T'ealc was in that group of 5 parrots rescued from a pet store basement. The pet store owner told mom that all the conures could live together in the really big cage mom had. That's when Darling snuggled up to Carter and T'ealc snuggled up to Baldrick, so I guess there is divorce in the conure world. PS-Baldrick got the bigger property settlement. 7 years later, Baldrick would leave Teal'c (April 2013) and move in with Charlie Daniels..

Hands in the cage..."ATTACK!- !" Any hands at all...BITE!

Right now I pretty much hate her! I have been flying at her arms and head trying to bite her. The testosterone is settling down and so am I and I am adjusting to single life. 10-14-13 I guess living alone isn't sooo bad. I like to make smacking kissing sound to mom.

T'ealc makes kissing noises when you approach his cage, he takes a bath in all the drinking water cups in his cage! Lately, he has an obsession to hang out on Graceland, Elvis's cage.

  Hi Teal'c
Having a pretty nice day here today, even though Mom left this morning to get her nails done. She also stopped by the eye doc's to talk to them about the stupid secondary insurance thinking Medicare should be paying the bills from when my mom's eyes were messed up, but Mom is only on Medicare for overnight stays in the hospital. Doc was very cool about it, because they have had the problem before with other patients. They will bill Medicare, be declined and then the insurance co will have to pay. She also spent about 20 minutes on the phone with our primary insurance about the fact they are not covering our prescriptions properly. The lady finally admitted it and ordered an audit. Insurance stinks! But you have to have it.

Now for the eggciting news. As you may remember when Mom first got my new and larger outside carrier for my sunbaths I wanted nothing to do with it. Then I finally allowed Mom to put me in it, and once I was there I was fine. Today I climbed into it myself for the first time with no griping all ready for my sunbath! Good thing it was already warm outside. Mom took nutriberries out with us, because she was so pleased with me and kept telling me what a good boy I am. Of course I am a good boy. That's what I keep telling her, silly lady.

  Hi Teal'c
Well, it's a very quiet day around here, and I have to say I don't mind. Mom had no errands to do, and she is spending most of her day with me. However that also means she has no news for me to report. Hopefully this is one of those no news is good news.

Hope everybirdy is warming up and having a beautiful Spring day like I am. Hoping I will have more news to share tomorrow.

  Hi Teal'c
I tried my best to feed my mom yesterday, but she realized what I was up to at the last second and turned her head. So although I was only able to leave my gift of food on her cheek, I got darned close!

We had a nice sunbath today, but Mom had to sit in the shade the whole time. Our high today was 86, and I think we were pretty close to that while we were out there. I like the heat, but Mom just can't handle it, especially when she just came from the gym and is already hot and sweaty.

After my mom finishes my blogging we are going to share one of her lo cal lunches. I am hoping for mac and cheese, but butternut squash ravioli would do just as well. Mom says it will be whatever is on top of the stack in the freezer. Don't you think I should get to choose?

  Hi Teal'c
Well, it is much cooler here today with a high of only 68, but in the sun at 2 PM it was not bad at all. Mom even sat in the sun, although she had on long pants and sleeves. It is supposed to only go to 66 tomorrow, so I might not get outside at all. However we are back in the 80s by Monday, so it will be sunbath time again!

After Mom and Dad went grocery shopping to get me sugar snap peas (OK, so they bought some other stuff too, but we know what the important item was), they went to this little hole in the wall fast food place called Chicken Bowl for lunch. They get the Hot and Spicy Garlic chicken bowl which also has veggies and rice in it. Mom always shares hers with me, and since we only eat half of it that will be tomorrow's lunch too. I love the sauce on the chicken, so I chew on a piece till the sauce is gone then drop it. Mom always tries to get me to eat some of the cabbage or broccoli, but that just isn't happening.

  Hi Teal'c
Well, Mom did insist on taking a shower before she joined me today. The trainer really worked her, then she danced her tail feathers off (funny, I don't remember her ever having any...) in zumba. We did get outside for a sunbath as soon as she was all cleaned up though, and it was a very nice one. A little cooler today, which was good since it was an afternoon session.

Then Mom and I shared one of my favorite of her frozen lunches (they're not frozen when we eat them, of course). This one has lima beans in it, which is how my mom discovered how much I love them. She lets me have them all, even though she likes them too.

And Mom called the insurance company today about their denying her first ablation because they say it was "investigative". Now that is just silly, because they took out abnormal tissue to prevent cancer, and they have already paid #2 and #3. Amazingly she got a very nice and very helpful lady on the phone, and they went through the "Grievance Process" step by step together. (She agreed with Mom that it didn't make sense.) So now it can take up to 30 days for that to process, but this nice person said she would keep an eye on it and keep my mom posted. Maybe this will finally get taken care of.

Oh, and good news at the GI doc's visit yesterday. He is pretty sure he got it all this time, and no more ablations. She has to get an endoscopy and biopsy in June to be sure, but after the ablations an endoscopy is like a trip to Disneyland!

  Hi Teal'c
Well, Mom likes Portobellos, so she was watching for them with no plans to share. She decided the only mushrooms in that lunch were on the outside of the box!

10AM sunbath again today, and once again Mom moved to the shade after a few minutes. She would like to get some sun like me, but then there is the whole cancer thing. How can something that is so healthy for us be so bad for our humans?

Mom goes to see the her massage therapist for her shoulders and back this afternoon, and then after a short visit back home with me she will be off to see her GI doc for the follow up on her ablation. She is also taking that letter from the insurance company about the first ablation being "investigative" and therefore not covered. Sure hope he doesn't want to do another one, because so far out of the three the insurance company apparently is only covering one. Mom sure doesn't have thousands of dollars to send off to the hospital!

No gym time today though, so I get Mom as soon as she gets home from the doc's office. Hopefully she won't get stuck in his waiting room for an hour like she has before. If it goes that long, she will just tell them she is fine and doesn't need a follow up. Enough is enough. She needs to get home to me (and maybe Dad... maybe!)

  Hi Teal'c
Hey, I love peanut butter toast. And have you ever had peanut butter and banana? It's killer. Our lunch today was a new one of Mom's lo cal lunches, and it will not be tried again: Portobello Beef. Sounds tasty, right? Well, I liked the roasted potatoes, but I resented Mom trying to trick me into eating some broccoli. And we both agreed the beef was pretty tasteless. Oh well, I was happy with my taters.

Oh, and Dad has totally picked up on your dad's "wit". It is Kiddo tastes like Conure. What a dweeb!

I have had a very nice day so far. Really warm here again today with a high of 88. Mom checked the temp at 9:30 AM, and it was already 75, so she came right in and got me settled and ready to go outside by 10. We stayed extra long, because it was so pretty out and looks like tomorrow is more of the same.

Mom goes to the gym this afternoon at 4, and doesn't get back till 6:15 or so, so this is the night I get her all sweaty and she stays that way right up to my bed time. I don't mind at all, but she says it's a bit uncomfortable. She doesn't want to short me on my evening mommy time though. With the big bush shading my window, it is dark in my room by 7:30, and I insist on going to bed then. Last night she was taking too long, and I snuggled under the towel over her feet (to stop me from chewing her slippers), and I went to sleep there. She was tempted to let me stay there, but she was worried I would wake up in the middle of the night and get scared. So into my cage I went, and that was fine with me.

  Hi Teal'c
Mom told my dad about the whole "tastes like Conure" bit, and now he is using it in reference to yours truly. She needs to learn to keep her trap shut!

Mom and I shared a full size roast beef and Swiss cheese wrap today, and I got even more than usual. I have decided I really like tortillas, and I even ate a little of the lettuce. Mom was really pleased about that.

We got out early for my sunbath today at 10AM, since it is supposed to hit 89 here. Our friend with the two nice doggies who don't ever bark came by, and since I hadn't seen them in ages I gave them a nice loud squawk hello. I didn't even mind when she and Mom chatted, especially when it was so she could tell Mom about feeding wild birds.

Then Mom took off for the ortho doc's appt, and he declared her "full range of motion and good strength". She mentioned that the shoulder still aches some, mostly in bed, and he said that takes about a year to go away! At least it is nothing to worry about.

Now if she can just get the esophageal stuff cleared with the insurance jerks, when she does her follow up with the GI doc on Thursday. That's right, the insurance company is balking again, and this is still the ablation from last November although they paid for January already! Idiots!!!

  Hi Teal'c
I didn't realize that you are fully flighted. Me too, but I am afraid I am not nearly as well behaved as you are. I stay on Mom's shoulder while she is walking around, but if she sits down at the puter I am off to try and chew on the antique dresser before long. That's when I get put back in my room.

Another greyt sunbath today with a high of 88, and I think we were out there just after it started to cool down a bit. Mom still had to wear shorts and a tank top, and then she sat in the shade. I love the sun though, and the two (count 'em, two!!) nutriberries didn't hurt either.

Mom went to the gym this morning, of course, and her trainer did what she called "minutes". This involved Mom having to do each exercise continuously for a minute. They were basics, but after a minute anything gets tiring. The trainer said it was the best work out for the day before Mom's final (hopefully) visit to the ortho doc tomorrow. After that and then zumba, Mom was pretty darned sweaty. She came home and had a carefree shower with her new mat. She felt totally safe and slip free!

I finally got to share Mom's Subway sandwich with her. She can only eat one half at a time, so the other half finally came out today for our lunch. And then for dinner we are having a mini-wrap of roast beef and Swiss cheese. I loved the chicky sandwich, and I already know I love the wraps. This is definitely a good food day for yours truly!

  Hi Teal'c
Dad has told Mom over and over that PayPal and the bank and such do not ever send you an email asking you to reply. So she logged in separately to PayPal, got their security email address and forwarded it to them. Sure enough!!

I got my sunbath today! It was really warm out, and so even though Mom sat in partial shade, she had to move to full shade after a few minutes. I on the other hand was preening the entire time...well, except for while I was eating my nutriberry.

Dad mowed the lawn today, and that really infuriates me that he is in my yard. I sat in the window and squawked and squawked, but unfortunately he couldn't hear me over the mower. The rain we got over the last couple of weeks really greened up the lawn even though it was less than 1" total. Our front yard is actually green now!!

Mom finally made it to Wally World and picked up a rubber bath mat for the tub. Now she can take showers without holding on to the walls for fear she will slip. That fall the other day really made her paranoid, but this is the deluxe large size mat and covers nearly the entire bottom of the tub. No more slipping and falling for Mom.

Still too chilly here for sunbaths. In fact, it is even cooler by a few degrees than yesterday. The worst part is that it is so windy that it is howling by the windows, and I don't like that. The best part is that we got a tiny bit more rain last night. Another little drink for the roses.

Mom got a phishing email from somebody trying to steal her PayPal info, but she wasn't fooled and forwarded it to PayPal's security dept. They confirmed it was a phony and are going after them. Meanwhile Mom just deleted it.....twice.

I almost managed to get my beak on one of Mom's library books. She had been just using her kindle, but this one is due back soon so she got back into it. It is a brand new book that she had been on the reserve list for a long time. I nibbled the plastic a tiny bit before she caught me, and it was easily fixed with book mending scotch tape. But darn! Those books are so tasty!

  Hi Teal'c
Please don't worry about my mom. The lump on the back of her head went way down by the time she went to bed last night, and it is just about gone today. Just a little sore spot to let her know to be careful. She is definitely going to Wally World to pick up some of those sticky things for the bottom of the tub.

It is downright chilly at 61 degrees here today. However it did, in fact, rain last night!! Yahoo! It was only .25", but it sounded so nice coming down while Mom was going to sleep. We are still less than 35% of normal for the rainy season, but at least this helps a little. Dad is actually going to have to mow the lawn this weekend. Plus we have a new gopher, so Dad will be gopher hunting as well. I should be able to have a sun bath either Saturday or Sunday.

  Hi Teal'c
My mom is doing much better after her scary fall in the tub yesterday, although she did chicken out when she got home from the gym and did a sponge bath. I didn't mind at all since that is quicker, so I got Mom sooner rather than later. Her head hurts just a tiny bit today, but not enough for pain pills or anything. Her trainer at the gym did a special work out to avoid blood rushing to her head, so that went well too.

Too chilly here for a sun bath today. Okay, I know 63 degrees sounds heavenly to those of you who are in the polar zones, but for here....brrr. It is supposed to stay like this till the weekend, when we will see upper 70s or even 80s. However the really good news? We might actually get a bit of rain tonight! Yahoo, the roses will be so happy!!

The milonga tomorrow night is going to be a lot of fun. Irish and spring! What more could you ask for? All the details are on the Calendar Page. If you are not there in person because of Mom's eyes, I know you will be there in spirit or with Moggie's girl friend. And get right over to the Milonga page #165848 and guess how many candies are in the leprechaun's jar before it is too late. We only have three guesses right now, but maybe Taz will extend the deadline an hour or two.

Mom is at least feeling well enough to blog for me today, and I am getting my time with her as well. The pain was definitely more on this ablation, maybe because he really burned deeper to get all the abnormal pre-cancerous tissue out. The liquid pain med works pretty well, but since one of the ingredients is liquid Benadryl, Mom always has to take a nap after she takes a dose. That's her excuse anyway. At least today they are only 30 minutes or so. Yesterday we were looking at 3 hours at a time. That did not leave nearly enough time for me! And she is able to eat soft foods today, although so far it has been cottage cheese for both breakfast and lunch. That's no fun to share at all!

  Hi Teal'c
well, I did not get a sunbath today. We are in the mid 60s again, plus there is a pretty strong wind blowing. It is supposed to warm up again on Sunday though, so I plan on getting out there then.

The wind did not stop my mom from going to the gym to work out with her new (great) trainer and she said the hour of zumba afterwards was so much fun it just flew by! I disagree completely, since I say she was gone for days! Any time away from me is too long.

Our phone was out when Mom got home, so she called the cable company on her cell. They were sending a man out this afternoon, but then about an hour later the phone rang and it is working fine so she cancelled the appt. that's what we call service! Mom really likes Time Warner, although I guess not everyone agrees.

TGIF! Now that Dad has gone back to work, that finally means something around here again. However Mom likes that Dad will be off all weekend, me....not so much. I love riding around the house all day on my mom's shoulder, but I can't do that when Dad is home....I will go after him and the beak is a-chompin'.

Mom and I loved Sennie Saturday. I can't wait to see Kacey's Tiel Thursday pic. Dad said there is no such thing as Sennie Saturday, but then what does he know? He's just a big bag of skin.

Milonga update: It is on the 29th this month. More news next week.

Sorry that I missed blogging everybirdy yesterday. Mom had her annual physical (or Wellness as they call it) exam yesterday, and it ate up my blogging time, since she went to the gym in the afternoon. Don't worry the rest of the time was spent with me, and I got a sunbath too.

Dad is holding up pretty well at work. He was pretty sore on Tuesday, because his job is pretty physical being shipping and receiving at a company that makes jacks for airplanes. Lots of heavy lifting all day long, but he is doing ok so far. He really hates getting up at 5:30 in the morning though. Mom gets him up and then goes back to bed till he leaves at 6:30. Then she brings me my breakfast and wakes me up. Seems like she is the household alarm clock!

Oh yeah, we had a little baby earthquake on Monday morning, but it was really nothing. Mom was in bed just about ready to get up when it went off. Things roll around a little, but nothing even tipped over here.

Our weather is still pretty nice, but it is cooling off tomorrow. Of course, for us that is down to mid 60s, and that would be a warming trend for most of my birdy buddies. Hope Spring comes to you all soon.

Cuisinart Assassin! I love it! Mom will have to share that one with Dad tonight for sure.

So glad that the BC Lakers took the Championship in yesterday's game against the Warriors. It was a talon biter right down to the finish. They are a very tough team. And let's not forget the Spurs, our third basketball team here on the BC. They are really terrific too.

Well, I decided to leave my St Patty's day pic up for one more day since Mom and I had left over corned beef and cabbage for lunch. To be honest I like the cabbage and the potatoes the best, but I munched at a little piece of meat too.

I had an extra long sunbath today, because Mom and I were gardening. Or rather I supervised from my outside carrier while Mom pruned and dead headed the roses. A lady came by collecting donations for our soldiers overseas. This org sends care packages to vets who don't get them from home. Mom gave her a small donation, but I suspect it was mostly because she was so complimentary about yours truly. She used to live with an Amazon that belonged to her brother, and that was all it took to get Mom's attention. She tried to get me to say hello, which is one of my words, but I only squawked at her. No screaming though, so you can tell I liked her.

Yikes! Helix was really a nail biter this week. I think Dad enjoyed it more than my mom. It was kinda bloody, if you know what I mean. And how about that villain looking so young????

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Whether you are Irish or not, it is a fun day to celebrate. Being mostly green myself, I am all ready to go. Mom and I are cooking corned beef, cabbage and red taters for dinner. Thye corned beef is simmering now, so the house really smells good. I sat on her shoulder and supervised while she put everything in the pot. Makes her think about the kitties who went to the Bridge though. Corned beef was their favorite food ever. I will do my best to hold up the tradition when Mom shares with me. It will be nice to have it all ready for Dad when he gets home from his first day back at work.

Mom went to the gym this morning for training and zumba. There was a guy in the zumba class, and Mom figured after about 10 minutes he would bail. He stuck it out and did a really good job. Mom enjoyed having him in the class, because he was cute and nice to look at. She said something about eye candy, but I don't know what that means.

Nice sunbath today as well. A bit cooler at 77 degrees, but that made it nicer for Mom. She still sat in the shade, but it was very pleasant for both of us. I enjoyed my nutriberry, but of course Dad wasn't home to come out and say hi. Can't say I minded, since I once again get to ride around the house on my mom's shoulder.

Another beautiful day here in So Cal. It is 82 degrees, and when Mom and Dad got home from the Saturday grocery trip Mom took me outside for a lovely sun bath. A bit breezy, but at least there were no loud trucks today. And Mom had two nutriberries for me, plus I tricked her in to giving me a finger perch again. Silly Mom! She never learns.

I need to figure out how I can send my warm weather to all my friends who are still dealing with snow. Then they could send that melted snow out here to fight our California drought! A perfect solution to a bad situation for all. I am still working on the problem, but I will set it in motion immediately once I have it worked out.

  Hi Teal'c
I read about Kara on the Calendar Page, and I would like to express my sorrow for your loss. She was too young, but if she had TB she probably was not feeling good at all. Perhaps she will be able to breathe more easily at the Bridge, and your flock members will be there to welcome her.

Mom ran bunches of errands today, including a stop at both of her libraries. Although I had her both before and after, that still seems unfair to me. She was gone for hours!! Doesn't she realize that I am much more important than any of those things she "thought" she had to do?

The worst part of it was that she got home too late for me to get a sunbath. I sure better get one tomorrow, or she is in big trouble!

Well, the Basketball championship is down to the wire. The Warriors and my team mates, the BC Lakers, are tied up. Be sure to come see the final game next Monday. May the best team win! (Sure hope it is the Lakers...)

  Hi Teal'c
Mom just sent you some pics of me for Sennie Saturday.

I had a lovely sunbath this afternoon, just as soon as Dad and Mom got home from the grocery store. No problems getting in to the outside carrier, but about 5 minutes before it was time to come in I got antsy. So Mom poked her finger in to the carrier and I hopped on. I made her be my perch for the rest of the time, but it seems only fair to me.

After the sunbath I needed to clean up my feathers, so I took a bath in my water bowl. I never get quite wet enough there, so Mom was kind enough to spritz my back for me. Once I was thoroughly wet, she was rude enough to tell me I smelled like a wet bird! What else would I smell like? Really! Humans are so dense sometimes!!

  Hi Teal'c
I love Sennie Saturday!! Where do I sign up? What do you need me to do?

Both Mom and Dad yelled 7 of 9 as soon as Sutton appeared. She is a regular on a network show "Body of Proof". so maybe that is why the short stint. That is usually a summer replacement show and should be starting up soon. Stars Dana Delaney who is one of my mom's favorites.

Nice day here today. As soon as Mom got home from the gym and took her shower, we went outside for a sunbath. I had a nutriberry and played with my toy, and Mom enjoyed some sun too. The yard was still a little soft, but not soggy anymore.

Now I have to make a comment on my dad's calling me a super villain yesterday. Today he added to it by saying that one of my super powers is the "Atomic Stink Eye", which I inflict on him every time he pokes his nose in to my room. He's not sure about the dangers of my Godzilla Stomp, but after all I have to keep him guessing. A birdy does have to keep some secrets.

  Hi Teal'c
Mom really liked last night's episode of Helix, but Dad liked last week's better. I think he liked seeing Sutton's head...well, you know.

Well, the rain is almost over, although we are still getting some sprinkles and light rain off and on today. Mom and Dad were able to do the grocery shopping (most importantly, of course, my sugar snap peas). However Mom cooked me up a batch of lima beans last night, and I really enjoyed having them for breakfast. I leave the skins all over, but that's Mom's job...to clean up after me right?

I got an extra long head skritching last night, I assumed my "I want a head skritch" position, and Mom kept it up as long as I wanted. We are talking nearly 15 minutes here, birdies. That was the best.

We have a heat wave rolling in later this week. It is supposed to be upper 70s by Wednesday, and maybe even 80 the day after. I feel a sunbath coming on.

  Hi Teal'c
Good to hear that Helix took a good turn. Mom recorded it, and she & Dad will watch it tonight. They go to bed at 10, so they always watch the later shows the next day.

We continue to have steady rain. We rarely get thunder and lightning with our storms, but an amazing rumble of thunder just rolled thru. Dad saw the lightning out the kitchen window, and he said it was so bright he didn't know what it was for a second. Takes my mom back to her childhood in MD, where they had lots of thunder storms. Her family would gather on the back porch and count the seconds between the lightning and the thunder to see how far away it was. This one was very close! Didn't scare me though, since I had no idea what it was!

Mom passed on the grocery run this morning, since it isn't much fun in the rain. I will have lima beans for my breakfast green. Maybe some for dinner tonight too, since it sounds tasty to Mom too.

  Hi Teal'c
I must say you are one handsome fellow, and that tattoo is beautiful. I'm not a fan of them normally, but gold is shiny, and that makes a difference.
Congratulations to the Warriors on their victory yesterday! Good game, everybirdie.
Everybirdie is concerned about Polly, which makes mom's heart feel so good. I don't know why Polly deserves such a fuss, but I'll deal with it. Polly is actually trying to walk a little on her bad leg today. She surprised mom by going down the step to the front walk when mom opened the door to take her out to potty. She walked in the snow out to the street, then back again. She is eating and drinking now, so that's a relief for mom. She wasn't so worried about the eating as the drinking. She didn't want the poor little doggie to get dehydrated. Polly is still getting ice, meds, and some passive range of motion exercises, and seems to be doing well.
Mom had a tour at the museum this morning, and when she left to come back home, there was a whiteout. For those of you who don't live in the snow, a whiteout is when it's snowing so hard you can't see in front of you. Anyway, she cleaned off the car, drove home slowly, but got here safely. We are just waiting for spring! I agree with Cookie, we should picket Mother Nature!
I hope you are warm and dry today, Here's a hug, Falco

  Hi Teal'c
Hurray! Although it means no sunbaths for a while, I am happy to announce that we have rain in our forecast! That is a big deal here, since we are on year 3 of the drought. (To be honest Dad tells me the bright green grass in the pic he found for my profile is AstroTurf!) The rain is supposed to start tonight and continue thru Sunday, which means our poor parched yard will finally get a good drink. Here's hoping the weather geeks finally got it right.

Meanwhile I am getting lots of mommy time since she hates to drive in her glasses. She will have to tomorrow, because it is errand Thursday which will include her nails, her eyes, the library and her therapeutic massage. And on the way home from all that she plans to stop and pick up the birdy veggies since Saturday (grocery day) is supposed to be 100% rain all day. So although I don't get as much mommy time tomorrow, I will have her all day on Saturday.

Mom fixed chicken and Andouille gumbo for dinner last night, but Dad picked up burgers on his way home from the doc's office. Since it is always better the second day, it is gumbo for dindin tonight! I love that stuff almost as much as I love jambalaya. Guess I am a Cajun birdy at heart.

  Hi Teal'c
Mom is back on line after three days without a computer, or rather without a monitor. The old one died, so Dad drove her around shopping on Sunday. She checked three stores, then they went to the library to use their computers and see what was available on line (plus leave a quick blog on the Calendar Page). Amazon had the best deal and a two day delivery. So now Mom is typing away for me with a 27" monitor!! She is a bit intimidated by the size, but as Dad says....All the birdies are bigger!! Hope to catch up with everybirdy quickly.

  Hi Teal'c
Well, I may not like teriyaki chicken, but I sure do love Pastor. That is like Mexican BBQ pork, and Dad picked up some at the local ethnic market to make tacos. But the sautéed meat smelled so good, Mom fixed a little baby burrito with some, and I loved it! I was yanking it right out of the tortilla, and it is usually the tortilla I go after. Mom liked it to, but now I am waiting for the tacos!!

Another sunbath today after grocery shopping was done.
It was pretty cloudy and not nearly as warm as yesterday. The weather guys said it got up to 82 here, but Mom doesn't agree. We think it was mid-70s, which is still plenty good enough for a sunbath. My perch came a little loose though, so I was climbing all over the bars of the cage instead of perching. Mom got it all fixed after we came in.

  Hi Tea'c
Happy Valentine's Day!

Mom went to the gym this morning for training and zumba, and then after her shower we went outside for a sun bath. She had to coax me again, but I did let her put me in the outside carrier. It was very pretty outside, I must admit. We had a high of 85, and a very gentle breeze.

Then Mom and Dad went to Subway for sandwiches. Mom got a teriyaki chicken sub, and we found out I do not like teriyaki. I kept taking a bite of chicken (one of my favorite foods), and then I spit it out. Yuck. What a waste of good food, but Mom liked it. No understanding those humans.

  Hi Teal'c
Once again today I got a sunbath, but it took a lot of effort on Mom's part. I guess I was just annoyed with her for all the errands she ran today that took her away from me for about 3 hours. When she got home I made it very clear she wasn't picking me up to put me in the outdoor carrier. It took nearly an hour for me to settle down, but then we went outside for a late but still 80+ sunbath. Mom actually put on shorts! Meanwhile we are hearing about the foot of snow that landed on the Mid-Atlantic states today and is headed north tomorrow. We send you warm vibes.

Stop by the Calendar Page and check out the info on this month's milonga. We are holding it on the Love Boat in honor of Valentine's Day although it will be on the 22nd. Sign up for a pic with your sweetie if you are a couple. If not, you just might meet someone that night!!

Kiddo

P.S. Actually Bitten is a werewolf series, but it is too far along now to start watching. The books are really terrific, a bit of everything.

  Hi Teal'c
Well, it got up to 73 degrees here today, so you would think I got a sunbath, right? Well, guess again, because I was a brat and went back to refusing to be put into the outside carrier. Tomorrow is supposed to be in the 80s, and so my mom is determined that I am going outside. Dad had a good suggestion. Since putting the toy basket on my play table worked so well, why not try putting the outside carrier on the same table? So we are trying that. Maybe I will be more cooperative tomorrow.

Mom went to the gym this morning, and she worked with the trainer on shoulder rehab then did abs followed by zumba. Wonder if she will be sore tomorrow?

Kiddo

P.S. Are your parronts watching Bitten? Mom has read all the "Otherworld" series books by Kelly Armstrong, and this is the first one in the series. They are sticking pretty close to the book. Wonder if they are going to do more of them? That would really be greyt.

  Hi Teal'c
Today is my first day back blogging after Mom's eye adventure. At least it wasn't my fault! The contact lenses will not be slept in anymore, and that should fix Mom's problem, and she will be able to blog for me daily again. She was thrilled to put them back in today after a week of fumbling about half blind. The meds worked great, and she no longer looks like the day after a drunken binge.

I will be looking forward to getting outside tomorrow. We are supposed to be seeing another warm spell through Saturday. And since we had two actual days of RAIN!!, the yard is a little happier although still brown. It would take more than that to reverse the drought, but we are hoping....

  Hi Teal'c
I am having a nice day after being without my mom nearly all day yesterday. She woke me up nearly an hour early so she could spend some time with me before leaving for jury duty. Then she was gone all day, and they never even called her name! I screamed as loud as I could when she finally came in the door last night. That means she is done for the next year, and she got lots of reading done on her kindle while she was there. She has tons of free books on there thanks to Polly's mom.

I have totally destroyed the purple cloth and cardboard ball that was hanging from my toy basket, so my mom put up another toy that is made of a cardboard box with things stuck to it. We'll see how long that lasts. Meanwhile foot toys that I have always ignored before are now of greyt interest to me. I chew on them, then I throw them on the floor for Mom to pick up. I think that must be a magic basket!

  Hi Teal'c
Just a quick fly by today. Mom is in and out all day long with appointments, then tomorrow it is jury duty. At least she is spending time with me between appointments. See you on Saturday.

Kiddo

  Hi Teal'c
I think everybirdy had a really good time at the milonga last night, especially the ones who live in what are now polar locations. In fact, I am surprised we didn't have a polar bear or two show up at the milonga!

It is cloudy and cool here today with a chance of sprinkles. Sure wish they would show up. Even a drop of rain would help at this point, but nothing so far. **sigh** Anyway not warm enough for a sunbath at the upper 60s.

Mom didn't get to zumba today, even though she got all dressed in her gym gear and ready to go. The pan underneath her car that covers the bottom of the engine is hanging down on one side, and Dad couldn't fix it. So it is back to the shop tomorrow. Hopefully this should be cheap.

And Mom is on call for jury duty all this week. She already knows she doesn't have to report tomorrow, so she will get the car all fixed up before she has to go. The rest of the week? Who knows? And she has all sorts of doctor's appointments, so what to do? Those goes get pretty ticked off at last minute cancellations.
