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 4 Sweetie #269943 for BOTM!

I am a Senegal Parrot from Simi Valley, CA.

Dad: Superbrat, Fuzzy Butt, Mr. Snooty Beak & Falcon.
Mom: Cupcake, T-Rex & Sugar Butt
At bedtime: Bonzo


13 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..

  Whoa Kiddo !
Those are some muscles you're building ! Well, my awesome talons are gone ! Be proud though - I gave the groomer a really hard time trying to escape the whole ordeal - she was so impressed by my efforts, she gave me a nutriberrie ! ! Then when we got home I pouted and that got me cuddles, skritches and another nutriberrie ! ! !

It's finally supposed to warm up today some. Mom and dad are heading out to the flea market this morning - mom loves to poke around and dad loves junk food ! Hope you have a good day :) love to all - Cookie

HI MY SWEET KIDDO. SO YOU ARE ON THE COLD SIDE TOO. TODAY WASNT BAD FOR HUMANS TO BE OUT WITHOUT A JACKET BUT MOM SAID THEIR WAS JUST A SLIGHT BREEZE THAT WOULD CAUSE A CHILL TO US. SHE IS HOPING THAT TOMORROW WILL BE WARMER AND WE CAN GO OUTSIDE FOR A BIT TOMORROW.

RAIN IS PREDICTED STARTING SUNDAY AND GOING THRU TILL SATURDAY NEXT WEEK. MONDAY WILL BE THE WORST DAY FOR RAIN SO DON'T KNOW IF WE WILL BE GRILLING OUT. MAYBE THE RAIN WILL HOLD OFF TILL EVENING. SURE HOPE SO.

MOM WENT TO THE GYM TODAY AND GOT ON THE TREADMILL BUT WAS ONLY ABLE TO DO 22 MINS AS HER LEGS WERE SORE FROM YESTERDAYS TREADMILL WORKOUT.

AS FOR TEH TRAINERS, ALL ARE VERY YOUNG AND MOM DOESN'T THINK ANY OF THEM COULD DEAL WITH SOMEONE WITH BACK AND LEG ISSUES. MOM'S TRAINER THAT LEFT SAID THAT THE OTHERS REALLY DIDN'T HAVE THE EXPERIENCE TO WORK WITH SOMEONE WITH MOM'S ISSUES. THE STUFF THE TRAINER DOES COME UP WITH MOM CAN ACTUALLY DO ON HER OWN AND USUALLY DOES. THE OTHER TRAINER MOM LIKED A LOT DID ALL KINDS OF OTHER EXERCISES TO WORK ON BALANCE AND SUCH FOR MOM. EACH WEEK WAS DIFFERENT. THERE AREN'T MANY TRAINERS THERE, 3 YOUNG GUYS AND ONE YOUNG GIRL AND THE HEAD GUY.

HEY KIDDO, DO YOU REALIZE THAT KAJI WILL BE 25 YRS OLD TOMORROW? ITS HIS HATCHDAY AND I KNOW LIZZIE WILL BE MAKING A GREAT CAKE FOR HIM. I THINK WE SHOULD GO TO THE DRAGON CAVE AND HELP CELEBRATE HIS HATCHDAY.

  Hi Kiddo
Just wondering if you go to the gym while your mom is at Zumba?
I'm so with you on the heater thing. Moms think they are fooling us ... HA!
Dad's are good to have around. Mine can power wash my condo for me ... he does a good job I must admit.
We are still in the 40's to 50's with cold windy days.
Looks like it will slowly warm up on Saturday to 60. But, we'll have rain from Sunday thru Thursday with t-storms on Monday. I hope tonight is the last frost night. I need some patio time soon!

  Heya, Kiddo!
Oh, wow, look at you with those weights! Love the new picture!

Yeah, Mom is gonna have the finance guy figure things with insurance. With social security, she would not have to have that much coming out of her account. It is just a relief to be able to support herself if she can't find any job. She was supposed to have a phone interview with this bank, but she has heard nothing more about when. Guess with the holiday, people are gone, so maybe next week.

It was lovely here today but we had that lake effect wind so we only got to 60, and it was a chilly one. Mom did her bedroom today--moved all the furniture, vacuumed and dusted. She did the mattress spin thing and got the summer quilt out. I hollered like crazy cuz she was using that sucking machine. She still has to do the patio door windows in there, and the ones in the kitchen and dining room and the patio door in the living room, but that will come when rain is not in the forecast so much.

Enjoy the time with Mom! I sure am! And tomorrow is my 25th Birdthday with Mom. She says it is our Silver Anniversary, too! I sure am glad she came in the store that day so I could chose her for my Mom!

  Hi Kiddo
Happy, healthy Friday to everybirdie. It's looking to be a great long-weekend for all my BC friends in the US. I am very delighted by the responses you are sharing with us. I hope everybirdie takes the time to read them too. There is a lot to consider when it comes to sharing your home with a Companion Parrot. When my Momma Deb started with birds, there was so little written about them it was a hit or miss situation when it came to care, housing and health. Today, with the internet at our finger tips, and countless books on various species, self-educating is a joyous and necessary component to be availed by all. We never know it all, and learning is a life time effort. Everyday with a Companion Parrot offers opportunities to observe or learn something new and valuable.
Many of us wish to adopt a new fid into our homes, hearts and flocks but there are so many considerations beyond species to work through. I must say this topic was brought to me by our dear friend Eva Kline of the famed K K Koral. It is something we need to look at when thinking of the addition of a brand new flock member in an established flock. That is the dreaded "quarantine" .
It would be the very rare home that can provide us with "IDEAL" conditions to quarantine an incoming bird. So with this knowledge what can we do? and what is not ok to do? To correctly quarantine a new Parrot you need a room, that is supplied with it's own source of air, preferably filtered intake and exhaust. Many Avian diseases are air-borne. Simply separating a new Parrot from the flock within the same household does not prevent contamination and disease spread through the air, air vents and whenever the door is opened to care for the new comer. The false belief that changing your clothing, shoes etc after caring for the new comer WILL NOT prevent the spread of disease.
By definition all quarantine of Avians is to be done in a building separate from ALL other birds in a flock. It must have it's own air filtration system to prevent spread of airborne disease particles and be tended by someone who does not come into contact with other Parrots during the quarantine period. Separation of the flock and new comer by floors within the same home is not considered fully quarantined. Although changing clothes, shoes and showering before entering and after being in contact with the new fid will work greatly to help stop cross infection.
The recommended method of quarantine suggests that all incoming new flock members have TWO sets of blood testing done at intervals advised by your Veterinarian to screen for Avian diseases. However, unless the Parrot is shedding a virus, a false negative can occur.
NOW FOR TODAY'S QUESTION: what other suggestion do you have for bringing home that new flock member?

  Hello Kiddo~
I hope you had a great day too! It got cloudy and cooler here today so I don't think anyone is missing the pool. They painted it today and then put the lights and the filter covers back on. It is now ready for water when it dries.
Mom has to drive Jennifer down to her dads house tomorrow. The doctors have been checking him ever since he has the heart attack and found he has a leaky heart valve. He is going to have to have surgery to fix it and Jennifer is worried. Mom thinks it will be okay since they do so many of those kinds of surgeries. They haven't scheduled it yet but we keep him in our prayers everyday.
Mom went over to Costco today and it was very crowded. They had all the registers open so it really didn't take long to get out of there. She brought back some lovely blueberry muffins and Mandy, Merlin and I shared one! Yes, the cat likes blueberry muffins!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Oh yea mom tells me stories like that too and we fids are smart and know they are trying to pull one over on us but we never let on and let them think they did LOL
The good thing is mom got to meet up with her sister finally today. Yep this is the first time they were able to get together since moms sister got back about 2 weeks ago for the summer from Arizona. Looks like this might be the last summer they will be here for the whole summer so that is the sad part if they don’t get to see each other every summer like they have the last 15 years. The sad part was mom was gone for the day and dad was in and out but you know how dads are…sure not like moms so I was very happy when mom got back home. Now we are trying to get the blogs done. “Goodbyes are not forever, goodbyes are not the end, They simply mean I’ll miss you until we meet again.“ Goodbye from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

We don't have any of those awesome burger places here at all,I don't even think they're anywhere near us even over the Bridge.Maybe in the Boston area or beyond,we wish they were,we always see adds for Denny's which we had one eons ago back in the 70's and it left us,we have alot of bar and grill places like UNO's,the 99Club,Bobby Byrnes,and of course Burger King,McDonalds,which they have renovated in each town,Hyannis and Falmouth,and Wendy's.We have Mexican restaurants and a new one just opened up not to long ago in Hyannis also and lots of seafood places.Oh does my Mom love spicy,skin sis took them out to Subway today and Mom had the Chipotle chicken sub with all the hot she could get!
We had that same problem with one of our rooms here,the heaters in the sunroom and the pantry were on the same circuit and if you put one room on the other would go on also,several years back we had them both fixed so that they are now on separate circuits!Oh Man,we just lost our power right in the middle of Mom typing your blog!The computer,tv and everything just shut down and was it pitch dark in here,now Mom's gotta reset all the clocks yet again,we lost our power earlier in the week!This is so annoying!Its a good thing I didn't lose everything I had already typed out to you!
This morning was a dark gloomy wet morning to start and then the sun came out nicely,our highs for the day were 66 the lows of 44,right now its 64 and quite windy!Mom got all the trash collected and in her car and then put Dixie's harness on and got him in the car seat and they took off to Nana's.When they got there Mom got Dixie settled in his cage in the sun room and then she got all of Nana's things for the dump in her car along with hers and they went to the dump and from there Mom went to the bank,then they went to pick up skin sis in Falmouth at her apartment,then Mom drove back to Mashpee to CVS so Nana could get some things she needed and then they went to Subway to have lunch and from there they went to get Nana's inspection sticker for her car then they went to the post Office for skin sis and as usual couldn't find a place to park so Mom had to park in a handicap spot and ran in and was out in a second then they went back to Nana's house and had some tea and strawberry shortcake.By that time it was getting late and Mom had to take skin sis back home and get gas in her car.So everyone got into Mom's car and she pumped gas for $2.67 a gallon but she got her gas rewards points and got the gas for $2.57 a gallon.She filled her tank for $20.00. When Mom and Nana got back from dropping skin sis off at her apartment she collected Dixie and left to go home,the traffic was so bad and it was bumper to bumper like it was the other day and no one was going anywhere fast.I think the whole world is here for this weekend!It took Mom 45 minutes to get home as the traffic was still so bad.When Mom got home she cleaned our cages and fed us our snacks as Dad had just got home himself.Then sh

Sounds like you won some and lost some, but you did get mom for that extra hour, so that has to count as a double win, right?
Mom has a booboo on her leg that she didn't even know happened. Yesterday when she left the museum, the car door slammed into her shin (because she's clumsy sometimes) and it hurt, but mom didn't think anything of it. Last night when she was getting ready for bed, she saw that she had bled on her khaki pants! There was a huge wound on her leg as well. It doesn't hurt, but it will take awhile to heal.
Today mom worked in the avian nursery, and she had the 20 minute timer as well. Every 20 minutes she had to feed the smallest babies in the incubator, and of course, clean their nests and paper underneath, too, because what's going in one end seems to push out what's at the other end. She managed, between 20 and 45 minute feedings, to clean only 6 other cages. The avian nursery is pretty full right now, with robins, sparrows, starlings, mourning doves, pigeons, a cedar waxwing, a woodpecker, a little screech owl, crows, etc. The 6b ducklings in one of the cages got a fake mom today. Mom found the decoys they use for moms, and popped one in there on the heating pad. The babies will gather round it for comfort once it heats up a little.
After the center, she went shopping for fruits and veggies for us. Now she's home, and after doing our blogs, will plant the strawberry, gooseberry, and peppers that our neighbor left for us. We are under a frost advisory for tonight, so mom will have to look for some sheets for the tender stuff she is planting today. Everything else should be okay.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

If mom can stay alert after taking this dictation, she'll email your mom the baked oatmeal recipe.
Did you get your sunbath? It is sunny and will get the lower 60s here today, but tonight the plant pots have to come back in again. Mom is hoping she can get help to plant the dahlias tomorrow since Sun and Mon will be rainy.
I've been making LOTS of spitwads for mom to clean up, not lace, spitwads. I'm mad at her.

It's Popeye.
Just a short note today.
Mom and dad went to the police awards dinner last night. The food was great and it was great to see all the officers and staff be rewarded for their efforts.
Today mom and dad will be making Deviled eggs for Saturday's BBQ at mom's brother's house. Did you know that Costco sells cooked and pealed eggs? What a time saver.
Today there will be a slight chance of rain, with a high of 68 and a low of 56.

Thanks for liking the pic of the grand. Mom'll be babysitting next week so she'l be trying to get a new pic.

We aren't really planting anything here either. Just gotta keep what we already have going. Hope we get another el nino as that would be the best way to get outta the drought.

Remains cool for us too. Was mostly overcast yesterday. Places north of us got some rain. Think there was a tiny bit of hazy sunshine late afternoon.

Sounds like you lucked out with the zumba sub not being one your mom wants to be in a class with, heehee.

It's an especially sweet one since mom has three days off ! Hooray for Monday ! Behind every bright sunny day is a little dark rain cloud though - that little dark rain cloud is called grooming :( Yeppers, my awesome claws will be trimmed this afternoon . . . sigh

Oh and the folks will be heading out to the flea market early tomorrow - but the rest of the weekend should be good - cookout with the g'parronts on Sunday (corn perhaps ?) and parade on Monday . . .

Then the countdown to mom's vacation begins !

something must be mentally wrong with Gov of California Jerry Brown. we read the California under ground water tables are now drying up and he is allowing the fracking
companies to inject the toxic waste water right into them. many California politicians are now trying to stop this.

well its 44 degrees right now and feels more like snow weather. no wonder they tell you not to plant until after memorial day.

mom has to take apart the outside grill and clean out the pipes because they say if you leave them outside the pipes get clogged with spider webs and can cause an explosion

I hope you had a great day. Mine was pretty good. Mom was busy with chores and spent some time looking for recipes for veggies. She found some really great ones so it as time well spent.
The pool is still empty. The lights from the bottom are sitting along side it. They plastered it so I think now they have to smooth it out again and then paint it blue again. It was warm here today so I think everyone is anxious for that pool to be open!

MY POOR SUNLESS HUSBIRD. OH I AM SORRY THAT ITS STILL TOO COLD FOR YOU TO GET OUT AND GET THAT WARM SUN ON YOUR BEAUTIFUL FEATHERS. WE ARE STILL ON THE COOLER SIDE HERE TOO. IT DIDNOT GET AS WARM AS THEY SAID IT WOULD. IT JUST GOT MAYBE TO 65 AND THERE WAS A BREEZE THAT MADE IT COOLER AND YOU NEEDED A JACKET WHEN OUTSIDE. THE SUN DID COME OUT ABOUT 11AM BUT DIDN'T HELP MUCH. NOW THEY ARE SAYING RAIN IS EXPECTED THIS WEEKEND AND ALL OF NEXT WEEK. SO DON'T KNOW IF WILL GET A CHANCE TO GRILL BURGERS OUTSIDE.

BECKY SOUNDS LIKE A GREAT TRAINER AND NOT LETTING YOUR MOM OFF SINCE SHE DIDN'T GO TO ZUMBA. MOM WAS WITH HER TRAINER BUT DOESN'T EVER FEEL LIKE SHE GOT A GOOD WORKOUT. SHE DID 32 MINS ON THE TREADMILL BEFORE HER WORKOUT AND AFTERWARDS SHE WENT TO WORK OUT ON A FEW MORE MACHINES.

  Heya, Kiddo!
Kalua pork is similar to pulled pork--in Hawai'i they would put the pig in an imu, or underground pit, filled with taro leaves, and it would steam cook/roast. It is so yummy--so if you ever had pulled pork, this is 10 times better! Mmmm. Oh yeah, Mom is gonna go back there again (and again).

It is good that your Dad did not retire before he got cancer, or your Mom had the GI problems. Insurance would be impossible to get before Obamacare otherwise. Mom still has to work on that part.

It was chilly cold today too, here, but it warmed up to 66 and sunny. Mom had to make a trip to the dentist this morning as her crown fell off last night. Luckily the dentist had her come in early this morning and he put 3 posts in the tooth and cemented the crown back on. Tooth will need to be pulled though, and another implant put in. Mom says that she is going to check out a place close to home for that--they are $3000 cheaper than her current dentist is. Same thing as what she has. Right now that is a huge difference!

She went to see the financial advisor. And he thought that she just might be able to retire! He works at the local Mutual Fund Store office, and is on the radio here on Saturday mornings. She absolutely loved their approach and is hoping that she will get some good news when she goes back to see him next Friday. He told her she did pretty good for herself. A relief. He is gonna figure out with and without taking Social Security early. Whew. Will keep you posted on what he recommends. He told her with what she has saved now, she should be able to live on it for a very long time.

  Hi Kiddo
OOOOHHH,how awesome is that to watch them making the fries fresh like that before your eyes!Now you are really making me want to have one,I just love fries and since I got gout Mom denies me having any.Yummmmmmm!
It looks like we are in a drought like situation here as everything is dying here and our lawns are turning brown and our flowers are dying before they have a chance to live for awhile!Its so sad,everything is so dusty and dry.The rain we got the other day wasn't enough to even make puddles!Mom just loves basil and she has a hard time trying to grow it.She's hoping to be able to get her garden going soon but so far its still so cold here,we get one nice warm day and then the next is back to freezing,Mom's still using our heat boxes to keep the chill outta the house and we have one pointed in our bird room to keep us warm at night.
Oh yeah,yuck about those lovey dovey things about your daddy there!But its good he took the rest of that spinach and rice to work with him for his lunch!Now you don't have to deal with it!LOL!
Mom used to have to get a ticket thing when she signed into the gym every time and give it to Toni before the class or after it.It must be something like what your Mom has to do with the ticket thing!There's nothing like a bad sub zumba teacher!
This morning is a bright sunny day but cold,our highs for the day will be 62,the lows being 49 and its 61 right now. Mom tried opening the windows but it was cold air that came in so she closed them and she's running our two heat boxes just to keep the chill out of the house.Mom is home with us today and she got us all up,cleaned our cages and fed us our warm bean mix.Then she's going to work on getting some of the chores done,collect the trash and recyclables for the dump tomorrow and maybe if she is in the mood will start cleaning out the tv room closet.What a mess that will be as there's so much stuff in there.The sun is starting to fade out now and its not getting any warmer so I don't think that we'll be going outside any time soon.Other than Mom working around the house its going to be another boring day here which is fine with us,at least Mom will be home with us all day!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

That is good your mom and you had lots of time together today. Oh yea sure dont blame your mom for not staying for Zumba with the bad teacher there. That sure wouldnt be fun for your mom and got her home earlier to you too.
Well its still cold here so I didn’t get out to enjoy a sunbath. It was very cloudy too and even had rain this morning and later towards evening too. Mom hung just the sheets outside and did get them dry but everything else went in the dryer. I got up on the windowsill and yelled at the wild birds a bit today but they are so busy getting food they didn’t pay any attention anyway. “Goodbyes are not forever, goodbyes are not the end, They simply mean I’ll miss you until we meet again.“ Goodbye from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Kiddo
I hope you got your wish yesterday and had lots of mom time. I love your People cover, were you voted sexiest bird alive?
It's really cold again today, high of 56, but we don't think it's anywhere near there yet. Mom took lots of flower pics, so will post them on all 3 pages. There are 19 or so new pics. It's a good thing she took the azalea pics yesterday, because it rained overnight and with the cool weather and rain, many of the flowers have dropped off the bushes already.
Today mom had 2 tours, both from the same school district, and both in Dinosaurs. The kids were 4th graders, which is the grade mom likes best. So her time at the museum was lots of fun this morning. Later we will get our cages cleaned, and mom will go to dinner with Aunt Renee. Aunt Renee is leaving next week to go to Texas and celebrate her namesake's 90th birthday. Mom will have a card ready for her to take to Aunt Lorene when she goes.
Not much new, enjoy the flowers! Hope you are having a good day with sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hi Kiddo
Hello everybirdie, Sweetie here this cool, but sunny Thursday. I apologize for not getting this blog out to you yesterday but we care having serious problems with BC right now.
It is definitely a good sign that so many have made long-term arrangements for us fids. It is something humans don't like to think about, death and being away from us, but since so many of us are very long-lived it is vital we all are provided for. A recent incident set this fact out from all othrs when one of our own BC friends was rushed to the hospital unconscious. There was talk prior to this eventful day about having contact numbers but the other person delayed to provide them. When the situation happened there was no one to call to care for the two fids left int he apartment alone. This could have been all avoided with proper per-planning.
At the very least everyone should take the time to list all their fids in a notebook. Including their ages, sexes, and every important fact about each one including foods, care facts and anything else that would matter should we be unable to provide for them. This notebook should be placed in a safe location; easily found by someone in a stressful situation. Tell family, friends etc where to find the book, or if you have a "care-provider" designated make certain they are aware of it and where to find the notes. Have contact numbers included for any family, friends etc and your Veterinarian.
In this situation mentioned we were able to work from Canada in behalf of our American friend. The birds were cared for by a close friend. The whole situation could have been smoother, and less stressful on our part with the necessary information in advance. Stop to imagine if things were different and no one was notified to care for the bird for the week their owner was hospitalized. Not a pretty thought. Sometimes we figure that family knows how to care for our fids. But in an emergency do they really know everything they should? In the event of our death, who will take care of the fids? Do these individuals know this in advance? Many times Companion Parrots are left to people who do not really want them and they end up sold, given away or handed over to a rescue to "deal with". As a Parrot lover and Parront we are responsible for their welfare even in our absence.
Having a living will, or a notarized paper telling all the details relevant to our flock will save alot of guess work later on for those responsible for our estates. We will have the peace-of-mind knowing we have placed our baby's into caring, informed hands and provided for their future without us. No one likes to dwell on death, but once we take care of this most important part of "ownership" of a Companion Parrot(s) we will be able to continue to enjoy every day we have here on Earth with them. Up dates to the notebook are important. Noting any behavior changes, issues or medical problems as they occur is also helpful for their future care-giver.

  Hi Kiddo
It's Popeye.
We hardly saw mom and dad at all yesterday. Mom had an early appointment to get her feathers done at the beauty saloon. Dad dropped her off at 9am and then he went shopping for pellets for us. He picked up mom around 11am and continued their pellet search until around 12:30pm when they went to the movies and saw The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. It was a cute movie. Mom and dad like most anything with Judy Dench in it.
They finally got home, with some pellet samples, at 4:30pm. We thought they'd stay home but NOOOOO! They went to a special Olympics fundraising dinner at Red Robin. Finally, they came home around 7:30pm and checked on all of us. That's when dad discovered that Rio figured out how to push the top of the nest box open and get out. Dad caught him and put him back in his and Sky's cage. Rio was not a happy camper. Anyway, dad tucked us all in and said goodnight to all of us, covered us up and he and mom watched TV. Well, mom watched TV. Dad fell asleep.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 68 and a low of 55. Someone put the rain back in the forecast but dad says it won't rain. We'll see. Tonight mom and dad are going to a police awards dinner so they won't be home for dinner AGAIN!
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye.

Love to all in your happy Thursday home, see ya tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny & my loving flock---WE CARE

  Hi, Kiddo
Yeah, certain veggies should never be in cans. Have seen some strange things on the cooking competition shows with weird ingredients from cans. Who knew they eggisted? Cover your ears, we had some broccoli and Pearl immediately went over to sample it. So yummy.

Continues cool here too though lots of sunshine and nicely breezy to keep the air fresh. No more rain for us either.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

Hello from King Flit-Flit!

Dad and Uncle Geno watched two movies in a row the other night:
The first film, "SAFETY LAST" (1923) with Harold LLoyd -they couldn't stop laughing.
--
The second film, "THE NORMAL HEART" (about AIDS) -they couldn't stop crying.
Humans are silly creatures.

Cool but sunny today. Dad is going to the first Cookout of the Season with friends.
Hope he brings back something yummy for me.

Have a great day with mom :) love Cookie

  Hi Kiddo
It's always a lot warmer on our patio. But, not this week ... no patio time for me.
So, did your mom get to Zumba? At least you shared a good lunch together.
I'm so tired of the BC problems ... it will be two weeks for me on Saturday!
Looks like another night with a freeze warning until 9am. It should be in the mid 50's with some sun tomorrow. Maybe I'll get to sit in the window to get some sun. I got a new toy today ... it was a good chew.
Hugs
Chyna

Come visit me, Derby Farms, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.
