Awhile after losing my beloved Bailey, my husband found a bird on the internet. He asked if I liked it. I said yes, but I'm not ready. He said you will never be ready so let's go get the bird. We drove 945 round trip miles in the middle of October in the rain to Ohio. We found "him" (they thought it was a boy) in a small cage. The wings were severely cut, nails in bad shape, and tail shredded and broken and very thin. They got the bird at 10 weeks and had "him" a year. "He" never had a name, and they didn't handle the bird much. But they did teach him to step up and say "What are you doing"! They said, we are asking a good price because we don't want the bird. Well, the bird came home with us, an eight hour drive. After our vet saw the bird, it's a girl and she has a respiratory infection. She wasn't properly cared for so, she will always be small for a YCM. Named after a song we heard on the way home - David Bowie's China Girl, please welcome ...our little CHYNA girl.

Hi! My name is Chyna ~ KY Derby week!

I am a Yellow-Collared Macaw from North Port, FL.

Baby Girl, Chyna Cate

5 years old   F

Yellow-Collared Macaw

melon, apples, popcorn, peas, scrambled eggs.

On Mom's chair ...

Don't make fast moves around me. I don't like loud noises either!

I now have a real family and a big cage AND lots of toys and good food ... and a NAME! I've never had cuddles before and I like it!

Takes her leg and stretches it back and over her wing and rests her foot on her head. Plays with her toys with her feet while on her back.
I love to toss my toys on the floor and have Mom pick them up over and over.
I love exploring around the house on my own.

Be happy and healthy.

  Hi Chyna
How awesome is that to have a restaurant in FLA that serves Derby Faire!It sounds like Aunt Jane is in for a greyt day on Derby day getting to wear her derby hat and going out for lunch before she gets to watch all the eggcitement of the races!
Oh and that's another favorite smashed potatoes for sure!
I think that maybe I should send our whole week of rain here to you!
This morning was a dark drizzly day with the highs for the day of 55 the lows of 45 and right now its 49.After Mom got dad off to work she got our bean mix, eggs and angel hair pasta ready and Dixie's antibiotics ready.Then she got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and we got our bean mix.Then she washed the kitchen and bathroom floor and scrubbed out our water bottles.It got really dark here and then it really started pouring down heavy.We are supposed to get this kind of weather for the rest of the week.What happened to our May sunshine and warm temperatures?We can't wait to get outside and go for stroller rides or sit in the sunshine on the deck getting a nice soaking shower to dry off in the sunshine and Mom wants to be able to put her wash outside and not have to keep using the dryer!UggggH!Other than Mom working on chores all day today its going to be another wonderful boring day here for us!Nothing of interest going on at all!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for pretty Chyna!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hi Chyna
Those new pterosaurs just got installed. It looks like they're flying in a flock. Mom picked the purple shirt.
Mom talked to about 50 people yesterday about the pterosaurs hanging from the overlook. She spelled it wrong yesterday, for anyone looking them up: It's cycnoramphus, with a y not an i. They have weird mouths, tiny teeth only in the front. There were lots of people using the elevator and the stairs on the overlook, just not that many stopping to look at what mom had to show. She even had a cast of a pterodactyl for folks to touch.
After the museum, mom went to Barnes and Noble to use the coupons she had. As usual, it didn't take her long to find things to read.
Today at the center mom had the avian nursery to do. There are some nestlings there who had to eat every 30 minutes, and she had the timer for them, too. The nestlings were a little fuzzy finch, a Carolina wren, and a baby robin. There were also several mallards in there, 10, at least, in 2 cages with decoy moms and mirrors. There was a baby goose with a decoy mom in its cage, too. There were the usual mourning doves and pigeons, as well as an eastern screech owl, a cardinal, and a pileated woodpecker. Mom also set up a cage for a grey catbird, but didn't see it, as it was still in the treatment room.
She was a few minutes late getting out today; that was a lot of birds, with the baby feedings thrown in.
Now, mom is home with us, hoping to finish a book today, and maybe get some laundry going. Tomorrow I have a follow up appointment with my vet, and she is seeing me before rush hour starts, YAY! She's going to see more than 2 feathers growing in, too. I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Flitzer, readying for Dad's trip
Happy Monday. Dad is packing and running around the house setting up "bird-care"stations.
He's nervous about leaving me w Aunt Kathy - they were both miserable to each other last time.
Dad will be gone 5 days, and is praying we all survive the duration.
--
Dad is visiting his Mom in Kentucky - and he'll be flying. He hates travel, hates flying, and hates being away from home.

Hoping all goes well.

  Hi, Chyna
Maybe should give out some spray bottles for that shower, heehee.

Okay, figured the derby was this Sat since so much talk about it on the news lately. Any favorites we should look for? The parronts don't really follow horse racing and don't think seen the KY Oaks race but thanks to you do know about it now. Mom gets home from work close to 3PM on Sat so hopefully the race hasn't run yet and can catch it.

Awesome to make more acquaintance with the cardinal. None here and they are such striking looking birds. If ever get a pic please share.

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

  Happy Derby Week Ms Chyna-from Jenny Lynn
...you sound like such a fun part, we are glad we are your friends! Once again dad has a doctor appointment at our VA medical clinic, that just cuts the heart out of our day! He will be waiting around a lot to be called into the various specialty rooms, certainly not much fun, but a necessary evil, none the less! We are having another gloomy overcast day with more rain coming, when will it ever end! Our day will be filled with boring stuff, but aunt Denise always entertains us, she is so sweet! Have a great Monday dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Monday love from Jenny, Ms LaLo, Angel Christy, & our crippled daddy

  you want rain ?
I'll package some up and get it in the mail ! Hopefully, despite the cold rain here, life will return to normal now that mom's drama club is done till November . . . Yesterday I squawked for an early night-night since it was so dark and dismal - that was OK though, since I think mom was ready too ! She and dad did pick up my peas and string beans earlier, and some more calculator paper for my art projects, so I'll be ready for today.

Is mom still having her Derby party at your house ? I know up in MI she always did . . .

Have a great Monday pretty girl ! love Cookie

Well we don't think your mom is nuts for talking to the wild animals it's something my mom would do. I bet that's why bunny was watching and following your mom like that.
Another gloomy cool day but it was a full day with mom being at home so that's always a plus. Have a good night my friend.

  Heya, Miss Chyna!
Yeah, the building owner is also the builder for the apt. So we figure maybe he will have a spare cabinet for us. And he knows how the dishwasher leaked. We had to have a plumber come in to fix it a couple years ago. Not sure what happened, as no water damage happened under the sink. Could have been there a long time, but we never saw it until Friday night. Mom goes under the sink all the time, so whatever happened got super out of control fast.

We had another dismal, grey day here today. We did get to 50, but it only felt like the low 40's due to the wind. Damp. Rain on and off. Guess you get the general gist of things--another blah day outside.

However, Mom and I want to wish you all a very happy Lei Day! We love Hawaii, which most of you know, so we always look forward to Lei Day as it means May is here, and we love May! Derby, Mom's Day, Mom's BD, my adoption day...yeah, May is our month.

Not much else going on here. Mom is off to the dentist tomorrow morning. Hopefully, the insurance will cover the 50% like it should.

Wing hugs coming your way! Can't wait for the Derby!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Chyna
Good you mentioned the pineapple cause mom forgot to change the water today!
Mom is still waiting on the insurance card and another CC to come.The old cards have been cancelled out and the new ones have different numbers and the chip on them.
I knew mom didn’t get those feathers cut short enough! Yep she went today and flew off. After she got us all breakfast (her, dad and me) and my bean mix made and a bowl of fruit made in the frig for dad to give me she went to pick up the one grand and then to skin sis and picked her and that grand up and they went shopping. The one grand is going to the 8th grade farewell event but the other grand doesn’t want to go. Really neither wants to get all dressed up to go but some friends are talking the grand into going so she needed a dress for the occasion. The grands pitching coach is getting married in October so imagine the grand will wear it then too. Mom got dad a couple pair of jeans there since mom can usually find his size there in the brand he likes. I was glad that dad was home with me and yep I got that bowl of fruit in the afternoon. I was glad when I heard mom pull in the garage though!! “A memory last forever never does it die. True friends stay together and never say goodbye.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Oh how sad that Aunt Jane won't be having a Derby party like she always did before!I'll bet she really misses all the fun and food and company that came to the Derby parties!Don't you just love eggs?I just love eggs any way I can get them!Everyone just loves that spoiled little brat!Candida knows how to put on the cute so everyone gravitates towards her!
This morning was a dull,dismal,dark,dreary day here.The highs for the day will be 53 the lows of 41 and its 47 right now and cold and raining.Mom got us all up this morning and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us our bean mix with eggs!We all just love eggs!Then she got dad his breakfast of raisin toast and coffee and then made dad his peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the work week and then the two skin sibs called her and drove her crazy.Mom managed to get a wash in the washer and was going to hang the sheets out on the line when she forgot to get the laundry out of the washer and dad told her it has already started to rain.Mom is so tired of going back and forth with both skin sibs about the apartment next door to skin sis.Skin bro went up to meet with the landlord and at the last minute backed out of it.He later found two places that included everything and he's got an appointment for one tomorrow at 5:30pm and the other one you have to go in person to look at.They don't take phone calls,Mom is hoping that he'll take one of them at least and get this thing over with once and for all.Mom thought that she would have a nice quiet day here but skin sis still is coming over to do her laundry and bring our frother and fister with her.Mom is hoping that she'll take more of her stuff back with her.She was hoping that skin bro was going to come and take all his box springs and mattresses out this weekend but now Mom's gotta wait longer for that to happen.It looks like Mom will have to wait til tomorrow to have a nice quiet day.Mom hasn't gotten much done today at all except be on the phone with both skin sibs.Skin sis came over and did her laundry and Mom clipped Peepers flight feathers.Mom made lunch for everyone,skin sis and Mom had broccoli,onions,diced tomatoes and parmesan cheese with angel hair noodles.Then Mom made lime jello for dessert.Dad had soup and crackers.Skin sis finished her laundry while Mom cleaned up the kitchen.Mom made a tuna noodle casserole,but everyone had a very late lunch and no one is interested in eating dinner so Mom will have it for tomorrow night's dinner.Skin sis finally went home after 6:00pm and Mom ran upstairs and took a shower and made up the bed with dad.Because of the rain here all her wash had to go in the dryer.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for pretty Chyna Girl!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hi Chyna
Peanuts and Cashews are also high in fats, so Mom only lets me have a cashew every other day and a peanut on the alternate days. The almonds I can have as many as I want.

Well, Mom abandoned me right after breakfast to go put gas in Gloria before the cheap station got too busy. And then she went grocery shopping with Dad, but I forgive her for that since she brings home my sugar snap peas, nanners and grapes. However she also brought home a salad for lunch, and although she expected me to enjoy sharing it since it had corn and beans (Southwestern style chicken salad), I was not really impressed. Amazingly I did eat a tiny piece of lettuce, but the second one I picked up ended up on Mom's shoulder.

And although it is warm enough for a sunbath today, Dad suggested Mom wait one more day before sitting out in the sun to make sure the antibiotic is out of her system completely. A sunburn right now would not be fun, eggspecially since she is pretty sure she will be good to go for the gym tomorrow (no zumba yet, though). I wouldn't cooperate about getting into my carrier anyway, so Mom took that as a sign that a sunbath was not a good idea today.

BooBoo had a greyt idea: since we do not have a candidate for BOTM this month, why don't we all vote for Laka again so she can get her BOTM plaque from BC. In case you didn't know, apparently BC has started doing that again, and Grey Bird actually received his plaque. Laka and Kacey & Mikey should deserve the same recognition.

  Hey Chyna,
Mom is still coughing but her throat isn't as sore like before.

She's still on the horse pills of antibiotics twice a day. Now her organs are hurting from all that coughing. :(. She has ta hold her tummy when coughing as she might break a gut. So to speak.

Today mom is doing more resting and sleeping as she has ta go back to work in Monday.

Hope you have a nice sunny day!

Here's a vote for you.

It's Alex.
Dad finally worked on the front lawn and at least part of it looks better. He's going to try to get more done today. Not sure how much because their friends from Colorado will be here today. Not sure how much we'll be on the BC this next week. It depends on how busy mom and dad are with their friends.
Mom made homemade gumbo last night. Sure did smell good but dad said we couldn't have any because it was too spicy for us. Hey, we like spicy!
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 76 and a low of 53. Yes, dad says he'll take one of the wild pigs; roasted with garlic.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

  Hi Chyna
Thanks again for the package. Mom likes the posters; did you see how big FL used to be on that one map? Lots more land! She also liked the wildlife article. They didn't see that one, did they?
Mom went with her niece to see the opera last night. The scenery was really cute, it looked very 2 dimensional, and was mostly drawn onto a white background, so looked very childlike and unsophisticated. The music was typical Stravinsky, mom liked it a lot. In fact, she enjoyed the music more than the singing, because the music was playful in spots. The cast was very well matched vocally, and the chorus did a bang up job! For an opera written in 1951, it was pretty good. Mom doesn't usually like contemporary works like that. They had dinner at Nicky's Thai Kitchen before the performance, too.
Today mom has to do a 3 hour spotlight at the new pterosaurs in Dinosaur hall. They are cicnorhamphus, and they are hanging above the hall. Mom thinks she'll be on the second floor balcony, so people can see them better. They are pretty cool pterosaurs, have beaks that indicate they were filter feeders, something like flamingos.
I think after the museum, mom will head to Barnes and Noble, then come home. I hope you are having a good day there. It's gloomy here, and raining off and on. Get lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

  Hi, Chyna
How far away did skinsis move? Know she didn't follow parronts to FL. Hopefully more details can get finalized by shower time. Why do they call that a shower if no water is involved? Never did make sense to us fids.

At mom's old work location it took at least three separate visits by the a/c workers to finally get it working where it felt cooler inside than out on hot days. Of course those inside still felt too warm but if went outside then could feel the difference.

When is the Kentucky Derby? Dad keeps thinking it is this Sat but seems too soon but know it always on a Sat!

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

  hi pretty Chyna
Rain here in NY today . . . but that's OK, cause there's not a lot going on. Mom is recovering from last night. The show went really well - only one little actor missed a line, and it wasn't an important one. The cast party was LOUD. She was even able to eat a slice of pizza ! ! Thank goodness in junior high there's only one performance unlike high schools which do two full weekends. Don't think she could do that ! Me either - I do love my daddy, but he's not a very good tucker inner and mom had to fix my blankee when she got home about half past midnight.

She will go out later to get me my fresh veggies - yesterday she got hers and daddy's foods. I'll try to be a good boy and let her rest . . . have a great day dear friend ;) love Cookie

Hello dear friends-

Dad's making preparations to leave on his short vacation. Of course it will not seem short for either of us.
-
Aunt Kathy, the Bird-Sitter, will be lookin in on me, and my dear Uncle Geno promises to visit as well, so they will help pass the time....but nothing's the same without Dad. It's gonna be tough.
I have Dad trained for when it's time for fruit, when it's time for seeds. . .
Dad keeps telling me to be nice - last time I was so sad and angry and everything else that I was miserable to the bird-sitter . . . .
= = =
Saturday was a nice day. Dad and Uncle Geno took a short drive into the country.
Today is rainy and Dad will be at the movies in the afternoon.

  Heya, Miss Chyna!
Mom showed her manager the cabinet. He thought that the seals might have dried on the dishwasher. It is 26 years old, and Mom doesn't use it that much. Guess it leaked under the cabinet. YUCKO! Anyway, the owner will be here to see what has to be done. Mom says that a new cabinet would be nice, along with a new dishwasher. Or another cabinet. Guess that would not work whenever she moves, though.

Rainy day here. And super damp and icky. And gusty winds, too. 43 now, but feels like 38. Mom says she feels like it is November again. I got to snuggle up with Mom, so I am good. At least we have some heat here. Mom says she is happy about that. Just feels icky! She put on the little oil heater for me so I stay comfy.

Wing hugs coming your way!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi sweetie, ♥
today the parronts worked in the yard, dad helped dig a couple of holes for some plants. Mom got her begonias all planted in their containers and out in the back yard. She wanted a little more color along the back fence since it is so shaded.

Awwww, how sweet of Bunni to visit with your mom but you are right, you are the supervisor!

Love, Scoober XOXOXO

  Hi Chyna!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight is the last night! I am so excited! Mom was finally able to pick up all of the bird toy parts that have been scattered around her room for the past month. She was happy about that! Haha! Tonight we are making a toy that looks like bird. You will need,

- Cardboard
- Coffee filters
- Finger traps
- Beads
- Little bird toy trinket pieces
- Safe stringing material
- OPTIONAL white paper

Take a large piece of cardboard and cut out a nice sized bird head and body. Once you have the body cut out, take a piece of string and knot the bottom, then poke a hole in sorta in the middle of your cutouts body, but a little lower. String your string through the hole, with the knot being on the back side. Take some coffee filters, and cut the sides into strips and poke holes in the middles. String those on like you would for a puff, one facing down, one facing up, and so on, until it is a nice sized puff on the body. String on a bead and knot it. Now poke a hole in the middle of the cutout near the bottom. Take a piece of string and knot them bottom, then string it through the hole with the knot on the front side (you won't see it, it will be under the puff). Take three finger traps, and string those on. Then string on a bead and knot it tight. Once they are tied, you can stick them out in different directions like a tail. For the head, it will be different for everyone depending on what kind of bird you want it to look like. We did a Green Cheek Conure. If you want an eye ring, cut out a small oval and poke a hole in the middle. Then to attach the eye, poke a hole on the cutout where you want it to be, take a piece of string and tie a knot at the bottom, string it through, and then string on the paper, and then a dark bead. Then knot it. To put on markings, you will do the same thing with the holes and string. Just add them (beads and random toy pieces) however you'd like in what ever colors you want. To make it so that you can hang it, you can make a loop, make a small hole in the cutouts head, and then string the loop through. Or, you can tie a bagel to a piece of string, then make a small hole in the cutout under the puff and string it through the hole with the bagel on the back side. Then knot it. You can then attach it by sticking the bagel through the cage bars and turning it the opposite way so that it stays.

I will post a picture of both the front and back sides of this toy in my gallery.

Thank you SO much for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

  Hi Chyna
I wonder why bunny is watching your mom so close? Do you think he is watching to make sure she is being good just like you?
Was another gloomy cool and rainy day here. The only time my mom left the house was to have blood drawn for her upcoming dr appointment next Friday. Other then thst it was a very lazy quiet boring day but I loved having mom home. Hope your weekend is off to a good start. Have a good night.

Come visit me, Hulk vote Grey Bird BOTM.

  Hi Chyna
Thanks for the pineapple information and appreciate it very much!!
Today mom was home all day though she was downstairs cleaning a little bit so I had to be in my condo then. Maybe this feather trim is keeping her home now.
After she got her feather trim yesterday all her curls were gone so she had to give herself another perm when she got home. When mom does that she hides out in the back room till she is done because she doesn’t want me around the stinky stuff. Good it don’t take her long though and a double good cause dad was home so I could be out of the condo at least.
I did get my bath today and mom blow dried me cause it was a little chilly and she don’t want me getting chilled. I am still fixing my feathers and picking out all those little white fuzzies too.
Mom got her duplicate drivers license today in the mail so she will put those back and use her original ones though. She has to get new ones next year for her birthday present anyway LOL. “A memory last forever never does it die. True friends stay together and never say goodbye.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Chyna
I think we can eat most any nuts. I know Gus loves walnuts. Mom gets me cashews and almonds, because she can buy them raw at Trader Joe's. She feels they are healthier that way. She also picks up unsalted peanuts in the shell for me and puts them in my foraging toy. I get a pecan piece once in a while, and I do like the bits of walnut that are in some of Mom's Lean Cuisines. Just stay away from salted nuts, and you should be fine.

Well, Mom took her last antibiotic today, and the cough is almost gone. Hopefully by the time she tries the gym again on Monday, it will actually work. She is feeling a lot better.

Mom abandoned me this morning to go to the bank with Dad and deposit her two tax checks, plus he had his tax checks and a couple of reimbursements from insurance. Since she was not gone very long, I did forgive her.

Fortunately for me Mom is rereading one of her favorite book series, and since she is just on book one of four I am getting lots of Mom time. Plus we shared a half sandwich of warm pastrami and provolone on sourdough for lunch. I really do love pastrami, probably the best of all the meats I get to share with my mom. She is pretty fond of it too, but we both get enough. Then we shared a tapioca pudding cup for dessert! Now that is definitely high on my list of favorite treats. Love that stuff!!

  Hi Chyna
Oh you sure can say that again about Candida,she is quite the diva and really plays the part well with her high pitched wails if she doesn't get what she wants right away and now Mom has to make sure the door to our room is shut before she can clean her cage or else Mom will be running back and forth through the dining room and Bird Room for a good long time!Mom is threatening to clip Candida's flights if she keeps this up.She has got to learn to come when she's called and to step up when told to do so.She's so spoiled by my dad too!She cries and he comes running to her.
How awesome that Aunt Jane found a new dr that she likes.Those are hard to come by these days!I agree with you about it being too hot at 90's at this time!That is good temperatures for June July and August like you said but not for Spring!We'll be lucky if we get close to the 60's these days!Looks like starting tomorrow its gonna rain for a good part of next week!UGGGGGH!
I'll bet you made such a lovely artistic design on your cage floor and the floor your cage is on!Don't you love that colored wood,it really makes for greatness in chewing!
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 53 the lows of 40 and its 53 right now.We were all rudely awakened early this morning with the sounds of trucks and banging and lots of noise.The neighbor across the street from us is having her whole paved driveway dug up right down to the dirt,the trucks are scraping and loading all the busted up pieces of pavement into trucks that will get rid of them and there's back hoes and roller trucks and guys out there with axes chopping up the dirt etc.Just Thursday she had a big scrub pine that reached up to the sky taken down.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and gave us our bean mix.Nana sent us home with some eggs and Mom mixed that into our bean mix.She got dad his breakfast of blueberry waffles and coffee and then she started on some chores she didn't do since she was gone all day yesterday and too tired to do them when she came home.Dad was waiting on skin bro to contact him to help him move today to the apartment next to skin sis.So far we haven 't heard a thing.So far both Mom and dad will be home today with us and its another uneventful day and who can complain about that?Not Us!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for pretty Chyna Girl!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hi Chyna,

How are you, Girlfriend? It's Oz. Sorry I haven't been on much this week as Mom wasn't on her Laptop much. Mom tried going on BC on her iPhone to blog but every time she did she would lose them. So she won't do that anymore!

Wow your Pool is 90! Many years ago when we had a huge above ground Pool we had temps her at 100-105 degrees out and the Pool water would be way too warm so they use to throw huge chunks of ice in it LOL! Aunt Shirl likes her Pool that warm but Mom doesn't care! When they open the Pool in a few weeks Mom goes right in it! She doesn't care what the temp is! She's already been in it when they first opened it & it was 58!! Who does that??? Our crazy Mom that's who LOL!

Okay, hope you're having a fun weekend with your Mom & Dad. Oh wait does your Mom have your Skin Sis's Shower this weekend? IF so, hope she has fun. Here's a vote for you, Chyna. Bye for now.

Love & Winghugs,
Oz (Your Pink Friend)

  Hi Chyna
It's Alex.
Hey, Bunni can be your assistant.
Guess what? It rained last night. Dad never saw it coming. We got a "soaking" 0.03 inches. Dad never made it out to mow the front yard yesterday and today it's too wet to mow. Their friends will be in tomorrow so dad may try to get it all done in one day. Yeah, RIGHT!
Mom sent dad back to Costco yesterday. The coupons expire today and mom wanted things. Well, so did everybody else in La Habra and dad swears they were all at Costco. It took dad almost 2 hours to get the stuff and get home and he was not a happy shopper. But mom was starting to fix a pork butt roast with roasted veggies so dad mellowed out real fast. It's one of his favorites.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 71 and a low of 50. Maybe it will rain some more.
QUESTION:
If mom was cooking a pork butt roast, does that mean that there is a hog running around somewhere that can't sit down?
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

  Hi Chyna
Each animal gets its own case number, and if it's in a litter, they mark the animals with white out. They may get a dot on their head, 2 or 3 dots on the head, ears get marked, and if there are more than 8, paws can get marked too. The white out doesn't hurt them, but it helps identify them.
Mom wasn't going to, but she posted 2 pics of me in my collar, because some birdies asked to see. As you can see, it's like a turtleneck. I hope it comes off soon, because it's keeping me from getting spritzed or getting a bath. Mom is afraid to wet it, thinking that might damage my skin under it.
Today there's not much going on. It's a beautiful day outside, though. Mom walked the dogs in sunshine! She'll spend part of today getting ready for the opera tonight. Aunt Ginny can't go with her, so her niece Jessica is going to pick mom up for dinner and the opera. The opera is The Rake's Progress, which mom has never heard. It's by Igor Stravinsky, who wrote some controversial music in his day, like the Firebird and the Rite of Spring. Those are both ballets that mom likes, so hopefully the opera will be at least interesting.
I hope you are having a great day today, getting some sun and lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Dear Chyna, love from Jen & flock
...we would pay to see Bunni and aunt Jane hopping along watering the plants! Unfortunately doctors are a necessary evil as our parents age, without them, our daddy would have passed long ago, God Bless them all! We want to keep him as long as possible! The Occupational Therapists wants to modify dad's bathroom a little bit to make it more handicapped friendly, it is all for free through the Vets Administration! Dad was up early loading more trash in a large box and taking it out to the covered trash can, things are still moving along, but very slowly, he will get it all done eventually! He misses Jen and LaLo so much, they could always pick up the slack time and make him happy when he became sad and lonely, much like phone calls from our BC friends!! Have a great Saturday dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny, Ms LaLo, Angel Christy, and our trying hard daddy

Come visit me, Mr Ziggy-Chyna dear I am trying to be a good YCM, Jenny Lynn & Cannonade~Stand back we're coming, Limon Dallas~Love my home & still see my old mom, The Raiders~Happy New Year from the team in 2014!!, Love from Christy~Ready for the BC Derby!, Ms LaLo Lee~Ready for the Derby & Easter... & Mr Flash~Summer at the McAviay.

  Hi, Chyna
Weddings are big business these days. Gotta make choices or else things are sold out, unavailable and have to settle for whatever can get. Hopefully skinsis will finalize things soon.

Sounds like your mom is making friends with Bunni that he's comfortable walking with her. Know you are the best supervisor but no reason he can't hang out too.

Getting warmer around here. Sure hope the a/c at mom's work is fixed better before summer since it always seems hot in the place by afternoon. A coworker who has been at that location awhile says it won't be too bad.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  so aunt Jane has a new friend ?
What a lovely afternoon yesterday ! Mom came straight home from school plopped down on the sofa and skritched my head :) When I started squawking, she brought me my bath tub and we both got soaked before settling down for a nice long talk and the singing of some songs :) Daddy made burritos for dinner so mom didn't even have to leave me to fix dinner ! ! Then I got apple for dessert ! ! Life is good !

It'll be even better after the weekend of drama club ! This morning she and dad will do some grocery shopping before she heads back to school to start getting everything ready. I'll bet she'll even try to take a nap - cause it'll be a mighty late night ! Cast party till midnight ! Two adults with 47 young teens (6-8 grade) ! Pretty scary !

Well, you have a great Saturday ! See you tomorrow :) love Cookie

Come visit me, Cookie is ready to win !, BC Library Now Open & Fly with the angels my Sally.
