For the longest timeI had been wanting to add, either an African Grey or an Amazon to my home, and both were for sale in the pets for sale in the newspaper, for the same price! When Jenny and I met, the search was over, as she walked over to me and started crawling up my leg, she knew, and I knew, that we would be forever friends, and while she was no longer wanted in her other home, you should see and feel the love she exudes to all who come near her, she adds the brilliance of Summer sunshine to our home daily! I could not possibly imagine my life without Jennifer, without Jen I would cease to be, she gives me reason and makes my heart beat!! Jenny Lynn is an awesome parrot...

On March 22nd, I was officially inducted into Maxie's very prestigious 10K Hall of Fame Club, and for that I want to thank each and every one of you for your participation in making this all happen, especially my best friend Sugar, for believing in me, and kick starting the final campaign! Thanks again to all of you, and if I can do it, you can also, see ya on the BC my dear friends...
With love, Jenny Lynn

Hi! My name is Jenny-I'm watching the Superbowl with Tiama & Sugar

I am an Orange-Winged Amazon from Rock Island, IL.

Jen Lynn, Daddy's girl, and sometimes 'Gator Girl', and Da Coach... I'm Alfie's chick

15 years old   F

Orange-Winged Amazon

Mac and cheese, pizza crust, and cheetos, toast & chunky peanut butter and all fruits and veggies...and aunt Betty's birdy bread, yummo...

Almost anywhere in or on my brother Ziggy's cage, or when he is in mine, we are together 24/7, I love my new flock mate...

Seeing my dad play with my sister bird and don't touch my brother, he's my buddy!!

Jen Lynn is my owner, and she is the most loving, caring
intelligent animal I have ever been around, and the things she says and does is a constant source of total amazement at what her little brain brings forth everday! To know her is to love her...I know her, and I love her, and with God as my witness, I love her more than life itself...


The early spring defensive posture that we call the Amazon Attitude, also robbing banks, and drinking Jack Daniels, and getting in fist fights with those who would be bullies to other parrots....

As always forever....

  What a great picture !
Our storm yesterday ended early afternoon - in plenty of time for the crews to take care of the roads so mom and dad could go to the retirement party. I had an early dinner and tuck in after a good long wet bath ! Mom had a great time - there were folks there she hadn't seen in decades ! Daddy was bored (but he's a trooper and told mom it was OK, since he drags her places sometimes too)

Today is just a cold, icy day, all the slush refroze ! Hopefully it'll be treated so the folks can do the grocery shopping cause the next big storm comes tomorrow night into Tuesday. This one is supposed to be nearing double digits of snow ! YIKES !

Be good to daddy Jen ! Have a fun day - love Cookie

  Hi Jenny,
what a great picture of you and Sugar and Taima...do you mind if I join you two?

Mom saw that on their web site where the Seahawks posted where the 12s can gather to give the team a proper send off. Mom loved seeing Mike Rob's video of all the 12s sending the team off last year. Hope someone from the team will be making some videos for us to watch. Doug Baldwin had a nice one last year too.

We Believe...they are going to win the game and like you said...they will re-Pete...I think it is kind of cool that Kevin Williams is getting to go to his first Super Bowl after over 11 seasons in the league...he wasn't sure what to do after the NFC champion game...never won one before. He has helped the team a lot...Mebane is a tough spot to fill.

Mom thinks it is crappy the way the NFL is treating Marshawn these days with all the fines and now if he puts his hand near his crotch they will impose a 15 yard penalty against the team. Soon, Mike Bennett won't be able to do his victory dance after a sack...

Have a super Sunday, wing hugs and love...Scoober

OH WOW NICE PROFILE PICTURE OF YOU AND SUGAR AND TIAMA. HOW IN THE OWRLD DID YOU GET TIAMA TO POSE WITH YOU TWO. CAN'T WAIT TO SEE TIAMA FLY IN ON SUPERBOWL SUNDAY.

WE HAD A NICE DAY HERE, THE SUN WAS SHINNING AND IT WAS 37 DEGREES WITH A BREEZE BUT NOT BAD. MOM DECIDED TO WALK DOWN THE STREET (A 15 MIN WALK) TO HER FRIEND'S CONDO TO PICK UP THE KEYS TO HER PLACE. MOM IS GOING TO TAKE CARE OF HER 2 HIMALAYAN CATS FOR A WEEK. MOM HAS TAKEN CARE OF THEM A FEW TIMES LAST YEAR AND THE YEAR BEFORE. THEY ARE VERY PRETTY. MOM IS HOPING THAT THE WEATHER WILL BE DECENT SO SHE CAN WALK THERE INSTEAD OF DRIVING THERE. WILL SEE HOW IT GOES.

TOMORROW IS THE LOCAL BIRD FAIR SO MOM HAS TO GO AND GET KACEY SOME TIEL FOOD AND ME SOME HEMP SEEDS. I LOVE THEM SEEDS. I THINK I AM OKAY ON MY NUTRIBERRIES.

HOPE YOU HAVE A VERY RELAXING SUNDAY AND LETS PRAY WE DON'T GET HIT WITH SNOW.

PRAYING OUR FRIENDS ON THE EAST COAST WILL BE OKAY AND THAT DIXIE'S DAD WILL BE SAFE AS HE CLEARS THE STREETS IN HIS TOWN.

  Heya, Miss Jenny!
Cool pic!! Mom just about died when she heard about the atmospheric pressure deflating the Pat's balls. How come that did not happen to the Colts? Same stadium, same conditions. Baffling isn't it?

And Mom laughed to hard about the flipping coins about the snow. We had a guy who did the weather years ago with a puppet named Albert the Alley Cat. I will tell you, they nailed the weather every time. And they did not have all this fancy stuff to predict things. Albert would be spot on.

Hope you are having a super day with your Dad!

  Hi Jenny Lynn
Yea we dont put too much stock into the weather guessers either.
I almost fell into the wastebasket today! Mom set me on it to do my hurry up and I I didn’t get my foot on just right and almost fell in. Mom put out her hand and caught me and I grabbed on. At least the basket was empty but it’s a long way to the bottom!! “I made myself a snowball as perfect as could be. I thought I’d keep it as a pet. I made it pajamas and a pillow for its head.

I hope you guys are having a great day! It was awesome to talk to you today! It always makes our day so much better when we get to spend some time chatting with you!!!
You know that we have to use the carpet cleaner but mom is waiting to put me in the bedroom first. I won't make as big of a fuss as Mandy will but mom doesn't like to use any cleaner around me. It doesn't have a strong smell but you know how mom is!!
Mom got some ravioli for dinner. It's all cooked and ready to go. It has cheese in it so I won't have it anyway. I hope mom will go get more of the sourdough bread we had yesterday. It was so yummy!!
I hope you have a great day! Please give dad our love and big hugs to you all!

When my mom was a little girl she loved to go ice fishing with her dad and one of his buddies. They would just sit on buckets out on the ice.She never got cold but her feet did.
Now her dad still goes with his buddy but now his buddy puts up one of those shacks with a heater no getting cold that way.
My mom always says it seems to her those weather guessers put the forecasts in a hat and pick one out.We like your idea of a coin toss.Have a great day.

It's Popeye.
Mom went back to the police station and was actually able to get some work done. While mom was working dad checked around for the best deal on Measles shots. The way they are spreading around here it's better to be safe. Sam's Club has the best price. Dad also filled up the car with gas, at $2.17 per gallon. That's the cheapest he's seen it in many years.
Today will be clear, with a high of 78 and a low of 54. Mom and dad are going to mom's brother's house for a birthday party.
Hope your day is fun.

I won't tell a soul about your shoes uncle Chuck . . . Well, the tv is still saying 2-4 inches ! All you have to do is look out the window to see there's already about 5 and it's still snowing ! Don't weather guessers use windows ?

The nice thing about storms like this is it keeps mom and dad home :) I don't know yet if they'll get to the retirement party tonight or not - it's for someone mom has worked with for 33 years so they'd like to go, but nothing is worth risking life and limb . . . especially after the experience they had a couple years ago when that tree fell on the car while they were sitting on the snowy road !

Those shoes sounds awesome. Sounds like it was made to fit his feet eggactly and give the proper support. He'll be able to work making toys and taking care of the flock without discomfort in standing. Oh, and no cost to him? Even better.

MOM PICKED UP THE HARRISONS PELLETS AND A FEW LIGHT THINGS AT THE GROCERY STORE. THEN SHE CAME HOME AND DID A BIG LOAD OF LANDRY. THIS MIGHT NOT SEEM LIKE MUCH BUT IT IS WHEN YOU ARE IN PIN AND ITS THE FIRST DAY YOU ARE OUT OF BED. MOMS BACK WAS ACHING AND SHE WAS GOING TO LAY DOWN WHEN DAD GOT SOME SORT OF VIRUS ON HIS COMPUTR AND STARTED YELLING TO MOM FOR HELP. MOM TOLD HIM TO TURN OFF THE COMPUTER AND CALL COMCAST. COMCAST SEURITY TOLD DAD NOT TO TURN ON HIS COMPUTER BUT USE MOMS COMPUTER SO THEY COULD INSTALL A ANTI VIRUS SOFTWARE ON HIS COMPUTER TO STOP THE VIRUS. MOM SAT THERE FOR 2HOURS WHILE DAD WOULDNT QUIT TALKING WHEN COMCAST WAS TELLING MOM WHAT TO DO. MOM HAD HER PHONE ON SPEAKER PHONE AND WHEN DAD WALKED INTO MOMS ROOM AND SAW SHE WASNT HOLDING THE PHONE HE STARTED YELLING AND MOM SAID SHE DIDNT HAVE TO HOLD THE HPHONE IT WAS ON SPEAKER PHONE SO DAD PICKED UP THE PHONE AND STARTED TALKING WITH THE SPEAKER PHONE ON AND NO ONE COULD UNDERSTAND HIM AND MOM GET TELLING DAD TO BE QUIET SO SHE COULD HEAR THE MAN FROM INDIA TELLING HER WHAT SHE SHOULD DO. DAD KEPT TELLING MOM NOT TO TELL HIM TO BE QUIET. IT JUST WENT ON AND ON. DAD IS NOT SUPPOSE TO TURN ON HIS COMPUTER UNTIL THE COMPUTER TECH NERD COMES ON MONDAY TO CLEAN IT. DAD DIDNT LISTEN AND MOM COUD HEAR DAD YELLING TO COMCAST ALL EVENING AND WHEN DAD WENT TO TELL MOM ABOUT IT SHE SAID SHE DIDNT WANT TO HEAR ANYMORE SO DAD IS MAD AT HER.

HEY JL, DID YOUR DAD GET BLACK OR BROWN SHOES AND ARE THEY TIE OR THE VELCRO STRAPS? G-MA HAS BEEN WEARING THE DIABETIC/TRAUMA SHOES FOR YEARS. HER FIRST PAIR WERE A WHAT MOM CALLS A TAUPE COLOR AND THEY TIE. THE SECOND PAIR SHE JUST GOT LAST YEAR ARE BLACK AND THEY HAVE THE STRAPS. G-MA ALSO MUST GET ORTHOTICS IN THE SHOES TOO. G-MA HAS CHARCOT'S JOINT OF THE LEFT FOOT/ANKLE. ITS A TYPE OF INFECTION THAT BREAKS THE BONE DOWN SO THAT G-MA'S LEFT FOOT IS VERY DEFORMED.

I DO HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND AND STAY WARM. A STORM IS SUPPOSED TO COME OUR WAY SOMETIME SUNDAY.

Glad your Dad can take advantage of getting those shoes! Mom doesn't qualify for anything from that new O-care stuff. Heck, she would not be able to qualify for cheaper rates, either. Glad she is working and the job provides decent coverage.

  Hi Jenny Lynn
and the loving sweet Dallas flock and family!
This morning was cold and there was frost on the lawns and deck.Our high's were 36 degrees and the lows will be 30.Mom got us up early and cleaned our cages and fed us our warm bean mix and then she collected the trash and loaded it in her car and then she took off to Nana's and from there they went to the dump and then to the bank then to Kenmark to get Nana's typewriter ribbon but it was the wrong size so they are going to resend for the right size.Then they went to Falmouth and went to the Dollar Tree where both Mom and Nana got some Italian Wedding Soup and a few other things and then they checked out PetCo but didn't find anything there either.Then they went to Comcast so Mom could return some equipment for skin bro and Nana could get another remote and return the one she had as it didn't work.From there they got gas in Nana's car and the going rate for gas here is $2.25.They went back to Nana's and had some lunch of salad and tuna and then Mom helped Nana fix her couch cover to get it on right and then Mom helped untangle some necklaces that Nana had and then it was well after 4:00pm so Mom left to go home and she no sooner got around the rotary when she was stopped with all the other traffic that was backed up.There was a bad accident quite a distance down the road and by the time Mom got up to where it was the ambulance had already went by and the tow trucks and police cars were just about finishing up from the mess,there was a kids Little Tykes picnic bench in the road along with some other smashed thing.It took Mom a half hour or more to finally get home.Dad had already fed us our snacks and filled our humidifier and Mom is happy to be home and is still trying to get warm.They are expecting our storm to start here around 3:00pm but there are other forecasts which are saying that it will start at 7:00am.Hopefully we'll only get rain but then the others are saying a coating to an inch.As soon as Mom is done with dinner and the dishes and cleaning our room she will be ours for the night to snuggle with!
We are all so thrilled that your sweet daddy finally got those new diabetic shoes and he can enjoy walking and being on his feet again without having to deal with the pain!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses to everyone there from everyone here!Loving you always and forever,Dixie and flock and family too!

  Hi ya Jen~
I hope you guys had a great day! Mom was running all over the place today! She was not enjoying it at all! She got up early since dad said he had to get to his truck early. Then they changed his loading time so he said he was going to go get groceries for the truck. He was gone for an hour and a half and never went to the market!! Mom got Ian to work then took dad to the market and to his truck. Jennifer went to work, then Ian got off and now Jennifer is home so we are going to relax for the rest of the evening.
We are going to have some soup and sour dough bread for dinner. I'll have the bread but the soup has broccoli in it and you know how I hate broccoli!
Mom will try to find some time to see about the pictures. So far nothing had gone as planned as far as the weekend!!
You all enjoy the evening and please give Dad our love!

That is great that dads new shoes dont hurt and love that obama paid for them too! LOL
When mom went to the store she looked for a papaya and found them at this other store. The store she usually goes to didn’t have them there the last time. Mom picked the smaller one and boy is it ever good and ripe and really sweet tasting too. The calendar page says January is papaya month and that sure is right! “I made myself a snowball as perfect as could be. I thought I’d keep it as a pet. I made it pajamas and a pillow for its head. Then last night it ran away but first…it wet the bed.“ V4U. Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Jenny Lynn
Today mom had a trainee at the center. They did the outdoor (big) squirrel pen in the back, rather than the squirrel porch. That was good, it gave the trainee and mom experience in navigating snow and ice to get to the animals. They had to go back to the building for more blankets and towels too, since there were more carriers back there than mom anticipated. She figured with 6 squirrels, probably 3 carriers, but there were 7 in there!
They also cleaned the recovery room, which has 3 snapping turtles, 3 box turtles, a cooper's hawk and a red tailed hawk recovering right now. The poor Cooper's hawk seems to have a head injury and his wing was wrapped. The staff took him down to the shelter to get an xray, but mom doesn't know how that turned out, since she left before they got back.
I think mom is with us the rest of the day, YAY! I hope you are getting lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

It's Popeye.
Mom went into the police station yesterday, after not being there for a couple of weeks. She discovered that the one other volunteer that helps her had really messed things up. Mom spent the entire time straightening up the mess she left. The manager of the records dept. is going to talk to the other volunteer. Another volunteer that mom trained has been gone since December, helping with her new grand daughter. Mom was really glad to see her back but then found out that she can only work two days a month. That's no help for mom. There are two new people who want to volunteer but the public relations manager doesn't know where she should put them. Hey! How 'bout putting them with our mom?
Dad worked in the backyard and got it looking a little better.
Today will be clear, with a high of 77 and a low of 50. Mom may go into the police station again today but dad has to stay home and wait for the alarm tech again. The same back door is giving problems again.
Hope your day is fun.

  Hi Jenny-Lynn
Hello Adventurers. As we draw close to Manuas, Brazil, we must be watchful for both human threats and the ever present threat from wildlife both on land and aquatic. Although the Hippo is an African animal, there are now over 50 individuals and counting living happily along the Amazon and other South American Rivers. In the late 1980s, Pablo Escobar kept four hippos in a private menagerie at his residence in Hacienda Nápoles, 100 km east of Medellín, Colombia, after buying them in New Orleans. They were deemed too difficult to seize and move after Escobar's fall, and hence left on the untended estate. By 2007, the animals had multiplied to 16 and had taken to roaming the area for food in the nearby Magdalena River. In 2009, two adults and one calf escaped the herd and, after attacking humans and killing cattle, one of the adults (called "Pepe") was killed by hunters under authorization of the local authorities. As of early 2014, 50 hippos have been reported to exist on the Amazon and it's tributaries.
With Mick Dundee departure after enjoying BB's lunch, the birds begin to wonder how they would get past the Hippos ahead in the River. Amando, Jenny-Lynn and Sky sit close, deep in discussion trying to figure out the safest way past the upcoming danger.
"I think we simply paddle by, staying as far away from them as we can. If we take one boat past at a time it shouldn't disturb them overly" Jenny-Lynn adds, worry on her face
"But if they do attack the boat and it is alone we might not be able to get there in time to help them." Sky adds
"I think we stay close together." Amando replies after some thought, " we paddle as little as we have to, let the river move us by"
"It might be best if we separate and place guards in each boat while passing the hippo pod." Jenny-Lynn directs
Sky and Amando agree, and set about moving guard birds into each boat. The nervous Adventures load their boats, and pushing off from shore, slowly paddle towards possible danger lurking the the River ahead. Finny and Chipper had reported back that the hippos were resting near the west bank of the river in shallow water. The birds move their boats towards the eastern shore, paddling carefully, ever watchful for danger. Rounding a sharp curve in the River near Manuas, JL in the lead boat with Sugar, Cookie, Raffi, Peepers, Laka, Strawberry and RT spots the first group of hippos. Resting submerged below the murky Amazon waters, just their heads exposed. Pointing she let's out a shrill whistle to inform the others that danger was ahead of them. JL directs her companions to stop paddling, and allows the boat to move slowly along pulled by the current of the water. Sky and Kaji's boats pass by the hippos without incident. Next boat to pass is LA and Dixie's group, guarded by Cappy. As Cappy instructs his friends to stop paddling, one huge male Hippo opens his mouth and lets out an angry roar. His sudden call rouses the others in the pod.

The parronts had the localized treatment for termites in the back bedroom that had evidence. They hope that takes care of it and don't need to do the tenting again. Not near us, whew! The room we stay in is an addition the parronts put on a couple years after buying their home so it isn't affected by old material.

TGIF ! We have one nice day today before the snow flies tomorrow - the weather guessers still aren't committing themselves to an amount other than "substantial" ! Other than the retirement party tomorrow night, mom has report cards to work on though so it won't be a waste. She has to stop on her way home from school today to pick up more seed for the outdoor fids - they are so bold, they sit right on the porch railing waiting and watching the feeders get filled ! !

Mom took all my foot toys out of my cage last night when she realized how much time I was spending in there ! I guess today I'll have to drag them all back ! Good thing daddy is semi-retired and I can do that ! Hope you have a fun project in store too ! Happy Friday - love Cookie

  Hi Jenny Lynn
The grands dad is coach for her softball team and the grand is a pitcher and pitches quite fast and hard. She also takes pitching lessons. Last night as the team was all practicing and the grand was pitching to her dad he looked away and when he looked back the ball smacked him in the nose. Lots of blood everywhere and the grand was quite upset she hurt her dad too. Finally got the bleeding stopped but the nose is quite swollen and hoping its not broken. Its been a busy 2015 already and to think it only started! “I made myself a snowball as perfect as could be. I thought I’d keep it as a pet. I made it pajamas and a pillow for its head. Then last night it ran away but first…it wet the bed.“ V4U. Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Jenny-Lynn and the Dallas Flock
Hello fellow Amazon Adventurers. I was sure glad to see that Ms BB had welcomed her pal to join us for a part of our trip up the River. She musta known we were going to run into some nasty company along the way. Nothing worse then Crocs or gators for rocking the boat so to speak. Thankfully we had warning from Finny and the Green Angels. With BB's shuttle always on the ready she was able to have her friend Mick from Australia join us . He has a nickname of Crocodile Dundee. Mick stepped up on the bow of the long boat so the crocs could see him better. When they did they all headed for the bottom of the river & stayed there. They didn't want to be made into boots,belts,hats or luggage!!! I sorta feel sorry for them after Cappy and Little Angel got done with them.
"OK, enough with the green gator guys, Ok Crocs. Let me at' em. I'll show them a thing or five. I'll bite their noses, sparkle their tails and then......"Li
"il Angel yells at the crocs as they swim around the boats. "Oh you don't wanta wake the baby.
Too late....LOOK OUT CROC HERE I COMEEEEEEEEEEE." Little Angel grabs an oar and whacks the croc on the nose hard making tears come to his eyes.
Little Angel" Sky yells, "Stop hurting the Crocs, you're making them cry. OH no not that." He watches as she grabs one by the tail and bites down as hard as she can, "and trust me that's hard."
"Little Angel, I thought I told you be good?" Amando looks at her and can't help but grin as he watches the neon sparkled crocs swimming away in shame, that a little girl bird beat them up.
Everybirdie laughs as the crocs disappear. Then little Angel turns to see Mick standing on Ms BB's boat. She grins sheepishly and giggles. "Way ta go mate" Mick calls to her making LA happy.
"Whew! That was a close one! Thankfully, LA, Cappy and Ms. BB took care of those nasty crocs! Good grief! What will we encounter next?? Oh, oh....my Green Angels just informed me that there are some hippos up the river. Just what we need! Do be careful. Hippos are even more dangerous than crocs. We have to find baby Armando's Momma and get him home before anything else happens. I'm off to check on the hippo situation and really search for Armando's Momma. " Finny waves his good-bye as he heads off up-river to re-join the Green Angels as they gather information about the hippos.
Heading into shore, tie off their boats and relax. Its lunch time so Ms BB sets up her portable kitchen." How about deep fried gator bites, corn dogs and deep fried pickles?
I have been told by Mr Mick Dundee the gator bites taste like chicken. " Picabo makes a face at the thought of Gator bites. Boo Boo yells, " Bring'em on!"
"Then we can sneak past those Hippos and continue our hunt for the baby"s Mom & Dad."
As BB and the girls cook lunch, the boys bring out some maps and check for possible nesting sites ahead. As they look over the map Willie points to a treed area, "LOOK! A nesting area of Amazon species"

  Hi ya Jen~
I hope you guys are having a great day! It's been boring around here but that is just fine with me. Mom worked last night and now we have our weekend again! I think she should take 3 days off every week!!
Dad washed his $300 Galaxy phone in the washing machine last night! Guess what? It doesn't work anymore!hahahahaha He is a bigger dork than mom is and that's saying something! He left 5 hours ago to move things to a new truck and then he was going to get a phone. Mom checked the bank account and he hasn't gotten one yet! Jennifer has to catch a ride from a co-worker since he is not back yet and we can't call him. If he hasn't got the phone, he doesn't know what time it is! He really can't function without his phone. It's a very sad, sad thing!hehehehehehe
I hope your day is just perfect! Please give dad our love and big hugs to My 12ths in Rock Island!!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Jenny
I had a nice morning till Mom got out that awful sucking machine. I hate the noise it makes, even though she never uses it in my room because it sends me into a panic. She has a non-powered sweeper for my room. And I don't like it much better, but at least it doesn't make any noise. I do have to say I hate housework Thursdays though. I thought Mom was retired? Doesn't that mean no work? Humph!

We went outside at noon when the chores were done, and I had a lovely sunbath. It only hit 71 in Simi today, but we were sitting in the sun and it felt just right. Dad said he saw on the news it was supposed to be in the 80s this weekend, but weather.com is showing upper 60s. Pretty big difference.

I was supposed to go see Jennifer this afternoon for a nail trim, but Mom called to make sure she was working since she won't let anyone else touch me. She has the same thing Mom had last week and is out sick! Reprieve! So now Mom is going to check back on Saturday. I don't wish Jennifer ill, but I sure hope she isn't back yet. Mom hopes she is because my nails are REALLY sharp!!

  Hi Jenny Lynn
and the awesome Dallas flock and family!
This morning started off as a dull,dark and dismal day after the snow we had last night which only amounted to a coating and nothing much.Mom was so happy about that,but my dad still went out at 3:00am to get the roads all treated for the rush hour traffic.We all know what he's gonna do when he gets home tonight,yup,eat a good dinner,take a shower and go to bed!The day was really weird here after the dark,dismal beginning it then got sunny then it got dark again and was raining these pin sized pellets that bounced all over the deck and lawns and yards,then about fifteen minutes later it was raining and its been like this for most of the day here,our highs for the day were 37 and our lows were 25 and its still hanging in at 37 right now.No sooner had Mom got us all cleaned and fed and our room swept up skin bro was at our door and he stayed with Mom til late this afternoon,Mom made him scrambled eggs with cheese and some pan fried toast as he was very hungry and some butter toffee coffee.He played with Dixie and Candida for awhile and then before he left Mom packed him up a care package of the rest of the snicker doodle cookies she made on Sunday and a big container of angel hair pasta to take home so he'll have something to eat there.Then Mom found out that he went right over to Nana's and she gave him lunch!So Mom didn't get much done today at all and now has to catch up with some things before she has to go out for her Friday errands with Nana to the dump and to pay some more big bills!Other than that it was an uneventful day here but we were only too happy to have Mom all to ourselves for a whole day!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses to everyone there from everyone here!Loving you always and forever,Dixie and flock and family too!

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

  Hi Jenny Lynn
We saw a bit of a warm up today, but the driveway is still icy in spots. Mom salted it this morning before she went to the museum. She had a tour with Kindergarten kids today. The teacher in charge told mom that she remembered her from last year! Of course, K kids are like herding cats, but it was okay, only one tour today.
Mom is thinking of going to Barnes and Noble to renew her membership, but it depends on what time we're done with our blogs. We let mom know our priorities. If she doesn't get there today, she'll make it tomorrow, for sure. Tonight is cleaning the cages night, so we all have to be ready to rearrange things once mom has finished disrupting our beautiful work.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of warm cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Jenny
It's Popeye.
Mom and dad went to see another movie. this time they saw Fury, the story of a tank crew. Wow! Dad loved it. He's really in to World War Two stuff. Mom liked the movie but said it was violent. Well, so was the war. After the movie they went to see their friend in the rehab hospital and took him more candy. He seems to be doing pretty good.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 77 and a low of 49. Mom's going to work at the police station and dad is going to clean up the back yard.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye
