Thanks Steve. I'll get the others.

magpie said...

Thanks, Red - I'm here....

Thanks, Steve, We're all going to be on board here soon.

magpie said...

Bwo seems to be working..

Why is Luney so very still ??? I like to see that little belly move !

magpie said...

Beauty of a White Bird at BWO -
Gull maybe?

magpie said...

With food, no less...

magpie said...

Hope you saw it, it's gone, I got a pic, might put it up on Yahoo. Got two pics actually...

magpie said...

Okay I'm relieved Luney is moving..
Whew! ♥ ☺

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING RED, DANA & HELEN...
Do you feel better after your shower, Margy? What are your hours today?

Red said...

Sorry Margy, I was catching up on other posts. I see Sharon is getting a little attention. Emergency rooms are pretty packed now days it seems.

Red said...

Good morning Wanda.

Costume Lady said...

Luney reminds me of my DENISE when she was a baby. She slept all the time...I would have to awaken her to feed her and play with her :)
KARLA, on the other hand, never slept :(

Mits said...

Margy, can you do me a favor and send the pic of the gull to me....since I changed my e-mail, don't get momster mail.

Costume Lady said...

When I had my Mom in the ER last week, it was a nightmare for her.
She couldn't breath (properly) and no one seemed to be doing anything about it. She finally asked a male nurse to give her some oxygen...he did and then she could breath better. I didn't feel they were attentive enough. I think an 88 year old woman need more care than what she got.

magpie said...

Sure will, MITS - working on it now..
xo

Wanda- I go back in at 6 pm for another 12 then off for a couple..

Costume Lady said...

Helen, have you found anything good about your new service? I would be pulling my hair out.

magpie said...

Okay, White Bird on Eaglet Momsters, and coming to you via Verizon, MITS.

magpie said...

Gobblers in Pennsylvania, as usual...

magpie said...

Computer real slow, time for a clean up...first me, now the computer
Back in a short while...xo

magpie said...

Maine is giving me Motion Sickness...

Woof !

wvgal_dana said...

Hedgie-Lynn when you come in you'll catch this comment. I have been to St. Leo's. It is truly a beautiful Church. Filmed a wedding at St. Leo's so beautiful. Met Father Brian. I believe he is
such a different Priest than at St. Joe's in Martinsburg. I believe "older traditation at St. Joe's".
Had gone to several things at the older St. Leo's before new built.

Mits said...

lets see, Wanda...it is different, but I really like how much more easy it is to send e-mails and to move them around to my different files, it was very easy to move my e-mail addresses to my web-mail...I'll get used to it:)

Mits said...

gull back..

Costume Lady said...

I don't know if this VIDEO has circulated to you all yet, but my S-I-L sent it to me yesterday and I love it. Similar to the lighted house from last year. I posted it on JUST FOR FUN. This should put you in the Holiday Spriit...enjoy!

wvgal_dana said...

Prayers going Sharon's want that God will guide the nurses, people doing test and drs. to HIS knowledge to medically treat Sharon correctly. So she is heading towards healing.

Prayers for Sissy and Tom that Tom's surgery goes well and he is home and healing process begins.

Prayers for Paula and John. Also for Michael's concern for his brother. May John find a PEACE that surpasses all understanding. God also be with the extended family of John's father.

Prayers for those that need them. Praises for answered Prayers.

wvgal_dana said...

Donkeys out Norma and it is wet!

wvgal_dana said...

Is that Oscar the sea gull from CT Nest????

wvgal_dana said...

Turkeys at PA

wvgal_dana said...

Woodpecker on suet pack at Harrison, Mi also squirrels out.

Costume Lady said...

Our cam is shot for the day. I'm thinking on the lines as Helen, when she wondered why Maine and so many of the other cams don't have problems like we do. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM? WHY, IN TWO YEARS HAS IT NEVER BEEN RELIABLE... IT IS DOWN MORE OFTEN THAN IT IS UP AND RUNNING?

Mits said...

THANKS, WANDA, That was amazing;)!

Costume Lady said...

Glad you enjoyed it Helen. I have watched it 3 times this morning :)

Mits said...

think they need the Every Ready Bunny;), Wanda

Mits said...

2 eagles come and gone at BWO

Mits said...

SEA EAGLES AT FINLAND

Mits said...

SUZANNE will be happy to see them

Mits said...

sea eagles poof

wvgal_dana said...

I checked out the video Wanda it is like the one I got in emails. I liked this one that was sent around a lot better than the one last year. Probably because I loved hearing "Amazing Grace".

Costume Lady said...

Yes, Dana, I liked this video for the same reason...music is better. Like Helen, I love this sort of thing. Will post more if I get any.

Mits said...

gobble gobble at PA

Costume Lady said...

Dana, are you considered Falling Waters where you are? I'm sending out a notice of a BAD CHECK to a customer in Falling Waters, and can't make out the zip code.

Mits said...

oh no, not another bad check, Wanda:(

magpie said...

Sea Eagles, Great! they came in and out while my computer was getting its bath! Ha. Thanks, MITS -
Tried to send email of pics to BWO - will find out later if they go through I guess. Ceil says gull, I go with that too. I never say Oscar at CT...

Wanda if you don't get your zip code info I can help you later.
Don't forget or course you can report that kind of thing to Law Enforcement and/or Magistrate Court...

I have got to get to bed...! z z z
Good Day,
Peace, Love and Prayers, to all


xo ♥

magpie said...

..duh, never SAW Oscar...

ceil said...

Good morning just stopped in to say hi and tell Wanda I loved the picture. Margy have a good sleep. Morning sister. Off to neighbors she needs some bills paid. Have a great day. Hope Sharon feels better soon and Tom's surgery goes well. Will be thinking of Paula and family.

Mits said...

puppy cam must go off the air at night...only 6 o' clock in a.m. there.

wvgal_dana said...

No I'm not at Falling Waters Wanda but their zip is 25419

wvgal_dana said...

I may be mistaken but I thought I read some place. When the puppies go each will have a webcam at their new place.

wvgal_dana said...

new places that should be

Mits said...

hello my Sister:):)!

wvgal_dana said...

Eagle at BWO

Mits said...

eagle back at BWO

Costume Lady said...

Not too bad, Helen. I only get one or two a season. I have had to take one to court...and that was the woman who embezzled money from a fund for a little girl dying from a brain tumor. The little girl has since died and the perpertrator only got probation. I did get my money back, but I would rather have seen her go to jail!!

wvgal_dana said...

Sorry Margy that was 2 season ago....when Spunky, MsInBetween and BigBoy was there as our eaglets. Sorry for confusing you gal.

Mits said...

don't worry Wanda, she will get there one day, if she keeps living this lifestyle.

wvgal_dana said...

Wanda very seldom to they go to jail for mishandling of checks. I remember several would have liked to see sit some time in jail. They were famous for checking bad checks at many places not just to us as a renter. Always got my money though like you.

Costume Lady said...

Good Morning, Ceil.
Thanks Dana...it looked like 25418...got her going now...25.00 service charge to her. Bad, Bad, Girl!

wvgal_dana said...

And always got the court cost of filing too. Back then was $60.00 plus $25.00 for the bad check to us and then whatever rent was owed.

wvgal_dana said...

Mits said...

MANATEE CAM

Manatees and jumping dolphin:)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning Friends!! Sitting here in the waiting room, Tom just went to surgery. They gave him Versed and knocked him out cold before they took him. Said it should take about 1-1/2 hours, then 45 minutes in recovery.

Talked to Sharon, just came back from CT, still no plan. Waiting on results.

normabyrd said...

Please bring me up-to-date on SHARON?---Is she having more problems?

deb said...

Good Morning, everyone. Wanda, thank you for the Amazing video. I googled it so I could get a link and send it out and found this page:

Christmas videos

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I take it our live feed is down, huh? It is snowing like crazy here. I keep checking to see if they are closing schools. The roads are so bad, I hope they wait until later.

Costume Lady said...

SMILE, SISSY, IT WILL ALL BE OVER SOON. Tom will be OK and Sharon will be OK...then you can relax :)

Mits said...

I just talked to Sharon too, Sissy, she is slammed wore out, and so are the guys.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Norma, Sharon as an infection. The docs there think it is probably superficial but they are checking to be sure it is not in the mesh they used to fix the hernias.

Mits said...

thanks, Deb, I love that kind of stuff.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I know Mits. They need to get a room and rest before they try to come back home if they do release Sher.

Costume Lady said...

THANKS, DEB...that is a wonderful site. I will be busy all day :) :)

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' SISSY!---Oh child---wish you weren't so far away---I would come down & help you!!---Holiday time too!----Pray that TOM heals fast!!---GIVE MY LOVE to MATTIE---

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

We have already gotten probably 2 inches since me and Tom got here to the hospital. That was at 7:30 and it was not snowing at all then.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I tell you what, technology is just so cool. To be sitting here in this boring lobby and be able to be with some of my dearest friends. That is good stuff!!

normabyrd said...

DANA!----Only about a half a dozen DONKEYS now!!---

wvgal_dana said...

I've been having a Titmouse coming to the feeder here. I always have to laugh at Ed. He yells "baby blue jay at feeder" lol Because it has the topnotch on top of head like a blue jay....he cracks me up .. never will get it right..he doesn't want too... lol

Mits said...

puppies are on air now:)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Tom calls a titmouse a "shark bird". Don't ask me why, just something about it reminded him of a shark one day.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

We have zillions of titmouses (titmice?) and chickadees all the time.

Mits said...

snowing at PA

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning with Good News - Tom really had a fast one - Get him out of there before you get snowed in!
So happy Sissy that you can feel some relief that Tom's surgery is finished.
I am sure there is more relief headed your way! Thanks so much for all the updates on Sharon. ((hugs))

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I love that puppy cam. We can see all the fun without all the mess!!

TUESDAY UPDATE FROM ATLANTA....Tuesday, November 25
A number of people have questioned whether or not Mei Lan and the new cub will ever have the opportunity to meet. These questions stem from our very human need for sociality, which often makes it difficult for us to understand how solitary or quasi-solitary animals make a life.

Because the amount of time and energy a female must expend to raise a cub is quite significant, as well as the fact that resources are limited, a female must concentrate all her efforts on her most recent offspring; or, in the absence of a cub, on her own health and well-being. With only two exceptions –when a male and a receptive female meet, court and breed during those few estrous days each year, and when a female is raising her offspring - giant pandas live their entire lives alone.

To the human mind, it seems odd that brother and sister would never meet, have the opportunity to know each other or play together. However, solitary animals do not have the same needs as social species. In fact, and in spite of the seemingly inseparable nature of the mother-cub experience, once a giant panda cub is weaned it will leave its mother to find its own home range and live a solitary life. A female giant panda represents an enormous danger to any intruder, especially when raising a cub. Lun Lun would view Mei Lan as a potential threat to the cub and drain on her resources, and thus would respond aggressively. Therefore, Mei Lan and the cub must remain strangers.

Where are those pups?

SAN FRANCISCO, SISSY

eagle just landed BWO

hedgie said...

Hi gang. Lots of activity this am....glad Tom is out of surgery, Sissy, and hoping that SHaron soon gets results. She must be totally exhausted. The boys are young, but should get rest before driving back to Bluefield, for sure.
We apparently had ice drizzle/mist during the night...daughter says gd slipped and fell on porch, and that roads are cindered in alot of places. Just glad it's not snow!
Bill's mom being discharged tomorrow...referral to Winchester for vascular and cardiology--needs carotid artery stents and a pacemaker.
Gotta get ready to take SIL to local VA apptmt. this afternoon, so will check out neat new sites everyone is providing later.
Hope everyone has a good day. Be back this evening!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

They have a pileated woodpecker on the Today show. We have one that comes to our yard all the time.

hedgie said...

Oh, one more thing...Mits, can't you just type yahoo.com into your address bar and access momster your mail from the main yahoo page? Maybe Red or Paulleo can tell you how to do it!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Sharon is being admitted. Pocket of fluid above the mesh. Radiologist has to put another drain in and she has to be on antibiotics for 4 weeks or more. If that doesn't work, will have to remove the mesh. Lord have mercy on us all!! She sounds so down.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

This sux. I am postponing Thanksgiving dinner until she comes home.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

He said if it drained really really well there was a possibility that she could come home by Thanksgiving but probably not.

hedgie said...

One more one thing---I'm getting to be like Margy!!--Norma, and other WV folks...did you hear that Cecil Underwood died?

normabyrd said...

DANA---I have a lot of TUFTED TITMOUSES!!---ho!---One of my favorite birds!

Mits said...

2 eagles at BWO, one is on the top of cam

Mits said...

hope she doesn't not have to go thru another operation, Sissy

deb said...

Sissy, at least Sharon has a diagnosis and can begin healing. We'll just all pray that the meds and the drain take care of everything. Good idea about waiting for Sharon to get home to have Thanksgiving.

I am glad Tom is done with surgery so quickly and is in recovery already!

Mema Jo said...

You're so SPECIAL SISSY
To even think of postponing the Thanksgiving Dinner until Sharon can come home is so commendable!
The good Lord will take care of you and all your loved ones.
KEEP THE FAITH! ((((hugs))))

Mits said...

hope the eagle at BWO does not do a poop shoot!

Costume Lady said...

SUSSEX CO: Michael Vick pleads guilty to one count of dogfighting, not guilty to one count of cruelty to animals. The plea deal is accepted by the judge, who sentences Vick to a 3-year suspended sentence.

Mits said...

Tai is watching Mei and Tian

deb said...

I lost my still cam page-it won't reopen. There must be a bird near the microphone.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Well, I am in the room with Tom. He is really sore but he looks good. That is a good thing for sure!! Haven't talked to the doctor yet but I think everything went well.

Mits said...

good news, Sissy:)

normabyrd said...

HEY HEDGIE!!---Aren't you proud of WV too!---ho!---I grew up on the western side of the state!!---I did know Gov.

Costume Lady said...

Just a reminder for those of you who are cooking a turkey for Thanksgiving...TIME TO START THAWING IT OUT! I started thawing mine yesterday. I will cook it tomorrow, let it cool, then carve it and marinate the slices in seasoned turkey broth from the turkey that I cooked a few weeks ago. Then I take the turkey and dressing to Mom's and reheat it on Thursday...makes it a lot easier on me.

deb said...

The puppy parents are going to have a mess to clean up when they get home! Shredding the puppy pad!

paulleo said...

Good Afternoon All
I pray that those doctors and nurses do a very good job.

Snow is all over the weather map. As you know it`s not here yet. Just saw Lib and Belle for the first time with the new camera. Close up of the nest looks like it is in good shape for the winter.

BTW...Did you all know that you can zoom in with the interactive weather map and actually "see" the roads you drive on and even your house if it is more than about a year old? I believe that I found the NCTC. (I think the satellite view is better than Mapquest)

Bye for now. Have a good lunch!

Mema Jo said...

Late last evening they did the same thing... Puppies' dad cleaned it up with small vacuum........

Mits said...

what a mess!

Mema Jo said...

Wow Paul - thanks for reminding me
about Lunch. C U Later

Mema Jo said...

I hear a bird..........
