Thank you, Steve. Hope the weekend is going well for you.Thank you, Jo, for the call over.I think the bar Shirley has in mind is called Attitude with entertainment provided by Rubber Band.Sorry about Steve's chain saw. Hope there isn't any serious damage.Hi, Jim. Glad the weather is cooling down for you.I need a panda nap!
Diann, enjoy youur dinner out!My eldest had her 20th HS reunion back in June....hard to believe they are getting so old!!! LOL!So.....bar party at Shirley's, huh? Road trip to Fredericksburg!!No sign of Myrtle today....but Steve did find a baby snake in the woodpile! Not venomous...I think it liked Steve!
You folks are so interesting !It's been fun catching up on the comments since I left earlier...
looking at this large black shadowy thing at edge of the 10 o'clock spot in our nest, but I do not think it is an eagle, just a different illusion I guess Wow, way cool pic of the squirrel...almost looks like a teeny tiny fox !!Thanks Dana and Paula - Good Work !I hear a train whistle now....Hello Eagle Pals !!
sounds like a great time at Lynn's Lair...with two great Momsters and a Dadster...and how neat, Christie got resolution and closure....congratulations Christie....very best wishes extended on the new job venture !
I don't think there could have been a more perfect late August day here in Berkeley County, WV !I worked in my garden...ha ha, such as it is, got some Mums, and pretty much tore down the tomato trees...I have two tomato fruits leftIt's so therapeutic and fun...and I forgot all about the shoulder...pretty sure your prayers (thanks, friends! ) and mine made a differenceAND, I will see the chiropractor Monday...he is familiar with my "case."
I am very happy to read of the good happenins' amongst you...sounds like a fun shopping trip for Shirley coming up...and a family meal later..
Diann -enjoy your evening - want to hear of the menu later !
rubber bands & hair thingys I have a bunch of both Shirley...funny tales....
Lynne and Steve just left....got a lot accomplished. Hard workers!! Hope they aren't too worn out. Big thanks to them!!
My sister was a teacher...some little person would spin a tale or give an unlikely answer to a question...."Now, if I ask your Mother (Father/Grandmother or...)will she tell me the same thing?"seemed to work, most of the time.Then the REAL tale would come outI have to get to bed, work looms at midnightfive of them (midnight shifts) coming upthen dayshift starting next Saturday...Okay, take care,Be of good cheer...Eat well, Smile, Laugh, RelaxPrayers for our many needs, and a lot of grateful prayers for gifts given God Bless Us, Every One xo ♥
Sleep soundly, Margy. Have a quiet work shift with no major crises. So glad you had time to work outside and, yes, it can be therapeutic.Diann, have a super pleasant dinner and evening out.Off to check t.v. BBL
Oh-oh-oh-----forgot to tell you all.....woke up last night around 2-ish....moonlight was SO bright. I stepped out and saw the moon and was it Mars that was to be so near and bright?!!! Beautiful duo, for sure.
Evening, all!Andy, something I meant to comment on the other day. The nest looks 'foggy' at night because of spidey's web!
Just heard a clunk by the cam...Worked till 5, stopped and took care of friends kitty, came home and trimmed and mowed the front yard...fed the dogs, played ball with the dogs...now searching for something to eat!
I am home from Mass & Dinner. I have the Ravens/Giants game on my PC10-0 so far in this 2nd qtr. I haven't seen any visitors except the squirrel at the nest. The little deer is in the elephant yard again.May watch a 9:00 movie on TV
Party??Lynn, Margy says that is Jupiter!
Thanks Steve for the thread. So glad you are around. Hope things are going well for daughter and you and family.Thanks Mema Jo for the call over.I have been hearing rustling around the cam area at the nest. Humm now is it a squirrel or eagle???Have to go check to find out what happened to Pam's Steve's chain saw.
I love mac and cheese.Lynn, glad that Lynne and Steve were able to help you out and vie versa.I can bring my own bar stool!LOL at George swatting at the birdies.
Thanks, Paula----knew Mars didn't sound right! Okay---I saw Jupiter----hey: Jewels of Jupiter by Train!! Good song.Dana--Lynne's Steve.......saw overheated a few times, and then chain broke!
Glad you found us, Dana.Gotta go find some food...
All this talk and emails about Mars and our moon being close is Not True."Mars will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye" - Not only is this not true for this year, at least part of it is not true ever. Google Moon & Mars in August.So maybe it is Jupiter........
Ok I got it Pam and Steve visited Lynn-Hedgie. Yep snake like him (:Diann enjoy din din out.Margy hope you have nothing serious. Daughter left a tomato lay on the ground or planter near the vine. Next year she had her own tomato plant grow.Is that what was so near the moon? Thanks Paula and Margy. It was so clear last night.Judie you take care...don't want a relapse.
Thank goodness Michael left me some pizza casserole!
It is definitely Jupiter.....The full Moon is having a close encounter with Jupiter. The two are so bright, you won't even need a sky map to find them.
I am down to one watch...every other one needs a battery. Makes me wish for wind up watches....going to try and take a bunch of backs off tonight so I can get batteries tomorrow at Walmart. I'm due for a run there anyhow.
I picked up my new glasses today at lunchtime. Bifocals. Gonna try them out tonight and see how they do...I know they will take some getting used to.
Whoo Hoo 2nd qtr and Ravens scored again.
Paula the best advantage of the bifocals is that you keep them on all of the time and you don't need to put them on - take them off- put them on - and on and on.
evening all!Just got back from the Lovely Lynn's Lovely Lair! Great day....great food and very GREAT visiting! Cinnamon was not sure she wanted visitors at first though! What a cutie pie she is!No Myrtle appearance. Steve found a little brown snake, not sure what kind but will google later. And WOO HOO!! NO POISON IVY!!Off to take care of the beasts and unload the truck....
Tonight I had a cup of the tastiestCrab Soup! We ate down in Middletown at the Main Cup (Old Main's Ice Cream location)
OK, it was a juvie Northern Brown Snake. Northern Brown SnakeI'll get some pics of him and others up later...maybe not til tomorrow.
Jo - Maryland Crab or cream of crab?
Cute little slug eating snake! good to have around.
Maryland - Paula Really loaded with veggies and tomatoes and lots of crab.
Half time - Ravens 17 & Giants 0Headed into the TV BBILW
Hello everyone.I hear clunking at the nest. Worth a mention. Maybe I can get up in the wee hours and see if the clunker manifests itself on the nest!The Redskins are confused, they are supposed to win.Pizza casserole has hit the USA!
Glad you are home safe and sound, Lynne and Steve!! Thanks again SO MUCH!Yep....that looks like the little bugger. Ha, PLENTY of snails and slugs here this year!! He hasn't fattened or grown much, tho'!Love Crab soup, Jo---either kind. There is a place in Hagerstown (northend--Maugan's Ave. maybe) called Casa Del Sol that has the best cream crab soup I ever ate!!!
Paula---did you get lined bifocals or progressives???? I had NO problem at all adjusting to progressives.
I can't get the Ravens game. Not on satellite. It's on over-the-air, but can't get Baltimore station!Nats are beating the Cards again....8-5, top of the 8th.
BEagle----Redskins WON last night!!Good to see you again!
They won? Who did they defeat?San Francisco? I haven't even turned my TV on lately!
Progressives are the way to go.
The Vikings had their pre-season game and I missed that too.I need to get back in the habit.
Skins beat the Jets, Beagle.Good to see you, BEagle.I got progressives...they are great!
I had sticker shock at the price of new glasses....so I went back, changes the frames, got plastic lenses and spent a lot less!
WV Political NewsWest Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin has won the Democratic Party nomination for the U.S. Senate seat held by the late Robert C. Byrd. On the Republican side, Morgantown businessman John Raese won his party’s nomination for the seat, beating out nine challengers.
I did notice it takes a moment for the eyes to adjust when looking thru the lower part.
Good to see you too Paula.I just checked on the IWS forum. The pictures are always so pretty.Not much on the eagles though. I was interested in any TH chick updates.I hope the Skins have a great year.
Double your pleasure, double your gum.....lol
Good you were able to change it, Paula!14-5, Nats win in 8 1/2 innings!
BBIALW---gonna go take my bath!
Anyone who replaces Senator Byrd....I am sure will come under close scrutiny!
Thanks, Jo, for election results. I am SO bad----I forgot to go vote!O's and L.A. are even-steven at Zip!
Paula, glad you are adjusting to the new glasses. I tired the progressive lens but just couldn't get used to them. They actually made me feel nauseous! Went to regular bifocals. OK pics up on my blog from today!
Hi, I'm back! Bought the purse and a pair of shoes. Danskos. I grabbed some supper and was headed to Walmart when my phone rang. Kathryn and her neighbor lady were headed out to eat, so I joined them and had desert while they had supper. Then we shopped awhile. I got the school supplies I needed, but didn't find a bar stool yet. I am going to look online. Maybe I can get one delivered to the school.
Hummm. I have the trifocals in progressive. It just seems to work which ever distance I need.Is this the first bifocals you have had Paula?
Ravens 24 Giants 312:55 qtr 4I hate movies that have MORE commercials than movie...........
Shirley - a bar stool arriving to you at school may not look so good. lol
I think I can have it delivered there if I am going to use it there. To tell you the truth, we have bar stools in the senior lunch area.
Hi BEagle that is what I have trifocals with lines. I love them the middle is so great for the computer.
Dana, my tri's are just perfect for computering and when I look at the keyboard, I just move my eyeballs.
I just got the laughs of my life !!I watched 3 or 4 maybe 5 times on fb page Helen's the video of Zhen Zhen the panda. I just had to keep replaying. It started and I don't mean very far into it. I was cracking up and in tears. ty Mits
Why does SHunter need a barstool?
Lynne - I thought they might make me nauseous, but they seem OK, just some getting used to. Yup, this is my first pair of bifocal glasses. I've had bifocal contacts, they work great.
Gonna go catch a little TV...
Need to get horizontal, kinda tired!
Dana - ZZ was really scrambling around with that box! I watched it a couple of times and also cracked up!Commercial time again.......Back to the Hallmark show
BEagle, I need one to sit on when I teach. I want to rest my feet.
I had the low and high lenses in contacts. Then got to the point I knew I needed to go back to glasses :(When I first got the bifocals, they were a little hard to get used to and I had lines in them. Still would rather wear contacts, but the progressive made wearing glasses much much better.I see spidey is doing his thing. Where does he get all that webbing anyway?
Actually, a counter stool might be what I want. Have been checking prices.
GOOD EVENING...and I do mean good!It is beautiful out. It was wonderful weather to be going to the Racetrack. We had a very long walk, but the balmy evening made it so pleasant.Once inside the Hollywood Casino, you would truly believe you were in Las Vegas. Slot machines on every square foot of space and table games with people gathered all around watching the excitement of the players.Food was good, but not exceptional, not too costly (21.99)It was a fun evening and we did get to see the horses just before we left to come home. I posted a collage of pictures on Just For Fun.
I like the progressives. But when I am going to read a lot or use the computer, I like reading glasses.
I agree BEagle. The eyes is all that moves. I have done better in them than I did in bifocals. For some reason with the bifocals. I was always trying to find the step down. Going to get my feet up and some tv.
Hi there, BEagle...where have you been?I was wondering about your where-abouts last night and also, Ragdoll??
We haven't heard from Ragdoll for awhile, have we?
No, not since she went on her vacation.Going to go back upstairs and get comfy, catch ya'll in the amHugs to all ♥
Hi everyone,Glad to see you all and to have you see back with all the bifocals and progressives.Shirley, have you checked out the music dept. to see if there is an extra stool that band/choral directors sometimes use? Maybe check out the school warehouse?Was trying to get some reading done but the sandperson is pestering me. So, am turning my light off but will leave the night light on for others coming in, headed back the hallway, down to the tub, up the stairs, or to the recliner. Pleasant dreams to all.
See you all tomorrow.Prayers for those that need them.
Sounds like a nice evening "out on the town" WandaNice picsGood Night to those heading for the pillows and already gone...do some good dreaming for me, whether you are using your monofocals, bifocals, or trifocalsGood to see you back BEagle !
I like the progressive bifocals, got sunglasses with the line...hardly ever use them now that I am used to my regular glasses....my buggy has tinted windshield and window glass, that help's a lot when I'm IN it...sounds like a good shopping tripShirleySounds like a great work day, LynneOh Crab Soup, any kind, but I do kind of consider the Cream Soup like a dessert !Speaking of which, someone at work is bringing me some home-made Peach Cobbler...now that makes going into the work tunnel a little easierGuess I better get ready to do that God Bless Us, Every One xoxox ♥
No, we haven't, Shirley.About your stool: the voice of experience says....buy a locking bicycle chain and lock it down to something in the classroom! Take a pic, mark it "Personal Property of..." in permanent marker and always carry the pic and receipt with you!!!O's are winning!
SO far, an excellent weekend of sports for the DC/Balt fans!
Looks like we're all tired out and need some sleep.Have a quiet and quick shift, Margy♥GOOD NIGHT MY FRIENDSREST WELLPRAYERS FOR ALL
Except for the Mystics :(
Wanda, glad you and the Capt. had a pleasant evening out! Two trips to CT in less than a week--whoohoo!
I'm following the leaders....hitting the hay as soon as the news is over, It's been a long day---fell asleep reading in the tub!Night-night. Prayers and peace.
P.S. Check out Lily and Hope!Bear Update
Well, thanks for the welcome backs. I didn't realize I was gone that long.Just busy.But thanks. So I wasn't driving everyone ditsy after all. :0It is late and for early morning, I should go hit the hay bales. My home is not self cleaning.You are in my prayers. ♥
TV show is over & also is the newsRavens are the winners of the night!Going to head down that hallwayGood Night EveryonePrayers for EveryoneHugs for Everyone ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Aww shucks! Just when I get to come back, everyone leaves. That's okay, it's been a long day for most.Jim & I went to Bob Evans for dinner. Prefer the Olive Garden but knew the time we left it would have been 9 until we got served. I had my usual turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and cole slaw. It wasn't the usual good fare and when we checked out and the young man asked how the meal was, I was honest. He apologized and offered me a dessert to take home.Brought a piece of apple pie home!Yum, yum. Haven't eaten it yet but hope Jim or youngest don't get to it before me.Lynn, Steve & Lynne glad you had a rewarding day. That's just what friends are for - to help each other. Bless you and I wish you lived closer to me.BEagle, welcome back from wherever. I didn't know you were gone so long because I wasn't here either. Bad me.This weather today was a winner! Now we must prepare for 5-6 days of 90+ humidity. Ugh... hurry autumn.Going to go outside and see if I can see the remnants of the full moon or Jupiter (or whatever planet is close to it). Totally missed ISS again. I'm always late getting the news of its passing over. That's my bad luck; without it I'd have no luck at all. ;-DMargy have a good quiet night and hope your shoulder is better.Hope to catch you all some time tomorrow.Prayers for all, especially BIL Charlie. His surgery is scheduled for tomorrow. Sunday? Can you believe that? Oh well ....Night all and God bless
Hi, Everyone!Finally getting to check in here today. My computer has been all messed up the last few days--extremely slow, cranky, and just plain miserable to deal with. I called Earthlink C/S, since the problems seemed to date back to when I cancelled PC Fine Tune. The rep got rid of a bunch of cookies and temp files, etc., and recommended that I do some updates. They took forever, but the cranky old laptop seems to be working much better now. Hope the trend continues!Haven't had time to catch up like I had hoped. Maybe tomorrow. Got to say, the weather was fantastic here today--we had our usual morning cloud cover back, it was MUCH cooler, and by 7 pm tonight it was down to 60 degrees with a strong, cool breeze! Yippee!I'm pretty tired after a busy day, so think I'll hit the hay and catch up more tomorrow. Have said prayers for everyone. The porch light and the night light are on. The eye-scanner security and Dana's thumbprint-scanner security are enabled. Hope everyone has a restorative night's sleep, with only PLEASANT dreams. Will talk to you tomorrow. God bless, and goodnight! Love all of you! :o]
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Have a GooD NighT,Everybody.^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^C(°ٿ°)D Jim
Good Morning, Sleepyheads!Time to get up :)
Good Morning Everyone...I am up and about! Suppose to be the beginning of another hot spell. I am off to Dutch's Brunch around 11:00I have planned a surprise family gathering for youngest son and dil's25th wedding anniversary. This should be fun!
That sounds great JO! I'm sure everyone will have a grand time!
Good morning!I lost the Internet last night, so I went to bed. Both Internet and television just went away. Checking with the music department is a good idea, Judie. I don't know about the warehouse. I've never even seen it. It is probably guarded by Annie the head custodian. I don't want to mess with Annie. When I was at the middle school, I used to find all kinds of neat things in the storage room, though.
George must have had some good adventures at the window bird feeder when I was gone. He is back watching for prey now.
A couple of years ago, I watched a bird actually taunting him from the outside of a window. It was funny.
Prayers for Charlie, Diann.
First I want to say Prayers are being said for Charlie Diann's BIL for his surgery today.Good Morning to ALL in Eagleland.Paula you are an early bird. (:25th Happy Anniversay to Mema Jo's youngest son and his wife.
The hummingbirds are battling it out again this morning!
Mine too Paula, guess it is because migration is getting closer.
I'll be back on after the celebration.Prayers being offered for Diann bil, Charlie to have successful surgery and for all the family.BBL
Have fun which I know you will Jo.That's too funny Shirley.The last weeks of our cats life she couldn't get to the window to watch the birds outside.So we fix up something and would put her up and down when she needed. I just know it filled her life with joy.Some how I nissed the blue link on Friday's Blog by Lynne2 at Guy sedated that 2 month old tiger cub. Flight from Thai to Iran. An over-size bag. Yea baggage scanner....happy for the little tiger.Hedgie-Lynn so happy for the help Lynn2 and Steve was able to give you.

Good morning! Catching up....Diann, where does your BIL live? "Elective" surgery on a Sunday??? WOW! A university hospital maybe?Sorry your dinner wasn't up to par. Hope No One touched your pie!!Jo is enjoying the party by now!!!

Good early afternoon.Welcome back to Diann and BEagle.Diann, sorry the dinner wasn't the best but sure hope the pie will make up for it. Also, prayers for bil's successful surgery and speedy recovery.Jo, what a very nice surprise for son and dil. Know everyone will have a terrific time.Congratulations Ravens.Wanda, glad you and the Capt. had a nice time.Happy Paula finished mowing before the 90+ weather returns this week.Hi Lynn and Shirley.Off to look at a discussion on good and evil I may use in class on Tuesday to try to get the wannabe adults thinking.BBL
Thanks for all the football talk in comments.Helps me keep up-to-date.I am still concerned about Lynne-Grannybelt??Has anyone got a phone number?Oh Paula I love baklava. Used to be, don't know if still is a resturant on Queen St. same blockbut on other side of street from where McCroy's was. Lady I worked with used to go pick up a piece and we would share the cost and share the goodies of one piece of Baklava. So GOOD !Margy I too have been watching the moon. So it was Jupiter that was hanging right near by.I just listened to a video that said "the moon is shrinking". Now it is happening over yearsand years. Cold shrinks---no it isn't going to disappear....it just has wrinkles in it !!ANYONE ELSE HEAR ABOUT IT? I hope you can get some relief for that shoulder.Oh my Margy that poor little 1 year old. Don't parents know to put the chain at top of door.THAT IS NOT SUCH A HARD THING TO DO FOR A WOMAN OR MAN !!!!! grrrrrrr Glad child is ok !Well I don't know whole story if someone went into other room for a second and she shot out.Still seems to fast for a one yr. old.Judie you are beginning to sound like yourself.(:Andy sounds like you was really tired Friday night.Hope you are well rested now.It is so terrible Shirley like with Kathryn you have doctors you like and have been with. Thencomes along a change in your insurance. Oh I DO know what that is like.
