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 Falco,
mom will post some picture on my page tomorrow so you can see what the parronts have been doing out there.

Guess your mom doesn't want to smell icky when she is with you...that is really nice of her don't you think?
Awww, how sweet of your mom to let you have all the lima beans for yourself.

I sure hope that your mom wins the Grievance, she should.

That is great news if your mom doesn't have to go through another ablation...

Well, the robin's nest blew down again but she was back again today and that one blew away also this afternoon. Mom doesn't understand why she keeps trying over and over again. There are lots of nice trees around or even a hanging planter to use. Mom has looked up robin's nests but doesn't know where to get one around here, then she doesn't know where to put it. Dad did look in Walmart but they just had regular bird nests.

Dad was outside and finished his painting on the house around the sunroom. It looks really great. Mom has a few plants to buy...a couple for the two hanging planters, about three mini roses, and a couple more for some other planters in the back and three plants for the front as three of them didn't make it...

Mom talked to Uncle Chuck this afternoon...it sure was nice of him to call, he wanted to make sure that Christy, Ziggy, and LaLo got into the hat contest. Scoober screamed a little while while mom was talking...hehe. I think he was trying to get Jenny's attention...lol

  Heya, Kiddo!
Oooh, this is a late note, too. Mom got home after 8 PM, and of course had to make sure I had something to eat. She had a nice time at Kim's. They had snacks and watched Frozen, which was pretty good. The animation was fantastic! But Kim keeps her place pretty cold, so by the time Frozen was over, Mom was, well, frozen. They were gonna eat dinner then, but Mom bowed out. She couldn't eat the main course, so she was glad that she was feeling so cold. I was so happy she came home, too. Missed her lots.

Will check out the Milonga page and the hats. Can hardly wait, and can you believe that this is like the first Milonga we missed? Sheesh.

Hope you had a super time.

Mom's hand is doing well. She can do a bit of typing. You are right, the Kindle has helped a lot. She has spent several hours of her free time using an 'app' to organize her books on the 7" Fire HD. She finally got all the 'old' books in order and is now working on the 'new' ones. She is amazed at how many are on the device. She has too many in her 'cloud' reader. It is easier now that she can use both hands. Her primary is still bandaged and can only be 'lightly' used, but she can type. a bit.
Fortunately skinsis has taken over cooking.

  Hi Kiddo
As long as the company is gone (they will be by 8), we'll be there.
Mom made our Easter bread yesterday, which is pretty much an all day affair. There are so many eggs in it, it takes forever to rise. She also did the hard custard, so it's in the fridge. She decided to do deviled eggs and dye the egg whites this year, so they are in the fridge as well. This way, people will eat them and she won't end up with a dozen hard boiled eggs. Last night she found a fish fry at a local church, so that's where she got dinner. It wasn't as good as the place she usually goes, though.
Today mom worked the Easter Egg Hunt at the museum. Guess where they put her? Yep, Bird Hall with a trainee. It was fun, the kids were so excited and the touchables were a hit, too. Everyone who stopped got a plastic egg with an owl shaped eraser inside.
Now mom is making the wedding soup for tomorrow. All in all it's going to be a good dinner, we think. We will get a sample of pasta and veggies, and maybe some salad out of it. I won't eat any, but the others will enjoy the treats. Hope you are having a good day, warm, sunny, and filled with love. Happy Easter! Hugs, Falco

It's Popeye.
Good news. Mom's money has been returned. Mom and dad spent about two hours at the bank. Mom had to open a new account. and get a new check card. Today, when dad checked the accounts, the money was back. The bank said that they get eight to ten PayPal complaints a day. They don't even bother to call PayPal, they just return the money.
The new part for the oven came yesterday, too. So today dad will fix the oven.
Hope your day was good.

  Hi, Kiddo
Well, there are two sizes of avicakes, one for bigger parrots so it can't be disliked due to the size. Think some birds (don't recall if 'tiels or what) have told us they like it, but no matter, each to their own.

Hmmmm, if that big guy was a neighbor wouldn't you have seen him before? At least you got your 30 minutes of sun and that is more than enough.

So, today we view the hat pics and then voting on Sun? If we recall it is one vote per flock and can vote for one guy pic and one girl pic, right? We will try to at least fly over to the sorta Milonga for a lil while, but probably won't get to stay.

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

calls Cookie as her delivers some babka for Easter. A quiet day today - maybe some laundry will get done since tomorrow the parronts will go to g'mas and g'pas for Easter dinner. Mom used to cook and have everyone over but since her mom passed on an Easter Sunday (1989) she doesn't any more - too sad.

Then Monday ? Day of Doom - um groom - mom actually made an appointment for me yesterday. Even worse ? She says if my attitude doesn't change she'll have my wings done too ! ! ! NOOOOOOO

OH MOM WAS JUST GLAD THAT NO DAMAGE WAS DONE TO HER SUV. IT MAY BE 12 YRS OLD BUT MOM TAKES THE BEST CARE OF IT. THE SMALL SCRATCH ON THE BOTTM OF THE BUMPER IS NOTHING, ONLY MOM KNOWS ITS THERE. MOM WILL ALWAYS GET THAT BIG STEEL GRILL PUT ON THE FRONT OF HER SUV. IT PROTECTS THE FRONT END. THAT OLD GUY REALLY DIDN'T CARE, HE ONLY WANTED THAT STUPID HANDICAP SPOT. MOM JUST TOLD G-MA THAT THEY WILL HAVE TO PARK OUT AWAYS AND SHE WILL JUST HAVE TO WALK TO THE STORE. THERE ARE NEVER ENOUGH HANDICAP SPOTS IN ANY PARKING LOT.

MOM WAS SO STRESSED OUT YETERDAY THAT SHE HAD TROUBLE SLEEPING LAST NIGHT. IT WAS NOT A GOOD DAY FOR MOM.

CHYNA MENTIONED THE MILONGA AND HAT VIEWING SO MOM MADE A NOTE AND TAPED IT TO THE COMPUTER. SO WE WILL BE THERE TO SEE ALL THE WONDERFUL HATS.

HOW RUDE OF THAT BIG NEIGHBOR TO TAKE UP YOUR MOM/SUNBATHING TIME. HOPE HE DOESN'T DO THAT AGAIN. DID HE BLOCK YOUR SUN CAUSE HE WAS SO BIG?

ITS STILL TOO COLD AND WINDY TO GO OUTSIDE HERE. EASTER SUNDAY IS SUPPOSED TO BE 70 DEGREES.

OH GREAT NEWS KIDDO, THE FURCOUSIN WENT HOME THIS EVENING. HER MOM HAD CALLED SAYING THEY WERE AN HOUR AWAY AND WAS COMING TO GET HER. SHE MISSED HER SO MUCH AND COULD NOT WAIT TILL SATURDAY. I AM GLAD AS NOW I GET TO EAT BREAKFAST WITH MOM IN OUR CHAIR AND BE OUT OF MY CAGE. MOM ALSO DIDN'T HAVE TO GO OUT AT 10PM FOR THE LAST POTTY BREAK OF THE NIGHT. I AM VERY HAPPY.

No, we don't get a snow trophy. I hope someone else has this honor for many many many years. I don't want it ever again.
We don't have a Vons or safeway up here ... just Glenns.
I sure hope you have a better sunbath tomorrow.
This has been a busy week for my parronts. I hope we can get everything done for Easter on Saturday.
The new cushions for the patio furniture came today. Too bad the patio is snow covered!
Don’t forget the Milonga on Saturday night ~ the viewing of the hats for the derby contest.

I just heard the sad news that Lupe (226033) has gone over the rainbow bridge. This has been a very bad “season” for too many birds. Fly free Lupe.

My Mom went out today for some last minute things at the grocery store and to get my dad some paint roller covers so he can paint the deck whenever the weather decides to cooperate,then she got her sister a birthday card,(her birthday was last month on the 9th)to go with the gift card that Mom finally settled on getting her the other day!
It was cold here in the low 40's and the breeze made it even colder.We are hoping to get to 50 for Easter Sunday but that's still to be seen!How wonderful you got to have a sunbath again today but that neighbor sure yakked your time away with your sweet Momma!I too would be afraid of such a big guy like that too!I sure don't blame you for wanting to go back inside after that encounter!That would ruin my appetite for a nutriberry also!
I will definitely be there tomorrow for the milonga page,I will be a bit late as Mom and Dad are going to Easter Vigil and it doesn't start til 7pm and its going to be a real long Mass,they shut all the lights off and have a BBQ lit up in the back of the church out by the door with the fire going big time high!I will try to have Mom drop us off early before they leave,they have to leave by 5:30 so they can get a place to park and a place to sit as this is one of those times where the once a year people show up and take all the regulars seats and parking places!You can count on me being there silently till they get back then I'll have a voice,I wouldn't miss it for the world!The Milongas you have are always so much fun and I don't want to miss a one as we have no idea if we will ever have another one once BC shuts us down!

  Heya, Kiddo!
Mom has those cabs set out right now on a lovely centerpiece plate on the dining room table. She loves the stones! She is not as good as your Dad on doing the wire wrapping, and she is working on getting better at that. She is all thumbs these days. She will give those a try now that the light is better here--the sun comes in over her table, so she can see what she is doing better in the nicer weather. She is not sure she is good enough to sell any of the earrings. She knows they are pretty but not sure if anyone would buy them.

I am probably gonna be missing at the Milonga tomorrow--Kim, Mom's friend, is having some folks over for grub, as she calls it. So Mom is going there tomorrow afternoon. If she gets back early, I will be able to blog. But if not, you know Lizzie and I are there in silence.

They say it is supposed to be near 70 on Sunday. But rainy. It was nice and toasty here today with the sun coming in and I took a huge bath. Gosh, nothing like a bath with the sun coming in on the playgym!

That's funny, none of us like those avicakes either! Mom did the same thing, tossed them out for the birds and squirrels.
Well, it's Good Friday, so mom made the Easter bread dough this morning. She usually does it today because she doesn't have museum or wildlife center responsibilities.
Bree came yesterday and I gave her and mom a run for their money! I flew all over the place until Bree finally caught me in mom's lightweight jacket, because the towel wasn't big enough. She left me my wings, though, because Daisy still hasn't learned manners with us birds, and mom wants all of us to have an escape, just in case.
Willie was the drama king, as usual, crying before Bree even got near him with the clippers. He's so funny! Peppino was okay, except he bit mom pretty hard because she let his head out of the towel. She'll learn in time. We all got my favorite treat, movie popcorn nutriberries, when Bree was done. She always says Millie and Lily are the best behaved, and they never want a treat for it.
Today, as well as the Easter bread, mom will boil eggs for deviled eggs, and make the hard custard that the family calls Easter Cheese. Everyone looks forward to it each year. Hope you are enjoying some sunshine today. It's a bit overcast here, but pretty nice, and it's supposed to hit the 70s on Sunday! I'll believe that when I see it, though. Here's a big hug today for you! Hugs, Falco

V4U today. For over a month now there are a pair of buzzards that perch on the neighbor's roof towards the end of our block. They preen each other and are a couple for sure. They fly together then fly back to the roof to perch again. It's kind of cute even though they aren't cute birds. LOL :) I am glad the buzzards didn't pick our roof to perch on, let's just say that the neighbor's roof could use a cleaning. LOL :) Wishing you a nice day. From, Mayo

  Hi, Kiddo
Our mom does the same on her day off with the lazing in PJ's until she has to go out for something. Our front fence and gate is metal without the mesh so can see out, but like your mom it's a tshirt and plain jammie pants.

We like avicakes. It's a special treat. Think hungry wild critters will eat anything that is edible - they can't be as picky as you! Nutriberries are yummy too.

Your mom must so love watching your devour those lima beans!

Mom says that sounds like a great idea - not getting dressed for a day ! ! ! Mom slept in this morning and is staying home with me - we're making Easter Babka today ! (Lithuanian Easter Bread). Dad is going to the g'parronts to start prepping to paint the living room/dining room. He figures if he can get the furniture moved and the taping done today - tomorrow he'll do the walls and Monday the ceilings -

Yesterday there were yard workers across the street and boy did I let them know how I felt about it ! Mom keeps trying to explain that everything I see isn't mine, but I disagree ! ! So she finally closed the curtain by my window . . . harrruuummmmphhhhhhh

I think that one day a week should be jammie day for mom's and fids! As for the Avicakes ... they are nasty. I won't even touch them. Mom & I don't like lima beans .... Are these dinners a brand? What kind?
Well, it’s official; our little area received a total of 200 inches of snow this season. We won for the most snow in the Lower Peninsula! I feel so lucky. The record was 183 inches. At least it’s slowly melting and we can see some bare spots on the top of the sunny hill. Looks like Easter Sunday will be rainy and maybe 50 degrees. I hope the Easter Bunny wears his coat and boots when he comes to visit.

MOM HAD A STRESSFUL DAY TODAY. SHE TOOK G-MA GROCERY SHOPPING, THEY WENT TO SAMS AND THEN WALMART. THEY WERE GONE 3 HOURS. G-MA DOES NOT WALK TO FAST AND SHE LOOKS AT EVERYTHING IN THE STORE. MOM SAYS THEY WERE ONLY SUPPOSED TO GET WHAT WAS ON THE LIST FOR EASTER DINNER.

WELL THE WORST PART WAS SOME GUY BACKED INTO MOM'S SUV. IT WAS SOME 90 YR OLD GUY WHO SAW THAT SOMEONE WAS LEAVING A HANDICAP SPOT AND REALLY WANTED IT BUT HE WAS PAST THE PARKING SPOT. SO HE DECIDED TO BACK UP TO GET IT, WELL MOM WAS THERE AND ANOTHER CAR WAS BEHIND HER SO SHE COULDN'T MOVE. SHE HONKED HER HORN CONTINUOUSLY BUT THE GUY KEPT BACKING UP TILL HE HIT MOM. WELL MOM JUMPED OUT AND KNOCKED ON THE GUYS WINDOW. HE LOOKED AT HER AND SAID "WHATS WRONG?" ; MOM TOLD HIM THAT HE JUST BACKED UP AND HIT HER. HE DIDN'T SAY A WORD AS HE WAS CONCENTRATING ON GETTING INTO THAT HANDICAP PARKING SPACE. AS MOM STOOD THERE HE DROVE INTO THE SPACE AS SOON AS THE OTHER CAR LEFT. MOM COULD NOT BELIEVE IT. WELL THE ONLY GOOD THING IS THAT NO DAMAGE TO MOM'S SUV BUT THE GUY ENDED UP WITH A BUSTED TAILLIGHT AND DENTED IN HIS RIGHT REAR FENDER BELOW THE TAILLIGHT. MOM HAS THAT STEEL GRILL FRAME ON THE FRONT OF HER SUV AND THAT IS WHAT HE HIT. SO MOM WASN'T ABOUT TO PURSUE IT. THE GUY DIDN'T EVEN BOTHER TO CHECK OUT HIS CAR, MOM DOESN'T THINK HE REALLY KNEW WHAT HE DID. I THINK HE WAS TOO OLD TO BE EVEN DRIVING.

SO IT WAS NOT A GOOD DAY FOR MOM TODAY, TOO MUCH STRESS.

MOM WILL BE GOING TO THE GYM TOMORROW TO WORK OFF THE STRESS.

OH I AM SO GLAD THAT YOU LIKED YOUR EASTER GIFTS. MOM GOT ME THE EXACT SAME THING BUT A DIFFERENT COLOR. THERE IS A LADY THAT LIVES ABOUT AND HOUR AWAY THAT MAKES ALL KINDS OF UNIQUE BIRD TOYS. SHE HAS A PAGE UP ON FACEBOOK. MOM CHOOSES WHAT SHE WANTS AND SHE SHIPS IT TO US.

WE ARE NOT SURE EXACTLY WHEN LEXI WILL BE GOING HOME. MOM THINKS IT WON'T BE TILL SATURDAY SOMETIME. MOM WAS PROUD OF LEXI TODAY, SHE WALKED ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE END OF THE STREET TODAY, THATS THE LONGEST WALK SHE HAS TAKEN. MOM IS GOING TO HAVE A TALK WITH HER SISTER ABOUT LEXI'S WEIGHT AND HER BAD LEG. SHE REALLY NEEDS THAT FIXED.

I GUESS MOM'S ARE ENTITLED TO HAVE A LAZY DAY. MOM USUALLY JUST DRESSES IN HER WORST SWEAT PANTS AND T-SHIRT. SHE ONLY STAYS IN HER PJ'S IF SHE IS SICK.

THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT IT GETTING UP TO 70 ON EASTER SUNDAY. WILL WAIT TO SEE.

HAVE A WONDERFUL FRIDAY MY LOVE

YOUR SOON TO BE FREE WIFEBIRD,

  Heya, Kiddo!
Yeah, now that would be sweet, wouldn't it, if Mom could get a Harley for me? Hehe. She hope she hears from them...but you know, she if fine if she doesn't get anything. She just is enjoying herself at home with me, and doing whatever she wants. That is pretty powerful stuff. She has spent so much time working she forgot how nice it is to do nothing. Or whatever she wants to do.

Ah, today was a superb day! Got head scritches, tons of Mom time, and even preened the ear I tried to pierce yesterday. Mom didn't go anyplace today, which was the reason for it being superb. But she decided to stay in, and do some things around the apt. Fine with me.

Her friend called and asked Mom about whether or not she would take the office job. Mom told her friend that if she were already on early retirement, it would be the perfect job. But since Social Security bases the amount they pay out on last three years of working, Mom had to try to at least get a higher paying job. If she can, she will hope that it is a contract that lasts for a year, at least. If not, she will figure out what she wants to do and get her money from the IRA/401k. She has been working on her hobby, which is making earrings and pendants. She loves doing that. She is also straightening up the table with all her stuff--which has been pretty cluttered up cuz she has not been working on that much.

It was about 50 degrees here today. Sunny at times. Of course, tomorrow is supposed to be in the 40's. Oh well. She will be running to the store and picking up good stuff for Easter dinner at Grandpa's. And then she will be with me in the afternoon and think about the significance of the day some thousands of years ago.

Terrific Thursday to ya!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Kiddo
Mom does the same thing when she makes recipes,changes things to delete lots of calories also!She'll send you the actual recipe so your sweet Mom can make the changes to it her way! Mom will have to check out that baking Splenda,that's a greyt idea!
Mom spent the day at home cleaning up all the cluttered paperwork all over the file thing on the kitchen table and the computer credenza,she took everything and put them in files and the ones she didn't need anymore she tossed out.Now everything looks nice and neat and she can just go to the folder and find what she is looking for without having to go through a pile of papers!
It was a freezing cold day here today only made it to 40 by late afternoon,the sun was out this morning but was it frigid,in the low 30's,then the sun disappeared and it got dark,before the sun came back by dinnertime for an hour or so!
Oh how I wish to be able to go outside again in the sunshine,I so enjoyed being out there on Saturday when Mom had us out there doing our birdicures!It was nice to be able to hear the birds singing and feel the warm sun on my back again,but what's with this one day only thing? I sure hope that Easter is a nice warm day here for us!You sure are right about those AviCakes!None of us like them either!And they do smell bad!Who eats that stuff anyway?Not me!Mom dumped ours out for the CawCaws and even they wouldn't touch them!Maybe the squirrels and chipmunks ate them!Have you ever tried the cranberry nutriberries?Now those are really good!
No one here likes those lima beans and they put them in the mixed veggies,you should see my skin sibs pick them out of the mix,they tried to get my cousin Bella to eat them(CAG)she was eating them for a while,she won't eat them now though!I should pack them up and send them off to you so you can enjoy them!LOL!Mom will be going out again tomorrow and I'll be going with her to spend the day with my cousin Trixie II again while they go out and do their errand thing!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs!Love always,Dixie

  Hi Kiddo
Insurance does stink! And everyone knows you are a very good boy, you know that.
Mom had 2 tours this morning, one with Kindergarten kids and one with fifth grade. I like the pulling a train with your teeth analogy for the K kids, thanks, Cookie's mom! Mom always says it's like herding cats. They were pretty much all over the place. The second group was more fun for mom, they were from a rural area in PA, so knew a lot of the plants and animals they were looking at already. Mom likes the PA natural history tour, because she can go almost anywhere in the museum and talk about the state. If one area is crowded, she can move on. Tonight Bree is finally coming for the birdicures, so mom and her sister will go out early for dinner. They should get back in plenty of time.
I hope you are having a lovely day filled with sun, warmer temps, and lots of love. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kiddo
V4U today. Nothing new here, just busy as usual. The weather has been up and down, freezing cold at night. Sure hope this is the last of the cold snap and the real spring weather will stay once and for all. We're going to have a full house for Easter, so lots of work to do between now and then. Wishing you all a very Happy Easter. From, Mayo

  Hi Kiddo
It's Popeye.
Yes, dad can fix the oven. He pulled the old igniter out and will order and install a new one.
Yesterday was another disaster day. Mom's bank account was hit by someone through PayPal for $670. Mom called the bank to try to put a stop payment on it but it already went through. She called the fraud dept. but they said she had to wait 48 hours for her information to show up in their computers. So tomorrow she'll have to spend more time on the phone with the bank. That money was for bill paying. Dad called his broker and had an emergency transfer made from his retirement account so the bills won't be late. To be safe, mom and dad will have to get new bank accounts and new Target Debit cards. Mom will also have to get a new Nordstrum Debit card. What a pain. Dad said he'd like to find the person that hacked mom's account information. I'm not sure what he'd do but I know it wouldn't be pretty. Yesterday mom and dad went to see "12 Years a Slave. Dad said it was one of the best movies he'd ever seen. it was very sad. Today mom and dad work at the police dept. so we're locked down again.
Hope your day was good.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Hey Kiddo!
We are happy to hear that your mom is making some progress with the insurance and that her doctor is helping too. That whole situation is so ridiculous ! Remember the days when health insurance wasn't a hassle? Yeah....that was a long time ago!
Well good for you buddy! You actually like your outside carrier now! Bet you mom is really happy about that! And....sounds like you got some extra nutriberries too!
Hope you have a great day!
Love,
Raffikki

  Hi,Kiddo
Guess doc's offices get confused if one has more than one ins to bill. The parronts get that a lot and never seem to bill the correct one first or never bill the second one or some such thing. Usually works out eventually but lots of wasted time on phone calls and the like. Hopefully your mom gets everything that should be covered paid for.

That's great you no longer seem scared of that bigger carrier. Perhaps you know it means time with your mom and also those nutriberry snacks.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hey Kiddo
Good for you ! Getting into your carrier without fussing !

It's Thursday ! That means that around noon today mom will be on vacation - of course it'll be a while longer till she's home. She works with a junior high student and he wants to finish his book project on RED BADGE OF COURAGE (yep, they STILL have to read it !) Anyway, his mom called last night that he just wants it out of the way before vacation, so he and mom are meeting up at the public library after school for a while.

I'm beginning to wonder how much of this vacation will belong to me ! The parronts are going to start painting g'ma and g'pa's house :( sigh -

At least the sun is shining and I'm near my window ! Did you know that Kallie and Dixie are this week's guest hosts of Name that Tune ? Go try your wing at it ! Page 231616 !

Happy Thursday - love Cookie

HI MY SWEET KIDDO. I THINK LEXI GOES HOME ON SATURDAY BUT IF HER PARENTS COME HOME EARLY ON FRIDAY SHE COULD GO HOME LOTS SOONER. I WILL BE SO HAPPY AS I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO SPEND ANY TIME WITH G-PA ON THE COUCH. THAT IS MINE AND G-PA'S COUCH. MOM IS VERY PROUD OF ME WHEN I AM IN MY CAGE. I PLAY WITH MY TOYS AND EAT MY FOOD. SHE SAYS ONLY A FEW MORE DAYS TILL LEXI GOES HOME. GOOD RIDDANCE TO THE FURCOUSIN I SAY.

WOW THAT IS GREAT THAT YOU GOT IN YOUR CARRIER BY YOURSELF WAITING TO GO OUTSIDE. YOU ARE SO BRAVE AND OF COURSE YOU LOVE YOUR SUNBATHS, 2 NUTRIBERRIES HELPS TOO.

IT WAS STILL A BIT COOL HERE, ABOUT 47 DEGREES AND VERY WINDY. ONCE AGAIN THE SUN DID NOT HELP.

MOM HAS TO TAKE G-MA SHOPPING FOR EASTER SUPPLIES. G-MA IS MAKING MACARONI SALAD, THEN WE ARE SUPPLYING THE PIES, THE POP AND TEA. THAT IS A LOT OF MONEY ON FOOD AND DRINK. MOM CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY HER BROTHER AND SISTER IN LAW CAN'T EVER BUY POP OR TEA. WE ALWAYS HAVE TO SUPPLY THAT IF WE WANT SOMETHING TO DRINK.

I HOPE YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY TOMORROW WITH YOUR MOM. ENJOY THE SUN FOR ME TOO.

YOUR DEPRIVED WIFEBIRD,
