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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I hope you have a fabulous day!
It is sunny and pretty up here. We are starting out at 30 but will end up near 60. Spring!!
Mom got the filters for the vacuum dried out and put back in so I know she'll be using that evil machine today! McKenzie is shedding and it's awful! Mom has been brushing her but she thinks it's a game so it's slow going. There are still clumps of fur all over! Mom sweeps them up before she vacuums. She has to sweep up all the treats I threw out of the cage for the puppy too! I'm just doing my part with the puppy duty!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's just spectacular!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Pretty quite day around here. We have all wanted moms attention today so she is finding it difficult to get anything done.hehehehehehe It is our weekend so we don't really need to rush to get anything done.
The rain finally stopped. Jennifer was happy because they could let the kids at daycare go outside to play. They are much easier to control if you can let them do some running around! Sounds very much like a puppy!
Don't know what plans we have for the next few days. Mom is going to catch up on some sleep and I imagine we will be doing some chores. Nothing exciting about that but at least mom will be home with us.
I'm sitting here watching Sailor Moon with Jennifer. It's in Japanese so I have no idea what is going on! Mom says the closed captioning is not helping at all! Guess I'll just enjoy the colors!

  Hello Captain~~
I'm Here!! I hope you guys had a great day! We had some nasty storms last night and today. We lost power! It went out this morning but came back on after about 10 minutes. It kept flickering off and on and then it went off and stayed off for 3 and a half hours! We sat on the sofa and watched a movie on moms Kindle. Actually, mom fell asleep with Merlin on her lap and McKenzie on the right. I was on the left in my play cage. We all sort of took a nap! The power came back on just before mom left to pick up Ian.
Mom is off tonight so she can get some sleep. Starting next week her regular days off are switching to Tuesday night and Wednesday night. That way mom will always be there for the weekend ads they throw in a couple times a month. At least she gets two days off in a row. Saturday night she has to go in at 10 since the time change happens and they will lose an hour. Hate the time change!!!!

I hope you are having a great day!! Happy Pancake Day!! Guess what I had for breakfast??hahahahaha Yep! Pancakes! Mom bought me a box of silver dollar pancakes so I can have them whenever I want them! She is such a good mom!
Mom bought the digital copy of Mockingjay Part 2 today. She'll buy the DVD when it comes out on the 22nd but she wanted to have all 4 movies on her Kindle. I have gotten to see part of it but mom has had to chase McKenzie around so she keeps pausing it. I think it's nearly nap time for the puppy so maybe I'll get a chance to watch the rest of it. I like mom's Kindle! When we read books on it I like to tap it with my beak and make the pages turn!! It's fun!!!

I hope you had a wonderful day! I apologize for the c/p today but it's the only way I'm going to get notes out today! Mom is doing okay. The pain from the shingles is really less but the itching is worse!hahahahaha She'll be taking some Benadryl tonight and getting lost of sleep!
As for our BOTM this month, Kacey and Mikey are running together! They celebrated their 4th anniversary today and I think it's awesome that this young couple will be doing this together. Don't know if they can blog yet but I hope you will leave a vote anyway! The page number is 229611. Look for the wedding avatar on the calendar page!
As most of you have already heard, BC is going to eventually convert our site. It will probably be like the Reptile channel which is a magazine format. That means no blogs. They will not be fixing the site so that means Julio will probably be in the spotlight box until the site changes! I hope every bird will go to the Facebook Bird Community page to leave notes. If you don't have a Facebook page it's easy to sign up. You do not have to put any information that could be used to steal your identity. I have a page under my name with just my birthday and state where I live. If you are not comfortable with Facebook please remember mine and moms emails! We really care about you all and want to keep in touch! Mom is eileenmc2@hotmail.com and I am at sugarmcclelland@gmail.com.

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a lovely day. Mom just got back from dropping off dad to pick up his truck. I have been taking a shower and I am now making lots of noise to let mom know I did not like her being gone!
Right after she got back from there, she and Ian went across the street to gas up the car. Ian owed mom money so she told him he could pay for the gas this week. Only $1.79 a gallon. We have to pay lots of extra taxes on our gas since we don't have a state tax, so $1.79 is really good!
We got more laundry done this morning and got the kitchen cleaned up also. There always seem to be laundry around here. Wonder why?? Feathers are so much easier to care for!

I hope you are having a great day! BC seems okay right now but it has been such a mess lately that every bird is having problems. Julio has been in the BOTD box for 4 days now!
Mom had to go to the doctor this morning because she got this strange rash on her neck. Turns out she has Shingles!hahahahaha She's only been 60 for 3 weeks and she already has an old persons disease!hahahahaha
There is a vaccine for it but it's too late now! She has to go get some medicine and take it for the next 10 days. She is suppose to get lots of rest but we all know that's not going to happen! At least dad will be home later today and he can take over puppy duty while mom gets some sleep! Once she is better then she can get the vaccine.
I have been playing with my new toys and driving the dog crazy with my bell! It's pay back for all those stupid squeaky toys she is always chomping on!!!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Glad to be able to blog again. I got kicked off on Saturday afternoon and couldn't get back on. The BOTD kept changing for Julio to Sherman and Peabody so I knew something was wrong. I kind of had a feeling that something was up since the BOTD has not been on BC for over 5 years. I suppose all websites have problems. At least I was able to vote for Laka both days even if I couldn't leave notes!
Nothing exciting going on here anyway so no one missed any news from me!
I'm really sorry the Milonga had to be rescheduled. I'm sure it will still be fabulous!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just spectacular!

Still got rain but it's been in the 50's for the past few days. Last night the crickets and frogs were out singing their little heads off! Maybe that groundhog was correct and spring will be here early. That would be nice. I think we could all use a bit of spring.
Did your parents have their dock owners meeting? I think when the weather is so nasty everyone should just stay home.
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's just perfect!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! Happy Valentine's Day! Here is a heart just for you! ♥
Mom gave McKenzie a bath today and mom was drenched! She had to change her clothes and mop the bathroom. The dog smells good now and the bathroom is clean!hahahahahaha I dumped a bunch of seeds, nuts and pellets for McKenzie since I felt sorry for her. I think maybe mom doesn't like me doing that but I have to be a good fister and share!
Several people have asked mom if McKenzie is part coyote. One of the vet techs at our vet said that she was part coyote. Mom thought she was kidding but we researched it and it is possible! One of the nurse who takes care of the young man downstairs said that she has a friend who has a coyote hybrid and he looks just like McKenzie. It certainly would explain why she is so wild and why she makes this funny howling noise when she yawns! Doesn't really matter since there are no health concerns. Mom is just going to have to be firm about the training and let convince McKenzie that mom is the alpha. This should be very interesting!
We are having a rainy Valentine's Day but it's not cold at all. I feel awful for any bird who lives out East. When you get temps with a minus in front of them, it's bad. I'm sure every bird is staying nice and warm and cozy!
I hope your day is just wonderful! I'm leaving a vote and a big hug!!
With love ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Captain~
I hope the day was great! Mom had to take McKenzie to the vet this morning and it took longer than she thought it would. McKenzie got to see Dr. Jennifer who is my vet! Lucky girl!
McKenzie still has to take the mange medicine for another month even though the mites are dead. She got her last shot also. Mom had planned on taking her to Petco after the vet visit but the spots where they did the scrapings to check the mange was bleeding so mom didn't want to take her around other pets and people. She is not contagious but the spots she has makes people nervous. We have to wait for her obedience classes because of that and she can not be spayed until it's cleared up since anesthesia can cause stress and put us back to the beginning with the mange! Since she is now on her 3rd month of meds, we don't want to go backwards!
This is moms last night of vacation! Bummer!! We had a nice time but sure do wish it could have lasted longer!
I hope the storm is not horrible. They say that the winds might be pretty strong so I hope they don't do any damage or knock power out! You and Bo stay warm!
I hope your evening is perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  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!

  Hello Captain~
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!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  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!
With Love ~ Sugar ♥

  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!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥
