  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I'm glad that storm in over for now but it looks like there is going to be another one! I hope you are all safe and warm. I know the outside birds are doing well because of you guys!
I don't understand why people got upset with the weather people. I think it is better to be safe than sorry! You really do have to respect Mother Nature. Some people just want to control everything but you can't do that with Nature.
Did you lose power? We are blessed to have a gas fireplace so even if the power goes out we can turn it on. Keeping me warm is the only thing mom worries about when we get storms. We have been blessed with a very mild winter. February is normally a pretty stormy month up here but we shall see. We don't really have to worry about snow but winds! We get some very big wind storms up here!
Not much going on around the house. When I go into the bedroom mom will be using the carpet cleaner again. Mandy is doing well with her wee wee pads but sometimes she just misses a bit. Mom is glad that she and dad decided to buy the Bissell!
Enjoy your day and please give Bo my love!

  Hello Captain~~
I hope you are having a fun day!! How was Bo's Birthday party? I hope she loved the cake! Did you get some?? I love cake too especially the vanilla kind!
I wanted to tell you to stay safe and warm! We certainly hope the storm is not as bad as they think it is going to be!! I hope you are all able to just stay home together and I hope the power does not go out! They said if the power does go out there won't be anyone to fix it for a while!! That is not good!!
Warm hugs and lots of love ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Captain~
I hope you and Bo are having a wonderful day! 6.75"of snow already?? I am certainly glad you live in the house too! Did the other weather watchers report this morning? I wonder if your area got more than the city did.
I have never heard of a heated bird bath but that is just awesome. I know the outside birds really appreciate it. I am always amazed when I see birds out in the snow. We don't get a bunch of it here but the last time it snowed the crows were still out and about! Their feet made for some really cute birdsteps in the snow.
I bet you are having a great time looking at that snowman!! It's a perfect way to celebrate winter. It one of the fun activities you can only do in winter! I like the idea of the cream cheese container for a hat! That was very smart of your mom and I bet he looks great.
I hope your mom and dad get to stay home and just relax today! Mom is doing some cooking and then she'll be off to bed. Her workweek starts tonight!
Enjoy your day!!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It is so cool that you had so much to look at outside your window. I had rain all day so even the pigeons that live here did not come out!
Mom spent way too much time running around today and I didn't like it at all. Everyone else had to go to work and all at different times. Dad was going to leave early but they changed his pick up time. He was gone for an hour and a half this morning and told mom he was going to get some groceries for the truck. He never made it so mom took him to the market before she took him to the truck! Just crazy today and it didn't seem like a day off for mom at all!
The good news is that the NFL said that Taima can lead the Seahawks out of the tunnel for the Superbowl! YAY! I don't know what the Seahawks would do without him! He is a very important member of the team! Even people who don't like the Seahawks have to admit that Taima is the coolest mascot in the entire NFL!
Dad tried putting the old phone, that went through the washer, in a bag of rice to see if it would dry out that way but so far it still won't turn on. I don't suppose it matters now since he has the new one.
Dad's are very funny when it comes to phones. Mom has a drawer full of phones that dad has destroyed! She needs to get them over to the e-cycle place and recycle them!
I hope your evening is a relaxing one! Mom and I certainly plan on one!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you guys are having a great day! It's been boring around here but that is just fine with me. Mom worked last night and now we have our weekend again! I think she should take 3 days off every week!!
Dad washed his $300 Galaxy phone in the washing machine last night! Guess what? It doesn't work anymore!hahahahaha He is a bigger dork than mom is and that's saying something! He really can't function without his phone. It's a very sad, sad thing!hehehehehehe
He went by Costco and got another one. Let's hope he doesn't wash this one! He got the warranty on it but I do not think it will cover things done to it by dumb users!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! Dad took the picture of the 3 of usA(in my gallery) waiting for mom to come back! We are always somewhere near her and dad thought it was funny how we were all just sitting around waiting for mom. She is the one who feeds us and plays with us so of course we love to hang out with her!
We had a whole lot of cleaning to get done this morning and then dad took over the computer too. That leaves me with no time to blog since mom is working tonight! I think dad is leaving tomorrow so I'll have complete control over my computer then!
I hear it warmed up a bit for you guys! That is a really good thing. We hate to think of your parronts having to deal with icy roads!
Enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you had a wonderful day! My little Budgie cousin Paige flew to the Rainbow Bridge this morning. Mom's sister took her and her fisters, Pru and Piper, in last year. She isn't really sure how old they are. It's very sad but at least I know she was loved and had a good life for the last year. The people who had them before never spent any time with them and they didn't even have any toys!
I hope the ice went away and that you warmed up a bit too. I know that Cookie's family got stuck at home yesterday too. It's the best thing to do if there is ice out there.
Dad made it home today so he'll be here for a day or two. He has a doctor's appointment in the morning. He has to fast for 12 hours so he only has an hour to go! He had better get to eating!hahahaha He wanted pizza so I am getting another lovely piece of crust today! That is twice in a week! Mom told me not to get use to it! Bummer!!!
I hope that Fios works out really well for you! We don't have cable tv or a land line so we just pay for Internet. We have Amazon Prime and Netflix for watching TV and movies.
Enjoy your evening! Sleep tight and sweet dreams!

  Hello Captain~~
I hope you had a fantastic day! We did!! Now that mom's heart rate is back to an acceptable level I am having her blog for me! For a few minutes there I thought I was going to have to perform parrot resuscitation on her! That is when you bite them really hard to bring them back for the edge of hysteria!hahahaha HEY! It works!
What a great game between two awesome teams! The Packers should be very proud of themselves! This is what a championship game should look like! Now we have to see if it's the Colts or the Patriots who will be joining us in Arizona!
The day started out crazy so it is appropriate that it continued to be a crazy Sunday!
Jennifer was burning a candle in her room. She keeps the door closed so that no smoke comes out but she had her window open and the wind was blowing so some of the smoke blew into the hallway ans set off the smoke alarm! The dog freaked out and peed all the way down the hallway! I was screeching and it was pandemonium around here! Mom calmed me down and cleaned up after Mandy and gave us all snacks! We are hoping for a nice quiet evening!
We heard all about your icy weather up there! I think staying home is the best idea. It is nearly impossible to see ice on the road!!
You enjoy your evening! Keep warm!!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Happy TGI Blue Friday! There are lots of events going on up here before the big game on Sunday. It is going to be an exciting weekend up here!
Jennifer's boss sold her playoff tickets for $500 a piece!!! She is a season ticket holder so they always get a chance to buy their seats first. She is going to use the money to buy plane tickets to Arizona to see the Superbowl! She is that confident that the Seahawks are going to the Superbowl again! I must say that I agree with her! GO HAWKS!!!
It's a pretty quiet day around here. Everyone else is at work and when Ian gets off he is going to take the Sounder train up to Seattle to visit with his friends again. The one who lives in Pennsylvania is going home tomorrow.
Me and mom are going to continue with cleaning and do some cooking. Mom is off for 3 days after Saturday night so we don't need to cook too many meals. I think baking some cornbread would be an excellent idea!!
I hope your day is just perfect!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~~
I hope you had a wonderful day and I hope it got warmer for you! I've got my rain back but it's not very cold so it's okay!
We didn't know your mom had been the principal! You must be so very proud of her! It's a good that she still gets to do some teaching and have time for herself too. I bet those kid's are so excited to hear a story that your mom wrote!
We have pigeons and some sparrows around here. There is a wet land across the street from us and the Canadian Geese hang out there. I know there are hawks up here somewhere but with the Geese over there, the hawks hang out somewhere else. Can't say that I blame them because those Geese are big and can have very bad attitudes!!!
I bet those squirrels are very good at finding food even if it is seeds. It is very nice of your mom to leave them peanuts. I love peanuts too!
Not much going on around here today except for more cleaning. It is an everyday thing now since the dog is having to use wee wee pads instead of going outside. She is too old for the stairs now. She has always been such a loving dog but she is now showing her stubborn side!hehehehehe Mom has to tape a bunch of the pads together and cover the whole area. There are still accidents but we are dealing with it!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Did is warm up at all? Up here they put something on the roads before it snows. I wonder if they do that in your town too. We don't get very much snow usually but if it is going down below freezing they stripe the roads with that stuff. This year we have not had snow at all. We had a few days where it was down to 19 but luckily it was dry. The parking lot here at our complex froze because the water would drip off the carports during the day and freeze up at night. Once out on the street, all was well!! We are grateful that we have been having a mild winter.
Thank you for your nice comment about my Seahawks! I really do think they are going to win the Superbowl again this year. Next year I think some things will change because of a lot of contracts being up for renewal. I don't often think about the business side of it. We looked up the richest teams and Seattle is at #15. Cowboys are first followed by Patriots, Redskins and Giants. I just hope the players are out there because they love the game!
So Bo wanted to be a Christmas decoration?hehehehehehe We did not put up a tree this year but mom bought one on clearance so we will be having one next Christmas. I'm sure Bo just wanted to check things out and didn't mean any harm. I know she is a sweet bunny and just very curious!
How often does your mom go to teach?? It must be difficult to be the substitute. I hope most of the children she deals with are polite and don't give her any trouble.
I hope you enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! I'm so glad you had a great time with Cookie's mom and dad. They are very nice people and I think it's so wonderful that they live close enough to visit you! I know Cookie would have loved to come along but it just so very cold!
Mom is doing fine. It's just a little scrap on her knee and it is not very sore at all. She is just not use to having to climb a wall!! Merlin is still howling at the door wanting to go out but mom told him it is not going to happen! He has a harness and a leash so when the weather is warmer he goes out to roll in the grass for a while! I know it's crazy but I guess cats like to do that!
The book your mom wrote sounds wonderful! I just read one the other night called "No David" but it was about a boy getting into mischief not a cat! I would imagine that most cats hear the word no quiet a bit!!!
You enjoy your day and stay warm! Please give Bo my love too!

I think I have talked to you before. My name is Ms BIG BABY.

I only have 1 bird on my list now.
Would you or one of your flock like to get kisses and hugs for two weeks?

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day and that you and Bo are staying warm!
You will not believe what happened here last night! Mom was cleaning up the kitchen and put the trash bag out on the balcony. Sneaky Merlin went out there without mom knowing and jumped over the balcony!! He is perfectly fine, which is a miracle, but mom says unless he has his harness and leash on he is never going out there again!
She noticed he was missing and went to check the balcony and didn't see him. She checked the whole house out and he was no where to be found. She looked over the balcony but did not see him. She grabbed her jacket and went around the building, climbed down the embankment, sloshes through the moat and climbed up the wall to get to the downstairs neighbors patio. She saw Merlin run onto the patio and called to him. He came right to her! She bundled him up in her coat and brought him back home! She was muddy and banged her knee while climbing the wall but at least Merlin was okay. She checked every inch of that cat and he is just fine! Mom explained to him that cat do not really have 9 lives! He stuck to her like velcro for the rest of the night. Just before we went to bed, he was at the door howling to go out! Not too smart, is he? He sure is one lucky cat because it was only a few minutes between the time mom put the trash bag out and going downstairs to find him! If he had done that when mom wasn't here, no one else would have noticed him gone!
It is so kind of you to think of Cookie and I know he will enjoy the pizza. I talked to him earlier and I know he is sad that he can't come with his mom! Winter won't last forever!!
Enjoy your evening!!

I hope you had a wonderful day! I had a nice day. We just hung out at home and did chores around the house. I got to watch a show called Fantasia. It had really nice music and even Mickey Mouse! It is a really old show but it was fun to watch.
Did it get very cold today? We have seen some of the temps from the East Coast and it seems very cold.
I bet Bo is a very good weather bunny! I think that animals are probably better at indicting weather then humans are! I know they don'e seem to get it right here too often!!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! I apologize for the boring
C/P but things have been crazy around here for the past few days. Getting dad ready to head out is always crazy! He always thinks of something he wants to get before he goes and then leaves stuff behind as well! He'll be having to get himself a new soup bowl and some coffee creamer because they are both sitting on the kitchen counter!hahahahahahaha
There has been the usual clean up after the dog and giving her a bath too! She is doing pretty well but manages to pee off the edges of the wee wee pads! Mom has 4 of them taped together but she still manages to miss part of it! She is still happy and eating up a storm so this is not such a big thing to deal with. It's just takes some time!
This morning we were all set to get my notes out when Ian asked to use the computer. Something happened to his and he needed to download something to fix it! It took an hour!
Right when mom sat down at the computer, I screamed! Mom got me out of the cage and checked me out! I was chewing up wood and she was afraid I had hurt my beak. I let her check out the beak and look at my tongue but there was no way I was going to let her touch it!! Who knows where those hands have been!!
Anyway, nothing seems to be damaged but I insisted on sitting on mom's lap for a long time! I had a fright and I needed to be fussed over! I'm back in the play cage now, having an apple and a goldfish cracker! Perhaps tomorrow will be a bit quieter and I can get a better note out! I just don't want any bird to think I have forgotten them! Never gonna happen!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain Barnacles~~
I hope you are having a great day! We hear you are suppose to get snow today! Cookie told us!
It was so much fun to watch a weather report for other end of the country! Your mom is such a pretty lady and it is so cool that your tv station thought up this idea. Up here they focus on Seattle which is 35 miles north of us so it doesn't help anyone who lives down here to know the weather in Seattle unless they are driving there. If they had weather watchers it would be great! Then the rest of us would know what to expect! You can drive just 4 miles from my house and have completely different weather. We live in an area called Summit and it can be snowing up here but not down the hill! We think it is just awesome that your mom it helping out and taking all those great pictures too!
I bet Bo is afraid that your mom is going to leave again. She'll be okay once she realizes that the schedule it back to normal. She is one smart bunny because extra hugs and scratches are always a good thing!
Dad is getting ready to hit the road again. It's been really nice having him home for almost 2 weeks! He hasn't taken more than 3 days off in a row for more than a year. He has a doctors appointment on the 20th so he should be back before then.
Today is getting all the laundry done and his stuff packed up. He doesn't have to leave until Sunday night but he needs to get his new truck loaded up and believe me when I say the guy has a whole bunch of stuff to put in that truck! I think it's going to take him most of this afternoon to get it done!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug for you and Bo!

  Hello Captain Barnacles~~
A very Happy New year to all of you too!! I guess other creatures do not appreciate our built in alarm clocks! I think your chirping at 7am is perfectly reasonable! We birds are not sleeping in kind of animals!
It is so cool that a picture your mom took made it on the news! She is a celebrity! We looked up the broadcast! Your mom is Adele??? Fabulous picture! That is such a smart way to track the weather. It is such a huge area and I know the weather can be very different for everyone! Your mom did a great job!
We are having the same kind of weather here! Very cold but dry! It was 19 here this morning and dad was complaining! Mom told him he didn't have to go out in it so just sit by the fireplace and enjoy the sunshine! Mom is the only one who has to work this week so the others should be thankful they got to stay in!
I hope your parronts had a wonderful time at Christmas. It makes all the difference in the world to have a little one around!
Enjoy the rest of your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug for you and Bo!

I hope you had a wonderful day and I hope your Christmas was fabulous!
Mom got home late from work this morning so my schedule was all off! At first I was pretty upset but it turned out okay since mom doesn't have to work tonight and spent lots of time with me.
There were lots of people at the store very early today. All the Christmas stuff was 75% off so they were grabbing stuff right and left! Mom managed to grab the cards for next year and two really nice shopping bags. They have Christmas pictures on them but who cares! One of them will be our new book bag since they are water proof. The old one is starting to rip on the bottom!
There was no traffic to report on the radio news show this morning so they were reporting when each mall was going to open!!! You would think everyone would be tired of shopping at this point but it certainly didn't look that way! Ian was suppose to work 4 hours today but he ended up staying for 8 since it was so busy. All those little kids who got gift cards could not wait to get to Toys R Us and find a new treasure! It's always exciting when they have their own money to spend!
Enjoy your evening and I hope it's just perfect!

Dad is home so we will all be together for Christmas. The skin brother is still at work but he should be off soon. Mom is roasting a turkey breast tonight and doing prime rib tomorrow. She has to be at work at midnight tomorrow so they will eat early. I'm just waiting on some of that corn bread!! It will be a quiet day but that is just perfect!

  Hello Captain~
Happy Monday and may I say GO HAWKS!hehehehehe They did good yesterday! Now if the BC had not squawked me off all morning I would say it was a perfect day!
When mom got home this morning they had the side gate to the complex blocked. Mom had to turn around, go up the street past the complex, make a U-turn and come in the front gate. As she making the turn at our building, a sheriff's car and the Medical examiner's van were going out the gate! That is not good. We have no idea what happened but it can't be good! Dad told mom the fire department pulled in around 6am but not with sirens. I guess someone passed away. Mom will find out from the lady downstairs since she seems to know everything that goes on here. There are 251 apartments here and we only know the people in our building.
Only 2 nights to go and mom will have a day off! YAY! She'll probably just sleep most of the time off anyway but it will still be nice to have her around at night. Mom already has lots of great stuff for us to eat on Christmas Eve and on Christmas. It will be nice just to have the whole family together for a couple of meals! That doesn't happen around here much!
Dad bought a new computer chair yesterday. It was what he and mom decided would be their Christmas present. I hate it! It is way too big and I can not see mom when she is sitting in it. I think she needs to move my play cage so I can keep an eye on her!!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a hug!

I hope your day was just perfect! We had some very dark clouds to the west but sunshine to the east! It looked very pretty. We didn't do a whole lot today. Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night and we have lots to get done around the house. Dad will be home Wednesday and he gets to stay home until Christmas is over!!
Mom went to the mall today to the Hallmark store to get Ian an ornament. She got him the Spiderman one this year. Mom has been buying him a Christmas ornament every year since he was born. This will be ornament #32! He has a strange collection of book characters, Godzilla, spaceships and action figures! The very first one was the Poky Little Puppy! That was his favorite book at the time!
It sound very exciting around your house and a book signing too! Everyone around here has been working different shifts so it's nice just to have everyone together for one meal! Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night so at least I will have her to myself for a while. With all this coming and going I do not see how we are going to just enjoy the season! Mom says it will be just fine!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! We've had no rain and the wind has died down too. It is a bit cooler but it's more like it should be this time of the year!
There was a blackbird running around the furniture pad at mom's store this morning. Someone left the garden doors open and he came on in!! Mom tried to get him to come to her but he just hid around the back of an ottoman. She called her manager and told him that the bird was there and he told her that he had come in the day before. Her manager chased him around for half an hour but couldn't catch him. Mom thought about the fishing nets in the sporting goods department but the mesh is too big and she doesn't want him hurt. Mom suggested they make a trail of seed to the garden door. If he has been in the store for a day he must be hungry. There is a fountain in the indoor garden so he had access to water at least. Mom will find out tonight if they managed to get him out.

There are only 11 more ads until Christmas!hahaha Of course they are going to do an ad the day after also so mom will have to be there at midnight. They have tons of wrapping paper so everyone will probably be in for that. It will get slower after a few weeks. They have a storage event and early tax time and then it will be Valentine's Day! They already have throws, blankets, pillows and decor for Valentine's Day! At least it's all in the stockroom and not out on the floor!
I hope you enjoy your day!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you had a wonderful day! It was pretty nice here. I am on my second toy in a week and had a great time making a lovely pile of wood at the bottom of my play cage! Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night so she took a nap and then had to go to the bank. She and Ian are giving Jennifer a new Kindle for Christmas and she wanted to use dad's account because he gets free shipping on Amazon. I think Jennifer is going to be very surprised!
I got squawked again yesterday morning and couldn't get back on until last night! It keeps happening on Sundays!! I have no idea how long it stays that way since mom had to work last night so she had to give up and go to sleep! I'm so sorry I didn't get by! I thought they took weekends off!hahahahaha I think they should take the weekends off!!
We are watching a movie while I get my notes done then it will be off to bed! I don't know why mom gets so happy about going to sleep! I'd rather stay up all night and play!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Lots of cleaning and some cooking going on here. Kind of boring really but I have a new toy in the play cage to keep me occupied.
Mom put the Trans Siberian Orchestra CD on for us to listen to. She just love the Christmas Canon. She love the Canon and this version of it is very beautiful! I'm enjoying it. The new computer does not have the same music program as the old one so mom has not figured out how to get more music on her MP3 player! Ian gave mom his old IPod since he got a smart phone and it does everything the Ipod does. Now mom has to figure out how to use it! She can turn it on and off! So far that's about it!Hahahahahaha It's rather embarrassing to have a mom who is so clueless when it comes to technology!
You enjoy your day and I do hope it's perfect!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you had a wonderful day. It's been crazy here and I am so sorry I have not been able to get notes out like I should! I would not want you to think you are not important to me because that is not true!!
You know our dog Mandy is very old now and can no longer go up or down the stairs anymore. Mom got the wee wee pads and put them all over the balcony but Mandy has been stubborn about them! She has hip dysplasia so she tends to slip a lot. She has figured out what the pads are for at least!
When mom gets home in the mornings Mandy is so excited to see her that she just pees wherever she is! Mom has been spending a whole bunch of time mopping floors, cleaning the carpet and washing blanket and towels which has left me very little time for the BC! Mom just finished working 8 days straight too!
Mom is going to put diapers on Mandy at night now. It's easier to give her a bath everyday then it is to do all this cleaning. The warm baths seems to help her too!
Everything is just fine here. We had 3 very cold days but the clouds rolled back in today and it's warmed up! I have been busy with chewing up wood and supervising the chores! It's a nice way to spend the day!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! We got to talk to dad this morning. He is in Iowa now and it's snowing there! He is at a truck stop and is going to stay there for the day. Truck drivers are only allowed to drive a certain amount of hours a day and if dad is on a road where there is an accident and he gets stuck, he will run out of hours. If he takes a break right now he gains more hours and won't have to worry about running out. He's on his way to Oklahoma. He actually told mom that the snow looked pretty! Dad usually hates snow!
We are getting things ready for mom to start her workweek tonight and for Ian who starts his tomorrow. Hopefully Black Friday won't be too crazy. Mom just hopes everyone has a good time.
I hope your Thanksgiving is just perfect! I am thankful for your friendship and know how very blessed I am to have found such excellent friends here on the BC!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are all having a wonderful day! It's still grey, wet and windy at my house! We have the fireplace on and it's very cozy inside! Mom tells me that if it were sunshine and warm all the time we wouldn't be able to use the fireplace!!
I do hope you and Bo are staying warm and cozy also! There is way too much snow in your neck of the woods!
They had the first big snow up on the mountain today and it was a mess!! Snoqualmie pass is the main road between west and east out here and a lot of people use it. There were cars spinning all over the place! Some people didn't check the pass conditions before they went so they didn't have chains with them. Everyone who uses that road knows that you always check the pass conditions no matter what time of the year it is!
Mom is going to get the pantry straightened out today since it looks like something exploded in there!hehehehehe We have too much stuff and need to get some meals cooked. Mom only works 2 nights and then she'll be off 2 nights so we will have our Thanksgiving then. She got a ham and a turkey since they were great deals! Most stores don't do the cheap turkeys anymore but mom found one where she got the turkey for 48 cents a pound! I'm just looking forward to the corn bread! Maybe some pumpkin pie too!
You enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a hug for you!

  Hello Captain~
I do hope you are having a wonderful day! Your boat themed Christmas display sounds so wonderful! How lovely to have that tradition and all the friends that come to celebrate! It sounds very exciting too.
So your mom and Cookie's mom are going to diner? I think Cookie likes to hang out with his dad because he can get more snacks from his dad than Aunt Mary gives him!hehehehehehe Same way here! Mom had to put a list of "Sugar No No's" on the fridge because dad will give me anything!! Does your dad give out better snacks??
We have had sunshine for days now but we are waking up to 20 degrees! No snow so I will not complain! I'm in the house with a lovely fireplace to keep my tail feathers nice and cozy!
I hope dad has fun time with the blower! Our gardeners were here yesterday and did that too! They have had to do it for the last 3 weeks and I feel bad for them! When the wind starts blowing again there will be more leaves for them to blow away next week!! At this point I think the trees should be naked!hehehehe
You enjoy the day and give Bo my love too!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It is just beautiful here but it's cold! It was only 25 this morning! We put the fireplace on this morning and just had to put it back on because it was getting below 70 again. Mom likes to keep it around 73 for me. The turtles tank is right next to the fireplace so I think they enjoy the warmth too!
Mom has chili cooking in the crockpot so I know there will be corn bread to go with it!YUM! I'm watching Rio while mom gets some chores done. I know she is going to do more cooking this afternoon so I hope there is more good stuff for me! She has already finished up Mandy's stew and has been slicing apples for a pie. I like apple pie!! She was off last night and is off tonight so she is trying to get some meals done ahead of time. She tells me it makes life easier! I say it make life more yummy!hehehehehe
I do hope you enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are all having a wonderful day! I'm having fun so far!
It was stormy here all night but when we woke up this morning there was a rainbow outside the window! So very pretty and what a lovely thing to see at the start of the day! It didn't last very long but I hope all those people out in the busy morning traffic got to see it and I hope it brought a smile to their faces.
The last load of laundry is in the dryer. It's the towels mom uses on Mandy. She has become a pretty high maintenance dog lately but mom said that is to be expected with her age. She still eats like there is no tomorrow and still plays with her toys. The play time has to be gentle due to her physical limitations but she still enjoys it. Since she is 4 years past the life expectancy for her breed, we feel blessed to still have her in our lives. She and I have been together her entire life and even if I do still try to nip her if she gets too close, I love her!
Mom got a lot of fruit yesterday so I am having a fruit salad today. I got some peaches yesterday with my apple and they were good. No telling is I will decide to eat a banana today or not. Somedays I like them and others I do not! I like being contrary because that is what us birds do! It's good to keep the parronts guessing!hehehehehe
I do hope your day is just perfect! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!

  Hello Captain~
I hope your day was just wonderful! Mine was pretty good. We did a lot of laundry and some cooking too. I got a bit of a cranberry orange muffin and it was yummy!
I keep having to log off and log back in because I am getting that URL page. I have no idea what that is all about but I did manage to get the BOTD list for October put up and fixed the 10k page also. It would not let me ad the Kissing Booth to the list. I guess my list just got too long so I divided them up. It is done now but as soon as more birds get on the list I may have to make another page for it.
Mom is off tonight ans she has promised to let me watch Frozen again. I watched Curious George this afternoon and it always makes me laugh. For some reason his little squeaky voice drives mom crazy!hehehehehe
I hope your evening is just perfect! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs to you and Bo!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Happy November!
For the 9th year in a row, no one came to trick or treat! Mom is so disappointed! Maybe next year!
Mom and the kids went to the mall in the afternoon. Mom did her walk while the kids were at Gamestop. There were a few people dressed up so that was cool!
Dad delivered locally so he got to come home over night. They went to have dinner at the Mexican restaurant down the street and everyone there was dressed up. Their waiter was dressed as Chumbly from Pawn Stars and some of the people there had the Dia de Los Muertos face painting! It was awesome! There was a lady having dinner there with her family and she was dressed as Tinkerbell! She did the costume herself and even had her hair pinned up the way Tinkerbell does! Her little girl was Cinderella but they made her take the costume off while she ate! Probably a good idea!
Pretzels are a great idea! Mom bought the Tootsie Roll big bag with all different kinds of candy in it and some Snickers too! She doesn't like Snickers but dad and the kids do!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug for you and Bo!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!
The new computer is up and running. Dad put Window 8 on it so mom is scrolling around like a lost puppy!! She has pretty much figured our how to get to where she wants to go so that is all that matters. The living room still looks like we've been robbed but mom and I will be working on that today.
I left the room when dad was building it because there was just too much stuff and I was getting very upset! He shoved the old computer and monitor in front of my playcage!! That was the last straw so I went to climb around my night cage and clear the dresser off for mom! I even shoved my Hello Kitty lunch boxes off! I know it was a big help!
Mom's uncle does Ancestry research and someone sent him pictures of the graves of mom's Great Grandma and Grandpa. They are in upstate New York by Medina. Mom went there when she was a little kid but doesn't really remember much. It was very cool to see it now though.
I hope you enjoy your day! I'm off to help clean the living room up! We can't even turn the fireplace on at the moment because of all the stuff that is in front of it! It has gotten colder here in the last few days so we might actually need it!!
Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! It's still wet and windy up here but that is the way it is suppose to be this time of the year.
I'm helping mom get some cooking done since she goes back to work tonight and has to work 8 days straight. Having some meals done ahead of time really helps out.
Mom got the computer working this morning and so far so good! She deleted some programs and that may have been the problem. I know! It's a miracle that she figured any of this out!! Ian put Avast security on it and mom started to notice every time it would freeze and have to restart that it would say Avast had updated. It must have been blocking just about every site mom went to. Jennifer's desktop was not doing it so mom deleted it and another program dad put on and it's working this morning.
Dad already ordered the new parts to upgrade and they will be here sometime next week. Hopefully dad will be home sometime next week too so he can put it together. It's really not that hard but mom would rather dad do it so she doesn't mess anything up!
I do hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! We got the car back this morning! YAY! New transmission and an oil change and he is in great shape. Mom is going to have to remember she doesn't have to go really, really slow until he grabs 1st gear now! Felt a bit strange but we are so happy to have it done!
We got the linen closet all cleaned out and made room to store the huge package of paper towels and toilet paper. Mom also got a few cases of bottled water she is keeping in there too. There was an e-coli contamination out on Mercer Island and it closed down all the restaurants for days and everyone had to boil their water. We use a Brita filter but mom doesn't think that it will filter e-coli. She has decided to give me, Mandy and Merlin bottle water to drink just to be safe. They have no idea where the contamination came from and mom doesn't want to take the chance it might happen here. Maybe she is just being too paranoid but she would rather be safe than sorry!
Kaji is only 11 away from his 10K so he will be there very soon. The 10k page is ready for a party so please stop on by tomorrow and congratulate him and grab some food!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! We are playing
"Where in the World is the computer's cursor?"hahahahaha
It's a very fun game and when the cursor vanishes you have to wait for a few seconds to find it! Mom should market it to all computer users! I'm sure there are lots of people out there who would love to sit around and wait for that cursor to re-appear! Okay, so you would need a lot of patience to play this game and it might not be for everyone!
They are changing out the flags in front of our building today. There are 8 of them, 4 on each side of the driveway. The ones up there are blue and green with red tulips but since it's Autumn they are putting up gold ones and burgundy ones with gold stripes. They are very nice looking but I think I like the tulips better. I guess the tulip flags will be back in the spring.
They are also cleaning the vents on the roof over at the office building so I've been switching back and forth watching the vent cleaning and the flags. It's like a double feature at the movies!hehehehehe
Enjoy your day! Leaving an Autumn hug and a vote too!
Love you ~ Sugar
