Yeah, he tends to get excited and annoy the crap out of her, he goes absolutely bananas and runs around all crazy, chirping like mad, jumping on and playing with toys, ringing bells, displaying for her, trying to preen and feed her, and she usually doesn't much care for that kind of high energy interaction and sends him packing...sometimes they are the definition of sweethearts to one another and usually get along very well overall.

Hey gang, felt I ought to drop an update considering the following the lovely babies contained herein enjoy, I have been granted an unusual holiday gift in the form of several symptoms indicative of heart disease and the family is understandably overreacting leaving me with very little free time, there have been no official diagnoses or anything, but many of life's eventual necessities have jumped to the fore and are impeding my time with you wonderful people, I'm certain this will all end as it is supposed to, and that this is a frightful nuisance and little more, but I suppose getting ones affairs in order early isn't such a bad thing all told just in case, I hope everyone is having a fulfilling and safe holiday season, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year's one and all!

So, quick update, doctors are not at all infallible, and insurance companies are always full of poo, life is moving in the desired direction once more, the feathered children are as rambunctious and amusing as ever, perhaps a trifle more daring and obstinate, but they are certainly giving me all I could ask for and probably more, thanks to a member here I remembered to slow down and smell the Rose's, not like we're any of us getting out of life alive and the journey and those we share it with are at least as important as the destination, life fell behind financially in ways I did not think possible, led to some people leaving, others reappeared in their place, been a crazy 6 months, but I think we'll be ok in the end, been thinking about you guys of late, I hope all is well with each of you

Good to see you again, Hoss.

I tried telling the family that if artillery, IED's, RPG's, and bullets couldn't kill me, why should anything as routine as possible heart disease fare any better? Been an interesting ride, but we're going to get through this thing one way or another lol.

You will have a better second half, and a fantastic next year, you must simply bear, grin, and bend the knee to the Lords plans, he'll see us all through according to his own good plan and will.

I fully agree that 2020 has been a year that has more in common with a dumpster than a glory year. I elected to call it a transition year and am looking ahead for the joys of 2021! :D:D:D

Still hanging out in the west and these fires are turning into a damnable nuisance, the feather babies are hanging out with nana and papa for a couple of weeks, the smoke is getting intolerable even for me on the truck, and I had to go help my brother evacuate, so that was interesting, but they are doing well and as usual they are having way more fun at the grandparents house than with dad, we do Facebook messenger video every couple of days and I get to see them, Beau is generally nonplussed about the whole affair but Belle keeps trying to get through the tablet screen to come see me, lol, poor girl just doesn't understand why we have to be apart for a bit
