Rollingcow Jack was playing 'Mario' yesterday, he wasn't allowed to actually play the video game after both he and Victoria had fits because they weren't winning, so he was racing around the house jumping and throwing pretend fireballs. I asked him what this was and he said in a tone that told me I was the dumbest woman alive 'it's my moustache'.

Yottyhere That picture and your explanation just made coffee go up by dose thank you so very much hahahaha
BirdsNest It is the Great Ukelele Orchestra of Great Briton. The link above goes nowhere it seems, sorry everyone.

Yottyhere I have always thought I would like to have a bird that size. But our house isn't geared for a large one and I have heard they take a lot of care (hanging head and I am lazy ) Youngest daughter can play the ukelele and her students love it when she accompany them on it.

BirdsNest Yotty-actually Melvin is a medium sized parrot. He sits about 6" tall on his perch and he is approximately 12" long from beak to tip of the tail feathers. He is a great talker and sings "You Are My Sunshine" and "Lullaby". Sometimes he fits his own words in but he does a good job of it. He likes interaction when he sings, I am expected to give applause at certain words when he says them with passion. He eats just about anything and loves shrimp,scallops, and crabmeat. He is not in a cage, he has a play area on top of an under-the-seat airline carrier, with a "T" stand and his toys hang from that. He is fully flighted but chooses not to fly anywhere. Everything he needs is always on his playtop or in his bowls. The colour Yellow causes him to get agitated. He is the greatest bird. He likes me okay but really he is Hagar's bird. Hagar brought him home from a pet store that had rescued him from Animal Control-his owner had been arrested and jailed and the animals went to the "pound". The pet store owner got him and offered him to Hagar to just give him a good home. He rode all the way from Richmond to our place on Hagar's shoulder, and he has never been caged since. He found his forever home with us.

Yottyhere Awww I love that story about Melvin and I LOVE Melvin since he sings You are My Sunshine and Lullaby. Two of my favorites. I sing You Are My Sunshine to Nu all the time and she just piffles me (weeping )
I takes determination and training to raise a bird like that and to keep him as content as you and Hagar are doing. With the 3 pugs (and searching for another senior pug rescue ) I would never try to commit myself for anymore on my plate.
I envy you having such a great pet!

Ynaught I haven't seen one of these in years! See if you can make a 3-D dinosaur appear:
Gerty He/she is cute! But it does look more like a kangaroo, Miss Y.
It helps to see it if you look at it and kind of day dream as you stare at the middle of the frame.
BTW- there are three of them if you stare towards the lower part of the frame; one if you stare at the center.

Rollingcow I got a gift certificate in the mail for my favorite quilt shop so I'm going to go buy some fabric. While I'm out I'm going to buy some yarn to make some felted slippers that I'm assured are very warm, think I'll get Alpaca wool and name them This and That. Mrs. Cow

Yottyhere 'splain to me what is felted slippers and do you spin your own Alpaca wool??
21 hours ago .
Rollingcow All wool will felt if handled roughly. You can wash it by machine if it's what they call 'superwash', not sure what they do to it, but it has to be laid flat to dry, heat will also felt wool. To make felted slippers you first knit giantic slippers that look like a clown should be wearing them then you wash them in hot water on high agitation. The yarn will all hold together and fuzz up instead of being all nice and pretty in neat rows. At the moment I don't spin much of my own wool to knit with, I'm still using a drop spindle and it's sort of slow going (And yes, you attach the wool to a wooden bar and drop it so it will spin hence the 'drop spindle'. ) I'll probably do more when I get a spinning wheel, I'll probably dye my own wool as well, tend to get obsessive.

Rollingcow Newsflash! We seem to have lost Nu somewhere or another. We stopped to get a bite at the Calico Cutie Cafe and she didn't come back to the truck. Gus contacted the police, but we had to move on. If anyone sees her let us know. Mrs. Cow
Yesterday at 09:00 EST .
Surfhut Wait! Didn't the gang drive 50 miles back to the Texaco station to retrieve your knitting needles, Mrs. Cow? And you can't drive back to look for Nu?
Yesterday at 09:46 EST .
Yottyhere That was Nu's version of why they had to go back to the Texaco not reality. All those people and pugs and not one of them knew about any missing knitting needles. Odd eh???
Yesterday at 10:08 EST .
Rollingcow I've never left my knitting anywhere, ever, I keep it in the same bag as my wallet and checkbook. There was something fishy about that whole thing. Mrs. Cow
Yesterday at 10:15 EST .
Ole buzzard Knowing Nu, she's probably back at the Calico Cutie trying to con the busboy out of his tips, or perhaps engage in some form of commerce.
At any rate, she's gonna get his tips.
Oh, and that Discover card: Good luck trying to use it. I cancelled it months ago.
And going back 50 miles to get knitting needles is one thing. Going back to get Nu is quite another.
Yesterday at 10:16 EST .
Yottyhere Mrs Cow????? Did you check the ladies room?
See my post on the Lobby. You don't think maybe this could be Nu??
Oh Lordy if it turns out to be her I have years and years of jokes/puns/songs/pictures ready for the taking!

Ole buzzard I did hear that one of the EMTs on the scene said that the lady was cursing up a storm in Italian. That could have been Nu.

Nugoddess ♬Just hear those engines gunning the motor's running for you And hear those sirens wailing they're high tailing Mabel and Nu
You know that Buzz is yelling his language has turned the air blue Because his truck is screaming and he just missed Mabel and Nu ♬
Hit the gas Hit the gas Hit the gas let's go we're coming alive We just clocked 100 on I-95
Hurry up Hurry up Hurry up it's grand we're taking a stand Just look at the mess that we made getting away from Mr Cranky Pants hand
Our outlook now is sunny and we think it's funny, don't you? Don't bother to look for egg money 'cause it's gone
Yottyhere Very amusing you two. I am lying I am not amused
There's going to be 'hell to pay' when we catch up to you (looking sternly in Nu's direction )
and now that darn tune is rattling around in my head Hit the gas Hit the gas Hit the gas let's go we're coming alive We just clocked 100 on I-95 arghhhhhhh
Yesterday at 15:50 EST .
Ole buzzard Little does she realize that all that money she took out of the egg money jar is counterfeit. Now she's gotten our little girls (not just Mabel; all three of them ) into deep doo-doo. That Nu is beyond incorrigible.
Yesterday at 15:57 EST .
Balogreene Aren't Mabel and the others below the age of consent?
Yesterday at 17:26 EST .
Ole buzzard Not in dog years, Balo, but they have led sheltered lives, with no hint of the debauchery that Nu is exposing them to.
Yesterday at 18:54 EST .
Yottyhere In a court of law we would argue they are below the age of consent. Wilhelmina is 7, Winifred is 6 and Mabel is 4. BUT knowing that low down scoundrel Nu they would argue in dog years and that would put them above the age at 49,42 and 28. If she goes in that direction we will insist she accept the same age calculations for herself. So at 70 x 7 = (and I am cracking up here ) Nu is a Grand Old Broad 490 dog years young!!!
Neeeeener (kicking up my young heels ) neener :P
Yesterday at 18:54 EST .
1 person like this.
Nugoddess Oh, hardy har-har, Yots ... you know I'm only 68 so if you insist on equivalence then my age (in dog years, mind you ) would only be 476.
[mainly because he wrote a song about me] as observed by the estimable Rod Stewart I will remain
(wait for it )
Ahem. Neener, neener, neener indeed!
Yesterday at 19:46 EST .
Nugoddess And for the record, Yotty, you might want to reconsider that ''in a court of law'' statement. We don't want a repeat of the Petco incident, do we?
Yesterday at 20:57 EST .
Yottyhere Never happened. Not once. Never ever occurred. I will go to that big Pug Parlor in the sky denying that entire episode. Because you and Exerine Dutell got liquored up at the American Legion Post Pancake Breakfast and Skateboard Jamboree and tried to cover your tracks by claiming you saw me doing a pole dance for that old fool Red Dunphy in the storeroom at Petco doesn't make it true. And I can prove it(just like I did in my deposition in Judge Judy's office ) that I was at a Women Retreat at the Little Sisters of Absolutely No Mercy. Everyone knows on the Internet you can be anything you want. It is strange you choose to be stupid :P
SMH dropping that salacious comment about me and Petco and go gaily skipping off into the sunset is really really dumb on your part Dearie. Just remember it was YOU who opened Pandora's box.
Yesterday at 07:59 EST .
Nugoddess Funny but that's exactly what you said at the Kansas City Chiefs game in '82. If you recall, you and Lars Gumstead hot-footed it out of the stadium where Ansel Vivisect found you face down in a bowl of Wheaties, surrounded by empty bottles of NyQuil.
I wasn't going to say anything but your snide comment about the American Legion Post Pancake Breakfast and Skateboard Jamboree was just over the top. It's just like you to pick at that scab because you know I won the yo-yo challenge fair and square. Floyd Crackhauler only snagged that trophy because you tripped me!
(Now I'm gonna hafta be 'scused because it just hurts so much to remember that. Somebody, gimme a beer! * sniff!*
