I understand that I'm only my mom's dream bird. She was planning on getting me, and got eggcited and created my page but then she was told she couldn't get me. So in the future when mom is older she'll be able to bring me home. She plans on making an aviary for exotic birds and even trying to rescue birds!

Finally got my BOTD on May 12 2013 - Thank you!

  Hi Caly
Howdy, Mikey D here, at the camp readying to head into Widow's Creek. Cappy the tunnel-bird champ and his crew are already heading towards the Ghost Town, digging their tunnel quickly under Black Bart's beak, and moving in to place to rescue Jesse from their felonious grasps.
Ms BB rides back quietly into camp, unseen by the busy birds, it isn't until she speaks they realize she is there, " the tunnel birds are gettin' near the saloon! I seen a big pile of dirt outside of camp. Black Bart still has not shown himself. Some of his gang are still at Widows Creek waiting for the surprise you have planned for them. The group have got the horses away unnoticed and should have them here in the remuda any minute."
"It's time everyone!" Mikey D says loudly enough to be heard by all, "OK drivers, carporals act real casual-like, and don't let them know anythings up! Gun-birds, stay safe, wait for the signal, " Where's that feather-plucked rat?" before you come out shootin' and may God be with us!"
"The horses are stashed safely among the herd of cattle and mules, " Peppino reports to the others.
"Everybirdie knows the part they must play to successfully rescue Jesse and keep us and our cargo safe. Black Bart will regret messing with us again." Silver exclaims, as he and Pepper check their weapons.Pookie says "I'm all ready lets start heading out. I've got my rifle along with a night vision scope attached. I never leave home without it." he climbs up into the wagon. Peepers,Celine and the rest of the Dixie flock are all eager to help dig and be tunnel birds!They all grab a shovel to show Mikey D just how strong and fast they can be! Cappy directs the work, as dirt flies quickly out of the tunnel. Kaji takes a quick look of the work and reports back to the others that the tunnel is nearly finished.
"Let's move'em out!" Mikey D calls as he snaps the reins of his team and pulls them out onto the rough, rutted road. Kiddo spins around and draws his gun to show he is ready for Black Bart before jumping up onto the back of one of the empty wagons, joining the others hidden away in the beds of the Schooners. They move along at a slow walk, no birdie eager for what is to come. In the distance Mikey D spies Widow's Creek and can just make out a small figure of a bird watchin' them.
The Tunnel completed, Cappy waits for a few minutes to regroup his team before them head inside to make their way towards the saloon. They check their guns, and follow into the darkness. They wait to hear the signal shot from Sky at the Widow Creek. Then they will bust through the final inches of dirt and bust into the back of the saloon to save Jesse. Falco and Chyna take a deep breath as they wait. Very bird's nerves are on edge, ready to swing into action......
Mikey D holds up his wing, as they pull carefully into the opening at Widow's Creek..
see ya tomorrow, MIKEY D

  Hi Caly and Dania
The problem has been resolved and once more we are back on-line. Sounds like you had a very busy day helping out your dad and looking after your brother and sister.
I spent the day watching cartoons and relaxing. I wanted to go outside but it was too windy. Maybe today will be more promising.
Momma Deb is busy helping Mikey D with his campaign for BOTM, then it is cage washing time with the power-washer out in the yard. Looks nice and warm, but we will have to check it out shortly.
Time for my snack, but I don't see any thing coming yet. HMMMMM, I don't like waiting much. NUTS? Ok, that'll do. Better go eat.
hugs

Sorry we weren't on yesterday but mom's cold was really bad and dad had to help her all day. Dad's cold is better but he still has it. They are both coughing a lot but guess it shows that their colds are breaking up. Sounds like the recovery is worse than the cold itself.
Today will be clear, with a high of 80 and a low of 54.
Hope your day is good.

  Hi Caly
WELL HOWDYYYY!, Mikey D finally back online. WOW, no net was sure tough. Didn't know how we'd make it much longer. Thankfully we can just pick on up were we left off. We gathered together to plan our rescue of Jesse and a greetin' for Black Bart he'd not soon forget. Lizzie had rustled up a great meal, but nobirdie seem too hungry with so much about to take place. With the wagons unloaded, and Apache, Bon Bon. Angel and Willie standin' guard we set about makin' plans on how to carry out our mission.
" I have scouted out Widow's Creek." Ms BB explained, " There is 1 road through the creek with lots of cover to hide in. That's bad for us cause Black Bart has his gang hid in it. I seen the movements they made back and forth to their horses. " BB paused for emphases "The cover is good for us cause we can sneak up & get the drop on them. Maybe a few birds can sneak in & lead their horses away.?"
"Now, that sounds like a workable idea, " Zippy says eager to get goin' and save Jesse. "I volunteer to go!"
"I will too" Parker adds. " Me too!" Flitzer offers.
"OK, you be careful. Take their horses back around the creek, and into our remuda for safe keepin. But be careful." Mikey D says, patting them each on the shoulder. He knows he's picked the best birds to do that job. Angel-tiel, Pepper and Peppino join the group as they ride out of camp to carry out their mission. Angel & Pepper are happy to help the birdies execute the "surprise" for Black Bart!
"We need to get these wagons hitched and ready." Sky adds looking at Mikey D for direction. "I'll be honored to be in the wagon as I'm a good shot." Pookie steps forward eager to do his share to help. Cookie and Spot get their guns ready, they know the team will out smart that rotten Black Bart and his gang.
"We're ready to do whatever part we need to help rescue Jesse and keep everybirdie, cargo, etc. safe." Pearl and Silver check their weapons and smiling, join the volunteers climbing into the now empty wagons.
Cappy steps up to help Mikey D and Sky lead the attack. "I'm very proficient with a sling shot lol. " he begins to pick out shooters to be in his wagon. Kiddo re-loads and speaks up "I have my six shooter loaded and ready to go!" he hops into the wagon bed ready to fight. Cappy asks "has anybirdie thought of digging a tunnel into the town? ... Cappy explains he is very adept at digging escape tunnels .
"NOW, that's a plan" Mikey D says grinning widely, We need tunnel birds quick! Any volunteers? Wings go up all over camp. "Cappy, you take all the tunnel-birds you need and head into town. Tunnel your way carefully towards the saloon. "Jesse!, we'll be there soon!"
see ya tomorrow, MIKEY D

I hope grandma is okay, too, that her tests show what's up and what can be done.
My mom also helped raise the granddaughters. They are both beautiful young ladies now, and both have graduated college.
Today mom has a class in handling RVS animals, then she is going to the bird warehouse to pick up a few things.
This afternoon she is hoping to get outside, it's supposed to go to 79! It will be a great day to finish the cleanup in the yard and gardens, and catch a few rays while doing it. Tonight mom, Aunt Gin, and her niece Jessica will be here for pizza and a movie. They are renting Birdman. It seems some folks love it and others don't, so I guess it got them all curious.
I hope you are having a great day and getting some sun, spring, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Caly
Hope that medication works for your mom. I also hope that grandma is okay, having side effects in the kidney is not good news. Maybe they can change her meds or something to help her.
11th grade is a good time, mom thinks, and being a senior next year will be even better. Getting into med school is hard no matter where you are, but if mom works at it, we're sure she will make it.
Today mom had her best spring day at the center so far. She got to work in the bunny room and take care of the baby squirrels. Many of the babies have been weaned and are eating either salad (bunnies) or mash (squirrels), so mom got to clean their little cages and prepare baby food for them. She loves the babies.
It's cool and cloudy again today. Mom didn't get any work done outside yesterday because while we were blogging it started to rain. It rained on and off all day. Today was supposed to be better, but it's still pretty humid outside and a bit cool. Mom doesn't like to work out there on cool damp days. I hope you are having some good spring weather and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Not much going on. Mom and dad still don't feel well. Yesterday mom got all the copied papers together and ready to be mailed. Dad will take them to the post office today.
Yesterday afternoon dad tried to lie down for a bit. But it seemed that every five minutes either mom would call him for something or the phone would ring. Poor dad.
Today will be clear, with a high of 84 and a low of 53.
Hope your day was fun.

  Hi Caly
Howdy partners, Mikey D here with our Thursday update. Things had taken a turn for the worse, when SKY and GUS came up with a plan that might just work to help us free Jesse and keep our cargo safe. Black Bart, that low0down dirty bird bird-napped Jesse as he rode a lame mule back to the remuda. That rotten scoundrel has his black, beady eyes fixed on stealin' our cargo, taken our wagons and riding off with our mules and herd. Well, let me be tellin' ya, there ain't no way we's gonna be givin' that low-flyin' thief and his gang of lice-bitten villains anything, and we're gonna be show him in no uncertain terms.
" Here comes a lone rider Boss!" Cappy yells out from his look-out position in a nearby tree. "It's Miss BB". Miss BB gallops into the camp & dismounts. "Boss, I did not see any way we can get into that Saloon in the ghost town without being seen. There are guards on top of the buildings. Mr Sky's plan sounds like the best chance of success. Sky and Gus are right about Black Bart. He & his gang are not that bright. Just downright mean & ornery. I volunteer to be in one of the empty wagons. " she exclaims a growl in her voice.
The group of birds burst out in a loud cheer of triumph. " We'll take on that stealin' bird-nappin' feather-duster of a hooligan." One and two by twos the birds offer their wings in this battle to save Jesse and protect their precious freight of Birdie-treats.
"You know I'm with you!" Sugar yells high-fouring Mikey D."You could put Lizzie in that wagon. I guarantee you that is all you need to do." Kaji says, as Lizzie demonstrates her fire power for everybirdie.
"You're right, she'd toast him, but good. We gotta make sure we get Jesse back first, then she can practice her flame-thrownin' skills" Sky says laughing. The others join in and soon everyone is laughing at the image of Black Bart meeting Miss Lizzie.
"Now, that's fire-power" Flitzer adds." there sure ain't no shortage of volunteers to take on Black Bart. I certainly want to be a member of this mission to rescue Jesse!' Kiddo tells Dory and Polly.
"ok, we're all in agreement. Let's get these wagon's unloaded quick. I need some riders to head out to the remuda and have them bring the herd close in. Miss BB, you, Sky, and a few volunteers ride out to get the Beakerton Agents out on the trail still. We have a big party to plan for and right quickly too!" Mikey D assigns the work and heads to his wagon with Chuey to begin the job of unloading the freight. " We'll need to have gun-birds stay here to guard the hidden cargo." he takes a deep breath. Time is running by fast and they had much to do if their plan was going to work.
It isn't long before everybirdie is gathered together, working to prepare for the surprise that was awaitin' Black Bart and his gang come sundown at Widow's Creek.
see ya tomorrow, MIKEY D

It's Popeye.
Mom's wheelchair is fixed like new. The man at the medical supply shop installed two new axel bolts and two lock nuts. He had to get them so dad paid for the hardware, only $3.00. Dad also went to Staples and had a lot of copies made for the lawyer. Now he has to mail them to him. That will probably be today. Mom and dad's colds seem to be hanging on and on. That's no fun.
Today will be clear, with a high of 85 and a low of 53.
Hope your day is fun.

  Hi Caly
Is your mom a senior this year? What college is she thinking of attending? We wish her luck with the new antibiotic for her face, hope it works and prevents scarring. That's always so awkward, having acne as a teen.
Nothing special going on today, just chilling with mom. She is still working outside to clean up after the winter, but it's too cool to take us out there yet. Maybe Saturday, it's supposed to go to 70 then. Tonight mom will go to dinner with her sister, then clean our cages again. It's a recycling week here, so she'll be cleaning up all the paper we get in the mail on a daily basis too. Tomorrow all the extra newspapers will go to the wildlife center for use there.
I hope you are having a good day, getting some springlike weather, and of course, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Caly
Mikey D here after a day's absence. I must say Mr Sky ( Sky Flock) looks rather handsome with his beak and nails all trim and polished. Then to make it worse he got a huge wooden toy from Chuey's Chewable Bird Toy Creations. Geesh, I had to sit here and tend mules all day in the hot sun whilst I fretted some over how we'd get Jesse back from Black Bart. As I was sittin' astride the lazy-board on the wagon, driving these tired, sweaty mules Ms BB came ridin into our midst.


"I had a short meeting with The Bird yesterday up in the hills. He/she has had a hard time getting away from Black Bart. The Bird said "Black Bart & his gang have Jesse in their camp in the ghost town. They are in the saloon." I hope this intel helps. I am going to scout the ghost town for ways to get in without being seen" with this message she wheeled her steed and galloped off into the distance before I had a chance to ask any questions. The whole message has me troubled now. We have until sundown to figure out a way to rescue Jesse, before we have to deal with Black Bart. There ain't no way, no how we're gonna hand over our wagon train to the likes of that feathered rascal.
Lizzie is thoroughly disgusted." I shoulda toasted Black Bart last time," she thinks. "Now he has Jesse. I know I should just pay attention to my cooking but I sure do have a mind to torch that dastardly demon. " she exhales a puff of smoke and fire in her anger. Kaji looks at her, and grins. Black Bart just might have bitten off more then he can handle this time.
Mikey D calls a break, pulling off into a nice cool grove of cottonwood trees that grow by a shallow river bank. The perfect place for a quick, make-shift camp and rest. Everyone needs a break and somethin' good in their bellies, then they will figure out how to rescue Jesse from that bad varmint Bart. BB was off scouting the Ghost Town, and no doubt would be back soon with the intel they needed to make a quick, safe mission of it. Even the smell of roasting beef and bread wasn't enough to stop that knot of worry in Mikey D's stomach.




Sky and Gus arrive at the camp, and tend their team. Washing up in the river they hurry to find Mikey D. " We've been thinkin' boss, we might have a plan that just might work. You see, Black Bart isn't that bright, just mean and ornery so we were thinkin' that if we were to unload the wagons and deliver them to him at the Widow's Creek. Instead of freight we have gun-birds stowed away inside the wagon beds and when he comes to check them out, we gett'um good. He won't even suspect a thing. We act all afraid and all when we pull into the rendezvous place. We can teach that rat bird a lesson he'll never forget.
Mikey D listens carefully and smiles. It might just work, if everybirdie can play along with the plan. But "Is there enough birds willing to take on Black Bart?" he asks out loud hopeful that they can win this battle.
see ya tomorrow, Mikey D

We are starting to get flowers in bloom here, it's so exciting! Many daffodils have already opened up, the forsythia is in bloom, there are hyacinths in the yard in all different colors, buds on the wiegalia, the lilac is sprouting leaves, it's looking a lot like spring here!
This morning mom had a tour with K kids about animals. They were another Montessori group and were well prepared for their tour. They spent about half the time in Bird Hall, comparing beaks and feet. Mom loved that.
When she got home, her cell phone had lost the charge, so she tucked it into her purse to take to Radio Shack after she dropped off the dogs. They are presently at the groomer having a spa day, and the guy said it would be longer today, so they must be really busy there.
At Radio Shack, the guy told mom her battery was really dead, and put it on a charger. He then checked the cord which mom had remembered to pack, and found out the cord itself is defective. She has to call the manufacturer for a replacement. He was cute, offered to leave her phone on their charger for a couple of hours while she shopped, but mom politely declined and bought another cord to bring home with her. It would be easy to charge it this afternoon there, but what about tomorrow? So, she got the new cord, which he told her she could return in 30 days for a refund! Mom told him she's probably going to keep it as a spare, though.
So, we're finally able to blog while the phone is charging and the dogs are away. I hope you are having a pleasant day and getting some spring weather, lots of cuddles, and of course, your daily scritches. Hugs, Falco

It's Popeye.
Mom and dad saw a movie called Chappie, on free movie day. Mom liked it and laughed but dad said it was dumb. At least it was free and they got popcorn and sodas with it. After the movie mom and dad went looking for lock nuts and wheel bolts for mom's wheelchair. They found a medical supply store that had one. The owner told dad to come back today, when his tech was there and he would install both wheel bolts and lock nuts at no charge. What a nice man!
Dad's still getting over his cold and mom's still sick with hers. Humans sure aren't very healthy.
Today will be clear, with a high of 84 and a low of 66.
Hope your day is fun.

Oh how awful that the power went down for you and I sure hope that it wasn't too cold there so that you didn't freeze!Mom is always worried about us getting a chill and getting sick whenever our power goes off and she waits for a while before she has to start the coal/wood stove to keep us all warm!
Thank you for the wishes for my Nana and skin sis to get well.Mom stayed home with us all day again today but she will be on the run tomorrow helping Nana and helping skin sis with whatever she needs done.She did get some of the vacuuming done downstairs and in our room and our cages done. Its too bad your dad doesn't want you to have another bird,maybe if you show him the breed you're interested in he might go for it!

  Hi Caly
Mom and her high school classmates discussing ethics and euthanasia is really good news. We are happy to hear that they are thoughtful students. As for the chemistry quizzes, we are sure that mom will do well. She is pursuing a medical career? In veterinary medicine, euthanasia always has to be a choice, because if people are like my mom, she won't see her animal in pain if there's nothing to be done. In other words, if the animal is in pain, the doctor can't even offer palliative treatment, then she will request the euthanasia. She feels it's the last kindness to be done for a pet. As far as people, though, that's a tricky issue. We can see both sides of the issue there, not sure what we could say.
Wow, a new bird! That's great news! I can't wait to see what kind of bird mom gets. I bet whatever it is, it will be loved and cherished.
Dinner last night was a lot of fun. They ate at a place mom had never been called the Silk Elephant. It was pretty good Thai food, but she liked the company more. She hasn't seen Jim for awhile, and last time she saw him, he was here for his aunt's funeral, so they didn't get to talk much. Last night everyone got caught up with each other over a good dinner. What could be better? And mom found out he's here for a few more days, so maybe she'll get a chance to go visit him again. He is staying at his sister's house, which isn't too far.
Today mom is hoping to get out into the yard and continue the cleanup. The guys came and mowed yesterday for the first time, so we think spring is officially started now! I hope you are having a fun day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, in the KB until 4/20, Divo & Falco.

  Hi Caly
It's Popeye.
Good to see you, too. Sounds like your mom is keeping busy with school. You can never learn too much.
Dad had to adjust the bearings on mom wheelchair. They were too tight. He also took the brake assemblies off the newer chair and installed them on mom's old chair. So far everything is working great.
Today is free movie day so we will be left alone this afternoon.
Guessing your new bird sounds like fun.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Hi Caly
When your mom gets a fid she will be a very good bird mama we are sure. It sounds like your mom is doing well in school and that is good to get good grades now and go on further later in life too. Today dad and another guy did some more of the boundary lines at the trail. They use the GPS to find the old marks if they can and then remark them again since some are either gone or badly faded. These boundary marks is to know where the property lines actually are and that people wont wander off onto someone else property. This afternoon it warmed up and was so nice and I got to go outside again to enjoy it too. I have chewed off a good portion of my feathers (a bad habit I started when I was young and had a crop infection) so mom is hoping the sun will help me leave the feathers grow again. “Good friends are like stars. You don’t always see them but you know they are there.” Leaving a vote for you.~~Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Caly
It sure sounds like your sweet Momma is so busy with school and making meals for her younger siblings and having to study for that Chemistry test,that sure sounds like a hard thing and Bio,we are all sure that she will pass it with no problems!
Mom stayed home with us all day today and tried working on getting some of these house chores that have been neglected from first Nana's surgery and then skin sis's surgery,Mom hasn't been home in nearly two months now between running from the hospital and rehab for Nana and then helping skin bro take care of her fids.Its a luxury for Mom to have a day off so she can catch up on all her chores.
It was another nice day here,with bright sunshine and the temperatures got as far as 64 but it was still a bit too chilly to go out side not like yesterday was!But who am I to complain,anything is better than snow,ice and freezing cold!And to see the sunshine is a pure pleasure!
Love always,Dixie

We are hoping mom's mom lets her get another bird. Mom would have a hard time without us. She says we are her comic relief. Dad says we are a resource drain, :(
But even dad does enjoy us.

  Hi Caly
I agree with everything you said to Jenny's dad. I also told him what I thought, and if you check out the page, Pearl and Silver also had something to say. There's no reason for hate or bigotry in this or any other place. It's people like that who encourage disrespect and keep us all from getting along. You wrote a very mature note, I hope he pays attention to what you, I and other birds say.
Thanks to Aunt Denise for my derby pic! I'm ready for the Milonga Derby now.
Today mom cleaned and fed the bats again. I know, old story. After she finished with them, she went in to the kitchen area to help label and sort the baby shower donations. All the food items need expiration dates in sharpie so everyone can see them. She dated as many cans and jars as she could, put away paper towels, toilet tissue (used for baby bird nests), latex gloves, and garbage bags as well. There seem to be a lot more donations this year.
Tonight mom will be going to dinner with a friend of hers from NY city. He's in town for a few days, and mom hasn't seen him for about a year now. It will be good to catch up. Mom thinks he retired this year, he taught Italian at the Fashion Institute for many years.
I hope you are having a good day and getting some good weather, as well as lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Caly
It's Popeye.
Alex told me that you had stopped in and ordered flowers.
Glad to hear that you are doing good. We were so sorry to hear about little Luigi. He was a good friend, too. How's your mom doing? Haven't heard much from you guys in a long time.
The work that dad did on mom's wheelchair paid off. She was much more comfortable and the chair was much easier to push. Mom could move around in it better, as well. Now dad has to work on the brakes and wheels. The chair pulls to the left a little bit and one of the brake handles is cracked. These are small jobs that won't take much time.
Yesterday mom and dad went to the Carpenter Center and saw Les Miz. It was a good show but quite long. 3 hours. Then they went to Black Angus so dad could use his birthday coupon. After eating, dad went to the men's room to wash his hands. That's when all the servers came dancing up the isle, clapping and singing the birthday song, with dad's birthday dessert. When the got to the table dad wasn't there. Mom said it was real funny to see the looks on their faces. They came back a few minutes later and dad was there. They gave him a giant fresh baked chocolate chip cookie with ice cream on top.
Today will be clear, with a high of 79 and a low of 51.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,

  Hi Caly
It was nice to see you at the milonga last night though I dont talk much there since its very busy. I didnt realize you were 16 already and driving soon too. The oldest grand will turn 16 in September so you and her are close in age. Last night was another great milonga night and again thanks to all that make this possible for us to have all this fun. Even BC behaved fairly well and no big problems so that was good. This morning mom bought Chi chi’s old cage up on the porch from in the game room. It was a very sunny nice day and mom and dad went to the trail and mom walked her 3 miles and dad biked his 10 miles. By the time they left the two parking lots were full and people were actually waiting on a parking spot. By the time the parronts got home it was very sunny and warm and I got to sit out in the cage in the sun and watch the wild birds. Tomorrows suppose to be even warmer so hoping I get out to enjoy a sunbath again then too. “Make new friends but keep the old, for one is silver and the other gold”.

  Hi Caly
Oh did we ever have lots of fun at the Milonga,Kiddo really outdid himself again this time.He always knows how to make our Milongas a fun place to be!My skin sis will be in the hospital longer than we all thought she would be,Mom is so upset because she is a two and a half hour drive away from here.We can only hope and pray that she keeps working at walking and learning how to get around so she will be released sooner.
It sure sounds like your sweet Momma is as busy as ours is today and its such a beautiful day out there.Mom took me out on the deck and we got to sit out in the sunshine for a little while as Mom waited for the laundry to dry,she even hung her sheets out on the line along with my favorite blanket.Then she brought me in and made a jello dessert and fed us our late afternoon snack and got our cages cleaned for the night,dad helped her to make up the bed and they both took a shower and Mom made dinner,now its time for them to relax and Mom can catch us all up with our visits to everyone!I'm with you I can't wait to see our hummingbirds come back this year!And we hope to see our flowers blossom,they pretty much got flattened by the mountains of snow we've had here all winter.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses,Love always,Dixie

  Hi Caly
It was nice to see you last night at the milonga. I hope you had a good time. One of our problems with the milonga is that there is never time to talk to everyone you want to.
Your mom is wise to drive defensively, that's a good way to prevent being in an accident. I hope she continues to do that.
Well, another good milonga last night! The flowers in the gardens were beautiful, the pond looked lovely, especially after dark, Queen Booboo kept everyone entertained with daquiris and light up shoes, food was great (thanks, Kaji and Lizzie), Chyna sang so well, and thanks to Kiddo for arranging the whole thing! We had a good time.
For anyone who wasn't there, mom locked her keys in the trunk of her car after the baby shower event. They were some of the last people to arrive back at the center, even though they were the closest to the place. They got 3 people throughout the afternoon, but some donations came to the site before the shower, so they had a box full of items to carry back. Also, 2 of the people who came brought a lot of things, and one brought money from her neighbor, too, so it was pretty successful, even though mom sat reading a book most of the afternoon. Twitch had a pretty easy day, he slept most of the day away.
Just for clarification, we want to let you know that baby rehab patients do NOT go to these events. Only our education ambassadors are shown in public, never patients or orphan babies. It would stress them too much.
Today should be uneventful, mom has a day off and doesn't even have any errands. I think she'll be out in the yard starting cleanup, though, but we'll have her the rest of the time. Hope you are having a beautiful spring day, we sure are. I hope also that you are getting lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

It was really so nice to hear from you again also,we really have missed you so much!Oh do we know all about those nasty in considerate drivers out there.We have them here also and they pass you on the wrong side of the road and if they're not blowing your doors off they get in front of you and crawl like we had one today that crawled the whole way and went just where my parronts had to go!Or they come right up your back bumper and nearly drive into your back seat!
We are all wishing your sweet Momma lots of luck and good wishes on her driving.Mom and all of us just know she'll get her license when she's ready.Its not easy to drive in todays world with all the nasty driver and those who want to deal road rage on you!It sure sounds like your sweet Momma is so busy what with trying to get all her studies done and the house chores also!But then we know what that's like for us.My Mom is never home anymore what with taking care of Nana(she fell in February and broke her hip)then skin sis is in the hospital she just had surgery on her hip as she has hip displaysure so Mom will be running between the two of them and helping them,there will be no time for herself for several more months now.I sure do hope that you can get your garage door fixed,that's a bummer.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses,Loving you always and forever,Dixie
