Hi! My name is SUZIQ~HAPPY SPRING

I am a Solomon Islands Eclectus from Pasco, WA.

Miss Q
Q-Bird


17 years old   F

Solomon Islands Eclectus

I love corn but can't have any, so my next favorites are almonds and peanuts.

Mom and my cage, I love to attack my toys that are on the bottom of my cage...

I don't like daddy cleaning my house...and I try to get him

I love everything about her, she is my mom. She feeds me good food, plays with me, and loves me.

Not a habit but she is allergic to corn. The reason I can't have corn is that SuziQ started to toe tap and wing flap a few years back and I needed to figure out why as nothing had changed and she was healthy. One thing thought to cause this issue in ekkies is food as they are more sensitive to additives etc. so I tried an elimination diet to see if it indeed was a food related problem. I took away all food except for peas for three days and she stopped toe tapping and wing flapping, then tried adding carrots and all was fine, I then gave her corn and the toe tapping and wing flapping started again so took away the corn and within three days all was fine again. I kept adding different items one at a time until she was back to her regular diet but without the corn. She has never toe tapped or wing flapped again unless I give her some corn by mistake.
It is important to monitor our ekkies diet as they are more sensitive to foods than most parrots.

She also loves to lay eggs...

GUS + SUZIQ = LOVE
Love is what it is all about!

  Gus climbs on the perch with Suzi
Then he gives her a big hug and a kiss. The party at the 10k club is still going on for Willie and Chyna so lets go there and celebrate again with all our friends.They are on their way!!
We had lots of trouble blogging last night on BC so hope tonight goes more smoothly. Today was another pretty day here. We were suppose to get rain here yesterday but that never happened. This morning mom was getting coats out of the closet in the hall and laying them on the chair. When mom gets a coat out of there I know she is going to go somewhere so I started to watch her really close. She had more then one I could tell that and she laid them on another chair. I went to investigate and mom said she was only going to wash them and hang them out to dry. Later she showed me them all hanging on the line out the window. I got a bath this morning. Then later we went out for my sunbath since it was such a nice warm day. Actually I got two sunbaths today cause we went out again before dinner. “We don’t meet people by accident.

  Gus crawls up on the swing with Suzi
and he gives her a kiss and hug and they both almost fall off as the swing goes back and forth but they hang on and laugh as it uprights again.My favorite part of the day is coming to see you my love. They sit and hold wings and then decide to go down to the pie shop that is run by Mikey and Kacey and see some of their friends.
Mom washed clothes and sheets today and hung a few things out on the line. She loves getting the sheets on the line at least and that she did. Then this afternoon moms cousin picked her up and they went to their friends and made some cards but I suspect most of it was talking and laughing though mom did come home with a few pretty cards they made. The one her cousin demonstrated and showed how to make and it was very pretty too. Mom had things pretty well prepped for dinner and dad was home with me so that worked out good. “We don’t meet people by accident.

  Hello Little Darling
Gus gives his girl a big hug and a kiss. Boy that hiking was rough yesterday but sure glad we could fly!! Lets relax today and go kayaking. I packed us a lunch and put it on an innertube so we dont lose it in the water. Off they go on todays adventure!!
This morning mom took the winter comfort and blanket to the Laundromat and washed them and then she bought them back home and hung them on the line. They are too big and heavy for our washer here at home. She did some cleaning in the back rooms and then we went outside for my sunbath. Mom put some of the summer decorations up outside and I supervised. There was an electric man came and changed the street light bulb out front on the big pole. It wasn’t burnt out but this one has a different color to it at night. I was glad when he was done and left with his noisy toys. Most of moms lawn decorations have solar lights on them so when it got dark enough mom and I looked at them out the window. “We don’t meet people by accident.

  Gus whispers to Suzi to wake up
from her nap and she looks around to find Gus. He gives her a big kiss and a hug and tells her he packed a big picnic lunch and thought since its such a nice day they could go hiking. They get their hiking gear and off they go.
Today was another busy day here. Mom says catching up on things left behind is rough but she is getting there. Its been cold here and mom usually has her plants out on the porch by now and her winter blankets off the bed and washed and put away and summer ones on. Mom decided today after she got back from getting a few groceries she would put her plants out so while mom was doing that I got my sunbath. She had the door on the house open and the plants are close to the door so I kept a close watch on things. She ended up throwing two of the plants out so we are two less LOL.

He climbs up on the perch with her and gives her a big kiss and a hug and whispers he loves her very much and has missed her while he was off line but now we are back and boy am I glad!! Lets go for a walk and get something to eat and talk my love.
Well our company came and stayed and then left so we are back again. We sure did miss you all too and happy to get back online again! Mom was busy washing clothes and hung a few things out on the line and then she scrubbed the floors. It was foggy here this morning and then as the day wore on it kept getting warmer. Mom went to the store just for a few things we were low on and when she came back we went out to sit on the porch and I got my sunbath. We had a rain coming up and mom had to start dinner so we came back in the house. “We don’t meet people by accident.

  Hello my love!!
I had a lovely night with you my darling last night and hope you did too. Let go get an ice cream and celebrate again. It sure was cold here today and can you believe we even had snow flurries and sleet? Yep and you know with that type of weather I didnt get a sunbath either.
Company is coming so after tonight we wont be on BC till after May 23.Last night was another great time at the Derby Milonga. Thanks for all that work so hard to make it such a fun time for all of us fids too. Also congratulations to all the winners. Hugs to every birdy that helped me win 3rd place in the hat contest and a very special thanks for Kaji and his mom for making the picture for me too. I could of never done it with out them! Its sad to think it will probably be our last derby milonga once BC is shut down but till it really is we can hope it wont happen. “We don’t meet people by accident.

  Gus knocks on Suzi door
and when she answers he gives a very loud wolf whistle. Wow your so beautiful and what lucky fid I am to escort you to the milonga tonight. Then he gives his girl a big kiss and they are out the door.
There was a mountain bike race at the trail today. These bikers ride in the woods mostly and some of the paths are hard to walk on let alone ride but the guys enjoy doing this every year. The whole trouble was it rained a lot of the race and was very muddy. Dad had to help with parking vehicles in the parking lot for it.

  Hello my love!!
Wow lots of hatchday cakes here at your house today!! Thanks for inviting me to the double party my love! I bought some presents over for the hatchday kids too.
I went in with mom while she took her bath tonight. I sat on the curtain rod for a while and when mom was done with her bath she reached up for me to step up but I didn’t want to so she went in the bedroom. Well I decided then I wanted to go with mom so flew in behind her and landed on her shoulder. My beak and nails were trimmed but sure glad I have my wings to fly!! “We don’t meet people by accident.

They sit there and swing away. Gus gives his girl a kiss and the swing starts to really go fast and they both giggle.Lets go to a movie and get some popcorn and snacks. You pick the movie my love.
I usually get a bath once a week at least but its been cold and if or when it does warm up then its late afternoon and mom doesn’t like giving me a bath late in the day. Today it finally warmed up and I got my bath early this morning and then this afternoon I got a nice sunbath too. I did get my own bath in my water bowl when mom ran the sweeper earlier this week but mom says that doesn’t really count. Now its suppose to get cold again here. The grand was suppose to have a school softball game today but it got cancelled and good thing too cause about that time we had a thunderstorm roll through with heavy rains. Mom and dad were about to leave when skin sis called to say the game was cancelled.. Sure was glad to have mom home to be with me instead!! “We don’t meet people by accident.

  Ummm Good morning my love
ahhh I think the BC bus broke down and I spent the night here cause I think you were the last I chatted with LOL.So not much new either.
We couldn’t finish our blogs again last night cause BC was messed up again. Here is the blog we had last night to send to our friends. Mom went on the grocery run today to pick up a few things but will need to go again before the company arrives. It was another cold day here and feels more like fall instead of spring. I am sure once it starts to warm up it will do that all at once then too. The grand had another softball game but it was a little earlier and the parronts thought it would be cancelled because of earlier rain here but it wasn’t so they didn’t go to this one. The grands school won 13-2 tonight. The parronts might go tomorrow night if its not cancelled since it doesn’t start as early as todays did. Mom says company is coming next Monday so while they are here we wont be on BC. They are staying for a week and once they leave and it settles down we will be back on. “We don’t meet people by accident.

pack your bags honey...Angel Chi chi is at the castle and says for everybirdy to come and help celebrate!! Woo hoo we get another night at the castle and can party too. Sure will be lots of fun and spending time with you anywhere is always fun my darling!!
The grand has 4 school softball games this week and though one is away its still not far so I know mom and dad will be going to some of them if they don’t get rained out or cancelled for some reason. Mom and dad did go to the one tonight and the team had two games against the same team and the grands school wont them both. They had played this team before but it started to storm so they had to quit so that is why they did the two tonight then. There are still 3 more games this week if it doesn’t get cancelled for some reason. Then mom says company is coming next Monday so while they are here we wont be on BC.

Hope all the moms had a great Mothers Day!! The kids all called mom today and since they are moms or the wives are with kids of their own mom sure knows how busy they are and happy they called though. Today mom and I had lots of cuddle time to make up for some of yesterday while she was gone with dad. The sun was out nice today and mom thought I might go out for a sunbath but our high was only 62 and it was windy so no sunbath today. Glad I got mine yesterday at least. “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. Its learning to dance in the rain.” Left a vote for you my girlfriend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

wake up Gus teases his Suzi. Mom and dad are going to the farm so we can go along with them today!!
We are running behind tonight so our blog is a bit short. I did get my sunbath today and boy was that sun nice and warm too!! Mom and dad went up to the farm a bit this afternoon, They picked dads brother up since he there helping his son on the farm a bit for the summer. They then went to drop off the pictures that dad had borrowed from their cousin and then they all stopped to have dinner together. I stayed home and got caught up on my rest a bit and then when mom got home we had lots of time together before I went in for my night perch for good. “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass.

Today was another cool day so you know your truly didn’t get out for a sunbath again today. Mom did go for a walk but just on the back streets in the neighborhood. Dad has been having trouble with his back hurting for some reason. Mom thinks it’s the damp weather and arthritis and cutting the grass on the tractor at the trail but of course dad has other ideas so mom just keeps quiet LOL. “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass.

  Hi My love
I sure did miss you and couldnt wait to come over to see you today. Gus gives his girl a big kiss and a hug. I still was tired today but finally by evening I am getting less tired. Those grooms sure wear me out. Lets go to the spa today and relax and get a massage.
I am usually ready for bed time between 8:30 and 9 and go to bed willingly. Mom and I go through the whole tradition every night and once I get my good night kiss I go right on my sleeping perch and mom covers me and then usually sits and finishes up my blogs. Mom said she hears me getting down and eating my pellets a little bit every night though. Yep I do that and its different with the cover on but before long I am back on my perch sound asleep again.

  Hi Sweet ♥
Can you rub my beak? well maybe a kiss on it would help it more LOL. Oh yea my toes hurt too but the kiss on the beak will help them both my love.
Oh woe is me what a day I had. Yep that dreaded groom though mine only consists of a beak and nail trim it is still not good. Not only that but I just had this done at the vets a month ago but mom said he didn’t get them short enough and holding me was painful to her hands and shoulder. I heard mom on the phone talking to Cindy but didn’t know it was about me!! Pretty soon mom and I were going down the steps and I was in my wingabago and on our way. Oh I had lots to say and talk about…I love going in the car. There was lots of construction of course along the way. Finally we were at c&b warehouse and then wrapped in that dreaded towel and the dirty deed done to my talons and beak! Mom did buy me a nice toy something like Grey Birds mom did with coffee filters. I was quiet on the way home and we stopped at skin sis but I didn’t have anything to say there either., Then the silent ride home and once on my condo I went right in and got on my perch and the silent treatment to mom again. Maybe I will forgive her tomorrow. Right now I am tired and just want to sleep! “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass.

Gus gives a wolf whistle and gives his girl a big kiss and a hug!! Mom got some goodies at the store today so lets go raid the cupboards LOL
Last night we were late getting on and tried to do my blogs but it just kept circling and only got one done and took us 15 minutes to do that one so we had to quit. Sorry about that and here is last nights blog. I don’t know about you but mom says I get more wound up in the afternoon. Today I kept flying over to the kitchen divider and trying to get into a bag of pretzels that mom has close by. Mom would tell me “go home” and I would but not for long and be back at the pretzels again. This went on for a good 15 minutes and then I knocked some of moms knick knacks down the steps to show her I was upset. Mom picked them up and put them back and told me again to go home. I did but was not happy. I yelled at mom and she said that wasn’t nice and as soon as I could I flew back over and promptly threw the knick knacks down the steps again. This time mom made me go in the condo for a while. I was not happy but after I cooled down and mom left me out again I figured those pretzels were not worth all that grief! I am sure tomorrow I will try again though. “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. Its learning to dance in the rain.” Left a vote for you my boyfriend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

I knew mom didn’t get those feathers cut short enough! Yep she went today and flew off. After she got us all breakfast (her, dad and me) and my bean mix made and a bowl of fruit made in the frig for dad to give me she went to pick up the one grand and then to skin sis and picked her and that grand up and they went shopping. The one grand is going to the 8th grade farewell event but the other grand doesn’t want to go. Really neither wants to get all dressed up to go but some friends are talking the grand into going so she needed a dress for the occasion. The grands pitching coach is getting married in October so imagine the grand will wear it then too. Mom got dad a couple pair of jeans there since mom can usually find his size there in the brand he likes. I was glad that dad was home with me and yep I got that bowl of fruit in the afternoon. I was glad when I heard mom pull in the garage though!! “A memory last forever never does it die. True friends stay together and never say goodbye.” Your boyfriend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Today mom was home all day though she was downstairs cleaning a little bit so I had to be in my condo then. Maybe this feather trim is keeping her home now. After she got her feather trim yesterday all her curls were gone so she had to give herself another perm when she got home. When mom does that she hides out in the back room till she is done because she doesn’t want me around the stinky stuff. Good it don’t take her long though and a double good cause dad was home so I could be out of the condo at least. “A memory last forever never does it die.

Today was another cool cloudy day here in the burg. At least it was as cold and dreary as it was yesterday. Mom did a few things around here this morning and then she got ready to go for a much needed hair cut. I usually get a bath on Friday but mom said it was a bit too cold today so maybe tomorrow I will get one. Mom said she will blow dry me if its still cold. I miss my sun baths though and they sure help my feathers a lot. I start looking pretty bad by the end of winter cause I like to chew off my feathers. I just take the tips of the feather off and leave some and mom says I feel like a porcupine . There are some new ones coming in now and I am not chewing them off as much now either. I wonder if this hair cut will keep mom from flying away so much!! “A memory last forever never does it die. True friends stay together and never say goodbye.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Its cold and rainy at home so I came to see you early today. Its nice here so lets go do something fun!!
Mom didn’t have a very good day yesterday. She decided to go to the fruit stand after washing up the sheets and hanging them out and some house cleaning. Well her wallet was missing. Mom called Giant Eagle since that is where she used it last. They didn’t have it. Then she tore the car apart inside and the trunk and no wallet. She started calling to cancel her cards and get new ones then. She looked in the car again and all the rooms in the house. Then she had to go to the bank so she stopped at the fruit stand and got a few things too. She came home and took the sheets off the line and put stuff away and looked some more. She got supper and did dishes and cleaned up and then started to clean my condo and play gym. Then it hit her!! Yep she took her wallet along to vote and left it in dads truck. She ran out to get it and there it was. Now she has to wait on all the new cards to come and then do what she has to do with them too. Wow what a day. Mom looked pretty tired tonight. “A memory last forever never does it die. True friends stay together and never say goodbye.” Your boyfriend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi my sweet &heart; Suzi
I am back again!! Mom said we can go to the fruit stand today with her and pick out what we want there. They have the best unsalted cashews so we need a few bags of those for sure just to start with. Maybe we need to make a list my love.
Today was another cool day here so of course I didn’t get a sunbath. Mom did wash the sheets and hung them out and good thing cause its suppose to rain tomorrow the weather guesser says. Every week mom buys a pineapple and cuts it up and puts it in the refrigerator for most mom and me to eat it. Dad does get into it but not as much as mom and I enjoy it. Mom and I eat lots of fruit. Mom decided she would try to get a pineapple plant to grow so mom watched on you tube and found out what she needed to do to get it going. Well mom keeps changing the water every day and it finally looks like there are teeny tiny things growing on the sides so hoping they are roots. We should know one way or the other in a few days though. “A memory last forever never does it die. True friends stay together and never say goodbye.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Gus and Suzi
sit in the flower garden smelling the fresh flowers and enjoying the sunshine.A few of their hummingbird friends show up and they all squeal in delight. I think we need to go for a root beer float down at the corner ice cream stand. They head out as they tell Aunt Gail they will be back before dark.
This morning after mom got my breakfast and hers and dads she decided to go for groceries. It was raining but mom figured she would dodge the rain drops and get it over with. Dad was home so I didn’t have to go in my condo and stay so that was good. When mom got back and put stuff away her and dad went to vote. Then I did have to be in my condo but the good part was its close by and they weren’t gone long. “A memory last forever never does it die.

Today was a very pretty day and mom even hung some clothes out on the line when she washed today. Mom did the usual chores today and I helped her to scrub the floors and run the sweeper. I did mess up my condo a bit when mom ran that pesty sucking machine and I took a bath in my water bowl. Then later I finally got my sun bath I haven’t been able to get for a good while cause of the colder weather. That sun sure did feel good and the rope perches mom got at the bird show yesterday work really good. It sure made the sun bath even better I think LOL. Mom says rain is coming in tomorrow the weather guesser says so good I got my sun bath today!! “A memory last forever never does it die.

  Gus comes roaring in on his
Motorcycle and finds Suzi sitting on her swing. He sits down beside her and gives her a big kiss and a hug. Mom is going to a bird show today so she said we can go along and pick out our own things we want there. How about that??
This morning mom decided she would go to the bird show in Irwin. She called and asked the grands if any of them wanted to go with her. The grandson and the youngest grand daughter did. Mom picked them up on the way. The oldest one didn’t want to go cause the two others fight. Mom will take her by herself another time though. Cindy told mom that Aunt Arlene was looking for her but mom hunted for her and thought she might be in the show way down front but didn’t want to walk down there and find out it wasn’t her! Mom continued to look for Aunt Arlene and decided she must of left and they missed each other. Mom got some cooked foods that are ok for me and a cloth perch for in my outside condo and two leather type toys so that was what she bought home from the show. There was lots of people there though so a good turn out. There was lots of birds for sale and the one room was a very loud birds in there and one that really screeched and yelled loudly!! “Best friends are the ones you can do anything or nothing with and still have the best time.” Your best friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Gus comes up quietly behind Suzi
and puts his wings over her eyes and says Guess who and she says Gus you silly man and they both laugh. It was a tad cold here all day so of course I didnt get my sun bath again today. I thought maybe we could go watch a movie with a huge tub of popcorn and then after the movie get us something good to eat.
Mom and dad were up super early this morning. Then they left to get blood work at one of places that does it every year for different things. Dad had to do some things down on the trail with some of the workers and had to meet them early so he was rushing around to get done and out of here. Once he left mom and I spent time together and snuggled. Then mom said she had to go see the grands for a little while so I took a nap while she was gone. She was back soon though. I heard her calling to get an appointment for a feather trim next week so hoping that keeps her from flying off so much like she has been lately!! “Best friends are the ones you can do anything or nothing with and still have the best time.” Your boy friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Gus looks for Suzi
and then he sees her on the swing. He climbs up besides her and gives her a kiss. Its been busy at my house he says and doesnt look like any slow downs soon. Sure nice to come sit with you awhile my love.Lets go to the park and watch the wild birds awhile and get some ice cream too.
Yesterday mom and dad went to visit with dads cousin and of course she lives an hour away too, Mom and dad didn’t leave till late so by the time they visited a bit and stopped for dinner and got home it was later then mom wanted to be too to do our blogs. That was why our blogs was a bit short last night and sorry about that. Dad wanted to borrow some old pictures from his cousin when they were all younger. So he got them and now another trip back to return them another day. At least they were only gone about 4 hours and I had a nice nap but shhhhh don’t tell mom LOL. “Best friends are the ones you can do anything or nothing with and still have the best time.” Your best friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hello my love
Chat more tomorrow night if we can my love ..hugs and kisses to you sweetheart.
We are running late tonight so this is a bit short. Well the local fruit stand opened up yesterday but mom didn’t make it there for the opening but know she will be there soon. It was a little late in opening this year too. One of moms friends told her that the one brother stayed in Aruba this year where he lives and isn’t coming back to help run the fruit stand. Since its just the two other brothers running it now they are going to be closed on Monday and Tuesdays so mom will have to pick another day to visit other then her regular grocery run day which is Tuesday. Or she may change her grocery shopping day too. “Best friends are the ones you can do anything or nothing with and still have the best time.” Your best friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Gus sneaks up behind Suzi
and puts his hands on her eyes and says "Guess who" Suzi laughs loud and says "I know its you Gus" Then he spins her around and gives her a big kiss and a hug. I sure did miss you sweetheart. Lets go fishing today. We can sit there and watch the fish ..that is my idea of fishing LOL.
Those little sparrows just keep trying to build a nest in the gutters yet. Mom keeps cleaning it out. Today she got some rubber snakes she had and put them hanging out of the gutter and some chimes and a little girl swinging so hope that keeps them away. Mom sure doesn’t want them building the nest and laying eggs and we get a heavy rain and everything gets washed away! I got another sunbath today but mom said this nice weather is soon going to end with rain coming in. The good news is its only going to last a couple of days and get nice again. “Best friends are the ones you can do anything or nothing with and still have the best time.” Your boyfriend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Gus comes in quietly
and surprises Suzi as he sits on the swing with her. They laugh and then Gus gives his girl a big kiss. I sure enjoy being with you my love. Mom and dad are going to watch the one grands school softball game today so lets go along and watch the fun.
When mom and I go out for my sunbath there are some sparrows that come to visit. The one seems pretty friendly. It gets in the rain gutter that comes off the porch and mom didn’t think anything of it till today when she saw all the nesting material sticking out of the gutter. Mom cleaned it all out and hope they don’t try to build a nest there again cause they will flooded out! They already tried to build a nest above the porch light but mom puts a jug up there and they give it up then.. Mom says when a rain comes they will give the porch gutters up too. “Best friends are the ones you can do anything or nothing with and still have the best time.” Your boyfriend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hello Sweet ♥
Gus says as he climbs up on the perch with Suzi. Then he gives her a big kiss and a hug. There is a bike race on the trail today so lets go and watch and we could even enter it if you think you would like that! I have a bike built for two and left it down at the trail so we could enter on that if you want.
Today was the usual floor scrubbing and clothes washing day here. I had another sunbath and mom always makes time for them for me. It was 79 here today so quite warm and the sun was shining brightly. Once I came inside again I fixed my feathers for a long time. After supper mom and dad went to the grands softball game since it wasn’t far from home either. The parronts don’t go to the away games unless they are close to home. It was an action packed game and the grands team won 6 to 3,“Best friends are the ones you can do anything or nothing with and still have the best time.” Your boyfriend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hello my love!!
Oh I had a wonderful time with you last night at the milonga! Well lets face it honey any time I am with you its a wonderful time. Gus gives his girl a big hug and a kiss. Its so pretty today lets just go for a bike ride and enjoy the day. I packed us a lunch to take too so it can be a nice relaxing day.
Last night was another wonderful night at the milonga. The pictures were so nice and the flowers so pretty and just a great time had by all. Thanks for all that make this fun time for us and really appreciate it a lot! Mom and dad didn’t get home till a bit later so I was there but no typist for a while. I think I need to take mom to get her feathers trimmed cause she sure has been flying off the last few days. She says today is a stay at home day and cuddle time just for me so I forgave her.
It was another pretty day and I got another sun bath. I sure am enjoying this weather a lot! “True friends are never apart. Maybe in distance but never in heart.“ Your boyfriend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Gus sees his sweetie Suzi
and gives a loud wolf whistle and then he gives her a kiss and tells her she looks so pretty but she always does but is a big knock out tonight. Are you ready for the milonga my love? Mom and dad were a bit late so it will be quiet a while for us but that is ok. We can see the pretty flowers and be with our friends my love. Gus and Suzi get in the car and they are off for the milonga!!!

  Gus pulls up on his motorcycle and
knocks on the door then comes in and sits beside Suzi. He gives her a big kiss and hug and then asks if she wants to go for a ride with him on the Harley and she says yes so off they go.
Today mom finally got the windows cleaned out front and the others she didn’t do while she spring cleaning. There is bushes in front of the house and mom had to squeeze behind them with the ladder and paper towels and window cleaner all in her hand. Not an easy job and once she got up the ladder then coming back down the bushes would get her in the tail feathers LOL. She is glad there is only two there but they are the whole distance across the bushes. I was out side getting my sun bath since mom was right there. Then tonight mom and dad went to watch another of the grands softball games so I had a nap after I tore all my stuff down from the shelf in my condo. That is just to let mom know I wasn’t happy she left even if she did give me a nut before she left. “True friends are never apart.

  Gus climbs up on the swing with Suzi
and gives her a big kiss that almost knocks both of them off the swing. They both giggle and then swing high. Today is a very pretty day so lets go for a nice walk and enjoy it and of course we gotta stop and get something to eat...how about some ice cream then to top it off?
Last night we couldn’t finish all our blogs on BC cause we kept getting the error page. That is why some of you didn’t hear from us last night and sorry about that. We noticed it was messed up from the beginning and would vote for one of our friends and the vote light never went out. In fact we couldn’t even sign out of BC either!! We are trying again tonight so cross our wings it works tonight. “True friends are never apart. Maybe in distance but never in heart.“ Your boyfriend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hey baby doll
I came to take you to watch the grand play with the softball school team today. I hope you like softball but bet you will after we see this game LOL. Gus gives his girl a big kiss and a hug. I sure do love you Suzi and so happy your my gal.
Oh I hope you will go to the milonga with me on Saturday night. I am hoping mom and dad will be home or I might be looking for a typist LOL.
After dinner tonight mom and dad went to watch the grands softball team. The older girls were on the field and had to wait on them to finish their game so the grands team didn’t start till 6. It was getting pretty cold at the end but the good news is the grands team won 5 to 8. During the day mom did do some cleaning in the back rooms again today but I watched out the window so was out while she did that. Sometimes I get to hollering a bit at the wild birds out there and mom has to remind me I am in the house and the wild birds are outside so I need to tone it down a bit. They do get me excited watching them and the dog next door too. He barks a lot and I sometimes imitate him too. Yep I can do a pretty good bark too. “True friends are never apart.

  Gus flies in to see Suzi
and she meets him at the door and he gives her a big kiss and they sit a while and chat. I thought we could go horse back riding today if you want to. My friends have a couple of horses and said we could ride them and thought that would be fun. I did pack a lunch so we could stop after awhile and have lunch too on the trail.
Mom went for groceries today and came home with some really nice juicy strawberries and they are even better then the ones we had last week. Of course you know mom came home with a whole bunch more stuff too! Thanks for all your input on the wrappers and me regurgitating on them. Mom has decided not to give them to me any more since it probably has to do with the mating process and I don’t need any encouraging in that department LOL. “True friends are never apart.

  Gus arrives with a bouquet of flowers
for Suzi. Nope I didnt take from Aunt Gails garden. I bought them at the store and we can eat these. Gus chomps on one to show Suzi and then she grabs one and starts eating it. They both start to laugh as they sit eating flowers.
We have a question for our bird family and an opinion as to what you would do. There are paper wrappers that mom gets candy in and Gus likes to regurgitate on them. He holds them and does this. Mom took them away and hasn’t given him any since. Mom is wondering if you think she should give them to him or not and why either way. Thanks for your help. Well we had rain here today but I must admit it is better then snow and it’s a tad warmer too. Mom was washing clothes and scrubbing floors and had that sucking machine out again. Of course that makes me just get in my water bowl for a bath so it gives mom plenty to do. One good thing when the weather is yucky it keeps mom home and in the house and lots of Gus time too. “True friends are never apart.
