Sugar Billy comes through!

I mentioned to Sweet William the Scot that I still had his 2014 calendar on the wall (and NOT on the bottom of my cage).


I had to convert 2014 to 2015. It was easy last year because it was all just a day’s difference. This year would be too much for my bird brain-not only would there be 2 days difference but starting in March, 3 days because of leap year. Then in the mail yesterday was an envelope all the way from Cincinnati where Sweet William runs the town. It was addressed to Kismet!!!! In it, were three identical cards.


Since I don’t need three, I’ll give one to Kaci and one to Kali. I have a problem and maybe your collective wisdom can help me. They didn’t come with instructions. Kaci and Kali are scratching their heads also. They seem to be set for the Eastern time zone. How do you switch them to Mountain time?

  1. I don’t think time has anything to do with these calendars, but I may be missing something here, after all I’m talking to a bird.

    Have a fabulous day. My best to your mom. 🙂

  2. I’m with Comedy Plus…it’s a calendar, correct? We know you are a brilliant bird, so what’s the problem? How lovely if Sweet William to send one to each of you…I guess you must be like the Kardashians….each one with a mega schedule, thus needing your own personal recorder of the day’s events.

  3. Bwahaahaa! Changing the time on a calendar!!! Hope the old calendar doesn’t end up on the bottom of the cage now…

  4. Be glad it is on Nati City time! Mark Twain said “When the end of the world comes, I want to be in Cincinnati because it’s always twenty years behind the times.”

    • Thanks for the up to date calendars. Twain also said that the coldest winter he ever experienced was one summer in San Francisco. To my knowledge, he said that and never attended a night game at Candlestick Park in July.

  5. Flip them to the back and then back to the front (counter clockwise) and then they will be in your timezone.
    I know dis will work cuz I’m a smart scottie like SWTS and can speak scottish.

  6. Just hold it a little to the left and it will change time zones.

  7. you can buy a clock in a junk-store like my momma… it had 3 time zones and it was just 1.99 euros… what a bargain… sadly two of that time zones were fakes and only for decorating the empty clock face :o( but it looks impressive on her wall :o)

  8. That Sweet William.. AKA Sugar Billy.. is a marvelous furend fur SURE!! Can’t have you being OUTTA DATE. We see that you have plenty of advice fur getting it SET to Mt. Time… and VERY glad that NONE of his calendars will end up at the bottom of your cage…
    It was unexpectedly Considerate of you to Share with K & K. Are you getting soft in the Feathers???? Traveling DOWN a new Path???

  9. Time zones? Is that something from Star Wars? Mom and Dad went and left me at home.

  10. Oh we love Sweet William and his momma, Lee.

  11. As they say in the schoolyard, “It takes one to know one”.

  12. Greetings. Mummy just wanted us to pass by and let you know she is thinking of doing a blog post devoted to some of the little birdies that live around here, dedicated to you. What do you think? Love Nellie and Jasper, the two bestest, but hottest maremmas in all the land.

  13. […] friend Kismet is now fully indoctrinated into the world of dealing with SNOWMAGEDDON. What […]

  14. That was a trick question, right? Calendars shouldn’t need adjustment for time zones. ღ

  15. mom keeps saying she wants to make a calendar of me but she never has the time!
