  Hi Popeye
Has it cooled down at all? We had a few 90s days in a row and are happy to see today just hit 70. Mom celebrated by making dad some chocolate chip cookies. The oven does not go on when it is so hot.
I've gotten my collar off again. When it hit 90 yesterday I firmly told mom I wanted a shower bath. So she got skinbro to help set it up just right. No collar yet today--do I'm watching carefully, don't like that thing.

Happy ToosDay dear BC friends, things at our home have calmed down a little bit to at least tolerable levels, thanks in large part to all the kind moral support from so many of our best and most trusted BC friends! Their encouragement and chatting with dad telling him he did the right thing, even though it was an incredibly hard thing to do! Sometimes true love means letting go! We woke up to a well deserved cooler morning temp today, it feels good! Welcome back Chyna and aunt Denise, have a greyt day, and always think positive, we certainly always try to! Have a great day and give our best love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Real love forever, Jenny, Ms LaLo, Christy, BOTD Mr Ziggy-& daddy

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you are having a great day too! Our water went up 7$ in January. At our place they don't have meters on each apartment so you pay a percentage based on how many square feet you have. Mom hates it because even if we conserve we could end up paying for a neighbor who does not. It's the one down point to this apartment. Since it is difficult to find anywhere that would let us keep a dog McKenzie's size, we just put up with it. Usually when they increase something it never goes back down! Look at the price of gas!! We all complained when it got near 4$ a gallon and now that it's closer to 3$ we think we are saving!hahahahaha I think that was their plan all along!!
Enjoy your day sweetie!

  Hi Ms Popeye-from your gal pal Jen Lynn
Dad has had a terrible time just trying to move forward for the past week or so, it is very hard to sound upbeat and positive in the wake of sad decisions! The best thing is the conformation from so many of our dear friends that dad has done the right thing regarding Ms LaLo, she is very happy and that makes him happy! A special thanks to Eileen McClelland and Mary Haines for their sweet and understanding phone calls yesterday, ! swear their soft, sweet, and sincere voices could calm a raging river, they sure helped here at our home! We must get on with our Monday and life itself, please give our love to all in your happy love filled homes, see ya all tomorrow...

We will love you all forever, Jenny, Ms LaLo, Angel Christy, Ziggy, & our daddy

  HI Popeye
Well, no sunbath today, and this time it was the sun's fault! Mom was all ready to take me out at 9:15, since she knew today was supposed to hit 95. I was cooperative, but it was already too hot! 85 degrees that early! Mom switched her Monday gym training to Tuesday this week, so she is pretty much not planning on leaving the house today if she can help it. Unfortunately the 10 day forecast is all around 90 or higher, with just a few days dropping to 88. This is August weather, not June! What's going on?

I am looking forward to another pastrami sandwich for lunch. I sure do love that stuff. And since Mom is going through her kindle looking for something that really grabs her interest, I am thinking she will be in my room a lot. Works for me!

  Hello Popeye~~
I hope you are having a fun day too!! I hope the bubbler helps. Around here they have the gardeners come out and adjust the sprinklers all the time. If there is water on the sidewalks the gardeners are called to fix the direction of the sprinkler. The complex has to pay for the water used outside the buildings so I know they don't want to pay too much since it's kind of expensive. Funny that water would be expensive in a place where we have so much rain! You would think they would have tons of it!!
Have a fabulous day sweetie!

  HI Popeye
Well, by now everybirdy knows we weren't able to hold the Milonga Prom last night due to technical glitches from BC. I was over to the Milonga Page this morning, and it looks like the birdies who were able to log on held an impromptu milonga and had a lot of fun. So glad they did. Hope they will also come to our rescheduled party on 7/2. The winners of the Prom Pic Contest will be announced, and SP & I will do our dance routine from the film Saturday Night Fever.

We didn't get the triple digits they were forecasting for today, and in fact it only hit 94. However it was still already too hot for a sunbath (87 degrees) at 9:30, so I did not get outside today. Did have a nice one first thing yesterday though, so my feathers are still plenty shiny.

Dad pointed out to Mom this morning that Ms Gardenia Tree was really started to lean towards the sun. He was concerned she would actually go all the way over. So he was out there pounding a piece of rebar into the ground next to her, which was right outside my window. Obviously I had to scream at him, since he was in my territory. Then he came and hit my window sill with the hammer, so I had to pound back on the sill with my beak and let him know his life was on the line! Then to add insult to injury, my beloved mom went out and helped him by pushing on the tree while he tied it to the rebar. I was horrified at the betrayal, but at least she came back in with me afterwards.

We then shared a warm pastrami and pepper jack cheese on rye for lunch...well, half of one anyway. I sure do love me some pastrami, and I gobbled up quite a bit. The cheese was good too, but that meat is one of my all time favorites!!

We will be having another day in the 90's with high humidity, it is almost like swimming when you are outside! We have a lot to do to get MsLaLo ready for travel, with all her toys and favorite boxes, but dad will make it work as hard as it will be for him!

  HI Popeye
Well, the high today was 87, and by the time Mom got home from the gym that is what the temperature was. Too hot for a sunbath, as I eggspected. Tomorrow the next warm up begins with a high of 96, so Mom will get me outside before they go grocery shopping at 10. Then we are back to looking at 100 for Sunday and Monday. Sure do wish they would make up their minds, but frankly 99 or 100, either way it is just too darned hot.

Panther's mom, Aunt Staci, is home from the hospital!! Mom had a nice long chat with her today, and she is sounding much better. Funny thing was she couldn't remember talking to Mom while she was in the hospital, but then she was very weak from blood loss. They have moved her treatments for cancer up to the local hospital, since the trip to San Diego would just be too much. That is very good news.

Didn't get a fruit smoothie for lunch, in fact Mom never ate lunch at all. She said she wasn't hungry. Now I ask you, do you need to be hungry to drink a smoothie? What about what I want!?? She never even asked me!

Don't forget that the milonga is tomorrow night!! If you want to find out who our Prom Queen and King and the royal court are, you need to be there. Details are on the Calendar Page and the Milonga Page.

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! My moms mother use to use a thing called a bubbler on the roses. It hooks to your hose only it doesn't spray it just sort of bubbles the water out. I don't think you need to leave it on for too long since the water goes right into the ground. I'm not sure if they make them anymore but they work well and won't waste water. Moms mother lived in North Hollywood CA so they had to conserve water there also!!
Enjoy the day sweetie!

  HI Popeye
Today was hot, but not unbearable with a high of 87. Mom started working on getting me into my carrier about 9, because she figured it would take about a half hour and that would be just right. Well, she had to leave for her massage therapy at 11:00 and still had not gotten me anywhere near my carrier. Tomorrow's high is 93, and she goes to the gym all morning. So that will probably be 2 days in a row with no sun bath. Bet I will be ready Saturday morning for sure.

Next Monday and Tuesday were both supposed to be 100 or over, but now they are saying 99. We can only hope it will keep going down, because Mom just melts in that kind of heat and it is not a pretty sight!

Fruit smoothie for lunch again today, and I am now trying to get it from Mom's mouth. She keeps giving me sips from the glass, but I want hers. She explains that it would spill out of her mouth and pour all over me, but I am afraid I just don't care. For some reason she just doesn't get it.

I hope you are having a fun day too!! Your poor dad probably has to take a shower several times a day with all the work he does! I bet the driveway looks spectacular now! Did he finish what he wanted to get done in the backyard?
Mom got some of the vacuuming done and will be able to finish later when Ian watched McKenzie. She really hates that vacuum and unless the people downstairs are gone mom doesn't vacuum around her. Mom doesn't want McKenzie to be barking all the time anyway and we certainly don't want to disturb our neighbors!
You enjoy your day!!

  Hi super sweet Popeye-love from Jenny Lynn
...glad to hear you are getting some cooler weather, I wish we could also! We had heavy rains with thunder and lighting most of the day and night! No tornadoes touched down real close to us, thankfully, but many of our outlying areas were not so lucky! Dad's nurse numbers were really good surprisingly, but she was disappointed with the healing progress on dad's left foot, she is so hard to please sometimes! Except for the nasty storms that swept through here yesterday and last night, we don't have a lot of news to report! Have a very happy Thursday and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

  HI Popeye
Well, today is the last day to vote in the Prom Pic Contest, so be sure to get over to the milonga page #165848 and cast your final votes. The announcement with the milonga details are on both the Calendar Page and the Milonga Page.

Today's high is a little more reasonable at 87. Still hot, but not unbearable. Mom started working on getting me outside at 10AM (80 degrees), when I reminded her by climbing into my carrier. Unfortunately she was still in her jammies, so she had to go throw on some clothes and of course I wasn't in there any more when she got back. We finally got outside at 10:25, and even though Mom brought out my spritzer bottle we still had to head back inside by 11. Mom went right to the shade, and I got spritzed several times but was still completely dry when we went in. (Hint: our humidity is 33%!!)

Then Mom decided another smoothie was just the thing for lunch, and this time she used crushed ice instead of water. It was nice and thick and very cold. Instead of cereal for breakfast, she had pie (naughty mama!), so she still give me my banana bits and cut the rest in half and froze it. So the smoothie was nanners, frozen strawberries and frozen mango. Very tasty, and even the protein powder didn't take away since it was vanilla. Yum! Mom holds the glass tipped so I can drink right out of it.

We got tons of rain last night, it really came down in buckets! Dad finished the mess in our driveway just in time, but he is dragging this morning! Today his Nurse Michelle comes to check him out, we are hoping his numbers will be good! We are in for more rain and temps in the 90's, which translates to very muggy!

It had been a while since mom took us to the calendar page. With limited time on-line, she lets us visit as many birds as she can, but doesn't get everywhere.
SHEESH! Triple digits, you must be melting! sounds like dad sure did. Even with A/C, mom refuses to use the oven when its over 80. BUT she'll let dad grill, hehehe.
Dad used to close the kitchen door to keep the heat in the kitchen--thats when mom put her foot down. She did not want to work in MORE heat.

  HI Popeye
Well, they forecasted 103 as our high yesterday, but at the end of the day it turned out we got to 107. Who can tell the difference once it goes over 100, it is just too darned hot? Today's high is calling for 95, so a little better. I still did not get outside though. Mom checked at 9:30, and it was already too warm. Maybe tomorrow.

Mom did drive over to the library to pick up the books she reserved and wasn't able to get on Sunday due to arriving before they opened. Works for me, since it is only a half hour round trip and then she has plenty of reading material to enjoy in my room.

We had a fruit smoothie for lunch since Mom didn't want anything warm at all. I like those, and we both enjoyed it. Didn't really cool her off, but next time she plans to put in more ice cubes and less water. Either way I find them very tasty.

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Under Fifty is good for electricity. Up here most places are totally electric. We have gas for the fireplace and the water heater. Everything else is electric so 75$ is not bad. It could be better but sometimes the family is not cooperative.
We don't use the portable A/C unless it is really hot. It is only in the living room so everyone has to go out there. Mom usually takes me into the bedroom when it's on. Our bedroom stays cooler because of all the trees outside. Ian and Jennifer get the afternoon sun and their rooms get hot. We have a fan in the bedroom and that works just fine.
I hope you enjoy your day and stay cool!!!

  Hello Popeye~
I hope it was a good day and that you guys stayed cool! We use to have the same problem with the A/C when we lived in Mojave. We had to set up the electric so that we paid the same amount every month. If we owed more we would pay it at the end of the year or they would give us a credit if we paid too much. I imagine it's more expensive now. We pay every other month up here and it's about 150$.
Have a good night sweetie!

  Hi Popeye
Have you heard anything recent about Panther's mom?
Good to hear dad's leg is not painful, but MOM is cleaning cages? (Doesn't that job usually get done by dad?)
We were on Lake Michigan. We could look out and see LOTS of water. We were the width of the beach from the water. Mom tells us it was COLD, she only put her toes in. The skins played frisbee when the winds would allow. the flock had a good time. We stayed near the fireplace, which was empty, and watched the windows. There were BIG windows so we could always see the water. When there was a big wind, sand came in thru the window seals.

  HI Popeye
We are showing a high of 105 today, and overnight it is only supposed to cool down to 73. Now I don't really call that cooling down at all. And although this is the hottest day of the week, tomorrow is going to hit 95. When Mom left for the gym this morning at 9:30 it was already too hot to even think about a sunbath, and tomorrow probably won't be much better. Hopefully Wednesday really will be a high of 88 like they are predicting, which will mean an early sunbath would work.

Mom did her session with her new trainer, Talyah, at the gym and then did 30 minutes of zumba. She could have lasted longer in zumba, but the teacher was a sub that Mom doesn't like. If she had found out in time she would have left before class started. Instead she told her that her shoulder meant she could only do 30 minutes; naughty mommy told a fib!

She took a cool shower when she got home and then came in to visit with me. After a bit we fixed a ribeye steak and corn burrito for lunch. Mom went to put sour cream on the tortilla, but Dad had turned it into onion dip!! She decided that just might taste good, so that is what we had. I ate a nice little cube of steak and lots of corn.

  Hi Popeye
The Mad Claw sounds like an interesting place to eat.
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, Falco

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Sound too hot to me! I Imagine you all have air conditioning.
Pretty quite Sunday around here except for the dog. She wants to play all the time and can get pretty annoying if you ask me! I am not sure she will ever be a nice quiet dog!
I hope your evening is wonderful!!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  HI Popeye
Well, no sunbath today. It was already 90 degrees at 9AM, and there was no way either Mom or I wanted to be out in that. It hit 100 by 2PM, and tomorrow will be 103. Then of all weird things it is supposed to rain on Tuesday, although it will still be 93 degrees which means very muggy. Then the next 10 days are showing 90 +/-2 degrees. At this point perhaps Aunt Staci is more comfortable in the hospital, since it is at least 10 degrees hotter where she lives.

Of course, I am sure she would much rather be at home, heat or no heat. Mom talked to her today, and she sounded a little better. They can't tell her when she will be able to go home though. Please keep her in your prayers.

Mom felt like a real dummy today. She went to the library to return books and get the ones she reserved that came in. However she was thinking of the Saturday hours instead of Sunday, and the library doesn't open till 1PM...Mom got there at 11:30. Doesn't work. So she put the books in the book drop and came on home. Lucky for her a used book she ordered from Amazon showed up yesterday, so she is good for a few days at least. And there is always the good old kindle. As long as she spends time with me, I don't care.

Dad grilled two ribeye steaks for a late lunch (sale at the store), and Mom fixed a bowl of peas to go with it. She ate part of her steak in the kitchen with Dad, but she brought her peas in to share with me. Yum! Don't care about the old steak anyway, although I will enjoy it's next incarnation as a burrito!!

  Hi Popeye
Good for your dad, the trash guy should have picked it up to begin with!
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, Falco

  HI Popeye
We have the same problem with Chinese elms here. We had one cut down in the back yard, and it is reincarnated as four very large "bushes". Dad says he thinks the only thing that would work is Round Up or some other really strong herbicide which he refuses to put into the water table. So he just cuts them back every once in a while.

I got out at 9:25 for my sunbath because it was already hot (85). We only stayed out for 20 minutes because Mom was getting too warm even in the shade and I was climbing all over the inside of my carrier, which Mom takes to mean I am not a happy camper. Depending on the website you look at tomorrow should hit anywhere from 93-99, and Monday now ranges from 100-106 with a "cool down" to 99 on Tuesday. Regardless of the site they all are just too darned hot!

Mom and Dad did the grocery run, and although there weren't a lot of sugar snap peas in the bin they were nice ones (perhaps why there were so few of them!). Mom managed to find 21 for my three per day breakfast. She also picked up blueberries for a deep dish pie, but then forgot to get a lemon. She will get one when she goes to the library. I do like pie! On the way home they stopped at the roadside stand for cherries and got their last bag of Bings. Delicious according to Mom, but I turn my beak up at them.

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you are having a great day!! Worn out or not, 90 is pretty hot to be outside working. I know he wants to get it done but I hope he does it before it gets really hot out there. The rest of the west coast is having record heat and we are not even at 60! This is the reason mom wanted to move here all those years ago! She would be sitting in Mohave at 120 and see that Seattle never got much above 75!hahahahahaha They have been very happy here so it was a good move. Dad already had a job up here so it worked out well!!
Enjoy they day and stay cool!!!
