  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!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  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!

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!

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!

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!!

  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!

I hope you are having a great day! It's starting out cool and misty here! Just the way it should be!
Only 2 more days until the fair is over down in town! It's really fun but there is way too much traffic down there during the fair time. My skin sister's boss went yesterday and brought back a whole bag of fair scones for us! YUMMY! Mom has the mix so we can make more at another time. They have raspberry jam in them!
Can you believe that it is the last day of summer?? I had a nice summer but I just love Autumn. Pretty colors and really yummy squash! Halloween too! Guess I had better start thinking about a costume!
I hope your day is just perfect!

  Hello Captaiin~
I hope you had a wonderful day! I'm doing just fine. It's dark and cloudy on one side of the hose and very sunny on the other side! It looks so cool!
We are still struggling with the computer so it limits our time during mom's workweek! I hope you don't think I haven't been thinking about you, because I have! It can take us an hour just to get 3 notes out and when mom has to work that night, we just run out of time! I don't think it will be too long before dad can get it fixed up.
How was the Birthday party? I bet the little grand baby had a great time and really loved the book your mom wrote for her! That is such a precious present!
I am watching the Mikado with the skin sister! It's got lots of music and for some reason it is making me giggle! I don't usually like operas but this one seems to be funny!
I do hope you enjoy your evening!!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's very pretty here today and I've been enjoying myself.
Nothing exciting going on unless you find laundry exciting. I don't! I do like climbing into the basket of towels and assisting mom in folding them. I'm actually very good at it! For some reason everyone thinks I should stay away from their clothes! I think they think I am going to chew them up!
We are still having computer problems but it's not the new stuff that got installed the other day. Mom is still trying to figure it all out but so far today we have had to restart 4 times. It is not easy to get notes out when the thing keeps freezing up but I do want you to know that I think about you everyday and I hope to be able to spend more time on notes when the computer is cooperating!
Is your mom subbing this year? So far the kids at the daycare sister works at, are very happy to be back in school!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you had a wonderful Labor Day. It was a quiet one around here. Mom had to work last night but she is off tonight. Dad made it home this morning so I've been sitting here watching "The Right Stuff" with him. It's set at Edwards Air Force Base where we use to live! It really doesn't look any different after all these years!

I bet you had a great time tearing up that paper! I just love doing that. I can sit at the bottom of my cage and rip paper up all afternoon. I like to chew wood too but I don't think that is something you like.

We are so glad that your Navy guy is home. I hope he is going to stay home. We are so proud of him for all his service to our country!

It sounds like your mom has been very busy! Mom got a rug cleaner but when she went to put it together there was no hardware! She had to contact Hoover and they are sending it to her. She was hoping to get it done while it's still warm outside so that the rugs will dry quickly! She has hopes it will be here this week.

Enjoy your evening! Please give my love to Bo!

I hope you are having a great day! Everything is fine here at my nest. I'm having some playtime with mom and soon I will head off to the play cage for my apple.
We have lots of chores to get done today and I think mom is going over to the market to get a few things. It's only at the end of our driveway so she won't be gone long. Later on we will be getting some cooking done. My beans and grains for my mash are soaking and mom will cook those tonight. I am hoping that some corn bread will be on the menu too! A little corn bread to go with my mash sounds like an excellent idea to me!
I do hope you enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still very pretty here and I am enjoying this last month of summer!

Today is the little niece Maddie 2nd birthday! Time flies! The picture in my gallery is from this morning! She is going to have a party today but I don't get to go. I guess one little kid around is okay but a whole bunch of them would be too much for me to take! I'll get to see her soon!

Merlin is shedding, Mandy is shedding and I am molting! That evil vacuum has been out way too much! mom tries to move us to different rooms when she uses it but she has had to use it so much in the past few days that one of us is always around! Merlin doesn't really care about it but it kind of freaks Mandy out! I go into Monster Bird mode and stomp around! Mom thinks it's funny when I do that! A little respect for the zon attitude is needed!!!!

The book your mom is writing sounds so cool!!!! To have a special book that is all yours is going to be a very exciting thing for the little granddaughter! Your mom is so very talented!

I hope you are having a great day! It's still very summery up here and we are enjoying it. It hasn't been too hot at all! It's been nice to have so much sunshine!
It's been a nice quiet day so far. I like the quiet ones!
When mom is working, she keeps her cell phone in the pocket of her apron. When she went on break last night she shoved her wallet into the pocket with the cell phone and accidentally dialed Aunt Theresa!! Mom goes on break at 1am so it was 4am at Aunt Theresa's house! Luckily Aunt Theresa was awake. She told mom that my Ceasaur and Cheeta are both doing well. If you didn't know, they were both bitten by one of their macaw fiblings who had escaped their cage! Ceasaur got his foot hurt and Cheeta ended up with a broken wing. They are both healing and will be just fine! That made me very happy and worth mom being embarrassed about calling at an ungodly hour! I keep telling you all that mom is such a dork!hahahahahahaha
Is your skin brother home yet? We think about him everyday and make sure that he is in our prayers!
I hope you enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and sending hugs your way!

I hope you had a wonderful day. It was a pretty nice one here. We had some computer problems but mom ran a scan and it all seems to be running okay now.
I spent the day supervising chores and playing with toys. Dad is home and he is a bit messy. There is of course tons of laundry stacked in the living room! Really kind of boring around here but that is just fine by me!
Mom did the market thing early today since dad had 2 doctor appointments. He has to squeeze them all in when he is home. I don't know when he is going to go back out on the road.
I hope you have all had some nice weather and that mom and dad are enjoying some boating this summer!

I hope you are all having a wonderful 4th of July! We had some dork across the street blowing off fireworks at 10am this morning! It's sunny out!!!HELLO!!! What fun are fireworks in the sunlight! Anyway about an hour into his sunlight show we smelled smoke and the fire department showed up! I feel so very sorry for firefighters on a day like today! They are going to be so very tired! I hope if he decides to do a nightime show he is more careful.
Fireworks are not allowed in my complex which I am very happy about. I like looking at them but I'm glad they are not allowed around here.

I hope you are enjoying the day! Poor Bo! I bet she is pretty upset about the spa treatment! I don't get that done. They use to have my wings clipped but since I don't fly mom said it was too much stress for me and not necessary! I do have a cement perch to keep my nails in order!
We are so very, very Happy Happy Happy that Peter is coming home soon! We have been praying for him every day since he left! Really!! Every day!
Our Walgreens collects candy and gum to ship to the troops. Mom always says a prayer that some of the stuff we bought goes to Peter! We think they send it through the USO but we think it's very cool to have some Reeses Peanut Butter cups when you are so very far from home!
I bet the new counter is going to be fabulous! Take out is not always bad! Maybe it will be pizza and you will get some crust! I had some last night and it was so yummy!!
Have a fabulous day and tell Bo I send my condolences for her spa treatment!!

I hope you had a great day! I had a pretty good day. Mom has a sinus infection so we just spent a quiet day together.
I have 3 new cousins! Mom's sister took in 3 budgies from a family who moved to Ohio. They had a nice flight cage but no toys and the family just left them in a back room and didn't pay any attention to them! They didn't even have any names! Mom suggested that her sister name them Prue, Piper and Paige after the 3 sister in Charmed. They are 3 little ladies who are 3 years old! Mom told her sister not to look at them directly in the eye and to give them some time to get use to her. She has already bought them all kinds of toys and perches! I think they will be very happy there!
We hope the parents are getting some time out on the boat since it's summer vacation!! I bet the baby ducks are so very cute!!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Happy Summer!

Our first day of summer did not start out so well. There was a dead pigeon on the balcony this morning and it made us all very sad. We could hear the other pigeons cooing and we wonder if they knew what had happened. There was no obvious signs of what it died from so maybe it was just old and it was it's time to go. Still, it was a lousy way to begin summer.

We have a few chores to get done and dad is going to take the rest of his stuff over to his truck. He will leave tonight. Mom will drop him off on her way to work since the truck terminal is in the same town mom works in.

We had a crazy day. The fire alarm people did not show up until nearly noon. They started on the other side of the complex! We had already done all our chores and were just waiting for them to show up. Mom had just gotten on Facebook and went to click on a Linkin Park Video when the fire alarms went off! Mom thought it was feedback from the video and turned the sound down! When the screeching kept going she final realized it was the alarms!hahahahaha
Mandy, Merlin and I were taken into mom's bathroom to wait for the inspection to be done. It was only for 10 minutes but Mandy was freaking out! She was panting hard and kept trying to squeeze behind mom! Merlin just sat in the sink like he always does. I was perfectly okay and just spent time chatting with mom.
Mom had to go to the market after that. She wasn't gone for a long time at least. She and Ian went to the mall to look for shoes for Ian first. He wears a 15 so not all the stores have shoes that big. He found some at Famous Footwear so he's happy! They stopped at Dairy Queen after that. They were taking donations for the children's miracle network at Diary Queen so mom bought a big balloon and put my name on it! It's now hanging at the Dairy Queen in the Mall! I'm gonna be famous!hahahahahaha It's the biggest balloon there!
Did you get your new countertop yet? It must be very exciting to get a new kitchen! I hope you enjoy it!
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! I hope the weather is lovely at your home!
It has been a very boring week so far. Nothing exciting to share!
It is sunny and very nice outside so I have been spending some time watching the people in the complex pool. Always seems silly to me to be splashing around and getting all wet. They all seem to enjoy it though! I have been spending a lot of time playing with my measuring cups this week. Mom got a plastic link chain and hung them from the top of the play cage. I love to slam them into the side of the cage and just swing back and forth with them!
It's our weekend now. I know that cleaning in on the schedule but I don't know what else. I think the dog is going to get a bath but I never see that happen. I just see her when she comes out and prances around! She is such a goof and loves everyone to tell her how pretty she looks after a bath.
I hope everything is just perfect at your nest!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! It's 60 and sunny here. Another trick the tourist kind of day!hahaha
The gardeners are here so I've squawked a greeting to them and yelled at the silly humans in the pool! A good days work so far!
Mom had to go to the market but Jennifer is off today so she was here to keep me company! I don't need anything since I have my apples and a nice big bag of organic grapes so I'm set! Mom looked a the cherries but they are 6$ a pound and not even organic! I like the grapes better anyway. She had to get food for Merlin and even though he's a pest, I wouldn't want him to starve! He would drive us all crazy with his howling if there wasn't any food for him! He howls anyway but it's worse when he wants food!
Mom fell over Mandy when she got up this morning. She is just fine but I thought we were all going to play some kind of game since she was on the floor! I climbed down to peek out under the cage cover and asked her if she was okay. Merlin was sitting at the end of the bed howling for breakfast even though it was very early and Mandy was looking a bit worried! I started laughing and so did mom, so Mandy calmed down. Merlin just kept howling! He's only a cat so we have to forgive him for being unconcerned! It was nice to start the day off with a laugh!
We are so happy to hear that your soldier will be coming home soon! We say a prayer for him every single day. I hope when he gets home he stays home for good.
I hope you enjoy your day and get to do some laughing too!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a fun day! It's still cloudy and rainy here but then it wouldn't be a holiday weekend if it wasn't rainy!Hahahahahahaha
Mom is working her regular schedule so we are getting things ready for her to start her work week tonight. I hear that the cages are going to be cleaned too so I'm not too happy about that. My night cage gets put into mom's shower so I don't ever see that happen. I would get to cranky if I had to see that!
Mom and Ian went to see X-Men yesterday and really enjoyed it. Jennifer didn't want to see it so she hung out with me! We watched Project Runway repeats and it was awful! The snacks were good though.
The family went over to a new Mexican restaurant last night for dinner. Mom said is was okay but not worth the money. They don't go out to eat much so when they do they like to go somewhere spectacular!
Any plans for the long weekend? Are the parronts going to go out on their boat? I hope it's just perfect sailing weather up there!
The voting for Sam 212680 to benefit Iowa Parrot Rescue starts at 12am ESt tonight! I know I can count on you for a vote!
Enjoy the day and I hope it is just perfect!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! The rain came back here last night. We had this beautiful sunny week and now the rain is back for the weekend!hahahahaha It always happens like that. Mom is working and we don't BBQ so it doesn't really matter to us. Nothing stops up here because of the rain because if it did nothing would ever get done!
The fundraiser for Sam 212680 is this Sunday the 25th. I know most birds are already voting for him but if you know some birds that I don't, perhaps you could ask them to drop off a vote!! Falco, Willie and Peppino's mom and Raffikki's mom are going to match the donations so it is going to be a huge gift for the birds who live at the Iowa Parrot Rescue! I know it's a holiday weekend but I hope every bird can spare a few minutes to vote. It just happens that Memorial Day weekend is the day I came to live with mom! I think that is a great reason to celebrate!
I've been doing my part by ripping up mom's notebook with all her notes in it! She has to write everything down so that she remembers who is having a hatchday, etc. I have been shredding the old stuff so she doesn't get confused with too many lists! It's the least I can do since I am so very good at ripping things up!
I hope you enjoy the day and that it is just perfect!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day!

As most of you already know, I came to live with my mom when her sister was unable to care for me anymore! I have known mom for 30 years and been a part of the family for that long! Mom use to bird sit me so when I needed a new place to live she was the logical choice! That and the fact that she has always loved me so very much!

To celebrate my 6th anniversary of being with my mom, I am holding a fund raiser for Iowa Parrot Rescue. I support this rescue every month and am amazed at the awesome job Mike and Abi do to take care of birds in need of a home. I have many friends who are in forever homes who started out at IPR. I am a lucky bird since I have been with my family for 30 years and will continue to live with them until the end of my life. There are many birds who are not as fortunate as us! They have already adopted out many birds this year but for some reason, no Amazons! Being an Amazon, I want to help out my fellow zons!

On May 25th-next Sunday-every vote that Sam gets will mean a dollar contribution for the Iowa Parrot Rescue! You can help by leaving a vote for Sam that day! I really appreciate every vote that will mean money for the IPR! Tell your friends who may not know me and Thank you in advance!!

I know the BC has been slowing down and many birds have lost interest lately but I hope you will all get out to support Sam and the IPR!

I hope your day is just perfect!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are all enjoying the day! It's dry here now but the dark clouds are rolling in again. I'm enjoying watching the flags in front of the complex blow in the wind! They have Tulips on them and are very pretty.
We are just doing the usual Saturday morning cooking. There is chili in the crockpot and chicken cooking on the stove. It's going to be chicken enchiladas. Everyone works different schedules around here so mom tries to get some meals done that everyone can just heat and eat when they have the time. I help out by tasting the tortillas and a few beans just to make sure they are good!hehehehehehe
Not much else going on today. Mom has to get her things ready for her workweek and then get some sleep before she has to head out tonight.
I hope you have a fabulous day! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!
Love you ~ Sugar

  Hello Captain~
I hope all is well at your nest. It's just fine here. We are getting ready for the little niece Maddie who is coming for a visit today. I don't usually like the little humans but Maddie and I get along well. She is rather quiet and I appreciate that! The one's who make a lot of noise and move around too much make me nervous!
I have my cage all neat and tidy! I want to set a good example for the little one! Actually mom wants me to be a good example! I think I should show her how much fun ripping up newspaper can be!
Enjoy the weekend! I hope you get to have lots of fun!

  Hello Captain Barnacles~
I hope you are having the most wonderful Easter ever! Things got busy around here so I have to keep it short today!
We are cooking a ham but we are not really going to have a sit down dinner since mom and Ian are working. Dad is in Montana somewhere! Everyone will eat when they can!

Mom finally got herself an MP3 player. Her's broke months ago and she just can't stand the "Leisure Suit Larry Lounge" music anymore! She found all the music files and started loading songs on the MP3 but when she looked, the songs were not there! It took my genius mom about half and hour to realize that Jennifer had her MP3 player plugged in also so mom put all that music on Jennifer's MP3 player! Boy is she going to be surprised!hahahahahahaha Mom is such a dork!!

Happy Easter!!
With love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar
