Hi! My name is Cu-Bird -Justice for Ozzi

I am a Timneh African Grey from Newton, NJ.

Pippin, Perfect Little Pippin, Peeps, Cute Bird, Crouton, Junior, Mini Me and Brat Bird, African Princess . My full name is Cuchulain, a mythical Irish warrior is my given name by my former owners. Mom thinks Cu Bird is short for "Cute Bird"-can't argue that!

12 years old   F

Timneh African Grey

Papaya, turkey breast, watermelon, pizza crust.

Anyone's shoulder, I'm a social climber and on that T stand! I also like to snuggle and cuddle with mom.

I hate to be left out of all the fun! My frother Blue--gets real nosey and comes over on my cage. Now that I have moved, I am Elvis's neighbor, so much happier now!

I get to go all over the place with mom. I also get to sit on Aunt Jeanne's shoulder when she visits. I love the formation of the African Delegation here with my fister Miranda and my frother Boomer who moved in with Meiko's flock. It is much fun with culture, history and music. And we get to watch movies with the family at night!

I would rather escape from my cage and hang out on the T stand. I now have mastered the art of getting on the bottom of my cage and chasing the mop when mom does the floor. I was rescues as a boy and on 12/31/13 I laid an egg!.

"I'm NOT Miranda!" "And, I'm definitely NOT a Paterson grey pigeon!".

Mom says everyone is staying at the Sheraton in Bucks County, and doesn't know where dinner will be yet. Some of the parronts live around there, hopefully they will have some good ideas. We think your mom should stay overnight, too, then they can all decide together where to eat. Remember mom's offer, please, if needed.
Mom just got back from an outdoor event at Hartwood Acres, a beautiful part of the Burgh. It's called Hay Days and it stresses sustainable local shopping, energy, use of resources, and lots of green things in our area. Mom brought home a free book given by the library and a seed ball to plant for next year, a flower that attracts bees. 4 volunteers and the education director signed up for the event, so mom and her volunteer partner just did the first 3 hours, and the other 2 volunteers will do the last 2.
Chelsea Possum was a huge hit! Everyone flocked around to see her, get a free zipper pull or bottle opener, depending on whether the visitor was juvenile or adult.Mom even got asked about volunteer opportunities, which is great. All in all, it was a good day, complete with sunny weather.
Tonight is the milonga, and we can't wait to get there. It should be fun with the Rodeo Queen and her 4 Princesses presiding over the mutton busting and barrel racing events. Hope to see you there! Have a great day, whether or not you are attending tonight, though. Hugs, Falco

We know Cookie's mom, Mary is coming for it, maybe she would share a room? Please talk your mom into coming!!! We are all hoping the moms get to meet each other this year. Mom is really hoping Aunt Rose and Nana can come too.
Yesterday mom was able to thread the sewing machine a couple of times to do the 2 duvets, and start on a Christmas project, of all things. She had some things cut out and stacked on the machine since March, so she's going to get that done before she cuts out anything else. I am still taking my meds, fighting every step of the way, but there are only 5 days left, mom said. Of course, she will still use that healing balm even after I finish the oral antibiotics.
Not much else going on today, we get our cages cleaned, probably after mom gets home from dinner with her sister. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
Mom is really at a loss here, because she's riding with Aunt Jane. We didn't know you were that far from Parrot Palooza. Your mom knows the state better than we do, so maybe she can come up with a plan. Mom says she could stay overnight at the hotel, mom will pay for it if your mom can't, then she would be able to meet everybody. I think all the moms want to meet your mom, for sure. I know my mom and Aunt Robin do! Work on her, tell her to call my mom, and make a reservation! Or, at least, find a spot where everyone can meet, and mom will try to talk Aunt Jane into it. Robin is riding with Eva, too, so that's 2 moms without cars.
It's another gorgeous day here in Verona, with the sun shining, no rain in sight, and predictions of 70s today. I went to the vet for my follow up appointment this morning. My leg has no more scab on it, and my side is healing. There are even some new feathers growing in! And I've gained 5 more grams, so I'm back to 130g, like I should be. Mom was really pleased, and so was I. She is now going to make well bird appointments with this vet for Willie and Peppino, so she can get some base lines on them, but probably not until she gets back from Parrot Palooza.
Happy birthday to Jim Henson in memoriam today, we LOVE the muppets! Mom's favorite line from Miss Piggy was, What do you think has more calories, this lighter than air eclair or this 5 pound head of cabbage?
I hope you are having a fantastic day and getting lots of love and sunshine. Hugs, Falco

Happy Fall! Today when mom walked the dogs, she actually wore a hoodie and long jeans! It's the first time since about April that it has happened. She still refused to put on shoes, though, and walked in her sandals.
It is supposed to warm up later in the day and get warmer all week, but we'll believe that when we see it.
Tomorrow is my follow up appointment at the vet. Mom thinks my side looks a little better, but it's still a big gaping wound. It's gonna take awhile to heal, we fear.
Not much going on around here today. I think mom will clean out the sewing room and maybe move summer and winter clothes around. It is about time for that anyway. If there is time, she may go through the closets and find clothes to donate to St. Vincent de Paul up the street. If not, tomorrow is another day.
This is good news for us, though, we will have mom all day long! Hope you are having a great day too. Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
I hope mom is feeling better today. My leg got hurt in July, you might remember mom panicking when she found out her avian guy was only there Mon. and Tues nights, and in another location, far far away. Anyway, that part is nearly healed, there is only a tiny scab there. But mom thinks I was secretly picking at my side while the leg was healing, because I have a rather large hole in my skin! The vet didn't want to try to pull it together to stitch it, so mom is putting ointment on it daily, and I'm on antibiotics for a couple of weeks.
Now, let's talk Parrot Palooza. We understand your mom doesn't want to come and spend money there, but it's a big chance to meet a bunch of bird parronts from BC! There will be lots there, and some she hasn't met, like Aunt Jane from MI, Aunt Robin and Aunt Eva from NC, and of course, my mom. So if she doesn't want to come, maybe we'll invade your house! Maybe she could meet everyone for dinner or lunch or something???
The double wedding yesterday was sure beautiful. We all wish the 2 happy couples long life and happiness. We were sorry to have to be silent during the reception, but mom had plans for the evening.
It was her first Night at the Races, a fundraiser for the pool where she goes in the summer. She always bought a horse and jockey for the event, but never went. She never won, either, although her sister has won at least $40 every year! Last night, she and her sister and brother in law went to the dinner and stayed for the races. Guess what? Mom's horse won in its race! Mom won $40, and since she bet on it, she won another $4. (Of course, she spent more than that during the course of the evening.) It sure was fun winning something, though!
Today it's kind of cloudy and it's supposed to be cooler, although when mom walked the dogs, it was sure humid and close. I hope you are having a great day today, getting lots of Sunday love, and having a pleasant weather day as well. Hugs, Falco

Today when mom tried to sign on to her Verizon account, she couldn't do it. It kept cycling onto the intro page and wouldn't let her proceed. She tried changing her password, too, but that didn't work either. Anyway, she called Verizon and is waiting for a call back. But it took valuable time, since today is my vet appointment.
Yesterday mom took me to the center and the staff up there found much more wrong with my leg! They advised mom to call the vet and get me there, so that's what we're doing today. The appointment is at 1:30 and mom is just feeling horrid about not knowing it was so bad.
I haven't been spending time with her like I used to, but mom thought I just was upset about my wing clip. Instead, now she thinks I've been in pain for over 2 months, and she is kicking herself for not doing something sooner.
We are hoping they can do something for my leg, though.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of sunshine and love. Hugs, Falco

Oh no, mom was so looking forward to meeting your mom. Maybe they can get together for dinner or something? Mom and Aunt Jane will be there for 4 days. Let us know, or we will try to reach your mom when she gets there.
Your mom and dad will love the Parrot cruise!
Mom had a meeting today at the museum, so we are just getting online now. It was mostly about teaching new docents the rest of the halls. Mom had 2 years of training, but the docents who were hired in the spring only had training either in Dinosaur hall or in 3 cultures. Now they are worried that the new folks can't do tours in the rest of the museum. Anyway mom signed on to teach ecosystems, biomes, and animal adaptations, as well as possibly PA natural history. Hope they can use her expertise in some way or other.
Bree came by to do our birdicures yesterday and while she and mom were talking, mom mentioned that I am not as active with her as I used to be, and that I haven't really wanted a bath for awhile either. Bree looked at my injured leg and she thinks I might still have a fractured fibula, the little bone in the leg. So mom called Jill today to see if she can look at me and give her opinion, and maybe some vet wrap too.
I hope you are having a good day today, getting a lot of love and sunshine. Hugs, Falco

I hope you have forgiven the parronts for leaving you to have breakfast and run errands. They are usually attentive, so once or twice a year, it's okay for them to do something different.
Mom expected to have a nice easy day today, maybe clean the fountain, do the front porch while the cleaning lady was doing the house. Instead, she took the bows she's been making back to the wildlife center. They are doing an event Sunday that will feature baskets for raffle, and Paw Prints is coming up soon, so they needed an abundance of bows for those raffle baskets, too. Anyway, she's been making bows for about a week and finished using all the ribbons last night. This morning she took them to get them out of the house but when she got there, she discovered the center was very short handed today. So mom, being mom, came home, changed into clothes she wears to clean in, and went back to the center where she cleaned the avian nursery and in between, took phone calls and admitted a squirrel and an owl for treatment. The avian nursery was really cool today, there are cedar waxwings, oven birds, and a Swainson's thrush in there with the common birds we usually see around here, robins, cowbirds, doves, etc.
So it's after 12, maybe the fountain will get done today, maybe not. Tomorrow mom has her final post op with her eye doctor, who is going to give her a prescription for new glasses, she hopes. If that happens, we probably won't blog until late in the day, if at all. So if you don't hear from me, don't worry. I hope you are having a great day today, with pleasant weather and lots of love coming your way. Hugs, Falco

Haha, you are so funny! That was a good story! Mom has to text Bree to see when she can come for our birdicures this week, as she totally forgot last week.
Today Lena is coming over to visit with mom, and I think mom will take her to lunch. Then mom has a few errands, before coming home to clean our cages and pick up clutter. Tomorrow is our cleaning lady's day here, and mom doesn't like for her to spend her time cleaning up the clutter in the house. It's funny to me, cleaning before the cleaning woman gets here!
I hope you are having a fun day, getting lots of sunshine and scritches. Hugs, Falco

I don't like the pedicure, but Willie takes the award for Drama King, he starts yelling before he even gets his first nail clipped!
Mom noticed water bubbling up from under a planter in the front yard yesterday. She didn't think much of it, because it's been raining so much, but today it's still bubbling water out and it looks like a swamp in our front yard. There is actually standing water there, which has never happened before. Well, mom called the water company this morning, and they had a guy here in 15 minutes. He took samples of the water where it's bubbling out. He thinks that, due to where the spot is, it might be the result of a storm drain backing up or just draining slowly. With all the rain we've had this summer, there could be a lot of debris in the storm drains, and the water is pooling here, since it's a low spot. If it's not that, they will send someone out with more equipment to see if it's a leaky pipe. How do they do that? They test the sample he took to see if it's treated water or not. I suspect mom is going to learn a lot about the water company soon.
I hope you are having a nice day where you are. It's supposed to rain and maybe storm here today. When mom walked the dogs, it was so humid it was hard to breathe. Hopefully having rain will drop the dew point to more comfortable levels. Get lots of cuddles today if you can. Hugs, Falco

I will really miss you at the milonga tonight, I'm running a ring toss booth, and am hoping to get lots of suckers, oops, customers, to give it a try. We got some neat prizes, too. I love the face painting this year again, Aunt Denise does such a good job with it!
It sounds like you will still be eating at 8 o'clock with all that food available!
Mom is ready to spend the last 3 days at the pool if the weather cooperates, then it's back to the old grind for her. She can't wait to get the okay to wear goggles so she can swim laps again.
We are ready for the milonga tonight! All of us are participating in some way, and we hope everyone stops by the ring toss booth, watches the pig races, and giggles at the pie eating contest. Hugs, Falco

Girlfriend, be careful with that dog, sniffing your tailfeathers is not a good idea, it means the dog is waaaay too close. You and Miranda are a hoot, though! And good for Cookie, chasing the dog away.
Happy Birthday to Mother Theresa, may she rest in sainted peace. She sure brought about change in her ministry.
Today mom had a lot of errands to run before blogging, and she still isn't really done. She took the dogs to the new groomer, and they look and smell divine now! She also had to get more blankets and stuffed animals for the squirrels, pick up some wild bird seeds, go to the grocery and buy fresh veggies and fruits for us. By the time she got that done, it was time to feed the squirrel babies, so she came home and did that, then the groomer called, so she went to pick up the girls.
Later she is going to the pool, then hoping to find the vitamins she needs for her eyes, going to Aunt Gin's house to make a copy of her property assessment for the local tax office. These folks are willing enough to send out statements when they get their assessments from the county, but not willing to accept that the house has been reassessed, even though we know the county sent them a statement. They want mom to send a statement too, so she can get a refund. Whatever, though, she'll do it.
We may be in lockdown longer than normal today, but we know she'll be back to clean cages and spend at least a little time with us tonight. Hope you are having a good day, getting lots of sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

You and Miranda are so funny! I wouldn't dream of sticking my beak in mom's nose, but don't hesitate to groom her ear. She giggles when I put my beak in there, but she really is not comfortable with it. I also do a great job preening her hair.
Mom talked to Aunt Robin last night and she seems to be doing a bit better. She has gone to the Aquatic center for some water therapy, which seems to be helping, and hopefully her meds will kick in soon and she'll be back here with SamIAm.
Not much going on here today. It's supposed to rain off and on all day long both today and tomorrow and be gorgeous on Monday, when the pool is closed until 3:30. That's what always happens, mom says.
Mom is looking for a new groomer because the one she was using has her phone shut off, so we think she's no longer in business. Hope she finds one soon, Polly is looking shaggy and Daisy is finding more places to hold her and drag her around like a pull toy.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of love and some sunshine as well. Hugs, Falco

Weren't you sweet, trying to feed mom? Haha, bet she loved that!
Not much new here, mom did get to the pool yesterday and it turned into a gorgeous day by noon. Today looks good, too. Later she will go to dinner with her sister, then come home and clean cages for us. Tomorrow morning is her second follow up appointment with the eye doc, then back to the center for her shift.
Mom got an email from SamIAm's mom, Aunt Robin. Her lupus and rheumatoid arthritis have both flared up at once, not long after she underwent oral surgery. She had to quit taking one of her drugs for the surgery, and is now able to take it again, but it has to build up in her system to work. Anyway she's at home with a fever, thinking about BC and how much she misses everyone. Sam misses his birdie friends, too. We hope to see them back soon, but in the meantime, please keep Aunt Robin in your prayers.

I'm sorry to hear that dad is having health issues. I hope he's up and about really soon. We will pray for his good health to return.
Today is dark and gloomy, and it was pouring rain when mom walked the girls this morning. Now it seems to be rain free, but who knows how long that will last? So, it must mean it's a laundry catch up day for us here. So many things to wash, and all those trips up and down the stairs will provide good exercise for mom today. We are keeping Kiddo's mom and dad in our prayers, as well as Sweetpepper's Grandpa. We hope all goes well for each of them and they all heal successfully.

What's going on? How are you? I miss talking to you.
This is the last week for the pool to be open its regular hours. Next week all the guards have to go back to school, so the pool won't open until 3:30.
Today when mom went to the center, she had to work the reception desk because of the surgery. She prefers not to get anything near her eyes yet, until at least the second follow up visit to the eye doc this coming Friday. She also folded lots of towels and blankets, and did some of the dishes until her shift was up. It's more fun working with the animals, but every little bit helps up there.
Tonight mom is going to see a movie (100 step journey, maybe?) and have dinner with Aunt Ginny. This is a very late birthday gift for Gin, her birthday is in June. She just couldn't pick a movie til now. Anyway that's mom's plan for the evening, but we'll be in lockdown.

  Hi pretty Cu-Bird & Miranda, from Ms LaLo
We are having a warmer day but slightly overcast, not a big deal, but more humid as well! Dad said the Bird Club meeting went very well, lots of member participation and tons of beautiful parrots, not all of which were well mannered! As you all know, we love our Sundays, to us they represent peace, worship, and family friendship, we already knew that, but it was Angel Christy who really taught us the meaning of this special day, she knew! Have a great day and give our love to all in your peaceful Sunday home, see ya tomorrow...

Much love from Jenny, & the Dallas family

  Hi CuBird
Sorry about the hot sauce loss, heehee. Mom likes that stuff, too. She just found sriracha at Trader Joe's, so you can bet she bought a bottle! As for you stepping up and not nipping, don't let him get too comfortable about that, we have to keep the humans on their toes, right?
It is a gorgeous day today! I think it's the best one of the week. Tomorrow we're supposed to get thunderstorms again. Usually by this time in July the grass is brown and dry, but everyone has green grass still. Mom has some grocery shopping to do, but it can wait. She needs to buy fresh fruits and veggies, but we have enough to tide us over for a few days. Today is definitely a pool day, and tonight mom and her sister will go to a Japanese restaurant for dinner. Mom bought a groupon a few weeks ago and wants to use it before it expires. Tonight will also be cage cleaning night, so we all have to be prepared to fix up our homes as soon as mom is done destroying them.
I hope you are having a bright and beautiful sunny day and getting lots of attention that you deserve. Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
Mom loves that spicy food, the spicier the better! She will pass on those suggestions to Lena.
Last night mom did an event at a local park with Irwin the porcupine. It was a lot of fun! The kids were going on a night hike in the park after the program, so they had to make it last until dark. She also told the education director she is not interested in that job she interviewed for last week, give it to the young woman who is still in the running for it. Mom told her she's still glad to help out, she just doesn't want a job.
Today mom cleaned after 11 skunks, 2 ground hogs, all 3 education hawks, 5 screech owls, and 3 fledgling red tailed hawks. It was a busy morning. She also found out that Bree can stay here with us when mom goes to Parrot Palooza in the fall! She was all excited to know that we'll be well cared for and she won't have to board us.
Hope you are having a good day today and getting some warm weather, sunshine, and hugs. Here's one from me, too. Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
Thanks, mom will look for it on Amazon. She just ordered books from them this morning!
Mom just found out Anna won't be able to watch us in October, so she is going to try for interns or one of the staff from the wildlife center to come stay with us while she's gone. If not, she'll have to board us, because she's not gonna miss Parrot Palooza!
I was so surprised today when mom did NOT grab me out of my cage with a towel. I guess she was right when she said yesterday was my last day for meds. If I leave my leg alone, she won't even put the ointment on it.
Last night mom got her hair cut, and more importantly, got to see Lena before she and her boyfriend go off to the west. They are going to Las Vegas for a couple of days, then off to Lake Havasu, the Grand Canyon, and Sedona. It should be a fun, active trip for both of them.
Today is going to be a good pool day, so mom will head over there in a while. Last night on the way home, she stopped for General Tso's chicken at a local Chinese restaurant. They gave her enough to feed a family! So, that's what's for dinner tonight again. Maybe the boys and Maxine will get a taste of the chicken. I might have a bit of rice.
I hope you are having a good summer day with sun and flowers and love. Hugs, Falco

That movie sounds good, is it on demand? Mom will have to try to find it, bet we'd all love it. So, were you all very good for the birdicures? We are all different here, with Willie being the big drama king. My leg is nearly healed, and I only have one more day for the antibiotics, mom says. I can't wait to be done.
We're sending a big thanks to Aunt Rose for all of our summer pics, they are all so well done.
We're having some pretty nasty rain and thunderstorms here, have been since Sunday. Mom says it's okay, though, because so far she has managed to walk the dogs between showers, and doesn't mind reading with and to us in the house when it's bad outside. This morning she fed the outdoor birds and watered the plants on the porch right before the rains came. I hope you are having better weather today and getting sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

Thanks, we are hopeful everything checks out with your mom as well. She is welcome to the pool as long as she gets here before Labor day, heehee.
A quick fly by today and c/p time! Mom has a meeting this morning, then the pool, then a trip to Oakland to see her friend's new apartment, and finally dinner and home. We'll be in lock down today, but will have mom's attention tonight. Hope you are having a spectacular day of sun and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
Mom got the okay for her cataract removal, the wet macular degeneration is under control, no new bleeding. She has an appointment at the end of the month with the surgeon, so we think it will be done in August.
It has been pretty dry here. There have been lots of showers and scattered thundershowers in the Pittsburgh area for the past week, but they seem to be bypassing us. It rained the other day for about 3 minutes, and that's all. Mom is watering all the pots daily, and needs to get the hose out to soak the ground a little.
Tonight mom is working an evening event in Dinosaur hall, which should be fun. She likes doing evening events, and it is only scheduled til 7:30, so she should make it home before dark. We will have her attention and cage cleaning skills when she gets back. It should be a pool day, too.
I am still fighting mom on the meds and limping, but each day my leg looks a bit better. Her hands are beginning to look shredded, though. Hahaha!
I hope you are having a great day and getting sun and love. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Cu-b sweetie, from Ms LaLo
...yeah, Jenny Lynn always gets more bones and treats than the rest of us, those Amazon parrots are so persuasive, and I think she is dad's alpha bird now that Christy has passed! Thanks for coming to my page, I don't get many visitors it seems! Today will be a warm and humid one for us and this is also busy Monday, some cleaning and a few errands to run for dad, but not to much outside work! Yesterday dad spent much of the day stripping bark off of clean new Silver Maple branches to make perches, they are perfect and easy to work with! I hope you are all having a great start to your new week, and give my love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

Love from Ms LaLo, & the Dallas family

PS~My love to the Stark flock & family

  Hi CuBird
I chewed at the bandage so much last night that my leg was bloody again this morning. Mom cut off the remaining bandage, cleaned me up as well as I would let her, put ointment on, then gave me my meds. I am really mad at her!
At the center mom was in the avian nursery this morning. What a large variety of birds in there today! Besides pigeons and doves, there were crows, screech owlets, sparrows, finches, ducklings, cardinals, blue jays, woodpeckers, sapsuckers, and a few others. There was also a wood turtle, heehee. They didn't have room anywhere else to put her.
I hope you are having a happy Fourth of July celebrations today. Mom is going to her niece's house, then coming back here well before dark to take care of us and give us all scritches, even me if I let her. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
Mom had a pretty hard day yesterday, thinking of Gizzy all day long. Then today when she got up I scared the life out of her! When she came downstairs, I was hanging onto the side of my cage, which I never do. Mom took out my dishes and noticed blood in all of them, on the rings that hold them and on the cage bars. She thought I had thrown up the blood. She went into panic mode and tried to call the avian vet. It was too early in the day of course, so she got everyone their food and water, fed the dogs, then called back. She discovered her vet has left the practice, but they gave her his phone number. When she called she got a machine, so she made two more calls and finally got me in to see a person at VCA North Hills. She had to get me into the wingabago and leave immediately, as that's quite a trek. While she was doing that, she noticed blood on my leg, and it turned out that was where it all came from. Somehow overnight I had cut my leg and was a bloody mess. Anyway that got her out of panic mode and into normal mom mode. We saw the vet, got 3 meds, I got a shot of Baytril, and now mom has to put ointment on it twice a day, give me metacam and an antibiotic for a few days, and I should be back to normal. What a relief! I was very good for the vet, which made mom proud of me. Hope you are having a good day and getting lots of scritches. Hugs, Falco

Hahaha, you are so snarky about Miranda, what has she ever done to you? She seems like a great girl!
Next Monday mom goes to see if the shots did any good for her eye. She's hoping for a positive outcome so she can get the other cataract out.
We're getting a new neighbor. The house next door has been empty for over a year, and now a nice young man is moving in. His parents bought the house, and they're fixing it up for him. Mom met all 3 of them when she was walking the dogs this morning. It will be nice to have a new neighbor.
Mom thinks it's going to rain later today. It's very humid out there, and with the heat, it seems a perfect recipe for a storm. Not much new, mom got fresh fruits and veggies last night for us, including corn on the cob. We all eat that now! Hope you are having a good day and getting lots of sunshine and kisses. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Cu-Bird & Miranda, from Ms LaLo & Jenny
...we had a power outage on the phone, cable, & TV network or over 2 hours, but it is up and working at least for now! No rain for a change, but our temps soar to 88 degrees later today, sticky yucky! We are planning our usual inside play day, and prep some boxes of toys for shipment tomorrow! Most likely no yard work or garage work, it is hard for dad to breathe when it gets this hot and humid! Have a nice day and give my love to all in your sweet home, see ya tomorrow...

  Hi CuBird
Mom took a ton of pics at the center, but only 5 turned out, so the skunk and possum are on my page, the baby songbirds are on Willie's, and the hawk babies are on Peppino's.
Mom's friend from Germany is coming over today to pick up his stuff that he left here, and raid mom's kitchen for some utensils, flatware, measuring cups, etc. I think he will visit the linen closet for towels and sheets as well. He has bought a condo here in Pittsburgh, mom can't figure out why. He's only here for about 6 weeks a year! He says it makes him feel like he belongs with his own place, that he's not a poor church mouse looking for places to stay. Whatever is fine with mom. She is also waiting for the delivery of a new mattress today, and hopes they come long before it's time to go to the pool. She told the guy she has an appointment at 12, so we're hoping he makes it.
I hope you are having a great day, filled with sunshine, warm breezes, and of course, cuddles. Hugs, Falco
