A Correction

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Wed Nov 13, 2019 3:26 am

Friends I don't know what I was thinking last night but flight is not flite but flights.
I woke up this morning to clouds and 55 degree temps then the rain and finally snow without any covering and finally sunshine.
The moon is a no show but the temp is 28 and it feels like 21
It is nice inside with a temp of79 inside and 77 in the bedroom.
Friends sleep warm

Waiting for snow NA

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Tue Nov 12, 2019 4:07 am

Well friends I come to tell you what's happening.
Today started out at 60 degrees and now its 56 degrees and we have snow for the first time this year.
I have food and heat but I still hate this weather.
The keets are asleep and YES the new Frick still loves to get out of the cage.
Frick only has short flites so I think he wings were clipped.
And he as well as his Sister sleep thru the night.
Will try to inform you tomorrow.

Just a quickie

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Wed Oct 30, 2019 1:24 am

Friends this has been a year I will never forget.
First it was my bouts in the hospital then it got worse.
The 24th of Oct started out ok but around noon Frick who I had for over 3 years died.
Now Frack was lost so I had to go to another pet store as Monster pet closed in my area.
I went to PETCO and got a new Frick (this makes Frick#3)
I had the 2 keets on the balcony and the new Frick got out of the cage.
So back to the pet store for ANOTHER parakeet.
Got him home and my neighbor I never knew knocked on my front door asking if I lost a keet.
So the keet was returned and all is normal.
Can't wait for this month to end

I'M BACK

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Sat Aug 31, 2019 5:22 pm

Friends its been 6 months since I chatted with you and because as before I was in hospital.
Im waiting for them to deliver my helicopter with pilot.
Last visit was 6 days with arguments with nurses,doctors etc.
BUT I now can walk much better.
The keets are doing great and out on balcony.
Hope Frank is ok and doesn't mind this one request.
The picture is of a plant I over wintered and it bloomed like crazy all Summer but I forgot its name.
Last summer was bad for tomatoes so this year I went with flowers which could have been better but not bad.
Sleep cool ed.

Hi friends I bet you friends thought I died but it has been the worse year I have ever had.June 2018 in the hospital for pneumonia( I know I spelled it wrong)then last Feb I was back for 2 days longer for same problem as in June 2018. I paid enough to the hospital to get their own helicopter.
Good news is that the keets (Frick & Frack) are doing good except I can't get it thru Frick that Frack is NOT his girlfriend but his Sister.
I have 1 small question and that is what soil is supposed to be used in the Toppsey turvey as I used it last summer and got 2 tomatoes smaller than a marble.
Today was beautiful with a temp of 79 outside and I had the A/C on.
Listening to weather its supposed to go back down to the 30's which will mess up the babies.
One more thing is that the TURKEYS have returned,saw them last night.
That's all from me,sleep warm

Ps
Picture of my shade fence looks good and the keets are in the lower right corner.

Is this year over yet?

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Thu Jan 17, 2019 3:22 am

My year is not going good as last Friday I had to go by rescue to hospital cause I could not breath and that is with me not smoking for 216 days.
So I went in on Friday and got out yesterday and they don't know whats wrong besides COPD and maybe Broncitic (poor spelling).
Have to go see my Dr on 1/23 for checkup.
Only good thing was the nurse who was there last June was still there and remembered me.
Last June my room cost was over 11,000.00 for 4 days,can't wait since I was in for 6 days.
Happy new year.
Parakeets were cared for by Peg and she did a GREAT job.

Today we Have a Happy Birthday Keet

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Wed Dec 12, 2018 1:44 am

Hi Friends from a crazy weather New Jersey.

I looked at the calendar and noticed I've had Frick 2 years and so far he still thinks Frack is his girlfriend instead of a sister.

I sent off all the gift cards(and I know some people don't think its good) BUT I don't drive and to get the presents would be too much for me.
And the presents I have ordered and got paid for are coming in every day.
The 2 blowups I showed you before are outside and look ok.
I baked cookies yesterday and plan to bake more tomorrow.
I took some pictures tonight and will try to post them here tonight or if not tomorrow night

A quick shorty

Brrr its cool outside.
The keets are asleep and Santa already left their gifts to be seen on Christmas Day.
The gifts keep coming in and at least my rent is paid.
We already had our first snow and I must have been crazy all those years working outside.
Sent gift cards to all children and my 2 brothers so I'm done.
Peg my friend,ex co worker and now driver is coming over tomorrow night to put up my tree.
She already put up my balcony lights and something new this year BLOW UPS!
And I found 2 photos from this area I thought you'd like to see.
sleep warm.
