I dearly love that song!! Now I am gonna have to dig up a CD for the road!!
Good morning everyone
It is a nice song, Sissy.
Yes, Dana, we have both been up since 6o'clock and coffee is all gone. Time now for an early breakfast so that we can get the shop ready. Should be a busy day.
We live in WV, going to travel 5 hours and 10 minutes to go to WV and about 5 hours of that is in Virginia. Megan, Great song - sang my heart out with it!
Pandas are already at it this a.m.
Sharon and Sissy...no watching cams .....get to work:)
SISSY AND SHARON...I can't remember if you were here when the Eagle Beads were given out or not, but if you have them, bring them along and, if you like, wear them proudly, so all will know we are SISTERS. If you didn't get one, I will see to it that you get one.
I don't think I have any eagle beads but I need some I am sure!!
Wanda - no eagle beads here.
Mits, it is so hard to stay on task today. My mind is already heading up the road.
Massive turkeys in PA!! I've got the stuffing!
Wear yours too, Helen. ANY OF YOU THAT HAS THE EAGLE BEADS, BRING THEM WITH YOU AND WEAR THEM PROUDLY! I WILL HAVE SOME FOR OUR, AS JO CALLS THEM, "NEWBYS".
Wanda did not go to open house last year, never got them:(
OK, Sharon, one reserved for you and one for Sissy.
hmmm have not packed yet....
Not to worry, Helen. Have one for you and your sisters. They are sooo cute.

UPDATE FROM LISA AT BWO......Nest Update10/17/08:We recently had a group of turkey vultures on the nest, including an immature vulture near the cam.Also, we had a sighting of an immature bald eagle. This bird looks to be older than our Eagle Cam chicks from this season.
Sorry Good Morning Everyone....I'm excited to see everyone coming in for Open House.Cindi that we get emails from will be at the Open House but not the dinner. Can't wait to meet her.
LMBO, HELEN. Your sisters and the beads. :)WANDA'S WISHES HAS PHOTO OF JENNIFER WEARING THE BEADS.
Hey, Red...they will be waiting on you, as will we!
I am giving Paula some of the beads to sell, with proceeds going to the Cam expenses, so our wearing them will be good advertising. Thank you for wearing them. Will let you know how many are sold on Monday.
Good Morning all. I have to work tomorrow But I will wear my beads I love them and even the memory of hearing my name called and actually Wanda being the first Momster from out of my state that I got to meet.She helped me to feel welcomed right away and that meant a whole lot for sure.

Well, wonders never cease to exist!!OUR 30 SECOND CAM IS BACK ONLINE!!
AND IT HAS THE CORRECT TIME
Good MorningSteve, thanks for the reminder andwe sure won't forget! I see the still cam is Up/Running I am reading/answering emailsI want to read comments BUT MY BEADS ARE READY TO TRAVEL TO WV! Thanks Megan!!
It will really be a miracle when bot 30 second and live camsa are up together. Especially if there's eagles in view.
All we need now are some eagles!! :):)
You can really tell on the 30 sec cam how much the lower end of the nest has been built up with sticks.
windy up in Maine, but color is back on the cam
I was thinking the same thing about our nest being built up -- really doesn't look like too much room in the middle - guess we'll be able to tell better after we get an eagle or 2 in there!
*** A VERY HAPPY DAY ****AND A VERY CHEESE CAKEY***OPEN HOUSE WEEKEND*****TO ALL IN EAGLELAND***C(°ٿ°)DJim
they have done a great job, sprucing it up
I would bet that Lolly & Jack are in S'town today & even over at the nest. DEB IS IN THE AIR!!! ANNE IS ON THE ROAD !!! Sharon & Sissy are working theirtail ends off so to get out ofBluefield!!!!
WHOO HOO UPDATE ON THE TRAVELS OF ANNEThey are about 10 miles from S'townGoing to find Betty's to get something to eat. They will see us at Dinner

WONDERFUL NEWS, PAULA...YOU GO, GIRL!!
HOORAY FOR YOU SHARON FOR DECIDING TO QUIT. YOU'VE BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT.. SO YOU KNOW YOU CAN DO IT!
My eagle cam screen went black..anyone else have it happen.. Goingto close & try to bring it up..No luck I'll email Steve -
If I can Do It after 50+ yearsYou youngsters surely can!It is HARD... But there are soooooomany benefits - you have more $, you smell pretty and you have energy!Still have cravings..But my Buddy Oxygen is a good reminder!
My cam is OK MeMa Jo.
off to WVA...later:)
Whooppee!!!!!Just checked 30 sec. cam here at work and it says Oct. 17!!!!! Couldn't get Live open at home & no way here.I thought of another song..."I'm So Excited"!!!!Back to work-- trying to finish a 7foot banner. Unfortunately, all the vinyl lettering was cut out by one of the graphic ladies for a 9 footer!!!Deleting irrelevant stuff to make it fit & not waste text.
Just tried it again & mine is ok too.Thanks Glo - I have given it up for a lost cause. I best email Steve with an update.
Red - I used the patch for a couple of weeks, then finally ripped that sucker off.I quit last year using the patch also, but obviously picked up the nasty habit again.
Hey, I just had a visitor in my shop. Go to Wanda's Wishes to see who it is....
Now if that isn't up to the minute reporting and sharing too. .Thanks Wanda Great photos of you know who too.

Thanks JimPaula - that is so awesome....Thanks!
Is that awesome or what, Jo? I haven't gotten the email yet, although I sent it...I had to go look at the group to make sure it went through...Give the folks some time to check their email, first!
That is such cool news, Paula!! Can't wait! Couldn't respond or open up a new message bloc to tell you on yahoo...oh, well...thanks for wonderful surprise!
I did get it on an email but like you I was looking first at the Momster messages.....It came through! Man - wouldn't that draw the crowds if it would have been known sooner and published! I wonder where Sandy found him? Don't have to have the eagle puppet now.
Magpie here, reading all the great news, and heading to Wanda's Wishes...got Paula's Special Guest email...Name tags at the Production Building?I think I got my bank of sleep in...hope so, think it won't matter with all the excitement energy...and I got six rolls of film for my old-fashioned camera !xoxo

Sheperdstown will never be the same after this week-end!
Good evening everyone.
I guess a lot of you are traveling, packing, etc. Sharon, Bev and Mattie Jane are a couple of hours on the road. Prayers for safe travels to all.
Just had 2 brain cells come together for a thought---Re: Special Guest at NCTC. (I'm guessing it might be a Big Bird-can't get email at work)Since too late to publish anything, how 'bout calling a local TV station for the News???
I thought the special guest was/is an educational bald eagle?
Hi T-Bird. You are right, about the Educational Bald Eagle, and He or She will be situated near the Momsters Table, and the Production Building (The Bathroom Building) just down from the Day Care Center.xoxo Good to "see" you T-Bird, as always xoxo
Headed out!Margy you can go over to the eagles'nest - your name was on thesecurity list..

Thelma, I will be sure to give your beads to one of the Bluefield Sisters! We will all be thinking of you and miss you.
Thanks a million Wanda-miss you to. I'm sitting here thinking this is just not right. Buddy's cheering me up though. You guys have a great time.
Hi Thelma & Buddy, I read Margy has to work now---Bummer. Hope she can get enough sleep in AM to later get to NCTC. Will you be in town?I've got still cam in another IE page, but have to bring it up.
Thelma - Hopefully you can attend the next get together!Heading home to finish getting ready for tomorrow...catch ya'll laterAnd Yes, thanks to Sandy Burk, we will have an educational eagle at the Open House Tomorrow!!
Hi LorettaYes Paula, I will hopefully be at the next event. I know you will take lots of great pics.
I must be going batty, but there is something in the nest down from 12 o'clock that looks just like an eagle bust! Probably just a sycamore leaf, but I saved pic to study.
eagle in our nest
I wonder if anyone is there?
what a beautiful sight
I think it is Belle
It looks like she's looking at Liberty around the nest but I can't tell, ofcourse.
Still just one
Loretta-I just called and told Bev and Sharon that we had an eagle in the nest. They said MITS and some others just left the nest to go to dinner. :(
I feel like Liberty and Belle are in the spot light this weekend. They are stars!!!!
Man I love those birds!!
I surely hope somenone is ordering stuffed turtle shell with a salmon chaser at Rumney's right now. :)
Eagle still there!!!! And I'm starving---Food other end of the house! LOL
that's right glo
She sure is hanging out, not doing any work, for a long time. It is like she's waiting on, either Liberty, or someone to take her picture. :)
I wonder if it's raining in Shepherdstown?
Still hanging out. :)
I'm not gonna worry about the silly thing I saw in nest before---We've got the real thing!!Wonder if any of the gang drove back to the nest?
I don't know Loretta-I just can't believe how long she is just hanging out, not moving, except looking for Liberty (I think).
getting ready to go
POOF!! Gone at 6:40.Wonder if we should scarf down dinner tomorrow & zip to the nest?
well that was nice...made my fried egg sandwich supper taste better for sure.
6:30 am go to the nest YES
during the day with so many people you may not have as good a chance to see them. But they just might surprise everyone.
Glo, I wish!! Be getting up by then & plan to leave for WV about 8AM.
I know ssome of the grroup brought laptops. Hope I can post some pics on Blog later----lots to do.
How far away are you naturenut.We got there while it was still dark last year on Sunday morning. It was awesome waiting for sunrise and then hard to even find the words when they were both sitting side by side up above the nest. The dark of their feathers made a heart formation. I shall never forget. The two gals with me still laugh at my excitement as I started my best memories of the weekend photos.We got up at like 4:30am. but I was so excited I didn't even need an alrm to get up. I was ready for that car to head me to the nest.After seeing the eagles we headed back to where we were staying and got dressed to head into Romney to enjoy the eagle train It was a long but absolutley awesome day.Well do enjoy your day tomorrow. I am sure you all will enjoy it very very much. I hope Lib and Belle do make an appearance during the day. It would be doubly awesome if Bob happens to be there with his cam when that happens. We could surely use a professional photo of those 2
Hope you guys have a great time!
Thanks, Lisa. Hope that you can visit sometime in the future!!
Maybe they got to see them!
hi Paula-I didn't know you quit smoking. Congrats!!!
Thanks Tbird!You always seem to bring the eagles around!
Hi all, ate something & Just Postedsome of Tonight's NEST VISITHope the WV crew w/laptops can see them.Glo, I understand what you meant about getting up early to see the nest. Was that last fall? Sounds like a glorious sight! I live about 2 hours away, I guess.(Will ffind out) Think I'm a good 1/2 hr. further than Helen as the Beltway goes.Maybe we should email Bob about being there at prime times.Think he was kidding around last week about staying late at nest & missing dinner!Paula, hope you're done cooking & can get some rest tonight!! What a trooper you are!
LorettaWhat time are you heading out?PaulaWhen will you be seeing some of the momsters and dadsters?
My goal was to finish up some chores around here & get to bed at 10. Fat Chance!!!!
Thelma, I was planning to leave at 8 ish.Gotta clean up kitchen,,BBL maybe
later Loretta-stay safe tomorrow
Hey all! We made it. The trip went very well. We made it in time to see everyone over at the Rumsey. So glad to be here!! Wish you were here~~
