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...

Hi! My name is Jen Lynn~Good-bye BC, it has been a wild ride!!

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....

  Hi Jenny Lynn
That will be good to get the weeds whacked so they aren't overgrown. No need to have a messy yard. Really does look so much nicer when things are trimmed and neat.

Glad temps there are lower as the heat is just too much sometimes. Staying normal summer temps this week.

Love sketties!

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

  happy humpday Jen !
Got chilly again overnight, but today starts the warm-up. We're going back up to the mid to upper 80's for daddy's birthday today. The big 60 ! I've been working on a big confetti heap for him and when he comes to play, I'll flap my wings to make it fly for him :) I know he'll love it !

Mom did some work in her room yesterday and will finish tomorrow - my Laura is coming to help and then they'll do some work for Laura's room. She's staying in her same school, just a new class and new level. It's hard to believe that this is the last full week of vacation. Mom has meetings next Thursday and then the kids start day after Labor Day . . .

Have a happy day with dad ! love you ! Cookie

  Heya, Miss Jenny and Dad!
We saw that SP left a note on Miss Sugar's YP page that she found out Dixie was on vacation. Sounds like they will be gone all week, too, unless Mom read the note wrong. That is so awesome--Aunt Rose does everything for everyone else, and it is so cool that her hubby whisks her away for vacation where no one knows. Let's hope no one in the family calls her back home, either.

Another lovely day here, got to 84. Humidity is higher and so is the dew point as we are supposed to get rain later tonight and tomorrow. Mom ran out to pick up her prescription and brought me back fresh papaya, sugar snap and snow peas, my Sunny Millet bread (I have not had that in ages. Mom says it is because I would not eat it and she was tired of wasting it!). Let's just say I am a happy fella today!!!

Wing hugs coming your way!

  Hi Jenny Lynn
We are having about the same weather here too!
Wow another day here on BC!
Today mom bought some corn on the cob and had it for supper. Mom always cuts hers off the cob but leaves me a whole side on the cob. Well I ate and ate and ate and got soooo sleepy and sat there and had corn all over my beaky but just sat there all sleepy eyed. Mom picked me up and put me on my perch and cleaned up the corn mess. I slept on that perch for a long time. That corn sure makes you sleepy LOL. Mom says I must of missed my nap today.
I got my sunbath today and it felt good but that might of tuckered me out too LOL

Hope your afternoon is going well! Great to be able to chat with you guys for a while.
Like I said, nothing much going on here. McKenzie finally calmed down and I think she is about ready for a nap. There are some people in the pool so she is sitting on the end of the sofa watching them!!
We do hope the rest of your day is just fabulous and that dad's nurses visit goes well tomorrow!

  hello there Jen !
Look at us ! August 23rd and here we are . . . delightful :) Know what else is great ? Daddy actually had to get up during the night and close the windows ! Yup, it got chilly ! I can't remember the last time that had to happen . . .

So between heading into school for a short while this morning and taking the g'nephew to his gym class, mom wants to get the floors done around here ! They're pretty yucky (she thinks I'm to blame ! Believe that ? sheeesh !) Then we have to wrap up daddy's birthday present - it's tomorrow !

Have a great Tuesday ;) Love you - Cookie

  Hi ya Jen~
Hope the day is going well. We tried calling a while ago and got no answer. Mom will try again later.
Haven't heard from Dixie in 3 days now and I have to say I am quite worried. It's not like him. I know they were going to have a vacation soon but he usually mentions it to me. With his age and Nana's age, I always worry when I don't hear from him. I'm praying everything is okay!
Cooler here also and it's very nice. We cleaned out George and Gracie this morning. We were a day late on getting that done since yesterday was all about getting dad ready to go. He is off to Spokane, Idaho and then Nevada.
The bad mom forgot to get me an apple so she needs to stop at the store after dropping Jennifer off!! She tried to make up for it by giving me a tiny vanilla cookie. It's just not an apple!! I did eat it to keep my strength up until I get my apple!
Enjoy the day!! Please give dad our love and big hugs to you both!

  hi there Jen and uncle Chuck !
WOWZER ! We had big time rain yesterday !! I mean it dumped ! And don't you know it was when mom was driving home from the bbq ? It ended up taking close to 2 hours to drive 57 miles ! Most of it highway . . . but I was happy to see her when she got home. Daddy told her I got to my yelling perch (the highest spot on my playgym) at supper time to holler for her . . . every flock member is supposed to be in their places for meals !

Today mom and dad are going to try to clean the bedroom carpet for the fall - mom wants to get all the around the house things done before school starts up again. Tomorrow she'll go do the rest of the decorating in her classroom - yup, me and dad did lots of cutting yesterday :)

At least after the storms, the air is wonderful - the humidity is gone and it's only supposed to be high 70's today . . . perfect ! Have a great day today - love Cookie

  Heya, Miss Jenny and Dad!
Glad the instructions help--Mom says the original ones were okay but she rushed thru them to get them out to everyone. The ones she sent out were definitely a lot more detailed. Glad they worked out for your Dad!

Oh what a delightful day! Humidity down, dew point down, temp in the 70's. Watched the last of the Olympics today until Mom went over to Grandpa's. They had on the Brewers game, and it was so cool to have them win on Counsell's birdthday! Mom did weeding today, and got to meet the neighbor across the street that did Grandpa's bushes. They also exchanged phone numbers just in case. Grandpa is so frail, but still sharp mentally. Thank heavens. Anyway, Mom is so grateful for good neighbors who watch out for Grandpa.

Mom found out today that her friend Sue in Eau Claire's hubby has a small tumor in his bladder. He is having it biopsied to see what it is. If you could say a prayer for him, that would be very appreciated.

  Hi Jenny,
Polu says you wanna come with us on the mixer? It's gonna be a wild ride! :) BooBoo agrees and so Polu, Pearl, Cookie, Chipper and Kaji all go into one cart.

Hang on tight says the operator!!

Okay you heard him, everybody hang on!!!

The mixer is slow at first, then it speeds up. This is the order they were in. Pearl, BooBoo, Polu, Chipper, Cookie then Kaji. Guess who got squished???

yup all the little ones came out of the mixer a little thinner and smushed. They are all dizzy when they walk out of the cart and hafta hold on to something as they are all wobbling.....

But all good good fun!!!

Love, hugs and a vote.

Started off gloomy here but soon turned into a beautiful day sunny and in the low 70's. Almost cool but like you said probably because we aren't use to it.
Not much going on here today my parronts just had friends over to do their fantasy football draft now the rest of the day should be quiet other than mom making some cookies. She's home so that's all that matters. Have a good evening my friend.

  Hello Jen~
Hope you guys are having a great day!
Mom's trip to Kent was a bit longer than she thought it would be. At least she did not get lost! She had the great idea of driving up to another freeway since the detour was backed up for miles. Unfortunately about a billion other people had the same idea!hahahahahaha McKenzie enjoyed it since they went through the valley where there are lots of farms. She had a real sniff fest!hehehehehe There will be pumpkins galore there in a few months!
Today is a quiet day but Sunday usual is. Dad is leaving tonight so mom is finishing up laundry. Jennifer and I are watching a movie. It seems a bit silly but she likes it and I like having the company!!
Hope your day is wonderful!! Please give dad our love and big hugs to you all!! Mom will try to get a phone call in tomorrow when everything is more quiet around here.

  hi chatty Jen !
Happy Sunday - we're supposed to have some thunderboomers this afternoon - hope not, mom is going to a bbq and I would hate for my birdie bag to get soaked ! Me and dad are going to do some cutting for mom's bulletin boards so she can hang them on Tuesday.

Last night I supervised some vacuuming around my stuff. It has to be done so much more when I'm molting ! Which does make me cranky - yesterday I was very content on the sofa with mom giving me skritches and she asked me to step up - well, I could see that she wanted to put me back on my playgym ! So I fluttered to the floor and went right for her toes ! That'll teach her !

Have a lovely Sunday dear friend ;) love Cookie

  Heya, Miss Jenny and Dad!
Hope the info helped your Dad--and Mom is happy to do it as she discovered more stuff the more she is on YP. And that is so cool you were super chatty today! Guess you had a lot you wanted your Dad to know, huh?

Raining here off and on all day. Got to the farmer's market late as Mom had more issues with the computer and Office 365. Took hours to get resolved with Microsoft and then the antivirus did not work and Mom had to uninstall it and it took 3 tries to reinstall everything. She ran scans to make sure nothing was funky, and all is now okay. Sheesh!!

Got to the farmer's market too, and Mom was so happy that I went in my carrier so well. Had my picture taken again, too. Might be famous--I think the lady said she takes pix for the farmer's market facebook page. Guess I will have to go check, huh?

  Hi Jenny,
I am back again...mom just hasn't been on. She is happy watching football again. The Hawks are 1-1 but still need to get it together but mom is sure that they will. It was cool to see Tony McDaniels back and now it looks like Will Tukuafu is back as well.

Mom had a great day yesterday and thanks for the birthday wishes.

The parronts got the BBQ out and got it all cleaned up and ready to use. Mom is planning to use it soon but it ended up way to hot out so mom is waiting for a cooler day.

Not a whole got going on here lately. Dad did have a great weekend last weekend. It was super hot but he broke his own record at the track. The parronts went on Saturday and then on Sunday as well. They never do that as it is just way to tiring. They went on Saturday but left the trailer there and came home to us, they went back the next morning. Dad had a bad day on Saturday...everything he touched hurt him. He cut his palm, a couple of fingers and got pinched a few times as well. He was just like mom...lol

We went to bed last night with thunderstorms and woke up to more rain. On the bright side it's finally cooler and that nasty humidity is going away I really hope we have seen the last of that.
Going to be a quiet weekend here too. Mom is finishing up the last of the laundry and doing a massive clean job kind of a welcome fall kind of clean. At least she's home with me so I can't complain. Hope you guys have a good weekend. Squawk with you soon my friend.

Have to make this a short note today because mom is driving up to Kent. It's not really far but she doesn't know how long it's going to take to get back because the south bound lanes are closed for the weekend and she will have to detour!
Please give dad our love and big hugs to you both! Sorry we have not been able to call lately but we hope things will calm down very soon and we will have time to chat! We think about you both everyday!!

  morning pretty Jen
First, let me clarify - although the peach was fresh off A tree, it wasn't OUR tree - it was a friend's . . . mom wishes we had one of our own. She loves fruit as much as I do !

Mom is almost done in her classroom - she's meeting my Laura on Thursday to finish up with the work - first they'll do mom's, then go down county to do my Laura's . . . Since my Laura is changing classes, she has a whole new curriculum to learn so mom is going to help her get started.

Today is visit the g'parronts day in our house . . . and you know what that means - sugar snap peas ! And wax beans ! Mom remembers when she was a kid and her dad always had a big garden, she'd plop herself down right in it and snack right off the plants !

Have a great Saturday - love you ! Cookie

Moms daughter has a garden so she gives us produce from it too.Well here it is Friday so looks like we are going to get another weekend of BC since its rumored BC doesn’t work on the weekends!
This morning mom did some cleaning and then I was scooped up and given a bath and then outside for a sunbath. It was 10:30 and the sun was out but not real humid or too hot which felt pretty good. After that the rest of day mom and I just took it easy and played. These are the greatest kind of days!!

We had some strong storms this morning with heavy rain and strong winds which knocked over all our veggie plants again. Those poor plants sure have got beat up this summer. Nice your dad got those veggies nice to have friends that grow them because like you said the plants sure can produce a lot.
Still pretty humid here but that cool front isn't to far off now. Have a good evening my friend.

Hope the day is going great! It's going to be very hot here today. Not usual for us but it does happen once in a while. It's a once in a while day!Hehehehehe
Mom put the portable A/C on at 10 am. She says she does not want it to get so hot that it will take hours to cool the room down.
The portable A/C sits in the corner of the dining room when we are not using it. McKenzie must not have noticed it before because she is afraid of it! Mom put it by the window in the living room because you have to vent it. McKenzie's toy basket is right next to it so she got her toys and moved them across the room. She was eyeing the A/C the entire time! It was really funny!! She wants to make sure they stay safe!
Back to work for mom tonight. Weekends are just too short!!

  hi Jen, flock and uncle Chuck !
Definitely NOT a TGIF - each one that goes by means summer is closer and closer to being over !

Mom's plan is to finish up with her classroom between today and Monday. She'll do all the cutting of letters (whoops, daddy will do all the cutting ! I'll take care of all the scraps !) and things for bulletin boards over the weekend and just have to hang them on Monday. At least that's the plan - she also has a list of things she wants to do here . . . we'll see about that.

No walk last night as the heat is creeping back in - they tried but daddy started complaining about melting and came home - and that's all the news from my perch for today ! Have a great Friday - love you bunches ! Cookie

  Hi Jen Lynn
well comcast came to the house today and took away the vcr. and gave mom a refurbished(used) one because they have updated them. mom lost all her movies she had saved that she liked and planned to watch. the new vcd isn't any better than the one they took away but they told mom if she didn't take it her tv would no longer receive the proper signals. mom stayed up until 4am trying to watch recordedshows before they came and took it away.

g-pa son flew back to florida last night. he called mom this evening to let her know what is going on. mom hasn't been over to see g-pa for a few days since his 2 sons are handling things and mom doesn't want to antagonize them. the older son got g-pa moved back to the assisted living facility. he isn't in the room with g-ma but directly underneath her on the floor below. mom asked how g-pa back was because that is the only thing he has been complaining about. the stepbrother said g-pa is on morphine for the pain. mom is keeping her opinion to herself about that. apparently they didn't think to try tylenol. oh well. anyway stepbrother told mom to start cleaning things out of the the g-parents apartment and have it all emptied out in the next 2 weeks. i guess thats the timeline for using morphine on a 100 year old man who until up to a month ago still walked 3 miles every day.

now about me. i have been sung my perches more and more. mom had Cori and me outside for awhile today to gets some sun. i sat on the sponge while i was outside but as soon as mom bought me back inside i jumped to my highest perch. today mom watched me jump from cup holders in my cage. anyway mom fed me dinner on my sponge tonight and i wouldn't eat it. mom was waiting for that. i think mom might try and put my food in my upper cup holder tomorrow. tonight in the bed room mom watched me test my leg by putting weight on it and swiveling my hips. mom thinks it must still hurt but is feeling better.

mom doesn't want to go to the nursing home tomorrow to start cleaning out the apartment. it is too depressing. tomorrow is the last day the public pool is open and mom might go and spend a little time there to try and relax

love Cori & Boo Boo

Hope you guys had a great day! It's going to be very hot here for the next 2 days, nearly 100. The portable A/C will be out in the morning and mom will turn it on before it gets too hot in here.
Dad is feeling a bit better but his jaw is still swelled up. He says the pain pills help a little. Hopefully the antibiotics will clear it all up quickly.
Seahawks are playing tonight. It's Vikings 11 Seahawks 0 in the 3rd quarter. Don't like to see that!

  good morning beautiful
It's still warm - but at least not a/c warm (except for when mom was cooking the corn for dinner). Mom went with daddy yesterday morning and came home with some fresh fruits and veggies for me :) After a cookout (first night cool enough), we shared a peach right from the tree - yum !

Then I had another bath - I'm just so uncomfortable with this molt. There've been so many feathers on the floor in the morning when I get up, mom says she can make another Cookie ! Silly mom ! I spent lots of time working on my heap yesterday - I now have 3 paper towel rolls that I have to bring into my cage each morning ! Yep, mom did windows !

How did daddy make out with his visiting nurse ? More good news we hope !
Have a terrific Thursday - love you ! Cookie

Hope you had a wonderful day!! It was okay around here! We had Mexican take out for dinner. Mom has been up all day and is really tired. She is off tonight and tomorrow night so she'll get some rest!
It's been a long day. Dad got an abscessed tooth and got sick. He had a doctors appointment this morning for a check up and didn't say anything but by this afternoon it was really painful so mom told him to go back to the doctor and get pain meds and antibiotics. He did and now he feels much better.
We are going to have a quiet evening and mom will finally get some sleep!!
You enjoy your evening too! We don't want you guys to think we are ignoring you! It's just been a very long week!

Not surprising that even a favorable doc visit at the VA would be quite tiring. Even with appointments always end up waiting. Glad the report was good as sure lifts any worry your dad might've had.

Temps here staying in the low 80s so quite reasonable for summer. The parronts got a lot of errands done before it was too warm.

Kinda bittersweet that yesterday was our 6th anniversary of being on BC. Still here and waiting for the ship to sink.

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

  happy humpday Jen !
We're still here ! ! A whole extra month !

With last week's heat, g'parronts' lawn never got done - mom wouldn't let daddy do it. So guess where they're going today ? And it's not even the weekend ! It's still pretty hot though so they'll go early and get home to me by lunchtime hopefully. With it this hot (high 80's, but dew points between 70-72) and the a/c going pretty much always, daddy says we should have bought stock in the electric company ! That's going to be a wowzer of a bill when it comes ! !

Mom got some more work done in her room yesterday - she hopes to finish tomorrow with the unpacking. Then it's just the decorating - and that part is fun ! There's a new first grade teacher in the building and guess what ? Mom had her way back when ! ! She's feeling old . . .

Hope you have a terrific day and stay cool :) love you - Cookie

  Hi Jenny,
Well moms first day started out muggy and hot as she walked to the bus stop which took all of 6 minutes. Then it took the bus like 15 minutes to get to town as it goes on the freeway. She really didn't get to do much today except read the manual but it wasn't specific enough cause her computer wasn't ready. The tech guys are workin on it but moms body had to physically be there then they start. Dunno why they can't do that ahead of time. Mom was lost without the puter thing. So she just read some of the case files that was interesting.

After work it took her 15 minutes to walk up to the bus stop then it took 45 minutes to get home and by the time she got home it was 6 pm. Hopefully she can get parking as some of the girls told if she had parking before then they just push her name up the list. Yay! But she is waiting for the other secretary to give her the forms to fill out first.

So it will be another fun day at the beach carnival.

Everyone rides first, that way the rides don't make them sick. With the eggception of Kaji, he did the opposite then got sick.

Laka is tending to his tummy with some 7-up that might help calm his poor tummy.

While Cookie and Sallykins get their portraits taken Polu, Chipper, Gus, Sugar and Cori try their best at the dime toss games. Gus's pants is falling from all the coins he brought to play. Polu says here let me help you unload them coins. While Chipper gets a pair of suspenders for him to hold up his pants. Heeheehee

Laka pulls 2 budgies that was stuck to her tail feathers as she got off the ride. They happily chirp and go on another ride by themselves.

Pearl and Pookie and Dixie are at the food booths pigging out on corn on the cob, cotton candy, candy apples and corn dogs. Laka says you might get a sore tummy if you guys eat too much! They just ignore her and keep eating away. Candida, Silver and BooBoo play the water horse game with the water squirter.

Mrs BB waddles and gets something to eat and asks Pookie them don't eat it all, save some for me!! They just laugh and tell her to hurry up and order before its all gone.

Hugs to you all and a vote too.

Love,

Angel Pookie and flock

  Hi Jen Lynn
i do have some good news to share. a house next door to us is being totally renovated by someone who plans to flip it. because of all the jackhammering being done to correct leakage the big black ants have decided to take refuge in our house. normally that wouldn't be great news but when you have super Boo on the job those ants are quickly taken care of. Boo Boo hasn't really done much for about 6 weeks now. she sits on her sponge all day long and at night during playtime in the bedroom she takes a half interest in playing with her shiny things and stops to rest quite often. tonight it was a different story. she spied a ant running on the rug and quick as you can she hopped over and stabbed it with her beak. then she pounded it some more and mom thought she had eaten it when all of a sudden she spits it out and its still alive. she stabbed it some more and then swallowed it and then took a nice drink of water. mom knew at that point it had been eaten. she did this with 4 other ants this evening. each time after swallowing taking a big drink of water probably because they are very bitter. i am very glad Boo Boo is here to save me because i don't like any kind of bug. they all scare me.

love Cori

  Hi Jenny Lynn
Yep mom always needs a rest up day after a busy day too!
We get another day on BC so we chat with our friends one more day at least.
Mom went to the doctor this morning and guess one of moms blood tests was high so she had to retested for that. That was the reason for the appointment apparently. Trouble was the nurse didn’t do the first blood draw right and it hurt and she said the needle turned so then had to use moms other arm and it didn’t hurt. Mom has had so much blood drawn she knows when its not right. After that mom went to the grocery store and then on to the fruit stand. I put my list in with moms so she came home with lots of goodies.
It was hot and humid here today and when mom came out of the grocery store there was drops of rain on moms car so apparently it rained while she was inside the store. Then this evening we had a storm and tomorrow is suppose to be cooler. I might get a sunbath tomorrow if it cools down but is sunny so we will see.

  Heya, Miss Jenny and Dad!
The residents did not bring in the agitators. They show up wherever they see something that they can agitate about. With social media, news travels as soon as you post something, so those from Chicago can show up here in a short period of time. Most residents in that area are home owners, and are hard working folks. They do not want any agitators coming around!

Well, it was quiet in Milwaukee last night. Thankfully! There were a couple of things that went on, but nothing like on Saturday or Sunday night. Mom says that the owner of the gas station that was burned down actually came to America to escape violence in India. I am assuming that he is Sikh, as they have a large presence here in Milwaukee. You might have heard about the shooting at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek 4 years ago. It was horrible. The Sikh are a loving people, so it is particularly heartbreaking. The gas station owner does not know if they will be rebuilding or not.

We are warm at 84 degrees, with the humidity at 53% and dew point of 64%. It is going to be lots worse tomorrow and Thursday. Home day! Home day! Mom says she is content to be at home, but might run to the store tomorrow. Or to the apple orchard, as we are getting low on popcorn. Gotta have that!!

Wing hugs coming your way!
Your buddy,
Kaji

Come visit me, Kaji ~ So glad we had this time together.

  Hello Jen~~
Hope you guys are having a nice quite day and dad is recovering from his trip yesterday.
Mom picked dad up when she got off work this morning. Of course McKenzie went nuts when they got home. Dad went to take a shower and a nap and McKenzie is whining and scratching at the bedroom door. Mom keeps having to get up and bring her back to the living room. Ian played with her for a while so she is being quite for now. Won't last! Jennifer will be going to work in a few minutes so that will get McKenzie out of the house for a while so that I can have some peace and quiet!
Mom has one more night and then she gets her weekend. It really has been a very rough week with way more work than mom can handle. She is doing okay with it and will finish it all up tonight but she is really tired and can't sit for long before she starts to get drowsy. Dad will pick Jennifer up tonight so mom can go to bed when he gets up and get some sleep! I just can't wait for the weekend to start!
You all have a perfect day and get some rest! Please give dad our love and big hugs to you both!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

Come visit me, Sugar ~ Thanks for all the AWESOME Memories.

  Hi Jenny Lynn
Yah so happy to hear your dad's appointment went well that's great news.
Going to be a touch warmer here this week with some humidity but shouldn't be anything to extreme but much cooler weather is right behind that so we will be looking forward to that.
Should be a good week since my mom is on vacation I will get lots of time with her. Have a great afternoon my friend.

Come visit me, Hulk GoodBye BC Thanks For The Memories.

  Hi Jenny Lynn
Ms LaLo,Christy,Ziggy and sweet Uncle Chuck!
We are so relieved and happy that Uncle Chuck's VA Hospital visit went really well and we too are more than happy with any greyt report on any of his medical visits there!
Like you its going to be another boring day here with Mom working on chores in the house and other things that need attention.But then that's the kind of day we love as it keeps Mom home with us with a hope of us getting out to the deck later on for some sun and a shower or two!
The highs for the day will be 82 while the lows will be 70 and right now its 81.As the day wears on its feeling more and more humid and the floors already feel wet and damp when one steps on them.I guess we shouldn't complain because all too soon the fall will be here which is followed by winter and that means freezing cold,snow,ice and shoveling and no deck time filled with sun and showers!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all our 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!

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

  good morning Jen
Guess what ? We slept without the a/c running - first time since we got back from vacation ! Sure, it was warm, but the fresh air blowing in with the window fans did feel good. We still have today to get through - then some storms tonight and more normal hot temps coming up.

Mom worked in her room for a while yesterday and will probably go back today again - hopefully get the furniture set - then comes the unpacking of all the boxes . . . all her bookshelves were painted over the summer and look so fresh and nice ! Time is coming close - she goes for meetings on Sept. 1st, then the kids start right after Labor Day . . .

What good news from your daddy - it put a big smile on mom's face when she read his test report ! Have a great day - love you ! Cookie

Come visit me, Cookie loves his friends !, BC Library Now Open & Fly with the angels my Sally.

  Hi Jenny Lynn
Sure hope Dads VA hospital visit went well!
We get another day on BC so we chat with our friends one more day at least.
Skin sis swimming pool has a leak so a guy is going to come tomorrow and scuba dive in it to see where its leaking. The water is slowly going down though.
Mom has a doctor appointment tomorrow though she has no idea what for! When mom was there 6 months ago the doc told mom to make an appointment for 6 months so mom did then and tomorrow is the day. Guess if nothing else she will get her leg where she has the hole in her leg that isn’t quite healed yet.
The fruit stand is now open since it was sold and today was the first so mom wants to get there this week some day. I am making my list LOL.
