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
Hot tub, here I come! It's going to feel so good! Are we getting talons done today too? I think it's a bit too early for St. Patrick's themes, but some spring flowers sound good.
Keep thinking spring! Daylight savings time starts this weekend, and spring is only 15 days away.
Meanwhile we had more snow overnight, about 4 to 6 inches. Mom checked this morning and both her museum tours were cancelled. That's good because it's now after 11, and the plow/salt truck just went up our street. When mom walked the dogs, it wasn't done yet and the streets were a bit slippery. The good news is that mom waited to walk the dogs, and a lovely thing happened. Apparently school was cancelled here, and there were 3 teens with snow shovels walking around the corner. She pointed out the house, and by the time she got back with the dogs, the driveway and front walk had been done. Mom is always happy to pay someone to do that for her. They also salted and took the recycle can to the edge of the driveway. They were going to take the trash out, but mom told them to leave that can as she wasn't done loading it yet. It looks like a good day to stay home and read today.
Thanks for updating us on Nana's progress. Mom hasn't called Aunt Rose for a couple of days. I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Although it's in the 20's now - that's a whole heap warmer than mornings have been ! And, even better ? It looks like Thor has decided to stay south of us ! We're only expecting 2-4 instead of the original 4-8 ! Good thing - mom is getting so behind with the kids . . . yesterday was another delay ! It sure is tough fitting a whole day into half !

I don't complain though - it means more mom time for me :) Yummy things like a bit of corn muffin and strawberry for breakfast :) mmmm, mmmmm, good !

the budgies are still being very bad. Paddy has now gotten Piddy to follow him to see Boo Boo on the floor.Piddy has no interest in Boo Boo which is just as well and Paddy keeps himself in the middle between Boo Boo and Piddy. Piddy is very impressed with the crystal water dish and is spending most of her time playing in the water which is good since her face is covered with the harrison pellet crumbs.

this weather is unbelievable. you can't even drive on the roads now. its been snowing at our house all day. at least its not bitterly cold, just cold.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

  Hi SweetPepper
We got about 5 inches of snow and some ice on top. But, that bitter cold and winds were bad.
Today we had 14 degrees for our high with high winds and snow. But, the weather people say that next week we will have high 30's. This is eggciting news! Time to get out the flip flops and sun hat. It's one day closer to beach time.
Meanwhile, we need to enjoy the next two spa days.

  Heya, SweetPepper!
Sorry for the c/p tonight...

Mom and I are fine, but she has work to do tonight--looks like this will be a regular thing every 3-4 weeks as she has to write acceptance criteria for the project work that is being done. So of course it runs into my blogging time...but I will forgive her. She says she will take the time back on another day if she can.

Sorry for the short notes but you know how it goes when the puter is being used for work and not fun.

  Hi Sweetpepper
Mom has had the clear plastic sheet under my condo for as long as I have been here and the same one too. Mom thinks she has seen the clear plastic sold at Walmarts too and on a long roll and the sales clerk cuts it to the length you want it. They are about 60" wide so a good size. Mom used the same stuff to cover her dining room chairs too.
Mom says I have been like a Velcro fid lately and am always on or with her it seems. Well you know how that goes with the hormones so thinking mom is my girlfriend. Tonight when I went in with mom while she took her bath I went to fly up on the cabinet like I do and sit there and then get on the shower rod. Well I flew to the mirror instead and mom said I was hanging like a bat. She was out of the tub so she helped me off there. I did end up on the shower rod though and hung out there for a while. it’s a neat place and up really high too! “Roses are red, Violets are blue, Your house is blessed because a fid lives with you.” leaving a vote for you.~~your friend forever, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

THAT SOUNDS JUST AWFUL, AND I CAN'T EVEN IMAGINE WHAT -25 WOULD FEEL LIKE. YOU ARE EXPECTING A HEAT WAVE THAT WOULD BE THE COLDEST DAY EVER HERE. AND WE ARE EXPECTING A REAL HEAT WAVE: 81 FOR SATURDAY!! TOMORROW IT IS SUPPOSED TO GET UP TO 75, SO BOTH ME AND MOM'S SUN TEA WILL BE OUTSIDE CATCHING THE RAYS. NOT QUITE WARM ENOUGH TODAY, ALTHOUGH MOM DID CONSIDER IT.

I HELPED MOM MAKE OUR LUNCH TODAY. AT FIRST I WAS ALARMED WHEN SHE PULLED THE BIG ROASTING PAN OUT OF THE FRIDGE THAT THE LEFTOVER PORK SHOULDER AND POTATOES WERE IN. I FLEW AROUND THE KITCHEN AND LANDED ON MOM'S HIP! SHE LET ME STAY THERE, AND PRETTY SOON I CLIMBED UP TO HER SHOULDER AND WATCHED AS SHE CHOPPED UP PIG PARTS AND POTATOES FOR OUR BURRITO. IT WAS VERY TASTY, BUT SHE FORGOT TO PUT IN THE PEPPER JACK CHEESE LIKE SHE PROMISED. GUESS SHE WILL JUST HAVE TO MAKE A PORK AND CHEESE SANDWICH FOR LUNCH TOMORROW.

SURE DID HAVE A GOOD TIME WITH KACEY AND MIKEY LAST NIGHT. THAT CAKE LIZZIE BAKED SURE WAS TASTY. AND THE PARTY FAVORS WERE FUN TOO. SURE GLAD THERE WEREN'T ANY BALLOONS THOUGH. I HATE THOSE THINGS.

  Hello SweetPepper~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Mom just got back from the vet with Mandy. She has been digging at herself because of the fleas. They put Revolution on her and gave her a pill that will kill the fleas within one hour. Merlin will be going at 3pm today to get his Revolution and some shots too! He is not going to be a very happy cat!
The vet told mom that there is this stuff called Flea Blaster that is all natural and perfectly safe around birds. It will kill all the fleas, eggs and larva that might be in the rug. Mom will be getting some of that today too! We will be flea free within a few days! YES!
Mandy does not have dysplasia. It is a spinal degenerative disease. It is just because of her age and there is nothing they can do. She is not in any pain since it's more like paralysis than arthritis. She can still make it around the house and she is still eating well so he told mom she is doing the right thing. He gave mom some cortalone to help with any inflammation. He was very impressed that mom knew about the "Sling" to help her walk! Thank you so much to Aunt Arlene for that information!
Ian and Mom carried her downstairs and lifted her into the car. She was a bit nervous to begin with but mom put the window down and she was happy!! The vet told mom that when she stops coming along to get me out of my night cage and won't eat then that will be the time to let her go. For now we still have her! Mom is just glad to know that Mandy is not in pain!
Sorry I went on and on!! You can tell we are very happy that for now, Mandy is okay!
Enjoy the day!

  Hi Sweetpepper
16 days to spring! Thanks for posting the update on Nana.
Well, mom was supposed to go to a meeting at the museum today, but with the horrid weather conditions, she opted to stay at home. It was rain changing to snow when she got up this morning, and the temps have been falling since then. When she walked the dogs (at 10!) the salt truck was going up the street, so it's slippery. We don't have sidewalks in our plan, so mom walks on the street and was glad to see the truck. If mom goes out at all today, it will be to Mystery Lovers Book store to pick up some books she ordered last week, and to the supermarket to buy more grapes and berries for us.
I hope you are having a nicer day, less yuck on the ground, more warm in the sky. Get lots of scritches and cuddles today and stay warm. Hugs, Falco

  Flitzer on an icy Wednesday in Buffalo
LA Fitness today: Dad had an adventure keeping his commitment of going to the gym:
The real work-out was trying not to fall down my driveway or in the street. Everything was sheer ice.
Crawled/Slid/Skidded down the driveway -and the street was worse.

Ice-covered by water - no way to get a foothold anywhere. HE IS BAD ON ICE

I, King Flitzer, have decreed today "Apple Day". Dad cut up apples for me in my preferred shape and size. Yay me! Have a Happy Day!

  Hi Sweetpepper !
Happy Humpday ! Mom didn't have her drama club yesterday - all after school activities were cancelled cause of snow. It didn't start till about 3:00 but it came hard and steady till we had about 4-5 inches and then overnight it changed to freezing rain and sometime this morning it's supposed to go over to plain rain. The sanders just went by . . . later tonight it changes back to snow - 4-6 inches tomorrow ! When will it end ? Although, I must say it was nice having mom home early to play yesterday !

Don't forget to go play NAME THAT TUNE on page 231616 ! Love Cookie

We didn't get it bad today but, the month isn't over. It just seemed like a normal winter mess for us.
If Kacey's name is drawn to be a jockey, Aunt Denise will contact her for a pic. RaneBeau's mom is our official photographer for the derby.
It was just another sunless snowy day. Not as bad as we thought it would get but yes, dad was out plowing. I was busy helping mom with laundry.

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
WE HAD A COUPLE INCHES OF SNOW. IT WAS MISERABLE THIS MORNING, SO MOM STAYED HOME AND WORKED FROM HERE. I HELPED HER OUT, TOO, AND JOINED IN ON HER PHONE MEETING. I THINK THE FOLKS ON THE MEETING ENJOYED WHAT I HAD TO SAY, TOO. DID MY BEST WHISTLE PART OF A SNORE, AND DID SOME BRAC-BRAC CALLS. I WAS SO HAPPY TO HAVE HER HOME. WE HAD SOME FREEZING STUFF BUT NOTHING LIKE THEY PREDICTED. HOPE YOUR SNOW WAS NOT BAD.

OTHER THAN THAT, IT WAS JUST A WONDERFUL DAY WITH MOM. SHE GOES IN TO WORK TOMORROW. THEY CLEANED UP PRETTY GOOD HERE, BUT WHO KNOWS WHAT IT IS LIKE DOWN WHERE SHE WORKS? THEY JUST DON'T CLEAN UP AS GOOD AS THEY DO HERE WHERE WE LIVE.

BIG FREEZE COMING AGAIN. SHEESH.

Our floors are hardwood but mom has a big sheet of clear plastic she bought at the fabric store and its under my condo and play gym so it keeps the floor clean. Mom just wipes or sweeps up the messes I make under my condo and playgym a couple times a day. When she scrubs everything gets all moved around LOL
Today mom went for some groceries but she wasn’t gone too long. Dad was home so I didn’t have to be in my condo so that was good. Mom got a sweet potato and she cooked it for me and added some in with my bean and rice mix today. I like them but just for a change once in a while. Mom says they are good for me too. “Roses are red, Violets are blue, Your house is blessed because a fid lives with you.” leaving a vote for you.~~your friend forever, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

WELL, MY DARLING, I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND YOUR MOODS. ALTHOUGH I HAVE BEEN QUITE WELL-BEHAVED FOR THE PAST WEEK OR SO, BEFORE THAT I WAS QUITE THE BEAST. IT SEEMS TO COME AND GO, BUT MOM HAS CAUGHT ME MAKING LOVE TO THE TOWEL THAT SHE LEAVES OVER THE FOOTSTOOL IN MY ROOM. IT IS FOR PUTTING OVER HER LEGS, SO I WON'T CHEW HER PANTS, SO IT SMELLS LIKE HER. GUESS THAT IS WHY I LIKE IT SO MUCH.

I HATE TO ADMIT IT, BUT DAD HAD A FLASH OF GENIUS YESTERDAY. HE HUNTED DOWN THE RADIO/CD PLAYER HE USED TO HAVE IN THE GARAGE, BUT HE REPLACED IT WHEN THE CD PLAYER QUIT WORKING. I DON'T HAVE ANY CDs (ALTHOUGH NOW YOU HAVE GIVEN MOM THE IDEA, AND SUSPECT THAT A PLAYER WILL BE NEXT FOR ME), IT WORKS FINE FOR MY ROOM. AND THE TV? WELL, DAD REMINDED MOM THAT SHE UPGRADED THE BEDROOM TV, BECAUSE SHE WANTED A BETTER ONE NOT BECAUSE THE OLD ONE DIED. SO THEY TRIED HOOKING IT UP IN THE LIVING ROOM, AND IT WORKS JUST FINE. IT IS ABOUT 10 YEARS OLD, SO IT MAY NOT LAST TOO LONG, BUT THE ONE IT REPLACED WAS NEARLY 20 YEARS OLD!! MOM TOLD DAD HE SAVED HER $550, SINCE SHE PLANNED TO BUY THE NEW STUFF, AND DID SHE OWE IT TO HIM? HE JUST LAUGHED, SO I GUESS HE ISN'T ALL THAT SMART AFTER ALL!

WE GOT A LITTLE MORE RAIN (.27") LAST NIGHT TO BRING US UP TO .91" FOR THE PAST FIVE DAYS. THAT IS 2 OR 3 STORMS WORTH (THEY WERE NEVER CLEAR ON HOW MANY DIFFERENT STORMS CAME THRU.) PITIFUL! HOPEFULLY THEY GOT MORE IN SNOW FOR THE MOUNTAINS. IT DEFINITELY RAINED MORE WHERE PANTHER LIVES, SO HERE'S HOPING. THE LAWN SURE IS GREEN THOUGH.

  Hi Sweetpepper
Mom was good yesterday in her winter silks, her long sleeved shirt, jeans, and a fleece vest. Only her hands and nose were really cold. Her hands hurt all day, but she thinks that was her arthritis aggravated by the cold. She is fine today.
There's not much going on today. Mom is going to have a late lunch/early dinner with her sister later, after they shop at Barnes and Noble and maybe a few other places. Other than that, it's a dull day here.
It's supposed to go up to 42 today, which will mean that a lot of the nasty ice will melt, but mom never believes that until it happens. I hope you are having a great day, staying warm, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Mom had a really short day yesterday - two hour delay for school cause of snow and then she had a workshop in the afternoon - she got home when she should have is all that mattered to me :) This afternoon is her drama club meeting . . . only we're supposed to get a couple more inches of snow so she may cancel - wait and see.
Good news is that by the weekend it's supposed to be near 40 ! ! !

Monday Dad got me in the Travel Cage and took me to get my claws done with Aunt Maria.
I decided, for a change, not to fight it, and it passed quickly. Dad even bought some extra seeds for me while he was there. I must say, it was nice getting out as I've been stuck at home for the past couple months in record-cold temperatures.

Why is G-ma angry at you?
Looks like early morning it will start up here. Can't wait to get to the spa.
We had another sunny day with 18 degrees. Tuesday it's back to a winter weather advisory. It looks like an all day snow. The bad part is, we always get a really bad winter storm at the beginning of March or the end. So far, it came in as a lamb ... oh oh! Well, it's back to the footie pj's and hot chocolate for me.

YEAH, THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT SNOW AT RUSH HOUR, THEN CHANGING OVER TO FREEZING RAIN. YOU KNOW DARN WELL WHEN THEY SAY 'FREEZING' AND 'RAIN' IN THE SAME SENTENCE, MOM SAYS SHE IS NOT DRIVING IN THAT. SHE WILL WORK FROM HOME. HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE OKAY WITH HER BOSS. SHE JUST DOESN'T HAVE THE ENERGY TO DRIVE IN CHAOS, MORE THAN THE NORM.

AND THEN WE GO BACK TO THE ARCTIC AIR. SHEESH. WISH IT WOULD GET NICER OUT. MOM SAYS SHE SAW 3 SPARROWS TODAY, AND TWO MALES WERE COURTING A FEMALE. SO SPRING IS COMING. WHEN IS THE OPERATIVE WORD.

Aunt Jill had the site on FB for the cup song and its sung to "Your gona miss me when I'm gone" but have no idea where to find it but Chyna is the only one that knows it too so she might know.
Today mom and I washed clothes and scrubbed the floors. I got to jump in the clothes when they came out of the dryer..ummm they are so nice and warm. I didn’t really help to scrub much but when mom got that sweeper running I took a bath in my water bowl and gave her more splash on the floor to clean up plus get me new water too.

it was a nightmare at our house last night. mom was dragging the garbage cans and recyclable bin up the icy snow packed driveway and she kept hearing this Zzzzzing sound and finally realized it was the electrical wire leading from the house to the street. mom told dad who called the electric company, the cable company , the police and the fire department since we didn't have a clue what was happening. they all showed up at once. at first they said it was just the ice and snow on the lines but just to be safe theychanged the transformer cover and cable and the Zzzzzing sound went away. while they did this the power was shut off to the house. we really didn't need any lights because all the trucks and equipment made it seem like daylight outside. at least it is fixed now.

WELL, SO GLAD TO KNOW THAT G-MA UNDERSTANDS THAT YOU MEANT NOTHING BY THE BITING. NOW IF I WAS TO BITE MY DAD IT WOULD BE INTENTIONAL, BUT WE JUST DON'T GET THAT CLOSE TO EACH OTHER. I USUALLY CLIMB UNDER THE TOWEL MOM HAS OVER HER LEGS (TO PROTECT HER PANTS FROM NIBBLING) WHEN DAD POKES HIS HEAD IN TO VISIT. THEN I PEEK MY HEAD OUT AT HIM, JUST TO MAKE SURE I KEEP AN EYE ON HIM AT ALL TIMES.

MY RADIO DIED TODAY! MOM THOUGHT SHE HAD JUST BUMPED THE TUNER AND LOST THE STATION, BUT THERE WAS NOTHING ON EITHER AM OR FM CHANNELS, SO I NEED A NEW ONE. FUNNY THING IS THAT DAD'S TV IN THE LIVING ROOM STARTED GOING OUT YESTERDAY, AND IT WAS WITHOUT PICTURE JUST SOUND THIS MORNING. SO THEY HAD ALREADY PLANNED A TRIP TO BEST BUY FOR A NEW TV, AND NOW THEY WILL NEED TO BUY A RADIO TOO. AT LEAST IT SAVES A TRIP. DAD SAYS MOM SHOULD GET A SMART TV FOR HER BEDROOM, AND MOVE THAT ONE INTO THE LIVING ROOM. IT IS A FLAT TV, 40" AND HD, BUT IT IS NOT CAPABLE OF RECEIVING WIFI. MOM THINKS THAT IS A GREYT IDEA, BECAUSE SHE CAN GET SOME FREE STUFF FROM AMAZON PRIME WITH THE RIGHT TV.

WE DID GET RAIN AGAIN LAST NIGHT, BUT STILL NOT MUCH EVEN THOUGH IT CAME DOWN ALL NIGHT. IT WAS A VERY GENTLE RAIN, AND FOR THE LAST 5 DAYS WE HAVE ONLY ACCUMULATED .47", WHICH IS SURE NOT GOING TO END THE DROUGHT. HOPEFULLY THE MOUNTAINS GOT SOME SNOW. IT IS SUPPOSED TO WARM UP BY THE WEEKEND, AND I SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET OUT FOR A SUNBATH BY THURSDAY OR FRIDAY WITH UPPER 70s BY SATURDAY!

YOUR SOON TO BE WARM HUSBIRD,
KIDDO

  Hi Sweetpepper
The space heaters are turned off when everyone leaves. The animals are wild animals, they are used to changes in the weather and cold. It would probably be very dangerous to leave them on unattended.
Yesterday mom did call off at the museum, as the weather was horrid. It snowed most of the morning and into the afternoon, then it changed to rain and froze. The good news is that Josh came and shoveled, then salted. That didn't keep it from freezing overnight, though, so mom had to salt the front walk and the driveway before she could walk the dogs and leave.
Mom's did her taxes yesterday, and with the refund, she may buy a new stove. At least that's what she's thinking right now.
Today mom worked at the very cold wildlife center. They have set up space heaters, but the building is so big with high ceilings, they didn't help much. Mom cleaned up after the gull in the small flight aviary (no heater in there), then she worked in the recovery room (again, no heater in there). She was pretty cold when she got done with the animals, so she asked if it was okay to leave. They said yes, of course! Now she's working on warming up.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches, and staying warm. Spring in 18 days! Hugs, Falco

6 inches is average/normal for an entire winter here. Mom saw on the national news last night, there is a company that will ship snow. Bye bye

  Morning SP & family, from Jenny
We are now engaged in another beautiful Monday morning, thank you Lord! It will be another catch up day for dad and us, but I have no idea how he could ever get behind, he is constantly trying to stay ahead of the curve! All of our bird things are done precisely when they should be! We always have fresh water and food is presented to us 24/7, he says we can't run to the fridge, or the sink for a drink whenever we want to like our humans! Nothing special planned for today, but tomorrow will explode with a ton of necessary errands, that must be taken care of, that is how we roll! Please give my love to all in your Monday home, see ya tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny & our Dallas family

  Flitzer Monday Musings
Hello from King Flitzer. I was so surprised with the giant Carrot Cake greeting me yesterday.
I hope you all got to have a beakfull.

Sadly, another cold, snowy slippery Monday morning commute. Daddy says the whole town is miserable as Monday commutes are the most difficult on the spirit as well.

March can be as brutal as February here in Buffalo-land. We are pleading for mercy.

Everyone have a great day. ~Wings Up~

  Morning Sweetpepper !
Where does the weekend go ? Although yesterday was a good day with my Laura coming to celebrate her birthday ! After some chicken (yum) there was a strawberry for me while the hoomans had brownie cake ! Then I got to have the wrappings from the present . . . the only bad part was it ended too soon since mom wanted Laura home before dark cause of all the snow !

Yep, about 6 more inches ! It started just before noon and kept coming - a light snow, but steady, so it added up. Mom is waiting now for the phone to ring about a delay . . .

Have a good day :) I love my friends ! Cookie

  Hi SweetPepper
It took my mom 4 tries and then I finally opened my door. An offer of a treat will work just fine.
Oh yes, we have the snow / ice caves and ice balls again this winter.
So happy to hear that Nana is doing better. Thanks for the posts.
I enjoyed my day playing and getting into trouble ... hehehe. I loved the sunny day with no snow but it will be back tomorrow. Hope you had a nice weekend.
Hugs

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
I HAVE TO SAY THAT GRANDMA SHOULD HAVE DROPPED THE PHONE. I DON'T LIKE THE CELL PHONE, AND I WILL ATTACK IT GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY. MOM WILL NEVER TALK ON IT IF I AM AROUND. SO YOU WERE NOT GOING AFTER GRANDMA, YOU WERE PROTECTING HER FROM THAT ICKY PHONE! I DON'T DO IT FOR OUR LANDLINE PHONE--SO WHO KNOWS? I WILL TALK TO GRANDPA WHEN MOM IS ON THE LANDLINE PHONE (CORDLESS). BUT DON'T COME NEAR ME WITH THAT CELL PHONE. THOUGH I DO LIKE WATCHING VIDEOS ON IT, BUT ONLY SOMETIMES.

WE ARE SUPPOSED TO GET ABOUT 3-5 INCHES OF SNOW, BUT THEN GET RAIN AND SLEET AND ICY STUFF ON TUESDAY. YUCK. MOM IS NOT DRIVING IN TO WORK ON TUESDAY IF IT IS SNOWING OUT. NOPE NO WAY. SHE WILL LET HER BOSS KNOW, AND HE SHOULD BE OKAY WITH IT. SHE HAS NO DESIRE TO BE OUT WITH THE IDIOTS WHO THINK THEY KNOW HOW TO DRIVE, BUT DON'T. AND SHE DOESN'T WANT TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH RAIN AND FREEZING STUFF EITHER.

YOU MAKE SURE YOU GIVE YOUR MOM A BEAKY KISS, AND PLEASE DON'T FEEL BAD ABOUT WHAT YOU DID. JUST MAKE SURE GRANDMA DOESN'T HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST YA, OKAY?

YOUR BUDDY,
KAJI

  Hi Sweetpepper
We had all kind of weather today from snow, sleet and rain and back to snow tonight! Guess the weather doesnt know its March yet.
Today mom and I watched this girl sing the cup song on face book. I really liked it and just watched it and was so involved in it so mom played it again for me. She was telling skin sis about the song and the grand knows it and promises she will sing and do it for me the next time I see her. Maybe I need my own cup so I can sing along LOL “Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart.” Leaving a vote for you my friend…hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  MY LOVELY WIFEBIRD
WELL, I HAVE TO SAY IN YOUR DEFENSE THAT I AM SURE YOU WERE ATTACKING THE PHONE AND NOT G-MA. MOM REALIZED THAT I WILL ALWAYS GO AFTER THE PHONE IF SHE IS FOOLISH ENOUGH TO ANSWER IT WITH ME IN THE ROOM, AND IT IS THE PHONE I ATTACK BUT HER HAND WHICH TAKES THE INJURY. SINCE THE PHONE WAS AT G-MA'S EAR, THAT IS WHERE YOU GOT HER. HOWEVER I AM SURE IT WAS REALLY THE PHONE YOU WANTED. MOM NEVER TALKS ON THE PHONE IF I AM IN THE ROOM WITH HER, OR SHE PULLS UP THE POOP TOWEL BETWEEN ME AND HER EAR AND TELLS THE PERSON TO HOLD ON WHILE SHE PUTS ME AWAY. I HOPE ALL IS FORGIVEN AND FORGOTTEN AT YOUR HOUSE BY NOW.

MOM WALKED IN TO THE HOUSE AFTER TRAINING AND ZUMBA AND THE AROMA OF ROAST PORK AND POTATOES GREETED HER. SHE SAID SHE STARTED SALIVATING IMMEDIATELY. DAD IS A CHAMP AT FIXING ROASTS, AND THIS ONE WAS DONE ABOUT 2PM AND MOM SHARED A NICE PLATE WITH ME. I LIKED THE PORK BUT THE POTATOES WERE THE BEST PART AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED. MOM SAYS IT WAS A TOSS UP FOR HER, BECAUSE THEY WERE BOTH YUMMY. SHE WILL PROBABLY STEAM SOME SPINACH FOR HERSELF FOR DINNER JUST TO GET HER GREENS. NEEDLESS TO SAY THAT IS ONE MEAL I WILL NOT BE SHARING!

SO BOOBOO IS ALL SET UP AND RUNNING HER CAMPAIGN. I MUST SAY HER FIRST BLOG WAS AMAZING. AUNT CAROL IS AN ENVIRONMENTALIST JUST LIKE MY MOM, SO I THINK WE WILL REALLY APPRECIATE HER CAMPAIGN.

NO SUNBATH TODAY, BUT WE DID GET A BIT OF RAIN LAST NIGHT. IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE SUCH A BIG STORM, BUT ALL WE GOT WAS .47" OF RAIN, AND WE GOT MORE THAN SOME AREAS. IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A WET WINTER FOR US, BUT IT JUST NEVER HAPPENED. **SIGH**

  Hi SweetPepper
9 inches is rare. We have gone 2-3 months with no precipitation. We are in a severe drought. When these storms are all through, the weatherman will let us know what the current stats are. We are well below normal. Bye bye

  Hi Sweetpepper
The gas guys turned off everything to do with the gas, so the building should be safe.
Congratulations to Flitzer, he makes a good looking king. Please remember to vote for Booboo this month, it will be another BC first to have a rare Bali Blue mynah in the castle next month, hahaha.
Here's March, coming in like a lion! We are getting a ton of snow today. Well, not really, but it's going to snow pretty much all day long. They are predicting 5" but if it keeps up it will be more. When mom walked the dogs, it was already about 4 inches deep, and, being Sunday, the plow hasn't hit the street yet. Mom may call off work at the museum if we don't hear that truck soon. She still has to shovel the driveway, too.
The news about the center is that it may take 4 to 6 weeks for the gas lines to be fixed. There will be no heat, other than space heaters, in the building, and no hot water. I guess the good news is that it is an electric dryer, so the laundry can still be done. They just fixed the huge washer, so laundry problems should go away this week.
Mom may work on her taxes today, especially if she doesn't go to work. Her one Coursera course finishes this week, the other 2 will still go on, so her evenings are pretty much occupied. I hope you are having a good day, staying warm, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco
