Hi Everyone, I have some great news to share with you all. I was entered into my very first ever bird show by my birdsitter/bree- der. I was in the novice division for senegals. In two days I came away with a total of 6 ribbons. 4 first place ribbons, one 4th place and one 5th place ribbon. Could have won more but since my wings are clipped it held me back. When mom takes pics of me with my ribbons she is going to place them here on my page for all to see. She is so proud of me. Both my senegal parents were top show winning birds. Brother Maxi also won honorable mention for looking so good for his age of 15 3/4yrs.. ............. Met her at a bird fair. She took an instant liking to me and chose me as her new owner. I wasn't going to buy a bird but when she chose me, I just had to take her home. It was instant love!... ...HATCHDATE JAN 26, 2003..

  Hi SweetPepper
We had our new house checked on. All is well. The flooding was on the Myakka river and the parks around it. They are all closed now. So, no problem from Erica for us. Our house is in level 3 for hurricane warnings. We also have 3 shelters very close to our house so, no worries.
It's getting closer to my move, a week from Friday. I hope all the flooding is gone in our area. Our house is ok. I'm getting my swimsuit, flip flops shades ready!

  Hi Sweetpepper
No mom didnt take a picture of the moon...never even thought of it LOL.
I didn’t get a sunbath or even go outside today. Its hot and humid here again and looks like its going to be like this all week too. When I go to bed at night mom and I have a ritual where I kiss my jungle talk toys and a few others that I have. One of them is for babies and I don’t mess with it much during the day but when mom plays the music at night on the one button I really listen to it real close. Of course the lights are flashing and bounce off moms glasses too so could be another reason I get so interested in it when its bedtime. Then again just like a kid and not wanting to go to bed mom says. LOL. “A friend like you is like a four leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
GLAD YOUR MOM LIKED THE PICTURE--MOM WAS LAUGHING WHEN SHE WAS MAKING IT, CUZ IT TURNED OUT SO DARN CUTE! THE GOODIES ON A STICK ARE INCREDIBLE--SO MANY! HOWEVER, THE FRIED BUTTER ON A STICK IS NOT GOING TO BE ONE OF THEM. JUST THE THOUGHT OF IT...BLEGGH.

SO MOM DID THE FUN STUFF TODAY, AND I GOT TO SIT ON HER SHOULDER SUPERVISING HER. WE KEPT THE A/C OFF UNTIL AROUND 5 WHEN THE SUN WAS COMING IN. IT IS VERY HUMID AND DEW POINTY RIGHT NOW. I AGREE WITH YOU, 90'S IS TOO WARM WITH THIS MUGGY STUFF. EVEN THE 80'S IS, BUT WE CAN DEAL WITH IT.

SURE HOPE YOUR MOM IS NOT GOING TO HAVE MORE PAIN TONIGHT. JUST HATE TO THINK THAT SHE IS NOT ABLE TO SLEEP, OR EAT MUCH. WHEN IS HER NEXT APPOINTMENT?

WING HUGS AND BEAKY KISSES COMING YOUR WAY AND YOUR MOM'S AND KACEY'S!

  MY BLUSHING BRIDE
I KNOW THE PIC WON YESTERDAY, BUT I JUST SAW THIS ONE IN MY DROP DOWN OF GREETINGS TO YOU AND HAD TO USE IT.

NOW THIS BOY FRIEND. IS HE REALLY GORGEOUS OR SOMETHING? ALTHOUGH MOM AND ME BOTH AGREE HOW COULD HE BE WHEN HE SMOKES. WE HAVE HEARD A LOT OF GREEK MEN DO. HOWEVER THE GAMBLING IS JUST AS BAD AS BEING AN ALCOLHOLIC. YOUR MOM'S SISTER NEEDS TO BE SAVED, BUT UNFORTUNATELY THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN SAVE HER IS HERSELF. AND IT ISN'T A BAD THING TO SAY. HEY! MAYBE HE WILL DRIVE OFF A CLIFF! THAT WOULD BE QUICK AND RELATIVELY PAINLESS. YOUR MOM'S SISTER HAS IT BAD IF SHE HAS PUT HIM IN HER WILL. ACTUALLY IT IS A GOOD THING HE NEVER GOT DIVORCED OR THEY WOULD PROBABLY BE MARRIED ALREADY. ICK!

I DIDN'T GET A SUNBATH TODAY OR EVEN A COOKIE. MONDAYS ARE PRETTY MUCH A LOST CAUSE TILL IT COOLS DOWN. TRASH TRUCKS IN THE MORNING BEFORE MOM GOES TO THE GYM, AND JUST TOO HOT AFTER SHE GETS HOME ALTHOUGH IT COOLED DOWN TO MID 80s TODAY. DAD CALLED IT YESTERDAY, BUT HE SAYS ANOTHER HEAT WAVE IS NOT FAR BEHIND. PHOOEY!

HOPEFULLY LEXI WILL DROP THE WEIGHT SO SHE CAN GET HER TEETH CLEANED. I KNOW THAT IS IMPORTANT FOR DOGS. WE ARE SO LUCKY NOT TO HAVE ANY TEETH!

DID YOU SEE THE PIC KAJI'S MOM DID OF YOU AND I EATING FAIR FOOD? YUM!!

  Hi Sweetpepper
We sure hope mom finds out something before Friday if she's in pain! It's good that Lexi is getting some follow up good times with her mom.
Today at the center mom did the raptor aviaries and the RVS room. The 3 owlets that Martha fostered this year look like they're ready to go home any day now! The vulture is in fine feather as well. In the RVS room there were 7 raccoons, a ground hog, a skunk, and a red tailed hawk. Mom didn't read its chart, but it could be getting quarantined in case of West Nile virus. The center has been moderately successful in the past with palliative treatment in isolation, so maybe that's why the hawk was there.
After the center, mom went to the pool. The guys are still working in the yard, the cabinet people came today to finish the trim and put shelves in the pantry cabinet, and mom had time to finish her book at the pool.
We're looking forward to hosting some company this week, so we may not be on line consistently. Mom will be showing some special guests from MA around the Pittsburgh area, we hope. We'll let you know what's happening as soon as we find out. Meanwhile, I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of good summer weather and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

i am trying very hard to teach these young birds but you know teenagers. they never listen.

the hummingbirds are still coming to the feeders but their numbers have slowed down. mom just made a new batch of nectar which should last about a month. we have seen hummingbirds come as late as November. not many but they must be stragglers coming from the north. we got a light sprinkle of rain during the night but we need a lot more.

MOM SAYS THAT YOU NEVER KNOW THESE DAYS...GUYS SEEM TO BE DECENT, AND YOU START DATING THEM...AND THEN FIND OUT THEY ARE JERKS OF MAJOR PROPORTIONS. MOM SAYS THAT SHE MUCH PREFERS ME! SHE WOULD NOT MIND HAVING A NICE GUY AROUND, BUT SHE HAS HAD HER SHARE OF REAL FROGS AND IS JUST NOT INTERESTED IN GOING THRU THAT MESS AGAIN. NO THANKS!

COOL AND HUMID TODAY. GUESS WE GET HOT AGAIN THIS WEEK, SO I HOPE I CAN GET TO THE MARKET. I DO GET MY WINGS AND NAILS TRIMMED ON THURSDAY. THINK THEY SAID IT WOULD BE AROUND 90. YIKES!! BUT SURE IS BETTER THAN -20.

  Hi Sweetpepper
Yes your right having the rainy spring and part of summer sure made the season short this year or so it seems anyway.
Today was more humid and warmer here today though we did have some rain during the night. I got another bath and sun bath too before it got too hot. Last night when mom was putting me to bed she showed me the moon out the window. It was so big but it wasn’t real white like it was before. This time it was more orange almost like the sun but not that bright. Mom thought maybe cause it was cloudy out. Mom finally set my light to go off a half hour earlier with the timer so that should be better for now. “Our paths may change as life goes on but the bond between friends remain ever strong.” Left a vote for you my friend~ hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

I DO SO LOVE THAT PIC OF YOU. THE ORANGE STRAP BRINGS OUT YOUR COLORS SO BEAUTIFULLY!

TELL KACEY THAT CORI HAS AGREED TO GIVE UP WILBER IF THERE ARE NO PIGS AVAILABLE AFTER 9/3. ALSO MOM HAS ASKED PANTHER IF ONE OR TWO OF HIS FLOCKMATES MIGHT BE WILLING TO SIT BACK SINCE THEY HAVE FOUR PIGS RIGHT NOW AND WE HAVEN'T HEARD FROM THEM AT ALL. SO THERE'S A PRETTY GOOD CHANCE SHE WILL BE IN THE RACE. PLEASE TELL HER TO BE PATIENT; I AM LOOKING OUT FOR HER.

HEY!! OUR WEDDING PIC GOT BOTD! HOW COOL IS THAT? IT REALLY MAKES ME THINK A PREVIOUS BOTM WINNER WILL GET THE CROWN FOR SEPTEMBER UNLESS SOMEBIRDY DECIDES TO COME OUT AND RUN FOR IT. JUST THINK...IT COULD BE YOU OR ME. I WOULD NEVER CAMPAIGN, BUT WE BOTH BLOG EVERY DAY. SO WHO KNOWS.

I DID NOT GET A SUNBATH TODAY, BUT IT WAS JUST BEING STUBBORN ON MY PART. MOM TRIED FROM 9-10:30 AFTER WHICH IS WAS TIME TO GO ON THE WEEKLY GROCERY RUN. I DID GRAB THE PB COOKIE BAIT AFTER THEY LEFT THOUGH.

SOUNDS LIKE LEXI MIGHT HAVE A BETTER LIFE AHEAD AS LONG AS THE STUPID BOYFRIEND KEEPS OUT OF IT. HE SOUNDS LIKE A DRINKER, IS HE? MOM IS BASING HER JUDGEMENT ON HER EX-HUSBAND WHO WAS VERY MUCH LIKE YOUR DESCRIPTION OF THE BOY FRIEND. HARD TO BELIEVE MOM WAS EVER WITH ANYONE LIKE THAT, ISN'T IT? I WOULD HAVE ATTACKED HIM FOR SURE!!

  Hello SweetPepper~
I hope you are having a great day!! Still rainy and windy up here but the wind is not as bad today! Good thing cause lots of people lost power. There are tons of trees up here and a lot of them came down. Branches too. Mom's store was the only one with power so there were lots of people shopping there yesterday. They told mom that the line for the gas station was out on the street! They were the only ones in the whole town who had working gas pumps!
I'm busy munching on an apple while mom gets my notes done. Mom doesn't have to take anyone anywhere today so we spent the morning playing!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a hug!

I hope mom gets it resolved really soon. My mom is charging the battery in the camera this week, so it will be ready.
Mom got to the pool yesterday for an absolutely glorious summer day. Today it's supposed to thunder and rain, but it is looking good so far. Of course, this is Pittsburgh where the weather can change in 10 minutes. People around here can have the heat on in the morning, then the AC on for the afternoon, and umbrellas out for the evening.
We don't have a lot to write, hope you are having a great summer day and getting lots of cuddles and sunshine. Hugs, Falco

WE REALLY THINK THAT SINCE THE PAIN IS DIFFERENT FROM THE HEARTBURN PAIN, THAT YOUR MOM HAS GALLSTONES. IT WOULD BE WORTH IT TO GET IT CHECKED OUT TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE. SURE HOPE THAT THINGS CAN BE TAKEN CARE OF SO THAT YOUR MOM IS NOT IN PAIN. THAT IS WHAT WE KEEP PRAYING FOR.

IT WAS A GREY, DULL, RAINY, FOGGY AND CHILLY DAY HERE. IT WAS 59 WHEN MOM WENT TO THE FARMERS MARKET WITHOUT ME. SHE SAID IT WAS TOO COLD, AND I GUESS SHE WAS RIGHT ABOUT THAT. SHE EVEN HAD A LIGHT JACKET ON. IT IS PRETTY HUMID TOO, WHICH MAKES IT FEEL COLD. I WAS NOT TOO HAPPY THAT SHE DID NOT TAKE ME WITH HER. I FORGAVE HER THOUGH. I KNOW I WOULD NOT LIKE TO GET RAINED ON, UNLESS IT WAS REALLY WARM AND SUNNY OUT.

WE WERE BUMMED TODAY THAT AMERICAN PHAROAH DID NOT WIN HIS RACE, THE PACKERS HAVE 3 MORE INJURIES AND THE BREWERS CAME FROM BEHIND, TOOK THE LEAD AND THEN LOST THE GAME. KINDA SUMS UP THE DAY--DISMAL.

Sure hope your mom will have an easy fix for the pain!
Another pretty day here in the burgh thought the humidity is creeping up. I got a bath and a sun bath today again too. My light above my condo is on a timer so it comes on in the morning and goes off in the evening when it is time for my night night. Well the days are getting shorter already so I am ready for bed before that light goes out. Let me tell you once it goes out I leave out a noise so mom knows too LOL. I mean if I didn’t tell her she would never notice I don’t think,,,what that woman would do without me is hard to even imagine!

SO GLAD MY CAPS LOCK IS FINALLY WORKING. IT WOULD NOT DO ANYTHING WHEN I BLOGGED KACEY ABOUT THE LIST OF ALTERNATES. GOOD NEWS FOR HER! POLLY CAN'T BE SURE SHE WOULD BE ABLE TO ATTEND THE MILONGA, SO SHE HAS GIVEN UP ITSY. WHAT A GREYT PIG FOR KACEY. SHE IS VERY FAST. SINCE KACEY WAS SMART AND SIGNED UP QUICKLY SHE WILL DEFINITELY GET ITSY.

IT IS SOOOO HOT HERE! I DID GET OUT FOR MY SUNBATH AT 9:30, AND A GOOD THING TOO ALTHOUGH MOM TRICKED ME INTO THE CARRIER. I WAS STANDING ON THE EDGE OF THE CARRIER LOOKING AT THE PIECE OF COOKIE SHE PUT ON THE PERCH, AND WHEN I LEANED OVER SHE BUMPEDE BY BOTTOM AND IN I WENT AND DOWN WENT THE LID. PRETTY RUDE IF YOU ASK ME, BUT I DID ENJOY MY SUNBATH. AND DAD WAS WATCHING THE WEATHER REPORT ON TV AT 10:30, AND THEY WERE STILL SHOWING A FORECAST HIGH OF 94 ALTHOUGH IT WAS ALREADY 96 DEGREES! THEY DON'T CALL THEM WEATHER IDIOTS FOR NOTHING!

I SURE HOPE YOUR MOM GETS SOME RESOLUTION WHEN SHE SEES THE DOCTOR ON THE 4TH. I DON'T KNOW IF THEY CAN STRETCH THAT OPENING, BUT SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE. YOUR MOM NEEDS TO BE ABLE TO EAT AND ENJOY IT.

We hope mom gets some news soon about what's going on with her. It must have been nice for you and Kacey to see Lexi, then see her leave so you could have your house back.
This morning mom had a terrible time signing on to BC. It took at least a dozen tries from everywhere on the computer but we're here now!
We got a big surprise yesterday, thanks Uncle Chuck! Mom says they match the kitchen perfectly! And we love our new toys, too.
Well, Aunt Rose is on her way to meet us soon, and we know she's meeting lots of BC folks on the way here, too. It sounds like the ideal vacation to us.
It looks like a perfect summer day here, so we know where mom will be. At least for the afternoon, that is. Later on, she's ours. Tomorrow morning John comes to fix the wall for the backsplash and install the new floor. Mom told him to be here well before noon, so she can go to the pool, hahaha!
I hope you are having a great summer day with lots of good weather and cuddles, too. Hugs, Falco

The people are still in the house. We haven't closed yet. Had the 3 inspections done and all is well. We should be able to get in shortly after we close ... don't know when. The house has hurricane shutters and passed the hurricane inspection. Mom has the evac routes and where they can go with me. I will have a new vet, avian vet is 10 to 15 minutes away!
Another gloomy day with NO sun and rain tonight. It did get up to 72 but, didn't feel like it.
I will be off the internet on Saturday night. It's family re-union time.
I'm having lots of internet problems tonight.
Don't forget to cheer for American Pharoah on Saturday's Travers Stakes in Saratoga NY.

  Hi Sweetpepper
HAPPY TGIF DAY
vulture populations are plummeting in Africa
Africa's eight vulture species have declined in number by an average of 62 percent during the last 30 years. vultures are one of nature's most important scavengers—a flock can strip a carcass in a matter of minutes.these natural recyclers, which breed slowly and need years to mature, could be extinct in Africa in the next 50 to 100 years.

poisoning from eating pesticide-laced carcasses caused as many as 60 percent of the vulture deaths recorded since the 1970s.When a large predator such as a lion kills livestock, a farmer will sometimes sprinkle poison on the carcass to kill the predator in retaliation, Vultures usually get to the corpse first. They die after eating the pesticide-laced carcasses intended for lions and other predators. Pesticides are poorly regulated in Africa, and sold as "lion killer" . many farmers don't know what the chemicals are really used for.vultures have largely disappeared from commercial farming areas where pesticide are used

Vultures often collide with the wind turbines and are crushed or are electrocuted by power lines

Vultures are also also targets for poachers, who sell their parts to people who use witchcraft. The birds are known for their tremendous eyesight, and many believe their body parts can be used to see into the future.Their brains are ground to snuff by witch doctors who believe the substance has magical powers.

The scavengers also die after feeding on carcasses left behind by poachers. Illegal hunters poison the corpses to throw off law enforcement, which use circling vultures as a beacon for illegal activity.500 dead vultures were found surrounding a pesticide-laden elephant carcass poachers had poisoned leaving the bodies to rot. terrorists groups are profiting the most from poaching affording them lucrative profits to buy guns and bombs

  Hello SweetPepper~
I hope you had a wonderful day! We are very late getting notes out today. Mom took everyone to work this morning and then went to sleep for a while. We have been doing some chores and still have the kitchen to clean up. The dining room has to be mopped also since Jennifer dropped a coke on the floor!
How is your mom feeling today?? We hope her new way of eating is making eating pain free! We sure hope it all gets resolved very, very soon!
Stayed cloudy here all day but only a bit of rain. It is suppose to really storm tomorrow. mom is driving Jennifer down to visit her dad. He just got back from Florida so she is going to spend some time with him this weekend.
Dad will be home in the morning for another 34 hour break. He was delivering in Spokane and did some local work for them so he gets to spend the weekend with us.
Mom is working all weekend so they won't be going anywhere.

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
SOUNDS LIKE YOUR MOM AND GRANDPA CAN DEFINITELY SHARE THE SAME FOOD--AND WE SURE HOPE THAT YOUR MOM IS FEELING A LITTLE BETTER TODAY. AND THAT SHE GOT THRU TO THE DOCTORS OFFICE. THAT IS JUST BAD IF THEY DON'T ANSWER THE PHONE!

MOM TOOK LUNCH OVER TO KIM'S TODAY, AS KIM'S KNEE WAS NOT FEELING GOOD AT ALL. SHE HAS GOUT IN IT, AND IT IS FLARED UP SOME. SO THEY HAD A NICE LUNCH, AND THEN MOM CAME HOME. IT WAS GREY AND DISMAL, AND STARTING TO RAIN A BIT, SO MOM DECIDED AGAINST GOING TO THE STORE TODAY. SHE FIGURES SHE HAS MORE THAN ENOUGH TIME TO GO TO THE STORE! SHE WILL RUN TOMORROW TO PICK UP SOME STUFF, AND HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE WARM ENOUGH FOR ME TO GO WITH HER TO THE FARMER'S MARKET. WE ARE IN THE 60'S STILL, BUT WITH THE RAIN IT IS MORE HUMID OUT. AND GOING TO GET MORE OF THE SAME IF THE WEATHER GEEKS ARE RIGHT.

OTHER THAN THAT NOT MUCH IS GOING ON. NO FURTHER WORD ON OUR LION, SO IT MUST BE HIDING OUT AGAIN.

WING HUGS AND BEAKY KISSES TO YOU AND YOUR MOM, AND TO KACEY, TOO! TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOUR MOM, OKAY?

YOUR BUDDY,
KAJI

  Hi Sweetpepper
Sending prayers your mom feels better soon! Oh no never good to lose weight cause your sick.
Beautiful day here and I got a bath and a sunbath both. I saw a big bird in the sky but mom said it was a helicopter. LOL. There is a window above my play gym that sits right beside my condo. Mom has the window sill all cleaned off just for me …well it might be because of me LOL. I like to get up there in the morning when the sun is shining in after I eat my breakfast. I leave out little noises as I watch the wild birds and just to see the pretty day. Once the sun isn’t as bright I usually get on my play gym and begin the day with mom then helping her. “Our paths may change as life goes on but the bond between friends remain ever strong.” Left a vote for you my friend~ hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

WELL, I KNOW YOUR MOM IS NOT HAVING MUCH FUN EATING. TELL HER TO REMEMBER NOT TO EAT TOAST WITH THOSE POACHED EGGS. BREAD OF ANY KIND WAS ONE OF THE BIG NO NOS ON MOM'S POST-OP DIET, AND SINCE YOUR MOM'S PROBLEM IS THE OPENING OUT OF HER STOMACH IS TOO SMALL I THINK THE SAME THINGS WOULD BE OFF THE DIET LIST. SURE DO KNOW HOW SHE FEELS.

PUT UP AN ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE MILONGA AND CALENDAR PAGES ABOUT THE COUNTY FAIR NEXT MONTH. THE BIG POINT IS THE PIG RACES AND WHO WILL RIDE. ANY PREVIOUS RIDER CAN HAVE THEIR SAME PIG AGAIN, BUT THEY HAVE TO SIGN UP BY 9/3 TO QUALIFY. ANY PIGS UNCLAIMED WILL THEN BE AVAILABLE FOR NEW RIDERS. CHIPPER WANTED TO CHANGE HER PIG TO A VERY CUTE PIC SHE FOUND, BUT I TALKED TO AUNTIE DENISE. IF WE LET HER DO IT, WE WOULD HAVE TO LET EVERYBIRDY ELSE HAVE THE SAME OPTION. THAT WOULD LEAD TO TOTAL CHAOS!! SO NO GO. BESIDES ALTHOUGH HER NEW PIG WAS VERY CUTE, IT DIDN'T GO WITH THE OTHER PIGGIES.

AND SINCE WE HAVE NO CANDIDATE ON THE CALENDAR FOR NEXT MONTH'S BOTM RACE, IT IS OPEN SEASON! THAT MEANS ANYBIRDY WHO HAS NOT WORN THE CROWN IN THE PAST YEAR COULD WIN, SO IT COULD EASILY GO TO SOMEBIRDY WHO HAS ALREADY BEEN BOTM. I THINK IT WILL BE VERY INTERESTING TO SEE WHO ENDS UP WEARING THE CROWN.

IT IS 104 HERE TODAY, AND IT ENDED UP THAT HOT YESTERDAY TOO. NO SUNBATH, AND NEITHER MOM NOR I WANTED TO GO OUTSIDE AFTER THE GYM. SHE GETS HOME ABOUT 12:15, AND IT WAS ALREADY 98 THEN!!

  Hi Sweetpepper
We hope mom gets some news about what's happening with her. Hope also that Lexi had a fun vacation with all of you.
Today mom cleaned the avian nursery at the center. There were the usual suspects in there, pigeons, mourning doves, robins, sparrows, etc., but there were also some cool different birds; a couple of mockingbirds, a killdeer, a catbird, and a crow. It was a busy morning, and when she got home, it was warm enough to go to the pool, so that's where she spent the afternoon. Now she's ours for the rest of the day, YAY!
Still no word about the counter tops, and mom is really getting frustrated. She so hoped it would be done by now. John is coming to put the floor in and get the wall ready for the backsplash on Sunday, so that's some progress at least.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of good weather and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

Happy TGIF as they say, however all our days seem to run together, some times we have to look at our calendar to be reminded of what day it really is! We are praying all our friends in Florida will be spared any major destruction from Tropical Storm Erika (soon to be labeled as a Hurricane), we love our Florida friends! End your week on a positive note, give everybody a big hug and kiss for us, and give our love to all in your hugging circle, see you all tomorrow...

Friday love forever, Jenny & our Dallas family---(you are all very loved)

  Hey SweetPepper!
So sorry to hear about your moms problems. Hope there is something that they can do to help her feel better. Glad she can at least carefully eat. I know you are keeping good care of her. We will keep her and you in our prayers.
Sending warm hugs and healing prayers,
Raffikki and momma Erin

  Hi SweetPepper
No more snow so deep that you are stuck inside for days! No more double digits in the negative. Summer year around, here I come.
Not worried about hurricanes. We do have hurricane shutters. And we have to drive 16 miles to the ocean. So no worried about flooding.
We finally saw some sunshine today. It would have been a greyt day but mom said we were going to visit Dr McDonald to say goodbye. That was fine but then he trimmed my nails and wings!!! That was so unfair!
Hugs

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
GLAD YOUR MOM IS ABLE TO EAT SOMETHING, AND SURE HOPE THAT SHE GOT IN TOUCH WITH THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE. MOM HATES IT WHEN SHE TRIES TO GET IN TOUCH WITH SOMEONE AND THERE IS NO ANSWER OR ANY MESSAGE SAYING THAT THE PLACE IS CLOSED. THERE ARE A NUMBER OF BUSINESSES THAT DO THAT, TOO. HOPEFULLY WHATEVER THEY WANT TO DO DOESN'T INVOLVE ANY SURGERY.

I TAKE IT LEXI IS SPENDING TIME AT YOUR HOUSE? THOSE PIX OF HER WERE PRICELESS! THAT DOG KNOWS HOW TO CELEBRATE NATIONAL DOG DAY. LOVE THE THROW--PERFECT FOR ME TO TUNNEL IN. BUT NOT WITH HER IN IT, OF COURSE.

NICE DAY HERE, 73 FOR A HIGH. SO NICE TO HAVE THE PATIO DOORS OPEN AND NOT FREEZE! NO HEATER FOR ME TONIGHT, EITHER. WAY TOO EARLY FOR THAT STUFF! PLUS I HAVE MY FLEECE BLANKEY AND HANGING FLEECE TO SNUGGLE INTO IF I WANT.

JUST A NICE DAY WITH MOM. I LOVE IT!

TAKE CARE OF YOUR MOM, AND WING HUGS COMING YOUR WAY, AND HERS, AND KACEY'S!

  Hi Sweetpepper
We are sending get well prayers for your mom...sure hope she feels better soon!!

With company being here mom got a bit behind on the household chores so been trying to catch up again. Then she has been doing the spare room bedding and today she did hers. Of course that meant that dad had to help cause mom wanted the mattress flipped and sure cant do that by herself. Dad even helped to put the clean bedding on too and mom just kept quiet and glad he helped . By the time she washed and hung it all out she was tired and was thankful for the extra help. “Our paths may change as life goes on but the bond between friends remain ever strong.” Left a vote for you my friend~ hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

YOUR POOR MOM! I SURE HOPE THEY MANAGE TO FIX THINGS UP BEFORE THE NEXT ROUND OF APPOINTMENTS FOR G-PA AND G-MA BEGIN. THE MINESTRONE SOUP WAS PROBABLY TOMATO BASED, WASN'T IT? THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING TO STAY AWAY FROM. CREAM SOUPS ARE FATTENING, BUT MUCH EASIER ON THE TUMMY. CLAM CHOWDER AND CREAM OF MUSHROOM WERE WHAT MOM ATE, BUT THEN HER SURGERY WAS THIS SAME TIME OF YEAR SO SHE DIDN'T DO MUCH HOT SOUP. DAD MADE HER EAT IT LUKE WARM ANYWAY, WHICH IS NOT THE TASTIEST. MOM HAD ENSURE FOR BREAKFAST THIS MORNING, AND I SUSPECT IT WAS A SYMPATHY MEAL FOR YOUR MOM.

I DID GET OUT FOR MY SUNBATH THIS MORNING. MOM WORKED IT HARD BETWEEN A WALKABOUT AND STARING OUT THE SCREEN DOOR, AND THEN GETTING THAT PB COOKIE TOGETHER AND STANDING OVER THE CARRIER TO SHARE IT AND FINALLY ME WATCHING HER PUT THAT LAST LITTLE PIECE ON THE PERCH. I COULDN'T HELP MYSELF, I JUST HAD TO CLIMB IN TO GET IT. NEXT THING YOU KNOW THE LID IS CLOSED AND LATCHED, AND WE ARE ON OUR WAY OUTSIDE! AT 9:30 IT WAS ALREADY SO WARM MOM WENT RIGHT INTO THE SHADE, AND WE ONLY STAYED FOR 30 MINUTES. IT IS SUPPOSED TO HIT 96 TODAY, AND IT WAS ALREADY 92 AT 11.

MOM GOES FOR HER ARTHRITIS MASSAGE TODAY, AND THEN AFTERWARDS IT IS ALL MY TIME! OF COURSE, MOM HAS TO DO LAUNDRY, BUT SHE WILL WAIT UNTIL IT COOLS DOWN A LITTLE MORE AND BESIDES THAT SAVES ENERGY. WE ARE ON ENERGY ALERT BECAUSE OF THE HEAT.

  Hello SweetPepper~~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still very pretty here and only in the 80's. Rain is suppose to come back for the weekend and we sure could use it! We are not use to being so dry for so long. Everything is yellow and I want it to be green again!
We are getting laundry done today. Mom has to work tonight but she'll have Friday night off. She is going to the library later to get me more story books and she will see what movies they have in. Friday movie night is my favorite! Even if the movie isn't good I'll still have popcorn!
Mom and I both hope your mom is feeling better today. Does she have those instant breakfast mixes? At least she can get some nutrition from them. It has to be just awful!! Make sure she knows we are thinking about her and want her to be feeling wonderful very soon!
Enjoy the day and I hope you get to do lots of fun things!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Sweetpepper
I'm so sorry mom didn't get any help there. Maybe her doctor will have a solution for her which doesn't involve surgery. We are praying for her recovery, though, whatever happens.
There's not much to report on today. Mom went to the gym and swam indoors again yesterday, since it never got out of the 60s here. Today she is getting a haircut, then later going out to dinner with her sister.
No news on the kitchen: the floor isn't in yet, and neither are the counter tops, so the tile isn't in place yet either. It's still taking up residence on the dining room table.
I hope you are having a fun day, getting in some summer sunshine and lots of love. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.
