We are keeping our fingers crossed mits. It would be so good to have a baby! Good morning, Norma, Dana, and everyone.

Good Morning Sissy and you are right. It would be great to have a baby panda at zoo. ( : Mits keeps us so informed.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Good morning everybody. Slept in too late again this morning. Starting to work now. Have a wonderful day!

Red said...

Good morning Eagle-Eye's Sissy, Indiana Dave, Norma, Dana, and Mits. Sure is a nice day in North Alabama today to. Good eagle watching to you all today.

MITS said...

btw.....yesterday on my way home, I stopped at the Queenstown outlets to go to the ladies room...heard the familiar sound of osprey....when I came back outside, they were 2 beautiful osprey flying overhead....I was soooo excited, did not want to leave...yes a panda cub or 2 would be very exciting.

Red said...

And to you Sharon. You snuck in on me. lol

wvgal_dana said...

Good Wednesday Morning Sharon and Red ( :

I am reading Mondays comments trying to catch up.

Red I seen where you had to mow lawn. I think it was 4 acres. How long did it take you?

Red said...

Takes about 3 hours of mowing time Dana.

wvgal_dana said...

That's not bad Red Eagle. Use to take me 2 hours and I didn't have but 1 1/4 acres. Lots to mow around.

Floralgirl said...

howdy everybody:) Nice morning here, gonna be a hot one today tho. Hey Mits- I can't open Weather undergound this am- get a 403 forbidden message- says I need a password?? let me know if you are having problems..

Red said...

Here is web address to a gallery which shows some photos of my property. Check Birds in hand and hummers on page 2.

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Megan ( :

Did you sell out yesterday?

wvgal_dana said...

NORMA there are donkeys everywhere. More than a pace lol

Floralgirl said...

Full moon on Friday, "the buck moon" July is normally the month when the new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur. It was also often called the Full Thunder Moon, for the reason that thunderstorms are most frequent during this time. Another name for this month's Moon was the Full Hay Moon. We have seen several bucks with velvet antlers this week.

Floralgirl said...

Hey Dana- no such luck, haven't done that yet in DC. It's still a new market and it takes time to convince people your product is good quality and to get in the habit of shopping at the mkt. But sales are holding steady, and most people are friendly, so far so good.

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE...
RED...tried your url and it didn't get me to your site. Megan, I can believe the "Buck Moon"; we have quite a few bucks with velve antlers in the woods next to us. They are so beautiful in color this time of year.
DANA...good to see you on here. Hope you are well.
NORMA...you told me you didn't have a garden; did you ever garden?
Gardens are a LOT of work, but I can't imagine not having one. It is one of the most gratifying things of the summer.

wvgal_dana said...

Good Wednesday Morning Wanda ( : good also to see you and others.

Costume Lady said...

Megan, I'm sure your flowers are the most beautiful and fresh of all the Vendors....you take great care in what you do. That will make you successful down there. As you know, it takes a while to get returning customers.

Floralgirl said...

Hey Wanda:) try again, I got the link to work. Now I need to travel to Red's place so he can show me how to get a bird to eat seed from my hand.. a downy woodpecker no less.

Floralgirl said...

Yep, Wanda, takes a while for people to get to know your product-I'm the only vendor selling flowers, my ionly competition is the store flower section. I already have several regular customers, just takes some time. I'm headed back outside.. need to mulch some garden beds, mow grass, bathe the dog, etc... TTFN!

wvgal_dana said...

Wanda I also got Red's link to work...like Megan said try again.

MITS said...

Megan, I'm having difficulties, manuvering around hubby's computer so am not going to anything except e-mails, panda cam and blog....now it says the battery is low, so guess I better shut it off....

Red said...

Wanda, just copy the link and paste it into your address window.

Floralgirl said...

Can anyone open this?? It won't let me in- just trying to see if it's my computer or the site. http://www.wunderground.com

normabyrd said...

COMPUTER is GOING NUTS AGAIN!!---STUDY group this am---later!

wvgal_dana said...

Megan I just tried the link and it worked...

NatureNut said...

GREAT Good Morning Everyone!!!!
EAGLET alert here at Patuxent River Park. Our Maint. Mgr. saw BOTH eaglest in early AM flying in the marsh where nest tree is located!!!! That's the first time he saw them since he found the one near the road several weeks ago!

paula eagleholic said...

Happy Hump Day, everyone!

paula eagleholic said...

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Paula ( :

Red said...

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Jo ( :

Floralgirl said...

Hello again all of you:) 21782 is the zip I was using,Jo. That is the only weather site we use, and it is usually always up on the computer, last night it wouldn't open for me- get message 403 forbidden...sounds serious..lol.. anyway, in my business, the weather rules, so I am lost when I can't monitor it.. off to give the filthy dog a bath... he is really not thrilled by this bath news..

wvgal_dana said...

Hedgie said...

GOod morning all.
Megan, have you tried weatherbug.com? It might do in a pinch!
Dana...where can I link to the donkeys?
Sissie and SHaron...tried to send you gals an e-mail using the frontier.net addresses that Jo had given me, but came back as unknown recipient. So please check out the following site: www.stopsatellitetax.com
If you agree, please contact your elected officials as instructed on site!
Thought for the day: courtesy of Russell Baker in RD: "Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it!"
Good luck with your test, Helen...what kind is it?? How to talk to the animals?? LOL.

Mema Jo said...

Lynn - check your email
It is frontiernet.net

Hedgie said...

Great pics, Red! Enjoyed looking at your galleries! Looks like a very peaceful homestead, and can't believe the number of hummers at one time!! Mine fight too bad for more than one or two to hover at a time!
Very intriguing "belly" shots...are these "professionals" for customers, or are they your daughters/in-laws?

Hedgie said...

Thanks, Jo! My goof.

Hedgie said...

Gotta go...lunch w/ the Doc--my former boss. Talk to you all later!

Mema Jo said...

Last evening our jewell Magpie when signing off had a keeper :)

Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of our lives..

After all these years that is the first I ever thought of "Tomorrow" like that! lol

movin said...

Red said...

Hegie, I don't understand your comment about Belly shots. What are you refering to?

Red said...

ohhhhhhhhhhhhh!! Hegie, I bet you clicked on "Random Image". There are other galleries on that site besides mine. The Belly Pregnant belly shots are not mine. lol

Red said...

Also sorry about mispelling your name. I was putting Hegie instead of Hedgie.

wvgal_dana said...

Well Red EagleI was wondering about those belly shots myself siclmbo=sitting in chair laughing my butt off........next time give us a "warning" lol

Floralgirl said...

HA! Ha! belly laughs about belly shots... Hedgie, thanks for the weatherbug link- not a bad site, I saved it. Wunderground is opening for me now, they must have been having issues this morning.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I can't tell what I am looking at on the pandacam at Atlanta.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Oh, I see, she is on her knees or something.

wvgal_dana said...

I've been gone and all this time no eagles or eaglets at our nest. They must be cooling off at the river.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Must be Dana. I ain't seen hide nor hair of em.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

But I have seen a panda or two. Did you know I want to be a panda when I grow up.

wvgal_dana said...

No Sissy REALLY????? Wow have you checked into it to see for sure what you would be doing? Ya know when you change into an adult things become awlful messy.....

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

No, I only want to be a cub. No gross or weird stuff, just lazy and carefree.

wvgal_dana said...

I still hear the eaglet at WE but haven't seen it.

wvgal_dana said...

Ok the a "cub it is to never grow up only to stay a cub" got it....

Do you want to be in a zoo or in china?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...
