  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! We are having a little Puppy Bowl party. Don't really care about the Super Bowl. We just hope it's a fun game and that everyone has a great time.
Mom has been filing the papers we sorted out this week. That is one big job done. Now she just has to make sure everyone keeps up with filing! There is a big box of papers for dad to go through when he gets home. I'm sure he will just love doing it!
Mom has 2 more nights so we are going to enjoy them! Jennifer is home and she is watching Agents of Shield. We have seen them but she hasn't. I don't mind seeing them again.
I hope you have a great day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Captain~
I hope the day was great! I took a shower today and it felt good. I had been feeding McKenzie some of my treats and then decided that we both needed to get cleaned up! She started barking at me when I dumped the water on her so I know she really enjoyed it! She got toweled off and I just air dried!
Mom took Jennifer down to visit her dad this morning so I got some quiet time! I got another piece of my hatchday cake after lunch. It was lovely.
The rest of the day was spent chasing puppy and trying to get chores done. We are now going to relax and get my notes done and perhaps watch a movie. It is very rare for mom to have a Saturday night off so we are going to make the most of it!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!

I hope your day was wonderful! Thank you to you, Bo and Sailor for the Hatchday wishes! I had a great day. I got a slice of white cake just for me! I'll never be able to finish it so I guess the kids will have to help!
Have a lovely evening!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you had a wonderful day! It was busy around here but that was just because of puppy duty. McKenzie got into a lot of trouble today. She just couldn't seem to sit still. Mom was chasing after her most of the day! She still is! McKenzie just doesn't want to leave Merlin alone. Mom doesn't want to keep Merlin locked up all day and McKenzie really needs to learn to leave him alone.
I decided she was looking pretty hungry so I started throwing seeds, nuts and pellets down for her! Mom didn't think it was a very good idea. She swept it up and by the time she dumped it, I had thrown more down. Mom swept it up again and then dumped the rest. I got some veggie instead. That was my plan all along!hahahahaha
Obviously, we didn't get much else done. Mom was working on cleaning the oven. Since we don't use any chemicals around here it takes a bit longer to do. She should be able to finish it up tomorrow.
Sounds like you are going to have a fun weekend! We are not going to party for the Superbowl since our Hawks are not there. Mom thinks the Panthers will win but who knows! I just hope you all enjoy it!
I hope you enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~
I hope your day was fabulous! I had a pretty good one. I helped mom go through more papers today! Mom found tax returns from before she was married!!! She has been married for nearly 34 years!hahahahahaha Ian said it was pretty impressive. Mom said it was really bad of her to hang on to stuff that old! It's all shredded and gone now. We do know that McKenzie will bark at the paper shredder! Mom brought her over to it so she knows it's not a scary thing.
Mom made a trip over to the Goodwill and deposited a bunch of stuff! She is very pleased that we got rid of so much stuff! There were things mom didn't even know we had and hopefully someone else will be happy to have them!
Ian took mom to Chipotles for lunch. She loves having salads there. The manager gave them drinks and chips for free since they come in there so often. That was so nice of him!! They have had a lot of bad press lately but mom have never had a bad experience there.
Mom checked her schedule for next week and she is not scheduled until Tuesday night! That means extra days of vacation for her! YAY!! Don't know if that will be the case but it's nice if it is!
I hope you enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you had a wonderful day! Pretty nice around here. They say if Groundhogs day is bright and sunny then winter will be around for another 6 weeks! I hope not because it was bright and sunny here today! Our winter has not really been very bad. Only a few freezing days and very little snow down here. Lots in the mountains though. Our drought was very short lived and that is marvelous!
Dad doesn't help with the major cleaning. Mostly because he is out on the road but then dad's idea of cleaning is throwing everything away! Not such a good thing! He once threw out the bottom of a perfectly good blender because he didn't know what it was!! The company didn't make that model anymore so mom had to toss it!
It is so cool that your mom has such a good relationship with the wild birds. I think I would love to see them too. I do get to watch the geese fly over but mom always tells me they are not very pleasant birds and it's better to leave them along!
Have a wonderful night!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It was busy around here. We are still going on with the spring cleaning and the back of the car is now filled with stuff for the Goodwill. Mom will have to drop that stuff off tomorrow so she can put more in there. McKenzie is in the back seat so anything we put there would be chewed up by the time mom got to Goodwill!
The kitchen and the dining room are done and now mom is working on her room. It's slow going since she can only do it when the puppy is taking a nap or at night when she is in her crate. McKenzie is a very curious girl and wants to see everything!
Dad is in Utah and says the weather is nasty. He he one of 28 trucks who are hauling the equipment for a show called Marvel Universe Live. It's got Spiderman and my favorite, Captain America. It's coming to Seattle after Utah but I don't think dad will be hauling the stuff again.
I hope you have a lovely evening! Leaving a vote and a hug too!

  Hello Captain~
I hope the day has been just wonderful. Lots of cleaning going on around here. Mom has started Spring Cleaning early. Since she will have all of next week off we figured we needed to get it done! Mom has a dream of everything being organized and in it's place around here! I deal in reality and I keep telling her that unless she dumps the family that ain't gonna happen! We cleaned out the cabinets in the kitchen and the china cabinet today. There are about 5 boxes for the Goodwill.
Ian was off today so he took McKenzie out on the balcony and mom vacuumed and cleaned the rug. We are going to get burritos for dinner and then it will be a relaxing evening. Don't know if I'll get to watch any movies. Jennifer has been watching some show on Netflix in the evening so I'll just watch whatever she puts on! I usually laugh at all of it anyway even if it's a drama!
A Happy Birthday to Bo even if I'm late! I think it must have been a great celebration! Cake is always a good idea!
You guys stay warm and I hope the streets are safe! That is the only part that mom hates a lot!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a fun day! McKenzie is napping at the moment so I have a chance to get a note out! Who knew that our entire lives would be taken over by one little puppy?? I feel just awful when I can't get by to say hello but there are times when it's non stop around here. I think the puppy is trying to set a new worlds record for destruction of furniture! It is not going over well with mom!hehehehe
Mom is helping with the toy clearance at work. It's that time of year again! Actually they are about 2 weeks early with it this year. Soon all the pool toys will be out and people will be walking by dreaming of warmer weather and lots of sunshine.hehehehehe HECK! Easter will be here before you know it! Well, it will be in the stores before you know it. We have always enjoyed winter but this year we can't wait for Spring and some sunshine and long walks around the lake. It makes for a sleepy puppy and more time for me on BC!
I sure hope you have a wonderful day! Stay warm and cozy and if anyone has to go out, be careful on those roads!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you had a great day! Mine was okay. I spent a lot of time ripping up the newspaper at the bottom of my play cage. It just needed that extra touch that only I can give it! McKenzie thought it was a great idea and came over to help! Mom put her on her leash to keep her away from me. I kept trying to get her to come over. I really wanted to give her a little nip! It was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon even though mom didn't seem to have as much fun as I did.
It's our weekend now but I don't know what we are going to do. There is a lot of chores to get done but that is all boring stuff. I want to have some fun so I hope there is a movie and some popcorn!
Heard about the snow out there. Some people didn't think the snow in DC was that much but if you live without snow most of the time, any snow can cause problems!
I think Bo is just adorable! Merlin has learned to stay out of the way. McKenzie just wants to play but she is too strong and plays too rough. It won't be forever, or so mom tells me!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been okay here so far but it's just starting!hahahahahaha
Gloomy day but I can't complain since so many places are having very cold temps.
Mom is getting some laundry done and we just had snack time. I had my apple and a couple of almonds, Merlin had some of the Greenie treats and McKenzie had a Blue Dog bakery cookie. Mom says it's like a daycare around here!!
McKenzie was in a very chewy mood this morning and tried to chew on the legs of the coffee table. Mom redirected her to a toy but that didn't last long. She then tried to chew the lever on the bottom of the computer desk chair! She is tenacious! Right now she is trying to kill her stuffed reindeer toy.
You enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! We are doing laundry and mom has been cleaning out the kitchen. She is giving her Kitchen Aid mixer to a friend at work. Mom has had it for 8 years and used it once! It sure did free up a lot of space in the pantry!
We have to clean out George and Gracie's tank and mom wants to clean the rug in the hallway. McKenzie barks at the vacuum and the cleaner still so Ian will take her out on the balcony while mom does that. She seems to like it out there. She sits in on of the chairs and watches the world go by!

I hope you having a wonderful day! We are still in the midst of cleaning out the storage room. Dad has all sorts of junk in there and I do mean junk! Who needs 4 boxes of old wires and plugs???? Not mom!hehehehehehe She found plugs for things that have been gone for years!
Mom has to stop by the market later to get some bread. Only bread left in the house was the rye that Ian got for his lunches. It does not make good peanut butter toast so I had my apple first this morning.
McKenzie was sleeping in the dining room when a truck came by and put on his jake break! It makes a terrible noise and made her jump up and start barking! They are not suppose to use them in the city but they do all the time. Guess they never get caught so they keep doing it. I know she will get use to all the noises around here someday. I did and Merlin doesn't care anyway since he is a cat and thinks he is above it all!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you had a wonderful day! Mom's mother always waited until January 5th to take down the decorations and tree. Mom took it all down on December 26th because McKenzie kept bumping into the tree and knocking it over. She is just a wiggly dog and didn't mean to do it.
Heard it got very cold out there! I hope you are all staying warm and cozy. We've gone back up into the 40's so it's not so bad. Mom bundles up when she takes the puppy out for a walk because she knows she is going to be out there for a while. McKenzie loves to walk and look at everything. She is an excellent sniffer and wants to sniff all the bushes out there. It is difficult to get her to concentrate on why she is out there. She gets distracted very easily.
Mom was off last night and is off tonight too. She got lots of stuff taken over to the Goodwill today. She got rid of a bunch of cardboard boxes also. Ian and dad tend to save them for some reason. Ian and dad tend to save a lot of stuff that mom usually ends up having to dispose of!hehehehehehe
I hope you have a wonderful evening! Give Bo a big hello from me!

  Hello Captain~~
I hope you are having a spectacular day! I have not gotten many notes done in the past few days. I'm sure every bird knows what has been taking up the typist time~or should I say who!!! It's like having a second job. She seems to like to get into everything! We are slowly getting her use to the schedule and she is doing great sleeping in the crate at night. Mom moved it out to the living room for the nights she is not home. She discovered the living room window and school buses yesterday. That kept her occupied for half an hour. We are working on "mom and Merlin are not chew toys" right now!
Mom has met more neighbors in the past 2 weeks than the entire 6 years we have lived here. Everyone seems to have a dog here. Not like when Mandy was out walking. McKenzie is learning to socialize with other dogs but gets so distracted that she forgets why she is out there.
We had snow on Sunday but it only lasted for the day. Just fine by me. It was slushy the next day but the roads were taken care of so the driving wasn't bad. Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night so if it wants to snow again, it can! Don't think it will though. Never snows when you want it too!

I hope you are having a fabulous 1st day of the year! Clear as a bell here but was only 20 degrees this morning!
We has a quiet evening. There were some fireworks that started around 8 pm. Mom was out walking McKenzie and there was a big boom but mom told her it was okay and just kept walking! McKenzie did not freak out! She did, however, bark loudly at a grocery store shopping cart someone left on the walkway! Mom took her over to it and let her sniff it! I guess everything is scary if you have never seen it before!
We went to bed rather early and mom put the radio on for us so we could listen to classical not booms. I know! We are a boring lot but it was nice that mom did not have to work and we could spend the evening together!
Dad was back in New Mexico on his way to Texas. He is sending mom a picture of the truck stop where he found McKenzie. It will be interesting to see where she came from.
I hope the day is perfect and I hope 2016 it the most wonderful year any of us have ever had!!

I hope you are having a great day! We are getting laundry done and then we'll get more cleaning done. It's amazing how messy this house has gotten in the last week. Someone besides me seems to like ripping newspaper so there is a lot of that to pick up! Mom has already done it a few times. She though she had gotten all the papers put away but I guess she missed a few!hahahahaha
Not much else going on around here. Mom promised me pizza! Can't wait!!
You know Bo is just doing what comes naturally! I'm sure she is not trying to make a big mess and be a bad bunny! I think she really should have left your cover alone tho! I know I wouldn't like it if McKenzie tried to take my covers!

  Hello Captain~
I hope your day was wonderful! Haven't been getting too many notes done lately! It's all the puppy's fault! She is one wild girl! Mom and dad are starting to think she will never get why they take her out so much! She is still a baby and it looks like it's going to take more time to get her to understand potty training. She is determined to make Merlin her best friend! Mom keeps telling her that cats do not play well with others!hehehehehe
Mom is off tonight and goes back on Tuesday night. That is just Monday off since she starts at 11 pm so she will have to pick another day off. It gets confusing since she starts at 11 instead of midnight. It's extra time off for her so she is just fine with it! They are having a huge storage event at the store mom works at so things have not gotten much quieter for her. It will slow down soon!
I'm not sure I mentioned this, but the reason dad went out shopping on Christmas Eve was because he got mom Seahawks License plates for Christmas! He had to wait until she was done with the car because they have to have the temporary paper on the back until the plates show up! It would have ruined the surprise if mom had seen the temporary! I think dad did good!
You enjoy your evening! Give Bo a big Hello from me!

  Hello Mr Capt Barney Knuckles, LOL-love from Jenny
...on this, our last Sunday to the year, we hope 2015 was a good one for you and your family, ours wasn't real bad, but we've had better, we are anxious to see what 2016 will bring our way! I wish we could have stayed longer at the Milonga last night, it looked like every birdie was having a great time, and I am not going to bother trying to explain dad's physical problem, nobody would understand and won't until they get older, and have heart and circulation problems! We want to thank all our BC friends for the dozens and dozens of beautiful Christmas cards, many with great photos! We have 37 degrees but it will warm to 38, and bring more rain, overcast, and cold! Have a wonderful Sunday, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

With love on this Sunday & always, Jenny Lynn, daddy, and our Dallas family

Merry Christmas!! Can't believe it's already here!! I hope tomorrow is just wonderful for you!

Dad has gone off Christmas shopping. Yes! I know! It's Christmas Eve. Dad never goes shopping before Christmas Eve. He says it's his Christmas tradition. I think dad just like to put things off until the last minute!

I am starting to think that McKenzie is a bird dog!! She tried to chew the coffee table and loves to chew boxes! I swear I did not teach her any of this! It's all coming naturally so that is why I think she might be part bird! Cool!hehehehehe

Mom rented Mission Impossible and Pan from the Redbox so we will be watching those later. Mom and I are going to watch Pan since she has no interest in seeing Mission Impossible. Popcorn and a movie while we get laundry done! Great way to spend Christmas Eve!

I hope your day is perfect and that you have a great Christmas!

I hope you are enjoying the day! I am toasty warm in my play cage having a snack and chatting with mom!
McKenzie did well in the crate last night. It's all wire so she can see out. Mom got her bed in there and gave her the parrot toy. She covered the back with a blanket so that the nightlight wouldn't shine on her. She fussed for a bit but then went to sleep.
Wish potty training was going as well but it hasn't even been one day yet. We did have to get the carpet cleaner out last night.
McKenzie pulled Merlin's bowl off the table and broke it. Mom will replace it with something in stainless steel. She sure did figure out what the kitchen was for pretty quickly! I'd say she is a smart dog.
Merlin does not like her very much! He already tried to whack her but mom stopped him. Mom assures me that they will get use to each other eventually.
I think she is very cute but if she comes near the cage, I will bite her. I do have to defend my cage you know! There is a big piece of cardboard wrapped around the bottom of my cage so that I can not get to her if she comes to visit!
Still cold here and is suppose to rain until Christmas!! Christmas is only 6 days away now! Seems like the time just flew by.
Cookie said there was some snow. Was it a lot and did it stick? We have tons in the mountains. They didn't get much last year but they have already made it up this year. Everyone who enjoys skiing is very excited but the roads are so bad up there it's nearly impossible to get up there! More snow is suppose to be on its way too! We don't ski but mom has friends who are crazy about it! Hope everyone gets to go!
Have an awesome day! Please give Bo a big Hello from me! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you had a great day!
She's here!! McKenzie is home! Oh my goodness! She has been non-stop motion since she got home. She barked at me and tried to stick her nose in my play cage and then started barking at Merlin. Merlin ran off to hide in the bedroom. I climbed down to give her a bite! Mom is going to wrap cardboard around the bottom of my play cage so that there are not accidents.
Mom has not sat down since McKenzie got here! Should have seen mom try to eat lunch!hahahaha McKenzie would trot over to my cage and mom would go get her. McKenzie would sit on her bed for a little while and then trot back over! I think she is in awe of me!!
Mom and Dad had to go down to Petsmart to pick up a crate. If they don't lock her up tonight no one is going to get any sleep!
She grabbed the turtle food and took off with that and then grabbed the box of turtle filters. She found Merlin's rope and was trying to chew that up! I think I will be saying
"McKenzie No" very soon!hahahahaha This should all be very interesting!
Star Wars was good and they enjoyed it. Next one won't be out for a year and a half. Ian and Jennifer already want to go see it again.
Oh I don't think Bo should be on the bad list. I'm sure she just is doing what comes naturally to her. I think that McKenzie will learn how to do everything right soon!
I hope your day was awesome!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!
I am sorry for not getting around much the last few days. I am not sure who I have told and who I have missed, but the puppy is coming home with dad. She is about 6 months old and the vet said she had been out longer than just 3 days. Probably dumped by a truck driver since she was at a truck stop. Dad can attest to the fact that having a puppy in a truck is not a good idea!
She has mange and anemia. The mange is not the contagious kind so Merlin and I will be fine. She is taking meds for it and it will be gone in about 3 weeks. We are preparing for her to come home tomorrow. We named her McKenzie. Have not had a puppy for a long time so we are trying to puppy proof the place. Not easy since we don't really know what she is going to try to get into. Mom made a wall out of a cardboard box and put it around the computer so she can't get to any of those cords. She will be supervised all the time so there will not be any disasters.
She and dad are in central Oregon right now and dad told mom McKenzie is just fascinated with all the trees. If she likes trees then she came to the right place to live!
Star Wars premier tonight! I'll be in solitary until they get back! Mom added another toy and she'll be sure that I have plenty of snacks.
Sure hope your mom is finding some time just to relax. It sounds like she is so busy! I think moms are always busy!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's spectacular!
love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! I am so sorry I didn't get by this weekend. Mom took Jennifer down to her dads house and then picked her up yesterday! It was slow going with all the rain! Sun is out today! Almost forgot what that looked like!
Dad is in Gallup where it was 29 degrees this morning. When dad went into the truck stop to get some coffee he found a dog shivering by the door! The people at the truck stop said it had been there for 3 days! People were feeding her Subway sandwiches! Dad picked her up and put her in the truck where is was nice and warm. He gave her some lunch meat because that is all he had that was suitable for a dog. She drank 3 bowls of water and then curled up on the passenger seat and went to sleep! Dad located a vet because she has a cut on her jaw and dad said it looked infected. She is at the vet now. They told dad to call back around 2:30 central time since both the vets were in surgery. They are going to scan her for a microchip also but dad doesn't think she'll have one. Don't know if she was dumped or got lost but she'll be okay now. Dad was going to look for a shelter, which turns out to be right next door to the vet, but mom told him not to be crazy! Just bring her home! Animals that were meant to be part of our family always seem to find us! We are just praying she is healthy! Her picture is in my gallery.
Oh! Dad found a horse on the side of the road too but he called the police to handle that! Guess it wouldn't fit in the truck!hahahahahaha Ian said that people in Gallup don't seem to be able to take care of their animals! The horse just got outside the fence somehow but dad was afraid it would get hit by a car. They got the owner and the horse is safely home now!
Enjoy your day!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Morning sweet Mr Barnacles-love from Jenny Lynn
...thanks again for stopping by my page, you sure are a handsome little fellow! You have a lot tools at outside your window, I love my window also, I would love to fly free with the wild birds! My goodness, we are approaching mid-December, and our temps our in the 60's for the next several days, strange weather! Our dad had a hard time sleeping last night, and just trying to go to sleep can wear you out! The time sure is flying by quickly these days, maybe it's just the old timer in dad talking! He has made the decision to not attend our bird club banquet tonight, he just don't want to chance it just yet! Here's hoping you all have a great Saturday, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny, daddy & our Dallas family

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day. Bit of a break in the rain right now! The gardeners are here but lets get real! Everything is too soggy to mow so they are using the blower thingy to clean up which is silly since the maintenance guy sweep the whole place every morning. I think they should just walk next door to Starbucks and relax and have some coffee. Being a gardener is a very hard job!
The lights are on the tree and a couple of my Hello Kitty ornament are at the top. Merlin went over to check out the lights but then left to get some treats. Food works every time with that cat!
I'm sitting here on moms shoulder keeping an eye on that tree. She took me over to it so I could see my Hello Kitty ornaments but I didn't want to get too close. A bird can never be too careful you know.
Are there a lot of people sick out there or just taking time for the holidays? We thought your mom only worked 2 or 3 days a week at the most! She must be tired. Ian has been working 6 days a week for the last 3 weeks and at first he was saying how tired he was, especially since he is on graveyards for a few months! Then he got his check today and suddenly is okay with it all!hahahahahaha Ian has always been very good with his money so mom doesn't have to worry about him blowing it all on something impulsive!
I hope you have a fantastic day! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Captain~~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Mom finished up the Christmas cards yesterday which is why I did not get a chance to get notes out! I'm not allowed to touch them so I don't see what good they are! I do get to look at them but I'm sure ripping it a bit would be much more fun!
Still raining here. Not really unusual for this time of the year but we are just getting bigger rain storms this year. The wind is back too! It might be time to see if I can figure out how to build and ark!hehehehehe Nope! We are on the second floor and there is a moat around the buildings so not much chance of flooding here. Driving is a challenge. There are "Water over the roadway" signs everywhere. It doesn't seem to make everyone slow down though. Mom had been hit with a wave a couple of times now. She doesn't drive crazy so she has been just fine.
The tree is still sitting there naked as can be! Perhaps mom will get the lights on it today. Once Merlin figured out there was no food on it, he has ignored it. We'll see how it goes with lights on it. I imagine the ornaments are going to be the real test. Cats are such a bother!
I suppose having Bo around is sort of like having a cat only he's cuter and doesn't try to bite! That was a smart idea to put his cuddle toys under there to keep him from chewing the tree. Ours is an artificial one so I don't think Merlin would be interested in chewing it! Ian is waiting to see how I react once it's got lights and ornaments!
Enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Captain, Bo, and momma-love from Jenny Lynn
...it is a pleasure to meet you and have you visit my page, you have a sweet family! Yesterday dad's nurse visit went well, all his numbers were great, but he works hard to make that happen! He only cheats once in awhile with sweet things, but never any salt, it is a killer and everybody loves it on their food! Dad has a few errands to go on today but otherwise we have a very uneventful day planned! Have a great day our dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see you all tomorrow as usual...

Much love from Jenny, daddy, & our Dallas family

  Hello Captain~
I hope you had a great day! It's really, really wet up here! Guess we are breaking records for it being dark and wet!
Mom did a bit of shopping today. She went to get the oil changed too. Jennifer got off early so mom went to get her and then they went to the Mexican place up the street. Ian and mom are both off tonight so it was a good time for them to go out for dinner! Mom had veggie frajitas and they were so good! She brought back some chips so I could have one!!
We put the tree up but it's not decorated. The lights are not even on it! We have to let Merlin get use to it for a while. He is very interested in it but has gone back to take a nap on the sofa. I think when the ornaments are on it he will probably knock them all off! It should be an interesting season!hahahahaha
Have a great night!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Still stormy here. Lots and lots of wind! Mom had to play dodge the tree branches on the way to work last night!
Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night so I am very happy! I don't know if we have anything planned but I'm sure I can come up with something!
I think mom is going to put the tree up finally. It is going to be very interesting to see how Merlin reacts to it. He's never been around a Christmas tree yet. I think there is going to be a lot of cleaning up to do!!
I thinks it's so cute that Bo wants to be with your mom all the time! I'm the same way! Unfortunately, Merlin is also the same way. Mom has to lock him out when the two of us are playing otherwise I will bite her! Merlin's problem is that he wants attention all the time!
I hope the day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!

  Hi Captain Barnacles-from a new friend Jen Lynn
....you leave the cutest notes on my best friend Ms Sugar's page, we just wanted to get to know you guys, hope you don't mind! Today is Pearl Harbor Remembrance day, and on a happier note, it is also our family's anniversary of joining the BC in 2007, Jenny was first and the rest came a few months later! It started out as a curiosity, but soon caught on as one of our favorite friend making venues, we still love it, but we have seen many birds come and go over the years! We would be lost without all our BC friends and families! Dad's back is feeling better today, he hasn't tried to bring our tree in again yet! Have a great Monday dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see you all tomorrow...

Love always from Jenny Lynn, daddy, & our Dallas family

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Dark, wet and windy here! Know what it's going to be for the next week? Ditto! It's the rainy season! I don't expect anything different this time of the year!
Mom just got back from dropping Jennifer off at her dads house. I don't know if they have any plans but she didn't go last week so his house is probably pretty messy at this point!hehehehehe Jennifer will get it straight again! I think he is going to go to Florida around the 20th and spend Christmas there so Jennifer and her sisters are going to have Christmas on January 3rd when he gets back. More than one Christmas sounds like a good plan to me!
Not much else going on around here today! I'm just gonna munch and play while mom gets my notes done!
You enjoy your day!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! Kind of stormy around here today but I do live in Washington!hahahahahaha
Sorry for the short note today but mom's carpal tunnel thingy is hurting today! She has to remember to do more with her left hand so she doesn't wear out the right one! It hasn't hurt for a really long time but she's been slacking with the exercise and now she is paying for it!
Nothing very interesting going on around here today anyway. We did get a notice on the door telling us that the water/sewer/trash is going up $17.50 a month. They say it's due to a change in the economy! Who's economy???hehehehehe It's the one part of living here that mom hates. The water is not metered so they do it by your square footage. We have 3 bedrooms so no matter how much we conserve, and we do conserve, it depends on how much the other 350 apartment use! It's still a nice place and they are pet friendly so that sort of makes up for it!
Enjoy the day!!!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a fun day! Lots of cleaning going on around here. My play cage was clean when I came out of the night cage this morning! I decided to take a shower while mom was cleaning out the turtle tank! It just seemed like the proper thing to do since everything is being cleaned! I need to be clean too!
Mom had to turn the fireplace back on until I dry off. Merlin plopped his big furry self right in front of it and is sleeping there. I know that there is no way that cat is cold! Mom never lets the house get below 70 and with all that fur, he just can't be cold. Must be some strange cat thing!
Mom got the Christmas cards out and she bought the stamps last month. Now she just needs to get going on them! I will be here to supervise and rip up anything she needs to get rid of! Mom knows what a blessing it is to have a bird who loves to help out!
I am very happy that Kaji is on board with the BOTM! I think we all need something good to focus on since there are so many bad things going on with our BC family right now! Kaji should have been to the castle a long time ago and having him as our first BOTM for 2016 will be excellent!
Enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Captian~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It was a better day today but we still have Kallie on our minds! It is going to take a while to feel normal again.
Falco came up with a great idea for BOTM. Kaji 43005 has been on BC for a very long time and has never been BOTM. I think it's time we get him that crown. It would not be right to expect his mom to blog so I hope I can count on you to go by everyday and leave a vote! His avatar is posted on the calendar page to make it easy to get to his page!
Mom went to the market this afternoon. She just went to the one across the street so she wasn't gone for long. When she came back we watched Inside Out. I liked it. It made me giggle! Yesterday we watched San Andreas! Not a great story but lots of action!
We are under another winter storm watch. We had a tiny bit of snow yesterday morning but it went away quickly. Dad is heading to Denver and it's 50 and sunny there!! Lucky guy!!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!
Mom had to be in at 9 pm last night since the store opened at 5 am. Ian didn't start until 10 so he had mom drop him off at the mall. Toys R Us is at the back of the mall. The Mall opened at 6 pm. It was crazy! No parking spots to be had!!! It's a pretty big mall too. Mom couldn't believe it! Ian told her this morning that most of the stores were open and the food court was too!
Mom was running all night getting everything signed and ready for the shoppers. There were a bunch of them too right at 5 am. Everyone was in a good mood and having fun. Some were even dressed up in ugly Christmas sweaters and crazy looking headbands! They were really in to it! Mom and Ian are both thankful that is it over for another year!
Dad spent Thanksgiving in Phoenix. He went to a place called Cracker Barrel. He enjoyed it! He is off to Oklahoma City now!
Mom is pretty wiped out so it will be an early day for us! I don't mind. I'm just glad she is home! Ian bought her a copy of the Polar Express when he was at the mall last night so we watched it this morning. It's one of moms favorite movies! I thought it was pretty good!
It sounds like you had some pretty awesome food! I am especially interested in the pie! Did you and Bo get some??
I hope the lighting goes well and that everyone enjoys themselves!! Mom might get motivated next week and actually put the tree up!!
I hope your day is wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥
