Im going to scare everyone away. Brock, if you want im going into the chatroom, if you want to join me in there!

wow you are an RN.

hey all you Western Gals - you have it made in the shade (gosh that saying is dating me a bit now isn't it) You have a new AirstreamJOY and she is an RN - you know what that means - you have a safety net - for the wine tasting - tee hee...no secrets being told here - what happens at a rally stays at a rally and especially a Rivette Rally

I have been eyeing the 22CCD. for a while. I know Paula has one - not sure if it is for sale - but if I had some "new" money I sure would give her an offer. But perhaps by the end of 2008 I will have enough to put one on my Yukon

Work - hmm if it does not fit in my lap top it has no business being with me The days of paper - are long gone for me. but a little comfy couch or oversize leather chair where I could have my lap top perched nicely - would be right up my alley.

RVsurplus.com - They list a lot of surplus furniture. But if you visit the actual place in Indiana you can score some pretty perfect fitting pieces - with a little handywoman maneuvering we can pretty much do anything in these little silver beauties.

I like the desk too - IF I was a traveling workaholic - but I am not I would be a traveling lazyholic for sure....

I loved my little 21 69 too and am still kicking myself for selling her - but will leave the jury out until we finish the LadyBug and then see how it goes.

Tha parrots - First off - sorry if these are too big. I can resize if it's a problem!

I have 3 of them, 2 talkers, all fliers. They're all so smart and great buddies.

Beau, the green one, is my smallest and my best friend. He's a green-cheeked conure. We used to live on the west coast. When I moved, he drove across country with me. He's also been on 2 North-south road trips on the east coast. He's the best talker. When I turn out the lights at night, he says "Wake up."



This is Jimmy Bullet the white-capped parrot:


And Anka the greater vasa parrot (her name is Incan for Black Eagle). She's still a baby.


I probably would have posted this an hour ago, but got too busy on chat made a fast and WILD friend.

Brock

Well ask Brock why you were nominated by a committee of one to be the social welcoming committee???

So I take it you did not leave the chat room L.

Brock your parrots are great - I almost bought a couple of parrolets last year when we were hunting for a Bird for my parents. They have always been dog owners and I could tell they were starting to get a little down not having any pets - Dad has enough to take care of so I thought a bird would be reasonable and Mom loves Birds....well we ended up getting a Canary and it was the best present we could have bought them! What a huge difference even a small pet makes in peoples lives - he (Pepi) is a beautiful singer and actually has grown quite attached to them both and reacts to lots of things they do and say. Best of all the house is not quiet all the time.

They don't know it yet but in the new place we hope to have a little spot we can make a nice big flight cage - so that they can add a few more birds.

Laura you are not wild are you? I know I am not and Laura can vouch for that can't you "dear"... I will see if I can find a pic of Mom's bird

Well have the tongue free the stabilizers out and the chocks free as well - just have to get inside and secure everything for her 400 foot trip down the drive to her new spot. In the open air garage

There is still power out there and lots of room to work on a flat surface.

I thought it was 4 inches - but it was 2 plus some ice which meant a hot water bucket brigade to get her free... so I have to pull her out of the hole now before it turns cold....

Brock you hare a hop skip and a jump - from IvyLea Bridge - where we normally cross into the States unless of course we are heading to MI then we cross at Sarnia.....Don't like the Detroit crossing I always GET LOST!

Okay- so where is everyone - the fire is having a tough time going these days - with all the wet wood

The terrible rain and wind for the past 3 days has finally subsided. We are back to 0c 30's - most of the snow is gone closer to town - we still have a fair bit - but all the paths are clear and we can see grass. Icey drive though.

Well our big day is tomorrow - the Minor Variance Hearing is in the morning - our third kick at the can - we can not go any smaller with this house - or we may parents may as well live in a 34' trailer down at the water - (which would be nice too but real real cold in the winter) When we get our green light tomorrow (being real positive and optimisitic) We should have the parents in their new house by June!!

One of my first projects is to design a new Patio Pond - to house my Dad's Gold fish. Right now they are bunkin in with mine. Anyone else have fish? and do you winter them inside??

My set up is a bit primative - with a cow watering trough and magazine rack as a filter tower but it provides the room for all the fish. they hang out in our basement. I did have mine in a smaller barrel upstairs in my bathroom but it was not very becoming.

I also have fancy goldfish (4) in a Tank upstairs that are my indoor fish.

Thanks, Sharon, the Bailey's is ALWAYS welcome here, and it will warm up our raw day, rain, blustery wind, chill. I have my mind set on April 14; I know the world will then be green and burgeoning and the sky will be wild and blue. I smiled at your fish. We no longer have a small fish pond since we moved and found a 1/2 acre fishing pond instead. But in town, we had a small fish pond where our fish lived year after year outdoors, through the freezing winter. Our pond was 3' deep at its deepest, which must have been deep enough to protect them through the winter. We passed our pond fish on to our daughter who also enjoys outdoor gardening/ puttering. Isn't it amazing how many creatures we cherish on our lands? Nice pictures of yours ~G
