Thanks Steve. It was a nasty day to travel. Thank heaven it was not like this last week.

MITS said...

THANKS CEIL, AND STEVE:)

MITS said...

I've missed your little seal, Ceil, but know you have been busy:)

MITS said...

heck we would have sat in the Eagle Express...could have had a chance then to have an Eagle Talon:)

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Hello again everyone! Thanks Ceil and Steve!

MITS said...

Hello Miss Sharon:)

Ceil said...

Hi Sharon. Is it raining in Bluefield?

MITS said...

raccoons are starting to arrive for the party

Mema Jo said...

Hello Ceil, Helen and Sharon! So nice to join your party! Hope you all are ready for sunshine tomorrow.

Mema Jo said...

Everyone must have headed to an 8:00 show on tv..........

BBL

Ceil said...

Hi Jo.

MITS said...

nothing is really on TV, still in a rain delay for WS, last time I looked....

Ceil said...

They said the game may start at about 9:15. It was still pouring there.

MITS said...

I saw when people were coming in how hard it was raining.

MITS said...

radar showing rain is starting to move out of their area

magpie said...

It's just a little late for the reminder" 9 o'clock Peace Prayer...while you are waiting for the game maybe?

xoxoxo

MITS said...

did they recognize you at church, Margy?

MITS said...

fat luney is laying by himself

magpie said...

CEIL: Regarding your Christmas reminder earlier in the day: I bought an El Cheopo Christmas CD: "A Celtic Christmas" - so I am doing my part to get in the spirit! Test-driving it now.... xox

MITS said...

I love Christmas music:)....

magpie said...

Actually, Yes, MITS .
It was soooooooooo nice to be back !
Lovely service, too, and I loved the readings the Psalm for today...

magpie said...

Me Too, MITS - I play Handel's Messiah well into February ! But I don't start playing that one until very close to Christmas itself.

xox So NICE to "See" Everyone on here...

MITS said...

yes, they reminded us of All Saints Day for next Sat, but our church does not do the night before holy day of obligation mass anymore, says there are not enough people...I don't believe that

MITS said...

watching the sunset at the Grand Canyon....pretty

magpie said...

...And on my way back, a glorious view of my favorite Planet: (with Jupiter further East but equally glorious! ) God is Good !

VENUS

(Frankie looks kind of stretched out and Skinny on here...)

Ceil said...

Did the walk for the heart association today. They gave us a very nice CD. I have a few Celtic CD's Margy but none are Christmas. Will have to get one. Just showing you Philly. It is still pouring.

MITS said...

ROFLMBO...............MARGY...HE IS A STICK MAN...got to stop, tears running down my face, laughing so hard

magpie said...

Oh, I'm glad you enjoyed it MITS - that was one Looong suit coat ! And I loved the little blonde with the TipToni curly hairdo! that YOU-Tube has had over 89,000 views, guess a lot of people have had a good laugh over the years.

CEIL: This CD sounds pretty good. Yay for you for walking for the AHA today! THAT is glorious...better than the planets ! Did you have to use an umbrella, or did you have one of those funny hats with an umbrella built in ?

Ceil said...

Well I think I will call it a night.
Pleasant dreams.

Ceil said...

We were fortunate. No rain early this morning. It had stopped. Have a good night.

MITS said...

Good night sister dear:)

magpie said...

Okay I got Fox 5 on, going to see what the World Series is up to...
cleared off beautifully here in the Eastern Panhandle between 5 and 6...

magpie said...

Good Night Ceil....

Sunday would have been my sister's 61st birthday....so I am going to say 'Good Night Sister Dear' to her during my bedtime prayers tonight....


xoxox

MITS said...

Margy will keep you in my prayers tonight and tomorrow

magpie said...

How about that Mason with the "Thumbs Up? yesterday? Now That is Great News !

MITS said...

yes, what a thrill that must have been for his loved ones

Ceil said...

Margy I am getting like you. I am back just to say. Thinking of you in my prayers tonight. She was young. Hope to have my sisters for a long time. For real good night.

magpie said...

Thanks so much, Helen and Ceil, that means the world to me...

All of us on this here blog have had a lot of loss in our lives over the years....Comfort does come through prayer - comfort and strength....

Good Night for Real, Ceil ! xo

Costume Lady said...

HELLO...ANYBODY HOME?
Busy, busy day. Costumes ALL DONE! If UPS or FEDX brings anymore, I will have to HURT the driver!!
What is the good news about Mason? Is he awake?

magpie said...

Oh, That was nice ! The Star-Spangled Banner...and that flag! And the soldiers holding it across the field! I don't care what else happens in the game, I saw everything I wanted to see for the night !

magpie said...

Wanda: Congrats! That's a lot of work for you!

Mason is back at Bryn Mawr...either just before he left Baltimore, or after he got to Bryn Mawr, he gave a thumbs up to the Nurse ! How magical is that ! I'll try to find the text and post it word for word unless someone beats me to it...

xo

magpie said...

Costume Lady:
From the CaringBridge site this morning:

" Just a quick update from last nite. Ponytail Pat, Ashley her mother and brother, MB and Harper, Diane and Mia and Nancy from California came to stay last night. We will have nice full busy weekend.

Mason did a thumbs up for Brian the nurse yesterday and I confirmed it for myself, I got him to do it too!

Love from Paoli!!!!!! "

Costume Lady said...

WAY TO GO MASON!! We knew you could do it.

Costume Lady said...

Thanks, Margy. I am so happy for that family. At this point, any sign of recovery is welcomed.

Costume Lady said...

Helen, Dustin is with us this weekend and just got through eating "Bowtie Pasteries" and malted milk for his snack. He wanted to know if I knew how to make them....said they were soooo good!(I can't remember their name)

magpie said...

Yes, indeed, Wanda, this journey for them has been going on for over three months now...

magpie said...

Steve Carlton, a SouthPaw, threw out the first pitch! I remember him... he was Good !

Thing I like about Baseball, it goes more or less slow enough for me to understand it....
And I have always been fascinated by the Names ! Don't like watching the spitting though, tobacky juice and sunflower seeds ! Goes with the territory I guess...

magpie said...

Oh, a Grandson House Guest! That is so nice, Wanda! Malted Milk! I remember Dairy Queen had Malted Milk milkshakes, maybe they still do.

Didn't the old teeny-boppers used to go to the "Malt Shop" for a "Malted?" At least on television they did...

magpie said...

Wanda: Have you opened up this site?

Scroll down until you see the blinking Hallowe-en Skull! It's a Scream ! Allen's Hummingbird Nest Be sure to watch it during the daytime too !
xo

magpie said...

I figure you might lose the Mouse to the Grandson so I better say Good Night to you now, Wanda !

Costume Lady said...

Yes they did Margy, I had many malteds. When I became a bonified teenager, I drank rootbeer.

MITS said...

ok don't know what happened...could not get onto blog, but looks ok now

magpie said...

Did you go to the HAG-MART WANDA ?? Had some Dreamy "Car Hops" - guys!

Costume Lady said...

I ran him off of here at 9 o'clock. Told him it was my turn. I won't be on here long though, Mr. Sandman is calling me very loudly.

MITS said...

WANDA, you have mail....sent you the name, when I could not get on the blog

MITS said...

that hummer site cracks me up

magpie said...

Lots of Blobs at BWO - maybe mud bogs like the Osprey used to bring in...would like to say they are Turtle Shells but I think that would be my imagination...

magpie said...

MITS: I hope I was not a Blog Hog - that might have prevented you from getting on...I'm sorry if that is so...

I'm going to quiet down now... I have a five-hour shot at the office starting at 6 am Sunday.

So, "Nighty Night" all...
Peace, Prayers, and Love.
xo

Costume Lady said...

HAG MART...#1 hangout if we had a quarter to buy a root beer and hotdog.

Costume Lady said...

I'm right behind you, Margy.

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE
SLEEP TIGHT
PRAYERS FOR ALL

MITS said...

was not you Margy, it was an IE thingy

Hedgie said...

Hi and bye! Watching that show online violated Hughesnet Fair Access Policy, so now I am penalized for 24 hrs--super slow speed!! The policy allows unlimited downloading only between 3am-6am...and I guess a TV show is just too much! Argh!! So signing off for tonight. May not be back on until tomorrow evening!!
Margy, I love Celtic! Don't think it could be my Scotch/Irish heritage, do you?? Celtic Woman is one of my favs.
Night, night. Peace and love for all.

Hedgie said...

OMG, Wanda and Margy...I ws just thinking about Hagmart yesterday!!!

movin said...
