I acquired Gabbie from my son's classmates parents who couldn't keep her anymore and I said that I would find a home for her and they said they only wanted me to keep her. That was fifteen years ago. At that time I had already been owned by a green cheek conure and a sun conure. My husband said yes and Gabbie was ours!.

She does not like her brother sun conure Kallie,because he always tries to attack her for no reason at all. And she can't stand getting her beak dremmeled down.

I get love all day long and I get to go out on the warm summer days in our stroller, I get homecooked meals warm in the winter and a cage to myself and playgym to stay out on all day long when mom is home. I love to snuggle under her shirt or clothes which I just love.

She gets up early in the a.m. and starts yelling "hello, Hello" and she won't poop in the cage at all..

If you yell hello loud enough you will get what you want..

  Hello My Dearest Gabbie~~
I had a pretty good day. Mom only had to go out to take Ian to work and then to pick him up. They got taco salads on the way home. I got some of the chips and they were yummy.
We worked on getting the paperwork all filed today. It's great to have it all put away. Mom has a file box but it turned out to be too small to put everything into. She really wanted to get rid of the file cabinet but she needs it so she is glad she didn't.
She has tonight and tomorrow night off and then it's back to work. She is not looking forward to that. She likes being home with us.
I am so glad to hear that your mom and Nana went out today and they will be ready for the storm. I sure hope your dad doesn't have to be gone a long time. I know your mom worries about him when he's out there! We will be saying some prayers that everyone is safe and that the storm is not bad.
We don't know what we will be doing tomorrow. Mom got the hall bathroom cleaned but she still needs to finish her bathroom. You know it's hard for her to be in there unless someone is here to watch McKenzie. I'm not allowed anywhere near the bathrooms when she is cleaning. She got the hallway cleaned so there isn't much else to get done except the bathroom.
It's about time for our story so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you!! I hope you like the story I found for us tonight!
Remember that I love you so very much my friend!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
It was a pretty good day! Ian did go with mom to take Jennifer to her dads. It was a boring drive which is good. It hasn't been bad weather wise here. We had some sprinkles today but it's clear tonight. It's going to be cold overnight though.
McKenzie does pretty well in the car. Ian sat in the back with her on the way down and she just slept on the way home.
Mom stayed home after she got home. We wanted to enjoy her rare Saturday night off! We had planned to just have a quiet evening but McKenzie has been wild all night. It's nearly bedtime for her so I can have my quiet time with mom very soon.
Mom doesn't know if she will have to go get Jennifer tomorrow or not. As of now she is still off until Tuesday night so it won't be a problem if she does.
I threw done more snacks for McKenzie today. While she was eating it I decided we both needed to have a bath! I think McKenzie really enjoyed it since she started barking when I dumped water on her! To make it up to her I let her have one of my rubber duckies to play with! It is keeping her occupied for a little while at least. She just about finished off the rawhide bone so mom threw the rest out. She will find her another one tomorrow. Wish she had one for tonight since we had planned to have a quiet evening and she has not stopped running yet! It is nearly bedtime for her so I am happy for that!
Mom has to finish up the bathroom when everyone is in bed. She won't take any of us in there when she cleans since she uses soft scrub and it has a strong smell. Don't know what we will get done tomorrow. Monday McKenzie has to the vet but that shouldn't take very long.
It's time to have our story so come perch with me sweetie! I can wait to spend time with you!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
I had a very nice hatchday. Mom got a slice of white cake for me and it was yummy. There is a lot left so the kids will probably finish it off for me. Mom had a nice time a dinner and brought home some tortillas for me!
Mom finally made it to Walmart today and of course she left the house without her list!! She only missed 2 things so she will pick them up tomorrow.
Jennifer wants to go visit her dad so mom will drive her down tomorrow. She will probably have to go pick her up on Sunday unless the dads friend comes over. I'll stay here and enjoy the quiet and mom will take McKenzie with her. I don't know if Ian will go with them or not. He is off tomorrow and might want to stay home and do nothing.
Ian is taking vacation at the end of the month because a college friend is coming in from Philadelphia. He usually comes to visit once a year so Ian will be going up to Seattle to visit him.
Mom bought McKenzie a rawhide bone today and she loved it. It kept her occupied for hours and I was really enjoying the silence! She is very tired now and ready to go to her crate.
Dad called and he was in New Mexico. Don't know where he is headed to but he is doing well!
It sounds like your mom had a horrible day! All that snow and no power and trying to keep Dixie and Candida warm! Oh it's just too much. I know she was worried about your dad out there too. I'm glad she and Nana waited to go on their errands. I know your mom drives very well but that leaves all the other people on the road to worry about. It's better just to wait.
It's time for our story so come perch with me!! I can not wait to spend some time with you and share the story!
Remember that I love you so very much my friend!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
You know spending time with you is one of the happiest times of my day! I love to chat with you and I love it even more when we get to perch together and listen to the goofy stories I find! It is one of my most favorite times of the day!
Today was no as productive as we wanted. Mom did get part of the oven cleaned. Since she never uses chemicals in the house it takes a bit longer to scrub. It really wasn't too dirty. The drip pans are! For some reason no one seems to be able to clean them up when they spill. Looks like mom will toss them and buy new ones again.
McKenzie was very active today and just wanted to play all day so mom had to chase her around and didn't get much done. She is sleeping right now so at least we can have our story in peace! She does very well at night with the crate. Mom just opens the door and in she goes!
Mom has another box of papers to go through. Not a big box but she wants to finish up all of the papers.
Mom never made it to Walmart today so she'll have to go tomorrow. She really needs some soaps to continue with the cleaning. Today Ian and Jennifer got off at nearly the same time so she didn't have time to stop and she doesn't want to drive down there twice and waste the gas.
It's time to listen to the story so come perch with me! I really do look forward to this time every single day!
Remember that I love you my friend, now and always!

It was a pretty good day. Mom was out for a while but brought home some tortilla for me! Ian took mom to Chipotles for lunch and saved me some tortilla! That was so nice of him! Mom made pancakes for dinner and Jennifer and Ian had pizza. I had some of each! Great night!hehehehehe
Mom got the stuff over to the Goodwill today. She cleaned out some papers also. She found tax returns that were over 30 years old! Ian said it was impressive that she had them that long. Mom said it was embarrassing to have not throw all this stuff out before! There were a lot of old papers in a file cabinet that mom wants to get rid of. It's all gone now but the cabinet is still here. Mom didn't have enough room in the car for it on this trip.
It's about time for our story so come perch with me!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
I had a pretty good day. Mom really thought that with being on vacation there would be more time to do things. Puppy duty is interfering with that!!! She was good for the most part but she still seems to get into trouble a lot. She was even barking a me! I know she was jealous since I have newspaper and she does not!
Mom used the rug cleaner in the hallway today and McKenzie was barking at it! Mom brought her over and showed her the machine to quiet her down. When mom was done McKenzie tried to chew on the machine!! She will chew on anything!
Dad sent mom a picture on FB of the truck stop where he found McKenzie. It looks like it is in the middle of nowhere!
Mom and I both pray that Anthony will get some rest and not be so sore! Having to do a very physical job takes some time getting use to! We sure hope he enjoys it too!
It's time for our story so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you and get to spend some time with you!

  Hello My Sweet Gabbie~~
It was a good day here. We finished up the dining room and the kitchen. Mom took lots of trash out and then loaded the car for the Goodwill. She will drop the stuff off when she picks Ian up tomorrow.
Ian and Jennifer both had to be to work early so mom got up and took them. I got to come out and have my toast early since everyone was up.
Mom picked Ian up and then went to Petco to get me food. They didn't have any so she went over to Petsmart and got me some there. She will order more online so she doesn't have to worry about Petco not having it. That conure and Indian Ring neck are still there. Mom feels bad for them having to stay in the store and not having a family yet.
Jennifer called as soon as they got home so mom went to get her. Mom did her taxes when she got home and got them filed. They decided to get Taco Bell for dinner and on the way home they got rear ended! Everyone is fine and the only damage was to moms Seahawks trailer hitch cover. It's a bit bent. The other guy was in a small car and has a bent license plate. They were in the left turn lane stopped and the guy did not stop. McKenzie was in the back seat and got very scared. She was trying to climb up on mom! Ian had to put her back into the back seat so that mom could get home. They were right outside the complex so it wasn't a far drive. McKenzie seems fine now. She was actually pretty good today. We still have the problem of her wanting to play with Merlin but maybe she will figure out that cats don't play well with others!!
It's time for our story so come perch with me! I found a story about a Groundhog since tomorrow is groundhogs day!!

I ha a pretty nice day. Mom is tried since she's been up all day but we are on vacation now so she can sleep tonight. Unfortunately she has to take Ian and Jennifer to work early tomorrow.
We didn't really do much today. We got the kitchen cleaned up some and mom got half of the bathroom cleaned!! She can finish it tomorrow. We have to jump in and get things done when McKenzie is napping. She still sleeps a lot during the day so that helps
We could not get on BC this morning. We just go the circle thing over and over. Mom tried it over and over but it was well afternoon before we got one. It seems to be okay now so that is good!
It's nearly time for our story so come on and perch with me!

I am so sorry I didn't get to leave a proper note yesterday. It was a busy day and mom did not have much time to get any of my notes done. McKenzie has a very short attention span and mom will get a sentence typed and then McKenzie is getting into something! She was actually pretty good this morning but when mom let Merlin out it was crazy again. Merlin ran under my play cage, which he never does, and was whacking at her from under there. I guess it's his way of playing but he has started going to place he never did before and I think he is just trying to tease her! They should both know by now that my play cage is mine and I don't share it with furry things!
We feel so out of it and don't know what is going on with everyone! We hope Shiloh got all better and that Anthony is doing well. How is Nana? Mom's friend is taking tonight off because it's her moms 93rd birthday and they are having a big party! Very cool!
Tonight is it for mom and then a whole week off! She is really looking forward to it since it's been a long time since she took more than 3 days off in a row! I'm looking forward to it also!
Mom actually saw Easter candy at Walmart!!!! You would think they would concentrate on the Valentine's candy and worry about Easter after it's done! Ian, of course, grabbed one of those chocolate cadbury eggs. They are pretty icky looking but he likes the caramel ones. I think we need to celebrate Chinese new year, Valentines Day, St. Patrick's Day and then we will think about Easter!
I have a cute story for us today so come perch with me! I can not wait to spend time with you! I just hope your family is not tired of me hanging out all the time!hehehehehehe

I am happy to see that the note I left last night is there! I really wasn't sure. We logged off a few times and every time I logged back on it was a different date none of which were the correct date! Crazy! It seems to be okay today.
Lots more cleaning today and laundry too. Mom is going back to work tonight and really wanted to get more done but it didn't happen.
I am bored to tears and want to go into the bedroom but mom has to wait for someone else to be here to take care of McKenzie. She has been pretty rowdy this afternoon! Mom is really tired and doesn't want to have to keep jumping up and running after her but she has no choice! She seems to want to get into everything!
I'm heading over to Dixie's to try to get the story posted before mom has to go pick up Jennifer!! She'll be sleeping after that so I probably won't get a chance to do it tonight!
Come perch with me sweetie! I can't wait to spend some time with you!

I sure hope you get this note! The BC is back a few days for some reason. I left the story on Dixie's page and I am not even sure it's there! It's done this before aqnd I hope it doesn't last for long again!
We did lots of cleaning today. It felt good to actually get things done for a change. McKenzie was rowdy this morning but was pretty good this afternoon. She was so funny watching mom clean out the cabinets and grabbed the lid to a canister. It's stainless steel and she was dragging it around like it was a toy! I guess everything is a toy to her!
Come on over and listen to the story! I can not wait to spend some time with you!

  Hello My Sweet Gabbie~~
Here I am! Mom is off tonight so I have more time to get a few notes done. I really am so sorry everything has been so erratic lately. In the afternoon McKenzie peed on moms quilt so mom had to wash it. By the time she got it all cleaned up it was time to pick up Jennifer. Mom only got 3 hours of sleep after that.
McKenzie is sleepy tonight so she is not being crazy at the moment. It's almost dinnertime for her and then mom will take her for a walk. Then we will all get some sleep! Mom has been up since last night and is ready to get some sleep.
We got a few chores done today and mom watched a few episodes of Glee. She has been trying to watch it for months but there never seems to be enough time to watch it. They have all 6 seasons on Netflix and we enjoy the music. Some of the stories are pretty silly but it's good.
We don't have any plans for our weekend yet. There is plenty to get done but some of the chores mom will need to someone to watch McKenzie while she does them. Ian is off tomorrow so he will help.
Not much else going on around here. It was rainy all day but not really bad. It got up into the 50's also so it felt nice.
When mom goes back to work she will only have 3 days to work and then have a whole week off. It's going to be so nice.
We found a few ants in the bedroom yesterday. Merlin's food was in there. Mom cleaned it all up and vacuumed and they did not come back. Sometimes when it is very wet outside a few will show up. Hopefully they are gone now and won't come back!
Come perch with my sweetie! I can not wait to spend some time with you! It is one of my most favorite times of the day!!

Mom had to go down and pick Jennifer up this morning. It's a pain really but it's important to Jennifer to spend time with her dad. It took up most of the morning unfortunately. McKenzie has been trying to rip up the computer chair and it's driving mom crazy. Mom moved it out of the way and brought a dining room chair out to use. McKenzie is leaving it alone for now. She has gone off to look out the window for a while. She doesn't take her usual nap when she goes for a long ride and her nap time is when I can get my notes out! It's been a rough day for me!hehehehehe
Not really much going on around here except for puppy duty. Ian is still at work and mom is not sure what time he gets off. She really hopes it's soon because she is really tired and would love to go to bed! She is so boring!
I have had some problems updating the calendar page lately. I updated the BOTD list yesterday but it didn't update! I think I have it correct now. Very strange and I never know if it's me or the BC!
I have a story for us so come perch with me! I can't wait to see you and I can't think of a better way to spend the afternoon then visiting with you!

It was not such a bad day. I did get some peace and quiet while mom was gone. McKenzie is worn out finally and taking a nap. She was really rowdy when they got home from taking Jennifer to her dads house. Mom said it was because she had been in the car for over 2 hours.
They got lots of good stuff at the store so I'm happy about that. This store has a huge bulk food department and mom just loves it. The items are very inexpensive and mom can buy what she needs. She got a small bag of celery seeds for 19 cents. Probably about 2 tablespoons worth. She makes this stuff with cucumbers and white onions and needs celery seed for it but didn't want to buy a big bottle of it. She hates throwing food out. The celery seed will last for the rest of the year.
Her clothes are nearly dried and then she will put McKenzie quilt in the dryer and head off to bed! Only one more week and she will have an entire week off! I can't wait!
I will be reading our story at the usual time tonight but not posting it until tomorrow. I'm staying at your house this weekend so why don't you come over and hang out with us! We are having snacks and watching TV!! I would love to spend the time with you too!

I had a pretty nice day. It started out so sunny and pretty. Then mom went to pick Ian up and stop by Walmart. By the time she came out of Walmart is was pouring down rain!hehehehe She got drenched just walking to the car! It stopped as soon as they got home!!
It was nice this morning though so she took McKenzie on a walk. She was very bouncy this morning and the walk helps to calm her down. She is hysterical when she runs through the house and throws her toys up in the air!
We worked on the kitchen today and got some laundry done. Mom had to take Jennifer down to her dad's house tomorrow so we will finish up the laundry when they get back.
Tonight we are watching Top Chef with Jennifer. I don't really like it very much because some of these people are mean and nasty! Food should be about happy and sharing time with the people you love not nastiness!
It's time for our story so come perch with me sweetie!!

It was a pretty good day! Poor mom has been up all most all day again. She did get to rest on the sofa for about an hour but had to keep McKenzie on the leash. I was very busy ripping up newspaper and McKenzie wanted to help. I wanted to bite her!hehehehehe MOm kept her on the leash for a long time today to keep her out of trouble. They played for a while but McKenzie keeps trying to chew under the computer chair desk. Mom has to haul her off every few minutes and give her a toy to play with. She will come right back too it as soon as she gets bored with the toy!
Thank goodness it's our weekend! Don't know what we are going to do but there are tons of chores to get done so we are not short of work!
It rained up here most of the day. It's in the 40's so it's not bad at all. We did not hear from dad today so we are guessing he got over the mountain okay!

It was not such a bad day really! We still have lots of problems with you know who! She just won't leave the cat alone. She really wants him to play with her but he doesn't play well with others!! Mom separates them and we get a little peace and quite. Merlin is not totally blameless since he teases her sometime too!
Dad finally got a load and hit the road. Last night they gave him a load to Spokane but the mountain pass was closed so they cancelled it. This morning he was suppose to pick up a trailer coming down from Canada but the trailer was late so they cancelled that one too. He finally got a load out to Utah this afternoon.
We have been thinking about Dixie all day long! We hope the vet visit went well and that he will be all well very soon. I really do worry about him so much.
It's finally mom's Friday and she is so happy! She is so tired!hehehehehe We are up late today because I just didn't want to miss another story time! I have a cute one today so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you!!

Gloomy day but I can't complain since so many places are having very cold temps.
Mom is getting some laundry done and we just had snack time. I had my apple and a couple of almonds, Merlin had some of the Greenie treats and McKenzie had a Blue Dog bakery cookie. Mom says it's like a daycare around here!!
McKenzie was in a very chewy mood this morning and tried to chew on the legs of the coffee table. Mom redirected her to a toy but that didn't last long. She then tried to chew the lever on the bottom of the computer desk chair! She is tenacious! Right now she is trying to kill her stuffed reindeer toy.
Mom has to run over to the bank before she picks Ian up so she it taking McKenzie with her. Dad doesn't have to leave until much later so he'll be around to keep an eye on her so that maybe mom can get some sleep later! Yesterday McKezie started barking and dad didn't stop her so of course it woke mom up. Mom told him we can't let her get use to barking all the time!
I know you and Kallie are up there celebrating his hatchday! I hope you both know how much I love you both!!
I'll find a story for us very soon. I will be looking forward to spending some time with you!

It was another day of chasing you know who around! She did take a bit of a nap this morning. Mom thought maybe she could get some rest while McKenzie was sleeping but dad called right then. He is running late and will be here tomorrow. He will only be staying one day.
McKenzie will not leave Merlin. Right now she is jumping all over mom to try to get to him!
It's time for mom to put everyone to bed and get going to work!

It has been a boring day for me. Lots of cleaning going on. Even Ian is cleaning his room! He brought out a bunch of trash bags and mom told him he needed to help get them to the compactor. He and Jennifer get lots of stuff online so there are always boxes! Mom cut them down and taped them all together and got them over to the recycling dumpster. The rest of the trash got hauled to the compactor. Nothing left inside so that is great! Mom still needs to sweep the rug out on the balcony and get George and Gracie cleaned out. Then she'll go get gas in the car since it started dinging when they took the trash out!
I have a new toy in the night cage so that will keep me occupied while mom sleeps!
Dad is suppose to be home sometime tomorrow but we have not heard from him today and don't know if he is on time or what. Don't think he will stay very long since he just spent a week in Phoenix getting things done to the truck!
It is time to have our story so come and perch with me! I can not wait to spend some time with you!
Remember that I love you now and always my friend!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
I had a pretty nice day. I am missing all the playtime mom and I use to have but she tells me it won't be forever and that we can have more as McKenzie gets older. I try to understand but I do miss it! Mom still sits with me and we chat a lot while McKenzie is on the sofa with her trying to play with her! McKenzie has started to try to nip at mom and now we have to get her to stop that!!
Mom figured out from reading things on the internet that she is letting McKenzie stay out too long. She needs to let her take a walk after she goes pee. This morning it took 2 hours of mom going up and down the stairs until McKenzie finally went potty! It's going to take some time I guess.
We did manage to get some cleaning done today. Not as much as mom wanted but some at least. Mom got a lot of trash taken out and then when she picked up Ian they went to Walmart. We needed some food and it is close to where Ian works. They have pretty good prices on some things so mom goes by there every once in a while. Mom read today that Walmart is closing down over 200 stores and that means 160,000 people will be out of work! That is horrible. The keep saying how everything is getting better but I don't really think it is. There may be more jobs available but I think they are low paying jobs. Gas didn't get much cheaper up here either but at least in some places it is.
I have a fun story for us tonight so come perch with me! I will do my best to keep the stories coming! I think that most days I will have to do it in the afternoon before mom goes to bed!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
It was another one of those crazy days. Mom has been up all day and is so tired. I'm so very sorry I keep doing this! We have been working on a schedule for the puppy. If you keep her doing the same thing at the same time everyday it is suppose to help with the training. We shall see. Mom took her out 8 times over an hour and a half before she finally peed!!
Come perch with me my friend! I can not wait to see you and I want to spend some time chatting with you!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
I have been waiting all day to find out how Dixie is. I am praying all is well.
Mom had to go get McKenzie food and Merlin food too. Then she had to go get Ian and Jennifer some food! The traffic was a nightmare! It's nearly time for Jennifer to get off so mom will pick her up and then get some sleep before she has to go to work. Thankfully it's only 2 more nights til our weekend.
Mom stopped at Petco to get McKenzie's food and bought her some cookies from the cookie bar. She put them in the back of the car ~ it's an SUV so we don't have a trunk. She left McKenzie in the car while she went into Walmart and guess what she did! Yep! She climbed over the seat and ate all the cookies! She is sleeping right now and doesn't seem to be ill at all so we are hoping she won't get sick! There were only a dozen cookies and she missed one, so hopefully it won't make her sick! Mom feel like an idiot! There is a screen you can pull over the back and mom didn't do it! Usually McKenzie just goes to sleep on her quilt in the back seat but I guess she smelled the cookies! Mom is not going to give her much for dinner tonight!
We hope the trip to the vet went well and that your mom didn't run into traffic like my mom! Tuesdays are always so crowded for some reason. It was bad this morning too. Mom didn't bother with the freeway because it was already stopped down in town so she just took the streets. Takes longer but if you are sitting there not driving and wasting all your gas, it doesn't really matter if it takes longer!
I hope I can get the story posted tonight but it will depend on how the puppy is doing when mom gets up. Mom takes her for a walk before she leaves to wear her out so she'll sleep all night. So far it's working!
If I post the story or not, come perch with me! I have to tell you all about the Indian Ring Neck mom saw at Petco! Mom just loves Indian Ring Necks and this one was pure white!!
Remember that I love you now and always my friend!

  Hello My Dear Gabbie~
I have been worried about Dixie all day and am praying he is okay. It's very hard when we birds get older and start to have problems!
Not much going on today thankfully. Mom took Jennifer to work a little while ago and is going to pick Ian up soon. She has taken McKenzie out for a few walks. The neighbors all think she is so cute and come over to pet her. She is very friendly with everyone but it does make it hard to get her to concentrate on why she is out there. She is very submissive with other dogs for some reason. Even the little toy poodles across the way and she is bigger than both of them put together! It may just be that she had a bad experience with another dog at some point or that she is still a puppy.
Mom and I are still working on the storage room. We didn't get a lot done today because moms sister called and she can talk for a long time. Mom got more boxes to fill up for the Goodwill. Hopefully we can get everything organized very soon. Mom really hates having to hunt for things and would like everything to be easy to find!
I will see you at storytime! I can not wait to spend some time with you and read a fun story together!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~~
It was another crazy day around here. Mom took Jennifer down to her dads house. They stopped at the market on the way there since Jennifer's dad rarely has much food in the house. Jennifer bought some food and mom and Ian picked up a few things also. Mom found Christmas wrap for 35 cents a roll so she got 3 of them. She usually doesn't like to store it but for 35 cents she will!
I am going to have to post the story in the morning. Mom still has to take McKenzie for a walk and then tuck me and Merlin in. Since Jennifer is gone Ian will put the puppy to bed. She has been running around for the last 3 hours so she should be pretty tired! She can open the crate so they are having to tie it closed! She is a smart girl!
I am sorry about posting the story late so much. We hope that McKenzie gets into the routine very soon and life will be calmer around here!
Come perch with me my friend! I can not wait to spend some time with you!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
It turned into such a busy day around here. When mom got home Jennifer was waiting for her to take her to work. She got called in early because someone called out sick. Then mom came home and fed Merlin and McKenzie and got my toast. McKenzie had to be at the vet at 10 am so there wasn't much time to hang out after that.
They were gone for an hour and a half. Mom just thought they were going to give McKenzie the booster but they did another exam and scrapped her chin to see if the mange is gone. It's not so she is one medicine for at least one more month. I think maybe dad didn't explain the whole story to mom or he didn't understand it. She has to go back in a month for the last booster and to check the mange.
McKenzie was pretty worn out by the time they got home so she took a nap. Mom was playing with me when the fire alarms went off. It was just testing but it startled me and I let out a big squak. McKenzie was scared and jumped up on the sofa. Mom calmed us both down and the testing did not last very long at all.
Mom had to pick Ian up shortly after that. The traffic light for the off ramp was broken and the traffic was backed up 2 miles on the freeway. Mom went down the side street but it's under construction so that took some time too.
Mom took a personal day tonight because there were things she wanted to get done! Nothing got done. Tomorrow she is going to drive Jennifer down to her dads house and then hopefully she can do some things around here. She has been up for over 24 hours now so it's time to get some sleep!
Come on over and perch with me and I'll read you a story! I can not wait to see you my friend!

  Hello My Dear Gabbie~
We are still in the midst of cleaning out the storage room. Dad has all sorts of junk in there and I do mean junk! Who needs 4 boxes of old wires and plugs???? Not mom!hehehehehehe She found plugs for things that have been gone for years!
Mom has to stop by the market later to get some bread. Only bread left in the house was the rye that Ian got for his lunches. It does not make good peanut butter toast so I had my apple first this morning.
McKenzie was sleeping in the dining room when a truck came by and put on his jake break! It makes a terrible noise and made her jump up and start barking! They are not suppose to use them in the city but they do all the time. Guess they never get caught so they keep doing it. I know she will get use to all the noises around here someday. I did and Merlin doesn't care anyway since he is a cat and thinks he is above it all!
Mom has to pick Ian up soon and then she can get some sleep! It's Thursday and the lady who runs the daycare will be picking her sister up from dialysis so we don't know when Jennifer will get off. Dinner will be ready and then mom will just go back to sleep. Jennifer will take care of McKenzie so mom doesn't have to leave her in her crate for too long. She does very well at night now. She has been spending a lot of time looking out the window today too!
I will see you very soon for story time. Don't want to wait until tonight just in case mom is running late again. She had to take the puppy for a walk and hopefully get her to go potty outside! She is very good in the mornings but not so good at night!
Come and perch with me my friend! I can not wait to spend some time with you!

  Hello My Sweet Gabbie~~
It was a pretty nice day. I did get play time so that made me happy. McKenzie is still being very stubborn about going outside but mom just keeps taking her out. Eventually she will figure it out. It seems that she knows what wee wee pads are for so whoever had her before must have trained her to those. If it was a truck driver, which mom thinks it was, he would have had them in the truck since you can't always stop even if the puppy had to go.
That pillow in the picture is actually McKenzie's. Merlin just sort of took it over. The throw is hers also. Merlin has his own but it's on the bed.
Mom took a lot of stuff down to the Goodwill store today. Then she and Ian took McKenzie to Petco. Ian gave us a gift card for Christmas so McKenzie got to pick out 2 new toys and mom got Merlin a new food bowl. McKenzie broke the old one.
McKenzie picked out 2 toys that were from Christmas and on clearance. Mom showed her a bunch of toys, but these 2 were the ones she wanted. She played with them as soon as she got home and has been dragging them around all night.
Mom saw a Golden Capped Conure at Petco. He was beautiful! He also cost $650 dollars! I told mom we don't need any more animals here!
Mom forgot to go to the library so she had to renew all the books online. She'll go tomorrow. Tonight we can read a book on the Kindle.
Mom started cleaning out the storage room today. Dad has boxes full of wires that mom is going to throw out. He saves all the boxes from computer parts also and they are not good for anything. He says he keeps them in case he needs to return something but all the computer stuff is more than a year old so it's time for the boxes to go! Ian went through some things and pulled out what he wanted to keep and then he and mom took the empty boxes to the trash compactor. At least it's a start and hopefully will not take very long to finish up. Mom's closet will be next! She had it cleaned but dad has shoved a lot of things in there so it's time to clean it again! Who knows? We may have to make another trip to the Goodwill store!
It is time to read a story so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you and spend some time with you!
Remember that I love you sweetie, now and always!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
It was another busy day with you know who! Who knew a little fur ball could take up so much time? She doesn't mean to do it really. Everything is new to her so she has to investigate every thing and get into everything too!
It was so stormy here today. Lots of fog too. Stayed sort of dark all day. We had the fireplace on for a long time so it was nice and cozy inside.
Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night so she is hoping to get some things done around the house. Lately it's just all about the puppy. It is getting better but it's slow going.
Dad called from Texas today. He is on his way to California now. He will be picking up a new truck there so he is looking forward to going.
It's about time for our story so please come perch with me. I can not wait to see you!
Remember that I love you now and always!

  Hello My Dearest Gabbie~~
I'm here!! Last night I got the vote in and then I just got a circle that kept going round and round. We logged out and tried again but the same thing happened! It happened this morning too but now everything seem to be okay!! I would never desert you!!
I'm never sure if there is something wrong with our computer or if it's BC!
McKenzie spent half an hour perched at the end of the sofa watching the kids wait for the school bus! At first she was barking at them but mom quieted her down. Then she sat until the Jr. High kids got on the bus and then waited to see the Grammar school kids get on the bus! The kids have been on winter break the entire time she has lived here so this was a first for her! Mom told her they come back in the afternoon so she can see them get off the bus!
She is barking at the vacuum even though mom showed it to her and let her sniff it. Mom may have to leave her in the car to vacuum!! She loves being in the car and mom has to pick her up to get her out! I really think she use to be with a truck driver since she loves going for rides.
Our snow did not last for long. It started about 11 am but by 3 am it had turned to rain. Still slushy out there so it's very slippery! Mom left a bit early last night just in case but it was fine. Mom has one more night to work and then we get our weekend!
Mom and Jennifer are going to stop at the Dollar Tree when mom takes her to work. Mom gets snacks there and hand soap too. They always have interesting things to look at there.
Jennifer had fun with her family yesterday. I gave Maddie a box with 156 crayons and holders and sharpener too! Jennifer said she dumped all the crayons on the floor because she wanted to look at them! Guess she liked them!
I'll be doing the story soon so come perch with me! I can't wait to spend some time with you!!
Remember that I love you now and always!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
Happy New Year!! It was a lovely New Years Eve around here since we just hung out together and did nothing. We got to be right after I chatted with you! Mom put the radio on so that we could not hear the fireworks. McKenzie seemed okay with them anyway. The big boom that happened outside when she was walking startled her but mom told her it was okay and just kept walking. For some reason she started barking at the turtles this afternoon. They splash down in the water when it's time for lunch and I guess she never noticed them before!
She did great last night. Mom put the crate back into the bedroom since she was home. Jennifer will put her to bed in the living room tonight and we hope it works out well. She and Ian will both be home tonight so they can hush her should she start making noise.
Dad is back in New Mexico on his way to Texas. It is raining down there. No rain here. Very clear and pretty but very cold. It was only 20 this morning when mom took Ian to work!
Back to work for mom tonight. She will be off next Tuesday and Wednesday. She is taking a week off at the beginning of February and hopes to get back to her old schedule of Thursday, Friday nights off after that!
How is everyone doing? Did they have a nice New Years Eve? I don't know if they had planned on going out or not! I imagine Nana would prefer to stay home! We sure hope she is doing okay and that the pain is letting up. We hate to think of her being in pain!!
We will be doing he stories in the afternoon for a while since mom has to take McKenzie on a long walk before she goes to work. It helps make her tired and help her sleep better. I know you won't mind at all!
Remember that I love you so very much my friend!!

Happy New year! It was a quite day around here. Mom hasn't been to sleep yet and she is ready for bed! She had to go out for a while this afternoon. She took McKenzie with her. Jennifer has been helping out a lot with her. You can not sit still for 5 minutes with that puppy running around! Mom is cleaning up one mess while the puppy is off making a new one!
Mom is off tonight but has to work tomorrow night. It worked out well for Ian since the buses are not running early tomorrow and he has to be to work at 7 am.
Mom put the crate in the living room last night and Jennifer sat with McKenzie until she fell asleep. Ian said she did not even fuss when he was getting ready for work! That's an improvement!
Got bathroom cleaning to get done tomorrow! That's not something to look forward to at all!hahahahaha
Come on over to the castle and lets celebrate Dixie's Hatchday and Kaji getting the crown! I just know that is going to happen! We can spend the New Year together! I can not think of a better way to welcome the New Year than with my sweet Gabbie!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
I am getting everything done before mom goes to bed. She should have been in bed an hour ago but she had to go get some food and more wee wee pads so she and Ian went to Walmart.
McKenzie cried and barked for nearly 3 hours after mom left last night. The neighbor heard her! Mom apologized and the neighbor said not to worry about it but mom knows better. Mom does not want to disturb anyone. We are trying to figure out what to do tonight. Mom will be off tomorrow so McKenzie will not fuss but most nights mom will be gone so we have to figure it out. She can not stay in the bedroom unless I sleep in my playcage. She is strong enough to pull the towels off the dresser and my night cage with it!! Also we have to worry about leaving her and Merlin together. Mom will figure it out!
I have our story ready to go so come and perch with me! I ca not wait to spend some time with you!
Remember that I love you so very much!
