Mr SKY & the lovely MISS BIG BABY (BB) are to be wed in JANUARY 2014
date to be announced
Baby is the LOVE-OF-MY-LIFE- , and always will be.

THE SPOTLIGHT ON CARING blogs will resume in November 2013 with Polly & Zippy



Sky was a bird that was extremely abused early in his life. He sustained many injuries that where never treated.
At 2 years old SKY was rescued and went to live in a parrot rescue near London, Ont. He lived there for 7 years. It became necessary to rehome SKY into a forever home with someone who would accept and make allowances for his disabilities. By chance I saw something regarding Sky on the internet and decided to check it out. I am so glad that my curiosity brought us together. HE is a true gentleman and a spokes bird about abuse and rescues.
He travels around Eastern Ontario where he & Momma Deb speak to people or groups about humane bird care, about abuse and about bird rescues etc.
HE is a home town celebrity, with people stopping in to visit with him regularly.

  HI Sky
Last night mom's granddaughter Anna came by with a little grey catbird she found on the ground with twine wrapped around its feet and legs. She had cut the twine off but the baby was obviously too young to be on its own yet. So Anna brought it over here, and she and mom took it to the center. Mom checked in on it today, and it was doing well in the incubator.
Mom cleaned the mammal nursery today. There were 27 possums, probably 20 squirrels, both Fox and Gray squirrels combined. None of them were getting hand fed any more, so there were several different diets to prepare, too. Especially among the squirrels, there were 3 different recipes, depending on the age of the squirrels. Mom swears she probably has 150 animal recipes in her head from working there! She also helped one of the newer volunteers by capturing and putting a duck into its carrier so the girl could clean her cage. She was a little intimidated by the duck.
It's going to be a busy day for mom for at least awhile yet. She has an eye appointment at 3, and is going to dinner with her sister after. Hopefully they won't be too late, so we can get some cuddle time.
I hope you are having a good day there. It's partly sunny here, and seems to be warming up a little. Get lots of well deserved attention today, even if you have to squawk for it! Hugs, Peppino

  Hooray for Friday ! And it's a half day for mom too - the first Friday of every month the kids have an early dismissal and the staff has its faculty meeting. Only there was no mention of lunch being served on the Faculty Notes this week and that usually means . . . SHORT ! So as soon as daddy is home they'll leave on the car shopping adventure.

My Laura just got her car yesterday - she got a Ford Escape. Her Focus went kaput :( No surprise - it had 189,000 miles on it ! Her father got it for her for high school graduation. Mom's sister is still driving mommy's old Taurus - it has 165,000 miles on it - so, yup, I'd say we're a Ford family. In fact, mommy's sister will probably take daddy's Fusion (92,000 miles) and he'll take mom's (only 70,000 and it's 6 years old). Since daddy takes the train, and the station is only a couple miles away, in the 6 years mom has had her car, he put only 25k-30k on the other one.

We're still rainy and yucky and cold ! It's May and people are still wearing coats and socks - not mom - she hates socks ! Me ? I think they're great for chewing ! When daddy puts his feet up on the coffee table, it's the first thing I check out ! har har har !

We're having that dark, dismal, gray sky weather here, with rain, drizzle, and just wet off and on all night yesterday and all day today.
This morning when mom walked the dogs, it was raining. When she left for the museum, it looked like it was drying up, but when she left there, it started raining again.
Mom had 2 tours with third grades this morning: one on PA natural history and one on biomes of the world. Both of these tours are docent favorites during tour season, because most of the kids come to see the dinosaurs, so anything away from dinosaur hall is a welcome relief. This is also the busiest week of the year for tours, so all the docents are on duty, so to speak.
The first group went to geology hall, to talk about ancient PA, see the coal forest, and talk about fossil fuels before going into gems and minerals to see the stones from PA. Following that, they went to several dioramas on the second floor that feature PA animals, then out to see reptiles and amphibians. The little ones were active and involved, and the tour was good.
For the biomes group, mom did a couple of dinosaurs, then concentrated on 3 biomes in Africa, since that is a great hall. They did desert, Savannah, and tropical rain forest there, and by then their hour was up.
Mom stopped on the way home to pick up some berries and meat for tonight, and now she's ours for the rest of the day. That's always music to our ears! We love having mom home with us.
I hope you are having a fun day today, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Another dark cloudy day - the only day without rain till Monday according to the weather guessers. Only no sunshine either, and I have to tell you - I'm a pretty cranky quaker in this weather - even with my lamp on ! Mom too - she can't wait for some sunhine . . . she doesn't squawk and carry on quite as much as I do, but I know she's still not happy about it !

Today is the day she takes Landon to his gym class . . . tomorrow is the car shopping day ! She and dad have been very happy with the Fords they've had so she'll probably be looking at an Edge - she wants to go bigger than her Fusion - there was a time she would have been concerned about the gas, but she doesn't do all that much driving - under 12k a year. It's so cramped when we are all traveling upstate . . . so they'll start at Ford - but her mind is open and since there's no big rush, she has time to look.

Don't forget about the Derby celebration over at NAME THAT TUNE on page 231616 ! Have a great Thursday - love Cookie

Falco's news: The vet is very pleased with my progress. The scab fell off my booboo when she toweled me yesterday. She examined the wound to make sure it wasn't seeping anywhere, and it wasn't, which made her happy. There is still one tiny hole where it isn't quite healed yet, but it's well on its way. I have a whole bunch of new feathers coming in, both on my chest and on my leg! Even where I tore the skin so far, there are feather follicles still there, so the doctor is pretty sure I'll grow them back. We have another appointment next week, and I still have the collar on, so no baths or spritzes.
Yesterday mom saw a hummingbird on our azalea. She got all excited, and will clean and fill the feeder today. It was a female, which means there might be a nest nearby.
Mom finally planted her larkspur seeds, but it might be too late. Our neighbor, who gave her the seeds, already has plants 4 inches or so high!
Today mom is off, but has some errands to run, so we'll be in lockdown for a couple of hours, until she gets back. It's a beautiful spring day here, kind of cool, but sunny. I hope you are getting some good spring weather there, along with cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Happy humpday ! ! It's another dark and rainy one here - so depressing . . . I napped again yesterday and squawked for an early night-night - it was soooo dark ! It's supposed to stay this way through the weekend too - YIKES ! Not a whole lot of rain but drizzly and dismal . . .

Daddy is finally taking mom out looking for a car on Friday after school. I think helping g'ma get hers (Hyundai Accent) made him see that he would like to drive mom's . . . and of course mom is ready for something new ! That's the way it works in our house - mom gets new, dad gets mom's, and one of the nieces gets dads. Our family gets every last mile out of every vehicle !

That's all the news from here - except for very soon starting the end of school countdown . . . have a good day cutie ! love Cookie

Today is pretty cloudy looking, and it's cool out there, in the 50s right now, and only going into the low 60s. Mom will get some laundry done, and may change out some of her winter things for more spring and summer things. At least the quilt on the bed is finally changed to the summer weight one.
Today is Falco's vet appointment, and it's at 2:40, which should get mom back on the road well before traffic starts. Mom is hoping only one or 2 more, and she'll be okay. The vet hasn't really done anything the past 2 times, except look at her booboo and see that it's healing so we're not expecting anything else today. Mom is resigned to Falco wearing this collar until the feathers are more grown in, too. She seems to be used to it now, though.
I hope you are having a great beautiful spring day today, getting lots of sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Tuesday is no longer mom's humpday ! Now it's a Wednesday just like the rest of the world :) She and her co-coach cleaned up the stage after school yesterday and put all the props and sets away. When she got home we played peek a bird ! It is a favorite game of mine - we play it like hide and seek - I hide under a heap of paper or in a box and mom calls for me . . . and calls and calls . . . till I holler PEEK-A-BIRD !

We are in the middle of a dreary rainy week - on and off all week long. The sun came out just long enough last night for the parronts to go take a walk by the river while I enjoyed my nutriberri. After some skritching time, it was night-night. Now I've got today to look forward to :)

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 Falco has a follow up appointment with the vet; she is seeing that girl before rush hour starts, YAY! She's going to see more than 2 feathers growing in, too. Mom says it looks like a bunch of chest feathers are coming. I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

  Good Morning sweety
BB rolls over in her sleeping bag & sees Sky is no where to be seen.
Then she hears pots being clanged around outside. BB looks out the tent flap & sees Sky is trying to fix breakfast!! BB hurrys out to take over so they have something to eat that is not burnt.

Mr Sky just grins & goes to take care of the horses and get there saddles ready for the ride home.

After cleaning up the campsite & bringing in some wood for the next birds to use Sky & BB start the slow ride back home around the far side of the BC mountains & then the Castle lake.

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, Peppino

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.

Now things can get back (sort of) to normal here ! I hope ! But, like aunt Karen said - it'll be time to wrap up the school year soon and that means extra work . . . but at least it means summer is almost here !

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 . . .you have a good day ! love Cookie

Falco's update: 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. I feel pretty good, though. Hugs, Falco
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, Peppino

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

Mom's sister drove her to the eye surgeon yesterday, and in spite of messed up directions from MapQuest, they managed to find the place. The directions told them to do a U turn and go back up the same road, but the place was to their right where the U turn was indicated! Anyway, the doctor did the laser procedure in her right eye, and said he didn't think the left one needed it at all, and maybe never would. Wouldn't that be great? So she has to put in prednisone drops for 5 days, and see her regular eye doc next week for a follow up. She's already seeing better, though. Mom went to dinner with her sister while they waited for the prescription drops to be ready.
This morning mom had the bunny room to clean. She cleaned about 22 cages, with about 40 or so bunnies. There was another person in there weighing them, so that was a huge help. In the middle of cleaning the bunnies, the director came in and asked mom to tube feed 6 possum babies, so she left to do that, too. The babies were in an incubator in the mammal nursery, in a Christmas stocking. Cute, right? They didn't want to go back in there after they were fed, so mom just covered them with a soft blanket and left the stocking in with them. Possums are so cute when they are that little, and they are pretty easy to intubate. Of course, mom clogged one of the feeding tubes, and squirted possum milk all over the place, including her glasses and face. It all worked out though. She managed to get them all done. The staff was complaining about tubes clogging when she went back to the bunny room, so she was glad it wasn't just her.
Now mom is ours for the rest of the day. She needs to do some laundry, but other than that, she's ours, all ours.
It's still pretty cool here, in the low 50s with cloud cover, so it doesn't look too good outside. I hope you are getting better weather, and lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Peppino

  Hooray for Friday ! Mom and co-coach decided that today - no rehearsal - just practice curtain calls. That means she'll be home before 4:00 ! I think I heard daddy say something about burritos - they're soft, so mom just hopes they won't be too spicy (even though that's the way she loves them !) and irritate her mouth.

I've been busy dragging my measuring cups and paper towel rolls from my gym into my cage and then standing guard over them - I do love my heaps ! Mom says though that she may clean it out when she gets home today - I'll work on figuring out a better hiding place while she's gone . . .

Tomorrow, no visiting with the g'parronts - that'll wait till Sunday, so that means I'll have to wait for my veggies too . . . although it looks like the garden shop down the road is getting ready to open - the owner is a bird lover and always sends something yummy home for me ! He has a 'too who comes to work with him on nice summer days . . .

Here's Falco's update from the vet visit: I had another visit with Dr. Pleban yesterday afternoon, and she says I'm healing quite nicely. All my meds are done, and she said I don't need any more. I have several feathers growing in, the scab on the inside of my leg is gone, and the big one on the outside is looking good. She says everything is moving right along. She left my little turtleneck collar on, and wants to see me next week. She made the appointment, to make sure her staff knows that when she says one week, that's what she means.
My appointment yesterday was at 3:30, which put us in the middle of rush hour traffic again, but mom chose a different route home, so the trip home only took 40 minutes, not 80 like last week. Next week my appointment is 2:40, so we shouldn't hit any traffic there or back except for school buses. Hugs, Falco
Today it's raining hard out there, but of course the dogs still wanted a walk. It's funny, because they hide under the overhang on the deck when mom puts them out in the rain, but they'll walk on leads right out in the rain! Mom got wet, too, even though she was carrying an umbrella. It's a spring rain, though, so it will be good for the flowers. Temps are mid 50s, it feels like.
Mom is getting that laser treatment on her eyes today, we think. She doesn't know if he'll do both eyes today or not, but we're kind of hoping he does, just to get it over with.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

It's Thursday already and that means pretty soon drama club will be over - today after school is dress rehearsal - that means they stay till they finish - usually between 6 and 6:30 . . . sigh - another late night :( At least mom's mouth is starting to feel better - yesterday she had an apple ! Of course it took almost 20 minutes to eat cause she had to cut it into small pieces . . . boy I could have finished it off in a quarter of that time ! I can't wait to see what she tries today ! It'll take a whole day to eat breakfast at this point ! sheeesh !

The sun is back and the weather yesterday was really nice so I got to watch out the window and yell to the wild birds and squirrels and school buses ! More of the same today - you have a wonderful day too :) Enjoy every moment ! love Cookie

Here's Falco's update: Today is my vet appointment, I hope she says I'm healing and maybe can take off the collar. If not, maybe next time. I have 2 new feathers that mom can see on my chest, but the rest is still bald. Anyone know how long it takes? Hugs, Falco
Mom had 2 tours this morning with first grades. They all wanted dinosaurs and friends, and both groups had booked a pterosaur time after their tour, so mom knows they will have a great time. One of the little guys kept trying to correct mom when she said pterosaur! He kept saying pterodactyl, so she finally told him that pterodactyl names one animal in the group, but pterosaur is the name for the whole group. He was very cute!
I hope your weather is better than ours today. It's 62 and cloudy, looks like rain any second. We are hoping the rain doesn't come until mom is back from the vet's office. I hope that you are getting lots of attention, cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Peppino

Happy humpday ! Although this week with mom's rehearsal schedule, EVERY day feels like a humpday ! By the time she got home last night, I was one cranky quaker - it's not easy work taking care of a sick daddy ! I gave her the cold shoulder for quite a while . . . but then I really NEEDED a head skritching and nobody is quite as good, so I forgave her :) We had some cuddle time and I almost got to chew the rubber buttons on the phone - but she's pretty quick for an old lady !

The other good news is . . . mom ate a cracker ! All she wanted was something crunchy ! So she broke it into small pieces and chewed on the other side of her mouth, and it worked . . . it would take forever to eat too much crunchy stuff, but as long as she's able to start small she'll be happy. Just in time too - I think I actually caught her eyeing my pellets ! !

  hi mr. Sky
Mom had her stitches out last night - now she's sore and her mouth is still tender . . . even the coffee hurts ! YIKES ! She goes back for a check up in 2 weeks and then first week of June she goes for the temporary crown. Daddy woke up with a cold this morning - sheesh, I can see I've got my work cut out for me today ! Get me my nurse's cap ! ! !

Plus, thunderboomers rolled in over night and the rain is coming on and off all day. That means indoor recess . . . even the junior high will be antsy at rehearsal today -

Have a great day my friend ! love Cookie

  Happy Monday from Flitzer
"There's Nothin' in the Bowl, Dad"
........................
Dad says that bowl was for mixing our Quadruple-Berry Muffins. We love those!

Hope you had a great weekend. Nice here -Dad was busy in and out, but we got some time together. Cool mornings but warm afternoons here. Dad never knows which jacket to grab.

Today I'm visiting Aunt Maria for my "Day of Beauty" aka wings and claws day.
Dad holds me without the towel [hate the towel], so it's not so bad.

It's Monday already again ! Mom got the whole bedroom done yesterday, she's ready for the warm weather to stay now ! Me and daddy played and watched some tv - that is till mom and dad decided to go to the park for a walk since the weather was so nice . . .

This is mom's busy week at school - drama club production week. She has rehearsals every single day ! Dress rehearsal is on Thursday so she'll be extra late :(

Actually, she'll be extra late today too, since after rehearsal she goes to have the stitches out of her mouth . . . she can't wait to eat real food ! ! Now her gum has to heal for 4-6 weeks before the temporary crown goes on - and another couple before the permanent one is ready - that's almost summer ! !

Daddy will be home today though . . . he's taking g'pa to the cardiologist - in a couple weeks they want to put in a defibrillator and daddy has lots of questions so he wants to go with g'pa.

  HI Sky
It's a bit warmer today than it was yesterday. It's around 70 and sunny right now. Mom went to the bird show this morning, and it was pretty good. She bought some new sea grass mats with toys on them, some poop off, many other toys (of course), and a huge bag of fresh chop. The chop was being sold fresh to benefit a parrot rescue group, so mom was happy to contribute. The lady making it made an immense plastic bin full! She put in more things than mom cuts up every day, so we're going to try it with Maxine and we boys. Mom might give Falco some too, to see if she'll eat it.
She got to see 2 presentations at the bird show, one on how to make chop, and one about the new rescue in our area. They had lots of birds with them, including 2 adorable nandays and a galah that mom was really admiring. I have to say that she came home with lots of stuff, but no new birds. This place offers foster opportunities though, so she's thinking about that. There were the usual raffles going on, as well as a huge raffle for an outdoor aviary. Mom did not buy tickets for that one, though! She'd never get it put up outside.
When she left the show, she stopped at Moio's, a local Italian bakery, to take some goodies to Aunt Ginny who is recovering from pneumonia. Mom was her first company, although her adult kids have been with her every day and evening for the past 2 weeks. They had a nice visit, then mom came back here and divided the chop into some smaller containers for the freezer. It's supposed to be good frozen for 3 months. She is really hoping we'll eat it.
Here's Falco's update: The vet called yesterday and changed my appointment to this week. She had wanted to see me in a week, but the front desk made the appointment for 2 weeks instead, due to availability (mom's and the vet's). So, I'm going in this Wednesday at 3:30, which means another trip in rush hour traffic to return home, but it's all good. Mom says as long as I'm getting better, that's what counts. We can sing in the car on the way home. Hugs, Falco
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

  Hello my beloved
I tried to come visit you you yesterday but the border guards would not let me in.

So today I am flying my shuttle over them. I gave them a raspberry (not the eating kind) as I passed over them.

I have been taking good care of our horses at the KB barn. They do need to be ridden more.

Now that summer is here maybe we can do a day trip into the BC mountains. We might run out of hay for the horses & spend the night out there.
I know you would protect me from any untame birds & other animals out there.

Yours forever Mrs BB Thrift

Come visit me, Mrs BB- My new Derby hat !!!!, TPB&G., Laka is sitting on the casthe throne now, Charley Bird, The Bird. Lets play BazBall !!!!!!, Officer Sequia policing the KB !!! & Buba, ready for the race.

  Yesterday turned out to be a really pretty day, and as promised, mom came home with wax beans and sugar snap peas for me :) We played some, had dinner and then it was my night-night time. Today she only has to go to the laundromat (the heavy winter comforter won't fit in the machine here) - then she's spring cleaning in the bedroom. Me and dad will play and watch tv in the living room :)

The weather has cooled down from the high 70's back into the 60's where it should be this time of year - still warm enough for open windows :) Remember, today is the last day to try your wing at this week's songs over at NAME THAT TUNE on page 231616, so if you haven't yet, get your tail feathers over there !

Love Cookie

  HI Sky
It got a lot cooler overnight, it's around 53 right now. We were getting spoiled with those really warm sunny days. The rain was needed, even though we didn't get much, but the cooler temps are more normal for this time of year.
Falco only has until Tuesday with the antibiotic, and the pain med was done yesterday. Mom can see some new feathers!
Mom is off today! What a treat that is for all of us. She will be able to spend a lot of time with us, and she'll get some yard work done, too. Our neighbor Jeff gave mom 2 dahlias and an amaryllis. Mom found space for the amaryllis on the windowsill, but the dahlias are outside the front door right now. It's way too soon to plant them, even though they are growing. Mom is leaving them outside to harden off, but if it gets too cold, she'll bring them into the kitchen. I guess it's time to look at all the geraniums, dahlias, and tuberous begonias she put in the garage last fall, to see if any survived the winter. We'll let you know.
Tomorrow is a bird show, new to our area! It's being run by a different sponsor, and looks interesting, with presentations and even a movie or 2. Someone will be there talking about chop, there looks to be a lot going on. I'll tell you what mom brings home tomorrow, since we'll be blogging later in the day.
I hope you are having a great day today, enjoying a good Saturday with family, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Don't forget to vote in the ladies' and gents' hat contests on the milonga page. Hugs, Peppino

Mom finally caught up on her sleep after Thursday's trip. We cuddled up last night and talked about her leaving for a whole long day . . . and she said she's going off to visit the g'parronts today ! sheeesh ! At least when she comes home I'll have my veggies :) Last night we shared some watermelon - boy was it good ! I love food ! ! !

A little cooler here this weekend - yesterday we were near 80 ! Today and through the week mid-60's. As long as the sun shines, I'm good with that ! Hope you have a terrific day :) love Cookie

Hello.
A nice week here in Buffalo - warmer, with a little rain. Now it's going to be cooler, but not too bad.
--
Dad is making preparations for his May trip to see Grandma in Kentucky. He will be there for Mother's Day and on Derby Day as well. [I'm suggesting a flowered hat, but he doesn't like the idea].
When Grandma calls on Sunday I call to her, sometimes making their conversation hard to hear.
"I'm here, Grandma, it's me, Flitzer". She often wonders how Dad can live with me. Ha-Ha.
--
Aunt Kathy, the bird-sitter will be checking in on me, while Dad is away.
Last time, we were both miserable to each other. Dad is asking me to PLEASE TRY and be good. We shall see...

  HI Sky
Mom's eye is still a little sensitive today, still watering, too. It should be better soon, though. She had to wait forever yesterday: her appointment was at 9:40, and they didn't leave the doctor's office until nearly noon. She hasn't had a shot for 12 weeks, though, so that's good.
Mom went to traffic court last evening. She left here early and battled the downtown traffic, but it was worth it. Her original ticket, which she never saw on the car, was for $25. By the time they wrote to her, the fine had increased to $48, and was set to go to $63 in 2 days from when she opened the letter! Of course, she tossed the original parking receipt when she changed purses to travel to FL, so she didn't have that. The magistrate lowered the fine to $10, though, so between that and the $6 parking fee, she still came out ahead by $47. That made it worth the trip. The magistrate said her time ran out at 3:52, and the ticket was issued at 3:53! The meter person must have been standing there just waiting. Mom was back at the car by 4.
Today mom cleaned the RVS room. There are 3 carriers with raccoons in them, plus 3 baby red foxes in a larger cage in there. All the babies are adorable, and she loved being in there today. Keep that in mind when she complains about it in a few weeks, when there will be probably 20 cages full of RVS animals, and the room is packed! Mom also did dishes and laundry while she was up there today, so it was a pretty good day at the center.
I hope you are voting in the hat contest every day.
It's a gloomy looking day here today; we had rain overnight and it's supposed to rain later today as well. The good news is that we need the rain, it's a spring rain, so nice for the plants, and the overnight rain was gentle, too, no storms.
I bet you are having a good spring day too, complete with lots of cuddles and scritches for you, a good birdie! Hugs, Peppino
