    Walmart did it again.

    Never shipped the 100 calc rolls then resent & only a 12 pack was delivered.

    They said I could keep that.

    They were going to send the 100 rolls that cost $15...

    They also said they could refund.

    100 rolls are really about $22...

    I cancelled it as it would be better to just get the $15 refund & order another time as its just a $7 fifference & I'd have to store 100 rolls &Penny does not seem to be interested in her paper roll dispenser...


    Thing is 12 rolls is over $13 so why can they sell 100 rolls for $22 & I got them for $15 as it was an error!!!

    Still 100 rolls laying around if she does not like them that much....

    Well lets hope they don;t send it now as it will likely weigh 35lbs

    Gosh it would cost more than the $15 just to ship it!!!

    Well, it was ok for a while but she seemed stressed so I had to wheel the huge cage across the room again...Going to feel it tomorrow OOOh my aching back!!!

    I moved heavy file cabinets to get her out of the hall near the door lease she is in the hallnear my desk & can see me now...

    May have been to much of a move ot maybe needs to get used to Rio more...

    She's OK where she is just thought she'd like a window view

    Moved her past 2 huge heavy file cabinets. I had to move them back but I got her cage near my desk now so she can see me at the laptop & shes about 8 feet away. Bedtime & most lights are out but shes playing...

    We'll have to see how this works as shes not interested in sleeping now but truthfully she stays up later just I'm exhausted from all the moving.

    No I don;t need to put on weight as I'm about 20 too heavy as it is!

    Happy 3 month anniversary for Penny!!!!

    We have been pigging out.

    She loves my whole grain french toast & a morsel of grassfed beef when I indulge.

    Last night some grilled chicken...

    Time really does fly. Doesn't seem like it has been 3 months. So glad that you were able to bring Penny into your home.

    I was hoping for some new pics. Easy to see the bond between both of you. The video doesn’t play so I hope that gets straightened out. Never too much Penny!

    5 Months!!! Penny gave me a scare last Wed night... It was late in the early morn when I wa on the laptop listening to the stereo sound of 2 crickets. I saw on close by walking on the wall so I ran to the kitchen to get the fly swatter. It was dark & did not give Penny enough warning & she spooked in her cage & fell to the bottom. She lay there motionless with one wing held out. She would not move... I was frantically depressed that this freakin bug has caused injury to my Penny.

    It was about 23 or 4AM. I watched her & she stayed like that a good long time. Then she climbed up the cage & sat on a perch where she did not move & had that wing out a bit. I stayed with her an hour or so. I did not know what to do but I decided to let her be quietly & left the light on & went to bed. She was alright in the morning but gave me such a scare!!!

    Its been a few days & she is OK...PHEW!!! I guess it hurt or was bruised but no real damage. I let her take it easy the next day. Did not want to vac as she likes to take a bath & thought it bad if her wing was injured but she made such a mess.

    I vacced & she took her head dive baths in her bowl which I had to refill a few times til she was done flooding the place!!!

    I love my Penny!!!
