close up of Luney all alone
I think Maryland fell asleep on the road...going to be nice weather for the game, but we are playing a 4 and 0 team, so not looking for a win, but really do like watching our 22 yr old QB
Ceil, did you go to Ft. McHenry last night for the fireworks and Phelps celebration?
Heck no. Went to Church at 5:30 and when I came out everyone was walking to the Fort and I was going the other way. Jimmy had a hard time finding a parking spot but in the city that is not unusual. They had express buses running from the stadium to the Fort. So it was very well organized. They expected 20 to 30 thousand people but are saying it was only 10 thousand. I think the scared the others away.
Michael Phelps will be at the Raven game.
Baby panda all by himself.

Well there are only 30 comments for me to read & catch up with all of you. I best start reading..
Norma - I just saw Buta Buta eating in her play room... I think it is great to let her have some limelight every once in a while!He does get the hiccups - I saw himjerking the other day... lol
HI JO!---He is so ADORABLE!!---Remember when TAI was that age!!--He was so CUTE playing in the snow!!---
I almost thought he was going to roll over the other day the way hewas laying in the straw all alone.It is going to be fun watching this little guy learn all the tricks!
UPDATE at ATLANTA!----Both of his eyes are open a little today!!---His weight was wrong yesterday--they weighed him with his blanket!!---
MAGPIE!---That PA SITE has 3 deer---1 leaves ---other 2 gone too!!---I think that's a groundhog there!What did you think it was??
Norma - you be sure to take your cane with you (And use it) as you're waiting for the train to load. Stand at the caboose with Deb, Paula, Lolly and Jack, Anne and Bill & SandyThey will allow you to enter first with your friends. Iris and I didthis last year. Have you thought of a place to have lunch with everyone before they take off from Romney?
That is funny, Norma. Whoa! I even take my socks off when I weigh myselfNorma - in the woods at the salt lick A Fawn was nursing........
I like the day time pics from thewoods at the salt lick.....Go under the pic and change the REFRESH RATE to a 2

Hello Helen! I know our Ravens lost by 3 BUT did they honor Michael?The deer have been at the salt lick in the PA woods.
I need to shut my pc down and start up again in hopes that it picks up some speed! BBL
Those COWBOYS need to get on the BALL!---It's now 17-13!
Michael came out for the coin toss wearing a Raven #8 ( GOLD MEDALS) shirt...he got a standing ovation....don't think they could do anything more then that and get permission from the NFL
Hi, everyone. I am home from a successful trip to Omaha, shoes and a kayak!! I even got both of them for a really good price! It is hard for me to find shoes that fit and don't cost an arm and a leg, so was very happy to find a pair that fit at a reasonable price.
Deb, you really bought the kayak??? Good for you!! How did you get it home?
DID A PADDLE COME WITH IT ? And a life jacket? Whoo Hoo You go Deb
DEB you ARE the woman!!!!!!
too bad you can't bring it with you and paddle on the Potomac
I brought it home in the back of my pick up, paddle and life jacket. I am all set! Now I just need the weather to clear up so I can take it out. It would be fun to try the Potomac, we could all go!
that would be fun, and a good way to spot eagles....they were all over by the river the other day
Well - I think I would be running(or riding a bike or in a golf cart)down the tow path keeping an eye on you! lol Do I ever wish I couldkayak Sunny goes on the Potomac a lot and Anne Marie wants to Kayak - so does Paula I think........
Way to go Deb....I've never been in a kayak but had a canoe for a long time. I loved going everywhere with it. The potomac is a very great place to canoe. Although I don't canoe anymore. So probably yes kayaking there would be great.
Forgot to tell you all that 2 weeks ago my son was on the tow path & did sight one of OUR eagles (I know it was) at the river...... He made a low dive but then circled and flew onward. He said it sure was a beautiful sight!
I sure hope they put on a show when we are there. Dana, kayaking is easier than canoeing. Easier to paddle and to steer, and you can do it alone!
Deb it was always just me and my dog in the canoe. I have heard yes that kayaking is easier. Last year at Open House they had kayaks their for people to see and askquestions about. We talked to theman there. That is where I learn't using a kayak is easier.They will probably be there this year too.
DEB, you have mail:)
Too bad they don't let you take them out! I didn't get anything fancy at all, just a basic, easy to handle one that will be good for the river.
Mits, you have mail.
I am off bowling My scores would be good golf scoresBut I did just get 3 strikes in a row BBLMenu for 18th has been sent to those attending.........
I'm sure that I would enjoy kayaking or canoeing, but since I can't swim there is that inate fear. I'm fine w/ BIG vessels, but would feel very insecure in something that could topple over easily.Hey, Jo, I'm addicted to the bolwing! But about every third game it freezes up halfway through...boo.
Hedgie I just thought I broke itRestarted it and I still couldn't get a decent score. It's entertainingUsed to be a hangman for HalloweenI'll try to find it unless someone else does before me........It has really chilled down tonight!
same here, Lynn, but it is fun:)
yeah, hangman is still around, Cindi always sends it out
Not too many on here right nowBUT Any volunteers for Paula'srequest?
Hi Ladies...Jo, I must have missed Paula's request. What would that be?And, what's with the huge change in prices on our dinners?
Link to Buddy's Candles Link to light more candles for MASON
Do you mean for tending the table, Jo? I volunteered!Wanda, prices have gone up everywhere on everything!!!
Time to get a snack and settle down to Army Wives. BBL!
Check out link to Alcoa-Australia Looks like 1/2 egg shell when youenlarge the nest box......
I just emailed them - maybe I'll get an answer. The diary is only updatedthrough September......It's too darkin the nest box to see.
#1) I'll email you Paula's request for help.#2) I'll answer you in an email since not everyone on our blog would be attending or interested.Did you spend the day with Gee Gee or was your shop open?
I do know that prices have gone up on everything,Lynn, but Crab Cakes were $24.95 and are now 29.95. That is a $5.00 increase...JMHO, but I think that is too much. Now if that is the price being charged to those eating in the Tavern, and not just us, then that is a little different. I thought maybe we were being GOUGED because we are in the Private Dining Room.
DEB, are you bringing your camera?
JO, I was sick this Morning (throwing up) so, I stayed home, for fear I had a bug that I might pass on to GeeGee. About mid-afternoon, I felt better and thought I'd take my chances with her. So glad I did. She was near tears when she saw me. (She thought I wasn't coming) We had a wonderful visit. Denise took her to get Crab Legs Friday evening.
Not at all Wanda. I have the copy of the actual menu for theRumsey. The room was paid for separatly. They are the actual prices for everyone no matter where you're seated. You have mail.
Jo that is definately an egg in Australia. Does look like a half of an egg like you said. Unless somehow the shade is making it look that way. Then I would wonder being a whole egg why is she not on it. So I'll go with your idea that it is half an egg.
No, Wanda, think that is a cross the board increase....not just because we are in the private room....speaking of which, Jo, are we just going to pay you the night of the dinner.....meant to pay you the other day.
Wanda - seeing your Mom like that breaks your heart.I know the feeling.Just like we were dependent on our mothers when we were young - they become dependent on us when we're older. It is such a logical loving circle - our life!
WANDA so sorry you are not feeling well:(
I'll be back.I need to shut these windows.I am getting cold!
COLD CASE IS GOOD TONIGHT:)
OK, knowing that the price increase is across the board...I feel better. Sorry that I got bent out of shape.
NO PROBLEMS, WANDA:)
I told Paula, that Gene and I could work the tables in the afternoon. We work well together.
DEB...don't forget your binoculars. (I probably didn't have to tell you that, but just in case!) And your sunglasses. And your PJ's and.........
I volunteered, too!
Yes, Jo, I am brining my camera.
Don't forget your toothbrush:)
Well if everything went off fine which I hope it did. Candy's son has been married for 1 day.So Candy might be getting back on the blog.
Great! Paula will be pleased!I forgot Cold Case!!! :(
Deb, don't forget your plane tickets either:) Make a list check it twice
DEB: Do you think you're going to have enough "Mothers" when you gethere? ((hugs))
I wonder how long until Candy does touch base with us. Soon, I hope!I sure hope she doesn't try to catch up with 300 emails that she missed.Oh Nooooooooooo...she wouldn't do that!
lol.....yep, we can't wait, Deb:)
Cold Case was good, Jo, but as usual came on late because of the CBS football game.
Nethy's latest Hope you all had a good Sunday.Nethy's making excellent progress, and owing to the satellite's course the reports are late ... she could be close to finished with it by now. Look at the report by clicking on the bluey link.C(°ٿ°)DJim
Thanks Jim I just can't imagine the strength of their wings because it just can't be riding the thermals all the way!
Rocky Raccoon and friends are in the PA Woods. Now I will always think of that crazy Beatles' song...
saw one of Rocky's relatives on the side of 95N today.....:(
Thanks for all the reminders, I have a travel bag packed at all times so when I do go somewhere I can grab it and go, toothbrush, paste, shampoo, etc. all the necessities. I replenish it when I get back from a trip, so it is ready to go the next time. I have done it for years, makes packing so much easier.
Margy said one was a raccoon their door aat the office last night.
I wish they would zoom in on LL

Sunday, October 5First, I need to post a correction. On Friday afternoon, the cub weighed 1244 grams, not 1299 grams. The 55 grams discrepancy comes from the blanket the cub was wrapped in while he was weighed. We apologize for the misinformation.Now on to today's update! Yesterday morning I noticed that the cub's left eye was just starting to open! I could see a tiny slit of a shiny black eye! The right eye was still closed, but I knew that very soon both eyes would be open. It's so exciting to see each and every milestone first-hand, but it is especially thrilling discover it! This morning, both eyes are open a little bit more. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, giant panda cubs begin to open their eyes between 35 and 50 days after birth. So, we were expecting to see the cub's eyes open any day (today the cub is 36 days old). This significant progression in the cub's development is just another sign that he is thriving under Lun Lun's care. Yesterday afternoon the cub weighed 1298 grams; this is the 4th day in a row that he has gained around 50 grams in 24 hours.Heather Baker RobertsKeeper I

Yeah, Mema Jo,It is incredible how far they fly at times, but I think it's a lot like Hawk Mountain (think that's the name) where you can see they are riding definite wind currents along the flyways. They certainly have flyways in Europe, Asia, and Africa as well.C(°ٿ°)DJim
Well the day has even gotten better. Hubby's Steeler just won their game....Hooray!!!!
