A FRIENDLY REMINDER: TIME IS RUNNING SHORT FOR LETTING US KNOW IF YOUR GOING TO ATTEND THE LUNCH ON SATURDAY, SO PLEASE DO LET US KNOW FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO MIGHT HAVE JUST CAME ON WE ARE HAVING A CELEBRATION OF CHRISTMAS LUNCHEON OVER AT CLARION HOTEL---SHEPHERDSTOWN,WV---SATURDAY 16TH AT 1PM--- THANKS AND HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!
NILLA You said Ok Jo usually on Saturdays the gate is open and since the guards know most of us ..lol wont be a problem getting in they know we are harmless..lolHowever The Saturday after Thanksgiving when I went to get my wreath & then to the nest - The gates were closed. You think because it was Thanksgiving holiday? Maybe we should call just to be certain- well we'll go to the curve if they are closed.
Thelam dear now would i yell??? No just getting everyones attention the time is passing by fast and will be saturday before you know it..lol
Now Steven if your reading this maybe just maybe you could make sure we have the ok to get in on saturday morning before going to lunch if the gates are open??
I don't want to go but I will be late if I don't. BBL
I dont know if those people in the house will let us go back or not Jo.. Always can try they were nice yesterday so who knows...
I need to go jump in the shower also .. sister be here soon and still in bathrobe.. BBL
Suzanne & Norma - I've had a lot of close encounters with deer crossing the road. At dawn and dusk, I never drive over 40 mph and am constantly watching for them (because that's when I see them in the road most frequently). In the past 4 months, I have actually "caused" 2 minor accidents by stopping for deer in the road. In both cases, the person behind me also saw the deer and saw me slowing down to stop, but the person behind them (who was driving way too close and was probably annoyed at me going so slow) hit the car behind me. Oh well!! They shouldn't drive so close. Something else I've learned from experience - when you stop for them, if you have your lights on hi-beam, put them down to low-beam and the deer can see better to complete the crossing.Great to see the eagle in the nest! I'm looking forward to seeing many of you at the Saturday lunch. Since Shepherstown is rather small, I assume that I won't have a problem finding the hotel.
I am home from my little trip out to see the Eagles. I did see 5 of them and snapped some photos I will try to get them uploaded at some point today. However I came on here now to sayThank You so very much I went to my email and saw there is a list of images waiting for me. I am in tears because you are so very special to me and are coming through to helpI am working on changing most likely changing Flight times to AZ and getting some extra time off. I will try to leave this weekend instead of next Fri. My Daughter needs some help to get all these finals and concerts pulled off and free her husband to be here with his Dad. I will have access to my email and all of these things and it is a wonderful diversion from this other difficult time for my family. MTBR We are waiting on Surgery time and date now and just trying to plug the rest in. ((((((hugs to you)))))))) I am emotinally very touched to see the email look the way it did as I came home.
Glo The good Lord is looking after your daughter by giving her Your strength and presence. He certainly does work in mysterious ways. All our prayers are with you and the entire family.
Saturday's Get Togetherhttp://www.clarionshepherdstown.com/You can look at Rumsey Tavern's lunch menu ahead of time if you wish.
NOW I AM GONE BBL
Yes, Glo, your EAGLE FAMILY is here for you:)!
Hello anyone who is here, do you remember me???!! Sorry its been so long since I last chatted. Thanks to all of you who have been keeping us up to date with the eagle goings on. Not managed to spot one yet, lots of empty nest but no eagles, but I am a patient lady, my time will come. Hope you are all fit and well and getting ready for Christmas.Doreen xx
eagle at BW.
Hey, Doreen, good to hear from you:):):)!
I have returned. Hello DoreenHappy to hear from you - Your little prince was being a devilish little guy early today. The new Gal in Atlanta will get her official name this week. There is an eagle now on the BlackWater Osprey cam. Doreen, they have brought up the Eagle cam at BW. Just checked and found MT nest in Maine and Kent,WA. Our Florida eagle is still keeping that egg(s) warmed - what they say - January would be hatching?
Eagle working on the nest again at FLA.
Yes, Jo, you are correct.
Speaking of working on the nest-- Don't you think Liberty & Belle have a good many sticks in the nest that need to be placed on the sides of the nest before those eggs come?
Yes, I do, they better get their collective butts busy:).
Do you mean collective BEAKS?LOL
ROFLMBO!!!! yes, collective, beaks, Jo
OK - I am going to drive out to the church and purchase my Christmas cards from the Youth Group. BBLFYI Mits: The email card you just sent was beautiful.
Eagle back at BW/osprey nest.
EAGLES IN M AINE
THEY HAVE THE SOUND UP AND YOU CAN HEAR THEM MOVING THE STICKS AROUND...COOL.
So, we have eagles at Maine, FLA and BW.
Never mind eagles flew off up in Maine.
2Eagles at BW/osprey.
2nd eagle just came into BW Osprey cam with a fish
the one that was there for sooo long just flew off, but one still at BW/osprey.
Ha Ha - first eagle took off.
Wonder why the other flew off when dinner arrived.
Our nest is MT but looks beautiful in the evening sun, with those white branches and dark nest.
Did he have a fish before, Mits? I saw him cleaning his beak and doing the crop thingy....maybe he had some in reserve!
Eagle has a nice big fish.
Good afternoon, my friends of fine feathers. I hope this finds everyone well. Glo, our love, prayers and support are with you always. This is the most awesome group of people I have ever met. I know I have been truly blessed with you all!!Hello, Doreen, glad to see you stop by. We have missed you!
Eagle is eating something and very quicky, cause I can't see to much left of the fish, Paula...love when they do the croppy thing.
Evewry time one gets in our nest the crazy lines start again.

Sharon - I have no idea what GMTA is: Got more then Africa Go Monday to Atlanta Get My Teeth Adjusted lolI'll go with what Mits guessed it was.
Sharon: Do you know if Mauley (Donna) is ok and just too busy with school things to be on the blog?
I just realized that I am on here all by myself. I am going to take advantage of that & sneak away for about 2 hours - I know that no one is going to know I have left! BBLThe eagle spirits have surrounded the nest. All is well.

SHARON, I need a new Christmas pic for my name:):):).
I AM SITTING HERE IN FRONT OF THE COMPUTER PLAYING GAMES & EATING CHRISTMAS COOKIES hA hA !!You caught me red handed
Boy, Jo, Nilla has your number....
I have 2 girlfriends, now it's 3 girlfriends, who place snowmen all over their houses at Christmas. They're on the stair steps, kitchen cupboards & tables, every shelf in the place, on beds and even on the toilet paper holder! Good things is that snowmen can stay up as decorations all winter long! Right, MitsI need to finish decorating the inside of my home..........
You right, Jo, I keep mine up til almost the end of January. I'm going to watch TV and put some more snowmen out, the little buggers are driving me crazy, I think they make snowbabies during the year they are in the attic, just when I think I'm done...more snowmen:):):).
Just a quick Hi Got so busy this afternoon I never did get to that nap I really wanted to take. No pictures uploaded from my little trip either, although I only saw like 4 eagles. May do that later, maybe not until tomorrow. I do have the new Loop up and ready though if you don't want to wait for the Feed Blitz in the am...just go have a look.Eric's Dad's surgery is tomorrow at 3:30 pm. my time...which is central Time Zone. There is no way to get him there in time for the surgery now so he has talked with his dad tonight and will talk to him again in the morning. Then we all wait for the outcome of the surgery and the Post Op Course. Thanking you again for upholding Jim in your prayers especailly tomorrow. Good Night all. Thanks so much for all the fun photos and comments today. it made a lighter spot in what has been a pretty heavy day. ((((hugs))))
Hope we hear from Dana soon. She had her DR appointment this morning at 11:30 or so. She is really putting forth a fantastic effort to get as many as possible to the luncheon.
What did you have at Red Lobster tonight, Jo? My leftover cheese biscuits went great w/ my leftover lobster and shrimp!
I usually get the crab alfredo...Love it. Only a half portion - it is so rich & filling. Did you go to the one in Frederick?
Sending positive vibes and healing thoughts to those in need....

Also my sister Linda who died collected snowmen and she had many many.. small world huh??? lol Your rite i got Jo number its 1-301-...-....///lol
Nilla, I buy snowmen all the time but give them as gifts. Have you heard from Dana this evening?
No i have not talked to her i know she was going to doctors about having the cysist on the back of her leg drained again... Think i shloud try and call her? She maybe laying down better not..
By the way Jo went to Cracker Barrel for dinner had the roast beef..
Hopefully she is resting - I'm sure we'll hear from her first thing in the morning. I'm going to try to pass by the nest before I come to the Clarion. I think.
I am suppose to go to CB next Tuesday with the girls I used to work with. We do it once a month..I love keeping in touch with them. They were my work family for 13 years.
I just love the Crackel Barrel, especially their buttermilk pancakes...I'm hungry...
Yeah, I thought for sure Dana would drop back in...hope she is ok.
And i am sure they miss your smiling face and that cheerful twinkle in your eyes... Bet they always wondered what you were up to when you did that...lol
Mits Don't tell me you forgot to get something to eat..... Seems recently that I am always hungry. Might need to grab that cookie box again but then the 'scales' are right beside my bed. I think I will just kick them under the bed........
Thelma i cant believe you never been to the Red lobster??? All the fancy food you eat with names like Alfredo Pastawhatzamycallitringadingiloz...
Nilla, I think Mits went to get something to eat. Wanna bet?
The pantry is bare....darn...I'll fix some hot chocolate with whipped cream on it
Oh yeah thats very nurishing Thelma have some toast with it...
LOL! Nilla...Rigatoni Puttanesca...rigatoni with chopped tomato and stuff very simple dish...next time you go to store look in the spag sauce aisle...your see a jar of it, although I think made of homemade is probably better.
One of the pandas was up eating bamboo might have been Tian Tian
Almost 5:30 am in Africa - I have both cams up but nothing moving...
Look the lil devil is up poor Mei just sprawled out on the rocks and he is aggrivating her
they were on cam 2 but went out of view looked like he pulled her ear
Right hand corner of cam 2 panda eating again.... Thelma get down there and man those camera girl.. by the way will it ever be your job?
Jo i had said earlier in another blog that the ngm Petes Pond will be closing Dec15th rainy season starts and animals wont come to the pond nor can anyone drive in its to muddy .. think its back up like in April?
Guess we have a couple more days of Pete's.I wonder what name will be chosen for Buta Buta. Anxious to find out this week.Mits sent you us a good recipe-Watch out for the black olives
Mei is in the spotlight on camera 1 no sign of the lil terror
vent checked mail Thanks Thelma
No Nilla unless I specifically ask to train for that job. I don't know if I would enjoy sitting there, I'd rather sit here at home and watch them or see them in person, but I don't know maybe some day.
Oh my blogger police stole half my message 1st part should be I love Black Olives have not checked mail
Ten thirty at night and the little prince is playing....... Momma Mei!I may have missed something because Tai is climbing up towards his corner.
Thelma think about it all those camera windows we saw the lady that day.... you be watching and then they come inside they are right next to you can see them... Now thats some real good perks huh..lol Up close n personal with the keepers .. get me in Oh and Jo for what goes on we cant see..lol Like when you showed me the room Tai was born in..
Is he nursing?
Mits On Panda cam 1 - what is Mei doing?
I had no idea black olives, were good for you:):). I'll try to get promoted to that job, Nilla. I will have to go thru that room everytime I sign in and get my supplies for the day, so maybe I can get friendly with the cam people.
Good evening, my friends. How is everybody this evening?My Mattie is with me tonight and already asleep. Not long before I go to bed. Have to get up at 6:30.
She sure is sleeping in a funny position i thought it was Tai nursing, but sont think so now on cam 1
You hear that Jo our own Lil Mits running the camera down there now thats impressive HUH???LOL
Sharon Hugs aww i think Mattie loves you alot. Does Auntie Sharon spoil her?lol Doesnt matter she can be the daughter you never had right!!! Kids know where they are loved
I just checked cam 1 and it looks like she is sleeping on her side, if that is Mei, it could be Tai, because I don't see him anywhere
Mattie calls me Sissy. Actually she calls me and my sister both Sissy. Before my gastric bypass (weighing 350 pounds) I was called Big Sissy and Beverly was Little Sissy. Now she just calls me Sissy. She is just a special 8-year-old. She is a great problem solver. She is a good kid (as long as she gets her way, of course). :):):)
GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE..TALK TO YOU IN THE A.M.
Good night Mits.
You can't see Tai - he had climbed on up above her earlier.. I swear Mei had been sleeping while sitting up - I see she has now laid down. Hi Sharon Loved the email I just got. You are very special to Mattie, I can tell. And I think she is special to you too.
Mema Jo, she sure is. I was there when she was born and that just did something to me! She has always been so precious to me!
Ok Thelma the receipt sound yummy except for the lil dead fish ok and i aint eatin nuffin my cat wont eat and he is pedigree...LMAO
Okay, time for bed for me. Good night and sweet eagle dreams, my special friends of fine feathers and fur.

Boo, I'm back, just looked at our nest and it looks like the sticks at the top have been disturbed, but maybe it is because of the nightime and making it look different...I check in daylight..Night again....Where's Jim?????
Mits did you eat anything??? Surely yu have some soup in the closet or eggs in the frig?? I sent you some mail your get a real laugh out of and i swear its a true story..

Now here in the States we have so many other cams to begin watching as the season begins for our American Bald Eagles Symbols Of Freedom, already eggs are in the nest in Florida, for a list of cams go to www.beakspeak.com My heart belongs to the Shepherdstown, WV Eagles Liberty & Belle they are in the nest alot now bringing sticks and rebuilding it and raised 3 eaglets 2006 season.

Ohhhh there is a thread to thank them over on Petes Pond i didnt mean here in this blog....lol sorry
Morning, Eagle world! I am soooooo late today! My electric went off last night, so the alarm didn't go off this morning. Sheba did her wake me routine (she's the BIG guns when the others can't wake me or get me up!), and my clock said 1430! And it was flashing. My backup battery is old, so maybe it finally died. Guess I'll get one today before heading home!!Have to check my mail, do a few things, and will try to go back and read the blog and catch up.All have a great eagle day. Oh, MT nest! But it's so nice to SEE the nest. Both nests at BW are MT too.Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!
GOOD MORNING EVERYONE have a good one, very windy in Maine today, that will be an interesting one to watch during the height of winter.
Eagle in osprey nest! with fish breakfast.
Morning, Mits. Both eagles were in osprey nest, 1 ate, still hanging around, other one went for breakfast, I guess. Our nest is MT, and of course dark in Kent.Read the blogs from yesterday. Carol, I always dim my lights when I see deer in the morning. if I can, I put them on drive lights, if not, just low, but let the deer continue on their way. Jim told me to blow my horn, but I never remember, and by the time I think of it, I'm long past them. I don't see them crossing often, mostly eating on the side of the road, but when they do cross, I give them the right of way!Doreen, glad to see you stopped in for a visit!Nilla, you're more than welcome!
EAGLE ALERT!! BOTH!!
Is anybody watching these two? They've looked around the nest, all 360° checking out the area. Maybe they're thinking where the new launch pad is gonna be...
One gone. Think Belle might have left, well, as typing this, Liberty took off too.
Darn, missed them, they will be back.
WOW, BOTH EAGLES IN FLA...AND THEY ARE REALLY MAD AT SOMETHING.
DAD JUST FLEW OFF, MOM IS SETTLING DOWN.
OK, where's DANA????? She never came back on after yesterdays' doctors appt.
She's probably having a hard time walking and sitting for any length of time. That's usually what happens when she goes to those appointments. She has to lay down for a couple days. Hope she's alright! She needs to be healthy for Saturday!Are you coming, Mits?
Good Morning all. Just about coffee and dog treats time here. Saw the montage Nilla I love your idea . I will certainly try. Does anyone know the end date for the contest?Jim's surgery is 3:30 pm central time. I work til 10 pm tonight. I will BLOG something when I get home as to what i hear over the phone when the kids call me at work.
Ok, got some pics of Liberty and Belle in the nest this morning. Sent photos to Glo. Also added 3 photos to Eaglet Momsters photo album. Dec 10-16 week album. Paula, I also started an album of the new 2007 season with photos I took of the nest in Oct and Nov called "Liberty and Belle 2006-2007 Season." You started one called "A New Season 2006-2007." We don't need 2 albums; if you want, I'll move my 5 photos over to your album. Since they were taken early, I'll put them in as first, since they're going in chronologically. Is that alright with you? Then we can delete my album. Let me know.
Eagle back and eating breakfast in osprey nest. (This is the one that stood guard while the other one ate this morning.)
I'm trying to work on being there this Saturday, Suzanne. You right, Dana always does have a few rough days after Doc's appts.
8:23amEST I sure hope I'm on the right blog page.I got some pics of Liberty and Belle this am.Took some at BW osprey.Gals I have to go back to bed. Got good news and not so hot news. So it comes with life. I had to take this new pill for pain. Last night.Today am I am sort of out and in..aorry don't do good on pain meds not my thing grrrr. Got to lay down before I fall off computer chair. Then I'll be a lunch Sat. wrapped in gauze from head to toe lol lmbo I would like good huh hee ehee ok not good sleepy see you later.PS still on the job
both in osprey nest now.
Great, Mits! I sure hope you make it!!Dana, take care of yourself. As you said, don't want you looking like a mummy for Saturday's lunch, all wrapped in bandages!both squaking at something, osprey nest.
LOL! was that Dana??? I think it was Dana, sounded a little woozy.
One left osprey nest, 1 still home.
1 just flew the coop at BW.
Oh just returned. One squaking, one showing beautiful wing, just arrived.
Mits, check out the osprey nest. He had his wing down when he came in, but it's STILL down like that. Hope nothings wrong!!
I was told when they drop the wing like that, they are drying off...maybe he just went fishing???
Oh there it goes. Sort of back to normal. Got nervous there for a minute!! Now he's preening and cleaning his wing. Hope nothings wrong with it!!
Oh, that would make sense, think he's the one that just ate breakfast. One in the back ate earlier. Phew, can relax now. Thanks.
Yikes, nasty lines at our nest.
Yeah, it's been doing that a lot this morning...lines and fading out. Just refresh a couple times, it comes back.
Yes, I noticed that, sometimes refresh works and somtimes...it doesn't. I'm just happy to see the nest and Belle and Liberty.
You and me both, Mits.Man, she's sure puffy in the osprey nest, huh? Preening now, but was sitting there looking all pretty with her chest just puffed way out!
