Costume Lady said...

I am wondering what the head count is on our dinner choices. Rumsey Menu or Buffet...I wasn't quite sure what the buffet was all about or how to choose from it. I didn't know they had a buffet. I guess it is just for Private Dining.

Floralgirl said...

Hello Sharon:)
I chose the menu, Wanda.

Red said...

Since I'm not coming guess I should stay out of the voting even though Jo sent me the email. But those crab cakes sure sound nice. lol
I did send Paula my photo and hope she sticks me in a bloody Mary.

glo said...

Good morning everyone. You are making me hungry. Heck what I see on the menu is good times and lots of friendly memories. Sounds good to me. Indulge yourselves.

Floralgirl said...

Hello Red- I hear the crab cakes are delicious. Sorry you can't make it..
Hi Glo- we will miss you..

NatureNut said...

Good Morning Everyone! I'm the first one here & checked some cams. All nests MT--Finland & here.

Good Tuesday Morning to all - almost a full house! There's a chill in the air! Lunch is on for today with "old work gang" NO they are not old-
work is old to me

Thanks for the Eagle pics from this morning Megan & Margie!

Mema Jo said...

I'm still getting emails for the Dinner choices - there could be 30 of us. Making another call to Clarion today - so far Buffet isn't the choice of the majority.

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Jo ( :

Look at Finney on the water beautiful up close of sea eagle

Mema Jo said...

Hi Red - I didn't forget! lol
The new email about the dinner is automatically sent to every Momster member. We'll get you in the

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

ATLANTA PANDA CAM IS ON LUN AND THE LITTLE LUNEY!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Little Lun on atlanta cam

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

OMG!

Mema Jo said...

Well now I know why some of you didn't get a written response from Atlanta - you got the
REAL THING WHoo HOoo!

wvgal_dana said...

Neat O....Thanks Sharon and Sissy...got them up ( : Boy does this make the day even better.!!

NatureNut said...

NUUUUUUTS! Can't get cams on these 'puters :>((

Red said...

You can RIGHT click your mouse on the cam picture and then select FULL SCREEN but I still can't see the cub.

Red said...

Select Zoom them full screen.

wvgal_dana said...

RED cub is up near her neck by Lun Lun's right paw

MITS said...

Tuesday, September 16
At 10 o’clock this morning, interested panda aficionados will be able to once again partake in PandaCam broadcasts!

Lun Lun and cub go about their daily life together, completely oblivious to the schedules, task assignments, meetings and discussions, or the number of team members involved in their care. And, in spite of the cameras, lights, noise and periodic checks by staff, the cub and Lun Lun thrive.

The cub is taking on the plump panda features that make this species irresistible to so many. His once lanky arms and legs are filling out and his earlier uncoordinated movements are becoming more purposeful and controlled.

At this morning’s check, the cub weighed 444.4 grams.

Red said...

OK. Thanks Dana. Found it.

glo said...

Ha Ha well I am neither for or again the menu or the buffet. I am for you all feasting on the friendship. I think whatever you eat will be awesome in the company of friends. And well I will be feasting at home with Dex who is of course an awesome friend.

normabyrd said...

AHHHHHHH!---Isn't LUN LUN such a good MAMA!----she is so LOVING & TENDER when she touches RHETT--LITTLE LUN--OR LITTLE LUNEY!!!----

movin said...

GOOD MORNING, EVERYONE!!

i SEE you found the Pandacam on the mother and baby this morning.

The baby was upside down and getting a bath when I tuned in.

He's gaining pretty quick now and should break a pound (453.6 g) within 24 hrs.

The Lock Garten youngsters are still holding in the south of England, and everyone is wondering if they think they have arrived in Africa. Probably their instincts are better than our speculations, so just wait and see...

Good Morning Jim and newly retired Dave....when you get that computer we want to hear or see pic of Canada.

GloGood Morning boy a lot of people dropping in this morning. You have been to the nest and dinner at Rumsey. So you know what fun it is. Your comment sounds so festive. It makes me wish it was this Saturday. You will be missed by many. I know what you mean by Dex being great company. ( :

movin said...

66° and cloudy in So Cal this morning. But they are prognosticating a sunny 87° later in the afternoon.

They have been missing the mark on the high ... higher and lower ... lately, but it should warm up nicely in the P.M.

NatureNut said...

Hi Jim and Dave!! Can't wait to see new pics.
Nothing real exciting here at Park today except squirrel wanted to come in back door I had left opened! Shooed him out--& we have cute little chipmunk under the feeders & one Ms. Hummingbird sitting on top of her food tube.

normabyrd said...

GOOD MORNIN' INDIANA DAVE!!!---You have made our day!!---I am delighted you are enjoying your retirement!!---I felt certain you would want to go back to work as soon as you returned---ho!---(in my dreams)!!---Now you can scream----LIIFFFFEEE is GOOD!!! --ENJOY!

Anne-Marie said...

good Morning all, I am so excited I have butterflies. I am going to be worn out before open house just from excitment. I feel like a kid at Christmas.

Red said...

Can see cub panda nice right now. Camera operator is zooming in on it.

NatureNut said...

Mini- News Flash....The small wren-like bird seen in the Finney Big nest is a Northern Wheatear. Found in Eurasia,Greenland,barely enter No. Am., & in the thrush family.

Back to work.......

Costume Lady said...

NORMA, my hummers do that also, just before they leave for the Winter, as if to say GOODBYE. Then when they come back in the Spring, they come to the window again as if to say, HELLO. Precious little jewels, they are!

Hedgie said...

Hi all. Catching up on comments. Oh Red, you won't look half as good in a Bloody Mary as you would in person!! But we'll feed you crab cakes anyway!
Glo, what do you want us to get you??
Loretta, maybe that was George you saw, or whoever the vamp was who caused Martha's demise...remember the stories about them during the construction of the new Woodrow Wilson Bridge?

Hedgie said...

Chrissy said that she used to watch a cam that was along the Potomac w/ a view of tall bldgs. but she couldn't remember where or find the link...does this ring a bell w/ anyone? It was before I joined you....

paula eagleholic said...

Afternoon, all!

Eagle at BWO

Hedgie said...

HOw great to see the Atlanta cam back on...haven;t spotted baby yet! Lun is keeping him undercover!

normabyrd said...

WANDA---This is my first real try with hummers!!---I have 2 feeders up!!-----They are such a joy to watch!!!

Hedgie said...

OMG...there he is, cuddled in her left arm up against her neck!!

NatureNut said...

Lynn, maybe that was George I saw!
Didn't hear of anybody nesting there this year.It's too busy an area anyway.

Hedgie said...

Red, thanks for zoom hint! I learn something new everyday!!

paula eagleholic said...

Red - I can do the Bloody Mary thingy....

Mom is doing good today, she is actually breathing on her own...with some extra O2 and pressure support from the vent...they want her to exercise those diaphragm muscles that have been inactive...so they may put her back on the vent if she needs it...if she doesn't, that's even better. So today has been so far so good.

paula eagleholic said...

I was also able to talk to her and let her know she is getting better and help her understand why she's in ICU - it's hard for her to remember because of the sedative.

paula eagleholic said...

That eagle at BWO is gorgeous

Hedgie said...

Norma, hope your apptmt. in Winc. went well.
Dave...welcome "home'!!! We've missed you, but know that you were really enjoying the first days of freedom....were you soaring w/ any eagles?
Anne Marie...you will be one of OUR presents!

normabyrd said...

GOOD -- GOOD MORNIN' PAULA!!---How is your MOM?----keeping you all in my prayers & thoughts!!----It is nice that you live close enough to drive back & forth---but you take care & stay healthy!!---(get sleep kid)---MUCH LOVE!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Nice to hear that Atlanta has Mama and LunBoy on the cam!

Hedgie said...

Sissy, are you in panda heaven today or what????

normabyrd said...

HEDGIE---It was just a check up----But always feel better on the way home!!---

normabyrd said...

food time---

NatureNut said...

Paula, glad to hear things are improving w/Mom!! We have a lady working here who's Mom has been in & out of hosp. & rehab & she's been running to Ohio & back.

Thoughts & prayers

normabyrd said...

WOW SISSY!!---Check out the 'LITTLE PRINCE'---all cuddled up & lying on his grate!!---HE IS STILL #1----Little IMP!!

Hedgie said...

Paula, encouraging news. One good thing about the sedation...she really won't remember much of the ICU experience.

Hedgie said...

Must be a hot one in Atlanta....Lun is really breathing hard! What a lazy girl.

Hedgie said...

Yes, Loretta...so busy that I was shocked they ever built there in the first place! Well, anyway, we can imagine that it was George you saw!!! Nothing to prove any different!!

NatureNut said...

Lynn, It could have been George---you know they NEVER wear their name tags!!

I can't wait to get home (I think I just felt ill)& see Babylanta!!!!

NatureNut said...

Is that something in our nest???? Brown blob @ 5 o'clock. A juvie???

Hedgie said...

Lun just left baby....look at him!!!! So cute!

Hedgie said...

"This hay sure doesn't feel like mama's fur!!"

Hedgie said...

Oh poor Loretta...sick in the middle of the afternoon. Nurse says she must go home!!

Costume Lady said...

Is that sweet or what?

Costume Lady said...

Norma's little Pinky.

paula eagleholic said...

Boylun alone at the moment

paula eagleholic said...

Mama returned and picked him up just as I posted

Hedgie said...

Missed it....nothing there now! Shucks. We miss our juvies! Did you snap a pic??

NatureNut said...

Guess just some new stuff in the nest, or sun/shade. Oh Well!

glo said...

From Hedgie Glo, what do you want us to get you??

LOL A cup of hot tea with some chocolate chip cookies. Now there is my idea of feasting with friends.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I am thinking our juvies are long gone! Little Luney is looking more and more like a little panda and less and less like a nekked mole rat!

NatureNut said...

No, guess there was nothing in our nest.Saved pic & enlarged. I must be seeing things--def. have to go home!

Hedgie said...

Okay, Glo...tea and cookies for you...cheap date!

Hedgie said...

Dave...are you still on? Are you coming east for the open house???

glo said...

Ha Ha Hedgie and Naturenut this is sounding serious. I think you need to head straight home right away.

movin said...

Two eagles at BWO now. Beautiful pair.

movin said...

I was reading some comments about Hummingbirds...

I could use this tip around here, but I don't have the real estate in the back.

If you have feeders, you are likely having problems with a dominant, territorial male (or his male offspring) driving the others away from the feeder.

Hummingbirds can detect a minute change in the percentage of sugar in the nectar...of course the dominant male will grab the one with the higher percentage. So, if you have two feeders, put nectar with a little higher sugar content in one, and place it out of sight of the other one, perhaps in the back yard.

Yupper, he will grab the one with more sugar, and he will spend most of his time defending that one. In the meantime the other H. birds will show up at the one in your favorite viewing area, and they will be happy with the lower sugar content ... as long as it doesn't drop below about 1 part sugar to 4 parts water.

[I make mine about 1 to 3 ... more water in the hot months, less than that in winter ... at least some H.B.'s stay year around here.

A woman I knew at my old job used a 50/50 concentration and had a lot of birds. I don't know how healthy that is, and I never make it that concentrated.]

Separating them should work most of the time if you keep the two feeders out of sight of each other. The territorial male can't be two places at once.

movin said...

Have you noticed how Panda mothers hold the new baby near their face and breathe on them as they sleep to keep them warm?

That's what Lun Lun is doing at the moment.

movin said...

Panda bathing her baby.

paula eagleholic said...

Jim did you email me a picture of yourself yet?

paula eagleholic said...

Red - I did get yours...nice pic!

movin said...

ZZ is trying her hand at eating the bamboo, as her Mom is walking off her lunch.

Jim

NatureNut said...

I definitely think I should go home now!!Working on heavy, sharp, metal sign blanks & went in cabinet to get cloth work gloves & mousetrap bit by baby finger!!!!If it should be reported, Mgr. would have to take me to faraway clinic & get a drug test!!!! He said since I can bend it, it's probably OK.I may be the only one left here, but if I find somebody in other bldg., I'm gone!!!
See ya......

Costume Lady said...

Jim, that is an interesting theory on the hummer feeders. I will give it a try next season. Ours will be leaving in about a week and not be back til mid-April.
DON'T FORGET TO EMAIL PAULA YOUR PHOTO...it doesn't have to be recent, even a baby photo will do. Although, I would hesitate to put a baby's photo in a BEER BOTTLE! LOL

Costume Lady said...

LORETTA...a drug test? Splain.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I may be able to splain. A lot of businesses have a policy that if you have any type of accident, they do a drug test to make sure that is not what caused it.

Paula, did you get my email? :)

wvgal_dana said...

I see since I last commented we have joined us; Anne, Lynn and Paula.

Paula so good to hear your Mom is doing better....still keeping in prayers with you and your family.

Lynn do you remember Chrissy saying what kind of bird or animal she watched on that cam?

Loretta WOW nice spotting...could be either. They say the pair nested still in that area.

wvgal_dana said...

ALERT BABY PANDA CUB ALONE

wvgal_dana said...

LOOK QUICK BABY PANDA CUB ALONE

Mema Jo said...

Oh My Goodness - May the heavens be blessed...... Just signed back in.

That baby panda cub of Lun Lun's is all alone & I can see the markings on its little body!

Mema Jo said...

Like Dana Said........

BABY PANDA CUB ALERT

ALL ALONE IN HIS BED

T-Bird said...

I hit the jackpot too Mema Jo and Dana-lovely Panda marking becoming apparent

T-Bird said...

Is anyone else seeing this? Good evening/afternoon all.

Mema Jo said...

He was wiggling a lot but now he has
calmed........
I bet it was noisey for awhile.

Mema Jo said...

MOMMA LUN LUN HAS RETURNED

That was great!

T-Bird said...

I was thinking about the volume thing too Mema Jo

Mema Jo said...

He wasn't noisey

He was being noisy

I wish they had sound!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I am working and watching!

T-Bird said...

Yes it was a treat

T-Bird said...

Glad you got to see it too Sharon

MITS said...

yes, Atlanta does not have audio on its cam.....really would add to the enjoyment...wrote them about it 2 years ago.....as usual no response

T-Bird said...

Hello MITS-you saw it all too

MITS said...

nope Thelma...missed it this time but saw it earlier:)

wvgal_dana said...

So glad many of you got to see that sweet sweet baby boy....he is getting darker in markings. So precious....hard to believe such a large beautiful animal could have such a tiny baby and care for it so gently.

Mema Jo said...

Hey T-Bird - Sharon
Glad you saw him - I was not reading comments to see who was on! Great!
Mits - this little one is pudgy!

MITS said...

takes after his Momma:), Jo

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I am not sure but I think T-bird insinuated to me a while ago that Little Luney was named after me! :)

Costume Lady said...

SHARON, thanks for 'splaining to me the drug test thingy. I have been out of the public work force for so long, I don't know much about anything!

wvgal_dana said...

Does it seems to any of you that this little guys tail is shorter??? I thought Tai's tail was longer.

NatureNut said...

Saw LunLun for a little while, but on the last 5 min. refresh at 5:05 pic black, but says Ready. Guess that's All Folks!

magpie said...

Good Afternoooon...everyone!
Sounds Like Panda Time today!
Going to have to check the cam to see what I can see.

NATURENUT! Hope you are home now and ready to enjoy things from your home computer....mousetrap! Woof!

THANKS for the identification of the little Finney Land nest bird!

xo

MITS said...

lol.....Sharon:)

wvgal_dana said...

MitsAny thoughts about my question on the above comment about cubs tail?

magpie said...

Fabulous Eagle Pose at BWO Platform...
What pose ISN'T FABULOUS WHEN AN EAGLE IS INVOLVED ?

Hedgie said...

Dana, I don't know if Chrissy was talking about eagles or ospreys She was just sure that it was on the Potomac!
Littley Lun is so cute! Can't get enough of him...it is too bad they don't have sound!
Yes, Wanda, like Loretta 'splained...the hospitals/clinics try to do it automatically when it's work-related...but WV workers' comp does not require it, and most unions have managed to protect their employees from having to submit; of course, WV w/c doesn't take into account "fault"--they just always stick it to the employer regardless!

Hedgie said...

Most interesting concept on the hummers, Jim. I, too, will try that next spring!

Red said...

Hummers are territoral and the first one to find a feeder (male or female) will claim it and try to chase all other off. Two feeders will just be two battlegrounds.

Costume Lady said...

Lynn, I mentioned that my Grandaughter was hoping to get a job in Ashburn, Va. at an Inova something or another....well, it is called NOVA Spa. She got the job, I think. She is supposed to report there for orientation next Monday.
Did you find out anything more about Maridel?

Costume Lady said...

Oh my goodness, Red. Now I am so confused. How many feeders do you have and how do you explain all those that come to your feeder at one time? I have very seldom seen more than one at a time here.

Red said...

That photo of mine was taken during migration and they tolerate each other better then. During the summer it is rare to get more than one on at a time.

Red said...

I have two feeders. One in front of the house and one in the rear. Both have fights all day long.

Hedgie said...

Wanda...guess that's why I didn't know about an Inova facility in Ashburn!! Congrats to her on her job.
No...she's not listening too well. She called her doc...they were to schedule an MRI of her brain...she called the MRI place on Fr. and they hadn't gotten the order, and drs. office was closed. I told her again to go the ER, but since I haven't heard anything more, I guess she diodn't...or else they kept her. Don't know whether Bill 'puters or not...I will give her til morning and then call her again. We need to keep praying, Wanda, because I fear that it's serious.

Floralgirl said...

oh yeah, hummers are battling here right now, I can hear them out the window. if they are breathing, they are fighting. I was just watching six of them out on my deck. Some are really fat now, they are everywhere you go in they yard, I guess that's cause there are feeders and flowers everywhere. Current feeder count here is 5.

magpie said...

It's been an hour since any posts...guess that means NO EAGLES, HUH?
..sigh..

HEDGIE: Got you and Wanda's friend Maridel on my list...of prayers....which keeps growing...


xo

magpie said...

But we have racoons on Pix PA

magpie said...

..THEY WERE THERE....GUESS THE RACOONS ARE ALL AHEAD OF THE CAM NOW...

NatureNut said...

Back from dinner & now my Panda cam is working again!!! Is it for real or a replay?? (squeak, squeak)

Red said...

Time for me to call it a day. See Y'all tomorrow.

wvgal_dana said...

Loretta the Atlanta Panda cam goes off at 5pm our time.

Red nite tc

No matter how many feeders I have put up. There is always fighting and chasing away of hummers.

paula eagleholic said...

I would love to see the hummers battling it out, too. I generally have one at a time...maybe two.

paula eagleholic said...

The Dr. was pleased w/ Mom's progress today - she breathed on her own for 6 1/2 hours. Came home tonight and walked the dogs - was really nice - a bit of normalcy, if you will. Will go to work tomorrow for 1/2 day and head down to see Mom in the afternoon.

paula eagleholic said...

So, Lib & Belle were in the nest his morning? That's wonderful. Thanks to everyone who sent out pics.

Floralgirl said...

I am spoiled, cause we have them everywhere, but I do have a ridiculous amount of flowers for them, and lots of feeders...We plant blooming vines at our entry and they go almost up to the roof of the house during the summer. One is covered with bright red flowers, and they are in it constantly.
Hey Paula:)

magpie said...

Good to See you Paula, and to get the progressively better reports on your Mother....
xo

magpie said...

Hope the Mooon is out up your way, Paula...
I can look out my kitchen window and see the big rascal !

xo

paula eagleholic said...

I want to thank everyone for their positive thoughts and prayers for my Mom and my family

magpie said...

3 "o's" in Mooon 'cause it so big !

wvgal_dana said...

Paula so nice to hear the good report on your Mom. ( :

Megan you are envied lol

Floralgirl said...

That moon is pretty..and I have 4 moonflowers tonite..they smell wonderful.
Glad to hear your Mom is doing a little better, Paula.

Mema Jo said...

Thanks for the heads up Loretta
I need to read some of the news because they may be going 24/7 like they did with Buta Buta. LUN LUN is

magpie said...

You're Welcome Paula !

magpie said...

BTW - It's time for us to start getting our birthday cards in the mail for Mema's grandson: SGT PATRICK THOMPSON !

Mema Jo said...

Can anyone other then me think that they see Lun Lun's breathing?
She is so still.. I am staring at her and will probably jump when and if she actually moves.

WHOO HOO
Lun Lun moved!

THE CAM IS UP & RUNNING

paula eagleholic said...

Magpie - I'll have to take another look at the moon..was covered with some clouds when I was walking the dogs.

Floralgirl said...

That panda rolls around a lot...

paula eagleholic said...

Cool, Atlanta is On...saw it go off earlier...

Hedgie said...

My Atl. panda cam is really dark...is that normal for night time now that the preggers' watch is over? How can they see the cub? Do they keep a live watcher on duty all night still?
Margy, thanks for keeping Maridel on your prayer list, too!

Hedgie said...

Dr. House was a bit more curmudgeonly than previous season, wasn't he???
Paula, get yourself a good nights rest, ok? Prayers continue for your mom.
Megan...how are you feeling?

Floralgirl said...

Hello Hedgie, Been better, been worse.. two days into meds for sinus infection.

paula eagleholic said...

Glad you got some meds, Megan.

Margie, the moon is pretty!

I will be headed to bed shortly, Hedgie - early for me, but I'm beat.

wvgal_dana said...

tc Paula don't want you down sick gal.

Megan glad meds are working ..get better soon

Nite all for now

MITS said...

Well it looks like Atlanta is all back to normal, and running the cam 24/7 for the time being.

NatureNut said...

Been checking/doing emails. Only 710 to go!!!!
I'm so glad some of you have a Panda cam. I haven't gone totally bonkers yet (like my 'puter!!)

Paula, glad you got to spend some time home & Mom is progressing!!!
Prayers for all, Mason, Lynn's friend & all others in need.
Gonna go out to find the mooooon,
Margy!

MITS said...

yes, Loretta, another gorgeous moon tonight....GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE.....PAULA, CONTINUED PRAYERS FOR MOM'S RECOVERY

Hedgie said...

Glad you are improving, Megan, even if it's a slow-go!
Night, Paula and and Helen. Sleep tight! Megan, you better turn in, too.

Floralgirl said...

What, I'm being sent to bed?? lol...had to wait til ten so I know teenager is in bed.. off to pry comoputer out of her hands..nite all:) take care, Paula.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

So glad to see they are showing Little Luney again!

It is time for me to hit the hay before I go a Lot Luney!

Good night and sweet eagle dreams, my friends of fine feather and fur!

I have been on & off of here most of the evening. Phone calls and family visits -

Paula - it is good to have you here with us this evening. I am sure you are exhausted and I pray you have a very restful sleep! Good progress by your mom! Ventilators and sedation: Whenever that is the case just keep talking to her - she'll hear more then you think and it will calm and encourage her immensely. Sometimes even telling a person what day or what time of day it is helps. Just be sure she does her breathing exercises & pumps up those lungs!

Yes, Megan...eaglet-momster nurse here sending you off to dreamland! Rest is one of the best treatments for infection!
Night, Sharon!

Jo - Definitely been talking to her a lot - and repeating things too. Tell her day and date. She was actually trying to ask us questions last night. I think I figured out what she wanted to know and told her today. She seemed a lot calmer today.

Mema Jo said...

I am happy you are being so strong, Paula. It is very hard to see the one you love suffering. Must easier on the one doing the suffering, believe me. The ventilator isn't so bad but it feels so good when it is removed and they feed you ice!

You're doing great gal! Us oldies sure do appreciate our children being there for us! Bless ya, Paula.

Hi, how's everyone this evening?

Red, that trick with the Hummingbird feeders was from a H.B. site, and it sounds right to me, but I haven't tried it myself ... yet. Did you try the part about making the solution in one feeder stronger than the other?

Also, the site made it sound like the only bickering is between the dominant male and the others. But I bet you are right, probably the young males and maybe some adults from other territories would be battling for the other feeder.

My sister had two feeders at her place, but they were both in the front of the house. The birds there are Anna's Hummingbirds, and I don't know if they're more aggressive than other breeds, but they are way louder than most.

The big male would sit in a tree in the front yard and very noisily drive off whatever ventured to a feeder from dawn to dark! And they are literally so noisy that you can hear them 2-3 blocks away.

Plus there were younger ones flying about 200 mph through the covered patio area chasing each other.

Anyway, it was really way too much hassle, and they stopped feeding them altogether ... except they still have a few plants that H.B.'s like.

Paula, I'm really glad your Mom is getting better. Tell her we are thinking of her and praying for her, will you?

I know nothing of photos in the email, and I don't believe I have one available at the moment.

I did have a couple of fairly recent pics on the computer, but the Windows crash around the 1st of May took those out.

Why, what's the happening?

Well, Jim, your Anna's Hummers may have different tastes and temperament from our Ruby Throats. I don't think the idea of giving them a ratio of sugar and water at a 50-50 strength is very healthy for them. Your friend my be comitting Bird Abuse! (malnourishing them)
DON'T FORGET TO SEND PAULA YOU PHOTO.
Good Night Jim.

Costume Lady said...

Jim, if you will look at the photos of our last gathering in June of this year, you will see some photos of ladies who wanted to come but couldn't. So we (Paula) stuck their photos in a beer bottle and pretended they were with us. We will put your photo wherever you would like.
Red wants his in a Bloody Mary.
YOU DO KNOW WE ARE A LITTLE CRAZY, but we have fun!

Wasn't on the blog much this evening. I was getting ready to take my bath and was headed to the bathroom with an armload of clothes, when a SNAKE flew out in front of me. I dropped the clothes and backed AWAY and called out to Gene. I watched the snake until he got there with his knife, and when he pulled out the stand that the snake went under, it was gone. We have looked this whole house over. Under every little nook and cranny...can't find it anywhere. Now do you think I am going to sleep, knowing there is a SNAKE on the loose? Maybe I'll watch some auctions on EBAY til I get really sleepy.

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE
SLEEP TIGHT
PRAYERS FOR ALL AND THANKS GIVEN FOR THOSE WHO ARE GETTING WELL

p. S. wANDA, did you see what kind of snake 'flew out in front of you'??

Most likely it's non-poisonous and eats house mouses and does a world of good.

You have my permission to go to sleep.

magpie said...

Good Moony Morning to Everyone..if you didn't see it last night, you might see it this morning!

What in the world is that big white rectangular thing at the bottom of our cam pic?

magpie said...

Looks pretty, and foggy in OUR NEST this morning...waiting on the eagles ...

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE...
Margy, the nest looks very strange this morning...as if it were surrounded with snow and I have no idea what that white mass is at 6 o'clock.

magpie said...

Hi Wanda! Good descripion of our nest...yes, strange item there at 6 o'clock...
Did you get any sleep?

xo

Costume Lady said...

I slept very well, thank you very much. Only after taking a sedative!

Floralgirl said...

Yep, it's foggy here this morning, I couldn't figure out the white blob either...
