KACEY CAME HOME IN GREAT SPIRITS AND VERY HUNGRY. SHE GAVE THE DR A TALKING TO BEFORE LEAVING THE BIRDIE HOSPITAL. THE FINAL DIAGNOSIS WAS A YOLK EMBOLISM. ITS JUST AS DANGEROUS AS PERITONITIS BUT WE WERE VERY LUCKY. KACEY'S BODY WAS ABLE TO ABSORB THE EMBOLISM AND NO DAMAGE WAS DONE. IT COULD HAVE BEEN SO MUCH WORSE. SHE WAS VERY CLOSE TO DEATHS DOOR YESTERDAY BUT YOU WOULDN'T KNOW IT TO LOOK AT HER TODAY. SHE DID LOOSE SOME WEIGHT BUT I EXPECT SHE WILL BE PUTTING IT BACK ON IN NO TIME. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PRAYERS.
APRIL 7, 2011 KACEY UPDATE
VET CALLED THIS MORNING AND SAID KACEY MADE A REMARKABLE COMEBACK. SHE IS EATING AND POOPING REGULARLY. VET IS KEEPING HER TILL LATE THIS AFTERNOON. WANTS TO GIVE HER ANOTHER ANTIBIOTIC INJECTION AND CALCIUM SHOT. KACEY IS TRULY A FIGHTER AND THE POWER OF PRAYER FROM ALL HER FIRENDS HELPED. THANK YOU.
APRIL 6, 2011 KACEY IS RUSHED TO THE VET. SHE HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH YOLK PERITONITIS, ITS WHERE AN EGG BREAKS INSIDE THE OVIDUCT CAUSING A BAD INFECTION. SHE IS ON ANTIBIOTICS AND OXYGEN. PLEASE PRAY FOR HER.

When my tiel Digger died suddenly in June of 2005, the breeder who I got SweetPepper, my sennie from had a special needs tiel. She called us and asked if we would take care of a young tiel who needed some special care. We said yes and Kacey came to live with us in August of 2005 at age 3 mos. She had no tail feathers, she couldn't fly and was very klutzy. We fell in love with her and here she stayed. She was gift to help with the loss of Digger. She isn't a replacement for Digger, but having her helped with his loss. Kacey still has trouble flying, she now has short tail feathers, and we love her dearly. HATCHDATE: May 20, 2005======

  Hi Kacey
our precious loving and caring little fister,
This morning was a dark,gray,dismal dreary rainy day with the temperature highs of 53 and the lows of 38. Mom got the three of us all fed and cleaned,swept our room and then she got my dad some breakfast and then after a few more quick pick ups around the house my dad took her to Nana's where she met skin bro and Mom helped Nana get her shoes and socks on,and skin bro got her down the two steps out into the garage and into her car.Mom folded up the walker and skin bro put it in his trunk and they went to the surgeons office.When they got there all the employees were outside and the fire alarm was going off,then the fire engines came and they went into the building so Mom ,Nana and skin bro waited out in the parking lot for awhile,Nana was supposed to be there at 12:45pm but by the time the fire engines left it was after one.Skin bro drove up to the front of the building and he helped get Nana out of the car and Mom got her walker and they went into the building while skin bro parked the car.They had to wait another 20 minutes or more until someone came back into the office and then the receptionist gave Mom five pages of info that needed to be filled out,she helped Nana fill them out and then she had to go down and get another x-ray taken then after that she got seen by the surgeon.Nana is healing nicely and she has another appointment to see him on May 6th for a 6 week check up.Mom finally got the script for the Tramadol!Then from there they went to DQ which finally opened up in Falmouth and they all had a Blizzard,skin bro had a grasshopper mousse,both Mom and Nana had one with all fruit in it.Nana was hankering for some Honey Dew donuts and skin bro drove to Cotuit to the shop there and they made some Barvarian cream donuts up fresh for Mom as those were Nana's favorite so they got a dozen donuts there while Nana waited in the car,then they went to Stop&Shop to get some bananas and salad mix.It was pouring rain hard while they were out and Mom was so cold from getting wet in the rain.They went back to Nana's and skin bro got Nana safely back into the house and Mom made coffee for everyone and they had a donut and coffee,shortly after that skin bro took Mom home as it was well after 5:30pm and Mom still had to go home and make dinner for my dad.When Mom got home everyone fairly much ate but Dixie didn't touch any of his food at all,he didn't even eat the animal cracker that dad gave us all for a snack.Mom tried everything to get him to eat and he refused.Nana told Mom to take Dixie with her tomorrow when she comes there to help with the trash,Dixie always eats there and he may be missing his time with Nana and the car ride.
Oh how wonderful Aunt Teri got to have a nice birthday dinner out with her sister and a friend.That grasshopper really sounds good,Mom used to love those when Nana made them!Now that really sounds good pound cake with strawberries and cool whip!Yummmmmy!We are all so happy t

  Hey Kacey and SweetPepper,
I need your help buddy. I've asked King Flitzer if we could use the Castle grounds to hold a Celebration of Life in Little Mario Adlers name.

He says okay so I will need some help with the decorating.

Can you and your flock give us a wing?

I'm gonna be asking more friends for help in making this a nice memorial for Mario Adler, Dixie's lil frother.

Pookie bows and says the Castle Ballroom it is!

Can you help spread the word for us?

Mom only has her phone thingy and its a little slow at times.

I'd really appreciate all the help we can get.

Mario was a sweet sweet little guy and he will be sorely missed, especially by me and my flock.

I'll gather some friends and well decorate the ballroom.

Thank you so much again for all your help and for letting us use the Castle Ballroom.

We just hafta spread the word so that no one gets left out.

Sending big birdie hugs and a vote.

We want to hold it this coming Sunday.

Love,

Pookie, Laka Aolani and Angel Sallykins

  Hi Kacey
Bald Eagles are nesting on all three of Pittsburgh's major rivers! Who knew the day would never come when Pittsburghers would be cheering for the Eagles…Bald Eagles, that is!

It has probably been more than 250 years since Bald Eagles last nested along Pittsburgh’s three rivers. In the 18th century, suitable nesting habitat in the form of mature tall trees was stripped from the hillsides flanking the rivers to meet the lumber and fuel demands of a rapidly growing human population in the area; second, industrialization beginning in the 19th century led to extensive unregulated pollution of the rivers, which decimated fish populations that eagles feed on; third, beginning in the mid-20th century eagles (and many other birds) showed signs of succumbing to the unintended side effects of widespread use of the pesticide DDT (developed for use in World War II) which eventually caused chronic nesting failure for the species. As recently as the mid-1980s, there were just a few remaining nesting Bald Eagles pairs anywhere in Pennsylvania, all of these in the northwest corner of the state.
One nest, located on the Monongahela River in the community of Hays is the most famous because a web camas been set up to view the nest. millions of people are viewing the nesting activity. Last year this pair successfully raised three eagle babies. this year they only layed 2 eggs. one of the eggs had a crack in it and the mom tried to keep it together but when the dad eagle came to sit on the egg he saw the crack and threw the egg out of the nest. during a recent snowstorm the mom eagle was totally covered in snow while incubating the single egg
The Bald Eagle,has made a tremendous comeback throughout its range in the lower 48 states. Its recovery is due to enforcement of federal laws protecting it from persecution, the banning of DDT, which bio-accumulated in eagles and other piscivorous (fish-eating) birds, eventually causing complete reproductive failure through the thinning of their egg shells to the point that eggs simply broke when parent birds tried to incubate them; passage in the same year of the federal Clean Water Act, and, direct recovery measures taken by our Game Commission, which brought nestling Bald Eagles from healthy populations to hacking sitese when the state’s breeding population was down to just a few nesting pairs. Similar efforts by game agencies in surrounding states also have contributed to the rapid increase in the number of nesting Bald Eagles in Pennsylvania. By 2000, there were about 50 known nesting pairs of eagles in the state; as of 2012, more than 200 nesting locations are known for Bald Eagle in Pennsylvania, including nests in almost every county!

  Hi, Kacey
We know it'll take Angel Mario's flock and family time to adjust to him being gone. However, we know he's with Angel Gabbie and all the other angel birds and that he's whole and healthy again.

Forecast for a warm up in our area. Yesterday was low 70s and supposed to reach 80 today or tomorrow. Hopefully it doesn't last and goes back down as being in the 80s in spring is just too warm. No real rain in sight. Think some areas might get sprinkles.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hey Kacey,
Well today mom took off the poncho so I could preen myself and was doing a good job till I started to pick at my boo boo. Then mom put the poncho back on and said that I couldn't be trusted. I says hmfff!!! To that !! :(

I hope the vet has better news for me this time around. I need some good news as I'm getting very very frustrated with this poncho on all the time. :(

Here's a vote for you my dear sweet friend, who has more patience than me. :)

  Hey Kacey,
Mom let me preen today but I kept going to pick at my Boo boo so mom put the poncho back on me.

But hey I tried my bestest not to pick my boo boo. I was just trying to preen my poor poor feathers that haven't gotten any attention since I had the surgery. Shish, give me a break!

So that was my day today, only partially preened. Maybe mom will let me preen myself again tomorrow then I can finish the other half of my body? I wonder? :)

Here's a vote for you, hope you had a great big birdie day. :)

Love & hugs,

The half preened Pookie

  in after all the grueling workouts they do with her.Aunt Teri is right and Mom isn't going to let them leave until she gets the prescription for them.
Mom has seen those exercise balls at the gym and they do come in different sizes,the next time Mom goes there,who knows when now,she will try and see if she can work out on them.They do look quite interesting.Mom has never been able to check out the weight bars she was getting into all that when everything started happening here with Nana and skin sis.Aunt Teri sounds like my Mom,she loves to work with the heaviest weights she can manage,she feels she's getting a better workout that way!

  Hi Kacey
our precious loving sweet caring little fister!
This morning was another bright sunny morning with the high's of 43 and the lows of 35,its 37 right now.Mom got us up early and fed us and then did a major clean up of our room.She cried the whole time having to look at Mario's empty cage and all his things in it. I think she washed his cage more with her tears than with the soap and water and Poop Off she was working with.After she scrubbed every inch of his cage she took it out of our room because Kallie wouldn't stop trying to sit on it.Mom moved it out to the spare room in the front of the house and shut the door so she wouldn't have to be reminded of it and not ever going to see Mario again.Candida kept making these loud mournful sounds which only made Mom cry more.And on the whole we were all very quiet today,we didn't even call out for our late day snack.Mom left shortly after she vacuumed and washed our bird room floor.Dad took her to Nana's so she could help her and dad fixed Nana's mailbox which had completely fallen over.While dad went to the hardware store to get some lag bolts to fix the mailbox with,Nana had Mom call in some nachos for their lunch.Skin sis and skin bro came down and so did the VNA to give Nana a shower the first one since she came home.The VNA thought that skin bro did a wonderful job of installing the hand held shower and it really felt good to Nana to have a nice hot shower.After the VNA left Mom and skin sis went down to Bobby Burnes to pick up the nachos and all five of them sat and ate together.Mom cleaned up the kitchen and then they left shortly afterwards so Nana could get some rest.Nana will be seeing the surgeon tomorrow so Mom will be back to bring her there with skin bro.When Mom and dad came home,the house was very quiet,we all usually yell out to her when she walks through the door,she panicked when she called out to us and we didn't answer her back.So she ran into our room fast.We just have been in a very quiet mood lately,missing our frother,Mario and wondering just why he's not in his cage beside us anymore.Oh how wonderful that GPA built the little coffin box for Maxi,what a wonderful idea and to have him be resting beside Aunt Teri's brother in the cemetery is just the best ever,he will never be alone.Oh how awful that must be to not be able to bring Digger and the four budgies back home with Maxi so they all could be together.Mom has had to leave the budgies she had in her old house in Marshfield,you never think of these things until way later when you can't ever go back and bring them home with you!We are only soo happy to know that Mario is flying free with our frothers Maxi and Digger.I just know he'll be having a greyt time with them flying everywhere,just like Gabbie is!You are so right that its hard to lose a feathered baby!
Nana's surgeons appointment is tomorrow and Mom is going to ask him first thing about the Tramadol,Mom really wants Nana to have those pain pills for the pain she'll be

  Hi Kacey
HAPPY HUMPDAY
OBSERVING NESTS (PART2) from yesterday

7)Search carefully: It is critically important that we avoid damaging nest sites. Nests that have yet to be discovered are particularly vulnerable. When searching for nests, move slowly through dense foliage, being careful not to dislodge any nests. The nests of ground-nesting birds, such as Killdeer, Ovenbirds, Bobolinks, and many waterbirds, are difficult to see, so tread lightly and be cautious around potential ground-nest sites.
8)Be wary of nest predators: Avoid leaving tracks that can direct predators to nests. Nest predators are everywhere—on the ground, in vegetation, and in the air—and many are smart enough to watch you, so be careful that predators such as cats are not following you! Also try to not damage or trample vegetation that could expose nests.
9)Minimize disturbance at the nest: It is important not to startle a bird as you approach the nest; this may cause it to accidentally knock out eggs or young when it flies off. Before approaching the nest, try to see if a parent is sitting on it. Whenever possible, wait a few minutes to see if the bird leaves on its own. If they do, this is the ideal time to check the nest. If a sitting bird does not leave on its own, do not force it off the nest. In this case, you will need to come back later. Remember to keep each visit brief.
10)Never handle birds or eggs in the nest: Eggs can be easily cracked or small nestlings injured, and there is no reason to touch these fragile younglings, despite how cute they may look. Small nestlings are remarkably helpless and may not be able to crawl back into the nest cup if displaced, even inside of a nest box. Children observing nests should always be under the supervision of an adult.
11)Don’t leave a dead-end trail: If you plan on visiting the nest frequently, try to take a different route away from the nest site than the route you took to reach it. Walking to the nest and back along the same path leaves a dead-end trail that can lead predators directly to the nest.

  Hi Kacey
We've been voting every day, trying to make sure everybirdie gets at least one vote.
Today mom has a tour at 11:20, so I'm going first in the blogs, as she thinks I can finish mine before she has to leave. I don't know if that's true, but I'll try.
Mom's dinner party at Uncle Gene's went well last night. They all had a good time, and Gene cooked some good food for everyone. Mom loves seeing her nieces and nephews, so she was glad there was one of each last night. They also told mom they would be here for Easter dinner, which is spectacular news. Maybe that means Aunt Gin will come for dinner, too. That would be a real treat.
I think once the tour is over and the blogs done, mom will be at our disposal the rest of the day. I'm sure we can keep her busy, what do you think?
Have a wonderful day, and hope spring is getting to your house soon. Hugs, Peppino and Willie

  Hi, Kacey
We are devastated to learn of Angel Mario's flight to the Rainbow Bridge. Just a day or so ago it was reported that he was eating well and seeming doing fine. We know he was well cared for and loved and will be missed and never forgotten.

Only got a tad bit of rain here. Might see a bit of sprinkling but nothing near enough to help us out of the drought. Temps have been mild (upper 60s) but think it'll be going up a tad to the low 70s which is nice for spring.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Kacey,
Well the new picture is of moms new coverall creation but it didnt quite fit as well as she thought it would so back to the drawing board.

They didnt have Bat Man fleece material that mom was looking for at the material store.

So she will try again with the fleece camo material for my PJs.

Mom did take off my cone but watched me like a hawk saying if I pick at my boo boo the cone goes back on. And sure enough I was picking so the cone went back on. :(

Mom says I couldn't be trusted, shush I can't get a break can I? :(

The vet said that I would always have that bald spot under my wing so I think it's gonna be a permanent scar. :(

She says the feathers won't grow back over there. That's not good. :(

That means I might always pick at it which means a permanent cone! Argh !!!

Here's a vote for you. I'll let you know what the vet says after my visit on Saturday.

Love & hugs,

Pookie

  d too long tonight.Mom has to deal with cleaning out his cage in the morning and she couldn't even bury Mario as the snow is still too deep and the ground underneath is too frozen to even try to dig up.Mario will be resting in the freezer until the winter goes away and we can put Mario in his final resting place.
We can't believe that you are getting all that snow now!Its time for it to leave!Its time for summer to get here and the flowers to start growing.Our crocus's must be under all those mountains of snow still,I hope they are and that they're not frozen.Its good that Aunt Teri didn't go out in the snow,it isn't worth it getting in trouble or getting stuck in it!That ball looks really interesting but Mom isn't sure she would be able to do that one as those balls are so huge,Mom doesn't think she can touch the ground!Please tell Aunt Teri to be careful with the treadmill and to not work her legs too hard!That sounds like a wonderful day to have your amazing Mom spend with her sister on her Birthday!We sure do hope that Aunt Teri gets a really special cake too!What's her favorite kind of cake?Mom loves the rum cake as long as its made the right way!We can't wait to hear what kind of cake Aunt Teri got!We are all wishing her to have the bestest birthday celebration ever,she so deserves it for all she's done for everyone including us and our Mom!

It was another bright sunny but cold morning,with the highs of 34 and the lows of 25.Both my Parronts got up early at 7:00am and got dressed and Mom was going to leave us til she got back from helping dad drop off her car,but as they were leaving skin bro was already in the driveway so my dad told Mom to stay home while he and skin bro dropped Mom's car off.Mom went back into the house and cleaned our cages and fed us but our frother Mario wasn't really feeling good so Mom just picked him up and gave him a kiss on his little tiel beak and told him she'd be back to give him some snuggles when she got home,but that never happened.By the time Mom came home Dad met us in the garage with a bag and Mario was in it.Dad had checked on us earlier and we were fine and then in the late afternoon he went to give us our snacks and found Mario on the bottom of his cage.Mom is so upset right now.She doesn't even feel like doing anything else.She feels that maybe she should've done more for Mario,taken him with her or spent a little more time with him.
When skin bro came back with my dad from dropping Mom's car off at the repair shop,Mom got right in his car and they went to Nana's.They all had some breakfast there and some tea with Nana and then Mom vacuumed Nana's whole house,her bird room,bedroom,hall and living room and kitchen.Then the PT VNA came and put Nana through another grueling workout with her legs.She brought resistance bands with her and Nana did both strengths and told the PT person that they were easy to do so she gave Nana the harder of the two bands to work out with.After she left,Nana whispered how bad her legs ache right now!Then skin bro and Mom took off to find Nana a hand held shower head so she can start having showers instead of the sponge bath thing.So skin bro drove them to WalMart and they found one there and they ran one errand for Nana and then skin bro went to West Falmouth Market and bought all three of them a Gobbler sub,(turkey,stuffing,cranberry sauce)and they went back to Nana's and ate together.Then skin bro installed the new shower for Nana and Mom helped him and he did really greyt.The one mistake they made was forgetting to put the washers inside so when skin bro turned the water on to test it it leaked from the top where the connections were so he had to take everything apart and do it all again but they finally got it right.Now when the VNA that comes to give Nana a bath tomorrow,Nana will be able to have a shower and use her shower seat.My dad worked on the TV room ceiling all morning after he got the car back,he had to walk up to get the car and it only took him 25 minutes so now Mom has a new battery,new tires and an alignment so she's good to go.The TV room ceiling looks so much better without having to look at all those big brown stains from the snow and rain.Mom is feeling a little bit down and still crying over losing Mario so please forgive us for not hanging aroun

  Hi Kacey
RULES TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN OBSERVING NESTING BIRDS
OBSERVING NESTS (PART1)
1)Nest visits shouldn’t last much longer than 1 minute: Please exercise extreme caution and responsibility when searching for nests to ensure the safety of birds, nests, and nest contents; observations of nests should never jeopardize the well-being of birds!
2)Don’t check in the early morning: Most birds lay their eggs in the morning, so plan on visiting nests in the afternoon. Also, most adults will temporarily leave the nest when you are near, and eggs and young nestlings can become cold quickly if left alone in the morning.
3)Avoid nests during the first few days of incubation: If necessary, observe nests from a distance and approach only when the female leaves the nest.
4)Do not approach nests when young are close to fledging: When the young are disturbed during this stage, they may leave the nest prematurely. Young that fledge prematurely usually do not stay in the nest despite attempts to put them back, and their survival rates away from or outside the nest are low. So when young birds are fully feathered and very alert, only observe the nest from a distance.
5)Avoid nests during bad weather: If it is cold, damp, or rainy, postpone checking nests until another day. Checking nests during this time can be very stressful for birds.
6)Don’t check nests at or after dusk: Females may be returning to the nest for the night, and be alarmed by your presence. The exception to this would be owls, which typically leave the nest at dusk.
i hope you are finding these facts interesting

  Hey Kacey
My parront's came back from Vegas yesterday at 5AM.
My mommy was so tired she slept all day and all night.
They had an awesome time and didn't lose any money playing on the slot machines. They came up a little bit but not a lot. The main thing was they had so much fun and they didn't have to spend a lot of money !!!
The skin sibs took good care of us and we played a lot.
We had fun too !!!
Today's going to be hot and by this weekend we are expecting a major heat wave YUCK !!! How's your weather treating you ??? I hope good !!!

Have an awesome day
Love your buddy

  Hi, Kacey
Over three hours of the snow coming down? Yikes! Good to stay off the slippery roads. Guess even if careful have to worry about other cars too getting out of control. What an awful feeling that must be.

Continues mildly spring here. Got a tiny bit of rain yesterday morning. If didn't see it would never know by the afternoon all was dry and clear.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hey Kacey,
Thanks mom bought 2 different kinds of Camo material. The outter one is a Cotten blend so that its kind stiff and the inside one is of a soft warm fleece type of material.

She made several different styles so it depends on my picking and how fast I can get out of it.

She put Velcro to fasten the ends, I'm working on taking that Velcro off.

She might make me a PJ one but thinks I'll just take it off when she's sleeping.

Now would I do a thing like that? Pookie gives his mom his best "angel" look. :)

Thanks for the support I really appreciate it.

I've got a ring around my neck from the plastic satellite dish.

Mom shoulda made this for me earlier. Hmmmmf says Pookie.

Here's a vote for you.

Love & hugs,

Pookie in Camo duds

  Hi Kacey
It seems that birds may not be as faithful to their mates as we’ve been led to think.The use of DNA by scientists has provided new food for thought to people who had assumed that most birds were faithful to their mates, if not for a lifetime, at least for a single breeding season.

It turns out that there is more hanky-panky going on in the back fields and woodlands of the country among birds than anyone could imagine. DNA studies of songbirds have shown that among any four baby birds in a single nest, it is typical that only an average of two are the creation of the parent birds that are raising them. The other two nestling have either a different father or mother, or both. In other words, it is a common practice among songbirds to copulate with birds other than their mates, thus producing broods of nestlings with mixed parentage.

Not Every Partnership Lasts The Season
Divorce is also common among birds, particularly in birds of prey. If a mated pair of hawks, for example, is not successful in producing a brood of youngsters, an avian divorce often arises and one or the other will seek another mate.

Some birds that are faithful to their mates.Although there are a few exceptions, parrots are monogamous breeders which nest in cavities and hold no territories other than their nesting sites.The pair bonds of the parrots and cockatoos are strong and a pair remains close even during the non-breeding season, even if they join larger flocks. Eagles, some Owls Geese, Swans and some seabirds are uncommonly faithful, often for life. Indeed, true love does seem to exist in the bird world, though it is hard to find.

  Hi Kacey
Thanks to all who came by the KB with hugs, chest bumps, and kisses over the past 2 weeks. To borrow Raffi's phrase, time just flew by! Thanks also for bringing stuff for the pot luck dinner yesterday, that was a lot of fun.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles, scritches, and good weather. (It's still cold here, but sunny today at least.)
Hugs, Willie and Peppino

  Hi Kacey,
Thanks for liking my new duds, its so much more comfortable than the hard plastic dish. Plus mom made a few so I can change it if it gets dirty.

Well my visit to the vets was not as good as I had planned.

I got more meds and I hafta keep the satellite dish on a little longer.

It will feel like forever now!! :(

I am not a happy camper to say the least. But at least mom made me a material satellite dish so I don't hafta wear that plastic thing!

It's a little more comfortable but I still don't like it. :(

Here's a vote for you, hope your day is going better than mine.

Love & hugs,

Poor Pookie in camo

  also!Poor GMa wanting to spend the time with your sweet Mom at home but like she says,she'll have to do all the work and cleaning up after so who wants to do that on one's birthday?GMa will be going out with her friend the day before so she should be having a greyt time celebrating with her friend then for her friends birthday!My Mom and Nana do the same thing here whenever there's a birthday.They usually pick up a cake ahead of time and keep it in the freezer until the birthday comes and just take it out so they don't have to keep trying to find a good one at a good price.It will be so awesome that you are going to be able to celebrate your amazing Mom's birthday on Thursday with her with a delicious meal and the cake too!
Oh we just know how wonderful a photographer Aunt Teri is,we just love everything she does and we think she's the best ever!Mom and all of us just can't wait to see the pics of the buds she'll be taking once all this snow ever goes away!Mom is still hoping to see her crocus's in the flower garden which is still buried under mountains of snow,they should've been out by now and all the leaves from the tulips and lillies should be starting to come up also!
We all so hope that you don't get that snowfall,even 3 and a half inches is way too much to have to deal with for spring!Oh would my Mom just love to be there with your awesome Mom to go to the gym and work out,she hasn't been there in over a month now and probably won't get to go back until after Shiloh has her surgery,maybe not until the fall sometime.Please tell that awesome Mom of yours to be very careful out there in the snow!Be safe and keep warm!We love you all so very much!
We're sending prayers for healing and comfort and peace from pain for your wonderful Mom,for healing and peace from pain for GPa,for GMa and SweetPepper and you our wonderful loving little fister for healing and continued good health!Nana,skin Sis and skin bro all send you their love along with prayers for healing and comfort from pain as do Mom and Dad and all of us here,especially me(Dixie)they mean so much to me!And Mario too!

  Hi Kacey
our precious sweet loving and caring little fister!
Mom was so tired last night that she was starting to fall asleep right on the computer,so she went over to the couch thinking she'd take a break for a while and when she woke up it was 3:30 in the morning and the tv was still on,we(Dixie and Candida) were both sleeping with her too!Mom just felt so relieved to be able to talk to your sweet wonderful Mom. Aunt Teri is an angel and we don't know where Mom would be now without her,Mom and all of us just can't thank her enough for always being there and caring the way she does.We really think it made a huge difference and took a big weight off her shoulders.
This morning was a freezing cold morning but at least the sun was shining brightly,not warming anything but at least it was cheery.Our highs for the day will be 32 and our lows will be 22 and right now its 25 and the wind is still blowing out there.Mom called Nana this morning to ask her what she'd like her to do today and Nana was waiting on one VNA to come between 9:00 and 10:00am and she was already an hour and a half late.She finally came and did some blood work and checked Nana's BP and found it was up so they upped the cumadin again,so she has to take more of that,the hospital had lowered it now the VNA raised it again.Nana was probably anxious because the VNA was late and never called her to tell her she was going to be late.She's getting another VNA around 12:00-12:30 this afternoon and Nana told Mom to take another day to catch up with what she has to do at the house.Nana told her that she really doesn't have to come over everyday,she's fine and skin bro will be there.She told Mom to come tomorrow and Mom can do some vacuuming in our cousins room and in Nana's bedroom where Trixie sleeps.Mom calls Nana several or more times a day to make sure she's all right and not needing something.And she calls her late at night to say good night to her.
Mom is the same way,she can't eat anything in the morning til sometime after 10:00am.And having breakfast for dinner is much better than having it at its usual time!Mom loves rice krispies also and Crispix and she likes the cheerios peanut butter ones.
Both Nana and my dad's family had one of those Hoover vacuums,they were both the ball kind canisters and they were both well over 30 years old before they died out on them.Mom had gotten a new upright Hoover and that didn't even last 4 years before something burned out on it and it would cost more to get it fixed than to get a new one.Right now both Mom and Nana have Meile vacuums,canisters and the one thing Mom hates about this vac is that she goes through too many bags in it,she likes the bagless vacuums. Oh and you're so right about those Hoovers being so noisy and heavy.
How awesome that Aunt Teri's sister is taking her out to eat Wednesday!We hope she gets to go to a very special place as she's such a very special and loving person!We only wish we all could be there to help her celebrate

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

  Hi, Kacey
We are about 50 minutes south of the San Francisco Zoo. Mom went to the San Diego Zoo as a kid and knows it is even more spectacular now but hasn't been back. She took skinsis to Disneyland and CA adventures years ago (tagged along with her parronts who were attending a convention nearby) but dad was unable to get off work to accompany 'em. Lots was the same, lots was different from her childhood.

More snow? Yikes!

Yup, we just left the Milonga page a lil while ago with our Mon morning votes. Seems like a few more birds found their way to the page.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.
