  Hi Gus
Well, Mom sure is enjoying her car radio. Eggspecially since on the way to her arthritis massage with Mattea, the off ramp was closed and traffic slowed to a crawl. Mom took the next exit, which was only 1 mile away, but it took her 10 minutes to get there since she never made it out of 1st gear. Just imagine how nuts she would have been without a radio!! She was late for her appointment, but fortunately it was a slow day for Mattea, and she didn't mind.

Mom joined me to read for a bit when she got home, and now we are trying blogging with me on her shoulder. So far, so good, and I am behaving. How long will that last? We shall see!

Then it will be lunch time, and I am hoping for something with pasta. Mom won't let me have any cake, but she did stick her finger in the Cool Whip and let me lick it off. Yum!! Dad has already eaten half the cake!! What a glutton! Although we must admit he doesn't get sweets very often, so I guess this is a special treat for him.

Becky had to cancel her session with Mom yesterday, because she got stuck in downtown L.A. traffic and couldn't make it back in time. Mom went to the gym anyway, and she managed to hurt her left shoulder working out by herself. She passed on zumba, but she did leave cake for her friends. Becky promised to swing by the gym and pick up hers. And of course, Dad harassed Mom about hurting herself when she came home early, but I was so happy to see her I gave her lots of kisses. You know which one she preferred!

We love our solar lights, too. They are always fun to see at night, especially the ones that change color.
Congratulations to my brother Willie on getting to 20k votes, and to my friend Chyna for making her 30k votes! The party at the HOF should be in full swing right now. We're heading back there as soon as our blogs are done.
Mom had 2 tours again today. The first was with sixth grade on biomes and climate change. They were great! It was an all girl group, because the teacher had separated them out that way. Mom thinks that's a good idea for 6 and up, because then the girls aren't shy about answering and asking questions. The second group was fourth grade in dinosaurs. One of the chaperones was a former docent! Mom knew her well, so had her help out with the touchable skulls during the tour. Those kids were fantastic! But you knew mom would say that: 4th grade, dinosaurs...
Today after we're finished, mom is going to water the plants, hopefully finish planting all the other stuff Jeff brought over last night, and get the house plants outside for their summer vacation. After that she's ours for the day/night! Tomorrow we have birdicures scheduled, yuck!
I hope you are having that fine weather like we are having here, low 80s, sunny, and beautiful. Have a fun day, get lots of cuddles and scritches, too. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Gus
It's Sawyer.
Yesterday morning, when dad tried to log onto the BC none of the pages would open. Today it seems to be fine.
On Monday mom and dad left home again and went to the movies. They saw The Criminal. It was a good movie. They did come home at a decent hour and spent time with us while they fixed dinner.
On Tuesday they stayed home most of the day but went out to their favorite Mexican restaurant, Senior Compo's. It was Chamber of Commerce night and the police chief and the two station captains waited on them. Their friend, Bob was there, too. This is one of the only times that mom and dad can GIVE the police command staff orders. We were already asleep when they got home.
Yesterday was free taco lunch day at the police station, to honor National Police Week. After stuffing themselves with tacos mom and dad went to visit their friend, Ron who is living in an assisted living home. Dad said he wouldn't mind living there and have everything done for him but they don't allow pets.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 75 and a low of 56. ADT is coming to find out why our alarm system isn't working. When dad had our landline phone disconnected he found that the celluler backup was not working. Dad has had a lot of issues with the system since they upgraded it.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

  Hi, Gus
Our mom's never been good with houseplants. Her mom always has several and mostly they do fine. Dad is good about keeping the ones in the yard trimmed and watered.

Maybe the crafty thing will interest the grand more than skinsis. Mom has shown skinsis how to knit a few times but never really caught on. Maybe one day it will. Since mom's sis crochets the grand can learn that if wants.

Not too long back the street light in front of our house went out. Can't recall who mom called or sent email about it but didn't take long before it was replaced. Think it was blinking so maybe that was the clue it would soon not work at all.

The solar light lawn things are nice. We've had a few of the lights for walkways inside the yard since have the street light that illuminates the driveway.

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

  hi Gus !
Mom did that over Easter - all the winter bedding to the laundry . . .

Happy Thursday :) Boy, it got real warm, real fast here ! Yesterday hit 88 ! The first thing I did when mom got home was take a dip . . . felt real good too ! Daddy dragged the window fans up from downstairs, and tomorrow since she's home, mom will clean the a/c filters and get them ready. And finally get the deck ready for us to go out and sit . . . sheesh - I don't know why she's so slow this year ! Maybe her toes need a nip or two ! !

The countdown continues . . . love Cookie

I'm happy that mom is back for sure. Dad is greyt but mom is better.
SLC was too chilly for mom but it is a beautiful city. Was a good surprise that it was that pretty. Will have to see a bit more at another time. The shopping was great and so was the food. But so happy that when mom landed at midnight ... it was 85 ... ahhhhh!
It was another beautiful FL day. I helped mom around the house. Then I tossed every toy on the floor for mom to pick up. Got to keep her moving. I think we will just hang out around the pool tomorrow.

  Heya, Gus!
Oh, my, it was so humid today! And tomorrow is supposed to be 85 and even worse. We had some storms roll thru. Mom got the air conditioner cover off and the filter washed, so we are ready for it. Mom also wanted to clean her Vornado fan--normally very simple. She called the company and found out they put 3 teeny screws in the front grille that you could barely see, and you needed a long and skinny Phillips screw driver to get them loose. Mom tried and tried, and called the company back, and they are sending her a long Phillips screw driver with a magnetic tip. Of course, Mom did not give up after she hung up the phone--and finally got those little buggers unscrewed! Getting them back in after she cleaned the grill and the fan was another story. What an adventure! The old fan she had was wonderful. Simple to take apart. This one is another story!

And Mom did the bedding today, too! Had to get the lighter weight comforter out, so she did all the bedding stuff and rotated the mattress. Gosh, does she drip when she gets warm! I took a big bath and she took a good shower. Now we are wonderfully clean and fresh!

Have a greyt rest of the night, and wing hugs coming your way!

  for my dad for work.Then they went back to Nana's house and the painter was still there finishing the kitchen.He was trying to find the key hanger that he took off and both Mom and Nana went all over the house looking for it and he had found it but never said a word to either Mom or Nana that he had found it.Mom went out back in Nana's yard and brought the tarp in that was covering her A/C unit all winter and got an errant clothes pin off the line that was keeping her clothesline from rolling the way it should.Then Nana made both Mom and herself some tea and they had a little snack before Mom left to go home.The traffic is really picking up around here now and it takes Mom a good half hour or more just to drive the 15 minute drive from home to Nana's and back again.When Mom got home our dad had given us our snacks and Dad unpacked the car for Mom while she went in to see us and clean our cages out then she put the groceries away and pulled out some of the chicken pot pie she had made on Sunday that she froze into individual dishes for dad's dinner.We got to join them for dinner and Mom gave us some cherries she had bought the other day and were those cherries so good!Candida shared dad with some of his Chicken pot pie and we all got some peanut butter cookie from dad's dessert.Mom is so tired from a long day today and we are waiting to snuggle with her after she helps us get our notes out!

  Hi Gus
Thank you for liking my picture of skin sis and me.She really did a wonderful job on giving me my favorite rubs and massages!Those African Violets and Orchard's are so difficult to maintain.Both Mom and Nana had them and both of theirs died also,no matter what they did for them,even feeding them the food they're supposed to have.So far Mom has been able to get her quilt in the washer with no problem and if its too bulky she won't put too much more laundry in so it won't be to overloaded.Mom can't wait to get her sheets done on Sunday and her quilt and get them all hung up on the line to dry in the nice sunshine.It was good that Aunt Jinky could take her comforter home and get it up on the line to dry in the sunshine!How awesome you got to get your sunbath today and get to watch the electric man change the street light bulb!Those trucks sure are so noisy!It's so much fun to supervise our Mom's when they're outside working on the yard!Your yard must be so pretty now with all those awesome summer decorations that Aunt Jinky set out there!
This morning was a bright sunny morning a little cool to start with but did it ever warm up nicely!Our highs for the day were 76 with the lows of 53 and at 5:30pm its 73.Mom got dad off to work and then she came in and swept our room,cleaned our cages and gave us our bean mix.She gathered some pellets for our cousins who were out of them and brought them to Nana along with an onion she had needed.Then she got in the car and left us here as the painter is still there and Nana's house is utter chaos with everything everywhere.When Mom got there Nana couldn't even make them any tea or coffee because the painter was up on a really tall ladder painting Nana's kitchen a deep color lavendar.The kitchen was a total mess with a long tarp over the counters and things taken off the wall,clock,key holder,bill holder etc.Nana was very upset because the painter guy took things down from the wall in our cousins Bird Room and lost the screws to their over the sink light that Nana has for them.He never put the light back up.Then he wasn't going to do her stairway upstairs wall!He was sporting an attitude today.Mom and Nana left to run some errands and they went to Mashpee first to find some curtains for Nana in Marshall's but found nothing there for bedroom curtains,they went to Falmouth and went to Ocean State Job Lot and looked there but they didn't have anything in the way of curtains for a bedroom either.Mom got a 96 count Kcup box for my dad for work.Then as it was getting late and Nana never had any breakfast they decided to check out a restaurant in Mashpee so Mom drove back to Mashpee and they didn't find anything appetizing to them there so they wound up having a Fro Yo which was right next door.Then from there they went to Stop&Shop and both Mom and Nana got some things.Mom got a bag of apples marked down,a berry torte with fresh blueberries,strawberries,kiwi and raspberries and some french vanilla coffee creamer powder

HI GUS, I DIDN'T GET OUTSIDE FOR MY SUNBATH TODAY AS MOM HAD THINGS TO DO WITH THE G-PARRONTS. THEN IT RAINED.

MOM WOULD LOVE TO PUT OUT SOME SOLAR THINGS BUT LIVING IN A CONDA THE ASSOCIATION IS LIMITING EVERYONE TO JUST THREE ITEMS IN THE FRONT GARDEN AREA AND ONLY THREE PLANTERS WITH PLANTS. SO STUPID AS THE CUTE ANIMAL THINGS MOM HAS ARE SMALL AND YOU CAN'T SEE THEM UNLESS YOU WALK UP TO THE GARDEN AREA.

I AM SO HOPING TO GET OUT FOR A SUNBATH TOMORROW.

  Hey Gus,
Yup, mom and dad did come back with a budgie last night but I didn't hear it chirp till this morning. And mom was worried that I might fly down off my tree and go take a looksie at the new fid.

Dad has been reading the keet books and says that this ones a boy birdie. Cause his cere is blue. Mom has yet to observe the fid and see for herself.

Laka dances around and gives every birdie a candy cigar saying its a "bird"!! :)

Smiling as she passes the candy cigar around and everyone congratulates her on having a new frother, :)

All she can do for now is looksie from afar as the new fid is in quarantine for a month.

Here's a vote for you!

Love,

Well, Gloria is home and has a new radio. The old one could not be repaired, so they put in a new one (not Audi) and added an external component to do the smog stuff the old radio did. It was way cheaper than any other solution, so Mom is satisfied...now if she can just figure out the controls! She has managed to preset buttons for NPR and her two music stations. For more than that she will have to study the manual which is very confusing so far.

No sunbath today, since we are still in the upper 60s. However Mom and I shared a Chicken Poblano lunch, which has pasta so I am a happy boy.

She usually goes to the gym on Wednesday from 4-6, but since she still can't make it all the way thru a zumba class for the full hour, I am eggspecting her home early. Toesies crossed!

Mom usually loses one or two plants over the winter too. This year it was an African violet and a citrus tree.
Today mom had a fourth grade group for PA natural history. They were fantastic! She's a little biased, though. The second group was a bunch of first grade kids doing an animal tour. They had the attention span of goldfish, so it's a good thing they had 4 chaperones for the group. Mom finally gave up and just played I Spy with them in the dioramas of North American and African wildlife. They seemed to like that better.
Mom stopped back at the feed store to pick up the suet that got delivered yesterday afternoon. There was only one kind, and she usually buys a variety. She didn't care, just got 10 of the Nutty treats. Then she stopped for milk before finally making it home where she could change into shorts and a tank top. It's pretty hot outside; the car registered mid 80s and the deck thermometer registered high 70s. So after the blogs are done, I think mom will be out tending the new plants, watering them at least. I hope you are having a fine day today and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi, Gus
Our mom's sis crochets her scrubbies. Said it was a tad tricky to crochet with the two strands but figured out something to make it work. Mom didn't look at it. Probably should have! Mom usually doesn't knit if the grand is over since will grab anything one is holding.

No house plants here or any that need to come in for winter. Well, think some would do better if it wasn't subject to the occasional freeze but if dad hears the warnings will try to cover 'em and really only lost one or two over the years. Other times only parts of the bush would need to be cut off and the remainder would grow back in spring.

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

  good job buddy !
Sometimes I wonder how our mom's get anything done without our supervision ! My mom is still hoping to get our deck planters done before the weekend . . . 16 days in my countdown ! And this is a special weekend cause mom is off Friday and Monday for Memorial Day :) Am I lucky or what ?

I don't know if you remember me telling you about the caw-caw nest near school ? Mom and the kids watched earlier in the year as the parents built the nest - picking up all kinds of things from the school yard. Then they watched the parents chase even hawks away from the area. Well, the babies have fledged and although mom and the kids haven't seen them yet, they've sure heard them - and boy, are they loud ! !

Today is supposed to go up into the high 80's before a cool down to the lower 80's for the rest of the week . . . hellloooo summer !

Have a great day :) love you and aunt Jinky ! Cookie

I'm glad you had a lovely company time. I'm sure you were the star attraction.
Sounds like your flowers are beautiful. My dad was working on our yard while mom was gone.
I'm back! I missed mom but she had a good time at the bridal shower and site seeing. I found out that I'm honorary flowerbird girl. This is eggciting! Mom got home at 3am so has been moving slow today. She missed me and dad and our warm weather (88 to 90). It was in the 60's and low 70's in UT! Hope all is well with everybirdie.

Boo Boo and I got to go outside today for the first time this year.Boo Boo got to sit on the porch for about 45 minutes.. Dad sat there with her for about 1/2 until mom brought me out in my harness and then dad went inside. even though it was Boo Boos old cage it scared her at first but she adjusted very quickly and even took 2 baths. usually i am not that interested but since this was the first time for the year i was quite excited and very interested in watching all the birds flying around in the yard. since dad went inside he decided to wash a frying pan mom had soaking in the sink. suddenly we all heard this yelling because dad had dropped the frying pan on his foot and smashed his already broken toes so mom had to cut short my outside time today but 15 minutes is better than none at all and i am looking forward to the next time i get to go out.

  Hi Gus, my sweet boyfriend,
I missed you lots,

Mom did some trimming of her roses in the front yard as they had gotten pretty beat up by the heavy rain we had. Dad has been busy working on the front deck area. He needed to repair the ceiling that was sagging a little. He fixed it and then he painted the ceiling and cleaned the light fixtures.The rings were all faded so dad repainted them and now they look great...

Love you lots, your SuziQ ♥
Not much going on here, dad did a little more painting on the trim around the garage and it looks great. The house is looking better, there is always something that needs doing when you own a home.

So happy to see you are back!!!....Hope you enjoyed your company and had a nice time with them...
Nothing new going on here except for the new baby Sun Conure...It seems to want someones attention all the time..If the parronts walk past our bird room Baby B/G just gives out a scream..When Mom takes B/G out to the living room in the evening B/G is so busy all the while either trying to help Mom type on her tablet or hiding under a pillow, etc..We Cockatiels are not quite that busy...
Sounds like a great weekend coming up around here with temps in the high 80s....Just in time for the opening of the pools and here in our gated community we have 2...So most of the people that have summer houses here will be arriving by the end of the week...

Thank you for liking my picture!That's my skin sis when she was down on Sunday she kept giving me whole body rubs which I totally enjoy,it makes my painful wings feel better and all the other aches and pains I have feel so soothing.In fact shortly after she took that picture I fell over I was so fast asleep and it was a shock to me to find myself flat on the table!Oh does my Mom know what Aunt Jinky is feeling about trying to catch up with everything once you get behind or have other things to do.Mom has had that same problem with her house plants also,for some reason several of the house plants had died,Mom had to plant all her primroses outside in the garden at the end of March and her rosemary plant is completely dead,all brown but Mom planted it anyway and hopes it will come back somehow.She's waiting to get the rest of the houseplants outside that are in out TV room window so she can clean up the window and make the place look neat again.My Mom is going to change her sheets and get the quilt off and wash that and hopefully hang that out on the line on Sunday so she can put it away for the summer.It was so good that you got to get your sunbath!Doesn't it feel so good to feel the sunshine on your feathers?We are hoping to get out again on Thursday when Mom is home again.Its going to be nice and warm tomorrow and we'll have to stay in our room all day while Mom is out all day.If you think your sweet Mom has a ungreen thumb you should see what my Mom does with plants!LOL!
This morning was a dull,dark,dismal,dreary sunless wet day with the highs of 60,the lows of 51 and right now its 56.Mom had tried for several hours to get on BC but we kept getting all these error messages and we couldn't even log on at all.We tried going through another birds page as they had the blog box to type in and when Mom did that and hit the add comment button it came back up with more cannot connect to remote hosts etc.So Mom just got us all up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us our bean mix.She came back and tried again but no use.So she worked more on the chores in the house.Since we can't go outside today,we will be spending time inside.Mom is trying to catch us all up on our notes because BC took away all our blog time and Mom has to get everything done before skin bro comes to pick her up tonight to go looking at an in law apt in Centerville.Other than Mom working on chores its going to be another very boring day here but that's the kind of day we love,it keeps Mom home with us!

Lizzie and Chipper have all kinds of food, and some of that Hatchday Cake, too! There are a couple birdies who are still there from yesterday, I think.

Mom chuckled at the UNgreen thumb--Mom somehow missed the green thumb that Grandpa has. About the only thing she can grow is a split leave philodendron. Maybe it is cuz the apt. faces west and always seems to be warm with the sun coming in the patio doors? Who knows. But she sure doesn't have a green thumb.

It is gonna be another warm one today--81 now, and the dew point is creeping up steadily. Kinda overcast. Mom says she hopes this summer is not gonna be a scorcher, but the weather folks say it is gonna be hotter than normal.

I was not good today. I kept going after Mom's toes and feet, and took a nice little bite out of her left foot. She was not happy. I got a time out, too. Luckily the bite did not bleed much and the skin has a flap on it. Mom put some styptic stuff on and it was fine. Then she ran to Meijer and picked up some good food and other stuff she needed. She apparently forgave me cuz she brought me some raspberries! Oh yeah!

Wing hugs coming your way!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hello Gus~
I hope the day is going great! It was boring around here today but I enjoyed it. I spent time with mom while McKenzie and Merlin took naps. They take naps just about the same time everyday so mom and I can plan playtime!
The construction dudes are back and putting the barriers on the roads. They had 2 big trucks with the cement barriers on them. The put them down and then painted them yellow! They didn't finish the whole street so I imagine they will be back tomorrow. It was fun to watch them! After that all that is left is painting the lines. No more beeping trucks after that! Thank Goodness!!!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Gus
Welcome back! We missed you!

Well, Mom dropped Gloria off at the Car Doc this morning at 8AM. They will take her over the hill (to the San Fernando Valley, that is) to have them work on the radio. They assured Mom she will have her back late this afternoon. Sure hope they are right, because Mom has been going nuts without a radio. And she still has no idea how much this will cost!

Meanwhile she is stranded here with me! Yay! We will have a Lean Cuisine for lunch, as soon as she is done blogging. However this morning she made something called a Poke Cake, that Dixie's sweet Mama, Aunt Rose, sent her the directions for with pics and everything! It is mostly done and in the fridge setting up the pudding topping right now. She says I can have some whipped cream and peanuts, but since the cake is Devil's Food I can't have any. Now Dad says I am a little devil all the time, so shouldn't that entire cake be mine?

No sunbath, since it is still just barely 66 degrees outside, but the weather guessers are still calling for a warm up by Thursday or Friday. Sure hope they are right, because they show sunbathing weather for the entire week after that!

  Hi Gus
Glad to see you back! Hope you enjoyed the company, too.
Yesterday mom planted everything else that was left. She thought she was done, but noticed that the guys who did the lawn weed whacked the Chinese Lanterns that she planted. She called Jeff to complain and he said he had more, and would bring them. Well, he brought three more plants, as well as snow peas, potatoes, tomatoes, apple mint, mustard greens, and cilantro! He and mom planted all that, and by last evening her neck and back were aching. It was a good time to plant, though, when there was help! Jeff also cleared out some of the day lilies so mom could plant the Asiatic lilies she got for Mother's day.
Today mom has a lunch with the pool ladies. I guess they'll all be talking about the pool opening on Saturday. She also has a bunch of errands, like getting more seed and suet which she didn't do yesterday, getting more fruits and veggies for us, and getting a mani/pedi if possible. Bree is coming on Friday to do our birdicures, so that's arranged.
Seems like summer is on the way! I hope you are having a great day. It's beautiful here this morning, so we're hoping it stays this way all day long. Get lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, 20k, let's celebrate!, Peppino, vote Laka for BOTM & Falco, vote Laka, 259145, BOTM.

  Hi, Gus
We missed you! Glad you are back but know had fun with the company.

What a lot of weather you had there with the fog, warmth and then the rain. We had some rain the other day and then it stayed on the cool side. Hopefully more rain for us soon.

Did we tell you mom finally finished that scrubby using two strands? Well, got some cotton yarn out so started a new scrubby with one strand of scrubby and one of cotton. Not finished with it yet.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  weeee ! ! I'm so happy you're back !
Did you have a good time with your company ? Happy Tuesday :) Days are getting busy as mom tries to tie up loose ends at school and get started on all her end of year paperwork. Tomorrow the kids have their hands on part of the NYS Science test . . . today mom has to stay late and get it all set up.

Last night just as mom and dad left to go on their walk, the skies opened and DUMPED rain out ! They got home to me pretty darn quick ! ! So instead of a walk, we all had strawberries and cream - OK, I had just the strawberries, but boy oh boy were they good !

Welcome back buddy ;) love Cookie

  Hi Gus
today we saw a bunny . it was munching happily on our hostas. everyone always blames the deer but the bunnies eat all the low to the ground plants. this bunny was very chubby.

the nursery delivered the bottle brush shrub today . dad spent all day Saturday and this morning digging the hole. it would have taken mom a week to dig the hole. after dad put the shrub in the ground he spent the rest of the afternoon mixing the soil with social mulch and peat moss and carefully tamping it into the ground. the shrub doesn't look like much now but eventually will.

love Cori

  Hi Gus
Its so good to have you back again,we really missed you while you were gone!It sounds like your sweet Mom is busy with all the laundry and getting it on the line and the floors scrubbed.My Mom is hoping to get her wash out on the line on Sunday along with the sheets and comforter so she can put it away for the summer.It was good that Aunt Jinky didn't take too long at the store and came right back to sit out on the porch with you so you could take advantage of the sunshine!
This morning was a bright and sunny morning with the highs for the day of 63 the lows of 51 and right now its 69.Mom got us up after she got dad off to work and cleaned our cages and fed us our bean mix then swept our room.After she put some things away from yesterday she decided to work on more chores and is hoping to take us all outside to get some sunshine if its warm enough for us to go out today.Mom cleaned the bathrooms and beat out all the area rugs and left them on the deck to get some air and vacuumed the whole downstairs as she couldn't do that yesterday.Other than Mom being home with us all day its going to be a boring day here.Which is just fine with us!
UPDATE:Mom finally got us all outside for a nice shower and some sunshine,it was so hot out on the deck that we got to have several showers before Mom had to bring us in so she could get ready for dinner.When she brought us inside we got our late afternoon snack and some fresh water in our clean water bottles!Mom will be going out around 8:00pm or so to see a new in law apt skin bro saw,then hopefully Mom will come home and snuggle with us.The house appointment got cancelled so we'll have Mom all to ourselves tonight,but we'll lose her tomorrow night when she and skin bro go to check it out.
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 you too!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Heya, Gus!
Glad that you are back, and that the visit was good for your folks and you!!

So far today I had some good stuff--a little piece of apple pie and a little piece of pecan pie! And some cole slaw, too. I am waiting patiently for my chicken and stuffing, and Mom says she might just throw a baked potato in with it--she changed her mind and made some lovely rice instead. I am in heaven! Of course, I had some grapes, mixed veggies, and other good stuff. But today I get to splurge and have things that are special for my big day! And of course, Mom sang to me, and we have been having a lovely day together, even if she did dye her feathers and I could not be on her shoulder for that.

Wing hugs coming atcha! Cake at the Dragon Cave!
Your buddy,
Kaji
