Bird on the loose... where's my camera

A couple of days ago, a client came to the office with a small tissue box. He opened it and he pulled out a parakeet with what looked to be a possible broken leg.

"I think leg broken," he said in broken English.

I explained to him that I do not treat birds and referred him to an avian veterinarian. Just then the bird got away and started flying around the waiting room. The funniest part about this whole escapade is that the two clinic cats, Murphy and Krusty, were by the receptionist window following the parakeet's every move like spectators at a tennis match. It took us about five minutes or so for the owner to catch the bird and cage him. I gave him the address and phone number of the vet and he was on his way.

As for the cats, they sat by the window, hoping for another bird to show up. I need to bring my camera to work more often.

A Day of Thanks

Well, another Thanksgiving has come and gone for another year. Sandra and I went to my Aunt's house in Morton Grove. As usual, there was a bunch of food (Turkey, duck, chicken, beans, potatoes, cabbage, some Filipino dishes, sliced fruit, and Chocolate Fudge Cake) and family. Now begins the push towards Christmas and New Year's.

I got to thinking, "What am I thankful for?"

1. I am thankful for my parents (both sets) and family.
2. I am thankful for the love of my life, Sandra.
3. I am thankful for my friends (Sara WNH, Don't Think Twice, Autopilot).

What are you thankful for?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Cookiefest 2006

Ah, yes. It's that time again where Sandra and I go haywire and bake to our heart's content. It's COOKIEFEST 2006!!! Sandra and I get our recipes together and bake like there's no tomorrow. I have a feeling that it's going to be a busy holiday for both of us.

What are we baking? Well, you are just going to have to wait until next month. ;)))

I've got your "Tick Tock" right here!

Finally, after many errors, here are the pictures from the Madison Get Together.

Sorry, no captions. Make up your own as you go along. Besides, I've got to go to work.

Computer Hijinks

Well, another night, another computer mishap. We still can't get the router to work. I've had it up to here with this stuff. I'm going to call tech support and see if they can't get this blasted thing connected.

I have some good news. The Thanksgiving pictures will be put up by tomorrow. I usually reformat my CF card after downloading the pictures to the computer. Luckily I did not do that this time. Especially since my second hard drive went kaboom.
