12-14-13-It is with heavy heart to report Punkin's friend, our frother, Ike was found on the bottom of the cage today. Although he was with son in law we kept track of him and yesterday got the sad news. He was greatly loved by SIL and skin sis as well as us. We will miss him very much.

9~25~13~Thank you for making me BOTD
Ipo (EE poe),is a fancy GCC. Her person had been keeping an eye on him at PetCo and Ipo had been there nearly a year. When he purchased Ipo he thought he would have time to spend with her, but found he was traveling very much and wanted Ipo in a good home. So Ipo was turned over to be adopted. I brought the lovely bird home fully intending on adopting her out. Sidney adopted her and so with us she will stay.

  Hello Ipo~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's very spring like here and I have been enjoying the sunshine!
We did chores yesterday since mom was off. Mostly going through old mail and straightening up the linen closet. Mom got some shelf liner at the dollar store and lined all the shelves in there. It looks very nice and we even found more stuff to donate to the Goodwill!!
We really should have gotten on BC earlier than we did but we had no idea they were going to take the site down last night. It would be really nice if they gave us a "heads up" but I suppose it is not important to them. All the sites were down so they must have been doing maintenance on the server.
It's back to work for mom tonight so we are getting the rest of the laundry done. My play cage was all cleaned when I came out this morning and I have new toys also. I guess I am going to be a busy bird today!!
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's just spectacular!

  Hello Ipo~
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 Ipo~
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!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Ipo~
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.
I hope you have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! We did some chores and then mom had to run over to the market to pick up a few things. Dad is making home made pizza tonight. It's Ian's birthday and they both love that pizza. I'll be getting a nice piece of crust!
Nothing else interesting going on here. It's been a mostly quite day and that is just fine!

  Hello Ipo~
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 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.
Have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

  Hello Ipo~
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!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Kind of a quiet day around here. We have plans to get some chores done since mom is off.
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.
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's just perfect!

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!!

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 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 Ipo~
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!

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!

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

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

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

I hope you are having a fantastic day! Mine has been pretty good. I have been on puppy duty most of the day. It sure is a hard job. Everything is taking so much longer since mom has to stop every few seconds to chase after the puppy! It takes a long time just to get a note done these days!
It's been a clear and pretty day but it was cold. We just hung out at home today and did some cleaning. There is a lot more to do since McKenzie is a bird puppy! She loves chewing paper and cardboard! Yep! Part bird!
It's our weekend but I have no idea what is planned. I hope we get to take some time and watch a movie. There's lots of new things at the Redbox.
You enjoy the rest of your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Ipo
How are you sweetie? It's great to be back on BC, I've missed all my friends! I did support Kaji's BOTM campaign & give congrats to BOTD winners, but mom has been promising me for weeks that we would again blog ALL my friends! I have REALLY missed you all!

Mom's STEELERS won the playoff game last night but mom is still fuming over the game! These two teams are arch rivals & we expected a physical game, but one player on the opposing team took it way to far! He made a dirty, illegal hit on our star receiver and almost took his head off! Fans kept throwing debris onto the field at our players! Our QB had to be escorted off the field by the dozen security guards! Mom prays that Antonio Brown is OK & is able to play next week in the AFC Championship game!
Have a great day sweetie!
Love & a vote.

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

  Hello Ipo~
I hope you had a fun day!! Mine wasn't bad. Mom took a bunch of stuff over to the Goodwill and then took McKenzie to Petco. Ian gave us a gift card for Christmas so she got to go spend it! Merlin got a lovely new food bowl since McKenzie broke his last one. McKenzie picked out some new toys. Mom tried to get her a boo boo dog which is a long stuffed dog, but she didn't want that. She picked out a reindeer that squeaks and a bear that has a rope body. They were clearance from Christmas. It's what she wanted and she has been carrying the reindeer around since she got home! She got some cookies from the cookie bar and more Science Diet puppy food. I got nothing!!!! Mom has another card to use for me but I don't really need anything right now. There was a beautiful Golden Cap Conure there. He was $650 and mom couldn't afford that! I don't think we need anymore animals around here! Mom said he was a really gorgeous bird.
McKenzie has to go to the vet on Friday. She has to get the 2nd booster shots. They only give them a tiny bit at a time. Since we don't know if she ever had shots before she came to live with us, they have to give the shot over 3 months. I wonder what she is going to think of our vet! I hope she gets to see Dr. Jennifer, my vet, cause she is awesome!
I hope you have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  Hi Ipo & Flock
T'was the night before Christmas, when all through the tree,
the birdies and parrots were all filled with glee,
The clutches were snuggled in their down feathered nests,
while vision of flight, sent them all soaring west.

Fresh millet sprays had been hung with great care,
with hopes that "Old Scarlet" (Parrot St. Nick) soon would be there.
The Conures and Amazons had all settled down,
but those crazy cockatoos were still hopping around.

When high in the tree tops, a ruckus arose,
I thought I should check, just to see what goes.
Peeking through branches, leaves lit by the moon,
I thought I was dreaming it looked just like noon!

When what to my wondering eyes should there be,
but a flock of eight Grey's with Red Tails shining landing in the next tree.
Gliding behind, holding reins in his beak,
I spied the red bird, with a blush on his cheek.

He whistled and squawked, calling each one by name,
buoyed by a breeze, as closer they came.
Now Talon, now Josey, now Dayo and Ana Grey,
on Corky, on Misty, on Gilda and Gracie.

To the top of the palms, to the top of trees tall,
now fly away, fly away, fly away all!
I watched as they circled the green jungle maze,
and thought for a second I'd lost sight, I was in such a daze!

But, soon they appeared, drawing a basket behind,
which was filled with new toys of the bright, shiny kind.
Back to my branch I climbed mighty quick,
I'd heard of Old Scarlet, surely this was no trick!

He carefully perched by an old snoring grey,
while I fretted and wondered if he'd get scared away.
He wasn't even distracted when the parakeet sneezed.
He hung the new whirlygigs, sighed and looked pleased.

Standing proud and quite stately, he filled me with trust;
but I felt ashamed, his feathers were covered with cockatoo dust.
He paused, just a moment, fluffed and preened in a stoop,
turned around slowly, saying "At least it's not poop."

Then he laughed out loud--like a real human being.
I blinked my eyes twice, at what I was seeing.
He picked up a peanut and tossed it my way.
"Here's a small Christmas treat. Don't get spoiled, okay?"

He strutted back to the basket, put a strap round each wing,
chirped at his flock, who started to sing.
Their tones were so perfect, they were magically dear.
I was sure it was Memorex or a choir quite near.

The melody lingered, for a moment or two,
but I caught one last glimpse, before they flew.
His eyes were so merry, twinkling with impish delight.
His charming ways had brightened this long Christmas night.

As upward they soared, toward the golden round moon,
I heard every word, he joyfully crooned.
"Merry Christmas to all, peace, joy and cheer.
Be good little birdies. I'll see you next year!"
love Cori,Boo Boo & the BAD Budgies

  Hello Ipo~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I'm sorry I didn't get around much yesterday. It was just a busy day with puppy duty. It is slowly getting calmer around here but I have to tell you that Merlin is just such a drama king! I think he is a bit jealous of the puppy! I just sit in my play cage and watch the two of them! As long as McKenzie does not come near my cage, we will get along just fine. I still have a cardboard wall around the bottom of my cage to keep me from biting her. We are never alone, not even for a second. If mom has to go to another room she takes McKenzie with her.
Only 2 more work nights for mom and then it's 2 days off! She wishes she could say the Christmas rush will be over then but they are having a huge sale on the 26th and then all the storage stuff happens. Once the Christmas stuff is gone, they put storage boxes and baskets up in Seasonal. The Christmas stuff will go quickly since they are marking it 75% off the day after Christmas.
I posted some pictures of McKenzie, Merlin and I in my gallery. I hope you enjoy them!
Enjoy your day too!

  Hello Ipo~
I hope you are enjoying the day! I am toasty warm in my play cage having a snack and chatting with mom!
McKenzie did well in the crate last night. It's all wire so she can see out. Mom got her bed in there and gave her the parrot toy. She covered the back with a blanket so that the nightlight wouldn't shine on her. She fussed for a bit but then went to sleep.
Wish potty training was going as well but it hasn't even been one day yet. We did have to get the carpet cleaner out last night.
McKenzie pulled Merlin's bowl off the table and broke it. Mom will replace it with something in stainless steel. She sure did figure out what the kitchen was for pretty quickly! I'd say she is a smart dog.
Merlin does not like her very much! He already tried to whack her but mom stopped him. Mom assures me that they will get use to each other eventually.
I think she is very cute but if she comes near the cage, I will bite her. I do have to defend my cage you know! There is a big piece of cardboard wrapped around the bottom of my cage so that I can not get to her if she comes to visit!
Still cold here and is suppose to rain until Christmas!! Christmas is only 6 days away now! Seems like the time just flew by.
Have an awesome day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

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

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

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

  Heya, Ipo!
OH! You are Miss Punkin's fister! Gosh, I miss that little gal so much! I hope you were able to see the story on the other birdies pages--let me know if you want me to leave the first four.

Oh, those annoying popups at the bottom of the page have to go! Mom thought the security program she had installed had gone south, so she ended up calling mcafee and they told her to call time warner, then time warner told her to call mcafee. ARRGGGHHH! An afternoon wasted. She just uninstalled the program and reinstalled it again. Now she is running scans to make sure nothing go in her puter. Nope. This is a BC/i5 thing (they are runing a javascript on the page) so there is no easy way to block them. Popups and this thing are a pain in the tailfeathers, and Mom says that the one with the Juicy Couture is enough to gag her. Grrr.

Thanks so much for stopping by to drop off that vote for me, and hope you are being entertained by the story! Without further ado, part 5:


He looked in Soft-Scoop’s ear, he made him blow his nose,
He tried to take his temperature but his thermometer just froze.
He listened to his chest, and he made him flap his wings.
He measured height, he measured weight and lots of other things.

And in the end he rubbed his chin and then he went all quiet.
And then at last he said “I think the problem is your diet.”
“I have some chocolate in my bag and you can have a bite.
I’m hoping that its creaminess will help your fire to light.”

So Soft-Scoop ate the chocolate bar and tried to look more scary.
“Now concentrate,” said Oven-Bake. “And don’t think about dairy.”
So Soft-Scoop opened up his mouth and without further delay
He huffed and puffed and breathed out a chocolate fudge sundae!

“Amazing!” exclaimed Doctor Singe. “How utterly bizarre!
Next try a banana. Fruit is healthier by far.”


Does the banana help? They are good for pretty much everyone, but a dragon? Guess you have to wait to find out!

Wing hugs from me to you!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hello Ipo~
I hope you are having a great day. Bit of a break in the rain right now! The gardeners are here but lets get real! Everything is too soggy to mow so they are using the blower thingy to clean up which is silly since the maintenance guy sweep the whole place every morning. I think they should just walk next door to Starbucks and relax and have some coffee. Being a gardener is a very hard job!
The lights are on the tree and a couple of my Hello Kitty ornament are at the top. Merlin went over to check out the lights but then left to get some treats. Food works every time with that cat!
I'm sitting here on moms shoulder keeping an eye on that tree. She took me over to it so I could see my Hello Kitty ornaments but I didn't want to get too close. A bird can never be too careful you know.
I don't understand about the heat. It is connected to other apartments? That would be yucky! You guys have to keep warm! Mom freaks out if it gets below 60 here!
All the snow here is in the mountains and they are just thrilled. One of the resorts opened this morning! Last year was just about a wash since we got very little snow!
I hope you have a fantastic day! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

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

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

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Still stormy here. Lots and lots of wind! Mom had to play dodge the tree branches on the way to work last night!
Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night so I am very happy! I don't know if we have anything planned but I'm sure I can come up with something!
I think mom is going to put the tree up finally. It is going to be very interesting to see how Merlin reacts to it. He's never been around a Christmas tree yet. I think there is going to be a lot of cleaning up to do!!
I hope the day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!
