Deb - Make sure you leave that snow at home when you head east to visit with us!
Reading early am comments on old thread...makes me wonder...what the heck is the life span of a stupid spider??????
No, I am not getting snow. I am in eastern SD, but sure hate to see it anywhere. Especially this early in the season!
We are supposed to hit 80, by this coming Monday.
I'll take 80, I think we are supposed to be in 60's and low 70's all week.

I am off Kayaking again today. I am going with a man from the osprey project. He is 76 years young and still kayaks. He hand builds beautiful kayaks. I know that he misses all the visiting, so I am going with him today instead of with the girls on the Missouri. Don and I will just do Lake Yankton, so I won't have many pictures today.
HAVE FUN, DEB:)
Happy birthday, Norma! I bet that was quite the song from the second grade this morning!

I put a picture of Don in one of his kayaks on my page, in case you would like to see one.
Ha Ha Dana and actually I did make not just find the Spunky video. And its funny because this morning I was thinking of a couple of very Spunky Momsters and Norma immediately came to mind. I almost wrote that in here then LOL. Norma knows that many of us know how much she loves Spunk.
Norma there is a copy of that video for you to keep in your email.
I need the link to the video! Glo, you are bringing back wonderful memories again. I don't know if we will ever have anything to equal our first year and that is not saying this year's younguns were not absolutely wonderful!
Oh yes Spunky sure did hold on in that rain storm....wow he is a tough eaglet now he is a tough immature eagle ( : ( :Glad Glo, Paula and others put videos in You Tube. Thanks all!Going to check out Deb's picture. Been waiting to see them.
Sharon Dana posted the link at 11:51
I think whatever year is your first year to watch NCTC parents care for and fledge their young will last in your heart and mindseye forever. I know the memories of 2006 become more cherished with the passing of time.
I found it. God, I love watching that!
Glo, you are so right on that!
Sharon - Good Looking Guy in your Avatar.... Could that be your son? By golly I'm sure it is! Has been a good party going on in here today........ I am going to lunchNorma - when are you serving up the cake?
I have always had Flag Day in myfavorites - That was the very year everything began for all of us Momsters/Bloggers! Now to lunch!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAR NORMABYRD!!!And Hi to Everyone.Trying to be 'puter techie & debug, got rid of one set of every AM MS blocking windows by removing the program it kept blocking!!Something never used or needed!!Few more to go.I'm already pooped & gotta do major housecleaning! I think lunch would help! BBL ;>)
And, yes, Mema Jo, that is my baby boy!
Here you go Sharon and Norma and all new Eaglet_Momsters and Dadster: CLICK ON BLUE LINK Spunky's Storm
Norma - What a neat birthday present from your DD!Jo - Hope it all works our for your Ryan & Family!
I remember when I was recording Spunky's storm. I was on the free version of Fraps and it would only record for 30 seconds at a time and I had to keep hitting record. My heart was a'thumping!
And I was talking to Mema Jo on the phone at the time!
As you noticed for that video of "Spunky's Storm" there was no sound. It needed no sound just watching him hold on and not be thrown from the nest was as Sharonstated above the best description "heart thumping!".
Thanks Paula I'm having fun with "Two Halloween Matching".Maybe it will improve my brain so as I grow older I will have one in my old age lol
Lil Lun is by himself in close-up.New update on Nethy's progress in N. Africa.C(°ٿ°)DJim
Uh, Norma, I didn't get my piece of cake yet, I think someone ate it.... Hot out there today, gonna have to get the shorts back out-looks like it will be warm for the next 5-6 days.
Mits where are you? Update on cub and it is your job to bring it over.
Thursday, October 9For the past week, nights at the giant panda building have been pretty quiet and uneventful. Lun Lun eats, sleeps and nurses her cub, and because she is able to satisfy his needs quite readily, the cub vocalizes less frequently than he did in earlier weeks. Last night, however, the cub was a bit more vocal than usual after one of his nursing bouts. It seemed like he just couldn’t find a comfy spot to rest within Lun’s paws. Lun did not give up, though, and every time the cub vocalized, she responded to his vocalizations. For example, she sat up, she laid down, and she also licked the cub to soothe him. In the end, the cub quieted down when Lun moved to the other end of the nest box, where they both rested, and the cub was comfortable with his head on Lun’s paw. The cub’s most recent weight is 1546.6 grams.Kate RocaCarnivore Keeper II
Thank you Mits.Eagle at BWO

I should be decorating for Halloween. I am late doing it. The little boy down the street asked when I would be doing the window. Gave him some of my old Halloween things.
I didn't get a pic yet

I got a pic of his tailARE YOU TWO HERE WITH ME ??
Oh Hi Mits! Where's your sister?Here he comes again....
Yep Jo. Watching fat ground hog and some doves.

He is cute but he is not little.

There is a bar right below the pic that says Click Here To Save Current Image........... DUHHHHHHHHHH I have been taking pics the hard way........
Going to get my flu shot..........
I think it is Paxatuney (sp)Phil.

He's a fat little bugger!!
I'm Back! Didn't hurt one little bitJust got reply from the Journal in Martinsburg from John McVey that our news article on the Open House Eaglet Momster/Dadsterwill be published!
good for you, Jo:)
Waiting and hoping for some acknowledgment of receipt from the Herald Mail & The Chronicle.Also going to do what Megan suggested and contact the Observer.Making some progress on this project.Once this is finished all I have to do is 'show up' and enjoy the festivities with my eagle buddies!!
Thanks for the link to Spunky's storm! Bet you all were scared to death that he was going to be blown straight out of that nest! Noticed taht cam was mounted differently back then....early season pics showed all the buildings, which was a cool view....but "close-up" position now is better!
Atlanta is showing panda poo on its site...real nice:(
It is a beautiful day....been sitting outside. No need for sweater, or heat or air...just perfect weather! Has been peaceful and quiet....no barking dogs, etc. But 4-wheelers will probably start now that area kids are home from school...argh!!!!
I am assuming that you have all the outside painting finished, LynnThat is great to be able to sit on the deck and relax! Flu shot went ok I was in and out in no time flat!
Lynn farther up is the link from Flag Day which covers the whole season - go to 11:51 Dana's remark
Yes, Jo, painting is finished. All outside stuff is done except for blowing leaves when they start really falling!! Even the windows are done...of course, inside and curtains are just waiting for me to DO IT!!Yes, I watched that first link earlier...that's the one where I saw all the buildings.
Hi Momsters and Dadsters, just jumping on to say Hi and Have a Great rest of the this special Norma's Birthday Day !Love is in the Air !Work looms, catch you folks in the Friday Morning Light..xo
cam back on Luney
Hey Norma!!!!!! Happy Birthday to youHappy Birthday to youHappy Birthday dear NORMAHappy Birthday to you!!!!And many m-o-r-e!!!!Hope your day has been the greatest!Busy here! Trailer is in the drive way. Taking care of doctor appointments, arrangements for Annie the Mad Cat, mail, paper, etc. We are getting ready!
Eagle at BWO....
been a quiet day there today.
Hi, Lolly. I find that dealing with the mail is a huge problem when you are going to be gone any length of time. Our trip out west took us away for a month and there were bills that needed to be paid while we were gone. I tried to make double payments on everything, hoping that would cover everything. Phone, TV, Computer, Electricity, etc. One bill was short a few dollars and they charged me 52 cents interest!
Busy work day...catch ya'll later, heading home...
Thanks Wanda! We really are not going to be gone too long this trip. We are planning this to be two weeks or a little more. Last Fall we went to New England and then we were gone for a month. I am not one to be gone for a long time. My home, yard and grandsons can not get along without me. LOL
I worry about my yard. Crazy, huh? But we have an automatic sprinkler system and hopefully there will not be a frost while we are gone. Have not moved stuff into the greenhouse.
Lolly I can turn off the Momster's emails when you leave. Just let meknow.I just finished a really good roast beef (in the crock pot) dinner!Now I'm ready for dessert - but I can't find anything good! I got a personal phone call from the Martinsburg Journal - Young lady said they get swamped with letters to the editor but that she would do her very best to get it in there - maybe as an editorial.Our Group Is Going To Be Famous!and maybe more people will pay attention to our Liberty & Belle!
Hey Lolly - when you going to make the cheesecake? We will really welcome you withOPEN ARMS - cheesecake or not!!Sissy is to be working on her upsidedown Pineapple cake. Oh Yeah!
Hi, I am back home. It is 59 here, I would gladly take your temps. Off to mow the front yard. We didn't see much--some ducks, geese, a few heron and a blue jay. Trees were pretty.BBL
I am sure that Don appreciated the company and as you said the treesshould have really been beautiful.
EAGLE still at BWO...guess ours should be visiting soon
BWO eagle is still there. Where are Lib and Belle?
we need Thelma to come on and ask for them to visit:)
THELMA WHERE ARE YOU?
I got the front yard mowed. Jo, I got all the way to Yankton and Don decided it was too cold. GRRR! I called Mary up and she and her friend were on the river about 15 miles from Vermillion. They waited for me to get there and off we went. We ended up at Clay County State Park, about 5 miles from me. We had a great day, but it was a little chilly. I could see why Don didn't want to go. He was wearing long sleeves when it was in the 70's.
I sure like Deb's videos BUT I wantto see those 2 in person......
BRB 15 minutes
Deb - sorry about that - at least for Don. Your day turned out ok!Don is of the age that your blood thins and you can really get coldthroughout - I know all about thatdarn it!
off to reheat leftovers...bbl
Well I am going to leave. Maybe Lib and Belle will come.
BWO eagle is gone.
That was short and sweet.
Yay!!! Eagle! I came back at the right time!
she is really moving those sticks
Aww, come on, Lib... don't you want some Spider for dessert?
GOOD JOB, CEIL...THANK YOU!
yes, Ceil is our new, Thelma:)

Jo, that would be great to turn off the momsters email!!!!!! We are leaving Tuesday AM! I am waiting until this weekend, probably Sunday to make the cheesecake. Appreciate the fact that you will welcome me cheesecake or not. LOL Our refrigerator in the trailer is not that big. ha! But, we are going to manage it. We have talked about what we can do.Going to church this evening for our women's group. Then tomorrow start loading. I like to have several days to load and take my time. We also went to the library today to get books to listen to as we travel. Mostly books Jack like as he is the driver and I am the navigator.
