Germany news: Christine just got an email that Patrick has arrived in Kuwait. He will be there for awhile - she is hoping for a phone call soon.

normabyrd said...

PAULA!!---we all sound as if we have been programed by the same person!!!------"THE STEPFORD WIVES!!!----ho!

Mema Jo said...

GOOD MORNING TO YOU, Norma!
Mits: Haze/fog doesn't make for a good beach day if you have little ones and can lose sight of them.
I bet that coffee cake was gooooood!

Glad to hear that most of you are doing laundry instead of mowing or yard work!

normabyrd said...

WONDERFUL NEWS JO!!!

Deb said...

First load is going, not much mowing here. We need rain, almost everyone got rain yesterday in SD except two areas. Unfortunately I was one of the areas. Some places got two inches. Another chance later today. I am glad I am not on vacation this week, no sun.

Deb said...

That site Chrissy sent is nice, thanks for pointing it out, Jo.

normabyrd said...

HAVE you read the story of the HUNDREDS OF DEAD PENQUINS SWEPT ASHORE IN BRAZIL from PATAGONA & ICELAND area!!---It was in yesterday's newspaper!!----Now read it on the NORFORK SITE!!----A debate about the reasons!!

Deb said...

I just got a strange blogger cop message, then it posted twice.

I saw that Norma, but didn't read the details.

normabyrd said...

I need to add the penquins were 'BABY PENQUINS'---

normabyrd said...

That means they (the blogger cops)
like you DEB!!----That's how I like to think when it happens to me!!!

normabyrd said...

Oh BEAUTIFUL HELEN!!----Watch that hazy sun!!-----The worst burn I have ever had----I got on a hazy sunny day!!!

Mema Jo said...

Ah Man! Blogger cop is also after me!

If I don't return it won't mean that I am not here! <:*)

Magpie may have made it to market & might be headed to the nest. BUT we
still have a naked nest!!

Not doing laundry but need to do some more "Clutter Pick Up".
I wish I could get in a 'pitching mood'

Hope this publishes!!!!!

Mema Jo said...

Wow! That was fast!
I guess the blogger cops went to get lunch! lol

NatureNut said...

Happy Sunday Morning to all!!! Looks like another hot one---& I have things I want to do outside, DUH. And an MT nest---nope Margy gets to go & see something there.
We have another wren birdhouse in a crabapple tree in front yard. Don't think anyone ever stayed in it, but when I came home from work the other day, Cheep, Cheeep, Cheep!!!!Saw tiny beak in the door. Will try to get some better picks to post.

Mema Jo said...

Be Back Later

Just saw that my Gal in Germany signed in to the Live Messenger -
Yesterday I got to see Elizabeth for quite a while on the web cam. Samantha came into view with a
Hi Mema Hi Pap
Bye Mema Bye Pap.......
Love those 6 yr olds!

Mema Jo said...

Before I leave - HI LORETTA!
Envy you with your cheep cheep cheeps

Just to tell you that I so love all the butterfly pics over in your Nature Nook! They are beautiful!

Wanda is trying to get Magpie to find a caterpillar and watch it turn into the butterfly.

Mema Jo said...

C U ALL
Later this afternoon..........

jamie said...

Has anyone seen a "live feed" today?

Deb said...

No live feed since Friday, Jamie.

jamie said...

what is known of the eagle family ? Are the young'uns still returning to the nest to feed?

Deb said...

The last time they were there that we have spotted was on Thursday morning, if I remember right. Margy is going to visit the nest today to see if she can spot them.

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' JAMIE!!---We won't see LIVE until Mon.---STEVE at NCTC-- takes care of the blog---he will get some one to fix it!!---We have had trouble with it several times this summer!!----The '3 FREE LOADERS'--as we lovingly refer to our EAGLETS now & then --- haven't checked in for a couple of days!!!---They usually stop in for R&R!!!

normabyrd said...

Temp is at 89° now!!!----Think that means it should level off soon!!----Haven't had rain here either DEB!!!----

magpie said...

OKAY: ARE YOU READY ???

magpie said...

SHORT ANSWER: YES I DID SEE A SOARING CHILD EAGLE...ABOUT 90 MINUTES INTO MY TIME THERE. HAD SEEN SOMETHING SOARING WAY OFF IN THE DISTANCE BUT I COULDN'T OBSERVE IT WELL ENOUGH TO DISCERN WHETHER EAGLET OR VULTURE.....

SO THEN.....

Hedgie said...

Ready for what, Magpie???? Are you back already?? Did you see our crew?

Hedgie said...

Great!! We are crossing messages....will wait for more info!

magpie said...

... so then I hung out for a long time, parked myself at the Day Care, watched and watched, saw a nice family of little purple finches taking flying lessons and goldfinches and such....

Finally headed to the Training Building for a rest room break...

Came out and was saying, "Please God let me see something so I can take a little treat back to the Blog...

and then..Overhead: A big, Beautiful, soaring eaglet, he or she flew around for quite some minutes letting me examine all those beautiful feathers from the underside....almost transparent as it they spread out from the middle.

It then flew off, then in the same distance as the first time, two soaring things again a little to far to discern and I don't want to guess about it, but I think, eaglets. All this action was between 10:45 and 11:10 - I was yelling "Go into the nest so the others can see..." but to no avail.

Final report next...

Hedgie said...

What good news, Margy. You were honored by their presence, and now, at least, we know they haven't decided to migrate elsewhere...yet!

magpie said...

..by then I was getting pretty hot and smelling like tick spray and the lavendar relax mist they have in the Ladies Room and it was time to head for market before noon to catch Meagn's stand...

Found it, and let me tell you, Megan is more beautiful than her posies! She had a pretty little magenta-pink flower in her hair, I scooped up some bouquets, (two little ones for me, one for a relative birthday gift,) and one for WANDA, stopped at her house, but missed her...left her some posies, some blueberries, a note, and two enlarged pics of the Eagle Express, and the Eagle Express with Princess Eagle Paula...

Now I am home, probably might have some tick-control management to take care of, at times I was in grass as tall as I, went all the way to the nest tree looking for turtle shells, couldn't find any, but have a precious little feather.

Well, my friends, this is my Sunday treat to you. And, work never called me for anything at all! Now, this is a Blessed Day.

I guess it is natural for me to apologize for taking up so much of the Blog, but, I thought you would not mind a blow-by-blow.
PS: You should see Megan's Flower Power Van! She said she might not make it onto the Blog, so "HEY" and "HOWDY" from her too..

xo xo xo

magpie said...

Thank you Blogger Cop for not gobbling me up.

And a final note: The Live Cam television was Off in the Resources building.

Whew! My fingers are tired...
HEDGIE - hope you don't catch too many typoes....

magpie said...

Lunch time at the Hobby nest...see three still....

magpie said...

If I seem to be MIA for a bit, I have to get in the shower...scrub scrub scrub....

magpie said...

I'm quite certain my little feather, by the way, IS NOT AN EAGLE FEATHER...CAN'T TAKE THEM..
possibly from a young little bobwhite or something...

Off to get washed up...BBL

paula eagleholic said...

Wonderful report, Magpie. And No, we don't mind you taking up room with all the little details...makes us feel like we were there with you (minus the ticks and bugs!)

Glad you got to see some of our Mountaineers!

Hedgie said...

You had a really great day, Margy.
I bet Megan's flowers are lovely, and know that Wanda will be really surprised when she gets home from church and finds your treats!
Hope shower is cooling you off and getting that bug spray off you!
Thought for the day from Steven Wright in RD: "Babies don't need a vacation, but I still see them at the beach." LOL.
Speaking of beach...Candy, how's it "blowin'" down your way? Helen, has fog lifted? Surf rough, I bet!

magpie said...

You're more than welcome, folks, for all you have done for me...

I will take that little feather to STEVE this week...maybe I will get a chance to meet him if he is there...

Okay, Bubbles and Shampoo..here I come ! xo

Deb said...

Thanks for the report on the eaglets, Margy. I am glad you got to see them, I wish I were closer, but then I would want to go all the time!

Deb said...

Margy is right, it is illegal to have an eagle feather and the fine is huge. There is a National Eagle Repository in Denver where eagle feathers are kept for use by federally recognized Native American tribes and their people only.

This law applies to quite a few birds, so be careful what you pick up.

Ceil said...

Magpie thanks for the great report. Now rest. Little buggers are growing up not coming home as much.

Hedgie said...

Interesting info on feathers...I didn't know that. Any laws about turkey feathers? That's all I've got, from my own property!

Deb said...

-No, it is just migratory birds that there are laws about. I will have to see if I can find a list.

Deb said...

Wow, the list is huge! Here is a link to it:

Migratory Bird Treaty

Deb said...

Deb said...

I would think the fines are different for the various birds, I can't imagine the fine for a crow feather would be the same as an eagle feather. More research!

Ceil said...

Wow Deb. Even certain pigeons are mentioned.

Deb said...

No it is way less. I, also, think you would be fine to have a feather, unless you were doing something illegal to obtain them. EXCEPT those on the endangered species list. That is where you get into the big fines. I can't imagine someone coming after you because you picked up a robin's feather.

Ceil said...

Thanks, Deb.

Deb said...

I was surprised, too, Ceil. I thought it was just raptors, had no idea there would be that many birds on the list.

Hedgie said...

Gosh! Thanks, Deb. WHoops...I do have a Pileated Woodpecker feather, too, now that I look at them! So many of these birds drop feathers in my woods all the time!!

Deb said...

I don't think you have to worry, unless it would be a protected bird. I had no idea that common, every day birds were on the list.

Deb said...

I am down to the last load in the washer, towels in the dryer. I don't have to worry about them getting wrinkled, so I am off to run errands. BBL

Mema Jo said...

Magpie - You were blessed!
Happy that your morning was so
beautiful for you! Thank you so much for the full report!

MITS said...

haze has somewhat lifted, the guards do a fantastic job, they actually had to bring people completely in out of the ocean, but the sun was still on the beach, haze was just over the water....Norma, I am so careful about putting my SPF on, had 2 bad burns when I was much younger...

Mema Jo said...

EAGLE ALERT

GUESS WHERE

OUR NEST JUVIE

Mema Jo said...

JUVIE AT 12 NOON POSITION

Mema Jo said...

Quit scubbing MAGPIE
Get out of the shower

Juvie in nest looking for you

Ceil said...

I just looked in and Magpie the juvie listened to you. It is in the nest. As Jo would say Wahoo.

Mema Jo said...

Come on all my buddies

Look at the nest

And Share The Joy!!!

MITS said...

maybe Margy left them some food so they came back....good to see it:)

Mema Jo said...

Thanks for joining me Ceil

I can't get the others to hear me!!
lol

MITS said...

BOOYAH A VISITOR

Mema Jo said...

Yes, Mits! It is good to see one of our own!

I haven't gone to Kent forum to see if Tom Otto went up to the LW nest.
Let you all know if there is any report on it.

Mema Jo said...

They should have heard you Mits!!
lol

Ceil said...

I think you are right sister. Magpie left food for the juvie. We won't tell Magpie. Did you throw a nice fish in the nest. Just happened to come in Jo so glad I did.

Mema Jo said...

Foolish me - just had to check and be sure Live Feed was still down.
It is of course.


Wonder if he is waiting for food.

paula eagleholic said...

OMGOSH eaglet in the nest!!

Mema Jo said...

Been there about 15 mins.

Still cam just started acting up

Ceil said...

I did the same thing Jo. Wishful thinking.

Mema Jo said...

Kent Forum: EagleCam at Lake Washington: I understand through conversation with our cam coordinator yesterday that Tom will be removing the deceased bird for analyzation by necropsy tomorrow (19th). Not sure how long that will take or if it will even be possible at this point but those results will be posted when available.

hubby just left, I off to the sundeck...TTUL

Mema Jo said...


Use this link for Tom Otto's comments on the Kent Forum about why the climb to Lake Washington nest did not take place

magpie said...

Well, THAT was certainly good news...reading about what I missed but what A LOT OF YOU SAW!!

Makes our hearts do flip-flops doesn't it?

I was getting posies vased and placed, and doing a few things in the kitchen....maybe, someone/s will come back sometime soon...

One of these bouquets from floralgirl had AT LEAST ten different kinds of flower types in it, including, sunflowers!

Soooooooooo beautiful....I did already say I was giving that one away didn't I? Hmmmmmmm

xo

magpie said...

I was probably buried under the bubbles when you were hollering...

I have to tell you, that when I first got there, (To NCTC) I did shout in a low voice:

Gooooooooo Eeeeeeeeeeeeees!
Got that NORMA?

magpie said...

I was wondering if someone could post the lastest link for Buddy...

And also, wanted to tell you that both Nethy and Deshar at Loch Garten have fledged...Nethy on Friday late, and Deshar today sometime...Orange VS is the DAD, I think I called him the Mom this morning..EJ is the Mom....can't figure out why I get so confused...
NORMA: IS IT MY OLD AGE?

magpie said...

Also, when I first saw a soaring something, early on, I was closer to the Day Care Center, and was looking in the direction of the Nest and the Guard Shack, it was way over that way. When I saw the two later soaring, it was in the same area. When I left, the guard had said that he had seen, a couple of days ago, one of the eaglets swooping down over nearer to the nest area, figured it had its Eagle Eyes on something.

magpie said...

MITS AND CEIL: On the way to the nest I was listening to some GREAT classical music on one of the public radio channels, and it was all sponsored by the Baltimore Community College...thought of you guys...
xo

Mema Jo said...

Magpie we may have already seen this Buddy report of 7/17


Link to the Wildlife Center of VA

magpie said...

Thanks Mema, think you're right, this time I saved the link...should just be able to refresh and get the new stuff when it posts I guess.

Loved your stories much earlier about the grandchildren...THAT KIND OF STUFF makes our hearts do flip-flops too, doesn't it ?
Prayers for Christine and Patrick, and ALL OUR TROOPS AND THEIR FAMILIES.

xo

Mema Jo said...

Thank you Magpie! Means alot to have you all in tune with me!!

Mema Jo said...

Taking a quickie break

TTUL you know TTFN

magpie said...

PAULA: Maybe those two soarers were hovering over that field you mentioned the guard had talked about on your visit July 5..

Computer real pokey...gonna shut down and reset ..

paula eagleholic said...

Had to do the same here, Magpie...too much surfing, not enough working...

Got to go get some stuff done!!

paula eagleholic said...

Looks like the turtle shell and skull got moved around on this most recent juvie in the nest...picking at nestovers...

Mema Jo said...

I was just looking and you're right!
Turtle shell not there at 7:00 position.

Magpie - if you go right back to NCTC MY turtle shell will be laying on the ground under the tree! Thanks!

magpie said...

Boy that was me yesterday...!!!

Time for a little nap, (reading first, "On the Wing") then got some photo projects to work on!
Got some laundry, dishes, cooking done, and got the posies the way I want them...

Hoping for clear skies to see ISS again tonight...gonna lasso a friend in to see it too..she has a better viewing spot than I!

I see what you mean Paula..nest looks different....there were SO MANY SYCAMORE BARK SCROLLS AT THE BASE OF THAT TREE - REALLY COOL LOOKING...

Take care, don't work too hard, EVERYONE...

XO

magpie said...

I didn't have to do much to the posies...Megan has them all ready to pop into water! She bundles everything with this delicate straw-like ribbon, and embraces each bouquet with beautiful tissue paper...just had to take that off and VOILA! Into my favorite vases..

Hope Wanda gets home soon....her posies are in water in a jug, they should be okay, her porch is pretty shady....hope no racoons raid the blueberries though.!

zzz -time....xo

T-Bird said...

Good evening blog buddies-thanks magpie for the report! Hope you all are treating yourselves good today.

T-Bird said...

Sure wish we could have the privilege of some eagle(s) or "eaglat(s)" company!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

I pulled the cam up before I brought up the blog and I knew someone had been there. Didn't see the turtle shell and the little white thingy had been moved.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Yeah, somebody needs to go get Mema Jo that turtle shell!

Mema Jo said...

You didn't actually see the shell being moved - with just the still cam going.

Mema Jo said...

It is still sooooo hot here in the valley. Going to grill chicken and have a salad inside at the table!

paula eagleholic said...

We'll have to wait for the evening light on the nest to see if the turtle shell is still there...

T-Bird said...

good evening to all-heading to bedford after a stop in christiansburg-later

Ceil said...

Looks like the skull type thing is a little after 12 and maybe the turtle shell at 3. Hi Thelma and Sharon. Will there be lemonade in Bluefield tomorrow.

NatureNut said...

Hi Gang, Did a little flower potting and had to come in and take a panda nap!
I thought the nest looked different!!So glad Margy got to see some soaring & there WAS a nest visit. Every time I leave the Park, I stop in our eagle nest area, but haven't seen anything since the juvie flew over my head a couple weeks ago. They may all go closer to the river, as that's where the food is!
Now I'm getting hungry--BBL

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Ceil, I don't know if there will be lemonade or not. Haven't heard if it officially hit 90 at the airport or not. August 2 is Lemonade Days where they have a little fair here.

Ceil said...

If Baltimore gave free lemonade after this week we would be broke.

paula eagleholic said...

I think the shell is at 6 in the nest...but the lower middle part

paula eagleholic said...

Looks like we have some rain headed this way...

Ceil said...

They are calling for heavy thunderstorms in Frederick and Washington Counties until 7:30. They will move our way later. You will get them soon Paula.

Ceil said...

West End 2 juvies.

Mema Jo said...

Storm seems to be moving in.....
Just light wind & dark skys right now.

Mema Jo said...

Ceil Has your neighbor come home from the hospital yet? I thought I heard you say you were watering her plants.

Mema Jo said...

If the turtle shell is in the nest it has to be turned underside up!

Now I hear the Thunder Boomers...

Still no rain drops........

Mema Jo said...

Raining in the valley
Still stormy........

Ceil said...

Jo, She had a slight stroke. Her son said she is doing better. They took her out of intensive care. I told him I will water her plants because she really likes flowers. I want them to stay alive for when she comes home. She only has a few boxes out front and some boxes out back. Nest doesn't look wet.

paula eagleholic said...

Jo, it does look like the shell is there, albeit upside down!

Costume Lady said...

Hello to you all...
We are having a severe weather alert here. Don't know any details.

Costume Lady said...

I have to quickly thank Margy for the treat she left for me on my porch...(Dustin wants his turn with the mouse).
MARGY...We always visit with GeeGee after church...so sorry we missed you. You know where she lives,stop by on a Sunday afternoon and visit with us. That is the only place where we can surely be found, always. You never know when we are going to be home.
I knew just as soon as I saw the flowers, as we pulled into the driveway, that they were Meggy's and that you had brought them by.
Blueberries are in the freezer and will be my treat later tonight! Love the almost life size photo of the Eagle Express. Paula looks like a model, trying to sell motor homes! LOL
Margy is one of the sweetest, most thoughtful persons I have ever met. So glad she is ONE OF US!!

magpie said...

WANDA -
I'm sorry I missed you too! But after my trip to tick-city NCTC I would have had to stand 10-feet away from everyone and no hugs!

I'll remember that about Gee-Gee!

xo Go Dustin, your mouse now.

Mema Jo said...

Yes, Wanda - Like Norma says
"She's a Keeper" .

magpie said...

I got my timer set for 55 minutes to go out and check the skies...for the ISS...
one more night tomorrow then, when again...?

xo

magpie said...

Simply beautiful pose of the West End Chicks....

magpie said...

Nature Nut: Get your nap in? Guess the stormy stuff is working its way towards you too...

MITS said...

here in OC looks like the space station will be coming from the SW to NE at 9:00p.m.

MITS said...

moon comes up at 9:45p.m. so should be able to see it, as long as the haze does not get in the way

MITS said...

only thing we should be getting from Cristobal is rip currents, gee, just what we need more rip currents

eagle-eyed sharon said...

I got to see the space station last night but tonight it won't be here until 10:38, hope I have been asleep a while by then.

I feel truly blessed also to have Margy with us now! What a gem!

MITS said...

yes, MARGY, is definitely a KEEPER:)!!!!!!

MITS said...

MEI XIANG IS RELAXING WITH SOME BAMBOO.

MITS said...

every time I turn the panda cam on, keep waiting to hear the tell-tale cry of a panda cub.....but no news yet

magpie said...

If you guys will keep me, I'll Stay!
Thanks!

Sharon: Nice to see Mattie and Justin were BOTH on this morning...
do they think we are a bunch of CRAZIES??? I kinda get the feeling that Justin is a hunt and peck kind of guy on the keyboard...
I love his one-liners....I could learn something from that...eh?

xo

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Yes, Margy, Justin is a hunt and peck kind of guy! He loves getting on here!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Mits, I am always listening for that squealing naked mole rat too, but not yet!

I had a lovely hawk swoop down in front of my window this evening. Don't know if he snagged one of my little birds or not, too quick for me!

Two of my 4 baby cardinals are out here eating. I hope the hawk didn't get one of them!

I know, I know - hawks have to eat too but they can do it at somebody else's house! :)

magpie said...

SHARON: I bet it's cute as can be, watching him at the keyboard...


MEMA JO: Just opened the link to the Lake Washington's Tom Otto's comments, sounds very compassionate, the way they are handling things. I loved his quote from Ghandi at the end of his remarks: “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” –Gandhi

And the first link with the photos and nest-building, wonderful. Thanks for keeping our on-line graduate studies going !

xo

Hedgie said...

Sounds like no one got too walloped by the storm...more wind here than anything, but shut down 'puter to be on the safe side. Still raining lightly, but certainly not enough.
Lots of computer problems today...think it's network-related. My last response to you was returned, Margy, and now I can't get on my e-mail again. Couldn't get on Yahoo earlier either! Technology....argh!! Now watch the blogger cop get me...LOL.

Deb said...

I see we had company. I, too, noticed the skull had moved, so I knew some lucky people got to see an eaglet.

Deb said...

Check out the Grand Canyon today:

Grand Canyon

NatureNut said...

Went to B.C. to check Delta nest & those babies are getting big.On their Discussion had info about their Eagle Fest Day, July 14. David Hancock was there of course--& some great eagle pics.
We are NOT getting any rain---N of DC. We will roasst for few more days & maybe rain TU or WED.

NatureNut said...

Helen, you're making me thirsty for a popsicle, and we're out! LOL

Deb said...

Eagle ALert!!!!! One ADULT in the nest.

Deb said...

Gone, only there for two refreshes.

Deb said...

I think there is a fish in the nest. It is hard to see between the webs, ADULT BACK!

magpie said...

oh DEB - Thank you!

Deb said...

HEY, EAGLE ALERT!!!!

Deb said...

Oh, good I am glad someone else gets to see. Eagle still there, has head down eating.

Deb said...

I think it is still there, darn spidey!

NatureNut said...

Saw something dark in nest---real fuzzy pic.

Deb said...

After the last refresh I can't tell anymore if it is still there or not. I guess that answers the question!

paula eagleholic said...

I saw the adult for one refresh!!

NatureNut said...

Dark bird around 5 o'clock!? Also real dark at 12, but that might not be a bird.

NatureNut said...

Shuttle time

paula eagleholic said...

IT's back! Must be eating and maybe we can't see the head?

paula eagleholic said...

Shuttle will have to go by with out me!

paula eagleholic said...

Still there!

paula eagleholic said...

Eagle still there..eating

Deb said...

I saw a fish in one of the refreshes, Paula, so I think the adult is eating. There is still a dark spot at 5.

paula eagleholic said...

Hmmm not sure if still there

paula eagleholic said...

The really dark spots are not an eagle

Mema Jo said...

I see those 'really' dark spots normally each night - I don't think they are eagles...

MITS said...

ISS went by right on time;)

paula eagleholic said...

I think eagle is gone...

Deb said...

The fish is gone, so the adult either ate it all or took it with.

magpie said...

When I first looked, saw brown, then refresh got the white head, then head down like you said, probably eating...
Tough Choice! I did go out and saw ISS sailing through the sky....headed for NCTC ! came back in, looks like Bird all gone...

NatureNut said...

Didn't see the shuttle, just Jupiter & lightening bugs!Not even Wanda's moon---might be too hazy.

Ceil said...

Raining heavy here. Will be shutting down for the night. Pleasant eagle & panda dreams.

paula eagleholic said...

We certainly could have used more rain than we got here...

NatureNut said...

We're getting lightning & thunder, which we're not supposed to get!!!
Lights flickered--will shut down machine for awhile even tho we have surge protecter. BBL, I hope!

magpie said...

Glad you were on the ball, DEB! That was awesome!

Such an unexpected surprise!

West End Chicks bailed too...Eagle ESP....

and this Blog doesn't want to move!

magpie said...

Deer and racoon party at PixPA. Overnight, one doe laid near the good sized tree in the Middle of the pic....also just a good sized buck...might not be there next time I look....

Mema Jo said...

Going to get some ice cream...

BBIAW

magpie said...

Delta Eagles looking comfy in the nest..

Back to what I was gonna do but can't remember what it was now after seeing the Eagle and ISS...

Anne-Marie said...

Hi everyone, I want ice cream too.

magpie said...

MITS: Glad you saw ISS too...
Both times, here I am looking, see a plane with lights, rule it out, then look around again and there it is big and bright and zippy....

TTFN - -

working on a birthday photo project to go with the other flower bouquet...that I SAID I was going to give away....
