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...

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 Jen Lynn & Alfie~How real love should be...

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

16 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....

  Hello Jen~
I hope you guys are enjoying your day. Another pretty one up here. Suppose to get near 80 today. I think the complex pool opens today but so far no one is there. The chairs and umbrellas are all set up but I suppose everyone is at work. Maybe later. It will be interesting to see how McKenzie reacts.
We are getting some chores done today. Tomorrow will be the sprinkler and smoke alarm inspection. It is going to be noisy! Mom is hoping they show up early. Ian is usually off on Wednesday but this week he has to work. If they don't show up by the time Jennifer has to go to work, I'll be going with mom! Road trip for me!hahahahaha It's only a few miles but mom does not like the idea of strangers in the house when no one is home. McKenzie goes with mom anyway and we will just lock Merlin in the bathroom. The bathrooms are about the only place where there are not sprinklers! Dad will be home tomorrow but probably not until after Jennifer goes to work.
I love that picture of you and Alfie! You know I have a copy on my wall right next to my cage with your feathers in the frame! I love it to pieces!! Sure do miss Alfie and RaneBeau too. I understand they don't have time for BC. Still think about them all the time though!
Enjoy the day and please give dad our love! Hope PT went well!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Jenny Lynn
Ms LaLo,Angel Christy,Ziggy and wonderful Uncle Chuck!
We all give Uncle Chuck all our love and keep him in our good thoughts and prayers to help him get through the grueling sessions of PT he has to endure,but we know he will make it through.We all know just how strong he is and he will fight with all that's in him to get past all this!We all love him and our love will carry him through!We are all right there by your side so never think you're all alone!We are always here with you no matter what time or day or night it is.
This morning is another dull dark dismal dreary day with the highs for the day of 75 the lows of 62 and right now under cloudy skies its 65.After Mom got dad off to work,she put some of the laundry away that had been hanging up in the house to dry and then she got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and we got our bean mix.Yesterday Candida's thermal perch stopped working and was ice cold.Mom had tried everything to get it to work but to no avail,she told dad about it and he had an extra plug and it worked and now Candida is happy again with having warm feet and toes.Its still too cold to be without our heated perch and Bird Warmer.We use them all year round here.Its going to be a nice quiet day now we think.Skin bro IM'd Mom earlier this morning and wanted her to call Ryll's auto collision for him as he had an accident at work involving his own car.Mom had to try several times to get through.This place does fabulous work and is quite popular,both Mom and the skin sibs have used this place whenever they've had a dent and/or repair problem.Paul is an expert mechanic and cares about what he does and how he does it.When he's finished with your vehicle he washes it and waxes it before you can come to pick it up.Its hard to make an appointment for skin bro as he works all over including the Islands which makes it hard to pinpoint a timeframe when he'll be coming home especially if he's coming over on the Ferry or trying to cut through summer traffic now.Hopefully the rest of Mom's day will be quiet without any more disruptions.We only wish the sun would come out and be warm again.Dad got all the deck furniture up and now since he's done it we haven't had a chance to go outside and enjoy it!All our rhododendrons have popped and are in bloom overnight.All this rain has caused all the weeds to grow back in the garden even more now and its too wet to go out there and pull them out.So other than Mom trying to get things done around the house before she has to go out tomorrow,its going to be a nice boring quiet day,the kind we love with Mom home spending time with us now and then in between chores!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for everyone there from everyone here!Loving you always and forever,Dixie&Flock and family too!

  GOOD AFTERNOON JEN LYNN
WELL ITS A NICE DAY BUT KIND OF HAZY. THE SUN IS KIND OF BEHIND THE CLOUDS. MOM SAYS WE WILL GO SIT OUTSIDE ANYWAY THIS AFTERNOON.

MOM WAS ABLE TO ENJOY G-PA'S TASTY BURGERS YESTERDAY BY NOT EATING ALL DAY. SHE JUST HAD HER CARNATION INSTANT BREAKFAST DRINK IN THE MORNING. GUESS MOM WON'T BE ABLE TO EAT A LOT OF MEALS.

HOPE YOU ARE HAVING A NICE DAY. I KNOW PT IS HARD BUT ITS GOIN TO HELP UNCLE CHUCK IN THE LONG RUN. TELL HIM TO HAVE PATIENCE, HE WILL BE STRONGER IN NO TIME.

  Hi, Jenny Lynn
The work day was busy for mom and coworkers and that was even before the doors opened. Weren't a lot of customers at first and they more showed up. Everyone was having to help out at the registers and the manager tried to get more workers but naturally no one wanted to come in but think one or two agreed to arrive a bit early.

There's a big cemetery near one of the other toy/baby stores that was having ceremonies yesterday. Traffic wasn't bad when mom was out there. Temps continued to be warm so it was good for any who wanted to grill.

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

  Good morning happy home !
It's back to school today for mom - yesterday we hung around the house and did some laundry - and you'll be pleased to hear, I didn't pull a single thread from the pocket of any of daddy's tee-shirts ! (Some of them barely have pockets anymore - it's so much fun, one thread at a time . . . snap, pick, pop) Then I helped mom with a bit of school work before heading out onto the deck :) Last night we watched Abbott and Costello - boy are those guys silly !

Daddy is home today to go mow the g'parronts' lawn. After the rain Saturday night, g'ma says it needs it. Tomorrow he has to take g'pa to another dr. appointment - this time just his internist. So, it's still pretty busy here. G'ma is still getting used to her new car, and won't drive on the highway so there are still things mom and daddy need to help out with . . . At least she can get herself to the market, the pharmacy, and one of g'pa's doctors by taking back roads . . .

Hope you all have another wonderful day together ! love you bunches - Cookie

Well, it won't be long and you will all be back in a routine. I know you are all happy to be together again. Be well :)
Happy Memorial Day. Today started out very nice but after lunch we had a storm and the rain went on for a couple of hours. Then after dinner, we had scary t-storm lasting a couple of hours. The power went out several times. Mom is doing better today, she even went in the pool before dinner. We had some BBQ ribs for dinner and I even licked one ... that was brave of me.

  Hi Jenny,
It was another nice day here, nice and sunny with a little bit of a breeze. The weather guesser is saying that the temperature is heading upwards the closer we get to the weekend....in the 90s. Too hot for racing but the parronts will be at the track on Saturday. Dad is super excited to finally get to race this weekend.

Hope your Memorial Day was a good one, and thanks to Uncle Chuck for his service, we stayed home and had salmon and asparagus for dinner.

Wing hugs and much love, Scoober

HI JENNY LYNN AND LALO. I DO HOPE YOU AND UNCLE CHUCK HAD A NICE RELAXING MEMORIAL DAY TODAY. WE THOUGHT ABOUT UNCLE CHUCK TODAY AS WE WATCHED THE NEWS. MY G-PA SERVED IN THE KOREAN WAR AND THEY DO NOT TALK MUCH ABOUT IT. HE WAS WOUNDED SO HE HAS A PURPLE HEART.

THERE ARE SO MANY WOUNDED WARRIORS THAT ARE NOT GETTING THE MEDICAL TREATMENT THAT THEY SO NEED OR DESERVE. LETS HOPE THAT THINGS WILL GET BETTER WITH A NEW PRESIDENT WHOEVER IT SHALL BE.

WE HAD A RELAXING SIMPLE DAY HERE AT HOME. WE GOT OUTSIDE FOR AN HOUR LONG SUNBATH. THEN IT WAS TIME TO GO IN AND GET G-PA'S TASTY BURGERS ON THE GRILL. WE HAD SLICED TOMATOES AND CHIPS. THEN FOR DESSERT THERE WAS A CARAMEL TURTLE ICE CREAM CAKE. IT WAS A SIMPLE BUT FILLING MEAL.

SENDING YOU LOTS OF LOVE AND HUGS

  Hi Jenny Lynn
Ms LaLo,Angel Christy,Ziggy and awesome Uncle Chuck!
First off we'd like to thank Uncle Chuck for all he's done to help make us safe by his tour of duty in the service,and we wish him a wonderful and safe Memorial Day.I'll bet he just is so happy to be sharing it with you both today and we can only imagine just how much you and Uncle Chuck have missed one another!We are all so happy for all of you to be rejoined once again!Please take good care of your sweet Daddy,he's so precious to all of us here!
This morning was a dark,dismal,dreary,dull pouring rain morning.The highs for the day will be 69 the lows of 60 and right now its 68 and freezing.Mom couldn't stand being so cold and she put the heat box back on to chase the chill from the house.Mom got dad off to work this morning and it was lightly raining when he left.All the yellow pollen was in puddles all over our driveway.A half hour later my dad called to tell Mom that they cancelled the parade and no one told my Dad and his crew until after they had half of the barricades set up for the parade.So he and his crew took what they had already put up taken down and he came home.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages and fed us our bean mix and swept our room.Then she made rice krispie treats,apple pie cookies and Macadamia white chocolate cookies.After she cleaned up from that,she did a few chores that she didn't get to yesterday.Other than it being a dark,sleepy kind of a pouring rainy day here,there's nothing exciting or interesting going on.We're just happy that both Mom and dad are here with us today.Its a good thing we had our BBQ yesterday and got to enjoy being outside all day as it looks like today isn't going to be happening any time soon for that!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for everyone there from everyone here!Loving you always and forever,Dixie&flock and family too!

  Hi Jenny Lynn & Angel Christy,

How are you, Girlfriends? It's Oz. Guess you're so happy to be home, Jenny Lynn! Hope your Dad is healing well and listening to his Doctors!

Mom got in the Pool from Wed. thru Sat. Yesterday she had "6" Birthdays to celebrate here and of course, Hope's 4th Birthday. She didn't make it back in time to celebrate the Birthdays here but at least she did get to say Hello to everyone & give out her gifts LOL. Mom said she was having so much fun at Hope's Party with all of her Sister In Law's Friends & Family. Finally about the last 1-1/2 - 2 hrs. she said she better go spend time with her Family LOL! Aunt Shirl cancelled for today since it was suppose to be a washout! It did pour during the night, it's been cloudy & humid and it's starting to rain again. But at least Mom & Aunt Shirl went to Lowes to pick out the Kitchen light & a one pc. faucet for the sink. We're having all leftovers so no cooking today!

Tomorrow & Wed. Mom is watching Hope. She just has this week & next week and her Sister In Law, Chrissy is done School. But she will help her out & watch Hope when her Dad needs his Chemo. Okay, guess that's all for now. Here's a vote for each of you. Bye for now.

Please Thank your Dad for his Service! We really appreciate it and are very grateful!

Love & Winghugs,

  Hello Jen~
I hope you are having a lovely Memorial Day. It's very pretty here today. Mom took McKenzie for a nice long walk this morning. They ran into Bailey the Malamute. McKenzie always gets down on the ground with any dog she meets but today she started belly crawling towards Bailey. Bailey's mom said McKenzie was doing the military crawl!hahahahaha Bailey is very sweet and very calm. Maybe one day McKenzie will get the calm part down!
Mom thought that if she took McKenzie for a nice long walk she could wear her out a bit and have a quieter morning. Didn't work!hahahahaha
Mom is getting stuff ready to take to Goodwill. She has been putting things in boxes for weeks as she cleans out closets and drawers and now it's time to get the stuff out of the house!
Are you guys doing anything today?? Mom is probably going to grab a salad when she goes to get Ian. I know it's not the traditional Memorial day food but she likes them.
Dad is in Wyoming and on his way here. It will be nice to have him here to help out the McKenzie and Merlin. They really have been a handful this week!
Enjoy your day! Please give dad our love and big hugs to you all!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  This Memorial Day
let's remember all of those who served. We thank you.

Well, it is supposed to hit 76 here today, although not until about 1PM which is when I will get my sunbath.
Then the temps will be climbing fast until by Friday we will be in the 90s. That means morning sunbaths, which is when I start giving Mom a hard time about getting into the carrier again. Since she now has worked out several methods for getting me in there, I suppose my tricky ways won't be working so well.

Becky emailed Mom last night, and Gold's decided to waive her 2 weeks notice and let her go. She wasn't surprised, because they don't want her to take her clients with her. They don't know she is going private part time to supplement her Physical Therapy job, but they didn't want to take any chances. Since she already set things up with the clients she wants to keep, like Mom, too bad for them. Mom still has 5 sessions left, but Becky has talked to Talyah about Mom's issues so things will work out just fine with her for those sessions.

Meanwhile as soon as Mom is done blogging we will share either a roast beef sandwich or more enchilada pie for lunch then go outside. Sounds like a fine afternoon to me.

Today is the last day to enter the Prom Pic Contest, so if you want in on the Prom Royal Court you had better get your pic ready to go. Kaji has your pic, Jenny dear, so you are all set.

It stopped raining a couple days ago. Now its in the low 80s. The weather guessers are saying more rain starting on Wed. Dad will have one day to get some of his customers grass if it dos.
The big mowers will be getting a workout.

  HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY FROM FLANNIGAN
Hi Pretty Jen-Jen,
Yes, Momma says it's a lot of work feeding, watering and cleaning up after us birdies. Your poor old Dad had better get back in shape! Start your engine, Uncle Chuck! LOL!

Oldest skin sis arrives this afternoon from MN. So Momma has another trip to the airport today. Unfortunately, one of our major freeways to the airport is closed for several months while it's being re-paved. So that means that Momma has to take surface roads. It isn't too bad as long as it's not during rush hour. Since today is a holiday, it won't be too bad, but it still takes an additional 20 to 30 minutes. When the freeway is open it's about 45 min. So now it's over an hour. Momma is happy to make the trip though.

Momma was trying to get a few blogs in before all the birdies are up, but I'm calling her, "Hello, hello!". We hope you and your Daddy have a wonderful, restful Memorial Day.
Lots of Love and Hugs from Your Friend, Finnegan♥

Thanks for liking our prom pic. Wasn't sure if mom could pull it off.

Know you and Lalo must've missed your dad so much but we seem to recall Lalo just likes to be held anyway. Can't blame her for not wanting to let your dad outta her sight.

Good to have the fresh veggies. We love veggies but yesterday got some apple. It is about the only fruit us 'tiels really like.

No watching of racing here as mom finds it rather boring to watch cars go 'round and 'round on the track for umpteem laps.

  on Memorial Day . . .
The flag flies over this land of the brave and the free
as a symbol of the liberty enjoyed by you and me.
It flutters in the breeze of a quiet afternoon
reflecting sounds of battles in which men died too soon.

The flag flies overhead in cities and in towns
where people seek a haven from worlds turned upside-down.
It tries, gallantly, to honor, on quiet afternoons,
memories of warriors -- young men who died too soon.

The flag flies overhead -- unseen, by some, it seems,
who hurry on their separate ways in search of private dreams.
It waves farewell then, it appears, with the rise of the evening moon,
it gently reaches out to touch the men who died too soon.

  Heya, Miss Jenny!
Awww, that is so sweet that Miss Lalo wants to be held--she sure must have missed your Dad a whole lot! But I bet that means you have to share him, huh?

Quiet day here with Mom. She went over to Grandpa's today and brought me some pecan kringle back. Yummy stuff, for sure! It was a lovely day--patio doors open, beautiful breeze coming in, and the humidity and dew points were bearable! We got into the high 70's but with that breeze, it felt so nice!

Wing hugs coming your way! Cya tomorrow!

So happy for you all to be together at home again.
We are still having internet problems. We are changing providers but the other one won‘t be set up till June 9th so till then we will try to blog as long as this one lets us. It is very frustrating with bird channel problems and now this too so our blogs will be short as long as we can do them. Today was another warm day here again but sure not complaining and enjoying my sunbaths too. We did get rain this afternoon but I got my sunbath in before that though. Today is the one grands 14th birthday and mom gave her the birthday card and money last week so didn’t go down today. School is out for them so mom will see them soon. The grands all keep in touch and this one sent pictures of her ice cream cake her mom for her birthday. “We don’t meet people by accident. They are meant to cross our path for a reason” Left a vote for you ~~Hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hello Jen~
I hope you are having an awesome day!!
Nothing exciting going on here. Merlin and McKenzie are taking a nap so I have a few minute of peace and quiet! Mom has been working on training McKenzie to stay away from Merlin but he comes over to her so he is not helping at all. He wants mom to pick him up and let him sit on her lap. When mom does that McKenzie figures she should sit on moms lap too! She is not a lap dog size anymore so it can be painful for mom! I just sit in my play cage watching the whole thing and thinking to myself that mom should have stuck to feathered pets only!hahahahahahaha
Dad got stuck down south because of tornado warnings. Guess he had to park for a while. His delivering in Montana Tuesday morning so he should be here Wednesday afternoon. He can take care of Merlin so mom doesn't have to keep dragging the dog away!
You know you guys will always be our friends! Nothing is going to change that. Mom is not real chatty when she is tired. As far as we are concerned nothing is different!!
Please give dad our love and big hugs to you all! Enjoy the rest of your day!

Well, I think Lucy stole my thunder and wrote most of our news to you, but I have one thing left...The cygnets on our lake hatched a week ago. There were 6 to start with, but now they're down to 3. Last year all 6 were killed. We so hope that these 3 survive. Momma takes a personal interest in them and considers them her "outside" flock. She loves those little cygnets. They're SO cute! We also have 4 families of goslings. Birdies, birdies inside, outside everywhere!!

Momma and I have missed you and hope you understand how wild and hectic our life is with so many birdies and our commitment to our bird rescue. We so appreciate hearing from you and are so happy to hear that your wonderful Daddy is doing better. I know that you and Miss LaLo must be thrilled to be home with him and that he's in heaven to have you both back. Momma and I send buckets of love to you and your Daddy!
Love and Hugs from Your Friend, Finnegan♥

P.S. Remember our veterans, our heroes, who have fought and given so much for us. May God richly bless them!

  HELLO FROM LITTLE MISS LUCY
Hi Jenny,
Thank you so much for the lovely hatchday wishes and for BOTD. I am so grateful to you and all my BC friends. So much has happened since we last wrote to you. We've had many bird shows, lots of long-term company, and no computer for a week, or computer problems when we did have one, (as it still crashes at least once everyday!) We’ve also had many birdie boarders while their parronts went on big and little trips. As if all that weren’t enough, another bird arrived at our house a week ago Saturday! It’s a black headed caique by the name of Norman. That makes EIGHT of us!! Poor Mommy, she’s so maxed out! Of course, there’s all the regular day to day activities like doctors’ and dentists’ appointments, and almost constant cleaning! (Speaking of dentists...Mommy broke her tooth two days after she was at the dentist's! She couldn't get back in until day after tomorrow. It's a good thing it doesn't hurt.) When all is finished, Mommy sits down at the computer, fully intending to blog to you, and what happens? She promptly falls asleep!! But then what does she expect at 11 pm?! This is why she hasn’t been on to blog for me for so long! By the time she’s finished with all her work, she can’t keep her eyes open. I say, “Excuses, excuses!”

Mommy and I have missed you so much and are so happy to hear that you and Miss LaLo are back home with your Daddy. That's sure to make him feel better! We hope you understand our absence. We so appreciate your blogs to us and love you great bunches! Flanny sends great big bunches of love, too!
Love and Hugs from Little Miss Lucy♥♥

  Hi Jenny Lynn
Oh it sounds like ms LaLo missed your daddy very much and now doesn't want to let him out if her sight and what better way then to be held. I bet that banana with peanutbutter is really good I'm going to have to try that.
My mom doesn't care to much for the Indy 500 either but will also check in from time to time.
Shaping up to be another nice day but once again pretty windy. Have a great day my friend.

Come visit me, Hulk vote Laka BOTM.

  Hi Jenny
It's Popeye.
ADT was here bright and early on Thursday and had the alarm system reprogrammed in less than an hour, at no charge. There's actually not much else going on. Mom cleaned a bunch of our cages while dad cleaned our room. We didn't think it needed cleaning but we were out voted. Today dad is putting the nest boxes back on Blue and Jewel's cage, Skye and Rio's cage, and Cammie and Bourke's cage. Maybe there will be babies this year.
Yesterday mom made her famous Cheesy Garlic Artichoke Dip for a Memorial Day BBQ at her brother's house this afternoon, so we'll all be in lockdown again.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 75 and a low of 55.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Hi Jenny Lynn
Yesterday it was such a beautiful pool day. It was warm, sunny, and the water was wonderful. Mom didn't do any laps, but she did get in the water, which is a step in the right direction. Mom's sister was too tired to go, since they got home after 1 in the morning, but the other people mom knows there did show up, so she was able to chat and read. Those are the main reasons for going, haha.
Today mom will be there again, then later, her daughter will take her out to dinner. Mom's son in law has gone to Ohio to see his mother, and her daughter thought it would be good for the two of them to get together. Mom likes that idea, especially since she doesn't have to cook.
I hope you are having a pleasant spring day, with lots of sunshine and plenty of attention! Hugs, Falco

  Hi, Jenny Lynn
Not overly hot yesteray, whew! Maybe other areas of CA got those dreaded 90s. Wish had a chance of rain here.

That is good you and Lalo have adjusted to being back home. Since you'd both visited Aunt Denise previously probably not that big of a shock to be there for a lil while.

Probably not doing any grilling here. The parronts just don't seem to use the BBQ so much anymore anyway.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  oh Jen it must feel so good
to wake on your own perch and see your dear daddy's face when you open your eyes ! ! I can't tell you how happy I am for you :)

Another hot sticky one here in NY - mom and dad went to the flea market - didn't come home with any fleas but mom found a few little things, daddy ate a funnel cake . . . and boy did they left just in time ! The line of cars waiting to get in was almost 2 miles long ! Now, that's crazy ! Then they went and ordered a new tv for g'pa for Father's Day. He still has a huge boxy analog tv and right now all he really has are his books and tv and g'ma - it's sad cause he was always busy. He did woodworking, and was always building something, he practiced on his trumpet (he was in the Navy Band), loved to work outside . . .

Today is work around the house day - laundry, BACK DECK, and playing with me ! ! Have to get it done today since tomorrow is supposed to rain :( And rain is perfect for doing nothing ! ! with me ! Then hopefully it'll cool down a little . . .

Have a wonderful day with daddy and Lalo ! ! ! love to you all - Cookie

  Hi Jenny Lynn
you, Lalo and your dad must be on cloud nine. its nice to get away but its even nicer when you come back home.

dad was pointing out to mom all the things that need to be weeded. mom says she is quite aware of the weeds and will get it done. it only looks nice for a few months and its great exercise so mom doesn't mind. its very hot right now so we can't sit outside and because of the weeding mom can't sit there with us.

our computer was really bad last night and the ball kept circling and circling and finally mom decided to just unplugged the computer and it took her 20 minutes just to get her computer to go to sleep before she unplugged it. it was pizap who caused all the problems because they told mom to disable her ad block and when mom did it frazzled her computer. they have more ads on pizap than they had on bird channel.

we hear the whippoorwills tonight. not too many but still hear a few mom was afraid they wouldn't come back with all the new housing development going on where they live. hopefully they are ok.

love Cori and Boo Boo

  Hi Jenny Lynn
I bet it feels greyt to be back in your own bed with your dad around you. So happy for the 3 of you. I know Aunt Denise is the best ever but always good to be home.
Oh yes, the wedding shower went very well and she received nice gifts.
Today was a better day for my mom. She said I was a good nurse.
It started out sunny and warm but by the afternoon, we had severe t-storms and several downpours. Then of course it dried up and the sun was back, very Florida.
And, George gator is back in his pond my dad saw him .. all is well.
Hugs
Chyna

  Hi Jenny Lynn
So happy you and Lalo are back home with your dad again and he sure did miss you two!
Last night while we were doing our blogs the internet quit so I didn’t get to finish a lot of my blogs. Dad called the internet company today and they put us on another line but this has happened three times before too and its just a band aid on the fix and never lasts long. If we arent on then the band aid came off again and will be back as soon as possible LOL. This is my blog from yesterday : Today was another pretty day here. This morning mom was getting coats out of the closet in the hall and laying them on the chair. When mom gets a coat out of there I know she is going to go somewhere so I started to watch her really close. She had more then one I could tell that and she laid them on another chair. I went to investigate and mom said she was only going to wash them and hang them out to dry. Later she showed me them all hanging on the line out the window. I got a bath this morning. Then later we went out for my sunbath since it was such a nice warm day. Actually I got two sunbaths today cause we went out again before dinner. “We don’t meet people by accident. They are meant to cross our path for a reason” Left a vote for you ~~Hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Come visit me, ~Gus~ & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  Hi Jenny Lynn
Hey, don't knock cortisone shots. Sure it hurts for a day or two, but it beats the heck out of surgery which Mom is doing her best to avoid from here on out.

I am having a nice Saturday. Sure, I lost Mom to her grocery run with Dad this morning, but she did bring me home sugar snap peas, new grapes and bananas. So I let it slide.

Then we had chile relleno for lunch. Dad brought it home from work, because his company had a retirement luncheon for the Pres of the company and it was catered by a local Mexican restaurant. He brought home four of them, so Mom and I shared one yesterday and one today, while Dad chowed down both of his for dinner last night. I was not sure what it was, but after a couple of tentative nibbles I dug in. Tasty stuff! And now he is working on his famous enchilada pie for the holiday weekend. It takes two days to make, so it will be ready tomorrow and there is enough to eat for two days as well. I love the stuff! Right now the whole house smells of roasted chilies...yum!

After lunch we went outside for a nice long sunbath. It was very quiet for a Saturday. No pedestrians to scream at, and my two little white doggie friends didn't come by either. I got bored after about 45 minutes and made it clear I was done, so we came inside.

Now I am here to say thank you all for your entries to the Prom Court Pic Contest, and surprisingly we have more gents entered than ladies!! So come on, you beauties and get in those prom dresses and bring out the camera.

  Hi ya Jen~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been fun around here. It's fun because I live with a dopey dog and a dopey cat! They are pure entertainment for me!hehehehehe
Merlin decided to sit on the arm of the sofa right next to my play cage. It's far enough away that I can't get him and if he sits still I don't really pay any attention to him. McKenzie brought a toy over for him but he's not interested in that! She brought her new one over for him and he didn't even look at it! McKenzie got on the sofa a sat down right next to him and knocked him off!hahahahahaha She leaned over against him until he went down! He was hissing! Hopefully they will both go to take naps very soon!
I hope you enjoy your day! Should you get bored, come on over. We can make some popcorn and watch the show!!!hahaha
Please give dad our love and big hugs to you all!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥
