What a nice pic! No internet at the track? That is terrible! HOpe they can be talked into changing the situation there. A basket on the chair is a good thing for gardening, it will make it a lot easier.
How quickly things change! Yesterday it was in the mid 80s, with rain and some thunder. Today it's in the mid 50s, and gloomy looking. No pool today for sure.
Mom did get lots of errands run yesterday, so that was good.
Mom was supposed to feed the bats outside in the bat tent this morning, but there were no mealworms. One of the interns went on a shopping trip, but by the time he got back, mom only had 15 minutes left, and that's not nearly enough time to feed 7 bats. Instead, she put up about 14 jars of fledgling food, cleaned the outdoor raccoon and groundhog cages, and washed a ton of dishes. One of the (new) interns came into the kitchen while mom was putting the fledgling diet into large jars (think gigantic Jif jars, that's what they use) and said to mom, "There are no flat dishes. Do you think I should wait until there are some?" Mom said sure, it was okay to wait, but there was another alternative: wash them yourself! (What a novel concept!)
She said, "I never thought of THAT!" and proceeded to wash and disinfect the dishes she needed. Mom thought that was hysterical! Just think, if mom had waited for the bat food, she'd have gotten nothing done for nearly 2 hours!
Another new volunteer had a million questions, but that's fine; mom would rather they ask and get the correct information than if they try to 'wing it' on their own and do something wrong. She was a little afraid of the hawks in the smaller flight area so mom walked in and asked her to follow, so she could see the hawks were not interested in attacking her.
Anyway, we renewed our internet security today, and will finish up the laundry when mom is done typing for us. I hope you have a great day and get lots of cuddles and scritches, and maybe something good to eat, too. Hugs, Falco

Wow, that's a great price on the windows. We need our bay window done, and it's about 20' off the ground in back, so mom has never cleaned it. It gets rain washed, that's all. She can do the little side windows there, because they come out, but not the big one.
It's really cold again today, high of 56, but we don't think it's anywhere near there yet. Mom took lots of flower pics, so will post them on all 3 pages. There are 19 or so new pics. It's a good thing she took the azalea pics yesterday, because it rained overnight and with the cool weather and rain, many of the flowers have dropped off the bushes already.
Today mom had 2 tours, both from the same school district, and both in Dinosaurs. The kids were 4th graders, which is the grade mom likes best. So her time at the museum was lots of fun this morning. Later we will get our cages cleaned, and mom will go to dinner with Aunt Renee. Aunt Renee is leaving next week to go to Texas and celebrate her namesake's 90th birthday. Mom will have a card ready for her to take to Aunt Lorene when she goes.
Not much new, enjoy the flowers! Hope you are having a good day with sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

You finished a lot higher in the race than a lot of folks, for sure. Willie was so far back, he could just turn around and be at the start again, hahaha. The new trailer for mom's scooter sounds like a good idea! Hope it works out.
Mom had 2 tours again today, and she liked both groups even though they were first and second grades. They had enough chaperones to herd them and keep them focused, which made it easier.
After a stop at Trader Joe's on the way home, she got back to us and our blogs. She will walk the dogs when she finishes the blogs, we think. Tonight is cage cleaning night again. I know, she just pressure washed the cages, but you know how we all are, they all need wiped down again.
We posted the pics of the fox and the owlets with Martha on our pages, so everyone can see them. Hope you like them.
I hope also that you are having a good day there, and getting springlike temps. It's in the mid 60s here, which is good for walking and working outside, but not good enough for us to go out. Get lots of loving today! Hugs, Falco

Congratulations on your place victory last night, it was a super race! Mom gets floaters every now and again, you get used to them. We saw pics of the deck on FB, it looks so comfortable and homey.
Thanks to all those who made another memorable milonga last night, especially Chyna, Kiddo, Taz, Ranebeau, and Sammy. It sure was a fun evening. Congrats to all the winners of the race and the hat contest, too.
Happy Mother's Day to all the bird moms and human moms out there.
Yesterday mom planted 3 flats of assorted flowers, 1 hanging basket, and bought 2 other hanging baskets. We still don't have all the planters full, but it's a good start. She decided to put all the herbs in one of the large planters, so there are about 8 basil plants, some oregano, parsley, thyme, and rosemary all in a convenient planter close to the house. The sage and chives have been coming up for years in the garden, and that's where they are staying.
Mom is working the dinosaur cart with touchable objects on it at the museum today, and later her family is coming over here with dinner. They will go out to dinner next week, when restaurants are not so crowded. They call it the Julian calendar mother's day, hahaha.
I hope you are having a beautiful spring day and getting lots of extra cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

It's neat that dad made such a good impression on the new owner of the bike shop. We think he was wise not to race on bad brakes, too. Mom has a lilac in bloom, and the azaleas look like they're ready to pop any minute, too.
Today we are going to lose mom for awhile because she's going to lunch with Lena, then run a few errands. It seems the wild birds need more food, and mom needs something called moisturizer. Tonight Jessica and Aunt Gin are coming over to watch The Grand Budapest Hotel with mom. Mom has a pork roast and some carrots in the crock pot, and the house already smells good.
I hope you are having better weather than we are today, it's cool and rainy here. May you get lots of springtime weather, cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Jewels
I love the deck color, it's really pretty. The flowers are neat, too. Wow, dad is racing on Sunday already? It seems so early, but we guess it's May, so it's time!
Mom got some yard work done last evening, YAY! She cleared a lot of leaves and brush, and planted a currant bush. It has flowers, so we're hoping it has currants on it later. We'll get to sample them if they grow.
Well, mom had 2 tours again today, and both were anthropology tours. The tour is called 3 cultures, and used to be an hour and a half long, which was fine. Now it's an hour long, but still 3 groups! Usually the docents do 3 desert cultures, ancient Egypt, modern Inuit, and Hopi in American Indian Hall. Today there were over 100 students touring at the same time, so some docents did different groups in Indians. Mom did the Lakota, just because there was nobody in there. She also did Egypt and Inuit groups. All the kids were between grades 6 and 8, so they were easy to teach.
Tonight mom will go to dinner with her sister to a new Italian restaurant which is fairly close by. The place used to be called The River's Edge, because a lot of the tables overlook the Allegheny River. Mom hopes they get a river view tonight, it's neat to watch what's happening on the water.
I hope you are having better weather than we are today. It's gloomy looking and cool, not like yesterday. I hope also that you are getting lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Jewels
Did mom post pics on another page? I still see the ones that were there before.
Mom had 2 tours today, at 10:10 and 12:30. She hates having all that time between tours, because it's not long enough to get home and back, and too long to sit and do nothing. She went to see the visiting Van Gogh that's in the art museum, though, so the time was pretty well spent. She likes Van Gogh.
The kids were all fifth graders from a county to the north of us, they had about an hour's bus ride to get to the museum. They had 2 tours while they were there. While one group did 3 cultures, the others did dinosaurs. They switched after lunch. Both of mom's tours were in dinosaurs, though, so she saw 2 different groups.
It's an absolutely gorgeous day outside, in the low 70s and sunny today. Mom is hoping to get us out for awhile when we are done blogging. I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of spring weather, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

That pic in my gallery came from Aunt Rose, Dixie's mom. She did it as a prize for naming the theme on Name That Tune. If you ask her, I'm sure she'll share the source with you.
Mom planted some VA bluebells today, hope they take and flower next year. They are so pretty. Later on, she has to lead a tour at the center. It's for some 4th graders from a local school who have been doing a collection of money and goods for the wildlife center. Mom is looking forward to that, because she loves 4th graders. That's the grade she taught most when she was working and it's always been her favorite group.
Maybe she will have time for nails today too, it's time to change the blue fish for something a little more springy, haha.
It's a sunny bright day, hope it warms enough to get us outside when mom gets home. She might even get a little work done outside today.
Hope you are having a good spring day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Jewels
Wow, those flowers look great! Mom loves ranunculus, but it only grows for a short time here, then it's gone. Our lilacs are just starting to bloom.
Last night we were in lockdown because mom, Aunt Gin, and Jessica went to dinner and a movie. They ate at Houlihan's, a local bar/restaurant, and saw Woman in Gold, with Helen Mirren. All 3 of them loved the movie, it was very good.
Today mom fed the bats again, and there are baby raccoons in the RVS room now so mom got to hear them crying while she was feeding the bats. The staff came in to feed them, so mom got to see a couple of them too. They are so cute, it's too bad they grow up to be such pests. Mom is hoping that the staff can get in touch with the folks that brought in 5 babies. They trapped them in their attic, but mom is still up there. My mom told the staff if they could trap the mom, they could bring her to the center and she can raise her own babies in one of the outdoor pens where they will be safe from human interference.
I hope you are having a good day today and getting some spring weather, cuddles and scritches. It's raining here. Hugs, Falco

I hope your bird club pres and your mom feel better soon! It's not easy hurting, especially when you want to do so much.
Today is beautiful, sunny but still kind of cool. Mom has 2 public tours at the museum today in Dinosaur hall. She was hoping to get some outdoor work done, but now that she's showered, she will dress for work instead. Later she is going to see Woman in Gold, the movie with Helen Mirren. It hasn't had great reviews, but she likes the cast.

WE don't see any new pics yet, but we're sure they will be there soon. It's great that the old carrier was sold, so now the new one can be bought.

Don't forget to vote for your favorite lady's and gent's hats on the milonga page from now to May 7. You can get there through the big hat avatar in my aviary if you don't have the page number.
Okay, this cold weather has to stop soon! Mom was going to work in the garden today, but it's only low 40s outside right now, and really cloudy. If the weather changes, she'll have some time to work outdoors, but if not, I guess it's only laundry today.
That's fine with me, because I'll get to help out by dive bombing those towels to make sure they're fluffy and warm, and walking all over the socks to make sure they look good.
I hope you have a good day, with spring weather and lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

We hope that other one sells, then, so the new one can be bought. It's great that mom is done and you have lilacs in bloom already. Here, there are leaf buds on the lilac, but no flower buds yet. Our peonies are about 8 inches high, and the azaleas have yet to bloom.
Happy Earth Day, do something nice for your mother (earth) today.
Mom had a tour with second graders today. As you might know, that's one of her least favorite ages, but this group was fantastic! They knew a little already and were eager to learn all they could about dinosaurs. Mom tells all her groups about some characteristics at the beginning of the tour, then as the tour goes on, she asks questions in front of certain dinos. Examples are big body, little head = herbivore, or teeth can regrow. This group nailed all of them! That's unusual for kids that young. Anyway mom had fun and at the end, one of the teachers told her that she's the best docent they ever had. This teacher has been doing this tour for several years now, so she really liked what she heard today.
Tomorrow is another tour day, so we'll be later getting online again. It was raining cats and dogs this morning. At least that's what mom said, but all I saw were raindrops. Polly didn't want to walk, and Daisy didn't want to stay out long, so maybe they will get a good walk later today. I hope you are having a good spring day, it feels like fall here, with temps in the mid 40s. Get lots of cuddles and scritches while you can! Hugs, Falco

Wow, it sounds like an adventure going to Sonic! I think we have those here, but mom likes Dairy Queen or a local ice cream place, called Brrrrkees.
This morning mom had a docent meeting and after the business was done, the educational loan manager came in and talked about a new animal exhibit that will be at the museum from May to January. It looks exciting and interactive for kids, but we think adults will get a lot out of it, too. Of course, the adults probably won't put on the chipmunk vests and go exploring inside tree trunks, but there is a naturalist's tent set up where lots can be done by all ages, and everyone can enjoy some of the activities.
After lunch with some of the docents, they all headed over to the mandatory afternoon training on workplace discrimination and harassment. What a bore! Mom sat way in the back and ducked out kind of early, because the guy giving the talk was speaking in a monotone, and mom thought she'd fall asleep.
Of course, our blogs needed to be done, too, so that was another reason to leave, haha.
Now she's ours, and we can get our blogging done and have her for the day. I hope your weather is better than ours, it's chilly today, and will be all week, apparently. It's also really cloudy with some minutes of sun here and there.
I hope also that you are getting lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

Congrats on the sale of the motorcycle. I bet it will improve insurance costs having one less vehicle. Did mom get the things planted? My mom has been cleaning up in the yard, but hasn't taken the leaves off the garden yet. We get frost sometimes until the middle of May here. We do have lots of stuff coming up: daffodils, hyacinths, which have flowered already; some tulips that the deer didn't eat, no buds yet; peonies are beginning to grow, as are the day lilies.
Today mom had her best spring day at the center so far. She got to work in the bunny room and take care of the baby squirrels. Many of the babies have been weaned and are eating either salad (bunnies) or mash (squirrels), so mom got to clean their little cages and prepare baby food for them. She loves the babies.
It's cool and cloudy again today. Mom didn't get any work done outside yesterday because while we were blogging it started to rain. It rained on and off all day. Today was supposed to be better, but it's still pretty humid outside and a bit cool. Mom doesn't like to work out there on cool damp days. I hope you are having some good spring weather and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Thanks for the compliment! Chyna sent me about 10 hats to choose from, and I loved the purple one best.
That's a great price for geraniums. Ranunculus, at least the ones here, only bloom in the spring, and are kind of delicate, but they are gorgeous. Did you know that buttercups are ranunculus?
Wow, that chair sounds good, but way too expensive for nearly anyone.
Dinner last night was a lot of fun. They ate at a place mom had never been called the Silk Elephant. It was pretty good Thai food, but she liked the company more. She hasn't seen Jim for awhile, and last time she saw him, he was here for his aunt's funeral, so they didn't get to talk much. Last night everyone got caught up with each other over a good dinner. What could be better? And mom found out he's here for a few more days, so maybe she'll get a chance to go visit him again. He is staying at his sister's house, which isn't too far.
Today mom is hoping to get out into the yard and continue the cleanup. The guys came and mowed yesterday for the first time, so we think spring is officially started now! I hope you are having a fun day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Wow, all the horses are so impressive this year! I bet you can't wait to ride.
Sounds like mom and dad had a good day to shop, at least for a little while. My mom would do the same, though, just finish up while she's out.
The fencing around the deck is a good idea.
Thanks to Aunt Denise for my derby pic! I'm ready for the Milonga Derby now.
Today mom cleaned and fed the bats again. I know, old story. After she finished with them, she went in to the kitchen area to help label and sort the baby shower donations. All the food items need expiration dates in sharpie so everyone can see them. She dated as many cans and jars as she could, put away paper towels, toilet tissue (used for baby bird nests), latex gloves, and garbage bags as well. There seem to be a lot more donations this year.
Tonight mom will be going to dinner with a friend of hers from NY city. He's in town for a few days, and mom hasn't seen him for about a year now. It will be good to catch up. Mom thinks he retired this year, he taught Italian at the Fashion Institute for many years.

Those sprinkles are fun, they did that at the wildlife center on the floors. I like your pic! Mom cancelled the appointment at the ortho, because her pcp told her it wasn't necessary.
Thanks for the congratulations. I had a great time in the castle with Queen Booboo, we hid Easter eggs all over the place. Hope you find some, they had some neat prizes inside.
Mom had 14 for dinner today, and they began to arrive around noon. Dinner was served at 2, and there was plenty of food for everyone. Mom sent home care packages with nearly everybody, too. People were gone by 8, so we have a little time to blog. Hope your Easter day was all you wanted it to be and that you had a good celebration.

  Hi Jewels
Mom's ortho appointment is set for Tuesday. We'lllet you know what happens.
It sounds like we are all experiencing a bit of spring, and if you are not, it's only a week away! Keep thinking warm thoughts.
Mom and her sister went to a Chinese restaurant yesterday, and mom brought home a bunch of brown rice. She mixed it this morning with some Goldenfeast garden flora blend, and put it in the fridge for those of us who eat that stuff. You know I don't, because it's not apples, grapes, or broccoli, so it won't pass my beak.
This morning mom cleaned some of the outdoor raptor aviaries and the RVS room at the center. As well as the usual bats, raccoons, and ground hog, the education turtles were in there too! Staff decided it was too cold for them in their usual place, so they got moved into the RVS room, where it is small and easier to keep them warm. They have a heating pad, a regular light and an infra red light to help them. Mom was sure surprised to see turtles in the RVS room, though.
Tonight she will be returning to St. Bart's for fish dinners for her neighbor and herself. He enjoys them, and mom usually does, too. She might get shrimp tonight, though.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches, not to mention some sunshine. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Jewels
Well, mom didn't say anything about the bingo except that she was tired. Their table made over $1200! Mom doesn't know what they got from the gate yet, but that was a good day of work. Yesterday's tours at the museum was fun, there was the cutest little 4 year old on her first tour who had a ton of questions. That always makes the tour interesting.
Today mom called off at the wildlife center to go to the emergency room. Her ankle woke her up several times during the night, so she thought it was a good idea to get it checked out. It turns out that it is osteoarthritis, which mom suspected anyway. They wrapped it up with an Ace bandage, told her to take Tylenol for the pain, and sent her home with a referral to an orthopedic group. So, after she gets done with our blogs, she will put up her feet, call the orthopedic guy, and put ice on it.
Hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. It feels like spring here! Temps in the 40s and sunny today! Hugs, Falco

  Hi Jewels
Wow, 70 degrees sounds like heaven! It's supposed to go to 47 on Tuesday, but these guys lie all the time.
Winter is nearly over, keep up your spirits. Only 14 more days to spring, and this weekend we go to DST again, so days will be a bit brighter.
Mom was at the very cold center this morning. She did the bunny room and the main aviary. The bunny room only had one bunny, so that was pretty easy, and there was a space heater in there, so it was warm. The main aviary is currently housing 11 pigeons in the large area, and 5 doves in a wooden flight cage. The pigeons are all indoors, as are the doves, with the outer door closed. Mom was grateful for that, because it meant she only had to clean the indoor part of the aviary. There are lots of things to do there when the animals are finished. Laundry had piled up a bit, so mom pitched in with that.
Tomorrow we may not be online at all. Mom is working the Biscuits Bingo, and will be gone pretty much all day long. If they let her leave early, say 2ish, we will do our blogs, but otherwise, we'll be back on Sunday. Mom is working at the museum Sunday, but there should be time for blogging before she goes.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Jewels
We love Harley's portrait, MB captures the spirit of each animal she paints or draws. Mom ordered some cards of the eagle and owl she had on FB. Congrats on the new car, bet your folks are excited!
Well, mom was supposed to go to a meeting at the museum today, but with the horrid weather conditions, she opted to stay at home. It was rain changing to snow when she got up this morning, and the temps have been falling since then. When she walked the dogs (at 10!) the salt truck was going up the street, so it's slippery. We don't have sidewalks in our plan, so mom walks on the street and was glad to see the truck. If mom goes out at all today, it will be to Mystery Lovers Book store to pick up some books she ordered last week, and to the supermarket to buy more grapes and berries for us.
I hope you are having a nicer day, less yuck on the ground, more warm in the sky. Get lots of scritches and cuddles today and stay warm. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Jewels
We saw the pic on FB. That's a sweet car!
Congratulations to Flitzer, he makes a good looking king. Please remember to vote for Booboo this month, it will be another BC first to have a rare Bali Blue mynah in the castle next month, hahaha.
Here's March, coming in like a lion! We are getting a ton of snow today. Well, not really, but it's going to snow pretty much all day long. They are predicting 5" but if it keeps up it will be more. When mom walked the dogs, it was already about 4 inches deep, and, being Sunday, the plow hasn't hit the street yet. Mom may call off work at the museum if we don't hear that truck soon. She still has to shovel the driveway, too.
The news about the center is that it may take 4 to 6 weeks for the gas lines to be fixed. There will be no heat, other than space heaters, in the building, and no hot water. I guess the good news is that it is an electric dryer, so the laundry can still be done. They just fixed the huge washer, so laundry problems should go away this week.
Mom may work on her taxes today, especially if she doesn't go to work. Her one Coursera course finishes this week, the other 2 will still go on, so her evenings are pretty much occupied. I hope you are having a good day, staying warm, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco
