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~
Hope you are having a fun day! Dad is home so McKenzie is following him around which gives me more time with mom! We had a nice 4 days off but the time went by too quickly! I hope we can do it again very soon.
We are getting rain tomorrow. It's been dry for 3 days now but still cool. It was only 45 this morning. Mom even put the fireplace on for a little while to get the living room warm for me!
Is "that boy" going to come home for his birthday? I hope he has a fun day whatever he decides to do.
I hope your mom and dad have a nice time in Delaware. Mom has a friend in Virginia who use to go up to Delaware to a bird store. I don't think it's there anymore.
I know you'll have a great time with Aunt Lisa!
Nothing much going on around here today. Mom got most everything done yesterday since she had to go back to work last night. I do know that the kitchen needs to be cleaned up but that seems to be an everyday thing around here. I'll occupy myself with my toys while mom gets that done!
Enjoy the day!

Hope you are having a fabulous day! It's cool and rainy here. Suppose to clear up by 1 or 2 but since it's already 3, I don't think it's going to happen.
I am being loud today. Just feeling the joy! Mom is not enjoying it since she finally got McKenzie quieted down and now I'm yelling! Someday's it's not much fun to be mom!
Only 2 night to go and mom will have 4 nights off. Only 2 more nights of fair traffic too! Tonight is Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy. Ian said mom should leave right now!hahahahaha She can always get off the freeway and take the streets. She leaves herself plenty of time to do that.
We hope your mom enjoys her dinner out and that your dad and "that boy" have fun at the concert! It's really his 1st one? Mom's first was John Denver but she doesn't remember how old she was. In high school she thinks! She was so far from the stage that she could barely see him!hehehehehe
I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

I hope you had a fun day. It was pretty boring around here but that is okay.
Mom did lots of laundry and cleaning. I got bored with supervising pretty quickly so I played with a toy and had some snacks.
Tonight we watched Zootopia. It was very cute. Not lots of action but it was still a fun movie.
Enjoy your evening!

I hope you guys are having a great day! Nice here even though it keeps raining really hard and then clearing up and then raining again! Typical Autumn weather! Tomorrow is the last day of Summer!!
Mom had to run over to Walmart after she picked Ian up. She forgot to pick up the food for George and Gracie. Walmart always takes way too long but there are only a few stores around that sell the turtle food. The market across the street stopped stocking it when they did a remodel last year!
That was a very strange football games yesterday! Three of my Hawks got hurt! I did not like that at all. Then it was all field goals! Not one touchdown! It was nice that the Rams won their first game back in LA but I would have rather seen my Hawks win it! They are still my Hawks win or lose!
I think a bit of a bite is an appropriate 20th birthday gift!hahahahaha NAH!! You should be nice to him! That would be a huge shock and the look on his face would be priceless! I bet he is a very nice boy!
I hope you have an awesome rest of the day!

I hope you are having a wonderful day!! Sorry I have not been getting notes out but the router died and trying to stay online was not working out! We got the new one yesterday and Ian installed it. So far so good!! Ian says it's better than the old one and will last a long time!
The UPS guy never even came to the door. He left the router at the office. Luckily Ian gets notifications about his packages and he knew it was there. I guess the UPS guy was running late and couldn't get to all the apartments. There are a lot of them here and I can see it would take a long time. First time that has ever happened. Ian said there was a bit stack so I bet the office staff was not happy about that. They log everything and lock it in a storage room. You have to sign for the package before you can take it. They know Ian and Jennifer because the two of them are always getting stuff!
McKenzie got a new tennis ball this morning and is playing catch with this one instead of chewing it to bits! Don't know how long that is going to last but she seems happy to play catch. Mom was not happy to have to sweep up all those pieces of hard rubber from the inside of the tennis ball she chewed up!
I hope the day is just perfect!

Hope you are having a wonderful day! Nice one here weather wise. Going to hit 80 but there is still a nice breeze.
The maintenance guy came and put a ceiling fan in the dining room a little while ago. It looks so nice! I was here to supervise! McKenzie was in visiting with Ian. After he left mom figured she could get the vacuuming done since McKenzie was already in Ian's room. The filter was still plugged up so mom had to take it apart again and wash it. Now we have to let it dry for 24 hours before she can vacuum! Aw shucks!hehehehehe
Mom and Ian went over to the market this morning while Jennifer did puppy duty. Mom got some nice stuff but no apples. Apples are on sale at her store for 88 cents a pound so she'll get them there. The goldfish crackers are less expensive there also so she'll get me more of those! She did get a nice can of mixed nuts so at least I will have that should I need another snack this afternoon. She made spaghetti for lunch so I had some of that.
Back to work for mom so she has to get some sleep!!!

Hope your day was fun! It was fairly quiet around here today!
Mom took Ian to the post office before his work and before they even got there his work called and asked him to come in at noon instead of 9. They are short on hours and needed someone in the afternoon. Ian didn't mind since he already has overtime this week. With the fair going on in town none of the stores have been very crowded. They came home and mom took him to work at noon and then took Jennifer to work at 12:30.
Mom did laundry and cleaned the kitchen and bathrooms. I supervised! McKenzie was doing her usual running around so it took much longer to get anything done. Mom spends a couple of hours a day working with McKenzie but she is still pretty wild. She has gotten very good at sitting down but she still jumps up on people and still yanks the leash. I'm sure she will get it eventually. She is very smart but very stubborn also!
How is "that boy" liking school this year. Did he get all the classed he wanted?
Hope your evening is just wonderful!

I am so sorry I did not get by yesterday. Dad was on the computer all day and when we tried to log in to BC last night before mom went to work, it gave me an error page! I thought it was closed down but I was able to get here today!
Something happened with our computer so that was probably it. Mom could not get Google Chrome up today and ended up restarting the computer. Works great now!hehehehe Moms answer to any computer problem is to restart it! It works so I'm not saying a thing!hehehehehehe
Another really nice day here. I am betting lots of people will be going to the fair today since it's sunny and not hot. Ten more days before it's over and mom can stop leaving early! Last night was not bad at all so hopefully tonight will be okay also!!
Have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Hope the day is going great! Your mom is back!! How is your grandma doing? We hope all is well!
BC is still here!hehehehehehe Not too many birds left around but I still keep up with most of them on youpet.com.
Not much going on here. It has been very busy at moms work. Back to School is over and now Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas things are being put out! Yep! The whole back wall of seasonal department is Christmas lights and outdoor decorations. There are even artificial trees out! I think it's a tad too early but retail lives in their own time and are always ahead of the rest of the world! They have a few new people working there now and it's been hard for mom since she needs to do a lot of things that are not her job because the new people don't know much yet. Hopefully it won't take long for them to learn cause mom is tired!hahahahaha
Dad will be home in a few hours so he can take over puppy duty and mom can get some sleep! McKenzie is still as wild as ever. Someday I am sure she won't be chewing on everything! Today is not that day but I am hopeful it will happen soon!
Enjoy your day buddy!

Hope you had a lovely day! Much too hot here!!
We did get to see some F18's flying over out house! JBLM (our combined Army/Air Force base) is having an air show! It rather freaked mom out since they are a support base and there are not fighter jets stationed there! Mom was wondering why they were here!hahahaha
McKenzie loved it! She loves planes for some reason. The big cargo ones come over all the time and she always stops to look at them!!
We have not started the movie yet. They are still discussing dinner. I'm good with just the popcorn!!

Hope your day is going great! We are so sorry your moms mother is in the hospital. We hope it's nothing horrible and that she will be out very soon. We are saying a prayer for her!
We are getting chores done today so that we can have movie night on Friday. Mom hates split days off but sometimes it necessary. She is the only one who will do it. She just hopes it doesn't happen too often since she doesn't get enough sleep as it is.
Going to be hot here again today. It's summer so that is fine. I plan to enjoy the last few weeks of summer.

Hope the day is going great! It's nice up here again. Going to get a little warm for the next two days.
Mom is off tonight but she is so tired we are not going to get much done. She was hoping to get the chores done so that when she is off again on Friday night we can just have our movie night. Still don't know what we are going to watch. She will check out Redbox and see what is available.
Mom's store started to get Christmas stuff in last night!hahaha
Artificial trees, lights and outdoor decor! Most of Halloween is already back there. It actually won't be too long before that stuff goes out. The Christmas stuff will go out then also. They call it "early Christmas". Mom is not ready to even think about that yet! It is nice to see the Halloween stuff and what sort of decorations they have this year!

Hope the day is going well.
Dad is feeling much better and went back to his truck last night.
I bet the house seems quite without "that boy". I wonder if they have tutors should he need help with the class? A lot of older students will sometimes tutor to earn extra money! There is always the internet too! You can find out all sorts of things there. Just gotta make sure you go to a reliable website!
Cooler here also and it's very nice. We cleaned out George and Gracie this morning. We were a day late on getting that done since yesterday was all about getting dad ready to go. He is off to Spokane, Idaho and then Nevada.
The bad mom forgot to get me an apple so she needs to stop at the store after dropping Jennifer off!! She tried to make up for it by giving me a tiny vanilla cookie. It's just not an apple!! I did eat it to keep my strength up until I get my apple!
Enjoy the day!!

Hope the day was wonderful. Yep. BC is still here. I don't think they are very organized over at I5 but it's to our benefit!
It's going to be very hot here the next 2 days. Mom will get the portable A/C set up tomorrow morning.
Dad is here but he has an abscessed tooth and isn't feeling well. Mom sent him off to the doctor and he got antibiotics and pain medication. He still looks like a chipmunk but it is getting better.
Can't believe "that boy" is heading back to college! I hope he has enjoyed it and is looking forward to going back. School doesn't start here until September 6th. I'm looking forward to seeing the school buses again! I love to yell at those kids!
Mom went down to the post office this morning and trying to get home after was a mess. Both directions of the freeway were back up for miles. Mom just took the streets. There were no accidents on our freeway but 2 bad ones on another which is why everyone moved to our freeway!! It took a bit longer but she got here and I suppose that is all that matters!

Don't blame you for not liking other animals in the house. I have always been around dogs and cats so it's no big deal to me as long as they stay away from my cages. If they venture too close to either cage, they get bit! That's the rules!hehehehe
Going to be warm for the next few days. Not really bad though and we do have a breeze. It was a bit muggy yesterday but nothing like what most of the country has had to put up with.
We are having internet problems today so I have to make this short. It keeps going on and off and no one seems to know why! I'm sure I don't so it's up to the humans to figure it all out!
You enjoy your day!

We are still here!hahahahaha
Hope the day is going great!! It's warmer here today with a few puffy clouds. Feels rather muggy unfortunately! Guess we had to have our share of the icky sticky too!
Dad made it home this morning. He got tired yesterday and stopped over in Spokane. Mom figured he wouldn't make it from Montana to here with only 10 hours of driving time left.
That cat McKenzie made friends with is a boy. His name is Frank. Guess he is well known around the entire complex. A lady was telling his owner this morning that Frank followed her and her daughter home and was stretched out on the daughters bed! Frank is very friendly and seems to make himself at home everywhere. The guy said he is trying to keep him in but sometimes the kids let him out.
More chores for us today. With dad here mom can get the vacuuming done. Drats!

I hope the day was a good one! It's still cloudy up here but I still had a nice day!
Mom got her car tabs. They are red this year so they match the month sticker! It went very quickly which was surprising. You usually have to wait for a few minutes at least.
When mom got home she got the kitchen cleaned and started washing quilts. McKenzie's is done and the 2 from the sofa are in the washer now.
When mom took McKenzie on one of her walks there was a cat in one of the trees. It's not a very big tree and she could get down easily but McKenzie was all freaked out by the cat being in the tree. The cat is a little orange and white one that lives in the next building and she loves McKenzie and McKenzie loves her! This cat comes over every time she sees McKenzie and rubs up against her! It is obviously a very strange cat! She seems to stay right in her own building area but has tried to follow mom in the house a few times. I think McKenzie just likes having a cat that want to pay attention to her!
Hope your evening is just perfect! Do you think tomorrow is the last day??? I don't get the impression that they do things in a timely manner around I5! Okay with me!

Hope the day is going great! It's nice the family go to have another trip before "that boy" has to go back to school! It seems like it wasn't all that long ago that he was heading off to college for the first time. We sure hope he is enjoying it.
I have no idea what is going on with BC but I'll take everyday they give us! There are very few birds left. I don't think anyone knew they would still be up nearly a month after announcing the shut down. The newsletter said August but not when in August so who knows!
Mom had errands to run today but she wasn't gone for too long. She got a salad at Chipotle before she came home so I got a tortilla chip.
It's mom's "Friday" tonight and we are really looking forward to the weekend!! Don't know what we are going to do but having mom home at night is fun! I hope there is a movie and popcorn. That's my favorite!

Today started out pretty boring but that is okay. We didn't really do much this morning.
Mom went to get Ian and then picked up Jennifer. They stopped at Taco Del Mar to get dinner and when they got home and mom was getting McKenzie out of the car, McKenzie yanked really hard and mom dropped her keys in the car and the door got closed!!! A few youtube videos and Ian broke into the car using a screw driver and a wooden dowl. Mom has done it with a coat hanger but we only have plastic ones! Mom is going to have to buy some of the old fashion kind! Actually mom needs to get an extra key made since the other one is with dad in Indiana!hahahaha
Got cool here today too. We only got up to 70. What a difference a day makes!! Kind of liked it though.

  Hello Mr. Martini!
Can you believe it — the BC is still here, more than a week after it was doomed to disappear. Perhaps it'll never go away and I'll always be able to talk with you here.

How was your week with Aunt Lisa looking after you? I can picture you spending a lot of time hiding under the papers, chewing and shredding to your heart's delight, all the while watching the door for your Mom's return. I've been doing my usual, shredding the inside of cardboard boxes. Recently my mom's been tucking smaller boxes inside a medium box, and then putting those two into a slightly bigger box, making quite a maze I have to work my way through to get to the inside. Sometimes it takes some real scrambling to get out of the labyrinth of brown paper when I hear mom coming into the bird barn. I hear her chuckling over my hurried scratchings. The other day I was told I was incredibly dusty from all my shredding — and then mom blew on me, and sure enough, the dust flew! I take a serious bath every morning, right after a new dish of fresh water is delivered but obviously I can't stay clean for long!

You are so right about us having such wonderful memories thanks to this site. I'll never forget the baseball days or the sweet times of sharing a hatchday celebration or BOTD win with you. It makes my heart feel all warm and fuzzy just thinking about those days. The YouPet pages are an option for us to continue our special friendship, I suppose. RaneBeau hasn't gotten to create a page yet but I think he's going to try at some point. If you'll be there then I'll likely be the only other McFlock member to get a page there. :)

Well, here's hoping you get to see this note. One never knows when suddenly the BC will just no longer be here. It's so odd to think of our pages missing from our lives... You though, will always be a part of mine. Always.

XOXOXO
Your Girl, Riza •v•

Hope your day is going well! Pizza??? I love pizza crust! Jennifer and Ian have not gotten it for a while. Wonder if tonight would be a good night for them to do that!
It's been noisy here with the gardeners coming early and an apartment in the next building getting the carpets cleaned. I suppose they want to get everything done before it gets hot. Yep! It's going to get hot. We still have a nice breeze so it doesn't feel bad at all. Mom has been leaving the window open when she goes to work so we won't get hot at night. She turned the radio up to help drown out the traffic noise. It's just something you have to put up with to keep cool!
Overtime is good! Mom always works the holidays and gets overtime. No one else wants to do it but since they only get paid for 5 holidays a year, mom will take them!
We never know if BC is going to be here or not. It's been 11 days now so who knows! It is making the shut down seem anticlimactic!
Enjoy the day and I know you'll enjoy the pizza!

Hope the day is going well! We are getting chores done and getting things ready for mom to start her work week tonight. She has to go back to the market or to Petco since she forgot to get McKenzie food! Most of what she bought yesterday was pet stuff so I can't understand how she forgot! She tells me she writes a list and sticks to it and since she did not write down dog food she forgot! Silly mom! McKenzie only eats Iams or Science Diet and Science Diet is only available at Petco. Mom can pick up more Higgins for me while she's there!! Now that is a good idea! She can take McKenzie in the store with her also. She won't have to wait until Ian or Jennifer can watch her.
While mom was walking McKenzie this morning there was a crow looking around for snacks. McKenzie has never seen one up close and she was just fascinated by it! Mom went a different direction so that they would not disturb the crow. McKenzie kept turning her head to watch him. Mom keeps telling her that birds are family and we don't chase them!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's just perfect! Another day on BC is awesome!

I'm still lurking around BC! Aren't too many of us left. I'm over on youpet.com also and still learning about that site! We got an email saying that the bird page will be up on Petcha in August so I don't know if BC is staying up until then or not. I do know that the tech in charge of shutting us down got pneumonia which is why they didn't shut down on the 18th. Sure hope he is better. Don't want to lose the site but I don't want to think of someone suffering with pneumonia either!
Nothing exciting going on around here. We did get warmer but it's not too bad.
Hope everything is going great at your nest!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's sunny and pretty here and only going to hit 76. I can live with that!
Mom got up early to take Ian to work and then took McKenzie on a walk. She made us some oatmeal with pecans and applesauce when she got back. I ate that all up! Dad is getting ready to head off to Montana. I think he's going to New York after that.
Mom goes back to work tonight so she getting her thing ready for the workweek. We are nearly done with the laundry. We need to get George and Gracie cleaned out since we didn't get it done yesterday. That is about it!
We copied all our stuff off BC just in case they decide to shut down earlier. It took a while to move all of the BOTD Archive stuff!! It was nearly 5 years of BOTD's!! Don't know if any bird will ever need the info but we saved it anyway!

I hope you are having a fun day! I see they say that it is exciting news! Exciting to who? Not exciting to us since they are destroying something we have worked to build up over all these years. We do have the memories and we will still have each other.
I put a page up on YouPet.com. If you haven't been there yet, check it out! It's fun! The Petcha is going to have a page for birds and you will be able to leave messages according to the email I got. I only got the email from the guy I emailed. The general announcement came in the forum of the newsletter. If we can get the Milonga and other activities going on Facebook it will be okay. I rather like the YouPet and mom put McKenzie and Merlin up with me. I already have a dog and cat as friends! I think the cat is really into it cause she has the most friends on the site. When I signed up yesterday all 12 of the newest members were from BC!hahahaha When you add a picture it takes a while for it to show up so don't worry about that.
Mom and dad went out to lunch for dads birthday. It's on Saturday but he won't be here. Now they are home and mom is off tonight so I hope we get to do something fun. She still has to pick up Ian and Jennifer and then go by the library. She'll go look at books while Ian and Jennifer sit on the bench outside to catch Pokemon. Yep! They are playing that game on their phone. It is rather like a scavenger hunt! They seem to be enjoying it.
She will have to take dad to get his truck later since he is getting a new seat put in tomorrow. Guess the old one was making his back hurt!!

I hope the day is going great! Sorry for the general type note today but mom has to go pick dad up in an hour so our time is limited.
We posted the reply from Petcha on the calendar page. They say there is going to be a bird part to it. Crystal said they were going to move the stuff from BC over there. Move what I wonder? We have everyones email I think and we think everyone has ours. We are in the BC directory also. We will stay in touch! You have all become part of our lives and we could not imagine a world without you!!!
It is day 2 of McKenzie's recovery and if she did not have that scar running down her tummy you would never know she had surgery! She has been running up and down the hall, jumping on the bed and chasing Merlin! That was just when mom let her out of the crate this morning so they could take their walk!!!! Mom is going crazy trying to keep her quiet. She is not wearing the cone and has not bothered with her stitches. Mom gave her another pain pill so hopefully she will get sleepy and go to sleep. Mom knew this was going to happen even though so many people said that being spayed would calm her down. McKenzie does not have the laid back dog personality!
Enjoy the day and the time we have left here! I know we will figure out something.

  Hello Martini~
I hope your day is going great!! We are being quiet around here so that McKenzie can sleep and recover from her surgery. She did really well and hasn't had to have a cone on yet. She seems to be more bothered by her leg where they put the IV in. She didn't eat much last night but this morning she had her regular breakfast. I shared my pancakes with her too. She has to go back in a couple of weeks to get the stitches out.
Merlin was very upset when mom came home yesterday morning without McKenzie! Who would have thought that he would miss her? He fussed the entire day until mom brought her back. He is such a contrary cat!
Today is Jennifer's birthday! Mom and Ian got her gift cards since she likes those the best! When mom dropped her off at work all the kids at the daycare were lined up by the fence and sang Happy Birthday to her! It was so cute! Think she was a bit embarrassed by the attention!
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's just spectacular!

  Hello to You, Mr. Martini!
I'm SO glad to hear that your area was not affected by the floods. I've seen pictures on the computer (while sitting on mom's shoulder) of the sad destruction that occurred because of all that water. One story that broke our hearts was from an older woman who lost everything including her little Chihuahua. :(

Even tho you're not much impressed with "That Boy's" presence in the house over the summer, I have to say I think it's really sweet of him to share little treats with you every now and then. My dad was just talking to me, trying to touch my toes through the cage but since I wasn't real sure what his ultimate intentions were I stealthily moved out of reach and then just sat and studied him. He doesn't often attempt to interact with me so I was caught off guard, I guess. The parronts are about to head out for the their first weekend of camping so it'll be Middle Son Max who brings me my fresh water and food. I'll be quiet the first day he's in charge but after that I'm sure I'll be back to my usual preachy self. I let him know last time he was doing the room service that he was not suppose to move my precious boxes around. I've got a couple of new ones right now so there's lots to keep me busy over the next two days.

I'm in need of a nail trimming - oh joy. I do okay with the procedure, I guess. Mom says I'm better than some of the flock but not as cooperative as others. Kelly, she actually holds her foot out while mom trims and files her nails. You can bet I'll never do that! By the way, I told Kelly and Kirby "HELLO!" from you. They thought it was sweet that you thought of them. Kirby's doing great. She (yes, 'she' — an egg proved that we shouldn't have been referring to Kirbz as a boy) has the company of the three other green-cheeks, and Oh Boy~ are they a mob. The four of them are really more than a few inches apart and they're always into trouble if they manage to get out of the Little Bird Room. Last summer all four of them ended up in the ER thanks to catastrophes. Kirby's was because of her stuck egg, but Felix got his lower beak busted by trying to take on a giant African Grey, Dexter broke a leg somehow — no one knows or is saying how that happened, and Paige managed to give herself a major concussion. Her face was so swollen she didn't even look like a conure. I wanted to tell her she looked more like a monster but mom said that wouldn't help make her feel any better. I know it wouldn't have helped her LOOK any better either. HA!! So far this summer everybirdie has managed to stay out of trouble and out of the doctor's office, but then now that I've said that something is sure to happen, right? As long as it doesn't happen to me!!

Thanks so much for your note. It's always a treat to get to write to you AND to hear back from you. I send you kisses so many times throughout the day, it's a wonder your conure cheeks aren't worn featherless.

XOXOXO ~ Over & over!

Your Girl, RIZA

  Hello Martini~
Hope you are having a lovely day! Power washer guy came back and sprayed my window again!!! McKenzie went to defend it for me!! Mom had to put her on her leash until he was done. Then the gardeners came and used the blower thingy to clean up the sidewalks cause all the gook that was on the building was on the sidewalks!! I am hoping the rest of the day is peaceful!
Mom switched her schedule so she will be working tonight and be home with McKenzie on Thursday night. She will be going in an hour early tonight since she had to have McKenzie checked in at the vet at 7 am. Sure would have been easier if dad could have made it home.
McKenzie and Merlin broke the coffee table this morning! They have been working on it for a while and mom figured it wasn't going to survive! There is one at moms work that has a metal base and wood top so mom is considering that. Guess we are going to have to decorate with industrial items until McKenzie gets older. Mom doesn't like industrial!!!!
I hope you have a beautiful and peaceful day!!!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you had a wonderful day! It wasn't too bad here. Mostly cloudy the whole day and windy too! Not too warm which was nice since we had to keep the windows closed due to the power washing.
Last night wasn't too bad even though it was really noisy and lasted a long time. Non of us got freaked out at all. Mom left the radio turned up for us ans we slept okay.
McKenzie had to go get her blood work done this morning. It went fine and they were only there about half an hour. They gave McKenzie a treat and everyone made a fuss over her. She loves going to the vet!hahahahahaha We shall see how she feels about it after Thursday when she gets spayed.
Dad is not going to make it home until Saturday so mom is going to try to work tomorrow night and take Thursday night off so she can be home with McKenzie. We have read about what to expect but until it happens we won't know. It says that she should be sleeping a great deal the first 24 hours. Mom has to have her there at 7 am on Thursday and she probably won't be released until 7 pm that night. We think everything is going to be just fine. Keeping her quiet for a few days is going to be the hard part!!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's a cloudy day up here.
Today we are just getting laundry done and getting moms stuff ready for her workweek. I have been helping by doing lots of yelling! I know mom appreciates it so very much!
When mom opened the curtains in the living room this morning there was a pigeon sitting on the eaves looking in. McKenzie was draped over the end of the sofa looking at the bird. Mom went off to start laundry and clean up the kitchen and when she came back 20 minutes later the pigeon was still there. He stayed there for the longest time just looking in! McKenzie didn't bark or move towards him, she just sat staring at him. It was very strange.
I hope your day is just awesome and lots of fun too!!

I hope you are having a wonderful day!! It's been nice here.
Vent cleaner guys showed up this morning. Mom saw the van yesterday but they must have started at the back of the complex. McKenzie went charging to the door like she was going to bite someone! It was impressive and I'm glad she wants to protect us but the guys were on the roof!! Guess she hasn't figured out that she can't get someone who is on the roof.
Mom bought her a Boo Boo dog today! It's a loofah dog. Mandy had a red one. Mom got McKenzie a lime green one. She really loves it. She really loved the hedgehog too but she ended up ripping it to pieces! The Boo Boo dog makes different noises depending on where you bite it! Kept her busy for a few hours so that was nice!
Mom also found a metal basket to use as a toy box for McKenzie's toys. Had to be metal so she couldn't chew it up. She understands what it's for and they are going to teach her to put her own toys away! Now that should be interesting!
Pizza is always a great idea! Mom and Ian had teriyaki. Since Jennifer is down visiting her family and she doesn't like it much, the got that. Mom got veggie chow mien and I shared that with her. Ian got some sort of spicy Korean chicken. He liked it.
Mom and Ian are both working the entire weekend. Don't blame your mom and dad for wanting to stay home. It is never fun to get stuck in lines of traffic!
I hope you all enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

I hope you are having a fun day!
I had computer problems because mom clicked on something she should not have! Ian fixed it up for her and told her no more clinking!hehehehehe It did cut into my computer time so if I have not been over I'm sorry! We can blame it all on mom!
No tree trimmers or gardeners here today. They have been here for the past two days and it's been noisy!! We did see a vent cleaning truck but they are not around my place. They are putting new flags up front. Green and Blue! Seahawk colors!! I don't imagine they planned it that way but it's still cool!
Wonder if they are going to have an inspection or if they are going to sell the place??? Probably not since I know they make lots of money off it.
They were giving away tickets to see the Seahawk practice today but they were all gone when mom logged in. It was suppose to start at 10 am but they were all gone at 10 am!! Season ticket holders got first crack at the them! They let the public attend about 12 practices a year. Mom wanted to go on a day when Taima the hawk was there! She loves the players but meeting Taima would be awesome! She knows a few season ticket holders so next year she will get one of them to get her tickets. It's free except for 8$ to pay for the bus to take you to the VMAC center. No parking for visitors there so you have to park at the movie theater across the freeway and take a bus!
Enjoy the day and I hope you get to have lots of fun!!

I so hope that you and your family are safe from the flooding I'm hearing about. So many counties have been declared disaster areas! How terrible that so much rain has fallen and ruined so many people's lives.

My mom and dad are currently in Colorado right now so I half to make this a very short note but I wanted you to know I'm thinking about you and praying you are dry and safe.

With love and concern
Riza XOXOX

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Nice here. Not too hot and breezy too!
I'm glad I could get on BC today. Yesterday was nuts! I'm really sorry that the Milonga had to be postponed.
Mom made it to PetCo and got me the correct food this time! She also found out that Joy, the little Blue Quaker who had been there for 3 months was adopted! YAY! Well, actually she was purchased but she has a home now and mom is happy about that.
Mom picked up a new toy for McKenzie. It's a Hedgehog and she LOVES it! It's doesn't squeak but it made this funny kind of a laughing noise. Well I should say it made a funny noise because after just one day, it is now a silent Hedgehog! One day! She still LOVES it and is dragging it all over the place. She even tried to take it outside with her!
Mom got the first wave of Back to School done last night. Great time to get any stationery stuff. Mom is waiting for the little notebooks to show up. She always buys 10 of them since they drop them to 1$. We use them to write down stuff for the calendar page and other stuff mom needs to remember. There is a lot of that "needs to remember" stuff!hahahaha
I hope the day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love ya ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! McKenzie has been a bit crazy this morning. She wants to play but can't decide what to play with. She did the tennis ball for a while and then her new boo boo dog and now it's her rope. I have a feeling she wants everyday to be her birthday! Hey! Who doesn't? Mom got her a Subway kid's turkey and cheese sandwich and she loved it. Mom got veggies on the 9 grain bread and I shared that with her. It was good but I still say pizza would be better!
Mom did enjoy the time off but had to go back to work last night and had plenty to do. She knew nothing would be done and it wasn't. Always like that but she'll have it all cleaned up tonight. She doesn't get stressed out over it anymore! She just does the best she can to catch up quickly!
Mom's first Back to School ad is on Sunday! Yeah I know! The kids haven't even been out a week yet!! It's all in the stationery department since the big Back to School area is not set up yet. They are going to set it up in a week or so and then have to move it because moms store is going through a remodel. 3 months of remodel! This will be moms 3rd remodel and they are not fun at all. The store will look very nice when it's done but they have to get through it first!
Dad is in Utah taking his 34 hour break. He had to have the windshield replaced in the truck because it was leaking!! Never heard of a leaking windshield before. At least he has insurance for it so he didn't have to pay for it.
Are the parronts going to head out to the beach or vacation or go somewhere else? Mom was hoping to get down to Portland on her vacation but it didn't happen. Maybe next time!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it is just perfect!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Mom heads back to work tonight! Bummer! We had a nice time and mom says we will do it again. She is going to have a real mess when she gets there tonight but she knew that!!
Today is McKenzie's birthday. She's a year old already! This is the day dad picked for her birthday. The first vet figured she was about 6 months old when dad found her. Yesterday was a year since we lost Mandy so we didn't want to use that date so dad picked the 23rd.
She is going to get Subway for lunch since dad found her near the Subway at a truck stop in New Mexico. Mandy always got Burger King since she was found in the trash at a Burger King. If they ever find another dog I sure hope it is at a pizza place!hehehehehehe Subway is okay but pizza would be better!
I hope your day is spectacular!!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day!! McKenzie went walking on the other side of the complex today so no wildlife there. She doesn't seem to care. She got to say hello to a little girl and her mother so that made her happy. That dog really loves attention!
It's the last day of school here and the kids got out early. There is a group of Jr. High kids in the pool. They walked next door to Starbucks and got fancy drinks and now they are playing in the pool. They are playing Marco Polo! It was very exciting the first 5 minutes and I was cheering them on! Half an hour later I must say I'm bored with it and wish they would pick another game to play!hahahahaha
Have a spectacular rest of the day!
