Mommy wanted to have some company. I was only 2 months old when she adopted me. She got me from a breeder. We were by ourselves for 10 years. Then 2 years ago for my 10th birthday she decided to give me Baby as a mate. However Baby and I dont get along at all.We puff our feathers at each other when we are close. So now its mommy, Baby and I.

  Hi Oki
mom says this POA for G-mais really complicated. G-pa's son who is his POA apparently changed all G-ma's mail to his address yet he was not POA of G-ma. since mom is legally G-mas POA all these companies want proof that she is POA just so they will forward G-mas bills to mom yet they don't send any forms to tell you want they need as proof. mom now has forms coming out of the wazoo. she has now spent 3 days just talking with G-mas medication pharmacy on how to pay the bills and legally let them know she is POA. she will now make double copies of everything and send one set to the pharmacy and one set to g-mas health insurance and hope that is enough. Gpas son just opened an account for Gma with SS and told mom she can use that to change G-mas address but according to SS that is illegal so mom will then take all the forms she has with her to SS to change g-mas mailing address to her own and hope she doesn't get G-pas son in trouble for doing it the way he did. mom is not going to take any chances and do anything wrong. dad told mom she should start charging g-ma for being POA and for all this work.

last night after being disappointed that the milonga was cancelled we didn't stick around and didn't realize that it was still going on or we would have stayed. mom stayed up to 3:30am watching a foreign german film called labyrinth of lies about a young german attorney prosecutor who brought to trial 18 former SS nazi officers at Auschwitz. it was a true story and quite fascinating to watch. mom was exhausted when she went to bed and was almost asleep when she felt something walking on her leg. she reached down thinking it was a ant but felt nothing. a second later she felt it again but this time on her thigh and after reaching down she felt nothing. finally she pulled the sheet bak turned on the light and found a CENTIPEDE crawling on her leg. mom was too tired to be horrified or else she would have jumped out the window. she grabbed a pillow and bushed it off of her leg and it ran under the bed. mom is hoping Boo Boo the hunter will find it tonight when she is loose in the bedroom. Boo Boo misses nothing.

love Boo Boo

We love it when you get here. It's always nice to hear from you.
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

Hello. Happy Friday from Buffalo.

It's been a busy week here - with Dad in and out. He does make a point to make sure we get "together" time each day.

The house has had visitors, repair men [stopping the new waterfall under the kitchen sink], and lots of chaos. I like the excitement, but pretend it bothers me, so I squawk and scream a lot, to add to the drama.

  Hi Oki
Good to see you back.
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

  Hi Oki
yesterday Cori & I got to go outside for about 1 hour. it was wonderful. not too hot and very sunny. of course we sat on the porch in the shade. mom finished her book, read the paper and then got out the dremmel to shape my Coris beak. Cori didn't even struggle so mom didn't need to burrito her and mom says she now look beautiful. then mom looked at me and i thought "oH no here it comes" and says your next Boobila. she says she will do it on Sunday.

today it hit 90 and dad wouldn't let mom take us outside he said we wouldn't enjoy ourselves in the heat. tun around 5pm a big wind came and blew 1 million branches in the yard. it also rained a little bit but not much.

tonight i shredded 3 egg cartons and mom didn't realize the TV remote was underneath me. i stepped on one of the buttons and turned it off. mom called comcast to ask how to reconnect to the vcd, tv and cable. after speaking to an exrememly annoying robot who just kept saying i don't understand mom finally got a live person who told mom to go to the comcast store and buy a new remote for $150. at this point its 11:30pm so om decided to run to the grocery store since it's the only store open and buy the remote new batteries. the grocery store was pretty empty and mom went to the self checkout and was ringing up the batteries and a woman came up behind mom and stood about 3 inches away from her. if mom had turned her head she would have hit the woman. the woman had about 4 other self checkouts available but for some reason wanted to stand close to mom. this freaked mom out. she turned around to see what the woman wanted and the woman got all defensive and said everything is ok. mom left with her batteries. she got home and still couldn't get the remote to work. she found the remote for the tv and pressed some buttons on that and then pressed some buttons on the comcast remote and now the remote is working. mom is all wound up now. she would like to call comcast back but doesn't want to speak to anymore annoying robots. at least she can watch her movies she recorded on the dvr now.

  Hi Oki
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 Maxine and us, because we know Falco 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

Daddy is all over the tummy-flu, but is seeing doctors on other issues. His blood pressure is very high - and has never been a problem before. Lotsa readings, tests and more doctor visits ahead.

Dad and Uncle JJ went to a special showing of Jacques Demy's French Musical Film:
"THE YOUNG GIRLS OF ROCHEFORT" (1967) on The Big Screen the other night. it was magical. A great turn out for an old French film on a Monday night - 45 in attendance.

  Hi Oki
the tree guy came this morning to inject all the oak trees with the anti oak wilt vaccine. he drilled little holes all around the base of the trees and then stuck a tube in the holes and pumped the medicine in. mom said if the trees come down with the oak wilt you will say the trees were infected before you gave them the injections. he said no your trees are in very good shape and we wouldn't do this if they weren't and would recommend you cut them down. thats $1000 per tree to cut down. mom said won't drilling the holes in the base of the tree allow the ants and bugs to get inside the tree and cause damage and he said bugs and ants only go in wood if its rotted. then a bunch of yellow jackets flew out of one of moms many bird houses and stung the guy.

it started out as a pretty day today and cleared up from yesterdays bad thunderstorms that rolled through. a big branch from one of the oaks fell on top of a azalea bush and smashed it but when mom dragged the branch off the bush it popped up again. its a big branch and mom will have to saw all the branches off of it first before she can drag it away. mom had a doctors appointment around noon and it was one of those appointments where you sit and wait for 2 hours and the doctor sees you for 5 minutes. diagnosis of mom is she is still alive even though she looks like she could star in a zombie movie. as mom was finally leaving the doctors office it suddenly got very dark and another big rain came down saturating mom before she got to the car. the temps dropped down to 60 and with the wind mom was very cold and wet but still alive because the doctor just told her she was.

Mom went to the pool for about an hour yesterday but the sun never came out, so she came home to get ready for the kids' birthday party. It's always fun to see all the cousins together at these events, and yesterday was no exception. They were all crowded into the little above ground pool, and since they're all between 10 and 12, it was a pretty funny crowd. Mom and all the other adults had good conversations, the food was good, and we boys and Maxine got some fruit salad when mom got home.
Today is going to be cloudy and rainy all day, so mom will get some laundry done before she goes to visit Lena later on. She has to find another way to get there, as parts of the parkway are closed for construction, and she doesn't want to get caught in too much traffic. It will be great to see Lena, though.

Sadly, Dad's tummy attacks started again - just when we thought it was done. He can't keep any food down and need to be near the bathroom all the time. This bug is not fun.

Cori finally got her bath bath today. it was very overcast here today. it looked like it was going to rain but it didn't. mom was working outside so she couldnt sit on the porch with us. when mom was done she just washed Cori with the sprayer and then blow dried her. that is her favorite way to bath and get dried anyway. thankfully Cori is not stinky anymore.

later as mom went to walk to the mailbox to collect our mail she was surprised to see a big deer standing on the porch looking in the screen door. mom stopped at looked at the deer. the deer looked at mom for a moment wiggled its ears and then ran off the porch.

HAPPY TGIF DAY

well we haven't gotten outside or Cori had a bath yet and she is starting to get very stinky. it rained all day yesterday so mom cleaned the house sort of. then today it was a pretty day but mom was busy running errands hopefully tomorrow i will get outside and Cori will get that much needed bath.

the 17 year cicadas were suppose to emerge yesterday and haven't seen any so far. then mom thought she saw some lightening bugs because she was seeing all these tiny bright lights moving around close to the ground. then she realized she was seeing the reflection of eyes from a family of baby raccoons. she realized this when they started crying and then climbed a tree. lots of rain and everything outside looks lush.

Well, the best laid plans of mice and men, how aft they go aglae! We thought mom would be out buying flowers today and we wouldn't get online until much later, but last night the air conditioner was blowing hot air. When mom got up today it was 79 downstairs, so you know it was much hotter upstairs. She had called the HVAC guys last night, but of course, they were closed already when it happened. So she called back this morning, and they should send someone out this afternoon. That and the fact that it's really humid and feels like rain any second are what's keeping mom in today. It was raining when she walked the dogs this morning, too.
Mom had a huge (14 boys) group of second graders today for a dinosaur tour. They and their chaperone were interested, answered questions, asked some too, so mom showed them the skull touchables. They were able to identify bird characteristics on T Rex at the end of the tour too! Mom always likes when the group is interested and engaged. She rushed home to make sure she's here when they call and come to fix the AC, so she'll be with us the rest of the day, YAY.

It's another hot, beautiful, sunny day here today. Mom is hoping to get out and water later on, but has to wait awhile. In the basket mom won were 4 gift cards for Subway, Outback, Panera, and Buffalo Wild Wings, so mom will get to have some free meals out.
Dinner at Red Lobster was fun last night. Mom, her sister and brother in law all enjoyed their meals. It's funny, because BIL doesn't like fish or seafood, but that's where his wife wanted to go, so he was game.
This morning mom had a tour with second grade kids in PA animals. They were a bit late getting to the museum, so the tour was shorter. Most of the docents had a second tour so they couldn't run overtime. Mom got a surprise envelope at the museum today, too. She has never received anything from teachers before, unless it was a note addressed to all the docents. Today, though, there was a big brown envelope in her mailbox from a class she took on tour a couple of weeks ago. It was one of those 4th grade in dinosaurs tours, and the kids were from Ohio. The teacher made a huge poster out of oaktag, and the kids all signed it. In the center, she posted a pic of all the kids hugging mom in a group! She also sent another large pic of mom showing them the archaeopteryx head. Her boss at the museum is going to scan that one and post it somewhere or other. It was a great surprise.
Mom and her sis are going flower shopping tomorrow so we might not be online until late in the day. Don't be worried, we're okay, but mom is in planting mode.

Yesterday it was such a beautiful pool day. It was warm, sunny, and the water was wonderful. Mom didn't do any laps, but she did get in the water, which is a step in the right direction. Mom's sister was too tired to go, since they got home after 1 in the morning, but the other people mom knows there did show up, so she was able to chat and read. Those are the main reasons for going, haha.
Today mom will be there again, then later, her daughter will take her out to dinner. Mom's son in law has gone to Ohio to see his mother, and her daughter thought it would be good for the two of them to get together. Mom likes that idea, especially since she doesn't have to cook.

dad was pointing out to mom all the things that need to be weeded. mom says she is quite aware of the weeds and will get it done. it only looks nice for a few months and its great exercise so mom doesn't mind. its very hot right now so we can't sit outside and because of the weeding mom can't sit there with us.

our computer was really bad last night and the ball kept circling and circling and finally mom decided to just unplugged the computer and it took her 20 minutes just to get her computer to go to sleep before she unplugged it. it was pizap who caused all the problems because they told mom to disable her ad block and when mom did it frazzled her computer. they have more ads on pizap than they had on bird channel.

we hear the whippoorwills tonight. not too many but still hear a few mom was afraid they wouldn't come back with all the new housing development going on where they live. hopefully they are ok.

was a good girl tonight until mom said its bedtime and then i made her chase me all over the bedroom. finally after mom said Up and Bedtime for about the 10th time i stopped and let her scoop me us. i need to make sure the old lady gets her exercise every night.

Cori was very bad tonight. mom walked out of the bedroom for 1 minute and when she came back in she couldn't find Cori. she heard paper rattling and saw Cori was in her candy drawer and eating a butterfinger. in one minutes time she managed to eat all the chocolate off of one side of the candy bar. mom was so angry at her.

Congratulations to my brother Willie on getting to 20k votes, and to my friend Chyna for making her 30k votes! The party at the HOF should be in full swing right now. We're heading back there as soon as our blogs are done.
Mom had 2 tours again today. The first was with sixth grade on biomes and climate change. They were great! It was an all girl group, because the teacher had separated them out that way. Mom thinks that's a good idea for 6 and up, because then the girls aren't shy about answering and asking questions. The second group was fourth grade in dinosaurs. One of the chaperones was a former docent! Mom knew her well, so had her help out with the touchable skulls during the tour. Those kids were fantastic! But you knew mom would say that: 4th grade, dinosaurs...
Today after we're finished, mom is going to water the plants, hopefully finish planting all the other stuff Jeff brought over last night, and get the house plants outside for their summer vacation. After that she's ours for the day/night! Tomorrow we have birdicures scheduled, yuck!
I hope you are having that fine weather like we are having here, low 80s, sunny, and beautiful. Have a fun day, get lots of cuddles and scritches, too. Hugs, Peppino

Happy Thursday.
The next few days will be hot and muggy - I don't mind tropical, but Dad is used-to cold Buffalo,
so he suffers.

All is well here.
Uncle Geno stopped over Tuesday afternoon for movie-time. I got to sit with him and play with his beard while he and Dad watched "SPEEDY" (1928) with Harold Lloyd.

  Hi Oki
i got to sit on the porch for about 45 minutes for the first time this year. Dad sat there with me for about 1/2 until mom brought Cori out in her harness and then dad went inside. even though it was my old cage it scared me at first but i adjusted very quickly and even took 2 baths.

love Boo Boo

Yesterday mom planted everything else that was left. She thought she was done, but noticed that the guys who did the lawn weed whacked the Chinese Lanterns that she planted. She called Jeff to complain and he said he had more, and would bring them. Well, he brought three more plants, as well as snow peas, potatoes, tomatoes, apple mint, mustard greens, and cilantro! He and mom planted all that, and by last evening her neck and back were aching. It was a good time to plant, though, when there was help! Jeff also cleared out some of the day lilies so mom could plant the Asiatic lilies she got for Mother's day.
Today mom has a lunch with the pool ladies. I guess they'll all be talking about the pool opening on Saturday. She also has a bunch of errands, like getting more seed and suet which she didn't do yesterday, getting more fruits and veggies for us, and getting a mani/pedi if possible. Bree is coming on Friday to do our birdicures, so that's arranged.
Seems like summer is on the way! I hope you are having a great day. It's beautiful here this morning, so we're hoping it stays this way all day long. Get lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Oki
today we saw a bunny . it was munching happily on our hostas. everyone always blames the deer but the bunnies eat all the low to the ground plants. this bunny was very chubby.

the nursery delivered the bottle brush shrub today . dad spent all day Saturday and this morning digging the hole. it would have taken mom a week to dig the hole. after dad put the shrub in the ground he spent the rest of the afternoon mixing the soil with social mulch and peat moss and carefully tamping it into the ground. the shrub doesn't look like much now but eventually will.

  Hi Oki
tonight Paddy came over to bother me again. he got his leg caught in my dog rope toy i use to hide my treasures in. happily none of my treasures were taken.

for some reason mom was feeling a false sense of security from the marauding deer. they came by last night and browsed on every new plant mom planted. they didn't touch anything else. they even ate the flowers off of the geraniums which they have never touched before. it is kind of funny since none of the neighbors ever plant anything so the deer don't even bother going into their property. our house is like a smorgasbord of gourmet delights for them.

  Hi Oki
Mom planted a lot of what she bought yesterday, but there's still at least a flat to go. She had to stop because she was getting sore legs and back. I hope she can finish today, but it's raining right now. The weather guessers said it would only get to 58 today, so we'll see. The rain is supposed to end by noon, too. Mom is leading 3 tours at the wildlife center today.
If people dropped off goodies for the baby shower last month, they could sign up for a tour of the center. The education folks picked this weekend for all the tours, but they were short handed, so mom volunteered to do some. There are 5 tours today and 5 more tomorrow, so she's helping out today. People can tour where the education animals are, but not the rehab patients. Mom will walk them by the nurseries, though, and they can peek in but they have to stay in the hall.
Hopefully the rain will have ended by then, so mom can show everyone the silver foxes and the raptor mews. They lost Maxina, one of the red tailed hawks, this week, but there are still others out there. Martha is off display, too, as she is raising a foster baby. Still, there are a lot of animals to see.
I hope you are having a great day today, and getting some sunshine, cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Oki
mom and dad have been traveling now for 2 days to various garden centers to find a shrub to replace the blue spruce pine tree dad had cut down last fall. they went to a place about 25 miles south of the city and found a beautiful nursey that had beautiful plants and had perfect shrubs for mom and dad. problem was dad isn't able to dig a hold big enough for some of the big root balls and can't afford to have the nursey deliver and plant so the parents settled for a bottle brush buckeye shrub that is about 3 feet tall but should grow to about 15 feet which is "deer resistant", tolerates shade and wind and grows big fluffily white plumes. while mom was out with dad today the bank called and said moms power of attorney for g-ma has been approved so mom has to go to the bank tomorrow to sign papers so she can open a new checking account for g-ma and start paying her bills and keep track of what the money is being spent on.

HAPPY TGIF DAY

love Boo Boo

  Hi Oki
This morning mom was assigned to do the recovery room. It was the first time in months that she's been in there. The little box turtle with the nail polish on his shell is coming clean; mom could actually see natural scutes on parts of his shell. She scrubbed him for the normal 5 minutes, and put him back in his clean cage. Now that spring is here, there are some different animals in the recovery room. Beside the turtles, there are some injured animals; a female mallard, a little garter snake, an opossum, and a peregrine falcon. Mom needed help to get the falcon out of her cage so she could clean it, but she put her back inside on her own. The opossum has babies in her pouch, so mom was extra careful with her, too. The snake came in with some injuries, and is bandaged, but keeps knocking the bandages loose. The mallard is pretty stressed, but mom managed to clean her cage with her inside it the whole time.
After the center, mom went to a local nursery to pick up some plants. She got some hanging baskets for the porch, and she thinks she has enough to fill all the containers on the patio and in front. There's a woodpecker who is excavating out a tree stump that mom has been using as a plant stand in the front of the house for years. There must have been some tasty tidbits in there, he/she has nearly the whole stump gone. The top is still there, but mom doesn't think she's putting any plants on it this year.
It's a sunny, warm day, in the mid 70s, so should be perfect for planting everything later on, when our blogs are done. I hope you are having a great day, getting some good spring weather, and of course, lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Last night's dinner at the Village Inn was delicious. Mom had wedding soup (which isn't as good as what she makes, but it was okay), and their special, which was crab and shrimp stuffed pangasius. Her sis and brother in law enjoyed their Italian food, as well.
Today it's sunny and close to 70, so it's feeling more like spring. I hope your weather is as nice. Mom may get outside to do a few things, maybe even get the Chinese Lanterns planted today.
This morning mom had 2 tours in Dinosaurs with 4th grade classes. Have we ever mentioned that mom loves dinosaurs and 4th grade kids? (I know, countless times!) Today was such a fun day for mom at the museum, the kids were so sweet. She got interesting questions from them, too.
I hope your day is going well, and you are getting some well deserved attention, with lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino
