spring has sprung around here and mom has posted a couple of pics but will put some more up. Right now there is a couple of a robin that built her nest in our pergola this year. We think she has laid her eggs now as she is sitting on the nest a lot now. She didn't even move when the gardeners came by with their mowers and blowers right up on the deck. Mom is excited to watch the little ones grow up, in the one picture you can see her close up in her nest and the other is the view of the nest that mom has from her kitchen window...she can actually see the nest much better than the pic indicates.

I have finally decided that I do like to chew wood...mom made me a toy with wood and I have been chewing on it and destroying it. I am no where as good as you so maybe I need to come over and you can teach me to be a better wood chewer...I don't have any money...gave it all to mom but what I do have for barter are some of my kisses...*Simon gives Reba a sample kiss*...well, what do you think?

The parronts are at the race track right now but it has been to cold and windy so far so dad hasn't taken the bike out of the trailer yet. They bought the trailer last year. Dad is just fine and really ready to race but safely, hopefully, the weather will improve enough for him...

The other bit of news I have or that I can remember is that we have no air conditioning at the house. It is not hot today but the last two days have been in the 90s. We are spoiled and want our air and boy does Harley...

Will you be able to come to the Derby with me? Hope so, I'd love to walk around with you on my wing...

All the love in the world is yours...love you so very much...your Simon ♥

  Simon gives Reba a kiss,
We had another beautiful day here again, getting spoiled and we like it. Mom finished planting her flowers today and she is going to take a picture of it tomorrow. Dad sat outside with while she was planting her flowers so that was nice. The trees in the backyard are full of flowers and full of bees. Mom hung a hummingbird feeder on the tree but she didn't put any juice in it yet.

When mom washed all the windows outside the sunroom she noticed that water leaked in at the bottom of the sunroom. Luckily, the water stains will wash up with a little soap, water, and elbow grease. Dad picked up a can of stuff that is supposed to stop leaks, he saw it on TV and was able to get some at Wal*Mart. If it doesn't work then it is easy to return and get our money back. We sure hope it does work though.

Mom got the newsletter for the bird club all done and sent out. She also got the video of Napoleon on Facebook.

Love you so very much...your Simon ♥

  Hi Reba, the love of my life,
Just a quick update...

We had an absolute gorgeous day today, the sun was shining and not a bit of wind. It got up to 76º, mom wishes it would stay this way for at least 9 months...she was out on the back deck and planted some pretty pansies. She also cleaned a couple of the chairs and the table to. She still has two more chairs and another table to do yet along with a few more flowers. She told dad that she was thinking and that always scares dad...hehe...there is a cute cement bird bath in the front yard that is not being used by birds so mom wants it moved to a spot in the back yard...problem is that it is super heavy so mom has a plan to ask the gardeners to move it for her...they are young and strong...hehe. Mom then had another brilliant idea...there is a water fountain in the sunroom that doesn't really get used and now she wants it moved outside in the backyard beside the deck so that they can hear it when they are sitting outside...the problem again is it is made of cement and it is really, really, really heavy...hopefully, the gardeners will be able to move it as well. That will also give mom a little more room in the sunroom...

Dad has his rescheduled doctor's appointment tomorrow so for sure they don't want to be late again...lol

Hugs and Kisses and all of my love, Simon ♥

XOXOXO

  Hi Rudy, my love,
we are having spring here, it has been pretty nice here lately and today was beautiful. The grass is growing fast now and we have our new gardener coming once a week to cut it. We wanted our big arborvitae trees trimmed as we had one die a few years back and it was much shorter than the rest. The gardener did an awesome job on them, we expected him to just cut off the tops but he went a step further and actually shaped all of the trees for us. The parronts are very happy with their work and their reasonable prices.

Dad had his first colonoscopy on Monday and it went very well, he doesn't have to go back for 10 years. That was great news...

I love it when mom takes care of my pins, as you can see in my picture gallery where I am laying on mom's lap...second row.

Mom hasn't gotten her flowers yet, the weather went kind of bad and mom is not going to do any planting when the weather is anything but sunny and warm. The parronts are planning on going to the store after his doctor's appointment tomorrow morning...just a routine one to finish up his physical for his racing license.

I sure hope that you are done with snow now and you can see the grass. I bet you are looking forward to going out into your aviary soon.
The parronts had lunch out in the sunroom today...it has been really nice in their lately.

I am eagerly waiting to see your derby hat...will you go to the derby with me?

I have to find a nice derby hat too...if you see one that I would look good in...let me know where it is, okay?

Simon gives Reba a very passionate kiss...love and kisses, Simon XOXOXO

  Hi Reba, the love of my life,
we are all happy campers here now...we are thinking that spring has sprung...the weather has turned the corner. Our temperatures are in the 60s during the day and in the 50s at night. Mom actually was able to do a little gardening in the back yard, not really in the back yard but on the deck cleaning up some of the planters. Some of the mums are really starting to grow so mom is happy about that. She is planning on getting some pretty primroses to put in all of her planters for some spring color.

That happens a lot here when the vacuum cleaner is running...it is a trigger for baths. I can't get my head into my water bowl but I flap my wings and usually mom will bring over the water bottle and mist me. I actually like it.

Don't you just hate it when you almost have what you want and then mom takes it away...hehe

With much, much love~your Simon ♥

  Reba, sweetie,
I am so happy that your flowers arrived in time and that you like them. My dad did pretty good with the flower giving as well...the bouquet is huge! Mom has never had anything that big before. Mom's nail lady does a great job for her, mom really likes the way the designs are put on cause it doesn't show grow out so they last longer. I think your nails would look beautiful if you decided to have them done but they are beautiful just the way they are.

There is not a lot new here either, mom has been buying Seahawks items left and right...lol She is going through withdrawal right now...she is reading a lot about the 'Hawks and she is watching the NFL channel too.

Our snow is all gone, it only lasted a few days and the the temperatures went up to almost 60º which was quite a jump from below freezing...

Mom has been watching some of the Winter Olympics, she likes watching them skiing etc, she just doesn't want to be in it...lol

There is a Home Show starting tomorrow and the parronts are thinking about going, that might not be a good idea as she might get some gardening ideas...hehe

*Simon holds Reba's face in his wings and gives her a very passionate kiss*

Love, Simon ♥

  Reba, sweetie,
so wonderful to see you my love. OMG, mom was so loud when she watched the Seahawks become World Champions. I think she was even louder than me and that's saying something...
She was so happy when they won. She would have been dancing if she could have. The 'Hawks deserved the win, they worked hard for it and us 12s did too.

We have some snow left from about three days worth of snow, nothing like what you guys have but for us a big deal when we get about 8-10" of that white stuff. Mom doesn't do snow so she has been home staying warm. We did have a neighbor shovel our sidewalk and a friend came over and shoveled the driveway...that was very nice of them to help out dad as shoveling is way to hard for him to do anymore.

I have been enjoying the few sunny days we have had. The sunroom gets really nice when the sun does shine.

*Simon snuggles next to Reba and puts his wing around her, then looks into her eyes* Reba will you be my Valentine?

awwww, shucks mam...you make me blush with all your compliments on my pictures...

I do love a good shower, bet you'd love it more if we took a shower together....

Oh, yes, I will be watching the Super Bowl with the folks. Mom will be decked out in her Seahawk gear. Dad will be munching on Doritos and maybe mom will make us some popcorn to munch on...good idea...

Dad is doing great now...the flu did throw him for a loop though so he is actually thinking of getting the shot next year...

Taz is definitely the garbage disposal of wood around these parts. I have been enjoying my toy that I got around Christmas, mom says that I am easy on my toys, odd for a big macaw like me...

I think it is time for spring already and you all should be done with snow. Mom just looked a some of Chyna's mom's pictures of their snow...we'd be lost forever in the snow there...

Of course the invitation to come over still stands, you are always welcome here. It was really nice and sunny here yesterday and the sunroom got up to 79º...nice and toasty.

Mom's hands are giving her a fit tonight, she is having a terrible time typing. She keeps missing a letter or two on a word...

Come on over and sit right here beside me...Simon pats the love seat...

Hugs, kisses, and my love...your Simon ♥

  Hi Reba, the love of my life,
that is a Christmas present that mom got when she went to her bird club's Christmas party. I was the lucky one who got it...I am slowly working on the wood, mom hung it on my play stand so I had something to play with there.
I know if you had it near your pretty beak that all the wood would have been long gone.

It is pretty painful for the parronts to see a $35 toy destroyed in a matter of hours. Mom gives Tazzie a chunk of wood and he is a happy boy...he doesn't need fancy toys but he does need his wood. He is fine with the wood just being put in the toy bowl that he has in his house. He can demolish a piece of 2"x4"x4" in a couple of hours...once he starts he keeps going until it is nothing but a pile of toothpicks...lol
Chica loves the wood also but she prefers hers on a SS chain so she can work on it while on her boing, once she has it chewed through to the hole and it falls off then she is done with it. The parronts give her left overs to Taz to finish off...

Dad is feeling a little better today so hopefully he will be pretty good in a couple more days and you are right "my lunch lady" is ready for some assistance...

Boy o boy...sure is a lot of snow out in your aviary so might be a while before you can go out there but you could come over and sit with me in the sunroom...when the sun is shinning it gets nice and cozy in there...usually in the 80s...

I will have sweet dreams of you tonight...

All my love ~ Simon ♥

  Hi Reba, how is the love of my life,
on this fourth day of the brand new year 2014. All is well here except for the fact that dad has been sick as you know for almost a week...he started feeling yucky last Sunday. He was in bed for a couple of days and started to feel a little better but after the parronts got home from shopping on Friday he started to feel crappy again. He didn't do much while at the store, he sat in the dining room of the Subway while he waited for mom. Mom had the hardest job though as she had to go around the store getting the groceries...she did use one of their electric carts or she couldn't do it anymore.
Mom thinks he over did it on Friday, he helped mom bring in the groceries and that was a tough job when you don't feel so good. Mom is making him rest now.

Mom now has the task of cleaning our houses and getting our breakfast ready. Well, I know your mom would understand but dad just doesn't do things the way mom does but normally there is not much she can do about it...so she has been trying to get our houses up to snuff but it is hard and time consuming. Poor mom is exhausted but is determined to get it all done. We now know that we won't be getting breakfast but lunch, so we now call mom "the lunch lady" we also call her "meals on wheels" get it...hehe

Whatever happened during your photo shoot doesn't matter as your beauty always shines through...love you.

Mom looked up "Things for Wings" and it sure looks like one she visited years ago when she was in Vancouver visiting her aunt. The toy looks really cool, maybe Saber will decide not to play with it and you will get it...Mom would like to know the cost if your mom doesn't mind sharing it...

Mom is tired so I'll close now, gotta take care of the "lunch lady" as I do like to eat...

How about a kiss pretty lady...KISS, KISS

Simon ♥

I love our New Year's picture...and all the new ones of you...hehe...there you are with RB on the floor in the kitchen...have you tried a cabinet yet? Chloe decided to chew on the back of a kitchen cabinet and mom was not a happy camper but thank goodness you can't see it...whew!

I did manage to do a little damage to a kitchen cabinet once in our other house...the molding was quite good...hehe

Okay, what is that toy you are enjoying made of?

Dad is sick and was in bed all day yesterday and most of today so he won't see the new year in...

  Hi Reba,
sometimes it does feel like forever, okay, most of the time...
Did your mom have a good time visiting her parents?

Unfortunately, the Seahawks lost their game last Sunday. They play the Giants this Sunday and it is going to be cold and might snow. That is not good for the 'Hawks since they are not really used to playing in such bad weather. They are having an awesome season but they still need to win so they will have home field advantage for the playoffs.

I chuckle every time I look at the first picture in your gallery...do you think that your mom would send my mom the original photo?

I am glad that you were a good girl so you didn't have to go into lockdown. Oh, how cute that you were squawking etc to get your mom's attention...

I think that sounds like a super idea to take full advantage of that mistletoe...kiss kiss

XOXOXOXO
Love, Simon ♥

  Reba, sweetie,
I am doing great, today is Sunday and that means football. Right now our Seahawks are taking on the San Francisco 49ers, there is quite a rivalry between the two teams. Our Seahawks have the best record and need to win two more games to clinch home field advantage...Mom loves watching the 'Hawks play...

Time does go by fast doesn't it, doesn't seem like I have been a Proctor for over 12 years...

I did get a lovely turkey bone to gnaw on, it was oh so good.
Mom had a hard time getting a picture of me with the plate and showing the words, she had to be quick though cause it was my desire to destroy it first...

How lucky that you are able to chew up the door trim and the door, mom would have my feathers for that...lol
Good thing RaneBeau is your frother or I might get mighty jealous...I think I could take him...haha
I say...go for it, next time he bonks you then give him a good bonk back!

I always enjoy it when you are able to come over here and visit for a while. I love you very much...now a few kisses would be nice...

XOXOXOX
Lots of love,
Simon ♥

  Reba, my love,
I love the pictures of you in your gallery where you doing your exercises...you are in such good shape, now I know why. I also love your profile picture...thanks for the compliment on mine...I don't get to go out like you so mom had me pose in the sunroom...mom entered me and my picture in a contest on Facebook by Bird Tricks.com.

All is well in our home...mom of course doesn't like the fact that it is starting to get cold out now.

I miss you a lot as well but as you know it seems to be that our moms run out of time...

It almost time for the K-Kritter company to head on home. I bet their mom, Eva misses them so very much.

That is good that for the most part everybirdie gets along pretty good with mom watching of course...hehe

The parronts bought on of those NutriBullets the other day and dad has been having a smoothie every night instead of a milkshake...he wants to lose a couple of pounds...

Our gardener noticed that the right side of the roof looked like it had a bow in it so dad called our contractor to look at it and he said that yes it is bowed and he will be over next week to take a closer look at it from the attic. He said not to worry that it is an easy fix that shouldn't cost much to fix...keep your toes crossed that he is right...can't afford a big dollar fix right now.

Mom starts on her pension the 16th of this month so that is good...

Love and even more kisses are for you...your Simon ♥ XOXOXO

  Oh, Miss Reba...it's your sweet boyfriend here...
we had a wonderfully warm night tonight for Halloween, this is the first time that the parronts got to sit outside and greet the trick or treaters. It was a slow night vs last year. This year we only had about 250 kids and last year we had around 400 kids...

Some friends came over to see all the kids and to see their reactions to 'George' the dancing skeleton...mom put a pic of him in my gallery...

How was your Halloween? Yesterday, mom got to sit outside for about and hour reading a book on her Kindle, the book is 'The Parrot Told Me'. It has an African Grey in it...would have been better with a macaw as the leading character...lol

I bet your mom is super busy and super tired with all the visitors staying at your house. Does everybirdie get along with each other? I saw that your boarders might be going home in a couple of weeks...

~~~KISS~~~KISS~~~KISS~~~

I love you, beautiful...Simon ♥

  Oh, Reba...
I am back for more of your sweet, sweet kisses...

Two of our trees in the backyard are almost bare of leaves now but the others haven't started yet...that way we have leaves in the yard for a long, long time...hehe...dad doesn't like them but mom and I love seeing the leaves...

I thought I'd start taking out the inside of my pumpkin so that there would be room for both of us...

That Miss Riley is one heck of a chewer isn't she...hard to believe that she can out do you...no wood will go to waste at your place as long as she is there...

We have been having such nice weather but not today, we woke up to fog, rain, and some wind. That is the way it has been all day, good day for staying in and watching football...

XXX XXX XXX XX
More kisses please...

  Hi Sweetie Pie ♥
oh, those kisses of yours...heaven in a beak...

Mom is way behind tonight, she was working on a new Halloween pic for Rosie and then she started on one for me...she lost all track of time...that happens a lot when she is playing with photos...

I do that too, if the food is something I really, really like then I am very careful not to drop any crumbs too. Tonight, mom gave us all some crackers with peanut butter on it...yum, mom doesn't bake much right now but she needs to get with it and make some of Dixie's recipes...

Come on over and we can sit in the sunroom and enjoy the yard and each other...

I am in need of some more of your kisses...XOXOXOXOXOXO

  Reba, sweetie,
we haven't been on since Saturday afternoon, I know that I was having withdrawal from missing you.

My Seahawks lost yesterday...bummer. Marshawn Lynch got fined for wearing green shoes in the game against Huston...silly rule...

Dad did what he wanted to do at the races, he broke his own track record by a lot...his previous record for a motorcycle was 5.60 seconds in the eighth mile and his new one is 5.50 seconds. He shattered his old one. It is really hard to drop a whole 10th in drag racing. He was really thrilled that everything on the bike worked and worked well...

Fall is in the air now, the wind is blowing and the leaves are starting to fall. This is my favorite time of year...so beautiful but not as beautiful as you, my love.

You are my perfect match...love, Simon ♥ XOXOXO

  Reba, sweetie,
well, mom and dad left really early in the morning for the races. We had to get up way to soon this morning to have breakfast but at least we can take a nap later.

The day is beautiful with sunshine and no wind...Dad has had one trip down the track so far and it went well, everything worked...yeah!

Mom is doing pretty well with her chair but some of the doorways have been hit a time or two...she can get in and out of the trailer all on her own using her chair. She got the arm caught a little bit on the table and scuffed up one of the arms of the chair...ooooops!

Glad you like mom's nails...she was thinking about the bike colors but you're right, they are my colors too...

Hope you are having an awesome weekend and you get to go out and enjoy some sunshine today.

That is nice of your mom to help out Dixie with his profile pictures for his BOTM run.

I love to sit with my mom too, I love it when she preens me but sometimes I want to investigate more...like what is on the table that shouldn't be so naturally I have to remove it. Then I want to check out the other chair etc, that usually ends with me going back to my play stand.
Gosh, I wish you wouldn't pull out your pretty feathers especially when it hurts you so much. If it hurts you then it hurts me as well.

The marching ants have subsided and only come out on occassion now, so that is much better.

Love and kisses for my best girl...XOXOXOXO Simom ♥

  Hey Miss Reba!
Thanks for visiting! I'm always so happy to hear from you my dear friend!
You know, you're right. Mom and dad truly do love living here and are quite emotionally attached to the place and the beautiful wildlife. It's just that it has become necessary for them to move on. With mom's health issues, as the parronts age, they know they can't maintain this property let alone navigate the extremely steep 75 foot driveway plus the private drive down to the street. Just getting the garbage can down there and back up again is a chore. And, mom's parronts need some help. When mom was there visiting, her dad actually told her he needed help. Mom is worried now because he NEVER says he needs anything - part of that greatest generation that takes great pride in being self-sufficient. He'll be 90 next year and it's beginning to tell on him. Mom's mom doesn't want any strangers helping her with anything and she is fragile and sometimes a bit difficult although mom understand what with all her pain and health issues as well. So, while not an easy decision, a necessary one nonetheless. It's so good to know that you understand and can empathize - it helps, let me tell you, and I'm grateful! In the meantime, there's lots to be done and it's not really going to be fun, but mom and dad are also looking forward to a new beginning in a nice place.
Big winghugs!
Mackie

  Reba, you are the apple of my eye,
and you know how much I love you.

Well, finally, mom has started to feel better...today, she actually feels human again. It sure was a really crappy five days and mom sure doesn't want to go through that ever again. After her trip to Oregon, things got worse for her at home. She was unable to sleep at all and spent Thursday and Friday in the living room watching TV all night. She thinks that the new meds did not agree with her, she stopped taking the new stuff Friday afternoon to see if that would help and it did. It took a few days but at least now she is doing better. She has a call in to her doctor but hasn't heard back yet.

Dad is sure hoping that this weekend is nice as it is the last race of the season and he'd really like to get a few runs in before next season. The weather guessers are saying it is going to be nice and sunny so keep your toes crossed...

Nothing much new since mom hasn't been anywhere and the weather has been so wet and windy but at least right now the sun is shinning but the wind is really bad.

I love you...your Simon ♥

  Hi Reba, the love of my life,
wanted to stop by and give you a great big kiss and keep you up to date on what's happening with my mom so here goes...

Mom had two cortisone/steroid shots on Tuesday, one in both shoulders and she is hurting so a c/p is in order for mom. Those shots hurt like heck, I would use a stronger word but mom won't let me swear. On the first shot he had mom breathe during the procedure but it was hard to do at first and mom screamed but she started to laugh through the pain when she saw dad, he was breathing along with mom and he couldn't look at mom due to the needle. On her left shoulder the doc didn't want mom to breathe, he was afraid that she might pass out so when this needle went in they heard mom out in the hallway. Hopefully, this will eventually help with the pain.

My mom sure doesn't want to have any surgeries. The doc thinks that mom's issues with her shoulders etc. originally began when mom started using the walkers and just got worse over time.

Well, the parronts were up really early yesterday to get on the road, mom was up at 4am and we were up at 4:30am, much to early...They were out the door by 5:30am and got home around 6pm.
This was the worst trip mom has ever had, she was hurting all the way there and all the way back. Her foot was killing her she told dad it felt like there were ants with razor blades on their feet walking all over her foot and up her leg from the inside, and both her shoulders were hurting big time and she just felt bad and her face was flushed/hot. She is feeling a little better now that she is home, so another short night for mom...

The walkers are good but it depends on how you use the walker, mom had only the one leg she could use so she had to put so much pressure on the walker to get around and she did that for 3 years. She should have had a power chair a long time ago.

Mom's doctor told her that they would chip away at her problems and mom told him to chip faster...lol, he has a sense of humor and mom can talk to him. She told him it was pretty bad when she had to have dad put her bra on and dress her since she couldn't do it because of the pain it caused.

Mom was watching TV and blogging and relaxing while dad is asleep in his chair last night.

Mom had a crappy night and didn't get much sleep, up a lot with pain. Acckkkkk.

Hopefully, things will resolve and she'll start to feel better in a few more days...

All my love, your guy, Simon ♥

  Hi Reba
HAPPY HUMPDAY

well its finally happened. the asian carp is invading pa rivers and waters. the asian carp is more commonly known as goldfish. the plankton eating goldfish were originally imported by southern catfish farmers to clean up algae and also used in sewage treatment plants. they can quickly over run and wipe out aquatic ecosystems by eating the plankton native species rely on to survive. they escaped and traveled up the mississippi river and its tributaries and a electric barrier is all that is preventing them from entering lake michigan and the illinois river. they are escaping that and entering the great lakes. boaters in the great lakes have reported that they have jumped out of the water and knocked them out of their boats when they are startled. they are planning to poison them which doesn't bode well for pa residents who rely on the rivers for their drinking water.

love Cori and Boo Boo

  Hi Reba, the love of my life,
I love your new pics and I stole a few for my page...you can have as many hugs and kisses as you want...

I am sorry that I have not been over to visit you but mom is having a tough time doing much typing these days.

I can hardly wait until next baseball season is here, that is if there is one, we get to be together much more often as you said.

When my mom was talking to your mom on the phone, she was in her office and that is away from where we all are so even if I had been vocal she wouldn't have been able to hear me anyway. Next time mom will bring the phone into the bird room and that should do it and I'll try to say something. I did greet some of the bird club members but in my own way...I kept telling them "goodbye"...lol

Mom is starting to get the hang of driving her new chair. One of the best things that mom likes is that she can now go on the lawn. The other day she sat out on the lawn in the shade while dad was cleaning the back deck for the picnic. She hasn't done that in a long time...

Love you and can't wait until Saturday night...I'll have the prettiest gal on my wing...your Simon ♥

  Hi Reba
mom has not had a chance to go out and sit on the porch. it will be torn up again in a few days when the carpenter comes and replaces the fascia and sofit. mom is concerned about damage to the shrubs. still there is nothing you can do and the work needs to be done. oh well there is always next year. its getting pretty cool here at night into the mid 40s. i guess fall is finally here.. hope you had a wonderful day.
