Elvis, and Bruce Lee I recall being shocked when I heard the news......but Challenger, Columbia, and 911 I can say froze time for me as well as loosing Family members.....it touched the soul.
Hack
Hack - You list family members in 9/11, Columbia, or Challenger?
My apologies.....took me a few times to grasp that conversation. From (911 thru Columbia) I was listing EVENTS that froze time for me. Loosing 'Family members' have had the same effects on me as those more infamous ones. SORRY.

Was tired when I wrote that last night, and this morning only 2 cups of coffee in case I cause utter confusion AGAIN. ;)

Mornin Hack. I gapped on the date yesterday until I wrote it on an invoice. Yes, we will never forget up here either. I was working at the Sheraton on the Falls. I was having coffee with the Chef in the 14th floor restaurant over looking the falls when it came on the TV in the lounge. We were all dumb founded watching it unfold. Typically you can watch sightseeing helicopters constantly circling the falls - in a matter of minutes they were all grounded. Due to the many power generating stations in the area we had fully loaded fighter jets and Apache helicopters patrolling the border. It was eerie with out the constant drone of helicopters - everything went silent. I was working on the roof of the hotel and apparently the jets noticed me. A very short time later an Apache showed up to see what i was doing - At fist I thought "Cool!, an Apache!" then he stopped and rotated to face me. It was no longer cool - it was time to go inside.

Hello again! 馃槑

Rick, that is some kind of sobering experience you had on 9/11. That鈥檚 a different way of looking at the whole scenario that day I appreciate your viewpoint from somebody that lives in Canada.

Vinnie, I don鈥檛 believe I told you how much I enjoyed the photos from Cooper鈥檚 birthday party. That looked like so much fun!
Snazzy red car! I recognize a lot of cars, but I don鈥檛 recognize what kind that is. 馃

Hi Cath. I am going to guess a 1967 Camaro judging by the vent windows.

My foot ball pool started out dismal Perry. On a lighter note, my NY Giants won a game...now that that annual event is over we can go back to reliably loosing while I bet on them...

Afternoon /evening all,
Today鈥檚 star for the fridge was rounding up 10-12 bins n boxes worth of auction fodder and getting the out of the basement to then pole barn for take em to auction staging. Now I鈥檓 prob 90% have the basement emptied of 鈥渟tuff鈥,,, will be contacting the auction house and see when they want the stuff..
Since it鈥檚 been raining/drizzling all day I hd to time the basement to pole barn move,, settled for very light mist since it seemed like the best it was gonna get 馃檮.
Dunno what is on the list for tomorrow, but imagine basement efforts will continue. Working on getting things put away where they oughta be and enjoy the freed up floor space.

Now to continue with the evening parrot play time,,,

Hope everyone had a great day 馃憤馃徏

Howdy Jeff......at that pace you outa have all our cellars and garages cleaned out within say..... :unsure: .....Quicker than I'd get 2-IT.馃榿 Enjoy your bird time. Any new words/phrases?

Was a hot sunny, cool rainy/stormy day at the creek. Confused? Me too. Was a beautiful day at the shore.....called for severe storms mid morning on.....might have been, but couldn't see them past that glaring sunshine.

MORE Ham sandwiches, and looks like will be till Y'All get over here.....someone over purchased.

Jen's Dr. postponed Her surgery for tomorrow till next Tuesday.....oh yeah, She's fit to be hog tied. I guess his 'T-time' was pushed up.:mad:

Whelp, hope something nice blesses All this evening,
Hack

Yeah Doug, I had a 68 Z at my disposal while I was in the Navy.....great combination.:cool:

Well how i got that free Z28 (not) was because I was riding my old S90 Honda and an Dr ran a stop sign while inebriated, Got free medical and he gave me a brand new Z28, if we handled it without cops. It was a 302 4 speed that I could mot drive since left Tibia,Fibia were broke and casted. after 3 weeks i tried to race it and had a friend of mine drive it home. He made me a sweet deal , i did a Steve Miller and took the money and run.

Good evening, all!
Jeff, you did a banner job with rounding up of all the auction stuff today! You definitely deserve some quality time with your birds and doggies tonight.

Besides that, what Hack said鈥 Any new words come out of Molly鈥檚 beak?

Hack, That is a really confusing day that you had. And then the folderol about Jen鈥檚 surgery being changed to next Tuesday. I believe people in the professions call that 鈥渧isiting Dr. Green.鈥 At least that鈥檚 what Bobbi told me when one of the higher ups in the trust company where she worked called it. But that鈥檚 not the same thing as the doctor changing the schedule. Bleh.

Doug, that鈥檚 quite a story about the Z28. Somebody can expand it and make a good movie out of it.馃ぃ

I hope everybody has a super groovy evening tonight.

Evening all,

Cath/Hack, dunno if I mentioned it before , but I added a new phrase for Molly to hopefully pick up,,, and works off one she knows already . She 鈥 says鈥 Hi already/clearly ,,, I added 鈥渄addy鈥 to the 鈥渉i鈥 when I talk to her . She has a few extra vocal sessions each day, the AM seems to be around 8:30 CST,, think the radio in the room times on close to that ,, so maybe she gets vocal first hearing it 馃し馃徎鈥嶁檪锔.
I grabbed the phone and recorded her like to usually do when she is putting out good 鈥減ronunciations鈥,,, she did a few clear 鈥渨hatcha doin鈥?鈥 鈥榮,,,, a few half hearted 鈥渨oof - woof鈥 鈥榮 and some mumbling like usual( I can make out what she is so-so saying, anyone else would not ) I heard her do a 鈥渉i 鈥 with a early learning 鈥渄addy鈥 right after 馃憤馃徏馃憤馃徏鉂.
Macaws are known to 鈥渟peak鈥 but not really high on the list for parrots that do it better,,. African grey parrots , most Amazon parrots etc etc. have the title of 鈥渢alkers鈥 more so than macaws,,, but I鈥檒l be darned if I have one that did not read that anywhere , haha.
Sent today鈥檚 audio clip to Sis,,, ( I usually left her reply with what she heard,,, tho I of course hear the 鈥渁lmost鈥 attempts than she would) she said she heard the 鈥渨hatcha doin鈥?鈥 Clear as a bell ( also said she sounds like me 馃し馃徎鈥嶁檪锔忦煒傪煠佛煆烩嶁檪锔) , and a 鈥渉i鈥 here n there . Told her to listen again and see if she picks up the 鈥渄addy鈥 part after a 鈥渉i鈥. Armed with that help she did say she could pick it up somewhat.

Not bad for mebbe a week or so of saying that to Molly,,, 鈥淲oof-Woof鈥 came pretty fast too,,, might let her perfect what she says now before deciding what I might work on her next馃馃し馃徎鈥嶁檪锔..

Did not pop in here to ramble on about boid 鈥渟peak鈥,, but to let you all know that I messaged/bothered the GSD breeder this morning asking if they had a ballpark timeline for the next litter. I was told earlier ( when I learned I was 3rd pick for the current litter鈥檚 2 male pups) that a 鈥渨inter鈥 litter was planned . That was too general for my brain to deal with , hence asking if there was a tighter timeline . Well, looks like breeding will happen in October,, pups in Dec., and go home in Feb.馃憤馃徏馃憤馃徏馃槉. That being said there will be a visit prior to Feb. so I can visit/check out the pups and kennel ( a kennel of German Shepherds will make my week/month, haha) along with making my pick of the males. Being 1st pick this time,, will be great and difficult somewhat. But like I did with the last time I picked a pup,, I sat with em all and sorta let the pup pick me . Tho I will work on my choice first based on looks/ temperament/ how it acts etc. , and pretty sure all of em will seem to pick me , heheh.

As I watch King try to get current Doxie foster Rudy to play with him,, I鈥檝e taken him aside and told him he will be getting a new brudda of his own kind to eventually play with,, and to show him the ropes on how to be a great dawg like him. Dunno if I got they to King ,, 馃し馃徎鈥嶁檪锔忦煒. But I know he will be head over paws to have a GSD pup/kid brother to play with soon.

Sorry to ramble,,, it鈥檒l happen when I get typing about parrots n dawgs馃檮馃槚馃馃樁.

G鈥檔ite all馃憤馃徏
