I’m Back!


IMG_2791First off, this post is a test of posting on my phone. I have a bluetooth keyboard for my iPhone and have been wanting to try this out for a long time. I am sitting in the line for the Edmonds ferry with a tray on my lap. It seems to be working pretty well. I have used this keyboard before, on a train trip my daughter, to California. I love it, very useful to have!

So, the reason I have been gone is that my brother-in-law died suddenly and we had to go to California. We were there a little over a week taking care of all the business one has to take care of in such situations. By the time we got back, we were pretty far behind with wiork and house stuff. My brother in law had a bird, a Double Yellow Headed Amazon Conure. We were lucky enough to be able to bring her home!! The biggest problem we had was how to get her cage home.. We went to Petsmart and got a travel cage but the big cage is 5 feet all, 3 feet wide an d2 feet deep. Fortunately if broke down and we were able to get it into my car (a 92 Camaro with very little room in side) We almost had to ship it but Kevin was able to get it in and all the other stuff too (well, we did ship hoe 3 large totes). The birds name is Toby and she is settling in just fine. We also have a cockatiel and I thought they might chatter back and forth but they don’t seem very interested in each other. Toby does like to watch the fish that are on a counter behind her cage. She ignores the cats and may have laughed at the chihuahua.

I will try to insert a photo I took on the way home but this wordpress app doesn’t seem to want to do that. (Edit: I was able to add the photo above after I got home)

So aside from work and all the other busyness I haven’t found time to get a blog post up but I have tons of ideas so I a going to set up my laptop everyday and do the blog on that. I can set it up on my husbands desk (I work from home) and roll over there when I have an idea. We are planning a trip to Disney World in the middle of November and I am working on a list of things review and report on from there. I will have a years worth of blog material by the time I get back!

I also have a new camera, a Cannon Rebel T3i, that I am learning how to use so I will have lots of photos soon.

Speaking of photos, another thing I am going to start posting are some wonderful 1960’s to 1980’s photos from Disneyland (we got them when we were going through stuff from storage)!! Disney geeks love this kind of thing so I hope there are some out there.

Well, I guess that is it for now. This app worked pretty well, except for the adding-a-photo-thing. I will work on that.
