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
What a fiasco with prom last night, I hope you saved some of your best steps for next week! Mom was able to sign on, but it was taking forever for blogs to show up, then she checked her email and found it was not only her, but lots of folks who were having problems. The Milonga team made a decision to call it a wash last night and reschedule it for next week, same time, same place.
Meanwhile, today it's a beautiful, sunny, hot day already. Mom has pool plans for sure. The dogs were panting so mom cut their walk a bit short this morning. She encourages them to walk on the asphalt most of the time, but today she was trying to get them to walk on yards where their feet could stay a bit cooler.
The plants will all get watered when mom gets back today, as she wants to do blogs now while BC is up and running. The day lilies are starting to bloom, so the yard is awash with color right now. The Asiatic and oriental lilies have buds, too. Cherry bells are in bloom, and of course, cosmos, zinnias, marigolds, lobelia, and a few dahlias, although not all of them have buds yet. There is a pepper on the pepper plant, flowers on the zucchini, and some of the tomatoes have flowers on them, too. It looks good out there!
I hope you are having a great summer day with lots of sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Well, despite Milonga being postponed till next week due to BC obstacles, those of us who were able to get there had a great time eating and dancing the night away ! Now, we not only had a fun time last night, we have something to look forward to all week long :)

Weather is heating up today - nearing 90 . . . any errands to do better get done quick and early so we can hang out together here at home . . . don't know if mom and daddy will take their walk today or not. I do know we are in desperate need of some more fat juicy strawberries ! Mom was lucky enough to come home with my string beans and sugar snap peas yesterday at least :)

Have a wonderful and peaceful Sunday . . . love Cookie

Gene came to the pool for awhile yesterday, and when mom asked him if he was coming again today, he said maybe Wednesday. He truly didn't know what day it was! Of course, traveling and getting settled in again is difficult, but he's one of the smartest people mom knows, so she was surprised at his answer.
Today we are going to have mom for nearly all day, with only her pool time away from us. If we could go there, we would, too! Tonight is the milonga, though, so we have to stay here to practice our dance steps for the big night.
I hope you are having a good day today, with lots of sunny weather, cuddles, and scritches coming your way. See you at the milonga, I hope! Hugs, Peppino

Can you believe mom's vacation is already a week old ? Yesterday both mom and dad went to the g'parronts to take some old junk to the dump and today they're going again just for a visit ! Sheesh ! Guess I'll pull out mom's old disco singles from her college days and practice my dance moves for tonight's prom by myself !

At least it's not steamy like in some places of the country - we've been in the mid-80's with lots of sunshine. Only problem is things are starting to look a little brown since the rain never showed up . . .

Thanks to Kaji's wonderful mom, we got that pic in a jpg format so mom put it on all our pages for a few days. Aunt DJ is a genius! The skull mom's holding is archaeopteryx, and she loves showing it, as it's the first known bird.
Today mom cleaned the recovery room, which has a variety of turtles, a snake, and some ducks. The hybrid domestic duck she checked in last week is in the center part of the building, but mom couldn't see if she was still on eggs or not. The ducks in the recovery room were all doing quite nicely, and the turtle with the nail polish is getting cleaner and cleaner, YAY! There is a little painted turtle in there too. When mom took its food out she laughed, because whoever fed them yesterday must have thought this turtle was a giant. There was more food in the cage than turtle. He's a pretty active little one, too, but not using a back leg, so mom is hoping for the best for him.
The snake is very cool! It's a water snake, so it's in an aquarium with a lid.
It was reasonably sunny, so mom went to the pool after the center. Her friend Gene is in from Germany, so he met her there and stayed to swim for an hour or so.
Now mom is ours for the rest of the evening! She will clean our cages, but it's fun time for the birdies now.
I hope you are having a great day today, getting lots of summery weather, cuddles and scritches all for you. Hugs, Peppino

Happy Friday ! Today, mom and dad have to head up to the g'parronts to do some errands for them - right after mom was gone most of yesterday doing her errands. sheessh ! Although, truth be told, she didn't mind cause she got to use her new car (best part of the Great Family Car Recycle ? She's at the top of the food <car ?> chain !) Any way, when she came home it was with some fat juicy strawberries ! I ate the little seeds off the outside of mine and used the rest to decorate some wall space. I know she appreciated my art work cause she squealed with joy - like this . . . "CCCOOOOOOkkIEEEEEEE !"

Mom's daughter is getting released from the hospital today, so mom is ready to go pick her up. We had rain and thunder boomers overnight, and it's still gray and cloudy looking. It's supposed to clear up by noon, but mom will get to the pool late, as she has to make sure her daughter is settled in at her home and has all the meds she needs. She should be leaving the hospital with at least one prescription for antibiotics.
Otherwise, today is the day mom and her sis go to dinner, so if she doesn't make the pool, she'll still go out tonight for awhile.
Update: Mom picked up her daughter and they dropped off a scrip for antibiotics. Also, it's stopped raining, but it will be muddy at the pool, so we think it's probably not going to be a good day to go.
I hope you are having an awesome day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Mom got the pic of her with the skull at the museum. It came via email today, but it's a pdf file and mom doesn't know how to convert it to jpg to put it in my gallery for a day or 2. We will welcome all suggestions.
This morning mom got her mani/pedi. She had the owner of the salon, so she was out of there in under 2 hours. Wasn't that great? She was happy to have them done finally. After she got home, she went to the pool for the afternoon. It was kind of gray and cloudy looking, but hot. She predicted that the sun would come out when she was ready to leave, and it did, of course.
Anyway now we have mom for the rest of the day, which is just fine with us! Mom's daughter is still in the hospital, so we ask for prayers for her healing. The swelling has gone up, but the redness has faded a bit.
I hope you are having a great day today, getting lots of great weather, as well as cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

  hey mr. Sky
I'd say happy humpday, but during the summer every day is happy ! ! Mom ran a few unnecessary errands yesterday (I think she just wanted to drive !) She picked up a folding exercise bike for daddy's sister's birthday (not till July 23 . . . told you she just wanted to drive !) But then she came home and we played fetch and had some quiet head skritching time :)

The weather was nice - warm, but not too humid and sticky. Today should be similar so we'll finish up with the thank you's and mom will head out to the post office. And that's it ! The rest of the day is MINE - I've got plans too you know !

love Cookie

Today mom had a tour in the morning at the museum. It was a day camp with special needs children and their chaperones. They were very late getting there, as their bus broke down, so the tour was shorter than it should have been. The kids were interested in the dinosaurs, though, and loved the touchable items mom showed.
Mom got that pic back today that the teacher from Ohio sent her a few weeks ago. Her boss said she'd email a copy too so we can post it. Mom likes it because it shows the little Archaeopteryx head.
It was grey and sticky this morning, seemed like it was going to rain any second, but it turned into a beautiful afternoon. So you know where mom went! That's right, she spent a few hours at the pool, but now she's home with us for the rest of the day. She may go to the hospital to see her daughter after dinner, but she might just stay here, too. She hasn't talked to her daughter yet. Yesterday she seemed pretty sure she'd be home today, but she texted mom and said they are keeping her again.
I hope you are having a good day today, getting lots of great summer weather as well as lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

It's the first whole day of summer . . . so we celebrated with watermelon last night ;) I do love that stuff ! I didn't get out cause it just got too hot by the afternoon - mom even put the a/c on for a while so she could cook. Another warm one today . . .

Last night mom took my heap (measuring cups, paper towel roll - a whole one - my bar bells, all out of my cage for night-night and then went to get my nutriberry. She heard daddy laughing and when she got out she saw that in that short time, I had dragged everything right back into my cage ! I'm a determined guy !

Don't know what's on today's agenda - I do know mom's hair is looking shaggy so she may try to go get a trim - when it's so warm, she doesn't like it on her neck - I think she should have feathers ! They get too long and just molt out !

Daddy is hoping mom will let him try out her new car today - hmmmmmm. . . we'll see ! I do know there's lots of room for all my toys when we go on vacation ! It'll be lots more comfy traveling - whenever it is we go -

Happy Summer! It's the longest day today, so enjoy it to the fullest! From now on, we lose a minute or so of daylight each day until the winter solstice, when the minutes start picking up again.
Mom was assigned the RVS room this morning. There are 18 cages and no fan in there. She got the first 10 cages done, then her shift was up. There were tons of raccoons, a few skunks, and a few groundhogs in there today. The one cage with 2 baby skunks had one with nearly a totally black back! He only had one white spot up near his shoulder. Mom knows that skunk stripes are as unique as fingerprints, so it's not surprising. Our education skunk Murphy has a broad white stripe, covering his whole back.
Mom's daughter was admitted to the hospital yesterday with cellulitis, and they're keeping her until at least tomorrow. Mom just talked to her, and she's fairly cheerful. She said the antibiotic didn't heal it as quickly as the doctor thought, that's why they're keeping her. Hopefully she'll be home tomorrow, though.
I hope you are having a wonderful day today, getting the most out of the first day of summer with lots of attention, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Happy Summer Solstice ! Today is the longest day of the year as we herald in summertime and I intend to make the most of every moment ! Mom's sister and my Laura are coming by later to take the old car - daddy get's mom's and mom's sister gets daddy's now that mom has her new car. In our family we drive cars till they fall apart !

Mom and dad had a nice time yesterday celebrating with g'pa. No birdie bag though :( Mom did share a cherry with me later on in the evening so I didn't complain too much . . . it was a very warm day with temps near 90, but the humidity was low so it was tolerable. Except that when the folks got home there was a message on the land line from the town that there had been a water main break and they should boil water before using it. Luckily, I drink bottled water so daddy ran down to the market to get a couple gallons for him and mom . . .

Have a super duper start of summer ! love Cookie

Happy Father's Day to the bird dads out there.
After a wonderful pool day yesterday, mom came home and spent the rest of the afternoon and evening with us. We love it when she does that, it means we all get lots of attention. This morning mom walked the girls, then watered all the plants in containers. They were starting to dry out after the 4 inches of rain they got on Thursday. The ones in the garden are still okay. Mom also weeded a little, but they are really getting ahead of her. It's tough to keep up with them.
I hope you are having a great day full of sunshine and cuddles and scritches just for you. Hugs, Peppino

  good morning !
Hooray ! Mom slept all the way till 4:45 today ! It's getting better already - of course yesterday she stayed pretty busy puttering around so she was pretty tired last night . . . it was another beautiful day here.

Great Horned Owl is the hardest working dad :

"three or five hooter" call. Then, since his own species has no architects or builders, both partners must go househunting for places like old squirrel nests, hawk nests or hollowed-out tree stumps. "I've even seen an owl take over a red-tailed hawk's nest," says ornithologist Richard J. Clark at York College of Pennsylvania.

In late winter, the female lays her two or three eggs and the male's marathon begins. While she keeps those eggs from freezing, he brings home the bacon (or, in the owl's case, rats, mice, squirrels--and even prey as large as pheasants). In most bird species, says Clark, the female is the smaller animal, but not birds of prey. So the male great horned owl must feed himself and another adult about 25 percent larger than he. With two or three hatchlings crying for food, his burden multiplies, especially since the mother is caring for owlets that can't maintain their own body temperature for the first days or weeks of life

And the flamingo :

Male flamingos are all around good guys. Even while congregating in a flock of thousands of birds, these guys remain monogamous, mating with one special gal for life. Flamingo dads are also feminists, as they wholeheartedly believe in gender equality, which is rare in the animal kingdom. When it comes time to mate, dad helps mom select a nesting site, and together they construct the nest out of mud. Once she lays her egg, the father shares in the responsibility of incubating the egg, as they take turns sitting on the nest for equal amounts of time. Once the hatchling is born, mom and dad share all parenting duties equally

Mom wrote a thank you email to i5 for getting BC back up and running. She thinks if we can all complain when it's down, we can also be gracious when it's back up. Hopefully, that will be incentive for them to keep us up and running.
Last night mom, Aunt Ginny, and Jessica had take out Thai from one of mom's favorite restaurants. Aunt Gin picked up the food on her way home from work and Jessica brought dessert. They watched Joy, with Jennifer Lawrence. It was a chick flick, which mom doesn't normally like, but she enjoyed this one. The story line was interesting. Aunt Gin got to pick the movie because it was her birthday treat. Mom signed up months ago for points from Verizon, but didn't know what to use them for. Well, when she went to rent the movie last night, she got to use some of her points, and the pay per view was free! What an unexpected treat that was!
Today it's bright and sunny out, and was pretty warm already when mom walked the dogs. So it's going to be a pool day for sure! I hope you are having a great day today, getting lots of sunshine, warm weather, cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

  Nothing like waking up to find BC working ! Of course I think mom would rather sleep in a little, but her internal clock is still on school time - even though there isn't any till the Wednesday after Labor Day ! YES ! Hopefully she'll be able to sleep more soon . . .

Perfect weather again yesterday, although it's supposed to start warming up into the 80's for today and tomorrow. I have to wait for my sugar snap peas since mom and dad aren't heading to the g'parronts till tomorrow for Father's Day. Of course g'pa got his new Father's Day TV early so tomorrow the folk will take them out to eat for lunch . . . I hope they bring home a birdie bag !

Today, I'll supervise some clean up around the house and help mom make thank you cards for the kids in her class - they were a pretty generous group at the end of the year. Maybe I'll get a treat for being so good at my job ? I always make sure there's something for mom to pick up or wipe down !

A whole new meaning to TGIF ! ! ! And a perfect start to the summer ! The BC is back up and running after shutting mom out last night while I was visiting Queen Laka - it was still out this morning before she left for her LAST day of school ! But now she's home after a 10:30 dismissal (and brunch), it's high 70's, sunny, and when she turned on the 'puter, BC was back ! Two months of Cookie and mom time !

Tomorrow she'll start on thank you's since the folks won't head up to the g'parronts till Sunday for Father's Day . . . I'll work on some lacey calculator paper for g'pa and daddy (mom had to toss one of my paper towel rolls since most of it was made into confetti and the rest ended up underneath me - ooops !)

Have a wonderful day - love you ! A happy to be back Cookie

We are hoping to get some things done today, because it's thundering right now, and we had rain pretty much all night, with thunder boomers. Most of us don't mind, but Daisy kept mom up. With her thunder shirt on, she was still nervous and whiny, pacing and jumping in her crate. Mom kept waking up to tell her to settle. She took that shirt off this morning, but it sounds like we need to put it back on little Daisy.
Mom did get the dogs walked this morning before the rain came back. She also managed to water the plants in the window box and on the porch before the rains started.
We think mom will get her nails done today after our blogs are done. It's been a couple of weeks, so it's time, and she wants fancy nails again. The blue tips are cute, but she loves the flowers and other designs that could be there. Also, today is dinner with sis. They are going to a local restaurant that neither of them has tried before.

It's turning real summer now - last night mom and dad didn't walk as far as they usually do - it was so humid, daddy was getting cranky so they headed home - alright by me ! ! He was better soon as I squawked out my greeting of "COMERE" !

It's late in the day for us to be blogging, but mom tried earlier to no avail. We have to apologize for yesterday, mom let her inner nerd out to play. The book is good, though.
When we woke up this morning it was raining. Mom delayed taking the dogs for their walk until the rain stopped, but they got their whole walk in that way. It got really nice when the pool opened, so we all know where mom was. Around 2:30 the clouds rolled in again, though, so she came home and tried BC again. It's up and running now, YAY.
Now mom is with us for the rest of the day, but our cleaning lady called off this morning, so I suspect mom will do a little cleaning tonight. I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches, and all around good weather. Hugs, Peppino

Mom watered everything last night, and some of the plants were really grateful. They looked like they were on their last gasp! She also started one of the books she won't take to the pool. It's The Story of Life in 25 Fossils. So far, she's read the chapter on stromatolites and the one on ediacara. It's a really interesting read to her, although we are sure it's not everyone's cup of tea. The book she's reading poolside is a suspense novel, her usual summer drivel.
Today looks like another great day for the pool. They are predicting high temps tomorrow and Thursday, but with rain, so we'll see.
I hope you are having a great day today, and getting lots of wonderful weather, as well as cuddles and scritches. We all deserve that kind of attention, you know. Hugs, Peppino

PS: We just thought you might not know about stromatolites and ediacara: the first is mats of cyanobacteria(blue green). People didn't know if they were fossils or not until there were some living ones found in Shark Bay, Australia. They are preCambrian in origin, and are among the first living things on earth. The second are weird plume, disc, and quilted shaped fossils found all over the world, but described from the Ediacara range in Australia. They were essentially water filled blobs of soft tissue, or if they had internal organs, none have fossilized. Very interesting, and again, PreCambrian(3.5 billion to 650 million years ago).

Another perfect day yesterday - mom and the kids had a great time . . . today they'll do a bit of cleaning and then make some "travel through 4th grade" brochures for next years group . . . maybe they'll finish watching "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs" too - they're working on a compare/contrast to the book essay. Tomorrow is field day . . .

Only the day didn't stay perfect - it got cloudy, windy and chilly again last night - right while mom and dad were at the river for their walk. Daddy gave mom the "shirt off his back" so they could finish . . . It was an extra blanket night again - low 50's. Which is OK as long as the days warm up nicely for me to get out when mom gets home !

This morning when mom went to the center, the list of assignments wasn't made up yet, so mom asked what they wanted her to do. She volunteered to do baby birds again, so she got the timer, went and got gloves, and the phone rang. She ended up taking 3 phone calls before she left the kitchen area where the gloves are. When she got back to the front, she told Colleen she'd do reception today, since the phone was ringing again. Colleen shot her a look of gratitude, and gave the timer to someone else. Mom spent her whole shift taking phone calls, returning some calls, and doing intake on animals. It seemed there was a steady stream of animals coming in today. They were up to 1685 animals for the year when mom left. She admitted several raccoons, a bunny, a pigeon, a box turtle, a duck sitting on eggs with bite wounds on her, and some others, too. They have over 100 possums right now, and 27 baby bunnies that need tube fed, too. It's quite busy, but mom didn't see one animal today, except for the intakes.
The pool was next since it was a warm sunny day. Now she's finally home, showered, and ready to spend the rest of the day and evening with us. I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of well deserved attention, as well as some beautiful spring/summer weather. Hugs, Peppino

Yesterday, other than being too windy for me to go out, turned out nice. The weather was perfect - in fact most of the week looks high 70's and low 80's with sunshine. All the chores got done, I had a bath, AND I got lots of yummy treats. Daddy grilled a steak (leftovers for steak sammiches tonight) and corn on the cob ! Life is good :) Mom made a few cards and then we just hung out and watched tv.

Today starts the final countdown - it's the class picnic day. The kids are always good when they get to play on the playground instead of work ! That's one of the things mom enjoyed about this group - they really like each other and get along well.

Yesterday was a wonderful day to be at the pool. It was very hot, but there was a nice breeze, and the water was pleasantly cool. Lots of people were there, so they had adult swims every hour, which all the adults love, since the kids have to get out of the water for 15 minutes. Mom got home from the pool, got showered, and called her daughter. They arranged a dinner time for after the horse race, so mom got us all cleaned and fed before she went to dinner at The Green Mango. They chose to go to that Thai restaurant, because there's a Mexican and a Japanese restaurant in the same complex, so if it was busy, they had alternatives. Dinner was good, and we had mom for about another hour before our bedtime.
It rained for about 10 minutes yesterday afternoon, so mom was still glad she had watered the plants in the morning.
I hope you had a great day yesterday, and will have an even better one today. Be sure to get lots of well deserved attention! Hugs, Peppino

  hi mr. Sky
We're in a cool down today - only mid 70's, but windy - looks like it'll only reach about 80 this week - perfect end of school ! In fact perfect for anytime at all :)

Mom came home with my sugar snap peas, plus some green beans, raspberries and cherries yesterday ! ! Today she'll do the rest of the marketing - I finished the radiccio with my supper last night !

Cleaning and laundry supervision today . . . a fid's work is never done ! At least I have no more schoolwork of mom's to help with ! Maybe a nice bath . . . my favorite time to make a big wet mess is right after everything else is done ! It keeps mom on her toes ! har har har

Today is beautiful, bright and sunny out there, although they are calling for rain later. The guessers said it would rain all day today, though, so what do they know? Mom practically guaranteed it would rain today, since she watered the plants this morning. It's been fairly dry for a few days and she was getting worried about them.
One of the plants Jeff gave mom was a snow pea. Last week there were some flowers, so mom figured in a couple of weeks she'd be harvesting them. Well, the plant is covered with snow peas today! That means extra treats for the boys and Maxine, because we know I won't eat them. But it also means there are enough for mom to have some too! What a treat!
Mom's daughter and SIL are back from Puerto Rico, so she asked them if they want to go out to dinner tonight so she can hear about their vacation. She's waiting to hear back from them. Last night she was out to TGIFriday's, so she hasn't cooked much at home this week at all.
I hope you are having a delightful day, full of good weather, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Mom's crown is in - no diamonds - but no pain either, which is good after the last couple months ! AND her car is on the truck and should arrive at the dealership either today or Monday :) So yesterday was an all around good day !

Of course today being Saturday, means the folks will go up to check on the g'parronts - daddy will mow while mom does some shopping. I had a yummy blueberry last night - so good in fact, I ate every bite - didn't even save any to fling !

One foot and one toe left till mom is done with school ! But who's counting ? har har har ! Have a great warm sunshiny day !

It's warming up day by day, finally. It's pretty and sunny out right now, although still in the 60s. Mom went to the pool yesterday and even got in the water. She's truly a diehard!
Today mom fed and cleaned about 30 of the 45 minute baby birds who were scattered all over the avian nursery. There were a bunch in the incubator, some cages had many in them, then there were the 2 woodpeckers from a couple of weeks ago, as well as a few crows, and the cage with the jays and bluebirds, who kept escaping. It's a good thing that's all she had to do, since she was busy with them for her whole shift.
This afternoon is pool time, then mom is going to dinner with her sis, since they didn't go yesterday.
I hope you are having a great day, getting some sunshine, warm temps, and of course, lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

TGIF ! After today ? Just 5 days left of school for mom ! I can count that pretty easily . . .

Late night for her last night - 8th grade graduation - and although it won't be terribly late tonight, she probably won't feel too much like playing. Today at 4:00 is her dentist appointment for the permanent crown. I wonder if it'll have diamonds on it ? I know she's excited though - the whole tooth thing has been one icky long road ! !

Outside mom's classroom window, she and the kids watched a couple of ravens yesterday - they were playing leapbird on top of a building ! Back and forth over one another for several minutes !

Have a fun Friday dear friend ! love to you and your family . . . Cookie

  HI Sky
Thanks so much for the good hatchday wishes! I had a great day, got some extra pistachios all chopped up, and a new toy, too.
Today it started out in the 50s like yesterday, but when mom walked the dogs it seemed a lot warmer. No clouds, bright blue sky, and lots of sunshine may have contributed to that. It looks like a pool day, though. Maybe an out to dinner evening, too.
The dogs got their spa afternoon, and the guy didn't call until 6:45. Mom was starting to get worried, but he was running a bit late. They both smell and look good now, at least for a day or two.
There's not much going on otherwise, lots of flowers in bloom outside, and the day lilies (hemerocallis ones) are starting to bud, so we'll be seeing those pretty soon. The orientals and Asiatics are not putting out buds yet, but they won't be far behind. Mom likes them because they smell so good.
I hope you are having a warmer day today, too, and getting lots of good sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

  hi mr. Sky
another chilly morning ! It actually went into the 40's overnight ! ! Mom got up and pulled out an extra blanket ! At least today is supposed to reach 70 - yesterday stayed low to mid 60's . . . As long as the sun is out - it's mom's last recess duty day this year ! After taking the g'nephew to his gym class, mom has to go back to school tonight, so it'll be me and daddy . . . It's 8th grade graduation at the middle school and she will go to present the Drama Club awards . . . then of course she'll have to come and fix my tucking in . . .

One of the things on mom's summer list is new glasses - her distance vision is still fine, but she's having to take her glasses off to see anything up close ! I learned a new game last night . . . Help Mom Find Her Glasses ! ! Me and daddy had fun with it a couple times ! har har har
