  HELLO FROM FINNEGAN
Hi Gus,
Lucy, Zoe and I all love to help Momma, too, but she seems to have the same reaction that your Mom had. "Daddy, please take the birdies and go somewhere else with them!" Luch has always liked helping Momma clean, but I'd rather sit on my cage when she's vacuuming 'cause then I can take a bath, like you do. It must be because the vacuum reminds me of thunder that it motivates me to bathe. In the summer when it storms, I just love taking a bath, too. I really like that thunder. The more it crackles and pours, the wetter I get. We're a couple of funny green guys, aren't we?
Big Hugs from Finnegan

  Hi Gus
It's Sawyer.
Mom and dad stayed home yesterday and just puttered around the house. They did laundry and made 35 deviled eggs for Super Bowl Sunday at mom's brother's house. the eggs will last about 20 minutes. Dad did a little bit more cleaning and put clean sheets on the bed. Then he grilled New York steaks for dinner.
Today will be clear and warm, with a high of 80 and a low of 55. Mom and dad are going to the La Mirada theater so see a musical about the building of the Empire State Building. It's called Empire.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

  Hi Gus & Cheech-from Jen & flock
...thank you so much for your prayers for our daddy, he needs he all he can get! Our dad rested a lot yesterday and is feeling much better today, at any rate we are back at our normal routine! It is slightly warmer today, but the weather is an ever-changing and volatile thing, so we try not to let it bother us to badly! I think most of our humans have little medical issues they deal with on a regular basis, and we do not want to bore anybody with ours! Life is good, but you must never give up, keep on keeping on! Have a great Saturday and give our love to all in your fabulous family, see ya all tomorrow dear hearts...

Love forever from Jen, Christy. LaLo, Ziggy, & daddy Dallas

  Hi, Gus
That's an eggcellent idea of Kiddo's to add hot peppers to the suet. We love hot peppers. Hopefully having it up higher works but know it would be more convenient not to have to get that backhoe out.

Sounds like your mom got a lot done but know having fids supervise only helps a tad bit. Having a dad in the way is never any help at all.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Gus !
Remember yesterday I told you no snow in the near future ? Well, listen to this ! Mom finished my blogs yesterday morning and peeked out the window - there were a few flurries, as predicted, so she got ready to get in the shower. By the time she got out the sky was white ! Snow ! Fast and furious ! The phone rang . . . 2 hour delay. So mom made blueberry scones for me and dad . . . it was still snowing like crazy when the phone rang again - SNOW DAY ! Three day weekend ! We had a great lazy day . . . skritches, fetch and television - I even got one of the blueberries :)

We even finished the Valentine's for mom's class . . . and one for daddy yesterday :)

Today is heading up to the mid to upper 30's so lots of it should melt. Another shot of it on Tuesday - mom's been dvr'ing reruns of the JOHNNY CARSON show to see in the morning (since she can't stay awake to watch them at night like when she was a kid) Maybe she needs to watch the WeatherChannel instead ! !

Have a great day and don't forget, today is the last day to try your wing at the love songs over at NAME THAT TUNE on page 231616 !

Love to you :) Cookie

  Hi Gus
I too think the peppers are a good idea to keep everyone out of the feeders that shouldn't be there.
Well, we birds are very good supervisors and our moms need us. Wha????? You were kicked out of the kitchen ... unheard of!
It was sunny today but no pool for us. I'm sitting on my perch wearing my flip flops and waiting for the warm weather. They say we'll have 60's (62 to 65) for another week, so sad. Even the plants aren't happy with too much rain and cold. I think we have to move further south, maybe St Thomas ... LOL!

  Hey Gus,
Sorry I didn't get my blog out today as mom had an interview lunch time and they made her wait for a few minutes then told her to come back in 15 minutes. Plus mom had to feed the meter but forgot her phone at work so she drove a block and then came back. She had to kinda walk far so when she came home she took a long birdie nap.

She didn't get up till 6 pm, what a snoozer I tell ya!

So tonight I'm gonna talk about Iolani Palace that's in town.

It's full of antiques and portraits of the past king and queens and other Hawaiian descendants also.

Mom took a ghost walking tour one night long time ago and one stop was at the palace and the tour guide was a renound ghost guy.

At one end where the princess was being held he said you could smell her perfume blowing in the breeze. And everyone on the tour could smell it and got chicken skin. Down the street was an old building that was an old morgue back in the day and that's why people in that building has eggsperienced things moving or missing.

The spirits are alive and moving there. Mom never worked in that building, well not since she heard about that.

The ghost tour ended up in the graveyard in town which was appropriate being a ghost tour an all.

Mom enjoyed it and so did her friends.

In my gallery you can see the palace and also other pictures.

Now you know if you ever go by the palace on the east side corner, try and see if you can smell the princess perfume. You'll be amazed, mom was. :)

That's all for tonight as my typist is getting sleepy.

More tomorrow and I thank you for your votes and support.

Here's a vote for you also.

Love and Aloha,

Laka Aolani, BOTM Candidate

  Hello Gus~
I hope your day was lovely! The peppers sound like a good idea. It will make the Raccoon not want the suet and it won't hurt him. I suppose they are just hungry too.
We did laundry today too but it was towels and rugs. I get to help with them. For some reason no one wants me to help fold their clothes!! Don't know why!!
Enjoy the evening!

HAPPY TGIF DAY
this is not an infomercial. mom was very excited when she found this website. tired of being in a culture of waste and contributing to the massive landfill dilemmas. remember when products from the 50's lasted forever and if you are lucky enough to still own any chances are they are still working. now their is a website that only stocks products that guarantee they will last a lifetime
Tired of replacing stuff? Buy Me Once solves that problem. i suggest you check it out. they don't carry everything and are interested in know about things you think are excellent products.

  ere.Our dad called and when Mom told him we were in the dark he told Mom to get us under a blanket and get her coat on and keep us warm on the couch.Skin sis was trying to get into Mom's driveway with her friend(who was driving and having a problem with his car)and couldn't because it wasn't plowed.Mom couldn't even get skin sis to come in the house as she couldn't open the garage door as it runs by electricity and the deck was snowed in and Mom couldn't open the front door.Dad is still out there and Mom was praying our power would come back on.Mom called EverSource again and they told her the power would come back on at 8:00pm tonight,four hours away.We were so happy when it did and now we're waiting on the house to start warming up,still under Mom's coat.Mom and all us fids are so happy to be warm again.We only wish my daddy could come home,he's been gone since 2am this morning and he's still out there working the storm with his coworkers clearing the roads for the town.My dad finally got home after 11pm tonight and Mom had to make him dinner at 11:30pm so we are quite late and behind on getting our notes done because of the power outage.

  Hi Gus
What a precious pic of you and Suzi!I sure do hope that you entered it in the Milonga contest,its a surefire winner for sure!Aunt Jinky was very busy today and got a lot done.Mom needs to clean out our fridge but that wasn't going to happen today,and Mom was lucky getting what little she did get done.
Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and gave us our bean mix,then she got a call from my dad,he's been calling Mom all night long,to tell her that she should be staying home today and not going out as the weather is really bad out there.It was pouring rain all night and has been since all day yesterday.The wind is really strong,moving the branches of the trees all the way down and up.The rain has since changed to snow and everything is getting covered with white heavy wet snow,its already getting icy out there and the temperatures are going to drop which will make everything treacherous on the roads.Our highs for the day are 35 with the lows of 24 and right now its 32.It's a very dark as night day here,dismal,dreary and windy.Skin sis called to tell Mom that they took her off the floral arrangements(she's a florist)and have her on the registers as all the silly people are flooding in to buy groceries in the storm.You would think they would stay home in such hazardous weather conditions.Dad already told Mom a car slid off the road and went into the woods.Our end of town is the worst he told us,he's been out driving around inspecting the roads his fellow employees have been plowing and salting.They changed the forecast from 1-3 inches to 3-5 inches and its snowing so fast and furious here and the wind is making the view so hard to see anything but white outside the windows.It will be another dark boring day here while Mom works around the house but she's home with us and we're happy!
Mom had just sat down to finish more of our notes a little before 4:30pm when all of a sudden everything went down,no power and Mom had to hurry and shut the computers off.The house quickly started to get cold and Mom ran into our room,it was getting really dark and grabbed us and wrapped us up in Dixie's blanket and put her coat on top of that.Mom tried using the landline phone to call EverSource to tell them that we had no power and the phone wouldn't work.Mom had no way to communicate with anyone as the cordless phones don't work when the power is out.Its a good thing that Nana called Mom as skin bro was trying to get in touch with Mom and he called Nana.Nana then had to him that I had no power and was having a problem with the phone.He finally called Mom,skin bro usually communicates with Mom thru IM but of course Mom had to shut down both computers before there was a major problem.He was having a hard time getting home from work with all the plows on the road,quite a number of accidents and police cars etc blocking the roads off,a car went into the woods and another was a roll over on the expressway and another accident was on a road nearby h

  Hi Gus
Did you know that if you put hot pepper on the bird food, it won't bother the birds at all but all mammals will get their tongues burned and leave it alone?

Well, Mom went to the GI doc yesterday, and as expected she will need to have an endoscopy. He also wants to put in a small wireless device that measures pH to monitor her acid for 2-3 days, but Mom is pretty sure the insurance people will not approve that. It is very leading edge, and insurance is always trailing edge.

It was warm enough for a sunbath today (73), but the wind is absolutely howling out there. I do not like the wind, so I am staying inside. It is supposed to be even warmer tomorrow and for the next week or so. Surely this wind will die down, and I will be able to catch some rays.

Today was the last day to enter the pic contest for the Valentine's Milonga. Entries will be closed in a couple of hours, but we have some wonderful pics entered, eggspecially in the Couples category. You can see the names of the entries now, and we will put up the pics by this evening. We are still missing one pic, but hopefully will have it in time.

  HELLO FROM FINNEGAN
Hiya Gus,
Yes, those raccoons can be real rascals. That reminds Momma of a book she read called called "Rascal" by Sterling North. It's a great true story about a boy who had a pet raccoon. It was published a long time ago, but is still available through the library. I think your Mom would really like it.

  Hi Gus
That probably is a raccoon!
We had a few snow flurries this morning, but it's all clear and sunny now. It's supposed to warm into the mid 40s tomorrow, too, but today's high is only around 38. It's been a mild winter so far.
This morning mom and Asmita, another volunteer, had the Runs to clean. That is an area where some of the education animals live, and there are some rehab patients in there too. The education animals in there are the turkey vultures, Sid, Vince, and Tony, and the 5 turtles. There are also some snapping turtles in there, a beautiful male mallard, a porcupine, and a broad winged hawk. It's always an interesting place to clean, because you never know who's going to be in there.
Mom is going out to dinner tonight with her sister, but she's ours for the rest of the day. We put some of our latest reads on the library page for anyone who's interested. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

It's Sawyer.
Dad had an early appointment at the wound center yesterday so we were unable to blog with all of you. Sorry about that. Dad's leg continues to improve. Dad is having only a small amount of pain now. In fact, if he's busy with stuff he forgets all about it.
Mom and dad went to the movies yesterday and saw "The Good Dinosaur". What a wonderful movie! The animation was incredible and the story line was beautiful. Even dad got a little misty eyed. After the movie they went to Costco to pick up some stuff for dinner and some already cooked and pealed eggs. Mom and dad are making deviled eggs to take to mom's brother's house for a Super Bowl Sunday BBQ.
Today will be clear, with a high of 75 and a low of 51. No more rain in sight for at least another week.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

Thats too bad about the wild bird feeder. It does sound like a very happy raccoon thats getting to it. Sure hope your dad can find a place where the birds can get to it and not the raccoon!

  Hi, Gus
Gosh, who'd think there would be so many choices for the blizzard at a place that's not strictly selling ice cream. Guess have to make up mind before ordering so don't hold up anyone.

Never know if some other closer place might just carry that roll butter. Won't hurt to ask and if go on a trip an hour away can always get some at the other location.

Hmmm, hope your dad can find a new place for that suet so the wild birds can eat. Know other critters need to eat too but that stuff's for avians.

  Guess what came yesterday ?
The most darling (and first) Valentine from you and mom ! We love the canning jar ! Is that cricut or cuttlebug ? Mom has a small er canning jar for her cuttlebug and already pulled it out to try and figure out if she could put something similar together . . .

It's Friday ! That means it's almost the weekend :) Even better ? Mom has just next week and then it's mid-winter break - a whole week off ! She enjoys this one lots cause there's nothing much to do but relax and play (with me of course !)

School spirit day so mom has to find her gold sweater this morning (school colors are blue and gold) . . . the kids have just a half day and then it's the faculty meeting. Hopefully there isn't too much on the agenda and she'll be home early !

The weather is still mild - a little chillier and the weather guessers are talking a dusting for Tuesday - but nothing big ! Don't mind old man winter so much like this !

At our old up north home, we had a black bear raiding the bird feeders! Could be squirrels ... they were the worst at stealing bird food.
We had another sunny day of 83. But tonight, the rain came ... at least everything got watered. It will be getting cooler again down to the 60's. Hope we get another warm up soon.

  Hi Gus
mom spent all afternoon grooming our older cat. first she tried to get as many mats off of him without pulling her hurting him. she tried to cut them in half and then pull them apart and then try and brush them out. one of the mats had a stick in it. then mom gave him a bath with tearless conditioning cat shampoo and then put a coconut cat conditioner in his fur. then she tried to brush some more mats out. then after she towel dried him she blow dried him and he seemed to enjoy that. his fur wasn't dirty at all and he doesn't look any different after all that but he must feel better. then mom wanted to brush him some more but she misplaced his brush or else he hid it from mom so she would stop. then after dinner she gave me a nice shower and then bow dried me. my feather feel very soft now and i spent about an hour preening myself after wards.

  Hello Gus~
I hope you had a wonderful day! It was busy around here but that was just because of puppy duty. McKenzie got into a lot of trouble today. She just couldn't seem to sit still. Mom was chasing after her most of the day! She still is! McKenzie just doesn't want to leave Merlin alone. Mom doesn't want to keep Merlin locked up all day and McKenzie really needs to learn to leave him alone.
I decided she was looking pretty hungry so I started throwing seeds, nuts and pellets down for her! Mom didn't think it was a very good idea. She swept it up and by the time she dumped it, I had thrown more down. Mom swept it up again and then dumped the rest. I got some veggie instead. That was my plan all along!hahahahaha
Obviously, we didn't get much else done. Mom was working on cleaning the oven. Since we don't use any chemicals around here it takes a bit longer to do. She should be able to finish it up tomorrow.
That is very strange about the suet feeders. Maybe it is a raccoon. Guess he was just hungry too! I hope moving them makes them easier for the birds to get too! It's very awesome that your parronts help them out!
I hope you enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Gus
Mom went over to see her granddaughter Olivia for 3 hrs to discuss her science fair project. Mom had the nerve to put me in lockdown! Livi is so excited to be growing crystals for her project! Mom showed her different crystals on websites. They are going to do at least 10-12 different crystals. Mom said that I don't get to help at all...how rude! She said that boiling water and birdies don't mix! For the crystals that will be made using chemicals will be done over at Livi's house...NEVER any chemicals used around me! Mom is going supply shopping tomorrow and Livi & she will start working on crystals over the weekend. The science fair is on March 7th, so hopefully they will get a lot made by then!

I hope your day was a good one!
Love & a vote
From your friend

  Hi Gus
Those poor birds having their suet cages thrown to the ground and eaten up like that!We have our suet feeder out and it doesn't seem like the birds are even bothering with it!In fact they aren't even touching any of our feeders here and usually my dad can't keep up with them with filling the feeders and Mom can't buy wild bird seed fast enough!Its so good of your sweet daddy to care and try and find a different spot for their suet feeder!Those poor birdies won't be getting much food if the raccoon's keep getting into it!Mom and dad can't understand why the wild birds aren't eating from our feeders like they have been lately!Nana bought the new Lemon Celestial Seasonings tea and she said the flavor isn't there anymore like it used to be.How sad they change things and give you less flavor while increasing the price of the product!
Another dark,dreary,dismal rainy day here.Our highs for the day will be 53 the lows of 35 and its 54 right now.After Mom got dad off to work,she got us up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us a good breakfast that Nana sent home for us of spaghetti and meatballs!It was quite a nice change from our usual bean mix.Mom will be working on making zucchini pizza and getting some more of the linen closet cleaned out as its really beginning to get so messy.There are so many things that have to be taken out of there.We get to have Mom for today and even though she'll be busy getting more chores done,we're just happy she's here with us!My dad just called and told Mom that he's got to go to work at 3:00am Friday morning to prepare for the snow storm that we're supposed to be getting.So that means a fast night for my dad,he's got to come home from work,have dinner and shower and go right to bed in order to get up for 2:00am.Mom will make sure he has fresh sandwiches made and his lunch cooler box is filled with things to last till he gets home on Friday night(hopefully).
Other than that its going to be a nice boring day here with Mom and we can't complain about that!Skin bro came over around dinner time and spent time with us for awhile.Mom gave him the rest of the goodies that she and skin sis baked on Sunday,Mom had to get them outta the house as they were too tempting for her.Skin bro was happy to get them.He sure could use them!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses fir nt sweet Frother and a vote for you too!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

  Hi Gus
Well, it is very sunny here, but not warm enough for a sunbath with a high of only 65 degrees. Tomorrow is supposed to hit 71, but it will be cloudy. Who knows? However the weekend onward it will be sunbath city for at least a week-10 days!! Not a drop of rain in sight though, and since Feb is normally So Cal's wettest month of the year this is not good. Where did El Nino go? Come back, we need you!!

More entries to the Milonga pic contest, and it is really shaping up nicely. So glad everybirdy is wanting to participate.

Mom goes to see her GI doc this afternoon, since the insurance is FINALLY straightened out and working. Her acid reflux is back, and it shouldn't be, but then she didn't go back for that final endoscopy. He will probably yell at her. Oh well...

  Hey Gus,
Well, so far we've gone to the north shore of Oahu and seen the big 24 foot waves and boy was it windy! :)

Today we are going to Hanauma Bay (pronounced Hanau-ma). It's a nice cove that's a fish and aquatic sanctuary. It used to be free but now everyone has to pay to go in.

Mom has passed by and from the hill looking down the water is prestine blue and clear. Before you could feed the fishes and they sold frozen peas for you to feed the fishes. Mom heard that all the fishes are tame since they are fed regularly. They come up and rub your legs as you are in the water. Never heard of anyone getting bitten by them tame fish. You never know one might just get a little too greedy and take a chunk of flesh to see if it tastes good.

Anywho, maybe when one of the BC parronts come down to Hawaii, mom will actually have a reason to go there and feed the fishies.

The picture of Hanauma Bay is in my gallery thanks to Cookie's mom, Momma Mary. :)

Love and warm hugs to ya'll in the cold states.

Also a vote for you.

Aloha a Hui ho! Till. Tomorrow! :)
