Mom had always wanted a parrot, and if she got one, it's name would be Martini. She went to a local pet store with some friends and saw me. She asked for me to be taken out of the cage I was in and said "Hello Martini". I stepped on to her hand and it it was love at first sight! (:>.

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a great day! We are having a little Puppy Bowl party. Don't really care about the Super Bowl. We just hope it's a fun game and that everyone has a great time.
Mom has been filing the papers we sorted out this week. That is one big job done. Now she just has to make sure everyone keeps up with filing! There is a big box of papers for dad to go through when he gets home. I'm sure he will just love doing it!
Mom has 2 more nights so we are going to enjoy them! Jennifer is home and she is watching Agents of Shield. We have seen them but she hasn't. I don't mind seeing them again.
I hope you have a great day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Martini~
I hope the day was great! I took a shower today and it felt good. I had been feeding McKenzie some of my treats and then decided that we both needed to get cleaned up! She started barking at me when I dumped the water on her so I know she really enjoyed it! She got toweled off and I just air dried!
Mom took Jennifer down to visit her dad this morning so I got some quiet time! I got another piece of my hatchday cake after lunch. It was lovely.
The rest of the day was spent chasing puppy and trying to get chores done. We are now going to relax and get my notes done and perhaps watch a movie. It is very rare for mom to have a Saturday night off so we are going to make the most of it!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!

  Hello Martini~
I hope the day was spectacular! Oh it feels very good to get rid of stuff! Some of it was still in it's original packaging! Dad bought a battery operated wine opener years ago and it was never even opened. We don't drink wine so I don't know why he bought it! A lot of the kitchen stuff we got rid of was from friends of mom who had home kitchen parties and mom just bought something and never used them!
Mom thinks the Panther are going to win but you never know. It always seems to come down to who wants it more. She does not like Cam Newton very much but some of the other Panthers are good guys. Newton seems like he does not appreciate the blessings he has. Too much arrogance can cost you the game I think. We will be checking out the puppy bowl of course. Maybe McKenzie will like to watch that too! So far the only thing she has looked at was a video of a Cockatoo from Facebook.
Enjoy your evening and the weekend!

  Hello Martini~
I hope your day was fabulous! I had a pretty good one. I helped mom go through more papers today! Mom found tax returns from before she was married!!! She has been married for nearly 34 years!hahahahahaha Ian said it was pretty impressive. Mom said it was really bad of her to hang on to stuff that old! It's all shredded and gone now. We do know that McKenzie will bark at the paper shredder! Mom brought her over to it so she knows it's not a scary thing.
Mom made a trip over to the Goodwill and deposited a bunch of stuff! She is very pleased that we got rid of so much stuff! There were things mom didn't even know we had and hopefully someone else will be happy to have them!
Ian took mom to Chipotles for lunch. She loves having salads there. The manager gave them drinks and chips for free since they come in there so often. That was so nice of him!! They have had a lot of bad press lately but mom have never had a bad experience there.
Mom checked her schedule for next week and she is not scheduled until Tuesday night! That means extra days of vacation for her! YAY!! Don't know if that will be the case but it's nice if it is!
I hope you enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Tuesday night Dad, Uncle Geno and Uncle J.J. joined a full house to see one of the cinema's greatest films, "THE RULES OF THE GAME" (1938 Dir: Jean Renoir). What a joy to see this on the Big Screen again.

I hope you had a great day! Oh! I tried to help mom too but she said she had it handled! McKenzie tried to help with sorting papers today but she kept grabbing them and running off. Now is she is running off she must know she is not suppose to do that!
We still have lots of stuff to get done but we still have puppy duty too. Mom thought she would have all this free time since she is on vacation but no one informed the puppy of that!! She is still running wild and trying to chew on everything!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It was busy around here. We are still going on with the spring cleaning and the back of the car is now filled with stuff for the Goodwill. Mom will have to drop that stuff off tomorrow so she can put more in there. McKenzie is in the back seat so anything we put there would be chewed up by the time mom got to Goodwill!
The kitchen and the dining room are done and now mom is working on her room. It's slow going since she can only do it when the puppy is taking a nap or at night when she is in her crate. McKenzie is a very curious girl and wants to see everything!
Dad is in Utah and says the weather is nasty. He he one of 28 trucks who are hauling the equipment for a show called Marvel Universe Live. It's got Spiderman and my favorite, Captain America. It's coming to Seattle after Utah but I don't think dad will be hauling the stuff again.
I hope you have a lovely evening! Leaving a vote and a hug too!

I hope you are having a fun day! McKenzie is napping at the moment so I have a chance to get a note out! Who knew that our entire lives would be taken over by one little puppy?? I feel just awful when I can't get by to say hello but there are times when it's non stop around here. I think the puppy is trying to set a new worlds record for destruction of furniture! It is not going over well with mom!hehehehe
Mom is helping with the toy clearance at work. It's that time of year again! Actually they are about 2 weeks early with it this year. Soon all the pool toys will be out and people will be walking by dreaming of warmer weather and lots of sunshine.hehehehehe HECK! Easter will be here before you know it! Well, it will be in the stores before you know it. We have always enjoyed winter but this year we can't wait for Spring and some sunshine and long walks around the lake. It makes for a sleepy puppy and more time for me on BC!
I sure hope you have a wonderful day! We are praying you guys are all safe and warm! I hope it all clears up very soon!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been okay here so far but it's just starting!hahahahahaha
Gloomy day but I can't complain since so many places are having very cold temps.
Mom is getting some laundry done and we just had snack time. I had my apple and a couple of almonds, Merlin had some of the Greenie treats and McKenzie had a Blue Dog bakery cookie. Mom says it's like a daycare around here!!
McKenzie was in a very chewy mood this morning and tried to chew on the legs of the coffee table. Mom redirected her to a toy but that didn't last long. She then tried to chew the lever on the bottom of the computer desk chair! She is tenacious! Right now she is trying to kill her stuffed reindeer toy.
You enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! We are doing laundry and mom has been cleaning out the kitchen. She is giving her Kitchen Aid mixer to a friend at work. Mom has had it for 8 years and used it once! It sure did free up a lot of space in the pantry!
We have to clean out George and Gracie's tank and mom wants to clean the rug in the hallway. McKenzie barks at the vacuum and the cleaner still so Ian will take her out on the balcony while mom does that. She seems to like it out there. She sits in on of the chairs and watches the world go by!

I hope you having a wonderful day! We are still in the midst of cleaning out the storage room. Dad has all sorts of junk in there and I do mean junk! Who needs 4 boxes of old wires and plugs???? Not mom!hehehehehehe She found plugs for things that have been gone for years!
Mom has to stop by the market later to get some bread. Only bread left in the house was the rye that Ian got for his lunches. It does not make good peanut butter toast so I had my apple first this morning.
McKenzie was sleeping in the dining room when a truck came by and put on his jake break! It makes a terrible noise and made her jump up and start barking! They are not suppose to use them in the city but they do all the time. Guess they never get caught so they keep doing it. I know she will get use to all the noises around here someday. I did and Merlin doesn't care anyway since he is a cat and thinks he is above it all!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect!

Dad and Uncle Geno are furniture shopping for Geno's home remake. I hear it's fun, but they don't bring me along.

The other night they watched Dad's favorite acting performance. Dame Maggie Smith's Oscar-Winning role in "THE PRIME OF MISS JEAN BRODIE" (1969). Dad watches that maybe once a year.

He thinks Maggie Smith is our Greatest Living Actress. [Of course he's a Downton Abbey Fan].
Are Daddies allowed to like Downton?

  Hello Martini~
I hope you had a fun day!! Mine wasn't bad. Mom took a bunch of stuff over to the Goodwill and then took McKenzie to Petco. Ian gave us a gift card for Christmas so she got to go spend it! Merlin got a lovely new food bowl since McKenzie broke his last one. McKenzie picked out some new toys. Mom tried to get her a boo boo dog which is a long stuffed dog, but she didn't want that. She picked out a reindeer that squeaks and a bear that has a rope body. They were clearance from Christmas. It's what she wanted and she has been carrying the reindeer around since she got home! She got some cookies from the cookie bar and more Science Diet puppy food. I got nothing!!!! Mom has another card to use for me but I don't really need anything right now. There was a beautiful Golden Cap Conure there. He was $650 and mom couldn't afford that! I don't think we need anymore animals around here! Mom said he was a really gorgeous bird.
McKenzie has to go to the vet on Friday. She has to get the 2nd booster shots. They only give them a tiny bit at a time. Since we don't know if she ever had shots before she came to live with us, they have to give the shot over 3 months. I wonder what she is going to think of our vet! I hope she gets to see Dr. Jennifer, my vet, cause she is awesome!
I hope you have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a spectacular day! I have not gotten many notes done in the past few days. I'm sure every bird knows what has been taking up the typist time~or should I say who!!! It's like having a second job. She seems to like to get into everything! We are slowly getting her use to the schedule and she is doing great sleeping in the crate at night. Mom moved it out to the living room for the nights she is not home. She discovered the living room window and school buses yesterday. That kept her occupied for half an hour. We are working on "mom and Merlin are not chew toys" right now!
Mom has met more neighbors in the past 2 weeks than the entire 6 years we have lived here. Everyone seems to have a dog here. Not like when Mandy was out walking. McKenzie is learning to socialize with other dogs but gets so distracted that she forgets why she is out there.
We had snow on Sunday but it only lasted for the day. Just fine by me. It was slushy the next day but the roads were taken care of so the driving wasn't bad. Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night so if it wants to snow again, it can! Don't think it will though. Never snows when you want it too!

Our first day of the year seemed long and maybe a little bit lonely, but daddy spent a lot of time with me looking out my windows at all the outside birds eating the seeds we had put out for them, they need food more now than ever, to help them maintain body heat, it is very cold out there! Dad watched some of the bowl games, but could barely maintain any interest! Have a great Saturday dear friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

I hope you are having a fabulous 1st day of the year! Clear as a bell here but was only 20 degrees this morning!
We has a quiet evening. There were some fireworks that started around 8 pm. Mom was out walking McKenzie and there was a big boom but mom told her it was okay and just kept walking! McKenzie did not freak out! She did, however, bark loudly at a grocery store shopping cart someone left on the walkway! Mom took her over to it and let her sniff it! I guess everything is scary if you have never seen it before!
We went to bed rather early and mom put the radio on for us so we could listen to classical not booms. I know! We are a boring lot but it was nice that mom did not have to work and we could spend the evening together!
Dad was back in New Mexico on his way to Texas. He is sending mom a picture of the truck stop where he found McKenzie. It will be interesting to see where she came from.
I hope the day is perfect and I hope 2016 it the most wonderful year any of us have ever had!!

I hope your day was wonderful! Haven't been getting too many notes done lately! It's all the puppy's fault! She is one wild girl! Mom and dad are starting to think she will never get why they take her out so much! She is still a baby and it looks like it's going to take more time to get her to understand potty training. She is determined to make Merlin her best friend! Mom keeps telling her that cats do not play well with others!hehehehehe
Mom is off tonight and goes back on Tuesday night. That is just Monday off since she starts at 11 pm so she will have to pick another day off. It gets confusing since she starts at 11 instead of midnight. It's extra time off for her so she is just fine with it! They are having a huge storage event at the store mom works at so things have not gotten much quieter for her. It will slow down soon!
I'm not sure I mentioned this, but the reason dad went out shopping on Christmas Eve was because he got mom Seahawks License plates for Christmas! He had to wait until she was done with the car because they have to have the temporary paper on the back until the plates show up! It would have ruined the surprise if mom had seen the temporary! I think dad did good!

Merry Christmas!! Can't believe it's already here!! I hope tomorrow is just wonderful for you!

Dad has gone off Christmas shopping. Yes! I know! It's Christmas Eve. Dad never goes shopping before Christmas Eve. He says it's his Christmas tradition. I think dad just like to put things off until the last minute!

I am starting to think that McKenzie is a bird dog!! She tried to chew the coffee table and loves to chew boxes! I swear I did not teach her any of this! It's all coming naturally so that is why I think she might be part bird! Cool!hehehehehe

Mom rented Mission Impossible and Pan from the Redbox so we will be watching those later. Mom and I are going to watch Pan since she has no interest in seeing Mission Impossible. Popcorn and a movie while we get laundry done! Great way to spend Christmas Eve!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! I'm sorry I didn't get around much yesterday. It was just a busy day with puppy duty. It is slowly getting calmer around here but I have to tell you that Merlin is just such a drama king! I think he is a bit jealous of the puppy! I just sit in my play cage and watch the two of them! As long as McKenzie does not come near my cage, we will get along just fine. I still have a cardboard wall around the bottom of my cage to keep me from biting her. We are never alone, not even for a second. If mom has to go to another room she takes McKenzie with her.
Only 2 more work nights for mom and then it's 2 days off! She wishes she could say the Christmas rush will be over then but they are having a huge sale on the 26th and then all the storage stuff happens. Once the Christmas stuff is gone, they put storage boxes and baskets up in Seasonal. The Christmas stuff will go quickly since they are marking it 75% off the day after Christmas.
I posted some pictures of McKenzie, Merlin and I in my gallery. I hope you enjoy them!
Enjoy your day too!

I hope you are enjoying the day! I am toasty warm in my play cage having a snack and chatting with mom!
McKenzie did well in the crate last night. It's all wire so she can see out. Mom got her bed in there and gave her the parrot toy. She covered the back with a blanket so that the nightlight wouldn't shine on her. She fussed for a bit but then went to sleep.
Wish potty training was going as well but it hasn't even been one day yet. We did have to get the carpet cleaner out last night.
McKenzie pulled Merlin's bowl off the table and broke it. Mom will replace it with something in stainless steel. She sure did figure out what the kitchen was for pretty quickly! I'd say she is a smart dog.
Merlin does not like her very much! He already tried to whack her but mom stopped him. Mom assures me that they will get use to each other eventually.
I think she is very cute but if she comes near the cage, I will bite her. I do have to defend my cage you know! There is a big piece of cardboard wrapped around the bottom of my cage so that I can not get to her if she comes to visit!
Still cold here and is suppose to rain until Christmas!! Christmas is only 6 days away now! Seems like the time just flew by.
Have an awesome day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Merlin ran off to hide in the bedroom. I climbed down to give her a bite! Mom is going to wrap cardboard around the bottom of my play cage so that there are not accidents.
Mom has not sat down since McKenzie got here! Should have seen mom try to eat lunch!hahahaha McKenzie would trot over to my cage and mom would go get her. McKenzie would sit on her bed for a little while and then trot back over! I think she is in awe of me!!
Mom and Dad had to go down to Petsmart to pick up a crate. If they don't lock her up tonight no one is going to get any sleep!
She grabbed the turtle food and took off with that and then grabbed the box of turtle filters. She found Merlin's rope and was trying to chew that up! I think I will be saying
"McKenzie No" very soon!hahahahaha This should all be very interesting!
Star Wars was good and they enjoyed it. Next one won't be out for a year and a half. Ian and Jennifer already want to go see it again.
I hope your day was awesome!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Martini!
Merry Almost Christmas! Can you believe the year is nearly finished up already? Seems like the new one just got started and here we are, back at winter again! Well, it's not really been much like winter yet here. It was in the mid-sixties last weekend and mom said it was just about warm enough for me to go outside for a bit. I didn't, of course, but the thought was nice. I've been keeping myself busy with boxes here lately. For the longest time I didn't pay any attention to the floor of my cage but then one day I decided it was high time to check out the papers and the view from underneath of them. Since there's no tray under my wire floor I can see the button quail running around underneath. Their water pan was on the floor under my cage but when I started shredding my papers I was making a mess of their water so it got moved. *smirk* I got a small box to shred the other day. I'm told I can have it as long as I don't go and get all territorial about my cage. I've been known to over-react when mom's reached in. Hey, I was afraid she was going to take my box that I'd work hard on! I like to shred the paper on the inside. Sadly, the whole thing eventually caves in and my project ends up in the trash. That's always a sad day, to see it hauled away to be burned. Luckily another one is soon put in and my beak gets right to work redecorating the inside.

I'm sure you're sleeping in some sort of Christmasy tent these days. Perhaps a Santa Clause or candy cane-covered one? No matter the pattern, I know you look cute in it.

I imagine "That Boy" is home for the holidays at this point. Oh boy. You'll be all tuckered-out from keeping a close eye on him while he's there!

If I don't get to chat with you again before next Friday, MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family, Martini.

Christmas Kisses from you Girl~ XXXX

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!
I am sorry for not getting around much the last few days. I am not sure who I have told and who I have missed, but the puppy is coming home with dad. She is about 6 months old and the vet said she had been out longer than just 3 days. Probably dumped by a truck driver since she was at a truck stop. Dad can attest to the fact that having a puppy in a truck is not a good idea!
She has mange and anemia. The mange is not the contagious kind so Merlin and I will be fine. She is taking meds for it and it will be gone in about 3 weeks. We are preparing for her to come home tomorrow. We named her McKenzie. Have not had a puppy for a long time so we are trying to puppy proof the place. Not easy since we don't really know what she is going to try to get into. Mom made a wall out of a cardboard box and put it around the computer so she can't get to any of those cords. She will be supervised all the time so there will not be any disasters.
She and dad are in central Oregon right now and dad told mom McKenzie is just fascinated with all the trees. If she likes trees then she came to the right place to live!
Star Wars premier tonight! I'll be in solitary until they get back! Mom added another toy and she'll be sure that I have plenty of snacks.
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's spectacular!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a great day! I am so sorry I didn't get by this weekend. Mom took Jennifer down to her dads house and then picked her up yesterday! It was slow going with all the rain! Sun is out today! Almost forgot what that looked like!
Dad is in Gallup where it was 29 degrees this morning. When dad went into the truck stop to get some coffee he found a dog shivering by the door! The people at the truck stop said it had been there for 3 days! People were feeding her Subway sandwiches! Dad picked her up and put her in the truck where is was nice and warm. He gave her some lunch meat because that is all he had that was suitable for a dog. She drank 3 bowls of water and then curled up on the passenger seat and went to sleep! Dad located a vet because she has a cut on her jaw and dad said it looked infected. She is at the vet now. They told dad to call back around 2:30 central time since both the vets were in surgery. They are going to scan her for a microchip also but dad doesn't think she'll have one. Don't know if she was dumped or got lost but she'll be okay now. Dad was going to look for a shelter, which turns out to be right next door to the vet, but mom told him not to be crazy! Just bring her home! Animals that were meant to be part of our family always seem to find us! We are just praying she is healthy! Her picture is in my gallery.
Oh! Dad found a horse on the side of the road too but he called the police to handle that! Guess it wouldn't fit in the truck!hahahahahaha Ian said that people in Gallup don't seem to be able to take care of their animals! The horse just got outside the fence somehow but dad was afraid it would get hit by a car. They got the owner and the horse is safely home now!
Enjoy your day!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Heya, Martini!
Oh, those annoying popups at the bottom of the page have to go! Mom thought the security program she had installed had gone south, so she ended up calling mcafee and they told her to call time warner, then time warner told her to call mcafee. ARRGGGHHH! An afternoon wasted. She just uninstalled the program and reinstalled it again. Now she is running scans to make sure nothing go in her puter. Nope. This is a BC/i5 thing (they are runing a javascript on the page) so there is no easy way to block them. Popups and this thing are a pain in the tailfeathers, and Mom says that the one with the Juicy Couture is enough to gag her. Grrr.

Thanks so much for stopping by to drop off that vote for me, and hope you are being entertained by the story! Without further ado, part 5:


He looked in Soft-Scoop’s ear, he made him blow his nose,
He tried to take his temperature but his thermometer just froze.
He listened to his chest, and he made him flap his wings.
He measured height, he measured weight and lots of other things.

And in the end he rubbed his chin and then he went all quiet.
And then at last he said “I think the problem is your diet.”
“I have some chocolate in my bag and you can have a bite.
I’m hoping that its creaminess will help your fire to light.”

So Soft-Scoop ate the chocolate bar and tried to look more scary.
“Now concentrate,” said Oven-Bake. “And don’t think about dairy.”
So Soft-Scoop opened up his mouth and without further delay
He huffed and puffed and breathed out a chocolate fudge sundae!

“Amazing!” exclaimed Doctor Singe. “How utterly bizarre!
Next try a banana. Fruit is healthier by far.”


Does the banana help? They are good for pretty much everyone, but a dragon? Guess you have to wait to find out!

Wing hugs from me to you!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a great day. Bit of a break in the rain right now! The gardeners are here but lets get real! Everything is too soggy to mow so they are using the blower thingy to clean up which is silly since the maintenance guy sweep the whole place every morning. I think they should just walk next door to Starbucks and relax and have some coffee. Being a gardener is a very hard job!
The lights are on the tree and a couple of my Hello Kitty ornament are at the top. Merlin went over to check out the lights but then left to get some treats. Food works every time with that cat!
I'm sitting here on moms shoulder keeping an eye on that tree. She took me over to it so I could see my Hello Kitty ornaments but I didn't want to get too close. A bird can never be too careful you know.
I hope you do get to have some of the Razzleberry pie! It really is very tasty!
I hope you have a fantastic day! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Mom finished up the Christmas cards yesterday which is why I did not get a chance to get notes out! I'm not allowed to touch them so I don't see what good they are! I do get to look at them but I'm sure ripping it a bit would be much more fun!
Still raining here. Not really unusual for this time of the year but we are just getting bigger rain storms this year. The wind is back too! It might be time to see if I can figure out how to build and ark!hehehehehe Nope! We are on the second floor and there is a moat around the buildings so not much chance of flooding here. Driving is a challenge. There are "Water over the roadway" signs everywhere. It doesn't seem to make everyone slow down though. Mom had been hit with a wave a couple of times now. She doesn't drive crazy so she has been just fine.
The tree is still sitting there naked as can be! Perhaps mom will get the lights on it today. Once Merlin figured out there was no food on it, he has ignored it. We'll see how it goes with lights on it. I imagine the ornaments are going to be the real test. Cats are such a bother!
Enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥
