Good morning friendlies
My mom and I took our Grey to the vet yesterday, to get him tested for Beak and Feather Disease. She says if by Monday we haven't heard anything, we should give 'em a call to check.
Now I have to brag a bit. We had to transport him in a pet carrier, and he was sweet as pie about climbing in by himself! And he was quite happy being in it. He talked to us on the way there, and even uttered a few words while the vet was busy with him. As his wings aren't clipped (we don't let him out), he took flight a few times, but was sweet about stepping up and allowing us to hold him with one hand over his back. Didn't even try to bite. And he cuddled with my mom (she's his favourite). He climbed up her shirt and sat near her shoulder, against her body. And later on he did the same with me. The vet is also going to have him sexed, since she had to draw blood anyway for the PBFD test.
Upon arriving home, it took only seconds to get him to climb out of the carrier into his cage. He was a little nervous, but didn't stress too much.
He's just amazing, and doesn't seem to mind travelling. And it was heavy traffic on the way there.
[/end brag] LOL
That's sweet, Ruby ... no brag, just fact ... Hearts, FC <3 ...

Well good little bird! Glad to hear that. I do suspect him really is a him. Experience tells me that (like most animals) girls like boys and vicy versy.
So latching on to you and Mom is a good clue.

Dog gone, I hadn't heard about all that. That area seems to have it's share of problems. Personally, I can understand the distress of the ol folks be they native or transplanted.
I resided in Eustis from 89-99 ...it appears the tri-countys problems have only worsened since then. I was out on 44 recently on my way to 75 at Wildwood and I saw where a giant swath of land has been cleared for expansion of the Villages out to 44 ...or so I was told. The laid back farming/cattle communities of yesteryear are gone. The more lucrative shopping mall and rv/retirement park seem to be the rage. Anywho ...if it's green some developer will mow it down in favor of concrete and asphalt.
Yep, that's the way it goes. Even the gov gets in on the act. Orlando thinks it needs a soccer field.(WOO_PEE!) So they bulldoze down a neighborhood. Okay it was kinda a slum, but not the point. There's a church there. Tough, eminent domain!! cries the city, screw you, build a new house.
Well, a new one will cost over 35 mill. Property, construction et al. So the city offer much less. Like 2.5
Did I forget to mention they want to raise taxes for the field?
Did you know that the Federal Reserve has absolutely NOTHING to do with the federal gov.?
Created in 1913 on Captive Island, Ga.by very rich bankers to control the world economy. It's Truue!

It's going to snow every day for the next week.
I think I'll start drinking right now.
Hope everyone had a good week and will have a nice weekend.
2nd date with nice lady, Liann tomorrow.
Going to the Boston Aquarium. They did a huge upgrade over the summer and I'm looking forward to seeing it, I've never been there.

My parents, sister, brother-in-law and their daughter are all going to the stable yard today. They're having a "Cowboy day" - It's basically a day filled with horse-related games (mounted). I've never participated in it, I don't have the confidence in myself to do it. But being a spectator (and taking nice pics) is just as much fun. It's another scorcher today, so we have to remember our sunscreen and hats!

Hope everybody's having a good weekend so far

You should at least try......

I'm not a very good rider (in my opinion) and I can't just hop on and off a horse the way the other people do it. They make it look so effortless and easy. And it's better for me to sit on the sidelines than it would be to participate. Maybe one day when I don't care so much what other people think. I know, I know, it shouldn't matter but I'm weird like that.

Besides, I feel like I'm too heavy to ride, and feel extremely guilty whenever I do ride, because I'm so heavy.(And it's not all that comfortable now)

Losing weight is going to take aaages, so I just have to be patient. And try to enjoy life in the meantime... ;-p

Morning friendlies

Been a crazy weekend, but fun nonetheless. Didn't get 'round to going riding yesterday, but that's ok, there's always next weekend...

And so begins a new week, hope everyone has a nice start to the week.

We might find out the PBFD test results today, hoping and praying for a negative, but we'll just have to wait and see... Not knowing is making me crazy but that's ok. Anyway, irrespective of the results on this test, we have to test again in 3 months' time, and we will only know for certain after the second test, so keeping my fingers crossed. Will update as soon as we've heard back from the vet

Good luck Ruby. <Fingers crossed>

Morning folks
Had a very nice time on my date Saturday.
New England Aquarium was very cool.
On the way home we were yacking away and I didn't move over so wound up on Hwy 101 E instead of 93 N, and frankly didn't even notice until we wound up at Hampton beach. It was like "How did we get HERE?!?!?!?!" Had something to laugh about, that's for sure.
Instrumentation and Controls today.
Deja vous I think I've done this before.....
Why don't they get that Mechanical Engineers go to an instrument catalog and buy gauges? If it doesn't work we send it back....Duh.
Anyway it is what it is and I'll suffer through it.
Seasonably cold today
