I Just Can't Get Enough Of Them

 I Just Can't Get Enough Of Them

They are so wonderful and everyday I feel like I just can't get enough of them or love them enough.

Yesterday I went to the pet store and bought crickets and super worms for my babies. I swear they are more spoiled then my children (maybe..HaHa). I have these really cool plastic boxes with lids and a little plastic door on top that I use to feed them crickets in.

I dump the crickets in the container for the day once I buy them and then at night I put a box in each cage after I remove the little door. Last night all five of my little sweeties enjoyed a night of munching on crickets. It was so cute watching them sneak up to the box like they were hunting. Some of them got into the box with the crickets and some of them would hold onto the top of the box with their little feet and hang into the box and snatch up a cricket and run off to a different place to eat it and then come back for another. They really enjoy the occasional times that I buy crickets for them. I don't do it but maybe once a month as they are doing so well on the Leadbeaters and chicken and egg that I give them but as a treat and a hunting experience I try to give them crickets every now and then.

Cosmo and Lucas are so bonded to me they never stay on anyone else for to long. When I take them out to play they will allow me to put them on someone else like my hubby or children but after a few seconds they will spot me and then take off and glide right back to me.

Last night I took Lucas out and he got on my shoulder and I just walked around the house doing things with him just sitting there on my shoulder and looking around. He'll even sit there while I play on the computer. Cosmo just wants to get busy playing on me and around the house. I have to be careful when I take him out because he'll spot something interesting and then take off.

I'm still working on the bonding with the other colony which consists of Jack, Luna and Milk Dud. Last night for the first time Jack got on my arm when I stuck it in the cage. Luna just started doing it a few weeks ago and Milk Dud has been doing it for a while. These are older gliders and I'm finding that the bonding process is taking alot longer but one day I know I'll get there. Playing in the tent is one thing with these guys where they feel forced to interact with me but the trust I'm finally getting from them when they are in their cage to me is much more exciting. I'll continue to work with them everyday and just go from there.

One thing that I enjoy seeing is the Love between Jack and Luna. These two lonesome gliders that I rescued are so in Love that it is so wonderful to see them together. They constantly are clicking to each other. Last night I watched them as Jack entered the wheel while Luna was in it. She immediately grabbed him and began rubbing her head into his chest. After she was done he grabbed her head and began rubbing his head into her chest. I watched as they did this to each other for a few minutes and it warmed my heart that I could bring these two gliders together. I also felt bad for Milk Dud as she continues to be the third wheel in the colony but gets along just fine with them both. Whatever the case may be with this colony at least they are no longer alone and depressed. They have each other whatever their relationship may be.

My News
My husband bought me a 2008 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic motorcycle, brand new and I just love it. I took the Motorcycle Riders Safety Class and I ACED it. Scored 100% and beat out every man in the class. I felt so proud when the instructor announced it to the class and surprised me with the news and my temporary liscense. Hubby and I have made quite a few road trips together, me on my Vulcan and him on his Goldwing. The feeling of the freedom that comes with riding is just so wonderful. This is my stress reliever and everyday I can't wait until the next time I can get on my bike and go.
My Bio
I am 52 years old, have three children, have been married for 23 years to my wonderful husband Ed. I have a son who's 29 and lives in MA. I have two daughters 21 and 16 who are at home. I love to go motorcycle riding with my husband. We have a great time together and sometimes get away for a weekend here or there to try and rekindle some romance in our relationship. I'm an assistant delivery sales manager at an auto parts store. It can be very stressful and sometimes feel more like a babysitter than a boss. My favorite place to get away to is the mountains for some hiking, horseback riding or just some site seeing of the wildlife and scenery.
