  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
I hope you are having a great day! I hope your 4th was tons of fun! Ian told mom the fireworks went on here until midnight. At mom's work it went on until 4am! Ian told mom he went to check on me a few times and I fluttered! That means he woke me up!! It was nice of him to check up on me.
I am sorry I didn't get many notes out yesterday! Mom drove Jennifer down to her dads house. They decided to go to Olympia first because Half Price Books was having a half off sale. Ian said that made them Quarter Price Books!hahahahaha Anyway, you don't really want the Bad Mom in a bookstore because she will spend way too much time looking at the books while her adorable Sugar is home waiting for her! Merlin was locked up in the bedroom and I bet the Bad Mom forgot about that! The Bad Mom was gone for 3 hours! A trip down to Lacey (where Jennifer's dad lives) should only take 1 hour and 10 minutes! The Bad Mom bought 9 books and a reusable shopping bag for $4.17! Great bargain but the Bad Mom should have been home in 1 hour and 10 minutes!
Now mom tells me there is a Half Price Books in Tacoma and she wants to go check that store out! Tacoma is only 15 minutes away but after this fiasco I am not sure I can trust her to come right back!
It is still a billion degrees here and today it's suppose to be a billion and one! I think I have had enough summer now thank you! There are no fans or A/C left in any store around here! Guess everyone should have believed the Weather Channel when they said this was going to happen! Glad the Bad Mom did and got us extra fans! I'm staying cool!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's perfect!

  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! It was about a billion degrees here yesterday!!! Okay, it was 98 but it felt like a billion! We are really big babies when it comes to anything over 80! Guess it's going to be like this for the next week or so. Mom got the portable A/C out and Ian and Jennifer spent the entire evening on the sofa watching a silly show on HULU about people racing around the world. It thought it was pretty boring and nothing was blowing up either!!
When mom and Ian came up here to look for a place to live, about 20 years ago, they were having a heat wave and mom thought they were all being too dramatic. They lived in Mojave at the time and it would be 122 by 10am! Now mom understands! The cool weather was a huge selling point when they were looking for a place to move to! Dad was already working up here at the time. Just like with the snow, the heat happens up here every few years.
Mom is going to drive Jennifer down to her dad's house tomorrow so I am going to wish you a safe and Happy 4th today in case we don't have time for notes tomorrow. Mom is working through the weekend but Ian is off so he'll be here to take care of me and Merlin. Neither of us are bothered by fireworks but mom would never leave us alone anyway.
The gardeners are here now and trimming all the bushes. I guess they wanted to get an early start so they don't have to be doing it when it gets to be a billion degrees again!hehehe
Have a fabulous day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! I have had a nice day just hanging out with mom!
Well I have 5 new cousins! They are all canaries! Mom's sister took them in after their previous people decided to move to Eastern Washington and did not want to take them along. It's really not a very far move so I have no idea why they decided to let them go. There are 2 brown ones, a boy and a girl, and 3 yellow ones, 2 girls, 1 boy.
When mom's sister got them she saw that one of the little brown ones is sitting on a nest with 3 eggs! Guess that means I'll be having 3 more new cousins pretty soon. Mom's sister asked mom if she would like to have some canaries but mom doesn't know where we would put them and keep them safe from Merlin. Mom's sister has a second bedroom where the budgies and canaries live to keep them safe from her cat. I haven't seen a picture of them yet but I hope to soon.
We have had 8 days of temps over 85. We usually only have 10 for the entire year and it's only July 1st! Guess the weather channel was correct and it's going to be a hot summer here. I have been keeping cool by taking lots of showers. It helps with my molting too!
Enjoy the evening and I hope it is lots of fun!

I hope you are having a great day! It's nice here this morning and I'm snacking on some apples and almonds.
They opened up the firework stands yesterday so of course people were blowing them up last night. I think this is going to be going on for the rest of the week. You can actually buy fireworks up here year round because they sell them at the Indian Reservations. They are asking people not to blow them up this year because it's been dry and they are afraid of fires. I don't think anyone listened. Good thing for me is that they are not allowed in our complex. The noise doesn't bother me and I like the pretty colors it makes but it's nice not to have to worry about anything catching on fire.
Mom has one more night and then we have our weekend! I do not know what is planned but I hope we can watch a movie and have some popcorn! Popcorn by itself would be nice too!
Enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you had a great day. We had a quiet kind of day. Mom had some running around to do and then we had to get dad ready to go back out on the road. Mom grabbed all his stuff and put it on the dining room table so he wouldn't forget anything.
Once again we would like to thank every bird for their kind notes! We hope we can get more birdsonal notes done soon.
Mom went by and got Mandy's paw print from the vet today. It's just beautiful. She is going to get a shadow box and put it in there. That should keep it safe.
Mom is doing some rearranging also. We are just trying to keep busy and find our new normal.
Merlin has decided to be my best friend now. None of us realized how much he would miss Mandy. He has been trying to sleep by my play cage but I got down to the bottom and tried to bite him! He gets locked in the bedroom when mom leaves the house because she doesn't trust him or me!hehehehe
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  HI PEPPER
newsflash on the bad budgies. tonight while we were all running around in moms bedroom for playtime the bad budgies once again got into my toys. this time they were playing with the small plastic circles that fit over the plastic tubes. the bad budgie was fiercely pulling the circles off and flinging them everywhere. he flung one circle with great force and hit Piddy Girl right in the head. Piddy Girl made a small cry and flew to her cage. Paddy Cake is a very bad budgie.

I hope you are having a wonderful day! As some of you know, we lost Mandy yesterday. It's been so hard not having her here. She wasn't there to get me out of my night cage and I had no one to share my toast with.
She was ready to go. Mom never understood that until yesterday. When mom got home Merlin was curled up next to her with his head on her shoulder. Mandy had quit eating on Sunday and when mom sat down next to her yesterday morning she knew it was time. It was very peaceful and the vets office were so kind. They did a paw print on a clay heart for us as a memorial.
We are working on a new normal around here. It's still seems so strange not to see her on her blanket in front of my play cage.
Thank you all for your kind notes. We appreciate it so very much.
Enjoy the day!

I hope you are having a great day! It's pretty up here but not going to be very warm. I can live with that!
Mom suggested to Ian that he should put sunscreen on when he goes out but he is usually wearing a hat. He doesn't wear it to work but any other time he will have it on. He loves that hat! So far he likes having no hair. He told mom he was going bald anyway so he wants to see what it's like. He sort of looks like mom's younger brother now!
That cat showed up in the tree again last night! Mom thinks that the people who own it let it out when they get home from work because it was suppertime when it showed up. Mom hopes it doesn't make a habit of coming to visit Merlin everyday because the howling woke her up! It doesn't seem to be around during the day so I think mom is right!
The school buses are all coming home early today since it's the last day of school here. I am looking forward to a summer of Marco Polo in the pool!hehehehe

I hope you are having a great day!
We didn't get to watch a movie because dad was watching a show about making over bars! The man on that show yells a lot and there are tons of beeps when he is talking. I don't think that is a good thing! Dad got bored with it but iw as too late to watch a movie by then. Mom says we will find something and watch it early on Friday since she working.
Ian came out of the bathroom this morning and he had shaved his head!!! I let out a very loud "wooger" and got onto my corner perch. He was bald on the top and decided he would just shave off the hair and see if he likes it that way. He says it will grow back if he doesn't! It sure was a shock to me but I started laughing when he came to say hello to me!
The lady downstairs from us has a very old cat. She says it has dementia now and won't come in the house. It sits under my bedroom window and howls which gets Merlin up there and he starts howling too! Last evening Merlin was up there howling and dad said he would get him. He called to mom and said she had to see this! Mom looks out the window and there is an orange cat in my tree! It's not the one from downstairs. The cat kept climbing higher to get to Merlin so mom took Merlin out of the room and told the cat to get down. It climbed all the way to the top of the tree and got on the roof! It went to the other side of the building and climbed down.
Mom has seen the cat before and really doesn't like that the people let it out. There are lots of wild birds outside and since that cat is not afraid of heights, it needs to be kept inside so it can't get the birds! We live on a 6 lane road so it's not safe for the cat either! Sometimes Humans are so dumb!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a great day! It's been busy around here with drawer cleaning. Mom had to go buy more drawer liner. I've been doing my part by yelling and making a fuss when she is out of the room! I am the bird so it's my job to make lots of noise!
Mom is looking for new placemats but couldn't find any she liked. She is going to try Bed, Bath and Beyond tomorrow and see if there is something she likes there. Dad spilled something on the ones we had and destroyed them! We have had them for a long time so it was probably time to get some new ones anyway.
Since mom is off tonight instead of Friday night, we will do our movie night tonight. Don't know what we are going to watch but there will be snacks so you know I'll be there. She wanted to get Jupiter Ascending but it's not at the Redbox yet. We'll find something we like!

  Hi Pepper
i think sometimes the budgies hear noises that scare them or have bad dreams.

last night during the big rain storm one of the bird houses was knocked down from the tree. it is a nice bird house in the shape of a cats head and the entrance is the cats mouth with ll its teeth showing. the birds nest was a tunnel under all the grass it had gathered in the house. mom checked and there were no baby birds so mom figures a black snake got them during the storm and then knocked the house down. she put the house back up with fishing wore and hopes it holds.it was nice and steamy outside today. we could hear thunder all day long and you could even see in the sky what area the storms were. mom didn't want to put us outside because of the thunder and lightening. she didn't even know it was raining at one point until she felt the raindrops on her skin. this evening it has been non stop raining with only one thunderstorm rolling through.

No mom has not gotten up the spa, she isn't doing very well going up and down stairs, forget about carrying stuff with her on them.
I did get a shower on the divider of the kitchen sink, tho'. I really like that. Mom says I puff up like a softball, hehehe.

  Hi Pepper
thankyou for the compliment on my tennis shoes. they are so sparkly i can't take my eyes off of them.

sorry i haven't been on for a few days. moms been trying to catch up on things she had let slide, computer problems and doggie problems. yesterday mom gave Cori a shower outside with the hose it was in the 90s so mom wanted her to air dry outside. she held her with one hand while she pulled weeds with the other. after about an hour she still hadn't completely dried so she held her directly in the sun and made her flap her wings. while doing this some crows landed in a nearby tree and were yelling and mom figured they had probably spotted a hawk nearby so mom was glad she hadn't set me on the porch while she was distracted with Cori and the weeding. today it was rain on and off with sun shine and tornado warnings tonight with more rain. this morning I sat on the porch with Cori while mom read the sunday paper then mom took Cori inside and continued doing more weeding. she felt i was safer since she was weeding right by the porch. i was pretty quiet today while lots of birds were flying around in the yard.

its been raining steadily since dinnertime. the tv keeps saying go run to your cellar because of tornado warning but we don't have a cellar. anyway we aren't in the direct path. the sound of the steady patter of rain on the roof is very soothing

I hope you had a good day! It's been a very busy week here and today was no different. There always seems to be so much cleaning to do!
Mom, Ian and Jennifer loved Jurassic World. Mom wants to see Inside Out and Minions too but the others didn't seem interested. Mom will just go by herself if they don't want to go!
Mom did the marketing today and dad went with her. Not a good thing because dad just grabs stuff and never looks at the price! They did buy us a new food processor so we shall have grated carrots once again! The old one had a part that broke and Kitchen Aid does not make the model mom has anymore so we got a new one! This one is a Black & Decker since mom is mad at Kitchen Aid for not making replacement parts on a very expensive food processor!

  Hi Pepper
it was a beautiful day today. mom didn't get to take Cori outside because my frother and his girlfriend came by to help pull out some weeds so mom felt the need to work right along with them. Bit of course I got to stay on the porch since mom was working right by . tonight was a nightmare for Cori. mom decided to work on her lower beak which just keeps getting longer and longer. Cori put up quite a battle. mom finally jammed a pencil in her beak to prevent any more crushing bites to her fingers and keep her tongue out of the way. she got off about 1/4 inch which is a lot. then she trimmed the upper beak a little bit and told her she look beautiful. i am glad mom didn't start working on me

I had the best time on the porch and a beautiful blue jay even flew over to check me out but mom waved it away.it kind of scared me because it was so huge compared to me.

  Hi Pepper
HAPPY TGIF DAY
a branch fell and broke the ear off of a cement bunny statue in the yard so mom decided to fix it today. she bought this new glue called tiger bond that is suppose to fix anything. mom was holding the ear on the bunny waiting for it to set and she saw this huge spider come running across the porch towards her. the spider jumped on the statue and was about 1 inch from moms hand. mom tried blowing on it to make it leave and it stuck up 2 arms and waved at her. mom then picked up a cloth to remove the excess glue and tried to wave the spider away. when she picked up the cloth the ear fell off and the spider jumped right in the glue. mom grabbed the ear and quickly reattached it to the statue and the spider just sat there on the bunny. mom then tried to brush the spider off while she held the ear on but the spider wouldn't leave. mom then turned the statue upside down so the weight of the body would hold the ear in place. at that point the spider meandered away. there should be a warning on the glue that says spiders are really attracted to this glue.

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It was very pretty here and not too hot! It's suppose to get hot this weekend but it probably won't be too bad. There are big trees outside my bedroom window and it stays nice and cool in there.
Mom took a nap when she got home this morning. She took Jennifer to work and then went to the market and got some rice for us to share for lunch! It was good! Tomorrow she is taking Jennifer down to her dad's house. He has his heart valve replacement surgery yesterday and it all went great. He'll be out of it for a while and has to spend about 5 days in the hospital. Jennifer's youngest sister is up from Florida so Jennifer will get to see her.
After that mom will be home and we will have our weekend! We are still working on drawers and closets but there will be time for us to just hang out, which I love!

mom thinks there really must be something mentally wrong with her. she is now trying to go through 35 years of gardening things that are crammed in the garage. she wanted to get rid of a lot of things but she can't. its more like re-stacking and re-stacking and playing hide and seek with all the spiders. she managed to throw out a few plastic planters which she will probably have a need for in the future. she wouldn't have bought the stuff if she didn't like it so how can she throw it away now.

Q: Why does the bird bring toilet paper to the party?
A: Because he is a party pooper

I hope you are having a good day! It is a wet, windy and cool day here in the Northwest. It's going to be like this for the next few days and then Summer is coming back! I'm enjoying it.
Not much going on around here. We have the kitchen to clean up but that is an everyday thing. The 12 inches between the sink and the dishwasher seems to be too far for some people around here!hahahahahaha I will of course supervise and give mom my opinions on how the job should be done.

mom has decided to toss our grill. its over 8 years old and she can't figure out how to clean out the pipes and lost the instruction on it. she is afraid to use it for fear it will blow up.

it started raining here late yesterday afternoon and has been raining on and off since. everything looks so nice and green. mom likes the warm weather but dad is keeping the house cool and its making mom chilly so she goes outside to warm up. tonight mom thinks their was a coyote in our yard. all of a sudden she heard this loud howling and then it stopped and then nothing more. mom went outside to see and also get warm but there wasn't anything around that she could see. wonder if they are tracking those baby fawns?

  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
I hope you had a great day!
We got up to 82 and there were lots of people in the pool! We had our fire alarm inspection this morning and it lasted all of 30 seconds! The guy walked through the hall into mom's room and said thank you and left! They had the outside alarms going for a very long time. The gardeners were here too trimming the bushes outside my kitchen window so it was even louder! I tried to out scream them both but I just wasn't loud enough! Mom says she is very thankful that the inspection is only once a year!
Have a great night! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Pepper
Q: what do you call a bee who is having a bad hair day?
A: A Frizbee

mom put Cori in the lilac bush again and me in my outdoor cage.she noticed a big round thing laying in the yard. and walked over to inspect it. it was a birds nest laying there. it was very well made with twigs tightly woven on the bottom and the middle had plastic bubble wrap woven into hardened mud. on top of that were more tightly woven twigs. the nest itself wasn't damaged and must have fallen out of a tree. there were no egg shells or baby feathers or anything laying around it so hopefully no eggs had been layed yet or if they had it was long before it fell and everyone hatched and grew up.

  Hi Pepper
Oslo the Norwegian capital has inaugurated the world's first 'bumble bee highway' a corridor through the city with pollen stations every 250 meters.
“The idea is to create a route through the city with enough feeding stations for the bumblebees all the way,” ”Enough food will also help the bumblebees withstand manmade environmental stress better.” Bumblebees and other pollinating insects struggle in urban environments where there are few flowers rich in nectar, effectively starving them. flowerpots were placed on rooftops and balconies along a route from east to west through the city.

During the last few years, bees, bumblebees and other insects have suffered, with many colonies dying out, causing damage to agriculture that depends on the insects. Although Norway is not as hard hit as the US, six out of 35 Norwegian bumblebee species are close to extinction.

Oslo's municipality is co-operating with environmental organisations, the public, and and companies, who are asked to plant bumblebee friendly flowers on their property.To help the insects along, the organisation BiBy (Bee Town) has created an app, where the public can see the “grey areas”, long stretches with no food for bees, in order to encourage the planting of flowers in areas that don’t have nearby parks.
“It will be easy to see barriers and obstacles on the map. The goal is to inspire people to fill these gaps.”The public will also be able to upload pictures of their projects to improve the situation for bees and bumblebees, such as flowerpots and bee hotels.”Some bee species like to live in solitary rooms. They need small hollows like a crack in an old tree trunk. It’s very important to have some old wood lying around,”

  Hi Pepper
Bumble bees have a fuzzy body and are good pollinators and produce lots of honey. carpenter bees are not fuzzy but shiny and are very good at wood working especially on your house. group of aeronautical engineers decided to study the bumblebee. They measured its wingspan, computed body weight, examined its oversized fuselage and concluded that there was no rational reason why a bumblebee can take off or land safely. Of course, the bumblebee doesn't know this, so it goes ahead and flies anyway! there are
hundreds of true stories about folks who have done amazing things because they didn't know they weren't supposed to be able to do them. so live your life like a bee.

  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
I hope you had a great day too! It got cloudy and cooler here today so I don't think anyone is missing the pool. They painted it today and then put the lights and the filter covers back on. It is now ready for water when it dries.
Mom has to drive Jennifer down to her dads house tomorrow. The doctors have been checking him ever since he has the heart attack and found he has a leaky heart valve. He is going to have to have surgery to fix it and Jennifer is worried. Mom thinks it will be okay since they do so many of those kinds of surgeries. They haven't scheduled it yet but we keep him in our prayers everyday.
Mom went over to Costco today and it was very crowded. They had all the registers open so it really didn't take long to get out of there. She brought back some lovely blueberry muffins and Mandy, Merlin and I shared one! Yes, the cat likes blueberry muffins!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug for each of you!

  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
I hope you had a great day. Mine was pretty good. Mom was busy with chores and spent some time looking for recipes for veggies. She found some really great ones so it as time well spent.
The pool is still empty. The lights from the bottom are sitting along side it. They plastered it so I think now they have to smooth it out again and then paint it blue again. It was warm here today so I think everyone is anxious for that pool to be open!
I hope your evening is just perfect!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
I hope you are having a nice day! It's overcast at the moment but they have promised Sun and upper 70's today. I'm waiting!
The pool is still empty. They plastered it yesterday so I guess it has to sit for a while before they put water in it.
You have to go through the office building to get to the pool and the office is closed on holidays! It will probably open the day after Memorial Day. It makes some people very unhappy but it's always been that way!
Enjoy the day!
Love, hugs and votes for you both!
