Hope you guys had a great Sunday. It was lovely here. We didn't do a lot today. Mom is off for the next four nights! No plans yet but there are still lots of chores that need to get done around here. Tonight I think all mom wants to do is get some sleep so she has enough energy to get things done!hehehe
Enjoy your evening!

  Hello Captain~~
Hope you are having a great day! Chilly up here too. We were suppose to get a warm up today and tomorrow but I don't think it's going to happen.
Half a treat is perfect!hahahahaha Don't know why I didn't come up with that on my own!! Ian is not much for cakes and sweets anyway. He did get pizza for him and Jennifer last night. Of course they shared it with me! There was a buy one get one at Domino's. Seemed like the entire town was taking advantage of that!
Last night the traffic was heavy but mom knew it would be. If she can get past the fairground before 10 pm she can make the drive all the way on the freeway. If not she ends up getting off where everyone else is getting on and takes the streets. It doesn't really take too much longer it's just a bother.
One more night and we get our mini vacation. Can't wait. We are going to get the fall decor out and put some fall color into the living room. Maybe the dining room too! Mom has a lovely fall tablecloth but Merlin tends to dive onto the table to avoid McKenzie and that usually sends the tablecloth flying.hehehehehe
Enjoy the day and let me know if you can figure out how to get Bo on a treadmill! That is something I would love to see!

Hope you are having a fabulous day! Happy Autumn! It's cool and rainy here. Suppose to clear up by 1 or 2 but since it's already 3, I don't think it's going to happen.
I am being loud today. Just feeling the joy! Mom is not enjoying it since she finally got McKenzie quieted down and now I'm yelling! Someday's it's not much fun to be mom!
Only 2 night to go and mom will have 4 nights off. Only 2 more nights of fair traffic too! Tonight is Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy. Ian said mom should leave right now!hahahahaha She can always get off the freeway and take the streets. She leaves herself plenty of time to do that.
How exciting to have mom and dads birthday in the same week! I hope they both have a wonderful day and get to do something special. Ian pointed out that today is his 1/2 birthday! Don't get treats for 1/2 birthdays.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

I hope you had a fun day. It was pretty boring around here but that is okay.
Mom did lots of laundry and cleaning. I got bored with supervising pretty quickly so I played with a toy and had some snacks.
Tonight we watched Zootopia. It was very cute. Not lots of action but it was still a fun movie.
Enjoy your evening!

I hope you guys are having a great day! Nice here even though it keeps raining really hard and then clearing up and then raining again! Typical Autumn weather! Tomorrow is the last day of Summer!! Heard that you got rain also!
Mom had to run over to Walmart after she picked Ian up. She forgot to pick up the food for George and Gracie. Walmart always takes way too long but there are only a few stores around that sell the turtle food. The market across the street stopped stocking it when they did a remodel last year!
That was a very strange football games yesterday! Three of my Hawks got hurt! I did not like that at all. Then it was all field goals! Not one touchdown! It was nice that the Rams won their first game back in LA but I would have rather seen my Hawks win it! They are still my Hawks win or lose!
McKenzie went out for her afternoon walk and Frank was out there. Rocky the little terrier that lives across from us was there too! McKenzie didn't know if she should say Hello to Frank or to Rocky!! Rocky does not like Frank! Actually, Rocky does not seem to like anyone! He growls at McKenzie but her head is bigger than Rocky so it's not an issue. I think Rocky just likes mom making a fuss over him! McKenzie went with Frank in the end!
I hope you have an awesome rest of the day!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! Sorry I have not been getting notes out but the router died and trying to stay online was not working out! We got the new one yesterday and Ian installed it. So far so good!! Ian says it's better than the old one and will last a long time!
The UPS guy never even came to the door. He left the router at the office. Luckily Ian gets notifications about his packages and he knew it was there. I guess the UPS guy was running late and couldn't get to all the apartments. There are a lot of them here and I can see it would take a long time. First time that has ever happened. Ian said there was a bit stack so I bet the office staff was not happy about that. They log everything and lock it in a storage room. You have to sign for the package before you can take it. They know Ian and Jennifer because the two of them are always getting stuff!
McKenzie got a new tennis ball this morning and is playing catch with this one instead of chewing it to bits! Don't know how long that is going to last but she seems happy to play catch. Mom was not happy to have to sweep up all those pieces of hard rubber from the inside of the tennis ball she chewed up!
I hope you are all have a lovely weekend. The pictures of the Viking ship were so awesome! How much fun was that? Mom use to love to see the Clipper ships out in Chesapeake Bay when she was a kid. She did get to see one down in Portland a few years ago! They are so beautiful!
Enjoy your day and I hope the day is just perfect!

  Hello Captain~
Hope your day was fun! It was fairly quiet around here today! We had nothing but internet problems yesterday or I would have been here sooner!! It's the router and we need a new one. Mom is letting Ian decide which one to get since she wouldn't know what was best. The one we have has lasted for a long time so mom would probably just get the same kind. Ian says we don't need to spend a lot of money on it, so that's good!
Mom took Ian to the post office before his work and before they even got there his work called and asked him to come in at noon instead of 9. They are short on hours and needed someone in the afternoon. Ian didn't mind since he already has overtime this week. With the fair going on in town none of the stores have been very crowded. They came home and mom took him to work at noon and then took Jennifer to work at 12:30.
Mom did laundry and cleaned the kitchen and bathrooms. I supervised! McKenzie was doing her usual running around so it took much longer to get anything done. Mom spends a couple of hours a day working with McKenzie but she is still pretty wild. She has gotten very good at sitting down but she still jumps up on people and still yanks the leash. I'm sure she will get it eventually. She is very smart but very stubborn also!
We bet Molly and her parents can find a nice place down in the San Diego area. There are a lot of suburbs down there that won't be too far from the base. Mom has actually been to that base many years ago. We think they will like it down there. Mom has a friend who recently moved down there for a teaching job. They keep in touch on FB.
Hope your evening is just wonderful! Give Bo a big hello from me! Hope she stayed out of trouble today!hehehehehe

Hope you are all enjoying your day and I hope you are having fun with your bird friend! That is so cool!!
Cookie said it was pretty icky out there!! Sorry about that! Autumn is really close now!!
I am so sorry I did not get by yesterday. Dad was on the computer all day and when we tried to log in to BC last night before mom went to work, it gave me an error page! I thought it was closed down but I was able to get here today!
Something happened with our computer so that was probably it. Mom could not get Google Chrome up today and ended up restarting the computer. Works great now!hehehehe Moms answer to any computer problem is to restart it! It works so I'm not saying a thing!hehehehehehe
Another really nice day here. I am betting lots of people will be going to the fair today since it's sunny and not hot. Ten more days before it's over and mom can stop leaving early! Last night was not bad at all so hopefully tonight will be okay also!!
San Diego is a nice place. Mom has been there lots of times. We think Peter and his family will enjoy it! Hopefully your mom and dad can go out to visit a few times. Lots of fun things to do there. Will they be living on base? I was just wondering if Molly would go to school on base. All the times mom moved when she was little, she never went to school on base. She went to Catholic school so that is probably why! Might have been interesting to go to school on base.
Have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Captain~
Hope you had a fabulous day!!
The bus schedule has changed so I am not going to see the little kids get on the bus. School really is starting at different times this year. The little kids are going in an hour early and the high school kids are going in an hour later. Someone did a study and found that if the high school kids get extra sleep they do better at school! My question is, why don't they just go to be an hour earlier??? They certainly are not going to be able to start work an hour later so they can get more sleep!! And if they do start an hour later who says they won't stay up an hour later at night! I know! I'm on a soap box!hehehehehehe I just don't like missing the little kids getting on the school bus in the mornings! Guess no one cares about the Jr. High kids cause nothing changed for them! Like Aunt Mary, your mom is a teacher so she might have a different view. When mom was a kid everyone started school at the same time!
We just did chores today and it wasn't too boring. I spent time chewing up some wood and having snacks. Mom found 2 tennis balls and 2 of McKenzie's toys under the sofa. One of the toys has already been destroyed. McKenzie also chewed up a rather large cardboard box. Her chewing skills really are impressive!!
We so enjoyed the dancing video on FB. Molly is just so precious! Great dancer too!! I have been know to break into a dance when the feeling hits me! Not as coordinated as Molly though!
Hope you have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Hope the day is going great!! Oh silly mom left early thinking there was going to be tons of traffic and there wasn't any at all! Maybe the concert was still going on! Anyway, mom got to work an hour early!!! She played solitare on the Kindle! It was nice quiet time for her even if she was sitting in the parking lot! Tonight is Tim McGraw so she'll leave early again. She is charging the Kindle right now just in case!hahahahaha

A cool and windy Sunday but so far it's been quiet. We haven't really done anything interested!!

When mom went over to the seasonal department last night to hang tags on the Back to School stuff, the entire back wall is filled with Christmas lights and outdoor decorations! You know what every customer said when they saw it? "Christmas already?"hahahahaha It's the same every year. And so it begins!

We were so thrilled to see pictures from Molly's birthday party on Facebook!! She is just beautiful and it looks like everyone enjoyed the party. What an exciting weekend your parronts have had!! I hope you and Laura had fun also!

Enjoy the day and I do hope it's spectacular!!

Congratulations to the new Commander!!! I know your mom and dad are both so proud of him. We are very thankful for his service to our country!!
Happy Birthday to Molly!! We hope she has lots of fun at her party!! Can't believe she is 5 already and in school! I am just glad she likes school. We hope it will always be a wonderful experience for her.
Same old stuff going on around here. McKenzie just finished a walk and then went racing around the house. I think she might be tired out now and will take a nap! I could use a few moments of peace and quiet!
We hope your parronts enjoy their trip and we can't wait to see pictures! Such and exciting weekend for your family!!

I hope you and Bo had a lovely day! When are your parronts leaving? I hope they have a nice time.
Been busy with chores around here. Mom is trying to get them all done but McKenzie has been pretty wild here today.
The neighbors were moving more things in today. McKenzie was barking. Mom stops her. She does not want her being the kind of dog who barks all the time. Mom took her out and the neighbors had left boxes all over the walkway and of course McKenzie wanted to check them all out. Mom told here they were not hers to play with.
Not much else going on around here at the moment. Mom is off tonight and hoping to finish up all the project she wants to get done.
I hope your evening is just wonderful!

Hope the day is going well and that the new washer and dryer are there and ready to go!! It's going to be so nice to have new ones. The newer one are so much more efficient and don't use as much power either! Ours is very old but it belongs to the apartment complex not us! It works so I suppose that is all that matters.
It is going to be so nice for your parronts to go visit with the granddaughter and to see their son promoted!! They must be so proud of him. Master and Commander!!! I know they don't use that title here but that is how is started out! He is going to look so handsome in his new uniform!
McKenzie has been busy chasing a fly today! I think Bo and her oatmeal ball is a much better idea. I have no idea what McKenzie will do if she catches it but she had better not eat it! Mom is very strict about not eating strange things! It's difficult with the dog since she tries to eat everything that gets dropped in the parking lot and the dog parks! Mom wishes people were better at cleaning up after themselves!
I know you and Bo are going to have a wonderful time with Laura. She is a very special lady and it's so nice that your mom won't have to worry about you.
Tell your mom good luck with the packing and we hope she gets some rest before they leave!!

Hope the day is going great! Still nice and cool and windy here. Autumn is not far away now! I do love Autumn.
We have neighbors moving in across the stairwell from us and McKenzie keeps running to the door and barking every time they stomp up the stairs. They must have little kids because little kids are the ones who love to stomp up stairs. McKenzie barks, I growl and Merlin is sleeping through the entire thing! We are driving mom nuts. She just wanted a nice quite Sunday! Like that was going to happen with us around!hahahaha
Nothing else going on today. Mom will pick Ian up in a few minutes and then head off to bed. She has 2 more night and then we will get our weekend. Can't wait.
We got to see a picture of the boat on Facebook. It's beautiful. We were always trying to picture in our mind what kind of boat it is! Just beautiful and it was so cool to see the ducks and Spirit also.

Hope your day is going great. So much cooler here today! I am loving it. We have wind and clouds and it's just beautiful. Lots of leaves blowing all over the place. Dorky McKenzie was chasing them. I think she thought they were some sort of snack. She did put one in her mouth but spit it out pretty quickly! The neighbors upstairs from us have 2 little girls and they tend to drop food all around our car. They park next to us. McKenzie grabbed a chocolate one of them threw down and mom had to pry it out of her mouth!! Mom picks up when she sees things because she doesn't want McKenzie to get sick eating something she should not.
Got the fridge pulled out and vacuumed this morning. Then mom cleaned out the inside. Not much to clean out in there really. She needs to get over to the market and get more stuff for the inside! I am waiting for more romaine for my chop!

Hope the day was lovely! How exciting to be getting a new washer and dryer!! I bet they will be much more efficient than the older ones! We would have liked to have had our own here but they do not allow it.
We finally got the fireplace fixed! It's taken nearly 3 months and it is the hottest day of the year, but one day we will be happy that it is working again! It now has a digital thermostat and that will be very nice!
We looked up the Marina and watched some youtube videos about the area! Just beautiful! We saw the Blue Pig! How cool is that? I'm going to get Cookie to go there with me! Would you like to join us?
Everyone is in the living room tonight because that is where the portable A/C is! It was 95 today. Much too hot for us! Tomorrow will be 76 which is more normal!
When are the parronts leaving to go to the grands house? It is going to be so nice for them to visit with their son and of course the beautiful Granddaughter! I bet she will have lots to tell your mom about school!
Our school district lost 25 new school buses to fire on Tuesday. Don't know what caused the fire yet. They are getting loaner buses from other districts so that they can start school on September 6th as planned.

We got a lot of chores done this morning. Laundry is still going. Hopefully mom can get the bathrooms finished up and then on Friday we can just relax and enjoy her one night off! Movie night with popcorn!! YAY!!!
The gardeners are here a day early for some reason. Mom had McKenzie out this morning and Frank joined them for the walk. He seems to be bothered by the noises from the mowers so mom and McKenzie walked him home and he went in his house. Wish they would keep him in all the time. He is a sweetheart and mom loves to see but he really needs to stay inside!
You all enjoy the day!

Mom is off tonight but she is so tired we are not going to get much done. She was hoping to get the chores done so that when she is off again on Friday night we can just have our movie night. Still don't know what we are going to watch. She will check out Redbox and see what is available.
Mom's store started to get Christmas stuff in last night!hahaha
Artificial trees, lights and outdoor decor! Most of Halloween is already back there. It actually won't be too long before that stuff goes out. The Christmas stuff will go out then also. They call it "early Christmas". Mom is not ready to even think about that yet! It is nice to see the Halloween stuff and what sort of decorations they have this year!
Wish I could have seen Bo with the hay! That is so funny. I know how to open the container with my Higgins in it but I am not allowed near it since I would dump it!
Thanks for the prayers for dad. He is doing well. He is in Nevada tonight.
It is very cool that they have a pool at the marina! Is it Westerly Marina? We looked up to see what marina was near you and see pictures of it! It's just beautiful and there are so many boats there!!
Enjoy the rest of your day! Tell your mom that she is just beautiful! We saw her picture on FB! Hope she swims for enjoyment also!!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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