  Morning Gus & Chi Chi-from Queen Angel Christy
This morning when our daddy finally finished the morning paper changing route and food and water dishes, he sat down and powered up this cursed machine! He was so not ready to see his beloved Angel in the BOTD spotlight, he almost lost it! He had just came back inside from his morning prayers at her grave, today will be a solemn day of celebration at our home! There are certainly more beautiful birds in the world, but none was ever more loved, sadly, there can NEVER be another Christine! We have another fabulous day here in Rock Island, give our love to all in your great home, see ya tomorrow...

Love from Queen Angel Christy, Jenny Lynn, & our loving family

PS~We are all so proud of our Toos, their only demand is to be talked to, loved, played with, and have us spend time with them, that don't seem like to much to ask....

We had some real bad storms, and I sure hope they are all over for now. At one point it was raining so hard you couldn't see across the street. Glad it's over.

  Hi Gus
Quilting is better in the winter anyway. Does mom quilt by hand or does she have a machine that will do those stitches? Mom has always used a lap frame and sewn by hand.
It's cool here today, don't expect the temps to go much above 70. If that's the case, mom will probably scrub the porch railings, since she finally found the Simple Green she was looking for. It's a good cleaner for the outdoor stuff. Of course, if it gets warmer, that plan will die in favor of the pool. It's open for such a limited time, mom likes to take advantage of every day she can go. Labor day is coming too soon! Nothing much else going on; Mom has a tour coming up tomorrow at the museum, and Thursday is the big eye appointment. Gene will be going back to Germany on Saturday, so she'll probably go visit him on Friday. Other than that, the week is a slow one, but we're never bored, and neither is mom. Hope you are having a great day and getting lots of sunshine and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Gus
It's Sawyer.
Yes, mom and dad did eat the roast. They don't like to waste food. They'll know better, next time.
The weather wasn't that bad, yesterday. Mom and dad needed to send a letter to the bank's corporate headquarters, regarding the way their fraud case was handled, or should say, "mishandled". It took most of the afternoon to complete so no outside work for dad and no police station for mom. For dinner, mom sautéed some fish and dad picked up some soup, appetizers and veggies at their local Chinese restaurant.
Mom may work at the police station today and dad says he must mow the front lawn. Dad does need to pick up food at the Magnolia bird farm this week.
Today will be about the same as yesterday. Partly cloudy with a high of 92 and a low of 66.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

  Hi, Gus
Must be fun to have the cousin living next door. Would imagine cold winters is when a lot of the quilting gets done since can't do as much outside.

Slightly cooler for us yesterday, still hot, but hopefully means today will cool off more. The heat went away quicker at night so much easier to sleep for the family than the previous nights.

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

  HI Gus !
So mom is starting some quilting ? Another table runner or something bigger ? I don't know if we told you about one budgie that lived with mom way back . . . used to follow and pull out stitches when g'ma was stitching in the ditch !

What a wonderful surprise to wake up to see angel Christy as our BOTD ! It's the BC family thanking her for her wing in bringing Limon to the Dallas flock :)

We had a quick storm last night and the temperatures plummeted ! This morning we woke up to mid 50's and it's only hitting mid 70's ! Like fall ! ! ! Since it's Tuesday and that's the day daddy goes into NYC - it'll be me and mom for dinner time -

Have a great day ! love Cookie

I sure hope we are all finished with those nasty loud thunder storms with tornado watches. It was loud and scary for hours !!!!! I want summer!
That is nice that your mom has a cousin living right next door. Seems like your mom does have lots of crafts going on. But, I bet you are right ... you could help with a quilt this winter. Looks like winter will be here soon!!!
Today was a bad asthma day for mom. I took real good care of her. Outside it was dark and cold (60's) ... it looked like November! This is wrong ... summer is suppose to be warm and sunny. Where is my summer?

My Mom so agrees with your sweet Mom about it not being a good summer for saving energy either!We too had a rainy start this morning and we lost our power again so Mom had the fun of running around and trying to fix all the clocks,VCR,coffee maker,etc again,just when she has everything almost in sync from room to room,the power goes off again!It sounds like you have the same weather we have here,rain,dark as night,then sunshine so bright,then rain,then late in the day bright sunshine!We got to go out on the deck and join mom and dad for dinner for an hour but then the wind got strong and nearly blew the deck table off the deck,dad had to hang onto the table with my frother Kallie on it til the wind gusts stopped and then he took the umbrella off it!My Mom quilts also and she hasn't worked on her projects in a long time either,all of a sudden life picked up and now she's hoping to be able to start working on it in the winter again!My Mom can barely work on one project never mind two!But your sweet Mom is so good at what she does too!My Mom will try to see if she can use skin sis as a guinea pig to practice on!LOL!She's really good at my dad and skin bro as she does their hair all the time and how can you go wrong with a guys hair?But the girls are much more harder to work with!If you cut something off that shouldn't be cut you can't just glue it back on!
Mom and I soooo love your mantra this week!How true it is and how many people should be reading that in this world!
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,my sweet forever friend,Dixie

  Hi Gus
Yes, Mom is glad that Gloria the car is all pretty again. Several of you have asked about her after seeing her in my gallery, so here's her info. She is a 2001 Audi TT Quattro, and she only has 88,500 miles on her which is low for such an old car. Mom was lucky she didn't ever have a long commute, and one year only drove 1.5 miles to work! Anyway Mom bought her back when she was working and making bunches of money; she could never afford such a nice car today. That is why she plans to keep Gloria for a very long time!

I gave my mom a tough time about going outside this morning, but I finally gave in and climbed on her shoulder so she could carry me over to my outside carrier. Once there I had no problem climbing right in; I just didn't want to be interrupted in my meditation I was doing on my big swing. Anyway we got out there at 8:45 and it was a bit cloudy which meant it was not overwhelmingly hot yet. High today in the 90s again, so it's a good thing I didn't mess around too long. By the time Mom got home from the gym at 12:30 it was way too hot. In fact, Mom doesn't plan to leave the house again today. Works for me!!

  hi Gus
Hi everybirdie, Zeena here with Monday's BOTM POST. Today we visit a beautiful song bird making a new comeback in homes around the globe. The Pekin Rokin, a song bird of extraordinary talent. I wish to thank all my many friends for their votes and stopping to leave comments on my page. I read them all.
The Red-billed Leiothrix or PEKIN ROBIN (Leiothrix lutea) is usually found in India, Bhutan, Nepal, Burma and parts of Tibet. This species is a bird of the hill forests, found in every type of jungle though it prefers pine forests with bushes. It has also been found at elevations ranging from near sea level to about 7,500 feet.

The species was introduced to the Hawaiian Islands in 1918 and spread to all the forested islands except Lanai. Its population on Oahu crashed in the 1960s and it disappeared from Kauai, but is now common and increasing on Oahu The leiothrix was released in Western Australia but it failed to become established. This species was also introduced in Great Britain but permanent establishment was unsuccessful. It was introduced to France, where it is now established in several areas.
Adults have bright red bills and a dull yellow ring around their eyes. Their backs are dull olive green, and they have a bright yellow-orange throat with a yellow chin; females are somewhat duller than males, and juveniles have black bills. It has also been introduced in various parts of the world, with small populations of escapees having existed in Japan since the 1980s. It has become a common cagebird and amongst aviculturists it goes by various names: Pekin Robin, Pekin Nightingale, Japanese Nightingale, and Japanese (Hill) Robin, the last two being misnomers as it is not native to Japan.
Pekin Robins don't fly frequently, except in open habitats. This bird is very active and an excellent singer but very secretive and difficult to see. It makes a wonderful addition to a mixed aviary with good cover provided. Housing one pair per flight.
The standard fare for Pekin Robins in captivity comprises a mix of dried insect food, fresh fruits and mealworms. they especially like fruitflies and live crickets especially in the breeding season.
Pekin Robins are difficult to find for sale but well worth the expenditure and effort to find them.
with love and scritches Zeena 255116

  Hi Gus
Today is a rainy day and rather cool. I don't think it will hit 70 today. Mom cleaned and fed 13 skunks today, but her record of not getting sprayed still holds, knock on wood! She also took care of those little hawks who are quite grown now, and in the flight cage. (The flight cage is a pre release area for raptors, the center staff makes sure they can hunt, land, preen, do all the birdie things they'll need back home in the wild.) As well as all those, mom also cleaned and watered 3 more juvenile red tailed hawks and 5 screech owls. She also did some dishes and laundry while she was there today. Both of those areas tend to back up quickly if someone doesn't pitch in and help.
After the center, mom went shopping, but now she's home with us, with only one load of laundry to do, so she's basically ours for the day.
I hope you are having a pleasant day filled with sunshine and love. Hugs, Falco

My mommy has long black hair too. But she dyes it with hooman war paint a color called carmel brown heehee...
The senior year in high school is fun. My mommy and the skin sibs loved it.
We are having strange weather. I wonder if we are going to have an ice age that the science hoomans are taking about.
Five people got lightning struck while at the beach yesterday. I think one didn't survive. The thunder and lightning came out of no where and without warning on a clear day with blue skies. How weird is that ???
Today we are having another hot and humid day. YUCKKKY!!!!

Thanks so much for the honor of BOTD! I am so proud to be here amongst all you fabulous BC parrots! I love all the new found attention I am getting, you know us Toos must have constant interaction with those who love us! I have a lot to learn but my daddy says I am as smart as any Too, and I'm learning very fast! I can see sweet LaLo down the hall, and Jen comes flying by like a fighter jet once in awhile! I don't talk a lot just yet, but dad said I don't have to be loved and show love, much like my sister Angel Christy was! Have a great day and give my love to all in your sweet home, Jen will be back on tomorrow, but this is my day to shine...

My love, it's new & forever, Limon TooMan & my new Dallas family

  Hello Gus
Gosh last night we sure had some very bad storms. A lot of thunder and rain and Tornado warnings in our area. I don't think Mom was too happy with all the noise, and it kept her up very late. Today's another day, and it's looking better for us.

  Hi Gus
It's Sawyer.
Yesterday turned out to be 1.8 degrees hotter than Saturday. Even though dad really needed to work outside he decided to work inside instead. He helped mom finish cleaning the last two cages and then he re-mopped the kitchen floor. At that time, dad heard something outside. He went to see what it was and guess what? IT WAS RAINING! It was a real downpour. And it lasted a fantastic 45 SECONDS! BIG WHOOP! It evaporated in less than 5 minutes. but it was worse in other places. There were lighting strikes on Catalina Island that started brush fires and knocked out power and phones. There was also a lightening strike on Venice Beach that sent over 10 people to the hospital. Yup, that's life in Southern California.
After all the excitement was over, mom and dad started on dinner. They had decided on cooking a small pork roast in the Ninja. Dad wanted to used the steam/roast function. Mom had a recipe that called for beer so dad bought some beer and added it to the pot, along with onions and garlic. It sure did smell good while it was cooking, but smell isn't everything. The beer that dad used was too strong and the liquid was sour. And to top it off, dad cooked the roast too long and it turned out dry. We think that dad should stick with the BBQ grill.
Today will be with a high of 91 and a low of 68.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs.
Sawyer.

That's good the storm waited until after the Milonga to swing by your area. Hopefully no tornado came down near you!

Fun, fun Milonga. We had a great time with all our friends.

That's good to get things repaired and for the parronts to visit with the grands. Our mom also has long black hair, but guess not so shiny as when younger.

Mom is sending a card to test your new mailbox ! ! (I told you she'd been playing !)

Good morning ! I'm finally here - this is the second day in a row that we woke up to NO cable/internet ! During the night some really wicked storms came through - one KA-BOOM at about 3:40 was so loud it must have hit something ! As long as it didn't do any damage - there were no sirens so mom is hoping maybe just some minor damage . . . if any.

Well, mom's kitchen vacation is over :( Tonight she starts cooking again - bbq chicken and corn on the cob :) Nice going mom . . . find something daddy can cook ! har har har

I saw you having fun at the Milonga. It sure was a good night except for the BC acting up for me.
So, did you get to go visit with the family too? It sounds like your parronts had a good time.
Yes, the really bad t-storms and the tornado watch .... glad that's over.
Today sure was a nasty big stormy day. The thunder booms and flashy lights were pretty bad. There is a lot of damage around. We were lucky and are fine. I hope that every bird and family are doing ok too.
Maybe we'll start getting better weather soon, I hope so.

it stormed all night at our house. then this morning it wasn't sunny but it wasn't raining either. then around lunch time the sky darkened up but still no rain. dad insisted mom take doggie to walk for a poop before the rain started and mom said it may stay like this all day but dad insisted so off mom went with doggie. doggie did not poop. so dad said drive to the park for doggie to poop so mom first had to get gas and then went to the park with doggie. doggie pooped in about 15 minutes and just s doggie and mom made it back to the car it started to rain. not too much just lightly then it stopped. mom car home and made dinner and had the mishap with little Boo Boo. after dinner it starred to get very windy and rain so heavy everything in the yard must be smashed by now. it did this about this times this evening with lightening and thunder. all is quiet now.

mom and dad were eating dinner tonight and mom heard commotion coming from my cage and saw my foot was caught in my baby nest i sit in. i was flapping and hanging off the side by my bad leg. mom went over and held me so i wasn't dangling anymore and then dad took the nest from the cage which i was still caught in and worked for at least 3 minutes to get my foot untangled and dad said no more nest for me. tonight i sat all evening with mom in the bedroom and held my leg up but i still hoped around a bit using the leg. mom is glad i didn't pull my leg off i was struggling so hard.

Mom and Dad went out to breakfast at Hearth and Kettle and it took forever to get out of there!Mom had a birthday coupon for $10.00 off a meal and they got that all messed up!Then when they got home,skin sis came over with Peepers,Celine and Mario for Mom to clip their nails and for skin sis to do her laundry,they hung it out on the line and the minute the last piece of clothing got pinned up it started to rain!They had to run back and get it all down and put in the dryer so,so much for saving on energy and getting fresh smelling laundry!Then Mom cut skin sis's hair for her,she was really nervous about cutting her hair,Mom is all right with doing the boys hair but not girls!Mom started of with the clippers that she uses on the boys and the comb and layered skin sis's hair on the sides and layered bangs for her and left the back long!She trimmed a little off the length and then quit as she was afraid to go any further!Skin sis actually loved her new haircut!Mom made her a lunch of hot dog omelet and blueberry pan fried toast.
You are so right about that leaving the clothes out on the line and having it rain on them like it did today again for Mom and the same thing with our Mom's being the designated barbers/hair salon!And like you said our Mom's are the ones who have to fork out the money to get their hair done!
I can see just why your sweet Momma brought you inside,those rug rats sure can be stressful to us fids,Mom knows that for sure,questions,fingers poking at you,make him talk,can I pet him?Its much safer for us to be in the house!
How wonderful that the grands have such beautiful long black shiny and thick hair like their Mom!And its so sad that they are growing up soo quickly,Senior high!After that its college and off to the big wide world!Tell the grand that she will do just wonderful in the new school!We are all cheering for her and know she will be very popular and get greyt grades!
Today's highs were 74 and when the sun was out this morning it felt really good,but the intermittent rain was such a bummer especially when it kept getting dark!Then the sun comes out after 4pm for a few seconds!What good was that?Our lows are 69.
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

UNFAIR!! If you got put into lock down for screaming those brats should certainly have gotten the same treatment. Maybe I will come over for the next yard sale (or did they already sell the yard) and picket for unfair screaming practices.

The milonga sure was a lot of fun, although I still say the ladies in bikinis (you know who you are!!) took serious advantage of distracting us poor guys in the volleyball game. Still not sure who won, and I don't really care. What fun! The band sounded greyt as usual, Ms BB and her liquid refreshments were delicious and Lizzie's buffet....well, let's just say nobirdy went home hungry.

If you come to my page and look at the first two pics in my gallery you will see Gloria the car in all her gleaming glory (why do you think Mom named her Gloria). That's right; the new USB cable arrived yesterday and the pics are finally downloaded on my page. I don't mind sharing space with her at all, as long as she doesn't drive me to the groomers. We are going to have a long chat very soon.

Had a nice sunbath this morning, and we didn't get out till 9:30!! There were actually a few clouds out, so the weather was very slightly cooler. Just in the upper 80s today, which is an improvement. It still doesn't cool off much at night, and Mom has to leave the fan going in my room with my cover open about 6". Which means I wake up as soon as the sun comes up. Mom usually gets up around then anyway, but now I make sure she does!

Oh, and today I like peaches! Mom bought a couple more when she and Dad went to the grocery store yesterday, since they had some more locally grown ones. This time I decided they were good, which is fortunate since Mom said the grapes were so awful she didn't get me any.

  Hi Gus
Hello everyone, Zeena here with today's BOTM POST. Today we head to the warm tropical Island Luzon, Philippines and visit an unusual and exotic species of Dove. The Luzon Bleeding-Heart. The Luzon Bleeding-heart (Gallicolumba luzonica) is one of a number of species of ground dove in the genus Gallicolumba that are called "bleeding-hearts". They get this name from a splash of vivid red colour at the centre of their white breasts. The Luzon Bleeding-heart is the species in which this feature is most pronounced, and on first sight it is hard to believe that the bird has not recently been wounded. A reddish hue that extends down the belly furthers the illusion of blood having run down the bird's front. The Luzon Bleeding-heart was featured on a Philippine 2-peso postage stamp in 1994.


The Luzon bleeding-heart is classified as Near Threatened (NT) on the IUCN Red List and is listed on Appendix II of CITES., since it is commonly trapped. Local people use it for meat, but its striking appearance means that there is also a market for it in the pet trade. A captive breeding project has been started in Australia, and the Philippines. Habitat conservation is a priority but it will also be necessary to bring some of the three other species of bleeding heart doves (Negros, Sulu and Mindoro) into captivity, to prevent their extinction. Recently the first captive population of Negros bleeding heart doves has been established in the Philippines.

Only two of the five species of bleeding heart doves are held in captivity in Europe at present: the Luzon and the Mindanao. The European breeding programs for these species are coordinated by Bristol Zoo Gardens. They are being managed to provide a self-sustaining captive population and to develop important care and breeding techniques for use in the Philippines.

Identifying the areas where Luzon bleeding heart doves are found and the numbers that are left is the next step needed to secure this species in the wild. Once sites have been selected with the local community, the area will be protected to ensure the survival of the species in that area.

The areas where the bleeding heart dove lives also contain many other birds unique to these islands, all of which have been threatened by deforestation. In addition, some are threatened by hunting and illegal collection for the pet trade. By highlighting the plight of the bleeding heart dove, conservationists work to save the habitat for all the species in the area.

Although extremely rare in Aviculture 2 pairs were found for sale at $5000.US per pair.

All was not lost, as Mom made it home at a reasonable hour last night. I didn't hear her come in, but I sure made noise this morning to let her know that I missed her.

  Hey Gus
Friday we had issues with BC but my mommy managed to go on and off and answered my blogs. Yesterday was totally SQUAWK !!! I missed the milonga. I'm so happy that you love being on our team and you love basketball. I knew you would be an awesome pick for our team. The temps are still hot and humid. How's your weather treating you ???

Have a cool and comfy day
Love your buddy

  Hi Gus
Aw, it doesn't seem fair that you would be put in lockdown when the kids who started the yelling were still running free.
Hope you and Suzi had fun last night. It was another fun milonga last night. It was great to see everybirdie there! Mom signed off because of all the thunder and lightning, but we all stayed til the fireworks were done, then went home in Ipo's shuttle. Thanks to Kiddo, Taz, Lizzie, and Sam for another great party!
Mom spent yesterday afternoon at the pool, it turned out to be a gorgeous day. Last night the thunderstorms rolled in right around time for the milonga and continued til about 2AM. Mom was kept awake by Daisy, who is scared of the noise. She was wearing her thundershirt, but she was still pacing and whining a bit. Today it's gray, cloudy, and looks like it will rain again. It might be a shopping day or just a stay at home and clean the porch day. I hope you are having a fun day of sunshine and summer weather, and that you can get out to play awhile. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Gus
It's Sawyer.
It was pretty warm yesterday. Warm enough that dad didn't want to go outside and work. Instead he spent the day getting caught up on stuff in the office and helping mom with our cages. Sassy's and mine are the only ones that didn't get cleaned but they'll do them today. In the evening dad went out and fired up the charcoal side of his new BBQ grill and cooked some Tri-Tip steaks. I guess they were good cuz all we could hear was chewing and grunting and groaning. I heard dad say that there is nothing like a charcoal grilled steak. I don't know about that. I think I'd take millet over steak any day.
Today, after mom finishes our cages and dad re-mops the floor, they're going to try cooking a pork roast in the Ninja cooker, using the steam/roast function. They've never used that function before so, if the roast doesn't turn out well maybe dad will have a new door stop.
Today will be another hot one. It will be partly cloudy, with a high of 91 and a low of 67.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

  Hi Gus, good to see ya last night-Jennifer
Thanks Kiddo, SP, Taz, & Lizzie, what a fabulous Beach Party Milonga you put on last night, and Sammy and the Scruffies did a great job also, with good music! Sorry we had to be pulled away so soon, the neighbor man wanted to talk, and dad's sister called about a family matter, both were very chatty! Limon had a really good time and got to meet his hero Taz, they like each other as good buddies already! This should be a peaceful Sunday for us, dad has to finish assembling Limon's new cage, it should work really good for him! We are going to try to get Limon's BC page put up as soon as time allows, he is truly a remarkable TooMan! Have a great day, and give my love to all in your home, see ya tomorrow dear Sunday friends...

Love forever, from Jenny & the Dallas family

  Hi buddy !
It's already almost 8:00 in the morning and it's dark and dreary out ! Storms are occurring on and off all day. In fact when mom got up, although we had power, we had lost our internet/cable :( That put a damper on her morning ! Of course if it stays like this she'll play some more - she's loving the owl and the bird :)

Yesterday the parronts went to help out the g'parronts. After dad did the yard and mom took g'ma shopping (can you say cherries for $1.89 ?), they went to look at 'puters ! Yep, at 86, g'pa wants dad to teach him how to use a computer ! ! ! Exciting huh ?

Then last night mom brought me to Milonga and once again a great time was had by all ! Thanks Kiddo, Taz and Sam and the Scruffy Birds ! Oh, and Lizzie - gotta love those wings ! Have a great day - love Cookie

Come visit me, Cookie - summertime, summertime . . ., BC Library Now Open & Fly with the angels my Sally.

  Hi, Gus
Another fun Milonga. Glad you got to attend for a lil while although we know you and a few others had storms threaten and know can't have puter on during that. Some birds were having BC slowness but that happens during Milongas anyway.

Hopefully skinsis and the grand had a successful yard sale though we suspect they didn't sell the yard. That and the garage always seems to stay. Sounds like you were just trying to keep up with the yelling and screaming of them kids. Think they should've been more polite and quiet but yeah, hardly see kids in lockdown.

Another hot day yesterday, but didn't seem too bad, sorta creeped up a lil at a time and fortunately cooled in the evening.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Gus
I would think that hot peppers are rough on a stomach ... right?
Oh no ... they are trying to sell your yard again ... this is wrong. That's not right! It's your house and you shouldn't be in lock up. The rugrats need to be locked up!!!! Go scream at them for me! I'm on your side!
It's been a dark day here with a little rain. The really bad storm is south of us and heading for PA and the east coast. We had the scary thunder booms last night.
This evening, Mrs Fox came to the patio looking for scraps. Sorry, but I ate all my dinner. She sat out there for a little while staring at us. Try again tomorrow.
What a fun Milona Beach Party tonight. I just wish the BC didn't act up for some of us.
Hugs
Chyna

  Hi Gus
WOW did you ever look hot in that speedo! sorry we let the milonga early. as soon as we logged on it started thundering really bad but no rain. moms son clued on the phone and since mom hardly ever hears from him it was very nice to have a short talk with him. then dad wanted mom for something and mom had the tv on and sat down for a moment to watch something and fell sound asleep because she only got about 4 hours of sleep last night. when she woke up it was too late to go back to the milonga. it was still thundering and finally we are now getting one good rain.

love Cori

  Hi Gus
Mom and I were so frustrated the whole time that BC was down and it sure was doing strange things to us,like only giving us blogs from the 20th of July and the BOTD was from the same date!Mom checked BC before she left yesterday but still nothing so she left for the day and was hoping that we'd be able to visit everyone by the time she got home last night which we did,thankfully!
Mom filled dad a whole lot of coffee filters with coffee for the mornings and then did a load of laundry and got it on the line this morning,then she took us all outside for an hour or so before they had to leave,the sun was really bright and we all got a soaking shower.While my parronts were gone it started to rain and when Mom got back her laundry was a bit damp,it really didn't dry that well and dad helped her get it all in.Now she's got laundry hanging all over the house to dry!Its 72 here right now at 7:30pm but it sure feels like 60!My dad finally finished with painting the trim on the house purple yesterday and he hauled what skin sis left in the garage to the dump this morning and took Mom's car to fit it all inside to make one trip!She is coming over tomorrow for Mom to cut her hair!Mom knows how to cut the boys hair(my dad and skin bro)and has an idea of doing skin sis's hair but has never really cut her hair other than a trim or two or even shorter!
That Singer sewing machine sure felt like an antique,I don't think they make them that heavy anymore!Or inside a cabinet to work on either!Now did skin sis and the grand get any bids on the yard?LOL!Now I agree with you that you shouldn't be in lockdown in the house for yelling when those kids should be in lockdown as they started it first!My frother Kallie sure loves to scream whenever he sees anyone outside going by,it really makes everyone turn around and see just where that sound was coming from!
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 my sweet forever friend,Loving you always and forever,Dixie

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