  Hello Captain~~
Hope the day is going well. Seems like Mother Nature was trying to make up for any missed rain in just a few hours!! It's been like that in a few cities this summer! Usually it is me who is talking about the rain! We don't have any to talk about!

Cooler here also and it's very nice. We cleaned out George and Gracie this morning. We were a day late on getting that done since yesterday was all about getting dad ready to go. He is off to Spokane, Idaho and then Nevada.
The bad mom forgot to get me an apple so she needs to stop at the store after dropping Jennifer off!! She tried to make up for it by giving me a tiny vanilla cookie. It's just not an apple!! I did eat it to keep my strength up until I get my apple!
Enjoy the day!!

Hope you are having a fabulous day! I have to make my note short today because mom is going to drive up to Kent. It is not very far away but coming home she will have to take a detour and that might take some time! She might even get lost which is usual for her!hehehehehe It's a clear day and she can see the mountain so she will know which direction to head!!
Enjoy the day!

  Hello Captain~
Hope the day is going great! It's going to be very hot here today. Not usual for us but it does happen once in a while. It's a once in a while day!Hehehehehe
Mom put the portable A/C on at 10 am. She says she does not want it to get so hot that it will take hours to cool the room down.
The portable A/C sits in the corner of the dining room when we are not using it. McKenzie must not have noticed it before because she is afraid of it! Mom put it by the window in the living room because you have to vent it. McKenzie's toy basket is right next to it so she got her toys and moved them across the room. She was eyeing the A/C the entire time! It was really funny!! She wants to make sure they stay safe!
Back to work for mom tonight. Weekends are just too short!!
Ian had so much stuff in that closet that he couldn't even hang up clothes. Some of it is very old toys. Mom never made him get rid of his things. She figured there would come a day when he would do it on his own. Seems like that day came!

  Hello Captain~
Hard to believe BC is still here. I'm not complaining.
It was warm today and will be even warmer tomorrow. We got up to 88 today and tomorrow and Saturday it will be 98. Guess we will be getting the portable A/C set up for a few days.
Dad is home but he has an abscessed tooth and is not feeling well. He went to the doctor yesterday and got antibiotics and pain medicine. He still looks like a chipmunk but it is getting better.
Mom went down to the post office this morning and then took stuff over to the Goodwill store. Ian has been on vacation this week and cleaned out his closet. He had a lot of things to get rid of. After they dropped that stuff off mom, Ian and Jennifer had lunch at Chipotle. Mom likes that place. They brought dad back a burrito bowl. It is easier for him to eat because there is no big tortilla to try to chew.
Lots of kids in the pool today and it is cute to begin with but then they get too loud and I get grumpy! Mom put the TV on for a while and we watched a documentary about a lady named Vivian Maier who took thousands of really beautiful photographs but never printed any while she was alive. A young man found them all when he bought some boxes from an auction. He had no idea who she was so he set out to figure it all out. She worked as a nanny and seemed to be a very eccentric lady. It was interesting but no action to keep me interested.
Nearly time for mom to take McKenzie on her last walk and then tuck us all in. I bet your parronts can not wait to go see the granddaughter! I hope her 5th birthday is just spectacular!
Enjoy the evening and please give Bo a big hello from me!

  Hello Captain~
Hope the day was wonderful. It is probably a good idea not to give Bo the bottle if she is going to destroy it. Better safe than sorry and a little water won't hurt her anyway. Must be so funny to see her climbing into the bowl to get a drink! Mom had to get a bigger water bowl for Merlin. She found out that cats do not like getting their whiskers wet so she got him a larger glass bowl since he didn't seem to want to drink from the smaller one. He was going to McKenzie's water bowl for drinks! Cats are so strange!
Your mom is just an awesome lady and that is why Spirit and the ducks feel comfortable around her! Animals know when a person is good!
Mom got her car tab today. It's red this year so it matches the month sticker! For a year at least, they match! It was surprisingly quick also. She did not have to have the smog test this year so that saved a lot of time also.
It's always a good idea to plan out what you are going to take on a trip. Mom went to Hawaii when she was 17 and forgot to bring sandals! They cost a lot more over there!! From then on she always made a list of what to take and checked things off as she packed. We know your mom is going to have so much fun and she'll get to see Molly too! I'm sure that is always fun!
Enjoy the evening my friend!

  Hello Captain~
Hope you are having a lovely day!
Oh Bo sounds so funny! I wonder why she doesn't like the bottle? Maybe it's just what she is use to. I don't blame her for not liking the towel! I have a pink one that we use when I go to the vet. I like that one but not others. I lunge at towels! Mom always forgets and has one on her shoulder when she is doing dishes! She has to take it off before she brings me a snack or I will lunge at her.
It was cool this morning and raining. It's going to get warm again towards the end of the week. It certainly has been a strange summer but since I don't like heat I will not complain.
Mom had a few errands to run but she wasn't gone for long. She picked Ian up and then went over to the bank. It's only a few blocks from where he works so she waited until he got off so she wouldn't have to drive into town twice. Tomorrow she will have to go and get the new sticker for the car. She won't wait for Ian to get off to do that since the traffic will be horrible. It's cool enough that she can take McKenzie with her. It doesn't take too long anyway. She always goes and gets it since it got lost in the mail once. Up here the place where you get the car tabs is private. The place where you get your license is run by the state. Don't know why there are two separate places.
I do hope you all enjoy the day! Only one more night for mom and then we have our weekend!! I'm already working on a list of things I want to do!hehehehe

Hope the day is going well and we hope your parronts got to do some boating!!
It rained here! Been a while since we have had any. It's not very warm so it doesn't feel icky and sticky!
Mom has been scrubbing the bathroom this morning. McKenzie has been supervising. I am not allowed anywhere near it when she is using soaps. McKenzie seems to be as afraid of the mop as she is of the broom. Mom keeps showing them to her and telling her they are nothing scary.
It is so cool that you can chat with Molly on Face Time!! All this technology is so amazing!
We are very happy she is enjoying school. There are so many great experiences to be had there and we hope she always enjoys it. I bet she has made friends already! Mom use to laugh when Ian was little because he was very concerned about being on time. He would be ready for school 2 hours before school started! Dad said by the time he was in high school he would be over that but he wasn't! Ian likes to be punctual! Dad on the other hand can't make it anywhere on time! His whole family was like that unfortunately.
I'm off to finish ripping up the phone book mom gave me yesterday! McKenzie is still jealous that I have one and she does not! Mom told her I do not try to eat the paper like she does!! She has to stick to her kong bone and ropes!! Poor dog!hahahaha
Enjoy the day and please give Bo and Sailor a big hello from me!

Hope you guys are enjoying the day even if it is a wet one. It's good that the boat can stay in the water for that long. I imagine in the summer months there must be lots of people out there! When Ian was little the family use to go camping on Labor Day when everyone else was heading home! Couldn't do it when he got to school age but it was nice when he was little.
Nothing going on here today. I have a phone book to rip up but I got bored with that pretty quick. McKenzie seems to be jealous that I have one and she doesn't!!
We are very happy that Molly is enjoying school! Mom always did too. She could read and write before she even went. She got her first library card when she was 5 and was excited that the school had a library too! Mom says you can never read enough books! I love having book read to me! Mom gets me pictures books and I love them. Jennifer will read whatever she is reading at the moment to me but her books don't have pictures!!
I hope you all enjoy the weekend!

Hope the day is going well. Do you suppose the coyote came around looking for water? We have heard that sometimes wild animals will go places they don't usually go to find water. I just hope he stays out of your yard! When we lived in the desert in California they would come down out of the hills on Thursdays because that was trash day!
We saw the picture of the grand on Facebook! She is so cute! Her name is Molly, correct? We hope she really enjoys school and has nothing but positive experiences there!
Sounds like your mom really has her hands full at the moment! It is nice of her to house sit for her friends. I'm sure it makes the trip more enjoyable when you don't need to worry about your house! Is she at least going to get some boat time this weekend?
Seems like this summer has flown by! It's already half over and it really doesn't seem like that long ago that we were all waiting for it to get here! It's been a fun summer I think!
You enjoy your day and I am praying that the coyote goes back to where it lives and leaves your yard alone!!

Hope your day is going great! Nice here right now. We're going to get into the 80's today but that is not horrible!
BC sure has turned into a ghost town. It's a surprise everyday to see it still here! I'm going to be lurking around until they toss me out!
Mom has been working on cleaning out paperwork this morning. She got new file folders so she is going through the old ones and tossing the stuff we don't need. Most of the utilities and the bank stuff is all online now so that cut the clutter way down.
Mom has to make a trip to the market today to get Merlin more food. She picked up McKenzie's stuff yesterday and some lovely fresh fruit but forgot the cat food! We are blessed to have a market across the street.
Back to work for mom tonight. She is not thrilled! I think it's time to start thinking about taking some time off!
I hope your day is just wonderful!

Hope your day is going great! Nothing exciting going on here unless you find laundry exciting!
I've been busy with a new toy and mom gave McKenzie a new rope. She played with it for a little while but is more interested in getting attention from everyone. Mom got her to play tug of war for a bit but McKenzie cheats! She tries to nip at moms hand to get her to drop the rope!
Got cloudy overnight so it's nice and cool this morning. Just clouds, no rain. It will probably get muggy later on but I have my fan and I'll be fine.
It's so exciting that your parronts are going to visit the grand at the end of August!! And your brother being promoted is too awesome! We know the whole family is so proud of him. I know everyone is going to have so much fun!!
Wish I could come and meet Laura. Cookie is always talking about her! She sounds like a lovely lady!!
Off to supervise the laundry! It's a boring job but some bird has to do it!
Enjoy the day!

Hope your day is going well! It's been noisy here with the gardeners coming early and an apartment in the next building getting the carpets cleaned. I suppose they want to get everything done before it gets hot. Yep! It's going to get hot. We still have a nice breeze so it doesn't feel bad at all. Mom has been leaving the window open when she goes to work so we won't get hot at night. She turned the radio up to help drown out the traffic noise. It's just something you have to put up with to keep cool!
Dad called from Wilkes Barre PA today. He was in Connecticut and they tried to route him through New York City and he told them no way! Too much traffic. So he gets to PA and there is nothing but road work!hahahahahaha He is on his way to Ohio. He'll get there! He should know that the summer time is every states favorite time to do road work!
Enjoy your day and stay cool!! Are the Parronts going to get to go on the boat this weekend??

Oh my Goodness!! We didn't mean to wake up your mom with that beep!!! I've been lurking around BC for the last 10 days but I thought only a few birds were still coming on. I intend to stay until they throw me out!hehehehehe
We have been learning to use the youpet.com site. It's not really difficult but there are 3 ways to leave a note and we have been trying to decide which way will work best for us.
We saw the pictures of the grand on Facebook! She is so cute and it looks like everyone had such a good time!
We heard about the thunder booms you have been having. It is horrible to have heat and wet! Much too icky!
Everything is fine around here. McKenzie is healing up well and the fur is starting to grow back in. She got the stitches out last week. As soon as the fur has grown back in she will be going to doggy school to learn socialization. She is horrible on the leash. It is better when mom gets the harness on her but when McKenzie has to go there isn't enough time to harness her so mom just uses the collar. Mom is praying that a socialization class will help.
I hope Bo's garden survived the flood!! Your mom worked really hard on that and it would be so sad if the rain ruined it all!!
Enjoy the day buddy!

I'm still here lurking around!hehehehehe Not sure if BC is closing down anytime soon or not. We got an email saying the new bird page on petcha will be up in August so I don't know if the site is staying until then or not!!
Nothing exciting going on here. Been a bit warmer but not too horrible. We were in the middle 80's today. Mom had the window and balcony door open so it doesn't feel bad in here at all!

I hope you are having a wonderful day. Very pretty here and not too warm.
Washer broke yesterday so we are waiting for someone to come fix it. It may be Monday before anyone comes over. Luckily most of the laundry is done.
My play cage was all cleaned up when I got up this morning! I did sort of toss my bowl of oatmeal around but since I had eaten most of it the mess wasn't that bad! Now I am working on some toys in order to redecorate the bottom of my cage. Mom said she had to pull it out and sweep behind it! She said I had been busy!! Well of course I have been busy! I'm the bird and it's my job!
Mom bought McKenzie a stuffed alligator yesterday and she has already ripped it open! Mom is praying there comes a time when McKenzie does not chew so much! Birdsonally I don't think there is anything wrong with chewing!!
I hope your day is fabulous! Can't believe we only have one more day and then no BC. Doesn't seem real yet!

Finally I got over here!!! It sometimes gets crazy around here when dad is home. McKenzie is crazy just about everyday but it is worse when dad is here. She and Merlin both want all his attention all the time! They can be such a pain sometimes.
I'm sorry it got so hot at your house. Guess there is going to be hot temps all the way up the East Coast today. You would love it here since we are only in the 70's and it is very clear. I like seeing the blue sky outside my window.
Nothing interesting going on here today. Mom wanted to get the turtle tank cleaned yesterday but did not so it will be done today. She has a couple of loads of laundry to finish up also.
I can't see any of your gallery pictures right now so I will have to come back to see if you put the pictures up. You can put extra pictures up on youpet also. So far I like it. Merlin even has a friend over there. McKenzie hasn't gotten any notes yet but maybe she will!!

I hope you are having a fun day! I see they say that it is exciting news! Exciting to who? Not exciting to us since they are destroying something we have worked to build up over all these years. We do have the memories and we will still have each other.
I put a page up on YouPet.com. If you haven't been there yet, check it out! It's fun! The Petcha is going to have a page for birds and you will be able to leave messages according to the email I got. I only got the email from the guy I emailed. The general announcement came in the forum of the newsletter. If we can get the Milonga and other activities going on Facebook it will be okay. I rather like the YouPet and mom put McKenzie and Merlin up with me. I already have a dog and cat as friends! I think the cat is really into it cause she has the most friends on the site. When I signed up yesterday all 12 of the newest members were from BC!hahahaha When you add a picture it takes a while for it to show up so don't worry about that.
Mom and dad went out to lunch for dads birthday. It's on Saturday but he won't be here. Now they are home and mom is off tonight so I hope we get to do something fun. She still has to pick up Ian and Jennifer and then go by the library. She'll go look at books while Ian and Jennifer sit on the bench outside to catch Pokemon. Yep! They are playing that game on their phone. It is rather like a scavenger hunt! They seem to be enjoying it.
She will have to take dad to get his truck later since he is getting a new seat put in tomorrow. Guess the old one was making his back hurt!!
I hope you enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope the day is going great! Sorry for the general type note today but mom has to go pick dad up in an hour so our time is limited.
We posted the reply from Petcha on the calendar page. They say there is going to be a bird part to it. Crystal said they were going to move the stuff from BC over there. Move what I wonder? We have everyones email I think and we think everyone has ours. We are in the BC directory also. We will stay in touch! You have all become part of our lives and we could not imagine a world without you!!!
It is day 2 of McKenzie's recovery and if she did not have that scar running down her tummy you would never know she had surgery! She has been running up and down the hall, jumping on the bed and chasing Merlin! That was just when mom let her out of the crate this morning so they could take their walk!!!! Mom is going crazy trying to keep her quiet. She is not wearing the cone and has not bothered with her stitches. Mom gave her another pain pill so hopefully she will get sleepy and go to sleep. Mom knew this was going to happen even though so many people said that being spayed would calm her down. McKenzie does not have the laid back dog personality!
Enjoy the day and the time we have left here! I know we will figure out something.

I hope your day is going great!! We are being quiet around here so that McKenzie can sleep and recover from her surgery. She did really well and hasn't had to have a cone on yet. She seems to be more bothered by her leg where they put the IV in. She didn't eat much last night but this morning she had her regular breakfast. I shared my pancakes with her too. She has to go back in a couple of weeks to get the stitches out.
Merlin was very upset when mom came home yesterday morning without McKenzie! Who would have thought that he would miss her? He fussed the entire day until mom brought her back. He is such a contrary cat!
Today is Jennifer's birthday! Mom and Ian got her gift cards since she likes those the best! When mom dropped her off at work all the kids at the daycare were lined up by the fence and sang Happy Birthday to her! It was so cute! Think she was a bit embarrassed by the attention!
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's just spectacular!

Hope you are having a lovely day! Power washer guy came back and sprayed my window again!!! McKenzie went to defend it for me!! Mom had to put her on her leash until he was done. Then the gardeners came and used the blower thingy to clean up the sidewalks cause all the gook that was on the building was on the sidewalks!! I am hoping the rest of the day is peaceful!
Mom switched her schedule so she will be working tonight and be home with McKenzie on Thursday night. She will be going in an hour early tonight since she had to have McKenzie checked in at the vet at 7 am. Sure would have been easier if dad could have made it home.
McKenzie and Merlin broke the coffee table this morning! They have been working on it for a while and mom figured it wasn't going to survive! There is one at moms work that has a metal base and wood top so mom is considering that. Guess we are going to have to decorate with industrial items until McKenzie gets older. Mom doesn't like industrial!!!!
Cookie tells me that Laura is going to be staying with him for a couple of days while his mom and dad are checking out their summer place! I hear that she is a wonderful lady and I know she comes over and watches you and Bo too!! Hope Cookie doesn't get too bored while Laura is teaching Summer School!!

I hope you had a wonderful day! It wasn't too bad here. Mostly cloudy the whole day and windy too! Not too warm which was nice since we had to keep the windows closed due to the power washing.
Last night wasn't too bad even though it was really noisy and lasted a long time. Non of us got freaked out at all. Mom left the radio turned up for us ans we slept okay.
McKenzie had to go get her blood work done this morning. It went fine and they were only there about half an hour. They gave McKenzie a treat and everyone made a fuss over her. She loves going to the vet!hahahahahaha We shall see how she feels about it after Thursday when she gets spayed.
Dad is not going to make it home until Saturday so mom is going to try to work tomorrow night and take Thursday night off so she can be home with McKenzie. We have read about what to expect but until it happens we won't know. It says that she should be sleeping a great deal the first 24 hours. Mom has to have her there at 7 am on Thursday and she probably won't be released until 7 pm that night. We think everything is going to be just fine. Keeping her quiet for a few days is going to be the hard part!!
We sure hope your parronts had a wonderful time on the boat! We hope you and Bo had a fun day too!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's a cloudy day up here.
Today we are just getting laundry done and getting moms stuff ready for her workweek. I have been helping by doing lots of yelling! I know mom appreciates it so very much!
When mom opened the curtains in the living room this morning there was a pigeon sitting on the eaves looking in. McKenzie was draped over the end of the sofa looking at the bird. Mom went off to start laundry and clean up the kitchen and when she came back 20 minutes later the pigeon was still there. He stayed there for the longest time just looking in! McKenzie didn't bark or move towards him, she just sat staring at him. It was very strange.
Your Robin in the birdbath is so funny!! I wonder if a bigger bird will come along and chase him off! We see the Robins over in the wetland. They are so much bigger than most of the birds that hang out over there!
We hope your mom and dad have a wonderful time on the boat! I guess it would be like having 2 houses to clean!! We just hope the weather is perfect and your mom relaxes and has a wonderful time!
I hope your day is just awesome and lots of fun too!!

I hope you are having a wonderful day!! It's been nice here.
Vent cleaner guys showed up this morning. Mom saw the van yesterday but they must have started at the back of the complex. McKenzie went charging to the door like she was going to bite someone! It was impressive and I'm glad she wants to protect us but the guys were on the roof!! Guess she hasn't figured out that she can't get someone who is on the roof.
Mom bought her a Boo Boo dog today! It's a loofah dog. Mandy had a red one. Mom got McKenzie a lime green one. She really loves it. She really loved the hedgehog too but she ended up ripping it to pieces! The Boo Boo dog makes different noises depending on where you bite it! Kept her busy for a few hours so that was nice!
Mom also found a metal basket to use as a toy box for McKenzie's toys. Had to be metal so she couldn't chew it up. She understands what it's for and they are going to teach her to put her own toys away! Now that should be interesting!
Your garden seems to be a popular place! You know the animals are going to grab a snack wherever they can find one!!
Mom and Ian are working all weekend and Jennifer is down with her sister and Maddie. Dad will be home next week in time for McKenzie's surgery so maybe we will do something then.

I had computer problems because mom clicked on something she should not have! Ian fixed it up for her and told her no more clinking!hehehehehe It did cut into my computer time so if I have not been over I'm sorry! We can blame it all on mom!
No tree trimmers or gardeners here today. They have been here for the past two days and it's been noisy!! We did see a vent cleaning truck but they are not around my place. They are putting new flags up front. Green and Blue! Seahawk colors!! I don't imagine they planned it that way but it's still cool!
Wonder if they are going to have an inspection or if they are going to sell the place??? Probably not since I know they make lots of money off it.
They were giving away tickets to see the Seahawk practice today but they were all gone when mom logged in. It was suppose to start at 10 am but they were all gone at 10 am!! Season ticket holders got first crack at the them! They let the public attend about 12 practices a year. Mom wanted to go on a day when Taima the hawk was there! She loves the players but meeting Taima would be awesome! She knows a few season ticket holders so next year she will get one of them to get her tickets. It's free except for 8$ to pay for the bus to take you to the VMAC center. No parking for visitors there so you have to park at the movie theater across the freeway and take a bus!
Enjoy the day and I hope you get to have lots of fun!!

  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!

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!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  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!
Enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  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!

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!!!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!

  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!
