My bird was up for adoption at the pet store. I was told he was injured so they could not sell him. They were giving him to someone that would give him a good home. When I saw him, I knew he needed to come home with me. Chipper is doing great now!

  Heya, Chipper!
We actually had a lovely day here--it was 58 when Mom woke up, and it only got to 68. Dew point and humidity were down, too. Mom did her feathers again, and that meant I could not be on her shoulder, but she was busy doing stuff in the kitchen, so that was okay. She made these Chili Lime Chicken burgers that she picked up at Trader Joe's--those are really good! And of course she had to have some lovely Vidalia onions, too. YUM! After she rinsed out the stuff on her feathers, she got ready to run to Sam's Club. They had the PUR water filters on sale (6 for 39.98 instead of 47.98)--and these things run at least $10 in the store. Dawn (jug of it) was on special, and then the Clorox Toilet bowl cleaner (6 for $6.23!). Mom is splitting the PUR filters with Grandpa. The Dawn will be for Kim, as Mom can pick up 3 more before July 21st. Oh, yeah, she got me my tomatoes. Then she ran to Metro Market and picked up our rolls--they are the best, and you can't buy them at a lot of places. They are from Angelic Bakehouse, and are non-GMO wheat, sprouted 7 grain ones. Yummy! A lot of the wheat used out there is genetically modified, and can give people gut problems. Mom says that she loves these, as they don't give her problems. She picked up some carrots for me and some Vidalia's too. I was very happy when she came back home!

Mom and I were watching TV while she did her exercises, and we saw the horrible suicide bombing at the Turkish airport. Please take a minute and say a prayer for all those who lost their lives, and the injured, and their families. The world seems to have gone mad...

Wing hugs coming your way!

  Hi Chipper
If you're going to the Kissing Booth today, make sure you have your camping equipment, we're off to Yellowstone Park for an overnight trip. We're hoping to see all kinds of wildlife, and of course, the geysers. We're packed and ready for whatever adventure Falco has in mind.
Mom is doing laundry today, but with this weather it's also a pool day. She got 6 books yesterday at the pool from various friends. She went with 2, hoping to return home with one, and ended up with a bag full. At least none of the ladies has to buy each book! They all trade them back and forth all summer long.
We are in for a cage cleaning later today, too. Mom cleans every day, but once or twice a week, she scrubs everything too, and that's what we're in for today. I hope you are having a great summer day, getting lots of sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

  Heya, Chipper!
It stayed warm thru the night, and woke up to it being 69 degrees already. The good thing is that the dew point and humidity dropped so that it is not so sticky icky! 75 now, and Mom has the patio doors open and the ceiling fan on. Speaking of those patio doors--Mom washed the windows on both the living room and the bedroom patio doors. PLUS she did the two big windows in the dining room/kitchen. Holy moly! She sure was tired after that, too. I cheered her on. I like supervising that stuff, and not get near Mom. She says I am very smart. Hey, I don't want to get commandeered into doing any of the work!

Other than that, it was a nice day with Mom.

  Hi Chipper
This morning when mom walked the dogs it was trying to rain, so she figured it would rain a lot while she was at the center. No such luck, though! It cleared up, so she had to water plants when she got back.
Meanwhile at the center this morning, she was cleaning and feeding in the avian nursery. It was hot in there, for sure. Those woodpeckers were really active, and one escaped, but mom caught it and put it back. There are several kestrels in there now, too. They are so cute. There is also a screech owl who will be going to the zoo as an education ambassador later in the week. He is missing an eye, so can't be released, and we already have a screechie on our permit, so we found a new home for him. When mom left the center, she carried animals with her. She released a mallard at the river. It was the longest release she ever did! The steps leading to the river's edge were blocked off, so mom opened the carrier at the top of the bluff, hoping she would go down right away to the water. Instead, she hung out, eating greens, and looking for bugs! It took about 20 minutes for her to leave and go down to the river. Mom had to stay and make sure she was headed in the right direction, and not back onto the road. Meanwhile, the possums in her car were parked in the shade with the windows down. So mom released the 4 possums in our yard, and they were much easier. They left right away. Mom always wishes them a long happy life. Now she has to remember to return the carriers the animals were in. They are at the bottom of the driveway, so hopefully she'll remember to return them.
The pool was a welcome sight today, since it's so hot and humid here. After the great release, mom couldn't wait to dip her head underwater. It was a good afternoon, and now that she's home, she's all ours for the rest of the day. We love that!
Come on by the kissing booth, Falco is there for the next 2 weeks. She's planning on some fun. Uncle Frank is looking for more volunteers to be there, so if you can help out, let him know!
I hope you are having a wonderful summer day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Stay cool if you can! Hugs, Peppino

  Heya, Chipper!
We were hot and humid and rainy overnight and in the morning. Got to 87, but ugh, that dampness from the dewpoint being in the mid 60's. Wind changed tonight and the dew point and humidity are in the mid 50's with a temp of 77. Much, much nicer!

Mom went to Grandpa's tonight for supper and then did some weeding in his flowerbeds. Luckily she was able to pull some stuff out by the roots, as the ground was moist. She says she needs to get over there and get the rest of the weeds out, but she is not sure if something is a flower or not for some of the stuff. She knows the clover stuff is weed, and of course dandelions, but there are some things coming up that are questionable!

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

  Heya, Chipper!
I know, I saw you there but could not get back to say hi directly. Then after a while, things worked, and are working now. Hopefully. Would love to see ya there next week, but understand if you are not able to.

Ah, what a greyt day today! I got out with Mom to the market, and it sure was lovely to get that ride in the car, and to see all that wonderful food! Of course, I was the talk of many, who thought I was absolutely the best. Well, duh--of course I am.

We got lovely eggs from the farmer, and we got strawberries and sugar snap peas--Mom had already bought those when she saw they had snow peas. Drats! Maybe next week? The sugars are not looking as nice as last week, but they still eat good!

Mom says that the air is thick out there, though there is a breeze. Humidity and dew points are up--it is 82, but feels like 89! Mom says she could take a shower, towel off, and still would be wet! Needless to say, the a/c is on.

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

  Heya, Chipper!
It was a lovely day today--we got to 78, and the dew point was okay, but it is creeping up. Humidity is low. Starting to feel sticky again. Ugh.

Mom went to Meijer and picked up another melon--it is a Honeyrock Melon, and it is from GA. Oh, my! The one she got last week was out of this world, and she hopes this one will be too. And of course she got me watermelon with seeds (yippie!) She picked up a bunch of other produce, but she says the strawberries and peas will wait until the market tomorrow.

She got a late start as she had to run the heavy duty repair system files again today--fixed the problem she was having with one of the processes. All software related, all Windows 10. Grr! But I had her after she came home, all to myself! I love that!

Not much else going on here, which is okay with me.

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

  Heya, Chipper!
Glad you got the pic--and that you liked it! Sure hope Chipper is in the Prom Royalty--she looks stunning in that dress! Guess we have to wait to find out until Saturday.

Nice day here, now that the dew point and humidity have gone down. Overcast though. Mom did laundry, then went to the place she goes for her facials. They had a Casino Night--specials on all kinds of stuff, and the chance to win treatments via raffle. Mom has never been good at that, but she sure would love to win a raffle prize! It was fun, and a nice break in the day for her.

Me? She should have stayed home with me. Period.

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

  Heya, Chipper!
Did your Mom check the email for the picture? Sure hope you got it. Let me know if you didn't.

Mom is gonna do laundry tomorrow and is going to iron some of her clothes. Then she is going to the place where she gets facials--they are having a 'Casino Night' and will have food and raffles for beauty treatments--Mom says she doesn't win anything but she hopes that changes, as she can't afford the facials these days. But it should be fun anyway.

Mom and I hung out today, not much going on. Rain came, along with some thunder, around 6. Supposed to get more storms tonight, but hope they are not bad. Looks like it will be south of us, so hoping our buddies in IL are not affected by bad stuff.

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

Have your Mom check your email, as she sent the picture over to her for the Prom Milonga buffet. Hope you like it.

Today was a gorgeous day! We got to 81, but the humidity and dew points were low, and we have a lovely breeze. Mom ran to pick up her medication, and she brought me back a lovely papaya! She also picked up some ibuprofen for her mouth, as the stitches are irritating (and she forgets that she should not be chewing on that side of her mouth!). I took a HUGE bath in my water dish, and in my bath bowl, too, and got water everywhere. Mom said I did a good job getting under my wings, on top of them, on my back...yeah, it was an epic bath!

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

  Heya, Chipper!
Mom will be sending your Mom the Milonga Prom Buffet picture for you--she thinks it turned out pretty neat, too. She will send it tomorrow (Tuesday). She is working on the Buffet pix now.

Hot day here, with the dew points up in the 60's, so it was really making Mom feel like a large grease spot. The a/c went on, and Mom and I hung out together. She worked on some pix for the Milonga buffet. And she did her exercises, so that meant I got to look outside from the plant hanger. Cold front came thru and we are windy--and the dew point dropped down! Still warm at 80, but the dew point is 40, so should be lovely sleeping weather.

Tomorrow Mom will have to go pick up her prescription, so hoping she picks up something good for me at the store...Mom says 'what's new?'

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

Mom is ready to drop her head on the keyboard! Just one of those days today--and the high dew point sure is not helping!

We got to 89, and it is still warm at nearly 11 PM--80! Dew point is getting up there at 60, too.

Had a nice day today with Mom. She went by Grandpa's and had a nice time there. Saw the bunny rabbit, too--it was sprawled out next to the patio, then moved by the peonies, and finally, it was stretched out behind the bridal wreath bush. It was just flat out hot!

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

It was overcast all morning. And then it came time for the farmers market--Mom got me in the bathroom, and held up the carrier. I hopped right in. Of course, I couldn't go anyplace else, as I was sort of in the corner of two walls. But Mom was so happy! I got to see lots of folks who asked all about me, and I got to see good strawberries, and yummy peas. Even better, Mom brought them home for me! YUM! I got to see Paula, too, and called her a Big Cutie. Mom says that so many people stopped to ask about me, she figured that maybe it would go to my head. Nah. And it was so nice to be outside! And in the car, too! Lovely day for me and Mom!
Gotta say those strawberries were so awesome! Mom froze some of them as no store bought berry tastes as good.

Not much else going on here, which is fine with me. Just a greyt day with Mom. Supposed to be hot and humid tomorrow. Kinda dew pointy now, but the humidity is not bad.

Wing hugs coming your way!
Your buddy,

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

  Heya, Chipper!
So sorry we did not get to say hi yesterday--the channels went down and stayed down until sometime today.

Mom had to get her tooth pulled--the way the crown cracked, there was nothing that could be used to anchor it. She had her dentist put in this stuff to preserve the socket, though she doesn't expect she will get an implant there. You can't see it, so she will think on it. She needs one on a different tooth, and that one is visible.

She stopped at Kim's yesterday and was able to find the WI-FI password so her tablet will work, and she is connected to the internet once more. Kim is doing okay. Mom did not bring her any food like she wanted her to do--after getting her tooth removed, she did not feel like stopping for food that she could not eat! And Kim has all this wonderful *good* food at her house. She has lost weight--her hubby said he could see her chin again, which Mom agrees, and the weight loss is visible. Her foot is okay. She needs to get a recliner so she can elevate her legs, which will help her feet heal up.

Other than that, not a lot is going on. Voting for the Prom and Kacey and Mikey, and just trying to get my votes and blogs in.

Wing hugs coming your way!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Chipper
Yesterday was a washout pretty much all day long. Mom and her sister went to a new place for dinner, though, and it was very good. They will be going back, and anyone visiting this summer or fall will be taken there, too.
Mom had heard about their limoncello cake from someone at the pool so she bought a piece to eat at home, since she was so full after dinner. It was delicious! Lemon cake with lemon flavored mascarpone icing, just perfect for a warm summer day.
This morning mom had a trainee in the avian nursery, so they got all the cages cleaned in 2 hours! That's amazing, because the nursery is totally full, and there are places where there are cages stacked on top of other cages. They even cleaned out the incubators. The kestrels are growing, as are the baby screech owls and the hairy woodpeckers. There is also an adult cedar waxwing in there that mom suspects won't be there for long, as it was flying well today.
After the center mom went to the pool for a glorious afternoon of sunshine and water. Now she's home, BC is back, and tonight she's entertaining Aunt Ginny and Jessica. They are having dinner and movie night here since mom has that on Demand and Pay per view stuff.
I hope you are having a fantastic day, getting lots of love and scritches, and lots of great summer weather, too. Hugs, Peppino

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