Costume Lady said...

On my way to GG's. Try to cheer her up because her guests for Familly Friday are all at the beach and all she has today, is me!

See you tonight:)

glo said...

Thanks MeMa Jo Saw your comment on the parchment prayer. Yes I will surely be there in spirit. I do wish all of you a wonderful day.

Mema Jo said...

Oh I just received a news flash & hope Lolly & Jack didn't witness this....
Worker dies after Harpers Ferry job site accident

A contracted worker died Friday morning after apparently receiving an electrical shock at a work site on the grounds of Harpers Ferry Center, Harpers Ferry National Historical Park spokesperson Marsha Wassel said.

WE HAVE ARRIVED!
Got to Shepherdstown about noon. Lunch at Betty's. Crabcake sandwich (not on menu) which was recommended by waitress. Outstanding. Betty is deceased. Pricey but really good.
Then went on an excursion to a costume shop. Darth went in alone and asked if he could get a Darth costume. The fun has begun.
Next went to NCTC and a nice man let us go in to drive up to the nest. No eagles but the nest is still there. Tried to coax Boris down but he's too savvy to fall into my trap.
Now at Comfort Inn after passing by Sheetz during our adventures.
Only a few more hours.

Lynne2 said...

Oh boy, this is like Christmas fun!!

Crunch Bob, so glad you and Doris will be there! Looking forward to meeting you!

Andy, Anne Marie, Jim, Glo, Chrissy, and others I am forgetting...you will surely all be with us in spirit tomorrow!!
Judie, so glad you arrived safely....bet that was fun when your hubby went in and asked for a "DARTH" costume!

Lynn, I'm so glad the turnout was good today and that this matter will be pursued!!

Well, I've got our little picnic lunch packed for tomorrow. It's going to be a beautiful day, and we'd rather use the money from lunch for some raffle tickets!

Getting my seeds together now. Magazines for Margy for James are packed, a special flag for Lynnellen is ready. Binos are packed, beads are ready! Have to take a bunch of pictures off the camera and put on computer to make room for massive picture taking tomorrow! Extra batteries are packed.

Now all I have to do is get some doggie bone treats, dinner and meds ready for the critters for Tracey when she comes tomorrow....and I'll be all set!!

WOO HOOOOOOOOO!

Lynne2 said...

heard a song playing in the grossery store.....something about a soul sister...by some group called Choo Choo or something. Reminded of someone, but who????

Lynne2 said...

oh yes, and Diann, and Lynne1...thinking of you too. Prayers for you both!

hedgie said...

ROFL, Judie!!!! So did Darth get a Darth mask???? Glad you had a good lunch! Is this Darth's first adventure in WV??? Is he impressed yet?? Sheetz had to have made an impression, LOL!!

Crunch, see if you can get a motorized cart at NCTC for Doris---they DO have them!

I heard that 911 call yesterday, Jo....too bad the guy didn't make it. :(

hedgie said...

Yes, Judie, everything is pricey in S'town!!

hedgie said...

Oh, Lynne......can't imagine WHO you are thinking of!!!! TOot-toot!!

Lynne2 said...

Okey Dokey then....gathering milkweed and butterfly weed seeds outside on a windy day is proving to be quite a challenge!

Lynne2 said...

well, Lynn, as luck would have it, my memory was jarred just a few minutes ago on FB where I left her a message!

Judie said...

Okay, I'm ready to partee.

Good thing I wasn't paying for lunchy. $24 plus tip for two.

Weird, as I was parking the car across from Betty's, I heard a choo choo.

Nah, Wanda wants to see the real Darth. Yes, this is his first adventure into WV.

BBL

hedgie said...

Time to get my butt in gear to head for the Clarion. See you there.....or tomorrow. Will sure miss those who can't join us. :(

Lynne2 said...

you all have LOADS of fun tonight (as if I even have to say that!) TAKE PICTUERS!!!

Lynne2 said...

ugh, I mean PICTURES

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Gang,
Checking back in. Looks like the fun has already started, with Judie and Darth visiting the costume shop!
Love the picture, Wanda!

I've gotten some of my Algebra homework done. Had to quit because of tired brain cells, though. Tomorrow is another day.

As you get together for dinner tonight, want you to know that I'll be thinking about you all, and wishing I could be there. Have fun!

Hubby will be home soon, so gotta go. Must finish vacuuming. Will BBL. :o]

Mema Jo said...

Yes, Judie, there are trains in Shepherdstown! lol
Andy, we will miss you this weekend but know for sure we will be thinking of you.....♥
Lynne, See you tomorrow!

Shaking my butt to get out of here and over to the Clarion........

Lolly said...

Hi all! Need to read back on the blog. Jack and I ventured out this afternoon to the park...Harpers Ferry. Have been there before but it has been a few years. Beautiful day and enjoyed our walk around. Took pictures from Jefferson's Rock.

Then we went to a costume shop but Wanda knew we were coming and fled the scene, She was at GG's having a G & T!!! Visited with Father Gene. Love Wanda's shop! Really neat!

Anxious to meet Judie and Darth! LOL It was so funny. Last night we were driving around and I saw a Sheetz Store and yelled. Jack could not figure out what I was yelling about. :)

Lynne, we are going to miss you tonight. Will take pictures!

Lolly said...

Glad I went back and read the blog. Now I have seen Judie and Darth's picture! Yea, Judie...looking forward to seeing you in just a few!

Lynne2 said...

Oh good Lolly! I'll look forward to seeing them!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Hey Soul Sister, ain't that Mister Mister on the radio, stereo, the way you move ain't fair you know! :-) Love it!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Wish I could be there tonight but will definitely be there in the morning! Can't wait to see everybody!

Lolly said...

You will be missed tonight, Sharon!

paula eagleholic said...

Have a great time at dinner, everyone!

Did anyone notice the add comment box right above the live feed on the outdoor channel? Sure hope we don't have a chat screen on there this season.

Lolly said...

I noticed it, Paula. Did not investigate but was curious. For all I knew it had been there a long time and I had not seen it.

Lolly said...

We are off to dinner. See you tomorrow, Paula!

paula eagleholic said...

Wanda, I sent you a very important email, please read it ASAP...

If anyone hasn't left for the dinner yet, please pass this message along to Wanda

NatureNut said...

HEY, HEY, WHATTA YA SAY? OPEN HOUSE IS A DAY AWAY!!!

Just looked at cam--no birds.
Checked S'town weather and Sat. will be 73°!!

paula eagleholic said...

The add comment box is not working at the moment....

paula eagleholic said...

Heading home, catch ya'll later!

NatureNut said...

Have a wonderful Friday night dinner to all those attending.
Judie, I'm sure there must be some Darth costumes somewhere!!! Can't wait to meet him!

I, too, will be thinking of all who are many miles away and everyone else that can't attend.
So glad to see Glo visited. I haven't checked earlier comments yet. BBL

paula eagleholic said...

Howdy, all!

I know everyone is having a good time at the dinner tonight!

I too will be thinking about everyone on here that cannot be in Shepherdstown this weekend!

paula eagleholic said...

Apparently, Lun Lun giana panda in Atlanta will have a cubbie!

Lynne2 said...

well, we are ready to go! WOO HOO!

Will be leaving her at 0800 and should arrive at NCTC at 0930...I'm sure we can't get in before 10 but we want to give ourselves plenty of time.

I guess once we are there, we will just look for you all!

paula eagleholic said...

Yes, you can get in at 9:30!!

paula eagleholic said...

I've got to get my camera ready too...

Lynne2 said...

oh good Paula! Now, when I say 0930 it might be 1000. LOL! Sometimes we get a bit behind in the morning!

paula eagleholic said...

I need to go cover up my tomatoes tonight...frost advisory in effect...

NatureNut said...

Hi again to the few of us that are on 'puters! ☺
Packed a couple things, switched to smaller purse, got xtra cam battery charging, etc.
Our friends from Paw Paw might not be able to meet us there---lady isn't feeling well. We'll see--decided to be there around 10:30 since EE will be leaving Clarion after 10 AM, I think.
OH, Paula, how exciting--a baby Panda!!!!!Keep our fingers xxxed!!

Lynne2 said...

Bear Report!

paula eagleholic said...

Bear Update!

Lily & Hope Have a den!

Lynne2 said...

well shucks,here we are with Bear reports and no one to read them!

Lynne2 said...

Hope Candy and her hubby made it here OK...no word from her yet.

Lynne2 said...

I'm going to hit the hay...will check back if I have a wee hour wandering tonight to see if there are any updates!

NatureNut said...

Just heard a news clip preview of local plane taking off & having a bird strike. Officials later found a bald eagle that was OK!!!!!

NatureNut said...

Oh Boy, thx for bear report. Hope it's not the "wet" den!

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Lynne2 and Paula,
I'm here! Thanks for the bear update! Looks like Lily & Hope have a dry den after all!

Paula, what great news that Lun Lun is expecting! Fantastic!

Bet everyone is having a great time tonight at the dinner. I'm thinkin' about ya!

Checked the live cam, but can't see much of anything. Too many Spidey webs!

Am hoping and praying that all of you get to see Belle and Lib at the nest tomorrow. Sure hope they cooperate!

Lynne2 said...

wow Loretta, you mean they think it was the eagle that the plane hit?

Hi Andy!

OK, really have to go get some sleep....

Ms Bookworm said...

I'm gonna go watch some TV. Will check back in a little later. :o]

Ms Bookworm said...

Sleep tight, Lynne.
Maybe I'll catch you later if you're awake and wandering around!

paula eagleholic said...

Nope Loretta, it's a new dry den.

Waiting for a report from someone from the dinner! Sissy should be there very soon. Candy should have arrived mid afternoon.

NatureNut said...

Won't know any details 'til 11 PM news I guess on the eagle. Pic of it looked good.
YAY!!! Lily & Hope did find a dry den!! Great place under fallen tree root ball. Seen lots of them this year! LOL

paula eagleholic said...

Lolly and Jack left 20 minutes ago, we should hear from some of them soon.

NatureNut said...

For all those hitting the hay, Pleasant Feather Dreams ;>)

And same to those after partying!!☺

Time for bed at this roost...

Lolly said...

Well, now I can get on. Jack and I got back to the park and immediately got on the computer to follow THE GAME. Wow! The Texas Rangers are going to the World Series! Unbelievable!!!

Great time tonight! It was so fantastic to see everyone. And, now I really know Judie, Shirley and Candy. Oh, and think that was my first time to meet Iris as well. So much fun this evening,

Also, guess I should say that "It" was a little "put out" that no one came to check on him. Poor "It"!

Lolly said...

I do think you were having a good time Wanda. Snitching desserts and sips of Irish Coffee.! lol

hedgie said...

LOL, Lolly, Judie wanted to go check on It, but you and Jack just wouldn't let her do it!!!

Glad everyone is settled in. Sleep well. Prayers for all. Big day tomorrow! Love you all.

Lolly said...

It is getting late, so I will say good night. Sweet dreams! See most of you in the morning! And to those of you who will not be here.....(((hugs)))...we will be thinking of you!

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Gang,
Just checking back. Soooo glad that you all had so much fun at dinner! Wanda, those are some nice pictures!

Sorry to hear of the eagle hit by the Jet Blue plane. Hope it's OK except for the broken wing. Glad they found it and took it to rehab!
Prayers for a swift recovery!

Good that you are all getting comfy and some are hitting the hay. Gonna be a busy day tomorrow! Can't wait to hear about it and see some pictures!

Going to turn on the night light and the porch light. Have said prayers for everyone. The eye-scanner security and Dana's thumbprint-scanner security are both enabled. Rest well tonight, and I'll talk to you in the morning.
God bless, and goodnight! Love all of you! :o]

Lynne2 said...

I do believe she/he is napping!

Lynne2 said...

if Steve wakes up and finds me down here staring at a sleeping eagle at 1:30am, he may just quietly slip away tomorrow from NCTC and leave me there!

Lynne2 said...

UH OH, I've been caught!!!! LOL!

Put pics on my blog...can someone put in album? I've got to get back to bed!!!

That crazy eagle is still there!

Lynne2 said...

wish I could stay and see how long the bird will be here...looks very content to be still and occasionally look around. But 6:30 comes early!

ANDY ANDY ANDY where are you?????? It's no even 11 in CA yet! Hope you check back SOON!!!

Lynne2 said...

I sure hope that Steve and I aren't the only ones who get to see one of our birds today....

Lynne2 said...

OK, one last check before I go up....still there!

See you in a few hours! Hoping Andy is watching TV and will check in at 11. Or someone else does.....WOO HOO!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Well, by golly, it looks like there is an eagle in the nest!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Looks strange though. Hmmm.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Head just popped up. I was a little skeered there for a minute. She must have fell asleep for a while.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Back to sleep and we are fixin' to hit the road! Sure do wish we could all be there today!

Lynne2 said...

WOAH! sure glad I didn't wait out the eagle....still in the nest at 5:43. I checked again at 7:15 and nest empty.

Gotta go finish getting ready!

NatureNut said...

Wow, Lynne, what a great sighting. 1 AM???
Great good morning to all!!
Hope to be there 10:30!!See you then!!!! ☺

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

Good morning!! Just had my shower and then to breakfast! Does anyone know if we are meeting at the Eagle Express somewhere or straight to the Momsters booth at NCTC?

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

paula eagleholic said...

Morning, all!

An eagle in the nest almost all night...how cool!

floralgirl said...

Wow! Good thing Lynne is up at all hours of the night, I suppose... Nice to hear one of the eagles slept in the nest for several hours.
Have fun at the open house, it's already a beautiful day out there!
Hope to see everybody later tonight. Have a great day!

Lynne2 said...

it takes like an act of Congress to get us out of the house anymore!
Leaving in 5 minutes, should be at NCTC shortly after 10

Safe travels everyone!!!

Lynne2 said...

I think there is an eagle I hear clunking.....lots of movement

Lynne2 said...

AAAAERRRGGGGGGG I have to GO....hope this is a good sign that we'll see them today!!

How exciting that several saw the eagle in the nest. Fantastic! I am jealous!

See you soon E buds!

paula eagleholic said...

Eagles in sightno

hedgie said...

Good morning all. Holding down the fort here......I am not going to NCTC today.....just too exhausted from two weeks of over-activity and emotional stress. Will hook up with everyone at the Clarion later.
So great that an eagle spent the night!

Happy Birthday to Mits' little Ben, and to Lisa-----she is on the OBX, and saw osprey at the exact location that we made a visit to on our way up the island a week ago---Bodie Lighthouse.

hedgie said...

Giving up the blog ghost here.....time to start getting ready to head out for the Clarion.
See all y'all tonight!

Paula, what does "three eagle express" mean this time of year??

Is Palmer still in the area?

[:~D] Jim

paula eagleholic said...

Typo jim

movin said...

Oh, OK, Paula. I also see now I misread "thee" as "three" instead of "the".

C(°ٿ°)D Jim

movin said...

Eagle just landed at BWO bearing a largish, silvery fish. Looks kinda like a gargantuan Crappie.

C(°ٿ°)D Jim

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Gang,

Wow! A middle-of-the-night eagle sighting last night!! Good going, Lynne2! Wish I had checked back, but missed it by an hour or so. You tried to get my attention, Lynne! Thanks for that. Fantastic pictures!!

Bet all of you are having a good time! Hubby and I went and saw "Hereafter" with Matt Damon. It was VERY good! Don't know HOW they managed to film the scenes about the tsunami. Film was directed by Clint Eastwood. It tells 3 parallel stories--one about a French TV journalist who survives a tsunami, one about a blue collar American (Matt Damon) who is psychic and communicates with the dead, and the third story is about a young British boy whose twin brother gets killed. I really liked it! It has a nice ending, too.

Well, better get going. Hubby's in the kitchen cooking, and I need to go help. Will be back a bit later.
Y'all have fun! I'll be thinking of you. :o]

paula eagleholic said...

Still at the clarion winning sttuff

Mema Jo said...

I just came over the mountain with Iris following me the whole way. I am exhausted - such an enjoyable day. Think I saw all the exhibits this time.
The dinner went very well and I think everyone enjoyed being there.
Until next year is hard to say when leaving.
Headed in to watch 9:00 movie with hubby. (I just may close my eyes and not see it all)
Love to everyone!

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

Good evening wonderful friends! What a great day it has been! Sorry everyone couldn't be there! Glo, your prayer was wonderful and perfect for the occasion! Thank you so much!!

stronghunter said...

Good night all. The end of a wonderful, fun-filled day. Thanks to everyone who planned the activities and set everything up. It was great to see everyone again and to meet those we hadn't met before. Don't have to go upstairs as I came up on the elevator awhile ago.

I know Will is doing a good job holding down the fort with all of the many critters at home.

See you tomorrow.

paula eagleholic said...

Home safe and sound from a wonderful day and evening...have to feed the puppy dogs...

paula eagleholic said...

I am laughing at some of my blog posts via my phone! We didn't see any eagles all day....except at dinner :)

paula eagleholic said...

I can't believe I won "IT". It is a beautiful hand made eagle!! It was made to hang on the wall. Will try to get a pic of it and post it on the blog shortly!

What a fantastic day! I didn't do the Eaglet Momsters table this year, and thoroughly enjoyed the Open House. Dinner at the Clarion was great. Thank you to so many people for their part in putting together a wonderful evening. We made a toast to all who couldn't be there today!

wvgal_dana said...

I've made it home.....the winners of the prizes paid before hand to win them.......us poor loosers ROFMLBO JUST KIDDING

So good seeing ALL those only seen through the eyes of internet.

Missed those that couldn't be there.

Little Man did good with the pill I came home earlier today before dinner and gave him.

I am so happy and thrilled with all the laughter, hugs, friends, and sharing good memories to carry along the waY.

Need to go get feet up.

Prayers for traveling miseries for those today and tomorrow.

Prayers for those that need them.

hedgie said...

Home again, home again, jiggity-jig.
What nursery rhyme is that from?? Duh!

Another great evening with wonderful people! Hope everyone had a good time!!! And have all settled in safely. Sharon and T-bird were driving all the way back to Bedford tonight, and Iris was heading back to here roost in PA----a long haul for all of them.

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

Good night my wonderful friends! What a great day!

hedgie said...

Got home to find a nice phone message from Glo wishing us a great time, along with sweet sympathy for my loss of Cinnamon.

Tub time. BBL.

paula eagleholic said...

Wow, didn't know Iris was making the long trek home.

Lolly said...

Yes!!! A fantastic day and an even better evening. However, I want you all to know the party is over here at the campground. You would not believe all the campfires, large groups sitting out, laughter all over the place. Kids running around having a ball. You should see the RVs! They are decorated to the hilt. KOA has a good thing going for families!! Jack and I fixed G&T's and walked around. Took some pics and going to put on fb. Come on over and we will build a fire...bring your own chair! :)

I think "It" went to a good home.

And now following TCU beat Air Force on the computer!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Wow, Lolly, had I known that, I would have followed you home! Such a nice evening out, glad to hear people are enjoying it...

Aw, thanks, Lolly. It is safely tucked upstairs until I can hang It up....and IT was named Palmer :)

Lynne2 said...

We are home, safe and sound, and I see some others are as well...praying that EVERYONE gets home safely!

What a FANTASTIC DAY!!! I can't thank everyone enough for all the work that went into our wonderful dinner party. Simply amazing!! Steve and I had the BEST time! Only sorry that we didn't have more one on one time with everyone! The blessing from Glo was beautiful, and it was great to have a message from Chrissy at dinner! Our eagles were a no show, but I think they may have been watching us!

Going to unload the car....hopefully will get to the pictures tomorrow or Monday!

NatureNut said...

Great Good Evening to all near and far!!
Got home at 9:21 PM! Boy I wish I got that chocolate dessert!!!!Got doggie boxes, but not chocolate!!!
What a wonderful day in so many ways and eternal thanks to all who helped put it together and brought gifts!I think the perfect person won Jack's eagle. Wish I could be at their campground~~sounds like fun. Might bring a tent next year---Fubby said something about spending the night next time & driving home on Sunday!!!!!!
To Sissy---so glad I got to see you wearing the Panda hat before we left. How kind of Jennifer to give you permission!!!!
For those that were at home, Sissy is sporting a tattoo of Tai Shan on her ankle!!!
BTW, ran into Steve Chase shortly after arriving and told him of Lynne's eagle spotting at 1 AM. He was pleased.
Gonna go unpack & eat more!!!!

magpie said...

Thanks so very much, Everyone!
The day, the evening, were great...As Jo said...so tough to say good-bye, well make that, so long, farewell, ta ta for now...

Glo, your prayer was divine...and Chrissy's message was cheerful...
and all the well wishes from those who could not be there, bolstered our spirits even higher.

The door prizes and raffle prizes were very nice, thanks to all who contributed, and the table gifts, the mug (Paula) the Eagle (Jo) the seeds (Wanda and Gene) and the Eagle "banner" (Wanda and Gene) -
just right. Thank You!
Dana, thanks for the Edible Arrangement for all of us, and the magnets.
Will remember what I forgot, sometime or another, and will add all that when I remember it !

Well, there's more to say Thanks for...but these are just some of the thoughts for now.
And Thanks, God, for perfect weather !

Safe Traveling Wishes for those still on the road, and for tomorrow's travels also

xoxo

Lolly said...

Lynn, forgot to tell you. Here at the campground, the campsite next to us has a COWBOY awning. They are from WV and great COWBOY fans!!! We talked with them earlier, they are fans because the BOYS are American's team!!(Their words! lol)

paula eagleholic said...

Posted a picture of IT

http://eagletmomsters.blogspot.com/

Will work on the Open House pics tomorrow after work :)

Lolly said...

TCU scored again...now 31 to 7! This is just the icing on the cake.

Glo, the blessing tonight was perfect. Thank you! Loved the note from Chrissy as well. You and others were missed.

Just want to thank everyone for all of their help, contributions and good will in making our weekend a great success. Hope everyone enjoyed the camaraderie that our coming together provides. You folks who traveled so far to be with us are tired, I know, but hope that the fun we had will keep you lively as you make your journey home.

TCU has scored again! Wahooo!

Okay, I am tired. Time to start getting comfy. Going to say good night, sweet dreams! To those going to the nest in the morning...I wish you an eagle. We hope to go tomorrow evening.

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Everyone!
Just checking in to see how things went at the Open House. Sounds like you all had a blast! Have been thinking of all of you all day, and tonight, for sure. Wow, IT is just beautiful! What a labor of love! Congratulations, Paula!

Can hardly wait to see more pictures and hear about today's get-together.

Ms Bookworm said...

For those of you that are traveling tonight, prayers for a safe journey.

If you are visiting the nest tomorrow, hope you get to see Belle and Lib!

Checked the nest a minute ago, but no eagles. Sure a lot of Spidey's webs, though.

I'm going to go watch a TV show, and will be back in a while to say goodnight. :o]

paula eagleholic said...

Loretta, I think ya'll had the pedal to the metal, LOL

Glad you told Steve of our overnight visitor!

I did bring home some of that chocolate dessert....saving it for tomorrow!

Hope Lib and Belle show up for everyone tomorrow!


Gotta hit the hay, I'm beat. Catch ya'll tomorrow.

Hugs to all ♥

I am getting on here too late to go into detail about our wonderful day. From the moment it started to the last good-byes in the parking lot,there was never a dull moment. Something to do or somewhere to go all day!
It was so special to finally meet Jim, Candy's fubby and Frank (aka, Darth). So happy to see Lolly and Jack once again and their travelling companion, "it";) Paula has a place all piced out for "it"!

It was so special to me that Glo wrote such a meaningful blessing and honored me by asking me to read it! Hope she can come to visit again one of these years:)

I am about to set off my "Keyboard Airbag", so I will let me pictures
speak for me while I go to sleep

Hi, Everyone,
Dropping back in to say goodnight.
Wanda, thanks for your pictures!
It's obvious how much fun all of you had!

Have said prayers for everybody.
Am turning on the night light and the porch light. The eye-scanner security and Dana's thumbprint-scanner security are both enabled.
Hope everyone has restful sleep tonight, with sweet dreams. Will talk to you tomorrow. God bless, and goodnight! Love all of you! :o]

Sorry to report there are no eagles in the nest at this time.

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE...

Some of the Momsters are coming to the shop this morning, before we leave for church, so I need to get ready now. I have posted some more photos on my JUST FOR FUN blog...more to come later, if you like:)
Have a blessed Sunday♥

paula eagleholic said...

Morning, all!

Still pooped from yesterday...gonna have a cup of coffee and get ready for work...ugh!

Lolly said...

Good morning! Had a great nights sleep, boy were we pooped. Such a fun night! Moving slow this morning, enjoying my coffee and then we will be heading out to explore, go the grocery store, etc! Hopefully to the nest this evening.

This campground really rocked last night, laughter everywhere. We loved it! Such wonderful, wholesome, family fun! Then it quieted down at quiet time. :)

Have a great day and will talk with you later!

Lolly said...

Great pics, Wanda. (except for a few) Gene did good!

paula eagleholic said...

FYI - our pair was in the nest last night and early this morning!

grannyblt said...

New thread up. Sounds like you all had a wonderful time. I was thinking of you.

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

Good morning! We went to Wanda and Gene's shop and got us a Halloween costume. She has so many great costumes it was hard to pick out just oneM. Then we went back the nest but no eagles :( Heading down the road back to Bluefield now. What a great weekend it has been!! Love you all so much! See you in the spring!

Tuesday
