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
Today is another short blog, mom is working at the museum from 1 to 4, and really really has to do laundry. The bed linens, towels, and after yesterday's baking, the potholders and tea towels, as well as her clothes, well, it's just a mountain of laundry that needs done! She is planning to do that when she gets back from doing the Polar World touchables cart. At least she will be on the balcony today, and not in Polar World, where somehow the heat never seems to reach. So she'll be warm.
Mom was picking out an outfit for today, and got out a burgundy pants suit that she had made. When she put on the pants, she laughed and laughed! It is so old, the pants are wide bottomed! She ended up wearing the top, which she had edge stitched in gold, and it has gold star buttons on. But she chose khaki pants to go with it. Now the old pants are on the sewing machine. She's hoping to alter them sometime soon.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of scritchies and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

NO SUN AGAIN HERE. SHEESH! MOM IS JUST FAR BEHIND ON DOING THINGS THIS YEAR. SHE SAYS IT IS DUE TO NOT WORKING FROM HOME TWO DAYS A WEEK--SHE MISSES THAT A WHOLE LOT. SHE COULD THROW IN A LOAD OF LAUNDRY AND GET THAT DONE. MACHINE IS RIGHT OUTSIDE HER DOOR, SO THAT WAS ALWAYS NICE. BUT...THIS JOB IS A WHOLE LOT BETTER THAN WHAT SHE HAD, SO GUESS IT IS A TRADE OFF FOR BETTER PAY AND GOOD PEOPLE TO WORK WITH. AND IT IS A SHORT WEEK, SO SHE DOESN'T HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING TODAY AND TOMORROW. SHE CAN PUT OFF A COUPLE THINGS AND GET HER CARDS OUT INSTEAD.

NOT MUCH ELSE GOING ON. TIME FOR MOM TO PERCH FOR THE NIGHT...AND ME, TOO!

We are just relaxing this weekend. Nothing left to do for Christmas.
The weather people were wrong, we didn't see any sun today! Maybe it was at your house? Oh well, just a relaxing day for us. Put my feets up on the perch and enjoy some peppermint hot chocolate.

Mom printed out but on regular paper and it was ok so she is happy about that!
Mom has been working on this one baby afghan for a while. Tonight she decided it didn’t look right on the one side and kept looking at it and wasn’t happy. She tore out about 10 rows she had done so now she has a lot more on this afghan to do to catch up where she was. Mom said its best to tear it out when you see the problem then to keep going on it and eventually have to do that anyway. Its all single crochet stitches so a slow process too. “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)

  Hi Sweetpepper
mom was reading something very interesting today. a group of scientists from the netherlands have developed a mushroom that eats only plastic. they developed this to try and take care of the huge amounts of discarded plastics floating around in giant floating piles in our oceans today. most of the discarded plastics are from the united states.. the scientists say it will be many years of testing before they can determine if the plastic eating mushroom would be edible by humans. since many plastics are now used in shampoos and makeup mom had a disturbing thought. as a young girl in the 50s she saw a movie called attack of the mushroom people. it was about a group of travelers who had been stranded on this island with no food. they found these delicious mushrooms that staved off their hunger but the more they ate the faster they actually turned into mushrooms themselves. mom was terrified to eat any mushrooms for fear she would turn into one. now she has to worry if the mushrooms will attack her face because of the plastic in the makeup or attach themselves to moms hair because of the plastic in the shampoo. what if the plastic eating mushrooms form a gang and liberate the poor mushrooms grown on mushroom farms because they aren't being treated humanely. at least mom feels some sense of hope that some are trying to get rid of the huge piles of plastic trash and maybe being a mushroom might not be such a bad deal.

Sorry for the short blog today. Mom, her daughter, her sister, and her niece baked all the Italian goodies today, and did the peanut butter blossom cookies, too. Mom is totally wiped out, and it's nearly dinner time. She had hoped to do some laundry, but that's not gonna happen. Maybe tomorrow... Anyway I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of scritches. Hugs, Falco

THAT IS WAY TOO LONG TO GO WITHOUT SUNSHINE! WE ARE STILL TOO CHILLY TODAY FOR ME TO GET OUTSIDE, BUT IT IS SUPPOSED TO GET TO 73 TOMORROW SO I MIGHT GET A SUNBATH WHEN MOM GET HOME FROM THE GYM AT 12:30. THAT IS THE WARMEST PART OF THE DAY. THEN MONDAY AND TUESDAY IS SUPPOSED TO GET INTO THE UPPER 70s, SO IT IS SUNBATH TIME FOR SURE THEN.

THAT'S THE UPSIDE OF THE SUNNY WEATHER HERE. THE DOWN SIDE IS IT WILL BE WARM ENOUGH FOR MOM TO BE COMFORTABLE WITH TAKING ME OUT TO THE GROOMER. I SCRATCHED HER HAND JUST LANDING ON IT YESTERDAY, SO EVEN THOUGH NO BITES FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS, I AM STILL LEAVING MY MARK. GUESS IT IS GONNA HAVE TO HAPPEN.

MOM AND DAD DIDN'T GO FOR CHICKEN BOWL LAST NIGHT AFTER ALL. DAD HAD HIS WORK CHRISTMAS LUNCHEON YESTERDAY, AND HE BROUGHT HOME A BUNCH OF SCALLOPED POTATOES. THEY WERE SUPER GOOD, AND ALTHOUGH MOM LOVES THEM SHE HAS NEVER MADE THEM TO HER OWN SATISFACTION. SO WE ALL THREE HAD TATERS FOR DINNER. I LOVED THEM TOO.

THEN CHICKEN BOWL WAS LUNCH FARE AFTER THE GROCERY SHOPPING TRIP THIS MORNING. MOM SHARED HERS WITH ME, AND AS USUAL DAD STUCK HIS HEAD IN AND CALLED ME A CANNIBAL. I AM NOT A CHICKEN!! WHEN WILL HE GET THAT THROUGH HIS THICK HEAD!!

It was clean Chyna's condo day. I don't like that! I worked hard to get it that way.
At least we saw the sun again today! Looks like 3 more days of partial sun and then 3 days of snow. It will even snow on Christmas.
Better get the peppermint hot chocolate ready.

The sun has been hiding from us here too. Dont know where it went but sure hope it comes back again and soon!
Today mom was messing with making a card she has been working on for a while after she got her house work all done. Then this evening she decided to print out on this thinner paper with a saying on it. The first one came out fine but the second one got stuck in the printer! Mom worked for a good while and then dad came with all his tools to see what he could do with it. After about 3 hours dad got the paper out of the rollers and plugged back in. He ran one paper thru and it was a bit dirty and at this point mom isn’t about to even try it again!!

OH, YEAH, YOUR MOM WAS DEFINITELY BORN TOO EARLY. THOSE SKATERS ARE SO NEAT TO WATCH--MOM WOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO SKATE, MUCH LESS STAY UPRIGHT. I THINK THEY DO GET SOME DECENT MONEY IF THEY ARE GOOD. NEXT LIFETIME, MAYBE?

WE SURE HAVE HAD OUR SHARE OF ICKY GREY WEATHER HERE. WONDER WHEN THE SUN WILL COME BACK? AND I HEAR THAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO GET SNOW ON CHRISTMAS EVE. NOT A LOT BUT ENOUGH TO MAKE MOM SAY 'HOME'! I AM REALLY GONNA MAKE SURE SHE ASKS TO WORK FROM HOME WHEN SHE SEES HER BOSS ON MONDAY. I DON'T THINK A LOT OF FOLKS WILL BE IN THE OFFICE.

OFF TO GET SOME CHRISTMAS CARDS SIGNED AND ADDRESSED, SO WILL CYA TOMORROW.

WELL, SO FAR SO GOOD, I HAVE NOT DONE ANY BITING TODAY. AND YESTERDAY I DID GET TO SHARE LUNCH WITH MOM, BECAUSE WE ATE BEFORE I BIT HER. NEEDLESS TO SAY I WOULDN'T HAVE GOTTEN TO SHARE THAT WRAP WITH HER IF THE TIMING HAD BEEN DIFFERENT.

MOM JUST HAD AN ENSURE FOR LUNCH TODAY, SINCE SHE AND DAD ARE GOING FOR THEIR FRIDAY EVENING TAKE OUT AND CHICKEN BOWL IS THE PLAN. YIPPEE! ONE OF MY FAVORITES, AND MOM ALWAYS SHARES HERS WITH ME. AND THAT WILL BE LUNCH TOMORROW AS WELL, SINCE SHE CAN'T EAT MORE THAN HALF OF THE SMALL ONE. (DAD POLISHES OFF THE WHOLE LARGE ONE WHICH IS HALF AGAIN AS BIG AS MOM'S!)

MOM WENT TO THE GYM THIS MORNING, AND SHE WAS SO SWEATY AFTER SHE GOT HOME SHE REALLY NEEDED A SHOWER. HOWEVER I WAS CALLING HER SO PITIFULLY, SHE GOT INTO HER SUMMER BATHROBE (THE WINTER ONE IS RED, AND I HATE IT!) AND SAT WITH ME BEFORE HER SHOWER. THEN SHE CAME INTO MY ROOM AND FINISHED HER BOOK WHILE I TOOK A BATH.

SO I AM NOT DICTATING MOM'S BLOG RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE I AM ALL WET AND MY ROOM IS THE WARMEST ONE IN THE HOUSE. MOM DOESN'T WANT ME TO GET CHILLED, BUT I WANT HER TO COME SIT WITH ME. CATCH 22.

WE ARE EXPECTING THE WEATHER HERE TO REALLY WARM UP ON SUNDAY AND MONDAY. I AM HOPING FOR SUN TIME. I WILL KEEP YOU IN MIND IF I GET OUTSIDE. I WILL DREAM YOU BY MY SIDE, MY DARLING.

  Hi Sweetpepper
Well, we talked about climate change meaning hotter summers, and much colder winters, due to the moisture left in the air and such. That snow in Buffalo this year, you remember? That's a result of the warm weather over Lake Erie for too long. When it did get cold, all that evaporated condensed into snowflakes and dumped what? 7 feet, I think? Anyway, that's climate change... Expect lots of sunless and freezing days this winter as it was the hottest summer on record. That's science.
This morning mom went to the center as usual, and was assigned the squirrel porch and the squirrel pens. Needless to say, she had her new coat on, not thinking of working outside. So she hung up her coat and got one of the ghillie suit coats to wear while she worked. It was really cold outside, or she'd have gone out in just her sweatshirt. Haha, I bet the squirrels never saw her coming! She was disguised as a bunch of leaves, haha. There are 19 squirrels spending the winter outside this year.
After she got home her sister called her to go to the Italian store to buy food for Christmas eve. So, we are here after 3:30, just starting our blogs. At least Peppino went first, and his are done.
That's all the news for now too, so I hope you are having a wonderful day full of anticipation of Santa Bird coming to visit you, and being so very good. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Sweetpepper
well we got a light dusting of snow last night. it has melted everywhere else but our yard.

When the forest suddenly gets quiet and birds take flight, it might be time to worry about a brewing storm.

scientists stumbled on the finding when they were studying golden-winged warblers—small birds that weigh less than a third of an ounce. the team was testing if the birds could carry tiny backpack transmitters.The warblers are the smallest species ever tracked, and when the researchers retrieved the transmitters from five birds, they discovered something strange: The birds had all moved away from their breeding grounds a day before the storm, flying nearly 1,000 miles—even though the tornado was still hundreds of miles away.

The researchers think that the birds were sensing infrasound—acoustic waves that occur at frequencies below 20 hertz. While humans can’t hear such a low level of sound, it’s known that birds and other animals can.

is it time to fire the meteorologists and start looking to the sky for storm predictions? Not quite yet.“Birds are really good at predicting storms, but they’re not a good replacement for satellites and radar, There is one situation that birds could beat humans: “If you were all alone in the forest and all the birds left, you should be worried about it.”

When storms force birds to flee, it can put pressure on their ability to breed. As storms become more powerful and frequent with climate change, those disruptions will grow.“They wouldn’t do this with a normal thunderstorm, but if it comes to big storms arriving every year and birds losing four to five days of breeding season, it would be a big problem for their conservation,”
Golden-winged warblers have suffered one of the steepest population drops of any songbird species in the past 45 years, according to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Conservationists are working on a plan to stop the decline and grow the population 50 percent by 2050.

My skinsis and her boyfriend will be here for Christmas Eve dinner and then they leave for his parronts thru Christmas night. It will be just me and the parronts for Christmas day.
I saw the sun for an hour today. It made all the snow on the trees and ground look like crystals, very pretty. I don't know why it won't stay. The snow will be back for sure on Tuesday. I hope the sun comes back too. It stays away much too long!

The commode didnt leak all the time but just occasionally so was hard to detect too. Just glad its fixed now.
Mom thought she was going to get some things done here today but just when she got her cleaning done and started the next project skin sis called. She had went out to start her car to go to the store and it wouldn’t start so mom and dad went over with the battery charger. It started pretty quick and she left it run a while and went to the store and it seems ok. Think the problem was not running it for a while cause they were using BIL car. Mom did come home and did a few more things but the rest are on the list for tomorrow now.

  Hi Sweetpepper
Let's get our talons done for Christmas! I think I want Santa and reindeer on mine.
Today mom had 2 tours at the museum, one on climate change and biomes with 7th grade, and one with 6th grade called 3 Cultures. The one with the 7th graders was fun, it was interesting to mom to have 2 guys in the new docent class trailing her to see how to do them, too. (She hasn't had men chasing her for the longest time, hahaha.) The second tour had about 100 kids, which meant 10 docents and groups! The halls they visit for 3 cultures are close together, but small. They compare 3 desert cultures, ancient Egypt, Inuits (tundra) from about 100 years ago, and modern Hopi Indians. It's hard not to bump into other docents with their tour groups when the halls are so small and close together, but it's manageable if everyone is going in the same direction.
Anyway, mom is home now and will go out to dinner tonight with her sister. At least the tree and stockings are up and in place! Mom did that yesterday while she was waiting for the furnace people to call about Aunt Gin's house. They called her finally and set up another day, next Tuesday! GAAAAHHH!
I hope you are having a good day and getting some scritches and cuddles today. Hugs, Falco

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.

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

  Hi Sweetpepper
.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???
Hugs

  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

Love as usual, from Jenny & our Dallas family

  Hi SweetPepper
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!
Hugs
Chyna
My internet crashed on Sunday night after just a few votes/blogs. Monday is still fog and rain.

  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!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Sweetpepper
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)

  MY CHEWING DARLING
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.

YOUR BITING HUSBIRD,
KIDDO

  Hi Sweetpepper
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

  Morning my dear SP & aunt Teri, love from Jennifer
...hi lady, it is like our sun seems to have forsaken us, it is gloomy and overcast once again, with a good chance of rain, but it is warming up nicely! 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! Have a Greyt Monday, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow, dear ones...

Love always from Jenny & our Dallas family

PS~The Pack lost and the darn Lions won, Boo Hiss, our hapless Bears play tonight, but wait 'til next year, LOL... We do not like the Lions, they are braggarts and blow hards...
