GOOD MORNING STEVE...THANKS FOR THE NEW THREAD~
I forgot to tell you all that Chrissy's son is trying to do a drawing of Deb's famous photo of Lib and Belle. Won't that be super?
OK, back to drying my hair:)
Thank you Steve for the new thread. Have a lovely day.Good morning, Wanda.Not good news this morning. Lily's brother, Cal, has been killed. I am off to get my do did. Maybe that will help me feel better. Leg wound looks okay but am watching.
Morning all!That is really a cool idea, Wanda. Hope Matt doesn't mind helping out!!Have a good trip and be safe!Diann, I have all of my genealogy stuff backed up on discs. Worry about the albums with all the pics. No affordable fireproof safe big enough to hold them. Recently found out from insurance agent that they will pay to have photos reproduced if lost in a fire, so advised scanning all albums and putting on discs and keeping off premises----think that is going to be my winter project!
Such a shame about Lily's brother Cal. :( Cannot believe the distances he ranged!!Moon and Jupiter WERE lovely last night---but it was late before J. rose high enough to see through the leaves.
Thanks Steve for the new thread and Wanda for calling us over.Have a good hair do day Judie. Glad you leg looks good to you. If it starts looking bad please go to doctor!!I remember I had dropped a soda bottle (back then call pop bottle) on the concrete. It took a big piece out of my leg. My Dad pulled it together and cut out that white tags they now put across surgeries now.It held nicely and have very small scare. My Dad was my hero!! ( :
Thanks for support about hospital situation. Crazy thing is that workers let the security guard push the wheelchair across the fresh blacktop. Duh! If that's allowed, why not let people walk??!! Should all be re-opened today. HOPEING, because I was so frazzled that I forgot to get the stupid prep stuff for my CT scan coming up on the 4th, so need to go back tomorrow!
That crazy bright full moon did NOTmove the waters to bring that newgreat grand baby into the world YET.Still having contractions but water has not broken. Prayers for safe delivery and healthy baby requested.With that said Good Morning.
Have to tell you a cool thing....when I was 12 yrs. old I started babysitting for a military family in our neighborhood. They had 4 little boys--4,3,2 and newborn. They treated me like family, including taking me to the beach in the summers (Ocean City, NJ) where I met all of their extended families. Even met a classmate of one of the sisters, who wrote in the sand "pretty green eyes" to me! (He later became my afianced, but it didn't last. I have made contact with him recently on FB!) These folks even took me to dinner at the ArmyNavy Country Club for my 16th birthday! Lost contact after they got transferred. Well, I found the parents and two of the kids on FB....sent Friend Requests....no responses yet, but I am sure hoping for some soon!
Have you all had to type the Mystery Word before your first comment posts.
So sorry to read the Bear Update about Cal.
Good morning, I'm writing this from work this morning, but wanted to let you know what is going on in my life and my children's lives. My former husband (and their father) is having open-heart surgery today at noon. I'm saying prayers for him and for them. Today is Kathryn's birthday. Tomorrow, she gets results of a biopsy she had done last week. A bit of a hard time at our household right now.
Shirley, your plate is overflowing and not in a good way. Prayers going up still for all situations....know how hard it is to try to be supportive in some situations especially where there is acrimony. Hope the kids are all doing okay.
♫ ♪ Happy Birthday to Kathryn!!! ♪ ♫Update on panda cub at Zoo Vienna---translation is a hoot!Vienna Panda
OH NO MR BILL...there's an old flame burning in the heart of Lynnellen!That's really cool Lynn, I like facebook for that. I've hooked up with some of my old girlfriends from grade school which has been fun!Shirley, my gosh. Prayers for all.Happy Birthday to Kathryn!My new batch of hummer food is cool so I better fill the feeder before they start dive bombing the door.....
Shirley - prayers being said for all your situations. Keep your faith for all things to be resolved.♪♪♫♪♪ Happy Birthday Kathryn!Praying for the best of things to come to your life
Shirley prayers for the kids at this time. You have a lot on your plate.
Happy Birthday Kathryn!!!
Hedgie-Lynn hope they connect on fb with you. That will be fun to have them in your life again. ( :
Starting to recognize Carolyn's voice on the scanner....sounds completely different....it's the inflections not the tone/timber of it that I pick up on! Strange....cause Margy sounds the same as in person!
Three more stinkbugs just went down the flusher! I HATE STINKBUGS!
Severe weather warnings up for most of the area for later today.....stay safe everyone!
3 lion cubs born to Naba at NZ this morning!!!New cubs!Video of first two
You're a good Daddy Lion, LukeSeven cubs credited to him
Those flushed stink bugs are all going to climb up out of there one night andattack you, Lynn.. lol
Posted on Hornby Eagles FB:Changes coming
Update: Beverly Crisco Riffe Tom and I came home for a bit. Granny is stable for now, blood pressure is a little better and she is getting rid of some fluid. Far from out of the woods but better than last night. Thanks so much for all the prayers and well wishes. You guys are the best!!Let's keep those prayers coming......
Good afternoon! All beautiful here! Now I am really ready to set out on this trip!Shirley, prayers going up for all situations and Happy Birthday to Kathryn.Need to eat some lunch and start loading food. I want to leave NOW!!!!
So, sorry she has not had the baby yet, Jo. Has she been in labor all this time?So, is there romance in the air, Lynn? ☺ It is fun to reconnect with old acquaintances.
Did you hear that bedbugs are now being found in library books?? UGH!Up to 88° here. Beautiful but warm!
eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeGooD Morning (West)/SuppeR tIME (East)eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeC(°ٿ°)D Jim
pAIR of eagles has landed on BWO nest.C(°ٿ°)D Jim
LOL, Lolly, no---no romance! He is remarried. Many years ago when I was in Philly on business I talked to his dad and he told me that his wife had passed away and he was raising a little girl and living in TN. I gave contact info to his Dad to have him get in touch, but he apparently misplaced it or forgot to give it to him!!
Jo, don't think I need to worry about that happening!!!
You know, if these things JUST crawled, they wouldn't be nearly as bad as they are flying because they seem to like to divebomb me!
Going down to have blood drawn for SED test. This evening is Alexis' time.BBL
Fish crows at BWO now.C(°ٿ°)D Jim
Have a good day. I've got to do errands, shopping, etc.C(°ٿ°)D Jim
Gee....just had 17 drops of rain!
Hee hee hee!!! Just readied a certain item for packing. Hee hee hee!! Have loaded some food and have made a grocery list. Have also typed up our Le Menu list. LOL Do this on every trip so I remember what I have packed.
Beat you...we just had a 10 inch rain. The rain drops were ten inches apart! (and stopped!)
Hi,Sitting here catching my breath after another exciting day of English 11. I think I will eat a candy bar and then settle down and grade some papers. Kathryn has learned that her father did not have a heart attack; they caught the problem before that happened, but that is all we know.
Lynn, look before you sit! How nice it would be for you to hear from a voice from the past -- not the stinkbugs, of course.Jo, sure hope the baby comes soon. Must be very difficult for mom. Prayers for for mom and baby. Enjoy your Alexis time.Shirley, prayers for you and the children. I am so sorry for all the difficulty. If only I had a magic wand. Please wish Kathryn a happy birthday and sending a prayer for negative biopsy results.Encouraging news about Mrs. Riffe. I hope she continues to improve. Lolly, it's almost time. Maybe turn the pages of the calendar?Congratulations to Naba and her babies. Hope they will all be healthy.Leg is looking mushy but not oozing or bleeding. If it starts to look more scary I will try to see someone at an urgent care.Hi Jim and Dana.
Ha, Lolly, bet ours were, too!!So did you have to package and stow the item carefully?? Is it bigger than a breadbox?
My stink bug body count (hereafter will be referred to as the SBBC) is over 60 in the last 2 hours. I think for every one I kill, 3 more come. FYI, if you turn on a room AC that has a stinkbug in it, it WILL COME PROPELLING OUT OF THE VENTS.I think they have been planted, along with the bed bugs (which by the way have now infested the library in Frederick) by terrorists. I see more....will be back later, but if not, send help.
Yes, Lynn, had to handle it very carefully. ☺ Yes, in some ways it is bigger than a bread box but, then again, in some ways it is smaller than a bread box. ROFLMBO
Judie, if leg is looking mushy, may want to leave it open to the air! Shirley, hope you get to head home soon. A trying day, I'm sure. Sometimes it's hard to be supportive...:(93° here currently!
From Bev on FBBeverly Crisco Riffe Granny has taken another turn for the worse. It is getting harder for her to breathe because of the congestive heart failure which is causing her heart to overwork and making her pacemaker overwork. Please keep praying for her!
Was just getting ready to post it, Lynne. Thanks!
I didn't give much blood - only 1 vialGoing to head out to get Alexis.......BBL in time for TV shows 9:00 Criminal Minds - It ended lastseason on a scary note.. hope it finalizes that theme tonight...
Granny Riffe - Praying for your health and comfort.
Thanks for the service error grrrrYes I too want to see Criminal Minds tonight Mema Jo.Prayers continue for Mrs. Riffe for her health to continue to improve.I read comment where Naba's got her babies 3 cubs. This will be wonderful. With the cubs from her sister being born so closetogether. Cub fun...Judie take care of that leg!!!I was coming home and heard behind me on 901 near the entrance to my development sirens. I raced to pull in and OVER. I just knew it was coming in here!!! Yep it did. Just in and past the gate. Later I spoke to a lady in a vehicle sitting there. Baby choked and could not breath. I think started breathing as Ambulance got there. Prayers anyway for the baby.
Have added 15 to the SBBC in last hour....this is truly ridiculous.Okay, Lolly.....IS it or ISN'T it the size of a breadbox? You can't have it both ways, kiddo, unless it's collapsible! AH---maybe Jack carved one of those spinning things that DOES collapse when it's not hanging...???? With an eagle in the middle??
Hey Lynn, I put a gauze 4x4 on to get more air rather than non-stick. Think the mushy is from antibiotic cream and being covered. May keep gauze on for tonight and tomorrow just to keep protected. Fairly large gash. Have you thought about an exterminator? Not for me. For the stink bugs.Maybe Jack made an eagle accordion for our entertainment. It will fit into a bread box but expand to bigger than a bread box. Can't wait to hear a Texas version of Beer Barrel Polka.Need to finish grocery list.Hope Shirley is at home and trying to relax and de-stress. BBL
So sorry about Mrs. Riffe and continue to pray for her recovery.
Dana, remember to make a copy of your comments before posting. Outsmart the stuuuuupid blog cop.
Judie, unless it is looking angry red or pus is evident, don't use creams or ointments! Better to wash gently with Betadine. Cover when out and at bedtime, and open to air rest of the time.
Hey, gang, that guy on Jeopardy for the past week+ (lost last night) was a graduate of my high school!!! Annandale High, Annandale, VA! Lives in Delaware now.
Thank you nurse Lynn. I think you've got the best advice. Think I remember that from when I gashed my leg some years ago. Will do.Missed Jeopardy this week. Sorry he lost. Maybe you could contact him via fb. Yet another man in your life?
Lynn-Hedgie don't flush stinkbugs. They can swim....keep fly swatter outside (all the time). Take stinkbugs outside and kill them. They then are no longer an "egg producer".Mema Jo praying for a healthy baby SOON!!!Judie I do type on notepad and copy and paste onto here.
Lolly I'm not guessing cause I won't win it anyhow. Although if it is chanced off I will buy chances.
JudieThank you for listening to nurse Lynn-Hedgie. It makes me feel better. You are doing that.
Wow did you all read the news as to why the Titanic sank like it did. Said "all" could have been recused.link TITANIC DID NOT HAVE TO SINK
link works for Titanic
Hi everyone. Prayers continue for Mrs. Riffe and adding Shirley's family. I hope I didn't miss anyone reguiring prayers. If I did God will know what's needed.Lolly, you're going to continue to tease us, huh?? I see that Jo will get a George 2. How nice.Almost cried reading about Cal. How much we get attached. My Dad was a bear hunter but I never (that I know) ate bear meat. I lived with my mother. PA's season is only 3 days and fortunately my guys never hunted bear.Judie, I hope your do did and your leg heals fast.Okay! those d@#$ stink bugs are trying to get in my old house. It's hot today and I opened windows. That was a mistake. Every screen was covered with them and 2 got inside. Yikes!!! The recent storm, of which we got a nice amount of rain, seemed to settle them some. They are so frustrating. I thought I saw some young ones hanging on a shed door. Am I getting paranoid?!Lynn, you're right about saving genealogy records and pictures. SIL got me a safe a few years ago and that's where all the paper records are, but the computer held the family tree on Family Tree and I'd hate to have to redo that. Must start supper here. Will try to get back later and catch up.
Judie, LOL......he's much too young for me!!Dana....where are the stinkbugs going to float to????? They can't get out of the septic tank!
100 SBBC and still counting. Backup has arrived home from work.
Interesting story about the Titanic, Dana. Never heard those facts before.
one of those d@#$ bugs just hit my netbook's screen. thought I had him in a tissue but it got out and don't know where it is .... I thought I saw a stink bug.... I'm under attack - send in the troops!!!bbl off to find the enemy.
Okay, Jack told me to tell you, that it will not fit into our breadbox....do not know about yours!☺It does not spin, it does not collapse, it does not talk, it does not sing, it does not produce any kind of music. It does not dance. ☺
LOL, Diann---I think the stinkers are making most of us a bit paranoid!
Guess after 11:09 tonight, we can officially call this weather Indian Summer. :(
Okay, Lolly......you know we'll keep guessing!!!
I hope you do! I am having fun!87 was our high today and we have a cool front coming. Hopefully we will get a good rain before we leave. Mowing in the morning and then NO MOWING for a month! Wahoo!Of course, then we have to pay for lawn mowing. Not good!
Hi Diann. How's things going except for the stinkbugs? Never been a problem here before. Does cold weather make them go away? Hope so.Lolly, does "it" scream like an eagle?Hi Dana, yes I am going to obey our nurse-in-bloggerville. Don't want to answer to her if I don't.About the Titanic -- wonder about the motive given and why anyone would wait so long to reveal the truth.
Nope! Does not scream like an eagle. In fact....it is very quiet!
Evening, all. Looks like a small storm hereNest is very breezy, but I don't see any rain on the radar
I was just out watering and the storm blew in, think it's blown out now, just some sprinkles :(
Yes, Judie, I agree with you. Not wanting to besmirch someone or cause the company trouble are lame excuses when so many lives were lost.
Hi Diann good to see you here( :Looks like we are getting ready for a fierce storm.Lynne2 what is 100SBBC???It stated in the article (blue link above) about not wanting to get in trouble. I also think it had something to do with maker of Titanic JMO.Oh No Mr. Bob...Hedgies-Lynns septic needs cleaned out due to all the built up stink bugs.
Howdy Y'all...the nice big fat Moon is up sure am hoping a couple of eagles will plop into the nest for one last summer fling...
Margy, nice to have you with us. Had any time with James recently? I don't know about the eagles having a last summer fling but Lynn seems to have some hot prospects!
Hello:)Check out the moon tonite if you can, the harvest moon- Harvest moon
Very quiet? Hmmmmm. A deck size eagle bird bath?
Going out to see Moon
Oh no, bedbugs in Frederick?!?Lynne is the SBBC the stink bug bathroom collection? Just keep a small container of amonia water handy, and drop the SB's in there, it will kill them and save on water.Shirley, hope everything goes OK for the Ex.Happy Birthday Kathryn! Hoping for negative results, too.Jo, hope the GGB comes soon!
Back in it is Beautiful. Thanks Megan for the name of it. ( :
Hmmm interesting about the Titanic.
Hot Diggity Megan!Thank you...sure is a treat to "see you" whether you tell us the name of the Full Moon or not
Says it won't happen again until 2029. I'll be 80 yrs old by then. That is if I live that long.
Oh, gross....just had a %#!*^# stinkbug fly (or get blown by ceiling fan) into my hair while I was on the sofa.
got some catching up to do on all today's blog posts....the old and the new threadwill do some speedreading and come back in a little bit
I am getting concerned. If an eagle flew into the nest it might get stuck in spidey's web. Yuk! It is a mess!
Hip Hip Hooray Margy is on the blog!!!!!!! ( :
Just look isn't it just disgraceful how that spider web holds up in all that wind!!! Maybe they need to build houses like that.
Lynn-Hedgie did you find any cats a home? I didn't-tried no luck.
The thing about it Lolly is the eagles nor when we have eaglets. Do they ever have a problem with the web.
We got a little more rain than I thought, but still have to go out and water. Glad watering time is almost over!
Long time no see on the blog, Megan.howdy, Margy.Warming up some dinner before I finish watering.
We're getting another storm. Glad I saw the moon before it hit. maybe bbl gonna shut down
Harvest Moon...a beautiful name for a beautiful moon, and in other years with more rain, a beautiful thought...harvest...hoping that all our gardeners and farmers and especially Megan, had some bright spots along the way...
cool outside....in the east we have Harvest Moon which is orange, and Jupiter. In the south and north we have massive clouds with lightning! Lightning looks much closer to us than storms showing on radar, south is approaching Annapolis, in the north they are running along the MD/PA line. Amazing! See now a cell developing just west of us. Off to watch The MiddleSBBC is Stink Bug Body Count
I'm thinking it should be almost "2300 hours" seeing you on here this early Paula...but, two nights in a row no evening eagle visit...Wahh !Well, there is always tomorrow Hey there Dana...that call for the baby came in right at shift change...sure hope everything turned out okay....yep, right in your neighborhood
Well that was sure an easy Final Jeopardy.....2 of the 3 got it right...so did I! But I should----have a very old book full of TARTAN patterns!Had a few more drops of rain...nothing beneficial for sure.Dana, bet the septic tank bacteria is the only "natural" predator those stupid bugs have!!
Hi, Margy. Sounded like your day was mighty busy.
From an article I just read:The stink bug's eggs are yellow, yellow-red, white, or pale green in color and can be found on the underside of leaves in clumps of 20 to 30 eggs. Eggs are only found outdoors on plants because stink bugs cannot reproduce indoors. Thank goodness for small favors. My avatar is the eggs.
Just found out bats and praying mantises eat stink bugs.
I'm not sure some of you are going to want to hear this but here it is:For those of you who have eaten authentic mexican food, chances are that you have EATEN stinkbugs raw and/or cooked. Mexicans use them in salsa and various other dishes as a flavor enhancement and filler. That is the 2nd time I have read that and different places. I ain't eating no mexican food!!!!!!!! :(
the eggs are pretty Dana.....Lynn, how're you doin', Pretty Green Eyes, NOW I know what Judie meant when she said you had a Hot Prospect...thought she was referring to Indian Summer at first ☺
Dana, I don't know anyone (besides Ginnie) who is a cat fancier! If I did I would find homes for Carolyn's many cats before Charlie murders her or them!!
Wonderful Harvest Moon link that Megan posted....very informative...love that kind of stuff !
Shirleysure hoping that our thoughts and prayers and (( hugs )) will help you and yours through the difficult times that seem to be hitting all at onceand Happy Birthday to your Kathryn ♥ xoxo
Whoops, sorry, started wading thru college financial aid sites. I get lost quick. Hope everybody is doing ok. Dana, you're making me nauseous...
and Judie...hoping your boo boo...will heal quickly and without another visit to a doctor!yes Lynn..busy day...grandson gets out 3 hours early Thursday, his "real" maternal grandmother and this ol' step grandma are going to team up for some kid fun in Berkeley Springs, so I have the day off...Judie - I'll get some James time in for sure !
Hi, Gang,Almost out the door to school, but wanted to say "hi."Prayers, prayers, and more prayers for Granny Riffe! Glad her BP is better. Hoping for her speedy and full recovery!So sorry to hear about Cal bear! Prayers for the rest of the bears.HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Shirley's Kathryn!! Prayers for the whole family situation, Shirley.Well, gotta go--will be back much later tonight. :o]
wow the live nest with the floating squiggly spider strands, is something elseokay recess is over, back to the laundry and the dishes and straightening upHope this is a good night for all...Good luck with those financial aid sites Megan....ttfn xox
This may help:I have used mint leaves on the windowsill pretty effectively.They seem to not like it. I have plenty of mint since it keeps coming back.Or get yourself a pet "praying mantises". I'm going to go to the pet stores and see if I can find a Giant Pet Praying Mantises.He should eat plenthy of them. lolLynn-Hedgie it did say flushing is best and to watch they do bite.
Wonder if Sissy has heard anymore about Mrs. Riffe...??
Oh boy good news.....Margy is going to get some James time!!!!!! That will be perfect and wonderful.Well I am going to see what my tv has on it. Will check back in later.Sorry Megan didn't mean to make you sick.
I am free! Playdate has gone home. Homework was done and school fund raiser was filled in by Mema..I sure wish this Harvest moon would get the waters moving so I can harvest me a new baby! Going to clean up around here and settle in to watch Criminal Minds at 9.
Thank goodness I can check up on my family on FB..... Aunt Heather.."just got an update...I'm sure you did too!! haha... Mojo and Mike are hospital bound....wonder if the baby will make it by midnight?"I am wondering if they'll make it to the hospital in time......... ha ha
Not to worry, Dana. They are wrapped in TP---I'm sure not picking them up bare!!!!Margy, good to have a day off again!Wonder if our county gets out of school early, too??JO----almost time for Criminal Minds!
From Bev on FBBeverly Crisco Riffe We live to fight another day! Granny's respirations have been bad off & on all evening but she woke up a while ago & was fairly alert. She has had alot of company this evening, so grateful for such a wonderful family. She is a pretty sick woman, bless her heart. Thanks so much for all the prayers. We're wore out & going to bed. Mary Ellen, Rita, and Steph are staying tonight, so pray for them. Love & hugs!
Hope Wanda and Fr. Gene made it safely to their destination!
Happy for Margy's opportunity for James time. Judie, do take care of your leg. Dana, I would not want to have a pet preying mantis. Yikes! Wanda, I love the idea of a drawing of the eagle photograph. Maybe I need to expand my Facebook contacts, Lynn. Sounds like you have done very well. Waiting for more news about the baby, Jo. Lynne, how much longer do you expect the hummingbirds to hang around?Jim, I hope you had a successful shopping trip. Gotta go upstairs and check on Hunter. See you tomorrow. Goodnight. Got word that the heart surgery went well.
Thanks for all of the kind words today. I really appreciate it.
well Shirley, as it turns out, the last time I saw one today was early afternoon. I wasn't out a lot today, but I usually see them every time I look out and I didn't later in the afternoon. So, I'll be anxious to see if I have any tomorrow, but this may have been the last time.
LOL.....no contacts of that nature being made on FB, Shirley!!Glad your long day has come to an end. Sleep peacefully!
I still have several hummers here, emptying my feeders. don't give up on your feeders yet, you will still get migrating ones and especially juveniles who need to pack on some weight before they leave. We often see them into October, really just depends on the weather. Later gators!
Hedgesville grandkids are headed to Wash County Hosp about an hour ago.I am hoping they made it in time....You just never know.... I'll be on here shouting as soon as I know something.... Praying for safe delivery and healthy child.
Hello Megan I miss you not being on here I see you on FB Are you working with the Farm this fall season?
getting us all excited about the impending birthing baby news Jo...wow, a Harvest Moon baby perhaps?could make for some neat baby name ideaspraayers abound...
new wordpraayersoh yes migrating birds...that can be some real excitement too...remember when it gets coooold we can start listening and watching for the Tundra Swans
I could officially put in for Oct 23rd off at the end of my work day today...so I did !usually nothing more than 30 days in advance will get considered, until it's 30 days in advance, or less
just had a look at Jupiter and that gigantic full mooncan see two of J's moons, one to the left around 8 o'clock position, and one to the right, much closer to Jupiter, at about 3:30 position...not the easiest things to spot especially with the brightness of the moon
Dana, cool avatar pic of stinkbug eggs. Found a couple more here tonight. Was dive bombed once. Appreciate the info on authentic Mexican food. Think I will just continue to prepare my own, thank you very much.Margy, so glad you're going to have time with James. Please enjoy the time away from work and with him.Shirley, nice to know you are home and do hope you will be able to get some sleep to restore your body and mind.Megan, nice to have you here tonight. Thank you for the harvest moon info.Jo, I do hope ggbaby arrives safely and in good health. Will be waiting for the announcement.Andy, hope school was easy tonight. Any exams? Grades?Thinking of Mrs. Riffe reminds me I need to send a card to Karen. Haven't heard anything in recent days.

Hope sleep brings comfort and renewalPrayers for wellness.....(Yay, got stinky escorted outside) God Bless Us, Every One xoxo ♥
Well, after a quick look outside to see the Harvest moon and Jupiter's moons, I will be in search of the sandperson.Turning my light off but will leave the night light on for others coming in, headed back the hallway, down to tub, up the stairs, or strolling in from school. Pleasant sleep for all and prayers for Mrs. Riffe, Jo's gd and ggb, Karen, and all others.
News just said that chickens like stinkbugs......ha! Wonder if that makes the eggs stink worse than eggs already do??!!Hoping that my battle is done for today....ARGH!!
I am joining those saying their goodnights. Would love to wait for word on Jo's ggbaby...but have a very early morning again tomorrow. So sweet dreams and comfortable rest for all. Prayers for all in need. Love y'all.
Nothing yet - hope I hear before I go back the hallway... Doubtful - I'll probably get a morning call!
LOL Lynn at stinky stink bug eggs!Margy, glad you will able to join us all day!!!
Hitting the hay. Night friends.Hugs to all ♥
Going back the hallway shortlyGood Night EveryonePrayers for all those with needs/wantsPraying my gd is holding a newborn in her arms but I won't know until morning. I sure hope sleep comes fast!Hugs to all ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Well, I did an overload of Criminal Minds. Never have watched it. See what an influence you have had on me.Jo, I do hope your gd is holding a newborn right now. What a wonderful thought. I was right beside Laurel as she gave birth to both of the boys. What a blessed experience.
Dear friends I'm heading to my chair. Getting real sleepy ...yawn.Blessings for all wants/needs and good health to all in need.Tomorrow, tomorrow, ♪♫ ♪♫♫goodnight.
Hi, Everyone!Got home from school earlier than usual--about 1/2 hour ago. Have been reading the blog. Megan, thanks for the Harvest Moon info. (The moon, and Jupiter, are bright and clear here tonight. Just beautiful!) It's great to "see" you here again! Been missin' you! Wish you the very best with the financial aid. Sure wouldn't be in school without mine! Prayers for you!Shirley, glad the heart surgery went well. Prayers for you and the family! Sleep well tonight.I'm wishing a pox upon all those pesky stink bugs that are bugging you guys and gals!!! Yuck, yuck, yuck!Very interesting info about the Titanic. Tell you though, I suspect I know EXACTLY why it sank.Saw a documentary a few years ago about it, and they said there was aplaque on one of its decks that stated, in effect, that "even Godcould not sink it"! Talk about thumbing your nose at the Almighty!Not a very good idea IMHO.Judie, have an English test next week, and it's supposed to be a tough one. Prayers, please. Got an 'A' on my Practice 4 exam last week! Thank God! Hope your owie on your leg is feeling better, and you aren't too stiff or sore from the tumble.Mema Jo, prayers that you will have a new little family member by morning! Bet you can't wait!Margy, good to see you! When do I sleep? Usually very late at night, and very early in the morning, after Hubby has left for work. If I'm really tired, I fall asleep just about anytime I park myself in a chair! LOL :oD (Hubby jokes about me falling asleep at the movies, but I say it's worth the price of admission to get a really good nap!) Good thing I don't seem to require as many hours of sleep as I did as a younger person. I do well on about 6 hours of sleep now.
I need 8 hours of sleep,so I am heading to bed.Night all! Sweet dreams!
Speaking of sleep, Lynn, hope you get a really good night's rest so you can make an early start tomorrow. Maybe you should get a couple of chickens to gobble up some of those crazy stink bugs for you. Well, I'm gonna go sit in front of the TV and veg for a while. Judie has left the night light on (thank you!), and I'm leaving the porch light on for lateniks. Prayers have been said for everyone, including Karen, Granny Riffe, and Shirley's ex-husband. The eye-scanner security and Dana's thumbprint-scanner security are both enabled. Sleep well, and I'll talk to you tomorrow. God bless, and goodnight! Love all of you! :o]

Good Morning Everyone!!! See the eagles came early and dropped off a GGS for Jo!!!Congratulations!!!Had one of those late Panda naps last night after dinner & didn't comment, but did read some late last night.Yeah, Margy gets the 23rd off!!!!I haven't seen hoards of stinkbugs down here, but there were about 4 on the inside of screen door at work! I flicked them all off so they won't get inside.Got a phone call this AM that we're getting company from TN to spend the night!!!! I'm always the last to know. So, gotta shovel the house! ☺
Good late morning.Congratulations on the arrival of Marcus Philip. This is a good omen that he arrived on a day both eagles made an appearance also. Wishing the best of health to MoJo and Marcus.Done with the wannabe adults for the week. Good class this morning. Lots of questions and ideas about serial killers. This is the kind of day that makes teaching a great experience.Going grocery shopping with Darth when he picks me up from school. BBL late this afternoon.Stay cool.
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<GOOD MORNINGTO YOU ALL.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<C(°ٿ°)D Jim
Ok watered and you know what that did.....led to doing other thing...now I have to get 3 bags of red lava rock to put around the plants I weeded out.Then that mean't another shower and washing my hair, drying it and then curling iron.Now I'm headed out.The pics I took this AM of eagles I will put in album this evening when I get back. Will also check to see if anyone but similair ones in.
Last year all the family was at Open House - Hopefully you will get to meet Marcus then......... ♥
I need to get some things accomplished around here so that I can sneak up the road and into the hospital to Hold that new kid! :<]BBL
I'm home, settling in and trying to catch up!! Got my elbow skin injected and a lesion frozen. Picked up my CT stuff at hospital---which turned into a real run-around. Have killed 8 stinkers today---4 before I left this morning and 4 just now. Bought a cucumber and I'm going to try a trick that is supposed to work for slugs in the garden----who knows, it MIGHT work for these, too!
Jo, don't you dare try to kidnap that little bundle of joy!!! Congrats on a healthy baby!!! Judie, so glad your class was a good one. I sure wish I lived closer----I would audit it!!Loretta----your kids like to surprise you, huh??!!! Maybe it's better that way----doesn't give you too much time to knock yourself out.
Afternoon, all!I see thru my email that Jo's GGS finally arrived. Congrats Jo and family!
The count is rising.........I've gotten about 25 of the stinkies already today now. I am going insane.No fair---saw that they apparently did get some decent rain in toward town last evening---some big puddles still around. Our 17 drops were nothing but a tease.
Good morning! Boy my laptop is slow. Has been slow since Mike worked on it and cleaned it up. Very frustrating!Guess I should have said good afternoon. Got right to the yard this morning. Now it is up to the yard guy to take care of it this next month. (He won't do as good a job as me!)☺Congratulations, Jo, on the new addition to your family. Hope you are down there right now cuddling this new little guy. Nothing better than holding a newborn. Heading to the store to do last minute grocery shopping. We are getting our tasks accomplished one at sa time. Going good!
Hi, Lolly, Lynn, and Paula,Back again for just a bit. Have been busy cleaning up the kitchen. Now that that chore is done, need to shower and go to school to drop off my homework and sign the attendance sheet.Have been trying to figure out what's going on at the house behind ours, where the trigger-happy jerk used to be. Sounds like they're doing some renovations, with lots of hammering and loud banging noises. No lights on inside the house at night, so don't think any people are living there. MTBR....Judie, I'm glad your class went so well this morning. Wish I could audit your class, too, but afraid the commute would be a real pain!Here's another picture from our recent trip to Lake Arrowhead. This was taken at a kids' park that has a sandy beach and a playground. There are a lot of Mallards there, and it's next to a golf course.Well, better take a shower and hit the road. After homework is turned in, no more classes until next Tuesday. YIPPEE!! Will bbl. :o]
Have arrived home and groceries are stored away. Andy, get tonight's homework turned in quickly and race toward a nice long break. Suspect there are some renovations -- new neighbors on the way?Lynn, glad you got chores over but really sorry about the stinkbugs. Lolly, it's almost time! Is "it" more than 3 lbs?Dana, you are really making me feel guilty. Really need some serious weed removal here.However, I think I will retreat to the kitchen. Hamburgers tonight.
Eagle at BWO
Hi ya. Just heard on Ch. 4 NBC, they are going to do story any second on STINKBUGS & their removal.
