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..

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
WELL. I AM HAPPY THAT EVIL CEILING FAN IS NOT GOING TO BE STARING AT ME! I DON'T FLY, BUT I HATE THINGS THAT ARE HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS HANGING IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE. WHEN THE PUT UP THE DIFFERENT LIGHT FIXTURE YEARS AGO, I REALLY DID NOT LIKE IT MUCH. I STILL DON'T. NOW I HAVE TO DEAL WITH ANOTHER ONE. UGH.

GUESS WE GET SNOW--THEY SAY A COUPLE INCHES, BUT SURE HAVE NO IDEA IF THEY WILL BE RIGHT OR WRONG. MOM AND I WILL WATCH UNTIL IT IS TIME TO GO TO GRANDPA'S, WHICH SHE WILL DO UNLESS IT IS SO BAD THAT SHE STAYS HOME.

NOT MUCH ELSE GOING ON HERE. JUST A NICE DAY WITH MOM. HOPE YOURS WAS JUST AS SWEET!

Thanks for the information about you tube. Mom will tell her sister though she doesnt have cancer of the throat but would still be interesting to her maybe.
I almost fell into the wastebasket today! Mom set me on it to do my hurry up and I I didn’t get my foot on just right and almost fell in. Mom put out her hand and caught me and I grabbed on. At least the basket was empty but it’s a long way to the bottom!! “I made myself a snowball as perfect as could be. I thought I’d keep it as a pet. I made it pajamas and a pillow for its head. Then last night it ran away but first…it wet the bed.“ V4U. Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

WE DIDN'T THE WARM TEMPS THEY WERE PREDICTING EITHER. OR RATHER IT IS WARM OUT THERE, BUT THERE IS A CHILLY BREEZE BLOWING SO MOM KEPT ME INSIDE TODAY.

SHE IS GOING TO A PARTY TODAY AT 5 FOR HER FRIEND'S DAUGHTER WHO TURNED 15. THEY ARE MEXICAN, SO IT IS A QUINCEANERA AND A VERY BIG DEAL. DAD SAYS THERE WILL BE LOTS OF HOMEMADE MEXICAN FOOD THERE, SINCE THAT IS TRADITIONAL. MOM IS LOOKING FORWARD TO IT. HER FRIEND IS A ZUMBA BUDDY, AND MOM WILL BE SITTING AT THE "ZUMBA TABLE". SHOULD BE FUN.

MEANWHILE I AM OFF THE HOOK AGAIN TODAY FOR A NAIL TRIM BECAUSE OF THAT PARTY. I AM ALWAYS TRAMATIZED AFTER AND ONLY WANT TO SIT ON MY MOM'S SHOULDER EVEN IF IT IS JENNIFER DOING THE TRIM. MOM DOESN'T WANT TO GO OFF AND LEAVE ME LIKE THAT. NOW I AM JUST HOPING JENNIFER IS OFF TOMORROW!!

Holy wow, our BC friends all along the Eastern seaboard are really getting blasted with ice and snow, according to what we were watching on the Today Show National Weather reports! I guess every once in awhile the guessers get it right! We are convinced that the whole group of them sit around some bar during Happy Hour and flip coins to determine our weather! We have very little planned for our day, simply more together time, our favorite! Enjoy your Saturday to the fullest, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

  Hi Sweetpepper
The wildlife center is volunteer work, the museum is paid.
Mom heard from Aunt Jane via email last night. They are having lots of 80 degree days, and getting sun. Chyna has made friends with an egret who hangs by the pool at the house they're renting.
It snowed here overnight, so mom shoveled the driveway and front walk. She wouldn't have done it so soon, but she has to work at the museum today. (It's supposed to snow again later and overnight.) It's FROZEN day at the museum, as well as another Ask the Scientist day, so mom is anticipating the place will be crawling with Olafs, Svens, Anyas, and Elsas, as well as cavorting reindeer, etc. The scientists will set up on the first floor, and mom will be on the third, with a Polar World cart and artifacts from the frozen north. On the way home she needs to stop for more broccoli and grapes, so I don't starve. We have lots of fruits and veggies, but I'm a picky eater! Hope you are having a great day filled with cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  HI SWEETPEPPER
MOM PICKED UP THE HARRISONS PELLETS AND A FEW LIGHT THINGS AT THE GROCERY STORE. THEN SHE CAME HOME AND DID A BIG LOAD OF LANDRY. THIS MIGHT NOT SEEM LIKE MUCH BUT IT IS WHEN YOU ARE IN PIN AND ITS THE FIRST DAY YOU ARE OUT OF BED. MOMS BACK WAS ACHING AND SHE WAS GOING TO LAY DOWN WHEN DAD GOT SOME SORT OF VIRUS ON HIS COMPUTR AND STARTED YELLING TO MOM FOR HELP. MOM TOLD HIM TO TURN OFF THE COMPUTER AND CALL COMCAST. COMCAST SEURITY TOLD DAD NOT TO TURN ON HIS COMPUTER BUT USE MOMS COMPUTER SO THEY COULD INSTALL A ANTI VIRUS SOFTWARE ON HIS COMPUTER TO STOP THE VIRUS. MOM SAT THERE FOR 2HOURS WHILE DAD WOULDNT QUIT TALKING WHEN COMCAST WAS TELLING MOM WHAT TO DO. MOM HAD HER PHONE ON SPEAKER PHONE AND WHEN DAD WALKED INTO MOMS ROOM AND SAW SHE WASNT HOLDING THE PHONE HE STARTED YELLING AND MOM SAID SHE DIDNT HAVE TO HOLD THE HPHONE IT WAS ON SPEAKER PHONE SO DAD PICKED UP THE PHONE AND STARTED TALKING WITH THE SPEAKER PHONE ON AND NO ONE COULD UNDERSTAND HIM AND MOM GET TELLING DAD TO BE QUIET SO SHE COULD HEAR THE MAN FROM INDIA TELLING HER WHAT SHE SHOULD DO. DAD KEPT TELLING MOM NOT TO TELL HIM TO BE QUIET. IT JUST WENT ON AND ON. DAD IS NOT SUPPOSE TO TURN ON HIS COMPUTER UNTIL THE COMPUTER TECH NERD COMES ON MONDAY TO CLEAN IT. DAD DIDNT LISTEN AND MOM COUD HEAR DAD YELLING TO COMCAST ALL EVENING AND WHEN DAD WENT TO TELL MOM ABOUT IT SHE SAID SHE DIDNT WANT TO HEAR ANYMORE SO DAD IS MAD AT HER. AT LEAST HIS COMPUTER IS OFF. MOM WOULD LIKE TO GO TO SOME ISLAND FAR AWAY WHERE NO ONE IS YELLING AT HER AND HER BACK DOESNT HURT BECAUSE SHE IS LAYING IN THE SUN.

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
IT WAS OKAY OUT TODAY BUT STILL A BIT NIPPY. MOM WAS IN MEETINGS FOR MOST OF THE DAY. SHE HAS A TON OF WORK TO CATCH UP ON, AS SHE HAD MEETINGS YESTERDAY AND TODAY, AND THERE IS NEVER ENOUGH TIME TO ACTUALLY DO ALL THE THINGS SHE NEEDS TO DO. AND SHE DOESN'T WANT TO WORK OVERTIME. BUT SHE WILL TACK ON SOME HOURS ON MONDAY IF SHE WORKS OVER THE WEEKEND, WHICH SHE MIGHT HAVE TO DO TO GET EVERYTHING UPDATED. UGH.

SHE IS HOME WITH ME ON MONDAY CUZ THEY ARE COMING TO PUT IN NEW LIGHT FIXTURES. LUCKY FOR ME MOM ASKED IF THEY COULD LEAVE THE CHANDELIER IN PLACE AND NOT PUT UP A CEILING FAN WITH NEW LIGHTS. THE THING IS RIGHT IN MY LINE OF VISION AND WHEN I AM IN MY HOUSE, THERE IS NO ESCAPING IT. MOM WAS THINKING I WOULD FREAK OUT SEEING IT ALL DAY. AND I THINK SHE IS RIGHT. SO THEY WON'T PUT IT UP. IT WILL BE BAD ENOUGH FOR THE NEW CEILING LIGHT IN THE KITCHEN. AND WHO KNOWS WHAT THE BATHROOM ONE WILL DO! BUT AT LEAST I WILL HAVE MOM HOME WITH ME WHEN I SEE THE OTHER TWO.

HOPE YOU ARE GETTING LOTS OF GOOD MOM TIME.

  Hello SweetPepper~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Mom spent way too much time running around today and I didn't like it at all. Everyone else had to go to work and all at different times. Dad was going to leave early but they changed his pick up time. He was gone for an hour and a half this morning and told mom he was going to get some groceries for the truck. He never made it so mom took him to the market before she took him to the truck! Just crazy today and it didn't seem like a day off for mom at all!
The good news is that the NFL said that Taima can lead the Seahawks out of the tunnel for the Superbowl! YAY! I don't know what the Seahawks would do without him! He is a very important member of the team! Even people who don't like the Seahawks have to admit that Taima is the coolest mascot in the entire NFL!
Dad tried putting the old phone, that went through the washer, in a bag of rice to see if it would dry out that way but so far it still won't turn on. I don't suppose it matters now since he has the new one.
I hope your evening is a relaxing one! Mom and I certainly plan on one!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Sweetpepper
That is neat how Gpa was fixed up after the cancer in his throat!! Thanks for explaining it all to us and very interesting too.
When mom went to the store she looked for a papaya and found them at this other store. The store she usually goes to didn’t have them there the last time. Mom picked the smaller one and boy is it ever good and ripe and really sweet tasting too. The calendar page says January is papaya month and that sure is right! “I made myself a snowball as perfect as could be. I thought I’d keep it as a pet. I made it pajamas and a pillow for its head. Then last night it ran away but first…it wet the bed.“ V4U. Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Sweetpepper
Mom is at the center 2 days a week, and at the museum when they need her, right now one or 2 days a week. She's been working on her instructional unit though, so has been at the museum a little more often this week. She has to teach the new docent class about animal adaptations.
Today mom had a trainee at the center. They did the outdoor (big) squirrel pen in the back, rather than the squirrel porch. That was good, it gave the trainee and mom experience in navigating snow and ice to get to the animals. They had to go back to the building for more blankets and towels too, since there were more carriers back there than mom anticipated. She figured with 6 squirrels, probably 3 carriers, but there were 7 in there!
They also cleaned the recovery room, which has 3 snapping turtles, 3 box turtles, a cooper's hawk and a red tailed hawk recovering right now. The poor Cooper's hawk seems to have a head injury and his wing was wrapped. The staff took him down to the shelter to get an xray, but mom doesn't know how that turned out, since she left before they got back.
I think mom is with us the rest of the day, YAY! I hope you are getting lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Sweetpepper & Kacey
Hello Adventurers. As we draw close to Manuas, Brazil, we must be watchful for both human threats and the ever present threat from wildlife both on land and aquatic. Although the Hippo is an African animal, there are now over 50 individuals and counting living happily along the Amazon and other South American Rivers. In the late 1980s, Pablo Escobar kept four hippos in a private menagerie at his residence in Hacienda Nápoles, 100 km east of Medellín, Colombia, after buying them in New Orleans. They were deemed too difficult to seize and move after Escobar's fall, and hence left on the untended estate. By 2007, the animals had multiplied to 16 and had taken to roaming the area for food in the nearby Magdalena River. In 2009, two adults and one calf escaped the herd and, after attacking humans and killing cattle, one of the adults (called "Pepe") was killed by hunters under authorization of the local authorities. As of early 2014, 50 hippos have been reported to exist on the Amazon and it's tributaries.
With Mick Dundee departure after enjoying BB's lunch, the birds begin to wonder how they would get past the Hippos ahead in the River. Amando, Jenny-Lynn and Sky sit close, deep in discussion trying to figure out the safest way past the upcoming danger.
"I think we simply paddle by, staying as far away from them as we can. If we take one boat past at a time it shouldn't disturb them overly" Jenny-Lynn adds, worry on her face
"But if they do attack the boat and it is alone we might not be able to get there in time to help them." Sky adds
"I think we stay close together." Amando replies after some thought, " we paddle as little as we have to, let the river move us by"
"It might be best if we separate and place guards in each boat while passing the hippo pod." Jenny-Lynn directs
Sky and Amando agree, and set about moving guard birds into each boat. The nervous Adventures load their boats, and pushing off from shore, slowly paddle towards possible danger lurking the the River ahead. Finny and Chipper had reported back that the hippos were resting near the west bank of the river in shallow water. The birds move their boats towards the eastern shore, paddling carefully, ever watchful for danger. Rounding a sharp curve in the River near Manuas, JL in the lead boat with Sugar, Cookie, Raffi, Peepers, Laka, Strawberry and RT spots the first group of hippos. Resting submerged below the murky Amazon waters, just their heads exposed. Pointing she let's out a shrill whistle to inform the others that danger was ahead of them. JL directs her companions to stop paddling, and allows the boat to move slowly along pulled by the current of the water. Sky and Kaji's boats pass by the hippos without incident. Next boat to pass is LA and Dixie's group, guarded by Cappy. As Cappy instructs his friends to stop paddling, one huge male Hippo opens his mouth and lets out an angry roar. His sudden call rouses the others in the pod.

Mom forgets what her sister takes but its not the name you said. Moms sister thought they could only stretch the throat so many times but maybe that isnt right either or has changed with time.
The grands dad is coach for her softball team and the grand is a pitcher and pitches quite fast and hard. She also takes pitching lessons. Last night as the team was all practicing and the grand was pitching to her dad he looked away and when he looked back the ball smacked him in the nose. Lots of blood everywhere and the grand was quite upset she hurt her dad too. Finally got the bleeding stopped but the nose is quite swollen and hoping its not broken. Its been a busy 2015 already and to think it only started! “I made myself a snowball as perfect as could be. I thought I’d keep it as a pet. I made it pajamas and a pillow for its head.

I hope you guys are having a great day! It's been boring around here but that is just fine with me. Mom worked last night and now we have our weekend again! I think she should take 3 days off every week!!
Dad washed his $300 Galaxy phone in the washing machine last night! Guess what? It doesn't work anymore!hahahahaha He is a bigger dork than mom is and that's saying something! He really can't function without his phone. It's a very sad, sad thing!hehehehehehe
He went by Costco and got another one. Let's hope he doesn't wash this one! He got the warranty on it but I do not think it will cover things done to it by dumb users!

  Hi Sweetpepper & Kacey
Hello fellow Amazon Adventurers. I was sure glad to see that Ms BB had welcomed her pal to join us for a part of our trip up the River. She musta known we were going to run into some nasty company along the way. Nothing worse then Crocs or gators for rocking the boat so to speak. Thankfully we had warning from Finny and the Green Angels. With BB's shuttle always on the ready she was able to have her friend Mick from Australia join us . He has a nickname of Crocodile Dundee. Mick stepped up on the bow of the long boat so the crocs could see him better. When they did they all headed for the bottom of the river & stayed there. They didn't want to be made into boots,belts,hats or luggage!!! I sorta feel sorry for them after Cappy and Little Angel got done with them.
"OK, enough with the green gator guys, Ok Crocs. Let me at' em. I'll show them a thing or five. I'll bite their noses, sparkle their tails and then......"Li
"il Angel yells at the crocs as they swim around the boats. "Oh you don't wanta wake the baby.
Too late....LOOK OUT CROC HERE I COMEEEEEEEEEEE." Little Angel grabs an oar and whacks the croc on the nose hard making tears come to his eyes.
Little Angel" Sky yells, "Stop hurting the Crocs, you're making them cry. OH no not that." He watches as she grabs one by the tail and bites down as hard as she can, "and trust me that's hard."
"Little Angel, I thought I told you be good?" Amando looks at her and can't help but grin as he watches the neon sparkled crocs swimming away in shame, that a little girl bird beat them up.
Everybirdie laughs as the crocs disappear. Then little Angel turns to see Mick standing on Ms BB's boat. She grins sheepishly and giggles. "Way ta go mate" Mick calls to her making LA happy.
"Whew! That was a close one! Thankfully, LA, Cappy and Ms. BB took care of those nasty crocs! Good grief! What will we encounter next?? Oh, oh....my Green Angels just informed me that there are some hippos up the river. Just what we need! Do be careful. Hippos are even more dangerous than crocs. We have to find baby Armando's Momma and get him home before anything else happens. I'm off to check on the hippo situation and really search for Armando's Momma. " Finny waves his good-bye as he heads off up-river to re-join the Green Angels as they gather information about the hippos.
Heading into shore, tie off their boats and relax. Its lunch time so Ms BB sets up her portable kitchen." How about deep fried gator bites, corn dogs and deep fried pickles?
I have been told by Mr Mick Dundee the gator bites taste like chicken. " Picabo makes a face at the thought of Gator bites. Boo Boo yells, " Bring'em on!"
"Then we can sneak past those Hippos and continue our hunt for the baby"s Mom & Dad."
As BB and the girls cook lunch, the boys bring out some maps and check for possible nesting sites ahead. As they look over the map Willie points to a treed area, "LOOK! A nesting area of Amazon species"

ISN'T IT THE BEST FUN TO THROW THINGS OUT OF DESK DRAWERS? I HAVE NEVER MANAGED TO REPEAT IT, BUT I DID GET A HIGHLIGHTER ONCE BEFORE MOM NOTICED. NO LUCK SINCE THEN. I AM VERY IMPRESSED BY YOUR PROWES. HOW UNFAIR OF YOUR MOM TO MOVE YOU TO YOUR PLAYGYM, BUT AT LEAST YOU HAVE TOYS THERE TO BITE.

MOM REMEMBERS THE PATS BEING CAUGHT CHEATING SEVERAL YEARS AGO, AND THEY WERE FINED. SOMETHING ABOUT USING ILLEGAL METHODS TO SPY ON THE OTHER TEAM. WONDER WHAT WILL HAPPEN THIS TIME IF THEY ARE GUILTY AND IT IS PROVEN.

MOM DOESN'T GO BACK TO HER GI DOC UNTIL MAY OR SO. SHE DOESN'T REMEMBER EXACTLY, BUT THEY WILL CALL AND REMIND HER WHEN IT IS TIME. AND THE ONCOLOGIST FOR HER BREAST IS ONCE A YEAR NOW AS WELL AS THE MAMMOGRAMS. SO I GUESS OUR SKIN FAMILIES ARE COMING RIGHT ALONG. OF COURSE, DAD NEVER GOT HIS FOLLOW-UP CT SCANS AFTER THE 1ST YEAR, BUT HE IS STUBBORN THAT WAY. HE SAYS IF THE CANCER COMES BACK HE WILL NOT GO THRU ANOTHER SURGERY OR CHEMO. SO HOPEFULLY IT NEVER WILL.

I GOT A NICE SUNBATH ONCE MOM FINISHED WITH THE NASTY SUCKING MACHINE AND CLEANING THE KITCHEN. I DO NOT HOUSEWORK THURSDAYS, BUT AT LEAST IT IS DONE FOR NOW EXCEPT FOR THE LAUNDRY FOR THE COVERS IN THE LIVING ROOM. THE REST OF THE DAY IS MINE, AND I GOT ANOTHER REPRIEVE FROM NAIL TRIMMING. MOM CALLED TO MAKE SURE JENNIFER WAS WORKING, AND SHE IS OUT SICK WITH THE SAME THING MY MOM HAD! MOM IS GOING TO CALL BACK ON SATURDAY TO SEE IF SHE IS BACK YET, SINCE SHE WON'T LET ANYONE ELSE TOUCH ME. MEANWHILE EVERY TIME I CLIMB ON MOM IT SCRATCHES, BECAUSE I GOT SOME REALLY SHARP NAILS!!!

  Hi Sweetpepper
They are 2 separate entities. The wildlife center is a hospital for sick, injured, or orphaned wild animals. They are patients there, until they can be released. Some of them live there, though, because they can't be released, due to some permanent injury or something. The museum is about a half hour drive away from here, and it's part of the Carnegie Institutes. Mom volunteers her time at the center to help animals, and she goes to the museum to lead tours of the exhibits.
We saw a bit of a warm up today, but the driveway is still icy in spots. Mom salted it this morning before she went to the museum. She had a tour with Kindergarten kids today. The teacher in charge told mom that she remembered her from last year! Of course, K kids are like herding cats, but it was okay, only one tour today.
Mom is thinking of going to Barnes and Noble to renew her membership, but it depends on what time we're done with our blogs. We let mom know our priorities. If she doesn't get there today, she'll make it tomorrow, for sure. Tonight is cleaning the cages night, so we all have to be ready to rearrange things once mom has finished disrupting our beautiful work.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of warm cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi SP
Mom is trying to do too much. She got her new humidifier the other day and came home exhausted. Then yesterday she had to make another trip into town. Two days of silent votes... and no computer time for me. Today we are back on track. She went to bed early and woke up with the sun. It looks to be a good day, but very cold again. We will have her all to ourselves in the bird room, with the promise of an afternoon movie and some snuggles. See you tomorrow... hugs from TiPaul

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
TODAY WAS A NICE, GAS FREE DAY AT WORK FOR MOM. THANK HEAVENS! IT WAS NOT THE FIRST TIME, SO SHE HOPES THAT IT DOESN'T KEEP HAPPENING, WHICH IS WHY SHE SAID SOMETHING TO HER BOSS. NOT THAT HE COULD DO ANYTHING BUT HE MIGHT HAVE MENTIONED IT TO WHOMEVER THE BOSS IS OF THE PERSON.

HAD SOME SNOW TODAY, NOT MUCH. IT WAS NOT BAD DRIVING IN TO WORK, EITHER. AT LEAST THE ROADS WERE WET AND NOT SLIPPERY. GUESS WE HAVE SOME MORE COMING MAYBE ON SUNDAY. I KNOW WE ARE GONNA GET A MAJOR STORM ONE OF THESE WEEKS. UGH.

NOT MUCH ELSE GOING ON. TIME TO HIT THE PERCH. HOPE YOUR MOM'S LEG FEELS BETTER SOON. SENDING YOUR MOM GOOD THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS THAT IT DOES.

WING HUGS TO YA!

Moms sister has to get her throat stretched every once in a while too and has trouble swallowing food before she gets it done. Moms mom had that same trouble too.
It snowed again during the night and then again this morning. Mom had a chiropractor appointment and was undecided about going due to the weather. She ended up she did go though once the salt trucks and plow went through. Then the parronts left together and left me alone while they went to eat and shop and see a movie. I sure was glad when they got home again. “I made myself a snowball as perfect as could be. I thought I’d keep it as a pet. I made it pajamas and a pillow for its head. Then last night it ran away but first…it wet the bed.“ V4U. Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

WELL, IF THEY DO THE INQUIRY INTO THE FOOTBALLS USED IN THE AFC GAME (DON'T SEE HOW THEY WILL SO MUCH AFTER THE FACT), WHAT HAPPENS IF THEY DETERMINE IT REALLY HAPPENED? DO THEY PLAY THE GAME OVER? IS IT A FORFEIT? HAVE YOU HEARD ANYTHING ABOUT THAT?

MOM IS STILL A LITTLE SORE FROM THE LEGS DAY THAT BECKY DID ON SUNDAY. SILLY MOM ASKED FOR IT, BECAUSE SHE HER LEGS ARE USUALLY STRONG ENOUGH THAT SHE HAS NO SORE MUSCLES. HOWEVER AFTER A WEEK OF BEING SICK AND NO ZUMBA OR WORKOUTS, SHE REALLY PAID FOR IT. BY THE END OF TONIGHT'S WORK OUT AND ZUMBA SHE FIGURES SHE WILL BE ALL STRETCHED OUT AND GOOD AGAIN.

I DID GET A SUNBATH TODAY, AND IT WAS A GREYT ONE. IT WAS 72 IN SIMI VALLEY TODAY, AND SINCE WE WERE OUT THERE AT NOON WE GOT THE WARMTH AND THE SUN. KINDA WEIRD, BECAUSE IT WAS REALLY FOGGY FIRST THING THIS MORNING, THEN IT BURNT OFF AND TURNED INTO A BEAUTIFUL DAY.

AND NOW I AM DICTATING FROM MOM'S CHAIR, BUT I KEEP OPENING THE DESK DRAWER BECAUSE THERE ARE ALL SORTS OF NEAT THINGS IN THERE LIKE PAPER CLIPS AND HIGHLIGHTERS. MOM KEEPS CLOSING THE DRAWER, AND IT IS REALLY STARTING TO AGGRAVATE ME. DOESN'T SHE KNOW THAT STUFF WILL LOOK MUCH BETTER ON THE FLOOR?

  Hi my dear SP, from your friend Jenny Lynn
We are in for one more day of overcast, but our temps will be very moderate, in the high thirties and lower forties for at least the next week, that is very do-able! Dad has a VA appointment at the QC Prosthetics place to get some new diabetic shoes and compression stockings, but that won't take to long, hopefully! Happy hump day my dear friends, be good for your mom & dad, and don't forget to love each other! Give our love to all the happy souls in your loving home, see ya tomorrow...

Love ya forever, Jenny & our Dallas group

  Hi Sweetpepper
The wildlife center doesn't have any collections, it's the museum with all that stuff. The center just houses patients, and those animals that can't be released.
Today mom was going to go out to the National Aviary with a friend, but it's snowing again. It's mostly a very damp, slushy kind of snow, but that could go either way. If it gets colder it will freeze and be dangerous. If it gets warmer, it will melt. Mom didn't want to chance the former, so she called her friend and canceled for today. They will have other times to go see the baby penguins. They hatched a while ago, and the parents raised them so far. They were taken from the parents and put on display of sorts over the weekend. (It's the time they would normally leave the nest, though.) They are in the viewing window of the infirmary, being hand raised for a couple of months, so they will be good education ambassadors.
In March, the aviary will add some immature birds of Paradise, and we'll get to see them grow into their adult feathers. That should be exciting.
Anyway mom is all ours for today, since she isn't going out anytime soon. I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of warm cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
IT WAS A GREY DAY HERE TODAY. WE GOT SOME SLEETY STUFF. MOM DROVE THE CITY STREETS CUZ THE TRAFFIC REPORT SAID THAT THERE WAS AN ACCIDENT EASTBOUND WHICH IS THE WAY MOM GOES TO WORK. SHE DID NOT HEAR WHERE, SO SHE DECIDED TO TAKE THE STREETS TO WORK. WE WERE LUCKY THERE WAS NO SNOW, BUT THAT IS SUPPOSED TO COME TONIGHT. NOT MUCH, BUT ENOUGH TO MAKE THE DRIVE IN TOMORROW YUCKY.

MOM SAYS THAT SHE LIKES HER NEW DESK LOCATION--BUT SOMEONE WHO WORKS IN THE AREA SHE DOES IS UM, FARTING SILENTLY. AND NOT JUST ONE TIME. 3 TIMES. MOM LITERALLY HAD TO GET UP AND MOVE IT WAS SO AWFUL. IF SOMEONE HAS GAS THAT BAD...DON'T THEY KNOW IF THEY LET IT OUT, IT CAN SMELL BAD? WOULDN'T THEY GO TO THE RESTROOM? MOM IS BESIDE HERSELF. HOW DO YOU GO UP TO SOMEONE YOU DON'T KNOW AND SAY THAT YOU ARE GASSING ME OUT? IT IS FUNNY TO WRITE. BUT IS SURE IS NOT FUN TO SMELL! MOM MIGHT HAVE TO GET SOME AIR NEUTRALIZER SPRAY, SHE THINKS. WHEN SHE GETS BOMBED, SHE SPRAYS THE STUFF. I TOLD HER TO TAKE ME WITH HER AND I CAN DROP A PRESENT ON THE GUY WHEN HE PASSES GAS. WHAT DO YOU THINK?

OFF TO GET A HEAD SCRITCH, SO WISH YOU A HAPPY TOOSDAY!

  Hi Sweetpepper
Aww yea that sweeper makes me dunk in my water bowl too and flap my wings and do silly things mom says.
This morning mom was up early and hurrying around I knew something was up. Pretty soon she said she had to take her DIL to the doctors and was hoping to get some groceries on the way home. Guess that is what she did too cause she had bags that dad helped carry in. It was snowing hard when mom got home and she looked like she was very happy to be home again and I was glad she was home too! “I made myself a snowball as perfect as could be. I thought I’d keep it as a pet. I made it pajamas and a pillow for its head. Then last night it ran away but first…it wet the bed.“ V4U. Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

WELL, MY MOM AND I HAD NOT HEARD ABOUT THE INFLATION QUESTION ON THE PATS FOOTBALLS, BUT SINCE THE REASON MOM DOESN'T LIKE THAT TEAM IS BECAUSE THEY WERE CAUGHT CHEATING A FEW YEARS AGO (AND TOM BRADY IS A PRIMADONNA) SHE HAS TO WONDER IF MAYBE IT IS TRUE. IS THERE ANY WAY THEY CAN CHECK IT OUT NOW? I DON'T SEE HOW.

WELL, MOM AND DAD DECIDED BEFORE THE REPAIRMAN GOT HERE THAT IF IT WAS GOING TO BE $400 OR MORE, THEY WOULD GO WITH A NEW FRIDGE SINCE THIS ONE IS 20 YEARS OLD. WELL, HE CHECKED IT OUT AND IT WAS GOING TO BE $375, SO THEY BOTH VOTED FOR A NEW UNIT. THEN AFTER HE LEFT DAD REALIZED HE TOTALLY FORGOT TO MENTION THE LEAK AT THE BACK OF THE ICE MAKER, SO IT WOULD HAVE BEEN EVEN MORE MONEY TO FIX IT. PLUS HE GAVE THEM A $100 COUPON TOWARDS A NEW FRIDGE WHICH COVERED THE COST OF HIS VISIT. SO THEY ARE PLEASED. THEY WILL WATCH THE SALES, BUT THEY PLAN ON BUYING PRESIDENT'S DAY, BECAUSE THERE ARE ALWAYS BIG SALES THEN. WE GET ALL OF OUR MAJOR APPLIANCES FROM SEARS AND BUY KENMORE. WE LIKE THEIR PRODUCTS AND SERVICE A LOT.

I DIDN'T GET A SUNBATH TODAY, BECAUSE IT IS CLOUDY OUT THERE AND ONLY IN THE UPPER 60s. BALMY FOR YOU, BUT NOT WARM ENOUGH FOR THIS BOY TO GET OUTSIDE. I DID GET TO SHARE MOM'S LUNCH, BUT SHE TRICKED ME! SHE FIXED A PLATE WITH A CHICKEN THIGH LEFT OVER FROM DINNER LAST NIGHT AND A BUNCH OF SPINACH. BEFORE I REALIZED WHAT I HAD DONE, I ATE SOME OF THAT GREEN STUFF! YIKES! MAJOR TRAUMA, BUT I RECOVERED WHEN MOM GAVE ME THE THIGH BONE TO BEAK ON.

  Hi Sweetpepper
Last night's dinner was not for mom's birthday, it was for her daughter and Anna, her granddaughter.
Lena made a good dinner last night for everyone, and both birthday girls were happy with their meal and gifts.
Today mom attended a docent meeting and learned a new fact about the museum: they house 22million collections! That's not 22million artifacts, but whole collections. Isn't that amazing? It's not the Smithsonian, but it's still a big place!
After the meeting, mom went to get her nails done, finally. While she was at the salon, it snowed like crazy! We were supposed to get scattered flurries today, but that's not what happened. Instead it was a steady shower of snow for a couple of hours. When she got back home, mom had to shovel the driveway before she could pull into the garage. It slants downhill, so when it snows, mom is always afraid she'll slide into the house or something. Anyway, we're finally online, but not for long. It's late, and mom wants to make sure we get our second meal in a timely way.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Sweetpepper & Kacey
Good morning Amazon Adventurers time to rise and shine! Amando calls out happily as he wakes his sleeping friends. " It's once more time to load our long-boats and move further in-land on our search for baby Armando's Momma and flock." The sleepy eyed BC Adventurers yawn and climb off their sleeping perches, waking to the smells of Ms BB's fresh brewed coffee and the warmth of the Brazilian sun falling softly on their faces. Eating a quick breakfast the travelers ready their boats, pushing off from shore, determined to make Santarem by late afternoon.
Santarém (Portuguese pronunciation: [s?~ta'??j]) is a municipality in the state of Pará in Brazil. The Tapajós joins the Amazon River there, and it is a popular location for tourism. It is the second most important city in the state and the financial and economic center of the western part of the state. It was once home to the Tapajós Indians, a tribe of Native Americans after which the river was named, It is located some 800 km (500 mi) from both the largest cities in the Amazon, Manaus, and the state capital Belém. It has a population of 300,000.
Pushing out into the Amazon River, the group paddles through the early morning without incident. Suddenly Finny and the Green Angels arrive, landing on the helms of the boats. "Amando,
just wanted to warn you guys to be careful up ahead. There are some crocs sunning themselves up the river. You never know if they'll take off after a boat or not, so be on the lookout and be very careful with little Armando." With that they were off again, scouting ahead for danger and Armando's Momma.
"I THINK BABY ARMANDO RECOGNIZES THE SOUNDS HE IS HEARING. OH I DO HOPE WE FIND HIS MOMMA AND HE KNOWS HER VOICE." Kacey and Sweetpepper say as they cuddle the baby close, keeping him safe. Armando chirps happily, straining his neck to see everything as the boats slip effortlessly through the murky waters.
"We are all so excited to be on this journey to find baby Armando's parronts.And to destroy all the poachers along the way who have done all this damage to our native habitat!" Dixie tells L'il Angel, an angry look in his dark eyes.
The boats turn the bend in the river, and there, laying on both banks are dozens of crocs and gators, basking in the mid-day sun. As the boats move forward, the paddles ripping swiftly through the water, black eyes open and disappear beneath the water at the edge of the river. Suddenly Falco lets out a terrified scream, grabbing onto Jesse. Their boat vibrates as the croc comes up from underneath, hitting the boat from below. Hulk and Willie hold tightly to their oars as the croc swims around the sides of the boat, then disappears under the water. " HELP!" Boo Boo yells as the croc hits the boat on the side, tipping it over, and causing it to take on water.
BB and Sky turn their long-boat quickly, with Kaji and JL paddling as hard as they can, Cappy holds his oar up, hoping to get a swing at the angry reptile.
your pal Amando 226

  Hello SweetPepper~
I hope you had a wonderful day! My little Budgie cousin Paige flew to the Rainbow Bridge this morning. Mom's sister took her and her fisters, Pru and Piper, in last year. She isn't really sure how old they are. It's very sad but at least I know she was loved and had a good life for the last year. The people who had them before never spent any time with them and they didn't even have any toys!
Dad made it home today so he'll be here for a day or two. He has a doctor's appointment in the morning. He has to fast for 12 hours so he only has an hour to go! He had better get to eating!hahahaha He wanted pizza so I am getting another lovely piece of crust today! That is twice in a week! Mom told me not to get use to it! Bummer!!!
Enjoy your evening! Sleep tight and sweet dreams!

IT WAS A GOOD TRIP TO THE VET--I WAS NOT AS GRUMPY AS USUAL, SO MOM WAS HAPPY. I WAS EVEN LAUGHING AND MAKING ALL KIND OF NOISES ON THE WAY HOME, SO SHE FIGURES THAT I DID FINE WITH THE NAIL TRIM AND THE ONE PRIMARY FLIGHT FEATHER TRIM. I EVEN FORGAVE HER IN ABOUT 10 MINUTES AFTER WE CAME HOME, AND PERCHED ON HER SHOULDER JUST ABOUT THE REST OF THE DAY.

GUESS WE GET SOME SNOW TONIGHT AND TOMORROW. THOSE ARE PRETTY COOL PICTURES IN YOUR GALLERY. EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE SNOWY ICY COLD STUFF, THAT IS! WE WANT PALM TREES AND SUNSHINE. DREAMING, HUH?

HAVE A GREAT DAY TOMORROW!
