  Hi Raffi
Pizza crust is much better than a fry any day!
Peppy says thanks for the vote.
Mom won the first raffle at the pool this year; it's a gift basket of gift cards! She doesn't know what they are, since she thought she was just contributing. (She rarely wins anything.) But she'll pick it up today and we'll find out. The pool opens at 4 all this week, so mom will pretty much be home after she's done at the museum every day.
This morning's tour was in PA natural history with 7th grade kids. The hour went pretty quickly and the kids were more or less attentive. The group mom had was with a teacher so she was able to keep them focused somewhat. This time of year, though, the kids are done and are looking for summer fun.
Mom posted a pic of the nighthawk and the kestrel on Falco's page for everyone to see. These are a couple of the birds from the avian nursery that mom cleaned yesterday. Sorry they are sideways again, they were right side up when mom looked at them in the file.
I hope you are having a great day. It's beautiful here, lots of sunshine and heat. Get lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Raffikki
Not sure if teens actually wear tuxes to their proms. Mom didn't attend hers. We had fun looking for what to wear and a ballroom kinda background.

Some of mom's knitting patterns she's never made. Some only made once and others used a lot. Just depends on how things turn out. Just a bit tough to find specific ones when have so many.

Have a greyt day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Looking greyt!
Happy Memorial Day. Today started out very nice but after lunch we had a storm and the rain went on for a couple of hours. Then after dinner, we had scary t-storm lasting a couple of hours. The power went out several times. Mom is doing better today, she even went in the pool before dinner. We had some BBQ ribs for dinner and I even licked one ... that was brave of me.

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY. A DAY TO REMEMBER ALL OF OUR FALLEN VETERANS AND HOW BRAVELY THEY SACRIFICED THEIR LIFE FOR US. IT TURNED INTO A BEAUTIFUL SUNNY DAY WITH A SLIGHT BREEZE. MOM WENT TO THE CEMETARY TODAY AND PLANTED FLOWERS AT HER DAD AND BROTHERS GRAVE AND THEN STRAIGHTENED OUT THEIR FLAG POSTS SO THEIR FLAGS WERE WAVING PERFECTLY IN THE SLIGHT BREEZE. THEN A BEE STUNG MOM. MOM FIGURES IT WAS ONE OF HER BROTHERS STILL MANAGING TO TORTURE HER AFTER ALL THESE YEARS. LOL . WHEN MOM GOT HOME DAD WAS OUTSIDE WEEDING SO MOM HELPED HIM AND THEY GOT A LOT OF BAGS FULL OF WEEDS. MOMS VERY TIRED TONIGHT.

LAST NIGHT MOM FORGOT TO UNPLUG HER PUMP FOR HER FOUNTAIN AND RACCOONS OR SOMETHING GOT INTO IT AND EMPTIED MOST OF THE WATER OUT OF IT. THERE WAS STILL ENOUGH WATER TO KEEP THE PUMP FROM BURNING OUT. I BET THEY HAD A GOOD TIME SPLASHING IN IT

HOPE YOU HAD A WONDERFUL DAY.

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY TO YOU AND YOUR SWEET MOM AND DADDY!
My Mom has done that several times BBQ'd in the rain and she's the one who got soaked grilling while everyone else sits under the umbrella staying dry on the deck waiting for the food!
This morning was a dark,dismal,dreary,dull pouring rain morning.The highs for the day will be 69 the lows of 60 and right now its 65 and freezing.Mom couldn't stand being so cold and she put the heat box back on to chase the chill from the house.Mom got dad off to work this morning and it was lightly raining when he left.All the yellow pollen was in puddles all over our driveway.A half hour later my dad called to tell Mom that they cancelled the parade and no one told my Dad and his crew until after they had half of the barricades set up for the parade.So he and his crew took what they had already put up taken down and he came home.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages and fed us our bean mix and swept our room.Then she made rice krispie treats,apple pie cookies and Macadamia white chocolate cookies.After she cleaned up from that,she did a few chores that she didn't get to yesterday.Other than it being a dark,sleepy kind of a pouring rainy day here,there's nothing exciting or interesting going on.We're just happy that both Mom and dad are here with us today.Its a good thing we had our BBQ yesterday and got to enjoy being outside all day as it looks like today isn't going to be happening any time soon for that!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for my sweet Buddy!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hello Raffi~
I hope you are having a lovely Memorial Day. It's very pretty here today. Mom took McKenzie for a nice long walk this morning. They ran into Bailey the Malamute. McKenzie always gets down on the ground with any dog she meets but today she started belly crawling towards Bailey. Bailey's mom said McKenzie was doing the military crawl!hahahahaha Bailey is very sweet and very calm. Maybe one day McKenzie will get the calm part down!
Mom thought that if she took McKenzie for a nice long walk she could wear her out a bit and have a quieter morning. Didn't work!hahahahaha
Mom is getting stuff ready to take to Goodwill. She has been putting things in boxes for weeks as she cleans out closets and drawers and now it's time to get the stuff out of the house!
Enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Raffi
Mom shared a curly fry with us, big deal!
Peppy says thanks for the vote.
Happy Memorial Day to all!
Yesterday was a washout at the pool, it rained nearly all afternoon. Mom did go to dinner with her daughter, though, and had a good time. Mom's granddaughter Lena called, too, and they have plans for next Sunday. Guess what? Lena is still willing to cut mom's hair! So mom will drive down there on Sunday to visit and get a haircut in the afternoon.
Today mom cleaned and fed in the avian nursery. There is a big variety of birds in there now, including bluebirds, those cute downy woodpeckers (who are in a fledgling cage now), a pileated woodpecker, a baby kestrel, a nighthawk, some ducklings, and the usual assortment of baby songbirds, sparrows, and pigeons. It's getting very crowded in there! Mom got all the cages done except for the little crow, and that was because, since she had the 30 minute timer, she just ran out of time. The thirty minute timer was for 2 incubators today, which means about 40 baby birds all needing cleaned and fed every half hour. That takes a lot of time!
After the center, mom came home, changed, and went to the pool, where she jumped into the water just to cool off a little before she even set up her chair. She stayed at the pool for about 3 hours, and now that she's showered and dressed, she's ours for the rest of the day. No picnics this year, unfortunately, but that's okay. Mom bought a chicken wrap at the pool to eat for dinner tonight, so she still doesn't have to cook.
I hope you are having a wonderful Memorial Day celebration today, maybe attending a parade, or giving thanks to our vets in some other way. Get lots of attention for yourself, too! Hugs, Willie

  This Memorial Day
let's remember all of those who served. We thank you.

Well, it is supposed to hit 76 here today, although not until about 1PM which is when I will get my sunbath.
Then the temps will be climbing fast until by Friday we will be in the 90s. That means morning sunbaths, which is when I start giving Mom a hard time about getting into the carrier again. Since she now has worked out several methods for getting me in there, I suppose my tricky ways won't be working so well.

Becky emailed Mom last night, and Gold's decided to waive her 2 weeks notice and let her go. She wasn't surprised, because they don't want her to take her clients with her. They don't know she is going private part time to supplement her Physical Therapy job, but they didn't want to take any chances. Since she already set things up with the clients she wants to keep, like Mom, too bad for them. Mom still has 5 sessions left, but Becky has talked to Talyah about Mom's issues so things will work out just fine with her for those sessions.

Meanwhile as soon as Mom is done blogging we will share either a roast beef sandwich or more enchilada pie for lunch then go outside. Sounds like a fine afternoon to me.

Today is the last day to enter the Prom Pic Contest, so if you want in on the Prom Royal Court you had better get your pic ready to go.

Thanks for liking our prom pic. Hopefully more ladies enter as would think so many more creative and pretty dresses out there than suits and tuxes for us guys.

Nice to have an easy knitting pattern and can use various colors to create different looks. Even though our mom has a lot of washcloth patterns always checking out new ones.

No working late for mom. Today the store actually closes early so those that work the nights will be happy to get off before 10pm.

Continues warm for us. Not sure if more rain will arrive.

This morning was a bright sunny morning to start off with,the highs of 73 the lows of 61 and right now at 6:30pm its 62 and freezing out there.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and gave us our bean mix,then she got dad's breakfast of English muffins and peanut butter and coffee.She made dad his sandwiches for the workweek and then collected the sheets and other laundry that didn't get done yesterday and put that in the washer.When she came back upstairs,skin sis was in the driveway.She dropped off Peepers and Celine and her very full basket of laundry.She left to go to work and as soon as she left skin bro pulled in the driveway.He came and played with Candida while Mom ran around getting things ready for a BBQ.This was not planned on Mom's part but the skin sibs idea,Mom had two hamburgers,a chicken breast and a package of hot dogs.Mom had talked to Nana earlier and Nana sent over some hamburger meat,which Mom made into hamburgers,and some small ready made hamburgers she made herself along with a big pieced of chicken breast.Mom found some ground chicken in the freezer and made a big chicken burger out of that.Then skin sis called Mom and told her she had some jalapeño hamburgers she was going to buy and bring home along with some salted caramel frozen yogurt and cookies'n'cream ice cream.Mom got her laundry all hung out on the line and then came back out to the deck,our dad got all the deck furniture out and the grill all ready to go when skin sis came home from work,Mom peeled and sliced a full bag of apples and made apple crisp for dessert,while that was in the oven she ran back down cellar and put in skin sis's wash.Mom took all of us out on the deck to enjoy the sunshine and to get a shower and we were out there all afternoon.It really wasn't that warm here today,not like yesterday.Mom got all the condiments out on the tray and then made a salad(which she forgot to bring out and shucked the corn on the cob and got that in the pain to pre boil for the grill.While that was going she ran back down cellar and got skin sis's laundry and dad brought that out back for Mom and Mom hung all that out on the line.That's three loads of laundry Mom did all weekend and got out on the line.Then skin sis came home from work and Mom worked the grill and BBQ'd all the meat and hot dogs and served everyone.After everyone ate Mom collected stuff to bring back in and got that all washed and put away and then served the apple crisp with the ice cream and frozen yogurt that skin sis brought.As soon as they were all done eating Mom again brought everything back in the house and washed up and cleaned stuff and then ran out back while the skin sibs and dad relaxed and dad came with Mom to help her with the sheets and to bring in the baskets of laundry.Mom then folded both her own laundry and skin sis's laundry.The

Nothing exciting going on here. Merlin and McKenzie are taking a nap so I have a few minute of peace and quiet! Mom has been working on training McKenzie to stay away from Merlin but he comes over to her so he is not helping at all. He wants mom to pick him up and let him sit on her lap. When mom does that McKenzie figures she should sit on moms lap too! She is not a lap dog size anymore so it can be painful for mom! I just sit in my play cage watching the whole thing and thinking to myself that mom should have stuck to feathered pets only!hahahahahahaha

Well, I may or may not get outside for a sunbath today. It is only 69 degrees out there right now, with a forecast high of 71. Mom thinks it might be warm enough around 2PM, but she just checked and it isn't there now.

Meanwhile the entire house smells so good with all the aromas from Dad's enchilada pie. And it hasn't even gone into the oven yet! Dad is making two of them, but he is baking one after the other because our oven is big enough to do them at the same time. That means the house will smell wonderful for a very long time. And that is definitely a good thing.

You sure do look dashing! What a great pic! Falco says hi, and she hopes you are having fun today. Mom didn't go out to dinner last night, but she did go buy take out.
Peppy thanks you for the vote.
Yesterday it was such a beautiful pool day. It was warm, sunny, and the water was wonderful. Mom didn't do any laps, but she did get in the water, which is a step in the right direction. Mom's sister was too tired to go, since they got home after 1 in the morning, but the other people mom knows there did show up, so she was able to chat and read. Those are the main reasons for going, haha.
Today mom will be there again, then later, her daughter will take her out to dinner. Mom's son in law has gone to Ohio to see his mother, and her daughter thought it would be good for the two of them to get together. Mom likes that idea, especially since she doesn't have to cook.
I hope you are having a pleasant spring day, with lots of sunshine and plenty of attention! Hugs, Willie

Love the prom pic. Ours is rather basic but at least we got one made.

Cozy afghans are the best on cold nights. So fun to knit up useful things that can share and give as gifts.

  Hi Raffi
i can't believe how good looking all you guys are on bird channel dressed in your tuxedos. WOW. i guess you will be taking your pig to prom. lol. i just wanted to say it. it sounds funny.

dad was pointing out to mom all the things that need to be weeded. mom says she is quite aware of the weeds and will get it done. it only looks nice for a few months and its great exercise so mom doesn't mind. its very hot right now so we can't sit outside and because of the weeding mom can't sit there with us.

our computer was really bad last night and the ball kept circling and circling and finally mom decided to just unplugged the computer and it took her 20 minutes just to get her computer to go to sleep before she unplugged it. it was pizap who caused all the problems because they told mom to disable her ad block and when mom did it frazzled her computer. they have more ads on pizap than they had on bird channel.

we hear the whippoorwills tonight. not too many but still hear a few mom was afraid they wouldn't come back with all the new housing development going on where they live. hopefully they are ok.

  Hi Raffikki
Greyt pic; now get over there and enter!!

I am having a nice Saturday. Sure, I lost Mom to her grocery run with Dad this morning, but she did bring me home sugar snap peas, new grapes and bananas. So I let it slide.

Then we had chile relleno for lunch. Dad brought it home from work, because his company had a retirement luncheon for the Pres of the company and it was catered by a local Mexican restaurant. He brought home four of them, so Mom and I shared one yesterday and one today, while Dad chowed down both of his for dinner last night. I was not sure what it was, but after a couple of tentative nibbles I dug in. Tasty stuff! And now he is working on his famous enchilada pie for the holiday weekend. It takes two days to make, so it will be ready tomorrow and there is enough to eat for two days as well. I love the stuff! Right now the whole house smells of roasted chilies...yum!

After lunch we went outside for a nice long sunbath. It was very quiet for a Saturday. No pedestrians to scream at, and my two little white doggie friends didn't come by either. I got bored after about 45 minutes and made it clear I was done, so we came inside.

  Hello Raffi~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been fun around here. It's fun because I live with a dopey dog and a dopey cat! They are pure entertainment for me!hehehehehe
Merlin decided to sit on the arm of the sofa right next to my play cage. It's far enough away that I can't get him and if he sits still I don't really pay any attention to him. McKenzie brought a toy over for him but he's not interested in that! She brought her new one over for him and he didn't even look at it! McKenzie got on the sofa a sat down right next to him and knocked him off!hahahahahaha She leaned over against him until he went down! He was hissing! Hopefully they will both go to take naps very soon!
Thanks for bringing Max and Pumbaa to the booth! Pippo and Mei Mei love them so much!
I hope you enjoy your day! Should you get bored, come on over. We can make some popcorn and watch the show!!!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Raffi
Peppino says thanks for the vote.
After mom walked the dogs this morning, she watered everything again. There were supposed to be showers last night, but they never materialized. Jeff brought over a huge bag of onions and mustard greens, so mom cooked that for him while she was cooking our bird food. He also brought over some sunflower seeds to plant. One of them is called Teddy Bear, and it's the cutest sunflower in the world! Mom hopes it grows here.
Today the pool opens, YAY! So mom has to pull out the bathing suits, towels, and cover ups, as well as the SPF 8 that she starts the year with. I know, 8 doesn't sound like much protection, but for mom it works. Her sister does a 16, and one of her friends at the pool has a 75, but that seems like overkill.
Anyway, mom will be at the pool today, then when she gets back and showered, if she's not going to dinner with her sister, she'll be ours for the evening. She isn't sure, since her sis just got back from the Alaskan cruise.
I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday, with sunshine, warm temps, and lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Raffikki
Know the toy store will definitely be busy for the w/e but not sure the baby store. The new baby ad will start on June 1st. In the interim there are some one day specials and think some 2-3 day ones. Tough to keep up with 'em all!

That is good to have more knitting afghans, scrubbies and washclothes. They are always useful and at least for the smaller items quick to finish.

Didn't get overly warm yesterday, whew! Maybe those 90s will stay away from us!

Have a greyt day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

Yes ! Soon as they finish eating the scatter, collecting up toys and games and floaties to take with them . . .

  Hi Raffi
Thanks for the congrats.
We won't be doing much this weekend as mom is sick and dad is getting a sore throat :(
Our weather for the next 8 days is 90 degrees and 75 at night with a chance of a little rain at night for a few days ... not bad.
Mom is sick, thanks to the kid on the plane coughing and sneezing on her for 4 1/2 hours! I'm wearing my nurse's scrubs and I'm on duty 24 hrs for my mom.
Hugs
Chyna

Come visit me, Derby Farms, Chyna & Scoober & Bailey ♥ RIP.
