  Hello Gus~
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!!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Gus
Apparently I didn't hear Mom leave for the gym yesterday, because Dad said I did my "Mom Call" right after she left, so he stuck his head in my room. I was in the outside carrier all ready to go out for my sunbath! Of course, no mom plus it was in the 90s, so it didn't happen. Oh well, timing is everything.

Well, I haven't done any more biting, and I actually turned cuddly last night. In fact, I insisted on giving Mom kisses till she was started to get annoyed. However she kept kissing me back, so I was happy. Didn't even give in to the temptation to nip her lips when they were right there and ever so bitable.

It is stay home Thursday, but apparently Mom didn't get the memo. She was gone for almost 90 minutes between the library, getting her feathers cut and finally getting a bath for Gloria. Now Mom says that was record time, but I say she should not leave at all! She did point out that the library books she picked up will be read in my room. Hmmm, guess I might give her a pass.

However she did her best to make it up to me. She fixed another mini pastrami and pepper jack cheese sandwich for lunch. She uses the little pieces from the end of the loaf, but since all I care about is the 'strami, who cares how much bread is there? Yum!!

  HELLO FROM FINNEGAN
Hi Gus,
Thanks for vote #4900! As of today I have only 96 more to go. It’s been so beautiful here! Temps in the 70’s…perfect! Coco has learned the meaning of the word “GLOVE”. So now when Momma asks him to step up and he doesn’t want to, Momma just has to ask him if he wants her to get the “GLOVE”. He has become quite co-operative in such a short time, and he’s quiet! Can you imagine a ‘too who’s quiet?? Last night when she put him to bed, he called “Mama” for about 5 min. and then went to sleep. Momma keeps waiting for him to change, but so far, so good! He actually seems to be getting even better. If he keeps this up, he’ll soon be as good as I am! Hope your day is great!
Love and Hugs from Finnegan

  Hi Gus
Nice new pic! Mom bought a watermelon last week that was not very good. Hopefully the next one will be better.
Well, today we are heading to Jellystone Park from the KB. Be prepared with your swimsuit, floaties, rafts, and other things. We might just run into Yogi Bear and Booboo Bear, so if you have a picnic basket, hold onto it! The ranger may not be able to save it or you from a raid.
Today at home, it's a beautiful, hot, and sunny day again. Mom will be going to the pool, and afterwards, going to the hardware store to see if she can find one of those scrunchy hoses, since she's tired of the hose caddy that leaks at the faucet every time she hooks it up. She still has one of those old Toro flat hoses, but it's not long enough, so she's hoping to attach one of those pocket hoses to it.
Mom also got in touch with her nephew who will do some outdoor stuff for her in the next couple of weeks. She decided she's too old to pressure wash and waterproof the deck (read; she doesn't want to do it!). The split rail fence is having some issues, and the porch roof needs to be swept off. Again, this is something she really doesn't want to do. She's always been a bit afraid of climbing out the bedroom window to clean that roof.
So, today is swimming, hardware store, and maybe Panera for a dinner sandwich. I hope you are enjoying a beautiful summer day too, and getting some fresh air, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Corn on the cob is so yummy. Any mess is well worth it.

The parronts noticed the flies would eventually land on the screen. So, they would just quietly and quickly as they could shut the window and trap 'em. So hard to swat 'em and figure out where the, ahem, body landed to clean up.

That is good you got to visit when skinsis and the grand came over. Know you sometimes are too loud and get sent to your condo. We're sure they all appreciated your opinion and joining in the conversation.

Thanks for liking the wedding pics. Mom was unhappy as she had a camisole and half slip and they bunched up in her middle ... just what she doesn't need!!! But the rest of the wedding was beautiful.
Lots of happy tears that day ... dad had a very hard time worse than mom I think.
Not much going on here today ... back to normal. While we were gone, the new neighborlings decided to have a very loud and wild party. At least 5 neighborlings called to complain .... and I missed this! This is usually a very quiet area around here. I say we show them how birdies party ... hehehe.

A belated thanks for stopping by to wish me a Happy Hatchday last week! I had a wonderful day! Mom made me birdie bread, and I got a new toy and had a photoshoot! We are still enjoying the birdie bread, because mom made 2 loaves and froze some of it. Today mom brought me outside while she swam, so I got to enjoy some fresh air and sunshine! I really enjoy screeching at the wild birds, LOL. Goodnight! Hugs, Peatree

My Mom does the same thing whenever we're on the deck and she has to go inside the house for something my dad will stay with us until she comes back out.We will miss you tomorrow and hope that everything goes fine wherever you need to be!We appreciate you letting us know as we do worry about you when you're not on!
It was good you got to get your sunbath today!You have to take advantage of all the good days we get for going outside!How wonderful Aunt Jinky brought you back some fruit from the fruit stand,I just love fresh fruit and my Mom brought me back a big container of mixed fresh fruits!
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 77 the lows of 66 and right now at 7:30pm its 74.After Mom got dad off to work,she got our bean mix ready and then got us up early,cleaned our cages,fed us our bean mix and swept our room.Then she harnessed both Dixie and Candida and got them in their car seat and took off to Nana's.We were settled in our cages there and Nana had some fresh bean mix she made waiting for them.Then Nana got Mom a waffle ready and Mom poured herself some tea and while they ate skin sis came over.They both got into skin sis's car and went to Roche Bros. grocery store in Mashpee and Mom got 3 cases of bottled water a 28/pack for $1.88 each it was a one day sale only today,Nana got 2 cases.They got a few other things that were marked down and then went back to Nana's to drop the cases of water off so they'd be room in skin sis's trunk.Then from there they went into Falmouth to the hearing aid place so Nana could get her new hearing aids.Nana got to test drive them but couldn't take them home because she didn't bring back the first pair she had gotten.Now Mom will bring Nana up on Friday to get her hearing aids.Then from there they went to Hyannis to got to KAM Appliance to see about Nana's refrigerator,it still hasn't been working and is freezing up water in the fridge,and condensation is now in the fridge.The manager wasn't there and the employee there promised to call Nana when he came in.Nana was none too happy.From there they went to Subway to have lunch and the traffic was outrageous,there was some kind of accident on the Bridge as they were heading over to Sagamore to go to Market Basket.Mom bought some fresh fruit to share with us,10 packages of frozen veggies and we get the corn from that,and a package of eclairs.Mom got some breakfast sausages for dad's dinner when she needed something fast for dinner on her late nights.From there they went back to The Mills to drop off Mom's stuff in her freezer and then they went to The Plum Porch a little touristy place that sells all kinds of jewelry,beach stuff and other things.Then they went back to Nana's and unloaded skin sis's car and had some dessert and cold water with Nana.Mom cleaned out Dixie and Candida's cages,got their harnesses back on and in the car seat and they went home after that.It was well after 5:00pm and it took Mom almost an hour to get hom

  Heya, Gus!
Love your new picture!! Very patriotic!

Bet you enjoyed some of that fresh fruit your Mom picked up. Did the watermelon have seeds? I LOVE those!

Today was laundry day (again!) so I supervised from a distance. It was in the mid-70's, and partly cloudy. Nice to have the patio doors open.

Mom chatted with Kim on the phone. She was so happy she got a recliner that is motorized and will help her get up. She says it has two motors--one to get up, the other for the legs. She also bought her hubby a recliner, but not motorized. That will free up a lot of room in her living room once the big couch is out of there. She was really happy, too, as she walked well at the store yesterday. Mom may go see her on Friday. If not she will get there next week for sure.

Other than that, nothing else happening here. Nice quiet humpday!

Wing hugs coming your way,
Your buddy,

OH I HATE WHEN THE BC LOOSES OUR BLOGS. MOM GOT OUR COMPUTER UP AND WORKING ON FRIDAY WHEN SHE CALLED THE APPLE COMPANY. MOM HAS TO TAKE IT IN TO GET CHECKED OUT. THERE MAY BE A APROBLEM WITH THE MOTHER BOARD AND IF CAN'T GET FIXED, WILL NEED A NEW COMPUTER.

IT WAS A BIT WARMER TODAY AND THERE WAS NO BREEZE AT ALL. MOM DIDN'T SLEEP LAST NIGHT SO SHE WAS VERY TIRED. SO WE DID NOT GET A SUNBATH. HOPE MOM GETS SOME SLEEP TONIGHT.

HOPE YOUR DAY WENT WELL. I THINK MOM NEEDS TO GO BUY US A WATERMELON.

  Hi Gus
Well, fortunately the bite on Mom's hand turned out not to be painful for as long as she thought it would. So our afternoon and evening were quite friendly. I do enjoy my "go to bed ritual", and Mom followed it precisely. If she doesn't do everything just in the exact proper order I pitch a fit, but last night she performed it perfectly.

Then this morning she hoped to get me outside at 9AM, but it was already 80 degrees. She just said the heck with it, because I had already made it clear I was not in a cooperative mood. I haven't even sat on her shoulder yet today, and here it is after 11. Very unusual for me, since I am normally a cuddler.

Wednesday is the day Mom goes to the gym in the afternoon from 4-6, although she has been coming home a little earlier since she can't finish the whole hour at zumba these days. She did her normal Monday routine yesterday, since Talyah didn't have the Monday spot available. Mom had forgotten how much more she enjoyed the Tuesday zumba over the class on Monday (different teachers). So if she ever hears back from Becky about Sunday afternoons, she might be training with her privately on Sunday, doing yoga and zumba on Tuesday, and training with Talyah at the gym followed by zumba on Wednesday afternoon and Friday morning. What is wrong with this picture? Too much time away from me!!

And now she says she needs to get her feathers cut tomorrow, which is our day off. (Yes, I know she is retired, but normally every other Thursday is an all Kiddo day). That also means a trip to the library and a bath for Gloria since they are all near each other. She could be gone for more than an hour!! Unacceptable. I think she needs another bite!

Hi Gus,
No, Coco hasn't taught me any new words. I actually know most of the words he says, except his name. Although Momma is trying to get me to say "Hello Coco". I know lots of words that he doesn't know though, so maybe I could teach him to say, "Go poopie".

  Hi Gus
We don't like the flies either. It's neat that mom gives you corn on the cob.
The kissing booth field trip at Yellowstone should wrap up today, so stop by and see what other adventures we have in store. Yogi Bear and Jellystone park, anyone?
What a difference a day makes! Yesterday and the day before were oppressively humid and hot, and today it's not even 70 and cloudy. The guys said 74 and partly sunny today, so it's warming slowly. It's not raining though and we could use some again.
Last night mom and her sister went to Red Lobster for dinner. Neither of them could finish the meal, and neither of them would take shrimp home. It's never the same warmed over, is it? The funny thing was they were looking at a berry dessert and talking about splitting it before they ordered. Of course, not being members of the clean plate club, not to mention stuffed, they didn't get the dessert.
It's not going to be a very interesting day today, but that's fine with us. It means when mom gets home from the pool, she'll be ours for the rest of the day, and by then, we'll have rearranged our cages to our liking as well.
I hope you are having a great summer day, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi, Gus
If summer is hot then need the a/c in the car as just too uncomfy without. Continues hotish here but there was a lil cool breeze so that helped. Good your humidity went down so could get outside for the sunbath.

Love corn on the cob. The juice does squirt a tad, but so yummy.

The parronts here will open a window when a fly gets in. After awhile they will land on the screen and parront will shut the window and gets trapped inside. So much easier than the fly swatter.

  hey Gus !
The last couple days all over BC on my visits I've been hitting --999 numbers and just missing the nice big round ones !

Happy humpday ! That is if it matters . . . it doesn't to me during the summer cause mom is home ! Yesterday's rain ended early, but it never really cleared up - the day remained overcast with thick hard to breathe air. At least the grass isn't brown and crunchy anymore !

Even when taking Landon to gym it was still yucky, and that's at 3:30 ! He won't get in mom's new car through the door any more - he wants to go in through the "trunk" to get to his car seat ! Silly boy ! Hopefully today's weather will be a little better. By the weekend it's supposed to be beautiful for all the cookouts, etc. Mom and dad missed their walk two days in a row now . . .

Don't forget to go try your wing again at NAME THAT TUNE on page 231616 ! New songs every week ! Glad aunt Jinky got the car a/c fixed for the summertime - mom often wonders how she got through as a kid without it !

Have a great day buddy - love Cookie

  Hi Gus,
Well I'm a little bad, but mom always catches me. :0

I step up pretty good but I get tired and mom says she wants me to step up and get some eggcercize. Then I get bored doing that so I take off towards Laka's tree, again.

Mom says that my tree will be ready for me to go venture in this weekend so I'm happy. :)

I'll have mom take a picture once I find my favorite perch. She still has to put my toys on the tree too.

She's hoping that I will be a good boy and that time will tell till I can be free all day like my fister Laka. She's never locked in her cage even if she's bad. Mom says she's well trained not to go off her tree or her cage.

Ahhh to be free.......one day. :)

The wedding went very well. Mom can't wait to get pics. They said it could take 3 months :( ................ why???
Mom wishes she could change a few things about her appearance. But everything else was perfect. The food and cake were very good. The pianist Lauren, was so wonderful.
My parronts went to the beach this morning. They said the ocean was warmer than our pool. The water was calm and clear ... a very nice beach day. Until the big nasty t-storm hit. They were soaked getting into the house. There was a lot of standing water around too. I viewed all this from my nice comfy bed.

I GUESS WITH THE BC HAVING TROUBLES, BLOGS WERE LOST. WE WERE GETTING KIND OF WORRIED WHEN WE DIDN'T HEAR FROM YOU.

THE PAST 3 DAYS HERE WERE VERY HOT AND HUMID BUT TODAY WAS SUCH A CHANGE. IT WAS COOL AND BREEZY. MID 70'S WITH THE SUN SHOWING UP ONCE IN AWHILE. MOM SAID IT WAS TOO COOL FOR US TO GO OUTSIDE BUT TOMORROW SHOULD BE UPPER 70'S SO THAT SHOULD BE BETTER FOR SUNBATHING.

I GOT MY NAILS AND WINGS CLIPPED AT THE VETS YESTERDAY AND I AM NOT TOO HAPPY. IT HAS PUT A DAMPER ON MY FLYING SKILLS. I NOW CAN'T FLY FORM THE TOP OF MY CAGE ONTO THE WINDOW COUNTER BETWEEN THE KITCHEN AND LIVING ROOM. I KEEP HITTING THE FLOOR.

OH I HATE WHEN THOSE FLIES GET IN THE HOUSE. MOM SAYS IGNORE THEM AS THEY WILL DIE IN 24 HOURS ANYWAY.

  Hi Gus
well we couldn't blog last night because we had no internet. yesterday mom spent lots of time at the office store xeroxing documents, then she spent time at triple A having a notary stamp papers, then she went and bought more file folders then she went back to the office store and xeroxed some more and then went to the post office to mail poa letters to health insurance and mail order pharmaceutical company for g-ma. then a guy came this morning from the Pa dept ar agriculture and sprayed the hemlocks for red spider mite infestation which he said was kiling the hemlocks. mom was very upset because she doesn't like any kind of insecticide. this morning she went to ss and it only took about 5 minutes to change Gmas mail to our house and when SS lady asked for a verification document mom had all of them with her and had to go through everything to find what the lady wanted. when mom came home she spent the rest of the day weeding the along the side of the road and trimming it with a scissor. then some guys came and cut down all 5 of our rhododendrons that were about 25 feet tall. because the the dept of pa agriculture said they had a fungus called root rot which was killing everything so they will be treating the soil next week for that. tomorrow will be a nightmare because tall timber tree co is coming to cut down 3 trees. the 50' oak will take them about 5 hours to bring down and the other 2 not too much time. mom and dad had the place looking absolutely perfect today and mom said for what. tomorrow it will look like a total disaster. mom has some babies in one bird house and figures she will just stand somewhere safe holding the bird house so the mom will come and feed the babies. hopefully the men will dig up a few of the shrubs before they bgin so they won't get damage. the tree is only about 15 feet from the house and there could potentially be damage to the house as well. anyway might not be online since a branch might cut off our power.

Oh you know I will avoid any work. My job is to be cute!

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

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

Wing hugs coming your way!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Gus
Today was even nicer here so sunny and in the low 70's just perfect. It's going down to the low 50's tonight my mom says that's going to be great sleeping weather.
Oh I love getting corn on the cob too and also get it smashed all over my beak which then my mom likes to take embarrassing pictures of me. Have a good night buddy.

  Hi Gus
Mom and I think that's so awesome that you have towns with actual states names!Our towns are mostly Indian names and most of our street names are Indian names here.Mom and Nana have found the same thing with the fresh fruit here also.Its not as good as it should be and they get rotten really quickly also which is a waste when you have to throw them all away like that as they aren't cheap either!That corn on the cob really sounds good and we all love that!You must've looked so cute with the corn stuck all over your beakie like that!Whenever I have any kind of food stuck on my beakie I love to wipe my beak off on Mom's shirt or pants!Oh we just hate those flies coming into our house also.Fly swatters aren't that good,my Mom has one of those tennis racket bug zappers and they work really well,but when Mom or dad smacks a moth with them it makes a spark and burns the bug and you can smell burnt bug!Oh you gotta watch that flyswatter and make sure your daddy doesn't get you instead of the fly!Mom and dad have been eating on the deck whenever they can which has been every night and we get to join them as long as the temperatures haven't dropped by then.
This morning was a dismal dark,dreary looking day with our highs for the day of 75 the lows of 65 and right now its 74 under dark cloudy skies.There's no sun at all and it looks like its going to rain any minute.Mom got dad off to work and then she did some chores and then got us all up and cleaned our cages.She had to take Candida's cage all apart because she's back to chewing up all the paper and cardboard Mom has over her grate.That took a long time for Mom to clean and sweep all the debris out from under the grate and the sides of the cage before she could put back fresh cardboard and paper.And then all the toys Mom has on the cage floor to keep her from getting the whole thing torn up.After Mom finished with Candida's cage she gave us our bean mix.We are going to have an uneventful day here again today with Mom just finishing up some chores and vacuuming the house.We are happy about that as it keeps Mom here with us.We are so hoping to see some sun today so we can go outside for our shower and sun bath.
We never got out for a sunbath but the sun finally appeared late in the day around 5:00pm and we all got to join Mom and Dad on the deck for a wonderful dinner.Mom gave us both some mashed potatoes,peas and corn and did we just love being outside to watch all the wild birds,squirrels and rats and chipmunks!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and a vote for my kissing cousin!Loving you always and forever,your kissing cousin Dixie

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

  Hi Gus
I tried to squawk out to you and Suzi at the Milonga on Saturday, but the site was not cooperating. Hopefully it will behave this weekend. Had a good day with my frother Baldrick staring down the big guy Josh. we have him so intimidated he won't come out of his house until mom comes into our room. So dad cut up that watermelon, so let;s get to it! Love and winghugs, Charlie

  Hi Gus
Well, I had one shot at a sun bath today, and that was if I cooperated at 8:45 when Mom tried to get me into my outside carrier. I didn't, and by 9:15 it was already 80 outside and heating up quickly. So doomed to stay inside again today. (We hit 94 today, and since it's cloudy it is kinda muggy.)

Mom left for the gym at 10:15 and didn't get home until 12:45. Now that is just too long. I think this whole thing of working out with her trainer and then doing zumba (even if she only lasted 45 minutes) is cutting into time that belongs to me! Somebirdy please tell her to straighten up!

As soon as she was done with her (cool) shower she came in for Kiddo time, so that was good. And then after a little while she went and made a fruit smoothie for us to share. She would let me help, but that blender scares the tailfeathers off of me! I do like the smoothies though. Very tasty!

After that Mom decided to fix my toy that I had chewed the bell off of (the best part!). Unfortunately I thought she was stealing my toy, and I bit her really hard on the spot between her thumb and first finger. Apparently that spot really hurts when you bite it, so Mom took my toy and left. Hey! Anyway she did bring it back after it was fixed, so I guess we forgive each other.

  HELLO FROM FINNEGAN
Hi Gus,
It sure is nice to have your A/C working when it's so hot. We all stayed in the a/c most of the day yesterday except for about an hour in the morning and an hour or so late in the day when the weather was cooling down. Today it’s only supposed to get up to 73 degrees so it’s definitely a porch day! Coco and I have been out there for a couple of hours already. Coco is doing really well. He's a good little talker. Momma thinks that's why he doesn't scream. The most annoying thing that he does is call for either her or Daddy for long periods of time...as in Ma-ma or Da-da. However, Momma learned how to curb that, too. She runs the vacuum for a minute or two, not even near his cage, just so that he can hear it because he doesn't like the sound of the vacuum. He does it mostly at night after Momma puts him to bed. During the day when he calls, she calls back, but after a couple of times she says Coco's a good boy and that usually gets him talking. Momma says she knows that he's only been here for 10 days, but so far, he's an awfully good little 'too! She can hardly believe it. She only hopes it'll last. Hope your day is great!
Love and Hugs from Finnegan

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

  Hi, Gus
That is good to have the car a/c working again. Dad had to get freon put into the truck a/c a couple of times so now it works better. Doesn't use that vehicle much so not sure why he bothered. If on a longish trip and hot out then a/c really makes it more pleasant.

Just never know what might be going on the laptops. Glad your mom got hers fixed.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  hi Gus and aunt Jinky
It was supposed to rain overnight, but started instead around 5:00 last night. Of course getting dark early like that confused me and by 7:00-7:30 I started squawking for my goodnightbird nutriberry. It's supposed to continue this morning and then start to clear up in the afternoon . . . the grass is happy !

I sure hope it clears up cause the g'nephew's gym class changed to Tuesday for the summer so I'll be on my own for a couple of hours . . . plus mom wants to run to Bird Jungle as I'm all out of my hot chili peppers - I love to leave pepper dust in my wake as I crunch my way through those !

I'm glad that the a/c in the car was an easy fix - Have a wonderful day - love Cookie

Come visit me, Cookie ready for the 4th of July, BC Library Now Open & Fly with the angels my Sally.

  Hi my love, ♥
we had a wonderful time at the Milonga even if it was rescheduled until next Saturday. hehe

Another really hot day here, in the mid 90s which is about 10 degrees warmer than normal.

I loved kayaking, the water was so refreshing and lunch was yummy.

Love you so much, SuziQ XOXOXO

  Hi Gus
It's too hot down here for me to go outside. So I get to go sit by the patiodoors to look out. Sometimes mom opens the door so I can hear my bird friend Molli and see Bunni.
We have lots of laundry to do now after the trip.
I'm back! I had my 5 sleeps at vet-camp. The report was a well behaved bird. Mom came around the corner and when I saw her, I was all eggcited and called out to her. I was so happy to see my parronts. Mom held me while dad packed my stuff. So good to be home. My skinsis is married now and the wedding was beautiful. There were two other flower girls but, I know that I did a very good job. Even Luna (Jess's corgi) walked down the aisle. She went crazy at rehearsal trying to get to Jess (my skinsis) but was perfect during the wedding. When everyone clapped for Jess & Jeff, she barked her congrats one time. We are all trying to catch up on our sleep.
Hugs
Chyna

Come visit me, Derby Farms, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.
