  Hello Molly~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Turned out to be a sunny one here.
It's movie night so I guess we are all going to bed early. Mom is taking McKenzie on a very long walk before so she will be tired out. Mom said we could get up for a while when she gets home. They are going to see Captain America Civil War.
We didn't do much today. The kitchen always seems to need cleaning and there is always laundry. Tomorrow we will be straightening out the pantry yet again! Seems like that always needs to be done too!
Road work continues at night. Hard to tell what they are doing but the left lanes are still not paved. They put some sort of pink canvas looking stuff in holes and piled asphalt on top. That part was paved over when mom drove this morning. Hopefully the left lanes will be paved tonight and that should be it!
Have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Flitzer, readying for Dad's trip
Happy Monday. Dad is packing and running around the house setting up "bird-care"stations.
He's nervous about leaving me w Aunt Kathy - they were both miserable to each other last time.
Dad will be gone 5 days, and is praying we all survive the duration.

Dad is visiting his Mom in Kentucky - and he'll be flying. He hates travel, hates flying, and hates being away from home.

Hoping all goes well.

Hello dear friends-

Dad's making preparations to leave on his short vacation. Of course it will not seem short for either of us.
-
Aunt Kathy, the Bird-Sitter, will be lookin in on me, and my dear Uncle Geno promises to visit as well, so they will help pass the time....but nothing's the same without Dad. It's gonna be tough.
I have Dad trained for when it's time for fruit, when it's time for seeds. . .
Dad keeps telling me to be nice - last time I was so sad and angry and everything else that I was miserable to the bird-sitter . . . .
= = =
Saturday was a nice day. Dad and Uncle Geno took a short drive into the country.
Today is rainy and Dad will be at the movies in the afternoon.

  Hello Miss Lucy~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I can't believe I'm BOTD! I am so excited and so grateful to all my friends here. It is still such an honor to be picked from all the awesome birds here to have a day in the spotlight!
We have had a crazy morning already! It was pretty loud last night since they were paving the road across the street. Who knew that paving included pounding? I didn't! It was the stream roller I guess! Mom cranked the radio up but you could still feel a bit of shaking. I squawked a few times and Merlin spent most of the night in the window watching it all! McKenzie slept through it all!! They were done by 4 am but I think I'll be grabbing a nap later!
We have a wetland that runs the length of the complex. It is fenced in but it's just a plank fence and not totally to the ground. When mom was walking McKenzie this morning, McKenzie stuck her head under the fence that encloses the wetland and pulled out a Mole! Thank goodness mom has been working on "drop" with her because when mom screamed, she dropped it! The poor thing was flailing around and so scared! McKenzie knew she had done something bad cause she flattened out on the walkway and looked guiltily at mom!
Mom locked McKenzie in the car and grabbed the car towel. She picked up the little Mole and checked him out. Thankfully he wasn't hurt! He kept flailing and growled at mom! Mom crawled against the fence and found his hole and set him down there. He dug a little and then popped back down in the hole. Mom told McKenzie that there will be no hunting allowed! We read later on that coyotes dig up moles for food. Dad thinks any kind of dog would do it and that is probably true. Obviously there will be no more walking anywhere near the fence! I don't think moms heart could take another incident like that!hahahahaha She was so scared that McKenzie had killed it.
Come on over to the castle today! Mikey and Kacey have had Lizzy and Chipper prepare a wonderful luncheon for us! I can't wait to see you!!!
Enjoy your day!

Hello. cool morning in Buffalo.

Dad busy cleaning, moving things, and getting things changed so men can measure front windows for much-needed replacement. The windows don't open and it gets oppressively hot here in the Summertime.

Those Quadruple-Berry Muffins were wonderful the other day. Dad knows how to make me happy from beak to tail.

I was very good for Aunt Maria on grooming day. I did flit across the room for a moment and landed in a plant [yeah - they laughed at me], but after that, I was still and patient for the grooming.

  Hello Molly~
I hope you had a wonderful day! We did the chores we never got done yesterday. Kind of boring but mom put Minions on for me while she was cleaning the kitchen! I love those squeaky yellow guys!
McKenzie was a bit rowdy this afternoon. She thinks that the cat is going to play with her like another puppy would but we all know that is not going to happen. He sits and whacks at her and whines for mom to come pick him up. I think he is doing that on purpose to that mom will pick him up. He certainly could get up on something, like he usually does, but I think he just wants mom to rescue him!
The road construction is continuing at night. The trucks just stared showing up. Mom put the radio on a bit louder last night so we wouldn't have to listen to the beeping when the trucks back up. Mom was hoping they would be farther along at this point. They still have not paved across the street from us so maybe tonight. Then they will start tearing up our side of the street! The parts they have finished do look very nice and are really smooth to drive on!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! }

  Hello Molly~~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I did not get many notes out yesterday just because we ran out of time! Actually, it's all moms fault since she fell asleep when she got home from work! Guess she was tired but it sure did put us behind! We managed to get the stuff done that needed to get done but it was time for her to go to bed after that! She only has one more night to work and then we get our weekend!
Really nothing exciting going on. Jennifer is not feeling well so McKenzie and I are trying to be quite so she can sleep! Merlin sleeps all day anyway so it's no big deal for him! I'm doing pretty good but McKenzie doesn't understand quiet yet.
I bet the lilac is just beautiful. We had everything blooming early since we had such warm days at the beginning of the month. More normal weather now.
I hope your day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Molly!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight's toy isn't pretty, and very simple, but so much fun to shred! You will need,

- 3 paper bags
- Crinkle paper OR tissue paper
- Safe stringing material
- Treats

Take your first paper bag and open it. Take another paper bag, and without opening it, put it in the first one. When it is in, you can stick your hand in and open it up. When that one is opened, take one more closed one and stick it inside the others, and then open that one too. Stuff the bags with crinkle paper or tissue paper, and throw a treat or two in it. Close the bags, and fold over the tops. Take a piece of rope, make a loop, and then make a hole near the top of the bag (that goes through the front and folded over part), and string the loop through the hole.

I know this toy isn't the prettiest or most amazing, but Jester and I just love them! And they are so easy to make, and mom uses the hanging loops over and over again. LOL. Picture in my gallery!

Thanks for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

  Hello Molly~
I hope you are having a great day. Cool, wet and windy here. Mom had to put the heat back up a bit in the bedroom to make it nice and cozy for me! Perhaps she should not have put away all that winter stuff!Hehehehehehe It was like daring Mother Nature to bring back the cold!
They have been repaving in my neighborhood. They got onto my street last night. They took a big backhoe and smashed the cement divider that goes down the center of the street! It was noisy but over quickly! They just smashed it and swept it up. Now there is just a yellow line there. Guess they'll be back after the weekend to pave it. Mom left for work right after they did it and she said it runs all the way up to the freeway~about a mile up the street! They seem to be moving pretty quickly!!
I hope the day is just fabulous!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Saturday Flitzer
Hello.
A nice week here in Buffalo - warmer, with a little rain. Now it's going to be cooler, but not too bad.
--
Dad is making preparations for his May trip to see Grandma in Kentucky. He will be there for Mother's Day and on Derby Day as well. [I'm suggesting a flowered hat, but he doesn't like the idea].
When Grandma calls on Sunday I call to her, sometimes making their conversation hard to hear.
"I'm here, Grandma, it's me, Flitzer". She often wonders how Dad can live with me. Ha-Ha.
--
Aunt Kathy, the bird-sitter will be checking in on me, while Dad is away.
Last time, we were both miserable to each other. Dad is asking me to PLEASE TRY and be good. We shall see...

  Hello Molly~
I hope you are having a great day! It's only 80 here today so that is tolerable! There is a nice breeze and mom has the window open so I'm enjoying that. My cage was all cleaned out again this morning so I've been working on redecorating.
McKenzie had an upset tummy this morning. Ian bought her a rawhide bone at Petco yesterday and it did not agree with her. Mom will stick with the Dingo bones since they have never upset her tummy. Petco only had the tiny Dingo bones so mom will pick up the more appropriate sized ones at her work. She is feeling fine now and wants to eat everything in sight! Just like normal!hehehehehe
We have been doing chores most of the day. Mom washed the winter jackets and is going to hang them in the hall closet. She got the stove scrubbed and wants to get some things done in her bedroom later. She will have to wait for Jennifer to get home so that she can occupy McKenzie while mom and I go in the bedroom. If McKenzie is in the bedroom you have to watch her all the time because she likes to grab books and try to chew them up! That is a huge NO NO in this house! I don't get to do it so she can't either!
I hope the day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Molly~
I hope you are having a wonderful day.
Mom is having one of those days where she can not get anything done! I blame it all on the dog!hehehehehe Mom says there is blame to share!
I have been throwing pieces of wood out to McKenzie and the dork tries to eat them!! Mom asked me to stop it but I don't think it's my fault if the dog is a dope!
When I got bored with that game I decided it was time to rip the paper up on the bottom of the cage. That always gets the puppy running!! I think she wants to rip paper up also. Mom finally had to put her on the leash to keep her away from my cage. Merlin started howling for food so mom filled up his dry food bowl. He took a few bites and then walked over and started whacking the dog. Guess he was jealous because McKenzie was paying attention to me! The turtles even got into it by pushing their filter over!! Mom said something about needing a vacation!hehehehehehe
Another beautiful day here. Suppose to be nice again tomorrow. I like having the window open and all the sunshine!
We forgot about Mother's day! You guys must be very busy! Moms mother has been gone for nearly 15 years now so she doesn't really celebrate it anymore.
I hope you have an awesome day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Hi. A perfectly wonderful weekend here in Buffalo.
Dad took me outside in the Travel Cage both Saturday and Sunday.
It was great seeing the outdoors and feeling the sun. We took a walk and visited friends in the neighborhood.

The Spring Milonga was fun, but Dad had to step away before the end, that's why I seemed silent for a while.

  Hi Molly!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we are making paper plate tacos. You will need,

- A paper plate (a full sized one for a bigger bird or a mini one for a small bird)
- Safe stringing material
- Cupcake papers
- Wood slats
- Finger Traps
- Crinkle paper
- A bead

Fold your paper plate in half, and poke a hole through the middle. String a piece of rope through the hole, and knot it on one side. Take a few cupcake papers, flatten them, poke a hole in the center, and then string them on the side of string that is not knotted. Then string on a wooden slat, and poke a hole in the center of two finger traps, and string them on. Then string on a smaller wood piece, a bead, and then knot that side of the rope. Then poke a hole near the top of the plate, make a loop with rope, and string the loop through that hole. Now take crinkle paper and fill the middle of the plate, make sure that it is sticking out of the sides too!

These are really fun to destroy! There is a picture in my gallery!

Thanks for voting for me!

  Happy Saturday from Flitzer's Dad
Flitzer's Dad here with the tale [tale] of an (almost) lost bird
- - - - - - - - - - -
The house got quiet - and I couldn't locate Flitzer. I looked everywhere, calling his name.
No sound. No response
--
I know he had been in the video cabinet - as my DVD Sleeve for "THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA" was shredded all over the place.

He did not make any sounds when I called, nor when I rattled the DVDS.

After searching the rest of the house - I started taking out DVDs from the cabinet. For sure he was hiding back there. Keeping perfectly still.

Thank Goodness he's OK - Sometimes it's tough being a Dad!

  Hello Molly~
I hope the day is going great! Mom was gone for nearly 2 hours getting dad to the airport. Not a ton of traffic this morning but there is more up near Seattle then there is down here. McKenzie really enjoyed it. She watches planes. Don't know if that is unusual or not but every time one of the big transports come over to land at JBLM, she stops to watch!
She managed to get out of her seatbelt when mom was leaving the airport and came to sit in the front! I don't think she understands that dad is not coming back later!
When mom got home they were starting the pressure washing outside. It was very loud and McKenzie and Merlin got scared. I was just fine! Mom moved us all and we spent an hour waiting for it to be done! Now we have wait for the stairs to be dry so we can put our doormat back out!
I hope your day is spectacular!! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

I hope you had a great day. It was nice here. Mom and I did chores and laundry. We cleaned out a bunch of drawers in the bathroom. There was some old stuff there that we threw out and then checked our first aid kit to make sure it was filled up. Mom hates it when she needs a band aid and there are none left! Mom went to the market across the street to pick up some food for Merlin and return the movies from yesterday. After that she was home the rest of the day.
Enjoy the evening!!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Another quiet one around here. I've been busy trying to get the puppy to come close enough so that I can give her a nip! Mom keeps telling me no but McKenzie is so trusting and really wants to come closer. Mom told me it wasn't nice to tease her like that so I'm back to chewing some toys for now.
Mom managed to break the little toe on her left foot so she is not walking very quickly today. She doesn't even remember how she did it! She walks into things all the time so she probably banged it on something yesterday! She is a real klutz!!

  Hello Molly~
I hope you are having a great day! Quiet one around here! Mom got most of the kitchen cleaned up but then McKenzie started chasing the cat again so she had to stop and get the puppy. We have managed to get some laundry done but mom is going to have to finish up the kitchen to get George and Gracie's tank cleaned out. I suppose I will help by supervising.
Starting out cloudy here but it's suppose to be back to sunshine this afternoon. We are getting spoiled with all the sunshine lately! No complaints because it's been very pretty. I have been enjoying looking at all the trees coming alive with color and the gardeners planted some primroses out front on Friday. They look so pretty!!
When dad called to make the appointment for McKenzie with the groomer they asked what breed she was and he told them. They want to meet all hybrids before they start any service. McKenzie is a real people dog and loves everyone! She flopped down for belly rubs while wagging her tail so they were fine with her. Mom told dad it is not a good idea to mention the coyote part to anyone. Some people are afraid that they might be too aggressive and that is understandable.
How are your dogs doing? I am happy to say that McKenzie has not had an accident in the house for 3 weeks now! It seems like it took forever but she is potty trained!

  Hi Molly!
Hi Everybirdie! Mom was out all day today, her church had an event for the younger kids, and since her sister was going, she went and helped out. So I was stuck in my cage, but I did get a new toy, plus a box to shred up. Today, we are going to teach you how to make a finger trap wreath. You will need,

- 1 large bagel (regular or skinny)
- Mini bagels
- Finger traps
- Bird safe stringing material
- OPTIONAL: Crinkle paper

This toy is VERY simple! Get your large bagel, and take a finger trap and fold it over the large bagel, with the ends facing out. Then take a mini bagel, and put the two ends of the finger trap through it. Repeat this until the whole bagel is filled up with finger traps. OPTIONAL: You can fill the ends of the finger traps up with crinkle paper. Then just tie a piece of rope on, make a loop, and you're done!

Peatree really likes this toy! Finger traps are her favorite! There is a picture of one in my gallery.

Thanks for the vote!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

  Hi Molly
CRAZY WEATHER!!! We were under winter advisory last night! We were supposed to get 2-4 inches overnight, it ended up warming up slightly overnight, so we ended up with a layer of ice in addition to 2 inches of snow! It only went to 36°for the high today and the low will be 22°. The average temps should be 58°/39°! Mom thinks that we had spring in November & December and now we are having winter! It has snowed more since the first day of spring than it did all winter!

Mom has gotten some much needed rest the past 2 days and nights! The injections have helped so much! Mom was never able to sleep more than 2-3 hrs at a time because pain would wake her. But the last 2 nights she slept 6 whole hrs in a row both nights! She's so happy & rested! Mom can't remember the name of the medication that her Dr injected, it's not actually cortisone, it can be used more frequently. She'll write down the name of it when she goes back to her pain Dr at the end of the month.

I hope your day was a good one!

I hope you are having a fabulous day! Very sunny and beautiful here. We are suppose to hit 80 today. Not sure if it will happen but there are so many trees outside my bedroom window that it won't feel warm in there anyway.
Mom and dad went to Costco this morning. They went right when it opened so that it wouldn't be too hot for McKenzie in the car. They parked in the shade and left the windows cracked. It wasn't even 60 at that point so she was fine.
McKenzie had a great time at her very first Spa Day yesterday. Her groomers was named Sarah and she is a very nice young lady. McKenzie just loved her and she was very patient with McKenzie when she started to freak out over the blow dryer. Mom took McKenzie over there this morning to give Sarah a thank you card and a tip. McKenzie thought she was going to get another bath!hahahaha Wonder why she likes it at the groomers and not at home?? McKenzie got another food bowl while they were at Petsmart. You are not going to believe this but she chewed up her food bowl! What was she thinking?? She got a lovely pink bowl that is stainless steel on the inside. If there is a way to chew it up I promise you McKenzie will find it! Mom wanted to get her the Seahawk Hoodie but dad thinks we should wait to see if she is going to get any bigger. I think dad doesn't want her wearing clothes but mom is determined that when football season comes around, McKenzie will be wearing the Seahawk colors.
I hope the day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Molly
Mom's "dumbphone" crashed AGAIN! Mom took it back in to the phone store on Saturday to get it fixed again. A factory reset didn't work this time so they kept it to have someone else look at it. Mom wanted them to give her a new phone, but they said only if it couldn't be fixed...unless she wanted to BUY a new phone...SHE DIDN'T! She didn't get her phone back until today! Mom was so mad, I think she had smoke coming out of her ears! She was having withdrawal from not being able to access the internet for 5 days!

I'm going to be in lockdown tomorrow morning, mom has an appointment with her pain management doctor to get more cortisone injections. He gave her several injections in her left knee last week and last month he gave her several injections in her right shoulder. He wants her to come back tomorrow because he wants to do her shoulder again. That means I'll get lots of playtime, mom always feels a lot better after getting injections!

I hope your day was a good one!

  Hi Molly!
My previous owner had me since I was a baby, and she did take me out of the cage for years. But one day, I fell, and bit her to grab on so I wouldn't fall, and then she became afraid of me. ): She didn't trust me anymore, so I didn't get out for five or more years until momma Maddy got me. Now I am taken out on a daily basis and loved on and played with! (:

Hi Everybirdie! Today we will be making a paper plate fan toy. You will need,

-6 paper plates (full size for big birds, small size for smaller birds)
-Bird safe stringing material (we use poly rope)
- Mini bagels OR wood blocks OR large beads

Take your string and tie a knot at the bottom. Poke holes in the bottom of all of your paper plates. String one of the paper plates on the rope, and then string on your wood block, large bead, or if you are using mini bagels, string on three of them. Then put another plate, then another block/bead/3bagels, and so on. When you string on the last plate, tie a knot. Now, bunch the plates together at the top, and poke a hole through the tops. String a new piece of rope through the holes on all 6 plates, and then knot it really tight. Then make your hanging loop, and you're done!

I really enjoy these! They are fun to shred apart. There is a picture of one made with small plates in my gallery.

Thank you for voting!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

  Hello Molly~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Very pretty up here again. We are suppose to be reaching 80 tomorrow. A bit early for that but it's only one day. The 70's are perfectly lovely and I think we should just have 70 year round!hehehehehe
I really enjoyed the new Star Wars. There was lots of stuff blowing up and you know that I love that. I think dad liked it too. Mom, Ian and Jennifer had already seen it at the movie theater but said there were things they missed the first time.
I have had a lovely afternoon hanging out with mom. I got to have her all to myself. McKenzie is gone for a spa day at the groomers. First time she has been there. She was putting on her cuteness when mom dropped her off and everyone fell in love with her. She really is a sweet puppy and is very nice to everyone she meets.
I got to run around the living room and that was lots of fun. I got picked up when I started to chew on the carpet! Go figure!
Dad and Ian have gone to pick up McKenzie. She just had a bath and they are going to file her nails also. She has very sharp nails.
The rest of the day will be spent doing the chores we should have done earlier!hahahahaha Playing was much more fun and the chores will still be there later.
Enjoy your day!

  Hi Molly
Hello, this is Grey Bird! I am very excited to be running for Bird of the Month this month, and am excited to get to know you all better!

Before I get on to my campaign, I know that you guys wanted to hear a little more about me. Mom realized that if you aren't in the BC Facebook group, that you don't really know much about me at all! I have been with mom for just a little over a year. Before I came to live with her, she had been my Godmom and had met me one time a few years ago. When I came to live with her, I hadn't been out of my cage or held in a very long time. Within the first few weeks of being with mom, we became good friends. I let her scratch me, and loved to have her sit near my cage and talk to me. I didn't want to step up for awhile though. It wasn't until August, I jumped off my cage and didn't know how to get back up. So I called mom over and held my foot up and asked her to pick me up. I stepped right up for her! After that, I kinda just started stepping up. Now, mom and I are such good friends! I am totally hand friendly and NOT cage bound. I would so much rather being sitting on mom's lap or hand than do anything else. :P I am a very happy birdie!

On to my campaign! Back in 2012, I know that Peatree's BOTM campaign theme was "Birdie Boredom Busters", where she talked about teaching tricks, and playing games, and a few different bird toys, so I decided to do a similar theme, but focus totally on making bird toys! Mom is going to help me and make a different bird toy every day, and we will take pictures of them and share how they were made! We will do toys for little birds and bigger birds. Today, we will share with you how to make puffs! What you will need is,

- Coffee filters (for big birds) or cupcake papers (for smaller birds)
- Bird safe string (we use poly rope or leather)
- A few beads OR wood blocks

Take your coffee filters or cupcake paper, and you want to cut the sides of them into strips about every inch or two (do not cut the middle part!). You can cut a bunch at a time. Then put holes in the middle, either with a hole punch or with scissors. Once you have them all cut and ready, take your stringing material and knot the bottom, then string on a bead or wood block. Then you are going to start putting on the coffee filters/cupcake papers. Put one on the string face down, and then the next one face up, and the next one face down, and so on. Do this until the puff reaches your desired fluffiness. Once you finish the puff, string on a bead or block, knot it, and then tie your hanging loop. Then you are done!

Paris and Peatree are big fans of the cupcake paper puffs, and I like the coffee filter ones occasionally. I have a picture of each one posted in my gallery.

See you tomorrow!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

  Hello Molly~
I hope you are having a fabulous day! Pretty nice around here still but the rain will be back tonight. I can not complain since so many places are still having snow in April!
Took a shower this afternoon and McKenzie thought I was playing. She jumped up on the front of my play cage! Mom grabbed her and told her no! Dad said it would have been the perfect time for me to use my new "McKenzie No" phrase but I was too busy trying to get over to bite her!
Dad has his Fender guitar hanging on the wall between the living room and the kitchen. It's been there forever! He walked by and strummed it and McKenzie went nuts. She growled and barked! Mom told her it was nothing scary but she does not like it. Dad tried to show it to her but she kept growling. It's back on the wall now but she is keeping an eye on it. She is a very strange puppy!
Uncle Chuck called us this morning. We were surprised. He is doing okay. Mom posted a note on the calendar page and on the BC community page on Facebook.
Did you get some of the wedding cake??? Cake is always good!
I hope your day is just stellar!!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Molly~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Another beautiful spring day up here!
I didn't get too many notes done yesterday. Mom had to go out and was gone longer than she had planned. By the time she got home it was time for bed and dad had already taken over the computer anyway!
Gardeners are here this morning and out mowing. It is keeping McKenzie occupied for a little while at least.
She is shedding and mom has been trying to keep her brushed up. It's difficult because McKenzie still thinks brushing her hair is a game! Mom tried it out on the balcony and there were some tufts of fur left out there. A sparrow came by and collected them! I guess McKenzie's fur is going to be part of their nest! Pretty cool!!
Not much planned for today. Mom does have to go to the market since dad is home and seems to be eating everything!hahahahahah Good thing I have my mini pancakes stashed because he ate all the bread yesterday so not toast for me this morning! Pancakes are just as good!!
Enjoy they day and I hope it's spectacular!

  Hello Molly~
I hope you had a great day! It's very pretty up here. The wind is still blowing so it doesn't feel as warm as I'd like but it was still nice.
Mom had lots of cleaning to get caught up on so we did that most of today. Still have things we want to get done but it's our weekend so we have tomorrow also.
I'm an Auntie!! Moms sister canary hatched 3 chicks! There is still one egg to go and I've got my toes crossed the little guy show up soon! Moms sister is rather freaked out and has been doing a lot of reading up on canary babies! I think they'll be just fine.
Uncle Chuck is at the rehab center now. They don't have phones in the rooms so his sister is suppose to bring him his cell phone.
I hope you have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

Greetings from Flitzer and Dad.
-
Love from Buffalo, New York.
We had a warm, sunny Easter weekend - is was so pretty and wonderful
Sadly we're back to cold rain, high winds and threats of ice and snow.
-
Dad and Uncle Geno saw a great movie the other day: "REMEMBER" (Dir Atom Egoyan) STarring Christopher Plummer. We read disappointing reviews, but we thought the film was Excellent.
Being a "smaller" film, I'm sure it won't stick around very long. We highly recommend it.
-
Tonight, friends are going to the local Art House Cinema to see a new Restoration
of Akira Kurosawa's film "RAN" from 1985. A great event!

Saying a prayer for Uncle Chuck.

  Hello Molly~
I hope you are having a wonderful Easter Sunday! McKenzie and I shared a blueberry muffin for breakfast and it was yummy. We don't really celebrate Easter around here since mom always has to work and Ian is still at work. Maybe we will do something when mom is off this week. She did get a couple of vegan chocolate bars and will share them with dad, Ian and Jennifer. I think the muffin was a much better idea!
Jennifer just got back from her sisters house. She went down on Friday for a birthday party for her brother in law. He and Ian share a birthday. They announced the sex of the new baby and Maddie is getting a little sister!! I think Maddie is very excited. I know I can't wait to meet her. They don't have a name picked out yet but I'm sure it will be great.
We talked to Uncle Chuck a while ago and he is doing okay. There is a complete update on from RaneBeau on the calendar page. Jenny and Lalo have gone over to visit with Aunt Denise and the flock which is just wonderful. I know Uncle Chuck feels much better knowing that they are safe and have lots of company.
Enjoy your day and I hope it's a very special Easter for everyone!
