Dad continues to have health issues, but hopefully he is getting a all the time. For now it is just watching the protein, because the chemo left his kidneys weak.

Kiddo flew into Dad's warehouse, but the owner of the company said he had to go OR ELSE! Finally after a week they managed to lure Kiddo down using a baloney sandwich as bait. After trying unsuccessfully to find his owners, he tried living for a few weeks with Dad's co-worker and her African Grey. That didn't work out (the grey was jealous and so was Kiddo), so he came to live with us. He was supposed to be Dad's bird, but he bonded with Mom from day one, and now we are best friends. I love him dearly. Although I had never thought of having a bird as a companion, now I can't imagine life without him. The first thing I do each day is join him for breakfast and beaky kisses. We share our lives and love. What joy he has brought to my life.

Hi! My name is Kiddo says vote Chipper #257319 for BOTM!!

I am a Senegal Parrot from Simi Valley, CA.

Dad: Superbrat & Falcon.
Mom: Cupcake & Sugar Butt
At bedtime: Bonzo


12 years old   M

Senegal Parrot

Raw cashews and almonds. Sweet potatoes, grapes and bananas. Dried papayas are definitely parrot candy.

The heating grate over the door (when the heater isn't on). My playstands. Mom's kneecap and shoulder.

Dad: I am very jealous of the time Mom spends with him. She should be with me 24 hours a day.

Mom loves to cuddle me when it is time to go to sleep at night. I love to snuggle up under her chin and coo at her. We have a great time together.

Doing the "Godzilla stomp" when Dad sticks his head in to say hello. I am a very tough hombre. I know I could take him out any time I want. I am just biding my time.....Of course, I do dance with him, too. I am the best dancer in the house!.

Watch your fingers....my beak is sharp..

  Hi Kiddo
I agree with you ... can't let a good treat go to waste! Sorry that you have to share your mom with the classes. But, at least your dad gets Wednesdays as good days with you. I'm the same way. If mom is around, I don't want dad. But, I love my dad if mom isn't available.
Here we go again, the weather forecast for Thursday and Friday is snow! I wish we would get a break!
It’s back to the hot chocolate for me.

KIDDO, I WENT TO CODIE'S PAGE LAST NIGHT TO WISH HIM A HAPPY HATCHDAY UP AT THE RAINBOW BRIDGE. I TOLD HIM THAT HE WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED AND THAT I MISS THE GREAT TIMES WE ALL HAD.

SO YOUR MOM DYED HER FEATHERS, MOM USED TO DO HERS BUT GAVE UP 10 YRS AGO. SHE SAID IT WASN'T WORTH IT. THE SUNBATH TIME SOUNDS GREAT. OH NEVER EVER LET A GOOD NUTRIBERRY GO TO WASTE. I LOVE NUTRIBERRIES.

MOM WENT TO THE GYM TODAY THEN CAME HOME. SHE LATER WENT OUT TO EAT WITH HER SISTER AND A FRIEND. THEN SHE CAME HOME FOR OUR SPECIAL CUDDLE TIME.

IT WAS A NICE DAY TODAY, IT WAS 50 DEGREES AND BRIGHT AND SUNNY.

G-PA HAS HIS GOOD DAYS AND HIS BAD DAYS. HIS WEIGHT IS AT 138 RIGHT NOW. HE STILL GETS LIGHTHEADED SOMETIMES WHEN HE STANDS UP. HE IS HOLDING HIS OWN THOUGH AND PLANS TO START RIDING HIS BIKE. THE DR TOLD HIM TO GO AHEAD AND DO WHAT HE CAN. THE DR SAID THAT HE WILL NEVER BE 100% BUT 85% IS PRETTY GOOD.

MOM HAS HER APPT WITH AUDIOLOGY IN THE MORNING AND THEN WITH THE ENT DR. HE WILL PROBABLY PUT A TUBE INTO THE LEFT EAR TO RELIEVE THE PRESSURE IN IT.

THEN FRIDAY SHE SEES THE NEUROSURGEON FOR HER BACK AND NECK. WITH THE INCREASE IN HER EXERCISING ITS BEEN BOTHERING HER BACK QUITE A BIT WITH PAIN IN HER LEFT LEG. MOM'S TRAINER WANTS TO KNOW WHAT THE DR WILL SAY.

I HOPE YOU HAVE A OWNDERFUL DAY TOMORROW. ENJOY THE SUN FOR ME. STILL TOO COLD HERE TO GO OUTSIDE.

  Heya, Kiddo!
Yeah, I think Mom will adjust to not working once the unemployment stuff runs out. Mom continues to look--because they require it, and she figures with her luck, she would be the one they audited. But it is getting to be half-hearted. And Mom is gonna figure out what she needs to survive, and to pay for her health insurance once her HSA money runs out. She figures she will do that next month, as that is when the unemployment runs out. She is also looking forward to nicer weather when we can get out for walks. She is not bored, but she is mentally exhausted from looking all the time.

The sun was out today, but gosh, it sure was not warm at all. Only got to about 45. Then the clouds rolled in and we are supposed to get rain tonight and all day tomorrow. At least it is not snow! Mom and I had a nice day--I watched to make sure that the cable TV guy did not do anything funny when he came to check on the cable. Mom tried to watch the Brewers game last night and when she turned on cable, the box showed the numbers, but she did not see one darn thing on the TV. Just completely black screen. So she called to find out if it was out in her area, and the rep told her it was fine, but maybe her HDMI cable burned out. But this morning the cable was on just fine. Go figure. The cable guy made sure everything was fine, and told Mom that they probably were doing some work. The cable, the box and the TV are perfect. That makes Mom breathe a sigh of relief. And that guy was actually pretty nice. I did not have to attack him.

Mom found out that she did not get the job at Harley today. They decided to go with someone who fit better. Amazing--she did not know that they would offer to someone on the basis of a phone interview. So, one more to put a line thru. Her old job is still looking for two more folks for jobs similar to what Mom did. Silly place won't consider Mom for the job, even though she knows pretty much everything there is to know about the company. She has not heard about the other job (Johnson Controls) or the hospital software training one. There are not a lot of jobs out there--just tons of the same job for different agencies.

Happy (you KNOW what day it is!) Humpday!

  Hi Kiddo
The leak in Nana's bathroom got worse and this morning when she went in to wash up she stepped in a soggy carpet and found out the pipe underneath was really leaking big time,Mom tried reading her do it yourself fix it book but she had no idea what to do,so Nana put a bucket under the sink where the leak was to catch the water and hopefully the man from True Value will get there early tomorrow!I think you are so right about True Value!Mom has never had a bad eggspierience there ever and everyone is always so courteous and very helpful!
Today is a really strange day here!This morning when Mom got dad off to work it was thickly foggy outside,then about an hour later it started to really rain hard,then it stopped and the sun came out bright for about 30 minutes,then it started to get eerily dark out(like night time)it was so dark you needed to put the lights on,but Mom didn't and then did it ever rain so hard Mom thought that it was raining in the house!You couldn't see out the windows and the thunder really shook the house and then we lost our power!As Mom went running for the computers and the tv,the power came back on,so she had to reset the clocks for the hundredth time! How I wish that we could have the temperatures you are getting with the warm sunshine and the ability to stay outside and enjoy it all!Now you're a fid of my own heart,you just can't let those nutriberries go to waste!
Mom sure misses zumba and just loved it so much!She's hoping the new dr that skin sis has lined up will hurry up and get the surgery done soon so they can go back to doing zumba as skin sis just loved it also! Now your dad is safe with you as long as your sweet Mom isn't there for you to protect her! My dad always comes in with snacks for us so we are good to him and our baby fister Candida gives him little hard pinches on his arm every now and then,Mom calls them love bites,but they sure do make dad scream OUCH!really loud!Dad is beginning to dote on her as they have dinner together every night now,she gets full run of the dining table and gets to share his dinner right from his plate!That's what I used to do,but Mom doesn't want me to get hurt because when I'm on the dining table with Candida,she always likes to push me around!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hi Kiddo
We did hear about that T Rex. All T Rex dinos are from North America. They didn't live anywhere else. The Carnegie, where mom works, has the holotype T Rex. That's the first one ever described in the scientific literature. They have 5 holotypes in the Dinosaur hall, though.
Today might be mom's last day blogging for a couple of days. Tomorrow is the surgery, and the follow up appointment is on Friday, so we may not be back until Saturday.
It got really chilly here today, not expected to get out of the low 40s, and there's a possibility of some snow flurries. I say SPRING is no time for snow! Phooey!
Mom cleaned the outdoor raptor mews and aviaries today then did the middle room of the hospital called the Runs. It's for a wide variety of animals, but there were all birds in there today, except for one snapping turtle. She hasn't done that room for awhile, so it was interesting to her.
Then she went to the grocery store to get our veggies and fruits, since she didn't go yesterday. (She and Lena had walked to lunch and back, so she had to come straight home to put in the eye drops the doc wants her to use.) After buying our goodies, mom went to the nail salon to get the polish removed from one nail on each hand prior to the surgery. Tonight she has to go back to the center for a class on animal medicine, but she's going to get some laundry done before she leaves.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of attention and maybe some sun and warm weather, too. Hugs, Falco

Today we are visiting Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. There are many wildlife animals that include: koalas, kangaroos, Tasmanian devils, wombats, echidnas, and various species of reptiles as well as the platypus.

There are also many Australian parrots and cockatoos as well as other Australian birds.

This was founded in 1927 and it is the oldest and largest koala sanctuary in the world.

  Hi Kiddo
It's Popeye.
Yesterday, mom didn't go into the police station. Instead mom and dad took the two baby lovebirds to the bird store so they could go to their new Forever homes. The two little jewels were on their best behavior, too. They just sat in the carrier and looked cute. Dad put them in a cage next to a Green Cheek and they instantly went over to him and started a conversation. Dad misses them already. Then mom and dad stopped at Lowe's and picked up some keepers so dad could fix the glass on the entertainment center. Then they stopped at Costco so dad could pick up more groceries and stuff. When they got home it was time to fix dinner.
Today mom will go into the police station and dad will work around the house.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Hi, Kiddo
Well, we did fly over to the Milonga page Monday, but think our blog disappeared! So we had to redo our votes for the 21th and then did the one for the 22nd.

The parronts saw some wet car windows yesterday morning, but that was it for any rain. Guess anything we got was during the night. Very windy yesterday, but still sunny and nice otherwise.

Good that your mom stocked up on the nutriberries since you now eggspect 'em for sunbath time.

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

Mom's vacation is almost over - she's staying home today though. Says she wants a day of peace before heading back to school tomorrow. Vacations aren't supposed to be all work ! And that's what they did - mom and dad spent a lot of it painting at the g'parronts - except for Monday - my day of doom ! ! It's taking a little getting used to walking around and not hearing my toe nails click, click, click ! But at least I still have my flight feathers :) YIPPEEEEEE

THEN MOM CAME HOME AND WE HAD LUNCH AND SHE RESTED. THEN AT 3PM SHE WENT TO THE GYM FOR A GOOD 1 1/2HR WORKOUT. SHE SEES THE TRAINER TOMORROW.

MOM DOESN'T GET ON THE BC TILL LATE SO THAT IS WHEN SHE IS GETTING HER VOTES IN. SO I HOPE THEY ARE BEING COUNTED.

How awesome that you can use 409 cleaner spray on the ants and its ok to have it around us too!Mom will definitely have to pick some of that up when she goes out on Friday now! Mom has tried everything from the white chalk line,to ant traps to Borax and Sugar which is good but its not really for use inside the house!Dad just found another ant on our dining bench tonight so here they come!
Today is my fister Celine's hatchday and she's 16 years old!Mom will give her a special time tomorrow as she was gone all day today on her errand run with Nana and skin sis!Mom was out all day today with skin sis and Nana and they ran some errands and then wound up back at Nana's house where Mom tried to get the shut off valve to be shut off but it wouldn't budge,(on her bathroom sink)she tried WD40 and a rubber gripper thing and some pliers, but nothing worked so they went to True Value and the nice man there showed Mom and Nana just what they needed to get the faucet fixed and Mom and Nana know nothing about plumbing so the man is going to come to Nana's house on Thursday to fix it for her.Mom will be home all day tomorrow and we will get some free time then as she cleans our cages and does some of the housework!Its supposed to rain here tonight and into tomorrow so Mom is happy she doesn't have to go out in it!Oh just think,being able to have a wonderful sun bath in the best temperature ever 72,you can't beat 72,that's Mom's favorite temperature and she has that programmed into her heat box she sits beside as she takes dictation for my blogs!It was a sunny day here but in the 60's with the wind which made everything feel colder than it was as usual!
Hey,that's a greyt deal that you have there,your sweet Mom goes to get you some books to read with her and she comes back with nutraberries for you too!You just can't beat that!I agree with you too that our Mom's should be spending the days with us 24/7 every day!
I've been going to the Milonga page and voting for my favorite derby hats,but its just so hard because I think every birdie should win,how can you pick just two each day?

  Heya, Kiddo!
Yeah, I guess that Mom just never figured she would be jobless at this stage in her life. She was not intending to retire early. She thought she would be carried out of the old job on a stretcher with a toe tag on. And now? After not having the stress and the awful hours of that job, she realized that this is not bad. As long as she watches her tendency to spend (bad habit!) she is doing okay. She hates to take money from her retirement account though--but you know, there just is no guarantee on life, or jobs. She also thinks that there is a reason for her not having any job offer.

Happy Earth Day!

Oh, it was only around 50 today--and that was the high temp! The sun was out but the wind was blowing pretty darn good. Mom had to run out to get her sinus pills, and then she ran over to Wally World for some stuff she needed. I was wondering why she did not take me, but when we went into her bedroom, I could feel the change in the temperature. I was very happy to be home, I can tell you.

Nothing new in the job front at all. A quiet day with Mom, which was great! Not much else going on. Those kind of days are the best!

V4U today. We had a really nice Easter and hope that you did, too. And as usual, the day went by way too fast. The lamb cake turned out nice and everyone liked how it had a little extra vanilla flavoring. Everyone brought something they cooked or baked and there was plenty of food. Our weather seems to be staying nice now, so I think the cold wintry days are finally behind us. Wishing you a nice day. From, Mayo

It's Popeye.
Yup, that's the movie. They even made a play out of it. Mom and dad may go see it. You're right. Albertsons chicken is great. Mom and dad still have 11 pieces left.
Not much news today. Yesterday mom and dad added celery, red onion and a bit of carrot to the egg salad mix and made sandwiches for lunch. I guess it was ok cuz dad didn't throw it out. Later on, mom and dad's friend Bob came over and they all went to see "Non-Stop" at the movies. Dad said it was good. Then they came back home and dad cooked the pizzas. They came out good. Dad said that it was true, you could freeze them and cook them later.
Today mom's going to work at the police station and dad's going to work around the house.
Hope your day is fun.

Lemon extract might work, lemon juice would sour the milk. Maybe use it instead of the nutmeg and vanilla? Mom says try it and see. It can't hurt to experiment.
Happy Earth Day! It's raining here, so the earth will be shooting up more flowers and green grass soon in celebration of her special day. Mom spotted some buds on the lilac this morning when she walked the dogs. Spring is here!
Today is a relaxing day for mom. She is will meet Lena and see her new apartment, then go to lunch with her. It's always fun to spend time with her grands. She will then do some shopping for us, fruits and stuff. Later she is meeting her sister to plan strategies for Thursday, the date for mom's surgery. They have to figure what time they're leaving and see exactly where the place is. It's an outpatient surgery center, not the hospital where mom thought it was. Most of the day is ours, though.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of love and scritchies. Hugs, Falco

Our mom always had good balance as a kid, not so sure how she is now though and use the entire body? Guess one does use the arms to help with that.

Cooler here, barely 70, but not convinced we'll get those rain showers today. We'll see.

So fun to see the Milonga page in the spotlight yesterday. Hopefully it got more birds to vote for their fave hat pics.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Morning Kiddo
Mom and dad are going to do some more painting at the g'parronts today . . . that means I'll be in lock down - me, with my wings still intact, can't go flying anywhere ! Mom says to watch it though, she can always make another appointment if my attitude gets too big ! I don't see what the problem is, if dad would just bring me a treat every time he goes to the kitchen I wouldn't have to chase him down !

Have a wonderful day my friends ! love Cookie

  Hi Kiddo
My mom wishes she had the energy that your mom has!!!
You are so lucky to have a sunbath almost everyday. I too get a daily treat now ... at bedtime I get a nut. I do look forward to it.
It was just another dreary day today. Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter … here comes the sun … lalalalala. I hope so!
The vet says that Blue (54066) is doing greyt but, has to wait 2 more weeks before the stitches come out. She still needs prayers.

  Heya, Kiddo!
Yeah...Mom and Kim were talking about how, years ago, they thought things would be so different in their lives. Neither of them ever imagined how things turned out for either of them. And it put Mom in this mood of thinking about what is important. Family (Grandpa and me), Friends, Happiness. Guess that is why she is not really stressing about the job thing. If she is supposed to work, okay. If not, she will find something she loves to do, and do it. Even if she takes money from her retirement account. There is no guarantee on the future being all sweet and rosy. Or even having one. It has been such a relief to be okay with her situation and not stress about it. Major change in thinking.

She did apply for a Helpdesk position for, of all things, the Milwaukee Brewers. She would love that job, for sure! Who knows if she will hear anything, but it would be very cool to be working for her favorite baseball team.

Today started out kinda nice--it was 70! The sun was out for a bit, but then went behind the clouds. Cold front came thru, and the temps dropped to the mid-60's. Started raining again, but no big storms or anything. And the sun came out around 5PM. Odd day, but very nice for me and Mom. She did laundry and looked for jobs. I kept her company on her shoulder. Perfect day as far as I am concerned!

Hope your Monday was magnificent!

Your buddy,
Kaji

  HI KIDDO
WE DID HAVE A VERY NICE EASTER YESTERDAY BUT MOM WAS SO TIRED FROM ALL THE DRIVING SHE HAD TO DO WE DIDNT HAVE MUCH TIME TO TALK. MOM DROVE AND PICKED UP OUR FROTHER AND G-SON AND DROVE THEM TO HER NIECE WHO LIVES 35 MILES AWAY THEN MOM HAD TO GET FROTHER AND G-SON DONW TO THE CITY BY 4:30PM TO MEET THE GIRLFRIEND WHO WAS THEN TAKING THEM OUT TO VISIT WITH HER PARRONTS AFTER THE BASEBALL GAME WHICH SHE WAS WORKING AT. TODAY MOM GROOMED THE DOGGIE AND GAVE HER A SUMMER HAIRCUT. THEN MOM WENT AND BOUGHT A NEW RHODODENDRON TO REPLACE ONE WHICH HAD DIED AND THEN MOM IS SLOWLY BRINGING OUT HER FOUNTAIN AND GARDEN DECORATIONS SO MOM IS ONCE AGAIN TIRED TONIGHT. HOPE YOU HAD A GREAT DAY. IT SURE WAS PRETTY HERE.

WHILE MOM WAS WORKING IN THE YARD TODAY SHE SAW A BRIGHT YELLOW LITTLE BIRD. IT WAS SO YELLOW MOM THOUGHT AT FIRST IT WAS A BUTTERFLY. MOM WILL HAVE TO LOOK UP WHAT KIND OF BIRD SHE SAW. SHE THINKS IT MIGHT BE A WARBLER. HUMMINGBIRDS ARE BACK SO WE HAVE TO GET OUR NECKER MADE AND THE HUMMINGBIRD FEEDERS READY.

  Hi Kiddo
Oh how my Mom misses going to zumba,she really loved going to the classes and hopes someday soon she can join again!That is really awesome that your sweet Mom's balance improved after the session with the trainer today!
If it doesn't get warm here soon,I'm coming back to have my sunbaths with you!
Mom is home with us all day today and she went outside to prune the hydrangea and the rose bush while dad was busy raking more leaves into big mountains by the garage driveway. Then when he was done with the raking,he sprayed the nasty stuff outside to kill the brambles and some bugs so they don't get into our house,this is ant season and they all start coming into our house this time of year.Mom had enough of them last spring and summer,no matter what you did you just couldn't get rid of them.She can't believe its late April right now and she hasn't seen one yet in her kitchen or bathroom! Knock on wood for that one!
Its a bright sunny day here today 59 degrees,but quite on the cold side with the breeze that's out there so again we don't get to go outside to get the fresh air and sunshine!
Now just what is it about your trying to share with your sweet Mom your special treats that she doesn't like?You would think that your Mom would embrace your appeals of love for her!But I think my Mom would do the same thing too,probably would call it yucky and gross!
I love going to go and vote for the ladies and gents derby hats,but its just so hard to pick only one from each group!They are all just so incredibly awesome and beautiful! And we were so eggcited to see the Milonga page getting BOTD today!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs!Love always,Dixie

  Hi Kiddo
You are so bad with dad, what did he ever do to you besides bringing you home?
The custard has 6 eggs, a quart of milk, a teaspoon of vanilla, a pinch of salt, an eighth of a cup of sugar (or more if you have a sweet tooth), and nutmeg to taste. You put it all in a double boiler, and stir until it looks kind of like scrambled eggs. Then you take it out by draining it in a cheesecloth or dish towel, wrap it in that and hang it for 3 or 4 hours to get most of the water content out. Then you put it in the fridge and slice it like you would cheese.
Well, yesterday was sure a success. The food was delicious, the company was a lot of fun, and mom even got a haircut in the middle of it all! Her colored deviled eggs were a huge success, so next year, she's going to make even more. They disappeared in a hurry. Some people weren't even here yet, so they never even saw them.
Today mom picked up the eye meds she has to do before and after surgery. She also dropped off wedding soup to Mary at the nail salon. At the center, she did birds and the outdoor ground hog cage. There are some interesting birds in the avian nursery, a yellow bellied sapsucker, for instance. They are always fun to see up close. There are about 6 screech owls in there, too. Anyway, she's home and ours for the rest of the day! Hope you are having the bright sunshine we are getting today. We're supposed to go up into the low 70s, mom hopes that's true! Here's a hug for you, Falco

  Hi Kiddo
It's Popeye.
Easter was really nice. We all got to stay up and celebrate the day with mom and dad and mom's parronts.
Our babies and little SweetPea were a big hit, too. Mom's parronts love to see the babies and SweetPea.
Albertson's had the fried chicken ready right when dad came in to pick it up so it was piping hot when he brought it home. The deviled egg stuff was a hit, too. Everybody just dipped their bagel chips into it like salsa. Dad didn't boil the eggs. Mom did. We had to hit the perch so dad covered us all up and then they all sat in the living room and watched "The Big Fish". Mom said it was a strange movie but it was funny. Then dad brought out chocolate covered strawberries for desert. There were gone in a flash.
Hope you all had a wonderful Easter, too.
Hugs,
Popeye.

...if you keep chasing your daddy around, you are going to get an Amazon reputation, which ain't all bad, nobody messes with you, LOL! Well it's a little overcast with mild rain off and on all day, but the farmers need more rain to keep the ground moisture levels up! Dad has to pick up fresh fruit and veggies for us, go to the bank, and ship four more boxes of toys for our bird friends! We are looking forward to the upcoming Derby, it should be fun again this year! I can't dally to long, we got lots to do and places to go! Have a great Monday, and give my love to all in your home, see ya tomorrow...

  Hi, Kiddo

  Hey Kiddo
We sure hope everybirdie had a great Easter - I did ! Mom and dad got home by 7:00 so I had plenty of time to play :)

Today is the day of doom . . . if you hear a whole lot of squawking around noon est, it'll be me ! ! I've been trying really hard to NOT chase down either parront who heads into the kitchen . . . but I know that's where the treats are and if they have something, so should I ! ! Don't you think ? And why does it bother the folks so much ? To the point where they're contemplating clipping my wings ? NOOOOOOOO !

Well, I hope at least YOU have a good day ! love Cookie

  Hi Kiddo
Oh oh, your dad almost got it! What was he thinking? (My dad used to have a ponytail too). I only go after dad when he comes too close to mom when I'm with her. If mom isn't home, I'm a lamb with dad.
We had a rainy Easter of 51 degrees. The bunny left me two wood toys. They sure were fun. At least I have memories of them … hehehe. Hope you had a wonderful Easter.

  Hello Mr. Kiddo
Mom has been laid up with her knee again & has tried to stay where she could elevate it & use the ice/heating pad with 20 minute intervals of each. Man, does she ever HATE that ice!! The ice is working somewhat but it just makes it hurt more to Mom's senses.

About Saturday night...I'm sorry I missed it. Mom has thought she'd be ready for sitting back in her computer chair again but it isn't very conducive to the knee having to be pampered. She has an iPad that she uses as she watches the time tick away & it gets FB like the desk top computer would but try as she might getting on the BC is hard & even harder now for reasons she doesn't understand. Is it her iPad or is it the BC?? Mom doesn't know. Some of her neighbors have the same problems but with other sites not the BC. They aren't on BC but they knew exactly what Mom was talking about when she told them what was going on with her iPad.

Mom went with me outside today because it stopped raining & it was warmed up quite a bit! They say tonight that the cold is coming back in, being blowed from the NE by the same big storm that just cruised through here from the SW!! It had dumped so much rain that the trees are so heavy with water & the ground is so saturated it's extremely soft & huge trees are just pulling out of the ground on top of houses & cars!! One poor fella was doing a little gardening in his backyard & a tree fell on him & killed him!! Who would've thought that hazard pay should be offered for going out in one's backyard!! It is a terrible thing for that family.

I had Mom have her leg propped up in an extra lawn chair. With her wearing her big straw hat & long sleeve shirt that filters UVA/UVB sunlight, she sat near my cage & would lean over & wipe my cage down. She removed the tray from beneath my play gym so she could clean there & once the tray was gone, I climbed myself over there & began dismantling my piñata & pitching out the seeds, corn, and pellets pinging through my cage then onto the deck! It made a nice sounding musical note.

Hope you've had a wonderful Easter. Hugs to all, SamIAm
