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
HAPPY HUMPDAY
tonight mom had her hair in a pony tail while she cooked dinner and then left her hair like that when she got me out for play time. i really like that short stubby pony tail and got a hold of it and was yanking it back and forth. that also prevented mom from falling asleep

  Hi SweetPepper
Still, no sun here and more snow next week too! I'm so tired of it ... let's hit the spa and then have lunch after.
I think I was just having a PMS moment ... I was a good birdie today.
Well, we are back to cold and snow. Looks like a good peppermint hot chocolate day around here. I can drink it while watching dad plow the snow. He must like to do that cause he does it a lot ... must be fun. I just don't see it.

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
SO HAPPY TO HEAR YOUR MOM IS FEELING BETTER! I KNOW THOSE GOOD THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS SURE DO WORK!! THAT IS JUST THE BEST.

OH, THE GAME WAS A LITTLE WORSE THAN THE PACKERS ON SUNDAY. MOM SAYS THAT IT IS AMAZING HOW A TEAM CAN PLAY GOOD ONE WEEK AND THEN EMBARRASS THEMSELVES THE NEXT. THEY SHOULD HAVE NEVER GOTTEN RID OF LOVEY SMITH, EITHER. THEY HAVE TOTALLY TANKED SINCE THEN. IT IS SAD WHEN THAT HAPPENS TO A ONCE GOOD TEAM. AND WE KNOW...THE PACKERS HAVE BEEN THRU IT.

PERCH TIME. ONLY A WEEK UNTIL CHRISTMAS! MOM STILL HAS TO GET HER CARDS SENT OUT. SHEESH!

  Hi Sweetpepper
Mom wants to make some fudge yet. Yes Christmas was always special to moms kids growing up cause they even had their own Santa that would come and pass out the presents. Their dad did too when he was young and just kept going down the line of family.
Mom kept telling dad the commode upstairs was running sometimes but he didn’t listen to mom but today he heard it and was in a hurry then to fix it. Yep the water and sewage bill has been higher so that would be a sign alright but its hard for mom to convince dad of these things. Of course I was in lock down while mom had to clean the overhead commode vanity out and then put everything back once dad was done. She said it needed a good cleaning any way so guess that is one way to look at it LOL.

  HELLO MY LOVE
YES! THE PACKAGE FOR MOM ARRIVED AND SHE IS VERY EMBARRASSED THAT SHE FORGOT TO BLOG ABOUT IT. IT WAS DELIVERED MONDAY AFTERNOON AFTER SHE WAS ALREADY DONE WITH MY BLOGS, AND SHE FORGOT TO TELL YOU YESTERDAY. SHE HAS NOT OPENED IT THOUGH. IT WILL WAIT FOR CHRISTMAS MORNING.

I HAVE NOT BITTEN MOM SINCE THE BAD ONE ON HER LEFT HAND. IT AND HER KNEE CAP ARE STILL SORE, SO I HAD BETTER BEHAVE FOR A WHILE IF I WANT SANTA BIRD TO BE GOOD TO ME. RIGHT NOW I AM IN HER LAP GRINDING MY BEAK. IF I CAN JUST BE A GOOD BOY FOR A LITTLE LONGER IT WILL BE LUNCH TIME AND ANOTHER WRAP. I DO LOVE THOSE THINGS.

WAS THE FIRST EPIDURAL YOUR MOM GOT SOMETHING DIFFERENT THAN THE CAUDAL ONE? IT SEEMED LIKE THAT FIRST ONE REALLY HELPED, BUT THIS ONE DID MORE HARM THAN GOOD. I SURE HOPE THERE ARE NO MORE PROBLEMS WITH IT.

MOM IS IN ANOTHER INSURANCE BATTLE. SHE SPENT OVER AN HOUR ON THE PHONE THIS MORNING BETWEEN THE HOSPITAL, THE DOCTORS AND THE INSURANCE COMPANY. THIS TIME IT IS FOR THE SURGERY THAT WAS DONE IN AUGUST TO FIX HER HIATAL HERNIA AND PYLORIC VALVE. THIS HOSPITAL IS ALWAYS A PROBLEM. MOM NEVER HAD ANY ISSUES WITH BILLS FROM HER DOCTORS OR THE HOSPITAL HERE IN SIMI VALLEY. UNFORTUNATELY THEY AREN'T ABLE TO DO THE PROCEDURES THAT WERE DONE, EITHER THIS ONE OR THE ABLATIONS. MOM WILL NEVER USE THEM AGAIN THOUGH. HER GI DOC HAS PRIVILEGES AS BURBANK HOSPITAL TOO, AND IF THERE IS ANYTHING ELSE THAT CAN'T BE DONE AT SIMI SHE WILL GO THERE. OTHER PEOPLE DAD WORKS WITH HAVE HAD THE SAME ISSUES WITH THIS OTHER HOSPITAL. THEIR BILLING DEPT IS WAY OVER IN LAS VEGAS. MOM THINKS THEY ARE ALL OUT GAMBLING INSTEAD OF DOING THEIR JOB!

WE HAD A LITTLE MORE RAIN (.43") LAST NIGHT. SLOWLY BUT SURELY WE ARE CATCHING UP, BUT IT IS STILL A LONG WAY TO GO FOR THE RESERVOIRS AND LAKES TO BE FULL. HOPEFULLY THIS WINTER WILL FIX THINGS, AND WE WILL BE BACK TO NORMAL. TOESIES CROSSED!

  Hi Sweetpepper
Happy Hanukkah to those who celebrate. I also want to thank Aunt Robin for the pic of the carolers, it's awesome!
Last night at dog class, Daisy was a bit vocal, but not too bad. The trainer gave mom more tips to work with her and not let Polly feel left out.
Today mom has to go to her friend's house when the furnace guys come to fix it. Her friend is involved with getting her mom into hospice care, and has to sign papers and talk to the hospice people today.
We haven't heard from the guy who looked at the porch roof yet, so we still don't know how much it will cost to fix it. Mom is hoping it won't be too much, so she can still get the kitchen cabinets refaced or replaced. They are the original ones from the 50s, we think, and the hardware on them is shot. Some don't close well at all, and one of them lost the latch, which can't be found any more, since it's not sold anywhere.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Falco

.i sure hope santabird is paying much attention to me i am also biting more. when mom plays with me for my exercise sometimes if she gets me so worked up i can't tell the difference between her hand and the toy she is using to play with me so mom always tries to keep the toy in front of her hands. tonight mom was watching tv and i came over and bite her on the nose. luckily for mom is was just a play bite mom tries very hard to keep me away from her head and when mom kisses me she holds my beak so i can't bite but when i see an opportunity i take it. anyway i am back to making a cave out of the pillows and dragging my egg carton in there to shred it so maybe it is a little hormonal

  Hi SweetPepper
Glad the pic got there. Mom wasn't happy with how tiny they made them this year. It's a new system. Why do they do this at a busy time of year?
I think the sun went to Florida. I hope it's still there when I'm on vacation. But yes, I will help you look for it.
The two day rain got rid of most of the snow but, we still have some and more coming on Wednesday. Glad to be rid of the icy roads. I don't know about you but, I'm so stressed with this Santa Bird watching me all the time. I had a non-stop two hour scream session this morning. Mom couldn't take it and threaten to give me away! I finally calmed down with my peppermint hot chocolate. WHEW, that was a close call. How many more days do I have to be good???

  Hi Sweetpepper
Some people were wanting to know how to play Christmas with the Rights that mom plays with the grands and family so here it is:
CHRISTMAS WITH THE RIGHTS

Everyone sits in a circle holding the gift he or she bought with them for the Christmas box. Someone reads the story below, reading slowly enough for the gifts to be passed. Every time the word Right is read, everybody passes his gift to the right.Every time the word left is read, everybody passes to the left. The gift each person is holding when the story endsis the gift they keep.

Christmas is almost here, and Mother Right was finishing baking. Father Right, Sue Right and Billy Right returned from their last minute Christmas shopping. There's not much left to be done said Father Right as he came into the kitchen. Did you leave the basket of food at the church ? Asked Mother Right. I left it right where you told me said father Right. I'm glad my shopping is done said Billy Right I don't have any money left. The hall telephone rang and Susan Right left to answer it. She rushed back and told the family Aunt Tillie Right left a package for us on Grandma Rights porch. I'll go over there now and get it she said as she left in a rush. Father Right left the kitchen and bought in the Christmas tree. By the time Susan Right returned Mother Right, Father Right and Billy Right had begun to trim the tree. The entire Right family sang carols as they finished decorating. Then they left all the presents arranged under the tree and went to bed hoping they had selected the right gifts for their family. Now look at your right and wish all your friends and family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Now isn't that the right thing to do? That's all I have left to say except I hope you have the right present for your self, because that's all that's left to our story, except to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year~isn't that right??

Mom just buys little things for how many is in the family and wraps them up and takes them to them and they play the game while mom reads the story. Hope you enjoy it.

WELL, I HAVEN'T BITTEN MOM YET TODAY, BUT I AM IN HERE WITH HER BLOGGING AND CHEWING ON THE DESK LIKE A BUZZSAW. IT IS AN OLD DESK THAT MOM GOT FOR FREE FROM A FRIEND, SO SHE IS NOT FUSSING AT ME. MAYBE I WILL GET TODAY'S BITING OUT OF MY SYSTEM.

MOM AND BECKY FINISH OFF EACH SESSION WITH 5 OR 10 MINUTES OF ABS. BECKY SURE CAN COME UP WITH SOME TOUGH AB EXERCISES. MOM SAYS MOST OF THEM SHE HAS NEVER SEEN BEFORE, AND THEY ARE MUCH HARDER THAN CRUNCHES. MOM DIDN'T MAKE IT TO THE GYM THIS MORNING. IT RAINED LAST NIGHT, AND MOM JUST HAD TOO MUCH TROUBLE GETTING OUT FROM UNDER THE COVERS AFTER SHE WENT BACK TO BED. YES, SHE GOT UP AT 6:30 TO GIVE ME MY BREAKFAST THEN WENT BACK TO BED FOREVER! WELL, IT SEEMED LIKE FOREVER TO ME. SHE DIDN'T HAVE A TRAINER SESSION SCHEDULED, AND IT IS JUST HARD FOR HER TO GET MOTIVATED TO GO TO THE GYM WITHOUT IT.

WE DID HAVE A NICE LUNCH THOUGH. DAD MADE CHICKEN IN MEXICAN GREEN SAUCE WHICH IS NICE AND MILD, SO MOM CAN EAT IT. WE HAD THAT AND STEAMED SPINACH FOR LUNCH. NEEDLESS TO SAY I DID NOT EAT ANY SPINACH, BUT THAT SAUCE? I LOVED IT!

  Hi Sweetpepper
The duck will go to a farm sanctuary, since Pekin ducks are not native birds, but domestic waterfowl.
This morning mom had a docent meeting at the museum, and after the meeting was their holiday luncheon. Mom's fudge went over well, but there was a lot of food there, so there was leftover fudge to bring home. Mom gave some away to the guard at the gate and the guy collecting parking fees, but there was still more. Maybe Jeff, our neighbor with the Irish setters, will want some. Mom hopes so!
Tonight is dog class, and they will have a class next week, but be off the following week. Mom hasn't had a lot of time to work with Daisy this week, so she's not up to where mom would like.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Falco

Oh yes, I will help you look for that sun. Where did it go? It hasn't been around here!
Glad you got my pic. Mom was unhappy with them. She asked for a normal wallet size and got those little ones.
Too much running around today so, mom didn't get the gifts wrapped.
Sunday night news:
It was a "hot" day of 42 with lots of fog. The good part is the ice on the roads has melted. Now tonight, we have rain thru Tuesday night and then back to cold and snow. Don't put away the winter gear or hot chocolate, it's not even officially winter yet. It's like a sauna here ... LOL!

  Hello SweetPepper~
I hope your day was just perfect! We had some very dark clouds to the west but sunshine to the east! It looked very pretty. We didn't do a whole lot today. Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night and we have lots to get done around the house. Dad will be home Wednesday and he gets to stay home until Christmas is over!!
Mom went to the mall today to the Hallmark store to get Ian an ornament. She got him the Spiderman one this year. Mom has been buying him a Christmas ornament every year since he was born. This will be ornament #32! He has a strange collection of book characters, Godzilla, spaceships and action figures! The very first one was the Poky Little Puppy! That was his favorite book at the time!
I just love your pictures! We so look forward to seeing them! Your mom does a great job and you and Kacey look so cute!
How is mom's legs doing? We hope she is better. Is the doctor going to try something else? We are continuing our prayers for her and hope that she is not in pain!!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Well the middle grand is always second to do things so yesterday mom left the youngest then the oldest then the second one pick from the jar to stir things up a bit. The middle grand is alot like moms son and she knows how to get her hand just so in the jug to get the change up out the jug apparently LOL.
Today was warm around 40 but it sure was dull and dreary day. We never got rain here but when you went out side the humidity was so high it felt like you got wet. Mom stayed home all day doing her chores and washing clothes so I was happy with that. I did get up on the window sill behind my condo and watched the wild birds. Mom says I get a tad loud when I do that but it is exciting LOL. “One small crack doesn’t mean you are broken, it means you were put through the test and you didn’t fall apart.” Leaving a vote for you my friend~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

WELL, YOU ARE CHEWING ON YOUR MOM'S MAT, BUT I AM AFRAID I AM DOING EVEN WORSE. I AM CHEWING ON MOM. YOU WOULD THINK AFTER YESTERDAY'S TIME OUT FROM THE BITE ON MOM'S KNEE I WOULD BE CAREFUL TODAY, BUT NOPE! MOM AND I WERE PAYING HER CREDIT CARD BILL ON LINE, AND FOR SOME REASON WHILE SHE WAS WRITING THE ENTRY IN HER CHECK BOOK I BIT HER LEFT HAND REALLY HARD. IT DIDN'T POUR BLOOD, BUT IT IS STILL ALL BLOODY. NEEDLESS TO SAY I IMMEDIATELY WENT IN TO TIME OUT. MOM CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHY EITHER BITE HAPPENED. IT WASN'T EVEN THE HAND SHE WAS WRITING WITH, SINCE MOM IS RIGHT HANDED.

AND THE TIME OUT WAS A LONG ONE, BECAUSE MOM COLORED HER FEATHERS TODAY AND I CAN'T BE AROUND THOSE CHEMICALS. SO DURING THE HOUR OR SO THAT TOOK, I WAS CALLING PITIFULLY FROM MY ROOM TO NO AVAIL. HOWEVER SHE DID COME IN AS SOON AS SHE WAS DRESSED AFTER HER SHOWER, AND WE SHARED LUNCH. IT WAS A ROAST BEEF, SWISS CHEESE AND SPINACH ROLL UP AGAIN. MOM TRIED TO TRICK ME (I WAS STANDING ON HER SHOULDER WHILE SHE MADE IT) BY EATING A LEAF OF SPINACH WHICH OF COURSE I THEN WANTED. I GRABBED A PIECE OUT OF HER MOUTH, BUT AS SOON AS I REALIZED WHAT IT WAS I SPIT IT ON MOM'S SHOULDER. THAT'LL TEACH HER TO TRY AND GET TRICKY. I DO ENJOY EVERYTHING ELSE IN THOSE WRAPS THOUGH. IT WAS A NICE LUNCH.

THE MOUNTAINS AROUND OUR VALLEY (WHICH ARE TOO SMALL TO EVER GET SNOW) ARE FINALLY GREEN AND BEAUTIFUL. IT HAS BEEN YEARS SINCE THEY HAVE BEEN ANYTHING BUT AN UGLY BROWN. SO ALTHOUGH THIS WEATHER MEANS NO SUNBATHS FOR ME (MORE RAIN DUE TOMORROW) AT LEAST WE ARE GETTING MUCH NEEDED MOISTURE. THERE WAS TWO FEET OF SNOW IN THE SIERRAS, AND THAT IS WHERE OUR SPRING MELT COMES FROM.

MOM KEEPS FORGETTING TO BLOG THAT MY PACKAGE FROM YOU ARRIVED ON SATURDAY AND YOUR CHRISTMAS CARD TOO. I GOT TO SEE THE CARD, BUT THE BOX IS OFF LIMITS TILL CHRISTMAS. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT IS IN IT. YOU WILL BE GETTING A GIFT CARD FROM ME, BECAUSE MOM JUST CAN'T HANDLE SHOPPING IN STORES ANYMORE. HOWEVER THAT MEANS YOU GET TO PICK OUT WHAT YOU WANT, SO IT IS ALL GOOD.

Mom wasn't the only winner, there were 4 in the one game and 6 in the other. Everyone got a prize.
I want to thank everybirdie who came to visit me in the KB, it was a fast and fun 2 weeks. Time just flew by. I hope you all enjoyed the surprise showing of the Polar Express and the new ANNIE last night, too.
Today mom cleaned the runs and the fledgling aviaries at the center. There is a turkey vulture there who hissed at her! She just chuckled and kept working. She knows she's too warm to be attractive to a vulture. Even the red tailed hawk didn't hiss at her. There was a new trainee too, who was afraid of the box turtles. Mom helped her take them out and put them back once their cage was clean. Mom had just finished with the snapping turtle when the woman came and asked about the turtles. There is also a Pekin duck there. These ducks are domestic cousins of Mallards, and people usually raise them for food (you know, Peking duck at the Chinese restaurant?). If you've seen magicians with ducks, this is the duck he most likely has. This guy's leg was really bad when he got there, but it's great now, he's putting weight on it and even swimming in his pond.
Mom will make more fudge tonight for the docent luncheon tomorrow after their meeting. We won't be online until late tomorrow, probably.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and love. Hugs, Falco

After cage duty comes more Christmas Card prep, a true labor of love! Last year we sent out over 50 cards, but may not finish that many this year, it is a time constraint thing, and dad can't sit up straight for very long, his back starts to hurt really bad!

Mom doesnt give me apple cider but I do eat apples and I like pears too.
Today mom left early to go visit with skin brother and his family. The youngest grand will turn eleven next week so mom wanted to make sure he had his birthday card she made him and his birthday money. Of course this is the time of year mom drags the birthday jug down too so they can all pick out a handful of change. The jug is a gallon jug you get pretzels in so have to bring the hand up out of the jug a certain way but the middle child always does the best with the most change. Guess she knows how to do it LOL. Then mom gave them their Christmas presents also. They want to play the Right Family game so mom wrapped up 5 gifts and will take them down next time to play that with them. Roses are red, Violets are blue, I just left a vote for you! Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

I AM IN MY ROOM ON TIME OUT NOW, AND HER KNEE IS STILL HURTING 5 MINUTES LATER. SHE DOESN'T WANT TO LOOK AT IT, BECAUSE SHE IS PRETTY SURE I DREW BLOOD. AT LEAST SHE DIDN'T YELL AT ME, BUT THEN SHE NEVER DOES. THOSE TIME OUTS STINK THOUGH.

DAD DECIDED NOT TO MOW THE FRONT LAWN EVEN THOUGH THE RAIN MADE IT GROW SOME. IT IS STILL PRETTY SOFT FROM FRIDAY'S HEAVY RAIN. HE DOESN'T MIND, AND I AM GLAD HE IS NOT IN MY FRONT YARD. I HATE IT WHEN HE IS OUT THERE, AND ALL I CAN DO IS SCREAM AND BEAT ON THE WINDOW GLASS.

  Hi Sweetpepper
Mom's fudge turned out just fine, and was a hit at the party. There was so much food there, nobody got to sample everything! It's too bad they couldn't send everyone home with food for today, there was that much. Mom tried lots of things, just a spoonful, though.
Mom got elected to be one of the liaison people, along with her friend Mary, and another Monday volunteer got elected treasurer. It will be a group for the new phase of volunteer association things.
There were 2 games with prizes, too, each asking about different things. One was the birds in the 12 days of Christmas, and there were questions about their natural history. The other game was trivia about TV and Christmas, like Rudolph, It's a wonderful life, etc. Mom was one of the winners of each game, so she brought home 2 new owl ornaments for our tree. Guess that should give her incentive to put it up, right?
Today mom is working at the museum, but it will be easy: she's sitting at a cart to let people touch rocks and minerals.
I hope you are having a wonderful day and getting lots of Christmas things done. Mom will watch the Steelers on the DVR and do some wrapping when she gets home. Get lots of scritchies today! Hugs, Falco

  Morning SP, from your Jenny Lynn
Well the dad had a great time at our Club's Christmas Party, but came home tired and fell right to sleep! Now he is up early to start addressing our Christmas Cards, and he put a beef roast in our slow cooker, they always smell so good while cooking! Our commuter says we will reach 55 degrees today, jeepers it is 47 already! This should be a fun casual day around here, dad is about ready for one of those! I hope you all have a great day, and give our love to all in your happy home, we'll be back tomorrow...

Much love on Sunday & always, from Jenny & our family

OK, I'll send a box of snow. Then you can have a bit of a white Christmas.
I think that sun the other day was a tease! No sun for a long time, then it shows up, and hasn't been seen since!!! Did the polar vortex take it away?????
We finished the decorating, I helped! Mom is happy that is was 38 degrees today and the snow is melting. I hope all the roads are free from ice now.
Still a good night for some peppermint hot chocolate.

  Hi Sweetpepper
The nights of the 13th and 14th will be the peak of one of the best meteor showers of the year. Known as the Geminid meteor shower, it gets its name because the meteors appear to be zipping towards an observor from the constellation Gemini.

In the United States, head out after dark (best viewing is usually after 9 PM) and look a little north of due east. As long as you avoid other lights, you should be able to observe this year’s shower with the naked eye. Note that this year the moon will be rising after midnight so, unlike many showers that often are best seen in the VERY early morning, your best bet is to watch BEFORE midnight on the evenings of December 13 and 14—until the light of the moon as it rises makes the meteors harder to see..

Once the moonlight dies down, you may be able to see as many as 100 a meteors per hour on the nights of December 13th and 14th. In fact, the International Meteor Organization (IMO.net) predicts the hourly rate might be 120 meteors an hour at the peak of the shower.

  Hi Sweetpepper
Just cold here too and suppose to have freezing rain in the morning. It was very foggy here most of today.
In the fall there is an apple festival not far from our house and the parronts usually go every year. They buy the fresh apples and apple cider and bring it home. This year they bought two gallons of apple cider and froze one . Mom just took that one out of the freezer and mom says its better now then it was when she bought them but I think she is full of apples LOL. Roses are red, Violets are blue, I just left a vote for you! Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

WELL, YOU WILL BE HAPPY TO HEAR THAT THE HOUSES THAT WERE IN THE POTENTIAL MUDSLIDE AREA NEAR HERE (ON THE COAST) WERE EVACUATED VOLUNTARILY BEFORE THE RAIN. ONLY ONE FAMILY WERE DUMB ENOUGH NOT TO LEAVE, AND THEY HAD TO BE TAKEN OUT BY RESCUE TEAMS BUT NO ONE WAS HURT. I HOPE THEY GOT VERY MUDDY FOR BEING SO STUPID.

THE SUN IS SHINING TODAY, BUT IT IS STILL PRETTY SOGGY OUT THERE. AND THE TEMPS ARE IN THE LOW 60S FOR THE NEXT WEEK. SO I GUESS SUNBATHS ARE ON HOLD FOR THE TIME BEING. I AM HOPING NAIL TRIMMING IS ON HOLD TOO, BUT I AM AFRAID MOM WILL REACH THE POINT WHERE SHE CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE, AND SHE'LL JUST WRAP MY LITTLE CARRIER IN A TOWEL AND TAKE ME ANYWAY.

THE ONCOLOGIST SAID EVERYTHING LOOKS GOOD FOR MY MOM, BUT SHE HAS TO TAKE THE ANTI-CANCER MEDS FOR 1 1/2 MORE YEARS FOR A TOTAL OF 5 YEARS. SINCE IT IS ALSO GOOD FOR BONE DENSITY, I GUESS THAT IS NOT SUCH A BAD THING.

I PUT UP THE LATEST PIC FROM YOUR MOM LAST NIGHT, SO RIGHT NOW OUR PROFILE PICS MATCH. SOMEHOW YOU LOOK MORE BEAUTIFUL ON MY PAGE THOUGH. DON'T YOU THINK SO?

MOM AND DAD WENT OUT AFTER GROCERY SHOPPING AND DAD BOUGHT MOM A NEW BRUSH AT THE BEAUTY SUPPLY SINCE HE BROKE HER OLD ONE. THEN THEY WENT ACROSS THE STREET TO THE MEXICAN DELI AND GOT BURRITOS FOR LUNCH. THEY WERE CROWDED, SO EVERYTHING WAS BEING MADE UP VERY FRESH. MOM SAID IT WAS THE BEST CHILE RELLENO BURRITO EVER, AND I AGREE....ALTHOUGH OF COURSE, MY FAVORITE PART WAS THE RICE.

  Hello SweetPepper~
I hope you are having a great day! We've had no rain and the wind has died down too. It is a bit cooler but it's more like it should be this time of the year!
There was a blackbird running around the furniture pad at mom's store this morning. Someone left the garden doors open and he came on in!! Mom tried to get him to come to her but he just hid around the back of an ottoman. She called her manager and told him that the bird was there and he told her that he had come in the day before. Her manager chased him around for half an hour but couldn't catch him. Mom thought about the fishing nets in the sporting goods department but the mesh is too big and she doesn't want him hurt. Mom suggested they make a trail of seed to the garden door. If he has been in the store for a day he must be hungry. There is a fountain in the indoor garden so he had access to water at least. Mom will find out tonight if they managed to get him out.

There are only 11 more ads until Christmas!hahaha Of course they are going to do an ad the day after also so mom will have to be there at midnight. They have tons of wrapping paper so everyone will probably be in for that. It will get slower after a few weeks. They have a storage event and early tax time and then it will be Valentine's Day! They already have throws, blankets, pillows and decor for Valentine's Day! At least it's all in the stockroom and not out on the floor!
I hope you enjoy your day!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Sweetpepper
Today mom has to make fudge for the volunteer Christmas party at the wildlife center. It starts at 4, so she figured she'd do our blogs first, then make the fudge. Hope it has enough time to cool off, hahaha. She will wrap gifts for the staff while the fudge cools. At the party the volunteers will vote on new liaison people and a treasurer to handle volunteer donations for next year. Mom doesn't even know who's running yet.
Yesterday mom got to the Waterfront and circled around a couple of times before going to the back lot and parking. It meant carrying the box with supplies, which is why she was hoping for a closer spot. It worked out though, the box was more awkward than heavy. In the building where they were wrapping gifts, there were kids' craft tables set up to make cards, snowflakes, and 3D paper trees. There was also live music (think loud), and Santa was there to greet everyone and have kids get their pictures taken. It was funny, a few of the kids saw him and started to cry!
The center will get a donation from the property for showing up, and they collected a few bucks last night, too. It was a different kind of evening, for sure!
I think the sing along went well last night, and everybirdie seems to be enjoying the new fireplace at the KB. Thanks to Ms. BB and all her helpers for doing that! Tonight we will have a big dinner there, and cook in the fireplace. I started some stone soup, if you have any veggies or anything, come toss them in the kettle! I'm sure there will be enough to share with all the birds who come by. See you there!
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Falco

Oh yes, we had one hour of bright sun in the afternoon. I didn't know what that was for a minute ... what is that bright thing in the sky?????
Mom hopes that she can finish the decorating this weekend and then wrap gifts. She says no more interruptions please!
Today was a no snow no sun just cold day. They say the snow will be back on Tuesday night. I understand that many birds will not have a white Christmas. Therefore I'm offering our snow to any bird who wants it. Have a warm and cozy night.

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
THAT MOM OF MINE IS SOMETHING--SHE ACTUALLY STOPPED TO WATCH HER FAVORITE TV SHOW, GRIMM, AND THEN GOT TOTALLY SUCKED INTO THE ONE ON AFTER (CONSTANTINE). TALK ABOUT CUTTING INTO MY BLOGGING TIME!

SORRY THAT YOUR MOM HAD A ROUGH NIGHT--DEFINITELY IS NOT A GOOD THING AT ALL. DID SHE CALL THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE? SURE HOPE SHE GETS SOME RELIEF FROM THE CRAMPING. THAT IS NOT GOOD.

ANOTHER GREY DAY HERE. SURE AM NOT THRILLED WITH THE WAY IT IS SO DAMP. WHEN MOM CAME TO GET ME OUT OF MY HOUSE THIS MORNING, I WAS STILL SLEEPING! BOY, DID I GIVE HER A LOOK, TOO. SHE TOLD ME SHE WAS MORE THAN READY TO GO BACK TO SLEEP, BUT SHE HAD TO GO TO WORK, SO I KNOW SHE WAS JUST TALKING.

GIVE YOUR MOM SOME SPECIAL WING HUGS AND BEAKY KISSES FROM ME. AND TAKE GOOD CARE OF HER, OKAY?

  Hi Sweetpepper
The parronts often put stuff on the dining room table and I never bother it unless its food. In fact the mail was not touched at all and dad didnt think he put the $5 on the table till he got to the office and looked around for it and thought he dropped it down stairs.
Mom gets behind and then wonders how it happened. I cant tell her how it all happens. In the morning she chats with skin sis a while and then she sits and reads the paper while she eats breakfast and sits longer then she should too. Then she starts 3 projects at once and tries to do all at that same time instead of doing one and finishing it. Of course this gets supper way behind then showers are later and poof before she knows it she is going to bed. She says tomorrow she is going to change things around so we will see LOL.

WELL, I DIDN'T HAVE TO GO TO THE GROOMER YESTERDAY, BECAUSE MOM DECIDED IT WAS TOO CHILLY OUTSIDE. AND THEN THE RAIN STARTED LAST NIGHT AND CONTINUED ALL NIGHT LONG. WE GOT 1.66" HERE, AND THAT WILL REALLY HELP ALL THE PLANTS. WE ARE NOT IN AN AREA WHERE THERE IS ANY DANGER FROM MUDSLIDES OR FLOODING. THAT IS ONE OF THE THINGS MOM AND DAD TOOK INTO CONSIDERATION BEFORE THEY BOUGHT THE HOUSE.

I AM SHORT ON TIME TODAY, BECAUSE MOM HAS TO TAKE OFF FOR THE ONCOLOGIST APPT IN JUST A LITTLE BIT, THEN AFTERWARDS SHE IS HELPING HER FRIEND JUDY PROOF READ HER PAPER FOR ONE OF HER FINALS. THIS IS THE FIRST SEMESTER OF HER MASTERS PROGRAM AND SHE IS DOING REALLY WELL. SHE CREDITS MOM WITH THE HIGH GRADES ON HER PAPERS, BUT SHE WRITES THEM....MOM JUST EDITS FOR SPELLING, GRAMMAR AND WORD CHOICES. SWHE SAYS MOM SHOULD HAVE BEEN AN ENGLISH TEACHER!

Yep, it's a wireless router.
Well, the furnace saga has its happy ending. Not only is the new furnace efficient, it's quiet! Mom loves that you can barely hear it coming on, not like the old one that really needed a muffler to keep the noise down.
Mom did her lecture at the museum today, talked about as many Arctic birds and mammals as she researched, and got done in 65 minutes! She was trying to keep it to an hour, because the teacher requested it. They went through Polar World, Bird Hall, North American Mammals and what's called the 'Dark Hall' on the first floor. That's an area where old exhibits are, not lit up any more, but there are flashlights provided for kids to explore the dark exhibits. Some of the class didn't even know about that spot! Mom knew there were blue geese, eider ducks, and ravens there, though, and she wanted to show everyone where to find them.
I hope you are having a good day. We will probably be in lockdown for the day, because mom has to go to the Waterfront to wrap gifts for the wildlife center from 4 to 8. I bet by the time she gets home, she'll just eat, let the dogs out, and give us a quick scritch before heading off to bed.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hi SweetPepper my dear, from Jenny Lynn
We are having Winter like weather, with a lot of overcast skies, but warming up nicely! We are terribly concerned about our West coast friends with all the rain, high winds, flooding, mud slides, and so on! Kiddo and aunt Pam, Poirot and MB, the fabulous LaHabra flock, Margie Gear and flock in SF, the Proctor flock, and of course our beloved Sugar bear! On the upbeat side, we got another sweet phone call from our aunt Theresa G in Wallops Island, and our Christmas cards arrived, they are great in their simplicity! Our Bird Club Christmas party is tomorrow night, they are so much fun with all those bird loving folks to hang out with, but us birds will be at home, what's up with that! TGIF dear friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Friday love from Jenny & our Dallas family

  Hi SweetPepper
Thanks, that is an old pic of us that Scoober's mom made. My mom loves it and wanted to put it up again for a while.
My mom hid all the gifts really well. I have been walking around and looking for them ... with no luck.
Well, one more spa day this week. I think I'll hang out in the hot tub.
The BC has been very slow and jumpy for us with the squawk page of course.
We had another day with some sun and no snow. What is going on? I'm liking this! Our roads are still ice but the highway is ok.
Today, I helped mom with the Christmas cards. She says I did a good job. I stepped on each one ... hehehe.
