Good morning everyone. Thanks Steve.

Ceil said...

No eagles at BWO missed the one at our nest. Atlanta pandas sleeping. Off to see what Tai is doing.

Ceil said...

Tai is at the door and wants out.

Ceil said...

I am off to get some breakfast. BBL Have a good day.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good morning Ceil!

Robyn said...

Good morning Ceil and Sharon

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning! Thanks Steve. Ceil our visit this morning was very short, one refresh and they were gone. Morning Robyn and Sharon!

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING, Sharon, Ceil and Robyn. I got up too late and missed the visit.

Costume Lady said...

Good Morning, Sissy...I didn't see you there.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Panda breakfast in DC. Lot of loving happening in Atlanta.

Red said...

Good Friday morning Ceil, Sharon, Robyn, Sissy and Wanda. I missed our eagles this morning too. Sounds like spring at my house this morning. Got a mocking bird thats in love sounds like. lol

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Mocking birds are devil birds, Red. We had one outside of our camper when we went to the Outer Banks the last time. That thing kept us up all night. Sounded like a billion birds outside my bed every night.

MITS said...

Good morning everyone!!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning, Mits! How is the beach this morning? It is beautiful here in the mountains.

Red said...

Yes Sissy, They will sing all night in the spring.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Baby panda alone for all to see!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Baby gone! Sharon said bet they are giving him a quick exam.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Them bears are rasslin in DC.

MITS said...

Sissy, we have coastal flooding warnings today and waves of 8 feet, sunny, but windy.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

wish i was a panda

Ceil said...

Good morning, Sharon, Robyn Sissy,Wanda Red and my baby sister,
Those bears sure are rasslin.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Mits, is there a storm out there somewhere?

MITS said...

love watching them, interact, just makes me nervous, Mei can be such a bully

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

When she is done playing, she makes no bones about it, does she?

MITS said...

not a storm, Sissy, just high pressure to the north and lower pressure to the south and the moon and gradients and all kind of weather stuff coming together...produces coastal flooding, high rip currents and stuff like that...it was awesome yesterday, and bingo, totally different today, that's why I love living here

MITS said...

EAGLE AT BWO

Ceil said...

I could watch those bears all day. Lucky they nap a lot so I can get things done. Have a good day everyone. Off to get things done.

MITS said...

She is the boss!!!!

MITS said...

see you later, Ceil:)

Deb said...

I am off to say goodbye to Jane and Gabby. They are headed out to Idaho today. I have learned so much and met some wonderful people. Waiting to get in the bathroom.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Lun ain't never gonna get that ole human funk off of Luney!

MITS said...

I'm so glad you have had that chance, Deb.....

normabyrd said...

GOOD MORNING EAGLE BUDDIES!!----I slept till 8:00---will never catch up!!---ho!---DEMOCRAT RALLY last night --- then COLORADO beat WVU in overtime----WOE IS ME!!---must have been the JOHN DENVER music---ho!---"COUNTRY ROADS" v. "ROCKY MT. HIGH" --- ho!---

Deb said...

Good morning to you all! It is another beautiful day here, going to be in the 80's again.

Costume Lady said...

Deb, is this the end of your adventure, or will you have a chance to participate again at another time?

Costume Lady said...

NORMA, the EEEEEERRRRRRs let us down, once again. What's up with that?

Deb said...

Loretta asked if Gabby could be released again next summer. That is always a hope, but as of now it doesn't look good. He was rescued 3 times and came from the nest sick. In the wild he would not have survived any of those things, so maybe he wasn't intended to be free, maybe he was found to teach kids, hunters and fisherman.

MITS said...

I think that will be a nice life for Gabby.

Deb said...

It is a three year project, so I will be back again. I am hoping to go to Idaho to meet the birds that Janie has and, of course, Gabby and Beauty are high on my list. Mary, another volunteer, and I have been talking about going. I am booked pretty solid through January though.

Ceil said...

Deb, Sorry Gabby will not go free. But thank heavens for this project and people like you. You have enjoyed and it has helped the Gabby's. Thanks.

Robyn said...

Morning to all I missed :)

Deb said...

I do, too, Helen, i know we are trying to make ourselves feel better about it, but now we know that Gabby will have a nice long life.

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' STEVEN---CEIL---SHARON---ROBYN---SISSY---WANDA---RED EAGLE----HELEN & DEB!!!----It's a beautiful SUNNY morning here in the WV HILLS---a bit COOL--temp 47°----ENJOY these GLORIOUS days of SEPTEMBER!!-----GET WELL WISHES---MASON---PAULA'S MOM---TOM'S MOM & all other EAGLE BUDDIES--who need to be remembered in our thoughts & prayers!!-----LIFE IS GOOD!---just look in on our new little panda boy!!!---IT'S A WONDERFUL WORLD---GIVE THANKS!!!

MITS said...

and in the end, that is what is important, Deb

Deb said...

Bye, all. I will be back early today, boo-hoo! No, it will be kind of nice to get back to a normal routine again. I have lots to catch up on at home, so it will be nice not to think of everything I have to do.

Eagle at BWO!

MITS said...

just like people, Gabby is a special needs bird, and I'm glad he is getting the help and love from someone like you, Deb, and all the other people in the project

normabyrd said...

DEB!---I am so proud of you!!!---These folks are lucky to have you join them!!!---Please send us an update---so we can enjoy your 'FUN THINGS' too!!----(have you gotten into the bathroom yet?)----JUST CHECKIN!-----ho!

normabyrd said...

OH WANDA!!---I think the 'EEEEEEEERS let themselves down too!----It must have been that 'ROCKY MOUNTIAN HIGH' air they were breathing----ho!----They play MARSHALL next week!!---LORDY!--LORDY! they better beat them!!---

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Baby alert!!

glo said...

Good morning all. I am back from coffee and dog treats. Had to reboot computer this morning when I left so I am a little later getting things read and posted. Beautiful weather here again as well. I will work in the yard this afternoon but have some errands and a little housework for this morning. I need a maid.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Lord Glo, don't we all!

MITS said...

eagle still at BWO

magpie said...

Best Wishes, DEB, things have a way of working out, for humans and wildlife...but sure glad you and Jane are part of Gabby's Plan!

Take Care, and Safe Travels..

xo

Good Morning Eagle Buds !

magpie said...

Water is like Glass at Finney Water Nest, and one Eagle at BWO -

and looks like Momma Panda is snoozin...

magpie said...

Oh, and a Hooded Crow at Finneys now..

magpie said...

And a Gobbler Party at Pix PA

magpie said...

I count 8 turkeys..at least...

magpie said...

** Friday is wear RED for the Military **

If you don't already have your daytime duds on...and today is pajama day, find some red ones !

xo

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

ok, I give. Would someone please send me the link for the PA camera?

magpie said...

http://www.pixcontroller.com/WebCam/WebCam.htm

I can't do the Blue thingy thing...

But this is Pix PA Sissy

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' GLO!----I agree with SISSY!!!!-----WE ALL NEED MAIDS!!---ho!---Maybe we should clean each others houses---At least that would be a change in routine----

magpie said...

That's the most turkeys I have seen there in awhile!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Thanks magpie. Have to see what ya'll are talking about. Too noisy not too any longer.

Costume Lady said...

I have posted a few photos of Virginia Beach trip. If you have never been in a tunnel that goes under a body of water, this is interesting. I would love to see a documentary of how they do that. My first time going through there was a bit frightening. (Wanda's Wishes)

magpie said...

that is, *IF* TODAY IS PAJAMA DAY...find SOME RED ONES..

magpie said...

I don't see a whole lot of turkey beards, so maybe there are some hens or jakes in that bunch !

Red said...

Pa woods cam Sissy,

Pa Woods Cam

magpie said...

Hoody all gone, BWO Eagle IN the nest...scrounging..

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Wanda, my daddy was telling us how they did that one time. I think they floated the tunnels out there and sunk them, then pumped the water out somehow. Would be a good one for "How Did They Do That?", huh.

magpie said...

Maybe I will learn how to do Blue Thingy someday...one of these years...

TTFN - got to get ready for the day and find some RED duds...

xo Good Safe Happy Day to all....

Costume Lady said...

We have seen those turkeys for at least a year now, and my hope was to see them bring some of their babies to feed and the deer also, but nothing doing. :(

normabyrd said...

WOW!--MAGPIE!---I think one could say there is a 'herd' of turkeys at PA site!!----TURKEY season will be here soon----

magpie said...

It's a nice little site, Sissy - during the bulk of the daytime you might not see too much, but early morning and late evening, and middle of the night....
Plus there are some nice links and photo galleries...
crows and blue jays and squirrels too, AND - I saw a CAT there last Sunday - I will send you the pic...
xoxo

magpie said...

I've not seen the babies either, WANDA - guess they might be pretty protective of them until they get their "Sea Legs.." going to check you VA Beach pics then off here for a bit...

xo HI NORMA!

Costume Lady said...

Yup, Sissy, that would be a good "How did they do that". It is mind boggeling to me. How do they displace all that water? Gene said they went under the water where there is soil and dug the tunnnel. I hate to doubt him, but I don't know about that!

normabyrd said...

HEY!!---'GIRL IN RED DUDS' When you learn to do the BLUE THINGY--maybe you will teach me??? --- ENJOY YOUR DAY!!

magpie said...

...Sure Will, Happy Lady Norma..but I bet someone beats me to it !

Love to all, Friends..

xoxo

normabyrd said...

WANDA!---GOOGLE 'BLDG VA BEACH TUNNEL'----some info--

normabyrd said...

DANA---I only see about 5 donkey this am!!---must be payday again!
ho!

Red said...

Wanda, Gene is right. Underwater tunnels are dug in the soil beneath the water.

MITS said...

good pics, Wanda

MITS said...

Friday, September 19
Yesterday, we were able to obtain another round of measurements on the cub. His body (from tip of nose to the base of his tail) has increased to 23 cm, and his tail adds an additional 5.7 cm, giving him a total body length of 28.7 cm. His neck girth is now up to 13.7 cm, while his chest girth is 19.8 cm. His belly had the biggest gain overall, adding 6.8 cm in a week and a half, giving him a belly girth of 23.3 cm.

This morning he weighed 589.6 grams.

That is what I found about building the bridge tunnel.

normabyrd said...

EAGLE at BWO site!

Red said...

The Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel is an exception to most underwater tunnels as this explains:

In summary, the tunnel structure consists of prefabricated composite structural steel and reinforced concrete tube sections 37 feet in diameter and 300 feet long, sunk into place in a prepared trench in the seabed and covered with a minimum of 10 feet of selective backfill material, and connected together and finished inside. The portals of the tunnels are anchored on man-made islands constructed in 35 to 45 feet of water, and these islands provide a transition from the trestle roadway to the tunnel tubes. Each of the four islands is approximately 1,500 feet long and 230 feet wide at the channel end, providing about 5.5 acres of real estate at a cost of about 5 million in 1964 dollars. The general surface of the islands is 30 feet above the average high tide water level. Heavy riprap armor stones of 10 to 25 tons each, protect each island from sea action.

Costume Lady said...

I will never take it for granite again, when I go into a tunnel. It is an AWSOME structural piece of work. Think about the tunnels into a mountain. Some real doozies out west.

Red said...

Tunnel under Mobile Bay in South Alabama on Interstate 10 was dug in the soil beneath the water. It's about a mile long.

Red said...

There's several good sized tunnels in Pennsylvania too.

normabyrd said...

RED!---Thanks for the info!---BOGGLES my mind to even think about it!!-----when kids were small we used to go to OC (bridge) or VA beach (tunnel)-----they did not like the tunnel!!

normabyrd said...

JO!---6 BURROWING OWLS---count them!!---ho!

normabyrd said...

This is SUZANNE'S "SAVE GAS DAY"-----will be back MONDAY!!!---don't you miss her???

MITS said...

always miss, Suzanne when she is not around:(

MITS said...

those pandas are still wrasslin:)

paula eagleholic said...

Morning, all.

Mits - the tides are also high because of the fall equinox.

Deb - glad Gabby is going to be kept safe, and an educational bird is great. Nice to hear you will be able to help next year also. That would be really neat to visit Jane's place and see Beauty, too.

paula eagleholic said...

My internet was down...back up now.

Did ya'll see the fish crow party at BWO?

paula eagleholic said...

I went on the Bay bridge tunnel some time ago, from VA to MD = was pretty neat!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' PAULA!!---How's your MOM this am?---Things were looking up yesterday!!---MOM NORMA SAYS:--make sure you take care of your self--sleep & eat---don't miss either!---Take care PAULA!---thinking of you all!!

Red said...

I'm gone for a while now. Having lunch with some old work buddies who are still working. BBL

MITS said...

yep, that too, Paula...we have little tidal pools up and down the beach...just went out and bungeed the furniture.

Costume Lady said...

I have posted a photo of a tunnel in Utah (I think), that was very long and I got a bit closterphobic. It was a lot longer than the Hampton tunnel. We do take so much for granted and have no idea what goes into the making of it. It's a Wonderful World we live in!

paula eagleholic said...

Immature Ewwiee and BWO

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Hello everyone. Every time we travel south, we go through the East River Mountain Tunnel and the Big Walker Mountain Tunnel. I do remember the days of driving across those mountains to get anywhere from here.

Costume Lady said...

Yes, Paula, do take care of yourself. When my Mom had her last bout with cancer, I was so concerned with her well-being that I didn't take care of myself. I tended to her for about 6 months, mainly making sure she ate properly and took her meds. When she go well and was able to take care of herself. I nearly collapsed, physically and mentaly.

MITS said...

Sharon, WAS IT IN A COVERED WAGON:):):)?

MITS said...

EWWIIEE gone at BWO, they are cute when they are young:)

Costume Lady said...

Where is the East River Tunnel, Sharon?

movin said...

GOOD MORNING, ALL YOU LOVERS ......... OF EAGLES AND OSPREYS AND FISH CROWS AND EEUUWIES!

MITS said...

great pic of Tai on cam #1, he is in the older yard today, while Mei and Tian are in the newer yard.

MITS said...

awwww he is eating a carrot...what a cutie-pie:)

MITS said...

and he is loving every piece of it:)

MITS said...

Mei and Tian are taking a break....resting near each other.

Mema Jo said...

GOOD GOOD MORNING TO EVERYONE!!
You going to blow away outside today in MD! Great to read comments from all of you!
Boy oh boy! Mits you have a true friend in Sharon - I thought she would come over there and smack you for that last comment! LOL

MITS said...

black birds at BWO

normabyrd said...

RED!---Enjoy your lunch----you may come home & wish you were still working!!---???---ho!

Mema Jo said...

Deb - I realize you are gone (if in fact you got into your bathroom and are out of there to meet Jane); however I am anxious to hear more about your weeks with the osprey when you come in to town. I just know you will be seeing BEAUTY in the future.

normabyrd said...

MOVIN' JIM!!--I think the immature turkey vulture is beautiful----look at his wing span!----

paula eagleholic said...

I hear ya, Wanda. Trying to eat decent and take my vitamins.

MITS said...

she loves me, Jo.....maybe she will make me delete it;)

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' JO!----we aren't having any wind here---Just a REGULAR BEAUTIFUL WV DAY!!---ho!

MITS said...

was soooo windy here last night chairs were blowing over

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

The East River Tunnel is where you get on I-77 in Bluefield. It is WV when you go in and Virginia when you come out. And yes, Mits, but it was nice covered wagons!

Mema Jo said...

NORMA The gobblers are back!

Sissy hit the PA woods button

Mema Jo said...

Well they are gone

Sissy hit the Little Luney button

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Baby alone!!

Mema Jo said...

Don't you have the urge to just
go down there and scoop him up!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Mema Jo, there may be more people on here now that would help in getting me out of jail if I get caught nabbing Little Luney! Remember, you all were willing when I was going to nab Buta?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

He is getting to be a butterball, ain't he? Momma's back now. So precious. (wish i was a panda)

Mema Jo said...

I really think we could manage it especially if you were to bring him to Open House and CHARGE a holding fee!

Mema Jo said...

Momma didn't leave him alone too long

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

She holds that baby upside down and cleans him like he was a lollipop. Funniest thing I ever saw.

MITS said...

now Mei has a carrot:)

MITS said...

or maybe a sweet potato?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Yes she does Mits and she seems to be enjoying it.

MITS said...

nope must be a carrot they way she is holding it

MITS said...

looks like she has an apple now:)She looks so content

Costume Lady said...

ROFLMBO! You gals are cracking me up today!

Mema Jo said...

It's no wonder that after learning to walk the first thing Little Luney will learn is to tumble head over heels the way Lun Lun rocks & rolls him around!

Mema Jo said...

Wanda What is the status of the Snake?

Costume Lady said...

A LOLLIPOP
A SWEET POTATO
NABBING
A HOLDING FEE
BAILING OUT OF JAIL
MAIDS
RED PJ'S
FURNITURE FLYING ON THE BEACH
DON'T WE HAVE FUN!

Costume Lady said...

Oh, my goodness. I have that bugger on my mind ALL THE TIME. Got up last night and when I got back into bed, my hand touched someting round and cold. I literally flew out of bed and was too frightened to scream. It was a lidocain patch that I had on my back and had fallen of. I guess I must have rolled around on it and made it cylendrical. Heart was beating so fast, I couldn't go back to sleep!

MITS said...

LOL....Wanda, we do tend to wander around a bit don't we????

Costume Lady said...

Check out my Lidocaine Snake on Wanda's Wishes. I wasn't kidding!

MITS said...

YIKES, WANDA!

Costume Lady said...

I see Jo has wandered off again. I guess I will get back to work too.

Mema Jo said...

I just had to go and make a peanut butter/jelly sandwich!

Mema Jo said...

ROFLMBO!!!! Wanda!!!
You're something else - I think I would have had heart failure but I
can't stop laughing!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Oh Wanda, how funny. I can just imagine you jumping out of that bed!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

So, is the snake still MIA?? I would definitely be at the Holiday Inn Express tonight!

MITS said...

ewwiiee at BWO

Mema Jo said...

BWO Vulture making himself right at home

Mema Jo said...

I am off to find my red shirt.....

BBL

paula eagleholic said...

ROFLMAO, Wanda

Floralgirl said...

Is the dreaded lidocaine snake native to this area???

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Oh Wanda, this may haunt you for a while. Thanks so much for the laugh!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

squirrel at PA

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Ya'll have done created a monster. If I lose my job cause of watching all these cameras, one of ya'll is just gonna have to support me in the manner to which I have become so richly accustomed.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Megan, I think the dreaded lidocaine snakes are available nationwide! :)

Lolly said...

Hello!!!!!!!!!! Been going through the blog. Lively group here today! Oh, Wanda....a Lidocaine snake!! OMG...I would have been hysterical!

Been loading the trailer. Not much to pack for this trip. Need to get to the bookstore and stock up on reading material.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I am going to go work on the house a bit. At least try to fold a load or two. BBL.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Watch out for snakes!!

MITS said...

ssssssssss!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

You know, I seem to recall a couple of years ago, I had certain family members who really thought I had lost my mind, watching all these cameras. Funny how things work out! :)

Mema Jo said...

I'm still laughing!!!

But I do hate the thought of a snake being in my house or even being in my yard!!!!!!

BBL Still haven't found a red shirt

Mema Jo said...

Lolly I sure hope this trip works out well for you and you relax & enjoy your reading!

MITS said...

yes, I remember that too. Sharon...now wonder who that was;)?

movin said...

Hahaha. Wanda, your story reminds me of something that happened to me in my late teens.

Living in the country just outside of Del Mar. One night I got home late, very tired, and I slipped into the rack between the cool, clean sheets, and I was stretching this way and that, enjoying the cool sheets and relaxing the muscles all over my body.

Slid my arm slowly under my pillow, relaxing my shoulder ...


All of a sudden my arm touched something cold and slithery!!!!

SNAKE!! My brain told me, and I jumped straight up out of that bed and onto my feet in one motion!

Well, my brain wasn't too far off. When my heart slowed to about 150, I pulled back the pillow, and there was a largish snake lizard. That's what we called them...I guess many people call them alligator lizards.

Didn't know snake lizards liked clean, cool sheets too...damn!!


[:~)]

Jim

Deb said...

Hi everyone, I am back home and caught up on the blog. I had checked Wanda's pictures when she was talking about the bridges and saw the lidocaine snake and wondered what on earth is that!!

Jane and Gabby are headed to Idaho and her camper is stored for the next 10 months.

Hedgie said...

Hi gang! Been ROFLMBO reading thru' the blogs...Wanda, think you should have put Lidey on Wild and Wonderful page!! But, since you thought it WAS a snake, we are to assume that Capt. Gene hasn't captured the slitherer yet, huh????
Lolly, have a great trip.
Deb, after today you will have to settle down to a normal routine again!
Mits, please don't blow away!!!
I can't say that I've been afraid of the tunnels, but when I see movies about fires or leaks in them, it does make me a little leery. Biggest pain is having to stop and turn off gas in the RV before entering, and then back on after coming out (our refrig ran off of gas).

Hedgie said...

Jim, never heard of an alligator/snake lizard....what are they? Definitely not something you want in your bed!!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Lynn, I have known a few of those too, but not necessarily in my bed! :)

Hedgie said...

Okay, Jim, I looked it up....does look like a snake...with legs! Ugh.

MITS said...

lol...Sharon:)

Hedgie said...

Sorry to say that I did have one in my bed in my past, Sharon!

Hedgie said...

Time to get last load of laundry out of dryer, and then head to grocery store...my least favorite errand! BBL.

MITS said...

you and me both, Lynn...hate grocery shopping

Deb said...

I put a picture of Baldy, Jr. up on my page (3 1/2 years). I was kayaking on Tuesday and saw an eagle up the channel in a tree. I went back for my camera and got pretty close to him (or her). He is getting ready to take off in the picture. Today when we went to load up Gabby, he was in the tree right in front of the tower, but guess who left her camera at home. :(

Floralgirl said...

Ewww....you guys are freaking me out- snakes in the house,ugh.. outside in the garden is fine..as long as we stay out of each others way. Now I am outside doing an awful job- GH has to be recovered and before I can do that, the old plastic has to come off-but before it will, the gazillion staples holding it down must be removed..my poor hand, I've got blisters on my blisters.. and I lifted a piece of plastic and there was a long piece of black rubber on the ground,.and of course I thought it was a snake cause somebody keeps talking about them...

movin said...

I also looked the lizard up again in Wikipedia... it is the Southern Alligator Lizard I encountered that night.

I forgot to tell you, when opening a bed for the night, I still pull the covers way back and look under the pillows...........

Here's the link to the lizard.

Jim's Snake Lizard

MITS said...

beautiful pic of Baldy Jr., deb

movin said...

Hi, Megan. You might want to use some needle-nose pliers or wire cutters to pull staples. Save your fingers for cooking something beautiful.


C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

Floralgirl said...

Jim, I am using needle nose pliers, and my hand has blisters from tugging staples out..now I will have to look under my pillow before I lay down tonite..could be a lidocaine snake or a snake lizard...

Deb said...

It is kind of a cute lizard, Jim, but not when you find it in your bed!! Outside would be fun, though.

Floralgirl said...

Eww., Jim, I would have screamed my freaking head off if I found that under my pillow, back outside to see if I've gotten every staple out- then a strong tug, and hopefully plastic will slide off frame..SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.........

MITS said...

sssssssssee you later, Megan;)

Red said...

That thing still looks like a snake Jim. Just has legs. I'll bet it still slithers when moving.

Deb said...

I like snakes, think they are so fascinating, but as much as I like them, I know I don't want one in my bed!

Red said...

I don't mind snakes either but there's a limit on how close I'll allow them. In the house is TOO close.

MITS said...

Foggy on frodocam...no falcons.

Red said...

I do have lizards (skinks)around and allow them in my garage. They keep the spider population down.

Lolly said...

Just saw Little Lunny alone. Sooo cute! Chubbly little fellow and I was surprised at his coloring, already black and white!

Got me some books, also some groceries. Back to putting things in the trailer.

Soccer game tomorrow, also mow the lawn, Sunday finish last minute packing, then Monday we are off!!

Lolly said...

And, I really think we better stop talking about snakes, etc. in bed, none of us will be able to sleep comfortably tonight.....especially Wanda!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I really don't worry about snakes making it as far as my bed. My four dogs would let me know really quick if there was one in the house!

Red said...

Be careful on the road Lolly,

Mema Jo said...

SSSSsssssssssssneak a look at this!

Mema Jo said...

BBL Red shirt is in the dryer...
I'm almost ready to go......

paula eagleholic said...

I don't mind snakes, except the poisonous ones....so, here's my snake story.

When I was 15 or so, my brother was in a High School AP Biology class. His teacher had all sorts of animals that needed babysitting over the summer. So we kept some of them down in the basement. Snakes, lizards, geckos, turtles, salamanders, and mice I think. They had a really cool ball python named Cleo. I used to wrap her over my shoulders, like a stole, and go get ice cream from the Good Humor man when he came into the neighborhood ringing his bell. Certainly made him look twice!

Ceil said...

Paula, I live in a row house and the boy next door had all sorts of snakes, spiders etc. One of the snakes got out years ago but when I go down my basement I still think that one of these days it will show up. I will drop dead.

MITS said...

sssssplit isssssss coming ssssssoon:)

Ceil said...

Everyone must be at dinner.

Apologies for my neglect on this site.  I'm thinking that it might be time to conclude this blog, as I started it before the social me...
