  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Nice here. Not too hot and breezy too!
I'm glad I could get on BC today. Yesterday was nuts! I'm really sorry that the Milonga had to be postponed.
Mom made it to PetCo and got me the correct food this time! She also found out that Joy, the little Blue Quaker who had been there for 3 months was adopted! YAY! Well, actually she was purchased but she has a home now and mom is happy about that.
Mom picked up a new toy for McKenzie. It's a Hedgehog and she LOVES it! It's doesn't squeak but it made this funny kind of a laughing noise. Well I should say it made a funny noise because after just one day, it is now a silent Hedgehog! One day! She still LOVES it and is dragging it all over the place. She even tried to take it outside with her!
Mom got the first wave of Back to School done last night. Great time to get any stationery stuff. Mom is waiting for the little notebooks to show up. She always buys 10 of them since they drop them to 1$. We use them to write down stuff for the calendar page and other stuff mom needs to remember. There is a lot of that "needs to remember" stuff!hahahaha
I hope the day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love ya ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! McKenzie has been a bit crazy this morning. She wants to play but can't decide what to play with. She did the tennis ball for a while and then her new boo boo dog and now it's her rope. I have a feeling she wants everyday to be her birthday! Hey! Who doesn't? Mom got her a Subway kid's turkey and cheese sandwich and she loved it. Mom got veggies on the 9 grain bread and I shared that with her. It was good but I still say pizza would be better!
Mom went back to work last night and had plenty to do. She knew nothing would be done and it wasn't. Always like that but she'll have it all cleaned up tonight. Mom's first Back to School ad is on Sunday! Yeah I know! The kids haven't even been out a week yet!! It's all in the stationery department since the big Back to School area is not set up yet. They are going to set it up in a week or so and then have to move it because moms store is going through a remodel. 3 months of remodel! This will be moms 3rd remodel and they are not fun at all. The store will look very nice when it's done but they have to get through it first!
Dad is in Utah taking his 34 hour break. He had to have the windshield replaced in the truck because it was leaking!! Never heard of a leaking windshield before. At least he has insurance for it so he didn't have to pay for it.
Enjoy the day and I do hope it is just perfect!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Mom heads back to work tonight! Bummer! We had a nice time and mom says we will do it again. She is going to have a real mess when she gets there tonight but she knew that!!
Today is McKenzie's birthday. She's a year old already! This is the day dad picked for her birthday. The first vet figured she was about 6 months old when dad found her. Yesterday was a year since we lost Mandy so we didn't want to use that date so dad picked the 23rd.
She is going to get Subway for lunch since dad found her near the Subway at a truck stop in New Mexico. Mandy always got Burger King since she was found in the trash at a Burger King. If they ever find another dog I sure hope it is at a pizza place!hehehehehehe Subway is okay but pizza would be better!
I hope your day is spectacular!!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! McKenzie went walking on the other side of the complex today so no wildlife there. She doesn't seem to care. She got to say hello to a little girl and her mother so that made her happy. That dog really loves attention!
It's the last day of school here and the kids got out early. There is a group of Jr. High kids in the pool. They walked next door to Starbucks and got fancy drinks and now they are playing in the pool. They are playing Marco Polo! It was very exciting the first 5 minutes and I was cheering them on! Half an hour later I must say I'm bored with it and wish they would pick another game to play!hahahahaha
It is so awesome that the ducks come to visit your mom. Animals can tell who the good people are!! I bet the ducklings are just adorable. Mom saw a mama and her 3 babies crossing the street last week. Everyone stopped and she went right across. Jennifer got a picture of them!
I don't blame Bo for wanted to stay inside and just look out at the bunnies! It's so much more comfortable inside! It's cool that you mom grows parsley for her!!
Are your parronts going to take the boat out soon? Haven't seen too many boats around here yet but since summer just started I think that will all change!!
Have a spectacular rest of the day!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you had a wonderful day! It was pretty nice here. We have sunshine and 74 for the first day of summer! There are a few people in the pool.
We did a few things around the house today. We will probably do more tomorrow but since we are on vacation we are trying to rest and do fun things to!
Mom took McKenzie on her walk when Jennifer got home. Since the mole incident, mom has been keeping McKenzie away from fence that separates the complex from the wetland. Tonight McKenzie found a garter snake!! It was along the fence line so she wasn't close enough to hurt it. She sort of jumped back when she saw it anyway. It took off to the corner and went under the fence. Mom has decided that they will not go near the wetland area anymore!hehehehehehe Good thing it was mom and not dad cause dad is terrified of snakes!
I hope your evening is just spectacular!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are enjoying the day! Rainy day are good days to nap!! I've got blue sky with puffy clouds today. Yesterday was entirely too dark so I'm enjoying it! The weather does not seem to be cooperating with us this year!
Are the neighbors bunnies pet bunnies or outside bunnies? I bet that Bo can smell them! Has she ever been around other bunnies? I think maybe she likes being Queen of your house! I know I enjoy it! Mom was just telling dad yesterday that when Merlin and McKenzie are acting up I give them a very condescending look!!
The problem with our fridge is that everyone buys groceries and sometimes there are just too many of them in the fridge. There are drawers for the fruits and veggies but sometimes they just get shoved in on the bottom! It's all straightened out at the moment so we shall see how long that last!!!
Enjoy the day and I hope some sunshine comes your way!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I am finally getting a chance to get notes out!! YAY!! Yesterday we tried but mom kept putting her head down and going to sleep! Lack of sleep makes her so boring!!!
Been doing laundry today. Always seems to be laundry to do around here! Feathers are so much more practical than clothing! Mom is going to have to clean out the fridge again also. It didn't stay organized for very long! She went to the market this morning and got a big bag of cherries so she washed them and then could not fit them in the fridge! I'm not very fond of cherries.
McKenzie has her appointment to get spayed on July 7th. Dad will be coming home then so he'll be here to help. McKenzie will be happy to have him here since he is her most favorite human!
It's movie night for us! Popcorn and snacks and hopefully something exciting to watch!
We had thunderbooms and lightening today. The storms here would roll in, dump rain, roll out, everything dries up and then it all stars over again! We did get to see 2 rainbows! I sure hope that the winds have backed off for you guys. Is it usually so windy this time of the year? We have wind most of the time!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a fantastic day! We had a maintenance guy come over to rehang the closet door. Mom couldn't get it rehung even after watching a youtube video. Seems that when they had to dry out the carpet when the washer ran over, they hung the door upside down when they put it back up. Guess that's why the stuff at the top didn't look like what was on the youtube video. They did not fix the thermostat for the fireplace and when the lady called to tell mom they were coming over, she said something about the fridge being broken Mom told her the fridge was not broken. Then she asked about peeling paint and moisture on the ceiling! We don't have that either so I guess the got the work orders all messed up. Hope they remember to come do the fireplace. We don't need it right now but mom turns it on at least once a month to keep the dust from building up.
I sat in the corner of my play cage and kept an eye on the guy. He seemed nice. Said he has a German Shepard mix at home but it's an older dog. Merlin got locked up because he was being nosy! McKenzie was on her leash.
McKenzie got her first grown up food this morning. Of course she ate it with no problems. I don't think there is much food on the planet that McKenzie would turn down!hahahahahaha She will be a year old in about a week so it's time to get her off the puppy food!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's spectacular!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you had a wonderful day! I knew school was almost done since Cookie has been counting down. I don't know who is more excited about it ending, Cookie or the kids! I think maybe Cookie.
It is so exciting to think of you and Bo at the window watching the bunnies! I bet that is so much fun. I only have a few sparrows and crows that come by here. I see the Canadian Geese fly over when they are going to the wetland across the street but they never come very close to my building. Mom did get to see some of them with their babies at a pond down in town. The moat around the building has not been very full this year so I have not seen any of the ducks that live across the street. They are not friendly like your moms ducks and just float around the moat as long as no one goes near them.
We did cleaning and laundry today. Mom is washing the bedding and it takes longer since it doesn't seem to dry the first time around. I suspect we will be doing laundry again tomorrow.
You must be so very proud of your dad for doing all that painting. Mom has the bathrooms to paint but doesn't know when she will get to it. She has been doing a little bit of the prepping work everyday but still needs to sand where dad put the new toilet paper holder in. When he filled up the holes from the old one he was not too neat about it. She has the holes filled in and has been washing the walls. She will probably start the painting on her days off next week.
I do hope you enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you had a great day! It was still hot here but clouds are rolling in now and it's cooling off nicely.
It's our weekend right now so we are having a movie night! We are watching Jurassic World tonight. I just love this movie. Our ancestors were so awesome! Popcorn is good too!
Not much else going on today. Dad got off okay but ended up coming back by the house on his way out of town. He left some cable for something here! It's always something!hehehehe

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

  Hello Captain~
Hope you are having a great day! Nice around here so far. We have been getting a few things done around the house and watching House Hunters International. Very interesting!
Mom was on the phone with her sister for a long time and McKenzie does not like mom being on the phone. She has been crawling all over mom and barking! She is very annoying! Merlin is trying to get in on the action and wants to sit in moms lap! They are both so needy!!!
They finished the barriers on the street so now all that is left is line painting. It's suppose to rain over the weekend so they will probably get it done soon. It was fun to watch but I think everyone is glad that all those orange cones are gone.
I sure hope your parronts have a great time boating. It's going to rain here this weekend but I doubt that will stop anyone who wants to launch their boats. If you wait for the rain to stop up here you would never get to do anything!
We have a flag in our living room all the time. There is no where for us to have one outside since we live in an apartment!
Enjoy the rest of the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~
I hope the day is going great! It was boring around here today but I enjoyed it. I spent time with mom while McKenzie and Merlin took naps. They take naps just about the same time everyday so mom and I can plan playtime!
The construction dudes are back and putting the barriers on the roads. They had 2 big trucks with the cement barriers on them. The put them down and then painted them yellow! They didn't finish the whole street so I imagine they will be back tomorrow. It was fun to watch them! After that all that is left is painting the lines. No more beeping trucks after that! Thank Goodness!!!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It was really pretty this morning but now the sky is getting dark and I think we are going to have rain the rest of the day.
We are finishing up laundry which is pretty boring. Mom says is necessary! I suppose!
My play cage was all cleaned up this morning when I came out so I am going to have to spend the rest of the day redecorating it. I don't understand why mom can't appreciate how hard I work at making all those lovely piles of wood!! I know she wasn't too happy about me trying to feed the puppy again. I figured that if those pellets are good for me they have to be good for the puppy too! Right? I am keeping the good stuff for myself I must admit, but McKenzie seemed to appreciate what I shared with her!
Mom put Alice in Wonderland on for me to watch. It's a pretty old movie because I don't see Johnny Depp anywhere and there is no CGI. Guess I'm spoiled from all the new special effects out these days!
Are those chipmunks staying away from Bo's garden now? Up here people complain about the moles. When McKenzie caught that one and mom put it back in it's hole, a lot of people said she should have let McKenzie kill it! That's sick! Mom would never allow McKenzie to kill anything and the mole has a right to live here too! Hope your mom can find a way to keep the chipmunks away.
Enjoy the day!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day!! I'm really sorry I didn't get around much this weekend. Mom was trying to rest to get rid of the pink eye/cold.
Unfortunately moms eyes started bothering her last night at work. She had her drops with her and used them. They have been waxing the floors for the past two nights so it may just be the fumes from that. Mom stayed as far away as she could but had to walk through the area to get to the office. Tonight the store is closing two hours early so that the system can be shut down for updates. It won't be back online until 4 am so mom will be helping the freight guys.
Mom is trying to rest during the day but I think that "I need to rest" translates to "let's chase the cat" in dog language. I have been a very good nurse and sit right next to mom and keep her company! She only has tonight and then it's our weekend again! YAY!
I have taken over the Kissing Booth for the next 2 weeks. It's all about food!! Come on over and have a bite to eat! We will be doing all sorts of great snacks!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's spectacular!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! Sorry I didn't get a note out yesterday but mom has pink eye and a cold and feels miserable. She didn't go to work last night. The pink eye stated in the right eye only but when she woke up last night it was both eyes. Her vision was pretty blurry so she figured she had better not try driving until they cleared up some. They feel better today but she still looks really weird! She is using the drops and it shouldn't be too long before the redness goes away.
I have to say that I have been an excellent nurse! McKenzie and Merlin are not being so good. They both want attention all the time! I guess they still have not figured out who is the favorite around here!
Merlin got behind the washer this morning and mom had to pull it out to get him out! Right now they are both taking naps so I have a chance to get some notes done!
We are getting some laundry done and George and Gracie need to be cleaned out again. Dad bought the wrong filters and they are not working very well. Mom will have to pick some up next time she is down in town.

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's very spring like here and I have been enjoying the sunshine!
We did chores yesterday since mom was off. Mostly going through old mail and straightening up the linen closet. Mom got some shelf liner at the dollar store and lined all the shelves in there. It looks very nice and we even found more stuff to donate to the Goodwill!!
We really should have gotten on BC earlier than we did but we had no idea they were going to take the site down last night. It would be really nice if they gave us a "heads up" but I suppose it is not important to them. All the sites were down so they must have been doing maintenance on the server.
It's back to work for mom tonight so we are getting the rest of the laundry done. My play cage was all cleaned when I came out this morning and I have new toys also. I guess I am going to be a busy bird today!!
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's just spectacular! Give Bo a big HELLO from me! I hope she is having a fun day too!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Another pretty sunny one here!
I think they have finished with the road construction! YAY! It took 2 weeks but everything has been paved now. They still have to put the barriers back into the center and paint the stripes but I'm sure that will not be as loud as a steam roller! They had most of the road shut down last night so mom had to cut through the markets parking lot to get home!
Mom loved Captain America Civil War. Captain America has always been moms favorite. She admire the way he does the right thing even if it's not the easiest or popular thing. He is an honorable character!
They did not get back until Midnight. McKenzie did great in her crate even though she got put in there 2 hours early. Mom got us up when she got home and took McKenzie for a nice walk. Then she made us a waffle! We had a Midnight Waffle Party!! We only stayed up for half an hour and then we all went back to bed. It was fun but since I'm a bit sleepy today, I don't think we will be doing it much!
Mom has to go to PetCo today to get McKenzie her Science Diet and some new toys! That puppy goes through toys almost as fast as I do! I'm impressed!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Turned out to be a sunny one here.
It's movie night so I guess we are all going to bed early. Mom is taking McKenzie on a very long walk before so she will be tired out. Mom said we could get up for a while when she gets home. They are going to see Captain America Civil War.
We didn't do much today. The kitchen always seems to need cleaning and there is always laundry. Tomorrow we will be straightening out the pantry yet again! Seems like that always needs to be done too!
Road work continues at night. Hard to tell what they are doing but the left lanes are still not paved. They put some sort of pink canvas looking stuff in holes and piled asphalt on top. That part was paved over when mom drove this morning. Hopefully the left lanes will be paved tonight and that should be it!
Have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I can't believe I'm BOTD! I am so excited and so grateful to all my friends here. It is still such an honor to be picked from all the awesome birds here to have a day in the spotlight!
We have had a crazy morning already! It was pretty loud last night since they were paving the road across the street. Who knew that paving included pounding? I didn't! It was the stream roller I guess! Mom cranked the radio up but you could still feel a bit of shaking. I squawked a few times and Merlin spent most of the night in the window watching it all! McKenzie slept through it all!! They were done by 4 am but I think I'll be grabbing a nap later!
We have a wetland that runs the length of the complex. It is fenced in but it's just a plank fence and not totally to the ground. When mom was walking McKenzie this morning, McKenzie stuck her head under the fence that encloses the wetland and pulled out a Mole! Thank goodness mom has been working on "drop" with her because when mom screamed, she dropped it! The poor thing was flailing around and so scared! McKenzie knew she had done something bad cause she flattened out on the walkway and looked guiltily at mom!
Mom locked McKenzie in the car and grabbed the car towel. She picked up the little Mole and checked him out. Thankfully he wasn't hurt! He kept flailing and growled at mom! Mom crawled against the fence and found his hole and set him down there. He dug a little and then popped back down in the hole. Mom told McKenzie that there will be no hunting allowed! We read later on that coyotes dig up moles for food. Dad thinks any kind of dog would do it and that is probably true. Obviously there will be no more walking anywhere near the fence! I don't think moms heart could take another incident like that!hahahahaha She was so scared that McKenzie had killed it.
Come on over to the castle today! Mikey and Kacey have had Lizzy and Chipper prepare a wonderful luncheon for us! I can't wait to see you!!!
Enjoy your day!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you had a wonderful day! We did the chores we never got done yesterday. Kind of boring but mom put Minions on for me while she was cleaning the kitchen! I love those squeaky yellow guys!
McKenzie was a bit rowdy this afternoon. She thinks that the cat is going to play with her like another puppy would but we all know that is not going to happen. He sits and whacks at her and whines for mom to come pick him up. I think he is doing that on purpose to that mom will pick him up. He certainly could get up on something, like he usually does, but I think he just wants mom to rescue him!
The road construction is continuing at night. The trucks just stared showing up. Mom put the radio on a bit louder last night so we wouldn't have to listen to the beeping when the trucks back up. Mom was hoping they would be farther along at this point. They still have not paved across the street from us so maybe tonight. Then they will start tearing up our side of the street! The parts they have finished do look very nice and are really smooth to drive on!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! }

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day. Cool, wet and windy here. Mom had to put the heat back up a bit in the bedroom to make it nice and cozy for me! Perhaps she should not have put away all that winter stuff!Hehehehehehe It was like daring Mother Nature to bring back the cold!
They have been repaving in my neighborhood. They got onto my street last night. They took a big backhoe and smashed the cement divider that goes down the center of the street! It was noisy but over quickly! They just smashed it and swept it up. Now there is just a yellow line there. Guess they'll be back after the weekend to pave it. Mom left for work right after they did it and she said it runs all the way up to the freeway~about a mile up the street! They seem to be moving pretty quickly!!
I hope the day is just fabulous!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! It's only 80 here today so that is tolerable! There is a nice breeze and mom has the window open so I'm enjoying that. My cage was all cleaned out again this morning so I've been working on redecorating.
McKenzie had an upset tummy this morning. Ian bought her a rawhide bone at Petco yesterday and it did not agree with her. Mom will stick with the Dingo bones since they have never upset her tummy. Petco only had the tiny Dingo bones so mom will pick up the more appropriate sized ones at her work. She is feeling fine now and wants to eat everything in sight! Just like normal!hehehehehe
We have been doing chores most of the day. Mom washed the winter jackets and is going to hang them in the hall closet. She got the stove scrubbed and wants to get some things done in her bedroom later. She will have to wait for Jennifer to get home so that she can occupy McKenzie while mom and I go in the bedroom. If McKenzie is in the bedroom you have to watch her all the time because she likes to grab books and try to chew them up! That is a huge NO NO in this house! I don't get to do it so she can't either!
I hope the day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Captain~
I hope your day was wonderful! Still warm up here. We are not use to being in the upper 80's this time of the year. It's not so bad in the apartment. Mom has the windows open and the fan going so we are all comfortable. Suppose to go back to our normal 60's tomorrow. Lots of mosquito's out tonight. I wonder if it gets cooler again if it will kill them off??
Dad is in Yuma. He was in Indio CA yesterday and saw a stray dog. She was afraid of everyone so dad bought her a roast beef sandwich and threw it over to where she was. He asked the guy in the store to call the ASPCA and let them know she was there. She had a collar on so maybe she just got lost. I hope it's not another "dump the dog" like with our McKenzie.
Oh mom knows how doing more physical stuff can make you tired. She did freight last night and was pretty tired when she got home. She walks all over the place but was not use to picking up boxes and hauling stuff all over the place! She enjoys the walking better!
Sounds like things are very busy outside your window. We have had the Canadian Geese flying over every morning and evening. They seem to move between wetlands all day. They are so pretty so see flying in the sky! They are noisy too! I admire that in a bird!hehehehe
I hope your evening is just perfect!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day.
Mom is having one of those days where she can not get anything done! I blame it all on the dog!hehehehehe Mom says there is blame to share!
I have been throwing pieces of wood out to McKenzie and the dork tries to eat them!! Mom asked me to stop it but I don't think it's my fault if the dog is a dope!
When I got bored with that game I decided it was time to rip the paper up on the bottom of the cage. That always gets the puppy running!! I think she wants to rip paper up also. Mom finally had to put her on the leash to keep her away from my cage. Merlin started howling for food so mom filled up his dry food bowl. He took a few bites and then walked over and started whacking the dog. Guess he was jealous because McKenzie was paying attention to me! The turtles even got into it by pushing their filter over!! Mom said something about needing a vacation!hehehehehehe
Another beautiful day here. Suppose to be nice again tomorrow. I like having the window open and all the sunshine! I hope you have an awesome day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Captain~
I hope you had a great day. It was nice here. Mom and I did chores and laundry. We cleaned out a bunch of drawers in the bathroom. There was some old stuff there that we threw out and then checked our first aid kit to make sure it was filled up. Mom hates it when she needs a band aid and there are none left! Mom went to the market across the street to pick up some food for Merlin and return the movies from yesterday. After that she was home the rest of the day.
You know you never need to worry about not being able to blog!! I know all is well with you and you just write when you can.
It is so awesome how much the kids loved your mom's story! I'm sure it made your mom feel awesome! She is awesome! She should be very proud of herself!
I guess you guys are late getting spring! Sure hope it shows up soon so that your parronts can enjoy their boat. They have summer to look forward to also and I bet it will be just beautiful then!
Enjoy the evening!!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Another quiet one around here. I've been busy trying to get the puppy to come close enough so that I can give her a nip! Mom keeps telling me no but McKenzie is so trusting and really wants to come closer. Mom told me it wasn't nice to tease her like that so I'm back to chewing some toys for now.
Mom managed to break the little toe on her left foot so she is not walking very quickly today. She doesn't even remember how she did it! She walks into things all the time so she probably banged it on something yesterday! She is a real klutz!!
Enjoy your day and I hope it's spectacular! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. Very pretty here still and I'm enjoying the sunshine.
Not much going on here today. McKenzie is taking a nap so we are trying to get the notes done before she wakes up. Jennifer is trying to finish her book for the book club meeting tomorrow. It's called Night Circus. Mom tried reading it a few years ago but never really got into the story. It was a bit slow but she may try it again when Jennifer is done. Jennifer hasn't formed an opinion yet so it will be interesting to see how the book club meeting goes.
Mom has read two of the Library's book club selection. She was okay with "Wild" but absolutely loved "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet". It was a wonderful story about a Chinese boy and Japanese girl who become friends in Seattle during WWII.
I should never let mom get started on books!! This note would be going on for days and days!!hehehehehe
Enjoy your day and I hope it's just spectacular!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Very pretty up here again. We are suppose to be reaching 80 tomorrow. A bit early for that but it's only one day. The 70's are perfectly lovely and I think we should just have 70 year round!hehehehehe
I really enjoyed the new Star Wars. There was lots of stuff blowing up and you know that I love that. I think dad liked it too. Mom, Ian and Jennifer had already seen it at the movie theater but said there were things they missed the first time.
I have had a lovely afternoon hanging out with mom. I got to have her all to myself. McKenzie is gone for a spa day at the groomers. First time she has been there. She was putting on her cuteness when mom dropped her off and everyone fell in love with her. She really is a sweet puppy and is very nice to everyone she meets.
I got to run around the living room and that was lots of fun. I got picked up when I started to chew on the carpet! Go figure!
Dad and Ian have gone to pick up McKenzie. She just had a bath and they are going to file her nails also. She has very sharp nails.
The rest of the day will be spent doing the chores we should have done earlier!hahahahaha Playing was much more fun and the chores will still be there later.
Enjoy your day!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a fabulous day! Pretty nice around here still but the rain will be back tonight. I can not complain since so many places are still having snow in April!
Took a shower this afternoon and McKenzie thought I was playing. She jumped up on the front of my play cage! Mom grabbed her and told her no! Dad said it would have been the perfect time for me to use my new "McKenzie No" phrase but I was too busy trying to get over to bite her!
Dad has his Fender guitar hanging on the wall between the living room and the kitchen. It's been there forever! He walked by and strummed it and McKenzie went nuts. She growled and barked! Mom told her it was nothing scary but she does not like it. Dad tried to show it to her but she kept growling. It's back on the wall now but she is keeping an eye on it. She is a very strange puppy!
Uncle Chuck called us this morning. We were surprised. He is doing okay. Mom posted a note on the calendar page and on the BC community page on Facebook.
I hope your day is just stellar!!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Captain~
I hope you had a great day! It's very pretty up here. The wind is still blowing so it doesn't feel as warm as I'd like but it was still nice.
Mom had lots of cleaning to get caught up on so we did that most of today. Still have things we want to get done but it's our weekend so we have tomorrow also.
I'm an Auntie!! Moms sister canary hatched 3 chicks! There is still one egg to go and I've got my toes crossed the little guy show up soon! Moms sister is rather freaked out and has been doing a lot of reading up on canary babies! I think they'll be just fine.
Uncle Chuck is at the rehab center now. They don't have phones in the rooms so his sister is suppose to bring him his cell phone.
I hope you have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful Easter Sunday! McKenzie and I shared a blueberry muffin for breakfast and it was yummy. We don't really celebrate Easter around here since mom always has to work and Ian is still at work. Maybe we will do something when mom is off this week. She did get a couple of vegan chocolate bars and will share them with dad, Ian and Jennifer. I think the muffin was a much better idea!
Jennifer just got back from her sisters house. She went down on Friday for a birthday party for her brother in law. He and Ian share a birthday. They announced the sex of the new baby and Maddie is getting a little sister!! I think Maddie is very excited. I know I can't wait to meet her. They don't have a name picked out yet but I'm sure it will be great.
We talked to Uncle Chuck a while ago and he is doing okay. There is a complete update on from RaneBeau on the calendar page. Jenny and Lalo have gone over to visit with Aunt Denise and the flock which is just wonderful. I know Uncle Chuck feels much better knowing that they are safe and have lots of company.
Enjoy your day and I hope it's a very special Easter for everyone!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! We did some chores and then mom had to run over to the market to pick up a few things. Dad is making home made pizza tonight. It's Ian's birthday and they both love that pizza. I'll be getting a nice piece of crust!
Nothing else interesting going on here. It's been a mostly quite day and that is just fine!
Hope your evening is just wonderful!
