  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a lovely day! I had a lovely cranberry scone for breakfast so it's been a great day so far! The gardeners are here but since it's raining they are not going to get much done! I suppose that it will be all bush trimming and sweeping today so it won't be too interesting, Suppose I'll have to find someone else to yell at today!
Mom is cleaning today so I will just supervise and wait for the cooking to start and see what is on the menu for the day!
I do hope you enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug! Please give Bo our love too!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day!! We were checking out the Weather Channel and it is still mighty cold at your house! I think your mom giving up snow for lent is funny!! Only 25 more days util spring! Some of the trees around here already have some buds on them! That is probably because we have had a
non-winter out here.
Nothing interesting going on around here. Mom did the carpets again yesterday so I didn't get much BC time. Today it's laundry which is just about as boring!hehehehehehe I have some new toys in my play cage but I have been busy chatting with mom so they will have to wait until later.
I guess they knew ahead of time they needed your mom to teach this week. Does it usually happen that way? I think it would be very difficult to get a call in the morning saying they needed her right away!
There was a sheriff in Tennessee that put out an arrest warrant for Elsa from Frozen!!! At least he has a sense of humor about the weather. It was very cute!
I hope your day is just wonderful! I know you will be very happy to see your mom when she gets home!
Leaving a vote and a hug for you, Bo and Sailor!!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! Dad is back on the road and it's not New Mexico he was going to, it Colorado! Different story all together. Mom could have sworn he said New Mexico but he tells her he told her it was Pueblo which is in Colorado! Well he got to the yard and they don't think he can make it all the way to Colorado on time so now he is going to Salt Lake City! Good news is that most of the mountain passes between here and there are bare and dry. There is a storm blowing in today but it's mostly wind and it's just not cold enough to snow. We did put the fireplace on for a bit this morning just to warm the room up for me.
Mom is finishing up the laundry and then she'll head off to bed. We had a great weekend but now it's time for the workweek to start! I wish I could be at the Milonga tonight but mom will be sleeping so I won't have a typist! I think I have only made it to one but I always go back on Sunday morning and read all about it!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! I finally have some time to get a note out! Dad has been home for a few days and is now getting ready to head out again. He was suppose to go tomorrow but there might be snow in the mountains tomorrow so he is getting a head start to avoid the snow!
Just the usual stuff going on around here. Lots of cleaning up and boring stuff like that. I have kept myself busy with toys and snacks and lots of play time with mom.
I hope your night is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug! Hope you are staying warm! Spring is only 27 days away!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you guys are having a great day! It's very sunny here but that means it got colder! Still looks nice! I wish you could have sunshine too! All those minus numbers sound awful. I am glad you guys are warm and cozy in your house!
Is your dad feeling all better now? I hope so! Mom and dad will be going out for dinner when dad gets home! Mom says you can always make Valentine's day another day!!
Mom had the day planned out but last night when she was leaving for work, she noticed Mandy chewing on her paw! Mom took a look and found 3 fleas!! NOOOOOOOOOO!!!! We can only assume that the idiot cat brought them back in when he took his dive off the balcony! Mom can't believe she didn't notice them before. Merlin hasn't done much scratching and since he is black so they would be hard to see!
Mandy has had another bath and mom is waiting for her to dry and then they are both getting Frontline put on them. She has to wash all the bedding since Merlin sleeps up there and cleaned the carpets in the bedroom too! I guess she will have to do it all over again when the fleas die! I told mom that cat was too much trouble but did she listen! NO!hehehe
I helped out by yelling the entire time she was giving Mandy a bath. Then I yelled while she was cleaning the bathrooms. I think I have done my part today so it's time to have some apple and start in on a new toy!
I hope your day is wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day!
Happy Valentine's day! Mom is starts her workweek tonight so we are having a little celebration for lunch! There are some yummy apple muffins just waiting for this little zon to sink her beak into them!
We are getting some cooking done and some laundry too. We never seem to run out of laundry for some reason! The dog is going to get another bath and then mom will be off to bed and I'll be off to the night cage to destroy another toy!
I heard that is was going to be extra cold out your way! I hope you are all warm and cozy inside! I bet your parronts are going to have a great Valentine's day!! I hope you and Bo do too!
Enjoy your day!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you guys are having a great day! Lots of cleaning going on this morning. Mom wishes she did not have to work tonight so she could get more done. She'll be off tomorrow night so the chores will continue tomorrow. Mom will come home and take a nap in the morning and then get me my toast!! She thinks she will go to Ross tomorrow to buy some new clothes. Dad gave her a gift card for Christmas and told her that her clothes were mostly junk and she needed some new stuff! I guess you can tell mom doesn't like clothes shopping much!
Dad has been in a motel in Phoenix for 3 days. He is really bored and wants to get back out on the road. He has his laptop with him and can watch TV. There is a Jack in the Box and a Waffle House within walking distance but I think he is tired of them. The satellite system broke and it is taking them forever to get it fixed. His terminal up here is complaining to the shop in Phoenix because they are taking so long. They told dad it should be done today but if it's not done by 6pm he will be in the motel for another night.
Mom and Jennifer went over to the dollar store and bought some cards and candies for the kids at the daycare. They are having a Valentine's party tomorrow. The kids decorated paper lunch sacks and all the candy will go into their bags!
I think they are going to have lots of fun!
It looks like your temps are really going to drop today! You all stay warm and cozy! It sure is wonderful that your mom leaves food for the outside birds! I can not imagine how hard it would be for them to find food when the weather is this cold!
I hope you have lots of fun today!! Leaving a vote and a big hug for you and Bo!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! I heard that BC was all messed up this morning! They usually do that on Sunday mornings but maybe they were busy yesterday!
The school bus was late this morning!!! I know what you are thinking~~Sugar has no little kids in her house so why is she worried about the school bus being late??
Well, the little kids love to stand in the driveway while waiting for the school bus and pump their arms up and down! This causes the many big rigs going down our street to honk their loud honking horns!!!! A few times is cute but when the school bus is 8 minutes late, you get it 22 times! It quit being cute after the 3rd time! Lets hope Mr. Bus Driver will be much more punctual tomorrow! Sugar will be checking up on him!!!!!!
Ian worked his first ever overnight last night. He came right home and went to sleep!HAHAHAHAHAHA Mom has already cleaned the carpet in the living room, mopped the dining room and done 2 loads of laundry! She would love to come home and go to sleep but I am use to my schedule and need to have my toast and my apples and tell mom all about what went on while she was at work! Since we are all sleeping while she is at work, there usually isn't much to tell!
Do the children have to make up the snow days?? They are allowed so many here and then they have to make it up. It rarely happens though! They are talking about cutting out the half day Wednesdays and require that kids are in school for 6 hours a day. I wonder if the parents leave all the teaching to the teachers or do they help out???
I hope your day is just wonderful!! Leaving a vote and a big hug! Please give Bo my love!

I hope you are having a great day!
The weather has been so mild here that the frogs think it's time to get out and do come croaking!! I think there were a gazillion of them last night!! The moat is filled up from all the rain we have had and they were having a croaking party down there! The sparrows were sitting on the balcony this morning too. The trees have not started blooming so it's not really spring but is sure sounded like it last night!hehehehehe
We are going to get some cooking done today and mom has to go get Merlin more food and litter. There will be the usual laundry and mom is going to clean out the fridge too. We still have to figure out where to put the stuff they bought at Costco yesterday.
I hope your day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug for you and Bo!

I hope you are having a great day! Thanks for the Hatchday wishes! I am going to have a great day!
Seahawk Richard Sherman welcomed his baby boy this morning. Not only was the little guy smart enough to be born on my Hatchday but 2-5 is his dad's jersey number! We are very happy for him and the baby's mom Ashley! I wonder if the little guy will like football??
I'm sorry you are having more snow. I know every bird is really looking forward to spring this year. We are just having rain but that is normal for us.
Enjoy your day and I hope it's just spectacular! Please give Bo my love!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a great day! I am supervising laundry today! It's a rough job but some bird has to do it! I really don't know what mom would do without me here to yell and fuss while she is trying to get chores done! I really do think it makes her move faster!hahahahahahaha
Well the Seahawks have shown us how to win a game in 3 minutes and now how to lose one in 26 seconds! They are still my team, I am still a 12th bird and I really am very proud of all their achievements this year! I hope they are proud of themselves too and just move on!
One very nice story is that Chris Pratt~from Seattle and the star of Guardians of the Galaxy~and Chris Evans~from Boston and is Captain America~made a bet. If the Hawks won Chris Evans would visit Children's Hospital in Seattle dressed as Captain America! If the Patriot won Chris Pratt would visit a charity in Boston dressed as Star Lord! Even thought the Patriots won, Chris Evans is coming to Children' Hospital Seattle!! They are both really good guys! Those kid's are going to be so excited!
Punxsutawney Phil says there will be 6 more weeks of winter! I really don't think that was a hard call at all!!! Did you know that in the old days the use to eat the groundhog! Is that gross or what???? ICK! The poor groundhog and really?? Who eats groundhogs? Guess they didn't have McDonalds back then!hahahahahaha
I hope your day is just fabulous!! I hope the storm is not really bad! They are predicting 8 to 12 inches for your area! They are saying that you will get foggy on Satruday! Fog and snow does not sound like a good combination!
I think in some places there is not going to be enough room for anymore snow!!
Leaving a vote and a big hug! Stay warm and please give Bo my love!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you are having a fun day! I'm done with my yelling for now and have gone back to chomping down on my veggie bowl. I got apple last night so mom gave me veggies this morning. It's fun to switch it around sometimes and as long as I get something I like to eat, I don't seem to mind!
The last load of laundry is in the washer and mom had some to put away. We seem to be doing laundry everyday now so it is not such a big deal.
There is a big line at the Starbucks next door! They are selling Seahawk Fraps! Mom treated herself to one after she renewed her license yesterday and it was yummy! It's the Vanilla cream, which mom likes anyway, with blueberries and a green tea whip on top! Seahawk colors! There are Seahawk colors everywhere up here today and I imagine tomorrow will be the same! Mom wore her 12th shirt to the DOL but the drivers license picture is only your face so you can't see the shirt! BUMMER! Almost everyone at the DOL was in Seahawk gear, even the employees! I think it's going to seem a bit dull around here without Blue Fridays!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug! I hope you all stay warm and cozy! I would love to see all those puffy birds outside your window!

  Hello Captain~
I hope you had a wonderful day! It was pretty nice around here. The fog never completely burned off but it wasn't too bad. Mom had to go get her drivers license renewed but it only took her about half an hour. She went to the library after and got me a lovely stack of new books to read.
Mom did her taxes tonight so that's all done. She is never sure if she understands everything. She used Turbo Tax so they sort of do the whole thing for you. It was free last year but she had to pay for it this year. Like I said, she doesn't understand most of it but it's done!
We did more cleaning today since it's mom's day off and she tries to get the major stuff done on Fridays. Tomorrow we will get some meals made ahead of time and decide on what she is going to buy for our Superbowl/Puppy bowl party. Mom will be sleeping when the Superbowl starts but she'll know when they win because of all the noise around here! It was the same way last year. We still celebrate and enjoy the Puppy bowl!
My dad is very messy and so are the kids. Mom just hates all the clutter that is around here. When dad comes home he brings all kinds of things from his truck and ends up leaving half of it behind. It always takes us a day to get it cleaned up after he goes back out on the road. Dad always takes hangers for his clothes and then doesn't bring them back! We keep having to get more hangers!hahahahaha
I hope your evening is just perfect! Leaving a hug and a vote!

  Hello Captain~
I sure hope you had a wonderful day!!! It was boring around here. Just laundry and more carpet cleaning. Mom did have to go out a few times and tonight she and the kids went out to the Mexican restaurant down the street. It was a real treat for mom. There was so much food that she has enough for 2 more meals! They don't go out for dinner very often so it was nice for them. I got a piece of flour tortilla and it was lovely!
1 degree is way too cold! Mom lived on the East Coast when she was a kid but she realizes that viewing snow as a child and viewing it as an adult are very different things! She told me that she, her sister and her brother couldn't wait to get outside and ride their sled! It would take forever to get dressed but they loved it.
Sometimes I think mom gets too crazy with cleaning! She does not like clutter and dad is a pack rat! Always interesting around here!Hehehehehe
Have a wonderful evening! Sleep tight and sweet dreams!

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

I wanted to tell you to stay safe and warm! We certainly hope the storm is not as bad as they think it is going to be!!

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

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

I hope you guys are having a great day! It's been boring around here but that is just fine with me. Mom worked last night and now we have our weekend again! I think she should take 3 days off every week!!
Dad washed his $300 Galaxy phone in the washing machine last night! Guess what? It doesn't work anymore!hahahahaha He is a bigger dork than mom is and that's saying something! He really can't function without his phone. It's a very sad, sad thing!hehehehehehe

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  hi Captain
I think I have talked to you before. My name is Ms BIG BABY.
I am going round BC asking birds to be in the Kissing Booth.
I only have 1 bird on my list now.
Would you or one of your flock like to get kisses and hugs for two weeks?

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

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

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

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

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

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

  Hello Captain~~
I hope you are having a great day! A very Merry Christmas to you, Bo, Sailor Fish and your parronts. I hope they have a wonderful time with the family!
Dad is home so we will all be together for Christmas. The skin brother is still at work but he should be off soon. Mom is roasting a turkey breast tonight and doing prime rib tomorrow. She has to be at work at midnight tomorrow so they will eat early. I'm just waiting on some of that corn bread!! It will be a quiet day but that is just perfect!
Enjoy your day and I hope it is just perfect for you all!

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

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

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

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

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