We were in a cage, all by ourselves, at Exotic Birds By Fran when this man and lady came in and saw us. The lady thought we were cute and the man did, too. Long story short, the next day, they came back and took us both to our forever home in the La Habra flock.

  Hi, Blue & Jewel
Although mom hasn't seen all the Mission Impossible movies (not fond of the star) she loved the TV series and heard the movies are fairly good.

So, so hot there being in the 90s. We were warmer (mid 80s) but not too bad - if stayed inside with the a/c! Hopefully the temps cool at night to get the fresh air for sleeping since have to help save some power.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

What a great time mom and dad had at the fair yesterday - mom took lots of pictures - some video of the pig races too ! Maybe she'll post those later on FB for everybird to see (just to get in the mood for our next Milonga !) They got to see all the animals (Landon's favorite part was feeding them), he and mom rode a camel (!), they saw a brand spanking new baby calf, and all the antiques. Mom loved that the horticulture theme this year was lights, camera, action so all displays were tv and movie related. There was even a minion made out of daisies ! Daddy loved the food ! har har har ! Landon and his mom left around 4:00 so mom and dad ate and then saw the Doobie Brothers - they're old men now ! YIKES ! Still it was a good show and they did all their old 70's songs . . .

Today we're staying home - mom wants to clean the carpets before heading back to school - they're pretty yucky. She thinks it's my fault . . . I say it's daddy's ! !

Any more critter sightings ? Cookie

Ewwwww, a bigger critter? Chewed outta the trap? Sure hope your dad can outwit and figure out how to rid the house of the intruders soon.

Lots of fondly remembered foods are either gone or not made the same. Know want to make things healthy but sometimes it doesn't work out. People know not to eat too much sugar or fried stuff. Hopefully just don't overdo it and can have 'em occasionally.

Another perfect summer day here except for the fact that I'll be alone :( Mom and dad and the niece are taking the g'nephew, Landon, to the county fair. Mom can't wait to see the craft tents - Landon wants to see the animals and go on some rides - and daddy wants to eat junk food ! If they're not too tired, mom and dad will stay for the concert tonight - the Doobie Brothers are there and both parronts remember them from their youth !

I sure hope you guys are enjoying the cooler weather ! We're supposed to go back to summer next week ! I guess we should enjoy it - Farmer's Almanac says it's going to be another tough winter :( UGH !

Hope dad closed up any spots where critters can get in ! love Cookie

Another critter? Different from the previous uncaught ones? Yeah, our entertainment center has a ton of wires going every which way. At least everything is labeled in case have to unplug and redo stuff. Would be a nightmare otherwise.

Good luck with the hunt and hope that the 'mouse magic' flushes it out to be able to get it outta the house.

  Hi B & J
A BIG critter ? How big is BIG ?

Yesterday turned out nice - daddy thanks everybird for their happy birthday wishes ! I even took a bath for the occasion :) The berry shortcake sure was yummy - me and mom make a great team in the kitchen ! And berries make beautiful wall decorations ! har har har !

A few scattered showers today so mom is only going as far as the library later on. It's supposed to clear up later so that we can have a cookout. We're trying to squeeze as many as possible in before mom goes back to school and the days get cooler and shorter . . .

Have a wonderful toosday ! love you ! Cookie

Sounds like the parronts got you and the flock on both sides! Having the sucking maching going and birdhouses cleaned. Just means the flock will have to start over with the decorating.

Getting hot again here too. Temps back in the 80s but only just. We admit it is reasonable for the end of summer.

Yesterday was perfect ! After a bit of marketing, mom stayed home to read and hang out with me - the only other thing she did was one load of laundry :)

Today is daddy's birthday so me and mom are going to make a berry shortcake - mom picked up not only strawberries yesterday, but blackberries, raspberries and blueberries too ! I can't wait to help with that ! ! ! har har har :) Of course I love opening presents too - and I know daddy will need my help with the wrapping paper !

You have a fun day too :) love Cookie

  Hi, Blue & Jewel
Our mom has never made gumbo but imagine there's a lot of prep work and then have to let it simmer for a long time to truly meld the flavors. Probably even better the next day.

Glad your dad got that card back. Mom left hers at a pizza place once but only 'cause they didn't hand it back to her! Think our dad left his at a home improvement store and they had set it aside for him when he called. Mom has seen many cards left at work and so many never return or call to see if it is there. After a specfied amount of time the card is cut up and tossed.

Yet another lovely day coming up ! In fact the whole of the week with the exception of some scattered thunderboomers on Tuesday is predicted to be low 80's, low humidity and oodles of sunshine :) YIPPEEEEE !

Me and mom will be busy today getting ready for daddy's birthday tomorrow . . . I can't decide whether he prefer I make one of his shirts lacey, or I make some lovely shredded paper piles . . . or maybe both !

Have a great day ! love Cookie

  Hi, Blue & Jewel
Maybe your dad needs to get some advice from eggsperts in rodent removal when one doesn't wanna use poison or chemicals, etc. Maybe a hidden camera would help pinpoint where eggactly the critters continue to find their way in. Hopefully no rubber room for your dad.

Temps staying down here with a nice breeze. Sounds like your temps are still warm but better than being 90s+ (or triple digits).

  hey what a great idea
Reality show - titled CRITTERS VS UNCLE JOHN ! ! ! har har har - waiting for the next installment :)

The air feels so good here ! The humidity has dropped and so has the temps - in fact we haven't had to turn on the a/c in a couple days :) Mom went to school yesterday and put the finishing touches on her decorating. Now she's done except for things with names, and doesn't have to return till Sept. 2 for her meetings !

Then, I ended up playing with mom's grand-nephew yesterday - the lady who usually watches him while mom's niece works (retail) fell and hurt her knee. Since it was his mom's last day (she starts a new job on Sept. 8 in an insurance office - better, more regular hours), she couldn't call out. After dinner last night she and daddy and Landon went to the park to play on the playground ! Do you know how many years it's been since mom climbed monkey bars and slid down slides ? I would have loved to see that ! har har har !

Today of course is visit the g'parronts day - but mom promised she'd be home in plenty of time to play and bring me to Milonga :) See you ! love Cookie

More critter hunting? Yikes! Still getting inside and foiling all your dad's efforts? Land mines...? Yuck! Maybe should spike the PB with some hot pepper and see how they like it.

Always enjoyable to hear live music and if free all the better. They have similar here. Usually on Thu evening at the park there's a free concert in summer with various performers and various music styles.

Remaining in the 70s for us, whew!

  ha ha ha ! those sound like smart critters !
Maybe pops should set up secret surveillance cameras !

Hooray for Friday ! It means mom finishes up in her room today - she has only her eggs to put in the nest outside her door (4H is "egg"ceptional). Everything else like her job board baseballs (Pitch In), the cupcakes for her birthday board and the fall leaves for the kids to decorate, daddy is working on cutting over the next week . . . that means she doesn't have to go back now till Sept. 2 for her faculty meetings . . .

Good thing too - next week is a busy one at our house ! Hope you have a great day today - love Cookie

  Hi, Blue & Jewel
Sounds like a battle of wits for your dad and those pesky rodents. We know he won't give up and close off any and all points of entry.

Temps dropped more yesterday so was upper 70s. So much nicer than a few days ago. Hopefully it stays this way or goes lower.

Isn't difficult to go to the store for a few things and come home with more than one bag. Our mom always checks for things on sale and stocks up if knows she needs it or has room.

  Hi B & J
Just one more steamy day . . . by tonight the storms are supposed to arrive and hopefully cool things down !

Mom just about finished her room ! She definitely be done by tomorrow. Today she'll do the final two bulletin boards (she has 5 in her room - 2 large and 3 small) and the hallway, then tomorrow just organizing - that will leave her free till she goes on the 2nd and 3rd for meetings.

I had just a teeny tiny bath yesterday - mom took it away since all I was doing was filling up my measuring cup with water and trying to toss it out onto the floor ! har har har ! Doesn't she realize messes are fun ?

Have a great Thursday ! Love you - Cookie

Hmmmm, sounds like something other than peanut butter needs to be used? Not sure what dad used when there were eggcessive roof rats in the back yard a few years back. None got in the house though.

Okay, if humid those 80s temps might as well be 90s with the added yuckiness of feeling sticky and icky. So glad not humid here and temps while still warm were tolerable.

Mom visited skinsis and the grand after work yesterday. Ended up taking 'em to the store before returning so skinsis could do some chores. The grand figured out how to climb up onto the couch.

Happy humpday ! Officially our heat wave ends today since it's only going up to 88 - but since the humidity is still very high, I don't know if we'll feel much difference :( I'm tired of this ! I want to go out ! ! !

Mom felt pretty good about the number of shelves she got settled yesterday. She's hoping to finish that today, but isn't sure. She has an appointment to have her feathers colored and cut. I don't know why she doesn't like grey . . . it sure looks great on me !

Have a happy day and stay cool :) love Cookie

Was still hot here but we dropped a bit more than you area. Hopefully we go back into the 80s today. Can't blame your mom for wanting to be in the a/c and know she's doing good work while keeping cool.

Still a mouse issue there? Yikes! We don't have an attic but can imagine how hot/stuffy it would be. Never heard of anyone frying a egg in it like they jokingly do on sidewalks.

We've got another scorcher on our agenda today ! Still mom will go do some work in her classroom this morning - yesterday she went in, and tired of the room arrangement, pushed around furniture, tried it out from different angles making sure everyone had good visibility, pushed it around again, tried different seating, and then just for good measure, she tried a third arrangement. Well, guess what ? After almost three hours ? She put it right back to its original setup ! ! What a silly mom ! I hope she learned that she shouldn't try to fix what's not broken ! Besides, it'll all still be fresh to the new 4th graders !

Then she stopped at the library on her way home and we spent the rest of the day reading and playing - only it was too hot to go out :(

Hope it's cooled off there for you guys ! If not maybe dad can pack you all up and bring you to the police station with mom ! har har har ! love Cookie

Got to be around 100 yesterday. Didn't feel too bad since it wasn't humid. Hopefully will go down but until it goes down 20 degrees or more will still feel hot.

Not sure what it is with the hooman males. Our dad has done similar (yard work in the heat but staying in the shade) but at least he now does less at a time. At least the cans are full so your dad won't be working outside.

Another scorcher today ! Yesterday was beastly - the only thing mom did was the last load of vacation laundry - and that made her sweaty and icky ! Right after lunch she turned on the a/c and daddy made tacos for dinner - too hot to cook out !

Today she's going to try to do a little work in her classroom - but be home to me by noon . . . I'll nap a little so I'm ready to play when she gets back for lunch :)

Stay cool my dear friends ! love Cookie

Got into the low 90s for us yesterday though it did take until afternoon to feel it. The parronts got thru the errand before it got hot and today is supposed to get even higher, yikes! Mom will be braced for an oven when she leaves work.

Good your mom could do some work out of the heat. Our mom dislikes comedy just due to all the fowl language. If every other word is bleepable then how can one follow a story?

Having a heat wave . . . a tropical heat wave" ! 90+ all week long in his corner of NY - YIKES ! Then he giggles about mom thinking about doing any housework today - HA, she'll melt ! Of course she does still have one load of vacation laundry to do - yesterday it was 3:30 by the time the parronts got home from checking on g'pa and she just didn't feel like doing anything other than playing with me :)

Thank goodness that the classrooms are all air-conditioned now cause mom wants to get in and start pushing furniture around one day this week - setting up the classroom is a 3-4 day job ! First furniture, then shelves, then bulletin boards and then pulling and organizing for week one. Luckily in NY they don't start till the day after Labor Day . . .

Have a peaceful Sunday dear hearts and stay cool :) love Cookie

Hmmmm, whenever the parronts BBQ and mom wants baked potatoes will just stick 'em in the grill. Have to start it earlier of course since it takes longer. Mom will wrap it in foil. Our mom hasn't tried it but her microwave has a baked potato setting. Hopefully your mom enjoyed the baked potato!

Not overly hot here yesterday. We'll see how high it gets today. If we're lucky won't see the triple digits. We'll leave those temps to places inland of us, well, guess your area will probably reach that awful temp as well.

I'm back ! I'm home ! ! We had a terrific vacation (despite the fact that I get a little carsick sometimes) - the weather was wonderful so I got to spend all my days on my porch wishing you were there with me ! It rained only Tuesday and that was overnight - by late Wednesday morning the sun was shining again and I was able to keep track of all the swimmers, boaters, waterskiiers, tubers, kayakers, and ducks ! Mom says pictures to be uploaded after we're done telling everyone how much we missed them !

Daddy went to get pizza cause mom doesn't want to cook tonight - she did unpack and toss the first load of vacation laundry in the machine - you guys were far more important !

Is it hot enough for you there ? YIKES ! stay cool my friends :) love Cookie

PS. that was vote 4500 :) I love round numbers :)
