Wow, Way Cool Steve....Thanks !!

Lolly said...

Good morning, Margy! And, thanks Steve. Have a great day!

magpie said...

Happy Anniversary Wishes to Carolyn and Charlie ♥ ♥
and to Ashley and Michael ♥ ♥

Lolly said...

Lynn, just opened Michael's and then Laurel's wedding pictures. Wow, have not looked at them for a while. The interesting thing is to look at their flower girls who are now teenagers!

magpie said...

cute commentaries, Lolly, regarding Jack's birthday greetings, and the fiance/girlfriend thing with Michael and Ashley

Good Morning and Best Wishes everyone for a good day

xo

Lolly said...

After church I am going to scan and share a few pictures.

Lolly said...

Whoops, time got by me!

Gotta run!

BBL

magpie said...

Sounds like a precise plan with Ajay and Paula's and the family's plans....

Prayers for a good outcome on all fronts....and also for all our others here with prayer needs

magpie said...

been listening, have not seen nor heard hide nor hair of Palmer...
glad to read that Liberty had a little stint in the nest Saturday morning...

the picture on my avatar, might be Wanda's first tomato...
have a couple of others that might be ready first....

magpie said...

enjoy your totally family day, Jo...
reminds me of a cartoon, Roly Poly, a totally chocolate breakfast

(in which, the kids traded duties with the parents for a day and this is how they thought breakfast should be )

sounds like Lynn had choco and peanut butter for breakfast!

got to scram...
Will be thinking of you all...

Nice to hear from Shirley this morning too !


xox

Judie said...

Mornin', Steve. Thanks for the new thread.

Thanks for the call over, Margy.

Thanks, Lynn for the recipe and for the picture of Carolyn and Charlie. Both look nice. lol

To second Jo's question -- chocolate icing? Giant peanut butter cup?

Happy anniversary to Michael and Ashley.

hedgie said...

Thanks for callover, Margy.
Tomato is looking grand!

Jo, I used chocolate----for Christie. I would rather have used a brown-sugar icing of some kind.

Lolly, recipe sent.
As for bridal attendants-----C&C's flower girl (his niece) is now a mother, a druggie and jail bird... :( Her sister has custody of the child.

hedgie said...

Margy, I too suspect that Palmer has left us for good. Very empty feeling. Seems too soon....but we just have to pray that she is happy and well, learning and exploring.

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning to Everyone in Eagle Land.

Thanks to ALL of you for your prayers. Never had so much pain layiing on my back for an MRI..
which I've had several of on my back. I forgot to ask when results,
I'm sure dr will call me.

Margy I love your tomato avatar cute ( : hee hee

Happy Anniversary to Ashley and Michael also Carolyn and Charlie

Hedgie your comment cracked me up !!!!!!

P.S. Glad I took out the warranty on the lap top "the Mother Board went" .... that was a short time to
have a laptop. Expecting for them to send back any day.

wvgal_dana said...

I get to pay $682.00 for that MRI
:(

paula eagleholic said...

Howdy, all.

Getting ready to head to hospital for a little while. Surgery scheduled for 11am on Monday.

Love the tomato pic, Margy.

Congrats to all the wedding anniversaries!

Wonder if Lib eating the fish in the nest the other night was our sign that Palmer has departed?

paula eagleholic said...

Dana, hope the Dr can find something on the MRI, glad you were able to make it through the procedure. Hope relief comes your way soon.

wvgal_dana said...

Paula who is having surgery?????

Lynne2 said...

Hello all!

Just a quick pop in to say hi and wish Carolyn and Charlie and Michael and Ashley Happy Anniversary!!

Dana, good to see you back and prayers for your MRI results to be good.

Paula, prayers for Ajay's surgery tomorrow...discectomy,right?

Heading back to the garden where GUESS WHAT!!!! I have found 4 2nd instar monarch caterpillars on my milkweeds!!! They are 5mm, lean, mean eating machines! Busy searching for information on raising them.

wvgal_dana said...

Lynne2 WANDA can tell you all about raising them

hedgie said...

LOL, Lynne----did you use a ruler??? Have fun!

Dana, that's an awful big chunk of change.......argh! FYI: Paula's DIL must have back surgery tomorrow. Sudden, severe worsening of her symptoms and put in hospital late this past week.

Lynne2 said...

oh, yes that's right Dana...thanks! I'm going to bring them in as in the wild they have only a 3% chance of making it to "butterflyhood" So many parasites will kill them!

Lynne2 said...

yes I did Lynn! Plan on keeping a daily journal that I will bore you all to tears with! Too small to get a pic with my own cam but friend Dave is coming with his today and will probably get some for me!

wvgal_dana said...

I never had gotten to see an egg, then I guess crystallized (?), and butterfly comes to life. Until Wanda put her video camera on the container she had it in. I do remember milkweed. It was great watching I loved it again thanks WANDA.

Oh My PRAYERS for Paula's DIL....success and healing and then pain free.

Looks a bit warmish back East yet, and we are having a heat wave out here.

C(°ٿ°)D Jim

movin said...

Good morning, Dana. Good to see your smiling face on the blog again.


C(°ٿ°)D Jim

movin said...

There's one eaglet on nest at WE, but PH has a crow visitor looking for nestovers.

C(°ٿ°)D Jim

wvgal_dana said...

Hi Jim hope your doing well. No allergies this year?

It took over 5 minutes just for this computer to refresh. Couldn't do anything till hour-glass changed.

BEagle said...

It made me very happy to see Dana posting today.

Hi Dana!

It also made me happy to see Shirley reporting while she relaxes in a beautiful, cool place.

Everyone else makes me happy with their postings esp. of peanut butter cake with choco icing! : )

Maybe Lib was the finale of Palmer and the nest Paula.

BEagle said...

I see that old crow Jim.

I hope #07 is okay. Just waiting for his fishing lessons.

Crow just flew off.

The two TH twins were off early this morning.

Mema Jo said...

Got caught for a phone call... I need to read again but from FB

Lily the Black Bear July 18, 2010 (10:56 AM CDT) Lily and Hope spent the night about 1/2 mile apart. Lily has moved back towards Hope and we observed Hope actively searching for Lily. -- SM

BEagle said...

I saw pictures of Solo fledged from the Sidney nest.

She is mighty pretty. There may be an issue with a nictitating eye but the postings said nothing to be concerned about.

All the pictures show a beautiful juvie and action pictures of her flying.

Would like to see some Palmer action once more. The people at NCTC probably see a lot of her.

hedgie said...

July 18, 2010 (10:56 AM CDT) Lily and Hope spent the night about 1/2 mile apart. Lily has moved back towards Hope and we observed Hope actively searching for Lily. -- SM

hedgie said...

Hi, Jim. Yep, heat wave here, too....blah! But better than snow!

BEagle said...

Oh dear. Does that mean that Hope is being separated from Lily again
Hedgie?

BEagle said...

I think I just heard Palmer!

BEagle said...

No, it wasn't Palmer. Sorry. I had the sound off. The eagle calls were from the WE nest.

hedgie said...

BEagle, report from yesterday said that GPS showed they were not together........more drama we don't need. MTBR.

wvgal_dana said...

Thank you BEagle. BEagle can you get my email addy and send me a message? I need to ask you something? Do you get the Eagle_Momster mail. If so my email addy would be on there. Or just about anyone you email to has my email address.

Mema Jo said...

Dana -praying that the MRI results will have an answer to ending all your pains! That would be so wonderful.

Mema Jo said...

Now how about all these anniversaries on today's date!

Congratulations and may you share many many more years together
Carolyn & Charles
Michael & Ashley

Your parents are proud of you!

Mema Jo said...

BEagle - look up around 12:26pm my comment and then down to 12:32pm
Lynn's comment.....
lol You see that even us old timers repeat the news

BEagle said...

I am guessing that more pathology reports will be up and coming about Phoenix.

Surely others are coming to the same conclusions that the pneumonia was a result of an already weakened state.

BEagle said...

I will see what I can do Dana.

Time for me to get busy. All this eagle watching has put me behind.

Now I understand Jo. Post away!

Post scriptum
I have little tomatoes growing now. Since I put up a cage around the plant to keep the deer out.

I WILL HAVE TOMATOES! : D

wvgal_dana said...

Thanks Paula for video and Mema Jo for the one on Phenix-The Tribute was beautiful, painful and teary.

Going to lay down awhile. Been sitting too long maybe.

NatureNut said...

Happy Sunday to Everyone in (quiet) Eagleland!
Paula, Prayers and good wishes for Ajay. I know she will be fine! They do amazing things nowadays.
Happy Anniverseries for the younger generation~~~Carolyn & Charlie and Michael and Ashley!!
Glad Jack survived his B'Day!!!
Above the rubble at the Park, I added some osprey cam and wren pictures. A lot of the trees were cut down and sawed into pieces by special tree crew.Staff working on Wed. AM were blocked near the Visitor Ctr., but could drive around on the grass. They want to leave shed alone until insurance comes.I didn't get a chance to see, but they said Nature Study loop was a mess & a lot of cleaning took place there.I heard our giant beech tree that has a "cave" under the roots is still standing!

Mema Jo said...

The pics are very descriptive Loretta of the damage.
Loved the pics of the osprey being fostered!
Waiting to hear more about the
Wren Family.......

Mema Jo said...

Going to take an afternoon break

BBL

hedgie said...

Ex got dibs on Christies' actual b-day for dinner (tomorrow), so we are going to Outback today. Just had a piece of my share of her cake to tide me over! Still as good as it was last night!

Mema Jo said...

You are bad! Enjoy the Outback!

hedgie said...

NOW HEAR THIS! British (no big surprise) studies have shown that tea is MORE hydrating than plain water! How 'bout that? Knew I was doing something right..of course, mine is iced, and in the report they only showed them drinking it hot----and it looked VERY weak!

Mema Jo said...

I know I said I was taking a break

Link to Osprey cam


I just witnessed the 2 adult's fly in
and with their live feed it was spectacular. The chick gave all the clues that it was about to happen.

Now I may be a goner for a while........

Mema Jo said...

Lynn - do you mean that guy you didn't recognize is taking your daughter out to dinner? Well I never!

NatureNut said...

OMG!!! I just wrote a note and Blogger said---Service Unavailable--Error 503! Let's see if this works.....

hedgie said...

Yep, Jo...he's the one! Just realized something else that MAY have caused my lapse----no glasses! Him, that is. Guess he either is wearing contacts or had laser surgery! LOL!

NatureNut said...

Will try again~~~~
Shirley's vacation notes are very refreshing!!!
Dana, hope they will fix you up better after your new test. Prayers for you.
I've seen mention of PB,etc. on here & want to tell you what I bought last week at Safeway. They had an interesting sounding ice cream---Chocolate Moose Tracks!!I usually stay away from fat & sugar, but this was on sale and Light. Choc. ice cream (have in vanilla, too), pieces of choc., tiny choc. PB cups, and swirled Moose Tracks fudge!!!Yum Yum

NatureNut said...

Yum to Lynn. Outback sounds wonderful!! Enjoy!

hedgie said...

Comment on your pics, Loreeta!

hedgie said...

Loretta, try the Turkey Hill Peanut Butter chocolate. MUCH better than moose tracks!!!

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Gang!

Getting here a bit late today; have been outside soaking my patio plants so they won't croak from the heat! It IS much cooler here today, so far, though. Got down to about 62 last night!

Had fun last night--went out to Chinese dinner with Sis-in-law and Bro-in-law. After dinner, went back to their house, and watched the movie "2012" on TV. Considering the special effects, no wonder everyone back east panicked at the thought of having an earthquake!

Didn't get here to the blog last night--just hit the hay, because it was pretty late, and we were tired.

Ms Bookworm said...

Trying to decide what to do about cleaning up the yard and patio. Have the evidence of TONS of poop shoots from the herons all over just EVERYWHERE outside. Need to put a jet spray nozzle on the hose, after donning latex gloves (the hose is coated with bird poop, too!), and spray the heck out of everything in sight! All 3 huge trees are covered with white spots, and the entire yard smells like dead fish! We're SUPPOSED to be conserving water here (near-drought conditions in SoCal), but it CAN'T be too sanitary to have all that bird poop present!

By the way, was disappointed yesterday to have missed a real photo op--there was a baby heron perched on top of our next-door neighbor's car when we left to go shopping yesterday morning. Didn't have my camera with me! Drat. :o[
Would've been a classic!

Ms Bookworm said...

Oh--wanted to mention that we haven't seen or heard our trigger-happy neighbor or his family for over a month, and now we're beginning to think that they have moved away! Have furtively tried looking in their patio window from our back yard, and can't see anything on the wall where they had a large painting hanging. MTBR.... :o] (DON'T miss the firearms!)

Mema Jo said...

Get your bird watching binoculars out, Andy!

Mema Jo said...

On the link to the Osprey cam...
I was just watching the 2 chicks - 1 had food in its talon and was very concerned about what was going on out and about - the other chick was eying up the food and almost snatched it!!!
Too funny

Mema Jo said...

It took a while for the live feed to start. I almost gave up on it and then the commercial came on and after that the feed started.

MT Nest

kickngbird said...

Just spoke to friend of mine who is a vet that specializes in birds. I asked her about the kind of pneumonia that Phoenix had. She said raptor rehab places deal with this problem a lot - birds that are stressed or whose immune systems aren't strong can get fungal pneumonia and once they have it, it is nearly impossible to treat.

She said that just because of the eaglet's age, her immune system is not as good as an adult's, which by itself would make her more susceptible to something like this than her parents. In humans, we often hear that the young (even teenagers) and the old are more at risk when infectious diseases are in the news. My friend did say, however, that it's possible that another contributing factor may be revealed in the test results that haven't come in yet.

But bad luck and her not fully developed immune system may be all there is to it.

I got the courage to watch some Hornby nest video of Wednesday afternoon (she died that evening around 7) - Phoenix had lost her appetite, but she was on her feet and was not struggling in her breathing at that time, so the end came very quickly. That is indeed a blessing.

And she drew her last breath looking out over the "prow" of the nest, toward the water and toward Doug's house (the man who arranged for the cams in the tree, and who has so loved her and her parents, the eagles who have nested there for 20 years).

hedgie said...

Hey, Andy, it's a long way for one of us to come to bail you out if you get arrested for water usage!! Oops, Jim will just have to be the one to do it!!
Sorry everything is such a mess----but think of how much entertainment those birds give you!!

Thought I just heard a sneeze at the nest----but probably not. No other noise that sounded like an eagle!

Lolly said...

Home from church and have had a panda nap and lunch.

Loved Lynn's idea of posting a wedding pic of her daughter so I did so on fb of A and M. Now going to load it on to here.

hedgie said...

kickngbird, that was pretty much how I read it from my research. Sad. And you're right about her last view being peaceful. Just a shame that she can't be buried at "home".

Time for me to finish getting ready to get outta here. See all y'all later. Enjoy your afternoon and evening.

Mema Jo said...

Thanks for that bit of info KBird.
It's the same reason we lost little
Hugo the stork a few years back. They completely demolished that nest and actually remade most of it. So far so good.

It is just so sad because it likes strikes without much warning.

Lolly said...

I think we all want to hear a sneeze at the nest!

Okay, have loaded wedding pics on my blog Family pics. Thanks Lynn for the idea.

I am on the computer not the laptop. Would someone please send me the directions again to get rid of the privacy thingy each time I log on.

Mema Jo said...

Beautiful pictures of the childrens' wedding, Lolly.

Recent wedding of our gd - the hardbound book they had made for the parents was awesome. With so many pics being taken - they picked out just the right ones!

Lolly said...

It is the thing that say website security and to see the avatars.

Mema Jo said...

I don't think anyone would mind hearing the shrill screaming Palmer!

Lolly said...

While on my blog saw where Wanda had asked a question about the burp cloths.

Wanda, I just decorated prefold diapers.

Mema Jo said...

Is this what Paula emailed you before Lolly...... if so - save it cause I almost couldn't find it. Mits gave it to me.......

When Mom and me was riding home from me getting MRI. I said Mom the strangest thing happened to me and I didn't dream it. "Yesterday morning very early Little Man woke me to go out. So I walked out on porch to watch him. He wasn't barking. I thought WOW that is different!! Then all of a sudden I knew a Jet Plane had fallen from the sky and was going to hit the house, I told God please don't let it just injury me and put me in hospital and a lot of care needed and expense. I am ready to go PLEASE GOD JUST GO AHEAD AND TAKE ME." I looked at the sky strange I thought none of those streaks that a jet makes. I knew it was level with my trees and was going to hit. Funny no fear at all. Then the sound disappeared!!! Strange I thought. Mom then told me about the earthquake. I said Mom I didn't feel any earthquake. She then began telling me what people "heard". Then some fear did hit me. WOW it was really strange.

Mema Jo said...

Breezy at the nest but it is still MT

Headed out with hubby to get dinner..

BBShortly.....

Dana I'm glad that jet didn't come and swoop you up!

BEagle said...

I wanted you to see this question a newbie to eagle watching had posted since Phoenix location was mentioned on our posts a few minutes ago.

"I have one question. Would Phoenix had been able to see the babysitting tree from the position she was in when she died?"

artist

Artist:
"Yes, Mom and Phoenix were facing each other, as reported by those on the ground" Smiley

Nature can be very touching.

BEagle said...

I keep forgetting to say that those baby burp clothes are so adorable and sweet. Lolly, you do well.

What a great idea!

BEagle said...

Dana. When I lived in TN and Kansas there were always tornado warnings.

A tornado that's above you can sound like a freight train going through the house. It is indeed scary and can take you right to the arms of God.

If it doesn't touch down and simply moves on then we are okay.

Lolly said...

Just got on. Thank you, BEagle! Gave the burp cloths to the Grandma to be when they were here Friday. She thought they were cute and she said Jenny and Michael are going to LOVE the Gig Em. LOL

Thanks Jo! That was what I needed. Need to get that new computer in working order. lol You know, it is much faster than this laptop, but I do like sitting here in my chair.

BEagle said...

There is some concern about #07 on the WE nest according to the chat group.

He is out of sight from the cam but can be heard.

I do hope he snaps out of it.

BEagle said...

BBL

Lolly said...

Lily the Black Bear July 18, 2010 (5:18 PM CDT) Hope has succeeded in tracking down Lily, but Lily does not seem too happy about being found! We're waiting to see what develops. -- SM

WHAT is this bears problem?!!!!! Get a grip Lily! Be a mommy!!!!

Lolly said...

The cam is so quiet. Where is the loud hum? Spooky!☺

Mema Jo said...

Just back from dinner. Need to turn live feed back on..... Interesting.
Breezy but no wind noise. I only get some static if I turn speaker volume up to the limit.

BEagle said...

Yea.......what's wrong with that mother bear!!!!

Don't you just want to get right in her face?

BEagle said...

Well.................
The tt shells are still in the nest.
I guess we could watch them NOT move.

BEagle said...

BBL

BEagle said...

Big fight on the TH nest. Feathers flying everywhere.

Adult, who dutifully brought the young ones food, had to scoot to save his feathers.

LOL. They are still at it. The smaller one just nailed the big one.
I guess he's fed up with being bullied.

Costume Lady said...

WOW! That tomato is a beauty...very healthy looking. I can already visualize 3 or 4 BLTs with that one tomato:) Might be ready by Wednesday...if Myrtle the turtle doesn't come up the road and get it;)

Lolly said...

LOL Like that! Watch the turtle shells not move!

Okay, Jack thinks he has to eat. Gosh, the "elderly" are so demanding. LOL Have my choice of what leftovers to heat up. Life is rough.

Yes, want to get in the face of the so called "mommy" bear and say "Grrrrrrrrrr"! I'd like to show her a thing or two!!!

BEagle said...

Here's the forum page with video clips of the tree climber On Hornby Island.

There are several clips.

BEagle said...

Dr. Sharpe has been notified about #07 on the WE nest. Good thing.

BBL

Mema Jo said...

Was watching TH for a while. Good news concerning Dr Sharpe being notified.


I am heading into TV for a program that hubby taped.

BBILW

hedgie said...

Glad there's still plenty of daylight left at TH. Hope Dr. Sharpe gets there relatively quickly to check things out.

Hi, gang! Back with a full tummy and a nice time with my kids!

Lily needs some mothering lessons for sure! ARGH!

Lolly said...

Is it WE or TH that there is conern? I thought it was West End but now you are talking TH.

BEagle said...

They said Dr. Sharpe was busy with other nest issues. :(

Lolly said...

I am so glad for technology. Laurel is in Houston and texted me a picture of Jacob's eye. I encouraged her to get him to Minor Emergency Center. Turns out he has a sty that has become infected. Poor baby has a very swollen eye. Too bad something like that happens on a special weekend.

BEagle said...

I was referring to #07 at the WE nest at 7:55.

I have the web page that has all three of the IWS nests running on one page.

There is only one chat on the page, so the group talks about all the nests. Well.....TH and WE.

The Pelican Harbor nest has no activity now. Similar to the royal nest.

Here the link for the IWS group page.


http://www.iws.org/bald_eagles/nestchat.html

hedgie said...

Poor Jacob. Bet he's miserable!

Lolly said...

Yes, Laurel said it was bothering him, but the doctor said the meds should act quickly. Hope so! She has tonight and tomorrow at a friends house and then she comes home on Tuesday.

Lolly said...

Thanks, BEagle!

What have you seen that causes a concern?

Lynne2 said...

evening all!

Poor Jacob! I sure hope those meds act FAST!

Been very busy day...revamped garden, replanted, mulched, blah blah blah.

I have posted the picture of the monarch larvae on my blog.

Heading for the shower now...been looking forward to it since the first gallon of sweat broke out this morning!

hedgie said...

BEagle, I can't find any current forum/chat anyplace!! What am I missing??

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Lolly, Lynn, and BEagle,
Ooooh--poor Jacob! He really must be hurting! Prayers for that eye!
Hope it gets better, quickly!

Glad you had a good time, Lynn!

Sure hope Lily snaps out of it and starts acting more like a mom! Glad Hope found her.

Hubby and I went to see 'Eclipse'--it was very good! Was nice to walk out of the theater and realize that it had cooled off quite a bit! Guess the break in the hot weather really happened!

Oh--pardon my manners!

Happy Anniversary to Carolyn and Charlie, and to Ashley and Michael!

Can only see Spidey's handiwork at our nest. I'm really feeling like an empty nester now! Glad I have all of you guys to fill the void!

BEagle said...

Did you copy and paste the link into your browser bar?

Ms Bookworm said...

Think that I really will clean up after the herons tomorrow morning, no matter what. Hoping that if Hubby's at work, (LOL) he won't be arrested for overusage of water, and can come and post bail. If they arrest him too, guess we'll have to rely on Jim to bail us out, all right! :oD

I'll take a couple of pictures, and you all will see why I'm having fits. Our entire piece of real estate is white-washed!!!! :o[

Lolly said...

I just love the eagle sounds at WE and the picture is rather eerie, but beautiful.

Ms Bookworm said...

Will be back later--dinner beckons.

BEagle said...

Type iws.org into your browser bar.

Look for "interactive" and when a menu pops up, click on the first selection.

On this page you will see a sentence above the three nests that says
if your connection is greater than
500 kbps to click 'here.'

Then you can enter a page with a view all three nests and a live chat.

hedgie said...

I did, BEagle but there wasn't any forum there!

BEagle said...

What is your connection power range?

Lolly said...

I copied and pasted and got the three with blog.

Certainly is noisy listening to TH

hedgie said...

Okay, finally got it, BEagle! TY.

Hi Andy!!! Glad you are cooling off. It was still 90 here at 8!

BEagle said...

Those nests are windy Lolly.

But isn't it nice to see all three nests?

BEagle said...

It usually takes a while for the blog to open up, but it will.

hedgie said...

35 yrs. ago this evening I was settling in at the hospital in hopes of preventing labor. Christie wasn't quite big enough or old enough and doctor wanted to delay the c-section if at all possible. It was not to be; went into labor shortly after midnight and they scurried to get an OR team in....and Christie was born at 2:15AM. Seems like yesterday.

Judie said...

Hi everyone,

Just stopping by before going in search of the sandperson.

Deet at PaPix.

We could watch the turtle shells not move but we could also watch for agent 00Jo to come sneaking past Boris's artwork.

Wishing Jacob fast sty relief, Lolly.

Sure hope #07 is okay and if in trouble, can be rescued.

Sounds as if most of us had a decent day in spite of the heat. Some thunder/lightning here so will probably shut down.

Turning my light off early but will leave the night light on for others coming in. Andy, please set our alarm, thank you.

Pleasant dreams for all. Prayers for Kailey, Karen, Delphia, Dana, and Ajay.

Costume Lady said...

HOW ABOUT A GROUP PRAYER AT 10:30PM FOR ALL OUR AILING FRIENDS AND RELATIVES?

Mema Jo said...

I'm ready - I'm going to pray the prayer Margy sent to us.

BBILW

NatureNut said...

Evening Everyone! Haven't read everything yet, but see that Lolly's little Jacob has a sore eye. I remember getting one of those around the third grade---it was horrible.Hope he's better soon.
Gonna check out IWS nests & find out the latest.Hope everything is alright.
And maybe they should have birth control for black bear girls. Perhaps the separations have diminished Lily's maternal instincts.

Costume Lady said...

AMEN♥

NatureNut said...

I was 2 minutes late, but will say a prayer now.

Costume Lady said...

If Lily is pregnant again, would she know that...perhaps that is why she isn't being as Motherly as she should. Don't know about bears, but deet run off their last offspring when they are expecting another fawn.

Mema Jo said...

Thanks Wanda - that was good.
I know we were heard.

OKay Finished watching the taped show with hubby. Finished eating my juicy cantaloupe!

New week coming up at us! Remember that I did send out email about
JULY 21 Wed Deb aka Raydoll AND then on JULY 25 Sunday Pam aka Pammysue have birthdays

Lolly said...

Missed the prayer time, but earlier today and will again pray Margy's prayer she sent out. It is beautiful as well as so appropriate.

magpie said...

Wonderful and touching idea Wanda ...you see I am late too because I was reading downwards insteads of upwards....
thank you...
prayer, is on the wing


Late Good Evening, Eagle Pals
xo

magpie said...

Wanda
depending on how the tomatoes seem to be ripening..I might pick some Monday....
feel I should test drive one first BUT I did promise you the very first one....

xo ☺

magpie said...

went to the swimming pool in Berkeley Springs park with James earlier...now THAT is the way to keep feeling young...

it's a great little pool....
and it was a great hot day to be doing that kind of thing

magpie said...

sorry to hear of Jacob's eye ailment Lolly....
hope it responds quickly to medicine...
always tough when the little ones are ailing....

magpie said...

very interesting, Dana's report of her earthquake experience

Good to see that Dana could post today...yikes expensive MIR -
praying for a good outcome !

magpie said...

Wanda
How is GG ??

Miss the daily reports

Mema Jo said...

I really hope there will be a late night report on Lily/Hope. I am interested in knowing that Lily didn't run off from Hope again!..

magpie said...

So how cool, Lynne has got some monarch caterpillars

You have a little time to think of some names for them Lynne

xo 'Night

Lolly said...

Yes, Jo, I am waiting, too, for a late night update on Hope and Lily. I am thinking it will not be good.

Lolly said...

We had pop up storms that dumped some heavy rain in some areas, but it went just north of us. sigh....

hedgie said...

Said my prayers a little late....was watching Army Wives.

hedgie said...

Goodnight, Margy. Hope you were slathered with sunscreen today at the pool! Hope your day goes okay tomorrow---long one for sure... :(

I, too, worry about Hope.

BEagle said...

We #07 is getting fed by dad now.
Reminds me of Palmer.

That stage where they mantle the food brought in and then chortle when being fed.

Positive progression.

BEagle said...

Gee it is late.

The mom just arrived at the nest with #07 and dad.

They will help their child.

Goodnight and have a sweet sleep. Have a lovely day tomorrow.

hedgie said...

Judie----severe thunderstorm warming for FX. Co.! Stay safe.
Heading for tub. WIll check back in a little while. Goodnight to any turning in. Prayers already said for all needs....will certainly say an extra one at 11 tomorrow AM for Ajay.

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, BEagle, Lynn, and Lolly,

I'm getting here a little late for the group prayer, but said it anyway, with a big AMEN! Sure hoping for some positive medical reports tomorrow!

Getting tired, so think I'll call it a day. SOOOOO grateful it's cooler here tonight! Supposed to get down into the 60s tonight! The night light is on, the porch light is automatic, and the eye scanner security is enabled. Prayers said for everyone. God bless, and good night! Will talk to you tomorrow.
Sweet dreams! Love all you guys! :o]

Mema Jo said...

Hope/Lily's update is there.


Link to latest update on our Bears

Mema Jo said...

Well I guess I can get ready to bed down since Hope is with Lily tonight.

Good Night All
Prayers for all
Hugs to all (( hugs )) ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Costume Lady said...

Sorry I am late answering your question, Margy...GG is doing really well. It has been nearly a month that she has had a turn-around in her health. She described her morning as such: "I got my coffee and sat on the porch and there in front of me came 2 fawns out of the woods. They both ran round and round in circles, over and over again. There mom stood at the edge of the woods and watched them as though she was so proud of her babies. Then they all left and then a beautiful breeze came and touched my face softly, like a baby's skin. I will always remember this morning...it was beautiful".
Brought tears to my eyes as she spoke so beautifully of her experience.

Lolly said...

Just do not know what to think about Lily and think the researchers feel the same. Poor little Hope!

Heading to the shower. Nite all!

Sweet dreams!

Costume Lady said...

Jo, that link hooks me up with a guy named Mike Werdebaugh??
Guess I will do some searching:)

Costume Lady said...

Ok...found update on Hope and Lily. Mother and child, sleeping together tonight!:)

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE
SWEET DREAMS
PRAYERS FOR ALL

hedgie said...

Loading a pic for Christie's b-day!

Better report than last night about Hope and Lily. Breaks my heart that she has to be such a wary and fearful little bear..........

hedgie said...

Will see you in the morning light. Rest peacefully, one and all.

magpie said...

Good Morning Eagle ♀'s and ♂'s -

Best wishes for your daughter-in-law's surgery today Paula... will be thinking of her, you and the family...prayers for all, and all the health care folks

Still Cam is Down, stuck at 0139 this morning
don't see any action at the live feed for NCTC yet...just hear little birdies

magpie said...

Great little report of GG's morning with the deer, Wanda....

magpie said...

I'm watching Finney, see parent and one chick, waiting for Mom Osprey to move to see the other chick.....

looks like a rainy day at Loch of the Lowe's

magpie said...

Hope it is a good day for everyone

xo

magpie said...

Okay, Mom Osprey flew out at Finney's - now I see that second chick....

magpie said...

hear a red-shouldered hawk at NCTC now

magpie said...

Happy 35th Birthday to your daughter Christie, Lynn ! Hope it is a great day for her.....xo ♥

magpie said...

Wanda
tomatoes get one more day of Sunshine, Vitamins D & K..and the benefits of the artificial "rain"

Andy
best wishes with the Poop Shoot Detail at your place, yes wear those gloves and maybe a little mouth-nose mask and glasses


Hope all things look good at all the nests and wildlife sites everyone is watching

James and I saw a flock of about 12 wild turkeys last night, two adult females and a whole bunch of juveniles...they were HUGE

Time for me to get ready to head out
xo ♥

magpie said...

PS
I sent an email to Steve about the Still Cam being down

Lynne2 said...

Good morning all!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRISTIE!
cute baby pic of her on FB, Lynn!

Margy, wow! Was it too dark to get pictures of the flock? I've never seen more that 3 at once, that must have been amazing!

Quiet, empty nest again. Well, even I am convinced now that Palmer will not return. Godspeed,Palmer! Live well and make lots of babies when you grow up!

Andy, hope you don't have too much trouble with cleaning the Poop Deck today!

I'm off...my landlord/neighbors have commissioned me to do some yard work at their new farm so I'm going to get started early before it rains and/or gets too hot.

BBL

Lynne2 said...

oh Lynn....how about Army Wives last night! So sad. Wonder where the writers are going with this?

hedgie said...

Good morning one and all!

Lynne---re" Army Wives---don't know but suspect there won't be happy homecomings for all.... :(

Rained some here early this AM, but not enough to be of benefit. Cloudy, muggy....sounds like more showers coming. PLEASE! Especially for Megan.

Christie was a scrawny little baby. My FIL could hold her in the palm of his hand! Had to use hospital preemie diapers on her for a couple of months....there was no way to get pins through a cloth diaper cause it had to be folded so many times!

stronghunter said...

Good morning.

stronghunter said...

Cool and rainy here this morning. I am not sure how long the rain will last. We are about ready to pack up and leave. I hope we don't have to pack the car in the rain. It does seem to be slackening up now, so I think we will be okay.

Judie said...

Good morning, everyone.

Fell asleep last night listening to the glorious sound of heavy rain last night. So very welcome.

Wanda, such a lovely morning experience for GG. I think it is wonderful that she is able to enjoy such moments. Makes for wonderful memories, too.

Andy, do use caution with the cleanup -- you really don't need a respiratory infection. Besides, if you are sick, who will woman our security alarm?

I suspect Dr. Bearfreud will be seeing Hope someday and treating her for separation anxiety and a severe inferiority complex. Sure wish Lily would step up and be consistent.

Paula, will be thinking of Ajay this morning. I know she's going to be just fine ♥

Happy real birthday to Christie.

Off to finish coffee and newspaper. Then will do some ironing as my imaginary ironer really is imaginary.

BBL

Judie said...

Safe drive home, Shirley. So happy you had some time away to relax.

stronghunter said...

Going to say bye for now. I need to go get my stuff organized. Check-out time is 11:00.

stronghunter said...

Happy birthday Christie and greetings to anyone else out there with a special event.

Hi, Judie. We will certainly try to have a safe drive home.

I will see everyone out there later.

Still raining here.

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning ALL in Eagle Land.

Internet Explorer just wants to freeze the homepage. So I'm using Foxfire.

Prayers for Paula's DIL Ajay and drs. and family.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO Christie

Shirley safe travels home. Glad you had a rest.

Need to read comments.

wvgal_dana said...

It shows no one has posted after me. So I'm checking this way.

Also Andy sometimes I worry about that "eye scanner". You know my eyes (both) still are acting up.Can you set up a "thumb print" for me lol

wvgal_dana said...

Well that showed everyone left. Probably over on fb. Just my luck.

Is the problem at WE or TH?

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning everyone
I need to read comments & check out some cams. I see our still cam is down but I do have the live feed running.

BRB

Judie said...

Hi Dana, you're posting just fine. I am absolutely sure that Andy will create a thumb print security system for you -- after she finishes cleaning up bird poop.

Well, my imaginary ironer friend has been here and finished the task. About time, too.

Now off to watch a murder trial and contemplate any needed changes/updates to the course syllabus for Fall. Going to have to get serious about that real soon.

Good to hear from Shirley this morning.

Can't help thinking about when I had my disc surgery. Anesthesiologist came in, introduced himself, asked if I were nervous about anything. I said yes. He asked what. I said you. He asked why. I said because you could kill me. He promised he wouldn't -- he kept his promise.

BBL

Mema Jo said...

Happy Birthday Christie - have a very special day. I'll need to look you up on FB with more wishes

It is great to have it raining as you get ready to leave vacation land to come home - safe journey Shirley!

Well I'll be darn - Judie why did you keep all the rain down in your neck of the woods?

Thinking of Ajay & Paula/family.
Praying this will be the answer to remove all the pain.

Lolly said...

Good morning! Ajay's surgery is starting soon if not already. Prayers for Ajay and the doctor.

hedgie said...

Hi ya', Jim, and all just coming in!
Yes, if on schedule, Ajay should be at least in the OR suite.
Judie, sure glad that ironing got done! When do classes start for you?
Bet George will be happy when Shirley gets home!

movin said...

Anybody know when Palmer fledged?? Doesn't seem long enough to have her leaving for good.

But maybe....

Sometimes, one or both parents waiting for the chick(s) to come for it, then eating it, IS a sign that they have moved on.

C(°ٿ°)D Jim

hedgie said...

Jo, I put Christie's baby pic on my Lair, too! Thanks for all b-day greetings for my girl!

Lolly said...

So, Judie is the guilty party! Hoarding all the rain! The nerve!

Just cam in from watering. It was 77 when I started, it is now 83 and heading up. Possibility of pop up showers this evening and more possibility of rain later on this week. Time to do the rain dance.

Happy Birthday to Christie! Need to find her baby picture. Happy
Birthday to you too, Lynn. ☺ I always thought it should be a day celebrated by the Mother!

hedgie said...

Plamer fledged on either June 13 or 14th, Jim.....so 6 weeks!

hedgie said...

Thanks, Lolly. My Mom always sent Grams a single red rose her own birthday!

hedgie said...

Whoops---make that PALMER, not Plamer!!! Duh!

Lolly said...

Have seen Christie's picture. So cute! Love the hair do. That is how I always combed Laurel's hair and she had a lot.

Need to get with it! Need to walk and then we are going to Fort
Worth to Central Mkt. Have already watered plants.

Have a great day!
