Dobby’s molting

has produced quite a few new feathers. Mainly around his neck & upper back. They’re mostly solid gray & are quite a bit darker than his “baby” feathers. I wonder if he’ll still have white speckles when he’s completely molted. I’ll try to post a pic soon that shows the new darker feathers. So far, he’s moved each time I’m about to snap the pic & they don’t come out well enough to show the new look.

When I got home

from work today, ex-husband called to speak with our son. Later son came downstairs & told me that ex had called him back b/c he’d left him a message about when he’ll pick them up for a visit this summer. I told son this morning, when he was angry with his dad (b/c they’ve been out of school since the end of May & have not seen their dad once), that I’d drive them down there to visit (about 6 hours) and then ex could drive them home whenever ex can work it out to have them come down there… but that ex and I need to talk & get dates worked out. Each time I’ve tried to work out a visit for the kids with ex, he’s balked & had other plans, no money, work stuff. Each time I have asked him for specific dates that he wants to pick them up or meet me 1/2 way, he doesn’t call for a week or so & then acts as if I have never asked such a question.

Now ex tells son, after not showing up as promised this past weekend, that he wants to pick them up for a 2 or 3 week visit before school starts. Well… school starts here on August 17. He’d better come on with it or he’s gonna miss seeing them for the entire summer break.

I really hope he comes thru for the kids. It’s awful to see them so disappointed in him & so hurt when he doesn’t keep his word to them.
