  Hi Cookie
Snow on turkey day isn't unusual for us. We usually have some on Halloween. One year, we had the first snow on September 5th!
I sure hope that storm doesn't hit everyone like they are saying.
I was very helpful to mom today. She was baking for the holiday. we are all set now ... but mom says she still have a lot of laundry to do ... that's not my job ... hehehe.
Looks like Thursday will be snow with a high of 25 and a low of 14. That's ok cause I get to enjoy a special dinner with my parronts!
Wishing all of you a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Come visit me, Chyna ~ Happy Thanksgiving & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  HI Cookie
We have about a foot of snow now and I think we will have more tomorrow. It is the heavy wet kind so it is squishy out. I am glad I can relax inside:) At least the roads are good:)

Mom got some more peanuts for the jays outside and they sure appeared as soon as mom put some out:) Or should I say the jays appeared and the peanuts disappeared! LOL!

Yeah, we had all our decorations up before Halloween. We finished about the 29th so you can believe we were listening to Christmas music then too....LOL! MOm loves decorating for Christmas and puts a lot up and it looks magical:)

I hope you and yours have a very Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow! Enjoy!

Hi Cookie,
All of our snow melted, but maybe we'll get a little more tomorrow. Daddy got to come home this afternoon. So he'll get to go to skin sis's for Thanksgiving dinner if he feels all right. I hope that they'll bring me something yummy. Mommy says she will. She's making the cranberry sauce, pumpkin squares for dessert with homemade whipped cream and granddaughter's favorite...cinnamon-apple jell-o. We all wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving...and don't forget to tell God how thankful you are.
Lots of Love, Little Miss Lucy♥

you are just so very brave to growl like that and warn your daddy that their was a raccoon sleeping on the deck. poor little coonie must have been very cold. mom used to have 2 coonies as pets. she doesn't recommend it to anyone. talk about high maintenance and lots of work. she spent at least 8 hours a day with them. we love coonies you can't even begin to imagine how smart they are but they have no desire to please or listen to you. its all on their terms only.

mom always does our blogging for us after we go to bed at night.last night while mom was playing with Cori and me before bedtime she noticed this sour smell coming from Coris mouth and nares. naturally mom panicked and first thought that came to her mind was sour crop which can be very dangerous. Cori of course was acting fine, maybe not playing as much as usual but sure wanting lots of head scritches. no loss of appetite cause mom gave hera cashew and shegobbled it right down. Cori did seem to be very thirsty so mom added a tiny amount of apple cider viinegar to her water and she drank quite a lot of it. mom was going to take her to the vet first thing in the morning. instead of doing our blogging she was doing research on sour crop. this morning when mom got up the sour smell had dissipated quite a bit but is still there. Cori still eating and drinking and acting fine so mom will continue with the vinegar and see if the smell goes away completely.

mom had to run to the store for a few things and after coming home and bringing her packages inside she noticed 2 house wrens that seem to be tangled up in something who were making quite a ruckus. mom left her packages on the front porch and got a step stool from inside to stand on so she could reach the braanch. they had somehow gotten their legs caught in a birdhouse mom had stuffed with our doggies hair clippings from this spring. mom tried to pull the hair out with one hand while holding the birds with her other hand but she coudlnt pull the hair out. she then gently pulled the birds legs out of the hair. she doesn't know if all the hair was off the legs or if their legs were damaged but , man, did they ever fly way fast. mom then pulled out all the tightly packed doggie hair clippings from the bird house and threw it away.something else for mom to feel guilty about.


love Boo Boo

We got a dusting of snow though it snowed all day it didnt cause problems on the high way.
Skin sis and family were going down their road and all of a sudden a deer ran across in front of their car and SIL slammed on the brakes but the deer hit the car. The one headlight is broken and the deer landed on the hood and then ran up into the woods. Son in law feeds the deer all winter so he really felt bad and the grand didn’t say anything for a long time and then just hoped he was ok and didn’t die. Good they all had seat belts on and nobody got hurt. Now starts the process of getting the car repaired and all that hassle. “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole stair case.“ Dropping a vote in your basket.

  Hi Cookie
I can't believe all the snow you guys are all getting there today!That's just what happened to us years ago when the skin sibs were little,we had a Thanksgiving eve blizzard the night before that went right through the whole of Thanksgiving day and Mom and all of us never had a Thanksgiving that year,it got postponed to another day as everyone was busy plowing themselves out!
We woke up to a dark as night time day here with temperatures at 45 and then they quickly dropped to 43 and the rain just kept on pouring down,the lawns and yards are flooded and the lows for tonight will be 34 and Mom and all of us are just praying it won't freeze up so my dad won't have to go to work and Mom and everyone has to cancel Thanksgiving dinner!
Nana called Mom early this morning and wants Mom to come over to her house early tomorrow morning so she can help her prepare the meal and get all the cooking ready!Mom will try and get to Nana's by 10:00am as Nana isn't feeling well,quite dizzy and tired.Its been dark as night time and the rain just keeps pouring down,can you believe that Mom had to put the light on in our room at two this afternoon?That sure is a lot of snow you're getting there even if it was downgraded to 6-8 inches!It still means lots of shoveling and work!I sure do hope that your company will be able to come and spend Thanksgiving with you safely!Poor Aunt Mary trying to get anything done with those kids,its hard when all they can think about is getting out there in the snow and making snowballs and sledding!Its good it was only a half a day!
Now that's a very early Christmas card!We usually get our first one right after Thanksgiving!My Mom sure doesn't blame your wonderful Mom for not thinking about the cards,it seems like all the days and holidays are just flying in our faces this year,it seems like as soon as Halloween comes all the other holidays are one big blur!Mom just got some cornbread in the oven to take to Nana's tomorrow and if she has anymore time left she'll try and make a cranberry pudding to take over also!
I've been flying after Mom all day today as I've been really busy tearing up boxes,she already has 8 of them in the recycle bag that I decorated and designed today alone!
Momma Mary sure has been busy between working and getting the turkey ready to pop into the oven early in the morning!
If I don't get to be on BC tomorrow I want to wish you and your wonderful Mom and dad and family the best Thanksgiving ever!Mom's sister may be coming over tomorrow also to Nana's with some of her kids!They are all grown and some have moved out of the house and are living on their own and in college.It will be a long day for sure!So Mom isn't sure if we will be able to come and visit tomorrow night,but she is sure going to try and get us to BC!We are all so thankful that you are in our lives!You mean the world to all of us here and we love you more than you can know!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with w

Mom also made those energy bars for us to eat, it's in the baking pan.

Full of peanuts, peanut butter and raisins and granola for energy.

Also there's 2 pans of pineapple cake so help yourself.

Everyone grabs a juice box or a cup full of juice and sit in the shade and hydrate.

The boys sit with the boys and the girls sit with the girls going over their strategy.

Raffi says I dunno about you guys but them girls is strong players!

Yeah I agree says Dixie, who knew Little Angel had it in her!

The girls team discuss the boys too. Chyna says I think we can still win this one and Kacey agrees. We just hafta show more aggression !! Argggg!!

Hahahaha then all the girls start laughing and that peaks all the boys interest, what are they laughing about says Pookie.

Everyone rests up before continuing the next half of the volleyball game, boys versus girls.

  Hey Cookie,
Angel Sally says I'm glad your here with me watching the game. :)

Well it's a sunny hot day of 81 degrees here in Hawaii.

Both teams are getting ready and start stretching and warming up for their game play and eyeing up the other team.

Kacey puts her wings to her eyes and then points to the boys team as if to say I've got my eye on you! Hehehehe

Mom says the game will end at 5 no matter who wins okay?

When I blow the whistle it's time, either a juice break or lunch break but two short whistles means the game is over. Both teams agree, good.

Pookie calls heads before Laka gets to say anything.

The coin falls and it's tails! Yay!! The girls team serves first.

Chyna serves the ball and it goes over to Gus who's in the middle and bumps it over to Pookie who sets it up for Chipper and he spikes it over to the dead spot and all the girls scramble to get it but unable to. Yay the guys all high four Chipper, way to go buddy!!

Kiddo is up serving and it goes over to Cori who bumps it up to Little Angel who sets it up for Laka and she spikes it over and Raffi dives into the sand for a save and hits it up to Dixie who volleys it over to BooBoo who bumps it up to Kacey who hits it over and lands by Mikey who bumps it over to Pookie who tries to spike it over but it hits the net.

Yay!! The girls team scream. Now it's Sugars turn to serve and she hits it so effortlessly over to Mario who bumps it up to Willie who sets it up for Kiddo who spikes it over and Laka dives in the sand to get the ball but Kiddos fast spike ball was too fast for her and sand flew all over as she dived for it.

Now Chipper serves and it goes over to Kacey who bumps it up to BooBoo who spikes it over to Gus and he dives in the sand and barely able to save the ball. Kiddo runs and bumps the ball back into play and Peepers volleys it over to Cori who bumps it up to Chyna who sets it up for Sugar and she spikes it over and lands in the dead spot. While all the boys try to dive for the ball they all end up in a dust of sand clouds with sand flying all over.

Yay Sugar!! All the girls yell and high four each other, good one !! :)

Now Cori serves and it goes over to Raffi and he bumps it up to Mikey who sets it up for Dixie who spikes it over to Little Angel who hits it but it goes out of bounds. Awwww the girls sigh.

Yay Dixie!! The boys all high four each other, good going Dixie!!

Mikey serves and it goes over to Kacey and she bumps it up to BooBoo who sets it up for Little Angel who spikes it over to the dead spot and all the boys rush to get up but end up in a cloud of dust. Yay Little Angel!! They all high four each other and she says in your face boys!

They hear the whistle and its a juice break and about time says Pookie as he's been sweatin' bullets out there.

They all run to the tent for some cold refreshing juice. Mom says there's pineapple, guava, lilikoi, orange, grape, apple and grapefruit juice so help yourself.

Come visit me, Angel Sallykins gives thanks to all her friends :), Pookie says Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie !! Yay & Laka is in the Kissing Booth ! Happy Gobble Gobbl.

  Hey There, Cookie!
It seems things are settling down around here since Mom last talked with Nanny & Aunt Kaylene. Mom has stopped rushing around & she hasn’t been packing her suitcase anymore. Once again, the wonderful scents & aromas have been wafting through the house, making me hungry! Mom has made a pumpkin pie & she tried a new recipe for Pumpkin Butterscotch Cake. It made a big pound cake & I asked to “try” until I was blue in the face & still Mom ignored my pleas! Hmphf! I’m hurt by her stinginess!

Since Mom has calmed down, I have been receiving my veggie & fruit portions with some nice toppings on them again. She has this “thing” that I like & it smells really good but one disturbing “thing” about it, is that it looks like a ninja death star!! Now, it does have these seeds in it that smell wonderful & taste better than they smell! I have decided to take those & keep them for later sharpening & using them for those asian throwing stars. I will have to practice because I can throw a knife fairly well but these…their weight distribution is much different than a heavy knife. It will take some getting used to for sure! Mom has been telling me the name of this treat is “anise” & I will repeat to her, “NICE” & bob my head up & down to show her I understand & that I like it very much. She doesn’t know I’m storing the stars in my corner piñata where I stuff all my “secret stuff” inside there! These will be housed there for later!

Lately, I’ve been exercising & toughening up for the football game Saturday! I have been running, sit-ups, chin-ups, & weight pressing using CocoPuff. She gets a little bit sick from the up & down motion but she’s been a real sport about it. I also have been running the tire course & keep messing up with my left side of my left foot, those nails grow faster than all the rest & make me stumble. I will have to show Mom my predicament so she can file them down for me. It will be a greyt time getting to play with everybirdy Saturday. Hope you have a greyt Thanksgiving Day! Give a hug to your good Momma for me! Hugs, SamIAm

  Hi Cookie,

How are you, Buddy? It's Apache. Just wanted to stop by and wish you, your Mom & Dad a Happy Thanksgiving. Mom is going to one of her Brother's, Sister In Law & Family. She loves going there because her Sister In Law is an excellent cook but she wishes she wasn't because Mom eats "Too" much LOL! They only have "10" usually with their Family, my Mom, her Parents & Jacqui's Parents. Years ago, Mom's Stepmom would have anywhere between 20 - 25 people!! But now they are all married and go to their In Laws. Enjoy your little Baby Boy coming. Don't bite him "Too" hard or you'll be in big trouble LOL! Here's a vote for you, Cookie. Bye for now.

  Hello Cookie~
I hope you are having a great day! We got to talk to dad this morning. He is in Iowa now and it's snowing there! He is at a truck stop and is going to stay there for the day. Truck drivers are only allowed to drive a certain amount of hours a day and if dad is on a road where there is an accident and he gets stuck, he will run out of hours. If he takes a break right now he gains more hours and won't have to worry about running out. He's on his way to Oklahoma. He actually told mom that the snow looked pretty! Dad usually hates snow!
We are getting things ready for mom to start her workweek tonight and for Ian who starts his tomorrow. Hopefully Black Friday won't be too crazy. Mom just hopes everyone has a good time.
I hope your Thanksgiving is just perfect! I am thankful for your friendship and know how very blessed I am to have found such excellent friends here on the BC!

You are sure a good watchbird! Wow, noticing everything out that window is good.
We all want to wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving in case we don't get online tomorrow. Mom is cooking and the bird is big, so we have to get up early to supervise.
It was supposed to flurry today, but it's been snowing since 9AM. There's no sign of a let up either. We are hoping everyone who is traveling this holiday gets to a destination safely.
Mom got her nails done this morning, and got her new driver's license. She kept looking outside while she was at the nail salon, hoping that the snow would stop, but no such luck.
Now that she's home, once she's done serving as our typist, she will bake pies, get the cranberry sauce ready, and do other little things so tomorrow goes smoothly. We are only having 10 people here, but it's still a chore to make sure all goes well. I hope you are having a good day, getting to taste test, or at least supervise, all the cooking that's going on. Make sure to get lots of scritches and cuddles today, too. Hugs, Falco

It's Blue and Jewel.
Mom and dad will be going to mom's sister's house for Thanksgiving.
Mom and dad were up and gone early yesterday. First they went to the Magnolia Bird Farm for our food. On the way there, their friend Bob called and they set up a time for dinner. Then mom and dad went to free movie day and saw "Dolphin Tale 2". It was a true story about an aquarium in Florida and how two dolphins got together. Great movie! Then they met Bob at home and decided to try Golden Corral again. this time they walked right in and were seated. As before, the food was great. By the time they got home it was time to tuck us in for the night.
Today will be clear, with a high of 86 and a low of 52. Mom and dad will be working on food for Thanksgiving. Mom's mom is coming over to use our kitchen to fix Thanksgiving food, also. Nothing in her kitchen works. Please don't get dad started on that subject.
Hope your day is fun.
Blue and Jewel.

  Hi, Cookie
Maybe the weather geeks will be wrong and the snow will be less than those 8 inches. Sounds like too much either way. We have rain on the way but not supposed to arrive until late Fri so Thanksgiving travel around here should be fine. Think schools should just call it a day since not worth struggling in the cold for a half day, right?

We had our Thanksgiving feast last night. Mom made it all but dad helped by buying the new roaster (that the turkey baked in) and the new cutting board (that the turkey was carved on). Lots of leftovers so can make sandwiches, soup and mom'll find the recipe to make the turkey ring dad wants. Something his mom would make.

Mom has the midnight to eight shift tonight. Lots of ads to put up for tomorrow's 5pm opening and not closing until Fri at 11pm! Skinsis has to work daytime on Thanksgiving. Guess people still need their coffee fix.

Keep warm, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

I'm glad your here today. Kevin wants to train us and play ambush games...What fun !!!
The party was awesome. We had lot's of fun. It looks like we are on the same football team yesssssss !!!
Kevin was a football varsity star when he was in high school. He was the best offensive line man in the history of Norco high. He was a first string starter.
Kevin got offered scholorship's from 4 different universities and they all said he was most likely to succeed in pro football.
He decided to sign up in the army to fight and protect all of us...
Let's see if Kevin will give us some pointers today.
Kevin's making us breakfast today so we don't have to cook Yipeeeeee !!!

  Oh my sweet Cookie,
Of course I'll check in on Aunt Mary. That sure is a lot of snow coming down.

If I'm not back soon that means I'm staying with Aunt Mary to keep her company and watch over her, okay?

So I may not see you till after the volleyball game, hope that's okay.

I'll try to get back as soon as I can tho, as I want to see you play. :)

Angel Sally says you got some hugs and kisses you want me to pass on to your mom?

Well you'd better lay it on me before I leave.

Mom says its a 9 and a half hour plus plane ride to NY, but she's not sure which airport is closes to your mom house.

Can you have her let you know and then you can let me know and then I'll let my mom know, okay ?

Mom was looking at the flights RT to NY from Hawaii and its cheaper to go there direct than Charlotte. So maybe moms plans will have a detour it in. ;)

Okay I'm off to NY to see your mom as its a long long flight.

See you back soon sweetie!

Love & hugs from above,

Your forever Angel Sallykins

Aunt Debi plays with just me. And we get to meet RIO this trip.

I'm standing here before you, because I'm not behind you.

I know you've all heard it before, but I just had to let you know that our second favorite bird show is this Sunday, over in Plant City, also known as the Strawberry Capital of the world.

This is the show that's held outdoors, under a gazillion old oak trees on 4-5 acres. Out in the middle of no where. But it is by far well worth the drive, and we know good stuff will be coming our way. Mom said it's time for a new cage for me, so I might get a BIG present. Then we have to wait until January for our next show over in Orlando, near Goofy World.

I sure missed every birdie too! This was so wrong of the BC to not let me visit with you!!!!
Well my mom is baking on Wednesday. I told her that I would help. I saw the turkey in the fridge. Dad said it was thawing out ... how strange is that? Poultry is weird but tastes good.
WOW! You are sure a good watchbird! I just watch the raccoons when they come on the patio. I guess it's cause I see them a lot. I do that for the fox too. I sure love to watch the chippies run around. they are so funny.
This morning I woke to see the winter wonderland. Everything was white with lots of snow for dad to plow again ... hehehe. We got another 9 inches over night. Along with the cold, we will have daily snow starting on Thanksgiving morning. I have 2 new snow pics up for those who like it. I think I'll just go back to my perch for the day under the extra blankets.

Today mom was home all day with me since the parronts went to the grocery store last night. Mom bought all she needed (and more) for Thanksgiving. Today she was chopping and dicing and every once in a while I would fly over to watch. Just when she would be really busy I would leave and throw the nuts out of the bowl on the coffee table though. That kept her busy too and after awhile she quit picking them up. She said she was glad there wasn’t many in the bowl and the bowl was small. Doesn’t matter cause I sure cant get those walnuts open no matter how hard I try! “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole stair case.“ Dropping a vote in your basket.

  Hi Cookie
Well, happy to report that Mom got back from driving her friend down to her disability hearing in time to blog, although it didn't go well. That darned judge sent her back for another doctor's visit after telling her she should try telemarketing! How rude! And he was late too. She and Mom had to wait an hour for him, then they got stuck in construction traffic on the way home. Mom's friend was not very happy.

At least it was still warm enough when Mom got home at 1 for us to share lunch and then go out for a sunbath at 1:30. I only got 30 minutes outside, but the vet said that is good for keeping my feathers healthy...and I do look amazing!

No biting today, and so far no cranky behavior at all. Mom's now got a pretty nasty bite from me on the back of each hand, so I had better cool it for a while. That first one is a week old and still looks awful. Who knew my beak was so sharp?

Susan and Riley Ann have joined the cheerleaders for the Milonga Bowl, and I forgot to announce our referees! They are C R Jake and RaneBeau; both are big boys who can stand up to anybirdy, even Jenny Lynn!

Hi Cookie,
Please forgive my long absence. Mommy has been especially busy. Skin sis from Denver visited last month, along with granddaughter and great-grand-daughter. Then skin sis from MN visited this month. Then Daddy was in the hospital again for a brief visit. Then Mommy has had lots of bird shows, especially this past three day weekend. It was the big Pet Expo at a big convention center. We have it every year and boy is it ever busy! Finnegan and Dolly went all three days. They met so many people! They were exhausted Sunday night. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that we're still here.

Daddy is back in the hospital. Mommy took him in yesterday afternoon with more bleeding. He’s been extremely nauseated for the past three days. Then yesterday he started having those awful cramps again; then the bleeding started. He’s having a fistula gram today, whatever that is. After that the doctor will make some kind of determination.

If I can't talk to you again before the big turkey day...Mommy and I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Lots of Love and Big Hugs, Little Miss Lucy♥

Come visit me, Mr. Finnegan - I'm thankful for my BC friends., Daisy - R.I.P. - BOTW 9/17-9/23/07 & Miss Lucy Blue - I'm thankful for my BC friends..

  Hi Cookie
yesterday was quite a day for me. it was mom and dads 37anniversary and they were actually going to leave the house and go out for dinner. dad asked mom to trim my beak because he said the top was way to long and i couldn't eat properly with it. when mom took a look she saw that i had somehow broken the bottom half of my beak off and my top beak was about 3/4 of an inch longer. she wrapped me in a tea towel and got a good grip of my head and held my beak together and started filing away with the emery board. she moved fast because she doesn't want to hold me in that position for very long. at one point she noticed blood on her hand and thought maybe i had bitten her so she stopped to checked and make sure i was ok . here my top beak had started to bleed where she filed it down. you have to realize mom always is working on my beak and nails and so was very surprised to see what had happened in the first place and in order for my beak to fit properly she had to file it down to the right length which made it bleed. when mom saw the blood she became ill and thought she was going to vomit. she grabbed some flour and dipped my beak in it. then she uses a cloth and wiped the blood off, then she dipped my beak in flour again. at this point i suspected mom was putting batter on me to eat me for dinner. mom was so upset she told dad no way was she going out for dinner when my beak had been bleeding. what if it started bleeding again while they were gone. dad said ok and went out and brought dinner hone from a nice local italian restaurant. that night mom let me chase a live cricket around and i did and caught it and ate it all up. i was fairly quiet but that was because i was very mad at mom. today i m still mad at mom but acting a little better and eating with my beak. mom says with my beak so short i really look like a baby bird now

love Boo Boo

  Hi Cookster
Took me 4 tries to get here & this is the third time I tried to leave this blog. Dads 'putter keps sending him to some Twitter site.

I thought I got rid of that bugle for good. I was told the Hawaiians used drums to communicate!!

I put up the green house around the magic garden & turned on the heater & auto watering system. The donut bushes & the Skittle & Starburst trees were starting to look bad.

  `Ü´ Greetings & A Lovely Monday to You
Mr Cookie!

I do hope that your Saturday and Sunday were full of fun and productivity. I know in my case I had to relinquish Momma’s eggsclusive attention and assistance on my Campaign to be your December Bird of the Month to more pressing parrontal matters around our K Kritter Korral. (The portion of Sunday during which Momma was available to bring me to your page for a visit, the BirdChannel was not cooperating. You might say that their GPS was out of order! **TeeHee**)

You see, Momma and Daddy were informed that they could eggspect a visit from my Grandma from Idaho from later today, to last thru Thursday morning when they all gather at Daddy’s youngest brother’s home about an hour away from us for the first Family Celebration with everyone present since Momma and Daddy have known each other. Grandma was eager to be able to spend time here with Momma and Daddy, and all of us fids of course, before joining the rest of the family for a concurrent Celebration of Thanksgiving and her BirthDay on Thursday! Then she will remain with my Uncle and his family until she returns to her home in Idaho later in the week, while my other Uncle comes to pay us a visit over the long weekend.

So, all of this is to say that my visits may be a bit sporadic from now thru the end of the month, due to Grandma’s visit, the Holiday weekend with my Uncle visiting, and the upcoming Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl Game. I do apologize in advance for any visits I shall have to forego. But rest assured that I shall continue to do my utmost to bring you the maximum amount of FootBall information in the time we have left together.

And on that note, let us get straight to the information I’ve promised you next about the Offensive Squad on a FootBall team …

Let’s begin our eggsamination of the individual Positions on the Offensive Squad.

QuarterBack – The Player who usually receives the ball from the Center at the start of each play. He informs his TeamMates in the huddle of the play that will be run and then, after the Center snaps* the ball to him, either hands the ball to a Running Back or throws to a Receiver.

Center – The Player who hikes (or snaps) the ball to the QuarterBack at the start of each play. The term comes from the fact that this Player is flanked on either side by a Guard and a Tackle; he’s the “MiddleMan” (or Center) in a contingent of five Offensive LineMen or Blockers. He handles the ball on every play and also snaps the ball to the Punter and Holder.

Guard – There are two Guards on every play, and they line up on either side of the Offensive Center. The Guards protect the QuarterBack from an Inside Rusher; they block Defenders immediately across from them and also swing out, or pull**, and run toward either end [of the line] to block any Defender when the ball carrier runs wide°.

Come visit me, `Ü´ Ruby Coaches the Offense.

  Hi cookie
Just a quick note before mom turns off the puter. Dad was on all day and mom is sneaking a few minutes before HER bedtime.
Much of the snow is now gone. The freezing rain & sleet did not show up YAY. Tomorrow is suppose to be 50, that will feel good.
Mom took my collar off for a while today, but then chased me to put it back on. I cried. It didn't work, stuck with the collar.

  Hey Cookie!
Your g'pa should be fine. The Old Guy didn't start computing until he was 93, and he's managing. Every now and then he hits a key or button he shouldn't have, and everything disappears on him....then he has to get one of the Moms to help him get it back, but most of the time he does ok!

It is feeling wintery here lately. All the nice plants are dead...Mom has to go round and gather them up and put them in the trash, but she's waiting for a nice day to do it. Today would've been great (40 degrees), but they had to take the Old Guy to Senior Citizens in town. Tomorrow is cage cleaning it may not get done for awhile, what with Thanksgiving and all...My favorite room (the bathroom) is full of plants again. In addition to the coleus she rooted last year, Mom is trying to root geraniums this year..she had 3 colors that she liked, so she's gonna see if she can get away with not buying another batch next spring! Oh, and the Lemon trees are in bloom....boy do they smell good!

Yeah, electronic report cards are no fun at all. Those and electronic IEPs Mom thought were pretty stupid least some of the parents came in for meetings now and then, cuz all that electronic stuff didn't allow for much individualization really, no matter how much they pretended it did. But don't fret...soon it'll be time for wrapping presents and signing cards! You can really get into helping Mom then!

Hugs to ya!
