Got down to 13 last nite and my heater in the water bay went off so woke up to no water this mornin. Grrrr.....momma wasn't happy with that! New Years mornin I wake up at 4 in the morning to no power in Jenny and 64 degrees inside. So I'm up gettin dressed and with a flashlight trying to figure out why no breakers are tripped, until I smell something burning. Turns out the plug in the bathroom had soot all over it where the nite lite was plugged in. Further research revealed our inverter bit the dust. Nobody open on holiday. What a great way to spend the day, no tv, no way to cook. Had to start the engine to charge the house batteries so the heat pump would come back on and we had lights. Sooooo, we found a sports bar open for late lunch early dinner and watched football on the big screen and cried in my beer! The next day and two grand later we were back in business.

So that's our story and I'm sticking to it. Other than that, I'm really gettin sick of this w**rkin thing, even if I do own the company. Partner is back in the saddle on Monday and I'm free! Now where did I put the keys to Jenny? The road is callin us. We got some ketchin up to do.

Now you well know the door is open and the smoothies will help you forget. Besides, it's only money.

Everyone was so anxious to be near us that I got one on the end. Now I only have to put up with what's his name.

Wow, little stinkers. Boko just claims ownership of the cowbell, don't go near that!!!

I've actually gotten a permanent scar from Mac, nothing big, but when he was much younger (he's 20 or so now) he was quite the thing to handle. Well, stupid me, carrying him on my shoulder and he decided my lip makes a good pivot point with his beak. OUCH!!!

As he's gotten older, it's rare I get nip'd anymore which is good but when he does do it, it's practically always my fault cuz I went and did something stupid again and didn't pay attention (brush his tail the wrong way, spook him unexpectedly with something I'm doing, etc.).

And if you like talking birds, well, I can chat forever about them so looking forwards to hearing your experiences as well.

Carl I was returning from a pheasant hunt with a friend and we stopped by his houseboat to check on it on the way home. I was setting on the front of his boat with Perlie when a lady and some type of Parrot come walking down to visit. I told her it wouldn't be a good idea to bring her bird any closer as we had just been bird hunting. She proceeded to try to get her bird to talk to Perlie, who of course was on point. I finally realized the lady had had several drinks and grabbed my dog and told the lady to leave. My buddy came out, after hearing me speaking up and said that was her normal condition getting a good laugh. I felt bad, but not as bad as that bird would have felt had I not jumped in and spoke up!

Good site, if a bit far from the action. We were in that one last year, partly because SarahW recommended it.

BTW, I wanna watch Mac trim the tree! Saves buying those grapevine thingys, don't it?
