Deb said...

Good morning, everyone. I am up early today, it is cool here this morning at 28, but the windchill is 15. The wind was supposed to die down, but it is still going at 20 mph. There were quite a few power poles, trees, etc downed yesterday. Even the score board at the football field in SF blew over yesterday.

carolinabeachmom said...

Did I hear someone say that it was snowing in Bluefield WV? It is sunny here on the Outer Banks and a balmy 59 degrees out.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning all my fine unfeathered friends!!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

It is snowing in Bluefield.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Here I am Norma!! Late getting on the blog today. Didn't even get on at all yesterday. If I missed anything exciting, ya'll let me know. Someone has stolen Luney!! Find him, find him. HELP!!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' CANDY!!---Hope you have time to check MEGAN'S VIDEO!!---You will be dancing all the way to school----ho!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Bunches and bunches of turkeys at PA.

movin said...

Morning, Norma, Sharon, Candy.

Norma, it's too dark out to say what's happening here in So Cal as yet. Hahahaha. At least the Santa Ana condition has abated, and the early morning fogs, mists, and overcasts have returned.

57° now, and they're saying it will get up to 87° at the peak today.

By the way, I'm up this early because I couldn't get back to sleep after waking for the usual reasons. Could try to catch some more ZZZZZZZZZZZ's if the opportunity comes up.

Red said...

Good morning Eagle people. Cool in North Alabama today. Yesterdays high was 75, today it will be 55. Frost on the pumpkin tomorrow morning.

carolinabeachmom said...

Oh SHARON I hope you don't get too much of the white stuff. It is too soon for that.

Hey NORMA, no school for me today; teacher workday, that I get off because I worked the Trick or Treat Night at our school on Saturday. Hooray.

carolinabeachmom said...

Just checked into our nest and it is still frozen. Sure wish it would unfreeze so we could see what was going on there.

Wow, there sure are a few turkeys in Pa. Thanks for the heads up Sissy.

carolinabeachmom said...

I sure wish the cam operator in the Atlanta Zoo would fix the cam back on Luney so we could take a look.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Eagle at BWO!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Now we have 2 eagles at BWO. It is an eagle fix but not ours!! :(

carolinabeachmom said...

Two eagles at BWO and Lun lun is back with Luney.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

You can see the snow now on the Jefferson cam.

MITS said...

GOOD MINDAY MORNING EVERYONE.

carolinabeachmom said...

Good Monday morning Helen. Sitting here watching two eagles at BWO, turkeys in Pa. and Lun Lun and Luney interact at the Atlanta Zoo.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Pumpkin pie for breakfast. Now that is good stuff!! (even if I did make it!)

MITS said...

that should be MONDAY morning...hello Candy:)

MITS said...

Sissy, how were the chicken and dumplings, and Andrews' girlfriends visit?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Everything was good, Mits. Kelsey doesn't talk very much (at least not to us) but she is very nice. Her and Andrew sat on the couch and watched TV all afternoon.

MITS said...

I see the snow flakes in Bluefield

carolinabeachmom said...

Hey Sissy, you can pass some pumpkin pie down my No. Carolina way. That sounds yummy.

Luney is all alone at the Atlanta Zoo now. Mom just left.

BWO eagles seem to be keeping their eyes to the sky.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Be glad to send you some carolinabeachmom. I use fresh pumpkin and the recipe on a Libby's pumpkin can. Don't use the Libby's pumpkin, just the recipe. It is the best one I have ever found. But only fresh pumpkin. Andrew doesn't like the canned pumpkin. He is the pumpkin pie connoisseur around here.

carolinabeachmom said...

I have never made a pumpkin from scratch; only out of the can. I know it must be alot better from scratch, but that would be a challenge for me.

carolinabeachmom said...

SISSY Now that Josh isw in No. Carolina and not Winchester, Va., I don't get up there to get my apples for me and everyone else down here. :( Apple pie is my other favorite pie. Apples down here just aren't the same as the apples up there.

carolinabeachmom said...

Pumpkin pie goes right along with turkey dinner at my house for Thanksgiving and there are sure alot of turkeys still strolling around in the Pa. woods.

paula eagleholic said...

Morning, all!

Candy, are you playing hookey? :)

paula eagleholic said...

Maine cam is up, but looks like water drops on the lens...view is also pulled back

paula eagleholic said...

I think I'm the only one on here who doesn't care for pumpkin pie! Give me pecan pie!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Pumpkin is not easy to use fresh. I usually get Tom to get the junk out of em and peel em for me. Then I cook it and freeze it.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Blue sky here now!!

paula eagleholic said...

Adjusting cam at Maine!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Are ya'll watching Luney!! Trying so hard to be mobile!! Around and around and around.

Deb said...

A snow owl was spotted 25 miles east of here. I am headed out in about a half hour to see if it is still there. Mary is on her way from Yankton That would be so neat to see, so wish us luck!

paula eagleholic said...

Eagle at BWO w/ breakfast!

paula eagleholic said...

Good luck, Deb

2 at BWO now

carolinabeachmom said...

2 eagles back at BWO will they share the breakfast? Time will tell.

carolinabeachmom said...

Hope you find your Snow Owl DEB. Take your camera.

Deb said...

I always take my camera now, Candy! I learned the hard the first time I saw a ruddy duck (blue bill) and didn't have the camera with me. Luckily, it was still there when I got back about an hour later. There are wood ducks in Yankton, I was going to see them. They should still be there tomorrow.

carolinabeachmom said...

Boy the Maine eagle cam is up and sure looks cold and dreary there.

SISSY Looks like Luney has finally tuckered himself out.

Deb said...

Supposed to say "hard way"!

normabyrd said...

GOOD MORNIN'! RED---HELEN & PAULA!!---think I have GOOD 'MORNINGED' all others!---ho!!---I love PUMPKIN & PECAN pies!!---I don't notice the difference in canned pumpkin' or fresh!!---ho!!------I DIE FOR KEY-LIME PIE!!!!

carolinabeachmom said...

NORMA Key Lime pie is another of my favorites too. When a friend of mine moved to Florida years ago, she sent me up all the ingredients to make a key lime pie. It was new to her and me then. Delicious

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Sea eagles at Finney!

carolinabeachmom said...

bold

MITS said...

love those sea eagles:)

carolinabeachmom said...

Sorry folks, I was just trying to remember how to gold etc again.

normabyrd said...

OH DEB!!!---I hope you see a SNOW OWL!!!----Too---too beautiful!!---NATURE program showed a SNOWY OWL last night----Fabulous!!

normabyrd said...

Little LUNEY--'CC' BOY CUB' is back----& he looks like he is plumb tuckered out!!---ho!---'LITTLE IMP'!!!--bet he had an exam!!!!

carolinabeachmom said...

NORMA He has been busy trying to move about his area. He started out on the middle top left and got to where he is now; all pooped out. He did alot of circling around and around to get where he is now. He is such a cute little fuzz ball.

carolinabeachmom said...

Hey all, just went on the Moosewatch cam and say where Scar face returned to the yard on July 11, 2008 and it is posted that Primo returned on Sept. l, 2008 and a pic of both and a baby is on the site.

carolinabeachmom said...

Scar Face showed no sign of his ugly infection that he had on his back end is says. Wonderful news.

normabyrd said...

Whoa DANA!!---Only 2 (TWO) DONKEYS this morning!

normabyrd said...

LOOK!--LOOK!!---Sister "MEI' is eating bamboo in ATLANTA!!---SHE IS BEAUTIFUL!!---look how she is grown!!!---bless her heart---I have missed her!!!

normabyrd said...

MONSTER TURKEYS in PA!!---One will feed 5 families!!----ho!

Mema Jo said...

Good Late Monday Morning - I love looking at Snowy Owls - I don't like
looking at Snowy Streets! TOOOOOOO
SOOOOOOOOOOON. I agree with Megan to say No to Snow.

Full house! Love it - have not read earlier thread - emails were few!
Sea Eagles were both in the nest a short time ago - BUT it certainly got dark very quickly.

Got my eagle fix on BWO - she is still there.
Norma - hubby is in Romney visiting his dad - Hope the weather holds for him.

Mema Jo said...

Candy - I keep checking the Moose cam
for an update from Pook - but nothing recent. They should be
returning soon.

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' JO!!!----We aren't expecting snow in Romney today!!---
Tuesday MAY have either rain or snow showers in afternoon!!!---46° now!!----JO! They showed LIL SISTER---MEI at the ATLANTA site eating bamboo!!----She has really grown!!

MITS said...

Monday, October 27
What is Lun Lun feeding that cub? Since last Sunday, the cub has put on 14.5 ounces! The cub now weighs 2549 grams (~5.6 pounds). He seems to be starting his own category in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most weight gain in a single 24-hour period. In Saturday’s update, Heather reported his greatest 24-hour weight gain as 94 grams; however, we now have to reassign that designation to yesterday’s gain of 115 grams (almost as much as his presumed birth weight). And, I feel fairly safe in predicting that we will have to make further corrections to that label before this business of growing up is over.

carolinabeachmom said...

Good Monday morning JO. I can't wait to see the moose again.

HELEN Thanks for the update on the cuddly little fur ball at Atlanta Zoo. He is growing by leaps and bounds!

paula eagleholic said...

EEwwiiees at BWO now

paula eagleholic said...

I just received a call from Lolly & Jack

They spent 4 days in Washington, DC, and 4 days in Williamsburg, VA, and are now headed home. She said they expect to be home on Wednesday. She said they have had a wonderful time!

I wished her safe travels home!

MITS said...

thanks for the update, Paula

Mema Jo said...

Just talked with bil in FL & I won't tell you the temp down there. They just came off golf course & they have sighted the Sandhill Cranes - a couple dancing (mating) Have to contact Jewell and see if anymore have been around at her back door.

MITS said...

EAGLE BACK AT BWO

Mema Jo said...

Thanks for the update on our TX couple, Paula. So now they all will be home Deb Lolly Anne
Anxious to hear about the wedding from Anne.

Norma - I did open Atlanta cam and couldn't believe that it was Buta Buta

Mema Jo said...

Going down to the lab to see Dracula

BBL

carolinabeachmom said...

Good news about Lolly and hubby. They used their trip wisely and saw a few things over here. Hopeing they get back safely. If I had known that they were as close as Williamsburg, Va., I would have told them to keep coning on 64 and then headed south on 168 for the Outer Banks. We are only about 2 and a quarter hours away. I would have loved to have met her. Hope they come back for another gathering.

carolinabeachmom said...

Well, time for lunch and hubby wants to go to Home Depot to get some pansies for the yard. So guess I'll check out for now. Later Gators.

normabyrd said...

Thanks PAULA!!!---They are a COOL couple!!---I certainly enjoyed meeting everyone---ANNE & her brother, BILL & SIL---& DEB!!--It was SUCH FUN!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Hey, Norma, did you read my post from yesterday? The eagle that was found on the railroad tracks is at the same wildlife center w/ Buddy.

Hedgie said...

Good afternoon all my fowl friends!
Fun reading this am's comments. Oh, no, SNOW...argh!!! Don't want any!
Oldest daughter and youngest gd are on field trip to DC today..just sent me a pic of the Capital from the Washington Monument. Beautiful as ever...Land of the Free, Home of the Brave...

Hedgie said...

Guess Jim did get back to sleep!!! Most of know what he meant!!

Hedgie said...

Have to remember that time change affects Finney viewing! When I checked it this am, no one home...when I went back, it was dark!! And it was only 11 here!

Hedgie said...

Lunchtime, and then gotta at least blow leaves off the deck...no point in trying anything more w/ wind blowing!

NatureNut said...

Happy Monday Everyone. Been busy & checking email & TRYING to send to E_M. Never accepts my email---have to mail it to myself at yahoo & then fwd to E_M. I can't even sign on blog w/out pretending I'm opening a new account! AARRGGHH

Been writing all the Help links--no answers yet.
No cams here--gonna check Luney. From what I've read, appears the British bloke maybe left Atlanta Cam!!!LOL BBL

normabyrd said...

PAULA---Thanks for reminding me!!!!!---RODNEY (train person) saw me Fri. & he said the EAGLE that they found----will not be able to fly--he had had an earlier accident---prior to this last accident---when the train folks found him!!---Will be used for teaching!---so very sad!---NEED TO READ YOUR EARLIER POST!!!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' HEDGIE & NATURENUT!---I have been on & off the phone---

NATURENUT--I still have to sign off & on too!

normabyrd said...

PAULA!!---The TRAIN FOLKS were really wanting him to RECOVER!!! They had hoped they might be able to re-release him from the train---(in place where he was found)---WONDERFUL PUBLICITY for the EAGLES & the TRAIN!! ---- were very proud they found the eagle!!!---How can I find that site?

normabyrd said...

PAULA!!---You are a 'SHARPIE'!!
What did your MOTHER feed you that made you so intelligent!!---Thank you!----Isn't he a BEAUTIFUL EAGLE!!!

Hedgie said...

Loretta, I can't send anything w/ pics or attachments from AOL to E_M, either. Have to send it to my yahoo acct first! Go figure....
How neat that you KNOW the train guy, Norma! Too bad that Mr. Eagle won't be releasable, but he's alive, and on the mend, so that's good news. At least he won't ever have to worry about predators for the rest of his life. He's a lovely guy.

Hedgie said...

Temp up to 50 finally, but so gray and gloomy...went ahead and built a fire in the stove...starting to feel toasty!

movin said...

There's a new update at Lun Lun's place, but I think they've got their math buggered up.

They had him gaining a big bunch on Saturday, but only 2 grams on Sunday. Now they are saying he set a record for weight gain in the last 24 hrs. again...probably somebody recorded the wrong numbers in the last few days.

I was emailing ... some of you too ... on my AOL account, but the software has some weird jitters and keeps freezing up. So I probably won't be on there much more today.

Eagle at BWO

Now it's an eewwiiee at BWO

movin said...

New update from Loch Garten:

"Enjoying the weather.

Posted on Monday, 27 Oct 2008 at 2.55 pm

The latest data shows Nethy to still be in the area of Lac de Guiers, cruising along the west shore of the lake, presumably enjoying the warm weather of the region. Which is more than can be said for Loch Garten today. The mountains are white-over, with intermittant falls of sleet or snow at forest level. All very lovely though despite the cold and damp.

A quiet time here otherwise, though fourteen whooper swans passed overhead this morning, fresh from Iceland, bound for Insh Marshes Reserve, down the road from us here. An influx of greylag geese at the weekend too, also from Iceland, over 1,000 birds. Hopefully they are going to take up Loch Garten as their winter roost as usual - we hope so, as we have a Goose Roost-watch event scheduled for the next two Sundays, 2nd & 9th November, between 4-5pm. If you are anywhere remotely close, why not come along? The birds arrive towards dusk, their honking calls marking their unseen arrival, before they suddenly appear over the tree tops and literally drop out of the sky as they whiffle down, twisting and turning to lose height rapidly - the term whiffling describes the rush of air tearing through their flight feathers as they make their rapid descent.

Apart from that, a few raven fly-bys overhead and yet more and more redwings and fieldfares pouring in, but no waxwings as yet, but eagerly awaited.

That's all for now folks.

Richard"

Jim

movin said...

Well, I probably better shut down for a while.

Talk to you fine people later.



C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

Floralgirl said...

Eagle back at BWO.

Hedgie said...

Jim, they said something about having weighed Luney right after nursing, which accounted for a larger gain than usual--think it was either Fri. or Sat.! Is that what you referring to?

NatureNut said...

Thx Buds, good to know I'm not the only one w/access trouble.
Guess "it is what it is"!!!

Lovely sight at Atlanta--CC was snuggled under LL's chin!
We are now having light rain & it's in mid-40s on my deck.BOO
BTW--Megan's pumpkin is the pits!!!LOL Love it

Floralgirl said...

2 eagles at BWO now.

MITS said...

lol.....I love your sick pumpkin, Megan

Floralgirl said...

Yeah, too much Halloween candy....

MITS said...

oh, my mind was going in a different direction, thought he had partied too hardy:)

Red said...

My Halloween candy keeps disappearing. Guess I shouldn't buy it so early.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Red, that candy thing keeps happening here too. I think it is a bandit stealing it in the middle of the night.

Hedgie said...

Can't imagine WHO would be making it disappear, Red!!
Megan, how's the maze doing? Was Sat. a washout for you?

Floralgirl said...

HA, ha...Could be too much alcohol or candy ... funny, my candy has all disapeared too. Not my fault it is so irresistible.

NatureNut said...

Paula, you are so talented---did you carve that eagle pumpkin?? ;>)

Floralgirl said...

I only work Mon thru Fri. running school field trips, thank goodness. I rarely go thru the maze anymore, cause I am 'field trip coordinator'-what a title..

Hedgie said...

Good title!! Guess it does get a bit old if you do it too often...and know your way out!!! At least you get a couple of days "off" if you can call it that...a farmers' week never ends!

Hedgie said...

Eagle at Blackwater!

Hedgie said...

And gone....head feathers ruffled in the wind made him look so unkempt!!

Floralgirl said...

Honestly, I prefer doing an activity to being in charge, but oh well, it is what it is..
It's fun to get the group "lost" in the maze- each activity only lasts about 14 minutes, then it is on to the next, it's my job to keep everyone moving, so we stay on schedule.

MITS said...

so should we buy you and eagle cane to keep the crowd moving:)

paula eagleholic said...

RFOLMAO = Love your avatar, Megan!

paula eagleholic said...

Nature said = Paula, you are so talented---did you carve that eagle pumpkin?? ;>)


No Nature, I couldn't carve the eagle pumpkin...but I could do one like Megan's!

Costume Lady said...

Hi, Everyone...I stopped in to see if we have a cam back, but nothing yet. Has anyone told Steve...do you think he needs to be told or maybe prodded with an Eagle Cane? I always think to myself that there is nothing more important than getting our cam up and running, after all, isn't that what this Blog is all about? The percentage of times it is on is far less than the times it is off!

Floralgirl said...

Ah, yes, sometimes an eagle cane would come in handy!!

Floralgirl said...

I thought of it cause I saw a pumpkin like that this morning on someone's front porch, with a couple of empty beer cans laying in front of it.

MITS said...

I e-mailed him, Wanda...as I am sure alot of people did:(

Deb said...

I am back, we didn't find the snowy owl. It would have been nice to see one, but we had a good day anyway. You can tell it is getting colder, as we didn't see that many birds today. We did see a northern shrike, a small bird that spears its food. It will sometimes leave its dinner impaled on a barbed wire fence for later eating.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good evening all my friends of fine feathers and fur! How goes it this evening?? I am off of work and it is still daylight outside. Glorious day!

NatureNut said...

Just put a couple Fall pics on blog.

True to form today, pics showed up backwards, DUH. Had to reattach backwards to get them in order I wanted!
Now attempting to do dinner--hope that works!! LOL

magpie said...

Quick Hi and Bye to everyone...enjoyed all the comments, and love the new avatars, Megan and Paula...

I just an Eagle Squeak at Maine, and can hear that fog horn still, the nest looks ripe for an Eagle visit !

Got to leave for work soon, just had time to read up on a few things...

Have a nice Evening everyone, and Stay Out of the Candy Jars! What will you tell the kids when they show up for their treats ??


xoxox TTFN

Floralgirl said...

AAAwwwww.. I love Pooh bear...'I am a bear of very little brain, and long words bother me.'

magpie said...

By the way, I did hear from Dana Sunday afternoon, she is "okay" and I hope she shows up here soon to tell us that herself !

Peace, Love, and Prayers,
xo

Deb said...

When I worked for Target, we would sell lots of Halloween Candy right away when we put it out. Then the week of Halloween, most people came in to rebuy their candy, since they had eaten it all.

MITS said...

oh, bother:)

Red said...

Actually we have not had trick or treaters in over 5 years. But we still buy a big bag of candy and put a few pieces away just in case we have a few trick or treaters then eat the rest. lol

Floralgirl said...

I'm so rumbly in my tumbly...time for something sweet...

paula eagleholic said...

Oh My, I haven't bought any candy yet...probably a good thing!

Ceil said...

I have ate the Halloween candy and had to buy more. We have lots of trick or treaters. There is a school lot a block away and a party is hosted and then they come around the neighborhood. We sit outside and hand out the candy. I love it.

Ceil said...

eaten not ate the candy

MITS said...

sounds like you are on candy overload, Ceil.....we have a haunted house around the corner and everyone goes there

Ceil said...

We use to be the Haunted house. We had a lot of older people in our neighbor hood and now we are the older ones. One Halloween my husband put on a mask and went to a neighbors house and scared her really bad. She was such a nice lady.

MITS said...

yeah my dentist terroized me by going to our backyard one year......smacked him silly:)

Mema Jo said...

Hey Ceil - what do you mean she
WAS

MITS said...

oh dear, maybe he really did scare her:)

MITS said...

hubby is home early...off to finish preparing dinner.....beef stew in the crockpot:)

Mema Jo said...

Oh Sharon I just saw your
Pooh Pumpkin!!!
Megan & Paula - love your pumpkins..

Everyone loves the Sycamore Nest Tree
Was going to put orange lights on it
but disrupt the nest......

Ceil said...

Jo, we are the older ones now.

Mema Jo said...

Loretta - loved the fall colors in your new pics.

Mema Jo said...

Weather man just told me that I should expect SNOW late Wednesday
evening.... It's not even Halloween
yet.

Mema Jo said...

Ceil I meant what did you mean when you said She was a nice lady?

Did Jim do her in or did she stop being a nice lady?

Ceil said...

Well Jo you have nice people and not nice people. She was a gem.
He almost did.

Ceil said...

Loretta,Love the picture of the maple especially.There is a maple tree across the street from my office. Love to watch it this time of year.

Mema Jo said...

Our Sunday newspaper here in Frederick had a nice spread on DC
Boo in the Zoo.


We are getting some rain here in
the valley..........

MITS said...

looks like ghost on panda cam # 2

MITS said...

here come the raccoons:)

Ceil said...

Jo It has been raining here since early afternoon. It was not suppose to rain. I hang a few clothes out on the line. Jimmy came in and said it is raining. It was only a few drops. My next door neighbor called. It is raining. I said not hard it will stop. Another neighbor called. It is raining. Okay will bring them in.

MITS said...

lol....good neighbors:)

paula eagleholic said...

I bought my candy! Some good chocolate candy too...M&M's and Hershey bars...I've only eaten 2 of the M&M's....so far!

Ceil, everyone in my neighborhood sits on the front porch also.

Hedgie said...

Ceil, did you go out and get them in the dark???

Floralgirl said...

Did someone say snow again???

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good evening everyone!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

My lovely Baltimore neighbors would probably spray mud on clothes I have hanging out! :)

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Mits, you should be good to go!

Floralgirl said...

Alright, what are you two up to??

carolinabeachmom said...

Good evening to all. It is 46 degrees here and the wind is a howling. If I didn't know any better, I would think that we were going to get snow. :) BUT on second thought, you all can keep it right up there. My sister in NYstate is to get some tomorrow too.

Floralgirl said...

A nor'easter developing tonight will blast the Northeast Tuesday with strong winds, heavy rain and wet snow as a huge dip in the jet stream pushes cold air as far south as central Florida. hooray:((

MEGAN I didn't know we had a noreaster forming off the coast. I don't like the sounds of a big dip bringing cold air down, but if it must come, it should go all the way down to the tip of Florida.

MITS said...

ahhh, another nor'easter:)

Floralgirl said...

Aha! I knew you were getting a new pic... looking all Halloweenie on here.

MITS said...

Megan, was that Piglet???

Floralgirl said...

Yes, doesn't show up very well, though.

Floralgirl said...

Gonna be tough to work outside the next two days, feel bad for the kiddies, they were so cold today.

carolinabeachmom said...

I sure hope the storm is above us. Winds out of the NE in a Noreaster' have road overwash on the oceanside. If the winds go to the northwest, then the soundside roads and property start to flood. If they call school, then we would have to make up the lost day on this Saturday.:( Buses can't get rhough the water, let alone cars. :(

carolinabeachmom said...

BTW where are you all going to get your cute Halloween pics? I went to photobucket but could only find one pumpkin. Didn't really try tho.

MITS said...

love the skull, MEGAN....THANKS for the pumpkin, SHARON:)

MITS said...

Candy, I just google halloween avatars

Ceil said...

Lynn, Luckly it was earlier today. I do have good neighbors. We look out for each other.

Floralgirl said...

Google, Candy- now I have Jack Skellington, one of my favorites..
Remember this?? Charlie Brown

Hedgie said...

Not sure how to find/add new avatars...any suggestions? I did just put on my capture from BW today of the wind-blown eagle! But I'd like some Holiday ones to choose from!

carolinabeachmom said...

Thanks ladies for the info. Yes MEGAN I remember the rock. My sister said that Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin is coming on the tv tomorrow night. I just have to see it. It isn't Halloween without it.

Deb said...

I had to get into the spirit along with everyone else. SD party for No Child Left Inside.

Good night everyone. Pleasant dreams.

MITS said...

Good night, Ceil:)

Hedgie, you can search for clip art lots of places. If you're on AOL, I used to go on AOL Images. You can Search by subject.Also flickr is good---you don't have to join, just type in subject.
