GOOD MORNING, EVERYONE.



Listening to "Deep Purple" sung by Bea Wayne, 1937....

"Swinging Years" on the local jazz station Sunday mornings.

Just beautiful stuff.

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE...
Ahh, Jim, you bring back wonderful memories of my sweet teen years. I don't recall Bea Wayne, but Deep Purple, by The Platters (I believe) was one of my favorites to dance with my boyfriend (now hubby) and we still love to dance to it. Thanks for the memories.

Good Morning Eagle Buds. Today is Nationa Grandparents Day ! So enjoy, if you are one, if you have them, or if you just feel like one sometimes ! From Google:

National Grandparents Day is a United States secular holiday celebrated on the first Sunday after Labor Day. The official song of National Grandparents Day is "A Song For Grandma And Grandpa" by Johnny Prill. The official flower is the forget-me-not.

Let's hear it for the Grandparents, and the Grandchildren that make it happen !

Good morning, everyone. The sun is shining brightly here, but it is going to be a cool day in the 60's.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good morning everyone. The sun is trying to come out in Bluefield. I have to work a while today so I will be on and off!

magpie said...

..And somewhere out there are some Mighty Eagles that are grandparents !!

magpie said...

I see I missed some Eagle Action this morning but was GLAD to read about them and see the pictures that Thelma and Sharon sent....
Aaaaaah!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

My pic on here are painted feathers!

magpie said...

Sharon, that is such a happy avatar greeting us with each of your messages...

xox

magpie said...

Oh Brother! Someone is yelling and arguing somewhere on the street....Sigh! Makes me sad....

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Happy Grandparents Day everyone. Really grateful I am not technically a grandmother and hope Andrew waits a while to make me one! :)

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning to Everyone out in Eagleland! It is a sunny cool beautiful day! Special Hello's to
those here this Sunday morning.
Margy, I just wish all the grandkids knew it was MY day today- However, they make EVERY day I have special!

Need to check out the end of yesterday's blog & my emails. I thank you Sharon sooooooo much for this morning's pictures!
T-Bird - I think it is just the sunshine in the photo! Gives it a mystic look!

magpie said...

Well I like those too, the feathers, Sharon....but the comment was about your Pretty Hairdo...

MITS said...

WOW...COOL FEATHERS, SHARON:)

Time for church...

xox Heading for the pillows soon Nice to "See" everyone here and there...Good Glorious Day to All, and for those who are working, well, I hope it goes quickly...xoxo

magpie said...

There is something on the platform at BWO - probably an Eagle but not all the way there yet...

No! check it...not sure, maybe a juvenile ?

magpie said...

It put its beak up closer to the camera for one refresh..almost looked like a vulture !

magpie said...

Okay Costume: Go for the Merry Heart - - - we'll join ya'

Hi to GeeGee please, and Gene.

With Love and a Hug too !

magpie said...

Whatver it is at BWO - there are two of them now..trying to get a capture of it...

magpie said...

Make that three....

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Magpie, I think those lovelies are turkey vultures!

paula eagleholic said...

Morning, all!

Just a quick check in...

Got Mom admitted last night...she is in good spirits and doing well...have to grab a shower and head back down the road to my brother's, where we will have a little bbq on the grill and then go visit with Mom.

Thanks for your prayers for her. She is a strong, stubborn (but not stupid) woman, and knows that she needs to be in the hospital, and then probably rehab to get better!

Mits, I'll yell at ya going round the beltway...she is at Holy Cross...Pleased with her care so far...but will be vigilant in assuring she gets good care and is taken care...that's my new role...and also to keep her spirits up, which at this time are excellent.

I'll check in when I can!

Have a great Sunday, weather is pretty today...and Happy Grandparents Day!

paula eagleholic said...

Oh, and thanks for the pics of our Royal Couple!

magpie said...

Does look like it in the beak and head at least doesn't it ?

Not exactly as pretty as an Eagle, Huh ?

Well, gotta hit the hay now, back in at midnight to I better catch some z's - back up to play later.

MITS said...

PAULA, will wave as we go by there today......let me know if you need anything.....:)

magpie said...

So good to hear from you PAULA, and you know where we have you and your family: IN OUR CONTINUED PRAYERS. Sounds like she takes after her daughter: Wise and Sensible !

xo

Ceil said...

I know you are gone Paula. Prayers for your mom. HAPPY GRANDPARENTS DAY TO ALL. Helen keep it down at the stadium today. Don't want to come over there.

Mema Jo said...

Take care Paula! I feel you are just as strong as your mother is.. Thank the Lord for daughters & sons!

Mema Jo said...

Helen you are going to have a great grandparents day knowing you are going to see the M&M's after the game! I know you have butterflies in the tummy feeling!

Go Shunshine! Romney days are blooming!

movin said...

There's a very good and complete update on the Loch Garten eyasses today.


C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

movin said...

I don't know if you settled it, but that large bird on the BWO nest is a Buzzard (Turkey Vulture).


C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

MITS said...

well, the only thing to look forward to today is getting back to see the nice people that sit around us, and seeing the new live Ravens flying into the staduim..not much hope for a victory, but it is just A GAME:)BBL

movin said...

Did you read the details on Moray's end?

It seems he encountered several storms and was blown this way and that before settling in the area where found.

His brother is still alive, but he's been blown by the storms clear over to Ireland!

I guess it's very good that Nethy and Dashar found some good feeding grounds and are holding there until the weather clears.

Mema Jo said...

BBL Son visiting

movin said...

Does anyone recall the name of those beautiful yellow flowers backing up the BWO nest?? It is "...something...sunflower" I think.


C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

NatureNut said...

Lovely Sunday Afternoon to Everyone in Eagleland!
Sad news about Scotland osprey :>(

Loved Sharon's hairdo--& now she's grown feathers! LOL
Paula, glad your Mom is in good spirits--thoughts & prayers.
Jimk, we have those flowers in the Fall along the riverside at the Park. I'll have to look them up--are called some kind of sunflower among other names.

Ceil said...

UPDATE ON ATLANTA CUB. He is doing well and so is Lun. She is eating more and he is getting his panda coloring.

movin said...

I think I stumbled onto the name of that yellow flower:

Coreopsis or tickseed.


C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

movin said...

Fish Crow at BWO.


C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

movin said...

The flower might also be called "Tickseed Sunflower" or "Golden Tickseed"; but there is one called Tickseed Sunflower, which is another unrelated plant.


C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

NatureNut said...

Yes, I found Tickseed Sunflower, found from N.Eng.thru VA, 1-5' tall, and blooms Aug. to Oct.,wet meadows, etc.
Will ask at work tomorrow what they call it.

Mema Jo said...


Read about ButaButa's b-day party


I know there is a new cub taking the spotlight, but I was very disappointed that the cam was not on the b-day girl that we have watched for 2 years!

There are a dozen photos when you click down on the left side....

Floralgirl said...

Hello all:) What a beautiful day today! I wanted to tell you that I saw two juvenile bald eagles circling above Shepherdstown today when I was at market. I just looked up and there they were, I watched them until I couldn't see them anymore, they went towards the river. Lots of white under their wings.
Also, I saw Mason's mom today, he is very close to being sent to a rehab center, which is a huge step forward, please keep those positive thoughts, prayers and good vibes going for this remarkable young man-
Going back outside to hang out with the hummers and butterflies. Hubby found some kind of fritillary caterpillar on my snapdragon plants- we stopped counting at 25- it's a jungle out here...

Mema Jo said...

Thanks for popping in on such a beautiful day to be outside! Are you going to the Green Turtle on Monday?

Ceil said...

Blogger cop ate my message. I agree Jo. they should have had the party on the cam. Hi, Megan.

Floralgirl said...

I don't know- I hadn't really thought about it- I will be going to the musicians for Mason concert next Sunday in Sepherdstown at the Clarion.

Mema Jo said...

That sounds like an excellent event Megan. I'll let you know IF I go to
the Green Turtle.

Thanks for agreeing with me Ceil.
I do feel they short-changed our
little Atlanta Beauty!

Mema Jo said...

Megan - can you find and send a link
with info about the Music for Mason
event.

Floralgirl said...

Ummm. hang on I'll see.
Hello Ceil:)

Mema Jo said...

I want to send it to Aaron up in Green Castle so maybe since he knows of Mason could attend.

Floralgirl said...

there is a very worthy benefit that will be held on Sunday, September 14th at the Clarion Hotel here in Shepherdstown. It is 'Musicians for Mason' and is being held to help out a local young man who was critically injured in a car accident about a month ago. A musical benefit is especially appropriate as Mason was to enter Shepherd University as a freshman music major this fall. Brian and Sylvia - Mason's mom and dad - own Ellsworth Music and Catering here in Shepherdstown.
The Speakeasy Boys (bluegrass), Love Machine (Motown/soul), and The I-Steadies with Sam Felker (rock) wil be playing beginning at 7:00 p.m. until 11, and tickets are $15 at the door.

Mema Jo said...

I knew I had seen something about events by someone in his Guest Book
Speakeasy Boys
September, 14 2008
Musicians for Mason
Clarion Hotel, Shepherdstown, W V
Cost : $15 Door

Musicians for Mason Ellsworth Sat Sept. 14 7-11 pm $15 Speakeasy Boys 7-8pm I-Steadies Love Machine 50/50 Raffle Proceeds Benefit Mason

Mema Jo said...

Now that should really bring in the funds for the family. You should really have a great time - quite a variety of music! Thanks!

Floralgirl said...

ANd there's this also- Concert to Benefit Battlefield Preservation and Shepherdstown Family

Ceil said...

Good grief the Raven won. 17 to 10.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Well, Ceil, you almost sound shocked! :)

Mema Jo said...

Well, Ceil my grandson Quinn will be in Raven Heaven. I am anxious to hear what is said about the teams mascots - Ravens!

T-Bird said...

Hope you had a good time at the game MITS-congrats.

Mema Jo said...

Hi Sharon!

T-Bird said...

I'm JEALOUS! :( (In more ways than one.)

Mema Jo said...

T-Bird - Maybe those Skins will come through for their fans next game!

T-Bird said...

I hope so Mema Jo-have there been any sightings?

T-Bird said...

Megan-sounds like you saw our juvies-how wonderful!!

Mema Jo said...

I haven't caught any sight of them being at the nest. Maybe right before dark we will.

Mema Jo said...

Going to see what is going to be our Sunday dinner.

BBL

T-Bird said...

Later Mema Jo-have something nice. :)

magpie said...

Great Stuff on the Blog today, as usual.

Hope all our Eagle Buds out there keep enjoying the day as it sounds we are doing so far...

MEGAN - HOW SPECIAL, TO SEE MASON'S MOTHER TODAY ! THANKS FOR ALL THE UPDATES ON THE DOIN'S.

Up from Panda Nap...got some chores to attend to. Sure is nice tgo "see" everyone..

xoxo

Ceil said...

Sharon I am shocked. Two of the quarterbacks are injured already. A rookie had to lead the team and he did a terrific job. Even ran in for a touchdown himself. I like to see that in a player. On opening day four fighter jets fly over the stadium. They have to fly right over my house very low. They are awesome

Ceil said...

Megan when said that was maybe our juvies. Two of them used to hang together in the nest.

Ceil said...

Jim and Loretta, They are tickseed sunflowers. Lisa at Blackwater answered my e-mail.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good evening my wonderful eagle friends. Been a lazy day around the house. It is a wonderful thing. Tom had to go to the ER this morning, back hurting so bad. I really thought it was a kidney stone but they didn't find anything. I am so afraid he has blown another disk or the same one again. Gonna try to get someone to order an MRI this week. Ya'll keep praying.

Missed the visitors this morning, thanks for the pics.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Wow, I would love to see those babies!! Bet that was great Megan!! Maybe we will get a glimpse of them at Open House. How wonderful would that be!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Happy Grandparents Day to all!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Where is everyone? I feel so alone!!

T-Bird said...

I'm here but I'm not sure how much that helps you. :) No eagles but I bet they are on the way.

T-Bird said...

Tell Tom I'm sorry about the Chiefs!!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

There is a thing on the History Channel about the Cold War Bunkers, including the one in White Sulfur Springs at the Greenbrier. Very cool.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Boy, now I know he is sick, he didn't even watch the game. Bummer!!!

magpie said...

We have a Mountaineer in the nest !

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

We have company!~

magpie said...

Wow - Don't feel so alone now do we ??

xoxo

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

What a treat. I was getting ready to put up the computer for the evening.

magpie said...

Now Two !

Holler Holler !!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Both of them!!

magpie said...

I got two pics Sissy, will post them in a bit...

Gotta keep watching first !

Thelma, please tell me you and Buddy are watching ! Tell him to bark LOUD !

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

and gone!! Thanks Lib and Belle!!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good magpie, I tried but couldn't get it, need more practice.

magpie said...

Okay - I'll put them UP Sissy on Yahoo Eaglet Group, here I go..maybe they will return.

Thelma: Was it your Magic Gaze that did it ??

xoxo

Hedgie said...

Hi, eagle buds,
Sorry Tom is no better, Sissy. MRI definitely indicated.
Had a good time at the BBQ/Bluegrass festival....ground had dried up nicely, so no mud! Nice shade and a breeze. BUT.....concession truck generators were so loud that we couldn't hear the music unless we got about 15 ft. from the stages. One stage had no tables/benches/tree cover, and there was not a cloud in the sky!
Did have some good food and they even had a "beer garden"...only had two drafts! I was stuffed!
The Lazy A campground is in a serene setting, close to our big Back Creek; there were electric hook-ups, but I didn't see any sewer/water, nor a dump station. Also, campsites are all out in the open, w/ no trees. Saw what looked like a big bathhouse/restroom, but it was locked up. So, Lolly...check out the others we have mentioned here!
Megan, sure hope those were two of ohr juvies you saw!
Thanks for pic from this monring, Thelma! I really think we have a ghost...hope it's not one of the juvies.....

Hedgie said...

Congrats on Raven's win Mits, Ceil, Loretta, Jo, Megan and Paula!
I, and I'm sure the Bluefield girls and Thelma, have our hopes up for our Skins next week!

Hedgie said...

HEading for a nice soak in tub, and maybe a little nap before Army Wives comes on. BBL!

magpie said...

You gotta be fast to catch these Evening Eagle Rascals...Sharon and I both got some pics up..

HEDGIE: Thought about you today, would loved to have been there...Did you do some Clogging ?
One of my dreams, to learn how to do that.

When I grow up I want to be a Banjo player !
I'm playing a Picking and Grinning CD right now...

Got to head back for a Panda Nap..
Love to all,
Be at Peace tonight, Prayers for all for comfort, joy, serenity, wellness, safety, and for all our Military !

TTFN..going in at midnight...xo

magpie said...

Wish I could get a Poop Shoot Facial for being #100 - I could really go for being turned into a Retired Person of Wealth !

Hope Tom will be okay, Sissy....
And Everyone else, who has health concerns.....and there are plenty of us in that category...

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I have a nephew that plays in a Bluegrass Band. They have a couple of CDs out. They are really good. Love to go watch em play!!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

She also has a nephew who is an awesome percussionist! I LOVE TO HEAR HIM PLAY! :)

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Magpie, you did get the poop shoot facial!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Yeah, but I don't think of him as a nephew. He is half mine. And he really is an awesome percussionist.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

True - sorry!

magpie said...

I fibbed - I didn't go to bed yet.
Started to unload the dishwasher, one last act before naptime, got to the silverware, realized it wasn't clean. Checked the Soap Dispenser, realized I never turned it on! Had to backtrack and find everything I had already put away!
I practically wash everything before it goes in anyway, but this is Gross! Good thing I live alone!

BTW- Grandparents Day was first proclaimed by WV Governor Arch Moore in 1973 - then in 1978 WV Senator Jennings Randolph introduced into the US Senate and it became a National Holiday.

Trivia for the night.
Now! zzzzzzz xo

Floralgirl said...

Whoa- Hedgie- I am not a Ravens fan...

Ceil said...

We will let you be one Megan

Floralgirl said...

Well thanks, but that's just not gonna happen...

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Well, my fine wonderful unfeathered friends, we are hitting the sack. Got up at 5:30 this morning to go to the ER. Been a long day!! See you all in the morning light.

Tom said hello and thanks for all the prayers. We are so blessed to have friends like ya'll!!

WAKE UP MASON!! It is football season!!

MITS said...

Floralgirl said...

Hi Ya- Mits- nice day to go to a football game. Bet you had lots of fun with the M&M girls:)

MITS said...

Ceil said...

Hope Tom feels better Sissy. I am calling it a night. Pleasant dreams everyone.

Floralgirl said...

Costume Lady said...

This has been such a beautiful day, I hate to see it end. But, as Candy would say, "Tomorrow is another day". Hope it is as nice as today. Speaking of Candy, I emailed her and asked that she let us know that she is OK...but no response. Maybe a trip to the Outer Banks is in order. Haven't been there in years.

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE
SLEEP TIGHT
PRAYERS FOR ALL...WAKE UP MASON, WE'D LOVE TO HEAR YOUR MUSIC.

magpie said...

I see most are beginning to head to the pillows...Good Night, and Good Rest for all.

magpie said...

So sad about Moray, pretty stark narrative on the Puleston Site. I feel for the little school children who named him....Prayers for the teachers who need to help them learn the lesson:
It is What It Is...

God Speed for the other migrating Osprey and ALL other birdies...worldwide.

Hedgie said...

Sorry, Megan! Who do you rout for?? Skins, I hope!
Where did you find the lit pennant, Helen??????
Hey, Wanda, I'm up for a trip to the Outer Banks! It really is my favorite place.
Prayers for Candy, Tom, Mason, Margy's friend, the schoolchildren who have to face the sad lesson, and everyone else in need! So much joy and so much sadness...please pray for my friend Maridel, too...I am very worried...was reassured that she was safe in Myrtle Beach--from the storm--only to find out that she is having a serious medical problem.
Good night, fowl friends.
