Everybody talks about the eagle in the osprey nest at Blackwater NWR, thought I'd take a look. You're right--there it is!

Yes, Steve those eagles at BW use that osprey platform a lot. Enjoying watching the WV eagles arrange their nest. Thanks to you and everyone at NCTC for all the work you do keeping the cam and blog going. Happy Holidays to you and your family.

Hi Floralgirl! Are you ready for Christmas??

Hello Vicky!! AM I Ready for Christmas? LOL! NO!! Daughter home from school today, not feeling well, so I didn't get any shopping done, have to go to the mall and grocery store tomorrow. UGH!! BBL must make dinner.

You're NOT alone Missy!

LOL! Steve, did you think we were joshing you?!

So glad ya'll got to see our eagles today....and that Megan didn't burn her cookies!

Megan, the easiest way that I know of to save pics is from the 30 sec cam. Either right click and "save as", or when you put your cursor over the picture, click on the little diskette that says "save this image" and save it that way. The Fraps program no longer works on the live cam for live or still pictures.

Going out to finish my Christmas shopping...BBL.

Yeppers, they "cooked" our gooses as far as being able to "frap!"

Steve - your lucky you got an eagle because you could have gotten the vultures! Lisa has a great pic on the Osprey Nest site of them!

Merry Christmas to you Steve and your family

Thanks Steven for the New Thread..well well he does read our fabilous writings lol. Merry Christmas to you Steve and all your family (:

Megan thanks for the heads up.

Vicky still not finished shopping??

Anonymous said...

Mema Jo I think your going to have to give me another reminder closer to January 7th about the pandas.
My brain is in "overload now".

Anonymous said...

Well, Dana, I would not have remembered if it wasn't on Tai's cam page. I'll go ahead & place on my calendar & try to remember to remind everyone again...

Anonymous said...

Vicky you know how you said you would never finish something if you didn't have a deadline???????
Are you looking at Saturday Midnight?

Anonymous said...

Dana On the Momster Site is a Calendar. I also put a reminder on it for Jan 7 but I don't really think many people look at it. Paula had kept it updated with all the first fledges.

Mits said...

HO HO HO SANTA IS HERE, THAT'S GREAT DANA.

Mits said...

Just got home a little while ago, going to fix sick hubby some dinner. BBL STEVEN, MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND YOURS, NEXT I THINK MAYBE YOU WILL POST A PIC OF THE PANDAS.

Ok Ok I thought it was you Mits. He isn't the prettiest Santa Claus. So you got your Santa on here gal...I keep him around then just for you.

I am a Harry Potter fan! They have just announced the name of the 7th and final book - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows I need to get my name on the waiting list!
Anyone else like the Harry Potter novels?

Mits said...

Dana, he reminds me of the old Coca-Cola Santa Claus,

Mits said...

Dana, I'm just going to pretend he is holding my MAGGIE.

Mits said...

JO, I'VE NEVER READ ANY OF THE POTTER BOOKS

Anonymous said...

I usually can't put the Potter book down & read straight through! I love them - so much imagination in them.

Dana Until Mits said the
Coke Santa I just couldn't remember why he really did look familiar to me.
Keep on here for sure!!

IrisF said...

Thanks mema Jo and Dana for the URL to the live feed. I will be trying that tomorrow for sure! At least I did get to see our Liberty and Belle in the nest today!

I love all your Christmas photos, one of these days I will figure out how to do that. Without Glo's help I wouldn't even have the photo of my hubby and I. It will have to do for now.

Great news about Sharon feeling better, and I hope the babies with RSV are doing OK too. Will keep them all in my prayers.

Now if I could just finish getting ready for Christmas, LOL!!!

Nilla said...

Iris your picture is great actually if you was wearin a santa hat or one of those bed time hat with a ruffel you make agreat Mrs Santa with your beautiful white hair... smiles and i am about as ready for Christmas as i am gona get...

Anonymous said...

LOL Nilla If I had more time to play tonight I would fix Iris up with a Santa hat right now LOL, but I have to pass on that one LOL.

Nilla said...

Iris are you in Pa or Fla right now? I use to live in Jacksonville. Coming back to Fla last week of April 1st week of May for a big family vacation as of now 15 are going...

Anonymous said...

Was over on the ajc.com watching Buta Buta's newest video & some of the others. They were great. Little girl will be walking after Lun Lun very soon.

Nilla said...

LOL GloBug i bet you could i saw the santa hats on all of us at the party you added..lol

IrisF said...

Hi Nilla, Thanks, and I'm even kinda short and round like Mrs. Clause.:) Maybe I'll try to edit the picture and add a hat or night-cap.

Great Card Glo, I know Sharon loved it!

For all who are traveling in the next few days, be safe and have lots of fun too.

Anonymous said...

Hi Iris. Didn't know you were here!
Glad you got the link ok for the live feed.

Glo the front & back of Sharon's card
are very very appropriate - I loved it! Thanks again. I bet she gets it tomorrow! And yes, Nilla, I know she'll cry!

Nilla said...

Iris i am short n round to .. Ho Ho Ho!!! lol That darn blog engineer was working tonight whoes paying him over time wages?lol

Nilla said...

Ms JoEllen you have mail

IrisF said...

We're in FL now. From what I have been hearing, it has been very mild in PA. We've been having lots of rain here in FL. Still, you rarely have to shovel rain!!!

Glo, next year you can add a red hat/cap. Is anyone else a Red-Hatter by the way? I belong to a group in PA and one in FL.

Mits said...

Loved the pics of the card, Glo, she is going to love it....

Anonymous said...

Yep! Nilla - Partners we are

You have an email.

Iris, I almost joined when I retired.
Still thinking about it... I have friends that are Red Hatters!

Nilla said...

Whaoooooooo Iris i am not a RedHatter to be honest i am almost 60 but thats just not me... Besides I HAVE RED HAIR and red hat would flash with it never ever wore red til recently always hated it, my sister who passed away was the red girl she loved red, i was always in blue or yellow...

You know what? I am about ready to sign off. Suzanne is off tomorrow - should be a nice long holiday for her. Long enough to hook up that PC ! Bet she gets tired of us saying that. lol

GLO you better 'GET R DONE' if you want to fly out of here on time!

Anonymous said...

Nilla Red Hatters wear RED & PURPLE !!!! I love that combination

IrisF said...

RedHatters do have lots of fun. I wasn't sure about joining but the groups I belong to are like the momsters! They all care about each other and look out for one another. So it's kinda like having a second family.

Nilla said...

Oh Jo you look so cute in a red hat with your rosey red cheeks and that twinkle in your eyes.. lol

Nilla said...

Yes Jo look next time you go into Cracker Barrel they even have books about them and also cook books... Duhhh now i do look great in purple...lol

Anonymous said...

YEs Iris, we are one big family here! If one has a problem -- we're here to lift you up and get you through! Caring and sharing!

IrisF said...

Hey nilla, I WAS a red-head too! Still a little bit of red in the back. Red and Purple were my Mother's favorite colors, and I rarely wore them. Now, I love wearing them, separate or together!

Maybe it makes me think of her, I know she would have loved being a Red Hatter. I don't think she ever went out of the house without a hat on.

There I go, getting mellow.....

Nilla said...

Hey while we on this 'togetherness' thing, let's not miss out another veeeerrrryyyy important part o` it – Friends! Nothin` seems complete without friends around. Be sure to spend some jolly good times with friends `n spread the warmth `n cheer o` the holiday season!
